inshallah Today we will begin the study of the subject of Arpita.
What does it mean? belief? It's the creed that a person has the faith that a person has. And why do you think I made you listen to the last two verses of Surah Baqarah before we began,
what do these verses talk about? The Pillars of a man, they talk about a man am enough of a soul. The messenger has believed right? And then later on, we'll move on and the believers have also believed in what common M and A belay woman equity right and so on and so forth. So, in the verses what is mentioned in and is mentioned. So as we begin the subject, we begin with the same graph that our last panel data teaches us, that our Lord Do not place on us a burden that we are not able to carry. And as we make mistakes or vannak, your pardon your forgiveness, have mercy on us and pardon us. May Allah soprano data help us to gain beneficial and relevant knowledge. That is not just a
means of increasing our information, but really bringing about a change and improvement in our Eman so that we can attain the objective of attaining closeness to Allah soprano.
Before we begin the subject, let me just tell you briefly about the resources that I'll be using to teach the subject. Firstly, the book that is by alhuda, it's an older Islamic guide, there is no formal English translation of that. So the handouts that you will be receiving will be based on that book. Secondly, the lectures by Robert Hashmi on the same book on Akita as well as lectures on the subject of repeatable, urban Earth they mean as well as the field children, these references are all available online and inshallah also some resources will be used just so that you know where this information is coming from because a matter of Akita is very serious. Okay, that is basically your
name, right? And you should know where your dean is coming from, you should know about the resources that are being used in order to teach you this name. Alright, so as you begin, the first topic that inshallah we will cover today is aqeedah. And its meaning before we begin anything, we should know what it means, when I asked you the question, what is aqeedah mean? I saw a few smiles that showed uncertainty. So let's be very clear about what arcada means. So the word acleda is from the letters are in calf doll from aka Yakubu
means kamshet it is to fasten together and tie firmly. So for example, you have two strings and you tie them together. This is what are your cameras shed, it also means a lot to shake to fasten something so basically similar meaning but it is basically to tie something together very firmly.
When a person says that I have such and such belief, meaning I firmly believe in this in my heart as though I have this knot, you know I've tied it firmly in my heart. And the word act conveys multiple meanings often are firstly to make a knot to tie a cord. So for example, Bill Hubbell what is having a rope. So, our habit is to take one part, give one end of a string of a rope and take another rope and its end and what to do with those two ends, tie them together. So, this is up Dale Hubbell from the same resort as well and there is a necklace a string of beads. Why? Because in a string, what do you do, you put multiple beads and then you join the two ends together how you tie them into a knot
or you clasp them together, so that they are firmly joined together they will not loosen up they will not open up in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala mentions that in Mecca, what is
the knot of marriage likewise is with a Fennec one in children affair 30 film
those who blow into the knots or what not. And the opposite of act is handler which is to open to untie to loosen something. So for example, up there is to tie a knot and help us to open up that knot. Then the aqeedah or rather the way to act also gives the meaning of to settle, to determine upon something to have a firm resolution about something to be certain about something. So for instance, in the Quran, Allah, Allah mentions
the different kinds of books that people swear and Allah says that law you know, the love Wi Fi, a monocle, he will not hold you responsible for those oath which I love, meaning that you're meaningless. You don't really intend to sway them. It's just out of habit that you say Allah, hello, Allahu, Allahu so on and so forth. However, whenever Can you
dinner up to a man, notice the word of a man, that he will impose blame upon you for breaking what you intended of
optimal a man, meaning those odds which you died. In other words that you were fool about that you intended, you were determined upon you actually meant it. So there's two kinds of portray those which are unintentional, and those which are intentional, or
which alter the intentional meaning when a person swore that he meant to adhere to it, he meant to fulfill it. Thirdly, the word act also gives the meaning of to enter into an obligation to make a contract, a treaty and Alliance. So for instance, in the Quran, Allah told us that all believers will then fulfill your contracts,
say, simulate act. Why? Because you have made an agreement with someone, right? You have firmly resolved to adhere to that agreement, you actually meant it, right? It's like you've tied a knot. So you have to fulfill these promises and facts. So we see that the word act, it revolves around the idea of affirmation of certainty of adherence, this is the basic meaning that the word act conveys. So the word aqeedah from the same root, what does it mean that the word Arpita is under structure of fair ILA? It is on the structure of fair ILA. Have you studied English the COC in Arabic grammar? So, you are somewhat familiar with this and, and hamdulillah. Today, you're beginning social media.
So, you should be familiar with the concept of word structures in the Arabic language. So I should feel free to use such words in front of you. So anyway, the word upheavals in the structure of English for, for eating for even gives two meanings. Sometimes it gives the meaning of fat, and other times it gives the meaning of my own. So for example, Rahim, Rahim on the structure of ferry, what meaning does it convey off ferry meaning one who shows one who has a hammer, it gives meaning of door, then the word fairy also conveys the meaning of math object? So for example, the word or regime and the structure of for him what meaning does it convey
Model june of the one who has been expelled. So for ILA,
it gives the meaning of mufe.
For either it gives him anywhere from a fool over here. So either means she own Martha. It's an object, meaning that which is tied up. Meaning that which a person firmly believes in that which a person adheres to. So you understand the word, either we're not talking about the technical definition yet, or not talking about what it means in the religion of Islam, just as a word aqeedah What does it mean? Shea omaka, meaning that which is dyed, which is adhered to, which is firmly believed in, this is what the word aqeedah means. So for instance, if a person firmly believes that he should not eat animals, and he doesn't just believe in his heart, but he never eats any chicken,
any beef, nothing at all, and he tells other people to do the same thing as well. It doesn't matter where he is, in this earth wherever he goes, he does not eat any meat. So this belief that he has, what is it? It says, right? Why? Because it's something that he is firm about. He is convinced about, and he adheres to firmly. So Akiva is what she and Martha had. Now as a technical term. What is the word acleda mean? Meaning what is the definition of the word Okay, the shape is what linguistic meaning? What is the definition? Not in Islam? Just in the language, what is the definition of the word Akita? Akira is
a jazz and I'd like you to memorize these words. Hook what they mean Jazzy, this is what Athena means. Let's break this down.
What does it mean? It doesn't always mean judgment or decision, right. Hoku also means when something is made firm, it also means as a mustard the word hookah means to solidify something to make something firm. For instance, in the Quran, we learned that one of the attributes of the Quran is hacky. And salty as in what do we learn welcome, Anil. Hakeem, over there the word hacking also conveys the meaning of that which is far more come.
Okay, that which has been made firm how that no falsehood can enter it. No one can prove it wrong. No one can find any fault in it. It is a firm solid book layup deal battling in mania de mean, healthy. So the word Hakan. What does it mean to make firm to solidify something? So what is it that has solidified something made something from an
event meaning the mind meaning when the mind solidifies and make something firm? How, in what way? jersey? What does jersey mean? firm? Absolute definite. So in one sentence, what would you say? That are p that is the firm creed. The firm creed, that one's mind is strongly attached to.
It is firmly and strongly attached to it is determined and fixed upon. This is what aqeedah means. This is what the definition of al Qaeda is what the firm creed, that one's mind is strongly attached to determined and fixed upon. Now, when you read this definition, there's a couple of things that we learn about, first of all, that earthly that is not something tangible, it's not something physical, right? It's not an action. It's not a practical matter of the religion, of Islam, or of any religion, but rather, is a matter of knowledge. It is what it is a matter of knowledge. And where is knowledge in the mind, in the heart, right. And when we use the word, then don't just think about
the brain. Because we know that the word is also used for the same purpose. So by using the word mind, I'm referring to intellect. So the first thing that we underline
Stand about our credo is that it is a matter of knowledge. So therefore its place is where in the heart. It's places where in the mind it's a matter of knowledge. And it is what a person believes in his heart about something. So for example, a hypocrite and when
he says, I believe, does he have the correct Akita? No. Why? Because it's just on the tongue. It's just a proclamation off the tongue. It's not actually in the heart. So aqeedah it's places where in the heart secondly, another very important thing that we learn about Africa from this definition is that it is settled and firm in the heart, which means that the person does not have any doubt about his Akita. Akiva is dead which is free of doubt. If a person has even a little bit of doubt and that is not
why do you think in the Quran, it is. So emphasized Eman is so emphasized right at the beginning of the Quran, what do we learn about the Kitab of Allah? Delhi, Calcutta.
Because you have to have such a cleaner which is free of Akiva is that which does not have any doubt in it. If a person has died, that is not a pita. So for example, from an African, they said we believe, however, what was in their hearts, doubt, fear Caribbean mehraban What is that model of doubt? So they lack sound aqeedah they did not have Akita. As a result, they did not have Eman as a result, they did not have the proper actions either. So these are two things, which we have to remember about our leader, that first of all, it's a matter of the heart. It's a matter of knowledge. It's not something tangible. And secondly, there's absolutely no doubt about it. So
another definition is that it is the beliefs that a person binds himself with. So connecting it with the linguistic meaning of the word, Akita. Akiva is what the beliefs that a person binds himself with the faith that he is convinced off, and he adheres to it firmly. He adheres to it firmly. So you can think of urquiza as Foundation, the foundation of the deen inshallah we'll discuss about this later on as well. But you can understand acleda as the foundation of the deen it is what the dean stands upon. So for example, in our religion, we have certain matters, which have to do with him, or a man. That is what aqeedah. And then there's other measures which have to do with Amen.
So where do they stand on? What's their foundation? What's the root? What is it? It is the aqeedah think about the example of the person that I gave you, who firmly believes that he should not have any meat. So that is aqeedah. So even though he's really hungry, and he may be in a restaurant, and the person sitting in front of him is having a huge steak will he heard? No, you won't have it. Even if somebody tells him I'll pay you
know, why? Because his Earth either he is adhering to it firmly, he will not give it up. So we see that as a foundation, and this is why it is so essential. Now, what is our Qaeda in Islam? What is our aqeedah in Islam before we actually do that, one more point that I'd like to clarify over here is that Akiva is something that is not exclusive to Islam. aqeedah is something that is not exclusive to Islam. So, this means that an Akita could be correct, and it could also be incorrect. So, for example, if there is a person who is Christian, he has certain beliefs, what are those beliefs called his aqeedah there could be a person who is an atheist, he also has certain beliefs
about God or origin or human existence, all those beliefs are what his aqeedah So, we see that there are two kinds of acleda one is a pita which is slowly
meaning that which is correct that which is sound. And the other kind of Akita is that which is faster, meaning that which is incorrect, that which is corrupted, which are p that is correct and which are p that is false because everyone claims that
They believe in is correct. So how do we know that a particular acleda is correct and a particular epi that is false? What makes our data correct and what makes it the false? It's what a person believes in, it could be true, it could be false. So for example, a person believes that they should not have meat. But this is something that is false. Why? Because a human body needs that nutrition. Right. But if you look at human biology, if you look at your own teeth, for instance, you have both types of teeth with which you can consume vegetables as well as meat. So your body shows that you are fit for the consumption of meat. So anyway, it's a matter of knowledge. And it's not necessary
that it should be correct knowledge. It's not necessary that it is based on proofs and evidences, and this is the reason why and Arqiva could be false. And RP that could be true. So based on this discussion now, what is it that makes an Al Qaeda true? That when it is based on an authentic a correct evidence, so in other words, when it is metabolically hoc, when it is according to reality? When a set of beliefs is according to reality, then it will be correct.
Now what is reality? what is reality? How do we know that something is real? When it is based on what divine revelation, when it is according to the teachings of the prophets, when it conforms to what Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed? And all of the prophets of Allah, what did they bring the same Arpita because it was sent by who? Allah soprano. So we cannot imagine that Allah would send a different set of beliefs with new Allison and a different set of beliefs with Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam No. So the correct aqeedah is that which is according to the truth which conforms to reality, what is reality? What Allah and His Messenger inform us off? What Allah and His Messenger inform us
off, and then what is false or either or corrupt or either incorrect or later?
What is that
anything that people have invented anything that is based on people's imagination, or their limited knowledge or their limited understanding or their limited experience, but remember, that mainly our key that is false when it contradicts sound or later,
when it contradicts sound or later. So for example,
a person believes, what that when people die, their souls wander,
their souls wander in the earth, and they come to visit people, they come to visit their families, this is a belief of a person.
It is based on what
what his mother told him.
What his grandmother told him, it is based on all the many stories that he has heard. Okay, this belief is based on what nations narratives
that may be based on some kind of experience even what, like for example, a person died and their spouse saw them in a dream that I'm coming to visit you tomorrow. So this is look, that means that when a person dies, their soul wanders. However, does this contradict what the Quran and Sunnah tells? it contradicts it very clearly. Because what do we know? That once a soul leaves the earth, where does it go? In?
Right? And that is where it waits until the day of judgment. So this idea that the soul one is, is false, why because it contradicts what Allah and His Messenger have informed us off.
Likewise, there could be an Akita, that a person believes in very firmly that human beings have descended from apes, they have come about from apes homosapiens. And for that, he presents some physical evidence even possible, people do that, and they present different kinds of logic and explanations. However, is this sound Akita? Is this correct? aqeedah? No. Why? Because it clearly contradicts what Allah has told us about human origin. What does a letter is about human origin that he created then
Right, he created Adam and Adam Anderson and he was created as a human being.
Adam, the word Adam is from edema, which means beige Brown. It said first of the human skin, which is in different shades of beige and brown, summer light, summer dark. So the very word Adam, what does it show that human beings are not ever like apes? They were never apes, they will always as we see today, yes, there is a difference in height perhaps. However, when it comes to human appearance, and understanding and knowledge, that has been the same, because Allah subhanaw taala created other medicine. So anyway, one is a pita, which is sound, and another is a pita that is false. So I have a question for you. How many Akiva saleha? Are there today? Only one? Why?
The one that Allah has sent the one that Allah and His Messenger have taught us, the one that we find in the Quran and Sunnah, the one that is in the religion of Islam. Why? Because this is the acleda, which like we discussed earlier, the hill battle mania D.
There is no false hood that can corrupt this arcada the previous scriptures that are less pantalla revealed what happened, people corrupted the book shake their hand if they changed it. So as a result, what happened the sound or Peter was lost. However, when it comes to the Quran, what do we learn in
decorah in Allah who, the half years old, Allah is going to preserve the book, and as the book will be preserved, what will be preserved the correct Akita as well.
What do we learn about the Quran, in the hula, Gonzalo or bellami, that indeed is revelation from the Lord of the world's and his knowledge is complete and absolute.
So, he is, he always existed. So, what he has informed us after this is right, this is real, this is false, that is correct. So, how many leaders out there today
only one, and how many false or corrupt leaders are there today? Many,
many, there are many that are out there, whether it was the leader of Michigan, or it is the leader of the hood Massara. Why? Because all of this is a product of what human thought, human intellect, human experience and human experience knowledge, it is limited, it is influenced by customs, it is influenced by human thought,
the fault of it as it existed, the result of distortion and the changes that people brought to what Allah the panel data revealed earlier. So with this clear in mind, that a cleaver can be anything that a person believes in, however, and arcada could be true, and acleda could be false, there is only one true leader and there are many faults or cleaners out there. So then what is that true? Arpita? What is a VEDA? In Islam?
Arqiva in Islam is to believe in one's heart and affirm the certainty of Allah to believe in one's heart and not just believe, but to affirm the certainty of, of a less apparent third of the angels, of the messengers of the books that Allah has revealed. The last day and Divine Decree that is both good and bad.
So this is acleda. In the religion of Islam,
the sources of Akita like we discussed earlier, that there are many different archives out there, many different beliefs out there, and they're based on different things, whether it's human perception, or intellect, reasoning, imagination, news information, where people have heard from others human nature,
that what is the correct source of data? What is the most reliable source of Arpita? Is it one of these things or is it something else?
It is something else and what is that divine revelation? So the Islamic VEDA, the source of Islamic Akita is divine revelation, which is of two types. Firstly, the Noble Quran and secondly, the authentic prophetic traditions which have been transmitted. So Quran and Sunnah.
I am and the Hades.
So what does this mean? That belief in Allah, belief in the angels of Allah, belief in the books of Allah, the messengers of Allah, the last day that Allah has promised the decree of Allah, all of this should be based on what? The Quran and the Sunnah. Not people's imagination, not customs and people's culture. No, it has to be based upon Quran and Sunnah. When it is based on Quran and Sunnah, then it will be correct.
And when it is believed in, without any doubt, and in all its entirety, then it is correct.
So what are the three things that I've mentioned over here?
Correct. Islamic Athena is what? That which is based on Quran and Sunnah. That which is true of any doubt. And that which is believed in all its entirety, all its entirety, what does that mean? That a person believes in Allah and His angels and his books and his decree? and everything else that Allah has informed us of and everything that the messenger sallallahu wasallam has informed us off? Whether we understand it, or we don't understand whether we can see it, or we cannot see it.
All right. This is what the correct Islamic Aveda is.
So for example, if a person says yes, I believe in God, however, I can only believe in something that I see. Okay, God, I understand I cannot see him. But angels since I don't see them. I don't believe in the angels. Is that correct? Islamic? What if he says I'm Muslim, I believe in Allah. But I don't believe in the angels. Is that acceptable? No.
What if he says, I believe in the prophets, but I don't believe in Muhammad Sallallahu Salah
Is that acceptable? No. Well, if he says that I believe in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam however, I don't believe that it is necessary for us to follow him.
Is that acceptable or Kedah know why? Because his belief about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is not correct. When he says I believe in the Prophet sallallahu sallam, however, I don't believe that he was the last messenger. Is that acceptable? No.
So we see that when it comes to the metric of PETA, we cannot pick and choose. We cannot use our own logic. No, we have to believe in our cleaver, as Allah and His Messenger have taught us.
You understand? It's a whole package, we have to take it as it was given to us. We cannot take parts of it and leave parts of it. We cannot change it and twist it and shape it according to our desires. That is like for instance, a person says, Yeah, I think there will be a day of judgment. I'm not sure maybe, perhaps. And obviously with that doubt, he's not believing in integrity. And believing in integrity also like the examples that I gave that a person says yes, I believe in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam definitely he was a messenger of Allah.
However, I don't believe that he was the last messenger.
Then this is what incomplete belief about Muhammad, Allah, Allah. So there are similar but there's a slight difference.
So basically, if you think about it, Islamic Akiva is what to believe in what Allah and His Messenger have informed us off to believe in what Allah and His Messenger have informed us off. And that is, what parts of it are Shahada and parts of it are
parts of it are, you know, we can see and other parts we cannot see it's unseen. What's the evidence of this in the Quran? We learned a lesson palletizers lacell Bella antoniou would you help him table and matcha tea will not work in Melbourne. Oh man am Anna Bella he will Yeoman earthly well Malaika de Waal kitabi wannabe. piety is what in believing in Allah, the last day, the angels, the books and the profits
at the inner circle dakara within Anna rasuluh Bhima de la Universidad de Lune. The belief of the messenger and belief of the believers is the same. It's the same Conan m Annabella. He wore Malaika t de wakatobi. de la new Ferrari kobane Rosalie underlying the spark,
learn new Ferrari kobane I had a mirrorless
We believe in Allah, His angels, his books, his messengers, and when it comes to his messengers, we don't differentiate between any of them meaning we believe in all of them. So this is where entirety comes in, that you can't pick and choose. You have to believe in everything that Allah has informed you. So basically
a PETA is well, or camel Eman
Islamic Akita is what can Lima I'm sure as children you must have learned about what a man is Aaron to be lay over their equity he read it a good to be really valuable as well. It will surely mean Allahu Allah Almighty by the mouth.
So, this is what Islamic arcada to believe in all of this without doubt and in all their entirety.
Like we discussed earlier, that this RPA is what is the foundation. It is the foundation on which the deen of a person stands on.
If you read this verse of sort of Bukhara that Lana Federico Bina I had in the room Julie, what comes after work Carlo? severe now what? So when the summer and PA come, when disobedience come after belief, when can a person do when acleda is there, when that belief is there, and if that belief is not there, then that amyl is useless?
Think about it, if there is a tree, the roots are the foundation, if the roots are there, if they're strong and firm, then only the plant can survive. But if you leave the leaves, leave the branches, leave the trunk leave this time, and you just snap off all the roots, just snap off all the roots, will the tree stand? No, you're not doing anything to the trunk, you're not doing anything to the leaves or the branches. You're just snapping the roots off. But can that tree stand? Can it survive? No, it can't
take the example of a building a structure the foundation is not there Can the building stay? No, it cannot. So aqeedah is essential. The Islamic belief cannot be based upon any uncertainties, cultural practices, sayings of the elders, a person's HD head, what is their reasoning or opinion or point of view? No. It is based only on what the Quran and Sunnah
to the correct.
One is that the correct aqeedah is what provides the foundation on which the dean stands and the validity of righteous deeds is also based upon its correctness. What does that mean? That if Akiva is correct, then the actions will have a meaning, then they will be accepted by Allah. And if the leader is corrupted, then no matter what a person has accumulated in his life, no matter what he has achieved, no matter what he has performed, it is not going to be of any worth in the hereafter.
So what does it show to us the importance of correct acleda
it is not a matter that should be taken lightly. It is something very, very serious. Because think about it. If a trader, if a person's aqeedah is corrupted, and use and years of his life, a person is busy performing various actions, but those actions will bring him nothing. Why? Because they're his Arpita his faults.
The one African, they've been oppressed, so many Salatu the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Yes. Did they not accompany him to various battles? Yes, they did.
Did they not see the profits?
But all those actions, no benefit. No use. Why? Because our credo was not correct. PETA was not sorry. It was corrupted.
In the Quran, we're in total cost 110 femen Cana yo juluca. obese Alia Milan, Milan, slowly her while you shriek very bad that you will be
that whoever hopes for the meeting with his Lord, then let him do righteous deeds and not associate anyone in the worship of his Lord. He should not associate he should not do should because if he will do shake then his deeds will be useless. into the zoo. I number 65 million, what are called OSHA eleiko or even living in public law in a shakta layer upon analog when at akula nominal ha city through profit or loss
So it has been revealed to you and to those before you mean the messengers who came before you that if you do [???], then all your good deeds will be wasted and you will be of those who are losers.
So what does it mean that it doesn't matter who the person is?
It doesn't matter what good deeds they have done. If their leader is corrupted, then everything is useless.
Instead of the Zuma, two and three will learn about the Lucha masala Deen.
So worship alone making sincere for you the religion because Allah Allah Allah Deen Hollis the religion, worship is exclusive right of Allah subhana wa
insolate versioner we learn
in the yagoda la semana de they will not commanded except that they should worship a lot while making religion in worship, sincere for him alone, to see the emphasis on their head. Why is there so much emphasis in theory, because that is part of sound Akiva. And if their head is missing, then everything is useless. Because it was apparently data created as for what will not hold up to general in a lab.
So if we're not fulfilling that purpose, then every action that we perform is meaningless. It's not going to benefit at all. And this is a reason why the prophets of Allah, the messengers of Allah, their first priority was what? to correct the Arpita. So correcting the Akita, the first priority of all the messengers of Allah, meaning the first message they brought, was of what
the prophets, who would slowly shape or loosen up and all of the rest of the prophets, they conveyed the correct data to their people
into the model, it is equivalent when a quarterback Murphy couldn't be omitted or sooner any other law would, then he would travel that to every nation, we sent a messenger saying that worship Allah and avoid farhood what is the hood, any rebellious force that tells the person to not worship Allah, but rather to worship something else or itself? Meaning the tollbooth. So, every messenger brought the message of the heat. If you think about it, Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he stayed in Mecca for 40 years of his life before he became a prophet. Was he not known for his good qualities? Yes. Was he not a normal person? amongst his people? Yes. The people not trusting they did. But why is it
that they turned against him? What is it that brought all that opposition
when he brought the correct either to them?
Because, unfortunately, we think many people, they assume that as long as a person is good,
they should make it a paradise, they should be honest, you know, they should speak nicely to people, they should be trustworthy, you know, so on and so forth. If they have these good qualities, then they will make it to paradise. But if that was the case, that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam didn't have to be sent as a messenger, because, yes, there were many evils in that society. But at the same time, honesty was appreciated a lot. truthfulness was something that was given a lot of importance and regard in that society. I mean, they would say that we did not know what lying was not because it was condemned in the religion of Allah, but because it was something that they avoided, they
So they had good values, but they were not enough to see what I mean, good values, good things were not enough the machine, do we not know about them, that they used to give a lot of charity, they used to feed the poor in the hungry, and the pilgrims who used to come to perform the pilgrimage, they would spend so much on them, they will prepare food and save them, they would give water to them to drink. Have we not learned about this? Yes. So why is it that that was not enough? Because they were doing shift? Because a leader was not correct. And this is the reason why Allah subhanaw taala sent them to the people of New Zealand Salah whether or not good people in general, there must
have been because every society where there's evil, there's always some good as well. But what was the main problem? Why did a lesson new Allison and he stayed amongst them 950 years, telling them about what about or hate about the correct aqeedah in total are off versus 59.

do three and 85 out of these verses they tell us that the prophets of Allah whatever they say, are my people with Allaha. Malecon Manila.
Oh people worship Allah, because you do not have any God, but him. So all the prophets of Allah, this is the message that they brought. And this is the reason why they faced all that opposition. This is the reason why they faced all that opposition because before they receive Prophethood, they were people who were respected, who were, you know, appreciated for their good and noble traits. However, when they spoke about La ilaha illAllah, that is when the opposition came. Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. He also in the 13 years that he spent in Makkah, what happened he invited people to, to hate and correct Akita, that is where the foundation was built. And then later on in
Medina, that is where the structure was built.
The structure of the foundation was laid, where in Makkah, Akiva was built. And in Medina, what happened? The structure of the deen was built and what was that structure? The commands that I can, Emily yet. So if you think about it, our D. It has two branches. Okay, one is Imani yet, and the other is Emily yet. One is immediate meaning email. And the other is,
one is erotica. And the other is very bad.
So in Morocco, what was the focus at heart, and then the commands were given later? Why? Because if the commands were given and there are key there was not sound, then those actions would be useless. They would not be of any benefit.
in Hades, we learn, we'll be having a bad day Let me he said, I saw the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the fair of Luma jazz, while he was exhorting the people saying, All people say la ilaha illAllah tuifly who, or people say there is no god worthy of worship, but Allah and you will be successful. And this was very early on. So what is it sure that one of the first calls of the Prophet sort of artisan was what do La ilaha illa Allah it was to the hate the correct arcada a man from the tribe of boo Jame, he related that he asked a messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what do you invite people to?
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam replied, I invite to the worship of Allah alone. He who when some calamity strikes you, you call upon him and he removes it from you, when you are in the wilderness and lose your way and you call upon him, he delivers you. When you are struck by famine and call upon him, he causes vegetation to grow. So what do we learn? prophets allows him to not tell them, I tell you to press on a I tell you to give the cat
I tell you that you're allowed to marry four wives.
I tell you that when your wife is disobedient, you can strike her.
Is this what was mentioned? What was mentioned
though he believe in Allah because that's the foundation if that is correct, then everything is correct.
What do we learn in sort of the below him about Kalimantan? Paiva Casa de Ratan Baba, a slew her bit, the root is firm. The route has to be there firm. And then on that the tree will be and the branches will be well, further, we'll have a summer and then only do Cola, cola Hainan, it will produce fruit at all times when? When the foundation is there when the route is strong. Gentlemen, Abdullah, and our beloved among many other companions and said that we were with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we were strong Utes and we learned faith before we learned Quran. Then we learned Quran and our faith increased the alumnus Eman of local and they said we learned
Eman before Quran. And then Fela Mata alumna Quran is dead in Eman And when we learn the Quran then our email increased. So what does it show that the prophets of Allah said and when he taught people also, what did he start with?
What did you start with the correct arcada therefore, learning about the correct Arpita and rectifying Arpita in the light of Quran and Sunnah is essential because this is the only way to salvation. in Hades we learn the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, my alma will get divided into 73 sects, 73 groups, and each one will go to hell except for one. They asked what is that group? The prophets Allah Lawson replied that upon which I and my companions are.
So what does it show
That if a person does not have correct Akita he cannot be successful in the hereafter.
So what is the benefit and importance and necessity of the correct arleta our beloved Miss Ruthie narrative, that there was a person who had never performed any good deed except for the heat. What was the only good thing that he had done? There, he believed in Allah, with all sincerity and conviction, when his time of death approached, he asked the members of his family to burn his dead body until it would become charred, and then crushed the ashes. And on a day when the wind is blowing fast, blow the ashes in the ocean. So his family did as they were told, but he was still in a less grip. So Allah caused all the ashes to come together and resurrected the person and asked him
what caused you to do this? The man replied out of your fear. And Allah granted him pardon.
It doesn't mean that doing this is permissible. But what it means is that he was forgiven despite the many things that were wrong.
For what why was he forgiven? What was the only good thing he had done?
arcada was is correct, and this is why he was forgiven.
It is related that Ebola said a man bristling with armor came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and said O Messenger of Allah, shall I fight or become Muslim? Imagine there's a battle going on. And he comes with armor, and he says, shall I fight? Or should I become Muslim? First, the prophets that a lot of times said, become Muslim, and then fight. So he became Muslim, and then fought, and in that battle, he was killed. So imagine not even once Allah,
not even once Allah.
But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, his action was little, but his reward is great, why PETA was right. So he was saved. And if a person does not have the correct Arpita, then what will happen? What's the harm? What's the danger, I should have pulled over on her reported? I said, O Messenger of Allah, the son of dawn, this was a man in the time of Jackie do p establish ties of kinship and fed the poor? So will that benefit him at all? Meaning he used to do so many good deeds, he was so charitable, will it benefit him? He said, it would be of no avail to him. Why? Because he never said, Oh, my Lord, pardon my sins on the Day of Resurrection.
All his acts of charity and kindness will not benefit him. Why? Because that Arpita was missing. He never prayed to Allah. I've been trained narrated on the authority of his father that his grandfather informed that there has been while it was a mistake, he left his wheel saying that 100 slaves should be freed on his behalf. That's the idea that he left that when I die 100 slaves should be freed on my behalf, but he died as a mushrik. So his son his Sham, emancipated, 50 slaves and his son armor, he intended to free the remaining 50 on his behalf, but he said I should first ask the Messenger of Allah salon is Allah. So he went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and said, O Messenger
of Allah, my father left in his will, that 100 slaves should be freed on his behalf, and my brother has emancipated 50 on his behalf, and 50 remain. So should I do that on his behalf? Should I go ahead and free 50 slaves in the back of my father, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, had he been a Muslim, and you had freed the slaves on his behalf, or given sadaqa on his behalf or performed the pilgrimage that would have reached him. But because he was not a Muslim, then now no matter what you do, it's not going to benefit him.
So what does it show to us? What is the importance of the correct data, it is the key to salvation, then, even if the animal is very little, even if the structure is very small, even if the plant is very tiny, still, a person will be successful.
And if that our leader is missing, if that arcada is corrupt, then what will happen to a huge building that is standing on a weak Foundation, it will collapse. Philando Kamala homeo malkia Mati was no wait. No value shall be given to their deeds on the Day of Judgment.
So what's the main lesson that we can learn for ourselves from this?
Correct and strengthen their leader where we're very concerned about actions? Let's be more concerned about the state of our heart an email.
