Allah He Mina Shamp on one Jean Bismillah young man walking LM dot long as a hotline

me, in loving nursing in our own Falken Do you not see that Allah has made all that is on earth to be of service to you, and the ships that sail on the sea by His Command, and he holds back the sky so that it cannot fall on the earth except by His leaf. Verily, Allah is Most Compassionate, most merciful to humankind. Well, who want to let me come from Miami to consume my Yoshi eco come in,
like a fall is He Who gave you life, then will cause you to die, then he will bring you back to life fairly man is indeed ungrateful. That is, Have you not seen with your own eyes and intellect the comprehensive blessings and favors of your Lord, Allah has made all the A's on Earth to be of service to you, including animals, plants, and inanimate objects. Everything that is on earth has been made to be of service to the sons of Adam, animals which they use for writing, carrying loads, and other purposes, as well as food and other kinds of benefits, trees and fruits that they eat. For man has been given the ability to plant them and make use of them. And minerals that man extracts
from the earth and makes use of them. And the ships have also been made to be of service to you, as they sail on the sea, by His Command carrying you and your trade good. And they take you from one place to another and you extract from the sea ornaments that you were by His mercy towards you. Allah holds back the skies so that it cannot fall on the earth. We're not for his mercy and might, the sky would have fallen onto the earth destroying all those on it and killing everyone on it. Verily Allah sustains the heavens in the earth, let's say decline. And if they were to decline, there is no one who could sustain them other than other than him, very useful bearing Earth
forgiving. Verily, Allah is Most Compassionate, Most Merciful merciful to humankind, he is more merciful to them than their parents, and then their own selves. Hence he wants what is good for them, whereas they want that which is evil and harmful for themselves. By His mercy He caused all these things to be of service to them is He Who gave you life, when He created you from nothing, then will cause you to die. After giving you life then he will he will bring you back to life after death in order to requite the doer of good for his good deeds and the doer of evil for his evil these very man in general except for those whom Allah blesses is indeed grateful for the blessings
of Allah has indeed, is indeed ungrateful for the blessings of Allah. He is ungrateful to Allah and does not acknowledge his kindness. Rather, he made this believe in the resurrection and the might of his Lord. This is one of the central themes of this Surah Surah 200, which is verse number 66. And there is the issue of resurrection. So Allah azza wa jal begins in the Surah by speaking about resurrection and the hour and how close it is, and some of the terrorists that will take place on your piano. And then Allah subhanaw taala speaks about a hunch as we went through in detail yesterday. And one of the major objectives of Hajj is the reminder of death and the reminder of the
resurrection. And that is why the
people that go for lunch, especially in the olden days, people that used to go for lunch, they would normally right there, we'll see before they would go, because many of them will know that perhaps they're not going to come back. Some of them takes a month, two months to get to Mecca, stay there for a month come back two months. Sometimes you don't hear about those people for four or five, six months before they return to their homes. And so people just right there will see these two right there final will be for the US to leave for hedge because there was a reminder of death. And even in our times you've seen how many people pass away on hedge every hedge every player after in the days
of hedge this Jenner is people are passing away people are dying. That's not including some times may Allah azza wa jal keep us safe. When the stampede or some type of tragedies take place. This atonement reminds people of death. And then for the people making hunch that resting those two white garments that is a reminder of the Shroud of the person that's going to die or that is dead, in his burial. All of those different things that we have there are reminders of the gatherings on the plains of alpha. And Menard was one of those multitudes of people just the way that Allah azza wa jal will gather people on your monthly Yama to stand before Him. And so Allah azza wa jal is
mentioning the issue of the AMA and linking it to things that we can see from the power and the abilities of Allah azza wa jal, and from the many signs that Allah subhanaw taala has placed within the heavens and earth. And here Allah azza wa jal then says in verse 66, he is the one who gives you life, then he will cause you to die, and then he will bring you back to life once again. And if a person reflects just generally each and every single day, every single time that you hear of some tragedy, some calamity, someone passing away, how many reminders of death does Allah subhanaw taala give to us from the traps or Satan is that he makes you desensitized to it doesn't make you
sensitive to them. And so you hear about it so much, it becomes normal. You see, so many times it becomes normal. And so when the issue or the reminder of death is given, sometimes even when you pray a janazah you pray the janazah like every other prayer, you walk away, like every other prayer, but it doesn't remind you of death because you've become distanced from that reminder. And that is why as we know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to recommend that the Companions go, and the Muslims go to the graveyards, because when you're there, and you're surrounded just by graves, and all there are those people that only a few weeks ago, months ago, years ago were living and now
they've passed away, and only Allah azza wa jal knows how much time we have upon this earth. And so the Sunnah, and the Sharia from its objectives, is to remind you that this dunya this world is limited transient and that there is a life that is more permanent. And so the believer is the one who works for what is permanent and doesn't worry so much about what is temporary but from the traps of shaytan is that he makes you think only about the temporary and makes you know what is permanent
liquidity I'm letting y'all second as you go, fella you're gonna you're not gonna feel what you are, you know big in NACA Allah, who, still the Forever every nation we do creative ways of worship which they follow. So do not let them dispute with you concerning this matter, but call them to your Lord, for you are indeed rightly guided. We're in the loo Kathakali Allah who are Allah movie Matt Malone. And if they do dispute dispute with you then say Allah knows best what you are doing.
Allah when we are going back home young woman, the mighty FEMA Clanton fee totally foon. Allah will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection concerning that, wherein you differ, LM LM and aloha LM uma is
you will, in Lika, fie kita, but in other Nika longing and see, do you not know that Allah knows all that is in the heavens and on earth, very that is inscribed in a record very that is easy for Allah. Here Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that he decreed for every nation its ways of worship, which they differ in some aspects, but they are all based on justice and wisdom, as Allah subhanho wa Taala says elsewhere, to each community among you, we have prescribed Allah and a clear way, if Allah has a word he would have gave you and made you a single community, but he will be otherwise in order to test you in what He has given you. So hastened to do the deeds to Allah you will also
return then he will inform you about the matters concerning which you deferred and so this is something again, which we know that is established in the Quran and the Sunnah, and that is the role of the prophets came with the single central message, but the individual shall he is may have differed, the individual laws at the head for every single one of those nations may have differed from profit to profit. And we have examples of this even when the student of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and even in the Quran as we mentioned before, for example, in Surah Al Imran, in the verse concerning Iacobelli Senem could look the army can handle the Benny's raw eel in them hard
Rama is right you know and NFC from the shooting of the
prophets before is that a person could make something haram upon themselves that Allah had made halal. So I don't want to eat meat I will make it haram upon myself for the sake of Allah azza wa jal is an act of worship that was Halal in those nations. But is it halal for us? No. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he tried to do something similar with honey was told limit to heavy movement Hello hola hola. Why have you made haram or Allah has made halal for you. So you can stay away from something out of preference, but you can't stay away from something in order to make it haram for you when Allah has made the halal. So there's differences between these rules, but
overall the general concepts are the same. So he prayer fasting Xikar, the worship of Allah azza wa jal, justice, wisdom all of this stuff, it is generally the same, but an individual minut details there are differences from profit to profit from nation to nation, and that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when you describe the prophets of Allah, He said they are like equally a lot. They are like paternal brothers, meaning they have the same father meaning that the origin is the same to heed the worship of Allah alone calling to Allah azza wa jal, but their mothers are different meaning each one may have their different laws. Some things were halal for one nation
haram for another, and Allah azza wa jal change those rules as he pleases, and so fit until obviously the time of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
which they follow that is the act in accordance with that according to their situations. So there should not be any objection to any set of divine laws, especially from the illiterate polytheist who are clearly ignorant. Once the message of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam is proven with evidence, it becomes obligatory to respond to everything he bought by accepting it and submitting and not raising objections. Hence, Allah says, so do not let them dispute with you concerning this matter. That is, do not let those who reject your dispute with you and object to some of what you have brought to them on the basis of their corrupt thinking, such as when they disputed the issue of
meat founded on the basis of their false analogy, saying, you eat what you kill, but you do not eat what Allah kills. And when they said, selling is like usury and similar objections concerning which there is no need to answer these particular objections, when they are denying the message. And there is no point in arguing about these issues in isolation from the main issue, which is the message itself, because issues should be discussed within the right framework and context. So amongst the Quraysh, it was considered normal for them to eat, carry on carry on is meter dies of its own accord, dies by itself, an animal that dies by itself, maybe fell off a building or eaten half eaten
by a predator? Well, they will consider that to be hard for them. And they would say, Allah decreed that it's killed, and so we eat it. And likewise, they would have rebelled, and they would use these different types of of justifications as the author mentions in order to say that it is permissible if the one who raises these objections was denying the message of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam claims that he is arguing in order to learn and find the answer, it should be said to him, what we discussed with you is whether the message is sound or not. Otherwise his limiting is limiting the discussion to this issue is indicative of his stubbornness and attempts to frustrate
you. And Allah instructed His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to call people to his Lord, with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and to focus on that, regardless of whether anyone objects or not, nothing should deter you from calling people to Allah, because you are indeed rightly guided for the path you are following is moderate, and will bring you to your goal as it includes knowledge of the truth and acting upon it. So you are sure of the of the matter that you are following. And you are certain of your religion, which will cause you to adhere strongly to what your Lord has enjoined upon you, you are not following a manner that is that fault or something that is fabricated, such
that you would go along with people and follow their whims and desires and be hindered by their objections. This is similar to the verse in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says, so put your trust in Allah, for you are on the path of truth. Moreover, the word for you are indeed rightly guided our response based on sound, rational thought.
So the so the objections of those who objects to minor issues of Islamic teaching, because the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is following guidance and all that the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam brought whether minor or major issues as part of the guidance, the beauty, justice, fairness and wisdom of these issues may be known by means of reasoning and sound thinking, and may be reached by reflecting on the details of what is enjoyed and what is prohibited. And this was some some of the issues of the courageous to deal with some of the coloration some of the firearms, when they would come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they would focus on the smaller issues,
they would say, put in your study, or you say this is about and we think that that's right and so on. And essentially, they're moving away from what is the central issue? What is the central issue, that the heat of Allah azza wa jal, the worship of Allah alone, they're worshipping idols, and they and they want to focus on the small issues concerning some of the camp and some of the rulings of the Sharia. And so Allah azza wa jal was tending the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it was a principle of Dawa, that when he called people to Islam, the first
thing that you have to focus on is upon death or hate, and people will often come to you, and they will start on these other issues, women's rights or this issue or that issue, and the diverting away from the central issue. And that is why you always have to bring them back to the debate of Allah azza wa jal. So likewise here, the author is saying that they would come and they would say, but I don't agree with this. And we eat this type of meat, and we have this type of transaction. And they're speaking about those small issues and they're ignoring the major issue which is the fact that they worship other than Allah azza wa jal, and Allah instructed him to refrain from disputing
with them in this situation, as he said, and if they do dispute with you, then say, then say, Allah knows best what you are doing. That is, He knows your aims and intentions. And he will requite you for that on the Day of Resurrection, on which Allah will judge between you concerning that we're any different. So whoever follows the straight path will be among the people of Paradise, and whoever deviates from it will be one of the people of hell. One aspect of the perfect nature of his judgment is that is based on knowledge. Therefore, Allah tells us that his knowledge and his record are all encompassing, encompassing, do you not know that Allah knows all that is in the heavens and on
earth, nothing is hidden from him, of either visible or hidden matters, what was what has already happened, and what is yet to come, Allah has inscribed in, in a record of that knowledge, which encompasses encompasses all that is in heaven is in heaven and on earth. That record is local level.
And that knowledge was inscribed when Allah created the pen and said to it, right, it said, What should I write? He said, great, what would happen until the Day of Resurrection, a sound Hadith recorded by a widow Thunder is recited the Hadith in the wording of the Hadith or Allah azza wa jal first created the pen. And he said to the pen, right, and the pen replied, What should I write? And Allah azza wa jal said write everything that will take place until the end of time until Yeoman PM. And so the scholars from the and we mentioned this before scholars have amongst themselves a discussion as to what was the first of Allah's creations to be created. And some of the scholars
said pen based upon this hadith and others different and they said that it was the optionals origin or some of them even said the water was the first creation Allah knows best. Early that is easy for Allah is easy for him even if your imagination cannot grasp it for it's easy for Allah Subhana Allah to encompass all things with his knowledge and to inscribe the inner record in such a way that events will. The events will unfold exactly as written in that record.
Why are you doing I mean, dude? Hey, man, I'm Eunice Zerby he's gone.
Laser la Hoon be here I'm one body mean? I mean, no see, yet they worship besides Allah, that for which no authority has been sent down to them and that of which they have no knowledge for the wrongdoers. There will be no helpers.
What either to fly him tuna Vienna 1030 For fear will do everything I can for the moon called Yucca Dune is to not be lazy and I had to low Nayeli him i attina will ever own a bit Oh can be shattering man that you come and now why the Hello Nadine. I get federal won't be selling mostly. When are clear revelations are recited to them, you will notice repugnance in their faces in the faces of those who disbelieve they can barely restrain themselves from assaulting those who recite or revelations to them, say O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So I will tell you of something worse than what you feel at present is the fire which Allah has promised to those who disbelieve or
hapless journey journeys. And here Allah describes the true nature of the policies who regard others as equal to Him, and tells us that they are in the worst condition, for they have no basis for what they do, of equating others to him to him, they have no knowledge to support that, rather is blind imitation of what they learned from their misguided forefathers. A person may have no knowledge of what he does, although at the same time, there is proof for what he does have which he has no knowledge. But in this case, Allah tells us that he has not sent down any authority for that. In other words, there is no proof of support or permitted. Rather, what has been sent down is
definitive proof that is invalid and false.
Then Allah warns the wrongdoers among them who stubbornly reject the truth for the wrongdoers. There will be no helpers to protect them from the punishment of Allah when it befalls them. To these people who have no knowledge of what they are following, have any intent intention of following the signs and guidance that have come to them? Or are they content with what they have? Or they contend with what they are following the falsehood? Allah refers to that when he says, When are clear revelations that are the great revelations of Allah that makes truth distinct from falsehood are recited to them. They pay no attention to them, and make no effort to understand
And then rather you will notice Republic repugnance in the faces of those who disbelieve because of the hatred and resentment. You see their faces frowning and displeased. They can barely restrain themselves from assaulting those who recite a revelation to them. That is they can barely restrain themselves from attacking them or in order to kill them, or beat them severely, because of the severity of their resentment and animosity towards them, and towards the truth has happened in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have numerous generations at the beginning of Islam, when the Companions used to go out and attempt to read the Quran that they would be attacked
by, by the kuffar by the Polish, and from amongst them is indeed Mr. Audible, the Allahu Wang, and even misheard that he said, was one of the first people from the Companions after the prophets and obviously the Prophet sunnah means to openly go out and read Quran. But he said they've been mistreated or the Allah one was the first of the companions to do so. And it has said in that narration, it's a long story. But it said essentially, that when he wanted to go out and do it, they said to him Don't go, because they've been through this we know from his description was a slight man, thin, small, not a big structure or build. And so people feared for him, they said, Don't go
out. But he said, No, I will go out. And so he went about the hola Guan and they beat him. And they beat him so severely that some of the companions read that he had died. And then he came back and he was recuperating from underneath, and I want to go again, to recite the Quran to them. And so this is what Allah has already seen that when they would hear the verses of Allah subhanaw taala, such as the hatred for Islam, that they would be those people that they will be the companions that they will be the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but when falsehood was being recited, they would be happy. They can barely restrain themselves from us holding those who recite revelation to them. That
is they can barely restrain themselves from attacking them in order to kill them or beat them severely, because of the severity of their resentment and animosity toward animosity towards them and towards the truth. This attitude of the disbelievers is the worst of attitudes, and it's evil is the greatest of evils, but there is something that is even worse than that, namely the state which they will ultimately reach. Hence, Allah says, say, O Muhammad, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Chouteau you have something worse than that you feel at present is the fire which Allah has promised to those who disbelieve a hapless Journey's End is evil. It's evil is immense, and it's hardship and pain
will constantly increase.
Yeah. Johann Hari by Methoden first me
in a Latina Dong when I mean Dooney la he Lang Yahoo, local Dubai, Dubai. Whether we do it Mr. Woodleigh. Well as Lobo Hormoz Dubai Abu che analyzed to mean borrow football label to old people, an example is being presented. So listen to it. those on whom you call besides Allah can never create even a fly, even if they all came together to do that. And if the fly snatches something away from them, they cannot recover, recover it from it. How we are both the pursuer and the pursuit and the pursuit. Now kadang Maha taka daddy in law halacha. We your noisy is they have not given due recognition to Allah. Verily, Allah is indeed strong almighty. This is an example that Allah gives
us the other abhorrent nature of idol worship, highlighting the fact that those who worship them have no sense for all the idols are weak, he says are people that is addressed to both believers and disbelievers, the believers, increase in knowledge and insight was proof is established against the disbelievers. An example is being presented that is listened attentively, attentively and understand what it implies, you should not receive hideously or listen in attentively. Rather, you should listen properly and pay attention. This is the example given those on whom you call besides Allah, that is everything that is called upon besides Allah can never create even a fly, which is the most
insignificant and ignoble have created things, they are not able to create even this feeble Creek creature, so it's more unlikely that they could create anything greater than that, even if they all came together to do that. And what is more, if the fly snatches something away from them, they cannot recover it from recovering from it. That is most helplessness and you will find in the text of the Quran and the Sunnah generally, when Allah azza wa jal wrote the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam want to show the significance of something often the example that is given is of a flight or a mosquito one of those very small insects that people often considered to be annoyances you know
the annoying and the grievances and they harm and people consider them to be filthy and, and people don't like them in the food and amongst them them in the company larger often. And in the sooner you find often the example is made, when something is considered to be insignificant and worthy. That is often compared to those types of things flies and mosquitoes and nuts
are weak or they are both the pursuer, namely the one that is worshipped besides Allah and the pursued namely the fly. Both of them are weak and even weaker than both of them is the one who gets attached to this weak entity and gives it the same status as the
In the Lord of the Worlds this example from Allah subhanaw taala is that you have an idol. And people come and they give food offering to it, give food as offerings to the idol, a fly will come, and they will take from that food. And Allah azza wa jal says that this idol has no ability to stop that fly from taking from its offering offering was given to it. It's his, it belongs to him, someone gave it to him out of worship and servitude and what have you doesn't have even the ability to stop it or have a valuable one robe, both the pursuer and the pursuit, both of them are weak. So in the hair in the country of Shepherd Masada Rahimullah Tara he says the pursuer is the one that is
worshipped besides Allah and the pursuit is the fly another said the opposite. Some said that it is the fly that is pursuing the food. And the and the the idol is the one that is being pursued. And others like the author changed and around, meaning that the fly has now taken the food and his flying away, and the item doesn't have the ability to take it back from it. And both of this is an example of how weak these idols are, and how weak the flights and both of them are weak in that regard. And that is what the Prophet told us and allow us to them the Hadith al Bukhari, the original Abu Huraira, the Allah one, that Allah azza wa jal said that who is more oppressive than
the one who seeks to create like my creation, so let them create even a seed or a grain of what I have created, even a seed or grain, besides what Allah azza wa jal has created, such a one has not given due recognition to Allah, as he has regarded that which is lacking and incapable in all aspects at equal to the one who is self sufficient and most strong in all aspects. He has regarded that which has no power to bring benefit or form from itself or from anyone else, and has no power to cause death give life or resurrect, as equal to the one who brings benefits and words of form, who gives an withholds the ultimate sovereign, who controls him in all ways. And this is one of the
major reasons for ship and for innovations even amongst the Muslims and so on when it comes to Allah. subhanaw taala mapathon Allah Haqqani they don't give to Allah azza wa jal the recognition that he deserves what that means is often the poor Allah azza wa jal in the confines of the laws of the universe, and the laws have their own rationale and their logic. I will treat Allah azza wa jal based upon my understanding what I think what makes sense to me. And so we take Allah subhanaw taala, who is high and far above and removed from these laws, and we place him into the situation. The disbelievers do this. And amongst the Muslims, those who have issues in terms of their freedom
when it comes to the belief of Allah azza wa jal, they do the same. They take Allah subhanaw taala and they rationalize, oh Allah azza wa jal can't be like this because that doesn't make sense. And he can't do that because that doesn't make sense to us. Does not that's what they do. It is one of the greatest reasons why that it was repeated more than once in the Quran, this issue that they don't give to Allah azza wa jal the recognition that he deserves Subhana wa Tada. Verily Allah is in the strong Almighty, that is He is perfect in strength and perfect in my and because of the perfect nature of his strength and mind. The four locks of all creatures are in his hand, and nothing moves
or holds except by His will. Whatever Allah wills happens, and whatever he does not will does not happen. By His perfect strength. He keeps a firm hold on the heavens and the earth, lest they fall apart. By His perfect strength, He will resurrect our people the first and the last of them with a single trumpet blast. By His strength by his perfect strength he destroyed the tyrants and stubborn nations with something that is very easy for him and some of his punishment
a long we'll stuffy mean I didn't matter
in karate, also long one Wamena and NAS in Allah has sent me I'm mostly a lot uses messengers from among the angels and from among humankind. Verily Allah is all hearing all seeing ya allah mama been I add him why my father fell home. What ILA law he told her out.
And he knows he knows what was before them and what will be after them and is to Allah that all things will return. Having explained his perfect nature and the weakness of the idols, and that he alone is deserving of worship Allah subhanho wa Taala now speaks of the messengers, and how they differ from other people because of their distinct virtues. Allah chooses messengers from among the angels and among among humankind. That is He selects messengers from among the angels, and messengers from among humankind, to be the best of their type. As they combined all noble characteristics, and are the most deserving of being chosen. The messengers can only be from among
the very best of humankind, for the one who chose and selected them is not aware of the reality of things. It's not unaware of the reality of things, and is not the case that he knows some things and not others, rather, the one who chooses them is the or hearing or seeing, whose knowledge hearing and vision and compares all things. His choice of them is based
On his knowledge, that they are qualified for that and they are that they are fit to receive revelation. As he says elsewhere, Allah knows best where to place his message. And it is to Allah that all things will return. That is He sends the messengers who call people to Allah, then some of the people respond and some reject the call that this is the role of the messengers. As for the required of those deeds is up to Allah and He will judge on the basis of his grace and justice.

finding out women and men who allow one young men as we drive in the Cause of Allah as you ought to strive. He has chosen you and has not imposed any hardship on you in religion. The religion of your father Ibrahim, is he Allah Who named you Muslims, both before in this Quran
so that the messenger might be a witness over you and you might be witnesses of humankind. So established prayer gives the care and hold fast to Allah for years you're protected, an excellent protector and an excellent helper. Here Allah subhanho wa Taala enjoys his slave is believing slaves to pray and mentions in particular Bowing and prostration because of the virtue of these deeds, and because they are an essential part of the prayer and of worshiping Him which which brings comfort and and consolation to one who is grieved. His Lordship and generosity towards his slaves require them to develop to develop their worship to Him alone and make it incumbent upon them to do good
deeds in general. And these two positions of record and sujood as we know from the Sunnah are extremely beloved to Allah subhanaw taala because there are signs of humility and submission before Allah azza wa jal and the lower that a person goes in those positions, the more humble they are. So when they go into the such that it is a state of even greater humility, and that is when the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a caribou Maya Kona abdomen Robbie was searching. The closest place that you can be to Allah azza wa jal meaning in terms of submission is when you're in a position of search then when you're in a position of frustration, and so the prophets of Allah
where it was sitting because of these two states, these two positions and the importance he forbade people to recite the Quran during, as is in the notion of Abdullah the Allah one the prophet of Islam forbade me to read Quran in ROCOR and in sujood. So instead, it is a time of the Quran and tisby and making dua to Allah subhanho wa taala.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has made prosperity and success dependent upon these things, as he says, so that you may prosper, that is so that you may attain what you seek and be saved from what you fear. There is no way to prosper and succeed except by being sincere in worship of the Creator alone and striving to be of benefit to slaves. Whoever is enabled to do to do that will attain a high level of happiness, success and prosperity. Strive in the Cause of Allah as you ought to strive. Striving means doing one's utmost to attain the desired goal striving in the Cause of Allah as one ought to strive means complying in full with the commands of Allah and calling people to his path by all
possible means, such as offering sincere advice, teaching, fighting, disciplining, rebuking, exerting and so on. Look at these two statements of Allah subhanaw taala the one that we just took a short while ago, people have not given to Allah azza wa jal, the recognition that he deserves. And here Allah azza wa jal is saying strive for the sake of Allah in the manner that is deserving. So to know Allah azza wa jal and his rights upon you and to worship Allah subhanaw taala. Then according to those rights, those two things are extremely important for the believer in terms of their success and salvation. Number one, learning about Allah azza wa jal knowing His names and attributes,
knowing the rights of Allah subhanaw taala and know Allah is really saying once you know them, then spend your whole life dedicated to serving that purpose. So all you do is worship Allah azza wa jal and find different ways of pleasing Allah subhanaw taala with Jaya who do Fila haka jihad, strive for Allah in a way that is befitting every single moment of your life should be towards that goal.
He has chosen you that is he has selected you are Muslim from among among humankind.
And, and has chosen and approved of Islam for for you and he has chosen for you the best of books and the best of messengers. So respond to this immense blessing by striving as you should, because some people may imagine that the phrase of striving the cause of Allah as you ought to strive may imply imposition of a duty that is beyond their ability to fulfill or is too difficult to carry out. Allah dispels this notion by saying and has not imposed any hardship on you in religion, that is, he has not imposed any difficulty rather He has made it very easy and straightforward. Firstly, he never enjoys or makes binding anything, but that which is easy to carry out and is not burned to
somewhere too hard. If there is some reason to reduce the burden he will do some of what he has enjoyed waving info or important and important principle is based on is based on this verse, which is that if a command becomes too difficult, it becomes a cause for the scholars to review the matter and issue a fatwa to make it easier. And necessity makes prohibited things permissible. Based on that there are many minor rulings that are well known in the books of the scholars, the religion of your father, Ibrahim, that is the religion and commands mentioned, or the other religion of your father Ibrahim, in which he persisted, so adhere to it and cling to it. And Abraham Ali Salam is one
of those messengers of Allah, who knew the rights of Allah subhanaw taala and spent his life striving to submit to the will of Allah azza wa jal and his commands an example of that is when he was thrown in the fires as mentioned in some of the narrations in the books with the seal, there will be Brahim it Sam was thrown into the regen fire. Some of those generations see the Jubilee dollies Saddam came to him and he said, What can I do for you? How can I help you? What do you need for me? And Ibrahim Ali Salman replied as for you, I need nothing from you. But as from Allah azza wa jal, then I need his help and His mercy and that's that the prophets of Allah knew the words of
Allah subhanaw taala upon them, that even though Jubilee that he said I was coming to him at that moment of difficulty, sent from Allah subhanaw taala he still doesn't apply this to Jubilee, early salah, but he knows the rights of Allah subhanaw taala and he knows the manner in which you should call upon Allah azza wa jal is He Allah, Who named you Muslims, both before that is in the previous books, which are well known. And in this Quran, so this name of yours is well known past and present, so that the messenger might be a witness over you, to your deeds, both good and bad. And you might be witnesses over humankind, because you are the best community ever brought forth for the
benefit of humankind, a moderate, fair and exemplary community, you testify that the messengers indeed conveyed the message to their nations. And you testify that the nation did indeed receive the message conveyed by their messengers. And Allah has told you in his book, so step,
as Allah has told you in his book, so establish prayer, with all its essential parts, fulfilling its conditions and performing it properly. And whenever the Quran says established the prayer, that's what it means. It means the prayer with all of its conditions, all of its pillars, all of its obligations, that's what it means. And Allah Azza doesn't go through each time. What are those details because we know from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that's what he means to pray. And unless you fulfill those aspects is not considered to be surah. So someone who comes and he doesn't come with although, or someone is praying, and he doesn't make requests to do
it properly. We don't call them a person who's prayed as happened in that case of the man who came and he was praying incorrectly. And then he came to the Prophet Solomon he gave synapse and he said to him, go back and pray for you didn't pray, the man prayed, he stood up and he miracle but he wasn't doing it correctly. The Prophet of Islam said that's not called the Salah. So that's why the authors in Books Authors often say without the Masada to zakah, meaning with all of its conditions and obligations, because if you don't fulfill them, then you haven't been considered to be someone who has prayed or given Zakhar gives the care as you're obliged to, giving it to those who are
entitled to it. Have gratitude to Allah for what he has bestowed upon you, and hold festival to Allah, that is, seek His help and put your trust in Him. And do not trust in your own power and strength. For he is your Protector, who is taking care of your affairs and managing managing them well. Disposing of your affairs in your best interest, an excellent protector, that is the best protective the one who takes him as an ally. So he helps him to attain that helps him to attain what he has, what he is seeking, and an excellent helper to the one who seeks his help. So he walked off from him where he fears this the end of the commentary of sorbitol hedge of praise and thanks are
for Allah and May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam family and his companions abundantly until the day of judgment. So now we move on to Sora to look me in on which is the 23rd chapter of the Quran. And there is a mucky Surah consisting of 118 verses Bismillah young man you're walking in the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, Most merciful God there if law has meaning, the believers have indeed attained true success.

hula retun. So to be the eres,
Ella the nyati through another favorite those of whom fee ha ha they do,
who will inherit paradise they will abide there in forever. Hear Allah praises and commends his believing slaves highlighting their success and bliss and the means by which they attain that this implicitly urges us to acquire the same characteristics and encourage us to do so. So the individual should take stock of himself and others measuring against these standards. Those he will know what he he and others have a faith and the level of extent of that faith has sort of resulted in these first opening verses in his opening passages we can see Allah subhanaw taala describes to us the believers and gives to us the characteristics of the meaning. And in that famous hadith of Ramadan
Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu when she was asked, What was the character of the prophets of Allah? What do you send them? She replied, kinda Holy Quran. His character was the Quran in the narration of the wedding in Al Bukhari is a double move frog. She said that if you want to know what that means, then with opening passage of Surah to minimum read these verses, meaning all of these things that Allah azza wa jal mentions here, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam apply them in the best of ways. The believers have indeed attained to success, that is, they are victorious, blessed and successful, for they have attained everything that one may seek among the perfect attributes of the believers,
who believe in Allah and in the messengers is the fact that they humble themselves in their prayers. Humble focus in prayer means presence of mind before Allah subhanho wa taala, bearing in mind how close he is, thus the believers heart is comforted. His mind is put at rest, his movements become still and he is not distracted, as he stands humbly before his Lord, focusing on everything that he says and does in his prayer, from beginning to end, does he dispose devilish whispers and bad thoughts? This is the essence and purpose of prayer. And this is what will be written down in the individuals record with regard to prayer in which there is no humility and focus of mine, even
though it may be valid and workable, the reward for it will be commensurate with the person's level of focus and understanding of what he says. And there are Hadith to that regard that you only get from your prayer that which you concentrate in and focus in that is mentioned in a number of generations. And that is what the Prophet said instead, a person who will pray and they will leave with only half their prayer, or a quarter of their prayer or a third of their prayer and a person will leave none of their prayer they prayed. But because they didn't focus in the Salah, their mind was elsewhere. They didn't concentrate, didn't really remember anything of the sutra. You ask them
what did the Imam recite? They don't know. What did you recite? I don't know. They don't even know because their mind was wandering elsewhere. And look at how Allah azza wa jal when he describes the believers, and these are the complete is the most perfect of believers. He says there are those who in their Salah have kosher
and who sure is a level that is above the level of making sure that you've completed the conditions completed obligations completed the pillars because someone who hasn't even done that, as we said, hasn't even prayed. So these are people who are doing all of the actions of Salah correctly, know the rulings of Salah praying correctly making sure the conditions are fulfilled. They're going a step above and that is why Allah azza wa jal is praising them, because their Salah isn't just restricted now to the actions and the words just the movements. No, it is a Surah in which their heart is connected to Allah subhanho wa taala, who turned away from all that is vain, which is words
in which there is nothing good and no benefit. They turn away from it out of dislike for it, and so as to protect them protect themselves and rise above it. If they pass by people engage in idle talk, they pass by by with dignity as they turn away from all that is vain.
It is even more apt that they should turn away from that which is prohibited. If a person can rein in his tongue and keep it under control, speaking only of that, which is good, then he will be, he will be in control of all his affairs as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, to my I've been Jebel Radi Allahu Anhu may Allah be pleased with him. When he gave his him advice, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Shall not tell you of the basis of all that. I said, Yes, O Messenger of Allah. He took hold of his tongue, and said restrain this sound Hadith recorded by Imagine, one of the praiseworthy characteristics of the believers is that they restrain their tongues and refrain
from vain talk and saying that which is prohibited. And so again in this when they turn away from vain speech, vain speech includes everything includes that which is haram includes that which is disliked and includes that which is just a waste of time. It's halal, it's mobile, but doesn't benefit you. The believers are those who stay away from one of that which is rain speech, rain speeches, anything which makes you heedless of Allah subhanaw taala takes you away from Allah azza wa jal. And so the believers to the best of their ability, if it's a place or a setting, or, or, or a gathering in which there isn't any remembrance of Allah azza wa jal, they don't like those
gatherings. And that's why it's always been the practice of the scholars from the times of the companions, until even our time today, that the scholars if they go into a gathering, even if they just mentioned a verse of the Quran, or the Hadith, what a benefit, they like to do so, so that that gathering isn't just one of vain speech or just one of wasting time. Even if someone just for one minute one, one minute, two minutes just mentions a verse and a benefit, a hadith and a benefit, something they read that is beneficial, and is that golden then is something which is beneficial. Allah's name is mentioned, the Prophet SAW Selim his name is mentioned some good is mentioned. That
is what Allah azza wa jal mentions in the Quran that there is no good and the vast majority of the gatherings except those who come and charity or some other type of God or reconciliation between people. So at the very least, there should be some type of liquor of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada in that way, are active in giving the care that is given on their wealth, on the wealth of all types, this purifying themselves by giving up bad attitudes and bad deeds, so that so they do well in worshipping the creator and in focusing humbly in their prayer. And they do good to his creation by giving succor, and who restrain their carnal desires, and refrain from Zina unlawful sexual
relationships. Part of restoring the carnal desires is avoiding anything that leads to that which is unlawful, such as looking, touching and so on. So they restrain the carnal desires and refrain from illicit relationships with anyone except their wives, or any slave women, they may own. For them, they are free of blame, if they have intimate relationship relations with them, because Allah subhanaw taala has permitted that. But whoever seeks anything beyond that, that is beyond the wife or the female slave, such are the transgressors, who have gone beyond what Allah has permitted to that which has been which he has permitted, and have the audacity to transgress the limits set by
Allah. The general meaning of this first indicates the marriage temporary marriage is prohibited. And the woman in such a marriage is not a wife, in a true sense with the intention of permanent marriage, nor is she a slave daleel Marriage is prohibited for the same reason. The marriage we mentioned in our lessons of faith is when a person marries a woman with intention of divorcing her so that she can go back to her first husband because she's divorced three times, he can no longer marry or again, in order for him to be able to marry her, she must marry another man consummated the marriage and then be divorced in order to be able to go back to her first husband. And so people do
this now where they make this agreement that you will marry this woman only so that you can consummate and divorces that I can marry her again. And that is something which the Prophet Salam class, the class, the one who is part of this, and the one who does both of the parties of the process, just as is in the Hadith in the Muslim or the or the Allah when the words or any slave woman they may own indicate that in order for it to be permissible to have intimate relations with the slave woman is stipulated that one should own her entirely. If a man has a part in part, share and ownership of a slave woman, it is not permissible to him to have it's not permissible to have
intimate relations with her because he does not fully own her. Rather, she belongs to Him and to someone else. Just as it is not permissible for two husbands to share a free woman. It is not permissible for two masters to share a slave woman, those who are faithful to their trust and pledges. That is they are faithful to them, knowing the terms there of adhering to them. And they are keen to fulfill the conditions and implement what they promised. This is general in meaning and applies to all trusts that have to do with the rights of Allah and those that have to do with the rights of people. Allah Subhana Allah says, very we offer the trust to the heavens, the earth and
the mountains. They refuse to undertake it. And, and we're afraid of it. But men are
To kill everything that Allah has enjoined upon his slave is a trust, and the slave must adhere adhere to it by complying with it fully. This also includes things that are entrusted to people such as property, or what secrets, secrets and so on, the individual must pay attention to both and must fulfill both types of trust, trust. Verily, Allah commands you to render back trust to those to whom they are due.
The same applies to pledges including pledges between people and their Lord, and pledges that people make amongst themselves, they must be faithful to them and fulfill them. And it is forbidden to be heedless and negligent, negligent with regard to them, who are and who are diligent in their prayers. That is they persist in offering them on time in the prescribed manner, fulfilling their conditions and doing all the essential parts thereof. Allah praises them for their humble focus and diligence in prayer, because they cannot be in good shape, unless they do both. Whoever persists in praying without humbling him, humbling themselves, or humbles himself without being diligent in
prayer is falling short. One of the differences between this verse and the previous one, the one that speaks about for sure, and this one, which tells you to preserve the prayers, is the first one was mentioned in the singular form Salah team, and this one in the plural forms on our team. And that's because in every single solid you should have Sure, every solid you should have shown so it's like a single surah in the sense that every one of them that you perform as the Companions is to say, every prayer you offer should be like this, your final prayer upon Earth. This is your farewell prayer. And then when it comes to this verse, the plural is used, because the different rulings for
different prayers are different. The timing for each one is different, the number of records is different. And so those change from prayer to prayer. So the Muslim is the one who is diligent in both ways, he fulfills the rulings of the prayers in terms of the commands of Allah azza wa jal, and he also fulfills the prayer in terms of the control and concentration that we should have such that is those who are described in these terms will be the heirs who inherit paradise. The word translated here as paradise for those who refer to the highest part of paradise, the middle and best of it, because they attain the best of praiseworthy attributes. Or it may be that what is meant is
all a paradise, so that this includes all the believers are varying levels, each accordance each according to his situation, they will abide therein forever, and will never leave it, nor will they want to remove it to move from it, because it contains the most perfect, best and most delights, without anything to spoil their joy or undermine their happiness. And it's mentioned a number of a hadith that the prophets of Allah while he was salam encouraged people to make dua for a free dose. And that's because this religion is religion of highest aspiration wants everyone to aspire to the highest level of gender, even though the vast majority of people may not necessarily fall into all
three of those because that's the highest level of gender for the poor people have the most complete test of faith, but the only thing that stops me and you from getting there is our own shortcomings, so open for everyone. Everyone has the ability to climb up to the rank and that status and to achieve it, but depending on the amount of time and effort they put in, in attaining that pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and that we would but the shooting are wants you to aspire to that level. And that is why the Prophet Salim is to say if you ask Allah for Jana asking for those because it's the highest agenda and the middle of Jannah and it is the best part of Jana and above is the Throne
of Allah and from it to all of the rivers of Jana come. And so the prophet is gonna make that a general thing everyone should aspire to it. And if you aspire to that level, then inshallah even if you don't reach that you will reach below it, but it's still in Jannah as opposed to those who only aspire to be at the lowest level or do the bare minimum, because if you missed that bare minimum, as we know there is nothing below it except the fire of hell and Allah azza wa jal save us from

the Matthew toolbar I flew and then on the day for
direction you will surely be raised up. In this passage passage Allah mentioned the stages through which the human being passes from the beginning of his creation until his ultimate destiny. He mentioned the initial creation of the father of humankind, Adam Ali Salam, and tells us that He created him from the finest extract of clay. That is the clay was extracted and taken from all over the earth. Hence, Adam descendents vary according to what type of land they were collected from. Therefore, some of them are good, some are bad, and some are somewhere in between. Some are easygoing, some are harsh, and some are somewhere in between. And it's mentioned in the Hadith and
the Sunnah, that Allah azza wa jal, the Prophet has said in Allah halacha Adam incompetent Allah, that Allah azza wa jal created Adam, how do you salam from the different cells of the earth that he gathered together, and the word sunnah in Arabic language mean Solana is that it is to merge different things together, to mix them together and to extract out of them. That is the meaning of the word salah. And that also goes in accordance to the Hadith that we just mentioned. Then we placed him that is the human being as a drop of semen proceeding from between and between the backbone and the ribs, which then settles in a safe repository, namely, the uterus where it is
protected from harm. Then we made the drop of semen that had settled in the uterus. Before that into cleaning cloth, there is red blood 40 days after the drop of semen was placed in the safe repository. Then we made the cleaning cloth after 40 days into a lump of flesh, there is a small piece of flesh, the size of not full of food. Then we made the lump of flesh, which was soft in developed into bones, which were hard and close the bones with flesh, that is we made the fresh like a cover for the bones, as we made the bones a framework for the flesh, that is in the third 4040 day period. And then we brought it forth as another creation into which the thoughts the soul is
breathe. So it goes from being inanimate to being enemy living,
to being an enemy, living thing, living being so blessed via Allah, that is exalted and glorified, be the one who does abundant good, the best of creators who created all things well and initiated the creation of men from clay. Then he made his offspring from the extract of an insignificant fluid, then he fashioned him and breathed into him, the soul which he created, which he created for him. He gave you hearing sight and intellect, little, it is that you give thanks, he has created all things will end man is one of the best of his creations. Indeed, He is the Best of all, as Allah Subhana Allah says, very recreate a man in the best of conditions.
And the elite of humankind are the best and most perfect of creatures. Then after that, after being created, and after your souls have been breathed into you, you will surely die in one of your stages of your journey.
And then on the day of resurrection resurrection, you will be surely we will surely be raised up then you will be required for your deeds both good and bad.

Seven Heavens there is seven heavens one above the other dwelling the stars, the sun and the moon.
In and he has placed there in that which serves people's interest. And we have never been negligent towards our creation, just as our creation and compasses or creative or creative beings or knowledge also encompasses all that we have created. So we do not neglect, we do not neglect any creative being, or forget or forget it, we do not create anything and then forsake it, we do not neglect the heaven so that it falls upon the earth. And we do not forget the tiniest creature in the depths of the sea or the remotest wild wilderness. There is no creature, but we send is provisioned to this verse. Well, the author Hamlet Allah says, and we have never been negligent water creation, when the

These are the streams that you will find in the early works of difficile. And one of one of the things that I said about this, there's zero Saudi or Hema laterra Is that he often takes those statements of the scholars, the scholars have the setup, and then he puts them together in a stiff seal. But he just doesn't mention that this is the statement of setting it or Mujahid or Patel that whatever. He doesn't mention their names, but he's essentially taken the the general meaning that they all agreed upon. And that's what he used as his
difficile. But often, if you were to go back to those earlier works with the seal, like a poverty and you're gonna be hurting, and Ultrasurf and others in Romania, you will find these things, each one of them mentioned by one of the Imams of the self. And so this is why this structure is a very nice to see, often he's mentioned to you, and you don't really realize this is what he's doing. But Inshallah, when you go back to some of those other extra tips, you will see that he's extrapolated from them, and seen the meanings that they all agree upon. And that's what he placed in is, there is no creature that lives on the earth, but its sustenance is guaranteed by Allah, He knows his
dwelling place and its resting place. Allah subhanho wa Taala often mentioned together his act of creation, and his knowledge, as in the verses in which he says he could, how could He who created not know his own creation, when He alone is the knower of subtleties. He is the Creator of all that all knowing that is because the creation of all created things is the strongest rational evidence for the knowledge and wisdom of the Creation creator, we send down water from the sky and do measure as provision for you and your livestock, as much as will suffice you, he does not give less. So that is not enough for the earth entries for that would not serve the purpose. And he does not make it
excessive, so that it could destroy people's houses, and plants and trees, and trees and trees will not be able to survive. Rather he sends it down when it is needed, then he diverts it when it could cause harm, if it is persist if it persisted, and we cause it to remain on the earth. That is we send it down to the earth, then it settles there. And by the power of the one who sent me down, all kinds of plants are brought forth, he also causes it to settle and be stored in the ground readily available, it does not go so deep that no one could reach it. And barely we are able to take it away, either by not sending it down in the first place or, or by sending it down then letting it
disappear into the ground so that no one so that not one could reach it, or by causing it not to achieve the purpose intended by This is Allah's warning to slaves, and that they should show gratitude to him for his blessings. And that they should think if they were to lose these blessings, what harm would result from that? This is like the verse in which Allah subhanho Medina says, say, What do you think? If your water were to disappear under the ground, then who could bring you accessible water and that is because all of these blessings of Allah subhanaw taala at the same time can be punishments of Allah azza wa jal as well. So the water is a blessing of Allah subhanaw taala
from his greatest blessings, but that same water can cause flooding, and can cause so much destruction and cause so much harm. So same blessings water, this is water, that is water, but Allah subhanaw taala can send it down in both ways fire, which is a blessing that people need that use for warmth for cooking for so many other benefits. But that same fire can become destruction and punishment for people, the wind, the breeze that is cold, that is good, help so many things and it's so pleasant to have, but that same wind can become ferociously a torrent and it can be a typhoon or a hurricane and it can destroy everything in its path. So Allah azza wa jal says that these are
blessings of Allah subhanaw taala not only because in and of themselves, their blessings but the way that Allah azza wa jal sends them upon you for those same blessings. Allah azza wa jal if we decrease can become means of destruction. And by means of this water, we bring forth for you gardens of deep palms and vines, Allah subhanho wa Taala singles out these two plants for mention,
even though other kinds of plants also grow by means of it because of their virtue and benefits that makes them superior to other plants that benefits and virtues because dates as we know what the staple of the Arabs was the staple food that the Arabs had so every single day, that's what the eating and grapes was considered to be something which was extremely valuable. Grapes is something which even previously when people used to use things to make the alcohol and so on, used to be from barley and wheat and dates, not
Many people had access to grapes because grapes were considered to be an expensive fruit so Allah azza wa jal often uses this to like also, for example, in Surah GAfE, the man with the two gardens Allah resident says that he gave him the palm trees and vines, to show that this is someone who had not only wealth that was neat in need by many people, so that he sang to everyone, but he has also something which is extremely valuable in sending to the wealthy as well. And that is a sign of the blessings that Allah azza wa jal gave to him. So, likewise, Allah azza wa jal is saying that allows you to grow from a date it allows you to grow from it, vines for your grapes. And he mentioned
others in general terms in which that is, in those gardens, you may you have many foods and from them you eat such as fixed SITRANS, pomegranates, apples and so on. And we bring forth a tree, the olive which goes on Mount Sinai, this refers to the olive tree is singled out for mentioned because the place where it grows is in greater Syria, and because of its benefits, some of which he mentioned here producing oil and condiment for all to eat. That is it produces oil which is used for lamps and as a condiment that is eaten and it has other benefits. Also, hook the olive oil as we know is something which the Arabs use to use on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used and
when we studied the book of a shadow, Norma Timothy, remember Timothy mentioned that in relation to the prophet of Salem as one of the dam one of the things that he would use to eat his bread with was olive oil.

That is He has made them like ships for you on land on which you and your goods are carried to lands that you could not otherwise reach without great hardship. And he has also made for you ships which carry you and your goods with a few or many across the sea. The one who bestowed these blessings and favors of all kinds, and has been
very generous towards you is the one who deserves our gratitude and praise and deserves that you should strive hard to worship Him and not use his blessings to disobey him Allah azza wa jal bestowed upon us all of these blessings, so at the very least he deserves a worship subhanaw taala and now Allah azza wa jal mentioned through the story of Noah, Harry salmon, some of the prophets how those people didn't appreciate those blessings of Allah, how they didn't see those blessings of Allah as a sign to worship Allah azza wa jal alone, but rather the disbelieved.

in 2018 but the chieftains of his people who disbelieved said, this one is no more than a man like yourselves who wants to make himself superior to you. If Allah had was a world, he could have sent down angels as messengers. We have never heard of such a thing from our forefathers. In Hua Illa Raju along the Heejun

gonna move it early in. Surely in that there are signs for verily, we always put men to death to the test. Here Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah tells us of the message of his of the slave and messenger know how they set him who was the first Messenger whom He sent to the people of this earth. He sent him to his people who used to worship idols and he instructed them to worship Allah and I'm saying, oh my people worship Allah that is devote your worship to Him alone, because worship is not valid, unless it sincerely devoted to him alone. You have no God, but he this is a declaration of the inevitability of the invalid invalidity and well invalidity of the divinity of anything other than
Allah, and is an affirmation of the Divinity of Allah subhanho wa taala, for he alone is the Creator and Provider who is perfect in all ways, or others are the opposite of that, Will you not then fear Him and give up what you are doing of worshipping idols and, and and statues that were made in the image in the image of righteous people, and they worship them alongside Allah. He continued doing that, calling them in private, and in public night and for 1000 Less 50 years. But, but they only increased in stubbornness and aversion. But the chieftains of his people who disbelieved that is the noble and lead the noble, the novice, nobles and the nobles leaders said, by way of objecting to
their Prophet, know Ali Salam, and wanting others against following him and Allah azza wa jal offering the stories of these previous nations when he speaks about the people who rejected the prophets, he often refers to them as mother. And even in the story of Musa and Islam and Allah azza wa jal refers to Pharaoh. He also speaks about his mother, the mother, or the noble, the nobility, and Allah azza wa jal stresses them and focuses on them because they will often the people who are the most ardent opponents of the messengers and prophets of Allah, and he was salatu salam. And even in the case of Pharaoh when there's one figurehead, or in the case of Qureshi where you have someone
like Abu JAL, or Abu Lahab, were the figureheads. You have the rest of the mela, the rest of the nobility in the chieftains who are essentially urging them on and supporting them and saying that we're with you. And those people are usually the ones that everyone else will then follow the chieftains the nobility, if they take a stand, many of the lay in general people will follow them and they will follow their example and so Allah azza wa jal often focuses on them, as he does in the study of know how to use this one is no more than a man like yourself, who wants to make himself superior to you, that is, he is only a human being like you. His aim in claiming profit is to prove
superiority over you, so that he will be followed otherwise, what makes him superior to you when he is just like you this? This objection continued to be raised among those who reject the messengers, meaning it continued to be used as an excuse by all of the nations that the prophets claiming to one of their main objections to these prophets is what makes you better than us. Why did Allah choose you over us as Allah has written, mentioned in the Quran that they said concerning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam low levels in the Quran? Allah Raju the mineral Korea teeny alim, surely if Allah was going to reveal this Quran
and you would have chosen one of the leaders of the two major cities meaning either from the leaders of Mahkota if Allah would have gotten if somebody Abu jihad or Abu Lahab, one of these people deadly white and Allah choose them. This person only wants to have power over you. That's what he's claiming to be a prophet, as was mentioned by Abuja himself, that he used to say that we might claim the kind of the prophets of Allah where instead of always being in competition, but now he claims that he's a prophet. So how can we compete with that can't compete with the Prophet of Allah, you can compete in terms of money and in terms of position and influence, but someone says, I'm the
Messenger of Allah, you can't compete with that. And so this was one of the major themes that they had as a larger dimensions here, but the people have no Hadees. But Allah gave us sufficient sufficient response on the lips of His messengers, as in the passage in which he says, they said, You are about human beings like ourselves.
You want to turn us away from that which are far from our forefathers used to worship, then bring us some tree of proof. Their messengers said to them, indeed we are, but humans being like, we are but human beings like yourself, but Allah bestows His favor upon whomever he was, obviously, if they stated that this was the blessing in favor of Allah, and they had no right to put restrictions on Allah or object or object to him for bestowing his favorite on them. In this case, the people of Noah said, if Allah had so willed, He could have sent down angels as messengers. They use the concept of Divine Will to raise objections on a false basis, although Allah could have sent down
angels as messengers, if he had so willed, He is most wise, most merciful, and his wisdom and mercy dictate that the messenger should be human, because humans cannot be directly addressed by angels. And an angel could only have appeared to them in the form of a human of a man, in which case they would they would have they would have become confused and raised the same objections again, would have come only in the form of a man the angels
why only in the form of a man welcome the angels come in the original form?
Yeah, why don't
the injured in its original form is vast,
massive as the as the profit center said there is so GB gallese Suleiman his original form said that he covered the whole horizon. That's the range of minutes original form. And so the angel is original form is a vast creation of Allah azza wa jal, how you're going to follow that creation, how you're going to, like take that as a modern example. You can't even see Him in His entirety because of how, how vast the creation of Allah azza wa jal is, and so that is why Allah Subhana Allah says in surah an arm that even if you were to send down angels, you would have taken them in the form of men. And that is why the vast majority of the occasions that Jubilee rallies from came to the
Prophet tsunami came in the form of a man came in the form of Sharia, about the Allahu Allah and one of the companions look like him, took his form. And that's the majority of the times that he came to the Prophet said, and he said, I only saw Jabril, a handful of times in His original form 23 years of prophethood, only a handful of times, because it's too fast, too big a creation of Allah subhanaw taala and that is why even in the previous nations in those a hadith, but Allah azza wa jal will send angels to people, they will always come in human forms. The story of Maria Maria set up when she was given like paintings of Isa How did the angels appear? As men, she says to him, I seek
refuge in Allah from you because she didn't recognize them except as men. And so that is how Allah azza wa jal sends them. So this claim that they used to say why doesn't Allah said that was angels Angel doesn't make sense from that point of view, either, let alone the other issues that we have mentioned previously, I have never heard of such a thing, namely the sending of a messenger from our forefathers, what proof is there in the fact that they never heard of the sending of a messenger to their forefathers, for they do not have knowledge of what happened in the past. So they should not make that ignorance, the basis of their argument. Even if we assume that no messenger was sent to
their forefathers, either their forefathers were guided. So there was no need for a messenger at that time, or they were not guided. So Let them praise the Lord, and give thanks to him for singling them out for blessing that they did not. That did not come to their forefathers and they weren't never aware of it. They should not let the fact that a blessing did not reach the blessing did not reach them, reach others to be because of ingratitude in gratitude for a favor bestowed upon them. And even though is rejected from them, because the first of all was crucial. Adam Armstrong was a prophet of Allah subhanaw taala. So there will always prophets and messages from the beginning of
creation, just that they weren't aware of them, or they had as the author is saying that time had passed by and so they weren't aware of them or they were upon guidance. And so Allah Azza didn't need to keep sending to them. Prophets and Messengers is no more than a man in whom there is madness, so bear with him and wait for a while until death comes to him. The arguments they gave to justify the rejection of the Prophet are indicative of their extreme ingratitude and stubbornness and demonstrate that they were extremely ignorant and
guided, these species arguments do not justify their rejection anyway, as we have mentioned, rather, they were self conscious, contradictory and flimsy in and of themselves by saying this one is more than is no more than a man like yourselves, who wants to make himself superior to you. They affirm that he was a man of rational thinking, who was scheming against them in order to put himself above them and become the leader. And moreover, there was a need to one against him, so that no one would be deceived by him.
How could that be? How could that be in harmony with the other argument against him? When they said he is no more than a man in whom there is madness? Can this be anything other than the species argument of one who is misguided and confused? All he is trying to do is find any justification for his aversion to the truth without knowing what he is talking about. But Allah insist on exposing and disgracing those who oppose Him and His messengers, when not realize that His call was only increasing them in a version. He said, My Lord helped me for they rejected they have rejected me. He asked for his is Lord. He asked him he asked his Lord for help against them of anger for the sake of
for the sake of Allah, as they neglected his command and rejected his message. When When did he do this? Know how to use Saddam. When did he make this dua? Allah azza wa jal, this is enough now destroy these people. As we know from other verses in the Quran after 950 years, 150 years of calling them so it wasn't just something after a few months or a few years, he just became fed up or annoying man and rule 50 as he tries, then he realized that these people will never believe these people are so obstinate in their rejection they will never believe and that is what has always been in the Quran refers to no Hadees Salam, as a prophet, I was patient and a prophet of gratitude. I am
going to 50 years to be patient with a group of people can you imagine most of us don't patient for like a few days with with people. On one occasion, something happens and that's enough is enough for you to lose your temper. 950 years the same people day and night openly in secret in Publix individually, calling them again again again. And they're just responding the same way. And then he eventually makes a strike on large origin as they neglected his command and rejected his message. Messenger. No, I said, My Lord, do not leave on Earth, a single living soul from among the disbelievers. For if you leave them they will mislead your slaves and we'll be getting none but we
could disbelievers. And Allah subhanaw taala says, Indeed, no called upon us and how excellent was our response. So inspired him when he when we answered him, telling him of a means to save himself before the punishment came, build the ark, that is the ship under our supervision and in accordance with our inspiration that is in accordance with our instructions to you, and with our help, for you are under our care and supervision, supervision, as we see you and hear you and this is from the amazing characteristic of the prophets of Allah, whatever command Allah azza wa jal gives to them. They do it immediately they submit, no hurry Islam is told in the middle of desert in the middle of
the land, build him up, and he builds it doesn't question. Don't say why, oh, Allah doesn't make any sense. But why surely I should go next to the seed and build it. They know. Allah commands him and he does it. Just as Ibrahim Ali slammin has told him your family in the bedroom, but he does it. This is the way of the prophets of Allah. When Allah's command comes, they submit,
then when our command comes to send the flood with which they were to be punished, and water gushing out the earth, that is when springs burst forth from the earth, let onboard appear from every species that is taken on board the ark, a male and female of every animal, so as to maintain the offspring of all animals that were created on Earth by divine wisdom. And as we mentioned before, in the pursuit of Surah Hood, when the water crushed up from the earth Farah to nor a to nor in Arabic language, some of the scholars said that refers to the earth, the water starting to emerge from the earth other said that it is the oven, the clay oven that people have on the ground that they make
their food in, in the olden days instead of these clay ovens built into the earth. And when the water started to emerge from that it was said that it was a sign for no hurry, Sam, Now gather the people and these animals onto the Ark and leave. And so that was the sign that he was waiting for. And that is what it says here, that when he saw the sign, then he starts to gather them. So this was the sign for him that now you need to prepare to embark upon the Ark and your family. That is take them on board to accept those against except those against whom the sentence has already been passed, such as his son, and do not plead with me concerning those who did wrong. That is, do not
pray to Me to save them, for it has already been willed and decreed that they will be drowned. Once you and those who are with you are settled on board the ark that is when you have embarked and has sailed with you on the waves. Then praise Allah for saving you and keeping you safe. Say Praise be to Allah who has saved us from the people who are given to wrongdoing. Allah taught no
and those who were with him to say these words and thanksgiving to him, praising him for saving them from the evildoers, and from following their path and sharing their punishment. And this is from the etiquettes of the believer that when you see others going through calamity and hardship, you think Allah azza wa jal received you from it, that is from the etiquettes of the believer, not that you that you lord over them or that you enjoy the misfortune or that you thank Allah, that Allah saved you from the same trial and punishment that could have been you in that situation, that could have been you going through that difficulty that Allah has just saved you from it, and maybe that person
is going through it is going through it with patience, Allah will reward them, Allah will raise the station, Allah will expect that since the me I knew if we were to go through that we don't know how we would cope, maybe we would go through that and it would be something which would cause us to lose our iman May Allah save us from the causes to become weakened our Eman or to be impatient with Allah's decree. So when Allah azza wa jal gives you something, or gives to someone else a calamity. Thank Allah Azza that he saved you from it. And so the believer doesn't go out looking for those tests and punishments and calamities if they come to them. Then they're patient, but they don't go
looking out and seeking them because they don't know how they're going to fare in that situation. And say, My Lord caused me to land blessing learning place, for You are the Best of those who bring to land. That is, there is nothing there's another there is another blessing that is yet to come. So pray to Allah for it, namely, that Allah should make it easy for you to land our blessing learning place, and Allah and his supplication, as he tells us somewhat, as he tells us elsewhere, and the decree was fulfilled, the art came to rest on a god. And it was set away with the wicked people. It was said, Oh, no, this embark was safety granted by us and with blessings upon you and some of the
communities who will spring from those who are with you. Surely in that, there is in this in this story, there are signs with which indicate that Allah alone is deserving worship, and that as messenger know who's truthful, and is people realize this is indicative of Allah's promise of Allah's mercy towards his slaves, as he carried them in the loins of the father of their father nor in the ark, when he charmed the people of the of the earth. The Ark is also one of the signs of Allah, He tells us elsewhere, rarely we have left it as a sign is there any who will pay heed? Hence and signs are mentioned in the pro because this refers to a number of signs and indications for
verily We always put men to the test.
