sacred or holy text.

00:00:03--> 00:00:11

And I what I mean by that is, it's outside of the Abrahamic faith, meaning outside of the Old Testament and the Bible.

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

This story has, has versions in the books of the face in mid Asia. And

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

in Far East, there's

00:00:25--> 00:00:30

some differences, but you find within their books a story that's similar enough, there's enough

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

of pillars of the story that kind of all add up.

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

And the story of Cain and Abel, which is the story that we find in Mount Eden,

00:00:43--> 00:01:24

has a number of dimensions actually a hard story to tell within the timeframe that this this does, has, I need a longer session for it, I'm going to try and tell it in a way that inshallah doesn't go over time, it still allows you the luxury of understanding what the point of it was, and gives you something to contemplate as well and reflect upon because it's a very important one. It's in sort of dilemma. And that on its own requires a little bit of unpacking of why it would be in a shorter, that is literally just a sequence of, of yeah, you have Latina M and it was like 16, or 15

00:01:26--> 00:01:30

clumps of them in a row. Each one giving a command that is extremely

00:01:32--> 00:01:36

important is a part of failure is a part of adherence to the,

00:01:37--> 00:01:54

to the faith in the midst of all these calls of yeah, you already know I'm gonna do this. And yeah, you're living I'm gonna do that. And the sequence of them, you find these two stories and stories, a story of Musashi set up. And when he is still even at the gates of of Jerusalem, you find this story of Cain and Abel. And

00:01:56--> 00:02:14

the reason for that is that sorted it down. It explains the importance of adhering to a contract. It's called actually the Sunnah is called students under the hood, this sort of contract that was named started starts out yada yada, um, and oh, whoa, hold your head little icon behemoth.

00:02:15--> 00:02:44

And the sequence of that in the Quran is perfect, because after the school isn't the foundational sewers in the Quran, like the Bukhara where it can explains the the nature of this way of life. And this methodology and what it means and so it's I'm Ron explains how to maintain it or how to protect it. And then as with a new set, you're given the value system, the ethics and the principles that this system was going to exist by, they're given the details, here's the contract, here's what you're signing up for.

00:02:46--> 00:02:57

And the story of Cain and Abel is exactly that to people who had that contract, and they signed up for it. And, and they made a mistake was made.

00:02:58--> 00:02:59

Understanding that the,

00:03:01--> 00:03:43

the rulings in our deen are actually in keeping with human nature. This is a really important piece, what Allah subhanaw taala explains to us what He tells us to do and not to do is in keeping with our nature, meaning it fits what it is that we are like on the inside. Because if it weren't, if it didn't, then it would be almost impossible to follow me what we're told to do what not to do, helps us maintain our nature as human beings, it helps us protect ourselves as beings and the people around us, which is why the five reservations are found in sorted order. Let's see what family will happily Will. Will, it'll do the five it will do these five preservations are founders with the

00:03:43--> 00:03:53

money to almost extinct instinctively each one on its own. And this story we have in that we're talking about today is talking about Elon neffs the sanctity of human life.

00:03:54--> 00:04:27

And preserving that and you know that it's obvious because of the verses that are coming right up right after the suit I talked about the very, very directly, but the story itself has has a very important sentimental value. And there are different dimensions to it. I'm going to break it down for you into six scenes, I want to consider it a saga considered a Broadway play that you're watching six scenes, at least in the Quran. It is the way more details that you find in the Old Testament into the Bible talking about this story or telling it but the Quran gives you just six scenes, the sick the scene,

00:04:29--> 00:04:40

of the autobahn, of the offering, the scene of the of the of the dispute, the scene of the murder, the scene of the crow, the scene of the burial, and then the scene and you have

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

the scene of regret and in the scene of the of the burial. These are the six scenes that this this story is told through that is seen has its own dimension that requires a little bit of unpacking because very important is the short verses but they're very filled, just very full, very rich. So the beginnings of

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

by him saying Subhanallah I know what to do I know him and recite upon them never have been a Adam the story or the news of the two sons of Adam will help. And but how care has different meanings, meaning it is truthful, the way the Quran tells it, which is, which is one, the other one that that this story is going to, is going to be

00:05:20--> 00:05:43

circulating around the concept of how it's going to circulate one way or the other around around health and the rights of a right of a person, which is the right to live in Colorado, Cordoba. And it goes right into the story when they both ought made an offering no other money history. As far as we know, we don't have concrete evidence in our own

00:05:44--> 00:06:04

teachings for what I'm going to tell you. This is taken from it slightly yet. And so if that means whatever the video is, like you'd have in their books, whether it's the Old Testament, whether it's the Torah, or Talmud, or the NA, or whether you're talking about Gianni the New Testament of the Bible, and it was in the slot I have in their in their narrations and I need

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

I need metal keytab tabula. Now, this is a part of sort of any informal sort of perspective, it is something within our deen that there is permissibility for us to take certain things not i scholars like even cathedral, and Tabari and portobay. And others who told this story will will take from that home the sources to fill in some gaps in terms of context, as long as it does not, as long as this context that we're taking does not cause any any theological or, or Islamic discrepancy.

00:06:36--> 00:06:39

The story as it goes is the automatic use of them and how well

00:06:41--> 00:06:45

we're given children in pairs.

00:06:46--> 00:06:59

And they had their children in pairs, there was a girl and a boy and each each time and the first two, as far as we can tell, it was Bobby, and his sister, and Bobby and his sister, and Cain and Abel basically.

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

And they didn't have children for a little bit of time after that.

00:07:08--> 00:07:22

Times went by before they had a third and a fourth. And in some scholars count up to 2121 pregnancies, which is not unheard of, or not weird, even if you if you if you're marrying young or Middle East people who have more than that even.

00:07:24--> 00:07:31

But the story is that they had they had these children, these four, and then it stopped. Now, a lot of the

00:07:33--> 00:07:48

a lot of the narrations from it slightly focus on the fact that Bobby wanted to marry his own twin because that was against the law itself. The law of Adam on Eastern time, because there were no other people to marry.

00:07:49--> 00:08:33

Then you marry not your twin. You can marry another not your own twin. Now, I don't know. I'll tell you very clearly, I don't know if this is true or not. I can't authenticate it for you. I can't validate this pieces of information. I don't know, is there. It doesn't matter. The beauty of the Quranic stories, it doesn't matter. It completely doesn't matter to the story. Don't I'm telling you upfront because it's my opinions is jargon that just clouds your ability to understand what the story is telling by thinking about okay, it was married. Forget about why. Forget about all these details. Here's what you need to know about the story. You've got to write about Cabana, they made

00:08:33--> 00:09:14

an offering to Allah subhana wa Tada have to compete I mean a Heidi Hema, what I'm used to cobalamin Allah and Allah subhanaw taala accepted from one of them. And the other one did not get accepted to the Quran or the offering they made was not accepted. And this was a known this was understood or known practice in the early in the early ages that I need. Unlike, for example, giving a car right now or some other kind of you would offer you make an offering. The offering would be based on whatever it is that you did. And based on what you gave Allah sponsor either accepted your offering, or it didn't. And one of them hadn't accepted, which is the one who was later murdered, which is

00:09:14--> 00:09:25

heavy on this story or rabl. And the other one Kane or Bobby did not have it accepted. Maybe it was a was a shepherd. And he offered the

00:09:26--> 00:09:50

the most the best sheep he had, basically. And Bobby was a farmer and he did not put up his best crop as an offering. He didn't he didn't choose the best that he had to choose. He chose basically either the mediocre wasn't whatever wasn't very good, good, as opposed to a loss of either accepted from one and not from the other. But and in the narration of the Quran or

00:09:53--> 00:09:54

is that

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

is that who said this was adamantly said I'm gonna Some say it was it was

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

I've been waiting probably have been in the way that these verses work. But in Nehemiah, they'll come but Allah Who, united with

00:10:07--> 00:10:11

this idea, or this piece is probably the most important one in this first scene.

00:10:12--> 00:10:53

This first scene the most important pieces in America compared to La whom inanimate ducking, exclusively is not to emphasize in the most important word. I mean, I always tell people just don't make sure you watch it like if it's there. pause for a moment, because it brings the concept of exclusivity. It's not emphasizing something saying exclusively exclusively, Allah subhanaw taala will accept from the pious, from the Muscatine, from those who have tapped out those who are mindful of Allah subhanho wa taala. Those who when they do things they're thinking through all Taqwa is and to break it down in nutshell, Alta Corp is just that thought of whether this is something that

00:10:53--> 00:11:27

pleases Allah or displeases Allah before you do it. Everything you're doing, are you just wandering in the backyard, regardless of what it is how small it is, how big it is. That's your main goal. Your main purpose is wondering, will he accept this upon whether or not if nothing else, nothing else really matters to you? You don't not thinking about what people may people may perceive this or how people will see it? Or what it will do to you financially? How will it harm you? On an on any personal level? All you're thinking about really is this will this please Allah? Allah? Will this not please Allah Subhana? Wa, that's what that what is that? What is that thought? Always bring self

00:11:27--> 00:12:04

to the front view to the front, you always bring that thought upfront, and then that's the first thing that drives drives your behavior. Basically, it's what you use to make a decision going right or going left is based on whether whether this is something that pleases or displeases ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. But first seen the conclusion of it in Nehemiah dockable, Allahu Minella. MacDuffie. Allah exclusively only accepts from those who when they give, they're thinking about him. They're thinking about their relationship with Him, they're mindful of Allah subhanaw That's what they care about. That's what they're, that's what they're worried about. They are worried about whether this will

00:12:04--> 00:12:37

please or displease Allah subhanho wa taala. And nothing else really matters to them. Maybe even when he gave, that's what he thought of you. How do I ensure that Allah subhanaw taala accepts me, the way I ensures that I give the best I got the symbolic is not just the thing he gave, also the concept that you give the best, what's the best you have? The best you've got? That's what you give, whether it's your time, whether it's your effort, whether it's your emotion, whatever it is, you give the best that you've got.

00:12:38--> 00:12:57

And Fabien thought about financially a little bit. Why does he is offering to God he doesn't eat and he doesn't care? Why would he care about if I gave good grain or bad grain or this is good grain if I sell it, I make and make a little bit more. Allah is not going to eat it anyway. So why give the best I'll give you whatever.

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

Give his best to Allah subhanaw taala as I don't want it, you can keep it

00:13:05--> 00:13:12

because I know it doesn't need it to begin with. The value of it is for sure symbolic to begin with. This is an important piece.

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

Allah subhanaw taala is looking at what what are your What are you offering? What are you offering, if he doesn't benefit either way, offers it adds nothing to him. Whether you give a lot your little the best or the worst and makes no difference. It's all about your intention, and why you're doing it. The sooner or the story filled with aspects of the heart or aspects of what goes on. Underneath this. This story is almost exclusively that it's talking about what's happening on the inside and how you're processing and thinking about think things. And this is important because the early stages of this human experience there we're still struggling with aspects of it.

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

So that's the first piece

00:13:56--> 00:13:59

in a cupboard, low, minimal clean.

00:14:01--> 00:14:02

What's the word after that?

00:14:06--> 00:14:06

No, no.

00:14:10--> 00:14:12

No, no, no.

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

No, no, no, no myself lately.

00:14:22--> 00:14:25

The second scene, the scene of the dispute

00:14:26--> 00:14:27

is an interesting scene.

00:14:28--> 00:14:30

Because when it comes up and says to his brother,

00:14:31--> 00:14:34

he says, luck to learn. I'm going to murder you.

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

Now, so anyone who's a seasoned

00:14:40--> 00:14:47

a serial killer knows that you don't walk up to your victim and tell them up ahead. I'm going to kill you.

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

He doesn't know. Murder had not happened yet. No one had killed anyone yet. Right. Now they would hunt so they slaughtered animals in the heat.

00:15:00--> 00:15:20

Meet but they haven't murdered another human being it's a big thing when you it's a barrier you have to start to take it another human beings life not as it's no joke. We didn't know what he was doing. He made the intention he made it clear this we came up to his brother and told him I'm going to murder you. I'm going to kill you.

00:15:22--> 00:15:37

The answer was the embassy. La yeah Dickory Dock toolani Ma and Abby Basilio de illegally Appa Tula. If you indeed extend your arm or hand towards me to kill me, I will not extend it back to kill you

00:15:38--> 00:16:00

need a half Allah Allah but Allah Amin indeed I have fearfulness of Allah the Lord of everything in Newari to enter boo me what a snake. I want that if this happens that you take you carry the wisdom, you carry the sin of both of us. If you're going to if you're going to do this, then you may you carry the Senate, both of us your dinner, Mycenae, but everyone else having that if you do and that then then the

00:16:01--> 00:16:32

the consequence of that is that you will be from the people of the fire without leakages. That will volley mean, that is the reward or that is the consequence of someone who's an oppressor. This idea, he's not saying that's what he wants. It's not like I want to see you and Jahannam No, he's saying I want you to be the one who carries the sin. If you do this, you carry both of our sin, I'm not going to, I'm not going to participate in this. If you come to me with the kill me, I'm not going to go after you either, I'm not going to I'm not going to make this No, I'm going to do what you want.

00:16:34--> 00:16:45

And then if you do that, then you will be for the guna males have enough. And that's why I split Hakuna because it is not a part of what he wants, it's a part of the consequence of what he does. Alright, with that he could just Oh, volume.

00:16:47--> 00:16:57

Now let's, let's take some context into the story so that you understand why this is important. Aside from the horrific sin of murder, aside from this horrific action,

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

this is happening within a family

00:17:02--> 00:17:34

is happening within a family. Now if you extend the concept, the human race as a family based on this story, because we all just kind of came from these people. But it's more difficult for you and I to kind of understand that piece because of how long it's been and how far it's spread. But for them, they were a tight knit family. It's a father and mother and four children. And what is telling the other I'm going to murder you I've made my decision. This is what I'm going to do. It wasn't a whim. It wasn't a moment of anger. It was an intention that he had put together and who was ready to execute it.

00:17:36--> 00:17:41

Now, the minute you said, and his wife knew certain things about their law,

00:17:42--> 00:18:18

right? So today, it is they're talking about the law and then in signing the contract of adhering to the lung, a part of this law were certain things they had learned from Allah subhanho wa Taala that were ancient in nature that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam had taught us he told us let us try to assess them and walk him up. I lucked out to be out of SHIELD ramen with the rewriting be happy on ramen, duck tuna to nourish you to Allah subhanho wa Taala that that the rhyme Rahim as a concept now that I'm here is not the womb, even though that's what it's called, we will refer him as in silica RAM as in kinship, held on to the Throne of Allah subhanaw taala and another narration and

00:18:18--> 00:19:02

talked about something a little bit more difficult for me to explain to you and in English, but it held on to the Throne of Allah subhanaw taala asking him and begging him for calling Allah who are now entitled Lena and LCD men who also are lucky when Allah Iman Kotaki will you not be satisfied that I will connect with those who hold on to you or keep your or preserve you and I will cut off those who sever you because by that elite? Yes, I am happy with that. In another narration the Prophet alayhi salatu salam says yeah, COVID Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah says, I know Rahman I am the rock man. Now is the cockatoo your Rahimi is Min Min izmi I have derived for kinship, a name that is

00:19:02--> 00:19:18

taken from my own name is taken from a ROM I'm a rock man and I made Shoba and Mr. name taken from mine, but mine was saleha was alto, woman Katara katako. Those who who preserve it, I will preserve them and those who sever it, I will sever them.

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

The concept of ROM is very clear to them. They understand what this means. So when he's telling his brother, I'm going to murder you. He is

00:19:28--> 00:19:45

not just severing the he's not just taking away the sanctity of life. Not only is he is he going back on this contract that he signed when he when he accepted this law. He's also going against some of the basic ethics of what would keep his family together and imagine the pain of a father.

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

I mean, we have to think about these things we're not talking about in the Quran, but they're not difficult for you to contemplate. You can't figure out that he a twin and a marriage. You can't figure that piece out. If you're not told somebody it's like if and it's like you do

00:20:00--> 00:20:31

Yeah, that's why I don't think it's important. Because it was important it was you'd find it the story the story would have been put into the detail and put in the Quran so that we know about it. It's not important. But this you can contemplate on your own the pain of a father and a mother when their children dispute and fight. One of them goes as far as wanting to kill the other. How is that? We don't think about that piece of the pain that item on acnm had to had to endure and the pain of how a lot when she ended up losing at the end both both of her children.

00:20:32--> 00:20:35

But it leads me to Thomas did me

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

he made a promise back there. He told them.

00:20:40--> 00:20:50

I will miss him. I will take them. I will miss guide them. I will mislead them. I'll put rains on their mouths and I will leave them in whatever direction I want. So he did

00:20:52--> 00:21:02

that scene of dispute is where hubby on Instagram. told him I'm not going to write raise my hand I'm not going to fight back. You're my brother. I can't do that.

00:21:04--> 00:21:40

This is have taken from this we know a number of things the Prophet alayhi salatu salam will talk about and so the cool fitna in hell call a movie Chiron minister I will fire up her Hiram and I'll call him that contra v have Hakuna Abdullah Halima Abdullah Abdullah Hill party, where he said on a syllogism the Hadith and Muslim Muhammad that there will be a fitna at one point where the person who was standing is better than the person who isn't contributing. The person who was sitting cut me, the person who's completely out of it is better than the person who was standing somewhere in the middle of it. And if it comes and you have no choice be the Abdullah who was killed I Billa who

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

is killing.

00:21:43--> 00:22:24

We have an example of that, that I think is worth sharing with you when I tell you this story, an example that I that I'm not sure how much people how much you know about it or how detailed you've heard the story or not. But I think it's worth telling. When this man or the Allahu Anhu went and went through his fitna or injured what he had to endure it and he did one Allah man, he had to go through something at the end of his life that he had some previous information about that a lot of people didn't end as a part of why the dispute occurred after he passed away or after he was martyred. But what happened was, the Islamic Empire spread almost an explosive matter during his

00:22:24--> 00:23:07

time. And he was running now an empire the biggest empire in the world, with not enough fun who had to flee Mecca to be Senia for a few years out of fear, at the end of his life ruled the largest empire on earth at the time. It's bigger than the Persian bigger than the Roman, they did not have as much no one had as much land or had enough fun as many people under their sovereignty than Earth modeled lo on who did during his life. Meaning if you're talking about kings of the land, who had the most land and the most in the largest armies and the most resources, during that it was a matter of an effort in his main makes it on an international scale as being the most powerful leader with

00:23:07--> 00:23:31

that came taxation of a lot of fitten because you went from the Prophet there's only 25 years or 27 years after the Prophet Allah you saw some passed away of basically ruling Medina and just just a little bit of Arabia rounded ruling basically most of the world in the known world at the time because the two Americas were still not knowing that we don't have a lot of documentation of what was going on during that period anyways.

00:23:32--> 00:24:08

So a lot of fit that happened and you have different people with different backgrounds accepting Islam bringing their own luggage into the deen and their own culture into it and it was getting in the mix was happening and mistakes were going on with people who are ruling certain parts and it was just it was not it was going to take time before things settled down. So some people a fitness started this this anger started then this controversy and Earthman was in the center of it somehow it the way it was it was being a sponge with my name and I thought oh I knew was the reason that this all these mistakes were happening and why people were not so they waited for the title the time

00:24:08--> 00:24:44

of hedge and they raided in Madina Munawwara I say Kenya Salatu was to them. And Medina was almost half empty because people had gone for Hajj Northman that year was not sure if he was going yet or not and it was still early meaning it was still at least a month. You saw it a month ago to hijo it's not like now you go a date a few days before because you have a plane you had to get it you have to prepare yourself and go a month in advance to get yourself ready. So they came in they and they put a CD around the house I've saved North metal the Allahu Anhu so the army of Medina that was responsible for protecting the medina perfect protecting the believer prepared themselves amongst

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

them saved now even if you thought him the Allahu Anhu whenever what IRA and there's a bit of nowhere, I mean, it hasn't been Ali and others and he had ordered them early Allah who I know said North might just stand down. He ordered them to stand down and you don't don't don't not engage

00:25:00--> 00:25:21

An ideal ideal owner would come to the profit potential saved on this model the loved one who multiple times saying you have to make a choice either you get Mary or Iran and I and you go to hydrogen they don't kill you, because you're mad at him or we get you out in the middle of the night and we said we got you go up to Sham where you where we have a stronger

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

stronghold or you allow us to fight them. And you have to we have to fight them back. These are the coverage you they came to kill the Khalifa and the medina of the Prophet saw the wisdom, regardless of why you want to do it. It's already wrong. It's already obvious that what you're doing is not the right this is not the correct answer. Like there's too many too many layers that are wrong here. Right Subhanallah they lost it. So as mine told him, it will lay down close to Mohammed la Catalonia. Don't kill me, my friend. They don't care like they don't see they think I am deviant. They think I'm deviant to the point where they will kill me in Iran and to run away from Sham to run

00:25:58--> 00:26:13

away to Shanghai me to run away from them. I don't run away from people. And I'm not going to leave the medina of the Prophet as the Northwest and I'm as we're defending me, I will not have a drop of blood spilled for me know what you will not spilled blood for me in the meeting of the Prophet I thought

00:26:14--> 00:26:44

it would stay like them. And the seed would continue for a while. And I was moderately low on who would need they would cut off any food or water coming in coming into his home. And he would explain he would talk to people meaning you would make announcements to people and do not remember the day of the aroma. You're not remember the day of JC dosa, remember that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam is trying to explain to them why are you doing this do not know the hit by history. What you think of me is not what it is.

00:26:45--> 00:26:48

And he refused. He refused.

00:26:49--> 00:26:58

Well worried I came and asked him the last time because it had gotten very upset. He had come so many times and he wouldn't budge. So if my daughter Barrera, he told him

00:27:00--> 00:27:43

in the ABA De Niro Sudler alayhi salatu salam Temo to Allah mercy, but in the free book of Elsevier, and elsewhere, I was told by the prophet you're going to die based on and we'll see but that's going to come to us and you need to persevere during the time. So, here I am, I am persevering finals, but when you're off I think Medina T Tatro to them a Muslim in the Earth man, there will be no bloodshed or blood spill in Medina of a Muslim worth man. Now, this is what this is what had been said. This is a very this is a very clear concept Islamically very clear concept that I will not participate in the bloodshed because this is our amongst our nation. This is our family.

00:27:45--> 00:27:56

What if I no one wins? When when brothers and sisters fight? Nobody wins. There is no winning party. Regardless of what the outcome is. No one wins. You can't win. How can you win?

00:27:58--> 00:28:35

Okay, there is no way to win. This is your family. You harm them you lose the harm you you lose, no matter what happens. It's a loss for everyone. There's no winning when Abraham Takata when there's a severing of kinship, or when the OMA disputes within itself. Let's say North America the loved one who persevered and in the narration is that night he woke up now I think it is way past him White Knight II during asleep you saw the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam in his dream and he told him Yeah, it's mine. I shook your they made you thirsty. I find out I'm yellow sola. Yes, I've got a job Oh, they made you hungry. I smell cleaner. I'm yellows because they always man. My bad look OMA Tara

00:28:35--> 00:29:12

and de su vida and Endeca what often the nd will be back Renoir more How about you make tomorrow intention of fasting tomorrow and you come and you break your fast with me and Abu Bakr Omar. So that's my woke up happy, Allah Juan. And he was killed that thing as he was reciting the Quran, and his blood was spilled upon the Quran, and the fitna died and the people who came to do that left Medina and this the spirit that continued later continue to because some people do not understand why save North man did what he did and why that happened to begin with. But he chose to be heavy. Now kabhi Allah, you know, the one who Allah because he could have shed blood there, you could have

00:29:12--> 00:29:43

murdered all of those people. All the holidays could have been killed and there would be good reason for it. And we probably wouldn't, we would not object to any of it, you'd find that to be completely normal. You have a Khalifa and you have people who are raiding the city of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam to get rid of them is a very, very natural and reasonable thing to do. But he refused. You refuse to be the reason for bloodshed or the Allahu underworld bla and I don't think that piece of the story is told well, I don't think they'll understand the sacrifice he offered. I come from a country where the person who was in charge decided to burn the country to the ground and everyone in

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

it to hold on to the seats were saved. No, not all the Allahu Anhu was willing to die just to put out a small fitna and not cause any form of bloodshed for the sake of his own life. And the difference between the two types of rulers. The two types of ruling is extremely obvious. This is huge. It's between

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

Night and day. Why? Because it's based on the intention based on the understanding of the basic story of Bobby didn't have you the first murder that happened and why it happened, and how to deal with him.

00:30:11--> 00:30:26

The third scene, the scene of the murder, but oh, what level would have Sue? This is the verse, this is the piece, there's certain words in this story, you have to know if Oh, wow, it's low enough, Sue? Oh, wha is when you make something or you keep on.

00:30:28--> 00:30:34

Keep on putting something under a certain amount of pressure until it does what you want to do. Right?

00:30:35--> 00:31:10

If you have some peace of, of equipment, and it's not working on moving it, keep on putting pressure until it sits the way it needs to sit. So you're happy with the way it looks. It's a they do that with metal, they do that with plastic, they do that with wood, they keep on applying pressure, until it gives you whatever you want it to give it to you means that you're not going to do it forcefully. But you'll do it through time, it will be through repetition, slowly keep on applying pressure until something but oh wants to know, whenever suits with an edge. That's how it works. And that's knows that if it's too forceful upon you, you will hear His voice. And you will recognize that that's not

00:31:10--> 00:31:44

you, you'll recognize that this is a different sound inside of you. That's telling you to do this that just wants you to think that what you're doing is your decision that just wants you to think that you're making the decision. Very sneaky. So we will just slowly keep on repeating an idea until you until you think it's your idea is not your idea is the knifes taking it from Shavon Shavon gives the idea then emphasis like yeah, that's how it makes sense. That's how we should preserve ourselves. Allah soprano accepted from Excel from us. He now looks better than us. He seems he's better. My parents love him more than us. I'll kill him. That's the best thing I kill him and get

00:31:44--> 00:31:59

rid of him. But you have to do it slow football. Weitzner Hoon of Su philosophy doesn't happen all at once. It's not a split decision to slow process. You have to be aware you have to be awake.

00:32:00--> 00:32:07

You have to know what the next is capable of doing. Because you'll think it's your idea. And you'll think it makes sense and it doesn't.

00:32:08--> 00:32:18

You'll learn to rationalize something that has no rationale behind it just because it keeps on do it knows how to do this. Without whatsoever would have to cut Luffy cutter and he killed him

00:32:19--> 00:32:22

but also by home university. From that moment he became a loser.

00:32:24--> 00:32:26

One of the people who lose is on the Day of Judgment.

00:32:29--> 00:32:43

NFC is very powerful. It can make you kill your own blood by making murder your brother with the right circumstances or the wrong circumstances for the lack of a better word and make you do something that is absolutely horrific.

00:32:45--> 00:32:47

Katella Mufasa hamilo Castilian

00:32:48--> 00:32:56

fourth scene, the scene of the crow bath Allah who will robbing you ever has revealed our Lila Uriah who cave for you already so

00:32:57--> 00:33:02

he stood there on the courts of his brother Nabil

00:33:03--> 00:33:05

he had no idea what to do no one had died yet

00:33:06--> 00:33:11

no human being died yet as far as they as far as they understood they didn't know what to do

00:33:13--> 00:33:20

they had every animal they murdered they slaughtered they would eat nothing to bury burns the rest of it in fire

00:33:21--> 00:33:27

he's a person is known to be standing there thinking what do I know what we saw crow

00:33:28--> 00:33:35

the water and this girl had beside this crow was a was a dead crow. And the Crow was basically

00:33:36--> 00:33:58

using its feet or its hands to dig up some earth and dig up enough earth he just stood there watching the crow monster crowed dug a hole that was reasonable enough rolled the other one into it and then it uses swings and uncovered it to the best of its ability with with the soil of the earth the urea okay for you it so actually

00:33:59--> 00:34:03

you can see the so you can cover the shame of what he did to his brother

00:34:06--> 00:34:07


00:34:08--> 00:34:10

the symbolism in this piece of the story is quite

00:34:12--> 00:34:13


00:34:14--> 00:34:17

to crow times it's

00:34:19--> 00:34:57

one of the animals or when the birds that people see no value to him people always see the crow even today as a bad omen is something that I mean that there's no there's no you know it's it's not that doesn't exist we don't you don't see a crow and think anything negative. I mean, it's one of those birds that just they don't carry a lot of beauty. They don't bring a lot of benefit. They're actually quite annoying. And you're from an from a sound perspective they there's nothing nice about their voices or they just they're a bird that human beings live rarely see any value in keeping his do not a pet. You don't raise them you don't want them around. You skate ever scarecrows you for

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

Colville for five years specifically he probably

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

did not want did not like crows at all, because he was a farmer Chronos they ruined crops, you have to have scarecrows to get rid of them. So he probably despised crows. And then you learn from them. You learned he had to take a lesson from the lowest of creatures in his eyes, to be able to know what to do after he made the mistake. He had to learn from the lowest of creatures.

00:35:22--> 00:35:57

It was a it was an experience was supposed to teach him something, aside from just how to bury, we're supposed to teach him something about himself. They're supposed to teach him that you are extremely ignorant and very weak and you know very little, and you were offered now an opportunity maybe to record recognize that recognize the fact that you will be taught by a CRO that you know so little that a CRO is going to educate you in terms of what your next step is going to be. May that humble you? May that allow you to actually actually have regrets that will take you in a different we'll talk about the scene of regret, but it's just not the right time. It's not the right kind.

00:35:59--> 00:36:04

Yeah, it was taught by an animal that he thought was much lower than him because he didn't know

00:36:06--> 00:36:07

the scene of regret.

00:36:08--> 00:36:24

But I go away later. I just do an akuna Mithra rob the acceptance of what a what a bad yeah, wait a time I'm in such trouble. Have I failed to figure out what to do what what this crow is doing?

00:36:25--> 00:36:39

Well, yeah, so actually to basically to cover my sin or to cover my my shame, the shame of what I did to my brother, else behind me and and demean. And he lived a moment of regret. Not not the moment of regret.

00:36:40--> 00:36:43

That was Tober

00:36:44--> 00:37:22

No, he didn't. He didn't perform Tober he didn't say I should not have killed him. He regretted that he didn't do this. He didn't think this through better. He regretted not having a better plan for it to begin with. He didn't regret killing. He didn't feel bad about doing this for this. So he was you. If he did he would have went to his father and mother and he would have repented. He was asked Allah subhanaw taala to forgive him he would have come clean with it. He regretted not doing things better. Not having a better plan, not putting more thought into into this whole thing. Not figuring out another way, but he committed to what he did. He stuck to it. He stuck to it. Versus after that

00:37:22--> 00:37:45

and as you do the Lika Taberna Bani Israel eel and no malerkotla and FCMB readiness in over Saudi infill all difficu nema cottolin NASA Jamia because of this, we made it clear Gemini is slightly that if you murder someone who take a life, and you did not have the right to take that life, or you did it out of corruption is like you murdered all of humankind. It's like you killed everybody.

00:37:46--> 00:38:20

It's like a gift because everyone is equal. If I take your life, and rightfully so, I didn't have the right. And there's nothing to stop me from doing this to anyone else. And because your life is equal to the life of every other person. It's as if I killed every other person here. Because there's no difference in the value of the life of any person or any human giving given human being. Woman. Yeah, and those who save a life, you save one life is like you saved all lives, because lives are all equal. There is no life that is more valuable than another life. So if you save this slave, well, that's not enough to have a better life. No, they're all They're all. It's all the same. The

00:38:20--> 00:38:58

life of anyone, any age, any race, any ethnicity, any backgrounds all equal. So if you understand the sanctity of it, then you take care of it, just like you took care of all of life. And if you don't see the sanctity of it, and you remove it, or you cause bloodshed, it's like you have no respect to any life, which is why our friend decided to die. Because he respected life. And if life had to leave this world, if because of a certain problem, a life had to be removed, it was going to be it was going to be someone else's. Because he's not going to carry that ism, which is what he told his brother, look, if someone's going to die, it's going to be me, I am not going to fight

00:38:58--> 00:39:33

back. Even though if you go back to the Dora, and the NG have been was bigger and heavier, it was more was stronger. The computer was actually more powerful than OBD II couldn't have killed him if he didn't want to let him kill him. They had been was not overpowered by his brother in Germany, his murder had been refused to fight back. He sat down he said, Go ahead and visit with the ISS imbecile when you put your hand out to kill me, man, it'd be best if I will not put my hand out to kill you back. I will sit there. And if you want to kill me, then that's what's going to happen. Because I will not fight back I will not shed blood. If blood is going to be shed that is gonna be your

00:39:33--> 00:39:35

decision. I'm not going to do it myself.

00:39:37--> 00:39:38

And this is the story of

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

this is the story of clubbing and have been filled

00:39:44--> 00:39:47

has one motive to it all these scenes the scene,

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

the scene of the Audubon, the offering in the scene of the dispute in the scene of the murder and the scene of the whole Rob and the scene of the burial and the scene of regret all these scenes things are happening.

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

The motive behind all of this behind this saga was just was just envy.

00:40:06--> 00:40:07

Who's envy?

00:40:08--> 00:40:27

Who's envious for whatever reason, whatever reason it was the Quran points out the is the Quran that the both offered and one got accepted the other one didn't get accepted and the one who didn't get accepted just couldn't handle it. But now this person was seen as a higher rank was seen as better. It hold Alessandro la HTML has to do with email and will be a call we're

00:40:29--> 00:41:02

in the heart of a servant you can't have Iman and V together one of them has to beat the other one out either has a heart Ice Man in it we're at heart that has has said in it when we share the highest in either hazard we talked about hazard a lot today. We talk about you spend it unfortunately we spent a lot of time talking about it and we and we get caught up in the mistakes of it and the No I said causes behaviors I said made a brother kill another brother I said will make you say and do something about such as someone that is uncalled for make you harm someone

00:41:03--> 00:41:17

and I'll end with that because the story is actually you need it. I need an hour to do this. So and with that inshallah Tada. So we're gonna be hunting Shinola and just don't feel good to break. Allahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad, you know, early, he was talking to his man he's like Malala Hey, robotic Allah, He can forgive me for taking a bit longer.
