Regardless for Hanny's book, The RE ILM Academy Sharia it's about something that's extremely important he talks about these of the in the title the book is about macadam machete. What's McHattie? Machete? macadam, Sharia is kind of in distinction to the cam Sharia. So the camera the rules, okay, what do you have to do? What's wajib? What's followed what's on What's Mr. Have all these things like do this do that do the other. So it kind of assumes an obedient reader, a motivated subject, like someone who's ready to put things into action that's like your standard fifth books, your standard fifth books are about the chemistry about the rules of the city. Whereas

00:00:47 --> 00:01:05

a book that's about the macadam machete are about, it's about the wisdom that's in the city, it's about the consideration. That's in the Sharia. It's about appreciating the beauty of the guidelines and the framework that Allah has found Tata gave us and the wisdom How does a laws,

00:01:06 --> 00:01:49

names and attributes his characteristics manifest themselves in the legal system that he gave us as guidance? Right? So it's, it's important to kind of realize this kind of distinction between cam and macadam? Because we live in a time where a lot of people are in greater need of the macadam than they are of the cam, or at least they need to understand the macadam before they're able to accept the outcome. Okay. So for example, when I, when I first came here to Utica, as an Imam, somebody said, okay, brother, you have to give a HIPAA about how women dress. They're coming to the masjid, they're not dressing appropriately. And my response to that person was, well, you don't think they

00:01:49 --> 00:02:24

already don't know what the shittiest says? Maybe it's not about information. Maybe it's about motivation, right? So if we're looking at, okay, what's the genre of literature that's going to kind of solve that problem of motivation and of care? It's the macadam it's not the outcome, you can talk to a wall all day, you have to do this. And you have to do that. And you have to do that. And if the person isn't motivated, and they don't have the relationship with Allah, where they're ready to submit to that sort of thing, you're talking to a wall, it's not going to benefit them at all. So focusing on the macadam of the Sharia, right, Why did Allah give us this guidance? Why is it

00:02:24 --> 00:03:03

relevant for you today? What are the good things that are going to happen when you're in compliance with Allah's guidance? What are the dangerous things that might happen when you're not? What's going on the internal dimension of your soul, when you're living in harmony with the way that Allah wants you to behave and to act, versus what sort of Discord is occurring when you're in contradiction to that guidance, right? This is the sort of genre of the macadam of the idea because at the end of the day, you know, compliance grows out of a faithful heart, right? And so the task at hand is to enable the heart to grow more faithful, so that there is a greater importance placed placed on the rules

00:03:03 --> 00:03:12

and a greater, you know, level of caution or a greater importance placed on caring about what Allah said about these things in the first place.
