Welcome to another episode of our tafsir page

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

by page and Insha'Allah

00:00:50 --> 00:00:52

today we are on page 105 of the

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

Quran, which is in the 6th juz towards

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

the very end now of Surah Nisa.

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

In the previous episode, we mentioned the verses

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

that which Allah

00:01:03 --> 00:01:05

highlighted to us and emphasized to us the

00:01:05 --> 00:01:07

role of the messengers and the duties and

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

responsibilities

00:01:08 --> 00:01:10

and tasks that they are given and that

00:01:10 --> 00:01:10

is essentially

00:01:11 --> 00:01:12

that they should give glad tidings to those

00:01:12 --> 00:01:14

people who believe in them and follow the

00:01:14 --> 00:01:16

path of Allah and they give warnings of

00:01:16 --> 00:01:19

punishment to those who disbelieve and turn away

00:01:19 --> 00:01:22

from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. And Allah did

00:01:22 --> 00:01:22

mention

00:01:22 --> 00:01:25

those people who turn away from Allah,

00:01:25 --> 00:01:27

disbelieve in Allah, bar others

00:01:28 --> 00:01:29

from the path of Allah Azzawajal,

00:01:30 --> 00:01:31

oppress those who believe and do harm to

00:01:31 --> 00:01:34

them and how Allah Azzawajal will not allow

00:01:34 --> 00:01:36

them to follow because as a result of

00:01:36 --> 00:01:38

their actions and their belief, they will not

00:01:38 --> 00:01:40

find a path other than the path that

00:01:40 --> 00:01:41

leads to the hellfire.

00:01:43 --> 00:01:45

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala in the verse that

00:01:45 --> 00:01:47

we begin with today which is verse 171,

00:01:48 --> 00:01:49

He says,

00:02:35 --> 00:02:37

Allah Azzawajal says addressing the people of the

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

scripture or people of the book,

00:02:40 --> 00:02:42

Do not go to excess in your religion,

00:02:43 --> 00:02:45

and do not say anything about Allah except

00:02:45 --> 00:02:46

the truth.

00:02:46 --> 00:02:48

The Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, was nothing

00:02:48 --> 00:02:50

more than a messenger of Allah.

00:02:50 --> 00:02:53

His word directed to Mary a spirit from

00:02:53 --> 00:02:55

him. So believe in Allah and his messengers

00:02:55 --> 00:02:57

and do not speak of a trinity.

00:02:58 --> 00:03:00

Stop this. That is better for you. For

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

indeed Allah is

00:03:02 --> 00:03:04

the only one God, is the only one

00:03:04 --> 00:03:05

worthy of worship.

00:03:05 --> 00:03:07

He is far above having a son.

00:03:08 --> 00:03:10

Everything in the heavens and earth belongs to

00:03:10 --> 00:03:11

him and he is the best one to

00:03:11 --> 00:03:12

trust.

00:03:12 --> 00:03:15

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala in this verse begins

00:03:15 --> 00:03:17

by giving us a general guide, a general

00:03:17 --> 00:03:18

principle.

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

Even though it is addressed to the people

00:03:20 --> 00:03:21

of the book and the people of the

00:03:21 --> 00:03:23

scripture which are the Jews and the Christians,

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

this is a general principle that applies to

00:03:25 --> 00:03:27

everyone including to us as Muslims.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:27

Allah

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

gives us a general principle in which he

00:03:30 --> 00:03:33

forbids us from 2 things and commands us

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

with one

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

thing. Allah forbids us from 2 things. The

00:03:36 --> 00:03:38

first of them is that we don't go

00:03:38 --> 00:03:41

to extremes and excesses in our religion

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

and that shows that even a person when

00:03:43 --> 00:03:45

it comes to worship,

00:03:45 --> 00:03:46

religiosity,

00:03:47 --> 00:03:49

adhering to what they think is the religion

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

can go to excess. They can go to

00:03:51 --> 00:03:52

extremes.

00:03:52 --> 00:03:54

So it's not just the disbelievers

00:03:54 --> 00:03:54

or

00:03:55 --> 00:03:57

those people who don't believe in a God

00:03:57 --> 00:03:58

or don't accept a religion that can go

00:03:58 --> 00:04:01

to extremes in their actions and beliefs. People

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

of religion can also go to excess

00:04:03 --> 00:04:05

and extremes in their belief as well. As

00:04:05 --> 00:04:08

we know for example from that which the

00:04:08 --> 00:04:09

people did such as the Christians and the

00:04:09 --> 00:04:11

Jews and others that they went to extremes

00:04:11 --> 00:04:14

in the way that they held up some

00:04:14 --> 00:04:16

of the prophets of Allah such as Risa

00:04:16 --> 00:04:18

and his mother Mariam

00:04:18 --> 00:04:20

and that is what Allah didn't speak about

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

in more detail in this verse, verse 171

00:04:23 --> 00:04:26

of Surah Al Nisa. But the principle is

00:04:26 --> 00:04:28

general. Don't go to extremes in all religions.

00:04:28 --> 00:04:30

Even for us as Muslims, we have to

00:04:30 --> 00:04:31

be careful on this point

00:04:32 --> 00:04:34

because amongst the Muslims there are those who

00:04:34 --> 00:04:36

will go to extremes in issues of belief

00:04:37 --> 00:04:39

or in the status that they afford to

00:04:39 --> 00:04:41

certain people for example. So there are amongst

00:04:41 --> 00:04:43

the Muslims those who believe and give to

00:04:43 --> 00:04:46

the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam a status above

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

that which Allah gave to him. Him. He

00:04:48 --> 00:04:50

is the Messenger of Allah and the best

00:04:50 --> 00:04:52

of creation and the most beloved of Allah's

00:04:52 --> 00:04:54

creation to him. But he doesn't have the

00:04:54 --> 00:04:56

powers of divinity. He is not a God

00:04:56 --> 00:04:57

besides Allah

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

but amongst the Muslims there are those who

00:04:59 --> 00:05:01

call upon the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam and

00:05:01 --> 00:05:03

make dua to him. And think that he

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

can provide them with children, that he can

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

cure them when they are sick, that he

00:05:07 --> 00:05:09

can help them with their wealth and their

00:05:09 --> 00:05:11

financial problems and they call out to him

00:05:11 --> 00:05:12

the way that they should call out to

00:05:12 --> 00:05:15

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. And that is something

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

which you find amongst the Muslims. And then

00:05:17 --> 00:05:19

there are amongst the Muslims those who have

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

given

00:05:20 --> 00:05:22

status to the Awliya of Allah Those

00:05:23 --> 00:05:25

people of righteousness and piety and knowledge above

00:05:25 --> 00:05:27

that which Allah gave to them. They are

00:05:27 --> 00:05:29

people of knowledge and they are people

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

of special status because of their closeness to

00:05:32 --> 00:05:33

Allah

00:05:33 --> 00:05:35

but again they are not Gods, they don't

00:05:35 --> 00:05:37

know the unseen, they don't control the affairs

00:05:37 --> 00:05:38

of the heavens and the earth, they don't

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

grant you children or whatever else it may

00:05:40 --> 00:05:42

be, and so those people take them to

00:05:42 --> 00:05:45

extremes, whether it's from amongst the companions as

00:05:45 --> 00:05:46

some people did with the likes of Ali

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

and his sons Al Hassan al Hussain radiAllahu

00:05:50 --> 00:05:53

anhumah and Fatima radiAllahu anha or whether it's

00:05:53 --> 00:05:55

what people did with certain scholars of Islam

00:05:55 --> 00:05:57

and certain Uliya that they called saints

00:05:58 --> 00:06:00

and they raised them above their station

00:06:00 --> 00:06:01

and they essentially

00:06:01 --> 00:06:02

used

00:06:02 --> 00:06:05

them for benefit and toward harm and for

00:06:05 --> 00:06:07

children and for wealth and for a cure

00:06:07 --> 00:06:09

of sickness and so on and so forth.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:11

And that is something where people can go

00:06:11 --> 00:06:12

to extremes in religion.

00:06:13 --> 00:06:14

And so this is something which a person

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

has to be mindful of in terms of

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

belief but also then in terms of worship

00:06:18 --> 00:06:20

and action because the person can go to

00:06:20 --> 00:06:21

extremes in terms of the way that they

00:06:21 --> 00:06:23

worship Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. And that is

00:06:23 --> 00:06:25

why the prophet told us salallahu alaihi wa

00:06:25 --> 00:06:26

sallam for example,

00:06:27 --> 00:06:29

the person who for example fasts as in

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

the hadith of Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al

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

Asquaddhiallahu

00:06:32 --> 00:06:33

anhu that if you want to fast and

00:06:33 --> 00:06:36

you want to fast often, you can't fast

00:06:36 --> 00:06:37

every day of the year. That's not something

00:06:37 --> 00:06:39

which is allowed that's going to extreme and

00:06:39 --> 00:06:42

an act of worship. The Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi

00:06:42 --> 00:06:44

Wasallam, the best of is the fasting of

00:06:44 --> 00:06:47

Dawood alaihi wasallam. He would fast today and

00:06:47 --> 00:06:49

he would miss a day. And likewise the

00:06:49 --> 00:06:50

prophet salallahu alaihi wasallam

00:06:51 --> 00:06:53

prohibited people from spending the whole night in

00:06:53 --> 00:06:55

prayer without resting as a norm. Yes, there

00:06:55 --> 00:06:57

are exceptions to that rule where you are

00:06:57 --> 00:06:59

going to fast multiple days such as in

00:06:59 --> 00:07:01

Ramadan or the 6 days of Shawwal or

00:07:01 --> 00:07:04

the first days of Dhruhijjah. There are exceptions

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

when you will spend the whole night awake

00:07:06 --> 00:07:08

in prayer like the last 10 nights of

00:07:08 --> 00:07:10

Ramadan and certain days of worship and nights

00:07:10 --> 00:07:12

of worship. Those are the exceptions to the

00:07:12 --> 00:07:14

rule but does that become your norm throughout

00:07:14 --> 00:07:16

the whole year? No. The prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:07:16 --> 00:07:19

wa sallam forbade people from doing this because

00:07:19 --> 00:07:21

a person can go to extremes in this

00:07:21 --> 00:07:23

regard, to excesses in the religion of Allah

00:07:23 --> 00:07:25

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. So that is the first

00:07:25 --> 00:07:27

thing that Allah tells us to stay away

00:07:27 --> 00:07:29

from and be aware of, not to go

00:07:29 --> 00:07:31

to extremes in affairs of our religion. And

00:07:31 --> 00:07:33

the second thing is not to speak about

00:07:33 --> 00:07:34

Allah

00:07:34 --> 00:07:35

without knowledge,

00:07:35 --> 00:07:37

not to ascribe lies to Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:07:37 --> 00:07:40

Ta'ala. Don't speak about Allah with things that

00:07:40 --> 00:07:42

you don't know of, Like those people who

00:07:42 --> 00:07:44

associated partners with Allah. They said that Allah

00:07:44 --> 00:07:46

has a son, they said that Allah has

00:07:46 --> 00:07:48

partners that is speaking about that which they

00:07:48 --> 00:07:51

don't know, that is speaking about Allah without

00:07:51 --> 00:07:52

knowledge. How do you know that Allah has

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

a son? If Allah himself is saying I

00:07:55 --> 00:07:57

don't have a son, then what do you

00:07:57 --> 00:07:58

have to say that someone has a son?

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

Like me and you, if I was to

00:08:00 --> 00:08:01

say that you have a son and you

00:08:01 --> 00:08:03

say no, I don't have a son, I'm

00:08:03 --> 00:08:04

not married,

00:08:04 --> 00:08:06

who am I to say that you have

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

a son unless I have proof to the

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

contrary?

00:08:09 --> 00:08:10

And so therefore Allah

00:08:10 --> 00:08:12

is saying that these people are speaking about

00:08:12 --> 00:08:13

Allah without knowledge

00:08:14 --> 00:08:17

and often the cause of shirk and innovation

00:08:17 --> 00:08:19

in the religion is as a result of

00:08:19 --> 00:08:22

people speaking about Allah without knowledge and his

00:08:22 --> 00:08:24

religion without knowledge and that is why it

00:08:24 --> 00:08:25

is something which is a grave affair

00:08:26 --> 00:08:28

because all of shirk essentially emanates

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

from that one thing and that is speaking

00:08:31 --> 00:08:34

about Allah Subhanahu Ta'ala and his religion without

00:08:34 --> 00:08:36

knowledge. So those are the 2 things that

00:08:36 --> 00:08:39

Allah forbids us from in this principle. Don't

00:08:39 --> 00:08:41

go to extremes in your religion, don't speak

00:08:41 --> 00:08:44

about Allah without knowledge. And what should you

00:08:44 --> 00:08:45

do then? Walataqoo

00:08:45 --> 00:08:46

wa a'laahi illaalhaqq,

00:08:47 --> 00:08:48

but only speak the truth.

00:08:49 --> 00:08:51

Speak the truth what Allah said, what Allah

00:08:51 --> 00:08:53

wants, what Allah

00:08:53 --> 00:08:56

revealed, that is the truth and that is

00:08:56 --> 00:08:58

what you should be upon in terms of

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

your religion.

00:08:59 --> 00:09:02

After establishing this general principle, Allah now applies

00:09:02 --> 00:09:04

it to the scenario or to the context

00:09:04 --> 00:09:06

that these verses are mentioned in and that

00:09:06 --> 00:09:07

is for the people of the scripture.

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

And so Allah ajazul applies it now to

00:09:10 --> 00:09:13

Isa alaihis salam that the question said was

00:09:13 --> 00:09:15

the son of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, they

00:09:15 --> 00:09:17

elevated a man who was a prophet above

00:09:17 --> 00:09:17

his station,

00:09:18 --> 00:09:20

so essentially they went to extremes in their

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

religion

00:09:21 --> 00:09:23

and spoke about Allah without knowledge and concealed

00:09:23 --> 00:09:24

the truth.

00:09:24 --> 00:09:25

'Indeed,

00:09:29 --> 00:09:32

the Messiah, Risa the son of Maruyam

00:09:32 --> 00:09:34

was nothing more than the Messenger of Allah.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:36

And the Messenger of Allah is a lofty

00:09:36 --> 00:09:39

station, it is a great station, but that

00:09:39 --> 00:09:41

is all the station that he had. He

00:09:41 --> 00:09:43

doesn't go above this to the station of

00:09:43 --> 00:09:45

being a God besides Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:47

This is the rarity of Risa Alaihi Salat

00:09:47 --> 00:09:48

wa Salam.

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

And he is and he was the word

00:09:54 --> 00:09:56

that he directed to meaning that he said

00:09:56 --> 00:09:58

be and he was. That Allah decreed

00:09:59 --> 00:10:02

the birth of 'Isa a'rihi Salam because Maryam

00:10:02 --> 00:10:05

wasn't married, no man touched her and Allah

00:10:05 --> 00:10:07

simply said be he directed that word and

00:10:07 --> 00:10:08

he was and

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

a spirit from him that Jibreel alaihi salam

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

came and he blew into Maryam Alayhi Salaam

00:10:14 --> 00:10:16

that essentially made her pregnant and from that

00:10:16 --> 00:10:19

pregnancy would be the birth of the Messenger

00:10:19 --> 00:10:22

of Allah 'Isa Alaihi Salatu Wasallam.

00:10:22 --> 00:10:25

This is the reality of 'Isa Alaihi Salaam

00:10:25 --> 00:10:26

without going to extremes,

00:10:26 --> 00:10:29

without ascribing lies to Allah, without speaking about

00:10:29 --> 00:10:30

Allah, without knowledge.

00:10:33 --> 00:10:34

So Allah says: So believe in Allah and

00:10:34 --> 00:10:36

all of his prophets and messengers.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:39

Believe in Risa as the messenger of Allah,

00:10:39 --> 00:10:41

believe in Musa as the messenger of Allah,

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

believe in Mariam as the righteous lady, believe

00:10:43 --> 00:10:45

in them in the way that Allah has

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

decreed.

00:10:48 --> 00:10:50

And don't say that they are the trinity,

00:10:50 --> 00:10:53

don't say that they are 3 Gods, that

00:10:53 --> 00:10:54

it is Allah

00:10:54 --> 00:10:56

and Risa and the Holy Spirit, or that

00:10:56 --> 00:10:58

it is Allah and Risa and Mariam,

00:10:59 --> 00:11:01

and don't elevate him to the status that

00:11:01 --> 00:11:03

Allah didn't give to them.

00:11:05 --> 00:11:08

Allah says stop this for that is better

00:11:08 --> 00:11:09

for you, better for you in terms of

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

this life, better for you when you stand

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

before Allah

00:11:14 --> 00:11:15

azzawajal.

00:11:16 --> 00:11:17

For indeed Allah

00:11:18 --> 00:11:20

is the one God alone worthy of worship.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

Allah alone is worthy of worship, there is

00:11:22 --> 00:11:24

no God besides him, he has no partners,

00:11:25 --> 00:11:27

he takes no child, he takes no spouse,

00:11:27 --> 00:11:29

he is subhanahu wa ta'ala alone and unique

00:11:29 --> 00:11:31

Jallaf i'ula in a manner which befits his

00:11:31 --> 00:11:32

Majesty.

00:11:35 --> 00:11:37

Your Lord Allah is the one God worthy

00:11:37 --> 00:11:38

of worship.

00:11:40 --> 00:11:43

Glory be to Him. Far above is He

00:11:43 --> 00:11:45

from having a son. Why? Because having a

00:11:45 --> 00:11:47

son is a sign of weakness.

00:11:48 --> 00:11:51

A child is taken because you want your

00:11:51 --> 00:11:53

legacy to continue, because you are going to

00:11:53 --> 00:11:55

be old and ill at a time and

00:11:55 --> 00:11:57

you need him to look after you because

00:11:57 --> 00:11:59

you need him to manage your affairs and

00:11:59 --> 00:12:00

Allah is

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

far removed from any weakness or deficiency.

00:12:04 --> 00:12:06

And then if Allah is a God and

00:12:06 --> 00:12:08

his son is a God, then as Allah

00:12:08 --> 00:12:10

mentions elsewhere in the Quran in various Surahs

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

of the Quran like Surah Al muminun and

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

Surah Al Anbiya that if there were multiple

00:12:14 --> 00:12:16

Gods besides Allah azza wa Jal then those

00:12:16 --> 00:12:19

Gods would always fight with one another. There

00:12:19 --> 00:12:20

would be rivalries,

00:12:20 --> 00:12:23

there would be battles between them, which God

00:12:23 --> 00:12:26

is most supreme, whose will is enacted, is

00:12:26 --> 00:12:28

it this God or that God, and so

00:12:28 --> 00:12:30

it would cause a great deal of chaos

00:12:30 --> 00:12:32

and corruption and evil. And so there is

00:12:32 --> 00:12:35

only one God worthy of worship far removed

00:12:35 --> 00:12:37

it's Allah Azawajal from having taken a son.

00:12:40 --> 00:12:41

But rather everything in the heavens and the

00:12:41 --> 00:12:43

earth belongs to Allah

00:12:45 --> 00:12:46

and he is sufficient

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

as a protector.

00:12:49 --> 00:12:51

In verse 172 Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala then

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

says

00:13:07 --> 00:13:09

The Messiah would never disdain to be a

00:13:09 --> 00:13:12

servant of Allah nor would the angels who

00:13:12 --> 00:13:14

are close to him. He will gather before

00:13:14 --> 00:13:16

him all those who disdain his worship and

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

are arrogant.

00:13:17 --> 00:13:19

Allah Subhanu wa Ta'ala says that you claim

00:13:19 --> 00:13:21

that Reza Alayhi Salaam is the God besides

00:13:21 --> 00:13:22

Allah, he is the son of Allah Azza

00:13:22 --> 00:13:25

wa Jal, but the reality is that Reza

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

Alayhi Salaam is one of servants of Allah

00:13:26 --> 00:13:29

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and he doesn't disdain.

00:13:29 --> 00:13:31

He is not too arrogant or haughty or

00:13:31 --> 00:13:34

proud to be a servant of Allah Azzawajal.

00:13:34 --> 00:13:36

Just as the Prophet of Allah salallahu alaihi

00:13:36 --> 00:13:38

wa sallam took honor in the fact that

00:13:38 --> 00:13:40

he was Allah's servant and he would say

00:13:40 --> 00:13:41

don't elevate me the way that the Christians

00:13:41 --> 00:13:45

elevated Isa alaihi salam above his station. Brothers

00:13:45 --> 00:13:47

say that I am Allah's aab and his

00:13:47 --> 00:13:49

Rasool. I am the servant of Allah and

00:13:49 --> 00:13:50

his Messenger.

00:13:50 --> 00:13:52

And so Isa Alaihi Salam likewise

00:13:53 --> 00:13:55

is not so arrogant that he would disdain

00:13:56 --> 00:13:58

that he is a servant to Allah

00:13:58 --> 00:14:01

Rather the prophets of Allah take honour from

00:14:01 --> 00:14:03

this, that they are submitting to Allah Subhanahu

00:14:03 --> 00:14:05

Wa Ta'ala because he is the Lord and

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

creator of all and so they seek honour

00:14:07 --> 00:14:09

in this as opposed to looking down upon

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

it.

00:14:10 --> 00:14:13

Because the word slave or servant is something

00:14:13 --> 00:14:15

which is distained upon when we speak about

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

it in our own context amongst ourselves. But

00:14:17 --> 00:14:19

when it comes to Allah we should be

00:14:19 --> 00:14:21

honored to be his slaves. We should be

00:14:21 --> 00:14:22

honored to be the servants of Allah azza

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

wa Jal. So he is not too arrogant

00:14:25 --> 00:14:27

to be called a servant of Allah azza

00:14:27 --> 00:14:30

wa Jal nor are the angels who are

00:14:30 --> 00:14:31

close to him.

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

They too are the servants of Allah the

00:14:34 --> 00:14:35

slaves of Allah and

00:14:36 --> 00:14:37

they too do not have that level of

00:14:37 --> 00:14:39

arrogance or pride or haughtiness

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

that they don't want to be described as

00:14:41 --> 00:14:43

such. And that shows to you

00:14:43 --> 00:14:45

that these prophets of Allah, all of them,

00:14:45 --> 00:14:47

the messengers of Allah and the angels of

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

Allah that are in the company of Allah

00:14:49 --> 00:14:52

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala know their place and their

00:14:52 --> 00:14:54

station. And that is why Allah will mention

00:14:54 --> 00:14:56

as we will come to InshaAllah Ta'ala in

00:14:56 --> 00:14:58

verses including in the next Surah Surah Al

00:14:58 --> 00:15:00

Maida InshaAllah Ta'ala when Allah

00:15:01 --> 00:15:02

will speak to those angels

00:15:03 --> 00:15:06

and speak to those prophets and messengers and

00:15:06 --> 00:15:08

those things that were worshipped besides Allah and

00:15:08 --> 00:15:10

they didn't give authority for that, they didn't

00:15:10 --> 00:15:13

want it to be worshipped. Allah will question

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

them and they will free themselves and absolve

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

themselves from those who worship them besides Allah

00:15:17 --> 00:15:20

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala because they knew their place

00:15:20 --> 00:15:23

and their position and that's why we mentioned

00:15:23 --> 00:15:25

in the last couple of episodes that when

00:15:25 --> 00:15:28

Isa AL ASSA AL ASSAAM descends to earth

00:15:28 --> 00:15:29

towards the end of time,

00:15:30 --> 00:15:31

he will come down as a messenger of

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

Allah and as a servant of Allah Azza

00:15:33 --> 00:15:35

wa Jal and he will say that he

00:15:35 --> 00:15:35

wasn't

00:15:36 --> 00:15:37

a God besides Allah

00:15:38 --> 00:15:40

and he will establish Tawhid and he will

00:15:40 --> 00:15:41

call people to Allah azza wa Jal and

00:15:41 --> 00:15:43

he will reply the Sharia of our Prophet

00:15:43 --> 00:15:45

sallallahu alaihi wasallam. That is the reality of

00:15:45 --> 00:15:46

Risa alaihi wasallam

00:15:47 --> 00:15:49

and that is the reality of the angels

00:15:49 --> 00:15:51

who are with Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. But

00:15:51 --> 00:15:53

those who are many astanki for angry badati

00:15:53 --> 00:15:54

you were stickbill,

00:15:54 --> 00:15:56

But those people who are too arrogant and

00:15:56 --> 00:15:58

they disdain worshipping Allah

00:15:58 --> 00:16:01

alone, those are the people that Allah will

00:16:01 --> 00:16:02

gather them

00:16:03 --> 00:16:05

together to be judged. Allah

00:16:05 --> 00:16:07

differentiates between the 2 people that will be

00:16:07 --> 00:16:09

gathered before him. And he

00:16:10 --> 00:16:11

says in verse 173:

00:16:36 --> 00:16:38

As for those who believe and do good

00:16:38 --> 00:16:39

works,

00:16:39 --> 00:16:41

He will give due rewards and more of

00:16:41 --> 00:16:43

His bounty. And to those who are disdainful

00:16:43 --> 00:16:45

and arrogant, He will give an agonizing torment

00:16:46 --> 00:16:47

and they will find no one besides Allah

00:16:47 --> 00:16:50

to protect or help them. Allah Azzawajal said

00:16:50 --> 00:16:51

in the previous verse that all of the

00:16:51 --> 00:16:53

people will be gathered in front of Allah

00:16:54 --> 00:16:56

and Yomul Qiyam on the day of judgement.

00:16:56 --> 00:16:58

All of them will be resurrected and made

00:16:58 --> 00:17:00

to stand before him. And all of them

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

will be held to account and they will

00:17:01 --> 00:17:04

answer for their deeds and their beliefs and

00:17:04 --> 00:17:06

their actions and their statements. Allah says as

00:17:06 --> 00:17:09

the Ophiran does in the Quran distinguishing between

00:17:09 --> 00:17:11

the only 2 groups that will exist on

00:17:11 --> 00:17:13

that day. There is no third to these

00:17:13 --> 00:17:15

2 groups. There are only 2 groups that

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

will exist on that day. The first, as

00:17:18 --> 00:17:19

for those who believe,

00:17:19 --> 00:17:22

they believed in Allah, they worshipped him alone,

00:17:22 --> 00:17:24

they had full iman, they believed in the

00:17:24 --> 00:17:26

prophets and messengers of Allah as Prophets and

00:17:26 --> 00:17:29

Messengers of Allah, giving to them the stations

00:17:29 --> 00:17:32

that are theirs but not elevating them

00:17:32 --> 00:17:34

beyond that station, not going to extremes in

00:17:34 --> 00:17:36

their religion, not speaking about Allah who is

00:17:36 --> 00:17:39

a religion without knowledge, not ascribing lies to

00:17:39 --> 00:17:41

Allah Azza wa Jal. Not only that but

00:17:41 --> 00:17:42

then they did good deeds,

00:17:42 --> 00:17:43

worked righteousness,

00:17:44 --> 00:17:46

did as Allah commanded and stayed away from

00:17:46 --> 00:17:47

his prohibitions

00:17:48 --> 00:17:50

for them for you wafi him ujurahum.

00:17:50 --> 00:17:52

Allah will give to them their full reward.

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

They will have the reward of all the

00:17:54 --> 00:17:56

good that they did and Allah

00:17:56 --> 00:17:59

multiplies the reward of the good doers. So

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

Allah

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

will honour them.

00:18:02 --> 00:18:04

And He will give them an increase of

00:18:04 --> 00:18:05

his bounty,

00:18:05 --> 00:18:07

an increase in terms of everything they could

00:18:07 --> 00:18:09

possibly wish for. As we know from the

00:18:09 --> 00:18:10

Hadith of the Prophet

00:18:11 --> 00:18:14

that the last person to enter Jannah will

00:18:14 --> 00:18:14

have

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

the likes of everything in this world and

00:18:17 --> 00:18:20

double, All in the other wording and 10

00:18:20 --> 00:18:22

times it's like. And he is the least

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

of the people in terms of reward in

00:18:23 --> 00:18:26

Jannah. So in terms of their residence in

00:18:26 --> 00:18:28

Jannah, the clothing of Jannah, the food and

00:18:28 --> 00:18:30

drink of Jannah, the resting

00:18:31 --> 00:18:33

places of Jannah and all of the other

00:18:33 --> 00:18:35

beauties of Jannah. These people will receive all

00:18:35 --> 00:18:37

of this by Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala's grace.

00:18:39 --> 00:18:41

Allah will increase them from his bounty and

00:18:41 --> 00:18:43

the bounty of Allah is limitless

00:18:44 --> 00:18:45

and knows no end. Allah

00:18:46 --> 00:18:49

will favour them in this life and in

00:18:49 --> 00:18:51

the next. But as for the second group,

00:18:52 --> 00:18:54

as for those people who did disdain worshipping

00:18:54 --> 00:18:57

Allah meaning they looked down upon it, they

00:18:57 --> 00:18:59

considered it to be beneath them to worship

00:18:59 --> 00:19:00

Allah

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

alone was and

00:19:02 --> 00:19:04

they were arrogant and they had haughtiness in

00:19:04 --> 00:19:07

them for your Adhibuham Adhaban Alima. They will

00:19:07 --> 00:19:09

have the most painful agonizing of torments and

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

punishments.

00:19:14 --> 00:19:16

They will find no protector besides Allah Azza

00:19:16 --> 00:19:18

wa Jal. No one will help them. Those

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

gods that they worship besides Allah will forsake

00:19:21 --> 00:19:23

them. Those prophets that they elevated above their

00:19:23 --> 00:19:27

status, they will absolve themselves of them. Every

00:19:27 --> 00:19:29

place that they turn and every direction that

00:19:29 --> 00:19:31

they face, they will find no one to

00:19:31 --> 00:19:33

help them and so they will remain in

00:19:33 --> 00:19:35

the fire of * for all of eternity.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:38

Allah Azza wa Jain says in verse 174,

00:19:47 --> 00:19:48

Allah, Subhanahu

00:19:48 --> 00:19:49

Wa

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

Ta'ala,

00:19:57 --> 00:19:59

you. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala then says to

00:19:59 --> 00:20:01

the people that everything that you need in

00:20:01 --> 00:20:03

order to find guidance,

00:20:04 --> 00:20:05

in order to find salvation,

00:20:05 --> 00:20:07

Everything you need to know that which Allah

00:20:07 --> 00:20:09

Azza wa Jal wants you to know in

00:20:09 --> 00:20:11

order for you to be guided to him

00:20:11 --> 00:20:13

and worship him alone Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala in

00:20:13 --> 00:20:15

order for you to find the straight path

00:20:15 --> 00:20:16

to Allah

00:20:16 --> 00:20:18

it has been given to you.

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

Clear proof has come to you. Clear proof

00:20:23 --> 00:20:25

in the form of the Quran and the

00:20:25 --> 00:20:27

revelation of Allah azza wa Jal clear proof

00:20:27 --> 00:20:29

in the example of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi

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

wasallam.

00:20:30 --> 00:20:31

They have come to you and they are

00:20:31 --> 00:20:34

clear for those people who seek that clarity,

00:20:34 --> 00:20:36

for those people who are pure of heart,

00:20:36 --> 00:20:38

are sincerely seeking guidance,

00:20:38 --> 00:20:39

sincerely want to understand

00:20:40 --> 00:20:42

what their purpose is upon this earth and

00:20:42 --> 00:20:43

they are looking for that way to Allah

00:20:43 --> 00:20:46

subhanahu wa ta'ala. They feel that emptiness within

00:20:46 --> 00:20:48

their hearts and they recognize it for what

00:20:48 --> 00:20:49

it is that there is a lack of

00:20:49 --> 00:20:52

spiritual fulfillment there, that there is something that

00:20:52 --> 00:20:54

is missing from their lives even though they

00:20:54 --> 00:20:56

may have the trappings and the luxuries of

00:20:56 --> 00:20:58

the Dunya. They may have cars and wealth

00:20:58 --> 00:21:00

and money and other things but within their

00:21:00 --> 00:21:02

hearts they feel a loneliness.

00:21:02 --> 00:21:05

Within their hearts they feel a wilderness.

00:21:05 --> 00:21:07

Within their hearts they feel that there is

00:21:07 --> 00:21:10

something missing and the only thing that can

00:21:10 --> 00:21:12

fill that missing component of the heart is

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

the worship of Allah azza wa Jal and

00:21:14 --> 00:21:16

belief in him alone Subhanahu wa ta'ala. So

00:21:16 --> 00:21:19

they're searching and they're looking and they're sincere

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

in that guidance. Allah azza wa Jal will

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

give to them that guidance because the word

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

Burhan

00:21:24 --> 00:21:26

is a clear proof, as clear

00:21:26 --> 00:21:28

as the sun in the sky. For those

00:21:28 --> 00:21:30

people who seek it, it is clear for

00:21:30 --> 00:21:32

them if they are sincere. But for those

00:21:32 --> 00:21:34

people who are not sincere, those people who

00:21:34 --> 00:21:36

don't really want it or seek it, then

00:21:36 --> 00:21:38

even if it comes to them with a

00:21:38 --> 00:21:40

big stamp on it, they will not see

00:21:40 --> 00:21:42

it. They will walk away as has happened

00:21:42 --> 00:21:44

as we know throughout all of the nations.

00:21:44 --> 00:21:46

That their prophets would come with signs and

00:21:46 --> 00:21:48

miracles that they demanded themselves.

00:21:48 --> 00:21:50

And when they would see those signs, they

00:21:50 --> 00:21:51

would say, oh this is some type of

00:21:51 --> 00:21:54

magical sorcery. Then the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam

00:21:54 --> 00:21:57

split the moon for Quraysh because they demanded

00:21:57 --> 00:21:58

that he split the moon and Allah

00:21:59 --> 00:22:00

gave to the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam that

00:22:00 --> 00:22:03

miracle, what did they say? He is that

00:22:03 --> 00:22:05

sorcery, he is bewitching us, there is something

00:22:05 --> 00:22:07

going on here that doesn't make sense.

00:22:07 --> 00:22:09

Even the clearest of signs to them is

00:22:09 --> 00:22:11

not something which is enough. But the one

00:22:11 --> 00:22:14

who is sincere in seeking guidance, they will

00:22:14 --> 00:22:16

see the signs of the Quran and the

00:22:16 --> 00:22:18

signs that Allah has given therein and the

00:22:18 --> 00:22:20

signs of the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu

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

alaihi wasallam and that is enough for them.

00:22:24 --> 00:22:25

It is a clear proof that has come

00:22:25 --> 00:22:26

to you from your Lord.

00:22:28 --> 00:22:30

And Allah Azzawaj says that we have sent

00:22:30 --> 00:22:32

you this clear light and that is the

00:22:32 --> 00:22:34

Quran and everything it contains

00:22:34 --> 00:22:35

from guidance

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

and from mercy

00:22:37 --> 00:22:40

and from instruction from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

00:22:40 --> 00:22:43

Allah says in verse 175 which is the

00:22:43 --> 00:22:45

penultimate verse of the Surah and the final

00:22:45 --> 00:22:47

verse that we will take in today's episode

00:22:47 --> 00:22:49

and we will leave then the final verse

00:22:49 --> 00:22:52

inshallah ta'ala for our next episode Allah says

00:22:52 --> 00:22:53

in verse 175.

00:23:08 --> 00:23:10

Allah will admit those who believe in him

00:23:10 --> 00:23:12

and hold fast to him, into his mercy

00:23:12 --> 00:23:14

and favour. He will guide them towards him

00:23:14 --> 00:23:16

on a straight path. And this is the

00:23:16 --> 00:23:17

promise of Allah

00:23:18 --> 00:23:19

that those people who believe in Allah Subhanahu

00:23:19 --> 00:23:22

Wa Ta'ala and worship him alone,

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

do as Allah Azza wa Jal instructs and

00:23:24 --> 00:23:26

hold fast to this meaning they turn to

00:23:26 --> 00:23:29

Allah Azza wa Jal and hold onto the

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

rope of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala from the

00:23:31 --> 00:23:33

Quran and from that which the Messenger of

00:23:33 --> 00:23:33

Allah

00:23:34 --> 00:23:37

brought their whole life revolves around Allah Subhanahu

00:23:37 --> 00:23:39

Wa Ta'ala and holding on to the guidance

00:23:39 --> 00:23:43

that Allah gave. What does Allah say concerning

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

them?

00:23:45 --> 00:23:46

He

00:23:47 --> 00:23:49

will enter them into His Mercy

00:23:50 --> 00:23:52

and His favour And that is in this

00:23:52 --> 00:23:53

life that they would have the mercy of

00:23:53 --> 00:23:54

Allah

00:23:54 --> 00:23:56

and the blessings of Allah and

00:23:56 --> 00:23:58

the favors, grace and bounty of Allah

00:23:59 --> 00:24:00

and that is before

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

what Allah

00:24:02 --> 00:24:04

will give to them of the rewards and

00:24:04 --> 00:24:06

delights of Jannah and Yomul Qiyama and how

00:24:06 --> 00:24:08

Allah will honour them on that day when

00:24:08 --> 00:24:10

there will only be 2 groups those who

00:24:10 --> 00:24:10

will have salvation

00:24:11 --> 00:24:13

and those who will have damnation. Allah will

00:24:13 --> 00:24:14

honour these groups.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:18

Sirata Mustaqim Allah says at the end of

00:24:18 --> 00:24:21

this verse, he will guide them towards him

00:24:21 --> 00:24:23

on a straight path. And that is why

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

those people who have iman and those who

00:24:25 --> 00:24:26

are sincere

00:24:26 --> 00:24:29

in wanting to seek guidance, Allah guides them.

00:24:29 --> 00:24:32

Those people who want guidance, Allah guides because

00:24:32 --> 00:24:34

that is from the mercy of Allah Subhanahu

00:24:34 --> 00:24:36

Wa Ta'ala that if you are sincere in

00:24:36 --> 00:24:38

wanting to find the truth, Allah will guide

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

you.

00:24:39 --> 00:24:40

But if you are not sincere

00:24:40 --> 00:24:42

and you don't really want that truth, then

00:24:42 --> 00:24:44

you may not find that guidance. Allah

00:24:45 --> 00:24:47

guides as he pleases and

00:24:47 --> 00:24:49

he will guide these people

00:24:49 --> 00:24:51

to the straight path. And with that Insha'Allah

00:24:51 --> 00:24:53

we come to the end of today's episode.
