Okay, just trying to help you. So when do you begin your fasting?

00:00:18 --> 00:00:19


00:00:24 --> 00:00:35

You sure? Yeah. Don't Don't Don't let my facial expressions or my infrared pointing at sunset. And we got to be sure what was right. Exactly, exactly. It's sunrise. Right.

00:00:37 --> 00:01:13

So basically, when you see on your Advan clock, you see when it says Fajr time, when the time comes in is when you start your what? Fast? Mind you, we're going to cover this in prayer, but you're going to see something called shuttle, it's basically sh you are UQ or it's an Arabic word, Yanni. That means basically when the sun has fully risen. Okay, that is going to be roughly around this time. It's not here. Well, it'd be you know, around that time, and that's why they put it there actually. For you to see.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:29

There's a time that is prohibited to pray in general. after the fajr prayer we're going to talk about it don't worry, we're not talking about it. But yes, this is when you start your fast generically speaking. This is when you start your fast. Alright, and when you break your fast Zach

00:01:31 --> 00:01:37

sunset 6pm When you fast What do you abstain from lease housing? Lisandra

00:01:39 --> 00:01:39

when you

00:01:41 --> 00:01:43

know, you're fasting from what?

00:01:56 --> 00:01:57


00:02:01 --> 00:02:02


00:02:04 --> 00:02:05

now we don't say

00:02:10 --> 00:02:11

okay, good, good.

00:02:12 --> 00:02:23

relate the narration or whatever was mentioned to you. Okay, so generically speaking, eating, drinking and intimacy. Okay. Everyone here is? Okay.

00:02:24 --> 00:02:29

Adults here. Okay. So we're talking about what you mentioned.

00:02:30 --> 00:02:47

If it's an action, that is a bad manners, it does not break your fast. So that was incorrect. Whoever told you that is very incorrect. And the reason I'm stressing is very incorrect because especially to a new Muslim. If someone is saying What exactly did they say whoever told you? What do they say? I want to make sure I know

00:02:48 --> 00:02:48


00:02:50 --> 00:02:51


00:02:55 --> 00:03:31

Very incorrect, whoever told you that was wrong. And I mean, I need to be very stern on that. Because especially for a new Muslim. And this is why I take into high importance that we make an effort Muslim, seasoned Muslims and mosques to teach new Muslims because you're coming into a whole room, you know, a community of different nationalities, different experiences, different ways of expressing oneself. But there's one thing that unites us, and that is what we're taking what we're learning now. And you don't want to be Muslim. And you know, you come in the house and your mom yells at you actually take that thing off. Right? Like, Mom, please.

00:03:33 --> 00:03:50

My face is broken. I gotta make it up. But I have a job. I have a child, I have this. You have to make the faster because someone told you just wrong information. No, doesn't break your fast. Okay, so What? What? you abstain from eating, drinking?

00:03:52 --> 00:03:53

Intimacy, okay.

00:03:56 --> 00:03:56


00:03:58 --> 00:04:20

that's what's very important for us to know what breaks the fence. So here when we're talking about, we're talking about during the day, that's what you abstain from at night, those three things you can indulge upon. Okay, as soon as the event is called. Now remember, we talked about what what do we talk when we mentioned the time for the prayer and the time that you may see on the clock?

00:04:21 --> 00:04:23

So for instance, you'll see Fajr come in at

00:04:25 --> 00:04:31

on your clock, it'll say 636. But then you go to the mosque, and it says 645.

00:04:34 --> 00:04:35

What's the difference? Zack?

00:04:37 --> 00:04:40

I'm sorry, can you repeat the question? So for instance, let me let me give you an example here.

00:04:45 --> 00:04:52

All right, my Python app, right. Right now it's is Fajr

00:04:53 --> 00:04:59

631. Okay, I'm an imam at a mosque up the street in the echo pill.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:03

The prayer we pray at 645

00:05:04 --> 00:05:11

Why does it say 631? And my mosque is 635. Is my community incorrect? Or is the asana incorrect?

00:05:15 --> 00:05:17

Neither explain.

00:05:19 --> 00:05:22

You're still in that time period.

00:05:23 --> 00:05:28

Okay, so why did we choose a different time at 645? Why don't we just to 631

00:05:29 --> 00:05:35

people are they might not be, they could use a different tool, for example,

00:05:37 --> 00:05:39

you're using that is?

00:05:40 --> 00:05:44

That's a calculation. Somebody could be looking at the sunset.

00:05:46 --> 00:05:49

No, no.

00:05:53 --> 00:05:53


00:05:55 --> 00:06:01

would you say before the good, but just make that like you say, the car the place and then drive again?

00:06:04 --> 00:06:04


00:06:06 --> 00:06:06


00:06:08 --> 00:06:30

uh, then everyone, then, then. So if you walk in the mosque, you say, did they call the event yet? That means has the prayer come in? Say you're on your way, you're on 635. And you need to go to Fort Worth. And you want to make the prayer real quick. Because by the time you get to Fort Worth, you got things to do. So you come in the mosque and you see a sister. Yes. Have they called the

00:06:31 --> 00:06:38

yet? Yes, they just call it you can go ahead and bust do your prayer. Do your prayer and go, but the 645

00:06:39 --> 00:06:40

Who knows why before I answer?

00:06:41 --> 00:06:42


00:06:45 --> 00:06:49

Yeah, it's logistical. It's logistical.

00:06:51 --> 00:06:57

Little extra time, so we can get Dallas ready. All right, get in the car, get to the mosque.

00:06:58 --> 00:07:02

We want to make sure that we pray in congregation so let's give people time. Right?

00:07:03 --> 00:07:10

If you're by yourself, it's best to pray when it comes in 631 You go MC with Oh 633 Bismillah.

00:07:11 --> 00:07:12

That's the best way to do it.

00:07:13 --> 00:07:46

From the time perspective, but if you want to pray in congregation which you receive many more blessings for. Right? Then you just you can come here at 636. Come here, sit, pray, and we're going to talk about praying some extra prayers, which is recommended. Right? And then you sit and wait, which is recommended as well during the mosque, which is a beautiful thing waiting for prayer, which is another beautiful thing, then you pray a congregation, which is the beautifulest thing. Right? Okay. So now talking about this verse, Who has who has reached that verse?

00:07:47 --> 00:07:49

Bismillah, can you please.

00:07:52 --> 00:07:55

You are too fast for prescribing number.

00:07:58 --> 00:08:01

Four is on a journey each off fast to make the

00:08:02 --> 00:08:22

other day. Okay, stop right there. Please. I'm going to stop you every now and then. So if you mentioned the first thing is I am not do this, that they're prescribed number of days. All right. So here it's talking about the fasting that we do now is the prescribed number of days. Remember our first lesson we said that fasting was in the wet before us.

00:08:24 --> 00:08:27

Fasting was prescribed in the

00:08:29 --> 00:08:31

nations before us.

00:08:33 --> 00:08:46

So fasting is not an unusual thing. When you speak to a Christian, when you speak to a Jew, fasting is not going to be unusual. Right? Now the amount of days

00:08:47 --> 00:08:55

is what may be different for them. And that's where the Quran says prescribed number of days. Right? And then after that she mentioned

00:08:58 --> 00:08:59

she was sick.

00:09:04 --> 00:09:24

And that's what we talked about last week, which I will show you here. So in this verse, just remember these verses to what 84 To 185 Roughly, we're going to kind of we're going to we're going to cover 25 as well. These are the verses that talk about Ramadan from a legislative perspective,

00:09:25 --> 00:09:27

generally, okay.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:59

So it's going to be upon you guys as you are here learning your religion and this is something please do not take this lightly. Those of your friends that were hesitant of coming, please encourage them to come. Alright, because now you're gonna go home, you're gonna read this. Hopefully you'll go home and read this verse, and ponder over, write and understand certain things and then come back and ask me questions. Right? So this verse in the next verse is paramount and understanding

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

The Foundation, the seed, the origin of the month of Ramadan, along with other verses, okay, but primarily, these couple of verses. So here now she mentioned is the scenario of a traveler or a

00:10:12 --> 00:10:32

sick person there is there are some excuses for certain types of people, we've covered that last week, we're gonna go over. So here, this is what we want to show you last week, I didn't have my laptop, but here, this is the verse that she just read, fasting is on a lemon limit, limited number of days. So whoever among you is ill or on a journey, then let

00:10:33 --> 00:10:35

then an equal number of days are made, this should make

00:10:36 --> 00:10:46

it just a little hot. So here says And upon those who are able to fast a ransom should be given to a feeding, or of feeding a poor person each day.

00:10:47 --> 00:10:52

Right. So this was early in the legislation, that a person that was able to

00:10:53 --> 00:10:59

it was preferable for them too fast. But if they could not, or didn't want to, then they could? What?

00:11:01 --> 00:11:23

Feed a poor person. Okay, so those kinds of people generally are the Elder Lee. Right, they make it up by feeding a poor person, the elderly, or someone that carries the same characteristic, as an elderly person, such as a young person that is in dialysis.

00:11:26 --> 00:11:34

It's a physical, it's a chronic illness, that will not allow them to fast it would be more detrimental to their health, then what?

00:11:36 --> 00:11:58

Then beneficial, right? So Allah is saying here, you know what, you have a similar characteristic to a person that is elderly, that because of their age, their condition, they're not able to fast. So the way you would make it up is by feeding a poor person. Do they make it up? No, but how do they do it? They feed a poor person per day missed.

00:12:01 --> 00:12:04

Is everyone got that? Is what we covered last week, generally? Okay?

00:12:06 --> 00:12:06


00:12:08 --> 00:12:11

So again, they don't have the money or the means necessary.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:30

If they don't have the money or the means necessary to feed that poor person, someone inshallah can help them in those regards, right? And if there's no possible way to do so, in that regard, then inshallah they will be forgiven for that. Or they only say, forgiven, it's not a sin if they don't have the financial stability to do so.

00:12:33 --> 00:12:35

Right, that will?

00:12:36 --> 00:12:38

Well, you mean, obviously, they will be poor meaning

00:12:39 --> 00:12:49

elderly or sick? If the president was elderly or sick, right, right. They will be poor, they will be probably fed themselves, right. So right, yeah. Sharla. Okay. Do you wanna have anyone anyone have any questions?

00:12:52 --> 00:12:56

That you can just feed another person that's not necessarily.

00:12:59 --> 00:13:03

No, it's preferable to feed poor people to feed a person that is not able to

00:13:04 --> 00:13:14

suffice themselves. And again, it goes back to the spirit, right? The spirit is to help someone, as we will learn in the eighth, in the last day of Ramadan, it is obligatory,

00:13:16 --> 00:13:19

that's why they call it the cat's and feta. Feta means to

00:13:21 --> 00:13:45

break something or to clean, you know, to open something, which is allowing someone to giving them food by them breaking their fast or giving it to some poor person that is not able to fast and feed into but therefore the characteristic is poor. So here, again, we talked about this roughly, and whoever volunteers access, it's better for him to fast. So we'll see here that it's better for the person that is able to fast too fast.

00:13:46 --> 00:13:46


00:13:48 --> 00:14:03

It goes a little more in depth. We'll cover that later in regards to what is called abrogation in any case. So looking at these characteristics, we talked about this last week, roughly we can go over it again, Inshallah, but I want to make sure that we move along and shall we can go back to it, I think. Yes. Yeah.

00:14:10 --> 00:14:11


00:14:12 --> 00:14:21

very good. break fast. It really shouldn't be break fast, because that can be understood means that you do not have to fast that day. Right?

00:14:27 --> 00:14:38

Yes, say we're in the third day of Ramadan right now. We're fasting tomorrow, you know, you're going to Houston. When you wake up, you can have your cereal or whatever. It's fine.

00:14:39 --> 00:14:39

Right, Dallas.

00:14:41 --> 00:14:53

Okay. All right. So this is what we talked about. So that's what that's what we mean generally from these types of people, which we will cover a little more in Charlottetown. Is anyone have any questions regarding this government? Okay. So whoever cites the moon.

00:14:55 --> 00:14:56

So then can you replace

00:15:05 --> 00:15:05


00:15:07 --> 00:15:07


00:15:08 --> 00:15:13

number of other okay so the first part before the semicolon here

00:15:14 --> 00:15:16

what does this generally talk about?

00:15:17 --> 00:15:18

We talked about this

00:15:21 --> 00:15:30

the beginning of the month of Ramadan how do we in Islam detect the beginning of a month Zack

00:15:31 --> 00:15:39

the moon so we follow which calendar the lunar calendar right so we detect the beginning of the month of Ramadan by

00:15:42 --> 00:15:43

the moon but how

00:15:46 --> 00:15:48

the crescent crescent moon

00:15:50 --> 00:15:59

right if you see it you know now that's where we said there may be some difference seeing with your naked eye or with

00:16:00 --> 00:16:07

with calculations and this is where the debate I want to say argue but the debate will come in because

00:16:09 --> 00:16:10


00:16:12 --> 00:16:23

listener Lissandra the you know, you know Selena will call them see somebody come how are you doing? Did you go to class today? Yeah, great. Okay. So he fasting tomorrow? Yeah, fasting is your fasting tomorrow? Why?

00:16:25 --> 00:16:40

The individuals in my mosque they we already knew we were going to fast like, here we go. What? My mom said, no, no, no, we have to wait here. We're sitting here right now, right before the mug or a prayer to see the moon.

00:16:41 --> 00:16:42

And you're like, well,

00:16:43 --> 00:16:43

good for you.

00:16:45 --> 00:16:52

Okay, either way is fine. You're going to run into this. Do not split hairs over this. Do not you know,

00:16:53 --> 00:17:09

you know selendy left the WhatsApp group don't do any of that stuff. Okay. None of that stuff. Okay. It's just a simple difference of opinion amongst scholars amongst Who amongst you one more time that's fine. Yes.

00:17:14 --> 00:17:15

The whole year the rest of the 11 months.

00:17:17 --> 00:17:23

Okay, so here we have that's very important because it law says if you ever see the moon and fast Excuse me.

00:17:24 --> 00:17:27

For months, I didn't concern for him. So whoever sees the moon then

00:17:28 --> 00:17:35

then fast now it'll get a little more specific, what kinds of people are allowed to and how many? Inshallah

00:17:36 --> 00:17:42

that's something we could talk about a little later. But most importantly, Well, initially speaking, it's not for

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

any Muslim just to go out and cite it. It should be someone that has knowledge and that is known for their knowledge. And generally, their piety for lack of a better word. Okay? Not better words. That is where their knowledge and piety okay generically speaking any imam of the mosque or someone who has knowledge to go out there and watch it with them and then also maintaining the culture and seeing the nature of Allah and just seeing the beauty of it right Okay, so that's very very important we talked about here okay and whoever is ill on a journey again someone that is Ill then they can make their days up later inshallah Tada

00:18:19 --> 00:18:21

then an equal number of days so the days you miss are the days that you should

00:18:23 --> 00:18:23


00:18:26 --> 00:18:26


00:18:27 --> 00:18:31

now this is important for us because sometimes we will be stressed out

00:18:33 --> 00:18:48

there may be sisters that are pregnant there may be substantive COVID Right in the COVID has lasted and they're in the ICU and they really want to fast and then three months after Ramadan Allah has cured them went on for a while. Okay.

00:18:49 --> 00:18:52

Can you read this please send me

00:18:55 --> 00:18:56

a line for you.

00:18:58 --> 00:18:59

Not a temporary

00:19:00 --> 00:19:06

wants for you to complete and to glorify forgot to repeat

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


00:19:11 --> 00:19:12


00:19:16 --> 00:19:28

Okay, so the first thing is, Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you what? hardship that is an important principle for us in regards to Islam.

00:19:30 --> 00:19:32

Who understands what I mean by that

00:19:37 --> 00:19:44

other obligatory things now, why do I have to Allah knows that I am not a morning person Zack.

00:19:45 --> 00:19:49

Why does he make it obligatory for me to pray at 6:45am

00:19:50 --> 00:19:53

Like before the sunrise is didn't Allah like

00:19:54 --> 00:19:59

we need light, right in order to see so Allah created the sun as light for me to

00:20:00 --> 00:20:02

See to get up and find my sink and to pray and all that good stuff.

00:20:03 --> 00:20:06

So why do I have to pray before the sun comes up?

00:20:08 --> 00:20:14

Or like, you know the sun, it's sunrise more than the sunrise. It's it's not out yet right? It's still dark outside, somewhat.

00:20:16 --> 00:20:16

Now with me.

00:20:18 --> 00:20:20

So why did Allah make that difficult for me?

00:20:22 --> 00:20:34

There are going to be things in your life, especially as the convert, dealing with your non Muslim parents, your friends that you grew up with so many years, and then when you become a Muslim, they act like they don't know you.

00:20:36 --> 00:20:37

Okay, you are the weird one.

00:20:39 --> 00:20:42

God, why if I'm coming closer to you,

00:20:43 --> 00:20:45

you making it more difficult for me?

00:20:46 --> 00:20:47


00:20:49 --> 00:20:54

These are questions that's gonna take it's gonna, this is your human, it's going to happen.

00:20:55 --> 00:20:57

But there are a couple of principles, it's important for us to know

00:20:59 --> 00:21:02

that it's important with in your journey

00:21:03 --> 00:21:08

of faith, and your journey of conviction, you are going to face what

00:21:10 --> 00:21:18

hardship, when you get a job, the first orientation period, you may run into people that don't like you, because you're not part of the clique.

00:21:19 --> 00:21:26

You may be more skilled than them. And they don't like that, because they're of an age, you know, you make coming in young, fresh, you're making less money, you're a threat to them.

00:21:27 --> 00:21:44

So you may face certain hardships. Right? So that's the same situation, someone in this case, you are doing something that is very weird to them. And they're going to look and act as though you are weird. You're human, you're going to feel okay, am I doing the right thing here.

00:21:45 --> 00:22:22

But that conviction that you had in your heart, once you heard that message of Islam, do not do not leave them. Do not do not. Because if you feel in your heart, that God wanted this from you, and you feel that it's true. That is the test that is a conviction. And nothing becomes strong, except through turbulence, there is no way one can become strong, except to some kind of resistance or turbulence. Have any of your study for testing was so hard. But then you pass it and you're like, Oh, God, you feel good, you feel good that you pass it. But then you look at all that hard work that it took, like, Man, I really got through this.

00:22:24 --> 00:22:24


00:22:25 --> 00:22:59

Time and time again. I've heard non Muslim parents. Those are the parents that have embraced Islam with their children. And those that such as my mom have not embraced Islam yet. But they respect and admire the fact that I left off what I was doing, to come in show Glory to God. I don't agree with your way son of you showing glory to God and all that stuff. But I respected some of them. They won't respect it. But what Allah wants for you is he intends for you ease when he does five times a day prayer five times a day

00:23:00 --> 00:23:15

when he wants us to get married and not date for five years, right to get married. Okay. When he wants us to do that he wants ease for you. He intends for you ease. It may not Yes, ma'am.

00:23:18 --> 00:23:22

hardship, but I feel like when you will convert everything.

00:23:25 --> 00:23:28

Like you will see everything.

00:23:29 --> 00:23:31

But it's still like a hardship like everything you do.

00:23:32 --> 00:23:35

Hardship will look to me.

00:23:37 --> 00:23:44

Like, the way you were addressing your family to stay away from renting. So you really so much.

00:23:47 --> 00:23:48

And when do you find that?

00:23:50 --> 00:23:51

Just be

00:23:52 --> 00:24:04

all in all, it would just be a test. It's testing you to see you know, how faithful you are, how dedicated you are to the religion. And then from that with patience and, and

00:24:05 --> 00:24:07

in the willpower to continue it.

00:24:09 --> 00:24:20

There is going to be that moment where everything around you. You stop and you sit back and look at everything in your life. Everything that I went through all the people that I lost, they weren't right from

00:24:21 --> 00:24:54

everything that's around me now. I'm living a good life. I'm happy. I'm not worrying about this. I'm not worrying about that. And from that, that's where the ease that's where everything kind of takes place. That's when your mind is like Okay, thank you Allah. Exactly, exactly. And that hardship that you're facing, that hardship inshallah is going to be temporary, especially if that conviction that you have in the one like the reason you left it off. You love that more than you love. Dare I say the relationship with that friend.

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

It's not going to be easy is it? Just think about this. Is it supposed to be

00:25:00 --> 00:25:00


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


00:25:06 --> 00:25:13

whenever you're truly dedicated to something, you are going to be tested on your level of what? To that thing.

00:25:15 --> 00:25:34

We know that when we think about it, but when it happens at the moment, that's the final frontier. That's the moment of truth. That is the moment of truth. And it's important, we're going to fall short. But you got to remain persistent. So when we say he wants to ease and hardship, this is important. He wants for you the ease that he knows

00:25:37 --> 00:25:42

that he knows his ease, and the hardship that he knows his hardship.

00:25:43 --> 00:25:56

Right? Not your perception of hardship. How many times have we perceive something that was so hard in our lives? After we get through that hump, we look back, you're like, wow, I really thought that was difficult.

00:25:58 --> 00:26:04

I really thought that was difficult, then you say to yourself, Man, I needed that difficulty in order to appreciate

00:26:05 --> 00:26:05

that thing.

00:26:07 --> 00:26:16

Exactly. And guess what? Allah knew that the beginning, middle, and Allah knew that that would happen to you when you're 27, he knew that that would happen to you when you were born.

00:26:17 --> 00:26:50

He knew 27 years later, you would break up with your boyfriend or girlfriend, because they don't like the fact that what you're doing and this Muslim stuff, right, and that you will become a Muslim. And then they will come around and become a Muslim later, and y'all will get married and live happily ever after. I've heard this so many times. I've seen it so many times. So many people I know, it's happened to not to say that the opposite hasn't happened. The opposite has happened. The opposite is happening. The opposite will forever happen. Right? But it's most important, this verse is a good question. So then it goes back to He wants to give you the ease of what he knows is easy

00:26:50 --> 00:26:51

for you.

00:26:52 --> 00:26:57

Not what you perceive as ease because our intellect is complete or deficient.

00:26:59 --> 00:27:15

deficient, we have emotions and we know what that emotion that we have getting angry easily can be detrimental to our future. But we still do it. This shows that we're deficient. Right and we need something greater than ourselves to rely on.

00:27:16 --> 00:27:18

And when you rely on a person

00:27:20 --> 00:27:54

your full reliance is on a person, wife, husband doesn't matter. Priest, Imam No. Rely on Allah subhana wa Tada rely on the one that created you and brought you here. And that is the essence of towhee as a good question. And whenever the questions regarding this is very important record regarding this theme of Lordship, this verse is very important because it really tells you what God intends behind giving you this Islam or we say this Sharia the five times a day there's a cat, the hijab, the marriage in this way, even though it differs with the majority of people are doing.

00:27:55 --> 00:28:03

Right? That's very, very important. And Allah says in the Quran also, what can I say you can much shorter, and your struggle,

00:28:05 --> 00:28:15

your continuation, and movement and persistence in his path is my score it is he's thankful for that.

00:28:16 --> 00:28:29

And the way he was so thanks us in different ways, from your perception, your psychology, the spirituality of ease and Sakina tranquility that you feel in your heart. You know, he grants that to inshallah.

00:28:30 --> 00:28:32

Okay, well we're going to cover today

00:28:34 --> 00:28:36

is something very important for a lot of

00:28:37 --> 00:28:38

I want to say

00:28:40 --> 00:28:43

American Muslims, I'll say American Muslims.

00:28:45 --> 00:28:54

And the reason I'm saying American Muslims are Muslims that are born and raised in America, and do not know any other language. It's important for us.

00:28:56 --> 00:28:57

Who knows what this is?

00:29:05 --> 00:29:11

It's the cave. Yes. The cave here, h AI R A. Is anyone familiar with that?

00:29:20 --> 00:29:29

Yes, the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him. Before he was chosen to be a prophet.

00:29:30 --> 00:29:36

He was known as a righteous, righteous, trustworthy person.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:50

A righteous they used to call them Sadiq Khan. I mean, he was a truthful, trustworthy person. If you gave him something, and he told him hold it person to my time he would hold it and he would give it back to you.

00:29:51 --> 00:29:56

That's what he was known for. So he was even even the Kaaba

00:29:57 --> 00:30:00

to black, the black building, just a black stone

00:30:00 --> 00:30:06

on it. Okay. We'll learn more about it the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him was chosen to

00:30:07 --> 00:30:11

handle the logistics regarding the placement of the Blackstone

00:30:12 --> 00:30:26

because the tribes, particularly two of them, were arguing on who is going to take this Blackstone and place it there because it was still a righteous, the Kaaba was still a righteous sanctuary, even before the advent of Islam.

00:30:27 --> 00:30:32

You know, the Kaaba is the black building, okay? Because it was built by who?

00:30:33 --> 00:30:37

Abraham and his son Ismail during Abraham's time.

00:30:39 --> 00:30:43

Okay, so, the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him Muhammad.

00:30:44 --> 00:31:24

He was known to be righteous and treat and truthful. One of the things he would always do is he would go to this cave, and he would worship a deity, he never worship more than one God, he was never a polytheist. Even before the revelation came to him, there were some companions disciples during that time from the Arabs during his time, some of them were never polytheists. They just couldn't get down with the polytheistic practices. They didn't worship idols. They always said that there's a God out there. And that's who I worship. Muhammad Salatu was Salam he's supposed to be one was one of them. So he used to go to this cave and what is in Arabic got to get to heaven, if he

00:31:24 --> 00:31:29

would always just sit and ponder and call and just sit and ponder and call on his maker.

00:31:31 --> 00:31:34

Right? When he reached the age of 14,

00:31:36 --> 00:31:50

this is when something happened. Okay, so he used to go to this cave and he used to ponder, he used to call on the Creator. And that is when he received a revelation in the cave of what?

00:31:52 --> 00:32:00

Cave of what everyone? Hid. All right, very good, very good. Now this cave is located in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:01


00:32:03 --> 00:32:14

So when he was 40, that is when God chose to give him the revelation of Islam, the first revelation, okay.

00:32:15 --> 00:32:27

That is when God shows now that the process of revelation generally it is from Allah, descends it to Gibreel, which is one of the angels, Angel Gabriel.

00:32:28 --> 00:32:37

And Angel Gabriel sends the message to the prophet or prophets. All the prophets are sent through Gabriel, sometimes directly, but primarily through Gabriel.

00:32:39 --> 00:32:48

This, these five verses were the first verses that were revealed to the Messenger of Allah Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him. Okay.

00:32:53 --> 00:32:53


00:32:56 --> 00:32:56


00:32:57 --> 00:32:58


00:32:59 --> 00:33:01

Can you read these verses please?

00:33:05 --> 00:33:06

Okay, stop right there.

00:33:07 --> 00:33:10

So when the Prophet Muhammad was yet 100,

00:33:11 --> 00:33:15

okay. When he was in the cave, worshiping one God,

00:33:17 --> 00:33:32

a verse came to him, there was a you know, Angel Gabriel, it was mentioned, even before this, right? Angel Gabriel came to him and then when you read the story of it, it's mentioned for Jahad money for our salary. So he kind of squeezed them

00:33:33 --> 00:33:34

and told him to read

00:33:35 --> 00:33:40

ekra Everyone said, one more time. One more time.

00:33:41 --> 00:34:00

If Quran means read, it's Arabic for read. You probably heard it before, maybe not. If not, you just heard it three times now. So Right? He told him read, the Prophet SAW said and said, man, have you caught it? I cannot read I'm I cannot read because the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him could not read or write as was mentioned, you cannot read or write okay?

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

So he was told to read.

00:34:04 --> 00:34:13

And he said, I cannot read. The angel Gabriel said read. Second time, I cannot read. The third time Angel Gabriel said,

00:34:14 --> 00:34:16

If God Bismillah Bica Ledi

00:34:17 --> 00:34:26

hudec. Read in the Name of your Lord who created and what's interesting here. He said, Read in the Name of your Lord, who what?

00:34:27 --> 00:34:28


00:34:29 --> 00:34:53

That's why whenever I speak to non Muslims, I use the word creator me personally. Because that's an even playing field that we get. Because many times when you especially especially when you're coming out your family members, and you're wearing the veil, if you are if you're not right, but you say you're Muslim, they immediately think these kinds of structures, caves and sand and camels. Let's be honest, cave sandal camels.

00:34:54 --> 00:34:59

I don't know. men wearing dresses walking around with big turbans on a camel.

00:35:01 --> 00:35:02

Be honest.

00:35:03 --> 00:35:06

Okay, thank you. Right. So that's what they think.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:40

But when they say when you talk about God, for me, even when I heard about Islam, I was like, okay, but that's that's what I believed the whole time. I believe that okay, but what's different that No, no, don't sell I don't want you to sell anything to me. You know it's not Amway Are you trying to sell something to me at the end of the day because I just thought Islam was foreign. But the more you're talking, the more it sounds like what I've already felt that the one that maybe is the one I should be showing my appreciation to, not to a creation. That's what's so beautiful ikura in the Name of your Lord who created

00:35:42 --> 00:36:00

it's already establishing the one that I'm telling you to read and the name of is the one that created you. Who did you create caught up on insana mandala he created it from a clinging substance. And that's the name of this chapter chapter iLok chapter number 96

00:36:01 --> 00:36:07

Chapter 96 Verse One through Five Do not forget these verses. This is the first revelation that was given to him.

00:36:08 --> 00:36:15

Alright, so he was told to read in the name of his LORD that created what time is 730

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


00:36:21 --> 00:36:21


00:36:22 --> 00:36:24

Lisandro yes good

00:36:26 --> 00:36:28

okay, so keep reading creative man from

00:36:32 --> 00:36:34

recite and your Lord is the Most Generous

00:36:39 --> 00:36:43

so what do you notice here with the verses what is he doing

00:36:47 --> 00:36:50

so one thing he says, I'm gonna give you a hint.

00:36:52 --> 00:37:00

He uses the word created then he does something with the verse after that and then he says most generous and then he does something with the verses after that. What is he doing?

00:37:10 --> 00:37:21

Can see I like to probe your brains I like to really I like to grow the brains I like to ask I like to ask I like to make you feel uncomfortable within feel comfortable because when I answer you like oh yeah, I knew that right

00:37:22 --> 00:37:27

but I like to make you feel a little intimidated which is great sometimes I find me make a face you know

00:37:31 --> 00:37:32

what is he doing?

00:37:33 --> 00:37:34

Say what's on your mind guys? It's okay

00:37:41 --> 00:37:48

he said in the Create a reading and resign that embryo who created in the first after that he does something and he said Your Lord is the Most Generous in the verse after that he does something

00:37:56 --> 00:37:57


00:38:02 --> 00:38:04

keep going establishing what

00:38:08 --> 00:38:09

that's the first

00:38:11 --> 00:38:12


00:38:20 --> 00:38:24

you're almost there. It's a good verb you're using establishing what the

00:38:26 --> 00:38:28

establishing like but he

00:38:30 --> 00:38:32

has like always

00:38:33 --> 00:38:35

the beginning like

00:38:36 --> 00:38:38

be a little more specific as to what you say.

00:38:41 --> 00:38:41


00:38:46 --> 00:38:55

I gave you a hint created most generous. What does he do after the verse after created and the verse after the most generous establishing is a good word but fill in the rest of the blanks.

00:38:58 --> 00:38:58

Think about it

00:39:05 --> 00:39:18

might give you a hint reading the net Okay, so then I read the first verse please. Write use your writing. Okay, go Zack read the first verse. Please keep walking away I didn't want to stop you in your flow. Even though I did stop you in your flow rate you can refloat.

00:39:24 --> 00:39:25

Not to read the first verse

00:39:27 --> 00:39:29

Give me what do you mean created

00:39:32 --> 00:39:33

next verse.

00:39:34 --> 00:39:35

Creative man.

00:39:37 --> 00:39:39

Oh, next verse.

00:39:42 --> 00:39:45

is the most generous, the most generous. How's he the most generous?

00:39:49 --> 00:39:52

Oh, okay, okay, okay, I see what you're getting with this.

00:39:53 --> 00:39:54

What is he doing?

00:40:00 --> 00:40:07

He's giving you proofs. He's establishing His Lordship through two characteristics creation. Generosity.

00:40:15 --> 00:40:16

Okay, so if we say,

00:40:18 --> 00:40:25

Your Lord created, read in the Name of your Lord created, okay, give me give me proof he created, He created mankind from a hanging clot.

00:40:26 --> 00:40:35

Awesome. Oh, that's your God. Oh, the one that created us from from hanging clot and brought us into this world. Yeah, that's my god. Well, that's my God too

00:40:38 --> 00:40:46

Right? Because they'll think your God is someone of the sea or a god of the desert. He has nothing to do with bringing things into existence.

00:40:47 --> 00:41:06

Well, no, no, no, no, we as Muslims believe that our God is the one that brought everything into existence. For example, He brought you into existence. And the way that he did it was through embryology, embryology hanging out, you know what I mean by what they mean by hanging clot, like in gestation when, when a woman has a baby first, it's a blood clot hanging from the uterus.

00:41:08 --> 00:41:28

It says and then the cron exactly fortunately, just some years ago, then the blood clot becomes a local model, and then it becomes a piece of flesh. And it talks about this in other chapters in the crime. So it's just establishing a proof. He's giving you an example, establishing what he means by created, then he's most generous. Give me proof that he's most generous. He taught you when you didn't know anything.

00:41:31 --> 00:41:37

No, no, no, no, my father taught me Excuse me. Excuse me, excuse me. My father taught me who taught your father

00:41:39 --> 00:41:42

the his grandfather, who taught his grandfather,

00:41:43 --> 00:41:45

the hooter who taught him

00:41:47 --> 00:41:51

What is your problem? His great grandfather, this is like, are you okay? So?

00:41:53 --> 00:42:24

You have people that answered that like that, oh, yeah, people are different. Everybody's at their stages, man. You have to appreciate it. So people are I don't wanna say far gone they're just they're not you know into in tune with God and religion but when they entertain the conversation because you know the people you talk to they don't they're not not every person is like your Muslim Zach. I have been wondering about God knows you might be at work you're already just doing over there. I was praying What are you muslim? You believe in the desert?

00:42:25 --> 00:42:26

No, bro slowly

00:42:27 --> 00:42:31

right. So here so generous he taught by the pin

00:42:32 --> 00:42:36

or who taught by the pin taught man which he which he No Not if

00:42:37 --> 00:42:42

the honorable column So here Allah has given you knowledge and the way

00:42:43 --> 00:42:49

that's very important. This may sound too specific depending on all this you know, is it this pin? Is it that no.

00:42:50 --> 00:43:01

When God is talking about generosity, creation, you have to remember in Islam when he associates things that he does, he's getting to the core of the matter.

00:43:04 --> 00:43:07

Right? You ever heard someone when they get an award

00:43:10 --> 00:43:15

call y'all just clap for me just clap. Like I received an award. Like I really received their awards is

00:43:17 --> 00:43:19

they think they appreciate it.

00:43:21 --> 00:43:23

This is a moment for me just gaming

00:43:28 --> 00:43:30

No, no, no, I'm just I'm acting

00:43:37 --> 00:43:45

Are you acting to this is good, brother. It's this is great. No. So they come up, you know, they come up and it right claps he clap against you, Mr. Salah. Mighty Come on. You're gonna get right, clap.

00:43:51 --> 00:43:53

I really appreciate you all coming here.

00:43:54 --> 00:44:01

I want to thank God for the one that has given me this ability. Now, if my teacher that taught me, my father, my mother

00:44:03 --> 00:44:06

are they going to think in their minds full that taught you?

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

Is God God God taught you?

00:44:13 --> 00:44:14

Are they going to think that way?

00:44:16 --> 00:44:18

If they believed in like a deity,

00:44:19 --> 00:44:29

right, they're gonna Wow, good. Because they know ultimately, the core of the one that gave them the ability down the line

00:44:30 --> 00:44:38

to meet you and teach you is God. So that's what we mean by that. That's what God means by the any of his names and attributes.

00:44:40 --> 00:44:42

You're going to hear a lot of names and attributes of God. You can hear the name.

00:44:43 --> 00:44:56

This name is aligning here or Accra. And Kadeem, you heard the name Kareem, Kareem Abdul Jabbar. You've heard the Skyhook pyramids. Basketball player. Yeah. Corinne al Karim is the most generous.

00:44:57 --> 00:44:59

Right Kareem Abdul Jabbar before he became Muslim. His name was Lou

00:45:00 --> 00:45:00


00:45:01 --> 00:45:26

then he became a Muslim and he also Kareem Abdul Jabbar and abdomen slaver al Jabbar means the one that has authority to make things happen without the influence of any of creation for lack of better words. Okay, so here he is the most apcom Who taught by the pin so he taught you that what you did not know. I live in Santa malam. Yalom. He taught him what he did not know.

00:45:28 --> 00:45:30

I'm going to tie this in, and we're going to move on.

00:45:33 --> 00:45:33

Everyone with me?

00:45:36 --> 00:45:40

No, one, what's the connection of this verse?

00:45:42 --> 00:45:44

And verse number two

00:45:48 --> 00:45:52

where's their connection? And I'm gonna give you a hint. Dallas. That's Melanie

00:46:04 --> 00:46:09

what's the connection? Right. And when you think about that connection, be like, Wow, okay.

00:46:12 --> 00:46:14

00:46:20 --> 00:46:23

Hey, guys, okay. Okay, I'm not gonna put you on the spot camera. Look over here. He's like,

00:46:24 --> 00:46:25


00:46:26 --> 00:46:27

00:46:34 --> 00:46:37

if you don't keep on your tight get a little loose. Okay, let's just come.

00:46:39 --> 00:46:40


00:46:44 --> 00:46:45

00:46:47 --> 00:46:52

You what? You what you would say again?

00:46:53 --> 00:46:55

And when you grow you begin to and it rhymes with grow.

00:46:57 --> 00:47:06

No, no knowledge. Yeah, I just want you to rhyme sung a cooler. It's gonna be cool. You know? I got Grace here. But I'm still kind of cool, right? You still? Like what it was like whatever works.

00:47:08 --> 00:47:12

The more you grow you what? No.

00:47:14 --> 00:47:23

Zack has no idea that Zack I mean, Dallas has no idea. I'm calling his name right now. No idea. Give him about two years when I say Dallas is gonna be like this.

00:47:25 --> 00:47:33

00:47:35 --> 00:47:37

Write him out? Yeah, remember you?

00:47:38 --> 00:47:46

Depending on the experience he had with me, he associated it. It becomes knowledge. You understand?

00:47:47 --> 00:47:52

That's why when He created you from a substance as you grow

00:47:56 --> 00:48:00

and that's why it's important for you always to remember where you came from.

00:48:01 --> 00:48:07

Remember that you did not do not and will not have ultimate what?

00:48:13 --> 00:48:27

And then you stop and ask yourself the question like I like I asked my mother. When Katrina happened, the Hurricane Katrina? I said Mom, please let me just ask your mom, mom, self ramaa. Please.

00:48:29 --> 00:48:30

Could Jesus have done that?

00:48:36 --> 00:48:41

Could Jesus have done that? Like, let's just forget Islam. Forget Christianity, just

00:48:42 --> 00:48:45

Jesus? Could Jesus have done that?

00:48:48 --> 00:48:49

Why don't put me in a corner

00:48:56 --> 00:49:02

this verse is giving you the core, the core, the core, the core. Who brought you here? Did Jesus bring you here?

00:49:05 --> 00:49:07

Jesus brought Abraham here and Abraham was before Jesus.

00:49:10 --> 00:49:19

Right? Islam gives you the core. It doesn't give you any human being any creation, none of that stuff. It says the one that did this

00:49:20 --> 00:49:30

is the one that I'm calling you to and guess what, Muhammad? You're gonna get many more of these revelations throughout the period of 23 years.

00:49:32 --> 00:49:33

Remember, these verses is a revelation.

00:49:35 --> 00:49:50

Right? This chapter is longer. But these first five verses were the verses that were given to him when he received the first revelation in his life. This is when he was chosen to be a prophet 40 years before age one to 39

00:49:51 --> 00:49:59

or 40 in a couple of months. He wasn't a prophet. He was just a righteous good person. Why God chose Muhammad Allah knows best

00:50:02 --> 00:50:37

Right. But he chose him. And this is the first couple of verses that he mentioned to him. Okay, so that is March the beginning of Revelation. But I really want you to understand the technique used in the Quran because if you have the opportunity to learn Arabic language, you will enter a whole other realm of linguistic mastery. And that mastery represents a whole other world of understanding the wisdom of God. Like why he chose this verb over that verb.

00:50:39 --> 00:50:41

Okay, like if you say, Okay, I'm gonna go guys.

00:50:42 --> 00:50:43

Alright, I'm going to head out.

00:50:44 --> 00:50:49

We understand its general meaning, right? But in Islam, those are have two different meanings.

00:50:51 --> 00:51:03

If you use a different verb, they have the same general meaning, but it has a different expression when opposed English has it but not not to the level of Arabic or Hebrew or Aramaic. Those three key languages, right?

00:51:04 --> 00:51:12

Anyone have any questions regarding that? So what we took from that slide roughly is very important that the Prophet Muhammad received revelation At what age

00:51:14 --> 00:51:15

14, and he used to go to what cave

00:51:17 --> 00:51:18

here to do what

00:51:21 --> 00:51:23

what's the word that they use nowadays? Meditate?

00:51:24 --> 00:51:25

Here we go there to meditate.

00:51:26 --> 00:51:28

Oh, yeah, meditate, pray. Yeah. You said pray.

00:51:30 --> 00:51:36

He would pray and call on God, you know, the Creator. And that's when God chose to send him the

00:51:38 --> 00:51:43

revelation and the chapter that the first revelation was was chapter number 96.

00:51:45 --> 00:51:56

And God tells him to read or recite, and that re citation is the beginning of Revelation, which marks the beginning of the revelation of the Quran.

00:51:58 --> 00:52:04

Okay, now, Koran Quran means

00:52:07 --> 00:52:09

that which was recited

00:52:10 --> 00:52:12

or revealed,

00:52:13 --> 00:52:15

or read, all of it is one.

00:52:16 --> 00:52:17


00:52:18 --> 00:52:36

Because the connotation in English is different slightly than Arabic. Koran comes from thought I will meet which means to read or to recite, okay? This is not that important. I want you to understand Quran so as the Quran what does that mean? Right? It means we citation or reading

00:52:38 --> 00:52:41

but in the Arabic language is all kind of one.

00:52:42 --> 00:52:47

Because if we get real, eat some illogical like the breakdown of the verb,

00:52:49 --> 00:52:51

you will, you'll appreciate it because generally you appreciate it. Now.

00:52:52 --> 00:52:55

Every word in Arabic

00:52:57 --> 00:53:00

is derived, taken from a verb.

00:53:02 --> 00:53:02


00:53:05 --> 00:53:08

So the word in Arabic here is what? What's it called? What's this called again?

00:53:09 --> 00:53:11

Quran? Okay.

00:53:12 --> 00:53:14

That comes from read Cora.

00:53:16 --> 00:53:19

Cora doesn't only mean read.

00:53:21 --> 00:53:26

It literally means putting things together.

00:53:29 --> 00:53:33

Because when you read, what are you putting together?

00:53:35 --> 00:53:40

If you even want to be a little more specific, what are you putting together? Yeah.

00:53:41 --> 00:53:46

letters, words, paragraphs, pages, books.

00:53:48 --> 00:53:48


00:53:50 --> 00:53:51

The word Bible comes from what?

00:53:54 --> 00:53:55

Biblio Rose

00:53:56 --> 00:53:57


00:53:58 --> 00:54:07

bibliophiles, when you read a research paper, what do you read at the end? Bibliography

00:54:09 --> 00:54:13

Write what you have put together in order to write

00:54:14 --> 00:54:24

that paper. Koran if you want to explain it to someone in general because if they ask I'm just letting you so you can understand. Quran comes from that.

00:54:26 --> 00:54:33

So it's a gathering of words and and and chapters and things that are later recited. Everyone got that?

00:54:35 --> 00:54:37

Yes, no, maybe. So I think there's a guest here.

00:54:40 --> 00:54:46

Right. So that is the meaning of the word Koran.

00:54:48 --> 00:54:50

Does anyone haven't seen any questions regarding that?

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


00:54:57 --> 00:54:59

Can you ask me relevant? Of course not. Yes.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:05

Of course. So the Quran it talks about

00:55:07 --> 00:55:08


00:55:13 --> 00:55:25

So, let's say I didn't know, this is a question that hasn't served as well. So I had, I went to Catholic school taught me about Mary and Jesus and all the prophets.

00:55:26 --> 00:55:28

But then when I came to the con,

00:55:29 --> 00:55:37

the story that they taught me in the Catholic school, they were also in the crowd, they kind of kind of like, relayed the

00:55:38 --> 00:55:46

story. But let's say I've never attended Catholic school, it had no knowledge. How would I know? Like?

00:55:50 --> 00:55:50

I will say,

00:55:52 --> 00:55:52

I don't know.

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

How would you accept?

00:56:04 --> 00:56:06

The contract a little bit harder, like Moses.

00:56:09 --> 00:56:12

journey a little bit from what I was taught.

00:56:14 --> 00:56:16

Know, how would I connect?

00:56:20 --> 00:56:22

Because it's scattered in the Quran, you're saying?

00:56:23 --> 00:56:27

It brings like, a little bit of information. Right?

00:56:29 --> 00:56:37

Right. But in the Bible school, like a whole story chapter, right? Okay.

00:56:38 --> 00:56:47

Right, she's asking the question, like in the Bible, the story of Moses, or stories of Moses will all be one story in one chapter written, and the Quran is scattered.

00:56:49 --> 00:57:01

They say it's, you know, it's the final revelation that some final warning. So everything that was being said, is, you know, it's already been said, everything's already been happened. So everything you read in the Bible, it's happening.

00:57:03 --> 00:57:06

So you learn about Moses, I haven't read all the Bible,

00:57:07 --> 00:57:09

don't take my word for it.

00:57:10 --> 00:57:13

But from my understanding, it's

00:57:15 --> 00:57:41

everything that you read in the Quran is really relates to everything that's already been said. It's relieving everything, it's bringing everything together, and it's providing proofs of, you know, the end of days is going to come. This is my final warning. This is my final revelation. This is me telling you, you know, I've done this people who didn't believe this happen.

00:57:43 --> 00:57:52

Jesus did this, he did that. Everything comes together as a warning for you. That's not like, it's not

00:57:53 --> 00:57:58

him trying to be hard. It's not a lot of trying to be harsh. It's more of

00:57:59 --> 00:58:05

like, I want you to be good. And I want you to go throughout your life, knowing

00:58:06 --> 00:58:18

that I created you knowing that I want you to live an easy life, a happy life. And not to go through these hardships not to go through every wrong turn.

00:58:19 --> 00:58:20

See what happens

00:58:21 --> 00:58:35

to help or so forth. So, in the end, the bronies just that warning, no, you're gonna go back and read the Bible, and you can read every book that's been written, get your knowledge from them, but the Quran it's,

00:58:36 --> 00:58:43

it's summed up of everything telling, but here it is. Somewhat Yes.

00:58:44 --> 00:58:44


00:58:45 --> 00:58:50

kind of an affirmation of what was mentioned in the past. And

00:58:52 --> 00:59:12

I want to say continuation. But it's more of an affirmation of what was mentioned, what you're particularly asking about is the technique in which the Quran relates these stories. Now, when Allah uses these stories, and they're scattered throughout the Quran, it's more of him using these stories to supplement a message.

00:59:14 --> 00:59:25

So whatever he gives you a Moses story of Abraham story of Idris his story is that which is pertinent to the message that he wants to convey to you.

00:59:27 --> 00:59:42

Right, that's number one. Number two, from what we believe as Muslims and understand previous scriptures that were there, there is truth in them and there is that which may, from a reliability standpoint, be compromised.

00:59:45 --> 00:59:47

Alright, y'all follow me on that.

00:59:48 --> 01:00:00

So when we look at certain books in previous scriptures, we may believe that there's some compromise within them. Hence, the revelation and need for a final script

01:00:00 --> 01:00:05

sure to maintain the integrity, of pristine to be pristine and

01:00:07 --> 01:00:15

let's say unadulterated for lack of better words, to ensure the fact that there is a message that has not been

01:00:17 --> 01:00:18

changed or altered.

01:00:19 --> 01:00:27

Okay? Because when we see throughout history, even throughout history, and we could talk about this, actually, the, the, the,

01:00:28 --> 01:00:31

the, the, how the Koran was gathered?

01:00:32 --> 01:00:38

Right? When we look at previous scriptures, you will see the gathering of the scriptures, due to certain

01:00:40 --> 01:00:55

things that happen in the past. We even have certain versions of them. Right? We were asked your questions, why are there certain versions? And certain names are just King James things of these nature? Who is he? And why is his name on a holy book?

01:00:56 --> 01:01:05

What took place in history that caused his name to be on the holy book? What needs or means of power that wanted to be obtained and maintained?

01:01:06 --> 01:01:21

Was anything compromised within that struggle or within that method of the process of the Scripture? So yes, there will be in the Quran and for him, and he says, you know, there is some truth in the previous books and some falsehood.

01:01:22 --> 01:01:59

Right? So when we, for instance, when I talk to my mom about stories in the Bible and things of that nature, she'll I'll you know, some of the conversation be yes. Okay. That was a skirt. Yes, yes. And then I'll say, oh, no, that's we don't we don't, you know, we don't believe that. Yes, we believe that transcends Jesus was healed the dead. You know that, you know, losses will be true, but it will occur, Mohammed abrasca. Anyway, we took region most of it. Right? He says, where if you were to be someone that brings the dead to life, but if you notice in the Quran, when he mentions it, after every miracle of Jesus, he says, Believe me with my permission,

01:02:00 --> 01:02:11

when you heal the lepers with my permission, when you bring the dead to life, with my permission, when you do this with my permission, which brings a very, very important principle about what we just talked about.

01:02:14 --> 01:02:28

It brings you the core of the matter, that everything goes back to the Creator, that the Creator is without the creator's authority, it wouldn't happen. So why do we go to creation, when the creator is the one that gives full authority?

01:02:29 --> 01:02:52

So these stories that you're talking about with Musa Moses and Abraham like and there's a chapter Abraham built the Kaaba with his son, Ismail, you know, he talks about Isaac, as well when he talks about Jesus. Right? All Pacific meshes and yes, it does come scattered. But the scattering is for you to is God is trying to bring a message towards you as opposed to just bringing the whole story.

01:02:54 --> 01:02:54

Good question.
