Smart mannerheim hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah subhana wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Welcome to the class of the sciences of the Quran. Today inshallah we will start with f0 Surat Al Baqarah. After we talked about surah, Al Fatiha we are moving in Sharla to Surat Al Baqarah Al Baqarah in Arabic means the cow and this is the name which was given to this surah So, here we have an issue, which is the names of the Surah Surah Al Fatiha Surat Al Baqarah Surah Al e Imran And the rest of the sutras. We already said that we have 114 soldiers of the Quran. So who gave these names to the sutras? Was it the companions of the messenger sallallahu wasallam?

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

Was it the scholars after them? Was it the prophet SAW Selim himself? So,

00:01:01--> 00:01:28

in this issue, some scholars said all the names of the service, they were also given by the messenger sallallahu wasallam. We know that the order of the ayat it was from the messenger sallallahu Sallam everybody agreed that these I add in order because Allah subhana wa Taala instructed the prophet SAW Selim to do it this way, and the messenger Salaam, he himself instructed the companions to put each ayah in its place, then

00:01:30--> 00:02:00

the order of the sutras Surah Fatiha then Surah Baqarah, then tsereteli Imran, now, some scholars said even this order was from the messenger sallallaahu salam, and we said this is the correct opinion. Now, we come to the other issue, which is the names of the soldiers. Some soldiers they have more than one name, like soda elytra. It was called Sora of the children of Israel. In addition to tsereteli, SRA. We have surah Toba surah Toba is called also surah as safe.

00:02:02--> 00:02:46

So rattle and fowl, it is called surah. Al, Al. So these names some scholars said even these names were given by the messenger sallallahu sallam. But if you call it in another name, that's not a big deal. It's unlike when you change the order of the ayat, whether you call it sort of Baccarat or you call it sort of Sora Tamron. Scholars did not really care much about it as they discuss it because when you start reading the Quran, you don't say Surah Al Fatiha. Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. And when you say well upon lien, I mean, Surat Al Baqarah Bismillah R Rahman Rahim you don't do that. You move ahead, you go on straight while at balling Ameen. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Alif Lam me. So

00:02:46--> 00:02:56

whether you say it is from the messenger of science alum, or from the companions, or from the scholars later on, that's fine. However, however, most of the soldiers

00:02:58--> 00:03:11

they were given the names, their names were given by the messenger salallahu alayhi wasallam. Most of the soldiers if not all of them, they were given the names by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Why

00:03:13--> 00:03:14

can you tell me any evidence?

00:03:17--> 00:03:24

Like who named Surah Al Baqarah with this name? So Rebecca, who called Sora Talia and run with that name so rotten, Emma.

00:03:27--> 00:03:30

Do you remember any prophet SAW Selim? What's the evidence?

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

Yeah.

00:03:39--> 00:03:56

Yeah, it's divided in that fashion. This companions used to say we start with three then five, then seven. That's true. But they did not say we start with Sora Baqarah. Then Sora Talia Moran, we start with the first surah second Surah that's related to the order of the soldiers. Now the names of the soldiers themselves.

00:03:59--> 00:04:00

Okay.

00:04:06--> 00:04:25

Very good. Okay. So, so, in this Hadith, the Hadith of the virtues of some sources, when the prophet SAW Selim says, Whoever read this surah it will get so on sorry about that means the name was given by the messenger science Allah, do we have this? applied here in Surah? Baqarah.

00:04:26--> 00:04:33

Do you remember any surah any Hadith about naming Surah Baqarah by the messenger science alum.

00:04:39--> 00:04:41

There are many, many a hadith.

00:04:43--> 00:04:43

Now,

00:04:44--> 00:04:55

a man came to the messenger of science lm and he wanted to marry a woman but he did not have money. So he asked him, do you have anything from the Quran? And the man said, Yes, I have Surat Al Baqarah.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

Now who told the companion about the name the messengers

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

selam it was known at that time. So this is an evidence that this name was given by the messenger of science and then my Surah Baqarah I memorize certain Baqarah the prophets I seldom called this surah with this name many times. And this comes to the second issue, which is the virtues, what are the virtues of Surah Al Baqarah? What are the virtues of surah? Al Baqarah?

00:05:33--> 00:06:09

Very good. Who said that barpeta Salim shaytan de acaba beighton, coffee Surat Al Baqarah. So, he gave that name. If, if the companions did not know what sort of the prophet SAW Selim is talking about, they would ask him, which surah are you talking about? He told them, whoever it so that the banker and his house shaytan will not come close will not approach will not enter this house. That means, the prophet SAW Selim is the one who gave the name for Surah democra. So, this is one of the virtues another virtue for Surah Baqarah by dirty Torah to Bukhara

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

because it's so long.

00:06:15--> 00:06:16

What blessings?

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

Don't just read from the paper? What blessings?

00:06:24--> 00:06:25

What's the blessing of reading Surat Al Baqarah?

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

Yes,

00:06:32--> 00:06:34

it will intercede on the Day of Judgment very good. How?

00:06:36--> 00:06:39

Is there a hadith or it's an opinion or what?

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

It will intercede on the day of judgment?

00:06:44--> 00:06:45

Yes.

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

Go ahead.

00:06:50--> 00:06:56

It has many rulings. That's true. So, you will you learn the rulings by reading Surah Baqarah.

00:06:57--> 00:07:13

The prophet SAW Selim said across Quran now at Shafi anioma pmle sahibi. read the Quran, it will intercede for the one who reads it on the Day of Judgment crowd as Robin read the two lights, what are the two lights and bacara and Alabama?

00:07:14--> 00:07:24

These are the two lights Azzawi and Baqara and Alabama, they will come like clouds on the Day of Judgment covering the one who reads them. So this is again,

00:07:26--> 00:07:32

and evidence that this is the virtue of sort of democracy. It will cover you it will help you it will intercede for you on the Day of Judgment.

00:07:36--> 00:07:46

Its protection. As you said you wanted your house to be protected. You wanted yourself to be protected, read surah baqarah and you will be protected. That's what the messenger Salim said.

00:07:50--> 00:07:51

It's protection against magic.

00:07:53--> 00:08:02

That's what the prophet SAW Selim said. Al Baqarah Baraka, Manu, read Surah Baqarah there is a blessing, what type of blessing all types of blessings.

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

You read long surah you get the reward. Every letter you have then has an ad for each letter. And this will be multiplied and double.

00:08:13--> 00:08:20

You read long surah and you'll learn all the lessons and the rulings in it. This is another blessing

00:08:23--> 00:08:28

watarrka Hazara by not doing such by not reading Surah makara

00:08:29--> 00:08:32

there is a sorrow will be remorse.

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

It is a loss if you don't do that.

00:08:36--> 00:08:40

Well at the spothero obatala and the magician's cannot

00:08:42--> 00:08:46

overcome cannot beat this surah this surah is too strong

00:08:47--> 00:09:13

for the magicians. So if someone was afraid that people may harm him, people want to do something wrong for him. He can read sort of the mechanics protection because one ayah in this surah is the best day of the Quran. If you could see, Allah Allah Allah, if you read only one ayah, which is this is before you sleep, you'll be protected from the Shaitaan How about reading the entire surah?

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

So this surah is blessing.

00:09:17--> 00:09:23

These are few of the virtues that the messenger of science Allah mentioned and all of them are mentioned in the book. Yes.

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

But Allah.

00:09:28--> 00:09:29

Yes.

00:09:34--> 00:09:43

Yeah, if you don't read it, it's a loss. That's what the messenger Selim said. When you read it, you'll get the blessings. If you don't read it, it's a loss for you. Well,

00:09:46--> 00:09:49

again, all these are mentioned in the introduction for the surah in the book.

00:09:50--> 00:09:53

Now we are moving to the beginning of this surah

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

it starts with Elif

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

Did you read Surah Baqarah

00:10:03--> 00:10:04

anytime in your life?

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

That's how it starts right? Are you sure?

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

Are you sure?

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

Yes or no?

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

So why you are hesitated to say yes

00:10:18--> 00:10:19

Alif land.

00:10:21--> 00:10:23

Me What does it mean?

00:10:24--> 00:10:29

It has no meaning. So Allah put something in the Quran for nothing for no meaning.

00:10:33--> 00:10:34

What do you think? Yes?

00:10:36--> 00:10:41

Tafseer that Allah only knows. So there is meaning for it, but we don't know it.

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

What do you think?

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

So now we have more than Yes.

00:10:51--> 00:10:56

It was a challenge to the Arab. What do you mean by that? It's challenged challenge by Elif Lam Meem

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

lm

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

How do you translate this?

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

What do you think? Yes.

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

It is what?

00:11:11--> 00:11:13

There is a way to get your attention

00:11:14--> 00:11:16

by these letters.

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

So if I wanted to get your attention, I say

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

H I J.

00:11:29--> 00:11:29

Yes.

00:11:39--> 00:11:49

Okay, now notice Sora tillbaka is not the only surah that has this type of beginning. We have many soldiers. So as Maria

00:11:51--> 00:12:09

Saud, we have sort of a causal spazzy meme sort of to Shauna, the same thing. barsi me, we have Alif Lam, rostrata rod Alif Lam me song Sora telara. We have ministers have I mean?

00:12:10--> 00:12:26

We have many sort of stuff like that. So and it is different, sometimes hammy sometimes Alif Lam mean? Sometimes Alif Lam Meem sod. Sometimes I fly me Ma, sometimes calf heinsohn. So what's the meaning of these letters?

00:12:29--> 00:12:29

Allah.

00:12:34--> 00:12:35

Allah, Allah if Majid?

00:12:36--> 00:12:37

No,

00:12:38--> 00:12:52

no, actually, some scholars, they came and they gathered all the letters. In all these sources, they omitted the repeated ones, and they left only what's not repeated. And they came with statement.

00:12:53--> 00:13:00

Nelson Hakim la serata. This is a wise book or wise text. It has a definite secret.

00:13:02--> 00:13:14

Some scholars, they did that. But again, that does not answer the question. What's the meaning of these letters? Actually, scholars differed. They had four basic opinions, four major opinions.

00:13:15--> 00:13:31

In regards to this issue, what's the meaning of these letters? Some scholars, this is the first opinion some scholars said there is a meaning for it, whether it's the meaning of Allah, or it's the name of the surah, or it's an indication for the length of this oma.

00:13:32--> 00:13:47

So some scholars they said there is a meaning for these letters, whether it's the name of Allah, so Allah, He introduced himself in another way. And if Lam Meem, or Kapha answered all of them, they refer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Or

00:13:49--> 00:13:53

each letter like Elif Lam mean? It refers to

00:13:54--> 00:14:14

a number. And when you add all these numbers together, you will come to come up with a number, which is the length of this nation. So if this nation like the prophet SAW, Selim started before Hydra, and now it is 1427.

00:14:15--> 00:14:27

So if you add these numbers, you will come to like 15 1617, Allah Allah. Some scholars said, That's the meaning of these letters. It is an indication of the length of the amount of the Prophet size,

00:14:28--> 00:14:30

or it's the name of the surah.

00:14:32--> 00:14:37

It's the name of the Surah Surah Al Baqarah. Means surah Alif Lam, Meem.

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

But again, if you say this, there are other students with that name, so which one are we talking about? There are many surah starts with Hamming. So which one you're talking about? But anyway, that's the first opinion. The first opinion says there is a meaning for it. It is Alif Lam Meem but it has meaning. This is the first opinion. The second

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

pinion, it says it's alphabetical letters, and there is no meaning at all for it.

00:15:06--> 00:15:11

Now, again, in English, if you say hkc, what does that mean?

00:15:14--> 00:15:21

Be an SDF? What does that mean? Does it mean anything? Does it mean anything? No.

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

The same thing here, it doesn't mean anything.

00:15:26--> 00:15:27

It does not mean anything.

00:15:29--> 00:15:37

The third opinion, it says, there is a meaning for it, definitely, there is a meaning for it. But Allah knows that we don't know it.

00:15:42--> 00:15:48

Allah knows it, we don't know it. So there is a meaning for these letters. Allah knows it and we do not know it.

00:15:49--> 00:15:51

This is the third opinion.

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

The fourth and the last opinion, it says, we should not discuss this issue. Why Because Allah sent some ads for

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

challenge or

00:16:04--> 00:16:12

to test us, I add that we will not know the meaning of it. And this is one of them. So we should not discuss it. This is the fourth opinion.

00:16:14--> 00:16:31

Now remember, we're discussing specific issue, what's the meaning of the letter, many people they mix between two things, the meaning of it, and the purpose of it. Now the purpose of these letters, I agree the purpose of it, to challenge the arrow

00:16:32--> 00:16:38

to tell them, these are alphabetical letters, they are put together to

00:16:39--> 00:17:04

have this Quran, this miraculous Quran, try to do the same thing, put the alphabetical letters together, and make the same Quran and you will not be able to. So maybe the purpose of it is to challenge the atom. But the meaning of the letters themselves? Does it have a meaning or not? These are the opinions, four opinions. So which one do you go with? Which one do you think is the strongest opinion?

00:17:07--> 00:17:10

The third one, Allah knows the meaning of it.

00:17:15--> 00:17:19

Well, whatever you go with, you need to have an evidence.

00:17:21--> 00:17:27

And all the opinions are mentioned in the book. So you read the details. I believe the second opinion is the correct one.

00:17:28--> 00:17:30

It's alphabetical letters.

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

There is a purpose for them, but there is no meaning.

00:17:34--> 00:17:40

What's the meaning of it? You need an evidence? If you say there is a meaning but Allah knows it. What is the evidence for that?

00:17:41--> 00:17:47

If you say it's a name of Allah subhanho wa Taala what is the evidence for that? If you say it's the name of surah.

00:17:48--> 00:18:22

So it's up to you. Again, whatever you go with, you need an evidence for it. I believe it's only alphabetical letters just like any other letters. But it was put here to challenge the Arab to show them that the Quran therefore many times Allah subhanaw taala says, and Islam in Delhi, Calcutta, boo Tikka takita, this is the book no doubt, these are the ayat of the book. What does that mean? That means Allah Subhana Allah is reminding them that this book is established from these ayat from these letters.

00:18:24--> 00:18:28

But because Allah subhanaw taala put these letters together,

00:18:29--> 00:18:41

Allah came with this Quran. No matter how much you try with the same letters, you will not be able to do the same thing. So anyway, that's the issue about the letters of the Quran.

00:18:42--> 00:18:55

Now this is we move forward, where Allah says Valley Kalki taboo loughrea Buffy, who then limited that's the book. There is no doubt in it guidance for those who have piety.

00:18:58--> 00:19:06

Now, let's discuss it further Valley Kalki tabula rasa, this is the scripture where there is no doubt

00:19:09--> 00:19:16

if you read this ayah in the Quran, you will find three small dots on the top of it twice

00:19:17--> 00:19:25

Delhi Calcutta Bula right you have three small dots and then Fie over them also you have three small dots What does that mean?

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

Yes.

00:19:30--> 00:19:45

Yes, this is called lock tan Have you stopped whether at the first one or at the second one, whether you say Delhi Calcutta will arrive and then you say fy 18 or you say Delhi Calcutta volare, Buffy, who then

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

that's what we mean by Donna Bach, Stan, and if you open the program, you will see it, the three small dots over these two words. So we'll start with the first one, the allocatable array. This is the scripture

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

Whereas There is no doubt.

00:20:04--> 00:20:06

Whenever someone starts

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

a book,

00:20:09--> 00:20:40

in the preface he mentions, he acknowledged the efforts of his wife is his friend, the publishing company. He mentions that there were difficulties that it was difficult to come with this book, it took 234 years whatever. Here, when you read the Quran from the beginning, Allah tells you, this is the book. This is the scripture where there is no doubt. This is a powerful beginning for the Quran. And actually some people

00:20:41--> 00:21:02

they became Muslims only once they read this, because it's from Allah subhanaw taala if it's from human being, a human being will acknowledge his shortcomings but not Allah subhanaw taala there are no shortcomings in this book. So Allah is telling you, this is the book wherever there is no doubt. This is the Scripture. That's the true book. Lara, there is no doubt

00:21:04--> 00:21:07

in it, guidance to those who are pious,

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

if we stop at the first place, Delhi Calcutta Bala right this is the book where there is no doubt you continue in it there is guidance or in it guidance for those who are pious.

00:21:23--> 00:21:30

The second way to stop Lally Kalki tabula rasa Murphy that's the book. There is no doubt in it.

00:21:35--> 00:22:11

And then you continue who then lil Mata Ki, a guidance to those who are pious. Maybe you'll be confused but you need to go back again read it twice three times just to know the difference. This is another miracle of the Quran. If you say Delhi, Calcutta without a fee hood unlimited plan, it gives you a meaning. Or you say Delhi Calcutta volare buffet hotel, it gives you another meaning. So two meanings for the same area just depends on the way you stop on it. This is a miracle of the Quran. And the two meanings are very similar. But in the first let's go back the first

00:22:12--> 00:22:17

or the first time we stop dedicated to tabula rasa, this is the book there is no doubt

00:22:19--> 00:22:23

while and the second time you say there is the book, there is no doubt in it.

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

So and the first time

00:22:29--> 00:22:32

and the first time the doubt refers to

00:22:33--> 00:22:34

the book.

00:22:38--> 00:22:39

While in the second time

00:22:41--> 00:22:44

we say in it guidance in the book there is guidance.

00:22:46--> 00:22:52

So guidance was changed. And the second time and the first time we said there is no doubt.

00:22:55--> 00:22:57

I don't know if it's clear or not, you need to read it again.

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

And in order to understand it, we have a rule. This is a rule always in the Quran.

00:23:05--> 00:23:10

Here we have it. Look at this word, it

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

this preposition

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

it refers to what?

00:23:16--> 00:23:17

The Quran Why?

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

Why?

00:23:24--> 00:23:25

Why you said Quran?

00:23:33--> 00:23:35

What about here? any guidance?

00:23:37--> 00:23:38

Is it still the same?

00:23:42--> 00:23:45

What's the rule here? In general in language? Yes.

00:23:47--> 00:23:49

It goes back to the last noun.

00:23:50--> 00:24:26

Which is book. That's true. That's the rule. In the Quran. Always. When you want to interpret an eye, you have pronoun and you want to know, if you replace this pronoun with a noun with a name. Which name should you put, you put the last name, the last noun, which was mentioned before. That's the rule. in general. In most cases, there are some exceptions, but in general, that's how you interpret the Quran. So let's say here, this is the Scripture, whereas there is no doubt in it. In what

00:24:29--> 00:24:44

in what in Scripture, because it was the last noun mentioned in Scripture guidance to those who are pious. Try to see this way. Now let's move again to the second time when we stop. That's the book no doubt in

00:24:45--> 00:24:46

in the book,

00:24:47--> 00:24:50

a guidance to those who are pious.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

Did you see Did you notice the difference or not it when you say this is the book no doubt

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

In it guidance and when you say this is the book no doubt in it, a guidance to those who are pious Did you notice the difference or not yet?

00:25:09--> 00:25:18

It's a slight difference, but it is there that depends on how you stop. This is the book no doubt or this is the scripture no doubt in it.

00:25:19--> 00:25:30

So when you say no doubt, you stop then you move on in it guidance. The second time when you say this is the book no doubt in it, a guidance to those who are pious.

00:25:33--> 00:25:35

It depends on the way you stop on it.

00:25:36--> 00:25:38

Now, do you have to stop

00:25:40--> 00:25:40

in one of them?

00:25:42--> 00:25:47

Do you have to or you can read the entire tire without stopping.

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

What

00:25:52--> 00:25:53

you have to know

00:25:54--> 00:25:55

actually not you though

00:25:57--> 00:26:03

you can move on? How do you move on? You say this is the book no doubt in its guidance to those who are pious.

00:26:05--> 00:26:23

Maybe in English, it's difficult to translate because you have to choose but in Arabic. It's the same. This is the book value Calcutta volare, buffet Hotel in Makati, or Valley cricket avalara. The fee for that limited thing we have to reset. But it's the same we did not change anything. In English. If you want to

00:26:24--> 00:26:40

continue without stopping you have to determine this is the book no doubt in it guidance to those who are pious or this is the MOOC no doubt in it a guidance to those who are pious, you have to determine again this is another difference between the Arabic and the English translation.

00:26:43--> 00:26:45

Okay, now what do we learn from this ayah?

00:26:47--> 00:26:50

When Allah Subhana Allah says, This is the book no doubt.

00:26:53--> 00:26:54

Or this the book no doubt in it.

00:26:56--> 00:27:01

When Allah is telling you that this is my book, there is no doubt in it.

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

What does he want from you?

00:27:06--> 00:27:08

Listen exactly, only to listen.

00:27:10--> 00:27:22

Exactly to apply to be sure of what you have. So this is one of the lessons that we learn. This is the book no doubt. That means Do not be suspicious, do not question fulfill, obey.

00:27:25--> 00:27:35

Another lesson, we'll learn from it that the Quran from Allah subhanho wa Taala because Allah is telling you, there is no doubt do not suspect it. It is from Allah.

00:27:36--> 00:27:37

There is no doubt.

00:27:44--> 00:27:47

Another advantage, we'll learn another lesson

00:27:48--> 00:28:04

that when Allah tells you there is no doubt in it, that means there is no need for you to come and speak for the Quran to add to it to change to divert. It's not your job. There is no doubt that's it. It's clear, don't come and add

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

more things.

00:28:08--> 00:28:09

There is no doubt in it.

00:28:10--> 00:28:18

So the rulings are clear. You obey. You don't add or change or divert any meaning because there is no doubt in

00:28:19--> 00:28:25

these are a few lessons. And that's the tafsir that have series when you read the ayah and you derive the lessons from

00:28:26--> 00:28:27

these.

00:28:30--> 00:28:41

Now, when our last panel dialysis, there is no doubt in it, a guidance to those who are pious. What do you learn from this a guidance to those who are pious

00:28:43--> 00:28:46

This tells you that it may not be a guidance to everybody.

00:28:48--> 00:28:52

And this is true about the Quran. The Quran in general is a book of guidance.

00:28:53--> 00:29:07

The Quran is a book of guidance, but you know that sometimes people come with hostility and they show you the I didn't Allah in the Quran kill the disbelievers wherever you find them. Yes, Allah did also the Quran.

00:29:09--> 00:29:31

It preaches terrorism. It preaches mass murder, massacres, killing people. No, that's not the case. But when you take the Quran, you take that approach and you pick and choose only the if it's true, you will not be guided. In order for you to be guided from the Quran. You have to come with a sound heart with fairness.

00:29:32--> 00:29:46

Because that's what the law says. It's a guidance for those who are pious. If you're not pious, most likely, it's difficult to be guided with this Quran. So if you are if you if you have fewer bias you have

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

any kind of hostility, maybe the Quran will help you against Muslims. But if you are fair, the Quran also will help you will guide you. That's what we learn a book of guidance to those who are pious

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

Who are they? Now if we ask ourselves, are we pious? Of course everybody will say yes Mashallah, I am perfect Muslim. Allah mentioned a few characters here. Let's see these characteristics, do we meet them or not?

00:30:16--> 00:30:19

We have four is a guidance for those who are pious.

00:30:21--> 00:30:34

What are they? We have three more is describing them, then we have two is about the disbelievers. So these are sixth, then we have 13. About the hypocrites.

00:30:35--> 00:30:45

Four is only four is about the pious the believers, two is the disbelievers and 13 is about the hypocrites.

00:30:47--> 00:30:52

Why, why do we have so much about the hypocrites? Because they are the great danger?

00:30:53--> 00:30:58

They are the great danger. Now is this surah makansutra or Medina surah?

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

Why? Why it's Medina and so

00:31:07--> 00:31:15

my concern is are small why this surah is the biggest surah in the Quran. What if we have a big surah but with short Daya like sort of Shara?

00:31:18--> 00:31:20

No it's making such Shara is my concern.

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

Yes.

00:31:27--> 00:31:33

Yeah, not maybe for sure. I told you for sure any I has the hypocrites mentioned it's the Medina and I.

00:31:38--> 00:31:53

Now let's try to see the characters of the pious how many characters Allah subhanaw taala. Mention? fi who then limited? Who are they a Latina, Mina? Hi, Bill. Hi, those who believe in the unseen.

00:31:55--> 00:31:58

So this is the first thing believe in the unseen.

00:32:03--> 00:32:07

Why believing in the unseen? If the character is a character for the

00:32:08--> 00:32:10

bias for the belief? Why?

00:32:12--> 00:32:14

Why don't you believe only in things that you see?

00:32:22--> 00:33:03

If you believe only in what you see, then there is no meaning for the belief itself. You don't need to believe he saw it. Do you believe this works, of course, because he saw it working. So there is no meaning. That's why you have to believe in things you don't see. That's the real test. If all people they got all the evidences and they saw everything clear in front of them, they will all believe. So the real a man the real belief is when you believe in the unseen. That's why it was mentioned. They believe in the unseen. It's a character for the believer. Now Allah does not tell you you just believe blindly. But there are evidences, whatever mentioned in the Quran, you believe

00:33:03--> 00:33:11

in it. Why? Because the Quran came from Allah, you have the evidence that Quran came from Allah. So you believe in whatever mentioned there, whether you saw it, or you did not see it.

00:33:12--> 00:33:22

Now, some people tell you, we don't believe in anything unless we see it, or we sense it. They are liars. Because many times you have beliefs in many things,

00:33:23--> 00:33:24

which you don't see.

00:33:26--> 00:33:27

It happens always,

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

when you're driving your car, when you're drinking your water many times.

00:33:34--> 00:33:38

But unfortunately, when it comes to the religion, they don't apply this as well.

00:33:39--> 00:33:40

While the Muslims, they apply it

00:33:44--> 00:33:47

while you drink this water. Maybe it's poisonous,

00:33:49--> 00:33:52

because you believe that the manufacturer

00:33:54--> 00:33:58

took care of it and he puts pure water. This is belief.

00:33:59--> 00:34:04

When you drive your car, you have a belief that everybody around you, they know how to drive.

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

Otherwise you won't be able to drive your car you will take big distance. And once you have a signal you want to move right you have to be careful and it will become almost impossible to drive unless you have the belief that everybody else knows how to drive. Many in every almost every single facet of your life. We have some kind of belief, you cannot live without it. But when it comes to the religion, they tell you no, we cannot believe in anything unless we see.

00:34:36--> 00:34:51

So that's the first character for the pious. They believe in the unseen and the DNA we don't believe it. Why okay Mona Salah, they establish prayer. Now remember, this is again another rule. Always in the Quran, Allah says

00:34:53--> 00:34:54

Allah,

00:34:55--> 00:34:56

established prayer

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

have evolved slower, maintain performing

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

Prayer. Allah does not say pray. What's the difference?

00:35:05--> 00:35:08

establish the prayer and pray. Isn't it the same? Yes.

00:35:12--> 00:35:15

Establishing means being on a regular basis.

00:35:17--> 00:35:25

You don't pray one time and then you live another time and then you come again. You pray only three times a day. Yes. What else?

00:35:29--> 00:35:39

establish the prayer in Jamaica. Exactly. This is another thing. But this pertain to men because women they don't have to come to the gym. Can we call them they establish prayer? Yes.

00:35:42--> 00:35:43

What else established prayer.

00:35:45--> 00:35:58

We will discuss it further. Of what we provided them they spend matters economic inficon Allah Dini, believe it or your Cremona? salata, huami, merasakan, at home, you own.

00:35:59--> 00:36:05

Now, this is the third character that they spend of what we provided for them.

00:36:07--> 00:36:07

What do they spend?

00:36:09--> 00:36:13

Zika. So if you pay this a car, you are

00:36:14--> 00:36:15

pious does that

00:36:16--> 00:36:17

what they say?

00:36:21--> 00:36:23

They are in the same order off

00:36:24--> 00:36:34

the Pillars of Islam. Now, let me ask you this, if you pray only the five prayers and they are considered establishing prayers.

00:36:39--> 00:36:39

In Jamaica,

00:36:41--> 00:36:42

that's the minimum.

00:36:44--> 00:36:45

That's the minimum

00:36:47--> 00:37:17

you are doing the minimum so you're not still pie spice is a higher level. The same thing with there's a cap of what we provided them they spend of what remember Allah did not say this, they pay specific share of what it says off what that means there is no there is no one. There is no specific share of what we provided for them they spend that implies there is something added more than this occur. So it's not only there's a cap, there is something more.

00:37:20--> 00:37:35

Because if you only pay this occur, it's a specific share. Allah does not say of what we provided for them, but because the lesson of what we provided for them, they spend that means anything, it's not a limited or specific share they pay.

00:37:36--> 00:37:42

So in order to become a pious, you need to pay something added additional to visit cannot only visit

00:37:43--> 00:37:56

this is another thing. Then Allah says, Allah Vina Yamuna, the mountains in a coma, public, they believe in what was sent to you and what was sent to those before.

00:38:01--> 00:38:06

So it's not enough to believe in what was sent to the messenger sallallahu wasallam.

00:38:07--> 00:38:08

Why isn't it enough?

00:38:13--> 00:38:14

Isn't it enough?

00:38:26--> 00:38:31

Why do you have to believe in other prophets? Why isn't it enough to believe in the prophet SAW Selim?

00:38:34--> 00:38:40

Because that's what Allah mentioned in the Quran. Allah says believe in Moosa and eisah

00:38:41--> 00:38:49

Yaqoob No, we believe in them. So in order to be a pious, you need to believe in everything that Allah tells you to believe in.

00:38:54--> 00:39:03

Yeah, we'll learn from their stories, the stories of the prophets. So you have to believe in the prophets of Salaam and in those

00:39:04--> 00:39:10

before him, what was sent before what will Hirata whom you know, now, the last thing which is mentioned here,

00:39:11--> 00:39:30

will accurately homeopathy No, and there are certain about hereafter Allah did not say, and they believe in the hereafter. Why? Why at the beginning, Allah said they believe in the hereafter. They believe in the unseen. And here he said, they are certain. Allah did not say they believe also Why, what's the difference?

00:39:41--> 00:40:00

Yes, you will work harder and harder. Nowadays you asked many people do you believe in the day of judgment? Oh, yeah, I believe. What is the proof of that belief? Nothing. You are certain when you are certain you will not do injustice to anyone. Because you know that whatever you do, you will be

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

be held accountable for it on the Day of Judgment.

00:40:03--> 00:40:06

When you are certain about the hereafter you obey Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:40:08--> 00:40:16

you avoid sinning. That's the lesson that we learn when Allah said, and they are certain of the Hereafter, about the hereafter.

00:40:19--> 00:40:27

So, this ayah includes many lessons, importance of the belief in the unseen. You cannot be a true believer, a pious without believing in the unseen

00:40:29--> 00:40:37

What about the scene the things that you see? believer and this believer they all believe in it, there is no meaning because you saw it, something you see you believe in it.

00:40:39--> 00:40:41

Another lesson we learned the virtue of the prayer.

00:40:42--> 00:40:57

They established prayer, but did not say they pray only but there is something added to it. You perform odo perfectly, you come early to the prayer, you pray additional prayers, because in order to pray the obligatory prayers, you have to pray something else

00:40:59--> 00:41:23

to maintain to be able to maintain the prayers correctly. Spending mentioned in the ayah is not the only will and this again because it's not a specific share. And you will learn also that the one who steals and he pays money in charity is not doing any good. Because the last set of what we provide it for them. So you have to spend what you have not have what others have.

00:41:24--> 00:41:37

You don't steal from someone and you pay the car or you pay the money and you say I am doing charity that will not help you. Because Allah said of what we provided for them, of what you have. That's what you should do.

00:41:43--> 00:41:44

Okay, the next idea

00:41:46--> 00:41:54

will Allahu de Muro beam, aka homophone, this is number five. They are on guidance from their Lord.

00:41:55--> 00:41:56

And they are the true

00:41:58--> 00:42:25

successful Muslim fella in Arabic. This is Ayah number five. In Arabic. It's unlike success in English they translated usually as success, the law is to grasp the true success is in the hereafter. Even if someone has millions of dollars, but you will end up in Hellfire then what's the use? That's the true success. true success is to enter Paradise. That's what Allah says in the Quran.

00:42:27--> 00:42:37

From NZ honey nod Hello Jenna difficut says, Whoever was taken away from Hellfire and admitted paradise, then he won. That's the true success.

00:42:38--> 00:42:48

Like those the pious people, they are the successful so not everybody will be successful in the hereafter do not think that everybody will pass, many people will fail.

00:42:49--> 00:42:58

But the pious they will pass. So with this I will stop here in sha Allah, Allah sallallahu wasallam Allah venum Allah Allah savage man Solomonic.

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

Is there any question?

00:43:02--> 00:43:05

About the ayat of Surah Baqarah from one to five?

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

And a question

00:43:14--> 00:43:23

you have to read the book please remember to read the book. Now we reached almost page one or two. So yes.

00:43:30--> 00:43:31

What do you mean what's the word?

00:43:33--> 00:43:35

Yeah, we said success, but not any success.
