Pacino's co chair Medina.
Yeah, they love
Allah, Shadow Allah. Allahu la sharika our shadow Mohammed and I bought a solo solo while he won and he was talking your sentiments to Steven casilando Yama Dean, and my bad Today Tonight inshallah is the
second lesson of shaping the simultaneous LRP the word Sophia and we're going to go over the same questions that we have from last week because many of them were not actually answered last week and we have to go through some introductory matters before we get into the meat of the book because once the book starts it said it goes at a very fast pace there is no explanation it's just if the if the if then Howdy. And so right now we're trying to get the principles that we need to understand before we actually go into the book and that's why we're going to take our time with this beginning part and shallow data. So with the law
we do need to we need to do
get your get your juices flowing, okay.
So this we actually will get done tonight between the lines, but
you may be able to answer right now. followship Why is the study of al Qaeda important this is the focus of tonight's lesson in the United charter we really need to drill down on why we're doing all of this in fact, it's time to study it that in the first place Why is this book called al al Qaeda al wasa Thea when and why did entertain me rocky Milan write it okay why is this book called lappi the l was of the year who can answer that right now
haha okay good the people of Walsall to find the middle middle path that's 58 and a half Michigan
alright go back because I want to I want to take Can I take this back for a second? Okay. Notice is not a lackey that was of the year it's a it's a lackey that l was it a year? Ah
okay, go ahead Google. Somebody else wanted to follow up
because the the person who asked him to write the book was a judge from a place called Watson by Where's Watson
it's in Iran. Anybody know why it was called Watson?
Because it was in the middle so they
sweet and bustling Moscow time cool for now. Alright, so Okay, so that's why it's called so any ascription to something okay. The allottee that is is a I mean, it's it's the Arabic word I wasn't finding that right. So it's a lack either. Now I want to make it I'm going to make an inscription to a lakita right. So I'm going to say for example, if it was actually the written for people in Philadelphia, you would call it What?
So for whilst it is a lackey that Ella Sophia, right, and that's why there are other athletes that are named after
Yanni lands. So shaker Sam, for example, as another athlete is called an athlete at TED Maria, right, because it was written for someone from a request from Ted Morton, which is Palmyra, not pahlmeyer, New Jersey, but Paul Meyer and Shane pahlmeyer in Crete. So this is the last creed now.
tell you when and why the shake was damn right at When did he write it?
No, he died at 728 so he definitely didn't write it. 736 90 he wrote he wrote in 698 seven years before he was taken to trial which was a 705 All right, so he wrote in 698. And why did he write it because there was a request from the coffee of last name or the dean a Chevy, which we're going to cover a little bit more today type fellowship
mentioned three things that makes this book important right? Okay. So we'll, we'll get to that inshallah. Hold on. What scrutiny has this book of Crete undergone, that books of similar subject matter have not
You can answer this question
what scrutiny has this book going undergoing that books have other similar subject matter have not yet.
Right? It was it became the subject of, of the trial. And I was shaking this thing was put on trial, it became that subject and he defended it very well. That's very rare for other books to have undergone that kind of scrutiny and made it out. And he made it out. Shining, Mashallah know, what are two broad categories of creed books? Okay. Now, what seemingly unrelated topic does in new Tammy rockmelon deal with an otherwise Thea that most other books of creed do not address? And what is that? Because we did cover that moral conduct character and so forth? Okay. And what is the significance of that topic? Why is it even included?
kind of reflect.
Right, because it's as if shake was, was saying that if you have this app, either that you've studied now or that you've read from the beginning of this book, up until that point at the end of the book, if you truly believe those things, then it should reflect in and how you carry yourself.
So again, our book is in the middle, likely the last year, all right, is the book that you should have, it'll make it easier for you to follow. If you have any of those books that are surrounding it, you'll still be able to follow those are explanations. So in the top left hand corner, that's the shadow sheet solid Hosanna Allah under that is the explanation of shaken provides these members of parliament to lie on the right hand side is the explanation of Sheikh Mohammed career. Havas, which which was the first
explanation that was translated into the English language. And it is a it is a good explanation of anokhi diversity within English is a little bit difficult.
And then the last one down on the right hand side,
which we will be using from time to time and sha Allah is Sheikh Mohammed massada. Everything mizrahim Allah is explanation of a lackey that wants to play.
So these are the subjects that we wanted to deal with from last week. Some of these we have not been able to cover just yet. But we did go through a brief bio of shape and assignment Take me, as well as the title of the book, the date of authorship, we'll deal in shallow tonight, we'll cover some of the importance of the book.
We'll continue with the debate that took place concerning an IP that was clear. Again, a lackey that was clear was not the reason why he was taken to trial. But it became the subject of debate when he switched focus to an IP that was it because he says no point of me just was standing up here talking, and then somebody's gonna say he's trying to wiggle his way out of it. Let's go get the written book, right. And so that's how it became the subject of the trial, we need to cover some introductory matters on it that we've laid out. So we're going to go back to where we left off. Number 14 and shallow ties here. So it's not it's not actually in the book. You're just gonna have
to follow from here. And we're talking about the importance of octane and shell number 14. Oh, yeah, that was that was standard Sugar Hill cream. We're reading from this portion on a lakita was written by our sheet, it will take me right and so this is this is a translation of the manava. Lackey that was here, which is the trial that was taking place about last year. This is Sherman Jackson's translation now, number 14, I said to them, the reason this work was written was that one of the qualities from a district in while slit a man named radio, the radio Dean, as was at a Shafi came to us on his way to the pilgrimage, he being a man of righteousness and religion. And he complained
about the preponderance of ignorance and injustice among his people, okay, his complaint was what? ignorance and, and injustice, okay, and the effacement of religion and knowledge from their land, and those areas now under the Mongols, he asked me to write a creed for him, that could serve as a pillar for him and his family, right. So that was the reason why he wrote it. And this is important because as many of the scholars point out, writing in a vacuum does not help anybody. Writing when there is a need for something to be written is what's important. And so here, there was a clear need, and what this man asked Jacob to stamp it will take me to do or him Allah
It was 37 at the time, by the way, right? And when did he start teaching?
When he was 19 years old, right? And he was born when?
661. Right? So he started teaching when he was approximately, like, six, eight, okay? And he became very famous for his knowledge. And that's why he was sought out. So at 37, he wrote this creed, he asked me to write a query for him that can serve as a pillar for him and his family. And this is where we get to talk about, and we started last week to talk about the importance of Akkadian. Because what this man saw, and he's a coffee, what, what is a coffee?
It's a judge, right? So he said he was a coffee from a district in Lassen, and you don't become a coffee without reaching some level of knowledge. And as a matter of fact, there's an extensive process, you know, that one goes through to become a coffee. So it wasn't just some regular guy.
He deemed it to be very important that he had a creed that he could hold on to something that even say me, it would rank for him and his family that he could hold on to now, as shangela. Sam mentioned in other places, that creed was copied many times over. And so it became a prevalent creed and Iraq, and especially in Egypt.
The point is, though, that he wanted a creed and he believed that that would be something that would begin to rectify his family and the people
were going to because of the very beginning of the book shakila Sam says, This is the NC Cod, right of the Philippines in Nigeria, have the same scent. We're going to now just go and talk a little bit about what this app p then me. Alright, so what does the word RP the mean publishing linguistically, from the trilateral route of the eye, the cough and the dal? It means to tie to not to fasten to bind. Alright, we got that. What does that either me or what does akademie
and I mean, for those of you who, who have studied some Arabic, that you know that the majority of Arabic words, right, they're going to go back to a trilateral route. Alright, so here we have I cough and down.
So after that is to tie or to not to fasten to bind, right. So that's after the
ACA Dr. kalimba, who Allah Shea, meaning he tied his heart to something he did not the best it that is he did not give it up. And that's from alpha Hades keytab aligned so this is one of the earlier books in your earliest dictionaries, alright, for the Muslims, after the kalba who are rushing, so he tied his heart to something he bounded to something good, all right. And in the Islamic terminology, is a doctrine or the like, upon which one's mind is firmly settled or determined. Or to which one holds at fears, or cleaves with the heart or mind a belief or firm belief, or persuasion. A Cree an article of belief, a religious canon, and this is from Lane's lexicon but ln doesn't do
anything himself he's he's translating from Arabic works Arabic dictionaries. So this is giving us an idea but you can see the relationship right? So it's basically like that firm belief you've tied your heart to this belief or your mind right to disbelief.
This is Shaykh
Muhammad Hassan and with me or him Allah and Volume One of his this the English translation, obviously, in volume one page 65 of the sharp, this is what he says here about 85 which is similar to a lackey that from the same room now, linguistically, the verbal noun, Eric D, all is of the form FTL that is the FTL form of the word adequate, which means binding and time. But with the people of terminology, it means a determined judgment of the mind. It is said I firmly believe such to Canada, yeah, it's applied to Canada. Yeah, right. I firmly believed such and such it's applied to Canada or our tukey do you know meaning I have determined it in my heart and it is definite. Thus it is
determined, it is a determined judgment of the mind. So if it is
agrees with reality it is correct. But if it opposes reality, it is invalid, right? So it can be sound or it can be false. It just means that you firmly believe this thing, and that you don't have any doubt about it. All right. Now, therefore, our belief that a law is one God is correct. While the belief of the Christians that Allah is one of three is wrong, for it opposes reality. Also, the relationship between that and the linguistic meaning is obvious. That is because he who firmly believes something in his art is as if he is bound and tied it to the heart in a way that it does not bolt away clear. So be clear on the meaning of pizza. Okay, in order to talk a little bit about
the importance of APA. We're going to step away from a lackey that was to you
and go to the introduction of even avillez in his explanation of a Lackey, the APA, how are we? Okay, so in his introduction, he does talk about the concept of allottee. The which is also sometimes called a dean, okay. Also a dean and for example, in Medina, there is a clear, okay at a college called kuliah to dour, what will solid be as we went.
So what creates a dowel solid Dean, right? Which is the College of Dawa, and also the dean but what do they teach you? What is what do they teach you and also the dean, it's where they specialize in painting, right? So So, in the beginning of, in the, in the beginning of the explanation of a lackey that was to enable is does a very fine job of highlighting the importance of this science, if you will, this area of knowledge in his name, known as a lakita. Now publishing, the commentators preface, the size of the principles of faith sort of thing is the noblest of all the sciences, for the dignity of a science depends upon the dignity of the subject it studies Okay, so right there,
right there, what do we have? He says that the most important thing that you can study in this man is Fiq, of Salah, right?
melakukan and some tekun
know what he said, What?
lakh either or solid Dean, the principles of faith, he says that this is the pinnacle of what you could study. Because every science that you study, every area of knowledge, every discipline that you study, it gained its nobility from the subject matter. What is the subject matter of actually the What do you study? First and foremost, you studying about what? Allah subhanaw taala is the anything that's that's I'm not going to ask that question. So the point is, there is nothing that is better to know than Allah azza wa jal himself. And so that is one of the reasons why this knowledge is so important, right?
It is a man shouldn't the act bytes up with me without that long vowel in the beginning? Yes, it and telco for a second? Yeah. Must be long. Yes. Yes. Okay. It is, is the fifth app bar, higher knowledge in contrast to physical app for knowledge of practical rules. For this reason, in that Apple hanifa name, where he stated and gathered together in writing concerning the foundations of the religion, they're called the app bar, a person's need for his understanding is greater than any other need, is a greater necessity than any other necessities, including food and drink, for there is no life pleasure or tranquility for hearts, except by knowing their Lord, object of adoration and
creator by his names, attributes an X meaning you know, a loss of habitat and through what he has revealed,
of His Names of his attributes and his actions subhana wa Tada. And it is through that, that you know, a lot and there is no tranquillity through for the heart, except with that knowledge and a person can know everything else. And if they know if they don't know what loss of habitat is, if they know nothing, no, in knowing that he will love him above everything. And he will seek all that brings him close to him and he
He will not pursue anything else of his creation.
It is impossible for unaided human reason to know all of the above, and trivialize it in detail, what's all of the above?
A lot, his names, his attributes, is Ash, it's impossible to know all of that.
Just through reason, right? Just trying to figure things out.
The only way we know that is through
revelation, allies will reveal reveals His names and his attributes to Revelation not therefore, therefore, at the mercy of the merciful the mercy of the merciful Jani, algorithmen subhana wa Tada. All right, let him to send messengers to teach about him, and to call people to believe to believe in Him to follow this, that this is profound. It is from Allah's mercy, that he sent messengers, because those messengers do one, teach people about him somehow.
And without that knowledge mankind is last night,
who ever responded positively to them, received good tidings from the profits, and they can mussalam and whoever oppose them received the warnings from them. The key and the essence of their missions was to impart knowledge of the adored, meaning law, may he be glorified suppiler through His name's attributes and actions, from beginning to end, the goal of their prophecies was built upon this knowledge everything that they came with from beginning to end ultimately goes back to knowing Allah Subhana Allah even the fic that we study, even the salon you're praying to who so a loss of habitat you're making will do for who for loss of habitat if you know none of that.
I mean, if it's not tied to that then what good is it doing?
This is this is thus followed by two important principles. First is the knowledge of the way to a law and that way is Sharia which consists of this commands and prohibitions second is the knowledge of the happiness and bounties which are reserved which are reserved for those who come to a law by following the proper way I want somebody explain it
but don't don't forget what we said last time everybody speak at the same time when I can't understand
now follow last
when I'm when I'm thinking is that the first part is talking about your life on this earth and then the second part when he says second is the knowledge of the happiness human blackjack tables apparently what Okay, so he says this is followed by two important principles. What is this?
The possibility of understanding all this to be known about Oh, okay, what if we make it simpler than that? The knowledge of Allah right the knowledge of Allah. So this knowledge of a law is followed by two important principles. Number one, the first is the way to Allah and that's his Sharia so so after you know, Allah subhana wa tada what what I mean by that, it doesn't mean that you are going to master that knowledge. But you have a fundamental knowledge of who Allah subhanaw taala is foundational knowledge, right?
You also have to know what is the path that leads to his pleasure? subhana wa, Tada. Right? What is the *tier? And that's the study of a fifth in general, okay. And then also knowledge of that, what awaits a person in the hereafter? So knowledge of what happens after death?
And this can, this gives you a very broad picture of where your focus in your studies should be, man, those know a lot.
Why and why do you think this is because these commands and prohibitions, second is the knowledge of the happiness and the bounty. All of this is what the messengers came with, anyway. But But part of this because Allah xojo created us, and he knows the motivation that we need to be able to stay on that path.
And so Allah azzawajal reveals to us that the rewards that await the people who actually stay on the path, no. Those who know Allah best are the best followers of the path to him, and the most knowledgeable of the life that awaits them when they come to him.
For this reason, a law called what he revealed to his messengers, rule, or spirit, because the real life is dependent upon it, he also called it light newer, because guidance is dependent upon it. On law the Most High says, By His command, he sends the spirit to any of his servants he pleases.
And thus we have set by our command, the spirit to you, you knew not before what was revelation, and what was faith, but we have made it the court and a light with we guide such by servants, as we will, and you guide me to the straight path, the weight of the law, to Whom belongs, whatever is in that happens, and whatever is on Earth, behold, affairs tend towards Allah, there is no life, except through that which the messenger brought, and there is no light, except what is lit by it. Notice here he is bringing everything back to the knowledge that the messenger it is Salatu was snam taught.
And this is important, and this will stay with us throughout our study of al Qaeda, that there are people who have left that path, who have believed that there are others who have been enlightened, or whatever the situation may be. And so they follow their way.
Even though that way, is in opposition to the way of the messenger it is Salatu was saying, and so remember these ayat, remember that allies are jealous calling the revelation, the spirit, and he's calling it light, because there is no light except that which is lit through the light of revelation now, although is a cure and the healing for anyone, since only the believers benefit from it, they are specifically mentioned. Yeah, it is.
It is the cure and the healing, I think I think that was skipped was the cure and healing as the law says say, it is a guide and healing for the believers. Although it is a cure and healing for anyone, since only the believers benefit from it. There are specifically named
Mr. Last slide that will cover on this night, Allah sent His messengers with guidance and the true religion. Aside from what they brought, there is no true true guidance. There is no doubt that it is obligatory upon every individual to believe, aside from what they brought, there is no true guidance, whatever philosophy and ideology and so forth, that people come up with, if it is outside of what the messengers came with, it is not guidance period. No, there is no doubt that it is obligatory upon every individual to believe in what the messenger brought in general, there's also no doubt that, you know, the detailed matters of what the messenger put is an obligation upon the
community as a whole father key via, yeah, and sometimes what may be foreign key fire. And as a general rule, meaning it's a communal obligation becomes far the end. Because you may be the one who has the ability to carry out that to the exclusion of other people. And so then it becomes your obligation, right? And so, I'll give you an example something that just happened. So how long so last, last week,
we had a situation where the family member of a brother in this community family member had died. The remainder of the family was non Muslim. Okay. They were going to cremate that brother, I lost fat dad had mercy on him. They were going to cremate him. Okay. Now it is foreign key fire upon the community to do
so make sure that Muslims have a burial that they that they're prepared for the janessa that they haven't done as a barrier. That's why the key fine, but if you don't know about it, is that your obligation So the basic rule is that it's a foreign key fire that is a communal obligation, but because it's this brother's family, and he knows about the situation it becomes what formed the hang on him. Now, if he doesn't have the money to you know, do a burial and things like that, then now he lets people in the community know now becomes an obligation for the community to step up and take care of it. hamdulillah we prayed over that brother after Juma will learn how they were able to
secure the body and prayed over him at Juma lol But But again, the these are the things that sometimes it's foreign key fire as a basic role, but it may
Become foreign bank and it depends on on on the circumstances. This detailed knowledge
this detailed knowledge makes a part of the knowledge which is required for preaching the revelation for elaborating on the Quran and for teaching the book and the sooner regarding the message against corruption, for disseminating its ideas for enjoining good and forbidding evil for calling men to the weight of the Lord with wisdom, effective persuasion and coaching tight good argument and for many other things which Allah has made it incumbent upon the believers therefore it is their collective responsibility to know and understand what the prophet at least a lot westerdam brought in detail Okay, so now what I want you to do is work with a partner and list at least three reasons
why you think that studying al Qaeda is important some of them may have proceeded some of them may have not you need to pick a partner now you have exactly two minutes to list at least three reasons why you think that studying IP is important and a partner here means one other person doesn't mean group work you know four or five people in all this will
Okay, I can see that on the kill
Okay, it's up to you
brought it in that right Don't forget
think about the table of contents that we covered last week.
Knowing what awaits
the boys are punished
what the question was named.
Reasons Why You think
realize so much attention.
Okay, you sound you said reputational refutation. I was gonna say differently, so I'm glad I asked you.
This thing that means time is up.
Okay, all right. Okay, I'm interested Alhamdulillah This is
I'm actually looking forward to hearing some of these answers. Zack lokaler
father felt unsafe.
It helps to secure the knowledge of Allah for us. What do you mean by that? He gave me a little further
So what now, man? No, okay.
Wait before too long. Okay, Mr. manleigh. But I work my way down and
learn the foundation or the aspects of knowledge.
So So you're saying IP that is the foundation for all other knowledge. Okay. That's good.
No, it is how do you
how do you believe if you don't know who Allah is? Then how do you know what to believe about what exactly how to believe? who to believe in how to believe in Okay. Tell you smilla somebody else?
I love that. Love that.
First two to
study you are keeping true to truly know and truly know who am i is okay.
Then it also helps you to understand how to worship
and then it helps you to begin to implement those things to correct your life once implemented. Mashallah, okay all right. Why else
prepares us for our meeting with him.
So if you don't have IP today there is no meeting with a law firm I mean meaning that's part of our key that is to believe that you're going to meet a lot right? The promise I saw him say what mckennitt umino whoever has a man in Allah and the Last Day The let them do such and such right now actually, from our shape appeal to one that wasn't mentioned yet. It provides a sound refutation for all that goes against through appeasement so so the study of al Qaeda allows you also to recognize not just the sound beliefs, but also things that are false so that you can you know, refute that and keep it away from you now.
Also motivates you to stay on that correct path?
Okay, so the study of our pizza is actually motivation to stay straight to stay on the right path. That's good. Now Anything else?
It allows you to be it allows you to uphold the truth and refute false but not
to and to avoid things that displease a lot. Okay. So we're going to go through some things here. Shallow Thomas, step by step. I think I have four mentioned here, I'm studying IP This is important because number one, you are fulfilling an objective of your creation in the first place. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah created us for what purpose? to know Him and to worship Him.
He saw that a Pollock had at the top level of you saw it there yet, Chanukah be taboo. So in solid at the end of solid, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah. Allah Allah the heart of the Samurai samurai, Allah is the one who created the seven heavens woman allowed the mithila when it's unnecessary, m Robaina when nitara mu and Eliana, could you share your career? So Allah is the one who created the seven heavens and the earth, like that the AMA, the commander of a loss of habitat comes down between them.
So that you know, we tie them and Allah Allah Krishna did, that Allah is Able to do all things so Allah created, so that you know, and he also created so that you worship Him because you cannot worship him without but without knowing him.
And that not sound you cannot worship him properly, right without without knowing him somehow. So the study of al Qaeda
which starts with knowledge of Allah Subhana Allah is actually an objective of you being here in the first place you've been creating tight study of it is necessary and relevant, because it helps us to be more deliberate and careful in our thought and speech about Allah.
Yeah, actually, in this society, people say stuff about God all the time. That makes that's cringe worthy.
Because they have no aqidah no foundation, and so they just say stuff.
And I only want to repeat it but but what we have to do is realize that through the study of IP that it allows you right? To
be a lot more careful about what you say about Allah. Because the one thing you don't want to do and in fact, it is a sin that is greater than schicke is enter pulu Allah He man and taught him to say about a lot that what you do not know
and it's mentioned in the Quran and sorted out off in order to call into my help will not be alpha Hmm.
Well, it will bother me right it went to Sri COVID les, Mal and Nunez will be here article soltana will enter kulu Allah He might attack.
And so when Allah Subhana Allah mentions those things which he has made hot
And he mentions them in order of severity, he says and to associate partners with the law, that which he sent down all authority for you to do. And then after that, well intercooled while alignment attack, I won't say about a lot that what you do not know.
And so speaking about Allah, without knowledge is very dangerous.
It is through the study of IP that we allow that it helps us to say what is right to think, first of all, you know, to to our conceptualization is correct. And then obviously what you say follows them. Well, we believe out of lies a jump has an immediate impact on our ethics, how we behave and what we do. And that's just the reality. And that was actually mentioned right? So
I'll just mention very briefly one of the companions heard the Prophet it is Salatu was Sadam mentioned that Allah laughs
now now there is a group and we were going to get there be in the light it will get there.
But there are people because it's from good place, it's from good intention. We want to Tansy hola and in the case we want to, you know,
declare love free from any imperfections, right?
And so, in their mind for this magnificent Lord, Creator of the heavens and earth to laugh, then this means that, you know, they begin to, you know, philosophize everything. And so this means that Oh, he must you know, how do we learn? Haha, oh, you must have a throat in the sound box and all this other craziness. And so, then they say, No, no, no, it doesn't mean that Allah laughs It means something. And so they get into, you know, allegorical interpretations, right.
This just wasn't the way that the companions handled those type of texts when he heard that. What did he say?
When he heard the promise, I saw him say that a lot. He said, Oh, yeah, the apple nobuna.
Our Lord laughs prophesize Adam said Ajit Jain? Yes. Certain. He said that will never despair of good from a lord and laughs
I'm good. That's good. He didn't get into all the house. And what that what does that look? What does that mean? And no. leflaive you understand last class. I said,
the same thing. When you look at yen's de la buena. Our Lord descends and the last third of the night.
when some of them because that that inherent or that leaving off the straight path when it comes to Las pantallas attributes happened in the second century. And towards the, the for after the first quarter of the second century.
Hey, God, and when a man was around for a living and yeah. And he said, You believe in the Lord that goes up and down. The sands are saying this, I believe in the Lord that does what he wants.
And if he's descending in the last third of the night, and he's calling out and he's saying who was going to call on me, so that I may give them who was seeking my forgiveness so that I may forgive them the night that should push a believer in that right to strive in that part of the night. And so again, what we believe about Allah Subhana Allah does have an immediate impact on on what we do. I mean the examples are many examples of many we are here right now. Because we believe that it is a good thing to be in domestic that we are rewarded more for being in domestic that Mr. Miko when he basically will utilize when we get to have a lawyer that also nobody know that there is not a people
come together in the house of Allah reciting the book of Allah studying it amongst themselves, right? Except that Allah has a job since down his Rockman. But she had somewhat of armor that the roadmap penetrates, right, this gathering that the angels surrounding the Chroma love human ended that aligns with others mentioning the people in this gathering right here with those angels who are closest to him, so pana, who was
The last thing that's mentioned here is that the systematic study of al Qaeda provides the framework by which we interact with the unseen and that's why I also want us to not just look at the study of al Qaeda is only the study of the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But in fact, it is dealing with the unseen in its totality.
So what we believe about the angels also has an effect on what we do what we believe
about Allah azza wa jal cutter has a major impact on our mental health, major impact on our mental health, our anxiety, our grief and so forth.
Belief in Eliza Joseph hikma in his decree, what we believe about the hereafter. So everything that is related to the unseen
this systematic study of RP the meaning that we you know we study it subjects subject that that provides the framework so that you have the correct belief
now what's going to follow here is specifically
y RP the related to Allah as Magellan His attributes is important. And this comes from a very well written book in the English language called between the God of the prophets and the God of the philosopher's written by Dr. Handsome and had heavy the hola from
from Dr. Hatton al Hajj,
half of the hula and taking the still living nightmare for the whole lot because it is important to know God and speak correctly about him the translation of the verse in a rough read and to a law belong the best names so invoke him by let me stop right there fed there will be a smell whose net fed there will be a lot to love belongs the best names, so invoke him by them. Also another valid interpretation is so worship Him through them.
Okay, because federal who right at da is both invoking and it's worship and leave the company of those who practice deviation concerning His names. They will be recompense they will be paid back for what they have been doing, what what have they been doing, they deviated as it relates to Allah His name's and Allah azza wa jal says they're going to be rewarded for the for the deviation, and reward By the way, as we've covered before, does not just mean something that's good. Now
there is nothing, nothing safer and farther from being deserving of the threat and dispersed then describing a law with that, by which he describes himself.
And my wishes messages about what she's mentioning is describing me and saying that there is nothing safe right and far from being deviating from this version. Right? So how do we stay away from the threat of Allah Subhana Allah in this verse, the threat is to those who deviate concerning His names. How do we stay away from that threat? by describing along the way that he described himself? by describing him the way that the messenger it is Salatu was Salam described them
in that way, you don't fall into any deviation related to because who is better in speech then than Allah?
The declarative part of the Sharia is not less important than its imperative part was that me?
That which makes a statement, no declare, okay, that which makes it first statement is that less than that, which gives a command? Right? So the declarative part, what he's talking about here is the the ilmi part the after the part, the knowledge based part of the *tier right, this is not any less important than the impaired than the commands and prohibitions of a loss pantalla whereas a lot of people they get caught up into the commands and a prohibition they're very particular about external things right and not so and do not give as much concern to the internal not, then it's imperative part which provides the moral ethical framework. In fact, telling us about a law is the
most important and noblest aspect of the revelation and therefore what is the what is the greatest idea in the Quran
is of course he is of course he has a combination of 20 of a las pantallas names and attributes.
Like No Other verse, and no crime and and this is why it is the greatest I and the cry because it's telling us about a lot of Hannah who want to add
and I and and sort of a class is a is a third of the Orion
and in all it is talking about is a lot of data. There's no any explicit commands or prohibitions now, type also.
Wayne had also lalla This is the next one
Next slide, same same topic, why affirming allows attributes is important, the impact the impact on our faith and relationship with the Lord. what is at stake here as well is our conception of the law as living, active and intimate. And this is very, very important because those who do not and I know we're jumping the gun here talking about a lot of hands on his attributes and give it somewhat some detail. But there are people who only describe Eliza Magellan the negative
he is not this he is not that he is not this he is not that right.
He is not above and not below. He's not right. He's not left. He's not No, he's not out he's not right. This is their, the way that they describe Allah Subhana Allah. And so
what he's saying is that the importance of affirming a lot of attributes having sound creed as it relates to laws, attributes, is he says, what's at stake here is this conception of Allah Subhana Allah that we should have as a living an active and intimate deity. sapan subhanho wa Tada. Brahim said to his father, the translation of which reads, Father, why do you worship that which is not here and does not see and will not benefit you at all.
Islam seeks to remove all intermediaries between humankind and the law and make a person smart attached only to him. These intimate those intermediaries are prevalent in the history of religion and philosophy. Whether they are multiple gods, the Trinity, or new or neoplatonist emanations.
The attributes of a law in Islam are clearly expressing a personal guide to whom his creatures can relate and who and whom they can love. Speak to with certainty that he hears them as they speak and worship him with certainty that he sees them as they bow, prostrate, and stand. I mean, imagine those people who deny that aligns with your CS would deny that aligns with Jo hears Muslims, people will attribute themselves to Islam.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that he faces the face that the servant as long as he does not turn away. It is an image of below who constantly is an image of a God who constantly engages with his temporal creations and efficient cause not only Finally, an object of worship, not only wonderment a God who is perpetually capable, perpetually capable of doing that which he pleases as our food bail reading Allahu Allah. Right Mama.
He is not not as a hobby. He's one of one of the bad TV okay? said when they ask you about a laws they said, I believe in a lord who does whatever he pleases. Okay, so now that we've finished with that digression,
I'm going to get back to this statement again, and this is the reason why we took this turn. The reason that this work was written is that one of the colleagues from a district and whilst a man named rob the Dean of Assa t a chef and he came to us during the pilgrimage, he complained about the preponderance of ignorance and injustice amongst his people. And then he asked them to write this arcada for him, because I key that is important.
And that's why we took that journey,
because that is the foundation.
So writing about ethics and morals and filk and whatever else
without this foundation is not going to go very far. Right? And if you think about it,
you think about when Allah azza wa jal revealed the the prohibition of hammer the total prohibition of drinking any intoxicants. What did the campaign is do
as soon as it was revealed, and they heard it.
All they did was turn it over. They turned it out, until as enniscorthy Alo Tana and Jani that it was v Sikka kill Medina, and that it was flowing in some of the alleyways in Medina because everybody got rid of what they had. Everybody got rid of what they had, because they truly believed in Allah. They had a found they had a creedal foundation that puts push them to do that.
Like, when you tell certain brothers to do something just get one last puff.
Last puff, no last week? No, no, it's haram has over done, I say a lot brevity finished.
So it's really important to see how when it comes from IP, the real IP the meaning the hardest tied right to it, that when it really comes from that
is very, the rest becomes very easy to do.
I'm we're going to just cover some,
a few more things that need to be covered. I know we only have 10 minutes left. So we're going to cover just a few more things that need to be covered before we actually go into a lackey that was here.
is to clarify this question. Is this creed that we're studying? Now, ie the last year?
Is this the creed of the man I met? I mean, as an individual? Or is this the creed of the setup
as a whole?
let's, let's read what schakel the Stan was saying was happening during the trial because we going back to the trial, and this book was on trial. Right?
What happened from
34. But when the aforementioned judge saw how conspiration and policy they were, and how few of them would acknowledge and support the truth, and he became different than who I who was them, they are the other scholars and fuqaha that had gathered right to be the judges or the jury, if you will, of Yvan Tamia. No, he said, You have compiled the creed of the men.
Shall we just say then that this is the creed of men. So So this is one of the judges who was actually he was actually gonna shake on the same side, he had been convinced he was looking for a way out.
And the way out was, hey, let's just say that this is the hambley Creed. That means all the Hanafi is in the Shafi they get to walk away with no, you know, they without having to accept it, because they could just say what is hanbali cream?
I mean, the man is merely compiled to create according to his school method checklist, Sam sees him believing he's just you know, compiling a Korean disassembly for you to school, he should not be molested for this. For this hanbali school is a recognized school. His aim in all of this was simply to dismantle this disputants objection. So shaker Sam knew that he was on his side, and he was just trying to calm everything down.
So I said, I have simply compiled the creative, the pious essence itself is solely as a whole, in an athlete, rahimullah has no special claim to this. So his thing was, I know one second, no second, no, this isn't email akademiska, he doesn't have a special claim to this. This is the IP that itself all of
you email made simply communicate whatever knowledge comes to him on the authority of the Prophet solo. And he was where he to assert on his own something that did not come from the prophet of a slap, slap, we would not accept it. Indeed, this creed is the creed of Muhammad Sallallahu whether he was seven
that doesn't give much wiggle room and doubt and when he went further, he didn't just say there's the treated itself. He said, this is the creative Mohammed bin Abdullah Salalah while he was so now they gotta fight. Because, you know, now he's, he's saying, This is the truth. Right? Okay.
I want to just again, we we're not gonna, you can read the whole trial for yourself, there's gonna be things in there, that won't be understood until we get further into the book. But there are certain things I did want to highlight. One of them is the depth of shakoora Sam's knowledge, because I think that this also is one of the things that adds value to the book in any book, right? What the first thing that you look at is, who's the author, right? When the author of the book is is a, you know, a prominent figure, then that gives the book value immediately tell you from this is a deep state and people I said during the course of this, I know every bit that every innovation that
has ever occurred in slam.
The first ones to introduce it, not just the bidder, but who was the one that
that that introduced that
To die, right? And the reason behind it's being introduced and that is what makes him very, very different than most of the scholars even off even of Harris theology, which is the study of Buddha. Okay.
That's it. I need to know, the reason behind it being introduced, what was it that led to that person introducing that bid? I know more of that which I should have, I should have standing, I struck the standards cited regarding the term with the Kelvin moon.
We don't worry about it, it's wrong, you don't regret it for the next 12. I added, I know the drag trends of those who disagree with anything I have written better than themselves.
Now, you know, he's not saying this to boast. He's really not. He's trying to let them know, we're not the same weight class.
Y'all really just need to go sit somewhere else. Because anybody who disagrees with me, I know what your disagreement is. I know why you disagree with me, and I know the whole concept better than you do. And he's not lying. He's actually quite truthful about that. No, I do not remember whether I said this before or after the fifth Creek was put forth. But I do remember after the creek was put forth and read aloud in court, I said, There is not a single chapter in this creed, that that does not have its opponents among those who profess Islam. every sentence in it contradicts the doctrine of some or another group. Now, that being said, he did not write it. And this brings us to a very
important point, when we talk about the difference in the books of al Qaeda shakoora, Sam did not write this book as a refutation of false creeds, he wrote this book to establish the creed of Addison. And this is what makes this book a very important book for beginning and intermediary students. Because it's not there to mention, this is the correct belief. And this is the false belief. And let's go into detail about false beliefs. So let's refute these ideas of you know, false sex, and so on and so forth. It's to establish what we're supposed to believe.
And those are cool to be clear, and establishing, establishing the correct IP that as opposed to put a bar Right, right, which are written to refute some false claim or false idea.
So even though he knows that every sentence contradicts the doctrine of some or another group, he is not going into that type of detail almost anywhere in the book. I don't think more than 10% of the book is is addressing any of what we would say are false Creed's at all. And 90% of the book is just to establish the correct beliefs. Now, one, here's another thing that highlights the value of an athlete that wants to be iterated I repeated many times over, I get three years rest by taking three years Give me three years, to anyone who disagrees with anything I've mentioned in this creed, surely bring forth from the first piece in two centuries of Islam with the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa
Salaam praised VA statement, the best of centuries is the one in which I was sent. And then the final one, then the one following that a single, a single one consonant contradicting that which I have stated here, and I will take back I will reset my statement, wow, stop there. So in other words, and it didn't happen, by the way. And so he didn't say three days, which would have seemed reasonable, or even three weeks, which would have been like a really nice, long period of time. He said, Take three years. And if there's anything that is in this creed that contradicts the, either of the setup, right? Which, which nobody who's thinking logically, right, would say that the self
believes this, but some people who came 200 to 300 or four years later believe something else. So that's the correct belief.
Because they were the ones who took directly from the Prophet alayhi salatu was Santa companions, and their students from the tabea. So he's saying, look, bring something from them. that contradicts what's in this happy that and I'll take it back.
Otherwise, allow me to go on molesting because all I have done is brought forth what they believed, and that's something for myself, right? tight. So this actually takes us to the introduction of the author. When he starts his book with Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, which will start next week be it Nila into Baraka tada because we only have two minutes left so we can I'm going to speed back to
The beginning. And let's go really quickly. Why is the study of athlete important? Anybody want to mention?
To establish the correct belief, the belief that allows her gel. And he revealed in his book to establish the framework of how we interact with the unseen in general. Live Anything else? Yeah.
directly impacts your actions, right? your belief correct or incorrect? Does it have a direct impact on your actions, not just your belief in the unseen, but your belief about things in general? Right? So
you know, they used to be a thing, I hope is not a thing anymore. Where brothers will you will find them staring at something that they shouldn't be looking at?
Exactly What are you doing? So you know, the first look is for me, and the second one is fishing time. So now that's not exactly what that means. But that's what they believed. So they believe first look is for me know, the inadvertent look right? is the one you're not charged for. That's that's the one that inadvertent not the purposeful, long, look, that way you don't blink your eyes with two picks in and hold it up.
But it's, but it was based on what it was based on a false belief. And it impacted what people do. That's that's the reality. So So belief has an impact on what you do. And if it's a false belief is going to lead to false actions. Why is this bukata lacking was the one that mentioned three things that make this book important father.
Yellow, even worked together on that. So your father died?
No, this particular book, why isn't it that was important? Go ahead.
Okay, because it talks about the act of the self play. What else? Yes.
Because the book was on trial, so it has gone through a period of scrutiny that makes it important. Well, who's the author?
The author is immense Amy, and we've gone through certain things to just show the depth of his knowledge and the confidence that you can have him but he's right, it doesn't mean he's perfect, does not mean he's perfect. But it does give you some confidence in what has been written type. There's a lot that can be said about that two broad categories of pre books and then we'll stop there.
books that establish the correct IP that and books that what refute, you know, false beliefs, where does the student have knowledge start
the correct beliefs establishing the correctly you don't want to get into who said what in this particular sect, and that will want to stray in this note this establish the correct beliefs with its proofs.
And then you can worry about and then you can worry about the clips of that deal or the books that deal with refuting false beliefs. Whether that is whether that is inside of Islam or the false beliefs of those who do not even ascribe themselves to Islam either below and also on Sunday.
