bad. So today inshallah Dinah we're going to cover lessons four and five from the tree of faith. So good to see where we are. Last week we were supposed to cover the beginning of developing Eman. So we'll be talking about developing Amanda talking about what is it that helps to strengthen your faith? What is it that nurtures that faith causes it to grow.
And number five, which is also the developing e man part two.
So because we weren't here last week, we want to do both of those classes today and inshallah tada in the next week, we'll start with the fruits of men that were not able to finish strengthening, ie men. Today, that's fine, we'll be able to cover
you know, whatever is left next week, and I mentioned it will be able to finish today in the lab. Okay, so what we're going to do first is a quick review of before we start with today's lessons, because we have to especially because we missed last week, we kind of got to get back up to speed. So the first thing
that's important to recognize is that actions are from EMF. And we talked about proofs for that, because this is talking about man from a linguistic perspective. What is he meant?
I mean, even if you were to translate it good, would you translate it? Faith? And normally when we think of faith, without any
other, you know, definitions, if you will, what are we where is that faith located? In the heart, right? And that's where it's restricted to, and we needed to understand and this is why we started and you're going to see some of the reasons why today why we started dealing with number one definition defining event because Allah subhana wa tada and his messengers have a lot of it with some of them have added on restrictions to linguistic definitions or expanded those definitions according to the Sharia,
or the Sharia. as defined by a lot of hands on and as much as I
have not read defined words per se, but have given them a more defined meaning or expanded those those meetings so we gave for example definition of Salaam
Salaam Salaam we translate this prayer, right? If you go not talking to a Muslim, if you go to somebody you say prayer, what do they think of
the way they pray? Not just the way they want to have a break.
Do I write I prayed to God What does that means that I may ask God for something. Right? That's what prayer is. But in even in Islam, even in Arabic, and do I linguistically awkward salaat linguistically means that it means the supplicant.
But then his name came and put a more definitive meaning to it and other restrictions to help us understand. So same thing with email that we talked about in the last class that actions are from email
that this is the
ASCII though or the creed of Addison and that there are many different proofs that indicate that So what are some of those proofs?
What are some of those groups?
Okay, so what about some of the ads right what uh, what is 70 you
know, what is the man event man right? He man the problem so why he was so upset he meant bids alone was about only sharper than 70 some odd components, the highest of them is
and the lowest of them is actually removing something from the from the role and what is from even
higher, right that shamefulness that modesty that all that that is from email.
Like what else? Give me another proof that actions are from email from the Koran.
Where did the Where did Where did the Where did the Muslims used to pray with direction
towards the direction of Alaska and then the Qibla was changed to what
making sure we all pray and sing the right.
so it was changed doors the gap. And what happened to what was the concern of some of the believers when it was saying
that they were Muslims who had died prior to praying towards the cat where they had only prayed towards to have maximal oxygen. And so a large window reassuring them that these would be accepted. And he said what Matt can alone?
That alone would not cause your email to go to waste. What was he talking about? He managed this a lot you wouldn't call this select to go to so unless Medina equated man with salaat. And that's because salon is part of email.
So that's a clear indication.
And that's it's by his Mac of the scholars associate thoroughly scholars associate that he meant here is that last month I was talking about a salaat. Like, why are righteous deeds mentioned separately from email and a law statement? Those who have faith and do righteous deeds? just said the deeds are from a man Why are they mentioned separately?
At least some of you took notes, because I see you going back
when the man is mentioning is talking about belief alone. Okay, separate from Okay, so one answer to that would be that when he man is mentioned with righteous deeds, that he man refers to the conviction of the heart. And in righteous deeds states only separately the same way when we have Islam and he meant and there's no problem with that. And that's understood linguistically in Arabic and in English. And Arabic games is another answer.
is another that is one answer. That's one of the answers that I would certainly use to
to counter the argument of the mortgage it
was the other. I'll give you an example.
Okay, well, that that's similar to what we have here because I need them to really add man and slam mentioned at the same time. So Eman is referring to those beliefs and actions of the heart. Whereas Islam deals with the actions of the limbs.
But there's another
there's another answer that assuming it and that is as it relates to what that even from a linguistic perspective, it's okay to add something on
to a previous now
as long as you're expanding one so
or expanding a lot of data says McKenna and I do what lead you believe. Women can I do what they like when he gets he was who he what you really want me Okay, so whoever is an enemy to Allah and His angels in his messengers into Britain, and UK, like, he said, wherever is an enemy to hope, a lot.
And his angels, his messengers, and
he said, and and, and, and, and
jabril is what he's an angel. And so that's fine, that works in the Arabic language and works in the Firaon, which is the best of speeches and speech of Allah.
And we can things like that in English as well. where you were, you mentioned something else because of its importance. Alright, so here and this is the answer to any man of sin he gave the righteous deeds I mentioned so that nobody thinks that whatever is in the heart alone is enough to enter a person into paradise. They asked me some degree of action, like what are the levels of believers mentioned the Quran three, three.
Okay, so he may commit sins and leave obligations that one is called what?
Enough sees one wrong himself. Right? That's but he's still I believe, still a believer. Allah
said that they are the ones who inherited the book type. Second one, the one who takes the middle course so he does what he's obligated to do, he leaves off major sense, and he makes told before it is his Ellison's not.
And then the last
one goes a lot deeper YTV in the lead those who do what are the foremost and doing good and each one of those levels have multiple levels in between
Fight negation of emails and texts. I just want to comment on this real quick. We have had these, for example, with a promise or some similar law, Ilana, you will love the law you will learn later. By law, he doesn't believe by law, he doesn't believe by law. He doesn't believe I said.
He said the one whose neighbor is not safe from his heart.
Like, does that mean that if somebody harms his neighbor is a Kaffir? Right? So when we normally when we find negation of a man in the texts, when the browser is talking to the Muslims,
with the Muslims are being addressed, like the promise of life or someone says, For example, He believes and so he loves for his brother when he loves himself. What is being negated here is commanded his man.
Right. So what's being negated here is the
is completion of obligatory aspects of faith, the completion of obligatory aspects of faith. Now, somebody might say, wait a minute,
there's parts of a man that aren't obligatory?
What's the answer to that? Yes.
Removing something harmful from the road?
As part of the man
praying too soon as after mother is part of email, right? As a solid, is it when no, so when the Prophet is alive to Sudan negates email, when he says this person doesn't have faith?
Right, and he's addressing the believers, then what he is negating is the completion of an obligatory aspect of faith, not calling them who *. Alright, just want us to understand those are the summary of some of the main points of what we covered. And now
it's time to get the juices flowing.
All right. Number one is to
strengthen faith revolves around two main things. What are the everybody got? Anybody got an answer?
You know, you need an exit visa from this class, right?
All right, number two, go ahead. How does showing gratitude increase your faith, discuss the relationship between a man and sugar
that's thicker on the tongue without thinking about it without focus, have any reward? You know, some people have to
allow them to beam and get anything out.
And they may even talk to somebody they add the beads to? Hey, how you doing? You know, it's just something that I don't even know if that's on the top. But anyway, you get the idea?
The answer might surprise you. Go ahead. What are the five major objectives of the Sharia? How does this relate to increasing Eman? Anybody want to take a stab at that?
Anybody who did that? study overseas?
Let's take a stab at that.
All right. Yeah. Oh, God.
I don't even see what I hear you.
Hold on. Hello. Hello. The five major objectives of the *tier the religion What about the religion?
What are we doing with the religion?
Is to secure Okay, okay, okay.
that's fine. Well,
we can make it a group project if you want to call somebody.
You call on somebody that did not stay overseas.
lineage. lineage, Your Honor. Honor. Okay, that actually is that actually goes hand in hand. Okay, that's three.
Right? Let's want to reverse
your life. So preservation of life. And there's one more
of your mind. You might get mental health you might think Alright, how does this relate to increasing demand? Shall we'll cover it as we go along. nega contains accepted Islam upon seeing the Prophet Allah He slept with Sinead for the first time. How can we benefit
From such stories, increasing our own email,
name at least five ways that the author brought him along. And he mentions that you can strengthen email. Okay, so are we, we clear. This is basically everything we're going to cover today is surrounding the topic of how to increase your neck. All right. And so what I want you to do right now is take a minute,
not with your partner with yourself.
If you don't have a pen,
if you don't have a pen, that's fine. Use your phone and writing in your notes somewhere, I want you to list for yourself five ways, five things you do
that make you feel like your demand increases.
Clear. You have one minute starting. Now five things that you do that you feel increases your email.
Make sure you hold on to them. I do want you to record them because you're going to need them later on.
Okay, got five seconds.
Okay, the time is up, thumbs up, you'll go back to Michelle a little later in the class.
All right. So for those of you who have books, we're gonna start on page 43.
Things 43. In the book, which is chapter two, I know we skipped a section, or a little part of the book that deals with the increase in faith
or that faith fluctuates, Emad increases and decreases. And that's because we covered it along the way. Because we covered that part along the way, like this section.
Let me just kind of draw your attention. For those of you who do have the book.
The translation of this session, while generally accurate, is cumbersome in places. And there are places where there are some inaccuracies. It is not our intention, anyway, to go through the book word for word. So the intention here is to try to cover each of the how many ways that the the author mentioned that our faith increases. Here he mentioned 13 specific ways. All right. So we are going to try to cover each of those 13 ways. That is the intention. But not every single thing that was said under each of those 13. Or we're going to stop and you know, correct the translation and things like that, because the general meanings as a humbling general meanings are there.
All right. The author begins by
first discussing the fact that
Eliza gel has He is the creator of causes and effects. And so
if we want faith to increase, then you have to do certain things that bring about that result that there's a cause and effect relationship with things that happen. They don't just happen by osmosis, even a small sense of cause and effect. But the reality is that the reason why he begins by this is just to show you that Look, you've got to make some effort. If you want your faith to increase, it takes effort. The same way when you go and you plant something you want something to grow, you have to plan and not only that, you have to plan it at the right time, you have to plan it in the right soil, right, you plant plant things out of season, what's going to happen.
you plant it in the wrong soil, you go down to the beach, and you try to plan so
that you can stick as far down as you want, and get all the sun in the world to grow. And so the point that the author begins with is just simply to show that,
that if you want something to happen if you want certain results, you want certain effects
To come into play, then add their causes and bring that about. Alright, so that's the basic thing we start. So he says those things that will strengthen it strengthen Amen, are two categories general and specific, general and specific. Okay, so we're gonna go straight into
right, we're gonna go straight into these specific ways here, the general ways to read oshin.
contemplation, which is a big word for thinking about
the size of a law cited in the book and the sooner
number two, so So interestingly enough, this isn't a translation where he goes 1234 and Arabic that doesn't exist in Arabic, he just kind of goes one, he mentions this as like one thing, and we're gonna break that down, we will unpack it inshallah keep going, contemplating upon the signs of a law in his creation,
desiring to learn the truth, that fulfilled of which is the purpose of one's creation,
before acting upon this truth, all right, so so we look at numbers one and two as or, yeah, the Roman numerals one and two, here, we have had some plating the signs of Allah Subhana, WA, Tada. Now, the signs of a lot, are normally broken down into two separate categories. The one is the signs for is that are in the for
those that are recite, and then we have the signs of a lot of atom konia is the size of a lot in the universe. So the sun,
and its setting and rising signs of the moon, the the sky, I mean, the oceans, all of these are signs of a loss of habitat. They were then what does that mean? Is it the sign? Or the sign do?
direction to something? Right? So these are, these are indications of a loss of data, this will be all right, all of the signs, including hit the signs that are in the prime. So in general, they've broken that. But here is not just that you recognize them recognize them as good.
And it's part of a man's but here he uses the word
or to contemplate to think about, right. And so we've got actually, again, he's mentioned these general things. So the first thing
that he talks about to increase your famous to do what they think
is slam is for the rational square people who think, right, it's not for people who just mimic, mimic, react to what I write mean to think
thinking, thinking man's and thinking woman is really tight. And then he says, desiring to learn the truth, desiring to learn the truth. So another words that a person needs to know what he was created for.
That knowing what you were created for.
And then acting according to that knowledge that you have gained, increases your faith.
So you have knowledge and action, okay. So if we wanted to sum up those four things, as the translator has broken them down into four different things, we wanted to sum them up, we could sum them up with two things,
ranges actions acting according to that now, it starts with
the Holocaust survivor Samoa, women of the mithila when you had said as
when a lot of the health of the community. So here is the end of solid, a lot a lot of data says Allah is the one who created seven heavens and from the earth. That which is like that then that which is like the heavens, the mo the command comes down from Allah Li tagging them so that you know so that you know that Allah is able to do everything and in there yet Allah subhanaw taala says what we're up to agenda will ends in that he will do he created gentlemen time to worship him. But in sauna it's a lot he creates. So that what so that you know in
And so some of the scholars say that a lot caught up in the title the title level wasn't there yet call attorney taboo and and sort of Talat, he created so that you know, and it's sort of there yet he created so that you worship Him. And that is why the majority of the early scholars of a snap said that so he was two categories, one candidate, that one category related to knowledge, and the other category related to a bed
does a story for a different day. The point here is that what that that knowledge of a lot of data has to breed a bet. And that if a person truly knows his creative, so head on what he will worship Him, and He will love to worship,
he will love to worship Him. So Pamela, the same way?
Not not the same
method either. But if we look at the creation,
aren't there people who because of their status in your life, you love to serve them?
No, no doubt about it. There are people that because of the favors that they've done for us, or because of their qualities, because of what they do for the community, because of whatever, whatever it is, we love to serve, we don't even want them to do anything. You just sit back we got right. So handle up. Why because they have certain qualities about them, or because of the favorites that they've done for you. There is no finger that you have accepted the origin of it is a lot of time. And there is nobody who has qualities like a loss of habitat. And so the one who truly knows a lot loves to worship Allah.
So here, that is how your faith, that is how he met his strength. Those two main ideas, and that answers our question. Our first question is strength. And faith revolves around two main themes, that is beneficial knowledge and righteous actions. Now,
before we move on, because we're going to go into some of the specifics, inshallah.
This is very important for us to know, when you get into specific specifics, take take the mind in different places, right, which is good. So it's the same way that, you know, there's a difference between the coach who's sitting on the sideline, and he's watching things from one angle, and the person who's actually in the game, looking at it from a different angle. So sometimes you have to go this is how knowledge is, you have to go deep. And then you come back out, and you gather it all together, and you go back in, that's how things stick. That's what I want you to focus on these two things. I think these two things are very important for us. Because everything that we're doing, we
can ask ourselves, is this beneficial knowledge?
Is this deed a righteous action? If not, your Eman is not increasing. And that sets up. And so what you wind up having to do, and don't get me wrong, Islam is not that you have to Islam does not require that all day, everything you're doing is either a benefit, you know, gaining beneficial knowledge or doing the righteous v slam does not require that of us. Our Prophet is allowed to assign them to a handler for the loan side annual aside, 10. facade is the time for this and isn't time for that. But the problem with us is, we shouldn't make the time equal. It doesn't mean you get, you know, eight hours a day where you know, you you're doing righteous deeds or beneficial
nouns that eight hours a week, you're doing things that totally contradict
that those righteous deeds are beneficial knowledge. And so what happens is, you can start monitoring yourself and saying, is what I'm doing right now?
Helping to increase my man. And if it's not, is it doing the opposite?
Is it causing like man to decrease? Or is it one of those things as they're in the middle of
something that is permissible to do an email out and this is from Fifth Avenue that
used to talk about, and I don't remember the exact exact phrase, but he used to talk about the importance of a level and move back. I mean, which is like permissible play, because it does what
Yeah, it removes you from that realm so that you can go back strong.
It's like It's like building muscle if you lift the same weights every day. The muscle
will never have the chance to do what development never has a chance to strengthen, right. So a lot of times a person is doing the same thing all the time, it loses its effectiveness. Right. And so there has to be some variety, there has to be something else that's going on, so that you can go back stronger. And if you don't, and for that reason, it's like sleep is sleep, is no back. permissible is no reward or sin for sleep. But a person sleeps with the intention of
revitalizing himself so that he can worship the last minutes out of bed and sleep becomes a bed.
Lack of sleep can become hot.
You know, because a person can sleep with the intention of gaining strength to do something, that's fine.
the whole point is, what are we talking about strengthening faith
is strengthened in faith. And remember when we say he, man he man is what statements and actions, that statement of the heart, your beliefs, your actions of the heart, and the actions of the limb. So when we're talking about increasing and strengthening faith, we're not just talking about strengthening conviction, which is going to become clear in the United Tada, as we move on,
knowledge of the beautiful and perfect names of a lot. Those that are currently in the sooner have an argument, strong desire to understand their meanings, and to worship Allah through them. It is established in the two sides is that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam said, a law has 99 names 100, les one, whoever memorizes and understands them will
not. Alright, so again, the author begins with what so now we want to go into specifics, the general is what beneficial knowledge and righteous actions, all of these next 13 that we cover and show losada are going to fall under one of our two broad categories of beneficial knowledge or, or righteous actions.
All right, so we start out with the knowledge of Allah azza wa jal Beautiful Names, Pamela, and,
first question is based off of what was just read, how, how do we know a lot of beautiful names? Where do we find them?
So now the profit is selected.
And those two sources together are called what?
Revelation? And why? So we only know a lot of names through a life through revelation, we can't just come and make it up, you might find somebody who actually would say, wait a minute, where's that name, that name and O'Brien's that name and assuming of the property? So I will say that if not, then we can accept that as the name of the last panel tab, right?
Here, the author says,
Those that occur in the book innocent,
having an ardent desire to understand their meanings, that is number one, number one, when it comes to names of a loss. So you read these names, and you don't just let them run off your tongue. With that you do what? That you understand their meanings. So throughout the course of last time, I mentioned many of his names, and no, Simeon was semi
one hears everything, party one.
One was close moochie one
response, the one who responds Mashallah.
So, I mean, the point as many of you have memorized those the names that are at the end of soda and ketchup, right,
who will allow
Was it the language?
The one who has knowledge of that which is seen and unseen, right? Or unseen, unseen? The point here is that it because I'm not going to go into that right now. So I'll talk about that in a minute. The point is here that the first stage
When we talk about knowledge is number one identifying that this is the name of Allah. And then the second thing is to know the meaning of that name that you have identified. And then he says to worship a law through them now, I'm not a fan of that translation, though. I see how you got it. What does that mean in English? Does that mean anything to you worship along through them?
I'm asking i'm not i'm having to understand what the names mean. Okay. And to
that. He's right. He's right. This sisters upstate thinking.
Like when you take the the all hearing, okay. All right. You have to understand that Eliza gel, here's everything right? Even the smallest sound on like he here mouthpiece on cotton.
All right, everybody understands.
reality to it, that's fine.
He hears an ant crawling around, there you go, there you go. So
worship, that that is worship in itself, to understand that he hears everything, and he sees everything and he knows everything. Okay, so Okay, let's take a senior for example, you said so, knowing, in fact that Allah Subhana Allah hear that, so when we say, or when it said here, worship Allah through them, I think what we're trying to sell what's trying to be said here, is that you worship Allah, because what order did he come in comes in knowledge of that name, and what it means and then worshipping the law based on that knowledge that you have worshiping Allah, based on the knowledge that you have for that specific name. Right. So as semi it requires a certain type of
worship. you're praying to Him, because what? Because, you know, he hears? Right. Right, you're making thicket of him somehow, it's either because you know, he hears that.
I mean, you get the point. So that that's part of worshiping Allah, Allah based on your knowledge of that particular net worth worshipping the last kind of data based on your knowledge of that particular name, and then there are going to be things that you refrain from because you know, he hears everything, so you're not going to say things that are just pleasing to Allah.
So where do we where do we get here identifying the name, knowing what it means, when worshipping the last hematoma based on the knowledge of that name is very important. Very important point. In fact, the author says that the knowledge of last names
is the base for all
the profit on a cycle Sadam says Muslim in Latin to sign Jones's investment we attended
in lavaca men AXA, Allah as 99 names 100, less one, whoever saw that, all right, let's keep that like that. from whoever I saw her. de la agenda will enter Paradise plate.
The author goes on, he says what he saw means Can you can you read that part? So we're on page 44? Meaning by this
meaning by this, whoever memorizes the memorizes them? Uh huh. And that's the first thing I want you to like, if you got the book. Just put it number one there, because that's number one. Okay. understands the Yeah, believes three and worships a lot by means of gun shop in Japan. So there's like four things that just came under a song. Right? So to say whoever memorizes them answers genda is not correct. That's not correct. All right. We need the understand that because a lot of people think that, okay, that's my tickets agenda. Just go ahead and knock out these 99 names that they found in a book somewhere. And that's it. Everything else is good. I can do anything. So I already
have this go to Agenda free car. Right. So here it saw is what starts off, memorize. Understand, even then, right. And number four is to what?
According to the analysis, you'd have to
deal with approximately someone said no
If you do that, then why, guaranteed
paradise Pamela? And the thing that our next 10 week class, which is going to start September inshallah, that'll be on the names of
how do we determine
what is the name of a lost pet data doesn't have to have an elephant land in front of it. And the bride or not. Some of the profit is aligns with some names that people think our names may not be. And the shallow title will cover that along with a we'll take a just a thoughtful approach the
lesson in the name, the proof from the Brian and submit for that being a name of a loss. Fantastic, what belief in that name entails. And some of the ways that we can worship the loss
through those names. Because this is this, that this right here, knowledge of the last time was names, and believing in them properly, the way that the prophet Isaiah sauce was taught his campaigns and what they understood from the text, as the author talks about here, that in the nighttime is the base, it is the root of all faith. And it is the quickest way to develop faith and cause it to grow. And so we get in the lab, that is going to be our study starting in September.
The author goes on to say,
now go down to the last paragraph, say, yes, know that this knowledge must be free from the set from the sickness of fear, attempt fear, which has a picture of the people of innovation, those whose pad opposes the way opposes the way of the messenger, and he stood up to westernize. Right. So here, for those of you who study the law, either last year, you will not be excused if you don't know the top 10. So we're going to ask,
what is what is Tao clean? And what is temporary? And what does that mean?
Sorry, let's start with topic. What is Tao clean? What does that mean?
No, no, that doesn't mean like
So So negating that, that that name or you could actually say to to make it devoid of any meaning right to claim that the name has no real meaning and that has different ways that that's done is not our intent to go deep into that but we will deal with the the shell out when we when we cover the names of allies are just
no distort would be closer to 10 as opposed to touting so basically what they're doing is they're saying that's not really a last name, or it's a last name but it doesn't have any meaning. So now a lot of calls himself as semi endocrine but he doesn't hear
Oh, for sure. I just I got an email live I got an email yesterday.
Anyway is about
a brother who studied Islam and in any event, in the email, it says we're going to study we're going to study
why you can't say that a law has a hand and how these anthro
morphic you know interpretations have led to the dis distorting. So my first thing was, first of all, why are we getting people?
Why are we messing with people's Fiddler alarms with Ellen O'Brien? He says to to shape on what prevented you from bowing or prostrating? So what I created with what?
Okay, so now if we say you can't say a lot as an Can I read the grind? Nah,
not really. What just happened? alarms will go So Brian Yeah, the alarm for him allows me and is over their hands. I mean, the point is allies with Joe said about himself. Now to come in. This is the second sickness here in the US the translators turn, he says and also we have to stay away from what Tim feel. And that is to what I like to make my life like this to this creation. So nobody, we can't come in
A lot of hand is like this stuff. But to say that a lot has a hand a lot. So yeah, who am I to come now and say that he didn't know what he was talking about when he
was talking about himself, like some extra cliche, there's nothing like that. But he said that about himself.
And he has the right to say about himself when he wants to say we only know about a logo and he to fold this up. So to come say, Now, you can't say that, well, that's fine, then we might as well just stop recycling Brian.
So but in any event, that is taught to you, which is to claim that, that what
any understanding of that name, to make it void of any meaning.
And attempt is to make the light like to say that Allah Subhana, Dallas, like, name or attribute is similar to something else, and every one of us Pandavas names is indicative of an attribute. So a lot of SME, meaning he is the hearer and the attribute is that many years, that's a quality that is every name is like that, again, we're going to cover that
in about a month and a half. But
Okay, so let me
I don't want to just skip over this, but we don't have a lot of time.
We're already in the second hour, but
this is necessary.
Exactly. Okay. Back
to let me
let's let's do this. I want to read your heavy because I think that it's i think is major interest in trying to get an understanding of how this knowledge of a loss paradigm as names increase your email.
again, what is email?
Right, so we got we got both statement and MX.
Knowing that a law is for example.
And we'll see
does that help us in any way did that
was one second, the batteries
should be better.
Okay, so knowing that our last kind of data is embassies, how does that increase you in faith? How does that increase you in men?
Okay, so you know that he can see us I'll just repeat it.
Okay, so we show that with limit since so that in sends to what to your email increases, so staying away from sin is one of the ways to help develop and nurture faith. Right. So that's one thing What else? Yeah.
We appreciate it a lot. Hello? Mashallah. That's good. He's the author of site meaning he is the giver of site. So that makes us appreciated just thinking that he is a we'll see if that makes us appreciative of the fact that that we can see and and that now brings about
and as we go, sugar helps to or gratitude helps to increase your faith. Yes.
No one has different levels.
No, it's very important because knowledge is of different levels and understanding what it means to be LLC, it is going to vary from person to person, depending on the analogy, but let me just say this,
would you refrain from doing certain good deeds
knowing that the last half hour is going to see me so I want to do it because I know that allies would want to see me and reward me for you know, like these are knowing that allies are jealous watching you also helps you from being a more I know more is someone who shows up. Because now I'm saying wait a minute, why do I hear what he thinks what he what he's looking at me do? Why do I care about this person looking at me, I know that a lot. So a job
is looking at you so that's, that's more than enough. It's more than that I don't need anybody else to watch because allies are jealous is watching and looking at this this hadith
the Prophet is so after the sedan said, yup hapu Laguna
there's another heavy since we were dealing with the semiannual seen the Hadeeth of Ag so the famous heavy were actually alongside her and she praised the last panel to Allah for being SME. So handily It was a symbol of sweat glory into the one who's whose hearing has encompassed all sounds. She said that woman who came to complain to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam about her husband was in the same room. She was talking to the prophet like some accuracy that and I couldn't hear what they were talking about, but Eliza gel reveal what
can send me a low quality to God, okay. He's old. Yeah. So, Ally's window, revealed the fact that he hurt the one who came to you complaining about her husband, but even at the shuttle the a lot of time, and I was in a room with him and could see, she couldn't even hear. And that's why she said Laurie Mutola.
Who has heard those sounds? Who hears all sounds? Whose hearing encompasses everything that all of the people look look at it on our
on our offices, we come in?
How many people in our office every year, 3 million, all of them making
at the same time, in different languages.
And it doesn't confuse
me never get mixed up. A lot of fantastic years at all. I mean, answers it all. For those who are associates.
I mean, if three people stood in front of you talking at the same time, what happens?
Can you please just say one minute that leads
in the same way.
So these are things that honestly you know, when we talk about the names of us just want to rush by there's this heavy that I did want to, uh, to read the Hadith, where the Prophet sallahu wa Salaam said via kabuna luti event he will couldn't be lady that the illustrious
lady laughs at the despair of some of his servants, even though their situation is soon to change, even though their situation assumed to change. And so one of the companions said to the Prophet so low it will send them almost Cinderella
our Lord laughs now mind you, we got the same people who say, you can't say that the law has this. You can't say that. You can't say
this wasn't the reaction of the campaign.
Labs, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yes.
And then they said, We shall never be deprived of good from a lord.
This gives us hope, Allah labs, how do we learn? This gives us hope. Right? And so not to come and deny these names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But look at how we can benefit them from them in our email.
contemplating upon contemplating that big word for thinking about
the one who contemplates upon it will always benefit from its sciences. And the new shift. That means it's lost, you know, and that, again, is not exist in the error says minimal UI with my add up. Yeah, so I don't know where that that translation came from. But um, basically, what he's saying is that
one will always
the one contemplates over the pond was over the pride will always benefit from the knowledge and information that comes into
that but again, that wasn't mentioned that that was the that was the translators thing. Yes.
Just keep reading it as as with certs increases faith, the law says he's actually attaching an ad to Zed. That's when he met why
I am here to welcome when we mentioned his eyes several times, when these Verses are recited to them, increases them in faith. And they put their trust in their Lord. Not so. So again. What what increase them in faith according to the I, what has increased them in faith?
The verse versus what about the
simple repetitions? recitation? Simply hearing those verses, but but who are we talking about here?
We're talking about the believers. So it's not just mere recitation that they're hearing, they're also understanding what is being recited to them. And they are constantly be thinking about that. That is what does what increases them in faith. And so when you contemplate the knowledge that you find in the grind, that you gain in the grind,
what are we talking about? What knowledge Do you find the grind, the most important is the knowledge about a loss of habitat. So you're going to get all of those names and attributes of a loss fantastic, and his actions from the bribe, you're going to learn about the Hereafter, and the crime, you're going to learn about the stories of the prophets who came before our Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam and their interaction with the people. And all of this helps to increase a person in faith. It also does another thing I've just covered some of the points briefly that the author covers over more, it also helps you why you think it helps you see the consistency, and the bride
will ocana and then the lady left.
had the bride been from other than Allah subhana wa Tada, they would have found that it was much tax addiction, and, and discrepancies plate.
If you go to page 49, skip the page 49.
Kind of weird the way it's structured. But if you go to page 49, you will see
where a lot of data mentions. Right. Okay.
Right, start from the top of page 49. A lot has informed us a lot has informed us in many verses that the end is a sign for the believers and those possessing certainty.
Because through reciting it and pondering it, they attain such knowledge, faith and certainty as a law wills and then continuously increase in this knowledge, faith and certainty pondering occur and is one of the greatest routes that leads to the increase and strengthening of faith. Right, so
the author mentions the statement of Allah subhana wa, tada entitlements and that'll make them a lot of fun via denville ads. And what do you add to that? On Page 49, page 49. Again, like I said, it was the it structured a little bit
like this, the author brings his point, and then he revisits the point. So I wanted to put it together for you to keep the keep you from being distracted. So it is a book we ever revealed to you, full of blessing. So let people have intelligence, ponder at science and take him.
Here, again, he's talking about the recitation of core AI. And he's also talking about pondering over the earth.
He then says, Flm get depth the pope?
Have they not pondered these words? Meaning that what? So he's criticizing those people who don't have faith, who have disbelieved? And the messengers aligned with others, who have disbelieved in his message. Alice fans, Alice's Flm, your dead boneco. Have they not pondered over these words? Have they not pondered over this for I had the kind of over the grinder result would have been what if they had faith that they had email, but because there was no primer, then they did not add the necessary phase.
There's there's a lot that can be said about this. The point is, and I think that she can he deals with this frequently, and his reflections with you all, as he did with sort of cat and mouse sort of money to see how reflecting over the crime, in fact, does increase one's favorite one he met like 2.3
now is the ID of the Prophet x the Quran, the word ID, right? All of the headaches of the messenger and they select the words to land serves to strengthen one's faith as the same increases in his knowledge of the book and the sooner so to speak, and certainty so much that he that he could attain the level of IL. Yeah. Alright, so here, I'm gonna go through this quickly because the author Actually, it's likely that first line.
Like I said, there's a little it gets interesting with the translation, only that first line, which is all of the add ins of the message of saliva seldom serve to strengthen one's faith, the actual Arabic says, knowledge of the heartbeat because they detailed both theoretical and practical aspects of email. So what is happening there? Let's just go here. He says, the author says, I have been detailed both theoretical and practical aspects of email. Now, when you look back, what was our first few weeks what would we study
the definition of emf and a lot of that we gain from what had been the proper supply or some of those theoretical aspects of the knowledge base thing but then the Prophet is allowed to savannas detail for us every other part of this land and those parts of Islam are parts of the man as well. And so knowing these a Hadith of the prophets of light with some help to strengthen your faith, both the conviction part and the action for knowing these are habits of the Prophet so like so so that's once you're done. So the author goes on for a few pages here for a few pages to discuss the importance of knowledge in growing faith so I'm going to mention this the three points when should
it turn into you can turn to page 50. But what what was covered is number one, as a person's knowledge grows, so does is he man, and so does his yuppie now what's the difference between men and young
Okay, so what happens? How is your team related that
is an action of the heart hard no doubt about it. But what yeah
right so your pain is that higher that higher level of email so for example
and then we have as you know, we have an MVP nine MVP and happily attain so there's even for even for your team, there is no end Look, if you don't look at this as some type of just something theoretical, this is stuff you can feel stuff you can feel. So for example,
somebody told you
that Dr. matar
gave the hook back, and you see
three Fridays, I don't know if that's true with us.
Okay, I told you that
then you believe what I'm telling you.
It's the truth inshallah. So do you believe me?
I told him
I mean, I don't really have any reason to lie about that. You don't know me to lie about that. So we're going to say okay, so you went to somebody else? And you said yeah, Dr. matar game in the football scene three weeks ago and they say you sure that you said
yeah, you say that's your thing? I'm sure we got that's your thing. That's in anything you have knowledge because I informed you about it and you it's coming from a trustworthy sources Oh, that was accused.
I know your pain is a little different.
I know your pain would be for example, you
saw his name written down or you saw still shot of him
on the member.
And you say that that's another level right? I told you, but then you actually saw you saw increases so that that's an increased use. You're sure from the beginning, but now you're even more sure but half
You're keen, you were here.
You experienced it yourself? Nobody, nobody can come to you at this point
that can't shake.
Even your certainty might shake in times, you're sure. And somebody says no, no, no, because he was in Michigan, three weeks ago, he started saying, so you had their certainty, but even at your pain may
even can fluctuate at times, depending on what else is going on. That's interesting, I'm really happy. And I am in your pain, which means you actually seen it, and half them your team, which is when you experienced, right. So
what would the author here says is that a person can study so enough of these will be added to the profit of the site was there reached that level of it?
So I mean, you think about the evil eye, Hey, my name is Salatu was sin. We asked the last pensado berrettini cave, but so Ian Mota showed me how to bring hybrid life to the day
that he just believed in that
he was a messenger of love the greatest of the prophets.
Right? Right. Right. Well, he wouldn't
be happy if he dies. And he's brought back to life. He's experienced. Not just that he just said he saw it. Okay.
Exactly. And that's why our profit is selected with synapse, at least cell hub model can lie in
hearing about it is not like, seeing
hearing about it is not by seeing it. So somebody says, Yeah, you know, somebody also sent me a,
you know, nasty text.
And then he takes a screenshot of it, it says
it's, there's another level of certainty, right?
So, how is
Okay, so that's going to come and show, actually.
Alright, so. So the first thing I just want to cover very briefly with the with the author himself covered in those pages that we just get the first thing he talks about what as a person's knowledge grows. So this is what he man and is up
to is that he begins he also has a discussion about the importance of having well rounded knowledge.
And he says that it is this knowledge that repels any doubt that will come for any wavering that may come to a person. And it promotes absolute certainty. All right. And so what we just talked about right now, say doctor will target the football three weeks ago, this place somebody else. So you're certain about that, because you got it from a good source. But then somebody else comes and says,
is a machine
that does what that causes some wavering or some doubt. So you need more knowledge, the knowledge is going to cut off that down. All right.
So is it wrong on my part, that the picture they shown could have been an old picture?
Right, so I definitely
say I'll give you an accurate I told you, okay, so so you're pretty, you're pretty certain the documents are told you to
see if you now know the first one was up the first one he was short. But now you've gotten another level because it prevents any, any doubt prevents any wavering? You understand. So this is the type of knowledge that we are searching for, not because again, like like I said a minute ago, that what that knowledge is of different levels as well, how do we know different things have different levels. So you can't, you don't want to be satisfied with just that base level. And we want to go to a level that's going to come down.
The last thing that he that I wanted to point out that he mentioned that this is actually an important
principle and a slant, if you will. And that is he says that those who are firmly grounded in knowledge, they understand
the ayat that they have a degree in the foreign direct from the foreign,
that have a degree of ambiguity, meaning that there are certain ions in the prime that are open to
Some may read it one way and understand that one way and somebody read it another way understand another way
that the way of I'm assuming that and those who are strongly rooted in knowledge firmly grounded in knowledge, their way is to understand those texts in light of the Kemet, which is the majority of the PRI shows that it has an explicit interpretation, very clear cut. And so they understand those if in light of the eye that are that are explicit in me, that's just important. As we go along down the line, we'll cover that more when we get to names and attributes of the last one.
Let's keep it a little
knowledge about the Prophet at least.
Knowing his supply that is very high catch, knowing his stuff and very high period. Knowing has the blind morals and manners and perfect characteristics, who ever comes to really know him would never doubt his truthfulness and veracity. veracity is a high word for truthfulness, and veracity, and would willingly believe in all that he came with the book and assume that the religion of truth, or is it that they do not recognize their messenger, and therefore, do not acknowledge it because if they did know, if they did know him, then they would know that he was truly the Messenger of Allah, and they selected us to them. So simply knowing the character of the prophet Isaiah Salatu was
Sudan, and his truthfulness panela. When the Prophet sallahu wa sallam he sent the letter to, to Hara class, which was the the emperor of Rome, right? When he sent when he sent that letter to the emperor of Rome, it is so happened that there was a delegation from
Kufa that were actually there, in Rome, in the court of the Emperor, when the letter of the Prophet is so after Sam got to this, and amongst so so the Emperor says to,
to that delegation, which one of you is the closest in relationship to Mohammed, this man has sent me this, and so it was able to get that was again at that time, was not a Muslim. And so he said, Come, stand in front of me. And he made the rest of the delegation stand behind Abu sufian. And he told his interpreter to tell them that if he says something that's not right, to correct. And so episode Gan was stuck. He couldn't lie, he had to answer the questions of the Emperor truthfully. And so her clients asked them a series of questions. Now, how did I get on this point?
Knowing No way, right, knowing the truthfulness of the Prophet idea. So. So one of the things he asked he asked me a series of questions. For example, He asked them, was there a was there a king? Who was from his ancestors? And they replied, No.
Is he of noble descent, or ignoble, noble descent?
He asked them, to his followers increase, are they decreasing? Right asked him a number of things.
He asked him was he known to be a liar? Before he was before he sent this this letter before he started claiming that he was a prophet. So anyway, after asking them a series of questions, several questions, He then said, I asked you about his lineage. And you said that he was from the most noble tribe, had he been from it from an ignoble, you know, background, we, I would have assumed that he was just trying to get status. I asked you, did he have any kings? In his ancestry? And you reply, no. Had he? Had there been kings? In his answers? I would assume that he was trying to do what you just reclaimed that the kingship right when that kingdom
asked you about what was
nice about flowers, and you claim that they are increasing and this is the he said this is the sooner This is basically the the way of the messengers and those who follow them until the message is complete. That they increased. And I asked him about his truthfulness was he known to lie before claiming that he was a prophet? He said, No, he said, and this is why he said, You know, he went on sin. The reason why he believed that he was the Messenger of Allah, he said, because he didn't rely on other than Allah. Why would you live on luck?
The person who lies about a love to hell died. It is the worst of lives. So
You don't have a person claiming Prophethood
claiming to be a messenger of Allah, except that you can look at their way. And you can see that this person here as a truthful person, not an ally, but even somebody who far read a book by a Christian Britain in the 19th century 1870.
And even though he didn't believe
that the Prophet somebody was someone was a prophet, he said, there's no way that this man didn't believe that he was a prophet. In other words, he definitely believed himself that he was a prophet, he talked about his character, he said, look at our we did what the people have taught if when they abused them.
And he left them. I mean, he had a number of examples, you know, from the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he didn't believe because the Christians at that particular time, especially they have very limited access to Islamic sources, best story for a different
point. The point is, knowing the Prophet survival cells, knowing his character, knowing his seal, and knowing these things about the Prophet is allowed to say that increase a person's faith,
they increase a person's conviction. This man was definitely a messenger of a lot.
And that Eliza gel sent him with the truth. So therefore those things that he has come true. And we and we accept. You know, you look at
the interesting story, you hear the whole team in the beginning of the football in Al Hamdulillah.
Right, most of you don't know where that came from. No. I mean, it's several,
the same Muslim, the Hadith of the man, he, he was, he heard about this man, this, this man with clay said he was a madman, he said it was mentioned knowing he was affected by jinn. And he was like, Look, instead of just talking, he's a nice guy.
Came companion later, but at this point, he wasn't Muslim yet. And he said, you know, rather than just talking about it, I'm gonna go, and I'm gonna help cure him. He was a rocky
they use them. I mean, obviously, he wasn't using the prime, but they use certain formula, if you will, to help heal people. Say, so I'm going to go to this man called Mohammed. And I'm going to
say somebody has mentioned on and on, but I'm
going to go, and I'm going to sit with him, and I'm going to help cure him. And so he, he went to the Prophet it is select to select, and
to use the words of one of our free empty this cup, right? He went, he said, he said, Listen,
you know, I heard about you, when I heal people, basically, you know, gave him an offer. We do it for free and secure. Sort of approximately someone's already done.
The promises, I saw him sit in the
When I was a wee lad, he may surely
say yes, yeah, imagine that. Now the man is listening. He understands all of this, all
We praise them, and we seek His forgiveness because we recognize that we fall short in that crazy. I mean, he's processing all of this.
Seek refuge in this one that we're praising from the evil of our selves. Evil to what we sow, here now is listening to this man who's claiming as a prophet, he's saying is from Allah, he's recognizing that he has some shortcomings to handle up to the end.
And he said,
bring that back.
One more time.
He said, Give me a hand.
I'm giving you I'm giving you the allegiance of this man. He's telling me what the doll must. I believe that you know, he went to heal him and he came away having his soul heal.
These are just one encounter with the province when I saw him, I mean, you look at you look at the the Salah was one of the he was a Jewish scholar.
when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam first came to Medina.
indefiniteness, meaning that he said the people raced to the prophecy so he says, so I went with him. He lived in Medina, he wasn't a Muslim. But he went
and raised to see this man who everybody was talking about, he said, so I looked
There is space.
to Dan, he said I knew it wasn't the face of a liar was not the face a liar?
So he goes on to say,
well, oh would mess of it to who you are. And the first thing that I heard him say was a u ns. f should sell em to old people, spread the celebs. What's up?
FB the people, once you go ahead and keep the ties or keep those ties of kinship was solely related. When that's to me and pray at night by the people who switch testicle agenda.
You will enter agenda peaceful. And some of the scholars heavy, say be selective means your entry agenda first meaning no no stopping off in hell
So you look at that, and then he accepted this. Except for the same just by seeing the problems I saw. He said that is not the face of a liar. He was a star who stops peddling. So knowledge of the Prophet is a lie to Sudan is something that both does what it it nurtures faith, it serves as a root of faith, but it also develops and increases one's faith.
this is why adjust the person who truly desires to follow the truth. But when when when the author says just we would probably translate that as being objective,
right? that this person is objective, he's going with no preconceived notions, no biases, he just wants to go and look at the life of this man having a son in law.
who truly desires to follow the truth, merely by hearing his words will Quicken towards accepting faith in him
and then not have any doubt Indeed, many of them just by seeing his face, but know that he was not a liar. And this is reference to the Hamidullah of the love and Sam on the love line. It was asked of them, why do you believe in the 100? They replied, he never ordered anything to which the intellect would say if only he had prohibited now let's stop right there. It doesn't mean that everything that the prophets I saw them order or command that people understood it fully, or that you're gonna understand it fully. What this person is saying here is that there's nothing there's no command in Islam, that his mind sent to him, or his intellect said to him,
I wish he would prohibit that not command. He, he commanded us to fast the month of Ramadan, I wish he would prefer that no, nothing that the commandment, except that he did that, that is mice, you know, found it acceptable, right. And he never, and he never prohibited anything to which the intellect said, If only he had
prohibited intoxicants, I should have ordered us to drink, you know. So this intelligent person depended upon the excellence of His laws. And this agreeing to the sound intellect, in his acceptance of the right. In other words, the excellence of the laws of Islam.
And the fact that they agree with sound intellect is something that led him to, to have a conversation today
happened to be in a bank. And so he says to me, so.
So how do you feel about interest and feel about interest? Right?
There's just simply enough, he's not Muslim, but he has Muslim children.
the issue of interest is it is an interesting topic. No pun intended, right?
I really didn't intend funding.
So I said to him, I said,
Well, what are we talking about here? I said, are we? So what from what angle? He said, How do we this is? How do we feel about interest? We like I'm trying to figure out what, what common framework we had. So I said, well, you want to go back to rabbinical law because at the end of the day, interest is not something that just got prohibited by the prophet SAW it. So this was the rules of allies.
From that time, I mean, and again, this is something preserved in the Jewish law.
but you know what? Well, what are we talking about here? So I said, Look, at the end of the day, if you look at the system of interest, let's not look at what a person may gain that benefit that I might get by being able to go take a 30 year mortgage, for example, right, and be able to purchase a home that I wouldn't be able to purchase any other way. So I have to go get this loan with interest. Let's put that to the side, because that's a personal thing. Let's look at this system. What does the system of interest do? It keeps the rich rich and the poor poor. That is what the system of interest does. You benefit simply because what, because you already have money. So you get the
benefit. And people who don't have money, they are the have nots, they have to come to you
to get a loan, and then you charge them for not having money.
And so they have to
do what they got to pay you even more, which means that they stay broke.
Right? So he said, What about predatory lending and this type of stuff like that we think kind of service. predatory lending is like they look for you may find out who's in a bad spot. Let me go give him something with 25% interest or something like that. I said, you don't have to. I said, because when you look at the system as a whole, if you permit a little you have to permit a lot when it comes to that. I mean, that's the problem here, right. So when you look at even the gradual nature of,
of intoxicants being prohibited in Islam. Right? It didn't start out that cover was forbidden. And it reached a gradual point. So it was only forbidden what to come to salaat drunk. So that means the FAA said, you can drink long as you were okay by *ing time. So there was a but then what happens is that this is not something that's good for you the preservation of one's mind, that affects the mental health. And once you start making it, okay, if you leave it at that it was okay, because now we got it in the house. But we only do it after, after he shed what he had a little too much. And so if he is still not sober, or what. So what happens is a slam closes that door.
Even if a little might be okay, for some people, no, forget, that's done.
You understand? And so again, the same scenario, when you look at the issue of interest, which has a whole different, you know, thing that has to be studied. But the the point about is that it's not, it's nothing crazy, it's nothing crazy about the interest being permitted. The problem is that we live in a society that's built on answers. And so we can't imagine any other way.
And then when you see another way, you say, Wow, so panela just like what a lot of other things in life, when you get turned on to a different way doesn't have to be that way. You know that right? It's like, wow, I never knew that life could be so great when I show up. So the point is, that there is nothing in Islam. That just contradicts the, the sound intellect. Again, we may not be able to fully grasp everything, something may catch you off guard or something like that. But once you take a little time to study, you'll see that then it's, in fact, from the last panel.
It was upon a similar premise that is a similar foundation or saying or idea or fact that the leader of Rome had actually as air applies
depended when he heard the description of the messenger.
And what he wanted and prohibited to come to the conclusion that he
was the greatest of messengers and believed in him complete that is that hair clients believed in the prophets alive, right then and there. He was like, he is the Messenger of Allah. And if I get a chance to see him, he is going to do what he is going to own this place right here. And I'm gonna wash his feet.
He's gonna be a servant of the messengers, right? However, however, leadership and power prevented him from following him closely, watch closely. So leadership and power, leadership and power prevented him from following the messiness of life is something completely that is prevented him from entering into his slash. leadership in power can lead to a lot of people from following the message in a lot of other things, even though they may be Muslim.
That leadership for power is official.
So fitness, right?
such factors prevent me from accepting, right? leadership, power, that desire for leadership, not that a person is a leader, not that the person has power, but that they desire it is something that is coming to the heart. And so therefore they fear that
shifting any of their reverence to someone else would therefore take away from their own you know, leadership and their own power
AR So, what's the first form that we've covered for increase of faith? First for
Okay, so knowledge of the names have a lot to handle with number two.
Number two, contemplating the verses of the prime number three.
that number two, number one was what? Knowing the names of a loss of habitat number two was contemplating the Quran verses of the Quran number three was knowledge in the body of the Prophet size element number four, was knowing the Prophet. So why is that a meaning his seal his characteristics is chemin in chemin, means
there's a book by a certain minion called Shama, Shama in the Mohammed de chemin, like his physical attributes, so like.
Alright, so knowing these things, knowing about our profit is a lot to select. And that's why I'm going to encourage the the next year, we've dedicated to Sierra
dedicate some of that it leads to the seal of the Prophet it is selected.
Because it does help to increase faith. So what we're looking for, looking to draw closer to
that knowledge that brings us closer to it. So number four was a knowledge of the Prophet I've been selected to slam the seal on his attributes his character,
Upon the creation of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between the upon the amazing variety of creation, and the creation of man itself, is a potent invigorator of faith. This is because the greatness of this creation, points to the greatness of the Creator and his omnipotence. That means is our power and potency, which cannot be measured, is its conformity and harmony points, the vastness of the laws, knowledge, and it's all encompassing wisdom. It's innumerable. It can't count. Its innumerable blessings and plentiful boundaries. Point to the expanse of the last verse is generosity, and kindness, smile, stop there. Look at that. He says here, that this is because the
greatness of this creation, when you when you begin to ponder over the greatness of creation, how great must the creator yesterday, so it needs you to understanding that he is the all powerful, omnipotent, and that he is
looking at just the greatness of a lost hands, and it goes on to say, its conformity and its harmony, meaning being the system in which it runs. The fact that the Earth was just tilted a little bit differently, they wouldn't be life on Earth, if the sun was just a little closer a little further, that they wouldn't be life on Earth. So that the conformity and its harmony points to a loss of habitat is knowledge and wisdom is knowledge and wisdom. So, you see how that contemplation takes you back to what knowledge
And Medina has grown a lot of pm. Eu Then why are you moving in with what
you have to sell it on?
The profit side so I'm used to recycling as a nice, you know, a lot of data says
in the 50 level at one and a half, the changing of mountain depth.
In the view hub is centralized in the creation of the
Heavens and Earth, and the changing of the night in the alternation of the night and day, by signs for the people who have wisdom left since those who are yet kurunegala. They remember Allah pm standard, sitting down why that you know me and why they own their size. And they do what they ponder, they think where to
collect this and our allies were jealous praising them for what, for thinking about the creation of the heavens and earth. You know, a lot of us with city dwellers, we don't do that.
As real, is very different for people live away. And they experienced that.
Don't stars and they, I mean, they experienced the creation of a loss of
Hope is similar way it will think about the creation of the heavens and earth. And then what? And then they say,
Oh, no, you didn't create all of this in vain. And you you're thinking about the creation of Amazon. So last week, Joe is, is in encouraging us to think about the creation of the heavens and earth, and all of that, that exists in this universe,
magic, all of these factors,
all of these factors, they want to exhort, it's created here, thanks to her resort to this remembrance, and make the big decision, the way of life sincerely, exclusively that is for him alone. This is the essence very spirit of a lot, a lot. I mean, you know, some kind of a lot many times and you can you'll as you read the Quran and Fido and I'm sure some of you experienced this, in your reflection of sort of
we're allies of a gentleman gives the example of the earth which is barren. Right and all of us have driven at some point you drive by land, there's nothing there, it's just and then you come back some months later is vegetation growing and flowers with it a lot. He brought life back instead of Earth die. Those are things that you reflect over, this is reflecting over the creation, it helps you to then remember the hereafter and the Wiseman job is going to bring life back to back to the dead and it doesn't stop Don't think that it's over with death but that's just the beginning
of something more permanent
the many failures along the way that fares is spelled is the British
pirate ship not what blink of an eye is not we don't we don't have we didn't have our Philadelphia Tea Party in the Boston Tea Party we haven't gotten rid of the British yet so
not for blink of an eye
object of creation free of the space and time to make over them needs one that fit

You have faith enough the good things we have provided for you and get things to love. If you weren't sure Mmm, all right, work with your partner you got to minute What are we talking about right here pondering over your favorites
Okay, so the opposite is not for blink of an eye
is any object of creation anything other than a loss of habitat tada free of his fate Yeah, that is they are in need of a lot of adults favors at all times.
pondering over these favors, leads one to have faith leads one to have email
This is why law instructed the messenger and believers to show their gratitude to him. Yeah you Allah Nina mo kulu man fight he baggy mouth.
Oh, you believe Oh, you have even even the good things that we have provided for you. And show thanks so much. Show that gratitude to Allah, if you in fact worship Him. Hello. The question
that's from the off. Question is from the speaker. How the showing gratitude, increase your faith because what are we talking about? Right?
We've talked about ways to do it increase, increase, increase, increase the man, that's that's part of it. That's a key right? I was actually you just unlock part of the question discuss the relationship between the man
the question is clear, right? I'm not saying the answer is clear, but that's why you have a partner and you're going to sit with that partner for the next two minutes to shell out
to discuss the answer to those questions you have two minutes starting now.
that none of us could have done like that land you see now we come back
all the machine
just reflect on it and say we couldn't do that this guy was
shut down. Right
take a look out exactly yeah.
in two minutes is up.
Time is up.
Whoever is taking the mic. Okay, so who's the answer?
Either one of the questions or both of them together how this showing gratitude increase your faith how the showing gratitude increase your resume This will let somebody
That might increase your faith
he's already proclaimed that you are grateful

in that favor? Any man
All right, good. Okay. Now that's good Mashallah. And I'm glad that you thought to bring evidence for what you're saying. Okay, good. Who else?

Okay, part two is fine. Okay.
last panel dialysis in Sevilla imageshack young America
cool. Is this really but for those who are ungrateful to a law isn't associated with cook right. So therefore the opposite the shachar right is related to Amen. That's nice. Nice.
Wow, I'm done, man.
Who else somebody else? That is a good thing.
I know somebody else is
My partner has something good. He wants to keep a secret. No.
just experienced that I
didn't give it to me. I was told this cheek that I will stand by the stove and just prepare an egg and I will stop and reflect on it at
this date I didn't
know and then I was in my backyard, the CSV file. And I was always scared because he knows every
Just come on come. How dare I
pray to about that
all the time.
we'll use some of the words of the, the author himself. If you look right below, on page 54. I just erased it.
So that you couldn't cheat.
But is there in a book, he says, Faith insights, one to give thanks to Allah.
And given thanks to Allah revitalizes, and increases faith, both men matters go hand in hand, faith and science want to give things to you. In other words, when you recognize when you recognize the favors of a loss of habitat,
that recognition is an act of men. Recognizing that thing.
Recognizing the favorite, then does what insights you to
show gratitude to a loss of data. Sugar is an action
it's an action of the heart. That's where it starts in the more it increases, your faith increases because it's part of faith.
Faith is not just something that is not just belief.
And Eman, colon, Baba right Eman is what statement, belief statement actions. If the belief increases, then the word faith increases know your faith increases our email, your email increases. If your actions increase, then your faith your Eman is increasing. So when your sugar increases, your demand also increase increase by definition, simply by by definition, but again, recognizing the favors of a loss fantana
encourages sugar encourages that gratitude, so allows parents and that thanks to a loss of power data increases your faith. So the two matters go go hand in hand. That's that's what the author was saying.
The point is, that we
that we should ponder likely ponder over the creation should ponder over the many famous of the last.
and some of the greatest famous that Allah Subhana Allah as has given us the intangible ones, we shouldn't think automatically that the lies blessed me with something material, love bless this was.
So many people, they can't they can't cope with anything. Because they have no email.
This man will live the life for those of you who have lived any other way, then you know, probably more than other people.
The real, never the real blessing of this leap
of faith. And
it's not because of something you did.
Frequently making the thicker of a law making the thicker of the law and self protection application, which is the essence the inner beam of worship, in reference of love and planting the tree of faith in the heart of the service. So what's happening now he's saying that and again this is why we go back to that tree all the time so that you can keep keep thinking about your heart, as the soil when a man is planted right. So remembrance of Allah Subhana data helps to keep those seeds deep
in the heart, right so it can grow right? The Board The sooner it remembers of a lot of plants, the remembrance of Allah and plants the tree of faith in the heart of the serpent in implants it and then it does what nourishes and cause and causes it to grow. Right The more the surgeon makes the vicar of the law, the stronger his
whoever loves the law will frequently make mention of him. The love of the law is from faith. Indeed, it is his essence, his inner being, in fact, its core fact.
ever love something makes a lot of mention of that. Whatever it is that you love, you mentioned it.
whoever loves the last panel, and you grow and you love have a lot from the first thing, which is what knowing the last with his name, and his actions, his actions, penalties, whoever loves the law, is going to make frequent mention of allies until he is going to remember him much. He is going to frequently make thicket of a lot of attack. The Prophet is alive assigned to Sam says, should I not inform you of the best of your dataset which is most pleasing to
those that will raise you most in stats, it is better for you than going out in bed and having your next cut in you doing the same to others that is, is better than any type of battle that can be done. He said.
They said yes, almost no Allah, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that
the remembrance of Allah, the Exalted. And so the vicar of Allah Subhana, Allah is something that is very important for us, in terms in increasing our faith.
The question here,
because I think it's important when we, when we talk about VIP kid to look at different levels. So the question says, the sticker on the top,
where you're not really thinking about what you're saying, there is no focus to it, you're saying to had a lot humbled.
But it's just something you're saying. You're not really thinking you're thinking about something totally there.
Does this have any reward? Does this have any reward? What do you think?
To the reward that you would have if you actually thought about? So the man and knowing him all the time, he says ethical your total bill cosby will kuno
he says victory akula Welcome to Hulu, when we said one of the men who Makana bill called me when he said he Jimmy I
can be with the heart.
What is that you're thinking about loves?
that thought process alone without even saying anything of its own, that thought processes a bet. And increases your love for loss increases your knowledge.
And the good can also be with the top. So a person who's just saying something.
But he's not really actually thinking about what he's saying.
And then he says, and it is done with the heart in the tongue at the same time.
So this is the best, this is the best form of thinking imminent client has a similar statement. I'm not gonna mention in totality. The point is to know that they do mention that the scholars of Islam mentioned that they can on the tongue alone,
But there's not a lot of reward to it. But I'm saying that what's important is to get in the habit. Because the tongue does remind the heart, just like the heart influences the tongue. And so sometimes you might just be saying something on your tongue. And then you start to think about this because it is a habit that you have. And so then you begin to think about what you're saying when you're telling you're saying something good. And approximately Some said failure will highlight only
one who believes in a lot of last thing I'm saying that which is good or keep silent. The scholars of Hadith say that this shows that saying something that is good is better than being silent, is better than being silent, which is why I started off by saying say that which is good. So just to add when you're Tom, the last panelist panelists panel is better than not saying anything. When I say even if you're not really thinking about
And then hopefully it will remind your heart.
One second was the man, many of us don't know. Right? Question?
Do we fall into the category of just talking? We don't know we're saying, or can we say sometimes in English? Right? So if you don't know what you're saying, so most of the most of the videos that people make, I'm saying like saying Latin Latin last panel, I'm gonna be left alone. Most people know it. They know it. And again, like we said, knowledge has various levels. What subpoena law means to somebody who studied Islam? Or who's I have a book that's two volumes on Alhamdulillah. two miles on Alhamdulillah.
It was it was a doctoral thesis from the University of Chicago. That was the was the
advice that the point is that the to the person who wrote that
111 is a lot more than that means to some other people, right? So again, what we're talking about is knowing is of, of different levels, right?
I'm going to stop I'm gonna stop. But let me just one second.
So to your point, to your point, that if a person knows it, meaning they have a general knowledge of that, meaning that no they don't fall into saying it without knowing its meaning. However, a lot of people do memorize certain things, we have no clue what they're talking about. That person is better for them to say whatever it is in English, is the problem solving some sitting the light laugh But why?
A loss for diamonds is not accepted to add from a heart that is heedless and unattentive. The heart is unattentive.
If you don't know what you're talking about, there is no way that you can be attentive.
questions in the back?
How can one take
caution and not
overdoing vigor? such as one
narrow Sophie's go overboard in thinking, the problem is, is that most Sufi groups are 30 plus ways. They innovate.
So they do.
It's not that they do necessarily they do more, sometimes they do more than the issue is how they're going to think. Right. And so they may have a certain formula that they use that was not prescribed by the prophet it is somebody who's in it.
Or they may, you know, do it at times when it shouldn't be done. Like group, they can act as a lot, for example, such that it disturbs everybody.
hopefully that answers the question, but there's no, really
I don't know, anybody who mentioned the law or remembers a lot too much. I don't even know if that's possible. Last time it was left alone
in the back, and then you should
notice that they're saving you because I have a question for you all.
And it looks like
how does the aspect of hobbies
remember the law? And how when the people were trapped in a cave, and then they remembered a law and then they talked about
the things that they did have good deeds? How did that tie into? Remember the law? And yeah, the beginning and the opposite, like obedience and disobedience, right? And how that increases the man boy. Right? So so they were they were trapped in a cave. Not to mention the whole story, but but they were trapped in it in a cave. And they remembered a loss of data and most people do when they go in this stuff.
Right? So that's not a prophecy. Someone told him and I bet when he was dead when he was a young boy, right, if not best at this stage is 1213 years old me. He says to him tog Rafi, the lighting from a cop yard
Physicians get to know a lot when things are going good. No, you at times are difficult. Don't wait until things get difficult to remember last time, make that relationship prior to that, because then it'd be easy. You already established something, everybody knows, even the mosquito.
when when when when the waves start coming up, but it looks like the boats for the sake
of Oh my god.
Right, they're calling upon the laws
alone. That's it.
But now when they get back the safe laugh now.
At this point they, they can finish it. So, you know, the reality is not so. So to go back to that. What happened now is they use the terminology to us. So we started here, and then they sought a means to get closer to a loss of data by mentioning and remembering some of the good deeds that they did sincerely for a loss of habitat. And so they said, they asked the loss fans out of Allah, if this app that I've done was sincerely for you to please make us away, make us a way out, right. And so
a lot of Donald bless them, you know, after the third one being who I mentioned in his deed that he did to get out of that situation, and it does show that that remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala in drawling closest to him is a way out of his way out of difficulty.
nothing, that's what that's what they said. That's what that's why part of who I was, or not, if I did this sincerely,
right, that does indicate the importance of, of sincerity and so here, the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala with the heart needs to do at least the vicar that needs to, you know, you saying things off your tongue that are pleasing so lots of fantastic
shape? I have a question. So, it Shaheed from the names of the law, can we call you a douche in either zoom call? You seem a bit shifty ambition if I was standing next
the reason why now I'm just gonna tell you right now, as *gy does not come into our eyes in that form with the elephant, the lamb. So you have some scholars who do not see
as Shaheen to be from the names of Allah Subhana, who was added because of the lack of their being shaken down with
the definite article.
Have you seen
it? Yeah, well, no. Shame. But we'll get to that. Because the scholars have different methodologies for identifying them some that there's no doubt about, and there's quite a few that they will
best to. Correct Now, unfortunately.
Even though you don't understand what's brewing, right, right.
Okay, so, all right. So I'll
restate that. I'll restate that. And then I know that needs to be called on.
All right, so I'll finish this off. Right. So the Shaykh mentioned that the prize, the best of the best form of victory is actually recitation of the prize. And we're encouraged to recite the Quran, even if we don't understand what it means. And that's because the time is special. That's because the Brian is the speech of Allah subhana wa Tada, and our private idea. So I have to say mentioned a specific reward for the presentation of the bride. However, however, that does not mean. And again, as Vicki
is mentioning with the tongue, that does not mean that we should ever be satisfied with not understanding the price. If, if in the life of the man, the weakest of faith, is to read a side by side to read, to read the Arabic and then sit read an English translation to help you get a better understanding of what it is that you mean. Alright, so I wasn't able to ask you all my questions. And so now we just turn it into homework at the beginning, and there's gonna be more to come. So at the beginning of class, I actually list five things
Five what we're worried about?
Like it increases your email, right? We just covered seven right now, are any of the seven that we have? Do they match your five? If not, what are you going to do practically from the seven that we covered on a daily basis on a weekly basis? Or how frequently Are you going to implement what we've covered today to help increase your faith? I want you to come up with a program for yourself based off of what we've covered. A lot of time we're gonna discuss that next week.
level level items, along with Channel Nine
