on salatu salam
chartering we'll be studying is number 13 through 75 buyers today.
In the last, yesterday or the previous session, we completed the first part, the first passage of the surah, which basically lays the groundwork lays the foundation and talked about some very important profound concepts. It talks about the primary function of the arm, it talks about the validity of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. And the fact the validity of the fact and the notion and the concept that there are messengers, individuals who have sent been sent by Allah subhanaw taala, to deliver the message of a lot of people. And then it talks about the two groups that people split up into, based on the Quran, the divine message from Allah, and the carrier
of this divine message from a lot. So both the messenger and up are on that when they interact with the people when the people are giving this message. They basically fall into two categories. One category chooses to rejected denouncing disbelieve in it, and wants no part of it. Then a lot talked about what happens with such people, and what is their situation like it's a very profound, powerful example of what their condition is like. And then he yesterday we learned about who are the people that benefit from it, be take something away from it. And we also learn what is the reward that Allah has set aside for them, and what they have to look forward to. Now, then, this passage that
we're going to study, and that'll probably take us the next few days. To complete we're doing five is today.
What we need to understand before we go forward is a little bit of historical context of the revolution of D'Souza and particularly this passage, this was, was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during the marking period, during the time in Mecca, and at the height of the opposition from the people of Makkah. So basically, a lot of the time within Makkah had passed, this was closer towards the end of the prophets alonnisos time within Mecca. So, what basically has transpired so far, of course, the message has come. The prophets Allah has communicated with these people delivered the message to them, not just in one way, but in many,
many, many ways. Like the pond tells us about even new Holly's alive and other messengers that like the new hiding settlements described in great amount of detail. So mainly down to who Jintao for me identity,
law coupled to suffering.
You see this Mr. de la, where you
are running away from
And on and on, and on, he goes with a rough translation or a brief summary of what he's saying is a wah wah I invited these people privately, or I invited these people publicly and openly collectively. Then after that I invited these people I delivered the message to these people. I tried to talk to these people privately, publicly did not work. I went to them individually and spoke to them. Not only did I just tell them listen, what are you doing to snap out of it? But I told them I gave them incentives is optional rumba, camino
Ask him for forgiveness. No matter what you've done up until this point, he'll forgive you. He'll suck down rain from the sky from you who make your gardens become lush and abundant. He'll bless you with family and children and blessings, and then even levels of demonic
power. Why don't you expect these good things from Allah? Look what he's already given you now making them realize, why don't you believe in the law? Why are you being so ungrateful to Allah, He created everything that you have the earth beneath your feet, the sky on top of your head. So in multiple ways, I came at them publicly privately in the eyes before they even says they never want to have on it invited them during the night, I invited them during the day. So I delivered the message to them in any way possible. all avenues, all resources, I exhausted and tried to make these people understand what they need to be doing. But what does he say for them?
It only makes them run more and more farther away from me. The more I spoke to them, the farther they ran away.
And it talks about the
was such Sophia, they will put their fingers in the ears, they would cover up their faces when he would come to talk to them just being rude. What I saw was that they were insistent that they will be arrogant to brush me off and be rude to me. So this was the reaction of these people. Well, the prophets a lot, he said, And towards the end of history, the MCO was dealing with a very similar situation, and reached that critical mass, where now people were just like, had gotten to the point where they were saying, We don't care what you have to say, We don't care what you have to offer. We don't care. We it's just look, we're not gonna move. We want nothing to do with what you're saying,
We have no interest in this.
So please, we're tired of this. Now this game back and forth. Nothing to do with you.
We want nothing to do with your message. So there
is complete apathy.
Not even listening anymore. So can I reach that point, not only that, but they became
active offensive in refuting the prophets alongside of this message, being aggressive, being threatening, being violent, persecuting anybody who wouldn't believe in anyone who would follow him. So they not only were not no longer interested in no interest in what he was saying, but they became very active and very aggressive and offensive in refuting and encountering is the anti doll as I like to call it, they were engaging in the Aikido.
Like a lot
people don't listen to this for a while Hovey, and when he recites a problem, he's telling the people the message, well, hopefully make lots of noise, interrupt them, be rude and obnoxious. The other two who you can overpower him, you can win this fight, because they made it personal. Now, they made it personal, we have to
we have to make sure we win. So when he got to this point, last time, which is now giving them a very powerful reminder.
You know, if you want to make somebody realize the errors of their ways, somebody's doing something bad, somebody is doing something wrong. They have a bad habit.
They, you know, when people when sometimes when people can take it to the end of going to defensive driving, or even the kids when they go to driving school and Driver's Ed, and things like that they showed them pictures of like, horrific car accidents. You know, I read somewhere that some places I'm not sure exactly. If it's in this country, in other countries, sometimes there's a really horrible car wreck, they'll leave the car wreckage by the side of the highway. So people that are driving by can actually see. They can actually see, look, this is what happened to somebody. Why is that done? Because you're trying to let that person will not listen. You're at that point where you
are doing, you are engaging in something that's dangerous to you. And you become so consistent. You become so numb to receiving advice about this, because their parents are telling them drive slow. The cops have given them 15 tickets. Everybody's selling them drive slow, drive slow, don't speed don't speed up.
So even when you try to talk to him about speeding and just laughs brush you off, he's become numb to the advice. So then you try to show him like directly to the car. Look what happened to that person. You take him to the hospital and show him somebody who's got 18 broken bones in his body unless he got into a car like this to happen.
You want to end up like that. And the reason why you do that is maybe this is a last ditch effort.
Maybe this will snap them out of their their daily illusions. And they'll realize what they're doing to themselves. So in this passage, a lost power talent is revealing the eye to the prophets a lot instead of telling the prophets, Alonzo, give these people the example of the people of a town,
give these people, the people that are refusing the message, they're refusing to believe the operation gives them an example of a talent that came before, make them understand that if they don't correct their ways, look what happened to those people, the same thing that happened to these people as well.
So let's go ahead and tell her if you understand that historical backdrop to the IR and inshallah the rest of it should be pretty easy sentence inshallah. So I am number 13, Allah says, well, the regular method, strike for them an example. Now strike for them a template basically means give an example for them.
Give an example for them is to talk about the French. And when you say it like that in Arabic, you know, home for them, meaning, make this story of the people of a town previously, make it relevant to these people. You know, like, that's what we try to do with the irrelevant to people. And this is actually a bit of a implicit evidence of the fact that even when the law talks about disbelievers in the Quran, and
nagasaka people disbelief when we as Muslims listen to it after talking about disbelievers, we kind of emotionally mentally we check out. Okay, you still have a lot, of course, but we feel like it's not talking to us anymore.
Or it's talking about too far, it's not about us. If not, that's a
Because he says even the I that are directed at the kofod are talking about disbelievers are also very relevant to believers. Because they can start to observe some of the science, some of these qualities, these traits, these characteristics, these tendencies within themselves. And if they find these things surfacing within themselves, they need to realize they're starting to lean towards full fellowship. So it is a reminder for the leaders as well that don't even go near to this. Don't mean don't don't get close to this, this this this path that these people were walking. So what
are these people an example of how the idea of the people have a talent in Java,
when messengers had come to them, when messengers had arrived, have come to them.
Now, one thing I wanted to talk about before we go forward is there's a lot of discussion within book systems here amongst us, that will facilitate the scholars have here.
What's this town, which town is talking about? So a lot of them have a similar books, they mentioned a town by the name of inbox, inbox, which is a it was an old historic town, it was an ancient city, and in giant moves alone with these messengers had come to them. And most of them the ones who have been sent by a lot more these messengers is talking about. So in their opinion, they say that these were the disciples of
the Prophet sallallahu sallam, some of his disciples went to go carry the message of Isa onyx Allah and spread the message of aissami salaam to these people in the town by the name of a document. However, he has a very detailed discussion on whether these narrations actually check out how authentic they are. And there's a lot of discussion as to the validity of these narrations. I really feel we don't, we don't need to really get into that discussion. Because the point is, that's important to know that there's an aeration to this effect. But the more important thing is to see what lessons we can extract from these ions. So I want to talk about these ions, in a very plain
sense, just focusing on the language of the ayah and tried to take some lessons away from them. But I just wanted to point out the fact that there are some variations saying that this is talking about a town by the name of a Takia. And these were the these messengers, these people who were sent word actually not messengers, prophets, but these were the disciples of Isa.
So they were the messengers of the messenger.
They were his deputies. They were his messengers. And you can always refer back to Eden you can read that whole discussion in detail which
is that you
know, law says that when a law had sent
to to them, first he said to Westerners,
in Uppsala law says we sent it remember back when we had said to to them, forget the movie. What did they do with these two wrestlers, they rejected them, they refused them they denied them. Technique means they call them liars,
everything they have come with the call them alive and dismissive.
This is a bogus, you know, we don't believe what you're saying.
So Allah says for ISIS now, for assess now, that Aziz It literally means to strengthen, to reaffirm. So Allah says we reaffirm that we strengthen them with what we started with a third, meaning a third messenger was set, a third messenger join their company, to reaffirm to strengthen their confidence and the message that they were delivering to these people. So now imagine that not one but three messengers standing side by side by side, delivering that same message.
If we end up getting three good speakers for a program that
so many women and three messengers, delivering the message to these people, for
their message primarily with what Bob they said, Enough, most definitely we, in a Google saloon, we have been sent specifically to you. There's a bomb or something structure here, which implies exclusivity. We've exclusively been sent to you, we've specially come just to talk to you people. We've been sent
on well into the lava, surely, they responded by saying what
you people are nothing but Basha people Mithra, just like us, this has always been the primary.
Objection, the primary criticism of all messengers throughout time will never need to come and deliver the message to people.
They even think about the prophets.
What's wrong with this messenger, you call them a messenger? You know, we do quotation marks, what's wrong with this messenger.
He needs to do shipping as well. You walk around in the marketplaces, he connects business, messengers, this
is they enjoy facilitating an object by saying
that, you know, if our Lord wanted, he could have sent an angel as well. You say you come with us to the message. You've brought this message to us, but you're just a human being just like us? Who are you to tell me what to do? It's that sense that this is the natural ego, that pride of that human being the the, the the aversion to authority? Why should I listen to
a human being like me? If you come from a law from Rob from rock mom, and you have this divine message? And I'm supposed to listen to what you say, then why isn't some supernatural been coming down? Why doesn't the angel come down with the message? Why didn't somebody who was in the dark come down these ridiculous objections that they went out demands? And even told us that even if,
even if an angel down with the message, what would they have done? They wouldn't.
Even if an angel, literally an angel glowing would have come down from the sky full of mood.
That's just the nature of these people. They're always looking for a job, you don't know what we go through. You don't have a family, you don't go hungry in the morning. You don't have to pay any bills. You know what my situation is? So the messenger, just the person just like me, who used to talk to an angel or some supernatural beings don't know what I deal with. Who are you to tell me what I mean? You You don't know what I'm going through. You have no idea what my life is like, will put you in a position to tell me how to live my life. So either way, it's an objection. So the very first objection was a to another show your people just like us.
remember, because you mentioned in the previous If
so, this rock man that you speak about was sent something down to you, man, he he hasn't sent down anything in and when applicable, you are nothing but lying to us. You are doing nothing. All three of you are doing nothing but lying to us. Just a bunch of liars. That's all you're doing.
The messengers responded by saying what? Ramona, they said to them, Roku.
Our Lord our master, he knows what he knows, in.
Most definitely we have been sent exclusively specifically to you people.
Now there's different tiers reprofiled as evidence What did they say?
And we know that messengers would receive miracles as evidence as well.
Or revive the dead. We know of these miracles.
Oran speaks about these miracles with the messengers,
but somehow not responding with variables, just like our Prophet Muhammad didn't always respond to people's accusations with miracles
There's a famous story of
that he came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
And he started lambasted him and cursing him and you know, parading him in front of people, they put him up to and they said, Please, don't you go talk to him? We can deal with him anymore. So he will turn to What do you want, you want to be famous? Or rich, your money will make you rich, your power and power, what do you want? Are you doing this displaying homes and families and making trouble and receiving the foolish and the low in the youth amongst us, when you finish the process and say you finished
and the profits are
higher than zero.
smell, just started reciting the poem to him. And he kept reciting kept reciting kept reciting in when our team comes in, he recited like past half
till he reached a point of senseless or having that sense. So
he reached a point of Saturday, and it performed such that and then you walked away from
and this man was just completely, you know, insane. his jaw was on the ground. his jaw was on the ground, he was left speechless. And when he went back to these people, they even they saw his face coming back. They say he's coming, he's not coming back with the face that he went with. It looks different, something's happened.
And he came back and just talked, and we said, what this what he's talking about is going to be a big deal. Get out of his way.
I am not going to tell you believe, if you don't want to get out of his way. Don't be opposition to him. So this was the message of the process. Um, sometimes we'll just be
with these people. So similarly, these messengers, the reason why this is very profound, and it's it's really, I mean, it's such an important message. We shouldn't rely on supernatural things, miraculous things to happen to prove our point, our messages,
or messages, enough evidence for us. This is the miracle. This is the greatest miracle right here.
Our master and our Lord knows
that we will definitely have been sent exclusively specifically to people.
And what is our job? What is our duty? What is our responsibility with the people? Because now there's a situation where these people are obviously not interested in the message, and they're being rude and abrasive and arrogant and offensive.
So what's the point? Why are we still talking to you, the messengers are saying, well, man, I will. And the only thing that we are obligated to do, we are not obligated to do anything except Illa. And Bella, Bella means for to reach from one place to another,
to reach from one place to another.
That's the meaning of the law. And the Quran is described as beloved as well in the fee hadda law
or angle for art is described as by law. And at the same time, the messengers alarmism has been commanded and
conveyed. Deliver, make it reach what mountains in the middle of the desert, which is the Lord has revealed send down to you.
So the Koran is the law. It's that much needs to reach people. And it is the thing that reaches people, it affects people like nothing else does. If I give Dawa, if I have all these logical arguments, maybe that'll affect the person maybe rural, but nothing affects people that will
send to reach people to be delivered to people and nothing touches people's hearts. So we the contents of people's hearts. I talked about this yesterday as well. That needs to be the primary means the main vehicle of our dialogue of our message.
And movie, and movie, movie means very, very clear, so clear that it's self clarifying. Self clarify. Very, very clear. So not just deliver the message to them but deliver a very clear, precise, pristine,
understandable message to people. That's our obligation. And that's a very important lesson from this is our job and our task when giving to our people is not just to deliver the message to them, but make sure
The way we are delivering the message, when we are delivering the message is very clear. And it's very precise and to the point, now muddled up, not not not that messy down, free, clear, precise, pristine dollar. And for that purpose, we don't have to come up, we don't have to sit there and create a think tank and rack, our brains on come up with this very clear, precise that are, well, we have a right.
This is about as clear as it gets.
So we just deliver the word of a lost power.
And that's the best one. So they say,
we are not obligated except to deliver a very, very clear message to the people.
Now, in summary, I want to point out two things. The first thing I want to point out is something in the language of the if you look at the end of aisle number
14, if you look at the number 14, the first time when these messengers, they tell the introduce these people, they introduce themselves to these people, they say for
most of this, they said most definitely we have been sent exclusively to up in now illegal mode. So listen to what I'm saying. And then at the end of it number 16. They again respond to these people's accusation of you're just lying to us. They save Robben Island, illegal levels. And you see the difference? First, he said, enact illegal moves. Now these
It's different. There's an extra lab here. Why is there an extra line here? Because when they were first introducing themselves to these people, was there any exchange? Was there any argument? Was there any reputation, no initial introduction.
We've been exclusively sent to people.
But then when they objected not to elaborate, show me through now.
Do you think you're just you're just people just like us? Well, my
grandma doesn't send out anything in particular, and you're just lying to us. Now they're accusing them. So now when they respond to them, they respond back levels, and they respond with some emphasis, because somebody accuses you. You have to respond to their accusation. So this is the difference in the language of the IRS. And this is the reason behind it. And the last thing I wanted to point out is the purpose the biggest lesson of these if this was a consolation once again to the prophets along these unless consoling the province, and the believers as well, that listen, these people of Croatia are resisting, objecting refuting. And they're becoming more and more aggressive
against your message and against your mission. You're not the first person to go through this, not one. But three messengers together, standing together side by side, had to deal with this as well.
You're one person who they don't want to believe and they refuse refuting you, and they are talking against you when they are making accusations against you. You know what, three messengers previously before you have stood side by side by side, and dealt with the same?
The same difficulty from these four people? So you're not the first person to go through this? The second thing that is also concerning the province
is the fact that what is your task? What is your job, your task, your job, your responsibility, what you are accountable for? delivered, the message very clearly leaves the rest of us.
And so how are you and I, we can't really use this as an out, deliver the message. You know, a lot of times, teams and speakers, they give like a 10 minute lecture, what do they say at the end of it.
We can just deliver the clear message. That's the only obligation we have for you. And valid out, we have a long way to go in making the message clear and properly delivering it to people. But somehow that there's anyone, anyone who could claim that he delivered the message perfectly. It was
he delivered the message he fulfilled the right of the message. And the prod is a witness of the fact that he went above and beyond the call of duty. He went above and beyond what was required of him. That's why I was telling him And like I mentioned yesterday unlockables
meaning you're going to kill yourself, destroy yourself with these people don't believe.
So the Prophet says allies, consoling him telling him just delivered the message. That was the obligation of the messengers in the past. You were a continuation of that same cycle that same system, delivered the clear message and leave the rest of the lost power time.
We'll go ahead and we'll stop here until unless this was either 13 through 17 and we'll continue on forward inshallah from here tomorrow. So how are you
