My dear palestine.com If you want to participate in this program,
there's Allah subhanaw taala and he will feel canaliculi high
type tonight we'll be talking about Allah's covenant with Abraham Allyssa. To be honest with you, the covenant is covenant is very clear in the Quran. It's a bit complicated in the Bible. So you need to
we need to really pay attention to this.
To this subject, I feel that not enough research has been done by Muslims about the subject to challenge
the notion of this covenant
with between Allah Subhana Allah And Ibrahim in the Bible
because it's a very problematic and we'll talk about it tonight inshallah. So what we have in the Quran, we have the ayat in Surah, Al Baqarah, from ir 124 To 124 to 141, talking about Ibrahim alayhi salam and his family
and the covenant that took place between Ibrahim Ali Salam and Allah subhanaw taala. And Allah told us that Allah tested Ibrahim, with some obligations and duties. And Ibrahim Ali Salam fulfills these duties and these obligations.
And what happened as a reward, Allah subhanho wa Taala
made a promise to Ibrahim he said, I will make you a role model for humanity.
And this is an ayat 124 by the teller Ibrahima, or boo, we can imagine a moon color Indonesia radically Nassima I'll make you a role model for people
and a role model in which area in religion. So that means I will make you great religious leader. People will look at you different nations different people will look up to you and then they will take you as a role model.
So Ibrahim Ali Salam was thinking about his offspring, his children, his descendants, and he said that How about my offspring? Allah subhanaw taala said My covenant is not extended to the wrongdoers is not extended to the wrong dose. So some of your children basically will benefit offspring or descendants will benefit from this covenant, but others will not benefit from it.
Now here, how did Allah subhanho wa Taala describe the way Ibrahim alayhi salam fulfills these duties? Allah says I said in Surah, Dinesh where Ebrahim lady Wafaa, and that, and that of Abraham, who perfectly fulfilled perfectly fulfilled His covenant, and that's why Allah subhanaw taala honored him, he deserved this. This, you know, this great honor, because he perfectly fulfill the commands of Allah subhanho wa taala. But it is, when you study this covenant, it is about faith and commitment is the first thing that you notice about this covenant between Ibrahim alayhi salam and and an Allah subhanaw taala.
And it includes, of course, that the wrongdoers or injustice, people do not deserve this honor, they will not be included. This is something that we understood from iron 124 In Surah Al Baqarah. So basically the essence of this covenant here what Allah subhanaw taala telling Ibrahim, you perfectly fulfill the commands. If you Lord, I'll make you a role model and a religious leader to other people. Some of your descendants will follow your path. They will follow the path of Delphi they will be great believers and some of them will be also role models to human
At mo gram, prophets and messengers, any prophet and messenger, who came after Ibrahim Ali Salah is one of the descendants of Ibrahim Ali Silla. He has two branches of his family. The first branch is hot, sorry Israel La Silla. And the second one is Huck.
One of the descendants of Israel and Islam is Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was the final messenger to humanity. The other prophets have been to Israel, all the prophets of venues right among the children of Israel. They are all all of them, all of them are the descendants of Ibrahim Ali salah, through His Son, or grandson through His son is help. And then grandson, Yahoo Valley Center, and English Jacob. And he was given the name of Israel, Israel. So whenever you see the name again, the name is Sara eel in the Quran. It has nothing to do with the State of Israel. It has nothing to do nothing to do with the Zionist regime.
It's about the name of Yaqoob Ali Salah who was great prophet. Right? And actually Israel is a beautiful name. It means Abdullah in their language to servant of Allah subhanho wa taala. But it is abused now. The name of Ibrahim is abused. Abrahamic faith is abused everything is abused nowadays that's Allah Salam al Hafiz.
Now, we said that wrongdoers and not included in this in the in the in the covenant. So we know that some of the descendants of Ibrahim Ali Salah will be kuffaar will be wrongdoers, licorice, for example, Quraysh they are,
they are among the descendants of Ibrahim Ali Sara, the tribe of Quraysh. Right. Some of them were Muslims, and they became greater hobbies, and they supported the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Some of them will prefer were leaders of Kufa actually have this belief. And they fought against the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and he died as kuffaar and they are from the same tribe of Quraysh, the descendant of some of the descendants of Ibrahim Ali Salam, but now what can i What are we have different kinds of wrongdoing. So when you study the Quran, we find that of Holmium casumo Illa Christmann Doleman nefs was almost a hurry, and it was all filled Quran, two types of wrongdoing.
So wronging yourself against yourself,
against oneself and against others, oppressing others abusing the rights of other people. These are two types of loam in the Quran. And the first one, the first one divided into two.
The first kind of boom is shirk, or atheism or cover as a whole McDonoughs Avon, any, you're not going to hurt if a person decides to be a Kaffir or an atheist, he's not going to hurt Allah subhanaw taala no one is able to hurt Allah subhanaw taala but they will be oppressing themselves, they will be doing injustice to themselves. And the second type of room which is, you know, less harmful than the first one is either major sins or minor sins. Any sin is a minor is a form of doom of oppression against yourself. But of course major sins and minor sins do not take you out of the fold of Islam.
They're not, but some of the things might take the person out of the fold of Islam. And that's a serious matter because Allah subhanho wa Taala does not forgive Shere Khan the Day of Judgment. Allah subhanaw taala is willing to forgive Sheikh for a person who makes tilbyr from his shirt in this dunya this is something that has to be very clear. I met a person sometimes who lost hope in the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala because he told me I was professing shirk in the past, I was doing shirk. And I heard from Xu Johan Imams that Allah will never forgive Sheikh I told him Allah will never forgive shake on the Day of Judgment.
If someone dies as a mushrik if someone meets Allah as a mushrik, then he will not be his sins will not be forgiven on the day of judgment, because of his sheer but if he was making shake in this dunya and he decided to make Toba and he became more head, he became he maintained his belief in the Oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala that of course all his sins will be forgiven. This promise of ALLAH SubhanA wa all his sins will be forgiven and He will be fine being enlightened.
The second type of wrongdoing is, as I said against others harming others regarding their blood property, or dignity and honor. These are three types three kinds of oppression when it comes to ragging on
others doing oppression against others. It could be family members, they could be friends, it could be neighbors, they could be colleagues. They could be community members if you are hurting them regarding their blood, blood when I'm when usually when we mentioned blood killing someone else, killing an innocent person without a valid reason, or property, taking their money taking the do business with them and you take their money take their property, and this is haram, a type of loan or you attack their honor and dignity, you talk about them, you share stories about them, you talk about their private life, attack the dignity so that this is another form of doom and it is a major
sin. So these are the types of doom that Allah subhanaw taala talks about in the book in his book and of course, they are mentioned also in the sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now when it comes to trials of commands that were given to Ibrahim Ali Salim, of course, there are three opinions. The first one is they will rituals of Hajj, this is first opinion, second opinion, they said rituals of Tahara and Phaedra like circumcision, trimming mustache growing the beard cutting the nails. So these are the rituals of Tahara that we do. We are as Muslims who are familiar with him. And the third opinion I believe this is the right one. It includes everything,
including calling his own people to Islam, he has to face the whole society, even though he was young at that time. The only person who accepted his message is his nephew, both al SLM and his future. wife Sarah at the time, I think they were not married when he was facing his people, but he got married later on. Anyway. So two people accepted his message. And they believed in him and the rest of the people rejected his message including his father, including his uncles, or the whole tribe.
Now being patient with them when he was thrown in the fire. This is a big test for Ibrahim Ali Sena. And Allah subhanaw taala saved him from the fire. And also going to the sham going to the sham is a test because Allah subhanaw taala commanded him to leave Iraq, leave his family, leave his lead, leave his his house and go to the area of Hashem. That's another test and He left with his, with his wife and his, in his nephew, Lord Ali Salam
and also leaving that's a very extremely difficult test. He was commanded to leave his wife, harsher, the second wife with her son is married in a barren land.
In a barren Valley plantlets valley, the valley of Makkah, the time there was no no one there. No, leaving your wife and your child at the time. He was the only child his only child, leaving them in an empty place in a desert.
And they had a small amount of food and a small amount of water.
Think about it. And I think the most difficult one may be sacrificing his own son after he became a teenager. After he reached the age of 13 he was commanded to sacrifice him and he was willing to fulfill the Command of Allah subhanaw taala. So you can include all these commands the rituals of the hara and Hajj and all these commands and Ibrahim Ali Salam fulfill them in a perfect manner.
He perfectly fulfilled the commands of Allah subhanho wa taala.
And he said and he was a great messenger of Allah.
Now, when we talk about position of leadership and corruption, this is trying to understand the I 124 here.
So Allah's heard that I told him my covenant is not extended to the wrongdoers.
Does it mean that the wrongdoers will never be leaders in their communities?
We know that some of them are many of them are leaders
then we know them they are corrupted leaders. Actually if you think about it nowadays
all of them are actually following this path.
And when I'm talking about Muslim if you if you think about the Muslim ummah right and if we include the other branch of the family if Ibrahim Benu Israel, then all of them are the same nowadays.
So now here it's very important to understand and for Kobina
era then konia will era that a Sharia
what is the era del Colonia universal will University
Will Will includes what's what's good and what's bad, anything that is allowed by Allah subhanaw taala, not from a Sharia perspective.
Allah subhanaw taala will allow things to happen based on his other.
And the even the bad things are included in his other. Nothing, nothing happens in this universe against his will.
in a corrupted people becoming leaders
taking the position of leadership, this is something that Allah doesn't like.
Right, but it's not happening against his will, it is happening against his Sherry, I will, but not against his universal will.
And this will solve the problem of those who said, If Allah was good and merciful, or he exists, then he shouldn't allow for this evil to happen nowadays, the killing of children or wars and fightings and and pandemics and all these things, we cannot understand why these things are happening on Earth. They are happening because Allah subhanaw taala decided to test the humanity we are being tested. When we are being tested, then we will be doing good things at the same time doing bad things oppression will take place though.
killing of innocent people will take place because these people who are going against the Sharia I will of Allah subhanaw taala decided to disobey Allah subhanaw taala
but everything is included in his errata Colonia in his universal will nothing nothing happens against the the universal will of Allah subhanaw taala this is something that we need to keep in mind here what and understand very well. And those who are patient when dealing with a culture of Allah subhanho wa Taala with calamities and with with with major problems and hardship, these people will be highly rewarded on the day of judgment. And people will be tested in different ways. Some people are tested in their wealth, some people in their health, some people with their children. So everyone is tested with something. No one has a perfect life. No one has a perfect life on this
earth. It will never be perfect. Even if you think about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam who was the best man who walked on the surface of this earth. He lost some of his children. He had to face his own people. He suffered from hunger. He didn't have enough sometimes financial means he went through a lot la salatu salam because this life on this earth will never be perfect. It is not even it is not even perfect for someone like Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as I said who was the best man who worked on the surface of this earth
we're talking about these positions of leadership Rasul Allah as I said them, you know, when when authority is given to do so, no do not deserve it, he made it a sign one of the minor signs of the Day of Judgment. So and it is mentioned in a negative context. So someone came to him and he said, you had a Sula Metacell.
When will our when will the hour take place? That was the question of someone and he said when honesty is lost, then wait for the hour, even though he ITIL Amana Fanta visa
and he said he said How will honestly be lost or messenger of Allah. He said when authority is given to those who do not deserve it, then wait for the hour. And this is what's happening nowadays.
Authority is given to those who do not deserve it. And we are waiting for the hour. This is Ansar Al Bukhari. This is an authentic hadith. This just a side note about the Ayah 124.
Now when it comes to it comes to cities and land. In the Quran about the story of Ibrahim Ali Salam we know that Brahim Ali Salam
did not ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to grant the ownership of the land but in Mecca the city of Mecca for example to his offspring, no he asked Allah Subhana Allah to make it secure.
In surah, Al Baqarah and source Ibrahim Allah Subhana Allah Ibrahim alayhi salam asked his Lord, to make the city secure for his offspring and provide them with fruits
provide them a good risk. And in solid Ebrahim, he said keep me and my science away from worshipping idols.
He's always concerned about his religious commitment.
always concerned about his religious commitment to Allah Islam.
And the family, Ibrahim Ali Salaam and his family are amazing when it comes to, you know, protecting their faith and taking care of their faith.
After the construction of the Kaaba him and his marine Ali Salam, both of them were we're dealing with the same group of ayat from 124 to 141. But we're not going to go through all of them here 128 There was make us make us both fully submit to you.
And from our descendants, a nation that will submit to you so it's all about submission to God, about faith. This is that was their do after they completed the construction of the kava, so fully as in again fully concerned about the religious commitment and the commitment of their descendants. And then Ibrahim Ali Salam made it dua to send among them a prophet who will teach him the book and the Wisdom and who will pre purify them, who was the prophet here in this dua.
Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because he was talking about Mecca and the area of Mecca. So basically Allah I'm leaving my family here, send among them these two I was made 2002 years before the mission of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So after 2000 years, Allah subhanaw taala answered his their door and he sent Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a messenger in that community.
This is in 129, recite to them, this prophet will recite to them the verses, he will teach them the Book and the wisdom wisdom we said today in our hearts about wisdom whenever men wisdom is mentioned with the book, it means the sunnah of our Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam Didn't our hope, but today, we're talking about the authority of the Sunnah. We're discussing the concept of rejecting the Hadith or rejecting the Sunnah. So the term wisdom here in the Quran, whenever it's combined with the book, it means the Sunnah and also purify to purify them so Rasul Allah assassin was supposed to purify the Sahaba and his followers through recently the recitation of the verses and through the
teachings of the book, and the teachings of the wisdom this is how you we purify ourselves. And this is the only way that is accepted and approved by Allah subhanaw taala because there are people who create things create different rituals to purify themselves and to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala and they invent some sort of a badass and they get together and this they build their own sects and their own arrangement to worship Allah subhanaw taala believing that they are special people, they are doing something very special, they are connecting to Allah subhanaw taala in the best way if they are not following the guidance of the Quran, not following the sun, the guidance of
the Sunnah, then their deeds will not be accepted on the Day of Judgment. Here you will Alina m&r to Allah, whatever Rasul Allah whether to pursue amalco surah Muhammad, or you have believed obey Allah and obey the messenger and did not invalidate your deeds.
Now here, Allah's Herta after that he's telling us about Islam, when he asked Ibrahim alayhi salam to be Muslim, and he said I fully submitted to you. Allah told us he said that was the advice of Ibrahim as well as he moved to his children. Indeed, Allah has chosen for you this faith to do not die except in a state of full submission. You have to violate SLM lost his son, you use it for 40 years, for 40 years.
After 40 years, someone came to him to tell him to bring him the good news that your son is still alive.
So he said to Al Bashir, Al Bashir, Yanni, the one who brought him the good news, okay for Director Yusuf Yusuf can famous or Ali Salam, he was in Egypt. He said, How did you leave Yusuf Ali salah. And this man told him that he was the king of Egypt, he was not the king, but he was trying to send a message called Malecon Allah or the muscle.
He was trying to tell him that he has the full authority in Egypt like he was some sort of a prime minister. So Egypt at the time had a king and this king give him gave him full authority to manage the economy and the affairs of the state at that time use of after he explained or interpret
To him his dream. The story is well known in Surah Yusuf. So he had full authority. He came to his father and he said, he is a king in the land of Egypt. Over the land of Egypt, he said, We're Mother, look at the answer. We're mother asna OB molk. Allah Aideen in character.
I'll add in character Carla who are Muslim, Carl Erna Timothy Nirma. He said, what what I'm supposed to do with Kingdom on which religion have you left him telling me? So Iacobelli said after losing his son for 40 years, he didn't ask about his house. Is he married and having? Did he have children? How? You know, he was not concerned with these details. What happened to him during these 40 years? No, on which religion you have left him. And the man told him, he's a Muslim. He said the LAN Timothy Nirma. Now the NEMA The bounty for las pantallas completed, it's completed Yes, because the first part of the Natoma is that he knew that his son is alive. His son is alive. He did not die.
Right after losing him for 40 years. And Allah Timothy Nirma, he knew and now he's Muslim. He's still following the path of Allah subhanho wa taala. He said, Now, the bounty of Allah subhanho wa Taala is completed. So this is how they used to care about their faith.
And at the time of death, Allah subhanaw taala I'm going to shahada If, however, your approval mode, do you witness the one that came to Yaqoob Allah He said, he asked his children at the time of death, who will you worship after my passing? He was concerned about the religious commitment. And they said they reply we will continue to worship your God, the God of your forefathers, Ibrahim is married is hot. One God Isla Hanwha Haida when Allah Who Muslim moon and to him, we we all submit.
Now, if you think about it, this is very important here. Very important. We're talking about the Quran. They are one family, it's one faith and one family and they are united. Right in the Bible, you're gonna it's a different story.
In the Bible is a different story. They are divided.
Sumerian is not included in the covenant between ALLAH SubhanA, Allah And Ibrahim.
And then we start discover racism and deep problems in the Bible, which are the roots of what's happening now in Palestine.
This racism found in the Bible lay the foundation for what's happening now in Palestine. But here they are one family, two branches
of Abraham's family, but they are united. They are all following one path. They are all Muslims.
We will worship your God and the God of your father, forefathers Ibrahim, here we're talking about the children of Yaqoob and SLM how many children he had
12 the spot
and one of them is Judah, the father of Judaism.
The children of Israel, we're talking about the children of Israel, they are many of them are the great grandfather's of those who claim that they are Jews or Christians nowadays.
And then Allah subhanaw taala told us for is something very important and were confirmed in the book of Allah subhanaw taala. The Jews and the Christians were called Akula, who didn't own a surah to do using the Christians each say, Follow our faith to be rightly guided, if you want to be rightly guided follow our faith, be a Jew or a Christian. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Say oh Prophet, say, No, we follow the faith of Abraham the upright
who was not a polytheist
Hanifa Well, Amir could mean and Mushrikeen diamond hardeeville Quran whenever Allah, Allah mentioned Ibrahim, who would say that he was a Hanif he was upright, inclined from shirk to toe he'd following the path of the lead, and he was not of those who are associated partners with Allah subhanho wa taala, which means he has nothing to do with Judaism and Christianity. This is something that it's basic knowledge in our deen. It's a basic tenant of our faith, and we need to share it with everyone. We cannot be politically correct about it. If we're having a debate with our other people from the other faith groups with a Christians or Jewish people, yes, we do the debate in the
best manner. Yes, we respect other people, right? We treat them with kindness
But we cannot lie to them.
I heard in a in a meeting in a gathering where we had Muslims there and, and Jews and Christians. One young fellow from our community saying Ibrahim himself was a Jewish was Jew. This is not true. Because the torah was revealed after Ibrahim Ali Salam. Musa alayhis salam is one of the descendants of Ibrahim alayhi salam, how can we cheat people? And we tell them Ibrahim was Christian or he was a Jew. But this is what they claim in the Bible that he was from Israel. The bamboo bamboo is right, but who is right, who is Israel, Israel is Yaqoob.
And the children of Israel, they are the descendants of Yaqoob. And Sarah. So obviously COVID himself was not from the children of Israel. He is the father of his children. And his heart is their grandfather, and Abraham and he said I was their great grandfather. So they are not from the children of Israel. They are not Israelis. Again, Israel is here. I'm talking about the term in the Quran. The term Israel in the Quran, I'm not talking about the state of Israel, we have to distinguish between the two year one.
So here, this is work confirmed in the book McKenna Ibrahima, who didn't want to miss Ronnie and Ibrahim was neither Jew nor Christian. He was a honey following the dean of towhee, that honey fear somehow he was a pride following the deen of Islam, He submitted his will to Allah subhanho wa taala.
Now when it comes to the Bible,
this is the Canada this covenant is found in Genesis 12. Genesis 12 123. Now the Lord said to Abraham, Abraham was the old name of Abraham, before it was changed to Abraham or Abraham. So it was Abraham.
When he was in Iraq, this is based on what they're saying in their books, right? And then after Allah subhanaw taala made a covenant with him, his name was changed into Abraham. Right? So he said, he said, Now the Lord said to Abraham, go from your country and your family and your father's house to the land, that I will show you the land here the area of Hashem
the any official in Palestine and Lebanon and Jordan, and Syria nowadays a greater cerium.
So this is well known, but the land is a big topic in the Bible, the land. So in Islam, we know the covenant.
Allah's covenant with Abraham was all about faith and commitment and fulfilling the obligations and Allah subhanaw taala after he fulfilled his obligations, Allah made him a great leader to all humanity. Right here is all about the land, the promised land.
And the second area or verse in this, this book here, the Genesis, and I will make you a great nation and I'll bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. His name is blessed and his name is blessed, Brahim was blessed. There is no doubt about it.
I'll place a bless those who bless you, who are those who bless Ibrahim Ali Salah on a regular basis on a daily basis.
Now, Muslims, they are the ones who mentioned him in their prayer on a daily basis, five times more than five times. If we pray only for either you will be mentioning his time
or mentioning his blessings that Allah Subhana Allah blessed him, asking Allah to bless Mohammed sauce and the way he blessed Ibrahim Ali Salam. So at least five times if you pray all for either, if you do the Navajo you do the robotic.
You will be talking mentioning the name of Ibrahim and the blessings that were given the blessing that will that was given to Ibrahim Ali salaam
more than around 40 times every day,
So Allah subhanaw taala said here, whenever I have to be careful here, I have to be careful. This is what is in the Bible. What is our position regarding the verses of the Bible?
If something is approved in our deen, then we don't have a problem to accept it. If something is rejected, I'll show you a text that is definitely definitely should be it's very racist, very dangerous. And Netanyahu used it these days.
That's an Yeah, he used it in November in the month of November. Of course, he's regretting now. I hope that he is regretting using this text from the Bible because the court, the International Court of Justice are using the our brothers from South Africa. The lawyers from South Africa you
Using this text now against him and I guess his
is his helpers in his is his government, the members of his government. So
whatever is approved in our dean, we don't have a problem we can accept it, whatever is rejected, we have the obligation to say it's false. And it has to be rejected, rejected in our deen because Quran is the final message to humanity. And Allah promised that he will preserve the Quran and the book of Allah subhanaw taala, we have no doubt that the Quran was preserved.
So now if you want to understand what is in the Bible, the final reference would be always the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa tan the Quran.
Now, if something is natural, we don't know if should be approved, or it should be rejected. Rasulillah Salam gave us some guidance about it. He said, do not believe in it, and do not reject it. Because if it is false, you will be believed and you believe in it, you will be believing in something that is false. That is not true. If it is true, and you rejected it, then you will be rejecting something that is true. He said take a neutral position regarding anything that is neither approved in your dean. And it's neither
nor nor approved, neither any neither approved nor rejected. Right. It is not approved and it is not rejected, then take a neutral position regarding it. But this one here, Oh bless those who bless you. It's a beautiful actually concept. And we know that we always talk about Ibrahim Ali Salam mentioned him in our prayers. So basically, this is the origin of this covenant is about land, and about blessing. The problem there are many problems with this with this covenant, the way it is interpreted in their books nowadays, that the Abrahamic covenant is unconditional.
And it should be taken literally.
And there is no need to spiritualize the promise to Abraham. That means there is no need to give it any spiritual meaning. That means the descendants of Orion they don't have to do anything
this promise or covenant from God, it is given to them. Their father was blessed Ibrahim and his children through his heart is main is mentioned sometimes that he will be blessed and his children will be blessed. But when it comes to the covenant of Ibrahim about the land, the land, I found more than 170 references about the land, the promised land in the Bible.
If you come to come back to the Quran, the land is mentioned only two times in the time in the life of Musa alayhis salam.
The time in the in the time of Musa alayhis salam there is no land
when it comes to the covenant of Allah subhanaw taala with the Brahim in the Quran, there is no land that is mentioned the covenant of Allah with Ibrahim in the Bible is all is all about the promised land which is Palestine
and they say that this promise will be fulfilled digitally that means they don't have to do anything is a conditional.
But we I will show you from some if in the Quran, there is no promise that can be given to anyone from Allah subhanaw taala that is unconditional. Everything is conditional. You fulfill your duties you obey Allah subhana wa Tala you deserve Chanda, you deserve your rewards. You disobey Allah subhana wa Taala you have nothing you have don't have the right to ask for anything. And you don't deserve to get anything from Allah subhanaw taala. This is basically the Quranic concept about these kinds of promises from Allah Subhana Allah, if we are talking about promises from Allah subhanaw taala towards his servants, and Muslims, and the people of the book are the same. They will be
treated in the same way. I'll show some aid when it comes to this. But this is how the Bible is interpreted. And these people are studying the Bible, in their churches in their Catholic schools. Children are growing up with these concepts. And it's only about one family, the family of is happily seller, and they will promise the land and they have to be blessed and those who bless them and support them they will be blessed. That's why there'll be many people, majority of Americans believe that they need to bless Israel, the State of Israel, so God will bless their land America. And that's why he when you study this the Bible, you will understand this unconditional support that
is given to them by corporations and
Governments and, and wealthy people, and the amount a huge amount of money that is sent to Israel to support the State of Israel these days. And they are closing their eyes. They're now talking about all the crimes that are happening there, because they have the obligation based on these texts to support the State of Israel. We believe it's a religious obligation.
And it's my aim, as I told you is not included in this promise or covenant because they said is help is the son of the promise that is married, married is the father of the Arabs.
Now, when it comes to Promised Land, as I said, I found the route, maybe 170
references and most of these references about their enemies, the enemies of ancient Israel, right. The State of Israel, of course, when we, when we talk about the children of Israel, we have to admit that many of them were good people. They were good Muslims. They submitted the will of Allah subhanaw taala. Among them were great prophets like Musa al salaam, Lucretia Allison and the old Ali Salim Sulaiman and those who followed them, many of them were great people, right? But many of them change their book, the book of Allah subhanaw taala, the corrupted their own religion, they became very, very racist here, there is a text that I will I am confident that it cannot be the word of
Allah subhana wa Tada. It's impossible. And this is the one that was used by Nataniel This is the one that was yours is a biblical reference, but earlier conflict with mL mL guides.
So these references now go and attack ama look alike who is a tribe and all nomadic tribe tribe that used to live in the land of Palestine or, and they were not Muslims at the time. And when the children of Israel moved from Egypt, to the area of Hashem, they found them there. They are among the local people besides some other tribes, the Amorites definition, the Philistines, many, many tribes were there, most of them were Arabs, some of them might have come from other areas. But before the children of Israel before moving after they moved from Egypt, they found these people there. So didn't have a good relationship with these people, the Amulek.
And the texts here saying utterly destroy all that they have, do not spare them, but kill both men and women, infant and nursing child, oxen, sheep, and donkey and camel basically destroyed the whole nation killed the children. When Netanyahu made this statement. He was talking to his people. And I said, remember what the analog analog did to you. And he was talking to comparing between Hamas and an analog. Later on his, his soldiers were, were chanting.
And using this reference, were chanting in Gaza. Using this reference, basically, he was encouraging his soldiers to kill everyone, and this is what they are doing. This explains the killing of more than 10,000 children in the State of Israel.
This is the root of these crimes. And I as I said, I believe not enough, I don't believe there was not enough research done to challenge this racism that is found in the Bible. Especially we have a problem a big issue like the issue of Palestine, that has been occupied for more for around 75 years.
But within do enough research to challenge this actually lies against Allah subhanho wa taala. This cannot be a divine text from Allah subhanaw taala because killing of woman and children and infants and babies cannot be accepted in any Sharia
in any religion. If I have it in the in my faith, I will, I will doubt the credibility of my faith
in our faith, it is not allowed it is not permissible to kill innocent people and to kill children and woman.
That's why you compare between the treatment of Hamas how Hamas treated you know, the the Palestinians or the people of Gaza treated their hostages, like they were in a vacation. Even non Muslims admitted that these people were in a vacation. They were not detained as as hostages the way you were treated. And the way away the Zionist regime is treated is treating now the Palestinian prisoners there is a huge diff
huge difference and at the end we are the extremist you know, I looked at this as this reference biblical reference. I searched it on the internet I didn't find any mainstream media outlets talking about it. Only one magazine from the US is called Mother Jones magazine from California the the the they talked about it
or an author in a writer who His name is Noah something
he talked about how dangerous is this biblical reference that was used by by Natalia
by ego check BBC check CNN, CBC here, CTV they don't talk about it.
We don't at all.
When it comes to you know, as I said, this, this is this was the used in the context of taking taking the land, taking the land from other people from their neighbors.
Now, when it comes to our deen here, one
How did Islam fight against racism?
Allah subhanaw taala told us in Surah two, for example, in the economic command Allah Who at Koco.
So no one can claim any, any any any racial superiority that we have. We as people because we are Arabs, we have a special relationship with Allah. Because we are Pakistanis, we have a special relationship with Allah, because we are the descendant of this and this so on. So we must have a special relationship with Allah. This concept does not exist in the deen of Islam. And I'm sure that it did not exist in the faith of Ibrahim alayhis salam. It did not exist in the face of Musa al SLM or Yaqoob or is harp it's the same faith is the same religion. Right? And here, Matheran Allah subhanaw taala is refuting what the Jews and the Christian saying
said about themselves in Surah tilma ADA Bacala, Talia, hoodoo and masala natinal epanet Allahu Akbar,
the Jews and the Christians each day we are the children of God. And his most beloved say, O Prophet, Why then does he punish you for your sins? Not you know you are only humans like others of his making. Belen to Bashar Rumi, McCulloch, you are just humans like others who created right you cannot claim any special status with ALLAH SubhanA wa taala. Because you are the descendant of Abraham Allison, if you are the descendant of Ibrahim and you want to claim that you have Yes, your full will if Ibrahim you have to follow the path of Ibrahim and I said
you have to follow the dean of the lead and this inshallah till married. This is very interesting, because there is an area about the land in Surah In Surah, tilma, either 20 or 21, when Musa alayhis salam told his people to go and enter the land that Allah subhanaw taala has destined for you to enter.
Even some Muslims are confused about this idea that maybe this land belongs to them because of this is 20 or 21 in salt in Surah tilma Ada, what is the reason? Why did Allah asked them to enter Jerusalem at that time? You know, the reason?
Can I ask you Mallesh let's ask young people.
You don't The Reason Why did Allah ask them to enter Jerusalem?
At that time, the time of Musa Ali salam
after they left Egypt
the only reason Yahuwah
we were the only Muslims at the time they were following Zach Allah who the father of Musa al insulin, and the land of Jerusalem has something sacred.
Al Masjid Al Aqsa, which was built 40 years after the construction of Aqaba. It was built it was not built for the first time by Suleiman Ali Salam. I'll tell you in the future Halaqaat one Ibrahim want to lay man Ali Salam built the Masjid Al Aqsa. It was a second construction like he the foundation was there. He rebuilt it in 957 BC before Christian era.
But it was built for the first time, either during the time of Ibrahim Ali Salam or the during the time of Adam and SLM 14 years after the construction of the Kaaba, we have an authentic hadith about it. So the the message was there or the foundation of the masjid anywhere the only
Muslims at the time so they were supposed to go to the land of Jerusalem and take care of this mess ship. Like man Makkah. Also Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded rasool Allah Azza Selim to enter Mecca and to purify the Kaaba and take care of the Masjid Al haram. Because Moshiri cool policies are not supposed to take care of a mosquito Haram is the most sacred place for Muslims on earth for the believers. So believing people have to take care of it. That's the only reason
there is no special
you know, relationship between them and the land. Because they were muslims at that time Allah told us to, and you know what happened? He refused to enter the land. And Allah Subhana Allah punish them with something called wilderness wandering, wandering for 40 years in the land of Sinai. And they were only able to enter the land after there was a positive change, change of generation. All these old people died, there was a new generation. At the time of Yeshua, have you shall you shall be new noon, who was feta Musa alayhis salam. You know the story of Musa in Surah telegraph. The young person who was with him, he is another prophet. His name is USIA. He was their leader when he
entered Jerusalem after 40 years. And that was as I said, by the command of Allah subhanho wa taala.
In surah, Nisa, for example, Allah subhanaw taala is telling us how he treats people, whether they are Muslims, whether they are Arabs, whether they are non Arabs, whether they are the People of the Book, everyone is the same, let's say the mid qumola Emery Alif kita divine grace is neither by your wishes, nor those of the people of the book. So, there is a rule, there is a divine rule
may or may ensue and you disobey, whoever commits evil will be rewarded accordingly. You deceive disobey Allah subhana wa Taala you lose the rewards of Allah Allah whether you are a member of the People of the Book of you are Muslim, or a member of the Muslim ummah, you will be all treated in the same way.
And they will find no protector or helper besides besides God on the day of judgment when the Yamuna Salah had to a movement in the Karina ALSA, Yanni a male or female, if you perform good deeds, then you will be rewarded and your eternal place will be Jana BV later, this is a divine law that applies to everyone.
So, this is the These texts are very important to understand what to understand some other text,
some other texts, like Mithuna we have the text in Surah Ali Imran
Khan tumhara Martin Khadija cleaness. Allah is saying talking to the Ummah of Muhammad Salah listen, you are the best community ever raised for humanity. Do you think this is unconditional?
What do you think?
I'll hydrea Heidi Hoonah unless the hippo hubbies has ever been nessa do we deserve this honor because of our racial background? No.
Allah mentioned in the Quran in the same area. Ta Marula Bill Maher, are you enjoying what is good? You forbid what is evil, and you believe in Allah because of these things you deserve to be you deserve to be the best over come to Hydra on my team Krishna keenness. Now we have similar attributes when we started. And so people are confused about this ayat, how come Allah subhanaw taala always said that we favored them over above others, the others, he favored them above the others who were not Muslims during their time. Allah is talking about biblical times. At the time of Musa the time of ESA, at that time, Allah favored them above others who were not Muslims. Like the
AMA, look at that time, we're not Muslims. But even if they were not Muslims, there is no justification to kill children and kill a woman. Even if you are fighting with non Muslims. Are you allowed to kill children, woman and infants? You're not allowed to do that.
So but Allah subhanaw taala talks about the good people from Benu Israel, yes, he gave them the book, he gave them wisdom. He said among them prophets and messengers.
They were the only Muslims at the time. But how do we understand these texts? As I said, they are not there is nothing and conditional. Everything is subject to the condition of obeying Allah subhanho wa Rahmatullah medica Lemma and Hellene is God who had he Lehmann aka our taka with Teva Deen Allah Azza. wa jal, whether we're talking about Muslims
Over talking about the children of Israel, this status is granted to those who obey Allah subhanho wa taala. Those who follow the path of Allah strengthen and to be fair, in one reference, I found, I found in one reference one biblical reference the said by the children of Israel must follow the path of Allah subhanaw taala. It is founded in one of the references.
It's good it's beautiful
if the understanding and the forward
but the only duty that we talk about between Ibrahim Ali salaam when Abraham was given this covenant is circumcision. That's the only duty they talk about.
And Jewish people I think are following this tradition. But Christians they said circumcision is not is not a requirement anymore. That's why you find that many Christians most of the Christians do not do the this the ritual of circumcision and return
some of them do, some of them do who try to be very strict about their deen and follow the teachings of 30. But that's the only duty that is mentioned in the bible work in the context of this covenant that is given to Ibrahim Ali Salam.
That's the only religious duty that they talk about.
As I said it is part of their, their tradition nowadays.
