Explanation of Surah At-Tawbah verse 94, Surah Yunus, until verse 49 of Surah Hud
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala ashrafi via even more saline. Maybe you know habibollah Muhammad and Ali Baba Salah to attempt to slim about my brothers and sisters in Islam a son Mr. Ajay Kumar coming to LA he Wolbachia.
Today we'll continue in sha Allah Today's a little bit interesting because we left off
you know more than halfway through sort of tober and then we will go into sort of newness, complete the entire sutra and then go into Surah Hood and do 49 verses of Sudoku and as well, so we're exactly on par we actually are exactly where the Imams will be reciting for tonight in sha Allah to Allah. So what we're covering today in our top seat is what they will be reciting tonight. Tonight, I want to start, we left off in verse number 94. But we're going to move on in sha Allah to the last half subhana wa tada in these verses. As we left off yesterday, he talks about the hypocrites and he talks about the characteristics of the hypocrites, right you can read through those but one point
that I wanted to,
I wanted to mention is how Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the characteristics of the hypocrites, but it's important for us not to analyze, you know, people that we know maybe relative friends,
just individuals in general and say oh, this person is a hypocrite that person is a hypocrite based on these characteristics that we see what we shouldn't be using these verses for the characteristics that Allah subhana wa tada mentions for the hypocrites, is to look at our own selves and ask ourselves, do I have an essence of this within me? If I do, then I need to try and fix that. Right now. Don't think that one quality that someone might have because when you read through the characteristics of the hypocrites, you might think Pamela I have this right. Okay, you might have one one thing or you might have part of one part of that might exist in you. Or you might feel that
way you might be inclined towards that in some way, shape or form. Just try and work on that on your you know, for your own self. Try not to hold on to that as though you think Oh, you know what, maybe I am a Hippocrates maybe I've been doing this, if you feel that there's you know, that is a part of you, then try and work with yourself in sha Allah to Allah to change that aspect of your own self. But don't in any way, shape or form, use those characteristics to try and point your finger at others and say, Oh, this person or that person, so and so he or she, because that is you know, we're not in any place or any position to do that. We leave that with Allah subhanho wa Taala.
He's the one that decides our fate at the end of our life and our outcome in the hereafter and it is not us to decide and to judge others. So we continue tonight in sha Allah to Allah with verse number 100 as Allah subhanho wa Taala had mentioned here,
pleasure to the, to the mahadji, Dean and the unsought as a loss of Hannibal Lecter. Anna highlights them in this verse. And he talks about the mahadji Dean and we know very well that the Mahajan as well as the inside was sacrificed a lot. Now some people think that will have been sacrificed more than the answer. But Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah knows best, each one sacrificed for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala for the sake of making the Muslim in comfortable and you know, feeling welcomed within the city of Medina. And the unsoldered Subhana Allah you know, they went out of their way in that sense. The Maha Jeannine came with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and
left their homes, they left their property, they left their family members, they left a lot behind in Mecca, and completely completely, you know, disassociated themselves or they were in some way shape or form disassociated from their belongings in Makkah and their family members and relatives in Makkah. So they sacrificed a lot for the sake of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and and for standing by the side of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Please excuse me today if you
hear me sniffling a lot.
I had a
procedure done today where they sent a camera in my nose and so my nose is a little bit
irritated because of that.
We move on to verse number 103103 in 104, Allah subhanho wa Taala
he commands us to pay ours a cat. He commands us to pay our Zakat and states that it purifies our wealth COVID min emadi him sada to Paul he wrote to us was a key him being was one near la him in
a second level. What more
Send me your own Isley team. So Allah subhanho wa Taala here, you know he, he highlights the importance of paying zakat. And we discussed this account very briefly last night when we ended off our halaqa. And we talked about the eight different categories of people or categories. Yeah, categories of people who are deserving as a cat, who we can use, there's a cat money on who knows these eight categories, anyone remember them very quickly? I'm sure we don't remember them off the top of our head. So I'll go through them again, the poor, the needy.
So what is the difference between the poor and the needy?
There's a very slight difference. I think a child love to save time, we won't go through it. But one who's capable of going and asking for help and assistance and one who isn't. So a person might be handicapped or might not be able to physically go and take themselves out to come to let's say the mustard and ask for some sort of assistance. And that is one of the categories and then the person who is capable of going and asking yet doesn't have wealth so they can come to the masjid and ask go and meet the masjid committee and say, You know what, I need some sort of assistance to pay rent. They're physically capable of doing so yet they're not financially capable of paying or maintaining
themselves. Then there's those that are employed for collecting the cash they can also receive their salaries from those account money those inclined towards Islam, the record so freeing a slave, those that are indebted that owe money to someone else to pay off their debt and their loan or their debt in some way, shape or form.
In the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala now when we say the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala What do you understand from that?
furthering the deen Okay, many people understand you know, Jihad you know, think okay, we use it for jihad. But if there's no jihad, then what do you use this wealth for? Right? What do you use it for? There's obviously some way you can use it right? So for example, jihad is not the only when we say the word jihad, it doesn't only refer to fighting, right the physical aspect of going out and fighting Jihad enough's is even more important. Jihad enough to prepare yourself like the companion sort of the lover I know, that went in front with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they had to prepare themselves for it. Yesterday, we spoke about the Battle of button, right? Those
companions or the lover and whom the Sahaba they were fighting against their own relatives, some of them their fathers, some of them their uncles, some of them their brothers, their cousins, right, their own relatives, and that was not easy to do. So at our you know, in our situation right now, Jihad enough's sacrificing from the things that you love for the sake of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and giving up the pleasures that you like, giving someone some giving someone else, something that you love, that you wish for, that you desire that you want, but you know that they can use it more than you can, right. So there's many different types in different categories. inshallah, one
day we'll set some time aside to discuss that.
But also in the in the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
For example, printing the Quran, right? printing the Quran, that's also the cause of Allah, you're helping to produce more copies of the Quran if there's a need for it. In terms of providing social assistance and various different sorts, there's many different things that we can do that so how do we really don't think of right that we can use this world for? And then it needs to be the traveler so Allah subhana wa tada here. He mentions in verse number 103, and one known for how it's important for us to pay our Zakat and it's an obligation upon us we must do so.
In 108, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about a specific mustard in fact to mustards but I want to focus on one
he mentions la masjidul boosey, Salah, Taka min, a woody Yeoman. What mustard is that mustard, a taqwa? Or the mustard that was built and raised upon taqwa. Which mustard is Allah subhanho wa Taala referring to here.
Mustard, mustard go back. That's right must go back. Where is mustard? Koba? Who knows?
Right, just outside in fact, now it's considered part of the city of Medina. But at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It was, you know, like the suburbs, right? It was the suburbs of Medina, which is literally just about a 10 minute walk, or, you know, 15 minute walk in front of most of the number we just continue walking straight and you'll reach mustard Koba, right. So Allah
He mentioned mustard kooba here in the Quran
and he says that this was the mustard that was built upon taqwa. It was the first mustard that was built and established when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left to Makkah, and it is known as the first must shoot. So, it must be that how long right that is in Makkah, the caravan itself. That mean is the holy place of worship and pilgrimage and so on that we go to after that outside of that Allah Subhana Allah to enter the very first Masjid he allowed to be built was mustard Koba and there's many rewards for praying and must go back from amongst the rewards is
a person who performs you know woo and praise to another guy and mustard Koba. It's as though they've performed Ramadan Alright, so Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted must go about a different status in terms of reward for those that frequent it and go to it and pray in Masjid Koba. In verse number 111.
Allah subhanho wa Taala here he mentions how he purchased our souls. In nama hasta, la mina Mina, for
was a panel with Allah says that he purchased our souls for what what was the price that he purchased our souls for?
Our souls as well as our wealth belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala for a price that Allah subhana wa to Hana pays. Did you know that? Right? Allah subhanho wa Taala has paid the price of genda for us, so long as we submit and fulfill the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us, our souls, our wealth, our life belongs to Allah. This body is an Amana from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Whatever we have was given to us from Allah, so our wealth not only in terms of money, but our children, right? I don't know who will buy Luna Xena to hire the dounia Wolbachia to solve how to hire owner in the hobby. And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions Zun iannelli, nursey, homebush, chahatein and Nisa, even
Benny in our
30 minute, you will feel Bertie when he was a woman he will and our army will have very committed will hire to do
just move over?
Sure, I don't think so. I think it's fine.
So I'm also hand over to Allah.
He mentioned types of wealth that we would have and types of,
you know, provisions in our life that we enjoy, that we enjoy from the duties and the bounties of this world. Right? So Allah Subhana, Allah has granted us that and he, he owns that and he owns ourselves, this body is an Amana and that's why Allah subhana wa Taala tells us in the Quran, to take care of this body, don't smoke, don't drink, don't consume things that are harmful when you look at the benefits, and you weigh them against the cons of consuming, you know, certain foods like for example, to eat pig. I know somehow there was a brother who I met once who was a non Muslim and accepted Islam.
And he was telling me his sister is a doctor, and their whole family doesn't even you know, even though the rest of his family is non Muslim, they don't consume any, you know, pork products whatsoever, because the meat from it is actually very dirty. And in fact, when you look at it, there's a lot of people that end up getting stomach worms and different types of, you know, illnesses from consuming pig. And so Allah subhana wa to Allah gave us the ability to consume what is best for us what's best for our bodies, what's best to take care of ourselves and our health. And so kinda when you look at all the things that we've been allowed to eat, as opposed to what we've
not been allowed to eat, they're from the best of products, right? The most logic, the most comfortable to eat and Subhanallah it's, it's what's best for us and it takes care of our body that has been gifted to us, by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he mentioned here
that the price of Allah subhana wa Taala pays for that is Jenna that he's given us gentlemen, you will get gentlemen, if you understand what Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us that he owns our souls, and he owns our lives and our wealth and everything that we possess, and the price that he will pay is Jenna. And honestly, when we think of it, we would sell our own cells if we would be able to purchase gender, right? If you could sell yourself for the reward of getting gender, we probably would do that our own cells, right. So So
Pamela Pamela Danna shows us a beautiful analogy there. In verse number 113.
Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to mention the prohibition of asking forgiveness for the machine. And this is a point that we need to touch upon in sha Allah to add the prohibition of asking for forgiveness for the motion again. Can we make do are out for a non Muslim? Yes or no?
Okay for forgiveness, right so for guidance, yes for forgiveness? No, that's a very good right. So we are not allowed to ask for forgiveness from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for them. Why? Well, simply because the choices with them, and they have the ability to make that choice either to submit to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala or not to make dua for their guidance is permissible, and we should do that. We should be asking Allah subhanho wa Taala. To guide those who are misguided and bring back our family members bring back our relatives bring back those people who are good and righteous towards Allah subhanho wa Taala and to submit to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Right, so it's permissible to make dua for their guidance for them to be guided to Islam, but it is not permissible to make dua for their forgiveness. After someone has passed away. The same thing applies. You're not allowed to ask for forgiveness from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for that person who is a machinic, who died upon Cofer who lived their life, openly stating that they are a mushnik whether they died upon Islam and amen or not. And you know, it's unknown. That's for Allah subhanho wa Taala. To decide, because we all know that someone might accept even at the last moments of their life, they might utter the Shahada and fully and truly, you know, given to the will of Allah
subhanho wa Taala, then that is completely fine. But if it's not known to anyone, then that remains with a loss of Hannibal or Tana, okay, so it must handle it Allah knows best with regards to this.
And we see the example of this being done in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he made do a half for his uncle, which uncle.
That's right, his uncle, who took care of the prophets on a lot more either us Allah, who not only took care of him in terms of, you know, giving him a place to live, but financially supported the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was not from amongst the meaning, but he financially supported the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam through his lineage, he protected the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right because he had that connection, that status, that no one would be able to go against his word. And so he protected the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he protected his family, he even told who to follow the prophets of Allah and he had a son.
And he brought the other hand, who was it was his relationship to
his own son, his own son, and so that is dear to the prophets of Allah usnm, right? Imagine you as a father, you tell your child worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. But you don't do that. And you tell your child to follow his cousin who's the prophets on a lot more and he will send them right Just think of it put yourself in that in those shoes, that you are telling someone to follow the Prophet and Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Yet you yourself, don't do that. And that person you're telling is your own child. That's, like strange to think of. But yet those were the challenges of the profits of a lot more than a US center. And when his uncle passed away he made Do I have to
Allah Subhana Allah and Allah subhanaw taala told them, You can't make dua don't make dua for someone who passes away and you know, leaves upon Kufa.
They had our last panel with Allah out of mercy for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he would lighten the punishment upon
upon the uncle of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam about it. Then we move on to Surah Yunus sha Allah to Allah and sorta Yunus Allah subhanho wa Taala here mentions
in verse number two,
to tune kita bill hockey team. And then the last panel Italia goes on for the next few verses. And he mentions how
he basically questions us or ask us to think, is it strange that Allah subhanho wa Taala sends to you a messenger who's amongst you, who's from you, meaning who's a human being, and this was a message not really directly or directed at us, but directed at the previous nations, right. The pseudo name is sort of unison
But we talked about pseudo knew about no Halle Hassan in this surah as well. So Allah subhanho wa Taala. Here he asks, or he's, he's telling the prophet to ask the machine. Do you think that it's strange that a messenger from amongst you is the Prophet of Allah? subhanho? wa Taala? Why is that so strange for you? Why is that hard for you to understand? And you have to remember the machine, they would ask for signs, they would ask for signs of the greatness of a muscle panels and send a messenger. Hello, there's a messenger right in front of you, that is the Messenger of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, but they wanted a divine messenger, they wanted someone who's like, you know,
different, not a human being an angel, send someone else don't send a messenger of the human beings. But that was the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala what's the wisdom and hikmah in following a human being rather than following a different, you know, sort of creation of a loss of kind of mortality? What would be the wisdom behind it? What can you think of?
Okay, he's relatable, right? So he's someone who is part of us, we eat, he eats, we sleep, he sleeps, we need sleep, he needs sleep as well. We need food to survive, he needs food to survive. If I was a panel, a data center different being someone that didn't need to sleep, someone that didn't need to eat someone that didn't need, you know, any mode of transportation was able to just, you know, snap their finger and fly to a different part of the world. Then we would say, Oh, you know what, there's no way we can be like that. There's no way we can pray five times a day. There's no way that we can fast during Ramadan. He is a super being. He wasn't one of us. But yet Allah
subhanho wa Taala sent one of us the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose ankles would swell in the middle of the night when he was standing in tahajjud. Right? his ankles would swell, he would go into sujood and he would spend a long time in solitude and somehow this is, you know, something I was thinking of the other day.
The debate between eight o'clock and 20 Raka how many people always debate this? Should we pray age? Shouldn't we pray 20 and some kind of law for those that pray? 20? Alhamdulillah? Right. You pray 20 That's good. For those that complain about the 20 dakara. Right. They pray about God and they say oh, you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam only bred eight. Yeah. Okay. In narrations. It is mentioned that he prayed eight, it's mentioned other numbers as well. But are you praying the eight that occur that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam prayed? His first like I was sort of thrown back on
the whole surah his second that was sort of alien. Right. The whole Sula, right? That was the 200 of the profits on a lawnmower and it is a truck I took up the whole night. So those that, you know, complain and argue back and forth. And this is why last night I posted about it because a lot of people have been asking me and I posted simply last night online and said, Listen, I'm gonna make this simple for all of us. The debate between eight and 20.
Really, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. Even if you pray two or four or you pray 20 or you pray to 26 or you pray 30, it doesn't matter. The point is that you're praying and you're devoting yourself in that ariba to Allah subhanho wa Taala that's what matters. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was seen praying eights mean praying 12 sometimes bring 16 different numbers, different times. He didn't pray a specific amount all the time. And that's what's needed to focus on. Yes, Ramadan is different than the rest of the year, no doubt. But during the move on I mean, we don't want to get into the the discussion because we want to focus on our deficit.
But here we're highlighting how the profits on a lot of us and them as a human being, and regardless of, of what is mentioned out there in terms of taraweeh, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would stand and sacrifice himself to the extent that he would feel it physically in his body, he would feel that dream and feel the strain. And then what's important like brother always and brother
mentioned, you know, he was a human being like us. So many of us think you know, as how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at his time, you know, he would stand up all night long during Ramadan, but then it was, you know, Islamic nation and, you know, the only the Muslims living in Medina, so maybe they would sleep all day, you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Sahaba of the Obama on whom they would get up and they would go still to the marketplace and do their business and trade and do whatever they needed to do. And the profits are lower and he was someone was awake, looking after the whole oma making sure that everyone was okay, and everything was going right. And,
you know, the justice was being applied to the places and people that it needed to be applied to. And that was the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So don't think that oh, you know, that was a different time different people know, it was a different time, but it was still the same
types of people as you and I, still human beings still had hair and grew beards and you know, they they sweat just like we sweat and they ate just like we eat, when we eat the dates that they ate, right? We still bring them over to this side of the world. So Allah subhanho wa Taala sent a prophet and messenger from amongst us, and that's what's we're what we're highlighting here and Allah subhanho wa Taala says it's not strange it's not strange that we do that right. In verses 18 to 19
the wish of the king are mentioned here worshiping what doesn't benefit them and Allah subhana wa tada highlight highlights that in these verses 18 to 19 or recite them in sha Allah tada
Why are boo doo
doo Nila Hema yo
Pharaoh boom waiuku Luna una
una de la. So the worship other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they say that these are our gods or idols that are going to intercede for us when we need to call upon the last panel. So Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions them here.
And he talks about them claiming and stating that these are our intercessors with Allah, and then say, Do you inform a lot of something he does not know in the heavens or on earth? Do you think of us, Japan and Thailand needs you to mention to him through these idols and these so called gods or false gods that you worship? Allah knows, and he doesn't need you to tell him what's happening on Earth, nor what's happening in the heavens. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala here highlights the fact that they worship things that can't even benefit themselves, you know, as as as their own being. So those idols are those animals, sometimes you look at the cow that that some people worship the cow,
can the cow feed itself, most of the cows that we have now are kept in pastures, right. So if you don't provide food for the animal, can it feed itself? No, it needs someone that will take it out and go out and find a place to eat. Now that's because we've made the world that way. But these cows that we keep now in captivity, we could say in captivity, right? So kinda we need to bring food to them, otherwise they have no food. And then we milk the cows and take the milk from them. So they still are, you know, being taken care of by human beings. They can't even take care of their, their own selves. And the loss of Hannah Montana highlights that in these verses, in verses 24 to 25.
Allah gives an analogy here or uses a parable, the parable of life, right. And we'll read it very quickly. In English. The example of this worldly life is but like rain, which we sent down from the sky, that the plants of the earth absorb those from which the men and livestock eat until when the earth has taken on its adornment, and its end is beautified. And its people suppose that they have kept capable capability over it. There comes to it our command by night or day so Allah subhanho wa Taala here is talking about how he gives the earth rain, and the ring brings produce and the produce grows, right we have what wheat and corn and beautiful fruits and vegetables that come out of the
ground. And then so panela we we enjoy it, but then with the will of Allah subhana wa Tada, it's gone. Then what? Then where do you turn? Where do you get your provisions from? It's Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna who provides that? And that's the story of our life, right? That we're given things and then things are taken away. And then when you turn to Allah subhana wa tada he gives you things again. And you know, I wanted to highlight winter when I was thinking of this, reading these verses I was thinking of winter, and how Allah Subhana Allah look outside now, right? You drive down Burnham, Thorpe. And you notice the farmlands, the farmers worked on the land, they plowed the
fields, and they planted the seeds. And now you're seeing the seeds growing right there. They're growing, they're sprouting out. And then we're going to get corn and we'll have potatoes and we'll have you know, weeds that's growing from it. And a lot of nice produce is can come from the ground. But where is that in the winter? Like the winter it's completely frozen over. All you can see is ice and nothing else. What do you do in those months? You ration right? But Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us the ability to do that the wisdom to figure that out. Imagine if we didn't know how to do that. Imagine if all we knew was to work the land and take the produce and so on and then all of a sudden
ice cave and we'd be like whoa,
What do we do? How do we fix this? How do we sort out this situation? How are we going to plant anything? Well, the ground is solid now, you know, where are you going to turn to? And so Allah subhanho wa Taala allowed us the ability to use from that produce when we need it and to save some of it so that in the winter months, we can go to the grocery store and purchase that and use it and eat it and consume it. And that is the willen plan of a loss of Hana. What's your highlight?
And then Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in verse number 25. One long window ina Daddy, Santa
WIA de Masha
you know, slam off most of the team and a lot invites to data send them Where's data send them that is the gift of a loss of handle data. Where is that data set? I'm not the country or the place on Earth, you're thinking of Brunei, right Brunei data center. No, even though Mashallah the Sultan over there is very wealthy and has you know, a lot of wealth and nice golden and silver cars and you know, palaces that kind of gives away to people, not data set number nine, Allah Subhana Allah Allah here is telling us that our reward is that Assam, Jenna, right, the place of peace and eternal abode where we will live forever, that is that is set up that is the true place of enjoyment to the true
place of of comfort and a loss of handling which tells us that after talking about those that are worshipping false gods and the example of this life and how Allah subhanho wa Taala brings the rain and and the heat and the sun and so on and so forth. And then he goes on to tell us that our everlasting gift is Jenna. In verses 37 to 40 Allah subhana wa tada here he highlights
how the Quran is true and cannot be reproduced and is a miracle from Allah subhana wa Tada. And this happened, even during the time of the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu, that when the verses were being revealed, and being recited to the machine, they themselves would would debate and say we can produce this as well, like we took yesterday in the verse right? That we can produce this as well. But Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us that this Quran is a miracle. And those verses go through discussing how the miracle of Allah subhanho wa Taala cannot be reproduced. No poet's can in any way, shape or form bring these verses back in in such a beautiful, orderly fashion. how Allah
subhanho wa Taala did with power with the usage of the Arabic language in ways that confuse even the reader, right? Like we mentioned yesterday, how Allah subhana wa attallah mentioned in the verse, And he says, What are soon at the end of the very second verse of sort of ba right or the first verse of sorts.
And how Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the usage of these words, to the reader to the average person, it seems as though it's mentioning that a lot is Betty mean and mushrikeen. What a pseudo he's far from the machete cane and His Messenger bot, Allah subhanho wa Taala used the Arabic language in a way to show power to the meaning, right, that only the person who understands will be able to tell you the meaning of this. So it's not something that is easily written by the average person, it is divine and comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And also to highlight that almost palitana shows us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his Hadith in his statements. Now when I say Hadith here, I'm actually referring to the statements, the words that came out of the mouth of the prophets on a long line, he will send them his words coincide with the Quran as well. So the statements of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam only compliment the Quran and they coincide with the meaning of the Quran. And that's that in itself goes to show us that not only is the Quran divine, but the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were were deliberately said and done and given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
from Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning he was made to say these things he was made to allow us to do to consume certain things or to go to certain places and to disallow us from you know, taking certain things like usury, you know, Riba and stuff like that interest, and so on and so forth. So it all, you know, mixes in together, and it's so perfect, there's no contradiction. There's no contradiction whatsoever in the Quran, and in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you
they coincide and complement each other. Then in verses 48 to 52
of surah, Yunus, Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on
to talk about those who deny a law's message, and wish for their punishment as a sign. But these people the most shocking, obviously, they would ask the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, as well as the previous nations. So the the nations of the past and the and the prophets that we discussed just a couple of days ago, and how their punishment came, they would say to the Prophet, if you claim that you're a prophet, and you claim that Allah has the power to do anything, then bring our punishment, let's see this punishment that you're talking about. But you know, to the person who sits and thinks that doesn't make any sense. Why would you wish for your punishment to come upon you
right now? Because when your punishment comes, it's too late. It's too late. You can't go back and do anything. It's too late. Your punishment has come. Why are you wishing for your punishment to come upon you right now? That is one of the most dumbest things that you can ask for. Bring the punishment, let's see this punishment that you claim. And the reason why they would do that is because they were challenging, not only the Prophet of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, but they would challenge Allah Himself. That you know what, this god you're calling towards, Come on, give us a break. He's gonna bring this he's gonna make this stone turn into a camel. Come on, give us a break.
Right? And so Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us in their example, that they were so ignorant to actually wish for their punishment to come, but that punishment meant your destruction.
That was their destruction, right? If your punishment comes, there's no chance for you to ask for forgiveness afterwards. It's over. Right? And so that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala. He shows us examples of how he mentioned on the Day of Judgment, those that will see the fire, they will wish to go back. Why will they wish to go back to come back to Earth in order to do one good deed? Why would they wish to come back because they didn't have the opportunity to do so. Because they wished for their punishment, the punishment came and then there was no opportunity to go back to Earth in order to change that situation for them in their life. So Allah subhana wa tada highlights that in these
verses in verses 62 to 64
versus 62 to 64 Allah subhanho wa Taala here oversite these verses in sha Allah
rubine umina Shea and Bonnie alloggi M. A in Olia,
Allah Xena, man, what can we add
to dounia wasini.
legibility and you can imagine
that you can one focus zone and hopefully, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Here in these verses. He tells us who his allies really are. Who are the allies of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now listen up because if you want to be close to Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to pay attention, right? So Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says Anna in earlier Allah unquestionably, for the allies of Allah, there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. So these are not people who simply just fear Allah subhanho wa Taala as many people say, taqwa means fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala they will not fear Allah subhanho wa Taala they will be content with what Allah subhanho wa Taala has given
them they're not upset with this Dean. They're not scared of doing anything that alasa panel Adana calls them towards those who believed and were fearing of a lot. Now he says those who were fearing of Allah fearing what
fearing the punishment should they go against what was mentioned in the first verse, should they go against what is liked and loved by Allah subhanho attack. So if you do what Allah subhana wa tada loves.
There is no need really to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala but there is a need to fear his punishment. Should you not do what he loves? Do you get it? Do you understand that? Does it make sense? Are you listening? Do you want me to speak in French?
Mashallah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, For them are good tidings. This is for you. Listen, for them are good tidings in the worldly life and in the Hereafter glad tidings from Allah subhanho wa Taala. No change is there in the words of
Allah, that is what is the great attainment. That is the goal that is success with a once upon a time. Who Who are the Allies did he specifically mentioned that Allah subhanho wa Taala specifically mentioned the allies to him are Did he say that specifically indirectly? No, he opens it up for them. I mean, for those who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala You are the friends of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right. When you worship Allah, when you submit to Allah subhana wa tada as well. When you fulfill the rights of Allah subhana wa attallah meaning all the commands that he's placed upon us and the things that we have to do in terms of our son, our cm, our second, our hygiene and so on and
so forth our belief, if you fulfill all of that you put your own self in that category of people who Allah subhanho wa Taala loves, very simple, and he says it so beautifully as well in the Quran, then Allah subhana wa tada in verses 65 to 70
he confirms all honor is for him. So Allah now goes into praising himself and showing how all honor is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala verses 71 to 74 talks about the story of new alayhis salam which we're not going to talk about because we did already earlier and we will see it in the next one as well. In verses 75 to 93 Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights the story of Musa Allah has sent them and fit around again. So you can go through it more detail is is laid out there from Allah subhana wa tada in versus not in verse 98, which is the last verse that will discuss belief at the true sorry.
I can't even believe that the time of punishment only worked on the people of Eunice Anna his sentiment This is the one verse from the from the life of Eunice Anna has sent me that we touch upon in terms of the actual full sutra that we just focused on. Now all of these verses obviously coincide with the life of Eunice it is and I'm in the previous prophets, because they were calling towards none other than the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But here Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in verse number 98 how Yunus Allah has sent him his people when he called towards them what was different from the people of Yunus and his sentiment that was not seen in the people of the
other nations? What was different?
Not without the Prophet but
Okay, so Yunus Allah has sent him he left so he wasn't there. Right. The Prophet had left and he wasn't there. But Yunus Allah has sent him his people. They entered Islam.
They entered Islam before the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala came to them. Right? They entered Islam before the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala came. So the nations that came prior to that, or after that as well, actually, I should say after that, because we don't really know of the nations before know Allah has sent out. So those that came after No, Holly has sent it. Sorry, Eunice.
This is that time of day we just
right. So the nations that came before and after Eunice Ani has sent them right, they had asked for their punishment, and the prophets warn them, if you're calling for your punishment, it's going to come. And we'll see that in the next rule about how new Allah has sent them. For example, he's in front of them building the ark right in front of their faces. He told them and warn them a punishment will come to you if you don't obey Allah subhanaw taala a punishment will come and he's building their safety unit, right, which is that that submarine booking thing, the ship that units and is sent and built, he's building it right in front of them telling them, hey, you're asking for
your punishment. I'm building a safe place during that time of punishment where we are going to be safe and protected from Allah. And even though he builds it right in front of their faces, they still want this punishment to come to them. Yeah, bring it on. Right? Bring it on. Let's see this punishment from your God. Right. And so so Pamela Yunus and his son and his nation, when he left, they thought right away something is wrong. They began to see the skies change color, and they stopped. They're like, Oh, the punishment of a loss coming and they submitted to a loss of Hannah Montana. And then at the end of the story of unison, we'll discuss at a later part in the Koran in
sha Allah Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us upon his return, he realized his people had submitted to the will of Allah subhana wa tada without even bringing up punishment. And he returned and he went on that he went on that that crazy journey, that crazy journey of life, and returned and his people were just there waiting for him. Right? So subpanel, Allah subhana wa Jalla had given us Allah has sent him a very beautiful and interesting story.
In the next tool, which is sort of Hoot
The 11th surah of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala here in verses one to four and we'll go through this very quickly because we're only covering the first 49 verses and I want to finish within the next five minutes in sha Allah. So Allah so panel entire that from verses one to four, he talks about the book The Quran, and mentions again as we see in many other sources of the Quran how Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights this book, and if
kita boon came at
fusina mill and mill Edwin Hakeem in clubby Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna highlights the Quran, but he also then goes on to mention the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then he goes on to discuss the messenger and how he calls to the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala through the book and how the book is easily understood. The Quran right, not referring to a different book, as we spoke about in Surah Baqarah at the very beginning, and if lamb me Valley Kalki tabula rasa bothy, most of you were not there because it was the very beginning. So we mentioned how the especially, you know, our times the non Muslims, some of them tried to twist the meaning of the, of
the beginning of sort of through Baccarat when they say that he can keep taboo, Larry, Buffy, they're not referring to the Quran because Allah Subhana which Allah would say, haven't keytab this book, The Quran, this book very early in it, there's no doubt so they try to confuse the Muslims by saying, then you can keytab will lie Buffy. vaniqa is used to refer to something far away, meaning the Bible, that's what they say they claim the Bible that book, there's no doubt in it. Right? So they try and confuse Muslims by thinking that when the reality is Allah Subhana Allah says that he can Kitab not referring to the Bible, he's referring to a low hanging fruit, the protected tablets,
where Allah subhanho wa Taala initially and originally wrote or had the core unwritten, right. And so the protected tablet is what protects the Koran. And here Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the Quran. In verse number six, Allah goes on, to mention how he himself is responsible for the provisions of every creation. And this is a beautiful verse of the Quran, Allah, He highlights here, how he is responsible for the provisions of every single creation on the face of this earth.
And so you know how we even mentioned the example of the cow, right, the cow that's living inside of the farm, and needs the farmer to come and bring in some hay some you know, hay to eat some grass to eat, Allah Subhana Allah is responsible, and he allows that to happen that to take place. So even if the animal is being looked to afterwards, sorry, if the animal is being looked after, by a human being or by some other means a different animal that's taken care of that, that is the plan of a loss of habitat. And so you'll notice in the animal kingdom, how some animals hunt, and other animals will eat the you know, the smaller ones and then the those that are smaller will eat the
smaller ones like the fish and so on and so forth. Allah subhana wa tada takes care of all the creation, he provides for them in the best way that is needed for them to be provided. And in verse number eight, Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on
to talk about Oman. And I wanted to not necessarily talk about this verse, but I wanted to talk about the word oma, because we'll see it in the Quran over and over. And the word oma itself can have various different meanings. For example, oma can mean a time period, right? A time period that's used, you know, so there's a different time period like in sort of use of a loss of animal which uses the word and it sort of means a time phrase, a time period. Another meaning for oma could be a leader, an Imam, someone who leads the Ummah, right. So Allah subhanho wa Taala uses that word as well. In that sense, Alma can also mean religion, right? The home of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam, the followers of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is a group of people, but it could also mean the deen the religion itself. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has various different meanings for the use
of various different meanings for the word oma that he uses in the Quran, in verse number nine to 11.
Our attitude changes with the circumstances. This is what a lesser kind of attack is teaching us that our attitudes change with the circumstances that we're in. And if you read through these verses, I'll just read the beginning in sha Allah to Allah and if we give men a test of mercy
from us, and then we withdraw it from him. Indeed, he is despairing and ungrateful. But then Allah Subhana Allah says, but if well he doesn't say but right? I know people like to make fun of speakers and scholars Mashallah and bass talking, they just cut and paste and say, you know, Allah didn't say but all right. So Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then he goes on to say, and if we read the English, you know, translation, but if we give him a taste of favor after hardship, meaning we give him some sort of ease, we make life easy for him and give him something beautiful, after he tastes, hardship and goes through a difficult period in his life or her life.
After hardship has touched Him, He will surely say bad times have left me indeed he he is exalted and boastful, right? So Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us the two different
circumstances or two different scenarios that we put ourselves in, right? When we're happy with what's going on, we say Alhamdulillah these are the blessings of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah upon us. When we're upset or something is difficult upon us. We're like, oh, what's going on? When is goodness going to come to me when is goodness going to come to me? But the point is, we need to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala at times of goodness and times of hardship, because we remember him at times of hardship, we tend to forget Allah subhanho wa Taala during times of goodness.
In the next few verses, we move on to verse 25. And literally right to the end of what we're taking today, which is verse number 49.
From 25 to 49, Allah subhana wa tada is talking about the story of new ohana his son and he's talking about the decisions and the discussions that no Hannah is Salaam had to make with his people. And, you know, the, the the context of what was taking place, how he was, you know, trying to convince them of the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala all of that takes place in these verses. Allah subhanho wa Taala also highlights in these verses the story of new Hannah his son, I'm being extremely important, right? Why is the story of Nora instead of important? Why is it mentioned in the previous surah? Why is it mentioned in this surah? Why is there a sword I mentioned at the end
of the of the Quran that specifically talks about the life of nor had a center who can tell us?
Why is the life of neuron a set of important Yes.
Okay, he was going against shirk, was it done before?
Exactly, that's exactly it. Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights the story of North LA and sent him so much. Because in our lessons for each and every one of us, all of us will deal with this in our life, not necessarily for ourselves, but the people around us. We will always go through difficult moments in dealing with people that are emotionally keen, or family members, relatives, close acquaintances who move away from Islam. And that was done for the very first time during the life of know how Allah has set up, shift, worshipping other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he was the first Prophet and Messenger sent to call away from the the shift that was taking place during his
time. So it's an important story for us to learn from and that's why I lost my turn to highlight his story over and over in the new how to his cinema. As we mentioned, he prepares this ship the arc that he's building right in front of the faces of the machine. Right? And, you know, they're asking for their punishment. They're asking, you know what, come on, leave us alone. How many people followed know Allah has sent him
100 less than 100? Around 80 right around 80 and so the followers of Allah has sent him were so few, so few in number, that Subhana Allah in front of everyone who is building this Ark and telling them listen, protect yourself, save yourself, but yet they still didn't believe and would not turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala Hannah, then know how to his anemones verses Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions how he loads the ship with creatures meaning the creation of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in, in sets. So Allah subhanho wa Taala shows us how he loads them in pairs we could say, so, you know male female, loads them in pairs so that they can be the
the future nation of the world after this flood.
And then Allah subhanho wa Taala also talks about the drowning of the son of mohalla his setup and in a beautiful verse in verse number 41.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
walk all over caribou Bismillah he Majidi
Hello moussaka in beenleigh photo morpheme. So Allah Subhana Allah commands nor Allah has sent him to tell his people enter those that followed him, enter upon the ark Bismillah imaginary how one more Sahaba that its way in the way, wherever it will flow and where it's going to be carried to, it will be done with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala
with his mercy with his forgiveness, and Allah subhanho wa Taala will protect them. And this is what we recite when when do we recite this?
To do that we should recite when we drive a car or when you get into a boat to go over water. You're, you know, driving over a bridge or something of that sort to know how to hit send them said this and we recite it. What example do we learn from this, we learned that even our car we cannot control even though the steering wheel is in our hands and the gas pedal and the brake are under our feet. We still don't control it. You remember a few years ago, Toyota had a recall on which car their prized possession, right, the Toyota Camry, right? What was wrong with the Toyota Camry
the brakes and they accelerator it would get stuck in the acceleration position. And so the throttle would go all the way down. And you wouldn't be able to stop the car. Even if you pushed on the brakes, it would just burn out the brakes because it's accelerating so hard, right?
Yet you're holding the steering wheel you have the brake underneath your one foot you have the accelerator under another foot you're holding on to the steering wheel you can't stop this car. Why? Because Allah subhana wa tada has full control over this car. Full Control, it's not in our heads. And you'll notice that one person is driving this, that same car and another person's driving the exact same car same model, same year came from the same place might even be the car that was produced right before right after that one. Yet this one has no problem and that one does. It's the will of a loss of cannibal. Right. And so the reason why we recite these two hands is to protect
ourselves and ask Allah subhana wa tada to be our protector over us in verses 45 to 47 these are the last two verses that we will take Allah subhana wa tada highlights what we were talking about yesterday, when we said that the that blood is thicker than water, meaning our relatives are closer to us than our friends but there's something that's thicker than blood and that is the shadow right the shadow that we have in our tests that we believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala that is stronger to us. Then the relatives that we have and Allah subhana wa tada here tells it to know how to hustle and that you you know, he calls upon the loss of Hamilton and says this is my son, and no hallae his
salon is told by Allah subhanho wa Taala that he is not your relative. He's not your relative. He's someone who disobeyed the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we'll suffice with that in sha Allah for now, before we finish a very quick announcement, and then I wanted to go over the homework that I discussed the other day. So we'll take two minutes for that in sha Allah. Sophia Begum, right in Bangladesh. She is in the ICU unit on life support and seriously ill due to kidney disease. And requests do a lot for her recovery. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us and to grant her to make it easy for her and to grant her whatever is best for her. And this life as well
as in the hereafter We ask Allah subhana wa tada to ease her pain and her struggles and difficulties. Allah is not an easy thing for her nor for her family. Very quickly inshallah Tana will go over the homework
that we requested from you before uncle kicks me out from Shawn. So there were two things that I requested the last verse of the Quran, the last verse to be revealed that the Quran what the guru Yeoman told Jamuna Fie in Allah, who met with coolness in cassava, or whom lay over the moon, if I remember correctly is to 81 of solar power right to 81. So Dr. Baca, what the guru your mentor john Lee nama so much cooler unison Marchesa to read it to eight one of sort of Rubicon that was the first thing of homework The second one was is of course he is broken up into 10 complete sentences anyone know them?
