Mohammed Abdullah sola sola body. While he was happy he was
yesterday's class, we started talking about the importance of making dry in the month of Ramadan do as important in the life of a Muslim.
There's no day that goes by except that you have to make dua and Allah subhana wa Tada, always legislated, legislates for his slaves, that which is most beneficial for them, the things that we need the most are the things that we are provided with the most. The thing that we need in terms of human beings that we need on a constant basis, physically is what we need to be able to breathe. You don't need to eat all the time, you don't need to drink all the time, but you need to be able to breathe all the time. And so air is abundant, we need to be able to drink water is abundant, Allah Subhana Allah provides us with the things that we need the most. And in terms of
the greatest duo is the two of swords alfetta Yes, and Abu Yaga. Mustang Deena.
So asking a lot of parents either to guide you to the straight path and and seeking his aid and doing that, that is the greatest. And this is why loss of Hannah Woods has made it incumbent upon us to make this job. So to add something that does not leave the life of a Muslim within the month of Ramadan, we should be increasing into I the same way that we increase in other good deeds in the month of Ramadan, the same way that our messenger audience
would increase in his generosity in the month of Ramadan, and other good deeds. So if we look at the, if we mentioned this, the is that deal with sorta tillbaka sorta, she's the I had to deal with Ramadan. And this were iron, which is only one place in the brain, that sort of
in the middle of those is when a loss of habitat is talking about the obligation of fasting.
And he talks about the eat as well the conclusion of your fast. Then there's AI that talks about do AI and data loss turns out it goes back to talk about some of the things that are permissible for you to do during the night of your fasting and so forth. So in the middle of these, you can with these rulings that deal with fasting, Allah subhana wa tada talks about drop
as an indication that in the month of Ramadan, we should be striving to make more throughout and it's interesting that he said on the level of China and
when she asked the Prophet sallallahu wasallam about later on, we don't leave until Qatar is the greatest night of the year. And it's a night in which Allah subhana wa tada has made superior to doing the works of 1000 more than 1000 months.
I shall not be allowed Tatiana when she went to the Prophet sallahu wa Salaam and said, O Messenger of Allah. If I know or if we know that it is Laila to Qatar.
She didn't say what should we do?
She said What should we say? The province of Arizona says only allowing the capital into HIPAA law one fact one, allow you are allowed for you are the one who hardens you love pardoning so far. But the point is here that it Ramadan has always been recognized by the Muslims as a time to increase in
increase in blood as well as the recitation of the Brian which is the best thing for you. So we started yesterday
with a very important
it's a comprehensive plan. And we started memorizing it yesterday. And this allowed us to do that every time and who said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to make these collected by Muslims. He said that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam used to say Allahumma Aslan the Dini and let the lawyers motto me and that's the part we explained yesterday along with the DD a levy who is what to me, and everybody should be memorizing this
Not just let it go don't just come here no memorize it, make this Ramadan be the Ramadan that you memorize this do I and a few others that you incorporate on your daily routine inshallah. Alright, so along with the Dini that means Oh Allah rectify for me my Dean fix my theme for me make it right. And we talked about yesterday the importance of our Dean that your dean is your most valuable commodity that if you have been you have nothing else that you are as an he was hungry. And if you have everything else, and you don't have D You don't have any connection to Allah subhana wa Tada. You have no way to prioritize what it is that you should be doing in life. You have no even clue of
what you're living for. Then you have nothing.
Even if you have the wealth of you know the richest people in the world, but you don't have anything you have no connection to a loss of generality you have nothing and because your deen is such a valuable commodity, like with anything else, it needs to be protected. And this is why you're asking Allah subhana wa tada to rectify your deen to give you sincerity and all that you do to make the deeds that you do be make them conform to the Sunnah of our Prophet sallallahu wasallam and his teachings so that you are living a life that is pleasing to Allah subhana wa tada
fire alarm on slightly Dini lady horror so to me therefore other requests that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam makes in this do I want to cover two of them today and then two tomorrow and
the next two are what a slickly done yet dounia latifi hammer ashy
well slipped in the noon Yeah, yeah. And let's see if we have my action and rectify for me my life
in which is my or rectify for me my worldly affairs
in which is my life and you have to live in this dunya
and Allah subhana wa tada has said in the Quran, Allah tenseness, Eva, millet, dunya, and don't forget your portion of this life. We all need things from the worldly affairs
in order to practice our religion
and in order to get to the masjid from for a lot of people, you need to have some type of transportation.
In order to get to Hajj, you definitely have to have a means of transportation, in order to fast, you need to be able to have enough time and support and to get you through the day. Eddie, you need to in order to live life in general as human beings we have a need for the NES, just one of the reasons why we call NES we have that need to be soulless to find comfort in the presence of other human beings.
And so, hence the idea of getting married or having children these are these are natural.
You know, these are natural feelings that most people have. And this is part of your life. This is part of your dunya and Allah subhana wa tada here we're asking him to make all of these things right for us to set them right to rectify them if there's anything that is not right about them to fix them. And so this tool is critical because it encompasses every aspect of life is almost like the drive that you make between a Brooklyn Aaliyah Manny in a kegel Eskimo wants to do it process by some of us to make
it fit dunya Hashanah. Allah give us the good of this life. So here you're asking Allah subhana wa tada to give you that which is good but also rectify that part of your life that may not be correct things that have
been broken, if you will. Yeah, asking the last few minutes Allah to fix them so the drivers will swiftly do Yeah, yeah, let's see if we have Ashley and rectified for me my worldly affairs, my world in which I live and which is my livelihood. And so here as some of the scholars have mentioned,
that you are asking the last panel what to add in for a particular
We will give him a good life. A good life is one in which you are content
In which you have peace of mind. What does contentment mean? That what Allah subhana wa tada has given you, you find it to be sufficient.
You're content with what a loss of power to Allah has decreed for you the portion of this life that he has given you, not like some people who always look to those who are above them. And our Prophet is allowed to sit and prohibited us from that.
So you may find a man who has
a wife who was pleasing to Him. But maybe she has some things that
he doesn't like about her.
So Pamela, he may say something to her like was so and so's wife doesn't do that. And so and so's wife does it like this, because he's not content with what he has, and he's looking at what someone else has, and I profit it aside from sin and prohibited us from them. Because if you look at those who are above you,
then it is more likely that you will be ungrateful for the famous that Allah has given you.
And so here you're asking Allah subhanaw taala to do one to give you the good in this life and to fix it for you.
The third line is what the guillotine let's see, Elena, Maddy was swiftly able to lead he may have
and rectify for me, my here after two, which is my return.
In this line, when we asked the last mentality to rectify for us, are we not asking for provisions? Yes, we are asking for provisions because you need provisions in order to live this life properly. For you? What are the provisions of the hereafter? What's the currency of the hearing? And this for example, the currency in this country is what you have to go change your money. rehouse realize Helen is okay. And in England, what is it?
pounds? In America the currency is dollars?
What's the currency in the hereafter?
Yeah, has a net and say yet good deeds and badges. That's the currency of the hero.
And this is why our profit is slightly silly. I'm actually in a heartbeat. He said mechanically, as he muslimah
has done some wrong to his brother, then let him seek His forgiveness today let or make it right today.
before it becomes before it is not about a dinner from with Dina. And another words before you get to the here at the you can fix things in this life. You can fix it with your brother with money. A lot of times where you You said something wrong about them and you can go fix that or whatever. But in the Hereafter, it's not about the not and get him there's no more golden silver in here. The currency of the Hereafter is good deeds and bad deeds. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said etc, etc.
Do you know who the bankrupt one is from my own mind? bankrupt? You would think about somebody that doesn't have any money. He has no currency.
they said he's the one without any determine Medina, the prophecy. Some say no. The bankrupt one from my own mind is the one who comes on yo pmmc with what salon and zakat. He has good deeds. He brings this this is his currency,
or European. He's done these good deeds that he's made which
he says, however, shatter my head. He assaulted this one with will and he hit this one with 750 mad and he spilled the blood of that one. And so they're going to do what
they are going to start taking from his good deeds. So he comes on your piano, he has money. I mean, not money, but he has this currency. He has a load of good deeds. But because of the bad things that he's done because of the people that he has oppressed in this life.
This one will take from him and that one will take from him and all he's doing now is withdraw.
No deposits. Everything is withdraw, taking, taking, taking until he has nothing left.
And this is why the prophet SAW you saw him call him a Muslim. He's bankrupt. Because the currency of Yama, Yama, his good deeds, and bad deeds and all of his good deeds were taken. So now he's what he's bank.
And worse than that,
if he does not have enough good deeds to go around to the people that he's oppressed,
then they will start depositing their bad deeds into his account.
And now not only is he bankrupt, but he's in debt.
Not only does he have anything, then he has an ad but now he has he's taking the Safety Act are the evil deeds of other people because of what he used to do them in this life. So when you're asking the last panel, which ad to rectify for you, you're here after
you're asking allies, to increase for you your hesa net,
your good deeds, the deeds that you do in this life. So though it may you Yes, you're asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for agenda, you're asking for him for a spacious green, you're asking him for all of those things that we look for, and the hereafter for him to keep you away from being punished.
But that goes back to what,
what you do in this life. So, in effect, you're asking a loss of power to add to help you and account in doing good deeds.
All right, so let's, let's get this down. The first part of the hubby was we took yesterday, Aloma smitten the DD, a lady who was smart to Emory,
our law rectify for me, my deed, which is the safeguard of all of my fears, everything in life focuses or circles, your deen is the center of your life.
And if you don't have that focus, this is what you're asking the last panel to add, to help you in terms of prioritizing what you do in this life. So such that your deed becomes the safeguard and the protection of everything else that you do in life. And again, as we mentioned yesterday, and I want it I want to hammer this point home.
The two that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam used to make the Edit via the prophetic supplications there's nothing like it. Yes, we want to make do it from our hearts. We want to make sure that the do I that we are making is from our hearts no doubt about it. And so sometimes you don't just want to say something in Arabic and you don't know what you're saying. Because that's not likely to be accepted by those fans out because you're not really praying to Him. You don't even know what you're saying. You don't know what you're asking for. So how can you How can you expect to receive
however a lot of times we we just make up to our whatever do I comes out? Allah give me this all I'll make this right.
But if we make this nobody
who was better at calling upon a loan than our message at a salon to say, so that's why we should memorize the blinds that he used to make and incorporate them in our labs. And that's why we want to memorize them now. Like as in today, so you're going to repeat after me inshallah, make sure we get the first part down Allahumma slit Li
Dini, what's Dini? Me? My D my religion? A lady who will respond to me and lady who will respond to me Okay, so therefore is Allah if you don't memorize the Arabic that's okay. Memorize the English and then go back and memorize in Arabic So you're saying Oh Allah rectify for me my Deen my religion which is the safeguard or the protection of all of my fears. Like next will lead
us there. Me it's easy shovel. Everybody will Lee
tune Yeah, yeah. Okay, so doing here, right. We all know doing it and then there's a yeah at the end because you're saying my junior right. Doing Yeah.
Okay, well, a slick lead dounia
and let's see here. Uh, let's see if he had
my ashy. Okay, my ashy means my livelihood or my living. So you're saying Oh Allah rectify for me, my union in which I live in which is my livelihood. Right. And then the last line that we'll take today was us. Lead so this is repetitive right? allama was literally with us lately. Okay, so this part should be easy. We're asleep. Lee.
Okay, from his Slack, right. Have you heard the word is slack. Many of us had to make something right when you make is slack.
For us the whole being away from right rectify between your brothers something has gone wrong. When you make a slap you make it right. You make a right so you're asking a lot to make right for you. You're here after well as slightly as hear it and feel it. We hear you say ask your team. Well, especially here it
lets he lay hair. And let's eat I have my ID, my return my return. So these are the three lines that we want to memorize by the end of today. The first one is a lot rectify for me my religion, which is the safeguard of all of my affairs will swiftly and rectify for me, my dunya in which is my livelihood and rectify for me right here after two witches. My return and that is collected by an email Muslim and we're gonna cover the last two lines tomorrow.
We're gonna move on to chapter seven.
como de la de
t 191 i believe is the
daughter chapter heading
for a walk to remove or prevent any harm.
Come to low salatu salam ala rasulillah We're back. Okay, so we're going to cover chapter seven and conservative heat. And it's very important that that we understand this chapter, this chapter is the beginning of where the author is going to start detailing some of the things that are contradictory to toe heat, so we've been talking about so he's singing out of lust, how to add it in worship, and that this is the reason that we were created this is our purpose here on earth is that we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone that we make sure that our hearts are attached to Allah subhana wa tada alone and that we worship him with love, limitless love, and with fear, and with hope. And both
fear and hope have limits. If you exceed those limits, then you will go beyond what you are supposed to do in terms of your hope and fear and a last minute data if somebody hopes too much in the last minutes out is that a problem?
allows the forward he's raheen he's to web he will do
all of these things are to inspire hope in us he is he is
there to inspire hope but can we help in a lot too much?
Is that possible? Yes, it is possible. It's possible that you put so much hope or that you hope in a law so much
that you tech men in Mecca the law which is a major sin is that you are that you feel safe and secure
from the punishment of a loss of habitat.
And that is a major sin because that's going to lead to a lot of other things.
Can you fear a lot too much? Well we save
a lot of * should he even don't he can
write he is severe and punishment. So Hannah what's Adda?
We know that he is Jabbar haha.
But can we fear a lot too much? Yes.
You can fear a loss so much that you take a spear mo he left that you despair from a last minute at his mercy. And that's a sin that's a major sin in his name that you despair from allows mercy. So there are limits to fear and hope.
Can you love the last Countdown to too much? No.
No, there's no such thing as loving Allah fantastic too much. And that is why when we look at when we talk about what they call our cannon the bed right? The the essential elements of your worship, philosophy and data or what they may translated as pillars of worship in general. There are three love and fear and hope
and pray for him alongside and other scholars of Islam have said that it's like a verb.
The head of that bird.
That's the love. That's what propels you. That's what guides you in the balance is through fear and hope
You have to keep that balance of fear no.
But but the love is the essence of your worship of a loss of habitat. Right. So we talked about that we talked about that. So heat, and that that love that you have for loss of habitat that makes you stand in front of him. subhana wa tada broken
in with sincerity,
and seeking his reward, and not wanting to do anything that displeases him because you love him. Not just because you fear you love so you can love someone so much. You can love your parents. So you don't want to do anything that disappoints
because you're scared of them, but because you love.
And so your love of a lost parents either is what should propel your worship of him Jelena and it is part of your worship. So
but what is important to note here is that a lot of times, we don't recognize where we fall short, in our worship of Allah subhanaw taala. Until we look at the opposite of it to heat until we look at the opposite of singling out a lot of fans out there our worship. And so we look at the opposite, which is called what shirt
he had to make his will.
And by its opposites, things become clear. When you when you see when you know the opposite of something, then it becomes all the more clear to you.
And that is why we talked about earlier, you we a lot of times we don't recognize our blessings until we either one lose them like $1.
Or until you see someone else who's struggling with the blessing that you already have. So the fact that we stood up again, we breathe effortlessly without thinking about it. It's something that we don't take for granted Tyler enough for
for every breath that you take. But for those people who are on ventilators and cannot breathe without the aid of a machine.
Then for them, they recognize the net
breathing because they've experienced what the opposite. And so likewise, this is why the author here for the next number of chapters,
he's going to deal with issues related to a ship, which is the opposite of toe heat so that we can clearly see, okay, this is what tawheed is. And that should, not from his own. He had or not because he's making up something, but because the last guy that said something the bride, but because our Prophet is selected with the lamb, and said, so it has been established in his son.
And so here, the author says, from shooting, a form of shooting is to wear a brain or a string.
For what purpose? Because wearing the ring that's not
just wearing the string or a bracelet or a necklace. No, that's not sure. He said for what the deaf albula Oh, Rafi to repel some type of evil that is to prevent evil from coming, or rough he or to counteract
some calamity that has already or affliction that has already been falling somewhere. So there are two things here. Number one is that they were for what purpose as a protection, nothing's wrong with them. But they were to protect them.
Or they or what was the other one? Or something actually is afflicting them, they are suffering from some kind of illness or something like that. And so they were it to do what to counteract the effects of that illness?
What kind of shift is this? Remember, we said this shift is two types.
Major and Minor. The major shift takes one outside of the fold of Islam. And minor shirt is worse than major sins.
So it seems
like which kind of shift is this? Somebody wears a ring, you might see somebody wearing a ring. And tomorrow we're going to talk about and maybe even today actually, we'll talk about the amulets that some people wear.
And then they vary from nation to nation from people to people. You may see someone with a four leaf clover,
or a horseshoe over the door of their house. What are they What are they doing that for?
or they think it brings them good luck or whatever. Like what kind of shift is this? If somebody does that, can you say Oh, he's
not a Muslim?
Wait, no, this is this is what is known as a ship, Alaska, it is a minor form of ship, it can become, it can become a major shirt. However, we'll talk about the details of Venezuela. The main or the base rule, if you will, is that it is minor shift. And why is that? And the question, I really want you to hone in and understand this, because a lot of people do not get this issue, right, they don't understand. And for that reason,
there's a disconnect in the chapters that are to follow. Okay.
If you look, if you take a step back, and we talked about at toe heat, and we talked about toe, he'd also been two categories. So he been married for a while is that that is to affirm for Allah subhanho wa Taala, his names that his attributes in his actions, and we talked about, so he's a customer of telephoto, either a bat, which is to single out a loss of habitat and your worship of him. All right, because so he needs to single out somebody. So when we single out a lost metadata and his names and his attributes, and his actions,
then that means that we cannot attribute those things to anyone else. So we save a lot of lost man, Tyler as the creator, for example, last month, that is the creator of the universe, if someone comes and says no,
Zeus is the Creator of the heavens and earth, then we're going to call that what
Why, because he attributed something that
was solely is only a las pantallas action. And that we have to single out a loss, we're going to add it and in terms of our belief, and allows me to be the sole creator, he attributed that to someone else. Okay. And many of the Christians, even the Christians who distinguish between
early Christians, who distinguish between the Father and the Son, right, they didn't say that this was one entity. So the father is God.
And the son is Jesus.
They say many of the early Christians any early, relatively early third century, they say that God was the creator, the father was the creator of the sun. And then the sun created the universe. The sun is an SOS not as
that he was the Creator of the heavens and earth. So they they in fact, say Jesus, though he is not. Almighty God, He is the Creator of the heavens and earth,
and therefore deserves to be worshipped. And that is sure.
Right? Like, I don't mean to confuse you, I just want you to understand that to attribute creation to other than a last chance at it is now to not singled him out in his attribute of creation, or his name, I'll call it the Creator, and go on down the line. All right.
Okay, how does this relate to what we're talking about today, because we also as part of our belief,
in a laws actions, is that Allah subhana wa, tada is the creator of causes and effects.
And this part is critical to understand if you understand this, you're going to understand the next 10 chapters very easily shall Allah is the Creator of causes and effects.
And we know some of those causes and effects
through our own trials, to our own experiences, practical daily life,
you know, that if you
if you light a match,
then what's going to happen?
There's going to be one fire. And you know that if you put that fire on a piece of paper, like this book right here, it's going to do what it's going to burn alesmith data has created,
the causes and their effects, and we know many of them. Again, through experience. There are other causes and effects that we don't know through experience, that we only know because the last panel data has informed us in His revelation that these are causes and effects.
Correct. So, for example, we know that reading the more outweigh the 10
hula openness does what it protects you from what?
It protects you from allowing the eye it protects you from certain. Yeah, it protects you from harm in general. But we only know this because of what? Because we were informed through revelation. So we have another cause and effect relationship that isn't based on our own trial and error. I know that if I take this and I rip it down, then it's going to go and happen on pieces. But we know this from cause. Likewise, the same thing we said about fire.
Right fire does what it burns. But when he brought him out, he was thrown into the fire by his people, that it burned him.
No, because allegedly, Joel is the creator of causes and effects. And he said to the fire Cooney, back then was lm be cool and peaceful for Ibrahim. And so it didn't burn her. Because our lives are jealous in control of those things like so, for example, if you were to go to a doctor, and you asked the doctor, what are some of the means to live a longer life? What's the doctor gonna tell you, the doctors gonna say you need to eat healthy, you need to exercise you need to get good sleep, you need to avoid, you know, drugs and alcohol and so on. And these are means that lead to a a longer life.
from what? From trial from experience. Okay.
However, we also know that there is another way to live longer.
And that is to
keep the relationship with your relatives. How do we know that? We know that through revelation? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and you said no, we will use sub level feeders feeding
whoever wants to live longer, and whoever wants his wealth to increase, then let him keep good ties with his family.
So if you were to go ask a financial expert,
what are some of the causes? How can I make more money? Okay, well, you need to work a little harder, you need to work longer, you need to work overtime, you need to invest your money in this stock, you need to Okay, these are all
what we can call natural causes of causes that we gained through experience. But then there are other things that we gained through revelation. And we only know through revelation, is that clear? If we now attribute a cause and effect relationship
that is not based on something very clear and apparent.
And we attribute that to other than Allah subhana wa Tada. Then it's as if we say that there's another creator along with Allah.
let's look at the issue. Now a person wearing a ring.
In order to prevent some harm from coming to
we would say, what is this ring made out of? It's made out of copper or silver or gold or whatever?
Is this something known? Does this mineral silver, this precious metal? Is it known to have any healing effect? No, it's not. It's not used for that purpose. Now, someone said I want to take these,
you know, I want to take certain herbs and vitamins to boost my immune system to prevent, you know, some type of disease, okay?
Because there's a net there's a normal cause and effect there. That's something that has been tried and tested over time and seen, okay, if you take these types of things, helps build your immune system. And knowing that knowing side of yourself and believing firmly that this is all from a loss of payments,
that you may never take any of these things and never get sick and you may take it every day and still get sick.
But you you're taking the preventive measures, but a ring
there's nothing that indicates that not from your Apple, not not from your intellect, nor anything from the Sharia or revelation that would indicate that so now if someone wears a ties a string around their finger or around their neck
or puts a ring on because they're saying that this is going to prevent some harm from coming to me this is going to prevent the evil eye This is going to prevent and we say no.
Is there something because this is definitely not based on intellect is something some type
The hidden element here. Do you have something from the revelation that indicates that
and there is nothing and this is why this is a form of minor shirk.
Because you are a person who does this is now attributing a cause and effect relationship to other than a loss of handles. And we know that Allah azza wa jal himself is the only creator of causes and effects.
Is that clear. And we're going to see this, you know, as we look through some of the texts that we're going to cover today, and Shalom, Tana, if we understand this point, that cause and effect relationship, or causality, then begin to latch on to the rest of what we're going to cover today will be quite easy to shut off fast and easy to understand.
Tell me about that. besides Allah, can he say to the machete comb, tell me about those things that you worship besides a rock? Well, that you call upon, that you call upon that you invoke besides Allah, because the mosquito
bite before in the same is a matter of fact, in this same way, people back to sort of Zuma the same I
lost my data says, well, is how to follow the semi whitey. Well, they have
full metadata. So you if you ask them who created the heavens and earth, they're going to say, oh, Allah, Allah is the one that created the heavens and earth.
A lot that tells the privacy and say to them, if you recognize that allows the one that created the heavens and earth, He created you, he created everything that exists.
That say, look to those that you invoke, besides along.
Tell me these things that you are invoking besides a law, the one that you recognize is the creator.
If a last minute data wanted some harm to be for me, could they prevent it?
And if Allah died at one and mercy to come to me, and he wanted his bounties to come to me, could they prevent a lesser designer from giving me His bounty?
In other words, you already know the answer. No, since that is the case called haspiel Allah, Allah sufficient for me there is no I have no need to invoke these other deities that you are invoking, because they cannot prevent harm from coming to me, nor can they bring me any benefit. So called has to be a law, let's say, Allah sufficient for me, now, la de
our cross in him.
Let those who put their trust, put their trust in Him, let those who want to rely for their trust put their trust in Allah.
They're not going to put their trust in anything besides a loss of habitat. And even though this verse was revealed the prophecy, like someone was talking to him, he's talking to Muslims. And this first
qualifying to match
you see with that, that you are invoking besides and now he was talking to Muslims who should can add but that is they have never they were not inside the fold of Islam. But the author is using this verse
as a proof, to avoid minor shirt. Because why? Because there is a
costume of stomach. I can't think of a way to translate there. Yes, there's a common denominator.
There's a comment, then I make sure you come every day.
So I can look, there's a common denominator here. And that is mentioned at the end of the of the aisle. Why I like the failure to walk
Tokido let those who are going to rely on anything put their trust in Allah. So here, what we find is that those who are wearing these rain
Or necklaces, or strings or whatever their heart becomes attached to what
their heart becomes attached to the ring, their heart becomes attached to the string to the bracelet to the necklace, or whatever it is that they're wearing.
And so there is a degree, the same way we talked about, that they are attributing a cause and effect relationship
to a creator other than Allah. And that's should, in the first category of tawheed, which is a mighty Mo, and it's best, just to know, and to affirm allows oneness.
There's also another degree of the heart being attached to other than Allah,
to the point that if you told him, I'll take that ring off and throw it away, no, no, no,
they have a belief in the ring, they have a belief in the string that they're wearing around their necks,
and then losing their attachment to a loved one into either in a manner that is proportionate to whatever attachment they have put to this thing that they're wearing. So the common denominator here is that there's a lack of tawakkol pantalon. from both those who are mostly Khoon, as an outside of the fold of Islam, and those who commit minor sure innocent
understand the connection here.
So there's that that's that common denominator that that aspect of trust. There's also the fact that, though, if you ask them, does this thing bring you benefit besides a law? Or can it prevent you harm if it lost fentanyl was the harm, even though they're not, they're not going to say anything off of the atones, there is an indication that they believe that this thing has the ability to bring benefit, or ward off any harm. Okay, so if we look at the and then we'll move on to the next two headings and shadows that the author mentioned, one is in this chapter, he mentioned to Heidi, and there's an effort on labor on the side and also at the end,
which is also what I like about this book. And I think that it's important and important reason why we studied this book is that it's crying
for an end soon, and that is what we want to understand these concepts of amen and prefer to hear the shift in these types of things. These are legislative terminology. This is not something that we needed some somebody to come tell us about. illustrator dad has explained this narrowly in his book, and the Prophet it is still it was today, he also explained it in his suit. So
if we look at the one, and this is also for people who were amulets, you don't like
necklaces with the charms on it, except the Koran, except the bride, which we'll talk about tomorrow. It's not part of our discussion today. But the grind is outside of the discussion. That is some people were little amulets with for ionic, if it was something like that,
that has its own ruling, which we'll discuss tomorrow.
And it should be avoided.
But we're talking about now, as though people were wearing things, they don't even know what it says.
Are they wearing a certain kind of
ring with some inscription on it? Or
going further than that, with some people doing certain societies, like I mentioned before, for leaf clovers, and rabbit Switz and horseshoes and all types of stuff that people you know, do. And the one that you see very, very, very common is the hand with the with the eye.
Right, because people think that this is going to ward off the evil eye, which is panela. I mean, besides the fact that there's no evidence whatsoever for this in our religion.
It's an indication of, of a person being heavily influenced by the society in which he lives in and less influenced by, by his own deep
faith. So here again, just to go back to wrap, wrap it up as
a person who wears this ring,
or this string, twine, rope or whatever it might be, with the belief that this thing
in and of itself, has powers.
It has the power to ward off evil. It has the power to protect me it has the power to counteract some illness that has befallen me, then this is called should this is
A major form of shirt,
because the person has put his trust fully into this thing, and believes that this thing now has that power. If a person wears it, believing that it is a cause.
In other words, they were told by someone that if you do this, if you wear this a love will ward off the evil a law will protect you from but you have to wear this ring, then this is a minor form of shift, because now they have again put that cause and effect relationship or attributed a cause and effect relationship to other than the last one, how much data as well as the the type of dependence that the heart is going to have on that type on that object Not
to mention it
and lobby future generations.
Imagine a copper ring on his hand. And
what is this? The man replied, to overcome a line? All right, Stopping, stopping, and might even proceed.
While the alarm said no, no. Another narration of this hadith which is
collected in statistical hacking, and this other narration enlightenment was saying he mentions that it was him who was wearing the ring. So he has this copper ring on.
And the Prophet idea selector was sent him saw him and he said, What's this?
Mr. Dimon, he'll say he said, middleware Hina middleware Hina. Now, there's some things to note here linguistically unaware Hina, which is a specific type of illness
comes from the root one, which which which is to be weak, right.
And so this disease causes weakness. And, as the scholars have mentioned, that it was a weakness that was known amongst the errors at that particular time to be in this area, the upper arm, shoulder area. And so any weakness that will come to here, they will call it a whacking away. And some of them believe that it was because of the veins, they didn't know exactly what it was from. And as some of the other scholars have had eat, say that it wasn't necessarily related to this part of the body, the most of them say that, that any weakness throughout the body, sometimes it's gone away. But But in general, in general, this disease and where Hina was a type of weakness and illness
that caused weakness in the shoulder area in the upper arm. And so Mr. Davis was saying is wearing this ring. And the prospect says, What are you wearing this for? He says, I'm wearing it because up because of this illness. Now.
You've heard from a lot of Southern movies, or we can only add to your we can
overtake you while you are, you will never succeed if additional reporting by a co chain operator. Okay, so he says the author himself says that it was narrated by a man with a good chain of narratives. And if you'll remember, from the beginning of these lessons, I mentioned that over 60% of the Hadeeth, in this book are from Bukhari and Muslim and that the other 40%, some of them are sorry, that is their sound. Some of them are hesson, which is fair and acceptable, and some of them are weak. But the majority of those that are weak.
There are what are known as szalay, or there are other arhavi was testified to the meaning of that particular heavy, which is why they call them show f because they testify to the meaning. And so
this particular Howdy,
even though the author says that it is that it is a related by act, but with a good chain of Veritas, there are other scholars of ideen that say that this howdy this week, and just from the dining angle of academic integrity, I want to throw that out there. So that you know, there are scholars that say that this hadith is weak. But as you'll see, there are other narrations that support the meaning. So the prophet Isaiah select was sent in, says here in zarahemla. In even though in English, we kind of even though it says remove it is sort of like rip it off. Like the problem is like some of is not just saying, oh, take it off. No, it's like get rid of that. rip it
off. Because it is only going to add to your weakness. What is that? What does that mean? It's only going to add to your weakness. It's only going to add to your weakness because if a person to think about this
If a person is afflicted with an illness, right, and let's just say the doctor tells prescribes to them a particular
you know, medicine, they say, Take this, and inshallah, seven to 10 days you'll be back to normal, you'll be feeling great.
Once you start taking that medicine,
you start looking for other remedies, because you feel like you've already found the remedy.
And if the prescription happens to be wrong,
then what's going to happen, usually you're going to increase in illness, because you're taking the wrong remedy, and you're not doing anything to actually deal with the, with the illness. So the prophet Isaiah select was selected here
is letting him know, this thing is only going to increase your illness, because you're wearing it, you're not going to seek another means to to remedy the situation, not to mention that it weakens your heart.
Because now your heart becomes attached to something when it should be attached to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah alone and then the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam goes on to say if you die while wearing this thing, then you will not succeed, you will not succeed. In other words, you will not attain salvation, and that needs to be understood in the context of other narrations of the same heavy because if a person dies, while committing a minor form of shooting,
will they achieve salvation? Eventually, yes, because they have not left the fold of Islam and every Muslim will eventually achieve salvation that is they will be taken out of the fire for those who are purified in the fire.
So, to understand this had to look at the other narrations which mentions, if you die believing, then it will benefit you then you will not ever succeed and that is closer to the meaning of this hijiki shallow which is that if a person dies with that kind of belief, totally believing that the benefit comes from from this thing then that will take them
outside of the fold of Islam. As you already mentioned that
was also recorded that book by Mohammed related and the publisher said whoever is an ambulance can mean we are rather elderly wish does not stop stopping. They'll go back and read that again. Whoever wears an ambulance.
Even if it is the Sahabi here whether your loved one whoever was
Okay, whoever wears a to meme, right? Which which is translated as me like
there's a play on words here that you can't you don't get into English.
Right when I look at me, Martin Fowler Malala right.
In the Arabic there, I guess a play on words is the best way I could describe it.
But the prophecy some is using the word to Mima and attempt which is to man because in a call to the to Mima, because you know to man means
you might know somebody named to mean to man
to man means to complete something. Right. And Yama, Mottola come in upon what it's meant to add a continuity and I've completed my favorite of mine. So it means to complete something, they used to call it a 10 EMA because they believe that it helped you to complete whatever protection it was that you were looking for, it completely rid you of whatever harm was you were facing, and these type of things. And this is why they called it a to me.
So it doesn't really work in English, right, but the meaning is the same whoever I left off,
which which here is translated as wares, but you can also say whoever hangs, whoever hangs a an amulet. There May Allah not what allow him to have is
not his wish, yet May Allah not allow him to fulfill his wish May Allah not allow him to complete whatever it was that he was looking for. Okay. And here also, in terms of I love to, which means to hang something, it can also mean to attach something. And so the scholars say that this means both
Whoever hangs an amulet or whoever attaches his hearts to an amulet, may Allah subhanaw taala not fulfill his wish. And whoever
is no piece, which is the same, honestly is the same meaning, but in Arabic because there are two different words that are used for
the province of light it was someone gave us that detail
which is which is a seashell. But it's it's used for the same thing. They used it because a lot will Adam, but they believed that it was representative of things that are peaceful, like the waves, you know, so they were this seashell as a means of bringing them some kind of peace in their lives.
So this was collected this this hadith was narrated on the authority of Aleppo, in Amman, while the Allahu China animal, this particular chain of narrators is is is not sound, however, it is another narration. And another version
of the report
is an ami live.
Right whoever wears an amulet has committed shirt, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is the one who said cut Islam. Not me not this year, not even to me. And I just wonder that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that he's the one who said that whoever wears an ambulance. And what are we talking about before, either two ways, if the person believes that that amulet is itself in and of itself, it has powers that this person has committed should antibody. In general, people don't wear for those reasons, people don't wear amulets, believing that it has power in and of itself.
But they do wear them believing that it is a means of protection.
And this is why we said that this is called what miner should because now they have attributed a cause and effect relationship to other than a loss of contact.
If and I believe that the Muslims as a whole want good.
They want to be pleased they want to be especially this month of Ramadan, their hearts are closer to the last minute and they want to draw closer to a loss.
And because of that, I believe that this is a good time for us to encourage those who we know that are afflicted with this because there are many Muslims around the world who are wearing these charms
who are afflicted with this. Not because they want to be displeasing to Allah fantana not because they want to go against the Sunnah of the Prophet it is, but simply because they didn't know.
So now we need to let them know, put your trust and loss accounts out, take that off, burn it.
Nothing's going to happen to you any ketchup, except for what it was rent out, it's already written for you. And a lot did not make these things. A cause of your protection, he didn't make them a means for your protection. In fact, unfortunately, what has happened is, this has become a business. For some people,
you go to them,
and you explain to them that you're dealing with certain problems. And they say, Okay, come back to me tomorrow. And they make these things and put knots in it and wear this for one year. And it will, you know, alleviate you from it. And they get paid for that.
And they are using the, you know, navety, the gullible nature of some of us the fact that we would put our, you know, has no gun, we have good thoughts about the other Muslims. And you see this person is ashamed or whatever.
And because of the good thoughts that a person has about them,
they put their hand in their hand and they trust me.
And so we need to let them know our profit is selected for them. So this is this is shirt.
And this particular narration has a story behind it
on the long side and who said that there were 10 people who came to the prophet Isaiah salatu salam to do the beta.
And the prophets like Selim to Sachin been home and he gave nine of them the beta and the 10th one No, he didn't shake his hand.
And so someone said to the Prophet, I need to select with Sudan. You've given the beta. You're given by our
You know, they've given they I nine of them but the 10th one you didn't shake his hand
and the province of the law it was so upset because he is wearing an M.
And whoever wears an amulet for cut,
then he has a minute shift, and I'm not going to give him too bad. So the man removed it. And then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam shook his hand.
Now, the last
proposal to mention,
we had people report in
their lobby, we had him was a scholar of Hadeeth.
His father was a scholar, he had even more hats in a Razzie he was also a scholar.
And in fact, it is said that if it was not for his Tafseer there would be no Tafseer Evan cathedra
because tafsir relies heavily in terms of narrations on to FCM and heavy heads, and only a portion of it has been printed.
Even though he hasn't reported an invasion of Allah be pleased to hear from a man with a piece of paper
he was a scholar in Islam he was so happy to taburiente
for the for the men
probably a little tired and saw his suit was really nice. He was the one who kept the secret of the Prophet it selectively said that he had a list of what of the moon FET
he was the one at home on how the low tide and who went to and said Am I on the list that
any fear for himself
even though he was the greatest of the believers have to have a bucket of Sydney at that after the prophets
a lobby boosted saw a man with a piece of string Titans hands you
he was suffering. So he come to the street and read the verse. And most of them believe not in a law except that they joint partners with him. Okay. All right. So this is the last thing that we covered today shout out to Anna
and this is also something that is is very beneficial in terms of of giving us an idea of this cause and effect relationship today for those to a man or he sees a man with a string or some twine, whatever tied to his finger. Okay. Now, have any of you if you have a fever, what do you normally do?
You normally do?
Take some some medicine panadol paracetamol?
I've never heard of that, that must be specific to England, like Americans Tylenol or ibuprofen or something like this, or a person. I mean, before those times, a person may take cold, you know, washcloths or something like that, put her on his head keep changing them. I mean, something that is clear. is a type a string, what is it? What is it? What is me tying a string or my fingers going to do for a fever?
There is no clear connection here.
The only connection is that somebody must believe that there's a cause effect relationship between this string and the fever. But where are they getting this from? They're not getting it from experience.
And they're not getting it from Revelation. And so for that reason, they are attributing a cause effect relationship to other than a loss of time. And this is why the general rule and everything that we're going to be studying in the next couple chapters is Whoever believes that something is a cause, that Allah has not made a cause as committed miners, sure. All right. So So, and this is where even when who they for cause it here, right? Because he sees the man with the string, and he cut it off. And he said, What am I you know, epsilon Billa 11 machico. And most of them do not believe in a law except that they also commit.
Right? Now, even though this is talking about Elon Musk, deikun talking about those who are outside of the fold of Islam.
And notice that Allah data says that they believe in Allah
was the belief that they had in a law enough to bring them into the fold of Islam now, and that's why we should, you know, again, like we talked about yesterday.
It's not enough that you worship Allah.
You have to worship a lot alone.
And not worship anything else. That's a slam, slam, stop worshiping Allah, all of the machico worship the love
The problem was that they worship others along with Allah.
And so our Prophet is here who they
recited this verse when they you know, accident in the lab. This is a Muslim, he's talking to 1111, you should equal and so he says accept the date commit. And that shirt may be minor or may be major in this case, it was a minor form of shirt, but even the the machete cool, that is the idolaters themselves. They believe in Allah. And that's why it's not enough for us as Muslims. Oh, no, it's okay. Because he believed in the lifelong he believes in God, he's okay.
I was not enough to believe in God. It's not just enough to but it's not enough just to work. It's not enough to worship God. You have to worship Him alone some kind of attack. That is what brings someone into the fold of Islam and that is what is going to lead eventually, to a person's salvation and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah knows best or solo Solomonic. And then Unbeknown covenant. I will do any questions. Because yesterday, we didn't have a chance to take questions, any questions? And you can ask them now shalom Tada.
If not, then I'm doing them means Shall I did a good job explaining?
No, no, no one second here. Okay, go ahead
to protect your luggage. So again, we're gonna deal with this tomorrow, the brothers question is, what have you have? What if you put like a mishap in your luggage, or you or even just
a page from the crime in your luggage or you put it in your car, for example, like some people do
to protect the luggage or to protect your car from harm? Or something like that? Again, we're gonna deal with the
issues directly related to the Brian tomorrow and shallow inside. But to give you a quick answer, there is no basis for there is no basis for that in Revelation. And it's not something that was the normal practice of obviously not the Prophet it in silicon, Sudan or any of the companions. Even though they had that available. They had pages of the crime even before the Brian even for the crime was compiled in the mishaps like we have today. The they call it most hackers, man, even before that they have pages of the crime, they could have done that. Had it been something that was recommended.
Like any questions from online,
need to write it down. Just go ahead and say
can you make with your mind or what?
Like, I think I had the same question. I'll wrap it up.
The question I states that his father is, is very old. And
in his mother is not as old and she hasn't performed Hajj, and she wants to perform Hajj. But the father said, don't go to Hajj because I can't live without you basically. Mashallah, it's a beautiful story.
So the answer, the answer is you have to look at it from two angles. Number one, is that if in fact, the father is of the age where the mother is the primary caretaker of such that if he if she left, he would not have someone to take care of him if you need someone to take care of him. And she is considered in this case to be agitated, meaning that she does not have the ability to make highs because she is the sole care caretaker of your father and he needs someone to take care of him. And that is the situation with certain but some of the elderly, where they need someone on a 24 hour basis, and I need to take care of. So that's the case that she's the primary caretaker and there's
no one else that can fulfill that role. Then she should stay with, with your father and take care of him. If it's simply that
he loves her so much. And he doesn't want to you know, he doesn't want her to go.
Then her obligation to a last minute silence. Can In other words, he doesn't need her actually to take care of them. You
can take care of himself or someone else can take care of that role for her while she's gone.
Then her right to Allah subhana wa tada takes precedence over her right to her husband. And that is why even the scholars in the books of filter fuqaha, they talk about the impermissibility of a husband, preventing his wife from performing hajj as long as she has a motto.
So in this case, you would be the mom. So as long as she has a Maharaja, the husband cannot prevent her from making a digital Islam that is the the hash of Islam that is the obligatory hash. Yes, can he prevent her from making a second or third or fourth house, that's a different story completely altogether. But the heights, that is an obligation.
No one can prevent her not her father, not her husband, not anybody can prevent her from making that hatch as long as she has a maximum. And in fact, they say that it is legit for her to disobey Him. In this instance, if she is if he is preventing her from making hives, because he has a duty to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Again, though, that is a very general, very general statement. And I'm saying that because I don't want someone to come now and get divorced because of, you know, something that they heard here and they're not taking other things into consideration, that you would need to go to someone in your locality that knows more about your culture. And that could
hopefully convince because this is what we ultimately what we want is that there is no conflict of interest that we want the husband the father or whoever to back off of the position that they don't want their wife or daughter to go. We want them to back down and that usually happens with advice for somebody that feels the last panel which is
handling shuttle allowing them to stop
