03 Iman – Definition And Components
rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim furbish likely assadi were Sidley, MD
melissani Yakubu Kohli probenecid nerima.
So inshallah Today we will begin the chapter off email. You might say we studied that already what a pita is why are we studying about email?
Because many times we think that our key then emails are the same thing.
Whereas the fact is that they're not exactly the same thing. There's a lot of similarity. However, there is a relationship between the two. Because in the Quran and Sunnah you won't find the word Arpita.
In the Quran, we do not find the word RP though. What do we find for faith? What where do we find
In the Sunnah also the word Eman is mentioned repeatedly. But the scholars of Islam they have used the word Arpita in order to refer to the doctrines of faith as you can say Islamic theology as a science as a field of knowledge and Eman is the term that is used in the Quran and Sunnah. So, the first thing that we need to understand is the relationship that is between a man and earth either
or neither is the foundation and basis of email. I want you to visualize this
our data is the foundation the basis of a man
or leader is what the root the foundation on this stands, amen. So, what does it mean that a man is to have belief in something so for example, Eman is to believe in who for instance, believe in Allah.
So Eman is to believe in Allah. So, what is Arpita there are three that is, when this belief is embedded in the heart, it is deeply rooted in the heart.
Because what is the word earthly though it is that which is tied up. So Arqiva is when the belief in Allah is tied firmly to the heart, you understand? It is when it is tied firmly to the heart, it is deeply rooted in the heart. So it is basically when you tie a knot in your heart that I believe in Allah with all conviction with all firmness. So you understand Eman is the different beliefs that you have and people they vary in their level of belief. Sir Akita is what the firmness of that belief, the root of that belief and different people will have different levels of firmness. For some the roots will be very strong. For others the roots are very weak. So you understand
The relationship between earthly Dyneema think of a tree and think of the roots the roots as the Arpita and on that stands the man the trunk
and you can think of arcada as a because remember the word arcade arcade for at this also gives the meaning of mobile lava. So that which is tied firmly. So, a pita is the foundation and basis of a man. So, in other words, a man is the Akita that is established firmly in the heart, what is a man
that rapada that is established firmly in the heart and Eman is the manifestation of Arpita because it is standing on that Earth leader. So, for instance, a person you can say he is very particular about his prayers and prayers performing the Salah is a part of Amen. So when is it that a person can be very particular about his prayers when his earthly that in Allah is strong, the stronger the deeply rooted that faith is the more firm is a man will be the more firm his sweater will be. So you can say that Eman is the manifestation of Arpita so what is a man then let's go into the definition of the word email the linguistic meaning of email.
Now if you notice over here, I mentioned a few definitions in your notes and I have not translated them right Why? So that you focus on the Arabic because if the English is there what happens is that we start connecting the English with the Arabic I don't want you to get lost in that I want you to understand Arabic in Arabic.
So linguistic meaning an Emmanuel Leviathan and Eman Latin meaning linguistically it is a Muslim what is the most part are you familiar with it? The main word the main word from which other words stem for so it is mustard. Mustard from what from Munna you may know amen and it is mustard from Amana, you know, amen. And for Hua Minh, so the one who has a man he becomes EU movement. So which verbs are used for a man and so for instance, m and n la Sulu, you may know you may know web right ama is past tense you may know is Medallia and Eman is must look for who is meant to the one who has a man is called who and what mean. So what is a man then wahiawa meaning
the word Eman is from a meaning it is derived from the word M and what is an M with dual hoeve it is the opposite of fear.
So Eman is from M what are the root letters Hamza means noon or Elif mi noon, whatever you would like to call it. And it is the opposite of fear. It is from I'm an I'm an is safety, a sense of security, to have peace.
And that is the opposite of fear. So what does it mean that Rob is for honey? Okay, who is Robin is for honey?
Has anyone heard of this? Okay language that's a good guest because obviously we're reading what he said under linguistic meaning. He has written the book more for that and
much of the word analysis that you study has been taken from this book mufa data. And so we owe a lot to this great scholar in the past. So basically, he has written the book for fragile Quran, which is the dictionary of the words of the Quran. So he goes into the depth of the words of the Quran, that what's the root? What's the origin? What's the definition? What's the meaning what's the implied meaning, the different places where the words are used the different forms the different contexts. So, it gives a very beautiful picture of what the word is. So he defined a man as an A man who does leave
a levy Mara Who am a man is does the what is this leak to confirm the truthfulness of something to confirm the correctness of something. So Eman is what it does leave. But what kind of confirmation is this? With which there is emin? Meaning by which a person gets emin? So when a person affirms the truthfulness of something, then he will get and this is what a man is. What kind of a man what kind of safety what kind of security in total unarmed 82 we learn alladhina amanu Well, me albizu imana whom billman Bula ecola human Um, no, we're home. We're home. maka, Dune that those who believe and do not mix their belief with one what is little over here, shift meaning they do not do any kind of
shift. Then those will
have security Allah ecola homall em and they are rightly guided. So Eman is such belief that makes a person safe and secure how from what that he is saved from the punishment of Allah inshallah, because of Eman eventually he will have ultimate protection and safety where, in general with a man, a person is in the protection of Allah. So what does it mean that if he does not have a man, then he is in great danger. He is in great danger. So, Eman is such belief that makes a person safe and secure.
Think about it as if there is a person who is in a particular area. And he doesn't conform to the laws. He doesn't accept the sovereignty of the leader. All right, and he doesn't show any kind of conformity. So, will he have safety over there?
Does he have safety over there? No. The cops are after him to find him and then put him to trial. But if a person accepts the authority conforms with the law, right? He acknowledges he confirms, then will he have security? Yes, he will have security. Even if someone else comes in harms him. Will he be granted security by those in power? Yes. So just like that when a person has Amen, then he has security and safety from who and
then he is saved from other Muslims. But it doesn't just stop there.
The cycle of Amman, it doesn't stop there. When a person has a man he gets a minute. And he gives an as well because remember the word Minh is not just one who has email. It is also one who gives a man one who is a source of security and safety for others.
So Eman is not just a verbal claim, but it is an actions that when a person will have faith in his heart, that he will be a source of security and safety for others. What's the evidence of that? Hadees in which we learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said as a Muslim woman Saleemul Muslim Muna, mainly sunny de Amazonas, who, from whose hand and tongue other Muslims are safe, while may no man Amina Jarrow, who by our Echo, and the believer is he from whose evil his neighbor is safe? But what is sharp? So what does it mean? That mean is one who gives
movement is one who is a source of security and safety and peace for others. So you see, it's a circle starts with belief, okay, this is what a man is, does.
Which brings me in how do a person and through him, to others, through him to others. So this is the linguistic meaning of the word, amen. It's all about safety, and security.
Now, what is the technical meaning? What is the technical definition of email, email and remember that there are many, many definitions out there? Okay. So don't be surprised if you read this definition here. And you're the teacher, for instance, mentioned a different definition, because every definition, it opens your mind in a different way. It teaches you something about a man in a different way. All right, so be open to different definitions. So what is a man a man is a crop, Alma tells him Lil kabuli Well, Aidan, it is a crore almost all GMO Lil kabuli Well, it on what is a clause? A clause is to admit to accept the correctness of something, the validity of something, the
soundness of something, other scholars have said that it is a vehicle nostalgia.
So, across the stick, they give us a similar meaning and what is that, that it is to affirm the truthfulness the correctness of something to admit it to accept it, but it is not just accepting the truthfulness and correctness of something a person could say that yes, the Quran is the most authentic book, there is no error in it, it is free of all errors, they acknowledge it or for instance, there could be a non Muslim scholar and they could say that the collection of Mambo Hari, that is the most correct and authentic collection of narrations. He could say that and there are many non Muslims who have studied the Hadees
and history of Hadith the way Muslim scholars or not, you'll be surprised. So they do
they accept it. They say that there are no errors. It is factual it is 100% correct. However, Is that sufficient? Would you
calls to person Muslim No, across such a clause that is almost tells him without the meaning that necessitates that demands. What does it necessitate? What does it require from a person, Lil qubool to accept it COBOL is what accept. So not just affirm the correctness but also accepted, also accepted? Like for example, a person could say that, yes, this person, I understand that they have been granted such and such position in a particular company. I accepted it's on it's on the news, it's, you know, it's right outside their office door. They have that title. But do I accept it? No, I don't.
They may be the manager but I don't accept them as my managers, I will not answer to them. I will not do what they asked me, don't people rebel in this way all the time. So is that email No, Eman is such affirmation that leads a person to acceptance, but acceptance. Is that sufficient? No. There is a step forward. And what is that? Well, it on what is it on surrender? that a person also surrenders. So for example, a person says, Yes, I understand that this person has made the manager and I also accept them as my manager as my boss. However, I'm not really going to do everything they told me. I'll do some but I won't do everything. Is that is on is that surrender? No, it's not. So
Eman is a cron almost LGM little Cobolli? Well, it on this is why Eman includes many things. First of all, it includes a cron bill called
a crawler will help so you can write alongside these words okay. A crawler will call which is to confess to admit in the heart. Secondly alpa bowl, or you can say at the snake, how will listen, that a person accepts it. And he declares that acceptance how by the tank? So for example, a person believes in his heart he says that, yes, I believe in Allah, I believe in Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, then he doesn't just keep that in his heart. He also says it what I shall do Allah, Allah in the law, what I showed you under Muhammad Rasulullah. But is that sufficient? No, there's a third step. Which is it on? Meaning allama bilgileri.
To act to perform actions, how with the limbs to perform actions with the limbs, which is why in sort of the Toba? What do we learn that if there are people who say that they're Muslim? And then what two things I mentioned, when you can spare their life? What do things, accounts for data, or add to the data for a while?
If they establish the prayer, and they give this a cat, and what are they, your brothers and faith? But if they're lacking these two things, then you won't accept them as Muslims. Right. So Eman includes all these three things. What
does the bill is an animal Bill bilgileri? Everybody said,
Good. Now if you make a box, and in that box, you write these words across the almond. Or you can say a crock Cole, I'm sorry. So what does it show that he man
is what made up of all these three things? If a person says I believe but I don't pray, and I'm never going to pray. I don't believe it's necessary to pray. I believe in a love but I don't believe it's necessary to presolar Is that acceptable? You know, what is that a person says that, yes, I know, I'm supposed to pray about, you know, pray for me. At least they're acknowledging the fact that you're supposed to pray as a Muslim as a movement. All right. So that is acceptable still, yes, there's a big problem, but it's still acceptable. But if a person says, I believe in Allah, but you don't have to press Allah, you don't have to give the cat This is not part of Islam. Is that even
So Eman is what it is a combination of the heart of the tongue of the body. It is a combination of what you feel what you believe in your heart, what you say with your tongue and what you do in your actions. It is a whole package. You cannot cut it up. You cannot take it in parts. You cannot separate our mind from Eman. Take the example of the tree again. Okay, where the roots are necessary. Can you just chop off the trunk? If you chop it off? Is that a tree? No, it's not a tree.
Only the routes are there. And they're useless because there's nothing going out. All right? Likewise, if the tree is able to chop off all the branches, will it produce any fruit? will it give any shade? No, it won't give any shade. It's not going to be useful tree at all. So when is a tree complete? When it has the branches, the trunk, the roots, the leaves, the fruit, all of that together makes a tree and just like that, the man is what the Akita, and the armor and the coal, the faith and the heart, everything combined. That is what matters. So this is the technical meaning of Emacs. Now, the Satan that you see over here, the verses of poetry.
These verses a portrait avatar lipset, who was abolished the uncle the Prophet sallallahu sallam, I'll just mention to you the first line, while aka the alum to be an Edina Mohammedan Min hiree at the end in Berea. tienen. He said that certainly I know that the religion of Muhammad, that is the best religion that the creation has ever been on.
It is the best religion I know that. And he said Lolo Malema are his alma sub but in LA at some hand with Akka MOBA, you know, meaning if it was not the fear of, you know, reproach and, and from my people and the fear of being abused by them, then you would have seen me happily accepting this theme.
So is this email is an email I know. He admitted that it was the correct religion, the best religion, but was that accepted as email? No. So just because someone is praising the Quran, praising the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. That is not sufficient. What is necessary is that we do something as well. We show it with our actions. Because in the Quran, we learn about the hypocrites, what does the last pound are to say about them? That will mean a nassima Yoku, amen. Belay, you will believe video we'll have here but what is unless a woman will be more money. Why? Because there's verbal claim of a man, but the root is missing.
So where the actions are necessary, the root is also necessary, you can't separate the two, they both have to stay together. And remember that if the root is strong, if the leader The foundation is strong, then will the tree grow? Yes, it will want it. But if you focus just on the branches and the leaves, then will it grow? Know the roots need nourishment as well. So for instance, if you have a beautiful plant, and you put it in sunlight, Why? So that, you know it can get sunlight, it can get fresh air, and it can grow, but you don't give any water to the roots?
Will it live. But you might say it's getting sunlight, I even open the window so that it can get fresh air. But when it grow, it won't grow. Why? Because the roots have to be nourished. If the roots are strong, then the tree will grow. So just like that, if there are three that is strong, then the actions will come. How automatically. So what should we focus on just the actions? No, we should also focus on strengthening Eman because many times our focus is on what? perfecting outward actions. So for example, as soon as a person thinks about taking their Islam seriously, they think I should immediately put on my hijab.
Whereas in the heart, they still don't have any love for Allah, any fear of Allah in the heart that Arpita is not still strong. So what will happen, they will put it on the step outside, somebody gives them a look, I can't take this. I have to take it off. Likewise, a person says okay, I should praise Allah. But the root is not strong. The man the fear of Allah, the love of Allah is not there. The realization that I'm going to be answerable for all my prayers in the hereafter. It's not there in the heart. It's a person will pray once Allah and then miss the other. And then somebody who's trying to wake them up for 15 minutes for half an hour for their future sauna.
Right? Think about it. Why is it that we struggle with performing certain prayers? It's because the foundation is weak. Because if we truly believe that five solid data obligatory on me, a lie is going to ask me the angels are going to go and report to Allah that nobody needs to wake us up for Sunnah.
Isn't it? So nobody needs to wake us up for that then we will get up ourselves. Just like when you know you have to catch the bus in order to get to school. Otherwise, you'll miss it. Then what will happen? Does somebody need to wake you up? No.
Somebody needs to tell you to speed up No, then the action will come automatically. So that realization that you have been that certainty that conviction, that route has to be very firm that has to be fed and naturally what will happen? The actions will come, the words will come. The moon African in the Quran, we learn about them, that politics are available and that some of the Bedouin Arabs, they say, we have believed Allah says on lamb to me, No, tell them you have not believed what I can call a slum, but say that we have surrendered, because they were only outwardly showing their faith. How? By going to the masjid by accompanying the prophets of Allah, Islam to battles, but in
the heart A man was missing. Allah says, Allah made the holy man if you will become yet a man has not entered your heart. Because if it will enter then what will happen? What will happen? actions will come naturally. So an Eman is what I'll explore ulmus tells him little COBOL while Iran all of this together. Now what is a man in Islam? What is a man in Islam? This was the definition of email. If in your test, let's say you're asked what is he men define it. So what will you write? That is to be even a line the messengers What will you write? Allah Corrado must tell them him no kabuli? Well, it is and what is Eman in Islam? It is the belief in what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
came with from his Lord. This is a summary of it all. Eman is what to believe in everything in everything that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam came with from his Lord, whether it is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us, Allah is Harlock or it is it the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us that you will be resurrected? Or is it the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us there is punishment in the grave. Or it is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us that there are jinn that there are angels.
So all of this is what what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought believing in all of it is what he meant. There are a candle Eman pillars of Eman which are what? belief in
belief in Who? Allah, the angels, the messengers, the books, the day of judgment, the Divine Decree, these are what our candle right there the pillars of a man. But all of them they were taught by who? The prophets are the LA video center, right? This is why when a person has to become a Muslim, what do they say? I shall do Allah, Allah Illallah
Muhammad Rasulullah All right, because your Eman cannot be complete, until you believe in Allah and the messenger sallallahu taala. And for that you have to believe in everything that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam brought. So what are the components of email?
What are the components of email? has an adversary Rahim Allah. He said Eman is not by decorating oneself nor is it by wishful thinking. Eman is not just what you show. Or what do you think that a person says? Yeah, I'm a very strong believer. My faith is really strong. And you know, look at the size of my hijab and look at the length of my prayer. It's not just what you think. Because if you ask any person, did you love Allah? What will they say? Of course? I never know because that's the politically correct answer. But when it comes to Salah, then it shows whether they really love Allah or not. So Eman is not by decorating oneself nor is it by wishful thinking rather it is what settles
in the heart and is confirmed by actions. It is now what color fill colored or South Dakota?
What settles in the heart and if it is settled in the heart, naturally what will happen? The actions will confirm Mr. McCarty he wrote about Amen. In his collection in the chapter of a man that will who will colon warfare alone imagine his statements and actions.
So in other words, Eman is not just to say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah. But Eman also includes actions. Well, who atone were feminine. This is why
Imagine is complete with the presence of all of these components, which components that those which are mentioned were here, first of all, are paid that will call or our local.
What is that? The belief that is in the heart. This is the first step, the belief that is in the heart. So, when a person has the correct belief in the heart, then yes, they have a part of Amen. All right, one component is there jabril he asked the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, in the famous hadith of gibreel, right when he came to the Prophet salado Center, the form of a man and the people didn't recognize him at all. He came as a visitor in the form of a visitor, he came, sat right in front of the profits of the Law Center, and asked him several questions. And amongst the questions that he asked him was, tell me about Amen. To the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, and Emmanuel and
took me in BelAir. He, when he got he will go to be he will Russo he will be Leo will fit or will cut the head, he wishes he, he said he man is that you affirm Allah, His angels, his books, his messengers, the last day, and that you affirm the decree, the good of it, and the bad of it. And gibreel said, You have told the truth.
So first of all, he man is to have Arpita to help to have the correct belief in the heart. does it stop there? No. Secondly, the second component of email is I'm a little certain actions of the heart.
You might say heart actions, yes. There are certain actions which are performed by the heart. Like for example, love, where is it? It's in the heart sincerity. Where is that in the heart? fear? Where is that in the heart? And remember that some actions of the heart are good, and some actions of the heart are bad. So for instance, jealousy, is that in the heart? Yes. hatred. Is that in the heart? Yes. All of these are in the heart and they are all you can say our model, they're all the actions of the heart. Now, when a person has a man then his heart must perform certain actions okay. And the heart must refrain from actions Why? Because certain actions they prove that yes, he has emerged
they are a requirement of a man and other actions if the heart performs it that will weaken the Eman or that will invalidate that human. So for example, in the heart is your pain certainty. certainty is where is it something physical? Where is it? It's in the heart. So in Buhari it is written eliakim EMA Niccolo that you clean? All of it is EMA meaning it is Eman in entirety. Okay, because it is in the heart. Likewise, sincerity. Is that in the heart? Yes. When a person performs an action only for a law. That is what a part of a man because his he man requires him to have that kind of sincerity in his heart. And if a person is performing an action, but while he's showing off,
and what is that it is called circle, a minor shift.
Because it contradicts even doesn't it contradict each other? it contradicts even one is that a person is doing something sincerely for Allah and the other is that a person is doing something just to show off before others. So that will contradict email. Likewise, love is in the heart loving Allah. That is a requirement of email that we don't just believe in Allah, but that we also love Allah. What do we learn about the believers when levena Amma No, I shall do hobo lilla. Those who believe they're intense in their love for Allah, meaning they don't just know Allah, rather than love him and they don't just love him. They really really love him. So loving Allah is a part of the
man and where's that love? In the heart? It is the action of heart. Likewise, fear. Fear is an action of the heart. Right. So fearing Allah, is that a requirement of a man? Yes, it is a part of a man. Yes. For instance, in the Quran, surah Allah Amman, I 175 we learn Fela Taha for whom will have Fulani in come to move, meaning if you really believers then what should you do?
Don't fear them rather fear Allah. So in this ayah what is a condition a requirement of a man? fear of Allah because look at the eye, Allah says will have phony, in con tongue meaning if you really believers then you must have fear of Allah. So a component of Eman is I'm a little call which kind of actions, actions such as love of Allah, fear of Allah. What else is in the heart? What else are the actions of the heart?
humanity at the welder, lowering oneself humbling oneself for the sake of Allah. Right, that is also from a man. What else?
How about modesty and China's
modesty? And China's?
What do we learn in the Hadees that I'll hire?
modesty is from a man. So if
the person does not have that shyness,
from Allah, what kind of shyness that he's not shy to commit sin, then Is that okay? Is that a sign of a man? No.
Eman requires that a person is embarrassed to sin before.
Like when we believe that certain people are really great than what happens we become shy of them. And then we're so shy, that we don't say anything in front of them. We don't do anything in front of them. Right? That love that respect has transformed into shyness. So higher shyness before Allah, and also shyness in front of people modesty in the way that a person walks in the way that a person talks and the way that he dresses up in the language that he uses. So all of that is from what hat and that is a result of events. Ohio is a part of a man in Hades which isn't intimately we learn the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Ohio. Well, are you sure but any minute Amen. modesty and humility,
modesty and humility and humility. They are both branches of Eman. They're both part of a man. So, Is this clear? The first component of a man is the leader of the club. The second component of Eman is our model. The third component is owner listen
the utterances of the tongue meaning what a person says.
So, there are certain statements that a person says and they are a requirement of
meaning a person must say such statements if he is truly a believer, like for example,
I shall do a la ilaha illa what I shall do under Muhammad Rasul Allah. This is what our lesson and this is a requirement of EMA And likewise, there are certain statements that a person must refrain from.
Because if he were to say them, then that will contradict his Eman. Rather, that will negate his email either partially or completely. Like for example,
what kind of statements show that a person doesn't have email.
Like for example, a person making blog to someone other than Allah, making blog to someone other than Allah, whether it is the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or his family or the angels or a pious person from the past, when a person will say such a statement that will negate his email like in the Quran, what do we learn in Ashoka?
If you do share, your deeds will be wasted. And schilke is done How? Through words as well, by calling out to other than Allah. So those kinds of statements have to be, have to be avoided completely about them when I 15. What do we learn welaka dokolo calamata they said the statement of disbelief when when a market Allah when the market the prophets of Allah, Allah, that was a statement of coffee. So imagine, it requires from us to say certain statements and to refrain from other statements. Your speech will show your emotion.
Your speech will show your email. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that is Hardee's and Buhari that a man who built around was a Bruna. Sherpa that Eman has 70 plus branches. Oberon was a tuna Sherpa for have been uhealth toda la ilaha illAllah. The highest of it the best of it is what to say la ilaha illa Allah so to c'est la ilaha illAllah from this Hadees What do we learn that it is a part of email, it is a branch of email, it is a component of email. So saying that, you know it
The law in a statement, so that is our only sad part of
the hardiest continues that and the least is to remove something harmful from the way and modesty is also a branch of email. Fourthly, Farrell djawadi, the actions of the limbs. The fourth component of email is the actions of the meaning certain actions are required from a person if he says that he has a man in his heart.
Like for instance, Salah when a person prays, then what does it show that they have email? And if a person does not pray, then what does that show that they like their email? In the Quran? In total bacala i 143 Allah says woman can Allahu Lilia Amen acoem Allah would never waste your Eman. What does even mean over there? Sunnah. Remember this was revealed after the real criminal after the Qibla was changed and the people were concerned about those Muslims who passed away before this incident occurred and they died basically praying towards beta lochness. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed that he would not waste your Eman meaning you would not waste your Salah you would still be
rewarded for all those prayers you don't have to repeat them.
But the fact that Allah use the word Eman for Salah, what does that show that performing Salah is a part of a man performing Salah is Eamon and if a person doesn't pray, and there's a big problem with him, either the demand is not there or it is incomplete. There's a big problem. It's not acceptable. So fair.
So what do we learn from this, that Eman when it's in the heart, then a person will have certain kind of feelings, then he will say certain words and his actions will also be different. Then when this is the case, then it means that a man will increase and decrease. So this is also effect that
way. And also it increases and it decreases. Because think about it. If component of Eman is
I'm gonna call the action of the heart. An example of action of the heart is love of love. All right. Now in certain situations, what happens the love that you have for Allah, it's a lot. So all of a sudden, what happens? You want to give in South Africa, you feel like reciting the Quran, you feel like praying Sunnah. You're like, you know, I'll forgive this person, your actions change. Why? Because that love is very strong.
And at other times it happens that that love is weak.
And instead of love, a person starts having, let's say, bad thoughts about Allah,
that Allah is upset with me. He doesn't like me. He is planning against me. He doesn't want good for me. These bad thoughts are there. Right? Now, these are extremes, extreme examples that I gave you. But it happens that we're always somewhere in the middle. Isn't it? Every day, every moment rather, it's a different feeling. Now, if you look at the definition of a man, what was it a cloth? Right? And then a cloth or a dust leak? Secondly, cool. And it on. And we looked at it in another way, which is that in the heart, on the tongue, and in the body, meaning through the actions. So in the heart, a person has a man in the profits of a lot earlier send them. Now there is one person who saw
And there is another person who has heard of him both believe, but is there a difference in their belief? They would be? Or one is a person who believes in the profits or loss and and why because their parents told him and another is a person who has studied the seal of the prophets of Edison. Is there a difference in email? Have you experienced a difference after studying the seal of the prophets of Oman, isn't it? Yes. One is that you believe in the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the other is that you study his words, his actions, his life, it's a different level of faith. Correct. So people vary in their economic as well in their societies as well. And one person even at one
point in his life, he could have a lower level, meaning lower level of faith in heart. And at another time, he could have a much higher level of faith in his heart. Why? Because he learned something. He experienced something he benefited from something he saw something. You believe in the Quran. You believe that it is from Allah, and then you read about an ayah and then you
Read about the scientific research that proves it. Will it increase your faith? Yes, your faith doesn't depend on it and hamdulillah but what will it increase your faith? It will you believe that Allah is a Holic? Allah has immense knowledge and power and ability. But when you go and see a huge glacier, and you go and see a huge, massive mountain, and you just stand in front of the ocean, and you look at the water just rolling to you and rolling back, your Eman increases, it increases the state of your heart interchanges. The second is the whole, right the tongue. Now one is a person who remembers a lot does it they could read the Quran recite the Quran, and there is a person who does
it. Is there a difference in their faith? Yes, there will be a difference in their actions. One is a person who, let's say is fasting on a particular day. And another is a person who was not fasting at the time of Muhammad, will there be a difference in the fate of those two people? Yes. One is a person who opened as fast and others a person who was just sitting there there's a difference right. So with actions also a man increases Eman, it increases, how does it increase? And how does it decrease? If you summarize, it, used to be thought of man, when better at the shape on it increases how with obedience to the Most Merciful and it decreases with obedience to shape on
when a person will obey Allah is a man will grow. And when a person will obey upon his Eman will weaken, it will decrease. Many times it happens that we want others to motivate us
that some people they depend on others, you wake me up or
you remind me to recycle on you give me a checklist so that I can make sure I have done this and this and this. They depend on others. And another is a person who's a man becomes a source of motivation.
So when a man motivates a person, then you don't need someone to wake you up, someone to tell you someone to remind you what happens you become self motivated.
Why? Because with every action that a person does the man increases.
Alright, and as the demand increases, the actions increase the good words increase the fear the love, the armato they increase. So a man increases and decreases. In the Quran Surah Taha 75 we learn what do you mean and I'm in a solid head for Allah Allahu Allah, that whoever comes to Allah as a believer, and he has performed righteous deeds, then those people will have the Raja to Allah higher ranks.
What can we learn that in the hereafter? In general, there are many, many, many ranks, some will have high and some will have low based on what he man he man, think about it, if there are different levels of Jannah that means people have different levels of emotion. What do we learn from the headset on the Day of Judgment, a person will be told to recite and ascend. So with that recitation with the polar lisanne what is happening is the Raja is increasing. And in this dunya what happens with the color Listen, your email is increasing.
So you understand there's a direct correlation over here. So increase and decrease of email in the Quran and Sunnah. There are many evidences that show to us that email increases and it decreases
the verses that you see over here on the next page, the order has been mixed up. So please make that correction. It begins with enamal minion alladhina Eradicator Allahu wa Jalla Kuru boom toliet la him Isaiah to the tomb even were allowed to be him yet Allah karoon who are the believers, those who when Allah is mentioned their hearts tremble. Why? Because that our leader in the cult, it trembles the heart with fear. Okay, that leads to a model called what Julius Malema do when the Verses are recited upon them, it increases them in their faith.
So what does this prove to us that Amina Eman increases because of listening to something because of certain feelings that came in the heart on hearing something on hearing the verses of Allah on hearing the mention of Allah and as a result they rely upon their Lord and Lita up Muna salata, woman, Moroccan amin ficando suppress Allah and out of what we have given them, they spent Allah says
Hola como una haka. Those are the believers in truth, love him Dada Jatin are interrupting him, while my fellow tone what is concluding for them our high ranks with their Lord and forgiveness and a noble provision.
So in this ayah What do we learn that Eman? It includes? Akita Theda
certain actions of the heart, certain statements of the tongue and actions of the body as well. And as these actions vary, a man will also vary. A man will also increase or decrease. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, undoubtedly a man wears out in the heart of any one of you. Just as clothes on your back, wear out the clothes that you're wearing, what happens to them eventually? Do they become old? Yes, sometimes you wear something brand new. And within a week you see a difference, don't you, for example, your winter jacket, you could be wearing a brand new jacket one day, and by the end of one week, what happens? You see that it's not that firm anymore. It's not that stiff
anymore. You see it wearing out with the passage of time. As you use it, it wears out. And just like that Eman also wears out, meaning it becomes weak.
It fades, it weakens over time. So keep asking Allah to renew the faith in your heart. First Allah and you just didn't imagine if you could will become.
So what does it show that your Eman is not stagnant, it doesn't remain the same. What will happen over time, over time, it will decrease and it will weaken. So what is necessary that we keep asking Allah to strengthen our faith. And we keep doing those things which will strengthen our faith.
It's just like, if you are on a boat, right and you're rowing against the flow of the water,
then you have to keep moving, keep moving, if you want to go forward, because if you stop what will happen, you will go with the flow of the water and end up somewhere else. So time is constantly passing, things are constantly happening. We are constantly going through different phases, different states, right, emotionally, physically, mentally. So as a result, Eman will definitely get affected. It will definitely get affected. Sometimes it will increase and sometimes it will decrease. But if you do nothing about it, it won't increase by itself. What will happen, it will decrease. If you neglect it, it will decline. So what is important then, that we keep increasing it?
Just like the companions? Were out? who aren't who he said, ageless, Bina Mensa. Come sit with us. Let's sit down for some time. And believe for an hour. What does it mean by believe for an hour, but let's renew our faith. Let's increase it. Let's grow it. Let's talk about Allah. Let's recite the Quran. Let's remember death.
Let's do something good. So that we can strengthen our faith. Because if we don't do it, it will become weak.
It's just like, you know, from your busy schedule, you always take time out to do certain things.
For example, clean your computer or clean your closet. Why is it necessary to do it every day? No. But what happens is that over time, because you're using it constantly, it gets dirty. And if you neglect it, eventually it will become a big mess. She won't be able to find anything over there. So maintenance is required for anything in this world. And for something that's very precious, like Amen, then you need a lot of maintenance, you can never neglect it. So for instance, these days you're busy and studying the Quran. Yes, your demand may be strong. Every time you read new verses Eman is strong. But if you stop all of a sudden,
then what will happen it will remain the same. It will remain the same No way.
If you don't do anything about it, it will decline.
So ask Allah to renew the faith to strengthen their faith. And you also have to do something take time out and attend to your email. Just like you take time out and attend to your body to your physical needs. You need to attend to your email as well. Because otherwise it will fade. What causes the increase of Eman? What causes the decrease of a man the benefits of a man how it increases how it decreases? inshallah we'll study about that in our next lesson. All right, so panicle law will be handed over to La ilaha illa Anta
