Episode Notes

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi delves into a complete, precise and elaborate discussion on the famous book – Kitaab At Tawheed which was written by Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab.  The book is considered as the spearhead in the renovation of Islam devoid of Shirk and innovations.

What is meant by Tawheed? Shaykh Yasir elaborates on the linguistic and Islamic meanings of this profound word based on the contents of the book and makes for a very informative listen.

There are three types of Tawheed:

  • Tawheed Ar Ruboobiyah.
  • Tawheed Al Uloohiyyah.
  • Tawheed Al Asma Wa Sifat

We also are acquainted with the definition for Shirk and the different manifestations of the same. Also, we are made aware of what is the trait that defines a Muslim and what are the characteristics of Jinns. Moreover, the concept of Taghut is one which receives explicit treatment and we are clear on the topic via numerous analogies.

00:01:16--> 00:02:03

brothers and sisters I would like to welcome you to the first of our classes of the explanation of the Kitab towhees by Sheikh Mohammed Abdul Wahab on this seventh day of June in 19 in the year 1999, corresponding to the 22nd of Sapa 1420 of the hedger. And I would like to, first and foremost congratulate you for choosing this type of experience for opting to undergo an intensive series of Islamic lectures and courses in sha Allah for the next two or three weeks. And I say that insha Allah, may Allah subhanaw taala reward you with sincerity and reward you with good in this life and the hereafter. And may He makes this series of lectures, a means of Baraka, a means of good for us

00:02:03--> 00:02:20

in this life so that we can worship Allah upon a battlefield upon a clear light upon a clear vision, so that we've made them attain the fruits of this worship in the hereafter by obtaining gender inshallah. And I would like to point out that this book he does so he's in my opinion, is one of the most

00:02:21--> 00:03:08

practical and beneficial books to study in our time, and that the author Mohammed did not do well have he compiled in this book, a series, or a group of Quranic is and a hadith that are related to each other, all concerning the topic of tawheed, which we'll talk about in a short while now the author. His full name is Mohammed Abdul Wahab in Israel, a man from the tribe of wavy, and he was born in the year 1115 of the Himalayas. Right now, the 1420, he was born 1115 of the hedgerow, which is around 300 or so years ago. And he is born in the city of the Year in Saudi Arabia. Well, at that time, it was called, called Arabia, it wasn't called Saudi Arabia. And he lived a life of knowledge

00:03:08--> 00:03:18

in the sense that his father and his grandfather, and his tribe was well known for knowledge. So he memorized the Quran when he was young, and he studied under many of the famous or the scholars of his time.

00:03:20--> 00:03:57

However, he noticed that in his countries in Arabia of his time, there was a lot of shooting, there was a lot of grave worship, there was a lot of acts that were prohibited by the Sharia and vice versa. So he started calling the people away from these types of acts and calling into the pure worship of Allah subhana wa Tada. And a lot of time it was either blood a certain person, a certain leader, or a certain ruler of that time to accept his hour to accept his his call, so that this rule is enjoined ranks with Mohammed and now you will have and Together Together they managed to unify the Arabia of their time, and also to prevent and prohibit these people from the types of shooting

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

and the types of innovations that they were doing. Now, Mohammed never would have

00:04:02--> 00:04:37

the person himself, almost everyone has heard of him. He is either loved or hated by almost everyone today, he is are all either loved or hated his enemies taken and that is the people that know this and that they love him. And I'd like to point out to you that this book of his avatar, he is considered to be one of the spearhead books that he used in his quote unquote revolution or his quote, unquote, renovation, not innovation but renovation of the religion of Islam. He renovated the religion of Islam in other words, such deed he brought it back to the original roots that it was another reason we're going to city this book in particular, while we study this book, I want you to

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

have a very open mind a very clear mind and see for yourself how much did the author himself speak and how much he left alone His messengers speak and see for yourself is Mohammed know what happened as it will have called calling for something which is new, or calling for something which has existed for 1000s and 1000s, or hundreds and hundreds of years. And you will see inshallah, that the author in this book, he is

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

Rarely says anything. All he says is Allah says this. And his messenger says that Alexa descended versus messenger says that. So how can it be said that a person opposes these type of teachings? Mohammed, did you ever have the person we don't exalt or glorify Him or put him above his status? No, he was a human being he lived and he died. So we don't worship and we don't exalt Him nothing of this nature. However, we say to those that oppose his message, not in defense of the personality of this person. But in defense of his teachings, we say to them, what you're opposing what you're opposing is the truth. And like we pointed out, like we say, over and over again, a person only has

00:05:37--> 00:06:12

to study the teachings of this person, and the teachings of the people before me, there was an attempt to realize that he did not come forward to something new. He was not the leader of a group. He was not the one who founded this group, or founded this movement. Unlike many of the movements that exist today that have specific founders. No. And this book that we're going to study today, in charlo, would clearly prove them. And I want you like I said, if anyone has any doubt in his mind, fine, attend these classes, and see for yourself, how much did Mohammed himself add or subtract from this religion? Or did he just present the religion against Did he just present the Quranic idea,

00:06:12--> 00:06:48

Heidi's pretending to go hate and pretend to the true worship of Allah Subhana was the island and the hour that Allah subhana wa, tada did through his hand was, was elected that was, and because of this, the whole continent, there's a whole tenants who love Arabia returned back to so he, after he was immersed in the concept of shoots of grave worship, of worshipping of dead saints of blindly following people, when Mohammed that will have came, he renovated the whole region of Islam against in this connection and this continent. And because of that, he was opposed by many of the people of his time, he was opposed specifically by the people who were in power, because they felt that his

00:06:48--> 00:06:57

dad will be a threat to their power, his that will be a threat to their stability. So they oppose him, and they got the help of the British against him. And this is a long historical, you know,

00:06:58--> 00:06:59

you know,

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

the history of it, we don't we don't want to get involved in. But in childhood, the gist of it was by the time that he passed away, and handed it out lots of times with other causes, calls this out to be accepted by the people, and how could it not be accepted because it was only a call to the return of report on incident, it was only a few like a rejuvenation, if you like of the real religion of Islam, after it had been for a long time, covered up by a lot of lies and deceit by the scholars at this time. Mohammed Yaga will have passed away in the year 2007, I believe.

00:07:32--> 00:07:44

And the year 2007 and 2006, excuse me, at the age of 91. A very ripe comes in at a very full life he lived, he passed away in the year 2006 engineers in the city of

00:07:46--> 00:08:10

the book of his like we said is one of his most important works. And inshallah we will study it chapter by chapter, sentence by sentence word by word. So that inshallah, when you finish from these three and a half or four weeks, you will have a pure total understanding of this work, which, like we said, is composed of only puranic. If he doesn't say anything at all it is a Sonic is and our hobby, all he did was compile it into this specific look and put chapters on top of it.

00:08:11--> 00:08:45

Now the system we're going to use in explaining the book is that I'm going to ask brother, who is to read every section of the book, every verse, every Hadeeth, one by one when we get to that section, and this is a system which is well known amongst the scholars is that this is the way that they explain the book is that one of the persons he reads the book to the to the person who is going to explain it point by point, and then the person he gives an explanation of what was read to him. Now this has a number of benefits. Firstly and foremost, it makes it clear in the minds of the audience, what is the text of the book? And what is the explanation by the person who's giving an explanation.

00:08:45--> 00:09:15

And the problem that I noticed is that I've explained this book a number of times before in English is that people would get confused between what the author himself said and what the explanation was because explanation obviously also contains foreign entities. So in order to remove that problem is that what I've asked for the EU to do is that he's going to read to me the book point by point at least by hiding it by if and then whatever he reads, you know that that is part of the book, and inshallah you have a copy of the book in front of you. So that you can also go back to that, and whenever I say is the explanation of the book, so you can make a clear differentiation between the

00:09:15--> 00:09:34

actual book and then the actual explanation of the book. With that, we say Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. Now he says it's okay. Okay, the author entitled his books to tablets to heat or the book of so heat. Now what is the meaning of the word though hate. So hate is

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

based from the root word what had to eat is based from the root word, what has what happened that under has a shadow on top of it, what has now what that means to ascribe unity to something, to ascribe unity to an object, what Hegel what that means to ascribe unity to something so he needs something or some concept or some person wants, so to speak.

00:10:00--> 00:10:20

Heat dense is the act of this is the act of ascribing unity to something. And when it comes to Islamic sciences, this was the linguistic definition when it comes to Islamic sciences, so he refers to the unification of Allah subhana wa tada if you like the uniqueness of Allah subhanho wa Taala when it comes to his lordship,

00:10:21--> 00:10:47

his right to be worshipped and his names and attributes. So so he then is that we single out Allah, we make Allah subhana wa tada unique, we make Allah subhana wa tada one in three concepts in three aspects. The first one was the heat of lordship, and in Arabic, this is called and I want you to write down these Arabic terms, some basic Arabic terms, I'm going to dictate you don't need a ruble via so he's a Ruby.

00:10:48--> 00:11:03

Okay, so he's a lordship, so he's a ruble via this. So here are this, this classification of though hate or just categorization of AIDS is obviously based on the Koran and the suddenness. The meaning of Cohiba rubia

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

is that Allah subhanho wa Taala is one

00:11:08--> 00:11:45

in the fact that he is the only one who created all of mankind and all of the creation, and he is the only one who sustains all of mankind and all of the creation and he is the only one who has control of all of the creation. So in other words, if someone were to ask you who who is your Creator, you would respond Allah subhana wa tada and this is still a Ruby. Yes. Okay. In other words, the fact that we only have one creator, and once that's famous, and one nourisher, and one deity who is in charge of the affairs of all of the creation, only one, this is something based on the Arabic root of the meaning of the Lord, you say, yeah, Rob, all my lords did from the same root

00:11:45--> 00:11:57

is so either will be is that the unity of lordship. inshallah, we will discuss that a little bit in more detail in the weekend section or the weekend sessions that we have on the outcome. The second category of potato we mentioned is what he does

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

for his Aliyah to his worship, okay, the second category is the second category of so he is still hidden. Ooh, here we go. So heed of worship. Brother, there's a space over there if you want.

00:12:13--> 00:12:14

And I think there's some less

00:12:16--> 00:12:41

that the hate of worship, what this entails, this is the natural follow up of the AWB. Once you have acknowledged that Allah subhanho wa Taala is your Creator and you only creators once you have acknowledged that Allah subhana wa tada is your sustainer and nurture and the one that gives you your life and your food and everything. The logical consequence of a logical follow up from that is that you worship only Allah subhana wa Tada. You can't take another one.

00:12:42--> 00:13:24

There's one doctor Yes. The logical consequence of the follow up of that is that you acknowledge that only Allah subhanaw taala has the right to be worshipped and this is called the Hasan ruhija that that the heat of worship, Okay, the last category of the heat is that the heat of names and attributes of Allah so still he's a smart he works the fact that's not means named subtracting these attributes, okay. So the towhees of names and attributes of Allah, the age of a smart will suffice. Okay, names and attributes. Now, what does this mean? Again, this is a logical follow up, somebody will be Yes, a logical follow up lluvia if you have acknowledged that Allah subhana wa tada is the

00:13:24--> 00:14:03

creator and the only creator this automatically implies that Allah subhana wa tada is blessed with certain attributes, certain qualities that are perfect and cannot be if you like, they are perfect, flawless, they are the ones that defeat Allah subhana wa Tada. For example, the attributes of creation, the attribute of knowledge, the attribute of power, the attribute of every single perfect attribute feel like it belongs to Allah subhana wa Tada. This is the cohesive it's not evil, is that we affirm for Allah subhana wa tada those perfect names and attributes that are founded upon innocence. And we deny from Allah subhanaw taala every negative attribute, every negative attribute

00:14:03--> 00:14:09

we say unless we have this attribute against something. So for example, Allah subhana wa tada first for himself. He calls himself

00:14:10--> 00:14:47

a Rahim that the ever Merciful individual of mercy, he calls himself Allah, Allah will will, that the one who knows the unseen, he calls himself Allah, which is one of the names of Allah, one of the names of Allah, Allah, and we were going to we're going to discuss the same issue around a little while, he calls himself as the one who forgives, he calls himself a Rahim, the ever Merciful, so on and so forth. All of these names and attributes, they form a part of Sophia that's not to say that we affirm for Allah subhana wa tada everything that he affirms for himself. And we deny from him all negative attributes. So Allah subhanaw taala has denied from himself sleep. He says that aku similar

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

to what I know that Allah subhanaw taala neither does slumber overtake him nor sleep. He has also denied for himself having this having a son or a wife. And he has denied this in very strong terms in the Quran, which is what this

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

Which which is what the Christian is accused him of, of having a son or a wife. So Allah subhanaw taala denies this because this is an imperfect attribute. Okay? So this comes under cohesion, it's not your society now

00:15:12--> 00:15:38

realize that most of mankind, majority of mankind, the accepted, so a letter will be yes, they accepted that the hate of lordship. So if you were to go to a christian right now, and you ask him who created you, he will thank God the Father, this is a crock of that there is one God, if you ask him Who is the one that gives you your life and the one that is offending you and giving you all of the all that you have a food and water and drink, he will say godfather.

00:15:40--> 00:16:12

Likewise, if you were to go to a Jew, he will also tell you the same thing. If you were to go to many of the different sects and groups that are prevalent in our time and in the past, historically, you will find that almost all of them, even the Hindus and you say the Hindus, they are either worshipers, yes. But you asked them, you worship these idols, yes, who created you and who created these idols? They will say, Krishna or Rama, whatever main deity, they have a Brahma, the The difference is they have different deities, the main deity, but all of the Hindus, they go back to one main God, one main God, they say the main God is Vishnu, or Rama, Krishna, whatever, they have

00:16:12--> 00:16:28

the one main goal, they'll go back here, and they say that all of these other gods they have subservient or under this main goal, okay. So So hey, there will be something, which is very, very few groups and religions have have denied even the Romans, who was the main god of the Romans.

00:16:33--> 00:17:09

And the Greeks, who is the name of the Greek, Zeus. Also there was I don't remember the name, but they had an equivalent of Do you realize the Roman take from the Greeks of the Greek that? Yeah, the Romans, they just basically took the religion of the Greeks and changed the names and the doctors, right. But the point is, there is one main God even in their mythology, there's one main God Zeus, my point that I tried to stress is this, okay, so his movie is ingrained in the very nature of man, that he realizes and acknowledges that there has to be only one God, one creator. Therefore, we find almost all of the religions on the face of the earth that are present, and those that have existed

00:17:09--> 00:17:11

in the past, they never denied God.

00:17:12--> 00:17:24

atheism has always been a minority. atheism has always been a mind minority, because atheism is what goes against this type of stuff. It's the opposite to this type of feel hates is a rejection of God.

00:17:25--> 00:17:57

Okay, and this has always been a minority, even in our current, believe it or not, the majority of mankind, as everyone knows, is somehow religious. If you were to ask him, Are you an atheist? Are you a Christian, the majority of American the West, they would say we are Christian, we believe in Jesus Christ or whatever they believe in. In other words, atheism has always been a small philosophy. And you find that even those countries that are supposedly atheist, they do have some types of religious beliefs, some type of religious act, even though they don't call them as such, because it's almost impossible to go against this type of stuff. Now, there was one religion,

00:17:57--> 00:18:07

though, that went against this type of hate, and they actually believed that there were two creators to gods who can mention who can lead to me this religion

00:18:12--> 00:18:46

illustrates exactly does illustrate the activity once against, you know what diversity is on the fire worshippers, okay, they reduce the policies or the policies and close them also in certain countries, okay? They worship fire, okay, this group, they actually believe into Gods, they actually believe that there are two Gods because there's a God of good and then there's a God of evil. Each of these two Gods is independent about an all powerful and all mighty, okay. And this is one of the very, very few religions that actually went against the his ever will be those faces all over them.

00:18:48--> 00:19:09

So like we said, this type of still hate, and we're going to discuss this in more detail next time. What does it entail? It entails acknowledging that there is only one creator, and one sustainer and one cherishes this one will be called for love. You know, the word love Arabic word love, everyone knows the job, you always call it into us in the draw, you say, Oh, my Lord, is this from this route, that we say that there's only one God

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

now, so he's a guru here?

00:19:14--> 00:19:21

This is where the majority of mankind has straight and fallen into error. Okay, what is something that will happen? What is it that will you

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

know, that's what will be what is the second category?

00:19:30--> 00:19:59

acknowledging that Allah and only Allah subhanho wa Taala has the right to be worshipped. This is where the majority of mankind went astray. Okay. Now, if you were to ask the Christians who created you, they're gonna say God before they get then you ask them, who do you worship? Who do you go through to get to God? Who do you think salvation lies and they'll say Jesus Christ. Okay. Likewise, you go to the Hindu and you say, Who created you or who created your Gods they will say, their main God Brahma or or Vishnu or whatever they have. Now, you will ask them who do you

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

worship and they will point to a million bucks that they have who worship this worship this worship this worship this. Likewise, every religious group or sect that you look, if you were to ask them who created you, they're gonna say the one God, but then you when you look at their act and who they worship, you realize that this is now where they're falling into error. This is nowhere to go astray, that they'll hate that we will hear that Oh, hate of worship. And this is where the danger point lies, not in trouble via because all of mankind, almost all of mankind acknowledges that Allah exists. And acknowledges even within a column, they don't call him by his name, but they do call him

00:20:31--> 00:20:35

by some name, okay? And they acknowledge that he is the true creator.

00:20:36--> 00:21:11

But now when it comes to the worship of this creative, when it comes to what do we worship, how do we obtain salvation? How do we enter agenda or the everlasting life or whatever they want to call it? This is what they fall into air and this is where they go astray. And they worship other than Allah subhana wa Tada. Okay. And likewise, when they do this, and this automatically messes up that that's the third category for his which is a smarty. What's the name three categories? What is this? This is because when a person goes through, for example, Jesus Christ, okay. This automatically implies that he believes Jesus Christ is more loving and caring than God the Father. So this is,

00:21:11--> 00:21:13

this is association of partners until he does.

00:21:14--> 00:21:30

When he goes to another idol and other deity, he automatically is what he is saying, even though he might not verbalize it, what he is implying is that this God or this idol, or this person, or this object of this treat, can hear my prayers and respond to them,

00:21:31--> 00:22:07

can hear my prayers and respond to them. And they matter better than the main God gods or father or Allah subhanaw taala, or whatever they want to call them. Okay, so the point is, every time a person falls into shields, which is the opposite of tornadoes, you're gonna get to infiltrate into here, this automatically implies that he has fallen into, into hate at this level. In other words, when you mess up, when you change around, when you destroy, who you worship. In other words, you start worshipping Allah subhana wa, tada, you automatically destroy the concept of the unique names and attributes of Allah. And this is why when you go to the Christians, why do you the Why do they

00:22:07--> 00:22:11

worship Jesus Christ because they believe that Jesus Christ loves them more than causes,

00:22:12--> 00:22:38

that they believe that their salvation is through this human beings. They believe that Jesus Christ can respond to their prayers better than God does. And this is this is a type of this is blasphemy against almost entire without it that there is a creation that is more knowledgeable of the needs of the creation and loads of more than a law, this is not possible. Okay. So my point is you have to understand these three categories of cookies, this is very important. And the rest of the series of lectures are always going to be referring back to this concept of so

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

you can get a table from

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

the table,

00:22:43--> 00:22:53

rest, the rest of our series of lectures will always need to go back to the contents. So I want you all to memorize them right now, how many categories are that we mentioned? Three, the first one is in Arabic.

00:22:55--> 00:22:59

The hidden Ruby? Ruby, yes. Okay. And this means

00:23:01--> 00:23:08

unity of worship. And the concept is that there is only one God one creator, one sustainer and cherishes. The second concept until eight is

00:23:10--> 00:23:24

UI, exactly UI which means that there is only one deity, one gods that has the right to be worshipped and that is Allah subhana wa Tada. Okay, if you were going to define worship in a little while also, the third category of so hate is

00:23:26--> 00:23:47

it's not able to define names and attributes of Allah subhana wa Tada. In other words, a lots of hands on was either has those unique names and unique characteristics and unique attributes that are attributes of perfection and glory and majesty. And he does not have negative or are attributes that do not okay. Now without where we start with the bookshelf.

00:23:48--> 00:24:28

Chapter One, though he the oneness of Allah. Allow the Almighty says will not call up surgeon will insert Ilya boon. And I created not the gyms and men except that they should worship me. Okay, in this chapter, now realize this book together. So he's right. So when are we going to study now the ones that are in front of the book that is in front of you now, even though he discusses all three types of superheat it concentrates on blue here, it concentrates on this over here, the blue here, in other words, that only Allah subhanaw taala has the right to be worshipped. Okay, so realize this from the start is that even though we're going to briefly mention all three types, we're going to

00:24:28--> 00:25:00

get there in this book, the main emphasis of this book is The second category is blue here. And we also mentioned that this is one of the most important categories that you like, because this is where everyone falls into. All of the other religious schools fall into error. Okay, so when we start from this book, you should realize from the outset, have in your mind that this book concentrates on the second type of self hate, which is that only Allah subhana wa tada has the right to be worshipped. So in this book, we're going to define worship. And we're going to define the various ways that a person wishes to partner with us the very

00:25:00--> 00:25:34

ways that a person must worship Allah started with Adam. And in this book, we're also going to define the opposite of this type of worship, which is shift, and we're going to define various manifestations. We're going to give examples of how shift occurs and how it is ever present in this moment. Now, the author will start off with six chapters. Okay, I'm roughly dividing the book up here for you, the author will, we'll start off with six chapters. Okay, the first one is a general introduction, which is what we hope to cover today, inshallah is a general introduction to Phil Heath and what is the hate and the importance of the next five chapters, in other words, chapters

00:25:34--> 00:25:40

226234 or 565 chapters, Okay, the next five chapters, they are

00:25:42--> 00:26:22

all of them devoted to the same concepts, and that is emphasizing the importance of the heat. So, even all of the three branches, emphasizing the importance of facilities. Now, these five chapters will emphasize the importance of each one from a different perspective. So much so that we when we finished with these five chapters, we will realize and understand the greatness of this concept, the beautiful or the very, the importance of this concept cannot be overemphasized. And we will understand that after we cover these five chapters. After these five chapters, the author then talks about the various ways that we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala of love and fear and hope and how and

00:26:22--> 00:27:05

how sugar how Association occurs in various manifestations and he mainly emphasizes the minor types of shape, which we call a circle, and the major types of shape will come towards the end of the book, we'll get to them later on inshallah. Now the artist starts off with the first verse of the Quran he quotes is one of our products agenda was in Philadelphia we don't is that I have not created men and jeans, except to worship me. Now this verse, this verse, which is verse 56, of Philadelphia, is the most explicit verse in the Quran concerning the purpose of creation. I repeat this verse is the most explicit verse in the entire Koran concerning the purpose of creation. No one

00:27:05--> 00:27:50

else in the Quran has the purpose of creation been so clearly defined? Have the goals of creation been outlined in such explicit terms? For Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I have not created man and jinn. Except, in other words, you ask Allah Subhana, which Allah has denied every reason for creation, except for one, I have not created man and gin except to worship me. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has negated. It has denied that there is no reason for creation except one. There is no reason for creation except once and what is that except to worship me in Labrador, except to worship me. So if someone were to ask you, why have you been created on the face of this earth, you feel the

00:27:50--> 00:28:06

responsibility I have been created to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. This is my goal for existence. This is why Allah subhanaw taala created Adam and Eve, this is why he created gender and now this is why he revealed the books This is why he sent them messengers, this is why everything that we know exists today

00:28:07--> 00:28:15

to realize this important the concept of this worship of Allah subhana wa Tada. So he is that the very purpose of creation is so he

00:28:16--> 00:28:52

we have not been created except to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then Allah Subhanallah goes on in this verse and he said, not only do Mohammed is, this is one of your books. Remember everything I say, you will not find in the book in general, but what what is it? What is the text of the book for the who is going to read to you. So there are lots of how to without it in the next verse after this verse 57, Alaska pilot data sets I have, I do not want from them any sustenance, nor do I want them to feed me. Rather it is Allah subhanaw taala who feeds everyone. Now, the point of these verses is that someone might presume, anomalous that he might presume? Well, in that case,

00:28:52--> 00:29:29

God, God is in need of us, because he wants us to worship. So in order to shatter this presumption, in order to remove this evil thought from a person's mind, a loving continues in the next verses, and he says, I don't want any substance, you can't benefit me in any way. I don't want any force from you. Rather, it is a loss of whatever it is, I will give everything too. So in order to remove this misconceptions that might possibly arise when a person reads this verse, Allah Subhana, WA tada then goes on, and he removes this, this presumption by saying that I don't need anything from you. I don't need you will not be able to benefit me in the slightest, rather, it is Allah Subhana Allah

00:29:29--> 00:29:59

who gives you all that you have? Okay. Now, like I said, this verse is the most explicit verse concerning the purpose of creation. Now, what is the meaning of worship though? Because Allah subhanaw taala he says, Here, I have not created man engine except to worship me. So the obvious question that arises is what is the meaning of worship. Now the linguistic meaning of worship, linguistically, from the word is either the linguistic meaning of it means to humble

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

yourself, to have

00:30:03--> 00:30:42

to have a sense of humbleness and submissiveness if you like to another person or another object. This is why a slave in Arabic is called advocate from the same root as yeah boo, boo, which is what occurs in this verse. The same we can say, the slave in Arabic is called an Arab, because he humbles himself he submits himself to his master or his owner, okay, the same route to Allah subhana wa tada thing I have not created managing except to worship me. And the same route of worship is also the same route of slave, in other words, is artists you have submitted yourself, totally your heart, your soul, everything to this creator, to this cherisher and Lord of yours. Now, obviously, how this

00:30:42--> 00:30:51

creation is how this worship is done, is that you obey Allah subhanho wa Taala and everything that he commanded you to do, and you leave everything that you feel forbids you from

00:30:52--> 00:31:03

you obey everything that he commands you to, do you believe everything that you prevent you from, and this is the essence of Islam. This is the essence of Islam. What is the meaning of Islam?

00:31:05--> 00:31:06

Permission Islam is

00:31:08--> 00:31:31

from the it means is to summon Arabic which means to submit yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala. In other words, to give yourself up to Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever Allah tells you, you will do it. Whatever you forbid you from doing, you will stay away from it again, while you're on the same concept over and over again, the aspect of worshipping Allah subhana wa tada the purpose of creation and the meaning of Islam. So a Muslim is one who has,

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

what have you been?

00:31:33--> 00:32:11

permitted to Allah subhanho wa Taala a Muslim. By the way, Islam does not mean peace. It does not mean we would sit down say if Islam stands for peace and the condition of Islam or PCs, but I think linguistically, Islam does not mean peace. Islam means submission linguistically, of course, the religion itself will bring peace in this package, and I'm not denying that what I'm saying is linguistically many people that have this concept Islam means peace. Incorrect, totally false. Islam means submission. Okay, so a Muslim is one word submitted himself, ie worship Allah subhana wa tada just like a servant or a slave does to his master. Okay. And like I said, this verse is the most

00:32:11--> 00:32:23

explicit verse concerning the purpose of creation. There is no other verse in the whole arc that is as explicit as this verse outlining the goals of creation aside point or a side benefit of this verse is that there are two

00:32:25--> 00:32:59

creativity species that have been given preference and status over others and that is the the species of man and the species of jinn. These are the two species that are lots of times lots of hands on with Allah has tested with intellect, and with a type of freewill. Okay. No other species has been given the type of intellect and freewill that man engine have been given, even angels. They have not been given the type of freewill in which they can dissipate a loss of time that was done, even though they are more holy than men, yet they don't have a free will to disobey Allah. So Allah indeed, in this verse, he mentioned two categories of creation. Even though Allah created

00:32:59--> 00:33:36

everything, he created the trees, he created the stars, he created animals, insects, he created the angels. But in this verse, He only mentions to access a Christian or two points of creation, man and jinn. The reason being that he mentioned these two, above all the rest is because only these two have been given a type of freewill and inshallah, we're going to discuss the concept of others and one of the weekends predestination and that they have been given the intimate animals don't have the separate interest. Animals cannot think and reason for themselves. Man and Jen, on the other hand, do have the type of intellect. This is why animals and angels and all of the creations they can

00:33:36--> 00:33:56

never disobey Allah subhana wa Tada. Never ever, they cannot possibly disobey Allah subhana wa, they're always under the commandment of Allah. Whereas mankind and jinn, these are the only two people creation and species because they have been given free will, they can disobey Allah subhanaw taala if they choose to do so, and this is the last and this might be here after they do so.

00:33:58--> 00:34:17

Again, we're going to discuss the concept of predestination and then Free Will in more detail in one of the weekend sessions inshallah. Now, everyone knows what nine is. Well one of them what is the Jin Jin has made a gin is basically another creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala which he has hidden from us, we cannot see it. We cannot communicate with it in general

00:34:18--> 00:34:54

that he has created from a smokeless fire ad which existed before mankind was created. gin was created before mankind. Okay, how do we know this? Very good that either Malik Salaam was made after shavon shavon existed when Adam was created as JSON was of the angels of the jinn. He was of the jinn, he was not of the angels he was of the jinn. How have you been of the angels he could not disobey Allah subhana wa Tada. But because he was of the jinn when Allah commanded him to Prostrate to Adam, out of arrogance only out of arrogance he refused to prostrate to illustrate it with us, okay. So we know them that the jinn are a separate species a separate creation that Allah subhana wa

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

Agha has created, he has given them certain powers that he has not given us and he has given us certain powers that

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

He hasn't given them okay you understand that, that Jin has certain powers that we have not been given of those powers or that they move very fast is that they cannot be seen by us, they can transform the shape and form okay. And of the power that we have been given over them is that unless pattern has given us the control of, for example,

00:35:18--> 00:35:44

any certain certain animals that the gingers are control of Allah has created for us, for example, the ship eliminations and many verses He has created for us to ship, the vessel that ships that sail in the ocean, you know, we have control over certain things that they don't have control over. Likewise, Allah subhanaw taala has blessed mankind with a greater intellect than that of the gym, even to both our intelligence but mankind is more intelligent in general than the genome genes if you like you're more of a brute force, they're more like you know,

00:35:46--> 00:36:14

of a brute nature if you like more of an animalistic nature, mankind is a more refined, if you like instinct, more intellectual than the gene. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala has preferred of the tool, he has preferred mankind over just how do we know this? How do we know that Allah has blessed mankind origin? Yeah, exactly that he tells them that I can the gene, he tells them to perform says that to others. So, this shows them that the gene or the left or inferior nature to mankind even though both like we said, have been given the types of free wills

00:36:16--> 00:36:58

even for both like we said, have been given a free will for your information and appointed benefits. Whenever you find the two letters jeem and noon, gender, whatever you find gene a noon in any Arabic phrase that come together, know that this word has an aspect of hidden that is hidden from mankind. So for example, Jin right, the reasons they are as they are called Jin is because they're hidden from our sites. Genesis, which is the garden of Paradise is called gender because it's hidden from us. We don't know if it's in the hereafter. Likewise, the embryo in the mother of his stomach to the stomach of his motor, excuse me, is called Janine. Okay, Jen from the same boots agenda Jenny, okay

00:36:58--> 00:37:24

that you cannot see it. Okay. Likewise madness is called jinda with a custom agenda Jean, why because you cannot see the madness it's something that is hidden from you. So, appointed benefits that every time these two letters GM and noon they occur next to each other in any word of the Arabic language realize that there is something that is hidden and there was this word implies something that is hidden. Okay, now, this was the first person that we want we wanted the second one inshallah English.

00:37:26--> 00:37:34

And he stated and barely we have sent them on every oma a messenger proclaiming worship a lot and avoid ports.

00:37:36--> 00:38:11

Okay, that's text. The next verse or the second verse that the author mentioned is the 36 verses through sentiment, what up in the back, no SQL the Omega rosulip, an arugula widget and it will fold that one up for those that have assurity and this is the type of oath or type of swearing that Allah subhanaw taala uses in the Quran, which provides an emphasis to the fact Okay, obviously, Allah subhanaw taala doesn't need any emphasis whatever Allah says is true. But when Allah emphasizes something to put on, our ears should perk up. Does that Subhan Allah Allah subhanaw taala even though he doesn't need to exercise something, he is emphasizing something anyway to show how

00:38:11--> 00:38:47

important it is. So whenever Allah gives an author the Quran will output by time, okay, when maybe that by the Knights will blast by default by the dawn oh by the sun, when it rises, whenever Allah gives an oath, or whenever Allah subhana wa tada makes something more. In fact, it emphasizes something, then we should realize that what I was going to say is very important, because Allah is not in need of emphasizing something it is humans were needed something when someone says, for example, you say that someone's okay. Okay, who will say No, he didn't come in, you want to emphasize what you said, you will say, I swear by Allah, he did come for sure he came. So you need

00:38:47--> 00:39:20

to emphasize this to prove your truthfulness. Okay? But there's a lot of need of this type of emphasis. No. So when Allah emphasizes something, then the meaning of this is that what is going to follow is very important. So we should pay attention to, we should be careful what's coming next. So Allah says, What now, and if those of you that are artists, there are three assets in this versus the while, which is meant to give an oath or swear the lamp, which is a type of emphasis and the cause, which is the type of essence. So the emphasis are given in this verse, the beginning of this first. So imagine, Allah subhanaw taala is not needed any assistance. Have you given one, it would

00:39:20--> 00:39:59

have been sufficient to three in this verse. So imagine how important the fact that it was sitting in this room, a lot goes on, and he says, One 100 x now, that indeed we have sent in every nation, in every people in every tribe, in every every nation that has ever existed, we have sent a messenger. What is the purpose of this messenger? This messenger proclaims worship a lot and avoid false we're going to define folders in a little while. But the point of this verse is that it shows us the universality. He comes to the the there's no other word for universality. The similarity if you like are the same, the uniqueness

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

That every messenger came with the same concept as the messenger from the time of agony until the time of the Prophet Mohammed Salah LaGuardia, and then they had the same message, the same theme, the same concept over and over again. What is this concept?

00:40:17--> 00:40:23

worship Allah and avoid forwards, what is probabilistic code and then we'll go back to the verse, both

00:40:24--> 00:41:06

the root words of thought would imply, overstepping the bounds going going outside the boundaries. So suppose you have a boundary, you have a fence around the place, if someone were to go across this fence in Arabic, you could say, well, he went beyond the boundaries. Okay. And this route is the same route as Somalia as as far as what we're discussing now, so far, who then is everything that takes you out of the boundaries of worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala. Every object, every concept, every false deity, every audio, every person, whether living or dead, that takes you out of the pure worship, which is the boundaries of Allah, the pure worship of Allah, this thing is called for. So

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

for whom it could be an idol. Why? Because when you worship that, what does it do? It takes you away from the boundaries of what they'll hate, for what it could be your leaders in a way, if your leaders tell you to do something which is prohibited and you follow them, what are you doing, you are going out of the boundaries that allows you okay, but who is could be sorcerers and magicians. Why because they do something and we're going to come to sorcery and magic in a few chapters, okay, because they take you outside the boundaries of Allah subhana wa. Well, it could be a living person, a living quote unquote scholars and evil scholars, who misdirects you who misguide you away from the

00:41:40--> 00:42:19

true path. So for hutan is a comprehensive term, implying everything that takes you out of the pure worship of Allah subhana wa Tada. Now, after we have defined both everyone understands souls, everyone understands both, right? Is that every cause it could be a concept, it could be philosophy, for example, communism, okay, capitalism and its true essence in its in its full shelf, all of these type of philosophies, democracy in the shoulder in the in the in the way that we recognize it in the West, all of these types of philosophies are false. Why, because they take you out of the boundaries of the last panel, and they mislead you and misguide you away from the boundaries of philosophy with

00:42:19--> 00:42:45

data. So now we go back to the verse alerts, and how to add a space in this verse that we have not sent, or we have sent every to every nation, a messenger, we have sent to every nation a messenger, what was the purpose or the goal of this messenger is to emphasize one concept over and over and over again, is that worship Allah and avoid these false deities, avoid these false philosophies, avoid everything that will lead you astray from Allah Subhana Allah.

00:42:49--> 00:42:59

Now, the point of this verse, like we mentioned, like we like we mentioned, is that it shows to us it proves to us that every prophet came with the same message, what message did he come with?

00:43:01--> 00:43:19

So, this is the crux associate. Every Prophet came with the same message, like Allah says in another verse will not offend them the public and the rasuna in La Jolla in Thailand and Abu surah via verse 25, Allah subhana wa tada case, we have not set before you any messenger,

00:43:20--> 00:43:32

meaning before Mohammed prefer, we have not sent before you any messenger, except that we inspired him with one thing, La ilaha illa Allah, there is no god except me except Allah subhana wa Tada. So worship me.

00:43:33--> 00:43:41

Likewise, as soon as in verse 36, Allah subhanaw taala says, What up at the back neck equally omega rasuna is the same as in

00:43:42--> 00:44:02

different ways the same, it's the same verse, but it occurs twice in the Koran, excuse me, the same verse occurs twice in the Quran. So, student number 36, is also the same as the citizen number which was the verse that we're discussing now that we have sent in every community, a prophet who proclaims the same thing, worship Allah and avoid false false. Now the next verse,

00:44:05--> 00:44:49

as he said, and your Lord has decreed that you worship none but him, and that you'd be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shouted them, but address them in terms of honor, and lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy and say, My Lord, bestow on them your mercy as they did bring me up when I was small. Okay, now, the next three verses if you like, the author is going to mention three verses of the Koran, all of which are a series of commands and prohibitions, okay? In other words, they are very comprehensive verses in that they instruct mankind in if you like, the gist of

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

the religion of Islam, they are very comprehensive verses that they, they basically summarize Islam is going to mention three verses the first one of them the point of every verse,

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

Think of every verse is that Allah subhana wa tada starts these commands and prohibitions with one concept. Always. So for example, in these verses, verse 23, are certain it's law that your Lord has decreed. In other words, your Lord has willed that you will not worship anything except him. You will wish if none except him.

00:45:22--> 00:45:49

Again, and then and then I lost track of that goes on, and we don't have time to discuss the entire verse. But let's try to then goes on about treatment with parents and future treatment with orphans and children with other people. Their point is these verses they form if you like a summary of Islam, they summarize the concept of Islam. Now, how did Allah subhanaw taala start off these verses, by the concept of proceeds, that your Lord has decreed? In other words, this is the will of Allah subhana wa tada that your Lord has decreed that you will worship none except him.

00:45:50--> 00:45:53

Now we have to we have to realize something else is that

00:45:54--> 00:46:14

the way that our Shahada is structured, La Ilaha Illa. Allah is composes or comprises two aspects negations and affirmation. negation and affirmation. What do I mean by the third one who seems confused? What do I mean by negation and affirmation? Okay, what is affirmation? affirmation means, for example, to say Mohammed is standing,

00:46:15--> 00:46:55

Mohammed is standing. If I were to say Mohammed is standing, and affirming the fact that Mohammed is standing, obviously, but does this negate the fact that other people might be standing? I know in other words, if I said Mohammed was Mohammed is standing. How about Jesus is standing or sitting? Is there anything said about him? No. Okay. So this is affirmation. affirmation is, if you'd like to find the eloquence that you give it that you emphasize a certain aspect, negation. Mohammed is not standing. Okay, Mohammed is not standing. I negate the fact that Mohammed is standing. How about this? Is there any mention made of Xavier? Is he standing the city?

00:46:57--> 00:46:58

Everyone seems confused.

00:47:04--> 00:47:19

For the practical examples, okay, stand up. What's the name again? I'm not right. Okay. I'm good. Man is standing. Okay. I'm only mentioning our graph man here. Okay. How about senators? How about the brother? What do you think we said, What are you saying that your name was?

00:47:22--> 00:47:22

In a method?

00:47:24--> 00:47:29

Paris? Paris. Okay. How about Paris? Should I even mention parishes extending or not?

00:47:30--> 00:48:03

There's no mention me to Paris. If I say I'm gonna smell is Dundee okay. There is no mention made of anyone else the rest of the class is sitting in one extending. So if I were to say a lot is God, okay. Allah is God. This is affirmation. I have affirming that Allah subhanho wa Taala this course. But am I saying that there are other gods besides him? Or am I am I am I being quiet about them? I'm staying quiet about this. No other mention is made of other gods. Likewise, when I say I've got an understanding, I'm not mentioning Parrish parents might be standing or sitting. I'm not mentioning. I'm not mentioning I'm going to him. I'm not mentioning all of the other vertices. So this is no

00:48:03--> 00:48:17

mention is made of them. My point that I tried to get her questions from is that only by combining affirmation and negation, would I be able to come across with the full message if I were to say that no one is standing except that

00:48:19--> 00:48:22

Okay, now you're gonna have to sit down first. Okay. No one is standing except.

00:48:24--> 00:48:30

Now, what have I done? I have negated the fact that anyone has done this and has approved that only one person has done it.

00:48:31--> 00:48:59

Okay, everyone else is sitting down here. Okay. Now when I say there is no garden, except I have negated the fact that cannot exist any other gods. no other God exists. No other deity exists, except once a lesson kinda was done. Okay. The point is when you come up to determine what the point is, when you combine affirmation and negation, only then will you come out with the full perspective or the full picture this is the hybrid eloquent, okay? Am I making any sense or are you still lost?

00:49:00--> 00:49:43

Only by think for example, I go back to the Kadima if I say a lot is dumped a lot is worse. Well, just by this statement, someone could say well, so is Zeus. So is Rama. So is Krishna. Because all I'm saying is always god. I'm not saying no one else's gods. Okay? Now, if I say the opposite, Zeus is not God. Zeus is not God. Okay? Well, okay, Zeus is not God, but there might still be other gods. This is the occasion only when I combine affirmation with negation, and I say law either. There is no deity there is no God in Lola except for except Allah subhanho wa Taala. Only then Am I coming across with the full picture. Am I getting across the full implications is that there is no deity

00:49:43--> 00:49:59

worthy of worship, except for Allah subhana wa God. So in these verses Allah subhana wa tada says, Your Lord has decreed that you worship none except him. So this is negation as an affirmation. This is the point I'm trying to come across you But okay, is that Allah subhanaw taala first denies, he says

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

Your Lord has decreed that you worship none which means anything. You worship none This is negation. except him this is affirmation. So Allah has denied everything everything else is blacked out. And only one thing now is worthy of worship. That is Allah subhana wa Tada. Okay.

00:50:18--> 00:50:23

Further, we have temporarily left film for his back, okay. So we can move on to the next verse inshallah.

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

The very next day

00:50:29--> 00:51:04

and the law says, worship Allah enjoying none with him in worship. Okay, again, we've gone over this similar verse is that again, there's affirmation and negation. Okay, worship Allah. And don't commit sugar, don't worship anything else with him. And you will always find that the one that put on top of them, I feel hate. They're always combined affirmation and negation, because this is the height of eloquence. Like I said, if you were only to use affirmations, you would not be eloquent. If you're only to use negations. You would not be eloquent, if I say a lot in the guard. Okay. Someone might say there's still there are other gods besides what he hasn't been empowered to say Zeus is

00:51:04--> 00:51:28

not God which is negation, okay, or Rama is not God or Krishna is not God. Some will say, Okay, these things are not gods, but there are still other gods out there. Only when I combine the two, and I say, worship a lot and don't worship anything except their little law. Well, that district will be shaped like this person, only then Am I coming across with this concept. Still, he's that only one object when one deity has a right to worship. Now the next verse,

00:51:30--> 00:52:13

say O Muhammad, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited you from joining that anything in worship with him, the good and dutiful to your parents, kill not your children because of poverty, we provide sustenance for you and for them, come not near to shameful sins, whether committed openly or secretly, and kill not anyone whom Allah has forbidden except for just cause this he has commanded you, that you may understand and come not near to the orphans property, except to improve it until he or she attains the age of full strength and give full measure and full weight with justice. We burden not any person but that which he can bear and

00:52:13--> 00:52:36

whenever you give your word say the truth, even if a near relative is concerned and fulfill the covenant of Allah, this he commands you that you may remember and barely This is my straight path. So follow it and follow not other paths, for they will separate you from from his path, because he has ordained for you that you may become the pious.

00:52:37--> 00:53:13

Okay, now in these verses, Allah subhanho wa Taala once again, like like we said, there's going to be three series of verses which Allah subhana wa Tada. He has summarized the essence of Islam by giving a list of commands and prohibitions do this, don't do that. Do this. Don't do that. Once again, every time he starts to fuse the verses, he starts it with one team, one concept one topic. So once again, we see in these verses, Allah subhanaw taala this thing, Kelvin Mohammed whenever you see the word hole in the hole on it is as if it's a command to the Prophet Muhammad or center to tell them what's going to follow. Once again, it's a type of affirmation, not affirmation, this type

00:53:13--> 00:53:42

of emphasis is the type of emphasis Okay, that hold on. Oh, hello, Mohammed come. So look at the emphasis it says as a part of the process the loveliest enemies they come to me, I'm going to tell you something comes to me. To allow us to do Mahabharata book Malika I'm going to recite to you, I'm going to tell you what your Lord has permitted for you. Okay, in other words, these are the things that are permitted everything else besides this is a lot okay. And this is of the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada is that the prohibited things you can list them

00:53:44--> 00:54:10

everything that's not on this list is allowed. Imagine Had it been the other way around that the allowed things you could list them and everything besides is a primitive, there are infinite number of things that you can do in this world, an infinite number of things you can do. So out of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala D prohibited for us a certain number of things, so that everything else that is not rebutted is automatically de facto allowed. Okay, and just of the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. So Allah subhana wa tada says,

00:54:11--> 00:54:18

The Prophet Muhammad, tell them oh Mohammed comm I'm going to recite to you what is forbidden for you. What does Allah start off with? Allah says

00:54:19--> 00:54:56

that you don't associate parties with it, in other words, that you worship Him alone without worshiping other objects or deities besides Him. Once again, the point of these verses. The point of these verses is that every time a lot starts out a series of connected revisions, every time the summary is given a stamp every time it's done, given a few verses, a small summarized version if you like, every time a lot starts off with the same concept will shoot me alone, don't associate purchases, will should be alone, don't worship thought was, well should be alone, and we're doing it and don't do [???]. don't associate any purchases over and over and over and over again. The one

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

contest is it's as if it's banging into our head over and over again, because it's

00:55:00--> 00:55:37

So important, the carcass of the hay. And then Allah subhanaw taala goes on in a very beautiful verse, every one of you should read it and understand it that you know, be good to your parents. And don't kill your children out of fear of poverty. And also, don't kill other people. And don't eat the orphans property, don't eat orphans money until they become of age, and be just with people. And when you speak, speak the truth and fulfill the covenants of Allah fulfill the colonist as mankind. And then Allah concludes these verses by saying, well, I had a lot of stuff in like, this is my path. This is my service. This is my way to Allah subhana wa Tada, this is my way to agenda. we're

00:55:37--> 00:55:58

stepping up the street. And this is a straight path, what is the straight path? the straight path is the path that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us to take us on this license agenda, and it is composed of His commandments and his permissions. Okay, so the Prophet Mohammed bin Salman is telling people in the Koran through the forest service is my straight path. And the first commandment of this path is what's

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

the first commandment that is given in this series of verses that allows the carpenter says this is my path is still here. So then the Prophet is telling people who who follow this path, take this path well,

00:56:12--> 00:56:51

and towards don't follow other paths that will lead you astray from this path. Now the Prophet Mohammed Susana was one sitting amongst the companions. And he drew a straight line in the sense, a straight line he drew with a stick, okay, he says, This is the straight path, for example, he's giving it a parable or example, this is a straight path. Okay. And then he drew lines that go away from the straight path left and right to it. Using a stick, he drew lines that go away from this path, and says, These are the paths of his guidance, the path of deviation at the head of the top of every one of these paths is a devil calling to people to go away from it. Okay. The point is, the

00:56:51--> 00:57:20

singleton was the theme is one, the path of deviation on the way to worship Allah is one straight path, but the way to commission on many, the manifestations of the heat is one, but the manifestations of shirakami. Truth is one, but false it is many. This is why in the Quran every time a lesson title data refers to the truth, he refers to it in a singular form. And every time he refers to the evil or misguided, your first one in the plural form, a law called

00:57:21--> 00:58:02

the Quran he calls it and he called guidance, he calls it a light in the singular, knows what he talks about. misguidance he says, buruma the poor, any darkness is not just the darkness, darkness is why, because truth is one truth is one understand this and realize it put it in your head truth is one evils. And falsities many the way to worship Allah the way of this religion of Islam, it is one they are not different versions of Islam version 1.1 1.2 No, Islam is version 1.0. That's it since the time of the Prophet muscle sensitivity edition. Okay, so this is one, but the past of evil are going to be many. This is why a lot of hype out of this verse, he says, This is my path

00:58:02--> 00:58:08

fingerless, this is my path, fingers. So follow it and do a follow other path.

00:58:09--> 00:58:45

Why, like we said again, the path to Allah subhanaw taala is one. But the path to evil the path to health. The path to misguidance is many. We can't summarize them for you. But we can summarize the path of truthfulness, the types of justice department's philosophy. So when you understand the straight path, you don't need to study every single individual. misguiding path if you don't think when you understand the straight path, when you know your way, from point A to point B, you don't have to worry about all the other rocks in the city. When you ask directions for a certain house, you don't ask how do I not get to your house? You only asked how do you get to the house so often we

00:58:45--> 00:59:24

still think everything besides that, you know is going to lead you astray. Okay? Likewise, the truth or the patent guidance is one and the type of this guidance is many. Now the next verse, or the next, given this URL will be a long line who said whoever wishes to assertion the very will of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, on which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has put his seal. Let him read the statement of Allah. Say, oh Mohammed come I will recite what your Lord has prohibited from you, you from joining not anything to worship with him up to and barely This is my straight path. Okay, now this is a heavy 700 or a statement of agreements in which you

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

state that whoever wishes to see the last will and testament there will three years the last will and testament that the Prophet Mohammed solo said unless and upon which his seal was put, you realize in the old days they had something called the seals, which was a ring a unique ring, they would put that ring and walk and then they would stamp that wax upon the piece of paper that would prove that this piece of paper was from that person. In our hands we have something called signatures, okay? But in those times, that's something which is more authentic actually, because the signature can be imitated a seal. It is very difficult to imitate because every field is unique.

01:00:00--> 01:00:36

Okay, so you've named Mr. Wood he's giving a parable This is obviously it's not a physical field is getting a parable is that if you want to see the last will and testament that the Prophet Muhammad is the law for them. In other words, the revelation of Islam in other words, that summary of our religion, if you want to see this and he gives me example it's as if it's the last little part which is the pocket seal. Then he said he should read these verses also, assume a hammer a bookmark, as I say, Come out, recite to you, that which you don't have permitted upon you that you worship not accept Him and you don't commit ship with him. So once again, this this, these verses are this

01:00:36--> 01:00:42

heavy, showing you the importance of these verses down the last 30 seconds.

01:00:43--> 01:01:26

It is narrated, that's why they've been jumbled robiola one who said, I was I was writing I was writing behind the Prophet salallahu audio instead of them on a donkey. And he said to me, I'm wise. Do you know what is the right of alarm his slaves and what is the right of the slaves upon Allah? I responded a lot in his messenger no best. He continued the right of a law upon his slaves is to worship Him alone and never to associate anything with him. The right of the slaves upon Him is not to punish any person who does not associate anything with him. I said, Oh, laws messenger may not give the glad tidings to the people. He replied No, do not inform them less they rely on this

01:01:26--> 01:01:54

promise and laughs in their service to him. The above has eased as mentioned in the duessel here okay in this headache, which is whatever volume was reported by Buhari admission, and inshallah we're gonna have a class on the sciences have you learned that when reported by Bukhari and Muslim? It is the most authentic thing after the after the Quran the most authentic objector or text so we can obtain is a headset as reported both by Holly and Muslim it is it is one of them.

01:01:56--> 01:02:18

Why the digivice, the famous companion, the scholar of his oma, the prophet Marcus Adam said, when the scholars are resurrected on the Day of Judgment, why as an exhibit will be ahead of them by footstep. In other words, he is going to be the leader of the trilemma, the leader of the scholars, that's how knowledgeable modern German is, why did the Germans said that I was writing behind the Prophet sallallahu, I said, I want a donkey.

01:02:20--> 01:02:22

Now, the Prophet Muhammad said to them when he passed away,

01:02:23--> 01:02:40

he was the leader of Arabia. So this time, no disputes about that no competition from any other source any other tribes. He had at his at his disposal, the wealth of the entire Arabian peninsula of his time, the money of Caesar the money of Caesar and that hospital and

01:02:41--> 01:03:20

the goals of Caesar all of this was in the hands of the Muslims, all of the wealth of Syria, all of the trade trading caravans that were going forward, the artisan had full control over that, despite this path, because of his humbleness and his modesty, we find that he was still running on a donkey. And this shows you something about apostle hemicelluloses, when he could have chosen the most grand of horses, not just a horse, a chariot, in front of which were eight or 10, or 12 horses, like the Roman emperors and the Persian princes would do. But no, he is writing apart and go. And this shows you the humbleness of the farmer system has not only that, not only that, but this OCZ shared by two

01:03:20--> 01:03:54

people on the low end is the process of the ones that he would have had a horse for himself and a horse from wise. But no, he has a donkey for himself and he has wise riding on his back. And not only that, but the other princes and kings who would not allow another person to ride on the same animalism This is a type of what would I share my animal with you, but look at the 400 system, that he has a companion behind him sitting sitting right behind him which means you have to be holding on to him, you know, just like a person has to hold on someone look at the humbleness and humility that apocalypticism has that arrogance or richness. None of this existed in his life. It was a simple

01:03:54--> 01:04:28

math in this showed us an example of how to be of how we also should be living in this life. So why did they give it he was writing with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam on a donkey, okay. And other nourishes that is the ad that the participant said Yeah. Oh my god, I love you for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. Now imagine the consciousness of wise now that this is the Messenger of Allah telling him that he loves us to think of Allah. So why have you started crying when you heard this? And then the processing went on? And he said, Yeah, oh my god, do you know the rights that Allah has upon his service?

01:04:29--> 01:04:45

You know, the rights that a lot of departments have is What rights do we also listen to without? What is the concept of what is the the thing that we owe to Allah? What is the rights that you that we have that allowed upon us? So So what I've said a lot is messaging Obrist and this is the proper way to answer what you don't know.

01:04:46--> 01:04:59

When you don't know some things don't invent a response. Don't pretend that you know the response know why then given he responded, alone is messenger know best. I don't know. Alan is messaging. He was not arrogant to admit that he did not know

01:05:00--> 01:05:34

And this is a lesson for us to that when we are asked something about the religion of Islam. And if we give a response that is false, we give a life, that we should realize that a great punishment of us upon us, and said, We should get ourselves out of this situation, follow the example of wives, and say Allah and His Messenger, or he will respond, I don't know unless of heart that we should not be arrogant and forget our humility or humbleness in the process. So the process of them responded, well, I said this, he said, the rights that Allah has upon his service, in other words, the right that is obligatory upon us to give to a lunatic.

01:05:35--> 01:05:46

So the process could have said, the rights that arise upon His servants is that they worship him without associating parties with him without giving that worship to any other objects or deity without committing shifts.

01:05:47--> 01:06:21

And then he said, What is the rights that we have upon a festival? Can we even have the right to point them know that out of Allah's mercy, out of Allah's mercy, it is as if he is giving a type of transaction if you do this, I'll do this for you. Even though we cannot have any rights of entrepreneur Look, a lot of our creative he has given us everything that we have, our very lizer has given have been given to us by him, how can we have any rights upon Allah, we don't have any rights upon Allah, but out of a lot of mercy, out of a lot of blessings. Allah subhanho wa Taala has, it is as if he is giving us the type of transaction the type of deal is that if you do this, which is my

01:06:21--> 01:06:24

right, I will give you this and I'll call it your right.

01:06:25--> 01:06:26

Okay, you understand what I'm coming from?

01:06:28--> 01:06:36

So Allah, the Prophet Adam said, Do you know the rights that we have upon a lump sum? Well, as we just said, alone is no better. So the process of instead,

01:06:38--> 01:07:14

the right that Allah has, or the right that we have a part of luck is that Allah does not punish us. If we do this. A law does not punish us if we fulfill the rights that allows upon us, which is what's Koshi. In other words, if we practice and fulfill associates, if we implement those things in our lives, then the result of that, or the or the, the transaction will result in the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not punish us. So the rights that we're gonna have upon Allah, and like I said, we cannot really have a right upon Allah. But in his mercy, Allah has called this the right that we have upon him. Okay, that the right that we're going to have a point of love is that alone

01:07:14--> 01:07:48

will not punish any person alone will not punish any person who does this, in other words, who fulfill Sophie, so the process that I'm fit, or that should inform the people of this? Should I inform the people of this good thing? So the person says, No, don't inform them? Of course, they might become locked in I become lazy in the worship of Allah, and they might rely upon this, okay? In other words, even though this fact is true, and it exists, right, if we go and tell the Muslims that are not praying, the Muslims are evil, they're sinning, right? If we go tell them this hits, almost is going to come and deceive him. She's also going to come to deceive and say, Well, I'm not

01:07:48--> 01:08:15

committing Sure. So I'm not going to be punished. No, this is not what is meant by this heading. This is why the process that I'm told why not to cover people and why it didn't tell them until he felt at the time would be right and other people would understand this, that they will not be confused. Likewise, when we hear this hubby's right, we shouldn't go and tell it to the nonpracticing, listen, no, because if they're not even praying, if they're committing sins left and right, we should warn them too few of us kind of without it, we should warn them that there's severe pressure might be upon them. Once they become more knowledgeable, once they understand the rights

01:08:15--> 01:08:46

that Allah has, then we can inform him that of the text. And this is not hiding knowledge. No, this is being wired with knowledge that we tell it to the people who understand it properly. We don't call this hiding overtone. We call this telling knowledge to people will understand it properly and not misinterpret it. Okay? Likewise, if, for example, if you're giving power to non Muslims, okay, you're standing in front of, for example, a university audience of non Muslims or something, okay? You don't just start off with the wall. It's not allowed slavery, Islam allows the man to have full rights to some of those you have, you don't start off like this, you have to stop this and all these

01:08:46--> 01:09:18

types of things. But it's called wisdom. You're not hiding all the terms in which you are wise in what you present to your to the people. Like was it when when a Muslim just converts? Okay, you should have some something called wisdom, which is okay. You should have wisdom with it. Don't just overburden him, don't just tell them things that he might drag them away. No, you tell them things that he understands. This is not hiding knowledge against the district, taking into account the level of Islam that he has. Because that clear, this Have you don't use it to say that there's a hidden Islamism? Is it apparent to some No, this is there is no such thing as an hidden Islam does

01:09:18--> 01:09:37

have it After all, it is reported in body and listen, well as it did not hide it. He didn't die, you know, he still has great hiding, hiding, or else we wouldn't have it. He did tell us but he told it to the people who would understand it. He told us the people who have not misinterpreted. Now the point of getting back to the whole point of it is that in this Hadith, which is

01:09:38--> 01:10:00

the most explicit Hadith concerning the rights that Allah has upon us in this Heidecker process, and I'm only mentioned one thing, and that is that we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala without committing ship without associating partners with it, which is what Toshi So once again, this chapter here and this is the last piece of the chapter, this chapter here in general

01:10:00--> 01:10:27

is a type of introduction to the next five chapters and to the old books, okay, and that the author is trying to give us the importance of this concept. Now what do we learn in this chapter, we learned that the purpose of creation, the purpose are we sitting here right now, the purpose that we're breathing right now is to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. This is the purpose of creation. So anything that takes us away from this purpose of creation has indeed misled us a very severe mystery.

01:10:28--> 01:11:01

Anything that's misguide us away, there can be no misguidance greater than this. the very purpose of creation if we turn our purpose of creation into worshipping other than Allah, what greater loss and what greater sin and what greater crime can best be? Okay? We also learned that all of the messengers were sent with the same message. All of the prophets were sent with the same theme that associate from Adam Moosa, Isa Ibrahim, us as the Prophet you mentioned, that wood is not easy. As the Prophet you mentioned, he had the same theme, the same purpose in mind that's associated.

01:11:03--> 01:11:38

So this, again, shows you the importance of this concept is that even some other aspects might have changed how we worship a lot in the sense of your prayers. Not every nation had five prayers. Not every nation has the same dietary laws, not every nation has the same laws of hedge, you know, these things will change. But there was one never changing concept. And that is a concept of so he. So once again, this shows you the importance of so we also learned that whenever Ls aparecida talks to Philippine in the forum, he talks of it using affirmation and negation at the same time. And we described how this was the peak of eloquence is that if you affirm something,

01:11:39--> 01:12:14

you don't necessarily deny other things. If you deny one thing, you don't necessarily affirm other things, okay? Only when you take both into account that the law in the law is when God accepts the love. So you have eliminated all concepts of gods and deities, all for purposes of worship. And you have affirmed this concept only for one deity only for one being that is a lot of time with God. And this is a hypothetical. We also look at every time Allah subhanaw taala symbolizes the sound and a number of verses, he starts off with one concept that is okay. So once again, this shows you the importance of delivery. And we also looked at this idea of LOD that this is a rice that Allah

01:12:14--> 01:12:37

subhanaw taala has upon is the one like the main right, that allows uponor is the right that we worship him without associating purchases. Now the next five chapters we're going to talk about, again, the importance of selfies, but each time from a different perspective, this was like a general importance of Okay, now the next five chapters, we're gonna talk about various perspective, various ways of looking at your face, and emphasizing again and again and again and again and again, how important to him.

01:12:39--> 01:12:53

Okay, the brother has a good question that in the diversity of citizen and a loss of pathetic gives 10 commandments and prohibitions. Now, where is the right that the prophets was Adam has apparently not mentioned these verses,

01:12:54--> 01:12:56

we have to take into account that

01:12:57--> 01:13:35

a person cannot worship Allah subhanho wa Taala unless he acknowledges the Prophet of the Prophet Muhammad, Allah is no person and worship Allah, except through the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu. How is the person gonna know who Allah is? How's he going to know? What are the names of attributes, attributes of Allah? How is he going to know what Allah commanded and COVID is prohibited him from doing? So we say then that neither is a law automatically implies Mohammed Rasulullah How can you say that it Allah Who taught you this is founded upon the sooner and who fought the Quran Sunnah, who is the one who Allah revealed according to the Prophet Mohammed Salah Lord. So we say that that

01:13:35--> 01:14:10

this question or this point, the prophet Mohammed system and the rights that the Prophet had, this is implied automatically implied in the verse, and it's obviously mentioned exclusively in other verses and other headaches, right? Clearly, exclusively, like the prophets have said in a hadith that I swear by him in whose hands is my soul. There is not a single Jew or a Christian, that hears about me reading the Prophet Mohammed system and dies without believing in me, except that he will be able to fire Okay, so there are many explicit Quranic ideas and a hadith concerning the fact that we have to believe in the Prophet and the rights of the Prophet and all of these aspects. However,

01:14:10--> 01:14:25

in these particular verses, we say that it is implied for how well for example, in the verse supposed to tell them well, who is Allah telling them to tell them is telling the Prophet Muhammad for them to tell them okay, so it is implied in these verses it is included and is not necessarily included in these verses.

01:14:26--> 01:14:59

If Islam means submission and not peace, and What does Muslim mean? Muslim means one who submits himself, okay, Muslim, and Muslim is one who has submitted himself in other words to Allah subhana wa Tada. Now when I say Islam does not mean peace, like I said, I want to clarify this. Islam doesn't mean linguistically some does not mean peace linguistically, and other from a language perspective. Islam does not mean peace. Islam means submission. Okay, however, obviously, Islam. If a person practices Islam in the proper way This will bring about peace in this life and of the hereafter.

01:15:00--> 01:15:32

Okay, but it does not mean peace linguistically. Likewise a Muslim is not one who is peaceful No. And even though he is peaceful, right, but in wisdom does not mean one who is peaceful. You see what I'm trying to say, linguistically a Muslim doesn't mean a peaceful person. inshallah Muslim is a peaceful process, you know, like the process of the Muslim is one whom other movements are, are safe from okay from his tongue from his hand. In other words, no Muslim is going to cause harm to another Muslim. But the point is, linguistically a Muslim is one who submits himself to ally in other words, the MR self to the worship of Allah subhana wa
