Alhamdulillah Hilah they had originally had a one male can nerdy Natalia Lola and then Allah
Al Hamdulillah Hamdan Kathira Al hamdu, Lillahi Rabbil Alameen, all praises due to Allah the Lord of All the Worlds. All praise is due to Allah Who has guided us and we will not have been able to guide ourself, ourselves had not Allah chosen to guide us all praises due to Allah Who has revealed the Scripture unto his servant, and has made no crookedness there in.
If we just briefly pause on the last verse Alhamdulillah Hilaire De Anza Allah Allah Abdi Hill Kitab, O Allah, Allahu Elijah.
He's revealed all praises due to Allah Who has revealed the scripture on to his servant, and has made no crookedness there in
in this great station of Revelation.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being the last human being in the history of humanity, to have revelation conferred upon him in this great, great,
Allah honors His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by referring to him as his servant.
And Zillah Allah Akbar de Hilde keytab
the station of servitude. Nakamura rudia is one of the greatest stations we can attain to. And the essence of our religion, to a large extent, is actualizing the station of servitude
because to the degree that we actualize the station of servitude for ourselves Topkick al Budimir the n fusina. Then we actualize the station of Lordship to Allah subhanho wa Taala Turkic Rubia Leo Robina
says an inverse relationship and to the extent that we are actualize illusion narrowly not in reality, or so Let's rephrase that to the extent that we do delude ourselves into believing we have some lordship. Then we negate our servitude to Allah subhanho wa taala.
And this is very important because we live in an age of negation of our servitude to Allah. And this is why you see the proliferation of atheism. You see the proliferation of rebellion against the law. You see Muslims declaring things that the entire OMA
All of his history to this point has declared to be haram forbidden to be halau. Muslims,
because of the distance
of this Omar, generally speaking, from actualizing, its servitude to Allah subhanho wa taala, the Lord of All the Worlds. And we think, in the days of, of universal empowerment.
Why one Muslim power, we want woman power, no have a one. We have a men's power movement. We want black power, respond to that we have a white power movement. We are Black Lives Matter. And now we have white lives matter. We have trans power, and LGBTQ trans is in their power. Everyone wants power. But no one wants to be a servant of Allah,
which is the negation of our illusion of power as human beings so that we can be truly empowered through our Lord, as he's been there.
There is no power independent of the power of Allah.
We say that, but the meaning doesn't sink into our hearts. Let hola wala Quwata illa biLlah. You ever say that
you might not understand Arabic, but I'm sure you've said that. Some people repeat it, the holder without Quwata illa biLlah. There is no strength and no power except with the law.
When we say it, by have we internalize that meaning and what it means in terms of what it means to be a human being.
This is a statement that contains within its meaning an integral part of what it means to be human, truly human. Because to be truly human, is to find one's power for law, not through our own efforts.
And that is what real justice is.
That's what real justice is.
Along with Stan, that's not what we wanted to talk about. That's a thought that came to mind. When we said Alhamdulillah Hilaire De Anza, Allah Allah Abdi Hill Kitab
Al Abdullah Al Kitab. So the prophets Allah Salam was honored with Herb odia and some say Abdi here,
are we honored?
Or do we find the thought, somewhat unsettling, through no fault of our own? were influenced by the zeitgeist of the time and place we find ourselves in the spirit of our times. Does the zeitgeist there's a fancy German way of saying the spirit of our times who wanted to talk about the build on last week's quick pop which obviously wasn't here, but to just one of the things we focused on was the saying of Allah subhanaw taala who will lead the bath the minion or sulam near to Allah him at you have to do early him at he will use that key mo your lemma whom will Kitab will you Allah Mohammed Kitab with Hekmatyar in can woman cub Lulu Theodore Aladdin movie in WA Haryana Minam la
mejor How can you be him? Well who will as he is will Hakeem Delica la he yo t he may inertia wala Whoville thought lil all the in that he Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who has revealed the Scripture unto
all of the who has this dispute it who is sent
from the unlettered the Arabs, generally speaking, but the ILF specifically the illiterate folk amongst the Arabs Rasul Allah minimum a messenger from amongst them, they knew him.
The point we wanted to make lies in the following, yet slew I lay him at he recites the signs of Allah unto them he recites the Quran to them. So we mentioned this in the context of the recently passed what will be Robbie? Oh well, the month of the Molad are people commemorate or celebrate and some don't, most do.
Or remember I mentioned the coming into the world of Mohamed Salah Lila was Solomon his significance.
His greatest significance is the quote
Ed? Yes No early him at
he revealed he recites his a law Tyler's versus His signs unto them. This is a reference to the Quran, where you say key him, and he purifies them and the goodness, so purifies them through the process refining our souls and our hearts
and our spirits.
And one sense, but also any good we can affirm for ourselves. It comes through our following Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Allah Tala says for Allah to say coup and Fusa come
further to that coup and full circle and full circle. Don't affirm any goodness for yourself. So a recommendation letter in Arabic we call it Tez. Kia. So mumkin Annie tech to bleed has kitten, can you write a recommendation? Right, all the good things about me. Allah says will lead to secoo and forsaken.
And then he said, Don't affirm your own virtue.
And he says about our prophets, Allah seldom Will you say key him, so he purifies them, but also our following of this Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that lies the affirmation of our virtue.
So any virtue we might have to use the language of the Hadith scholars
for a father, a hair, and then fo Hua li Reina, Leslie that Tina, who only it Dubai in early Muhammad and sallallahu alayhi wa salam, any virtue we have is extraneous. It's not because of us essentially, is because of something external to us. And that external something is our following of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Will you say key when you say key him?
So Quran has mentioned once? Yet smiley him a Yeti. Where you say key him where you are limb humble keytab he teaches them the book he teaches us the recitation and pronunciation of the book. So when we were studying Tajweed, it comes directly from our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which came from Allah subhanho wa taala. Every single letter, the Jews lost the ability to pronounce the name of the Holy of Holies.
Ask any Rabbi
the Muslims retain the ability to Murat pronounce every single letter of our Scripture.
Every single letter, every single vowel of the scripture, and this is what it means, as the manifest theory unexplained where you are a limo home model kita keytab he teaches them the Scripture the book,
when hikma and who and wisdom in this context and the understanding of the book?
Because everything has a Haqiqa the hadith of hell al Haritha
KFR sabattus by two men and hochkar on Volmer Takuan the condition Haqiqa
How did you wake up this morning? Yeah, Hadith. I woke up as a believer truly, be careful watch out for what you're saying everything has a deeper reality. In other words, there's a deeper reality to your faith.
And for those who think Haqiqa this is some thing that I did the Sufis invented that comes directly from this hadith
because he goes on to say I see things that ordinarily aren't seen it says if I'm looking at the throne of my Lord, and I see the people in paradise visiting each other with the clarity I see you
and then I see the people in hell
and then what did the Prophet say to him our rough tear Felsen rafter fell them.
So you understand you you have experienced
the deeper meanings of this whole thing. adhere to that. So from that you get hockey
and you get modified from this hadith
Sufis then make it up.
This is another issue so
The reality the key tab has a hockey ha. And the hockey Goliath lies in the meaning
in and of itself as externally pronounced. Anyone can learn to do that. Not anyone, most many people, most people, some people have speech defects and can't do certain things.
But the happiness lies in the hikma and the understanding of the book.
And this is another thing that the Sufis talk about and people think they made it up this from this idea and fork, well, Gemma, the external
thing that separated even can be Sharia keytab. From his deeper underlining reality, underlying reality and meaning is incomplete until there's connectivity as Jeremy so the fork and key tab will hikma and when they're brought together is a general
is the unification of form with meaning.
And this This extends to everything in this world.
And so three instances involve the Quran.
Yet smooth I lay him a yachtie where you say key him where your Allah Mohammed Kitab will hit matter. When can woman cub Lulu Theodore, lead and moonbeam.
So we don't want to expound on this anymore. That was last week's quick ba even though most of you want there, some of you were.
Well we want to mention is
we have to strive to understand and hikma to understand the book, read the Quran, the translation read in an English reading in Spanish, reading his French reading in order to read it in a language that you understand. So the recitation you have can be united with the meaning. And then the full strength of the Quran will dwell in your heart will enter into your heart. And then you will be your have armor with which to engage this world. A lot of meaning a lot of Muslims are buckling under the pressure of Cofer
because of this separation,
a lot of Muslims then and part an integral part of that unification is the language of Quran. The meanings of the Quran are conveyed through the language of the Quran. And many Muslims have rejected the language of Scripture, wittingly or unwittingly. And they understand the illusionary world because there's no key to unlock the reality of the world
except through the language of the Quran.
That's the key. And so there's an illusion of understanding
that leads them to undertake things that have that these this Muslim Omar has never endorsed throughout the entirety of his history
throughout the entirety of his history
let him deal anyhow Killa Let there be no change or alteration in the creation of Allah.
What are the implications of that just one simple phrase
for the whole movement of transgenderism
there is an implication most Muslims don't know so many Muslims out there advocating for transgenderism.
So it's important for us to understand the quarter en not just to recite it, but to understand it and then to understand the language that it gives us to understand reality.
So there's no time what I wanted to just mention something from the store of Ibrahim I listen. When Allah says what the corofin kitab Ibrahim and who can sit there can be Yeah. So remember in the Quran, Ibrahim Valley he was amongst the
deeply truthful, and he was a prophet.
So a set deep.
Our affair is built on honesty,
and a corollary of honesty, sincerity.
That's one of the foundations of our affair.
But if we don't have the proper language we can arrive to truth.
So we're looking at reality through the lenses of falsehood.
As opposed to arriving at truth and hack, we arrived that delusional whim.
This is the this is the nature of what's happening to us. And we have to stop it.
Not just for our sake for the sake of humanity,
when the Muslims adopt the language of the world, and see the world through the lenses that are provided by kufr,
who I hope is there for food for humanity.
To have any alternative reality
are to have reality period.
There's no alternative reality. Like Dawkins, it all came from an alternative universe as if that solved the problem is like
Now they'll give us Tofik.
As if that doesn't solve the problem, no reality period.
Nabil, he was a prophet.
We have received guidance from our Lord revelation is a source of knowledge. For us as Muslims.
We can't sideline it, we can't run away from it. We can't marginalize it is going to be there. Whether we like it or not. Some people some Muslims are becoming uncomfortable with Revelation
because it presents some inconvenient truths
that the zeitgeist finds uncomfortable. The spirit of our times is antithetical to those truths, but we we are truthful and we will form truthfulness in
the LLP or when the alleged Jana honesty is at the heart of our fair
and profit hurt is at the heart of our fear our fear
in illusions that benefit humanity in no way this is what we're supposed to be doing.
We're asleep that our will watch
your apathy Lima taboo, mellitus Mela, use me know whether you pursue Wallah your own young cache.
Oh my dear father.
Adab is part of our there's another lesson Yeah, apathy. His father's going against is engaging in shear. But he still has the adept to address him in a way befitting of the fact that he's his father. Yeah. abiti Oh my dear father, nema taboo, Mala Mala use middle Walla Walla, Walla,
why are you worshiping something that cannot hear and it cannot see, and they cannot benefit you in any way in terms of guidance and direction.
This is what we should be saying to our people. Why are you worshiping these things? Why are you worshiping money? Why are you worshiping the illusion of power? Why are you worshiping sex? And all of the manifest ways sex is being worship?
Why are you worshiping these these things they can't see. They can't hear. They can't see they can benefit you in any way.
Your ability, culture any, you know, law here in the car journey, Illman, mellem, Yachty.
For Toby, deca, Sirata, and Sophia.
So this comes back to Revelation. He said, I was lost.
Not that last. He was smashing idols, even before the revelation came. But I want others knowledge has come to me now I have revelation. So after an affirmation revelation has come to me, guidance from my Lord has come to me.
So follow me.
We should have the confidence to say to our people following me
as opposed to out of out of surrender. Who are 1400 years of history of wisdom of the finest minds to ever
Walk this planet have arrived. And I'll give it all up. And I'll follow you on your empty vein experiment.
Islam is no experiment.
This is 1400 years of experience. Are we going to abandon 1400 years of experience for an experiment that has been going on for 20 or 30 years?
In some instances less than a decade?
These are the types of questions we have to ask ourselves.
Are we going to say to our people fit to be Ernie?
Auntie Cassie Roth, and so we follow me and I will guide you to a straight path.
We are the scholars are the heirs of the prophets.
And the scholars have an OMA
and we have to be as an ummah, guiding people,
guiding our people,
lest they go to their destruction. Look, we're destroying the planet.
We're destroying the human being.
We were discussing people like why are you so bothered by the whole transgender thing? No more, I'm bothered by the fact that in a decade, because of the billions of dollars to be made.
There's no money to be made with the L, nor the B
nor the G. But the T, there is a whole
array of surgical procedures that will get instituted into our medical practices. There's a whole array of instruments, there's a whole genre of hormones that will require a lifelong application. In other words, the billions of dollars to be made. And there's people who are exploiting the issue in terms of the emotion
why you must them so merciless,
and cold and non understanding. So they can reap those billions.
That's the reality of the situation.
But once you accept that, once you accept
that science and medicine can totally alter a human being,
then there is no moral argument you can make against transhumanism
because Transhumanism is science totally altering a human being. You've accepted the premise now what argument do you have
to stand between Kurzweil and his singularity? Whether you the the carbon based biological human meets the silicon based machine, and then we merge it together.
And we create gods this is, this is CAFR way of seeing it.
When he's asked, Do you believe in God, what did he say? He said, Not yet.
We're getting there. He didn't say we're getting there. By implication.
That's what's at stake.
Who's going to defend the creation of Allah subhanho wa taala. Who is going to defend? While they said that Kuru can unfair, the male is in no wise like the female who's going to defend the complementarianism once we do away
with the clarity, there lies in a Docker will infer the lies in the male and the female, once we do away with that clarity,
and all the lines get blurred.
Who's going to who's going to be left to defend our origin?
And our reality was reality no matter what you do, how much science how many operations, how many hormones, you're going to be x x or x y.
First the reality of the human being
and you can't alter that.
Now Allah give us tofi.
So he says, knowledge has come to me. Follow me. I will guide you to a straight path. Yeah, either Tila taboo, the shaytaan in the shaytaan a cannon there are many I'll see ya. On my father. Don't follow satan. The early Satan is
Since rebel against the Most Merciful in this in the shaytaan a cannon the right many I'll see you
were either fighting against shaytaan and fighting is the rebellion of shaytaan or we're we're aiding and abetting through our neutrality
and Medina hottie Marina fee Sabine Isla, when Lady in a CAFO, who you're caught in on a piece of billet Park route, the call to new on the shaytaan in Nikita shaytani, Canada etha those who believe they fight in the way of Allah, those who were disbelieved they fight in the way of shaytaan so fight you all together, the Dukes of Satan Wehrli the scheme of Satan is weak.
Satan should be we should be revealing the guy who's of Satan exposing the guy who's of Satan. Some of us are uncomfortable talking about Satan.
Why? Because we've been removed from this language of Scripture
shaytaan occurs throughout the Quran.
shaytaan is will
shaytaan is Will
his dupes and demons are real. And they're wreaking havoc in our world.
And we should have the integrity the moral integrity to oppose it.
But we can't
we can't unless we have a connection to this language unless we understand the Scripture
this is this is imperative.
Yeah, buddy in New York Hoffa aka Miss seca are their bone mineral ramen feta cone on the shaytani Walia.
Alia shaytaan. Oh, my father, um, I afraid I fear that you will be afflicted
by a punishment from the Most Merciful, and then you will become a dupe of Satan.
is the father of a prophet?
This is someone who's close to the Prophet. What about us
is easy to become a dupe of Satan is easy to become a worthy of Satan.
We have to protect our deen. We have to protect our hearts, we have to protect our consciousness. And we can only do that if the meanings are penetrating to the core of our being. A final point I'm passing the time is this.
If we're not steeped with the meanings,
it's difficult to develop the passion that's necessary
to defend it.
It takes passion. If we are not connected with this language. What does it mean and learn that we're often MBA psychologists A learned person who doesn't see himself or herself. We have female scholars who doesn't see himself or herself taking up the mission of Ibrahim
taking up the mission of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam defending principles and language and ideas and culture that are rooted in reality that this world cannot give birth to
tell us what's at stake brothers and sisters.
So we have to go back and we have to heed
the the wisdom of Scripture.
We have to envelop ourselves in the area that you're at. And we have to constantly recite the key tab where you are where you Allah Muhammad Kitab and we have to understand what the Kitab what the scripture means. Well, hikma
May Allah give us Tofik May Allah give us success in our endeavor, and our affairs are Kulu Kohli had that was stopped for Allah Allah Allah.
What do you say to me in your comments, stop rule or stop?
hamdu Lillahi wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah were early he was so happy he woman why Allah
In a law a woman you gotta who you saw when Island navy. Yeah you Khaled in Amman who suddenly rally he was selling the motors lien Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Muhammad Allah, he was so happy he was a lamp hamdulillah
something else the understanding the Scripture gives us. An understanding the language of the Scripture gives us is the ability to find joy, and define happiness amidst all the confusion and all of the stress and all of the bad news.
Because one thing we understand is that the bad news is not the only news. If it bleeds, it leads. If it bleeds, it leads, so read about the scandals, and we read about the bombings and the stabbings only if it serves someone's agenda.
Like two people get stabbed on a bridge in London, to death.
Everyone knows about all over the world I'm not defending it is a dastardly cowardly, sick.
sigh a psychopathic action.
But I mean to people get stabbed somewhere in Oakland,
Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. And no one knows about it.
How come we all know about that which happens halfway around the world. And we don't know about this that happens in our own backyard. Because what's happening in our backyard doesn't serve anyone's agenda, what's happening on our backyard. If we analyze that, then we realize there's some changes we have to make at a high level
because this quietly feeds the whole prison industrial complex.
And and so keeping that quiet allows us to continue with the the disgrace that the prison industrial complex constitutes and broadcasting what happens on a bridge in London filthy fees the military industrial complex, so broadcasting that is in the interest of someone's agenda.
But we have to understand true for what it is that a death of an innocent person is a death.
And no matter what the circumstances are as Justice condemnable. And just as we have to take steps to stop that kind of senseless killing, we have to take steps to stop this kind of senseless killing, killing, that that comes from understanding reality for what it is, and not the distortion of reality to feed or serve someone's agenda.
By if we as Muslims don't become those who begin to show this is exactly the same as that this deserves as much attention as that because we're committed to truth.
And we're committed to human life
and preserving it is one of our great overarching objectives of our Allah, the preservation of life,
then we're not doing our jobs. So may Allah give us tawfeeq. But the point, despite all that bad news, we have the ability to smile. We have the ability to live lives that aren't engulfed and enveloped in fear that people are afraid to go outside because all they do is watch the news. Oh my god, I'm gonna stab I'm gonna get mugged. A terrorist is gonna sell me I can't go outside. The Muslim news goes freebie. Says Bismillah towards Allah Allah. Allah Allah. I know generally if I'm not wrapped up in anything, my life is going to be safe. Especially if I look like a Muslim
really going to be safe.
so we just go about our business that's the beauty of our religion. And no one Don't let anyone take it away from you don't let what's happening in the world and being disparate presented and it's despotic, this distorted form, take your the joy from your heart, the joy that comes from worth worshiping Allah, the joy from reading court in the joy you feel after a day of fasting now you're breaking your fast
The salt in the fire her turn. The fasting person has two joys. There's joy in our religion
called the family law he will be rahmati for Be very careful Yaffa who will hire and Minaya Gman say and the grace of Alana and His mercy and this let them rejoice.
Let them rejoice with joy as people as we go and work to solve the problems of the world that helps us to work on it. There's no activist burnout with a Muslim there's only Masha Allah. Now you've been working at this for 10 years and nothing changed Masha Allah that's 10 years a thorough app in my scale, well humbly man. So if you're not you don't believe this 10 years of wasted time. I could have been doing a b c or d I've been doing this for 10 years and nothing changed. If you believe in Allah in the Milan Malou bunny yet and you Nia was to serve the creatures of Allah and to bring relief to them. Then you have 10 years of ADGER you don't waste your time. That's the best way to
sift spend your time the essence of the religion is serving alone serving his people serving his creation.
Well now HELOC to genuine insert in Lolly Abu Boon I've only created the Jinsan human that they worship Me

Then we die and then it's all over with smiling in the grave. Sweet Dreams perfume nice windows the whole place in Jana. grass and flowers in the garden from the gardens of Paradise. Nice and spacious, comfortable. Allahu Akbar. Some people don't think about that. Being in the grave.
