All the villa him in a shape on the regime smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah he was early for us Javi omala Bishop he said recently emri Hello Kata melissani Kaku Kohli, Bernard enough Antonio Hassan, Hassan Burkina hada Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Welcome to a just a day. Today we are going to be covering the seventh ages of the Quran hamdulillah that is, you know, something that we have

00:00:36--> 00:01:28

that's something that we've been able to cover together from the Rila and secured blessing of Allah that we've gotten this far. And we ask a lot to allow us to get to the end of our study in sha Allah. The seventh juice of the Quran begins with iron number 82 of Surah meyda. So it sort of 582 It ends with surah six ir 110. So it spans two Sutras, the end of the fifth Surah Surah majda and most of the sixth Surah Surah but it does not complete sort of an arm the rest of it is on the in the eighth jewels, which we will cover tomorrow in sha Allah. Let us look though, at the first IR of this beautiful Jews, Ira number 82 and this will set the table for us as we discuss and study this

00:01:28--> 00:02:06

just a last part that says I will be given a shakedown regime lethargy then shut the nurse yada with a little Latina, amanu Latina lethargy excuse me, shut the NASA tele Latina Manu yehudah Latina eyeshadow, wala Jaden Cora Bahama, Wanda Linda Dena Amanullah Xena hollow in Nana Sora, the early Gambian and I mean home PC seen our over and over and homeless that we don't I 182 of sudama ada dammit display the screen with the translation for you, you will find the bitterest in their enmity to the faithful

00:02:08--> 00:02:27

are the other Jews you will find that the bitterness in their enmity to the faithful or the Jews and the policies and the nearest in affection to them are those who say we are Christians. That is because there are priests and monks among them and because they are free from pride

00:02:29--> 00:02:40

well either semi ruma una de la la soltara or you know him a few Lumina de Marie Mara filming and Huck, when they listen to what has been sent down to the messenger, you see their eyes,

00:02:41--> 00:03:32

or tears because they because the truth they recognize, they say Our Lord, we believe so count us among those who bear witness, and why should we not believe in God, and in the truth that has come down to us, we yearn for our Lord to admit admit us among the righteous, and for their words, God will reward them with gardens through which rivers flow wherein they shall abide forever, and that is the reward of those who do good. And but those who deny the truth and deny our science will become the inmates of the fire of hell. This is the passage that introduces order begins this just as passage, as you can see, speaks about the the Christian community. Okay. It makes a comment about

00:03:32--> 00:03:54

the animosity that the historically that the polytheist and the Jewish community have had and have expressed to the to the Muslims, it makes a comment about that. It also makes a comment about the Christians. And this is not talking about the crusading Christians, you know, those were brutal, brutal.

00:03:55--> 00:04:03

People, you know, they would pillage and destroy. It's not only about the colonizers Who would think as their colonize, they're oppressed,

00:04:04--> 00:04:28

you know, subjects as subhuman. Right? It was it's not talking about those kind of Christians, it's talking about the Christians who were gentle, who is their, their spirit was gentle and their practices was of people of kindness. Right? And they are as Allah says, they are cc in our have been their priests and monks, people who would,

00:04:29--> 00:04:48

monks are those who dedicate themselves to the worship of God. priests are those who would dedicate themselves to study of the Word of God and they are free from pride. Right? That is the group of Christians that Allah sparkler mentions here and specifically those you find them close in affection to the believers.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

This is a very interesting passage for many reasons. Number one, you see here, that last part Allah is praising in the Quran, us another faith

00:05:00--> 00:05:30

Group, a faith group that is not Muslim. These are Christians by Lou in Nassau last month praises that. And this is something that we find in the Quran. The Quran, praises, praiseworthy characteristics. And here they are these Christians demonstrate praiseworthy characteristics, and for that they are praised hamdulillah. In fact, you find this in another surah of the Quran in surah. Number 57 is numbered 27.

00:05:31--> 00:06:18

Allah Martha says something very similar about the followers of Jesus, those righteous followers of Jesus, he says, We gave him Jesus the gospel and imbued the hearts of those who followed him with compassion and mercy Subhana Allah, and we did not prescribe monasticism for them. What are baniya? You know, the this was not something that Jesus taught them. But this was their own innovation by which they sought to please God. Hmm, very interesting. So this, this this passage, I remember sort of 57 i 27. And then this one here with us today surah, five I 82. Number one, it praises the Christian community for positive characteristics that you find among them. And this is something

00:06:18--> 00:06:59

that could on does, and this is something that we are to do when there is someone who has a positive characteristic or a community that has a positive characteristic, we are to praise them for those characteristics. And there's no, no, no, no need to be little or no need to downplay their, their goodness here, the foreign clearly mentioned that. So that's point number one. Point number two is that this actually was a passage that was revealed about a specific group of Christians. It's mentioned in the books of the season. So that's often the joshy I'll call the mean Allah, human and Habesha. This is a group of Christians that came from Abyssinia, modern day Ethiopia, they had come

00:06:59--> 00:07:44

to visit the prophets of Allah, because the Prophet had sent some of his followers to stay with them with Anna joshy. And he had, you know, told them to seek refuge there with this just Christian King, okay, and seek refuge there against the persecution of the people of Makkah, as they are staying there. They're telling the people of MK, excuse me, the people of Abyssinia about Islam. In fact, the joshy himself becomes Muslim. So these people are now coming to meet the Prophet, son, they're Christians, but they've seen Muslims and they want they're interested in knowing what's up. And when they reach. The prophet SAW them in Medina, the prophet some recited to them surah Thea scene for

00:07:44--> 00:08:26

Baca assalamu. So they started crying, and they accepted Islam. And they said, this is so similar to what the message of this Quran is so similar to what Jesus brought, and that was something that move them. And this is what's mentioned in this passage, iron number 83 hear that when they heard and they listen to what has been sent down to the messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears, right? So point number two, this is a historical group, who came to learn about this, and from the process of them were Christians, and they accepted this them in a very beautiful way. And this very beautiful thing is the point number three is about the, you know, the experience of faith,

00:08:27--> 00:08:58

experiencing faith, you know, in a way, that is, you know, it's there's no words to describe it really, the only thing, the only emotion that it evokes is the emotion of such overwhelming joy and happiness, that tears start to flow from a person's eyes. This is a beautiful experience, a really humbling, a really cleansing experience. And this is something you find.

00:09:00--> 00:09:45

The prophet SAW them praising about righteous believers, that the person who is crying out of fear of God, or the love of God, out of conviction of God, that is a person who has as a as a beautiful action to do. And here we see this again, about these people as well, that they're, they recognize the truth, and they are overwhelmed by it, and they're crying. And number four here is that they accept that, like, Look, there's no reason for us not to accept this truth. So they accepted right away and became Muslims. And what's interesting is the Quran says about them, that for their words, God will reward them with gardens through which rivers flow, right. They didn't even have to start

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

working and doing actions of Islam. Just the sincerity of their words was so powerful that Allah Subhana Allah, you know, affirmed their reward and wrote them among the righteous. I mean, how amazing is that? This

00:10:00--> 00:10:30

is a very unique instance the person usually say, Jen, you know, the 11th Avenue Amina saw he had his good deeds and so he man faith and then good deeds. But in the case of these people, it didn't even need the good deeds because their Eman and sincerity was so strong, it was like a guarantee almost that they will go do they will go and go do good deeds afterwards. So that was something that's very, very remarkable how Allah Allah mentions them in this passage. Okay.

00:10:31--> 00:10:52

One of the things that if you remember surah Maya we spoke about, it's the concept of fulfilling our commitments, our contract with the people and with loss plans are a part of our contract with Allah subhanaw taala is we are faithful people to him we are devoted to him and part of that as as part as believers is we don't make things

00:10:53--> 00:11:35

the things that are halal we don't make them haram and vice versa we don't make things that are haram or halal. It says a a poor in practice make something haram into halal is really bad. Okay, but making something halal into haram right? Something that's permissible restricting it is also very bad. Okay. And the answer is this very clearly led to hardly muya you alladhina amanu. Again, this is an address to the believers. And this is where the last one the ones that stuff. Focus with our minds. Listen with our minds and our hearts. all believers like to have remote givati ma hula hula calm, do not forbid the wholesome good things which God has made awful to you.

00:11:37--> 00:12:25

Well, after I do, do not transgress in Allah Allah you humble Mata Deen because God does not love those who transgressed this could be to not transgress could be a emphasis to the previous if, excuse me to the previous sentence, you making something impermissible is transgressing the bounds. You see, it could also just be generic what are the other two don't transgress but it seems like you know it seems like this will do not transgress is an emphasis of the previous command, which is you making something that is wholesome and good that Allah has made halal into Hara is you crossing the lines okay. In fact, what you should do as well kurumi morozova kumala halal antiva eat the lawful

00:12:25--> 00:13:01

and wholesome things that Allah has given you. And fear God in whom you believe but of Allah What up law unto Me, me known okay. The surah then moves on to speak about a very important iron number 90 a very important ruling about intoxicants. Yeah you will Medina Avenue as you notice again begins with Yeah, you have Lavina I know all you who believe in normal harm rule may see rule will unsolvable well, Islam already so many families shavon fudge anywhoo hula Allah come to flew home all believers.

00:13:02--> 00:13:24

Alhambra which is intoxicants, it's it's an alcohol, but anything that is in the same category as alcohol something that intoxicated your mind, while it may see through my sir is gambling. It is something any instrument of gambling. Okay, well unsolvable unsolved here. It translates as

00:13:25--> 00:13:51

dedication of stones, I don't even know what he's meaning by that, in the books of the series, sorry, in the books have to see unsolved is described as a fan, the idols idols that a person would worship obviously, but even just the concept of having idols and sculpture sculpted idols, that itself that was as lamb and as lamb is dividing arrows.

00:13:52--> 00:13:54

A way to

00:13:57--> 00:14:33

arrows that would be used to attain some sort of divinity. What's the closest and parallel to this today? Because we don't use divining arrows. astrology is a close parallel to Islam today. astrology, believing how the movement of stars somehow affects our life, which is completely ridiculous. And it completely has no basis in in Islam or in reality, right? It has no logical correlation. And islamically it's completely abhorrent because you're giving the power that is a loss to some creation of a lost part of the stars.

00:14:35--> 00:14:41

So you could say here as lamb is referring to astrology and believing in these kinds of

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

these kinds of thoughts, all of these things, okay. Alcohol, gambling, idols, astrology. These are villages so Menominee shape on abominations devised by Satan and it's something filthy. It's filth.

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

It's from the work of the devil, Minamoto shavon fudge, then he boohoo, completely stay away from it, it says avoid them because avoid them in English seems like you know, if you can avoid it, it's not an accurate translation, unfortunately, and I'm choosing to comment on our translation so that you can also sometimes maybe see that transitions are not accurate. It's kind of a, it's from the word jump, it's just like be on the side of something. If I just any boohoo completely be on the side of it, he completely stay away from it, La La come to flee home, so that you may prosper. This is a very important idea. These are things that we consider to be

00:15:39--> 00:16:28

rich soon, they are filth, either physically, or spiritually, or both. And these things are from the work of the devil. Okay, think about it. Alcohol takes away our intelligence, or some news, our intelligence makes us say things or do things that are completely ridiculous drunken stupors are just, you know, that's exactly what they are. Right? It makes a human being into a shell of what they should be that Allah has honored, the human being alcohol is dishonouring them maicer gambling, what does gambling do, it's a zero sum game, one person is gonna win and one person is gonna lose. And gambling has an addictive quality, when you get addicted to it, you lose track of it, double or

00:16:28--> 00:17:14

nothing, triple or nothing. And next thing you know, you have lost everything on a whim. A is a very dangerous, very, very dangerous thing. And even without the addictive, you just even ignore the addictive nature, the fact that is zero sum, right? That is a problematic aspect. In this dynamic transactions. When you are doing business, the business should be mutually beneficial, both parties can benefit from it, and enjoy, it's good. But if the part of the benefit is exclusive to one, one has to wait and one has to lose. That's a problematic transaction. And this is part of that problem. Right? It's if mean, I'm going to shape on, it's from the work of the devil, it creates animosity. I

00:17:14--> 00:17:17

go the ISS UT, the union, Chicano nuclear binaca.

00:17:19--> 00:18:14

Satan says seeks to sow enmity and hatred among you by means of wine and gambling. That's what it does. idols are our you know, an abomination are filled, because these are lifeless things that people assume or have assumed and do assume, as somehow having powers, okay? And that's a very, very terrible thing. And the same thing about the stars and astrology and whatnot, ascribing powers to them, or fortune to them and luck, that is completely as complete bogus number one. And number two, it's you're giving, you're putting basically like, you're you're letting something control you and it's a very bad thing. That is mean, I'm Alicia on a work of the devil as well. Okay, so this is

00:18:14--> 00:18:56

what that mentions, gentlemen, to whom will you not stop me. And as I was revealed the Sahaba very, very quickly abandoned alcohol, they would, they threw away all the alcohol they had, and completely, it was like an overnight abolition. And he compared that to the abolitionist movement that took place of alcohol in the 19, the mid mid 20th century in America, and people were bootlegging and doing all sorts of random things. But in Islam, because the foundation of a man was built, immediately, they were able to give up alcohol, even though they were just as addicted to it as a culture as any culture in the world. But because the foundation was built, that's how they gave

00:18:56--> 00:19:01

it up. And this is the key lesson here for us. Okay. There's a few things here also.

00:19:03--> 00:19:30

What's your law? How well do Rasulullah obey God and obey the messenger and be ever on your guard against evil? If you turn away, then only know that know that the RMS is his duty is only to deliver the message? Clearly, it also mentions a little bit or gives a hint about people who are struggling with addiction. Those who believe and do good deeds will now be blamed for what they may have been what they may have consumed in the past, as long as they fear God, and believe

00:19:31--> 00:19:42

in Him and do good works, so long as they fear God and believe in him, so long as if your God and do good deeds, you see how that expression repeats illa matakohe amanu

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

Aminu matakohe was and it seems like the is hinting at people are struggling giving up the addiction of alcohol. If they give it up and they struggle through it. They will not be blamed the sin will be wiped away.

00:20:00--> 00:20:29

Send will be wiped away because Allah loves those who do good law is below your head will mercy Nene is ready to accept the action of the good doers and this is a lesson for us. Whatever addiction a person might be in, if they're able to work towards breaking it, a bad addiction, evil addiction. A law sponsor will wipe the slate clean completely. And he is he understands that we're struggling to try to break through and this is important. This is is one of those I'm number 93 that speaks about that.

00:20:31--> 00:20:41

Some other important rulings. This one is an interesting one about hunting during a harem. While we're in a hurry, I'm going to Hajj and Umrah hunting was not allowed. This was an interesting thing.

00:20:44--> 00:21:31

Interesting ruling. It doesn't apply to us today because nobody really hunts they just go and buy fast food. But this was a problem for the Sahaba because they would hunt on their journey and this was a tough thing. But they were patient with that test. And this was again a test to see Do you you know last month I was watching you and the opportunity to sneak in a quick hunt is there but you know would you be on your guard? That is something that last month I tested for them I number 96 speaks about or Hindi locum sidle body. watamu mata Allah Melissa Yara, the hunt and eat fish of the sea is lawful for for you. Okay, so an exception to the rule was you can hunt if you're on, on on a

00:21:31--> 00:22:08

boat because you could starve to death, right? You can run out of supplies you can if you are traveling online, you can stop somewhere and you can buy a you can trade you can go to like an oasis, you can plan your trip accordingly. If you're on the if you're on the open waters, you might starve to death if you're not allowed to hunt, and you've run out of food. So that was given a permission that was made permissible. I number 96. Also, what's interesting is I number 96 weeks about generally seafood, seafood is all holiday all seafood is how long and you can consume it, you know, there are some some of the scholars of the Hanafi position they consider some seafood to be

00:22:08--> 00:22:22

not recommended. But everybody accepts it to be permissible, you know, not sinful in eating anything of that comes from the sea. So hamdulillah that is a good thing. If you're like if you like seafood, this idea is now your your best friend.

00:22:23--> 00:23:07

All right. It speaks about the the when it comes to fulfilling our commitments, yes, our commitments to Allah subhanaw taala. One of the things is there's good culture, and there's bad culture, there's good culture, and there's cultural baggage that people bring in last month la highlights that I number 97 God has made the Kava the sacred house, a means of support, as well as the sacred month and the sacrificial animals for their gardens. That is so that you may know that God has knowledge of whatever is in the heavens and on the earth. And he is fully aware of all things I number 97. This is talking about how the harem is a sanctuary is something that even the pagans acknowledged.

00:23:07--> 00:23:41

Yes. And whatever it could have that was brought into Islam is good culture because that was a culture of Ibrahima. Listen up the rituals of hygiene and rather than the problem is that it was not the problem didn't start them. He purified them he removed the the the the false practices and took it back to the practice of Ibrahim alayhis salam. So that's good culture, right, and also mentions that the sanctity of the Kava in that aspect, then then the example of the bad culture is our number 103 magic, I love him. But he wrote in Walla

00:23:42--> 00:24:27

Walla, we'll see that in voila, ham. La Sparta has not ordained any sanctity to these animals. But here are Sahiba or sila ham. What are these animals, different different superstitions that the pagans would attach to animals? Or here's an animal? No, they they, they will cut off his ear and then say, Okay, now it's haram to write this animal and it becomes sanctified. This kind of random ideological beliefs that they would have. That was something that has no bearing on reality, it has no sanctity. That's the cultural baggage that we're supposed to shed stuff that does not have anything to do with the text with the Scripture. That is something we leave behind because that is

00:24:27--> 00:24:53

an invention. And it's false, particularly when I'm speaking about theology here. Okay, what Allah says in this ayah I wonder in for why the appeal Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah under the law, when it is said to them come to what God has sent down and to the messenger, they replied, The fate that we have inherited from our fathers is sufficient for us. You know, what's wrong with us is good. We go to a grave when we do, you know, make the offer on the game. This is good, right? That's a good man, righteous man.

00:24:55--> 00:25:00

Our ocana whom Allah Allah wanna show you, even though their forefathers nothing

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

And we're not guided, right? This is an example of, you know, cultural practices that are evil that would seep into the religion. And the Quran makes a distinction. There's cultural practices of the Arabs that became part of the religion, as I mentioned to you about Hajj. Right. But their source was from Ibrahim alayhis salam and the Prophet salam, you know, accepted that and the last one that allowed that, and then there were other practices of the of the Arabs that were completely out of bounds, complete falsehoods and inventions against Allah Subhana Allah, and they were rightfully highlighted here to make the point to make the point to us clear that our commitment to Allah is we

00:25:46--> 00:26:19

commit to the faith and we bring the good aspects of our culture to the faith, but we leave cultural baggage aside and take the Quran and Sunnah as they are pure and wholesome. Okay. The next few is again as you notice a lot of yeah you will Latina Avenue, you will Latina Avenue, they're speaking a lot about, you know, about certain rulings. This is a ruling about what happens to a person the time of death. And you know, there's a lot of fit that's involved here about that, but then we move on

00:26:20--> 00:26:40

to the concluding part of this surah which is iron number 109. Yo my admirer, LaHood Russa for Yahoo lumada would give it to a scene from the day of judgment and what a scene this is, this is and it will actually circle back to one of the important characters in this surah which is SRS and I misspoke quite at length about

00:26:41--> 00:27:01

Lisa lesson yesterday about how he was the how the surah makes the case of him not being God, right. And him being dependent on on Allah and being dependent upon food for to sustain himself. He's not God in any way. Okay, he's a human being and a great prophet.

00:27:03--> 00:27:13

But today, the scene shifts to the Day of Judgment, the day when God assembles the messengers and asks them I'm gonna actually read this fully. without some commentary. I'm going to comment at the very end.

00:27:14--> 00:27:30

When God assembles the messengers and ask them what was the response you receive from the people? All they said, they will reply, we have no knowledge of it, you alone know what is hidden. It's called Allahu Allah Subhan Allah The mF co near Metallica.

00:27:31--> 00:27:36

Then God will say Jesus, son of Mary, remember my favorite to you and your mother?

00:27:39--> 00:28:22

How I strengthened you with the Holy Spirit to call him on NASA filma de Vaca Hola. So you could speak to people in childhood and maturity, where I learned to allow him to call Kitab al hikmah tah tah tah engine and how it taught you the book and wisdom, the Torah and the Gospel, and how by my leave you fashioned from clay, the shape of a bird and blue upon it. And so that by my leave, it became a bird and you heal the blind in leopard by my permission and when you brought forth the dead by my permission and how I prevented the children of Israel from harming you when you came to them with clear signs when those of them who denied the truth set in Heather Alessi Hello movie this is

sheer magic. What is our hi to El Hawa Dina and Amina, we will be Rosalie

00:28:27--> 00:28:56

remember the time when I inspired the disciples to believe in me? And in my messenger they replied, amen. We believe what was had to be anonymous, the moon and berettas that we have submitted. It's called How are you and I are a seminarian. When the disciples said, Oh Jesus, son of Mary, can your Lord send down to us from heaven? A table spread with food? Hell yes totally Aurora buka Yun asila la Namah tamina sama.

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

out to anyone else in the world.

00:30:03--> 00:30:06

This was the last few days of Risa.

00:30:08--> 00:30:54

But you notice, I lost my last book. Firstly, he started. The scene is in the day of judgment and his father went on this tangent. Remember when this happened? Remember this happened in the world. Remember when the disciples believe Miranda Miranda said this despite their belief, remember this oh Isa. Now Allah says it's called Allahu Isa, when God says Jesus and Mary, and Dakota, Linda Tuffy Looney, Romeo Ilaha and even lunella did you say to the people take me and my mother as to date is besides God, this idea, by the way of of Mary being part of the Trinity is actually something that predates the Pauline theology, and even the Hail Mary right, that that Hail Mary, prayer, is you

00:30:54--> 00:31:10

praying to Mary? Yes, train to medium Okay. Have you said and by the way, the current form of the Trinity was agreed upon much in nature. So, this is perhaps in reference to earlier Christian theology.

00:31:11--> 00:31:20

Did you under quoted in acid feelunique omya eloheinu mindu. Nina, did you say to the people take me and my mother as two deities besides God?

00:31:21--> 00:32:08

Allah Subhana Allah Maya Cooney and akula Melissa de bihac, He will answer Glory be to You. How could I ever say that to which I have no right? How could I ever say that? If I had asked if I had ever said so. You would surely have known it. You know what is in my mind while I do not know anything that is within yours? In Naga Anta alemu you are alone The Knower of the unseen things. Multiple Tula home Illa America Navy, I only told I told them only what you commanded me to say, which is an arrow de la hora de la Baku, worship God, My Lord, and your Lord, I was a witness to what they did as long as I remained among them. And when you took my soul for lamotta phytanic

00:32:08--> 00:32:51

Quinta, anta rocky barely him, you were the watcher over them, and you are the witness of all things into our living room for no money. But if you punish them, then they they are surely Your servants. It's your right. well endowed Villa home for inaka ontologies will Hakeem and if you forgive them, surely you are mighty and wise. All Allah who had a Yeoman fall saw the cleaner sindaco, whom God will say this is the day when the truthful will benefit from their truthfulness. They shall forever dwell in the gardens through which the rivers flow to probably Allahu Idaho model do I know who God is pleased with them, and they with him, that he can fossil of him, and that is the supreme triumph,

00:32:51--> 00:33:36

and indeed, the lahemaa, Monaco's tomato or the Amalfi hin, the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and everything in between them belongs to God alone, nobody else lillahi this laggy coming before muku sumati in the grammar makes it exclusive only to Allah is the kingdom of the heavens in the earth and nobody else well who Allah coalition Kadir, and he has power over all things. This is the passage at the very end, a very beautiful passage that has many, many incredible, you know, lessons, but I'll mention to you, quickly two of them. Number one, he certainly said, right, is interrogated by Allah sponza on the Day of Judgment, like all the other prophets, as you notice an

00:33:36--> 00:34:04

eye on number 109. When God assembles the messengers and asked them, hmm, the messengers are going to be asked, as we'll see in Surah, number seven, what are off, but here you see that in an example, how Allah will ask the prophets, did you say this? Of course, he knows what they said and what they didn't say. But this is the fulfillment of justice. This is for the record, this is for everybody to see, on the day of judgment.

00:34:05--> 00:34:45

If the prophets are interrogated, they're interrogated, because their job was to convey the message. If they didn't convey the message, the people who were the recipients of the message can't be held responsible. Okay, so last month, I was first verifying. Did you convey the message correctly? Yes. Okay. Then you turn to the people. And then see how many of you actually believed and lived up to that message? So that's point number one. Point number two is if the messengers are interrogated. We think about that. What about the rest of us, all of us also are going to be questioned on the Day of Judgment. What we pray to Allah for is our questioning is not an interrogation. We question we pray

00:34:45--> 00:34:57

that the last part that makes our questioning quick and short and sweet, and lets us go and overlooks our mistakes, the many, many mistakes that we've made. That's what we pray for.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

Number three, here is

00:35:00--> 00:35:32

So this salam, beseeching Allah, right, I said two things, maybe I'll add a third one, the last one that beseeching Allah that I, you know, it's your right to do what you want with them. And that shows you He is a prophet of Allah, He is not the one granting salvation to anybody, to anybody. Okay? That is Isa Salaam. There's a nice parallel here. If you look at the beginning of the surah, and the end of the surah, we also need to try to do that, you know, most of the times there, if you look at the beginning of the surah here

00:35:34--> 00:36:20

surah number five, what you will notice is the very beginning of last month, I mentioned fulfill your obligations, right? That's the idea of truthfulness, right? You're truthful and you fulfill your obligations. And here at the very end, the day when the truthful will benefit from their truthfulness. If you were if you capture commitment to capture promises, you capture word to Allah and the people that on that day, that truthfulness will come back and benefit you. And that will benefit you in the way of gardens through which rivers flow and eternal pleasure through Allah being pleased with us. radi Allahu Allah, that's the ultimate pleasure what I'll do and who and when they

00:36:20--> 00:36:20

are with him.

00:36:22--> 00:36:50

That is the supreme Trine Veliko will radical fossil of him so that is Surah number five, so Rama very beautiful surah as you notice the NEMA that came from this IR right Angela Raina ma tamina sama tribals spread of food. Okay. Next up for us is pseudo anom pseudo Ana ROM is a an A makansutra. Okay, now all the sewers before excluding sort of

00:36:51--> 00:37:27

Surah Baqarah. Number two, I am Ron number three, this is number four, my the number five were all revealed when the Prophet Islam was in Medina. Okay, this is a sewer that was revealed in the process of them was still in Makkah. Now why is the difference? What's the significance there? The significance is the audience is different. The audience in Medina includes believing, you know, Sahabi, right, people who are Sahaba, who are believers, it includes hypocrites, people who are pretending to be Muslims. It includes the Jewish community, who are, you know, also in the audience, it's not like they are just like, okay, we have nothing to do with him. We're on our own, and he's

00:37:27--> 00:38:10

on his own. Now, they're also in the audience because they're listening. And they're commenting, and they're, you know, plotting and planning accordingly. And the Christians are in the audience. a whole host of people are in the audience and you see the surah the sutras, addressing each and every one of these audiences, you know, according to the time and place in Makkah, there is only one primary audience, which is the home tribe of the profs alum Quraysh. They are the primary audience of course, the Sahaba. And the Muslims of MK are also in the audience. They're also from college, right? But their primary audience is those people, the polytheists. And it is a way to give them

00:38:10--> 00:38:54

evidence and assurances to believe in Allah alone, and to leave that idolatry to believe in. Number one, worshiping Allah alone, three major points you will see mentioned in makansutra, generally, but here in Surah, anon specifically, worship of Allah alone, don't worship other idols or deities. Don't ascribe divinity to anything but Allah subhanaw taala. Okay, that's number one. Number two, the concept of Revelation and messengers, the mccanns rejected this idea that like, what is this? You know, how come he is a man and he's walking around? And he thinks he's a prophet? Strange, right? He has to be a superman for him to be a prophet. Do that for them was a like almost like a

00:38:55--> 00:39:12

mental block. So the Quran addresses this a lot, Revelation, and messengers, what is the concept of messengers? And what's the idea behind revelation? The third thing that's very heavily focused is resurrection, being brought back to life again, and being held accountable.

00:39:13--> 00:39:29

You will notice that like the Jewish believe in that the Christians who believe in that, for example, but the pagans did not believe in that the Reishi McCann's did not believe in this. So the sutras that are used in Makkah, heavily focused on this topic as well but you will be brought back to life and you will be

00:39:31--> 00:39:59

held accountable. The surah begins by saying Alhamdulillah Hilah the Holocaust sumati will Allah Allah Almighty when nor toma de la cafaro Bureau Bohemia de Lune Praise be to God who has created the heavens and the earth and brought into being darkness and light, yet those who deny the truth set up equals to the Lord. No one has is able to do that no one can know none of these idols no human being

00:40:00--> 00:40:31

Create yet people set partners are equals with Allah subhanaw taala How can anyone be equal to him? Okay? The concept of creation and resurrection they're very closely related is mentioned who would love you Hi love are coming clean He has created created you out of clay. VO McCullough Angela then decreed a term for you. But a gentleman someone I know who and a term known only for him to man tom tom Tarun that yet you are in doubt,

00:40:32--> 00:41:05

this is referring to our creation. And now, our original creation min Thien, from clay is actually referring to the creation of Adam, because it's the Quran mentions in other places, as human beings recreated min max in depth from a fluid water that's a reference to sperm. Yes. How, you know, the sperm is, you know, fluidly moving. That's a reference to that. So we're created from that process, of course, but our father, right, the one that who we take our, you know, human form from

00:41:06--> 00:41:57

the original source of our DNA was Muntean from clay. So panela. So that's the creation, what's the resurrection? The resurrection is acaba agilan. We're gonna live for a certain bit of time, until a genuine Muslim, the time of death. And this is an important thing, the Quran mentions creation and resurrection together a lot to show that the creation the purpose of it is not to live in proper, you know, perpetuity, and yes, always, it's there and never declines. The idea behind the creation is it has, you know, the stage of weakness and attains strength and, you know, completes its, its, you know, maximizes it's a, it's a, it's a being, and then it declines, and then it dies. Okay, that

00:41:57--> 00:42:47

cycle of life is observed everywhere. And that is a sign that this world is finite, it's going to end and there's going to be a time where we will be brought back to life. So, this is a very important part, the people of Bangladesh have had a very bad attitude towards towards the Quran, the pagans of Makkah. Every time a sign comes to them from their Lord, they turn away from it. Okay. And what would they say they would, you know, they would, they wouldn't you know, they wouldn't mock and they will make fun just like mess it just like the people before okay. They have rejected the truth whenever it came to them, get more news will come to them concerning about what have been mocking.

00:42:47--> 00:42:50

They will say for example, Lola Lau

00:42:51--> 00:42:55

alayka keytab aunty pathos in Kalamazoo will be ID him.

00:42:59--> 00:43:26

L'Aquila, la Cala Lena cafaro, hatha Illa Sahara mubin. But even if we had sent down to you a book written on parchment, a physical miracle, it's descending from the sky, right? And it's there and they will touch it with their own hands. They will still denied like, no, this is say hello movie. This is really very, very awesome. You know, witchcraft.

00:43:27--> 00:44:08

This is sorcery of the highest order, okay? makalu Lola, Allah Allah Hema, say why was an angel not been sent to him? Why is he a man claiming to be a prophet receiving revelation from God? Okay? Allah says Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, this is a very important thing. If you send down an angel, the matter will be settled, and then they will not be granted any respect. What does this mean? That means if an angel was to come down, angels are coming down to give you that the angels not coming down and say, Hey, I'm an angel. believe in Allah. Okay? The angels coming down with the punishment of God. That's what the law sponsor says, When angels would come down like this in this kind of a

00:44:08--> 00:44:28

manner, they will come down with destruction. So what are you asking for? Exactly. And this attitude of constantly seeking a free physical miracle is actually a telltale sign of disbelief. They won't believe in anything, unless it is like a supernatural event.

00:44:29--> 00:44:43

And that is the crux of the problem. The problem isn't how come is a man? How come there is no angel? Right? The crux of the problem is you don't want to believe because you don't want to change. You want to enjoy life. That's the real thing.

00:44:44--> 00:44:59

The messengers have been mocked before you. But those who scoffed were overtaken by the very thing this coughed up what about this to zero, so the mean public, this is the way of people you know, throughout time, they would mock the messengers at number 10

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

All right. And Allah says, look at the world travel around the land and see how people have met the end. Right number 12 says

00:45:13--> 00:45:29

cateva Alana see her Rama Despite all these term warnings, Allah says he has taken it upon himself to be merciful. He has mandated on himself. Mercy allows pantalla despite the stern warnings, this is a very stern very tough

00:45:30--> 00:45:48

cookie. Bear in mind also that this surah was one of the last jurors revealed before the Prophet migrated from Mecca to Medina. So it's been more like a decade plus of the Prophet preaching to them and inviting them. And more than that 40 years of the Prophet before that, exemplifying the most perfect character.

00:45:49--> 00:45:50

And these people knew him.

00:45:52--> 00:46:09

like nobody else knew him because he grew up around them, right. So this tough stern language is now at the very end of the line, not in the very beginning of the revelation. Okay? But still Allah mentions that he is has mandated upon himself

00:46:11--> 00:46:57

to be merciful, Okay, last month, Allah is unlike his creation. Okay, shall I take as my protector, someone other than God, Creator of the heavens and the earth? who feeds all and is fed by none? This is the key difference. He is the one for Who are you to follow Tom, he isn't the one he is sufficient. He is self sustaining. He is independent, we are dependent. We are not self sufficient. We need the oxygen that we breathe, we need everything. We're dependent on every little thing around us. We need it to survive. And the amount of things have to go right for us to be comfortable or even more. Yes. So this is the idea. What will you tell me? Well, that's why we're dependent beings

00:46:57--> 00:47:02

as far as a servant, and that's why he is the Lord of all the servants. Here.

00:47:04--> 00:47:05

I am number

00:47:06--> 00:47:11

27 minutes skip a little bit to number 27. That speaks about

00:47:25--> 00:47:39

27 speaks about seniors on the Day of Judgment, right? It shifts the narrative a little bit to the scenes from the day of January one sec them you want to make sure I didn't skip something here.

00:47:47--> 00:47:59

Ah, yes. Okay, actually, before I number 27 let's actually look at this ayah number 25 I knew I was missing something here. Um, the lie, didn't want to miss that. The Qureshi people are also living like a bit of a paradoxical

00:48:00--> 00:48:19

you know, contradictory lifestyle. On the public front, they were like, hey, how can you be a messenger? What's up with him? Right, but privately, I mean, who is the mirror like, they will listen to what the prophet son had to say. They would very carefully observe the prophet in his private life. They would even

00:48:20--> 00:48:58

you know, stand outside his house at night and listen to the Prophet recite the Quran at night. Okay, because they were fascinated by it. They were totally, you know, like, completely blown away by it. But Allah says despite their attraction to the mess that the the, the mesmerizing nature of the Quran, the message never seeped their hearts never entered their hearts. Why would Allah Allah kulu him Akin? you pleased veils over their hearts, and deafness in their ears, which prevent them from understanding what you say. So hello. And they reached the point that even if they saw all the signs that would not believe.

00:49:00--> 00:49:42

And when those who do have the truth come to dispute with you, they will say in other Illa South literally, this is just ancient fables. This is just something you made up. These are stories of the past. It's got nothing to do with reality. But very interestingly, in their private lives, they will be very much attuned to what the client is saying. The Quran shifts the scene, the day of judgment, what's going to happen on the Day of Judgment, a scene from that, if you could only see when they are set when they are set before the fire. They're standing and about to enter the firehouse what a traumatic situation. They will say, Yeah, laitanan radula Luca zerby, IRT rabina. If only we could

00:49:42--> 00:49:59

be sent back. If only we got one more chance. And then we will not deny the signs of our Lord and we would be of the believers. Too late well, but Allahu maganda you for them and the truth they used to hide will become all too clear to them. Look at that. They knew

00:50:00--> 00:50:00

At

00:50:01--> 00:50:34

Makana yufuin they used to hide it. They knew there is something about this man. They knew what he's saying makes sense. They knew he is the truthful one assaulted, I mean, the trustworthy. But there were other ulterior motives that stopped them from believing, and that what I would do lorado the man who and who I know Kathy Boone, you know, the same thing would repeat if they were sent back, they would return to what they had been forbidden to, or what they were forbidden from, they will return back to the old lifestyles, for indeed they are liars.

00:50:35--> 00:50:36

They say

00:50:37--> 00:51:17

they is nothing beyond our life in this world. We shall not be raised up again from the dead. Remember that idea of resurrection night? messenger ship, right? It's worshipping Allah, believing in the messengers and Revelation, and then resurrection, here comes resurrection, okay, says nothing in this life. We're going to live and die. And that's it. While Tara is working for him if he could only see the moment when they're standing before the Lord resurrected, resurrected brought back to life again, por la la Sahaja. He will ask them is this second life not the truth? This is obviously, you know, insult to injury on Ebola where I've been at, they will say yes, by our Lord. But at that

00:51:17--> 00:51:43

time believing in it is too, too late. Because you're not it's not belief anymore. Now you see it with your own eyes, you're living it too late. Belief is you accept it based on evidences, without having seen it. That's what it is. We don't see a lot, but we have so much evidence of him. We believe in Him as our Lord. But if you see a lot and then you're like, yeah, I see him Yep, he's definitely there. It's not human. That's not faith.

00:51:45--> 00:52:03

He will say then, taste the punishment that comes from having refused to acknowledge the truth. So part of what a What a terrible, terrible situation there. This is what Allah describes. of them. The Prophet son did not enjoy them.

00:52:05--> 00:52:39

You know, it'd be like them being this way the person wanted them to believe and to become better and to you know, like really accept this faith will occur Nanaimo canal mo in a hula zunow Galleria pulumi know that what they say grieves you It hurt the prof some very deeply when they will say things about him that were wrong, that were fallacious that were things that before they used to love him and now they're calling him a liar. a madman is sourcer this and that, right? The problem it really deeply hurt him.

00:52:40--> 00:52:54

Well for him, No, now you can be Monica. It is not you that the wrong doors are rejecting. Rather, it is the signs of God that did reject this is very interesting. If you see people hating you because of your Islam, because you're wearing hijab, right?

00:52:58--> 00:53:39

hijab all sudden, you'll be totally fine. It's actually not you. It's what you represent. It's the faith that you are espousing. For in America, the Monica Joaquin Valley, Mina Be it like, Eh, I don't. This is what the prophet felt. This is what we feel to. Right. And the last one that says this is, you know, he's consoling the messengers also live in this way. And he's consoling us by extension as well. Okay. Look at this. When was the bathroom in public eye number 34. Other messengers have been denied before you and they border rejection and persecution steadfastly until our help came to them? Right? They were patient messengers before they waited. They were calm

00:53:39--> 00:53:59

collected until Allah's help came. While I'm Obaidullah Lickety Mattila there is no one who can change the words of God meaning the same thing will happen again. You will also be held to a profit system like this is a muck and if the problem doesn't know what's going to happen in Medina right isn't always gonna fight battles and win battles. But last one of those telling him

00:54:00--> 00:54:42

people before you messengers before you were mocked, they were hurt and they remain patient and Allah help them and Allah's words don't change so Allah will do this to you as well. Oh, Prophet Salaam wa geochemist. mousseline for us as well. Right? We will, as long as we're patient, we are steadfast. We you know, and trust in Allah. Allah is help will come. The words of Allah don't change while I'm over dinner. dickory Mattila no one will change the words of God. So this is that now the Quran turns and answers the question about miracles like hey, how can we use the man? How can we need to see something supernatural meaning to see something like, like a supernatural thing? You

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

know, like, someone throw a pillow from me from the sky? And I'm like, Oh, yeah, there's God. Not right. something completely out of the world for me to believe that Allah Allah Allah, Allah, Allah he met up behind number 37. Why has no sign been sent down to him from his Lord, all in the love of God Iran, Allah, you

00:55:00--> 00:55:29

Zilla I say God alone has the power to send down a sign. Of course he can send on a sign. He can send on something supernatural if he wanted to. Well, I can occur on axon Nyala moon, but most do not understand. But here is the real sign or ma'am in that button. There is not an animal that moves about on the earth. Well, Otto Ed and Louisa nahi, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, Illa, kumamon, and Falcon, but they are creatures like you, not a great transition in that moment.

00:55:31--> 00:55:33

They are communities like you,

00:55:35--> 00:56:22

that are the diversity of a loss creation. If you were to study it, if you watch like blue planet or something, your mind will be boggled by the incredible creation of Allah and how they live, and how they survive. And how their communities how they function together. It is absolutely like, incredible. Just study how the birds migrate. Right? Like Subhan Allah, that mafraq Nikita women shave we have left out nothing in the book, meaning Allah spotters, take care of everything. And then to your Lord, they shall be gathered. This is such a beautiful reminder about last month Allah He says, if you want to see a miracle, look at Allah's creation all around you and you will see the

00:56:22--> 00:56:50

signs of Allah everywhere. But you have to be looking for Allah to see them as signs of Allah. If you don't want to be looking for Allah, you're happy with your life, you're like, Hey, you know, this life is good enough for me. And then all of that is just, you know, background noise and nothing more. And then even a supernatural miracle will not change anything for you. Because you will say you will try to explain it away some way. And that's what the Quran is saying. The people are mcca you would explain away a miracle or many miracles, the process we showed you.

00:56:53--> 00:57:17

But the ones who are looking for the truth all over the world, or at all times would arrive at it actually by looking at the creation of a lost part because that's the ultimate sign of the greatness of Allah Spano. Donna, I had number 42 and number 42 says what are my main publika for HANA? humblebee illa. Allah home

00:57:18--> 00:57:57

tests and trials from Allah, Allah we have him reminding people of who he is, right? Like His power, His Majesty, and, you know their place as well. They are subservient to him. They look at us right now with COVID We're like, we're helpless, like we're helpless. This is how less populous reminds us he sends these reminders to us, just to remind us that we are dependent beings on him. Hey, and this is one of those ayat that speaks about that. I number 42 Okay.

00:58:01--> 00:58:46

I am number 50. The Prophet cillum is described again the idea of what a messenger is Allah akula come in the hawza in law he Allah Allah movie say I do not I do not say to you that I possess the treasures of God. What a hula Kamini Malak, Allah Allah motivate, nor do I know the uncIe wala formula come in Nima like nor do I say that to you that I'm an angel. In Peru in Lima, you ha ha I follow only that which is revealed to me. Again, the concept of what is a messenger last month was explaining that he's a human being, he does not know the unseen, he is not an angel. He does not possess supernatural powers. He cannot just like, you know, maybe wave a magic wand and destroy you

00:58:46--> 00:59:25

know, he's a human being who follows what's been revealed to him. He has received revelation, he conveys it, he follows it. And that's what a messenger is, explains a very beautiful explanation of what a messenger is, you know, here, hallelujah, Esther will Arma will receive a notification are the blind and the scene like can you not think here again, the idea of blind here somebody who was unable to see, and the one who was able to see, these two are clearly not equivalent. They're exactly the opposite, right? The one who understands this clearly is like the one who sees the one who is blinded by their own ambition or their own desires, or their own prejudices is like the one

00:59:25--> 00:59:59

who can see, right, and they're not the same. And there'll be levina harpoon worn by it, those who fear to be gathered before their Lord. Again, the fear of knowing Allah is the one who is brought this into existence. It cannot just randomly exist the way it exists. And then this one has the power to give us a purpose in life, and then hold us accountable as well. That fear is the driving force for righteousness and piety. And that's the driving force for people to accept

01:00:00--> 01:00:12

long as their Lord and the problem as their messenger worn by those who fear to be gathered before the Lord, when they will have no Guardian nor intercessor besides God, so that they may be so that they may become God fearing

01:00:13--> 01:00:54

I number 52 mentions that the followers of the messenger this was an excuse for the disbelievers they will say what the prophets have some Look, this slave is following him. And this another like slave or ex slave is his follower. You want me to sit with them? What I thought I'd run out of Bahama, that he will or she you didn't wanna watch. So disgusting attitude. The problem is told do not send away those who call upon the Lord in the morning and in the evening, seeking only by His grace, right? Don't do that. If you were to do the Fatah to Buddha, Hakuna volley mean if you were to turn them away, because they are seen as insignificant in society, you will become unjust or

01:00:54--> 01:00:57

prophet don't do that. In fact, these people

01:00:59--> 01:01:40

a lot smarter says these people are like the these arrogant mushrikeen of Makkah, the arrogant people of police, the leaders of Quraysh, they will say that these lowly ones are these lowly ones. They're the ones that God has singled out for his fevers, you know, before us that does not like that, like they would, they're so full of themselves. They're so full of themselves, they can't see beyond their own noses. And that attitude, that kind of arrogance is what prevented them. The problem said, is kibou Botha don't have grave of emptiness. arrogance is to reject the truth, you know, something is right, you still say no is wrong? Because it doesn't sit well with you. Welcome

01:01:40--> 01:02:14

to NASA and to look down upon the people thinking you're better than them, that you're so full of yourself, you think that you're better than these people, just because of how they look just because of how they dress or just because of their socio economic status. That is why these people were, you know, they couldn't stand that and this was an excuse they were using for disbelief. How can we believe in the Prophet man Bilal is his follower. Okay, the prophet, how will you kick these people out, and then maybe we'll believe that is not, you know, like, you don't dictate these terms. Allah is the one who tells He is the one who sets the terms, we accept the terms.

01:02:15--> 01:02:58

I remember 59 mentions about last month of something very beautiful. We're in Rwanda, whom fit for a villa Allah Maha Illa, who he holds the keys to the unseen, none knows them, but he, he has knowledge of all that land and sea contain. No leaf falls within without his knowledge, nor is there a single grain in the darkness of the earth, or anything wet or dry. But it's recorded in a clear record. Without auto viewing while I was in elaphiti, Theremin Subhanallah keys of the unseen are with him who Olivia toe of accumulate, he is the one who puts you to sleep at night gathers you in at night, and he knows all that you do by the day. And then he raises you up during the day. So that

01:02:58--> 01:03:46

So then, so that an appointed term may be completed. inning, you go to sleep you wake up in the morning, you go to watch today you go to sleep, and that cycle repeats and repeats repeats until an appointed term is completed, appoint determine the piranha agenda. masama is your day of dying. Okay? Again, the life cycle of life, right creation and resurrection, both mentioned together. Don't just get caught up in life and forget about your end and the purpose of your life that comes after you have been resurrected from from the dead. No makela or Elahi Magiera commend to him, You shall return and he will declare to you all that you used to do. This is iron number 60. That gives us the

01:03:47--> 01:04:28

that understanding some of the great signs of Allah why he should be worshipped alone. He is the one who is the absolute master over his servants. And he sends four guardians for your sin to Allah Kuma father, angels that protect you guardian angels that protect us from things that happen that are hurtful, right, this is something Allah does to protect us. But when that comes that we're fertile sooner angels also come and take our souls and they never feel in their duty. This is a system of Allah. And that is something that Allah tells us about here in this Surah Surah. Allah mentions Ibrahim Allison is 74 by Allah Ibrahim Ali Abhi. He is Zara at a tequila snam and earlier. This is

01:04:28--> 01:04:59

an important part because Ibrahim is mentioned with his father and Ornish their claim to fame is that they are the progeny of Ibrahim Yes, they are the kids that the you know the descendants of Ibrahim, that's a claim to fame. So last month I was mentioning Ibrahim in Islam in a very beautiful story. Do you take idols as your gods, I see that you and your people have clearly gone straight. In this way we showed Abraham our kingdom of the heavens and the earth so that he might be might have certainty of faith. Follow. Imagine

01:05:00--> 01:05:41

The idea he laid on Coachella, when the night descended on him he saw a star. He said, This is my Lord. But when it said he said, I do not love things that set then the moon similarly, then the sun similarly, and then when the sun, you know set, he said, My people I this own all that you worship besides God, I have submitted my face, I have submitted myself fully in single minded devotion to Allah only who is the Creator of the heavens and the earth, and I am not one of the polytheist Subhanallah This is the idea here, Abraham, Assam is not the first time you've seen the sun or the moon or the stars. But here now he's trying to figure out all of these things that are around us.

01:05:41--> 01:06:20

What is the purpose of these things? What like who has brought them into existence? How are they in such perfect order? Can they be in perfect order without someone being there to watch over it? That is what he is exercising in his mind. And that's what he's trying to get his people to think about. Right? That only Allah, the One who has put this whole thing into existence and in such perfect harmony, he's the only one worthy of worship, right and a couple of minutes to just wrap up here in sha Allah. Allah mentions that Ibrahim alayhis salam, this was the reasoning that Allah gave to Ibrahim against his people, right? There was an element of logic and reasoning there first and

01:06:20--> 01:07:10

foremost, not just, you know, scripture, this is the idea I add are outside the book, and either inside the book and the whole job of Ibrahim, the evidence that Allah gave to Brian was his explanation or his calling to reason to the IRS around him, the creation of Allah and that's what we have to be studying to be more convinced of Allah's magnificence and his power, okay? not forgotten, Manisha in Rebecca, Hakuna Liam, and we gave him Isaac and Jacob, each of whom we guided, as we had guided in a while before, and among his descendants were David and Solomon and job and Joseph, Moses and Aaron, and dusted, we reward the righteous and Zechariah Yeah, john, why? Isa, Jesus. What? Yes,

01:07:10--> 01:07:53

it says Elijah here, but ilias, I think is different than Elijah. okuno mineralia him, but it's my ILA and Ishmael while ESR will use voluto. Jonah and lot I think also, the ESA is not exactly Elijah, as in the Bible, but it's okay. We'll take the transition how it is. We're colons, Abdullah, Allah, Allah mean, we favored each one of them above the other people. Well, I mean, he him Missouri or to him, if wanting him and also from their forefathers, their offspring, their brothers, we chose them and guided them to a straight path. That is the guidance of God vaniqa who de la He guides to messengers throughout history. Remember one of the themes here is messengers, Revelation and lots of

01:07:53--> 01:08:10

living examples. All these great people are great messengers. That's how God guides people. He chooses who he chose, he chooses who is the messenger, and then through the messengers, he delivers his guidance. Those are the ones that Allah has given them.

01:08:12--> 01:08:39

The Scripture and wisdom and Prophethood right, and if these people rejected all prophets solemn, don't worry, Allah squanto will take you to another group of people who will not reject it and that's the people in Medina that's what is foreshadowing this idea. Those are the people those prophets are the ones who like Alina had Allah for Buddha who mocha today. So follow their guidance, follow their guidance, this is the rule for us, PSA, and that last panca has

01:08:40--> 01:09:25

picked these messengers as guides, so we follow them. And one of the things the person says I asked you for no reward for this right? He's not in it for money. There's no ulterior motives. His only intent is in what Allah declaw little ol me mean. Last bit and I'll leave you to study this yourself in sha Allah is the last part of the Jews is some beautiful signs of a loss panto in his creation all over. Remember the surah right is a makansutra and see how it's emphasizing the oneness of Allah and recognizing Allah's oneness and his magnificence and power by studying the creation all around and then the creation, let's leads us to the idea of resurrection. Look at this, I have this

01:09:25--> 01:09:59

passage, it is God who splits the seed and the fruit stone, he brings forth the living from the dead and the dead from the living right living from the dead. Here is the idea that the see this debt and living comes from it right and the dead from the living similarly, that is God how then can you delude turn away from the truth, he is the one who causes the break of the day for aliqua the spa is made the night the time for you to rest and made the sun and the moon to move in a precise measure Allah smartlace set this thing up for us right

01:10:00--> 01:10:46

He set the system up for us for as long as we've been alive. He is the one who set it up for us. He is the one who has allows the creation of the the circumstances for us to live and thrive. That is the measure determined by the Almighty, the all knowing he is the one who has made the stars as a way for you to be guided right, because you can use the stars as a compass, right through the darkness of the land and the darkness of the sea. He is the one who has brought you forth from a single soul and given you a place to stay in life, and then after that you die and you go into your grave. He is the one who sent this water from the sky. And from it produces all types of vegetation,

01:10:47--> 01:11:26

green foliage, clustered green date palms out of a sheet, bunches of dates, hanging law, vineyards and olive groves, pomegranates, you know they are mush they're behind why, you know, mother shabby, like you're different. So panela, same water, same soil, they're similar, but different. How do we look at the fruit as he causes it to grow and ripen? In that there are signs for people who are looking to believe how the fruits grow, how they bloom so popular and yet people make associates with God.

01:11:28--> 01:12:12

That's the you know that's Subhanahu hollowed hidden be May he be here he bc sacrifice sanctified above what they ascribe Look at this, I will end with this but the rest of it is one on one, the Originator of the heavens and the earth. He is the one who has brought it into existence from nothingness Unnai akula who wanted How can he have a son will enter Kula who Sahiba when he has no concert when he has no mate, when he has no wife, how can he have a son bahala kakula Shay to the contrary, he has the He is the one who created everything, but who will be conditioning him and he knows everything. So these are evidences that Allah spotter gives about himself in this beautiful

01:12:12--> 01:12:55

surah I said the last thing but I should I need to show you this one. Right That is your Lord either number one or two, the one who created everything so that's why you should worship Him alone. He is the one that cannot be contained led to the recall absorb cannot be contained in our vision. But he is the one who is fully containing all people's visions he can take. He is fully encompassing everybody and everything but he cannot be encompassed. He cannot be limited. He is beyond that. subhanho wa Taala and with that inshallah we will stop just everybody for giving me a little bit extra to finish up today. I'll see you all next, tomorrow. Same time, same place. So Patrick Aloma

01:12:55--> 01:12:58

we are going to show the La Ilaha Illa De Stefano to be like Santa Monica.
