in recent years from us from two African countries and countries how now we have so many guests coming to some for very good purposes unconsciously making hidden forces
this candidate and the second is the ownership disabuse there's a problem because we didn't within countries we've found over time is our problems in Turkey.
somebody accidentally pressured
you to separate our foundation in
so solid for 243 years ago, our main purpose and purpose is all more about academic activities the
US versus us
we have very good partnerships with so many countries in Africa and Siam also in agents
more than one country
America so that you can
so maybe give just a couple of examples
so let's before we how guests and vectors from different colleges are from different universities, like parts of university and I say to the university,
well as as from academic social programs
but I'm going to tell you this sacred
So, we talk about the modern problems, who started which are affecting isn't enhanced rates in recent years, specifically, the problems coming from materials and underwriting which are attacking the faith
as you can target specific candidates
on desktop. So, having examined the course books, for example, in psychology and biology, physics, we are realizing that so many materialistic understandings and frameworks are systemized in explaining and expression to issues regarding science
Burisch that one reduce
pollution in India
so for example, look at those coursebooks mme exam this one plover we never see why there is an explanation about who did this three it is flour for example. Listen to me, going out and save your
knowledge. So that perspective is brings another perspective which
glamour I don't have the result. You can join next
all of that.
love to have
foundation we have some negotiations about what we can do in the future
and we talked about
the issue that for example, when we examine Grace reversing grace we see that just one out of 10 is talking about the do's and don'ts but the maturity curve is verses are talking about
separations about beauty
if we approach the issues from the perspective of majority versus talking about operations about the universe versus interview
we can approach people more in a better way because if we will have a strong coming from those flash leads, how can he know he has a very practical life as well
who have visited on local shows when shorter was often
longer we are talking about these issues in our foundation of activities and our meetings with different things
is our provision of care names give us
and in Canada Krishna
so nothing is just our foundation this is your foundation in logic behind foundations and coming from all the way pyre is to help people access people, not the people buy the animals and plants around the environment.
So you're always welcome
hoping that's giving you an insight as to what this foundation does contribution index to the community and humanity at large brothers sisters, I mean, we haven't incited the nature of our wildlife and say is now that you know about the work they do, get involved, told me by standard don't watch the world go by I think that's someone else's responsibility. This is our community. Every single one of us who lives in this city or in this country should contribute back one way or the other. We all have numerous gifts and that's why Bella has gifted every single one of us it's something special, understand what that gift is and giving back to the community. Okay, so
2014 2014 Check it out here and I and another brother of ours mashallah amazing, but as a dude, he's giving it to us.
We were at a restaurant in Malaysia, in Kuala Lumpur. And most things that myself shaky
conjure up is always based over food. So if you want to when
you get the food ready. So what happened was, we're sitting there and we're talking about the state of the OMA, we're talking about what's going on in the world around us. And we realize, you know, we need to do something more. I mean, we try to do what we can, but we don't always push for something Well, so what we decided upon was a name and check the idea came up with it called fresh socks. Okay. So let's think about this.
Once a year. We put our life on hold. Our focus becomes Ramadan. We pray more. We walk around, we focus more we give away to charity.
And then after those 30 days are gone, guess what? We're back into the same rat race again, we waited 11 months before that cycle turns. So the aim of fresh start was just to press that reset button. As you can see, the logo is very much the same thing. Press it to start again. So what we wanted to do was create something which will make a difference in people's lives and provide solutions. Since 2014. Fresh starts now works in the humbler with taking that Cisco Live today, in eight countries around the world. Martial law, the lives that we impact, we have no idea. And to be honest, we don't really care. We just want a reward of a day of judgment. And so when we started
fresh shots, what we were aiming to do was find solutions for our lives. As a life coach, I always say that the quality of your life is based on the quality of relationships that you have,
the quality of the relationships you have, based on the trust that you develop. And the level of trust that you develop is based on the intimacy you creates. Now I'm not talking about
popcorn, love, Hollywood, Bollywood love, that's not love.
I'm not talking about reality TV. I'm not talking about any other kind of love out there, apart from true love. And let's think about this.
Every single relationship, a connotation of that.
But when we have problems in our lives between father and son, between brothers, between spouses, we got reality TV, got on social media, we look at our friends lives and try to get
by how many of us revert back to the grind to find the solutions. And this is the essence of what freshstart is all about. And over the years we've had some great scholars also part of this organization with his projects almost demand is done
in some of them just ran away from South Africa was a great marriage counselor has also contributed towards this and 100 are
the ones that will go further
who's head of checkout
Okay, so she IKEA IKEA. I don't know how you can honor someone who has actually achieved so much in their life. Jeff yaki was the youngest Imam ever graduated in Canada. And I think it was at the age of 16. Yes.
I'm just writing it.
As the youngest of South Africa, South Africa, or South Africa
is a student of knowledge. He's the assistant principal at a school in Perth with his family. He's Canadian education, and Ozzy and attack.
So he has a mixture of mashallah coaches.
He's also a champion Islamic chuckling at the Curtin University in Perth mashallah, he gives a range of various different social issues that affect us our communities, highly, highly respected amongst many people among Imams around the world and is not just a D ID a brother to me. He's a man that I'm willing to wake up early at four o'clock in the morning and share a cheese sandwich because he loves his cheese steaks.
So without further ado, I'll pass your answers check out bed ready? And shall we this session will last for one hour we'll break at 830 for Madrid, and then we will resume at night

Well, I think it's a pleasure and hamdulillah to be with you, my dear brothers and sisters here in the beautiful city of Istanbul. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala allows us to always gather for that which is a noble purpose, that we seek His Word we seek His light, that it's something that we seek for greater than entertainment or knowledge, but that it becomes something that is a formative change in my life and yours, that it's something that we seek to take, absorb, practice and teach unto others. Your foot in the video sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Femara holy Muhammad Buhari, Jairo command dal lemon
Khurana wa lemma the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that the best of you and this statement of the best of you is sometimes misunderstood. It doesn't mean the best of you always. You can be the best one moment and be the worst and other. Some people you know they miss understand the statements of the prophets. It said the best of you, meaning if you are consistent in it, and maintain it and practice it. You can achieve it once but it doesn't mean that you remain in that place. That's why there's so many statements of hydrocodone, hydrocodone, hydrocodone, there's many opportunities. Not everyone is going to accomplish learning the Quran and teaching.
Some of us might be good with our spouses may Allah protect us some of us may not be good with our spouses but good with the Quran. Everyone has an opportunity to find a place where they can reform. But where we are interested at the moment is how you recommend dad lemon.
The one who seeks to learn that lemma that TA is an active it's an active process is an unending process is a consistent, achievable gain and goal.
Sometimes when students and we were speaking with one of the families who was traveling with me, sometimes when our students fall back in their head
we assume that they have to achieve it in a certain period of time. You know, subhanAllah one of my teachers he memorized the Quran, the other batty ashore, the whole Quran for months.
When I heard this, I was like
four months out, I G shahada jabber for Allah Allah, Allah Allah. Allah Allah. Ha
Alhamdulillah I completed the Quran about 18 months people say, Huh, it took me 20 Somebody else might say
five years Subhanallah my father a few years ago,
age 70 Plus he rang me
and I was in Australia. He's in Canada. He says hello, hello. I'm finished. I said what do you finish? So hello sir Khurana finished it having the lab finally finish. Mohamed Salah Salem received the Quran over how many years
23 years lifelong machine. It from the moment of ikura until a week before his death. Yeah, your nurse topolobampo until a week before that.
The Quran was active in his lifecycle.
The prophets I seldom would be warned by Allah.
That that again Don't be earnest in resuscitation in seeking to teach it to others. Allah subhanaw taala says I give it to you monad German bits and pieces parts and different times different opportunities linear with Epita vehicle that make your heart firm that your practice of it grows up the line neuroma. QMF Asahi says Kwinana dad and then Asheville I yet we used to take the knowledge of 10 verses and 10 verses and 10 verses, it doesn't mean that they didn't memorize more, but it meant that they didn't just memorize and forget and keep going with more they aim to put into practice 10 after 10 after 10 people added it makes your heart firm. And hamdulillah over the next
hour after a short break for the Florida we will join again in our a part of a discussion about the love stories of the Quran. I remember when I was asked to visit South Africa to give this seminar one of the masajid they changed it. They changed the poster. They made it you know they put a sticker over the word love.
And it just said stories of the Quran.
And they were like, yeah, and he loved the AFI. What's this love? What's Love Got to do with it?
And we're like, you know,
love is somewhere else.
So there's an emphasis on three words, love stories, oran will begin with the most important word the whole ad before I'm Qlm Allah, the Quran is a literal word of Allah. So when I recite the Quran when I begin with you, and I say as if I
you're not surprised if I begin and I say I'm going to recite from the Quran
I IE, Ford
no problem, beginning of sort of money.
If I was a priest in a church, and they stood up and I said x
or g, you s they say was this my take them off?
Something wrong with it was this letter? Well? Yeah, see begin with something my phone. Another letter was removed. Yeah, I mean, nobody came and said, Listen, we don't know the mobile.
We don't know what these letters mean. And this is important. Nobody on the face of the earth today after Nabina Muhammad sai Salam came up with a surety tell you that the meaning of these letters is only this. I think you're the Allahu Anhu can no matter who we are, we have a Ali will put his hands together and say
I thought that
he understood that each letter were a beginning of one of the names of Allah, some of the other Imams they said NOFA with Allah Illallah we don't know we leave it to Allah subhanaw taala Nobody said we don't know what these letters mean. Let's just begin with what we understand the Quran material because there was a Korea everybody understands it. Nobody skips and if let me if I was to give the Quran to one of my Christian neighbors and I say begin sort of just read it. She will begin to say LM she's not gonna say Elif
meme. Because there's verses in the Quran LM Yeah, tickle. Nebo lady. It's a word and if love meme is a word, why do you read it Elif?
anything, just the book, the Quran is a revelation. When we allow it was suddenly becomes that door for you to enter into receiving that revelation. So when you read Elif Lamin, you don't read it LM you say what did Muhammad's iclm saying?
That she said can be Hamid that when he recited these letters, he would extend each letter long Salah audios
the Quran is the word of Allah
it is the word of Allah that is not just captured in meaning but is the word of Allah that is captured in practice right in practice each other the Allah wanna have a saw here and this I believe in Buhari, mostly people who have not met the province.
Selam they said yeah, I mean, she's my mother, your mother, the mother of the believers. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah curse those who have this honor or seek to dishonor the name of the wives of our Nabil Faisal. This will have over NetBeans license. There are people today who spend millions trying to make movies in mockery of those who are the best after the prophets of Allah, our RP that the effect of Allah sunnah is that no man, after the messengers and the prophets of Allah is better than ever vackra so differently Allahu Anhu Allah, this is your appearance, your belief you live upon it die upon it. This is your belief as a Muslim.

When you look at some of the chapters at the moment, we already have is got a book about Alistair Hannah about seeking help.
And he has a chapter about the Quran. And he says nothing in Islam was given to the Prophet alayhi salam it was rather given to him in the Quran. And anything the Prophet did for who I mean Matt Fahey mominul Quran anything in his sunnah it is only what he understood of the Quran. The revelation given to the prophesy Salam is lawful and, and the actions the Sunnah of the prophets I send them the revelation of the Sunnah is the understanding Allah gives him of how to live the
The powerful statement
Qlm Allah to the word of Allah.
And when Munna isn't brought down in stages, either Mohamed Salah is chosen for this purpose is Mohamed sai Sen. How you to have
the best of the creation of Allah the only one who is able to have withstood the enormous mission of receiving the Quran but also convenient Salalah it was

Moto aberdovey Tilawat mouthful protected the job of the one who commits the Quran is to guard the Quran protected
equally is to guard the Quran in our conduct
one of the things as Muslims that we must always be good so Pamela my daughter she
we were crossing the streets back home in Perth, masha Allah she wears her hijab and him didn't know
I was in civilian you know brothers we are chameleons special now we can fit sure nobody sees nobody knows from a distance sisters Mashallah. Do you have an act of struggle for truth?
We're going to cry and you go No Baba we have to go to the crosswalk there's no cars here because no bother my job people are going to see us law
you have to think
how you through your cup.
Well law he I was at a conference when I was younger, in Texas. And we were there for four days. And one of the assistants in the hotel What do you call them concierge or major executive Islam? How do you accept Islam have this man accept Islam he's one of the people who goes in cleans the room and he said I came into the room the room I'm coming to make the bed that is meant I'm coming to clean the boundary cloud was clean but I know that people three four people living in there
I said I waited to see who are these people? I want to know what the room is so clean Are they not staying there? I see him in the morning. I go hey, what are you guys staying there? Yes. How come you room so clean? So the brother they were new Muslims not new new but they were really convert to Islam revert to Islam mashallah beautiful African American brothers in Detroit.
And they said we're Muslim.
He said What does that mean? Said we're clean.
We wash ourselves. We eat with our right hand we don't mess around. And
he said well, I want to be Muslim too. Let's come. Pamela dameisha had and
he took the name polyp I remember I remember maybe 20 years ago to the name Pauline said I want to be I want to study this. They said okay, your name was partly luck okay, I liked them strongly.
Cleanliness is from our faith but before you put something before you spit in the road look at what you're wearing
one of my teachers who said to me Yeah, for us he said
this I you know hamdulillah as men we have a small baby to be mashallah he said Tell development the
goddess Don't Don't Don't let people you know, mock it. Don't let people see you do something and they see because in Egypt they used to mock the one with the view right? They make movies and don't don't let people see something that is meant to be beautiful in a negative way.
For Hola, hola, no, the Quran is an act of love.
is the greatest story told in the Quran. People are always surprised by this South Africa at the end of my talk, remember I told you, the brother were like, Why did you change the poster?
I told you, we should have consulted the chef first. Because I
I made comments. I said, Why do you have a problem with the word love? Why do you have Why do you have an allergic reaction? You know, sometimes you eat something all sudden red on your face and the skin is like, Why? Why are you allergic to the word love? What's the problem with love? Do you know how many times the product I sell them use the word hate?
What is the problem? You know, who do you love?
He said, Archer, my wife. What's wrong with you? Like why don't you understand Who else am I gonna love more than action? They said no, no, yeah, I mean from us from the Sahara. He said a boo Ha, she's still on his mind. Her father. He doesn't say Abu Bakr the Allah on love is a powerful thing. The greatest Ibadah you and I make is an herb,
your total heat. It begins with any fat alum, and number that you know about Allah.
He is meant to increase until you have Yaqeen.
certainty. It's not just I heard I read I somebody told me, No, I've understood. It's in my heart. I'm putting into action. I have a commitment to it. And
it's fine until I'm certain of Allah subhanaw taala Yuffie allows you then to have COBOL except there are certain things Subhan Allah that are difficult to accept sometimes a person coming into Islam or somebody wasn't practicing, they hear something they're not sure they're not able to yet do it. Now the challenge is do I accept or not? Don't let something the prophesy Selim said in the authentic hadith. There will come a time before the day of judgment that a person will be sitting on his comfortable chair, comfortable Rika comfortable couch where t m and one of my orders will be brought to him and said hi, Roz, who loves I sell them and that person will say
for you, but
one of the signs of a diseased heart.
Except some things maybe I'm not able to do but I don't really I don't just say I will never do it. I can't do it. It doesn't make sense. It's not right. When you know the heart has come from Allah subhana wa jahana therefore bar have this Cabul
acceptance then raises to INSEAD submission. When you submit to Allah Subhana Allah to Anna, you accept that you've learned you're certain you've accepted now I'm going to push myself to practice Subhanallah sometimes you have to break yourself sometimes you have to go further than you thought sometimes you have to push yourself to do something that you didn't think you would be able to master in the yard needs to lead you to sit truthfulness Why am I doing it? For who?
What benefit is there? First vena cava in Allah that said could between you and Allah breeds a little floss? Floss you know sometimes you have maybe Arabic friend he loses his temper she loses her last had enough that's really what if loss means right if loss means I've had enough of relying on anything anyone other than Allah, Allah still amarilla everything is for Allah subhanaw taala
after if loss isn't map the height of your EBA let me know I had you come Hatter your hip bully Fe May your head Bolinas, you cannot consolidate faith be a true complete believer until you love for others what you love for yourself.
Love becomes the height of our booty yeah to Allah subhanaw taala checklist that made me Tamia and we were just in the city of his birth. It's kind of Allah, the city of haram. Right? It may Tamia.
He said, when he was asked to define a little booty here, he said, commanded who it is to complete one's love
with Lulu, and to humble oneself because of your love to Allah and His commands.
By saying, doing and believing in your heart, everything Allah loves for you to say to do and to believe in your heart. That's really that service. That's the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. Love
is a valuable, valuable level in life. Few people actually experience it. Many people claim it right, everybody
talks about love nowadays.
But love is
a state that is attained by those who have a genuineness of purpose in heart. The prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam was the greatest lover of Allah azza wa jal, he is Habibollah and the most loved by Eliza origin. The word hope in the Arabic language comes from two letters. Now, the letters in the Arabic language every letter has it has a gateway to meaning when we were visiting.
Or we saw the cable of Ibrahim the cable show Ieave the cable or the claimed cable via a U.
And I said, Well, you know the letter Caf in that language of the error, it signifies a source of protection right? So any word that begins with the letter Cafe usually connotates that this is somewhere that you're going to find protection or the letter that begin with the cat right? And you can do all the letters have different meanings. So the letter sheen
give me words that begin with the sheet shadow
chances I KNOW THAT ONE
Show Man Yes, yes, yes. Give me my show, man. Yes, but as
shahada what else? Oh, the evil one what's his name? Okay, so what are all those yummy look at how wide we've gone? shows a bong shujaa We're all them have in common
Yes, things that spread mashallah it's true things that spread the tree spreads its leaves its wings spreads its Vologda its hydrates group it goes past six shots a chance to shore erode it sends its range further than itself right share your plan seeks to spread what evil right all of the words with the letter sheet have that connotation.
how do you say somebody is dealing with it an individual
matter Masha Allah, Allah Allah Allah mineral Tibet with heavy somebody whose mind is not non present what other words begin with
what else like why?
Why am shuru Ramadan what else?
What else? All those words what do they have in common? And any other word that begins with
something hidden? Something unseen? Something unattainable? The opposite of what I mean is what the ledger line has a dog What's the opposite letter? i What does it mean? I instead of a body
right instead of very
Xena somebody you know your wealth. You don't you don't need others. A loss? I don't need anyone. I'm reliant. Right. So letters have important meanings. The letter has not had.
Alright, it's not Al hamdu it's L. Okay, put your fingers here.
Yeah, it's comes from the bottom. It's actually one of the most difficult letters in the Arabic language in combination. Hmm, right. Not hair. Hair. All right.
I'll handle it not heavy. It's heavy.
Not like the movies. Okay. The letter had is very difficult to pronounce. And the man with no claim he says, enroll button my beam and the amount of time he's got four volumes about the garden of the loves all Alala club. The garden were lovers me Masha Allah to
make you blush. Even if you're dark skinned like me.
Some of its sections.
The letter Han
is a difficult Letter. Love is difficult to come by. It's rare. It's not easy. It's not easy to find. Not easy to keep not easy to share. The second letter is Beth, but that every language every ethnic origin, every linguistic
cultural language has the Baba Baba babbling. It's the first thing your children will say
because it's phonetically easy, love is easy to be lost, easy to depart right. And you might even find me says that the out of when they chose words to describe love they spoke about the seen death have. So hope is a llama had isn't with a llama because love can never be in full bloom unless it grows from a seed with hard work. So the imagery of love is that it's something hard to find hard to keep requires regular maintenance. It's like the habit of somebody who plants a seed, but it has to go in something for title. It has to be in a heart that's been prepared the route the weeds have been taken. It has enough access to the sun and emotions that are going to develop it. It hasn't
regular irrigation it has regular visitation. It's not the fruits aren't snatched from the tree as soon as they bud you take don't take the fruiting flower too early. You need to let it grow and the stalk and becomes a trunk and the leaves
because if you take it before you lose it you destroy it. If you seek to have love before love is in bloom. You haven't received love you cut the pathway to love to short and therefore the miles mean that people perform in seeking love causes them never to find love and Imam Al Qadir al.
He said before our he died, we searched for love in all of the wrong places and could never find it. We found moments of joy that left
well Emma had an Allah but when Allah guided us to the dean of the prophets, I send them to the truth that the love we had became permanent, that something is deeper, that is within that is not easily depleted. Love is significant. The other meaning of the word habit comes from a softer
so there's ancient Arabic poetry about Had that been s&m? the whiteness of the pearly teeth, you know, it's pearly white teeth. So there's ancient Arabic poetry pre Islamic poetry where you know, a man and woman they're like falling in love with each other and she would say don't put your hand near me and destroy the love that is between us. We're not meant for each other yet. It's not time, right? You're gonna end our love before it's too soon. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very conversant about love. And love was a regular theme in his talks in his discussions in the Quran. There's numerous places where Allah tells you what he loves, what He does not love. What
Jelani Shammi there is no similarity between the love that we claim as human beings and the love of Allah Bucha parent I want to honor but you and I were aim is to find pathways with each other that lead us to the love of Allah. So whenever people come together in that which is loving of each other in a way that is pleasing to Allah, it makes a lot grow their love and grow their love for him.
So an example of this is the hadith of hope that and slightly hidden behind the Prophet sallallahu it was
you don't have to like someone to love them.
I want you to pay attention to that. What What do you mean you don't have to like someone to love them. It's true.
For those who are married, you'll understand those who are not yet married what their hands earlier, they're like, oh, what does that mean? You'll see. Give it a couple of years in Sharla
Yeah, and the Subhan Allah there are my wife she loves the hell out of me sometimes she doesn't like it's true.
Doesn't want to I don't want to talk to you now. I love you but I want to talk to you. Give me some time.
What is Pamela
Love is a very strange thing.
Is love always good?
I'd like your answer. A Wait. What do you think? Is love always positive? Because today it's sold like that love is love. MashAllah
not us. Dunya Kula love happy. colo
is love love is love young Hello acids. Is it always part is it always a good thing?
Are there a set
Shen's in the Quran and the Hadith in the Sunnah of the Prophet Isaiah Lim shows us that love is not good. We're going to learn about some of them in Sharma
who told you love is always positive? Who told you that love is always going to lead you to happiness who always told you that love Subhanallah can lead to heartbreak.
Love can lead to loss of money, loss of reputation.
Love can destroy you beginning and end. Examples In the Quran many
Subhan Allah may Allah protect us
what's the difference between love that is pleasing to Allah and love that is not Ah, there's this word or he reminded me speaks about it's where a person believes they're in love but they commit the sins that end love and turn it into desire. Look at how Allah describes it in Surah Al Imran Zhu yin and in mass
bu a shout out Mina Nisa. What does that mean sister? Allah Subhana Allah says that you're going to be confronted with these types of men may Allah protect you that they will love that which they desire of you but not you
I know It's almost dinnertime, especially for my group who've been traveling with me and who loves chicken vegetarians aside right? Who loves it? No, honestly put your hands up mashallah we're all hungry right? Who loves chicken mashallah every everyone loves you. Do you really love chicken?
Or do you love what chicken tastes like Yanni fried chicken if I gave you a chicken I said hold this for me you out
what is this? You know you don't love the chicken? You love what chicken does for you.
You love to consume the chicken
some people look at you like a drumstick
mash oh look at this system mashallah delicious, drumstick, Masha. Somebody you look at your brother Oh, Allahu Akbar. That's, that's a rump steak.
They look at their loving of what you can provide.
Not you. That's a big difference. There's a difference between hope that is pleasing to Allah that may at times necessitate I love you but I don't like you. It's one of those very powerful Hadith that we misunderstand that Miss translate Allah rasool Allah salicylate call Allah. Allah said, it's a hadith Bootsy said that's what
Allah says, when we say Hadith could see a sacred text it means ALLAH said and the Prophet paraphrases in his own words. The Quran is Allah said But the prophet narrates it letter for letter from Allah, Allah.
Allah Allah will jump at my buddy My love is compulsory and wagyu. For who? To those who love each other feature learning because of me because of my majesty.
Like I remember shifting up from Hola Hola, Sheikh Mohammed profitability when we were sending this hail, fail to him in
Australia and we love each other. It's just loving, love Allah.
You think Allah is gonna give you His love just because you love somebody? It's convenient to love them. Why is that? That's not the challenge. It's to love the unlovable. panela somebody they don't show you the respect you deserve. But Subhanallah they are people of iman they are people of Islam they are
you love them for what Allah has put in their life with you. Pamela
the prophets I seldom said this about husbands and wives lay yet Cara who mean no believing man can ever hate a believing woman his wife
in what I mean her surely if you see something he doesn't I hate this. I don't like this. Let him look to something he likes.
You can't you can't be a believer and just think I can only love you when it's lovable things now yeah.
where would where is the truth then of the sunnah of our neighbor? Yes will allow us to love the unlovable in a moment of difficulty is a great thing.
Allah subhanaw taala put in the heart of the prophets I send them this kind of love. Well, the fourth one was Elisa Cole.
Yeah, Mohammed if you were hard hearted
meaning if you were incapable of loving them when they make mistakes, and if you were sharp tongued, every time they criticize, criticize, criticize, they would all leave you even Abubakar would walk away maybe, or the hola Ana Sahaba.
So love is an important concept for us as Muslims. Stories
are the teaching mechanism, that all human cultures were blessed with by Allah as a sign and miracle of our creation. So when Allah subhana, Allah says,
otherwise, man, I lemon, hello insan al lemma hula, Diane began here it means to give information that can be retained passed on to others. The knowledge that you and I as human beings have that other creations of Allah do not possess. What elevates us above others is that we are able to describe complex things in simpler ways. And to leave knowledge for those who can come without us present who can decipher it began to give elucidation and invite others to that which we are not present at that moment to understand thereafter. And subhanAllah that's why we marvel at travel. You know, when you travel, and you visit Google, you know, we visited Subhanallah amazing sites, we
visited a city 12 years old, see symbols and signs.
In our ability to communicate with each other, it allows us the opportunity to transmit information to one another. And so we have always been the greatest teaching mechanism from one generation on conveying knowledge of future generations in a retainable way. So the Quran is full of puzzles, not stories, but narratives discussions, where Allah Subhana Allah uses the Quran to correct what was corrupted, to introduce what was not formally present and to give new information that have not been understood previously. When human beings want something that they can all appreciate. The easiest thing for, for us to see is the family structures. So in
the number one teaching mechanism is that Allah uses families as a teaching vehicle. Think of any family familial structure and I'll give you an example from the Format anything if you want a husband and wife who love each other cooperate on the truth, Ibrahim Hassan, masha Allah
a husband that wife at odds with each other
are you buddy is Salaam and at certain periods of times decade era you Salah
then you find an example of a righteous husband, an oppressive tyrannical, unjust disbelieving one, no one thought of Allahumma Santa little Medina Cafaro Murata no Hanumangarh Tolu an example of a righteous woman and an evil man
and it example of brothers who love each other and cooperating good.
An example of brothers who have hate and jealousy, use a value system, an example of a brother who's been wronged and his rights have been taken who forgives use of
an example of an uncle and nephew.
an example of sisters who are righteous protecting each other and helping their father when they have no one else to help.
Dodgers have shown
an example of a single mother
Maria Maria Sarah, an example of a foster mother.
Move Sally is the mother of Musa she's his foster mother, the wife of
an example of an adopted son,
felon Tada. They don't they who used to be called Zeytinburnu Muhammad
every example godliness if you have the Quran mean Colima
said and there's many many others. Now what if you find something in the Sunnah in the Hadith in the Quran, you say, oh, but there's something still, when maybe something look at the, the marriages of the prophets I said
he married a woman who was far older than him that no longer needed carnal activity with him. So without the Allah Allah Allah woman what meaning he married one who was younger than him, and who had not known a man before him, each other the Allah Juan, he married a woman who was from a different culture, different language, new to his country and city. Maria
he married a woman who was previously a Jewess have a friend or a previous faith who enters into his faith, for failure been to her yet yet, or the Allah one, he married a woman who was married before him with many children.
Setting the above and how Allah He married a woman who is wealthier than him previously married before him, the job with your loved one, how alibi.
All of the different marriages of the prophets I seldom were done for purposes to make what for us? clarity that you can at any time be able to find in whatever circumstance you're in an example in the Hadith in the Quran, that gives you a sense of light and a sense of similarity to your condition in your state. We're going to end we have the last 10 minutes according to that clock. With the story of Adam alley, his salah, which is I know that was a long introduction, but it was necessary. Right? What good they're telling you the story is unless you know the context, right? Usually I teach this over a full day program. By the way, we're only going to take a few lives of the MBA.
We're going to begin with Adam and Hawa
Adam Ali Salaam is created by Allah.
He is the first human being that is like you and on. This does not mean he is the first non ape or the first
primate to walk on two feet. It does not mean he's the first to have a similar genetic species a genetic similarity to us and not other things.
It is in our tradition and our belief that Allah who rob boll alameen and I mean is a significant statement. There were number of realms number of worlds number of creation on this earth before Adam and after. And when you read some of the early amorphous serene and some of the later
amorphous serene, when we speak about the question is did ham of the angels they say when Allah says in Niger I don't fill out the Khalifa. I'm going to place upon the earth of creation, who is Khalifa meaning is that lava comfy her that one generation will live and then they will have children and another generation after them. The angel said hard to attach geography her name you see Doofy her well yes we could demand our Lord Allah, not in rejecting what Allah is saying. But in asking for an understanding. They see what has happened the gym while John HELOC now whom in the Jan were created, there were other intelligent beings who lived upon this earth. And not just the gym in Dayton, Ohio.
Bhumika theory speaks about less than others right other creatures who walked the earth lived on the earth before human beings.
So Allah says in the alum Meloetta demo, I have created a creation not because you've seen others who just shed blood and it will cause corruption, that is all that Adam and his offspring will be worth. While Corona buddy Adam, I'm going to ennoble the children event. They will have one others before that did not have
you and I as human beings are known are described by Allah with two features one cognitive and one physical.
The cognitive incent a lots of panel data sets and sort of blow it out. I hasten to add them in Corfu, panacea. I gave an order I gave a covenant I gave a promise to Adam, and he was ordered to maintain sanity. He's forgetful.
Well imagine level asthma. There is no constancy in Adam and his children. So Allah sent us what to offset our needs.
And our forgetfulness. Allah sent us avec. That's that's why we have the word, the remembrance to remember to remember who is Allah, then you will be questioned by him that you will return to Him that there's a day you in a judgment what the maintenance of the atma. So one description is cognitive the other description is physical. We are Basha. We are furless
furless. You know, Lucy, you know, there's this ape looking standing tall, found in in the heartlands of Africa and Ethiopia, I believe. They said, this is you know, in the fossil record one of the earth so when you look at how they depicted the model of what they think she looks like, she's standing for foot standing on two feet, but for covers her body
there's a certain point where Allah subhanaw taala creates Adam.
Adam is not as the others may have been. Allah creates Halak to get created.
And one of the reasons of rebellion of the shape on is that the CHE Bong looks at Adam as being what
Yeah, Allah I'm the leader of the DJ I've been worshipping the hadith of is going to be so I sent him that IBLEES had been a worshipper of Allah that he became describable as angelic. So when Allah speaks about the angels included in their habit, he's not an angel in Hulk, but in his hook in his behavior mannerism.
Adam Alia, Sadam is created by Allah.
Allah subhanho wa taala. creates them while lemma de Mille ESMA. Allah teaches Adam nomenclature, the ability to describe and title things. See, it's not names of all things. It's not like yeah, apple that. Remember we said hello, Apple insan a lemma hole.
So what is Adam able to do, he's able to say this
is not just an object, this now has a title that can be taught to others. Now, when you give things nomenclature and titles, and you're able to describe things because of their names, it changes the processes interchange and allows language to form in that sense. So Adam, it is Sudan is taught the ability to converse, to describe to share information with others.
So Allah says to the angels eventually.
Here is the Adam that you were complaining about. He's different, as I told you in the demo meant that Adam
Adam Alayhis Salam is in Jannah, which of the genders allow Adam in our books of discussion. And in the Hadith of the Prophet Isaiah, there was a hadith of Ali Baba and Buhari had your Musa add Musa and Adam had an argument
in the next slide, and Musa says, A ha ha, you got us out of Jinnah.
So Adam says, You complain about something that was written for me before my creation? Yeah, me, Allah. Allah said in Niger, I don't fail.
Yeah, it's not me. Allah subhana wa Tala gave us choice. And I know I made a bad choice. I know. But don't hold me that I am was an angel. I'm not an angel. You know, when somebody does wrong, if you don't
treat them with fairness, their natural assumption is you're burdening me more than I should. Why should I care? So rather than saying you're putting me at a level that I should never be thought of? I was never meant to be in Jannah forever anyway. Why are you talking to me about it?
He's not telling a love made me do it. He's saying Allah allowed me choice and I made a mistake. Allah BANA Volendam fusina.
Adam, is in Ghana either agenda on earth or agenda known to Allah Allahu Adam makes no difference either way.
Here's where love Masha Allah
You got everything.
But what's missing?
If I give you, you know, Appalachia
a deserted island with
everything you want, but living forever on your own? You happy now?
He wants to go he's going to scuba dive this one I can, I can feel it. You're going to be happy on your own.
The natural desire is I want I don't know just talking husband and wife, human beings as an act of torture is to put them in a solitary confined state for excessive periods of time.
Adam is like Yara,
I need someone
to enjoy the new ama that you have given.
So Allah creates for Adam from himself, however,
and Hawa is a blessing to Adam. They are in bliss and in happiness, they are unknowing of their natural state.
They are unknowing that they will be obligatory upon them to honor Allah in a way if they change their condition. So Allah tells us in order to live in Allah, let us a Euro Madea Coleman, Hatha Yoga, Yama, Rinpoche Allah will not change from you unless you do what you make a change yourself Adam and Hawa or the holy Jana Colognian ha Hi sushi to eat from it. Enjoy it enjoy while at Aqaba heavy Shuddha Adam you see that tree the angels indicated for don't go near it the tree according to our manifested in each man or yummy in in majority not in not immunity but in majority I love to do more that it's wheat
see wheat is something that you put one seed How many does it give hundreds right so the thought behind the test is Adam wants more and that's the entrance of the shaper
don't don't go there. You don't need this in the locker hell let's do it however
you will never meet you will never be with them I will always give you
by Wes was a la he Shavon Shavon whispers that the word Westwater us with Sophie Sedonas West West is West West Attabad it's a sound the sound of gold
you know what mashallah some of our sisters they go to the wedding mashallah
they're going to a wedding so they put on mashallah the Turkish
and then they walk through they want to make an entrance.
I'm here I've arrived. Pay attention. The clickety clack of gold in the Arabic language is called Westwater
us whistle you know is that oh,
you're a commercial lover brothers who are married they're like I know.
I sweater right.
What is straight on Comm with shaytaan never enters upon you with something that you don't already want.
What does Adam want? He wants more. The week more I want bigger things. And he wants forever. So shaitan comes in says in the hat shall Jonathan hold we're milking Diabla that tree the one who can dominate it will have permanency
and we'll have a kingdom that never depletes will have wealth and the kingdom that never deplete those are the two things that are the greatest aspirations for those who falsely hold hope in this life.
Nobody wants to live forever poor. You don't want to live forever with a bus pass. You want to live forever with a yacht? Mash. Nobody wants to live forever home with no money and nobody wants more. But you're sitting there like I can't move. I have all this gold and nothing. I want you to share your telephone wha moluccana Akademia that would that be? The moment this struck in his heart It was inevitable. Allah subhanaw taala shows
and immediately they are exited from the Mercy of Allah subhana wa
Ibla Mina, exit from the Mercy of Allah. Whether that law homeless or to homeless
It's at that moment their hidden, privacy became known meaning I now have to work for my bread, I now have to
be burdened with the difficulties of life.
Something that's important for you to consider
that Adam and Hawa are separated in this in this realm. When they are brought into the Mercy of Allah, they were in different places.
Adam doesn't just say, Yeah, Rob, give me somebody else.
Yeah, I mean, it's not. You gave me one before Yeah, Allah. I don't know where she is. She's supposed to be behind me away, right? I don't know. She got lost circle. Yeah, Allah give me one more.
Adam loves how well, the natural state of love begins in this moment. So Adam begins to walk the earth, looking for Hawa.
On a fateful day that we will celebrate soon, may Allah give us the life and energy are
nearing the sunset of the sun, the method of prayer. Adam is standing in a valley
for a half hour affair. He saw her so he recognized her.
It's our day of one hour of the day of alpha is the day that Adam and her will come back together for their relationship with Allah as the first time as human beings asking for forgiveness. That's why we make dua in all of us standing will full five Oh Allah, Rob bene Valentina and Fusa we're in lambda fildena What are hamdulillah pueden them ha sorry.
The travel a little bit spend the night in was deliver.
They wake up the next morning and they continue until they arrived in the Valley of Baca. The rally where they cried the Valley of Boca they cried for their mistake. They saw how difficult life is
so they were ordered and give him salah. And the first place that they put their forehead on the ground in regards to Allah with tech leaf becomes the land of the cabin. The cabin its walls are not what significant. It's the perimeter is significant. This is where Adam and Hawa began to worship Allah in a world debating will the Isley Nast levy the backpack mobile rock, the place of our first identity
it's a beautiful love story.
Adam becomes the one that you and I as men seek to aspire to be like. We He is also the one who we are warned not to be like so Allah in sort of PA and we end with this with the advent of salatu. The mecca of inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala says for Edie Gala, both of them ate from the tree.
Both duel Adam and his wife, but then Allah subhanahu wa to Allah. Then Allah subhana wa to Allah says, wow also
have battle favela. That one now there is an obligation of who made the mistake. Allah says, Adam disobey this load. So I warn you, my dear brothers and sisters, my dear brothers,
who are in charge, I'm responsible and obligatory upon you to be careful with the important relationship of all of the women in your life, property sell themselves before the Day of Judgment, you and I will have 50 that rely on us not 50 we marry right 50 That are reliant on us. daughters, wives, mothers,
you will be asked about your duty and the duty of those in your care. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us. We will continue with the story of Noah after Salah to panic a lot more behind the pressure due under Illa Island to suffer to relate for Solomonic Allah He.
So brothers we have to mess this year separately versus I'm Robin Robertson.
