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

boundary line starting in one movie on a talk Hello Ollie. When I already learned him in Cerulean fusina

00:00:09--> 00:00:14

Marina, Maya de la, la la la, la la de la,

00:00:37--> 00:00:42

We continue with our series of lectures on the Quran

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

and today inshallah we will continue to speak will start to speak about Surah Al and fall

00:00:51--> 00:00:53

which is the eighth surah in the Holy Quran.

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

So we have now done eight or eight of the chapters of the Hurrah

00:01:06--> 00:01:11

and the reason that I've chosen this series of lectures

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

is because I feel that

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

sometimes there is a disconnect

00:01:23--> 00:01:24

between us and the Quran.

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

Sometimes I get the impression which is my personal impression

00:01:34--> 00:01:36

is the Quran is become a book

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

that we read for Baraka.

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

The Quran has become a book that we read

00:01:45--> 00:01:46

at competitions.

00:01:50--> 00:01:54

The Quran has become a book that we memorize for the sake of memorization,

00:02:03--> 00:02:06

which is of course not the case in the time of the Nabi sallallahu Sallam

00:02:08--> 00:02:11

know the time of the Sahaba Allium Salatu. Salam.

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

We know that the Sahaba Allah salatu salam

00:02:19--> 00:02:25

ala kalon home wa read the Koran, lit and fees

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

play Selita Bartok

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

that the Sahaba read the Koran lit and fees

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

in order to implement the Torah.

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

They read the Quran in order

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

to understand

00:02:47--> 00:02:48

who is Allah?

00:02:51--> 00:02:55

And what is the connection between allows Mahabharata and men?

00:02:58--> 00:02:59

They also

00:03:01--> 00:03:04

check change the world with the poor.

00:03:08--> 00:03:11

After the demise of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

does the harbor lift Medina

00:03:16--> 00:03:21

with the Koran. And that's all they had to put on and the experiences were gonna be so awesome.

00:03:22--> 00:03:29

And they changed the world was that for today, we want to change the world without the euro.

00:03:31--> 00:03:41

And because we want to change the world, without the Euro, we cannot change the world. We have failed to change ourselves and we have failed to change the world.

00:03:43--> 00:03:46

Because we have programs upon programs upon programs

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

which are taught to us outside the euro.

00:03:57--> 00:03:58

So this series of lectures,

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

hopefully inshallah will try

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

and break down the barrier that we have between us. And

00:04:11--> 00:04:15

when I say there's a barrier between us in Iran, I mean,

00:04:16--> 00:04:19

that is also in a barrier between us and Allah.

00:04:21--> 00:04:25

Because we cannot know Allah and this we read and understand the Quran

00:04:28--> 00:04:31

and in my humble opinion,

00:04:34--> 00:04:36

our disconnect with the Quran

00:04:38--> 00:04:41

is the reason that we connect with other than the Quran.

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

We find connection with things

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

outside of the Quran

00:04:53--> 00:04:58

and when we connect with things outside of the Koran shaytaan den takes advantage of us

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

The Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

tells us, he says,

00:05:13--> 00:05:16

say akun Phaeton. kathira.

00:05:18--> 00:05:19

Musa Salam said,

00:05:21--> 00:05:23

As time goes by

00:05:24--> 00:05:27

Allah subhanaw taala will send many tests

00:05:29--> 00:05:30

to the Muslims

00:05:34--> 00:05:37

and the Sahaba ours to the reality set to Salam.

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

Yara Salalah ma Maharaj minha.

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

They say, Dr. rasulillah

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

what is the solution?

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

How do we deal

00:05:54--> 00:05:57

with a taste which Allah is going to

00:05:58--> 00:06:00

place in front of us.

00:06:01--> 00:06:04

And the Prophet replied. And

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

he said in one word,

00:06:10--> 00:06:12

that the way to deal

00:06:13--> 00:06:21

with tests which allows for hunter will certainly place upon every single individual of this oma will be the clock.

00:06:25--> 00:06:27

So it's important for us

00:06:31--> 00:06:32

to understand

00:06:34--> 00:06:35

our relationship

00:06:36--> 00:06:42

with Allah will be zero, until we have a relationship with a Pura.

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

In previous religions,

00:06:55--> 00:07:00

and particularly the religions of the of Judaism and Christianity.

00:07:06--> 00:07:11

They had live, they connect with Allah to such an extent

00:07:13--> 00:07:17

that they replaced him with something called a sun, click replacement,

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

and the Holy Ghost

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

so they save it the connection with Allah

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

with a cold God.

00:07:30--> 00:07:34

And this, my dear brothers did not happen overnight.

00:07:40--> 00:07:45

Constantine the Great, one of the Roman emperors,

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

who because of political reasons,

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

and adopted Christianity,

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

as the fate of the Roman Empire, and about

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

the third century after they release allyssa, to Salah, which meaning 300 years after

00:08:07--> 00:08:09

maybe Raisa, left this world.

00:08:13--> 00:08:18

And what he did was up to that point up to 300 years after the release Elisa to Salah.

00:08:21--> 00:08:26

The people of the Middle East, believe that nerissa was a prophet.

00:08:29--> 00:08:31

They believe that you were sent by God by laws.

00:08:34--> 00:08:47

And in the 325, this Constantine, Roman Emperor, called a gathering of all the bishops of the church at the time, the Catholic Church

00:08:50--> 00:08:54

discuss the question of Nabila, Lisa, Lisa, to salah

00:08:56--> 00:09:08

and decided that From then onwards, the foundation of Christianity will be that Isa will become the Son of God by the law, they will be the father and they will be the Holy Ghost.

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

This new ideology

00:09:15--> 00:09:20

Was that something which Constantine took out from the clouds and brought down to you know,

00:09:21--> 00:09:26

the sonship of Isa, the father, ship of God,

00:09:28--> 00:09:34

and the Holy Spirit. These were things which will vary within the tradition of the Roman Empire.

00:09:36--> 00:09:43

The Romans also worshipped a son was the son of God before Christianity.

00:09:47--> 00:09:48

In fact, Sunday.

00:09:50--> 00:09:54

The day of Christianity that they celebrate was the day of the Jews which was Saturday.

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

But because Constantine and the Romans pagan Romans a day celebration

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

On a Sunday because they worship a sun god.

00:10:03--> 00:10:12

Constantine, Mary said no when we Christians are not going to pray them on a Saturday, we know that a prayer on a Sunday, so all the pagan traditions

00:10:13--> 00:10:14

became law.

00:10:24--> 00:10:26

And the pagan traditions

00:10:27--> 00:10:30

also had a particular attitude towards women.

00:10:33--> 00:10:41

The Romans believed that women didn't have a soul, though, like dogs and cats, they will just become dust. And that'll be it.

00:10:43--> 00:10:47

When Constantine declared Christianity to be

00:10:49--> 00:10:52

based on the traditions and customs, having left

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

the Old Testament,

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

they went on a campaign against women, that's the first thing they did.

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

According to history, more than 5 million women were killed by the Catholic Church.

00:11:12--> 00:11:23

Five, that comes a lot of women accused of going against the church accused of being witches, so forth and so on.

00:11:25--> 00:11:33

It shows that women at the time lacking the time within a visa salon was very powerful, powerful force, they shouldn't be

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

allowed someone created them

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

equal to us.

00:11:40--> 00:11:42

Same a bada same reward

00:11:44--> 00:11:46

that was reestablished by Mohammed Salah lorrison.

00:11:50--> 00:11:56

I'm just giving you a little bit of history because today's after the after all, you know, a great day for for the Christians.

00:12:01--> 00:12:07

And things they say we will do this in television, radio, because they're always talking about the Muslims and the

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

fact Muslims are terrorists and very violent people.

00:12:13--> 00:12:24

And the labor say the programs or programs that the Catholic Church had against its own people in Europe, killing millions of them, not only killing them, but burning them at the stake alive.

00:12:31--> 00:12:33

And for information, the word crucifix

00:12:34--> 00:12:38

or cross, which is a symbol of Christianity.

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

The symbol

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

comes from the word in Latin.

00:12:47--> 00:12:47

I was I think

00:12:50--> 00:12:54

krushi era krushi er I did some Latin many years ago.

00:12:56--> 00:13:03

You'll be surprised to know that the root of the crucifix across krushi era in Latin means to torture.

00:13:09--> 00:13:14

So that which represents the Christian faith has its roots in torture.

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

Because that's how the Romans the Roman Empire, managed

00:13:22--> 00:13:34

to suppress the original faith of resolve itself to slob and turn it into a faith based on the traditions and customs of the people.

00:13:40--> 00:13:46

I want to add something which I normally do. I was in London many years ago, very fleetingly.

00:13:48--> 00:13:56

And I visited Of course, when you go there, you must visit Westminster Abbey, for those of you have been there, Westminster Abbey beautiful

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

church.

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

Then got married in that church, by the way.

00:14:04--> 00:14:16

It lots of simonsson Cardinals and bishops buried in Westminster Abbey, got a lot of corruption. Mazar says we call them in our in our language.

00:14:19--> 00:14:20

And it struck me at the time

00:14:24--> 00:14:26

when you go into Westminster Abbey,

00:14:29--> 00:14:30

they sell to you

00:14:33--> 00:14:33

oil

00:14:35--> 00:14:39

which the Christian us Christians used to rub

00:14:40--> 00:14:43

on the mythos to rub on the graves of these people.

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

And I always thought to myself, you know,

00:14:54--> 00:14:57

what is the difference then between us and them?

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

We are going

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

The same route

00:15:03--> 00:15:04

to somehow other

00:15:06--> 00:15:12

crush this faith twisted, subjected to our traditions and customs.

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

Not only that

00:15:17--> 00:15:27

we are following the customs and traditions of those people whom the Navy sasaram said never follow them. If they do something to the opposite to the nesara

00:15:30--> 00:15:33

we had exactly the opposite of what Mohammed Hassan told us.

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

Today

00:15:39--> 00:15:45

I will Kitab is but a semblance but a ghost a vision

00:15:46--> 00:15:49

of the message of very sadly salatu salam

00:15:52--> 00:16:01

after 2003 2000 2013 years 2000 Amina 1400,

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

after 2013 years

00:16:06--> 00:16:12

east, which is one of the most sacred times in the Catholic Christian calendar

00:16:14--> 00:16:18

has become totally usurped and covered over with chocolate,

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

chocolate celebration.

00:16:24--> 00:16:27

There is not a semblance of what actually happened

00:16:28--> 00:16:29

on these days for Christians

00:16:33--> 00:16:41

become totally commercialized, and become the why, because of the disconnect this juncture

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

where the Word of God

00:16:45--> 00:16:46

with allows

00:16:49--> 00:16:54

I always tell my children, because they always ask me

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

about death and about death and about this and about that.

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

And my answer, because we are confronted today with many issues, many ideas, many interpretations.

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

When I say well, which interpretation Should we take? How should we move ourselves in this world? And I say to them,

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

know your fundamentals.

00:17:26--> 00:17:31

If you know and understand who you are

00:17:32--> 00:17:55

as a Muslim, and what you believe in as a Muslim, then anything which anybody presents to you, you will use the fundamentals as a yardstick and measure it against those fundamentals and then you as a Muslim, endowed with intelligence as make your decision as to whether it

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

concurs with the fundamentals or not.

00:18:00--> 00:18:03

And what is the most fundamental law in Islam it is a form.

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

That is why

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

the scholars of Hadith

00:18:13--> 00:18:15

the teachers of holly

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

will tell you

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

that one of the ways to measure

00:18:24--> 00:18:37

the authenticity of a hadith the correctness of a hadith is whether that Hadith one of the measurements is to see whether that Hadith is in conflict with a polar

00:18:40--> 00:18:52

bear isn't had either the promises of majestic that if a Heidi is in conflict with Iran, it is not a hadith of Muhammad, Hassan obviously can be How can I never

00:18:53--> 00:18:56

say something which is in conflict with the word of last parameter.

00:18:59--> 00:19:03

So it is essential and important for us to understand.

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

And therefore

00:19:09--> 00:19:15

our analysis of the Koran is extremely important in the time in which we live.

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

Today inshallah.

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

We will start also to unfurl.

00:19:27--> 00:19:32

The one unfurl means war booty that which you

00:19:34--> 00:19:37

take from the enemy when you've won the battle.

00:19:40--> 00:19:43

Suit will unfold is followed by surah Toba.

00:19:46--> 00:19:49

Mo the Sooners revealed in Medina

00:19:50--> 00:20:00

and file is also called for con and it's also called sorted by the because surah two and file deals with a battle of battle.

00:20:01--> 00:20:05

And it's called alpha con because the Battle of butter

00:20:06--> 00:20:07

was the beginning

00:20:09--> 00:20:13

of the battle between half and Bothell.

00:20:17--> 00:20:18

And for con

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

means

00:20:24--> 00:20:29

that we decide which distinguishes the truth from the untruth

00:20:32--> 00:20:38

so to unfurl prophesied to the Muslims, a great victory for them.

00:20:40--> 00:20:45

This victory came much later. It came at the fall of Makkah in the province of Hong Kong.

00:20:46--> 00:20:51

So it deals with a question of victory of nossal.

00:20:54--> 00:20:55

of ex tendency

00:20:56--> 00:20:59

of overcoming the odds.

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

The surah deals with that.

00:21:03--> 00:21:10

It deals with what is required to overcome the odds now sooner to unfold and surah Toba is in fact, one single surah

00:21:15--> 00:21:31

It is the only surah in the Koran. one surah that has been split into two. If you read surah, alpha l and n Toba, you will find that the seam of unfurl and Toba is exactly the same.

00:21:33--> 00:21:42

And why do we say that it is one surah that has been split into two because the proof for the sees that

00:21:45--> 00:21:51

surah Toba does not begin with the words Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

00:21:53--> 00:22:00

it doesn't begin with this is the only surah in the Quran that does not start with Bismillah R Rahman Rahim

00:22:01--> 00:22:04

and father thoughts is with Bismillah R Rahman Rahim

00:22:09--> 00:22:21

In other words, allows you to have no talent did not instruct the Nabi sallallahu Sallam to start Sora Toba or al Bara Bara with Bismillah R Rahman.

00:22:22--> 00:22:26

It is proved that unfurl and Toba is one surah is one theme.

00:22:29--> 00:22:33

And as I said, it is a turning point. It

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

changed

00:22:37--> 00:22:42

the character of the Muslims from being oppressed to being victorious.

00:22:43--> 00:22:50

It was a great day in the history of men. So the birth Battle of Bible is the greatest victory for mankind.

00:22:51--> 00:22:53

It was the day

00:22:55--> 00:22:56

on which

00:22:59--> 00:23:04

humanity turned from the worship of men

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

to the worship

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

of the creator of man. When I bought at the labor, ILA I bet that robbed the labor, from the worship of men to the worship of the role of men, because at the time, we have to understand

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

the world was subject

00:23:28--> 00:23:41

to the worship of men in terms of slavery, and Islam came to liberate men, and particularly women from the yoke of slavery.

00:23:46--> 00:23:47

If we look

00:23:48--> 00:23:54

at the Battle of mother, and you will know the story of the battle, but the important was to go back.

00:23:57--> 00:24:03

The balance the material strength, and the balance between the two parties were completely skewed.

00:24:07--> 00:24:11

The enemy was 1000 with 300 horses.

00:24:13--> 00:24:16

The party of Muhammad sallahu wa sallam

00:24:18--> 00:24:21

was 313 with one single horse.

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

I think if any one of us were asked to join that party, we would have said okay, we'll come tomorrow.

00:24:31--> 00:24:36

It is obviously a recipe for total failure.

00:24:38--> 00:24:41

Reminds me of our shoulders in the Central African Republic

00:24:46--> 00:24:49

and allows for how to describe for us

00:24:51--> 00:24:54

the belief of the believers

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

of those who defended the truth on the day

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

Hello

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

harmless is in me noona levena Akira Allahu

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

wa Jalla

00:25:09--> 00:25:12

la Sagara says, verily the true believers

00:25:14--> 00:25:17

when Allah is mentioned

00:25:20--> 00:25:21

What do you like boo boo?

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

Their hearts tremble.

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

Fix the hearts. What?

00:25:33--> 00:25:38

What is Juliet Allah him to who is that whom.

00:25:39--> 00:25:44

And when the verses of the Quran are recited in increases for them, they faith in Allah

00:25:46--> 00:25:57

will be met our Lord. And they the true believers of those who put the absolute trust in Allah Allah subhana wa Tada

00:26:01--> 00:26:06

This is the ninth to October and far will be the eighth and ninth tour of the aura.

00:26:09--> 00:26:20

In these nine surahs we have not come across a single indication that there is need to shift our trust to other than allows for

00:26:22--> 00:26:24

meet to an angel

00:26:25--> 00:26:30

to a profit or to me, doesn't exist in Islam.

00:26:31--> 00:26:34

Allah says, will Allah be him yet avocado

00:26:36--> 00:26:45

and what makes him so strong? The Quran I'm not saying this. From from the Quran, Allah says when the year the words of Allah

00:26:48--> 00:26:50

when unless name is mentioned,

00:26:52--> 00:26:53

the heart tremble.

00:26:56--> 00:26:58

Does the glory in the greatness of our laws.

00:27:01--> 00:27:05

And allows one law says in the beginning of surah and fall,

00:27:07--> 00:27:10

talks about the element of yuckiness

00:27:13--> 00:27:14

of certainty.

00:27:21--> 00:27:24

Certain trust in the last one, absolute

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

and the belief that victory in your life and my life, success in your life in my life.

00:27:34--> 00:27:39

Woman nostru inlab benign dilla in Allah hi xizhou Hakeem

00:27:40--> 00:27:45

And verily know that victory extend NC and success

00:27:46--> 00:27:48

comes North back from Allah.

00:27:50--> 00:27:53

Verily, Allah is the one who helps, he's the most wise

00:27:55--> 00:27:56

but as you have seen,

00:27:58--> 00:28:02

in a loss of 100 doesn't mean that

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

victory

00:28:09--> 00:28:10

is a divine miracle.

00:28:13--> 00:28:14

No,

00:28:15--> 00:28:20

it doesn't mean that you should say Allah monsoon Allah, Allah monsoon Allah.

00:28:23--> 00:28:27

Allah give us victory of our enemies Allah still gonna help you

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

alone.

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

Why?

00:28:33--> 00:28:36

Because Allah Subhana Allah says

00:28:37--> 00:28:40

that you need to adopt

00:28:42--> 00:28:45

all the measures necessary for success.

00:28:47--> 00:28:53

Either assumpta fatawa Corollas is up to you if planned, then you put your trust in allows.

00:28:56--> 00:29:01

Even the Navy salatu salam when he went to bother didn't go empty handed.

00:29:02--> 00:29:26

They had the swords with him. That's all they had at the time. That's all they could muster. That's all they had is as worried as allowes Wagner says that he can be anila lamea Kumara gira an AMA and I'ma holla comin Hector you Hey, you mad and foreseen what Allah says, Allah says, it is because Allah will not remove

00:29:27--> 00:29:35

more urine and mutton Namath and Allah will not remove a favor, which has bestowed on people

00:29:37--> 00:29:37

and

00:29:41--> 00:29:52

they change that. Yeah, the meaning is different. Allah says he will not take the favor away from you, unless you change yourself from good to bad.

00:29:54--> 00:29:56

When you change yourself, Allah will remove the favor.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

What Allah subhanaw taala

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

will allow saundra is all hearing and all night.

00:30:09--> 00:30:13

So victory then in Islam and success lies between human effort

00:30:16--> 00:30:23

adjuvant juvenile Bashar, human effort and Divine Decree.

00:30:24--> 00:30:27

Allah Most other help of our last Ponta

00:30:28--> 00:30:43

because he's not as divine miracle as I said. And we pray and we prayed, we prayed, we prayed we pray, and we pray in Medina and in Makkah and in Goodson every way we pray for Palestine and Swati Stan and for Iraq and for Syria.

00:30:45--> 00:30:56

We say but you know, we've played for so long, 60 years you praying for Palestine, and nothing has materialized you still exactly the same position? Because prayer alone is not enough.

00:30:59--> 00:31:13

You cannot come to the masjid five times a day and pray and say that's enough. My family Allah will send food for them Allah will pay the rent, Allah will get talcum to say Christiane, Allah will see that the municipality is water bill is paid. No.

00:31:14--> 00:31:17

You have to make the necessary effort.

00:31:20--> 00:31:23

The opening question in pseudocode and file is the following.

00:31:24--> 00:31:53

Yes, I do a candle and fall Allah says they ask you about and fun about war booty and we know that 13 such questions were asked by the Sahaba to the Nerys are allowed as a lump. Third, only 13 times in the whole Koran, Allah subhanaw taala responded 13 questions were asked for which the Prophet did not have an answer.

00:31:54--> 00:32:05

And 13 times Allah responded, one of those times is this type Yes or no? No. Can you infer they asked you Mohammed Salah about the war booty.

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

Cool.

00:32:07--> 00:32:15

And every time a question was asked of the obese Allah Allah, Allah responded by

00:32:17--> 00:32:21

prefixing the answer by beginning the answer with the word.

00:32:24--> 00:32:26

Yes, aluna cadila Hila

00:32:27--> 00:32:37

yamawaki talena Allah says they ask you about the new moon. Tell them the new moon establishes time and also the time for Hajj.

00:32:38--> 00:32:44

Yes, Allah carnal. mahina they asked you concerning the beast waiting woman

00:32:45--> 00:32:47

taglib Mohammed Salah is

00:32:49--> 00:32:55

that it is harmful for you. So stay away from them will demonstrate

00:32:57--> 00:33:02

only one of the 13 questions Allah doesn't answer with a word.

00:33:08--> 00:33:12

Well, either luck or idea adney for India Karim.

00:33:14--> 00:33:18

Allah says O Muhammad wa salam, they ask you

00:33:21--> 00:33:22

what, what was the question?

00:33:29--> 00:33:38

Either sir Luca de adme. O Muhammad salam, your companions asked you about me.

00:33:40--> 00:33:44

Savas Rasul Allah. is Allah.

00:33:46--> 00:33:51

Christian, because the Prophet could answer Where is Allah?

00:33:52--> 00:33:53

So what is the answer?

00:33:54--> 00:34:03

No pony. Allah says, well either sila cry daddy Annie, for any Karim. Allah says

00:34:05--> 00:34:07

they ask you where am I?

00:34:11--> 00:34:16

No Omaha Mattel the Deadwood is taken out. Allah says I am near to them.

00:34:18--> 00:34:21

No Mohammed in between me and my servant.

00:34:22--> 00:34:31

No, you tell them no, I'm telling them directly. I Allah answer the question directly. For me. I am new to them.

00:34:33--> 00:34:41

Eg Buddha with a diary that fell yesterday. When they call upon me I will answer them provided when I call upon them they answer me.

00:34:45--> 00:34:51

So the question of the relationship between me and my Allah is direct.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

Not even Mohammed Salah Allah so Allah comes in between me and my relationship with Allah.

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Yes,

00:35:02--> 00:35:03

Colin,

00:35:04--> 00:35:06

de la Hayward, Rasool

00:35:07--> 00:35:08

Allah says,

00:35:09--> 00:35:10

Allah doesn't answer the question.

00:35:12--> 00:35:20

This is the only time when Allah doesn't answer the question directly Allah says, tell them or Mohammed Wahby or booty belongs to Allah and His messenger

00:35:23--> 00:35:34

is Why are you so interested in the material side of life? This question is asked in the first verse, Allah gives the answer in the 14th verse of the Quran of the surah.

00:35:38--> 00:35:47

Maybe it's an indication of telling us when somebody asks you for something material, you let him wait for 40 days, either. Maybe we shouldn't be so eager to.

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

So allow us on the in the 48 verse, Allah says, dial them one six of the war booty is for all these baysinger and the races for the Atacama on Misaki for the race for the poor and often it's open

00:36:04--> 00:36:04

for

00:36:06--> 00:36:14

debate Nicola says your important job is not to ask about what we booty what you you see the harmonica back at the screen vatos but

00:36:16--> 00:36:19

what is he wages for the de vida

00:36:20--> 00:36:21

seemed like

00:36:22--> 00:36:24

they were like us human beings because

00:36:27--> 00:36:29

the Quran changed them completely.

00:36:30--> 00:36:37

So the Quran was do that twice unless you do worry about factor cola worry about your consciousness of Allah waffly

00:36:38--> 00:36:51

and worry about the relationship with each other while co la hora solo and new obedient to Allah and His Messenger in good if you say that you truly believe in allows hunter so that was the opening question

00:36:53--> 00:36:57

which means Sahaba were worried about

00:36:59--> 00:37:02

pay some money wages but they can get

00:37:04--> 00:37:08

so they were hesitant like we would be

00:37:09--> 00:37:32

we are going no we just going to intercept a caravan which is coming from serious base of caravan Archer goal on this caravan. Lots of stuff on this caravan. We just gonna go intercept the caravan. That was the that was the the brief that we gave them. We spoke with him in Medina, I said, Who's gonna come we're going to go for hotswap we're going to rob the bank,

00:37:35--> 00:37:36

the courage bank.

00:37:39--> 00:37:45

So when they came to Berlin, and they saw the position has changed, the caravan was gone.

00:37:46--> 00:37:51

And the army of the correction was there. And this was an end in battle.

00:37:54--> 00:37:59

They wasted because they thought they were going to go to an unarmed

00:38:02--> 00:38:09

convoy, that they will just overtake and take the stuff but allows the world differently.

00:38:11--> 00:38:18

Our world that that was going to be a decisive battle. And it was going to test the Tahoe

00:38:20--> 00:38:21

of those Muslims.

00:38:26--> 00:38:34

So now we had a situation with Sahaba are shaky, they were scared. They were scared they were dead scared.

00:38:35--> 00:38:49

Because they knew Abidjan was seven feet above law. These were God giants. They were well fed sitting on big cameras with a big Swartz. They were the leaders of Makkah, they were the Americans of of the world.

00:38:51--> 00:38:54

This was going to be the end all of them.

00:38:55--> 00:38:56

Allow allows for HANA to Allah

00:39:00--> 00:39:00

tells us

00:39:02--> 00:39:03

first.

00:39:04--> 00:39:08

In any battle with anybody or anything, you must be psychologically prepared.

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

The mind must be prepared.

00:39:12--> 00:39:19

How do you prepare the bank? How does the student prepare himself for an examination? What does the teacher always tell you?

00:39:20--> 00:39:24

Every teacher will tell you and I never took the advice. That's why probably

00:39:28--> 00:39:31

they're always the teacher always say go sleep early.

00:39:33--> 00:39:38

Don't go and sleep late the night before the examination. I always say little further in the morning

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

allows for hautala What did he do?

00:39:47--> 00:39:51

Now that's a habit remember they were entrusted with sitting there in the desert.

00:39:52--> 00:39:55

Knowing that this was his big army on the other side of the hill

00:39:57--> 00:39:58

and in mourning is going to break

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

Hell of a battle is gonna break out. So they were anxious allows for how

00:40:05--> 00:40:08

is he or she come under

00:40:09--> 00:40:27

eminent domain allows them to send sleep to them, the man who allow them and it says Allah made appointed to be the Harris the watchman. He said in the middle of the night he sleep came to him and he was looking down the valley to see who's sleeping in everybody was sleeping.

00:40:28--> 00:40:32

Everybody was in spite of the anxiety. They were asleep

00:40:34--> 00:40:48

and allows sleep to calm you. That's why the first thing a doctor does or a psychiatrist whoever deals with our demons. They first asked do you sleep not have that okay take this tablet sleep.

00:40:49--> 00:40:53

Do you eat not have anything we take this drink does it give you appetite.

00:40:55--> 00:41:00

So two things are important sleep and eat and allow some teachers are setting the clock.

00:41:01--> 00:41:08

Then when they woke up what do you need in the morning when you wake up for an important appointment for an important examination.

00:41:10--> 00:41:14

Your mother will tell you first go take a shower. First you must take a shower allows

00:41:17--> 00:41:26

for cleansing the outer body and for removing the stain of a thought from the inner body. Because in Islam, we don't just shower.

00:41:27--> 00:41:28

To us It's cold.

00:41:30--> 00:41:33

We say NO WAY too soon, it'll loosen

00:41:34--> 00:41:34

later.

00:41:36--> 00:41:49

Well, even if you don't make any near and you cover your whole body with water, you have completed the fallout of also which is to cover the whole body was water. So inside is clean and outside is clean, strengthens you

00:41:51--> 00:41:55

and it also puts your feet firmly on the ground so Allah swana first prepared them psychologically

00:41:57--> 00:41:59

then the mental preparation

00:42:01--> 00:42:02

for the RV.

00:42:04--> 00:42:14

What was the preparation for the army? If you rica como la fi Miami Catalina allows founder, and I was looking at this verse and thinking Subhanallah What happened?

00:42:15--> 00:42:27

was the most anxious in the most worried Warhammer talara so he never fought before this will be his first battle. He is the commander of the army. He was anxious for is meant anxious about what may happen.

00:42:28--> 00:42:45

So why did Allah do to allow Swan to put him to sleep and Allah gave him a dream and Allah told him in the dream Bahamas a syrup. These courageous just a few people they don't worry they think just a few people when you look at them, they will just look when you see them tomorrow you will see them just a few people

00:42:49--> 00:42:53

while araca home Kathy, Kathy, Ron Kathy

00:42:54--> 00:43:00

well uttanasana to Allah says, because Allah says if I had shown

00:43:01--> 00:43:03

if I chosen this companions

00:43:05--> 00:43:09

that the Quraysh was 1000 and they were 313 they would have

00:43:10--> 00:43:11

collapsed

00:43:14--> 00:43:19

and they would have been in two bites must be attacked this army mercenary attack the US Army.

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

What is this?

00:43:23--> 00:43:28

You know, when you go to a psychologist, I know the psychologist in the audience.

00:43:31--> 00:43:34

And I'm thinking about something you know what they do the hypnotize you.

00:43:36--> 00:43:44

You fear something, they say cover will equal and they make you I think this is the process they must correct me if I'm wrong. Not now after

00:43:48--> 00:43:59

they make you think that what you think what you fear is not what you feeling. It's something that's you know, it's in your in your mind. Other words, they put something in your mind which takes away your anxiety.

00:44:02--> 00:44:06

On the other hand, when you go to an ordinary doctor, they always increase your anxiety.

00:44:09--> 00:44:20

They put the thing on your art and then less and less than you think what is meant nothing so long for justice. And then he turns your arm and he puts his head on the back and he says zero. He says

00:44:23--> 00:44:27

then he turns around, he walks to his desk and he writes me down. I look at him What

00:44:29--> 00:44:29

do you find?

00:44:31--> 00:44:38

So that's not the way the divine works. The Divine always brings down the image of the calamity.

00:44:41--> 00:44:59

Or the woman is pregnant and you go to the doctor and the doctor will examine your wife. And you say you know what, I must tell you this, you know, but it's 100 times worse than what it actually is. The Divine is noticing a loss on the brings down. Allah brings anxiety down by telling me sad

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Few people may not worry about

00:45:04--> 00:45:07

when allows for Hannah tala during the battle

00:45:09--> 00:45:12

is testimony to Nora baucom. Allah, Allah says oh Mohamed Salah.

00:45:14--> 00:45:15

You decided to confront them.

00:45:18--> 00:45:36

You employed my assistance. I am giving you an answer. I am going to send you how I'm going to send you 1000 angels to assist you in your bedroom. Well, Mr. ramita, either Amita Joaquin, Joaquin Allah Rahman Allah.

00:45:38--> 00:45:43

I'm telling you don't think that you fighting this battle. When you shoot in your head, I'm shooting there.

00:45:47--> 00:45:52

Your trust is so great in me that I do what you want to be done.

00:45:54--> 00:46:04

When you put your faith and trust in Allah, Allah does for you what you want to be done Subhana Allah and that was the life of Muhammad Allah.

00:46:06--> 00:46:10

And Allah, Allah also chose the time and place of the vessel.

00:46:12--> 00:46:18

Basically, allows farmer chose to side with us a horse on the sand was soft.

00:46:19--> 00:46:22

And the side that decorations on the sand was hard.

00:46:24--> 00:46:26

So Alzheimer's in the rain,

00:46:27--> 00:46:32

the rain made the soft side hard, and made the hard soft.

00:46:34--> 00:46:46

So that the wolves of the otters and the camel sank into the same on the enemy side. And Allah made firm, the side of the Sahaba alum salatu salam

00:46:47--> 00:46:49

and Allah arrange it so

00:46:51--> 00:46:55

that the Muslims are in in a more advantageous position

00:46:56--> 00:46:57

than the enemy.

00:47:01--> 00:47:05

So we now know that in our lives in our daily lives,

00:47:06--> 00:47:08

very important for us

00:47:09--> 00:47:11

to put our trust in allows pontotoc

00:47:13--> 00:47:14

we understand

00:47:16--> 00:47:17

when we read the Quran,

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

that the saint of the Quran is Allah

00:47:23--> 00:47:30

that allows rather than a spoke to us via all the profits, the final one being Mohamed Salah La Jolla.

00:47:34--> 00:47:35

It is the Koran

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

that gives us our view of the world.

00:47:44--> 00:47:46

Not all are subject to standard usage you'll use

00:47:49--> 00:48:00

the Quran gives you your worldview. What is our worldview? When we look at the camera, when you look at the detail in the Quran? How do we look at the world? The first thing the Quran towers is

00:48:04--> 00:48:05

to make to double

00:48:06--> 00:48:07

and tougher

00:48:09--> 00:48:20

continuously over and over and over allows Pamela says Think, think think contemplate

00:48:22--> 00:48:25

So, the foundation of the way we look at the world is

00:48:27--> 00:48:30

what is called as a big word called rationalism basically means you must think

00:48:34--> 00:48:37

that all the knowledge that comes to us in the world

00:48:39--> 00:48:43

must be subject to the dictates of reason and common sense.

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

Reason from way from common sense from you the reason from

00:48:55--> 00:49:04

number two, that if everything is subject to knowledge, we reject all myths and custom which is contrary to our D

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

which is contrary to the

00:49:14--> 00:49:18

and most important of all, the most important thing of a Muslim is

00:49:19--> 00:49:23

that when he gets knowledge which he did not have before

00:49:25--> 00:49:31

then he must accordingly change his behavior in terms of the new knowledge.

00:49:36--> 00:49:41

Many times you do something for 20 years, 30 years 40 there's something that I did for 40 years 50 years of my life.

00:49:43--> 00:49:44

Read

00:49:45--> 00:49:46

study

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

and you realize but this is the way it should have been done. So what do you do? You say no, no, no, no, I'm not gonna do it that way. Because I've been doing it for 40 years like that. I mean, what's gonna happen if I change Nirvana law, you know, what is my wife and my child

00:50:00--> 00:50:12

Martha Martha never disappears. No. Part of what you part of your faith is that the more you learn Imam Shafi Rahim Allah just one simple example.

The book that he wrote on fifth in Baghdad he destroyed it meant it not exist, non existent.

00:50:21--> 00:50:25

The only book we have is a book that he wrote in Cairo, the oma and on

00:50:26--> 00:50:32

Because in the light of new knowledge,

00:50:51--> 00:50:52

man changes his behavior.

00:50:54--> 00:50:55

What we want to do is,

00:50:57--> 00:51:06

in our spiritual life, and in our material life, we want to do the same thing every day, and expect the results to be different.

00:51:10--> 00:51:13

If you don't expect the result to change, you must change your behavior.

00:51:15--> 00:51:16

Number two,

00:51:18--> 00:51:39

00:51:41--> 00:51:42

Don't let anybody tell you

00:51:46--> 00:51:50

that you carry the sins of someone else. You don't.

00:51:51--> 00:51:54

Don't anybody tell you that somebody else carries your sin they can't.

00:51:56--> 00:51:56

00:52:41--> 00:52:46

And you might call the judgment call for truth or falsity is yours You must decide.

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