00:00:02--> 00:00:05

Are we let him initiate long overdue Miss malaria over him.

00:00:06--> 00:00:09

Lesson number 268. So it's a big lot.

00:00:11--> 00:00:26

Yeah, a yohannes all mankind or people, all people are being addressed. This is a general address in the Hello kanakam. Indeed, we have created you menza current ones, from a male and a female.

00:00:27--> 00:01:16

Meaning, we have created you from the same origin, from the same couple from the same source, one male and one female. And who are they? Adam and his wife, however, therefore, since all of you are from the same origin, none of you have superiority over the other, do you do mess up due to lineage? Because you think about it every lineage? Where does it go back to? Where does it begin from Adam and Hawa? So when the source of everyone is the same, what does it mean? Everyone is also equal in terms of lineage. Everyone is equal in terms of being human, in a holla, canal, comienza current owner and this also shows to us that men's origin is what, men not something else.

00:01:18--> 00:01:50

What's your Alarcon and we have made you into Sherborne into nations? What are the ILA and tribes? Why, later on, so that you can recognize one another? Not so that you think that one is better than the other? And you feel proud compared to others? Why? Because you think that just because you belong to a particular nation, or you belong to a particular tribe, you're better than them? No, the purpose of Shubin, Kava is just not the

00:01:51--> 00:02:30

shrub is a plural F sharp and sharp is used for a race a nation of people. And sharp is the broadest category of lineage. It is the broadest category of lineage. Sharp literally is generally a lien. But is it generally, it's used for a huge group of people, a huge group of people. And from this come what there is a subdivision of tribes. So tribes before that is what sharp, shareable works, what is the

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

head. So Charlotte Russe is the top of the head.

00:02:36--> 00:02:40

It's the top of the skull, where all the parts of the head meet.

00:02:41--> 00:02:51

So what is the sharp the head, the source of all the branches? What is it the head, the source of all the branches?

00:02:52--> 00:03:13

and sharp, it gives us two meanings. One is if the rock and the other is HTML, what does it mean division, and HTML? When people are together? So basically, it's used for a huge group of people whose origin is the same. They're different, but yet they are the same. You understand?

00:03:14--> 00:03:34

Like, for example, if you think about the Arab nation, or the different different types of Arabs, you they belong to different tribes? Do they belong to different families? Do they belong to different clans and sub clans? Yes. But despite these differences, are they the same? They are the same? This is what Charles

00:03:35--> 00:03:42

so what's your anakim shirt Ruben we have made you into nations wakaba alphabet is the plural of babila

00:03:43--> 00:03:50

and babila is used for a tribe and they are smaller than shuru

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

pobail are smaller than shuru.

00:03:54--> 00:03:57

You see, if you look at a family tree,

00:03:59--> 00:04:09

like for example, you above your who, your parents above them or who grandparents, and then you go higher, higher, higher, higher higher, isn't it?

00:04:11--> 00:05:00

Similarly, when you go higher, from the nuclear family to the extended family, do the clan, do the tribe do the nation. So there are different categories of NASA different categories of lineage. There's a very broad category, then slightly narrowed and slightly narrow, narrow, narrow, narrow until it comes down to just your nuclear family. You understand? So at the top is sharp, and sharp is what the head it's the source of all the branches. Then after sharp is for Bella Bella. It is smaller than the sharp and mobility are the bones of the skull that are joined with each other. So you have sharp the top of the head. The top of

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

This girl babila the side of the head the bones of the head. Then after Kabila comes Mr. imeem, Alif Rama Buta and remodel, what is this tribal district and it's literally is the chest so, you go down what is it literally just

00:05:17--> 00:05:21

then after a moto is the button, what is the button stomach.

00:05:22--> 00:06:12

So this is used for tribal sub districts or smaller category than remodel after button is the fair hot than which is a subtribe smaller category than that and that literally is the tie. After fun is the fuss Lila, what is it for Selena? The clan that includes one sibling, spouse children, parents cousins. So in other words, extended family will facilitate allottee to we and what is the phocoena literally it means shin and then after the first letter comes there are Sheila or Sheila is from Mashallah, Mashallah which is to live together. So it is a family or the people that one lives closely with. So for instance, parents and siblings or for instance, spouse and children.

00:06:13--> 00:06:40

Now, when you look at the lineage of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, his Ashura was Arbus. Okay, we're going upwards. His or Sheila was our best. His felida was Hashem his father was abouna button was who say, Mr. Nawaz Quraysh babila was Kenan and sharp was hoceima. You can find this in Cielo books as well.

00:06:42--> 00:06:53

So what's your anacron? Sure, obon, waka Illa we have made you into nations and tribes why litter are awful, so that you can recognize one another

00:06:54--> 00:07:14

they're out of the out of and what is the out have to know each other to recognize one another. So, the reason behind this division this categorization is so that you may acquire knowledge of the customs of one another the ways of one another, not that you boast to each other.

00:07:15--> 00:07:18

So, this categorization is based on what

00:07:19--> 00:07:36

on what the out of this is according to help depending on when a person came to the dunya when he was born. And where just because a person was born into a particular family does not mean he is better than another family.

00:07:37--> 00:07:43

Another way we can understand the word out of over here is that you recognize each other through NASA.

00:07:44--> 00:08:37

For instance, you come across a person who is he okay, this person is my aunt, why? Because she is my father's sister, okay, you come across another person, this person is my distant relative Why? Because her grandfather or her great grandfather was also my great grandfather, you understand? Similarly, you come across another person, they look a lot like you like this person is from the same race as my Why? Because we come back from the same country, we come back from the same people. So the reason behind this division into Ruben Oba is so that people can recognize each other. Otherwise, how would a person bond with the other? How would a person recognize the other

00:08:38--> 00:09:22

children recognize people as their parents, their aunts, their uncles, their cousins? If there was no relationship like this between people, then would people care for one another? Would they know? Like, for example, inanimate things, you put them next to one another, they have no idea. There's no bonding between the two. Similarly, animals even they have no idea that this is my distant cousin. This is my uncle isn't at all, which is why even in test happens in animals, but not in human beings. Why? Because Allah has divided people according to what shroob and Oba not because one is better than the other, but simply for the purpose of recognition that people can relate with each

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

other.

00:09:24--> 00:09:42

In the economical indeed the most honorable of you are in the law he in the sight of Allah is who at Qualcomm, the most pious of you, the most God fearing of you at all. This is a fairly definitely what does it mean by at par, one with most awkward.

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

So the noblest person in the sight of Allah is who the person with the most taqwa The greater the taqwa The greater the piety. The higher the level of the core, the greater his rank in the sight of Allah and in the vihara even further

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Indeed Allah is Knowing and he's fully aware.

00:10:04--> 00:10:08

So you don't need to tell him about how much decoy you have. Allah knows you already.

00:10:09--> 00:10:11

What do we learn in this ayah?

00:10:12--> 00:10:22

That the inability of a person in the sight of Allah is not based on his family. It's not based on his color. It's not based on his race or his nation. But what is it based on?

00:10:23--> 00:10:31

moral quality DACA it's not by birth, it's not by nationality. It's not by race, but rather it is by DACA.

00:10:32--> 00:11:15

Because unfortunately, people think that just because a person has a passport of a certain color, or he has a particular skin color, he is better than the other. No, this is not the case. One has passport from one country, the other has citizenship of another country. Just because one has one passport doesn't mean he's better than others. No. This is just for the purpose of recognition. In reality, who is greater in the sight of Allah who has honor in the sight of Allah, the One who has more taqwa? The one who is more conscious, the one who is more careful. We learned that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he gave an address at handwritten weather and he said, Oh

00:11:15--> 00:11:56

people, a lot the exalted has removed from you the slogans of Jay Hillier, and it's tradition of honoring forefathers, the people of the time of ignorance, what did they used to do the father, they would come against one another, and boast to each other about their nobility, about their greatness how by saying my forefather was so and so. And my great grandmother did such and such, like those Bedouins had come to Medina. Why? To do the father with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, to show how great and noble they were to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that oh people Allah has removed from you the slogans of Jay Z, and its tradition of honoring forefathers, men are of two types.

00:11:57--> 00:12:04

People are off two types, one who is righteous, fearful of Allah and honorable to Allah.

00:12:06--> 00:12:13

And the other person, he is vicious, fragile, shabby, miserable, and little to Allah.

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

mean he has no value in the sight of Allah.

00:12:17--> 00:12:21

So people are of two types. Those who are the

00:12:22--> 00:12:26

those who have Taqwa and those who are fighters.

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

This is the division of people in the sight of of law.

00:12:31--> 00:12:44

This is how Allah looks at people. This is what Alan wants to see in people, that who is more bias, and who does not care about by it and ends up committing a lot of produce.

00:12:45--> 00:12:59

Because if you think about it, our bodies, our Well, our nationalities, who gave them to us in the first place? Allah subhanaw taala. So there is nothing great if a person has one or he doesn't have, isn't it?

00:13:00--> 00:13:11

Because whatever a person has has been given to him by Allah. This is something that has not been acquired, rather it has been ascribed. So it's not something that a person needs to be proud about.

00:13:13--> 00:13:51

However, what does Allah want to see in US actions, by at the purity of the hearts This is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that in the law, Alejandro illa suamico. Monica, why, because you're sore, you're unwell, who gave them to you? Allah subhanho wa Taala. There is no credit that goes to you with regards to that. But what does Allah look at? either lubicon or maliko? He looks at your hearts and your actions. Because if you do something good, that is worth praising you for and if you do something evil than that is worth blaming you for

00:13:52--> 00:13:57

it but our vessel the guard who said that for dunya. Honor is with wealth.

00:13:58--> 00:14:05

Indonesia, how does a person gain honor, through wealth, but with Allah, how does a person gain honor with the core?

00:14:06--> 00:14:45

So who is more a column? Who is more noble, the one who is more at the one who has more taqwa not because he belongs to a particular family? So what does it show to us? That the responsibility lies on every individual to strive to become more pious to strive to improve in his good deeds? Because we think that just because we are born Muslim, we're perfectly fine. No, even if you're born Muslim, you belong to a family, to a nationality, you have to do something to prove your inability to prove your goodness in the sight of Allah and how will you do that through your good deeds.

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

Just because the prophets are a lot of sin was from the courage. It did not guarantee the rest of the question, isn't it so they had to believe for themselves. They had to do something for themselves. He said to

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

His own uncle who was dying, let's say the Shahada so that I can actually do some shefa. However, he didn't say itself the Prophet sallallahu Sallam cannot do anything.

00:15:10--> 00:15:21

So, the responsibility lies on each and every single individual. And you see, this is very important that we must understand the meaning of a thought, who is more

00:15:22--> 00:15:42

when it comes to dunya, we have certain standards, right? person who works at a better place, makes more money, enjoys more benefits. A person who does not work in that good of a position. What does he enjoy? Less, isn't it?

00:15:43--> 00:15:54

This is with regards to the nazwa seminary when it comes to Deen. There are two people, okay, do people who find the time of Solomon at the time of Salah comes

00:15:55--> 00:16:03

one person he prays the sun and the fault, the other person only gets away with the fault who is more.

00:16:05--> 00:16:18

The one who prays sooner and the right, both got the same opportunity. But who is better in the sight of Allah who became better in the sight of a lot the one who did better, the one who performed better.

00:16:19--> 00:16:39

Do people woke up in the morning, they had 24 hours. One recited the adkar in the morning, prayed the Salawat also did something productive, did something beneficial. The other sleeps in delays is Sala misses the car completely misses one or two prayers, waste his time here there who is more,

00:16:40--> 00:17:14

who is more called them to the first one, isn't it. So remember, if you want to become better in the sight of Allah, you have to become better in your deeds. You have to become better in your thinking. We think if a person has taqwa, then, you know they listen to something very nice and they cry over there. And then they wipe their tears away. This is what the boys know, the choir is about action. The court translates into action, it's such fear, that makes a person do good and that makes the person stay away from wrong.

00:17:15--> 00:17:26

So the more decoy a person has, the more careful he will be in his actions, the more careful you will be in his actions, the better his status will be in the sight of Allah.

00:17:27--> 00:17:52

Why do you think this is mentioned over here? Right after mentioning a flock, because the previous is what is mentioned, marking it other people, insulting them, giving them bad names. Similarly, LIBOR, the justice, what else has mentioned Dylan? When does a person suffer from these problems when he thinks he is better?

00:17:53--> 00:17:55

When he thinks he's better?

00:17:56--> 00:18:16

And when he thinks it's okay, it doesn't make a difference to his status in the sight of Allah when he talks bad about other people? No. The fact is that when a person has bad luck, when a person treats the others with disrespect, then what happens? He falls down in his status before.

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

And when a person is careful with regards to the state of his heart, one with regards to the words that he says, with regard to the things that he looks at that is, when a person becomes careful, conscious, then he becomes better in the sight of Allah, that person has an ability.

00:18:39--> 00:18:51

And if a person gives nobility to himself, thinking that he is the best and thinking that he can back by other people, thinking that he can say whatever he wants to do, then he in fact, has no honor in the sight of Allah.

00:18:52--> 00:18:58

You see, one is that a person thinks himself as very great, and in reality is not that great.

00:18:59--> 00:19:24

And the other is that a person is humble. And he is great in the sight of what is better. The second because in the first situation, a person is in deception. He thinks he is great. This is why he bashes others this is why he talks negatively about them. But in reality is nothing before Allah, no honor, no status, no position, no rank in the sight of Allah.

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

Allah till

00:19:28--> 00:19:36

the veteran say we have believed which Bedouins those who had claimed to become believers.

00:19:37--> 00:19:40

We see that people, they're very proud about their lineage.

00:19:41--> 00:19:53

Allah says, There's nothing to be proud about that. People are very proud about their country but their family and sometimes people are also very proud about the deen that they follow.

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

Which is why they just keep telling other people. I am a Muslim. I am

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

I'm a Muslim proud to be a Muslim.

00:20:03--> 00:20:06

So over here who is being mentioned the one who boasts about his Deen

00:20:08--> 00:20:15

we learned that Allah subhanaw taala, he gives so much honor to his religion. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was in Medina,

00:20:16--> 00:20:36

that not being Muslim was in fact something shameful. Because everyone was becoming Muslim. For eight, an essay, the Haruna, VD, FYI, people were becoming Muslim in groups, groups after groups are becoming Muslim. So if anyone did not embrace Islam, it was like being backward.

00:20:38--> 00:20:40

It was like going against everyone.

00:20:41--> 00:20:49

So there were many people who became Muslim, who professed Eman, just to enjoy the benefits of being Muslim.

00:20:51--> 00:21:05

And when a person thinks like this, that I should become Muslim, just because you know, there are many benefits to being Muslim, then he doesn't believe with his heart. And he doesn't realize the responsibility that comes along

00:21:06--> 00:21:22

with being a Muslim, that when a person is a Muslim, that there's certain things that he has to do, he has to improve his flock, he has to talk properly, isn't it, it's not just a ritual that he has to be concerned about. It says manners other also that he has to be very careful about.

00:21:24--> 00:21:41

So just as sometimes people think that just because they belong to a certain family, or a group, they have nothing to do, they can enjoy the benefits. Similarly, people think that just because they're Muslim, they will be perfectly fine in this dunya. And indeed, they have to do nothing.

00:21:42--> 00:22:02

So in this way, what does the person begin to do this boast about his Islam? So call it arrabal. And the Bedouin Arabs, they say, we have believed which Bedouins are these, it is said that this was in particular, the tribes of asset and hoceima that when they became Muslim, they just kept on saying, amen. Now we have believed.

00:22:03--> 00:22:09

Allah says schools say to them, Listen to me, no, no, you haven't believed. Why your demand is not acceptable, yet.

00:22:10--> 00:22:21

They say that they have believed but Allah says no lamb to me, no. Well, I can but kulu, you should say, a slum now we have surrendered, we have submitted,

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

you understand?

00:22:25--> 00:22:46

They say we have believed, Allah says no, you have not believed in fact, you have only submitted well, am I the holy man who feel for lubicon and Eman has not yet entered into your hearts. So don't say that you have believed because a man has not yet entered your hearts. Only on the outward you have submitted therefore say, Islam.

00:22:48--> 00:22:55

Now Islam, and even when they're mentioned separately on their own, what do they mean? The same thing?

00:22:56--> 00:23:22

A person is a Muslim, we understand that he has a man, a person is a movement, we understand that he's a Muslim, isn't it? So both terms are understood as the same when they're mentioned separately. However, when they're mentioned in the same context, in the same place, and they're used in contrast, then they give different meanings. You understand?

00:23:23--> 00:23:41

back over here? They say, we have believed Allah says no, you have not believed say we have submitted. This means there is a difference between a man and Islam. So what is that difference? Islam and Eman we learned from Heidi's gibreel jabril came in as a professor of medicine and what is email? What did he say to him?

00:23:42--> 00:24:05

He managed to believe in who Allah is books, His angels, his messengers of other day of judgment, so on and so forth. There are pillars of email when he asked him about Islam. Did he explain what Islam was? How differently that Islam is you had the thing what else that you praise Allah, it gives you fast amount of Ramadan and you also do the Hajj if you're able.

00:24:07--> 00:24:10

So he told us about the difference between a man and Islam.

00:24:12--> 00:24:42

So if you think about it, man, what does that relate with? The the heart, belief in Allah belief in the books in the messengers in the angels in the day of judgment in the other. Where is that? It's in the heart, it's to do with the heart. On the other hand actions such as professing your faith, such as praying Salah such as fasting, such as giving the cat that just going for Hajj, what does that relate with, with your jawara with your limbs?

00:24:43--> 00:24:53

So Eman Islam when put in contrast with each other Eman is the heart. The mind is where in the heart and Islam is where on the God.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

So Islam refers to the apparent and Eman is what

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

The battling the hidden.

00:25:02--> 00:25:12

It is said that Islam is it harder and harder it is to show submission. It is to show humility.

00:25:13--> 00:25:18

And it is to outwardly comply with whatever the messenger has brought.

00:25:19--> 00:25:37

So for example, when a person says that he's a Muslim, then he has to show submission, he has to outwardly comply with whatever the messenger came with. So for instance, he has to say he believes in the Quran, he has to pray with the rest of the Muslims. Isn't it so?

00:25:38--> 00:25:49

So over here, when they're told we're lacking kulu Islam now, say that we have submitted What does it mean by this, that say that we're outwardly compliant only?

00:25:50--> 00:26:07

outwardly we are Muslim only? Because yes, they prayed, they gave the car everything. This was only on the outward while I'm a holy man, if you could do become and as of yet, up until now, Eman has not actually entered your heart.

00:26:09--> 00:26:26

What is this show? That where's the man it's in the heart? Isn't. So alumni are the holy man if you could do become Why is this been said? That you only show outward compliance. Why? Because everyone else does. So

00:26:27--> 00:27:14

you pray. Why? Because everyone else praise you. Outwardly listen to the messenger. You say that you believe in the messenger? Because that's what everybody else does. You don't actually have faith in your heart. Because if a person has faith in his heart, then along with outward compliance in his heart, would he have respect for align His messenger? Yes. And will that respect be shown in his actions in the way that he deals with the messenger? Yes. We learned earlier that the Bedouins when they came to Medina, how do they treat the messenger sallallahu Sallam like any ordinary person going outside of his her daily life and saying, Oh, hold your Elena oho charlena not even bothering

00:27:14--> 00:27:21

to knock politely or ask him if he was available. No, just telling him ordering him to come out. What does that show? There was no respect.

00:27:22--> 00:27:35

There was no faith in the heart. Because of there's faith in the heart. If there's a man in the heart, that a person also has love. He also has respect regard for Allah and His messenger.

00:27:36--> 00:27:47

And when he has a man, then he has love for the dean. The Dean is a personal matter. He will prefer these over everything and everyone else.

00:27:48--> 00:28:17

But we see that when there were times of difficulty, what would these Rob do? They would not show up. They would stay in their houses. later on. They would come and say Charlotte now Mr. Luna, Luna, first of Atlanta, this shows that there is no email because of there is a man that a person's heart is attached with who with aligners messenger with what with the dean, he cannot prefer his wealth and children over Allah and is the know, he will give preference to a lioness messenger.

00:28:19--> 00:29:06

Similarly, when a person has a man in his heart, that he also has respect for who for fellow believers, then can he insult them? No. Can he boast in front of them? No. Can he give bad names to them? No. Can he back by them? No. This is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Oh people who have professed belief verbally, but faith has not yet entered your hearts. How did he address the people? All you who have professed faith verbally, but a man has not entered your heart? Do not pry into the affairs of the Muslims. Do not do the Justice do not do the justice. What is it show that a person was a man in his heart? Will he do the justice? Will he know will he do lever? No. Will he

00:29:06--> 00:29:10

insult others behind them or in front of them? No, he cannot do that.

00:29:11--> 00:29:14

So while I may adequately Amen, if you cannot become

00:29:15--> 00:29:23

this shows that majority of the people what is their state of just outward compliance, isn't it?

00:29:24--> 00:29:53

And when a person rectifies the state of his heart when he becomes conscious on the inside, and as a result, he's careful about what he says what he does. And he does whatever he does with respect with Darlene, then that shows that he has a man. Well, am I the holy man if you polu become what entity or la hora Sula who and if you obey Allah and His Messenger, political men are Malik of shape Shea. He will not decrease you of your deeds anything at all.

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

If you obey Allah and His Messenger, what does it mean by this unconditionally?

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

Aveda.

00:30:01--> 00:30:08

Because if you think about it, Islam, submitting on the outward What does that mean? obedience, isn't it,

00:30:09--> 00:30:22

but over here to clear who has been set to clear with regards to what everything unconditionally, not that you choose to do whatever you want and you choose to leave whatever you want, no.

00:30:23--> 00:31:06

And when a person obeys a line His Messenger unconditionally, then what does that show? That he has regard for every command that Allah has given? He has respect for every instruction, that the messenger subtle bonus Adam has given and whatever he will do, he will do it with sincerity, what is loss. So, if you obey a line as messenger in this manner, then lay your let come in early comerciais Allah will not decrease for you in your deeds anything at all, yet it comes from the rotators Hamza lamda editor, which means Knox to reduce something to reduce something and then give it so in other words to give less than you to give less than what the other person deserves.

00:31:07--> 00:31:21

So late come in automatic cache, what does it mean that Allah will not reduce for you the reward that you deserve? For the actions that you have done? In the love of photo Rahim? Indeed, allies Forgiving and Merciful?

00:31:22--> 00:32:09

What does it show that every person does something without if loss is only partially obedient? Then will that be a means of wastage of his deeds? Yes, because what's the condition? What into the ear Allahu wa Sula, who then lay in it come in armonica. But if a person does not obey Allah and His Messenger property the way he should, then what does that mean? Will he get everything that he deserves for his deeds, know, his deeds will be wasted? So we have been learning earlier in these many solos, that how some things are a means of wasting deeds, isn't it? And of those causes, or what are those causes? Or what? not obeying Allah and His Messenger not having regard for what they

00:32:09--> 00:32:17

have said? not obeying with airfloss. So into theor, la hora Sula, who then lay illyricum in America,

00:32:19--> 00:32:20

what can we learn from this ayah?

00:32:21--> 00:32:30

That, if our obedience, that is what is required, being proud of being a Muslim alone is not enough.

00:32:32--> 00:32:41

But many people, what are they satisfied with just the fact that they are Muslim. But we see here that this alone is not sufficient.

00:32:42--> 00:33:11

What a person outwardly manifests his image and his faith, then he has to obey, he has to follow that profession by obedience as well. ITAR is what is required? What many times when people are reminded that people who claim to be Muslim, that this is what the commander of Allah is, with regards to this matter, this is something that you're not supposed to be doing. They get offended, that you think we're not Muslim. You think I'm not a Muslim? Why are you telling me

00:33:12--> 00:33:19

but the fact is that if you are a Muslim, then you cannot contradict the commands of Allah and His messenger. You cannot go against them.

00:33:20--> 00:33:27

Just because you say you're a Muslim is not enough. You have to show it with obedience as well. So this is what is important.

00:33:28--> 00:33:56

Many people, they are Muslim, they're proud to be Muslim simply because they have been born in Muslim families, Muslim households. And they think they have to do nothing to improve their faith. They think they have to do nothing to improve their submission to align His Messenger, or just because they have a Muslim name. Sometimes they pray, yes, their parents did Hajj, they give this a cat, they have to do nothing. No, you have to do something as well. The Eman that is required from us is conscious eema and

00:33:57--> 00:33:59

the one that a person has which are rude.

00:34:01--> 00:34:11

Not that I'm a Muslim, because my family says I'm a Muslim. No, what is necessary is if R and R can not come, except with

00:34:12--> 00:34:36

unconditional obedience. It cannot come except with except with faith. Because think about it. What gives you the courage to do something that nobody in the society is doing? What gives you the courage, hope of reward, fear of punishment. What does that mean faith. So unless and until the person has a man he cannot do if our outward submission alone is not sufficient.
