Smilla he will hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah ala alihi wa sahbihi Mehreen As salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh, who

00:00:13 --> 00:00:59

hamdulillah it's a great blessing of Allah subhanaw taala that we find ourselves once again in the blessed month of Ramadan. And Allah subhanaw taala has allowed us to gather and congregate for the purpose of prayer and worship. And so every year, during salata, tada, we we have the reflection, the reminder, the Cateura, the talk after apricot. And what I tried to do is pick a particular theme. And then we explored that theme in the Quran in the book of Allah subhanaw taala. For this particular year, the theme that I wanted to explore in the Quran is the Stories of the Prophets that are mentioned in the Quran.

00:01:00 --> 00:01:08

Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran Wakulla Nekoosa they come in Amba it recently, man with a b2b Heath who

00:01:10 --> 00:01:13

were jakka figurehead they will help a woman to wear the Quran in meaning

00:01:14 --> 00:02:05

that all of the stories that we are telling you, Allah is addressing the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, that all of the stories that we are telling you, man in some b2b for our deck, this is something that will give strength and confirmation to your heart and truth and a very powerful reminder has come to the believers in the stories. Allah tells us in the Quran, look at the canopy Casa see him or Eva tune, Llywelyn Alba, that within the stories there is a powerful connection. Ebro Ebro is often trying to translate it as a reflection or realization. However, in the Arabic language Riboud is also the word that refers to crossing from one side to the other. So there are

00:02:05 --> 00:02:53

connections that have to be made, that can be made that are found between the Quran, the stories of the prophets, and between our lives and what we are living in experiencing as an ummah. And so in light of everything that is transpiring in the world, everything that the Ummah is experiencing, I felt that it would be very appropriate and very beneficial for us to reflect upon the stories of these prophets in the Quran. As Allah subhanaw taala told our beloved messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to do 1400 years ago, as he faced the different challenges of his time. So and there's while there's a lot of detail to the different prophets and their stories, I'm going to keep the

00:02:53 --> 00:02:56

conversation to what we find in the Quran.

00:02:57 --> 00:03:40

So the very first story that we're going to look at an explorer is, of course, the story of Adam and Eve, his Salah, the very first human being, and also the very first prophet of Allah. And this is also the very first story that is presented in the Quran in surah, Al Baqarah. So in suited Bacara, nine number 30, Allah subhanaw taala tells us that when Allah created other Maliki Salam, what exactly transpired at that time, what if other Abu Khalil Mala Ekati, in Niger, a landfill or the Khalifa chan when Allah said to the angels that I will place a successor of vice gerrant, a representative of God's will and God's authority on the earth? Follow Atelier Alfie, how many of

00:03:40 --> 00:04:26

Sufi huh? Well, yes he could do when they looked at the human being, and the nature of the human being, that this will be a creature that will have this heart and this mind and the soul, but will also have all these lusts and desires and wants and needs and necessities. They recognized that this human being will also have the capacity for evil. So they inquired, they said, Our Lord, are you going to play someone in the earth who will cause havoc within the earth, and who will shed blood within the Earth? We're not known as somebody who will be handicapped when you cut the Sulak and we praise and glorify you, our Lord, that there they were saying that our Lord, if there is a need, if

00:04:26 --> 00:04:59

there is a situation where someone is needed to go and praise and glorify you upon the earth, then we are here at your service, but this human being will also create evil on the earth. And Allah responded to their objection by saying in the womb Allah Allah Moon, I know that which you do not know. Well, I live smart Akula now Allah decided to demonstrate to the human being, why what Allah decided to demonstrate to the angels. What is remarkable about this human being, and Allah demonstrated that to the angels

00:05:00 --> 00:05:29

through a particular exercise, that exercise was ALLAH listed to other Maliki Salaam. He taught other money, some smart Akula the names of everything through my out of the Houma, Allen Mala ICA and then also presented them similarly to the angels for color and be only as smart you have Willa in quantum Saudi thing. And then Allah said, I've presented to you the names of all these things, list all of these names back to me.

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

And the angels responded by saying Subhanak all glory belongs to you. Oh, Allah Loreen Milena Ilana alum, Jana, we have no knowledge except for what you have given us. In Nikka. Angela Ali will Hakeem Indeed you are all knowing and all wise. Their point was by you presenting all of these things to us. We were not able to so quickly and immediately grasp them and learn them and basically inherit that knowledge immediately. But then Allah turned to other Maliki Salaam? And he said, Yeah, Adam, and beat him be a smoky him, why don't you tell them the names of all these different things. For them, I won't be as smart as him. Either malaise. Salam was able to list out all the names of all

00:06:18 --> 00:06:37

the things that Allah had just given him a glimpse of the idea, again, demonstrates. The idea here is, is that other Madigan Salam demonstrated the human capacity for gaming, and for acquiring and for being able to increase in knowledge and understanding,

00:06:39 --> 00:07:24

right that the human being has this remarkable capacity, the angels might be a lot more pious, they might be a lot more devout, they might be a lot more compliant than the human being is, the human being is riddled with all these other things that weigh the human being down. But the human being possesses one major quality above the angels. And that is, when the angels are created. When they are put into their work, they will do that work with perfection, but they will never grow beyond that capacity. Whereas the human being on in that moment, it was demonstrated it was proven, it was shown that the human being has this remarkable potential that Allah has given the human being, that

00:07:24 --> 00:08:07

where the human being starts is not where that human being will finish. But that human being can grow, can can increase and can do remarkable things that might not have seemed possible just yesterday for that human being. And that is the potential of the human being. It is the potential of the human being that made the human being so special, and that was embodied within other money his Salam and Allah subhanaw taala said, Allah Nakula Khomeini, Allah Mulvaney was somewhat of a lot of the work we do now, when I come to talk to me, that I not tell you, I know the unseen of the heavens in the earth, and I know that which you disclose and that which you keep hidden within you. Then

00:08:07 --> 00:08:54

Allah says what is going on in my life? It is to Dooley Adam facilitar, do Illa IBLEES of our circle Bravo catamenial caffine, Allah commanded the angels to bow in front of Adam, to demonstrate that the human being is the center of the universe, the human being, is the focal point of Allah's creation. And as far as the question that might arise, the angels bowing to the human beings that thought we're only supposed to bow before Allah. Absolutely. That is a part of the teachings of the prophets, Allah, the psalm to us, we do not bow in front of anyone other than Allah. But this gesture of bowing was allowed by Allah to demonstrate superiority and virtue. So nonetheless, Allah

00:08:54 --> 00:09:42

commanded the angels to bow before Adam, and they all complied. And now we're introduced to a new player within this particular story. And that new player is IBLEES Gan Amina Jin. He was from another creation of Allah called the jinn, they are created from fire, and they are very similar to the human being where they can be righteous. When I'm in the saloon, woman not doing a Dalek, but they can also be evil. They have the same potential like the human being, but this particular jinn, his name was bliss shaytaan. He was so pious that he used to occupy space amongst the angels. He used to live amongst the angels. And so when all the angels bowed in front of them, according to

00:09:43 --> 00:09:59

compliance with the command from Allah IBLEES refused. A bliss would not do it. A buyer was stuck Barra. He refused and he was arrogant. The Quran tells us in other places that he objected by saying Alexa Neiman now

00:10:00 --> 00:10:29

Well Calacatta, whom in three and a half Edelman who I'm better than him, he was created. Now I have been worshipping for all this time. I was create You created me from fire, You created him from clay, I am superior was stuck and he was arrogant, what kind of mineral caffeine and he became a disbeliever he was disobedient to Allah and he directly defied and disobeyed Allah and he fell out of favor with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:10:30 --> 00:11:15

Then Allah subhanaw taala and again the narration the verses of the Quran tell us what ultimately happens with Shavonne is Allah curses him? Allah Allah Allah, when Allah Allah Allah to Allah yummy Deen that he was cursed by Allah. And he asked Allah subhanaw taala fondue Nila yummy Yuba throne color for in the communal moon during that fine Allah said that you will have time until the Day of Resurrection, the day of judgment to live and in the world. And he finally made the vow phobia is ethical over in America in the coming home will McCullough seen that I will make every effort until my final moment in this world to try to lead this human beings astray. That became the cause of my

00:11:15 --> 00:11:59

downfall because he still did not grasp his own faults. shaytaan did not grasp his own fault. He was looking for someone else to blame. It has to be somebody else's fault. Somebody else did it. Adam did it. It's his fault, but he would not accept his fault. So he said I will do everything in my power to lead this human being astray. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala tells other Maliki Salam at the man Allah created for other Malays Salam espouse his wife Hawa and Allah told them was going into was ojochal JANA now you go and live in paradise will Kula mean her rather than hate to shake Touma, you may eat and enjoy yourself in paradise however you wish. When I took Robert Harvey Shudra but

00:11:59 --> 00:12:48

they were given a test. The test was do not go near this particular tree for takuna Amina Vani mean if you do so, then you will be committing an error you will be disobeying Allah. For as 11 was shaped on one ha but then shaped on dissuaded them, che gone persuaded them to go and consume from that tree. And they went and they ate facula minha they ate from the tree. And the result of that was for Raja Hammami Makana fee, that they were removed from paradise. And Allah said what could not be to become labor then I do go down onto the earth and human beings and shaytaan will be locked in this battle until the end of time when I come out of the Musa Koran and the earth will be your home

00:12:48 --> 00:13:25

and your abode will Matera en de la Hain and your provisions will be provided you on the earth until the time is written for you to go back to your Lord. But now Adam Ali Salam was on the earth, and either Malian Salam had committed this indiscretion. He had made this error while I saw the mudra HuFa. He had made this error yet eaten from the tree that Allah had forbidden him from but other mounting said I'm different than shaytaan was so remorseful. He was so regretful.

00:13:26 --> 00:13:38

He was riddled with this remorse and this regret, this internal pain that I disobeyed my lord, I made the mistake that my Lord forbade me from

00:13:39 --> 00:13:50

I did this wrong, I made a mistake. I must make him make amends. You know, there's this idea about the ego of the human being.

00:13:51 --> 00:13:59

You're Kulu Anna Anna, the prophets Allah he says the human beings as my my eye, Molly, Molly Mine, mine

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

and the prophets, Allah, He said, This is a problem. We have to work this out of ourselves, but the one place where it is not only allowed, it is praiseworthy, for the human being to talk about himself, for the human being to claim something, to point to himself to speak in the first person to say I, my mind is when the human being talks about his or her mistakes.

00:14:28 --> 00:14:36

I did this, I made this mistake, my mistake, my error, my sin.

00:14:37 --> 00:14:44

That's the place where it's praiseworthy. That's the kind of pointing to oneself that is beautiful to Allah

00:14:45 --> 00:14:47

that makes a person beloved to Allah.

00:14:48 --> 00:14:59

And that's what are the mighty salaam did and he kept repenting and repenting. And Allah tells us for tilaka the mummy Robbie he then Allah gave Adam the word

00:15:00 --> 00:15:44

To repent with, and the Quran tells us those words in Surah number seven Surah Tila are off. I in number 23 Bala Robina alumna and fusina were ylim Tafinlar now what's our Hannah Len akuna minal Hasini. Adam and Hawa they said Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves, we made a mistake. And if you do not forgive us and you do not have mercy on us, we indeed will be ruined. We will not survive this. And Allah tells us for taba Alayhi Allah subhanaw taala accepted their repentance in the who who had to wobble Rahim and Allah is the one who always accepts repentance.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:48

He always accepts repentance.

00:15:49 --> 00:15:52

That's one of the two eyes that's always answered by Allah.

00:15:53 --> 00:16:02

That Allah Allah forgive me. Allah will always forgive us, or Rahim because His Mercy knows no limits.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:19

Or now we do min Hajime but Allah subhanho wa Taala said, You are forgiven. However, you will continue to occupy on and you will continue to live within the earth for in my yard to Nagamine Huda but I will not leave you on your own
