for those who
have taught me the attending this particular Juma we are
presently busy with
the sewer of the Quran, the chapters of the Quran
and it is our intention
the themes of the Quran
in such a way that we understand the Quran to be an uninterrupted Book of Revelation
that the sewer of the Quran the chapters of the Quran, do not stand alone
but are connected to each other in its intention in its theme in its commandment. And that allows for Han Allah tala tells us
the importance of certain fundamentals
that every individual family and nation must have in order to be successful.
Today inshallah we will continue and today we are on the seventh Surah Surah two are off
solara opens with a virtual law partner This is a live learn mean thought keytab Ooh, la kefalonia confuse sadhika harridge mean who allows progresses
to the Navy so a lot harder sanlam keytab wound?
Carbon Of course refers to the book of a loss of the Quran. What about the Quran? own Zilla alayka follow
along Spangler says Mohamed Salah.
The Quran is being revealed to you.
So do not feel any unease.
Do not feel any difficulty
on account of the fact that you must go out and warn people of the message of the
end and secondly allows congresses and teach the believers in that you must be the one to teach the believers secondly, Allah Spangler says
it who all men follow the revelation given unto you from your Lord Allah and follow not as friends or protectors earlier
than allows panatela. Now allows pongola says
little Do you remember the admonitions of the
other words, Muslims people forget very quickly. And therefore the duty of those who give the see half of those who make dour of those who teach is to continuously remind the Muslims of the admonitions of the Quran, the junctions of the Quran and of course the love that allows for Allah has for the Muslims. Now
so rattle are off deals. The verse which I quoted the opening verse of surah to olara deals as you could deal with the Quran.
But before we
begin to understand what the first verse means, we just go back and look at the themes of the previous surah of the Quran. First look at sort of Baccarat we say two or two nakara talks about St. Clair
talks about the responsibility which allows the handle is placed upon men and more permanently and directly upon the shoulders of the Muslims
to be in charge of the world to manage the world.
We say that Surah Baqarah gives us the program to be CEOs of the world.
Those people who manage the world keep it intact look after the environment, the cost of the animals the seeds, look up look after humankind. These responsibilities are placed upon the shoulders of Muslims in Surat Al Baqarah has a different theme and a different objective.
In the Jain and because it's sort of Bukhara we read a lot stronger tells us in the javelins without the Khalifa were placed in the world is our lowest place in the world, a Khalifa a belligerent a representative a manager.
So it is a suit of management of the world.
Then comes Ali amraam, early amaran, Allah subhanaw taala transfers what is required to be a manager
required to be a manager of the world.
East West Saba,
East where firmness in truth.
What does it mean? It means never to shirk your responsibility towards the truth.
And we have to remember my dear brothers,
it is not man that makes truth great. We don't make truth great. We do not make the Quran great. It is the truth that makes men great.
The truth makes us who we are. We don't make the truth what it is.
The hakonsen allows founder and it is that half which is made us who we are.
And therefore, first requirement of a manager He must be able to be truthful to himself and that which he manages Thirdly, Sora to Nisa, the suit of women, the suit of women Allah subhanaw taala tells us that they can be no management I know truth without justice.
And the point of departure for justice as given in the name of the Surah Nisa means first of all justice towards
those who allows for hundreds created as part of our responsibility women, the children.
We accept responsibility to look after women and after.
And when the Quran speaks about these
responsibilities which we have my dear brothers and sisters, the Quran does not make a distinction in terms of race or creed or religion or color.
Muslims are responsible, always for everybody. For the two unfortunately,
I want to give you an example.
In criminal law in Islam, now,
if your house gets broken into,
and you tell me that somebody broke into your house, I can't go to the police station and lay a charge or make a case. The policeman said, well, who are you you don't live to me? What connection do you have?
If I see a crime being committed,
for example, I see a woman being abused,
And I go and I tell the police, you know, I saw this woman being violated.
And the police will say fine.
Where is the woman that was violated? If she doesn't come and lay a case for lay a charge? No charge.
But in an Islamic Society,
the position is entirely different.
that any person can lay a charge, even if the crime was not committed against you.
For example, if for men to a woman being violated,
it is their responsibility report that crime to the hacking.
You can't say well, you can't walk away and ignore it. You see a burglary,
you must latch on to responsibility.
We are our brother's keeper in so many words without bias as to race or creed or color, sexual justice. So first, where is the class responsibility? Secondly, we have
the subject being very firm on the truth. Thirdly, Justice Sotomayor ADA, fulfill your obligations. They can be no justice. They came in a talk of a society or a community or a nation without the fulfillment of obligations and last week's
So at last we explained Allah subhanaw taala brings together the above and tells us that all that must be closed into heed.
That all that is worthless unless it is directed by a belief in one creator one sustainer alone unseen, create and sustain Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And we say that in Surah Lara allows kwantlen mentioned the heat 47 times 30% of last week so Rasul Allah de to the question have to read, what is the heat and we explained, we save the two he
is not to ascribe anything to allow subhanho wa Taala
which may have the quality of Allah subhanaw taala like forgiveness, for example, in the bigger scheme of things, so for us to give our brother, but in the bigger scheme of things, in terms of sins and men commits, nobody can forgive except a loss Hunter, because if you had to bribe him was asking for forgiveness. But you can't turn towards some something else for forgiveness. Like in other religions, people turn to prophets or saints or whatever it may be. In Islam. We say Allah is a fortune.
So the Hayden is the theme of the theme of the surah, which we are busy with at the Boma several are off, which is the seven suit of the Quran in the first verse.
first verse relates to the Quran.
Allah talks about the revelation, the book,
then allow sangala says oh Mohammed salam, we didn't send you this book, so you may put it on the shelf.
We send you this book in order for you first
as an admonition
to the believers
and as a way to Allah subhanaw taala for the unbelievers in disbelievers.
The other one is allowed to underline this verse talks about those who deny or reject the revelation completely.
According nabasa della clan,
Abdullah nobis he talks about the first letters that are used, and we've learned him on Alif Lam Meem salt. And Abdullah nabba says he's interpretation of these literacies he says these letters are abbreviations for the words on a law alum facility. He says these letters of course, Abdullah nobis was the cousin of the Nabi sallallahu Sallam haven't been given the instruction by the Navy to suddenly drop him to say that he will have the capacity to be able to interpret the Quran.
And what does it mean?
It means Allah He says, the latest mean I am a law.
I know and I explain. So alswamitra is Allah. He is the knower and he is the explainer
and allows for hunger uses the word in this first surah in this first verse
uses the word hemorrhage or distress.
Allah pharma makes the profit aware of the fact that Omaha masala
we have not commanded you to publicly declare this message because this was at the time of the height of the struggle. And we know what struggle means. We should know those of us who were in the struggle against apartheid know where the struggle means that means a lot of the stress and a lot of stress
and allows father that makes him aware that the reaction to your admonition and to the bringing of the Quran will be negative reception you will have a completely negative reception the reception from the coloration others to this message.
you are called upon Mohammed or Laura Salaam to do something else first to admonish to teach but most of all, to ask the courageous other peoples to abandon the pagan practices and traditions regardless of the origins, regardless of where it come from. If it was pre Islam, pre Islamic
traditions and practices, except that which was
changed, modified, and thought are lost on all other pagan traditions and pagan practices. It was the duty of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
to get together everything.
Not just to preach against him but to get rid of them. Allows Hamlet says, contemplate on matino College ugliness. You are the best of people
amongst mankind amongst all the nations of man, almost enjoy the best of people. Why Allah these two qualifications? That Marina Bill maruf Watanabe?
suddenly an absolutely for two reasons and two reasons alone Are you the best. If these are taken away out of the equation, then we know the best people anymore. Allah says you're the best of people's because you order the good and you forbid the evil.
Now today, of course, we live in a different society, in a different age, in a different world.
We live in a world where many people are ashamed or shy, to speak the truth,
even parents to their children.
In fact, we have reached the stage where the commandment of God is curtailed rather than encouraged to look at the school to educational system, for example, teachers are told not to beat the children, not to shout at the children not to do X, Y and Zed. Parents even cannot rectify the child anymore with a cadence. So we live in a world where
as Allah says, as the as the verse says,
there will be
a great negative reception to the commands of Allah subhanaw taala.
And Allah tells us
that the traditions and practices
which people have
and is not in conformity with the Quran and Sunnah, they are valueless, they have no value when Allah says in verse 53, of surah, Al are off while acaba de Nikita been for So now Allah l min Buddha, moto moon, allows formula says And surely we have brought them a book.
Allah says we have sent down a book
which we have expanded with knowledge, I was the book is based on animal knowledge, a guidance and a mercy for people who believe. So this is the duty of the what is the Quran and genre it has knowledge, it has food or guidance, and it has mercy
and is the mercy for those who believe.
So we extract our traditions and our culture,
from the traditions and culture,
which is underwritten by the principles of the Quran, and which has been given to us by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
I was asked the other night, the other evening, somebody phoned and said there's a program on the TV program television, I should watch this particular program.
I caught maybe the last 15 minutes of the program.
My understanding of the program was it was a program about music.
And the program was narrated by a cleric, Muslim cleric of Cape Town, he was in the background talking about the program.
And the program. Basically at three elements, there were three things to this program.
And I speak about this because
this is my duty, I don't have a choice.
I don't have a choice. I have to express and tell you
what the Sheree essays about whatever happens in the community.
See elements of this program. The first was that it is a program
where there's a group of men making the case
with a musical instrument.
Now I've got nothing against music
So don't say, Well, you know, what about him, he listens to his music. That was the first thing
with musical instruments. The second was that
it was about the fact that this Deacon was part of the culture of Islam.
Maybe we could argue this way that
the third was that this culture of Vicar.
Other people also have it.
An example that was given on this TV program was the sun people, the whole sun, backward, nothing is a poison. They've got some poison blooding with it likely. Because people came from Indonesia without the wife. So obviously, they had to find wives here. So I'm sure that
we have a lot of boys and family amongst us.
But now we look at the program.
What is the what is the person who narrated this Muslim cleric from Cape Town who narrated who gave the narration said that the deen of Islam survived in Cape Town because of music.
Its first statement he makes
Maybe either. Maybe in his experience, it was a lot of music in his life, you know, and it kept him alive and kept the spirits you know, gave them the man attack whatever music may do to people. So that's his personal experience. He said.
Then he quoted the verse of the Quran.
We are allowed sangala says,
I've created you male and female,
which are not controlled by Baba Illallah Tara who have made you into tribes and nations,
that you may learn one, the demand to stand one another, get to know one another.
So who are these people that we will that that he says the four are the first in the program.
These were sun women.
completely naked, from the navel upwards.
That's it. Next is all the babies out there in the Kuru in the Kalahari.
There is a culture that women don't cover their terms.
These women were dancing and singing.
So the camera was between men sitting I think it was in a mosque, look like a mosque, saying Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah with a musical instrument, then the camera, then there would be a change of picture. Most of you probably lots of you have seen it. I wouldn't have known about the production of this president from then you have a change of picture. And these women come up completely naked, up to the waist, dancing and making some seeing their own.
And the impression that this clinic
was giving to the nation of South Africans, was that
Islam was going to problem with it is like us. We sit in a monster Meg, and Meg Meeker, and these are women half naked, they do their thing, and we are both cultures. And we're both expressing our love for God.
Now again, as I say,
we have nothing against I have nothing against music.
I have nothing against boys and women in living in their own culture. But I have a massive problem. If you want to combine that kind of tradition, with the purity that Islam came with.
After all, what is Vicar?
We normally refer to Vicar as Victrola the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. How is it possible
that we can remember allows for having done in the state of nakedness, even if there is a God? This is totally contrived Islam came and preached,
isn't it our duty to go out there and to convert these people the sermon to make them Muslim attempt to cover up the province of Alberta?
I believe when I look at what we are doing in our community today
But because of the silence of the AMA, particularly
the Muslim community, and because of the
and, and the fact that we ignore what is happening in our society, things that become
I think things are getting out of hand.
We're moving further and further away from
the pure and pristine.
We're moving further and further away from the tsunami.
We see our people taking chances which have never been taken before.
musical instrument in msgid.
Never before this would have been condemned.
There would have been outcry against such a thing.
Even though it may be done in other countries, who are very conservative community,
we have another situation
we will now have a tune right inside excellent. We first had them only on the fringes of the ocean.
We Muslims affine millions of lines to build this tomb.
completely contrary to the instructions of Mohammed Salah lorrison.
We now have a further situation where people are celebrating or going to have a celebration
to do or the unveiling or something to the effect of this particular
never happened in the history of Cape Town.
So if somebody says, traditional say what tradition from where does it come from?
When was that celebrated?
Same with moelleux.
We've never had a public celebration
of the birth of the prophets of Allah,
never who is done in the sanctity of the mosque
that we've remained
in, as I said, on Mount night, in 2016.
Those who have organized this mess
in honor of the birthday of Muhammad, Allah, Allah
will have a problem.
Because in 2016,
Christmas Day, and Memorial Day will be on the same day.
And it'll be a holiday.
So we can't say, Well, you know, we're not going to have it on that day, because it's a holiday. It's not a holiday.
So what are you going to tell the people what are you going to tell the Christians in Greenpoint? Who's going to come around and say, What are you people doing celebrating the birth of your prophet? For we also celebrating the birthday?
of what you call our Prophet Jesus? So we have two birthdays of two prophets on the same day.
Who are we following?
are they following us? Are we following them?
How do you explain this to your children?
You know why we end this dilemma?
Because we have become followers of others. We are supposed to be the masters and the leaders of humanity.
We bow down to every new innovation that comes into the into society, every new innovation
and we say that we are tolerant
we've lost the ascendancy which Islam always had.
We have compromised the truth of Islam.
That sentence acceptance of Islam, the beauty of Islam.
In denying the law Islam, we've compromised.
The Deen by allows for Hungary's Islam.
It needs no additions or subtractions. To remain integral always remain the greatest face
no matter what truth shall always prevail in every culture.
Every tradition, every society,
that Maxim is a two Maxim, that the truth must prevail.
I believe that Islam is the truth, it will prevail.
It must prevail.
So when we then
have the unveiling of tombs and spend millions when people are starving on the burning of tombs and the maintenance of tools,
then we've gone back to the title of Jay Z.
And I fear for that happen in the future.
theories are off.
Allows Muhammad Allah gives the examples of the struggles of, of Nabhi, new Nabil who would not be low libido I have decided from the 64 to 88
allows for Hamilton and brings into focus
the struggles of the greatest men
and the struggles of the greatest men was what
in what is in capsulated, what verse
for us, would tell us? What was the struggle of the MDR Halim salatu salam,
the struggle of the MBR is or to Salam
is the call of Gambia. In what is the call of the Gambia your home?
Oh my people,
Abdullah Malik coming.
Oh, my people, worship Allah, there is none other to worship. And brothers doesn't only mean sujood and recuerde I burdah means obedience in its totality. Trust in its totality,
without moving out of your attention to anything in anyone else in your data.
And I'll also
to the new Allison.
Allison was the prophet who came after nadie Adamonis about 1000 years after they added Melissa to Salah.
And we know what happened to the people who have no
one of the worst calamities that Allah sent to the world. Water
the worst kind of depth to drown our drown the people of know Allah drown the whole world
because of the anger against the people of New
what was the anger against the people of New? Why was this great Divine Anger
against the people of Ave alysus.
And we no no have breached any doubt or Komi Leyland when he says in the Quran Allah, I call my people day and night.
But the only increase I get from them is that they run away from me killed listen to
between the audible Islam and I don't know why they didn't have enough because the people knew at the time.
They were very pious people living amongst them.
And the names are mentioned in the Holy Quran.
What does wah
wah wah, wah. Some of these were some of the very pious people.
Today we call them in our language.
friends of Allah
moutoku people are taqwa.
These people died
shaitan went to the people and said, you know these people were great people, they have now died.
But we must keep some remembrance of these people. You can't just let him go let them we must remember these great pious people
Some of them both tombs over the graves of others to make statues of them.
Say towards it, okay, fine. But I think you should go for that. You should make paintings of them and hang it in each home so that every home will have a photograph of these pious people in their homes to remind them
The piety of these people,
then shaitan came out to the edges, tombs and statues, and shaitan said,
in order for you to get some of the
in inverted commas,
what we might call Baraka of these great people
who should worship them?
elevated the status respected them visited them, now you should worship them to get some of this spirituality.
So eventually, from a point of remembrance of great people came the worship of the green
and allow farmers tend to be new under those circumstances.
And when I look at ourselves, it's not very different, what is happening today
at all, in fact, today going to many booster bombs, and you'll see a photograph of the pier hanging the same as a diamond of a new Hi Lisa.
And what happened,
he made two out let me know
calling them to our last song for years and years,
900 years, he said,
After 900 is only 80 people followed him, he asked Allah to destroy all the capital of the
except those few people.
So that is an example
of starting at a particular point. And not knowing where you can the end of
that is why in the fifth, there is a
maximum to be followed by scholars.
The maximum is called sub Daria, or Dara, plural or singular, what does it mean? scholars
have a maxim which says
that they should close the door to anything which they feel may eventually lead to wrong,
even if you don't know.
But if there are four sides, and the fourth side tells them that maybe eventually this kind of practice will lead
to open share, then it is the duty to close the door.
As he said,
that which leads to prohibition is in itself a prohibition.
If it may lead to something which is prohibited, the scholars must close the door that may reach to that
and I'm afraid what is happening now this call is opening all the doors
not only here, but many other places.
So so the Laura inside Buhari,
which of course, as I told him, has been accepted each man
commonly by the Muslims to be the most authentic after the Quran in it, on Salah, no Habiba. We're both part of the delegation and the prophets of Salaam sent to me personally.
And when they came back on musalman horiba
they told the Prophet about a church called Maria
in Abyssinia they describe the church to the Prophet never seen the church before probably didn't know that because look like for our civil described me what is a church look like? So there is God was just called by the name of Maria. They describe its beauty, which is very beautiful.
And they describe the pictures inside the
church is filled with with icons.
Angels in Jesus interpret the song
when they completely fully describe the inside of the church.
prophets of Salaam responded and he said
those are people who prophesy who bow places of worship on the grave of everyday men
who was righteous
Christians as a habit
We know this
that they know tombs of every person. The thing was,
in fact, not only that the Christians as I said last week,
they have a process
by which they canonize people who become saints later
like Paul Paul was vilified after his death, he became a saint St. Paul.
That's a Christian process, a non Muslim process that leads to sainthood.
We don't have that process. No, do I have sense we don't have a word in Arabic for saying
don't have doesn't exist.
So somebody talks about the saints, we don't have sense.
We have only have a loss. We have cocoon.
And who are the earlier
allows, says and I quoted feud verse, first verse of surah.
Surah, we busy with Allah saundra says, Well, I
mean, dooney Alia, Allah says, and do not follow other than Allah as your protector, as your support as your authority, and as your friend.
And alswamitra says, a law who will lead you levena Aminu. Allah says, Allah is the world leader of those who believe.
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah.
the Friends of a law
on them will be no fear
and they will not grieve. Who are they?
Who are they? Allah says who they are. And levena Manu, what can we
every single person who believed in Allah, and every single Muslim who has is a word of Allah.
Allah in Odia, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Vina, Allah doesn't leave things for your imagination.
So every single Muslim who believes
and as taqwa is conscious of a loss after a friend of Allah,
Allahu Allah determined and the friend of those who believe.
people are in the ranks as the martyrs who are above the believers, the prophets while above the believers.
And ultimately, my dear brothers and sisters,
it is only Allah who knows his friends, his true friends, nobody else knows.
There is no revelation or book
or list of people that have been given to the Navy sossalamander say, these are going to be the Friends of our laws, but doesn't exist.
So it is important for us to understand to heed
important for us to understand the struggle of the ambia What was the struggle?
The struggle was to cleanse the faith of everything, which is not required for Jana.
And so that
speaks about the people of gender and the people of now.
So rock talks about ouabain oma hijab and Wallah Rafi gianyar una
canlan vizima allows volunteers,
the doctors and the prophets will be on a station on elevated station and they will look down and the people of Ghana and the people of Germany
and the people of Ghana will say to the people of Ghana,
what we've been given, Allah has been true to his promise to us.
And they will say to the people of the fire, have you got what Allah promised to
Because ultimately there's only two places to go to gender.
Those who are above the law will go to China. And remember, my dear brothers and sisters,
please no one who can put you in jail except the law.
has the authority
or the power
to walk through the door of Paradise except alongside with that
isn't again our bounden duty and responsibility
to be absolutely true to our Lord alone
isn't it in our bond and responsibility to love him and love his profit above everything else.
And the expression of that love
is not what comes out of the mouth. The expression of the love is to follow the junctions of the Quran and to follow the student of haematomas.
So May Allah give us in Sharla
and our leaders now scholars,
Zilla set said the old music and fame has seen it.
That's what we need. today. We need scholars, young people who grow up
to have vision to be able to see beyond what is now
and the effects of what we're doing now what the defects will be in the future.
The part that's part of a manager's job manager was able to project profits and losses etc.
And so the leaders have the money to do that.
They need to ask themselves with door should be closed and which door should be open
with doors will lead to salvation and which doors will lead to petition.
And the keys of the doors of salvation are the keys which were handed to Mohammed solos.
there are only five keys
he man Salah
these are the five keys from my father's keys that he gave me. Not from my grandfather or his grandfather. This is a key is given to Mohamed Salah, which he handed to the oma
these are the keys of paradise. We mentioned one particular key, the Salah.
And so we asked a lot stronger to guide us
to guide our children to protect us
and to make this Deen
the leader in everything and not the following anything Walter Allah Salaam Alaikum
