That is actually what we're going to focus on. The response to defeat of the profits are solid, like, how did he act out? Did he act out in a manner where he was extremely angry and frustrated and he was just blaming people left, right and center? Or did the profits of solemn act in a really gracious manner in a manner that encouraged change? You see that we're going to talk about that.

recap of Surah Al m Ron from the Battle of art.
All right. The first major battle that the person fought against his enemies was
The correct answer is
the Battle of battle. That was the first battle that the Prophet Salaam fought against his enemies, and they actually won that battle hamdulillah that was a victory for the believers. All right. Next one.
The second major battle that the prophets awesome fought against his enemies was
The correct answer is
the Battle of art. Yes, indeed. That was the second battle that he fought
in the, against his enemies. And that's the one we'll discuss it at length today. All right, third question. The third major battle of the prophet SAW Allah Islam fought against his enemies was
What do you think?
The correct answer is? The Battle of the trench? Yes. hamdulillah whether it was the first one, or the second, the trench is the third trench known as Alon duck, a very famous battle. These are the three most important battles in the life of the Prophet Salaam. We should know about them. Okay. Next question. Oh, we have a close game at the top here. Mashallah.
So one of the harder ones for us? Correct? Or the prophets? That's correct. What is offered? Or what is the type of food? A country, a city or a mountain?
Or hood? Of course, is
a mountain? Yes. It's not a country. It is a mountain that is outside the city of Medina.
Was ohad a defeat for the Muslims? No, or Yes?
The answer actually is Oh, what was the defeat? Yes, you guys are split on the decision here. And as we'll see, unfortunately, what was the defeat, the Muslims ended up retreating, they end up losing a lot of their family members. So it unfortunately, ended up as a defeat.
And this is the thing we sometimes like if the profit slump, only ever one, right in the only one in his life and never lost, that, in reality, his life would be something that we couldn't aspire to, you know why? Because we would never be able to live in a situation where we never lose.
So we have to learn how to deal with loss, through the example of the prophet SAW Salah, that's a very, very important part, if the promises of his life was like, perfect, and had no problems, and everything was divinely inspired. And everything was set by Allah, that he would be like an angel. We wouldn't we couldn't follow him. But he's awesome as a human being. He went through good times and bad times, victories and losses. And we learn from every one of those things. And that's why he is the role model for us the best role model. All right, next question.
We have how large was the original Muslim army? Original is the key word there.
But do you think people 1300 700 or 10,000
the original Muslim army was 1000 people correct. 100 in law, in the Battle of bed that they were 314, roughly 300. But in Ohio, they were 1000. Okay. Now that's not a very large army by though it's a very small army. The army of the people of Makkah was much larger in size, it was about two and a half times larger in size. So it was a very difficult battle, as is, but then a group of hypocrites turned around and left. And how many were left after the hypocrites left? How much of the army was left after these hypocrites had left the battlefield? What do you think people?
Wait, so the hypocrites were like in the army, and then they said, We don't want to fight. They were like in the Muslim army. That's correct, right? They were in the Muslim army. They're like, we don't think there's gonna be any fighting today. So we are going to get up and leave. Huh? That's what they said. They're like, if you don't think there's any battle today. Lo Nana Makita Allah La vida coup. If we thought there's gonna be any fighting, we would be here we wouldn't leave you. Right? But we don't think there's going to be any fighting whatsoever. So we're just gonna get up and leave.
Isn't that like, just very, very sad. mean? Very mean to Yes. Okay. So yes, that's the correct answer. It was only 700. About a third of the army had left. And that is a very, very tricky situation for the prophets of Allah. All right. Next question. Oh, and he has dropped from the top No, Ali.
Who was the chief? hypocrite let's see if we can remember his name. I made the question easy though. So you can just figure out even if you don't know his name,
the chief hypocrite was
called Abdullah even obey. Yes, that was his name. Of course, a worker Siddiq is the greatest Sahabi and the second graders have years or more. So they are not the answers. The answer is Abdullah bin obey. He was the chief hypocrite. He was the one who said, Hey guys, I don't think there's any fighting. Let's all turn around and go back home. So handle a very tough
don't move even if you see vultures eating our dead bodies was set to who the Prophet said this to who? The medics, the army, the archers are the people of Medina.
What do you think people?
He said that to the archers, the archers, if you remember the prophets or solemn, and placed them, he had placed them
on the hill on the little hill. And that was what he was going to do. He was going to allow the people of MacArthur come headfirst into the battlefield and the archers would rain arrows on them. With the back of the army being protected by the front of the army being protected by the archers, it was going to negate any tactical advantage that Quraysh had. That's why the Prophet said don't move there. It doesn't matter what happens. You remain there, and you keep firing your arrows. Very, very clear instructions. But then the question is
the archers did the archers leave their spots? True or false?
Like if you see vultures eating or dead bodies, that's like, the most cool thing that would happen that would actually make the archers move.
Well, what were the when the Prophet said that, man, what he meant was, even if we're all dead, no move. Don't do anything. Yeah, stay there, even if we're dead. So very, very clear instructions. But the archers are fortunately, did not follow those instructions. What these archers and Muslims like was this a haba? Yes, they were one of the greatest. The greatest. They were the greatest. However, they were participating in the battle with the problem their you know, the best of the best. Yet they made a mistake, right? That costed the Muslims everything. Yes. Battle? Yes. So panela last question.
The reason why the archers left their spots was greed.
true, false or true?
The correct answer is
it's true. And this is a very interesting point. Okay, that these are Sahaba the best of the best, yet. They're humans, they made a mistake. And they were overcome by things that humans are overcome by the or they were overcome by greed. They were overcome by, you know, their own interests. They are like, you know what, yeah, you know, it's done. It's done me one already. their own interests, they put that above the interests of the whole group, and specifically above the command of the club. That is, and that's not, we're not, that's not acceptable, right, of course. But that's how human beings are. And this is also less than you learn from the Battle of offered that as human
beings, even the best of the best, right? We are going to be, we're going to make mistakes, and we are prone to our flaws as human beings. We have a flaw as we are, you know, as human beings, we're greedy. We want things for ourselves. That's going to happen to everybody. You have to learn how to overcome those flaws. That is what Islam is there to teach us along with
all the other things such as the rituals that is really the lesson how to become a better person, okay? podium Ollie's second place a third place, Israel second place and first places of the mind Mashallah, you guys are awesome. jsoc one located.
Thank you very much. Well, hamdulillah so that was great. Thank you for participating in that. So, I'm gonna go back to talking about you know, as a recap of the battle, three main lessons that we want to speak about from this lesson three
Excuse me that we won't talk about today. One thing that I want to point out to you is that today is our last class actually. Okay, today is our, our last class
we are going to finish the add imraan today.
And then on next Saturday though at the same time, we have a very special event. Okay, same time we have this event, a call a lecture called for the love of Mohamed Salah Salaam by Sheikh Bilal is my shameless man, he is going to be joining us from South Africa. Do you know where South Africa is?
Yeah, it's so far away, is very far away. Okay. But he'll be joining us handler live. Just like you know, we are right now live together on zoom, he'll be joining us and he is awesome. hamdulillah. So I'm sure you all will learn a lot and would really, really benefit from his presentation. So we're going to do this like instead of my like me speaking next week is going to be him. Then I'm going to take a break for a couple of weeks and re
remake the the Quran for teens class. You know, relaunch the class inshallah with the study of Surah Nisa, the next surah okay, but obviously, we're going to continue studying, but we're probably gonna take a break for a couple of weeks, and maybe we'll start a semester in the end or middle of November, that goes all the way to the end of the year. Okay, so we're gonna probably now instead of just having a class every week, right, we're gonna make it so that every class is like a small semester, maybe six weeks, maybe seven weeks, something like that, maybe five weeks, right. So we will announce that inshallah Tada. But after the next week, we have the lecture, and then we will
have a break for a couple of weeks. Just make sure everything is organized and proper. You know, we have enough ability to, you know, let people know what's happening with our lectures and programs. And then inshallah we will relaunch this and I hope you guys will be there. But today we are doing the class part of sort of, lm Ron, lm Ron, and the three main things that we are going to talk about first is victory and defeat are part of life. That's the first thing. Okay, now, let's look at an idea of the Quran that it will explain this to us. Okay, and I need two volunteers, one to read the Arabic And the one to read the English. Okay.
Do I have two monitors?
all volunteer All right. Thank you, hon. You're gonna volunteer for the Arabic part. Okay. Somebody for the English part.
How about Israel? Israel. You with me?
Yes, right. Okay. All right. So can you read this the Arabic first and then we'll have Israel reading the English
ama sukham corofin for quad muscle como Cora. Cora.
Cora from Miss No.
harm one thing it's he says school. He says come on.
Miss Alma Mater handmades law.
what is called a Luda, we Lucha Beynon see
mananas What do you need to know what we don't see them income Shahada alone I mean, very little behind this is a very different liar by the way to reach you did a very good job my shoulder is set up.
If you have suffered a wound date, you have suffered a sin a similar wound. We bring these days to men by turn so that God may know those who believe and choose witnesses from among you. And God does not love the unjust Mashallah, very good. Okay. So this is what What's the number?
People you wouldn't need? What's the number 140 is number 140. Okay, this is in the middle of the description of what is happening, the Battle of a herd and all that things that are happening. Okay. In this
Last month it reminds the prophets of Salaam that victory and defeat are part of life. Okay, this is from Isaiah number 140 Okay, now what what is he saying? He says that
if you have suffered, they too have suffered a similar wound, right this is how, how, you know battles are, you know people are you are hurt and they will get hurt. This is how things work, okay? But also know that the world is not just a place this life is not a place where you will win unconditionally. That doesn't happen. If you're only winning and never losing. It's probably that you're not fighting someone who is that good? Right? Very, very rarely. Do you have someone who doesn't lose anything right? And you know, if someone continues to live long enough,
they probably will suffer defeats You see, or setbacks? Very rarely is it the case that someone goes through life with no defeats or nothing. This is what Allah is trying to tell the prophets of Solomon and all of us by extension, that we bring these these two men by turns, okay, they'll call a yamu Noda, will have been a nurse these days. It's like thou Allah Yuda, Will. This is the word here, Noda wielu it's the take turns, okay. So, a lost mother will give a turn to one group one day, one time and a turn to another group at another time. That is what he's saying. Okay, so sometimes when it's your turn, you'll you'll you'll win. Sometimes when it's someone else's turn, you will
lose. That is what he's saying. The point is, you have to learn how to cope with both things, cope with victory or deal with victory graciously. Right. You know, being a gracious you know, Victor, not someone who is, you know, arrogant and people
winning in life, huh?
Oh, can you guys hear me okay? Yes, you just logged out for a bit. Like when you said
the person Yeah.
Hello, by the other thing is,
we have to be, we have to be very much gracious in victory. But also, if defeat comes, we should be humble and we should realize this is part of life. And there is something that Allah wants to teach us. Okay, now looking at the ISS, Lia Allah Allahu la Vina amanu where takita min Koo Shahada, there is some things that are good even in the face of defeat. Okay, what is good in defeat? There's two things that Allah mentioned there. Okay. Number one, can you point to me number one from the translation? Can someone like maybe highlight what number one could be from this little passage that I have selected here? God may know those who believe Ah, number one is God may know those who
believe that's the first thing. Now of course Allah, Allah knows already Exactly. Who is a true believer and who is not okay. But here when Allah uses the word, Lia, Allah is Allah wants to show showcase true faith of the people, right? your true colors are only exposed. When times are tough. That's what happens, right? If when bad times comes, that's when a person's true personality reveals itself. Right? Would you agree with that? Yes or no?
Sometimes, like, if everything is good, you're like a nice person in your chill. But what happens when something bad happens? Right? That's when it's a true test of character. Right? Yeah, I agree. Yes, I agree. All right. What about the others? What do you what do people think? Do you agree with this, that bad times? difficult times? defeat is when you really show who you are like what you're made of? Right?
Yes, exactly. So what Allah saying is, yeah, Allah Allahu la Vina Amma? No, he's saying that he wants to showcase the ones who can handle bad times show the goodness of their character and the goodness of their character is coming from what
Amala VENA am a new form, the bad No, no. How does the source of like the reason why they're, you know, good, even in bad times, they're stable, even when things are unstable is because
They have what
they have pulled man.
That's the point. Right? So what I loved what I was trying to say is when you are experiencing defeat, and you handle that defeat, you know humbly and you learn from it and you don't act irrationally and you don't blame others and you don't make the defeat worse afterwards that is coming from if a person is able to do that and is able to handle themselves that is what a man does to a person. Okay, number one, what's the other good thing that oh other thing that could be a positive in defeat
from this ayah
can someone highlight to me what that would be?
That would be choose witnesses amongst you now this is not a great transition witnesses is not an excellent transition here. shuhada is the word. Shahada is the word a Shaheed Do you know what a Shaheed is?
People are the person who witnesses it. Also a person who witnesses that's a Shaheed correct, but a Shaheed is also someone there's another, another like meaning to it. Anybody know what a Shaheed is? Another meaning for Shaheed?
Anybody? No? No? Okay. I Shahid is actually what's called a martyr. Do you know what a martyr means?
a martyr is a person who was killed because of their religious or other beliefs. Okay.
Now, a martyr is someone who loses their life because of what they believe in. Are you with me? So how is a martyr someone who loses their life, like the one who's witnessing the way they are together, like the way they're the same is because, or the way the reason why the word is similar, or is the same for both of those cases, because
these people have given the ultimate witness to the man. Right? The ultimate testimony of their faith, like the ultimate statement that they can make about their belief is that they like you know, what we're willing to give up our lives for our, for our, for what we believe in, right. And that is something when a person does that, right, or person is chosen by a lot to be in that situation, they are actually in a very high ranking place in Paradise, extremely high ranking place in paradise. We see.
This is something that is a honor from God, we don't think of it as like a bad thing, we think of it as a good thing. In fact, we believe that these people who, who are, you know, who were killed as martyrs, defending their faith, are alive in the life of in the life of the grave, they're alive, and they're experiencing paradise, before even entering paradise, okay. And then once Finally, they enter Paradise, then their enjoyment is going to be even more. So that is actually what Allah says that sure people are going to lose their lives in defeat. But the other side of this is that those who lost their lives are going to have a really high rank in paradise. Now, what's interesting here
is, of course, we're not taught to like, be reckless with our lives or misunderstand the IRS, as such, okay. But what the Quran is trying to tell us is that even in defeat, there are positives, there is lessons to be learned from defeat. And there is even in bad circumstances, there is some good and that's a very, very important thing for a Muslim, a Muslim is always always able to know that when there is something bad, something is good, they're in it. It's we have to be we have to think about it. And over time, it will become clear what's good. Right? A law smart law says for in grocery use run in a mile or three, you saw, right with difficulty there is positivity, positivity
or ease. Exactly right. And he says that twice. And the reason is that in all difficult situations, we have to look for what's positive as well. That is how the believer is supposed to be not because this is like a thing that we do because it's
others are telling us, right? No, we're doing this because that's actually what our religion teaches us to do. So that is the thing that a lot squanto wants to teach us. That's the first main thing. For today, victory and defeat are part of life, but defeat this lessons there is even good in defeat the last part of the highlights for us, okay, the second thing is the response of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to the defeat. Are you with me people? Right. Second thing is, how did the Prophet son respond to this defeat? Now, let us recap what happened, right? And I'm going to ask you, yes or no. And you tell me. If that's the case? Are you with me people? Yes, I need you to type
the answers. And you could obviously say them too, if you like, but there are others. You guys need to type the answer. Okay. Did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam want to go outside of Medina to fight the enemy in an open battlefield? Yes or no?
He didn't want to but he came back back up from his decision, of course, but initially he was answered yes or not. What do you think? Oh, yes. Then that's what we think you mean? No, right. He didn't want to go, right? Yes. He doesn't want to go handler, so he didn't want to go. All right. But because of others, he was he had to listen to the people. Right. He wanted to, you know, keep his people together. Right? So he said, Okay, let's go out. Alright, number that's one. That's one thing. Okay. Number two, did the prophet SAW solemn?
Did he set up the army for success? Yes or no?
his strategy is strategy. Yes, yes. But as a number No. Because quantity No, this even without the number, the strategy would have one. Right? Yes. Because there would have been no way for the opposing larger army to attack them. That was how the prophets set it up. If everybody followed instructions, the army could not have attacked the Muslims. Because they were protected from the mountain from the back. Right. And from the front of the archers were just raining arrows on them. And they would have been no way. Alright, so that he set up the army for success. Did people was this? Did everybody follow orders? Yes or no? No.
No, right. The archers did not follow orders. The archers did not follow the orders of the prophet SAW Salah. And was that the cause of defeat? Yes or no?
No. That is the archer is not falling waters was the cause of defeat, right. Oh, yes. I saw you said.
Like the actual cause of defeat. Yeah, no, no, the archers. If when they turn Yeah, like what caused archers
that you're right, that the court will cause them to move was another thing. Other thing that greed they wanted the the free stuff that the fleeing army was leaving behind. But that move is what caused them the battle, right? Yes. Now was the profitsystem hurt physically in this battle?
that something happened to him like his face? Yes.
Yes, actually, he did. He got hit on the face with like a rock. And then the shield was inside his his cheek and his tooth got broken, chipped panel up. And he was bleeding proposed beautiful profusely and they had to take you know how they would seal a wound back in the day, they would take a hot metal like a sword or something. Right? And they would then
they would seal the wound with the hot metal.
Imagine that, like it's painful as such as already bleeding. Then you put like burning metal on him to seal the wound. Right? And to kill any of the like bacteria and whatnot.
They have to do that to the both of them because his cheek was wouldn't stop bleeding. And if they didn't do it, he would bleed. Until like be cute. fall unconscious, right? Yes. Did he lose
any family members in this battle? Yes or no?
Yes, I think what do you think people? It depends because one of the great greatest Sahaba is died.
And I think that his family member, I don't know, okay? happens a Eben Abdulmutallab
uncle of the Prophet right? He was the Amara soul, right? He was the uncle, he was the Prophet's father's brother. And they were very close. They were close in age, this used to happen back in the day, even today, sometimes you would have like a young uncle who's close to your age. Right? But back in the day, what happened a lot. So he was not too much older than the promised land. He was, you know,
he was an uncle of the Prophet for sure. But they were very close and very tight, and Hamza really long and who was one of the best, like, supports the profit some ever had. Right? And then he was martyred in this battle hams out of the lawn.
All because all the reasons above that we were just doing Yes, no of rite.
aid in that wouldn't have happened, right? Yes, he's the army, the orders were followed, this wouldn't have happened. Right? If you know, people kept in their places, this wouldn't have happened every single step of the way. The Prophet Sallam was right. And the people, it was their fault. Do you agree with that? Yes. Like if they just followed everything he said, none of this would have happened. So does he have reason to be angry? What do you think? Yes, a lot. He has a lot of reason to be angry, right? Because they lost not because of him. But because of them. He got injured because of what these people did. Here. His uncle very close to him, got killed, martyred because of
them. Other people that he was very close with, you know, that were with him since the beginning of his of his message. were martyred like Muslim men or male, because other people didn't listen. Right. So we get all the reason to be furious. But what do you think, reading me this from this ayah? I want you to tell me, okay. And then type the answer afterwards. Was the profits on the angry and furious with the Sahaba? afterwards? Yes or no? People tell me
from Ireland for 159.
No, he was very merciful. He was not furious with them. He was actually what what's the word in that translation?
He was. He was
he was gentle. Oh, Rahim.
The Rama is there. Right? But he was gentle, very good Spondon. That's the correct answer. He was
that you were gentle with them. This is a very amazing thing.
that a person is so much hurt on every level
yet, and it's not because of him. It's other people's fault, right? Clearly.
But he is still gentle. That is probably the hardest thing to do in life.
Probably the hardest thing to do in life is to be gentle with someone who was at fault, and you got hurt because they're at fault. And you have the opportunity to be harsh, and to really be really come down on them. But in that case, if you are gentle, that is the hardest thing to do. And that is how the problem was and that's why he was the greatest boss All right, because his character was the best.
Right? That is like the defining thing about the prophets Allah. Allah spotless says, I'll read the Arabic I'll have a Rihanna. Rihanna was like to read the English if you can unmute yourself, please.
Are you with me? Rihanna?
Oh, great. All right. I'm gonna read the Arabic and then you read the English. Alright. clabby, ma Rama, Mina law healin. tala whom?
Rihanna you want to start reading please.
It is by God's grace that you were gentle with them. Alright, so suppose your proposer that I'm gonna highlight where you pause in that.
Well, the fourth one Wally will call beelen fabu mean how woolich
for if you had been harsh and hard hearted, they would surely have
deserted you. deserted means to what? Please leave right. If you have been harsh and hard hearted, they would have left you all right, but for and home was still feed left home wash, we'd room feel um
so bear with them and pray for forgiveness for them. take counsel with them in the conduct, conduct of affairs
for iva de fatawa galera de la
la how you wound Muto Keely in
Zen when you have decided on a course of action, please your place your trust in God, for God loves those who place their trust in Him. Amazing. Thank you very much. Wow, that was awesome. All right. So this ayah tells us how the prophets also reacted his response to this defeat. Okay, this is i a number and number what 159 Okay.
The prophets response to defeat was he was gentle. And it was the mercy of Allah the grace of Allah that allowed him to be gentle, okay. And that is what we should ask Allah for when we make dua to Allah subhanaw taala we should ask Allah for his for his great for his grace, allamani newcomen, folic, O Allah, I asked you for your grace, we make the art for this because it is by the mercy of Allah, the grace of Allah, that Sophia of Allah, that we're able to be the best versions of ourselves. And that is what Allah is telling the prophets Allah, and he was gentle. And that's why they listened. Had he been harsh, they will not have listened. Had he been hard hearted? Meaning he
would have kept like grudges in their in his heart, he would have reminded them hey, you know you last time What happened? Remember last time remember remember, if he was like that, they wouldn't have listened they would have left him right learn follow me and holy that's a very strong you know, statement Viola. And this they are the Sahaba right?
Well, I sing is even the best of the best, the Sahaba would not have listened and would not have stuck around if you are harsh. And if you are hard hearted, right? What do you think about the rest of us?
Even right, even worse, it will be even quicker people people will leave even quicker.
So this is the thing this is the key idea that a lot popular is trying to teach us to the example the profits is
what is it that we should do far for one home for one home? So bear with them is actually the right transition will be to forgive them right alone. We know God for one symbol alpha, but for me, you guys know that there are Yes, there are four little other, okay, forgive me for four on home, forgive them was still feel at home and pray for forgiveness for them. ask Allah to forgive them as well. Right? Look how amazing this is. Don't you know forgive this person? And then ask Allah to forgive them make make the offer them? Right? Like, wow, they have done something. And you can blame them for that. And you've been hurt by their mistake. But instead of you making Dora to hurt them,
you make the law that Allah forgives them. Wow, that is the that's just unbelievable. Right? And also take counsel with them, shall we? The home Phil? council means that you ask their opinion, just because they were wrong the first time. Right? They said oh, you know, we should not leave. We should go out of Makkah. And so you go out of Medina. They were wrong. They should have stayed in Medina, right.
But just because someone was wrong the first time doesn't mean that they're always going to be wrong and they'll never learn the lesson. Take their accounts, you have decided upon a cause of action. Place your trust in a lot don't like you know flip flop don't say yes and then no then say no and then say yes or no once you've made up your mind

You This is actually a very beautiful passage. Do you notice how many times that I've been Robin? Robin? Roberta comes in right? Our Lord our Lord. Yeah, it's a very beautiful day out at the very end. Hmm. It talks about the signs and the creation of the heavens and the earth, people, people who the way they understand who Allah is, is by looking at the creation of Allah. And when they have studied a last creation, they know for a fact that this creation of Allah cannot be just by chance. It did not come out of nowhere. Allah Subhana Allah there has to be someone who has inexhaustible power, who has been there before this world existed, this universe existed to have brought it into
existence. All right, look at the beautiful part here.
When they understand that they're like, yeah, we believe Oh, Allah phocoena either now, save us from the fire of hell, Allah, we know that this creation you made, there is a it's not just about this world, there has to be a the way it is, is telling us that it has to be a you have put us here for a purpose, you have a will, that you have put us here for and we have to execute that. And if you do it, then we have reward. And if you don't, then we have punishment. First in our governor, so save us from the torment of hellfire. This is the thing they don't just look at the stars are like, oh, cool, right? No, they understand that this whole creation actually is in existence, brought into
existence by someone who has willed it and has a will that he wants us to execute. Right? And thus the DA now check out this is the beginning of the suta and number seven, right? Last month I mentioned on Rossi hoonah filler in the people who are firmly grounded in knowledge, right? People who understand the Quran, understand the Sunnah understand what slam, they're saying, and robina robina right there making the right the people who understand Islam are not just the ones who understand it, just by studying the text, just by reading. They're actually understanding is built on
as the last part of the ISS. By looking at the creation, the universe, the cosmos, their understanding of Islam is Islam explains reality. And reality explains Islam because the reality of the world, the cosmos, it's the one Allah spotlight is the one who brought it into existence. And the message of the slam the books, the text, last month was the one who authored it. It's his speech, you see, so it's got to be the same
For both, and that is such a beautiful thing, right? That is the, that what the surah leaves us with the think about that, that true faith in Allah subhanaw. taala is finding purpose in life in Islam, and understanding that this all comes together, because it's from the same source. And that once you have understood that, that means you become a better person, you become like the prophets, Allah, who was, you know, who demonstrated all what it means to be the best of humanity. That is actually what the Quran teaches us. That's what Islam teaches us. you internalize the message of Islam, and you become certain of it by looking at the amazing world around you. And by looking at the ayat of
the Quran and understanding them and the Hadees of the problem and understanding them, once that is internalized. Now, how does that change you? You become a better person, just like the Prophet says, I love when he was faced with defeat, how did you respond? When he was faced with people who people's mistakes? Did he get angry? And lash out? No, he actually became gentle. That is the lesson for you all for us all. And that is the end of the sutra. Such a powerful surah such an amazing message. This is why you know people's lives were changed by the Quran, right? This is why you know, it changed people a transformed people. All right, hamdulillah. I want to stop here and again,
inshallah Allah next week, we have in this time, a very special special lecture from Shane bulahdelah. Smile, right? Shouldn't be last mile from where do you remember from where? South Africa?
