00:00:37 --> 00:01:02

Last week, we commenced with a description of the purpose of surah Toma ADA, which is the first surah in the Holy Quran. And we said that the other name for surah Midas or code or the surah that deals with the covenants or the pledges, the contracts that men has with allows for Hanover tada

00:01:04 --> 00:01:25

and of course, the contract which we have for the low Swan Matala is contained between the covers of the Quran that is a contract, which we signed with a low squanto tala. Before we entered the dunya. Allows founder led asked us to make the pledge and we made the pledge and allows for 100,000 return

00:01:26 --> 00:01:27

and given us

00:01:29 --> 00:01:52

a gift which he had not given to any oma before us. In fact, maybe we should take as two gifts. He gave us the gift, and he gave us the gift of the bringing of the gift. I was going to say that the giver of the gifts but that sounds like something else. So allowes founder gave us

00:01:54 --> 00:01:55

Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

his most beloved messenger

00:02:01 --> 00:02:02

a mercy for the world.

00:02:03 --> 00:02:15

And he gave us with that the book The Quran, and as I said last week, allows Muhammad Allah had given us a perfect book and a perfect face. Ali oma

00:02:20 --> 00:02:37

and yo Mark Mottola, Kadena Kumar, Los Angeles says that today and I'm sure you all know this verse ever perfected for you, your deen your religion, your way of life. And I have completed my favor upon you, which is the gift of Mohammed Salah there's a lump

00:02:38 --> 00:03:18

and many other favors which are like bestowed upon us by choosing us as the final oma. And it's a Blissett oma, what I'll do to Lacombe, Islamic Dena, and Allah says he had chosen was Islam as the way of life. So we have in our hands, a book I contract, which is a perfect contract between men, and allows for Hannah Montana and we said that every surah is not an individual surah but every surah is part of a series of 114 suor which Allah revealed to Muhammad Salah so Sudan, Baccarat doesn't stand aside from Central America.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:27

Now neither the surah Allah and Ron and all the others who are we said, for example, that sort of Bukhara the intent and purpose of sort of Baccarat was

00:03:28 --> 00:03:35

to allow ban and to grant men the facility to rule and to manage the world.

00:03:37 --> 00:03:38

So the world was given to men.

00:03:40 --> 00:03:58

Man wasn't given to the world. Man's destiny is the ashra we don't belong here. our destinies in the era our destiny is to complete the circle from where we come our home which is in the agenda, that is where we come from. That is the passport that we hold.

00:03:59 --> 00:04:18

That is the visa that we hold in our passport, we don't have a visa for the student. That's why we said Sam said couldn't fit dunya can nikka Haribo Abu severely be in this world like a stranger? Or just a possible because it's exactly who we are and what we are. So we the world has been given to us

00:04:20 --> 00:04:24

to manage we are CEOs of this dunya that is the message of circle Docker

00:04:26 --> 00:04:43

and the message of Surah termica which we are presently busy with is that alswamitra says in the beginning of the sutra, yeah you will Latina armano Ofu builder aku the oh you people who believe in Allah are you people of faith are you Muslim.

00:04:45 --> 00:05:00

fulfill the contracts which you make. Not only was Allah is the Greatest covenant which will which we will hear about today, but also the covenant and the contracts and the pledges that you make amongst yourself, irrespective of whether it is was

00:05:00 --> 00:05:08

A Muslim or non Muslim, a Muslim honors His Word and His contact with whoever he comes into, into, into into contact with.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:12

Now the fourth proclamation

00:05:13 --> 00:05:19

I've given you already three proclamation circle majda. The fourth proclamation is the proclamation of justice.

00:05:21 --> 00:05:29

And you and I know that justice underlies it is fundamental to the fabric of life when justice breaks down.

00:05:31 --> 00:05:52

We've seen in our country violence racists hate units of justice breaks down. Justice in the home breaks down justice in the community breaks down justice in the courts break down justice in the implementing of justice in the police system breaks down, the whole system collapses. So our long silences so tonight.

00:05:53 --> 00:06:15

Yeah, you will levena Armando Kudo. Our Mina de la hija de Bie locust la sala says, Oh, you people who believe be steadfast witnesses for Allah, in equity or interest. What does it mean? Beef stick for fast witnesses Well, it means that your full commitment

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

your full

00:06:20 --> 00:06:24

allegiance is with Allah alone.

00:06:26 --> 00:06:29

When you speak you speak

00:06:30 --> 00:06:34

to elevate the word which allows for hamata sent to us

00:06:37 --> 00:06:44

and allows wonderla says late not hatred of any people seduce you that you do not justly.

00:06:45 --> 00:06:55

So just as we expect our to deal justly with us. So allows wildly expects us to deal justly with other people. Deal justly Allah says

00:06:56 --> 00:07:05

that is near to your duty. In fact, it is your duty, near but it is your duty, observe your duty to Allah. have Taqwa

00:07:06 --> 00:07:14

really allows for hundreds informed with what you do unless he knows everything that you do. And we will take this justice on different planes

00:07:19 --> 00:07:20

as a hobby,

00:07:21 --> 00:07:32

but then you have no amount of money but she won the lottery and he said he was a young man. And his father gave him a gift in a DVD said his father gave him a horse as a gift.

00:07:35 --> 00:07:38

But his mother, um, Robin Tarawa

00:07:40 --> 00:07:41

said to him,

00:07:43 --> 00:07:49

I do not agree with your father, that you should give you this gift.

00:07:52 --> 00:07:54

Mother sometimes they have more

00:07:56 --> 00:08:04

of a more equitable nature than fathers have fathers tend sometimes to favor some children above other children.

00:08:06 --> 00:08:17

Mothers most of the time, then to look at all the siblings equally. So fathers have this tendency to to favoritism. And this mother saw that as when

00:08:18 --> 00:08:28

Norman had a leaning of favoritism towards the sun and he gave the Sonos and he said I will not agree to this unless and until

00:08:30 --> 00:08:34

the Prophet himself is a witness to this transaction.

00:08:35 --> 00:08:46

I want you and your father to go to the Navy so Salaam and then Ibiza solemn, must witness the fact that your father had given this horse to you only then will accept.

00:08:48 --> 00:09:02

So the father took the son to the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said to the Prophet, the Rasul Allah, I've given this gift to my son, and I wish you to be a witness that it is gift but now belongs to him.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:09

So the prophets of Salaam said to him say to Norman akula wala duck, Nikhil, Tabitha

00:09:10 --> 00:09:16

Prophet said to him, tell me Norman, did you give each child a similar gift?

00:09:17 --> 00:09:33

gave the child or do you give all your children roses? He said, Lyra Salalah only gave him owes. Now Mr. Salama responded and said it Apple law tequila and the loopy oladipo. Baby Salim said to him, Fear Allah.

00:09:35 --> 00:09:47

Be mindful of your deity to Allah subhanaw taala why the loo and what is your duty to allow Swanton that is to be just as the loo be just

00:09:49 --> 00:09:50

be just

00:09:51 --> 00:09:57

fee Oh, logical when it comes to your children. You should treat all of them equally.

00:09:59 --> 00:09:59

You're not really

00:10:00 --> 00:10:01

Why to do this to your wives,

00:10:02 --> 00:10:10

but your children required to love all your wives equally. But you are required to love all your children equally.

00:10:12 --> 00:10:15

Every society team, so do justice

00:10:16 --> 00:10:58

providentially to him in Neela shadow Allah Jo Rin evisa salam said, I will not be a witness to this transaction, because this is an unjust transaction, go home, I will not be a witness to this transaction. So it shows on a very basic level. I mean, we think sometimes you know, but as my money or it's, this belongs to me, I can give it to I want to give it or this son is better than the other one. Or this daughter is a better daughter than the other daughter, or the son has given me more problems and the other son, or I just like the other son, because maybe looks like me.

00:11:00 --> 00:11:12

Or I like the daughter, maybe because she wears a scarf and the other one doesn't wear a scarf. You're not allowed to discriminate between you children, as parents, as a parent not allowed to do that.

00:11:13 --> 00:11:25

And as a person in charge of other people, you're not allowed to favor your employees one above the other because of a personal one or a personal fancy

00:11:27 --> 00:11:37

American last Rajaratnam also great to have you have you know the name he was put in charge of Egypt. He was the first governor of Egypt after the conquest of Egypt.

00:11:40 --> 00:11:41

No, no.

00:11:42 --> 00:11:48

It wasn't in time Omar will hottub Omar Omar in the time former Egypt was conquered and Omar made him the Khalifa.

00:11:53 --> 00:11:56

But this happened after him sorry, this wasn't nice time. This was in the time of

00:12:00 --> 00:12:01


00:12:03 --> 00:12:06

The fifth halifa I can't wait to see anyway.

00:12:08 --> 00:12:11

He said was walking in the street one day in Cairo.

00:12:12 --> 00:12:15

And an ordinary man was walking in front of him.

00:12:17 --> 00:12:21

And he pushed the man out of the way and the man refused any work the man with his work.

00:12:23 --> 00:12:29

And he said Who do you think you are? You know who I am. I am the son of the ruler and the ruler son.

00:12:30 --> 00:13:13

So the man sitting by this he said the man was so caught up about this men are so affected. He went to Medina, Thomasville hardtop, and he said to armor, armor, this is what your Harley fastener done to me, he would mean the street because I walked in front of him. So almost Israeli, said yes must send a messenger to the halifa armory when America was named Omar Abdulaziz center missing the dream to say to him, your son is here I want you to come and bring you this man is laid a complaint please bring you come with yourself to Medina. And they came to Medina. And it was established by American labs azeez by American hottub that he beat this man.

00:13:15 --> 00:13:26

And our say to him, gave the judgment and say to him in the judgment he said to him, Mata estaba tunas, work hard to adapt to Omaha to Aurora. He said

00:13:28 --> 00:13:49

to the young men, the prince, since when do you enslave people, when Allah had given birth when their mothers had given birth to them as female? Look at the freedom of Islam. Look at the democracy in Islam. He said, since when do you say enslave people when their mothers gave birth to them as free men.

00:13:52 --> 00:13:55

So that is the basic level of justice.

00:13:57 --> 00:13:59

And when it comes to wives and more than one wife,

00:14:01 --> 00:14:04

then materially you are

00:14:06 --> 00:14:15

under an obligation to give each wife equally materially terms of money, houses, cars, material things, you are not

00:14:16 --> 00:14:45

you will not be judged or asked by Allah but how much you love the one above the other one? No. The Prophet always cried. Now let's say the Allah please do not hold me responsible for matters of my heart. I cannot decide who I should love and not loving tells my wives that is comes from our heart. So I'm not responsible for that. But you can hold me responsible for if I do not deal with them, equally intimate in matters of,

00:14:47 --> 00:15:00

of material things. So justice then is the fourth proclamation of surah. Al made very important in our lives and very important in the life of a community. We can see

00:15:00 --> 00:15:25

Today, all the violence that is going on, it is the breaking of the covenant which we have with Allah subhanaw taala, including the Christians and the Jews itself. They've also broken the covenant with a loss Parramatta, intuitive, neither will also come across the first murder committed in the sea of men. We come across the first murder committed by men upon men, namely, the murder of

00:15:27 --> 00:15:34

Hobbes by corbeil. That correct, but the other way around, is it our bill was the good man in Kerberos, the bad man

00:15:36 --> 00:15:38

and we know the story that

00:15:40 --> 00:15:41

the historians tell us

00:15:44 --> 00:16:03

this happened many, many 1000 millions of years ago so we have only the prophecies and didn't say anything about it. There are some Hadith on it, but it's not authentic. I mean, not authentic authentic like in Buhari or Muslim way they say that they'll be Adam Alice's salami having been the first man and his wife, however, being the first woman who was nobody else on Earth.

00:16:05 --> 00:16:09

Whoever however, was pregnant, she gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl.

00:16:11 --> 00:16:15

And again, she would give birth to boy in a girl and a boy of the one.

00:16:16 --> 00:16:44

Beth would marry the girl of the other birth. And so you couldn't marry the girl that he was born with. You have to marry the girl from the from another from another birth. So there was a complication and there was rivalry between two brothers named you have in common as to which daughter they should marry harville didn't want to marry the daughter that was destined for him. He said the girl that for carbon was I mean, hobbles Sorry, I this girl was

00:16:45 --> 00:17:01

was nicer and prettier. So corbeil didn't want to accept his bride. And he, his father, maybe Adam ordered them to make a sacrifice. The sacrifice of harville was accepted. kaabil sacrifices are accepted.

00:17:02 --> 00:17:09

And harville was so angered by this that he decided to kill his brother.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:17

That is the first murder committed in the history of man. So having killed Bobby, and allows mahanoy tala

00:17:18 --> 00:17:29

talks about this incident and the severity of this incident. But it's not so much about the murder of RB that the Quran concentrates on the Quran concentrates

00:17:30 --> 00:17:34

on the response of harville to his brother threatening to kill him.

00:17:35 --> 00:17:38

When his brother threatened to kill him What did he say? He said,

00:17:39 --> 00:17:49

If you threatened to kill me, I'm not going to raise my hands to you want to do anything? You decide that is your what you want to do. If you don't fear allows for hunter then

00:17:51 --> 00:17:55

I put my trust and faith in allows Hunter. So

00:17:57 --> 00:18:05

it was more about the reaction of the victim rather than the act of the perpetrator in this regard.

00:18:07 --> 00:18:09

And we're here with an emphasis Allah

00:18:11 --> 00:18:12

talks about killing

00:18:13 --> 00:18:30

and particularly Muslims killing Muslims, Nafisa Salaam says in a hadith is that awaji Muslim money per se fe Hema episode Sallam said, If two Muslims meet with guns or swords or knives, or whatever it is,

00:18:33 --> 00:18:34

intending to fight with one another.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:38

for coffee lovers wallmark tool

00:18:40 --> 00:18:44

in Ibiza Salaam says both the murderer and the victim go to *.

00:18:45 --> 00:19:04

Both the murderer and the murdered person will go to jail. So of course, it's a Havasu rasulillah. But how is it possible? How is it that the victim will also go to Johanna episode Samson, because he also had the intention of killing his killer.

00:19:06 --> 00:19:11

So both had intention to kill each other. Unless, of course, the one person was

00:19:13 --> 00:19:17

an armed and other person killed. Two Muslims

00:19:18 --> 00:19:23

intend to kill each other, both the perpetrator and the victim and we'll go to john.

00:19:25 --> 00:19:32

So as I said in our current Harrison, alacati sahibi, because both had the intention of killing the other one now

00:19:33 --> 00:19:41

brings us of course, to a very important topic, which of course, is the wars taking place at the moment in Syria, Afghanistan, and all these places where Muslims are

00:19:44 --> 00:19:45

killing other Muslims.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:58

Even Abby Solomon said that Muslims who kill other Muslims, both will go to jahannam. What is the condition then, of those Muslims that kill themselves?

00:20:01 --> 00:20:02

I think it is important

00:20:06 --> 00:20:06


00:20:09 --> 00:20:11

we understand

00:20:13 --> 00:20:16

that in the context of oppression

00:20:18 --> 00:20:20

This is not just anger

00:20:21 --> 00:20:26

in the context of the removal of an oppressor

00:20:28 --> 00:20:30

or usurper

00:20:32 --> 00:20:34

or a leader

00:20:35 --> 00:20:40

who doesn't practice justice amongst these people be a Muslim or non Muslim

00:20:42 --> 00:20:51

that becomes obligatory upon man to remove such a person from his position, and all those who are supporting

00:20:52 --> 00:21:00

so yeah, it's not a question just if it's just a question of Muslims killing other Muslims for no reason whatsoever. Like you don't like the Muslims you're killing.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:17

That is the victim and the purpose of going to * but we Muslims are fighting another person, be a Muslim or non Muslim, to remove him from an oppressive position which holds over other Muslims, then that is part of our obligation to allows

00:21:19 --> 00:21:39

or if you fight a Muslim because he goes against the laws of the Quran, then that is an ultimate, and that is presidents in the history of Islam. abubaker acidic Rolla Tron sent an army against Muslims for only one reason and one reason alone 1000s of Muslims were killed in this battle.

00:21:40 --> 00:21:45

The only reason is sent out to them was they refuse to pay the car to him.

00:21:46 --> 00:22:25

They said after the death of the Navy so solemn they said we will not play soccer anymore because Mohammed Salim has died because he has passed away. It stops. So Rebecca said well, law he, even if you keep away from me the rope that ties the neck of the camel, nevermind the camel, I will fight you until you give it although I was against sending an army, he said but he said, How can you send the army? These people c'est la ilaha illAllah they make Salah they fought in the month of Ramadan, they go for Hajj and you want to kill them? He said, of course.

00:22:28 --> 00:22:40

Islam is an indivisible faith, you can divide take one principle out of the deen if you take one principle out, if you take one color out all building collapses.

00:22:41 --> 00:22:52

And I'm not going to set the precedent in Islam. So it's very important to distinguish between the removal of oppression, not the operation which America tells us our places.

00:22:54 --> 00:22:54

That's another matter.

00:22:56 --> 00:23:02

We shouldn't be saying, well, America saying there's no democracy in country x and therefore those people are

00:23:04 --> 00:23:07

it's an obligation for the west to go in there to kill. No.

00:23:08 --> 00:23:11

We are talking about real oppression. We're talking about

00:23:12 --> 00:23:24

real denial of people of their rights in a particular country in a particular situation. And reppin many times in history segnale karamo llotja going against mafia

00:23:25 --> 00:23:38

went against walls were fought between Muslims, not because they were Muslims at the time, but because of the oppression which they spread throughout their allows rather than a visa Salam says

00:23:39 --> 00:23:42

about oppression and about

00:23:43 --> 00:23:45

the oppressor and the oppressed.

00:23:52 --> 00:23:56

Now visa Salam says it to feed our children Thelma Lu,

00:23:58 --> 00:24:00

y incarnate min Catherine

00:24:01 --> 00:24:06

for ino, les Sabina. However, in the life Jacques evisa salam says,

00:24:09 --> 00:24:12

Take care and be aware and be afraid

00:24:14 --> 00:24:18

of the draw of a person whom you have oppressed.

00:24:19 --> 00:24:21

who may have done the wrong to

00:24:22 --> 00:24:28

what incarnate mean carefully, even if it is the door of a cafe.

00:24:30 --> 00:24:35

What does anybody say? Be careful of the DA of the oppressed.

00:24:44 --> 00:24:51

Many times because we come from a dark heritage of apartheid.

00:24:54 --> 00:24:56

Some of us still believe

00:24:58 --> 00:25:00

that when a person has got a break

00:25:00 --> 00:25:04

color we can do and say what we want to that person.

00:25:07 --> 00:25:09

Maybe Sam says Be careful

00:25:12 --> 00:25:20

of that person whether it's going to be black or white It doesn't matter. bootstrap is an to Allah and complaints to Allah.

00:25:21 --> 00:25:27

What about me Sam says, fine No laser been our main ally.

00:25:28 --> 00:25:33

There is no screen between these two are in between allows Voila.

00:25:35 --> 00:25:38

Now can you imagine oppressing a Muslim?

00:25:41 --> 00:25:43

So it's a very serious matter.

00:25:44 --> 00:25:55

That is why one of the first things that Islam came to eradicate in the Arabian Peninsula was racial superiority and discrimination.

00:25:58 --> 00:26:04

We are better than each other only to the level of taqwa God consciousness that we have

00:26:06 --> 00:26:08

there are no other differences between us.

00:26:11 --> 00:26:16

There is there is a heavy policy from Allah subhanaw taala

00:26:18 --> 00:26:20

where allows for hunter says

00:26:21 --> 00:26:26

yeah, buddy. Oh, my sevens.

00:26:28 --> 00:26:42

Oh, you worship Me? Yeah, buddy. Oh, my heavens, in the harem to lunarlon FC. I have made injustice prohibited to myself.

00:26:44 --> 00:27:00

That is why the greatest part, Allah say divided Brahma mercy into 100 paths. One path he sent down to the dunya 99 parties kept for the era for the Day of Judgment, to divide amongst us.

00:27:02 --> 00:27:08

So justice, our laws pantum Allah says, I have made injustice prohibited upon myself

00:27:11 --> 00:27:16

to be in a coma. Herman and I have made it prohibited amongst you.

00:27:17 --> 00:27:31

fall out of them. So do not oppress one another. Do not be unjust with one another. But be solemn said philosophy to learn to read new data to three people that do ours are not rejected bellows piled on

00:27:36 --> 00:27:39

the door of the person who passed when he breaks his fast we know

00:27:42 --> 00:27:45

the law of the just leader

00:27:47 --> 00:27:50

and the law of the oppressed person.

00:27:54 --> 00:27:57

And in the Quran, there's a special sutra

00:27:58 --> 00:28:03

that talks about the law of the oppressed wife.

00:28:07 --> 00:28:07

Special suit.

00:28:10 --> 00:28:12

We allow Swan to reveal to the Navy so settle up.

00:28:14 --> 00:28:17

When the lady came to complain to him, about her husband.

00:28:19 --> 00:28:25

The Prophet didn't have an answer. He couldn't answer her couldn't given an answer. He had to wait for revelation.

00:28:26 --> 00:28:28

And Allah revealed to the novices all

00:28:34 --> 00:28:37

about the love which Allah has for his creation.

00:28:39 --> 00:28:42

And the hatred Allah has for those who praise His creation

00:28:46 --> 00:28:49

and allows for Allah promises certain things.

00:28:52 --> 00:29:01

In expression of his own justice, Allah says, what are the low levena Armando Armando solahart la muffuletta noir Joon Ali, Allah says,

00:29:03 --> 00:29:06

Allah promises those of you who believe and do good

00:29:07 --> 00:29:09

that they will have forgiveness and gender.

00:29:12 --> 00:29:22

And when we break the covenants of our last founder, like the children of Israel, and the chill and turn of his idea means of course the Jews and the Christians, or the covenant which Allah made with him,

00:29:24 --> 00:29:46

and allows Vonda specifically mentioned the apostles which were appointed by now visa to assist him in calling people to the one Allah, how they all broke the covenant with a loss Hunter. And cause the greatest covenant with the Christians broke with Allah was the covenant of La ilaha illa Allah

00:29:48 --> 00:29:51

that they had elevated

00:29:52 --> 00:29:55

the status of Nagisa to such a level

00:29:56 --> 00:29:58

that they made him into a god

00:30:03 --> 00:30:04

Like some of the Shia,

00:30:07 --> 00:30:10

I've elevated segnale to such a level

00:30:13 --> 00:30:17

that they say the revelation came to the wrong men.

00:30:19 --> 00:30:23

It should not have gone to Mohammed, it should have gone to Ali.

00:30:25 --> 00:30:39

And then Avi salatu salam warns us not to elevate him to the level that the Christians had elevated Isa Elisa to salam, for the very same reasons.

00:30:41 --> 00:30:54

That Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam despite his closeness to Allah, and despite the love which Allah had for him, is still only

00:30:55 --> 00:30:56


00:30:57 --> 00:31:05

in an Basha room with lucam you will have LA, Allah says, O Muhammad, Tao, the people of the world

00:31:07 --> 00:31:14

in nama Anna Bashar with Rico, I am a human being like you. What is the mean? means he was

00:31:16 --> 00:31:22

his father impregnated his mother, his mother was pregnant for nine months, she gave birth to him.

00:31:23 --> 00:31:27

He was a baby and he grew up and he became a man and he died.

00:31:29 --> 00:31:33

All those stages, every other human being

00:31:34 --> 00:31:35

goes through.

00:31:36 --> 00:31:39

So Prophet said do not elevate me.

00:31:40 --> 00:31:43

Because the moment we start the process of elevation,

00:31:45 --> 00:31:48

we have no idea where it will end.

00:31:56 --> 00:31:58

And we live in a world today

00:32:02 --> 00:32:05

where we have taken example,

00:32:06 --> 00:32:09

not from the Sahaba Allium Salatu, Salam.

00:32:11 --> 00:32:16

But we take example from the Jews and the Christians.

00:32:21 --> 00:32:24

In Islam, we don't have a word for St.

00:32:26 --> 00:32:27

There's no such word Islam

00:32:28 --> 00:32:29

doesn't exist.

00:32:31 --> 00:32:33

But it exists in Catholicism.

00:32:38 --> 00:32:45

The beatification of the Pope's to become saints is a process which the Catholic Church has.

00:32:48 --> 00:32:53

So Paul Paul has been beatified he's now a saint. search on the right hand of God.

00:32:55 --> 00:32:56

How Loyola

00:32:59 --> 00:33:02

and Muslims have appropriated the word saint

00:33:08 --> 00:33:10

and made it equivalent to Ali.

00:33:12 --> 00:33:12

And Olivia

00:33:15 --> 00:33:18

fast, there's no link in the relationship at all.

00:33:19 --> 00:33:24

Each and every one of you sitting in this Masjid is worldly of Allah.

00:33:27 --> 00:33:37

I don't say so. ourselves. So Allahu Allahu Allah de nom and Allah says, I'm the friend. I'm the Wali of every single Muslim.

00:33:39 --> 00:33:43

So if Allah is our Li my friend and I'm also valley of Allah.

00:33:46 --> 00:33:52

So we don't in Islamic St. houden don't have don't exist. bottle.

00:33:55 --> 00:33:59

Like spirituality don't have these things. We have Taqwa.

00:34:00 --> 00:34:02

These are all inputs

00:34:03 --> 00:34:04

to confuse

00:34:05 --> 00:34:06

our faith.

00:34:09 --> 00:34:13

These are all inputs to nullify

00:34:14 --> 00:34:17

the uniqueness of Islam

00:34:18 --> 00:34:26

which is expressed in Surah Al Imran which I gave you unique Islam doesn't follow. It is unique.

00:34:27 --> 00:34:31

absolutely unique, has to be unique. Can't be anything else.

00:34:34 --> 00:34:42

Our Salah is unique. Our fasting is unique. Our hatch is unique, although some people may catch to other places nowadays.

00:34:44 --> 00:34:53

They don't make it to market anymore. No, they go make it to India, to Cyprus, to Switzerland to ever these play, and people believe in this.

00:34:56 --> 00:34:58

This is part of our faith.

00:35:02 --> 00:35:04

So we should be very careful

00:35:05 --> 00:35:07

not to follow

00:35:08 --> 00:35:12

the road that was taken by the B'nai Israel.

00:35:14 --> 00:35:19

The Jews and the Christians. When they were commanded to do one thing,

00:35:20 --> 00:35:26

they turn the face away from Allah and decided they want to do what they want to do.

00:35:28 --> 00:35:30

And Allah what is the punishment?

00:35:32 --> 00:35:33

Allah curse them.

00:35:38 --> 00:35:41

And it is no major of historical incident

00:35:42 --> 00:35:48

that in the time of the Navy so solemn similar covenants were made

00:35:49 --> 00:36:01

by the Navy Salaam, with other people, other Muslims, I was in the hundreds people who came from Medina before the hegira. The Navy Salam took a pledge from them a covenant.

00:36:02 --> 00:36:09

And by the way, they also 12 people, just like the apostle also 12 three from the house nine from the Hasidic two tribes of Medina.

00:36:11 --> 00:36:12

And what was the covenants?

00:36:13 --> 00:36:16

What was the covenant was novices are made with him

00:36:20 --> 00:36:22

that they must do what established worship.

00:36:24 --> 00:36:25

Pay the car

00:36:29 --> 00:36:31

don't pay this as a car to your chef.

00:36:32 --> 00:36:33


00:36:34 --> 00:36:52

doesn't did the Quran doesn't say Lucia is not included. Talking about your sushi is not included in the eight categories, which is mentioned in the Quran. In na Masada Cotterill for Korra. Your Misaki. While Amina Allah Allah, Allah.

00:36:55 --> 00:37:03

Allah, Allah gives eight people do you must give your Sokka somebody said to me the other day, his chair said to him, soccer must come to him.

00:37:06 --> 00:37:08

He will redistribute it.

00:37:09 --> 00:37:18

Because he can see beyond what you can see as to what people's needs are love for God to petition them in the Quran.

00:37:21 --> 00:37:30

The Prophet forgot to tell us that in the year 2013, in Cape Town, people will have spiritual leaders

00:37:31 --> 00:37:36

who will demand the followers to give the car to them for redistribution.

00:37:38 --> 00:37:39

These are all

00:37:41 --> 00:37:47

the deviations that come from man made ideas.

00:37:48 --> 00:37:50

And man made spirituality.

00:37:56 --> 00:37:57

alien to Islam.

00:37:58 --> 00:38:11

Why is it alien to Islam? alien to Islam because it was not commanded by Allah and His messenger. Don't because I say so. Because I don't like it or because I'm biased. I'm prejudice. It's got nothing to do with me.

00:38:14 --> 00:38:17

I'm just telling you, what you didn't is.

00:38:18 --> 00:38:31

And if you can bring evidence to me that yes, you can do this and do that. That Yes, spirituality does exist in Islam. written evidence. Yes, we have signs in Islam Bring me the evidence.

00:38:32 --> 00:38:38

Yes, you must give whatever you have in zatara to you sufficient, make me the evidence.

00:38:42 --> 00:38:46

But what is the evidence? You know what the evidence is? He doesn't understand

00:38:51 --> 00:38:55

that he's talking to me doesn't understand. Talk to me about Quran and Sunnah.

00:38:59 --> 00:39:07

So alswamitra has made these covenants with us. Believe in my messengers, support my messages.

00:39:08 --> 00:39:09

Lane to Allah kindly loan.

00:39:12 --> 00:39:21

Allah says, I will remit your sins, I will forgive your sins are bringing you into the gardens and in these which rivers flow. These are challenges My dear brothers and sisters.

00:39:22 --> 00:39:25

To be true to a covenant with Allah is not easy.

00:39:26 --> 00:39:27

Not easy.

00:39:28 --> 00:39:30

Not in the time in which we live.

00:39:31 --> 00:39:40

We live in the rough times we live in times turbulent seas, you can pull from this side from that side. The dounia pulls you one side.

00:39:42 --> 00:39:48

The wife is on the other side journalism the other side your family's in the middle your brothers and sisters on the other side. So patola

00:39:50 --> 00:39:59

that another reward is so great. So remember Surah Al e Imran speaks about these covenants which allows mahana tala

00:40:00 --> 00:40:02

Made with us as Muslims

00:40:05 --> 00:40:07

have already gone to heaven and kaabil

00:40:12 --> 00:40:15

and what is the greatest covenant which are Labate with us?

00:40:17 --> 00:40:22

The greatest covenant which allows for honors made with us is the covenant of love.

00:40:25 --> 00:40:25

What is love?

00:40:27 --> 00:40:34

If you have love on the one side and you have an equal sign next to love, then what is love equals Islam?

00:40:36 --> 00:40:40

Love equals Islam love equals

00:40:42 --> 00:40:45

your commitment to Islam as a Muslim

00:40:48 --> 00:40:51

Why is it because our laws were how to tala

00:40:52 --> 00:40:57

when talking about the greatest crime that a Muslim can commit which is what

00:40:59 --> 00:41:07

what is the greatest senator Muslim can commit? The greatest sin that a Muslim can commit is to leave his Deen

00:41:10 --> 00:41:17

or to leave part of his Deen maybe mixer robber isn't by Sokka maybe it gives charity but but it doesn't make Salah

00:41:19 --> 00:41:27

maybe he does everything but he doesn't fast. These are all rejection of the deal. But let's talk about the big one. The lt dad.

00:41:29 --> 00:41:45

People becoming more tired leaving the deen of Allah. Luca Allah talks about it. Allah says oh you believe you're Latina Aman monnier tedman Command D ye who renegades who leaves the deen of Islam?

00:41:47 --> 00:41:54

What is p Allah say to him, Allah say to him, I want to put you in the deepest *. Well straight out on top of you.

00:41:56 --> 00:42:02

allows one that says I will bring up people whom he loves and who love him.

00:42:04 --> 00:42:06

So what is the love of Allah?

00:42:07 --> 00:42:09

Because many people talk about the love of Allah.

00:42:12 --> 00:42:14

Do they ask people why do you do this?

00:42:18 --> 00:42:18

I love Allah.

00:42:21 --> 00:42:29

So, Allah, Allah says, You leave my Dean you leaving the love, which I have for you.

00:42:30 --> 00:42:33

You rejecting the love which I have for you.

00:42:39 --> 00:42:54

And allows Wagner says he will bring a nation or a people or a person who will love him and he will love will be humbled towards other believers, stern towards the disbelievers striving in the way of Allah making Jihad

00:42:55 --> 00:42:57

and fearing not the blame of any blamer

00:43:05 --> 00:43:14

What does it mean? It means that he speaks the truth and doesn't care what people say.

00:43:18 --> 00:43:20

Because Mohammed Salim said,

00:43:21 --> 00:43:25

Only half follow Connemara, speak the truth, even if it is better.

00:43:27 --> 00:43:29

Now visa Salam said,

00:43:30 --> 00:43:33

What is pride? pride is

00:43:34 --> 00:43:37

to reject the truth when you hear it

00:43:38 --> 00:43:40

and to look down upon other people.

00:43:42 --> 00:43:43

Botha rock

00:43:49 --> 00:43:51

so one can understand.

00:43:52 --> 00:43:55

I'm talking to you in looking at all your faces.

00:43:57 --> 00:44:04

And I'm thinking to myself, I picture the Nabi sallallahu wasallam. Standing

00:44:07 --> 00:44:09

on Mount suffi think

00:44:11 --> 00:44:13

his first public speech,

00:44:14 --> 00:44:18

his first public speech he stood on lands of no matter where you go for

00:44:22 --> 00:44:25

an Aboriginal. Now Abu lahab was there

00:44:27 --> 00:44:32

and he gave it simple message. This is some sent to the Quraysh

00:44:33 --> 00:44:35

I'm the Messenger of Allah.

00:44:36 --> 00:44:38

You should worship Allah.

00:44:39 --> 00:44:50

Don't turn away from Allah. don't worship these idols. They stones they did. They can't help you. They can't harm you, nor can they do good to you.

00:44:51 --> 00:44:58

I can almost imagine how those idol worshippers must have looked at him and said

00:44:59 --> 00:44:59


00:45:00 --> 00:45:00


00:45:02 --> 00:45:14

what is this man doing? Does he think that he can come up against the might of people like Abu Jaan Abdullah and destroy this faith which we had for 1000s of years.

00:45:17 --> 00:45:23

And I can imagine the feeling that he must have had standing there alone, challenging his people.

00:45:25 --> 00:45:29

It wasn't so much a challenge of faith as a challenge of intellect.

00:45:32 --> 00:45:42

A challenge of the mind, a challenge of saying to them, exercise, the greatest gift which I'll let given to you the mind.

00:45:46 --> 00:45:56

Read your Koran with your mind. Look at the life of Muhammad Hassan with your mind, not your traditional upbringing and your culture and your habits.

00:46:02 --> 00:46:05

But look at the soul which Allah given to the life

00:46:08 --> 00:46:12

so the challenge my dear brothers and I can appreciate your challenge.

00:46:13 --> 00:46:20

I mean, we live in a world today we have we don't know whether what we eating is hollow. Nevermind the stamps of way of putting a stamp on the food.

00:46:22 --> 00:46:29

I'm at the point now where I can't eat anything that I fear to eat anything which has a stamp on around the things without steps.

00:46:35 --> 00:46:38

But it's not a joke. It's very serious. I feel that

00:46:40 --> 00:46:43

you know, sometimes you think what have I eaten a god?

00:46:46 --> 00:46:48

If we can't even look after the beef

00:46:51 --> 00:46:52

and the mutton?

00:46:54 --> 00:47:01

What about all the other stuff that donkey and the horse? And how do we control that as a community?

00:47:04 --> 00:47:11

But I think it's a wake up call for us as Muslims is not a wake up call for the organizations that gives us certificates. They will never wake up.

00:47:15 --> 00:47:16

It's a wake up call for me in you.

00:47:18 --> 00:47:20

What is the wake up call? eat at home?

00:47:25 --> 00:47:26

By your things.

00:47:28 --> 00:47:32

eat at home. I think that's the wake up call for us a lot stronger. It's giving us admission.

00:47:36 --> 00:47:37

That is your tradition.

00:47:38 --> 00:47:40

That is a good tradition.

00:47:43 --> 00:47:44

You knew what you ate today.

00:47:47 --> 00:47:49

You go to any restaurant anywhere you go.

00:47:50 --> 00:48:04

You don't know period. You don't know? Because you can't question everything I'm people give you a glass of water means a glass of water. But I'm just saying and especially things that they manufacture beyond

00:48:06 --> 00:48:11

the meat that you can see in a plate. If they start mincing stuff the universe no

00:48:12 --> 00:48:12

can eat.

00:48:14 --> 00:48:19

like McDonald's and these places, once they start making patties, you're in danger

00:48:20 --> 00:48:22

in very deep, deep trouble.

00:48:24 --> 00:48:26

Because you don't know the answer of where it comes from.

00:48:27 --> 00:48:28


00:48:29 --> 00:48:36

they say last year's or every important 400,000 tonnes of chicken from Brazil,

00:48:42 --> 00:48:43

from Brazil,

00:48:45 --> 00:48:49

who is there in Brazil and all the chickens coming through is got halaal stems on it

00:48:51 --> 00:48:52

from Brazil.

00:48:54 --> 00:49:04

I don't know of any Muslim organization halaal certification organization from South Africa with an office in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is

00:49:05 --> 00:49:07

that Argentina is a prison.

00:49:08 --> 00:49:09

So I'm saying that

00:49:11 --> 00:49:12

we must be careful

00:49:13 --> 00:49:16

that message is Be very careful.

00:49:18 --> 00:49:19

be extremely careful what you eat.

00:49:27 --> 00:49:33

Me time is up. Next week we will continue with talking about the metaphor

00:49:34 --> 00:49:39

or the theme of sort of Allah Emraan and other Emraan

00:49:40 --> 00:49:49

deals as you will hear next week, the only surah in the Quran that encompasses and embraces all the objectives of the Sharia Walter Adams salaam aleikum wa
