Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh we welcome you all to another session we ask Allah Jalla wa ala to make it beneficial. I mean, leaving the lab Today we will carry on with the six Jews. Yesterday we touched a little bit on the fifth Jews and we mentioned that in the fifth Jews Allah Allah Allah mentions a lot of ikem halal and haram a lot of fifth hemosol in to do with marriage to do with husband and wife living together, divorce a little bit, etc. So if you want to go through those you can go through the fifth juice. We then started in the sixth juice we mentioned a little bit about the story of Musa alayhis salaam Isa Ali Salaam and the messengers of Allah Allah Allah
Milla Today we will carry on in the sixth juice, similar to mA EDA. ask Allah Allah Allah to make it beneficial. The first story we want to touch on is the story of the covenant that Allah Allah Allah took with when we saw it. Allah Allah, Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah basically took a covenant with binary slightly and he ordered them to do certain things, even speaks about this covenant and how they broke it so many times and what happened after that. Salam or Aleikum? Wa Alaykum wa salam, O Allah Kat,
how are you Shannon? hamdulillah all well, how are you?
Alhamdulillah I'm very well I hope all the viewers are well.
hamdulillah you were saying you were speaking about the first verse. Yes, I was speaking about the story we want to touch on today in Surah. Merida, Allah, Allah Allah one of the stories he mentioned, he speaks about the covenant that he took with Ben we saw a while ah ha de la homie falcoda. Nice. He allegedly wanna audit them to do certain things. And he mentioned how on many occasions they broke this covenant and they committed sin. For me What stands out is when a mandala Allah says Femi manok, the mythical moku for him, be it Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah says,
foreigners who have been mimaki will be speaking about the verses and how allegedly, Allah gave them the scriptures, even mentions due to sin. They forgot part of the Scripture. They forgot what Allah taught them. Some of them have a city mentioned. And it is actually also mentioned that even miss roadworthy, a loved one who says this, that when a person commits a sin, this causes him to forget knowledge that he learned this Yes, he's referring to Islamic knowledge. But it doesn't prevent it also from being some beneficial knowledge you learned in the dunya. So from this verse, For me, what stood out is that when it comes to the knowledge, you've learned, what you've gained, especially
when you, you know, you want to learn Islamic knowledge, you should remember that sin actually prevents you from learning this knowledge and whatever you've learned, it can also cause you to forget as Allah, Allah, Allah said about when we say he
is a man or woman or law, he lived our reality, because knowledge, knowledge is light. And that light cannot be given to a person who's constantly sinning. So a person who sins so when we sit, I think, what are the important lesson that I take from that is that I need to attend to Allah subhanho wa Taala every time I send I regret it sincerely intend never to commit that sin again. Because ultimately, we all have the sons of Adam commit sins and they do wrong deeds. So we've always got to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah,
Allah, Allah azza wa jal and says that and I took one look at the analog meter carbenes for him and when Allah Subhana, Allah took the covenant from Ben who is ill, if May Allah nupepa
wirkkala, who in Lima and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and indeed I am with you, come to masala if you are to establish the sala de tu musica and to give these account, what are meant to be illusory wiser to move to the Law Center, and if you are to believe in my messages and give Allah subhanho wa Taala, a goodly loan
allows you kind of what Allah mentions all of these things. And then later on when he says that they broke the covenant, then he says, you had the phone and kalama and Milady they are changing the words from the places. So there were certain words that were in certain places in the Torah, and they would change these words around to suit their own desires, whims and fancies. So we also kind of want to add a spoke about what the income or the covenant entails. He spoke about Salah as occur and he spoke about them helping the messengers etc. But when you spoke about breaking the covenant, then he spoke about how they were changing the Scripture. You had before now, Kelly Malmo they want
us to have them in Maluku.
And they forgot some of that which they were reminded of. So, there are certain deeds that are worse than leaving of your Salah and not giving your sucker etc. When you go go to changing the level of changing the scripture that Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed, then that is a grave grave grave sin. So this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala from what I deduced from this didn't mention they perform not the lack of the performance of Salah etc because there's something even further that they've gone to, which is called for and disbelief in Allah subhanho wa Taala saying that outright rejection when they change the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, my point being here today that
we need to remember that no matter how grave a sin that we've committed, is trying never to justify it. Because ultimately when you committed once, twice, thrice, five times 10 times you begin to think that it's okay. It doesn't matter and then you start justifying it from the Scripture, or it doesn't matter Salah is not nobody said that you have to perform it on time. It Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Solitaire kanatal Mini Nikita makuta you know Salah is written and at a specific time. So
my uh you know, I think it's important for us to never to justify something wrong that we've done rather admit that I've done something wrong, or Allah forgive me because in that way, you have a chance at the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala whereas in the other scenario, you actually changing scripture to suit your desire woman fancy.
You know, as you correctly mentioned, the verse you have a phone and Kelly man, a lovely one. So you have a memento Kenobi. And you mentioned a solid point, that when you make a mistake, don't try and justify it. To Hanalei you find people sometimes they make a mistake, they want to justify it and sometimes they have to lie they have to, you know, give a wrong interpretation of the best thing never stop state always carries on and on and on and on, and will ever be like could take a person out of the fold of Islam We ask Allah Allah Allah to protect us. Moving on to the next story. Imagine Allah briefly speaks about Isa Ali Salaam, then he speaks about Musa alayhis salaam, a
legend awarenesses that Musa alayhis salam when he told his people you are COVID hold on Palm Desert ality Qatar Bella hula comm Oh my people talking to when we slide addressing them into the lands that have been promised to you allegedly Allah has promised these lands for you, all you have to do is enter. But when we saw that he refused to listen or obey the commands of Allah and the messenger Musa alayhis salam and they didn't enter. What stood out for me is Allah Allah Allah mentioned after they wanted to sit back they didn't want to go in. He says Allah julienne Amina la Vina Hakuna and am Allahu Allah he met
two men from amongst them just to be told when we saw him that just enter the city into the doors of the city. In those days, the cities were quite small, and you would find that they were protected with like a wall and they used to have their own doors, etc. Maybe not a physical door. It could be a physical doorway anymore in the law. My point being Allergan, Lavanya says how these two men told them just to enter after that Allah, Allah Allah, Allah will grant you victory. Look at how when it came to a good deed, they doubted they were unsure. And Allah Jalla wa Allah teaches us from these two men, that when you want to commit a good when you want to do something good, and you're
doubting, you're not sure, get up and do it. Don't carry on thinking thinking and thinking about it, or the whole animal, just into the city into the door favor the hell to move a macromolecule if you enter you will be successful you will be victorious and don't forget what Allah if I work alone in quantum meaning Don't forget you and your trust in Allah, Allah Allah.
Yes, you know, my point was very close to that actually. So mazarin Salatu was Salam is telling them to enter into the city that Allah subhanho wa Taala has commanded you enter into this city, and they were refusing to do so. And they actually said, in London that hula about them, their movie hub will never enter into the city, so long as they are within the inhabitants or within and later on the winds to the point of saying, if we have until one book you and you go for katella in hoonah Garden, you go and fight we are sitting here and we are not going to do anything. So Allah subhanho wa Taala had commanded them but let's take a look at how he had saved them from all of the difficulty
hardship from your own from being enslaved, etc, being punished under humility. And now they just being asked for one simple thing and they don't want to do it. Sometimes we have opportunity
He's in our lives and they began to make conditions. So no, I'll only do it if they come out of it will only do it if you you and Moosa, you and you up, you can't fight it that same Bob had saved them. So they began to make conditions. Now sometimes in our lives, we have opportunity after opportunity, Allah subhanho wa Taala sends us yet we waiting for it to come from a certain door a certain way, it must only come from here and then I'll accept it. But that is not for us to choose. That's what Allah subhanho wa Taala we've got to make an effort. And wherever it comes from, we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we go according to His plan, you know, we don't keep trying on
only one specific door and keep knocking on that door, even though it's not opening. I think this is important in various facets of life. So you find the person who's getting married, for example, and or they want to get married and they focused on one person, they don't want Allah subhanho wa Taala. Since then, so many different people they don't want they don't exist. And then in business, for example, you work very hard at one project, but Allah Subhana Allah gives you easily from another, start working on that which has been made easy for you. Because perhaps there is no goodness in this one. Perhaps there is goodness try at it. But work also at this one, don't give up the opportunities
that come your way solely because you are focused on one
such wise words may Allah subhanahu Allah grant us all the ability to do that which pleases Him and to make the most of all opportunities he gives us. The very next story Allah Allah Allah mentions is the story of the two sons of Adam alayhis salam, basically, Adam alayhis salaam had two children, one of them was pious, and he allegedly wala accepted his good deeds, his sacrifice, etc. The other one was not pious, so one became jealous of the other, and he ends up killing him. For me, what stands out is when he wanted to kill him, we find in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentions that as is mentioned hobby he wanted to kill hobby, or in the biblical
scriptures, the English scriptures they refer to the story as the story of Abel and Cain, or sola, sola wasallam says, for every person who kills after this, the first son of Adam will have a sin or a portion of the sin. Why? Because he taught people he was the first person to teach people how to kill. And the benefit I take from this is when it comes to our good deeds. Yes, we should do good deeds, and we should teach others to do good deeds. So as the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, when you do a good deed, you are rewarded, when you teach somebody else to do a good deed, they are rewarded, and you in turn are also rewarded for teaching them and your rewards are
not decreased in any way. And if this person has to continue, the chain continues, the same when it comes to evil. If you teach somebody bad, you teach them how to sin. You teach them things that displease a larger lavallette you will be sinful, they will be sinful, and everybody they teach. So your chain carries on, you know, even you find people after they've passed away, they're unable to do good deeds, but because they've taught so many people bad and evil, they carry on racking up these sins, we ask Allah Allah Allah to protect us. So a solid, solid, solid point there. Because, you know, a lot of times we tend to share something wrong on social media. And recently, you know,
there was a shift talking about someone whose family contacted him and said, You know, there's someone who had an account on tik tok, they were putting up, perhaps, you know,
messages or videos that are not so appropriate. And now that this person has passed on, those videos remain people are watching them, seeing them, I don't think even the person who's dead would be wanting that to happen. So your life online can continue far beyond your life. In this world, you may have passed on and you're receiving the sin of people watching the videos, the evil that you've put up there, something wrong, encouraging people to do bad things, and you are receiving the sin and the punishment of that, why? Why would you want that to happen? So I think it's a very, very important that people pay attention to this. You know, it's a grave matter. And on the other hand,
if you've got something good on that people are watching it, people are benefiting from it. You are also benefiting once you're in your grave. So why not share that which is beneficial. And ultimately, when you start sharing your evil deeds, then it's like as if you are proud of them and you don't care about how Allah subhanho wa Taala feels about those those deeds. So I think we need to focus on this
It's a very, very important point.
Jim cornette would like to mention on this Yes.
Yes, yes. So the two children of Adam have qabil killed hubby. And later on once he's sitting cane is sitting in his watching his brother's body, he doesn't know what to do with it. It comes along these two crows and they start to fight with each other. And the one CRO kills the other and then buries the others body. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says for the earth, Allahu Allah Yep, had to fill up the urea okay for you worry. So
he, so Allah subhanho wa Taala since the CRO searching on the land, so that he has to fill out the urea who so that he may show him how to bury or hide the body of his brother.
I find it amazing that came actually says yeah, where you let her I just took an akuna mithila hodel work and I not able to be like this crow. But why are you so happy so I can bury the body of my brother at this point in his life after he had killed his brother. He's literally learning from an animal Allah subhanho wa Taala sent a bird to teach him perhaps in this and perhaps I say perhaps because I may be wrong in this day is a lesson for us to learn that he is closer at that juncture, to you know, the the base desires that take a person towards more of an animalistic state than he is to his human nature which is understanding forgiving,
not jealous, etc. But he's becoming more of that that person will inclines towards his base desires of murder etc. Sometimes we can even say that this is not even a desire because not all human beings desire murder, but here he was an Allah subhanho wa Taala was teaching him to an animal because, you know, perhaps you had reached that level. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. So I found that amazing that he actually learned from an animal at that juncture in his life.
You know, you mentioned a very interesting point. There was somebody who taught me earlier on in life and they were saying a lot of inventions that people you know, we learn today we find that people got the idea from animals. If you look at a Falcon, you'll see how Allah Allah Allah has designed it, he has created it so that it can move through the air, then you look at the design on certain aeroplanes you find people took that same design and put it there and try to mimic it or you know, make it similar so that it could move through. And indeed, in Allah's creation, there are many signs we can you know, ponder over learn from and benefit.
Absolutely. Absolutely. Jana, moving on to the last story, the story of Isa alayhis salam. In fact when we look in from the third Jews, even in the six Jews we find that the beginning of La Jolla while I mentioned the story of a Salah he said I'm in the middle again he mentioned the story of recently Salah towards the end again he speaks about a Salah his Salaam and how he called the people to worship Allah. For me what stood up stood out is Allah Allah Allah says speaking about Isa and his mother, allegedly Allah says a fellow YouTuber named Lola he was Sophie Luna hula hula
hooping Amalia MA in law school. He sallallahu Sallam is only a messenger. Merci hibino Maria Maria de la Sol adhaalath communicability heroes they were messengers who came before who passed on what Maha Savita, can I kulani both of them used to eat food. Allah Allah Allah is calling us those who are reading the Quran. Those who argue when it comes to the story of Sally selam you know Allah Allah Allah is not attacking to say no the silly or the this he's calling them to use their intellect is Ali Salaam is a messenger. Look for something similar. They were messengers who came before and they passed away. Okay, go a step further. Isa alayhi salam, the fact that he is not a
lot as we believe. He used to eat food him and his mother, Allah, Allah, Allah is calling you to think and ponder over the fact that if there is somebody who's eating food, if there is somebody who needs to drink, surely he can't be worshipped. What stands out for me is how a large in the world and not only in this verse, but in many verses of the Quran. You know, he doesn't insult even people who may go against his commandments. He calls them with a you know, a beautiful verse and he calls them to use their intellect ponder over it come to the realization and the results by using the mind Allah Allah Allah has given you
so hard Allah Subhana Allah, the hadith of Rasulullah saw Selim actually says
as possible or at Aminullah, there is nobody more patient upon harm than Allah in the home lead the owner what they call out a son to him, or who else zumo I see him and he's the one who gives them the risk and afia meaning, the safety of body and mind, etc. So Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to sustain them, even though they're going against these commands, even though they defy him or they are calling a son out to him. from Canada. That's an amazing point that you raised the children of Allah subhanho wa Taala says lepad confer levena call in Allahu Allah mercy Humayun, most definitely those who have disbelieved, said Indeed Allah.
Call in Allah have mercy from nobody, and Indeed, Allah is the Messiah, the Son of Mary, right?
So they actually called Isa this the God that should be worshipped. And they claimed that he was three of three, etc. one of three, I don't know which one it is, but basically one part of three. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says we're calling mercy who Yeah, yeah, Benny, sorry. Yeah, Benny, Isla Budo, la de la. And he says it obon is in worship Allah, may Allah and Europe. So the very object that they were calling out to who happened to be Lisa Liu Salatu. Salam was worshipping Allah and acknowledged Allah. So this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says that into Bala and Medina to be Roman and Medina, Tebow. Those who were followed, will claim that they are free of those who
followed them because they would ascribe things to them that are not really part of the character, characteristic and nature. So the same goes for our belief in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, as much as we love him, and we hold him in the highest regard, we should never ever raise him to the level of godhood because the minute we do that, we have no different to the other sets and the other people who have raised they ambia to the level of God would.
You know, you mentioned a solid point even when it comes to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam as he mentioned in the Hadith, don't raise me above the position that I deserved. I am only a servant and a slave of Allah, Allah Allah. So this teaches us that even when it comes to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is we respect him he is he was the best of creation, the best that Allah Allah ever created. But he did not reach, you know, godhood he did not order people to worship him, you know, to exceed the limits when it comes to him. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Salalah
Shan Is there anything else you'd like to mention?
Allah Al Hamdulillah? I think I've had a good session. But Shall we take some comments, look at a few comments that people have made.
We can see there are a few.
Speaking a lot of people were saying, indeed, a legend of Allah is the one who created I saw the same comment about five times. So I thought maybe I made a mistake while I said something.
I doubt because as I was following quite closely, Hangul, I don't think there was a mistake here. hamdulillah
I wanted to ask about the story of the Jews in chapter four verse 161, where some food was made unlawful to them based on based on the wrongdoing they did and the wrong sorry, I don't actually have information about that. So I'm going to remain silent. Allah subhana wa Taala knows best
um, yeah, we can we can sorry go on gunship. When it comes to this fit him aside, we find a larger lower left he there was certain rulings that the previous nations may have had, for example, when the clothes became dirty previous nations they had to cut out the dirty part. And you know, the whole garment would be ruined. As for this oma Allah, Allah, Allah made it easy for us. We just have to wash it off. Yes, there were certain things that maybe people from the previous nations were not allowed to eat and we are allowed to eat them. So we should remember that when we follow the Quran, we follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we as Muslims should know what's
halal for us and what's haram and what we are not allowed to consume. Yes, and I think it's important to mention here I just saw someone mentioning something about how early salat wa salam was a Muslim, etc. It's important for us to know that the MBR AlLahi wa Salatu was Salam we believe that they are all Muslim in and we believe they all submitted to Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why
Allah subhanho wa Taala says McKenna Ibrahim yahudi and wala salani and what kind of hanifa muslimah Ibrahim was not Jewish neither was he Christian but he was a righteous pious monotheism, monitor theistic,
Muslim and believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he submitted himself to rumblings that you are jealous. So it's important for us to to mention this because sometimes people feel that, you know, the ASAP belongs to the Christians, the Jesus belongs to the Christians etc.
Yes, as we mentioned before the principles the main message of all MBR Aleikum Salatu was Salam was one worship Allah and for us teaching you or giving you the message, we are not asking you for any reward any payment, you know, anything material we are just calling you to worship one Allah.
Zack Allah Hara Shekinah shall we call it today? I think so.
Okay, barakallahu li walakum wa Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
