salat wa salam wa salli Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi

00:01:29 --> 00:01:54

wa salam aleikum, wa barakato brothers and sisters, Allah, Allah bless you all, and reward you for taking the time to study the book of Allah subhanaw taala you ask Allah to make it beneficial for us to make we study a source of long lasting benefit for for us yeah, many people today they like to study Islam but in a slightly romantic way. What do I mean by that

00:01:55 --> 00:02:45

people like to get short term benefits and Eman boost as they call it. Though there's nothing wrong in that when that becomes the only reason why you study Islam or when you go to a lecturer circle or talk is just to get the sweetness of a man that becomes a problem. Why because what happens to that high obviously of a man after a day or two, what winds down what is left nothing and you end up back in the same position that you were before what a Muslim needs his education, impactful education that develops him so that he becomes a better person and in long term his closest ally always increases Yeah, person's character develops a person's worship becomes stronger and when he reflects

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

over his life

00:02:46 --> 00:03:06

to another Ramadan he sees that you know what? Last Ramadan? I never used to go to prefer that in the masjid. Yeah, this Ramadan I see that this year I managed to go to the machine for many more times in last year in fact a Monday is Monday and a Thursday

00:03:08 --> 00:03:22

a few times and the previous year I never used to do that. And this year I managed to speak to a neighbor of mine about Islam and for many years I was avoiding doing something like that then you know that you know what i have developed in my

00:03:24 --> 00:03:37

in my email in a substantial long lasting way this is what we should look for those kind of markers in our life. So May Allah make this study also Dr. Seen a source of that type of Goddess was on inshallah, I mean, your anatomy.

00:03:39 --> 00:03:40

Okay, let's see here.

00:03:47 --> 00:03:51

Okay, brothers and sisters, we have reached Now verse number 66. And

00:03:53 --> 00:04:07

there's a few verses left for this last second last section of the surah. This is the fifth section of sort of the our scene. And we said that this fifth section is about what does anyone remember what this section is? primarily about is

00:04:11 --> 00:04:12

you thought you ever done

00:04:14 --> 00:04:14


00:04:17 --> 00:04:23

about other day resurrection? True, but in terms of the whole sort of your scene, how does it fit? Yes.

00:04:25 --> 00:04:55

The blind and the dead just very good. So yes, he is leading up to this section. By presenting the evidence is first part of Satya seen welcome al Hakim in the arena, Allah salatu salam is a direct message about the teachings of Islam, such as the oneness of Allah, the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam the reality of the Day of Judgment, then, so DRC would deliver the same message but through a historical account, as how will Korea

00:04:56 --> 00:05:00

and thereafter it will deliver this

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

same message again from another way, which is by reflecting over the signs of nature around you, the signs in food, the signs in transportation, so on and so forth, we cover those verses. Now after presenting the message in such a diverse set of ways, what is left to say to the people that still reject nothing except voting. And this is where this section comes in. It is a warning if you're not going to listen to all of the different ways that Allah is explaining and advising you that what is left is for you to be warned about what will happen to you after you die. And that is why this passage started with the words way Appu no matter how you saw the train, tell us what is this

00:05:44 --> 00:06:29

promise going to come true if you are being truthful? is all about telling those people weld your fate on your map job is going to be a disaster. When you wake up from those graves, you will cry out to Yahweh in Atlanta. How terrible is this fate that has met me and then you'll be told what to do or you are moody moon separate yourselves out from the rest of the people because you are going to go to the Hellfire is slowly oma be welcome to the karoon go and roast inside that file because of what you used to disbelieve. Yeah. So that passage is now drawing to an end. And thereafter you will have the final passage of sort of jazzy passage number six and passage number six, what we'll see is

00:06:29 --> 00:06:51

almost like a review of the whole of GRC. It starts with the words were there alumna who Hsiao de la, spell love this verse. Allah says we never taught him poetry. And nor does it fit him in Hua Illa for the crew of Moby It is nothing but

00:06:52 --> 00:06:57

a reminder. And a clear push up the hardest sort of asking begin.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:01

Yes, well,

00:07:03 --> 00:07:47

yeah, it began by talking about how the Quran is miraculous in terms of his wisdom. And that's points towards the fact that this man is nothing but a prophet. And so the acid is ending in the same manner, once again, revisiting the Koran, and describing it and saying, because of its nature, this man cannot be making up lies. Yeah, so that last person will be like a review of the whole so just be interesting inshallah when we get to it, but before we do, we have a few verses left of section number five. So in this verse, Allah says, while Odisha la Palmer's Allah, Allah him festival salata and you will soon if we wish, we could put out the eyes, then, though they may,

00:07:47 --> 00:07:51

though they might race for the path, how would they see

00:07:52 --> 00:08:17

the previous verses were speaking about how on the Day of Judgment, the hands of the disbelievers will speak and confess to the sins that they used to do with them. Because when they are being questioned, and the angels are saying, this person used to do such and such, on such and such a day, he went such and such place that he did so and so forth, the person will start to say, No, he was a liar.

00:08:18 --> 00:08:42

In response, Allah nothing more Allah will seal their bounds, what to call the Buddha at him. And they had to speak to Allah and tell Allah exactly what they used to do. Yeah. Now that was about do judgment. This verse Now comes directly afterwards. And Allah says, well, Odisha if we wanted la pauvres, Allah,

00:08:43 --> 00:08:47

we could have done Thomas to the eyes.

00:08:48 --> 00:08:59

Now this is speaking about what could happen to them. Now in this world, whereas the previous verses speaking about the future, the day of judgment,

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

what is the connection? They said that the connection is a light is threatening them about what will happen to them in the future, your hands will begin to speak, you'll be told to go out into the fire and somebody who's listening they think to themselves, well, that's going to happen to the future, as we say, or do you know we'll see what happens basically,

00:09:21 --> 00:09:50

Allah Allah says, whoa, something may happen to you right now. In fact, while I would I shall if we wanted, we could do the following along which is two things. The first thing is Lapa Messner, Allah UD him we could block out their eyes. Yeah, block out their eyes. The word bombers are very interesting. In Arabic, there's a number of different words for a blind person that he will know what words in the Quran I used to speak about blind people. Yes.

00:09:52 --> 00:09:56

So, yes, someone Bookman or Oh yeah.

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

armbian is talking about

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

The armor armor is the blind person yeah like and sort of Barbosa is the blind man cane. Anyone know another word of the Quran? That refers to a blind person

00:10:15 --> 00:10:17

give you a clue is a silencer

00:10:19 --> 00:10:23

when he said I said I was mentioned this word is used to describe something to do with him

00:10:29 --> 00:10:31

What are some of the miracles that a citizen could do?

00:10:33 --> 00:10:36

Yes, he could cure the blind so what are the words used?

00:10:38 --> 00:10:39

To bury old

00:10:40 --> 00:10:44

achma to bury will occur? Yes.

00:10:45 --> 00:11:04

The UK baja is another word for the blind. What's the difference between an arbor and a coma? They said the difference is the armor is a person who becomes blind like during old age. As for the alcohol is a man who was born blind.

00:11:05 --> 00:11:11

Now there's another word to use here. Which is Thomas to blind Yeah.

00:11:12 --> 00:11:17

In fact before I tell you this word there's another word used in the birth process and refer to the job

00:11:19 --> 00:11:25

what person call him in Arabic what is what is that the job call we're speaking about his eyes he's

00:11:26 --> 00:11:28

here he's blind in one eye.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:30

Anyone know that before? That?

00:11:32 --> 00:11:42

Is our our a lot of people translate out what is one ICT that's not really accurate because our just mean one It means blind in one eye.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:50

The difference is, you know, when people try to draw the gel, the drama with the one eye and the middle of his head, there was all the junk.

00:11:53 --> 00:12:15

It's mostly photoshopped anyway, but that's not our problem is describing a man who will have two eye sockets. But one eye is blind. Okay described like a floating rate, meaning it looks deformed. And the other eye is the one he can see with. So now we have three words we have our ma our and UCLA.

00:12:17 --> 00:12:40

This this one now, what I want to show love Thomas Thomas. Thomas is when somebody somebody's eyes are blotted out here so ignore it. So what that means is when the skin around the eye socket, it closes up over the eye.

00:12:42 --> 00:12:45

So you can no longer see the eyeballs themselves.

00:12:47 --> 00:12:55

Allah said, If I wanted I could do that to you right now. Make the skin around your eyes grow and cover up your eyes.

00:12:58 --> 00:13:18

But however, there is one extra thing here, the word laptop, laptop Master, Allah argued him the word Allah is used. Whereas in the Quran, sort of the same word is used without Allah. Allah says what all I do who are outlays de la palma. snur you know who?

00:13:19 --> 00:14:03

Yeah, Allah says we know that people will loot When the angels came in the form of mentary but it will Islam will area the villa they try to seduce those men try to flirt with them. Yeah. And so Allah says when they did that, we blinded the eyes plus is Thomas thomasnet. Are you know, however here Allah said nopcommerce law Allah Allah uni him Can you hear the word Allah extra day? Yeah, the difference is that this one is more generally speaking, if there's an increase in wording, there's an increasing meaning. You can write that down as a principal there is an extra word or even an extra letter in the product means this extra meaning. So what is the extra meaning that they said

00:14:03 --> 00:14:34

the extra meaning is the odd doesn't need to cover up the ISOC is a means to gouge out the eyeballs and then cover up the eye sockets, law in the law. Can you imagine a person like that? His eyes are taken out of the sockets and then they are covered up with skin. That is why the verse ends for under you will zero for under means how in the world. Does that mean how it means how in the world you will sit or will they see

00:14:35 --> 00:14:51

you don't even have eyes and on top of your eyes sockets there is a layer of skin. How in the world will they be able to see it is a very shocking this and it is a very scary threat of a lot while odesza if we wanted we could do that to you.

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

This this these these words are interpreted in two ways. The first is what they call physical

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

punishment, the second interpretation is a spiritual punishment. Now, who can tell me what do you how they explained the spiritual punishment, the physical one is literally happens to the like you see a person

00:15:16 --> 00:15:26

is not fully functioning eyes, something happens and by way of divine command, the sockets become closed up and he has no eyeballs left.

00:15:27 --> 00:15:30

He is blinded in the worst possible way.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:35

The second interpretation is a spiritual one who can explain to you why this

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


00:15:43 --> 00:15:46

anyone else going on? So, those are going to be answered.

00:15:48 --> 00:15:49

Very good. This has

00:15:51 --> 00:16:11

occurred to me our bus it means a literal punishment. Yeah, however, according to Qatada, one of the senior tourbillion and others they said no, it means a spiritual punishment meaning a lie saying if I wanted I could spiritually blind you, you'll never be able to see the truth ever again. Yeah, meaning then you're lost forever.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:54

Then the next part of the verse is interpreted according to that. The next part is festival setup. And so they will race on the Surat now go to the second interpretation, it means that they may try to find guidance on South Mississippi at some point in their lives further up the road, but they can't see so they're never going to find the guidance. However, according to the first interpretation, it means wherever road they try to go down literal road, they will never be able to find their way. Because they are they have been disfigured and blinded in such a horrific manner. And you will soon see how in the world would they see? So this is the this is a threat by Allah

00:16:54 --> 00:16:56

subhanaw taala. However,

00:16:57 --> 00:17:02

the world's biggest one our Nasha which means if we wished we could have done it.

00:17:03 --> 00:17:04

Who is Allah referring to?

00:17:06 --> 00:17:10

Who is the first people that a lot of threatening here? Who is it?

00:17:12 --> 00:17:23

The punish, yeah. Did this happen to the parish is ever reported the Sierra this happened to the parish that this happened to one of them or many of them is not reported?

00:17:24 --> 00:17:26

Then what purpose does the Versa?

00:17:28 --> 00:17:36

If someone said Allah said, If I wanted, I could have, but it didn't happen. What purpose does the verse serve that?

00:17:37 --> 00:17:38


00:17:45 --> 00:17:48

Okay, but the worst thing if I wanted I could do right now.

00:17:49 --> 00:17:52

But historically speaking, it didn't happen. So how do we understand

00:17:59 --> 00:18:03

the laws? mercy? Okay. Yeah.

00:18:05 --> 00:18:06

It's a threat. Yeah. But you know,

00:18:07 --> 00:18:11

a threat by seemed like it was empty. Nothing happened.

00:18:13 --> 00:18:14

You sorry,

00:18:19 --> 00:18:21

Bob, but that's the other interpretation. Is it?

00:18:26 --> 00:18:29

The fact that it hasn't happened yet? Yeah.

00:18:35 --> 00:18:44

Okay, very good. So it's open ended. It's not just about the operation could happen to anyone. And so it's a threat that goes to any arrogant disbelief out there. Yes.

00:18:49 --> 00:18:58

Okay, very good. This is what Abdullah said as well, that perhaps it reflects the mercy of a lot that it says if someone saying if I wanted, I could.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:38

And in reality, if the person doesn't, it means they are giving you an opportunity. You know, it could happen any moment. So the person they get, okay, it hasn't happened yet, which means I've got another chance. I've got another chance. However, there is another way of looking at it as well, which is what they call is to the Raj, Allah subhanaw taala. If you punish them like this in such a horrific, open way, of course, the people will say, what's happened to you? This must be from God, what have you been doing? And perhaps the person will change. However, if it doesn't happen, the person is left in the state of delusion. So they continue on that path, and they are met with a far

00:19:38 --> 00:19:39

worse punishment after they die.

00:19:40 --> 00:19:59

Yeah, if they actually said another implication could be made here, which is that it's also a message to the believers, that look, Allah is telling you that he could deal with your enemies, whatever he wants in the most horrific manner. Therefore, continue to have patience in the face of those challenges.

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

Continue to be steadfast if I wanted. I could deal with them right now. Yeah, this sends a message of reassurance to the believers close father knows best.

00:20:11 --> 00:20:33

From the two opinions which one is more correct to say? Is it about a physical punishment or a spiritual punishment? It seems as though the physical punishment is more of a correct interpretation. Why? Because the next verse speaks about what louder shall lead Masada, who Allah karate if I wanted, I could do but at must means to

00:20:35 --> 00:21:19

physically deformed someone such that they can no longer move. And that is a physical punishment. And it is part of the same conversation as this verse. So therefore, it makes more sense to say this was speaking about physical punishment. And the second was speaking about another form of physical punishment to do with the legs. Yeah, almost mother knows best. But this is just thinking about it like this, which one of the two is stronger? By the way, poverty chose the physical punishment as the more correct of the two opinions as well. The next verse while older show lemma Sokka who Miranda Macavity feminists stopbar, Li Yo, what are your jerilyn? ad? If we wanted? We could deform

00:21:19 --> 00:21:48

them in the very places famous star movie. Yeah. And so they will not have the ability to walk away. While I urge you all to return. A second threat is issued. And that is if we want to we could do busks to something in Arabic The musi. Yeah, or the lessee? Sorry. refers to an ugly person. Yeah, ugly person is cool. Let's see, don't use that to solve it.

00:21:50 --> 00:21:58

So the idea is not just about deforming. It's about making someone turn into an ugly state.

00:21:59 --> 00:22:36

A second meaning to the word bus is to make something lifeless, something had life and elevate it into something inanimate, something that is don't like it anymore. Allah said that we could do this to them in the very places that they are right now, whether they are at work, whether they are on a journey, or whether they are at home. I could do that to them, but it would happen exactly where they are. And when that happens, first of all, they will not have the ability to do moody. Moody means to get up and walk on the journey while I on the road means to return.

00:22:38 --> 00:22:43

Yeah. Now here's something interesting about what was he said? He asked the question

00:22:45 --> 00:22:47

What is the need to do

00:22:48 --> 00:22:49

physically deformed someone

00:22:50 --> 00:22:54

when they are already blind, and they cannot see where they need to go?

00:22:56 --> 00:23:09

What do you think of us and we will blind them in the most horrific way. That law said we could deform you in a way that you will not be able to move your feet 30 more days to go forward or backwards.

00:23:10 --> 00:23:19

So he said What is the need to add? You could deform you when you're already blind and you cannot see which way you're going.

00:23:21 --> 00:23:21

What do you think?

00:23:24 --> 00:23:25

You really want to

00:23:26 --> 00:23:27


00:23:36 --> 00:23:37


00:23:44 --> 00:23:50

Okay, it's more damning. a blind person could still move. Yeah.

00:23:51 --> 00:23:56

And then if he's deformed paylocity cannot even do that. Anything else?

00:23:59 --> 00:23:59


00:24:06 --> 00:24:20

It comes together. Yeah. The other person is mutated. And the result is they couldn't move anymore. Yeah, so not only do they, they appearance becomes ugly and deformed. But as a consequence, they can't move anymore as well.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:22


00:24:33 --> 00:24:34


00:24:37 --> 00:24:59

spell now. Okay. So if this was addressed to an arrogant person, then you know what arrogant people are like even when they get knocked down. They are stubborn. So get up again to get knocked down once again. Yeah. So it's a more intense threat that you will not be able to overcome by punishment. It will be so it will reduce you down to nothing

00:25:01 --> 00:25:42

Therefore, surrender yourself to me and stop being arrogant towards me if I want to, I could do something which will be absolutely horrendous. Or rosy. He said that the reason why this has mentioned after blindness is because he said a blind man, though he cannot see his direction, he can use his other senses, which is touch his hearing, as a person can find his way around using those other senses. So unless father went further and said, well, the evil those other senses, I will default them and remove them from you. So you will be a person will completely in a vulnerable desperate state, we are lost are the protectors of such a thing?

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

Well, I would assure labasa, whom Allah I guarantee him famous data and will do whatever your job. He also mentioned, not interesting. But he said, what else want to say they won't be able to go forward, nor will they be able to return? He said, because when you are going somewhere for the first time,

00:26:01 --> 00:26:22

it's a lot more difficult to go there than it is to come back. When you're going there is unknown, you don't know your way, you got to find it. And that always happens. We know when he goes home somewhere for the first time. It seems like it takes you longer than it does to get back. Yeah, because of the fact that you don't know where you're going. There's stress involved. So our last one says they won't be able to do

00:26:23 --> 00:26:49

going somewhere, which is difficult. No other way to do that, which is even easier than that, which is even to return back. So it cuts off all hope whatsoever. that this will be completely crippling. You will not be able to anything, not a difficult thing or not an easy thing, either. The next verse, what do I mean? Who do the kids who feel Hulk and whoever Allah extends his life?

00:26:50 --> 00:26:54

He causes him to regress in his development

00:26:55 --> 00:27:12

and fly archelon will they not use the intellect? Now think about this verse carefully. Allah said what do I bear? Whoever we give a long life to meeting, someone reaches the state to the stages of being an elderly person.

00:27:13 --> 00:27:19

What happens to him do that kiss fulfill help? His development regresses?

00:27:20 --> 00:27:21

How does he regress?

00:27:23 --> 00:27:30

The Althea said regresses number one in terms of his body. And number two, in terms of his mind, think about old people.

00:27:31 --> 00:27:34

They become weak in the body, and they become weak in their mind.

00:27:36 --> 00:27:41

Now, that is something we all know. Allah says FLIR who will then use the intellect.

00:27:42 --> 00:27:44

What is the message here?

00:27:46 --> 00:27:51

Why bring this here? What is the connection with what came before?

00:28:04 --> 00:28:04


00:28:08 --> 00:28:09


00:28:14 --> 00:28:15


00:28:17 --> 00:28:24

This idea of when you get to old age, your your development starts to regress,

00:28:25 --> 00:28:27

is connected to those threats that were issued before?

00:28:29 --> 00:28:35

How? It's not just about act now before it's too late. It's more than that. Definitely.

00:28:37 --> 00:28:39

What does the old age have to do with this conversation? Yep.

00:28:52 --> 00:28:53


00:28:55 --> 00:29:00

Inevitably inevitability of your fate is asserted as the inevitability of your old age.

00:29:04 --> 00:29:05

Anything else?

00:29:06 --> 00:29:45

The key word here is to like kiss. Yeah. Next, this word. What it means is when something is reversed, from a position of high to a position of low, something is Allah becomes us. Well, they say this is lacks something was strong, or high. And then it became low. or low Lee. This is nuts law saying whoever we make reach old age, they start to go backwards in terms of their development, their strength, their mind, their body.

00:29:46 --> 00:29:56

Does that make sense here? Now what does that have to do with the threats about blinding somebody to horrific murder, deforming someone such that they can't move again.

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

You want to say

00:30:02 --> 00:30:05

consistency, consistency, okay, go ahead

00:30:10 --> 00:30:19

is not consistent. By the time they reach old age, they have lost their mind a little bit more and therefore it's difficult for them to go back to a state of quick

00:30:21 --> 00:30:26

That's true. There's no doubt about that. But is it really the answer to this question?

00:30:28 --> 00:30:30

Is it really the answer to this question?

00:30:31 --> 00:30:32

Can I select someone?

00:30:33 --> 00:30:34


00:30:39 --> 00:30:40

I said your name is an

00:30:43 --> 00:30:45

example of showing you

00:30:50 --> 00:30:54

making a week as you grow a week

00:31:00 --> 00:31:03

are real very good. We were

00:31:05 --> 00:31:06

just too humble she

00:31:07 --> 00:31:09

didn't want to show the people are

00:31:12 --> 00:31:46

very good. This is what some of the scholars said they said that somebody has God could blind someone, God could mutate someone. Is that really possible? Allah says look at what I do to you when you get to an old age. What happens to you all of your faculties start to regress is that a transformation taking place in front of your very eyes? That may be over a certain period of time? Ultimately speaking, it is regression, it is a transformation it is a disfigurement isn't it?

00:31:48 --> 00:31:51

Save put would say that old age is a second childhood.

00:31:52 --> 00:31:56

Old age is a second childhood meaning that when you become old

00:31:58 --> 00:32:00

is very much like you were when you were a baby.

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

Is that true?

00:32:03 --> 00:32:05

Isn't it how many ways is that true?

00:32:06 --> 00:32:14

Compare babies or infants to old elderly people. How many ways is the parallel?

00:32:17 --> 00:32:19

In almost every sense, Okay, tell me a few of them.

00:32:22 --> 00:32:31

Okay, they become dependent. Just like the baby is dependent on the parents so to do the elderly become dependent on those around them? Yes.

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


00:32:39 --> 00:32:45

it's true that become weaker. Yeah, when you become older, you're your work becomes weaker your body

00:32:47 --> 00:32:50

the body becomes weaker. Anything else that becomes weaker.

00:32:52 --> 00:32:53

The mind becomes weaker.

00:32:54 --> 00:32:55


00:32:56 --> 00:33:00

Memory becomes weaker. How else are they like young young? Yeah.

00:33:12 --> 00:33:14

Yeah, yeah. Again, this is

00:33:16 --> 00:33:35

exactly like this is true, though. Isn't it is Paula they lose control of bodily functions. Yeah, yeah, these farmer you know, what is amazing, is the process of every morning and every evening he will say arrow Lupica beetle castle, was so ill Kiba not cheaper.

00:33:37 --> 00:33:45

Not kibble, Cuba, there's a difference. Cubans pride. Cuba means old age.

00:33:46 --> 00:33:57

He said, I seek refuge in You Allah every morning and every evening from laziness. And from the evil of old age power.

00:33:58 --> 00:34:07

Because it is a battle of dignity. When a person becomes old, and he loses his bodily functions, that is mind and memory.

00:34:08 --> 00:34:36

It is a battle of words dignity, can become dependent on people. And then what is worse, and this is the point to put the brakes. He says though it is your second childhood. And there are many parallels. There's something which is not there. And that is what a child acts stupidly or foolishly. The people smile, and they find that cute. But when you already do that people laugh at you.

00:34:39 --> 00:34:51

People laugh at you. And so he said that when you're young, your weaknesses are baked with love. But when you're old that met with pity. Yeah.

00:34:53 --> 00:34:58

So there's another way in which the elderly are like the young and that is emotionally as well

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


00:35:00 --> 00:35:10

Do you know subtle sense of being a bit mean to them to stop crying? Or they become very angry quickly throw tantrums? Yeah.

00:35:11 --> 00:35:41

They start to, you know, later on the floor, screaming and shouting and kick yourself. So what happens to the elderly as well, emotionally become very volatile? Yeah, all of these things are assigned from Allah. This was a full grown ban, he could take care of himself. And now he has reached this stage in his life where he's lead of other people. If who is doing this, Allah is doing this. They are lucky to do that to about a woman

00:35:42 --> 00:36:32

throughout human history, and for our future. There is a side that Allah could do that in a split second to someone if you wanted to as well. If you wanted to do that a split second. Therefore, why do you doubt by Thrax? Yeah, therefore, why do you buy this? This is the way most scholars correct this verse of the previous verse. However, after our shoot, he says, though, there is another way to correct it. And that is, Allah is saying, it's not that by ability to make people regress in old age demonstrates my ability to punish you in this way if I wanted, rather it is, I am allowing you to reach old age without those punishments, because it is worse for you.

00:36:34 --> 00:36:43

It is worse for you. Had I punished you like that you would have changed your ways. But because I extended your life and let you live without such

00:36:44 --> 00:36:49

drastic punishments, you are going to steep further into sin and disbelief.

00:36:50 --> 00:37:07

Yeah, that will be worse for you. This is how we this is how we are connected together. Well, I mean, doesn't seem to be very strong to be honest. Reason being is because we're not just talking about going into an old age, it is speaking about the ill effects of old age.

00:37:08 --> 00:37:14

Yeah, that is the core message. Look what happens to you when you become old? No, I make you get old.

00:37:16 --> 00:37:18

Anyway, it's just there's something to mention Sharla.

00:37:19 --> 00:37:20


00:37:22 --> 00:37:23


00:37:25 --> 00:37:28

the beginning of the last section of Satya see

00:37:29 --> 00:37:33

a lot of other sides of this verse. Wonder alumna who shall

00:37:35 --> 00:37:47

we did not teach in poetry low? Would it be right for him? Even who are in the crew, upper Adam will be it is nothing but a reminder. And

00:37:49 --> 00:37:54

a clear put on Now, lets us reflect of this verse.

00:37:55 --> 00:38:16

The verse because we're there and I'm never sure we did not teach him poetry. The word ma use for negation is one of the strongest way to negate when you use MLA and the past tense. It means not just a negation, but a correction.

00:38:18 --> 00:38:41

People claimed this warmer beans, despite your claims, it is to the contrary, to get this, had Allah said, lab do I live? Who chef? They would have bet we did not teach in poetry. When I said wha, wha means you claim that we did. But we never taught him poetry.

00:38:42 --> 00:38:50

Do you get that? So there's an element of debate within the map. People claimed it. The thing is about this verse.

00:38:51 --> 00:38:55

Is that it is it lives today.

00:38:56 --> 00:38:57

Work for odd is with us.

00:38:59 --> 00:39:06

And critics of Islam. They are in a dilemma. How do they explain this?

00:39:07 --> 00:39:17

What do they say they cannot accept that it is a revelation from God. But at the same time, they can't reject it exists because it's here. So they need to come with an explanation.

00:39:18 --> 00:39:24

Back in the day, they would say this is the revelation of God it is shared, it is poetry.

00:39:26 --> 00:39:49

Or they would say that it is the words of a bad bad so so forth and today, people come up with other, you know, explanations of the explanations that orientalist gives about Orientalism is that the poor odd OTHER WORDS OF Harvard's philosopher, he authored the Quran, how did he also put on he went about seeking knowledge from

00:39:50 --> 00:39:58

Judeo Christian sources in the Arabian Peninsula beyond what he collected. The stuff will lie he put together anyway

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


00:40:00 --> 00:40:19

Anything but this is the word of God, that is a possibility for them. So they have to come up with different explanations. This verse is addressing one such claim that this is poetry. So a lot begins whether I'm sure we never talk to poetry, whether you're very loud, and it doesn't fit him.

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

Yeah, now applicati, that he explained this very beautifully, by the way, because he is the greatest, but evil historian of Islam.

00:40:31 --> 00:40:37

So if you ever come across a verse of the Quran, to do with Sierra, or history, always read with him because he says,

00:40:39 --> 00:41:07

He said that the words it doesn't fit him mean that it was never part of the nature of the process of them to author poetry. On top of that, he would never obsessed about poetry. On top of that, if he ever did recall someone's poem, he was unable to say it, according to the rhyme and meter it was should have been settled.

00:41:08 --> 00:41:25

Then he said, all of abou of the loop pulling, you know, the grandfather Person of the boot on him, all of his sons and daughters, they were poets, apart from the processor, the only one and he had 10 sons.

00:41:26 --> 00:41:32

He had 10,000 of them was the father, the processor, and then the children, all of them apart except for the person.

00:41:33 --> 00:41:44

And then he the rates to stories were the process that he sees a bad call abas, a tsunami, who's a famous poet in I think, was bucha. Yes.

00:41:45 --> 00:41:46


00:41:47 --> 00:42:01

the person remember the point that our best is still to be made. And when he saw him, he said, You're the man who said that he began to recite that poetry, which is about spreading the spoils of war across two tribes. And Accra, where are you?

00:42:03 --> 00:42:09

Now instead of saying apara, which was the last part of the line? He said, Who are you? What?

00:42:11 --> 00:42:14

So what are the capacities said, you also lie is actually real?

00:42:15 --> 00:42:19

So the person who said, What's the difference? anyway? This is a vague.

00:42:20 --> 00:42:43

Oh, cool, good. So I said it's the same thing. But it's not the same thing. In poetry. You've got to put the word in the right place. Otherwise, the whole thing becomes distorted, isn't it? Yeah, it doesn't rhyme anymore. Or it doesn't fit the right stanza. Say says the same. So there's another story. We abubaker. He's with the processor, and the processor, he starts to

00:42:44 --> 00:42:46

recite a piece of poetry.

00:42:47 --> 00:42:49

And once again, he gets the words mixed up.

00:42:50 --> 00:43:04

He swaps the words around. So Buckaroo says he also was actually the other way around, so that the process is the same thing. Meaning is the meaning is the same. Yeah. So our banker said the key said,

00:43:06 --> 00:43:14

a shadow Rasulullah. He said, I bear witness to God that you are the Messenger of Allah. And then he said,

00:43:17 --> 00:43:23

Leila, just like the law said, we never taught him poetry, and it doesn't fit him.

00:43:24 --> 00:44:16

Yeah, so Paula Jean. Yeah. They said, this is the miracle of God. You try, but you can't do it. Yeah, and from one one aspect, that's a shortcoming. But from a more meaningful aspects that points towards the miraculous nature of the art, for it is poetic. It comes from a man who cannot recite poetry to follow. It's amazing. Li is amazing. And the thing is that about the kurata, poetry, the Quran, though, it is poetic, it doesn't fit any of the, what they call the, the meters of poetry in the Arab language. Arabs have the most poetry they had set, I think there were six or 10 different styles of poetry. If you ever made a poem, it has to fit in one of those. Yeah, it has to otherwise

00:44:16 --> 00:44:17

it's not considered poetry.

00:44:18 --> 00:44:23

Now what the poor outcomes, it doesn't fit any one of them, and yet is poetry.

00:44:25 --> 00:44:29

And yet, it is poetic. So they were bamboozled daddy

00:44:30 --> 00:44:47

issues like another language, but this is our language is poetic, but it is a poems. What is this? And on top of that, the man himself. He can't even recite line of poetry. What is this? It is a cipher of Allah. So Allah said, well, ba love Tao, Xena,

00:44:48 --> 00:44:49

Illa de croo waka.

00:44:52 --> 00:44:55

Before I get to the second part, this one really beautiful point here.

00:44:57 --> 00:44:58

A lot never sent

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

this man

00:45:00 --> 00:45:01

Doesn't know poetry.

00:45:03 --> 00:45:06

Allah said, we never taught him poetry.

00:45:07 --> 00:45:18

What's the difference between saying, This man doesn't know poetry? versus we that are taught in poetry? There is an implied meaning here. What do you think is?

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

It would have been enough to say he doesn't know.

00:45:27 --> 00:45:30

Allah said we'd ever taught him poetry. Yes.

00:45:34 --> 00:45:35


00:45:38 --> 00:45:39

So go

00:45:47 --> 00:45:52

very good, very good. The implied meaning is we never taught in poetry, or we did teach us.

00:45:54 --> 00:46:09

Yeah. And that shows us that you know what the person came with. It was directly coming from a lot of nowhere else. Direct teachings from God to this bad habits, that sort of whatever I love that we share that we didn't teach him that we taught them.

00:46:10 --> 00:46:12

Yeah. And that is why

00:46:13 --> 00:46:17

educated yourself and study the Quran is the best thing you can do with your life.

00:46:18 --> 00:46:43

Because the Quran is the direct teaching of God, direct teaching of Allah. So when you study the Quran, you are studying the teaching of Allah from Allah. Yeah, the teaching of Allah from Allah, that Allah clarifies What is this, that he speaks of it who are in the the word in an Illa when they come together, it brings the meaning of nothing but

00:46:45 --> 00:46:54

Illa gives the meaning of nothing but it is nothing but a vicar, a reminder and a clear for all.

00:46:56 --> 00:46:59

Now, what's the significance of calling the Koran a reminder?

00:47:00 --> 00:47:01


00:47:04 --> 00:47:05

Did you know is it also a question?

00:47:08 --> 00:47:09

Because you had to show up

00:47:12 --> 00:47:15

what does this mean up becoming an old band and become predictable? Isn't it?

00:47:18 --> 00:47:20

Hello, but before I do

00:47:23 --> 00:47:24

Yes guys.

00:47:29 --> 00:47:37

I said the very good in one way or the other is a reminder it that it resonates with human intuition.

00:47:38 --> 00:47:39

Rather than

00:47:40 --> 00:47:58

it is a reminder because it resonates with human intuition and human consciousness what humans already know somewhat to be true and right is exactly what the Quran speaks of. What the Quran deems to be wrong and evil. Human beings already can gauge that somewhat.

00:48:00 --> 00:48:06

However, there's more to it than that. What is another benefit for quite the porada rebind the inhaler because

00:48:09 --> 00:48:10

no one else

00:48:11 --> 00:48:15

in while ethical, wise, ethical, but other backroom

00:48:17 --> 00:48:18


00:48:26 --> 00:48:26

A future

00:48:28 --> 00:48:29

a future

00:48:35 --> 00:48:36

is truly survivable.

00:48:39 --> 00:48:39

I don't get what you get.

00:48:42 --> 00:48:44

Anyone else offer? Yes.

00:48:50 --> 00:48:51


00:48:52 --> 00:48:53

it's all good. It's all them.

00:48:58 --> 00:48:58

For those who

00:49:00 --> 00:49:04

survived for those who ponder it is a reminder for those who ponder.

00:49:08 --> 00:49:09

You gotta take a bit further

00:49:12 --> 00:49:13


00:49:14 --> 00:49:15

to benefit from the Quran a

00:49:17 --> 00:49:24

person needs to give it time, isn't it? Like we are giving this verse time? Only when we give it time do we benefit from it?

00:49:26 --> 00:49:28

So when the Pilates record reminder,

00:49:29 --> 00:49:36

it tells us that you need to remind yourself constantly about what the Quran says in order to benefit from it.

00:49:38 --> 00:49:51

If you don't remind yourself regularly about the advice of the Quran, you will not benefit from it. That is why it is thicker as well. It has to be constantly remembered, constantly studied and revised.

00:49:53 --> 00:49:59

The other thing is, according to the Quranic narrative, the impact of this

00:50:01 --> 00:50:02

His way in the human body

00:50:03 --> 00:50:09

where does the ticker live? at impact Yes, Allah basically light blue

00:50:10 --> 00:50:18

but then a lot closer for our for our Blue Beam, which means is clear. Where does clarity impact

00:50:20 --> 00:50:35

the mind? Exactly So Allah says it is a vicar impacts here at his poorer being it impacts his spiritual and intellectual guidance is what you get from the

00:50:36 --> 00:50:52

spotlight and this is what the profits in the story said. They said about Elena lol Bella Appleby. All we need to do is communicate to you this clear message here the revelation of God clear message

00:50:54 --> 00:51:01

inwa illa de croo r&b? Yeah, so the two descriptions of the Quran are number one.

00:51:02 --> 00:51:12

And number two, it has clarity. Now, what are the lessons we learned from this, my brothers and sisters, is that the Quran is not a book of confusion.

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

It was a book of confusion, which a regular person could not benefit from and read, understand a lower, not quote unquote audible beep it wouldn't. Because what's the point calling it a clear book, if the book itself is too difficult to read, doesn't make sense. And this unfortunately, is part of the Muslim mentality that they feel that a regular person cannot just go up to the plant, start reading it, the translation and try to understand that he cannot do that. In fact, if he did that he'd be doing something wrong. So people believe this. They would think that our class here is wrong.

00:51:52 --> 00:51:54

They do they say?

00:51:55 --> 00:51:57

Yeah, they say that.

00:51:58 --> 00:51:59

The only people who can study to see it

00:52:01 --> 00:52:03

are the old guys basically.

00:52:04 --> 00:52:22

The Bolinas, honestly, seriously. And you people you can also just listen to the speeches or lectures of people, you know, when they dumb things down for you. That is how you learn about the football, not directly. But that Allah said the Puranas will be which means that

00:52:23 --> 00:52:57

is does it's not confusing book. It needs a scholar to understand it. But that's to get a scholarly understanding as to a regular person understanding he can take something Yeah, how many people have had a lot of benefit for reading the translation of the Quran. I know people that became Muslim because just reading a translation the Quran. Yeah, this is another lesson. The fact that like hola karamo been clear, it means that one of the best things you can do for your non Muslim colleague, or Deva is to buy him or her a copy of the Quran.

00:52:58 --> 00:53:03

Well, the best is, it is clear Allah says it means that it will make sense to this person.

00:53:04 --> 00:53:14

And one of the best translation is the translation of abdulhadi Professor of the Halle best translation, and it doesn't have any Arabic so it's even better to give total Muslims by these

00:53:17 --> 00:53:23

Libya and give them as gifts to your most impressive quality Sharla Bella have a garden too. So

00:53:24 --> 00:53:34

this is the end of the desert shala had also lost a bit of a habit. Radha Yousef is right. Dessert cola head bar coffee cup. Any questions or comments? Yes.

00:53:44 --> 00:53:53

No, I didn't say take a special meeting I said which of the two meeting is more correct? that allow and blind them spiritually or allow our blind or physically?

00:53:54 --> 00:54:06

I said that the bow correct seems to be the physical because the next verses speak about physical punishment as well. That doesn't mean we rejected the second opinion ldb is out of the two which one would be more correct?

00:54:10 --> 00:54:11

Of course Yeah, that's what it is.

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


00:54:24 --> 00:54:24

asked where's the

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

How does it begin?

00:54:40 --> 00:54:41

Good evening, but

00:54:44 --> 00:54:50

anyway, if you look at photos of a booster via pistol Muslim, for civil civil stead shala.

00:54:51 --> 00:54:54

You find it and in the middle of it.

00:54:56 --> 00:54:59

I want to build out the vocabulary castle was in Cuba.

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

Please recite properly so in Cuba because it doesn't make sense to use this tool to keep the evil of Arabs Yeah, there's no good thing of arrogance. It's no good power of arrogance that evil power was given is evil. Yeah, so we'll keep out of

00:55:17 --> 00:55:22

the evil of old age is what we asked refuge from the Sharma okay does that cool okay?
