Series: Daood Butt - Ramadan 2015
Explanation of verse 42 of Surah Al-An’aam until the end of the Surah
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala MV mursaleen maybe, you know, we're Habiba Muhammad Ali Abdullah Saleh to atonement asleep and now that my brothers and sisters in Islam said Mr. Allan Kumara from to LA he was on Capitol Hill
so tonight is Nate number six of Ramadan and
Mashallah and half of the first 10 days have gone
right half of the first 10 days have already gone so if you wanted to take advantage of the first 10 days of this month of Ramadan, then you already lost half of them and that's how quickly this month goes you know, before us before we even realize that the month is gone, it's over. And somehow we're back to you know, eating throughout the day and the Tim Hortons and the donuts and you know, all that. And so heavily Ramadan comes with its benefits, we save a little money on food as well right? save money on coffee and food and donuts and all that stuff. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala that, you know, he blesses us with this month and it's important for us to try and take full advantage of
the month of Ramadan is as much as we possibly can. But again, like we said, try and pace yourself you still have another 25 days of Ramadan to go or 24 days to go. So pace yourself inshallah to Allah and get ready for the last 10 nights of Ramadan.
We continue with our tests even shown on the tie that we left off
in the ER, you know, about a quarter of the way through swelter.
And we'll continue today from verses number 40 to 44 of soda to land and soda to enhance sorry.
And now I don't know if I mentioned yesterday, in English, if we were to translate an A now what does it translate into? Who can tell us cattle, right cattle, cattle of different sorts, not just cows, but cattle of cows and sheep and ox and camel and different types of animals. And the loss of Hannah Montana will show us exactly why this was called an M, at the end of the suit on Chateau Montana. We see it throughout the slaughter, but it focuses a lot more on it at the end of the surah. So in verse 4244, loss of panela to Hannah here, he points out how emotionally keen they call upon the loss of handle attalla during times of difficulty, and this is contrary to what we normally
say about the machine right that they don't call upon the loss of hanaway data, but in times of difficulty, they do exactly that they turn to a boss or Panama to hide it. And so Allah subhana wa tada says, rulu beenleigh Jimenez che Bonnie m lodgy. I'm going to call a taco I'm sorry.
irons, my eyes are blinded and I'm reading a different verse off the top of my head.
This meaningless Bismillah Ar Rahman ar bloggy. Well,
in Kumara, buma, he added como se to have a more heated room that you
saw in the in and so Allah subhanho wa Taala. Here he mentions how those who when they're in a time of difficulty, they're going to turn to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Have you considered if they're came to you the punishment of Allah or their came to you that our is it other than Allah, you would invoke, if you should be truthful, and it goes on to discuss this. So Allah Subhana, WA, tada highlights this, and we see it throughout the time of the companions and Sahaba on the love and home, how sometimes when they would, you know, get onto a ship and travel in a ship, you know, they would go out over the waters. And the motion again, they would then invoke a loss of Hannah Montana,
they would turn to a loss of Hannah Montana, and ask him for safety and security. And that's normal. They're not people who are used to going out over the water, they're people of the desert, right. And so they get onto a ship. And it's scary. It's just like someone who's never been in an airplane before. And all of a sudden, you know, they fly in an airplane and turbulence hits. And that's a beautiful example for us to try and comprehend as well. You know, you're flying in the airplane. And everyone is just minding their own business, doing their own thing, eating their food, listening to whatever they want to listen to watching whatever's on the, you know, the onboard display, and so on
and so forth. And they're just enjoying themselves in this flight thinking, I'm going on vacation, I'm going somewhere nice, or I'm returning back home, whatever the case is, and suddenly a loss of Hannah Montana hits you with turbulence, and the plane just
right, drops, you know, 50 feet, 60 feet, which is not much when you're traveling at 35,000 feet, right? That slight drop in our hearts and our minds. We think, Oh, this is terrible. This is really bad. What's happening and all of a sudden you hear people yelling
out, oh my god. Right? The same people that don't even claim to worship have to worship Allah subhana wa tada and don't claim to worship God, all of a sudden they're yelling out, oh my god, why? Because it's the fifth round. It's naturally inside of us. When we're scared, it comes out, the truth comes out, all right, and so must handle it. And it shows us in a beautiful example that applies to our own life instead of just using the example of the, you know, the mushrikeen at the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam getting onto a ship, but also those that are mostly keen or you know, have different faiths and different religions are those that are of no religion.
When they're on a plane or in a time where they're scared. You'll notice that they turn to a loss of hand what to add.
Then in verse number 46, Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on.
And he shows us
simply an eye opener from a muscle kind of what I have, right this is verse number 46, almost upon which it says, will a tune in
some Akuma Busan Akuma Houghton aku become Maha de Marana coup de come in.
Here to be
a fun summary for
last panel which it says, say O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Have you considered if Allah should take away your hearing, and your sight and set a seal upon your hearts, which deity or which God other than Allah subhanho wa Taala could bring them back to you. Look how we diversify the verses, then they still turn away. So Allah Subhana Allah tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell them, we should again, tell the people that you're calling towards the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Have you considered? Have you thought of what would happen? If, as the last panel attorney says, you were to lose your hearing? Right? Unless kind of attalla was to take away your
hearing? Or he was to take away your sight? Right? Or he was to put a seal upon your hearts? Who would you then turn to, and you ask yourself if you're in a time of difficulty, and you lose your sight. And so how I was thinking of this last night, and I was driving back and I was really tired. And we were stopped at a red light. And I was just looking to my left out the left side window, right, the the driver side window, and I was looking out the window and there was a gas station. And for some reason, my eyesight just because I was tired, you know, just like, just twinge a little bit. And I thought, what if my eyesight was to be taken away at this very moment? What would happen?
Like how would I feel? And I was looking at the buildings at that moment, I thought, looking at the buildings, looking at the colors of the bricks in the different, you know, design of the of the buildings. And then I thought how would I remember this exact image, if a year two years, three years down the line, my eyesight was taken away. And I could not see anything ever again. Would I still remember this image? So Pamela, you know, I think of it today. And I can remember at this very moment that image and ask Allah subhana wa tada to not remove our eyesight from us. If this is best for us to keep it for us. Because really, it's a blessing from Allah subhana wa, it's an honor to be
able to see, to be able to see your children to be able to see your brothers, your sisters, your family, your spouse, right, it's a blessing from loss of habitat. And you you never think of it. But what if Allah subhana wa tada took away the eyesight took away the hearing, all of a sudden you're sitting here, and it's as though the microphone turned off, all the electricity turned off, and I stopped speaking, and you're just sitting there wondering what's what's going on? Why did you stop speaking What's happening? But yet I was still speaking, but you just couldn't hear? How would that be? How would we be able to deal with the situation? And I was palitana reminds us in this verse?
Who would you turn to? You know, people go to the hospital, and they go to the doctor and seek assistance. So the first thing that people think of whether it's Muslim or non Muslim, a lot of people will think Firstly, let's go to the doctor, you need to see a doctor, something's wrong, right? And then when you go to the doctor and the doctor checks and does some tests, and they don't know what the what the problem is, and they're trying to figure out a diagnosis, you start to then remember a loss of habitat. And then you think you know what, let me just recite some call and so you take out your phone and you open your an application that you haven't opened in a long time. And
then you start to read through it right, start to read through it and then you make dua to Allah subhana wa tada and you think you know what, it's time for Salah let me go pray. When you're sitting waiting for the doctor to come back and you're like, you know, it's okay, let me just go and pray and I'll come back
All of a sudden you now became very holy, right? He became very religious, very connected to all of us accountable with Aaron. And this is what I was telling us. Sometimes for some people, they will require a test, they will wait for something big and severe to happen to them. And you know, subpanel I remember when I was much younger,
a family member of ours, something had happened to him, and he was in the hospital. And this was, you know, a time where it was much needed for this person to receive a wake up call from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I remember at that time making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala make this person gives them a cure, and make them turn to you make them realize that the health that they have no one not even the doctors can do anything for you in that case. Why? Because Allah habitat is the one that created us. He gave us the health that we have, he gave us the eyesight that we have, he gave us the smell that we have, you know, so Canada, we think, where's our scent, it goes through
our nose, right? But where is that smell coming from? Like we smell the food at the time of its thought. And it's such a beautiful scent. But if we were to put our finger on the place that we smell from, you know, it's like it doesn't make sense. Yes, you could say okay, the taste buds have something to do with it. And we have sensors in our in our body that pick up the scent and the smell and it's tied in with our brain and then it ties in with our stomach as well and we feel hungry. But Allah subhana wa tada created it, if he takes it away. No one can give it back to you. It's gone. It's finished. Then who will you turn to? Then you will turn to Allah subhana wa Tada. Right. no
other God that people would worship. No other deity no other item or being no other statue that's made out of stone that can't even smell itself. They can't even see can't even hear. Why would you turn to something that can't do that when you can do it yourself. Right? And so Allah subhana wa tada reminds us here in these verses the importance of turning to Allah subhana wa tada during times of difficulty. We move on to verse number 5254, where the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is mentioned as being a just as sorry is mentioned as being just a messenger, right? He is not a God. He is not someone who knows the unseen he is a messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala
kulula coumarin de casa Casa La he wanna
come in mnemonic in a w.
Ne esta we are mo What about sleep, finance data
on swamp masukkan, who points out here that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he himself declares, as not being someone that knows the unseen, he knows, you know what Allah subhanho wa Taala knows, know, whatever he knows, and whatever he says is because he was told to say it and do that. And that is not the knowledge of the unseen knowledge of the unseen is literally what we don't know what we don't see what we haven't experienced. And that remains with Allah subhanho wa Taala. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't have that knowledge. And he wasn't someone that was, you know,
in terms of in terms of his status, more than a human being. Right, he wasn't some sort of being that was expected or people should worship rather Allah subhanho wa Taala sent him as a messenger and the prophet and one who would deliver the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala and encourage us to turn to Allah in our worship. And so Mohammed sent along Ida who ascend them says here, I do not tell you that I have the depositories containing the provisions of Allah subhana wa tada has that in of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning the the knowledge of things or you know the provisions the wealth the the the bounties, the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada, I don't have it, it doesn't remain with
me. I don't have control over it. That's with a lesser panel what to highlight.
Nor do I say that I know the unseen or nor do I tell you that I am an angel. I only follow what is revealed to me say is the blind equivalent to the seeing, then will you not give a thought? So why don't you think about the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala Why don't you think about what Allah subhana wa tada has given to you and what he's revealed to you
What he asks from you, that you worship Allah Subhana Allah don't worship me. This is what Mohammed salah and he was sending me saying, don't worship Me, I'm just a messenger of Allah I only convey the message right? I am not one to be worthy of worship. Only Allah subhana wa tada has that status. So here the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he really reiterates the fact that he is a messenger and not one to be worshipped.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not have the keys to Allah subhanho wa Taala as treasures as we mentioned, nor does he have the knowledge of the unseen. And then we skip to verse number 59, where Allah subhanho wa Taala
he says that, or he claims that he knows the unseen and lists examples. So we began those first few verses 50 to 50, for how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam states that he does not know the knowledge of the unseen, then Allah subhana wa dialysate states that he has it, he knows the knowledge of the unseen wherever
who, in the who accept Him who have also cannibal attire, right, except a loss of Hannah, what's ahead. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala here says that he is the possessor of the knowledge of the unseen. And he gives examples here as Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
and he knows what is on the land and in the sea? Do we know what's on land? Yeah, we know what's on the land, from what we can see. But right underneath the surface, do we know today I was sitting in, you know, in our kitchen, feeding our children, they're sitting down on the floor eating, and my wife saw a couple of ads.
Do we know that these ads are there, even though they're right inside our house, where we live, and we pay rent, and this is the place that we dwell, we look after it. A few ants came in did we let them in know about our last panelist and let them in. And so a lot knows what's happening. Even inside of our own homes, when we don't even know it. Right. And he knows what's in the seat. And so kinda you know, a beautiful thing to, to try and reflect on the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the signs of his greatness that he's placed for us on the face of this earth, is to sometimes watch a documentary, right, and I'm not plugging it as you know, doing some sort of
promotion. But just so that we can see the things that we don't get to see. So divers have dived to the bottom of the sea, and they've gone to look at what ulcer panguitch Island has created and placed for us at the bottom of the sea. So for example, what's that BBC Earth? I think it is right or something like that, right? Is that it? BBC Earth, something done by BBC.
Planet Earth, right Planet Earth by BBC, right. So somehow they've put together this documentary that you can see things that we would never get to experience in our life, they've gone to the depths of the ocean, they've gone to, you know, the middle of the desert, they've gone to the tops of the mountains and inside caves, in order to document the changes of the environment and things that are happening around us, without us even knowing that they're happening. And so kinda for those of you I know, some of you probably have the HDTVs, right, I don't have a TV. But if you watch it in HD, and turn on, if you have your surround sound, and just try and comprehend what it was kind of
attached as done, you know, you can hear the changes of the, the nature around you and see them as they're happening and the colors changing. And so that is from the blessing of a loss of habitat. And he has the knowledge of that and everything that's happening, as we'll see in the next few verses in sha Allah. So Allah Subhana Allah, He says, not a leaf falls, but that he knows it. And no rain is there within the darkness of the earth, and no moist or dry thing, but that it is written in a clear record meaning of us have had without and knows it, it's recorded, he knows that it's happening, right. And he mentions a few things here. Imagine that it will help you when Noah right,
like so Pamela must handle it. And as we'll see in a few verses, and I always get excited when I'm talking about the signs of a loss of habitat is greatness, right? A seed, if you put it into the ground, and you put some water over it, right, there's soil and you give it some water, and you give it some time and the sun shines on it. And then surely, the seed it cracks open and it starts to sprout out is see the sprout coming out, and then the roots go into the ground, and then it pierces through the the surface of the earth. And then you'll notice Pamela starts to grow this little green stem, and then a leaf might come and then it grows bigger and a flower and then it grows taller and
then fruits or vegetables start to grow from it, who allows that to happen.
That same seed that you can take and put in your pocket.
Put in your pocket. It's nice and safe, right? Just like putting it in the earth. It's dark. It's, you know, protected, but it's dark, you put it in your pocket, it's dark, it's protected that right? Take your job or your shirt, throw it in the washing machine, give it some water, give it some water, take it out, hang it outside, give it some sun. Are you going to see anything growing from that seed? Probably not? Probably not. Right? You won't see anything growing from the seed.
Why? Because the loss of habitat is the one that gives it the ability to grow. Even if something is growing from that seed that's in your pocket. Did you command it to grow? Did you give it the ability to grow? Did you crack it open? Did you pull that sprout out of the seed? How did you do that? Didn't did you make that leap? Where did the leaf come from? Write that all comes from a loss of habitat. And here this is what a loss of habitat is telling us that He is the Creator and the one who knows everything and how it happens.
And we move on inshallah to add in verse number. We just did 60 in verse sorry, do we do 60 or 5959? Right verse number 60. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, who will lead the toa? Kumi Laney yrI la Jara
Allah subhanho wa Taala. Here in verse number 60, he tells us how he controls life, and he gives us death, before we even reach death, he gives it to us. And then he gives us life back before death came to us. Right? If you're confused, let me try and explain. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has given us life, we're all alive. And we're awake. Right now, when we go to sleep, this is considered a minor death, a type of death where a portion or part of our soul goes to a loss of power without right returns to a loss of power to handle. That's a minor death. And some of us have had with Allah gives us life and gives us death at night. And then we wake up in the morning, and he gives us life
again, before we before we actually are given actual death, where our soul is taken out, and then people bury us and put us into the ground. But then Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us life after that death as well. He brings us back to life, on the day of judgment, and we stand before a loss of habitat. And in the in this surah, at the end of this one, I was a candidate, Allah talks about how we will not care for our loved ones on that day, meaning we wouldn't look for them. We're all going to be thinking about our own cells. What about me? What have I done my rewards Am I going to Agenda it's all about me. Right? And so on that day, I lost Hannah Montana, it gives us life again. And
this is what he's referring to here. That he gives us life. He gives us death, he gives us the minor death, he gives us life back. And then death comes again. And then he gives us life after that. So generous is Allah Subhana Allah to write extremely generous that he gives us life and death constantly. without us even knowing that this is happening. We go to sleep, and we don't even know what's happening to our soul. We don't know what's happening to our soul. Right? We're just sleeping. And we wake up and like, it's time for us. And we don't know what's happened to our body throughout that time. But so much has happened to us that we don't even understand. And that's
that's just one aspect of it. What else has happened to your body that you didn't understand? Your heart continued to pump throughout the night? How do you know it? Well, you ask someone to look at you while you're sleeping at night. And they'll tell you Yeah, you continue to have a heartbeat. Right? Did I continue to breathe? Yes, you continue to breathe? Did you control it? Are you the one that's controlling it? And this is one of the last panel antennas highlighting here. His science, his blessings, his bounty upon us and how He created us and how we don't have any control in what happens to us. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one that controls it.
We move on to verse number 70 inch, a lot of data. Here it was a panel to highlight he mentions
leaving those who take their religion as play, so they don't take religion seriously. Those who consider religion as an amusement, and they're deceived by the life of this dunya Allah subhanho wa Taala here in this verse, it's a very lengthy verse. So you can recite it on your own in sha Allah to Allah, he mentions how we should not spend too much time or we should leave off those that consider religion to be a joke. It's just some sort of amusement. It's fun. It's all fun and games. It's just a joke. It's not reality, right? We should not spend too much time with these people.
For them to consider you as their friend. But you should look after people who you'll benefit from as well. So when it comes to friends, now, I want to tie in what we took yesterday and what we're talking about today. When it comes to friends, you should always try to choose people who you will benefit from as being your friends, try to spend your time with them, try to be around them, use, sorry, learn as much as you possibly can from being in their company, right. So you will look for friends who you can benefit from, those people will naturally look for people who they can benefit from.
Right. And the same way that you look to someone else to benefit from as being your friend, there will be people who will look at you as people that they can benefit from,
as someone who they can benefit from. So you will always have friends that will benefit from you. They will be the ones hanging out with you. They will constantly be running after wanting to be with you. And then you will be looking after or trying to be with those friends that you can benefit from. See how it works. That's the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right. He told us yesterday, don't make your close acquaintances, those who are non believers, right? Those who do not follow the deen of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Why? Because there's not much benefit for you that benefit from those who believe in a loss of Hamlet and who you know, from amongst the believers you can
benefit from as well, not just the average believer, someone who you can benefit from, you can gain knowledge from you can be with and by looking at them by by traveling with them by speaking to them by eating with them, you will benefit you will learn something, right. And at the same time, there will be people who will look at you as being someone who they can benefit from as well. So there'll be around you anyways. Right? And that's the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala that you don't need to try and have friends of all different sorts. all different sorts of friends will come your way whether you like it or not, just try to be better, always try to be better. And you will notice that
people will come your way. And so Allah subhana wa tada here, he talks about leaving off those who are distinct from the deen those who mark the deen.
And he mentions at the end of the verse, those who are deceived by the life of this dunya that they consider this life in the dunya to be important and the most important that there's nothing after this. And as Allah subhanho wa Taala just mentioned in the verses before that, that he is the one who will give us life after death. So he highlights the fact that there's a hereafter and then he tells us Don't be with those who are constantly thinking that this world is all that there is. There's something better to come for those who believe. Right? So Allah subhanho wa Taala if we look at how he ties these verses in together, it's absolutely beautiful. Then in verse number 73, Allah
subhana wa tada says, and here I want to highlight the part where in this verse Allah mentions Yom
Tov is so
Allah Subhana Allah, Allah talks about the day where it will be blown into the
into what? The trumpet, right, it will be blown into the trumpet, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has mentioned and I have to say that it's our field has already bowed down his head and he's holding the trumpet. So he's lowered his head and he's holding the trumpet. He's ready and waiting to blow this trumpet. Now, it's kind of scary to hear that. Because this trumpet symbolizes the end of time.
This trumpet symbolizes the beginning of the day of judgment.
And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that the angel has already bowed down his head and he's holding the trumpet, that means he's ready to blow it. He's waiting for the command from Allah subhanho wa tab.
So you ask yourself, have we made Toba because when the End of Times come
when the end of time comes,
about will not be accepted. And we will see major, major signs. The sun now rises in the east and sets in the west. It will rise from the west and set in the east. And that's a moment when elbows no longer accepted whatever sins you've done philosophers with you, you can't ask for forgiveness. It's over. It's done with a wasp handle it Allah does not accept the Toba from then on. Right? And so it's important for us to recognize that the end of times is coming. Now, we should also not get lost in
in this business of saying, Oh, you know, at 2012 is the end of times, and this year is the end of time. And maybe it has to do with that movie that declared that this is the end of times. And so and so scholars saying that because of some mathematical equation, then the end of times is going to be this year or that year. No, nobody knows. Nobody knows. And anyone who states it's a specific year, or it's at this time, and it's going to begin in this place, and that, you know, in in so and so's circumstance, if they're saying that from themselves, and it's not from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu. Either you ascend them, nor is it from a lesser palitana know that that person is a
liar, simple person is a liar, to declare that the end of time is going to happen in a specific year. Like I know some people who actually were following certain individuals in different parts of the world and said, you know, in 2012, is the end of times and that movie that came out was true in 2012. Based on the calculations, we predicted, that's the end of times, What year is it now?
Right? Were they telling the truth? No, that that person is a liar. Simple, right? That person does not know what they're talking about. They're only fabricating things. They're only coming up with things from their own mind. And that is what we should not do with what Allah subhanho wa Taala has declared, and shown us the truth behind it, and reveal tidy from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam giving us signs, and those signs have not come. So how are you in any position to declare that that year is going to be the end of times? You aren't right? So we should not get caught up with those that are going to waste their time and trying to tell us and come up with equations and
come up with scenarios and say, Well this happened. And that's happened because of that. And the airplane symbolizes something and Allah subhana wa tada knows best, right? Don't waste your time. Continue with goodness, continue with goodness, that's what's important. Right? Continue doing goodness, ask for forgiveness constantly as a prophet son alone, it was some of them did fulfill the Sunnah and tried to implement the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as much as possible, and you will see that's best for us. That's what's best. When the End of Times come, we will be ready.
I mean, no one can be fully ready, but we would have done our best in order to achieve it. Right? And so Allah subhana wa tada here, he highlights the sore, which is the trumpet that will be blown into
in the following verses verses 74 to 83. Allah subhanho wa Taala.
He talks about even on him,
right, Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam. And he mentioned the story of how Abraham Allah has sent them was advising his father, who was his father.
Right? was the father of Ibrahim Allah His center was as out of a believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And no, they were from those that were mostly keen, right, they made idols. In fact, as of he was the filmmaker himself. So you know, when you think of your children, or you think of your own parents, or you think of a relative of yours, and you try to understand what they're going through, and somehow you think, why, why is this happening? Why is this happening? This is my child. Why aren't they worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala knew that the profits of the past they themselves went through difficulties of their own.
Ibrahim Allah His center was trying to convince his own father, what are you doing? This is not right, you're making these idols. These idols are simply blocks of stone that he Ibrahima, and he has sent them when he was young, he would jump on and play on and sit on and you know, he would just enjoy himself on those blocks of stone. Right, and his father would then take them inside. And he would carve them and make them into an idol of that the people who ever you know, purchased it wanted it to be in the type of idle of their of their liking. He would carve it for them.
And then we have profits, like new holiday has set up when he was calling out to his son in the flood. And he was telling his son come on board and his son was saying, I'm just going to go over there. I'm going to reach the higher grounds, right? Don't worry about me, I'll swim to where it's higher grounds and I'll be protected. What happened to him? He was destroyed.
Right? So there were prophets of the past, who went through difficult moments as well. There were prophets and messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah, who, with their own family members, they struggled with their own spouse they struggled which to profits struggled with their spouse
who loot Allison up and no, Allah has set up right. The two of them their wives did not believe their wife didn't believe their spouse didn't believe.
Now we're not the sisters don't think Oh, you know what this is? Why is he saying that way?
is bad? No, the wife isn't bad. That's an example that our last panelist, Allah gave us that even the most beloved person to use sometimes will turn away from us.
Right? And so, if it happens, it happens. You work hard, you love the person you maintain the relationship with them, but it's not in our hands in Nicoletta demon. When our kingdom why demon Yeshua, it is not you that guides who you will rather it is a loss of Hamlet Allah who guides those that he wills and we'll see at the end of this surah how Abbas accountable water and it talks about that. So here in verses 74 to 83, Allah subhana wa tada talks about even our humanity, his center, and how he's trying to give Vince's father that these idols that you're making and worshiping, you should not be doing this worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah alone.
Then in the next few verses, Allah subhana wa tada points out, Ibrahim, Allah has sent him with regards to the sun and the moon and the star, right. So Ibrahim, Allah has set out to save time. He sees this star at night. And he says, Oh, this is my Lord. Right? This is my Lord. But then when the star disappears, he says, No, this can't be bothered.
Then he sees the moon. Oh, the moon. It's big. It's great, right? This is my Lord, right? And then the moon goes away, it disappears. This can't be my Lord. Then Ibrahim, Allah has sent him he sees the sun. And he says all of our A B have a problem, right? This is big. This is a sign this is that this is the Lord. And then the sun goes away. Oh no, this can't be my Lord. This can't be my Lord. Right? So Allah subhana wa Tada, center, Ibrahim, Allah has sent out a beautiful example of how, imagine if you worship the sun or the moon or the stars. And let's just say you were a star worshiper. At night, you would worship the stars during the day. What would you worship? You can't
see the stars during the day. You look at the sky, you say, Oh, you know what, I have to wait another six hours for my thought to come back. All right. Imagine that. You have a Muslim? How do I attack it at any time, day or night, no matter where you are on the face of the earth, or under the earth in the water? Right? Let's just say not here. In the water or you're in the sky traveling in an airplane or you're parasailing or you're doing something of that sort of loss of handling static and here you wherever you are at any point in time.
is knowledge is everywhere, as we mentioned, right? On the first day, that belief that Allah Subhana Allah knows everything that's happening everywhere at all times. His knowledge accomplices, every single thing he knows it.
And so it must handle it. It highlights that here in the story of Ibrahim it has sent out then in the last few verses there verses number 8283. Ibrahim out of his system, he debates with his people.
And he talks to his people and tells them about [???]can warns them about
rendering partners with a loss of Hannibal with that in vs 84 to 90 a loss of data points out profits and he names a number of prophets. If you read through it right now in sha Allah to Allah you'll see Allah Subhana Allah mentions is half the ARPU nor he goes on to mention Deadwood Sulaiman a huge use of Moosa heroin and almost kind of metallic goes on and mentions profits right. There's an important thing to point out here Ibrahim and know how to his son and they share something in common. Ibrahim it has sent him he shares the fact that after him every other profit to come was from his lineage. Right? Whereas no holiday has sent him what he shares with Ibrahim is that every
descendant that came after him was from his family or his people right? Because no hana has sent them was sent the flood and the flood destroyed all the people except those that follow know how to his setup right?
must come with Allah shows us how the descendants of nor all linked back to new data center, and the descendants of Ibrahim Allah has sent them in terms of the profits, they all link back to Ibrahim it has center. And what's beautiful is that they're all our family members. They're all our family members, because we all go back to them or we all link back to Adam and how and they can mess it up. Right? And so Allah subhana wa tada shows us that we are from families or we are family members, in some way, shape or form of those that word divine, not divine. Sorry, I shouldn't say divine, those that were sent us messengers and prophets of a boss or whatever and those who were outstanding
individuales on the face of this earth, and even if you're not direct lineage of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam like we know some people say, you know, I'm gonna say it, or I'm from, you know Allah for saying and links back to the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in some way, shape or form. You link back to Adam, Adam and Sam anyways, right? We all think back to Adam, we're all the same. We're all human beings. We shouldn't treat one differently than we treat the other. Don't ever think that you're sitting on a pedestal? You're better than the other people? No, you're not. We're all the same. Right? So most of Hannibal, what Allah He highlights
that here. In these verses, he talks about the different profits, he talks about new holiday, his center and the flood, and Ibrahim Manny has sent him an hour every single prophet that came after him was from the descendants of Ibrahim alayhis Sena. In verses 95, to 99. And Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on,
to show us and point out how we should recognize the signs of a loss of handle, what's our ad, verse number? 95? To 99, as I said, Allah Subhana Allah says, in law have an equal have been one hour, your hurry, join me in my ear, do you want mukuni jewel, my Gt meenal Hi, the Eco mama
on indeed of what is the cleaver of grain and date seeds, he brings the living out of the dead and brings the dead out of the living. That is a lot. So how are you deluded? He is, as he mentioned, he goes on furniture, when is
the cleaver of Daybreak and has made the night for rest and the sun and moon for calculation. So it was handled with Allah. He mentioned a number of His signs here again, right? He mentions how the seed, as we spoke about earlier, we won't go over it again. So he mentioned the seed, and he mentioned the dead and the living.
And then Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the daybreak, right how he is the one who brings day and he brings night, we don't do it, we're not the ones that control it. Imagine if you could, you know, imagine if looking out the window was the iPad of your life, and you put your finger on it, and it pauses, and you just go and you throw it back to 7am. And then you put your finger on and pause it. And then you go when you throw your finger across the other side. And then you stop it again, at like midnight or two o'clock in the morning. And you can just change the sun and the moon and just throw it around. We can't do that. But somehow when you think of it, who has the ability to
Like we do it on our iPads. And we never thought that we would be able to do stuff like that, ever. Right? When we were 20 years ago, 30 years ago. I remember when I went to elementary school, you know, in the early 80s, we had the first generation Macintosh computers, the apples of that day. We used to call them Macintosh, right today we call it apple.
So some kind of law we used to have those and the screen was green. I remember the computers like specifically. And they had those massive diskettes they didn't use didn't use to call them discs. They were diskettes right and you put them in there and they were so big and you hear dinner.
Right? Remember that sound? We heard it so much. We remember it 25 years later. And so how to love those, those computers we never thought that 20 years down the line we'd be using tablets and you know flat screen devices and phones that we just put in we walk into our car and now even some how do I The other day I rented a Ford Fusion, you know you just keep the key in your pocket you go and touch the door handle it recognizes that you are the person with the key in your pocket. It's not even a key it's just a remote. And it's it's touch sensitive. It automatically unlocks the doors and then you pull the handle open you sit inside, right and you just push the button and it turns the
car on you don't have to put a key in it knows that the key is in your pocket because of the sensors right? And then some kind of a lot has you know heated steering wheel wherever you put your hands on it warms up anywhere you touch it it starts to warm up. So common law right. The seat itself has heated seats as well as air conditioned seat. Anyone here works for Ford. You can get this this cars beautiful marshawn Lloyd Wright has air conditioned seat. So I was like okay, this is the first time in my life. I saw air conditioned seats right. Usually you have a heated seat, turn the heater on the heat seat and the seat heats up. But all of a sudden there's a button that instead of red
lights, it's blue lights equals your seat and you pushing you
and the fans turn on and it starts to cool underneath yourself.
The way the material is made, there's vents coming through, and you can feel it underneath your raw shell. It's cool.
And so Canada that is what Allah has given us the ability to do with our brain and education and the knowledge that he's given us, right, the wisdom that Todd has given us, but we still don't have the capability to throw around the sun and the moon and the stars, right?
None of us could do that. And we never thought that we could throw things around like now I'm scrolling through the corner with my finger. I never thought I would be able to do that. Back in the day when we used to play the Oregon Trail, right on those computers. Right, this little green thing, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick walking by. But now Subhanallah we have like live images in front of us. Retina display, exactly how your eyes see it, right? Which is not true. It's fake. It's not true. There's no way anyone can replicate Retina display. I don't care how much they try. There's no way they can do it. Because I can see 3d display with my eyes without using anything and
that's far above and beyond the retina display that they claim to be useful. And so Allah Subhana Allah He points out here his blessings and how he wants us to recognize how great he is in the creation.
And then in verse number 102, Allah subhana wa tada goes on. After mentioning his signs he tells us he is our Lord in verse number one of a two month span which it says the new como
Han Evo Konishi
Nice Konishi. Lucky. So I'm also paired with Allah says the equal number one a book.
That is Allah subhanho wa Taala your Lord, that's your Lord. After mentioning all the signs and the greatness of Allah subhana wa Tada. He says, that's your Lord, worship Him. Right? And you see how beautiful it is that Allah subhana wa tada ties it all in one after the other. And then he mentioned he's your Lord, worship Him. Right? In verse number 108, Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on.
In a beautiful, beautiful verse, what it does so bernadina
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Don't go and disgrace or make fun have
one and two Super livina into ruin and in doing it, those that are worshipped other than Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So here is the kind of Allah is telling us Don't make fun of the religion of other people don't make fun of what they worship, don't disgrace them in their worship and how they worship and what they worship. Don't make fun of them. Why? Why does he say this?
that they would in return, make fun of Allah subhanho wa Taala without having knowledge without knowing what they're doing. So don't go and insult the Lord's or false Lords or deities that other people have that they worship thinking? Uh huh. You don't know what you're talking about worship a loss of hands. What's wrong with you? You're crazy. Worship the wall, you're going to stand at the wall and you do a bunch of funny things. What are you doing right? This is just a stone Are you crazy? A cow. You can milk it and get milk out of it and then you can slaughter it and eat it and the meat tastes good. You barbecue it? Mashallah. Huh? You know, you're tasting it right now. You've
been fasting for so long? What's wrong with you? Why do you do no, we don't do that. Right? We don't do that. Why? Because to those people that worship those items, that is divine, that is important that is special to them. If you make fun of that, they won't listen to you, when you call them towards the last panel to hang up and on top of it, they will in return make fun of a lot. Why? Because they don't have knowledge. They don't have knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they're going to make fun of a lot. So to avoid them making fun of a monster candlelight and don't make fun of their gods or their we should say false gods that they worshipped. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala
in verse number 125,
Allah guides whom He wills, right, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah guides, whom He wills, and he states that here and he also mentions how he misguides those that he wills as well. Now people think well wait a second, if a muscle kind of metallic guides who he wills and he misguides those that he you know, wants to misguide and please forgive me, I'm not picking and choosing sides, and I'm facing more than I feel bad for you honestly, because the microphone is this way. So I keep working on this side. And I shouldn't be giving
attention to the signage Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala. He mentions,
how he guides those that he wills and he misguides those that he wills. Now people think well wait a second. So if I'm guided and guided, and those that are misguided, they say, Well a lot chose for me to be misguided. So what's your point of I chose for me to be misguided. It's mentioned in the corner that I bought chose for me to be misguided. He misguides the people he wants to misguide. So he misguided me. So why are you telling me to come and worship Allah? Why are you telling me to come closer to a month? Does that make sense to you? How do you respond to someone who says that?
Does anyone know?
You have free will, right? But what if they say, well, it says, a lot guides who he wills he misguides will evos read the end of the verse, read the end of verse number 125. What does it say? What's the kind of way to add assets? Okay, then you can add
images that are that lead
me on thus does a love place this situation upon those who do not believe.
Try to understand it. A lot places those who do not believe they chose not to believe those who choose not to believe, then allow misguide them. You want to be misguided here. We'll make it easy for you to be misguided. So Allah subhanho wa Taala gives you the choice. And anyone who's in debate with someone who's saying that and claiming it or stating you know what the Quran says of our guides who he wills in Yeah, you've been guided that's why you pray electrodes for me to be misguided. So how can you say I'm gonna go to help unload chose this for me, he wants me to do this. There has to be good people and bad people and a lot of chose for me to be from amongst those bad people that are
going to teach you good people what to stay away from. So I do all the bad things so you know what not to do, right? And so you tell this person, I'll give you the ability to choose. Right now you can choose to walk away from all these bad things right now.
If you choose to do it, Allah will actually take you out of it. Choose to come out of it. Do it right now I challenge you to do it.
Stay away from all evil, enter into Allah subhana wa Tada. You have the choice to do it. And they can right on the spot. They can literally walk away from all the evil that they do.
And so it must have went out of here in this verse. He says he guides who he wills and he misguides who he wills, but he misguides those who he wills from amongst those who choose to disbelieve in him get it. So those who chose to go away from among those are the ones that he will you know what you chose that that's for you Okay, you will be misguided. And that is what I was palitana says here, so please try and try and analyze this verse and shot a lot of data when you go home when you sit with your friends and family members talk about how Allah subhana wa Tada. He does not misguide people simply for the sake of misguiding them. Allah wants everyone to be in goodness, but he gives you the
choice. And we know as we quote the verse, you know, all the time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent as a mercy to all of mankind, sent to spread goodness to every single person. But it's the person who decides or not right? In verse number 130, was a panel what to highlight goes on.
And he says, how Allah subhanho wa Taala sent messengers to the humans as well as to the jinns. And here I just wanted to clarify, if you read it, you will probably understand from it that there were messengers sent to the humans who were human, and there were messengers sent to the jinns, who could possibly have been jinn. But that is not the case. And we know this through a number of Hadeeth we don't have time to go through them right now. But Allah Subhana Allah to Allah sent to the, to the mankind to human beings as well as to the jinn,
prophets and messengers from amongst the human beings, right? So they're no messengers that were jinn and so the jinn they follow the deen or they choose not to follow the team. And this is common, we'll see it through sort of virgin at the end of at the end, the last day of Ramadan and Shalom Tana, how Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the jinn and dedicates an entire surah to begin and we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to guide each and every one of us towards goodness, both the human beings as well as the jinn. Then in verse number 136, Allah subhana wa tada talks about different types of ships. And he goes on to discuss this in a number of verses up until verse number one
42 143 he goes on and talks about different types of shift that were done by the machete clean, right. And here, this is where we get back into the title of the Surah Surah took
the cattle. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about ship, and how the machine would take animals from the cattle, and they would offer it to their false gods, right, they would offer them in sacrifices, they would do a number of other things as well. They would say, for example, the animal that was pregnant, if it was a female, let's say a camel and it was pregnant, if it was a male, then this would be you know, offerings for their, for their, their, their gods that they worshipped. You know, there were a number of different things that they sent. And they forbid certain animals, like they said, this was an offering for the gods, even though it was food that they could have eaten and
consumed at times where they might have needed food, they would say, No, no, no, we can't eat this, because this animal is given as, you know, a gift towards the gods. So they would prefer to starve than to actually consume the foods that Allah subhana wa, tada has made permissible and had add upon the human beings, right. So they would have false offerings, that they would give her offerings that they would give to their false gods, another thing that they would do, and this all falls under the category of ship, so if you're wondering how this is shipped, that's where, you know, again, the importance that I always talk about the importance of learning not only that either in the law,
right? Or I shouldn't say only nine out of luck, as in that is, there's no deity worthy of worship except Allah. So there could be other false deities that people worship and we know that, that there's no true God except the loss of Hannah Montana, it's worthy of being worshipped, right. So the importance of learning ship is, is very, very much needed at our time. Because many of us do things, say things, consume things, or maybe interact with people in certain ways, not knowing that this is shipped and the reason why I say interact, and you think how is interacting with someone ship? Yes, if you're showing off to someone, and you're doing that simply so that they can be
impressed by you, just simply by speaking to them interacting with them, but you're showing off that is a type of shift as well, because you're doing something seeking the attention of someone else and the pleasure of someone else other than the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada. So even in our interaction with people it can be considered shift. And that's why it's important for us to learn this important Dean not only to learn about a muscle camera talent, but what takes us away from the pleasure of Allah subhana wa tada they would also engage in killing their children. We have a few minutes left, right, five minutes good inshallah. So they will engage in killing their children.
This is something that was hot um, that Allah subhanho wa Taala had declared as hot arm as well, so they would kill their children and offer sometimes their children if it was not a boy that was born they would take the life of the boy thinking that you know what they might get a boy the second time around in verse number 141, a muscle panel with an SS 1234 in your head masuri fy 18. So we skipped a verse number 141, Allah subhana wa tada says how he hates
wastage, and extravagance. So soft can be a various different types. You can have a soft, meaning you put too much food in your plate, and that becomes waste, meaning you're not going to eat all of that food 100% of what you put in your plate, you're only going to eat 70% of it. Well, why did you put that 30% in your plate, you're going to throw it in the garbage that isn't off that's going into the garbage. Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't like that. Also, a lot doesn't like extravagance as in, you continue to be extravagant and boast about things in your life or you do extravagance in the deen that you go the distance and do things above and beyond what was shown to us by the prophet
sallallahu wasallam with regards to our religion, so any type of extravagance that goes beyond the limitations of the Shetty app, or wastages, meaning it's the opposite of extravagance, meaning extravagance in the lesser form, that you end up wasting and throwing things in the garbage. This is no good and disliked by a loss of handle went to hand in verse number 142.
Allah mentions the cattle and how some cattle is made to eat and some of it is made to work. There's different types of animals and some of the animals like the bigger animals you would use for working in the fields and transporting things. And the smaller animals and the loss of Hannah Montana made them halaal for you to consume and use in the ways that he has made them
All right, not only in eating them, but in consuming them. So are we allowed to consume certain things? Are we allowed to use them? Are we allowed to use the skin of certain animals? Right? Are we allowed to use the particles the teeth and so on the claws of certain animals. These are all things that chum after Ramadan will go through in detail and try to educate ourselves with regards but Allah subhanho wa Taala focuses on mentioning them here in verse number 145
I would like nothing Zirin I wanted to just point out here that Allah subhana wa tada mentions Kinsey is the word what is that an English pig. And when we were young, a lot of our uncles would tell us don't say the word pig because if you do your tongue becomes dirty for 40 days and then your saw that is not accepted your door has not accepted and then I was talking to someone yesterday or the day before about something very similar. They said you know, I heard if you drink alcohol, then your your Doohan, your Salah is not accepted for 40 days. I said, This is ridiculous. Don't you know as long as you're sober, go and pray ask Allah subhana wa tada for forgiveness and don't go back to
it. You know, this is something that our culture has taught us and traditions have taught us, but it's not true. It's ridiculous. When you think of it your tongue is dirty for 40 days if you say the word pig, pig is not even an Arabic word, right? In z it is the Arabic word and it's in the Quran. What are you going to do when you're reading the Quran? skip over it because you think your tongue is going to be dirty for 40 days? Come on, think and think right? And so Allah subhana wa tada puts the word there in the Quran for us, for us to think and lastly, we finish off with verse number 160. In short, a lot of data, a good deed or loss of data is equal to 10 rewards. So you do one good deed
he gives you 10 rewards you do one sin you commit one sin Allah subhana wa Taala doesn't write it down as 10 sins, he writes it down as one sin and that shows us how mercy for Allah subhana wa tada is, so ask Allah subhana wa tada for forgiveness. Go and do a good deed give someone else was about to break their fast your date so that you get the reward and they get the reward, and you get 10 rewards for that instead of just doing instead of getting one reward. I mean out of that. I mean, some of them have sentimental about a kind of enemy in them. How many of us will suck the US Army
