Welcome to your viewers This is your brother Abdul Wahab setting and we are going to be discussing on this exciting show the sea of solitude here jot some reflections on solid rock solid here God is a very, very powerful and unique Surah Surah did her gerat is that surah which Allah subhana wa tada has made very, very particular for the believers pseudotumor gerat is that surah which some of the scholars will refer to as pseudo to adapt surah of the manners. It guides us to the highest morale, it guides us to the highest level of manners. It teaches us how to treat Allah subhana wa tada It teaches us how to treat Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it treated it also teaches us how to

00:01:15--> 00:01:55

treat those people who have yet to accept the belief it also treat teaches us how to treat people who are believers, yet they are far away from us or who are believers and they are right before us. So it gives us a comprehensive guideline on how to treat people. Similar to her gerat is a very, very powerful and beautiful surah Allah subhanho wa Taala says in solitude, here's what Ah yeah, you're letting me know. Yeah, you are letting me know. Yeah, you are letting me know. Yeah, you are letting me know. Yeah, you are letting me know. And this is a phenomenon that occurs five times within sort of tutorial dot O who you believe and the reason for that is because Allah subhana wa

00:01:55--> 00:02:34

tada has made sudo to her gerat A surah. Very, very specific to the believers, meaning that it is like a DIRECT address, a guideline, a code, a manner in which we can conduct our code of conduct, a manner in which we can conduct ourselves. And just like that, Allah subhana wa, tada starts to this beautiful sort of off with those same words. Yeah, you're letting me know who you believe. So it starts off with this call. And it also has this call within it five times. And of course, the call is to other people as well. But the call is specifically meant over here to the believers so that we pay attention to this mannerism in which we're supposed to conduct ourselves with other people

00:02:34--> 00:03:14

society, Allah subhana wa tada Rasulullah saw Salaam they're not yet Muslims, the Muslims who are away from us, the Muslims who are close to us, all of this is very, very beautifully summed up within the Surah Surah to her gerat. So to do that was revealed as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in his her job, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in his house. And as the prophet SAW Selim in his in his house, a group of people from bento Tamim they came, and they stood before the House of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam. And they spoke very, very loudly. Right? They spoke loudly. And this was occurring in what was known as an aloof food, the year of the

00:03:14--> 00:03:41

delegations, there was a year in which a lot of delegations had come to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam This was after the conquest of Mecca, right. So the reason for that was because now a lot of people are either wanting to accept Islam, or wanting to come to political peace with Islam, and Muslims, and so on and so forth. So a lot of different people had sent their delegations from their part countries, and different locations, tribes, and so on and so forth. So as he's sitting

00:03:42--> 00:03:45

amongst his house with his family,

00:03:47--> 00:04:25

people come, and they say the type of things that they would say to a regular King, okay? And they speak in a manner that they would speak to a regular King. Now, of course, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he didn't wish to be a king, but he was also he was a messenger. So Allah subhanho wa Taala guided these people in this beautiful surah, on how to address what sort of last Allahu alayhi wa sallam. And even before he guided them how to address, he told them first and foremost of the status of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So they know through this divine guidance on how and who this messenger is, and why we should be treating him the way we should be treating him

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

and how we should be treating him as well. This is how the surah solo 200 started, but what loss of data and he gave guidance on how to treat a sort of law. He also gave us guidance on how to treat every other people amongst the different sectors that will have been described already. Allah subhana wa tada being the first of them, but sort of loss of the law when he was sitting in the non Muslims, the Muslims and other such people as well. This is, in a nutshell, the pseudo to do a lot, and what it's about it summarizes the different ideas that you will find within sort of Iraq before I go on.

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

into the words of pseudocode. I want to take a moment and talk about a pseudo lasallian because Allah subhanaw taala is going to be telling you of the status and telling me of the status of a pseudo law. So who's Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:05:11--> 00:05:35

The first and foremost thing that I want you to know about a sort of loss of a lover it was said is that Allah subhana wa tada tells us in the Quran, saying in Athena kalkaska, you all messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have given you something called alcocer, once that goes on, and goes on, is this comprehensive, comprehensive idea of goodness.

00:05:36--> 00:06:17

alkota literally comes from the word alcatra, which means lots and lots and lots. So when Allah says, I have given you all messenger, alcova Allah subhana wa tada is saying that I have given you lots and lots and lots and lots of goodness, period, anything good that you can think of amongst us it? I've already given that to you. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the strongest of human beings. And that's why even the strongest person of his time little Ghana, even as he accepted Islam, because the prophets are sending one over him in a wrestling match. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had been given the most beautiful beauty and that's why Hassan Abu cavity says

00:06:17--> 00:06:47

about su de la sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam wax and woman carom terracotta it was human woman cantelli denisa hula hula even Kanika Kolkata. Karnataka more beautiful than you more perfect than you. My eyes have never seen what did you mean woman can tell you the nicer and more beautiful than you are? Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Women have never bore they've never given birth to anyone more beautiful than you all are sort of La sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Do not forget to say something Allahu alayhi wa sallam. What did you mean women can tell it in itself.

00:06:48--> 00:07:23

And men could even you have been created or Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam perfect of all defects. It's as if you have been created, just as you yourself had pleased for yourself to be created. This is the creation of rasulillah the physical beauty of Rasulullah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most intellectual of people, the smartest of people, these smartest human being to ever walk this face of the Earth. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even his sweat did not smell the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he would sweat, that sweat would actually turn into what it would turn into Liebe it would turn into perfume. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:07:23--> 00:08:00

sallam is here, we're not just disposed of the profits and send them here is here when you would have a haircut though Sahaba would use and they would use these hair of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to gain Baraka blessings from this here of rasulillah to a degree that some of those who have yet they would keep the hair of us would have lost them, mix it into water for anyone that becomes sick. And then the person would drink this water to gain Shiva to gain healing and cure from the hair of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam this so the status of rasulillah is extremely, extremely high. It's very high. He is in fact, the greatest human being to ever walk the face of

00:08:00--> 00:08:44

this earth. And I at times, was perplexed. I said, Well, they always say that sort of loss of limb is the greatest human being to ever walk this earth. And then we find within the Quran Allah subhanaw taala says about Ibrahim Alayhi Salam he says in the Ibrahima can omit and coordinate and rely on even that Ibrahim alayhis salam was the oma he was a nation all by himself, Banita Leela. He was a nation all by himself. That would be humbling himself before Allah subhana wa Tada. And he would be far, far away from any form of polytheism. This is Ibrahim Ali setup. Now Allah is calling Ibrahim Allah said I'm what he's calling Ibrahim. And he said, I'm a nation meaning that Ibrahim has

00:08:44--> 00:08:48

all of the beautiful qualities that a nation has to offer within it.

00:08:50--> 00:09:29

All of the beautiful color qualities, if you think about agricultural produce and the sciences related to it, he's going to be able to do that anything beautiful that you can think that leads to a prosperous society, but on him Elisa Lam can can work in that realm, and he knows about that. But even though that is the case, even though that is the case, and we say our sort of loss of them is the greatest human being to walk this earth. How then do we compare between these two phenomenons. One is like a nation all by himself, but he left his wife, child her job smiling, right? in Mecca, Mecca became a great city of Islam, and even before Islam. So he is literally a nation because in

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

one family, he was able to establish an entire city, an entire generation, an entire progeny, and in an entire identity that lives on until today, the family of Ibrahim, the Semitic religions that all attribute themselves back to Abraham, and so on and so forth. Right. Now, the question here is that if that is the case, then all about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam until I came across a verse in the Quran and Allah subhana wa tada gives us the status of Rasul Allah, Allah subhana wa tada says, me

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

Yes una noche de la Houma la home and finally, do they become jealous of the people, of who the people,

00:10:10--> 00:10:32

people, humanity at large enough is inclusive of every single person within humanity. Those that were born in the pre Islamic phase, those that are born to Adam alayhis salam, those that are born who are born after the, the advent of Islam, those who will be born till the Day of Judgment, Allah subhana wa tada says, do they become jealous of the people?

00:10:33--> 00:10:39

Allah, Allah human folly, because of what we have given to them of the virtue?

00:10:41--> 00:10:43

Do they become jealous of such people?

00:10:44--> 00:11:09

And if you look at it, the fasciae of this ayah the scholars almost agree on the fact that this ayah is in reference to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this is a reference to a sort of law, that do they become jealous of Rasool Allah and Allah calls it a pseudo law, the people. So Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was a nation Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his humanity

00:11:10--> 00:11:51

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam embodies anything good you can think of in humanity in its in its entirety. This is our sort of law sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is the status of your messenger anything good, that you can think of period allows messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most able and was the most blessed and was the most fortunate and favored of the people with that blessing with that, with that virtue, this is a sort of loss. But when we say this is the status of Rasulullah, we still noticed that a loss of animals without I still call them that people right? He still says sudo una NASA, Allah at home alone mentality, do they become jealous of their

00:11:51--> 00:12:31

people. So that means your remains within the people. And that's why a lot of reminds us of this phenomenon in the Koran saying, say in America by Sharon colada and Miss lucam say I'm just a human being just like all the rest of you, meaning he's a human being right? I am just a human being just like all the rest of you. But when he will say this, what will happen is some people will have a mis conception they will say well, he's like all the rest of us as in we have our choice to do what? To figure things out on our own. We have our choice to make our decisions on our own. Allah subhana wa Tada. He cancels this particular idea out and this particular possibility out by saying,

00:12:32--> 00:13:12

You have no idea the difference between me and you, despite the fact that we are all from amongst humanity is that I have been given a virtue over you in that I get revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala you ha ha. I get the revelation from Allah subhana wa Tada. Now as soon as we say, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying, I get the revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Immediately what will happen is, people will start to say, Well, if he gets the revelation, then he deserves our worship, right? But Allah subhana wa tada cancels this possibility out as well. And he says that you have Elijah and what's the revelation that's coming to me? What's the revelation

00:13:12--> 00:13:49

that's coming to you or messenger? Now, of course, the messenger saw Selim is addressing the people with this address that he's been commanded to address the people by Allah said, say to the people, such and such in Emma Anna Bashara, Miss lucam, I am just a human being like, like all the rest of you. I get the revelation from Allah subhana wa Tada. What's that revelation and Matt Isla? Whoa, comida Hawaii, indeed of assurity. Your Lord is just one Lord. Right? So if anybody gets any funny ideas and say, Well, this, this individual, he's above everybody else, because he gets the way our last messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is told to, to basically explain that that idea wouldn't

00:13:49--> 00:14:26

work. Why? Because I get this revelation. The first of that revelation is that there is no law Lord, and oh god except Allah subhana wa Tada. There's no God worthy of worship except Allah subhana wa Tada. So whoever wishes for the day of judgment and whoever wishes for the meeting with Allah subhana wa Tada. Then let him good. Let him do what is good. federally, amen. Amen. I'm sorry. And then let him do those deeds that are good. Right? So we do deeds which are good and the deeds which are good have to be confined to the fact that our worship is directed to Allah subhana wa tada going back to the beginning of this verse, and entering into sudo, to hear geodata as well, Allah subhana

00:14:26--> 00:14:34

wa tada said in this verse and sort of calf, he said, well in Mr. Bashara, mizuko say I am just a human being, like all the rest of you.

00:14:35--> 00:14:46

Say I'm just a human being like all the rest of you. Now, he said, when he will say this claim. Some people will take advantage of this and say, Well, he's a human being, I'm a human being right?

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

If that's the case, then what should we do? Well, everybody has a choice to whatever they want. A loss of panel data tells us in the beginning of solo to hear gerat He says, oh, who you believe now

00:15:00--> 00:15:24

Listening very, very carefully. Why? Because you heard or who you believe, as soon as you hear Oh, who you believe, you know that this is an address, which will either be commanding you of goodness, or it will be forbidding you of evil as Abdullah bin Masaru or the Allahu Allah and he used to say, yeah, you know, oh, who you believe? Okay. La Toka d mu Bina de la hora su D do not give preference

00:15:25--> 00:15:29

between before Allah and His messenger to who to yourself.

00:15:31--> 00:16:08

So if a loss messenger is telling us that he is just a human being, that is not our opportunity to give ourselves preference before Allah and His Messenger, rather, the preference is still given to a lot. And the preference is still given to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Do not, do not almost give yourself preference. Now I'm gonna explain the word dopa demo. Okay. What do we understand from the word decoding? We have been commanded to be on our guidance. Okay, what's the guidance? The guidance is what Allah subhanaw taala speaks about. And, in fact, it has seen in us that oftentimes the guidance of Allah subhana wa, tada to the straight path.

00:16:10--> 00:16:35

guidance, it comes from the word Howdy. And the Arabs have old, they used to understand from the word Howdy, a camel, a camel, that would be at the front of a livestock, you have a group of camels, and then you have at the front of the livestock, a camel, and the direction that this camera will take, everybody else will just follow along, right? Everyone will follow along.

00:16:36--> 00:17:18

Now, in your day to day life, as you drive around, you don't have camels. So you might not be able to envision this. Let me give you another example. You're on a highway. And as you're on a highway, you're overspeeding, God forbid, right? And you are doing that. And a lot of people also are on this highway, it's dark, and whatever the case may be, you're overspeeding anyways, or you're driving and you want to just have some company, right? So it's extremely dark, you need to have someone that can give you light to the front, right? Because there's no lights covering this road, only your headlights can can tell you where to go. So you have a number of cars. The front most car is the one

00:17:18--> 00:17:53

that's always endangered. And that's why nobody wants to be in the front. Right? Nobody wants to be in the front. So as soon as you go to the front, what happens? You're not so sure about what's oncoming. And you're not sure so sure about whether you're the one that's going to get the ticket if you're driving fast, you're not so sure there's a lot of uncertainties. So you move back and the other person comes in the front and the other person tries to move back and this process continues right? So there's someone in the front and someone in the back. Right? This is basically the idea of Hideo when you ask Allah for guidance, you're asking a lot to place something before you that will

00:17:53--> 00:17:54

lead you to a direction.

00:17:55--> 00:18:29

And so long as there's something before you that will lead you toward a direction what will happen is you will have that insulation of all of the phenomenon nones around being in the back and not in the front. Right. You know, imagine that car again, you're not gonna you're not gonna be the one that will take the hit on your pocket in case you get a ticket, you're not going to be the one that will be hit by a moose or something of that nature. Depending on where you're driving, you're not going to be the one that may be hit by a camel because there'll be a car before you take that hit. Now the idea is there's a lot of uncertainties and problems that occur if you are the one that is on

00:18:29--> 00:18:30

the front.

00:18:31--> 00:18:36

A lot doesn't want you to go on that front because the law has already protected or pseudo loss of

00:18:37--> 00:19:01

Allah told us of this in the Quran he said while La Jolla he will come in and ask Allah will protect you from the people. So Allah has given this divine protection to a sort of loss a loss and then from what from the people from mistakes. Allah subhana wa tada has given the sort of loss of loss and protection from disbelief Allah subhana wa tada has given muscle a lot protection from everything. Okay, so he's given this special protection, he wants you to stand behind him.

00:19:02--> 00:19:40

Do not put yourself before him. Don't be like the one that wants to get in front and then you end up taking the problems and you're not given that same sort of protection Rasulullah has been given that protection he will stay before you He is your guide. You stand behind them. That's why Allah says oh who you believe la tapa d mu bagnaia de la hora do not give preference before Allah and His Messenger so as you're walking on this path of guidance Allah and His Messenger stand before you stand behind them, and you just listen to what they're telling you the direction that they're giving you the light that's coming around you right? And that's why you asked for this light you asked a

00:19:40--> 00:20:00

last thing a law law make light above me light below me this one you're going to the mustard, light in front of me light behind me, right? So when you're walking, you're insulated with all this light, especially right in front of you, you know where to go. So don't give preference before Allah and His Messenger What up law and also fear a loss of handling

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

Montana as well. Now this is generalizing the fear that was our particular idea that was being discussed that you don't give preference to anything before Allah and His Messenger what duck law and fear Allah subhana wa tada in the last ammirati Allah subhana wa tada is in fact all hearing and Allah subhana wa tada is in fact all seeing, ask Allah Subhana data to help us understand the fact that he is all hearing and the fact that Allah Subhana Allah data is all seeing you see that? Now that Allah subhana wa tada has commanded us to not give preference to anything before Allah and His messenger. Allah wants to remind us of the fact that he is all hearing and all seeing meaning that

00:20:39--> 00:20:45

Allah subhana wa tada sees what you do before people and Allah Subhana Allah sees what you do.

00:20:46--> 00:21:24

After people realize all hearing and allies all knowledgeable and knowledge, by the way, encompasses the fact that he can see the fact that he can hear the fact that he can comprehend that switch that which is within your hearts as well. So Allah is in fact all hearing. Allah has comprehensive knowledge Allah is all seeing these reminders are being made so that you end up making this your demeanor, this is how you treat Allah and His Messenger if you are by yourself when you go to them. When you are given a reminder by anybody right? When you are given by a reminder by the elderly to fear Allah when you're given a reminder by the the people that are smaller than you and age people

00:21:24--> 00:22:05

that are smaller than you and status you see a lot of messengers A lot of it was sent them had the highest status and even that allows messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being reminded by a lot Not once, many times in the Quran to do what it Yeah, you know, be it Allah, O Messenger, Fear Allah. Look at that. And when we hear the word fear a lot what happens when we hear the word fear a lot? Right away, we take offense right away, we get offended by this fear a lot. What do you mean if your law allows messenger from above the heavens is being told fear Allah, Fear Allah and this occurs more than once. So when you are being told to fear Allah, either by Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:22:05--> 00:22:44

in the Quran, or by somebody else, and they're rightfully doing so, then Allah is going to be hearing of what's going to be coming out of you. Are you going to give preference to your own ego before Allah and His messenger? Or are you going to be submitting your will to Allah and His messenger? And Allah is also all knowing of this that are you internally in submission to what Allah subhana wa tada has to offer and what the prophets or send them has guided us to, or are you internally, not in rest and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Nobody becomes a true believer until hedaya kona, how dare The only magic to be until his desires even become in

00:22:44--> 00:23:21

obedience, and in following and in submission to what I have brought. So Allah is all hearing when you hear the word, Allah Allah hears what you're going to be reacting with. Allah is all knowledgeable if even if it doesn't come out, Allah knows what's inside of you. And the messenger saw Selim said the litmus test of belief over here, when you hear of guidance for me, is that you submit to that guidance right away. I asked him lots of panel data to help us submit to the guidance that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has brought to us ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us benefit from the book of Allah subhana wa Tada. Join us on the next episode of the CEO of salted
