hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa rahmatullah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah. mousseline, Aliki. vasavi, are meant to be our son, Elijah Medina.
In the previous lesson, yesterday's dose we talked about it was the first number 22 and 23. I mentioned how, within this passage about medium rhodiola, and the birth of Isa his Salam
within it, this is kind of the second phase of that narrating of that story, for hemella, to where she actually becomes pregnant, fronted by that Biggie and then because of the pregnancy, because of the child, she secludes herself, she separates herself, she leaves, and she doesn't just go like, you know, stay with a friend or something mechanical See, and she goes as far as she has to, in order to get away from people. And I explained all the motives that were involved, they're in for a job macabre, Elijah, they're in US law. So then while she's there, and she's kind of settling in, and I explained how in another place and sort of what we know, and Allah subhanaw taala tells us
about that place. And Allah tells us, Robert Watson, it was kind of an elevated location, that's a corradino Marine, and it was quite comfortable to stay, a person would feel comfortable staying there, and it had water rising up to the surface of water was accessible. And that's usually a primary thing you have to take into consideration whether or not water is accessible. I know we don't think quite in those terms. Because we live in, you know, in this new modern age, and we live in very, you know, we live in situations or in places that are very advanced technologically, and there's a lot of infrastructure, and we have running water and things like that. But nevertheless,
traditionally speaking, you would have to take that into consideration.
So after she's there, and she's kind of settled in, and she's starting to get comfortable for a job because she starts to feel the child moving inside of her. And some, like I've mentioned that this could also be referring to the contractions, she starts to experience. And it basically compels her to get up and it confuses her, and it makes her nervous. And it makes her very apprehensive. And she goes to the trunk of a date palm, to lean on it to seek support against it. And she says, I wish I would have died before this, because of the higher the modesty that she feels that just because of everything that's going to happen, everything people are going to say, what are they going to talk
about, they're going to talk about our family, they're going to talk about our teacher and our mentor who is a prophet, and they're even going to slander the dean and talk bad about the dean, because this is what these religious people be up to. This is what this religion these religious people be up to welcome to nesea Mansi and she says I would show would have just become forgotten and forgotten, just completely wiped from the memory of people. We now reach the next phase of that. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us tonight number 24 for nada, ha ha then now subsequently what Trent what happens after this, and this is directly dependent on what has happened previously. So
she's feeling so apprehensive. She's starting to feel so nervous, that she's starting to, you know, say things of this nature where I just wish I didn't even exist. So now what's happening is a consequence of that. So right away you see that the mercy of Allah and Allah subhanaw taala is coming to our aid. Remember, I talked about how the predicament of money um, was that typically when a woman is experiencing pregnancy, especially her first pregnancy, that is a time when she needs family when she needs friends. When they when people who love her who cared for her, they surround her. They weighed on her hand and foot they take care of every little need of hers. All right, but
now because of the predicament of money and where she's the vessel for this miracle, she has been called to duty by Allah subhana wa Tada. She has to deprive herself of those normal comforts are those normal luxuries that a pregnant woman would expect that she would want? So that's very troubling. That's very difficult, but like I mentioned that Allah subhanaw taala never leaves like we say in combination
He doesn't leave you hanging. He doesn't leave you out to dry Allah subhanaw taala takes care of you. When you go to bat for the deen when you go to bat for the deen when you step up for the deen that Allah subhanaw taala takes care of you of nobody else is there to take care of you. So now when she's experiencing discomfort now imagine once again, your wife or your daughter or your sister. All right, is going through that first pregnancy of hers
and she starts to feel a little nervous or she starts to feel discomfort. What would you start to do you do whatever it takes, right? Right You do whatever it takes all go to the pharmacy right now. I'll call the doctor right now. I'll rush you to the hospital right now. I'll go get you whatever you you're willing to do whatever whenever However, because you care a lot Spanish she stepped up and was willing to make this unbelievable sacrifice for the sake of the deen. Now Allah subhanaw taala is directly taking care of her. So when she starts to experience discomfort and she starts to get nervous and become a little apprehensive Alice's Fernanda so that fire is then what happened as
a consequence of that. Nada, nada. Step someone called out to her. Someone called out to her. Now there's the following word to know who called out to her who was speaking to her. There's two things here in the next part of the ayah it says min
Min means from from below her from below her now I explained how even in the if so to me noon.
Which to give you the exact reference, I believe is I am number 50. I am number 50 from Sultan momento surah number 23. I am number 50. In their law says that Robert and Robert in so already we know that she was at an elevated location. So if it's meant to that somebody called out to her from below her, it means that it very well could have been an angel. And that is the opinion of the vast majority of the Mufasa rune. The scholars ignore our bias. I'm going to be mamoon Bahar Katara mamula. They all are of the opinion that this was the Moloch this was the angel possibly even Juba de la liga Salaam, and then he is calling out to her and he is basically now giving her instruction
he's giving her good news. He's letting her know how Allah has arranged her to take care of her What else but what arrangements Allah has specially made for her. However, there is one other thing and another narration we find in another variation of the must have we find men
mentality, that the one that called out to her was the one that was below her, the one that was beneath her. So based on that little construction or that possibility, some scholars are of the opinion that this was a Sati Salam speaking to her from her womb.
This was a Zani said I'm speaking to her from her womb. Now we already know that a Saudi saddam we're gonna see it in the IR that are to come I in number 29 specifically, or number 29 and 30 that he saw he said on one of his miracles was that he spoke as a child that he spoke as a child.
So we know that already that he spoke as an infant as a baby. So that's already a miracle in and of itself. Now.
Again, we're dealing we're not talking about what is it that I'm capable of we are talking about who what Ally's capable of as nothing. I mean, yes, exactly. Tom is again, the vessel of the miracle. And that obviously attaches dignity and honor and distinction to the vessel. All right, you don't take gold, you don't take diamonds and put it in a trash bag. Right? You take golden diamonds and you put them in a in a nice little case that's meant for that. So definitely, whatever is contained within a vessel within a container is indicative is representative of the dignity and the honor that that vessel also receives. All right. However, nevertheless, the question here is not what he says
capable of alayhis salam. The question is what is a law capable of and if Alliance capable of Allah is capable of everything finally my duty Yakumo MUGISHA
Kumar lead, Allah can do as as he pleases, whatever he wants, decide what as He wills, there's nobody to question him. There's no limits, there's no boundaries. So ladies fully capable. And already when we see that Allah is making an infant a newborn speak, what's to say that the child from inside the womb of the mother couldn't communicate to the child completely possible implausible? And so that is the opinion of some of the scholars such as Mujahid AlHassan bursary worm bin Muna by many, many great scholars have also taken this position that this is a Zani set up. So already we see that can continuing however, like I said, the vast majority of them will first say
Don't they have gone with the position they feel they say that they feel more comfortable and based on the context of the layout and how all the other good news was getting
And how everything else was handled that this was probably done by the molech by the angel Allahu Allah Allah Musab Allah subhanaw. taala truly knows best. And at the end of the day, there's nothing precluding, there's nothing stopping us from accepting both of these explanations at the same time. That is the versatility that is the miracle of the Quran itself. That is a literary Marvel in the power of the Quran. So Fernanda means. So in this particular ration the narration excuse me this particular recitation, the recitation of Hopson awesome, we say mentality Hmm, all right. So the, she was called out to from beneath her from below her. Alright, so that means that the angel down
from not on the mountain or not on the higher elevation with her, but down there from below her, why is the angel at this distance and from below where he initially approached her, remember I said not just to deliver the miracle, but also as a test. But naturally with Madame and her height, and her modesty and chastity and dignity, she preferred to for him for a stranger, even though it's an angel to be at an arm's length to keep the distance. So that's why the angel is respecting your privacy. And he's staying at a distance. He said, this is an angel of Allah. He's a divine courier.
Right? He's a divine mailman. But nevertheless, look at him respecting the privacy of Medea. And so we learned a lesson in that as well to respect people's private spaces and personal spaces. And doesn't matter who we are, what our purposes are, what the reason is, we should never violate people's personal space, we should never violate people's privacy. And if somebody would like you to stay at a distance, they remain at a distance. That's just a courtesy that they deserve at some but something everyone is entitled to. All right, and there's usually different elements in different cultures. But this is a good example. And this is me going off on a tangent here. All right. All
this is there are there are certain praiseworthy elements in every culture. And this is a good example of that. It's a big part of this American culture, that people really, really appreciate kind of personal space. Whereas sometimes in cultures and other parts of the world, there's very little personal space, I've experienced it firsthand. It's quite interesting. All right, so But nevertheless, this just goes to show you that we should never just wholesale, you know, blanket statement paint with a broad stroke of the brush, any one particular element or culture, there could be good things coming from any different element. And so we've seen here, personal space, the angel
is respecting money of personal space SubhanAllah. He's an angel. He's an angel. But he's respecting Marion's personal space. For now that I'm in taqiyya. So he calls out to her from below her from beneath her from down there from below the elevated space, or the elevated location. And what does he say? Allah? So Allah, what looks like a lion, if you're looking at a Muslim, if you're looking in the Quran, it seems like it's a Hamza. And then there's a law. What that in actuality, what that is, is that there's an unknown, and then there is a law, there's an unknown, and then there's a lot, this is a combination of those two things. And this is done again, in the rest. It's for recitation
purposes. Now that and that is hidden now, in the most often the script that you see now, but it's actually there grammatically speaking that and basically, is an explanation. So what did he call out to her? What did he say to her? What was the gist of his message? So if Syria is going to explain what was said, so it's a clarification that he would didn't just stop by to say, hey, howdy, how's it going? Right? He actually had some message. What did he say? So it's going to explain that what he said, last Zani, Latta, zenni. This is in the forbidding form. It means Don't you dare grieve over your condition. Don't you dare feel sorry for yourself.
Right. Don't feel sorry for yourself. Don't grieve, don't be in sorrow. Don't be sad. None of them. No, no. First of all, don't be sad because you are somebody that is going to literally, literally very literally go on to become a legend.
You're going to go on to become a legend. People will look up to you, people will talk about you. And when Allah subhanahu to Allah, Allah knows how much later on when Allah will reveal his Kalam, his word in most miraculous form, your name will be mentioned in it, your story will be mentioned in it and we're talking about the Quran. So you have no reason to be sad. So first of all, it's motivational. Don't be sad, something amazing is happening. You You're, you're part of something amazing here. And at the same time, she's also being told, don't be sad. Why? Because yes, you're struggling a little bit things are getting a little difficult and a little dicey here. But Allah has
made arrangements Allah has not left you alone the lies with you. Like we see that the very, very powerful way in which Musa alayhis salam, when he told Musa What are we gonna do? We're trapped. He says Kela in Nairobi.
Lord My Rob is with me. My Rob is with me. When we see the Messenger of Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah salatu salam says to Abu Bakar radi Allahu la Zan. Don't be sad. Don't grieve Don't worry why in the lava I know Allah Most definitely is with us. allies with us. So there's no reason why we need to be worried. So similarly your you find that same type of reminder motivation being given to medium.
So don't worry unless taking care of you. Last zenni pata gyla pachala Rob buki data key sorry yeah, most definitely your Lord your Rob has made beneath you below you said he yen setti yen. Now there's a little bit of discussion as well as to what is the meaning of study and because the root of the word refers to somebody being very dignified, very noble in character.
So based on that a minority among some of us alone, a minority among some of us who don't have taken the position or the interpretation that this means, that below you, meaning inside of you,
your Lord has made somebody a very high noble character and conduct however, that is a minority position and their vast majority of Mufasa goon and scholars and there are even some narrations which are traced back to the Prophet system, albeit they are they are explicitly mentioned as being very weak narrations, very weak narrations. Nevertheless, there is there is a group there is a group amongst the scholars of Quran who are of the opinion that when we are interpreting the Quran, we take even a week narration over any type of linguistic extrapolation or linguistic
interpretation that somebody might make. So even a weaker narration from the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, or even the Sahaba is more powerful in terms of being evidence than it is to just simply look at the root of the word look at the language and make an extrapolation. All right. Nevertheless, we also find that even within the Arabic language city, refers to a small stream like like a small river like a stream.
And how do those two things come from the same route? Allah knows best? Allah knows best. All right, I even looked within lexicons Actually, I looked within many, many different lexicons. This is kind of a,
an issue or problem that I have big draw for me. All right. So I looked at many, many different lexicons. And the literally the scholars and these are like the masters of the language, the scholars of the language, these are the people that when the Mufasa known, the classical Mufasa, Luna scholar, classical scholars have to hear when they quote, The root of something, these are the people that they reference. All right, so I looked within even the lexicons that are written and authored by them. And again, they basically said that there is no reason there is no logic, there is no understanding to how the word for small stream like a small stream comes from the root, which
means to be very high and noble and conduct and character, we can find. Nevertheless, the Arabs have used this word and this is what it meant when they used it. And what I often explain to students in these type of scenarios or cases is, this is a very, very good reminder, at the end of the day, we we get spoiled as as native speakers of a non Arabic language, particularly one like English, one that is so fabulously random as English language. When we start becoming students of the Arabic language, it actually spoils us, because there's so much structure to the Arabic language, that sometimes it can kind of start to spoil you, you think everything's got a route and everything
systematic and everything fits perfectly. This is a very good reminder of the fact that yes, Arabic probably is the most structured language. Nevertheless, it's still a language and languages are based on people and people are random. So languages will always be a little random and that's as best I can phrase it. So set er refers to a small stream here.
And plus there's chronic evidence to corroborate the meaning of it being a stream, remember again, tsunami noon, so number 23 is number 50. I told you, Allah subhanaw taala says ihlara buatan that that the Quran wa enon and marine refers to water that rises to the surface water that rises to the surface. So there's another I have the Puranas already telling us that was a place where water was accessible, so obviously city and mainstream so now she's being told called the john buki, Dr. Keyes area that your Lord has literally right underneath you right at your feet. Just a little bit down right there very accessibly. Allah has placed the stream, Allah has made a stream for you. And the
fact that the angel is saying, Rob buki your Lord has made, it opens the door to the slight possibility because you're not saying there's a stream already there. And even if there was a stream already there, your Lord is the one who made it. But the fact that he's phrasing it in this way, it could possibly also refer to the MOCA signal. It could also refer to the fact that all of a sudden when mme was going through that panic and then difficulty
Boom, a string just kind of erupted from the ground and started flowing immediately. And once again, we know that there's another very similar incident in the stories of the prophets are similar to that and that is the story of the well of Zamzam. The Well of Zamzam and how the well of Zamzam came into existence as a miracle to come to the aid of the family of the prophets. All right, so similarly here, there's nothing counting out the possibility that when she was in that panic mode, then at that time, at that point, literally, a string just erupted from the ground and started flowing immediately. And Allah subhanaw taala is completely capable of doing so of course, but the
john IRA buki data key sorry, yeah.
Now one thing here,
I explained how she's being told, don't be sad, because you are the vessel of a miracle, you are the literally, you are going to go on to become a legend, people will look up to you, people will talk about you, you're a part of something very, very special here. There's no reason for you to feel sorry for yourself. Number two, if you're finding a little bit of difficulty, then again, don't feel bad for yourself. Don't feel sorry that why did I leave home, maybe it would have been okay to deal with all the, you know, the social pressure that I would have had to deal with. And I should have went ahead and put up with that. Because now I don't even have anything here. There's no facility.
There's no facilities here or anything. No, no, Allah taking care of everything. Here you go, here's the stream, here's it's all taken care of. And then the subsequent is we're also going to see him a lot provides food for her as well. There's another understanding of this as well, that don't feel bad, don't feel sorry, also, because she's in this very, very faraway place. And literally where if we take that understanding that that stream wasn't there literally erupted at that time, and at that point right then and there, then that's not only assigned to her, that you are still in the good graces of Allah, you are still in the good graces of a love but just perchance somebody else was to
pass through here somebody else was to come by here. And they were to see that MoneyGram is here, they would see a randomly a stream flowing and she's taken care of, and this food is being miraculous, he provided her even those people would be baffled, and those people will be forced to admin haven't seen this, that there has to be something special about this young lady about this young woman. There's something remarkable at play here. There's something remarkable going on here. So pachala buki tataki. Surya, in the next day, I am number 25. Now the water is provided the water is there, and it's ready and it's available. Now the food, Allah says, well, who's z? Well, who's z,
this is in command form again, BC Latin amor, this is in command form again, and whose has a Yahoo Zoo literally means to shake something. But as a specific connotation, it means to shake something that is really big, that is very heavy. And when you shake because it's so big and heavy, you literally can't shake it like, and I don't want to because I got water on the table here. But like, I could just shake this table around like this. For easy, very simple, slight little movement of the hand. I'm just shaking it right now. All right. All right. So you can shake it very easily. But if something's big and heavy.
And so again, just kind of walk up to it, just grab it with your hand and shake it. Then when you want to try to shake something big and heavy, what do you have to kind of do? You have to literally like, throw yourself at it right? You have to like literally take a few steps back and run into it and hope that it will move a little bit. Right, you got to try to drop kick it or something, you have to do something, you have to take extreme measures to try to move this thing right here. All right. So that's what the word literally means. All right, so well, who's z. So literally, she's being told you got to shake. And the word itself already implies that you're gonna have to shake
something really heavy, really big. Something that is going to be it's going to seem very, very difficult to get any type of a movement going there by shaking it. So what is it a Lakey shake towards yourself, shake towards yourself. So that either means that in the sense of like pull it towards yourself. Or it could also mean that when you shake this, it's actually in your own benefit. You're doing it for your own good, because right away when she's being told to shade something that she's thinking, Okay, I'm pregnant, and I'm hungry, and I'm worried and I'm nervous and I'm being being told to shake something very heavy. like okay, something's not adding up here. The math
doesn't add up.
Alright, so now she's been told no, no, this is for you. This is this is for your own benefit. What is she being told to shake be did they nephila the trunk of the date pump?
All right, the trunk of a date pump. So a young woman who is pregnant, who is worried who is nervous, who is hungry, who is very emotionally traumatized, is being told to shake a date palm grabbed by the trunk and shake away.
Now, we're not out of our bounds. First of all, there's a there's there's one thing, some scholars again in the tafazzin, they mentioned that this is, you know, we see that having exhibiting what we would call superhuman strength, exhibiting what we would call superhuman strength, is again very well possible right?
Could be a miracle that is occurring here. So maybe she did shake it in, she was shaking. I mean, just imagine that scene that at that time, imagine that seeing this young woman walking up to this date palm grabbing her by her hands and shaking like this Subhanallah
I'd be mesmerizing. Imagine just seeing that you'd be like, Whoa, what's going on? Right, that's, that'd be amazing. I've never seen anything like that before. So that's one possibility. The other possibility, and this is the one that the majority of them have assumed they turn to.
Because there's such a deep, profound lesson here. And that is she wasn't able to get get any movement out of it. She really couldn't. You know, like we say she couldn't even make a dent.
She couldn't even make a dent. Nothing happens. Nothing's happening. All right. But at the same time, then why is why is she being commanded to do this? Why is she being told to shake the tree? First of all, let's complete the eye and see what happens. Why should you go and check the treat to socket to socket. Alright, so this means for something to fall. But it's in a specific verb pattern, a specific verb form. That is, first of all, it's in the present slash future tense form.
It's in the present size, future tense form, which already means that it will drop okay, because it will happen. You do this and that will happen.
The second thing is this specific verb pattern that it comes from, it can carry the implication of something happening repeatedly. something happening repeatedly that when you shake it, it will won't just fall once it'll continue to fall. It will repeatedly fall, what will fall I lay key upon you.
routan. Now Ruth up in the Arabic language refers to dates, but it specifically refers to dates that are very fresh, not dried dates, but fresh dates.
Jenny yen, Jenny, Jenny, and means they are ripe, they're ready to be plucked.
So they're not at the point where you're prematurely removing them from the tree. They're also not at the point where they've already fallen on their own, and then they fall on the ground. And then they get a little, they're not so great quality anymore. But they're just right there. Right there. And I don't know if I mean, again, I'm a suburban kid. So I haven't like had a lot of experience. But when I did travel around with I didn't visit different places, I got the experience to be able to do this. Right. So when is that season when the fruits are very ripe and sitting on up on the tree. Even if you can't climb up the tree, it's a really big tree, you get a nice little rock and
you toss it up there. All right, you take your shoe and you toss it up there and Mashallah, this falls from the sky. All right, and then your shoe hits you in your face, right? But it's okay, you got some fresh fruit. It's all good. Okay, so it's worth the trouble so that that's the type of ripeness I'm talking about. We're just a little shake, just throw something up in the tree and it'll start to fall. So Jenny, yeah, that's what it refers to. So Ruth and Jenny, get that very, very fresh, ripe, ready to be plucked, ready to fall dates will literally fall on you repeatedly, repetitively, they'll continue to fall, you'll have a steady stream of them coming down. So who
Tanzanian Alright, now I wanted to explain a little bit of what's going on here.
first of all, I explained how maybe this was a part of the miracle, that she's exhibiting superhuman strength, and she's shaking the tree, even though that's beyond her capacity. But at the same time majority of them have us they don't say no, she wasn't able to, and she realized she wouldn't be able to, but this is a command from Allah go and shake the tree. And there could be many many different reasons for this. The one primary reason is this.
This is a lost power Tada. commanding medium, educating medium and through the example of medium educating all of us that you do have to take the means there is always a means to an end. All right, yes, Allah subhanaw taala is capable of giving without the means. We're seeing that in the case of a sonic etc.
But nevertheless, even though the complete means are not there are at least partial means there. The mother is still there. He's still being born through a mother. So you don't have the complete means. But you do have a partial means. Same way here. And also maybe because such a miracle of the birth of a child isn't happening last winter is still reminding her and reminding us in her story, that don't assume this to be the natural mode of how things will happen. Things will always happen without the means. You have to assume the means. You have to assume the means and assuming the means is the command of a law. It is the natural order and it's a Sunnah of the prophet alayhi wa sallam.
It's as soon as our profits on the lohani some he taught us to assume to means to take the means to utilize the means. All right, and
This is a reminder in that regard that you need to utilize a means you need to assume the means. All right, and even if that be to the level of just trying to shake a tree, again, it's not the complete mean, she didn't tell her to climb up there and pick fruits for herself. It's not the complete means it's a partial means, even in a little bit. At some level, it is some type of an effort being exerted. And so that's what it's pointing out here that is the relevance of it, that you need to assume the means and that is something that is a part of the natural order, and that is a hokum of Allah, and we also need to be very conscious of that we should never become so
you know, so far gone.
In what we might perceive to be reliance upon Allah
to the point where we start feeling that we are above and beyond the means never never.
We should never Oh my god, a loved one who he reprimanded people who behaved such he be reprimanded people who behave in this manner, he said, this is wrong. This is not to work with this is a contradiction of the liquid tawakkol is to assume that means the famous Hadith of the Prophet and he tells him tie your camel and then put your trust in Allah.
Tie your camel and then put your trust in Allah. There's a hadith a beautiful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. I don't remember the Arabic texts of the Hadith, completely off top of my head, and I don't want to misquote but the Translate and I'll bring that for everyone's benefit inshallah tomorrow, but it goes to the effect of where the prophets Allah, He said him says that he actually he he congratulates, he congratulates, he praises, the one who works very hard and then puts his trust in Allah. And he said, he condemns, he condemns the one who just sits back folds his hands doesn't do anything and says, I put my trust in a lot of processes. I condemn that individual.
That guy is lazy.
He has no trust in Allah, he's lazy. He's using the trust of a law, this reliance and allow his trust in the law as an excuse for his laziness. He's masking his laziness and religious in religion, and religiousness. So that's why that is not praiseworthy at all. And so we find that emphasis upon taking the means being expressed here in the sutra, when medium, or the long line has been told to shake the tree, even though it's beyond our capacity, but just do it. Assume to means take the means. The second thing here is
and if we get more specific within trying to get to an end through a means, specifically, why is she being told to shake the tree to get what to receive what food, food risk, sustenance provision to provide? All right, this is another thing, that through the example of money, I'm somebody that should not be working somebody that should not be me being someone who should not be made to work in this particular condition. Nevertheless, unless content very minimally, is putting her to work in order to get that food again, so that it becomes praiseworthy that when you Yes, Allah is the one who feeds allies, the one who sustains Allah is the one who takes care of you and your family. But
as a father, as a husband, when you are responsible to take care of someone to feed someone, to provide to sup for someone, then at that time going out and working hard to bring, like we say, to put bread on the table, to bring food home for the family. There's nothing that is lesser about that that is extremely praiseworthy, and again sometimes in in religious literally what could be called religious extremism. When we become very extreme in our in our Deen when we go beyond the limits of the deen and there is that possibility Yeah, come on Hulu 15 the process and don't ever become extreme in your deen we do find again that elements were like man, you know and people will often
come up to people who might you know serve the dean full time like the moms and things like that. So I've heard plenty of this type of talk from people like all make dua you know, we're out there chasing the dunya and I slave away eight to five, you know, just doing Yeah, working for the world. No, no, no, Brother, you if you're working permissibly you're doing something that is permissible and bringing good halaal income home to your family. You're doing a great, amazing thing. That's a remarkable task and a remarkable duty to never belittle that. Don't ever think lesser of yourself because you do that. Hold yourself to a higher standard where you make sure that you implement salah
and dhikr of Allah and those types of things within your work. Try to conduct yourself as morally and as ethically as possible, but never looked down on what you do guess will hilarity for either to battle for it. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells us that after the initial obligations like praying five times a day, after those obligations, the next obligation is to go out there and to earn a living to earn a Hello living a permissible living. That is an obligation. That's something very admirable, very praiseworthy about that. And so we shouldn't get caught in this trap. Oh, I'm slaving away after the dunya No, no, no, no. You're providing for your family. And if you're doing
morally and ethically and to stand up in an upright fashion. All right, and you're maintaining your deen the ethics of your deen while you do it, Mashallah, you're doing an amazing job, that's very bad that that's a form of worship, you have nothing. And at the same time, we should not create this culture where people are made to feel guilty because they're at work. That's a good thing. Good, hard working people, the process of them used to seek take refuge seek refuge with a lot on a daily basis from being lazy, from being lazy and cowardly. So that's if somebody who's hard working is willing to put them put himself out there to provide for his family, there's we we should tip our
hat to people like that. So we see money and being told here, you got to work to get the food. And of course, because of mediums condition, in the miraculous scenario, here, of course, it's very little work is just kind of just go and touch that tree.
Just go and just kind of try to move that tree just a little bit. Right, and Allah subhanaw taala will take care of the rest. But you see that element of work coming through, there's yet another reflection here.
Does it logically make sense for a young woman who is pregnant to be told him to go and shake a big old tree? Does that logically Make sense? No, it doesn't. But we know from the story, we don't even have to be told here explicitly. We know from the story, did my dm go and shake the tree? Yes, she did.
And so this is also the another reflection here that you you when the last panel I tell I commend you to do something. And that's not to say that our Deen is irrational or illogical. None other than that's not what I'm saying. But occasionally, sometimes in some matters of the Dean of the religion, you might not be able to completely logically process exactly why you're being told to do something like this. Maybe it's not making sense to you. The test of the person at that time is to still do what still do it is not making sense to me right now. I'm being told to fasten Ramadan.
And Ramadan is in August or July.
And it logically is not making sense to me. Medically, it's not making sense to me scientifically. That's to say it's not making sense to me. But if that's what my rock, that's what Allah has told me to do, I'm going to go ahead and do it. I'm going to try my best to do it was muddy, I'm actually physically able to shake the tree majority of the mufa sooner say no.
But she still put forth your best efforts. Yeah, at least did what Allah told her to do. She was not obligated by the means. And what did what do we see happening here? something miraculous and amazing happens. She's literally just what is the equivalent of touching the tree, a young pregnant woman? How much effort is she going to be able to exert? She probably just went over there, what would comparatively be to what somebody else could have done, literally just kind of touched a tree, and you got fruits falling, and then they steadily continued to fall.
something miraculous happens when you do what Allah tells you to do. So in very simple terms, when you listen to a lot, when you do what Allah tells you to do, he'll take care of you.
We first have got to listen, we got to learn to do. All right. And then the last and the final reflection here.
And this is very, very beautiful.
Obviously Allah subhanho wa Taala. There's there's distinction. There's honor for Medea midis, as well. Allah subhanaw taala is completely capable of making the fruit fall regardless. And we talked about why he's telling her to shake the tree and go over to the tree and shake it and whatnot. But at the same time, you know how like, it's kind of like being waited on hand and foot
being waited on hand and foot. All right. So when somebody's being waited on hand and foot, most people probably haven't experienced this. All right. But at the same time, just think about it. Maybe you've seen it, maybe you know, you can picture it in your head. Think about this, imagine that. You're being waited on hand and food, you have a little bell and you have a servant.
And you pick up the bell and you ring the bell, and the servant rushes over to you with food and water. Here you go. So that you can kind of express your need when you feel like it how you feel like the meaning runs. Yes, here you go.
So my dm is being told the way you ring the bell is just go over there and touch the tree fudo fall
it's a little bell.
Allah saying my Hulk must lose my creation is at your service medium.
When you get hungry, just go touch the tree, the tree will deliver food.
Well, who's z Lake ubG that inequality to sakata Hideki Robin Gianni, and this will continue to happen. And so this is especially where that repetitive
implicit repetitiveness that is built into the four verb form here that I told you about that the verb naturally implies that this happened repeatedly. This is where it becomes very, very, it's kind of like an evidence for that. That anytime you feel like you didn't just go touch the tree. Boom. fudo fall you feel like it again, a couple of just go touch the tree again. That's it.
All right. And I want to make a joke, but I know this is not going to be good for me. All right. She is pregnant, so she probably had to test the tree quite often. All right, whenever the less All right, let's go. Nobody found that funny. Wow.
I'm dead. Alright. Number 26 I had number 26 change the topic very quickly. focally What should I be? Macari? sakuni. Wasabi. Macari. All right. So then she's being told what eat
coolly eat. Like, and when you're told to eat it means like what we would say, eat as much as you want eat however you want, whenever you'd want.
That that's it.
Eat as much as you would like, whenever you like however you like. focally What should I be and drink freely eat and drink freely?
Well, currently I in recovery Island and make your eyes Cool. Cool your eyes. Alright. And now what does that mean? Cool your eyes, right? So it's a figure of speech. It's a figure of speech. It's an expression in classical Arabic. It basically means to find comfort, to find solace to find peace and tranquility in something to be comforted by something.
Now, it could have the very general meaning of eat and drink as much as you would like him to sit back, relax, enjoy yourself.
And just kind of cherish the moment enjoy live in the moment, relax, sub worrying sub threading, stop being so nervous. As you're enjoying, relax, enjoy yourself. But then when we look within the neuron, when we look within the neuron, this expression of cooling the eyes, coolness of the eyes, this is always used when talking about children. This is used when talking about children put around to ideally will act like the wife of her own said when she found baby Moosa What did she say to fit on to finally wellock coolness of my eyes in your eyes and for you. Right? And then in the ayah about in the end of sort of tufan when Allah teaches us that beautiful supplication to make far not
far just for ourselves, but for our families. happyland administrar Gina with reality na kurata are you so make our spouses and our children to coolness of the eyes. So that coolness of the eyes of expression is specifically you find we find a very strong relationship in this word connected to children.
Because children are that thing that can bring so much fulfillment so much satisfaction, so much peace and comfort to a person so much happiness to a person's life. And I talked about this previous is where you could be having the worst day in the world. And you walk through the door and you see your child and what everything's done. Everything's gone. Your child smiles at you and finished.
I mean today I mean the student I hope they didn't see I was really beat in class today all day today. I almost literally dozed off for a little while there while y'all were doing exercises. All right, got you busy, took a stolen little nap. Right? I was completely beat I was just done. And I had the intention from before I had told I told the the administrators before three o'clock as soon as classes I'm gonna jet I'm gonna get out of here. I need to go and rest them. I'm exhausted. And three o'clock happened. And my kids came running through the door. Because they were visiting, they came running out boo. Party time. All right, and they wanted to run around. And for some reason,
they're fascinated with this member, Jackson Pollock hair, Carrollton community, right. So they're fascinated with the member. So then they want to climb up and climb down and climb up and climb down and play peekaboo from behind it. And I stayed here for 30 minutes running around the budget playing with them. I wasn't exhausted anymore. That's the effect of children that coolness of the eyes. So Allah when Allah says we'll cut the iron, and make your eyes cool, make the ice cool, I gained coolness of the eyes, find peace and comfort and tranquility. It doesn't just generally could also generally mean it but it specifically means what? Eat, drink, relax, enjoy yourself. Because very
soon you're going to be receiving a child. And all the trouble that you've gone through all the difficulty you've experienced, all the adversity that you have endured, is about to go away. Because when you hold that that innocent baby, that child, that beautiful baby in your arms when you hold them, that's it, everything will be forgotten. Everything will be forgotten. And we see that whenever a woman gives birth to a child, how much difficulty does she go through she goes through nine months of difficulty and then the the actual labor and delivery of the child, how much difficulty that she goes through.
But then when the child is brought here and handed to her,
She I mean nothing, nothing matters anymore. That child is everything. So much peace and comfort comes from the child. So she's being told about Coney Island. You're about to get to your eyes.
or about to be cooled, you're about to receive the most sweetest blessing of Allah, you're about to hold your child for in Matera in nominal battery I had
for him and if there are, you know, if you are if you see terina if you see, and this emphasis the noon there at the end is for emphasis, and what the emphasis implies that if you see at all,
if at all you see mean especially from people from human beings are higher than any one person.
All right, so, that stress is being removed from her, I want you to eat, I want you to drink, I want you to relax, I want you to enjoy yourself now, because you're about to receive the sweetest blessing you've ever gotten in your entire life.
And if you any human being approaches you right now you see any human being and they're obviously curious, like what's going on? Oh, you're about to have a child? What's the explanation? This How did this happen? How did that happen? What what what what how, when, where? What if that starts to happen? Then what is she told for Cooley? Then you say in Nina Dr. Li Rahmani Soman, most definitely I have made a commitment. Number two, I have made a commitment, literal money for a rush man. And we see again here previously, when medium and this shows you the amount of medium. This is representative of the amount of money of when mme when she when that man knows that young handsome
man approached her when she was secluded in the place of worship. And the man approached her and she took refuge with Allah. She didn't say in the outro to be laggy. She said India will do better on money. She invoked the attribute of a lot of witches that are among the abundant, the Merciful. Here again, she's being told to say in need to live money, I made a commitment to our man. This shows you the amount of money of that even though she's going through all of this everything she's experienced her view, her perception, her feeling in regards to a law, she can't help but appreciate all the blessings of aligner life, how merciful Allah is even in this condition, she sees the mercy of Allah
subhanaw taala. And she learns to appreciate the mercy of Allah, we need to find that same type of spiritual condition, that same level of human that same perspective, that we constantly need to be able to see and appreciate the mercy of aligner lives in order to live our money so much. So I have made a commitment for a rock man, what commitment Have I made so much? A fast now the word so here, again, in the opinion of the majority of the mufa, Ceylon
sohm here could be used in a meeting that we understand it, where you abstain from food and drink. But then there'll be a problem previously, what was she told focally What should I be eating drink. So that's why the majority of the scholars of the year they tell us that here the word Psalm is being used in its literal lexical linguistic meaning, and the word the root of the word sown. The origin of the word it means to abstain from anything. It is only in the Islamic terminology and fic terminology, legal Islamic legal terminology that it means to abstain from food and drink and in don't like physical relations with one spouse from this time to that time. But generally speaking,
it just means to abstain from anything for any duration of time. So in the intellectual era, many so much I made a commitment to abstain What am I abstaining from Fallon so the five years for an explanation What am I abstaining from felon who can Lima felon who can Lima Alright, so therefore, that I have made the commitment that I will not speak my commitment, my promise to abstain is that I will not speak Aloma today in Seguin to any single human being
in C is, we know insaan unus. These might be singular words, but they represent plural big meanings, in see literally means one of those inside one of those nets, one human being. So I will not speak to any one human being. So she was literally told to make this vow of silence, not speak to any and why is it being specified as human being because who's still communicating with her, the angels, the angels are still communicating with her. So you find very specific language. So then I will not speak to any human being at all in any capacity.
All right, and why? So why is this type of an oath? Why is this type of a commitment being made to not speak to any human being? Again, a couple of very basic benefits. First of all, she's dealing with a very unique situation, some very unique circumstances. I mean, historically speaking, nobody's ever been in this position before. And whenever you're in a very, very new position predicament it's very difficult to come up with an explanation right? How do I explain this to people? So when you don't exactly know what to say, what's the better policy is remain quiet. I don't know. Just remain
Quiet. That's the first thing. The second thing is also the people that are probably going to come up and start questioning you and objecting to you are not doing it with the best of intentions. They're doing it to argue to debate to belittle you to slander you. Is there any benefit in talking to such people way that caught the Bahamas, je Luna calu. Salam and peace out.
Right? When you talk to when ignorant people come to talk to you Peace out.
I'll talk to you later. I got nothing to say to you. So she's being told, stay quiet. What's the point of getting into an argument with people like this, if I'm a chef or Abraham Ola, he says every time I debated with an ignorant person I lost
because you can't beat ignorance. Because ignorance is ignorance. So you present a proof and he says so.
And then there's only one of two things you can do either walk away or break his face, there's only one or two things you want to do at that time. So of course, you don't want to harm another human being so you walk away. All right. So that's what she's been told this quiet, vow of silence is better than having to talk to these, these these, these people who have no thought process these people that are ignorant, these people that will just want to degrade you and slander you, you're bad people don't talk to the no good. And then the other thing is, you don't know how to explain it, you can't find the right words to explain it better to be silent. And the last and the final
reflection here. And we see that like I referenced you before there, too. There is number 29 and 30. So just a couple of IR down, we see that alas saying You be quiet, why we will take care of everything. We will speak on your behalf, we'll provide an explanation that will blow people's minds and tomorrow's does, it'll probably come up in tomorrow's lesson. When we get there. We'll see what a mind blowing respond to last panel with other arrange for those people to shut those people up literally speaking, to make them quiet, to make them keep their ignorance and their slander to themselves. The last And the final thing I wanted to comment on here is that medium is making this
vow of silence. So there is a discussion amongst the scholars, whether this is some legitimate form of worship, that should be practiced that is to be practiced or not, then though it is not. This is something that was very specific to the situation of millennium, Allah, this is coming through the command of Allah. Alright, so it's a specific command. This is cos This is specific to Medea. But this is not some type of a general form of worship that is meant to be observed. And we even find specific narration there's a hadith and wathba in the Morphe my Malik Rahim Allah, there's a hadith and abuse Allahu alayhi wa sallam rah rah rah julienne Chi, Eman fish shrimps. He saw a man standing
out in the middle of the Sun like standing out there in the middle, under sunlight for call Mr. Bhalla, Madhava the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said What's wrong with him? What's going on with this guy? So the Sahaba responded by saying Nether alligator kalama wa de la mina shamcey while I get Lee so we assume that he has made an oath that He will not speak to anyone that he will not seek shade from the sun that he will not sit and that he will continue to fast in this condition. The profits a lot of them said Moodle who go and tell him command him make him do this funny it's a column he should start talking to people waste when the esta lilla and you should go into some shade you
shouldn't stand out there in the sun. While he edgeless he should sit down What do you think Musoma? Who? But he should continue to complete his fast what do you what do you Dima suyama who he should continue his fast. So the fastest legitimate everything else is a legitimate not talking to people standing out there in the sun. And you know, not sitting down. All of that makes no sense. It's not a form of worship, tell him to go. There's another narration where the prophets who loves him saw a man who was standing up and what kind of tied himself up to something and then process him said what's going on said I made a note that I will stand as a form of worship and a bother to Allah. The
Prophet ism says that Allah does not want a lead does not like seeing his slaves punish themselves. This is ridiculous. Untie yourself and sit down Get some rest is not a form of worship. All right. And we even see Abu Bakar the Allahu Donna on who he saw a woman who would not speak to people he was told about a woman that just hadn't spoken to people in a long time. And somebody came and told her about her situation. And he said what happened and they told her that they told him that she's made this oath, that she's not going to talk to people, the Abu Bakar the laquan who said in Islamic Jihad or the hottie Maha Maha, the first protocol me that most definitely Islam has destroyed on any
of these type of practices. But second, let me tell her to go Speak. Speak now you should talk. Alright, so this is not some form of worship that is to be observed. This is a very, very special situation, specific circumstances and a very special command given exclusively to medium. We'll go ahead and stop here and it's time for Sultan he will continue from number 27 tomorrow. May Allah give us all the ability to practice everything that was said and heard. Some kind of like he will be hungry. He swannack alone.
