Alhamdulillah Allah who and who want to stay true to who want me to be here on a token rally for now the villa Himanshu and sinsinawa Molina, Mayor de la Fernando De La Hoya you
wanna shadow La la la la la la la sharika wanna shadow Anna Mohammed Mohamed, an avid
follower of d o Salam O Allah. He was early he was heavy woman da da e la Medina Medina brothers and sisters in Islam. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa Taala.
hamdulillah. We are still continuing with our lectures on the explanations of the
that allows for hunter Allah has sent the Quran to us.
And what we generally looking at are the different themes
that different surah of the Quran, bring to our
knowledge and allow us to practice and become better human beings.
Today inshallah we
will be giving the theme of serotonin,
which is the 16th surah in the whole of Iran. And the word nahal means bees.
Those creatures that manufacture honey allows pantalla has used them as the name for the surah.
And the surah
of the Holy Quran consists of 128 verses.
Most of them were revealed in the last years
of the Prophet's life in Makkah, between the year 610 to 622.
In other words, it was a time
when there was great oppression
and a great mockery being made of the weakness of the Muslims in Makkah.
But inshallah we'll come back to that a little bit later, describing the situation and mark at the time was a revelation of this verse.
But what does Sora and hell contain? What is the main content of serotonin, serotonin hell, for most of the jurists,
they consider it to be surah to Nam.
They call it by another name called the sutra of divine favors, or the sutra of bounties, or the sutra of graces, the sutra, the sutra of blessings of allowance, putana. sutra to the head or the sutra on these deals with the endless blessings and bounties and favors, which allows not only bestowed upon the Muslims, but which allows founder bestowed upon the whole of humanity.
If we should take paper and pen
and start writing down all the bounties and the blessings which allows for Huntelaar given to us.
And we then to read surah, two, after we have written down the blessings on a page, and we then go to Surah, two, and we reach ratanda. What do we find? We'll find that every single one of those blessings, which we may have written down, will easily be found that even blessings which we are not even aware of.
So this is one of the most important thing to remember what sort of to not Hello sort of the bee's knees, that it is a surah which encapsulates all the blessings which allows Pilate Allah has given to us and it turns our attention
to the universe. It turns our attention to the creation around us. It turns our attention to the basic necessities, which allows the hungers provided for us.
And when we take for granted for example, that we're sitting in this Masjid, and there is light in the masjid, if we treat the light of it will still be light in the ministry. We take for granted the light of the sun. Imagine the sun didn't rise this morning. We would be living in total pitch darkness, and it won't belong before life as we know it does not exist anymore. The dunya there is just the light of the sun, which we may have forgotten to be a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala and after our last
Hello tala has delineated and reminded us of the blessings which has bestowed upon us allows for how the law says, Who am I becoming? Now I'm a thin feminine law. Allah says And remember, our humankind, that what blessing you have of health of wealth, whatever blessing you have of skill of intelligence, whatever Allah given you, allows hunger that says, will not be coming near Mateen seminoma every blessing comes from our loves.
every blessing comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Of course, there are things which increases our blessings in this dunya for example, if you are kind to our neighbors, kind to humanity, kind to the animals kind of the environment. If we look into the faces of our mothers and fathers, with love, and mercy, all those things are blessings for a child to look into the face of his mother was love. It's in a bada.
It's akin to make it
look, looking into the face of your father, with Rama and mercy, is akin to neighbor. So all these are blessings which we take for granted that we take for granted that we have a mother, we take for granted, we have a father. But we don't realize the great bounty and the divine favor, which allows how that has gone to us. Those of us who don't have mothers and fathers, I think we are more acutely aware of the great blessing. And it's such a simple blessing. When we take so much for granted. And how if we, if we if we allow that blessing, if we try and weigh that blessing.
It's you can't wait. You can't value it. And yet when they around us, we take them so much for granted. In fact, some of us even say things to our parents that we're not supposed to say that we sometimes ignore them. But we're not supposed to do that. Sometimes we don't even visit them for weeks, sometimes for months, sometimes two days.
we neglect them the greatest blessing in our lives. So Allah says
So remember, every blessing that are given to you is from a last time we're in town and algo surgeons in the Surah Surah, two nalsar of the beast, verse 18, Allah says, we're in town do Namah de la de la sua in Allah.
Allah, Allah says, and if you should
count, down, do namak Allah.
Allah says any count out there doesn't say if you should count the blessings of Allah. Allah says, If you should come the blessing of Allah, Allah led to you will not be able to give a number to a blessing which was given to you. What does it mean? Why now let's say and you should count the blessings of Allah knows fundraising, if you take one blessing that Allah has given to us. And we try and break that blessing down into the benefits that we derived from that one blessing, we will not be able to count
what one blessing contains. Give an example which Allah gives also, in the surah
example of milk,
we take it to the shop every morning we buy the milk within the porridge with the children raisins at night, it's good.
and modern science has progressed to such an extent where they can put a sperm and an egg cell in a dish and make a baby from it and put it back in the mother and baby clothes in the mother's womb. And then you have a child.
And we know the technology is developed in every field of science.
But no scientists have ever come up with the process for turning grass into milk.
I mean, it'd be great, isn't it?
Imagine we could just mow our lawns.
Take the cuttings of the lawn tools in the machine. And Subhanallah the end of the day comes out white pure white milk
was no grass taste. It has its own taste supanova that is only one blessing which allows you to take take it for granted to buy milk.
But you think where the milk comes from Subhana Allah and the greatest scientists have not been able to imagine how much more are much of malnutrition will be known because that is a nama that allows for hunger that's given to them. Just one Namah Namah Thomas Allah says you should try
and dissect one now Marvin. I mean, I don't even want to talk about your site which was given to you. Just the fact that you can see me or the fact that you can hear me or the fact that I can stand and speak to you, or that you have speech Subhan Allah.
These are the blessings of Allah Hunter. And the Quran that warns us that these blessings which allows whatever is given to us, we should not waste it. nor should we trivialize it to think it's just nothing, nor should we use the blessings of Allah in a way in which Allah is not pleased with what has given us well, we should use it in a way which pleases our last parameter. I was given us how we should use it in a way that pleases us.
And so every blessing
has to be Allah gives us great great whiner for this era. You should eat it enjoy it, but not my wife. So sewer to hell then
the 16th Surah nahal as I said, means bees by
contains then all the blessings the divine favors the bounties, the greatest which allies bestowed upon the world.
And I've said previously tuna, Brahim, which is the 14th surah. That's also a sewer of blessings.
But that sort of deals with only one blessing
or by the greatest nation with only one basic. So Abraham deals with the blessing of EMA and the blessing of Elijah.
And what is the connection between that surah which deals with that blessing? And so,
the difference is that surah Ibrahim deals only with a one blessing. Of course, the greatest blessing of a man and taqwa but this Surah Surah. Unal or that surah of the BS deals with all the blessings which allows for how that is given to us.
star to re Brahim as I've already explained to you with the words Alif Lam ra kita good and zelner la Caleta Khadija NASA when a guru Murthy either nor be ignorant being sued by Brahim starts with what
starts with keytab
the book and zelner which Allah revealed meaning revelation, so right Brian starts with a blessing of Revelation. Because without revelation there is darkness. And this revelation Allah says that's why
Luke originally took region NASA manabu Mattila new takes mankind from the darkness of ignorance to the light of knowledge and faith in email.
And similarly Surah
Surah the bees which are visible today allows other essays in the second verse, unit 00 mean m&e Allah ye shall mean Agha again, Allah starts with what? yen zero Malacca baru, Allah says, we send down the angels with a spirit. Yeah, Revelation Allah refers to Revelation or to why as rule as life as spirit, why? Because it is. revelations referred to as life or spirit. Because why he has the capacity to revive and rejuvenate the spirit of man, as he did with an abyssal wasallam. Every time he was at his lowest ebb, allies to give revelation to him to raise
his confidence and his dependence on Allah subhanho wa Taala. So as I said earlier, and it is this growth of the Quran,
this rule of the Quran,
this revelation of the Quran,
which inspired the Arabs of the desert women, these were Arabs of the desert they were made when Arabs live. They didn't even live in certain communities, living tents, seeking the grazing wherever they could find it. Except of course, Arabs of knockin Medina.
It transformed them. Imagine just two words, transform them from a nation of marauding tribes and hordes, killing each other.
Having a marginal place in history, nobody knew about them in the Arabian Peninsula
into a dynamic and vigorous force that was to lead the world and today still leading the world. We'll come back to that later on ciao. So
These verses sort of mahalo the BS was revealed in those last years of repressive operation, which was suffered by Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in Makkah.
When the Sahaba in the Navy, Salah
was suffering under the oppression of the Arabs in Makkah at the time,
Muslims lost heart
because the Quraysh was telling them, yo God makes so many threats in the foreign, he's gonna do this he's going to do that is going to destroy us. He's going to make you your religion, the religion itself aware of the threat stage to Satan. So go to the hub and say, your Quran speak so much about punishment of God, and God will do this and God will do that. But so far we have seen nothing, nothing has materialized we oppress you, we kill you. We we have exiled you to Sydney and all these places, and yet your God has not come to your help.
With this surah was revealed, allows her to reveal the first verse, the first verse of surah two, what is the first verse of certain law allows pharmacys
a term Allah says,
All Muslims have Naka, the judgment of Allah will surely come.
do not seek to isolate,
allow for analysis, the judgment of Allah will come, the Wrath of Allah will come. the playing of Allah will be carried out. As Allah says, You reduce the use of neuron law for him. While Allahumma tipo de pollo courier capital, Allah says, And Allah will make ease light, the light of His revelation.
It will block out the darkness.
You really do not need to Allah says, but the kuffar that brought up the light of our laws.
They try and
suppress Islam. They try and sideline Islam. They try and vilify Islam, but Allah says, while long with him uno de voto, Carioca, but Allah will make this Deen luzira wala de liquidly will make this Deen above all the other religions of the world while Oh Carioca Brunello fantasies, even though the non believers or the unbelievers, detest it and don't like it, they will try will ever basis Allah but Allah says
Don't be hasty.
Yes, your timing and timing is different. But Allah says, Don't feel despondent, let up Natoma Rahmatullah allows for handling his own time to complete his favor to mankind. And we've seen now, I mean, it's
it's rather ironic
this when Snowden
was given asylum in the Soviet Union, who had revealed to the world all the
spy tapes, all the people that the NSA, the National Security Agency of America,
all the phone calls and
cables and all that,
that they intercepted,
it now appears
very embarrassingly, to the Americans that they spied on their most important European partner, Germany.
That, in fact, tapped the phone of Angela Merkel, who is the chancellor of, or the leader of the German people, greatest economy in Europe, greater support of the United States. And so within France, most of the European nations have been spied upon by, by the Americans. And, you know, when I watch this kind of news, and I read this kind of news, I say to myself,
that's very strange. These people are supposed to be allies. They are supposed to be the greatest buddies, they're all white, all repin. They share the same religion. They share the same objectives. That is to call all Muslim terrorists, and to fight terrorism at all costs. They all share these things. I mean, we consider them all to be not enemies, but definitely not friends of Islam. Yet they do this kind of thing. They spy on each other. Can you believe it? They actually spy on each other. Imagine
Even the phone calls of the chancellor and I went to the Quran and suta myself. What is allowed to say about this in the Quran is endemic in the Quran which Allah speaks about this kind of behavior. And yes if you go to Surah, two, hasher
go to Surah
Surah, to Hashem 55th surah from
the 55th no 59th Surah
Surah in the Quran verse number 13.
And this also of course,
is an inspiration
to Muslims all over. It was an inspiration to the
prophet of Islam Mohammed Salah lasala Sahaba energy to tell us
what goes on in the camp camp of the enemy. Allah tells us in Surah alhaja which is the 15 answer of this 30 hour tells us what is going on in the friends in the camps of the end what is Allah saying? Allah says
LAN to Masha Dora vetem Fie sudo reedman Allah. Listen to what Allah says lanto Ashok Dora bottom fish rude email Allah says, All Muslims, they fear your modernity, Allah
radica the unknown COVID I have come because there are people who have no intelligence.
The things they fear most is more than a fear God. Allah says
that he can be unknown comala larrieu heart You know nutcombe Jamie and iloveyou Cora Maha Sati O'Meara doo doo allows harnesses and almost limbs, you will find that they will not fight you, except for from the castles or the enclaves and from behind walls, because they're afraid of you. They will always fight you from afar by remote control. They'll send drones to kill you and shoot rockets from
ships in the ocean. But they'll be afraid to face you alongside
your partner Luna Kim Jong Il Cora O'Meara back soon assume buying a home Shadi.
Listen to what Allah says you must go read it up inshallah. When you leave.
Allah describes the camp of camp of the inverted Allah say, but Allah says,
but as to who may know Sinead, Allah says
the enmity amongst m sub are very great. Once you look at these European nations, you look at Germany, Holland and France and Italy in Spain, merican Canada. And you think, wow, this is the great Alliance, the western alliance against Islam, but allowance Pamela says, they have great enmity amongst themselves. They hate one another.
I mean, why should a medical Spa in Germany, if America loved Germany so much? Why it's fine? I mean, the worst thing you can do to your friend, the worst thing a man can do to his friend to spy on you. Then allow Sandra says,
to whom Jamie and waku boom Sha, Allah says
all Muslims, you look at them.
And what do you do you consider them to be one block? Allah says you look at them, and you consider them to be one of one intention and one block What does Allah say? waku boom Shaka with Allah says, their hearts are divided.
Allah says, their hearts are divided.
These are the divisions and it comes up to clearly. I mean, the previous What is the name of Zeus up? He was in the South American Embassy in London, what's his name? First first first man who brought all the the spy
What's his name?
What's his name? Julian Assange.
So that was the first example this is a second example of we are allowed to watch Hulu shatter, the hearts are divided. So I lost all that then.
So you can see that the Quran
speaks about everything. Nothing in the Quran is left as left out. Allows rendre gives us an understanding of everything that happens in the world. Only we would read the Quran and take heed of the lessons of the Quran. So as I said the surah SWOT analysis of the beat
16 should have the Holy Quran deals with Nana. It's also called surah to Nam the surah blessings of bounties of graces of blessings of Allah subhanaw taala. Allah speaks, of course, first about blessing of Revelation.
And allow speaks about the blessing of the creation of men, creation of the heavens in the earth.
And the alama tell us,
to Kony, to
the scholars of the future,
the eye at the signs that you see in the world around you
is the interpretation of the ayat of the Quran.
So if you want to know the Quran,
and you want to learn from the Quran, you have to study your environment, the mountains, the rivers, the seas, yourself, and that's why I love Honduras is that sanctuary is
what we unforseen had.
Allows, says, and we will show those who don't want to believe in the message of Islam, Allah says we will show them
in themselves and in the world in which they live.
That this Quran is the truth from Allah Spano
even though they may deny it,
I mean, we have a campaign on this country at the moment
to stop liquor advertising on TV and radio waves.
Because they have now realized the truth of the Quran.
The Quran has told us for 500 years that
wine is haram
allows foreigners prohibited the imbibing of anything which intoxicates
but they still have blind
in that they were advertising but it's all Celica.
It's like saying, you know a bad woman in the seat. We put her in a burqa, and in a kurta and put a niqab but she can still go and do whatever she wants to do. It kind of lines.
But they're realizing they should only recognize that the revelation sent to Mohammed Salah, Salah is a revelation, if it is followed,
will bring will resolve the problems of this age in which we live.
And we saw on television the other day,
in this week, in fact, there was a conference out in London
on Islamic Finance, and who spoke at this conference, the British Prime Minister spoke at this conference. And what is the British Prime Minister say at the conference.
that he wants London to become the hub of Islamic finance.
That his government, the British government is to give his to issue bottles that you can buy at schools to cook which will be completely in compliance with Islamic law.
Because Islam I told us 1500 years ago, you know, the great crash in the crashes still carry on the great crash of the housing crisis in America which swept throughout the world. And we still suffering from the effects of that. I mean, our growth rate in this country, I was looking at the other day, our growth rate
is about equal to the growth rate of Egypt at the moment. And I asked myself the question, how is it possible that the growth rate of the biggest economy in Africa is equal to the growth rate of a country that is suffering so much, and it's not even a democracy at the moment?
That has come back to Cameron,
where it can say, Cameron finally admitted, he didn't say but he admitted to the fact that Islam came to terrorists 15 centuries ago, that money has no intrinsic value.
Under the Dharma pocket, it has no value. Islam says it has no value. If I should say to you, I'll give you a million dollars.
But I'm gonna drop you from Allah copter in the middle of the Sahara Desert.
When you take the million dollars
you take the one on because that million dollars can buy you nothing in the middle of the Sahara Desert.
In fact, you will die, there's no water, you'll die with a million dollars under your arm, you will die of thirst, or you'll die of hunger.
Which tells us that money in itself has no interest what is value that money only has value in what it represents, and what it can buy.
If your money can't buy anything, it's useless.
If your money can represent an asset, that's why before in early years, for every ran that we had, there was a piece of gold who held interest in Pretoria, which represented catwalk Rand, they've removed the gold standard. That's America and South Africa. For these countries print is print money, no backup, no asset value, the money is no asset value. And Islamic finance basically is that you do not you cannot
increase your wealth unless you increase the assets which that wealth represents.
And that destroys the whole principle of Riba making money upon money, which is worth worthlessness upon worthlessness.
And that has brought great economies like the American and British economies to its knees. So again, we see how Islam is leading the world again.
With all the mutterings and utterings and distaste of Islam, you will find that this movement of Islamic finance based on the absence of Riba is going to take root
in the world, they have no other choice. It's like the wind thing in this country.
The government has realized the greatest curse on the society, especially on black society in this country, the majority of the people is why
the murders the motorcar cost the government billions and billions, billions of dollars in hospitals and, and
paying people who got accidents and murders and children being left without parents and so forth and so on. So it is a great Scourge
against society. And who's leading this.
Mohamed Salah lonesome, Mohamed Salah Salam declared 15 centuries ago through revelation that there is no good in Riba, Allah, Allah says, if you don't leave Riba, what will I do? I will declare war upon you.
Why did Allah say that? Unless such a
weird character that he just wants to make war? No. He wants us to realize how dangerous his position is.
How you need to move over and hamdulillah in the last 6070 years we've moved slowly slowly there is a movement away from
the at least choices in the marketplace that we have. We don't have to go that route. Because remember, every man child or woman who lives in Riba
brings down the economy of visa haircut.
And I'm not saying this because it's theory no expect is in practice, it's been proven. So in this tour, they swear to Allah Allah founder again puts the Muslims on the front burner and tells us that if you use the the blessings, the divine favors which Allah has given to us, divine for atoms of Riba, absence of hammer and all the other things that allows for how Allah will
make us again the leaders of the world
the question we have to ask ourselves is why is this super cool the surah of the bees
because it deals
with a subject
of bees, allows regular seasons tourists 68 and 69. of of the surah Ohara bucola.
Allah sees an allied send revelation, why inspiration
to the bees, and it tells me the mean algebra houses as I inspire them
in the program that they should follow to build the nest in the mountains Allah says in the trees and in manmade structures, and then I inspired the bees to go and eat mean Cooley thammarat of every flower we take nectar from all flowers. First lukey Sabina Arabic to follow the program which Allah has set out for the bee
up to me on Minwoo Neha Sha, Allah Allah, Allah says it from its comical con.
Shara honey, of different colors.
fuchsia holiness, US allows harmless and endless honey.
There is a medicine for mankind.
And you'll be surprised to be I'm sure you know that Allah jaysus, the Vizier in the feminine gender.
I have given the program to the female bees
that they shall go and get the nectar and they shall bring it back to the hive. And they shall make the honey
1500 years ago, there was no way of the prophets of Salaam knowing the difference between a male and a female.
In fact, it was only discovered now in this century.
But who knew the difference allows have been created the big news, the big news, the difference? Only now we've discovered that it is the female bee that does all the work,
the washing, the cooking,
and everything else.
So a lot of it is the female bee that brings the honey to the home.
The sweetness is an analogy
that says you marry wives to bring tranquility. Love fiction.
That's the role of a woman in the home to make the honey in the home.
That is the natural program that allows fathers given to us for our mothers and our sisters.
That's why the homes are full of lemons today.
No honey, no was no mother in the home. No wife in the home. We've changed the natural order that allowes has given and this surah this these verses, Allah Allah could have let the man do the job. No, no, no man's got a different job to do. He must sowing seed in the female so she can be more bees. That's his job. It's a duty of the mother to see that the honey comes into the home.
And the word Shiva Allah says that it is a mission
a man when they came to the Navy so some say Dr. Salalah My brother has got diarrhea, very bad diarrhea. What should I do?
So finally we're only he wasn't only profit, it's also a doctor.
So the profit
Luisa Sallam said give you a brother hadn't
eaten. So after a few days the bank came back and said his diary is worse.
No solution to the diaries stomach has stolen. So then Sam looked at him and smiled and said give me more honey. Because he stomach is lying Allah telling the truth.
And he went back and he doctors don't know Do people know that honey has a lot of medicinal qualities.
And one of the qualities it has is it it is a great What do you call this? kills germs and anti antiseptic. So if you have a if you have something in your eye for example, you can rub it in your eye to kill the to kill the germs. It's a gem killer. You cut yourself with some honey on kill the germs
and in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala uses word medicine or cure only twice in connection with only two things.
One, zero man Karani Maha Shiva. warahmatullah momineen, Allah says, and we have seen down
of the Koran that which is a matron and a cure
for the Muslims spoke to a person yesterday
and he was saying that his wife isn't so well. And people have said to him, you know him as we as the Met and must do this and must do that.
And I said, Brother,
if you can read the Quran, get somebody to come into your home and read the Quran.
Allah, Allah says and we've seen done of course you must go to the doctor also
probably didn't say read the Quran to them and say take the honey. So there is a there is a Shabaab dunia v tasers. These are these
The physical cause for cure and of course is the code from Allah, Allah. So Allah, Allah says the Quran is a cure
and allow sama says, the honey is a cure.
And so marriage is also a cure
for many things.
So you can see that when Alexandra speaks in the Quran about bees, it's not really about bees, also about the birds
and the bees and whatever they do between the two of them
and that we organize in a social setup.
And what does it say? What is luck? What is Allah saying the verses about the B it emphasizes the revelation which are given to the B
I was given to the BA program says you follow this program you both Yunus you go and fetch the nectar and you make it into honey and then you will be you'll be able to make honey
so what am what is Allah saying a lie saying if we follow the law
and the program which I'm not saying to us, we will produce the honey of he die and know in our lives.
We will follow the program Allah has given program of Salah of charity goodness lasagna says we implement the program like the bees implement the program allows for hunter level bring about honey in our lives. And finally our last target is
through all this and through all the struggle of the Navy sola salamin maka What does Allah say to me maca? Allah never wanted to then have been mecca of Mohammed Salim take up the sword and fight. No one revelation in Mecca came and said, You know you're such a terrible position. You should order to fight only came in Medina.
What was the command to the Navy in Makkah.
Verse number 125 of the 128 verses of surah Allah Allah Allah says, Allah Allah subhana wa bakeable hikmah one more it
was the Illuminati Yasser Allah says oh Mohamed Salah. So much has happened to you see, you are so pressed, but I still command you go to the way of old oil SAP, go to the word of your Lord with wisdom while knowing that it has been a good word, watch it Don't be let the acid and argue with them in the best possible way. So if somebody comes and says, you know, you Muslims, terrorist bombers, you know, all kinds of funny things, you know, surveillance you tell him
but look at what Islam is brought to the world.
Islam has brought to the world an absence of intoxication.
How can you thank Islam enough for that, to have made the world aware
of the great scourge of intoxication.
Islam was brought to the world 1500 years ago, a system of monetary development unparalleled in the history of man
absence of Riba and you know,
we've stuck to our guns
never won the Muslims say well, we live in this world of Riba that's it you know, we saw you know, we might as well join the crowd.
Why not? Because a lot of foreigners Koran cannot be changed.
Everything in the Quran is permanent.
And everything in the Quran will show its permanency and its value as time goes on. So needing to fill to fill out fallacies in the Quran in yourself that this book is the book the program to be followed. So while also giving Charla that we go to the Quran, read the Quran and learn from the Quran. alarum salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah
