Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam, wa salam ala Gambia and masala Nabina Muhammad in Wada. He was
a Salaam Alia Kumar who lived there, his brothers and sisters, This is lesson number seven now the study of certainty are seen.
And we're in the middle of a story. There's one story inside sort DRC known as a story of the people of the of the city of harbor Korea. And we've got to the part where what's happened is a lie sent two messages to these people for Kenza boohooman, but they belied both of those messages allow reinforce the call with a third messenger. And these three messages come into conflict with the rest of the city, the people becoming aggressive towards them. And we finished on a note of a heated discussion that was taking place between the messengers and the people is escalating. Yeah, this is how the story is continued that it is escalating is getting more serious now, the people are
becoming more aggressive, more arrogant, more obnoxious towards the messengers. And the last thing we heard is that the messengers
in the face of the rejection of the people and being called liars, and being told that a lies and giving them anything whatsoever, they said, a lot, Boehner Alamo in LA comme la morcilla. They said, Our Master, he knows that we are to you lamos alone, truly people that have been sent, which is the second time they say that, which shows us that they stuck to their they stuck to their principles. They didn't change their message. They didn't falter. They said you know what, even if you deny us, we're still going to stand for this message. We have been given a mission boundless primary dial. However, there was one subtle difference. And that was a second and they said it. They said with
more emphasis. They said in a local law, most of the Lamb of Turkey. And that lamb of Turkey on level saloon. It captures the heat of the argument. Yeah, and it's on that note that we finished last time. The next thing they say is well, Marlena Malone will be.
Has anyone heard this? This these words being said elsewhere? No, hold on before? Well, Marlene Bella will be our duties only to click give clear transmissions or give a clear message comes many times in the Koran visited? Well, now, in the Bulava lobbying. We are all responsible for clear transmission. What does that mean?
Even matava irrational law he explains it to mean that this is an expression of
trust in Allah that these messengers were saying to the people. Listen, we've come here we've given you them.
message that we were sent with. If you accept it, you will be, you will be given good fortune. Yeah, you will be targeted with benefit. And if you don't accept it, then you know what we've done our duty and allow will take care of this message. That is how we explain the meaning of this verse, which is an expression basically, I'm trusting a lot. You know what? We're going to do our job.
And it's up to you, you accept it is good for you. If you don't you know what we've done what he's supposed to do. A law is in charge of the outcome. A law is in charge of the success of this message, not us. Yeah. So it's very beautiful verse. However, if you look closely, there are a number of things we can learn. They described, they are down by saying it was Belov and will be Yeah. As for the first word Belov, it comes to root with a Bella which means to reach something, something reaches something balilla she something has reached something else. And then from Bella, you get the word Balala never heard this word before. Bella, when you're studying Arabic. And you
will come across as Oh, yeah. Bulaga. What is Bulava? This is a very difficult word to translate. But essentially what it means is to take normal speech, and to make it more impactful. Yeah, that's why some of the translations will allow eloquence or rhetoric, what does that mean? It just means that you're taking normal speech, and you're making it more compelling and impactful to the people. Yeah. So they said, the first we have to do is you have to make our call. mela
make it effective. So it reaches the hearts of people. Yeah, that's the first thing we have to do. And that call has a second quality is low, it is mubin. And mobian, comes from a root of abana abana, Rosie says means to separate something. In this context, it means to be able to separate and distinguish between truth and falsehood. Good and bad, right and wrong. Yeah. So it's very interesting. We put those two things together, what did they mean? It means that Firstly, when they came, they started to, they started to call them to Islam. And the way they did that is number one, the way they spoke and call them was by using speech, which was very
touching, very moving, very captivating. That's how we reach these people's hearts. However, the second quality of that message is that when they spoke, it was very clear to the listener, this is right, this is wrong. Yeah. Now I understand what you are saying. And what that means, basically, is that part of the quality of the speech is that it was emotionally moving.
And the second part is that it was intellectually moving. Does that make sense? When you say you make something clear to him right and wrong. What you're saying is that you managed to intellectually convince someone that actually this is the way to look at something now.
I was looking at wrong now I can look at it correct. However, the problem with human beings is that, you know, sometimes there's no good enough. Yeah, you can tell me explain things to me in a nice way. But you know what? It didn't really move me. You know, I really feel what you meant, to him said I'm saying. So they said we did both the way we spoke to them, move them. And the what we said had substance. They appreciate that because sometimes you find
out the both are missing. It's that one speech, or one is then one is missing. Yeah. So I'll give you an example. Even today's parlor cameras example, you find many people are able to give powerful speeches. But if you listen carefully,
there's nothing being said whatsoever. There's no substance to what they're saying. Right? For example, across the pond in America where the presidential candidates Yeah, he huge crowd massive conferences, fiery speeches. Yeah. But what's been said anything new, anything original? Not really. Yeah. If you go to, you know, some of these evangelical Christian channels I've ever come across those by accident.
And this one is very close to some of the chapters, right? So you skip to them. And like I remember, there's there's one.
amazed. How do people watch this? Right? This is a guy, this Nigerian preacher, and he's standing there, he's bouncing up and though he's talking Islam, very, like, it wasn't just about the laws, the law of zeal, okay? He's really passionate about what he's saying. And then there's two people flanking him the law, amen, amen. Amen.
Like, really gene came up and everyone's like the people pulling in, although you said they were so fantastic. Yeah, make a brief we make a brief for me. So you're thinking and then Okay, let me listen to what he's actually saying.
I'm gonna mean he's talking rubbish. There's nothing good coming out of his mouth whatsoever. You cannot even understand it as a coherent message. It's just words that are being said in a very emotional way. And people are getting fired up by it. Right. And people can find, you know, if you go to some of the places, some of the churches, especially evangelical type, they are massive crowds. You'll be amazed. Wembley Stadium packed up by some of the preachers Yeah, how? Because, you know, this speech has a lot of balance. It is quite powerful. It emotionally charges, people, but there's no more been in there was a there's no substance. There's no intellectual stimulation.
However, sometimes you find the person he has no balau but he's moving. Yeah. What does that mean? Someone, he knows his stuff. Okay. And he explained things to you. But the way he explains them, His voice is so monotone, no expressions on his face. He doesn't lift his voice doesn't lower. People are having the best sleep of their life isn't happening sometimes. You go to someone, you know, some of the holdup maybe most of the hotel. Yeah. On Juma people are sleeping even before he began.
Even before he opened his mouth last evening. Now obviously it's blameworthy for them. But at the same time, you can appreciate you know, it seems like he's sleeping gas coming out of his mouth. Sometimes it's so boring. Yeah. But if you listen carefully, yeah, he said very good things. In fact, you know, wish I would have taken notes that day, basically. So sometimes someone has this someone time someone has that the messages of a loss of power that they're both at the highest possible level. Yeah, who am Eileen lol Bella Hornby, which makes the whole thing even more beautiful, because it means we're not just trusting in a lot to make things happen. We're going to
do our best. And the best means trying to convince people emotionally as well as intellectually. And that is how someone becomes a great daddy. Yeah, that he's able to, you know, emotionally charged people. And you know, it's part of the processor. And they said that, okay, I mentioned that when he was standing on the member, his face would change color. And the tone of his voice would change such that the people thought he was summoning them to a council of war. Yeah, this is war. That's how we speak like, you know, that emotion, his face will change colors, pollen in one region. He had this he had this deep vein that used to go across his forehead. And sometimes it would just bowed
slightly, you know, someone becomes angry. Maybe sometimes that becomes angry with you think oh, no, he's really angry. And we look at his face, you can see the vein right there. It's like that they could see his face palette change color. He was passionate about what you're saying? Yeah. And he was able to, he was able to captivate his audience upon Allah. So this is our processor. And a person needs to work on both of these things. If they want to be successful, successful then, okay, now this is something else is where we learn, we learn about the character of the messengers, because if people are being rude to you, calling you liars, saying that, you know, you come here,
you're just imposters, you know, you come in, and you're just lying to us, we don't believe what you're saying they become aggressive towards you, then usually the reaction is people become, you know, rude to one another, right? They start to insult one another. However, the prophets of Allah, they didn't do that. They said, You know what, wherever you say, we're gonna stick to our message. We're not going to start insulting you back. We're not gonna stop being obnoxious and rude to you about the various people attending because it's difficult to be like this right?
And any, is human nature to try and, you know, give as good as you can basically, you know, this whole human nature, isn't it? But you know, as one of the ways it was said, Now,
you know, respond, never have a saying about the foolish person.
don't reply to a foolish person who's got more experience.
don't reply to a foolish person who's got more experience. And if you lower yourself to the fools level, you lose, because he's got more experience than you.
Good thing, isn't it? Yeah, this is it and you don't know yourself. They didn't know themselves to the level of insulting and hurling abuse at them. Rather, they maintain their dignity and the character that is expressing of their character. Another thing which shows us is that this links back to the first passage in sort of the US in the beginning, a lot told us about the process of them that in the current level of mursaleen, you are from those that have been sent. Now our story is given about those have been sent before him.
And look at the character the character is upright and straight just like we said you were allowed serrata mR cream you work upon you are upon a straight path meaning your character is upright You are a straight arrow and then we are given an example about prophets who illustrated
that thing or LA soprano with our
Okay. What did the people say? In response to the messages? words they said the following follow in your victim. They said we see an evil Omen in us very interesting is first law in London.
London dromana kumala center convener other Aleem, if you do not stop, we will stone you. And we will make you suffer a painful punishment at our hands.
It's quite serious now, isn't it? Now they've gone to threatening them, giving them death threats. Look how it began, though. Before they issued a death threat. They engaged in what we called propaganda. Yeah, when they said in now Popeye, you're now become a poverty said it means we see an evil Omen in you. Yeah, we see an evil Omen in you. And there's also a state a saying of one of the early Muslims that what that meant to be mentioned, is that there was a drought in this city, which lasted for three years. Yeah, good to be said that McCarthy, McCarthy said that they experienced the drought for three years. So you know, with no rain, you know, there's no pastures the animals are
going to be dying malnutrition, so on and so forth. People are suffering. Economically speaking, they're suffering. They're, they're what we call a depression, isn't it? And they're going through depression. And so what they said is that, you know, that drought, you know, the suffering we're going through as a nation. That's because of you guys, is because you Muslims came to our country, that our economy began to suffer in Popeye, your nebia. And even what the pyre it comes from the root of pile, which is bird. Yeah. And the connection is that, you know, the ancient people they would
they would be superstitious, this or flight of birds this way, they say, is a good sign. It is so flat. But that isn't always a bad sign. Even in today's times we have these superstitious things, isn't it? What do they call them? Bad luck, isn't it? What what kind of examples of bad luck either today?
Break tomorrow? Yeah.
Don't step one.
Oh, don't step on.
Your back brakes.
So people have these superstitious things, beliefs, even in our time, it's not something historically exclusive to you know, people of the past, rather than something present now time. So they said, although in that for your navcom, we see your presence to be a source of misfortune for our society. That's what they said to them. There's only three of them.
Now, what did the message is that will come later, actually, after?
You know, why did they say that? This is very interesting to ask, why did they say that?
Because first of all, this is not a response to the message. ie it's not an intellectual response to rejecting the message of Islamism, or an intellectual response will be I can't accept the message of Islam because it doesn't make sense for XYZ reason. Yeah, isn't it there'll be intellectual response. But you say, instead of that, saying, you know what, you people, man, you're causing the rain to stop.
You people you're causing our country to suffer from depression. You people are bad luck.
That's not intellectual responses. So already, they're admitting defeat. When you're unable to articulate an intellectual response and you have to resort to insulting or superstitious ideas, then you already admitted defeat.
But there's something else you see.
when you call when you curse people, and you say you people are bad luck to us. What that does is it creates a climate of fear in the country, isn't it? Those people man, the responsible so many bad things happening to us and Did you hear what happened? Because of them as well? Yeah. Just like the old narrative on immigrants in this country, you know, pre Brexit, what was it but immigrants? Well, they caused all sorts of problems. You know, there was an interview on Sky News is, this is this is white lady, young white lady. You know, she's
To launch an adult, right? And they like, So, what do you think's gonna happen after the Brexit? She goes, Well, we all going to get jobs back. You know, energies can be really good. and blah, blah. So the guy goes, so What job? Are you going to get back? Because it never worked before?
What is going on here? Why do people believe that for because of the hysteria that was created regarding immigrants, right? In the same way we find hysteria being created about the mystic community, isn't it?
It is in America. One of the speakers remember he said
that I'll go into a lift, right? And this American family, not most Americans have gone to lift as well. When they got on the lift. They turned around, he came in after them.
They went silent, right? So they hadn't pressed the button.
So obviously, when you go into a live band, right, so he pressed the button, and he said, Where are you guys going? To decide if? Because what number do you want to go on? Just look down on the floor. So basically, what happened is, he pressed the button for like the fourth floor, but he then pressed the button for the first floor just went up one, and then you go out lift. And he said, You know what, they will just do this, right? Just because I had a bit like they will find this good for their lives, and two kids and two adults, and they were just so afraid again today for the Muslim. Why? Because of the propaganda. Yeah. Are you in Natasha, you have now become is equivalent to
propaganda now that the real interesting thing is, why is there a need for propaganda?
The reason is, look at what they say and explain them. tanto if you don't stop this law now juman nakane we are going to we are going to pass a law that says that you people can be stoned to death.
That's what they're saying. So what we what we what we see is that they needed to make the people feel as though we can abuse this minority. And the way we can do that is by making them fear them. Once we make them fearful of them, we can do every one.
And this is not something exclusive to the story. If you listen if you if you read the story of Mossad is known for on their own using the same tactics. Yeah, Allah says verse number 127 pardon mela will mean calm if you're on a tether musawah Palma hooli you see do fill up the Chiefs all around, they said Are we going to are you going to leave Moosa and his people to cause corruption on the land? Why Baraka were early, hands up, and they are going to make people abandon you for around as well as the ages. All of a sudden, oh, cut to Havana, then he said, we are going to kill all of their sons.
Now the policy to slow to their sons came after the propaganda about moose and his people. Do you see that?
Yeah. And you know, this is exactly what's happening today. Regarding the Muslim community. There is so much propaganda, creating fear and then what happens? You see laws being passed in Parliament. Yeah. which happened to be targeting Muslims.
Okay, so this is some of the analysis of this verse. And
second thing they say, Well, I am a sinner caminada en la, so if stoning you to death wasn't bad enough, however, I've got to be said there's another meaningful stoning here. He said it could possibly mean to abuse we're going to abuse or we're going to or Yes, he said we're going to abuse curse and revile you if you don't stop this. Yeah, that could be one possibility for lonardo Monica, we are going to stone you however, in the Quran. He also said the words are not German now. Origin only ever refer to killing? Nothing less than that. However, in this verse, it seems it may be the case that they're not talking about killing, they're talking about abusing, because the second
punishment they say is what while I am a sinner caminada you will experience from us a very painful punishment, meaning we're going to torture you. We're going to torture you. Yeah. Now one of the interesting things about the way they said that is the word Amina while I am ascend acoem, Minh alum, we are going to
punish you severely, and our punishment is going to come from no one other than us. We're going to do with our own house. Now, what does that tell us? You know, sometimes somebody wants to
do something bad to someone else they call the Hitman right? A 10,000 pound gun. Take this guy.
Or if you're the government, you know, he can get Blackboard and vote, you get a secret.
What do they call them?
Not soldiers. What do they call? mercenaries? Yes, mercenaries get the most reason vote. And they go and do the dirty work. We don't want to get our hands dirty with this. But they said no, we're going to do with our own hands. Why did they say that?
What does that tell us about them?
They're willing to do the dirty work themselves with their own hands. What that tells us is that they have a little hatred in them,
isn't it? That they want to do this stuff with their own hands, it shows us they had deep seated hatred for these messengers of Allah Subhana Allah, imagine, this is the level that things have reached.
Now, what did the Prophet say? They said in response to them all by the kumarakom. They said,
the boy, this thought eurocom means this evil Omen miracle it is with you. What does that mean?
He said, it means that you're good and bad fortunes in life. They are around your own neck.
Meaning whatever good and bad happens to you in your life? It is because of you. Not because of us. Yeah. Which is interesting, because they didn't say you are saying when evil omen. You know what, you're an evil omen. They didn't say that. They said to them, you know, you guys, you are your bad luck. They didn't turn around and say, you know, your bad luck. Right? They said that bad luck? If is there is because of you. Yeah. So you put that in the context of what could be said? He's saying that the brain stopping and you experiencing a recession and a drought, that misfortune is because of you, and because of your bad behavior with a loss of panadol. Yeah. And that's a very important
point for us as well to reflect on our own lives that when misfortunes come our way, bad things happen to us, we should ask us. So is this happening? Because I did something wrong? Yeah. And that had these are five, where the person goes to life, and he is rejected by those people. And by the way, mishap said that he stayed there for 10 days trying to go those people. It wasn't just a one day event, he went there. And he spent 10 days in the beginning as a tribal leader to accept his message. And if they were gonna accept it, they're not to punish. But they rejected him. And then he went, and he asked the people to accept Islam, but they reject as well. And then upon the sender,
the sender, the scum of the society to stone him. Yeah, as he left five, he left bloodied. In that state, he left and he was in a state of shock, because he said himself, I showed the law that I didn't realize where I was until I reached one courtyard. And they, I sat down, and it was there that he made this powerful door now the door itself. Many of the schools had he said the door isn't God hasn't got an authentic chain operation. However, one of the scholars, a contemporary, he said, If anyone reads that two hour, they know this is not a fabrication. These words could only have been sent by the processor. Amazing, isn't it? The analysis there? And part of that? Is him telling
saying to Allah subhanaw taala that?
Is this out of your anger towards me? If it is not, then I'm happy.
I'm happy. But if you could make it easier for me, I would be even more happy. Yeah. Now why did he say that? He said that because he was teaching us a lesson. Sometimes bad things happen to us because we do bad things. Yeah, when we sin when any other Billa male figures for our sins, sometimes it can trigger a calamity to come our way. If that happens, then you know what, blame yourself. Don't blame other people. And also ask for forgiveness from Allah. Because the only way that calamity will stop is if you ask Allah to forgive you. Yeah, this is very interesting lesson that we can learn. And also, there's a verse in sort of that Iran which is teaching us the same
thing, less than 165 in our demand. Allah says Allah sabates Kumasi but to call the Sava to miscellania Colton, Edna Heather in the Battle of offered the Muslims they suffered some 70 people lost their lives in the battle word. And then what happened is after this, after the battle, some people asked a very strange question. Allah says Allah Azza welcome isn't the case, that when you were struck with a masiva a calamity, or that are subject to miscellanea that also came of a similar
Level two those before meaning in the Battle of battle your enemy suffered the same. Do you then say call to another? Do you say How did this happen? Like how did this happen to us? How did we end up suffering like this? Allah said Cole who I mean and the unfussy come say that is from your own self.
And we know it the battle but the battle often rather, a mistake was made by some of the Muslim isn't it when the person told him to stay on the hill? Some of them they departed in fact most of them departed and they listen to the commander processor them and then after that some fled is well the battle Allah saying you suffered Why? Because of your own your own issues. Yeah. So this is a lesson we learn from this then after telling them that you know what all this misfortune is coming because of your own bad deeds. They said I don't care too and to get to means as opposed to be said is the case that every time we remind you about Islam and call you to this beautiful religion that
you say Tata you're gonna become that you say your occurs to us your evil Omen your bad luck? Is that your response to us? How could you speak to us in that way, but until common Muslim phone rang rather you are a nation that is doing is wrong.
Now why did they call them a nation that does is wrong? Surely they should have called them a nation that does Kufa or a nation that belies or a nation that you know, is mostly Doom is doing corruption on the earth? What they say you are people that do is rough.
I'll give you a tip the word is thrown off, it means to go
go beyond the bounds. Yeah, go over cross the line you know and say you cross the line. Yeah, is to cross a line here and put the bee said Elisa moja. Was had it is to go beyond the limit. So why do you say you people are going beyond the limits? Here? People are crossing the line? Yes.
Okay. So, you know, it's the truth, but you know, accepting it
is true, however,
is okay. So that accepting was added. But the thing is, if someone calls you to Islam, and you know, as a truth, you can say, Thanks, but no, thanks.
Oh, you could go one step further and say, No, it's not true. Even dynasty
or you go one step further and say You're lying. We'll go a step further and say, You know what, I'm gonna kill you, man.
Yeah. So do you see why they call them well, anthem palmistry phone? They they could you kind of just you know, said, you know, we're not going to accept it as industry. But you escalated things this level you took things so far. But anthem common mystery phone you're doing is wrong. You're going way over the limit set. Yeah. And that is why they said in the case, I every time we remind you, you come to this behavior, you know, and this behavior, it is uncalled for. It is going way over the limits here, but until the problem is reformed, there's a few lessons we learned. Okay. The first lesson will we learn is disbelief and arrogance are linked. This belief and arrogance are
linked. What does that mean? It means that
people who are Catholic people who are disbelievers, though there are many shapes.
The reason why they don't believe all boils down to arrogance. And this is the way the Quran speaks about gopher, who is the worst coffee?
Yeah, those are george bush.
Who's the worst coffee?
Yes, at least.
Very interesting that nearly every time he releases mentioned his keyboard as mentioned as well, sort of Baccarat. Allah Spanner says that when the ages were told to bow down
for surgery, the melodica in the I believe
westech bar, what can I mean then? carefully. Yeah. Allah said When the angels I mean, imagine he believes he enjoyed the company of angels. Once upon a time he was that pious. Imagine he was that pious he used to be with angels, even though he's from the gym kind, according to many scholars. Then when he was told about down to Adam Islam, and again, here, it seems as though there's a difference of opinion. Did the angels bow down to a law out of
reverence to him for creating Adam, or did they actually bow down to Adam? Because a lot older than two? There's a difference between the two? Yeah. Well, ah, let me see you as those two first, that they bow down to the bow down to a law. Yeah. In order to celebrate his creation of animalism Yeah.
As we know, prostration to other non law is submitted. Yeah, except the one that's done out of respect. Yeah, and that is why some scholars go for the second opinion, which is that they actually bow down to Adam. Regardless he believes was then in the company of angels unless if all of the angels frustrated, one man standing,
who is that a police
and Allah said was stuck up and he had given, you know, a stackable a means to seek greatness. And I saw the pattern of his stuff Allah and it's defined as the meaning of to seek something. What was he seeking
to become big? Alas, it was stack cabana What can I mean? Okay, and he was from those who were the calf ears, the disbelievers Yeah, so if
if a police here is a careful, and Allah always refers to his kibble, what is Allah telling us that you should associate this belief with Horovitz? Yeah, and it's all different forms different levels rather, some people have a little bit of something more but is it is that's why it boils down to and you know what this is even if you don't do that to people some accepts some don't some people they're very close to yeah if you ask them why why don't you Why don't you go ahead and accept Islam usually it's like you know things to do with you know about you know, I enjoy my sausages everything you know and gentlemen
the pub and drink this that and the other enjoy Friday nights and all that stuff, you know, I've got to become Muslim I'm about to pack that stuff up and no, I'm ready to do that right now. Right so okay. submitting to allow or the pub
which one is going to be if a person choose this one over that what does that mean? It means that they arrogant meaning Why should I have to sacrifice these for God? What is the accepted arrogance a mirage isn't it there's always an arrogance that they This is the first and the second lesson is arrogance makes you dumb. Yeah. How do we drive this? Well look at the argument of the people get some messengers they didn't respond in any intellectual way they said you guys are just bad luck Okay, it's a very strong argument they were bad luck anything else? No, we're gonna stone you Wow.
As heavyweight stuff you know coming back why this is because arrogance blinds people to the truth they are they willing to say anything do anything in order to reject the truth isn't it which sometimes makes them dumb and there's a very good story about this in the Quran about a very rich man who becomes very dumb you know what this person is?
are on okay, but this man is is like a Super King
for all is another example. But Allah told us that this person end up looking very dumb.
Excellent. Who said that?
assets name rude. The last one the same sort of Baccarat lm tunnel either lady had a bra Hema fear of be an attack or long more. Listen to this. Pamela. Allah said, Have you seen the one who was arguing Ibrahim of all people about who Allah? I don't think God exists. What? Are you serious? Allah say, Have you seen that person? You know him. And a downloadable book. Allah gave him tremendous kingdom. You know, you know when you hear a rich man, describe the property of another rich man. He says, You know what? That guy's seriously rich? Is he really rich lady? You know what rich is? Right? Yeah, he's really rich. Yeah, that guy's seriously rich. The weight of his words is
heavy, isn't it? Imagine what Allah says that man has serious money. So Panama. He was out of serious go here and adult long. Alcala said we gave in Kingdom ought to be said that the reason why Allah told us that is to show us the reason he's arguing about God.
The reason he's saying I don't believe in God, it because of money.
My money, my wealth, my power has deluded me. That is why I'm asking. Is there really a god?
What a connection, then what happened ever, ever Islam made him look stupid.
By giving him a powerful argument. He says, okay,
you're the man. But you know what? Allah subhanaw taala. He can do some amazing things. First of all, he can bring the dead back to life, meaning resurrection, he can cause people to die and bring them back to life. The king said, You know what? I can do that as prisoners come up one of the death row. Lamb go free. The one who's gonna escape tomorrow, kill him.
See, the guy is not responsible arguing because whoever Islam is saying is that he
can take the souls from people's body, not kill people. Anyone can kill people. Do you see? So even his response? It wasn't a valid argument. Now listen to this, if I even Islam doesn't, doesn't validate his argument. Yeah, by not by responding to him, he just continued to say okay, and another thing about allies he brings us on from the east and makes us in the West. Why don't you go ahead and bring it up from the west. Now here, think about it. The King could have said, You know what, you're wrong. I bring out from the east, isn't it? But Allah said for Buthelezi Kapha the mob route is a one who is flabbergasted. last four words, unable to say anything in response for botella de
Kapha. Allah says he was dumbfounded, left, you know, this jewel wide open. Oh my god, what am I gonna say to that? How do you even took a picture of him? Hashtag Dumbo?
Isn't it that's how you would refer to him. That's how the Quran says was his ending.
Why? Because he was arrogant.
He was arrogant. And he was dumb because this is the Quran is Panama. last lesson he shows us is that not much has changed. Anyone is listening this carefully was like, You know what, nothing has changed man, the same tools used by the enemies of Islam to try and silence the Muslims and the corners of Islam the same things and this is very important. Knowing this is going to benefit you because power. So knowledge is power. And ignorance is weakness. Once you know certain things, empowers you. Because when you see the same things, it doesn't shock you. You know some people become so shocked they start to go into this conspiracy theory mode. Everything's a conspiracy
theory. Now one of my teachers he loves to put people down that are super on the super
this conspiracy theory tip right so he says that even my teeth, my toothpaste, the kuffar after me through my toothpaste or some chemicals, you know, makes me miss masala. Like, how far you can take this conspiracy that you have Viviani you just going crazy by the conspiracy who did 911 the whole life is spent, I want to find out who did not live in Hawaii, there's a man from arniston he said he did it. He said he did.
End of story, you know. So knowing these things, when you see these evil things happening and being orchestrated. And you read about them in the Quran, the person doesn't, you know, become bewildered by them. He says, you know, Allah told us, this happened before. And the reason he told us is because it's going to happen in the future. Now, what do we do about it?
What we do is what the messengers did. When they saw these things happening. They continued the call, they remained calm, and they relied on a law for the outcome. You know what, we should do the same thing.
We should do the same thing. Now this last verse in Sharla is my favorite verse in the Quran. Allah Subhana now says another man enters the story. Another man enters his suit. Who is this man? Allah describes him what jet What up so
the Polo is a mistake that what I mean opposite of Medina geology Louis usara poly Palminteri or gosens, Panama. Then, from the furthest part of the city, a man came running. He said, My people follow the messages.
Listen to this, Allah says, One man comes. This man is a believer. Where did he come from? He came from the furthest part of the city on the outskirts. How did he come? He came running, not walking. He came running. Thirdly, what did he say? People? My people follow the messages here meaning I believe in them, but you should follow them. Listen to what they're saying. Don't behave in this way. Don't behave in this way towards them. Now there's so much we can learn from this first of all, ask yourself why is it that Allah subhanaw taala number one didn't tell us his name. You know all of the scores of the see they say this man's name was heavy and ajar. Heavy. The Carpenter all of the
mentioned in October you mentioned that you mentioned nicotine and all of the mentioned it. However Allah He didn't say Habib came he said
not even a Rajan. You know the man. I don't even Allah smile didn't even make him mad if he made Nikita A man came some banking
Why did Alice Pilar choose not to tell us the identity of this man? Instead call him a man. Question number one. Question number two, what is the significance of telling us that he came from the furthest part of the city? Why tell us his location? How What does that do? What does that tell us? Thirdly, he came running What does that teach us?
So what do you think my brothers? You tell me? What do we learn from these things? First of all, is to take one one by one Why call him a man?
But why not call him by his name is maybe for us
to actually work
very good Mashallah. The brother said, because if certain details were given, like his name, everyone become fascinated. Oh, let's find out about this man. Where does he live? Is he still alive?
Yeah, so we may miss the point of the whole verse. Very good. What else at the at the back.
You don't have to be a scholar to
Allah say Mashallah.
Mashallah, this is beautiful. Mashallah. Very good. Ali, how these are
13 this Mashallah, he said that by telling us he was a man allows teaching us You don't need to be a scholar to give down
totally, to be a scholar to give that and you have to really appreciate that when because why is he coming to
he is coming to a place where the greatest orlimar are living,
isn't it, you don't get a greater item than a profit.
Three of them are there.
And despite the greater number being there, the man says to himself, you know, I need to go and I've told those people to accept that message I need to go and reach out to them.
So it shows us this Another point that you don't need to be a scholar to make a difference in the world and to do something valuable in the sight of Allah soprano. Very good point. What else?
Any other reasons? We're just quoting my man.
Okay, what about the second question about where you came from? Why is this location important? He came from the furthest part of the city is
Okay to show the borders we're trying to say? Yes. Asif.
Okay, interesting. So the outskirts baby the poor part, even if that's the case, what's the point?
Okay, so your honor is in line with your social status. Possibly but haven't come across this that because you live in the outskirts? It means you might have been a poor person. Yes.
Marshall lots of articles. Yes. This is another very, very good listen that.
him coming from all the way outside of the city shows his love for his people. He wanted good for them. And you know what? I'm prepared to go from one side of the city to the other side.
And he else
he's not messenger. Yeah, he's just a man.
Okay. He's not from the messengers. Definitely. Yeah.
Okay, okay. Very good. So, the fact that he says my people follow the messages shows us that he has got something that was not given to the messengers. The messages were foreign.
The man was a native. He was from the people. Yeah, that is how you could say my people. Listen to the messengers. You know, sometimes that helps because if you come from outside and start to preach, people will say, What are you doing here? Coming up to our country, telling us how to live in our country. We don't do that. Okay. So why don't you go back to it
where you came from? There's nothing to say. What do you go back to where you came from? If you want Sharia so bad
and then we will say
he said the world belongs to Allah.
Okay, what else do we learn?
What about the fact that you came running
important importance to
the importance that they need to know.
Okay, the Senate gives us shows a sense of urgency at Wells.
Okay, very good. You could show that it's a state of emergency basically, you know, the looks like they're going to they said they're going to threaten to kill them. It looks like this might actually happen.
Okay, again, emergency you know, things are turning really bad now escalating, it could be that a lot of punishment is going to come I need to do something last year.
Okay, similar to what about the saying that these things are spiraling out of control, he's going to try and do something to stop it.
I have written down 10 lessons just from this one verse. Some of you have said them already, I'm just going to raise the bar in Sharla. The first lesson is, his name is not mentioned. And instead he is referred to as a man why to teach us that is not who we are, but what we do in life that counts
by not telling us his name.
Instead, bikes illustrating what he did, we are being taught is about what you do in life, not who you are,
what your background is, what your social status is, so on and so forth. Second isn't concealing his name, even though he is known to be happy, and the job and he said calling him a man illustrates what it means to be a real man standing up for what's right, even if it means putting yourself in harm's way. That was he mentioned this, he said this shows a ruler, you know, manly what this word means to be a real man. That's why I called him Amanda.
Number three, concealing his name also suggests that this man was sincere and didn't want to be known for what he did or didn't wasn't doing it for fame or popularity. Number four, also, by calling him a man sends a message that just because you're not a scholar of Islam, it doesn't mean you can't make a difference in the world and do something valuable in the eyes of Allah. Number five, telling us that he came from the furthest part of the city demonstrates commitment to the faith and readiness to struggle for the sake of Allah. It also shows us that he was a man who used his initiative, and didn't wait for others to tell him what to do. Number six, highlighting his
location as being far away from the location of the messengers speaks volumes about how effective they are. That will was it reached to the furthest part of the city where one man became a Muslim? Number seven, by informing us that one man from the outskirts believed may indicate that people who live in the rural parts may have softer hearts, and are more spiritual than people who live in the inner city. And this is something that people will travel can attest to. Sometimes our village people they live amongst nature. So they the disposition is different to people who live in the middle of the city. Number eight, Allah told us the man came running over in haste. This
demonstrates his zeal and passion for promoting the truth. It also shows us he cared a lot about the welfare of his people. Number nine, when he finally reached the town center and stood in front of his people, he told them to follow the messages. This demonstrates that though he had faith and was passionate, he knew which Lane was his and he stayed in that lane. You know, a person needs to know appreciate any the level
and the level of other people. Sometimes people we know they get our business and then they lose track of it or do they say pajamas a particular guy.
Just say before person has jumped out of his pajamas meaning and he is doing something which he shouldn't be doing is not qualified. You just know your position. Yeah. He had the man had passion. But when he reached the scene, he said, You know what, this is where I stopped and they begin say it who mostly now you follow the messages. Lastly,
no tell the story began about Mrs. Coming to the podium. Whereas here are the same things we refer to as Medina. The story began in Jerusalem. What do you belong to
give them the example the people of the Korean hair Allah said a man came from the furthest part of what Medina
was the desert in the Korean Medina is the same place some of the scholars said the Medina is even bigger than a Korea so the reason why I use the word Medina is illustrate just how far he came from he came from so far it's like he was living on the outskirts of Medina and if that is the case allows drawing our attention to that the distance he traveled he teaches us another lesson that we should not make excuses can our lives
you know if he had an excuse if anyone else use it would have been him he could have said okay the situation is really bad but you know what if the messengers can't do this for me I'm gonna do yeah or you could have said you know what is happening all the way over the head um, although it surely someone closer can do something isn't it? Isn't that the mentality some people have you know, when you see something happening bad you're far away and other people are close to you like you know, hopefully one of them saw something or you know, he's like, I'm all the way on the other side. I'm gonna make it happen. Yeah. which teaches us how we should not make excuses for ourselves. Milan,
