Today, which is the 12th of January 2021.
The 28th of July our
which means handler we only have three months until I'm obeying saliva jelly but Leona shoutout Ramadan you're in analyse I'm a pm as philosopher data to make us most those who reach Ramadan and that he aids us in fasting and standing it's night.
So we're going to start our study of imminent claims message from the book or the Salah, a taboo tabookey Yeah. And as we'll cover when we go along, it is also called provisions for the spiritual journey.
And as is customary in the beginning,
we need to get those juices flowing.
Mashallah, everybody wake up, you wake up, she
still sleeps panela Alright, get the juices flowing now.
Say for Todd, if you can read the questions.
By the end.
By the end of tonight's lesson, is be able to answer these questions. Why is this treatise
called a message from the book? When was it written? To whom was it written? What are the major themes of this trees? And as the kids that tree ties? No trees is
what I am. There's no I in my last say, comprises all that is good for people in this life. And the year after
our beer and taqwa the same explain the answer
is no KVM refers to a rule that helps to eliminate many misconceptions discuss this important rule, what does the word bitter mean? What is its opposite?
So, Hannah law I mean, just from the questions, you can start to see how important this book is and even though this is just the first lesson, and it is a book full of a benefits from the beginning to the end.
So Hana law it requires
that you give it your attention though.
And I will say here before we go much further,
this book along with another book by Immanuel Kai m Adele
What do they call it disease in its cures like disease of the heart spiritual diseases Indian cures. This book along with a download though I used to be read in succession and the doodles of the old man especially
in Riyadh in any other places around here, but
the daughters of Sheikh Mohammed bin Ibrahim al Bashir Rahim Allah was the sheriff of symbolises bin bags. He was the
First like official Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Hamad bin Ibrahim.
And in the way that I used to teach like you, if you read the biographies of the early scholars and like, mmm, no, he had 13 lessons in a day, either he was attending them or giving the lessons but the point is, like, some of the scholars I mean, that's what they that's what they did they morning after fudger they had a daughter, so maybe to even then after mother but another daughter too, and then after that, depending on time of the year, right. So it was all this book, that is every Saturday at Temple kiya the message from Tim Cook, and a dad with the way when they finish one they start the other one, he finished that one, they start the next one. It just was cast. So panela and,
and you'll see inshallah any, every Muslim needs the knowledge that's in this book, it's Pamela.
It's a thorough explanation of some of the ads in the Koran. So in any event, as you can see, we're going to cover today we like to add some preliminary information about this book and cover and you look at the broad themes of the book. And then we'll go into the I am is explaining which I think you can probably figure it out from the next question which says, I've been in touch what is sane, right? So he's going to be explaining the IRA, what's our new eligibility what tequila and then there are some rules that have no claim is going to refer to inshallah Tada. So before we get started, let's just deal with the title of the book. So as you can see, here, there's, there are
actually three, this book has been printed
more than once in English. When it first came out, it looked like this. I don't know if any of you are old enough to remember that. But it looked like the book on the left hand side, and it was called the magnificent journey. That's the that was the title that it was given in the English language.
Even though in Arabic under the magnificent journey, it says every Saturday at buki.
It was then printed again a second edition. And not all of these are the same translated as Schafer. Dr. Mohammed Gabelli. Have you though allowed to add OSHA as allies or children? Yes, fear. And I was trying to cure him
while he was on law Anyway, I'll talk to talk about the translation a bit later inshallah the the second edition of that one, he changed the name because then he started a series called The Magnificent journey. So he kind of left that title behind for the for the translation and he just called it as you can see, here are the sad to buki message from Tim Cook. Live in Ohio. And that one, go Hold it up. See that? That's that book right there. Okay. No longer exists anywhere in Philadelphia, by the way a lot.
Now the thing is, and again, I don't want to get too technical, but you have to understand, okay, how do I translate a book? What do I have to in order to translate this book? Would I need first? Read the original Arabic, right. So the original that
Dr. Mohammed, your belly used to translate was this edition of the book by that that's the tactic by cinnamyl. Hillary,
one of the students have shaken Bernie law. So and in that particular edition, he didn't have the the final chapter
of the book. And so this one that you have right there, doesn't have the final chapter of the book. All right. Then he came after the final chapter was, so this edition by Hillel, there is another edition that came later by animal for white, and they did all of his books under the
let's just say oversight of shikaka, who's eight. And then some of them have the team that is specialized in the books.
So they came and they found 10 different main scripts for a reseller to bukiet. And that's where they found that many of those main scripts had that last chapter in it. And so then that was printed, and then Dr. Valley came back and added the last chapter. And that's in this version here. Okay, now, why do we have an issue? The issue is the last time this was printed was 2007.
So you can't find it. So Panama. I mean, literally, like even if you scour the net you try to order from England or I don't know South Africa, it's very difficult to find the book. So Alhamdulillah just yesterday, we got permission from the family of the sheriff to PDF it so
shala by next week, it will be available on PDF.
Because there is no print version available. And that way we won't have to copy, you know, and put everything on the on the slides today. Because most people don't have a book and don't have the ability to have a book
that you'll find the print
on the screen inshallah. Yes.
You sure? Where?
Maybe that's what they tell you online, I went
they must have ordered some new ones.
Okay. Last week, I scoured the market online. And
so you said they had 100? Okay, so they found a way to get them then?
Well, what happens is sometimes.
So what happens is most of the times when these books get printed, they get printed in the 1000s. Right? So let's just say there's 3000.
Somebody a story gets them. There's no market for it.
They, they take it off the shelves, right? And then before the computer era, and everything like that we got barcodes and you can kind of keep your inventory? Well, it depends on the memory of the store owner can tell you if we put that in the boxes such and such a place. And so again, 2007 hasn't been printed since. In fact, if you look at that edition, I'm sure it probably says 2007 on inside, like, hello. All right. So that's just a little bit about the book in Arabic has been printed with a couple of titles. The most famous of them are the salad vegetable key message from the book. And the other one is Zed and mohajir. Era B Zed is the provisions of mohajir is the one
who's migrating Elantra B to his Lord. Okay, so, in other words, this book is the provisions that you need along the road as you are traveling to meet your Lord subhanho wa Taala. And every one of us is is a musang fish. I mean that this
our life in this on this earth is traveling the sweater profit it is that it was sending us a boon for dunya Kanika right even Oh Abu severen be in this life as you as if you are a hurried, meaning a person who's a stranger to that particular land, because this is not your land. So it's as if you are a stranger. He said, Oh, Abby disappeared, which may which is even different than a stranger to the land is somebody that's just passing through is just commuting. So somebody can be strange to Atlanta, they stay there for a few weeks or whatever the situation may be. They still not from that land. It's still strange in Atlanta, but it's not like the person who just knows that they're only
stopping there to fill up with the gas and keep it moving
and get a cup of coffee like
this. So, why is it called Why is it called a message from a book? This is not rocket science anybody got an idea?
Because he fight because he wrote this particular book or this letter this treaties into book. So here you can see two book has the red dot under is pretty large.
Whereas to boot from Medina
if you were in Medina, how would you have to travel to get to book like which direction?
North West right Northwest same thing because Medina is almost directly north of Mecca. Right so so to book is also northwest of Mecca as you can see down a pipe what significance does the book have in Islamic history? See the Prophet it so it was named as the book have any significance?
And Mashallah, by the Battle of two book were the three brothers David three Sahaba of the Allahu taala and home where they stay back to you. So the so the battle is implicitly mentioned in the Quran. So to tilbyr because he's talking to Allah Subhana Allah talks about the letter, a Latina to high level, right, the 123 who stayed back tired, the Battle of tupu how many Muslims died in the battle took
how many Muslims died in the battle to
feed them Jimmy I
was there the Coleman family
Bismillah Anybody else?
Who's I see with the mask. I don't know. He's talking
So he got
five. So So okay. I'll give you one more chance Anybody else? So we got ABC and give me a D.
And I got to know the answer.
Okay. All right. So we've got 7090, zero and 33. And then he is none of the above. So how many?
The answer is zero. The Muslims didn't fight. And to book though it was the largest Muslim army that was was gathered of the prophet Isaiah salado, same Sorry, it's the largest army during the lifetime of the prophet Isaiah Salatu. Salam that was that was getting somewhere between 20 and 30,000. And they
left out from Medina, in budget of the ninth year after the hegemon. So this was the last battle of the Prophet it assigned to Sudan. Well, it actually never happened. But there was the threat from the Byzantines,
often translated as the Romans because these were the Eastern Roman,
eastern part of the Roman Empire, which,
which is not necessarily significant, except that a lot of times when you see in the literature when the property is salatu salam talks about the people of Rome,
that you find that the translators often write the Romans, but it's not the Romans from Rome that's in Italy, is the Romans from the Roman Empire, the eastern side more than the Greeks actually.
So it's just a side note. So this is where to book is now where's even all came from? For those of you who study from before with us?
Come on now.
Sephora sales from How do I know
where it came from?
Are you even Okay, it was from Damascus, to book was not a, like, center of knowledge in Greek civilization or otherwise. In fact, it wasn't anything until the Prophet it is a lot to say and went there. And then later the Muslims you know, set up camp there right now, there's half a million people into one of the largest cities in that part of Arabia tight. But um,
so he's from Damascus. What was he doing into book?
This Miller? I just want you to use your brains. I want you to talk Thank you. If you get it wrong, I promise you, I promise you Nothing will happen. shala
Okay, he was traveling.
Okay. Very nice. So what was happening actually was he was on his way back from Hajj. Okay, so you may hedge and on the way back from hedge as he's going back to this so you can see he's a mecca he's got to go through to boop to get back up top to Syria and Damascus so here you can see what's a book is it's in the middle of the screen.
At the bottom, you see everybody seats a book, okay, directly north of two book, you see it you go up about 650 kilometers and you hit Damascus okay. So on his way back, on his way back.
He wrote he stopped into book he was into a book and he wrote this letter.
At the end of the letter he mentioned that he is writing this to his brothers men tala tiller in and from the students of knowledge, and his colleagues, his his, you know, his campaigns in Damascus.
And he also mentions to them and we'll get to this at the end of the letter inshallah, but I think it's important to mention is here, he says that a lot of times, when people get back from a trip,
everybody wants to sit around and tell stories about what happened, right? This happened, and that happened. I saw this and this thing, right. And so you want to talk about your trip, he says, of which days very little fade, and it's, there's not a lot of benefit, you know, in talking about what happened, and he just for the sake of mentioning what happened, right materials and more Majira and that's much better yet. So he's just saying, you know, just people just talking but he says the best
gift, any that somebody can bring back when they travel is in the knowledge that they got in that particular place. And so it all kind of stops here. And he writes this letter to his companions and Subhana Allah. And as we go through it, you'll see it's just, it's amazing the breadth of his knowledge, number one, but but number two, that fifth of the Columbia and he really did have a solid understanding of the heart, and the diseases of the heart and what makes the heart stronger, and so panela so
as we go through this letter be the line Tada.
One of the things that struck me and Allah Subhana Allah knows best, I haven't heard any of the other scholars mentioned this.
But he's writing this on the way back from hedge. And apparently,
the level of Eman obviously increases when you obey a loss pentatonic. Right. And so for any of you have may had you gone through that experience of like, literally, you know,
I mean, total submission and in humbling yourself before loss of habitat,
that feeling that comes post hides, I mean, just for a comparison, I mean, look at how a person gets the first couple days of Ramadan, and then they go in, and then those last 10 days of Ramadan, that feeling, you don't get that. At other times. It's that feeling of being immersed in the bed, and then a lost pet Allah having cleansed you, and purified you as you went through that a bed. And so the, the fact that he stopped that he stopped at this stage, and wrote this letter means that much more, right, because you can tell that there's another level of Amen.
You know, Subhana Allah, and I think that this is
just important to mention, that for all of us, you know, when Allah Subhana, Allah blesses us to go through things that help us to raise our Amen. Whatever thoughts you have, at that point, take your delaine bulky tab, and he
basically, it actually literally means to lock it up by writing it down. And in other words,
put the put the shackles on that knowledge by making sure that you write it down.
and ease of handling your thoughts, things that you go through when Allah Subhana Allah blesses you to get through something even. So Pamela, I mean, you think about somebody who's going through a tough time, and then allies will bless them to get out of that time in the way that they feel. capture that capture that when you feel your Eman is strong, and you have these thoughts that you read it from the Quran is something becomes clear to you that was never clear to you before, write it down. Make sure you capture that because of Hana law. I mean, and this is what you see, I mean, even will capture something for us here. And it's precious. And as we go through it being the lights
out, I will see you know how precious it is. There are certain parts that are technical, only because a scholar in general is going to display the scholarship, even if they're not trying to write even if they just tried to, you know, keep it at a very basic level, sometimes it's going to go you know, it's going to be at a little higher level, we'll work through those parts of the land don't, I don't want you to get caught up in the technicalities. I want you to feel the beauty of what he's talking about. In this particular treaties and shall
Here before we actually get into the meat of the reseller shala.
Let's just take a minute to look at the broad themes. Now. You can also go through the table of contents in English, it's pretty thorough,
give you an idea of what's going to be covered in the book, but some of it
is from the HDX head of
the translator and some of the full sold away breaks it up from his HD head that I've tried to capture the main ideas here and they are six and I want you to know them. I don't want I'm not turning this
to the next slide until you've memorized these. Alright, so number one followship.
Number one, the two types of cooperation. So this is the first theme and in fact, when you look at it, it's like almost everything goes back to this anyway. Right, which is the two types of cooperation
Cooperation allows fantatic commands us to cooperate on some things, and prohibited cooperation. And what does cooperation mean? By the way?
If you cooperate with somebody, what does that mean?
So you're working with them,
for what purpose?
To attain a common goal, right? So you have a common goal in mind. And we're going to work together today, it's commanded
to work together towards common goals that are, that are good. But it's forbidden and prohibited to work together towards common goals that are that are evil. And, and people do both. And people do both. And in fact,
you know, as we work our way down to number six, the reason why and allows plants animals best, but
when you look at today, cooperation between people has reached heights that perhaps it hasn't reached in the past. And that's just by virtue of the devices that we have to communicate with each other.
In fact, in fact, Sue panela,
one of our scholars says that the, the phone that you carry in your pocket is actually a Sahib lek, Sahib, and it is your companion,
you do look a little higher or sharp,
it can take you two paths of good, or it can take you two paths of evil, and you own it, and you carry it
in your pocket.
But it can lead you to a lot of different things. Or it can lead you just to wasting time, which eventually is evil.
So the reality is, is that with these modern forms of communication comes more cooperation, meaning that you are working with people through that through these instruments. And what you're working towards is either good, or it's not good.
I need the messages that you send people, are they good? Are they not good? are you setting them up? Are they setting you up? For something that's good or not good.
So the reality is, is that this book sheds light on that, and a lot of times to panela.
we tend to
we tend to have this ability to like split our minds, some things we think about in terms of Islam, and other things we just let happen.
Like we don't,
we don't analyze it from that Muslim lens. So you just just let it happen. That's just the way things are, why do you do certain things, I don't know. It's just the way it's done. But as a Muslim, everything has to go through that Muslim lens, it has to go through that Islamic filter that should be built inside of you. Right that you work towards it strengthening all of the time making sure that filter gets smaller and smaller and smaller so that only pure Islam can get through.
Otherwise, I mean, we just follow it every time they can Harry does that
mean reality is that that's a setup for failure in and of itself. Because this society specifically and is not set up to aid the Muslims achieved the pleasure of a loss of habitat.
Well, I never heard the hot part man that's Mashallah. I have number two.
Number two, definition of beer.
Right. So and today inshallah, we're going to start being the land, we're going to cover some of a beer, we will not get into topo today, or I don't expect to, but the definition of beer and tequila are fundamental to the study of this book, and then we'll call him spends quite a bit of time with both. Now, number three, migration to a lot and that is the migration of the heart to a loss of Hannah who will tada And fourthly, migration to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and ultimately, those two by understanding migration of the heart to Allah, and understanding the migration of the hearts of the Messenger of Allah de sola to sit in. Ultimately, that is a very deep
thorough explanation of a shadow in La ilaha illallah wa shadow and the Mohammedan Rasulullah. Which is why this book
Is is really good, even for people who are new to Islam.
But, but it does require some,
some explanation and it's, it's not that easy to work through it. But if you do work through it in shallow Tada, then you will have the opportunity and you will have the ability in sha Allah to Allah to, you know, sit on the side, read it over and over again. And it will give you a much better understanding of the show had to take
a deeper understanding now. Yes, number five, the importance of contemplating the meanings of the Quran.
And this is throughout the book. But then it all came has a specific section where he deals with the story of the angels who visited Ibrahim
and goes into detail about that, and and does practical to depth boy, right? How do you contemplate the crime. So beyond just what may appear like a, let's just call it a superficial reading.
This is now going in deep, and he's going to do a practical
let's just say a practical exercise of today.
And on top of that, when we get there, what you'll see is that Immanuel Kant lays out, he describes to dev board as being the be all end all. In other words, once the Muslim gets to the point that all they think about is the Quran.
And that they are, they are able to interpret everything through their experience and understanding of the Quran, then that shows that the Muslim has reached that level of his heart having migrated to Allah subhana wa tada into the Messenger of Allah is in it.
And that part of the book is absolutely phenomenal. And he's panela. And it shows that with the tofik of Allah subhanho wa Taala there's a road to get there.
And, and that, for me is one of the most beautiful parts of this book is that it shows you it doesn't just talk about it. Right? Because you there are a lot of books that talk about loving the law. And you know,
how to, you know, hoping and Allah Subhana Allah fearing the loss of hands and to the end of I mean, there's a lot of books that talk about it. There aren't a lot that tell you how to get there. Where do I start? How do I get that done?
In this particular book, even though clam does quite a bit when he talks about to the Board of trying to help those people who want to migrate to a loss of habitat and how to do that. And then lastly, number six good companionship and this is
he ends the book on this note. He talks about being a companion of those who have left this earth but is still alive.
In other words, the true practitioners of Islam, the prophet Isaiah salatu salam and his companions and those who follow them and the legacy that they left behind. Because that legacy that they left behind the knowledge that they left behind, is, in fact what keeps them alive on the tongues of people, though their bodies are no longer on earth. And he talks about the importance of aligning yourself with them and being their companions on that journey because they were the people who who traveled that journey and was successful and traveling that journey they are the people who are lost pensado en la ciudad de La Nina, and untidy right? So they are the ones whom Allah Subhana Allah has
blessed. And all of us, every single human being, including the prophet Isaiah Salatu, was Salam himself needed good companions. And Allah Subhana, Allah chose the best of mankind, and two beasts to surround the prophet Isaiah Salatu was sitting, and to guide him along the way, which is why I listened, hold the Sahaba in such high esteem. And it is the one of the fundamental differences between Allison and the Shia, who make takfeer of the companions of the Prophet Isaiah Salatu was set in and they say that the worst of people to walk Planet Earth were the ones who around the prophet Isaiah Salatu was today which absolutely
is nothing but an indictment of the messenger himself. So the lion it was
because of a person is only surrounded by any people who are deceitful and and you know hypocrites and so forth when the other fella then what does that say about about that particular person? The the issue of good companionship is extremely important. It ties right back in
To where the book starts, which is what to add one other ability, what taqwa and cooperate, and bitter and tequila, and so you need good companions on that journey. And, you know, some handle also, this is part of the, the reseller or part one of the main components, if you will, and broad themes of reseller tabookey. The message from the book,
we're going to start shallow data with a
brief with just very quickly read again, something about the author of an okay Mahima Tada, which starts on Roman numeral page 19. In the book,
photoshoot price, because his name and the author of this book is
Certain forays of Damascus He is best known as it was Josie and brief
set up the custodian named so because our josiane School in Damascus was under the custody of his father
is known as a family of other men. So just for those of you who remember before when we took this The aim of a school even though
it was under the custody of his father, a custodian has a I don't know.
It seems to have a connotation maybe that doesn't fit here. But that so his father was the the principal, the president of the school, if you will, that's what a tie him is. And,
and he was the son of hiam Al Jazeera. Yes, sir. That's very important.
To keep clean. Yeah. concerning what you're saying? The principle, right, that that's what the aim is. And even custodian is not just that that's why I'm saying from our consultations, right. You know, when we think custodian we don't think of somebody who oversees the school.
I just wanted to clarify. Yeah.
Yeah, father. He was born in 7691 92 of the Christian era in the village of Zulu to the south east. It's actually Zahra but yeah, southeast of Damascus, but he grew up in Damascus know
his teachers didn't know Chi and move to Damascus and learn the Islamic knowledge under a number of prominent scholars. In addition to his father, his teachers included as she had a nap at NAB bootsy just get Dean in new suit, a man of a buffalo news.
App good. Money.
Smart tune. Fatima, Johar, Sophia D and Hindi. We talked we talked about Sofia, Dino Hindi the last time because he was one of the
and he was saying to me and I'm Ola. And he was one of the ones that
argued against shaker slam. Even during the debate about was tea.
Marisa, um, what
is the most memorable teacher however, was
telling me about it no kind battled him greatly. And he spent many of his youthful years in his company from 712 inch d 213 12. And a corresponding to 1312 the Christian era and to entertain me is death and 728 he loved it and Tamia dearly, comprehended his teachings and worked on clarifying and spreading his knowledge and writings after his death and were to check with Sam die.
He died is 728 were
in prison collective.
He died in prison in Damascus, even though Clayton was in prison with him when you
tie his teaching methodology to scale Okay, his students.
So this is page 21. So this goes through his teachings and methodology, his writings shallow and you get the book or when it's uploaded. Now you can go back and look at some of this.
Some of his most famous writings that you would all have heard of Xactimate, for example, which is a tremendous book.
Total could have helped me see as a shadow II like his death and then let's read about this book real quick now. His death is on page 20 the Roman numeral 22. His death in no client died on the evening of Thursday 23rd a budget 751
people prayed over him that just as a prayer
The following day in the great Masjid of Damascus, he was buried in a Baptist
cemetery. He was highly praised by succeeding when I met, such as half the people in the budget and happy that that that had been my show, if necessary, the mashpee just didn't exist. zuri azuri
Yeah, and I'm surprised he didn't mention even Kathy, but even Kathy,
there's a statement in Charlotte next week.
I'll make a slide of it. But there's a statement from him. And he talks about that a bad day, but don't call him
that you won't understand, or at least a lanos best, but I remember when we read it the last time and it was amazing to think about it. But then when you get to the part in this book, where he talks about
when he talks about living with those who have already passed from this earth, and how through that you will understand everything about the people, but the people won't understand you.
Because you're living for a different purpose. Even though you live amongst them you're not of them. Because you are with another people your life your heart is attached to your heart is attached to somebody else. It's attached to the Prophet it is a lot to say it's attached to a bucket, you read the the biographies of the resume of the cellophane, you try to follow their way and they become your friends.
You You know them intimately, you know, things about them, you know, as a panelist. So your perspective on life is very different from people who work nine to five in a whole day is built around investing in 401, K's and how to grow, do you know assets and they have no concept about the hereafter.
And so you understand what they're going through. Because you've been there, you've done that, and you can see how they living but they can't understand. And so Subhanallah putting that in light of who he was in terms of his he better he just prayed for a long time and everybody was like, man, why don't you just like that's enough. And it was just like, this is nothing compared with the privacy zone. Did you know
what I'm saying? Yeah, the general background on the book. This book is instrumental in explaining the true methodology adherence to a loss that his book is messengered and he said that he was slammed soon, and the guy is at the Sahaba barely allowed one shoe to distinguish an insightful approach in delving into the Islamic text is no kind of starts off by explaining the qualities of righteousness and piety required from every individual, both in practice and in dialogue. In other words, the righteousness and piety that is required of you to implement and what you call other people to and what you advise them with and, and your cooperation with them.
The true meaning of Asia, that is migration to a loss upon what the era and His Messenger at a show that was tonight, discussing in the process, full submission to the messengers that I selected was selected sooner as an integral requirement of he man. He then deliberates on the situation of true misery and true happiness, both being outcomes of a person's performance in this life, both being outcomes of a person's heijunka. So the extent of their hygiene led to a loss of habitat and to the message it select which scenario is going to determine the extent of their happiness and misery.
Towards the end of the book, in the kind stipulates the requirements of the journey of migration, presenting along the way, important guidelines for sound comprehension of the Quran, in addition to its valuable methodology coverage, but is the logical coverage,
methodological coverage, this book is very touching in its address to the soul and heart, whence we derived the current English title. Yeah, so he's saying that this is where he got this title, the spiritual journey to Allah and His messenger. Right? This is a characteristic
that is rarely found in writings of other authors.
Yeah, and in fact, I mean, to his point here, where he says characteristic of internal pain that's rarely found in writings of other authors. And this particular book
is Yanni according to one of our mistakes exile Hello, Samia, happy Lola. It is the best book that is written
On hijet last pantalla, Hazleton kuruvilla last Saturday migration of the hearts to Allah.
Despite the fact that it's it's not a it's not a long book, despite the fact that is not long it is the best book written on on this particular topic. 100 Isla de la Luna tofi
toy this villa la nada Bismillah pay
It's it's there, it's there.
So we're gonna start with the beginning of the book here Bismillah. This introduction, the Shaykh. Eman Allah Muhammad, I'd be better known as Al Jazeera abbreviated as I am. May Allah be pleased with him and may He please him said the following in the message that he sent out from took on the aid of Mr. Harun. 733 Yeah, so this this message was
written after 11am
Rahim Allah Hosanna made Hajj in the year 732.
Okay, and then on the way back, he wrote this letter approximately a month after Hajj. Right, so Muharram, which is the first month of the Islamic calendar and hijras may in the ledger, which is the last month of this Islamic calendar. So Hydra was done in 14 3014. And in 732, and then he wrote this letter and 733 A month later, okay. And we'll have one when he was on his way back. And so the journey and you have to look at like this, the journey from Mecca to Medina is approximately nine, a nine day journey. Okay. And then the journey from Medina to book is like 12 days, it's longer, it's it's long, maybe more than that. But the point is, it took him some time, obviously after hatch,
even if he left like on the 15th. And it would have taken him some time 15th of the HMC it would have taken him some time to get to, to book.
Now, the happiness of the human being Okay, okay.
There's a little bit difference.
Yeah, that's true. It's, it's not much different, you just move the title around. And those are titles from the,
from the translator. So I guess I need to just, I'm going to say something about the translation, because I think it is important for us, as we read these books,
to just have a general introduction to the translation process so that it can be appreciated.
Translating any work by eminent aim is not easy.
I'm saying translating it from his language to Arabic of today is even not easy. Meaning that if an Arab was a native Arab speaker was to take a book by him and then try to explain it to somebody in Arabic, they may have some difficulty doing so. Alright.
So even more so trying to take that book by a little client and render it into the English language
is not an easy task.
I will say that the translator have either Hello, Tyler
has done a tremendous job in certain places of taking some very difficult
constructs that not just concepts, but the way it was written. And simplifying it and making it work in the English language. Well, hamdulillah there are other places and I will make note of them where there are omissions. And I'm not sure why certain things were omitted. It could be the issue of additions. I haven't checked every Arabic edition and look back and see the six minima. He loudly mentioned this and this one didn't mention it or whatever.
But there are certain omissions, and I will I will highlight those in the backside because you're going to need to write in your book at that particular place because we want to capture what he actually wrote. There are other additions that the
that the translated did not expressly mentioned, is an addition that's
Something that a translator, if you ever get into the field of translating, that's something that you should not do.
You should not add anything to the text without it being clear. That's an addition. So for example here, where it says the happiness of a human being, that should be in brackets, so that you know that that was not something that was in the original, or it should have been mentioned in the introduction, I did read the introduction, I didn't see him mention anything about that, that he added, you know, titles here and there, whatever. So those things have to be clear, because otherwise it appears that this is from the statement of no claim it's not. All right. So
those things I will point out along the way, in the later but but all in all, all in all,
the translator did a very good job of capturing the meanings.
And so style and that type of thing that's going to vary from translated translator and preference and how you would have done it yourself. That's not really such a big deal. He did a decent job of capturing the meanings there are some places where
throughout the book, you'll you'll see
where I think that another
word should have been used or even some places sentences that would have done a better job of conveying the meaning that came intended. I will also point those out as we go along. And shallow Tada. So here we have our first omission By the way,
which is before he gets to saying I glorify and praise Allah.
It's he's robbed the Alo town and a lot of who tabula de se automata book, feminine moharram Sen. Tara with her 1870 Mia, mean Angela, Tina, but we're bad ears Sal in mundo maluma to let's see, a wallow hat This is not here and it should be by the salad mob mentality of aloha either to large jumps on the heading for in the hat and then it goes on to mention amount of money now they come for Saleemul. So, what you would want to write here after it says 733 after digital, if you have the book,
you want to write after sending the poem
after sending the poem that starts with
and then you have your quotation mark, if the morning sun rises,
it is a sign
of my greetings to you.
So convey the synapse. Yes.
If the morning sun rises, it is a sign
of my greetings to you. So send this at AMS. And in other words, he sent this poem first.
And this poem
is known as elmia. And even acclaims mi mi, Mo k m is famous for two different poems. One is called elmia. And the other one is called and munia.
Anybody want to guess why it's called Mimi?
And one other one is called New nia.
Because right, because the me Mia poem, every line ends with a meme. And the new Nia poem, every line ends with a new
and there's a very big difference between the two. And Mimi is like 180 lines or give or take, depending on which version you get, even though she got me on him a lot as an explanation of Armenia.
That version is 181 lines.
And new Nia is 5842 lines.
And that's where he goes into detail of the athlete of Alison, the best poem on athlete Alison Allen. Good luck.
not translated yet or ever inshallah, if you need to learn Arabic and then you can read.
That's a poem.
It all rhymes the whole thing. 5842 man
it follows a certain measure. Yes. So this is what they call an old old animal or an old. So it's, it's the, it's the measure of the lines. Not just that it rhymes. That's correct.
So in any event, in Arabic, it says after he sent so it says 733, after the after he sent his poem that starts with either talar chimps on the head, right, what I just mentioned in English. So he sent that poem first. that poem is about, it's about gender.
About record it, you know?
So it's it's more one of those a heart softening
poems if you will.
I glorify and praise a lot with all the praise
all the praise that he deserves, yeah, but Mohammed de Allah t who Allah. So
yeah, that's there. I asked a lot.
I asked a lot grant distinguished honor and peace to the Seal of the Prophets and Messengers Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam. O Allah says in his book with the,
with the ad window.
mean when, under what law in
help one another in beer and tequila, and do not help one another in Islam, sin and transgression and revere and fear law, barely a law is severe and punishment.
This ayah comprises all that is good for the people in this life and the hereafter in regard to their mutual relationships as well as their relationship with their Lord, Lord. Okay, saps that tower, read, read that sentence again, please, everybody, try to understand what he's saying here. Go ahead. This
comprises all that is good for the people in this life and the hereafter in regard to their mutual relationships, as well as their relationship with their Lord Allah Subhana Allah.
Yeah, there's so much to be said about this. So So am Rahim. Allah is mentioning that this is his gem. Yeah. Right. It's a comprehensive AI.
It comprises all that is good for people in this life in the Hereafter, whether that's talking about the relationship that they have between themselves which is what Tywin right? Or the relationship between them and Allah subhanaw taala, which is found at the end of the ayah which is what, what tequila and fear Allah, and always be mindful of Allah subhanaw taala. So, the basis of that relationship that you have with people is time and your relationship with the loss of habitat. It's built on a taco taco toy, this is so
this this is so because every person this is so because every person only deals with the following two situations or obligation. Yeah, so here what he says. He says for in the collab then lie and fat coup minha attain and had attained what had been in wedgie bank.
So he says here a person only deals with the following situation he's saying that a person never stops dealing is closer, right? never stops dealing with or is never released from these two obligations. Okay.
That is your obligation towards the people and the creation and your obligation towards Allah subhana wa tada at every single moment. You have an obligation to a loss of habitat, and you have an obligation to his creation, you don't get away from those. Alright, so now
the footnote that is there says though, have no claim discusses. Secondly, I'm going to talk about that shortly. So number one, he says what is the obligation between him and Allah? And the second one, he says the obligation between him and other people tight and then he starts with what?
duty to other people. All right.
What's more important, the duty towards the people your duty towards Allah?
Ko Bismillah which one is more important? Your duty to Allah to the people?
Okay, okay. So I'll repeat that. There's no doubt that our obligation to Allah Subhana Allah is greater. Right? And in fact, your obligation to the creation is because Allah Subhana Allah meeting an obligation in the first place.
But the reason why the author Evan Williams starts with the duty towards the people
is number one because the eye starts with that the eyes is what? What? One? What's our cooperate? That's between us and the people. So that's your duty to the people that he says what tequila. So then he follows that up with your obligation towards Allah Subhana Allah so he starts with us pans out and started. The other reason is what I haven't mentioned here, which is that
the relationship between you and Allah Subhana Allah is based on the Samaha that is that Allah Subhana, Allah
forgives you of your shortcomings, and allies are jealous about him and her for him will do then Allah Subhana Allah forgives his rights. But when it comes to the rights of the creation, Allah Subhana, Allah has put those rights in the hands of the creation.
So if you owe somebody something,
they have to forgive you, if you don't pay them back. That's something that you will have to deal with in front of Allah Subhana Allah, if you haven't dealt with it in this life, whatever those rights may be, that they deserve from you. So that's why they say hokku ullery bed melbournian Alan Boucher, right? That the the rights of the people the rights that the people have over you, right? are
built on the basis of them is mutia in a bar that everybody wants was theirs. That's the if you don't give it to me here. I wanted the next slide. But that's the that's the basis of that relationship. Where's the kokuka las pantalla magne magne ato nada. Mo, Sam, how are ya?
a person a person's duty towards, okay, we
we've done an hour. And I'm going to stop.
I don't want to stop. But I'm going to stop.
I don't want to stop but I'm going to and if you'll notice, I did not do a an outline for this particular class to say hey, we're going to be such such place this week. And that we Okay, the reason why is because
I personally can't do this book in 10 weeks.
So, but at the same time want to get it done before Ramadan. And there are certain parts of the book, especially towards the end that deal with like,
how you should be reading the Quran. And as most of us are going to try to read more Koran and Ramadan and you know, exert ourselves in that area. I really want to make sure that we are reading that before Ramadan, Nila. So we're going to be the 10 weeks will take us
it will still give us a couple weeks before Ramadan evening later.
So wherever we are at that particular point, what we'll do is just take a few extra days. So maybe we do like a Tuesday and a Wednesday because I do want to finish this before Ramadan be nilay Tada.
We're going to stop there.
What we what I'll do is let's just go to some of these questions, and let's just see where we made it to. So we only made it through
three of the questions. those last three we won't be able to answer, but let's just do it anyway. So, why is the street is called a message from a book
because it was written into boot when was it written? Yes.
Okay, it was written when he was coming back from highs 733
A month after 730 to the 29th of September 1332
time you can do the history converter.
Now, so that it was written on the eighth of Muharram 733.
So if somebody said let me just let's just back up for a second if somebody say it was written on the 29th as of September 13 32, which is what it corresponds to. It means nothing like the eighth of Mahatma why because now you put it in context penalize on his way back from heights he's on his spiritual high. I mean, you know, he Koyama what are the 2 million is like the day that his mother gave birth to him and right so it means something and that's why knowing our calendar is so important. It really is.
It's not just for sentimental reasons, right. It really does have practical, you know, meaning in our lives as Muslim
And for our identity as Muslim
type, and to whom was it written?
So his companions in Damascus, so he sent it forth before him. And they had a male system by the way. They used to use the buddy Dan so they so they they had horses that would take, you know, the the mail from station to to another station, you can read about the history of I mean, the Muslims were phenomenal in establishing this the mail system itself.
What are the major themes of this treaties, you will not be able to leave this building to the house of a lost pet. Okay, so by sleeping right now,
what are the major themes? We got? Six? Yes.
So the two types of cooperation, and we and we did take the Iet and the iOS transgenesis to cooperate and what beruntung what that's the command for and then the forbidden form of cooperation is cooperating in Islam and why? And we're going to learn these terms because there's no way that you can cooperate on bid and taqwa until you know what beer and tequila actually mean. And there's no way you can't cooperate or won't cooperate when it's a minute or one and two, you are clear on what that terminology means. Right? So that's, that's number one. Yes, number two.
So defining beer and tequila. Following that, there are several other definitions that we'll cover, but those are the two main major and important definitions. It three
migration to a lot that's coupled with migration to the Messenger of Allah. So the law Heidi was Selim, how do we perform that migration through contemplating the Quran which is number five, and in order to do all of that, you need the support of good companionship which is the sixth major theme of this treaties. What I say comprises all that is good for people in this life in the hereafter that I sorted to make that a second I have so it's a magnet with talent, or that part portion of the What's our new either taco that he wanted one with taco line the line she did on a con satanic along with handy Chateau nine and to stop recording
