now have the Rila mother wanna stay in Ohio on istockphoto? When I was learning Misha fusino Sasha Marina de la vida de la la, Mama you Bluefin aha de la, la la la la la y ou la sharika wash Helena Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa de he was talking to Senator Stephen cathinone, Naomi Dean. And my bad we have made it to page 27 in this book called heartfelt advice to a friend by Mmm, even Okay, email Joe Xia Rahim, Allah Tada. And last week
we covered or we started the four essentials for achieving emammal in the dean, four essentials for achieving imama. And the dean.
Is it okay to ask to be an amen?
I'm not asking.
asking these guys.
Play, play play.
Okay, so, but isn't there? Isn't there evidence that indicates I'm sorry, I must. Okay, God.
Isn't there? Isn't there evidence that indicates that we shouldn't ask for positions of leadership?
time so what's the difference?
Right. So when we're talking about being any man in the deen, right, not being any ma'am of other people necessarily, or being in a leadership position over other people, we're talking about becoming any man in the dean. Now, that's important, because once you become an Imam and a dean, or to become an Imam, and a dean, there's certain characteristics that you have to have and those characteristics are praiseworthy characteristics. We mentioned two of them last week.
And we didn't go into a whole lot of detail, but we did mention two of them. And Simon's gonna do a recap, what were those two that we covered last week
sobor and, and your key right server, and your team. And we're gonna, since we're going to go back over them today in shallow data won't take a lot of time discussing them. But the point is that these two qualities are what they call multi lesson. And each one needs the other. Each one of them needs the other. So there's a level of we can call it inter dependency. So you need sub, okay, and how do we translate sub
Okay, or without forgive translating? What the suffer mean?
What does it mean?
Patience and knowing what is correct and staining from what is wrong, okay.
Okay, you went, you went along with the capacity to hold yourself back, right? Self restraint, right? restraint, the capacity to hold to control yourself, right, that is subject. And in order to worship a loss of habitat, then you need as you say, you need that ability to control yourself enough to do it, to worship Allah and to control yourself enough to refrain from disobeying Allah subhanaw taala. And to control yourself at times of calamity, which was the third part, which wasn't mentioned in the definition as you gate, right, which is, when something bad happens that you restrain that you that you show some level of self restraint so that you don't just go crazy, okay?
And tear your grip your clothes and beat your face, and, you know, so that's a lot I have here. So suffer is one part. But in order to have that sub, there has to be some level of what some level of your team, right, some level of knowledge, and the higher most level of that knowledge is, is your key. And you need that because without that firm belief that there is a reward for you worshipping Allah Subhana Allah, there's a reward for you abstaining from
disobedience to him that there's a reward for you enduring patiently those calamities that you do that you're not going to do it.
Because you just don't you don't really believe that, right? So there is no level of certainty in it. And each one needs the other. Right. So which we'll talk about a little bit more in shallows as we go on. So those are the two that we covered last week. today. The author is going to bring
them back a little bit differently with a different approach. And he's going to mention the third and fourth qualities that are necessary in order to be and he Ma'am, in the dean, and he is basing this entire discussion around the idea, and sort of a sajida, which, which we'll cover. And so today, we're going to continue with what the four essentials for achieving impairment in the dean, part two. The next week, we'll talk about six keys for happiness within a title. So you see how we got here, though, right? I just saw that we that we follow? How is the book going? He starts off Mmm, we'll call him starts off by making dua for his companion, I that Dean to be Mubarak, wherever
he may be, right that he is somebody who is blessed. And then he talks about what it takes to be blessed. And part of that is guidance. And from those important qualities or from those important categories under guidance, the types of guidance that we need, is to guide others because when guiding others than what allows parents out of reciprocates that reward. So you also are increased in guidance.
And that is how we got to the point of talking about becoming an Imam and the dean because part of being an amendment of Dean is that you guide others and that's what we're going to be covering. today. We live in China. So
we need to do what Dr. Mossad have to get the juices, let's get the juices flowing. Okay, this will ask them those questions, please. Oh, yeah, you gotta get your mic on.
Okay, what are the four essential matters for attaining a man in the religion? Right? So by the end of today's lesson, I want you to be able to answer that comfortably. memorize it. Be very confident in that man. Does every Muslim have to believe that there is a bridge over Hellfire that must be crossed before entering gender? Pay attention, pay attention? Does every Muslim have to believe that? Yeah. Why was faith in laws decree other not explicitly mentioned among the fundamentals of demand?
What qualities are possessed by those who are saved from ruin in this life, and the next again, and this is why this book is so important, because it will claim is extracting from the Koran, those qualities that are necessary for us to be happy in this life. And we talked about happiness from before we talked about that state, that state of being content, what we need to be people who enjoy this life to some extent and this life is not gender. So there is only with you know, a certain level of enjoyment, and in order to be saved in the next life saved from ruin, saved from destruction and to be from the people of gender. Now, what did Eman
rahimullah, say about students?
Explain his statement. Okay. So turn to page 27.
We're going to begin we did read that first paragraph. I'm going to read it again quickly and then I'll let you take over that for my talk. So the
claim Rahim Allah Allah says, aside from the two previously mentioned requirements,
that is suffer and yaqeen which he's translating here is patience and certainty. The idea what which eye is he talking about?
The Iris mentioned below and sort of to such them. Well, john, I mean home imitating you're doing a BM Nina lemon Savile? What can we add Tina? up, no keynote. So he says, The AI brings to attention to other principles, the first of which is calling people to a law and guiding them. And the second one is guiding people to a law according to what he ordained in order through His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not according to their intellect. In other words, that you would you guide people you call people you invite people to the way of Allah subhanho data.
But how the way that the Prophet it is selected was Salim did so not according to your intellect, to your opinion, or people's policies and preferences and blind, blind following of their forefathers without having evidence from Allah.
And so it's not just that you call to Allah, but that you do so the way that he instructed his messenger Allah is allowed to sit in the same way we talked about before when we were studying the tableau media. It's not just about you worshiping Allah. It's about you worshiping him how
The way that he told you to worship Him, not the way that you want to do it.
And that is like that, across the board, you don't just go you get hired for a job and you do it the way you want to do it. It doesn't work like that if you have an employer
and he or she tells you how to do a job and that's the way you do the job if you want to get rewarded.
Right, and that and that's with anything, so it's not it's not just about a person claiming to worship Allah but worshiping Allah pants out of the way that what we did, he said, Not according to how you think it should be done. And so the same thing is with dow it's not just about how you think it should be done, but the way that a lot of structured His messenger RNA Salatu was in it. This is because the last fantana has a giant amino limiting I don't wanna be empty now. llama suburu What can we attina up noon? And we may from among them leaders? Uh huh. That's what what is what is leaders? ima right, the plural of Eman we made from amongst them he memes guiding
one by our command to win when they were lemma suburu when they exercised Subbu will can will be attina. You know, and they were certain they had your teen and our signs. You see the four there? Right? So if you if you look at the if you look at the Iet they are all their sub, and your team. And our and compliance server, as we talked about before has three types and it's going to come again now europeen is unwavering faith and those tenets of Islam Tao that is calling to a loss of hands and again we're going to talk about these in more detail and compliance that is following the prophetic methodology in that call to Allah subhanahu wa tada type to recap, fellowship.
It's the right there at the bottom of page 27. It says to recap.
The AI includes four principles, one patience,
which means to withhold oneself from that which a law has made unlawful to dedicate oneself in fulfilling that which a law has made obligatory and organic. And to avert oneself from complaining or being angry at laws decrees, right. So if we, if we look at the types of sub
Go ahead, read them from the board. Rule number one, be steadfast in obedience. Right so so the first type is confining the soul to the commandments of Allah. And again, if we keep if we look back, it was sobor. And that, how did you say
that the capacity to hold oneself back, right so you're confining yourself holding yourself back confining yourself to the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is the highest level of of sub This is the best type of sub. Now number two, number two, patiently, patiently avoiding this obedience, right so restraining the soul from the prohibitions of Allah subhana wa Tada. Again, we have that element of restraint and confinement, right. Number three, patiently enduring, right so you prevent yourself from complaining
to others about Allah subhana wa attalus decree, but you can complain to Allah and that's perfectly fine. As the Prophet yaku said, in the mat, Ash poo bethey, we're Hosni Illa. Allah, I only complain about my sadness and my struggles to Allah parents.
So we can we can talk to Allah, we can talk to Allah Subhana Allah and complain about the difficulties that we face and ask him to alleviate it. But complainant to his creation rules no is of no benefit. Now. That being said, it is definitely permissible for you to talk to other people about some of your difficulties, but not in a in a manner of complaining in a manner of looking for looking for solutions, right? The same way that you would go to a doctor, you know, if you go to the doctor, and the doctor says, Well, how you feeling? He said hamdulillah
doctor says, you know, complaints? No, no, I believe in the law. I'm not going to complain. Well, how's the doctor supposed to know that? You know, something's hurting. Right? So you're not doing that to complain. You're doing that to, to try to help find a solution. And if you're out of working, you know somebody that can employ your
point you in the right direction, then these are things that you know, it's fine to talk about, but not in a manner that you are complaining you know best what your intentions are no
play at the end Michelle I
like father, number two, certainty
which means to have a profound established a man that is free of questions, hesitation and doubts in five tenets that Allah stated in the ayah in this ayah Allah Subhana Allah and sorta tillbaka you'll notice that this the source I shall bear until two Aloo kibble and mesh that we will be working on BARROWMAN M and I rely on yummy FM, well, Mullah, etc. Well, kita, we want to begin to the end of the eye, but those are the five
tenets of mn are mentioned a lot. fantana also talks about the tenants of faith at the very beginning of soda tillbaka and then at the very end, so it's in the beginning, the middle and the end, sort of tillbaka that emphasis on belief. And these five righteousness is not
to be lazy. This is not to turn your faces toward the east or the west. But true righteousness is in one believes that a lot. The last day, the angels, the book and the prophets. Now, here was one key tab. I don't know if I think it's probably better to translate it as the books even though it's singular in Arabic. There's many times when the singular is used in Arabic to mean the plural and no doubt here is not just talking about belief in one book is talking about belief in the books are lost data has sent down
then, so So here, European unobtanium says is to have unshakable Amen, right. It's a lie man, Al Jazeera.
Now we will imagine jasm aesthetics, right. So this unshakable established. Amen. That is free of questions. Now here. what's meant by being free of questions? I would I would say that this may not be the most accurate translation because he the claim actually says that led led by Buffy
and what is
that he can keep tabs loud while you Buffy?
by ear is a little broader than then. Okay, so let's just look at these two terms in Arabic because they come up a lot one is volume and the other one is scheck pipe. What is scheck? Chuck is down. So what's the right
La, la, la, la, la, la,
la, la, you Buffy No.
free is a phrase better be applied to it is that which cannot be proven otherwise? Okay.
So wave is actually uneasiness. Right. So that something that makes you uneasy. makes you mad. You don't feel right on it. Something doesn't feel right about it. So yeah, we normally say it's caused me to doubt right. But it's a little different. Right? It's a little different than than doubt. shuk. shuk is down.
Yeah. Okay. You can say like a deep uncertainty. So something is that it makes you feel uncomfortable that he can keytab loudly, Buffy. Allah Subhana. Allah said about his book, right? It's nothing in this book that makes you uncomfortable.
I don't owe the southern man. Yeah, well, that's a little different, too, because that it could be for other reasons. So So here he's saying that the Eman Al Jazeera, when we talk about what is your pain, it is that level of faith.
Whereby after you have it, you will feel uncertain about any of the tenants of faith. Now, it doesn't mean you won't have questions and that's what and that's what I'm saying here. I'm not sure if this is if this is the proper way to convey this message. Right. You might have questions about belief in Allah belief in the angels Believe it or not the type of questions that make you doubt about
Their existence or what you're supposed to believe, but because you want to learn more, so I'm just saying I don't want you to think that though, that the questioning here means that you can't ask questions, right? But it should be without Torah dude and without scheck, which he says here is hesitation and doubt so that's fine. And those five tenets and then the last handout it says after the command to believe in them he says why me yuck for belay? Well my lad he could see he will coach will be he will also be he will Yeoman acid for Karbala learning by the
whoever disbelieves and rejects a lost hands out of his angels, his books, his messengers, in the last day has surely gone far a strike.
is also stated in the iron.
Ziva LA, he will, he will move me Who am an avid woman, he could see he was put up he was
the messenger has believed in that which was revealed to him from his Lord. And so have two believers. All of them have believed in the law and his angels and his books and his messengers. Were in believing in the kind of days part of believing in the divine books and messengers Okay, so stop there. So he says, believing in the final day is part of belief in the divine books and messages How?
Yeah, because all all of the revelation I lost friends Allah has sent and all of his teacher all of the messengers have taught to believe in the last day but this is actually if you take it out to his conclusion it talks about belief in the last time was the conclusion of the I says cool on em and overlay overlay you get to coup de oro su D
keep going when ofori Covina I had him originally we don't distinguish between any one of his messengers meaning that what that they were all messengers we don't we don't affirm messenger ship for some and deny it for the others. Like Like, like who
like like all of the people who have the book before the Muslims right because the the Jewish people they denied the the messenger ship of Saudi Salatu was today and the follow and the Christians denied the messenger ship of Mohammed bin Abdullah salado Salah fight kulu nam la
Lando Federico Vina I had him and also he will call the word semana while Karna they say we hear and we obey, we hear what
we hear the message that it has come from the messenger RNA Salatu sent and we obey that who Frana which is what
your your forgiveness, Oh Allah, your forgiveness of Allah. But why?
Why why why in this place asking for forgiveness?
Because we need it on a day to
day what's its relationship to semana Alpina we'll call Luciana Latina who flajnik because they say all three will call who Sam and apply now for Annika. Veronica Bennett.
Ah, yeah, because you hear and you obey, but there's going to be some deficiency in your obedience.
For what So what? Who Franek so forgive us because we we know there's going to be some shortcomings who phonic or Bennett? What la kalama. See, and that's the belief in the hereafter into you as our return. Right? So you as our return so as a belief in the final day, as mentioned and that particular I, I'm gonna hop on.
And now, the prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam said men that his faith is the belief in the law, His angels, his books, his messengers, and the last day yeah and and and the Hadith. of of it Ebon Omar while the Allahu taala animal who narrates the hadith of gibreel and Sahih Muslim is it after the last day it says not until May not be like when jabril as far as I saw him What is he man? Assam sir until I mean I would lie on my legs he will he will he will carry on Heidi he was sorry he used to believe in the other the good and the evil of it even though that's not mentioned in this narration rebuttal came doesn't mention it. So he says what therefore there
is not a believer.
Okay, stop there. So, so question Why isn't a cutter mentioned here?
Or is it mentioned?
Or is it implied?
It is implied how
it's in a revelation. Okay.
But directly, what is Al Qaeda?
okay. All right, let's take when we we've studied cutter a couple times.
And we mentioned that
the belief in the last Pantheon is decree is the belief in
four different components if you will, that make up that belief and elkader
is to believe that way.
I promise you
that nothing happens without the will of Allah Subhana Allah Thank you.
Okay. So, so right there, so that Allah Subhana Allah what he knows,
has happened, is happening will happen. And and what would have happened had other things happen. Now, so that is a loss of habitat is what complete knowledge of everything type, that's the first. That's the first component and that belief in the tree. And then what, that he wrote it down and keeps having now and
that He willed for it to happen and that he created it. And everything that has happened, the last tranche, Allah has willed for it to happen and has created it and he knew it was going to happen. And he wrote that down. So a limo will keytab into one machine or two will Hulk, okay, those are the four stages, if you will, those four components like
therefore, if we take it back to the very beginning, first thing that we said is what I'll cover goes back to a laws way.
knowledge to laws now. So it is part of the belief in Allah. And he believed in Allah Subhana Allah His decree is part of your belief in Allah subhana wa Tada.
All right. Now, what we're going to talk about is, so here, as you can see,
it says, for your team, we talk about Subbu. And we talk about your team, we are talking about certainty in these five soon, and what are the five or the five fundamentals of faith, belief in Allah? angels, the books, the messages in the last day, as mentioned here, and don't claim is going to mention.
Okay, keep going as for certainty,
as for certainty,
as for certainty, is the state we believe in all these five minutes is so profound, to the point that the heart can realize the five tenets and observe them, just like our eyes can see the reflection of the sun and the moon? Yeah, I'm, again, I'm not sure where the translator got that. Maybe he's, he has a different copy than I have. But no, no, seriously, I'm not trying to be funny. It just, it doesn't say anything about the reflection of the Sun and Moon, it just says the sun and a moon,
which makes a lot of sense. So basically, the heart experiences, these matters of faith, the way that the eye sees the sun and the moon.
Is there any doubt if you see the sun and you shouldn't look at the sun? I'm not encouraging that disclaimer. If you see the sun Do you need like, Is there any doubt?
Now, if you look up at the moon and full moon and you see the moon and even if it's not full, is there any doubt? No, that is the way that the heart should experience right? These tenants have faith, belief in the lost parents out as angels, the books, the messengers, and the last day. This is why this is why some of the predecessors said certainty
is from faith. Right? And actually, again, what it says in Arabic. Is that and Yaki no lie man, Emmanuel kulu. Who so I don't know how it's translated certainty is from faith. Actually, what was said is that eliakim is the entirety
of email. Now what that means is is is subject to some interpretation. So we're talking about that for a second. This is actually the statement of Abdullah Massoud radi Allahu taala. And who and it is mentioned in a Jammie Asahi little little Buhari, y mo la Jana, but he didn't mention it as a Hadeeth. He mentioned it in the in the chapter heading okay.
So this is the statement of a been Miss ruled, he said a suburu Miss email. He says sub is half of Amen. Well Yaki no lie man who kulu he said in your teen is the entirety of, of faith
and even hedger. For him Allah to Allah for Tilbury explaining this, explaining this effort. He says that what if Ms. ood are the alone time and who is saying here is that your team is the basis it is the foundation of every Sherpa of Amen, every because we know that a man has different branches.
And if you come into class on Friday nights, and I don't really want to talk about it now. But if you come to class on Friday nights, and you study the book, The Tree of faith by the man of God, amen. Vanessa acidity, Rahim, Allah shakable, Mohammed is teaching you here on Friday nights, right after the mother, then you're going to go through the definition of a man and the branches of the man and so forth, which is phenomenal. The The point here is that, that certainty, that level of your team
is the foundation of all of the aspects of Amen.
Now, that being said, we know that a man is also or that you're keen, sorry, his levels, so not even all certainty is not the same. So I'll give you an example.
How many of you are certain that there's a place called Mecca
I saw some hands didn't go up. So
everybody certain that there is a place called Mecca. Now, when you actually are let's, let's take a step further, all our all of us certain that there's a Canada and Mexico, Okay, good, tight, so so everybody, sir. There's another level of certainty when you actually get to a messy little harangue, and you see the cabin, right? That's another level. And then when you get up to the cabin, you make to walk around the Kaaba, you touch the black stone, then that's another level. And so there's those three are called Emily Hakim. Right? Why in the UK, he will have an Yaki right. And so there is the, the
certainty of knowledge, there's the certainty of seeing and then there's the certainty of experiencing.
So all of us believe in gender. That's a lie. So generally, within an agenda, we ask Allah Subhana, Allah to put us places into gender.
So we all believe that there's gender, then when a servant in the hereafter sees gender is close to him, that's another level of certainty, and then entering it is a final level of certainty. So there's Emily Hakim, and I in eliakim, and happily again, so the certainty of knowledge, the certainty of seeing and the certainty of actually experiencing, right and I mean, it's sort of like
when kids play with fire, you say, Oh, you don't believe
they do they know it's hot, they've seen it burn something, but they just had to touch it for themselves right. So, those are different levels of of your key, all right, like we were talking about before we move on to the third point which is guiding people and calling them to Allah and His Messenger Allah is allowed to sit in
these these five belief in Allah, the angels, the books, the messenger, the last day in the sixth, which is belief in elkader. All of them have what we call obligatory minimums
right. So, what is the what is the base? What is the common denominator? What is the lowest level of faith that you have to have in each one of these in order to be considered a a believer?
there are certain things and before we get into the concept of Amen.
There are certain things that are obligations in your prayer, right?
But even those objects
Asians are of different levels. So some of them the scholars of Islam call what or can, they are a rookin in your, your pray their pillars of your prayer, essential matters, meaning that if you left them off, you have to do what? You have to bring it back, you have to pray it again or you have to go back to that please, you can't just skip it and make such a to excel.
Right? So if a person for example, a person, for example, forgot one of their such this, they may suddenly and then they stood up and they forgot one did they have to go back and complete that such then start the prayer over from there. Because you can't just leave but if a person for example, forgot the first childhood, right, then they can make that up with such as to sell at the end the per the to such this for forgetfulness. So that's the importance of knowing and that the scholars of the past didn't break down the slot like that they didn't say this is a rookin This is a whadjuk This is a no the way that you know that they considered it to be an essential matter of the prayers.
If they asked about they say no, he either you got to do that again, then you know that that's considered to be a what we would now call a rookin. So similarly, if you look through the books of aqidah,
you come and you start to see no, this is a this is a fundamental aspect of your belief. For example, in the last day, you have to believe that or else this person is not considered to be a believer, this person is considered to be outside of the fold of Islam. All right, so we're going to look at that very quickly. This is
reason why this is shake solid or semi, not suhaimi Shaykh saalih al Husseini from Riyadh, from his keyboard. Oh, there we go loads it is from the on a committee of major scholars in Saudi Arabia. And he's one of the prominent scholars that I've set with the deal with this concept of bare minimums right the obligatory minimums of he meant the other shake saw a shift
heavy the load to it, but I couldn't find anything that
that was succinct. So this is four minutes. We'll let it play and I'll translate it as it goes, inshallah I will I'm not accountable for your seat that will not do that. Okay. Holy sallallahu. And he was a limit and to Amina Villa he omega t Alhaji for a while to her a man oh bill
will call the roll word you will mode zero meaning a man he will
will eema no boo Jo de
la Ben. Marabou then law who is now on personnel see federal rouda holy man oh bill god he Robin Marabou then the whole estimate on personnel or seafair kulula. So, what he said was that the first that the first
tenet of faith is belief in Allah
and this is called an Arabic elkader l wedge Yp l mu z, Qatar l worship and mozzie which means that it is the obligatory minimum level of faith that you have to have obligatory minimum. Okay, which you can see here. Well, okay, which was there. Okay, obligatory minimums. So what what is that first obligatory minimum? It's, it's the belief in a law, belief in his existence.
As Lord. He said, what Ben?
What he led him. That is the he is both the Lord. And when we say rub, for those of you taking Shanghainese class, what does that cover?
Okay, Master, what is it? What is it covered up?
What major areas? creation Hmm.
And provision? Right, which I think that's probably what you meant when you said the caretaker right. So both creation, provisions and management. And that is that Allah Subhana Allah is the Creator of everything in existence, its provider, and the manager of the affairs, the heavens and earth. All right. So belief in Allah Subhana Allah as the creator as the one who deserves to be worshipped, and the one who has the most beautiful names and lofty attributes, alright, so that's as it relates to your belief in Allah Subhana Allah that is the bare minimum
with any hair and a man will be lamella aka,
we'll call the roll wajib and Mooji Amina a man a dilemma.
Who will he man will be en Nahum halcomb inhalten la Hey. So that's the first thing that the obligatory minimum is that you have to believe that the angels are a creation from the creation of Allah subhana wa Taala that he created them not that there is some type of mythical beings, right you have to believe that they exist This is bare minimum.
Well, no, when I mean who may zero bill ye LLM ba ba amarilla. holy man. Oh, Vienna, Holloman halka law, he will mean whom may zero below halal MBA, be Emory law. And then from amongst them, they are those who bring down the revelation to the prophets from Allah to you. So we that's the bit when we think about angels, what are their responsibilities, we know that there are angels that move the clouds that their angels they do
so many other things that they're angels, they write down your deeds to the end of it. But that part is not wag to believe in. Unless you know, all right. So what are these bare minimums talking about? bare minimums mean what these are things that every Muslim has to know? Learn it, unlearn it, whatever you have to know that then as the information comes to you,
as the information comes to you, you learn more and you learn more from the Quran from the Sunnah of the prophet is not to say that you have to believe in those things that come from Milan is messenger.
But these are the bare minimums, meaning that somebody who doesn't know these other things because they didn't study or whatever the situation may be, they can be excused for that. But this part right here, there's no excuse. Why is this also important? Because those who are dealing with new Muslims, or Muslims who are coming back to the deen and they just, you know, went somewhere else. This has to be your focus. They have to know what they have to believe. And what they do is going to be based off of what they believe.
What's added to her as a man who will kowtow?
We'll call the roll word you will move Zhu Mina Imani will Koto, who will
be an Allah and Allah Allah Masha Ameen MBA khudobin hiya kalama holy man, be an a la ha and Zara Masha Misha Ameen MBA e khudobin. Here.
So the third point is belief in or having faith in Allah Subhana Allah His books, and the bare minimum, the obligatory minimum is to believe that Allah subhana wa tada has sent down books to whom he chose from his prophets, and that those books are his speech, and that those books are his speech Mo.
The Kumu Bain and Nancy, Tina Stella houfy. Yeah, como, Bain and Nancy, female, Stella foofy. And that the purpose of these books is to rule between the people and those things which they have different. In other words, the revelation from a loss of Hannah, what's added, the purpose of it is guidance. And if we look, there was a time when the Muslims
when the Muslims, I'm not talking about here in America, I'm saying there was a time historically, when the Muslims controlled a large portion of the world. And when people look up to the Muslims, not the other way, or the other way around, where even the Muslims and many of our Muslim countries look up to the west, and specifically, the United States of America, that they want to emulate what's happening here, and Subhanallah when the Muslims
were in control,
and when the Muslims control the narrative, it was when they had a strong connection to Revelation.
And it makes a lot of sense, because this revelation was sent down for guidance. And if we follow that guidance, we will be able to create that narrative and if we don't, we're gonna be following everything else. In his people's philosophies along with that, even if they say it's backed up by this or science and empirical evidence and all that stuff, if it goes against the revelation of
Philosophy metallic it is it is not going to lead you to anything that is positive
and so on. And that all of those books have been abrogated by the Quran Jimmy and managed Suharto mill or on
or have you had an event okay. So, the fourth is cultural belief and the messengers are given a mode zero meaning a man
or a man will be an Allaha although Stella,
Ella and Nancy also I mean,
holy man ob and Allah Allah, Allah in a Nancy also that mean home, Dr. Morrow home be back in there. Yeah mo home.
So that that he sent these messengers to people from the people write that these were not because the angels are also messengers, but he sent to people, people other people, right to command them with the worship of Allah subhana wa, den at home. The last of them Allahu alayhi
salatu was sahami so have faith in a man or woman belief in the last word. And the obligatory minimum
of this belief in the last day he back up yo minalima ye Oh PM, it is to believe in the back. So this this part is important is to believe that there is a resurrection. You have to believe that and then you'll see what he says on a great day. It's called your metal piano.
On a man, it is baggy, he Elmi Alimi, for your movie. limo Jackie, the Philippine limo jackal, followed by a
femen axe, Anna Bella.
Tao Hua Jin. And the purpose is to do what we just said, and Hulk is that everybody is rewarded. And that term reward as we've talked about before, doesn't just mean something good.
Even in English, the term reward doesn't just mean something good. If somebody does something bad, they'll be rewarded with bad. So the point is to to hold people or to hold the creation to account. So whoever does good his reward is Jenna. Jenna, Jenna young La Jolla community, he sent me a lot fans out and make us and you from amongst its people, and even people of gender. I mean, I'm an accidental questionnaire or Donahue agenda, woman as the fella whom I mean, woman, and whoever does evil them, for him will be that which he has done, he will be rewarded accordingly.
By that, oh, man, I mean,
and his, his reward will be the firemen, lots of hands on to protect you and us from it.
And then this is the last now. And the man who made the call that he hired, he was headed he has to believe in a laws decree the good of it and the evil of it.
do you mean Amen? Amen.
Amen will be an a la carte de la escuela Shane as Allah and so the bare minimum is to believe that Allah subhana wa tada has decreed everything in existence from the beginning of time as Alan and eternally
or Lehman, we are no longer de la Kula Shane, as
he said back then,
well, n Mo, di akun che vi mushy Edie
and that nothing will come into existence without his will and without him creating no name for no shade on a levy machine. He will Hello, okay.
who he is.
Okay, so that's, that's where it stopped.
And so the bare minimum of belief from Qatar is one that Allah Subhana Allah decreed everything that has happened, okay. And that will happen to that nothing happens without his will. And his, his creating it. Okay.
So the point is to,
we have to have your pain in those things, we have to have certainty in those bare minimums. Then, as more information comes, your E man grows because you're a man grows through two things, beneficial knowledge and righteous actions. So the more you get of that beneficial knowledge, the more you get
Demand grows. And the and that is one thing about rd when it comes to these theological points, and those things that relate to our creed, we have details that no other Dean has. And we have we have preserved revelation. Like we don't have to do a lot of guesswork with a lot of other, you know, play, you know, books that have been tampered with. They have to do a lot of putting the pieces together by themselves. Without the revelation from Allah pants, Adam, when it comes to matters of the unseen putting those pieces together doesn't do a lot of help. Doesn't have bring a lot of benefit. Play. Well.
further guiding people guiding people that page 29
at the bottom,
guiding people and cloning into a messenger so this is the third The first was sub second is europeen.
The third is guiding people. And this is all under what are the qualities that you need for Mmm, and the religion
and from the doula of this of the battle ramen is that they say what, what? Lil mattina?
Make us any ma'am. For the tepee? Oh, yeah. What is that? What do you ask him for? When you say that? You're asking for Subbu? You're asking for your team. You're asking that a lot of hands out to make you feel amongst those who guide people and call them to a lot now. And hustling and bustling,
used to comment after resetting the iron woman.
What I mean, I saw he hung up on
me, and who is better in speech? The one who invites to a law and does righteousness and says Indeed, I am up to Muslims. This is the one I love. This is this is the statement about hassanal bacilli here. He says this is the one whom Allah loves, right. This is the one he
he submitted to Him, obey Him, then righteous deeds, and called people to him. Yeah, that's that part where it says did righteous deeds are done righteous deeds that's not in Arabic, so you can actually cross that out.
And so it actually matches up his statement matches perfectly with the eye and the eye last fantatic says What woman accidentally called him and died Allah. Well, I mean, I saw the home or call it in an email, I'm assuming who is better in speech? The one who invites to law does righteous deeds and said Indeed, I am of the Muslims. Right. So look at the eye on the left hand side. My national code amendment what the Iowa law calls to a law Well, I mean, a solid does righteous deeds, we'll call it in any minute I'm assuming it says I'm that of the Muslims. I'll hasn't said today.
He said Heather habibollah. Heather will he will lie. This is the Beloved of Allah and the will of Allah Subhana Allah. He said SLM Allah, Allah, he said, but that's at the bottom right submits to Allah.
Why me? Let me tie it he does work. So obedience, right? So he, he obey the law, and what
he lay here and cause to the creation to him, you see the statement, his statement goes in reverse order of the eye, but it's the it matches up perfectly. It matches up so he went when he would recite this ad, that's what he was saying that this is the one on Milan loves, not these type of people, these type of people, these type
of people are the best people whose ranks will be the highest on the Day of Judgment. What what Who are these types of people, those who do what, submit to Allah do works of obedience, and he they obey laws, fantastic. And then they call others to Allah. He said, these will be the people whose ranks will be the highest on the Day of Judgment, right? They are the ones who has exempted from being losers when he said well,
okay, so Allah Subhana Allah says, Well, last by Danny, he's swearing by a Lhasa.
Which, I mean, a lot of times they translate as like here, it says, by time, and if we want to be more specific, by alasa
ascertain because there's a specific meaning to that time of the day, which means that what
is the end of the day time is running out. Right? So you should feel that it's running out in the in Santa lovey has may cause a loss, and it's almost It's almost over. I mean, like, it's almost determined because the time is right.
At the end of the day, we'll acid in the in Santa Luffy hustle. So this is the job will custom and basically an answer to what he was trying to add is making his oath about. And so he's swearing that mankind is in loss and ruin.
But there's some that are exempted from that loss from that ruined, and they are 11, Edina
by time, indeed, mankind is in loss, except for those who have the lead, and then righteous de la Latina, Emma new woman who saw the hat, see how that lines up with
those who work in any mineral muslimeen they submitted to a lot, and why me lasallian and they did those righteous deeds. Right, so allies which are exempted them from being at last night, and advised each other to truth. And I advised each other to patience in this store.
In this store, a lot of swore, swore that mankind is in laws, except those who perfected themselves with belief and righteous deeds, and affected others, advising them about belief and good deeds. So notice that these are the qualities again,
submit to Allah
obey Allah. In order to submit to a law you have to have knowledge
and you have to have that will to follow your knowledge. In order to obey a law you have to have knowledge of what it is that constitutes obedience and then you have to follow that and then you call the creation to Allah. And that part is important because there is a in this eye and this eye, there is a a nod, if you will to a class because it says what
men die Illa they call to Allah.
Mohammed bin Abdullah hare Rahim Allah to Allah and que tiempo he when he brings this ayah
he said that there's a subtle call to a class and this is because many of the people they say the Anika theodon lo that he will hack for who enter o l NFC, even though it looks like he's calling to the truth, he's actually doing what calling to himself. So he may be saying the truth, but his call is actually to himself, as the scholars call him, even Eddie funi
the son of you should know me. And another way. In other words, he talks because he wants people to know that he's there. Even though what he's saying is correct. Even though what he's saying is right. But the his intention is because he wants to be he wants to be known. He wants to be heard. He wants people to know who he is.
And some people call to a lot, but it's really a call to themselves, or their shave, or their organization or whatever it might be, what a mess it in that actually calling to Allah has to be pure. And if it's not pure, then it's not accepted by last
fight. He goes on to say that in this surah Allah Subhana Allah swears that mankind is lost, except those who perfect themselves and those who perfect others. Okay, bow. So here we have, who are those who are saved from loss those who would perfect themselves and those who perfect others? How do you protect yourself through amen and righteous actions, knowledge and actions, beneficial knowledge and righteous deeds? Pamela? How do you protect others?
By advising them with what you know to be the truth.
So that knowledge that you have now you have to do what? You share it with other people, and then encouraging suburb, encouraging summer, both for yourself and for them. So they're going if they know what the truth is that now they have to implement it that needs summer. And when you tell people that they shouldn't do stuff, you know what they can do?
Sorry? No, you tell them Listen, don't do ABC and D. If you tell them too many times, you know that they're not gonna like you too much. And you're gonna need somewhere to keep on that path of telling people Hey, listen, that's not the right thing to do. This is the right thing to do. Right? How many people
Parents just get tired.
Right? Okay, how many of you have younger siblings?
younger brothers and sisters? Everybody knows that the younger brothers and sisters would they get away with? They get away with stuff that the older ones didn't Why? Why do you think that his parents got tired? They ran out of suburbs.
They ran out of Southern because you just get tired tell them same thing over and over again. Right? But that's the velocity to summer. I need to stay on that path of command and the good and forbidding evil encouraging people to worship a loss fantastic. It takes Southern otherwise just ran out of steam.
Right so that Tomasi was suffered is also important. And as part of the perfect you you taking that initiative to perfect others now, calling him sheffy. I'm going to I'm going to finish this section here and shout out to it. So and I know we only have a few minutes left.
So in the moment Chevy rahimullah Charlie said if people contemplated sorta to Lhasa, it will suffice them
if they contemplate a sort of philosophy, it would suffice them now explaining the statement. What does that mean it suffices them suffice them how, why?
But what why? What are we searching for? What do we want?
understanding of email,
sorry, you know, what? Is this mean?
Is it this one
is off, so it's my
let me head out.
if you look at this surah,
what we want to avoid is what a lions will do, cause we want to avoid loss, one avoid being being the people who don't gain the people who are ruined. We want to avoid that.
How do you avoid that? You avoid that through doing the things that loss fans out, I mentioned in the sutra, protecting yourself and protecting others. And if you contemplate overnight, that's enough. So enough, we It doesn't mean that you don't need the rest of the Quran. That's not what he meant. Chevy's saying that, but he's saying in terms of a general prescription for what you need for success, which is the opposite of a loser. It's right in sort of the last
set to ponder over. Now,
a person cannot be a true follower of a loss messenger sallallahu wasallam unless he calls to Allah with vasila for the ayah coletti is really annoying a lie and I will see a Latina woman in 70 say this my way and vital law with basura and those who follow me, when a law uses the words, ADIRU Illa I invite so law to explain the way upon which allows messengers to live with sentiment is okay, hence, inviting to a law must be his way that is the profits way, in the way of his followers. So whoever does not invite to Allah will not be upon the way of laws messenger, some of the low on he was in the
year one, let that sink in.
Let it sink in. I want to stop there because I know we're out of time. But let that sink in. If you do not call to Allah.
Even if you're just silent.
That's not the way of the Prophet it is. So not to say doesn't mean that you can never be silent and you should be silent a lot. But it means that if you never have any initiative to invite to the way of Islam,
it's a call to Allah, that you're not following the way of the Prophet it is slightly silly, because the prophet SAW his son and said this is my way I call to Allah upon elbasy Allah and we will talk about Basilan inshallah tada but just very quickly, usually it's translated as insight or knowledge I call to law with knowledge. And as we'll see and basura is his proofs and evidences right
so calling to Allah and with proofs and evidences the the Arabs use the word vasila to talk about the traces of they use the Sierra when he talks about the traces of blood that is left by an animal that has been that was pray what they call it when you when you hunt
that the wounded animal so like for example, if they they hit a rabbit with the with the bullet with the arrow and then but it didn't kill it, so it was going but it's still bleeding.
All you have to do is what just follow that that's called vasila Okay, so it gives you a lead is a clear path, you know that that shows you what you know what's leading to you.
To your target. So we talked about that a long time. Next week. Hopefully, you can answer at least some of these questions. So what are the four essential matters for attaining a man in the religion? Bismillah? Ha, you can work together
guiding, right, guiding others calling others and then the last, which we didn't cover today, but we will inshallah is that you do that in a way that complies to the way of the messenger and a selector snap tight. Does every Muslim have to believe that there is a bridge over Hellfire that must be crossed before entering gentlemen?
It's not a yes or no answer. It's actually not it says does but it's not a yes or no answer. So
right, if you if you are informed, and you know that this is a from Allah, Allah and His Messenger, then you have to believe in it, but it's not from the minimum requirements of belief in the hereafter. But once you hear that Hadith, the prophet say something you know, as a Muslim, sizable hearty, right, you know, it's a Hey, then you have to believe it. But that's not a requirement for those who haven't studied. But the bare minimums are requirements for everybody. So those are the things you have to teach your children you have to make sure that you know the people that are under your care that they the people you're responsible for that they know these things, while I was
faking the last pantallas decree, cutter Matt explicitly mentioned amongst the fundamentals of Amen, because belief in the laws decree is what is part of belief in Allah as part of belief in Allah, what qualities are possessed by those who are saved from ruin and this life in the next
before to us over somebody will tell us a little hack that's perfecting others they first what perfect themselves so if you wanted to say brought the USA those who perfect themselves in perfect others and then if you want to go into detail they perfect themselves with a man and I'm going to solid right faith and righteous deeds and a perfect others through through teaching them and encouraging them with sub what the demand is, shall we say about Soto to Lhasa he said,
if this if people would ponder over this sorta right, it would suffice them explain his statement we just did so well. All items allow some robotic and nbm hamster panicle over hamburger shadowline ancestor protocol to be like
