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

Yeah you have a module on mo de una Jetta who is ma'am Paulette and Elsa in one. config moody kakuni. Mata missing can Milwaukee visa hollyfield heaven

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

Salatu was Salam while Alice will be low while early he was happy woman Weller

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

and my bad.

00:00:27--> 00:00:49

So we were on this point here, and Higham is telling us that every deficiency and you're fulfilling your rights to the creation or fulfilling your rights to the creator ultimately goes back to this subtle point. And this subtle point, we said was what?

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

The importance of

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

of being sincere and being selfless, right? So ultimately, then,

00:01:02--> 00:01:14

even those two all deficiencies go back to the knifes when you're not sincere. What is it? How did you enough's enough have to do with that?

00:01:15--> 00:01:28

You're trying to feed your ego when you're not being sincere, somehow, someway, somehow it's feeding your ego. And when you're not fulfilling

00:01:30--> 00:01:37

the rites of the creation, most often it's because you're not feeling like you're getting your due from them.

00:01:38--> 00:02:07

Right? And so you're looking for something for yourself out of that relationship that's not being fulfilled and you're therefore not fulfilling that, that relationship. So ultimately, you're wanting your full rights from people which is your knifes getting in the way of you doing what is pleasing to Allah subhanahu wa Tada. This is why I have no claim, Rahim Allah, He says that the knifes is a huge mountain.

00:02:09--> 00:02:35

This is the parable he gives. It's like a huge mountain that you have to be able to conquer on your journey to a loss of habitat. Basically, the buck stops here. If you can't get past that mountain, your journey to a loss of habitat is cut short. The migration to a law is cut short. And as we're going to talk about in a minute, I do want to make clear though this this is by no means a

00:02:40--> 00:03:25

it is not telling us that we can't demand our rights when somebody is not fulfilling our rights. It's not saying that we're saying that that's not the the foundation of the relationship that you have with other people. In fact, the prophet Isaiah is a Salatu was saying, would teach this oma his rights. Not necessarily because he wanted everybody to fulfill his rights but because in order for us to fulfill our duty to Allah Subhana Allah we have to fulfill the rights of his prophet it is allowed to sin. So the Prophet is allowed to cinema form this NSA you don't want to do. I am the best of all of the children of Ed. But then he said what after what? And I'm not trying to be

00:03:25--> 00:03:43

haughty or arrogant with this, right? This is not something that you don't take it that way. The prophets of light it was some said to some of his campaigns. And it's kakum Linda Well, actually Akuma right. I am the one who has the most taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala of all of you. But what? Why did he say that?

00:03:46--> 00:04:08

Because somebody was trying to do extra, more than what the prophet SAW light it was some of the I am going to, I am going to never marry I'm going to stay up all night and never go to sleep. I'm going to fast every day and never eat right? from saying something. Now that's not the way it's done. I am the one that has the most taqwa. So if you want to be a person of tuck within follow my sooner

00:04:09--> 00:04:53

and that's why in that same process, it sounds so familiar. Auggie, Ban suniti Felisa Mindy, so whoever, and he turns away from my son, right, turns his nose up to my son, then he is not from me, wherever it doesn't desire my son. So, the point here is that sometimes you may have to demand your rights, right? In order to do what's best for society as a whole. Right? Seriously, I mean, I don't want to be, you know, go too far off on a tangent. But sometimes the natural order of relationships is challenged, right, when rights are not given. So role and roles get reversed. And what happens when the roles get reversed when a husband plays the role of the wife the wife plays the role of the

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

husband damaged society like that. What parents played a role in children and the children

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

Boom, act like they can tell your parents what to do what not to do, that damages society as a whole. So at that point, sometimes not for your own knifes. But for the betterment of keeping the order the natural order of Allah spirit, Allah created us, sometimes you have to demand your rights. And that's it. That's a slippery slope. So you got to be very careful. And a lot of times you want to take yourself out of the equation, as we'll see, was talking about here so we're gonna read something from my daddy's Sadie King. So,

00:05:33--> 00:05:35

we're gonna we're going to read from

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

my dad is a Saudi King,

00:05:38--> 00:05:47

which is translated as the ranks of the Divine seekers, right of the Divine seekers by

00:05:48--> 00:06:38

law. This is Volume Two, page 206. He says the ego here when he says the ego is talking about the knifes the ego, therefore is an enormous mountain obstructing the path to a lot. And no traveling can avoid that mountain. It really it's it actually says what what no traveler right can avoid that mountain and must end up with it. I would say end up at it. Yeah, you have to. You can't get around it. You're gonna be at this mountain. That mountain is your ego. It's your knifes. It's in the way. Yeah, the majority of the travelers turn back when they fail to cross its breath and pass its valleys shake. Todd is at the peak of that mountain, dissuading people from climbing it and makes

00:06:38--> 00:06:49

them fear. You know, you start being scared. Like, what if I give up my rights and oh, you know, what if people look at me a certain kind of way, because you don't have any ego. Your selfless

00:06:51--> 00:07:36

isn't it's easier said than done. I say, I need to just give it all up for last pantalla right. So shaytan is going to at the peak of that mountain, dissuading people now don't give up your rights. Don't do this right. Trying to tell you don't climb this mountain. Right. When the difficulty of climbing that mount comes together with the frets and with The Frighteners sitting atop with the ones writing sitting up the front that frightened or meaning shake time frightening you making you scared Yeah. Along with the weakness of the determination and resolve the traveler cutting off and returning are born. Only those that are law protects are protected like the higher one a sense that

00:07:36--> 00:07:49

mountain the more extreme the screams admonitions and fear mongering of the enemy Yani, the closer you get to overcoming your knifes, the more shade time is going to make you feel like this is not what you want to do.

00:07:51--> 00:08:04

But as soon as one reaches its top, all of the fears and apprehensions give way to peace and safety. The rest of the journey looks easy. And the obstacles in the way I do this, I do this

00:08:06--> 00:08:06

arduous

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

Alright, there you go. That's why I

00:08:13--> 00:09:00

have the steep road vanish. That is the hardness of those steep roads vanish. One now begins to see more clearly the wide open past, which is stations and stopovers, signposts and rest stops that serve as the welcome from the old mercy. What separates the servant and his ultimate success and Felicity as happiness is overcome through the power of determination. So listen to what he's saying here because this is very important. He's saying, look, once you get to the top, once you conquer your knifes, which is standing in the way, the rest of the road is easy. The rest of the path is smooth. So there's this big mountain in the way and it just you don't really know what's after that

00:09:00--> 00:09:12

mount. That's the that's the other thing for for a lot of travelers, right? It's like man, I might be able to do that first one, but if there's another one after I'm gonna die in the valley, cuz I'm not I can't go back.

00:09:13--> 00:09:38

But as he's saying here, once you conquer your knifes, the rest of the road is easy. Okay? And what do you need to do that you need firm resolve? You need that determination. Mm hmm. Keep going grip stay the course man grip. Like, panel, I mean, even at translations just major. For me. I think that's it really brings home that concept of what it takes

00:09:39--> 00:09:51

marriage of the soul and steadfastness of the heart. And Grace is ultimately in the hands of the Lord, who grants it to whomsoever He will so ask for it from him.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

And he is the dispenser of abundant grace and he the Prophet it is Salatu was sin and we'll say a law my auntie

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

nwsc tbwa Oh Allah give my knifes it's tough What? We've been talking about tough one knifes a llama Aunty nuptse took Where was that? Kiha antihero. menza care and purify it meaning my knifes You are the best one to purify. Enter Will you have one more? there? You are. It's Wally, and it's molar. And he bought from that same group that protector, The Guardian. Right? So panela I mean, this was from the drive the profit it is what it was today. If he's asking Allah to give his knifes, it's tequila, we all need to ask Allah for them. Right? Because you've had a lot It is one it is overcome, that you will fulfill the rights of a lost parent, and you'll fulfill the rights of his

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

creation. And as the parent agenda.

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

He goes on to say this is the next paragraph.

00:10:52--> 00:10:55

Being blind to people's opinions.

00:10:57--> 00:11:32

So his words mean the words of Al Hardaway or haimo Hola, hola. Tada who ever don't pay him? in Madrid Sadie Keane is explaining this book that was written by huddling so the end he is blind to the creations the appreciation of him are the words of Al Hardaway now no claim is going to explain those words. And he is blind to the creations that this deprecation. Yeah, maybe it is deprecation of him mean that he's too occupied with a law to care about others opinion of him see that is important.

00:11:33--> 00:11:42

That's important, you are too occupied with a loss of talent and pleasing Him to care about other people's opinion.

00:11:43--> 00:11:59

Yeah, even if he is higher than many deficient ones in their rights, preoccupation with that is considered a degradation of the status, a lowering of his level and the redress in his journey.

00:12:02--> 00:12:44

If such a concern assails him without his choice or effort, he must curate by witnessing the favor the fear of deception and lack of his knowledge of the future that awaits him, God help us well, long stand right. So he says check it this this depart I want us to pay attention to if such a concern, a sales him without his choice, or effort. And he called for in headjam it he that he related to the eye in was to you and in other words, you start becoming concerned about other people's opinions and what they think about you or whatever like that, and it's just something that just happens, okay?

00:12:45--> 00:13:05

He says, from you down, we be sure who they mean, then you treat this and you treat them because this is the disease right? So he's talking about medalla and he looking for how to treat it how to cure this illness that you had. Be sure who didn't mean and we talked about this

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

in his letter,

00:13:09--> 00:13:29

which is you witnessed a loss of hand he says witnessing the favorite meaning what witnessing the favor of a lost parents Allah upon you in acts of worship and you being a Muslim in everything that you have witnessing that, that it comes from Allah hands out, it didn't come from any of those people you might be trying to impress or you're worried about what they think

00:13:31--> 00:13:36

and color will hopefully make that is that you fear

00:13:37--> 00:14:13

I'm going to translate this without going too far into detail but you fear a loss plan. You fear his his plan. In other words, William Kudo, m koala, right, those people they plot but alliance with your plots to you fear falling into a trap. That's that's the better way to perhaps render this, okay, falling into a trap. Why then maybe he belongs to you, but you don't know what your end is going to be. So forget all those people forget that. Focus on the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I wanted to mention that even though it's obviously that is not in

00:14:15--> 00:14:50

the recited to bukiet, which we're reading, some of that is just satechi but it's also from the works of Immanuel Kant. It brings a little bit more light to that statement of Abdulkadir Gln. So hopefully, with that, we have some clarity. And, and the reason why I really hope that this clarity is because you need to answer these questions. Oh, we went back. Okay. So, let's go back to the questions. All right, and then inshallah, okay. Miss Miller requested number one, please. Boundary set by law, or sometimes Hillel. And other times.

00:14:51--> 00:14:54

clarify this meaning and how it relates to taqwa. Okay.

00:15:11--> 00:15:21

Okay, so I'll repeat that answer. So if this is the right clarify to clarify this meaning and how it relates to telco so this is directly related to

00:15:23--> 00:15:48

this is directly related to the ads in the Quran where Allah Subhana Allah says these are the limits set by law, these are the boundaries of Allah. So don't go close to them. These are the boundaries of a law so don't cross them. Right. You don't cross them when the boundaries are high land, and you don't go close to them when those who do or those boundaries are from the Haram type. How does this relate to taqwa?

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

Yes, yeah, go ahead.

00:15:58--> 00:16:02

But But what is tough for me, especially when it's in relationship would be it would be

00:16:05--> 00:16:19

revering the law and avoiding his prohibitions, right? So that that avoidance either means that you don't cross the boundaries or you don't go close to the boundaries depending on which one we talk about further second question.

00:16:21--> 00:16:28

Rahim Allah says that deficiency in fulfilling the rights upon you go back to settle issue, what is it?

00:16:31--> 00:16:31

Yeah.

00:16:33--> 00:16:44

selflessness and sincerity, which lead us to the third question, what role does the nest play in obstructing migration to a law?

00:16:47--> 00:17:01

It blocks the path, the knifes as if no claim said jevelin are the moon shack. Right? It is a huge mountain difficult to climb. Right difficult to get by. Type humbling.

00:17:04--> 00:17:23

followship read these questions here. In North Bay in Rahim Allah mentions that Hendra is of two types. What are they discuss briefly the rulings related to hedra from the lands of Kufa to the lands of his land. The Prophet alayhi salaatu westerdam said

00:17:24--> 00:17:35

I seek refuge in You from you. I will be can Minke explain how a true understanding of this statement helps the heart be attached to a law of learned Thai

00:17:36--> 00:17:48

law. Alright, so we've actually made it to chapter two which is where the book begins. If you look at page 1414 ends with what

00:17:49--> 00:17:51

not included in the footnotes, it ends with the

00:17:53--> 00:18:11

with the statement of the Father and Gln except that even though Chi and Rahim Allah then says well, MCC sudo B had the hill mo Kadima, the Chroma bad, and that needs to be added. So, at the end, you want to write this in

00:18:12--> 00:18:40

the objective of mentioning this introduction, the objective of mentioning this introduction. So, he calls the, these first 14 pages an introduction that's important for us to know and in chapter one, the translator did write introduction underneath underneath this chapter one. So, he says, The, the intention or the objective of mentioning this introduction is diploma back is to

00:18:44--> 00:18:48

the objective was this introduction is to mention what is after it

00:18:49--> 00:19:01

is to mention what is after another words, this word now getting into the actual meat of the book, this is what he wants to talk about, which is the hegemon to a loss of power

00:19:03--> 00:19:03

by

00:19:04--> 00:19:05

falesha

00:19:06--> 00:19:56

as the caravan and he sets off, the challenge of law induced into a foreign land, parting with the habits and customs of his family. This allows him to ponder carefully over his situation, seeking that which is most vital in his journey to a law to the extent that it deserves his life's pursuits. The once upon a who were to Allah and who sends His guidance than his own law reveals to him that his most important goal must be migration to Allah and His messenger. This migration is a continual obligation upon every individual and no one is exempt from it. It is the act of a loss upon what the item requires and demands from people tell you

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

so much

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Let's just take this sentence by sentence in Sharla.

00:20:05--> 00:20:14

It's notice here that he's talking about a caravan, right because he wants us to think about actually being on a journey.

00:20:16--> 00:20:19

And he says is the caravan sets off?

00:20:20--> 00:20:23

This traveler, the one who is traveling

00:20:24--> 00:20:26

enters into a foreign land

00:20:27--> 00:20:32

parting with the habits and customs of his homeland.

00:20:34--> 00:20:50

Now we consider this the Prophet it is a delight to sit in. told him no model the law of China No, or the law of China. No man can fit dunya Okay, Anika very one. Oh, Abu civilian.

00:20:52--> 00:20:54

Told him in Oman be in this life.

00:20:55--> 00:20:57

As if you are a what?

00:20:58--> 00:21:13

undercover you as if you were a stranger, or Abu Sabir, whether there may be somebody who's passing by a computer via just passing through. What's the difference between a stranger and a computer?

00:21:18--> 00:21:20

Well, yeah.

00:21:24--> 00:21:45

Right. A stranger is not from the land. Anybody been here for a while? Right? He's this he's a stranger to that place that people don't know how many doesn't know the people. A commuter is even quick. commuters just stop and fuel up, get some coffee and get back on the road. Right. A lot of people Sabine just keep it moving. So

00:21:46--> 00:21:54

this is the the advice of the prophet Isaiah salatu salam. And that's because the homeland of Benny Adam is where?

00:21:56--> 00:21:57

Jen.

00:21:58--> 00:22:01

So you're actually in this world already.

00:22:02--> 00:22:07

This is really not home for the one who seeks a double arrow.

00:22:09--> 00:22:49

And so his entire existence here is as a stranger or somebody who's just commuting through this allows him to ponder carefully over his situation, seeking that which is most vital in his journey to a law, to the extent that it deserves his life's pursuance. In other words, when you actually think about the transient nature of this world, that there is no permanence here, that you have a different home that you are actually trying to get back to. The only things you need here are the things that are important for you to get back to where you need to get back to.

00:22:51--> 00:23:04

You understand, so it, it allows you to conceive of the dunya and this life very differently from a person who is not expecting anything good in the hereafter.

00:23:05--> 00:23:21

So their thing is, you only live once. And the way that they approached this life is very different from the person who is actually seeking something in the next life from a loss paradigm and wants to go home, because this is not home.

00:23:23--> 00:23:40

He then goes on to say Mahima Hola, the one Daniella and whose hand is guidance reveals to him inspires him that this that his most important goal must be the migration to Allah and His Messenger it is Salatu was sent in.

00:23:41--> 00:23:42

And this migration

00:23:43--> 00:24:06

is a continual obligation. He says that it is an obligation upon every individual at all times. No one is exempt from it. It is the act that allows you to add demands and requires from people and this is what he's going to go into. So he's just setting the stage here to let you know you have the law that you are a traveler

00:24:08--> 00:24:18

and that this dunya is not home and that you're trying to get home and that in order to do that, there are certain things that you need to do and this is your obligation.

00:24:20--> 00:24:23

Now for the migration is of two types.

00:24:25--> 00:24:44

The first is the physical migration of the body from one land to another. The rulings regarding this type of migration are well known and it is not our intention to discuss them here okay. So the first type migration is to go from one place to another place, whether that is from the land of copper,

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

to the land of Islam, or whether it is from the land of bitter to the land of sin, or whether it is from the land where laws disobeyed to the Land of Fire, where is where he is obeyed, okay, or where whether it's from a land that is

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

There is unstable to the land that is secure, where there's there's security and stability. I mean, all of that is actually considered to be

00:25:09--> 00:25:15

okay, but that's from one place to another place. This he says about him or her law.

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

These

00:25:19--> 00:25:30

rulings are well known, they covered in the books of flipping keytab with jihad, okay. Now, the second type is the migration of the heart to a loss

00:25:31--> 00:25:32

and His Messenger.

00:25:34--> 00:25:40

This is what we are concerned with, because it is the only true

00:25:41--> 00:26:10

it is the foundation that must precede the physical, the physical is only an outcome of the hearts, right, the physical hegira that is from one land to another land is based on the nature of the heart. So, if the if you find a person finds that they are not able to connect to a loss of hematology, they're not able to practice the deen of Islam in a certain place, then their heart is going to take them somewhere else.

00:26:12--> 00:26:35

Clear. So that's the physical hegira follows the heart. And the reality is, and this why even will claim Subhana Allah and this is from the tofu COVID lost hands out of him that he's focusing on this healer is because this his you know, his obligation on every single Muslim was the physical hegira may never be an obligation on some Muslims depending on where they are.

00:26:37--> 00:26:53

And for many other Muslims is not going to be an obligation. Right? So but this particular vision of the hatred of the heart is an obligation, it is an obligation on every single Muslim. That being said, and because we live where we live,

00:26:55--> 00:27:22

I'll briefly just go over what the scholars have mentioned, about hegira of the body, physical, digital, and is it permissible for a Muslim to live in the lands that are not the lands of Islam. And even before we get to that point, not only because what we're going to be talking about is digital from the land of cover to the land of Islam.

00:27:23--> 00:27:35

And where that may have been clearly defined that binary, you know, was was clear in the past, that these lands are the lands of Islam, these lands are the lands of fault or the lands of Kufa

00:27:36--> 00:27:56

that may not be so clearly defined after the falling of the left and so forth. So, what actually defines a Muslim land? Is it that the ruler is a Muslim, even if the majority of the population are not? Right, does it? And does that ruler? Are the rules that are established in that land? Are they the rules of Islam or not?

00:27:57--> 00:28:10

Is the majority is do we judge that a land is the land of Assam because the majority of the people in that land are Muslims, right? Even though the rule is may not be Muslim, because this is the case in several

00:28:11--> 00:28:13

African nations, for example,

00:28:14--> 00:28:29

only the point is even that definition is would take time to unpack when I'm not going so yeah, the intention here is not to go and turn this into a fifth lesson, but I think it's important to look at some of this.

00:28:30--> 00:28:38

It will Kodama Rahim Allah tada in alimony and many of the scholars before him have

00:28:39--> 00:29:01

basically broken down his EU law and to where they say that the people as it relates to his law are have three categories. All right. So the question is when is his children obligatory? When is his EU law not required? When is hidden not encouraged? Okay, clear. Okay. So

00:29:03--> 00:29:05

even Kodama and Al Madani?

00:29:06--> 00:29:11

The 13th volume, I don't remember which page this is, or maybe like a page 150

00:29:12--> 00:29:59

he says about haimo Hola, hosanna. He says, Vanessa agility, and as an entity that will be I'm not going to go through each and every point says when it comes to age alone, people are three different categories. He said men techy boy LA, I need the first category of those people who have to make $1 and it is an obligation for them to leave the land of copper and go to the land of the Muslims. Well, who am I Yup, de la la Han, while a young Kenyan who is howdini and this is the person who has the ability to make a journal and he cannot openly practice his religion in the land that he's in. So if a person cannot openly practice their religion, or they're being persecuted or so forth for

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

their Deen,

00:30:00--> 00:30:36

And they have the ability to make a journal then it is an obligation for them to make a journal. Okay? The proof of this is the statement of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Medina to offer Hmong melodica to Vani me and forcing him call him and confirm call to condemn still Davina fill out to the end of the day with the angels take the souls of those who were wrong in themselves the angels say in what state were you, but what's the key here they were doing what wronging themselves by not implementing their Deen by not practicing they they they say we were weak and oppressed in the in the lane

00:30:37--> 00:30:57

called LMP to come out alive as he attempted to add eurovia was not a lot of hands on earth spaces and vast so that you could make a hedge on that you can migrate then. Then in other words, you don't have an excuse to say I was just wrong and myself because you know I was oppressed in the land. These shall have their refuge in hell what an evil and to their job.

00:30:58--> 00:31:13

Zane. So this as he says, What had that ye doing [???] he did. And he This is a great threat, like a very harsh threat from Allah Subhana who was

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

the second the second? Okay.

00:31:18--> 00:31:50

So So he goes on to say, well he's you know, to the Aurora. And he says basically what he's saying here is that establishing your deen is watching and practicing your deen is watching what matter it symbolizes a levy forward. And whatever you cannot fulfill an obligation with by other than it then that also becomes what. So the only way for you to practice your deen is to make a jeweler then digital becomes an obligation to fulfill that, like the second category are those who are not required to make his law.

00:31:52--> 00:32:32

Any says these are the people who do not have the ability either because they're sick, or because they're forced to stay or because they're weak. And then he mentions like women and children and older people and so forth. So he says that these people are not required to make the hegira also state, you know referring to the statement of the loss of habitat in them will start at feanor. I mean it generally when they say well then that is the tiona helidon what I have to do in Isabella folder. So lo and Yahoo, I know McCann alone for rahima. So basically, and he states that I will also have data excuses and makes an exception of those men, women and so forth who do not have the

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

ability to make the digital Gee, there's the third category.

00:32:40--> 00:32:53

And this third category are those who call her or him all I'm just looking for a snack. What's that? meant to stab? Bula who will add Teddy who is a woman you

00:32:54--> 00:33:33

know, it's American woman is Harley Dini well iqama TV Darrell Cofer for two step boo Lahu the atomic Kingdom in Jihad him with a theater and Muslim Mina woman let's see him was a holla Sunita Thiele Kufa holla at him at noon curry baina home while I Teddy boy Ed Liam Kenny comedy why'd you be Dean even doing an angel cannon I best Well, I'm going to be delighted with senemo came in the Mecca. Nice name he he 11. So basically, this third category are those who he Jolla is encouraged for them. It's encouraged for them to leave the lands of cocoa to go to the land of Islam.

00:33:36--> 00:34:27

He says, but it is not an obligation for them. And these are the people who have the ability to make hmm but they also have the ability to openly practice their religion. I'm going to talk about what that means inshallah so openly it's hardly Dini to openly practice their religion where they are. Okay. So he says, but for this person, it is recommended for them to make his law. He says Leah Tomek can mean jihadi him Mattila muslimeen. And that's so that he can increase the number of the Muslims and prepare for jihad against the non Muslims were to hulless min tech theater in Kufa and so that he is not increasing the numbers of the kuffaar even if it's just by census populations and

00:34:27--> 00:35:00

so forth, right, and mixing with them and seeing the evil that they do, and seeing the evil that they do because that seeing the evil that is done around you has an effect on you. At the very least it desensitizes you to some of the evil that is being done. He says but this person is not an obligation for them to make a judgement because he can still practice his Deen without making the hit you know. And the the uncle of the prophet Isaiah Salatu was Salam Li best and many others besides a lot best they never made. They did not make the history but they stayed in Mecca, even when the Prophet I

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Salatu was Sunday, and the Muslims made his lawn.

00:35:05--> 00:35:08

There's a lot that can be said

00:35:09--> 00:35:50

about this. And again, perhaps they should be just a separate lecture on and hey john, in and of itself, because the amount of Chevy rahimullah Chad and the Chevy here in general, they and several other scholars, they also add on to this, these three rulings. This is pretty standard amongst the fuqaha across the board and hanafy. And they say there's no age limit at all, because the problem is something that has a bad effect. And there is no digital after the fact, that's a different understanding, the majority of the scholars have the Hadith. I don't want to go too far into that. But anyway, these there are other scholars who say that there are circumstances where it's actually

00:35:50--> 00:36:05

Mr. headbutt, and to stay in the land of Kufa and for the Muslims that are there. And that is when they have the ability to not only establish the deen but to teach the deen and to call others to the deen of Islam.

00:36:06--> 00:36:51

And some of them say, and this this is strong this opinion, that if the Muslims Now again, this is not something that we can conceptualize in the current nation states, the way that things are set up, and obviously the books that have many of them were written way before we had this concept of nation state and so forth. But they said that if the Muslims in a land of the Kufa are able to have their own piece of land, even if it's within the broader Land of the Kufa, William Kino human emptiness, meaning that they have the ability to protect the land, meaning that the basically it becomes their spot, right? And the the ruling powers for example, that rule the rest of the land,

00:36:51--> 00:37:03

don't can't really penetrate them. That's that's kind of what empty Nat means. You're keen on Tina, what's your by lay him on, because they said they have to stay there. Because that has become a land of Islam,

00:37:04--> 00:37:50

even if it's just a little part is become a land of Islam. And if they leave, then it will return back to being the land of COVID with adekola Jews is that that's not permissible. Anyway, there's other scenarios without going too far into it. If you could read the first paragraph from this festival from MGR, which is the American Muslim jurists Association, Amgen asserts in this regard, that the known for a Muslim is to be sad within the lens of Islam, in order to protect his religious commitment and live in support of the believers. It is impermissible for him to lead these lands, except for good intention, such as seeking knowledge, earning a living, pursuing religious freedom

00:37:50--> 00:38:37

and the like, while keeping the intention to return whenever the circumstances permit that. As for the Muslims, indigenous to these non Islamic lands, they should seek to remain in these lands while exhibiting whatever they can of their Islam and undoing the hardships that befall them, since they represent the fertile seeds most capable of establishing Islam in such a society. And this is an interesting point in it, it does correspond with much of what the scholars of the past have said I'm only mentioned this because these are American Muslim. You know, the American Muslim jurists Association, some of them are quite reputable. I mean, in terms of you know, the scholarship what

00:38:37--> 00:38:37

have they learned?

00:38:38--> 00:39:23

To further that point? Right, which is, well, when is it okay, I need to stay in these lands or when is it? When might it even be better? Look at this hadith of Abu Sulayman Malik Ibn Al Hadith Rahim Allah Tada. Now, notice the dis translations it says, narrated Abu Sulayman and Malik, even Hawaii with its Episode A man is his Konya, Malaga been in Hawaii with Rahim Allah is Allah tala and who is his name. So it's not two different people. He said, What follows here? We came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we were a few. We were a few young men of approximately equal age, and stayed with him for 20 nights. time we came to the Prophet right from where?

00:39:25--> 00:39:26

Hmm,

00:39:27--> 00:39:47

okay, play him. But the reason why the scholars use this to indicate the permissibility of remaining in your land, especially if you have the ability to teach is because the lands of Islam at that time were Medina, and then Mecca, and the rest of the land was not considered to be the land of Islam at that point.

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

Then he thought that we were anxious for our families. And he asked us whom we had left behind to look after our families. And we told him he was

00:40:00--> 00:40:41

hardened and merciful. So he said, returned to your families and teach them religious knowledge in order for them to do good deeds, and offer your prayers in the way you saw me offering my prayers. And when the state of time for the prayer becomes due, then one of you should pronounce its call that is the that and the eldest of you should lead you into the elders or you should lead to a prayer because they were pretty much equal in knowledge. They came to the prophet Isaiah salatu salam at the same time and their knowledge was similar. So it goes on to the age at that point. The The point here is that he sent them back to to their land. Okay, even though the land of digital was

00:40:41--> 00:40:51

Medina, again, I mean, there's a whole lot this is a sample hardy right? There's a whole lot that can be said about this particular topic. And these are Heidi permission not to make a little public.

00:40:56--> 00:40:57

Yeah, now

00:40:59--> 00:41:03

narrated that event when asked the last messenger so long, and it was tell him about

00:41:05--> 00:41:08

the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam said, Do you talk about

00:41:09--> 00:41:31

the effect of hatred is very difficult. But if you've got camels, the Bettman said yes. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, do you pay this guy? The President said yes. The prophet SAW is that so long, as he was telling me said, go on doing good deeds across the villages, for sure the law will not leave any of your deeds.

00:41:33--> 00:41:41

And there's longer narrations as Heidi was assignable, Harney and Muslim. The point is that the province of Largo seldom gave him the permission not to make his

00:41:44--> 00:41:47

play that will be further explained in this very

00:41:48--> 00:41:59

long Hadith which is a Muslim, the point of the Hadith and it's even cut off here. Further, you can start reading from began, it has been ported to suit a man

00:42:00--> 00:42:31

through his father, that when the Messenger of Allah so long as he was appointed anyone, as leader of an army or detachment, he would especially export him, to fear a law and to be good to his to the Muslims who are with him. He would say, fight in the name of the law, and in the way of the law, fight against those who disbelieve in the law. Make a holy one. Yeah. Make make a holy war. This is a I'm sorry. That's just not the way we would translate yet.

00:42:33--> 00:43:11

Do not embrace the embezzle the spoils. Do not break your pledge. And do not mutilate the dead bodies. Do not kill the children. When you meet your enemies who are polytheist invite them to three courses of action Subhanallah I mean, even through this translation, which obviously has some some issues, you start to see the instructions of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam, even at even the humanity in the humaneness, if you will, at the time of war, right. And this is Annie Subhana limy, without

00:43:12--> 00:43:51

a lot of people who claim to I'm saying a lot of Muslims, who get caught up in the rhetoric, and we're going to do jihad, and we're going to this place in that place, have no fear of what they're doing with la Mustang. And this there's a, there's a filter to all of this. It's everything we do. And just like you can't just stand up and pray without making will do and you can't just make will do without knowing how to make will do. jihad is not fighting. No, it's it's much more than that. And the intention behind it and how it's supposed to be done has to and it has to be for lots of hands on and it has to be according to the son of the Prophet it is science was today, just going

00:43:51--> 00:43:54

out and terrorizing people and causing havoc that's not yet.

00:43:55--> 00:44:44

They respond to any one of these. You also accept it, and withhold yourself from doing them any harm pay pay attention to this part here. He says invite them to accept Islam now. Invite them to accept Islam. If they respond to you accept it, accept it from them, and desist from fighting against them, then invite them to migrate from their lands to the land of the mahadji team and inform them that if they do so, they shall have all the privileges and obligations of the majority if they refuse to migrate. Uh huh. If they refuse to make a law, then what? Tell them that they will have the status of Bedouin Muslims and will be subjected to the commands of the law like other Muslims, but they

00:44:44--> 00:44:59

will not get any share from the spoils of war of the fact. Or the fate. Yes, conflict. Yeah, except, except when they actually fight with the Muslims against the disbelievers fight started. The whole point is that the prophecy center

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

has given them a course if they refuse to make a law and he's not making it an obligation as is clear from this, how do you then there are many, many I mean, like I said that the whole point is that when we study these topics is very important that we gather the evidence not we but that we look at the evidence that the good scholars have already done this work that the problem is sometimes people just take one thing and call us they zoom in on it and that's what it is, is either you don't have to do it or you do have to do there's no kind of tough seal or detail that's given and this is ultimately only leads to a misunderstanding of what is intended by or what is intended

00:45:42--> 00:45:53

from us to do. I do will comment on this last one inshallah. This last Hadeeth I had it on living among the mushrikeen Yeah. narrowly.

00:45:55--> 00:46:07

radiola allow wine from Jr, even Apple law. radiolab wine, is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent a military expedition to happen at

00:46:08--> 00:46:17

a time. Yeah. Okay. So some people live in their safety by push by prostrating, but they were met quickly and killed.

00:46:19--> 00:46:47

News of this meets the Prophet solo and he was settled upon upon which he commanded that they'd be given half of the blood money. And he said, I am free. I'm innocent. I'm free from every Muslim that lives among the idolaters the machete King, yeah. They said O Messenger of Allah. How is that? He said, they should not see each other's campfire.

00:46:50--> 00:46:50

So what do we do?

00:46:52--> 00:46:59

This, what do you understand from that? How do I actually want to talk about this? We understand from this how do you

00:47:05--> 00:47:09

separate yourself from the people who disguised interleague

00:47:10--> 00:47:11

play

00:47:13--> 00:47:23

when your life is in danger, and you're living among idolaters you should be when your life is in danger, and you live in amongst they were killed when they were growing frustration. Okay.

00:47:25--> 00:47:26

Anybody else?

00:47:29--> 00:47:31

Now, really, like we've been talking about this.

00:47:32--> 00:47:35

There should be there should be some sort of distance between

00:47:36--> 00:47:42

some sort of distance between you and them. Okay, so, first thing, first question.

00:47:46--> 00:47:47

What's the first question?

00:47:51--> 00:47:58

Is this a hazard? That's where we need to start. Before we start trying to explain this Hadeeth

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

The first thing is SB two lobsterman Cush and he makes sure you got a chair that you can sit down on it

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

sorry

00:48:11--> 00:48:16

like this? Yes, there's one without that there's one that mentions without the blood money.

00:48:18--> 00:48:43

This Hadeeth according to elbow hearty at tirmidhi adulto put me daddy me and other early scholars are Hades is howdy this motorcycle, motorcycle means it doesn't actually have the Sahabi wasn't mentioned. So as mentioned when the Tabby to the Prophet it is Salatu was sin. Well, more sermon Oksana dive, and it's it's a it's a type of weak Hadith.

00:48:44--> 00:49:15

I have other scholars schakel Benny Rahim Allah, He says that is Sahih. And there are some other scholars have had he said that Asahi. Now, once we determine if we need to say that this had either sorry, we just throw all those other heddy the way we just so then the question then is what? How have the scholars understood, now that we take this Heidi, and this becomes the only focus and you you know, go around to

00:49:16--> 00:49:27

different massages and a really warm and cuddly and a Muslim and you should be nearby honey and so far all of you and is waiting for you to make a jeweler everybody has to go

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

by

00:49:34--> 00:49:46

now what I'm saying is and I'm not saying that it's something I look for some people, some people it may it may be that he has an obligation for them. No, no doubt about

00:49:48--> 00:49:58

and I mean that that's a lot of money that but the end for many people is better for them than vacation. For many people. That's going to be the case.

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

Your call

00:50:00--> 00:50:16

Ma'am a Chevy Rahim Allah tada and his book alone. Chevy has a famous book alone. He says don't let sooner to pursue realize that alojado suddenly at the end, he allottee Adam and a Taka in Hua

00:50:18--> 00:50:45

butina and de Belen in the DS level usually will be at the end also like some alojar do some editing and ecoman be Mecca and up we'll be heading back to Islami him minimal at best when I'm done with olive oil on the low end. It'll be a half fitna. So he never said to him Oh love died in 2004 2000 to 204 and he was the shape of mm

00:50:46--> 00:51:34

hmm my whole life. He said that the Sunnah of the Prophet it is Salatu was set in indicates that the hegemony is an obligation for those who can make it the debt obligation is only upon those who fear fitna in the ad. That's the bottom line. He says because the Prophet is allowed to sit him allowed some of his companions to stay in Mecca after they accepted Islam from them was his uncle, bass and others pie so what do we do with this hadith Hadith al Bara color have the mohajir and Cody salado sentiment a video and Cody Muslim in your team obeying the law of the hunting crew follow other than mushrikeen hollow ahead and my Moodle nada Magnum yet midnight Minaya D he says and this is to be

00:51:34--> 00:51:46

understood in light of those who fear for their religion. Yeah, Neelam yet manana Dini he does not have security and his deep. And we could go on and on and on not.

00:51:52--> 00:52:16

Excellent. So the question is, what does it mean to establish the religion? So historically, historically, the scholars have not talked about that in a lot of detail, except that they talk about the shy if meaning that you can openly pray, you can openly fast in the month of Ramadan, you have permission to make hydrogen so on and so forth. Right.

00:52:17--> 00:52:20

Other scholars have mentioned and this is a very important point.

00:52:22--> 00:52:37

Even though I haven't found any early scholars have talked about this particular point. But Chinese scholars of the last two 300 years have mentioned this, that it Harvard Dean does not stop at simply

00:52:39--> 00:52:55

praying, or being able to pray in the masjid and do Juma and so forth. But that is hard. It D means that you have the ability in that land, to openly declare that Islam is the truth, and every other way of life is false.

00:52:56--> 00:52:58

I think this is important.

00:52:59--> 00:53:04

And the reason why this is an important point, even though again, I mean, there's,

00:53:05--> 00:53:34

it's, it gets it gets complicated because Shankman bears on him a lot China, when he was asked about that point, he said, he said, allow your startup fee authority is not a condition, and to be able to say and to follow and muslimeen and that type of thing. But But what what are we talking about here, we're talking about recognizing that Islam is the way not a way.

00:53:36--> 00:53:51

And a lot of times what happens is when Muslims live amongst the non Muslims, is that we adopt that kind of that pluralism that makes it just seem like it's okay, whatever way you do it, right.

00:53:52--> 00:54:14

So you have your way, and you can go the agenda, whatever you're worshiping, and I'm doing it my way, and I'm going to Agenda the way the way I do it. And that concept that that superiority, recognizing that Islam is superior, right? is very important. It's very important for the preservation of identity.

00:54:15--> 00:54:38

It does not mean that you walk around with an air of superiority or arrogance or something like that, because or that every Muslim, I mean, everybody that claims that they are Muslim, because they are hypocrites. Everybody claims that there must be better than everybody that you know follows a different way but that the way itself that is Islam is superior.

00:54:39--> 00:54:59

And it's the only way that is accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so, this this part is part of his Hata Deen and according to according to many of the latter scholars, especially down in India. Also, I think it's important to note when it comes to

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

And he the permissibility

00:55:05--> 00:55:10

of residing in the land of non Muslims.

00:55:12--> 00:55:18

This is the old saying when when you have the ability to make it part of your religion

00:55:19--> 00:55:39

that that is the position of the scholars almost across the board. I know that there are some contemporary scholars that say otherwise the even with the concept of being able to, you know openly declare your deen but in terms of the scholars of the past, I need almost all of them have mentioned this condition that if you can

00:55:40--> 00:55:52

make it harder to do now, and contemporary scholars segment Shackleton, Aziz bin bash, Hamza Saleh, everything meaning like the majority of the present day scholars hold the same opinion, but

00:55:54--> 00:55:59

they also add something that's very important, which is, and this is clear, honestly,

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

if you're going to live in this land, you definitely need two things.

00:56:05--> 00:56:15

In Yemen that Mina Chabot hats with Dini, I'm not going to show it bottom line, you have to have enough knowledge to protect you from from shubo act.

00:56:17--> 00:56:30

And that that's going to come left and right. And you have to have enough Dean to protect you from from the from the shadow wet me from from those desires and, and the things that come at you from that angle.

00:56:31--> 00:56:45

And again, alongside the shallow end, we can do a separate talk about digital one day right now we're talking about the hinge of the heart. And that's an obligation upon everybody with no if ands or buts no

00:56:47--> 00:56:49

Photoshop, Corona also right.

00:56:51--> 00:57:26

Here requires from end to from what are you leading to what are you Please clear so, so right now we're going to go in the author is going to clarify or go into a bit more depth about what it means to make higit on to Allah in every genre requires a From and To you are fleeing from something to something you are migrating from something to something now

00:57:28--> 00:57:42

the headdress of a migrators art requires migrating from one state to another. The heart must migrate from loving others to loving a law of love. Okay, does this mean you can't love your mom

00:57:49--> 00:57:50

means you can't love your wife.

00:57:51--> 00:57:53

She can't love you.

00:57:54--> 00:57:55

So what does that mean?

00:57:57--> 00:58:02

Okay, so you can't love them the same way you love Allah type. Let's go a little further

00:58:05--> 00:58:10

that you that you love a lot more than you love everything else that that is for sure.

00:58:11--> 00:58:25

See, the young the youngest student man always always knocks it out the park Mashallah right. So that you love for a loss of hemorrhoids, Allah takes precedence meaning when there is a conflict of interest, right.

00:58:26--> 00:58:29

So that this person that you love

00:58:30--> 00:58:33

is requesting you to do something that Allah does not love.

00:58:35--> 00:58:37

Then what then what gets precedence?

00:58:38--> 00:58:47

Your love for lost hands either right here has to be has to be given the upper hand right?

00:58:49--> 00:59:30

Or you have to prefer that over anything else now. It says, from loving others to loving Allah alone, there is a type of love that is only for lost parents. And that is the love that is for the divine. It's the unconditional love, everything else that you love you love for the sake of Allah. Even our love for the Prophet it is slightly sin is for the sake of a lost parents data because he was the one that was most, he was the closest to a loss of habitat. And Eliza Magellan has put natural love in us right for some of his creations. So we have a natural love for our parents and natural love for our children. These are the ones that have the most rights over us. And the love

00:59:30--> 00:59:55

that you have for them makes it easier for you to fulfill their rights. This is from the Hickman philosophy hands out that he's put that but that's a natural love. Very different from the love that you have for the creator which is also an eight. By the way, the love that we had for a long time. But we love Allah because of who he is and because of what he does. So Pena who attire

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

falesha it must migrate according

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

servitude to others to according to a low

01:00:05--> 01:00:43

Buddha and a mineral Buddha tea light Illa honey from worshipping other than a lot. So worshiping the law alone, it must migrate from theory others to fearing law alone. And again, this is qualifying, right? Can you fear a lion? Like if it runs out of the zoo? You should. That that's the type of fear that saves your life. Right? So there's there's a fear that a lost pants add up puts in us that is natural and it's a protection. Right. But then there's fear that is unwarranted.

01:00:45--> 01:01:04

Certain phobias, for example, they are unwarranted like they the person has to work on overcoming that because that, again, should be for a loss of habitat. Oh, no, no, it must migrate from having from having entertained in others, to having hope in a law alone.

01:01:06--> 01:01:37

It must migrate from relying on others to rely on a law that that's typical here he's talking about. It must migrate from asking imploring others to asking in flooring law alone. Yeah, the prophet is allowed to sit him like he told him and I bet he does enter first llf, you ask ask Allah. Wait, this time toughest time biller, and if you seek help, and seek help from Allah alone, and this is something he's teaching to a very young,

01:01:38--> 01:02:15

young man, and he and I'm best at that point, he called him a lamb which is used for the boys, the boys that hadn't reached the age of puberty, right. But still somehow a lot of profit ideas. And it was Sam was talking to him in a way that's very, I mean, that we as adults benefit tremendously from right. And that that should show us not to underestimate the ability of children to understand and to be held accountable. You know, unfortunately, a lot of people sadly, just you know, that they still kids, he's 25 years old, does that mean he's still a kid? Just 20 years old, still a kid?

01:02:16--> 01:02:33

I mean, for how long do you do you? Do you not hold them accountable? And then and what happens? No, this is disservice again to to the oma as a whole. Because then the number just gets later and later. Another generation goes by he's only 30.

01:02:34--> 01:02:36

He's not 40 years old, yet.

01:02:37--> 01:02:46

He's only 30. What does that mean? And that? No, we got to teach, teach our boys to be men a lot earlier.

01:02:48--> 01:03:06

It must migrate from surrendering and submitting to others to surrendering and submitting to Allah alone. This is precisely the meaning of fleeing into law. As the last panel with the island said, the third rule is no law.

01:03:08--> 01:03:08

Leaving

01:03:12--> 01:03:16

Japan alone my hours up. Well, I'm Stein, I'm

01:03:18--> 01:03:25

fine. I'll finish that last part. right this is indeed true. tawheed requires freeing from Allah

01:03:26--> 01:04:06

Going a little bit deeper into what it means to migrate to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Han at the lower in the

01:04:07--> 01:04:09
