welcome back now
held to his Sumin whom in a heading out Esmeralda homelake
Alhamdulillah horrible Allah meanwhile aka to them with subpoena was Salatu was Salam O Allah say in the mousseline, where Allah Allah he was actually our mentor, we are gonna be sending Elijah Medina.
In yesterday's session
we talked about, we're actually even going further back. It's been talking about the people who eventually made their decision and made their bed. And it basically said that now that they've made their bed, they have to lie in it. And it talks about almajiri mean, they've convicted criminals and decide of a law in the court of a law. And it talks about what was their primary crime what was the greatest of their crimes we'll call it other than the fact that they said that Allah has taken a child. And it First of all, before even beginning this dialogue or this discussion, Allah subhanaw taala first completely removed any type of a
any type of a thought or delusions that they might have about, you know, intercession or recommendations or somebody being able to get them out of trouble having some type of a special hookup on the Day of Judgment. It's a lie. I'm licona, Shiva eliminated during the Romani.
And after that, our last panel, Rotella says, we'll call it aka the ramen wallet. And they said that a man has taken a child like a dJ dJ and eat a lot of dresses and directly and says you've said something that is so wildly inappropriate, that the card is somehow forgotten. I mean, who that the skies are very close to, they want to literally rip apart and rain down fire and stones upon you What dunshaughlin do and the earth wants to split open and swallow you all with the hydrology Ballu had that and the mountains want to come crashing down and literally fall down on top of you and crush all of you. And I will live right money well hidden, because they are so appalled at the fact
that these people would call out for a ramen a child that they would claim that there was a child for our ramen. Well miembros de la rock money and you're talking to one another, and it is completely inappropriate is completely unfitting it is completely unwarranted to even suggest the fact that our man would have a child
in collusion, FISA mawashi will have the latter Rahmani Ibadan, Allah says that each and every single person in the heavens and the earth will have to eventually come to a Roman army than in servitude and in slavery before a law humbled before a law, realizing that they are the property and the slaves of a law law saw him. Allah has fully taken them all into account. They've all been listed on a roster, they've all been lined up, they've all been accounted for. Well, I know whom I'd done. Not only that, but each and every single one of the breaths that they've taken every word that they've spoken, every action that they've done, everything is fully accounted for, well, according
to whom it has to multi Amati for them, and each and every single one of them will come on the Day of Judgment individually, alone, and by themselves and will have to fend for themselves and will have to defend themselves and try to answer for why they did what they did.
After stating this in such very captivating, very powerful in such a captivating and powerful manner. Allah subhanaw taala ends the sutra by talking about the people who will be protected from the horrors of the Day of Judgment, the people who will be protected from these predicaments and these difficulties in this situation. And a lot of what Allah mentions him by saying in alladhina, amanu amilo solace
in the Medina amanu army lasagna had the most definitely those people.
Most definitely those who those people are the ones who am I know who first of all believed.
And then they further strengthen their belief. Well, I mean, no solid and they did good deeds. So it didn't they didn't just claim to believe. They didn't just say we're believers. They didn't just say I'm enough, but then they backed it up, and they did good righteous deeds and actions. amilo solly had
And so first of all, it's letting us know that this protection from Allah, because remember earlier that I just mentioned in the recap and I number 87, Allah dispelled this notion of some, you know, magical or some very romanticized notion of intercession, that's a magical superhero with a cape on is gonna come floating down. And all of a sudden, he's going to say, let them go something like, No, no, no, no, no, you need to let go of these types of notions. There's no reality to something like that. There will be people who will be protected, there will be people that will be in the good graces of a law. But there'll be people who believed
they believed, and that's the first thing we have to realize it's human, human is the root human is the basis human is the foundation. And these people had that conviction, they had that emotion.
And then they strengthen, they backed up, they reaffirm, they were convinced of their emotion, through huami lusardi had, and they did good righteous deeds. They did good actions and good deeds. And that is the that is the backing up of the claim that I have believed. You know, for us, there's a very practical realization of that. And that's what's basically stated, and not just somebody This is alluded to, but many of the scholars have always stated this, that for us the prayer the five times daily prayer, the Salah, is that is faith manifest.
Salah is faith manifest, it's easy to say I'm a believer, I believe. But then when I take a break from whatever's going on in my day, five times a day, and I stand up before a line I pray and I offer my salon. Now that is faith. That is real faith. That's faith manifest. It's practical, it's real, it's tangible. It shows I'm living it, not just claiming it but living it and that's exactly what it mentions here. Well, I mean, oh, sorry, how they did good. Now
and so the first thing I wanted to say was that the promise of Allah is upon a man and I'm going to Sonia,
Eamonn, and I'ma loose Allah, the promises of Allah laid upon this foundation. And this is stated all throughout the Quran in alladhina amanu when Latina Armando Armando solea hace una iqos, herbal jannetty comfier kalido they are the people who will be the companions of Paradise, and there'll be there in for all of eternity will not have a legal meaning because Allah can non GMO meaning Allah is the Wali of the believers Allah will see Allah says similarly in that manner, that is how we save we rescue we salvage the believers. So the promise of Allah is based upon a human and Amazonia and of course, one of the combinations of this topic and this discussion is suited to the answer. And so
total asset that's exactly what is stated that all of humanity's in ruin and loss except for the people of humanity. That's the primary foundation. And that's exactly what's being stated here. However, one little nuance of chronic
at the same time when it mentions the good actions when it mentions doing good deeds, and mentions a song he had a solid had. Now that is an adjective that's an adjective, the noun for the adjective demo Zoo for the sofa. This is a sofa, and it's more sofas Maloof. We saw this early in the episode they had here we see it again. So it's really the most sofas
Well, I mean, Oh Allah Allah saw he had
so the most of his Malou here, and that is done again. I mentioned that previously it's done to literally let them or SUV be an embodiment of the cipher. Let the noun become an embodiment, let the noun be completely identified through its adjective. So when you say nice house versus we just pointed out a man, that is nice, that's baller.
So now you're identifying that house as a symbol and as a standard of what it means to be baller. So similarly, when the mo SUV when the noun is omitted, then you're basically turning that noun into the standard of that adjective, it becomes a standard for that adjective. So these actions are the standard of what is good, what is solid, what is righteous. So that's the first thing. The second thing is when we do realize that the most oof is omitted, it's not mentioned. Then at that point in time, we do actually go back and refer back to what would have been the most oof if it was mentioned what would have been the noun if it would have been mentioned, and the noun the most of the
described noun would have been allowed.
Now as the students the Arabic students know that that's a broken plural.
As a general Marchesa Jamal taxied and whenever you have a safer for a general mucus or broken plural, the adjective for the broken plural is singular, feminine,
singular, feminine. All right.
So that would have been a man, a saleha. With the Tamara booth at the end, the round at the end. But here you have the feminine plural stated here. And the feminine plural is Jaya, is it is permissible. So if you look that up in a book of grammar, you would find that Killa Houma get us on, he left us on both a bottle a bottle Dame both variations are permissible in grammar, you could do one or the other.
And they're chosen, the different ones are chosen for different purpose for a different reason to emphasize something different. And when in Arabic, classical Arabic When you bring the plural feminine adjective, that's actually done very interestingly, the norm is to use the singular feminine. But the abnormal form, which is permissible, but it's abnormal is to bring the plural feminine. And as I've been explaining to the, to the summer students, that whenever you do something abnormal in grammar, that immediately puts a red flag.
That's a red flag, whenever something abnormal happens, that's a red flag. I gave him the example that's like somebody walking into the machine with a coupon. All right, we would all look okay, I would stop talking for a couple of seconds, and get very, very worried about everybody safety. All right. So red flags, abnormality are red flags, they catch your attention. So similarly, when you do something abnormal, the norm in Arabic, broken plural, singular, feminine adjective done. But you can use the feminine plural feminine. But when you do that, it's abnormal. And if it's abnormal, it's a red flag and it's catching your attention is trying to make a point to you. And the point
that's being made here, when you read in books of Allah, when you read in books of grammar, the point that's being made here is that it actually is saying that it's very, very few, it is plural, but it's very few in number.
It's very few and number, it doesn't take a whole lot. It's kind of like in parentheses or between the lines, you put a little note, or you put a little footnote and on the bottom row, it doesn't take a whole lot. That's a little bit.
And that's basically what it's saying that the people who believe, and then make an effort to do good. And even if they don't end up accomplishing a lot of good, as long as they tried the best that they could. They didn't accomplish a whole lot. That's okay. Sometimes you will, sometimes you won't.
But nevertheless, you they tried their best. And maybe they only accomplished very little. But that's all it takes. That's all it takes. So just trying your best. So that's the foundations laid in the lead in Armando amilo solly hired the people who believed and then tried to do their best and did a few good deeds along the way, did a few good deeds along the way and in the course of their efforts. Allah says for such people say ajala man would done very soon a rush man will make for them.
Very soon a man will reserve for them would then love. unconditional love. unparalleled love would. From the end, this is the same word from where the attribute of Allah dude comes from. The one that unconditionally
loves the one whose love cannot be matched by anyone or anything. That is what Dude, that is who a lot is. And so say get your man. So people who believe and then try to do their best and do a few good deeds along the way. They make their best effort possible. A lot will very soon make for them reserved for them. Unconditional, unparalleled love. Now notice I'm not designating where will this love come from? Who will Allah put this love in the heart of because it's not specified in the ayah either. So yeah, john Romano would then it's in the common form the next raw form, so it's not too open ended.
That means that Allah will love them unconditionally and unparalleled. They will first and foremost Most importantly, above and beyond anything else, they will receive the love of Allah.
Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is being told this in the beginning of when his darwyn, public fourth or fifth year of prophethood.
And he's being told, stick to what you're doing. You'll receive love, like not like love like no one has ever seen before. And we see the eventual manifestation of that. And we're right around those same dates in the Hijri calendar in the sama calendar. That the journey of an installer will Mirage was such an unbelievable manifestation of that love. The prophets a lot of them kept doing what he was told to do. And eventually he received such honor and dignity and love from Allah, the lights the parallels of which have never been seen before and never will be seen afterwards. To receive such quotable to receive such nearly as to a law as no
creation of Allah has ever experienced, not even the mala, mala carabin not even the angels that are close to Allah, not even the leader, the Imam of the angels, you breed alehissalaam generation actually says that even Jubilee rallies around. I was talking about this with some of the students that even gibreel alayhi salam when you reach that boundary set up to the mentor, and he tells the prophets a lot easier to proceed. He says that benei will Bina huzzah Verona alpha Jabba manoogian no denodo member the latter up to that between me and a rough man between me and Allah are 70,000 barriers of noon. And if I was to go near even some of them I would catch on fire and I would
literally disintegrate. Allah nude is so profound, it is so unbelievable, I can't even get near. I can't go beyond this point. But you have been given the honor and the distinction to go beyond this point. And sudo to Naja Allah subhanaw taala says, film Madonna fitted Allah. Then he drew near and then he drew even closer for can acaba fuseini, oh, Edina, that he was literally at the length of two bows, or like a bow like a bow and arrow, he was the length of two bows away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then Allah says, oh, Edina, or even closer than that.
And so this is a huge point of discussion and contention, why it's left open ended like that, that he was the length of two balls away from a law or even closer than that. What does that mean? What does that not mean? what it what we really need to understand is understanding from a language perspective, understand it from what Allah subhanaw taala is saying here, that this is describing what in private, intimate moment it was between a lion that assumed Salallahu alaihe salam, and such private moments with the people that you truly love
are something you enjoy keeping private. It's a personal private experience. And those that were there enjoyed the conversation enjoyed the moment and it's nobody else's business. Allah subhanho wa Taala saying my hubby came close to me, and then drew even closer to me. And what happened after that is nobody else's business. Me and my hubby had a personal conversation, nobody else's business what would happen after that? So hello, so this is in alladhina, amanu, Aminu, sali hazza Allah Muhammad, so the prophets Allah He said him that the love that these people will receive will be the love of Allah, first and foremost. And then of course, we have the hadith of gibreel alehissalaam
which mentions the fact that I mentioned this, I referenced this earlier, when a lot of someone gives you bleed, I love this person you love him. And then announcement is made to all the people inhabitants of the heaven, all the inhabitants of the earth so much so that everyone loves that person. Everything loves that person. everyone and everything loves that person. And so that's exactly what it's referencing here. Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had such acceptance
to all the creation of a law. I referenced this earlier when talking about the word Hana and that the prophets a lot of them would lean against a tree stump to give address the people when he moved away from the tree stump the tree stump cried and moaned. Think about that.
Animals would come up to the profits a lot each one love the profits a lot of them would seek affection from the profits a lot easier than
the profits a lot of the time is one time making will do. He sits down to make will do and he has his a hadith I believe it's mentioned in either in the Sunnah Nova Buddhahood or in the sunon of or in the jamea of the mammoth Sydney theater hammer home Allah so the prophets Allah Simpson's down with like in a bowl of water to make will do and he sits there to make will do and a cat walks through the door walks right up to the prophet to lanita literally just random cat just walks up and walks right up to the profits a lot easier than just everyone and everything was drawn to the profits a lot he thought he had that time the profits a lot he saw the cat and he was about to make
will do it he stopped he tilted the bowl towards the cat so the cat could drink water the cat drank the water, and then went about its way and then the process of went on making will do
so many numerous stories of this nature, the trees would say set would would say Salaam to the process of rocks would say Salaam to the prophets a lot eternal clouds would provide a shade over his head.
such love and acceptance.
such love was provided. And that same love is provided to those people who have a man in Amazonia who build on that foundation that they receive this love this acceptance in the hearts and the minds of the people.
So this is the first thing say Allahumma Ramana would then.
Now the next thing I wanted to mention here, kind of as a subtle note, kind of as a concluding note, in terms of the sutra is that this is the last time here and I number 96 that the attribute of a man is being mentioned is the final time and it's mentioned in this surah more than any other sutra in the entire peran 16 times the attribute of a lot of men is mentioned. It's never been mentioned that many times in any one sutra. So many of them have a zero the classical professor would have even kind
of out of affection and because of the abundance of the mention of Allah's mercy in the sutra, they would refer to this as a surah of Rama.
They would refer to this as a sutra of mercy.
And so and so when we think about the fact that Allah subhanaw taala being so Abundantly Merciful as mentioned repeatedly throughout the suta, what can we reflect in terms of that? What can we realize? So the first thing is, obviously, we see manif great manifestations of Allah's mercy throughout the surah. From Zakaria being given a child yahia, to Maryam being taken care of by Allah subhanaw taala
Ali Salaam, being born through a miracle, and then being given a loving mother, a compassionate mother like medium to then Ibrahim Ali Salam struggling in his relationship with his father, but Allah says, We bless him with a family and we blessed him with all these blessings and Prophethood and everything that we gave him that we made it a household of prophets.
And it talks about the familial relations of not just Ibrahim Ali Salaam, but it's happened Yaqoob and is married and his family.
And then we see other manifestations of Allah subhanaw taala has mercy upon the prophets of Allah, they sent him upon the believers and how Allah subhanaw taala is making the angels apologize sort of sola sola return, how Allah subhanaw taala is reaffirming the convictions in the will of Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu Artesia, so many profound great manifestations of Allah's mercy all throughout the sutra. It began by mentioning Allah's mercy the kuramathi Robic, Abdo Zakaria, and it ends here by mentioning Allah's mercy that said yagoda humara man wooden
so this entire sort of beginning to lend mentions a mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. But at the same time, the reason why even when it's reprimanding people, we'll call it Takada Rahman, weleda, undoubtly rukmani. Whether even when a reprimands of people who do chip who did ship with a law, even their inventions the attribute of a man to remind us of a very important lesson, and that is why the last petrodollar is a rock man, but realize this that some people, they diluted themselves on the basis of a loving man. And they took things too far.
That the Christians when we analyze things at the end of the day, it was that same
delusions in regards to Allah's mercy that led them astray, that Allah has said to his son, and then his son was sacrificed as a cafaro, as an expiation of their sins,
as an expiation of their sins, to absolve them of their sins. And so this is again that overindulgence into Allah subhanaw taala being a rock man, and they diluted themselves on this basis, even the yahood while they're not explicitly mentioned and targeted here, nevertheless, it mentions in other places for Atlanta masala, narrow Allah Yama, muda, lenta masala, narrow Allah Yama Duda, we will not be touched with the fire except for a few days. Another place in the Quran. Now when Rob and I will argue about who we are the children We are the sons of God. We are the children of God and we are His Beloved ones. We are his chosen beloved people. And even the most
unicorn Naboo melaleuca, buena Illallah he's really fun. We want the mercy of Allah, but we are in so in so much in our in respect of the mercy of Allah, these were their delusions, that we don't find ourselves worthy to approach the mercy of Allah directly. And that's why we have these, these idols to basically serve as dignitaries on our behalf for tour towards the last kind of went on his mercy. So he was these delusions in regards to the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that led them astray. At the same time, I always like to reconcile this fact that a lion being a Roman is mentioned over and over again, not only right after, but in the middle of a passage, which was
talking about very horrific punishment that will be provided to people, to disbelievers to mushy corn and people who did ship with Allah. And in the middle of while mentioning the punishment, very scary punishment for these people. A lot drops the name or Rahman Allah mentions the quality the attribute of a rock man. So how do you reconcile that punishment on one side or a man on the other side in the same sentence? You know, we say you can put those two things in the same sentence while Allah does.
Because, number one, it is from the mercy of Allah, that Allah mentioned his punishment. And I talked about this earlier numerous times.
That if it's left a mystery, make sure you take care of this.
well then Or else what?
Right and more often than not because of human nature. That's almost like an invitation to call somebody bluff. All right, let's see what he'll do.
Right and so Allah subhanaw taala doesn't let us become prey to our own human weaknesses, our own emotional weaknesses, our own insecurities
Rather last parallel explicitly mentioned. So this is what I want you to do. This is what I expect from you. And if you fault if you falter in this regard, if you don't live up to this standard, that at that time, these could be the consequences. And here it is, it is explicitly laid out. So nobody could ever say, Well, I didn't know. I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know it would be this bad. No, no, it's completely laid out. So it's almost like the exact test, the test is handed to you. You're given a week to study the test. And then an hour before the test, the test is collected back up from you.
And then it's given back to you fill out the test.
And then if you still can't fill out the test, you got nobody to blame but yourself.
You got nobody to blame but yourself. And that's it. That's the that's the realization of Allah mentioning his punishment within the Quran. It's a mercy from Allah. Listen, this is bad. You don't want to do this. This is where it is leads. And this is how you can save yourself from that. Here you go.
Now, if you still end up there, it was no short It was not due to a shortage of Allah's mercy, not due to a deficiency in the laws, mercy, number one,
number two, in sort of column in Surah, number 68, which have given a dose on Allah subhanaw taala mentioned tonight, number 35. of Muslim, ina komachi mean that should we make those people who submit just like those people who are convicted criminals, meaning should we treat both parties the same? The fact that Allah will punish people is also a manifestation is also realization of His mercy. Otherwise, that would be as loyal upon those people who did actually submit that did believe that did do good, that there's no difference between them and the criminals that would be done upon those people. And Allah states is very explicitly in the Quran that you expect this to treat both
parties insane. No, no, I can do that. That would be fun. Because the answers were given to solutions were provided the punishment was explicitly laid out. Then when somebody said, Okay, fine, I get it. And then somebody tried their best. And somebody said, I don't care, and they went about their business as usual.
Then there's got to be some type of a distinction made between those people. And that in and of itself is mercy. Allah is justice is a manifestation of His mercy. his idol is a form of his Rama and his mercy. And that's what's been mentioned here.
CAGR Allahumma Rahman would. Now one last thing that I wanted to mention here in terms of this acceptance and love, this universal acceptance and love that this person will receive. Notice the last panel which Allah takes the responsibility for providing the love upon himself. So yeah, Dr. Lu, all right. sagia, Allah humara Manu. All right, again, the Arabic students can tell that's a yalu is the verb, it's the fear and, and the fire is the doer of the verb is
not the people but our Ramadan alone will make for them alone will provide for them love.
Meaning you what is the responsibility of the human being? I'm a new army recently had a man in Amazonia believe and do good deeds, then as far as love and acceptance is concerned, that's a law job. Leave that to Allah, Allah will provide that when a human being becomes overly concerned about achieving love and acceptance in the hearts of people when he takes it upon himself to achieve loving acceptance in the hearts of people, then that's not a noble thing that oftentimes leads to very, very unhealthy, spiritually unhealthy compromises. That leads to spiritually unhealthy compromises, which is basically there's a terminology for it within our Deen within our religion,
and that term is mentioned in the Quran, again, in sort of two column in Surah, number 68. And it's also mentioned in numerous, a Hadith of the prophets allottee. So, and that is called Madonna. Madonna. What do low do the you know, for you to you know, they want you to compromise because they're more than willing to compromise
about the disbelievers. It's being told to us a lot in the very, very early time of Prophet have been the opinion of many, many scholars of the Quran surah column surah number 68 was a second shooter revealed
so that early on the profits, a lot of reasons being told that listen, a word of caution. They want you to compromise because they're more than willing to compromise. And so it's a very the process have warned us about Madonna again, do not become somebody that very easily compromises in his Deen in his or her deed, the Sahaba Domino, the long one whom would say something very interesting, very deep, very interesting. They would say that somebody that someone who nobody ever complains about, nobody has ever complained about. Meaning somebody who basically tells people what they want to hear
is someone who compromises his religion
because rather the path to love and acceptance universal love and acceptance is
A person does what they know to be right eemaan anomala lasagna. And at times people might not be completely satisfied with them on that basis. But that person keeps trucking along, that person keeps chugging along, that person keeps doing what they're supposed to do. And then that blessing from Allah that that, that Nehemiah blessing that reward from Allah comes of that universal love and acceptance. But first a person's got you got to do like they say, a person's got to do what they gotta do.
You got to do what you got to do first, and that is the man and I'm a lasagna. And that's what's been that's one last note that I wanted to make here. That the first and foremost thing is a man and I'm a lasagna.
And then as a reward, Allah will provide universal love and acceptance, but Allah will provide the other man will provide that when he's when it's best for that person. But leave a rich man's job to him, and we need to do our job. And that is believe and do good deeds to the best of our ability.
Once that is established, a lot of what's out there now. So the end and the conclusions of pseudos are oftentimes very comprehensive. So he's got three things here, number one,
who are the people that will be blessed by Allah? And why are they blessed by Allah and how they will be blessed by Allah. They are people of humanity, nominal salia
those and those are the exact causes and reasons for why they're going to be blessed. And how will they be blessed, universal love and acceptance, starting all the way with the law, all the way down to even the creation in the Hulk of a law
in not just human beings but even the other muckleneuk and the creations of Allah.
The second is the second last day and now I am number 97. Allah now consoles and reaffirms and provides the last bit of guidance to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah says for in omega sub No,
that definitely no doubt about the fact we have met we have facilitated it for you.
We have facilitated it.
Now first of all, what is that it referring to the it is referring to the Koran.
unanimously, the Mufasa Rhondda scholars, they tell us even the Sahaba to Quran numerous acquired numerous narrations, numerous opinions are mentioned from them, and they all agree that this is referring to the Quran. Now the Quran is not explicitly mentioned in any of the preceding it. This is from Bulava. This is from Quranic eloquence, that without explicitly mentioning Alperon through just the dialogue in the discourse, it's able to make it so clear, and so undeniable that it's talking about the Quran. That is this is damir ba, ba,
ba, ba, ba, ba ba Hera does this is of a meet without a word that's it's referring back to this is a pronoun, without a word that it is explicitly referring back to.
But nevertheless, implicitly, it obviously does point back to something. And that thing, that obvious thing that it points back to is the code on itself. And this is a very, very grand form of eloquence, for in omega sub now. Now the word de seed
tacey often gets translated as to make something easy to simplify something that's not a very appropriate translation. It's more so of facilitating something.
Because that can kind of undermine
the greatness of the Quran. The profundity of the Quran that can start to undermine when you just say, it's made easy, it's been made simple. It's been simplified.
While we understand as Muslims, we understand that, obviously, in what sense it means that it's simple, what sense it means that it's easy. But that doesn't change the fact that it's still demands work.
All right, we both have students from the full time program, we even have students from the summer program here. The full time students know it a little bit better, but even summer students have started to realize this. The Quran is gonna demand some work from you. If you want to engage you want to personally you want a hands on, deal with the Quran, engage with the Quran, understand the crown, it's gonna take a lot of work.
You can put in 10 months of time, and you still sometimes sit down in front of an eye or what do you feel like?
You don't even know where to start from.
And it's all sudden, like, oh, Stiles, what is this talking about? It's like what you've been doing for 10 months, right? But of course we all understand because after 10 years of study, and then 10 years of active preaching, which is basically continued study, active teaching and preaching is just Advanced Study. That's what it is we like to glorify, it is just Advanced Study. That's all it is. So after 20 years of study, we still have to get on the phone and be like, Hey, I got a problem.
I don't understand this. And I have to go talk about it in front of people tonight. So it doesn't matter how much how much
time it's been, we have some hannula we have quotes from people like Abdullah bin Abbas or the Aloha Noma years after the prophets, a lot of them. I often mentioned this in a meaningful prayer course, about the difference between Fatah and colic for Torah and halaqa. Ignore a basil the Allahu Allah says that years after the prophet SAW some had passed away, he said, I still wasn't sure about the difference between photon halaqa and he tells this whole story about how he was travelling through a better one land a better one area Bedouin tribe. And that's when he finally discovered the intricate detail and the difference. The nuance difference between photon halaqa we're talking about Abdullah
bin ambassador, the Allahu Allah who learned the Quran directly from the Rasulullah alayhi salam.
But he's still on that journey of learning. So the Quran, yes, in that sense, it is easy in the good sense. It is simplified for us by Allah Spano. Anthony in a good sense. But the reason why I feel caution against that type of a translation is because you don't want to create misinformation, you don't want to create misunderstandings.
Because it still demands work, it still demands attention to detail. And it requires time and effort and patience and work from a person. That's why I feel a more appropriate translation is we have facilitated it for you
to facilitate something that we've given you tools and resources and facilities and faculties which will allow you to engage with the Quran, find the Maya sadhana who we are facilitated it. Billy sanika
beanie sonica. However, though, the primary means by means by means of which we have facilitated it for you, is by means of your tongue.
And that, of course, refers to language, that this is in your language. And this is in the language of the people that you are addressing. But it's not just simply that, not just simply that, when the Arabs in classical Arabic When they would use the word lease, and they would be referring to much more than just simply language, they would be referring to not just the language, but the lingo of the people.
That the level of discourse that people can understand it almost if you want to try to use a bigger word for it, it's referring to relevance that this is this course people can wrap their heads around. This is very practical, relevant talk. And that's something else that we need to understand about the Quran. That to properly explain the Quran, we first have to engage with the language of the Quran, which is Arabic. To properly understand and explain, we first got to grasp the Arabic language. And I shared this with the summer students that a great amount of the misunderstanding and confusion about a lot of key Quranic concepts or key terminology within Islam is primarily due to
mis translation that Muslims have done
mis translation that Muslims have committed.
So first thing is we got to engage with the language of the Quran.
The second thing is that at the same time, we got to understand the Quran in a way that is practical and relevant. And we have to learn to explain it to people in means in through talk that is practical and relevant.
I haven't even tell people that when I throw in little things here and there.
God do what you got to do. It's not trying to be cute. It's not trying to be funny. But it's trying to just talk to people in a way people understand. That's how people talk to each other. That's what people understand.
And that's very, very important for us to do. never find it beneath ourselves. Never think that that makes me sound dumb. I have to use eight syllable words because I got to sound smart. That's not an accomplishment, that Rasulullah Solomon's mentioned that is shama ilive, the messenger sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, the prophets allowed us to speak in very common language, used to use language that was second, that was common, that was average, that was easy. That was practical. He would repeat himself, when he would talk, first of all use very, very common basic language, and then he would repeat himself.
sometimes up to three times he would repeat himself.
not concerned about trying to sound fancy, because there's no accomplishment in that the accomplishment is helping somebody understand what a lie is saying. That's an accomplishment. feigned, am I a southerner who believes sonica now, okay, Allah says, We facilitated it through these means of both the language and even the common discourse with the people. But why?
Why hasn't been facilitated lead to bashira be hilma talking so that you can give good news so that you can congratulate so that you can lift the spirits.
You can motivate you can inspire by means of it by means of the Quran, ultra clean, people that are God conscious, righteous, good people. You can motivate them you can further inspire them, you can lift their spirits, you can positively reinforce what they're already doing.
And the second step, what to do there are behaved Pokemon Luda. And you can warn by
Means of it by means of the Quran, a people who are very, very extremely argumentative
that people that are confrontational look then
like is mentioned another place in the Quran who I let dill Hassan al Abdullah Hassan. It basically means somebody who is very, extremely confrontational and argumentative. Somebody who's just looking for a fight. And somebody who relishes a fight. Somebody who revels in just getting into an argument, they love it, they feed off of it. That's the type of person that is rude then.
So people that are good people that are willing to listen, people that have an open mind and an open heart, you motivate them, you inspire them, you lift their spirits. And when that doesn't work, and you end up finding out that these people are argumentative and combative, and these people are confrontational.
Then at that time you warn them through the Quran. The couple of things I want to point out here, the first thing is, look at the sequence. First, Allah emphasizes motivating and inspiring people. Then he talks about warning people, this entire suit has already transpired. We are at the culmination the climax the end of this hoorah. It talks about bad bad people who will be punishing the hellfire. But even then Allah subhanaw taala is re emphasizing to the prophets a lot is him that the steps of Dawa remain the same, it's still motivated, inspire. And then when that doesn't work, then you warn. And I've also explained the meaning of indar warning that it doesn't just mean not
scared of them.
Now just damn them and doom them to hell. None of them are, even then in that is to warn people out of concern for them. be concerned for them to listen, I'm just looking out for you guys. I'm just here pleading with you. Please look out. Be careful, be cautious because the path you're going down leads to trouble. I only want good for you. And even the reminder, the warning is a compassionate warning. It's a compassionate reminder. But even then the first step is just pure motivation, inspiration to machine and then in the
tip sheet and then in the
and this is something that we need to keep in mind. And we see again, oftentimes when things like this are mentioned in the Quran, we think that Okay, that's the Quranic standard. That's a very lofty standard high standard for high people. We're dealing with a different situation, we're weaker, it's a different scenario altogether. We have a practical example in front of us so Sudan, a Salah.
We're talking about people who had non stop, oppressed him, opposed him, killed, family members, killed his followers and believers for 20 years. 20 years, Holly who lead single handedly responsible for the murder for the assassination for the killing the martyrdom of dozens of Muslims on the day of a hood at the Battle of 120 years now almost 20 years basically about 17 years 18 years after the fact.
When the prophets a lot ism comes across his brother when he didn't lead who had accepted Islam he was a Muslim and the Prophet doesn't comes across his brother when he didn't leave at the Sula of who davia at the Treaty of Libya when the prophets allows him comes across him This is 18 years for the last 18 years HUDs mission in life has been to make Mohammed Salah isms life miserable to kill Muslims and to eradicate Islam and the promises of comes across his brother and he goes how's Kali doing?
very honestly, Vincent how's Harley doing? Says he's doing okay even kind of shocked. He goes Why do you want to know about holiday Khalid on your wanted list?
is in the on the no fly list.
So why you want to know about holidays?
And the profits of license I'm just asking about him. Because I've always admired holiday intelligence.
Holiday smart dude. Seriously, holiday smart dude.
And I just would have figured a guy with the level of intelligence of brilliance of Hollywood have seen the truth of Islam by now.
And will either normally the brother of holiday or even written off his own brother at this point. Even he had kind of written off his own brother at this point that he's just never going to come around. He just hates Mohammed in Islam way too much sallallahu Sallam
and at that time when he does so inspired by the love the profits a lot of shows towards Khalid but the consideration he's offering to Holly that will lead right to letter to Holly DeCosta promises and speaks about you so highly.
He speaks of your intelligence and your brilliance. Think about it bro you need to reconsider.
And Holly do not believe are the Allahu anhu comes around and accepts the song and he himself narrates and a very interesting incident from earlier
In his life, that when
I forget the name of the Sahabi or the Allahu anhu. But when one of the other companions, when one of the other leaders of grace severe opposition to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had accepted Islam earlier, when he had accepted a sub Abu sufian started to derive him so badly started to you started to humiliate him publicly so severely. The Hollywood elite says that back in those days, I remember telling people soufiane Listen, man, why don't you back off? Why don't you back off? Why don't you leave him alone.
And he says, the way you're treating him makes me want to go and accept a song.
Khalid opens up later and says, you know, it had crossed my mind earlier.
And he says, I even told apostrophe on this once before.
And those loving words from the prophets, a lot of them that's what brought him around. Nkrumah the son of Abu JAL.
The son, the son of Abu Jamal, was so severe in his opposition to Rasulullah sallallahu among the Muslims and to Islam. He had fought by the side of his father numerous times. And then after his father was killed in Baba, he came back and kept fighting on behalf of the operation against the Muslims.
When the prophets a lot of them came to McAllen, fetzima, the conquest of Makkah, he fled, he left town.
And at that time, the product the wife of economic comes to the profits a lot a seven says, Mr. wran, because he thought that you would come after him. And the profits, a lot of them said, I have no ill will towards him.
She says if you grant us protection, I'll bring him back. And I promise he won't come back looking for any trouble. He says, fine.
She goes and she gets her Nkrumah, he's about to board a ship at the port. She brings him back. And he comes into profits a lot of time. Here's the news that economic is coming. He actually turns to a Sahaba. And he says, the son of Abu jihad is coming. When he comes to our gathering. Nobody talks about about his death, because that's still was is that
that type of love and affection is will made it Nkrumah, the son of Abuja had accepted some and guess where Nkrumah died. He died as a Shaheed in the battlefield, fighting on behalf of Islam.
I will soufiane accepting yourself whenever soufiane came into the tent of the prophets a lot of stuff when they were camped outside of Mecca. Oh my god, Allah Manu and other Sahaba were literally about to pounce levels of young.
They were about to pounce him. How dare you show your face here? We come and get you.
How dare you show your face here? The Prophet says I'm told everybody back away, back away. Everybody back off, take it easy relax. Yes.
The even even Saturday method. This is a leader of his people. Where your matters is a leader of his people. So how do I imagine that? Your arch enemy?
Your rival? He's a leader of his people. Where's your respect? yells at his own people, says Have a seat. What would you like to talk about? And not only does Abu sufian accept Islam, but then he asked for the protection of his family and his people. And he says all protection is given. If they come into your house, they'll be safe because I respect you. If they go into their own homes, they'll still be safe. Just tell everybody stay in their house, everybody will be okay.
hinda, wife of a Luciferian who had paid washi to assassinate the uncle Hamza, and then had gone into the battlefield and mutilated the body. prophets also welcomed her. Yes.
She accepts Islam and becomes hindered by the alarm on her.
And while she himself the man who committed the act himself, the prophets a lot of them writes letter after letter after letter, inviting him to a song.
And when he comes in for the profits also in the process of looks at his face and remembers his uncle and starts to cry, and the prophets a lot he sent him says that,
you know, looking at you makes me think of my uncle. And so it's tough for me, I'm still a human being. It's tough for me, but nevertheless doesn't take away the fact that he is as a hobby of the zoo and he is a Muslim. He is a believer, nobody is to harm he, he is one of us now he's one of our brothers now.
This is where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was, after enduring all of this at the hands of these people. Still such love such affection such compassion such welcome such it's such an embrace that he would warm embrace that he would take them in with a lot of muscle Yama
solely to bashira be him attacking.
So encourage them and motivate them. The second thing was the indar and I spoke about that so the sequence is very important.
And then the last thing I mentioned here, something my teacher mentioned.
Well, then the prophets a lot of them also come after some people. Then the prophets Allah some also warned some people didn't also pray against some people didn't he also punish some people didn't know Haile Salam in the Quran. Say Allah destroy all these people.
Ola destroy all these people.
My teacher the answer that he gave to this was yes. But Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, first look at the 20 years of love the 20 plus years of love and kindness and affection that he extended to these people.
Look at look at these key people amongst the enemies of the prophets allies and how we would embrace them, and how we would take them in.
When we've done all of that, when we've lived up to that standard, then we can talk about damning and dooming people and condemning people, then we can do that. But why don't we first implement the first step lead to bashira, beginning with the first step, which is step shield, and over here, it's referring to them with talking specifically, but we have other places in the Quran, and so sort of facilite Bashir on one of the raw
Bashir on one of the raw
and it's not even mentioning but she don't wanna deal is not just in regards to the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, in fact, the majority of them will facilitate some sort of facility, it's actually talking about the Quran. The Quran is first Rashid and then
so that's the first step that we need to implement. The second point that I wanted to make here before I moved on, is it specifically mentions that these people become confrontational. And actually the the third point I wanted to mention is, it says that you give them good news, you inspire them and you motivate them be he
be he using the Quran and you want them using it using the Quran, the Quran is the primary tool, the primary means of Dawa, whether that Tao will be at the stage of topsheet or that's Tao will be at the message be at the state of Indiana, the stage of indult It does not matter our primary vehicle and means of conducting the dollar will always be the foreign and it needs to be the foreign and that's another huge tragedy in the Muslim community today, that our dow is basically everything but the Quran
but we don't talk to put on we don't explain the Quran we don't talk through the Quran to the people. And that's what we need to focus on. That's what we need to come back to. And this is being emphasized to the prophets a lot of
this is being emphasized to the prophets, a lot of them that this quarter army to remain your primary means and vehicle of Dawa. Finally, in the last I hear of the sutra and I wanted to mention this in the next Surah Surah baja I number 113. Allah subhanaw taala says what kind of Allah Angela who Quran in Arabic and exact just like that we have sent down to you the Quran in the Arabic language, which is reaffirming what we just read in this ayah what some rough nafi mean and we're at and we have given all different types of warnings there in the Quran, La La Jolla tahuna. So that these people would develop God consciousness or at the least oh you need to the who the Quran or at
least it would serve as some type, it would speak to them in some form of a reminder, it would serve as some form of a reflection for them. Now finally, in the last ayah, here in number 98, Allah subhanaw taala says, so I told you that hear the sutras concluding by mentioning the three key things, concluding here very comprehensively. Number one was, who are the people that will be blessed by Allah? Why are they blessed by Allah? And do and by me by what means are the are the are they being blessed by Allah? What is the blessing of a lot that they are receiving? The second last eye on number 97 then was a reaffirming to the prophets a lot of some of his convictions. This is
what you've been, this is what's been provided for you. This is why it's been given to you. Don't worry, keep doing your job. We know who they are. We know who the very argumentative confrontational people are, we will take care of them. And that's exactly what Allah finally says. And I am number 98 that at the end of day because a lot ended the previous high with Coleman Luda, these argumentative confrontational people. So a lot then finally ends in the last Ayah by saying, we'll take care of them. You keep doing your job, let us take care of them. We'll come left nakaba hoomin this similar type of an idea has occurred previously in sort of medium as well. We'll come back now
and how many have we destroyed popular who before them in funding from so many different generations of people? How many people before them have been destroyed? have been have been have received the punishment of a lion have perished will come at LACMA cobalamin con Allah then finally says hell to his human human I hadn't.
Do you even sense do you feel? Do you know anything about those people that remains held to huizhou min min home men are hidden from them, even about any one single person from them? Do you know anything else about them? Do you see anything about them? Have do you perceive? Do you have you come to realize or know anything about them? And what that type of question basically means is Do you even know anything about them? No, I don't. I don't know anything about those people. That's exactly the point.
They weren't just destroyed, but they were literally wiped clean off the face of this earth. It was as if they didn't even exist. If the Quran hadn't mentioned them, we wouldn't even know that these people came before.
If the Quran had mentioned, we wouldn't even known that these people came before, completely wiped clean off. This is mentioned in other places in the Quran through another means, where he mentions alleged death. surety has seen and other suitors in the Quran he mentions things like alleged death, a death is a plural of the word death just means a grave
that it was a forgotten grave. You know, sometimes when they're conducting when they're doing some type of construction or some type of a,
like a reconstruction of an area. Alright, they really they're rebuilding an area, they're redoing a complete, completely redoing an area.
And at that time, they end up uncovering like some graves that were buried there a long, long time ago and a structure was built. So for the last 150 years, there's been a structure on top of that. So then imagine how long ago those graves must have been put there, that they were completely forgotten. So forgotten that somebody didn't came up came upon it didn't even realize that there there was a graveyard here and then built a building and it's been 150 years of the building's been in existence. So think about how long ago those graves were there and how long they've been forgotten. That's the meaning of alleged death that these people perish so long ago,
that even their graves were forgotten, held to his human human I hadn't.
Oh, this Marula home exam? Or do you even hear even like a light little sound for them? about them? Rex and Rex basically means like a very, very light sound, a very little light sound? Do you even hear anything at all from them or about them? Some of the look at some of the lexicons they mentioned, this word ryx would also be used in classical Arabic, to refer to to talk about, like, the buzzing of a bee is basically what we call in our culture, what we call like crickets chirping.
Crickets chirping, like you don't even hear crickets chirping. Like nothing. There's nothing you hear about them, there's nothing you hear from them. It's as if these people didn't even exist. And Allah subhanaw taala is finally telling the prophets a lot. You keep doing your job. You take this Koran, and you keep delivering it to the people. And as far as those people after you even warn them, and they remain combative, and argumentative and confrontational, then let them let us deal with them. We've dealt with many, many people before them that were worse than them. And now you don't even know that those people exist, you people don't even know that they existed. People don't
even hear about those people anymore. And who say the same thing would happen to these people as well. So it's a warning to those people, but also tell letting the profits a lot of them know will take care of those people, you just keep doing your job. And this leads us to the conclusion of the surah. Now,
at the conclusion of a sudra, especially the lengthy study of any suit of this type or this nature,
it's very important to kind of recap everything that's been talked about to kind of do an overview. One of the things that's often done in in the study of the coherence and the structure of sutras is that the beginning the end of the sutra is reconnected back to the beginning of the sutra. How does the beginning of the sutra tie into the end of the sutra? How does the end of this sutra segue into the beginning of the following sutra. So that's obviously something we need to discuss. Aside from that, because we studied it over such a long duration. All right, what I would like to do is kind of recap the entire souta highlight the key themes and how the pseudocode went from theme to theme
concept to concept and how we build and how we how we build and culminates and climaxes right here at the end of it and inshallah tomorrow session. The next does, the next session will be dedicated solely to the structure, the recap and the connection, the coherence of the surah. inshallah, aside from that, I what I'd like to also go ahead and announce, just so people can plan accordingly, is that Wednesday, then if we dedicate Tomorrow's the next session to that, then Wednesday, we obviously still have this session going on. And we have one of two options, we could either delve into start the discussion on sudo Taha, if you guys remember the beginning of sort of medium, then
we'll probably only be able to talk about the introduction of the sutra. While that's still beneficial, no doubt, but it probably would be a little more constructive to maybe be able to talk about one specific topic, one request that I've been getting for a long, long time, due to simply the lack of availability of very clearly laid out easily explained material on the subject and topic. And it might seem kind of random like this is coming out of left field, but it's just a request that I that has been made to me at least a dozen times in the last month or so. And that is
Comprehensive lecture, which then therefore will be recorded. So a comprehensive recording of a lecture on istikhara.
So again, I know that's kind of left field, but nevertheless, I've been getting that request a lot. In the meaningful prayer course, I teach the the meaning of the supplication of estacada. So that obviously, I'll cover but that's covered in the course as well. But I'll go ahead and cover it. But the other side of the sakata is also just the general basic physics and understanding of the Sahara, because there's a lot of confusion about it. And whenever I traveled to a community, and I teach just the meaning of this application, I end up spending at least an hour or two hours after the class is over, just answering those little little basic questions about the fit of his taharah. So
maybe inshallah, the hope is the draw from Allah is that maybe recording something like that might be proved might prove beneficial to people and will provide an easily accessible resource that people can access and people can recommend onto others. So inshallah, Wednesday will be a very special lecture on these taharah both the thick of it and also the understanding of the application of it in sha Allah who tada so just wanted to go ahead and make that announcement let everybody know in sha Allah does not come Allahu Allah Subhana Allah who will be handy subhanak along Sonic national Illa Illa Illa antenna saphira corner
