Saramonic McCullough Hello Barakatuh
and Shala before we get started with the
talk for today, because I didn't want to just kind of lose track of it and forget to mention it but
a family mashallah that's been in the community here and very active in the community, particularly the Flower Mound community, brother, I bust out the boy and his son Oddo, who's, you know, been here for a lot of our different programs over the years.
Their son diamonds passed away very suddenly and tragically yesterday. And so tomorrow in sha Allah see sultan janazah at 2pm After sellout of the hurt at the flower on masjid, so inshallah we request everyone to try to make it for the salon to janazah and to keep the family in their house. May Allah subhanaw taala make it easy for them.
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah he was he was Sufi edge marine jolla continuing with our study of IR to mood illuminated within the Quran.
Today in sha Allah we're going to be talking about
yes, today insha Allah we're going to be talking about Surah to enhance surah number six, I am a 91.
In this ayah once again we see Allah subhanaw taala mentions the concept of nude, light illumination. However Allah subhanaw taala talks about what is the belief and what is the dynamic of the believer with Allah subhanaw taala that this light what does it allow us to understand what does it help us understand about our Creator about our relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada. So in this ayah Allah subhanaw taala says warmonger, Allah has Academy
which translates to, and this has been explained by a number of the different scholars and the different prophecy room. Oh my god that Allah ha ha agree that Allah subhanaw taala says they have no grasp of God's true measure.
And the many of the commentators of the Quran, while commenting on this particular phrase, this very powerful phrase that occurs multiple places within the Quran. They explain that Abdullah Alia says Mama was a FUBU Hunter Sefa t he, they do not have the ability to describe Allah as he deserves to be described. I've done my best to tell the Anima says, well madam Allah.
They do not venerate Allah as he deserves to be venerated.
And in yet another,
another wrench of this oppression says, ma for Allah hypermodern for tea, they do not recognize a law, they do not recognize the Majesty of Allah, the greatness of Allah, the superiority of Allah, as he deserves to be recognized. And this is something that's very, very important, that without this emaan without this understanding, without this belief, without this light of iman without this illumination from Allah,
we cannot even begin to understand Allah or even appreciate the greatness of Allah and be able to humble ourselves before Allah as he deserved from us.
And then Allah tells us is automa until Allah Allah Krishna wha
that what is the situation in the darkness? What is the reality of this darkness when somebody lacks that light lacks that faith lacks that belief and that the man, what does that do to a person is on the mountains of Allah who I never should have been changed. They say, God has not sent down anything upon any human being. They deny they reject all concept of Revelation. God has not communicated anything to any human being. Pull, rather say mud and XAML kita
say to them, who sent down the revelation who sent down the book who sent down the Scripture. I love the geography he moves on
that came to Moses. And it was a light, and it was a guidance for humanity. But what did you do with it? Did you Aluna who karate is.
Karate is in the Arabic language means to write things down on pieces of paper scraps of paper. So what did you do? You broke down a little bit on this scrap of paper here, you wrote down a little bit on that scrap of paper here, you wrote down a little bit on this little piece of paper over there.
And then you dispose of it, you switch it around, you tear it up, you change it around, you alter it, you hide it,
as it suits your agenda, to Kaduna harbor to fulica theorem. And then you show it to people, but you hide most of it. We're limited, Madam Chair.
And you were taught, God taught you Allah taught you that which you did not used to know. Nor did your forefathers know this.
So who sent all of this, who taught you everything that you know, who gave you revelation, who gave you an understanding of who you are, and what the purpose of your existence is bull Allah, Allah provided all of this to you. So the very important lesson that Allah mentions here in this particular verses this,
that the revelation from Allah, the guidance from Allah is meant to be a light and an illumination. It's supposed to guide you. It's supposed to allow you to see the world for what it truly is, that this life in this world is temporary. And all the objectives and all the motives and all the agendas and everything that everyone is seeking is temporary. But Allah is eternal, Allah is Almighty will ask you not to hate or whatever God, the life of the hereafter is longer lasting, and it is better.
But what ends up happening is if you read the message, if you hear the message, but you don't internalize it, you don't understand it, you don't believe in it, you don't interact with it. You'll have it written down here and there. And this is a particular problem. We as people sometimes become obsessed with documentation.
Right, as long as that there's a massage sitting on the shelf. As long as that the book is sitting here on the table, I feel satisfied on content, whereas the Quran is right here.
But understanding that, while this is good, and this is helpful, but it is a means to an end. It is a tool, it is a resource.
The real impact and the effect of Revelation is inside.
So you can have all the Messiah from the world. You can write down everything, you can document everything. But if you don't understand it, and you don't internalize it, it's no good. And so Allah subhanaw taala reminds us by Todd telling us about what people in the past did. They wrote it down.
But it didn't help them. Because the moment that it clashed with what they wanted,
they were willing to put the revelation behind. And they were willing to make the priority, what they wanted what they desired. And so Allah subhanaw taala reminds us here that recognize the blessing that you have, and study this revelation. Allow it to enter into your heart. Allow it to illuminate you in your life. And the first fruit of that is that your relationship with Allah will change.
You will understand the greatness of Allah. You will appreciate the Majesty of Allah. You will be humbled before Allah, you will be appreciative to Allah, you will recognize Allah and everything that Allah does in your life.
And finally, Allah tells us, from mother whom freehold to give me a loved one,
that if someone does not choose, someone does not choose to actually learn and listen and absorb and understand. Nobody else can help that person. And Allah tells the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam keep conveying the message to them. But at some point that'll leave them fee holding him Jana aboon to keep playing their games and to keep slandering you to keep lying about you to keep rejecting you just leave them be because if someone does not want the message, then nobody else can really help them. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to always keep us open to receiving the message. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to always keep our hearts open, so that we may continue to learn and we
continue to grow. And may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to have
appreciate him to be grateful to him to be humbled before Him and to understand His Majesty as he deserved from us. I mean, you're allowed me to Zack McLaughlin Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
