Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh we continue with our Tafseer of the most commonly recited surah. In the Quran, we started from the back of the Quran going one surah at a time. Last week we looked at surah ma own Shura, my own dealt with
the topic of social issues being part of the deen. That is not just about the Salah, but it's about small deeds, caring for the orphan, caring for those who are portrayed in us. And it focused on the social dimension of our religion.
And with that, we move on to the next surah in the Quran, which is the shortest surah in the Quran, but at the same time one of the most important and most powerful sutras in the Quran, and that is Surah alcocer. Now, Surah alcocer is a surah, which most of us recite in our solar, because it is short.
This is the 108 surah in the Quran. And it is a Moroccan surah.
And it's just three short verses. But really, these are very, very powerful verses, because it talks about the status of our beloved Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So it's not something we should take lightly. It's not the surah which we read or recite just for taking a shortcut in the Sala it's not something small. It's a very deep surah in terms of its topic and content, a very quick translation of the surah Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful in outgoing Kosar. Definitely we meaning Allah subhanho wa Taala have given you meaning the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam alkota for solely the Arabic one. So pray to your Lord
and make sacrifice. In Shani Agha, who was definitely your enemy will be cut off.
Now to understand Surah alcocer, we need to look at the reason for revelation, the suburban ouzoud of the surah. Just very briefly, one of the fields of study related to the Quran is the field of study known as as Bob and newzoo reasons for revelation. This field of study deals with looking at verses and sutras in the Quran. And understanding the context in which they were revealed. This, this hasn't been recorded for every single verse of the Quran. But for those verses which it has been recorded, it is part of the
college the way of the scholars of the early generations, that the reason for revelation should always be mentioned. So that the surah is understood in context. And so this has become a field of study. And entire books have been written, based on this topic, just looking at the students from this one dimension, which is reasons for revelation, or as it is known in Arabic as BB and newzoo, which is the plural, the singular being sort of unusual reason for revelation.
And so Surah alcocer is one of those sutras which has a reason for revelation, which has been authentically narrated
and it goes back to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, just a brief history for those who are not aware Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was an orphan. His father had passed away before he was born. And his mother had passed away when he was very young. And he's been grandfather passed away a few years later, and then his beloved uncle passed away as well. You know, in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he is a role model for dealing with the death of anybody that you love. Because he lost his father. He lost his mother, he lost his grandfather. He lost his beloved uncle's he lost his wives two of his wives, including his most beloved Khadija Raji low on her. He
lost most of these daughters during his lifetime, and all of his sons, only 14 are regular and outlived him, he passed away a few short months after him. The reason for this is the alegebra hana with Allah as Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe. Salam himself says
that the people who are most severely tested are the prophets, and then after them those who are most righteous and in those who are most righteous, so those who received the most difficult tests in this world were the prophets. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being the most beloved prophet of Allah, his test was most difficult. And so we find in his story that his mother his father, passed away when he was a child, leaving him an orphan. His grandfather passed away a few short years later.
His uncle Abu Talib passed away during his lifetime his beloved uncle Hamza was martyred during his lifetime. His wife cottager passed away when he was in his 40s. His wife, Xena also passed away during his lifetime. All of his sons, all three of his sons passed away as children, as small children. And his daughter's also passed away during his lifetime. So whatever relatives we have lost, we can look at Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam to be our role model. How do we deal with that? How do we mourn? How do we move forward? How do we remember those who passed away Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam is our role model in this. I mentioned this because this is very closely
linked to the reason for revelation of the surah.
Very quickly, how do we deal with the death of a loved one? Again, we go to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when his son Ibrahim passed away, and Ibrahim was only around two years old when he passed away. Now, you look at this from an emotional perspective.
Most of us know what the two year old is like. It's one of the most beloved and beautiful ages that a child goes through when you really fall in love with that child because the child still has his baby qualities at that age. But he's now talking and walking and running around. And so that's the age where a parent is very close to the child. And Ibrahim was born many years after the first two sons of the prophets lonesome had passed away. And so it was his second chance to leave behind male offspring. And so when Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam passed away at a young age, we find the Rasulullah sallallahu at the janazah tears were flowing from his eyes. And so one of the Sahaba asked him
Are you also crying of messenger of Allah? Because they were under the misconception, as many of us are today that it's not permissible to cry for the death of a loved one. But Rasulullah ciloxan daughter said this, there's nothing wrong there's nothing wrong with crying. He said yes, my eyes to its mercy from Allah. He said my iced tea and the heart feels grief. But you will not say except that which is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So in this we have our role model for dealing with debt, that when somebody that we love pass away, there is nothing wrong with crying. The is nothing wrong with
feeling grief, but don't see anything which is displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we need to take a short break Now, when we return we'll continue the Tafseer of Surah alcocer salam wa Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, we are looking at the Tafseer of Surah alcocer. And although this is the shortest surah in the Quran, it has a story behind it. So we are looking at the story behind it and lessons that we can take from the story. Now the story is related to the deaths of the sons of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So we are looking at that for lessons in how to deal with the death of a loved one. And we mentioned that when his son Ibrahim passed away, he cried. And he
said that the eyes here and the heart feels grief, but we will not say except that which is pleasing to Allah. So this teaches us how to deal with the death of a loved one. There's nothing wrong with shedding tears in Islam. There's nothing wrong with feeling sad in Islam, but don't see anything displeasing to Allah. Because this is a test it's a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala. We should make sure that nothing comes off our tongue except that which Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam has is our role model in every aspect of life, even in how we deal with debt, we find with the death of his beloved wife, what deja rajala and how he would never
forget her. Many years later, he would continue to talk about her good qualities, he will continue to preserve, he would continue to send gifts to her friends, staying in good contact with her friends and family out of honor of his wife who had passed away. So we find that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam honored his wife, even years after she had passed away, this is how we deal with the death of a loved one. We continue to do good.
And ask Allah Subhana Allah to send the reward to the accounts as well. And we stay in good relations to those who were beloved to them. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is our role model in all aspects of life. So getting back to the story, what happened because of Rasulullah sallallahu Islam because his sons had passed away at a very young age, one of the disbelievers began to laugh and mock at him, saying that he was a bitter that he was cut off, meaning his lineage was cut off, because one's lineage is usually continued.
through one sense, and by not having sons and only having daughters. This gave the disbelievers something which they try to poke fun of the tour Rasulullah slowly solemn, that his lineage is cut off there be no one to continue his legacy after his death, because he does not have any sense. But literally this this, these disbelievers no way understand the greatness of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the greatness of his legacy and message that it would continue not only to his daughter, Fatima, and her lineage to Hassan and Hussein rajala on home, no, but even through his followers, the legacy of Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam is not one
which is passed along through blood.
But it is one that is passed along from the hearts of the believers from one generation to the next. And so his legacy was continued. He was a man who did not lead and who did not need to leave behind sons to continue his legacy, because he left behind Sahaba and this haba the left behind the web, and the web left behind the bad dobbyn and the left behind the next generation of Muslims. And that continued until today, the legacy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has grown to such an extent, that in every Masjid in the world, five times a day we are asked to do an AMA Hamada rasulillah, a bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, that Muhammad is the most common
name in the world.
I repeat Muhammad is the most common name in the world. Amongst if you look at all the names in the world amongst Muslim and non Muslim alike, Muhammad is the most common name in the world. This is the status which Allah subhanho wa Taala had given Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and he had given him even more. So this Surah Surah alcocer was revealed on this occasion, when this disbeliever had told Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that he will be cut off and forgotten. of Lhasa. handleless said no, not only that Allah increased his status in this world. But in the next world, he will have the highest status before Allah subhanaw taala informed Rasulullah lolly Salaam that don't worry in Athena qualcosa
definitely we have given you, we will give you alcocer What is alcocer alcocer is a fountain in Paradise, which belongs exclusively to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and from which the believers will drink.
So this is a status exclusive to him.
Something which no one can take away from him, something which no matter what disbelievers say about him, because just like David this will leave it at that time who spoke bad about him. Today, there are still many disbelievers who speak bad about him on the Internet and on television and in the newspapers, but they will never take away from the fact that he will have the highest status in the afterlife. It is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who will intercede for this woman.
It is Rasulullah sallallahu. Some will intercede for the sinners of this woman. It is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam would have mahkamah mood, the highest status in paradise. It is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be given alcocer
the fountain of paradise. And no matter what the disbelievers say about him, no matter what people whose hearts have hatred, say about him. They will never be able to take away from his status in this world or the next.
So Rasulullah Salallahu Salam Allah subhanaw taala consoled him with a surah
and reminds him that not only does he have a high status in this world, but in the afterlife, he has something which nobody else would have. And so this sutra was revealed to console him.
In another surah, Allah subhanaw taala reminds him what Luca de croc is in Surah in Shira, and I'm not sure. Allah says we're another classic rock that we have raised your status, we have raised your status in the eyes of people.
So Allah subhanaw taala throughout the Quran
is reminding us that Rasulullah slowly assume
he's high status in this world and the next is a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you look at the situation which Allah subhanaw taala sent him it's in of itself is a miracle and proof of his prophethood that we had one man in Makkah, claiming that there is no god except Allah, that he is the Messenger of Allah. And he wondered how am I going to spread this message. In the beginning he had very few followers. But within a period of 23 years, he had 10s of 1000s of followers. Makkah and Medina were under his control.
Hi Adam, how does any person who from year to day within a period of 20 years
I mean, we know the full Syrah but it's a miracle. It is a miracle in of itself, for Allah to put so much Baraka in the dour for it to grow in such a short period of time, that 20 years after he had passed away, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, and many other countries were under the control of Muslims and have become Islamic lands, that Islam spread so far, and so much that it is the second largest religion in the world today.
All of this is the Baraka which Allah subhana wa Taala has put in his tower
and will continue to put in the tower if we follow in the footsteps of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so Allah subhanho wa Taala whenever he speaks about his favorites, he always speaks about being grateful to his papers. And so we find even in the surah, where he's addressing our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he speaks about being grateful to Allah. So he tells us to Allah slowly Islam that we have given you alcocer so worship Allah stolyarov Vika Praise to Allah for your Lord sola, again, notice this common theme throughout the Koran. Almost any sutra that we end up doing Tafseer of we have to speak about sola sola the second pillar of Islam. So that is so
important that according to many of the Muslims, you're not a Muslim if you don't prefer that,
as Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had mentioned in authentic IDs found in Sahih Muslim alphorn kobina will be no masala the difference between us in the disbelievers is the sola for man taraka who forgot cover. Whoever abandons the Salah has become a Garfield has left the fold of Islam. Very serious issue. This is the most important aspect of being a Muslim. This is the primary form of worship of Allah. We were created to worship Allah if we are not praying five times a day we are not fulfilling the most basic and simplest form of worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So where does that leave us? Why is Allah emphasizing this point over and over again? Think about it. Last week we spoke about sudama on a worship Angela wanders about Salah, he said for legal in mousseline Allah Xena
una Latina Homura una una my own
destruction to those who play their solar leisurely and pray for sure and overlook small deeds.
Praying your Salah easily or praying for shoe will lead to the hellfire. What about not praying at all? We will not lead you know, so if you look at the descriptions of Hellfire Rasulullah slowly some has warned us that in the Hellfire, that it is prohibited for the Hellfire to burn the place of our forehead which touches the ground in such depth.
Now if you're not touching the ground in such depth, then how are we going to be seen from the elbow? And when when the body speaks about those people, Muslims will be thrown into the Hellfire and then they'll be taken out the angels will be sent to take them out because of the intercession. You know, they will be recognized by this marks of such that on their foreheads. Again, if you're not praying Salah how are you going to have marks of such on our foreheads? The Salah is so important.
And really if you just read the Quran you'll understand this. Think about Did you open the Quran? The very first page iaca nabooda canister in you will only worship You will only ask for help. How do you worship Allah? The most basic form is Allah the second page of the Quran. Allah Dena yoky Muna sola, those who established the salah
window Quran talks about the Prophet Jesus peace be upon him when he came out of his mother's womb. The first thing he spoke about
that my Lord has commanded me to pray the salah and to give charity as long as I'm alive. Again the first thing he speaks about the Salah
if you look throughout the Koran Salah is everywhere This is so so vital. So so important without sola Eman can leave our souls without the Salah we have no connection to Allah subhanho wa Taala what is stopping us from putting our foreheads on the ground floor creator? What is stopping us from raising our hands to our shoulders or ears five times a day saying Allahu Akbar God is the greatest fooling them and then pleasing Allah and seeing hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen All praises to Allah The Lord of this world's most Gracious most Merciful. Master the Day of Judgment you alone you worship you alone, you ask for help, and then crying and asking Allah Idina sirata muster
Guide us, Guide us to the straight path. What's stopping us from doing this five times a day.
We need to introspect, because you will find in this surah and almost any surah that we discuss the concept of Salah pops up time and time again. Allah Subhana Allah in this surah is commanding Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Pasolini, Rebecca, he studied him even though you're going to gender even though you're getting alcocer you still have to pray for Allah. What about us? We're not guaranteed gender. Don't we have to Priscilla even more? If you want to get there, because this is a command form verb for suddenly it's in the command for it's a command to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam even though he knows he's going to gender even though he knows he's forgiven, and he's
going straight to gender he still is commanded for solely So pray What about those of us who don't have this assurance? How much more is it did we need to pray five times a day? Allah doesn't just say pray is pray lira Vika for Allah not to Allah for Allah wife for Allah again, we spoke about this last weekend from our own the intention if you're not praying for the sake of Allah we praying just to please our parents, or just to please society also that people call us a Muslim. In the Salah is not accepted. You need to play you need to play League rugby league means for for the sake of Li Robic for your Lord, when you stand before Allah subhanaw taala you need to pray with the
intention that I am doing this for the sake of Allah, not for any other intention
to be from a loving home your own. Don't be from those who pray for shall be from those who solely lira, who pray for your Lord for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala You know, every single word in the Quran has a specific reason for being the origin See, pretty to your Lord Illa Arabic He said pre Lee Robic for your Lord, focusing on the intention. So not only do we need to pray five times a day and pray properly, but we need to understand why. And for what reason, am I praying? What's my intention? Is it just to get it over with and downward? Is it just so that my parents are happy or my spouse is happy, or the community is happy or people say we're Muslim, or my praying for Allah.
And when you pray for Allah,
you will find the sweetness of Islam, you will find the sweetness of a man in your heart.
I want you to think about a certain hadith of Rasulullah slowly Salaam Rasulullah sallallahu samsudin authentic Hadees that of the things of this world that I love most are woman and horses woman referring to his wife. I see all the things in this world which I love most are woman and horses, but Salah is the coolness of my eyes. Now I want you to think about this. When we make dua for our wives and children, for spouses and children see robina hublin I mean as wodgina kurata I mean as wodgina was reacting akula to iron Oh Allah grant us children and spouses who will be the coolness of our eyes. Now, anyone who has a spouse or child that they love, knows what coolness of
the eyes means. It's a very special feeling of love. It's a very special sweetness in the heart. It's a very strong bond is a very special feeling. Do we get that feeling in solar, because solar slugs are missing that solar is the coolness of his eyes, when he experiences that same level of special sweetness in the heart when he prays to Allah as we do, when we are with our wives and children. The coolness of our eyes. Think about this if we are not experiencing this in such data.
If we are not experiencing this when we are reciting Quran inshallah, then we are not doing it properly, there's something we are not doing properly either we do not understand what we are reciting. Or we are leaving out one of the conditions for the solid to be to be correct. It needs to be there needs to be that connection with Allah when you praise Allah, we need to come out on this law, feeling closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala feeling that peace in our heart that it may not feeling the sweetness of emotion in our heart. This is what Silla is supposed to do for us. If it's not doing this for us, then we need to re evaluate and introspect that what am I not doing right? So
Sala Li Robic for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then two others one that says 100 and sacrifice now unhealth refer specifically to sacrificing animals, right as we do on it.
And, you know, that's the primary meaning that when you sacrifice animals do it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But it carries a deeper context as well. That life is about sacrifice. Life is about sacrifice. You're not going to get to gender by just sitting around and enjoying life. No, we have to make sacrifices. Gender is a lost property.
Generally expensive gender is better than anything in this world which you can buy. We know the better something is, the more expensive it is. So why do we think we can get gender for free? Why do we think that gender is cheap? That we can go to Paradise without working for it without trying our best without working hard? Why do we think this, no sacrifice is necessary to get a good abode in general, we need to invest in general we need to wake up, when we are tired. We need to work hard when we are lazy. We need to make dua we know a man is feeling down, we need to push ourselves beyond what we think we are capable of. You know, many of us say that I don't think I can prefetcher
I don't think I can wear hijab I don't think I can grow a beard, I don't think I can do this. No, challenge yourself, make the sacrifice, push yourself, you don't know what you are capable of doing until you try. Each of us has the capability to fulfill every requirement of the Sharia. And we know this because Allah told us in the Quran, law you can leave alone Epson illos Allah, Allah does not burden the soul with more than it can handle. Meaning every single aspect of the Sharia is within our capabilities to handle, there is nothing, I repeat nothing in the Sharia, which is beyond human ability to comply with another verse of the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says, and he tells us that
have not created for you any highridge any difficulty in this religion. mean there's nothing in this religion, which is too difficult for the human being to practice. So what makes it makes it difficult, a few things social pressure, not to do the writing shaytan continuously putting thoughts in our head not to do the right thing. Many of us forget the sheet answer real. And he's around us continuously trying to stop us and the human desire to do what we want, and not to submit. And so this is where the sacrifice comes in that we need to train ourselves. We need to discipline ourselves that we will do what Allah wants us to do, even if it's not what I want to do. This is
where the submission the Islam comes in. The word Islam means submission. This is submission where when you don't want to do something, you still go ahead and do it for the sake of Allah when it's budget time in winter, and it's cold, and you don't want to get out of the blanket. But you do it for the sake of Allah subhana wa Taala that is something beloved to Allah, that's something Allah looks upon. Allah subhanaw taala loves because you made a sacrifice to please him even though you've never seen him. And so it's sacrifice that is needed to please Allah subhanho wa Taala we're going to take one last commercial break. When we return we'll conclude with the Tafseer of Surah alcocer
alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. This week we are looking at surah alcocer and we are approaching the final verse of the surah. The first verse spoke about the greatness and status of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The second verse, the input speaks about the importance of salah and making sacrifices for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada two concepts upon which this religion is based two concepts which are necessary for working our way towards paradise and the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala praying five times a day is the minimum grade, this is not piety, to pray five times a day, that's the minimum price people are those people who play the tahajjud and, you
know, the extra players, the five times that's the minimum just to be Muslim, just to be you know, within the fold of Islam to be with close to Allah subhanho wa Taala to get to paradise.
So, when you start praying five times a day, and you need to make sacrifices, whatever the sacrifices is, but sacrificing for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala will always go rewarded. In other words, the groundless ones I said in the sala de
la hora de la la mean, that my solar and my sacrifice and my life and my data all for the Lord of the woods. This is one of the most beautiful verses in the Quran, my Salah, my sacrifice, my life, and my debt is all for Allah, the god of this world, how many of us can see this? Now this this should be our motto, this should be our goal. This should be what we are aiming for in life, that our soul and our sacrifice and our entire life and even our debt is for the sake of Allah. This is something that we need to really work towards if we want to earn the pleasure of our Creator. Now, we come to the final verse of Surah alcocer. In Shani, aka what chapter and this verse shifts now
towards discussing this disbelieving man who had insulted Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and called Rasulullah obter Allah says know your enemy is your enemies cut off this man who said this he is cut off.
What I mean is, you know it means a variety of things. Number one, he's cut off from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala number two is
He thinks this, this believer where he's shallow understanding of this world, he thinks that because also the something that have children, that his legacy will die out, and he won't be remembered. But rather, it was the opposite way around Rasulullah Islam is the most beloved man to billions of Muslims around the world. While this man who insulted him cut off, doesn't exist. Not only has he passed along a disbeliever, but if you don't even remember his name, you know, he's completely cut off from memory, from the history books.
You know, because of the industry, his punishment for insulting the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala which brings us to another important lesson. And that is the status of Rasulullah slowly Islam and, you know, insulting the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala in an Islamic State. The punishment for that is for debt is actually debt execution. The punishment is execution. That's how serious a crime it is. and insulting Rasulullah sloth is not just insulting him by
talking bad about him, but even attacking him sooner. So when Muslims poke fun at the beard, you insulting Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam because he had the beard. I mean, if Rasulullah was alive and sitting in the room, would you would you dare poke fun at the beard? So why why would you do that? behind his back when he has passed away when you know that he has a beard?
Think about that. Or even polygamy. You know how many Muslims poke fun at polygamy and make it sound like it's something evil and something bad if Rasulullah Lawson was sitting in front of us with these nine wives. Would you dare to speak a bad word about it? We need to think about this really be when we see these things. We say jokingly we see how we see it with a no thing thinking it's something light. We don't realize we're attacking the honor. And the sooner of our beloved Nabi solaia. Solomon, you see these things, and this can take us out of the fold of Islam, as mentioned in Surah, tauba tauba. And this is a story to go into there was a man during the Battle of the book,
who during the expedition of the book, who poked fun at the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and allegedly revealed the verses of the Quran that for Bella he was rasuluh it just as you are you making a mockery? Are you joking about Allah and he signs in his messenger that the adizero
ghatkopar in Monaco Don't make excuses. You have committed Cooper. You have disbelieved after having
the least severe, very strong verses in the Quran. Allah says that if you make a mockery of Allah, or he signs and he signs refers to any part of Islam, making a mockery of anything which is part of Islam. Really, it's the beard whether it's the hijab is the niqab, whether it's polygamy, whether it's sada, whether it's paradise or hell, jokes about any of these things, is making a mockery of the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you make a mockery of Allah, and his saints, or His Messenger, unless his letter does, you don't make excuses.
God confirmed to me you have disbelieved after having a very, very strong warning. This is something each of us should think about rarely think before we speak.
It is part of our religion, that we love what Allah loved, and we hate to Allah hated, and he, Allah loves that men grow beards, it is not fitting for a believer to mock the beard, because when you do so, You're mocking Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. You're mocking all of the prophets of Allah, You're mocking the Sahaba You're mocking the grid imams of it, and scholars of Islam of the past and present, all of them had years. I mean, how can anyone like that stand before lots of 180 of judgment, knowing that he mocked everybody who is beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Think about this, think about this before we make these jokes. These are not things to be taken lightly. This
man called Rasulullah Muslim up there, and a large handler called him up. Allah subhanho wa Taala punished him greatly for insulting Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, how many of us insult Rasulullah sallallahu some everyday by mocking history by not taking things seriously, you know? And we say things like oh, it's just the ideas. It's just the Hadith. You I mean, how many times have you heard this statement? Oh, it's just the Hadees Do you know what the Hadees is? A Hades is the words and the deeds of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. If Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is the most beloved person or to you, how can you call his words and deeds just a Hadees it's not just the IDs. It's
something which is compulsory upon us to follow. It's the Sunnah. It's the lifestyle of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. The Hadees is the explanation of the Quran. The Hadees is for the most part of Revelation. The Hadees is a story
source of Sharia, there is no such thing as it's just a Hadees.
So be careful. We need to be very careful about all these things, anything related to the Messenger of Allah slowly some we need to be careful because insulting Rasulullah slowly some and his honor is an act of disbelief.
So when we insult Hades, when we insult the sooner when we insult things, which Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam did, like having more than one wife or growing a beard or the hijab or the niqab like his wives had or any of these things, which are so commonly looked at by Muslims today, we are mocking Rasulullah sallallahu Sana, see when you do these things, you are mocking, and you are looking down upon the lifestyle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam philosphy Allah, let us repent. If you ever said any such things in the past, it was sincerely Repent, for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. From ever making a mockery of anything related to him, or his religion, or His
Messenger, sallAllahu wasallam. mocking any of these things can take us out of the fold of Islam, and is a serious, serious offence. So be careful what comes off our tongue.
There's nothing wrong with making jokes in Islam, making jokes in Islam, it's hard to make a joke about things which are not directly related to the religion, or things that happen in our life, which were funny, nothing wrong with laughing at that. But don't laugh at your religion. Don't make jokes at the expense of Islam. Don't make jokes which mock any aspect of Islam. When we do that, then we are stepping on dangerous grounds, we are entering a field which can lead us down here and away from Allah subhanho, wa Taala, and any direction of shader.
So these are the lessons we can take from Surah alcocer. Again, three short verses. Next time we recite to alcocer in our Salah, don't do it for taking a shortcut, but do it out of respecting, you know, thinking about the honor of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam which Allah has granted him in the Quran, remembering the importance of salah and the importance of sacrifice, and remembering the fate and the result of those who mocked or Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and said we ourselves should be careful not to do this. And so if we look at the surah hamdulillah
it's part of the miracle of the Quran, once again, the miraculous nature of the Quran, three verses, not even one and a half lines in Arabic. And we spent a full one hour discussing it.
There's no other book in the world like this isn't isn't that there's nothing else in the world, on this level, where you can go so deep into one verse into each word, because we broke this down word for word and we discussed many, many words that we didn't discuss, we can go deeper and explain why Allah subhanaw taala uses certain words for emphasis and why he uses certain verbs in certain forms. Just each student can go so deep any sort of the Quran can go that deep, this is the power of the Quran.
So let us take the Quran seriously. let us study it every day of our lives growing our knowledge that has become from those who understand the Quran and should not enter zero for frivolous Islam and emulate it and love it.
This is be from those who follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam to such an extent that we become as he was there, till Allahu alayhi wa sallam. When Ayesha rajala was asked about his character, he said kind of Holy Quran, his character was the Quran.
Can we see that about ourselves is our character and our lifestyle is the Quran that we love the Quran. If not, it's time for a change. It's time for us to focus. It's time for us to pick up the Quran, to recite it, to study its Tafseer to understand it, and to live it, to live the Quran and to make it our way of life. So again, a quick summary of the lessons of Surah alcocer. We learned how to deal with the death of a beloved, we learned about the status of Rasulullah Islam in this world and the next we learned the consequences of mocking
or degrading Rasulullah Islamism or any aspect of religion. We learnt the importance of Salah that even in the shortest route of the Quran, which is only three verses Allah says Pasolini, erotica rissalah for the sake of Allah, we learned the importance of having the right intentions when we do things and we learned that this religion is a religion of sacrifice. And if you want to get to Agenda if you want to earn the pleasure of our Creator, sacrifices have to be made.
So that inshallah we come to the conclusion of this week's program. Next week inshallah we will look at Surah Al kafi, run
sudo GFI is a very important surah for us to look at because
It's often misquoted in modern society by those of us who did not want to do Dawa to
make an excuse not to do our the sutra is misquoted. So we're going to look at the sutra, it's suburban nizoral his reason for revelation, its context, what does it mean? What should we take from it? And what are the mistaken understanding of the sooner which are prevalent in our community today, inshallah. So next week we will study the Tafseer of Surah Al copywritten in details, which is the 109 surah of the Quran. So until then, we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make the gold on the light of our hearts and the guidance of our lives and to make the Quran the very essence of which we lived, and an important part of our lives to help us to follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu
alayhi wasallam in every single aspect of our lives, and to be from those who love Rasulullah sallallahu Islam more than our own selves, and we show that in our actions and we show that in our lifestyles. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to help us to understand and practice his religion properly. Why don't you wanna and hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen until we meet again, Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
