00:00:26 --> 00:01:10

Al hamdu Lillahi wa wa Salatu was Salam ala Mala Nebia badda Hammerberg. Every year I choose a topic in order to discuss every single day between the four and the photocard. This year's theme this year's topic is going to be Quranic wisdoms and hikma to men of Quran, Quranic Maxim's and wisdoms, and today will be an introductory lecture about the reality of wisdoms and its relationship with the Quran. When our father Ibrahim alayhis, Salam was building the Kaaba, he made a dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he said, Rob BANA Weber I see him Rasulullah Minh whom you have to obey Him I Attica while you are near Mohammed Al Kitab. I will take metta will use a key him of Allah from my

00:01:10 --> 00:01:53

progeny. I want you to send a messenger this messenger will teach them the Book and wisdom and hikma, the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam asks Allah to send a Nebby that will be teaching wisdom to mankind. And when Allah sent our Prophet sallallahu ala he was sending them how did he describe him? La Casa de Manila who added me Nina is about her fee him Rasulullah min and fusi him yet to do are they him? Yachty he were you Ali Mohammed Keita, but we'll take water we use a key him when Allah describes the Prophet sallallahu. Either he was sending them he uses the same phrase. And he says, Allah has sent you a prophet from amongst yourselves. That prophet is teaching you the book, and

00:01:53 --> 00:02:38

he's teaching you wisdom and hikma so Allah is mentioning the Quran and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is coming with wisdom. When Allah speaks to our mothers, the wives of the prophets of Allah, who are they he was sending him What does he say to them? Were the coroner ma huge laffy Bucha Hakuna Minaya Tila he will ACHEMA remember all Mothers of the Believers remember what is recited in your houses of the verses of Allah and of the wisdom of Allah. Allah he will hikma once again, the concept of hikma and our mothers are being told think about the wisdom. Think about the hikma and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada tells the believers as well in the Quran was Kuru. Remember I Atilla

00:02:38 --> 00:03:26

he and hikma remember the verses of Allah and the hikma or the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa taala. So what is this concept of hikma? The word hikma comes from the Arabic hacker. And it's a very interesting word, because the real meaning of hacker is to control and that's why all the Arabs know what you call a ruler Hakim. So the ruler is called Hakim and wisdom is hikma. What is the relationship between ruler and wisdom? Because frankly, many rulers don't have wisdom. Right? So why is ruler coming from the same concept as wisdom? Because this is very profound, just like the Hakim controls the people politically, so to wisdom controls you ethically and morally, just like the

00:03:26 --> 00:04:11

hacking controls with law controls with the Army hikma controls with knowledge. So the root of hikma is to control and hikmah is the knowledge that controls you from acting foolishly. So this is why Allah is telling us to learn. Hey, come up. Now what what does hikma imply in the Quran and Sunnah Ibn Abbas made an interesting tafsir Ibn Abbas said hikma is to act correctly upon a correct knowledge in the correct time and in the correct method. In other words, you know the truth. You act upon the truth and you do it in the right time and the right place. That is what hikma is. So where do we learn hit come up from hikma obviously has many sources and obviously all of them go back to

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

Allah and Allah gives hikma directly and Allah gives hikma indirectly. Once again, hikma is direct and hikma is indirect by direct I mean you have it you didn't do anything. Allah gave it to you. Allah says in the Quran, what are called the artania Lokmanya. What Al hikma we gave Lokman hikma Allah chooses people to give hikma to wa t now hochma sabia we gave you a higher wisdom. Even as a child we gave Risa wisdom even as a child. So this is direct wisdom from Allah. But you can also attempt to acquire wisdom and Allah might give it to you indirectly as well. How does one acquire wisdom? Three points we'll mention today. Number one, wisdom is acquired from the knowledge of the

00:04:57 --> 00:05:00

Quran and the Sunnah, and this is what we're

00:05:00 --> 00:05:41

We're going to be doing in this series over here. Wisdom is acquired by studying the Quran. That's why Allah azza wa jal mentions the Quran has certain hikma the Quran has verses and wisdom and Allah says to the wives of the Prophet, remember what wisdom was taught in your households. So turning to the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and learning is wisdom. The Prophet CISM said to Ibn Abbas, he may dua to Allah, Allah Houma. Elimelech matter what will of Allah teach him wisdom and will and this means teach him the Quran and the interpretation of the Quran. So the first source of hikma that you can try to obtain remember, the actual source is Allah,

00:05:41 --> 00:06:26

Allah can give it to you without asking, but what if you don't have it? You want to acquire it, you ask Allah and then you undertake a journey, the first step of that journey, learning our tradition, the Quran and the Sunnah is the ultimate hikma the second to apply Islamic rulings in your life will bless you with wisdom. This is a profound point. When you act like a Muslim, live like a Muslim. When you absorb the ethical values of Islam and start acting in accordance with those values. Allah will give you wisdom Allah says in the Quran wala Marbella who should the who was the WA t now who look men who are ill? When he rose up as a young man he was raised up and he was firm was Stella he

00:06:26 --> 00:07:10

was straight as a young man this is Musa when Musa acted like a good man when he was learning Islam and then implementing it when he had in his life in his childhood ethical values, we gave him wisdom. What this shows us is that living your life like a good Muslim will allow you to acquire wisdom and by the way, this is very simple and true. The Sharia tells you haram and halal when you apply the Haram and halal you are applying wisdom in your life and you are acting with wisdom. So automatically you will gain more wisdom you will restrain yourself from what you want to do because you know it is unwise. And so by living your life as a Muslim, you will actually become wise this is

00:07:10 --> 00:07:49

the second mechanism. And then the third wisdom is also found anywhere and everywhere. Wisdom is found amongst people who don't believe in God wisdom is found as the famous tabula Qatada said it is possible and utter jaw Hill will teach you wisdom simply by your interacting he doesn't know its wisdom, but you will acquire wisdom from Him. Wisdom can be found in the creation from animals even it can be found in people who are researching any topic and this is why we have a hadith it's a laugh is authentic or not. It is mentioned in sunnah Timothy l hikma tool ball lateral movement. Some scholars say it's not an authentic hadith is from a Sahabi. Even if it's almost a hobby the

00:07:49 --> 00:08:30

concept is valid and we find it in student autonomy the Western Imam Muhammad Bharani and other books of Hadith al hikma to ball lateral movement, wisdom is the last item of the believer Hey through ma Giada wherever he finds it, he will take it. So this is a statement attributed to the Prophet system. It might not be coming from him it could be coming from a companion, but the concept is valid. What is this concept? Wherever you find wisdom, you should acquire it. And we learned this from the Sierra as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam benefited from the experiences of non Muslims benefited from the knowledge of non Muslims and he benefited and he told us specific

00:08:30 --> 00:09:13

things about knowledge that he benefited from them, as I've explained in other lectures, so these are three sources of ACHEMA number one, studying the Quran and Sunnah. Number two, living your life and applying the teachings of the Sharia. And number three, any other source that has wisdom and we conclude with a very profound point and that is, Allah Himself is Al Hakim, and Allah is Akram al Hakim in and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is the source of hikma Allah's Name and Hakeem means that all hikma comes from Him, and ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has described himself with wisdom through hikma and Allah azza wa jal says actions are wise and Allah has different revelation is wise. And so ultimate

00:09:13 --> 00:09:54

wisdom comes from Allah subhanho wa taala. And so when Allah describes the Quran, what phrase is used to describe the Quran, the Quran is described as HC Mattoon Baliga the most profound wisdom This is the description of the Quran. Hey Cameroon believer the Quran is the utmost wisdom. And so this series which we're beginning today, we're going to be taking phrases from the Quran that are wise phrases the whole Quran is wise, but there are certain phrases we can benefit from even more we're going to be taking every day one particular phrase, one particular snippet and we're gonna be explaining what the wisdom we can derive from the Quran is May Allah subhana wa Tada blessed us with

00:09:54 --> 00:10:00

wisdom May Allah subhana wa Tada allow the Quran to be a source of wisdom and guidance for us. We'll continue to

00:10:00 --> 00:10:02
