smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad while earning he was having he

00:00:11--> 00:00:55

praises due to Allah. We praise Him we seek his help. We ask Allah azza wa jal for his forgiveness and for his mercy, to seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and from the evils of our wrong actions, whomsoever Allah azza wa jal guides, none to lead astray. And whosoever is left to go astray than other than Allah azza wa jal can guide them. I bear witness and I testify that there is no god no deity worthy of worship except Allah. Allah Who is the Creator of the heavens, and the earth and all that is between them. The one true God worthy of worship, full of love, I have a love of summit. Let me edit while I'm you will add while I'm here, kulambu, Khufu, one

00:00:57--> 00:01:49

and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon the final prophet, the Seal of the Prophets and Messengers that were sent, that was sent to all of mankind, to bring them out of darkness from the darkness of ship polytheism into the lives of tawheed into the lives of monotheism. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu it who was sent, and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon all of the prophets and messages that was sent to mankind? My dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Allah subhanahu wa to Allah tells us for relates to us the best of stories that we read in the end. And

00:01:50--> 00:02:12

Allah subhanho wa Taala says national and apostolica accidental costs that we relate unto you in other words are more hammers, I send them accidental costs, the best stories, accidental costs, been a hyena. a Laker has vocal earner, we're in kuntum in parbhani, heal Amina Warfield.

00:02:15--> 00:02:44

Allah subhana wa Taala says and we relate to you the best of stories through our revelations unto you of this core and and before this, you will among those who knew nothing about it. Hammer sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew nothing about these stories prior to receiving the revelation from Allah so plan on what to Island now, Allah subhana wa tada in his mercy knowing that human beings are weak,

00:02:45--> 00:03:24

and that they will follow their desires and their emotions and that there will be many forces different types of forces that will lead them astray. What did he do to help them correct the path and to be guided Allah Subhana Allah sends to every nation and messenger a prophet. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, one of Coronavirus, nafi, Coolio matin, Rasulullah, and arugula how much attainable powerful? Allah says that we have sent to every nation to every oma as soon a messenger

00:03:25--> 00:04:06

that is worship Allah hon to LA worship who worship Allah, what stainable power hoods and avoid powerhoop and keep away from power. Now power is every thing that is worshipped besides Allah subhanho wa Taala This is called any false deity. So Allah subhanho wa Taala he chose certain individuals who he blessed with what he who he blessed with revelation and responsibility to convey his message the message of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:04:07--> 00:04:51

And in the Quran, the Quran mentions some 25 prophets and messengers by name for an mentions 25 prophets and messengers by name. Does that mean that there were only 25 prophets and messengers that were sent to mankind? The answer is a categoric note that there are and there were many more profits and allies so Ajay actually tells us in the end he says, while our Santa Lucia Min catolica minimum man cosna alayka were men who men lamb Naxos I like he says that we have said

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

who's stolen messages before you some we have relayed or related the stories to you about

00:05:00--> 00:05:57

And some we haven't told you about them. So this is proof that there are prophets and messengers that we don't know their stories, there is another Hadith. And some scholars have classified this hadith as being of a weak nature a weak narration. Nevertheless, it is found in Slavic literature that states that the problem is attributed process and that he said there are lots of pan over to Ireland, he says 124,120 4000 profits, and from this number 315 of them were who were messengers. So, what Allah subhanaw taala sent, or commission prophets and messengers, they were sent to give glad tidings, they were sent to give warnings, they were sent to correct deviant IDs and false

00:05:57--> 00:06:44

beliefs. And so we find that the prophets and the messengers are like a light candles, they are burning themselves out, to give light to others to give new to others to give them guidance. So, this is the fundamental message of all the prophets in the messages, as I mentioned before in the ayah, is that people worship Allah azza wa jal alone. So the fundamental message is for people to practice to heat monotheism and to avoid ship policy polytheism that is associating partners with a loss of kind of what is now

00:06:45--> 00:07:18

600 years some 600 years prior to Allah subhanho wa Taala commissioning Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a prophet and a messenger to all of mankind. There was another prophet, a prophet before him, that the Quran refers to him as Isa, Isa, and this is the puranic name for Jesus. So, it is best for us as Muslims to use the name Isa the name that was used by Allah azza wa jal.

00:07:19--> 00:08:17

So when I mentioned Isa, I'm referring to Jesus, which is the English name of a salad salad. Now, the name Risa, the name of Jesus or I should say the name Isa or Isa himself is mentioned in the Quran some 25 times 25 times there is a mentioning of ASAP I need to sell em Raisa I submarine he's a sir the son of Mongolian and Maryam is his mother, Mary, Mary. We have an entire chapter in the Quran that Muslims will continue to recite and have been reciting until the day of judgment. It is called the chapter of Marian, Marian, Marian. Now Maria alayhis salam is the peace of blessings of Allah be upon her. She is mentioned she is mentioned in the Quran herself some 34 times. Maria Maria

00:08:17--> 00:08:53

salon is mentioned 34 times. Now. Let us begin with a chapter. a verse from sudak. Maria Merriam is the 19th chapter of the Quran. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, When goodfield kitabi meridian is in Tibet, that means Minh le harmattan and shafia. Allah says and mentioned. In other words, he's addressing homicide, Salem, he's saying and mentioned Mohammed, in the book, The story of Mary, the story of Maryam

00:08:54--> 00:09:34

when she withdrew from her family to a place towards the east, sharqiya mckennan shafia towards the east. Now Maryam Allah has Selim was known for her excessive worship. She was one who worship Allah azza wa jal loved Allah devoted to Allah subhana wa di and she was 15 years old. I would always be alone in the temple in a temple worshiping Allah subhana wa Taala. And the people would leave for her food

00:09:35--> 00:09:47

for her outside of the temple, and the only one who would go in was zecharia Zakaria, okay. Who is the husband of her maternal aunt Zakaria

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

and so Pamela at her her doorstep, they would be fruit that was not even in season. So fresh fruit that was not even in season would be found.

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

At her doorstep. And when when she was asked about this, she said this is from Allah. She would say that this is from Allah who gives to whomever He wills. And so we find that Madame la has Selim in one Hadith and one prophetic tradition. The problem so long it he was selling he said, when he said a time when he said Julia Maria, that is the best of the worlds women of her time was Mary and Mary. She was the best woman of her time. And the professor Long Island who was selling them said, well, hydro decided dunia and the best of the worlds women is Khadija to the best woman of the time of her time of the time hammer sauce. lm was Khadija been to Hawaii for the love.

00:10:52--> 00:11:01

Let's move on now and talk about the birth of very sad the miraculous birth of Isa and insulin, the miraculous birth of Jesus.

00:11:02--> 00:11:37

Now Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhanaw taala, since one of his greatest angels gibreel, Gabriel and a Salaam and he's referred to as a root, root and root literally means spirit. Okay? And he said him in the form of a beautiful man with no imperfections. And he entered upon the room in the temple, where no one but zaccaria as we said, used to enter. And he said, and when she saw him, call it in many,

00:11:38--> 00:12:29

many minca in a year. She when she saw him, she feeds Allah azza wa jal, she said, I seek refuge. I seek refuge with the Most Beneficent from you. If you feel Allah subhanho wa Taala. She's like she's saying to him, you know, don't touch me in any bad way. Keep away from me. Allah keep away. Keep away from me. So what did he say? He said in a narrow surah the key the key lucky hula man zakia he said, I'm a messenger from your Lord from your rub. Okay to announce to you the gift of a righteous son, hula man zakia. And he used the word a hug, because it's a Hebrew. It's a gift. A lot of allies going to now give Maria a gift.

00:12:32--> 00:12:36

So she said correlate. And your Coulee Dam on

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

the bus Sharon one and

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

she said she was astonished.

00:12:45--> 00:12:48

How can I have a baby boy? How can I have a boy?

00:12:49--> 00:13:06

A young boy when no man has touched me, I haven't had any intimate relations. How can that how can that be? No man has touched me and I have not been unchaste I haven't been an unchaste woman. I'm a chase. I'm a modest woman.

00:13:08--> 00:13:29

So then Giblin it he said m said cat Danica Carla buki who Allah Yeah, hey, you know, when he met Johanna, who he attended in St. Maarten Minerva, Khanna, Umbra Macedonia. So it will be you're upset. You're up your Lord say, that is easy for me.

00:13:30--> 00:13:45

And to appoint him as a sign to mankind and a mercy from Us, and it is a matter already decreed that it's going to happen a lot as our Gen has decreed for it to happen. It's going to happen.

00:13:46--> 00:14:07

So what did you do now? What did Gabriel do? jabril he blew, he blew into the split of the dress. He blew into into her and then she became pregnant straightaway. She became pregnant straightaway. And she remained in the temple throughout her pregnancy.

00:14:09--> 00:14:22

And then she took off far away to a place called Bay to lamb. What's Paco? bethlem she took off to bait lamb which is bethlem

00:14:23--> 00:14:33

for her mother who fantabulous at BB McCann and porphyria and so she can save him she became pregnant, and she took up with him

00:14:34--> 00:14:45

for her bilateral fantabulous and she withdrew fantabulous be he mccannon McKiernan Casa yet she went to a remote place away from the people.

00:14:46--> 00:14:57

Now on her way to Bethlehem to Bethlehem. She felt she was about to conceive, to have the baby and then the pre birth pains begin to kick in

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

and

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

destroy this drove her to the trunk of a tree. She came to the trunk of a palm tree, a palm tree. And this tree had no leaves and no fruits. It was practically dead.

00:15:16--> 00:15:25

And then she gave birth and began to feel the reality of what has happened and what the people are going to say.

00:15:26--> 00:16:06

So the reality has now had the shock. Oh my god, I have a child and I wasn't married. What are the people going to say? What are people going to start thinking about me? And she's very devoted and very one who physicalized our agenda. She's worried and concerned. Pilot listen to what she said. pilot. Yeah, a tiny bit too. She's I wish I had died. Yeah, Litani me to Padilla had work to NASA man. See, I wish I had died before all of this. And I had been forgotten and out of sight. She would choose she prefers to be big now than to be in this state, and forgotten. And that's it.

00:16:08--> 00:16:38

So she heard a voice now she hears a voice from beneath her. She hears a voice from beneath her for her Muta, ella zanni. And so he called out from below her saying lads are sad letters any meaning do not do not have any grief. You don't have any husband or the general Rokita sorry.

00:16:40--> 00:16:52

It says your work has provoked provided a stream and the stream of water unto you. Well, who's z Li tbg there are enough people to sign up with Ali

00:16:53--> 00:17:06

Gianni and shake the trunk and shape the trunk of the palm tree towards you and it will let for fresh ripe dates upon you. So if you shake the trunk

00:17:07--> 00:17:49

a trunk of a palm tree here he is the voice is saying to her, shake the tree and these fruits will come down dates will come first dates will come now, here of course, how is she going to move a tree? Okay, she's just given birth. She's weak. She's you know, she's very sad. She's going through, you know, all this fee. She's worried. Okay. So really, the movement was just something which is symbolic. It's not much she you know, because you try and move a palm tree, the trunk of a country you know, you're not gonna have any fruits for you know, you have to literally climb the tree.

00:17:51--> 00:18:00

So really, this is something symbolic, so right there and then Okay, there is a miracle. There is a miracle taking place.

00:18:02--> 00:18:18

And then, a call came out to her a call came out to her for America in a minute. I hadn't sakuni Nina, man in Soma, salon, aka Lima, Lima. See,

00:18:20--> 00:18:53

and if you see any human being, say, verily, I have vowed a fast song. The first thing here is not fasting from food and drink. But the first thing from speech from talking to anyone from talking to anyone. Verily I have vowed a fast and to the Most Beneficent, you know she's vowed to Allah, Allah, so I shall not speak to any human being this day. So she went back to her people with the baby in her arms, and the people said to her

00:18:55--> 00:19:02

sister of her own heroine is Arabic. The Arabic the English name for her own is Aaron.

00:19:04--> 00:19:40

Martin, buki McKenna buki, McKenna Abu Kimura so in one mechanic omake, Botha, yeah, that you know, a sister of Aaron, your father was not a man of evil. And no was your mother and unchaste woman. So now the accusations are coming out. What is this? You've got a good father, you are a good mother. What have you done? So, so let's see what happens here. And by the way with regards to her own, what does it mean? Oh, sister of her own? What does it mean sister of Aaron. And

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

there's been a number of interpretations of what this could mean a sister of how the process actually he sent one of the Sahaba to a Christian village called Magellan. During his time, he sent the Sahaba he sent the companions to the Tron and he received

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

To them the verses with reference. Okay, Teresa and the people at this village they said How is your How is it that you're called and says the sister of Haroon when he is a prophet who lived and died long before money. So how are they trying to trying to say, isn't there a contradiction here? When How long is a profit here just at lunchtime before Maria.

00:20:28--> 00:20:48

So the companions went back to the prophet SAW Selim and they asked him about this. And the prophet SAW Selim, he replied, don't you know that people of that time used to named after the prophets names, so she could have Okay, as some commentators have said, what is meant is that

00:20:50--> 00:21:28

that some commentators they said they could have been a person that was named heroin. I named heroin Oh, sister of heroin, or some companies even said, Some commentators said that how rune was very, very devoted to acts of worship, heroin. alayhis salam was known for his acts of worship. And Marian was also known for her devotion in worshipping Allah azza wa jal. So there is a connection between her and her own center. So let's move on in any case. So they said, you know, your father was not evil, your mother's not an unchaste woman. So

00:21:30--> 00:22:03

she then did what Allah azzawajal commanded her to do, to do cm to do fasting of speech. Okay, for a shout out to LA for a shout out, and then she pointed to him. So when I would speak to her when they would address her, she would, she would point the finger to her, she would point the finger to him for a shout out in a porno painful moment, and I feel Mahathir sabi. I said, How, how can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?

00:22:05--> 00:22:07

How can we talk to him? You know?

00:22:09--> 00:22:13

So he hasn't even attained the age of speech. You can't speak it.

00:22:14--> 00:22:48

So then can the miracle from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Bala, me, ma? He said and Abdullah, what did he say? He said, I am the servant. I am the servant of Allah. He didn't say I am Allah. By Allah in the law. He said, I am bad. I am the servant of Allah subhana wa sallam. So then the people went quiet. Just imagine you know, a miracle is taking place right there and then

00:22:50--> 00:22:58

and they were telling you to the you know people might be quiet. Did you hear that? Did you hear what we just heard? color in neon.

00:22:59--> 00:23:06

Neon kita Baba, Jelani Nabil I am the servant of Allah He has given me the book

00:23:08--> 00:23:25

keytab He has given me the Scripture, the book The keytab where what Shahada Nina via and he has made me what a newbie in here has made me a profit, not alone. I profit was Anthony nebia

00:23:27--> 00:23:51

where Johnny MOBA can come to and he has made me move out. He's made me bless it Wherever I am, while I was on it, of your sila, and he has enjoined on me Salah Sana is not exclusive to the Muslims. Salah is also legislated to the Christians

00:23:52--> 00:24:18

were outside me this sila was deca, Sala and Zakat and to give to the poor and to the needy. So here, he's saying that he's saying all of this now whilst he's in the cradle, while outside he decided he was going to hide. So for as long as I live, he has instructed me and enjoined upon me the Select.

00:24:19--> 00:24:42

And then he goes on and he says, We're about to run bhiwani that he while amiya, Germany, Japan, Taiwan Shafi and dutiful to my mother and he has also enjoyed the beautiful to my mother, and made me not arrogant and blessed. And he goes on and he says, was Sarah, a young man with a woman?

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

And he says, and peace be upon me the day I was born. The day I was born, was Sarah Malaya, Yama woollett to y Yama, Mo to

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

And the day and the day I shall die. In other words when he comes back to this life, when he sadly his salon returns to this life, okay, he will die.

00:25:15--> 00:26:02

And the day I will die, why a woman and many goes way over over here and the day that I will be resurrected, okay and the day that I shall be raised alive, in other words, okay from the grave, after the day of on the Day of Judgment. So, these are this, these are the words that ASAP alayhis salam spoke when he was in the cradle. Now Allah subhana wa Taala. He then stresses the reality of Isa, the reality of Isa and insulin for all those who have any doubt about him and his message, listen to what Allah azza wa jal says, that he carries momoyama Allah Allah have an IVP him

00:26:03--> 00:26:22

such easily sir the son of Marian, it is a statement of truth about which they doubt about which they doubt or dispute mcenany Laffy Taffy the new wallet in Sabah, Hana, Eva Cabo Monza in oolaboo.

00:26:25--> 00:26:42

And then he said, it's a proof it's not a knock Allah that He should be getting a son. So straightaway, he's closing the talk, that is about to come. It is not befitting for Allah to be get a son to have wallet,

00:26:44--> 00:27:35

Glorified and Exalted be He above all that they associate with him. When he the key this is what he said. He said, he said either Papa a moron for innama kulula who can fire Kuhn that when he decrees a thing he says to it be and it sets it be and it is confiar Kuhn, when Allah azza wa jal once for something to happen, he says, quote, fire Poon. So, this is this was in a nutshell, what happened with regards to the birth of riesa alayhis salaam. Now the Jews, the who have been we saw in the children of Israel did not want to believe they did not want to believe what they heard, and so and so said that

00:27:36--> 00:27:46

what I heard was magic and that Marianne is an adulterous hence they called her the adulterous and they called a sir the son of an adulterous

00:27:47--> 00:28:07

and they began to say the worst of lies all because I could not believe that he was born without a father. I couldn't believe that couldn't fathom the thought of how is it that he said alayhis salaam is born without a father? And again, why is this? The question is, why is this

00:28:09--> 00:28:33

such a big miracle to them, that he is born without a father when Adam alayhis salaam when Adam and he ceramah the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, was born without a father and without a mother. And Allah subhanaw taala he actually says in the Quran, he says, in my father, he signed the law he cannot only Adam.

00:28:34--> 00:28:40

That verily the likeness, the likeness of a said before Allah is the likeness of Adam.

00:28:41--> 00:28:47

Allah spirit Allah goes on and he says, Call upon whom you Torah, upon Allah who.

00:28:49--> 00:29:07

Okay, He created him from Torah, from clay from dust. And he said to him Be and he was. So this is not a no something to be totally astonished about. a lot. So we live can create, without a father without a mother without, without a father alone.

00:29:09--> 00:29:58

So then we find Isa alayhis salaam, he's now growing up. He's growing up in Bethlehem. He's very intelligent, very intelligent. And we know that he never we don't have any reports that he ever spoke again until he reached the age of speech. So it wasn't like he kept on speaking as an infant. We know that he spoke this one circumstance, we know that he spoke in that instance, but we don't know about him, okay, talking or speaking in infancy until we reach the age of of speech. Now, when we swai the children of Israel, they feed that he will one day you know, ruin and discover all that that they had built through their lies and through the deception and that he's going to overcome

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

them. So they

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

Wanted to eliminate it, he eliminated him. They wanted to eradicate him, get rid of him, okay. And so Pamela, his mother money and used to always, you know, take good care of him. And she was frequently taken out of the city out of the city regularly to protect him from the evil of slavery. So,

00:30:21--> 00:30:46

we move on now to his prophethood. Now, he sallallahu Sallam a sorry, his Salam Jesus was not given the Injeel. Now the in jail is the New Testament. The in jail is the New Testament. He was not given the in jail until he was 30 years of age. So he was now he's now 30 years of age, and he's given the engine. And

00:30:47--> 00:31:03

when he reads so when he reached the age of 30, really, this is what Allah azzawajal is now commanding him to up to preach, to preach Islam, to meet to preach submission and surrender to the Oneness to the One God Allah subhanho wa Taala heat

00:31:04--> 00:31:54

and and Risa also confirms the Torah and the Torah is the Old Testament. And he abrogated, okay and the the New Testament is now abrogating some of the teachings of the Old Testament. And he's basically made Hillel permissible, what was haram for them, for the children of Israel and his prophethood was to convey the message to the people have been what is striking only now, a salad is Sam's message was to the children of Israel in okay. And unlike Muhammad wa sallam his message is to all of mankind, the message of his of Muhammad wa Salaam Salaam was commissioned to all of mankind. He said, Jesus was commissioned only to ban him and there are many prophets and messengers that were

00:31:54--> 00:32:05

sent to Israel, because of you know, their continued corruption and misguidance and being misled by many around him. So

00:32:06--> 00:32:51

as I lay his salad was given many miracles. Okay, he was given many miracles, just as the Prophet Mohammed Salim was given a miracle, which is the Quran and other miracles. Likewise, Musa alayhis salam from before him, was also given the miracle of being able to, you know, place his hand under his arm, and then he would bring it out, it would be wise, and he stopped turning into a snake. Now he sat in his cell and by the permission of Allah azza wa jal, by the permission of Allah azza wa jal be in the land, he is named because Allah Allah, he actually uses that word, and was able to do several, perform several miracles from amongst the miracles that Raisa alayhis salaam was able to

00:32:51--> 00:33:17

perform, he would make a bird shape from clay, a bird shape from clay, and then he would blow into the mouth of this birthright from clay. And it would turn into a real bird having feathers, having bones having flesh, this was one of the miracles and he would show them this miracle, and they would disbelief and they would disbelief.

00:33:19--> 00:34:07

He was also able, he was also able to bring back the sight of a person who was born blind. Now, the operative word here is born, he was born blind. And this is a great miracle to bring the size pack of someone who is born blind, as opposed to someone who had this size, and then they lost it and to bring it back, that's easy to bring back easier to bring back then bringing back the size or to bring the sight of someone who never had the sight in the first place. So, this is known as the akama and Alaska color refers to that he was able to bring back the size of the akama with the one who was born born blind and he would do this he had this procedure of doing Muscle, Muscle, you know

00:34:07--> 00:34:24

just wiping and he would wipe and hence he is known as the mercy This is an attribute that is given to a Sally his seller and mercy and the word mercy Messiah comes from wiping comes from wiping it is also said that

00:34:25--> 00:35:00

as far as Christianity is concerned that he won't that he's the anointed one that he's the appointed one and when he was appointed, okay to be the king of these people that that what they would do to appoint someone they would they would wipe oil, olive oil, you say tone that is they don't, they would want wipe the olive oil on on the forehead. Okay, so but we know that from islamically speaking and mercy, he was able to just run and another miracle that he was able to perform was that he was able to cure leprosy. This is like a skin disease again, bye

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

performing this master His mercy, he is the one who would rub over a code the affected area. Okay. And the person would be able will be cured from leprosy and leprosy is something that people would flee from and run away from because of its contagious nature. But yet it still displays so he's now you know, blown into the, into the shape of a bird it's become a real bird. He's cute, cute with the blinds and the one who was born blind and cured leprosy, okay, but people are still disbelief and they still disbelief in his in the message that is coming. So he had another miracle and that he was able to tell people what they had in what food they had in their homes. So he was able to say, you

00:35:51--> 00:36:36

know, you know, your lunch today or your dinner would be such and such, he knew what was what food was in the people's homes. This is another miracle. It was given to a silent, silent, but still they didn't believe it, didn't want to believe in him. And then came the greatest of miracles, the greatest miracle that ASAP performed was he was able to bring the dead back to life. And we believe this as Muslims. And we know that this is all by the, by the permission of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And it is said and narrated that he actually bought back four people in total, that it was able to bring back four people in total from from complete death. Okay, into life. And again, Allah

00:36:36--> 00:36:39

subhanho wa Taala he mentioned for example,

00:36:40--> 00:37:19

in the case of the bird and the Quran, he says, What is loku? Mina, Nika Hey, as a fiery beginning, that you create from a failed claim, the life of a birth be his knee, okay with my permission, and he says, elsewhere what took but it will ask me how will abrasca be his knee and that you are the one who was born blind and the across the one who has they proceed with my permission? And he goes on and illustrata says, What is took visual motor, the kidney and you bring back huh? You bring back the data live with my permission, my league, so therefore,

00:37:20--> 00:37:28

Jesus, a salad salad is not gone, because he's doing it with the permission and the will of Allah soprano who were to Ireland.

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

Now,

00:37:31--> 00:38:20

however the disbelievers occurred, the disbelief is how do they see all these miracles? They see them as magic. They see this as they see this as magic for con la vena cava boomin home in hatha Illa. See from ob, Allah, Allah says, For con la de NACA woman whom those who disbelieve from amongst them, they said in Heather, in less movie, this is manifest This is click magic, as what they say. Everyone wants to believe, even despite all of these miracles, so now as for the believers, who are there, who are those who believe in a salad salad? Well, some of the ration stated they were 17

00:38:21--> 00:39:09

the disciples and however you and however you are the disciples, but what what is most authentic is that they were 12 that they were 12. And the disciples were a small group of Christians, and they find was still a little shaky, have a stool needed something to really give them that boost that Eman boost, okay, this happens, okay. Especially for example, when people enter Islam, Islam, the man might be a little bit still weak and they need to work on it. So the letter had the, they had the ISA alayhis salam around them. So they asked him for a miracle. They asked him the How are you? How they asked him for a miracle in the fall and how are you?

00:39:11--> 00:39:16

How are you and I said here is a recession of Maria Sanok Maria

00:39:18--> 00:39:42

halnya spotty ora Boca. de la Elena ada tamina Santa, they said they asked him a sort of Maria, can you load sent down to us a table spread with food from heaven? He sent them to us. We want this one more miracle we want this. We want a lot to send down food from the heavens so we can all enjoy the street.

00:39:44--> 00:39:59

Call a Tacoma. Hi, Tony straightaway Sofia Allah insha Allah, Fie Allah if you are, if you are indeed believers. They said we believe they said we believe but we want to

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

To eat from it so that our hearts can be content, just like Ibrahim alayhis salaam, earlier, you find Ibrahim before then he asked Allah soprano to LS for a miracle and you know the story of the birds being chopped up and placed on each portion on each top of a mountain. And then though he calls them and they all come together, and they are reformed as birth,

00:40:22--> 00:40:30

sorry, sir, he calls upon Allah, tada and it is said he calls upon Allah subhanaw taala. And he's wearing Whoo, he's wearing a woolen garments.

00:40:32--> 00:40:38

And this is a sign of humbleness, okay, and he persists in his Salah. And, and,

00:40:39--> 00:40:53

and then he asked Allah products to bring down a table spread with food, so that they may be for us for the first and the last of us a festival and aside from you, and provide a sustenance for you are the best of sustain this.

00:40:54--> 00:41:21

And, however, he warned him, I sorry, he said anyone these people if you don't believe, then what can happen to the people of sila could also happen to you and the people of Sonic prophet silent alayhis. Salaam they asked for a miracle. It's tailored to their needs. You see now the hawara Yun these believers they asking for a they asking for a miracle which is tailored to their needs, tailored to their needs.

00:41:22--> 00:41:49

Before during the time of silence, okay, the people of color they also they also asked for a miracle. Tell it to them what was the what was the miracle they wanted a camel to come out of a rock that was pregnant that had milk that had certain characteristics. Okay, and when it came out, they still disbelieved Allah subhanaw taala annihilated them. He got rid of them. So Risa is now warning, be careful.

00:41:50--> 00:42:05

So Hamza Illa, Allah, Allah Subhana, WA, Thailand, he brings down food from the heavens, and they all ate from it. And they remained believers, except for one of them. One of them, he said, he didn't remain a believer that we'll find out about soon.

00:42:06--> 00:42:47

Now the Jewish rabbis began to feel that they were going to lose the authority that they had over the people. And so they got together. And they went to one of the Roman teams warning him off, he said, they went to a Roman King, and they're warning him off a salad is salad. And they told him that Raisa was saying that he that he is the king of kings, and that he will take your wealth from the king. He feed for his wealth, and he ordered for what he owed it for. He said to be crucified. He ordered for either for a salad salad for Jesus to be crucified.

00:42:49--> 00:43:09

And so usually what would happen is they would crucify crucify a person, this was something that they would one of the ways of killing people is that they will crucify. And one day, by the end of the day, or by the next day, the person will die on, on cross symbol.

00:43:10--> 00:43:13

So, let's see what happens now.

00:43:15--> 00:43:32

Only three years into his prophet hood is only now he's 33 years old, ladies salon, three years of prophethood Allah subhanho wa Taala. He now commands for asef to be lifted to be raised up to him to be raised up to him.

00:43:34--> 00:43:42

And there are many different narrations and traditions in previous scriptures. However, we cannot depend on these sayings due to the lack of authenticity.

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

And we do have a Heidi, we do have a prophetic tradition that tells us the particulars of this ascension, this raising of aisyah at a salon

00:43:58--> 00:44:00

even adverse for the Allahu anhu.

00:44:01--> 00:44:02

He said

00:44:04--> 00:44:38

when Allah wanted to raise a set up to him, there were 12 disciples in the house where he said was at that time, and Raisa came out from where he was taking about, he came out with water dripping from his hair. And he said, there is one of you, who will disbelieve in me after he believes in Me 12 times he will just believe 12 times. Then he said, which one of you will take my form, which one of you will take my form and be killed in my place?

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

And he will be with me in the same rank who will be with me in general.

00:44:45--> 00:44:59

The youngest of the disciples, the youngest of the disciples volunteered. However, he said he declined the offer and asked again, once again, no one volunteered except for this young disciple.

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

He said, okay, you are the one.

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

The young man, it is said that the young men began to resemble.

00:45:07--> 00:45:22

The young man began to resemble a PSA or a celeb in front of the eyes. And then ERISA was then lifted up from a window in the roof through the heavens. He says, Now lifted up, raised up to a loss of power of the island.

00:45:23--> 00:45:25

The young disciple,

00:45:26--> 00:45:30

who, who now resembles Isa is captured and is crucified.

00:45:31--> 00:45:38

So one of them was captured. And yes, he was crucified. The 12 disciples were also captured.

00:45:39--> 00:46:22

The others were captured. However, one of them kept on saying that he was not one of the disciples. Number one, remember what he said said earlier that one of you will disbelieve in me 12 times and two would be made that he was one of the believers of reset. So there is profit he's one of the believers saying I'm not he's one of them, but I'm not it's happened to off times. It's happened 12 times. Now, the Jews what they end up doing with the disciples, they release them why there was fear. They will overcome by the fee that they released on the condition that they don't preach. Okay, and they fear that if I kill them, then this is going to create a lot of, you know, Trumpton

00:46:22--> 00:46:25

oil and havoc amongst the people.

00:46:26--> 00:46:37

What does the court answer? The Quran says, We're only him in paternal mercy Hi, Santa Maria rasuna, ma, Juana, Juana

00:46:39--> 00:47:00

and because of the same we killed the Messiah, he said the son of Maryam the Messenger of Allah, but Allah subhanaw taala says here he says, Why man Katana Whoo hoo Wah masala boo, but I did not kill him. But that did not kill him. Why now find Abu and I did not crucify him.

00:47:01--> 00:47:28

Listen to almost metallic continues to say why lacunae should be hella home. This is an important word here. Well, I think should be here should be here. However, it was. It was made a cake. It was made to a piece so there was a resemblance to Ashby. He was made to a piece of wire Lakin should be Hello. We're in LA Vina.

00:47:30--> 00:47:35

We're in the NAFTA foofy Luffy shakin, humara home

00:47:38--> 00:47:40

of one wanna

00:47:42--> 00:47:44

listen to Allah subhanaw taala says

00:47:46--> 00:48:47

and he says but I killed him not know crucified him. But the resemblance of Raisa was put over another man and those who differ they're in a full of depths. They follow nothing but conjecture. For sure. For surely that killed him not. Allah emphasizes that for surely they killed him not one Cthulhu Athena they never killed him. Allah goes on and he says Bal burapha who Allahu la Barbra who are families to raise, but Allah raised him up until him. So the story of the crucifixion is one. That is the story happened. But he sadly his son was not the one who was crucified, a silent silent Jesus was never crucified on the cross. He was raised up to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we know

00:48:47--> 00:48:59

that a salary his salary will return. We know that a salary the salon will return. What does Islam say about the return of a Saudi Salim the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

He tells us that the return of Isa is one of the 10 major signs of the coming of the our there are 10 major signs and one of the major signs we find in Sahih Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he mentioned the 10 he mentioned the coming back the coming back or the descending of Raisa he mentioned as the fourth major sign that coming to the sending of a salad salad. And so we know that any salad is still and at the moment he's alive and he is not dead. He is alive and he is not dead.

00:49:36--> 00:49:45

And that he will appear. He will one of the as I said he will appear as one of the sons of the major hour and he will kill al mercy.

00:49:46--> 00:49:59

He will follow Alma CF with the gel, the Antichrist and he will be the one who will kill with the gel. The posts are silent. He says he will descend and if you see him then know that

00:50:00--> 00:50:16

It is He doesn't dispute about whether it is him or not. And then he went on to describe. The prophet SAW Selim said he is neither toil nor short. A Salah his son is neither true nor short. He has a red face with redness in it.

00:50:17--> 00:50:48

His hair is fine. And when you look at him from far you will think that water is dripping from it. If you get close to him, you will see there is no water in it. He will descend at the white minaret at the white minaret of the Romanian mystic of the main mosque in Damascus in present day, Syria or a sham I should say Sham which is Lebanon and Jordan and Syria. This is a sham Damascus, he will be wearing two garments lightly dyed with saffron.

00:50:49--> 00:51:01

He will break the cross he will break the cross, which symbolizes that there is no reality to the cross and the worship of the cross and revering the cross and promoting the cross

00:51:02--> 00:51:31

he will kill the peak, he will kill the peak and there will be no jizya and there will be no tax and the jizya is a tax that is taken from non Muslims to receive protections, protection from the Muslims or those non Muslims living in the Muslim land to pay attacks so they'll go therefore the GCR is abolished. Therefore you are either a Muslim or a non Muslim. Okay, there's no more protection from the Muslims. Okay, this is it's now crunch time

00:51:32--> 00:52:17

and every religion will perish and so will that the Gen and as per one narration he will live for 40 years and then he will die and the Muslims will pray for them. Now he said that really when he comes back, he will live for seven years so he will live a total of 40 years. He has lived 33 years and his race to Allah subhanho wa Taala and then he will be on this earth for another seven years calling people to to heat up to monotheism and Islam and Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment he will call out to a set he will call out to a set he will ask him a question. What is Paula La Jolla is Edna Marina and Taku

00:52:22--> 00:52:28

Taku Tallinn acetophenone. Mia Ella Hey name in tune Illa

00:52:30--> 00:52:33

Allah subhana wa tada was a son of many

00:52:34--> 00:52:59

did you say unto men did you say unto people worship Me and my mother as true Gods besides Allah? Very clear question. Allah will ask him in front of everybody. Did you Danny, did you say to them do that? Did you say to them worship to worship you worship your mother man. Listen to the response that a Sally Mr. Lamb will give.

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

He will say Congrats. Suba Hana. Glory to you. Glory be to use apana Marissa Cooney an akula MLA Sally B malaise Sally behalf. It is not he says.

00:53:17--> 00:53:36

He says it is not for me to say what I had no right to say. And then it goes on and he says in Kotaku to muhfucka Island. If I did say that, you know that you if I truly said this, okay, then surely you would have known it for soccer.

00:53:37--> 00:53:49

says to Allah Murphy enough, see, you know, you Allah subhanaw taala you know, what is in my inner self, while Allah Murphy enough sick Arjuna within yourself?

00:53:50--> 00:53:54

I don't know what is in us. And then he goes on.

00:53:56--> 00:53:57

It says in Atlanta,

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

that you are the owner of that of the unseen of the height of the unknown. So, as you can see, he sat at his salon, he never, he never told his people, his followers to worship him or to worship His mother. We've seen also that the crucifixion is is is not a fact. But it's a fiction. Okay. We want to move on now and just talk about quickly. Okay. The, the the Trinity, the Trinity doctrine, the issue of the Trinity. Now, the three monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam all purport to share one fundamental concept and that is the belief in Allah. So panel data, these are known as the Abrahamic faiths, okay. And then Allah subhanaw taala is the supreme beam and that He

00:54:53--> 00:54:59

is the Creator and the Sustainer of the universe and we know we know this as we know this, so heat

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

And this is this concept of the oneness of God was stressed by Moe Sally his salon, in a biblical passage known as the Shema, or the Jewish creed of faith in Deuteronomy, chapter six, chapter six, verse four, it says, He, Israel, the Lord, our God is One Lord, as totally as what Moses preached on him. And it was repeated word for word, approximately 1500 years later by Isa, when he said in Mark chapter 12, verse 29, the first of all commandments is he of Israel, the Lord, our God is One Lord. So who is he talking about here?

00:55:45--> 00:55:53

And then Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he comes 600 years later, okay, and he brings the same message. Okay.

00:55:54--> 00:55:56

What he loves to call ILA,

00:55:57--> 00:56:12

and you ILA and new God is, Allahu La Ilaha Illa. That there is no god worthy of worship, but he has found in the parameter to Bukhara chapter two, verse 163. Now.

00:56:15--> 00:56:31

So the doctrine of Trinity is a concept conceived entirely by men, there is no truth to the Trinity, that is the concept of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This is something which has been made.

00:56:33--> 00:57:20

And there is even controversy related to the Trinity, both within and outside of Christianity. So even Christians within amongst themselves, they differ about the Trinity. So in conclusion, we can say that there is no sanction whatsoever from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah from God Almighty to be found regarding the matter of the Trinity simply because the whole idea of a trinity of, of divine beings has no place in tawheed because it goes against totally it goes against the call of the Abrahamic faiths of Moosa and a Sam komisar salon and the call of there only being one god La ilaha illa Allah. What does the Quran say about the Quran in the Trinity we find in saltiel matita chapter

00:57:20--> 00:57:36

five and n so dramatically that chapter five of the Quran verse 73, lafonda for Latina palu in ma Hasani pusa. Allah says they have certainly disbelieved. kapa

00:57:37--> 00:57:56

haka for oil Medina kaaboo, those who say in the Lucha fanous falletta. Those who say that a VA is the third of three. Those who say that Allah is the third of three. Okay, have committed kufr have committed this belief.

00:57:58--> 00:58:02

Why Ma'am, in Illa, Illa Illa, who Allahu

00:58:03--> 00:58:07

Allah, Allah says continues, he says, and there is no god except one God.

00:58:09--> 00:58:10

Why in amihan

00:58:12--> 00:58:44

coluna nyama son Allah vena cava, Moomin, Hamada boon Annie continues society and if they did not desist from what they are saying, they will surely afflict the disbelievers, among them a painful punishment. So those Christians, those non Muslims who say that Allah is one of three, who believe in the Trinity Trinity, they must cease to believe in this and believe in only one God.

00:58:45--> 00:58:51

Otherwise, they will be subjected to the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment.

00:58:52--> 00:59:10

Now, it's sort of money after Allah subhanaw taala affirms this sort of money that he said was a worshipper and service of Allah and he mentioned his birth from money and without a father. He then begins refuting those who claim that he has a son,

00:59:11--> 00:59:17

that Allah has a son. Listen to these words from the Quran. Allah azza wa jal says, work on

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

man who

00:59:20--> 00:59:37

work hard and they say the Most Merciful other words Allah has taken for himself a well as a son lacava gtam Shay and if you have come with an atrocious thing thing he refers it to sound which is atrocious.

00:59:38--> 00:59:44

Then saying that Allah has a son is atrocious, it that they can do some work to

00:59:47--> 00:59:49

pull out water

00:59:50--> 01:00:00

man who had the disease, the husband's almost rupture they from and the earth splits up.

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

And the mountains collapse in devastation. So it's like the earth wants to the earth the heavens want to rupture the earth wants to split. It's like it wants to do all of that because down the rock man

01:00:19--> 01:00:27

because by attributing to the Most Merciful, a sun, the heavens hate this the earth hates this

01:00:28--> 01:00:31

one I am a rough man in

01:00:32--> 01:00:34

Malaga, why am I am

01:00:35--> 01:00:36

I

01:00:39--> 01:00:55

and it is not appropriate for the Most Merciful that he should take a son. How could you say that about the creator of loss of pan of the island, the only one true God worthy of worship, that he that he has a son that he has a wallet

01:00:56--> 01:01:10

and elsewhere in the Quran in chapter four, certainly, sir, verse 171, it's going to read a lot smarter Allah says, Yeah, lol kita be latha houfy Dini home one a taboo Allah ma he.

01:01:12--> 01:01:35

Or people have this of the Scripture 100 kita the Jews and the Christians do not commit access in your religion or say about Allah accept the truth, in mlmrc, who he said no, Maria Mara su Ma. Allah says that indeed, the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary was a messenger of Allah,

01:01:36--> 01:01:47

but was a messenger of Allah. And he goes on Allah subhanaw taala in this verse, chapter 471, verse 171, and he says,

01:01:49--> 01:02:35

the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary was a messenger of Allah and His work which he directed to Mary and a soul from him, so believe in Allah and His messengers, and cannot say three, while at Abu Salah, and do not say and do not say three, it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God, Exalted is He above having a son, To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is on the earth, and sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. And we have a beautiful verse in the Quran, the greatest version, and as you could see, chapter two and verse 255, whereby Allah subhanaw taala says, Allahu La ilaha illa

01:02:42--> 01:02:54

Allah subhanaw taala there is no deity except Him. The everliving the Sustainer of all existence, neither drowsiness overtakes him, nor sleep, but Jesus used to sleep.

01:02:55--> 01:03:11

Jesus used to sleep, but Allah does not sleep he did not need of sleep. Okay, so how could How can also a salad salad? How can Jesus be God? Or, you know, as the trinity of stating that he is a God

01:03:12--> 01:03:47

when he needed to eat, and he needed to drink? That's like saying that Allah subhana wa Taala he's, he's in need of food and drink, but also patella is not in need of food, he doesn't need drink. He doesn't need sleep, he doesn't he doesn't become tired. Okay, and if you eat and drink, you have to relieve yourself. So are also the learn. Are you saying that alcohol also, you know, he relieves himself. The Alamo Mohamed coluna and Mr. Kuhn will ruin araluen Kabira. This yummy far removed is Allah subhanaw taala and above all of these prophets, Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:03:48--> 01:04:11

So, this is something that we need to also take into consideration. Now I just want to quickly want to go over a few more points in Sharla as I wrap it up and talking about Christmas, Christmas, is it fact or is it fabricated, is it true? Is there any reality is there any truth to this to the celebration of Christmas now?

01:04:13--> 01:04:34

Actually, we find that Christmas is a bitter Christmas is an innovation Okay, it is a concoction it is a heresy, it is something that has no basis in in in the teachings of Raisa alayhis salaam. And actually if we if we look at,

01:04:35--> 01:04:59

if we look if we read from the Encyclopedia Britannica, we find the word Christmas is derived from the Old English kristus Macy, which means crisis mass. Now, according to a Roman Almanac, the Christian festival of Christmas was celebrated in Rome by 336 ad 330s.

01:05:00--> 01:05:33

So really it's a bit it's a bit a bit it's a it's a bitter. And also it's nice that there is no such and tradition of the exact date of crisis birth. Now exactly what if you think about a person being born? Okay, when you born back then that there was no real documentation, okay, and people knowing when you were born, and he just was from Hamas asylum, we don't know there are different reports as to when he was born. We don't know when Prophet Mohammed saw Salem's exact birth it is. So in Islam, we don't even celebrate the birthday of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

01:05:34--> 01:05:39

So but what is known for example, is the day that Mohammed Salim died.

01:05:40--> 01:05:49

Okay. And that is actually the date that people were celebrating the moment for example, the promise of silence birthday, that is actually celebrating the day that he died.

01:05:51--> 01:05:51

Now,

01:05:53--> 01:05:55

if we would if we got one, for example, to look at

01:05:57--> 01:06:19

Christmas, it says here that Christian choreographers of the third century believe that the creation of the world took place at the spring equinox, then referenced as March 25. Hence, the new creation in the incarnation of was the conception of death of Christ must therefore have occurred on the same day

01:06:20--> 01:06:44

with his birth following nine months later at the winter, solstice, December 2025. The reason why Christmas came to be celebrated on December 25, remains uncertain, but most probably the reason is that early Christians wish the date to coincide with the pagan Roman festival marking the birthday of the unconquered sun.

01:06:45--> 01:07:02

Okay, the festival this festival celebrated the winter solstice, when the days again began to lengthen and the sun begins to climb higher in the sky. The traditional costumes connected with Christmas have accordingly developed from several sources as a result of the

01:07:04--> 01:07:29

coincidence of the celebration of the birth of Christ with the pagan, agricultural and solar observances at midwinter. In the Roman world of the Roman in the Roman world The Saturnalia December 17 was a time of merrymaking and exchange of gifts. December 25, was also regarded as the birth date of the Iranian mystery God Mithra the son of righteousness.

01:07:30--> 01:08:22

Okay, and so what we have here is that to enhance to enhance the appeal of Christianity among the pagans and to unify them, the bishop that a bishop by the name of liberius, okay, for chose December 25 as the birth date of Jesus, okay. Now even even if you look at the things that are associated with with Christmas, such as the Christmas tree, this is also another fabrication of the concoction. There is no reality in Christianity and true Christianity to the Christmas tree. And actually, there are some biblical passages that prohibit the cutting down of trees and bringing them into your home and decorating them. Okay, what about Santa Claus? Santa Claus is another concoction of a

01:08:22--> 01:08:53

fabrication another thing that, you know, has been entered into a Christianity is no reality to Santa Claus, you know, lots of lying going on to children. And, you know, Islam really is against and the teachings of the prophets of all against lying and deception and deceiving others. So Santa Claus is a bit of a Christmas tree is a bit out. And the whole of Christmas is a bit that is an innovation. Okay.

01:08:56--> 01:09:06

And we even have, for example, even one of the the, the churches of of Christianity, the latter day saints, they're against the tree and other innovations.

01:09:07--> 01:09:15

So as you can see, there, this is nothing but Chris Christmas is has no basis there's no basis for Christmas.

01:09:17--> 01:09:26

So Jesus added his tell him didn't celebrate it nor did his followers celebrate Christmas or anyone or ask anyone to celebrate Christmas.

01:09:27--> 01:09:28

So, therefore,

01:09:30--> 01:09:59

this is something that Christians need to consider and reflect upon. I want to move on to another point and that is are we allowed to say Merry Christmas or similar words? Now as Muslims living in the West, in a living amongst many non non Muslims or Christians, we often have them in the shopping centers towards Christmas time they will say to you and have a Merry Christmas. Are we allowed to respond? Are we allowed to say Merry Christmas back to them? Now Now we've just heard that really Christmas has its roots. Hey, from

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

paganism for from pagan rituals, you know?

01:10:04--> 01:10:49

So really, are we allowed to say Merry Christmas back to them. Now April came the great scholar for him or her lovable to Ireland, he said, congratulating the disbelievers on the rituals that belonged only to them is haram. He said it is prohibited by the consensus by the each map of the map, there is a consensus that it is each map to say, you know, to congratulate them, such as you know, saying happy festival to you, or may you enjoy your festival or Merry Christmas or so one. He says, Hey, Rob, you're not allowed to say this. And he said, it's like congratulating someone for prostrating to the cross. Because we know it's, it's a pagan origin, right? It's how long Allah hates it. Okay.

01:10:50--> 01:11:27

And so if someone was making saluted across any site to them, congratulations. It's like you knowing that he says, or even worse than that, it is. He said, it is a great, it is as great as seen as great as congratulating someone for drinking wine, or murdering someone or having illicit sexual relations and so on. And many of those who have no respect for their religion fall into this era, they do not realize the offensiveness of the actions. So it is actually you action of saying Merry Christmas is an offensive act to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:11:28--> 01:12:15

Whoever congratulates a person for his disobedience, or his bid on his innovation, or cover, exposes himself to the wrath and the anger and the anger of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is found in in the book, can I help him? Can I help him? So therefore, in light of the consensus of the Muslim scholars, congratulating them is forbidden, whether they are ones colleagues or neighbors or otherwise, okay. And if they greet us, on the occasion of the festivals, we shouldn't respond, because these are not our festivals. Okay. And in Islam, as you know, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we have only two reads, to read. And that is, it will further enable, and we are not

01:12:15--> 01:12:58

allowed to partake in any other aid apart from these two things. That's it, whether it's a secular aid, whether it's a religious aid, we are not allowed to partake in any rate, and what's the rate at the rate the word rate means that which reoccurs so anything that is reoccurring and its nature occurred, an event that is that reoccurs that the people assemble, and they congregate regarding it, and there are certain rituals that are practiced, this is an eight. Okay, this is an eight by definition of eight. So when the process I learned he came to Medina, and he saw he saw the, the unsolved, they were, they were playing some sport, they were playing, they were celebrating

01:12:58--> 01:13:42

something through a sporting activity. And he said, Allah subhanaw taala has substituted you substitute for you these days, with two days of April 2. That's it. He didn't say three, or four, or five, or whatever. So again, this is something that we have to remember, we're not allowed to as Muslims, bring Christmas trees into our homes, or to say Merry Christmas or to have Christmas gifts or to partake in any which way, shape, manner or form in Christmas, or anything related to Christmas. And so some people might say, But aren't you being a little bit too extreme? And to be a little bit too extreme? Okay. This is our dean. And it's about weather and Bharat mala and Bara, so

01:13:43--> 01:14:20

some people might say, you know, but we do this in the name of dalla, we can just say to them, you know, Merry Christmas so that they can love us more as Muslims, you know, and they always have their they already have a bad image of us through the media. Okay? We say that even no matter how much you try and listen to this, no matter how much you try to win over the hearts of the Christians and the Jews, you will never ever be able to win over their hearts. What Allah azza wa jal tells us in the Quran very clearly. supatra chapter two, verse 120, while I'm in Toronto, Ontario, while Amna saw one, meaning never one,

01:14:21--> 01:14:37

to one, and Massara had a big letter who never will, the who was the Jews or the Christians, be pleased with you and to you follow their religion and to follow their ways may lead the way.

01:14:38--> 01:14:59

And Allah subhanho wa Taala elsewhere and sort of column. So in accordance with column chapter 16, verse nine, he says, What do you know to the he know for you the he knew they wish that you would suffer? They wish that you would suffer in your position, so they would also soften towards you. They want us to soften up so that they can soften

01:15:00--> 01:15:43

Okay, they want to they want it to be a compromise. Just like the the pagans, just like the machete cone of courage came to compromise with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the last part Allah sent down the verses kuliah you healthcare if you don't say oh you have disbelieved let Abu matar I worship not what you worship well and tomorrow between me and you worship not what I worship, there is no compromise let them do recon. Walia de you have your religion or to you is your religion and to me is my religion. Okay. Do is to respect them as people as individuals that we communicate, we do business with them, do we still be nice and small? Yes, we do.

01:15:44--> 01:16:13

Yes, we do. But when it comes to rituals that are non Hispanic, that Allah subhanaw taala has not legislated. We have nothing to do with this. As for the ruling on accepting or giving Christmas gifts, what is the ruling on giving the gifts if you give a gift, it's like you are you are endorsing, you are endorsing a ritual, if you give a gift and so that you are partaking in this and acknowledging this. However, the same

01:16:14--> 01:16:49

cannot be said about receiving the gifts. Okay. The other man said that the basic principle is that it is permissible to accept gifts from non Muslims so as to soften their hearts and make Islam attractive to them as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he accepted, he accepted gifts okay from some of the non Muslims. Therefore, there is nothing wrong with accepting the gift from a non Muslim in the name of Christmas, and that is not regarded as participating in it or approving of it rather it should be accepted as an act of kindness

01:16:50--> 01:16:54

with the aim of softening the hearts to Islam

01:16:56--> 01:16:57

and we have also

01:17:00--> 01:17:11

been Tamia Mahalo to Allah He says, As for the accepting of a gift from them on the day of the festival, we have quoted above above and he mentions that I live in abject poverty was

01:17:13--> 01:17:19

thought of was brought a gift on the occasion of Nehru's, which is a which is a festival that was

01:17:20--> 01:18:04

worship celebrated amongst believers and non Islamic it's a pagan, also with pagan origins. And he accepted and he accepted the gift. Okay, what if the gift is haram to use? Let's say for example, you get sometimes what happens Muslims may receive as a gift, they might get a bottle of wine, okay, this happens happens. Okay. So what do you do as the bottle of with a bottle of wine? Do you sell it? You've also given us a gift. Now it is haram. Okay, if something is haram in Islam, it is haram to also sell it. It's haram for you to receive the value of it. If it is haram. Also, you cannot give it as a gift. You can't sell it and you cannot give it away. Let's say I'll give it away. No,

01:18:04--> 01:18:10

you cannot give it away. If it's haram for Muslims, it's haram for everybody, so you must destroy it.

01:18:12--> 01:18:53

So this is with regards to the issue of the gifts. Let me conclude with this hadith vannessa hit Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, this is the this Hadith, he said by him. In other words, by Allah, in whose hand Mohammed so it's our Salah, there is none from amongst the Jews and the Christians, the Jews and the Christians of these present nations who hears about me and then dies without believing in the message with which I have been sent. In other words, the message of Islam and self hate, but he will be from the thrillers of the fire.

01:18:54--> 01:18:58

Isn't that a very serious Howdy, very serious Howdy.

01:18:59--> 01:19:41

On I want to mention again by him in whose hand Warhammer soul is, there is none from amongst the Jews and the Christians who hears about me and then dies without believing in the message with which I have been sent but he will be from the dwellers of the Fire. So if a Christian or a Jew he is about the message of Islam, the message that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam family so he they must believe in the Quran and believe in all the the tenets of faith that we believe in align the angels and, and the scriptures of Allah. And we believe in the messengers of Allah subhanaw taala and the day of judgment and that's the belief in this if they don't believe in this and they die

01:19:42--> 01:19:49

after having received and heard about Islam, then they're above the surface in no uncertain terms will be the Hellfire

01:19:51--> 01:19:58

will be the health This is why it's up to me. It's up to be to you to continue to make our two hour

01:19:59--> 01:20:00

two hour break.

01:20:00--> 01:20:47

Brothers and sisters in humanity to our brothers and sisters in humanity, we have a duty to call our people to Islam. Okay, this is really what we have to do because we want the best for everybody. We want the best for everybody inshallah, to Allah, Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah says in Edina in the law slam, the dean, the sort of Allah or to Allah is Islam. Why many years after the firewall Islam, Idina Phelan, Luke Bella men who were who were feeling, fear of female hostility and whoever, whoever follows a way or a path or a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted from Him and He will be from amongst the losers on the Day of Judgment. These are words I leave you with. And

01:20:47--> 01:20:51

the last panel what Allah knows best are some of love and send them over to carlina BNF
