Rahim al hamdu Lillah
wa Salatu was Salam O Allah at a man milania clearly concrete La Jolla, Jemaine Nabina. Muhammad in wild early he was savage main, some of our the cinematic commercial law, he want to go to their his brothers and sisters, and welcome now this is the 27th lesson of the soul of Yusuf Ali Salam. And this is the final episode as well inshallah we'll be covering the remaining ayat from verses number 106 to the end 111. We've got to the part of the surah, where the story has come to an end of the surah hasn't come to an end. And these verses that come out the end, they seem very different to the story. I mean, they seem like they're not related to but the reality is that they are like a
conclusion to the story. Just like the first three verses were like introduction to the story, the first three verses, you know, they didn't seem to be related to the story, but they were if you read them and understand them properly. So what do these final verses talk about? What they are essentially like threats? Okay, and warnings being given to the parish? So how do we understand verses about warning and threats coming to the parish and to all those people out there that think like them?
To be connected with the story of usefulness? Um, how do we like understand that? Well, the way we understand that is like, why was the solar reviewed in the first place? Who Sora was revealed, as opposed to bees, because some of the machinery can challenge the processor, certain or not, Rosie mentioned this as well, they asked about the story of useful Islam out of a sense of challenge obstinacy.
So they asked for Islam tell us if you really a prophet. Okay. And then I'm also part of the reviews. So the use of Jim. And so he's happy that look, Allah has helped me aided me. And there's a hope in the back of his mind that obviously, once he tells him the story there, what's going to happen to the kurush. Or at least some of them, they will, they will accept, they will embrace, they will submit, however, after relating the whole story than last one, okay, and threaten them. Why? Well, because as a lot of policies in this portion, that most of them, they're not gonna believe what Oh, hell as well. How does that even though you really are eager for them to believe? So it's
kind of like concluding the story that I've just told you the story useful Islam in the very best way, in the most beautiful detail? Are you not going to believe now? Well, if that's the case, then all that's left then is to warn you and to threaten you. Okay. And the idea is that the story useless is a miracle that the President would know it. Yeah, and unlettered man living in the deserts of Arabia would then be able to pull out the story of usefulness and I'm in a way this more detailed than related by someone other scriptures. And by the way, you can't read so this is a miracle, it should be enough for you to accept it. And you still don't well, then all that's left is
to warn you. Okay, warn you of the consequences of now, rejecting it, despite the fact that your question has been answered. Okay. So let's read now the final verses before we start to explain them.

Sri Lanka Alisha, you
verse 1061, ah, you may know exaro home Villa de la vamos silicone most of them, most of them, they won't they believe, except that with the belief, they also machinery Kuhn, this is how you can read this verse is translated as most of them do not have a man in Allah without associating others with him. But technically Allah is saying, Well, my yoke may not act through him. Most of them do not believe in law, except that alongside the man, they should, as well. So I'm also talking about the correlation that look, the reality is that most of them, in one sense, they have a man, but at the same time, they must recall. Yeah, so this brings a question to our minds, like, what does that
mean? Exactly? Either someone has a man or they don't have a man or the Muslim or, you know, Muslim. There's no in between is there? So this is a question. How do you understand this, that someone is saying that most of them, they have a man but alongside the man, they do share as well? So they wish the corner? They want me? No, no, Allah says that they emotionally corn. Okay, that's a question. The other thing is, what does this have to do with sort of use for the story of useful Islam? And the answer to that question is that Well, you've just been told the story, a magnificent story. Now, what's the response? except you're going to believe you can take the lessons? Or you're going to
say, well, there's another question you don't like, sometimes you doubt. And you might be standing at the dollar store, or someone comes up to you and says, You know, I want to ask you a couple of questions about Islam. Yeah, no problem. Go ahead. So, Mohammed is your God? No, no, Mohammed is not how God is the messenger of God. Okay. And this thing about terrorism, you know, can you explain it to me? Yeah, you know, there's some crazy people out there, they have a misunderstanding about Islam. And Islam is not really about Islam, this. Oh, yeah. And then, you know, your prophet got married to a young girl. Is that right? Yeah. Let me explain that to you. They, and then after that,
another question. And then after that, another question.
Okay, so if I answer these questions, are you going to accept this enough? I don't mind. If you genuinely feel that Islam has something to offer you. And you ask him because you don't understand these things? And then after that, you'll accept no problem?
Or is it the case that I can answer 101 questions, but you're just asking, because either you just want to frustrate me, or because, you know, he wants to try and point out the flaws in Islam, but you can't find any flaws. Which is exactly what people ask questions, because they want to find the truth. Are you asking questions for that reason? Or is there another reason? Well, this is what Allah has teaching us here that those people they ask the question they didn't actually want the answer.
Isn't, they want to know distributism? Because they don't believe that you're a prophet. They just wanted to try and poke holes and see, well, if you're a prophet, then you should be able to do this.
Well, the cases are responded to that. Okay, well, you now believe, or there's another question. So let's say the reality is, let me tell you the reality. Most of them they don't believe except that they are mostly Kuhn, at the very same time, meaning they're not gonna they're not gonna accept it regardless. The interesting thing here is that even Allah knows that they're not going to accept it, most of them not going to accept it, he still reviewed so the use of
now of course, for our benefit, support Allah. Thank you very much for asking the question.
But besides our benefit, why would the last panel that knowing that most of them will not accept the message if you told them the story of useful Islam still reveal it?
There's two questions. The first question is how can someone any have a man and be emotionally at the same time second question is why there must have had the reveal distributorless now when he knows that most of them are not going to accept it, or some are still gonna reject it?
You can answer the first question he man and share
Combination inside one person how does that work exactly? How can someone have a man except that they are majestic at the same time?
I don't ask this question yep
they do believe in a low key
okay so the worship others besides Allah like it was like they used to
okay so they've taken something that should be given to a lot of loan but they've given it to others our case close if anyone be more specific as to what the brother said what have they given to others that should have been given only to Allah?
Okay, so they believe in one aspect what aspect do they believe in?
that exists that he's a creator. But then another aspect they don't believe in which is
Okay, very good. Very good that they reject the prophecy of a hamster center. Yeah, so this is one clear case but doesn't make much like if someone denies the prophecy
technically does it
doesn't technically does it.
But they are also commercially cool. So which other aspect are they
you know disbelieving in which therefore makes them emotionally cannot?
Okay, very good. So Ruby means ascribing allies that up. We said worship they giving worship to Allah, which is Zulu here. Olivia Yeah, this is the way that our boss or the announcer Anoma as well as the sort of explain that a lot of how they're saying here that they accepted Allah as the Holic as the creator. But at the same time, they worship beneath Allah many other things. So they scribed on one side, having a man Allah as a creator, but on the other side, they said Allah, we worship you as well as others beneath you. So for example, we used to go for Hajj, they say La bacon, la mala make eluxury Kuhn, who Allah Dominica, who Mr. Malak, some way till we are they, they said, Allah,
we're here at your service, as well as you don't have any partners, except the partners that you chose to have for yourself and you own?
Yes, so they said,
You are the Allah. And alongside you, you have partners, you have given yourself those partners. Okay, so they mix between a man and ship. So, what we're learning here is that Islam really is all or nothing. Either you believe in Allah, and ascribe all your worship to him and him alone, and not to any saint not to any I do not to any grave, not to any other person living or dead.
Or your music.
There is no like, mix match going on. Some of this and some of this, all of it for a lot, a lot A lot. And that's the only thing I'll accept anything other than that is good for sure. So that's how we understand this. This ayah which answers one question, which is, how can I say What do you mean? Thoreau whom biLlahi most of them do believe in Allah except that they also moshtix as well meaning that they imagine that they have in Allah as his as a creator doesn't mean nothing to me. Why because they're doing shall cause me at the same time which makes them wish one question answer they're very good. The other question which is why would unlock how the reveal the story useful
esalaam when he then tells us after really get most of you will reject it. Most of us do not believe
others that will hear the story and become Muslim.
later on, people come they listen to the story. They accept Islam.
But later on, will most people accept Islam? Or will most people still reject Islam?
Yeah, the machinery gone. They still rejected most of them. But even until now, most people will accept Islam or mostly will reject Islam.
reject Islam still is like
universal, most people they refuse to believe.
Okay, so regarding the most people that refuse to believe, why would Allah still choose to show them a miraculous sign when he knows that Muslim will disbelieve
to prove his prophecy
yeah that's what we're saying here that this proves his prophecy but they still denied it
isn't it they still denied it is clear cut proof this man he came with a story just like that can't even read.
Okay, Allah you already knew that they're going to deny it. So what do we learn from the fact that you still went ahead and revealed it is
the message okay.
Right okay to establish the evidence against them. Okay, that's true from one sense that people will say on the Okay, I'm out of desperation and I was disadvantaged I wasn't given enough information enough time etc etc. Very good. That's one part of the answer. There's something else though.
The the okay to the professor sort of there's so many reasons why consoling him comforting but we're just focusing on the most of the people which Allah tells us they will not accept it even though they know it.
The ones that benefit or the few the believers but
there was requested by those people that are going to reject anyway, isn't it? And then unless to revealed it, and then said afters but most of us to reject it?
Yeah, so there is a question like how comes?
One more attempt one more turn? Anyone really think
you handle it?
Okay displaying the power of Allah.
Yanni it does, of course it does without a shadow of a doubt.
To prove the ulterior motives
for sure, it does show that there is an ulterior motive and the evidence is also then brought
sooner for me. But there's something else. And that's something else is that do we know who most of those people are right now?
Do we know who they are? You're one of those most of those people who don't even get to talk to you. Nope, when I wasted my time with you, you on the other hand, we don't do we don't know who they are. So Allah subhanho wa Taala even though he tells us most people reject it, we don't know who most of those people are. Which means that the way we behave and communicate Islam and propagate Islam is not based on most people will not accept it. So I'm not going to I'm going to basically avoid most of the people and I'll just focus on local people. Rather, the idea is that every single person needs to be spoken to about Islam and showed and invited to Islam and I will tell you that most of
them will reject you.
Okay, so I revealed this to all people even though I know most of them are rejected in the same way you need to invite every single person even though most of the people will reject you see the other side is Oh, most people will reject it what's the point isn't it allows teaching us that one needs to be done and that's why in the next couple of verses Allah his school had he severely say this is my way. So Allah you just told us that most people will disbelief But still, yes, still go out there and spread the message of Islam. I'm just telling you what will happen when you do
Okay, so this is the underlying message being given to the processor. I reveal this aura to you and you know, I know that you really want them to believe unfortunately they will not but don't be disheartened continue on continue on okay continue on. Now the threat comes after me know and do more Shia tominaga below e ot almost double that don't want him let
me know Allah talking will asking question about the Polish and everyone like the polish. So what do you mean everyone like to polish? Well, someone says to akutan bit about Islam. Okay, I'll tell you what would you like to know I like to know about stories of the prophets. Okay. I've destroyed use of have read of that. Let's go through that. Let's talk about that. Okay, that's good. That's really good. It's interesting. Okay, so what do you think then? Islam? stories of profits is there Yeah. Is there but you know, okay. So this is the case just like the kurush just like the polish. So the same message going to all people, okay. All people what does that miss it alpha amino. Do they
May Allah is also a question. to reprimand there will be okay not asking question as to why, but asking questions to reprimand you you know like you do something wrong. Like I think I mentioned this before you skip school, bang school and among them says to Why did you Well, you went to school last Thursday What? What happened? And what was not asking you why you didn't go to school she telling you off here Why didn't you go?
So the same Allah is reprimanding them after me? No, do they feel safe and to hamachi that maharsha will come to the mean other Villa from the punishment of Allah Alicia lover she means when something surrounds you from all angles, like so Look, man, what are you there last year how modem can bulan Allah said about those people stuck in the middle of the sea stranded on the ship. And then waves Allah says that those waves will come down upon them here come down upon them. So these like these big waves coming and crashing down as a rescue. So all I say is don't be afraid number one thing, which is that the punishment of Allah will come upon them and encompass them from all angles, okay.
of ours young men either belay Oh, do masa. Oh, case number two, that the sir, that the trumpet the final hour will come upon them Delta. Botham is basically out of surprise, like come up behind you, and you have no idea is coming up. second case would be that the sound will come on you don't we're homeless. Sharon, we're homeless. Sharon just goes to emphasize how much of a surprise to them, that they're going about their daily lives, and they haven't got a clue what's about to hit them what's coming the final hour. And it comes to them in a way that they have no idea whatsoever.
Now, what the first case is Allah saying, number one, did they feel safe, that the punishment will come to them right now in this dunya finish them off. That's how angry angry Allah is with them for rejecting the processor. Or case number two, I let them live. I let them live all the way up to the end of time. And then the Sara comes and takes them here. Like it's already a scene, where homie aka Simone, whilst they are just arguing and bickering amongst themselves in the marketplaces, meaning to the end of time they given enough time, but then the SEC comes and takes them which triggers the punishment of the hereafter. So they feel safe from the Punisher dunya. And they feel safe from the
punishment of Akira, meaning What's the matter with you have you know, understanding? This is what's coming your way? Watch out. The question here is that
a lot of describes the second punishment, which is the punishment of the earth that are coming to people all of a sudden, here, both all of a sudden out of surprise catching them off guard? What kind of message do you think that's giving the people
like this? You know, you're saying to someone look,
same same person who asked you all those questions, you say, well, I've answered these questions, you know? And do you really like to think you know that you are going to be looked at favorably with God after you die? Like what are you going to say to God, when you meet God? You asked all these questions, you kind of knew about the truth, but you're not accepting it. were you gonna say to God, you know, some missing, you know, what do you mean, when you say to God, is that like a threat? say, well, it's a warning from God, if you don't accept it, we punishment.
What kind of punishment? Oh, it could come right now. It could come right now, who's to say don't feel safe when that has happened to many people before? And that's the next verse, or live forever. And then just before the final hour? Bang, you're taken by surprise.
So taken by surprise, the final hour? Like what kind of messages Do you think that person is going to be getting?
is taken take me by surprise.
Catch me off guard, unaware?
What kind of messages are going to give? How is that different to saying the punishment of lunia second time, the second thing is the punishment of the actor which will come catch you off guard outcome, and that's it
is the hereafter now, what do you think
was the extra benefit in saying it's going to come all of a sudden?
Leave your ship immediately? Yes, he is giving that message like this is a powerful warning. Stop and change your ways right now. But specifically about the punishment coming all of a sudden.
What kind of extra message is that giving
anyone have an idea?
Yeah, that's true. Don't be complacent. Don't think you're so, so safe and secure. But that's not the overall meaning of that. We're just focusing on why Allah subhanaw taala say, the final hour will be established Botha all of a sudden, catch you off guard.
Let me let me let me teach you something here.
If you want to think critically about something, sometimes you need to think about the alternative. Here the alternative, okay, let's say it doesn't come. All of a sudden. Here it comes. And you can see it coming like big tsunami coming or something far away. I got 30 minutes. Oh my god. This is the end of time.
It's only minutes away. What are you going to do?
You're going to prepare, what are you going to do when you prepare? What's the first thing you're going to do?
You're going to make Toba isn't it? You're gonna make Toba.
Ah, so that's the alternative sound comes not muster. That comes any slowly.
Oh, I think I need to slow myself out now is right there. Let me make Toba. Okay, so now revisit the question.
What extra meaning comes about when Allah say is going to come all of a sudden?
No, are made the
sense that you will not have a chance to make Toba? Do you get this? If the sound is going to be established, all of a sudden souls taken End of story your life just came to an end. And it you don't even know where he? It means that you did not have the final chance to make Toba. Do this. Yeah. So this is even worse of a threat. If the other doesn't come to you in this dunya. And you managed to live until the end of time. The fact is that when the end of time comes, you know, you're going to have a chance to make tober. Okay, which is worse. So the main message of the ayah is, as I said, don't be complacent.
And the other interesting thing is, you know,
telling people about Hellfire, about punishment about God's anger, these kind of things are politically incorrect, isn't it to talk about these things? I mean, people say, Oh, you're talking about God, God's punishment, God's wrath Hellfire, his movie took, you know, you know, he's supposed to be talking about things talk about peace.
took a piece of my love, talk about compassion. And he these are the things that we should be talking about. Just a second, let's see what the Quran has to say. In fact, there's a mixture, mixture of talking about topsheet congratulations about Jenna about peace, about loving Allah, by loving the believers. But there's also talk about Hellfire as also talk about punishment. We can't ignore that. And one of the things of how long our brothers and sisters, that if you speak to a non Muslim, you speak to them out of love Anyway, you want them to embrace Islam out of love. And you don't want them to go to the Hellfire out of love to. Yeah, but the main thing is that, when you
actually get to that point, where you explain Islam to them, you have tried your best to help them to understand you've shown them good character, everything. There is the point where you need to say, there is consequences if you don't accept, and they're not going to be good. How are you going to be facing good after this? etc, etc, those type of statements. Now, what the IDM thinks apparently is the reaction on those people's faces. So many times I witness it myself. When you're giving our I remember one lady, this is going back few years old lady she had we did these exhibitions, and she came twice second time. So I know that she's interested. Oh, lady, well to do
academic I think it she said, Look, I've got one quick jump to the jump the gun race. I said, you come in twice now and it's fantastic. What's your reservations about accepting Islam who've fallen, isn't it? But she come twice. I just said that. She said, Well, the thing is, you know, I think Islam is very male orientated. For example, women, they can't pray when they on the menses.
I said, Okay,
that's true. They can't. But you do realize that you know, worship is our way of submitting to God submitting to His will. He wants us to pray. So we pray. So for a woman, being on a menses and being unable to pray, is also a form of submission because God said pray now and don't pray now. So in that is the spirit of submission. So you know, to say it's male orientated just because of this is
Maybe you haven't really captured the meaning of worship here. So we talked to she agreed they, but Hello has any kind of conversation. Nice to meet you. I said by the way, and if Think about it, you know, because we don't even know how long we're going to live there. We're gonna go meet God. We're gonna say to God,
there's only two places people go, either they go to hell or they go to Paradise. Let's think about it properly. Like your face change, her face changed. And it wasn't I wasn't saying out of the bitterness, frustration, or you don't accept it, you're gonna go to hell. It wasn't like there was genuine, genuine concern. So she her face changed on my face See that? She was like,
I think I did.
I think I already did you think about this, the same thing. There's three, three.
from three people from Ghana. Young, two young students took to Islam told about Islam 30 minutes. And then by the end of it, then by the way, if you don't accept this, some big punishment awaiting people, big punishment.
And this is I have to tell you, because
believe it or not on the other side, you'll say I never told you. That's what's going to happen.
And so one of them accepted Islam. After that one of them accepted Islam. And I think they're a family. So maybe they all accepted Islam archers, but we know that it's politically incorrect.
What is politically incorrect doesn't dictate what we say what we don't and put on dictates what we say what we don't. And so, part of the positives are amazing, the positives are amazing, because Allah knows human beings, human beings are not computers, they have emotions, we have feelings. So, all of these things combined is what produces the best data and the best that was that was put on. So here warning being given threats being given.
Next first call her the sabini either either law say meeting the professor has been instructed by law now say this I've told you the story, some threats have come and I want you to say these words What are these words have he severely This is my Sabine, Sabine meaning my path, my path, my Sunnah, my methodology, all of these things could be mentioned them you can say you know, this is mean hirjis is tunity to study up all of these words to kind of reflect the same meaning which is that Islam is my way. This is the way I this is my way my path. Is this this Islam, everything I've just told you, okay, there are a lot. This is I call to this, what do I call to Allah? A call to a Lost
Planet Allah. How do I call to Allah, Allah bossy, Ratan, upon basura. To meetings to proceed on here. One meaning about dimension means Allah zero means Allah Leah pin with great certainty, conviction, passion, you know, what I call to Allah? It's not one of those dry things, you know, puts people to sleep. No, when I go to a lab, and I have full conviction. I want no by Islam. When I talk about Islam, I'm just not just giving information. I'm put my heart and soul into the other thing. That's one meaning and he said the most.
The most troublesome person is a person like personal certainty. He came up in second view, measure webinar shoot and others is out of the sea. Latin means Allah, how upon evidence means
when I talk about Islam, I don't talk about Islam. Like I think Islam is a religion of peace. And I think Islam is good for you. And I think the way you prays five times a day, I'm just guessing here. No, no, Allah vasila means upon evidence, sound knowledge, evidence based approach to talking about Islam. Yeah, what I say? I'm not saying based on my whim, I'm saying based on knowledge, Allah basura T, because they said that the you know, from basilar comes from, you know, Basra we mean culture like site. Yeah. So what does site have to do with evidence? Well, they said the person who has evidence about something is like he can see the reality of that thing better than everybody
else, because he's got evidence. I know what happened because I've got the evidence with me, so I can see
what happened actually happened. The other thing is that you know, when last talks about the man in the Quran, what word is allow us to talk about human and to hate. It doesn't use the word though. He
uses another word, like a similar tude
though I hate to Allah is like, what
Now no one seems is like a reoccurring word in the Quran used to refer to the hate as well as a recurring word in the Quran referring to goofer
No, no, no light there, though hate to Allah is light. And here are the evidence with which you're supposed to call to is Allah vasila something that you can see or gives you sight? They all links in, like, Islam is a light, color people with that light and that light is evidence as opposed to Kufa which is darkness here darknesses In fact, so Allah vasila teen means I call people to Allah based on knowledge and evidence, okay, not based on whim and fancy my understanding, though, is based on evidence, Anna, me the process Allah, I do that what many and those who follow me. multinational law said the people that follow the process that I'm the best in this meeting,
according to a law with evidence were who the whole affair or Rashid in the rightly guided whole affair in Abu Bakr Siddique, an armored and earth man and Ollie are the louder
they were the best in doing this. And the best of the best out of them was a worker. So they called the louder and he was the best in this. And he said that this teaches us that every single person, if he wants to be a true follow up the processor them, they need to do this one thing, which is this one thing called people to Islam, based on knowledge, base of knowledge, anyone as far as to say that people that don't call others to Allah based on knowledge, they don't have any right to say that they are true photos of him. Even he said, if they're from his own blood lineage
is really, really hard. I'm making a point here that Allah wants us to call people to Islam based on knowledge. Okay? Now this, the question arises about Dawa, like what's the outcome of that? What is the ruling on doing that? What do we all have to be people that own those tools on the street? So like, what is this like, I want to be a tree full of the cylinder or not, and have the ability to surmount
The problem is our understanding of that. What does it mean? That power is done with the tongue as well as the lips? What do you mean tongue? Well, you can talk to someone about Islam. It shows someone Islam, show somebody Islam with your limbs. So is explicit and implicit, explicit, as obvious token someone Islam they ask you a question or you explain to them about Islam. Explicit is understood. Implicit is what we kind of miss sometimes, you know, like useful Islam. He was called by the two prisoners that they saw him to be of the who
Miocene we see to be of those excellent people meaning excellent and conduct according to one interpretation. And the same thing about the brothers when they said, honor, don't take Binyamin take one of us instead of Binyamin Indeed, we see to be one of the
martini and again, Marcin again. So his character was exemplifying Islam, meaning through his good character and conduct he was doing now. Okay, so which means we can do our everyday work at home, via the internet, on the streets, wherever.
So the ruling, what is the ruling, though? Is it something I can do like on a Saturday and Sunday and Monday to Friday? And that's my time, Saturday, Sunday. And last time? What does it mean exactly? I'm not actually explains. He said that. Regarding the ruling of Dawa, what is the ruling there what we know is that in the early days of Islam, when the president of first start to make his call, then doing that was an obligation upon every single individual upon every single individual in federal allowing every single individual had to do the hour. And that's why the person who said ballyhoo Andy wallow, and communicate or propagate from me, even if it's just one I, even if it's
just one, every single Muslim had to do that. They had to go out there and tell people or Islam either just through the character or explicitly whatever it was, according to the person's ability, some can able to do more, some are able to list whatever your ability you have to do. You have a choice. And then he said later on when Islam grew and became dominant, and people could see what Islam was and the message of Islam was clear, like when the Muslims in Medina and now it's clear who the Muslims are what they believe, and I can access it. Then it became fabric effect.
became an obligation a communal obligation. Some people still had to go out the activity of propagate Islam, as well as Pousada citizen, Ron Walter cominco. De Ilha de Marana, Bill Murphy, and
Alison, Ron. And let the arise Ming come from amongst you, oma people who will call to good, who will enjoy and you know, what call to what is hired in join, which is marrow, which is good, and prohibit people from doing wrong things.
So Ming come from mongst you here now that Islam has become dominant? Now, some of you are still obliged. So it different from time to time, basically, that's the point he's trying to make. And I think that's very interesting, because in our times, if someone was to say is Farooqi, fire, some people are blind to the others. If they're doing it, you don't have to do it.
Then it may not make sense because even if those people are doing it, are people
do people still understand Islam? People understand what true Islam is right now? Or are they misinformed about Islam?
Mostly misinformed? Isn't it mostly is the Fox News stuff of Islam that people understand.
So if those people who are doing that
are not able to make sure that Islam is being understood properly, then what it means is that those people are not doing enough, or they can't do enough. If that's the case, then it means that us people are then part of those people mean, we have to enjoy, you have to work with them. Yeah, up until the understanding of Islam, which is prevalent in society becomes sound and correct. Yeah. So it might not be productive to say, what is the hook of Tao? Is it for dying? Every single one of you has to do that? Or is it just a communal obligation? Well, to be honest, it depends on the situation. Yeah, this way, I'm naturally saying it depends on situation. If you're living in a
Muslim country, and people know about Islam, and they can access Islam and study Islam or the rest of it, maybe there you can say well, is Faruqi fire can be an obligation, but living in these times in the West, you know, Islam is being attacked all the time and Muslims are being defamed and Islam and the message of Islam is being twisted and corrupted, then it's probably closer to being found on every single person than it is to being felt on certain people, isn't it? Yeah, this is how we understand this Okay. Then Allah subhanaw taala after saying that, as for the Prophet, tell people that you call to Allah upon your knowledge, or upon or with conviction, you as well as those that
follow you silverhand Allah, then say Subhana Allah, this seems to be like not really connected, but it is because Allah is saying, tell people about me. Okay, call people to me, mean to embrace Islam and to submit to me and say Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah means and tell people that I am perfect. No imperfections whatsoever, I am free from all those rubbish things that people say about me. Okay, so, a lot. So go out there and tell people what is okay. These things that you say about Allah is a son, he has daughters or that there is no God because if there was a god, why is the injustice in the world all of this rubbish that people say, you to go out there? Subhan Allah, meaning these
things are wrong. You shouldn't be saying that about God. Let me tell you why. Okay, so that's the part and parcel of that our what ma Amina was she came and then tell people that I am not of the machinery
and the processor does he really just say that? I'm not emotionally cool. Today? No, he's not emotionally cool. Of course. So like, Why? Because the person I'm being told and tell them also, you're not emotionally cool.
I'm not have you guys I'm not mushnik like you guys.
They know the uniform Michigan. Why was the fight and this is?
Okay, so you dissociate yourself from them?
Yeah, so you say I've got nothing to do with you whatsoever. Okay, so they already know that you do. You don't have anything to do them. Why should I go ahead and say that, why should be explicit about the
level? Okay. Emphasizing high level? Yeah.
Okay, so he's saying you have to make it public.
What it means to be a true worship of Allah? Okay, so you're saying you need to totally distinguish you guys day and way over here? Why not nothing like you? We have our own values, our own beliefs, all the rest of it.
Yes, this is close to the answer, which is to basically publicly say, we are, unfortunately.
very different to you. Okay? You think unfortunately for us, fortunately. But that's the case. We're not similar in any way, we might have some similarities on a human level, but the reality is that when it comes to beliefs, and values, we're very different. You know, and that's a tough message to give, isn't it? Like it's not it's a message that's gonna get you in a little bit of trouble saying those kinds of things. But it's necessary. And Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam said exactly the same thing mama and we know we should again
no way like you wish to be gone No way. Nothing to do with you whatsoever. Is it really necessary to go to that extent? Or law saying yes, there is necessary when the time is right. You have to work towards this. Will you make the explanation of Islam clear cut with compassion and love? and say I'm sorry, I can't be part of this combo of this whatsoever.
In the show, we stopped here for Salah
we got how many minutes?
Okay, I'll count five minutes to Sharla and then after sort of we shall we'll have some refreshments. We'll finish that there's the two lessons we learn here. Notice here Allah subhanaw taala says Paul had the CBD. This is my Sabine my path anyone know the plural of Sabine?
Subaru. Subaru Subaru means paths. So Allah subhanaw taala says to the person who say that this is my path, one path, and not many, many different paths. You've heard this type of rhetoric before, like, you know, whole path leads to God, you know, called
God down with Islam and all paths leads to God, you know, my path, you have your path, you know, while Salah.
It's not quite like that. Or the other narrative, which is like the postmodern narrative, which is that, you know, truth is relative. Truth relative, right? Is or this is all, it's all relative. Do you know what that means? The sound some people it sounds catchy and as truth is relative. Yes, true. Actually, your perspective, my perspective? Yeah.
Well, that actually means like, I can believe that there's a God but it's up to you. I mean, this is your perspective on things.
This is very, very problematic to say it's all relative, because that means that there is no such thing as abstract truth is no thing which is the truth, regardless of what people say what they think, you understand that. This is what the postmodern narrative is, there is no such thing as abstract truth. So when you process them is being totally foolhardy severely, we're being told that there is only one path out there that leads to got only one path. All the other paths might have pseudo truth might have a bit of truth might have some goodness in it, but the reality is that which partly can lead to God's pleasure. Many parts know Seville, only one part Serato monster team Sirat
one path that is straight going to Allah subhanaw taala not many paths, which teaches us that truth is not relative. Yeah, there is such thing as an abstract truth. Okay, belief in God, who is a messenger? Well, these things abstract truth. Some things may be relative, but there is abstract truth, which is the truth, regardless of what people say. So that's the first thing.
And the second thing is, okay, so you said, you know, we should do our upon evidence, according to our capabilities. Fine. So what happened is, someone asked me a question, and I really don't know what to say, What do I do then? To try and wing it? Or try and kind of make up an answer on the spot? or What should I do exactly?
know, if you don't know, slavery? I don't know. And this is parlour some people unfortunately, find it very difficult to say this. I don't know. It's a good question. I'll find out. I don't actually know right now. No problem whatsoever. This is the implicit understanding Allah saying cool to my way or call to Allah with evidence means if you can't call to Allah with evidence, then say, I don't have evidence right now. You know, I don't know. I'll go on. I'll go and find out. The problem is, it sounds so simple, isn't it? You don't know what to say you don't know. The problem is the ego. Ego comes in with arrogance comes in. You think in a loose face.
But this is the Islamic way. The Islamic culture, humility, humility. You're upon the truth just because you can't answer this one question doesn't mean Islam malaria, the villa is not valid, is your understanding isn't up to scratch your knowledge? And I'm scared to say I don't know. Yeah.
And you know the story, my mom and grandma and man came to him from far distance and he said, I have the he said 37 questions or 40 questions. And to a great many of those questions, Mr. Malik said,
I don't know. He said, okay, from so far away to ask you these questions. I gathered this question for all my people in my village. And you said
well, should I go and tell them he said tell them about Malik said
I don't know
I mean, there's no Shana so me in saying that I don't know if I don't know. Yeah. Anyway, these to listen to Dan Sharma will continue after the dose. So practical hamburger should allow us the Furukawa to break.
Off the loss of Hannah dalla tells the process I'm just saying this, that this is my message. This is why I call to Allah upon evidence me. And those Follow me, male lawmakers from those people. So hon Allah, Allah and then he says how the law meeting I call to Allah, I invite you to embrace the man in Allah subhana wa Tada. And also, I say so hard Allah, I declare that Allah is perfect and has no imperfections as well. These things that people say that they do, they have no right to do that right to say that. Well, man, I'm in a machine, I'm gonna make it very clear. I'm not of those people that are mostly corn, me. And you were very different, very different in many ways. And
that's something I need to make clear to you all. So this is like coming in the middle of the passage was that's known as juvenile monetary law. It's like in brackets in brackets are lots of palletizing there. So before this, if you rewind, the message is essentially a profit.
Now that the story has been revealed, unfortunately, what you'll find is most people still won't believe
open bracket in this, however, continue on the message. unrelentingly don't let that faze you don't put don't make don't let that put you off, continue on saying how he severely of 100 close bracket. And as they reject you now, others came off before you as well. prophets messages just like you and they also rejected they were also rejected as well. So this is like in brackets, this is coming in the middle. Okay, saying that even though I'm telling you most people are gonna reject it. continue on. However, most people before also same situation. Okay. Same situation. So the next verse 109 woman, salami publica, La Jolla new la bien, para la, this verse, or this part of the verse, Allah
subhanaw taala tells us essentially three qualities that every messenger had three qualities. Okay. And in saying these three qualities, Allah is giving a message to the process of them that look, you are one of those messages, you also have these three qualities, okay, so you're no different to them. And one of the reasons I stated this is because one of the things that police would say is that you're not a prophet.
If you're a prophet, prophets are different. And if you're a bidder, you want innovation. That's what the word that they would use. You're different. You're not from the line of profits. You're just making things up. So here lots of palaces affirms what all profits were like three traits. And those three traits can be seen in the messengers or laws, as well, which clearly shows that he's one of the prophets and he's not making things up. What are they? Well, now I will send and we have not sent me carbonica before you, meaning our messenger before you illegible. And number one, except men knew he lay him that we
did washy to them that we gave revelation to them. Mim Cora,
from Cora from the people of Cora is the proof of area, area means city basically, city as opposed to the desert as opposed to the Bedouin life. So those are three traits each and every messenger has always had, number one, they have been men as opposed to women. Okay, and this is the position of Maha saloon. jumada. Allah never sent any prophet tests. There are no female prophets ever before. There is true that some like the husband, I believe, has said that Mario is was a prophet of Allah or prophet s rather
But that is something strange, not something I've said before. Rather The case is that Allah is only given prophecy to men and not to women. And as even as you said this for a very good set of wisdoms, there's a lot of wisdom behind that. But regardless about the wisdom, we don't want to even get into that. The fact is unnecessary. Men that they will all men.
One of the reason why the confusion occurs is because Allah inspires the mother of muscle. Islam inspires me to do certain things there is verses that show Allah as communicating to these women. So then the question arises, well, if Allah communicated to them, doesn't that make them prophets? No, there is a difference between washi and in ham, what he is revelation. And alarm is may inspiration, inspiration, the two different things revelation and received revelation makes you a prophet. As for inspiration in harm, it doesn't make you into profit. So number one, they were all men, as opposed to women. Number two, receive revelation. Okay, they receive Revelation, Revelation, additional
forms, dreams, okay? And the different varieties of direct revelation that they received as well. Like our promises, and we said that the most difficult was when it came to me like the ringing of a bell. mean, it was reverberating assigned to me and causing me a lot of a lot frustration, a lot of agitation, very difficult for ministry sweating his bodies to become heavy physically. So that's number two, that they were received revelation men who received Revelation, Revelation men,
from towns from the people of the town, as opposed to you from the Bedouins. Now, that's interesting, because you're comparing basic people that live in villages to people that live in cities. It is good and bad on both sides, right? But Bedouins who are Bedouins Well, what we know from the life of the Priscilla Bedouins, the people that are simple minded, they're not, they don't have the best Code of Conduct character, like the Hadeeth, in which the bedridden comes into the mystery of the present sort of lifts up his garments and urinate in the corner of the masjid. And then everyone wants to, you know, turn him off. And the President says, No, just get a bucket of
water and pour it over, and then explains to him about Islam and the fact that you can't do this in the masjid. So people, they simple minded.
They don't have the best character, etc, etc. And that's understandable, because what is a bedwin? A bedwin is someone who lives in the middle of nowhere by themselves, they don't have interaction with society, and our interaction with other people. So when you don't have that interaction with every, you know, people on a daily basis, you don't really not act with other people, you know, you're a rough person. So is that a good thing? Well, not for profit, a profit needs to be of the best of people, most civilized, educated, cultured type of person. So as the processor Was he a better way nor was he from the city.
So city if the city of Makkah, here for the town of Makkah, so in all three grounds, he's exactly the same as everybody else. Why then are you rejecting him?
Brothers in the back is happening, doughnuts got the better of you.
Well have mercy on you. So all three grounds, he is the same. He is a man received revelation and from the town Flm your serum. Now Allah addressing those who should go on and all those lights of Flm Yes, you do they not Yes, you fill out go around, travel around for young guru and see k for care now. Tibetan levena mean covering see what the fate was of those people from the past, meaning disbelievers what happened to them in the end? Like the nation of Sol, La ceram happened? What happened to him? He was an Arab prophet. Okay, you know about him. You know about the mood and you know about the ruins of the mood. You can see that on your travels.
Do you reflect over that I was wrong and you Flm
now Flm is a question of in car. It's a type of questioning where lies showing his contempt and anger. Why don't you do this one thing go around and see the fate of those people in our time, the same thing. Example The pyramids in Egypt, I mean, that's a civilization that was last destroyed, wiped out what happened? Why can Pompei and also in in Italy as well. Okay, there's different places that you can go to that you see the ruins of old civilizations, like doesn't anything click in your mind what happened to those people, all of a sudden they were destroyed, like, you know, in, in Rome, and in Pompeii, those are places where you can see nations were destroyed because of a
natural, natural disaster. So all of those people wiped out. I mean, do you reflect over that? And if you did reflect over that, you'd come to the conclusion. Those people rejected their messages. And so they were destroyed by me.
You're going to do the same thing. What's going to happen to you? Yeah, this is the message that's being given reflect what Adele Hirata hyrulean, Latina taco and as for the Tao of the Akira, the home for the abode of the life to come, it is far better. For those that have Taqwa have God consciousness, may Allah make us from those people. So it's like Allah, first of all talking about the qualities so silly. Don't look at the fate of other people and set themselves up. As for you believers, is a tough time, people rejecting you, life as a as a Muslim has become very difficult. Focus on the life to come. Here focus on the lifetime is going to be much better than this life. So
much joy to have, okay, focus your mind on the hereafter. That is the time when you will enjoy yourself. This is a time of testing tribulation. On the flip side, while other the hyrulean Latina taco is sending an implicit message to the disbelievers that in this life. You might be injuring yourself, but just like it's going to be much better for the believers is going to be much worse for you for worse than you could ever imagine. So there's like a double message being given flr giacalone do you not then understand? Will you not use your intellect to understand this?
Okay, now this is the second last verse, this this verse okay.
can be a bit problematic to understand properly. What is this verse had the either stay as a rustle up until the messengers gave up hope up until the messengers gave up hope. What does that mean? Well, Allah, Allah is saying, look, messengers came to all these people. And those people rejected them. And they continue to reject and belie them up until this happened. What happened? Well, the messengers lost hope. So they begin with our familiars nucleus Now 950 has given them one after the other 50 years How can you reach a certain point in your life where this happens? Where you begin to lose hope lose hope in who though this is where the controversy is in Allah like Allah, I'm losing
hope in Allah the victory is not going to come that you know Islam is not going to be dominant or losing hoping that people accepting Islam
both opinions are they're both gypsies are there let's go through it though. According to the first opinion, had the the status of Jerusalem up until this point was reached were the messengers began to lose hope in their people. Okay, what one knew and the messengers came to realization one here means to no unknown that they people could could the Boo could do that they people have totally rejected them. Yeah. And that point where they reached that point, internally, they kind of lost hope they gave up this evening, I'm gonna listen anymore. We come to the end of the line. Yeah, they're never going to change. It's come to that level. When it got to that stage that Allah says,
whom natrona then our Nussle came down here or came rather our numbers are eight in particular meaning, the destruction of those people and their, you know, punishment. It came at that stage not before know, Allah made the messengers the best of people reach that point of despair, before he then sent down his eight, okay, at that point john asuna, aka GM inertia and then new GM is to save Manisha whoever we wish. Look at the verse. Very interesting point here we should make he said, Look, Allah said, Look, Jia, we saved in the past, men Nasha whoever not we willed, but who we will,
in the present tense. So he said, and then we saved whoever we will, together as a combination of past present, past tense, and present tense.
A lot could have said for no Jia men sharp, and we save whoever we willed. It makes more sense. Now we're talking about the past year, profits came. They gave our long time people rejected them. They lost open them, a lot of help came down, they were destroyed. And Allah and Allah saved whoever He willed from the no law said and he saved whoever he wills
that broadens the meaning to encompass the future as well as the past to say that this would happen all over again.
you reject disbelief punishment will come when it comes like it came to the people before they'll get destroyed and I'll save a few people mean the believers. I did it then Manisha or do whatever
do whatever I was combination between past and present tense. So, the other view now, the other view is have that either state as a result when the messengers began to give up hope. Well, one knew and they
assumed, and whom coviu that they have been denied? They have been denied. What does that mean they have been denied me is that they gave up hope and thought that Allah had denied them. His help. Allah denied them his help seem problematic to say that it doesn't. What do we learn from Jacobo Islam?
What type of person gives up hope in the role of Allah? He locomole caffeine, the only people are given hope in Allah, the people that disbelieve in him. So now you're saying that the Prophet gave up hope in a lot?
Well, number of things. First of all, the word is a status and not yet
any one of the differences between the status and your Isa.
Okay, very good. One is to lose complete hope. And the other one is to almost lose complete hope. Which one is which?
Yes, yeah, he sent me to lose complete or did Allah say that the prophets ye Isa, what did Allah say is the answer, that is the answer. And this is a shout out. to him. Allah mentioned, he said, the different real estate as an ISA is de si is to basically push yourself to the verge of losing complete hope.
You almost lose hope. So the messengers almost lost hope that Allah would not send down his aid and support. And you have to kind of really appreciate that. Allah is saying that messengers were driven to that point that they started to think, maybe allow will not send is paid to us, that reflects on the difficulty that they went through, or reflects on the hardship that they went through that it was that difficult that the best of the best started to have these thoughts come into their mind.
And that brings us on to the question like, why would Allah subhanho wa Taala bring messages to this point and not a messenger Rasul all messages. And this is the way I did everything with all of the same thing. So slowly comes to his people, he does our
few people listen to him, except this now most of them reject he keeps on trying and trying and trying and trying and they just get worse and worse and worse. I think is what happens over time is the following messenger comes. Worship Allah, leave all of this rubbish to one side alone will forgive you allow will grant you agenda. They don't listen, listen, if you reject this, there's going to be punishment. Punishment might come now might come later on, bad things gonna happen to you. Time goes past, nothing happens. What happens to the people, they start saying?
Where is it? Where's the punishment that you said it's gonna come? Isn't it? Where is it? He said, the Alaska destroys, go on then show us then they start to think or maybe the message was wrong all along, isn't it that's what happens all the time. So the frustration and the test becomes worse over time becomes more difficult to handle. And to Allah says they reach the point where they almost lose hope. And then Allah sends his his support. So the question arises, why would a large law awaited up until the point that the missus is about to reach breaking point to send his aid at that point?
Yeah, could have said it before right? Yep.
Okay, yeah, that's one reason that allowance to raise them in terms of ranks and they reward by putting them through more and more and more. Very good. Any other reason specifically because the prophet SAW test and tribulations affect all of us and one of the wisdom behind them is, Allah wants the best for us in terms of our rewards, more tests, more tribulation, more chance to prove yourself more Richard rewards very good. Anything else?
No one's tested harder than profits. True But why? Because we're asking the question why? Yep.
Masha Allah, Allah say Mashallah.
They are our role models. If they are role models, we need to be able to say they went through worse than us and look at the way they behaved, isn't it? That's a true role models.
To someone who is not going through what you're going through is like it kind of easier. not as difficult as me my situation far worse. And so when I look at ya COVID Islam, he's eyes when white from grief. Like, that's another level of sadness and sorrow. No one can ever say, you know, I'm going through that as well. No, because you can say a portion of that you can't say look my is not
highlighted that one thing that no one can say this happened to me. That's why jacobellis is such a phenomenal role model for people going through depression and anxiety, isn't it? Look what he went through. He lost son kidnapped for 40 years, I don't know where he is. And then a second son, but still Southern Jamil. He's a role model.
So this is a sad This is a shout out Ramallah mentioned this, that because they examples, Allah brings them to the brink, here to the extreme. So they become proper examples. So everyone, look why they went through the worst case scenario, and they exhibited the best behavior. True robot is very good.
Now there's one Hadith, which you should know about, which is about the controversy of prophets losing hope in Allah that He would send the send his aid, how can that be prophets of Allah? One thing is obviously his status. That doesn't mean to lose hope means to almost lose hope.
I shall do louder on her and say, Hey, Buhari, didn't say Buhari, she actually.
she actually rejected the recitation could the Boo. You know, what you can see here cuz he said, This isn't the way that it should be read. Rather, it should be read the book with a shutdown it could do. Why? Well, because she said, because the blue means that the prophets realized that the people okay, the people have could we boo, have rejected them? And they've lost hope in them now. Yeah. Could we boo reflects that meaning? As for cool, the blue what we have here? A reflects of the meeting? And she says, the law. Interesting. I said, My other luxuries? Isn't law, the law
doesn't mean that. And she said, How can they think like that about the rub? Yeah. And this is the opinion of eyeshadow Donna, that the researcher should be? Okay, well, one could the Boo Jo, no sooner. However, other competitors read him nabasa de la Noma. disagree. No, the other recitation is there. So the way we understand the other recitation, which is that they believe that they had been denied the help of Allah is in one of two ways. Either, it doesn't mean they lost complete Hope it means they were almost about to lose. So secondly, and more importantly,
feeling that you have been denied the help of Allah is not the same as saying the help of a lower income isn't the difference? The difference is, it may come it will come. Maybe not for me, maybe for someone after me, isn't it? So there's a difference here, there's a different thing that our law, maybe the Help is not going to come? Why in my life, maybe it'll come after my life. So this is the point that I've reached now. But I think that it's not gonna happen in my life. So this is another way to understand it. While you're at do better sooner, COVID moody mean, and then Allah says, and our violent force, but as is like the wounds that you get afflicted with in war, bruises,
wounds, cuts, you know, that is bats, Salah says that those wounds are going to touch the disbelievers later on, they will not be able to avert themselves from it. Who are those who come in which remain people that are Muslim criminals guilty, guilty for doing many, many wrong things in their life. Okay. That brings us to the last verse in this surah after declaring that most people reject the message that we should continue to give the message despite that, and the fate of the people that do reject the message a lot and concludes this epic story by saying locker there can be puzzles that he may able to legally involve and indeed, for sure, in they are stories in their
stories. Allah didn't say in his story. Allah said in their stories, there is an algebra algebra means less than
m is less than or a moral is more than ever a constant, which means to cross from one from one place to another. So now I should say is that what am I saying is that if you read the story, there's so many like,
you know, there's so many details that if you reflect over them, you go from one place and then you can reach another place where you find a gym like this.
Use of the temptation of emeralds, Aziz. So she tried to tempt him and look at the situation. He was a slave to her and her palette. She locked all the doors. And this means that it's very difficult for him to get out of that. But look how he reacted. He believed that he was, you know, unable to do it himself. He needed Allah's help, which shows us that we should never think is never going to happen to me, it happened to him.
So you're going from the story, and you're going to another place which is the lesson here this is the root meaning our board and Hilbre another meaning of ebara is the root of l bar which means to tear shed tears. So law saying indeed these stories they are things which will move you to tears.
Every little Alba but not for every person, person that has an Bub people have album people have loved a low been someone who has a sound innocent intellect, meaning he's reading the story sincerely. He's not reading the story. preconceived ideas trying to find false No, he's got a blank canvas he's really wants to know what a lie is saying.
This part of the verse actually ties with verse number three, where Allah says National Novel SWALEC passes as they are last in the beginning of the story, we're gonna relate the story, what story is and of course the best stories. Remember, we had that discussion with Evan Taylor says meaning here isn't that the best story is the story of use for Islam. Rather, it means the best stories in the Quran and the same way Allah ends by saying and in those stories that I've just related one of them to you there is an algebra a moving lesson many lessons leoline Alba for those people who have a sound intellect, maca and Heidi thank you for all and this Hadees this narration is not used or it's
not made up you know made up fairy tale is not it's a real life story you like sometimes you
you don't watch films, but some of you may have watched a film once upon a time, but they say this is based on a real life story. Remember that? The expose exposing a lady there is long time ago they may towba
Oh, yes, yes, that's right. Yes. documentaries.
documentaries. They say at the end this was based on a real life story. Why did they say that? That when you read this is based on real life story would you starting in
very good makes you feel like you know all this really happened? Seriously. It's not made up none I actually happened. And I think holla about a real life story is that a person can tell that this is real is not made up. Have you ever got that feeling like someone telling you a story?
economy This is like oh my God, this actually happened I can tell this was made up.
He wants to learn is the one shaved off the story. amazing story. So there was a man traveling from Riyadh Okay, Sam Riyadh all the way to McAllister about nine hours journey right?
with his family in his car, going back many, many years, many years before mobile phones in fact, okay. He's traveling to Riyadh from Riyadh to I think your gender omaka many male journey car breaks down with his family. Now he's outside of the car. He's trying to fix the car up in the motorways not happening. Another man drives past just himself. He sees what's going on. He gets out the car. And he says Let me help you. The man says this is the problem with the car is not working. They're trying to fix it doesn't fix he goes look, take my car and go. I'm going there as well. You take your family or have my family with me of the Olympics. You cannot come there. Because none of this
is too much. I can't accept this. Because no, no go. I'm coming the result you with your family. You go. Okay, Tim, aka giving the keys he goes.
They are amazed like this man. He just gave us his car like that. So when they reach the destination, then the man comes there a couple days afterwards. And he took the phone number. You know, the landline, he phones and it gives him the keys back to his car and he stops recording and they say look, we're really indebted to you. And they said they were they were shocked. Like this man actually did this. He came back. We have to repay. So when they go back home, and that man's come back as though they found him back. Okay. And the man found him and the wife picks up the other man. And he goes where is Poland? Poland? He goes, she starts crying. Because Why are you calling
about him for you? Haven't you asked enough questions and you know why you keep asking why? And he goes, ooh, I just found to invite him to ask you want to save for everything. So he goes, Yeah, he's in prison now. Because she called he goes in prison. She goes he's in prison. He goes what prison? She goes isn't
prison, he goes and visits the prison
and the warden of the prison. He has a conversation with him. And he goes, Look, I know this man is here. I want to see why is he here? He goes, he's here because he's heavily indebted, and he was able to pay his debts on time. So he's brought into the prison. He goes, if that's the case, take this 10,000 reals and pay off his debt and free him. And don't tell him who gave the money.
Two weeks, they are that man who gave the money phones again, thinking that the man is going to be home now. He phones the wife picks up again, he goes away, so and so she goes, why you keep calling for you know, get your money from somewhere else. And he goes on arm, that man who came and I went to visit him and she said, he's still in prison. He goes back to prison. And he speaks to the same board and and the woman goes is Oh, my God, you came back. I'm so happy that you came back. Here's your 10,000 pounds 10,000 years goes, do you mean?
He goes well, the thing is, I'm not who to be more amazed by amazed by you who gave him 10,000 reels and didn't want me to tell him or the prisoner. He goes, he goes the prisoner said 10,000 reels will only take a small chunk out of my debt. Why don't you take this 10 tons of reels and free all of those prisoners who have smaller debts.
The man was so shocked. He said,
I take an oath by Allah that in the next year, I'm going to collect how much is he said about 60 or 70,000 yards. I'm going to collect it
and do what he said. So he keeps 100,000 freeze all of those prisoners, and the other man is to left and he takes a mission in his life to raise up all that money, he raised up all of that money, and then brings it to the warden. And eventually that man is free.
Now, it's unimaginable that someone who has such great character and and there's so many benefits to that story, but the fact is that that's true economic that's the real. No one could ever think of something like that, isn't it? It's a true story. And this is what a larger law is telling us a story of use of Islam. any sensible person who hears it knows it's not a hadith that is used or made up. Real life story. You can make up stories other you know, national posts, we are the ones that storyteller these Well, I can tell us the color the bane ad, except that they confirm and affirm that which was before meaning in the previous scriptures like the Taurat and the nd when it came
down. They had similar stories. And this caught on after they became contaminated and mixed up now is coming to confirm those things, but in better detail. What does sealer coalition it makes the seal of everything, everything it means it makes an explanation of everything. Does the Quran explain everything? Now, he explains every single thing of significance, okay? And the way it does that either tells us the details of realities of things, or it gives us the principles by which we can uncover the knowledge of things. Okay, so in that way, the field and the field doesn't just mean to explain it means to foster means that two things are joined together and then you take them apart
separate, so it's clear what is what. So the Quran has this power to make things clear. One of the things that makes very clear is a line between a man and Kufa. This is a man this is Cooper. And if you look at the stories, and the characters useless, long story, you see very clear, good characters and bad characters. Like every disease and useful Islam. Temptation affected both of them. Okay, but who reacted good. Well, that's clear, useful Islam. And it isn't just react good directed in the best possible way. immortalises didn't react badly. she reacted in the worst possible way. Isn't it the worst way you could be? He's running away. And she's running after.
He's denying it. And she is saying that he did. Okay, so it's like total opposites. Don't steal a cliche makes crystal clear. Everything, meaning everything of significance, and it is a Huda. It is a guide. It is a guide in so many ways. It is a guide to spiritually like it teaches us spiritually, how to be guided and be close to Allah subhanaw taala also physically so like to do the right thing, physically, like in a story is how we'll get the Seven Sleepers in the cave, young people. And last part on I said about them not innopolis so Alec will help in 52 and we'll be robbing him was eaten home.
Huda Allah said about those young men
that they were indeed young men like teenagers, but they believed in their own
What did Allah do? Because of their belief, despite the young age zudena, whom we increased them in houda guidance, what are the ways of increasing guidance is not just internally, but physically like he told them and guided them to find the right cave and wish they could sleep for 309 years without being found out.
There's only like maybe one cave in the hole, all those mountains that would be the right cave. Allah guided them to that Pacific cave. Okay, so physically as well as spiritually, and the Quran is not just a holiday it is. It is a mercy, compassion. We learn about compassion through useful Islam. Right? Well, he was so compassionate to his brothers that the three barley Coolio done so much bad to me. But you know, it's time to show mercy to you because you reformed people now. So it teaches us how to have mercy. And this the Quran itself is a mercy to us because through the Quran, we learn how to find our way into gender. Okay, so saraha in so many ways, for who we call me, you me known
for those nation for the nation that believes that has a man.
So with that, we come to the end of the period of use of us very solemn stories. So to do stuff, we asked the last panel to accept the efforts and I asked a lot to make us from an on those people that study the Quran, live by the Quran and teach the Quran mineral but I mean, they also like to thank the brothers and sisters here in Holloway, Massoud Surat initiative for supporting the discourse to provide the resources to film to make the whole experience the way that it was, like separate from us all Armenia Brahmin, Subhana Coloma habitica, Chateau La La Land to music
