Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam today is the 30th of October of the year 2019 which is equivalent to the second of the month of Ramadan we are one of the year 1441 according to the Islamic usually calendar. And this is by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala our first class from 10 that we have titled An Evening with the Quran, a series that will be focusing on Surah two cough chapter 50 of the Quran.

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

Why was Surah two kind of chosen?

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

And before that we can ask the question why was the Quran chosen from the many disciplines that we could have chosen to began our series with here at Dar Al Israa. Why Surah took off and before that why the Quran

00:01:17--> 00:01:25

is dear brothers and sisters a book that transforms everything that it makes contact with that is the nature of the Quran.

00:01:27--> 00:01:46

Whether that is a person, a human being, whether it is a month, whether it is a night, whether it is an angel, whether it is an alma, whenever the Quran makes contact with any of these elements, it will bring it into its full potential and bring greatness from it.

00:01:48--> 00:02:00

How can consider that the Quran was delivered to us via an angel His name is Gibreel and therefore it is no surprise that he in the eyes of Allah is the Greatest of All angels.

00:02:01--> 00:02:11

The Quran was delivered to the ummah of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and therefore this nation it is the greatest of all nations in the eyes of Allah.

00:02:12--> 00:02:20

Given through our Prophet Muhammad Ali he stood out was salam. And it is no surprise he is the greatest of all human beings.

00:02:21--> 00:02:39

It given in the month of Ramadan, the Quran was revealed in the month of Ramadan, and it is the greatest of all months, specifically on Laila to Qatar The Night of Decree in Anza. Now, see lay letting other and it is the greatest of all mites.

00:02:40--> 00:03:19

And therefore this is a very suitable description of the Quran, a book that transforms everything that it comes into contact with. And perhaps this is one of the secrets why the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say as Buhari narrates on your authority of automatic do it now we have made him no offense, you would say hi Eurocom how you recommend animal for the best of you are those who teach the Quran and they learn it themselves. The most of you are those who learn the Quran and they teach it to others, a book that transforms absolutely everything that it comes into contact with Latina Illallah

00:03:20--> 00:03:52

the Quran has also spoken about itself. Allah janela Giuliano who has described the Quran using the Quran just for you, dear brother, do you sister to realize what it is that you are about to embark on in terms of a study? Consider these descriptions mentioned by Allah subhanho wa Taala Alhamdulillah it is not the description of a scholar or a student of knowledge from Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Who describing his words. It is a book that has been described by the Quran as newer light.

00:03:53--> 00:04:06

Allah Jalla Giuliano who said Khadija comin Allah He Nauru Aki terrible Moby in from Allah has come to you in light, any book that is clear light by the way, in every sense of the word.

00:04:12--> 00:04:30

Light in your knowledge, light during your life, light during your dying moments, light during your grave, light on the Day of Resurrection light and till you antigen Allahu Akbar. It is a book that has been described as a book of light. How else has Allah described the Quran?

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

Allah has described the Quran as being Messiah, enlightenment, the same way that your physical eye requires light for it to spot opportunities and to realize Han the internal eye it also requires light Messiah, enlightenment, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Allah who said, Elijah Khumba saw your own rhombi come there has come to you enlightenment from your Lord. That is the Quran.

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

How else has Allah Jalla Jalla and who described the Quran? Allah has described it as a Huda guidance.

00:05:07--> 00:05:12

Who the Allah says, this is guidance, ask somebody who was lost.

00:05:14--> 00:05:26

Whether he or she is a a Wayfarer in the desert or anywhere else. What do they need the most? They need Hoda. They need guidance. They need navigation. Ask those who

00:05:27--> 00:06:12

were struggling to find their feet in the field of Islam till they found or hate. They will say what we needed the most was guidance. Hoda. Allah says Allah the Quran has the WHO that this is guidance. House has Allah Jalla Jalla and will describe the Quran this is description number four, Allah said it is morphine. It is clear Khadija mean Allah Who know what you terrible Nabil there has come to you from Allah, light and a book that is clear. And Allah said about it really certainly in Arabic iMobile in this Quran is in an Arabic tongue that is clear. So unlike the words of the soothsayers, the magician's that is vague, obscure, unclear, dark, confusing, contradictory.

00:06:13--> 00:06:25

The Quran is clear, clear in its commandments, clear in his prohibitions, clear in its predictions clear clear, leaving no room for doubt. Allah has described the Quran as being Moby clear.

00:06:26--> 00:06:50

Allah Jalla Jalla, who has also described the Quran as being a Shiva, a healing? Is there a physical illness that you are experiencing? Do you know somebody from your family and friends who was going through some sort of terminal illness or otherwise? Is there an internal illness that you yourself are battling out with whether it is envy when it is misplaced hatred when it is misplaced?

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

Showing off RIA

00:06:54--> 00:07:14

is there an internal illness, lack of ability to wheat from the fear of Allah, a lack of desire to prefer in congregation a lack of desire to wear the correct Islamic hijab? The Quran is described as a Shiva as a healing and who of us does not experience one or the other? Allah subhana Medina who said about the Quran

00:07:15--> 00:07:26

or Luna Xin Amin Al Quran the Maha Shiva warahmatu limit we need we bring down from the Quran that is that which is a healing and a mercy for the believers.

00:07:27--> 00:07:33

How else has Allah Jalla Jalla Allah who describe the Quran he has described it as being to beat

00:07:34--> 00:07:37

a means of steadfastness to meet

00:07:38--> 00:08:04

we want them from time to time, we swear from lane to lane at times, the challenges of life are many Islamically or otherwise, the Quran is ATSB. That means of steadfastness Allah said about the Quran, Kedah. Lika lino third BTB he for that we revealed the Quran in this way to give steadfastness to your heart. How else has Elijah Elijah who described the Quran he has described it as a vicar, a reminder.

00:08:06--> 00:08:23

And the fact that you and I we are human beings in Arabic being inserted in certain meaning, somebody who was prone to forgetfulness makes it clear just how much we need that reminder. 24/7 And what better reminder could there be than the one that is extracted directly from the book of Allah? Jalla Jalla Allah.

00:08:25--> 00:08:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala said about the Quran in Hua Allah, the Quran Lila me it is but a reminder for the world it is a reminder for the world.

00:08:37--> 00:09:05

How else has Allah Jalla Janelle who described the Quran he has described it as being Bushra, good news. Good news. Have you not asked yourself the question before maybe during times of weakness as well, when you say why am I doing all of this? How come I am so different to others? What is the outcome that I'm hoping to get? I am suppressing my desires and I am marrying my fantasies and my urges for the sake of Allah all for what

00:09:06--> 00:09:10

what is the outcome of patients what would I get? We need good news right?

00:09:12--> 00:09:37

And that is why the Quran has described itself as being what a Bushra good news Allah said when Zina they can kita but he began a new coalition. We have brought down the Quran upon you O Prophet sallallahu Sallam to clarify all things while holding and guidance what after mutton mercy what will Charlene Muslimeen and good news for the Muslims? This is what awaits you dear Muslim, if you remain patient, Allahu Akbar.

00:09:39--> 00:10:00

How else has Allah gender Generico described the Quran he has described the Quran as being Baraka, a means of blessing. Baraka is in reference to Xia that you are nama an increase the stock Quran whenever it makes contact with something, it will amplify it in its quantity and it will make it beneficial. That is what the Quran does. And that is the meaning

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

Have Baraka by the way.

00:10:03--> 00:10:36

Allah subhanaw taala set in description of the Quran Kitab Boone Anza Now who in Africa Mobarak This is a book that we have revealed to you that is filled with Baraka blessing. Do you feel that you miss Baraka in your time? You are struggling with Baraka in your sleep you require nine hours 10 hours maybe 12 hours you still feel it's not enough. Is there no Baraka in your money although you have more than an average wage is there no Baraka in your health you go to the gym yet you're still an orthotic is no no Baraka in your relationship you may have 10 children there is no Baraka in your children. Do you feel that that is you?

00:10:37--> 00:10:44

The Quran is a means of Baraka making those things that you do and those things you possess, great in quantity and beneficial as well.

00:10:45--> 00:10:52

This is precisely why our predecessors Dear brothers and sisters who realized these descriptions that you just heard, and others

00:10:54--> 00:10:59

would all be saying the same set of words before they passed away.

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

What would they say? They would say we wish that we had not wasted our life. We wish that all of our time was spilled into the Quran. Rajiv,

00:11:10--> 00:11:12

look at someone like Sophia no authority

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

who filled the world with his knowledge and his fear and his Hadith.

00:11:19--> 00:11:28

What would you say towards the end of his life, a man who dedicated his entire life to the Quran and Sunnah he would say later on you can talk to sorrow to Allah Manuel Quran

00:11:29--> 00:11:34

Imam Soufiane would say I wish that I had limited my life

00:11:35--> 00:11:38

purely to the study of the Quran

00:11:39--> 00:11:44

and look at the words of ALLAH Amish. So they might even know Mahara and one of the tabby I mean,

00:11:46--> 00:11:59

who had a particular skin condition that's why they nicknamed him Amash. By the way that's not his name. That's a nickname in reference to his skin condition. He would say, Well, I'm in now Rafa, Anila hooby he Al Quran, one of the things that Allah elevated my status with

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

was the Quran.

00:12:03--> 00:12:14

And he said, If I was a shopkeeper, every one of you would hate me. If I was a shopkeeper, every one of you would despise me because of the way I look. He said, Allah elevated my status because of this book.

00:12:16--> 00:12:58

And look at the words of shareholders libreboot Me or Rama Tolani and when you hear this name, you think you're alive. You think jihad, you think Dawa, you think sleepless nights, you think debates with the innovators and the polytheist and the pagans, you think struggle you're think sacrifice. You think of a man who was so busy with the Islamic sciences and in the worship of Allah that he didn't even have time to get married. You think of a man who spent all of his money in the past of Allah so much so that they needed to remind him to eat because he would forget to eat a man who his brother would have to at times wash his clothes for him because he didn't look in the mirror to

00:12:58--> 00:13:22

realize that his clothes needed washing, too busy reading, studying, advocating teaching, removing the veils of ignorance from himself and from others. Yet what did this man say? Shortly before he passed away, bearing in mind he passed away in prison, because of his sacrifice in the path of Allah. And by the way before he died, he had recited the Quran 80 or so times over.

00:13:24--> 00:13:55

Till he received or he arrived at the area, where Allah Jalla Jalla who said in Al Motta Cana Fijian do and the pious people they will be amidst rivers and gardens, female God you said your canine definitely came more potential, with a seat of honor with a Lord who was able a king who was able they will be with him the righteous, and then when he recited this area, his blessed soul returned back to Allah subhanho wa taala. What did this man say before he died?

00:13:57--> 00:14:10

He said, When Adam Twyla totally I actually I will call it fever You the man in Quran, he said, I have regretted wasting my life other focusing on other than the meanings of the Quran.

00:14:12--> 00:14:28

I haven't regretted wasting my life focusing on other than the meanings of the Quran. If a man like Ali Han muda says that it means nothing. When a man like even 18 year says that who is a man of the Quran? That means a lot.

00:14:29--> 00:14:47

Do you see brothers and sisters what we are trying to do here? We want to build momentum, we want to sell the product right? We want to realize the virtue of what we are doing and that there cannot be a gathering on the face of the earth that is greater than this one unless there is a gathering like it where the book of Allah is being studied.

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

And this takes us to the Hadith that you see in your notes,

00:14:53--> 00:14:56

where the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

as Muslim the rates on your authority of Abaco

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

Are you right this is Bucha right? This is good news. And I know for a fact that many of you if not all of you are feeling the meanings of this hadith at this very second in time.

00:15:12--> 00:15:30

Where the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, merger tamao tomography bait in minbar yo tilde yet Luna Kitab Allahu wa Tada rasuna who female but you know in earnest Allah Tala you him was checking in at work or she at home or Rama or at home will mela eco was ACARA hula hula FIM Ananda Lucha.

00:15:32--> 00:15:54

He said whenever there is a people who gather in one of the houses of Allah have we ticked that box? I think we have condition number two, as they recite the book of Allah are we taking that box? We hope we are conditioned number three and mutually studying it between them we will be doing this inshallah. What will Allah do for them?

00:15:55--> 00:15:57

The promise is that

00:15:59--> 00:16:19

Sakina tranquility will fall upon them. Don't you feel it? Is this the same as listening to a lecture on YouTube mp3? It's not the same. This is a virtual exclusive to the house of Allah. According to this narration Sakina will come down upon them tranquillity it feels as if all of the troubles of your life have been lifted at least for this hour.

00:16:20--> 00:16:21

What else happens?

00:16:23--> 00:16:33

Rama envelops them Rama covers them mercy of Allah. If the Mercy of Allah touches you, dear brother, the sister you have nothing to worry about in this life or the hereafter.

00:16:34--> 00:16:36

What else happens this is promise number three.

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

The angels will cover them.

00:16:41--> 00:17:11

And as for reward number four, Allah subhanho wa Donna will make mention of them with those who are with him. This is the greatest of the four hola gender Janelle who speaks of you so Ansel, son of so and so is in Darwin, etc. At this hour, reciting my book and studying with his brothers and sisters. You know what it means when the king Allah agenda Jallianwala Jabbar, Julius, Cromwell, Aziz, and Buddha Allah, Allah, make mention of my Petit name, your name,

00:17:12--> 00:17:30

it means that this is a study that is dear to Allah subhanho wa taala. What are the conditions, they gather in one of the houses of Allah reciting the book of Allah and mutually studying it between them. So this will not be a lecture and you will see more of this Insha Allah, Allah in the coming weeks, we will study the book of Allah together.

00:17:32--> 00:17:39

And therefore the brother, the Sister, please make this a habit and bring the theme of that hadith that you are reading to your home.

00:17:41--> 00:18:00

It is not allowed. And this is not from a filthy perspective. It is not conceivable that a Muslim who has a household with a wife or a husband, siblings, who have access to the book of Allah, and they don't have the weekly also circle around the book of Allah, you don't need to be a scholar to do that. Who said,

00:18:01--> 00:18:38

bring a book from the books of the scholars that have been translated into your local language. If it is English, take the Tafseer of shaker Sadie as an example, or others that are reliable, study together, read from the book together, take a page each that you read, and then open up the floor to pool ideas or suggestions allow the children if they are there to be involved. And watch how Sakina comes down upon that family notion of Allah comes down upon that family, and the angels will be inside of that home. And Allah will make mention of you, it cannot be that you complain, dear sister of your husband, or your wife, dear brother.

00:18:40--> 00:18:45

And you see, there are certain ingredients that are missing in my family, I can't proceed in this relationship, what's missing.

00:18:47--> 00:18:50

He says there's no Secunia in my family, there is no tranquility.

00:18:51--> 00:18:55

And I feel that there is no rush, no mercy in the household whatsoever.

00:18:56--> 00:19:03

And I feel as if the angels have left our house many times, many years ago, and Shavon is living with us instead.

00:19:06--> 00:19:30

And then you have the likes of this hadith that you haven't implemented, where Sakina will come back and Rama will come back and the angels will come back. It's inconceivable that you take your problems as a married couple, to a Sharia Council of some sort or to Mr Morrow student of knowledge. And you haven't even tried this not from a trial and error perspective, but from a reality perspective because it is the Promise of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:19:32--> 00:19:37

And as for the students of knowledge, dear brothers and sisters amongst you, no matter how busy you may be,

00:19:38--> 00:19:59

whether it is a masjid that you are running, whether it is a halacha that you are running, whether it is an eyesore that you are cheering or any other position, it does not make sense that you do not choose select people from your community who you love and are dear to your heart. They may be just three of them. They may be just 10 of them. And you gather around the book of Allah, no matter how busy you are.

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

You are the shape of Sheikh Al Islam and you are the biggest imam in the whole of Wales, you really have to have a circle of prayer

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

that you commit to on a weekly basis also

00:20:13--> 00:20:16

be it a private dabs or a public that's like this.

00:20:18--> 00:20:30

So these are some of the introductions that I wanted to share with you with regards to the study of the book of Allah, why we have chosen the book of Allah. Now we want to speak about why we have chosen about Surah two we have chosen Surah Kahf

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

chapter 50 of the Quran.

00:20:35--> 00:20:36

Surah Kahf

00:20:38--> 00:20:43

is a very powerful Surah that has the ability perhaps single handedly

00:20:44--> 00:20:46

to soften the toughest of hearts

00:20:48--> 00:20:53

and to humble the most arrogant of human beings. This is the nature of Surah off.

00:20:55--> 00:21:03

And when you read the narrations regarding how the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam approached the sower

00:21:04--> 00:21:09

and the type of relationship that he had with it, it becomes blindingly obvious and clear

00:21:10--> 00:21:18

that he took every opportunity where Muslims were assembling like this, to recite upon them Surah Kahf.

00:21:19--> 00:21:29

Clearly, therefore, there are secrets within the surah that the messenger sallallahu alayhi. wasallam wanted to convey with as many human beings as much as humanly possible,

00:21:30--> 00:21:40

the contents of the surah he wanted to share with everyone, how we come. These are some of the questions that we would like we would like to answer.

00:21:42--> 00:22:03

Consider the narration which must have narrated on the authority of Amara Amara will hubbub he asked the companion Have you acted in LHV abbiati. The lazy he said to him, what was it that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite during the Salah, the prayer of radon filter and Adel attack our two prayers that we do in aid morning, what would he resigned

00:22:05--> 00:22:16

and I'm walking in and he he said to him, he would recite graph, while Quran Majeed and walk Tara but he said to my coma, he would recite Surah to cough

00:22:17--> 00:22:31

in one of those two units, and he would recite Surah two comma chapter of the moon in the other unit. A quick footnote here dear brothers and sisters, I think it's very interesting that he has an alias and I chose these two chapters to recycle morning.

00:22:32--> 00:22:50

I mean, Surah to cover the moon it's dealing with the nations of the past, people have had and the mood and signage and meridian and loot. And how Allah Jalla Jalla Hussain sent them reminders and prophets and books they rejected to Allah took them away.

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

He would recite that on aid morning.

00:22:55--> 00:23:16

And in another unit he would recite Surah Kahf, the theme of which is entirely the hereafter death. Allah is watching the conversation we should have with the angels on the Day of Judgment, the conversation between us and our shaitan paradise and how the whole surah he chose the soul to introduce hate morning.

00:23:18--> 00:23:50

And so perhaps I don't know what you think but it seems to be quite an obvious message that the Muslim on a day although he and she is happy and excited we've just come out a season of worship or Ramadan or Hajj we are happy with the forgiveness of Allah. We are sharing food and we're not fasting and we're not in pilgrimage today. And we are eating and we are drinking and it family and friends your Allah aid is a beautiful vibe. But at the same token the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will choose these chapters to begin the day of aid almost as if he is saying

00:23:52--> 00:24:00

don't allow the day to be the beginning of the undoing of the thread that you had been spinning all throughout the year. All throughout that month.

00:24:02--> 00:24:20

It's a day of worship a season of worship but remember you are to lower your gaze remember so now needs to be prayed remember that correct Islamic clothing remember that remember, remember the fact that he would choose these two so on and so we see from this narration in front of you that the messenger so I sent them made an effort to recite Surah Kahf and his son

00:24:23--> 00:24:29

imam or Muslim also narrates on the authority of the companion Jabiru. But to summarize,

00:24:30--> 00:24:43

the he narrated in Namibia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Kanaya Cracovia Salah to sub havia ca one Quran and Majeed he narrated that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite Surah Kahf in his treasure morning prayer.

00:24:44--> 00:25:00

You know when you wake up in the morning, dear brothers and sisters you usually say or do the very first thing that was bothering you right when you wake up. What is the first thing you say? It's usually a reflection of what was bothering you, right? That night. He would wake up and be praying at night. The very

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

The first prayer he would do in congregation was cough. Well, Quran Majeed speaking about the hereafter. Subhanallah it was a frequent Surah that he would choose.

00:25:11--> 00:25:40

On top of this imam or Muslim the rates on your authority of a female companion, whose home was very close to the home of the Prophet said Eliasson, her name is Omar he Shan daughter of habitat in Oman, almost a sham she said something very profound. And listen to this, your brothers and sisters and for those of you who attended Friday Sermon would realize that you're about to hear and discover a very neglected sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:25:42--> 00:25:53

or a sham. She said, Nah, happy to cough. A lamb in Fiji Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sent them to be her Kula Dumas.

00:25:54--> 00:26:03

She said, I memorized Surah Kahf from beginning to end, directly from the mouth of the prophets rice and took it directly from him.

00:26:04--> 00:26:45

Because he used to recite it so frequently during the Friday Sermons. Some whose Friday Sermons brothers and sisters was just a pure recitation of stuff from beginning to end. Who has ever done that on a Friday sermon. Have you ever seen that before? I've seen it maybe once or twice in my life in other countries as well. Not even here. May Allah forgive us for falling short. Hee, hee hee salatu salam would recited so much that this woman Omo, he Xiang, and other women as well, by the way, who narrated the same thing, they said, we memorize the surah by virtue of just how much He repeated it on the Friday, the contents of the surah he wanted it out, he wanted it out. Allahu

00:26:45--> 00:26:50

Akbar reformational properties on another level, this is this is surah. Two.

00:26:52--> 00:26:55

Let us take a look. Brothers and sisters and the name of sort of Cough.

00:26:57--> 00:27:03

Cough, it's called cough. What is cough? What does it mean? By the way, I mean what is in reference to

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

what is off brothers sisters,

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

it is a

00:27:11--> 00:27:17

half meaning a letter right? It's a letter. So Surah cough has its name derived

00:27:18--> 00:27:50

from the very first letter in a number one cough Allah acid cough pathway. Imagine starting a book with QRTQ. It will be strange, right? We will discuss that in a minute. But first of all realize that its name was derived from the very first letter in the first area bath. And this is the 21st letter of the Arabic or Arabic alphabet. And it's alleged that we don't have the equivalent of it in the English language, and requires a degree of imitation in order to pronounce it.

00:27:52--> 00:27:56

And perhaps one of the secrets by the surah was given the name calf,

00:27:57--> 00:28:36

not just because the first letter is off, this is a reason. But also you will realize that it is one of the most frequently repeated letters in the entire surah. And coffee itself is a powerful letter. By the way, we shall speak about that in the coming weeks. And the content of the solar is powerful. So it seems very natural and organic to choose a powerful network just begin a surah. That is by his nature, very powerful cough Allah says in almost every area of the surah every verse there is usually the letter cloth that appears in one word or the other. Carla Sakala alkyl boo, Al Quran, Al Haq.

00:28:37--> 00:28:45

All of these words, have the letter carved inside of it with regards to the period of Revelation, when would the surah revealed.

00:28:46--> 00:28:53

We don't have any authentic narrations to give us an exact date as per when the surah was given to the messenger SallAllahu sallam.

00:28:55--> 00:28:58

But what we do know is that the surah was delivered

00:28:59--> 00:28:59

in Makkah,

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

it was given to him along his route was salam in the first part of his Dawa. As you know, his life his biography can be divided into two distinct phases, the phase of natca, where it started, which demonstrates 13 years of his life. And then you have the phase in Medina, which denotes the next final 10 years of his life. And even in Mecca the first part of his mission, it can be divided in several phases, let's say maybe three phases, an early phase, middle phase and a late phase in Mecca before he emigrated.

00:29:32--> 00:29:34

And what seems to be

00:29:35--> 00:29:45

correct is that Surah Kahf was revealed more so in the early parts of Maccha. But not so much the earliest part. How come?

00:29:47--> 00:29:53

Does anyone have an answer? Why would we say that sort of craft was revealed in Makkah? Okay, granted,

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

in the early parts of Mecca, alright, but not the earliest parts of my

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Yeah How come anything

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

need to hear something

00:30:09--> 00:30:11

come on yeah let's see if he

00:30:13--> 00:30:13

oh wait

00:30:19--> 00:30:22

yeah okay so Surah two calf is giving descriptions of the Hereafter

00:30:26--> 00:30:41

ah there we are good. So just to elaborate on obedience obeyed, said because it is speaking about the hereafter. So that would explain why it is a Mackey chapter of the Quran, because maquis chapters are usually dealing with the hereafter more so than Medina chapters.

00:30:42--> 00:31:01

But why the early part of May? Not the earliest? Our brother, he said, because it is speaking about the refutations against the doubtful arguments of the pagans. Did you get the answer? Did you understand some elaboration? Essentially what this point is saying is that

00:31:02--> 00:31:34

Surah Kahf is telling us what the pagans were saying against the prophets that I sent them. They doubted this and they said this to you. And they rejected that. And they mocked that. What does that mean? It means his data was well underway. So we cannot say it's the earliest part of Mecca, because sort of life is speaking about their contentions, their arguments that they're raising against him. So there's a given take. It means he's gone public now. It means he's gone to the next phase. And he's giving Dawa publicly and the Quran is supporting him with arguments how to deal with their contentions. Is this clear?

00:31:36--> 00:31:44

So this is roughly when Surah two calf was revealed with regards to the theme of Surah Kahf.

00:31:47--> 00:31:50

The theme of sort of path is entirely the hereafter.

00:31:51--> 00:31:59

Yeah, keep it as simple as that, from the beginning right to the very end to Surah to graph is dealing with the hereafter,

00:32:00--> 00:32:03

whether implicitly or explicitly

00:32:04--> 00:32:18

harrowing scenes, detailed descriptions of what shall happen shortly after a man breeds his last. This is very relevant to the Arabs of Mecca by the way, how come

00:32:19--> 00:32:29

when the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started to teach Islam brothers and sisters, they didn't really have a big problem with the idea of God Allah.

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

As you know, they believed in Allah.

00:32:33--> 00:33:15

Not just that they believed in some of his divine names and attributes. Allah said to Allah is Elta home and Holika Saba it was Elia gonna holla Kahuna, Aziz al Halim, if you say to them who created the heavens and the earth, the pagans will response will respond. They were created by Allah disease the Almighty Allah leave the unknowing. These are attributes of Allah or other names of Allah that have other attributes. They have no problem with that. Some of their issues was that they were setting up partners within law. They found it baffling that the prophets and I sent them wanted to unify worship and make it into one. Jalil Ali Hatta. Illa illa Huwa, hidden in ohada, Alicia, Allah

00:33:15--> 00:33:21

said that they said, Is he trying to make all of the gods one God, indeed, that is something very strange.

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

So this was one issue that they had from the aqidah theology perspective. Another issue they had was that they rejected the resurrection.

00:33:32--> 00:33:35

They found it inconceivable that bones

00:33:36--> 00:34:12

after they deplete, they become scattered dust, that somehow Allah subhanaw taala was going to resurrect the dead, which is obviously a contradiction if you believe in a God who is Isaiah is an ally, and Jabbar and powerful. Why can he not resurrect the dead Surah Kahf deals with that from one perspective. Surah Kahf will show us some of the rational arguments that used against them and you can use when speaking to your friends and neighbors. How the resurrection is perfectly logical. It's perfectly in line with the rationale that God will resurrect the dead.

00:34:13--> 00:34:25

Surakarta dealt with that for one perspective, but saw that car from another perspective and in the same breath was dealing with something else what was it? It was giving a harrowing threat

00:34:26--> 00:34:31

to those who meet Allah, having not believed in the resurrection.

00:34:32--> 00:34:44

That is what the second half of pseudo coffee is about. A terrifying threat and a detailed description of what shall happen to man as his soul begins to Pang at him

00:34:45--> 00:34:49

till he or she arrives at one of the two destinations paradise right.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

So super powerful saying to them, this is how the resurrection can happen. It's perfectly logical. It is not difficult upon me. The only kerajaan the only cash on Eileen

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

ASEAN as as Allah says in surah Kahf this resurrection will be easy for me.

00:35:05--> 00:35:07

But on the other hand, it was giving a threat.

00:35:09--> 00:35:16

It was saying to them whether you believe in it or whether you don't, at the end of the day, it doesn't matter, because you're going to die.

00:35:17--> 00:35:22

And when you die, the videos that had covered your eyes shall be removed.

00:35:24--> 00:35:33

*a Schaffner and Cohiba UK. We have removed from you your obstruction for bizarro Kaleo mahadi Allah said therefore on this day your vision is piercing like iron, you will see.

00:35:35--> 00:35:48

And this is the conversation that's going to take place between you and your Corinne, your companion, who is this current companion we shall find out, this is what you shall say. And this is what your Corinthians shall say, This is what Allah shall say.

00:35:50--> 00:36:09

All the way until the Hellfire is spoken about which is the home of those who reject the resurrection. And then paradise is described which is the home of those who believe and prepare for the resurrection Allah Akbar. So if somebody says to you, dear brother, do you sister What is the theme of surah? Two cough What will you say in one or two words? What will you say?

00:36:11--> 00:36:14

The here after the hereafter?

00:36:16--> 00:36:19

What else do we know about the virtue of surah? Two cough

00:36:22--> 00:36:25

Do you know anything about the virtues of Surah class brothers and sisters?

00:36:26--> 00:36:29

Have you come across a hadith of some sort that speaks of its virtue?

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


00:36:34--> 00:36:35

without looking at your notes

00:36:37--> 00:36:40

but you have you heard of something called Al Mufasa?

00:36:41--> 00:36:43

Put your hand up if you've heard of Al Mufasa

00:36:45--> 00:36:45


00:36:47--> 00:36:47

it should move

00:36:50--> 00:37:02

Are you Ah there you go. Yeah, so brothers says Elmo, first son is in reference to the name of the section of the Quran. From or to, from unto which is from surah Kahf chapter 50 Until what Baqarah

00:37:05--> 00:37:08

until the end of those from calf Surah 50 until

00:37:09--> 00:37:15

the end of the Quran surah NAS pull out the brahmanas Surah 114 That section is called what repeated let me hear it.

00:37:17--> 00:37:36

I'll move us son. It's called Mufasa and the very first surah In this section Cordell Mufasa is according to the majority of scholars it is Surah to cough Surah to cough there are some who said it is 100 the surah just before it chapter 14 majority they seem to say it is this Surah Surah to cough

00:37:38--> 00:37:42

and the reason why it is called L more facile English is moving for solving

00:37:44--> 00:37:49

which is normal for someone asking you so I just flipped Arabic which is amorphous.

00:37:53--> 00:37:56

Okay, because he says because the verses are short.

00:37:57--> 00:37:59

So why is it called a Mufasa?

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

It gives,

00:38:02--> 00:38:03


00:38:04--> 00:38:41

by the scholars, they say the reason why it is called El Mufasa dissection, because of the sheer number of gaps that's called Fussel in Arabic gaps or separations fossils separation between one thing and another. It's called fasten. So this barrier is called the Fussel between the sisters and the brothers. So this section of the Quran is called the amorphous son the separations. Why because there are so many short chapters within it that are separated with Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Smilla Rahmanir Raheem Bismillah R Rahman R, right. So it's called a Mufasa. Because there are so many what separations between it divided we are using Bismillahirrahmanirrahim.

00:38:44--> 00:38:52

And here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something beautiful about this Mufasa it is something that is exclusive to our ummah.

00:38:53--> 00:38:57

Imam Muhammad narrates on your authority of the companion wife, you know,

00:38:58--> 00:39:03

that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, or platoon, I cannot tell what it

00:39:04--> 00:39:05

is about the one

00:39:06--> 00:39:27

one mechanism body and mean why McConnell in G al Madani Wofford bill to Bill Mufasa translation, he said, sallAllahu wasallam in place of the Torah, the Old Testament, Allah has given me the first long seven chapters of the Quran.

00:39:28--> 00:39:40

And in place of the Zaboo war, the Psalms of David, Allah has replaced me with a will mean, meaning the next 11 sewer of the Quran

00:39:42--> 00:39:59

and in place of the Injeel given to Jesus sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah has replaced me with Al Thani, the chapters that are always repeated, which is in reference to the next 20 chapters of the Quran. And then he said, We're bill to Bill Mufasa and Allah

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

has honored me by giving me something that they were not given and that is L Mufasa. Which is chapter 50 until the end of the Quran,

00:40:11--> 00:40:26

Allahu Akbar, and therefore all of the wisdom that is contained within the Torah what was once untampered description from Allah. The Old Testament is found within the first seven chapters of the Quran, the longsword

00:40:27--> 00:40:38

and all of the guidance that you may wonder what was inside the Psalms of David Dawood, salallahu, alayhi wa sallam, Allah replaced this with what the next 11 chapters of the Quran

00:40:40--> 00:40:45

and all of the goodness that was one day in the Injeel given to prophet Isaiah and then he started to A salaam,

00:40:46--> 00:41:05

the goodness of that has been replaced and given to us through the next 20 chapters of the Quran, what remains and Mufasa Allah said or the prophet of allah sallallahu sallam said, and I was given honor over others, through unfasten this is something exclusive to our own Allahu Akbar Alhamdulillah

00:41:07--> 00:41:09

is this clear therefore what a Mufasa knees?

00:41:12--> 00:41:16

Let us proceed brothers and sisters now on dive into the surah How long do we have left?

00:41:18--> 00:41:19

For if not long.

00:41:20--> 00:41:38

Before we start speaking about sort of TAF, we want to start creating some links. In other words, we don't want to study Sudha cough in isolation from the surah. Before it, we want to understand the connection where the surah fits in the grand scheme of the Quran. Okay,

00:41:40--> 00:41:42

so we have a few questions that we would like to ask.

00:41:43--> 00:42:08

Yeah, go to the next slide, please. Document Number, we want to know the links between the beginning of the surah and the end of the surah you will have to do this exercise, by the way, what's the link between the beginning of the surah and the end of the surah don't just look at area one of calf and the last iron, that's part of it, but also roughly the first verses and the concluding verses What's the link?

00:42:09--> 00:42:23

You then want to look at the link between the end of the previous surah the last idea from Surah 300 the surah just before it look at the last idea and connect it with the beginning of Surah Kahf what is the connection?

00:42:24--> 00:43:00

And then number three, I would like you to think about the relationship between the content of Surah Kahf that you have an idea of now and what it's about right? And the content of Surah 200. Right. And I know maybe those who have not studied Surah 400 Maybe a bit of a disadvantage, but there's no harm in you quickly skimming through certain hotel data and making some links are these three questions clear? So spend just five minutes very quickly answering all three of these questions and then I would like to hear from you and shout out to brothers and sisters please do this. Okay, five minutes inshallah. Okay, so let us take a look.

00:43:02--> 00:43:07

Point A, the link between the beginning of the surah and the end of the surah

00:43:09--> 00:43:13

there is like a very obvious link here, isn't it right? Yeah, who's going to be the first

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

the first link between the beginning of the surah and the end of the surah Did you see no link

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

that somebody other than you

00:43:23--> 00:43:24


00:43:25--> 00:43:26

Yeah. What about the Quran?

00:43:34--> 00:43:54

Good. So the very first It begins by speaking about the Quran path one Quran in machi by the Glorious Quran. What is the last idea for that? karabiner Qurani mania halfway remind them through the Quran, who he who fears the threat of Allah, Allahu Akbar.

00:43:56--> 00:44:03

Okay, next one is a little bit more tricky here. Another link between the beginning and the end of cough. Did you make any other links?

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

These are not so obvious.

00:44:08--> 00:44:10

What a man is that your hand up for him?

00:44:13--> 00:44:14

Sleep they wake up

00:44:19--> 00:44:25

good. Okay, so where is the link? What's the link between the end of the first one and

00:44:26--> 00:44:27

the second cup so

00:44:29--> 00:44:37

Okay, good. luck. Bye. So death is mentioned about in the beginning that mentioned in the end okay, good.

00:44:40--> 00:44:43

Excellent, excellent. Tada.

00:44:46--> 00:44:48

Wondering how

00:44:49--> 00:44:51

to get there. Yes.

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

Good. So in the beginning look at your copy this sisters dear brothers, look at your copy of the Quran in the

00:45:00--> 00:45:20

Beginning Allah says Bella Ijebu and yah hoo Monday remain home for Colin carefree Runa hada che on IG but either Mita no Hakuna Taraba Delhi karamba as they said, If we die and we become dust, we're going to be resurrected. That resurrection is very far that's a distant not going to happen it's very difficult to imagine. What is Allah say in the end of the surah?

00:45:22--> 00:45:33

Valley cashloan Halina yo si yo Mata shaft couple urban homestead Radha Lika. Hi Sharon, Elena Yessir. Allah says in the end, when the earth opens up,

00:45:34--> 00:45:48

and they come out, that will be a resurrection that is easy on us. So in the beginning, they are saying it's so far fetched. In the end, Allah said, No, it's very easy for me Allah. Any other links between the beginning and the end system is something from your side.

00:45:51--> 00:46:12

Have you not noticed how the surah Kahf begins with something that they have said called cafiero, the disbelievers said, that is something strange. So So at wakaf begins by speaking about things that the disbelievers have said in the end of the surah What is Allah say? i You

00:46:14--> 00:46:17

Be My guru, we are aware of what they are saying.

00:46:19--> 00:46:23

And what else is Allah say towards the end of the surah? First beer,

00:46:24--> 00:46:51

ah foster Allah nya Kowloon show patients or prophets and I send them towards what they are saying. Beginning is something they are saying in the end Allah say to the Prophet Seisen, don't worry, we know what they are saying Subhan Allah. Okay, so question number two, what is the link between the end of the surah before it so that will hold you right? And the beginning of Surah to cough? Any ideas? Look at the last area, what is the last area

00:46:52--> 00:47:24

I want in Allah? Allah Moo, Viva Marathi. Allah Almighty has knowledge of the unseen of the heavens and the earth. That's the last idea from the surah before it, What's the link between the beginning of Surah Kahf. I want you to see brothers and sisters have the chapters of the Quran, they are married next to one another, they are married with one another. This arrangement of Revelation is miraculous. It's not an accident that Al Fatiha is here and Baqarah is here, that alley and Brian is here then the SAT is here, the night unit is here and I'm here. That's not an excellent

00:47:25--> 00:47:35

there is beautiful links that shows you the harmony in the Quran. But we want to we want to uncover some of that. What is the link between the last eye and the beginning of off?

00:47:37--> 00:47:37

Any ideas?

00:47:39--> 00:47:40

Any ideas?

00:47:43--> 00:47:52

is interesting. Yeah, I actually didn't have that written down. That's very interesting. So the last area of Surah Al Quran speaks about how Allah has knowledge of the unseen of the heavens.

00:47:53--> 00:48:02

And then the very first area from Surah to cough is cough letter by itself cough, what does it mean? Allah knows best? What does it refer to?

00:48:03--> 00:48:24

Allah knows best. We should speak about that. That's a beautiful link right? Take note of that. What else in the beginning of Surah, Allah also mentioned that I link them down coastal aluminium, we have knowledge of what the earth is diminishing from them. When you die, your body begins to disintegrate. Allah says we have knowledge of what the earth is taking from your body.

00:48:25--> 00:48:34

And therefore Allah Almighty because he has knowledge of the unseen of the heavens and the earth, he has knowledge of what the earth is taking away from you. Yes, clear.

00:48:37--> 00:48:46

But you the last question I wanted to share with you is this. What is the link between the content of Surah Klaff and the content of surah Taha Girard

00:48:47--> 00:49:12

some brothers and sisters who are studying Surah 200 On Mondays because if I so can I recommend you brothers and sisters to go to these classes? Yeah, brothers who are delivering weekly sessions on surah Taha Girard, similar to what we are doing here, I really recommend you go if you can go. So I'm looking at us specifically brothers and sisters. What is the link between the content of the surah before in the content of this? Any ideas? Oh?

00:49:15--> 00:49:16

Come on guys.

00:49:19--> 00:49:21

Allah Okay, I have to pick someone.

00:49:22--> 00:49:23

Dammit. What's the answer?

00:49:25--> 00:49:27

Not your Jahangir. What's the answer?

00:49:34--> 00:49:35


00:49:38--> 00:49:57

speech Good. Did you hear that sisters? Yeah. So he said that in Surah, todo Durand. It is speaking a lot about sing or tongue based sins. Speech based sins. Certainly majority is largely talking about sins that happen through words.

00:49:59--> 00:49:59


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

For example, in the beginning of Surah fungerar Allah speaks about led to a demo by Anya de la hora. Sorry, don't put before Allah and His Messenger don't speak don't raise your voices over them as well.

00:50:11--> 00:50:17

Speech based. If a facet comes to you with news, verify it, speech base.

00:50:18--> 00:50:25

Those Arab bedouins who are calling the prophets that I sent him when he was still in his house, calling him out in a very kind of rough way.

00:50:26--> 00:50:47

Speech based the Arab Edwin's who were praising themselves saying we are believers, we are believers. We have reached this very high level of Eman. Allah said no, you're still Muslims. Not believers yet. Speech based mockery, right, ridiculing each other name calling all of that is mentioned in direct speech based and then you look at Surah Kahf. What is it dealing with?

00:50:49--> 00:50:59

It's dealing with sins that were committed using speech what the pagans were saying, we don't believe in the resurrection. And that is why in Surah Kahf What is Allah say? Marielle Philo

00:51:00--> 00:51:10

min komlin illa Allah de la Cubana it there is no speech that you utter, except that there is a watcher and Angel ready to take it down.

00:51:12--> 00:51:14

Speech Do you see that link?

00:51:15--> 00:51:16

There is another link

00:51:17--> 00:51:22

that NACA or Sora to cough we said is a Mackie based Supra

00:51:23--> 00:51:39

00:51:41--> 00:52:08

and you know, that societies, Muslim societies will usually resolve will usually resemble this type of society or that type of society. If it's the Muslims are going through an era of flourishing and supremacy and sovereignty on the land. We can compare that Muslim civilization with Medina. If they are going through a time where they have no voice, they have no authority. They're being bashed about by everyone, we can compare them to

00:52:09--> 00:52:19

the MK conveys, and therefore if you want to know how to establish, establish a Muslim civilization, when you're still weak, you could sort of cough and its likes.

00:52:21--> 00:52:36

If you want to know how to establish a Muslim civilization when you are strong, you can store up to 100 a great Solar Thermal Generator. By the way, you can also take note of this surah Taha gerat is largely focusing on how to establish the Ideal Muslim society.

00:52:38--> 00:52:52

Did you get this point surah Taha Gerard is not focusing largely on how to establish the Ideal Muslim society. And what is the fundamental building block of a Muslim society? What is it?

00:52:54--> 00:52:55

What is it?

00:52:58--> 00:52:59

What about belief? Don't hate Iman, the fundamental building block of a Muslim societies Iman belief, what is Surah two half dealing with

00:53:11--> 00:53:12


00:53:13--> 00:53:21

Surah 300 How to establish a society the surah after it the fundamental building block and that is in the hereafter. That's what it is dealing with Allahu Akbar.

00:53:22--> 00:53:34

00:53:35--> 00:53:38

surah to the whole Gerard is focusing largely

00:53:39--> 00:53:42

on sins that were committed in haste.

00:53:43--> 00:54:02

So that we're not just talking about patience, and that all of the sins, it lists and prohibits us from doing their actions that were the result of haste, being in a rush. So Allah said in the beginning is an example don't put before Allah and His Messenger, that's about hasty Don't be hasty and speak before them.

00:54:03--> 00:54:08

Those who are calling out the prophets, Allah said and before he came out, that's an element of what?

00:54:09--> 00:54:10


00:54:11--> 00:54:16

00:54:17--> 00:54:19

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

The whole issue that they had in rejecting the hereafter was what? Not an intellectual argument. It was. Haste Allahu Akbar. So you see brothers and sisters you know the the harmony of the book of Allah.
