spinner hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah Hamdu lillahi Hampden you watching films either Hassan Allahu ala Sayidina Muhammad in one early he was a huge marine Allahu alumna and fauna on fat now Bhima Alam tena was in early Manaea Karim or Beshara. He saw that he was suddenly everywhere here to record it and Melissa Annie of boho Kohli visit near Illman or visit near ailment or visit near Alma Allahumma Salli. Ala Maria alto salah or entity journal has named Akshay Salah welcome everyone to another class on introducing Quran and we left off at Iron number 14 and salted Bacara Allah subhanaw taala says we're either local Ledin and Makalu Armineh when they are E, the the Munna
Philippine, the hypocrites they meet those people who have believed they say we are also believers, they say we believe we're either Hello ILA che Alpini him and when they are by themselves along with their devils. So that means that human beings can also be devils as well right? Allah has made Shayateen from ins and algin as Allah says in the Quran Shayateen al ins will join you EBA Allahu ala Bellinzona of Elko they are Shayateen among the humankind and also the jinn kind. Some of them they whisper to others, beautified words intended to make people go straight what either Hello Isla Shalini when they're by themselves with their devils. Arlo in nama calm they say we are with you. To
the believers, they're saying one thing to those who disbelieve or their Shayateen you're saying other things in normal stepz own but we're simply mocking the believers in pretending before them that we happen to be believers as well. So they're two faced. Allah says Allah who he says it will be him. It is Allah who is mocking them, they're not mocking Allah subhanaw taala Allah knows what's inside of their hearts. So Allah is not being fooled by them, of course, because Allah is the One who knows what's inside of the hearts and what's outside as well. Allah is the one who's mocking them by letting them carry on wandering blindly in their transgressions, while you do whom feel
Tolyatti him Yama, Han. Allah is letting them wander blindly in their transgression, and that is a way in which Allah is mocking them as well.
Now Allah doesn't necessarily mock so to speak, this is what they call mocha Bella, where,
because mocking has a negative connotation, but sometimes in the Arabic language, one word is used and another is used in almost an offense, almost in a defensive way. Okay, in retaliation, so this is retaliatory. It's a rhetoric, it's rhetorically retired, retaliatory. So what's intended is that by letting them wander blindly in their transgression, they are the ones who are making a fool of themselves. Well, now you can live in a store with Bala terribile, who the they are the ones who have exchanged guidance for Miss guidance. So they're making a trade guidance against Miss guidance them out, I'll be happy gelato. Now, this trade of theirs. The trade wasn't profitable as Allah
says, Wilma Gan Omata Dean, and nor were they guided. So Allah subhanaw taala is making this situation that they're in he's making it look like a trade. They have the opportunity to be guided externally, they're pretending to be people who are guided internally, they have other intentions. So Allah is saying they had complete opportunity, all will and an opportunity and options to be people who are guided, apparently they're acting guided anyways, all they had to do was now internally believe as well, but they chose not to. And because of this model Behati Jarrah, to whom their trade is not going to be profitable, nor are they guided my fellow home now this is the first
parable that Allah strikes in the Quran. And not after not sooner, not later after this Allah subhanaw taala very soon after this will defend the parables that Allah strikes in the Quran as well. He says methylome their example is like the one who kindled a fire gamma fell into the stoker Dinara phelim Allah Maha Shula who they have Allahu venuti him. Their example is like the example of the one who kindled the fire. Now when this fire, it lit up everything around him.
The Hub Allahu venuti and Allah took their light away
and left them in darkness without aka home few Lumet Lauzun, they're unable to see in this darkness now let's break this example down of it. Okay. Now, from this example or this parable, you should already get ready for something you should get ready for something, okay? Prepare yourself for something and that is that in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah Allah is going to strike a lot of parables. This is one of the angles of the study of the Quran. The parables of the Quran or the examples struck by Allah azza wa jal in the Quran. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada strikes this example the very first one what does it say? It says the example of these Munna fuel clean these hypocrites is
the example of a person who takes a lantern he lights it up. Now this lantern is lit.
Okay, but Allah Allah Allah mahalo now, it is illuminating everything around him. Suddenly, Allah azza wa jal takes their eyesight away.
If you have light all over, but you can't see.
what's the point of that light? So Allah takes their light away, without aka homefield, Ludo, Matthew Loubser on and because of that, they will there are now in darkness is unable to see completely.
These people they have access to guidance, that guidance is a light. However, they have made a choice willingly, that they're not going to follow the guidance that they have access to people have access to many things in this life. Some people are available, those things that they have or those opportunities that they haven't, whatever they have before them and others do not. So these people they have access to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, they have access to the Quran, they have access to all of this node but they are choosing not to benefit from the node that Allah subhanaw taala has blessed them with all around them. So their example is like the one who has lit a lantern
that lantern illuminates everything, suddenly the light goes away, meaning their ability to see basically goes away. And then they are in darknesses lobe zero and completely unable to see someone Bookman Roman, and that's why right after that Allah says they can't hear. They can't see. And they're blind. For whom lie LG Arun and because of this, they will never return. They will never return to guidance as they are deaf, mute and blind. So they're metaphorically deaf, metaphorically mute, metaphorically blind. They're not literally blind because they can see. But they're rhetorically blind. Meaning they can't see the truth. They can't, they can hear they have the ears.
But they cannot hear in a way that they benefit from the things that they're, they can speak. But when they speak, they don't speak with words to have honesty in it. They don't speak with honesty, they don't have honesty in their heart so as they speak, so they can speak, they can see and they can hear, but none of those faculties are benefiting them in any way. They're not going to turn back to Allah subhanaw taala because they've chosen this path, another parable that Allah strikes and other likeness that Allah gives. Another example that Allah gives, also for them on our 15th is the example of rain Oka so even Minnesota or like rainwater that comes down or rain storm storm from the
sky fee, Lulu Martin whare don't worry about going inside of this rain is darkness, thunder and lightning. So this rain is at a time where there's darkness outside. It's nighttime, basically. And it's at a time where it's coming with thunder. So it's scary because of the sounds, and it has lightning as well. So there's a sense of fear that they're going through because of all of this rain.
So Allah gives two different types of parables. One of them is the parable of light, because Allah refers to the Quran as light. And the other one is the parable of water. Because Allah subhanaw taala refers to this entire Deen as a Shira and a Sharia is a pond of water. Why? Because Islam it sort of satisfies a person, just as water sort of satisfies a person. Similarly, the religion also illuminates the life of a person, just as light illuminates the life of a person. Some people have light but they don't benefit from this light. Other people have rain, but there's other factors along with that rain that is not allowing them to benefit from that rain. So Allah says, oh, casa,
you've the second example for them is like the example of rain that's falling from the
Sky. Now of course the rain only falls from the sky. But Allah is just emphasizing that fee Ludo mattone. Inside of that rain along with that rain, there is darkness, thunder and lightning, yet you're alone are far better home than him because of this lightning. And because of all of the fright that's being caused by this, they take their fingers, and they placed those fingers into their ears.
Because they don't want to hear all of this. They don't want to hear the sound of the thunder bolt if they place their fingers into the ears out of fear of these Thunderbolt bolts and because Heather and Mel was because they're afraid that the Thunderbolt is going to come down and strike them and maybe they will die in the process. So they have a fear of of death and all of this.
They have a fear of death.
Now, what does this mean when we compare it to the Quran and the guidance that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is giving them and the opportunity that they have but they're not availing it? Well see, the Quran again is satisfying just like water satisfies the body. The Quran satisfies the soul. So they have this Quran however, it satisfies the soul of a person who has purity in that soul who wants to accept that guidance. Someone who doesn't want to accept guidance, sometimes feels irritated by the Quran. They will hear things that are going to be irritating. They'll hear things that talk about the kuffar going to hellfire. This is not something that someone
who disbelieves wants to hear. So it's irritating just as a person who sees rain from which he can benefit, but at the same token, there is darkness, thunder, lightning, thunderbolts, he's being irritated by all of these other factors. He doesn't want to benefit from this rain, he doesn't want to have a piece of this rain. Similarly, the one who has a disease in their heart, they don't want to get close to the Quran. They don't want to read the Quran. They don't want to hear about the guidance. Why? Because all of these things are irritants they feel irritated by them has already moved. And so they take their fingers and they put it in the ears. And they they try to cover cover
up their ears because of the sound of the Thunderbolt ie because of the sound of those ions that ended up shaking. The mind of a person has oral notes because they're afraid that if we die, this will be the consequence that we're running away from, while Allah who will heal them Bill caffeine, and Allah is all encompassing of the disbelievers. Meaning Allah subhanaw taala has knowledge of what's within their hearts, these people who are hypocrites. Outwardly they happen to be Muslim but inwardly they have some other agendas Yeka
tofu Apsara home lightning almost snatches away their eyesight your garden Baku,
Zara home, Gu llama Allah Allah homage ofI
every time this lightning goes and illuminates for them, they start walking, what either of the llama I lay him calm, whenever it becomes dark, they end up standing. So they avail every opportunity that they can avail from being Muslims in the Muslim society like them when I 15 used to do, but whenever it's it's an irritant whenever it is not very convenient to be Muslim, they walk away, or they stand aside and they don't want to be with the Muslims anymore. Now Allah says that before they were metaphorically unable to hear they were deaf, mute and blind, metaphorically, but Allah says, Listen, guys, this is a metaphor, yes. But if I physically wanted to take away your ear,
I would have done that when Oh sha Allah who led the hobby summary. If Allah wished Allah could have taken their actual hearing away. If Allah wished he could have taken their actual sights away as well. So this is a warning for you, just as there is a punishment on the day of judgment for those who disbelieve internally, but show belief outwardly. Similarly, if I wish I could take your ears away within this life as well. And I could take your eyesight away within this life as well. Well of Sati him in Allah Allah Cooley che in codeine, Allah is capable of all things. lightning almost snatches away their sight. Whenever it lights up the path for them, they walk in it, but when
darkness envelops them, they stand still, if Allah willed, He could have taken their hearing and sight away. Indeed, Allah is the most capable of everything. Yeah. Are you hon NAS, oh, people are going to want to back home. worship your Lord. worship your Lord, Allah the Halacha come Now Allah is addressing all of the Creation
In all of the previous verses from the beginning of Surah, Al Baqarah. Till now, Allah described three groups of people. And after he described three groups of people, the first of them believers, the second of them those who don't believe, and they're outwardly clearly disbelievers. The third group happened to be them we're not faking the hypocrites. Now, Allah addresses all three groups. Oh, who you are, oh people altogether, human beings in general, or will do back home. worship your Lord who created you. And let the Halacha come the One who created you well, levena men publikum any created everyone before you as well. Now I like them to own so that you may be come righteousness so
that you may have piety so that you may get closer to Allah subhanaw taala. This is how you will have the Taqwa of Allah. Because Allah has created human beings to worship Allah. This is the role of human beings, as we all know, in the verse that we hear all the time. Well now Haluk to Jinnah, when INSA Ilaria who don't? I have created humankind for the purpose of worshipping? They haven't been created for other reasons. Allah says that what he do mean communities know about what is the minimum income? Matt, what do you do minimum middle has been woman, minimum annual time and I'm not wishing for any wealth for them. I'm not wishing for any provision from them, nor do that, nor do I
need them to feed me. No, no, no, Allah is a result in the law. What was up with the record, Timothy? Allah is the one who feeds other people, Allah is the One who provides for other people he does not need. He's not in need of anybody. Allah just wants you to worship. That's it.
And Allah will provide for you, Allah will grant you, if this dunya takes you away from Allah, that is when dunya becomes evil, so long as this dunya remains a means for you to get closer to Allah, that dunya is good dunya at that point, because there's a little bit of dunya that people need, and that's the reason why the Sahaba they used to work on a hot tub. He didn't completely leave everything and started to go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam all the time. Rather, he would go one day for work, and he had to deal with another companion, that you work one day and I work one day, okay. And the other day, each one of us will go to the prophets of Salaam and come
back home, the one who didn't go, we'll hear from the one who went What did the Prophet say what happened in the gathering of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. But he needed to work with mandibula fan was a person of business Abdul Rahman used to go and these are all Sahaba who have been promised Jana used to go and work as well. So there's dunya is important so long as it's only there to get you closer to Allah subhanaw taala. Other than that, as soon as it becomes a hindrance from Allah, that's when dunya becomes bad. Allah the jolla como Allah if you're Asha, Allah, the very one who made this earth for you like a car carpet was summer Urbina. And he made the sky like a
roof like a canopy, onesie. lamina, Santa Eema. And he sent down from the heaven, or the sky. Now whenever we say heaven, you have to keep in mind we're not talking about heavens as in paradise. That's when we use the word Jannat. Right? Sky is in Old English translated as heaven, right? And that's why a lot of the translators that continue to translate it like that. But this is referring to the sky. It's not referring to the heaven in a sense that it's referring to Paradise, Eleni gyla, como Allah, Russia, the one who made for you the earth into a carpet like a carpet, and he made the sky like a roof.
And He is the One Who sends down rain from the sky, causing fruits to grow as a provision for you. But Acorah JB him in a third, Marathi this Polycom, fella tenger alula He and Dadda bass he said, ashba do not make equals to Allah subhana wa Taala do not consider things similar to Allah, Allah is unique. Les second with the day, there is nothing like Allah. Allah subhanaw taala is unique in every which way in his existence. Allah is unique in the way Allah sees. He's unique in the way Allah hears. He's unique in the way Allah subhanaw taala chooses to create things he's unique Allah is unique in every which way.
And this is one of those ayat which is used to understand the uniqueness of Allah azza wa jal because when Allah says Fernanda Hello Lila, he and Dadda do not make equals to Allah ignore Abbas, he says, and then a Ashburn don't consider anything similar to Allah azza wa jal. Allah is different in every which way. And that's why some of them they say that whatever comes in your brain could Luma ha
Oribi barlick whatever it comes in your mind for Allah who will be fina Fidel ik allah is going to be different than that. So you can't imagine ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada Fela tenger alula He and Dada. Do not make similar Toots to Allah don't make anyone similar to Allah don't do equals to Allah will enter into Allah moon and you know better anyways but you do it nonetheless, you end up making equals to Allah sometimes in divinity, you end up making equals to Allah sometimes in creation, you end up making equals to Allah, sometimes it worshipping. And all of this is happening. There are people who make equals to Allah in worship, and they worship that created while they have the
opportunity to worship the Creator, want them to Allah Moon deep down inside guys, you know better, you know better. And by the way, the fact that Allah is saying, what entombed Alamo and he's talking to the entirety of humanity. This is Allah speaking to people and Allah knows people better that, for the most part, humanity recognizes that God is different. For the most part, humanity recognizes that there is a supreme being which is unequal to everybody else, nobody is equal to Him, there is a supreme being who is completely unique. This is something that humanity generally recognizes.
they, some people they do not wish to agree because of arrogance. Even those who sometimes disbelieve in God as an entity, they will say, there's something behind all of this, but we don't have a real name for it. Right?
There's something behind all of this, but we don't really know what to call all of this. And even atheists, if you really get to the bottom of it with them, they will tell you, at the end of it all, I need a miracle. Okay?
They will explain to you the process of this creation. And they'll keep going back further and further and further and further. But then when they get to this big bang, and what was before that, they will say, at this point, I need you to give me one miracle, you guys want so many miracles? We just need one.
So we say no, no, no. This miracle that you're talking about. This is Allah creating, and he is the uncreated. Okay, they always have to go back to this because essentially, no matter how much you explain things scientifically, you will have a problem. Why? Because if you consider things to be uncreated, then there will be a sequence of events that has no end.
And that's eternal regression of causes. And that's considered an impossibility. So at the end of it, you're always come to an impossibility. And that's why you need a miracle to make the Big Bang happened at least. And at that point, they'll say, this is the one miracle that we need everything else we don't need after that. But we say, well, this one that you're talking about, this is God, this is Allah subhanaw taala this is what you deep down inside, no, but you because of arrogance, don't want to accept we're in quantum theory be man Zelena. And now that Allah has established the existence of God Himself, in the previous verse, he goes to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And
he says, What in quantum theory, mana Zina, Allah, Dena, and if you have doubts, so the Quran actually addresses all of these problems, right from the beginning of the Quran. Allah first establishes his existence. Now he goes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says, If you have doubts about what we've revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what we revealed to our servant, to be sold out immediately. Bring us one surah like it. Now Allah makes a number of challenges in the Quran. One of those challenges is bring a Quran like it and other challenges, bring 10 suitors like it, and other challenges bring one suit or like it. And that's the least of
the challenges. There is another place where Allah Subhana Allah, Allah says, To be Hadith in mimicry, bring speech like it, but the lowest challenge that Allah made was one surah. And this is that one fact to the Surah 10 Min Mythri he bring one surah like the reason why I say this is because sometimes people will say that bring one verse like it now one verse is really small. And the Arabic language you can make a verse so to speak, you can make two words together, or one word together, one word by itself, and you'll have a sentence. And someone could say, well, there's a verse in the Quran, which is so small, I've said this. Wow, how can you say that what I'm saying is
not a miracle? Because Allah has placed the miracle in a surah the least of a miracle is a Surah
or something that is the size of a surah, at least
lesser than that, or just one verse. This is not where the challenge lies because the verses of the Quran, sometimes they're just a couple of words together, sometimes even one word by itself. So how are you going to make a challenge out of that? Right? That's why Allah the least of the challenges that he makes in the Quran is to be Surah T mystery he bring a surah like it was the rule shahada come and call your witnesses, or call your helpers men doing Allah from other than Allah azza wa jal in quantum Saudi pain. If you happen to be truthful in your claim that you are able to produce something like the Quran. If you are in doubt about what We have revealed to our servant, then bring
a chapter like it and call all of your helpers Shuhada truth of thieves witnesses or helpers, other than Allah azza wa jal
if you are truthful, in your claim,
the inlanta Follow and if you're unable to do but Allah knows whether they're going to be able or not. So he says, well under follow and you're never going to be able to do it anyways.
You're never going to be able to bring a suit or like the Quran, some people tried and they made horrible attempts, and they made a joke out of themselves. One of them wrote a surah about a frog. And the whole suit was about the frog. Yes, it sounded very rhythmic, like the Quran. But the problem was, it had no meaning. The thing about the Quran is it has no pattern, it has no meter, but even then it has a rhythm. And with the rhythm, the Quran still has meanings, those three things coming together is very difficult. Because normally to have a rhythm, you have to have a meter, but the Quran has no meters.
And that's something that is there in poetry in almost all languages. Arabic has meters ODU also has meters Persian has meters as well, the different languages poetry has meters.
Even English has meters, by the way. And so there's no meters in the Quran, that the poetry that the poetic nature of the Quran is flowing with, but it's still poetic, it's still rhythmic. It's still beautiful. And with that beauty without the rhythm, there's still meaning attached to it. Someone tried the imposter prophets tried, others tried as well, but they failed very miserably. So Allah subhanaw taala says if you're unable to do well learn to follow and you will not be able to do further canal then you should be afraid of the fire that I'm telling you about in this Quran. Allah to you according to her NASA will haidara the one the fuel of which happens to be people and stones.
Some of them will facility in they said the sulfur stone because it's very, very flammable.
What we'll do when NASA will hijack IRA or a deathly ill caffeine, it has been prepared for the disbelievers. It has been prepared for the disbelievers those who disbelieve Now, that doesn't mean that people who are Muslims will not go to the fire rather that is true, they will also go those who are philosophy and those who are people of disobedience to Allah subhanaw taala not everyone, Allah can choose to take whoever he wants and forgive them because of maybe an intention they had because of the Mercy of Allah, because of whatever Allah chooses. However, however, some believers will go to the hellfire, they will be cleansed and purified and purged of their sins, and then taken out of
the hellfire and brought back to the Jannah but the people that will remain there in forever are those who disbelieved in Allah subhanaw taala and some who disbelieved, but the message never came to them, or they happen to be from the people of the fattura. They happen to be from the people who were in a time in which there was no prophet sin, like between a Salah Salem and the Prophet Muhammad wa salam, some of them may also go to Jana as well. But those who disbelieved after the message came to them after it was clear to them that this is the religion. This is the truth. They were out of arrogance that no more they disbelieved and Allah azza wa jal these people have a
guaranteed seat in hellfire well that she didn't live in German or hammy it'll slide your heart and give glad tidings to those who believe and they do good deeds as well while I'm a little slightly hat Anala whom Jannat integrity and Tatiana now they will have Jannat they will have gardens in the in the Paradise they will have Gardens under which rivers flow. What does this mean? This means that it's almost like saying that under their noses, rivers will be flowing because the way the rivers of Jannah have been described is that they flow on top of the land literally
and some of them describe it. And they say they can even flow through different directions meaning through the house of a person as well through the window through the,
through the living room of a person if they so please, all of these are choices that the people of Jannah have, but they don't have any dude. They have no carved space on which they're flowing. They flow on top of land. And that's why I will claim he says, and how to her mean lady Oh dude in gerat Subhanahu Siki her and in fire Bonnie, the unheard of jedna they flow without any barriers that are carved for them. Subhana mumsie Keihan infill Bonnie How perfect is Allah Who blocks these rivers from from overflowing into different directions from causing a failure been
so Allah continues and he says another home Jannat they have Jannat so it's not one garden they have many gardens that dream in the hill and har under them rivers flow, Gu llama Rosie, Omaha, I'm in San Marathi. This can call her the lady whose economic cover every time they're provided with a fruit from these gardens that they see before them. They will say this is the same fruit that was given to us. So it looks the same, it appears the same, but it does not taste the same. What we'll do behemoth a Shabbiha. But what happened is, they basically assumed it to be resembling it appeared to be to them as if it's resembling but in reality the fruit is completely different. In reality,
the fruit is completely at odds with what they have tasted within this world. Willa Humphrey has large Mahara and they will have spouses which have been purified. So the things that are disgusting in your spouse within this world, those things are not there. Those things are not there. So there is no using the bathroom in Jannah. If you feel disgusted by that your spouse is in Jannah will not have that. There is no menstrual bleeding in Jana, there is no cleaning your nose and Jana, all of these things that can discuss the person from the opposite gender Allah has purified beings of this in Jana Wallah whom fee has larger Mahara and they have spouses which have been purified and
cleansed of anything a person may find not so pleasing. wahome Fie her Holly dune and they will remain in this Jana forever and ever. So there is an eternity after this. There is an eternity. Jana is eternal. Hellfire is also eternal. They're both created now, but they remain forever and they're eternal.
Some people they believe Hellfire is not eternal, but we say that Hellfire is said to also be eternal within the Quran. So Jana is eternal and hellfire is eternal as well. Well, homefree ha Holly Dune, so those who go in Jannah, they will remain there and forever those who go in hellfire, those who believe they will be taken out everybody else will remain there in forever as well. In Allahu Allah, your Stephie and your buddy by methylene. Now Allah defends the parable that he struck.
Allah defends the parable He struck in Allah, Allah yesterday. Allah is not shy, or Allah doesn't shy away from striking a parable of a mosquito or anything smaller than it.
Allah does not shy away from striking any parable, Allah can take an oath by whatever he wants, Allah can strike a parable by whatever he wants, he has created this universe. So he can choose to make whatever he wants a parable and make whatever he wants, wants worth worthy of his oath that Allah subhanho wa Taala takes, he doesn't shy away from striking a parable of a mosquito. It's so small, one may say, why would you strike a parable of this but it's very technical. If you look at how the mosquito works and how it operates, you realize why Allah says something like this thermophilic Aha, and whatever is above it as well. Allah doesn't shy away from that. Okay, now some
people they literally took this and they said, whatever is above the head of the mosquito and others they said whatever is lesser than it, this is the seed of some of the early more facility from Africa isn't whatever is lesser than it in size, okay?
Meaning, whatever it may be, if Allah wished he could take an oath by an atom if Allah wished he could take equal strike a parable by an atom as well for Emma Lavina Armano. So yeah, Allah Mona and the whole help will never be him. As for those who believe they realize that these parables that are coming from Allah, they are truth from Allah. He just struck two parables, right? So he's defending the concept of parables in the Quran.
So he says ask for those who believe. They realize that this is true from Allah so they accept it. As for those who disbelieve for your own Luna mother or the Allah who we had Emma Fela, they say, why is Allah trying to strike these type of parables? What does this mean? This is speech that is figurative. It doesn't make any sense. I don't understand it. But Allah says those who believe they realize that these are parables from Allah, they're not normal parables. They're deep. And that's why the parables of the Quran, they are very unique. What do I mean by that? What I mean by that, is that the parables of the Quran, they are divine, basically parables. And that's why sometimes I've
explained these two parables in one way, you're gonna find another explanation. A third one, a fourth one, people will look at these parables everyone will find an angle of relation to the actual meat of the matter that maybe I didn't mention, maybe someone else did mention, maybe a third person didn't mention, because these are parables divine in nature, they are as perfect as parables come, every angle of the parable of the Quran is relatable to some angle of the, of the thing that Allah is trying to scrape the example for. So here for them when I feel okay, and if you literally break the breaking down, every angle of those two parables will be directly related to some of the angles
of the of the, of the lives of these wonderful pain of these hypocrites, right? And this goes for all of the parables in the Quran as well because they're divided nature. Allah knows exactly what type of parable to strike and what to choose. So as believers, they admit this, they accept this they realize this is truth from Allah, it is from their Lord. As for the disbelievers, they say, What does Allah want to say by all of this, you will do lubi he cathedra Allah, God, Allah leads people astray, or Allah allows people to go astray, and lots of people because of these parables, and also because of the Quran. Well, yeah, DB he cathedra and Allah allows people to be guided as
well. Allah guides people through these parables, and also through the Quran as well.
So some people are guided and some people are misguided. It's the same Quran. The Quran can lead to guidance, and it can lead to misguidance as well. This is the reality. Sometimes people take the Quran and they take the verses of the Quran, and they understand them in the wrong way. Why? Because they have desires in their hearts. They're not trying to get to closer to Allah, their hearts have other agendas. They were hoping for something else. They have other goals. So they take whatever they want to take from the Quran and leave whatever they want to leave from the Quran. They don't focus on what the Quran is saying they focus on what their minds dictate to them. So Allah can
sometimes guide people from this Quran. And Allah azza wa jal allows people to go astray because of the Quran or the parables as well. And then he says warmer but then that doesn't sound fair. So Allah says, Hey, Wilma, you will live up in Belfast again. But the ones who Allah allow us to go astray through the Quran, or the sinful ones. So when you're dealing with a sinful human being, and they go and look at the Quran, the likelihood that they will be guided by the Quran is lesser. So what do I mean by this? This sounds antithetical to the entire thing, the entire idea of the Quran, right? Because the Quran is supposed to guide people to be becoming better. But then there are those
who approach the Quran. They want to understand what the Quran is doing. They're doing scriptural scriptural studies, for example. But their goal is not to gain guidance from this Quran. They're going to continue smoking, they're going to continue partying, they're going to continue doing all of these things. And I really mean what I say here, there are people who are professors of the Quran, they do every evil that you can think of, but they're professors, right? They spend their whole lives studying this Quran. But because their goal here is not to gain guidance, it's become a trade for them. It's a job for them. They're simply trying to, you know, understand it because it
buys pays their salary, it pays their wages. This is their goal. Their goal is not to get closer to the words of Allah azza wa jal through this. Then there are also those people who maybe they have agendas. They are not close to Allah azza wa jal, they're reading these ayat, so they're living duality. They're basically minimoon ascertain. The reason why I'm not saying completely Moroccan is because maybe they have some belief in the heart as well. Right. So those people will be misled. Piety will allow you to understand the Quran in a way that
leads you to Allah subhanaw taala woman you will live up Ill facilely Alladhina Yun guna Had Allah him in bed me therapy. Now Allah explains why these passive pain. Who are these disobedient people who go astray when they read the Quran.
Allah says though those are the ones who break Allah's covenant, after it has been confirmed. They know the verses of Allah but they continue to break the covenant of Allah. They know what Allah wants from them, but they continue to toy with the verses of Allah. They break the covenant with Allah, after they have confirmed it.
While Kota onomah Allah who will be here, and they break the ties of kin and other relationships that Allah has commanded them to uphold. Well, you see do nothing earth and they spread corruption within the land. They cause corruption within the land as well. Hula Iike human hearts, Iran. They are the ones were the true losers because they had access to the Quran. They had access to guidance, they already affirmed their oath with Allah subhanaw taala. They understood what Allah wants from them, but they chose to break that oath. Nonetheless, in all cases, they wanted to continue to break this oath with Allah subhanaw taala Allah says they are the ones who are the true loser.
Here for the full moon of Allah. Now Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, How do you disbelieve in Allah? subhanaw taala How do you disbelieve in Allah? Or quantum and water?
And other one of the proofs for the existence of Allah subhana wa jahana. How do you disbelieve in Allah, when you were dead, you are completely dead.
Meaning you are lifeless, this is before you were created. So this is before human beings were given life before this initial Gula happened before the creation that we're living through happen. So Allah says, How do you disbelieve in Allah when you were lifeless? And then he was the one who gave you life?
So Allah is saying, If I could give you if you came, that should be enough of a sign that there's something behind all of this, where did you come from? This entire humanity? Think about it, where did it come from? If you keep going backwards, if you think that there's an eternal regression of causes, then you will come to know and and today will never happen. So you will have to eventually say to yourself, that if things don't end, at some point, at some being, then today would never happen because there will be eternal eternality or eternity in the past. So Allah is saying that you were dead at one point and you came about the fact that this world came about the fact that human
beings became alive. The fact that you see this Masjid over here, there must be something that started these, this don't domino effect, right? All of this must have been started by someone. Jakub, so Allah is the One who gave you that life. Because you can't seem to figure it out otherwise, through my you need to cope, then Allah will take that life away as well. That's the death that all of us will go through. So may you II come then Allah will give you life and other time and the person who could give you life before he could give you life again, Zuma, LA, he told German and then he will be returned back to him. So the fact that you cannot explain the past except
by saying there must be something behind all of this. Remember that in the future, you're going to be meeting that same being that you had to come to terms with when you start started thinking about your past, the mighty lady towards your own, then you will be sent back to Allah you will be returned back to Allah.
Who will let the Halacha Allah come? It is He it is Allah. He is the One who created everything in the earth for you halacha chromaffin of the Jamia and He created everything within this earth for you through muster wa in a summer. Then he turned to the heavens or the sky Fussa wa Hoonah Saba Osama what, then he he made them into seven layers of skies or heavens.
Now, here, if you see
Allah subhanaw taala has the capability to create this entire world immediately. Right? Allah is completely capable and able of that if he wished he could create this entire world and the heavens and everything within it within a second because Allah Subhana Allah Allah says in the Quran in Nama and guru who either are the shaman or coolala, who confer on all the law needs to do is say Be and it becomes that's it.
So, Allah doesn't do that though. Allah takes it in phases. Even another sutra Allah Subhana Allah Allah says to the people in the come letak Furuno Villa the hall
ikonographie Yomi Daddy got me that do you? Whatever you know, and that's a very credible anime that do you disbelieve in your inner Lord, who created the entire world, the earth in two days.
So it took some time. Allah doesn't need to take time. But Allah chose to to take time, because he wants to teach us as well. That whenever you want to do something within this world, that is completely firmly grounded, well done, you need to take time. He didn't do this because he couldn't do it in the snap of a finger. He can Allah azza wa jal, Allah can do it, just simply by saying, going and it becomes, but Allah subhanho wa Taala chose to take the creation of the heavens and the earth in phases. So he shows to us human beings, that when you want to do things within this world, don't be hasty. You have to do it in phases. The Prophet did his Dawa in phases, he spoke to his
family first started going outside the circle, then he went to his people in Makkah, then he started talking to the tribes that would come to Mecca, then he started franchising, franchising all across Arabia, then the dollar went even further, the profits are similar, now started calling all of the nations around the earth.
Because you got to take time, it needs to be done in phases. When you take things in phases, they are better done, they're more you're more able to complete them, and you're more able to come to an end with them.
What is on our books? Now, this is another page. Now, essentially, I thought we will be able to do two and a half pages. But I think that
that's a bit ambitious, we'll have to stick to two pages, I think every lesson in sha Allah, which is good as well, in sha Allah three, three and a half years, maybe we'll finish the Quran that way, a little bit more, and maybe during the Ramadan's, and during the hedger and so forth, we might go faster, so that we can get through faster as well. But I think if we stick to this pace, it's not fast, and it's not slow as well.
But you've just got a low hum for listening or something Allahu ala Sayidina Muhammad in wahala early he was like to be a drain
