Notes: Personality Disorders of Men - Shaikh Faisal

Tafseer Surah Baqarah: (Personality Disorders of Men)
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(morning dars 4.30.11)

Surah Baqarah
36. Then the Shaitan (Satan) made them slip therefrom (the Paradise), and got them out from that in which they were. We said: "Get you down, all, with enmity between yourselves. On earth will be a dwelling place for you and an enjoyment for a time."

--You need to study the Quran to be enlightened about the human psyche and what ALLAH has demanded for you to do
--Qur’an is also a book of guidance, psychology, sociology, history and more

What causes ENMITY?
--when some is envying you for what ALLAH has blessed you with, he naturally becomes your enemy
--Shaitan become an enemy of Adam and Eve, Shaitan is on the WARPATH
--when a person is your enemy, they also hate your kids and entire progeny
--shaitan said he will destroy the entire progeny of Adam
--because ALLAH preferred man over him
(Allah) said: "What prevented you (O Iblis) that you did not prostrate yourself, when I commanded you?" Iblis said: "I am better than him (Adam), you created me from fire, and him you created from clay" (7:12)
--he believes that ALLAH gave him a raw deal and he thinks he is better than man cause he was made from fire
--so he is intent upon destroying Adam and his progeny
--this is the promise of Ibliss

--when people are chasing the same natural resource,s they naturally become enemies to one another
--when the natural resources become scarce, the competition and hatred intensifies
--you think they are united but they hate each other!
They fight not against you even together, except in fortified townships, or from behind walls Their enmity among themselves is very great You would think they were united, but their hearts are divided That is because they are a people who understand not (59:14)
--Kaafirs worship money, technology and pleasures of flesh
--Kaafirs don't understand because they think every man has a price
--Kaafirs can't buy out the sincere believers
--they turned a blind eye to the dictators in the Arab world for 50 years because as long as these dictators give them access to the natural resources in those countries, they don’t give a damn what they do to their own people

--the only reasons why the Americans fought the Taliban is because the Taliban did not allow them to plunder their resources and wealth
--the Taliban instead did business with the Argentineans
--even if you cut off the hand of the thief, and cut off the head of the homosexuals, the Americans will turn a blind eye so long as you give them access to your natural resources
--America turned a blind eye to KSA because ARAMCO is controlled by Americans
--they don’t criticize the Saudis but they have problems with the Taliban
--if you’re a brutal dictator, THEY will turn a blind because they don’t care about your people; why should they?
--when the kuffar say human rights or Justice, it only extends to their own people
--they don’t care about anyone else
--These kaafirs are competing for the same natural resources
--they hate each other and are DIVIDED amongst themselves
--Muslims think they are united and love each other but they are wrong [59:14]
--these kuffar are only united when they are plotting to fight Islam
--even in Israel, the Jews there hate each other
--the only thing that unites them is FEAR

--the kaafir fears the Muslims and instill fear of the Muslims in their population (movies/media, etc…)
--they know that to unite their population they have to create a fear of the Muslims
--"the Muslims are coming to get you"
--that’s their strategy to unite the citizenry: FEAR
"Pay your taxes, join our Army; there is an enemy out there!" <<< fear
Bush used the fear factor to win the election against John Kerry

Surah Baqarah
37. Then Adam received from his Lord Words And his Lord pardoned him (accepted his repentance) Verily, He is the One Who forgives (accepts repentance), the Most Merciful

--When Adam was flung from heaven he was forced to fend for himself, Allah told him: you’re not going be in a state of prosperity like you are now -- you will have to fend for yourself and since you’re going be chasing after the same natural resources, you will HATE each other
--after hi sin, ALLAH taught Adam(as) how to make taubah/repentance
--Younnes was also taught how to make taubah when he was in the belly of the whale
And (remember) Dhan-Nun (Jonah), when he went off in anger, and imagined that We shall not punish him (i.e. the calamites which had befallen him)! But he cried through the darkness (saying): La ilaha illa Anta [none has the right to be worshipped but You (O Allah)], Glorified (and Exalted) are You [above all that (evil) they associate with You]. Truly, I have been of the wrong-doers." (21:87)
--if you do haram you shud make taubah as well (best time to make taubah is the last 3rd of the night because Allah descends to the lowest heaven and sees those who are making taubah)
Rasul(saw) said 5 daily prayers, Jummah prayers and Ramadan wipes away your sins from one to the other if you abstained from the major sins

fabricated hadith:
--when Adam sinned, he looked up to the Arsh of ALLAH and he saw La ilaha ill Allah,
Muhammad-ur-Rasul Allah - and he asked ALLAH who is Muhammad? Allah said why did you ask - Adam said he saw Muhammad’s name next to Allah's name therefore Adam sought forgiveness in the name of Muhammad
--this Hadith quoted by Sufis and is FABRICATED

When they Hate/Envy you they are bent on destroying you
--when people hate/envy you, they do black magic on you
--in an Islamic State, we're required to chop off their heads and we don’t apologize to anyone about it

Surah Falaq (113)
1. Say: "I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of the daybreak,
2. "From the evil of what He has created;
3. "And from the evil of the darkening (night) as it comes with its darkness; (or the moon as it sets or goes away).
4. "And from the evil of the witchcrafts when they blow in the knots,

Surah Baqarah
38. We said: "Get down all of you from this place (the Paradise), then whenever there comes to you Guidance from Me, and whoever follows My Guidance, there shall be no fear on them, nor shall they grieve.

You wont suffer grief if you follow the Guidance of Allah
--If you don’t follow the guidance of ALLAH, you'll always be in grief and depression
--Ta-Ha and Baqarah = both talk about Adam and Ibliss
"But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (ie neither believes in this Quran nor acts on its orders, etc) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection" (20:124)
--The way u treat ALLAH in the world ALLAH will treat you same way in hereafter
--if you don't follow Qur’an, your life will be life of mental depression
He will say: "O my Lord! Why have you raised me up blind, while I had sight (before)" (Allah) will say: "Like this, Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc) came unto you, but you disregarded them (ie you left them, did not think deeply in them, and you turned away from them), and so this Day, you will be neglected (in the Hell-fire, away from Allah's Mercy)" (20:125-126_
--American soldiers kill their families because they suffer from PTSD
"Who whispers in the breasts of mankind, "Of jinns and men" (114:5-6)
--they suffer Acute Stress Disorder/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)/ Schizophrenia/ Prader Willi Syndrome/ Anorexia
Verily, I will mislead them, and surely, I will arouse in them false desires; and certainly, I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allah" And whoever takes Shaitan (Satan) as a Walee (protector or helper) instead of Allah, has surely suffered a manifest loss (4:119)
--Rasul said the believer eat with one stomach and one stomach he splits into 1/3rds
Certainly! Allah will admit those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, to Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), while those who disbelieve enjoy themselves and eat as cattle eat, and the Fire will be their abode (47:12)
--You need to be more Quranic and Islamic and not westernized
--Majority of people in west are suffering b/c they don't implement the book of ALLAH in their life

--the only religion accepted to ALLAH is Islam
Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam. Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, then surely, Allah is Swift in calling to account. (3:19)
--don’t use [2:62] to give false hope to jews/Christians, this only applies to jews and Christians b4 Muhammad who believed and obeyed Allah without associating partners
Verily! Those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day and do righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve (2:62)
--ALLAH promised Jews and Christians hell fire and called them the worst of creatures
Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikun will abide in the Fire of Hell They are the worst of creatures (98:6)
--in the UK, many people who take shahadah have to keep their shahadah quiet
--you will have a life of pain and mental depression if you don't follow the book of ALLAH
