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

Are you below him in the shape of a Julius Malema Rahim? lesson number 171 solo to hedge I am number 65 to 78

00:00:12--> 00:00:43

lm Tara, do you not see anila has a Huracan that Indeed Allah has subjected to you, he has subjected for your sake, what marfil or the whatever that is in the earth, the addresses to, to people, to human beings to us that Do you not see, that Indeed Allah has subjected everything in the earth for you. What does it mean by Sahara?

00:00:44--> 00:01:04

Sahara, you Sahara the screen, it gives us two meanings. First of all, it gives a meaning of making something subdued, making something subjective. So, that it does not have any freewill, it does not have any choice, it is just bought to service.

00:01:05--> 00:01:14

So, everything in the earth has been put to service for whose sake for whose benefit for the benefit of human beings.

00:01:15--> 00:01:44

If you look at it in the entire planet, there are so many systems, so many laws you can say that Allah subhanaw taala has set and all of them are fixed. And amongst all of the creation who has freewill who has choice. It's only us it's only human beings. And if you look at it, everything in reality, what is it benefiting human beings. So, Sahara, meaning he has subjected he has subdued for your benefit.

00:01:45--> 00:02:20

And secondly, Sahara also gives a meaning after he has made it serviceable for you, that it's under your control, that you are able to use everything in the earth, you are able to do whatever you wish. For example, if you look at it animals, from the biggest to the smallest, who has control over them, people, sometimes you see little children controlling huge camels, a herd of cattle sometimes, how is it possible? Because Allah subhanaw taala has given this preference to human beings over the rest of the creation.

00:02:21--> 00:03:03

So, do you not see that everything in the earth has been subjected for your benefit, you are able to use it. Everything is benefiting you. Murphy will have the and math and all the includes everything, animals, whether they are of livestock or otherwise. Similarly, it includes the land itself, in the form of fields in the form of orchards, the plants that grow, everything is benefiting you. And it's not just that everything in the land is benefiting you. But also the see wonderful, and the ships that carry it flows filled by hate in the sea, the M re at his command.

00:03:04--> 00:03:27

And obviously ships can only float on sea when alasa panel data has subjected the sea for your benefit as well. Because it's amazing how a ship can float it does not drown, but if you put a pin on water it will drown immediately it will it will float for a second. So who has placed the system Who has created in this fashion? Allah soprano done

00:03:28--> 00:03:35

so while full katagiri will barely be empty, and the ships What do they carry.

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

They carry people as well as their loads.

00:03:40--> 00:03:48

William seagull, and he holds a summer the sky and Decker Island out less it should fall upon the earth.

00:03:49--> 00:03:52

The car from the root letters, well cough I

00:03:54--> 00:04:01

Walker literally means to fall down. And it also gives you meaning of when something occurs when something happens.

00:04:02--> 00:04:23

So he is the one who is holding the sky up from falling down on the earth. That when you see the sky when you see the clouds up in the sky, when you see the stars up in the sky. There's some system that Allah subhanaw taala has placed that despite the fact that anything that you put mid air, it's going to fall towards the Earth. The clouds don't fall, right.

00:04:24--> 00:04:42

Similarly, the stars they don't fall onto the earth, the sun does not fall into the earth, the moon does not fallen to the earth, despite the fact that there is gravity. Still, a loss of panel data has played such a system that the ceiling that the roof that is above us, when we walk beneath it we feel safe and secure.

00:04:43--> 00:04:47

And dakara ellaby isn't any except by his permission.

00:04:48--> 00:04:57

And when will that be on the day of judgment? Yamanaka is summer. On that day what's going to happen the sky is going to be rolled up

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

in a

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

Wha ha Indeed Allah be nasty with all people, whether believers or not with all people, Allah soprano Darla is not an orphan. Surely one who is most affectionate and Rahim and most merciful

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

are offers from the Ruth address, but ah Hamza

00:05:18--> 00:05:49

and what for his compassion, affection, kindness, and Rahim Rama, mercy. So Allah is so affectionate, he is so kind and so merciful towards people. This is why he has made all of this for the benefit of human beings. This is why he has objected the earth, and he has also subjected the sea for the benefit of human beings. And it's out of his mercy and compassion, that he holds the sky up and does not let it fall down on people.

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

This ayah What does it indicate

00:05:54--> 00:05:59

the mercy of Allah, as well as the might and power of Allah,

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

that he is the one who has made everything in the heavens and the earth. And he is the one who has made everything in the earth subservient to who human beings. He is the one who has created everything for the benefit of human beings.

00:06:14--> 00:06:28

So that human beings can thrive on the earth. They're the ones who can do whatever they wish on there. They have the freedom, they have the choice, they have the ability, because if you compare the human being with the other creatures,

00:06:29--> 00:06:47

the other creatures either, if they have too much power, if they have the ability, they don't have the brain. Like for example, if a cheetah can run very fast, does he have the brain like that of a human being? No. Yes, a human being cannot run as fast as a cheetah. However, the human being has a brain.

00:06:49--> 00:06:57

Similarly, if you look at it, and they're very smart creatures extremely smart. However, it's their size that makes them so vulnerable.

00:06:58--> 00:07:05

So compared to all creatures, human being is the one on whom Allah has showed immense favorite.

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

Immense favor.

00:07:09--> 00:07:11

Why? Because Allah is oof and he is

00:07:14--> 00:07:30

inserted ibaka is number 29. We learn who led Haleakala chromaffin, Obi Jumeirah, it is he who has created for you all of that which is on the air. Everything that is on the earth has been created for whose benefit human beings

00:07:32--> 00:08:01

in Serato jatiya is number 13, we learned was Sahaja Lacan math is somewhere it was mFl, early jamir men who, and he is subjected to you, whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is on the earth, all from him. So it's not just that whatever is on the earth is objective for human beings, but it's also whatever is in the heavens, whatever is in the skies, everything is functioning in order to benefit human beings. And he has also subjected the See,

00:08:02--> 00:08:18

he has also subjected the water for the human beings. insult yacine is number 41 and 42 we learn what I have to learn him and Herman Rita home filfil kill machine wahala Cannella who may miss lee mayorkun

00:08:19--> 00:08:27

Anderson assign for them is that we carry their forefathers in a laden ship. And we created for them from the likes of it that which they right.

00:08:29--> 00:09:01

So from a very early era, we see from the time of New Zealand there have been ships that have been flowing across the seas benefiting people so that they can travel from one place to the other. And finally in this is also mentioned that he is the one who is holding the sky from falling onto the earth. We don't until utsava is number nine Flm euro lm a banner ad and warmer Hall phenomena summer he will up in a shot Nassif by him will over our newsletter I lay him kiss FM in a summer.

00:09:03--> 00:09:15

Do they not look at what is before them and what is behind them of the heaven and the earth. If we should will we could cause the earth to swallow them or we could let fall upon them fragments from the sky.

00:09:17--> 00:09:48

So this could have happened. But who is protecting human beings a loss of paradise. If you look at it within the earth, inside the earth, in outer space, there are so many things that are going on one accident, one thing goes haywire. And that's it. The entire human race will be wiped out entire human race. We have seen how the slightest movement within the plates of the earth just one earthquake how much of a disaster it can cause how much disaster

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

to it. Imagine if part of the sky or what is in the sky would fall down upon the earth would human beings be able to survive? None at all. So it's out

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

of great mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that he has not only provided us with everything, but he is also protecting us, he is also preserving us.

00:10:11--> 00:10:36

And so to me known is number 17. We learn what are the Holocron fo pacom sobre, todo fo omegaco neronian hulka, Filene, and we have created above us seven layered heavens. And never have we been of our creation, unaware that yes, there are seven heavens over there. But below, there are human beings and we're not unaware of them. We're not heedless towards them. We are protecting them, we are preserving them.

00:10:38--> 00:10:44

And in total MBI 32 we have learned earlier, that was your summer supplement, my food in

00:10:46--> 00:10:51

the sky has been created as a protected ceiling that it is protected from falling down.

00:10:53--> 00:11:10

Just think about it. If you ever walk under a ceiling that is about to collapse. You know, sometimes you're walking through and you see a ceiling tile. Because it's been raining, there's so much water, it's about to fall down. how scary it is just standing underneath, just walking by from underneath even.

00:11:11--> 00:11:30

I remember once it was raining very heavily over here. And somewhere in the building, there was a ceiling tile which was drenched with water literally. And I remember a piece of it had fallen down from the middle. And I was terrified. I was like if I move from here, if I go from here, a lower limb what might happen? What if this whole tile collapses? What if the entire tile comes down?

00:11:31--> 00:11:52

So just imagine we walk under the blue sky, huge clouds, heavy clouds go from above us. But still we have this feeling of security, that we are safe here. Yes, it's a huge ceiling up above us. But we never feel threatened for even a moment that something from above there could fall down upon us destroying us.

00:11:54--> 00:12:00

So this is a great mercy of Allah. This is a huge favor of Allah soprano upon us.

00:12:02--> 00:12:10

So we see that in this ayah, Allah subhanaw taala tells us that he has made the best arrangements for human beings on this earth,

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

the best arrangements

00:12:13--> 00:12:27

that he has facilitated everything for us. So that we can do whatever we want. There are security, there is protection, there is provision, there is freedom, there are resources, there is ability.

00:12:28--> 00:12:32

He has given us everything so we can do whatever we want.

00:12:33--> 00:12:52

And what is our duty? What has he obligated us with? That we should thank him that we should worship Him. And why should we not worship and when he has provided us everything that we could ever desire will come mean Colima, ultimo and he has given you everything that you could ask for.

00:12:54--> 00:13:02

So when his favours are so huge, when his favorites are countless when there's so many, it is our duty, that we should be grateful to him.

00:13:03--> 00:13:06

It is our duty that we should worship Him.

00:13:07--> 00:13:26

Just think about it. If someone has been shown great favors by their parents, like you know how some parents are very caring towards their children. They will pay for their tuition in university, they will buy them a car, they will cover their expenses, they will cover their gas, they will cover everything. And what do they want from children?

00:13:27--> 00:13:39

Just be good towards us. Just smile at us. Don't show me this attitude. Don't show me this anger. And if that child shows anger, if that child does not even come and show his face to the parents, how ungrateful of him.

00:13:40--> 00:13:53

So imagine the favors that parents have done to a child? Yes, there are many. But they're nothing compared to the favors that Allah subhanaw taala has shown towards each and every single one of us, every single one of us.

00:13:55--> 00:14:10

So it's our obligation, that we thank him, that we use these blessings to please Him to do that with which he will be happy. Not that we use these blessings day and night only to upset him, only to make him more angry with us

00:14:12--> 00:14:26

or who will levy and he is the one who are here come He gave you life He is the one who created you. You were nothing unknown you had no existence, nobody, no name nothing whatsoever, but he is the one who created you.

00:14:27--> 00:14:40

So my you me to come and then he will cause you that when after your life has come to an end. And then somehow you hiccup and then again he will give you life when on the day of judgment

00:14:42--> 00:14:54

in the insane but despite all of that the human being he is like a fool surely one who is extremely ungrateful. One who is very, very ungrateful.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

Notice the word is the food for all mobula soccer for

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

Xu one who is constantly ungrateful, repeatedly ungrateful.

00:15:06--> 00:15:14

And as we learned earlier, that piano towards anyone is bad however Fianna towards Allah subhanaw taala is worse.

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

Similarly, in gratitude towards a human being Yes, it's bad, however, in gratitude to a loss of data is worse, it's extreme. This is why in incentive laka for why careful

00:15:28--> 00:15:38

because when the favors of Allah are so many, when the favors of Allah are so many there countless, therefore in gratitude shown to him is also extreme.

00:15:40--> 00:15:50

We learned insulted belcarra is number 28. That caverta una bella Hi, how can you disbelieve in Allah will continue on Latin for a hair come when you were dead and he gave you life?

00:15:52--> 00:15:59

Just imagine you were dead and he gave you life. So how can you deny him? How can you be ungrateful to him?

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

If someone has saved your life, if someone has saved your life in the sense that perhaps a person was in a very huge car accident and the person came right on time taking them out of the car, what do you say? They save my life?

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

how thankful are you to that person? how thankful Are you

00:16:20--> 00:16:34

similarly for doctor has done a treatment on a patient and it's been very successful. The patient is ever grateful to the doctor that that hospital people will give huge donations to those hospitals. Why? Because they have received so much benefit.

00:16:35--> 00:16:41

So if someone has saved your life, you feel obligated to show gratitude to them.

00:16:43--> 00:17:06

Imagine a lot has created us He is the one who gave us life. If he did not give us life we would not be alive. We would not know anything we would not experience anything. We would not have anything. Allah is the one who gave us life. So how can you deny him? Okay for that for una bella he will continue I'm waiting for a haircut.

00:17:08--> 00:17:11

And so may you meet the consumer your hair come sooner or later.

00:17:13--> 00:17:35

So Allah is the one who has given us everything. He is the one who has objected the heavens and the earth for us. So what is our obligation that we should show gratitude to him? We should not be ungrateful to him. And we should use these things in order to please Him in order to thank him in order to do that with which he will be happy with.

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

Luckily omitted for every nation, for every oma the word oma has you know has several meanings. Sometimes it gives a meaning of nation. Sometimes it gives meaning of religion. Sometimes it also gives a meaning of leader.

00:17:54--> 00:17:59

Like we learned that in the Ibrahima kana, oma and also might give the meaning of

00:18:00--> 00:18:03

one more meeting time period.

00:18:04--> 00:18:05

So four meanings of oma

00:18:06--> 00:18:10

over here liquidly Omar, Omar gives the meaning of nation.

00:18:11--> 00:18:18

Meaning for every nation before the nation of prophets that alone isn't including the oma of Muhammad Salam isn't.

00:18:19--> 00:18:30

So any oma that came and what is an oma? What is a nation? What is a community of people? How are they connected with one another? What is it that connects them together?

00:18:32--> 00:18:38

It's their religion, how that they are the followers off a particular messenger of the same messenger.

00:18:40--> 00:18:49

So for example, musar escena, his Ahmed Wazoo, but he is slightly why because they were the followers of Messiah center.

00:18:50--> 00:18:50

Right.

00:18:52--> 00:18:55

So similarly, the Omar have resigned isn't it?

00:18:57--> 00:19:03

So luckily Martin for every Omar to whom a prophet to whom a messenger was sent

00:19:04--> 00:19:14

jalna we made meaning we appointed man second, a ritual, a religious right away of worship sacred law.

00:19:16--> 00:19:27

What does the word Mansard mean? We have done this word earlier many times. It's basically used for a way of worship. It's used for ritual, religious ceremony.

00:19:28--> 00:19:35

And the word is particularly used for those rituals that are pertaining to Hajj

00:19:36--> 00:19:44

and within the rituals of Hajj even specifically, this word is used for the behalf for slaughter for sacrifice.

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

So Nikolay Ahmed and Joel Nam and satin over here, man sec, gives the meaning of law, sacred law, rituals, ways of worship, and in particular also slaughter that

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

Every nation was obligated to offer sacrifice for who lost.

00:20:07--> 00:20:15

And we see this even in the oma of Adam La Silla, the first oma because his two sons, what did they do?

00:20:17--> 00:20:19

They offered sacrifice for a loss. And

00:20:20--> 00:20:45

it is said that one of them he had slaughtered an animal whose sacrifice was accepted and the other one had offered some crop and that was not accepted. So luckily Ahmed and Jana man second home NASA crew, they are the ones who performed it. NASA who is actually NASA Kona plural of the word nesic and nastic. Is isn't fair.

00:20:47--> 00:21:12

So who is nastic? One who performs the no sock, one who performs the ritual, one who observes the act of worship, one who offer sacrifice. So for every nation, was a sacred law. Every nation was obligated to offer sacrifice to Allah soprano, Darla and home NASA guru, they were to worship Allah subhanaw taala. According to it,

00:21:13--> 00:21:25

they were to worship Allah subhanaw taala according to the month suck, that they were taught. What does it show to us that every nation was taught how to worship Allah subhanaw taala

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

every nation

00:21:28--> 00:21:54

and remember that the main religion that was brought by all the messengers was the same, and which one is that the religion of Islam meaning all the messengers thought, though hate, their leader was the same, the belief was the same. However, the practices they varied, the practices they varied. So for example, the practices that were given to the owner of massage salon are different from the practices that have been given to us, isn't it?

00:21:55--> 00:22:13

So whom NASA co who they are to perform it, meaning they were to perform the rituals that they were given. They weren't allowed to invent their own ways. Every oma was commanded as to what they should do. And they were obligated to observe only that,

00:22:15--> 00:22:24

fella you as your own nega. So let them not contend with you let them not dispute with you, Phil Emery concerning the matter which matter,

00:22:25--> 00:22:33

the matter of sacred law, the matter of performing rituals, the matter of offering sacrifice,

00:22:34--> 00:23:00

and you know, as your own nikka is from the root letters noon, they are NASA. What does NASA literally mean to pull something, and then Vanessa is to build something to one another. So it's like a tug of war. So Vanessa is what dispute and argument a fight in which both parties are pulling the Hulk towards themselves, they're claiming themselves to be truthful, to be the ones on that which is right.

00:23:01--> 00:23:21

So fillet Yun as your own NACA film, now, who does they refer to? That they should not argue with you concerning the matter of religion. Their refers to the followers of other religions, or the people who are still observing their religion brought by previous messengers.

00:23:23--> 00:23:29

So for example, the hood than a solder, they should not argue with you concerning the matter of religion.

00:23:30--> 00:23:43

And the command is being given to who to the followers of other religions. However, indirectly, this is a command being given to who to us, that we should not dispute with them concerning the matters of religion.

00:23:45--> 00:24:05

What does it mean by this, that don't dispute with them concerning the ways of worship? You see, every oma as a last resort, as mentioned over here, was given their own way of worship. Now what happens? When you tell people that we believe in a blind human incident, we will even add a religion and we believe in musalla

00:24:06--> 00:24:12

we believe that the Torah was sent we believe that the NGO was sent. We believe in all the prophets of Allah.

00:24:13--> 00:24:18

People may question you, then how come? Your ways of worship are different?

00:24:20--> 00:24:31

If you claim to be believers of Moosa, if you claim to be believers in a certain center, then how come your ways of worship are different from the followers of Messiah Center and the followers of priests our listener?

00:24:32--> 00:24:37

And this objection was also raised at the time of the prophets oral autism.

00:24:38--> 00:24:53

Where the Jews they asked him, that if you claim to be believer in Messiah listen and then how come your ways of worship your practices are slightly different than ours? In some cases, slightly different in other cases, extremely different very, very different.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

Like for example, if you just compare the dietary laws, the restrictions that we have been given

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

are more lenient compared to the restrictions that were imposed on Who? The Jews aren't there. So they're different. Similarly, when it comes to the way of worship, praying the Salah, it's different, isn't it? So they do pray, the Jews do pray, the Muslims also pray, however, the method is different. The Times are different, the words are different, there is a huge difference.

00:25:26--> 00:25:52

Similarly, when it comes to the Qibla, the Jews, they were following, they were facing the beta blockers and the Muslims. Eventually they faced what the Kaaba. So these differences are there. So Allah subhanaw taala tells us over here, that when this objection is raised, do not argue with them over this matter. Why? Because every oma was given their own way of worship.

00:25:53--> 00:26:01

The Jews, they were given their own way of worship, and now the oma of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has been given its own way of worship.

00:26:02--> 00:26:17

So these differences are there. And they are so because Allah subhanaw taala kept them. And remember that Allah is the lawmaker. He can give whatever laws to whichever people, it's up to him. He is the lawmaker.

00:26:18--> 00:26:24

So he legislated different laws. And there is a great wisdom behind that. What's that wisdom,

00:26:25--> 00:26:30

that the circumstances at that time were different compared to the circumstances that people are in today.

00:26:31--> 00:27:17

If you look at it, the time before Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was completely different. And after Mohammed, Salah, Alanis and the Times have changed the way that people live, that way has changed before people were isolated. People were living in their own areas in their own countries. But after Islam came, and the Muslim Empire it spread from Arabia abroad, all the way almost to Europe, Spain was also included. So with that, the world became like a global community. So you can see that after the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the circumstances that are on the earth have drastically changed. And before they were completely different, therefore there's a huge difference between the

00:27:17--> 00:27:24

commands that were given to previous nations, compared to the commands that are given to the nation of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.

00:27:25--> 00:27:50

And there are many other wisdoms as well. So Allah has got this difference. He is a lawmaker, it's up to him. And he gave different laws to different nations. And we are not to argue about it. If people do raise his objection that you claim to be believers in all of these prophets, that how come your ways are different? What's the answer? A lot of different laws to them, he has given different laws to us.

00:27:51--> 00:27:58

Secondly, remember that this is also for a test. This is also for a test, what is that test?

00:27:59--> 00:28:04

That in the religion, there are differences.

00:28:06--> 00:28:13

So for example, in the oma of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and the oma of musasa, the laws that were given to them, there are different,

00:28:15--> 00:28:27

but in this difference is also a test that what do people do? Do they get stuck in these differences? Or do they go above them? And see the truth and accept it?

00:28:29--> 00:28:42

Do they just get stuck in these differences? Or do they focus on the higher purpose? That does a person just judge the truth by saying that, oh, how different is it from what I am doing? Or does he judge the truth by what it is?

00:28:44--> 00:29:22

Like, for example, if you look at it, even within the religion of Islam, between the various modalities, aren't there differences? Right? There are differences. If you look at it, even between the Sunni Muslims are so many different schools of thought. One person says, When you pray slap with your hands here, the other says, Put your hands there. One says, you know, this is why our job the other says, No, it's not. Why did this is Mr. Howe. So in all of these differences, what happens? Some people, they get stuck in these differences and others, they get past them, they get above them. Some people develop hatred for one another based on these differences, or she thinks that

00:29:22--> 00:30:00

wearing niqab is YG. Therefore, I'm not going to listen to her. I'm going to stay away from her. Okay, she says that niqab is Mr. Javier, she's my friend. So you see, sometimes we choose our friends. We choose our company based on what the slight differences that yes, she thinks the way I think. And she doesn't think the way I think therefore I like her and I don't like is this what our religion teaches us? No, there are differences and if you look at it, these differences are not that major. They're very minute. They're very slight and they don't make a big deal at all. It's not worth fighting.

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

Over. So it's a huge desert. What do we do? Do we remember the purpose of this religion? Or do we just get stuck in these differences?

00:30:09--> 00:30:17

And also, if you look at it, these differences, Allah subhanaw, taala, has kept within the various nations. Why? To distinguish one oma from the other?

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

Because think about it, if the law that was given to Mohammed salada, was exactly the same as a law that was given to the people of musasa. Exactly the same no difference whatsoever. Not even in the method of prayer, not even in dietary laws, exactly the same. Then if someone was Jewish, and then they became Muslim, how would you know? How would you know they're praying the same way? Right? They are eating in the same way. They're facing the same Qibla? It's exactly the same. So how would you know that a person has really become Muslim? Because the man is actually in the heart, isn't it so

00:30:58--> 00:31:11

you cannot check the heart. You only check the amount of a person by his outward actions. If his outward actions are the same, they're not different at all. So how will you know if this person has really become Muslim or not?

00:31:12--> 00:31:15

So it is to distinguish one oma from the other.

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

Whether it are bigger and also invite people to do your Lord, meeting or Prophet sallallahu Sallam keep inviting people to the worship of Allah subhanaw taala only.

00:31:32--> 00:31:40

And remember that in like Allah, Allah who the mystery that indeed you are surely upon the correct guidance, the straight guidance.

00:31:42--> 00:31:46

So what do we see over here, that the main thing is to connect people with almost

00:31:48--> 00:31:53

to invite them to Allah, to invite them to the worship of Allah alone.

00:31:54--> 00:32:14

But when people get caught up with arguments, when they get caught up with differences, then what happens? they overlook what is more important. So what is more important? discussing the differences and arguing about them or calling people to Allah? calling people to Allah is more important that is the main focus.

00:32:15--> 00:32:23

For example, if you look at it the majority of the people who become serious about the religion who become serious about the deen what happens to them?

00:32:24--> 00:32:53

They get stuck in matters such as so is this Mr. Is this why is this well? Is it this is it that they learn the evidences, they learn how one group refutes the other one argument refutes the other. This is all that they're concerned about. This is what their time goes in to. This is what their mind goes into. This is what their energy goes into. This is all that they're studying about. And less time and effort is dedicated to calling people to the worship of Allah.

00:32:54--> 00:33:14

Think about it. majority of Muslims when they become serious about learning the deen What are they concerned about? learning this fic learning that field learning about this opinion, their opinion? This is what they're concerned about. Hardly ever do you see someone learning the deen so they can do dharwad they can call other people to the religion of Allah.

00:33:15--> 00:34:00

So the main focus is what whether in Arabic, don't get stuck in these differences. Don't get stuck in these arguments get past these arguments. Now it does not mean that we are not encouraged to learn more about our religion. To learn more about proofs and evidences to increase our knowledge. No, that is necessary. However, that is not the main goal. That is not the main focus, what's the main focus? Learn so that you can invite people not learn so that you can refute? Remember, learn that you can invite not learn to you can refute there's a huge difference. Because unfortunately, those people who become serious about learning their religion, their focus becomes refuting one

00:34:00--> 00:34:10

group after the other refuting one scholar refuting one opinion after the other. This is not the correct way. The correct way is that you learn and you pass on you deliver.

00:34:12--> 00:34:26

that we see in the previous ayat we learned as well, that Allah is the guide of those people who believe and those people who believe when they learn more about the Quran, Allah hoopoe, their hearts humble before.

00:34:28--> 00:34:36

So when a person refers to the Quran, when a person goes back to the origin, then that is what humbles his heart.

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

And if a person gets stuck in this opinion, that opinion this difference that difference in what happens, this kind of knowledge increases a person's arrogance. Because unfortunately, this is something that is very sad and very common. People who increase in their knowledge, they increase in their arrogance. They increase in their in refuting other people and looking down on other people.

00:35:00--> 00:35:14

This is not the correct way. The knowledgeable one is one who becomes humble, the one who has cobalt who humbled before the other. Yes, he knows a lot, but that knowledge will translate into his actions.

00:35:15--> 00:35:28

So, we are being clearly told over here that go fast these differences rise above them, focus on the main thing, whether it be call people to your Lord.

00:35:29--> 00:35:43

And we see that many times it happens that, for example, if a group of people are sitting together, people will discuss about the differences between the ways of performing the Salah, but you will hardly ever find people encouraging others to praise

00:35:44--> 00:35:57

isn't it, you will find people talking more about differences, then talking about calling people to praise Allah. This is extremely sad weather in Arabic.

00:35:58--> 00:36:32

And before that don't get lost in these arguments. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam installed in neck Allah Allah who there must have been, indeed you are surely upon the correct guidance. Meaning the religion that you have brought is the correct religion. And you are obligated to observe that you're obligated to follow that. And with the coming of this religion, all of the previous ones are abrogated. All of the previous laws are aggregated, what are you obligated to follow? The lot that has been given to you.

00:36:33--> 00:36:42

So we see that in order for a person to be successful, in order for a person to be on the straight path, he must follow the Sharia of the prophets otherwise,

00:36:43--> 00:36:52

we learned in some of the shorter if 50 to one in Nicoletta de la serata was the pain and indeed Oh Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam you guide to a straight path.

00:36:54--> 00:36:56

You guide people to which way the straight way

00:36:58--> 00:37:11

instead of saying I want to for what do we learn? He has seen welcome Anand Hakeem in academia and more serene, Allah, Seraphin moussaka talking. So in Nicola arella, who then was talking

00:37:13--> 00:37:21

in Surah, Menon is 73. Also, we learn what in Nicoletta the room illustrata was the thing that indeed you invite people to a straightaway.

00:37:23--> 00:37:27

So the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is the right way, that is the correct way.

00:37:29--> 00:37:48

If you look at it, the Sahaba, even they had differences. When it comes to fake differences are there when it comes to practicing the religion, differences are there. But the Sahaba they rose above those differences. And their focus was what deliver this religion to people, whether in Arabic,

00:37:49--> 00:38:01

and there's so many incidents in which we find this a habit different from one another. Like, for example, that incident in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told a group of companions that you must arrive here by us or you must come and pray us are here.

00:38:02--> 00:38:14

So what happened? They were getting late. So some companions said that we should pray I said before leaving before getting there. But others said that no, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us that we have to go and pray us over there.

00:38:15--> 00:38:18

So even if the time has gone, we have to go and pray over there.

00:38:19--> 00:39:01

So we see that difference was there. Did they fight with one another? Did they say oh, this group of Sahaba is refuted? Did they do that? No. Did they do the fear of one another? Did they say that you are cafard. And we are the ones on the right way? No way. This was not their way, their way of humility. Their way was of agreeing to disagree. agreeing to disagree that yes, you differ from me fine. But I am still your brother, I will still pray next to you, I will still pray behind you. This was their way of unity. And when people are united like this, only then they can do something together. Because when the focus of the people becomes cutting one another off, then they cannot do

00:39:01--> 00:39:02

anything together.

00:39:03--> 00:39:30

Think about it. If in your own family. You know if people are coming over to your house and a group of sisters they get together to cook something. Each one is focused on highlighting herself and showing other people as bad. And for example, one is making the yogurt The other is making the food so she wants to make her food look good. So she goes and does something to her yogurt. She goes and does something to the salad of one person. Now at the end of the day, when the guests will come will they be disappointed?

00:39:31--> 00:39:36

Of course they will be Yes, perhaps your dish is the best one but everything else is ruined,

00:39:38--> 00:39:38

isn't it?

00:39:39--> 00:39:58

Will you be able to do something then will you be able to benefit people? Not at all. In fact, you are humiliating yourself. You're humiliating yourself. You're turning people off from you. They will not want to come to your house again. Because you're busy cutting the roots of one another

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

So when people get stuck in differences, what happens? They become weak, they cannot focus on the main goal. And when they rise above differences, then they can achieve more.

00:40:12--> 00:40:59

Because remember that even two people, they cannot think the same way. It's not possible. Allah subhanaw taala has created every human being unique in his appearance, and also in his nature, every human being is unique is different from the other. So don't impose your way of thinking on others. don't impose your belief over others, you can tell them, you can discuss it with them, you can try to convince them if you believe that it's the correct one. It's very beneficial. However, at the end of the day, if they don't want to listen, don't force them. Don't force them because if you force them, it's going to create rifts between you. It's going to create a distance between you and then

00:40:59--> 00:41:06

you will not be able to do anything together. So whether it Arabic in Naga, la Allah, Who there must

00:41:08--> 00:41:17

be confident that this religion that we are on this is the right way if somebody does not accept it's their choice and allows the judge we have done our part
