He is pleased to announce the return of the quote on intensive in the summer of 2012. That's 30 days of Arabic and Tafseer studies, go to beta summer.com for more information.
So inshallah to continue with our series on swing acing. Today we'll be setting high number 18. And number 19. inshallah, so the previous session we had, we left off in the middle of a passage. And as I explained, last night, this passage, talks about a people within a town, a village, who had refused the message that was brought to them,
despite green messengers coming in,
they were consistent, and they refuse to believe in the message, no matter what the message was. And in fact, they began to let me accusations against these messengers, call them liars. What is your authority based on? You? Nothing's been revealed to you from our Mom, what are you talking about. And so we left off here where these people have refuted refused rejected the message presented to them from these messengers. And they finally ended on the note by letting them know that we swear by our Lord that most definitely he knows that we have been sent, we have been sent to you. And Omar, I mean, you can refuse, you can reject, you can insist you can do what you need to do. But what you
need to understand is our obligation is exclusively to deliver the message to you in a very, very clear, profound, proper manner. So this is where we left off today we'll only be sending to is so that we can show up early understand them a little bit late tonight.
In short, in either we're at a loss, or who tells what is the response from these people, once a messenger is already replied to the initial accusations from these people by letting them know that Listen, you know, Robin is our Lord or Master, he knows in a lobby exclusively, specifically incenting people
to very clearly express the message and deliver the message to you. Now these people respond, they get back to these messengers.
So this is showing the progression. And remember, I explained yesterday how this passage is not just talking about that one specific town. But the message to the prophets a lot Eastern is actually the fact that Listen, this is something that has transpired, time and time again. And it happened with all the messengers who were sent by a mosquito, and every one of the messengers not through this difficulty discord deal. And so what you're dealing with is nothing new. This has happened before. And that's what's happening with you again. So now it shows the progression of the refusal and the denial of the message, it becomes part of who they say now, in
that we most definitely feel or sense, evil, or misfortune from
the word The idea is very, very interesting. It comes from the root of the word play, played in the Arabic language means verb. So it really means for thought it is something that flies are and it also refers to making birds fly in a throw the pigeons up in the air and they're meant to fly around. And in previous times, what they would do is when somebody had to make a decision based on something, when somebody was trying to figure out whether this is a good situation or it's not being we take burdens and they would toss them up, they were thrown around a little bit from flop. And based on the direction that they would fly and how they would fly and how far they would fly. They
will base their decision based off of that superstition of a type. So from this kind of work that they do, they have the means to find, to see something as an evil Omen
to have to have superstitions and things that if you see this sign, or if you see this happening or if that happens. That means that there is some bad luck coming your way. There's some distortion coming your way. Something bad is going to happen to you. So what these people are saying is enough that we see to you the message of you
See us, as
we said something bad is going to happen to us because of you, we see you as a signal of something bad that's about to happen to us. Now, is this statement substantiated or not. So this is where we kind of take a step back, and we look through the,
and we find something very interesting.
In sort of an in sort of an analyst towards Allah, He says,
in public, there was definitely we had sent to the nations that came before you will know it's a law. That means we have sent messengers to the people that came before you as well for
the law, and we all of a sudden grab them.
All of a sudden, we grab them in Arabic, it's an expression basically means instantly, very quickly, some difficulty came upon them, they were stricken with something, something befell them and what was it bill
refers to very difficult economic situations of poverty, starvation, lack of water, crops are growing, things of this nature, will rock the rise, other types of adversity and difficulty, whether it be social well being war, whether it be conflict, or external, other difficulties and problems. So this is what this refers to. So Allah says, is telling the prophets
that unless there were nations before you, and we also send messages that came to those nations as well, and those people were stricken, illustrata sent upon them difficulty adversity, economic social adversities, and difficulties and problems. But this was then
this was done so that they would humble themselves, they would soften up a little bit, it would break through a crack that show that ego that they had placed around themselves in the craft room that shell and it would humble them just
and then the next one is go to the alpha level repeats the same,
the same concept where he says
10 Min, the median is a little more explicit, Allah says that we are not sent to any town, a prophet, except for a button
that will grab the people of that town with that same difficulty and adversity and the problems around, once again, this was only done so that they would humble themselves, they would become a little bit more humble, they would come off just a little bit from, you know, the high pedestal that they were standing on, they would come out of their delusions just for a minute, and realize what's the truth. So now what's happening is something very interesting, when a messenger is said to people, and he presents the message to the people. And people are not willing to listen, people refuse and deny the message, then some difficulty comes over. And this is to reinforce the message
of the messenger to serve as a wake up call. You know, if you can't wake up from the alarm that you set in your phone,
then you buy a digital clock.
And that digital clock doesn't wake up in the morning.
Those big old antique alarm clocks without the bells on top of them that would wake the dead. So you go and you buy one of those
on top of your neighbors friends up before you do, right. So you go and you buy one of those Why? Because the other things are working and now we can go. Similarly the messenger comes presents a message. People don't listen, messenger displays a miracle to these people, they still don't listen. Something comes from our data. This is that alarm clock with the bells on top
that allow alarm clock to wake them up out of their sleep. Their sleep is loose delusions.
This is this attitude that they have. This insistence upon ignorance of the stubbornness is to wake them up. We know about in the
when I add
today except the message
so let's just
show them the staff that turns into a state put his left arm inside the left hand in his armpit, pulled it out and it's glowing. showed these miracles to these people did they still believe we know prognosis they didn't believe so. Farmers are unable to farm unless we sent you know, storms and very harsh
weather conditions and functionality to find one job. And there are losses we said Look Mr. Bell likes
What are the frogs? When done blood, one after another after another in waves, this adversity this test from the last game, to wake them up to snap them up, snap them out of this deep sleep that they have fallen into. So this is what a lost Rotella tells us as soon as I'm alive, that this transpired with all the messengers and all the people that the messengers brought the message to. So what I wanted to illustrate is the fact that this objection, or rather the statement that this disbelieving people are saying to the prophet to the messenger, it actually there is some significance to this, in the sense that difficulty came upon them, because they weren't believing. But the mistake that
they're making is what
they're attributing the difficulty to who the messengers, you people are about your upbringing misfortune. And the thing is not just bad luck, but it's a sign of bad luck to come
in evil Omen, so to say, we see you as an evil omen. We're feeling it from you.
Let him tell.
the next progression, or the next step,
the first one was worth the attribute, the attribute the evil that is coming upon them.
Because of their own insistence and their own stubbornness, the attribute into the message, the next level of their conflict, disbelief is what lead to aggression, violence, threats, lead, if you don't stop, London,
we most definitely will stone.
Rock him, literally refers to throw rocks at something.
And it can also mean to cast something to throw something away, like you throw away a piece of garbage will throw you away like a piece of garbage, or we'll throw stones that will literally stone to death.
If you don't stop, we will literally most definitely the thing with emphasis there now.
This is with emphasis, we will start with what I send that to me. And most definitely you will feel from us, you will feel from us you will experience from us.
A most painful, tormenting punishment
will inflict pain on you have no doubts about that. So this is a threat that the issue.
Now you see where it's escalated to. And just so that we're following along with the lessons of these I'll
switch over will quickly make bring the parallel of the life of the Prophet
did not reach that point. It reached
the Prophet somalisa they came before I will call the customer when they say he's torn apart for homes. He's causing problems in our town in our city, talk to him, because you want money,
money, fame, power influence.
We'll give it to him. Some stuff this, they got to the point where
the negotiations are making part of the deal they put on the table was he can continue practicing his religion, whatever he wants to do. stop preaching and teaching it to the people we can deal with.
When the Prophet
I do anything. This what they're saying,
is there any sense of
you giving this some thought is making sense to you,
the prophets are watching the tears in his eyes.
Because he for a moment, he thought, even by
and he said, I swear to you,
that if they put the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left, impossible, but that's what he's trying to say. Even if they could do the impossible.
I still would not stop doing what I've been sent to do. This is my mission. This is what this is. And then, of course, to reassure the profits, that you know, given up on him, yet he still was supportive of him. He told you go do what you continue to do, and I will be there to make sure that nobody gets to do. So. That same situation happened like they were they were having problems with their society. And they said whose fault is it?
To say these people are saying you profits, you brought a lot of problems with you and bring the evil upon this. Then when the Prophet told us we didn't stop the
violence, aggression, the killing of Serbia, the killing of Yasser the parents of our Ummah
and so many other
companions of the Prophet Elijah were tortured, ruthlessly. Billa got
tortured mercilessly. Even women were not spared. And why was this was that oppression? This was where it escalated to, like insane here.
Now what is the response? Follow the messengers, they say back to these people, what? Bah
bah, bah, this evil that you sense, these evil moments that you feel that you were alluding to that you're referring to.
This is your
meaning what the messengers are not.
They're not substantiating the fact that there are evil moments. But it's a rebuttal. It's a response. That if there's anything bad happening to you, it's your own fault. It's your own doing to take a closer look at yourself a lot harder look in the mirror, and then tell me where your problems are coming from.
And where did these evil omens aware that all these problems, and where did all these complaints arise from?
From the simple fact that you were reminded? You were given a message when you were just told what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is bad what how you should live your life, you were just doing good simple advice, a simple reminder, we'll get to, based on that this is where it comes from, rather than take the message and understand the message and internalize the message and see how we can benefit to you rather than turn it into something so negative. By ECOMOG, you'd say that we are bringing evil upon you. And we're indicator signs of something bad that's about to come upon
yourself there with you.
Just because you reminded,
rather you are a people who see form, Muslim form comes from the word is rough
is literally the root of the word comes from the meaning of crossing the line
crossing the line, mostly for people who cross the line.
Now, you rather are people who are crossing the line, what line are they crossing, love is not specified. The reason why he leaves it open ended is because you're crossing many, many lines.
They cross the line in terms of not believing.
They cross the line with the messengers by refusing them and slandering them and accusing them of things. They cross the line further,
even against themselves, that way, no difficulties are coming upon them because of their unwillingness to accept and understand the message, they turn around and put the finger outside rather than to themselves. It's his fault. It's their fault. They did this, he did this. We know we've been doing it. So our problems,
the crossing these lines and boundaries. And the biggest thing is, somebody has come to you sweating, bleeding, sacrificing,
he's putting himself on the line. Why? For your sake, that benefits you to give you the message to make you understand. And rather than understand the message and appreciate him for what the person is doing for you, you rather tear her up and you blame your problems on him. everything that's happened to me is when he is the only good thing that's ever happened to him. He's the best thing that ever happened to a messenger has come to you and deliver the message to you you turn around and blame him for your problems. He's a problem. But until
now, at the end, I just wanted to point out a couple of things. The first thing is that as I stated in the beginning, this is something that has occurred with all the messengers before and this was something that we find even in the forum. And so to lock off it number 131 31 last final analysis will
be seen ceiling. Allah says we afflicted the people of Pharaoh with drought. We're not assuming that for up in a decrease a lack of crop fruits that we are going to that maybe they will realize they will heed the warning and the reminder for either Jasmine Hazara when something excellent something good came upon him.
So this is exclusively for us, because we feel we've accomplished what a person would say. But if something bad will come upon them.
Your mama, this is all
this is all their fault. Even about the people in Macau says, Lisa, I never seem to be a wedding.
Boom, say I don't
even think they would point out the profit somebody something when something bad, something evil would come upon them, they would take this all from you. This is your fault.
This is your, this happened to us because of you. So this was the habit of the people. Now when they get this type of approach, when they began to escalate the matter, when they go from blaming the profits for their own problems, and then eventually escalated into violence and threats. How's the messengers supposed to respond now? Less teaching the messenger how to respond by telling you, what did you What did your brothers the messengers who came before you who dealt with the same situation with the day dude? What was the response to the messengers? Yes, yes, it's all our fault. We're the ones who did everything by
In the sense of the shops have shut them back, no, but at the same time, some confidence and told them what needed to be said.
This is, this is your problem. You're blaming me for your problems. I think you're only doing this simply because you were reminded you were giving good advice. And this is how you respond. But the problem was before, look, you're crossing lines, that should not be crossed. I'll have nothing to do with this feed
into the profit dilemmas that was being taught by our toddler how to respond to the staff
that don't fall to their level. But at the same time, be firm, be Stern, and let them know that
this is your problem. You're the one making the problem for yourself. Don't turn around and blame me, you've created this problem for yourself.
And then the last thing that I wanted to mention here was based off of the items that we recited at the end of the
week today, at the end of October. The second last I also do because it kind of ties into what we're talking about. We're talking about the messengers a lot into what was transpiring with him what he was dealing with, and how I was giving him advice or was guiding him through the forum by telling him that listen to the same thing happened with the messengers that came before you. How do they deal with it? How do they handle the situation? So I feel it's important to understand a little bit about the messengers are loving, so we're excited.
We're actually tells us one of the greatest blessings of Allah on humanity, mankind, specifically the Muslim Ummah, was the fact that this messenger was sent to us, that he was sent to us. We have a role model like this, that we have somebody like this to look up to the job, assuming emphasis.
There was a lesson that I came to you from amongst yourselves, meaning when he understood what you're going through, he can relate to him, he can relate to you. He understood. You know, he was relevant. He was engaging.
He had empathy within him.
He would feel for a job.
It was very rough on him. When she would go through what you were going through what you went through, was really rough on him was very difficult for him. The prophets a lot. He was the type of person when he saw somebody else in suffering or pain and hurt him or hurt
you you would you would feel the pain with people who would cry for people, you would pray for people, you'd stay awake at night for people who go hungry when you meet somebody else.
That's the type of person that
And it was literally Harry's custom hills, we usually associate this this quality, with money with wealth, breeding.
We're breeding for money, for house for cars, for fame, luxury, reputation, all these things power influence, the process and also, if you will, he was also he also desired something. He was also after something, he was also chasing after something. What was he chasing after?
money and wealth and power. It was the well being of humanity, the guidance of mankind. This is what he lived for. This is what he morning and evening where he cried for when he bled for this is this was his whole life was dedicated.
And I mean it's such a long topic and such a broad issue to talk about. So I won't get into specifics and coke incidents, but the profits have never stopped.
literally never stopped.
just constantly. He gives a beautiful example, lead
by example, in your example,
a man who, with a big fire, when you light a fire outside what ends up happening, the insects, bugs and insects
become the default for Java genetic code for Russia, he said all these birds and insects are coming and falling into the fire. Well, as he says, I'm trying to shield them away from the fire.
The problem is a lot of something, I'm trying to shoot these bugs away from fire, you're gonna follow the fire and die. And so after that, since you're like those bugs, rushing towards that fire, not realizing what it is I'm trying to grab you. I'm trying to grab it from you. I'm trying to show you but you keep slipping by. So I keep trying to grab you from behind
it but you're slipping right through my fingers.
The process of seniors with tears in his eyes.
This is how much he cared for.
That's all he wanted people to do. For people to believe,
for people to find success.
And the people who wouldn't believe that would fall in line I would support that we believe in follow him. Roku. very compassionate, soft, gentle Rahim and very, very merciful.
That's what the prophet SAW.
compassionate, merciful. And when you look through his eyes, like I said, I want you to quote in detail, specific incidents, but all the famous incidents that we know, the veteran urinating in question
When the young man comes to watch and ask for permission to come in, sit up,
slap, brush raw
toxin treated like a person.
Toxic intelligence. And then there's what? So let the young man know that the processes are working any graduate. If everybody knows the story, he asked for permission to come into the province. What if somebody was to do the same thing? With a female member of your family? How would you feel
when the young man Understood?
To let the younger know to show love and compassion to build a connection or bond with him and to let him know Look, I have a red against you. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam placed his hand on the chest of that young man and made to offer a lot more. Allah purify his heart. Can you imagine being touched by the prophets?
The love the compassion.
And the stories like I said, go on and on and on the young boy whose birthday
boy whose birthday he had a pet, pet bird, his bird died. The prophets Alexa finds out that there's a boy who's birdhouse.
The process of detail time this is a messenger of a law center all of humanity. The leader of the of humanity takes up time to go see sit down, talk to a young boy says what happened to you over
time. Look how he's talking to him. He's making time for him. And then we turn like this forever. This is we loves it so much. He loved us, you and I.
And what we have to do today, like we heard a little bit of a reminder earlier today is that the greatest thing we can do is try to live up to that legacy, that standard. Try to live up to that lifestyle. Be compassionate, be merciful to people, empathize with people, be there for people help people. share the message of Islam with people through your character through your compassionate University in your love. And that's the greatest thing we can do to start to try to live up to the unbelievable legacy of Mohamed Salah. They have lost intellectual ability to practice everything that's been said and heard. Somehow you will be so proud of a lot more
than that to the suffering
