Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while and he was actually he is Marine, Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Inshallah, continuing with our study of the Ayat of a new, the verses regarded to illumination within the Quran. Today we're going to be talking about SOTL EDA surah. Number five is number 44.
Now, previously what we've touched upon is the fact that this nude, this illumination, this is a gift from Allah. Right Allah subhanaw taala said well Angela in a Quran movie now, we have revealed to you We have sent down to you this very clear light this illumination. And then in the previous session, we also talked about how Allah subhanho wa Taala referred to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had the Jochum in Allah He knew rune Wakita movie, that Allah subhanaw taala said, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to you, and He is like a beacon of light, for you a guiding shining example, for you to follow. So what we've established here is that Allah has blessed us. Allah has
given us these great gifts of the Quran and the example of the Prophet alayhi Salaam. And this is the guiding light within our lives. However, as we know, and as we understand, all gifts come with a certain amount of responsibility. There's a responsibility that comes with these gifts. They are not to be wasted, they are not frivolous, they are not to be taken for granted.
And the way Allah subhanaw taala teaches us about the responsibility that comes with these gifts, is by telling us about the people that came before us. That there were people before you who also received gifts. But what did they do? They didn't value those gifts. They took them for granted. In fact, they went even further, and they corrupted those gifts.
And the consequence of that was that they ended up outside of the light. They found themselves once again in darkness. So Allah subhanaw taala. And I mentioned this in one of the previous sessions, the prophets a lot. He says, A sir even when we're either the lady that the fortunate person is the one who learns a lesson from the mistakes of others. So Allah subhanaw taala teaches us about our responsibility by telling us about the people that came before us that wasted these gifts. Allah subhanaw taala says inna and Zaneta rotta fie her who didn't want to ruin
the most definitely we had sent down to total, the Old Testament, the revelation to the nations of the past. And in that Revelation, there was guidance, and there was light, they were granted the same light, the same illumination.
And what was the role of that light in their lives? Yeah, good. We'll be heading to be Yun Alladhina assalamu
that the prophets and the messengers of Allah, who were fully submitted and obedient to Allah, they guided their communities, and they legislated and ruled amongst their people based off of that guidance in light. They used it as a true Guiding Light as a code to live by.
Linda Dena Linda, Dina hadou and they did this for their people who were their people. They were the people that we know as the Jewish nation, the Jews, the the people of the past, but he saw
and then the prophets one day left their people they passed away
What are burning
but the responsibility transferred? Rabbani Yun refers to pious righteous people, the people of God, the pious, righteous people. And a Bar. Bar means scholars, the people of knowledge, they took that same Guiding Light,
be Mr. Federman key tabula, and they preserved it.
The preservation of the light, the preservation of the message is twofold. Number one, preserving the words of it, you have to read it, you have to learn it, you have to memorize it. And then there is a second layer to it. The second layer is you have to preserve the teachings of it. You have to live it, you have to implement it within your life. Right? You have to live the actual lessons and the morals and the ethics and the principles that you find within that guidance.
What kind of Allah he shahada, and they were witnesses upon this, this was their responsibility.
And Allah told them for Latasha, when NASA works, show me Do not fear the people. What does that mean, don't fear the people. What it means is, when this light from Allah tells you what is right and what is wrong, when it tells you what to do and what not to do.
And that might not be very popular amongst the people. We understand this very well, right? It might not be popular amongst the people.
Do not give into the people do not crumble under the pressure of the people. Do not be undone by social pressures. Do not fear the people.
If you do fear, anything will show me. Allah says fear me. Now this is a bit of a heavy message here. But it's a necessary message. It's a very important message.
That at the end of the day, if you are going to feel that pressure of something, feel the pressure of having to answer to Allah,
instead of feeling the pressure of having to appease the masses.
And then the next thing Allah says, well I touched Ruby it feminine Allah
do not sell out,
do not sell out, my verses, the verses of Allah, the signs of Allah, the message of Allah, this illumination gifted to you by Allah, do not sell it out feminine kalila for a little bit of worldly material things. Don't give it up for paltry scraps of this world.
Right? And this is the second thing that okay, maybe you're not someone who is feeling intimidated by the society and all the social pressures. But then there is this constant conflict within each and every single person where we do have a certain amount of worldly ambition.
We do all have within us, you know, the desire for material things. And at some point in some time, that desire for material things is going to directly clash
with what Allah is telling us to do. And at that point in time, do not sell out what Allah is what Allah has given you, and what Allah is telling you to do, in order to gain some material things, because it's all temporary, easy come easy go.
When Muslim can be Manzil Allah, because when people deliberately actively,
belligerent belligerently stubbornly choose to neglect and ignore, and forsake and give up what Allah has given them the gift from Allah, that light, that illumination, that guidance that Allah has given them for Allah who will care for you don't they have started to now tread the path that leads to disbelief. They have now started to slide down that slippery slope
that God forbid, may Allah protect us all, but could lead to disbelief. And so in this verse, we've been talking about this light from Allah. And it's a beautiful, powerful gift from Allah.
But in this verse, we receive the very necessary reminder
that this comes with responsibility.
And to summarize, the responsibility is, number one, we need to use it as the primary guiding force in our life. We need to keep this quote
On this guidance from Allah, the example of the prophets, Allah, he needs to remain front and center for us in our lives. Number two, we need to take on the responsibility. Of course, Allah has taken the responsibility of preserving it. But we all should want to play a role in the preservation of it. How do we do that? By reading it by listening to it, like we're doing here every night. And by memorizing it and learning it. And then secondly, by living it, that as we continue to learn its lessons, let's actually start to realize that within our lives, thirdly, Allah tells us at some point in time, when you make that commitment, it's going to come to it's going to clash is going to
come into conflict with what society
wants, and what society deems acceptable or not acceptable. And at that time, stand firm, be mindful of Allah, and ignore all those social pressures. And fourthly, you have an internal battle to fight as well. That sometimes the Quran will tell you, lying and cheating is haram.
You must be honored, honest and trustworthy and honorable. But you find yourself at the table, making deals, where with a little bit of twisting, and a little bit of bending and a little line here and a little lie there, you can make more money.
Now you have to fight that internal battle, but that money is not worth it. I'm not going to sell out the guidance from Allah, that light, that light that I have inside of me, I'm not going to extinguish that like myself for a few dollars.
And Allah subhanaw taala tells us that as long as we can remain committed to this course, we will always be in the light and we will find this light guiding us on the Day of Judgment. Otherwise, if we give up on this light, then we will have no light to bask in, not in this life and not in the next May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the ability to live in accordance with the Quran and with the life of the prophet Allah.
