Melina Maria de la ilaha illa de la
la la la la la la sharika
wanna shadow animal Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
he was heavy woman without water he either within abide by our brothers and sisters in Islam assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Allow us to 100 odd addresses as you know, the Quran in surah Allah insha Allah says yeah, you are levena Manu, oh 4 billion aku
and then Ibiza Salam says like the Mandela Mandela amanatullah wala Dena demon la della.
Today inshallah we re continue
our lectures on the themes of the Holy Quran
and today inshallah we will start with surah Toma EDA, also known as surah, Tokuda.
The students circle majda, circular opcode majda, the word nyda means table. So, this is the surah
whose name allows either given as the table and the reason the name of table is given to the surah is because the Christians had asked for a sign from Nabil Risa to confirm that he was a messenger of allows Palatine.
And they asked for a table of food to be sent from heaven.
And allows the handler agreed
to the demand and allow formula sent
a table of food from the agenda for the bunnies.
The time there were bunnies or the Jews, because the barista was, well, he wasn't he was a Jew by
by race, but not by religion. He wasn't he was a Muslim.
But that part of the surah we allows for how the scribes the sending down of the table of food comprises maybe about one or two verses of certified
the main theme of certain majda surah two nine deals with a very important question of food or food desert scope. Namely, the question of obligations, the question of contracts,
the surah talks about contracts
it of course talks about the most important contract which is the contract that we have with allows
and we all know the verse who are lost on the receipt to us when we were created by Allah, Allah tala
and we were all in the agenda at the time.
And Allah had brought us in front of himself
in general and allows for the arts is one question
the question allows found that a post was was alleged to be Rob become
who is your load?
Because the question was asked, Allah asked us who is your Lord?
And we said by law we say of course your law we confirm and affirm that we have only one load
we have only one master
we have only one God one ILA
to whom we bow down in worship.
And that is why the mission of Hamas are allowed a solemn was
Leah who janessa minute I buy the Larry Bird illa ibird at Herbalife that
the mission of Mohammed Salim was
to take men away from the worship
to the worship
of the lord of men.
And that was the sacral of the rubies of Salah to remove mental and intellectual slavery. First from the minds of the Arabs and then from the minds of the world.
Because a man or a woman cannot be free, unless his mind is free
unless he or she can make decisions in
terms of the Quran and Sunnah irrespective and regardless of what others think or do, that is freedom. Freedom is to be able to worship Allah in every aspect of your life without having to look over your shoulder without wanting to look over your shoulder.
That is freedom that is intellectual freedom. That is the freedom which was brought to us that was the liberation that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam brought to us. So this sutra is an important surah it deals with those kinds of contracts and the implications of contracts in our lives.
So to me that which is a maiden maiden and surah revealed in Medina
and some of it was revealed
at hand Jekyll without the final and favor of hides of Mohammed sallallahu wasallam.
The sutra consists of 120 verses, half the size of circle.
it is the only surah in the Holy Quran. that begins with a words Yeah, Johan levena. Ahmed.
There is no other surah in the Quran. that begins with the words oh you Muslims. Oh you people of faith. Oh, you people who believe.
And these words Yeah, you are Latina. Manu are beautiful in a dress for us. How beautiful our dresses. Yeah, you're lucky.
Are you people who believe not all my slaves are all my sevens are all Muslims.
Knowing the Quran is Allah referred to as he obviously mean. We know always when Allah talks to us with honor and respect Allah says Allah Vina
only when you've committed yourself to the faith of Islam
and you have a man are you part of Allah? Only when you have a man that is why the
law EMA the lemon law amanatullah that is a solemn said a person who cannot be trusted as no as
a person who is no Amana. He can be trusted with nothing, contact His word, no contact nothing of him. You can't leave anything in his case. He has no faith. There is no Eman, Walla Dena lemon law, and a person who breaks his contracts and his agreements as no deal
because the foundation of all religion, whether it be Christianity or Judaism, Islam is that we honor our contracts.
We know that you make business with a Jew. Why? Because you honor this contract. You make visit with a Christian Why? Because you're honest, this contract. You make buzzard as a Muslim. Why? Because your honor this country, the moment you doesn't honor his contract, you will make any business maybe once you will, but after that you won't anymore. Son visa Sanam says if you are a person, who do not honor your contracts and agreements, you have no deal, you're not a Christian will not a Jew, you're not a Muslim.
Because that is the foundation of
what that is the foundation of human relationships. All human relationships break down where it breaks down when one of the parties breaks the agreement.
unilaterally, then the whole relationship breaks down. people steal from you can forgive them. People beat you up, you can forgive them.
People do all things you can forgive them. But whenever it breaks in agreement that is made, especially when it's in writing, even a verbal agreement, it breaks friendships, it breaks family apart, but it's everything apart.
And the worst part of an agreement is when you deny that you made the agreement
that's another for another time. So in this surah then alone founder addresses as
88 times in the Quran, Allah says yeah, you are Latina Harmon
and 16 times alone only answer to the very important
and we will look at the surah in relation to circle Baccarat and all the others who are that we have spoken about.
What is the meaning of your levena Ahmed? When Allah says oh you people of faith, are you people who believe what does it mean?
It means it says it's as if Allah saying to us, yeah, man, I meant to be like, oh you people who truly believe in Allah yamamura de la hora. Oh, you are pleased that Allah is your Lord Yamanaka, Allah Buddha, those of you who confirm
that you worship Allah, you are literally
asked me to listen and obey, listen and obey the words of Allah.
We only have for the time, we have for a very short period of time.
And the older you get, the more you realize how little time you had and how little time you have left. If you are 60 years old, using what 60 years 60 is posterity, where did it go? What happened to it?
I was intrigued the other day, I spoke to one of the gentlemen in the back sitting on the chair. Of course, there is the final.
I'm not saying it's it's
I shouldn't say that. But I spoke to one of the gentlemen and the gentleman said to me, he said, You know,
he said to somebody, a younger person, he said, Come and sit here, you know, on the cheek. So the person said no, no, no.
I said, Well, that is the fast lane.
And the fast lane two way but
I found it quite intriguing. So so we only know fastly? I mean you're 60 or 70 years you ask yourself, you 5050 or 65 even 2018 So when is 18 years ago we either What have I done? What have I achieved 18 years or 30 years or 40 years 50 years.
But at least if you can say to yourself as a personal matter, I've never broken an agreement. I've always paid my debts.
I've always spoken the truth. Those are the achievements we've been talking about Omnia houses are built on reports of brand new board,
how much money you got in the bank, how much money your wife is gonna get one day when you die how many millions of rands of policy you took out
which by the way is hot on
all those things are meaningless.
Because the thing that will matter in Paradise is your character.
So character, so this surah deals with that strength of character. And it opens with the following verse which allows 100 says yeah, you are Latina Amano,
are you people who believe fulfill all your contracts, agreements and obligations. And as I say to you before
arrival say no.
They had to say, inshallah,
because inshallah just become a word, it's become an easy way out of not fulfilling obligation. Somebody says, You're coming this afternoon in Sharla.
But you know, you're not going to be able to come you're going to go to work come in afternoon from St. JOHN. Are you coming tomorrow?
Monday, next week?
So maybe in charlas, and you know, that if from the beginning, are you coming to my door tomorrow morning? Yes, you have tomorrow, inshallah? What time? Seven o'clock.
That was five years ago.
So I say to people, if you can't do something, say I can't see. You say no. He says, Can you can you come to my house on Sunday? No.
Because you can't. Who can't do? Can you lend me 5000? to come see me on Monday? Say No, I can't I don't have the money. I can't I can't promise you. If I die tomorrow, I've made the promise in the last one that
you can do something say new Muslims must lead. You see we have the easy way we have Alhamdulillah in Sha laws, martial laws. The Christians don't have that.
That's where maybe they're more
consistent with the agreements because they don't have a Christian Saint charlo maybe some of them weren't leeches and God willing, but we have these nice words you see in sha Allah Masha, Allah hamdulillah
so we just throw that out. And the other person on the other side he's a Muslim when yours is Arabic word.
Mashallah, this man. You are listening, but if not good, so good for for personal development for personal care. Muslim That is why my teacher used to say to us the height of wisdom and then repeat this. I've said this before. When you want to know a wise man, a wise man and a wise woman and a wise mother and a wise father. Our
Are those who know when to say yes and when to say no
you know when to say yes and you know when to say
now please don't leave the magic to say guys yes is when he may say inshallah
Of course if you know 150% that the only be able to keep you from falling that agreement is your death saying
but it is a slightest doubt point 00001 in your mind to say maybe I won't be able to fulfill what I've said don't say Charla say no.
People will respect you.
They will come to know that you are mister No.
All right, so Allah says, Yeah, you will Edina Amano opening verse opening gambit. Allah says, fulfill your obligations.
What you say you must do what you say. Because our laws around the law he does what he says when he promises he fulfilled his promise.
our responsibility towards the Earth.
Our representation of Allah on the dunya
our advisor to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
out leaving of things which is haram.
Eating of that which is only Hello All these things are food. We will hear as we listen to the surah we will hear the different times and the importance of some of the contracts that we make with the laws.
Say thou shalt have the local Allah. Allah says
in Surah tell me that cannot
say the ayah says the last surah reveal to the Navy so Allah Salaam was here.
not last in the Quran last revealed.
She says from our fee ha Min halaal In fact, she says whatever you find in the surah of halaal consider it to be hollow and whatever you find it to be haram consider it to be Haram. And in this surah
allows the handler has given the biggest favor to the to the muslimeen Allah has revealed the verse
on the day of arafa
to the NaVi sauce Allah aluma. xml to lacantina comb to add a commonality or a literal common Islam greatest favor. We still only on the sama Mohamed Salah which was today I have perfected for you your deen completed for you my favor upon you and chosen for you Islam as a way of life.
So this surah
according to say the actual law is a surah rollin haraam
sutra of halal and haram, the Navy Salam said and lemo rajala comm surah Talmud teach your children your male children surah majda
and teach your females surah a new
guidance for the men surah tala Ada guidance for ladies surah
what is one of the central themes of the surah we've heard now the surah speaks to people who believe it opens with that. Only surah in the Quran. Oh, it is the last hoorah that was in vetoes and
it deals with certain themes. The first theme that it deals with is uptime. Watch, what you eat and what you drink.
Secondly, deals with a family and it deals with marriage. Thirdly, it deals with faith and that which breaks the faith. Fourthly deals with worship. Remember, we are slaves of Allah and yet we are also his representatives on the earth. We have this dual responsibility may 7, yet he has given us another station and that is the station of khilafah. We are is halifa fill up. We are His representative we represent a last time and it deals with with worship. I buy that as we will hear later. It deals with judgment and justice, establishment of justice. And finally, it deals with how to regulate the relationship between Muslims and other religions, particularly Judaism and
Last time that tells us what our relationship should be with other faiths.
There were many times in our history.
And unfortunately, history isn't something that you can undo.
I don't know if I should talk about the sad parts of our history, but maybe I should just mention to you
that there was a time in our history when
Muslims treated non Muslims, Jews and Christians better than Muslims.
There was a time when we had a group of people, known as the average
went about killing other Muslims.
For reasons that other Muslims did not believe the way they believed.
And they considered all Muslims who didn't believe the way they believe this caffeine to be killed.
Those other Muslims were killed, decided that the only strategy to use to save their lives or to say he's not a Muslim
Subhan Allah, can you believe one Muslim Central animals depend on the whole Allah for a mandala?
That is the kind of society is nurtured by
ignorance and intolerance.
We have another situation
that happened maybe 800 years ago, but another situation
which happened in the early 20s in India,
very sad actually.
In a country, which houses
one of the greatest institutions of Islamic learning in the world,
and many other institutions
that housed great Allah.
Mona Alia suddenly was considered to be great scholar, one of the founders of Dearborn.
Within that mill, you have so much knowledge and Dean.
the mother had, for example,
Hana fees or the Sharpies with the molecules of humbleness, they sometimes believe that
they are correct, and everybody else is wrong.
So, the shafia, I believe is correct.
And wrong. Individuals believe they're correct, Sharpies are
so much so that in India, the hanafis believed that they were so correct
that there was no other opinion regarding a woman who wish to leave an abusive marriage.
Now knowing the Shafi mother, a woman cannot leave an abusive relationship at all. Now, of course, he beats
100 because he can't give can't break the marriage. In fact, the only time a marriage can be broken is when the man cannot consummate the marriage. Only then, as a woman the right to go to a judge and have the marriage broke.
So many women in India Muslim women found themselves in situations where they lived
because Hindu custom was very invasive,
relationship or sell abusive, but no Muslim judge will give them
with another marriage. Only one reason for Norman if he doesn't support a communist
even if one of the main members of the men's family would interfere with a sexually
she can't get
So what are these Muslim women do
in order to get out of such an abusive relationship?
Because Abu hanifa hanafy say another bond even if I wouldn't have agreed with his own words at the time but the 100 be safe.
The mother says the only time a marriage is broken is when the woman leaves her faith.
So many, many, many Muslim women in India used to go to the church and formally denounce the faith.
Get a certificate from the priest
presented to the husband whoever may be so she would automatically be out of such a relationship.
What was the response of the mouth the time
do you think?
What do you think you would do if such a case came to you?
You say but
our Deen does not only consist of one manga. This Mr. Mushaf uses Mr. Malik who says a woman in abusive relationship can get herself a now he can marry
it with Diovan institution. Welcome all Alexandra is a great scholar
maybe 20 years to resolve the issue.
In that time, 1000s of Muslim women had to deny their own faith in order to move out to their own.
So it is important then,
for us to understand
is a very wide faith.
It is important for us to begin to understand that these are maturity. But I'm also in Maliki, I'm also I'm also
I'm all of those things together. Whatever would facilitate
whatever would keep people within the faith of Islam, those are the things that I should place on the table in front of my Muslim brothers.
That's a long discussion, which we can go in some other time.
So yeah, as I said, with all these themes of circle Maya,
the important theme that it starts off with is the theme of halal and haram.
In eating and drinking, in hunting and slaughtering.
And there is a relationship between the food that Allah sent from heaven.
So that is the ideal, absolute ideal
that we should eat that which comes closest to food from heaven.
Meaning food, which allows for hunter less pleased with
food as we know is very important in our lives very important in the lives of all human beings.
But it is an obligation with Allah
that we seek out food which is haram
and leave that which is harm. Now, this may seem like a very simple statement, food which is Hello.
Unfortunately, today it is not so
maybe 100 years ago, 200 years ago is the time of the prophet SAW Salah it was easy to distinguish between halal and haram it's clear making clear today it's not today you go to a place
or you buy chocolates in the shop.
Do you know that the glazing on top of the chocolate
Shine, shine because they glazed chocolates and I've got the sun up in this I must be careful what I say.
Maybe I'll ask him to confirm what I say is right or wrong.
the glazing on the chocolate
maybe not all chocolates, some chocolates are made
of an insect
comes from China was something about it means it comes from an insane I know Muslims can't eat insects
which means that by extension we call it the chocolate
You go to a seafood restaurant that serves seafood.
when they do the basting of the fish or whatever they do, they use brushes that have poked bristles.
So you buy a pie in the shop. But the diet makes the pie it takes to
senior to you know, use it in the news Brian miniverse bra isn't it? If you ever checked at the Bristol you have a dome is made of
probably 90% of the brushes you use is made up for Brussels.
You should get one with plastic Brussels.
But be that as it may, many of the ingredients that are used today for sauces, for example, is a nice source of taste nice.
But how do we know that the ingredients of the source that is why we have today, which we didn't need before, people were trained
in verifying the ingredients
of what we eat today. Because the moment today,
if you buy a bottle of tomato sauce or bottle of sauce in the supermarket, you'll be surprised to know that the ingredients in that bottle comes from maybe 10 countries in the world.
It's sourced from Sudan, from Brazil, from China, from Europe, from South Africa, because they specialization in the making of making various characters.
But I think it's important for us to take note
of what we put into the
into the not so much ourselves that we say, but what you put into the belly of your children, because they're not they're not responsible yet to look after themselves. Because remember what you put on the table, they eat that so many times you ask ourselves,
Nicholas fluke and he can answer.
And he can have his own her word or something. So that
isn't because of what we do to them. Maybe we put a lot of rebar in our photos.
These are all agreements which were made with a law that we broke breaking that we would eat only then we just holla we will concede only that best agreement that's an act that we made or the law was followed.
the question that ceramide addresses right from the beginning is a surah of halal and haram.
The surah makes certain proclamations.
And the first proclamation in makes.
But before I go there, let me just recap of what we've done so far. And the themes of the sewer, as we've done so far, we say the theme of Surah Baqarah is what we said alongside Mahabharata and Surah Baqarah. hands over the title deed of the earth to men.
And it appoints men can as the managers of the world. We are the CEOs of the world, physical world, each one of us, Muslim, Christian, or whatever we are, we are given the philosophy of running the world he said, Be obedient to a ruler even if he has a raisin in its pitch black is just follow Him
and fight the oppressor even if he's a Muslim.
So it's important that
that we have very clear ideas
of what we are so Suna Baccarat deals with
the appointment of men. As a CEO of the world.
A lot of song tells us I've given you the title deed of the earth, I want you to be firm,
be firm stand firm, especially in the face of opposition
to the status of management which are which are which have granted you certainly to dissolve deals with justice and mercy for the oppressed for the weak especially women.
And this is especially of note today.
When so many things are happening. Not only now but since the time of America salon. Women have been treated abusively
in the business
It's become so mind boggling that it's leading to husbands killing the wives. The girlfriends stuff will
and where does it start?
begins in the home.
It begins with a way
and the things we tell our girls
how to behave.
How not to be. Don't ask your husband what he does. Don't ask your husband where he goes. All this haram information we give to the wife
to the Son, we say you are the master.
Your word should below
and to the girl who also say suburbian
he beats me Mama. Saba.
He has a phrase mama Saba.
He doesn't give me money for food, you go work, don't worry.
So what do you think is the end result of that kind of inflammation? inflammation, completely contrary to the spirit and letter
of the personality of the greatest manual of Mohammed Salah larussa.
So in Surah, Nisa, Allah, because they come in any we are, how can we run an institution like the world without justice without risk?
So that will neither then comes to tell us that we should fulfil what we found in Al Baqarah, imraan and visa
and the first declaration is Yahoo, Latina, hamano alphabet, or Hayden let nakoma hematology
that you should fulfill your obligations. And Allah says I have made for you Hello.
Animals which are Hello sheep, cows, the things we know what we just had on
and along swaddled Allah gives us the example of the Jews
on whom Allah had imposed haram
because of the fact that they had gone beyond and against the commands of Allah subhanaw taala
I'll also have the losses
at Yamaha locomotory back to Rajaratnam today have I made her out for you all good things again.
Allow doesn't say yeah, things which Allah Allah.
Allah says, not only must you eat that which halaal it must also be good for you. So Coca Cola, maybe halber is bad for you.
KFC, maybe halaal in essence, I don't know where the chicken comes from any case, but it's extremely bad for you. Not bad, extremely bad. No, no. on a on a major from between one and 10 KFC probably falls at 15
What I'm saying is that goes along with Mr. Pickens. halala can eat it. No, no, no, no, no. Allah says
eat that which is hollow and good.
It may be good for you. Sometimes he feels that we just hollow out because he's
so something was presented some meters have been perverted. Then I won't eat this. He didn't say Tara but he says I won't eat it. Which means hello but nothing, no, none of the good things.
That is an indication that yes, there will be things which is good for you. So you can't say hello Zico you come by the by the Hydra to come by the wedding. And they said actually, and Germany next year says
you shouldn't eat it. No man eat it, man. Man.
And you go home, you get this massive headache and blood pressure goes up your sugar levels goes up.
Because you refuse to acknowledge the two parts to eating Hello, and good.
This after Allah
impressed upon us the importance of the Act that we made with him in terms of eating that we just halaal and feeding our children that images
And maybe I should re tell you the story
of St. Lucie, which I've said already before, but it's a nice story. So I'd like to repeat the story. St. Jude's, of course, as you know, is the great
He was a small boy, very brilliant as a young boy in madrasa
memorize the Quran very quickly.
And his teacher was very impressed with him and his teacher wanted to know find out who his parents so the teacher went to the village doctrine, the doctrine is those dudes who don't the mother opened the door, and he said to the mother, Mashallah, Salaam Alaikum I've just come to congratulate you and your child marshallese he'll, Wow, good Muslim genius in the class is the best student I've ever had in my life since I'm teaching. What?
Tell me, how did you raise him?
poor family feel extremely poor.
How did you raise him? Tell me just one thing that you did. She said, whenever I used to breastfeed him. Before I used to breastfeed him. I used to take Hulu every time.
When he needed to be fed, I forced his take will do and then brace.
that's the next verse in the Quran. Allah talks about Hulu.
First about food. And
then he said I'd love to meet the Father. So she said, Well, the father is in the field, you know, it's crazy. His cow in the field, he'll be back soon. The teacher says I'll wait. And the father came with a cow and fall and the teacher looked at the car and the cow's mouth had a rope around it. Because math is tied back to the rope.
So the teacher asked, you know, why are you hurting the animal you tying a rope around with animals? Or you call this
stump? Now, okay.
And he said, Well, you know, I graze my animal in my field, which is far away from my house. I have to traverse I have to cross the field of other farmers.
And I'm afraid if I don't do this to me, you will eat the grass from the land of the other farmers, which will make the milk haram for me and my family.
So what did Allah produce for you? A child said nusil became a great scholar. Great, right.
Because of the simple commitment to the food, the context we should make or the law was palatable. So the next thing alswamitra speaks about.
And that's why I said no cheese.
story so important. Los Angeles is in the sixth verse of surah.
admira Yeah, you're Latina Avenue, is akin to me, la sala de la Ciudad ohakune. Ada, Milan Rafi.
From San Jose Luis, from Los Angeles, oh, people who believe
when you stand up for
wash your faces, and your hands up to it up to your elbows
and rub your heads and wash your feet and tokens. Immediately all
the tiny bottle food, a lot of talks about the theory about
the good things with which you should feed the rule.
First, the stomach which is the physical
body which has given us then the spirit the route which is more important, which Allah, Allah says, when you want to give when you want to start giving to your soul. The first thing you should do is to learn to make Hulu properly.
And that is why in my time when I was a child, the madrasa teachers my father and my mother used to spend lots and lots of time on Voodoo. It wasn't something we say taught in the classroom. It was something which it was taught outside of the tap.
Every little child was taken to the tap and every child was shown how to take under the temp. Today it is in a classroom with
PowerPoint, and maybe a video device. So no that time it was the real thing that was done.
So it's important than cleansing of this. Look how beautiful the Quran is. When we look at it and say, Samira, we read it. First about food then about hoodoo, and we think these things are disparate that no can
I was about food and dog somato but when we really contemplate and look at it we can see the connection there's a tiny connection between Sora Sora minor all these things and they are just interspersed by names but the Quran is a complete flowing book from the first letter to the last letter.
It shows us the comprehensive nature of Islam and it shows us this Quran and this man has his program was given to us by none except Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So in sha Allah is found, when we read ceramide again, I mean, this is the first six verses, but it sets the tone for the rest of the surah so we are Longhorns Allah guide us May Allah give inshallah that we become more aware of that which we eat, that which we feed our children and also more importantly, that we serve Allah and gain the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala
our worship of Allah correctly, cinema even hotter Finally, when you take will do
used to shiver.
Like somebody who's got a fever, a certain red used to start shaking, the Sahaba used to ask him you know,
I mean, today you scurry to the, to the place you take people do that. They smile, they have conversations.
And just you know, 123 you know, in Spanish, I'm not sure if you've gone through the motions.
Or the parts of you do, it's fine, but not compared to shake 10 a look at this look of fear in his eyes tavas him and online. He says
this will do that. I'm taking rims that are going to stand in front of Allah and I don't know how I'm going to sign it.
Says I flee I take this window, but how am I going to stand in I'm going to now stand in the presence of my Lord.
That is why they are the people of Ghana already on earth for local Allah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa Taala.
