Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Abdullah Saleh Nabina Muhammad wa ala early, he was happy as mine and now that
we are good to go. Okay, so the first thing is I want to just start by apologizing We've had a few equipment issues over the last couple of days, we've had some electric shore electricity shortages in the masjid, and so on, which has meant that we haven't been able to do the live streams always the way that we would want the Tafseer class did go ahead yesterday, but what happened was, it wasn't able to be broadcast because there was a problem with the equipment. And today also, I think the live stream started and stopped. So if you're looking for the live stream, it's here inshallah we're gonna try and get you on the right stream. You know, you're watching the right class. So we
are continuing with the TFC are also
I've got some questions. Do you know any other names for sort of it? Because we got up to Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen last class. Do you know any names for Sora to Fatiha?
Apart from sort of two fatty How
do you know any names?
Daniel any names? What about use of
Irish you heard of a different name for sorta to Fatiha.
Scott lots of names is called omo Quran
the mother of the Quran Why? Why do you call it omachron? Like in Arabic, why do you call something?
Like doesn't mean mother because I mean the Quran wasn't born the Quran is Allah speech. But what is it? What is the word? If he says it's like the mother of the poor and omachron like maka is called omo Cora, the mother of the cities. The name for another name for maka his own Cora, the mother of all the towns?
Yes, I shall.
It's summarizing nearly close.
Everything goes back to it. So like if you What's your relationship to your mother? Yeah, that you go back that's where you came from. That's your that the starting place like the origin of it all. So that's what the Arabs they use the word home they use sometimes use it for something goes back to the heart of it, the main part of something and the most important part of something they call it the most important part. So it's the most important part of the Quran.
It's the most important surah in the Quran. What's another name for it? How How many IRT certified have did we say last time? Seven. So it's, it's got a name to do with seven. Do you know what that name is? The seven.
The nearly not the seven versus nearly the seven.
Rip repeated versus a seven muthoni. The seven repeated versus Why is it called the repeated verses?
You see so many times you how many times you see sort of fattier everyday if you pray five times a day, just five times a day, no sooner nothing. You just pray five times a day. quickly give me an answer. How many times how many times without working out? Hmm, not more than 1117 work it out fudger twice voer, twice, four times, the whole four times. So even though I was thinking about reading aloud the whole four times, so that makes six. So four times that makes 10
Maghreb makes 13 and Asia 17 times without any sooner or later or anything 17 times you add Witter in there, you got 20 times, you add the sooner February now 22 times you add all of your article price in there, and you have another 12
and it's something like 32 times. So it's a lot of times that you repeat solar.
It's also why we get into the tipsy it's really important to remember that sort of 230 is a conversation between you and Allah.
Now, what do you have to have for a conversation?
you are you doing hand signals, right? What do you have to have for a conversation?
You can't if I just am reciting for example, I'm just reciting. So
From the Quran
mean a law that's, that's not a two way conversation. So what makes so little fat? He had a two way conversation.
What do you think?
Who are you speaking to when you pray?
Who are you speaking to when you pray? Allah agreed. When you pray, you are speaking to Allah. How do you know that Allah hears you?
He has everything okay, but I want to evidence in the prayer when you stand up from Roku or what do you say?
semi Allahu leemon hamidah. Allah hears the one who praises him. Allah, Allah He is here it doesn't mean he it means answers. Allah answers the one who praises him. So Allah, He is what you say. Okay, but that's still not a conversation. That's you asking Allah, Allah give me this or Allah give me this okay Allah He is.
But what makes it
Allah has to say something to you, but you don't hear it. But what does Allah say? When you say Alhamdulillah he Rob bill al Ameen. Allah says hamadani Abdi, my servant has praised me.
My servant has praised me.
Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. Who is this for? Is it for you or for Allah?
is for Allah right? You're praising Allah, why do you start by praising Allah? Why don't you just raise your hands and say, oh, Allah guide me? I know it's a so now I'm gonna say about the Sunnah or not? I'm just asking you generally, why do you think that you don't just say, oh, Allah gave me
an introduction. You want to get your do our close to Allah. So when you want something?
Okay, let me ask you a question aside from Allah subhanaw taala when you want something from your mom and dad and you're not really allowed, I'm gonna ask especially to you because you're expert this. How do you usually get it?
Okay, begging for it. Yeah, that's one thing true. And you beg Allah no doubt.
Be very good for a few minutes. Okay.
No, taking it without knowing that him can from you. That's probably one of the things you do but no. So what you usually do is you start with a sentence like, Mom, you know, how and you get a chance for your Yeah, you get your chance for your request to be answered. Now, it's not like that with Allah. Because Allah is different, Allah is different. But I'm trying to show you why you introduce your daughter, because you want to praise Allah to give a lot of what he deserves. You want to make yourself close to Allah, you want to make your art close to Allah and then ask for what you want. Okay, so you praise Allah and Allah said, my slave has praised me.
Okay, we come to the next IML al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa manual Rahim the Most Merciful the bestow of mercy now we explained these two ladies these two names last time, so we don't need to explain them again. inshallah. We already explained them. So inshallah we don't need to explain them again. Okay. So we'll we said our Rahman is the Most Merciful, the one whose mercy covers everything. Even it covers the non Muslims. How does it cover the non Muslims if they're not even Muslim? How do they even have any mercy from Allah, they're not Muslim in the first place.
Because the only I mean, the only thing that matters is Islam. So Allah didn't give them Islam. So how can we say that that mercy covers them?
First of all the mercy in their lives in general, that they have food to eat, that they have a place to live, that they are healthy, that they are safe. But there's a bigger mercy than that. What's the big mercy? Allah gives them? The biggest mercy?
Not they're not the monitor by the monastery, the Muslim monitor about the Return button, the people who are not Muslim, so they're not going to get gym. Hmm.
Okay, but they don't become Muslim yet.
It's not difficult when you think about it.
Okay, if you were really kind to somebody really kind, and you did everything for them. And they turned around and threw it all back in your face? What would you want to do straightaway?
Yeah, you want to have a go straightaway. You want to get back at them immediately? What does Allah do?
give them time,
at some big mercy, because what they deserve is debt.
Gone. He didn't believe in Allah. God. jahannam straightaway,
no stopping no pause it's instant. But what does Allah give them?
A lot gives them time. And Allah gives them a chance. Allah gives them time. And Allah gives them a chance, a chance to think about Islam, a chance to accept Islam at time.
they disobey Allah and Allah keeps giving them Allah gives them food, and they say bad things about Allah. Allah gives them clothing, they say bad things about Allah. Allah gives them a house they say bad things about Allah. Allah gives them money. They say bad things about a lot but still Allah doesn't punish them until their time has come back from the mercy of Allah COVID everybody. Because to be honest, even Muslims, if you did something bad to Allah, like you didn't do your prayer, or you did something that you shouldn't have done, as a Muslim, what should What should I do? Like what would be the normal thing? punish you? But Allah lexical, Allah forgives you a lot overlooks Allah
gives you a chance Allah gives you another time. This is all from the mercy of Allah, the general mercy. What about mercy of a lot of animals? Because we say mercy covers everything. What is the mercy of a lot of animals?
keeping them alive, okay, good.
giving them their food. Imagine the bird flies out of its nest in the morning. How does that bird have any idea that it's going to get food?
How does he even know where to go in the ground to pick up a worm or to pick up something it's going to eat? Allah?
How does that bird even fly?
What did Allah say? In social milk?
So to milk
the word for burdastyle.
Our lm era era Tyree phoca, whom saw fat in wiaa COVID.
Ma Yun sequana, Illa, Rama to the Look at the birds above them.
And those birds are stretching out their wings and they fly through the sky. No one keeps them in the sky except are among the most merciful allies, the one that keeps them from the sky from falling was the mercy of Allah to the sky and the earth that Allah didn't cause the sky to fall down upon the earth.
Pamela, so much even the mercy that the animal has towards its little one. When you see the animal, unified, okay, you like horses? When you see the man with the fall and how she looks after the fall, takes care of it and protects it. Yeah, that's from the mercy of Allah, you can see it.
But there is a special mercy and Allah doesn't give that mercy to everybody. And that is the meaning of our Rahim The one who chooses who the special mercy goes to.
It doesn't give it to everybody. Is it fair to give it to everybody the same? Is it is that not fair? Everyone should be equal, right? Everybody equal? Let's be fair, everyone equal should know as energy I will muslimeen a Cal majori mean, Malcolm k for the human. Shall we make the Muslims like the criminals? That's not fair. Somebody does bad things to people should we give them
Good things are fair. So Allah in His fairness and wisdom, he doesn't just give that mercy out to everybody. He gives it to some people.
So when you given it by a law, you have to protect it and look after it, because it's a special gift you got from Allah. And that special gift is what you saw.
In this I'm talking about now, Islam. That's the special gift what you think Leisha Jenna is even more special in the hereafter. But we don't know if we're going to get that yet. So let's just talk about what we have. Now what you have to look after is your Islam. Because Allah gave that special gift and if you don't look after it
What did Allah say?
We can replace you
How Men are aka
a people who are not like you, mala mia kuno am Salah.
We're going to replace you with a people and those people are not going to be like you. If you don't look after that gift, and you don't take care of it. Allah is going to take it from you and give it to somebody else.
And that happened to people. So people they walked away from Islam, they left Islam, Allah took that gift from them and said you will not looking after that gift. You are not taking care of that gift. I gave you something special and you didn't care about it.
Gone give it to somebody else
or Romana right? When you hear this IR Rahmani Raheem the Most Merciful and the one who gives out his mercy. What does it make you feel about Allah?
To try hard, okay. Does it make you feel hopeful? Would you say? Yeah, when you hear mercy, everyone gets mercy and so much mercy, VC kind of feel hopeful, right? You feel like okay, shala I can get mercy to even if I've done wrong things, I can still I can still get I can still get allies. Mercy doesn't matter even if I've done something wrong. Like Allah said, kuliah eva De La Nina isaku, Allah and fusi him, la takanobu, Mirage Mattila
or my servants who have oppressed themselves they've gone against they've done something wrong to themselves. Don't despair. What does despair mean?
give up hope. Yeah. Don't give up hope of mercy from Allah.
Don't give up hope
of mercy from Allah in Allah Al Pharaoh unova. Jamia, Allah forgives all sins, so it gives you hope. Okay.
Maliki Yomi, Dean.
Okay. The first thing I got a question for you. Have you ever heard this ayah recited differently?
What do you think Danny?
Do you know what it sounded like when you heard it differently? Maliki Yo, Medina. Okay. So the first question is, how can there be different ways of reciting the Quran?
How can they be different ways of reciting the crime? How is it possible? Because you can't recite the Quran however you like. We all agreed you can't just make it up. Yeah, you can't say Maliki you can't see him. You have to say, Maliki, or in a different way, Maliki omit it.
Okay, and even Melly kiyomi Dean, you can't see unless you know how to read the whole sorta like that. You can't just read one I like that you have to read the whole surah in that style, but how can they be different ways of reading the Quran? How can people have just made up new ways of reading the Quran?
Okay, different. I agree with you different types of Arabic The even I'm not talking about modern Arabic. I'm talking about classical Arabic had low heart it had different
it had different you can say dialect or different types of language, which were from different tribes, but still doesn't answer you can't just recite it the way one tribe recited it.
Okay, that's okay. You're talking about here you're talking about the growth of the Quran the way the Quran contains the language of all of the tribes. That's fine, but that doesn't explain how I can recite the Quran in different ways.
Shout out loud. Not I can't hear you.
If you don't say it loudly, the person on the mic can hear you.
I don't want him to say because right say you got the answer right.
Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did. That's the right answer. Well done. That's the right answer. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did. He didn't recite the Quran one way only. he recited the Quran in different ways. And all of those different ways were preserved and learnt and memorized and passed on. Does that make sense? So the Prophet sighs haven't recited sometimes melody kiyomi Dean, and sometimes he recited Maliki will meet Dean and you can't mix and match you have to do you have to learn how to do one and then learn how to do another one. You can't just one day decide to read Maliki omit it and you have to learn the whole thing. So the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did it and the Sahaba learned different
styles of reading from him with some changes some slightly different words the words still match the when you open the door and the words match, but sometimes the the markings above the letters change or that one word comes long one come short like that. Yeah.
And this was passed on and preserved. So all of these are many many people learnt it and they passed it from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam until it was recorded from some of the Imams of the Quran.
Do you know anything else and salts of fatty had it's sometimes pronounced differently
know what people are talking about what the prophets lights elaborate how he read differently in sort of 230
very famous one very famous word in sort of 30 the prophets Isom recited it three different ways
not allow him one way only our manual Rahim only one way.
Okay, Sirat the word, Sirat
the word Surat
how do we read? Sirat?
Syed with Assad? Right?
Sirat here. What are the other ways the prophets I seldom read Sarah to other ways.
Not like that little bit too much. Not like that. Nearly.
He read it as halfway between Assad and as i ziraat
ziraat between Assad
and azurae surat,
Surat. And another way
with the scene Sera,
So he read it differently. And the Imams of the Quran they learned the different ways to read it, and they kept it. Does anyone know the way that we usually read the Quran? Most people here? Do you know the name of that way?
The style that we usually read, do you know what it's called? Go on.
Okay, it's got two people's names. It's got the name of the student and the name of the teacher
in it, because then the ways of reading they're known by the students name and the teacher's name. So we're not I'm the Prophet size and read all of them. But there was a famous teacher who taught that way. And a famous student who learned it from him.
Huff's was the name of the student and what was the name of the teacher? Awesome.
So we call it half an awesome meaning half's who learnt it from awesome. That's the way we read the Quran. Usually most people today when you hear the Imam read in the masjid, most of the time you hear half an awesome
and not a tiny number. Actually, just the main emails were seven and their students each at least two, you have 14 and that's just
There's many after that many more, that's just so have just one out of
out of 14 and in fact, out of Yeah, 214 if you want to be, and then on top of that you have three more and then and then and then you have many, many. So
if you look at that, the way we read, there are so many different ways to read the Quran. But how can you learn those different ways? What do you have to do first?
First, you have to learn one all the way through. So you have to learn half all the way to the end, from Al hamdu, lillahi, rabbil, aalameen, all the way until meenal, giannetti, oneness on the beginning all the way to the end by memory. And when your teacher checked you and gave you permission, you can move on and you can learn a different one.
What do you think is more What do you think most of the Imams read? Do you think most of them read Maliki oma Dean or Maliki or Medina?
If you think Maliki oma Dean Put your hand up.
Most of them read
you use of what do you think?
All of them read Maliki only Dean except to
there was an Imam whose name was awesome. We know ask him the one how we read. Awesome read Malik el Medina. And another Imam was called al kisai. He also read Maliki omitted everyone else read Maliki oma Dean.
So you're going to inshallah, this is to give you an encouragement, why I'm telling you is, so you feel encouraged that you finish the Quran, in the style of half's the narration of hafs, who's taped from his teacher awesome. And then you can learn a different way. And you can read something in a different way. And then you can let another one and another one and another one and another one and another one. And you learn the Quran so many different ways. And you learn more about the Quran as well. You can learn more about the Quran. And these days, you don't see many people, there's many, many people still know how to read all the different ways. But in the message you rarely very, very
rare you hear somebody reads a different way to what we are used to.
And sometimes if you read maybe people can you imagine if you read Xerox aladeen and anti Lee who say why you read it, he'll say get this environment, take him out and
send someone else.
But there's different ways. So it's nice to you to learn that so that in the future, you have a dream that you can not just finish the Quran in one way, in one style. But you can finish the Quran in many different ways. And you can listen to it sometimes when you finished you can listen to the different ways and you can you can learn some of them because it's nice to read the Quran.
It gives you a different gives you more energy, it gives you more understanding about the Quran. You enjoy changing, not reading the same way every time. Yeah, so it's something nice to think about. So what's the difference between Maliki or Medina Maliki or meetings? They're both from the Quran they both Quran so we have to know both of them for the Tafseer. That's another thing.
If you have two different ways of reading an ayah, you have to learn the Tafseer of both.
Otherwise you haven't done the Tafseer.
So what does Maliki Yama do? We start with an awesome or we start with us and asked him for a citation. And then keizai Maliki Omi Dean.
What does it mean? So Maliki means King. Let's go with Malik.
Malik. The original word means someone who owns something, right? The Arabic word Malika.
It means to own something.
Or it also can mean to have power over something as well.
So Allah subhanaw taala describes himself as Malik
And he describes it for Yama, D.
So you could call it sovereign you could call it the owner,
the one who is in complete control of yo ma Diem, or Yami d. v. Day of ID. A Dean doesn't mean judgment. You're right. It is the day of judgment, but it doesn't mean judgment. The way Dean is difficult with science you call it Recompense. But what it means is you get back the reward or the punishment for what you've done.
That's what we're doing.
means you get reward if you've done good, and you get punished or you might get punished. You will get punished because Allah might forgive you, but you might get punished if you've done something. If you've done something wrong.
What does that make you feel when you hear that Allah is madly, kiyomi deep lies the owner, sovereign, like the king, the controller, the one who has power over the Day of Recompense the day when everyone's gonna get the rewards or the punishments. How does it make you feel?
Do you feel happy? No.
Scared, little bit scared here. That
on that day, a lie there's, if Allah doesn't forgive me there, I've got no chance of there's nobody going to come and help me.
Why did Allah then say Maliki or Medina when allies Malik coalition, Allah is the king of everything, the Sovereign of everything.
Why did Allah say, Why did Allah say about that day? Or like specifically that day? Every day, Allah is Al Malik,
the sovereign the king,
lies in control every day. Why did he say that day?
He's in charge every day.
Okay, I'll give you a few different ways. First of all, in this world, does everybody agree that Allah is the true king? And that Allah is the only God worthy of worship? No.
Are they wrong or right? They're wrong. But the people in this world, they don't all agree on that day. Will anyone disagree? Nobody. So it will be clear on that day. That's one reason. Because on that day, nobody's gonna have any excuse. Nobody is going to see on that day. I'm a Hindu, I'm a Buddhist.
atheist, I'm a Christian, I'm a Jew, no one on that day is going to say any of that.
The other thing is in this world, people own things. But how do they own it?
Who gave it to them?
Allah gave it to them. So you don't really own anything, except what Allah gave you. But it seems like you own things like, you know, you look at this guy says, I own this house, this is my car. On the day of judgment, you're gonna have a house, you're gonna have a car, when you come out of your grave. You can even have not even ever have clothes, let alone a house and a car. So it will be clear to everybody, the allies, the true owner of everything. And it will be clear to everybody that ally is the one that is in control of everything. And nobody will deny it. Nobody will say it's not true.
In fact, the people who didn't believe in Islam will stop making excuses, they will try. They will start seeing all law we didn't we and then allow will
seal them off, and their hands and their feet will speak about what they did. So it's a very scary day. It's a very scary day. So it's a day you have to be scared of.
So the first is out of Mara Haim gave you hope. The second is Maliki Ahmed Dean gave you fear made you scared? What about the first one of hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen.
When you think that Allah is the one who looks after you, takes care of you, gives you everything. Thankful, grateful. Good, that's good.
Some of the scholars say makes you love Allah.
Because you feel like you, you feel what you feel like, what's the word? You feel like? Allah has given you so many things and you feel so grateful. You love Allah. And you have to love a lot more than everyone else. What's the evidence for that? cameraman?
Come on elastic little kids, that you have to love a lot more than everything else.
The word for love is hope.
no to you
Hello ben de la
wamena Naseem a tequila we do an inlet.
And then you have born at home. Carol Bella, welcome levena M No. I said to her Bonilla, there are some people who have idols and partners that they love more than they love Allah. But those who believe love Allah more.
How do you show you love Allah?
apartment? How do you show you love Allah. So Allah
to hip bone Allah factor VOD, say if you love Allah, follow Who? The prophets Allah.
If you love Allah, that means Allah has to come first. Right? If you love Allah, that means that Allah has to be the most important to you. That means if you love a law, you have to love a lot more than your mom and dad. You have to love a lot more than you love your games and toys. You have to love a lot more than you love everything that you have. So if you find something is haram, why'd What? What would you do? You would leave it because you love Allah more
than you love that thing that you're doing this Hold on. Does that make sense?
Okay, Maliki oma Deen Malik el Medina,
the king, the true king.
The sovereign. When you say the word King, what does that what meaning does that give you? what's what's a king in the sense of Allah? Because it's not. I mean, what's what makes I mean, it's not like the world. It's not like a person. So what makes a lot of King, the king and Melek sovereign. sovereign is just like a more difficult word for a king.
What what mean? What's the meaning you take from that?
If a person came in this world said, I'm the king of this country.
In Charge, okay.
The alarm makes the rules of what's right and wrong. Yeah.
That everything Allah says and commands is done. Does that make sense? Because you would expect like a king who says, okay, you know, put that guy in prison.
People don't turn around and say no, right? Nobody turns around and says no, no. I mean, okay. In the world, people do things like that. But for a law, nobody ever says our law says do it. Nobody says no.
The allies in control that Allah owns everything. Don't you think that about a kingdom, the king is the one that
everything is theirs, everything belongs to them. And they gave out things to people like the kings of England who gave out you know, you can have this piece of land, you can have this piece of land, you can have this house, you can have these, you know, horses and you know, soldiers, they belong to you, they but they give out but it belongs to them in the first place. So everything in the universe belongs to Allah. Everything in the heavens belongs to Allah. And Allah only give things to people temporarily. Okay, what else?
in control, that whatever they say, that's what has to happen,
that they own everything and nobody else owns anything.
at all, Allah is going to question people about what they've done. Allah is going to ask, why did you do this? Why did you do that? And nobody's going to ask Allah. They're all from the meanings of and Malik from the meanings of Al Malik. Okay, good power as well. That's the other one. I was thinking of power. The word King means power. Right? When you think about it.
You have the power over people. And a law has complete power over us.
So that's the meaning of Maliki yo Medina or Maliki Yeoman.
Okay, when you say al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. What did I say? Allah says,
My servant has praised me homogeneity. When you see our manual Rahim. Allah says, My journey it. My servant has glorified me.
Okay, like meaning that my servant has said
the best things about me or my servant. Hi.
mentioned my glory mentioned my how I am above everyone and better than everyone. Yeah.
When you see
Murli kiyomi Dean, Allah says ethna ie it myself servant has
is kind of like praised ethna la
praises something like that.
And he has mentioned my praises that ally that you said the servant has mentioned about Allah, all those things which are good.
And we can only mention about allowance good if we say it What about Allah what Allah said otherwise if we try to say about Allah something good from ourselves, we probably get it wrong. Right. So we have to say about Allah what Allah said
about himself as early as
what do you say next?
He cannot boo do what he can so
okay. yaka, it means only you.
That's what it means here.
only iaca only you know, Buddha, we worship.
We only worship you.
What do you think that? How is that important? Why is that important? You said what do you think? Why is that important? Did you so I can hear what you say.
Why is it important that we only worship Allah?
Okay, as your first question, why is it important that we worship Allah?
Okay, it is right, it's the right thing to do is all I need is to worship him. No.
For us, it's good for us, Allah, it's the right thing to do for a lot what Allah deserves. But a lot doesn't need us to worship him.
Why is it important is always important to worship Allah
is the easy answer. And I've already mentioned it in the class.
Yeah, no doubt is good for us. But why? Why worship Allah? Why do you worship Allah?
we need to know that we need to, Allah doesn't need us, but we need him.
Why do you think
you have good answers. come back and join the class please.
Okay, so could you say them? The reason we worship Allah is because Allah is Rob bull al amin, R Rahman Rahim, Maliki oma Deen, would that not be a good answer? Because Allah is the Lord of the worlds and because Allah is the most Gracious, Most Merciful the bestow of mercy, because Allah is the owner or the king of the Day of Recompense. That's why we worship Allah.
Is that the only reason that's just an example of the Allies names and allies? attributes? What does attributes mean?
The things to do with Allah the things we describe Allah with what we say about Allah, how we describe Allah. Yeah, so Allah, his names and the things we say about a lot of the things we describe our law, how we describe a law, those things mean that Allah is the only one that deserves to be worshipped. Does that make sense? If Allah is the one who created you, we said Robben Island, Allah is the Creator. Allah is the Sustainer. Allah is the one that provides for you. Allah is the one that gives you life. Allah is the one that causes you to die. Allah is the one that gives you mercy. Allah is the one who forgives you Allah is the one who will give you either paradise or
something else on the Day of Resurrection on the Day of Judgment. Okay, if Allah is like that, how can you worship Anything else?
For example, now, this is why I said only is
worshiping Allah enough.
You have to
only worship Allah. That word has to be that La ilaha illAllah. There is no god that deserves to be worshipped except Allah, you have to only worship Allah. You can't just worship Allah. You have to
only worship Allah. Because Let me ask you a question.
Give me something other people worship.
cows. That's true. Surprisingly enough. There are some people who really, genuinely worship cows. I told you what I saw when I would, I've told you a few times, I don't know if I told this class, I went to India. And when I was in India, I saw this huge queue of people.
Maybe over 100, maybe more 100 people in a queue. And they were carrying plates of food and fruits, and they were carrying flowers in like a necklace of flowers. And they were carrying all kinds of trays with perfume and incense and everything.
And they were, you know,
bowing down to this cow.
A lot of them. So they would go to the cow. And they would give the food they would bow like we bow in prayer. And they would ask the cow for? I don't know, Jenna,
whatever. And they would give the plate of fruit and the thing and they would take the necklace of flowers and put it and put it on the cow.
Well, I asked you a lot does that cow know anything that's going on?
That cow doesn't have a clue.
What are you people doing? What are you doing?
Does the cow eat those bananas and apples and oranges? Their cow wants the grass? He should have given me a plate of grass.
He was the benefit of these bananas and incense and perfume. I just wanted to play a grass that's what I eat.
If you ask the cow for agenda can the cow give you agenda?
And how much of a sin as to how bad is that the Allah give them everything. And Allah created that cow would the cow create itself. And then they go and they pray to that cow. And they give food to that cow and they put flowers on the cow and they put to the cow and they worship the cow.
And the cow just sits there going?
Because the cow doesn't even speak.
The cow can't even say thank you. Not that the cow would say thank you because cows. So Pamela like Allah said inhome kill an army Bella whom they're like cows more than more misguided and if the cow knows more than them.
But even if the cow could speak, maybe the cow will say you know,
thanks for the bananas or something you know, like, but the cow can't even speak How can you make do art? Something that can't even speak? How do you make to add something? How do you bow your head down on the floor? to something that can't even to? Okay, nevermind. Let's just say this cow has amazing power. Hold on a second how many cows are in the world?
Lots and lots millions and millions? And how do you know which cow Okay, it just randomly grabbed the cow from the field.
It's not a special cow is just one of the many cows.
Tomorrow that cow is going to be way less be brutal. Tomorrow that cow is going to be a beef burger.
Tomorrow that cow is going to be somebodies beef burger.
Tomorrow that cow is going to be someone steak and chips.
That's how it's going to be that cow couldn't stop itself from dying. How is he going to stop you from dying?
And that's why they get upset if somebody hurts the cow hits the cow or can you hit the cow with your car and the cow dies?
You killed my God.
What kind of God is that?
What kind of God is that?
What kind of God is it that you hit it and it dies and he can't do anything? how you're going to go and ask that cow to save you.
But that's not the only example. The cow at least is alive. There are more strange examples than that. There are people who go to stone
They put the stone, they make it a house, they build a house, huge temple over the stone.
And they go into the temple. And they put food for the stone wall like this is more stupid than the people who put food for the cup.
They put food for the stone.
I'm gonna ask you another question. Hold on, I believe that each of us are more than that.
Why do you need to feed God? God is the one that feeds you. You don't feed God. You don't give God food. God doesn't need food. And God is the one who gives you food. But they go to the stone and they put the food in front who eats the food by the way, they come back to see my god the food who ate the food.
The rats that are outside loving it. The rats I think in this is our This is our time, these people keep putting food on the floor on top of the stone. This is our time. Now.
They scurry up the the food that people can buy. It's a miracle. The stone ate the food.
Either the store in it either the rats eat the food, or, you know someone swiped on the way out. Someone said no one's looking. Okay.
Some of them will love him more than that, to be honest. They let the food rot. And they just take the food and throw it away. And then they put the food another plate of food again.
You see people worshipping all sorts of things.
While you see people there are people who became Muslim. They told us they used to worship the pigs.
And they used to worship monkeys.
The tour will lie is it very lovely brothers we know who became Muslim. And they told us our family they used to worship monkeys and some of them used to worship pigs.
People worship the stars, people, people until today, I'm told I'm not talking about stupid people educated people who believe that the stars in the sky change what's going to happen to you tomorrow. And they read it in the newspaper. They open the newspaper and the newspaper says to them that the star today is going to make you rich.
I'm sorry, that star doesn't have a clue.
As far as a ball of fire, it doesn't have any idea what you're talking about. It doesn't have any clue. Allah made it either to decorate the sky or Allah made it to show you how to go how to travel at night which way to go or a lot needed to hit the shape on
or any combination of them.
A lot didn't make it for you to think that your money is going to come because this star people believe if you are born on a certain day, your life today if you were born in June, your life is going to be really different tomorrow.
You cannot understand Yes Have you
I can't understand it. You take that down.
You know when people worship the sun what happens to them?
that's a assumption. No, they've come up they come in the morning. You see them come in the morning when the sun rises they say we worship the sun the sun came back.
Where was the sun in the middle of the night when your gold
they believe the strangest things like don't think the Christians are free from this. The Christians with God had arrest on a Sunday.
Court doesn't have arrest doesn't go to sleep.
If you had arrest, you would all die on that day.
It doesn't have a cooling layer women who have a shower Shan every day he is doing things Subhana Allah you see what people believe but Muslims,
all of us God, he aka Naboo you alone we worship.
You alone we worship. And I mentioned about trees worshipping trees. People were so many people worship trees, and they worship dead trees and living trees as well. And they hang their clothes on it for blessings and they hang things on it and they give him jewelry and hanging on the tree for the tree to give them things and
what if you were the one who planted that tree
see people commonly touch the tree start touching the tree and start rubbing their face and their hands. People touch stones people carry stones around this this stone is given me special powers
it's just a stone The best thing you can do with it is either build a build something with it or throw it at something or, you know you can use it to clean yourself in the bathroom or something. It's not that it's not there to change your life. It's a stone.
Yeah, can I put you alone we worship we worship Allah, we worship the Creator. Nothing else creates except Allah. We worship the one who is in control of everything and nothing is in control except Allah. We worship the one who gives you all the good things you had came from Allah. And nothing came from stones and trees and stars and animals of different kinds.
We worship the one who looked after you from a before you were a baby until you became a baby until you became an adult and kept on giving you all of these good things. We worship the one who is our Rahman r Rahim. The one who is in control the one who's going to bring you back to life after you die. That's the one we worship er Can I put you alone? We worship?
What he Yeah, cat necessary. And you alone? We ask for help.
We seek help from any we ask help from. Okay, couple of questions. We're going to finish with this ayah By the way, you know, finishing concluded this ayah. So, first of all, what does worship mean? Someone said to you what is worship?

Being good to

everything that Allah loves and is pleased with
actions, whether they are

that's what worship is everything our law loves everything Allah loves
whether statements or actions on the inside or on the outside Okay, now I'm going to ask you a more difficult question.
Let's start with
things you say that Allah loves
not individual words. You got to give me different different things.
Vicar Okay, remembering Allah.

Vicar got went already. He Mashallah instead of saying hamdulillah Subhan Allah gave the whole the liquor when there's more.
Given Sunnah to your Yeah, is that not one? Salam Alaikum. Okay, what else keep going? Things that you say that Allah loves?
Come on quickly, because the silence means you pick up the noise from next door. It's making a noise. So I want to talk so that the noise doesn't come on the mic.
Come back to you. shala. Russia, Russia now.
What about if you said something nice to your kennametal telling you about you said something nice to your brother. Like your brother was sad. You saw somebody who's not feeling well. And you said to him, You okay, how are you? Fine. We missed you last week. You know something you said something nice to someone many examples. Okay. So we got what we said okay, what about something that we? What about something that we do? Everyone has to give me example. You want to go first? Something we do with our hands and legs. Now what you got easiest to give a first example I'm giving you first choice. Okay, go on.
Something you do that Allah loves
the actions of the prayer, okay, actions of the prayer like bowing sujood and standing in prayer. Okay. Yes.
Going around the cabinet. Very nice.
Where are we here? Where are we now?
Where are you now?
In the masjid. So how about
walk into the mystery of going to the masjid. You obviously remember my coat but from last week.
Something else that you do with your hands that Allah loves
giving charity to people excellent. Yella, Masha
We say we say something you do physically. I gave you the example of speech even give the same example I gave a speech give it for action.
I give you what we said this one I would say physically do with your hands
the highest of Eman is La ilaha illAllah which nobody said from the things you should say that la loves La ilaha illAllah. Okay. Not from AD con la la la la la is different from Epcot. Or we can be from the Epcot but generally it's a statement of Eman right.
The highest of the mind is La ilaha illAllah was the lowest branch of Eman,
Eman or 60 something or 70 something branches the highest is La ilaha illAllah the lowest is
taking something harmful from the road Mashallah excellent. taking something harmful from the road. Sometimes spotlights walk down the street if I see a piece of glass, just pick it up and put it in the bin. Although you don't know how much reward you get from Allah you just picked a piece of glass and put it in the bin.
That's part of your Eman. What else
no, keep going.
Or you can't think of anything. What have we what's been going on here for the last few days and weeks?
Working for the masjid building the masjid okay building a Masjid.
Yeah, to clean in the masjid going around and hoovering the masjid.
What did Allah say in Mar mortal masajid Allah, men are men who will ask the only people who look after the masjid and build the messages of people who believe in Allah and the Last Day. So it's very important that you share in the jobs in the message you look after the masjid you take care of it, clean it, and so on. That's part of it. Okay, now it's harder. This was the easy one. Now I want
things that you do with your heart that Allah loves.
I give first chance to our
normal biggest versus easiest. I'm giving you easiest one.
Something you do in your heart that Allah loves
Okay, which was loving Allah. Okay, good. What else? We mentioned sort of it had three already. We mentioned loving Allah and we mentioned
That's not in your heart that's with your tongue.
We said in sort of fat how we said love and R Rahmani Raheem. We said
We said hope and Molly kiyomi. Dean, we said it makes you feel
it makes you feel scared feeling scared of Allah. Okay, what else?
What else we got one?
Loving the Prophet. So I said an excellent loving who Allah loves. But that's the type of loving Allah because it came from loving Allah. And the reason you love the Prophet size lm is because Allah loves the Prophet. So I said,
That's true. What else do you do with your heart? There are maybe 50 easily you can give actions you do with your heart.
Things you don't do with your hands. You don't do it with your tongue. You don't say it out loud. You just do with your heart.
Before you start your prayer, you always mentioned that every time you mentioned it and I kept getting it wrong. And you kept saying the first thing you do is intention.
What else am shy?
Chef Momo Judah.
There's about 40 There's loads.
You have another one Go ahead.
Give me that one You said you have another one going to be
tower cool reliance in Allah loving Allah hoping Allah fearing Allah
trusting in Allah
law hate him for the sake of Allah good. Loving for the sake of a lion hating for the sake of Allah
thinking what about like thinking and reflecting thinking about the Quran? Just thinking about the signs of Allah thinking about the Quran
Be scared of Allah we mentioned that.
Yeah. So there are a lot of examples of things you all of these types of worship, okay? You will only worship you alone we asked for help is asking Allah for help a type of worship.
So why did Allah mentioned separately?
Allah said you, only You we worship, and only you, we asked for help.
Okay, so it could be that someone worships Allah. But most of the people who fell into making partners with Allah, they fell into it by asking help from those things. Yeah, so it's not allowed to ask anyone for help, right? Not at all. haraam? Yeah. So for example, when I say could you set the camera up for me, I left Islam with that.
Okay, so you asking someone for help for something that only a law can do. That's what is is meant by what takes you out of Islam. So for example, saying to someone give me agenda, saying to someone, protect me from every harm saying to someone,
give me life, cause so on so to die, so on. So like, the things that are only in the hands of Allah. Okay, good.
Is it good, though, to ask people for help? Too much? Just generally? No, it's not good. It's not good. Okay. So Allah said this for a number of reasons. First of all, did you have another one?
Okay, first of all, first of all, the first reason is because the first reason is because a lot of people fell into the mistake of asking other people for things that are in the hands of Allah. Yeah. Also, because it's so important, also, because
when you ask that person for something does that, could they get harm? If they are happy for you to ask them? Yeah, if they're happy for you to ask them for something that's only for Allah yet. And they they also? Definitely,
also, because you're actually asking a lot for help here. So this is the first place in Salatu Fatiha, where you start to ask for something.
Because when you say we only ask you for help.
Like it's saying that so help me right. Like that's, it's another way of asking Allah help me. If you say, oh, Allah, I'm only asking you for help. What does that mean? Help me.
He means help me because it's not I'm not asking anybody else. So it's, it's asking you in a different way, you're asking a lot to help you and that's why this ayah Allah says, this ayah is between me
had a baby you obey now it? This is between me and my servant. What is for Allah?
Which bit of that is for a law and which bits for the servant?
For our allies, the worship
and for the servant is asking for help any of the bit that comes to you as you ask Allah for help. You're asking a lot for help.
Does that make sense? Okay, do we have any questions before we finish off?
Anything you didn't understand?
Okay, and that's where a lot made easy for us this time next lesson we're going to do the third part a DNS server all files
as well are made easy for us to mention Allah knows best was salatu salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi H mehreen
