Especially marriage scholars have categorized so needed to three different categories. Because they feel that this is easier, because the first category that we talked about, which is knowledge and information
can actually be broken down into two further categories. So you single out the lowest amount either as the creator, the Sustainer, the manager of the heavens and the earth, what is known as
his Lordships panel attack, that he is the only Lord He is the one that is in control.
He is the creator of the human being, He is the creator of the universe, He is the creator of causes and effects. This is an important thing to recognize, by the way, we'll cover this later and show him when we talk about different aspects of should, which is the opposite of
that alive somewhere a joke to the causes and effects.
What's that mean? That means that the only reason
then fire burns something is because a lies or a joke created by him to have the effect to burn
out otherwise, the velocity data does not want it to burn, something is not going to burn. Do we have a clear example of that? clear example, Brian.
What happened when he
was thrown into the fire, I lost my dad and told the buyer
Ralston was selling at a garage.
were even on it. So even though he was thrown into the fire by his people to buy didn't do anything to them, because a large window is the creator of causes and effects. Now, most of these causes and effects. We call in our language, we call it major
natural things, right. So if it gets on something, it was, except for the fact that you may put something
like fingernail polish on so the water hits the nail, it doesn't actually wet it because there's something preventing
the point is we know causes and effects, they are more like what we would call natural phenomena, right?
However, and this is important for us to understand as well, that there are certain
aspects of of our being
that because of our faith, we have to go beyond where we see to be natural causes and effects that realize that a larger account is in fact the creator of constant effects. So
if you want your vote to increase,
what do you do
your best if
you are some smart kind of business, right? Because you want your wealth to increase. You want to live longer, you go to the doctor, the doctor says, okay, you want to live longer, you got to start eating better cut out the bad fried foods, and you got to get better sleep, good night's sleep is important. Get your eight hours in every night.
This is the doctor's advice, because it's not a Muslim doctor because you're gonna be
eight hours a night. But the point is, the doctor tells you all these nice things. And if you don't want to live long,
you walk out the doctor's office will get hit by cars.
Your time is already determined. But
these aren't natural causes and effects except that
the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam
speaks on his own desires, there was only revelation that was revealed to him, Thomas whoever wants to live longer, and wants his wealth to increase them Yes, if
they let him do what
ties with his family.
There are good times with his family and his life will be longer and his work will increase as a cause and effect relationship. And allies were jealous, the creator of the effects which is that you live longer and that your wealth increases. And he's the creator of the cause, which is what to keep in good times with your family.
And so this is part of acknowledging a loss lordship that He is the creator of everything.
The other category with a categorize that one category to break that down into two is the total eat of smells spent another word to single out a lot as a joke to acknowledge and affirm his uniqueness as it relates to his names and his attributes.
And that is part of tau e why because what is so neat again, is to single out to acknowledge them
wanting to have something nice to eat.
So for example, you may have a friend.
You may have a friend, his name is Shu jack, that's a
name here. salary, jack. It means what?
courageous is great.
And he might be a scaredy cat. Maybe somebody who's not courageous at all scared of his own shadows.
If anything happens, he's the last one to get there. He's afraid of the dark, he's afraid of heights is afraid of everything. But his name is Shu. Yeah.
You have another friend His name is pretty generous. He's the stinkiest person you know.
But his name is pretty
large with those names and I like that
a lot. So it tells us that
he is generous. And the name of a large hotel
has a an attribute that is directly associated with the NPC directly associated with this name. So his name is Al Karim. That That means that Allah subhana wa tada is generous when you get down members who are allies with Joe's hands are in steady college and he has a line mahmudullah
ad. Allah says that if you said that a lot as someone else and is restrained
meaning that a lot of new adult doesn't get stingy
or lies when Joe says no His hands are extended. And especially in this month of Ramadan, we see the generosity of Allah subhana wa Tada. Like you see it no other time during the year.
and Allah is
the one who hears everything we hear as human beings.
You can hear my Salah, and if you put a speaker up like they do right now so you can hear very hard down and you can hear blocks down.
But if you are
if you were a young boy,
I don't know 100 miles from here or less. You're not can't hear somebody talking if you are outside the messenger right now. And somebody was talking to his friend in the messenger with no aids No, like speaker or anything like that. You can hear anything that they were saying even though you can see that they talk but you can't hear what they're saying. So we have limits to our hearing. A lot of what y'all has no limits.
And that is why I shut off the alarm time that I had
us to praise the loss of power China in many ways. Praise Him as being a semi
semi alone hola Lindsey. to jack up Sofia protests tequila, Allah azza wa jal in meeting her the one who came to you complaining about her husband, he told me a long time and he was right there. She was right there in the same house.
But she had no idea she didn't hear what the woman was saying. And that's why I don't think a long time and have raised the last panel title you heard her a lot when Joe hears everything and this policy is unique for us in Panama attack
the enemy in the context of Ramadan I look man that is what you guys had an end in the party.
If you're if you're a black servants asked you
about me, tell them I'm near Home Depot. That was the day that I answered the call of the one who calls upon me, what do you call
and that also means that you shouldn't
make plans anyone else because they can hear you.
Or watch what you're usually they don't
even nonprofit is selected.
When we give him the sedan,
the promise of why he was so upset in the length
malach gets into say he you bet the Buddha in which he has said in a law has angels that traveled around the Earth. They conveyed to me the Salaam of my alma mater, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam yours you directly.
And when we say something a lot, Sallam that says we're not talking directly to the Prophet either is like to say, we're asking Allah to send it to somebody so that the private messenger solomani it was, so was so near.
And so this is so he we affirm these names and these attributes for our last panel, what's Adam? Oh, so this is the
activity that we're going to be studying in Charlottetown and that he will have to learn
lobby, which is the rite of passage over his creation, and as we mentioned, most of the scholars break down into two categories,
affirmation and, and knowledge. And the second category is to lead us, that is the single out of lies and the devil in your worship. And that is what this book is primarily dealing with. Second off, singling out the last pillar data in our worship
on over time, but
from what I've heard all the time,
and I did not create the jinn and mankind except for them to worship me alone.
So a lot of data. And this I, we briefly discussed yesterday, allies, Magellan in this is clarifies to us the reason
that he created,
he clarifies for us that He created us, and the reason that he created us. And so a loss of power, which I
fear says that that reason was for what, so that we worship Him, and we need a working definition of worship, as we move through the book, so that we can understand why these things need to be for us to China alone, and that they can be for anyone else. So what is the definition of worship? Interestingly enough, the definition of worship does not generally change from language to language.
The definition of worship in the Arabic language is that to them to the left hand over data
effectively do every once in a while it might happen
is that we submit ourselves to Allah,
that we show servitude and subservience to a law that says absolutely, then,
by doing what he has commanded, and by avoiding his prohibition, with reference and adoration,
and this is the same thing that it means in the English language. If you look at English dictionary, you look up the word worship, that's going to talk about some type of
the motional act that one does,
out of reverence and adoration. And as you own, whatever it is that you are worshiping you hold in high esteem that you love it, you work toward it.
And it's important that we understand the concept of worship, so that when we do these acts of adoration, or devotion, that therefore lost power to either alone
in general, in general, something that you show a degree of servitude to you worship that thing?
is it possible that a person be a Muslim?
and worship other than a loss of habitat?
Yes, it is possible that a person be a Muslim, and worship other than Allah and that life after they worship other than Allah, they still a Muslim.
It's a question for another day they woke up, there are minor, and then I'll use this term loosely. There are minor forms of worship that a person may do that does not take them out of the fold of Islam. The Prophet had a selection standpoint, he said, he said, I do the non ferrous has been determined.
May the process of Brexit is the one who worships the de nom, De nada.
It's a form it was the vote that they used, or the time of the prophet Isaiah. So I say that just we're not just in the Arab Peninsula, but but it was a currency that was used outside as well. Theresa,
may the one who worships the one worships the internet as much as we want to worship this bowl of soup.
What does that mean? He worship golden. So it means he puts a stack of gold up and he goes and he prostrates to it. Does that what that means
is it means he puts all his money in a circle and he makes to walk around that is gold and a silver?
No, that's not what it means to worship. It means that the focal point of his life has become what become money. wealth has become the focal point of his life. So therefore, he serves his wealth. Wealth does not serve him
He has become a servant of his walk, even if he bounced to a loss of habitat.
So though in his snack In this scenario, it does not take them outside of the fold of Islam, what a person's focal point in life becomes something, that they are considered to be a worshipper of that thing.
Like we say, in the English language, about a man who does everything that his wife tells him to do, same worship, sir.
Right? That doesn't mean that he vows at her feet, that doesn't mean know what it means that she has become the focal point of his life.
For the sake of arguing, that may not be a bad thing, if your wife is the focal point of your life, but not if it takes precedence over the dinner last
serving your family takes precedence over serving a loss of habitat, not as your work we all everybody, every man in this land is responsible for taking care of his family.
So you're going to go to work.
But you need to ask yourself, your alarm clock is set for what is it set for fudger.
Separate for the set for work.
So if a person is missing budget,
and he starts praying, so locked to the budget at the time, he's supposed to pray, because he needs to get sleep so he can work properly, then now he's putting his work over is he.
And that is scary. Because it could lead the person to worshiping and worshiping other than a loss of habitat in the real sense, the type of worship that will take them outside of the fold of Islam. So that is when we talk about worship, we're talking in general about servitude, subservience that you are submissive to something
with reverence and adoration.
And if that worship is for loss of power tighter than it is by doing what he has commanded us to do, and avoiding his prohibitions, and allies to a joke created us for that reason, he says, at this time, He created us for that purpose, to worship Him and to worship Him alone, some kind of attack. And as we mentioned yesterday, we are the ones that benefit from that version, aligns with them, does that benefit anything from that worship, my God will be known members of our allies would know does not want from us to provide them, nor does he want us to feed him in the long term, or once in a lifetime, Joe is the provider. So
that is the definition of worship that we'll probably be using for the majority of our goal. However, I think it's important to mention, there is another very common definition of worship. It is the definition that was mentioned by shaping this name to take me a long time all alone to Adam. And we should know it because it is common and because it will help you to understand the concept of worship, but even tell me about him, Allah says that worship is is when equal demand capable, lonely, there is a comprehensive term for everything that Allah subhana wa Tada, loves, and is pleased with,
whether that is statements, or actions, or beliefs, whether they be a parent, or entity, all of that takes
the terminology of worship so I'll give you an example.
A lot, a lot worship. Yes. Why?
Based on this definition, because what because Allah Allah loves
us and I love
Because I was the man to to do something, have a law convince you to do something that he that he loves to you to do that is something that he likes or loves. How else do we know that Allah subhanaw taala love something this is important for us to understand that as you read, the more I it will help you to identify certain things
you love that allow us to love somebody when he phrases the people do a certain act, even if there's no direct command to do that.
With your praises to people who do something,
then you know that a lost child and love
also another way that we know that Allah loves an act is if the law says and loves the people who do an act which is different than a person
especially three things so far number one
Allah commands you to do something, or you commands. That's something you've done. And we know. The second one is that a love phrases
that actually are the people who do that.
The third thing is that Allah Allah says he loves the people who do an extra. It's a lie you Tell me, are you
kidding? Allah loves those who repent to him. And he loves it, he loves those who purify themselves.
So we get from that, that Allah loves Toba and that he loves purity, the act of purification. Therefore, sulfur is a bad, it's worse. And purifying yourself is worse.
And we should be thinking about these things. When you go to make Lulu.
It shouldn't just become Monday, use the back, make her do GoPro will do his event.
And if you think about it as a bet,
you're more likely to be conscious of the rewards of Voodoo and why you're making why you're doing what you're doing and why washing up to your elbow.
Because your profit is a lot closer than distance. And you think about the development of your lungs an animal and it's as if you can see the profit it is
making who you are imitating your best and God as
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us
they don't want on in the Hereafter, there is a hole, there's a pot that the believers will drink from.
And that you only come to that time by invitation.
The Prophet is selected to sit in alignment don't get him that time.
Or that basin, if you will. It's his he invites the believers to drink from the companions as the Prophet is selected as today.
How will you know those believers that come after you,
mind you, they know that the Prophet is salatu salam is going to die.
How will the prophet Isaiah survivors today know that believers come after
he will know that from the traces of blue
the body parts that you wash them will do will come white and shine on the Day of Judgment. And so the profit is allowed to snap to recognize this coma.
Because of will do in the law, you didn't tell me when you talk at Allah loves those who repent to him frequently, and those who purified themselves. We need to be thinking about these things. So
don't just turn some handle on this is why some of our scholars Martina Humala.
They used to say that the dn
can turn an act of either something that is normal and customary into an event.
So tonight, after taraweeh when you go to sleep, and you're going to sleep, so that you can wake up for support.
So that you can be
attentive and selective budget that you don't go to selective budget. You're almost falling asleep the memory makes you a little longer than normal. You didn't go to sleep.
And so you go to sleep a little late night so that you can be attentive in your salon. Then Then your sleep is not because you're simply because your time you went to sleep because you want to please allies and we're jealous so that Nia
turns a mundane act like sleeping into an event. Just like your lack of meaning
or a weak intention can turn an act of worship of a last minute data into something as mundane and customers which happens to a lot of people what would you do?
You're just making a lose. It's a very big intention your intention is to make but are you really thinking about the fact that as the water is coming on and dripping off from that with that water it sends the dripping off. Is that is that idea of 87 you know, we talked about the psalm
2711 best the month of Ramadan
about seeking his record, he says
is that there? What we're going to do, for example, is that seeking the wise will Jones records that those things are falling off into
those body parts to shine on, you don't want him to want to emulate your messenger on a celebrity, is that there because this is part of an event. So a badger,
as defined by the TV
is a comprehensive term, but everything that Allah loves, and is pleased with everything.
Whether that's statements, actions, or beliefs,
whether they be hidden or apparent. So we says a lot is a bed. Why? Because Allah commanded us to pray, is to get a better
giving away the cat. Why? Because the last man died and commanded us to give the cat like, Can you see salon?
Can you see?
When someone prays, you can see them pray? Can you see someone use a cat? Yes, like, fear of a loss. That event?
is an event to fear a lot. Yes.
fear of Allah is a bet. Can you see the fear of alone? That it's hidden? So this is what we mean we say both in and apparently. So what? So what are the laws?
That you have true reliance upon Allah?
Can you see now, so welcome is your heart is hidden, but a law student that has commanded us to put our trust in him why level law
upon a law Put your trust, if in fact you are.
So last night data tells us to put our trust in our reliance upon him sukanto attack. And therefore we know that and so what is required there because a lot of data commanded us to do. Therefore, if we put our trust or our reliance upon a human being,
that we have taken an act of worship, that is, should be solely for loss of habitat, and we put it in a human being. And that doesn't mean that you don't trust people that you don't trust their opinion that you don't trust that they're going to do something, it doesn't mean that it means that your reliance your ultimate reliance has to be upon a loss of habitat.
So this is what a lot of damage is mentioned here for masala
Illa. Leah, I have created the jinn and mankind only to worship me. And so this has to be
the theme of our lives because it is the purpose of which we were created. I think that sometimes, you know, it's important for us to recalibrate,
to take really take steps back and analyze the things that you do.
Do they fulfill that purpose?
Some people go to school,
their only objective for going to school is to get
a diploma, something that says that they went to this course.
if they're just in the morning school is to get a diploma. How serious of a student Do you think you're gonna be?
Or maybe it's not school, maybe it's you, you're supposed to notice some kind of professional development workshop, and you have to throw your job, you have to be in attendance. That's the only reason why you can't?
How much have you really gotten out of that course, is that does that person want to be serious? Now, because the only objective is to get a piece of paper that says that they were there. So they go to school, or they go to this professional development workshop. They only phone the whole time
texting, they're not paying attention, maybe goes to sleep. But at the end of the day, they're happy. Why? Because they fulfilled their goal, which was to get a diploma.
Other people go to school to learn.
actually being there is
just something that occurs naturally because they they have to be there to learn their purposes to learn.
Other people go to school to learn and because they want to continue their studies. They want to go to the best university
and in order to get to the best university, they can't just go to classes do good
So you're going to find this person joining a particular, you know, club, the history club,
or they're going to play a sport, particularly because they liked the sport or they like this club, but they need that on their, on their resume or whatever it's so that they can get into the best tool, they have an objective.
Everything else that they are doing needs to be towards that objective.
In school, you have a period is called lunch,
that lunch period.
Are you learning during lunch? Are you doing an extracurricular activity? Not unless you're professional either Other than that, then no. But you need that lunch period, because you need a break.
And that's what helps you to get through the remainder of the day.
Right. So when you evaluate your life,
you have evaluated in similar terms, you're not going to worship a law all day.
Not in the sense of ritual worship, you may get to the point in your life, that a lot of the lessons you that even your idea has changed all of your mundane acts into the back, you might get to that point in life. But in general, what I'm saying is that you still have to go to sleep,
you still going to eat, you're still going to do many things in life that are not considered ritual acts of worship, how would they help you and fulfilling your purpose, which is the worship of a loss of habitat. That is how you have to evaluate life. And this is why the companion handler
or the alongside Andrew, whenever Bucky disappeared for the Aloha, I saw what they saw in his face that he was a bit worried about something preoccupied with something
that he said, so
how are you gonna handle that Napa
handler has become a hypocrite.
And why you say that.
He said, when we are with the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. It's like, we can see Jeff and we can see the whole find products. This is how much certainty we have about our meeting with China, about our purpose in life by what we're supposed to be doing.
But then when we go home to our families, it's not the same way we forget it.
About the alarm timer, and he was disturbed by this.
And he said, I find myself the same thing that you do, we need to talk to the practice of the law. And he was telling me about this. So they went to the Prophet.
And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, if you remain in the state
that you were in, when you are with me, the angels will come down, and they will shake your hands and the total and the pathways in the streets, they would shake your hands, because of the level of the man that you would have reached. He said, Give me a handle aside massage and massage.
However, is that possible? is a time that this is a time for that. And that's how you have to structure your life
based on this stuff, what is your ultimate goal, your ultimate goal has to be the pleasure of Allah turns out that what he created, He created you to worship Him alone.
And therefore the worship of Allah because Allah alone has to be our purpose in life. And everything else revolves around them. Yes, I have to go to work.
But if I go to work them with the intention of providing for my family, because providing for my family is worship of Allah.
Then now that becomes worship.
Now the way I look at my job becomes different because I want to be the last panel data is a Muslim, especially when we are Muslims to work amongst Muslims.
And I want to shine I want to stand down because I want to make your stamp look good. And I know that a lot of our data or that is told the students profit is likely
to be shaped a lot of his regular perfection, that you strive for perfection in what you do.
And so if I am an engineer, then I strive to be the best at it. If I'm a supervisor, I strive to be the best at what I do. If I'm a doctor I strive to be the person or mechanic then I strive to be the best because I'm almost in that striving now becomes a bad thing because the lines are jealous my focal point I want to make a lot of it.
His pleasure in worshiping him a lot, the focal point of my life
is there a portion of my day that I make relaxing? Yes, because I need to relax in order to get stronger you. Just like your muscles when you for those of you who like to work out, that's a trend that somebody, you if you go to the gym every day you work out that same muscle is not going to build it needs time to rest, so that it can build and then you work it out again.
And it's the same thing with your worship of Allah has added that ritual worship, you can't pray all day, it's not gonna work.
You pray that you stop, and you pray again and then you stop and you pray some more. And you make throughout the lesson that you can go from one event to the next. So that you can rejuvenate yourself. But this is what it was to deal with Allah has created a sport and this is what we have to make the focal point of it.
I'm sure that we have sent to every single nation the messenger proclaiming worship Mama, I know we're going to be how old
the second is, that is mentioned under this chapter. This chapter, by the way does not have a title.
And just so that you're familiar with the structure of the book for those of you who are actually studying the book, just to let you familiar with the structure, the author's setup the book the same way that the party setup is.
So, we have sample card right, which is a book
book of honey sibu card
sorry, so hello McCarty will carry with us he says he tab the book up. If you look at for example, the very beginning she tab budget and like the beginning of Revelation, that the tab that book, okay which you can say is a part of the larger book, there are chapters back that chapter chapter chapter, this particular chapter that we are covering, does not advertise all of the rest of the chapters, the other 66 chapters, they all have titles,
this particular chapter does not advertise, but the topic is the obligation of to eat. the obligation of to eat, meaning that totally eat is an obligation upon every individual on the planet Earth.
Okay, so as we look at these, if we want to look at how does this indicate the obligation of toilet, this is the second I was affected by the machine.
We have said Allah says, indeed we have every oma
a messenger proclaiming it will love was sending a father and a mother love us and He will
stay away from rejects the problems.
All right. So we need to look at this. How is this, Tony?
Well, we said to Tony, there's those two categories, right? And one of those categories is to single out of left with no data in your worship.
here Allah azza wa jal says, the law that is a command from Allah worship, Allah was sending her a problem and reject or avoid or shun the problems, what is the problem?
in general, is anything that is worse and besides the loss of habitat,
we can use the word items, for example. So that may not be comprehensive. We can say anything that is worship, besides the last panel data is about I want you to pay attention to this point.
But even that needs to be clarified.
I'll tell you what
is inside is select to select Jesus, if he worshipped
people worship Christ, yes. Is it okay for us to say that Jesus is a problem? No.
So, what we need to look at is that in general,
what is worship besides the loss and that is three categories.
The first is that which has no will
As snow will have its own a statue for example, a tree
or a rock.
There are still people today, who worship trees, who worship statues, these things that they worship has no one will have their own, it is fine for us to call them problems, that's considered to be a taboo. Okay?
The second thing, the second category, that which has a will, I need a human being,
that which has a will, and its needs with being worshipped, besides the loss of habitat.
So you may find, for example, alongside
even amongst some people that call themselves Muslims,
they may worship certainty, they may worship their shape, they may worship a saint.
If that person even if that person didn't command other people to worship Him, and He is pleased with that person, that he is considered a part who
is considered to be apocalypse.
you have that's the second category. The third category is that which has a will.
But it's not
that they are worshipped.
So this is where we look at, for example, our Prophet Muhammad is like you said that you some people worship
is not pleased with that worship.
In fact, Subhana Allah, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was alive, and a man came to him
and he said to the Prophet, sallAllahu, Sallam Masha Allah worship, whatever law wills he wants, you will the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim got very angry, he said, Dad said he didn't like the dead, are you making me a rival with a loss of habitat? Shall I say that Allah wills alone, or say
that a lot of words and say what you don't put me on the same level with the prophet SAW you someone was not pleased with it.
And so, because of that, you cannot say that, because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam just worships
and he is there for a part that
you can never see.
Because the Prophet is not the same as that these verses, he says,
is that the, with the fact that he is worships.
So there are three categories again, that which has no will, that's a talk, and his worship, that which has a will and is pleased with the version, that that one is a toggle. And those people who have, who are not the who are worship, but are not pleased with their worship, we cannot call them toggle, so I was gonna die that says, worship Allah, and shun the talk. Whoops, here
we have. And this is important also for us to stay up until he
and I'm gonna ask you a question.
And I want you by show of hands.
And you have you have the answer, either yes or no.
Does he mean to worship alone? You say yes, raise your hand. So need me to worship alone? Okay.
Fine. Who says no, it doesn't need to worry about
my next question. Just so he needs to worship Allah alone.
Who says no anybody? Like so he means to worship alone, alone.
Why is it important to add alone, that because somebody and even the majority grown in general, they first have a lot and they worship other than alone.
And that's why they will call must be cool. From the ship.
Which if you have a [???]ty like, if you have a business, and you have a charity, that means you have a partner, if you have a shared economy, if you have a company, usually because there's going to be more than one person working in it. So they will call must be cool. Not because they didn't worship Allah. But because they worship Allah and other things along with the last counter. So it's important that we say alone, and that is why at towhees that's why we use the word towhees because it means to single out. You only single out something when there's both
affirmation and negation. And that's why this is important.
So for example, what's your name? i?
Ns. Okay? So if I say ns is sitting down, and it's acidic, then I will affirm that he is sitting down.
But is he the only one sitting down?
If I said, if I said, for example,
only Tennessee city, or NSS city and no one else is sitting now, that is to me.
I've singled him out as the one who is sick.
And that's why when we when we say the Shahada,
we say what?
is no deity. There is no truth. It's
right. First, I negate. And then I say, isn't Lola
except for Allah. So now we are affirming that only a large of a joke is worthy of our worship. He is the only true theists if you don't have affirmation and negation that you are not singling that thing out.
If I said, say he is standing,
all I'm doing is affirming that he is standing. But if I say no one is standing except saved.
Now, that is to me, I've singled him out as the one who was saying, so when I say that there is no true deity except the love. Now I'm singling out a lie. So just as the one who deserves our worship, and this is why, if you look at the message of the messengers,
what the last hour to add to say he sent them for a while a quarterback that we fully match in masuleh nfo, the love was taken
and sent to every nation, a messenger, what did those messengers proclaim their message was the same across the board,
worship Allah and shunga tacos. So you worship the law and you shine everything that is worship, besides a lot of them, that becomes a Tony, you have affirmation and negation. And you will not have to eat unless you have food. And that's a very important point for us to understand. So in the first I have a method to genuineness I have not created in America except the worshipping Allah tells us the reason why
we have been created, and that is to worship Him alone. But so he and then he said, at this time, that he sent a message to every nation, to call them to tell me,
therefore, the means by which a lost count of who created us, the means by which he conveys the purpose of our existence to us is through the message of
support, first understand, so not only that alone, creators,
and creators for this purpose, but send messengers, to convey that purpose. Therefore, the messengers are the vehicle by which Allah Subhana Allah communicates to the children of men.
Why is that important? Because that means that we have to obey their must.
The standard of you know, some people, some Muslims, unfortunately, you might hear them say, oh, there's only certain,
only submissive, and it's only something that the messenger sallallahu wasallam, told us to do.
And who was he conveyed? on whose behalf is he conveyed some of our
Allah, Allahu Allah is the one
who sent him. He is a messenger, meaning that he is conveying a message that comes from the Prophet it. So it says, we should be very careful when we use that terminology and recognize that a lot of times either has sent them for this purpose. And that is the cornerstone of the download of all of the prophets and messengers. Does that mean?
That isn't the only thing that the messages came to convey? was to worship Allah? subhanaw taala? No, no, it doesn't mean that. It doesn't mean that that was the only thing but it means it was the most important thing.
And it means that all of the other things that they can make the prostitute able to select to select. They dealt with issues of social justice, they dealt with issues of character, they dealt with issues of relationships, how you deal with your neighbor, how you deal with your spouse, your children, they dealt with all
the profits dealt with all of these things.
those were secondary men.
Which were built upon the foundation of so many. And that is because
none of these other things that we're talking about the character of generosity and how you deal with your neighbor and upholding social justice, none of these other things are sustainable, nor will they lead to an individual's happiness for success of a society
as a whole,
unless they are grounded and rooted in the desire to please Allah subhanho wa Jalla alone, it is that desire it is that he was truly united people other than that,
if these things are done for other than Allah,
that will become manifest, and it will come crashing down. These other aspects that we talked about the other things that the prophets of Allah called to the did not build, that
they're going to be built on pleasing someone else. And it's really that simple use of knowing what you do to please the last panel down into rushes him, or you're doing it to please another entity, whether that other entity be some boss, God, or whether it be your own ego and your own self gratification.
Or maybe you're motivated by guilt or whatever else it is that motivates you to do what you do if it is not, that I lost the peloton and his pleasure alone is motivated, then that thing is not sustainable.
And that is why the profits again, they're down what to eat, because all of the other things that the profits came with the giving charity, and all of that has to be built on your worship of Allah Subhana mutandis.
And you'll learn as you read about your worship team, and then to be dutiful to your
You're learning the creed, that you worship none but him when we see the two of you here. Worship not budget not that you worship Him that you worship none but him affirmation and negation or negation, and affirmation. And that is Tony, come on up Luca Atlanta boo boo inlet yet, your Lord has decreed that you worship none. But him. And that should be kind of dutiful to your parents. How does this iron indicate the obligation until he
indicates the obligation of Tony because it's a command.
And then the last pounds out of there commands us to do something, then that command becomes an obligation upon us. Unless there's something that indicates otherwise, here and these is and you should go back to sort of them and read these
in these is the lowest paradigm and gives us 18 commands.
The first of those commands is what? To worship none but in. And that is why we know that to me is the most obligatory of all the obligations, because the last time we started these 18 commands, with the worship of him and him alone, which is
why we worship Allah.
Why do you worship Allah?
If a non Muslim came and asked you that question,
why do you worship Allah? What would you answer me?
You need to know the answer to this question.
Why do you worship Allah? Allah, it says here, and he has commanded and decree that you worship Him.
And then he says the meaningful kinds of your parents. Someone asks you why why do you worship? You take a stab at it.
He said the question is Why not?
Like? That's a good philosophical way to debate but we need an answer.
Because the law commanded you to okay. Like Yeah.
Because it's our purpose for existence. Because the last fantastic creative with it yet
because he's a creative type. None of those, all of those answers are correct.
If you combine between them, the fact that he is our
created a lie to a gentleman.
Why is it that you worship Him alone?
Like he said, because he is the one who created us, He is our sustaining. He is our masters, you can have a child and him because he has the most beautiful names and lofty attributes a lot, because he is he deserves to be worshipped because he is alive. He He deserves to be worshipped because he is a rarity. So we worship the last hands out of because he deserves to be worshipped.
And that's basically
what the shakier was saying. He says, Why not worship, look at the qualities that are lost count down as Look at his attributes, he is the one that deserves to be worshipped, he is a summit of
superheroes and he is the one he is the one that you need the terminals, there wasn't an alternative for all of the needs to happen.
And so because of that,
he deserves to be worshipped.
And on top of that, he commanded us to worship. And that is our purpose for existence. And we also worship philosophy. This is a secondary reason.
Because of the blessings that Allah
Our Prophet is
192 his feet
set at the practice. You are praying like this, getting to the point that your feet swell. you're praying like this, even though allies will tell you that has forgiven all of your past and future shortcomings.
What did the Prophet sallallahu wasallam say? He didn't say here, I'm worshiping Allah, because he deserves to be worshipped, though that is the truth. But the prophet myself gave the different reasons. He said that
should not be a brain surgeon.
Should I not take the loss of data for not just the things that he has given me material, but the fact that he has forgiven me for myself and my shortcomings.
Shannon, thanks a lot. For that, should we not show our gratitude to a larger adult who has given us abilities that no one can give us the ability to see the ability to hear should we not think a lot is well known for these statements,
allow for more ammunition.
If you were to try to enumerate a larger, legitimate blessing,
you wouldn't listen, it would be impossible for you to listen to.
So we worship Allah palitana because he deserves our worship. And because he is the one deserving of worship period. And because of lessons that Allah subhana wa tada has given us, a lot of wisdom that says, and we do during those times, your parents
and this shows that our obligation after our obligation to Allah subhana wa tada and those who he has sent to bring his message, that our next obligation is to our parents, to be dutiful to them to be kind to them, if not, for the mere fact that they as allies are intelligent, our Creator,
he made them the cause of our existence.
it is upon us to be beautiful.
Just finished this chapter, so
to speak to the
worship, associate anything with worship a lot, do not associate anything with them, if you finish reading those is which is which are similar in the sense when you finish reading the Hi, this is known as the
local national, or the 10 writes a lot better than 10 rights, that is rights that you that allows you to data has over you rights, that your parents have all the rights that your neighbors have over you, your spouse, so the orphans. So here in this particular if we're talking about these rights, he begins with what right, his right to be worshipped, alone, blah, blah, blah, well
worship alone, but then he stopped there and just say worship alone. No, he said, do not associate anything with him in that worship. So we have an affirmation and that gives you this is so hey, you have to single out a Muslim man
as I say will
come I will explain to you what should note as a forbidden for you that you do not worship and besides that a huge boon to your parents. So, the prophet Isaiah select was Sadam here has been commanded by lions and Magellan, to recite to the people that which
has been prohibitive for them. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, the first thing that aligns with your review, a lens is the movie shade, do not associate anything, and worship with a loss of habitat. So the first command from a loss of habitat is to worship Him alone. And the greatest demand is to worship Him alone. And the greatest prohibition is to associate partners with German words.
whoever wishes to call me otherwise, which will probably still allow some emphasize. And that is really the statement of the law. So your Mohammed cannot explain to you what you're doing as we permitted for, you
know, in this particular narration, which is as soon as eternity, and there's some weakness, and this particular narration, but it's going back to the time, he says, If you want to know,
the advice of the prophet Isaiah is selected, the cinema can be translated as the will of the population, because a will is something that someone writes to leave behind to instruct those who are living after his death. Correct. He says, if you want to look at the very will, that the property or the testament that the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim put his seal upon, what does it mean to put when you put your seal upon something
that is certified? Exactly. You know, if,
if you were if you were working somewhere, and you and you got official notice, but it was open when when it when it came to the envelope wasn't even sealed,
then you would be suspicious about the authenticity of the contents.
Because maybe somebody tampered with it. Everyone
was saying here, if you want to be certain about what it was that the province somebody was telling me that this advice for this oma,
it was these iron elettrico meaning
that you don't commit any ships with a loss of Paradise that you don't associate anything. And as you'll see, when we go along, why is the author going to talk about ostentatious and showing off? Because that's a form of should
start just something to think people think are parents? Oh, wow. You know, I don't think students are statute. I don't prostrate to Buddha or any other No, it's not just that. So that is part of associated parties with the last transaction. There are other things that a person does, when they seek to please other than Allah subhana wa Tada, when they themselves may be falling into a more long ship.
That's why it's important to study these things to know what that won't be, without going into a whole linguistic, you know, explanation. Here you have what is known as an indefinite noun in a
limited context, that is that Eliza gel is prohibiting us from knowing something.
And he's mentioning as an indefinite noun and that they say you feel alone and it means that that means everything that you commit, that you don't associate anything with alone 10 of the time.
So this is those are the five is the recovery and the first chapter. Now there's one thing that we're going to cover in southern China when we finished the first chapter of the book, which is anointed rather than gentlemen lobby please review said I was writing to behind the property some of the property was set up when they dumped it centrally online.
And we went on water right upon lies upon his sleeves, and water right of the slaves in the start, there is nothing
more I thought he alone.
He was wise even who knows.
More I've given
a great campaign of the Prophet it is selected was sent and one of the most knowledgeable of the Sahaba even though he was young. My argument wasn't, wasn't on the Prophet. Somebody was telling him that he was in his 20s at first, but the prophet SAW some of that but he was the one that the Prophet by some sent to Yemen, to teach the people about Islam and that famous heavy, you're going to have people from the people on the boat, right. So for as was young, but he was still knowledgeable, and it was his knowledge that qualified him
Without we shouldn't just say we should send the young people out to give that one up and give it out.
Why didn't give down just because he was young, he was young and he was knowledgeable. The Prophet is selected to sit down and said about. So here he says, One day I was riding with the Prophet, somebody with someone want to dump.
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam says to him, why do you know?
The right that a loss of habitat as of his creation?
And the right sort of creation is
a tragedy man have to look at an event. You know, what a loves writing is over his creations? Now, this is an interesting question.
But it's not a strange question for you, we need to really consider
for you brothers here who are married, if I was to ask you, do you know what the rights of your wife are over you and your rights over her much love. You could break out a pen and paper and start the list, get my right is a b, c. d,
memorize before you even get married.
My rights over my wife.
Okay. More importantly, though, are the rights that she has over you. Because the lines are just going to ask you about your responsibilities. What were you you're supposed to be known
man if she fulfilled your rights, but if you can build hers. So you need to know though, because relationships are built upon rights and responsibilities.
The rights of that person become your responsibility, and your rights upon left become their responsibility. Alliance. Adele is our master, we are this ladies. That's a relationship. And that relationship is built upon rights and responsible responsibilities. Not because our lives are a job or just anything, but because the last time it took upon himself
to give us something if we fulfill the rights that he has over us.
And so this question from the prophet Isaiah SelectUSA, then,
is a question about rights and responsibilities. Do you know what rights the last panel data has opened? It's very important, because once you know that right, as a slave,
and you will strive to fulfill that right now.
obviously is, isn't the worship Him alone, and do not associate anything with tight staffing, then the right that Allah has over all of his slaves is that they worship Him alone, and that they don't associate anything with him in that worship. And that is called activity. So the right that a lot of that as upon us is to lead that we worship him a lot, man.
The right of the slaves upon him is that he does not punish anyone who does not associate anything with you. Right. And so unless paradigma has made it a duty upon himself, not that he owes it to us, but it is a duty that he put upon himself the same way. You know, the baby's heartbeat, the prospects of the progress on a marriage. So happy. He says that a loss of can which it says in the heart run to a full month and I've seen I have made oppression, wrong doing harm upon myself.
Which I will move on aroma. And I've also made it between yourself like so here the province of like Southern says to one
that the right that we have over law.
The right that his slaves have over him is that he will not punish
anyone who avoid associating partners and worship with
do not confirm them. They still rely upon this promise and lapse in your service.
What is agreed upon the
party was like this heavy was collected by the party. What's the inclusion of this heavy inclusion of the captain,
who was with the prophets of light he was selling the he's hearing this man that Wait a minute, and we uphold this right of a loss of power that alone will not punish us. There's only two
In other words, if we avoid should we don't associate any partners with a loss mentality, we uphold this right of a loss, along with our punishes, meaning that we will adjust.
Should I not important people, can I give them these glad tidings, this was a happy day from wise wouldn't be allowed to hear this because now he knows if I just focus on making sure that I get everything else out the way, not just statues and these other kinds of items, but I get rid of my ego, and I get rid of it, I get all these things out the way. And I work with a lot of fans out
there a lot. So Joe, will give me a shot, let the people know, the problem. Somebody was gonna say that.
Don't tell them this.
Tell a technique. So they won't rely upon this information, perhaps even missing, understanding it.
And then not striving for the worship of
the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was he was
he was compassionate and merciful. With this open, he wants us to strive.
And so if a person thinks that Wait a minute, and one person misunderstands,
and they think that Wait a minute, all I have to do is not coming ship.
You know, all I have to do is not worship, and I Oh,
then also the gentlemen, that may lead to them a decrease in their strike the same way.
In some kind of law, because we're in the month of Ramadan, you can use a lot of the Ramadan examples. The same way we don't know and labor to determine
what happens if a person knows exactly when Lila
panela. Let's just say it was the 25th
is lazy, lazy, lazy,
lazy, let's take a moment to show
more superior better than 1000 months.
I just skip a few days here and there. Because this night is going to make up for everything I've done wrong.
And I'm going to go all out. And what happens if you don't try the same way in the other nights the same way. And this is normal. This is natural, by the way.
The same way we tried in the last 10 nights away, we don't try these things.
You're not supposed to the province of Microsoft himself.
He has won
in the last 10 nights. Because he was he wanted to make sure
that he was in seclusion during the time when it was possible to be late to the car. So even our profit on these slides was increased. In event actually alone China said that what the last 10 nights and
the profit that is selected person stayed awake the entire night.
I know he stayed awake the entire
well a lot. And lo and he woke up his family he was awake in his family, which indicates that perhaps during the other times, he may allow them to sleep he may allow them to give their respiratory the last time to get up and worse. What sets them in zero. Any
tied up is is a song which has two different interpretations. One is similar to our English term out when we say he rolled up his sleeves was that he
got serious, right? Shut them in can take that meeting.
He got serious about everything. And it can also mean time that he's on
to revert to literally tying in tight meaning that he avoided any contact with his any marital, you know, relationship.
The point is that the province of Wales Philip told, ya know, don't tell them such that they would rely upon this. But why bother? You know, at some point, obviously, there is honey collected by the party and Muslim has come to us and it's the famous honey. And we shouldn't misunderstand to just mean that we'll ever oppose the bare minimum of totality that he will be from amongst the people of Paradise who don't are not punished by loss of Paradise because we eat as a bare minimum and then they
Our levels. And that's what we want to talk about tomorrow in the leg data when we get to chapter two, below.
Any questions? We'll take them down, and sorry for going over today.
worshiping me, okay. So the question says, What is the difference between worshiping and obeying? Now, if you remember when we talked about the definition of worship, we talked about in general, that there is servitude, or subservience along with adoration, and along with adoration and reverence, meaning that you love this thing and that you revere this thing. All right. So
you, for example, as you're driving down the street,
a red light comes, you do what
you say, you are obeying the law, you're not worshiping the law. You're obeying the law, in the sense because you are, obedience means compliance, that you comply with the rules and those and regulations. It does not mean necessarily that you love the one who made the money that you own them in,
you know the to revere them, that you're bettering them that you avoid.
Or it doesn't even necessarily mean that you are subservient to them. You comply with these rules and regulations, because they are beneficial for society as a whole. Other than that, we obey our parents, for example, and we love our parents, but we obey them because the last count data has commanded us to do so. And so it is from the worship of the last hands out and that we obey His messengers that we obey our parents. And that is not considered to be worship.
Who is the messenger for
us? The question is that the question says, who was the messenger for Hindus, and the Buddhists, Allah says, Allah says, they accepted every nation, every oma message did not say every people who gathered together to follow a religion.
And so the messengers, who were sent to other nations meeting for x want to say that black Hindus or Buddhists, but who was the messenger for the Indian people, for example, or for,
let's say, Chinese people must have Allah knows best, because he did not inform us, or those messengers are in the run our messages, so a lot of it was selected, as important as some variations about which case if there was an opinion, but that there were up to 124,000 profits, if
that's the case, those profits and messages in the last time that I said, was sent to every company.
What was preserved, from the message, from the messages? What was important, all of that is in the crime is nothing that was sent to the prior nations, whether that be Jews or Christians or any of the other peoples of the earth, because they received revelations as well, that's something else was not understanding. Allies did not just reveal in looking there, that's the brand.
The NGO was not revealed an Arab that so wrong was not revealed in Arabic. Allah, God has sent messages to other peoples, those people, people of China and India what it was for a building the language that they understood,
and perhaps what we see from Eastern philosophies and the echo that remains, perhaps some of that is what was preserved from what came to them of their lessons.
And what benefit but we have as a people today, who are instructed to bother the blind, so know that the prophet of China at one particular time was this person on the prophet of India at this particular time of the prophet of South Africa at that particular time.
The Prophet for all of mankind, after Muhammad Ali was
the prophet of a gang and he's the one that we need to study and know about and learn about his life and hold him in esteem.
