Hello there hola Sharika you don't fit in or should do another B and I will see you then I'm Mohammed Abdul Hora Surah Mustafa Amin Allahumma salli wa sallam robotic it early he will be a drummer in my band. So today is the 10th day of our reading on the commentary of this portion of the Book of difficile. That is quality Cyril Karim Rahman vtct, economic manaan morphemes denominator zero Assadi by the Imam and the Allah Masha hundra mandible Manasa Saudi who died in the 1376 of the Hijra Rahim Mahalo, Tara Brahma teen wasa and we are currently on the 19th Jos Surah two sharara verse number 208.
I would have been learning Amina Xiang along
Bismillah your Walkman you're watching a woman
like Naomi, Korea in
the womb. We never destroyed any Cedar City without first sending messengers to warn it. The crow American volley me in by way of reminder, for we never we are never unjust.
Why Matt Dennis Xana to be he che out clean it was not the devil's who bought the Quran Damn. Well my I'm Marina whom Wehmeyer stealthing goon is not appropriate for them to do that. Nor is it within the capability in whom nine is semi ulama are Zulu.
Indeed, they are excluded from hearing the Quran. Here Allah subhanaw taala tells us of perfect justice in tells us of perfect justice in destroying the disbelievers and that he never sent destruction and punishment upon any city until after he had left them with no excuse. And he had sent one is bringing clear signs and calling them to write guidance, warning them against against Doom and reminding them of the signs and revelation of Allah, and how he blessed them and how previous nations were destroyed and all these blessings were taken away from them. But as we've been saying from the beginning of the Tafseer of Surah sharara. Allah subhanaw taala has sent to send
told us about the stories of these previous nations and how each one of them Allah azza wa jal favored with certain blessings and certain skills and abilities that Allah azza wa jal endowed them with and how those people when they turned away from Allah subhanaw taala those special skills that Allah gave to them or those blessings that Allah gave to them, didn't benefit them in the sight of Allah azza wa jal without Eman and how Allah azza wa jal values those people who follow his path and his religion and his revelation, Allah subhanaw taala here says that all of those people that were destroyed were only destroyed after the messengers came to them and revelation was sent to them, and
the proof was established against them, by way of reminder to them, and so as to establish proof against them. But we never we are never unjust. We do not destroy cities before warning them or punish them when they are unaware of the warning. This is like the verses in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says, nor do we punish until We have sent a messenger to give warning and messengers sent as bearers of glad tidings and as Warner's so that humankind would have no excuse before Allah after the coming of the messengers, having highlighted the perfect and majestic nature of the Quran, and declaring it to be above all shortcomings. And having told us that he protected it at the time of
its revelation and after its revelation from the devils among the jinn and humankind. Allah subhanho wa Taala says here, it was not the devils who brought down the Quran, who brought this Quran down is not appropriate, that is befitting for them to do that. Nor is it with is it within their capability to do so. So Allah azza wa jal says that is not something which the devil is brought down because that was one of the claims that apologists to make about the Quran they used to say, that is the work of Devil's the devil is come to this man meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they are the ones who give him this revelation. And so Allah azza wa jal says here that it wasn't
from the devils nor was it befitting that the devil should have the capability and the ability to do such a thing, or someone can ask those children stop running around please, I will be grateful.
Indeed, they are excluded from hearing it the Quran, they were kept away from it, and the shooting stars were prepared for them to protect it. And it was brought down by Jibreel, the strongest of the angels who no devil can approach or come anywhere near his territory. This is like the verse in which Allah says, rarely is We Who have sent down the reminder of the Quran. Rarely is we who preserve it.
For Allah Duang ma la Hina hot off at a goon I mean, I didn't want the baby. Do not call upon any other gods alongside Allah lets you be among those who will be punished while
she already taken a call being an O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warn your nearest kinfolk. Well, Phil Jana, how can you manage Devoxx I mean, meaning and lower your wing in humility and gentleness to the believers who follow you for in house Home Care
Then if they're your kinfolk disobey you say I am not accountable for what you do. He Allah subhana wa Tada forbids His Messenger SallAllahu sallam, first of all and his ummah by implication, as a follow him to call upon anyone other than Allah, of all creative beings for that increased eternal punishment, because is ascribing partners to to him. Whoever ascribed partners to Allah then Allah has been Allah has been a paradise for him, and the fire will be his abode. Prohibition. Everything is a command to do its opposite. So the prohibition of ascribing partners to a partner to Allah is a command to devote worship to Allah alone, without any partner or associate out of love, fear, hope
and humility, turning towards him at all times, having enjoyed enjoying him, the prophet Salah Salem to do that, by means of which he will attain perfection for himself. Allah Now instructs him to guide others to the path that leads to perfection. And O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, one in years, kinfolk, who are the closest of people to you, and are the most deserving of your kind kindness in both spiritual and worldly terms. So the prophets of Allah where it was salam was commanded to call the people that are closest to him,
or that he people that are closest to him and the people that he is closest to and that is kinsfolk. And that is where the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam as we know he first began with the closest people to him from his relatives, he called his wife, he called his uncle, he called his cousins he called the people that were closest to him. And then the general tribes have courage. And there is an important principle in this because Otto will tell us now, that that doesn't mean that you don't call all of the people. But it means that it is from the etiquettes of the prophets that they always began with those people that are closest to them. And one of the benefits that we get from that is
that the reason why they will instruct you to do so is because the people that are closest to you have a greater right upon you than others were not so close to you. Doesn't Allah Atsuta tell us in the Quran, save yourselves and your families from the fire, because they have a greater right on you, your parents, your spouses, your children, they are the people that you should be focusing on more than others. And so therefore, if those people are receptive to your dharma, to call them, to invite them to guide them to teach them is something which is which is good.
This does not cancel out the command to warn our people because if a person is instructed to be kind to, to our people, then is said to him, be kind to your relatives. This is emphasizing the importance of kindness to relatives, and highlighting the fact that they have a particular right to that the prophesy Salam said the prophesy Selim complied with with this divine command. And he called the clans of Quraysh, addressing them in different ways, reminding them and Atman, admonishing them, he left no advice or guidance that he was able to offer. But he said, but he said, some of them were guided and some turned away, and lawyer weighing in humidity and your dentist to
the to the believers who follow you by treating them kindly, speaking gentle words to them being friendly and showing love, a good attitude and perfect kindness towards them. And he indeed, and he indeed that and he indeed did that. Allah subhanaw taala says is by the mercy of Allah that you deal they deal gently with them. If you had been harsh or hard hearted, they would have dispersed from around you. So pardon them and ask for Allah's forgiveness for them and consult them in matters of importance. This attitude of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this attitude on the part of the Prophet SAW Selim was the most perfect attitude by means of which great interests may be served
and great harm may be warded off, as anyone can see. So from the greatest commands that Allah azza wa jal gave to His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was this command, that towards the believers, he should be gentle, that he should be merciful towards them. Because all of them, each one of those believers came from a different background had their different issues came with different challenges. And the prophets of Allah were and he was telling me showed mercy and kindness and gentleness to all of them. And so when they accepted Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was extremely gentle to them, and that gentleness, allow them and help them to become stronger in
Iman. And therefore it is from the most important attributes of a teacher, that they are gentle towards their students, people who genuinely want to learn and they come. And that's where this comes from the beginning of the time of the companions used to sacrifice their time and their comfort and other things for the students, because they know that these people want to learn the region of Allah azza wa jal, but also that they will take that message to others. So that's why the Scholars of this time is to dedicate themselves and there are stories if you look at the biographies of the scholars have, some of them would spend most of the day teaching their students someone would
come and travel to them, they would cancel everything canceled their family engagements, canceled their work, arrangements, everything, because this person has come to learn their religion, and they would spend time with them and give to them that time so that they can benefit from them. And some of our teachers mentioned that some of their teachers when they would go to them, they would travel to them, they would say to them leave for us five or six hours to sleep at night, and the rest of the time is those 1820 hours a day for you. Take it as you want and benefit from it. And so Allah azza wa jal is commanding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam to be gentle to his followers. So
is it befitting for the one who believes for one who believes in Allah and His Messenger SallAllahu sallam?
and claims to be following him to be a burden on the Muslims. Ill mannered harsh towards them hard hearted, rough and foul mouth. And if he sees any sin or bad manners on their part, he shows them resents them and hates them. There is no gentleness in such a person and no manners or etiquette. Manner many evils result from the way he deals with people, and many interests are blocked. Yet despite that, you find him looking down on those who possess attributes like those of the Noble Messenger SallAllahu sallam, he accuses them of hypocrisy and compromise, and he thinks of himself as perfect regarding himself as being of high status and environment, his deeds, does this result
from anything but ignorance and the deceit of the shaytaan who makes his attitude fair seeming to him? Hence, Allah says to the His Messenger, salallahu Alaihe Salam, then if you're if they're your kinfolk disobey you with regard to any matter, do not just own them, and do not stop dealing with them on the basis of humility and gentleness, rather, what you should what you should just disavow is their deeds, so and admonish them for that, and advise them and do your most prevent them, doing such deed deeds and urge them to repent. And therefore that is a general principle allows you to sing to the prophets of Allah where it was still him that if they disobey you, meaning these people
from your relatives, these people have arranged don't obey you, then preserve for them the rights that they have in terms of your lineage and your relationship to them, but don't follow them in terms of the Haram that they do and the disobedience of Allah azza wa jal, and that applies to every Muslim so you have someone in your family who's related to you, but they don't worship Allah azza wa jal either engaged in some type of haram or some type of sin, they still have rights upon you. So you fulfilled their rights to the best of your ability, so long as it doesn't compromise your religion. It's not going to harm you in terms of your Eman and what they do of evil or haram. You
stay away from that. That is in order to avoid giving the wrong impression to one who may misunderstand and think that the word the words and lower your wing and humility and justice to the believers implies approving of everything that they do, so long as they are believers. This notion is warded off by this verse And Allah knows best what what can I learn nothing is you're watching and put your trust in the almighty the most merciful and loving Karina Turku who sees you when you stand up to pray. what are called Lobo calf is GD, Luber, what are what are called lubac F is GD and seize your movements among those who prostrate along with you in the in the prayer in who was semi
or Lolly Valley he is the or hearing or knowing the greatest help to a person in knowing in doing the in doing what he is commanded to do is relying on his Lord and seeking his help to enable him to do what is enjoined. Hence, Allah subhanho wa Taala instructs us to put all your trust, to put our trust in Him and He says, and put your trust in the Almighty, the Most Merciful. Putting one's trust in Him, in him refers to the reliance of the heart on Allah subhanaw taala. To bring benefit in Word or form was trusting in Him and thinking positively of him, and believing that He will help you to attain what you seek for his almighty, Most Merciful By his his mind, he's able to bring good and
ward off evil from his slave. And by His mercy, he does that. Then he points out the importance of seeking divine help and bearing in mind how close Allah is and attaining the level of Sn as he says, who sees you when you stand up to pray and see your movements among those who prostrate along with you in the prayer. That is He sees you when you perform this great act of worship, namely the prayer at a time when you stand and move bowing and prostrating where he singled out for mentioned because of its virtue and honorable status because the one who bears in mind, who bears in mind as he's praying the closest of his Lord of focus with proper humidity and will perform the prayer properly
and completely and will do all of the deeds properly, because prayer will become a source of help for him in all his affairs. The law will do the same to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he doesn't need to worry about the hum of courage that Allah subhanaw taala will give him his divine aid and protection. And Allah azza wa jal then specifies a single act of worship when Allah azza wa jal looks upon him. And that is the position of Salah as he's standing and as he's making such that and we know that Allah azza wa jal is always looking and caring for and protecting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not just in Surah all of the time, but the Salah is mentioned is
specifically to show to its position and its honor, and that is that if a person the more that they are in difficulty and hardship, the further they should be or the more that they should be engaged in Salah in terms of no effing in terms of the night prayer in terms of worshiping Allah azza wa jal as often as they can. And that is why as we know from the general sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when something used to grieve him or something used to be an affair that used to weigh heavily upon him, he used to hurry to the prayer and he's to seek contentment and rest in it. And that is because you know that Allah azza wa jal will look upon you further and we agreed to
Kenaston outside of the sutra, and that is supported by the pseudonym because the Prophet told us on Allah and he was
And he said that if you start in the solid, but Robbie, when the Save faces is Lord meaning and salah, then his Lord faces him, meaning that Allah azza wa jal gives you more of that focus more of that reward more of that blessing that you want and Allah azza wa jal is ready to answer your door and the Hadith goes on to say, and his Lord does not turn away from Him until He turns away from him first. How do you turn away from Allah azza wa jal in surah.
Salam, when you make the dish slim on the right and the left you've turned away meaning you finish the salada you've turned away from Allah azza wa jal, and you're going to convince yourself in issues of the dunya that is when Allah azza wa jal then turns away from you. And so the general Hadith support this principle that Allah azza wa jal is mentioned in the Quran. And that is why amongst the setup, there were those who when in times of difficulty or hardship, and this is what they would do, they would busy themselves in Salah and in the worship of Allah subhana wa Tada. If a person there is a mind that Allah can see him in all circumstances, and hear all that he orders and
he knows what is in his heart of worries, resolve and intentions that will help him to attain the status of Sn
l ona B O comb her own a bit o Comala moment and as Lucia
Shall I tell you upon whom the devils descend? Then as Edwin, Cooley F, King fe, they descend upon every lie upon every evil liar?
You will go on a semi work Thoreau whom Kennedy moon, who listens eagerly to what the devil say, but most of them are liars
We had Debian homeowners, who are known as for poets, those who are misguided.
Those who are misguided follow them. And I'm thorough and feel equally worthy moon, do you not see that they wander aimlessly from one from one idol pursuit to another? Well, again, Kulu namah Allah if you don't, and what they say that which they do not do
me know Solly had the word, law HackerEarth era where that goes along, I guess yield?
the male LIMU was a lot more than letting
a yam collabing colleague who soon except those who believe do righteous deeds, remember a lot much and defend themselves after having been wronged. And those who do wrong will come to know to know what what fate awaits them.
This is a response to those who rejected the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam and said that devil came to him and those who said that he was appointed charter you about whom the devil descend, that is, shall I tell you the truth, the true fact concerning which there is no doubt or confusion about those upon whom the devil descend. In other words, this is a description of those people upon upon whom the devil descend, they descend upon every evil liar, that is one who speaks much falsehood and fabricate lies, evil, that is, in his deeds, he commits a lot of sin. This is the one upon whom the devil descend, for his character matches theirs and they are compatible, who listens equally to what
the devil say, that is, what they snatched from the from heaven, but most of them are lies, that is most of what they say to him, is lies, they may say one thing that is true, and add 100 lies to it.
So that the truth becomes fixed, mixed with falsehood, and what is true will vanish because it is so little, and because the one who receives it has no knowledge. This is a description of of the people upon whom the devil to send. And this is a description of what the devil is inspired them with. And that is what the Prophet told us that Allah who are Muslim in the Hadith, that the Shariati and they go to the heavens and they snatched from its news, and then they come and they give it to the fortune tellers in their suit sales. And those people what they do is they mix with that one truth 100 lives and that is how they package it. And that is why when the companion settle messenger of
Allah sometimes what they say comes true. He said that is the one truth they pick from that 100 lies, they told you 100 things, one thing comes true. And because that one thing is true, everyone believes them in everything, but the rest of it is all lies and it was all false.
But with regard to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his character is very different because he is truthful, honest, righteous and wise, the one in whom are combined sincerity of the heart, on his speech and deeds, they are free of anything unlawful. The revelation that comes down to him, it's from Allah, and is sent down guarded and protected, and it contains great truths concerning which there can be no doubt at all. So people of reason are, are he and those people equal? Could anyone confuse them except one who is ignorant and cannot distinguish matters or see the difference between between different things haven't declared him innocent of receiving anything from the devil devils.
Allah also declared him to be innocent of being a poet, as he says, As for poets, that is Cha Cha also tell you about the character and
usual description of the poet's for those who are misguided.
Those who are misguided away from the path of truth and who follow the path of misguidance and don't follow them. So they themselves have gone astray and you will find that they are followed by everyone who has gone astray and is corrupt. Do you not see that? Because of the error and extremists guidance, they wander aimlessly from one idol pursuit to another. Sometimes they praise people, and sometimes they impugn them. Sometimes they tell the truth, and sometimes they lie. Sometimes they compose love poetry, and sometimes they lampoon others. Sometimes they express joy and sometimes they express sorrow. They are not stable, and they switch moods easily. And that's
well known poetry is often people's emotions. And sometimes it's about subject matters which aren't befitting for the Muslim to speak about and sometimes there is embellishments lies exaggerations, and that is why generally it is not something which is approved of, for the prophets of Allah, that they're known for their poetry or they're known to be as poets, because often what people do in poetry is exaggerate and sometimes outright lie, or sometimes they will embellish the truth and so on. And those are attributes and characteristics that are worthy of the prophets of Allah azza wa jal, and we mentioned this when we did the reading of Shama. Illa telemovie Rahim Allah Tada.
Remember to me, he mentions a number of a hadith in which the Prophet SAW Selim is sometimes used to read poetry, and he would make mistakes in it just a verse a poetry probably would break up the vessel poetry, because he wasn't aware of the stanza and the way that it should be recited. That's something which Allah Azza didn't give to him. However, poetry at the symptoms Allah azza wa jal will mention in a forthcoming verse can also be used for good there's always abundance in this issue. There are people who spend their poetry praising Allah azza wa jal praising the prophets of Salem, or portraits of knowledge that teach people, their religion, Islam and so on different sizes
of the religion, those are praiseworthy types of poetry that Allah Azza did is speaking about the norm. And what is common amongst poets, especially in the time of the Arabs, because Arabs were known for these traits, and they still do today we have poetry of Joe Hillier, that speaks about many of these issues. And so that's why Allah azza wa jal focuses upon these people, but also because poetry was a propaganda machine of the Arabs, the time of the prophets of salaam the Arabs of Jaya Hillier Quraysh, how do they use to get their message across through poetry? That's what was common amongst them. So they would come and they would have poetry competitions and dunes, and they
would use by poetry that people memorize because people can memorize poetry easier than normal conversation, people will memorize things and they would spread across Arabia. That's how their points today have survived. Today, we have points that from the time before the prophets of Allah where it will send them and so that's how it survived. So it was also the propaganda machine. So they would use the poet's to attack Islam, and to attack the Muslims as well. And that they say, that which they do not do that is, this is how the posts are the words and deeds do not match. If you hear the poet composing gentle love poems, you will, you will say that he's lovesick, but his
heart is devote devoid of love.
If you hear him praising or condemning someone, you will say he's speaking the truth, but his line. Sometimes they boast of deeds that they never did, or boast about refraining from things from which they never refined, or they boast of generosity from which they are far removed, or have courage in which they, they, they suppress the boldest worries, when they are the most cowardly of people. This is how they are so look and see, does that there's what is mentioned above metacharacter of the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, the wise and righteous one who's followed by everyone who is wise and rightly guided, who adhered to right guidance and kept away from the path of doom,
whose deeds did not contradict one another, and whose words do not contradict contradict his deeds. He only enjoyed good, and he forbade evil. He never spoke of anything, where he told the truth, he never enjoyed anything, where he was the first to do it. He never forbade anything, but he was the first to refrain from it. Is this character matched by that of the poet's? Or do they even come close? Or is he different from them in all aspects, blessings and peace be of Allah be upon the most perfect messenger, salallahu alayhi salam forever and ever, he was not a magician or madmen, nothing fits him, but at a perfection and that is because poets can often speak about an issue and then they
don't do it. So they can speak about loving Allah and loving the prophet of Salam. And when you look at them to the furthest people away from religion, and we have examples of that throughout history, and so poems or poets don't necessarily see what they believe or what they what is in their hearts or what they're going to abide by themselves. And that characteristic, that general trait isn't becoming of the prophets of Allah where he was sending him. Having described the post in such terms, Allah made an exception for those among them who believed in Allah and His Messenger Salah Lord sent him did righteous deeds, remember that Allah much and defended themselves against their policies,
enemies enemies, after they wronged them, and that is why the prophets of Allah where it was sort of himself allowed from amongst the Companions, those who are prolific in poetry, to see poetry and to write poetry and to spread their poetry, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, concerning Hassan hypnotherapy through the long run, when the wind
to Mecca, the rent for the orbital cannot even to make up the Umbra after they be are they be at the turned away the after they come back and make Ramadan Hassan comes into the Haram, the area of the Haram and he's reciting poetry, praising Islam and pleasing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Armada said, oh Hassan, how dare you say poetry in front of the Messenger of Allah, in the Haram of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Armand would even be, for his words have more of an impact than the arrows if you were to shoot them, meaning your arrow towards the enemy has less of an impact in these words, because of the way that the Arabs honored poetry. And so the Prophet
was telling us to allow the poets to say that which was good and was beneficial and from amongst the points of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam there were three companions that were known for their poetry, the first of them is Hasani blue sabot, not the Allahu Akbar. And he's mentioned in a number of a hadith and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Jibreel the roof and kudos comes and helps Hassan so long as he defends Islam. So he's the first one. The second one is Abdullah murabaha. Probably Allah one the famous companion, he was also known for his poetry and the prophets of Allah, where it was selling would often repeat his verses of poetry after meaning. on
two different occasions, he would say, the poet the poem lines of Abdullah in Ottawa, and the third form amongst them was the companion caribou, romantic Radi Allahu Anhu. Having described the post in such terms, Allah made an exception for those among them, who believed in Allah and His Messenger SallAllahu Sallam did righteous deeds, remember the law such and defended themselves against their policies, their policies, enemies after they wronged them. In such cases, their poetry was counted among the righteous deeds and the effects of their faith, because it contains praise for the believers defense against the policies and disbelievers shoving in defense of the religion of Allah
propagating useful knowledge and encouraging our virtuous characteristics, hence, Allah. And Allah says, except those who believe, do righteous deeds, remember Allah much and defend themselves after having been wronged and those who do who do wrong will come to know what fate awaits them, when they move to the place of standing and reckoning, when there will be no minor or major deed but it will be listed and there will be no dues, but they will be paid in for Praise be to Allah,
the Lord of the Worlds that's the end of a commentary of Surah Shuara our praise and thanks for Allah and May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, his family and his companions abundantly until the day of judgment. And welcome to the 27th chapter of the Quran which is Surah to Numberland Surah to Naml is a murky Surah consisting of 93 verses Surah to normal. This is the name by which it is known in the vast majority of the books out there, Cyril Hadith, and so on. But it is also known as with another name, that you will find in some of the narrations of the setup, and from the names that the surah was known by Surah to Sulaiman, Ali,
salaam, surah. Solomon, and so if you ever see in the early works of Islam, scholars referring to Surah Suleyman, they're referring to Surah to Nemat. And this is reported as coming from the likes of Imam Malik Rahim Allah and even on bass but the Allahu Anhu maybe for him and some of the setups that they use to refer to this as sort of silly man and in some books, you will even find it being referred to as Surah tool
Surah Solomon Surah to Neman and Surah Solomon and both of them are similar because both are speaking about one in the same story. The Surah consists of a number of important topics from amongst those topics is the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala the greenness of Allah azza wa jal and from those topics is the knowledge of the intimate knowledge of Allah subhana wa Tada and his knowledge of everything that takes place in existence. And also the issue of etiquettes etiquette with Allah subhanaw taala and the way that a person should address the Lord
this means learning in wash man you're walking in the Name of Allah, the Most gracious the most merciful. Passing I'm passing, these are verses of the
Quran you Akita been, these are verses of the Quran and the Clear Book. We don't generally when you have these letters in the beginning of the Quran, in the coffee recitations like in the most half, it's always in the oven, I mean, and the Vinaya mean solid, and the Vinaya he has seen and the Vinaya with exception of these ones toss in
anything ending with raw and if lamb raw cauliflower meme raw, and the single letters like noon and sad. Every other one in the residential house is always
down, which roiling meaning guidance and glad tidings for the believers. I lead in a young team owners solder tune as they will

such are the ones who have a grievous punishment and in the Hereafter is they who will be the greatest losers?
Well in the Quran I mean lead on Hakeem in Eiling value on him Mohamed Salah Salem are receiving the Quran from one who's most wise and all knowing
he Allah subhanho wa Taala draws the attention of His slaves to the greatness of the Quran. These are verses of the Quran and the Creole book that is the most sublime and clear verses which give the clearest explanation that is indicative of the most sublime at aims, best goals, best deeds and purest characteristics. There are verses that speak of truth, truthful stories, beautiful commands, and prohibition of all bad deeds and blameworthy characteristics. There are verses there are as there are as clear as the light of day for people of insight, there are verses, they are verses that call to faith and cough for reaching the level of certainty. They speak of matters of the unseen
past and future, exactly as they happen, or will happen. There are verses that cause us to know the almighty Lord by his beautiful names, sublime attributes, and perfect lead, there are verses that tell us of his mass messengers, and close friends, and describe them so that it so that it is as if we can see them with our own eyes. Yet despite that, many people did not benefit from it. And none of the stubborn were guided, so as to protect these verses from those in whom there is nothing there is nothing good, and in whose whose heart there is no priority, rather, the only one, the only ones who are guided by them, or whose are those whom Allah singled out for faith and, and whose hearts
were illuminated and purified by these verses. Hence, he says, guidance and glad times for the believers, that is it the Quran guides them to follow the straight path and shows them what they should follow and what they should Shun. And it gives them glad tidings of the reward of, of Allah that results from the from, from guidance to this path. Perhaps it may be said that there are many to claim many who claim to believe, or should this be accepted from everyone who claims to be a believer, or is it essential that there there should be evidence, this is true,
that true truth that there should be evidence, therefore, Allah subhanaw taala describe the characteristics of the believers, those who establish prayer, both obligatory and super rogatory. They perform the prayer with all its our actions, especially parts of conditions and obligate obligatory parts, and even those that are recommended, they are also they also fulfill all the inward aspects of the prayer, which means performing prayer with humility, which is its very essence, bearing in mind that Allah as never it is near and and reflecting upon the words and actions of the prayer and gives the care as is obligatory to those who are entitled to and who
believe in certainty, who believe with certainty in the hereafter. That is, their faith has reached a level of certainty, which refers to complete knowledge that has entered the heart and pumps want to act. Their certainty of the Hereafter dictates that they should strive fully for it and wisdom against the causes that lead to punishment. This is the basis of all good, so the author is saying, look, again, how as we mentioned our number of times in our literacy classes how Allah azza wa jal stresses these two pillars of Islam, Salah and zakah, multiple places in different contexts. One of the greatest signs of the believer are these two pillars of Islam. And that is what the author is
saying here that Allah azza wa jal praises the believers that they are people of guidance, people that are blessed, the author says and how do you know that these people are believers everyone can claim to be a believer. What are the signs of Eman? He says the two way designs are what Allah Azza wa mentioned next, that these are people who pray the Sunnah, they offer the Sunnah and they give this occur. And it is because of these verses and this understanding that Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah industry, Lofa when those people refuse to be Sokka, he waged war against them, because he said that they're not believers, these people who reject Zika the whole Quran says that this is from the
greatest signs of Eman. And those people who say that it's not worship is not part of a religion. It's not part of Islam. It's not a pillar of religion. Those people are no longer Muslims because Allah Israel says that this is from the greatest signs of the believers. And that's why one of the saddest things that we see within our community is that these two pillars of Islam are often neglected. People that don't offer the prayer and people who for sure fall short when it comes to giving this as we asked for
Those who do not believe in the hereafter, and they deny it and reject the one who was sent to confirm it to them, we have made their deeds first seeming to them. So they wander blind in their misguidance. They are confused and give precedence to that which incurs the Wrath of Allah over that which earns his pleasure. They have turned facts on their heads. So they see falsehood as truth and truth as falsehood, such as the ones who have a grievous punishment, that is the most severe and dreadful punishment and in the Hereafter, is they who will be the greatest losers, the loss will be theirs alone, because they will have they will have lost themselves and their families on the Day of
Resurrection and they will have lost the faith to which the messengers called them
very you know, Mohamed Salah Salem are receiving the Quran from one who's most wise, all knowing that it's very the Quran that it's coming down to you. And and you are and you are receiving it and learning it is coming down, it's coming down from one who is the most wise and does what is appropriate or knowing,
He knows our secrets. And for him the hidden aspects of things or like the visible aspects, as it is from one who is most wise or knowing is known the art of is wisdom, and is in people's best, best interest for who knows better than he, what is in their best interest

God who heard the call.
But we're not clear science came to them. They said this is obviously magic. While you're hiding behind we're staying on a tiny
little cane *a nah play by 2007. They rejected the science although in their hearts, they were there were certain that they were true of wickedness and arrogance. So see what was the fate of those who spread mischief. That is remember this beautiful noble story that speaks of Musa neuron and the beginning of revelation to him when Allah chose him for his message and spoke to him directly. So in this particular telling of the story of Musa alayhis salam, which is a very short telling, it is just a few verses as you can see here, this is the extent of the story of Musa Ali Salaam. And the story will be mentioned in far greater detail in the next chapter, which is in surah
cosas para Allah azza wa jal is speaking about only the moment of revelation, because that moment of revelation gives to us as we said, two of the major points of this surah number one, the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala. And number two, the etiquettes that the prophets and messengers of Allah have with him and that the believers should have that's something that you find within them
This particular story, when he stayed in Meridian for a number of years, he set out with his family for Meridian heading towards Egypt. But when he was when he was partway there, he lost his way on a cold dark night. So he said to his family, I see a fire that is, as part of the fire from afar, I will bring some news from there of the road, or I'll bring your burning brand so that you may warm, warm yourselves. This indicates that he has he and his family were lost and very cold. He's lost and his cold with his family the ration say, as we know he stayed in medicine for a number of years he gets married there. It is said that he came back with his wife and with his, with his household.
Some say his mother's some sea servants, a number of them that were living in Medina, and they're all going to return back to Egypt, they lose their way. And he's he's on a mountain light. He thinks that he must be a group of people showering them with fire, I will go and speak to them for two purposes. Number one, the most important one which is mentioned first, to get news from them, directions from them guidance from them really last? Which way do we need to go. And number two, that I can benefit from that fire bring some fire back so at least we have warm for the night. But when he came to it, he was called called Blessed is the one who is at the fire and blessed are those
who are around. That is a last panel that I called him and told him that this was a sacred and blessed place and part of its blessings. Part of his blessed nature was that Allah made it the location in which he spoke directly to Musa called him and appointed him as his messenger.
And Glory be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds and exalted be far above, far above, being thought to have any shortcomings, whether he's perfect in his attributes and deeds, almost a very I am Allah, the Almighty, the most wise, that is, Allah told him that he is Allah, who alone is deserving of worship with no partner or associate, as he said elsewhere, very I am Allah, there is no God worthy of worship except me. So worship Me alone and establish prayer to remember me, the Almighty Who has subjugated all things and to whom all creator beings submit the most wise in his in his command and creation. By His wisdom, he sent his moody slave Musa phenomenon who Allah knew was qualified to
convey his message received His revelation and he spoke to him directly, he spoke to any and, and be spoken to directly by him, because he is so mighty, you should rely on him and not feel vulnerable because you are alone. And you have many enemies who are strong for the forelocks are in Hand of Allah, and all their movements are under his control, throw down your stuff, so he threw it down, when he saw it moving as if it was a snake. The word translated here as snake refers to a male snake that moves quickly. He turned and fed without a backward glance, our fear of the snake that he saw, which was a normal human reaction, but law setting or Musa Do not be afraid. Elsewhere. Allah says
Allah tells us that he said, Come back and don't be afraid for you are quite safe. The messages need need have no fear in my presence, because all that that may cause fear is subject to his his work and decree, and in his and is under his control and command. Those whom Allah chooses for his message and Revelation should not fear anyone but Allah, especially when they are very close to him and have been chosen to speak to him. Allah azza wa jal says, look at this verse in nila hafler, the animal saloon, that the messengers have no fear before me, Allah has sent His prophets, the prophets and messengers of Allah do not have that level of fear before Allah subhanaw taala that will not
allow them to make to have for the people to call out to Allah and soldier to see concessions to ask Allah subhanaw taala for certain things as mentioned throughout the Sunnah, that the Prophet sunnah would ask for certain things that make dua for certain things and ask Allah for certain things. And that shows that the level of fear that they had wasn't a fear of terror, but it is the fear of knowing the magnificence of Allah azza wa jal and His Majesty and the closer that a person comes to to Allah subhanaw taala. That fear isn't terror. It is a fear that allows you to worship Allah azza wa jal in a way that is pleasing to Him. And because of that Allah Allah gives you a contentment and
a solace in your heart and a piece that gives you the blessings of the dunya and akhira. And that is what is mentioned in some of the narrations that when the Prophet Solomon on the night journey, he passed by Musa SNM and Musa Lindstrom was calling out to Allah and saying, Oh Allah, You sent after me a man whose ummah will be greater than mine, meaning they will be more in number than mine. And he was raising his voice. The Prophet Salam said to Gibreel OGB Why is Musa raising his voice to his Lord? Allah you raise your voice to him? Do you believe Ali salaam replied, and he said you will note is used to this from Musa This is nature of Musa Musa is like this, then the process will tell
us in the Hadith of the Angel of Death came to him what did he do? poked her design poked at his eye. This is the nature of Musashi salatu salam. And so he's used to this from your from from Musa which shows that the prophets don't have as Allah azza wa jal says here that they don't have that type of fear in front of them. And as an ambassador, you said that the closer person comes to Allah azza wa jal in worship, and in love and in submission, the more they are like the prophets in that regard, that they
Feel Allah azza wa jal means that they stay away from his haram and they only do that which is pleasing to Him. They don't walk around in a constant state of fear or terror in the way that we understand the word fear to mean it is a different type of fear with which Allah has revealed gives the person contentment and solace and the blessings of the dunya. And Allah knows best. Well, but whoever has done wrong, then after that substitutes good for evil, that is, this is the one who may be subjected to fear and vulnerability, because of what he has committed of wrongdoing and what he has done of sin. As for messengers, as for the messengers, what did they have to do with
vulnerability and fear. Nevertheless, if a person wants himself by disobeying Allah, then he repent and turns to him, and substitutes good deeds for his bad deeds and acts of obedience, for his acts of disobedience allows us forgiving, most merciful, so no one should despair of His mercy and forgiveness, for he forgives all sins and he's more merciful towards his slave than a mother to her child, put your hand in your garment, you will come forth shining white with the arm, that is with no leprosy or disease, whether it's cleaning whiteness, with Dazzle, the adult with dazzle onlookers, as one of the nine signs to Pharaoh and his people. That is these two signs, the turning
of the staff into moving stake and the the hand coming out of the garment cleaning light are among nine signs, go with them and call Pharaoh and his people to Allah azza wa jal gave nine major signs to Musa alayhis salam that he will send to his people, two of them are mentioned here. And that is the stuff turning into the snake, and the shining white bright hand of Musashi salatu salam. And some of them are mentioned and sorted out after Allah Israel sent upon them frogs and locust and blood and run floods and so on, that's mentioned elsewhere. And some of them there is some difference of opinion amongst the political sphere as to what make up the rest of the nine. But the
point is that Allah Israel sent nine major signs to Pharaoh. Each one of those signs in and of itself was enough to be a son from Allah azza wa jal, but he saw all nine humaneness people, and they still disbelieved or they are indeed a rebellious and wicked people who have committed evil by ascribing partners to Allah rebelling and looking down on the slaves of Allah, and by the arrogant behavior in the land. So Musa alayhis salam went to Pharaoh and his chiefs and he called them to Allah and showed them the signs. But when Our Clear Signs came to them, which evidently pointed to the truth, and could be seen as clearly, as the light of the day, they said, this is obviously
magic. But they, they did not stop at merely saying that it was magic. Rather, they said, there was obviously magic that was clear to not talk to anyone. This is something very strange when clear signs and bright light are regarded as being the most obvious Charlaine tax shining tree and magic. Can this be anything but the most arrogance and most audacious waffle,
they rejected the signs and in disbelief and deny the size of Allah, although in their hearts, they were certain that they were true. That is their rejection was not based on doubt or uncertainty. Rather, they rejected them, despite their certain knowledge that they were true of wickedness and unfairness towards the truth of their Lord, and towards themselves, and arrogance towards the truth and towards other people. And they were too arrogant to submit to the messengers and this is something which Allah says, you heard that you can apply to different nations, Allah subhanaw taala says they rejected even though they knew as the truth deep down in their hearts, they knew was the
truth. So the rejection therefore is not because of the message itself. It's because of the diseases of the heart, the arrogance and the wickedness and the evil. That is what Allah has written says that if those people on your multi ama said, Oh, Allah give us another chance in the dunya, and Allah was to send them back again, they still wouldn't believe because he wasn't the issue wasn't that they didn't understand the message, or they didn't understand the truthfulness of it. The issue was the other things that they had in terms of the diseases and the evil of their heart and arrogance, towards the truth and towards other people, and they were too arrogant to submit to the
messengers. So see, what was the fate of those who spread mischief, for it was the worst fate, Allah destroyed them and drown them in the sea. He destroyed a disgrace them and cause the weak and oppressed among slaves to inherit their dwellings.
One or the other. There was hula Iman I will call Al Hamdulillah. Lizzie for Bala Kathy in the hill mini we bestow it will be stored knowledge upon that witness, Philemon and they both said Praise be to Allah who has favored us above many of his believing slaves. Well, what is the Sulaiman Buddha who the work on
your hand as well in
the boy at what whooping Well, Tina, I mean cliche. In a while for balloon moving to lay man succeeded that would he said, oh people we have been taught the speech of birds and we have been given abundantly. This is indeed a managed favor. Well, how's your rally? Sulaiman? Do who mean?
See, well played it for home use our own his arm
means of jinn men and birds were assembled before Solomon and marched forth in an orderly ranks.
In this Quran, Allah matches and highlights his blessings towards the old and his sons were a man whom he blessed with abundant knowledge, as he tells us elsewhere. And remember that within Solomon when they gave judgment in the case of the field, into which some people's sheep had strayed at night, and eaten the crops, we were witness to their judgment, we got to Sulaiman to the right verdict. And to each of them, we gave wisdom and knowledge, and both said in gratitude to the Lord for his great blessing them and bestowing knowledge upon them, Praise be to Allah who has favored us among above many of his believing slaves, so they both praise Allah for making them believers and
people who were blessed, for they were among the elite. Undoubtedly, the believers are of four degrees the righteous above whom are the the martyrs above, above whom are the strong and shoo in faith Cydia, Cydia clean, above whom are the prophets that will display man were among the leader of the messengers, even though they are below the ranks of the five messengers of strong resolve. They are among the the noble and virtuous messengers whom Allah mentioned by way of praise and conduct common commendation in his book, so they, they praise Allah for having attained the status. This is a sign of a person being blessed, that he is grateful to Allah for his bounty, both spiritual and
worldly. And he sees our blessing from his Lord, where he does not boast about them. And he is not filled with self admiration because of them. Rather, he sees that this requires him that this requires him to give a great deal of thanks, having praised both of them together, Allah then singles out Solomon by mentioning some of the exclusive blessings that were bestowed upon him. Because Allah had given him great power and dominion, and he was blessed with things that his father did not have, May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon both of them. So the man succeeded that with that, as he inherited his knowledge and profit, and he added knowledge of his own his father's
knowledge, perhaps he's learned from his father where he had of knowledge, in addition to what he already had of knowledge at the time of his father, as we have seen above, the law says, We got to slay man to the right verdict. So a man said in gratitude to Allah and speaking of his favorite old people, we have been taught the speech of birds, we could understand what the bird said, as when he had a conversation with the hoop, who bowed
up, and the bird spoke to spoke back to him. And as he understood the words of the ad to his fellow ants, as we shall see below, Lars was an associate that we taught to say, Man, the speech of the birds. And the author says that this is what was found here, because Elijah will mention his, his statements or his conversation with the hood, and also that he understood the conversation of the ants, the scholars of Tafseer, they differ as to whether three men only Sam only understood the speech of the birds, or all of the animals, was the only the birds that Allah Azza gave him the ability to understand and converse with was all of the animals. A number of them took the position
that it was only the birds. The question that I have for you here is if we take that position, how do those collars then explain this incident with the ants? Because he understands what the Auntie's saying.
How do they explain that? Those collars that said that he only spoke to the birds
and communicate the bread and butter is like, no.
Oh, he understood, right. He understood the conversation. That's the meaning here.
So here, Allah azza wa jal says that we gave to the man the ability to speak to the birds.
And also Allah azza wa jal says that he also understood the conversation of the ants.
Some of these calls with the tafsir, who have the position that he only was able to understand the speech of birds, not other animals, and others said no, all of the animals. The question is, are those scholars who said that he could only converse with birds or understand the speech of the birds? How then, do they explain his understanding the speech of the ants?
The question makes sense.
lotto No, because Allah gave him everything.
scholars said, and Allah knows best they said, because the answer are being referred to here are ants with wings. And so they came into the general word of a pirate by using Arabic language means anything which flies. And so they said that this is why it's made as an exception to the like, it's part of the answer, because there are answer. There's different species of ants and some of them have wings and they can fly. And those are the ones that are being referred to here. The point that I wanted to mention here is that this concept of syrup very precise, if they come across a position that they have, and you find amongst the stuff, don't do as some people do anything called Mother
musta made a mistake because happened and I noticed five verses down the last weeks and months. That doesn't make sense. They have to understand they know what they're saying when they choose these positions, but either way
possibly, or maybe not all of them had wings because Allah azza wa jal is saying that he understood the Queen and the thought that he spoke to her, maybe she's the one that has the wings and so on. The point is that you can, there's no right or wrong in this, but the point is, the scholars with the chooser position is normally something which is well studied and well analyzed, and Allah knows best. And we have been given abundantly that is, Allah has bestowed upon us many blessings and means of power, authority and mind, that he did not bestow upon any other human hence called hence he called upon his Lord and said, and grant me a dominion, the likes of which will never be granted to
anyone after me. And by the way, just as a point on that, if you read the early books of the CDC, the statements of the companions and the tab you're in, accept them for what they are, if they see if we see them in our best said something about us even miss Ruth said something, and hustle and bustle is at the mercy of this is the position that you had, even though there may have been others who differed with them, that's still like a valid position of Tafseer. Those spots from those two generations, especially the companions in the tabular in that have seen often is something which is, you know, which requires like, don't, don't be from those people who say, don't, that's a weak
opinion, or that's a peculiar view or something from amongst the tablet, and the Companions, unless there's a clear reason as to why someone would say that, generally speaking, those statements should just be accepted and used. But because often with these types of things, whether you can speak to all of the animals, or only the ants, only the birds, doesn't make a difference doesn't make a difference to the story. And so with a lot of the stuff to go into those details is our authentic weak, this doesn't make a difference to the story. And that's why those differences then amongst the set of dispositive seer, and the scholars of Hadith now, we used to go to the extent of authenticity
or not with those issues, because it doesn't make a difference anyway. And so when it comes to those issues, it will make a difference doesn't really matter if it's the most authentic or there's some weakness in it, or maybe there's someone missing in the generators, they never used to look at those types of issues. So Allah subjugated the devil to him, and they did whatever he wanted of works that the others weren't able to do. And he subjected subjugated the wind for him, it would cover the distance of a monster journey in the morning and amongst journey in the evening. This that Allah bestowed upon us with which he has favored us and for which he has singled us out, is indeed a
manifest favor, that is a clear favor, those we fully acknowledge the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala his armies of gin, men and birds were assembled before Solomon and march 4 in auditing ranks, that is, is huge and very troops gathered for him. For among the, from among the jinn and devils and from among the birds, they formed, orderly ranks and behaved in a very orderly fashion, when they marched and halted. And when they moved on, he had preparation he had made preparation for that and was well equipped. All of these troops were under his control and could not disobey Him or rebelled against Him. Allah subhanho wa Taala says elsewhere, this is our gift, so give, so give freely or
withhold without having a render account to having to render account that is given that measure. So he set out with his army with this huge army on one of his journeys
either a white wedding in New Orleans, namely
a new one, hon. Yeah, are you hon luda, Hulu Misaki. Anna Kamala women? Sulaiman laughs women Hakuna Sula, Eman what? To whom lash rune. And when they came to the valley of the ants one and said, Oh ants enter your dwelling celestially Man and his army crushed you unwittingly, feta, feta best semi Eldar he can mean coli, one color of BLM ziani and ash Khurana automatic and Letty Ananda Alejo, Isla de de y la vie de the EO N
ni B ratiometric. What other thing ni Matic Fei bedico saw anything? Sleeman Solomon smiled amused at the ants words. And he said, Oh my lord, inspire me to be constantly grateful for your blessings that you have bestowed upon me and my parents, and do righteous deeds and the righteous deeds with which you will be pleased and include me by Your mercy among your wretched slaves. And when they came to the value of the ants, one answer learning is fellow ants. Oh, and enter your dwelling literally man and his armies crushed unwillingly. This ant advise the other ants and made him them clear and made it made them here either by itself, in which case Allah gave the other ants
extraordinary powers of hearing, because the alarm that was addressed to all the and that therefore the value was raised by only one end. And this this would be something most amazing or that an ad or that ant told the others around
on it, and the news were transmitted from one to another, until it had reached them or telling them to be careful, and how to take proper precautions which was, which was by entering their dwellings. The aunt told them, who Sulaiman and his troops were and how great his authority was, and apologize to them on behalf of Saudi man and his troops, saying, if the question is not deliberate on their part, and they will not realize what happened, because it is from the etiquette of the aunt, with the Prophet of Allah, the etiquette that the aunt has with the Prophet of Allah subhanaw taala that she says that and if silly man or his army trample upon you, it wasn't deliberate, she's making an
excuse for him, already apologizing on his behalf as author mentions, and that is from the and the etiquettes of the aunt with the Prophet of Allah, let alone therefore the etiquettes that we should have with the prophets of Allah and the messengers of Allah. And later on Atticus, you should then have with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Today man, Ali Salam heard with the answer, and he smiled amused at the ants words. He was amazed by his eloquence and advice and how well spoken it was. This is how the Prophet peace, peace be upon them or were they had perfect etiquette and showed amazement when appropriate, but they did not go beyond smiling in the case of the messenger, sallAllahu wasallam
was left it was all his laughter was smiling, laughing out loud is indicative of a lack of dignity and bad manners, but not smiling and not being amazed by what is amazing is indicative of a rough manner and hard heartedness. The messengers were far above such attitudes. And also it shows from the benefits of him smiling, is the appreciation of Allah's blessings upon you, he smells because he's acknowledging what the ant is saying, acknowledging the blessings of Allah azza wa jal upon me and to acknowledge those blessings. And to thank Allah azza wa jal is something which is, which is obligatory upon receiving those blessings. So a man said in gratitude to Allah Who had caused him to
attain this level of honor, oh my lord, inspire me and enable me to be constantly grateful for your blessings that you have bestowed upon me. And my parents, for the best thing to the parents is a blessing to the child. So he asked his Lord, to enable him to be constantly grateful for his blessings, both spiritual and worldly, to him and to his parents. And this is also from the beautiful etiquettes of this to our look at how slim and Ali Salam thanks Allah azza wa jal, not only for the blessings that Allah bestowed upon him, but that he bestowed upon his father before him. And that's something that you often forget that the blessings that we have amongst us now
today, many of those blessings are as a result of the blessings that our parents and grandparents and how many had all of us that are born Muslim, we didn't choose Islam, Allah chose it for us, and for our parents before us, and who knows how many for how many generations that's from the greatest blessings of Allah subhanaw taala that we didn't have to go and seek out Islam the way that some people have to and how difficult it was for them, Allah has given me the path easier for us. And so Allah subhanaw taala honors people in this way to acknowledge the blessings of Allah, not only upon yourself, but upon those who came before you, that Allah azza wa jal honored and favored and blessed
it was also from the good etiquettes that a Muslim should have when it comes to presume Allah as origin and to do righteous deeds with which you will be pleased that is enabled me to do registers with which you will be pleased because they are in accordance with your commands and are done sincerely free from anything that may undermine them or spoil them. And so those two are also linked. thank Allah for the blessings upon you and your parents and those who came before you. And then oh Allah give me the ability to use those blessings in a way that is pleasing to you. And that is the link between those two issues
and include an include me by Your mercy among yourself, your righteous slaves and admit to me to paradise for Paradise is a is a lot of the righteous of all levels. This is a story that Allah tells us of how Solomon reacted when he heard what the answered
then he mentioned another story describing how city man talk to the birds
whatever whatever called a player or Falco Animalia
on who the who the Emperor and I mean, or he'd been he checked on the birds and said why do I not see the hope? op op op up right
that's all I see.
What is it
Hupo Hupo hoopy in the US
too hot you know the Arabic language they often say these dialects and make different pronunciations English is the same. I do not see the hoopoe or is he among the absent
laowai diva one who either
Shaadi then hola as the one who Hola, TN EB Subroto and in moving, I will surely punish him severely, or slaughter him unless he bring me a valid excuse. He checked on the bridge. This is indicative of his perfect resolve and control and his good way of managing his troops and shows how he managed affairs both small and great by himself to the extent that
did not neglect this matter, which was checking on the birds and making sure whether they were all present or any of them were missing. This is what is highlighted by this verse. There's nothing very in the case of those who say that he checked on the bridge to find out where the hoopoe was, so that he could, he could he could tell him,
he could tell them where the water was near or for, because it was claimed that the hoopoe could see water beneath a thick layer of earth, there is no evidence to support this view. Rather, the rational and textual evidence indicates that this notion is false. With regard to rational evidence is known on the basis of custom and experience that these animals were all present and none of them had their extraordinary vision that would enable it to see water beneath a thick layer of Earth. If that had been the case, Allah would have mentioned it, because it would have been one of the greatest signs.
As for textual evidence, if this is what had been meant, the text would have said he looked for the hoopoe so that he could search for water. Then when he did not find him, he said what he said, or he looked for the hoopoe, or he searched for him, or similar phrases, whether he checked on the words to see which were present and which were absent. And whether they were staying in the positions he had appointed for them. What you will often find in the commentary of these verses Intersil is that the reason why Allah the Prophet saw the man on Islam is to use the Hood Hood, is because the hood had the ability to discern where water was he would send her head to look for the watering holes for
his army, so that they would know where to stop on their journey. That's what you will find in many of the words of Dr. seal this authorship Saudi Rahimullah today saying that doesn't seem to be apparent to me, but rather what Allah is really saying what the fact that the fact that the means is checking on them, meaning that from the role of the general, because slim and Allison was the general of his army, is just checking up on every one, every member of his army to make sure that they're doing their tasks, they're in the position that he allocated. And as he's doing that he realizes this bird what isn't what it's meant to be. So it's nothing to do with him finding water on
water, wherever. And what he says is, this has also been supported by the rest of the story, because what the hotel did instead was that he went to, as we know below peace and he saw that kingdom and what they were doing in terms of their worship besides Allah and Allah knows best lay man, Ali Salam was not more of a salon man, Allison was not in desperate need of water such that he needed the skill of the hoopoe, because he had the devil's instruction as disposal who could have dug up water for him, no matter how deep it was. And Allah had subjugated the wind to him. It would cover the distance of a monster journey in the morning animals journey in the evening. Would he so why would
he need the hoopoe? These interpretations that are found in some commentaries, and are widely narrated and widely known, or transmitted verbatim from the views of the children of Israel, but those who narrated them did not realize that they are contrary to the sound meanings. They continue to be passed on from earlier narrators to later ones, to the point that they were thought to be true. And thus, these corrupted views were included in some DeviceID commentaries of the Quran. But those who are smart and intelligent realize that this Quran that is clear Arabic Quran in which Allah addresses all of humankind, knowledgeable and ignorant, like instructs them to reflect upon
his meaning, and understand them according to the Arabic language, which is well understood, of which true Arabs are not ignorant. So if there are views in Arabia from anyone other than the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They are to be understood in light of that principle. If they are in harmony with it, then they may be accepted, because the wording of the text indicates that, but if both the wording and the meaning or one of them differ from that, then is to be rejected and deemed false, because we have the one known original reference text which says something to the contrary.
And this is a conclusion that may be reached based on the meaning and indication of the text. In conclusion, the fact that salaryman Elisa Lam checked on the birds and noticed that the hoopoe was absent, indicates that he was in full control and was skilled in managing his dominion himself. And he was very smart and alert, as he noticed that this small bird was absent, and said, Why do I not see the hoopoe? Or is he among the absent? That is the fact that I cannot see him because he is not visible as he is hidden among these many communities? Or is it because he is absent without permission and not on my instructions?
Then he got angry, angry with him and threatened him, saying, I will surely punish him severely, but not the point of killing or sloth or slaughter him unless he brings me a valid excuse. There is a clear reason for his absence. This is indicative of his perfect piety and fairness, he wouldn't he did not simply swear to punch or kill him, because because that could only in only be in the case of his of his having committed a sin or wrongdoing, but there could have been a clear excuse for his absence. Therefore, he made this exception because of his piety and smartness.
For Mecca, OIRA you
In order to be man and to help Obi wan to come in, say back in the neighbor in the scene. Before long the hoopoe came and said, I have learned about something of which you have no knowledge. I bring you reliable news from cyber in the budget to
time liquid water yet mean cliche in what a house will not mean. I found a woman raining over them who has been granted everything that rule is expected to have and she has a splendid throne.
Was that too to her work Omaha is doing that is Shem seeming hooning he wasn't yet no one was showing up on what
was in Jana who was showing up on line man I don't mind he said Ed, for whom lie.
I found her and her people worshipping the sun instead of Allah, the shaytaan has made their differ seeming to them and has bought them from the right path. So they are not guided.
Lis Judo little lady who you will harbor F is the one on the Whyalla mama to phone our man to our new moon. Rather they should worship Allah Who brings forth what is what is hidden in the heavens and earth, and who knows what you conceal, and what and who and who knows what you conceal and what you disclose.
Allah Hoonah Illa Illa was born out of allowing law, there is no God worthy of worship except Him, Lord of the magnificence of the magnificent, magnificent throne. Before long the hope the hoopoe came. This is indicative of the order in which Solomon was held by his troops and how great is control over them was even though the hoopoe
who had failed to attend at a good excuse, he could not stay for long and sad to say, Man, I have learned about something of which you have no knowledge there is I have not I have knowledge that you that you do not have despite your vast knowledge and high level there. And I bring you reliable news that is certain news from cyber. This is the name of a well known tribe in Yemen. Recently, man Ali salaam
Where did you live?
Palestine, and Saba is in in Yemen. So he's joining around his area. And this bird has flown to that distance, and seen the news of these people or the situation of those people and come back to report to Slimani Sinha. Then he explained what the what that news was and said I found a woman raining over them, namely raining over the tribe of seven. And she's a woman who has been granted everything that a ruler is expected to have. There is everything that kings or rulers usually have of worth weapons, troops, fortresses, citadels, and so on. And she has a splendid throne, on which she sits is huge and magnificent. The size, the size of the throne is indicative of great dominion and power
and of the ruler, having a large number of advisors and this is the queen below peace. My name is Ben peace as mentioned in some of the words of the seal. And there's different iterations concerning a throne because Allah azza wa jal describes as being optionally a splendid throne. And there are different narrations that you find are most of them from the Israelite traditions, about how it was covered with gems and precious stones and diamonds and so on. And it was big and wide. And so it was a statement of her power and her wealth. This was a symbol of status for her.
I found her I found her and her people worshipping the sun instead of Allah. That is, they were polytheists who worship the sun, the shaytaan has made their deeds first seeming to them. So they thought that what they were following was the truth. So they are not guided. Because if a person thinks that what he is following is the truth, there is not much hope of him being guided until he changes his belief. Then he said, rather they should worship Allah Who brings forth was hidden in the heavens and earth days. He knows what is hidden and secret in our religion and our regions of the heavens and of earth, including the tiniest creatures seeds, and was hidden in people's hearts
here what Allah azza wa jal says, yes to do. dilla the translation that's given here is rather they should worship Allah. But the meaning of the word Allah with the shadow which is the real reading or the majority of the Quran, means the Allah. The meaning of this verse is the shape man made their deeds for seeming to them so that they are not guided to the worship of Allah azza wa jal, that is how the connection of the verses the shaytaan has bought them. So they cannot be guided to the worship of Allah azza wa jal, rather than that they should worship Allah. This translation is in the reading or the translation that you have here which is rather they should worship Allah is the other
pillar which is the reading of Al Kisai, which is Allah, Allah is to do the law, Allah means rather, what they should do is worship Allah azza wa jal. And so the reading of the majority including our reading the translation would be that they should not be guided to the worship of Allah azza wa jal and this is the translation of the other
I must correct in any way because obviously both of them are from the Quran. He brings forth waste hidden on Earth, and in heaven by by sending the rain and causing plants to grow, and he will bring forth was hidden in the earth when the template is blown, and the dead emerge from the earth, so that he may require them for these and he knows what you you can sell. And when you disclose Allah, there is no god what God worthy of worship except him. There is no one should worship, turn to turn to humble himself before or love any, but Him for He is the only one to whom devotion should be shown because of what he has. He has a perfect attributes and because of the blessings He restores,
which makes that pure devotion I must Lord of the Magnificent Throne, which is the roof of creation, as vast as the earth and they haven't the sovereign who's possessed the sovereign who is possessed of great authority and might is the one to whom we should humble ourselves prostrating Well, the hoopoe was spared punishment when he delivered this important news. And so the man was amazed at how had been hidden from him because of his wisdom and mature thinking he wanted to verify the news

Jarrell Jerell soon Take this letter of mine and deliver it to them, then withdraw from them and observe how they respond to so the man said, we shall see whether you are telling the truth or you are alive. Take the set of mind texts of which we shall see below and deliver it to them, then withdraw from them that is move away from them, but not too far.

Oh, let's see.
You had a mother who in LA Akita boom Carrie. He said oh cheese and honor the letter has caught has been delivered to me. in
No Man's will Imana. In Bismillah you're watching Manuel walking is from Solomon. And it starts in the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. alerta Allahu Allah, Yahweh, Tony Muslim, meaning do not be arrogant towards me, but come to me in submission. So the hippo took the letter and delivered it to them. And and she said to her people, and honorable letter has come has been delivered to me, there is a letter of great import is important from one of the greatest kings on of the earth. Then she highlighted the content of the letter saying is from Solomon, and he starred in the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, do not be arrogant towards me, but come to me
in submission, that is, do not try to prove your superiority over me, when others submit to me, submit to My authority and obey my commands and come to me in submission that is very concise, but at the same time, it is perfect, perfectly clear, because it includes forbidding them to show arrogance towards him or remain as they are, as well as instructions to submit his authority obey him, come to Him and accept his call to submit. This shows that it is encouraged to begin with letter by quoting the best manner in the Name of Allah, the Most gracious the most merciful info and enter include the name of the sender in the first line of the letter will mentally stammer and
stutter he says come to me and drop me arrogant towards me become too mean submission and from the meanings of this word submission has come to me as Muslims. And that is what the story then goes on to show that he was calling out to the path of Allah azza wa jal so he doesn't just want it to submit for the sake of submission because he wants power and authority over he wants to come as Muslims to need Muslim income to me as Muslims meaning accepting religion of Allah subhanaw taala and Otto says that this also shows that from the etiquettes is that you should begin your letters with Bismillah in fact anything which is good and which is positive should be done to begin with the
name of Allah subhanaw taala that is the general sunnah when you're doing something which is good and positive, to begin with the name of Allah azza wa jal and to invoke Allah's blessings is something which is a good practice. Call it
a Johanan Mala o f Tuni fi Emery makan to call the IET and Emraan had to shed who she said oh chief's advice advise me regarding this matter with which I am now faced for I make no decision without your consent or Luna.

morcilla tune Elaine, we had a yeti
the mayoral Jerilyn and I'm almost no one bow shall send him a gift. Then see with what response
the envoys will return as a sign of a resolve and wisdom she gathered together the senior and prominent prominent figures of our kingdom and said, Oh chiefs advised me regarding this matter with which I am not faced that is telling me how we should respond. Should we OBEY Him and submit or should we? Or what should we do? And as cortada Rahim, Allah Tada said,
this woman will kiss the screen. She was a woman of intelligence, before Islam and after Islam, and for more intelligence is what Allah azza wa jal relates to her in this particular narration in this passage of Surah naman from the first signs of our intelligence is that she gathers a senior advisors, so she doesn't just want to do what she thinks is best, she gathers them, and she wants to know what their advices What do you think, this is the mighty king, he sent me this demand, he sent me this letter, what's the best way to respond that from her intelligence, and from intelligence, obviously will be you know, the best of that intelligence, her use of it is when she accepts Islam,
and she believes in Allah subhanaw taala. But I make no decision without your consent, that is, I do not make any decision without consulting you. They said we are powerful and great words, that is if you reject his call, and do not obey, we are strong and are able to fight, it seems that they were inclined towards this view, which if they have followed it would have led to the destruction, but they did not settle on that. Rather they said but you are in command. That is, is your decision, because they were aware of premature thinking and resolve and her sincerity towards them, consider them. That is think the matter over the matter over and decide will always you will give. So why do
they say these advisors that yes, he's strong and he's got to be kingdom but were strong as well. We have a mighty kingdom, let us go and fight them. If they want to fight, we'll give them a fight. That's the advice.
She said to them. She said to them.
She said to them convinced by what they said and explain the bad consequences of fighting kings when they invade a city ravaged by killing, taking prisoners, plundering his wealth and destroying its buildings and humiliate is prominent leaders there is they make the leaders and Nobodies people among the lowest. In other words, fighting is not a good idea. Moreover, I'm not going to submit before finding out more and sending someone to learn about his situation. And then we will base our decision on that information. So that's advice rather than coming into a war people die you lose Walters destruction. Let us speak to him. Let us see what he actually means what he wants. Then she
said but I sent him a gift that see with what response the invoice will return from him. Will he persist in what he says? Or will he be swayed by the gift and change his mind?
And how is the situation and that of his troops? So she says I will send him a gift Qatada Rahim, Allah Tada said that this was from her intelligence, because she knew that people are swayed by gifts. You give someone a gift, you immediately take their heart, someone comes to you and randomly they give you a gift that you're not expecting. And it's a nice gift, something which will which will make an impact upon you in the heart. And that is why the optimum is to say, the head of the Habu give gifts and you will increase in love for one another. It's just natural when someone gives you a gift you weren't expecting. It's not necessarily for anything you did for them, or as a result
of a favor on to something that they give to you. That is a pure gift. That's something which has an impact upon the heart. And so she says, let me give him a gift. Let's see how that works with him.
Suleyman called to meet Dawn and Evie Manning.

So she sent a gift to him with envoys from among the wise men of her people, when the envoy came to say, Man, that is, when the envoys came to him with the gift, he said denouncing them, and expressing anger for them failing to respond and submit to Him. Do you seek to appease me with gifts? What Allah has given me it's better, it's better than what he has given you. Your gift does not mean much to me, and I do not take pleasure in it. For Allah has forced me and bestowed many blessings upon me. Rather it is you take pleasure in gifts, because of your love for this world. And because and because you have little in your
possession compared to what Allah has given me. So does the gift make an impact upon him and he served the desired impact? No, because despite your intelligence, mushy has, the prophets of Allah are far more intelligent and Allah azza wa jal gives to them Revelation, Then he gave instructions to the envoy without putting it in writing because of his mature thinking. And because he was sure that he would transmit his words exactly. He said, Go back to them with your gift will surely come to them with forces that they cannot resist, we will surely expel them there from a base and humiliated. So the envoi went back to them and conveyed to them what Solomon had said, and they made
preparations to go to Solomon.

Then he then when he saw it set before him. So the man said this is a favorite favorite for my Lord, to test whether I will be grateful, grateful or ungrateful. Whoever is grateful, his is great gratitude is to his benefit to his own benefit. And whoever is ungrateful, then surely Allah sufficient and most generous God and Akira Otto Shahana Teddy amotekun Emtek Gumina levena, Allah Tilden, he said, discuss her throne for her, let us see whether she will discover the truth or she will not recognize
it. So a man knew that they would inevitably come to him. So he said to the jinn and humans who were present who are present with him, which of you can bring me her throne before they come to me in submission, that is, so that it will be permissible for me to dispose of it before they become Muslim after the after which their wealth will not be lost. For me. A strong Gene said the word translated here as a strong gene refers to one who is strong and very active and energetic are free to the strongest types of jinn. That's why he says a strong engineer the gym there are different types. The gym is a whole races like a whole species like humans, from amongst them are ones that
are extremely powerful that Allah azza wa jal has given to them the most power and speed and so on. In Arabic, they call it the fleet. That's the one that has been referred to here. A strong Gene said the word transient here as I will bring it to you before you rise from your seat. I'm surely strong enough and maybe trusted.

But despite that, the strong genset I commit myself to bring it despite its great size and heavyweight and despite the distance before
