We know someone Someone wrote something here.
Question inshallah I'll look at it later. Because there's a lot to cover today inshallah.
Good No, no, it's good. I actually appreciate that. People are writing things down and, and handing them forward in China. That's good. We'll continue with shooting with Sula to calf.
And then we go on into sort of money on sort of Baja and sort of till MBA and cover the first 50 verses. So, again, it's a lot to cover every single night in Charlottetown, we obviously can't cover every single sooner in detail. But the good thing is that this opens the door for us and hopefully, maybe after Ramadan. Aside from our typical Friday hanekom, maybe we can have a helicon Tafseer and maybe go through some of the sources of the Quran in detail. Because that would be I think, very, very nice, very pleasant to learn the Quran, in detail, go through the verses, one after the other.
And to maybe benefit a lot more from some of the the sutras that we can't spend too much time on during the month of Ramadan. So, we continue today we'll jump ahead to verses 103 and 106, in sha Allah to Allah
103 to 106 of surah three Caf where Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights the good deeds being gone or wasted, from people who who do good deeds and that's a huge loss for them. Why? Simply because they deny the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala so people do good deeds, you know, a doctor, curing people all day long, that's a good deed, right? That's many good deeds, helping people giving them you know, medical assistance sometimes, you know, they're on the brink of death, but because of the medical assistance that they get Allah subhanho wa Taala allows that person to and there's many more years so there's you know, good deeds being done by many people, you know, engineers who are
designing bridges and allowing traffic to flow into cities so people can, you know, go into the other side of the city or the town or wherever it is cross that river or lake and you know, find their sustenance on the other side. So people do good deeds, but also Pamela Tana says here, that people who,
who do those good deeds, they will notice that their good deeds go to waste simply because they denied the signs of a loss of Hamlet and they didn't believe in Allah subhana wa Tada. So all the good deeds that they did, will not hold any value on the Day of Judgment. Yes, you might be a good person, you might be a great individual people see you whether Muslim or non Muslim, they admire you for who you are for the behavioral traits that you have for the type of individual that that you generally are but so panela it goes to waste on the day of judgment because you didn't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala or they didn't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala And in verse number 109,
and loss of Hannah Diana says, Well, no can and rumeida then he can EMA to be Lana Fidel back.
Further can eema Torah be Yog can be myth me, my dad, say if this C were ink for writing the words of my Lord, if the CMO subhana wa tada says all of the water that it contains, was to be transformed into ink. And that ink was to write not only the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala some of the translations Just say the word of Allah. Right if if there were to translate, sorry, if the ink that was transformed from the water of the sea, was to write all of the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala, it wouldn't be able to do so it would run dry. Right? And that shows us as we took in the previous days, all of the verses and the Ayat of Allah subhanho wa Taala that were mentioned in the Quran.
And if you do if you were to go into detail simply to analyze our own selves, you look at medical students, they walk around with these massive books, right, these fat books, you probably walk around with them as well, right? These big big books are solid inside of them. It might be like, you know, the 101 course on how an eye blinks seriously, but 101 course on how an eye blinks, like what the human body does all of the different components in the body that are working just to make the eye blink, and why the eye blinks and what the purpose of it is and so on and so forth. So if you were to sit back and look at the human body alone, how much has been written into
terms of medical studies in terms of, you know, the head, and the brain, and then the hair and the ears and the eyes and the nose in the mouth. And then you have specialists that will spend many years trying to study that and focus on it and learn and, you know, go about in more experiments, and try to advance technology and advanced knowledge in those, you know, specific fields, as a panelist so much has been written on it. And that is just one aspect of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's one aspect of the creation all of us.
That's, that's not even the whole human body. Right? There's things that happen in the human body that no one can explain. If we were to start analyzing that and writing about it, why can't we explain it? Where does it come from? A lot more ink would be spent on that. And that's just the human body. What about everything that's around us? Like I gave the example last time of the carpet that we're sitting on, right? What's this carpet made out of?
What is it made of? polyester, right? What's polyester? Where does it come from? oil. It's a plastic polyester is a plastic and plastic is made from oil. And somehow you're sitting on it, it's soft, it's fluffy. But How on earth did it come to be a soft, you know, stringy type of item or material that actually came from a droplet of oil, and that same droplet of oil, you squish in the middle of your fingers, and you put it in your engine, right, which stops the gears from smashing against each other at 1000s and 1000s of revolutions per minute. But yet that same drop of oil, you can squish between your fingers, put on your clothing and stains your clothing, that same clothing is made out
of polyester, which is the essence of what that oil that droplet of oil was. So all the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala tie into one another. And for those of you that are young and interested, that same droplet of oil is what makes the beautiful colors on the screen of your cell phone. Right so a lot of us handle it and it ties everything in with with each other. then allow us to handle it. And it goes on in verse number 110, the last verse of the song
and he mentioned the simple formula to meet the loss of cannabinoid data. Very simple formula if you want to meet a loss of Hamlet data. Here this loss of power to highlight says we're in a
era. Now this is obviously not Allah Subhana Allah saying this, this is the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will in
Israel comb your hair, he lay a NEMA Isla hokum 11 wide
for men cannot do this is the important part. If you want to meet the muscle panel with Anna, this is what we need to do. Femina can
be fun, yeah. Herman
Swanee ha, wanna be arriba to be had, whoever from amongst us wishes and desires to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna fell yaman hominins Ali, how do righteous good deeds? What was the very first thing that we touched upon in verse 103? When we started today, we said that those who do righteous good deeds, they will just be lost if they don't believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala so the prophets on a long line he was sending me are saying, well, in a nutshell myth lucam you have a life I'm simply a human being just like you, but I've received this revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala and I pass the message on to you.
And Nima Illa, who Camila who I hate, that your Lord is one to heed the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala Thurman Cornejo juliaca Ravi sallyann Allah Hamelin salejaw when you shake and do not after performing good deeds, don't render any partners with a loss of pan of water and when you should, it could be a bad idea to be a Hydra. Don't render any partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala after doing your good righteous deeds, and you will surely meet a loss of Hannah what to Hannah. So we conclude sort of too soon. That's what I told us sooner. And we move on to sort of mini medium which is the 19th sort of, of the Quran. And Allah subhanho wa Taala here in the very beginning of sort of
money from verses one to verses nine, he talks about how Zechariah Allah has sent him made that famous do that Doha to Allah subhanho wa Jalla what was the data that he made? Well, you can read it there, but Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us
that Zakaria would go and give food to who
the Millennium Allah has set up. And we discussed this earlier for those that weren't here. That night. He used to go and give food to medium and he has sent him
and money him. She would always
Have within her her place where she would sit that bowl of fruit that was given to her from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it was the fruit of the opposite season, as we mentioned, right? So the fruits that you would not get commonly, in the summer, she would have,
right she would have those. So the summer fruits, she would be enjoying the winter fruits. And in the winter, she would be enjoying enjoying the summer fruits. And so it's like it is and I'm asked her why is this weird? How is this happening? And she simply told him, if the one who created us, can give us this life, he can also produce for us and give us provide for us the fruits of the opposite season. So as a kid, he had a son and thought he thought, you know what, I'm someone who's of the opposite season, meaning I'm too old now to have children. I've passed that season of ripeness, where myself and my wife can have children. But he thought if Allah Subhana Allah can give
the fruit of the opposite season in terms of food to someone then unlocking surely provide a child to someone who is in that, you know, the older age, the age where they're past, you know, the stage of having children. So he makes to add to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And here we see in these verses verses one to nine, how Allah subhanaw taala grant Zakaria, Allah has sent him a son. And that son, Allah Subhana, Allah says is going to be named. Yeah. So yeah, alayhis salam is actually named by Allah subhanho wa Taala. He gave the name to Yeah, and told Zakaria that this child would be named yahia. And none other had been named the year before this. This was the first time that anyone had
used this name. Yeah, yeah. And yeah, Allah has sent him was a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you look at the detailed description of his life, we noticed that yeah, here it is. Sam was one who loved to recite, recite What? Not the Quran? What did you use to recite
the Torah, he used to recite the total. So he was was a person who liked to recite the toner. And it is also said that Yeah, he and he has sent him had a beautiful voice, and he memorized the tone as well. He memorized the entire tone, which is not really seen today, you don't see many people memorizing the Bible, or the scriptures that they follow the toto or maybe even the Hindus are following the scriptures, this Sikhs, right, they read and recite those scriptures all the time, you don't find many of them, easily capable of memorizing the scriptures that they follow. But yet the Muslim means Pamela, we have her father of the Quran everywhere, probably sitting amongst us, we
might have a handful of her father, right people who have memorized the Quran, or at least parts of the Quran. And when we hear the Koran it's very easy to memorize, we retain it because it's real, it's realistic, and it's divine. It's from a vessel of water. And so a lot put it in a form in a method that it becomes easy to memorize. And that was not really seen in the scriptures of the previous nations, nor is it seen today and those who follow those scriptures. So yeah, Allah has sent him He memorized the Torah.
And he was a person.
He was a person who was extremely good to his parents. Okay, extremely obedient, extremely nice, well mannered, beautiful individual. And so how do I know a friend of mine who was named Yeah, and he fits the description of the SLM so perfectly. And while I was reading this today, and going over some of the descriptions, I was thinking how powerful it is for a parent to give their child a name that inshallah would be relevant to that child in the future, and name that is good, and name that that child can live up to. So for example, you give your child not necessarily the name of someone of the past, someone that you know, that has come, but a good name, a name that has a good meaning,
a name that is relevant, a name that is significant, right.
And to see those qualities and characteristics in our children, is important right to try and educate our children so they can understand the meaning of their name, understand who they can grow up to be and live up to that title that every single person calls them by the title of our name. And so Allah subhana wa Haida had shown us so many beautiful characteristics in your hair and he said them and he goes through some of them in verses 12 to 15, verses 12 to 15.
from verse 16 onwards, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about Millennium Allah has set up so many of Allah has set them is discussed and how she at the beginning was not, you know, she was scared. She didn't know what was happening. Why is it that you know, how am I chosen to do this, and gibreel are the angel was sent to Allah from Allah subhanho wa Taala to communicate
With money and money has set out that we were going to do this, we will give you this child. And she was scared, she was confused. How am I going to bear this child? I'm not someone that has a spouse, I don't have anyone to, you know, to to have a child with how will I be able to show the people that I'm a just honest person and have not done any wrong. But Allah subhanho wa Taala counter heart and told her Don't worry, this is this is our plan. And unless a panel with Anna had a beautiful plan, as we know, and as we'll go through in Sha, Allah, in verse number 23, Allah subhana wa tada highlights the pains that she felt the pains that money Amane has sent them felt, and our mothers
how they feel this pain as well. It's not something that was specific to her. These are pains of child, you know, labor going through the delivery process, the pains of the nine months, the swollen feet, not being able to sleep on the back for nine months, panela that's difficult for us, you know, men, we never have to even consider that for nine months, I can't sleep on my back. No problem. But when a when a mother is pregnant, she can't sleep on her back for for all those months, because the baby might suffocate inside of the inside of the womb, it might actually kill the baby in the stomach of the mother. So she has to sacrifice that and she sacrifices you know, the foods that she
used to like to eat now she gives up those foods. And she gives up, you know, doing the things that she enjoyed doing because she wants to take care of this baby, make sure that the baby is okay and protected. And we noticed that then the hormones start to kick in, and the mother will want to eat certain foods that she normally would dislike. So for example, someone that might like to eat a lot of chocolates, all of a sudden the mother now hates to eat chocolate, right? She wants to eat like pickles and salty things and chips and crackers and so on and so forth. So everything starts to change. And these are the pains that a mother would go through. But then Madame Anna has sent them
she's talking about the pains of the actual delivery. Now, the pains of the delivery.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that at that point in time, she actually wished death. And she says she was wish death not only because of what she's going through in terms of the pain, but she's wishing death because she doesn't know how the people are going to react when she comes back. When she goes back to civilization goes back to the people because she left the town she went outside in the outskirts and Allah subhanho wa Taala provided for her this date tree and she leans against the date palm tree, she delivers this child and Isa Allah has sent them and Allah subhana wa Taala says he cries out to her and tells her everything is going to be okay. As we see in verse number.
Verse number What is it? 2524 Yeah, in verse number 24, but he called her he called to her his mother, do not grieve your Lord has provided beneath you a stream of last panel with Allah provided for her. And
we noticed that she had not only this stream that is mentioned that's provided for her in terms of drink, Allah subhana wa tada then mentions in the in the verses the date palm tree, shake the tree, shake the tree, and from it will come the the fruits, which is the dates for her to eat, and we discussed that earlier. So we won't go over it in sha Allah to Adam, in verse number 33. Actually, that's not where he saw that his setup speaks in verse number 24.
That's not his mo he speaks. That's in verse number 33 so in verse number 33,
Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how a Salah has salam, money am Allah has Sallam was told by Allah subhanho wa Taala pointed rissa point to Him and He will speak right He will speak he will be the one to show you or to tell the people what exactly happened. That he is a divine gift from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Actually, I should say he's a miracle of Allah subhanho wa Taala not a divine because divine is tied into lordship and we don't want to associate any lordship with Isa Allah His center. So he is a gift from Allah Subhana which is a miracle from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so as it has said,
in verse number 33,
he calls out and he says, What sent him or Allah Yama will lead to Yama move to a yoga way yoga, hatha yoga. So he tells the people that I am a messenger that is sent and I will grow to be someone who's a leader. And he confirms and affirms in this point, that He is someone who yoma moved to that he will pass away where Yeoman will lead to that that is something that happened from Allah subhanho wa Taala that he that he was born from money of Allah has sent Him and He will
Die he will leave where yoma Uber has to hire and the day that he was returned or had returned to Allah Subhana which Allah without dying, while yoma Uber I feel higher that he returned to Allah subhanho wa Taala a life hate. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us here are three things that Aris Allah His Salaam was born, right he was born, and that ERISA alayhis salaam he will die, he will die. But besides he sent him has not died yet. He's still alive. He returned to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He went up to a monster panel with Allah and he will return and be from amongst this oma. He will be one of the members of the home of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, is he the last
and final messenger of Allah? No, he was a messenger that came before and he will come to this ummah, as a follower of Muhammad Sallallahu Miranda usnm. How beautiful is the dean that Allah subhana wa China has provided us that one of the prophets of the past had asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to be part of this oma and he will return and be from amongst the followers of Muhammad, he will not call to anything new, he will not call to his message that he was given. He will not call us towards the Bible and what the Bible had said, meaning the traditional Bible the original scriptures that were given to society his sent him, he won't call towards that. Rather, he will call
to the Quran and call to the message that was delivered to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And he said, alayhis salaam, he then affirms in the next verses,
verses 34, to 37,
that he is a servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala, not a son of God, he is not a son of God. And that goes against the traditions of who, the Christians, right, the Christians who claim that he is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, that He is God, he's the son of God, but he's also the Holy Spirit how that happens. Only Allah subhanaw taala knows. In fact, I asked a Reverend when I was in Malaysia, who had come to Malaysia, from Winnipeg from Canada. And he's the head of the Canadian, I forgot what it was called the Canadian Association of reverence or something of that sort. And I asked him, I said, you know, I'm writing a chapter for a book on Christianity. And I need to write a
chapter on the Trinity. So I was writing at the time, a book that's actually taught at the Islamic University in Malaysia right now. And I wrote the chapter on Christianity. But I had to write this chapter.
being fair, being fair to Christianity, meaning showing what Christianity actually says and promotes and believes what Christians believe. But at the same time, not trying to invite Muslims away from Islam and into Christianity. So it was a little tricky. And so I wanted to understand both from the Muslims perspective, as well as a non Muslims perspective, what this Trinity is all about. So I asked him, I said, Listen, you're the head of the reverence, you know, association of Canada, can you let me know what the Trinity is? Explain the Trinity to me. And his response was, that's probably the the, the one thing that's impossible to explain, as like, Okay, well, I need to
understand it, because I have to write about it. And he said, even the pope would not even be able to fully explain the Trinity. Right. So no one can can fully explain what the Trinity is. And I was like, Okay, can you give me a layman's term, a layman's explanation for what the Trinity is. And so he said, Imagine an old school cinema theater, not like we have today where it's projected old school, meaning there's actually actors who come on stage. But those actors and actresses in the olden days would also have a mask. So they would play multiple characters, right, that one actor or actress would play multiple characters by simply putting that mask in front of their face. So that's
one person who's an who's a character in the play, they hold the mask in front of their face, they become another character in the play, they hold this other third character, or mask in front of their face in their third character. That is an explanation of the Trinity. like okay, does that go Oh, hey, that doesn't make much sense in in the in the religious perspective, but if that's the best that you can do, then does that come along? heighten? Thank you very much, right? That was pretty much it. So some had a lot. Even the Christians themselves are confused with regards to the Trinity. And Isa and in his center, he came to clarify that he himself said, I'm not a son of God. He said
it. It's in the Bible itself. It even reads there that he you know, is is is none but a follower to God. And he calls out to God, when he's making prayer, he calls out to God in the Bible. So some kind of Allah Subhana Allah shows us how even the Christians who in their scripture are changing it and trying to make it more clear
understandable, more adaptable to 2015, the year that we're living in and every single year, you notice that it changes and, and and becomes a little more understandable. But you can't try to make something understandable if it was set a specific way traditionally,
traditionally go to it in its original sense, and you will understand it in the original sense. esala huseynov does not say that he is God, nor does he say that he's a son of God. So why do we need to change that? Why do we need to make it more understandable? That's because people have changed the religion and not understood what they were doing. Right. they've they've not done anything more except changing the religion. Right. And so lots of headwinds, and it shows us how our society has set up. He says in these verses, he's a servant of God, servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he is not the son of a loss of a lot or have got in verses 41 to 45. Now Allah subhana
wa, tada transitions into other prophets. So here he transitions into the Prophet Ibrahim. And this is where Ibrahim alayhis salaam tries to convince his father and he uses beautiful language when he's when he's communicating with his father. He says he had a better idea of at the age of 80. Yeah, a bit the over and over. He mentioned that I think four times in these verses, verses 41 to 45. With codefuel kitabi Ibrahim in the who can asleep Deacon nebbia that he was someone who is truthful, someone who is trustworthy, and he was a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If quality Abbi Yeah, Betty Lima taboo? Why is it that you worship something other than Allah? subhanho? wa
Taala? Why is it that you worship these idols? And he kept asking him?
Oh, my father, and in fact, if you try and translate this word of God, it can't really be translated fully. Because the meaning in Arabic is so heavy, right? And that's the Arabic language not in this word alone. In many of the words in the Arabic language, they're so heavy that you can't really translate it. Like imagine your son or your daughter coming to you and say, Oh, my dearest father. Oh, my dearest Mother, how many of our children come to us and say that, right? They might say abou G. Which is, okay, very close. Do some justice. Very close. But in English, what do we say Dad? Right? Or even closer, daddy? Right? Which is more like,
nicer. Or they say father, but not many children say father, any anyone here their child calls him father? No, or any child call their father Father. No one says father, right. So in Arabic, some handler, we don't see that, you know, the children just say a B, they say, which is like, Oh, my dearest father. Right? Very simple, though. very concise, very sweet. And Ibrahim Allah has sent him he comes to his father, when his father is upset with him. His father, you know, is is upset with him because he disagrees with what Ibrahim alayhis salaam is telling him what he's trying to teach him. So he says, Oh, my father.
Why do you worship that which does not hear and does not see and will not benefit you at all. It can't hear it can't see, it's not going to benefit you. And he knows Ibrahim alayhis. Salam is preaching to the choir. He's telling this to his father, his father is the person who takes the stones, brings them inside his workshop and carves the stone into the idols and then sells it to the people.
Right, he's telling his father, these things are just stone, you know yourself that it can't hear you. It can't see you. And it can't benefit you in any way, shape or form. Why is it that you worship these? Why is it that you do this? Then he says Oh, my father, indeed, there has come to me of knowledge that which has not come to you. So follow me, I will guide you, I will guide you to an even path to something that is moderate, something that actually makes sense. Then he says Oh, my father again. He's continuously having this dialogue with his father, as he says,
Oh, my father,
do not worship shaitan indeed, Trayvon or Satan has ever been the most. Sorry, indeed. shavon has ever been to the Most Merciful disobedient, so shaytaan in the shape on account and nivola harmony, as the year has been very disobedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala, the one who is most merciful. So he's calling his own father away from ship telling him stop doing this. Don't do what you're doing. Then he continues. Yeah, Betty in a half. Oh, my father. I indeed I fear that there will touch you a punishment from the Most Merciful, the one who is most merciful. He's telling his father, I fear that even though he's so merciful. A punishment will come to you. A punishment will come to you. Why
because of your ways what you're doing in terms of shift
So you would be to shape on a companion in the Hellfire right? Now he's telling this to his father, trying to convince his father come away from the actions of these people, the people who you carve these idols for, step away from it. Now look at the response, his father said,
Have you no desire for my gods or Ibrahim? Right? Have you no desire for what I do? Like, it's as though his craftsmanship is what's important here. That he's, he's perfect. He's doing something in carving these idols, it's so beautiful. Have you no desire in these, like, look at this. It's amazing, right? And he's saying,
if you do not desist, I will surely stone you. So avoid me for a prolonged time meaning leave, get out of here, go away. Now imagine your parents tell you to leave. Simply because you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, that's a reality for many people that our time, especially people who maybe are not born Muslim, and enter Islam, start practicing Islam and their families, tell them get out. Leave. That's a reality. Sometimes, that is even a reality for families who are not so practicing islamically. But then they notice one of their children, whether it's a son or a daughter starts to become more islamically aware and more conscious of the deen and starts to practice and getting
closer to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and they tell them, Hey, leave this outside of our house. Right? Islam is here in the heart, and they point to the heart. Islam is in our heart, just leave it there. We live in North America, you don't need to wear this hijab, you don't need to pray five times a day, you don't need to show your identity Islamic, you know, your Islamic identity publicly keep it in your hearts and don't show it to anyone else. This is Canada. Right? We noticed that there's Muslim families that do that. Maybe not so much here in Toronto, I don't know, I haven't met many families here in Toronto. But I know in Montreal, or in Quebec, I should say in the province in
general, because life is a little bit more different there. You have the pressure from the French. And then you have different ethnic backgrounds, you have higher concentration of people who came from Algeria, people who came from Tunisia and people who came from Morocco. And because of what happened in their countries with the French invasion, in you know, Tunisia and Algeria, and the way that they were brought up the way that they were brought up and then left and came over to Canada and living in, in a French province, they're reminded of what they went through in their countries back home. So a lot of them they leave off Islam, they don't want to show that they're Muslim on the
outside, but inside of their home, they're Muslim. So they'll pray, they'll fast right? They'll do everything don't even speak Arabic sometimes or even the majority of the time inside of their house, but outside of their house. They're French they're like fully French and the blue the can we have some bread and you know it's all this you know, the bread and the cheese and they love that culture, the French culture. So Pamela inside of their house, it's like couscous and lamb and you know, it's beautiful Mashallah, it smells good. You can smell it coming from the windows. Alright, so Allah subhana wa tada has showed us
how Islam should be practiced, not only internally but externally. So Ibrahim alayhis salaam is told from his father leaf, go, if you continue this way, I'm going to stone you I'm going to kill you. And we know that Ibrahim alayhis salam, as we'll discuss later on in the Quran, as we go through it, they built the big fire and they threw him into the fire and alas pan with Allah said, When
narrow Cooney barudan wa sallam and Allah Ibrahim told the fire to be calm and cool for Ibrahim not too cold, not too hot, just perfect for Ibrahim Allah has sent him and then he escaped from the fire. When the fire subsided he just simply walked out of the fire. Then Allah subhana wa tada after transitioning from Ibrahim and then the response from aza.
He moves on into discussing Musa Allah His setup, and how Musa alayhis salaam had that dialogue between fear our own and we'll see more of that very shortly when we get into sort of Baja.
Verses 66 to 70. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions how human beings are amazed with how Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring us back to life after death.
And he says it in a way that we shouldn't be amazed. Why are you amazed? Someone who created
Allah subhanho wa Taala created you Why are you amazed that from nothing you were created and brought into this life and you will die and you will be brought back to life after this life. So you had existed before anyways, your soul existed and Allah subhana wa tada brought you to life.
Life in this life, and then we'll give you death and bring you back to life. Why are you amazed if Allah created us, he can bring us back to life after he gives us death. Then in verse number 71, Allah subhana wa tada goes on,
and says, how we will all of us without exception, see Johanna. And that's because we will travel over the bridge that leads to gender. So that Sirat that bridge that goes into gender, that is known to be just like the edge of a sword, meaning extremely thin, that bridge each and every one of us will have to cross over and while crossing over into what is underneath it jahannam so we will all even for a split second witness, Johanna, some will see it for only, you know, a split second because it will travel over the bridge at the speed of light. Others will travel over the bridge at the speed of wind as a prophet sent along ready to send dimensions, some will travel over it, you
know, going a little bit slower, like the speed of a horse, the fastest horse and then at the speed of the fastest cow, right, and some will go over at their own pace.
And so every single one of us will witness jahannam before reaching genda. And that's the plan of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah as he mentioned, in verse number 71, we move on to verse 82.
Verse 82, Allah subhanho wa Taala
in verse number 82.
It's that time where you can't drink water or you need to drink water.
In verse number 82, Allah subhanho wa Taala
mentions how the gods of the people that they worshipped in this dunya will actually testify against those people on the Day of Judgment, that they will say that they were in No need to be worshipped. They they didn't deserve to be worshipped. They were worshipped but they didn't expect to be worshipped. They didn't plan to be worshipped. They didn't try to be worshipped, but people worship them. And so they will testify against those people that worship them on in this world, they will do that in the day on the day of judgment in verses 96 to 9898, to Lhasa, penguin to Allah places love in the hearts of the people, for those who are righteous. So Allah subhanho wa Taala in verses 96
and 98, he says, In the larina m Anwar Amina solly hottie, c'est la jolla, Muhammad would, indeed those who have believed and done righteous deeds, the Most Merciful will appoint for them affection. So, Mohammed referring to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have only made this an easy in the Arabic language, that you may give good tidings thereby to the righteous and warn thereby a hostile people warn those who go against it.
And how many we have destroyed before them of generations, do you perceive of them, anyone or hear from them a sound where they, as Allah subhanho wa Taala highlighted of the people of the past, they are no longer seen no longer heard, he destroyed them, and they have gone and left. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala ends that sort of talking about how those who are righteous will be loved by those who are around them, he will place the love for the righteous people in the hearts of those who are around them. And we noticed this we see people who are good, not only the scholars from amongst us, we look at you know substantial other scholars around the world, how we love them, we desire to be
with them and sit with them and talk to them and ask them advice, but some kind of love from the righteous people as well. People who are not necessarily islamically you know, learned that they spend their entire life learning Islam, but they're just good individuals, genuine individuals. You love to be with them. You notice that when you sit with them, they give you something you know, maybe I saw uncle he's giving us he used to give me tea when we were having our Hanukkah but since we're fasting there's no tea. So Pamela you just like when you see me like Mashallah uncle gives you tea, right? So you feel good, you feel inclined to be around those people, people who do good
righteous deeds, and do it sincerely for the sake of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala you only want to be in their company because you feel good.
Because there's a love that was placed inside of your heart for those people, we move on to sort of Baja we have about 15 minutes to cover two schools in short a lot of time.
And so on Taha Allah subhanho wa Taala, from verses one to eight, he mentions how this quote urn was sent as a reminder, not as distress. It wasn't sent as something to scare everybody and stir up a commotion and make people confused and start to feel as though we're all going to be destroyed and the world is going to be destroyed. No, it was sent as a reminder, live on this earth. Allah subhanho wa Taala gave you this life, live on the earth enjoy from the things of this earth that have been made hallen for us, whether you have 50,000 100,000 10,000 1,000,010 million, enjoy the things on a lesser panel antenna has given you on the face of this earth. This is the life that he
gave you to live. But don't be distracted from the remembrance of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, from what has been given to us on Earth. That's the key that you can enjoy from all the bounties and blessings on Earth. But don't ever for a moment turn away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Don't forget who created you and that's why I kind of want to add to one of the reasons why we have our Salah our prayer, that we are reminded constantly of who we are, and who Allah subhanaw taala is, and where we stand in the in the ranks of Allah subhana wa Tana and ourselves, we are right at the bottom and a loss of high tide is at the very top right. And unless palitana reminds us all the time. During our
day in our prayers, we turned to him and what do we say When do we start our prayer on law?
And we submit to us panelists and we fully submit we raise our hands, I mentioned that to you earlier, you know, when someone is committing a robbery, let's say they've gone into a bank
to rob the bank. And as they come out of the bank, right, the police are there surrounding the bank, and they come out and they say freeze and I don't want to do any hand gestures, right? Because we're recording c threes, right? What do the people do? Those robbers when they come out of the bank immediately without even being told, put your hands up? They put their hands up, they freeze they put their hands up like Okay, all right. What does that symbolize the submission? I submit, okay, you're in charge. I submit. What do we do when we start our prayer? Well, we move our hands from here down to here, right? And we submit to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Why? Because we're letting
go of everything on the doing of the dunya everything outside we're just letting go of it. Let go, let go. Let go with everything of the dunya right now what are you doing? I'm standing in front of Allah subhana wa Tada, Allah. I have nothing my hands have left it on. Everything is gone. I'm just connecting with our last panel. Right? So simple, so easy to understand. So our last panel with Anna tells us that he sent this quote and as a reminder, in verses 11 to 16 Moosa Hana has sent him is given the revelation at the point in time where he's asked to go to the, the the daddy or the valley known as he goes to the,
the Valley of throw up where there's a fire and he's called, he's being called, he's looking, he's basically lost. And he's looking for a sign a landmark, something where he could find his way to get back into Egypt. And Musa alayhis salam goes to this fire and he sees the fire and there'll be some kind of way to Allah gives him revelation. The fire is not revelation for him, it was just something that called him into that direction. Okay, so people think oh, you know, Musa alayhis salam was called to the fire and he went to the fire why the fire the fires from john them? Well, the fire is what we use on earth in terms of heat and light, right, especially at that time, in the middle of in
the middle of nowhere, in the middle of, you know, the desert, for example, or walking through the forest. If you see fire well, fire means civilization, someone is there, there's warmth, there's heat, there must be food as well. So you go towards it, and that's what Allah subhana wa tada did. He pulled him away and guided him there so he can give him the revelation.
In verses 17 to 35, I'm gonna pick up the pace in Sha longtown
musala his setup is given a number of miracles from Allah subhanho wa Taala. One of them is his staff. When he throws it to the ground, it turns into a snake. So he used this eggs he also was given from Allah subhanho wa Taala, his brother, his brother, who could be his support. Now we know that musala his setup, he said, rubbish and I mean solidary wire Sydney Emery larocco datamine Nisa Annie, you have come come early, so he asked some awesome hanway to Allah. Rubbish. Lee sorry. He was scared to go to fit our own worried, you know what, what if he doesn't understand? So he said I only saw did he make my heart content?
I'm okay with this. I'm going to go ahead and do it. This is the command of the last panel to Allah. We are certainly agree and make this easy for me. I'm content with it make it easy for me. I'll go ahead with it. What will work that melissani musala is another had a list. You had a list. You have got who Kohli's we asked last time with Allah to untie the knot of his tongue. Not only is the Lisp here mentioned by the scholars, but in terms of being nervous and going and speaking to fit our own, the home that raised musala his setup where the fit around was looking to kill every other child, you know, to or every child every odd year to, to make sure that Moosa has sent him was not born and
not raised, he ends up raising him in his own house. And so Moosa is now going back to speak to the thinner island to the Pharaoh and to tell him to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he asks the last hand with Hannah for a few things, and one of the things that he asks of us pilots and his his brother how to go with him to be support for him and to help him along the way.
So Allah Subhana Allah mentions that they're in verses 43 and 44 Musa alayhis salaam is told by Allah subhanho wa Taala, as we see here, for Kula
Colin ley de la la jolla tada yaksha. So in verses 43 and 44, musante, his Sena is speaking to or is going to speak to fit around and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells him to speak for bolena who, Colin lejana a soft speech, don't go down and be like
that, oh, come out. Listen to me, right? No, I must paranoids Allah says go to him and speak to him using wisdom and soft speech. Be calm.
Use that speech that is going to be understood, and not the wording that is harsh. Don't just get up in his face, because that's not going to happen, right? This is our own. He's someone who will literally just say, Get out of here, right? And just tell his guards to take you away. Go and try and convince him use good words. And that's a lesson for us when we're trying to speak to others about Islam, or someone is bashing Islam, just like Fernando was doing. He was calling against everything that Allah Subhana Allah loves, he was going against it. And Musa alayhis salam was going to speak to the person who was completely against the command of Abbas palitana. Just like you and
I, when we go and we speak to someone who's disgracing Islam or disgracing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam use wisdom in our speech, as we spoke about yesterday, and speak to them nicely, even if they yell at you. Use peace, use calmness, use wisdom use hikma, because that is more powerful than simply saying something back with anger.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on in verses 49 to 56 explaining how musala his sin tries to make the phenomenon understand by using the signs of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And again, Moosa tries to address the situation, but their own doesn't want to listen to any of those signs. He thinks that he's more powerful. And he uses his magicians in that sense, and tries to convince musala his center that he's more powerful, but then the magicians they see what Moosa has the miracles that he has one of them being that staff, when he threw it to the ground, and it became a snake, they knew that there's no way this can actually be a optical illusion, something done out of magic, like people do
card tricks, magic tricks and stuff like that. There's no way that this could be an illusion. This has to be from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they all accept the call of Musa Allah has sent him to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. This infuriates Pharaoh, he gets extremely upset. And he says, I'm going to cut off the opposite limbs. So the right leg, the left arm or the left leg, the right arm, and so they flee, and they are being attacked or chased by the army of Pharaoh and then they get to the Red Sea. And moose Allah has sent them parts of the Red Sea as we discussed a few days ago.
And they get to the other side of the Red Sea, all of these things are discussed and mentioned in this war. So I thought that talks about the story of Musa alayhis Sena in verses 102 to 104, Allah Subhana Allah mentions again, the trumpet and the blowing of the trumpet, right and we discussed this in our Hanukkah last week. But alas, pan with Allah goes on and says how the mountains will be destroyed, simply very easily into like dust. Mountains come to dust, and that's the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala verse
13 and 14, Allah subhana wa tada says that the Quran was revealed so we can have Taqwa and reflect. And this ties in with the very first verses of the surah. How we mentioned
how Allah subhanho wa Taala said that he sent the Quran as a reminder and not something that would cause distress. So the ending of the sutra ties in with the beginning of the sutra, right? The ending of the sutra ties in with the beginning of the surah. how Allah Subhana Allah says that he said before and as a reminder, and something that is going to increase us in taqwa. It's not causing distress to us as Muslims, it's increasing our EMA. And then in verses 131 and 132, don't look at those with wealth, and who have been blessed with, you know, beautiful luxuries on Earth. Don't look at them and feel sad. And why does Allah subhanho wa Taala tell us this, don't look at them and be
saddened by what you see they have have the luxuries of this world. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala then says, pray, and be patient, because you will have much better this life is temporary, we know that it's temporary. And we will only live in this world, those that actually have wealth, extreme abundant amounts of wealth. We know that. So can they enjoy that wealth, but
eventually, it just becomes one. Eventually, it just becomes normal.
And I know this, because we know we know some, you know, wealthy people that that you've probably have interacted with in your life, someone who has wealth, and I'm not saying billions, maybe not even millions, but maybe people that have hundreds of 1000s that they just enjoy what our last panel data has given us on the face of this earth, right? enjoy having a nice house, a nice car, going on vacation, enjoying the things that our last panelist has given us. But eventually it becomes boring. It's like, Okay, I know that I can buy whatever I want.
Now what? And that's where when a person starts to question, now what, that's exactly what Allah subhana wa tada is waiting for Islam. That's what Islam, worship Allah subhanho wa Taala don't just enjoy this life thinking you're going to live forever. This is where a lot of handle it. And when you start to lose that focus of this world, you're like, what's, what's the point of this world? Well, there is a point. And the point is Allah subhanho wa Taala. Hana is waiting for you to turn to him. We move on to the next one shot Allah Tada. We only cover 50 verses of the surah.
And we can do so in a few minutes in sha Allah, just to give us a gist of what's going on in salthill ambia, which is the 21st surah, the slaughter of the prophets, and we've gone through a number of the prophets already. So here, Allah subhana wa tada in these 50 verses, really what is happening is Allah Subhana. Allah is summing up all of what he discussed with regards to the prophets that we've already spoken about. He's summing them all up into these verses.
So a lot begins by talking about the hour and how the hour is near. But human beings are still heedless, not thinking of it. And like we said earlier, it's not tangible. It's not in front of us, we're not seeing it. So it doesn't have that effect on us right now. But the prophets called towards the loss of Hannah Montana, because there wouldn't be an hour and the hour is coming in the hours near then Alice pan winter, and it goes into talking about the creation and how the creation was made with justice and wisdom, again, tying in the previous profits that they were made. Sorry, they were sent not as extraterrestrial, you know, beings that came from different planets, they were
human beings as well. They were sent to their people to call to the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala Hanna, verses 21 to 29 refutation of false gods and how Allah subhanho wa Taala sent those messengers to clarify it. So those people that were worshipping the false gods, Allah subhana wa tada here mentions, I sent you messengers, those messengers were sent to warn you about what you were doing that ship that worship of those gods or false gods, we should say that you thought were true and truthful. You know, you you were worshipping them throughout your life, but our messengers came to tell you that you shouldn't have been doing that, versus 38 to 40 the idol worshipers would
ask for their punishment. Again, this is summing up all of what happened in the lives of the previous prophets, right? They were asking bring the punishment. Yeah, we don't believe what you're saying. You're just you're just one of us. You're just a human being. Who are you to tell us that your God is capable of doing you know, all of these different things. Bring us the punishment when we see the punishment, then we'll believe Well, it's too late. Once the punishment comes, it's too late, like we discussed in the lives of the previous prophets. And then in verses 44 to 47 will conclude with this inshallah Tada. The disbelievers are deceived by the lives filled with love.
luxuries of this world. Again, going back to the end of surah, Baja, right that those who are non Muslims, the disbelievers, the machine, they're deceived by simply running after wealth. They think that life is here on Earth. This is life. This is the eternal life. And what did the prophets of the past used to have to, you know, tell their their people and try and convince their people, that those palaces you have on the top of the mountains, these beautiful homes that you carved inside of the inside of the, you know, the caves and the mountains that we see pictures of today. Those are not the places you're going to live eternally. There's an eternal life after this life. And that's
what those prophets and messengers called towards, they called towards that so Sula to me, Allah subhanho wa Taala puts it together and talks about what these prophets and messengers were calling towards the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala what the statements of the non believers work and so on and so forth. He brings it all together and puts it in one server, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to enjoy from the bounties and blessings that he's placed for us here on this world. There is nothing wrong with indulging in the last panel what Allah has given us from that is the beautiful food that we will go and enjoy in a few minutes after making dua hot and thanking
Allah subhanho wa Taala for all that he's given us all summer long. centimorgan account and Amina Mohammed Radha
