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

I have a lot we have in life.

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

You know, a lot, you know, he tells me he loves the people by providing the right knowledge, right. And under the law, we have been blessed with someone who has been a student of knowledge. Pretty much since right after high school. My children took Shahada and Gen Z as his bachelor's degrees master's degree from the University of Medina. He was currently a PhD student.

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

And he was the first American to have a seat

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

teaching English, many mature have seen his lectures on YouTube teaching over there and how to take them on introduction because all of you already know who he is, which is right up here.

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

So today, he is going to speak.

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

So he's going to speak tonight on

00:01:10--> 00:01:16

moderate Muslims in modern America. So looking forward to hearing what he has to say. And then she'll

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

talk about something else.

00:01:25--> 00:01:32

I'm going to ask people to do his heart. And others know France has this assignment she

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

wants to compete.

00:01:37--> 00:01:45

In these types of programs that he already won, he received an email from EDC and you don't need to

00:01:48--> 00:01:54

put your email in very neatly. So we make sure we can get in touch with you.

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

Well, without further further ado, check.

00:02:08--> 00:02:10

Have you learned initially and personality

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

for them?

00:02:17--> 00:02:17

Mashallah.

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

Mashallah Mohammedan

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

solomani. While

00:02:27--> 00:02:30

he was on number two, the only the only been

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

a lot of hand

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

has left this home,

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

to have a chain

00:02:41--> 00:02:48

that goes back to the profit it assigns to the Senate. Really, we should reflect over that. can remember

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

some years ago,

00:02:52--> 00:03:07

just thinking about the fact that, you know, living in Saudi Arabia, obviously, you hear this a lot outside of domestic life, not just inside us. So whether you're here to be grinding and

00:03:09--> 00:03:23

grinding. He said, If you were on the receiving end, it just dawned on me that it's been being recited out loud for the last 1400 some odd years. Right. Now,

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

if you consider them,

00:03:28--> 00:03:51

not just, obviously, five prayers, but around the nine it's being recited aloud multiple times because it's just become actually it's a recent phenomena that we're trying to finish the Brian's Run with me today. And we try to recite the news every night. And domestically, they're running. That's a recent phenomena. They used to finish the prime multiple times in Ramadan.

00:03:52--> 00:04:03

In fact, I'm not gonna like discussing this issue. But Do any of you know how many rock axes to pray in Medina from the time of the

00:04:04--> 00:04:06

the latter time of the early time

00:04:08--> 00:04:10

and how many rock accidents to pray fatale

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

836.

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

From the time of the Sahaba

00:04:23--> 00:04:55

in Medina, they prayed 36 rockets, not a not 20 or anything else. And you can just imagine that they weren't finishing the brine multiple times in the month of Roman deployments, that the brine is being recited out loud wasn't just a book that people had to be put in a drawer or something like that. So what does that mean? That means if someone makes a mistake when he was reciting, they were doing the same thing that happens now the next would happen, somebody else corrects that event.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

That means there was actually no room for distortion.

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

Brian, we need to keep that in mind that there was no room for the distortion of the crime because it was constantly recite it out loud. There is no other Dean. That's my period.

00:05:13--> 00:05:20

The Christians did not have a Bible, what we call the Bible today, right? The New Testament,

00:05:21--> 00:05:33

the Gospels and the letters of Paul and so on. They didn't have a book actually like that, for the first 100 years after the death of or after what they call the death of Christ.

00:05:35--> 00:05:49

The Jews admitted he, by their own admission, lost their book for 300 years, which means that there was a large time span where there was no connection, there was no chain,

00:05:50--> 00:05:54

once that chain is broken, that they cannot go back to there.

00:05:55--> 00:06:01

So the Jews, by their own admission, do not have a book that has a chain that goes back to loosen.

00:06:03--> 00:06:11

And the Christians do not have a book that goes by the chain. Back to Lisa Addison.

00:06:13--> 00:06:37

Well, how can we have a direct connection to Revelation and that's something we're like, is a Nima. It is a true blessing from Allah subhana wa tada that we can have full confidence that in 1438, we are reading the exact same book that was revealed to our Prophet Mohammed, that insight was meant because no other been consistent.

00:06:39--> 00:06:45

And that book contains the knowledge that we need to be better sleep.

00:06:48--> 00:07:02

And this is the greatest blessing of all lessons. beneficial knowledge men and black men have a massive acidity and a lot of people say a satin, like the one who wrote the Tafseer.

00:07:04--> 00:07:19

He said, who the 10 men have been and women it will use he will shut down. He said know that the greatest of all meaning and favorites from the loss of power of data

00:07:20--> 00:07:28

is knowledge that removes from you a shed up, shut me down.

00:07:29--> 00:07:48

And at dawn mean filth and it purifies. So the Eman And this these two or this line of poetry, he is encouraging us to seek beneficial knowledge because knowledge removes shut when you shut

00:07:50--> 00:08:11

down. There's only one way to remove doubt from that increase in getting which is the opposite for to increase in knowledge. And it also removes that done which is filled or that was stained. So here we understand that it is very important for us to have knowledge

00:08:13--> 00:08:18

it becomes even clearer when we think about the opposite of knowledge which is

00:08:20--> 00:08:24

ignorance and you've ever been playing Warhammer alongside him.

00:08:25--> 00:08:45

He said something that was profound that I really want I want you to let this sink in because it's going to help you in your life for so long time. He said definitely mental and now the Laboratory of one people entered the fire from three different gates or three different drawers.

00:08:48--> 00:08:49

But it was the first one

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

like how many gates

00:08:56--> 00:09:00

allow us to enter genda from any of the eight weeklies

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

and now

00:09:10--> 00:09:22

that that's the that's the physical doors. Here we're talking about angles. So we have three angles if you will that lead to Doubtfire the first one

00:09:25--> 00:09:26

Don't be scared

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

to stand up in all kinds of

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

designs, okay.

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

Okay.

00:09:43--> 00:09:47

So he says, He says Babel should perhaps in

00:09:49--> 00:09:50

our country checking

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

that it is at the door of misconceptions that cause you to doubt about the religion of a

00:10:01--> 00:10:12

So and this is something that that today is prevalent, probably more so than ever in the history of the world because of how fast information can travel.

00:10:13--> 00:10:38

And so people just shoot down stuff What about this and what about them? And it's not that they are answers to it, but if it finds a person who is weakened his knowledge then maybe it takes root. So, the first angle is a sugar sugar act, okay. So, these misconceptions that cause you to doubt about the religion of Allah, then how do we find somewhere

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

with with not

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

so that's why we can close that door

00:10:47--> 00:10:53

with knowledge that is beneficial, right, second is Ben Sherman once he

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

did a sham

00:10:57--> 00:10:59

Sham routing, which channel

00:11:03--> 00:11:05

So, what is

00:11:06--> 00:11:31

your loss? your desires, why because it causes you to put your Hauer causes you to put your desires over the obedience or the loss of payment data and what pleases Him. So in other words, you choose your own pleasure over the pleasing of Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is something that is a fact that leads to the fire.

00:11:32--> 00:11:41

The last door is better than love opening the door of anger

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

which causes a little one

00:11:46--> 00:11:54

thing that causes you to transgress or infringe upon the rights of abortion paired with as Creech

00:11:55--> 00:12:01

and so as you know that may they came to the Prophet I never saw him and he asked him for advice. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that tough

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

times every time they ask me.

00:12:06--> 00:12:14

Because when a person they told him Don't get angry, because when a person gets angry, they do things that they normally would not do.

00:12:16--> 00:12:35

All right, so these are the three doors that lead to the fire now. The second door, we talked about the first one, which is that's a misconception. The second door that leads to the fire, there's a door of Shambo, what helps you deal with Shana? Would you agree with your last

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

song?

00:12:39--> 00:12:53

with certain types of lifestyle, we like just talking about lust for the opposite gender or something like that a person may crave status. A person may crave wealth, a person may crave many things that are, you know, we're not just talking about

00:12:57--> 00:13:05

to constantly remember the last time and honestly, you know, a lot of times people think VIP kid is the hole something in his

00:13:06--> 00:13:29

video is what starts in your heart is that that's my father, remember, you remember our last data and then you say something off and get a tone because you have to remember, because you remember the last time you say something off your tongue, and a person made me realize whatever it is, he's not saying anything, but he's conscious of it. which requires

00:13:30--> 00:13:45

knowledge, which requires not, because the more you know who it is, the less likely you will be to disobeyed for so many reasons. And if you read the Quran, Ramadan is not

00:13:46--> 00:13:54

far away. And many of you were striving to read the Koran more in Ramadan. You see how many is and with

00:13:56--> 00:14:10

was even hacking. And they were the names of the last time. Why? So that you can put 99 names up on your wall until you can do this and make you feel good as a great parent because your kids memorize 99 Names of Allah doesn't understand one of them.

00:14:11--> 00:14:25

Is that what is for all so that we can understand the meanings. alliance of Intel is telling us who he is to these names. Because you may have somebody named Kareem and he's the stinkiest person in the world.

00:14:28--> 00:14:31

But that's true. Somebody was Korean

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

generals.

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

There are a lot of people named currimundi, not generous, but allies, his names, his names carry the means. So life is alive. It means he knows everything. He is assuming he is. I mean, so again, it's so that we know by this knowledge, we know what doesn't happen all the time it is so that we grow when we

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

give myself a better opportunity to stay away from that shall act are those less than designed to take us away from the obedience of the law. So kind of what time later.

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

So the first two doors will close on this one,

00:15:20--> 00:15:20

the title,

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

which is the last one, the door of anger

00:15:29--> 00:15:30

will be closed.

00:15:35--> 00:15:46

So, yes, we say yes, with someone, we close down with having patience. And with being mean forbearance, which also goes back to

00:15:47--> 00:16:35

it has its roots in which you are knowledgeable of a loss of handle what's added, because what is it that's going to make the patient except that you are trying to be patient for a loss of habitat, but you are waiting for this reward, again. And so the point here is not to belabor the issue of knowledge. But I think that it is something that is extremely important for us to always remember that we need to learn more about the being of a loss of habitat. And, quite frankly, you know, we hear these reminders, often. But if you leave, and you don't have a plan for yourself, there's not going to be an increase in numbers. And I'm not talking about I'm not talking about you joining a

00:16:35--> 00:16:52

particular Institute or doing this or doing that. And the reality is, is that the majority of the Muslims do not have the time to dedicate large chunks of the debate, to seeking knowledge.

00:16:54--> 00:16:59

It's not like that now. And it wasn't like that at the time of the Prophet, it is a lot to say.

00:17:02--> 00:17:06

So we're not going to sit up here and pretend that this is the case.

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

At the same time,

00:17:09--> 00:17:21

we can't be a people who are all enough. Either I'm going to be a student who wants to go to the Arab world or somewhere else, and I'm going to, you know, dedicate my life to this.

00:17:23--> 00:17:31

Or, you know, I'll catch a lecture here. And if you can't, that is not the way you build your theme. It is through consistency.

00:17:32--> 00:17:50

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the most beloved actions to last pantalla are those that are most consistent, even if they mean few. Right? So we can take the example on American heritage, we can take the example of There's a famous story about the tortoise and the hare, right?

00:17:52--> 00:18:01

You got the one that's running, and then it looks back, and he smiles, he sees all the way back there. And he chills and relaxing and this guy just

00:18:02--> 00:18:06

little by little. So if you'd like to tour this, you'll get a shot.

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

Take a half hour,

00:18:10--> 00:18:13

and just listen to something about this left

00:18:14--> 00:18:20

hand alone, you brothers have opportunities that did not exist. But for those of you who are around,

00:18:22--> 00:18:33

you know, back in the days, they say, you know, that needs to wait for weeks, so and so's on this part of the country. And they gave a lecture who's to wait for weeks to get the tape to tape.

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

Right?

00:18:36--> 00:18:37

They make those anymore.

00:18:39--> 00:18:56

The number like certain brothers in each city by one brother designated in each city, he had the one by three, he would record and we would wait. You know, because we were waiting for the knowledge. Now some kind of like this, pick up your phone, you can get the latest.

00:18:57--> 00:19:14

But we're not taking advantage of that technology. We're not using it in a way that has been efficient. And there's so much out there that has been efficient. And if you just take a half hour day, you will see in two months you will see the difference in between.

00:19:15--> 00:19:39

You'll see the difference in your children's needs. So it's critical that you leave here with a plan how am I going to increase myself and not don't just say some kind of religion joined that Arabic class that started a month ago wait for the next one to come around. And then the fire burns out and it's over. And you forgot all about start from today? Because the Prophet is selectively said and

00:19:41--> 00:19:56

he said to me 1015 minutes that they are to less than that many people are modeling boom feeling that they are cheated out that they don't take advantage

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

as they had to

00:20:01--> 00:20:02

In free time,

00:20:03--> 00:20:08

what does that mean? That means that you are supposed to as a Muslim,

00:20:09--> 00:20:18

you get all this self help stuff. As a Muslim, you are required to have time meant.

00:20:20--> 00:20:40

See, a lot of times when we talk about the colors of this thing, and we're supposed to be dutiful, to like, talk to our parents and these types of things, we neglect the fact that there's a whole side of this land that the promise of lack of the Sun has encouraged us to do. And we're going out trying to find the latest self help book.

00:20:44--> 00:20:57

So the issue is, we we as Muslims, in this part of Time management is part of it. And actually, you know, if you ever hear Muslim, say, I need to kill some time,

00:20:58--> 00:21:03

we won't have time to kill, we really don't like the love of time, and you said

00:21:06--> 00:21:10

it's a luxury to get up in the morning, don't wait for the evening to come.

00:21:12--> 00:21:15

And listen to me get to the even cannot wait for the point, it's

00:21:18--> 00:21:27

it's very possible that a lost child is not allowed to live to that moment. So you have to take them, there's no such thing. As a Muslim, we don't have a concept you can.

00:21:28--> 00:21:38

If, at the end of the day, a lot less this will be these things here that have actually that you can put the crime on and you can just read the Brian, you have an extra 30 minutes

00:21:40--> 00:21:43

into something that is that is beneficial, like

00:21:45--> 00:21:47

part of novels that I want to talk about tonight.

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

I think that

00:21:52--> 00:21:59

it is time for us as Muslims in this country, to mature in our discourse about Islam.

00:22:00--> 00:22:12

And a lot of times we approach this land, from an issue based standpoint, we look at, you know, we learn issues that are really learning the slang.

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

So you know, the latest

00:22:16--> 00:22:48

issue on the market is whatever. And then we go learn solid, rather plain Gray was hands down on the side of his mouth. And we need to go back and read the books and try to figure out how to convince him to put his hands on his chest. Right? And so this edition, and so I hope that you now memorize all the different fifth opinions about that and and if you say put it here and you haven't seen him, and then I learned okay now and I put it all together and then and then what happened at the end benefited greatly, greatly, greatly praised the way praising Allah, sometimes Allah will judge him and does he want to tell us so?

00:22:50--> 00:22:52

I really want to see him like, a little deeper.

00:22:54--> 00:23:00

So I know you brothers here. Haven't had the luxury of having camel meat. But

00:23:01--> 00:23:01

it's good.

00:23:08--> 00:23:09

You see that hump? You know that hump? If

00:23:14--> 00:23:20

you know, a camel has a hump, right? I'm just making sure that I'm saying hey, what is that hump?

00:23:26--> 00:23:52

That's why camel is with me because because all the fat goes up into the hump. And so you see in the Okay, so the handling wellhead says that it can lead to breach and we'll do right? All the rest of the the event or the beginning of each campaign it doesn't break into. Alright. Okay, so then go back and study the issue.

00:23:54--> 00:24:01

Okay, fine. If you pray behind somebody who does not believe that can when he breaks his will do.

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

You guys go out, we go out.

00:24:07--> 00:24:21

And we eat all together. We all need to go meet him. And you are on the belief that you studied and you know everything inside out, you know the authenticity of each Haddington, who narrated what number it is in the books.

00:24:22--> 00:24:32

And so this brother here is like I hear everything you're saying. However, I believe that that kind of design and he gets up, he's the man and he starts praying.

00:24:33--> 00:24:34

Can you pray behind him?

00:24:37--> 00:24:39

If you can, if you can pray behind raging

00:24:42--> 00:24:46

if you can pray behind reason, but if you can't print behind

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

you absolutely can pray

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

without a doubt even

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

All inside yourself.

00:25:04--> 00:25:11

Let me change the question. If you got the Ukrainian wrapping to do, could you pray about it? You know?

00:25:12--> 00:25:27

Now, this is an interesting point. Because what, because it's about your position with a lump hammer attack, it's about what you believe and aligns with job is going to judge you accordingly.

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

So

00:25:31--> 00:25:34

now when we go back, then we start doing this issue by issue.

00:25:36--> 00:25:41

The reality is, if you did that, you would come 3040 years later?

00:25:43--> 00:25:44

And what would you have?

00:25:45--> 00:25:46

A bunch of issues?

00:25:48--> 00:25:49

I mean, not like

00:25:52--> 00:25:58

you would you would have memorized or you would know, a bunch of issues. But would you live notice? Let's

00:25:59--> 00:26:01

see. So the issue is,

00:26:03--> 00:26:15

to to kind of take a step back and say, Where did we go wrong? and educating the people? And where did we go long wrong in our learning of this man.

00:26:17--> 00:26:33

The reality is, if we take a step back, we realize that it is very important for us to learn the Maxim's of the universals, those broad principles that this man is based upon.

00:26:35--> 00:26:37

Tonight, I'm going to talk about this one of those principles,

00:26:39--> 00:26:48

just so that you can get a feel for what it means to learn a principle that a maxim something that is land is built upon.

00:26:50--> 00:27:03

To go back to an men document will now serve a certain document. It's not because he is a very special scholar means the shape of shape what they mean.

00:27:04--> 00:27:15

But But what made him very special, in minds, is that he was able to take many of the books of the earlier scholars of Islam and

00:27:17--> 00:27:25

reword them in a manner that made it easier, he was able to simplify the knowledge of the early scholars themselves.

00:27:26--> 00:27:31

And so there is a principle that they were not claiming a hammer was very heavy.

00:27:32--> 00:27:38

And that is the principle that this Deen is built upon muscle,

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

which means benefit. The entire religion is built upon benefit and recovering harm.

00:27:48--> 00:27:59

So if there is a ruling, in which the harm of their own outweighs the benefit that it is not frontiersmen, then it is not

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

no safety de bajo la. He has a book. And I honestly hope that

00:28:07--> 00:28:21

some of you brothers who may know Arabic and English very well take the time to get to this book, hopefully it will be translated into English. It's called collide, one soon agenda.

00:28:26--> 00:29:08

So it's called the principles, comprehensive principles and Maxim's are comprehensive principles and universals. And what he does is he frame the first one, the second one, the third one, and shake, have an opinion on him a long time, as explained in a very beneficial book, The first principle that he makes, and this is something that this is basically what I want you to leave with tonight, is this principle that allows him in the time has not mandated anything, he has only mandated that which is purely beneficial. That which has a pure benefit, or a proprietary

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

that's number one,

00:29:12--> 00:29:21

the second half of it, and he has not prohibited anything, except that it is pure harm,

00:29:22--> 00:29:24

or that it's harms proponents.

00:29:26--> 00:29:42

We have four sections. The whole D is built upon this. And his poetry is with Dino McNeil, and I don't know sign up. We just we have a team of friends, that this deal is built upon a Masonic

00:29:44--> 00:29:52

interest of people the benefit that which is beneficial to the people attract and tracking the benefit and becoming our whole team is built.

00:29:53--> 00:29:54

But let's look at this principle.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

He says a lot only

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

mandates that which is purely beneficial. Like, give me an example of something that is truly beneficial.

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

But

00:30:19--> 00:30:21

can't see.

00:30:23--> 00:30:40

Anyone I have, I'll take issue with them for the simple fact that a person has to take it out as well. So it may be, there may be a degree of harm in it, but there's no doubt that the benefit outweighs the harm. But what is the first thing to realize we'll go commands.

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

So he

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

told me,

00:30:48--> 00:31:08

is the first command in the grind. And that was that was the profit is selected pursuant to worship a loss of habitat alone. And there is no doubt that tawheed is purely beneficial. Because when you become a slave of a loss of habitat, and our philosophy is to heat

00:31:10--> 00:31:10

that

00:31:11--> 00:31:12

up

00:31:13--> 00:31:17

from the greatest benefits of tawheed, is that you become free.

00:31:21--> 00:31:24

asleep, what does the slave want more than anything?

00:31:25--> 00:31:28

free, free, he was playing,

00:31:29--> 00:31:34

he was playing the house, a spouse to enter a slave once free

00:31:37--> 00:31:47

from the greatest benefits up to him from the greatest virtues until he is that it frees you from bondage to the creation.

00:31:49--> 00:32:03

Okay, because the reality is, if you're not worshiping the lowest penalty, let alone that your heart is attached to other things. And those things control your heart and you are enslaved to those things.

00:32:04--> 00:32:06

From an album providing a token,

00:32:07--> 00:32:11

you have really liked, we put them off noting what time

00:32:13--> 00:32:15

we're holding him on a jet.

00:32:16--> 00:32:36

It frees us from being attached to those things from fearing those things from hoping in those things. When all of that is attached to us. That's pure benefit. Because the lies that we tell them is the only one that can bring their home or bring their benefit. And so when you come to become a true story of a lost family, you're free.

00:32:38--> 00:32:42

And that's a deep concept, because you have to willingly be a slave

00:32:43--> 00:32:44

to be free.

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

Till he is pure.

00:32:50--> 00:32:52

Something is later then

00:32:54--> 00:33:01

has a proprietary, but that is that the benefit of it outweighs the harm. But there is definitely some harm the sisters notice.

00:33:03--> 00:33:03

That's

00:33:09--> 00:33:10

polygyny.

00:33:12--> 00:33:13

Yeah, we don't talk about

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

any brothers have to

00:33:19--> 00:33:19

share.

00:33:27--> 00:33:29

Everybody is Toby.

00:33:38--> 00:33:50

So now that we're on a serious note, because what what oftentimes happens is we get these casted ankles. So somebody's got a second wife and shouldn't,

00:33:51--> 00:33:54

right, because he's got both women on lovely.

00:33:59--> 00:34:37

Or, I mean, he can't emotionally deal with it to the end, right? So that brother should not get to watch. And then when he does, there's chaos. And so then he says CC, that's why See, and then and there is a lot of philosophy behind it what approximately, someone was only married to conceives magnesium only for the first, you know, 15 years and then he only married the other ones to bring the tribes together and this one was an orphan and that that was whatever, you know, the whole philosophy comes out of me to collapse that's by and large, we don't make it Hello, then that means that it is beneficial,

00:34:39--> 00:34:48

meaning very loose, more beneficial than harmful as a system, not for every individual.

00:34:49--> 00:35:00

We understand because a lot of times people take it and they think that be okay, it's allowed but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's right for this person.

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

But that person, but as a system, it is more beneficial for society, the manner

00:35:08--> 00:35:10

and honestly, it

00:35:11--> 00:35:20

is. So this is an example of something that is beneficial, but there's some harm, there's some harm because even in situations where is right,

00:35:21--> 00:35:22

the system is not going to be able to see

00:35:24--> 00:35:38

his kids are not going to be able to see him on a daily basis with that may be something that is more beneficial for them. Right. So there's a there's a degree of harmony. But when you look at the benefit for society as a whole, then there's no doubt that Aleister would tell us

00:35:40--> 00:35:44

He is the most knowledgeable, he has the most wisdom.

00:35:46--> 00:35:49

He is aware of solidity and sublime

00:35:51--> 00:36:09

would not permit something in which the harm of outweighs the benefit. But the point is that it's not a pure benefit that we need to understand that this man has that which is purely beneficial. And that which is that was the benefit of it now please.

00:36:11--> 00:36:15

Look at some things which are purely harmful.

00:36:19--> 00:36:22

Sure, sure. The opposite is pure,

00:36:24--> 00:36:29

something that the harm of it outweighs the benefit though there may be some benefit.

00:36:30--> 00:36:31

He said rebellious,

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

rebellious, rebellious.

00:36:37--> 00:36:45

Drinking alcohol, and gambling, okay. All of these things have a degree of benefit.

00:36:46--> 00:36:52

And even for some people, you know, it comes out on them, you know, the interest thing, we live in America,

00:36:53--> 00:37:17

basically, I mean, they're not gonna say it like that. But basically, it's, well, I don't, I don't understand. Because, really, if you look at it, if I go rent this place, I'm going to be paying 2500 a month, and if I just get a mortgage, then I can pay like 19 a month. And then at the end of 30 years, I'm gonna own it at the end of 30 years, and I'm paying for my own.

00:37:18--> 00:37:25

That's the thought process. So therefore, my critical for myself is that rebbes.

00:37:27--> 00:37:37

And then, if one telling you, this is a dangerous ideology, but it's it's crept into the oma, especially here.

00:37:39--> 00:37:46

And there's a lot of reasons for keeping in here. But that is that if I don't understand the ration now,

00:37:47--> 00:37:50

I don't understand the ration now, but I don't have to do

00:37:52--> 00:38:04

now, I'll give you an example. But you just heard, because I know that a law said in the Koran and every bed is hot, like as in he actually said what Helen Laughlin

00:38:05--> 00:38:08

will have one of the best that he knows. And then we use

00:38:10--> 00:38:10

a lovely

00:38:12--> 00:38:18

buying and selling train, he made that cut out and he made the bad part. So the person understand that.

00:38:19--> 00:38:36

But because they don't understand why they think they have the option of you know, basically neglecting that, that that command. So absolutely like this. How many of us are your parents? Your children, okay.

00:38:38--> 00:38:43

Your kid comes in the house. And you have a chocolate bar

00:38:45--> 00:38:55

in the in the refrigerator, chocolate bar, and so peanuts and you know that your child is allergic to peanuts. Okay. So you tell you the kid opens up?

00:38:57--> 00:39:06

No, can you walk up? Not? Okay. You don't have the obligation to facilitate explaining what the ingredients are.

00:39:08--> 00:39:14

Okay, 20 minutes later, you get a phone call. They need to go to emergency room full.

00:39:15--> 00:39:16

blown up. What happened?

00:39:19--> 00:39:30

Why? Because their rationale was that he just go along. He wanted me to eat lunch first. He told me not to eat the candy bar because I mean,

00:39:31--> 00:39:32

so much.

00:39:36--> 00:39:44

That wasn't the reason. But because the intellect of the child is not there yet.

00:39:46--> 00:39:50

They are doing their own rationale. They understood the command don't eat them only.

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

If that is the difference between you and your child, which has been what 20 years apart with 30 years of party, something like that. Fine.

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

Understand, we're about to demonstrate us the hokulani.

00:40:04--> 00:40:06

Why do we think that we have the right

00:40:07--> 00:40:14

to require that we understand the rationale behind every single thing before we implement the commands,

00:40:15--> 00:40:16

you are a slave

00:40:17--> 00:40:18

of almost

00:40:19--> 00:40:36

free yourself from being the slave of yourself. Follow the commands of the last minute and if you grow in knowledge below, you will understand the rationale. It means that on a personal note, I understand today that I didn't understand five years ago, not understood five years

00:40:37--> 00:40:47

10 years before and it makes perfect sense as we grow and we mature and are not. It does not give us the right to disobey Allah subhana

00:40:48--> 00:41:10

wa rebbeck Okay, so the system of revenge so here we go. rebag may be beneficial for a specific individual in a specific situation. But the system of Rebeck is not beneficial to society. All it does is make the rich get richer, and the poor, the poor.

00:41:11--> 00:41:19

And it makes people attached to the dunion because what they do is go out and live beyond their means.

00:41:21--> 00:41:24

Then keep up with the Joneses for the Johnsons.

00:41:29--> 00:41:29

All right.

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

So, alcohol and gambling, the same thing, the last minute that I mentioned alcohol and gambling a number of times in the grind to get one, what's the connection between the alcohol and gaming

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

to connect alcohol with something to drink? And when?

00:41:50--> 00:41:54

what's the what's the connection? The pitch,

00:41:55--> 00:41:57

people get addicted to vote. So last

00:41:59--> 00:42:01

time, it could

00:42:02--> 00:42:03

be woman.

00:42:05--> 00:42:08

Next, but this moment, I probably

00:42:09--> 00:42:22

must ask you about 100 meter dash about intoxicants and gambling, saying that in them would be human if there was a great sin woman that invented

00:42:25--> 00:42:29

lots of the day some benefit in alcohol and gaming.

00:42:31--> 00:42:34

And if you have somebody who wins the lottery, they'll tell you that there was a great benefit.

00:42:37--> 00:42:39

What happened? What was the issue?

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

At vote

00:42:44--> 00:42:51

the sin that is involved in them is greater than the benefit. So here to see that

00:42:53--> 00:43:45

has made it impermissible like we get to application here. So what are we doing it we are doing what they call weighing the pros and the cons to weigh muscle and muscle you're weighing the pros and the cons the benefit and the harm and that is every aspect of the man. It does that mean that you can override a clear text, isn't it? Because you believe that something is more beneficial than another but understanding this principle helps us in the following ways number one, it will help us to understand why certain things had been made permissible or influence. The good thing what is today

00:43:47--> 00:43:51

did you guys get rain here one day like heavy heavy rain

00:43:54--> 00:43:55

Sunday night

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

so

00:44:05--> 00:44:09

we got really really heavy on Monday night.

00:44:10--> 00:44:15

And so what happened was the man by the side

00:44:16--> 00:44:20

so he pretty much live and then right after lovely the printing the chef

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

now

00:44:25--> 00:44:32

we're residents. Correct. And the last one data says with Brian in the saliva Canada we need

00:44:33--> 00:44:41

more gluten. That the salaat is upon the believers to crave saliva and they're fixed that

00:44:42--> 00:44:46

now we combine in the West.

00:44:47--> 00:44:50

Why are you allowed to combine

00:44:51--> 00:44:54

and the message even though you're supposed to pray? You're

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

welcome

00:45:03--> 00:45:04

Well, what benefited,

00:45:06--> 00:45:13

benefited people benefited the people you were praying, eventually you go home and was to, to wet the house.

00:45:18--> 00:45:27

Because there is a benefit in praying in Japan, and praying in Japan, and being together as a Japan.

00:45:29--> 00:45:46

And so that benefit takes precedence over the benefit of praying at the right time is but 90 praying in specific time, especially because there are other instances in the [???]tier, which allow us to pray,

00:45:47--> 00:45:50

combined, like when you're training, for example.

00:45:53--> 00:46:11

So now we get, we get to understand, oh, this is why that's like that, because our beam is consistent. Islam is consistent. We have consistency in our religion, when it comes to this principle, we, so that's number one. The second thing is that

00:46:12--> 00:46:17

we may begin to better understand a lot of the fatalities have

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

given a certain fatality. Many, many, many of the fatality during that game are based on this principle of winning the heart, and the good of the situation. And a lot of times is a judgment call. So for example, you know, we have situations where a woman may genuinely fear for her life. If she wears,

00:46:50--> 00:46:56

then that may not be everywhere. And people have different circumstances depending on where they are

00:46:57--> 00:47:00

here in America, but the point is they want to make

00:47:02--> 00:47:10

a scholarly duper flexible, because you're going to weigh that arm and that benefit. Obviously, there's a Harmon we're taking off her PJ.

00:47:11--> 00:47:15

But the harm of her being killed if or harm

00:47:16--> 00:47:19

to somebody to hurt her.

00:47:22--> 00:47:58

If that is a reality, and it's not something that's just a figment of her imagination, that there's in reality, there are people who want to harm the Muslims in this particular areas, nobody knew that, then defects was going to be the she can take off her dead, that's not a tenable. That's what we are now going to come and we're going to weigh the pros and the cons. And that's part of our deep. This is not just something that, oh, yeah, we need to make judgment call judgment calls. And, you know, we need to learn this horrifying thing that we weigh the harms and the benefits and situations. The third point.

00:47:59--> 00:48:00

And

00:48:02--> 00:48:30

this is the point that I think is appropriate for everyone here is that we can grow by understanding this principle of methodical defense of the way the pros and the cons. We can grow in our appreciation for the diversity of opinions that exist amongst the scholars of Islam, and we can begin to incorporate in our own lives. The way that we look at the

00:48:33--> 00:48:35

if you take an example

00:48:36--> 00:48:40

of that, let's just say, for the brothers here who have accepted

00:48:41--> 00:48:43

and whose parents may not.

00:48:46--> 00:48:49

Let's just say a brother's mom calls him up.

00:48:50--> 00:48:54

And she says, I'm gross with me $200.

00:48:56--> 00:48:57

She has a gambling problem.

00:49:02--> 00:49:03

What is this?

00:49:08--> 00:49:08

No,

00:49:09--> 00:49:14

no, because he lives in Maryland, does she live in Alaska?

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

What does he do?

00:49:21--> 00:49:22

He sends her money.

00:49:23--> 00:49:38

There's a possibility that she's going to use it again. Matter of fact, had she not had a gambling problem. She wouldn't need the groceries. So in effect, you're paying for her. Or again, you're supporting a family.

00:49:39--> 00:49:40

So he didn't

00:49:44--> 00:49:53

answer the question. I want you to think about you have a situation here where you have to weigh your pros and your parents, that's your mother.

00:49:55--> 00:49:58

And she wasted her money but she genuinely needs groceries now.

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

But

00:50:04--> 00:50:12

the point is you do have a situation here, you have to make a you as a Muslim, you have to make a judgment call, you do.

00:50:13--> 00:50:29

If there's somebody vows available to you that you can bounce ideas off, that's a great thing, but not everybody has. The thing here is that the more you grow, this is one, you know, maximum, university that spans every aspect of it, there's, the more

00:50:30--> 00:50:46

the more you born, and what I'm telling you right now is literally baby food. I mean, this this particular principle, and then we can stay on it for, you know, 10 hours or so, and still just get a cursory understanding. But the issue is what I am suggesting,

00:50:47--> 00:51:13

for those of you who are blind, or those of you who have the responsibility of educating others, and for those of you who want to learn your religions, encourage those who are teaching to teach you these universals of this name, because it is going to help you understand your deen and see it as something that is complete and whole. And then you can take the issue by issue, some of them are not going to say anything, and

00:51:15--> 00:51:31

some of them are less significant than others. But the point is, you'll be able to put everything into perspective. And this principle, and is supported by so much benefits in this time and time to go into any

00:51:32--> 00:51:45

Willemstad, but I will give you some so that you can feel comfortable that our team is built on this principle, a lot of data. So let's assume that you're the only one doing them for the simple law at the moment.

00:51:47--> 00:52:13

He said, Do not revive those who are the items that they are caught that they are that they worship, besides so that they will not, in turn, revive the loss of chemical data, or assault of us kind of data in retaliation because of their ignorance. So what do we have here? Is there a benefit in insulting

00:52:14--> 00:52:16

the the false gods?

00:52:17--> 00:52:18

Is there a benefit in

00:52:20--> 00:52:26

this? No, because why? Because, because it shows that they're false.

00:52:27--> 00:52:46

you highlight the fact that these are false deities, and that there's only one deity worthy of worship. But if that is going to lead to them, in turn, now insulting the loss of habitat and revive them, then now we have to weigh the harm and the benefit of that don't do it. Because at least by

00:52:47--> 00:52:50

the How many of you have been to Mecca?

00:52:55--> 00:53:03

So you've seen the tab, the tab looks like a few. Right. And then there's a a semicircle.

00:53:04--> 00:53:10

on the north side, on the north side of the cabinet, what does that semicircle call

00:53:15--> 00:53:58

they call it right? Okay, that that semicircle is actually part of the car as part of the foundation of the cabin. And actually a long time after probably somebody that is not part of the the top of the population said yes. And she said, Well, then why wasn't it built up all the way like the rest of the garden? The process of learning something new york, people ran out of funds and like, they have enough fun, so we just like basically put that that imprinting. Okay, so then she asked about the door, Why is the door high to the point that you need a ladder to get up into the cabinet. And the prompts are some explained, that always wanted to be able to

00:53:59--> 00:54:06

prevent people from just freaking entering into the gap. So then the practice of like a subset of

00:54:07--> 00:54:17

the two people have just recently left at me, and they just recently entered into a snake. I will have built the cabin up on the foundations and

00:54:18--> 00:54:31

Built it up with that in place. And I will put a door on the side on the west side so that the people can enter from one door and exit from the other except that it may agitate up.

00:54:32--> 00:54:59

In what sense, the fact that okay, they already knew to a snake. And now you're coming in with changing the copper as well. This is something that may have met with that it's settled in their hearts right. And so the prophecy lives on in order to keep them settled on a slanted map to the left. He was weighing the pros and the cons in the scope on the long term and when he was

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

In a minute, and for those of you who want to record the points a minute,

00:55:05--> 00:55:11

the profit is off as soon as you don't pray to recognize for each of the Select, and you know, put it

00:55:12--> 00:55:13

in the chat.

00:55:14--> 00:55:15

But Rosemary used to pray

00:55:17--> 00:55:17

for

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

it smooth Roni a long time. And we had a problem with that problem. He said, I prayed behind the prophecy, so to rakats, my brain behind me buckler to work fast and afraid behind the Roma on the low side of the animal to rock x. And now a man prays for and then guess what they did and pray for? Buy. There's been so I can't

00:55:40--> 00:55:44

you just say ABC and D. and then pray for it. He said, a

00:55:47--> 00:55:48

different scheme,

00:55:49--> 00:56:08

different people, we need to stick together. And so he is waiting, what muscle how much you see my whole beam the whole day, it is not just our theme that is the [???]ty How did that interact with Sudan, but it is Islam in totality.

00:56:09--> 00:56:10

What the

00:56:12--> 00:56:15

Who came with two days of Judaism, which

00:56:20--> 00:56:21

no Prophet came to the

00:56:24--> 00:56:26

Prophet came with Christianity.

00:56:32--> 00:56:33

Okay with Christianity.

00:56:37--> 00:56:39

All of the profits came with this land.

00:56:40--> 00:56:43

All of the profits came with this land,

00:56:44--> 00:56:45

in the deal, and in the long

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

run, they're living in

00:56:50--> 00:57:03

Islam, all of the practice came with Islam. But each one of them had their own [???]ty mathematics. Each messenger has its own shunyata some of the prophets vallabhacharya.

00:57:04--> 00:57:07

So how to follow the the shinyanga.

00:57:18--> 00:57:30

So, if we look at the end, I guess I'll just wrap it up with this. If we look at the shipyard Mussa, same concept of Messiah much

00:57:32--> 00:57:46

the story of Mossad is that it was for 40 days to receive revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this was accurate, this money has been insane from zero.

00:57:48--> 00:57:54

They were still under pressure. And how boom, moose is what I would say left

00:57:56--> 00:57:58

over budget aside

00:58:00--> 00:58:07

and told him to oscillate, to rectify the situation to be on top of them to teach them oversee the situation.

00:58:08--> 00:58:09

llamosa was

00:58:11--> 00:58:14

now, almost it came back. He had the 10.

00:58:15--> 00:58:17

Right, which had the revelation.

00:58:18--> 00:58:20

What did he see when he came back?

00:58:22--> 00:58:33

He saw a group of beggars I wasn't all of them. He saw a group from ready to start worshipping the cat now must have saved them because

00:58:34--> 00:58:52

they now just after they turn it back on a deals, the Sammy will build the golden cat for them. And they began to worship that golden cat and Moosa could not contain themselves. It couldn't contain himself down to 10.

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

And he took his brother by the pool.

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

And he said to him, why didn't she come tell me what they did?

00:59:07--> 00:59:08

And you can tell him

00:59:09--> 00:59:11

how long the response for moose is.

00:59:14--> 00:59:19

is indicative of what we're talking about right now, which is Wayne the Harmon event. He sets

00:59:21--> 00:59:24

amongst other things in the Koshi. And

00:59:28--> 00:59:29

I fear

00:59:30--> 00:59:35

that you would say to me, that you have caused the division amongst things.

00:59:39--> 00:59:41

They were worshipping the cat

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

as opposed to a loss of habitat. And he tried to stop them. He did. He said, he tried to stop them and say, No, como esta la Hoon? What can be up to me? But they were about to kill me because he was in the back and forth. Right. So he backed

01:00:00--> 01:00:20

And he didn't go say anything to move Saturday, so hard to say. Because with him, that venue just want to stay together under those circumstances, even though he's going to start worshiping, again, that they stay together was more beneficial than some of them splitting off from us.

01:00:21--> 01:00:28

So he had the concept of weighing, harm and benefit, but he was correct. And that is, besides

01:00:29--> 01:01:12

the fact that there was that process when it came to the corrective, who didn't understand. But the fact that there was that process of weighing the benefits and the harm. So this is something that, again, there's a lot that needs to be said about this issue. But I want you brothers to consider this, in every decision that is being made, in your personal lives, and in your lives, as Muslims in the massages, and so on and so forth. That the Muslim, the benefit of staying together, of being together, as one democracy takes precedence over everything else in the mess.

01:01:14--> 01:01:20

Being together as a Jamaican, and we are not, we do not have the luxury

01:01:22--> 01:01:36

of being divided. And that does not mean that if we see something wrong, that we stay silent. I'm not saying that, it does mean that we have to have a point that we don't allow things to break.

01:01:39--> 01:01:44

Like the Prophet is selective of Sudan when he spoke about the difference between the husband and the wife.

01:01:46--> 01:01:50

And he talked about women being gentle creatures.

01:01:52--> 01:01:59

That if you press them too hard, that they may break, but customer have palapa and the breaking hurts.

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

Right, that to the point of break, that we have to begin to recognize that as brothers because when we come together as brothers and sisters, when we come together, we like to see things the same way all the time.

01:02:15--> 01:02:16

And it's okay.

01:02:17--> 01:02:40

We can engage in discourse. This is the way I see it. This is why we see it that way. But the point that is going to get that now we break our to math, then we've gone too far. Because the future generations of this theme and the future generations of Muslims in this country, depend on us keeping these institutions together, and keeping them stable.

01:02:42--> 01:02:55

Developing stabilization and sustainability and fire institutions. This is something that is critical. And that's not what will happen if we keep the bottom over every single little issue. And again, I'm not saying

01:02:56--> 01:03:10

to make this very clear. I'm not saying that you let everything slide. But I'm saying that you have to pick and choose your battles that you need to wait. The best way to benefit in the army and all of those situations will long

01:03:13--> 01:03:13

run
