smell like you will have Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who ala alihi wa sahbihi admiring Salam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
Shall I continuing with our series eliminated where we are taking a look at many of the Iots in the Quran, the verses in the Quran that talks about the concept of new light, illumination.
And what we're going to be talking about today, first and foremost, the idea that we're going to be looking at is from SUTA. Number nine, chapter number nine, which is called similar to Toba, Surah Toba And verse number 32. Sort of the doba just for a brief moment because this will help us appreciate what the verse is saying. SUTA Toba is what the Sahaba many of the companions of the Prophet salatu salam they said this comment that when sunnah to Toba was revealed.
They said sort of the Toba was the sharp end of the sword
suit the Toba, they said is the sharp end of the sword
meaning SUTA Toba was very direct, is very, it's very strong.
And it actually is engaging with and it's discussing the situation with between the Muslims and the enemies of the Muslims, the people that are trying to kill the Muslims, the people that are trying that I've been tormenting the Muslims, it deals with that whole dynamic. So I wanted to just I wanted you to have that in mind that this chapter this sutra, and that's why this is this chapter. So that the Toba chapter number nine is the only chapter in the Quran that does not begin with Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
And there's a technical reason for that. And the technical reason is that when the prophets Allah the psalm recited to us the Ummah, whenever he would start a sutra, he would say Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim, Al hamdu Lillahi
Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim. Alif Lam Meem Saad? Bismillah AR Rahman Rahim Yes, Aluna Carnelian fan.
He would always say Bismillah at the beginning of a surah when he started reading this Surah Surah number nine.
He said, without saying Bismillah Bara to mean Allahu wa rasuluh
he didn't say Bismillah. So we don't say Bismillah because we were told to read the Quran the way he reads it. All right. That's a technical reason. I leave it to be Taalib the great companion of the Prophet SAW Selim, right the cousin of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm the son in law of the prophets, Allah the son, I live in a Vitaly of the valley. He actually says he says that one of the wisdoms, one of the like profound realizations that we had,
as far as there not being a Bismillah, in the beginning of the surah was when the surah came down. And we read this Hold on, we said well,
because like I said, it's the sharp end of the sword. It came right at the enemies. It came out the, the Jewish tribes that were that had been tormenting the Muslims. It came out the Christian kingdoms that were threatening the Muslims. It came at the Mushrikeen, the idolaters, the Quraysh that had been tormenting the muscle for 20 years, it came out the hypocrites who were constantly trying to stab the Muslims in the back secretly, it came out everybody called out everybody. Someone told the Sahaba said that we started looking at ourselves wondering like if we were next that the sutra is just going to clean everybody out.
Right so he said Oliver the Allahu says that once we read the sutra, we said oh,
that's why there's no Bismillah at the beginning of it because Bismillah R Rahman Rahim means what? In the Name of Allah.
I began in the Name of Allah,
the Most Merciful.
The extremely compassionate.
Bismillah is about invoking the mercy and the compassion of Allah.
is the sharp end of the sword.
This sutra was when Allah said
Some people will face my wrath.
No more mercy for some people. Right? So it's very profound if you think about it. Anyways, let's get to this. So now that you understand the premise of this hurrah, this will make a little bit more sense to you.
You know, in every story,
there's a villain.
Every story has a bad guy has an antagonist has a villain.
So this this what we've been talking about here, the light, the nude, the illumination from Allah.
This idea tells us that there's some there's some bad people, there are some villains there is there are there are certain antagonists. Okay? What does the verse say? The verse says UD Duna
UD Duna. What do those villains want? It identifies who they are at the end of the verse. So right now, this is by the way, your style in the Quran, right in the Arabic language, trying to see if any of the 30 year students are here, right? We just covered this not too long ago. It's called it Murphy McConnell is hard. Right? So you don't identify who you're talking about immediately. You say they, he, and it makes you think who you're talking about. And it goes on and then it reveals the identity at the end. You know, how that creates some suspense. It creates a little bit more curiosity. Right? This is a style in classical Arabic and this is used in the Quran. It Mar Viva
Camila, there you are, alright. So
Allah says UD Duna. They want to what do they want to do? And you defeat Oh Nullah.
They want to extinguish, they want to put out, you know, you put out a fire, you stamp out a fire, they want to stamp out they want to put up they want to extinguish they want to turn off.
They want to cut the power to, to one, nude Allah,
the light of Allah, they want to extinguish it. Think about everything that we've talked about so far. What is that light of Allah, it is the Quran. It is the legacy of the prophets a lot he said them. It is the emaan that is in our hearts in our faith. It is our worship and our good deeds and our practice. They want to shut all of this down.
The emaan the Quran, this the Prophet delay the life and legacy of the prophets,
the good deeds, the worship, the congregating in Masjid that night, right, think about how powerful that is that the prophets, Allah, the Psalm said, coming to the masjid, in the hours of darkness gives you the light of the Imam when it's dark outside, and you and you make that track and you make that sacrifice and you come here, this is where you gain internal light.
They want to shut all of this down.
Okay, but then here's the interesting thing. How are they trying to shut that down? How are they trying to extinguish all of that be of why he him? Of why in the Arabic language is the plural of the word thumb?
Right, which means mouth. They're trying to extinguish the light of God, the nude of Allah with their mouths. Now, let me explain one thing, right? Because there's a lot of belaga There's a lot of eloquence in this verse, right? So you have to understand certain mechanisms, certain rhetorical devices, in the English language, when we say when you hear that, they're trying to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths. What what what you understand from that is, they're trying to do that, through their speech. They're talking against it, right? They're talking against it. But the thing is in the Arabic language, that's not what this expression means. In the Arabic language when
you want to say they are trying to extinguish the light of Allah with their words.
Then you say you do not leave you read una una Luggie be Colombian, Billy Sonny. In the Arabic language, you say tongue.
You know how we say the mouth is what you speak with you speak with your mouth. In the Arabic language, they don't use the mouth as the tool for speaking that's not the expression. In the Arabic language, the expression for speak, the tool that is used for speaking is the tongue.
That's why you hear that right. A lot of times in the Quran. A lot of times in the Hadith, what does the prophets have some say if you can guarantee me your your tongue? He didn't say your mouth. He said your tongue
He said guard your tongue if suddenly Sonic guards your tongue. So in the Arabic language, when you say oh they're trying to extinguish the light of Allah with their words, by campaigning, with their propaganda, with their slander with their rhetoric, then the word would have been Lisa and be elsina to him. But that's not Oh ALLAH said Allah said be a flighty him with their mouths. So what does that expression mean? They want to extinguish it with their mouth. In classical Arabic, that expression means that if there's a candle burning, how do you extinguish a candle?
By blowing on it? The mouth is an expression for exhaling
by blowing out air by exhaling you understand that?
So now think about what Allah said. And that's it's so beautiful, right? What's
Imam even cathedra ham Allahu Allah what He says in his secede, he says from masala Humphrey Delica the mother Emmanuel redo, and you three assure a Shamcey Omura Camry being a three
that the example that Allah is giving is that imagine somebody tries to stand outside like today. Today was a good Texas day. Did you feel it?
Very good. This is the thing I'm carrying this little bit of, you know grudge with all these northerners who come here and tell us how we freak out about cold weather. Enjoy the heat. Okay. So today the sun was out. You could feel it. So now imagine somebody goes outside, stands there under the sun, and then tries to put out the light of the sun with their mouth.
I mean, imagine what a fool that person would look like. Or imagine on the night of the full moon.
On the night of the full moon on the 14th Fifth 14th Night, somebody goes out there stands under the full moon and tries to put out the light of the full moon by blowing on it.
Think about what a fool that person would be. Well have that Lhasa Villa La he that's a logical impossibility. What are you doing? So Allah says in the Quran, that them trying to fight against the nude of Allah, them trying to shut this down.
The Quran being recited
the Quran being read, the Sunnah being practiced and lived, the houses of Allah being filled. Allah being remembered. People fasting people praying people giving charity
right brothers shaking each other's hands, sisters, hugging and greeting one another.
This note of emaan them trying to shut this down is akin is similar to
any name even more foolish than somebody standing outside at noon, in the Texas summer, trying to put up the sun with his mouth by blowing on it.
And that's what Allah subhanaw taala says then we Billa who INLA and YouTube MINOURA who Allah refuses for there to be any other scenario any other outcome other than and YouTube Mandurah hope that Allah will complete his light. Allah will complete his light, meaning what
the Quran will be revealed. And then the Quran will be read, and it will be memorized. And it will be studied, and it will be analyzed, and it will be lived and it will be loved and it will be adored
for 1400 years, and that the life of the prophets Allah the center will be preserved and will be cherished and will be studied and will be lived and will be emulated for 1400 years.
That no matter where you go in the world,
you will find the masjid you will no matter where you go in the world you will hear the words hate you Allah salah, haga Allah, Allah, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah.
The nobody can stop this.
Allah has refused to let anybody get in the way God's light will be fulfilled, will be realized. And then Allah says hello Katie Hello Kathy rune.
This displeases those who disbelief. And you know what's very interesting about the word Cofer Kaffir. Somebody who disbelieved the word Kufa, in the Arabic language means to hide, it means to conceal the opposite of light.
That's why the farmer in old Arabic used to be called caffeine. Because they put the seed inside the ground, they hide the seed in the ground.
Right? And so it's fascinating that the caffeine is trying to hide the light. But Allah subhanaw taala says, No, the light will be made. You know what will be seen, and will be experienced and will be shared. The takeaway that I would suggest, from the message of this, I have chapter nine, verse number 32, surah. Nine is number 32. Is the confidence that we should have when practicing our Islam. This is the truth. This is from Allah. Nobody can stop it. Nobody can get in its way.
And so be content. Be confident, be dignified.
And practice your Islam. Practice your faith.
Well, I have one I feel lucky no matter ally. And don't worry about what anybody else has to say. Because they're just people standing outside at noon, trying to put up the sun by blowing air onto the sun. All right, may Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that's been said and heard Subhanallah he will be handy he Subhanak hola como be Hambrick Nash. Hello Hola.
