Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
lesson number 148. So total Islam
what is that and I'm not insane and when we bestowed upon the human being,
meaning, when we bestow blessings upon the human being, such as health, such as success, such as knowledge, what happens? What is his reaction? Generally, how do people react or other he turned away? He turned away from who from Allah subhanaw taala meaning he did not offer any gratitude. He did not even remember Allah out although he turned away he ignored completely one and he distanced began he he with his sight now is from the roof letters noon Hamza. Yeah.
And net Yoon is to keep away from something we have learned earlier well whom Ian honan, who, when owner knew that they stopped people from the Prophet sought a lot of Saddam and they also keep away from him.
So one, and he distanced, he kept away, he moved away, he remained aloof, be janee be here with his side. What does it mean by this? That he distances himself from Allah soprano.
He turns away from Allah, He does not offer any gratitude. He does not show any obedience or other one Abidjan up, he completely ignores
what either, and when Messiah who it touched him, I shall route the evil Can he is ever you're also greatly despairing. He is very hopeless.
So over here, we see one of the reasons behind depression. One of the reasons behind hopelessness, you're also from the roof address. Yeah, Hamza seen, and yet says, to give up hope of something
to give a pope of the fulfillment of something,
to think that it will never happen, it will never be fulfilled. Like, for example, if a person is promised by another, that such and such will be delivered to you at this time, yet says that he thinks No, he's just saying it will never be delivered to me, he's never going to fulfill his promise with me. This is what he says. And generally, yes, is also to give up hope of something before it's due time. before it's due to, you know, one is that if the person said I'll drop it off at 12 o'clock, and 12 o'clock, he doesn't show up one o'clock, he doesn't show up at two o'clock, and he's not coming. This is still acceptable. But if at 10 o'clock, you're saying, I don't think
he's ever gonna come. This is what giving up hope of something even before it's time. And sometimes it is also giving a pope after its due date.
So what either Messiah who shuffle, can you say when evil touches him, like for example, poverty or illness, or some extreme situation, he becomes this very, he completely gives up hope of a loss of help and mercy.
He does not think that Allah will ever help him that Allah will ever take away that difficulty from him.
And because of that, he does not even turn to Allah. He does not even make the art to Allah.
Some people, they don't remember Allah in good times. But at least in difficult times, they tend to praise Allah, they tend to make Dora
but there are others who don't remember Allah in good times. And they also don't remember Allah in bad times. Why?
Because if a person is not used to remembering a line, good times, when he's suffering, how is it possible for him to raise his hands up in prayer and make the wrong
if a person is not used to doing Likud? Then when he's suffering from pain, how can he do this? How can he pray to Allah He cannot. And then he completely gives a poll. He's like this problem is never going to go away. This illness is never going to go away. This is it. This is the end of my life.
Why does he react in this way? The problem begins when he becomes ungrateful for the blessings that Allah has given. That is where the problem begins for.
You see, when Allah gives a blessing, some people, what do they say? This is the time to enjoy life. I don't need to turn to God. I don't have any problems in my life. So why should I pray? Why should I make God?
Everything is fine for me. Why should I pray?
And he is so attached to the worldly blessings.
He's enjoying that when he suffers even the slightest loss. It's such a setback, that he goes into depression.
Because his life was all about those things. When they're gone from him, he doesn't have anything with him to understand.
Like, for example, if a person is enjoying the blessings, but he also remembers the loss of penalty if he does suffer from any loss, at least he has his Lord,
Like, for example, a YouTuber, his center.
When he had so much he worshiped Allah, when he had nothing, he still worship Allah.
And we see this, in so many prophets so many righteous, that those who remember a lion good times are also able to remember him in difficulties. But those who do not remember Allah, in good times, then they're unable to cry before him. they're unable to pray to Him, even in difficulties. So what's the lesson in this for us?
That we should remember Allah at all times, especially when things are good.
Generally, we reserve our a better our there are four difficulties, but you will see if you don't develop this as a habit, in difficulties, it will not even come out of your mouth
will say colon, each one meaning each and every person, yarmulke he does, he works according to what are the shakeela t according to his manner.
He each person behaves he does his work according to his shakeela according to his men
shakeela is from the room fetters sheen cataflam sheen kathlyn.
And check in is the manner the way in which a person does something
basically, chuckle, his appearance. And there are two types of shocker. One is of the body and the other is of the blue. One is the law hit the physical appearance, how tall a person is what kind of features does he have? What does color his hair type? What is it like his skin type, what is it like this is the physical appearance.
Then there is another type of chakra and what is that chakra, which is the appearance of the root
of the battery, which is the nature of a person.
And this nature is not tangible. I mean, you cannot see it.
The physical appearance of a person you can see it, but the nature of a person you cannot see it.
And this is the fifth row of a person, the way he is the way he thinks, the way he behaves. What he believes in his habits, his style, his tendencies, his mentality, his religion, his faith determination. All of this is what the color of a person
and the shadow of a person includes three things.
First of all, it includes the beer. But But yeah, I love beer. And what is Slavia it is the nature of a person, what he likes, what he dislikes, what he's inclined to what he's averse to. Secondly, it includes odd, which is habit like a person has a habit of waking up at a particular time every single day.
A person has a habit of not going to bed at a particular time. A person has a habit of being on time a person has a habit of being late Okay, this is what are the the habit of a person. And thirdly, it also includes the religion.
Now, you see every person's physical appearance is unique,
You will not find two people that are completely identical. Yes, you will find twins are very similar. But even they will have differences.
So if the physical appearance of people is not the same, then how can we expect that the habits of people, the behavior of people, the manner of people, the thinking of people should also be identical. It's not possible. Each person is different. So this is why our last panel data says that Cool, cool. Louis armello Allah shakeela tea. Every person works according to his manner, his behavior, his natural disposition. That is how he works. And each person is unique in how he functions. So who's right and who's wrong? Because this is what the conflict is always about. Each person says I am right and you are wrong. If a person is cleaning in a particular way, he says this
way of cleaning is the only right way
If you're mopping the floor This way, you are wrong.
And generally we try to impose our way on other people. And this is where conflicts begin.
So at the end of the day, who is right and who is wrong? Allah subhanaw. taala says for buku Arlen, so your Lord is best knowing he is most knowing the man of who is who he is, after more guided surveillance in way Allah knows as to who is most guided.
So we see that each person is different, each person is unique. And when Allah has kept this diversity, we should accept it as well. Because if we don't accept it, then we will create difficulties for ourselves. And we will also create difficulties for other people.
Many times our focus becomes changing other people, not learning how to live with them, how to deal with them,
many times it is seen that if a person does not get along with someone, what will you do? I quit, I cannot stay here, I cannot work here. I cannot live with these people. I cannot study with these people. Therefore, I'm moving.
If people are living in a hostel, they say move my hostel, if a person is living in a house to say, let's move house, I cannot live in this environment anymore. If a person is working at a particular place, he says move my office, change my work, change my task, because I cannot work with this person. Why? Why is there a conflict, because each person believes he is right. And remember that if you cut yourself off from other people, this is not a solution. solution is in accepting people the way they are. Like, for example, if two people get married, it's only natural that they will be different. In many ways. People spend many years, they give questionnaires, right to ensure that the
person whom they want to get married to is the most compatible one. But what happens? What happens when they got married, there's always so many differences. Now, in some things, you know, people do end up compromising. But another thing is like, I cannot compromise on this, if you don't compromise, you're only creating difficulty for yourself. You're only creating difficulties for yourself. The successful person is He who learns how to deal with people.
You see more or we will do Darren, who he was a governor for 20 years. And then he was a halifa for 20 years. He ruled for how long? 40 years. And, you know, it's amazing that a person has managed to rule a place for 40 years. So somebody wants to question him, that How have you been able to rule for so long. So he said, I have always kept between myself and my people, a hair strand. Here, the hair is thin, it's very delicate. And if you pull it too hard, what's going to happen? It's going to snap.
So he says whenever I would feel that they have a loose grip on it, I would tighten my grip. And whenever I would feel that they have a very tight grip on it, I would loosen my grip. This is how we should be dealing with people
that generally very, very tactful.
Whenever you think that you can get this message across to people, you can make them do something, do it. And when you realize they're not going to change, they're not going to listen, they're not going to accept this compromise over there. Because for any relationship to work, there must be compromise. There has to be compromise. At one point, you have to compromise. at another point, the other person has to compromise without compromise. You cannot survive. Your house will become a battlefield, your workplace will become a battlefield. It will. And in many places it has become a battlefield. People go to their homes, no peace. People go to their work, no peace. They go
different places no peace. Why? Because they're not willing to change. They're not willing to compromise. So this is a very important rule that we must remember.
And whenever you feel the trap to compromise, just think Allah knows who's right. Allah knows what money is. He knows how much I am trying. He knows how much I'm trying to sacrifice for a book of Allah Mo. The man who does Aveda your Lord knows very well as to who is better guided.
And this is a great test for a person that whenever he finds the truth, whenever he finds something different, he has to accept it or he has to change himself according to it.
This is a big test for a person.
Because many times people are brought up thinking that they are right, whatever they're believing is 100% truth, there's absolutely nothing wrong about it. But when they find something different, it's very difficult for them to accept it. This is where the test comes. And a person should remember that the truth is not necessarily what I believe in what I say or what the other person says, The truth is what what allows dependencies. So, when the statement of a law comes, then we must submit, then we have to compromise, then we cannot become stubborn.
And they ask you the question you who the profits are of all of a sudden, but who questioned him, the yahood why
they asked you
about the rule,
what is the rule,
rule has several meanings in the Arabic language and in the Quran also, it has been used in many different ways.
First of all, root means, the spirit or the breath of life,
and the idea here bill button, that through which a body is alive,
if the root is in the body, it will be alive, it will be able to move it will read, it will walk, it will talk it will eat.
And if the room is not there, then the body is as good as nothing. It's finished.
And the room it is not something tangible, meaning you cannot see it. However, its existence is visible,
isn't it? Can you see the room when a person dies? Can you see the room leaving? Perhaps only in cartoons and movies right. But in reality, when the room departs, you do not see it. However, its existence is visible.
And the roar is every living beings source of strength, life and energy.
every living being every creature that is alive, whether it is an animal or a human being, the route is what
that through which it gained strength through which it has life through which it has energy
it number 29 instead of slot number 72 instead of team number 12. Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned rules. Like for example, when a philosophy human rule, he found a fastener fee Maru hanaa. He started to set up about him at the time of his birth, or at the time of the creation of Adam Addison and what has been mentioned that the roof was blown into Adam or He said,
The roof is what the Spirit or the breath of life.
Secondly, also means why Revelation, Revelation. Why is revelation called rule
because just as the rule, the spirit, the breath of life is something through which the body is alive. Similarly, through revelation, the soul of a person comes to life.
Through revelation, the soul, the spiritual being of a person comes to life.
And if a person is unaware of revelation that a spiritual being is that
where do we find the meaning of rule to be working into the life it is 15 and instead of the sharada is number 52.
Allah Subhana Allah says Allah Fira de la gente, the arshi up Lu hamin, mo de Allah, Masha that Allah subhanaw taala he casts the revelation at his command on whomsoever He was.
Similarly waka Delica, ohana alayka, Muhammad a marina And likewise, we have revealed to you a rule from us. And rule over there means revelation, because the word where he has been used over there. Thirdly, the word rule also means it is also used for who Angel jibreel through hell kudos Where? kudos for our Santa Elena rohana Fatima Salah, Habash Alonso de nessa be ruhul amin
Venezuela Ecuador raffia so many places in the Quran into the Brazil is called as
fourthly, roar also means mercy.
In certain magetta I had 22 Allah spent Allah says what a yet a home below him in who and he ate them, he strengthens them with mercy from him, what Allah sends mercy, he helps them.
Similarly, is also used for research center in certain NASA I 171. a las pantallas says about recycleable kalama, two alpha in amarrian. Whoo homie know that he was a kalama. And he was also a guru from him.
So over here, yes, aluna, aka Angelou, they ask you about the rule. What does the rule mean over here? two meanings. First of all, the soul, the spirit, the breath of life. And secondly, who also means over here, Revelation, or onic revelation.
So they ask you about its reality. That what is it? Like? What is it made off? How does the revelation come to you?
How come it comes, and you have no forewarning of it?
You are not given a schedule, that at this point where he will come? The way he just comes at any time, by the will have a loss of panel data. So yes, I don't know Do they ask you about
what should you say to them all say to them, a rule the rule is min Ameobi, it is from the command of my Lord. Amma, as you know means command and it also means
it also means matter or affair. So if we take the meaning of a rule, to be the soul, the spirit, then the rule is of the matters of minority, meaning he has created it and he knows about and he has kept its knowledge to himself.
Secondly, if we take the meaning of life to be revelation, so a Roman murabbi, meaning the revelation comes at the command of my Lord,
not whenever I desire, not whenever I wish, but revelation comes to me at the command of minority
woman Ooh, Tito, and you all people have not been given meaning or enemy of knowledge in the collision except a little
Buhari has recorded that or the layman was earth He said, while I was walking with the prophet SAW a lot of setup on a farm. And he was resting on a palm leaf stock, some Yahoo some juice they passed by some of them said to the others asked him about the rule.
And some of them said, What urges you to ask him about that mean why should you and other side do not ask him lest he gives you a reply which you do not like?
But they said asked him they decided no, no, we're gonna ask him. So they asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about the rule.
And the prophet SAW the law doesn't remain silent for some time and the revelation came to him and then he recited this iOS aluna, carnivore call around him in the lobby woman at 2 million in law,
that you do not have much knowledge. Therefore, you cannot understand its reality.
You see, if you look at it, there are two types of
There are two types of knowledge. One type of realm is of material things, it is a physical things
which people can learn, through observation, through experience, through study, through experiments, you can learn about these things, isn't it?
Like for example, knowledge about birds knowledge about the weather, knowledge about the different climates, about the different types of soil, different types of people, you can learn about these things, how, by observation, experience experiments, so on and so forth. And each and every day people discover many new things. Whenever we study, people discover new things, people learn new things.
The second type of knowledge is of non material things.
Of those things, which are imperceivable.
Now, if such things are non material, we cannot touch them. We cannot see them. They're imperceivable then these things are beyond our scope.
No matter how much we try to learn about them we cannot learn about
the only way of learning about these matters is through revelation.
That if Allah tells us about that, then we know otherwise, we have no idea
For example, knowledge of the future
knowledge of the future.
Can you learn about what exactly is going to happen after 100 years? Can you know? Can you know about what exactly is going to happen to the earth as it comes to an end? through your just observation? No, you cannot. You only learn about the events of the future, the day of judgment, Jana, Jana, how? By the revelation that almost the Pentagon has given.
Similarly, angels, you cannot find an angel somewhere.
And you study the angel observe the angel know, you can experiment and other creatures, you can study other creatures, you can watch them you can observe them, but you cannot study angels, you can only be informed about them from what revelation, if Allah tells you something, you believe in it.
So, the first type of knowledge you can gain through observation, the second type of knowledge, you can only learn through revelation. This is why Eman believe is necessary. believe in the unseen is necessary.
Because if a person does not believe in the unseen, then he cannot have any idea about such things.
Now, we see that the people they ask the prophets all of a sudden about a rule, if we take the meaning of a rule to be revelation, can you see the revelation coming? No. Can you see the angel coming? No. Can you somehow hear what's going on? As the angel is giving the revelations the Prophet sort of answered him? No, you cannot. So no matter how much you try, you cannot find out about it. And if we take the meaning of a rock to be the spirit, the breath of life, then even then, it is beyond your ability to learn everything about it. If you look, the human being is composed of three things, one is the body the button, another is the room the soul and the third is the nafs or you
can say the mind. So, the human being is made up three things, the knobs, the button, the rule,
not the button and the knifes they can be sensed, they can be studied right. Like for example, what goes on in the mind, what goes on, in a person's nervous system, it can be studied
by for example, when people are being made to go through psychological examination or tests or studies or they will put something on the finger or something that will show to them if a person is lying, if a person is speaking the truth or not. Correct. So the button and enough they can be sensed, and this is why they can be studied.
However, the rule, it is beyond our scope, it is entirely a matter of the unseen.
This is why Allah subhanaw taala says it's been a mirabito determinant originally in Laconia. What the people were asking was related to the matters of the unseen. This is why the prophet SAW the loss and was told to give this response. Because if you look in this ayah, the response is not given. It's just been stated that it's meant to be and you have no idea. So the message of this ayah is that oh people realize and understand your limitations.
realize your limitations.
Realize that you can only learn to a certain degree beyond that you cannot understand.
And if you think about it, even if our last panel data gives us complete knowledge of what the root is, how it functions, how it comes out leaves,
would we be able to understand not entirely, because something that you haven't seen, something that you haven't heard, you cannot understand, you cannot understand about it.
Like, for example, if you look at it, languages, they're based on what they have a deep connection with the culture of the people. And in certain cultures, there are things which are not found in other cultures. So if you try to translate those words, you will not be able to translate,
Like, for example, when somebody said that, if San is an Islamic concept, which is why you don't find an English translation for the word, so, you can translate it as utmost good, you can translate it as kindness, but it does not fully convey the meaning of aerosol why because such a concept does not exist in this language, it does not exist in the culture. This concept is an Islamic concept. So if within languages you cannot translate, because of the limitations of people, then how can you understand things which are beyond your ability? How can you it's not possible Well, multidomain under me in the Canadian
Accept your limitations realized.
And do not doubt what Allah subhanaw taala is telling you.
What are in Shatner? And surely if we will learn Earth Heaven, surely we will definitely take away bility with that which Oh hanaa ilica We have revealed to you, if we wished we could easily take away the revelation from this Koran that has been given to you. If people are wondering, how come it has come? How was the Quran revealed to you explain this whole science of revelation to us? How is it possible?
Allah subhanaw taala says, we can easily take the score away from you, some mulata do you do then you will not find laka for yourself, be with it arlena against us will kealan any caretaker, any deputy, any trustee, you cannot find anyone to help you with regards to this. If Allah subhanaw taala wishes, he can take away the Quran, from the hearts of people, from the memories of people, and also from the most have, he can take it away because nothing is difficult for Allah. So in this ayah, we're made to realize that the Quran is a blessing. And we have to realize this blessing and be grateful for it. Because many people, when they learn about Islam, they get stuck at the point of
Revelation. How do we know that the prophets are not Islam is speaking the truth that revelation came to him? How do we know?
What evidence do you have?
The fact is that for revelation, we can only trust the messenger. Because nobody else can see it. Nobody else can experience it. It's only the messenger. So we have to take his word for it. And how do you trust him? How do you take his word for it? based on the content of revelation?
What are the words that he is reciting? What are the words that he is conveying? Don't they make perfect sense? Aren't they completely logical?
Similarly, look at his background. Has he ever uttered a lie before? how sensitive he is? how honest he is, how trustworthy he is. So if someone has not uttered a lie before, how can you expect that all of a sudden he's uttering great lies, and he's lying about God. It's not possible in Ramadan except a mercy. Meaning we have kept on with you. We have given the Quran to you. We have given the Quran to the people and we have not taken it away from them despite their ingratitude despite their denial. And this is only as a mercy from your Lord
in Africa, who indeed His bounty kana it is ever alayka upon you or profit sort of all the sudden it is Kabila. It is great. the favor of Allah upon you. It is extremely great.
Allah subhanaw taala bestowed many favorites upon the Prophet sort of artisan, despite the fact that he was born an orphan because his father had passed away even before he was born. But he lost pounds all of a sudden many favorites upon him.
And amongst those favorites, a las panatela gave him worldly blessings as well as blessings in the hereafter.
What are the worldly favors that he was given? That first of all, he was given Prophethood secondly, he was given the Quran. Thirdly, he was promised the protection of the Quran he was promised that this Quran will be protected in the national agenda declared in Allahu Allah.
Then he was also given a decisive victory for Fatima. He was given a high and noble status in this dunya he was given respect and honor to the point that even his enemies those who don't believe in Him, they respect him.
And if you look at the blessings, the gifts that the prophets are ultimately given in the Hereafter, even their numerous how, like, for instance, in this photo only we learned that he will be given mahalo mahamudra he will be given the help, of course of
an especial rank in general.
So in the formula who can or alayka Kabira indeed, his bounty upon you is very great.
And if you look at it in this context, what does the Bible refer to? What this blessing What's this extra favor? It's the blessing of the Quran. Because the Quran is the greatest blessing.
So if a person has been given the opportunity to learn the Quran, to understand the foreign to pass it on, it's one of the greatest blessings that he can be given.
So never take this as a burden. Always take it as a blessing. Just like a mother, when she gives birth to a child. Yes, raising children is difficult. It's very challenging. It's a very difficult job, but she enjoys. She finds a lot of pleasure in it. Why? Because she loves the child. She knows it is a blessing. And because she realizes that the child is a blessing
All of the difficulty, she can bear, she can tolerate, she can undergo, she can sacrifice many things.
We see parents who are very active socially, but once they have their children at seven o'clock my child goes to sleep too bad, I can't go anywhere. It happens with many people, they will sacrifice so much for the sake of their children. Why? Because they love them. Similarly, the Quran is also a huge lesson and if we really take it as a blessing, then we will not consider it to be a burden. We will be grateful for it. And this is something that we must realize
