Today's presentation begins in Surah alpha one, which we already covered in yesterday's discussion, and then the remaining verses of today's presentation will include Surah assura, and part of surah number. Now, all of these are makansutra. We all reveal the manga and Shura Shura for a novel focus on the stories of the prophets. Now, what's interesting with full assura is that the stories mentioned insurer or insurer assura, are the same as those mentioned in previous turas, like a good and on and on. But the difference is that in this surah, they are mentioned in a much more poetic manner. And the name of the surah is Surah assura, the chapter of the poet's and the sutra ends,
criticizing those poets who were preaching against Islam, yet the whole surah itself is done in a poetry site. So if you want to look at the different versions, or the different narrations of the stories of the prophets in the Quran, you will find that this is the one that is the most rhythmic, it has the most rudimentary, that every line rhymes with the next line in a very powerful manner. So this starts off with the story of Musa alayhis salaam and then the story Ibrahim alayhi salam, and then all the different nations were new Alexandre hood saw the loot and shriveling. And all of the stories in with Allah subhanho wa Taala, referring to two of his names are in the Rebecca well,
Aziza Rahim, if you will all these other Aziz in our him. Now the names of Allah Subhana. Allah in the Quran, are almost always mentioned in case with the exception of the names of Allah and our man which are used independently as Names of Allah. Every other name is mentioned in vs. And the name of Rahim normally appears in two peers. manner, Rahim Allah furono II, but here it appears in the pay Aziza Rahim. Why are these means the most powerful, the mighty, and he means the Most Merciful? And each of the stoning Allah subhanaw taala discusses how he destroyed a nation of the past and then says because he is most likely most merciful. So what's going on? What is the destruction of the
nation has to do with Allah people's most evil? Well, the the Allah mercy when you look carefully at the stories, you know, most of them and we look at historically only from the perspective of the disbelievers being destroyed. But it's actually two sides for each of these stories. In each of the stories. Allah subhanho wa Taala is destroying the enemies of Islam, and saving the prophets and the followers. So Allah has his history and his mind is being displayed in how we destroy the enemies of Islam. But his Rama is being displayed in how he sees the province and how he sees the followers of the Prophet. And so each of these stories is actually a balance in showing Allah's might and power
and Allah Rama. So these two names are mentioned throughout the surah repeated after every story. The other surah that we will recite towards the end tonight is Surah number. And this is the story of prophets to the mind of the Salam that many of us are familiar with is called the chapter of the ant named after the ancestrally. Man Elisa Langford speak. So one of the verticals or profits for the magazine salon is Allah subhanaw taala gave him the ability to understand the language of animals. All animals have their own forms of communication, we don't understand schliemann Elisa was given the ability to understand the languages and the two examples of this in the sutra, first with
the end, where he heard a Antony the other ends to go back into the hole so that they don't get trampled by the army, and then with the bird where a bird came and told him about people in a distance when we were worshipping the sun. So what's the lesson that we take for historical purposes?
The list the main list that repeated every time that the story of proper filament or Islam comes around is the importance of sugar, the importance of being grateful. And you see throughout the surah, as well, whenever something amazing happens to promise to the man Ali Salaam, he takes a look, he says not to special gratitude to Allah, He praises of love. And the lesson here is, you see most of the other stories of the prophets of udang. they genuinely are stories of people who are oppressed, and they have to have struggle, and they have to overcome the oppression. Right like in the story of Mussolini, some Iraqi militia. Suliman Elisa has a very different story. This is a
prophet who's never been oppressed. This is a prophet who goes to victory of one victory of one victory who is always on top. So what is his what is the test when you're always on top? What is the test when you're always victorious? The test is to so sugar. The test is to show gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala for everything he has given you. And so whenever the story prefers to live on Elisa comes in the Quran, even his father, Prophet doubt Elisa,
Always the emphasis is on being grateful for Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you will find the same emphasis in this surah as well. So these are some of the verses that we will be reciting tonight is that the food was Salam Al Hamdulillah Don't be like me
