Hi, I'm Al Hamdulillah and I want to stay in on a stock photo on order below my shoulder fusino CTR Marina Maria De La La Maddalena Juana, your balloon Hello her the Allah or shadow Allah. Allah dollar surely gotta shadow under Mohammed Abdullah water Suba sallallahu alayhi wa the early he was he also limiter Sleeman, cathinone, Naomi Dean, I'm bad. The questions that we have any

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

okay hamdulillah

00:00:30 --> 00:00:32

as their link anyway.

00:00:34 --> 00:00:36

Okay. Hey, Anna Sharla pipe

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

while we're waiting on the questions Shall I just want to begin today's lesson or before we actually begin, begin the lesson

00:00:50 --> 00:00:54

a reminder to, to all of us

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

that we have a duty as Muslims to change evil to the best of our ability.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:13

The Prophet alayhi salatu salam said, man, what am in common Cara, failure of a year will be whoever sees an evil, something that is monka that will change it with this hand.

00:01:15 --> 00:01:53

Woman, let me just say it will be the same. And if you can't change it with your hand, if you can change it with your hand, it is obligatory to change it with your hand. And if you cannot, then with your tone, and with your tone, well, I'm gonna let me stop there for be can be here and whoever doesn't have the ability to do with his tongue, and obviously not his hand, then in the heart, that is that you recognize it as mooncup You don't become desensitized that it remains to you as something evil that you feel in your heart.

00:01:54 --> 00:02:02

Would that occur above an amen? That is the weakest form of Amen.

00:02:09 --> 00:02:20

Prophet alayhi salatu salam said also that a haka, volumen or Maluma, help your brother whether he is the oppressor, or the one being oppressed?

00:02:21 --> 00:02:32

The companion said to the Prophet Isaiah, so it was saying, we know how to help the one that's oppressed, but how do we help the one that is the oppressor, the prophets of law, it was so informed them to stop him from his oppression.

00:02:34 --> 00:02:35

And I'm mentioning that because

00:02:37 --> 00:02:55

it is easy to become desensitized to the atrocities that are taking place. And Philistine. It's easy for a person to Okay, call us we heard it for the last 10 days, we heard it for two weeks, or however long this is going to last and just say call us.

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

And that is the wrong approach to take.

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

If you can't do anything with your hand, and none of us have the ability at this stage to do anything with our hands and that sense.

00:03:11 --> 00:03:12

Then with your tone,

00:03:14 --> 00:03:46

continue to speak about it let the narrative change, make the narrative change, make the social media algorithms work in favor of the Muslims and the cause of the people who are living under apartheid, worse than apartheid. Were living under worse conditions than that. Let that be let that be the prevailing narrative. And don't give up SubhanAllah. You know,

00:03:47 --> 00:03:50

one of the things that's interesting is that,

00:03:51 --> 00:04:20

and this this happens anytime misinformation is spread. And this is really important for us as Muslims because we have guidance from Allah subhanaw taala on every aspect of life and coolant, including this. People start sending around videos, videos are from four years ago, and we push them out as if they came out yesterday. Oh, I never thought I would see this or whatever. And I send it out. It was from four years ago. And we don't verify anything. We just take whatever information comes and we regurgitate

00:04:23 --> 00:04:25

and it's important for us to know

00:04:27 --> 00:04:35

that this is just not the approach that a Muslim has to anything. Allah azza wa jal says yo yo Lilina Amnon JAL confess it won't be never in forever, you know,

00:04:38 --> 00:05:00

old people of faith, if a facet comes to you with information, the verify, verify what is a facet mean in this context? It's it's somebody who's untrustworthy, disreputable like this person has proven that you can't just take their word for it. That is the entire mainstream America

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

Can media. And that is something I'm just saying, as Muslims, it is interesting that some of us actually just take the mainstream media wholesale.

00:05:11 --> 00:05:15

Well, you would think Subhanallah Okay, well, we can at least trust the president, right?

00:05:17 --> 00:05:23

Who goes on and says that he saw videos, he saw videos, you have to be

00:05:26 --> 00:05:44

I was gonna say you have to be blind to see those kinds of videos, but he doesn't like they don't exist. They don't. I he claims that he saw videos of 40 young children or young Israeli children being beheaded or whatever. And we know that that they had to walk that back, the White House had to walk that back.

00:05:45 --> 00:05:48

The media was pushing out the claim

00:05:50 --> 00:06:06

that Muslim terrorists were * Israeli woman. Oh, then the LA Times had to walk that back. Why did they walk that back? I actually want you to think about that. Why did they walk that back? And it's better for the Muslims that they walked back.

00:06:07 --> 00:06:10

And it's better for justice and is better for the truth. Why did they walk it back?

00:06:14 --> 00:06:18

Because they couldn't prove it. They can't prove any of the stuff that they say and don't walk anything back.

00:06:20 --> 00:06:25

If it was just a matter of them not being able to prove it, they will be walking back everything.

00:06:27 --> 00:06:28

Why do you think they walked it back?

00:06:30 --> 00:06:50

Because of people speaking up? Because this pressure? The regular people this is not just because somebody would a what an account of, you know, 2 million followers and all of that. No, they just kept getting pushed back from here. And from there, they say, wait a minute, we're seeing videos coming out. Where a woman is saying that

00:06:51 --> 00:06:59

Muslims enter my home and they didn't do anything to me asked me Can I have a banana it? We must let me not gonna do anything to hurt you as a civilian.

00:07:01 --> 00:07:22

And so because they got the push back, then they had to walk back the narrative. Now here's the problem. 48 hours of spewing a whole bunch of nonsense and poison the people. The walk back is not enough. And so now when a young Muslim gets killed, six years old, because some nut

00:07:23 --> 00:07:48

is claiming to be paranoid. Why is he paranoid? Because of the stuff that the news media is feeding him as garbage and not even the truth. And yet we have these kinds of consequences. So it really is a part yeah, you want to do m&r Jacqueline fancy convener benefits a vegan when untrustworthy people come to you with information, right? Verify that information first.

00:07:49 --> 00:08:18

America has a history. Its media has a history of lying about war. And we do have to understand I mean, this there's a quote, even from the 1800s, famous American Republican who said that the first casualty of war is truth. It's the first thing that gets killed in a war, because each side is trying to run their propaganda machine.

00:08:20 --> 00:08:23

And I'm saying that for us.

00:08:24 --> 00:08:47

We have truth, while hamdulillah people need that truth, and we ought to just push back with the truth. That is more with the people of Palestine right now from us, along with our do eyes, which is even more important than anything you could do with your hand. It's nothing you're gonna do by getting on a plane and going over there. So get yourself hurt.

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

That's not where the changes, that's not where the changes even happened. And that's actually not even where the major war that's going on right now. Because if Israel loses their propaganda war here, they lost everything.

00:09:02 --> 00:09:20

They've lost everything. Because the occupation will not be able to continue if they lose their their propaganda war. And that's what they want. They want to continue that occupation, until Palestine is no longer till it doesn't exist anymore.

00:09:22 --> 00:09:48

And if they lose that war, and I'm saying that's a war that we all can fight, so war that we all shouldn't be fighting, push back, push the real narratives. Don't let people draw you into the Hamas and Iran and all this stuff. I don't care nothing about that. Here's where we are. Let's keep it let's let's play on their turf. In this sense, Amnesty International calls Israeli occupation apartheid.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:53

By who's the most famous figure when you think of the word of apartheid?

00:09:54 --> 00:10:00

Nelson Mandela. He said that the apartheid that the Palestinians have

00:10:00 --> 00:10:15

Facing facing this was back in 1997. And it's worse now, I'm saying what's happening now Palestine is worse than what was happening 99 Seven. But he said, the apartheid that the Palestinians are facing

00:10:16 --> 00:10:19

is worse than anything that the South Africans ever faced.

00:10:22 --> 00:10:24

Same thing was said by

00:10:26 --> 00:10:27

Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

00:10:29 --> 00:10:43

Again, these are, these are figures who lived through that era, and they somehow know what they're going through is far worse than anything we ever dealt with. Right? We don't have to use the voices of Muslims when we trying to convince non Muslims.

00:10:46 --> 00:10:47

Human Rights Watch

00:10:49 --> 00:10:59

refers to Gaza. Gaza is an open air prison. We don't have to come in we call it that. Oh, yeah, no, this No, that's 34 walls, all around the whole thing were they supposed to go?

00:11:01 --> 00:11:05

And then when they tell these Muslims,

00:11:06 --> 00:11:12

listen, you will be safe if you just go over here. And then they bombed the same exact place that they tell them to go to? What is that?

00:11:14 --> 00:11:18

And today bombing a hospital, killing over 500 people a hospital.

00:11:21 --> 00:11:28

And as we have to stay alive, and I'm saying this here, SubhanAllah. Because

00:11:29 --> 00:12:12

sometimes I think as, as a people, especially, and I'm going to, I'm gonna just say this with the risk of being controversial, but especially as African American Muslims, there's oftentimes a feeling of, well, they don't stand up for our causes, you know, the cause of the plight, George Floyd or whatever happened here in America, and when that was going on, and nobody was saying anything, and these same people, they're the same people that come down into our communities, and they sell pork and cigarettes and alcohol and so on, so forth. true and not true. I'm saying, hypothetically, let's just say that all of that is true. Hypothetically, what they're gonna do

00:12:13 --> 00:12:19

is you're speaking up for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, because if that's the case, it doesn't really matter what they don't.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:26

And if it's not for the sake of Allah azza wa jal go sit down for a mic, go get your intentions right?

00:12:28 --> 00:12:36

Because if that's not what it's about, it's not about them. It's not about this is this is about what is right in front of Allah subhana wa Tada

00:12:37 --> 00:12:39

will occur. The Apostle noble sunnah

00:12:40 --> 00:13:08

will be net what is in my own monkey table what it means in the Kuhlmann nasil bill, because that's what this is about. All of the messages were sent with clear proof with bayonet. And Allah azza wa jal was revealed to them and sent down with them books in the museum scale. What's that mean ZAN? What is that skill, Justice Lea Coleman nasil bill, just so that people will stand for justice.

00:13:09 --> 00:13:11

All of the prophets came with that.

00:13:13 --> 00:13:15

If we're not going to stand for justice, what kind of human beings are

00:13:17 --> 00:13:35

one that Islam become? My personal thing is just what I do is just my five daily prayers, it just Massekhet when did the slam become that? It became that because somebody convinced us and I'm just, I have to be brutally honest. Somebody convinced us that we're supposed to be a political whatever that means.

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


00:13:38 --> 00:13:40

it's so interesting.

00:13:41 --> 00:13:43

And you can look back in the last

00:13:45 --> 00:13:46

35 years.

00:13:48 --> 00:13:55

The last time that that you'll see mainstream call for jihad.

00:13:56 --> 00:13:58

I'm gonna leave it like that mainstream.

00:13:59 --> 00:14:04

Because other than that, you look back and it's no jihad. The only Jihad that happened was 35 years ago, we're

00:14:07 --> 00:14:08

in Afghanistan.

00:14:09 --> 00:14:12

You know why? Because America said it was okay.

00:14:14 --> 00:14:26

Now forever, if we're going to be real, that's what that was about. Otherwise, what what do people from Saudi Arabia from Kuwait if we're going to use this, what do they have to do with Afghanistan?

00:14:27 --> 00:14:41

Because that's the same argument being used now on as a Palestinian thing. Hello, I'm not I'm not getting into whether this is a legitimate jihad, not jihad, whatever, whether people should go no, forget that. We're going to do this with our tongues being the lakeside

00:14:42 --> 00:14:45

and let them deal with that. And that's on their shoulders.

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

But it strikes me is really ad

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

that the last time there was a mainstream call for jihad was when America said this is jihad in Afghanistan, because they were

00:15:00 --> 00:15:02

We're giving money to Ben Latin in support now.

00:15:05 --> 00:15:09

So now everybody's supposed to go to Afghanistan fight against Russia, because that's what America wanted him to do.

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

That he Subhanallah we cannot, we cannot go for the Okey doke.

00:15:17 --> 00:15:22

Just like we cannot go for it when it comes to what the media is spewing.

00:15:24 --> 00:15:39

They dropped bombs that killed 200,000 plus people in Japan, Hiroshima, based on what Golubac. And this is not me talk, this is their own history book. It was lies, lies, Vietnam was

00:15:40 --> 00:15:56

a lie, a big lie. When they the Pentagon Papers came out. And they go in, they clarified that the military was lying to Congress and to the public. Because military because war is big business.

00:15:58 --> 00:16:05

People get rich off of wars. And they're the same people that own the media. And they're the same people that control the narrative.

00:16:07 --> 00:16:09

time many of you were alive 20 years ago.

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

Invasion of Iraq,

00:16:14 --> 00:16:17

whose invasion of Iraq based on 2003

00:16:18 --> 00:16:22

weapons of mass destruction that they knew was a lie.

00:16:23 --> 00:16:30

In that sense, because this was 22,023. Now, this year, the 20 year anniversary, so they had a big

00:16:32 --> 00:16:54

media campaign against that war, which was based on lies, because the media lies about war. And I'm telling you these things, because we live in America, we all have non Muslim neighbors. We all have non Muslim colleagues, non Muslim classmates to the end of it.

00:16:56 --> 00:17:00

Speak the truth. Let them know that because

00:17:01 --> 00:17:26

you cannot allow them to make this be this is a Muslim versus Jewish thing. This ain't even about that. This is about oppression, and injustice versus justice, period. And if you're supposed to be an American, from the values of this country, is that we stand for justice. That's an that's an as a Muslim value. Let's start let's look at what Justin is then. Let's look at the numbers.

00:17:27 --> 00:17:30

143 Israeli babies killed. Okay, that's bad.

00:17:32 --> 00:17:39

condemn it. That's fine. We're waiting for you to condemn the 2400 Palestinian babies that have been killed.

00:17:41 --> 00:17:45

Right? Like this. This is not rocket science.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:57

But it's upon us. And I'm trying to say this because we have to have a voice in this. This is the turning point in Manila

00:17:58 --> 00:18:04

once they lose this propaganda war, which is why you see people's Facebook accounts being

00:18:06 --> 00:18:15

shut down. People's Instagram accounts being said, why why do you think that is? Because they realize how powerful changing the narrative is.

00:18:17 --> 00:18:38

That's why otherwise what do they care about some random Joe Blow on Twitter or, or Facebook or Instagram? What do they care? Scott got 50 friends on Facebook. No, you shutting down at account? They're trying? It's an intimidation thing shut. For what? What is that? Because they realize how powerful the voice is.

00:18:39 --> 00:18:46

And so the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So if you can't change it with your hand, change it with your tone,

00:18:47 --> 00:19:03

change claim the narrative and let people know what the truth is. This is not about something that happened two Saturdays ago. It's not about that in history didn't begin on October 7. So don't let that be the narrative.

00:19:05 --> 00:19:18

Take Back the narrative. show people the occupation that has happened of Palestine you don't even have to use the term Muslim anymore because they bombing Christians they don't care anything about who's it who's there?

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

Don't they don't care anything about

00:19:22 --> 00:19:35

this is about the annihilation of a people and ethnic cleansing. And it is upon us to not just go for whatever we hear in the media. Last thing I want to say on this before we get to the class inshallah.

00:19:37 --> 00:19:54

I do not I'm not a fan of the news. But last night I just happened to I said, let me see what they're saying on CNN, MSNBC, all the progressive news outlets. Let's see what they say. Because if they if they are going crazy, then you already know what's going on on the right wing stuff.

00:19:56 --> 00:19:59

And here they are parading around

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

Uh, let's look at the 199. Israeli. So looking at this one's name is so and so and this is how many children they have and Oh, this one, he's waiting for his family to come back. Let me show you the sneakers of his daughter who was kidnapped or or taken his hostages not right? And so like, what's the what's the whole point behind that?

00:20:23 --> 00:20:31

When a human eyes, they want to humanize the Israeli side by by humans. And we recognize that

00:20:33 --> 00:20:38

in this on the same token when it comes to the Muslims

00:20:40 --> 00:21:15

I mean, they openly say this is not our calamities, these animals were killing their animals. And they've done nothing to humanize nothing at all, to humanize the Palestinians. In fact, every move that has been made has been to dehumanize those people. So they won't show you they show you the images of blood across the kitchen floor and the Senate. They won't show you the images from today. Body parts everywhere, little kids with body parts all over the place. They're never going to show that because this is the Emmett Till moment.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:21

When people in America woke up to the brutality of racism

00:21:23 --> 00:21:28

when that woman decided, no, I'm going to let people see what they did to my son.

00:21:29 --> 00:21:34

And then America woke up and said, whoa, whoa, that's what's been happening. It's been happening for 50 6070 years.

00:21:36 --> 00:21:43

But now you get to see it. They don't want that to happen. They don't. So they'll show you the images of what's happening.

00:21:44 --> 00:21:47

Or to humanize the Israeli side.

00:21:48 --> 00:22:02

But muscles blood is cheap, and shallow to Anna, shallow talent that can and will change but it does require courage. It requires people to speak up. Don't just listen to that stuff happen and don't but don't.

00:22:03 --> 00:22:24

Also, don't go for the bait. Don't make this about Muslim versus Jews. This is about this is about justice versus oppression. Leave it at that. It's about people's land being occupied who are resisting, keep it at that. Because if you get dropped, if you fall for the bait, you're gonna be an anti Semite.

00:22:25 --> 00:22:41

You in a second about anti semitism, the Jews in this country, many of them are speaking out against what's happening. Many of them because they also are people have been at the end of the day. And they don't they don't see this as being something that's just

00:22:43 --> 00:23:22

so many of the Jewish people are speaking out against this and we need to highlight that as well. Che che you don't mean it, right? Be somebody from your own family. This bearing witness will almost die. That being said, it is important for us not to get distracted, to continue to study our deen to continue to memorize the Quran. Spend time with the Quran, to continue to learn your deen because this is going to come and go. Like every other battle in Islam has come and gone and every other war will almost die. I mean, this is different. Obviously, it's not the same as what has been happening in the last few years. But what I'm saying is that this is going to end and even at the time of the

00:23:22 --> 00:23:24

prophet Isaiah Salatu was Sudan.

00:23:25 --> 00:23:28

Allah azza wa jal revealed in the Quran surah to Toba, that

00:23:30 --> 00:23:51

everybody shouldn't go out and find that there has to be a group that remains behind that learns, because some people are going to be left and they're going to need to be taught they're doing. So it's important that we don't get so engrossed that that becomes the entirety of our day and we're not continuing to learn and study along we'll stop

00:23:52 --> 00:24:00

by Can we read the questions for Sheikh matar and then we go ahead and start without reading the Longstaff study guide, the

00:24:04 --> 00:24:04

They are among the successful merchants with me a lot of video needs to be their training and livelihood. Okay, so on a site where I put a circle around merchants and I really want you to to look at this theme which comes throughout the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada in terms of trade, the theme of being a merchant and being involved with trade Allah azza wa jal says in Surah Tober the 100 and 11th i And Allah Shalom in a movie Nina info someone why don't be another human agenda, you call to UniFi

00:26:56 --> 00:27:05

Sybilla for your call to Luna, Yokota. Luna why then are they happening if it's alright you will in genuine Quran? So Allah azza wa jal

00:27:06 --> 00:27:34

says that he has in Allah indeed Allah has purchased from the believers, themselves he has purchased them their souls and their wealth, their property, in exchange for what for agenda, what is their? What is their qualities? What what are their qualities, what makes them stand out as believers? How is it that Allah azza wa jal has purchased their souls you caught in order for you to really learn,

00:27:36 --> 00:27:38

they fight for the sake of Allah,

00:27:40 --> 00:27:42

for your platoon, for your hotel room,

00:27:44 --> 00:27:54

and in the process of them fighting, some of them kill and some of them are killed, which is the nature of any type of war.

00:27:55 --> 00:27:58

This is a promise from ALLAH SubhanA data

00:27:59 --> 00:28:01

which has come in the Torah

00:28:02 --> 00:28:06

and the INJEEL the Gospel and the Quran

00:28:07 --> 00:28:12

and who is better and fulfilling his promise than Allah

00:28:14 --> 00:28:17

for establish he will be made equal Milady back to me.

00:28:18 --> 00:28:25

So Allah azza wa jal tells the real believers to be to take those glad tidings.

00:28:27 --> 00:28:29

The business that they are involved in

00:28:30 --> 00:28:31

this day

00:28:33 --> 00:28:44

and that is the weather Attica waterfalls and Alvim. So on the site you can write, go back and read, sorted to Tober 100 and 11th A

00:28:46 --> 00:29:02

and sorted faulted 29th and the 30th I Eliza, justice and Alladhina Tsuna keytab Allah welcome Salah M fakuma, Mel's Akane home seven wide Ania Yong Joon attea gel a 10. Then toward

00:29:04 --> 00:29:17

Allah azza wa jal says those who get Luna keytab Allah for those who have attended Sheikh Khalifa class what does it mean yet Luna Kitab Allah Tilawat keytab Allah

00:29:20 --> 00:29:22

to recite the book of Allah and

00:29:25 --> 00:29:59

so what is tilava? Actually me yet slew? Yes, Lucia is to follow something, right? Right to act on it to implement it. So so it's not just the recitation of Allah's book, it is the implementation, those who yet Luna Kitab Allah, okay, recite and follow the commands of the book of Allah and established the salah, and give generously from what We have provided for them secretly and openly, secretly and openly. Y'all junuh T Java 10 taboo they are hoping for

00:30:00 --> 00:30:04

But at Java, a business that will never fail.

00:30:06 --> 00:30:07

They have merchants,

00:30:08 --> 00:30:14

the Lufia whom will judo because Allah azza wa jal will give them their reward and for

00:30:16 --> 00:30:20

Will you see the human fugly and give them even more from his grace?

00:30:21 --> 00:30:47

Right give them way more than they deserve in the Huva fold one shellcode because He is Forgiving and Appreciative. He's forgiving so even the shortcomings that a person has and fulfilling whatever obligations Eliza don't forgive that and he should call he's appreciated. So a person who makes an effort Allah azza wa jal give them even more than what they deserve. But again, he's talking about what TGL the merchants

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

sorted to serve Allah subhanaw taala says Yoda, Dena Amman, hello, don't look at Java 10 g koombana. There have been any

00:31:00 --> 00:31:07

all you who believe or people of faith, Salah not inform you of at Java, this business

00:31:08 --> 00:31:16

business that will save you from a painful torment. What is that business to me No, never lie to somebody

00:31:17 --> 00:31:38

having faith in Allah Allah and His messenger to Jaya he doing if He's severely Allah, pm Wyrley coma and for cecum and that you struggle and Allah Azza Hills calls with your wealth and with yourselves that is better for you if you only but new, so that is the prosperous

00:31:40 --> 00:32:00

T Java. That is what Allah is revealing. This is why the author Rahim Allah Tiana, refers to them here as merchants, they are those however, who allow business to divert them from Allah azza wa jal is remembrance right. And this is interesting because

00:32:02 --> 00:32:06

it is a person's crave for wealth,

00:32:08 --> 00:32:16

that will often divert them from the remembrance of Allah subhana data or even from becoming Muslim which is which is one of the themes of sort of their yet

00:32:18 --> 00:32:29

that risk people searching for sustenance and therefore turning away from the obedience of ALLAH SubhanA who was added, so you will see a person for example,

00:32:30 --> 00:32:31

not come to salata Juma why?

00:32:33 --> 00:32:35

Because he's busy at work.

00:32:37 --> 00:32:38

He goes to work for what?

00:32:39 --> 00:32:46

To make money, sustenance, searching for sustenance. And so he leaves off what

00:32:47 --> 00:32:53

the remembrance of Allah that merchant is a failure and that T Jonah is failure.

00:32:54 --> 00:32:55

That business data is a failure.

00:32:58 --> 00:33:05

Why Allah azza wa jal says resorted to Jamal ADA could get saliva and tissue fill out of the woman from the lab was cool like if you're gonna lie under

00:33:07 --> 00:33:08

what's called Allah

00:33:10 --> 00:33:12

because he or Allah Allah come to free home.

00:33:13 --> 00:33:15

And then And then he says,

00:33:17 --> 00:33:27

Well, you there are ot zyada 10 Ola who went in fact the Wailea when they see some type of business that they want to be involved in some type of amusement they run to they run to it.

00:33:30 --> 00:33:31

And that's why Allah azza wa jal

00:33:33 --> 00:34:15

ends that particular I will tell Rococo chi Mei says and they leave you standing there and he's talking about the prophet Isaiah so like to stay in because there was an incident where he's given a quote, and then a and then some of the Sahaba left on Calma and the line Chiron in Allah humanity, what Allah was with Allah is better than any amusement in any business, any type of genre that a person is going to do any type of tree will love who highroad was clean and Allah azza wa jal wants to remind us that He is the one that is the best provider. So don't leave off the salon don't leave off his obedience for that. That type of business is failure. Just want to notice that this theme is

00:34:15 --> 00:34:25

throughout the Quran where Allah azza wa jal is referring to believers as as merchants in the sense that you can either do business with Allah azza wa jal, either business or shape line alongside

00:34:26 --> 00:34:26


00:34:27 --> 00:34:56

They are among the successful merchants, ma has made a video made of all the billions to be their trading livelihood, from which they yield the greatest profits. So law has been prescribed in such a manner that the entire body follows the lead of the heart so that each limb practices individual acts of worship, demonstrating the servitude to a law. So the heart is the leader as we've talked about before,

00:34:57 --> 00:35:00

and the body follows the heart

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

it save him say Ibrahim Allah. He saw a man playing with his beard and salah. He said Lo, Hashem, Honey Boo had

00:35:11 --> 00:35:32

le Hashem right? Allah whoa shaman alchemy. So he said that, oh call Akasha God Whoa, if this person is heart had been cautioned, been focused, then present, then all of his limbs would have been, would have fallen in line, basically all of the limbs will fall in line.

00:35:33 --> 00:35:50

So when you see like, or even if you feel from yourself that you like being fidgety and select and recognize as a heart thing, and draw back in, refocus Namshi these are the category of people with realize the grace of the world

00:35:51 --> 00:36:00

and have understood the true purpose behind the creation of their lens. And therefore, they dedicate their lens

00:36:11 --> 00:36:57

and they dedicate their dens worshiping their lord to they dedicated them to worshiping worshiping their Lord, all the while safeguarding them from being involved in matters that may displace him. So they fulfill the duties and responsibilities of the servitude to Allah. Number two, alright, so these people claim says, These category of people, number one, they understand the purpose behind the creation of the limbs, right, this is this is the first thing they understand. And as a result of that understanding, then they do what dedicate their lives to the worship of Allah subhana data and, and they safeguard the lambs from disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala played category number

00:36:57 --> 00:37:23

two, to those who utilize their dens in pursuit of what they have, what they have not been created for, and dedicate them to committing sins and disobeying Allah. They are the ones whose endeavors fail and whose trade is never successful. And because of that, they deserve Allah's punishment and wrath, and are precluded from receiving His pleasure and reward.

00:37:25 --> 00:37:26

You Yeah.

00:37:27 --> 00:38:03

Yes, those who completely suspend their lens from engaging in any kind of productive activity, they neither serve a purpose for which they are created, nor use them in obtaining the good of this worldly life due to their ignorance and idleness. This group is even worse than the previous group. Because mankind is created to worship and obey and not for incapacity and impotence. Alright, stop right there. So group number one, how would you describe them? These people are obedient disobedient, what?

00:38:04 --> 00:38:24

Number one, these are allies, which obedient servants like number two, how would you describe them? disobedient? Treacherous, nasty? Five? Number three, useless five? If you don't pay him says this group. Alright. Who is this group?

00:38:26 --> 00:38:32

Look at it. Number three. The useless ones is even worse than the previous group. Who's the previous group?

00:38:34 --> 00:38:35

Disobedient wise?

00:38:36 --> 00:38:38

Hmm, what you think about that?

00:38:39 --> 00:38:50

You agree? What kind of neighbor would you like to have? I mean, let's just think about what which one would you rather have as a neighbor, somebody who's is lazy, useless, or somebody that is like, causing problems?

00:38:55 --> 00:39:01

Wow, that's let's think I need you to think through. This is not an easy part of the book, by the way. So understand what is the little claims?

00:39:07 --> 00:39:12

Maybe the neighbor can be a bad neighbor, but he could eventually be a good neighbor. All right, we'll get there. So

00:39:14 --> 00:39:22

I just want I just want you to think about it. Because the immediate reaction is that wait a minute, if that group did disobedience, oh, Allah.

00:39:23 --> 00:39:27

And these ones are just useless, then why are they worse? All right, keep going.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:58

In fact, the most despised people to allow on the useless type, were neither productive in this life, or endeavor to have a share in the year. They are condemned in every sense. Alright, so let's let's break this down. So he says the most despise people will lie the useless type who are neither productive in this life, nor endeavor to have a sheep share in the hereafter. So what are we understanding about group number two right now?

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


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

they at least have some productivity there's at least some productivity coming from them.

00:40:11 --> 00:40:35

Mr. Over the allotted time there No, he used to say in the outcry and our modular fairly big about this. I hate it when I see somebody's just idle doing nothing. Left Yamuna dunya well if you ask Allah he's not doing anything that's benefiting his dunya and he's not doing anything to benefit his his hereafter

00:40:36 --> 00:40:39

following just think about this for a second.

00:40:40 --> 00:40:42

Alright, so this person is just

00:40:43 --> 00:40:45

playing video games all day.

00:40:46 --> 00:41:15

Chabad know what that's like, just doing nothing? What are you doing? I'm just winding down winding down for six hours. I work us winding down. What have you worked? How does that even? How does that? How does that make any kind of sense? Now, let's let's look at this for a second because I think this is important to be able to understand it. So why does imminent claims say that this second group is actually better than than the first group? I mean, sorry, then the third group. Why does he say that?

00:41:16 --> 00:41:22

Because at least is there some level of productivity involved? I want us to think about it like this.

00:41:23 --> 00:41:26

Okay, you got a guy. You got a guy.

00:41:28 --> 00:41:31

He comes in he feeds homeless people

00:41:33 --> 00:41:36

running for office. Why is he feeding the homeless people?

00:41:39 --> 00:41:44

He wants to get elected. Right? He wants to get elected, is there's no class. He's not even Muslim. Right?

00:41:45 --> 00:41:55

No class at all. He's doing it because he wants people say he's generous. All he takes care of the people, whatever. Is that a good deed or a bad deed? I mean, if we look at it from the sliding scale

00:41:58 --> 00:42:24

it's bad. It's bad because his intention is his intention is no good. Tension is no good. Is it beneficial? Yeah. There is a benefit to to the community in a sense. So is let's just say there was a Muslim let's turn around, let's say it was a Muslim. Is what that Muslim doing halal or haram? is haram? Because it's, it's total Riyadh. Right. And that's haram. In fact, this is a minor former shift.

00:42:26 --> 00:43:07

Is it beneficial? Yeah. It's beneficial to him now. But to the people that he's feeding, yes. It may even be beneficial to the Muslims. It's like oh, muscles, why somebody out, they feed people, you know, are they good people? Right, it may be beneficial. I want to start understanding that everything that is haram is entirely void of a benefit. Lies. It's also in the Quran about how many what makes you Kulfi Hema is one Kebede woman if your willingness is a great sin in in in his benefit for people. What is Muhammad as well, whenever he men, but the sin that's involved in it is greater than is greater than the benefit. And that's why it's important to understand this the

00:43:07 --> 00:43:20

nuance that comes with actually studying your deen you start to realize that just because something is beneficial, doesn't automatically make it halal. You have to look at also

00:43:22 --> 00:43:29

the drawbacks, the cons to it. And if the cons the drawbacks outweigh the benefit, then it is not going to be Hello.

00:43:30 --> 00:43:34

Likewise, there is some things that are halal, which may bring about harm

00:43:35 --> 00:43:59

doesn't mean it does not mean that that thing ceases to be halal, right? Although men often give the example of polygyny, right, having a second wife or third wife, Is it harmful? As the first wife she'll tell you? She'll say, yes, it's brought about some harm, no doubt. As to kids, they might tell you the same thing.

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

Well, I can what if the benefit outweighs the harm and the benefit to society of the system of polygyny, no doubt about it outweighs the harm. No doubt about

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

does that mean every single individual notice a different story for a different day, but the system as a whole, the benefit outweighs the harm, and there's some harm involved.

00:44:23 --> 00:44:29

That shouldn't be denied. But the benefit outweighs the harm. And that's why it is

00:44:30 --> 00:44:58

it is important to understand so I'm reading and Allah Subhana Allah knows best from whatever no Cayambe is saying here is obviously to find a human being that is totally just totally corrupt. Totally Wicked. That's rare. That's rare. So what he's saying here about those who use the lens in pursuit of what they have not been created for, yeah, and that this may be the majority of their half the day that they're doing things that are haram or whatever.

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

But, but they're not completely impotent like, like group number three. And here's the here's the other interesting parts panela group number two,

00:45:11 --> 00:45:15

if they are blessed to be called to this lamb and to

00:45:16 --> 00:45:31

this hope, right, there's hope that they and group number three Muslim camp, whatever they are they just gonna be lazy and empty, do nothing Subhanallah now keep my person if a person is gonna win these endeavors

00:45:33 --> 00:45:46

is dedicated but this LED only and he will without a doubt be more condemned and be a greater failure when his endeavor is dedicated neither for this life nor

00:45:47 --> 00:46:23

so is that clear. So if a person is like a person who just does everything they do just for the dunya that's the main concern and everything like that. Right? And that person is, is blameworthy, but that's not a person that is looked upon with favor from a from a legislative perspective from the same perspective if that person is condemned and what about the person who's not doing nothing is doing it or he's doing nothing for his hereafter then that person is even worse. This is what it is saying. I hope that inshallah now when you go back to the questions question number one you'll be able to understand it well question number two inshallah time now.

00:46:25 --> 00:46:51

Yes, 1.5. This is you got to keep your three categories in mind. Right, your first category is real believers, using their heart and their limbs for obedience of Allah Subhana Allah. The second category is treacherous people, right, and they are using their heart and their limbs to disobey Allah hands out. And then the third category is the negligent idle folks in Oklahoma is going to go and give us a little bit more

00:46:52 --> 00:46:54

information about all of them in shallow title publishing

00:46:56 --> 00:47:02

three types of people. Example of the first type is that the man was granted a suspicious land to find

00:47:04 --> 00:47:52

with all the instruments of need, that is tools, seeds, and water to help him in his work. As we prepare to land for farming, he planted all the various types of vegetation. And then he submitted then he surrounded the land with a big fence and hired guards to protect it, he kept a constant watch on his farm and looked after it, fixing any soil but replacing dead plants with fresh ones, removing the harmful weeds that go around his trees and spending from the property gained from selling its harvest towards its maintenance. Alright, so let's break this down. So And mind you, Inshallah, very soon, it'll claim is going to go into what this book was written for, which is for

00:47:52 --> 00:48:33

us to understand how to unlock the treasures of Salah and it's gonna get deep, but we got to get through this these preliminary matters and shallow time, right? And then the rest of this entire chapter, which is more than half the book chapter one is more than half the book. The rest of this chapter is going to be dedicated to those secrets like for example I'm gonna I'm calling them secrets because he calls it that simple salon so forth. But in other words, why we'll do before to salon and why facing the Qibla and why saying Allahu Akbar, and what should you feel when you do that is to attack and then he has a whole I don't know 30 pages or so dedicated to swords and Fatiha

00:48:33 --> 00:48:37

law. I made it exaggerated but a long section dedicated to fattier

00:48:38 --> 00:49:05

it's not 30 He's about 15 beats. But the whole point is before I forgot I was just thinking about before we get there, we got to get through some of these preliminary matters to understand where do we fit into all of this? Can we like each one of us has to look at my category 123 Where am I? Right where's my heart? So number one is this category of mindful folks, the Motoki

00:49:07 --> 00:49:39

Who are they let's go through this like let's not just read this and skip over so he says a man who was granted spacious land to farm so on and so forth. Number one and becoming from amongst that group is to recognize the favor realize that you have been granted a gift he says then he was supplied with all the instruments of need so tools seeds and water to help him in his work what is his work

00:49:42 --> 00:49:59

No, no here I'm saying what's his work? The farm the land, it's got it he's got a farm land. Alright. So you recognize the gifts he said he supplied with tools. So you have to know what you need to benefit from the gift. Okay, so if we look at this gift as being Salaat or eBay

00:50:00 --> 00:50:10

Add as a whole, you have to know what tools do you need to be able to benefit from that gift that was given to you. And then you have to utilize the favors.

00:50:11 --> 00:50:16

You have to utilize those favors. So Allah azza wa jal gave me certain favors, and you got to put them to work.

00:50:17 --> 00:51:00

So he says then is different types of vegetation, right, he says very types of vegetation. So if you think about that, from the baddest standpoint, each season, from a farmer standpoint, each season has its fruits, its crops, you don't plant everything all at the same time. Right? Watermelon in one season, strawberries a different season, right? Every plant has different seasons. And likewise acts of a bad have the seasons, Ramadan has a season, the first 10 days of the hedges the season, they throughout the year, okay. And then he hires guards to protect it right and says he puts a big fence and he hires guards to protect it. Why is that?

00:51:07 --> 00:51:23

Because you don't want to what lose the favor. If you recognize that as a favorite, you don't want to lose it. So you start doing those things that are going to protect it will lie. And I'm just throwing an example, when a person tastes the sweetness of kamma, late, right?

00:51:24 --> 00:51:25

Present taste that sweetness.

00:51:27 --> 00:51:38

Like like some of the Southern who, it took them 20 years they get there, but then they taste it. Okay. And then they don't want to lose that favor. So you know what they don't do?

00:51:39 --> 00:51:41

They don't hang out late at night.

00:51:42 --> 00:51:50

They don't, because they don't want to, they don't want to lose that particular favor. Or like you said, for example, they avoid

00:51:51 --> 00:52:13

sins that they know are going to have that kind of effect that would make it make it be likely that Allah azza wa jal is going to remove the love of that thing from their hearts, for example. Right. And so once you recognize the favor, you start putting up guards in place, that are not that are going to protect that favor.

00:52:14 --> 00:52:27

You pray Fudger in the masjid? And is the feeling that you get when you pray? So lots of fudging in the masjid. So you put up the guards and make sure be in the lead that you're not going to lose that favor. Right.

00:52:28 --> 00:52:33

So So then he says, And he keeps a constant watch.

00:52:34 --> 00:52:50

weeding it when necessary, right? That's that, that auditing process that has ever right where you are taking account of what's there, and removing anything that's having a negative impact on the favor that Allah azza wa jal has blessed you with.

00:52:52 --> 00:53:06

All right, and then he sells some of the harvest. And he uses the profit uses the profits from that, to do maintenance. And so, this is where you are doing maintenance of that favor.

00:53:07 --> 00:53:22

Whatever a bad it is that Allah azza wa jal has blessed you to do in the sense of the salon. So is important because their steps their steps to making sure that that You are mindful that you're from that first category, type second category. So

00:53:25 --> 00:53:37

the example of the second type is like a man who after he got his hands on the man made it into a sanctuary for dangerous beasts and animals, a site for dumping corpse

00:53:38 --> 00:53:53

and rotten bodies, and a hideout for thieves and every evil and abusive person. Even worse, he put all that he had been given to help come to find the land at the surface of the Evil Ones dwelling on it.

00:53:57 --> 00:53:58

The third type is

00:53:59 --> 00:54:46

no good example of the third type is like a man who neglected the land and wasted the water in the desert and became grateful afterwards. So second type, they use an effort for evil purposes. Same same land, same, same area. This one's got two acres, that one's got two acres this one is mashallah growing crops and doing good things with it and protecting it and the other one is like inviting all types of evil into the land. And then the third one is just letting them go to waste. Yeah, these these examples represent the types of people those who are in mind, the purple people of Treasury, and the heedless ones, respectively. The mindful ones are always ready and prepared to fulfill the

00:54:46 --> 00:54:59

purpose which they're created, unlike the treacherous ones will betray the trust placed in them and the people of negligence and eat but the profit is science was Sadam used to make a

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


00:55:04 --> 00:55:11

that is important to memorize. He used to say sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is a common saleable Hardy

00:55:14 --> 00:55:19

he used to say a llama in the elderly come in and hem me well hasn't. Okay, so those are

00:55:20 --> 00:55:22

those are the first two things.

00:55:24 --> 00:55:26

He said oh Allah I seek refuge in You

00:55:27 --> 00:55:34

from anxiety and grief Ahem. Well hasn't what's the difference between anxiety and grief?

00:55:37 --> 00:55:56

Thinking of something bad's gonna happen. Okay, so right anxiety is is some fear of something that may happen in in the future. Grief is about something that has already happened in the past. So, a llama in the eye will become an alarm me well how hasn't

00:55:57 --> 00:56:01

well lads z one Kesan

00:56:02 --> 00:56:03

I Geez. What?

00:56:05 --> 00:56:10

Yeah, inability. Okay. And Castle is is laziness.

00:56:12 --> 00:56:19

Castle is laziness. put a circle around those two because those are the ones that we really want to want to focus on here.

00:56:20 --> 00:56:38

Elijah's is an ability because a person like either doesn't have the physical capability to do something. And Castle is the there's no willpower. They can but they just they don't have the willpower. He says well Buckley well juban

00:56:41 --> 00:56:42

00:56:43 --> 00:56:44


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

00:56:50 --> 00:56:51


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

or Gibney?

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


00:57:00 --> 00:57:17

Then the Prophet I saw as I was saying, when I say what Bella Dane what what? What dollar a day will collaborate to region and from the burden of debt and oppression of men? The burden of debt and the oppression of men

00:57:18 --> 00:57:19

is so hard

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


00:57:23 --> 00:57:50

so it's been okay in my humble low Titus since even Oklahomans are shaped for this book, I want you to Subhanallah we don't have time to go through all of this but but you can take the beginning of the sentence and then we can talk about it maybe you remind me later maybe later on. I'm not going to lie they after this hadith he says a llama in the elderly communal agency Wilkerson ability and laziness. He says well who Matt miftah who Kulish

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

those two and ability and laziness are the key

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

that opens up every evil

00:58:02 --> 00:58:11

warriors do and Houma Alamo while has no while job no will book lower dollar or they will holla butter leader

00:58:12 --> 00:58:23

from those two it opens up the door springs from them your anxiety, grief, cowardice stinginess

00:58:25 --> 00:58:33

the overcome being overcome with debt and being oppressed by men all of it come from lies will come

00:58:34 --> 00:58:54

from an ability and laziness for most dogs who had kulula analyzed the one castle and that's inside of my head you can go back to Inshallah, if you please and look away and okay himself because he explains how each one of them come from you either being too lazy or being enabled.

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

inability, okay,

00:59:00 --> 00:59:02

we only have four minutes

00:59:03 --> 00:59:04


00:59:05 --> 00:59:11

I'm going to read I'm going to read the page 20 I'm going to read page 24 We gotta get through this, this part right?

00:59:12 --> 00:59:16

He says the affairs of righteous people are we see at the bottom of 23

00:59:17 --> 00:59:36

be it their repos or activity, repos means that they're not doing something okay. Or their activity upon taking a bite of food or sip of drink, in their words, or when they're silent in a state of sleep or awakening is always earning them rewarding counted in their favor. Which group is this?

00:59:37 --> 00:59:57

The first group mindful folks, and their worship and remembrance of Allah draws them nearer to Allah. and contrast the actions of the people have what does it say here? heedlessness crossed that out? That's a mistake. Should say treachery. Okay, group number two,

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

which is group number two and contract

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

As the actions of the treacherous ones, are recorded against them and bring them nothing but failure and loss, not to mention distancing them from Allah.

01:00:13 --> 01:00:25

And the actions of it says what those who betrayed cross that out and put the heedless or the negligent the actions of the heatless

01:00:26 --> 01:00:40

are performed while they are engulfed by their inadvertent see and dominated by their idleness and recklessness. That may be idling, idleness and negligence. Play.

01:00:41 --> 01:01:19

We just keep going just to finish this page 24. So we can start at 1.6 which is the secret and s essence of Salah and this is where it starts, start getting into the meat of this treaties. The Grace surrounding the first group is a natural result of the obedience and act of worship, while the misery of the second group is a natural result of their transgression and treachery. Because Allah did not grant them all that they have Jani, that is the limbs and these favors that he has given them. He didn't grant them these things in order that they use it to disobey Him. This is something that we should always keep on our minds. Do not use allies or widows favorites to, to disobey,

01:01:22 --> 01:01:56

which is betrayal of the trust assigned to them by Allah and the heedlessness of the third group, as a result of their being unmindful and driven by the abase desires. Therefore, their their failure and loss are notable as they waste their lifetime serving their own pleasures and overlooking the best of all trades, which is what trading with Allah you'll Lydian Amendola du loup commodity gelatin tune G comb man has ever been led. Oh, you old people of faith shall not inform you of a trade.

01:01:57 --> 01:02:47

Some business that will save you from a a great torment. The wisdom behind the lies was your calling his believing slaves to the ritual of Salah five times a day is to manifest His mercy upon them. Hence, he has facilitated for them within it. A diverse abundance of actions and rites of worship, so that his believing slaves may enjoy the reward of every word of every action. Every silence, I think there's parts of the salon where you are silent. In every movement, that is practice in the salon. It is a manifestation of Allah Subhana Allah has mercy as we'll cover later, because between Salawat a person's heart begins to what it begins to dry up again. Right, and it has to be moistened

01:02:48 --> 01:03:05

with the clouds of mercy from Allah subhanaw taala they only come they only come in a saliva. So just as the heart begins to get dry, and needs to be watered, there we are called back to the salon. And it's an obligation because as we all know,

01:03:06 --> 01:03:25

those things that are not obligations we do them sometimes, and we don't do them other times if we ever do them. And Allah azza wa jal out of His mercy made it an obligation because we need it because we need it and those things that we need the most, Allah Subhana Allah makes them the most available.

01:03:26 --> 01:03:33

And inshallah Tada we'll talk more about this next week with the nightside ahead of Allah animus Allah with some robotic and then Amina Muhammad
