Surah Nahl â Allah is the Protector and Provider
Surah Nahl â Thanking Allah for His blessings
He was having him all out on Saturday or Sunday and the
holy urban as you know for dunya Santa Clara de hacer la Vina la but not saramonic como la he will want to welcome everybody to just a day My apologies for the delay here today Getting Started but inshallah we'll get started right away in sha Allah. Today we have with us the 14th Jews of the Quran it's upon Allah, it's almost halfway into Ramadan and halfway into our study of the Quran, we ask Allah to make the rest of Ramadan less for us. I mean, no, but I mean, just if I can get a quick message from people that if they can hear me okay, in the chat on the Facebook page as well. That's that will be appreciated.
Can you Can y'all hear me sound like Oh,
Good job. Let's get started with light data. Thank you very much.
For for private message surah juice 14 begins with surah hedger and ends with Surah nahal. These two students are the two souls in this in this job. So number 15. And number 16, what are the sutras are makin revelation and these are sutras that talk about
among the many things they talk about, trying to make the argument the case that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one that we should worship. And we do that by recognizing his favours and his blessings. We do that by recognizing the amazing grace that he has blessed us with all around us. Alhamdulillah Oh, sorry, the chat was disabled. For the zoom people. My apologies. I'm sure now you can chat and say yes, you can hear me hamdulillah Sorry about that.
So this is the two main themes. Let's get started by talking about what is the main theme of sort of the novel, it is to show that a Lost Planet Allah is the Protector and the provider, the protector and the provider that is Allah subhanahu what Allah and he provides many examples of how he is the protector and provider in this particular sutra, let us have the What's it called? The translation up here as well.
In the sort of begins by a last month of thing Alif Lam RA, these are these disjointed letters. Its meaning is only known to a Lost Planet Allah. Then he says something very interesting. He says Delica Ayatollah kitabi.
Well, for animal being,
this these are the signs or the ayat of the clear, book, The Quran.
He says after that Rupa Maya de la de la cafaro Logan muslimeen the people who are a time will come that surely those were bent on denying the truth, will wish that they were Muslims to this is a last part Allah starting the surah in a very, almost dramatic way, if you think about it, that there will come a time where people will wish that they were Muslims. What is that day? What is that time that is the time on the Day of Judgment. And that is this the start in the beginning of the surah in this way, is because Allah is going to talk about how the Quraysh were mocking the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam how they were making fun of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and we're seeing a
whole sorts are saying all sorts of things about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And
this is what Allah says, starts as a response before anything, there will be a day will where these people will wish that they were Muslims right now they are happily laughing at you Oh Prophet, there is a day that they will wish that they weren't doing that. They're homea kulula tomato so lead them to eat, leave them to eat and enjoy
themselves and let them be beguiled by vain hopes. Well, you will he will ml for Sofia Allah moon, for soon they will realize the truth. They realize the truth soon enough. Allah says something interesting. He says we never destroyed a township without a definitive, definitive or a definite degree or a definite decree having been issued
in Korea in Illa Allah hotkey taboo. maloom there is a time that this this you know if a city was to be destroyed, it wasn't done.
randomly Allah, Allah will give them an opportunity. And that opportunity was a long enough time to speak woman omoton Allah, how am I a clue that time was long enough for them to realize what's right and what's wrong. But when the time came, it would be not delayed. You can delay it by a moment. Now a lot of quotes the mockery of the people of flourish would say to the prophets of Salaam vokalia, you are living Newsela, Allah, his Vicar here, you who thinks that he is receiving revelation, the expression is very, like it's full of dripping of sarcasm, if it's lost in the translation, but in the Arabic, New Zealand a vicar is a passive verb. And the usage of the passive in this context is
to show you know, outright rejection of the possibility that it's happening. But still, the words are used to Schumer the other person, right? So yeah, you I live in New Zealand a vicar Hey, you're thinking you're receiving revelation? In Nicola June, you're actually crazy. So panela that's what they said to the Prophet solemn, the people who knew him and from the moment he was, you know, from the since he was a little boy since he was born, and trusted him, called him Assad that amine would give them the truthful the trustworthy would give him their life, you know, savings so that he could protect them, for them, store them as trust. these very same people when the Prophet is are
preaching that worship Allah alone and shun all these idols. They're saying, You're crazy. Lola lamattina, will malignity in contaminate solder here? Why don't you bring upon us angels? If you are truthful? Okay, if you really are a prophet, why don't you bring angels? The irony is there's angels gibreel coming with the revelation, but what they want is they want a show of miracle, a great show that they could see. And then only then can they even entertain the thought that the prophets Islam is a prophet. Now, as I mentioned before, and as the Quran makes it very clear, the people asking for miracles like this generally don't have any interest in believing. They have no interest in
believing because the ones who have an interest and desire to believe in Allah and His Messenger, the amazing wondrous creation of Allah is miraculous enough to provide evidence for the truth that Allah is the Creator. And the Prophet Salim is the Prophet, okay, and then the Quran, and it's in its beauty and its accuracy. And all of those are evidences that can be put together. And that is enough to convince a person along with the experience of the faith, along with all the good qualities that a person acquires as they become faithful. That is, what is, that's what convinces people but the one who says I want to see a miracle and only then can I think about this being a
true religion or not genuinely has no interest in believing this is just a misdirection. This is just a smokescreen. So, I lost my
response to this kind of request. That is a request made with with mockery. He's responds with a stern response. Manjula, Zuma ekata, elaborate happy Mama, Mama can either moaning but we send down angels only to ring justice and then they will not be deprived. Meaning Allah says when angels come from the sky, when Allah sends angels to a nation or a city, that is usually they're coming to destroy that city as we'll see in this sutra, and that when the angels came to those people of loot, that's what why they come so be careful of what you're asking. That's what Allah says the people of Malaysia are asking for destruction Be careful of what you are asking for. So this is a very
interesting introduction that alum makes he also you know says that look, these people who are asking for these miracles though fatahna Allah him Baba minister Ma, if we had open for them a door in the sky, okay, sorry about that. Like whatever that is. And Mohammed,
if we had open for them a door from the heaven for value fee or the Ria Oh, June and then they are ascending through and imagine that the sky opens up and these people are ascending through it. If that miracle was to take place, what will be the response of these people are calling in Mr. Sukira upasana. But not no mom must have grown. They would say, Well, our eyes have been dazzled. We are a people that have been bewitched. Even if that was to take place, they still wouldn't entertain the thought that they are that this this is a divinely inspired book. And this is a divinely chosen messenger. And this is the
Way of the truth, even if they were to live a miracle they weren't accepted. So this argument or this idea that this this request or this demand, they're making a loss patola rubbishes, that by this response, and then also he responds, or he mentioned that Allah will protect his book and protect this fate. Nobody will come and nobody will. Will will come to
could destroy it. Allah is taking the responsibility of protecting it in unison and vichara. Well in Nala hula half is extremely emphasized verse, It is we who have sent down the reminder, Allah says he has sent it down. We're in now Lahu la haffi rune, we for sure we will get safeguarded, no one is going to harm it. And this is living to the Puranas a living testament of this ayah the way the Quran has been protected by Allah, Allah has been protected, unlike any other previous scripture before it, in what is called a tomato in it the way is transmitted, you know, in a way that it is impossible to fabricate or to change the earliest script of the Quran. The earliest manuscript, the
Quran and the manuscript we have today. The Quran in them is identical, the recitation of it, even though there are different modes of it, each mode remains identical. And that is an absolutely, you know, precedented thing in human history to have a book before the Industrial Revolution before the printing press to be preserved in a manner this pristine in an afternoon as della decorah in Allahu Allah hospital. One of the greatest miracles of Allah, one of the greatest examples of how Allah, Allah provides and protects.
He says, Allah talks about how the next few examples he will talk about how he protects how he is, excuse me, the provider. He provides, he provides, he protects the sky, he's made the sky and has made it beautiful, beautified with constellations.
And he protects the sky from the cursed devil from trying to sneak in there and try to cause to try to steal the
the the information from the angels illimani startup has some alpha tomorrow who should have a movie, then that person or that devil is pursued by a bright, flaming fire. So all of these things that Allah says,
or is that it's just one of those. It's an example of talk about how he is subhana wa Taala. The The one who is the Protector, the one who was a provider, he says in here, the creatures of the earth, Allah is providing for them. And he is the one who is watching out or watching over them while Obama did not have firstly he says we have made the earth we've spread it out and set upon it for mountains and caused
cause to grow over these
over this earth cliche in Mozu but nafi ham in Galicia him mo Zun every
thing that is growing in do proportion, so panula this is one of the beautiful signs of a lost pantalla that everything on Earth, you know is in proportion and everything in on the earth grows into proportion. So I'm just adjusting something here.
Yes, indeed. All right, hold up.
The sunlight now is interfering quite a bit with our
with our background, I can stop that.
All right. So one button FM in Galicia in mazoon was Allah confy hamara ish woman listo hubiera Zippy team and we have provided there in a means of livelihood for you. And for those creatures whom you do not provide. Okay, so here is Allah says he is the provider he provides for us and he provides the creatures of the earth He allows. He is the one who allows things to grow on the earth. It's not like that everything on earth is this one thing every like everyone does this, every part of the earth grows the same thing. No, he allows a this beautiful variety of, of vegetation to grow all over the earth. And that is a beautiful way of him providing for all creatures of the earth. So
that is an evidence that he provides to show that he is a rezac the
provider he provides talks about the pollinating wins
well out of celeea Halawa they have we let loose the pollinating winds and these pollinating winds, what they do is they pollinate the, the flowers and and then from that the the the fruits are our fruits come about and this is another way elaborates for others a lamb in the summer he man and then he brings water from the sky, but as I naku and we give that to you as a drink, the rain becomes a source of water for us, and my anthem level because in in and you could not have started up for yourself this water. So, if a lot cuts off the rain, if there is a drought, it doesn't matter what type of store houses we have, we will eventually run out of water. So lost popular provides the idea
that he is the source who provides we will take what the he provides from the source and we will add to it, they will you know, thrive on it, we will become prosperous based off of it, but the source of It is Allah and that is our reserve and that is a beautiful You know, that's a beautiful thing we have to understand and acknowledge that our whatever it is like our economies what they're based on our whatever it is that we live on and thrive on. The source provider of It is Allah subhana wa Tada. We're in Atlanta No, no, he went to meet one very soon. Alina Mustafa de Mina, Mina, como La Nina, Mr. Green, truly, It is we who bring to life and It is we who caused that, and we are the
inheritor of all all things. He says, it is your Lord who will gather them he is all wise and all knowing this idea, a lot of talks about the creation. And right after that he talks about the resurrection, the creation and the resurrection are spoken of together because they are so related the Quran, it speaks about the beauty of Allah's creation, His Majesty, so you can recognize who your Lord is that you can worship Him. And when it is time for resurrection. You are, you've attained salvation. You see the majesty of Allah's creation, but this creation is not eternal is not perpetual, it is going to end on the Day of Resurrection, always, always you will notice this
beautiful theme in the Quran. Because the purpose of talking about the creation of Allah isn't just to talk about the beautiful mountains, it is to recognize the creator of the mountains. It is not just to talk about the beautiful rivers, it's to recognize that one day all of these will, will will dry up and finish up and then everybody will be brought back to life. That's the purpose and the Quran never lets you lose focus of its purpose of the discourse. Allah gives examples of all he protects and provides. He talks about the story of Adam and Eve lease. Adam, he says we created a man out of dry clay from molded mud and the gin we created before from flaming fire. Jennifer's here
would be the devil. He believes a lot said to the angels that I'm about to bring a man rot from mud. So when I have formed him and read my spirit into him fall down in prostration before him, the angels prostrated themselves except the police who refuse to join those who were prostrating a blaze the story I've talked about in sort of Iraq before. One thing I like to point out something interesting is like the different shades of the story, the Koran will repeat the story, you know, once the story comes once and the story comes again, but the repetition is not without any purpose, the repetition isn't done for the sake of being repetitive, the repetition has a very, very clear,
you know, connection to the theme of the surah. And also sometimes, in fact, every time there's some new element of the story that is brought to the forefront that wasn't mentioned in another part. So for example, here Allah mentions the exact sort of the exact type of creation that Adam and Assam was right, he says, The replying This is what leads us then accordingly as accordingly as to the budget and the human soul Solomon hammer in was known and not to prostrate myself to a man whom you have created out of a clay of molded mud. So this idea Sol Sol in min hammer, Emma Stone provides more information this is new information that is not fine in other parts of the Quran, in the story
of Adam and and the creation that he was created from this mud. This mud that is that
Howdy flips should be fine with the problem says a lot created him from a handful of mud pub Allah Hammond, Jimmy and all that he took from all of the earth. And that's why the diversity of the creation of Adam. And then when this mud is mixed with water, it becomes or this dirt is mixed with water, it becomes mud. And when the adolescents body was molded, it was molded like clay when it dries. So the process of how that happened, is alluded to and described here. Also, what's interesting here, of course, interesting here is of course at last month hotels, at least, to get out of here, and then you are cursed until the day of judgment. He asks that Allah allow me to be
give me respect until the Day of Resurrection allow me to be alive until the Day of Resurrection, he is going to live from the beginning of time till the Day of Judgment. So holla This is a exceptional case. And Allah grandson that exception in the communal moon verdin Ella, Yeoman walked in maloom, you are granted respect till the appointed day. Now he says, oh, Lord, I since you have let me go astray, again, blames Allah for his, his flaws for his choices. He doesn't blame himself. He doesn't look towards himself to fix himself. He looks towards Allah to blame Allah Spano, tala, and he says, My Lord, you have let me go astray. I shall make the path of error seem alluring to them on the
earth, and shall mislead them, except your chosen sermons. Now what's interesting is in Surah, are off. Number 16. I like I'll show that to you. Here, sort of out of it. Number 16.
The devil says, All Lord, I will sit. You know,
he says that
for the amount of whitening because you have put me in the wrong I will lie in ambush for them on your straight path right here he's talking about where the where is the straight path, I am going to sit on the straight path, ie those who are looking to follow the religion of the truth. I am going to sit at the at the at this on the straight path and try to cause doubts in religion. Try to make people bicker and fight about the religion. Try to make people do things in the name of religion that will push other people away from religion. All of those things he's talking about where now he's talking about in this surah how he will do it. What about the life of the world that was a nun
Allah home fill out the I'm going to make the life of the world seem alluring. It's going to seem awesome. And as you've seen
the Quran provides the reasons for this belief and this is one of the top reasons for this belief, the love of the material life, the love of luxury and pleasure and enjoyment as at the top of the list. So you see here even though the story is the same, the slight difference were in sort of our off how in Surah TL a hedger okay.
Of course Allah subhanaw taala says that this is my straight path, this is the path that leads to me and my servants you have no power to misguide them, except the one who chooses to follow you. Meaning you can only whisper my you have no power, you have no authority over people. You are you know, you can only incite but the one who does it is the person themselves and the one who does so we're in the jahannam Anna Marie to whom am I in hell is the place that they are destined to be in. Now. Alas mother describes hell here by saying it has seven gates each of them has a portion allotted to each gate has a portion of these people allotted to it, we escalus protection from it.
And then he describes gender as is a laws habit two in the Quran when he describes Hellfire right after that he describes a paradise or a paradise comes first Hellfire comes second to let us again live that dual balance of hope and fear like the thunder, the thunder is frightening. But also it is optimistic because now there is going to be rain. So the same that we talked about yesterday, same idea hope in Allah mercy, fear in Allah's wrath, both of them have to go together. So here is the hope. The hope is that if you are righteous, you will dwell in gardens and fountains jannetty or Yun it will be sad enter in peace and security. So Panama, you're peaceful, there is no violence, you're
secure. There is no threat of being harmed. When azana Murphy's Law de mineral that that's an external you know peace and security. There's also internal peace and security what's the internal peace and security naza Anna Murphy Soto de mineral, we shall cleanse their hearts of all traces of ill will. They will be like brother and street seated
On couches facing one another, all ill feelings all ill will, all beef will be gone from the people's heart, and that is inner peace and serenity suppiler love. And then on top of that lie I'm assuming they will not be affected by any weariness, their end they will not get tired, they will not be made to leave my home and having mythology in what an amazing place just even if you just ignore all the other pleasures of Jenna, the greatest pleasure of course being to see a loss pantalla but if we just put all that aside, and this is it, peace and security around you, serenity and peace inside of you. No ill feelings, no grudges, you wake up happy, you go to sleep happy. You
wake up, not being tired, you're asleep. You're not tired, but you're relaxing. It's up to you, you want to go to sleep or not. That is Subhan Allah the amazing life, we ask Allah to give us that in his paradise amminadab anatomy. In for my servants. Allah says that I am the Forgiving and the Most Merciful need and Allah for Orion, but also inform them that my punishment is the painful punishment. And now here is a subtlety of the Quran expression that's so beautiful. And I wish I can talk about it more, but I don't have a lot of time. But Allah says, I am the Forgiving and the merciful. But when he talks about punishment, he doesn't say I am the Punisher. No, he says my
punishment is painful. Not that Allah is out to punish. He is the one who's the Punisher, who was out to get people that's not who he is. He is the one who forgives, who loves who wants to bring us closer to him who wants us to be in paradise in his paradise, so handle with his chosen servants. But it is that
he is the one who forgives and is the one who was merciful, but he also has punishment, that the punishment is painful, severe or subtle expression of how he expresses himself in the Quran talks about that his mercy is like is a characteristic of him. And his punishment is something that is there that he created in his hellfire. Okay, then the next story is about Ibrahim al Islam and his guests. And Luke alayhis. Salam, the people of loot is the nephew of Ibrahim. Now, as you get seen this before, Ibrahim alayhis. Salam had, you know, visitors who he entered into this house, there he was afraid of these visitors. The last part Allah had sent angels to,
to his house in the form of human beings. They gave him the good news that he is going to have a child, okay.
You will have a son who will be endowed with great knowledge. He says how what what good news are you bringing me despite my old age? What kind of news is this? You know, like he was surprised about this news all of a sudden.
And then they said, Well, we've bought you the true news. That that is from Allah subhanaw taala do not despair, Ibrahim response, he says are not disappearing. I am 100% sure this is going to happen. Okay, but you misunderstood me or angels who has who but the misguided despair of the mercy of the Lord. But my angels. My question is, why are you actually here? I'm a horrible coma, you homeless alone? Remember, at the beginning of the surah Allah, Allah told the people when the angels come, they don't usually come, you know, for when Allah sends angels, he's sending them usually to extract punishment on the people that have this obeyed a prophet. So when the police were like to bring an
angel or prophet, right, Allah would respond. Be careful what you're asking for, because angels when Allah sends them, they're coming to extract punishment. Iran, he will suffer news that understands that. So when Ibrahim Ali Salam angels are here, and they're like, Hey, we come to tell you about a child. He's like, okay, but what's the real reason you're here? Because, you know, what, what what's your What are you what are you really here for? And then the angels say, in Austin, Illa, COVID, Majid me We are sent to a guilty people, except for the household of lot. We are going to save them, okay, except his wife. She is not included in that. in that household. We have decreed that she will
be among those who are left behind and destroyed. Now these angels go to the people of loot, they he said you are strangers, he decided to host them.
The angels revealed to him right this is fast forwarding the story a little bit after a little while had passed. Angels tell him we are going to bring you news about what they have disputed with Congress.
The truth for another saw the spoon we are showing the truthful for us. semiotica I'm in LA live with your family at some part of the lab some, some time in the latter part of the night and walk behind them, whatever uddevalla home while I have the fitment Kumar hadden, don't look back, none of you won't do it till tomorrow, and go where you are commanded. Now the angels are telling them, Look, we are you think we're strangers, we're actually angels. And we're here to extract the punishment upon the sinful people, and you will be saved and your family but not your wife. And what you need to do is take your family by night, sometime in the night leave, you trail them, they go in
the front, you trail them from the back, none of you look back. And if you look back at the punishment, one do Haifa tomorrow go where you are commanded Kadena and these kind of details by the way that the Quran provides, is
to give you a glimpse of how devastating the punishment is that the telling little Islam you'll be behind your family day behind your daughter's behind others who believe in you. And don't make sure no one looks back because this is going to be a punishment that will you know, that could break a person just by looking at it, what kobina la Valley can be communicated to him or decree that the guilty ones would be destroyed by the morning. So Off you go before the morning comes. Now the people have lot of loot that people have lot Sodom and Gomorrah, the city that they were in was a city where sodomy the word comes from the idea of homosexuality. And in Islam, we don't accept this
as a acceptable lifestyle. Of course, we don't go after a person who is you know, engaging in this and try to harm them because we don't harm people. You know, at all in this manner, people are left to their own choices. This is specifically about a people who did this in a denial in in defiance of a profit. And as you've seen when people defy your profit, the punishment of a lot comes and is extracted upon them, the punishment of God has sent upon these people in divine punishment. So this is the context of the story. Okay. This is how the Quran describes prophets are sent, prophets are denied, and then punishment of of God is extracted upon them and this is a situation here as well.
But here this particular situation is has one unique aspect which is of sexual corruption. These people lived in a corrupted lifestyle that was rotten and unacceptable. And it was at its absolute worst case scenario where at the sight of some attractive young men they would be aroused with john Medina the assumption they would come revealing your submission celebrating Nautilus Sam is trying to protect his guests. He says these are my guests fall out of the hole don't disgrace me in front of my guests. What the law of zone fear God and do not shame me. They said, Our Nan haka Allah, Allah mean, they will not forbid you to extend hospitality to strangers, they may tell you keep
like, leave these people leave strangers, leave the guests to us, we will take care of them and we will indulge in them and whatnot. Do tala Salam like this is a glimpse into like the curtain the level of corruption that the society had descended into the sexual corruption was so rampant that no one was spared. So Nutella Salam as he is trying to spare someone they're like, didn't tell you to like stop doing that. He's like, why don't you people? Why don't you turn back to the right path? The path that Allah has chosen for you, which is to be with women. How old are you going to find in America in the home? Luffy circle to him? Yeah, mon Allah says, I, I swear by your life. Speaking
about the Prophet Salaam, I swear by your life or prophet. They were intoxicated. And they were wild in their intoxication, not physically or not drunk, like with alcohol, but the desires and corruption of their of their sexual desires and the sexual corruption had them drunk. So panela and this, by the way, is something that you can observe today in people who are addicted like severely to pornography, were addicted severely to these basic animalistic desires. That it is like a person who is unconnect just can't control himself or herself.
Like the one who's drunk like the person who's drunk can doesn't know what he's doing. The one who is uncontrolled in in their desires, and then their addictions. They act the same way. So hon Allah, like the rationality is all gone. So Allah describes their punishment for an Atomos saya thereupon the blast of our punishment
Took them at sunrise and the punishment was so severe for Jana Leah has returned the town upside down but um de la him Hey Jonathan means to jail and rained upon them stones of clay in that is a sign for a lesson in that lesson for those who can learn a lesson in nephew Delica I tell little mutawa see me in that is a sign for those are novoline I'm getting a lot
more Iberian MNL arena at the Summer Manila Shia. We are Toby Runa parinama. So this is what he's saying. Like the power explains this. He says this is the people who think that people ponder
if you give, if you remove a law from your life, and you give into your base animalistic desires, and there is no limits to morality, there's no boundaries to morality, everything is a go Everything is fine as long as it pleases you and as long as you're, you know, consenting, right, if that is that if that what happens, people as the deviance of sexuality and corruption descends to a point where a person acts with no limits. And in that is a sign limit or see mean for those who can learn a lesson. And this is a deep surah in a deep lesson. It is a still there on the highway. And in that is a sign for those who are truly believers. There is a story of a car that people have a cup, Allah
says these are the people of the wood. And according to the scholars of the year, this was the people who used to worship You know, trees, they would think that their spirits in the trees shortly when the sun was sent to them, but they did not listen. And thus they were also they also perished. When I got cast number of horrible Angel mursaleen Elijah, the surah, is named after them. The people of the hedger also rejected Our Messengers, who are the messengers in the plural, the messenger to them was was someone these were the people of ads, and they had, I'm sorry, this is the people of the booth and they had received the Prophet of Allah solid. Okay, one Prophet, but denying
one prophet is like denying all prophets. So Allah uses the plural here, almost Celine, they were given our signs, we gave them our signs, but they turned away, they used to carve dwellings in the mountains and lived in security, they thought that they could protect themselves from the punishment of Allah, but Allah is the one who protects and provides and his protection as the ultimate, but mostly had the most vahini blast overtook them in the morning, and then whatever they had acquired was of no use to them. An interesting point to note, a lot of there's two prophets who then solly that I mentioned in the Quran that are not mentioned in the Bible, okay, and then of course the
Prophet was some to these two prophets are Arab in origin, they were like original Arabs are then removed were originally Arab tribes before even its marine Allah Salaam had moved to Mecca. Alright, so Allah, Allah to it's an interesting note that he provides their names. He provides the tribe, and he provides the place where they lived, for example, the people of odd lived in the place of a cough, and who the lesson was sent to them. The people of thermwood lived in the place of hedger and Saleh Ellis Lama center them. The other prophets, like Luther SLM with the Quran doesn't mention where he lived, because it's known through, it's known, you know, historically where he lived other
scriptures, other people knew about that story, but the ones that others don't know about, like the people of the Quran provides a little extra information. And that is a beautiful style of the Quran. And that also shows that the Quran isn't original revelation. Right? The Koran isn't like plagiarizing. And as we'll see sort of nahal makes that argument today that they say that the Quran is plagiarized. How can it be plagiarized? When it's an original Arabic production when it's an original original Arabic content, its style and its in its content is unique. How can it be copied? Right and plagiarize? And one of the evidences for that is this that a lot spagnola mentions in it
these prophets and tribes that were not known to other civilizations more detailed, and they're mentioned, and others that are known and well known. All the other details are left alone, but the ones that are important, the ones that are, you know, contentious, and the ones that are really critical, are mentioned about these profits, something interesting to think about when it comes to the study of the blood, a conclusion the concluding remarks of the surah Allah motto says, Be patient, Allah will take care of you. He says no, Allah has created the skies and the earth in truth, okay, all that that's in there in truth in this era and the Day of Judgment is surely
Coming first, what is Sahaja mean? Oh Prophet, you overlook their faults with gracious forgiveness, the surah started by them saying all sorts of unacceptable insulting hurtful things to the prophets, Allah. Allah tells the Prophet, don't reciprocate. If someone is being hurtful, don't reciprocate, the hurt, someone's is harming, don't reciprocate the harm and the harm and the hurt, you know, you don't have to stay in a situation where you keep, you know, experiencing harm that should end but don't reciprocate it, foster his self help me to the contrary, overlook with graciousness, okay, because Allah is the one who's in charge Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, the creator, the knowledgeable
one, he is the provider, he's the protector. Okay, focus on the good that you've been given. If you feel the need to extract revenge, focus on the good that Allah has given you what artina cassava mineral masani, we've given you the seven off four sided verses and the great for an Don't strain your eyes towards the world the benefits we have bestowed on some of them. Don't let that be the thing that bothers you, eats you up makes you sad. Don't look at what others have. Desiring that. One that doesn't allow him no grieve over them. Work field General, meaning lower the wing of your mercy for the believers, meaning your focus should be on the good that you've been given. Focus on
the poor and that you've been given the guidance you've been given the blessings you've been given, focus on that not the things that others have, if others have been hurtful and harmful or profit, like the store began with them saying hurtful, harmful things, profit, ignore them with the gracious ignore,
turn away from them and overlook graciously, because that is the beautiful way and that is the way we
take care of ourselves, our own mental and spiritual health. And also that's the way we focus on connecting to Allah and hoping that our good Alas, will inspire the haters to stop hating, and maybe they come towards Islam. Right. And that is all such a beautiful thing that our prophets I'm used to do, and that's why you see his staunchest enemies would become his closest allies. Also, Allah says that you know, it hurts right. When Allah and naka de Luca Maya who know me know it is very difficult distresses you to hear what they say. But you should, again, focus in hertz, a Keep going, keep going for some time there have become a co minister, God, glorify Your Lord with his praise and
prostrate yourself to Him. continue to do that continue worshiping Allah, Allah had to kill your pain until death comes to you. What is the remedy for being hurt by people? Right? It's not to hurt them in return. It is to ignore them graciously. Okay, it's to focus on the good that we've been given. It is to glorify a lost pantalla. It's to be with couldn't minister Jeannine. The expression here gives you the idea that you are from the ones who are prostrating, you're with people who are prostrating. So surround yourself with people who are like minded, who will help you, not those who hurt you, people who you feel good around them, and they're good for your dunya and akhira. Not
those were bad for your dunya and bad for your assets. This is a beautiful message the Quran gives, when it comes to the how to deal with hurtful people and hurtful things that are said to a person and continue upon this path. Why bother about it again, until the thing that is certain comes to you. And eliakim here is death. Also your cane could be here conviction or lower limb that continue worshipping Allah until you convince that Allah is definitely the truth, there is no doubts left. And then the hurt the people have have put you through has now taken a bad seat. So it's a beautiful surah and then there's a beautiful symmetry and how the sewer began with people saying hurtful
things to the prophets, Islam and how Allah consoles them at the end of how to deal with that hurt. We ask a lot to allow us to have that kind of graciousness as well. I mean, a link between the end of the ledger and the ledger and the surah hedger ends with had taken the opinion until that comes to you certainty. certainty for sure is at a moral law, the decree of a law has come up that is a day of judgment. It is near it's at hand for that as the start you don't seek to hastin it Don't try to ask for punishment. That's what the police will do a lot smarter says don't do that. So Hannah, what Allah I'm usually cool, holy, he is an exalted above what they associate, he sends angels and
the the, the root jabril Islam
he sends that to
Whatever he wants, that is he chooses whoever he wants to be a prophet, and Andrew, that war and the hula ilaha illa Anna mourn that I am the only one worthy of worship, but the pools of fear me, he created the heavens and the earth for a true purpose, with purpose Alakazam Amati will, will have the creation in His Majesty has a purpose and the purpose of this great majesty of Allah and this surah is particularly is to recognize a lot of blessings and to thank Allah blessings and the amazing blessings that Allah has blessed us with the earth and the sky.

Nothing is very strange. Look at where you came from. You
came from literally nothing It drops from before that you weren't anything. How is it that you exist? A large part of Allah is the one who brought you into existence.

Alaska is Iran, how evil of a burden it is a bakery. Then Allah says about the believers contrast that with the attitudes of the believers. I number 30. What is it number 30. Say?

And what that implies is they say unzila, hiren couldn't hide all that he has revealed, its goodness upon goodness, and more goodness, all that there is in the revelation is just
goodness, SubhanAllah. And that is the beautiful attitude of the believer, he thinks or she thinks he knows, or she knows that the Scripture is a source of goodness in this life, and a source of goodness in the next life. And that's when Allah says about them, then let us know if you have the dunya Hassan, those who do good in this life will have good, right they will have a good reward and a nice life, whatever that will accurately fade. But the next life is where they will truly see the fruits of their hard work that will be even better.

For men whom man had Allah, there are those who Allah guided men whom man Hakata labor Allah, and there's others who are deserving of ruin. So go travel the earth and see what happened to those who
rejected the messengers, okay? And Allah says, you know, the blessing of Allah is he chooses who believes in that is Allah who down for in the Lucha Libre demon you listen if you are eager or prophet to guide them that God does not guide those whom he lets go astray. Okay because of their rejection. It is a last choice he shows the truth to all and people are free to choose but the one who chooses that's a gift that Allah gives him or her that don't feel that ability that is coming from Allah no one can push another person into believing no one can do that it's a god given gift and we should be thankful that Allah has chosen us for this God given gift of the blessing of
guidance Okay, a lot of other talks about
