His name is Zachary. Yeah. Excellent. So Korea, the prophet of Allah. Okay. And Zakaria, the prophet of Allah has a child
which we will learn today inshallah, about his children are about his child, excuse me. by the name of Yeah, yeah. Very nice. Yeah. Okay. So that is the family tree that I wasn't I was unable to draw it in a way where you can see how the wife will be blind. The wife was looking here are actually sisters, but I hope you get the point. Or the understanding here. Now. We know
the name of the wife of Avalon. Her name was Hannah. Okay. I know this is one hand out here with us. Yes. And that's the law. So that's where you are. Maybe we can spell it with that. Like that, huh? Anyway, you guys know who else like like any other names? Or any other person by the name handle? any relatives or something?
Okay, so if you do, that's where the name comes from that you know, a Muslim person who's named
the mother of Miriam.
Who is of course the grandmother of Isa. That's why a lot of the Muslims would name their children. Their girls, Hannah. Yes. You guys are with me?
Yes, okay. Awesome. Okay. So, wife of Iran is Hannah, they had Miriam, only one child. So what we'll do today is we will learn in sort of an Emraan. Right, we're going to learn in sudo RM Ron the important themes of addressing the Christians, IP addressing the, the Christians now last part, Allah spoke about that, you know, we spoke about this last time. This is a theme that runs throughout the study of the surah. What is true faith? What is a man actually mean? Yes. So a man means to worship Allah alone. We talked about that in quite a bit last quite a bit of detail last time. But now let's today talk about addressing the Christians. Okay. And the story of the story of
the family of
family have been. Yes, indeed. All right. Let us open up the Quran from Ayah number
Ayah number 33. Okay, and I need two volunteers.
like two answers. Who are those two hunters
Have Jaffer with me. Yes. Jafargholi volunteer. Yeah. Okay, great. And I've managed to volunteer. Okay. All right. I've got a hand can you read the Arabic? Okay, Joffrey read the English okay. Bismillah R Rahman Al Rahim Allah has stopped them oh no How are they Brahim? Imran Allah Allah mean?
chose Adam and Noah and the family of Abraham and the family of
above all his creatures, the family of so how many families are listed here? Or how many people excuse me are listed here.
four right Adam? Noah, which is no Hello, Sam. Abraham who is
awesome. And number four.
I mean, I'm wrong. I'm wrong. Okay. Now, what you can notice is that these are four people in Iran is actually the person who is not a prophet here. Okay. in Milan here is not a prophet, Ibrahim Al Assad was a prophet nor nor was a prophet, and other Muslim is a prophet here. But Allah, Allah says the family of Abraham, the family of Abraham, that includes all the bunnies that are ill, and all the bunny is married. To all the bunnies, even all the bunny, smile, bunnies through eel. The descendants of bunnies that are eaten you might remember this. But if you don't refresh your memory when we studied bunnies about you then SoTL bacara bunnies are ill are the children of his hammock.
Yes, it is how can you?
Correct. And among the people of benissa eel very later on comes Moosa and many, many generations later, centuries later counts.
Isa and he's the last prophet sent to me, Israel. He said Sam is the last prophet sent to
so when Allah says the family of Abraham that actually already includes the family of Iran, because family of Iran is from Venetia in
you guys are with me. Yes. Okay. But the last ones I wants to highlight the family of Emraan here, because the surah is going to be what is the theme here?
Are the Christians I mean, addressing the Christians? Yes. So that is why we are going to talk about the family of I'ma Ron, you guys with me?
Now, here's an interesting observation. There's four names here, right? 1234 in the translation, how many of those four names are written in their, you know, Latin or their biblical equivalent? biblical equivalent, for example, would be like Mussa the biblical equivalent would that be Moses? Right? Yes, me. How many of these four of these four names gave Adam? Noah? Abraham Emraan? How many of these four are written in their biblical equivalent to
two? Okay, any other ideas? Huh? Two or three?
Two or three? Okay. No problem. Hamza. Thank you for coming out. Two or three. Okay. So is Noah written in? The it's no other biblical version of no? Yes. Yes. Okay. Is Abraham the biblical version of Ibrahim? Yes. Adam and Adam. Right. I mean, you get some useful even wanted right out of them. You will read the same way, right? Yes, he probably referring to the biblical version hit right.
Okay. But I'm Ron, is this the biblical version or the equivalent of it?
Yes. Yes or no? How many people say yes?
Or if you don't know, you can just say you don't like idk or something. idk.
But like, just for this the way the name sounds? Do you think it sounds like a biblical name a moron?
No, not really. Ah, does it sound more like an Arab name? Yes, it does sound like an error. In fact, the biblical name of a moron is a
joette I can't I can't pronounce his name. I got I gotta find the Google translation or the Google pronunciation for this. Okay. All right. This is the Google kids don't pronounce How to Pronounce okay.
Yo, Kim, you're Kim.
That is the biblical name. Huh? You are Kim.
That was actually the equivalent to who Imran is okay?
According to trust Christian tradition, this is the father of Mary, the mother of Jesus. All right. Sounds good people. So it's interesting Alice mother actually names him or her the translations usually just call him a moron.
And not by his biblical name. All right, now why is that? I don't know. But in reality this is I just wanted to point that out to you guys. Okay, now we have this hamdulillah we have established that Allah is going to talk about address the Christians and particularly the family of Emraan okay. He says about them. My name is electrified reason this and Jafar if you there
Can I can I read the Arabic Sure. Who's this? JOHN? Jaffa Jeffrey will read the Arabic Okay, great. monument read the English. Okay. Yay.
me on Eileen. They are the offspring of one another god years and Nosal. Ah, they're the offspring of one another. Right. How so?
Adam, Melissa is the father of humanity. Correct? Yeah. What about his new from the children of Adam? Yes. Yes. Is the Brahim from the children of Adam? Yes. Yes. Is it Ron from the children of Adam? Yes. Okay. How about Ibrahim from the children of No. Yes, there's a good chance. Yes, there's a good chance that the Brahim Hassan was a descendant of Muhammad Salah is Iran, a descendant of Ibrahim 100% 100%. Right. So you see, that's what Allah says. They're all related. They're all you know, it's like a shared,
shared shared, family's extended family that extends millennia, right 1000s of years. And this is an important thing to put on, is linking us to our predecessors, from way back. This is very important. We have to understand this, you have to know, I have some sort of appreciation of your lineage. You see, our lineage, our forefathers, you know, our great, great forefathers, who were they read should know this or find out about this? Because you see how, how far apart are other men know, and Ibrahim and Emraan, Adam and Emraan are 1000s if not 10s of 1000s of years apart? Right? Or Adam? Ibrahim and Emraan are at least 1000s of years apart, not 1000s 1000s
at least between five to 8000 years apart, yet. The connection between the two is established. You know like this is how a loss Potter speaks about people they don't like we're honored to be part of the profits isms of the oma of the Prophet Salaam we should know what our lineage is, right? This is a very important thing. We should you know find our parents about this or ask our parents about this. All right now, a lot smarter says it's called a demo to Imran All right, actually, let's get another.
I want one volunteer but this time a girl volunteer.
let's see. Let me pick somebody. How about Hannah Ahmed? Since that your name is you are the name of Morocco. Iran is your name.
Can I read the English? Yes, English. Of course. I'll read the Arabic. How's that? Yeah. All right. Ready? Okay. It's called the Morocco a Moroccan Arabic Arabi in Nina's out to lock mfe belt plenty more how Ratan Tata pop Bell meanie in
me all Eileen.
Remember when the wife of Emraan said, My Lord, I have dedicated what is in my room entirely to your search service. So accept this from me. You are the one who hears and knows all. But I'm Walmart. Paulette, Rob be in the Walmart.
When she gave birth, she said, My Lord, I have given birth to a girl
while law who are alone will be my Walmart.
While I said that God will get it
God knew very well what she had given birth
to a male to a male is not like a female. Well nice to have moriyama in me need to have big re yet Amina, shame on you Raji I have named her Mary and placed her and her children in your protection from the rejected.
Excellent one last time do you want to read this? And then Hannah can translate for us. Okay, Michelle
Raji Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, Fattah pod Bella hi Rob boo ha de carboline has any
better Bed Bath and has been like a fella has a caddy Yeah.
Her Lord graciously accepted her and made her grow and goodness and interested her to the care of sakarya
Ghulam, Allah Allah Hezekiah de la bella Jeddah.
every time to carry a visitor in her chamber, he found some provision with her.
All am ODM and lucky had Karla to Armenia in de la.
In Allah Hi, Oh, my
He asked Mary, where did this provision come from? She replied, this is from God God provides or whoever he wills without measure. All right, thank you very much, Hannah. And I have also got a man and Jaffer for reading and translating. This is the passage where last mile starts to talk about the family of Iran. At first and last month, I mentioned that they are offspring of each other, right? They're all related to each other. Yes. It's one large family. Then he starts to talk about in Morocco to Imran the wife of Imran. The name of life of a Miranda we find in the books of history is Hannah. She is the one who is at this point. She is pregnant. she's expecting a child. Okay, now
she's expecting a child. The child could be a boy or a girl. Correct? you agree with that?
Yes. Okay. What do you think she thinks she's expecting? a boy or a girl? A girl. Okay, I want you to type. Do you think she's expecting a boy? Yes or no type? Yes. If you think it's a boy that she thinks she's expecting?
Does she think she's expecting a boy?
Ah, so some of you are saying yes. Some of you saying that she thinks she's expecting a girl. Okay. In reality, she thinks she's expecting a boy. Do you know why? Two reasons. Reason number one, when she gave birth, she recognized it's not a boy. It's a
girl. And that's what she says My Lord has given birth to a girl that tells you she was what
expecting it to be a boy. Right?
You see, the thing is, at that time did not have ultrasound today you can have like ultrasound and then you can know what the gender of your child is. And then you can have that silly gender reveal party.
Right? Not all of them are silly, but most of them are.
But at that time, you wouldn't know until the child is born. Once the child is born, then you know, it's a boy or a girl. She thought it was a boy. It turned out to be a
a girl. Now, the second thing that's very interesting is she says, My Lord, I have dedicated what is in my womb entirely to your service. Okay.
In Christianity, there's something called a monk. Do you know what a monk is?
monk? Who knows what a monk is? I'll spell it out for you and I'll show you what a monk is.
Well, a lot of TV series My God. Okay.
Can someone explain to me what a monk is? Before I show you the Wikipedia entry for
anybody say it I'm not gonna there's no wrong answers. Just to say
Doesn't get married. Okay, someone who doesn't get married very good. Number one. Excellent. Who's Abdullah?
Let me write this out Who? Or what? Who, what is a monk? So number one, the law said doesn't get married. I like that. Okay.
Someone who dedicates their entire life to Christianity is Allah says very good as a copy paste what you just wrote. Anybody else have any other thoughts?
Someone living under poverty, poverty. Someone living under poverty generally, generally someone choosing
a simple life. Hmm, how about that?
Is that okay? Who was that as well speaking? Java, Java, right. Is that okay? Java? Yeah. Okay. Very good. Who is generally a monk a boy or girl? Boy or girl? Boy? Boy. Ah, historically, it's a boy. Huh? Okay, so the mum of Miriam,
the wife of a moron.
She is Hannah, right? She says, I would like my Lord. I want my child to be dedicated to your
to your service. ie I want him to be a
a monk. Hmm. Okay, You with me? Yes. Now? Do we have a concept of being a monk in Islam? Like, are you supposed to be someone who just lives on your own? worships Allah? 24? Seven, don't get married?
Is that is that something that we endorse?
as Muslims? What do you think? No. I mean, we will say yes, we endorse this.
100% No, we don't endorse this endorses lifestyle.
No, no, very good. Exactly. Because we actually don't do this. We don't the province ism didn't do this. The Sahaba didn't do this. All of the people that we look up to Don't do this. This was a, this was a bunny, sera le idea that got carried into Christianity. Okay, they got carried into Christianity. It was actually not even a Jewish tradition. It wasn't even from like the, the Jewish scriptures. It was a idea that he was around but he saw he. And then when he said Sam came on the scene, this was already there. And then the people who were doing this, who were, you know, monks started to gravitate towards Christianity, right? Because he said Sam lived a simple life. Right? He
was a he lived a very simple life. And he didn't get married, not because he didn't want to or couldn't. But that was what a law wrote for him at night before he was taken by Allah to the sky. He didn't get married. And he spent his entire life's you know, calling people to, to the worship of Allah. Right. So people thought that's the that's the way to emulate Christ. Well, that's the way to emulate Jesus. And they started to adopt that lifestyle. Right? Even today. He
he priest, right in certain Christian denominations, right? A priest or a father, a father's like there. Mmm, like the big big
men, they don't get married. When they choose priesthood. The nuns, you know what a nun is.
Another is like a girl priest, essentially, right? a nun doesn't get married. She chooses this life of, of, you know, celeb celibacy, which means not to get married, and whatnot. Now, of course, this is not all Christians is a is a, you know, certain denominations. But the point is, this is what they used to do. So that's what this is talking about. This is saying, My Lord, I have dedicated what's in my womb to you. I want this, you know, child to be a monk. And that's why she thought it was gonna be a boy. Huh?
That's what she thought was gonna be a
boy. Ah, right now.
By the way, that's actually a very interesting word here in Arabic. mojarra.
mojarra. Hmm. Does anybody know what the word mojarra this word, huh? She says I want him to be
Mohammed mojarra. Run. You will meet people. Yes. Okay. What are the letters of this of this Arabic word? There's a meme. Ha rah rah.
Elif, okay, we actually don't count the Elif to be part of the letter of the word By the way, okay?
we don't we don't. It's not. It's like, it's just it's a pronunciation just spelling rule. Okay? But in reality, the letters of the word are meme. Ha, rah, rah. Okay, meme? Ha, blah, blah. Okay, now from these letters, you guys agree with this? Yes or no?
Are you with me people? I know. You don't even know that one. Yeah, because there's supposed to be only one row. There's two rounds, though, right? Yeah.
There's also another
so it's $3. three rounds. But for the sake of simplicity, we're gonna write two rounds. Is that okay? I've got a one. Okay. Okay. Now, every Arabic word has a has three root letters. 99.9% of Arabic words have? How many letters? letters? Three root letters for 99.9%. of Arabic words. Okay.
All right. What are the three? who that is? Do you think in from these four? meme handle? meme? That's one possibility.
Ah, this is actually this is the root letters, root letters,
or the word mojarra? are hardrada. From this word, you get the idea of
Ria, what do you want? remains? Freedom. Freedom. Hmm. Also from this, you get the word harder, which is hot.
Hot, hot, which means
The idea is,
here's the point of how to make money and my son's mom.
Hannah, she is saying a lot. I want this child to be free.
In the eyes of Hannah, freedom is freedom from the desires of the world. Freedom is actually submitting to Allah. Isn't that beautiful? Yes, right. In her eyes. And I think this is actually a really beautiful point. We actually should think about this, because we hear this word tossed around a lot. Freedom, freedom, freedom.
What is actual freedom? Like what is true freedom? What
is true freedom? Really? That's a question. Yes. And I would say,
you know, true freedom really is being free to worship Allah without the burdens of worrying about what people think. without, you know, just the peace of knowing that you are, you know, like you are in sync with what your Lord wants. That is true freedom, I would say.
Would you guys agree with that?
That's I know.
That's a subtle point. That's a really like, it's like a little subtle hint that Allah leaves in the Quran. This is the beautiful thing about the Quran, you guys, Allah has these little subtle little hints that he drops all over the Quran. And it's like little gems, like hiding in the Quran. You gotta do like a scavenger hunt to find them. You say, and when you find them, it's got like a real nice point. This is the point one of the points that allows makings, truly to be free. In this world, means you submit your Lord, not that you have detach yourself from the Lord. And now you can do whatever you want. That's not freedom. You're a slave to your desires. True freedom is you detach
yourself from the world and focus on Allah and being in sync with his commands. Anyway, now she has. She wanted her child to be a monk.
But it turned out to be a girl. So she's like, how can a girl be a monk? Right? That's why she's perplexed. I've given birth to a girl, but
I have named her Maria Maria, and muddy Muslim, despite being a girl became one of those people who lived as a monk, she would worship Allah alone. She would live a simple life, dedicate herself to allows worship, and that's who she was. and critically, she didn't get married. Okay. She did not get married. She lived by herself, and who is taking care of her. The person
in giro for his
Zakaria, right. How is the career related to her? Well, the career is married to Miriam's. Holla. Right. Zakaria is married to the holla of Miriam, the wife of Zakaria, his sisters with the wife of the mother of Miriam their sisters. So her husband's Korea is taking care of Maria. Okay. Taking care of her by giving your food because she's now working right. She's dedicated herself to worshiping Allah alone. Okay. Now Maryam.
This is something that's a miraculous thing happening to money, Melissa, she's in like, the wilderness by herself. She has like a house, or like a monastery. She's worshipping Allah there. Okay, that's all she does. Is she cooking food? No. Is she harvesting food? No. Is he growing food? No, no. But every time that Korea would come to her to bring her food, huh, he would find that she has fruits and food with her.
So he was like, Where are you getting this from? Where did you get this from? Oh, Miriam. She says this is from God. This is from Allah. Allah provides for whoever he wills without measure. This is a miracle that Allah would do to
set the stage for the next miracle. Which was what?
Which is what
work of Lisa? All right. You see, Maria Melissa lamb, Alaska, is showing that she is being chosen by Allah.
he is getting food from Allah miraculously as she is in her monastery. And that's when she's young. And still, you know, you know, in her service of Allah subhanaw taala. That is the you can say the miracle that precedes the bigger miracle. Which is the birth of Santa Santa. Yes, the birth of Eastern Islam is coming up in the next page, but I wanted to ask you something, you guys, okay. Look at this. Ayah? Well, they said that Gurukul huzzah.
The translation of that is a meal is not like a female these are these are tangents. You know, what a tangent? Isn't it? Guys? Enjoy this. What?
a tangent. Right. So in math,
a tangent is like this, okay.
You see this like a graph here, right?
And then this point, if you were to draw a straight line,
you know, from this point, that doesn't intersect, you know, the point doesn't go through the point it's like, you know, touching only the point of the, of the of the graph, that's called a tangent in, in math, okay. When we say a tangent, and tangent is a related point.
It's not the main story, the main story is like, this is going like this. But this is a side point that Allah makes. That is worth our time. Right? So I gave you guys one tangent, right? The tangent of freedom. Yes.
I'm gonna write this here. Tangent.
Tangent, number one.
Freedom. There's a second tangent that a lot goes on here.
Which I think is very important for us. Which is gender roles. is
are men and women the same?
That's tangent number two that Allah goes on. It's a very interesting tangent. What does he say?
He says, Are they the same? Does he say yes or no to that in the Quran?
he says no, right. Why do you say that? Now what what is the transition of the ESA? A male is not like a female. A male is not like a female. Mm
hmm. So is this statement? This is what Allah says. I am number one slide number I had number 36. Yes.
336 The last one that says
a meal is not like a female.
That's what the ISS right?
People Are you with me? Yes.
Okay, do you agree with this? Yes or no?
How many of you agree with it.
If you disagree with us, I also like to ask you what your thought is.
It's an interesting tangent. are men and women the same? Father says they're not the same. There is.
Is that is the physiology of the two genders? The same? physiology means like, the,
the, the, the, the biological makeup.
So for example, they have the same private parts. No, they don't. Hmm. Is there a difference? In the way? Boy is when he reaches puberty versus a girl is when she reaches puberty? Yes. Very, very clear, marked difference. Hmm. Is there a difference in the way?
We, let's look at sports, right? How many of you watch tennis?
How many of you don't like like, like, watch tennis or something?
Very, very few people. That's shocking.
Okay, how many, you know, tennis This sets, right? So you have like, a set and you want to set the new if you win enough sets, you win the game. Okay.
Okay, so how many sets do the men play?
differently? five sets? five sets. Okay, best of five. Okay, you win three. You win the game.
Okay. Okay. No, that, huh? Okay. Okay.
I thought this would be an easy example. But I guess people already know tennis. You guys.
How many sets do the girls spray play in tennis?
best, best three write up. It's not like I'm not trying to like read into
a gender. Like, gender roles because of what a game is like, but I'm trying to highlight to you is even in our time today. If you look at men and women's sports, right, and you can say men sports, these are like the pinnacle of like, Man or manhood. So to say, athletically and the women's sports, these are the pinnacle of like, women, athleticism, even in that you can see the ceiling for the men is higher.
Just it's an observation. You can see that in every sports league, where there's men and women. Okay, tennis, NBA vs. W NBA, huh?
You can go down the line. Okay. The point I'm trying to make is, this is something that society acknowledges in one way or the other. Okay. It may not endorse the idea because we're told no, no, everyone has the same bile. You know, gender is a construct. That's a social construct. Right? But the biology is telling us something else. Right? The biology is like facts, right? You can argue biology. That's how you are right? That is telling us something else. And then there is a acceptance of that, even today, in the way sports leagues are.
What do you what do you all think of this? This is something Have you noticed this?
I know it's a tricky point.
But what I find interesting is this. This is something the Koran says. And in Islam, what we say is that men and women are the same.
Spiritually, right. So if I commit a sin,
I am sinful. If a girl commits a sin, she's sinful. If I do a good deed I'm, you know, getting reward and the good don't go there's a good dish, he gets reward. There's no difference. Right? In Islam, for example, if a boy was to commit the act of adultery, right, having intercourse outside of marriage, he is just as bad as a girl who's doing something outside of marriage as well. They're both equally bad, spiritually, they're the same. Hmm. But now what we say is men and women
different roles and responsibilities
And this is based on the premise that a meal is not like the female and that biology supports it.
the biology of the man and the woman supports this. Now this is not to say one is better than the other or every single man is better than every single woman. No, of course not. That's not the point. Okay.
But, and then that's not the point because here Allah spotless, saying that a meal is known as the female because this female must
is not like any other male
males than the average or even the above average meal is not going to reach the level of money and Manila. Okay, so this is actually in a way or not in a way it is explicitly to highlight the excellence of medium
but it's also laying down important principle that our religion, which is that, you know, they have different roles and responsibilities in this stuff spiritually. Yes, they are the same. Spiritually, you know, there was the wife of the Prophet was asked the prophets of Salaam she's like, How come? How come it is that mad and Allah knows curfew Quran gamma euskara region, how come? We're not mentioned in the Quran? Like the men are? Right? She was like, how can we not talk to her in the Quran? Allah speaks about men or to men all the time. And as a response to her question, in fact, not just the wife of the Prophet on cinema, but also the sister in law of the Prophet, the wife of
Jaffa, all of these women and there's another lady, I forgot her name. Three at least ladies had the same question. How come the Quran is speaking so much about men and not about women? And the answer to that question, wasn't this is number 35. Sore number 33 a lot smarter reveal this ayah saying Surely, men and women who have surrendered to God must Amina one Muslim add men and women who believe me Nina will mean that men and women who are obedient on Athena will call it that men and women that are truthful so that you never saw the court. Men and women who are patient, sloppy the nasaga men and women were humble. harsher in our harsh EOD men and women who are charitable Mutasa
in our motto, depart. Men and women were fasting saw him he never saw him at men and women who protect their chastity. Have you Lena flujo? What have you learnt men and women who are mindful of God, they're getting along with you know, with a lot, they're the same, or the Lola whom have forgotten, or agilon or vema gone is ready with forgiveness and an immense reward spiritually.
They're the same, the
the achievement of the pet of paradise
for the both of them is the same. It just depends on the person. Right? That accountability is the same depends on the person, you see.
But then there are different roles and responsibilities. Because our biology is different. So this is actually a very interesting tangent that goes on in Surah number in this surah. All right, now back to the story of money, Melissa, Allah, okay. My name is Salaam becomes a monk, and she is experiencing miracles.
And now she experiences another miracle.
What does that miracle
Anyway, you know,
birth of Isa, the birth of Jesus. Okay, now, I'm actually skipping the part of zaccaria. Right. There's a story of zaccaria here, too. Okay. But I will talk about Zakaria a little bit later. And he's important. He's really important, of course, but I want to focus on mariamman ASAP. Okay, Mary and Jesus. Okay, here. I like to see us get a couple of volunteers.
Do we have a couple of volunteers?
here when we said you won't read the translation?
The angels part? Yes. The angel said,
Oh, hold on. Can Can we have someone recite the Arabic first and then you say, Okay, I don't have anyone to write the Arabic first university. Oh, who was that? Jennifer? Yeah. Okay. I'm about to do the next one. Is that okay? Okay. Sure. All right, Jennifer, go ahead.
What is gone,
eager to hear Maria when
he was beyond?
The angel said, Mary, God has select you and purified you. He has selected you over all the women of your time. Excellent. And how can you be the next one? Thank you, Jennifer.
Yeah, Maria mukono de la Viki was Judy verrucae email logging. me sir.
Oh, Mary main truly devout to your sustainer and prostrate yourself in worship and bow down to those who bow down before him.
You've got a dilemma.
You get Maryam in law how you mesh in a law how you best she rookie Kelly Matty mean?
You smooth messy How are you seven IE seven new mommy mo g feed dunia, what are you wamena mukava b
when angel said oh marry your Lord gives you good news of a word from him. His name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary honored in this world and then the next and one of those who are granted nearness to God. Awesome, thank you very much Jafar, or hum promesa, for reading, I really appreciate that from the law. So here is now the second the bigger miracle, the bigger miracle is first angels come to medium and tell her he marry Allah has selected you, God has chosen you, and has purified you and selected you over all the women
of your time. In fact, in fact, we actually say that she was the number one woman of all time, right you could say she is the goat
is actually a Hadith of the Prophet slum. But this the prophets have said in a Hadith, that the women like in the in terms of ranking number one on the rank, a woman is medium. And number two, is hadiya the way for the most of them. And number three is Fatima, the daughter of the Muslim, the wife of Ali and number four anyway, number four is
number four, Ico. ico and who was Asya?
The wife will frown right? The wife of her own. Imagine the wife of the worst tyrant ever. The man who killed babies as his domestic policy, that's what he would do kill babies. That's the policy of his government.
His wife, right? The look at the look at the irony here. His wife ends up being
number four all the time.
And who did she raise?
More so she raised moussaka Musa was brought as a baby or she rescued baby Musa from the river. Huh. And
moneymaxim of course, reraised Isa. Now interesting story. Interesting thing here.
Marie Melissa was a single mother, right? household.
She didn't get married, right? She wasn't married. And asiya was a mother.
to her. She wasn't she didn't have her own children. Okay.
She was a mother to a child she had adopted, and essentially, the father was absent.
And in fact, in this case, not just absent, he was abusive. The fifth one was the pharaoh Pharaoh was extremely abusive.
You see how the four of the top two, two, excuse me, the the top four women were women who either were single she married was single mother, or a woman who had to navigate the difficulties of a very tough marriage, and the difficulties of not having her own children.
It's not like your children, like whether you have them or not, that doesn't define who you are as a woman. That's the point is it? It doesn't define you.
And, you know, by the way I see a situation doesn't mean that you stay in an abusive relationship. But keep in mind, the husband of Asya is not any other person that is a, that person kills without, you know, blinking an island, right? So for her to preserve life was essentially to stay in that relationship. By the way, she would be killed, because he is the biggest tyrant of all time. We don't condone people to stay in abusive relationships. The point that aside is
the two of the four top women
were either not those who had children, or had difficult marriages, or are single mothers. That's an important little subtlety that's forgotten sometimes. Because we tend to, you know, just value people in different ways. That's not how that's not how I love these people. People are valued by the piety of their heart, the goodness of their heart and how much good they do for for for people and how much good they do for the sake of Allah. Right. That's how we value people. Now, my name and Islam is chosen. She's told by agents, you are chosen, and you're selected. Okay? What's the How do you like reciprocate that favor? How do we express gratitude, express gratitude
by remaining devout
by keeping you know staying committed to Allah by praying prostrating yourself and bowing down that's you know, that Salah right was to the worker Mr. rockier in
continuing to worship Allah and prostrating to him. Now, here Allah says the angel said, Mary, you're going to have a child
and this child is going to be a word from him. Okay, now I want you to help me out here.
Jesus the son of who?
The son of married, okay, he This is like our, this is a very This is a very very important moment in the Quran here. Okay. Jesus Sunnah marry
a word from him galima Kenny Mehta Minh who can imitate him main hoop, okay. His name is what his title is.
is what people
other than Messi See? What does lmsc mean?
It says D
the Messiah right? But in reality this is actually not a great translation the Messiah cuz we have like a different understanding of the Messiah. When you say a messiah you think of movie probably. Okay. But what actually means is the mercy is actually the one who cures with his touch. That's what actually the Arabic means. That's what the explanation is for and mercy, the one who cures with his touch.
Is this like a normal medical procedure? Or is this a miracle?
miracle. This is one of his miracles that he would cure with a touch of mercy. ie seven memoriam. Allah calls him What? Jesus the son of Mary,
over and over again the Quran, Jesus, the son of Mary, Jesus, the son of Mary, do you know why his name is why his full name is mentioned so frequently in the Quran?
Because one of the you never know you don't know who Moses that is right like the Quran doesn't say Moosa even, or Ibrahim even right or Mohammed bin Abdullah. That's why that is I mentioned full names of any prophet. Only one prophet his full name is mentioned and repeated. Isa, why?
Why the man you were saying something? mercy means like the person who
wipes those what I was gonna say, Oh, very good. Yes. wipes. That's correct. But my question is, he's the only Prophet whose name is mentioned. Like his full name is mentioned first and last name. Repeatedly not in one place. Why do you think that's the case?
Why? Because Allah wants to highlight. He had no father.
I liked he had no father now other men SLM. Right, him having no father is not like a contentious point. Everybody, all the religions agree to that. Right. But who says that Isa had a father?
A Christian say that and also the Jew said to write
the Koran is saying no, actually, he doesn't have a father. He his birth was a miracle.
A miraculous birth, unlike anybody else's birth. Okay. What do you have for dunya? Well, Acura is honored in this world and the next honored in this world and the next. This is what Allah says about him. All right, we're gonna talk about a lot about a sub.
Okay. Insha Allah next class, because this is something I don't want to go over time with you. But I want to list out next class with you all, how does Allah describe Jesus in the Quran? Okay, and how Allah describes Mary in the A, and why these two are so important to us. Okay, why these two are so important to us, and why we feel that we're actually the real followers of Jesus and Mary will talk about all that next week inshallah, along with how this transitions into addressing the Christians how the dialogue with the Christians takes place afterwards, in the surah inshallah sounds good, everybody.
