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

couldn't carry

00:00:02--> 00:00:03

on he was having

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

to

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

operate due to a lot of people investing, last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.

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

This morning

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

is a commentary on Sora I mean Shiraz, sola,

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

which is the 95th chapter on the Quran.

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

And this chapter like the one that we have been commenting on the past sections of the class session is also from the meccan period.

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

As you know, or may not know, the

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

period of profit

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

was divided into two sections,

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

the meccan period and the muddiman period, meaning that a part of the London life is spent in Mecca as a profit. We spent 13 years there. And the latter part of his life, the last 10 years he spent in Medina,

00:01:21--> 00:01:28

migrated from Mecca to Medina. migration is what is known as the hedgerows.

00:01:29--> 00:01:38

And this is where the calendar we talked about the Israel calendar comes from a date from the year of that migration. So,

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

the prophethood is divided into two sections,

00:01:43--> 00:01:56

the meccan period the first 13 years, and the Medina and here is the second 10 years. Why this decision was made was for the purpose of

00:01:57--> 00:02:01

putting the laws which were revealed

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

in chronological order,

00:02:06--> 00:02:10

in order to be able to apply them most

00:02:11--> 00:02:18

effectively, after the time of the Prophet, God's peace and blessings be upon. The Prophet didn't derive

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

his profit.

00:02:22--> 00:03:01

It was done by scholars in the generations that came after that said, to better understand how to apply the law. Because the revelation, the quants did not come down in one book, as it came to profit before number of departments before I came down in one check it in the case of the crime, the final revelation of God, it was revealed over that 23 years from the beginning of the prophethood, right up until the very last year of the prophets life may God's peace and blessings be upon him before it was being revealed.

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

And the verses,

00:03:06--> 00:03:08

much of them address

00:03:10--> 00:03:15

issues which existed in the time of the Prophet Muhammad, bison and life

00:03:16--> 00:03:25

in Mecca, or in Medina, which had for the most part, universal values,

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

revelations

00:03:30--> 00:03:40

address issue which has universal by Universal in the sense that the issues which were faced by Muslims in Mecca, and by Muslims in Medina,

00:03:43--> 00:03:46

some of these issues are relevant to us today.

00:03:49--> 00:03:52

Those were, were addressed in Revelation,

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

direct revelation which became the core of

00:03:58--> 00:04:04

the final book of Revelation which was to be amongst mankind until the last day.

00:04:06--> 00:04:10

The things which were specific to the time of the Prophet Muhammad May God

00:04:12--> 00:04:16

will also addressed in Revelation but not in the Quranic

00:04:18--> 00:04:27

things didn't have universal values. Most of those things were just addressed to direct revelation to the Prophet, Angel Gabriel,

00:04:28--> 00:04:34

in which he would say certain things or do certain things to deal with the issues of the time.

00:04:37--> 00:04:37

So

00:04:38--> 00:04:42

this chapter, chapter 94, is from the early

00:04:43--> 00:04:43

Americans.

00:04:44--> 00:04:51

And as you said before the Mexican chapters generally speaking, address

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

the difficulties which were being faced by the delivered in Mecca. They were under a lot of pressure

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

They were a minority,

00:05:02--> 00:05:12

those who ruled the society were pagans, worshipping idols, who were opposed to the message of Islam, and who were trying their best to question.

00:05:14--> 00:05:23

So Muslims are under a lot of pressure. So many times the verses of this period would address the problem that Muslims are facing,

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

giving them advice,

00:05:27--> 00:05:28

how to handle it,

00:05:30--> 00:05:38

to have to stay firm holding on to Islam, and that ultimately victory is with the miniver.

00:05:40--> 00:05:45

Also, these revelations address

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

the oneness of Allah.

00:05:49--> 00:06:00

Because this was perhaps the most significant break with the pagan practices of Mecca. They worship God

00:06:02--> 00:06:06

in many different forms, whereas the final message

00:06:07--> 00:06:13

as the first message from God taught, that God

00:06:16--> 00:06:19

indivisible, without Father, Son,

00:06:21--> 00:06:22

or any other relatives,

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

but a single guy.

00:06:28--> 00:06:33

So this chapter begins out there in a shape on the rajim

00:06:34--> 00:06:36

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

I seek refuge in a law taken

00:06:43--> 00:06:46

in the name of a law is indifference, the Most Merciful.

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

Prior to meeting grants,

00:06:51--> 00:06:55

we are instructed in the Koran to seek refuge in Allah from Satan.

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

Because the Quran

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

is

00:07:01--> 00:07:04

the pure source of guidance for mankind.

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

And the satanic forces

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

would strive their hardest

00:07:11--> 00:07:16

to stop, stop human beings, believers from benefiting from that.

00:07:19--> 00:07:22

So we're instructed, Allah says local and whenever you respect to

00:07:23--> 00:07:24

seek refuge in Allah

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

protect us

00:07:30--> 00:07:36

to ensure that you will gain the benefits of the final revelation

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

alumnus Ross Nakamura

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

have we not opened for you?

00:07:49--> 00:07:50

Now,

00:07:51--> 00:07:52

the opening of the

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

opening of the chat

00:07:59--> 00:08:04

has both a metaphorical meaning as well as a literal

00:08:07--> 00:08:08

metaphorical meaning

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

that

00:08:13--> 00:08:14

a person

00:08:16--> 00:08:19

when problems are removed from them.

00:08:21--> 00:08:26

It is often referred to in different languages as getting things off one

00:08:29--> 00:08:41

because of the fact that when problems occur, one actually feels a physical heightening of the like you feel people when they have problems. You see them always

00:08:42--> 00:08:47

taking deep breaths because if they're having trouble breathing, there's a tightness in the chest
