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

Fie team.

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


00:01:29--> 00:01:33

one famous and Phil O'Shea.

00:01:40--> 00:02:16

Sundar Han Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala VR mursaleen Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi as Marina my bad Santa Monica from Mercado mother's brothers and sisters. Welcome This is the fifth lesson I believe it is now on the course of Satya seen. We haven't made much progress in terms of number of verses, but this is the nature of this course it is an in depth study. So the idea is to try and gain as much benefit from each verse as possible. So that is why we are moving slowly we are on verse number. I think this is verse number seven now.

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

Alex are in the number seven.

00:02:20--> 00:02:27

Number seven. Yeah. So inshallah, the aim for today's lesson is to go through verse number seven, eight and possibly nine is go in Sharla.

00:02:29--> 00:02:41

Building up to this verse, are the first verses and the first verse is your scene will Quran Hakeem in Akemi, mousseline Allah Serato studien, Tenzin and Aziza Rahim between the Omen

00:02:44--> 00:03:31

are all speaking about the truth and the people of truth. Because it begins by Allah take an oath by the Quran wonderful and I swear by this put on, and the amount of wisdom it has the authority and its mastery in terms of composition. That Firstly, this man's message is true in Nicola Mila Muslim, and secondly, this man himself, Mohammed Salah Salem, Allah salatu salam is on a straight path he's not crooked is not messed up rather, he's a straight arrow. And where is his message coming from Tenzin and Ozzy's Rahim, it is coming from none other than Allah Subhana Allah descending down from the heavens, what is his job, it is to warn a nation, ie the Quraysh. and by extension everybody

00:03:31--> 00:03:49

else, because they fought for their forefathers will not want. They only had his main committee many years before, and they had become often negligent about the purpose in life, and about the fact that a lot is lt worships, and instead, they turned to stone and began to worship stones.

00:03:50--> 00:04:41

Now, that being said, the next few verses are about are about barty. About falsehood, and the people of falsehood. So there's a contrast now it's going to move, attention is going to start to focus now on those people out there who are rejecting the processor. And it will speak about their spiritual state, and how messed up those people actually are. Yeah, so this is how the surah is now unfolding before us. Allah declares in this verse, a Sunnah a policy of a law. And the policy one line this verse number seven, is that people who reject Allah and His Messenger, so the longer it will send them, Allah will make the punishment of Hellfire binding on them compulsory on them, even if they

00:04:41--> 00:04:51

are the majority. Yeah, this is the policy of Allah subhanaw taala being illustrated in this verse. Allah says, lapada have been told to Allah,

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

that truly, the word has been made binding upon most of them for whom law you

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

be known? Because they will not believe. Yeah, they will not believe. Now, why is this being said here? The reason it's being said here is because if you imagine from the seal of perspective, and by the way, just a heads up, people who wish to really contemplate deeply on the Quran, like, unravel its marvels and wonders, they have to appreciate the role of the, of the sealer in the meaning of the Quran. So one of the ways you can do that is you can ask the question, okay, when was this sort of revealed? Like, what year exactly? When you find out the rough year, you can go and start to read the Syrah about what's taking place in that year. And that will help you really to appreciate what

00:05:46--> 00:05:53

the meanings are of the of the verse and then start to ponder over them. So we said soldier scene was revealed around the number.

00:05:54--> 00:06:39

Number 1010 years after the President has he made a profit. So for 10 years, in Makkah, this man, Mohammed sostenere, has been preaching. For the first three years it was private thereafter became public, and he has managed to convey the message of Islam to all of the people in America. Everyone knows about the message of Islam, despite that, most of the people do not believe in Yeah, so this verse Lakota have been called Wallach for him is being said in light of that reality on the ground, this is what is taking place. People are not only disbelieving in the process alone, they are mocking him, they are abusing him, they are making his life a misery as well as his follows. Yeah.

00:06:39--> 00:06:46

So in that scenario, Allah says the following that truly the word has been established upon them. Now

00:06:47--> 00:06:59

lapada have been told the word lipids It is used to emphasize what is going to be said it is used to make it to say truly this is the case there is no shadow of doubt about this. They say that the lamb here

00:07:01--> 00:07:10

in the earth as we said the lemon law is for an embedded oath. This would now be what number hosts in the soul so far, how many O's have been taken so far.

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

The first hosts hosting sorry, our cities which hosts

00:07:16--> 00:07:41

walco annual hacking wild person. However, Sam's going to set the scene itself as an author as well, I didn't mention at the beginning, but just as a side point, this is the second oath first Oh, I swear by the Quran, and is happening hacky AI x y Zed. Now, the next oath is a nice way of law says I swear that the word the old has been made binding on most of them. What is the word?

00:07:43--> 00:07:46

What is the poll here? A poverty said was

00:07:47--> 00:08:30

that the punishment has remained binding, ie the word is the punishment. Yeah. Here very interesting spotlight. I searched for any other interpretations of the word polar. In this verse. However, there seems to be no other book that I've come across maybe I went through maybe 2025 different books to search. There is no other interpretation. However, I have heard of an interpretation, another interpretation from a contemporary Okay, and I want to address that in Sharla. Before I do, let us speak about what the theorem said a poll is. They said if you read for example, sort of off in verse number six, Allah says work and it could have been a matter of bigger Adelina careful and the

00:08:30--> 00:08:36

homeless have Now Allah says that the word has been established, the same phrase has been used, this word has been established

00:08:37--> 00:09:04

by your master on those that have disbelieved and known as Harbor, not that they are the companions of the hellfire. May Allah save us all. Yeah, so this verse is clearly showing what the goal is, it is that they are in the Hellfire, right? That is the proof that what is being meant here is also the same thing. And they, so what am I saying that this is the case for who? Some of them? A few of them?

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

are most of them? What is the first thing

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

Allah accept him? Most of them.

00:09:12--> 00:09:18

Allah is saying that the punishment has become binding on the compulsory they are going to the Hellfire, most of them.

00:09:19--> 00:09:46

Now here, appreciate how this would have been taken by the processor. He's being declared by Allah that you know what most of the people out here, imagine. And he's sitting near the Kaaba. And he's been here for, you know, struggling with these people for 10 years trying to call them to Islam, appreciate Islam, embrace Islam, but most of them, they haven't believed in and rejected him and he sees them walking by. And as he sees them, he's reflecting over these words Allah saying, you know, most of them, they go into the hellfire.

00:09:47--> 00:09:52

How could they possibly have reacted to that? When you hear that most of the people that go into the help file?

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

What comes to your mind if someone said that to you about society, mostly people are going to tell you what may you think if you

00:10:00--> 00:10:25

job was to call them to Islam. You might think, what's the point? Isn't it? What's the point? But the key here is Allah says, actually most of them, which means they are a few of them, that will still accept your message. So don't say Oh, because most of them are gonna accept Islam was the point rather say, and you search out the few of them that will, yeah, the few of them that will.

00:10:26--> 00:10:40

For whom law, you know, because they will not believe, interesting how much Allah said, for whom law, you know, using the present tense verb, for whom law, you mean whom this is the present tense as if to say, they haven't, they're not believing?

00:10:41--> 00:10:52

Yeah. Not that they will never be believers, what's the difference between the two? If I'm not saying they will not be believers, it could mean that they will never, ever believe ever.

00:10:53--> 00:11:08

But when Allah said they are believing, it can mean right now they're not believing, but possibly the future they might, right. And the way we understand that is that every single human being when his eyes, you know, see the angel of death.

00:11:10--> 00:11:17

And his soul is taken from him, he will then see the unseen. When he does, that, he will believe

00:11:18--> 00:11:32

Richard Dawkins, you will then believe, yeah, you will deal with it. So, that is, perhaps why I use the present tense, because everyone's going to leave one day. But the point is, are you going to believe when is the unseen? Yeah, you know.

00:11:34--> 00:11:40

Now, what is the other interpretation, the other interpretation is the power means the

00:11:41--> 00:11:42

message of the processor.

00:11:44--> 00:11:52

ie, your message has become binding on the meaning they know what your message is now,

00:11:53--> 00:12:04

despite knowing your message, the sooner gonna believe. Now, is that different to the interpretation I've given? Or is it the same? Or is it very different? What do you think?

00:12:05--> 00:12:15

interpretation? Number one, is that the poll means the punishment has become binding interpretation. Number two, is that your message has become clear to them?

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

is a different sort of,

00:12:19--> 00:12:29

you don't think there is? There's a difference? Because your message has become binding, though it may be true, historically speaking, it doesn't mean they're going to go to hellfighters. It

00:12:31--> 00:12:38

does, it does mean that it could be that your base has become binding, that doesn't necessarily mean that they're going to go to the alpha,

00:12:39--> 00:13:25

isn't it? So there is a difference here? Yeah, there is a difference in between this interpretation. Like I said, I haven't found that anywhere. And when it comes to the differences in deceived, you have to appreciate that the differences intercedes are very few. Yeah. And the reason that is, is because the idea of the seed is to uncover the meaning of the Quran for the verses as intended by Allah. You're asking the question, not what do these words mean, in terms of the Arabic language? But what did Allaah mean by these Arabic words? There's a big difference. I just want to give you an example. I received a letter from my car rental company. Okay, they said that is from VW, they said,

00:13:25--> 00:13:42

when you return your car, if there are any damages to your car, there'll be some charges, and they gave me a list. Okay, so looking at the list, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the price is for quite, quite cheap. Right? So that's what the asteroid

00:13:43--> 00:13:51

and the bottom, these prices are indicative. I said, What does it mean indicative? What is it mean? Exactly? I really want to know, what does that mean?

00:13:52--> 00:14:01

Now, do I want to know what the dictionary is going to tell me the word indicative means? Or do I want to know what VW means by indicative? Which one?

00:14:03--> 00:14:49

VW isn't the word I could find out what that means. I don't know what they mean. That's what's important here. Right? So that's the idea of the professor. He's going to try and uncover what Allah intended by these words. And of course, he's going to refer to the Arabic language, but that's not all. He needs to follow certain principles, right. And that is why the difference is that there are very few. Now somebody may read books of the seat in the beginning and to an untrained eye, he may see many differences, right? You may see many differences. You say what you said there's no differences. Here, we find that this this scholars of the seat, they say, differences intercede of

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

two types. The first is what they call to no work different, the same meaning being explained using different words or examples. The second difference is an actual difference.

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

Meaning, this scenario is very rare, especially amongst the early Muslims. Yeah, even semirara Manasa is Padma feel sort of seed, that the differences of opinion intercede amongst the companions? was rare. was rare. Yeah. So usually what you'll find are different words being used to explain what this verse means. And I'll give you an example. If I said to you, can you explain to me what water is?

00:15:31--> 00:15:36

How would you explain to me what water is without using the word water? And any office?

00:15:37--> 00:15:38

liquid, this liquid?

00:15:40--> 00:15:41

pays to the scientist.

00:15:45--> 00:15:45

What do you say about?

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

How do you explain to someone?

00:15:49--> 00:15:51

Who says what is water? Water is anyone?

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

Everyone has to coke?

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

h2o, someone says liquid wells

00:15:59--> 00:16:01

for liquid natural flavor.

00:16:04--> 00:16:17

Excellent. You could say well, it's not. So do you get the idea? Are you all talking about different things? Are you talking about the same thing? The same thing using different words? Yeah. Someone could say rain someone could some you know.

00:16:20--> 00:16:26

Can't think of the right word here. But an exotic spiritual person comes along and says it is life.

00:16:28--> 00:17:08

He's right though from from from a certain angle. He's right, isn't it? Water is life. Right? So even he's talking about the same meaning. Perhaps it's slightly further away from what everyone else is saying. Right? But generally speaking, this is the same thing. So this is what the you know, the untrained eye sees, he thinks has differences. There's not differences This is it still after work? Yeah, the same easily be explained are the different words or different examples. And other just to make it very clear. An example in Tafseer books. Have a verse Allah says that people are in three different types. They are violin monoline FC, for men who mocked acid. And then from in home, sir,

00:17:08--> 00:17:33

because a lot of law says people are three types. The first is those oppressed themselves. The second moderate people, and the third are the foreigners in big good deeds. Now in explaining this, you find some of the companions or the terrain, they say, the Tafseer of this ayah is the volume of his knifes is the one who misses his prayers, he doesn't pay them on time.

00:17:34--> 00:17:58

Well, I forgive us for this is avoided. As for the modra, he is the one who prays it in the time, but not in the best time. Here to take note, I didn't say the earliest time because the initial time, the best time is not the earliest time it is the time closes to the middle of the night, the majority of scholars, and then a server can build build hierarchies, the one who prays it in the best time.

00:17:59--> 00:18:33

So somebody might come and read another book, and he sees that actually, they're describing it with an example of fasting, or hunch or maybe, you know, good good manners. Are they speaking about different types? Or is this like different interpretations that was going on who's right? Who's wrong? Now? It's the same interpretation, just using different examples. You follow? They anyway, this is sort of, yeah. So when it comes to this interpretation, what do we say we say that, you know, we need to be cautious about these things. Because once you open the door to new interpretation,

00:18:35--> 00:18:40

people will jump through the door, and they will bring some weird and wacky things. For example,

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

there is there is this in the books of the seal of the Shia Muslim, that aptamer Salah doesn't mean establish the five daily prayers. It means to establish establish the infallibility of Ali Fatima, Hassan Hussain at the man.

00:19:02--> 00:19:43

So they might say, look, you guys, you're happy to have your own different interpretations. Somebody just the other day made a new interpretation. You said it was fine. So what's the what's your beef with our interpretation? You know, is it you see, I'm saying so there are principles, when the scholar of the sea follows in order to arrive at not to what they could possibly mean but rather what aligned tended by them. They, okay, so anyway, so just to summarize this verse, Allah is saying that most of them are going to the Hellfire because they refuse to believe. Yeah. Here in ambrozy he highlighted something quite amazing. He said, there's an implied meaning in this verse and that is,

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

it is actually pointing towards the the amazing efforts of the processor, that despite all the hardship, he managed to convey the message of Islam to all the people of Makkah, only then would Allah say Muslim

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


00:20:01--> 00:20:18

after they have been told the message of is not so the processor suparna even in these difficult times, you know these at this moment they are assassination attempts on the process that have been made. Yeah this is the extent to has got to assassination attempts have been made on the processor

00:20:19--> 00:20:30

panel is so beautiful like, it just gives another dimension to when you put on for example, the conversion of Hamza or the love them anyone know when he became Muslim? What you roughly

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


00:20:34--> 00:20:35

so, is it

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


00:20:38--> 00:20:48

close six around the sixth year after prophecy, and Hamza was the uncle of the processor. And what happened is that one day

00:20:49--> 00:21:36

I will Jehan he saw the person said, I'm all alone near the Kaaba. And he went up to him and he started insulting him. And he started to insult him abuse him verbally, and started to insult him and his family, to have been hashima is insulted him, his, his, his father, his forefathers, so on and so forth. And there was no man from Ben Hashem around to stop him may have to appreciate, you know, the Arabs, tribal ties was a strongest bond, even stronger than religion. Therefore, even though many of his family members were not Muslim, the fact that he was been Hashem and battle Hashem was being insulted by Abuja, who was from Burma zoom was a big deal. And the women are very

00:21:36--> 00:22:01

harsh him they heard what was going on, and they became extremely offended. So what happened is that when Hamza Who was he was hunting at that time came back, he used to have this Sunnah, as was the son of many people. As soon as they come back into Makkah, they built off around the Kaaba. Yeah, walk around the Kaaba. He comes to the Kaaba, and the women of Burma, Hashem, they come to they said, Do you hear what has happened today?

00:22:02--> 00:22:45

Your nephew and us in general have been assaulted. Like, we've never been assaulted before. It was unbelievable. Applejack was saying, and where were you? You know, how dare someone insult us like this and you're not around. So he becomes infuriated. And he's not a Muslim. He's not a Muslim. And he goes to find a vagina, vagina sitting with some of his comrades. And as soon as he goes up to him, he smacks him with his bow over his face, or his head, and I will gel falls to the ground, and there's a cut and starts to bleed. He doesn't get back up his tribal members, but they get up to say something and he says, Don't go. Don't say anything, because today I insulted Muhammad. So sir, like

00:22:45--> 00:23:06

I've never done something before. Then Hamza says, How do you insult my nephew when I am one of his fellows? Now he said this out of Hallelujah. Hallelujah to Jay Haley. The Quran says, out of pride of his tribe, not out of belief in the processor?

00:23:08--> 00:23:15

I do. Yeah. It didn't accept Islam. They are out of anything, but a show of chivalry and pride.

00:23:17--> 00:23:20

So what happened is, even when he's walked off, he's like, oh, what did I just say?

00:23:22--> 00:23:32

And they look so similar. They say he made $1 to Allah, that, oh, LA, I'm stuck. I cannot go back on my word, because I lose face. And

00:23:34--> 00:23:43

I've said something, which I don't know whether it's the truth or not. So therefore do one or two things. Either show me the truth, or take my life.

00:23:44--> 00:24:20

So he goes to the premises, he goes, he's walking around, and he says, You know what, I haven't died yet. So let me go see the process. He goes through the process of them. And the person knows that something has happened. So before he can speak, the person speaks and begins to, begins to give him doubt, begins to call him to Islam begins to tell him Look, the time has come for you to believe what are you waiting for, so on and so forth. Imagine the president giving doubt to someone. And he did it with so much passion that comes with it. I already said that I'm one of your fellows. And now, I will take my Shahada before you and this was one of the happiest moments of the life of the

00:24:20--> 00:24:36

processor. So this any this is the this is the kind of things that are happening, have the later McKee stage where this surah is being revealed. So very few people have become an elder law says most of them they're not going to believe this was the reality on the ground most of the people they would not believe.

00:24:37--> 00:24:39

Now, the next verse

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

will now go into more detail about the spiritual state of most of these people. Why are they not believing what is the matter with the VA have a profit amongst the mists and he is the best of all profits. They are not listening to. Why? Allah Allah Allah says in nirjala Fianna to him Allah Allah for here in a corny for him

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

baka mahone. Allah says and we, we have made on their next something called agonal which means shackles. When Allah begins by saying in Albuquerque, he says, Is illustrating his power to do something.

00:25:17--> 00:25:33

No one else could have done this. Only a law with his immense power could do something like this. What did Allah do Jana he made we made so in Jana should be translated, indeed we we made

00:25:35--> 00:25:39

in their next that was Alon Ashok, who's

00:25:40--> 00:26:01

the singular is the whole and the whole sad he said, Our iron collars, which go around the neck like this. They go around the neck like this. And those collars not only do they bind around the neck, they have a place for the hands to be locked into is what

00:26:02--> 00:26:34

Allah says on their necks are these shackles, their hands are forced and tied to them. For here in a barn and the shackles that are around the neck. They actually reach all the way up to the bar, which is the meeting point of the jaws. Yeah, the jaw line here. They stretch all the way up to them for home, on the home. And because of that they become locomotion, which literally means that your head has been forced up like this, and you're having to look down

00:26:35--> 00:27:20

here, you have to look down like this, which because your head has been forced my quotes. Now what is this all about? First of all, pay attention to you know the scene here. The scene is someone inside the prison, isn't it? This is the the picture of the prisoner. And not only is he just shackled like this, he's shackled in three ways. The first shackle is around his neck. The second shackle is his hands to his neck. The third is that the neck, the shackle around the neck is protruding up and forcing the head back. Yeah, so it's three times the severity is like three times in terms of shackling the person and that's to illustrate one point.

00:27:21--> 00:27:34

Even if this person wanted to, they cannot move side to side they have no freedom whatsoever. They are completely stuck in that state. Yeah, they are completely stuck in that state.

00:27:35--> 00:27:37

The word for what

00:27:38--> 00:27:39

Allah says because of this, they became

00:27:41--> 00:27:42

very interesting with the

00:27:44--> 00:27:59

last night he said he said that the Apollo mission refers to the camel when the camel Has anyone ever been close to a camel before? anyone tried to ride a camel before? Yeah, it's easy. It's not easy.

00:28:00--> 00:28:01

So the camel

00:28:02--> 00:28:27

when it owner tries to get it to drink water, because we know when you're going on a long journey, they try to fill up the hump of the camera with as much water as possible and try to basically force it to drink as much water as possible. When the camel is told to you know, drink water from the pond for the well. Where does he put his head up like this? and pushes pushes his head back to the site. He refuses to put his head down.

00:28:28--> 00:28:34

And that is almost like a show of pride for the council. You want me to drink water? eagle

00:28:35--> 00:29:01

is basically said oh no gonna take anything. Yeah. So this is the army. It is the action of a camel. By the camels are very intelligent animals. I remember when I was in Egypt, one of my friends told me that don't try and double cross the camel. He said that if if a if one of these, you know, I don't want to call the herders or whatever. The owners of camels if he tries to breed, you know,

00:29:02--> 00:29:15

in the same family get a female and a male from the same family to breed. Then he has to trick them and the way he treats them as he blindfolds them. He blindfolds them, and then he puts them together. They may end up you know,

00:29:17--> 00:29:33

breeding, but if they find out he said, then the male camel will wait for its owner to go to sleep on the floor. when it sees him sleeping. It will walk over him and sit on him and kill him.

00:29:34--> 00:29:37

Yeah, killing Google in Sharla.

00:29:39--> 00:29:40


00:29:41--> 00:29:45

was amazed. Yeah, they so they are very, very,

00:29:47--> 00:30:00

very intelligent smart creatures. So hello July is saying about these people that these shackles what it will do to them it will force up their heads like this. They're looking down almost like the camel when it refuses to drink water. And in the use of the word book

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

are shown is an indication to the crime that was committed that resulted in this punishment. Allah says we did this to these people. They will play Rahim Allah says this is not about a physical illustration. This is about the metaphorical. The shackles are on the hearts. And the hearts therefore are deprived from faith. And from doing any goodness. Yeah from doing any goodness. Why are the heart shackled full? Why are they spiritually crippled? Why?

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


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

none of

00:30:47--> 00:30:48


00:30:50--> 00:31:00

know, sorry. It's because of the arrogance. It's because of the arguments that they fought themselves to good to follow the professor center.

00:31:01--> 00:31:32

And because of the arrogance, a large a lot of punish them. And one of the punishments is that they spiritual state becomes disfigured, almost, and it's pretty amazing. I was thinking about it like night vision goggles, you know, the person in the middle of the night. He can't see anything, but it was his hand. It was a night vision goggles and in terms of one class, he can start seeing things that he couldn't see before. This is almost like looking into the hearts of all these people. You can't see anything but once this verse comes you look at it through that, that all

00:31:33--> 00:32:23

these arrogant people look at them inside. And that's beautiful contrast because on the outside, they pretend to be great people enjoying life living up by law says look at the inside. The inside is a miserable state. The inside they are suffering. Yeah, another generosity selfishness around for example, from an Alabama decree famed Allahu marisha banca Allah says, Whoever turns away from my remembrance, he will have a miserable life and miserable life. So this is a beautiful contrast. Another, you know, contrast to this verse with the previous verses is that they said, look at that man, Mohammed says certain stuff a lot of they said he's messed up. He's bewitched. He's gone

00:32:23--> 00:32:34

insane. He's a fortune teller is a sorcerer. Who Allah says, No, no, he's a sort of mystery. As to you guys. You want to see what your hearts are, like?

00:32:35--> 00:32:54

Terrible image of you? Yeah, this is what you your internal state is like, we have placed this around you because of your arrogance. Yeah, because of the arrogance. And to be honest, to be honest, my brothers and sisters, we have to clarify one thing. I think I have a statement of I'm not a Russian Mullah.

00:32:55--> 00:33:23

He says, commenting on that verse. And the next verse, the following, he says, If you reflect over the state of a cafard, who is shown the truth, and had it explained to him, only then to obnoxiously reject it and show the worst kind of enmity towards it, then you will find this example fits him or her aptly. And laws help is sought. What is

00:33:24--> 00:33:36

he saying this is describing not just any disbeliever. But the disbeliever, who's had Islam communicated to them, explained to them. And then they say To hell with that.

00:33:37--> 00:33:59

I'm not going to bother to accept that this is their state. And then he says me a loss, along with some laws help is sought against anything of that nature. And that helps us to appreciate that. This is about that type of disability. Yeah, this is a punishment. However, I would add something here. This doesn't come about overnight.

00:34:01--> 00:34:36

It doesn't go from zero to this state. Rather, it comes in levels. Perhaps some of us have a sheet of this checklist. Yeah. Perhaps because who can say radiant, truly, there is no arrogance in the heart. Who can say there is no pride inside of them. Sometimes the law, a person doesn't realize that realize that there is pride inside until something happens to him? Yeah, for example, somebody says to ask you a question, maybe in your field or something. And they say, Oh, do you know this? And you're like, fujimi do I know this small field? You know, I'm saying

00:34:39--> 00:34:40

meet Jolla.

00:34:43--> 00:34:46

Yeah, and you might think about it was where did that come from?

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

What happened there? Was that really me? That was just really arrogant of me? Yes, patola. So, a lot of help. From arrogance should be sold by everyone. And what

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

Have a level of arrogance you have inside of you, you will have a share of this punishment as well. Because the impact of arrogance is that a person turns away from the truth, even if he knows that it is true, even if he knows that it is true, and this is the most extreme example. And this is the truth of the process of Mizzou and certainly Muslim. He said, I'll keep it all bottled up, they will come to us. He said I'll keep on defining it. It is to

00:35:25--> 00:35:32

it is to reject the truth even if you know it's true. And to look down on people for no good reason.

00:35:33--> 00:35:41

This is the definition of the pride that is condemned by Allah. blameworthy. Yeah.

00:35:42--> 00:35:46

Okay, the next verse, and how long do we have left before?

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

930 so 15 minutes

00:35:53--> 00:36:18

Okay. Well john, I mean benei ad him said don't want me to hunt for him said them fell Shana who for whom label suit on and if that wasn't enough to talk about them in this state, a lot completes the picture. Yeah, a lot completes the picture by saying and what do we have made? in front of them a set a barrier, a blockade.

00:36:20--> 00:36:23

And behind them a barrier?

00:36:24--> 00:36:29

fellowship a noun, and we have covered them up from the top.

00:36:30--> 00:36:35

For whom law you will soon and so they cannot see. What can they not see.

00:36:37--> 00:36:41

The truth? They cannot see the truth they cannot see.

00:36:42--> 00:36:58

They cannot see the truth of the person message, the truth of Islam, the truth of the Quran, so on and so forth. They just can't see the truth. They can't see right from wrong anymore. Why? Because they full of acronyms. Yeah. And you know, this is this is so telling, arrogance, you know, is so telling.

00:36:59--> 00:37:11

If we're saying that, okay, a person who is arrogant, doesn't matter how intelligent he may be, he can't see the truth. Therefore, seeing the truth is not is not dependent on intelligence,

00:37:12--> 00:37:18

or the intelligence that we deem to be intelligence, like the IQ? Because I remember.

00:37:20--> 00:37:34

I don't know if it was a tweet or something. But someone tweeted, a Richard Dawkins, he was, you know, he's the outspoken critic of Islam. May Allah guide him. And somebody asked him question, were very witty, they said,

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

tokens, have you ever read the Quran?

00:37:38--> 00:37:40

And he said, Well, not yet.

00:37:42--> 00:37:43

He said, I haven't yet.

00:37:44--> 00:37:45

He just exposed himself.

00:37:47--> 00:38:04

You are supposed to be an academic. The words that come out your mouth are supposed to be evidence based. And you haven't even read the religion, who you criticize. And you tell people that it is backward? What does that say about you?

00:38:06--> 00:38:38

It says a lot about you, doesn't it? Say that perhaps you're not really the academic which you make out to be? Perhaps there is what your criticism of Islam is, says more about you than it does about Islam. Yeah. So whenever Joe says they're so puffed up with arrogance, they can't see the truth. It is so true. They can't see the truth. They don't bother to check what is true and what is not. Rather what fuels them is hatred. Yeah, and arrogance. So here Allah Allah says that he had made barriers, how many barriers in this verse

00:38:39--> 00:38:42

in front of them behind them

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


00:38:45--> 00:38:46

over them on top?

00:38:48--> 00:38:49

Why do you think three barriers are mentioned here?

00:38:51--> 00:39:11

If this is completing the scene, and the scene of people shackled like this, with absolutely no ability to move around, or even to look around, and then you're told you know, those people they can't go forward. They can't go backwards. And on top of them there's a covers or how does that complete the scene where do you see that those people know?

00:39:12--> 00:39:13

What kind of place you see them in?

00:39:14--> 00:39:22

Yes, in prison, then inside the prison, but why three berries? Why not on the right and the left?

00:39:25--> 00:39:25

What do you think?

00:39:26--> 00:39:27

At the back then?

00:39:29--> 00:39:30


00:39:31--> 00:39:32

the rejects everything.

00:39:40--> 00:39:46

Okay, they don't believe me at the moment that we said that what that means is that they're not believing in this dunya

00:39:47--> 00:39:48

they will.

00:39:49--> 00:39:51

They will not be careful anymore. Yeah.

00:39:53--> 00:39:54


00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Okay, behind them is the past.

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

On top of the mr. president in front of me the future interesting anything else? No.

00:40:13--> 00:40:15

Okay, avenues which revelation comes

00:40:21--> 00:40:23

Okay, Revelation is heard

00:40:24--> 00:40:27

the signs of revelation are seen and the heart

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

leave anything else

00:40:37--> 00:40:38


00:40:46--> 00:40:46


00:40:54--> 00:41:06

so just so the sisters can listen to the brother said that is perhaps there's a cover above them which means that the Quran is coming from above them, but they can't they don't accept that they don't see that yeah

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


00:41:27--> 00:42:11

right so they rejected the past that was given to them and for for the foreseeable future they're not going to see any signs of the revolution. Okay, just because of time so it's good Mashallah, it's good to think about this is good to ponder and reflect. Perhaps the reason why is the Quran usually presents his arguments in three ways. The first way it presents the arguments is by way of DIRECT address. Yeah, a DIRECT address, like in the beginning of soldiers in La Jolla says directly in Nicola Mutombo Selena, Allah serratos, you are without a shadow of a doubt from those that have been sent. And you are without a shadow of a doubt, on a straight path, you're on a straight path.

00:42:11--> 00:42:49

This is directly Allah telling us something. Or for example, from our own inner whoever is saved from the file or the hidden agenda and enter into power his puppet affairs, he has exceeded DIRECT address, do this don't do this, this was gonna happen to you. But then there's another way, which is to relate what's happened in history, historical accounts, stories of the past, just like inside this sort of there will be a story about us hablo Korean, something historical account that took place many, many years ago. What is the point of relating that? Because that's another avenue by which to make an argument. Historically speaking, this is what happened.

00:42:50--> 00:43:08

Don't you see a set sign in that? And then there's a third way Allah calls upon the human being to reflect over nature and the signs around them? Don't you see the signs around you? The signs of nature, the beauty, the design in the personality, we'll have the oxy Rafi lady when

00:43:09--> 00:43:53

Albert Allah says so early Milan was number 190. Indeed, in the creation of the skies, and the earth in our shoe said is talking about the Nirvana, the design of the organization of outer space, space, and this world. And the alternation of the night and day, how you get your calendar days out of it. Your concept of time is forged through the alternation of the night and date. But don't you look at that, and realize that they are signs pointing to the existence of a creator, his mind, His Majesty, his knowledge and his right to be worshipped, but you see that it's in nature. These are the three ways the Quran usually will communicate his arguments. That is perhaps why Allah said there are

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

three types of barriers.

00:43:55--> 00:44:01

The first barrier is in front of them. They don't look at nature. And they wake up every morning and say, you know what Cipolla

00:44:02--> 00:44:31

This is a blessing from Allah. Look at this the sunrise, this is a beauty. What about the beauty of the Create? Yeah, they don't look. They don't look behind them. Somebody stories occur and relate to them. And they say, a sell to our team. They say these are just old fables of the past, don't believe them, made up stories. And they don't accept the direct revelation that comes down.

00:44:32--> 00:44:59

They say no, these words are the words of a poet or a sorcerer. So they reject all three signs. And that is because there are three berries on them. The one in front, the one behind and the one above. Now where it gets really interesting is that inside sort of GRC, there are these three avenues approached as well. The first is the direct revelation that is verses one to six directly online selling. This is the truth.

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

Except it then shifts to a stable career, which is the next sign, historical sign in the story, then allow us switch to the next sign, which is science in nature, don't you look at the shutdown, you look at the sun of the moon, it is not befitting for the moon to catch up with the sun here and to distort the alternation. And its rotation is all but don't you look at that, though, you look at the signs in nature, they don't look any of those signs. Why? Because they have the three berries. This is from the beauty all sort of jazz scene. So this is perhaps why they are three signs. And there's a sense of irony here in this verse is gone. And the irony is that

00:45:41--> 00:45:42

these people,

00:45:43--> 00:45:47

they reject the message of the process, Adam, in order

00:45:48--> 00:46:04

in order to live without restriction, isn't it in order to live without restriction is now most people they reject us now? I remember once I was talking to someone about Islam, and they said, Yeah, but you know, there's so many things you guys have to do, isn't it? So I don't think I want to become Muslim.

00:46:05--> 00:46:11

And I'll seek his handler. This verse is showing us that those people that are arrogant, they reject Islam because they want freedom.

00:46:12--> 00:46:16

But the reality is that being far away from Allah makes you a prisoner.

00:46:18--> 00:46:34

makes you a prisoner makes you miserable. Makes you someone who is deprived from so many goodness, so many good things in their life. There's a sense of irony in this verse as well. Okay, as this one statement here in our bus, somebody may ask the question

00:46:36--> 00:46:44

like, how? How does one know or sorry, why is the law saying that most of them are going through the whole file? They haven't even died yet.

00:46:45--> 00:47:02

Why is the law saying that they are the spiritual state is like this messed up crippled with shackles on why isn't life making barriers for them? Why? They just, you know, fair enough, they might not accept now but they might accept later. You know, why is Allah stuff Allah forcing them

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

into a position where they cannot see the truth? Somebody asked that question, right.

00:47:09--> 00:47:10

So what is the answer to this question?

00:47:13--> 00:47:21

Someone says why Why? Why are they being forced to have barriers placed over them shackles on their hearts? Down to the Hellfire?

00:47:41--> 00:47:45

Okay, so it has to do with the knowledge of Allah knowing this state.

00:47:46--> 00:47:47

Anything else?

00:47:50--> 00:47:51

No, we agree. Yes.

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


00:48:15--> 00:48:53

No doubt it's can reassure the person is going to give what they call destinia consoling that, look, you're exhausting your efforts, but I'm telling you that most are not going to accept and why because look at their internal state, and there's barriers is hindering them. But the question is, somebody may see is a lot subtler forcing them into this situation where these barriers and they are tied up and so on and so forth. The answer is no logic is not a law knows that this is the state and the discipline and allies declaring that state based on his foreknowledge, so the knowledge the full knowledge of a law does not equate to does not equate to

00:48:54--> 00:49:32

compelling people. Yeah, there's a difference between the two. They Okay. Now, in terms of the lessons, there's a few lessons here, the first lesson that we learn is never be complacent. Never ever be complacent of Allah's punishment. We hear in the Koran whose partner somebody may say, How can it be that you know when you hang around most of the people are going to the whole fire that if you don't feel any way about that, that it doesn't scare you? When you hear that? Don't you think about yourself like am I one of those people that stuff alarm? I go to the Hellfire mela preserve us men protect us? Don't you think like that when you hear that and that is how you should think even

00:49:32--> 00:49:43

though it's related to those people, the meaning is eternal. Yeah. And then if one person hears in the Quran, Allah Allah accept him, his heart should shut up.

00:49:45--> 00:50:00

And you should think perhaps I am one of those that may stuff will go to the whole fight. Let me change myself. Let me make Toba let me sort myself out. I don't want to be of the many that goes to the Hellfire and Subhana Allah, Allah hottub even though the

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

selam gave him the congratulations of Paradise when he went on not offered. And he told him that you are from the Shahada.

00:50:08--> 00:50:10

He still thought he may be at one after

00:50:12--> 00:50:39

he still thought that he still went to her they thought. And I said to him, you know, the list of one African, tell me is my name on there? And he said to come on the secret keyboard, the press that I'm not going to tell you anything. He said, No, you must tell me. He said, Okay, I'm just going to tell you that you're not on the list. And I can't tell you anything else. Except how long you've been guaranteed by the lips of the processor. Why? Because the true believer he never becomes complacent.

00:50:41--> 00:51:00

Even if he was guaranteed the way he is with a law he would never become complacent. So law July season sort of circle out of me from LA Fela yet macrolide. Costume he says, all those people think this do those people think they are safe from the planning of Allah?

00:51:01--> 00:51:06

The only people who think they are safe from the planning of a lot of the losers.

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

That is the only type of person who would ever think that. The second lesson we learn is that a person should always be grateful for the man when he hears that most people are going to go to the Hellfire and most people are going to refuse to believe he should look at his own Islam as a gift from Allah, that he needs to think unlawful. Yeah. And there is a heavy for the process certain reported by his wife from cinema, who will share her bio said it is authentic that she said Carla can do IE that the most frequent supplication he would make is the kalevala kulu. A bit palpi Allah denecke old mover of hearts, you know, move my heart and fix it to your religion. And if the person

00:51:51--> 00:52:05

is begging Allah to keep guiding him, then what is the case for us? A man who's forgiven all of his sins, he's dating Allah, Oh Allah, please don't let my heart get messed up. Keep it firmer on this religion.

00:52:06--> 00:52:33

The third and final lesson is that sins impair your ability to see right from wrong. This is a very big lesson. A lot Delilah is telling us in this in these verses that these people they arrogant as a punishment, they will not be able to see right from wrong. Yeah, this is the punishment of Allah, on people that have become arrogant. And even in our times, we can look at society what society wants to, you know,

00:52:34--> 00:53:03

debate to discuss new issues. For example, on on sexual ethics on things like the definition of marriage. Yeah. 2008 the whole nation was discussing what's the definition of marriage? Imagine they took a word from the dictionary they said, what does this mean anymore? I don't even know what this means. Does it mean the coming together of man and woman in holy matrimony or does it mean a man man? What does it mean woman woman? Somebody say what about dog woman?

00:53:04--> 00:53:08

What about dog man? What about tree and man? About tree and tree?

00:53:16--> 00:53:20

So they having a discussion. They don't know what the word means anymore?

00:53:21--> 00:53:30

And what did they say? They said no. What people thought the word marriage meant for hundreds of years. They got it wrong. This is the new definition.

00:53:33--> 00:53:37

The whole dish and he agreed on a new definition of the word marriage.

00:53:39--> 00:54:06

Can't see right from wrong. Yeah. So here anything is up for grabs. Anything is up to be redefined, reinterpreted. And this is the side effect of you know, being far away from Revelation having parents and we should take heed of this that will lie in our in our sins. They impact on our connection with Allah our closest to Allah. One of the Shafi Rahim Allah

00:54:07--> 00:54:11

He said that he went to complain to his teacher who work here

00:54:12--> 00:54:23

was one of his teachers and he said to him that I find it difficult to memorize the books of knowledge. He said to him, my tip to you is stop sinning.

00:54:26--> 00:54:40

He said I took his advice. And there came a time where I would open a book and I would memorize both pages at the same time. So I didn't know which page came first. So I had to put my hand on one page and then look at this one then my under this page and then look at this.

00:54:43--> 00:54:59

And this is the impact of since on our hearts Yeah, that they they they impact on us in a big way. Love for yourself since David Shanahan was sort of lost cinema can only be Mohammed Wanda and he was he was named Sharla in

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

Any questions? We can take some questions before we entered us. Any questions from anyone?

00:55:06--> 00:55:07


00:55:16--> 00:55:18

What was the wisdom behind the turning?

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

Yeah, wow.

00:55:29--> 00:55:33

This was after the life of the person that you approach halifa. And

00:55:35--> 00:55:40

yeah, perhaps because he was a farmer, he could ask. And he would have to tell him

00:55:42--> 00:55:42


00:55:46--> 00:55:53

the wisdom. Yeah. Yeah. Well on him, I don't know. There must be many wisdoms behind telling for the for the name of the 70.

00:55:55--> 00:56:14

Perhaps, perhaps it was to, you know, strike fear in the hearts of the hypocrites, that there's someone else out there who knows who you are. Not just this man, the promises sort of your names on a list. And they are out there in the hands of another person as well. This perhaps would maybe one of the wisdoms behind behind this as well.

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


00:56:22--> 00:56:32

Yes, this this is one of the the inquisitive nature about the companion that he would ask about the end of times and about the future and about trials and tribulations.

00:56:33--> 00:56:36

A lot of money. I'm not going to accept any more. I don't know.

00:56:37--> 00:56:38

They have any other questions? Yes, sir.

00:56:48--> 00:56:52

No, I said, there's only one view that I'll come across. The second is the contemporary that I've heard.

00:57:02--> 00:57:14

I've heard it from an embryo. And I wanted to check like, would you book in order to find it? And, you know, I checked in for the word wonderful ones as well. Just to see what I could find it in there.

00:57:16--> 00:57:16


00:57:22--> 00:57:23


00:57:25--> 00:57:25


00:57:28--> 00:57:29

Inside the

00:57:43--> 00:57:45

it's possible to,

00:57:47--> 00:58:33

to try and reconcile. But the muscular is that, that this, this figure of speech, that I can call that our Kelly mental health, I wouldn't help these this kind of statement is used in many other places I put on like a sort of search there as well sort of offered here. So, you know, when you say that, it means this here, you create a problem, which is okay, so what does it mean this here, not this day, to see. And that is why, and when you start to move away from the first seat of the political diversity, you can learn to solve problems from an academic perspective, in fact, because even you know, someone who's an expert, for example, in Shakespeare, and then you say, Well, what

00:58:33--> 00:58:44

Shakespeare meant by this in Hamlet, was this, somebody who also acts as an expert check to say, hang on a minute, Shakespeare said the same thing there. So why why does it mean that they and this here?

00:58:46--> 00:58:53

Yeah, because you're trying to enter into the mind of Shakespeare, right. So this is from an academic perspective is problematic. Yeah. Yes.

00:59:06--> 00:59:08

So what was your question? Exactly? Say your question.

00:59:11--> 00:59:14

Yes, the 10 different recitals are put on put on the

00:59:21--> 00:59:38

Okay, so there's two questions here as for the wisdom, then the karate they are a they are a consequence of the growth and the growth as the hadith of gibreel that the person seldom said that the Quran came down to me in seven apple.

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

And what does what does that mean? It means that there are subtle differences between each and every one of them. But each one of them came down from Allah subhanaw taala. Why it is clear what they see, in order to make it easy for the growing Muslim community from different parts of the room.

01:00:00--> 01:00:13

peninsula to learn and memorize the poem. Because they used to say words slightly differently. Yeah. And sometimes they couldn't pronounce certain words the way others did. And that was the the basic

01:00:14--> 01:00:15

wisdom behind

01:00:17--> 01:00:54

the after the compilation of vocals on, especially the earthmen are found not the knock on the net results of the compilation was karats. Yeah, which was 10 different recitals. Was it the same as Afro for not? Well, there's many different opinions, but it's the same manifestation of the wisdom except that it was regulated. It was regulated, it wasn't as open and different as it was to the afro and the wisdom behind the difference between a clot and Ashraful item is that the actual will coming down in the life of the processor

01:00:55--> 01:01:05

at a time where Islam was spreading, and they could have recourse to the person who when and if there was any differences, like

01:01:06--> 01:01:23

comes across the domain, he says, I've heard he recited sort of upon differently Aha. So, two people disagree on something in the Quran, what can they do they can go to the listener and clarify this factor becomes missing after the death of the processor.

01:01:24--> 01:01:29

And on top of that, people do begin to differ on the

01:01:31--> 01:01:34

opposite fun, therefore, he had to take radical action

01:01:36--> 01:01:49

to mitigate this problem, and there was a consensus amongst the companions of what they should do and they did what they did and what they did was no doubt guided by logical order and it resulted in the plots therefore, the plots are many are a

01:01:50--> 01:01:57

continuation or a product rather of the truth and they represent the same wisdom but on a on a lower level.

01:01:58--> 01:02:38

Yeah, as for the seed and the karats then the professor has to consider all the clouds in reverse, no doubt. Yeah, because the different crowds may have different possibly have a different word though that is very rare, but they could have different domains like yeah and so on and so forth. And then a person will have to consider all of these and then say the verse means this Yeah, all say it means this back one two, this could also mean this as well. Yeah, but there's an extra level of complexity though. So no doubts or the trolls have to be considered but I don't know if that helps.

01:02:39--> 01:02:40


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


01:02:58--> 01:03:05

here this always saying every one of which is a singular Ashraf was revealed to the processor

01:03:06--> 01:03:07

budget released

01:03:09--> 01:03:17

everything here so it's all one as it is all coming down from the fact that it is not the product of any human intervention.

01:03:21--> 01:03:36

Okay, hello. Okay. by topic of deception, okay, we'll see you next week. And actually, it's not next week. There is no does. I'll be we will continue the week after Sharma who continue to week after most probably most of time again. Okay, see you. Bye bye.
