articulating Islam in the 21st century,
reliable alameen wa salatu salam ala nabina, Muhammad Ali wasabia divine.
This is sort of
chapter number 47
and we said that the surah is a Maki surah. And we explained the main topics of the Maquis surah. And we said that in the beginning of the soul Allah Allah Allah mentioned the disbelievers and how arrogant they were. They denied the proofs that Allah Allah Allah sent whether those proofs are rational proofs, or
proofs that can be seen as textual proof that Allah Allah Allah has sent to mankind which is what, which is our annual kitty and the Lord Allah, Allah, when he mentioned those who are showing arrogance towards the signs of a more general towards the proofs, Allah Allah, Allah also shows the other side, those who do not show arrogance and those who do submit to a Madonna and accept those proofs. That's why Allah Allah Allah mentioned women commonly he
mentioned that the the person for men Benny, is Allah. When Allah Allah, Allah says called our item Academy in the law, he will come to make washi the show hidden in benissa illa Allah
Allah Allah Allah mentions that despite the call for that many people are committing. There are people who submit to those proofs. And this handler, this organic method is a very powerful message because Allah Allah, Allah doesn't want believers wherever they are to lose hope.
And the Lord Allah Allah is just imagine that Allah Allah, Allah sends a prophet, and no one believes in him.
Yeah, no one, not even one single person. Yep.
And then another prophet, with the same message, and no one believes in him. And then a third Prophet, yes, and no one believes in him. Now how people are going to believe they will say, Come on, it is impossible that the entire mankind generation after generation, all of them agree to this to this belief in this message.
And the person that all human beings by nature, they will see themselves ought to believe this point, everyone. This believes that's why Allah Allah, Allah sent prophets and sometimes, yeah, many people believe, by like Eunice, la Sara, what about Allah, Allah said about him, bye, for now, who
am I? How is he doing?
All of them believed 100,000 yet, and the prophecy I sell on says on the Day of Resurrection of Prophet comes. Yeah. Maharajah radula Mahabharat and there might be some prophets who come with big followers big number of followers.
Yeah. So this is Jani dogma. This is part of the merging of Allah, Allah Allah that Allah Allah Allah wants us to believe and wants us to see that see, yes, there are people who do not believe but there are people who also believe
in order to encourage us to to believe. Anyway, we mentioned that the surah in the beginning is a has mentioned many proofs, many rational proofs, textual proofs, yonny different types of proofs that Islam is the help that Allah Allah, Allah is the only God and the true God, he is the only one to be worshipped. jello Allah. Yeah.
And Allah Janata mentioned that, as we said, despite this, there are some people who show our organs. And we said that the main theme of the surah is what that Allah Allah Allah becomes, so
angry with those who claim our organs or show our organs towards the ayah to Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Allah Allah seizes the modular Allah punishes them
with an individual's ordinations. Yep. And as we just said, that in the surah
by the end of the surah,
when Allah Allah Allah mentioned so many examples of those who did this belief, again, unlike no other mentioned to us the story of what of the jinn
that look, despite those people who disbelieve in Allah, Allah who rejected prophets of the prophets of Allah, Allah sent the jinn to believe in Mohammed Salam Allah
Subhana Allah in this there is like, yeah, any
way you can say that it is an indirect direct. How, as a modeler, as the province of assembler, or as a large analysis, we're in that hour long, we're still a little
too much Mara kuno.
If you turn away on modular Allah will replace you with people who are better than you. And they will not be like you. So if you turn away, as we send to Mohammed masala and send them they didn't believed in him believing in him. Yes, we don't care about you, if you do not believe. Yes, you are the losers. We don't care about you. Because our dyno Allah will send some who will believe without from the gym or from the ends.
We mentioned also that among those
that can be seen that bit strange, and many more fascinating. They discussed why these are mentioned in the middle of this, which is what by the is the talk about the parents after they died. La da da da da da da
da, da da, da
da equals how many holiday in America middle?
Yes, those who said that Allah and then remain firm on this day established his department. Yeah. And we have spoken about this. After that. Almighty Allah Allah all of a sudden said, was finally in Santa bydd. Here Santa Hamada to omokoroa wa tokota Hangzhou of your side who said if you wanna Shahada
and we said that allow lm It seems that Allah de la wants to show to tell us that, look, there are people who reject a lot.
Yes, and the boundaries of Allah the proof that Allah Allah has sent, despite the clarity of them, and they are people who by nature, they are outcome towards anyone who has been what so kind to them.
They never been grateful. Look, there are people who will be what? ungrateful to who to their parents, who looked after them.
Yeah, so there will be people who will be ungrateful to who to the Lord, who has looked after them, who has given them everything, who is the source of provision of higher of everything. Yeah. And we spoke about the importance of being kind to the parents.
Okay, we mentioned that, and the statements of the early scholars and other scholars regarding the righteousness regarding the importance of looking after the parents.
Obviously, obviously, if we start again to talk about the, the stories,
yeah, the stories of of,
of those righteous people who and how they were kind to their parents, we will maybe spend another session, but Alhamdulillah what we have mentioned, is
is not sufficient. Yeah. And it was just a reminder for myself, and my brothers and sisters. And
you know, one of the stories maybe we did not mention in the is the story of the three people who worked yet who went to from benissa who went to a cave, and then the cave was blocked, because the rock fell down and the block closed or blocked the exit. And so they were unable to
Live or to come out. And they started to say, they said let us make the outdoor modular Allah with and make tawassul toma de la ira with the best of deeds that we have done. And one of them when he wanted to make dua, he said, Yeah, Allah, I used to have two parents and they used to be old. Okay. And you I used to go and work. I used to go and work. At that time life was very simple the food maybe it's just the milk. He said, I used to milk, any the sheep or the cow or whatever, and bring them that milk. So they only drink from the milk as their main maybe their main meal before they sleep. And one time I brought them the milk, which was maybe the main meal for them on that today.
And I found them asleep.
Naturally, the person will say they slept. Yeah, he doesn't want to what wake them up. So he said, and instead of just leaving them, and maybe giving the milk to my children. At that time, people were poor. And maybe again, that would be the main meal for his children. He did not give it to his children. Nor he left his parents yet asleep. He stood up for the whole night waiting for them to wake up. Imagine this.
Yeah, and not even disturbing them. Not even disturbing them waking them up. Look at this, my dear brothers and sisters now whenever we want something from our parents. Yeah, we've just immediately mom and dad
yet, even if they are asleep, just wake them up. We don't care about this. We don't see. And as I told you, I feel sorry for you. Because you have not been maybe taught the proper way to deal with your parents in this country, unfortunately. Yeah. Okay. So you don't care about their feelings. You don't care about their journey.
Their situation at all. So this man, he carried the milk. And he was waiting for them until they themselves wake up. He did not wake them up.
Until they woke up. When they woke up. He gave them the milk while his children were hungry. And they wanted what? They wanted to have food.
Yes, he ignored his children. And he gave it to his parents. One time I was walking. And my son was young at that time, six, seven years ago, said he was seven years, maybe something like this of eight. And I was worth walking, I think in life in Saudi Arabia somewhere. So they had me next to my father, my whole life. And the man, a man looked at me and he looked at my son, he looked at my father. And he was from Yemen. Very simple, man. And he advocated what he told me, young lady, I know my son. This is a shoddy powder. Yeah, I need the old person is more important to you than the young person. This young person?
Yeah. a shaved head by caminhada
is more important to you than this son. Normally, we because of whatever reason, or many of us, not all of us. Yet we look after our children more than we look after our parents. Yeah. And so Han Allah The one who looks after his parents, Allah Allah will send to him who looks after his children.
Yeah, so if you want someone to look after your children, yeah, if you are worried about your children, look after your parents.
Yeah, and anyway, I don't want to get any I'm just genuine. While I'm talking about this journey. It is an emotional discussion and I'm starting the journey remembering the stories after his stories about the those who are just people who used to look after their parents and how they used to
think of ideas here to look after their parents.
In one of the early scholars he was
or one of them not even a scholar by
know something he was put in prison along with his father's? Yep. And this is, I think during the abasi period.
And his father maybe because of age, he always uses maybe warm waters to,
to make good. Yeah. So, and the God of the prison,
it stopped any kind of access for hot waters. Yeah, for them, because it is a prison. So this son, he used to carry the,
the pots that they used to use for maybe for whoodle. And he used to carry it for the entire night and put it above the flame of that
the fire that was used to not only to warm the prison, but to give light to the prison, which is something like you know, a candle or something like this very, very weak. But he used to carry it in order to what to warm the water for his father's. So his father when he walks up for federal Yeah, he finds some warm water to make Google with.
And then the prison God, he noticed this. So he took this candle or this flame. Yeah, he deprived them from that.
The Amir? He said, Well, why this is very surprising when he heard the story. The God told me that I haven't seen any person who looks after his father like this person. After I took any kind of source of maybe heat. Yeah. to heat the water in the prison. What did this son do? He would take the
this water pot and he used to put it Yes. Next to him for the entire night and just move it around in order to what
to heat it by his own body
to make it bit warm by his own body in order to work in order to provide just warm water for his father.
Sorry, I didn't want to mention his stories, but I have as I have mentioned this. Yeah. Even now. Now there were stories
that some of you that have mentioned by
one one of the one of the dark mentioned any some stories, one of the studies he said that that a father was missing his son when he died. And
yes, and the sun the sun? The sun, I think had like
garbage anime. In his in his in his feet. Yeah. And then that girl Caroline.
What is it gang getting into a gang get in? It was a cure for a very simple thing. Yeah. Very simple thing. No one expected that to be the only reason for it to be cured.
So they asked the father, Jani Gan What do you think? He said one time, one time I was with my son
and in an area and the snow started to fall. I don't know what that was. The snow started to fall. And we our car was broken down etc. We were standing after some time I started to feel the cold weather that it is very cold. And then I said to my son that I cannot feel yes my toes. I cannot feel them because the snow is covering the feet.
So much what my son did. Yeah, he bowed down. And he started to suck my toes finger by finger in order to give them heat.
Yeah, in order to give them heat until I felt the life again in my toes.
And he said because of this, I was saved. The doctor told me that your feet your toes are okay. So after some time, something happened to the the sun and had had
This girl getting a disease or something, and it was a cure By Allah, Allah Allah as a result for what he has done to his father for something simple. The scholar said that if you are righteous to your father to your parents, you will see the reward immediately in the dunya. Before the after.
Yeah, many, many. Yeah. Many people have said, and I'm sure maybe you have come across this, that. Yep. That whenever I asked my father to make out for me, Allah, Allah, Allah will accept his
many people have mentioned
with me, a few stories I came across.
Something happened with him. With me myself. Yeah. Whenever I asked my father to make dua for me, and I'm about to do something that is difficult. And my father is happy Rahim Allah or was happy with me and he says go, may Allah delight and make your affairs easy. Yeah. And you will see miracles in your life. Yeah. And vice versa. The scholar said, if you are this obedient to your father, you will see the punishment in the dunya. Before the after.
You will see the punishment in the dunya before the after
another study which might be very, very strange, okay.
One of the doc mentioned that
a father was always making the art to one of his sons, in particular one. So they asked him why in particular, this person, this child, you have many of them. He said, we went in the bad year. Yeah. And he bedroo people they do. I don't know what's better. Yeah. And he they're out in the desert.
Bedouins Yeah. In the desert. Okay. And they like they were like shepherds, they have camels and,
and sheep, etc. So he said one time he said, I used to have a problem in urinating,
urinating. And one time,
I felt that I was about to die because I cannot urinate.
Yes, and then I came to a conclusion that I'm dying because I cannot pass unit
yet. And the My children, they were just helpless and say, just make the Shahada, etc.
He said this son, this son took me aside.
took me to one of the tenants took me aside. And he said to his children, leave us alone.
And he started he took my clothes off. And he started to suck my private part in order to what? In order to force the urine out.
Yeah, so he started to suck the private part of his father's
to take what the urine out?
Yes. Obviously the urine won't be what?
in his mouth. Yeah. And he said, until I was saved
until I was saved, because of what my son did to me.
Yeah. And he said this, I will never forget it for my son. Obviously, my dear brothers and sisters, this is nothing compared to what the parents do do to the child.
agree or not? Yeah. Yeah. And if you mentioned this maybe to the parents and you say to them, if your son if your son
is having this problem, yeah. Would you do that? They will say of course we will do that. Will if you ask the mother and as my father Rahim, Allah Tada. used to say, he used to say look at the end, the mercy that Amontillado put in the heart of the mother towards her children. He says look at it.
Yes, rationally. She cleans the nappies. And she touches what
she touches the suffocation of her children is that trauma when she cleans them? Yeah.
And she's happy
When she does that, is that true or not?
Yeah. And if her son has a problem in deification Yeah, Mathurin, she will be, she will be crying all the night. And she is what? Making the other Allah, Allah, Allah makes him suffocates. And when he dedicates, she cleans him and she feels happy, that something coming out of it, what is it felt dedication?
Yeah, and she cleans that wide, she's happy. And then she just washes her hands. And then with the same hand that she cleaned her son, yeah, she will eat.
he said, if you look at it, rationally doesn't work. This is the one that you use to what? To clean the deification of your son. And you use the same hand To what?
To have food. I agree. But this is the mother. This is the mother. And that's why when that man came to me with no help and said to him that my mother doesn't.
Yeah, and it doesn't relieve herself, except when she is sitting on my back. Yeah. Have I done enough for her? Yeah. Have I compensated her for what she used to do? For me? Yeah, when I was a child, he said no, no, because when she was doing good, when you were a child, she was doing good while she was what happy and she wants you to, to live more and more agree. But when you are doing it now, you said when she is going to stop this and or maybe when she is going to die? And then I am relieved from this?
Yeah, this is this is your any
marijuana law enable us My dear brothers and sisters to look after our parents. One of the very strange cases a judge said
I think in Makkah, he said two elderly people came. And they have a dispute.
And the dispute was taken to the court.
He said that is the most any strange disputes that I came across as a judge been working as a judge for a number of years.
One of them was cutting his mother. She was very, very old. Like in a in a in a small box. Yeah. And
they put her between them. Yes. And those two brothers, they want the judge to judge between them on what
who is eligible to look after his mother. Everyone was disputing. And no one gave up his right. No one he said oh helaas Mashallah, my brother will look after her as he volunteered Alhamdulillah and I will visit her between now and then none of which maybe all of us do this. He said, No, no, no, I should look after her. I want her to be in my house. And the other again, no, no, no, no, no, I don't want her to be in my house. They said no, no, I will look after her better. The other person said no, no, no, I will look after her better. They were disputing they said
then we need to go to a judge to judge between us who will What?
Look after her.
A few weeks ago, I had the case.
I had so many similar cases. Yeah.
The father passed away was a bit old 70 plus the he left his wife and the number of children
look at this. They said to their mother.
Every single one of us is responsible to look after you according to his What? his share of the inheritance after that he is not obliged to look after you.
the the lady who called me to Yanni
to discuss this case with me, she said the first son after he finished in the period, he said
Halas Leave me alone. Yeah, go to the other side. The other son said no, I can't look after her. Yeah. And he said no, you don't need to look after her. Then the other
looked after her and said, Yes, I will look after her. Yes. In a period where when I maintain her that will be equal to my share in the what? inheritance may be technically may be technically this has a point. Yeah. But is this the way they treat their mother?
Yeah. Is this the way that they treat their mother somehow? Anyway, we had so many cases similar to this. So what I'm saying My dear brothers and sisters, that as we said they've been a bass Allah, Allah, Allah Allah who said, when you have your parents, you have two doors to Jeanette. two doors to Jenna.
If you lose one of them, you lost one of the doors to Jenna. Yeah. So before you lose those two gentlemen, my dear brothers and sisters and all of you are young, and I am advising you before you regret to use these doors to dinner and have supper with your parents. I know. I am a parent myself. I know that some parents are difficult. I know this.
Yeah, I know this.
And there is obviously there is a cultural difference. That is true. Yeah. And anyway, we know Jani the rest of this but at the end of the day, as a legend Allah says What about a buka Allah boo Illa Yahoo will be lonely Dania
Allah della combined between what? commanding people to be what?
obedient to Him worshiping Him alone and what? righteous to their parents. In the IRA, the IRA, we mentioned that the ISS was saying and in Santa bydd. Yeah, was saying, as we have said previously, that we enjoy and and and, and commanded and we said that it is, it has a meaning.
That is further that is wider than what we commanded.
Yeah, we commanded is further than that, by okay bhiwani de here Sanna, then Allah Allah Allah says hemella to Omaha, Omaha, WA to Kota, as it was, he said that what Allah Allah mentioned the mother here and in many other verses, why? Because there are, what the right of the mother is what
Yeah, the right of the mother is what greater by and as you know, in the Hadith, that man who came to the prophet SAW, Selim said Who is the most deserving one of my kindness, the proper size seven said your mother, your mother, than your mother, and then your father fight. Some people say some people say that
maybe that that the man might be in some cases
he might look after his father because his father maybe is the source of sustenance, provision, he is the one who is going to, he is going to inherit it from his father and so on. So he might neglect his mother, or he becomes not
subconsciously attached to his father, so he might forget his mother.
Yeah. So that's why Allah Allah, Allah says, your mother. Yeah, the prophesize lm says your mother. Yeah. And you don't
forget her. Despite Don't forget her because you became more attached to your father because of other reasons. Yeah. Well, I'll say that inside of you any day. He hemella Tomoko ha, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, ha.
his mother birth him with con chip. This color said that his mother bears him with hardship. During What? A during? Not from the beginning of the handle. But after maybe the third month by Yeah, you know, it is not the end. Yeah, big issue. Yeah. They said because a modular Anna says in sort of, rough, by
fella matassa Hamlet, Hamlet, cotton farmer what we found a mass palette. from Africa. That means
When she bought the head a child and the child, yeah, and it became the fetus became three plus months. Oh, yeah. Then she started to feel the pain of the, the, or the hardship of the pregnancy. Bye. That this or that is not a big issue. The issue is
that at least for six months, the mother was bearing so many hardships and difficulties because of what
because of the pregnancy
by because of her child.
Yeah. And she was Jani during that time. During that time, she was waiting for the moment, her son or her child comes to this life. And the moment as many mothers have said, Yeah, so Hannah Allah, when she gives birth to her the child that
because the ISS wah wah wah, I told her and she delivered him. Yeah. In hardship in a state of hardship.
They say that the strongest pain and human being Yes, a natural pain not Yani torture law. The strongest pain a human being can witness or can experience by is what is the pain of delivery? delivering the baby? And the pain that is maybe equal to it? Is what?
No, no, no. Doctor.
If they say when a stone passes through the tube between the kidney and
The under bladder? Yeah. When the stone passes it through the kidney? Yeah. And the bladder. And that tube? I don't know, who had experienced that in his life. I have experienced it in Jani a few times because I had this problem.
On believeable pain.
Unbelievable pain. Yeah.
And if you want to, I want to describe it to you. Imagine that there is a soul. Yeah. So and that soul is cutting your
flesh. Back and forth.
Back and forth. That is the pain of what when a stone passes through that tube.
Yeah. And I remember when I experienced that any pain. Okay. I could not sleep for the entire night for the entire night. And I became tired around Johnny three o'clock.
Of course, from the beginning. Because of the the pain, the severity of the pain. You keep vomiting.
Yeah, you keep vomiting until you vomit everything until the liquid of the stomach comes out. Because the pain is so severe.
Yeah, so severe that you cannot even bear it. And sometimes, yeah, I remember when when I was taken to the hospital. I vomited in the in the car. Yeah. And in the hospital.
Look, you are a dignified person. Yanni. Ha ha Paula bell. You just walk in the hospital like this. So how am I like, I don't want to give a bad example and you don't care about anything because you are living in a different world because of the pain.
Yeah, I don't want to continue in describing the pain for you because it's so horrible. Unbelievable. Yeah, unbelievable. That is the natural pain. They say that the pain of the delivery. When the mother gives birth to her child is that pain is so painful, so painful. Hama lotto amo Kuru ha wah wah to call her.
She burns him in hardship for
Seven months. Yeah, seven months. And what? Yeah. And when she delivered him, she delivered him in pain and with hardship.
And maybe our mothers, our sisters can describe the pain they go through during these seven or six months. Yep. And as my mother may Allah Allah Allah preserve her. She says that
is producing another body. So that body is eating the body of the mother.
Because that body is being formed. another human being is being formed. By what? by the body of another human being. Yeah. Okay.
This is Jani. Of course. Yeah. Annie, this is just not a profound description of what the mothers go through. When they give when when when they burn their children and they give birth to their children. Yes. But because of this, because of this, Allah Allah Allah gave mothers Yeah, this importance and this right and this is the status. Yeah. And we mentioned that the stories are that of those men who came to once to Omar, another man too, even and so on so forth. And how the the the righteous people used to look after their mothers. Yeah.
How mela Tomoko ha wa toccata. us, Yanni, even as my mother said that some hannula look at this big when
the mother gives birth to her son
and she hears the
noise of her son. Yeah. And she just looks at him, she forgets about all the pain she went through in these six months.
Just by what, by hearing the voice or the noise of her a child or looking at him, yeah, she forgets about what all these difficulties that she went through.
And then after that, obviously, obviously, it is a natural inclination shouldn't be a natural inclination, as we have said yesterday, last time, that the person should look after his parents and in particular look after his mother.
Yeah, this is the nanny part of being what being thankful to the person who what who was the main reason for your existence in this life, let alone that he is
he went through so many difficulties, yes, in order to bring you to this life. Okay. Anyway.
Yeah, nice to have him I was planning to just to go through the all the items that we have read today, but we started to speak about this. And
we need to stop here. I prefer always to speak about any Islamic topic in a natural way, not in academic way. Because the natural discussion is more fruitful than the academic discussion. Yeah. And part of making any Islam as an organic religion is to discuss it in this way, especially when we come through it that are very relevant to our life. So we live by Yeah, we live by the Quran we do not just understand call an as the may be orientalist, understand the Quran and they do not put it into practice. We are allowed Allah Allah to make us among those who read and who listened and those who benefit from what they have read and what they have listened to.
And we asked a lot Delilah to make the call and
as an evidence and forehand for us on the Day of Resurrection, and not have your hand against us. On the day of the election, or solo lost a lot of talent.
Whether it was like big money
