00:01:54--> 00:01:57

Allah Subhana Allah Allah said, Baha

00:01:58--> 00:02:39

like many other soldiers in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala starts the surah off with words which are known as an orphan Macatawa, which are known as words that have broken letters in them. And the general theme within these sutras which start off with an herbal Pharmacopoeia with broken letters is that right after these broken letters, Allah subhanaw taala talks to us about the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And there's many, many Surahs right from the very beginning or almost the beginning of the Quran, and if Lamin Surah Baqarah, and many other students throughout the Quran, Parsi mean Kapha inside right before this will have Miriam was also started off with the broken letters. And

00:02:39--> 00:03:26

similarly, this one starts off with that as well. And it has the same theme in the very beginning of its Ayat as well, and that is the theme of the Quran. But before we get into the ayat themselves, surah Taha is a Surah which happens to be a Maki surah. It's a surah, which happens to be a surah, which was revealed in the very early advent of Islam. So much so that some scholars they said this was revealed to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the fourth year after the Prophet heard of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Furthermore, swarupa is a Surah, which Allah Subhana Allah, Allah revealed right after sudo Aetherium Surah Maryam is the 44th Surah In Revelation, and

00:03:26--> 00:03:50

if you notice, it is also right before surah in the Quran, as well. It's the 44th surah in terms of Revelation. And Baja is the 45th surah in terms of Revelation, so they're back to back in Revelation, just as they are back to back in terms of their in terms of their placement in the Quran as well. Surah Pa was another Surah that was a surah that

00:03:52--> 00:04:29

along with the fact that it was in the very early advent of Islam, it actually guided a lot of people, just like the rest of the Quran as well to Islam among those people who are guided because of surah Taha because of the Quran because of this, these particular verses and because of the verses which we'll be studying in this particular lesson as well. The very very first few verses of Surah Pa was a man by the name of Irma will kebab was no mystery. They're no stranger to all of us are marble Hopper, the second caliph, the two people, one of the two people who are always with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abu Bakr and Omar, one of the two people about whom the

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said follow those two will come after me Abu Bakr and Omar. So surah Allah is a really, really powerful Surah it's a really, really unique Surah as well. And the story goes as such there are multiple hubub he had taken his sword up. And after he took the sword of his he wanted to go and go and do something evil with this sword. And he was in search of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But on the way someone came to irmo, hubbub and he said why don't you go

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

Look at your brother in law and you look at your sister, they have also accepted Islam. They have also left the religion of our forefathers. So he said Is that so? Is that true? And the story is quite famous. He then ended up directing his anger towards his sister and his brother in law. When he got to their house. There was hubbub sitting there he was teaching them sort of sort of Baja specifically. So he asked for the scrolls that were before them. And he took the scrolls after cleaning himself after purifying himself and he started reading Baja mountains Allah and Ecole Khurana Rita SHA, Allah that kehlata lemon Yasha. And so when he read these verses, he said this is

00:05:41--> 00:06:20

extremely beautiful words. These are in fact extremely, very, very sweet words and with that are multiple hubub ended up accepting Islam. Allah Subhana Allah Allah says mountains Allah Allah Al Quran, Aleta SHA, these particular verses. To understand them you have to understand the general theme in Mecca during the time of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam. The general theme in Mecca during the time of the Prophet SAW suddenly when the Prophet SAW Selim was still in Mecca before his migration to Medina, was that people were constantly looking for some way to to Nidhi pick out whatever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did. So the Prophet SAW Selim was continuously

00:06:20--> 00:07:00

involved in a calling, and the call wasn't really getting where it would support where it ended up getting later on. When the Prophet SAW Selim had hoped for it to get during that time. It did get there later on within the life of Rasulullah saw Salam. So some of the people of Makkah they started mocking rasool Allah, they said, Allah has given you this Quran so that you may go through distress. You may go through distress, so Allah revealed to him the second verse of sola Baha, Allah subhanaw taala said Man, Xena alagille Quran Aleta Shah, we did not reveal to you this Quran so that you may be distressed. This was the reason for the revelation of this these verses that Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:00--> 00:07:36

didn't reveal the Quran to the prophets of salaam so that he may be distressed because people are giving him this sort of excuse people were give accusing him of this right so Allah subhana wa Tada negated that Allah hasn't revealed this Quran we haven't revealed this Quran that we have royalty, us the royalty, right? Whenever you're in the presence of a royalty if you're going through difficult times within your life if you're going through misery and and distress there's normally ways to cheer you up. Right Allah subhanaw taala once the Prophet SAW Selim to be reminded that he's dealing with the supreme royalty is Allah azza wa jal and Allah subhanho wa Taala is not going to

00:07:36--> 00:08:12

allow him to be distressed. And this also means that when some people today they look at the Quran, and they look at the sunnah to Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi salam, and they think that it's backwards, it's not going to really withstand the test of time and so on and so forth. And the meanings and the guidance is within the Quran within the sunnah to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is actually going to do to bring the people back into the Middle Ages and so on and so forth. The answer is no, no, never, ever. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala revealed this Quran so that people can people may be happy and not so that people may be distressed Allah subhanaw taala he

00:08:12--> 00:08:38

didn't put any ruling within the Quran any belief within His ayat, any belief upon the tongue of His Messenger any ruling upon the tongue of His Messenger, except that it led people it leads people to to happiness and not distress. Allah says mountains are not illegal or analytische. But you know what? There's an interesting factor and that is that some people they use this verse to twist the rulings of Allah azza wa jal.

00:08:39--> 00:09:19

And they use these verses to twist the meanings of Allah's Quran. So they'll say, look, look, look, look, look, look when you give them an idea in which there's a clear verse in which there's an implementation that needs to be done ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is telling it, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is telling the prophets of salaam to deliver such and such message on which is a bit difficult. Okay, which is a bit difficult. People will say, well hang on, Allah hasn't revealed the Quran for distress to override the ruling of the Quran itself. That is wrong behavior because Allah best knows what is it that leads people to distressed and Allah subhanaw taala best knows what leads people to

00:09:19--> 00:10:00

happiness if Allah has given a ruling in the Quran or the prophets SLM has given a an injunction within his is sooner than that, right there is what leads to happiness and not our indexes and our benchmarks of happiness. Allah subhanaw taala says mountains Elena Lake Al Quran Aleta spa, and one of the proofs of what I'm saying is the very next verse, Allah subhana wa Tada says, enlightened Pirata Lima Yaksha. But what we have done is revealed this Quran to you as a third Kira as a reminder for those people who happen to have fear, okay, so this Quran nonetheless happens to be a reminder for those people who happen to have fear, right. And this room

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

Under can be in two forms, it can be a reminder, which happens to be a warning, it can be a reminder, which is simply bringing people close to Allah subhanaw taala encouraging people to do a certain action right in that that cannot eliminate Yaksha. So when you're encouraged to do an action, you have to actually implement something and that is some work you need to do. So it's not that it's all easy, there are some difficulties. Similarly, when you are warned of an action, you are expected to not do that action that means there is some difficulty there and that you have to give consideration to as well. So when people take the second verse of the Surah, out of context,

00:10:35--> 00:11:11

and they say mountains Allah Allah Khurana it Ashkar, Allah subhanho wa Taala has been revealed the Quran so that you may be going through so that mean you may end up going through misery and distress. That means it's just override anything that comes our way in our comfort and so on and so forth. Allah says Allah God kill, it comes to you as a reminder as a warning, it comes to you as an encouragement Lima Yaksha but it only happens to be so for those people who have fear because those people who do not have fear they don't have fear to also not not take the verses of Allah subhanaw taala out of context, Allah continues, then z the man holla can Earth

00:11:12--> 00:11:56

What's up malattie Rhoda. This happens to be a revelation it's coming down to you from the Divine member halacha it's coming to you from the One who created the earth was set out in Rolla, it's coming to you from the One who created the earth and it's coming to you from the one who also created the heavens as well the the the ever High Heavens right a lulu gem earlier Allah Subhana Allah is telling you now that this Quran a it's coming from a royalty mountains. Now we the royal we did not reveal to you this fall on so that you may go through misery. Furthermore, not just royalty Tenzin on, it's coming from down up. And what that means is that if you notice, whenever we have

00:11:56--> 00:11:59

someone that's sitting on a very, very important

00:12:01--> 00:12:44

domain, he happens to be a leader of a very, very important domain. He happens to be or she happens to be a owner of a company and so on and so forth. We say that this commandment is coming from down up that means it's a serious matter. It's not a joke. So take it seriously Tenzin. So it's coming from a higher up authority medmen halacha Earth from the One who created the earth and also was somehow Attila the heavens which are very, very high. Allah continues and he says oh ramen or halal or Shiva, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has been established on the throne of power and dominion. Allah subhanho wa Taala owns all things Allah subhana wa Tada created the earth, Allah subhanaw taala

00:12:44--> 00:13:22

created the heavens, which are the most high. So everything within this heavens and the earth happens to be within the Dominion, the power, the capacity and the capability of Allah subhanaw taala and there's nothing which can escape the power and the capacity of Allah subhanaw taala so when some people they wish to take the laws of other creatures and other creations of Allah subhanaw taala and believe within their hearts that these laws and these injunctions and these so on and so forth, bylaws and so forth, they happen to be greater than what Allah subhanaw taala is legislated. Allah wants you to know that Allah is the One Who created the heavens in the earth, Allah is the One

00:13:22--> 00:13:59

who over powers all of these things Allah is the One who has the Dominion and all of these Allah Subhana Allah Allah is the One who has all capacity and all power within this, all of this and Allah has not revealed to you the Quran or people so that you may go through misery and distress or either loss of Allah will lead you to happiness, ie those injunctions that Allah gave you in the Quran, they will be the ones that will give you happiness within your life. And they are the ones who should should be the in the minds of a believer in the heart of a believer they are the ones which which should have the ultimate authority at the end of it all. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu

00:13:59--> 00:14:38

alayhi wa sallam he said in a hadith Lapa, I tell him loop and female see it in Harlem, there is no obedience for a monk No, there is no obedience for a creature from amongst the creations of Allah subhanaw taala in the disobedience of Allah, Allah Buddha is at your channel. So if Allah subhanaw taala is being disobeyed, then we do not obey any of the creatures of Allah, no matter how great and how powerful they may be. Allah continues and he says, We're interchangeable pole. For him now Jana was Silva. One of the things you will see that Allah subhanaw taala. When he speaks, he speaks in a very, very organized way. This doesn't mean there have there's always chronology within the words of

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

ALLAH SubhanA wa taala. But there's always a pattern that you can see what I mean by that is that sometimes events may not be chronologically mentioned. And as we know also from literature, sometimes chronology is not the best way to get the message across as well. Right? Sometimes if you notice author start off in the middle of the story and then they go to the beginning suddenly, right

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

And there's a reason for that, because that can be rhetorically powerful at times. But sometimes criminal chronology is also there as well. And this is one of those cases Allah subhanaw taala says, we're intelligent how to build code

00:15:13--> 00:15:24

ascension or descending order as well. Allah says we're in touch how to build out if you explicitly express yourself, if you speak very, very loudly, right?

00:15:26--> 00:15:49

If you speak very, very loudly and then after the loudness, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada goes to a secret speech right? The secret secrets that you spill to one another Allah den says for India who Yalom was Silva well, so Allah subhanho wa Taala knows the secrets the secrets that you give to people, right well, and those which are even more secret than the secrets themselves, right. So the first

00:15:50--> 00:16:31

way of speech that Allah mentions that he says he knows of is first and foremost a speech which you speak out loud, or clearly expressed very, very, very, very obviously, right? So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has knowledge of that, that Allah subhanaw taala says, fit into who we are Allah. And Allah knows the secrets and Allah knows those which are even more secret than them ie those which are hearts in your chests conceal. So Allah knows the speech, Allah knows the secrets that you say to one another privately and Allah Subhana Allah knows that which is within the heart as well. And Allah subhana wa Taala doesn't tell you that he knows the speech that you say out loud, okay.

00:16:32--> 00:17:08

Because that is very obvious, when he tells you he knows the secrets, and he knows those which are also with concealed within your hearts as well. If he knows the secrets or IE those things that you say and do within your private times, those things which you do and say within secrecy, and if he knows even further those things, which are hard to conceal, which are which are even more secret than the secrets themselves, that obviously Allah subhanaw taala knows those things you are very, very clearly this is the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala so he knows all of these things. And that way, we can be reminded of the beginning of the verses as well mountains and now alagille Quran

00:17:08--> 00:17:43

elite Ashkar we did not reveal to you the Quran, so that you may go through misery because some people happen to have this idea within their mind or within their private conversations or within their clear words as well that hey, the Quran, you know, it's backwards, it was meant for a certain time it's meant for certain century and now we need a spiritual revolution. To really understand the Quran as if the Prophet didn't understand the Quran. The Companions didn't understand the Quran, those who follow the Companions, they also didn't understand the Quran and we are now redistrict rediscovering the words of God. Allah subhana wa Taala says that Allah knows your speech. Allah

00:17:43--> 00:17:53

knows what you say privately or even if it's simply a thought within your hearts enlightened kiloton demon, Yeshua. And Allah continues and he says, Allah hula, Allah Allahu

00:17:55--> 00:17:56


00:17:57--> 00:18:43

La ilaha illa who there is no God except Allah subhanho wa taala. So Allah is the One who there is no God except Allah Himself, except who accept Him himself. Level Esma will husana Allah Subhana Allah Allah has the most beautiful of attributes. So if you really truly want to get close to Allah subhanaw taala. And if you really truly want to understand the power and the care with which Allah has crafted the Quran, which with which Allah subhanaw taala has crafted his creation for which Allah has revealed the Quran. for things to be orderly within this, then you should know the names and the attributes of Allah subhana wa Taala you should know those beautiful names a smile, and

00:18:43--> 00:19:24

hearse now the very, very supreme and beautiful names. And when Allah says a smile on Krishna, he's not just saying the beautiful, and Krishna is a term, which is the feminine of accent, okay, and what that means is extremely beautiful, the most supreme, the most beautiful of names. So the most beautiful of names happen to be the names of Allah subhanaw taala. And you know, when we give a name to one another, we just give a name, just because we love that names, so to speak, but Allah's Name X names actually have meanings, every single one of them. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, an authentic tradition in that Eli, this earth and what is really this

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

man, when I saw her the whole agenda that Allah subhanaw taala happens to have 99 names, whoever is able to encompass these names of Allah subhanaw taala he will enter into Jana. So Allah has these beautiful names if you encompass them and what that means is if you understand those names and implement those names, within your live lives as well, so the names of Allah subhanaw taala actually having many of them actually have a human implementation that's possible within it as well. What that means is that you notice that Allah Subhana Allah is a Rahim. Allah is the Ever Merciful Allah is Allah

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

Allah is the most merciful, you notice that Allah is the epitome of mercy. You notice that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who delivers his mercy to others as well right. So when you see that quality within ALLAH SubhanA, WA Tada, you know that quality is a good quality. So you try to inculcate you try to understand that quality and you try to implement it within your life as well. And you give that mercy out to other people and that will allow you to gain the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is found in the Hadith as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Rafi Munna, Yahama Rama, that people who have mercy, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has mercy upon

00:20:38--> 00:21:18

them as well. It'll have more women fill out your Henkelman for Sama, have mercy upon those who happen to be within the earth, Allah, the One who is within the heavens will also have mercy upon you as well. So Allah's Messenger then said, that those who are Merciful, the Most Merciful will have their mercy, His mercy upon them. So he's trying to allude to two things, a, when you see a quality that is good, that Allah subhana wa Taala has chosen for himself within His names, that normally not always, normally, this quality, in some very limited finite way can also be implemented within the life of human beings as well. So you take that quality, and you try to bring it out

00:21:18--> 00:21:58

within your life. So you end up manifesting this quality that Allah subhanaw taala had deemed beautiful within his beautiful names. And moreover, when you do so ALLAH SubhanA, Allah will also give you a portion of that quality and give you a portion of his care from that quality as well. So if Allah is Allah, you and Allah is the caretaker of all of the world, Allah is the One who is who is not in need of anyone, he is self existing without a need of anything else. And he's the one who is taking care of all of other existence as well. So you end up taking care of some of the people that are within your care, Allah will take care of you as well. And this is found in a hadith as

00:21:58--> 00:22:25

well the prophets I send them said, mankind if he only He can along with your only whoever happens to be within the health within efforts to help his brother Allah subhanaw taala will help that person as well. Allah continues and he says, Allahu La ilaha illa who Allah there is no God except Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Himself. Now who Esma will personna ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has the most beautiful of names.

00:22:26--> 00:23:09

Well have a darker Hadith and Musa and did the news of Musa alayhis salam come to you and be Israelite Allah, the news of Musa alayhis salam, we will be discussing within subsequent episodes of this particular Surah Bismillah this surah Allah subhanho wa Taala has divided into a number of different categories. So Allah subhanaw taala first and foremost talks about the Quran itself. So that's the first mcta Or the first portion of this surah then Allah subhana wa Tada talks about two aspects of the story of Musa Elisa, one of those aspects we will be discussing in our next lesson in sha Allah are part of that one aspect. And then Allah subhana wa Taala talks about a number of

00:23:09--> 00:23:45

different aspects of after the two stories of Musa alayhis salam are two aspects of the story of Musa alayhis salam, right then Allah will talk about the omal Tiama and some of the fears related to that, then Allah will bring it back to Adam and Islam. And then there will be the conclusion of Surah of the surah. So you have about four or five depending on how you want to divide the syrup four or five themes within the surah. Okay, it could be for if you join the two Sutras of Musa alayhis salam or it could be five, if you separate the two stories of Musa alayhis salam and Musa Ali Salam is the most mentioned Prophet within the Quran. This surah happens to be one of those

00:23:45--> 00:24:25

Surahs which is in fact a very exceptional in the relation of of the story of Musa it has one of the longest relations of the story of Musa alayhis salam so much so that the surah is called Surah ba it's also called Surah Musa itself. It's also called Surah 10 claim as well what sort of claim I can name Allah the one who spoke to Allah subhanho wa Taala right so it's a surah very, very particular to Musa al Salaam and as we said in the lighter Allah in our next lessons, we will look at the surah story of Musa Ali salaam just Dr. Malone, Karan are some of the Allahu ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali he also had big Marian was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
