00:01:15--> 00:01:31

Why should we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us an Imam in the deen and what are the qualities that we have to have in order to be immense? And inshallah tada we're going to begin on page 21. From the

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

very top of page 21.

00:01:37--> 00:01:54

A wall is exalted, he has praised his believing servants who beseech him to be people who are rightly guided and who stand out as role models for others to follow in their guidance. He said in the if he wasn't living Yoku,

00:01:55--> 00:02:02

as virginiana with Ruby now for the afternoon. Which element that being that he man

00:02:03--> 00:02:57

and those who say Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring, comfort to our eyes, and make us an example for the righteous tell you on how the law will pay him back Mr. Lo tada here. He says that a lot praise His believing servants, who asked him who begged him to be people who are rightly guided people who are rightly guided and then he mentioned that I wear lots of hats Allah says Allah denio coluna bene heaven and I mean as well Gina was the Tina kurata Yun, which which they translate here as a comfort to our eyes. And what we'll begin to cover inshallah is that quote, what to aim when something is the comfort is translated here the comfort of your eyes, there's

00:02:57--> 00:03:08

actually a level that is beyond just loving something. So it actually means that you find delight in this in this thing. So

00:03:10--> 00:03:40

the Do I hear that the bad men are making right because this is do I that is me, this this comes in the context where it says sorbitol for pi 74. So we're towards the very end of sorbitol for time. And that last part of SoTL for kind of loss of habitat is talking to us about the sea fat or the characteristics of the servants of our men. So his chosen servants they say Rob Burnett have Olenna

00:03:42--> 00:03:59

which herb means here to gift to us and Allah is Al Wahab that's from his names right. He is the one who gifts if you will rent from us give us a gift from amongst our wives and our offspring make them what

00:04:01--> 00:04:19

a delight to us and make us what Janna little mud tokina II mama and make us for the monoterpene and Eman. Make us an email and we'll talk about why it's singular here in shallow tide. Like

00:04:20--> 00:04:21

I forgot this part.

00:04:22--> 00:04:36

I forgot to get the juices flowing. I noticed that when I saw some people looking at hamdulillah fire. We need to ask some questions first so you can get your minds and get your minds ready in Charlottetown. I'll tell you, I read the first question.

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

What is jaggies Katzir for makers and men? Why is the working man singular here? What are the three types of suffering is translating suffer as patients? Okay. Talk about the consequences of succumbing to shoe hat and shut away

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

How can they be repelled? Why was faith in the laws decree of God? not explicitly mentioned among the fundamentals of Eman

00:05:13--> 00:05:26

tight? So going back to, to page 21 and the AI that we have with us, let me just ask you this. What, what was the last thing we talked about last week?

00:05:31--> 00:05:52

Okay, so the 10 points about what what 10 points? Well, we're about the necessity of guidance why we are so in need of the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala at every step. And the last one of those even Okay, I mentioned what what was the 10th thing? Why do we need guidance? And why is it important?

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

It's right there. It's not it's not a trick question.

00:06:07--> 00:06:54

He says, look at the look at the Enter paste at the end of page 20 said a person was guided to some matters, yeah, also needs guiding, advising and directing others to what he was guided to, as this will maintain his guidance. This is from the filter of imminent kayam romulo Tada, by the way, you're not going to see this everywhere. That filk here he's telling us look, in order for you to continue being guided by Allah subhana wa Tada. You need to take the opportunity to do what guide others, teach them what you learned, and you need guidance from Allah, to have that instilled in you to want to teach others. You understand you need that guidance from Allah. And then when you guide

00:06:54--> 00:07:02

other people, then what Allah Subhana Allah meets that and Jesu Min Jin Solomon, that the reward is what

00:07:04--> 00:07:52

is of the same type as the as the deed. Right? And so when you guide other people that are lost parents, Allah increases his guidance for you. Similarly, you've heard the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu. Sonnambula houfy own l&d, man kanilang dupioni, I feel alone will continue what helping his servant as long as that servant is helping his brother. So the desire to maintain Solomon, that the reward is of the same type as the as the deed. So as long as you are taking that time to guide others, then that is an increase in guidance for you. You see the transition and now now what because that's important that you be from amongst the people who guide people, then you should be

00:07:52--> 00:08:00

asking a lot to do what to make you a person who guides others to make you an Imam.

00:08:01--> 00:08:48

That that's why he brings up this eye, you see how he transitions into the eye? Right? So because, again, a lot of people read this and if it can feel if you're not following it can feel disjointed. How did he get from this point to that point, but it's very logical. So if you want to be somebody who is guiding other people and therefore getting increased guidance from Allah subhanaw taala, then you need to ask Allah to make you any man. All right, and that is why from the seafront or from the characteristics of the service of man, is that they ask Allah along with asking him to give them from their wives and from their offspring, from their spouses and their offspring, a delight to

00:08:48--> 00:09:09

them. They also asked to make us an Amen for the monoterpene for the people who are pious and righteous type. What does it mean to make your act when you ask a lot to make your your spouse's and your children or your offspring, a delight to you?

00:09:10--> 00:09:14

And Hasson Mohammed lozada has an adversity Rahim Allah.

00:09:16--> 00:09:37

He was asked about this is is this dealing with the dunya or the hereafter? Right that they that they are a delight for us? And al hacer la hemo loads Addison that benefit dunya this is this is referring to the dunya munyaradzi Jetta who were what are the who you plead Hoon Allah

00:09:38--> 00:09:45

when a believer sees his wife and his children obeying the law, this is a a delight to his eye.

00:09:46--> 00:09:51

For for a real believer Subhana Allah. Right. And then

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

one of the first series yes aluna Lucha de as well to him would look at him and yeah, do

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

Home little Islam. There are lots of Hemet data that they are asking Allah to to guide their spouses and their children or their families to to Islam. And this is important when we think about what does it mean? What does it mean for my family to actually be somebody who delights me? Right? Is that you see them upon the obedience to Allah Subhana Allah for a true believer. This means the world this is better than them graduating from this school or from that school or getting this job or that job or having this business of Reaching this milestone.

00:10:40--> 00:10:48

All of that if they are not obedient to Allah subhana wa tada what does it really mean in the long run? Was it really me

00:10:49--> 00:11:10

Subhana Allah so this is this is some of what has come in the tipsy of making them a comfort to our eyes. As it relates to what does it mean what do I Nan and what Akina mmm and make us an Amen. For the talking for the people of taqwa. If and I'm Ben sasse.

00:11:17--> 00:11:44

Ready level and Matt said commenting, it means Oh God, yeah, I will make people guided to the good through us. I will saw that commented, it means that people be guided through our guidance and said, that's actually McColl even though it looks like mokoia but it's McColl as his name.

00:11:45--> 00:11:59

Said, it means those examples in righteousness, righteous, our exam, type Stop, stop there before we get to vj heads Tafseer so my best buddy Allahu Tana and Homer

00:12:01--> 00:12:38

said, who was the cousin of the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam and from the famous companions, even though he was young. He was young, when the prophet Isaiah salatu salam died, but he was from those whom the prophet Isaiah Salatu was sytem kept close to him, he may do it for him, he said Allah COVID-19 wa Lim who attacked we'll Allah give him 50 of the dean and teach him the interpretation of the Koran. And so, even our bass was one of the most famous scholars of Tafseer and he was even known amongst the companions who were much older than him he was known to be a scholar of of Tafseer

00:12:40--> 00:12:53

five he says that this means make the people guided to good through us and I will solid rahima Hello to Adda his name was bad then

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

he was from the

00:12:57--> 00:13:02

from the great scholars of the Tabby and the Tabby are who

00:13:03--> 00:13:28

they the students of of the Sahaba their students are the companions and he says it means let people be guided through our guidance, okay, and MC hold, who died who was also from the taburiente. But not he wasn't from the Kibana tambien. It wasn't from the the

00:13:29--> 00:13:59

each each level, if you will, like from the Tabby, and then those who come after them, it's bad to me. Even amongst that larger title, there are sub categories, if you will, right. So you have what they call the Kubota Tabby, right? Like Like I will say, by then, and then you have the salted Tabby, right, those in the middle and then you have Suharto in the latter ones for most of them. So he's from the middle tabbing mcode.

00:14:00--> 00:14:20

But he was he was well known. And so he says here, let us be examples and righteousness, so that the righteous follow our example. So all of this is that we be what examples for for other people who come after us pipe within Mujahid say, mu j.

00:14:22--> 00:14:23

Rahim. Allah

00:14:25--> 00:14:34

commented, it means Oh, make us followers of the righteous ones. And that's us. Their exam type who was who was Mojang.

00:14:36--> 00:14:36

He was

00:14:38--> 00:14:57

he was a student of him and I best which I had him in Java mohalla. Also from the qivana. To me, it was a student. He was one of in terms of Tafseer he is the well known student of Urban Affairs. He said that he stopped it when I'm best at every I and the Karina asked him what's the Tafseer right. So yeah, what am I saying?

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Well, jack commented, it means

00:15:00--> 00:15:22

Hola MC as followers of the righteous lines, and let us follow their example in righteousness. Okay, so mu j says make us followers of the righteous ones and let us follow their example. Time. They say anything about being a leader

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

doesn't say anything about being an example for others.

00:15:29--> 00:15:49

No, no, it doesn't. It doesn't. It says we follow their example not that we become an example for anybody else, right? So, so notice what it says here, make us followers of the righteous ones and let us follow their example. Okay. Time does that seem like

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

that interpretation works?

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

Or do you see an issue here?

00:16:00--> 00:16:02

Okay, then how are you looking

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

at it from the perspective of

00:16:07--> 00:16:11

the previous generation if you if you become one who is

00:16:12--> 00:16:13

righteous and should be followed?

00:16:15--> 00:16:42

I sent very good Hello, hello. Yeah, that's exactly. That's exactly what I was going to say about this because some people didn't understand it that way. How would this if I'm saying Oh, Allah make me any man. Right? And then somebody else comes and says, that means a lot make me a follower, then it might not make sense right away. Right for some people. And this is what I'm allowed. Tyler's going to explain by the way.

00:16:43--> 00:16:54

Just a side note, commercial break. mccole McColl was was not from he was not Arab. And, and he couldn't pronounce off.

00:16:55--> 00:16:58

So instead of saying, Paul, he would say cool.

00:17:01--> 00:17:01


00:17:03--> 00:17:16

they say he used to have to have a lot of problems. And and I remember that it was a brother who you sit in the same crime circle and we were when we were in Medina. And we said when we first got there,

00:17:17--> 00:17:42

we used to sit with the children because that's how you that's how you learn. That's how you learn. I mean, we weren't at the level where they allow you to you know, to read to the to the big shakes yet because I mean, we've come from America we don't know any better. But um, so anyway, this this brother was reading from soda tillbaka and he said, cool, man can I do what libertine for in the who knows Allahu Allah Kelvin?

00:17:44--> 00:17:52

Not colleague because he can pronounce off whoever is a whoever is an enemy to jabril

00:17:54--> 00:18:22

could McKenna do well, Eg Videla for in the hoonah zela who say whoever whoever for most you is an enemy to jabril didn't know that he sent it down and he lost friends Allah sent it down through gibreel Allah called Big on your heart to your heart. If you say Allah Kelvin was that mean to your dog? matsya the Quran teacher almost had a conniption I'm totally flipped out he was like What do you mean?

00:18:23--> 00:18:28

He said called Big you know like really correctly anyway so when i when i

00:18:29--> 00:18:36

that's just a commercial break. So when I when I when I think of McColl I think of that of that is Panama

00:18:39--> 00:19:04

you just yet when you said my hola hola yeah but but that's a lot even though he was a puppy I mean he was any man McColl but he can pronounce the coughs power which is which is a which is encouraging honestly and even it what it means is that even without proper pronunciation you can still become a 4k inshallah be any ma'am and indeed now

00:19:05--> 00:19:32

by way of masala okay vj right. So the issue here is what that Mojang said, what make us followers, you see that here make us followers of the Mottaki emulating them. Where's everybody? The other tip see is that you see talk about the making us what making us a role model and an example for for the righteous people. So it is a little different and its appearance. Yes. followship.

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

The explanation is from Jay he was found problematic by those who did not comprehend the knowledge of the righteous credit predecessors or realize the depth of knowledge they had. For this reason, they objected by arguing that according to his explanation, the meaning of the ioway inverse to me, oh law, make the righteous be the example we follow.

00:20:00--> 00:20:46

Seek refuge in a world from such a treatment. Such a statement mistake such a statement, because it is impossible to find any iron with reversed meaning in the end, because the statement of Mooji a man a woman in golfing with his mercy, I'm not sure about the double because here so he so first of all, is just seeking refuge with Allah. I say Allah forbid that any of the statements in the Quran have a reversed meaning, right, they all mean what they mean without reversing them around. And he's saying that the statement of Mujahid by him a whole lot more to add it actually means what it indicates His perfect indicates His perfect comprehension, since it is obvious that a person cannot

00:20:46--> 00:20:58

be an example that the righteous follow his lead unless he itself follows the example of the righteous ones right. So this is basically what was being said before right, which is that

00:21:00--> 00:21:52

a, a person is not going to be an E man worthy of being followed. Right? Until he himself becomes a follower of the Imams before and so this is what Medina is saying. Make us from amongst the true followers of of the M and it's like mmm acmella Hey Mahalo to Allah say yakka and teta. Katelyn Murphy Miss Ella tiene Lisa nunca fi hagie. Ma'am, beware of speaking about an issue in which you don't have any man for that statement, making up your own, you know, interpretation of things be wary of that this would email me saying so. Even our Prophet at a salon was sent and was told by law to do what it tendered men letter, Ibrahima hanifa. You follow you follow talking to the Prophet it

00:21:52--> 00:22:30

was him follow the Miller the the way of Ibrahim. So even our Prophet sallallahu wasallam in that sense, did not deviate from the message of the prophets who came before him and in fact, was a follower of the way of Ibrahim in terms of his he was Hanif that is turning away from the obedience of other than Allah subhana wa tada and the worship of other than Allah and turning to the obedience of Allah Jalla Duran. So that being said, a person who's asking Allah to become any man, which we should ask, because sometimes people think, Well,

00:22:32--> 00:23:00

you know, we shouldn't be asking a lot for positions of leadership. That's true, but this is different. This is not asking Allah to make you a leader in the sense that you are in front of the people that you are some type of soul tied, and you have authority or so forth. It's, it's asking Allah Subhana Allah to make you a role model for the people of of righteousness, which means that which means that it entails that you have to follow the righteous who came prior to you know,

00:23:02--> 00:23:51

this is the aspect that mindjet intended to highlight, which explains how a person can attain this high rank. That is by following the example of the righteous people who can see him. So as a woman makes the righteous ones succeeding him in time to follow this example. Truly, this is from the best understanding of and as explained, it is irrelevant to the issue of reverse, meaning I'm not sure we got irrelevant, but it basically has nothing to do with with the reverse meaning Now, that being the case, whoever follows the example of the predecessors who adhere to the sooner his example will be followed by those who succeeded in time. And also by those who did in the same era of is the word a

00:23:51--> 00:24:27

manner translated to an example for is used in its singular form. And, as can be noted, on law, the most high did not use the plural form of the work. It should say it's just a word instead of work. Yeah, who have the word as the I did not need to say make us examples for the right. Okay. So so let's just explain Okay, what's the issue here? The issue here is it says what john Nash make us make us What?

00:24:29--> 00:24:50

And he man. So why does an essay make us m&ms of the righteous? Why does it say make us an email? We understand that the issue because us is what? plural? Right? So why doesn't it say make us m&ms? Why isn't the word Eman?

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

plural Why doesn't it say a man's or m? And it just says Amen. Why is it singular instead of plural? This is what he's going to explain right now. Right? This

00:25:00--> 00:25:31

has been explained by many scholars some of whom explained that the word Eman is the plural of the word AM. But this interpretation is not that uncommon to be found in the famous usage of the Arabic language. Hence, such understanding cannot be used to interpret or explain the words of a law. Other scholars said the way a man is not and this is where you say German Germans the IMG word, right? Usually, yeah, that that shouldn't.

00:25:33--> 00:25:47

Okay, isn't that isn't, but rather, it's not a noun, but rather, the mustard is usually what they translate as a Geron even though it must stop is is a verbal noun and doesn't necessarily have to have imga.

00:25:48--> 00:25:53

That is a noun that is derived from a verb and usually preserves the verbs syntactic features.

00:25:58--> 00:26:07

It implies the meaning make us to add any man and this interpretation is that even is an ever weaker opinion is actually

00:26:09--> 00:26:21

it should say an even weaker isn't it is even is an even weaker opinion than the affer mentioned one. Yeah. Anyway, don't you don't have to get too far into that. This is this is the more important part right here on philosophy.

00:26:24--> 00:26:51

The reason why the word the man was used in a singular format, and that's plural, is because it falls under the category of the singular that is intended to refer to a plural, just like the word messenger using the ayah. We are the messenger of the lord of words, right in that in that we are rasuluh the messenger or belanda me behind me, right.

00:26:52--> 00:27:08

So So here, this is it says here, where the word used a singular lawsuit, though it refers to two persons because it's talking about both Mussa and how can I name a senate? But only the singular was used? Why? Yeah.

00:27:10--> 00:27:25

We're using the AI We are the messenger of the world. And that's not the only place where that comes into crime by the way. And it's not the only place where it's using the Arabic language where where a singular is used, and the meaning is plural. Now, we're in Word.

00:27:27--> 00:27:59

Two persons. This interpretation is the best is the best of all, but still requires further elucidation. Uh huh. Still requires further elucidation meaning, why why is it that the singular is using even though that's permissible from a linguistic perspective and that happens in the language and sometimes the singular is used and it means the plural but why here doesn't say what your Nan little mutter Pina Mmm, why is it Why are we only talking about one here further, says

00:28:01--> 00:28:02

five. So

00:28:03--> 00:28:07

he knew cetacean wow that is a five syllable word, Lord.

00:28:08--> 00:28:31

Now, this interpretation is the best of all, but still requires further elucidation. That is, all the righteous people walk in the same path with the same same God adhere to the same book, believe in the same Prophet, and they are, and they are all servants of one Lord. That is their religion is the same, their prophet is the same.

00:28:32--> 00:28:48

The Divine book is the same, and the land that they worship is the same Hence, it is, all of this makes out the man that they fall. In other words, it's as if they're all one. One example.

00:28:49--> 00:28:58

It says if they are all one example, even though there are many of them, they are one example because they're all following the same way.

00:29:00--> 00:29:16

This is the absolute opposite of the case of the man whose views paths, beliefs, creed, and methodology are different. Thus, in reality, following the example of the righteous means following with a nine

00:29:18--> 00:29:27

G. pipe. So if we were to sum that up, why did why is the word e ma'am singular here instead of plural?

00:29:33--> 00:29:59

Because they're all in the same thing. Right. So and that is why it should handle law and you can go to the real mams. And it's not that it's not that they won't differ in opinion like that they won't come to different conclusions, but their way is still the same. Their way is still the same, their methodology of interpreting texts

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

Still the same now, how the fact that that leads to different conclusions is okay?

00:30:08--> 00:30:51

Because that's just the reality of the human being why some of the campaign's heard from the prophet Isaiah Salatu. Salam don't pray, acid until such and such. And some of them thought that that meant what? to hurry up and get there and pray awesome. And some of them said, Nope, this is exactly what the prophet SAW them say. And so they interpreted what they heard from the Prophet, it is someone who was sent him in two different ways. And neither one of those groups were sinful. Only one of the only one possible, meaning the prophecy someone couldn't have possibly met both because they couldn't do both. So the prophet SAW you send them only meant one thing. But the fact that they

00:30:51--> 00:31:15

heard that and it was possible to interpret it two different ways. They still were going back to what, to what the prophet it is, Salatu was Salam said, understand that was their source. And it wasn't their intellects or what they thought might be better or whatever, they were still going back to that. It's just the fact that they understood it differently. Right. So the sources are the same. No.

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

Yes, sir. Patients.

00:31:24--> 00:31:40

By the way, even though claim did not say the facility, our facility, or anything like that, this is just from the the translator and perhaps any book that they got it from in Arabic, but it just says Fussel chapter, right. Patience, uncertainty, and the

00:31:41--> 00:31:56

most high in the state of being any man in religion, that is a religious person. People take as a role model to follow in steps is earned is earned to patients and certainty. He said.

00:32:00--> 00:32:04

I don't I don't particularly like the translation is earned.

00:32:07--> 00:32:22

And that's that's not exactly what it says. It's in Arabic, it says to Nan, and it's reached. So how so again, what's the Do I hear the do i is what Jana who can say the Arabic

00:32:24--> 00:32:35

was an Alan mattina. Mm. Right. Obviously, that's not a DUI by itself. Right. So the glass starts off with Rob banner, right? Have 11 as well, you know, we're getting a

00:32:38--> 00:32:47

subpoena. Mmm. Right. So okay. If you make do I to become any Ma'am, and the dean,

00:32:48--> 00:32:50

then what do you need to know?

00:32:53--> 00:33:15

Let's take a step back. In the beginning, even though khayim may do it for his friend, I know, Dean that a law make him what Mubarak can and he makes him right, there you go. That he made him Mubarak, that he made him blessed wherever he may be. And then he started talking about what they started talking about Baraka

00:33:16--> 00:34:07

being blessed. What does that entail? Because if you if I'm making do I for you to be that then you need to know what it takes to to be that right. So now, if we make do I for a law to make us what any man then I need to know what what what does it take to become an amen? I need to know what those qualities are the book is set up. And why is that because we don't make do it without bed Lu seven? We don't make do it without putting forth the what the effort to get what it is that we're asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for. All right, let me rephrase that. I think we don't make the law without that you make do I you should make that right. But from the completion of your desires, what is that

00:34:07--> 00:34:14

you put forth the effort that is necessary to get to what it is that you're asking Allah Subhana was Allah for? Okay?

00:34:17--> 00:34:29

mesh. So now we're going to learn what it is, what qualities are necessary to become from the AMA or to become any man

00:34:31--> 00:34:35

men whom I met Daniel Dunleavy emelina.

00:34:38--> 00:34:42

What can what can be I deny you

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

some sort of deception.

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

The translation of the meaning and we made from among the leaders guided by our command when they were patient and when they were searching about size

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

is therefore with suffer with patience and certainty that a person can reach the status of a man. He met in an email notice that he says reached the status even though before he translated it as earned, right. So reached

00:35:18--> 00:35:21

is closer because it's the same exact word in Arabic.

00:35:22--> 00:35:23

And both places

00:35:26--> 00:35:47

offer different interpretation. Right so this he's taking this directly from shapeless and Tamia. himolla type says several places in his books or business already, whether you're keen to Naboo imama, to deal with sobor antiochene. The status of

00:35:48--> 00:36:05

being in the man in the in the religion is reached through what? Through suburb, and what? And your keen pipe. So he's going to talk about both of these in the coming pages and shallow, what is summer, and what is your key now.

00:36:09--> 00:36:58

It is to be patient with respect to this worldly life that is obtained with perseverance from unlawful and sinful worldly pleasures. And some said it is to be patient with the hardships that befall. And some said it is to avoid the unlawful with perseverance. The correct interpretation is that it is to have perseverance, over all of that to perform the obligations that are lost or damaged on us with perseverance to avoid all of that which allow for baby perseverance, and to have perseverance over all that which Allah has decreed and predestined for. Alright, so this definition is actually going to come back at the end of page 27. So just in two pages, but but I'll talk about

00:36:58--> 00:37:13

it briefly here. And then we'll go over it a little more detail because the definition on the next page is the one that I want you to pay attention to inshallah, or in two pages. So here again, he's saying that Subbu is of three types, correct? What's the first

00:37:14--> 00:37:32

sobor as it relates to a laws, commands? That's it, and I don't want you to translate, I just want you to think about sobor. Now suberb from a linguistic standpoint means helps enough hubs and knifes. So, hubs is what does anybody know what helps me?

00:37:35--> 00:37:43

to restrain to constrict? Right? If somebody is is, or for example, if you put

00:37:44--> 00:38:10

if you put a pet inside a cage you take in a pet to the vet, you say that it's my boose, right, because it's in caged? So hepes enough says like you, you restrain you put your knifes in a cage you restrain it. Okay, got me fight. So that's summer. So I want you to understand, that's what suburb means linguistically, so but it has three different types. There's suburb with the laws, commands, with his obedience.

00:38:11--> 00:38:14

There's suburb as it relates to

00:38:16--> 00:38:17


00:38:18--> 00:38:29

and then a sub or an L maaseiah. So there's sobor as it relates to disobedience, which means what do you think that so what do you think suffer as it relates to obedience means

00:38:32--> 00:38:56

to be to have the forbearance right to come to find yourself to a laws commands and not to go outside of that so it's as if you are boxing yourself in to the laws of a loss pantalla clear type a sub n massiah t less What does it mean severe as it relates to allows Masia?

00:38:57--> 00:39:22

Right to reach to reach restrict yourself to refrain from entering into those boundaries where that would be a las pantallas disobedience, right? So you're keeping yourself in the field of obedience. You're restricting yourself from going to that area of disobedience. And then what do you think suburb means as it relates to allows decree

00:39:27--> 00:39:33

time how does it relate to suburb, which is helps in knifes to restrict to refrain from to

00:39:37--> 00:39:47

to refrain from questioning his decree from complaining about a las pantallas decree? Right. So this is part of a sub.

00:39:48--> 00:39:56

This is part of sub as it relates to a las pantallas decree, which will come in a little bit in Charlottetown as we discuss it further. Yes.

00:40:01--> 00:40:09

Please, at your convenience, more of an explanation, if something bad happens, we are supposed to have a certain attitude.

00:40:17--> 00:40:37

alarmist high aloneness high combined patience with certainty in the set is because the source of happiness of a lot of slaves emanates from them, it comes from them. And without them a lot of slaves become detached from it. Okay, please, please pay attention. So the author here is saying what the summer and your teen

00:40:39--> 00:40:45

do what they make up the they constitute the happiness true happiness of a person

00:40:46--> 00:40:56

without suffer. And without your team, therefore, a person cannot find true happiness in this life type.

00:40:57--> 00:41:02

That's important for us to really kind of break this down, I want you to be able to talk about this.

00:41:03--> 00:41:04

So he says here,

00:41:05--> 00:41:24

this is because like, a lot of the Most High combined patience with certainty, and this is because the source of happiness of a lost leaves emanates from them. And without them a loss slaves become detached from it. What is it talking about here?

00:41:26--> 00:41:27

What is it?

00:41:29--> 00:41:30


00:41:31--> 00:41:39

Can happiness is happiness. So without these two, he's saying that a person cannot be happy now what is happy?

00:41:42--> 00:41:45

So is happy something you do or something you feel?

00:41:47--> 00:42:15

Is something you feel okay? That that's in general. Because there's a there's a whole field now they call it the psychology of happiness. And that's it's, but for our purposes, for our purposes, happiness is a is the feeling of contentment. Okay, is that it's a feeling. It's when you feel at ease. Fine.

00:42:16--> 00:42:19

Because if you're, if you're agitated,

00:42:20--> 00:42:53

then are you happy? If there's if you have if something inside of you if there's conflicting emotions inside, are you are you happy? Are you are you settled? There is no real ease there, right? There's no real peace. There's no real tranquility play. So he's saying that in order to achieve that, in order to really feel peace inside to feel that contentment, then you have to have both suffer. And you have to have your team title.

00:42:55--> 00:42:57

read and read and it'll come you'll see.

00:43:00--> 00:43:01

It's coming, it's coming. So,

00:43:03--> 00:43:04

so severe.

00:43:09--> 00:43:46

That is, this is because the heart of is often exposed to the knocks that the sinful of his sinful desires, that contravene going to go against Constantine's country being a loss orders, and to the knocks of the doubts, that contravene the divine revealed text. However, with perseverance, such desire shall wet or cast away and with certainty such doubts as shoe had are pushed down for sinful desires, that is a shock and doubt, as should should, should

00:43:48--> 00:43:59

oppose all the aspects of religion, all the aspects of religion, only those who are pushed away or only those who push away desires with perseverance

00:44:01--> 00:44:03

and by their doubts with certainty

00:44:05--> 00:44:11

own will be saved from a loss punishment. That is a law Yeah, I would say no, no, we will.

00:44:13--> 00:44:22

We'll get we'll get we'll get to what it says we'll get to what it says and Sharma alright. So, so Okay, let's let's take this step by step so that we understand

00:44:24--> 00:44:32

sobor is needed to adhere to a laws commands and to avoid his prohibitions.

00:44:33--> 00:44:35

Otherwise, without sub, nobody's praying.

00:44:37--> 00:44:48

If you don't have suffered, you're not going to pray five times a day. If you don't have supper, you're not going to do cn which is which is also a form of supper.

00:44:49--> 00:45:00

So without suffer, you're not you're not going to fulfill the commands of Allah subhanaw taala. without suffering you're not going to avoid his prohibitions, some of which are very

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

enticing, right? So you have to have sub to

00:45:05--> 00:45:27

avoid those prohibitions and to fulfill a lost power to Alice commands. And you need sub, to have that balance in dealing with the calamities that befall you, in every single human being deals with some level of calamity, because this is the dunya, and it's not gender.

00:45:28--> 00:45:42

And so part of our test in this life is that we are tested with calamities. So you need sulfur, to deal with all of that clear so far, like you need your team.

00:45:44--> 00:45:50

So that you have faith in what Allah subhana wa tada has informed you of does not waver.

00:45:52--> 00:45:57

Because without that your team then you're not really sure.

00:45:58--> 00:46:25

Right? You're not really sure, you're not sure of the command itself. And you're not sure of the reward. That a law really commanded me to do this or prohibit me from that. So if you're not sure, you might not do some of the things that Alok commanded you to do. And you may not avoid some of the things that allows cantata has prohibited you from and if you're not sure about the reward for those things, then you won't have the sobor to do them.

00:46:26--> 00:47:03

Right like even Okay, in Rahim, Allah, Allah says in a different place. He says that in order to reach your destination, you need qulity, submarine wakulla tiaki. You need very strong support, and you need strong yaqeen. He said, it's like a man. Dahal, if you can move, and a person who enters upon a very scary path. You've the ILA hayati me, but that path leads to the epitome of safety and security. He knows when he gets to the end of that path, have they like made it to the finish line, he's good.

00:47:05--> 00:47:31

So you think about going down a very dark path. That's kind of scary. And you know that there's some things where you might have to, you know, you might get some bruises along the way you have to defend yourself, right? It's a scary path. But you know, that when you get to the end, humbly, land that's all over, it's all behind you. You don't have to deal with that again. And it's a great reward waiting for you. And so you're in this dark tunnel, you can see that light at the end, right? Now imagine that light starts flickering.

00:47:32--> 00:48:04

You're like, wait a minute, is it really gonna be light when I get there? Is it gonna go out? That's, that's what that schuck that's a doubt, you're keen is being what? It's at this point. It's being tested. Right? Or, and then what happens as a result of you yaqeen being tested Is that what you start to lose patience, you, you start to lose subs because you'd like man, I'm going through a list isn't really going to lead me to what I want. And so you see they interdependent.

00:48:06--> 00:48:24

Without suburb, without that suburb, you're not going to get to the station of your teen or without your teen you're not going to be you're not going to have summer it's going to affect your summer. And both of them are going to that and that's why they're interdependent as you'll as you'll see when we come on inshallah so so what happens now,

00:48:26--> 00:48:44

a loss command his mo as you can see here, right? The mo means command a law commands us with certain things in the Quran. And he informs us of other things in the Quran. The Quran is made up of those two, a woman as well as bar

00:48:46--> 00:48:54

clear, well, a woman here we talking about commands, that commands also includes the prohibitions, because it's a it's a

00:48:56--> 00:49:19

prohibitions actually commanding you not to do something right. So it's still a form of command. So Allah has commanded us to do some things, those things require from us what some require from us. And Allah azza wa jal informs us of other things, what he informs us of requires from us what your key

00:49:20--> 00:49:29

Now, what is it that contradicts our summer, what is it that now weekends are will power

00:49:31--> 00:49:32

shut away shalhevet

00:49:33--> 00:49:38

shahadat these these sinful desires, so they come in in a

00:49:39--> 00:49:42

mess with that ability to be patient

00:49:43--> 00:49:59

and to persevere and to endure and to restrain right hubsan nerves. So, so shahadat contradicts your sub and what is it that contradicts your your pain, the shoe boo hat, which is often trans

00:50:00--> 00:50:34

As doubts, okay, other people translate it. And this is a better translation, though it's not often use specious arguments, which is close because a doubt is different. A shubha is actually something that is plausible. Looks like this could be, but it's incorrect. It's not right. And that's what specious means. So a specious argument is something that an argument that somebody makes, right, that has some connection to reality, but it's false. And this is what it is.

00:50:35--> 00:50:49

All right. Some people translate shuba is doubtful matters, but it doesn't really give you what it is shuba has affecting your knowledge. It's making you believe something that you shouldn't believe. All right. So, what is it that affects your your team?

00:50:50--> 00:50:55

Or contradicts your your team is shubo hat and what is it that affects your silver

00:50:56--> 00:50:59

shahadat now

00:51:00--> 00:51:07

how is this what why is this something that affects the entirety of the deen

00:51:08--> 00:51:10

because the entirety of the deen is what

00:51:12--> 00:51:18

beneficial knowledge and and righteous acts right beneficial knowledge comes on this side allows hover

00:51:20--> 00:51:26

and righteous action comes on if one not and righteous actions comes on this side which is a laws

00:51:28--> 00:51:30

as commands as prohibitions

00:51:32--> 00:51:42

and therefore should we head and shower wet totally destroy the religion if a person succumbs to them? Clear

00:51:43--> 00:51:44


00:51:47--> 00:52:00

right. And so, here the image even came by him Oh tada after talking about the importance of supporting your team, because how do you ward off how do you ward off Chabot hat

00:52:01--> 00:52:23

with your team, how do you ward off she will act i mean shahadat whatsoever, right and this is why whoever attains sub and your key will become an Imam and the dean and his Eman ship will be in according to his level of sub and your king. So then it

00:52:24--> 00:52:53

goes on to say that Allah subhanho wa Taala informs us that people's deeds are nullified if they succumb to shubho head and shalhevet if they succumb to desires, and these doubts, pray, that they will that Allah Subhana Allah will nullify their deeds and if Eliza gel nullifies the deeds and they are lost,

00:52:54--> 00:53:26

and they will have lost nothing but loss and the hereafter which will ask you know, they will be from the house hearing from those who have lost, all right, so, and they will not attain salvation allies. Oh, Joe says Kadena makaveli comm can watch them in kung fu tongue well thought out and well known world leader for STEM Tao will be Halevy him Kim asked for STEM Tara will be holla at him for STEM tatung behala DICOM camera stamped and Latina makaveli comm behala tm moho tune Kela de kado. Now

00:53:27--> 00:53:29

you can read it from a patient.

00:53:30--> 00:54:06

Oh, you are like those who came before you who are more powerful than you and more abundant and wealth and children. They enjoyed their share of worldly pleasures. And you have been enjoying your share just as those who came before you enjoyed their share. And you have been indulging in idle talk just as they did Such are the ones whose deeds will come to nothing in this world and in the hereafter set are the ones who are Such are the ones whose deeds will come to nothing in this world.

00:54:07--> 00:54:20

Who are those who will whose deeds will come to nothing in this world, those who would have enjoyed their share of this dunya right, but not in a manner that's pleasing to a loss.

00:54:22--> 00:54:59

And those who indulge here it says an idle talk. Right so so both of those, as we'll see are the direct correspondence to shubho hack and shahadat the shadow wax are enjoying the pleasures of this dunya unlawfully and the shubo hat is just engaged in what as he says here, the translation says idle talk we're going to read what the man has said it for him Oh lo tada says about this in Charlottetown. But before we get there, let's just look at what the consequences of a bracing shower wet and wet are. The first is that anytime you have

00:55:00--> 00:55:10

The the a person embraces a shuba or a shower, there's going to be internal conflict. What does that mean that there's internal conflict

00:55:12--> 00:55:29

you're fighting within yourself, right? Because this is something that's wrong, and you're still doing it. So there's a, there's a way there's a fight, especially if a person has a fifth letter that is intact, right? If they fitted as intact, then it then is going to be

00:55:30--> 00:55:47

that internal struggle. But at the end of the day, the only thing that really brings tranquility to the hardest, what the remembers of a loss of habitat. And so this person is turning away from that remembers either through following sinful desires, or through believing something that they should not believe.

00:55:48--> 00:56:03

The second thing is that it nullifies good deeds, and this is what it says in this particular is that you can have your clients mlo those people's good deeds will be nullified. Okay. And it puts their salvation in jeopardy.

00:56:04--> 00:56:06

in the Hereafter, pipe.

00:56:07--> 00:56:17

acidity says your deeds are like theirs read from their Lord has told us of your deeds or like there's nothing Allah has told us that that's related to the last sentence your deeds are like they're

00:56:19--> 00:56:46

enjoying, you are enjoying your share of worldly pleasures, using it to fulfill your desires and turning away from the purpose for which it was given. We can't we can't enjoy worldly pleasures, that's not the problem, if but they have to be used in a manner that is pleasing to a loss of human talent, they have to be used in a manner that is lawful and most of them most of your worldly pleasures should be used to help you get to the hereafter.

00:56:47--> 00:57:23

You are using it for simple purposes. And your aspirations do not go beyond that which you were getting of worldly pleasures, as was the case with those who came before you. Alright, so that's what it means this portion of the ayat where it says they enjoy their portion of worldly enjoyment, and you have enjoyed your proportion as those before you enjoyed their portion. That's what it means I this is the meaning here, it doesn't just mean that you enjoyed it. Like there's something wrong with enjoying the things that are lost fantana has given us It means that you used it for sinful purposes, not

00:57:24--> 00:57:48

Yes, you have been indulging in idle talk, just as they did that is you have been indulging in falsehood and arguing on the basis of falsehood, so as to ward off the truth, this is what they did. And it was all they knew, namely, enjoying their share of worldly pleasures, and indulging in forces and their false speech was because of their false beliefs. Okay, not

00:57:50--> 00:58:34

thus, guys, they deserve the punishment and doom. And then as they came before them, who did the same as they did, after the believers, even though they may enjoy their share of worldly pleasures, and whenever they are granted us granted in this world, they do so in a way that helps them to obey Allah Subhana Allah. And that is, that's the beauty of a true believer. Right? The Prophet it is Salatu was Salam had companions who were wealthy. And they use that wealth to draw closer to a loss of habitat. And they did good for their families. It wasn't that they, it wasn't that they put all of their money other than Abacus at the end. But it wasn't that they gave all of their money fees to

00:58:34--> 00:59:19

retail and so forth. But they used a good portion of the wealth, to support the D. Right, and to do those things to take care of the orphans to take care of the poor to feed the needy, they use their wealth in a way that was going to be pleasing to a loss of Hannah who was not with regard to the knowledge they have is knowledge that they learned from the messengers. This is the type of knowledge that helps them to attain certain things in all that they try to achieve a certain faith up. Okay? So the knowledge that comes from the messengers, right, and specifically that which comes from the prophet Isaiah Salatu, was sent in by way of the crisis and this is what promotes your key.

00:59:20--> 00:59:28

This is what promotes true certainty in the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and those tenets of faith that we have to believe in,

00:59:29--> 00:59:33

argue on the basis of truth. In order to

00:59:34--> 00:59:59

play we have four minutes left and then shallow to add. I'm going to finish reading this on page 26. Go back to page 26. It says the part that says enjoyed their portion of worldly enjoyment refers to their enjoyment of their share of sinful desires, while the part engaged in vanities like that in which they engage refers to engaging in false and unlawful matters.

01:00:00--> 01:00:35

guarding the religion of Allah, and he referring to vain and false topics of the people have doubts. And this is again, when it says the people have doubts, even though it we're talking about what word in Arabic shoe boo hands, a shoe head, because a lot of times again, when we think about doubts, you have to think about an argument that is made. That is one. It's it's plausible, it's possible. It's just not the truth. Okay? And that's what it's all about at the end of the day, he could have he thought, the dunya will ask you,

01:00:36--> 01:00:53

what will ecoman ha see Ron, it is those whose deeds have become worthless in this world, they nullify in this world anything here after that it is they who are the losers, what will an eco household and those who are the losers in the hereafter are those who do not go to gender?

01:00:55--> 01:01:04

Right, because this is the ultimate reward a lot mentioned that the result of such a state, namely becoming losers and the adiz becoming worthless

01:01:05--> 01:01:35

depends on their following of desires I don't like not depends on but it's, it's the result of so instead of depends on it, we want to cross out and say is the result of It's the result of them following their desires, which is enjoying their portion of worldly pleasures, and on following shubo hat, which is engaging and false in vain topics play him so therefore, and we're going to talk about this a shala.

01:01:36--> 01:01:38

So hoping to get done this part the day

01:01:39--> 01:02:31

2728 20 in parts of 29 we're not going to get there due to the time. But there are four essentials for the men as we're going to see here. Okay. And that part we will read just as a prelude to to what's coming in Charlotte next week. So in the beginning of page 27, it says chapter two guiding people and calling them to Allah and His Messenger Everybody see that? He says aside from the two previously mentioned requirements, that is what cyber and your team, the AI brings to attention to other principles, the first of which is calling people to Allah and guiding them. Yeah, Duna Yeah, do they guide me they guide other people. And the second one is guiding people to Allah according to

01:02:31--> 01:03:12
