Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala MBR even more serene nibio now habibollah Mohammed in early atonement asleep and about my brothers and sisters in Islam in Santa Monica Morocco to lie about our cattle.
Now it's very interesting that it's raining outside today and we're going to talk about the rain and shut a lot of time and we left off yesterday talking about the thunder and the lightning. And we haven't really seen any thunder and lightning so far today at least I haven't. But Did anyone see the sky after our class yesterday so after breaking your fast race thought Did anyone see this guy? You guys saw this guy right? We were just talking about it and then Allah subhana wa Tada. You know, brother just tapped me on the shoulder and he said, look out the window and it's just absolutely amazing. So we'll continue to jet along to Hannah, sort of the light
who we left off discussing how Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, when you sub become wired to be handy when men are economically Fatty, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is being praised by the angels as well as the thunder when it strikes on the lightning strikes right so Allah subhana wa tada is to be praised and Worthy of all praise as we say at the beginning of sort of through Fatiha hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. So Allah subhanho wa Taala continues in in sort of the light, we move on to verse number 20 and 24.
Here Allah subhanho wa Taala touches upon the qualities that we should have if we want to enter Paradise. So verses 20 to 24. Last winter, it mentions the qualities of those who want to enter Paradise and to go through a few inshallah most Hello internet says those who, who fulfill the covenant of Allah and do not break the contract and those who join
that which Allah has ordered to be joined and fear their Lord, and are afraid of the evil of their account meaning you're afraid of the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala should you do something that is displeasing to him? And those who are patient those who seek the countenance of their Lord and establish prayer and spend from what We have provided them so give your son aka yours, aka Randall, muscle peddling sanitize all of these attributes in or characteristics qualities for those who want to enter Paradise.
In verse number 28 of us and we want to highlight goes on, to mention how our hearts find comfort in the remembrance of Allah.
Our hearts, find comfort in the remembrance of Allah. Allah Dena
Toma in Abu Dhabi, the Canadian
medical arena he taught in Oulu, those who have believed those who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah meaning your heart discontent with the remembrance of Allah subhana wa Adana, you have no doubts that a lot is there for you and sufficient for you unquestionably by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured hearts find rest and ease. And again, this highlights the aspect of depression and anxiety and you know some headlines a rainy day and people are saying, You know what, I feel blue field down, right and everyone is like, just want to jump in bed. Right? It's one of those days where you want something
hot to drink and sit under a blanket and just cuddle up in bed but somehow our last panel is ohana is sufficient for us. Imagine you just sit under your blanket and your turn on the recitation of the Quran. That is sufficient, right? That takes you know, a bigger place in our hearts then that hot chocolate or that you know warm drink that we would have on a rainy day. So Allah Subhana Allah to Allah shows us that the remembrance of Allah fulfills our needs in any aspect of life. When we feel sad, when we feel depressed, we feel down we feel stuck in the situations that we're going through in life. Turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and trust in Him and Allah subhana wa tada will make it
easy for us in verses 36 to 39 and I'm speeding through a little bit because we're going through the remainder of sort of glide, we begin and finish sort of ignore him. We will start and finish throughout the hedger and we will take at nine verses from zero to nine. So there's a lot to cover today inshallah. So verses 36 to 39.
Allah subhanho wa Taala here talks about the truthful People of the Book, and how they themselves are happy with the revelation that was given to Muhammad salallahu alayhi wasallam. So when the verses were revealed to the Prophet sort of longer and he was on them
so when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the verses to the Prophet Mohammed Salah
Wonga alayhi wa sallam, the People of the Book who were truthful, for example, the Najafi right the negus, who was in Ethiopia, right present day Ethiopia
avicennia, at that time well known as Abyssinia, he was happy and content with the message that had come to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Why? Because it was none other than none other than the true message that had come to him or that not to come to him, but that they were following from the Prophet that they followed as it is set up, right. So they were following the book, a previous book, and those who heard the book meaning the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the Quran, they were content with it because they found their hearts were at ease. And Allah subhanho wa Taala ties that in there as well.
A lot of mentions in these verses as well to continue also 36 to 39
is that all the prophets and messengers were human beings, as we discussed earlier, they were all human beings and this is repeated in the next few suitors as well. That the prophets and messengers Allah subhanho wa Taala sent them down as humans, meaning they were given this ability to be the Messenger of Allah subhana wa Tada, but they weren't selected from some other, you know, extraterrestrial being that came to the planet Earth. They were actually from human beings, just like you and I. And that's again to show us how they went through the same struggles and felt the same things that we feel they needed to eat when they were hungry, we need to eat when they're
hungry. They you know, with sleep, we sleep they had you know, desires of different sorts, we also as human beings have desires of different sorts. So Allah subhana wa tada said, the prophets and messengers from amongst them as human beings, and none of these prophets could perform miracles as Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions here in verse number 39, that none of these prophets could perform miracles except with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's important to highlight because here Allah was talking about the true believers, meaning those who were believing
truthfully, in the book, right, the previous books, meaning they're Christians, for example, when they heard the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is the Quran, they themselves were content, but they were people who believed in what miracles right Lisa had a SNM could perform miracles. And at the time of Isa Allah has sent him it was said, by those who are a little bit, you know, away from the understanding of ERISA, and he sent him he was not calling for anyone to worship Him. Rather, he was calling towards the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But because he could perform certain miracles like medicine, which was very common at that time, healing
those that were sick, bringing back you know, something that had passed away, giving life to it, that was from the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala visa alayhis salam couldn't do it without the help of Allah. So Allah highlights that here, that none of the prophets of the past could perform any miracles, except that Allah subhanho wa Taala had allowed that to take place, even if they will do it. So a prophet wished to conduct a miracle had a loss of Hamlet and and not wanted that to happen. There is no way that it would have happened. Absolutely no way. But Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one that made that happen for them. Then we move on to the next one. So what I brought him
in the very first verse of sorta Ibrahim obviously this is the Prophet right that we're referring to Prophet Ibrahim, Allah His son.
In the very first verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala had highlights the beautiful aspect of the Quran where he says Bismillah handwash man you're watching him and if
Li You can he took region s Amina una de una
de taco Rajan, samina wuma tienen una de mi is Neo being him enough so you know when z is in harmony, so a lot of what it says Alif Lam Ra. This is a Book which We have revealed to you or Muhammad, that you might bring mankind out of darkness into the light, by permission of their Lord, to the path of the Exalted in Might, the Praiseworthy, so the qualities, sorry, the beautiful start of this sutra that Allah Subhana winterhalter highlights here. And he mentioned the description of the Quran, what is the Quran he simply says, a book which we've revealed to you that you might bring mankind out of darkness. Simply if someone was to read the Quran, we know many people have been
guided towards Allah subhanho wa Taala as oneness by reading the Quran by reading, not even the actual Arabic of the Quran, the translation of the Quran, right? And it's made so much sense to them even though it's been translated that they accept the deen so Allah Subhana
shows us at the very beginning of the soul on the qualities of the Quran that he's placed in it that it guides people from darkness to light from darkness meaningful nomads, which is not Islam and he man, it's from Crawford and shift to, to to be guided upon Islam and even so Allah subhana wa Jalla highlights that in the very beginning of the soul, and it's not ironic that he highlighted at the beginning of surah Ibrahim Ibrahim alayhis salaam his whole life right what was he doing? He was calling people from rural nomads from darkness confidential to Eamon and Islam to the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
In verse number four,
Allah subhana wa Johanna says that he sent messengers, speaking the language of their book, and this is an important lesson for each and every one of us. I remember growing up and to today in many masajid they think that a Juma football must be done only in Arabic. Now, whatever proofs they have Alhamdulillah, right, we don't argue with them. But we argue with those or we debate with those who are in a position to actually change that so that you ma'am are the leaders of that Masjid. I shouldn't say leaders of the masjid but the leaders of the community and the people that have been put responsible for looking after that community.
The reason why I'm highlighting this is a lot of our massage and still do a drama football in Arabic, which is fine, but at least have some sort of explanation in English before or after the hookah or during the hookah for people who don't understand. Right? And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah sent messengers to their nations, speaking the languages that they would be able to understand. Now if we in Canada, what do we speak? Do we speak Arabic is our first language? No. Do we speak English? Yes, English is our first language here in Canada, right. So for someone to stand up and to deliver a sermon once a week, the joma football where the majority of Muslims only come to the
masjid on that day for that moment, or they take time out of their day to come to the masjid because they have to it's compulsory for them to do so. We noticed that some hannema even though
it might be the one time a week that some of the muslimeen get a message that's going to build and strengthen their email, we still noticed that some people are still giving the hopeless solely and only in Arabic, without even having an explanation. So if they want to do it in Arabic, by all means, go ahead, right? There's nothing wrong with that there's absolutely nothing wrong with it, but at least deliver a portion of it or before the clip or after the clip but a session so people can understand what is being sent.
And this is what a loss of handling data is highlighting here that he sent messengers to the people so they can address the topics of concern that they were going through in language that they would understand. So why is it that we are stubborn to change our ways and say Oh, you know what, we have to do it only in Arabic, you can do the compulsory or the the the components of the hookah that are needed to be done in Arabic, like the Doha, like sending preys upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, like the beginning, right, the beginning, the opening of the hook, but you want to do it according to the way that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did it fine, nothing wrong with
that, but at least explain some of the verses or some of the Hadith, some of the meaning of the chutzpah and our halaqaat and doodles in different languages. I know I went to a different machine, and I started teaching there recently, and so have a lot of the brothers and the sisters as well, and youth that attend that mustard.
For many years, they had been attending.
And they were benefiting. But, and there was no issue with that. But somehow they started to say, you know what, now that the that the HELOC was in English, our children can attend, our children can attend. Why? Because maybe some of us came from different countries, and we can understand that's able to do Punjabi or Bengali or Gujarati or any other language that's out there, right, but some kind of law for our children. It's English, especially here in Ontario, that is spoken. And our children feel more comfortable than English when it comes to learning and teaching and understanding. So some kind of law, they you know, a lot of the parents came to me and said, we
would come and benefit from the 100 and from the halaqa. But we wouldn't bring our children, but now they started bringing their children because the children can benefit too. And once we pass away, who's going to remain behind us, our children, right? So it's important for us to educate our children, in terms of the deen in the languages that they understand to make it easy for them to be able to stand on their two feet and teach this Diem to the people that come after them as well. In verses five to 18, Allah subhanho wa Taala discusses the past messengers, the previous messengers and prophets. We won't go through them because we went through them yesterday.
But one thing that a lot of panelists either highlights here in sort of Ebrahim, verses five to 18 is how these messengers were threatened with expulsion that they were threatened by their people and told we will throw you out we will remove you from this land. And this is sort of a Ibrahim, who was who was the first one in that case, right? That we know so famously, for being told we will remove you from this land. It's Ibrahim Allah has sent him right. So Ibrahim Allah has sent him went through the struggles, many of the other prophets and messengers were told by their people, we will remove you from the land.
In verses 22, to 2322, to 23, Allah subhanho wa Taala had a here in a in an absolutely amazing example. He shows us how shavon disowns his followers on the Day of Judgment. And I want to read through these verses 22 and 23. And shavon will say when the matter has been concluded, meaning it's the day of judgment, right? The world is over shavon will say indeed, a law has promised you the promise of truth. And I promised you but I betrayed you. Right? But I had no authority over you. Except that I invited you. I was just a color. I was just inviting you towards evil. You didn't have to listen to me. But you did. Right.
I have no authority over you. Except that I invited you and you've responded to me. So do not blame me shake on the same Don't blame me. But blame yourselves. I cannot be called to your aid, nor can you be called to my aid. I can't be called to your assistance if you need anything. shaitan is saying I'm not going to come to your assistance who comes to your assistance? A lot. Right? And then in the same case, shaitan says, nor can you be called to my aid, you're not going to help shape on right. You're only falling in the trap of shape one of us apparently Dinah's calling you somewhere else and you're falling into the trap of shape on
Indeed, I deny your association of me with a law before indeed for the wrongdoers is a painful punishment is
indeed for the wrongdoers is a painful punishment in verse number 23. And those who believed and did righteous deeds will be admitted to gardens beneath which rivers flow abiding eternally, they're in by the permission of their Lord and their greeting they're in will be peace.
Peace, right? must have had a lot. Verse number 22 is powerful. Because it shows us you know, a few days ago, we took the example of how
he was calling the the machine again for the Battle of button and telling them I'm with you in Ninja lucam I'm right there next to you, right, I'm going to help you, I'll assist you. And as soon as he saw the helpers of Allah Subhana which Allah the angels, standing with the companions are the long run home. What did he say? In the very, I'm far from you, I'm distant. Leave me alone. I'm out of here. I'm taking off, right? I'm not going to help you in this battle. There's helpers here in the automatic town. He said, I see that which you don't see. And so he left. And what happened, the most shrieking did not succeed. Here again. shaitan now on the day of judgment will tell those that
followed him. I was simply calling you. I was just whispering to you asking you to come away from the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And, and you believe to me, You followed me, you didn't have to, I don't come to your help. You don't come to my house, but you still listen to me. You fell into that trap. And I'm free from anything that you did. I'm not responsible for it. You did it yourself, and the loss of handle it. And it gives us this example in the court and to show us that shavon actually only whispers to us
shaitan only whispers to us and tries to trick us into doing things that are displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala and it is us that fall into that trap. Why? Because on the Day of Judgment, a lot doesn't punish shavon for what we've done, we get punished for what we've done. Right? We're not following him and this has shaped on you know, he he's the one that's going to be punished because we followed him No, we're the one that's that received the punishment should we follow the tricks of faith on
in verses 32 to 34.
Verses 32 to 34 Allah subhana wa tada he lists some of the favors of a lot some of the blessings that he's given us right some of the bounties of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we enjoy on earth, and I won't go through some of them right now because we're going to go through many of them later on in about 20 minutes in sha Allah hotel. But here he lists some of the favors of Allah subhanho wa Taala
In verses 35 to 41,
verses 35 to 41.
Ibrahim alayhis salaam brings his meriel to Makkah. And when he brings this man Elijah has sent him to Makkah. He's a small child, right? And who does he go with? Who does he make the journey with?
Ibrahim goes to Makkah with who is married and
his wife her job. That is marry Ibrahim alayhis salam have another wife,
who? Salah. So this was the journey that Ibrahim alayhis salam made with hajah to Makkah. Right. And he brings along with them is Marian alayhis salaam who is a young boy at the time. In fact, he's still very young.
To the extent that he's he's still breastfeeding from his mother from her job and must have what Allah says in his verse.
what is called a boy emo BGR let me know what you know. Boniva, Benny and narrow budan Elson
Berlin, Berlin Cassie meenan
tabea Annie for in many women are also on Eva in Nova food on water theme and mentioned Mohammed Ibrahim said and now this is the Doha of Ebrahim alayhis salam. He said My Lord, I'll be make this city Mecca, the city of Mecca, a secure place and keep me and my sons away from worshipping idols keep me and my progeny away from worshipping idols. What happened after the time of Ibrahim Aeneas?
up until the time that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam ended up receiving the message, we noticed that there were idols being worshipped, right. But he made this dua and even though he made the dua, we noticed that regardless of people worshipping idols, as in, you know, in Macau around the Caribbean, they were still people who turned to a loss of habitat from amongst the mushrikeen those who turned and worship the loss of hanaway data and accepted the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam were free from any idol worshipping You and I are free from that as well. Right? So Ibrahim, Allah His center made this to our heart and we fell into that nation who
worship Allah subhanho wa Taala without any idols.
How many of you know the age difference between Israel and
is married and is how they were brothers, right? Brothers, children of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, there was 13 years It is said that there's approximately 13 years between Israel and his half who was older, is married who is older than his hack. Okay, so Allah Subhana Allah highlights that here he talks about the story of Ibrahim Allah has sent them how they go to Makkah, we'll talk about the actual incident of, you know, how jarred and running between safa and marwah and another point in time in the Quran in sha Allah, Allah We won't touch upon it today. We'll move on in sha Allah to Surah
Surah TL hedger is Stan is the 15th surah of the Quran. And what exactly does it mean? What is the title mean? Elijah?
You have like an English translation right in front of you Mashallah.
A rocky tract what is that
a ravine or a place that is rocky a place that is you know, just rocks? What places it referring to them? What is the loss of kind of metallic referring to where is that ledger?
It still exists up until today. Where is it?
Exactly the place where the people have moved used to live. Where is that?
Who here used to live in Saudi uncle used to live in Saudi? Where did you used to live?
You were in the Iran. Okay. Did you ever go up north to tebu Did you ever go to Medina and
you couldn't go Has anyone here been to Medina and Assad? The place where the people have sought it had is and have lived. Medina Siler has a place even up until today, you can still go there. But you need special permission from the Saudi government it's completely blocked off right? You have checkpoints everywhere you go anyways. But so Pamela you need permission to go but you can actually get permission.
This is being recorded. I don't know if I should tell you Wherever but inshallah we will and hopefully this doesn't cause a commotion. So Allah Subhana Allah dinette, the people of the mood, right they lived in a place called Allah.
hf which is approximately 340 380 kilometers, northwest of Medina, right? So up north of Medina, okay. And this place is there, up until today, it's commonly known as Medina, where the people have sought it, Allah has sent him lived, right. And you could go there to visit it, but it's not a place that's recommended to go to. So if you go there to take pictures and selfies and to have a picnic and bring some Thai and shy and sit there with dates and enjoy yourself, then that's not the place for you. But it's a place to go to if you want to recognize the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala is destruction upon the people of Sonic. And so if you want to go there to build your email, then that
is permissible to go there to see it, to witness it and to be affected by seeing the place the historical place and then leaving that's fine. But islamically to go there and take pictures and selfies and say, hey, I've been here and so on and so forth. No, and this is why it was stopped and the Saudi government blocked people off from going in because people would go there literally to just set up tents and have picnics, right and it's a place where the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala came. And we know that the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us wherever the places of the punishment of Allah had come to the nations of the past, we shouldn't go there and
reside and dwell and stay there for a long period of time. We should quickly pass through it if we need to pass through and not stay there for a long period of time.
However, if anyone wants to get permission to go there, and you go for Oman, so if you go for Hajj, you know chances are you will not get this.
What you need is a test city. It's a piece of paper that literally has your name on it your passport number and you know signed and stamped and that allows you to get through the checkpoint to go into Medina sada the place to get it. When you come out of most of the number we in Medina, you come out of mustard and ugly. So you finished praying salah and you come out the front of the mustard and you turn left. Immediately. You see on the left, what do you see genda to the bucket, right the cemetery agenda to the bucket. Right under agenda to the book there. There's a ramp that goes up into it right under it there's offices go into those offices and asked for a test city or a letter to go to
Medina sada they'll give it to you. But don't go in as a group of 1015 2030 people go in, you know, two people at max. Otherwise, they'll know that your old bus is going to go and travel there and then somehow they won't give you the actual letter. So if you go in one person, two people go in, you know, a few minutes apart 10 minutes, 15 minutes apart, they won't suspect anything and think that you guys are all going to go there a group of Canadians are going to go and have a picnic there, then so Pamela they might not issue the city. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has preserved that place up until today, right preserve the place where the people of Sonic resided. And it's called a
a loss of candlelight to Allah in verses four and five of soda to hedger.
He warns the people of Makkah, what does he warn them with? Allah Subhana Allah says, and we did not destroy any city, but for it was a known decree. And now the people who are listening to the message of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the mushrikeen the crush of maca right there hearing this message and Allah subhanho wa Taala he titled this Surah Al hedger, the deserted place known as a hater today, he talks about that in this surah. And he mentions to the people of Mecca, that we've destroyed people of the past who didn't listen to the message. And he warns them of being or following the same path of going down the same path and being from those who disobeyed the message
of Allah subhanho wa Taala that has come to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Don't be from amongst those who disobeyed. Because you might be punished, just like the people of the past were punished. And we know that at a later point in time when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was on his return from temboo. The angels came to him and asked him Do you want us to destroy these people? You want us to destroy them for harming you from from you know for disobeying you? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No, he did not want to destroy them. Why not? Because he said, I hope and he had hope in the people that were stoning him. And I'm mentioning this for a
reason. He had hope in the people that were stoning him that were making the blood flow from his body to the extent that his shoes or his footwear were clogged onto his feet. He said no, because I hope from amongst them from their children, their progeny, there will be people who will worship a loss of habitat. And there's a reason why we're mentioning that here.
Verse number six, disgracing the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and calling him a madman. In verse number six, we see here that
butchery keen we're calling the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in NACA lemons known, you are nothing but a madman. You're insane. You're crazy. You're you don't know what you're talking about. And we know that they used to call him a magician. We know they used to call him a soothsayer that they used to call them many different names, right? But here Allah subhana wa tada actually highlights it in the Quran that they used to call him a madman. But what happens immediately after that, what does Allah subhanho wa Taala say? How does the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam respond? We just finished saying he was being stoned, did he pick up a stone and throw it right back
at them? When we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being defamed? What do we do? Do we go and we burn flags of Denmark and you know start to do a whole bunch of things that are not according to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he didn't fight back and retaliate. He trusted that Allah subhanho wa Taala would send something good. Know when there's a need to retaliate, fine. But when the general public goes out in the streets and takes, you know, flags of different countries and starts burning them and protesting and jumping and stomping on things that belong to different countries that are writing or drawing things that are apparently the
image of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, I don't believe they're the image of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, even if they draw it and say this is Mohammed, we as Muslims should easily stand up and say, No, it isn't. You don't know what you're talking about. That's not the image of Mohammed, as much as you want to claim it is, as many front page articles as you want to produce and say this is the image of Muhammad, we will never believe that this is the image of Muhammad. And even if you claim that you're disgracing Muhammad, those are just your claims. Those are just your claims. We trust that Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to fix the situation, right?
Why? Because he does that. And he says so in the next verse, Allah subhana wa tada says in verse number nine, in national unison, the comma in Allah hula have
Allah subhanho wa Taala, clearly and concisely says, indeed, it is he who sent down the Quran, and indeed we will be its guardians. Allah subhanho wa Taala will look after the Koran, and he will protect the message of the Quran, he will protect the messenger who came with the message of the Quran. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one to do so he can do that he has the power to do that. Now, that doesn't mean
that we turn a blind eye. Don't get me wrong. That doesn't mean that we turn a blind eye and just be like, Oh, you know, they're just they're saying things about Mohammed Who cares? No, no, no, no. Those that are in a position to speak up. Those that have authority, those they can say something their voices heard, they can do something and say something in a in a place at a time where everything is correct and right, that is going to be impactful upon those that are disgracing the prophets, Allah, Allah usnm. But for us to simply see 10s of 1000s of Muslims around the world burning flags, what do we get from it? We're only seen as terrorists and people who don't care about
rules and laws. And we're seen as people who disgrace you know, nations and leaders and so on and so forth. And that's not part of our Deen, our Dean doesn't tell us to disgrace leaders, our Dean tells us to advise the leaders, when they make a mistake, advise them when they make a mistake, advise them, right, keep advising the leaders, even if they're the wrong leaders for you, advise them, advise them, advise them, unless you have the ability to take that position, and to do a better position or better job in that position than they have, then you have no authority over them, but advise them that is your authority. And so the people of our oma our communities, who are lawyers
who are doctors who are engineers, who are public speakers, were imams who are leaders who are heads of massage, and who are teachers who who work in the municipalities who are counselors who are doctors and dentists and all different sorts of people who are known in society who can actually say something and their voices heard, they should be speaking up. They should be the ones addressing this topic, and we should be supporting them in what they say. But we don't see that happening too much. It happens but it doesn't happen too much. And we have to trust a loss of Hannah Montana, we must trust Allah subhanho wa Taala because he says in the Quran, in nationalism novica we're in and
I will have it on if he's the one that revealed this message to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and we believe that this is the true message and it will prevail, it will always be the right religion and always be on top. Then why are we worried about some hand which Allah will protect this deal? Regardless of what happens, even if people burn every single quarter and on the face of this earth, Allah will protect it. Were in the hearts of our children.
even if they tried to kill all of our forefathers, along with protected were in the hearts of the other leaders. Even if they tried to do that somewhere on the face of the earth,
the Koran will be protected. And even if it's destroyed on every single possible inch and speck of the face of this earth, where's the unprotected, allow
the protected tablet, it is protected, the words in it are protected. It is the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala had, none can destroy it. No one can ever destroy the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala No matter how much they try, and that is important for us to understand. We only say it, we only speak it we only talk about it but seldom do we actually truly believe that the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala is protection. And it is protection for us as well. Those that are harmed by let's say black magic, or they're harmed by aim evil eye or another as we say in order to do right they're harmed by it, what is going to cure you not going to be resolved and Janab sub and this person has
about gene asked for no turn to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to do what not to go to someone else and seek the cure. If you have the strength and capability in your body to actually turn to a lesser panel with and and seek the protection yourself through the recitation of the Quran. Then you must recite those verses yourself. The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not to go to someone to seek a cure. The Sunnah is to seek the cure yourself. And if your friends, your family, your relatives, your brothers, your sisters, your children, your parents, they see that you can't, you're trying and
struggling but the cure is not coming and you're losing, you know, ability, you're becoming weaker and weaker. They can go and ask other people for help. They should go and ask people for help those that have the help those that can help you in the recitation of the Quran and to help you you know, remove those evil spells another and AI and all those things that are upon people. So the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala is protected and it itself is protection for us. And that is the beauty of the Quran that Allah subhana wa tada has given us, then Allah subhanho wa Taala and verses 14 to 20. He mentioned the mushrikeen and how they mark the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and
how they say
they need signs from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But then Allah Subhana Allah at the end of those verses, he says that he sent signs and he showed them signs, but even if he continues to send science to them, they will not believe they will not understand. We move on to verses 26 to 44. Allah subhanho wa Taala
he talks about Adam, Allah, his center and at least and the creation and how Adam was created from from clay, right and molded from clay and dust and sand right and molded and how at least was made from a smokeless fire. Right?
Then Allah subhana wa Tada. And in these verses, he talks about the dialogue between Allah and at least the dialogue between Allah and at least Allah and shavon shavon His name is at least for those that didn't know, right, so the dialogue between him
and Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then we see in these verses how Allah Subhana Allah to Allah tells him that you will be forever pushed away, meaning you will forever be misguided, and those that you want to misguide, so he asks Allah subhanho wa Taala allow me to try and misguide people, allow me to try and pull people away from your remembrance of Allah Subhana Allah gives him that he tells him, okay, go ahead, try the people that will listen to you and are misguided, then they're misguided, right? And so Allah subhanho wa Taala gives him that ability to whisper to us and try and pull us away from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now that doesn't mean that shavon is
the only person or the only one that's that's capable of pulling us away from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala simply if we have a friend who is discouraging us from doing something that is loved and liked by Allah subhanho wa Taala that person can be a discouragement for us as well right?
But Allah subhanho wa Taala gives shaitan
at least that,
that that quality to be able to go and whisper to the Muslim mean, and to the non Muslims to anyone in general to try and pull them away from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala from verses 44 to 50 Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about Johanna and the people of paradise. So he talks about Jana, and the people of Paradise, right characteristics of Jenna and Johanna and then the characteristics of those people who will end up in gender in paradise.
From 51 to 84, the various prophets that Allah subhanho wa Taala discusses hear their stories and their destruction. Allah subhana wa tada mentions it at the end of Sora, to hedger. And here specifically, he mentioned that, you know, the people that are mentioned here as well, as we just finished discussing, so the different prophets of the past in their discussion that their destruction, we spoke about it in the past few days, I don't want to go over it again in Sha Montana, because we want to start sort of similar to what is the surah? What is it called in English?
The bees, right?
Sudan Surah 16.
Why does Allah subhanho wa Taala have a solar named after the bees? What is the purpose? What's the point? They're just little things that come and sting us. They're annoying, right? No, they're creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And in fact, the honeybee doesn't sting you, unless you actually bother it. I remember I was just in Thailand a few weeks ago.
And we went to this honey factory. And they pulled out one of those slabs from the from the honey from the beehive. Right? You know how they have those men made beehives that mass produce honey for us. So they pulled out one of those slaps, and they were giving it to us to hold on to now I didn't hold on to it, because I'm like, you know what, I'm in a foreign country, I don't need this right now, I don't need to get bitten by a bunch of bees. If I drop it, I was actually worried I might, you know, someone drops it well being handed from one person to the other, if that falls on the ground. So Pamela, but you know, they pulled this lab out, and they were giving it to the to the
brothers and sisters that went with us in that group to Thailand, and allowing them to hold on to it. And there were 1000s of bees on there. 1000s of bees. And so there was this little girl, she was maybe like nine or 10 years old, and she went to put her hand on it. Right? And the the man that was there, he stopped her. And he said, No, no, don't do that. Right. He said you can do it. He's and he himself put his hand and put his hand like, you know, lower on the slab. So he didn't just hold it from the top, he actually put his hand lower on it. And the bees just literally went on his head. He said they won't do anything to you unless you actually are threat to them. Unless you make them feel
threatened. Right, something's wrong, then they'll sting you. Otherwise they won't because if they sting you they're gonna die. Right? We know that a honey bee if it stings you it dies. So Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the bees in the Quran here.
And he talks about the bees and unless pen with Adam begins this surah warning us of the hour. Now remember, in these sutras we mentioned that a lot talks about or mentions the signs of his greatness. He mentioned the signs of his greatness on Earth, the signs of his power, the signs of his might, right, his power, the signs of his existence, the signs of gentlemen, that he's placed for us, the signs that we will reach gender, the signs of jahannam and the dangers for us on Earth. Alyssa pedowitz, Anna talks about many different signs in the blood, but he begins sort of
talking about the hour and how the hour is approaching what is the hour,
another hour for his thought of that we're all looking forward to nine o'clock so we can eat right? What is the hour,
the day of judgment. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has different names for the Day of Judgment, right? different names in the Quran, that maybe will ask you to list as homework in sha Allah hota hai Allah. So Allah says, He warns us that our is fast approaching. Now if this was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam over 1400 years ago, over the hour must be coming pretty fast, right? However, this was revealed to Mohammed some longer and he was sent a 1400 some odd years ago. And Allah says that the hour is fast approaching.
But we're just chilled out we're relaxed. Why because the hours approaching, but we don't see it to be as something that's real. It's not tangible. We haven't touched it yet. We understand it. We believe it. We know that this is a reality. But it's it doesn't impact us like it should because it's not tangible yet. It hasn't come. We haven't seen the sun rise from the west for example, right and set in the east. We haven't seen the major signs that Allah subhana wa tada will send at the very end of time, right? So it's not tangible yet for us.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala immediately goes off into from verses 10 1112 and so on and so forth. He starts talking about rain. In verses 10 and 11.
Allah mentions how rain is a blessing. It is he who sends down rain from the sky like we see happening outside right now. From it is drink so we drink the water right? And from it is foliage in which you pasture animals, right the animals go and they drink
From the water, they themselves drink from it. They eat from the pasture from the grass and the grain that's produced and so on and so forth. Allah Subhana, Allah mentions in verse 11. He causes to grow for you. They're buying the crops, olives, palm trees, grape vines, and from all different kinds of fruits. Indeed it is that in that in the rain, is a sign for people who give thought, in the rain is a sign for people who give thought, think of the rain. How is the rain coming down from the sky? Where's it coming from? Yeah, we know Allah subhanho wa Taala made the water from the, you know, the Great Lakes, Lake Ontario evaporate and go up in the sky. And then there's clouds and when
the clouds get thick, and you know the the change in the temperature and the change in the the pressure in the air, and then the clouds form or they they produce these droplets and the droplets are formed and they fall down from the sky. But who's making that happen? That sort of loss of habitat is asking us who's making that happen? How is this happening? How does that actually come to be?
And who is doing it? Are we doing it? I remember when I was living in Malaysia,
in Singapore when I went there once, so I was boarding the plane in Malaysia, going to Singapore, which is about a 45 minute flight. And the brothers in Malaysia started messaging me saying don't get on the flight because there's toxic levels of air quality. In Singapore, it has reached toxic levels. So the toxins that are in the air are so dangerous, if you breathe them, it can actually kill you. And that's because of the haze that was happening to crop burning. That happens in Indonesia. And then the wind blows and brings the smoke from the crops burning. It travels across into Singapore and Malaysia. So it's actually really bad to breathe. And when I boarded the plane
subpanel I landed over there and the brothers had masks for me special and 95 or 95 masks, not Nokia's actual masks, right. So masks that you put on your on your face. So when you breathe, you don't breathe those toxins in. And literally for the four days that I was in Singapore, every single time I left my hotel room, I would have to have this mask off.
And it was it was a nuisance. And then on the news i was i was watching on the news panel, and they were saying how
have figured out a way to go into the sky. Right? And to plant something in the sky. Using a plane, right? plant something in the sky that's going to produce rain. Not actually take water up in the sky. But a How do you call it not not fake but imitation rain? So imitation rain, right? So So Pamela they would they were thinking of doing this in Singapore at that time, if it remained for a number of days, they were going to you know, do that in the sky. So that rain is produced in the clouds and then they shower down cleaning out the air. And Allah subhana wa tada talks about rain, how he produces the rain, and he sends the rain when the rain is needed at the best times in the
best moments. And they didn't need to do it because the rain came from us accountable what to hide it in verses 12 to 13. Allah mentions night day, sun, moon, all the blessings on Earth. So now in the verses as you see we'll go through them very quickly, because we're not going to talk about all the blessings, but we're going to name the blessings that Allah subhana wa tada mentions in these verses. So he talks about the night and the day, the two opposites and the sun and the moon. So the sun and the moon contribute to night and date, right.
And all the blessings on earth the lesson plan, which I mentioned, then he goes into verses 14 to 18, the oceans, the mountains, the rivers, the roads, the stars. So musk talks about the oceans and the rivers, and how they are also roads to show us the way and landmarks that he's placed for us on Earth. Right, the rivers, the mountains, their landmarks, and what do the mountains do? So Panama, they hold the earth together. And we notice when the tsunami hit 10 and a half years ago, what happened? It was the plates or the mountains under the water that shifted, not the mountains we see sticking up above the water. The mountains that were under the water, the plates of the earth
shifted slightly. And the ripple effect was so big that it destroyed 10s of 1000s of lives.
Just a little
under the water, very simple, very easy, just shifted.
And that's a
huge tsunami 10s of 1000s of people in various different countries died simply because Allah Subhana Medina made one of those mountains move a little bit. And that's the power of Allah subhanho wa adad imagine how on earth did we think of that? How on earth did the water start to generate from that little movement under in it
depths of the sea. How did it create such a big wave to come out of the out of the water on the shore and literally wash away lives? How did that happen? That's like a ripple effect to the max that we've never even sat to ponder over. But Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about it in the corner. He talks about the roads and how roads are landmarks for us to follow. And they take us from one place to the other stars Allah subhana wa tada mentions all of these to be blessings, blessings on Earth, right.
Then in verse 18, Allah subhanho wa Taala says
that we can't count his blessings very simple, very beautiful. ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions, we're in Terra De Niro, Mata la isla torso. In namaha, Nova funabashi if you were to count the blessings of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, you would never be able to count them. You would never be able to tally them up to count them up. There's so many blessings in each one of the blessings there are more and more blessings to look at. And so kinda time doesn't permit us to do that. There's so many blessings of Allah Subhana Allah to had on earth. He then goes on in verses 19 to 23. He tells us Allah subhana wa tada says, worship Allah He is the one who is who is worthy of
being worshipped, and to stay away from those idols because nothing that has ever come to the people who worshipped idols has, has saved them from those idols meaning none of those idols have ever saved the people who were destroyed. Those idols themselves Allah subhana wa tada mentions our creations, they're the creation of a law who have not created anything. They haven't created anything. They're simply creations that haven't created a loss of Hannibal Lecter. Hannah is the creator, in verses 50 sorry, 41 to 42.
The reward for those who migrate for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala, as mentioned here, and you can read that over on your own in sha Allah to Hana, verses 41 and 42. Those who migrate for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah, He grants them gender as we know.
Verses 58 to 60, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about an action of the machete keen, the people who in the time of jelenia would have a child that is born, but notice this child is a girl. And so kind of ask yourself, if your child was born today, and it was a girl, you're holding your daughter, right? Imagine if that was the practice of us. But that was a practice of those in Jackie, Leah and I must have had with Hannah remove that practice. They used to debate with themselves and Allah says it in the Quran. In those verses in verses 58 and 60. He says they used to debate with themselves Should I keep this Daughter of mine who's going to be a disgrace for us? Or should we just bury them
in the earth and we know that that was done. They would just bury them in the earth alive.
Alive, just put them in the ground and bury them because they were so disgraced to have a daughter. Imagine that you had a loss of hand with Hannah abolished that removed it completely. And people say Islam is a religion that's oppressive towards women. Give us a break. Right That's what we say give us a break. In verses 68 onwards Allah subhanho wa Taala here, he mentions a lot of blessings and we're going to conclude very quickly in sha Allah. Verses 68 onwards Allah subhana wa tada talks about
the bees and he highlights how the bees produce a liquid a juice in their stomachs. In that is a cure for men. Allah says that in the Quran in the juice of the stomach's of the bees, which is what the pollen in the honey right? In it is a cure for men. And so Canada we know that honey is a cure for men and scientists have told us that but Allah Subhana Allah has told us that way before the scientist, right? So the bees in themselves is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala had their wonderful contribution to agriculture as well as how the bees go from one plant to the other and they pollinate the trees and the plants for us. We don't have to do that the bees do it for us. And
now the scientists are saying there's a lack of bees and lack of pollination is happening and some candlelight simply because we've changed the world and we're harming the species and animals that exist amongst us. They produce honey which is a cure for mankind unless pentatonic goes on in those in those verses, I'll just talk or mentioned what he what he says. Signs of blessings are found in and Allah Subhana Allah says men are mankind human beings, that in ourselves there are signs from Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah, Allah then says people's livelihood, your livelihood in it are signs from Allah subhanho wa Taala mates
meaning your mates, your spouse, the people that you reside with. in them are signs from Allah subhanho wa Taala. The children that we have our grandchildren, hearing sight, birds, homes, furnishings, all of these things allow us to paddle into high dimensions, clothing, shade, places of refuge in mountains, garments, coats, etc, etc, etc. Allah subhana wa Jalla names a number of different blessings that he's given us. But then in verse number 89, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the Quran explains everything. Look what on itself, as Allah Subhana Allah says in verse number 89
it's an explanation for everything and what we know. And we say, you know, the Quran hasn't explained everything. No, the urn has explained everything meaning it's touched upon an essence or an aspect of everything, for further you know, compliment of what is mentioned in the Quran, what do we use, the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right, so that we can understand what Allah subhana wa Taala is talking about. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has explained everything for us in the Quran meaning how we are to live our life is explained in the corner live, according to the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is in the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala
