Bismillah you will hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah He was he a Jew marrying a salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Shala continuing with our series, here in the month of Ramadan titled illuminated, where we look at many of the places in the Quran where Allah subhanaw taala mentions a nude, the concept of light and illumination.
Today we're going to be looking at a sutra that we've looked at previously, because this sutra has multiple mentions of a new light and illumination within it. So we're going to be revisiting today's Sultan Hadid
certain Hadith which is the 57th Surah of the Quran, Surah Surah number 57.
And Sultan Hadid, which is a Moroccan revelation
to talks about,
a lot of very important things from amongst them is the concept of the praise and the glorification of Allah, the names and the attributes of Allah. And it also talks about our spiritual responsibilities, our obligations to Allah.
And Allah subhanaw taala says in the sutra In ayah, number nine, who Allah the universe Zilla Allah obviously he, I got him begging it. He Allah is the One who is sending down
he's revealing little by little bit by bit, piece by piece I by idea, he is revealing his sending down upon his chosen servant upon his chosen slave, why am I good Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ah yeah, tin verses and signs Bay in our tin that are clear as day
that are very clear.
Why you collegia come in Avila Mattila noon, to extract you from the layers upon layers upon layers of darkness that you are buried under
and bring you into the light.
This is an analogy for taking you out of disbelief. Gopher
a disconnect from Allah and to bring you into faith and Eman and a relationship with Allah
what in Allah have become Lara oh four Rahim one and indeed Allah is with you always has been is and will always be in dealing with you Laura. Ooh fun. Rahim one roof Rafa in the Arabic language means compassionate,
to be very compassionate.
And a lot of times the if you want to understand right this idea of a Rafa compassion, it can be seen. It can be seen being demonstrated in how parents interact with their children.
That there's a compassion there, there's a softness, a gentleness
that even the you don't most rough and tough person.
Like they might be normally very a little bit even harsh in their demeanor.
But even that person, you see them with their own child.
And you see such a soft and gentleman sentimental side of them that you couldn't have imagined.
And so Ruth itself is the one who is extremely compassionate. Rahim is the one who is extremely merciful. So Allah is saying here that Allah has always been very compassionate, merciful with you and you will continue to be. So what we learned here is now Allah subhanaw taala tells us there are a few things working together in Congress. There are a few things working together here that are synchronized together. What's going on here? First of all, there's Allah subhanaw taala, who is merciful, He is compassionate and he is facilitating guidance for you. Number two, that Allah has appointed has sent the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So there is someone
have the most remarkable character, the most admirable qualities, the most astounding personality
who has been placed amongst you for your guidance.
So now there's this remarkable human being, like the superhuman that has been placed amongst you for your guidance. Thirdly, Now Allah is sending that messenger of his, who is the servant of Allah, He is sending him his own speech, not just a message from him, but a message in his own words, the words of God Almighty Himself.
And all of this now,
the combination of this creates a process,
an extraction process, that has the ability to extract a human being a human being who by nature, is a bit of a, you know, a bit of a conundrum. A human being that is a little bit tough to deal with a times a human being that doesn't take instruction
very easily, or naturally, at times,
to extract that human being from darkness and bring that bring that human being into the light. And Allah guarantees that that extraction process will be very gentle will be very merciful. But then Allah subhanaw taala goes on to tell us something and there's a few important points I want to make here about what this guidance looks like in a person's life. Once a person has been brought into the light, once a person can see now because they have light, then what happens to a person? Well, am I lucky Allah Twinfield cofece are really lucky. When Illa Hirafu sama what he will earn. So now Allah subhanaw taala is saying, Why do you not spend in the way of Allah?
Because if you can see now you have the light,
you shouldn't be very easily you should very easily be able to differentiate between
the temporary life of this world
how everyone's chasing the same scraps, only to die and leave it all behind. Miley Miley, your Kulu even Adam O'Malley valley the process says the human being says my money my money, my stuff my stuff. And the process says well Malika
what belongs to this human being Illa bomb and Falcon
Oh Salman for Felisa who were Allahu
okay, what you ate was yours. The clothes that you wore and wore them out, those were yours.
Everything else ends up belonging to somebody else. Everything else ends up longing to someone else.
Right so, Allah subhanaw taala is saying that why do you not spend in the way of Allah and Allah owns the heavens in the earth? And then Allah subhanaw taala says something very interesting. Ly yes, that we mean goon man and Facom in public, hey, Wakata.
This is very interesting. Allah subhanaw taala says that
there are two groups of people that are not on the same level.
There are those who spent their wealth
before the conquest of Mecca. What is the conquest of Makkah, the conquest of Makkah, basically was MCCA coming into the fold of Islam, and thereby all of Arabia coming into the fold Islam. And what that essentially meant was Islam one,
the muscles, one, the prophets a lot is on one.
So what this is saying is that those people who invested into Islam before Muslims achieved the victory.
Their dividends will not be the same as those who invested in after
the Muslims are already won.
And that's a very logical point, right? Those who got in early, they made a lot more money, right, like in the marketplace, here in the spiritual marketplace, right check mokotjo recited the IFRS interra we have to look at Jarrah to G Caminada vanillin Allah is saying let me tell you about a business, a marketplace a transaction. That won't just make you money. No, no, it will save your soul from the fire of hell.
Took me no no will it was
To the viewer to Jackie doin, Fi sebelah he and while in one physical, you have to believe in Allah and then you got to invest in to the religion of Allah. You got to put in your money, your time, your effort, you got to sacrifice for the religion.
Okay? So here, it's a very simple fact, before if a trauma occurred the first 20 years of the mission of the process on the muscles were underdogs.
They were being defeated, they were being chased. They were being exiled, they were being tortured, they were being murdered, they were being massacred.
Those who had the kind of faith and the strength to get in at that time, they are just not comparable to those who came during the last three years.
And that's not a knock on the people who came later. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala says, Hola.
Cthulhu that though, they will have a greater reward than those who came in later than those who came in the last three years. But Allah says well could learn why the Allahu hasna, everybody is rewarded. Everybody is good, whether you came before the victory or after the victory, whether you came when his son was being defeated, or when Islam was winning,
and dominating. Either way, you made the right choice. But it's still stating the fact that those who got in early, you have to understand, you have to recognize you have to appreciate what they have done.
And this is a very important part of our tradition,
to recognize the sacrifices of the people that came before us.
Right that the Sahaba Radi Allahu anhu, the companions of the process, and that's why we speak about them with such reverence. That's why we speak about them with such great respect. That's why we name our children online and Bilad and Hamza and Musab
and Amar and salon and that's why we think our children
that's why we name our daughters, Xena of infatti mine, I shine Khadija.
That's why we do that.
Because we understand, they made that sacrifice, so that we can enjoy some here today
that we understand that before the books of fic were written, you had Abu Hanifa and Molly Khanna, Shafi and Akhmad, who are struggling and, you know, analyzing and assessing and developing the entire system, that we can just lean back and rest upon.
That before there were Hadith books, sitting on shelves all over the world, in our homes and in our masajid that Bukhari and Muslim and Timothy and necessity. And if it Elijah and Malik
that they were struggling and toiling. They traveled 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of miles on foot to gather and collect all these Hadith together so that we can sit here very comfortably and say cholera Sula, Somalis.
And that's why we appreciate your mama Tabari and her to be, and even cathedra, and Rosie and all the rest. Why? Because they struggled and toiled and traveled and sacrificed for 3040 50 years of their lives. So they could sit and then right at the feet of the Quran,
to where I can sit very comfortably in my home, on my couch, and pick up a volume of tafsir Ibn cathedra. And say, let me see what this means.
So we recognize those sacrifices that came before us. And similarly,
similarly in our communities, we need to apply this at every level.
In our communities,
there needs to be there is and we need to acknowledge and maintain a level of appreciation. That doesn't mean things don't move forward. It doesn't mean that we're not going to have to maybe sometimes move things forward and do things a different way. But that should never compromise the appreciation
that we have for the people that laid the foundation that we are building upon.
And this is a part of our deen in our religion that Allah tells us about here. And then the last thing that I'll mention is this Imam Razi, who I was just referencing him I'm founder Dena Razi, Rahim, Allah Allahu taala, who probably who has written what is, you know, very,
very, what he has written what I would refer to as one of the most remarkable explanations of
The Quran So Imam Razi Rahim Allahu taala. And he says she pointed out something Allah says like is that women come and lie is the women common uncommon tabulate effect he will cotton.
Allah subhanaw taala says, You have to appreciate the people who did who spent their wealth for the dean for Islam, and they fought.
So Allah points out two things. They spent their wealth for Islam, they gave their wealth for Islam. They sacrifice their own personal wealth for Islam. They donated, they contributed
and they fought physically in the battlefield. Two things.
But he says which one does Allah mentioned first, when and fucka when the company first he worked out?
Normally when you hear the to one person wrote a check and the other person went and fought in the battlefield, which one seems more valiant fighting? Which one seems more courageous fighting?
Which one therefore has more reward spending?
Allah says spending first because which one is more difficult? Spending?
Spending is more difficult.
Giving your wealth it's very difficult, very challenging.
I was reading this narration about Abu Bakr Siddiq karate Allahu taala. Now listen to this.
And think about what this means. Omar bin al Khattab Radi Allahu Taala and who says, Come to chi then and then a visa Salam.
I was sitting with the Prophets Allah the Salah,
were in the WHO Abu Bakr
Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu Anhu was sitting with the prophets of salaam wa alayhi wa.
And he was wearing a coat like kind of like a shawl or an overcoat.
But the Hala half he said that he was he learned
and he didn't have a shirt on underneath.
So imagine I was just wearing this coat and I don't have a silver shirt on underneath.
And the coat was not big enough. So it was open in the middle. So his chest was showing.
And as you can imagine, that would look kind of odd brother just sitting there with this coat on and no shirt underneath and his chest is showing. Who's a yeah Roger.
What are you doing?
For unedited video, Alisha.
The Archangel Gabriel Jibreel Jibreel Ali Salam comes down to the process.
For call Mr. Li ra Ababa Quran Allah here on Hala haffi Sadri.
He says that
why is Abu Bakr Gibreel says the prophets Allah the same Yadavs will Allah why is Abu Bakr sitting there with his chest wearing this coat or the shawl with his chest showing?
For color and for karma? Allahu Allah Jakob Lowell
is the Prophet saw some said Gibreel the reason why he's wearing a coat that doesn't fit him
without a shirt on underneath, and his test is showing, because he spent everything he had to help me spread Islam.
he gave away everything he had.
The van has, you know, we say oh, he all he had was a shirt on his back pocket even gave the shirt off of his back.
And Allah is saying here in the Quran. That's something that requires even more courage, and even more bravery
that requires even more fearlessness and ferocity, and faith
than being willing to confront someone and fight somebody.
Because you you're giving away everything you have. You're willing to leave yourself nothing in your hand.
Except for like Abu Bakr said to the process Allah Allahu wa rasuluh
I have my faith and Allah, I have my trust and faith in the Messenger of Allah. And that is enough for me on Messenger of Allah.
