Ilana Lolly mean or should the Allah Allah Allah Allahu la sharika who 11 are widely known are feeling or shadow under the Vienna Muhammad Abdul Rasul almost of it. I mean Allahumma Salli was sending my radical Abdi koala sadaqa Muhammad Anwar early he was speaking engineering and bad Welcome to another episode of outer seal page by page and inshallah Allah today we are on page 58 of the Quran which is in surah Al Quran third juice of the Quran.

00:00:55 --> 00:01:32

And the previous episode, we were mentioning the story of a Saudi salatu salam and the portion of the story towards the end that Allah azza wa jal sent to the Saudis salatu salam, and then how people differed concerning him, and how some people elevated his status beyond that which Allah azza wa jal had afforded to him essentially, making him a god besides Allah subhanho wa Taala worshipping Him, besides Allah azza wa jal, and how Allah subhanaw taala relate or established for us a number of principles of the one who rejects the worship of Allah will be punished and the one who worships Allah azza wa jal alone will be honored and rewarded Allah subhanaw taala also in the previous

00:01:32 --> 00:02:09

episode, we mentioned how Allah azza wa jal says that even the logic that is used to say that recently Suriname is the Son of God, is a faulty logic. Because with that logic, there is a prophet that is more worthy of the recession than any Saturday's tsunami that is that our father at the medina salatu salam, and because of this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was willing to make mubadala to incur the wrath of Allah upon himself or the opposing group, whichever one was not speaking the truth as is mentioned in the Sunnah, when a group of people came to him from an Iran, this area of the Reuben Peninsula they were Christians and they came to the Prophet sallallahu

00:02:09 --> 00:02:45

alayhi wa sallam the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam was ready to make this type of MOBA Hara this open type of incurring the wrath and anger of Allah azza wa jal upon whichever party isn't truthful, and he presented himself with his family members said Allah Allah he will sell them and that is Allah azza wa jal says that indeed, this is the truth. No one has the right to be worshipped except Allah subhana wa Tada. Today's passage or this page that inshallah Tada we're going to cover today continues in that same theme, continues in that same message and that is, those people who don't worship Allah azza wa jal alone from the people of the previous scriptures claiming that actually

00:02:45 --> 00:03:11

no, this was the way of those prophets, Musa Raisa Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu, salam, this false these false claims that they make, that this was the region that their prophets left them upon. And Allah azza wa jal says that no, it was not, no prophet or messenger of Allah called to anything besides the hate. And nor will you find within the scriptures such a call, a clear cut call to anything other than the defeat of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:03:12 --> 00:03:29

So we begin today's episode with verse number 64. from Surah to elder Imran and that is the statement of Allah subhanho wa Taala are all the bIllahi min ash shaytani R Rajim Kalia and then kita Vitara lo you can imagine Salah

00:03:30 --> 00:03:39

in vain and our being in a coma learner Buddha Illa Allah, Allah, Buddha, Allah Allahu Allah, masha Lika be she Oh Allah,

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

Allah,

00:03:43 --> 00:04:30

Allah, for in our Lofa Pulu shad will be in New Moon, Say, O People of the Scripture, let us arrive at a statement that is common to all of us that we all agree upon, that we worship one God alone, we ascribe no partner to him, and none of us takes others besides Allah as Lord, if they turn away then say, As for us, we are want to submit to Allah azza wa jal we devote devote ourselves to Him Subhana wa Tada. This verse, which is verse 64, earlier but also to Lm Ron, it is said that the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam would write this verse when he was corresponding with the leaders with the other kings of the of the world of his time, especially the Christian kings. So there were a number

00:04:30 --> 00:04:59

of rulers and leaders of the time, obviously, they were Christian, in terms of their belief, he would when he would correspond because we know that a time came towards the end of his life salAllahu alayhi wasallam when he was writing and corresponding with some of these leaders, whether from the bison teen Romans or the Persians, or some of the other kingdoms that existed around the area surrounding in Arabian around Arabia, and one of the things that he would write one of the verses, that he would come and be written in correspondence to the Christian lords and kings and the Jews and so on, is this verse, verse 16.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:34

For in Surah to earlier Imran and that is because it speaks about the Common Ground. If this is what we find in all of the divine Scriptures then let us stay upon this and everything else therefore can't be true because there are discrepancies here and there. This is It is also said that the prophets of Allah why do you send them with sometimes recite this verse in his Sooners are fragile. So the sooner players have fragile salah, it is said that he will also recite this verse sometimes in it, and that is because of how comprehensive it is. Allah subhanaw taala says addressing the people of those scriptures who came before primarily Therefore the Jews and the Christians, he says,

00:05:34 --> 00:06:13

Say to them Tylo Isla Calumet in Salah, there let us arrive at a common steam common ground, something not all of us can agree upon. Because that is that is because all of these previous nations, the Jews, the Christians, they all claimed to worship God alone, even the Christians who say that there is a trinity and they essentially say that they are worshiping one God. They claim all of them are monotheistic religions in claim, in reality, obviously as we know that is not the case because we disagree with them on a number of fundamental issues, but the claim is that so Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran, let us come to the common ground that all of us do agree upon. The

00:06:13 --> 00:06:55

part of this claim that all of us can agree upon, is that Allah azza wa jal should be worshipped alone, that there is only one true god lad who should be Kobe he che, there should be no God besides him, while I am talking about guna or Baba min Dooney Allah and that we should take not one another as long as besides Allah as God's besides Allah, meaning that no human should have any party to this, no human should have any, any any portion of the Divine which is the right of Allah subhanaw taala alone, let us all agree upon this. So this is the call that is made to all of the people of the Christians and the Jews and so on the role of us, let us agree upon the aspect of the heat,

00:06:55 --> 00:07:30

which they find in their scriptures just as we find in the Quran, which is the same message that Allah azza wa jal sent to each and every single prophet and messenger that they should call their people to the worship of Allah azza wa jal alone as Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran elsewhere, as you mentioned, when we come on to that portion of the Quran in surah tunnel, we'll look at the birth Nephi equally material Rasulullah we sent to every single nation and messenger and I would love the call being worship Allah alone, which study bhakta would stay away from the false dieties and the false diety is everything and anything that is worship besides Allah subhanho wa

00:07:30 --> 00:08:06

taala. And so therefore, this was the claim made by all of the prophets of Allah, let us stay and stick to this. This is essentially what is going to be the theme of today's page that we're going to be discussing that Allah azza wa jal is going to say in your scriptures. This is what you find. Why don't you just stick to this? Why have you gone overboard? Why have you transgressed Why have you manipulated distorted your religion to include other things that are alien to it? Just as you find in our religion, the religion of all the sharing of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the revelation of the Quran, you find this pristine, pure call to the worship of Allah azza wa jal alone

00:08:06 --> 00:08:32

and his the heat for interval low but if they turn away, then say, As for us, where Muslims as for us, we submit to Allah and show our devotion to Allah subhanaw taala by following what we find within his revelation, and without going overboard in any of these issues. Allah subhanaw taala then says in verse 65, again on a similar theme, speaking to the people of the scriptures, yah del kita Bielema to

00:08:35 --> 00:08:38

June Fe Ibrahima. Ooh Zerah Zerah

00:08:40 --> 00:09:24

Zerah Tito aura to one energy you know, me melody. I fell in one. Oh people of the scriptures. Why do you argue about Ibrahim? When the Torah and the gospels were not revealed until after his time? Do you not understand? Allah azza wa jal is saying? That the people of the scriptures all of them, we all accept the Prophet Ibrahim Ali Sena. And this is why we often call the Abrahamic faiths, the Muslims, the Jews, the Christians, often referred to as the Abrahamic faiths, all of us believe in and accept the position and the status of this mighty messenger of Allah azza wa jal, Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, Allah subhanaw taala is saying, Why do you debate over him? Meaning each one claims

00:09:24 --> 00:09:59

that it's ours, the Jews say no, Ibrahim, we are upon his path. And the Muslims say we're up on his path and the Christians they were up on his path. Allah Azza did this thing or people of the scriptures, you Jews and Christians, you say that you're upon the path of Ibrahim, but what was Ibrahim upon them? Because the you say that what you find is only in the Torah only in Injeel. So if you say that Jesus was the Son of God, then what was Ibrahim worshipping? Who was Ibrahim worshipping? Isa Ali Salam had come down at that time there was no essentially set up. So what was he worshiping then? And if he was worshiping Allah subhanaw taala along with no partner, no son

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

No one else, then why isn't that sufficient for you? And the same goes for the Jews as well. As for the Muslims, we believe that we're on the path of Ibrahim, because we're following exactly what Ibrahim Ali Sinha was following. And that is the worship of Allah subhanaw taala alone. And so Allah azza wa jal is saying that this argument that you make the claim that you make each one of you saying, and trying to claim Ibrahim Ali salam for himself, that is something which is incorrect, because what you are doing is alien to the path of Ibrahim Ali Salatu was Salam. And that is why as we said in the previous episode, even in the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam, when

00:10:36 --> 00:11:09

you heard those people amongst the Arabs, and in the Quraysh, who were upon the way we brought him, and that is that they shunned the idolatry and the and the the polytheistic practices of their people, they wouldn't worship idols and they wouldn't worship these stones and trees and so on. besides Allah subhanaw taala they were known as being the people of the religion of Ibrahim Abu Hanifa. And the people that were upon the way of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, they wouldn't eat the meat that was sacrificed to idols, they wouldn't take these oats by their idols, they wouldn't do any other practices that were prevalent amongst their time. Because even amongst the coloration

00:11:09 --> 00:11:45

amongst the Arabs, they recognized that Ibrahim Ali Sinha, he was free of these practices that then later became prominent and became widespread amongst Arabia. So Allah azza wa jal is saying the same thing here with relation to the Jews and the Christians. The religion of Ibrahim Ali Salam is that he was a Muslim, that is submitted to Allah azza wa jal along that he worship Allah subhanaw taala alone. And so therefore that is the common ground that we find amongst all of these religions, that Allah azza wa jal should be worshipped along with no partner, no son, no helper, no spouse, nothing no one except and besides Allah subhanaw taala alone.

00:11:47 --> 00:11:58

In verse 66, Allah azza wa jal then says her to her Hola, Jojo tongue female that can be hearing Fatima to her

00:11:59 --> 00:12:39

junior female a Sarah can be here in Walla we are number one to latter anemone, you argue about some of the things of which you have knowledge. But why do you argue about things which you have now which are which you know nothing? Indeed Allah azza wa jal knows and you do not know. Allah subhanaw taala says that you have in your scriptures knowledge that you can use that you can use in terms of your arguments in terms of establishing your beliefs. If you look at your scriptures you will find the the the prophecies that were given of the coming of the prophets of Allah where it was sent him, you will see within them the calls to the dough heathen, the worship of Allah azza wa jal alone, you

00:12:39 --> 00:13:15

will see one of these things in your scriptures. So why don't you use them instead of making claims that you cannot support a real scriptures? The claims of not accepting the prophets of Allah while he was sending the claims of denying worshipping Allah azza wa jal alone, the claims that the Prophet Ibrahim and others were upon this way. These are things that are not substantiated in your own scriptures in your own evidences. So why are you making claims then that you can't substantiate and that is why in our religion as Islam in Islam, as we know, the Muslim is the one who follows revelation. Muslims are commanded to follow the book of Allah to follow the Sunnah and the practice

00:13:15 --> 00:13:51

of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if you find your religion is is is in accordance to what is in those two sources, the Quran and the Sunnah. Know that it is correct and it is something which Allah azza wa jal has legislated. And if you don't find a practice, you don't find that belief in either the Quran and the Sunnah, then know that it's something which is alien, something which is foreign, something which should be rejected or not followed. And that is what makes us as Muslims, different to the people of other religions, not about our whims. It's not about our desires. It's not about our people or our nation or our family or our culture, our tribe, our clan. It is about

00:13:51 --> 00:14:09

Revelation. What did Allah azza wa jal want from us? What does Allah subhanaw taala command and then irrespective of your language, your caste, your nation, your tribe, your color, your whatever it may be? Allah subhanaw taala has united you upon what is what is guidance and what is the truth?

00:14:10 --> 00:14:52

Allah subhanaw taala then says in verse 67, showing that for the reality of the situation, that these people who came before and they claim to worship Ibrahim, or they claim to worship other than Allah azza wa jal and the substantiated as being the original the prophets that this is what we find in Scripture and so on. And those people who lay claim to Brahim Ali salaam, even though he's free of their practices, Allah subhanaw taala says in verse number 67, Monica Anna Ibrahim hula hula de wala na stronie Wallach in Canada honey from Muslimah Wallach in Canada honey from Muslim Oh America and Amina motioning King Ibrahim was neither a Jew nor a Christian. He was upright and devoted to

00:14:52 --> 00:14:59

Allah, never an idolatry. And so if Ibrahim Ali's wasn't there before Christianity was there before

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

Shanachie existed, so he caught up in a Christian and it was there before Judaism existence, we kind of been a Jew than what was he? What was his what was he called? We as Muslims believed that all of these messengers and prophets of Allah were Muslims, they will call Muslims and they believed in Islam, and they worshipped Allah azza wa jal alone. And so Allah subhanaw taala says in this first study, Brahim Ali's setup was neither a Jew, nor was he a Christian, what was he? He was Hanifa Muslim and upright devoted muslim to Allah subhanaw taala. Never from amongst the idolaters in verse 68, Allah azza wa jal says, In olan CV Ibrahim Adelina terbaru, who will then be you will live in a

00:15:43 --> 00:16:20

man who wala who will you will mean, Allah subhanaw taala says and the people who are closest to Ibrahim are those who truly follow His ways, this prophet and the true believers indeed Allah azza wa jal is the Wali, the ally of those who are meaning the believers. Allah subhanaw taala says that the people who therefore have most right to Brahim if he wasn't a Jew, he wasn't a Christian. He didn't worship other than Allah azza wa jal, he had an important to other than the docread of Allah subhanaw taala. The one who have has most right to Ibrahim are those who truly followed him, whether that's at his time when he was sent as the Messenger of Allah, the people who followed him and his

00:16:20 --> 00:16:58

path on Instagram, or those people who follow in his footsteps and that is this prophet meaning our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and therefore the people who follow Him. And that is why in our religion as we know Ibrahim Ali Salam has an elevated honored, respected status and we are told as Allah azza wa jal commanders in the Quran to follow him on candidate look most word on Hassan fie Brahim, there is in you in the Brahim a good example for you. Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran, and many of the aspects of our worship, especially when it comes to pilgrimage, the Hajj and Umrah is taken from the story of Ibrahim alayhi salam and his family. And so Ibrahim Ali Islam

00:16:58 --> 00:17:35

has a status within our religion. And there is a status that is honored and it is respected. And the crux of that status or the foundation of that status is that he we follow his message and that is the message of what are the Prophets and Messengers, including our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we worship Allah azza wa jal are known. So you can see therefore, in the number of episodes that we've done so far throughout Surah, Baqarah, Surah Surah. Two, Imran that one of the core messages of the Quran that is repeated, emphasized mentioned in so many different ways, is establishing this principle of Tawheed. There is nothing more important, nothing more

00:17:35 --> 00:18:04

pivotal in the life of the person than to understand this one concept, the concept of worshipping Allah azza wa jal alone, look at how many times it is emphasized, how many different ways that is mentioned by Allah subhanaw taala because that is the difference between salvation and damnation. The difference between Allah's reward and his punishment, to believe and worship Allah subhanaw taala alone. And so Allah azza wa jal mentioned this here, once again, Allah subhanaw taala then says in verse 69, what the

00:18:05 --> 00:18:42

effect will mean again kita below you will be Luna Kumar Manuel de Luna in LA fossa, homage on some of the people of the book would dearly love to lead you astray. But they only lead themselves astray though they do not realize it. Allah subhanaw taala says that the people of the book would love or a group from amongst them would love to cause you to go astray just as they are astray. They would love for you to, to go and be a Christian or a Jew or to follow another path other than the path that you are upon referring to obviously, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is something which they would love. And essentially that is what they wanted. They wanted this final messenger to

00:18:42 --> 00:19:18

be from amongst them the questions wanted to lay claim to him, the Jews wanted to lay claim to him, they wanted him to be an extension of their of their own tradition. But Allah azza wa jal through his infinite wisdom and knowledge he sent him amongst the Arab so that he will not be claimed by only one group over another brother that he would be a universal messenger for all of mankind. Allah azza wa jal says that they would want you to go astray by following them, but they only lead themselves astray, because they are neglecting the true message that you have bought and the allowing the emotions, their biases, their alliances to overcome guidance or to overcome the truth

00:19:18 --> 00:19:54

in terms of the guidance that they should be following. And that is what Marzotto Lin says in verse number 70 Yeah, handle kita be limited for owner be Tila he want to Shadowmoon or people of the book Why do you deny Allah's revelations? When you can see that they are true? Meaning you see the signs of Allah azza wa jal, you see the signs that were bought by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you see the prophecies that are mentioned in your own scriptures. Why are you disbelieving and denying and all of that was it is present amongst you? And that is why the in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there were a number of Christians and Jews as we've mentioned

00:19:54 --> 00:20:00

before that accepted Islam. Now list of them being the famous illustrious companion Abdullah notes

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

salaam Radi Allahu Akbar was from the Jews of Medina that accepted Islam. Allah azza wa jal is saying that you have the signs if he was sincere, you would follow them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sent them in verse number 71, which is the first verse of the next page and we'll finish with this verse. Because Allah azza wa jal again addresses the people of the book and he says, Yeah, del kita be limited will be soon I'll have gobble bow tell you what, to monal hepco, Tana moon, or people of the book, Why do you mix truth with falsehood? Why do you hide the truth when you recognize it?

00:20:34 --> 00:21:09

Allah subhanaw taala therefore the same to the people of the book? Why do you reject the truth when you know the truth in your book? And why do you also mix the truth with falsehood? And why do you hide the truth when you recognize it? And that is because they will accept certain elements and then they will change it. They see that we only worship one God, but then they say that Jesus was the Son of God. And the two claims then become a contradiction, and they become problematic. And so they mix some of the truth with some of the falsehood. They accept certain things and they reject other things. They say We believe in all of the messengers, but then they reject the Prophet sallallahu

00:21:09 --> 00:21:45

alayhi wasallam. And so Allah azza wa jal is saying that do not mix the truth and falsehood, no, reject the signs of Allah Azza wa Jalla. You see, even though these verses are primarily about the People of the Scripture, the people of the book, it is important to note as Muslims, that these are principles that apply to us as well. When you find revelation in the Quran and the Sunnah don't reject it, as some people do when they come across verses of the Quran or Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, they reject the Distort they misinterpret. They try to, in one way or another, try to try to explain it away. And sometimes what Muslims do is they mix elements of truth

00:21:45 --> 00:22:14

with falsehood. They mix some of what they find in Revelation with some of the desires that they want to follow. And that is something that has happened throughout the ages in Muslim history as well. And so Allah azza wa jal is warning us this is not the way of the believers the believers are those who follow revelation, what they find in the Quran, what they find in the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they follow it to the best of their ability. And we've done a shallow title we'll come to the end of today's episode BarakAllahu li come with some Allahu ala Nabina Muhammad didn't want it he

00:22:15 --> 00:22:17
