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

Can

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

we move on after that to the next variable?

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

And this is now moving on to.

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

And

00:00:25--> 00:00:29

so we have covered all the parables and Seurat earlier on

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

and then we jump to sutra where we find the next variable. And this is in verse number 71.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:00:46--> 00:00:50

boo, boo boo Neela Hema

00:00:51--> 00:00:55

Runa wila yo Runa one word

00:00:56--> 00:00:58

for dinner, there are

00:00:59--> 00:01:03

no law. ladies who show up.

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

Ronna hoo

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

hoo hoo that dinner?

00:01:13--> 00:01:17

Who the law he who was a Buddha? What

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

do you what do you

00:01:21--> 00:01:22

mean?

00:01:24--> 00:01:32

Lots of China who were to Allah here gives us the parable of rejecting guidance after having received.

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:01:37--> 00:01:39

commanding His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:41--> 00:01:43

CE, O Mohammed

00:01:45--> 00:01:46

asked the kuffar

00:01:48--> 00:01:59

Shall we invoke others besides a law? Shall we make do we worship others besides a law, that which neither benefits us nor harms us,

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

and then turn back to misguidance? After Allah has guided us,

00:02:06--> 00:02:10

if we do this, then we will become like one whom the devils.

00:02:11--> 00:02:16

They made him to wander around in the earth and fused

00:02:17--> 00:02:23

while he has companions inviting him to guidance, calling him come to us.

00:02:25--> 00:02:33

Cool, thank you day, oh, Mohammed, indeed, the guidance of Allah is giving me guidance. And we have been commanded to submit the Lord of the word.

00:02:36--> 00:02:38

And so here, Allah subhana wa Taala

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

compares

00:02:42--> 00:02:44

the one who rejects alhuda

00:02:45--> 00:02:51

the guidance of a lot, the one who rejects it, after having accepted it.

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

The one

00:02:55--> 00:02:56

who was a believer.

00:02:57--> 00:03:01

And then he also stated, he left Islam

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

a lot compared to such a person, to a person who is wandering

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

on Earth, let's say in the desert,

00:03:16--> 00:03:28

and the devils have taken control of him, making him to wander around. While he has companions, he has friends. Were calling him to come back to the past.

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

Let's say they were traveling

00:03:33--> 00:03:39

and the shale clean to control of him, made him to deviate from the path that they were traveling on.

00:03:40--> 00:03:43

His friends are calling him come back, this is the straight path.

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

But he does not listen to them. He does not

00:03:48--> 00:03:52

he does not pay any heed. And so

00:03:53--> 00:04:03

some of the machinery cool in a time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would call upon some Muslims to revert back to idol worship.

00:04:05--> 00:04:14

So they would tell them, these Muslims who had embraced Islam, they would try to convince them to leave Islam and come back to the idol worship.

00:04:16--> 00:04:19

So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this verse.

00:04:21--> 00:04:38

And some scholars of Tafseer they mentioned that this verse was revealed in relation to Abdul Rahman in in a debugger, probably along with the son of Abu Bakar, probably a wahoo.

00:04:40--> 00:04:44

And so he would call his parents back to Kufa because he had not accepted Islam.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

In the beginning, the man, the son of Abu Bakar of your last line, had not accepted Islam while working for the law, who was one of the early companions of the Prophet sallallahu earlier

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

selam along with his wife

00:05:04--> 00:05:07

and so, his son remained upon Kufa

00:05:09--> 00:05:13

and he would call his his parents back to Kufa

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

and they would call him to Islam.

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

But he would refuse.

00:05:24--> 00:05:26

And he remained a Catholic

00:05:29--> 00:05:31

even after the Hydra Medina

00:05:33--> 00:05:40

and he even participated in the battles of murder. And oh showed on the side of the kuffaar.

00:05:42--> 00:05:45

So he participated in the battles of weather and ocean,

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

on the side of courage.

00:05:49--> 00:06:05

But then eventually, Allah subhanho wa Taala guided him and he accepted Islam. And he migrated Medina and he participated in the battles with the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam,

00:06:08--> 00:06:12

even our bass or the Allahu, and he says concerning this verse,

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

that it is the example of the idol worshiper

00:06:18--> 00:06:28

where he says, the example of the idol worshiper is that of one whom the jinn They call him. And so he follows them.

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

Then in the morning, he finds that they have thrown him into destruction.

00:06:36--> 00:06:37

So like a person who is,

00:06:39--> 00:06:46

you know, wandering in the desert, and the jinn the shout out being the devil's They call him, he follows them,

00:06:48--> 00:06:49

being alerted by them.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

And let's say it's nighttime.

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

And he follows them and

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

he becomes lost.

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

By the time the morning comes, he realizes

00:07:05--> 00:07:05

that's it.

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

I'm lost. So I'm gonna die here now.

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

Allah subhanho wa Taala says here,

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

that your example if you

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

go back to Kufa, after your email,

00:07:23--> 00:07:43

after you were a Muslim, and you decide to reject Islam, and the guidance that Allah has sent you, you decide to prefer misguidance over guidance. You decide to prefer Kufa over him and and Islam. And your example is that of

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

this individual who goes on this road

00:07:48--> 00:07:57

with some people, and then he becomes lost, and the devils they lead him in confusion, they lead him to wander in confusion.

00:07:59--> 00:08:03

Meanwhile, he has companions calling him

00:08:04--> 00:08:10

wonder who is Harvard Law who was horrible here the ruler who even who that Tina,

00:08:11--> 00:08:14

you're the ruler who isn't who that a Tina,

00:08:15--> 00:08:19

he has these companions, were saying come back to us

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

come back to the guidance.

00:08:23--> 00:08:25

But he refuses to go back to them.

00:08:27--> 00:08:44

So he follows the shell clean, thinking that you know, this is the path of guidance. But by the morning, you find himself lost wandering in this wasteland in this desert, where he will die of thirst. And you know that will be the end of it.

00:08:45--> 00:08:46

And so,

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

here if we were to break it down,

00:08:50--> 00:09:02

we can see what a lot compares, you know from this terrible what Allah has compared to what? So choosing to go back poofer after he man

00:09:04--> 00:09:07

is this insane person who loses his mind.

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

Cofer is compared to being lost wandering around. And that's how a lot compares Cofer in other places in the corridor.

00:09:19--> 00:09:23

That Cooper is darkness

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

and confusion.

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

It is layers of darkness one upon the other.

00:09:34--> 00:09:53

And Allah compares the mutually cool who call this person to apostate. As we mentioned, those individuals from kurush who were calling the Muslims to apostate Allah compares them to these devils these Jin who lured this person in the desert to follow him.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

And Allah compares that the Tao of Allah and the angels

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Bring the Revolution

00:10:02--> 00:10:09

and the companions and the believers, what compares them to

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

these companions, these friends that he has, who are calling him back to the past.

00:10:17--> 00:10:21

And so there are many lessons that we can learn from this parable.

00:10:24--> 00:10:26

But I'll just mention two among these

00:10:27--> 00:10:28

lessons. The first is

00:10:30--> 00:10:32

the danger of turning back to Kufa

00:10:34--> 00:10:37

the danger of turning back to confer after email,

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

and misguided after guidance,

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

the danger of

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

getting burnt out,

00:10:48--> 00:10:49

as we see many Muslims today,

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

having once lived a life upon st karma.

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

They were once upon a time practicing

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

on the team.

00:11:03--> 00:11:04

And when you look at them today,

00:11:05--> 00:11:09

they've left their religious life behind.

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

Whether they have a post dated or not, that's a different story. We have both.

00:11:17--> 00:11:22

We have both around us, those who either leave their life of the karma,

00:11:23--> 00:11:28

their religious life, and decide to live a life of sin,

00:11:29--> 00:11:34

while remaining Muslims or those who leave Islam altogether.

00:11:36--> 00:11:36

And so

00:11:38--> 00:11:43

we'll see in this parable that Allah has given the danger of that.

00:11:45--> 00:12:02

And that such people they will wander around in this life in a confused state, until they meet their Lord until they meet a loss of Hannah who went to Ohio. And what awaits them in the US is far worse than what they are going through of confusion industry.

00:12:07--> 00:12:14

And a loss of parents who were to highlight reminds us also of the danger of Apostasy

00:12:15--> 00:12:16

the danger of

00:12:18--> 00:12:18

leaving Islam

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

and he reminds us that

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

you leaving Islam does not hurt

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

Islam, nor does it hurt Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:12:31--> 00:12:37

Yeah, are you hella Vina, I'm assuming you're in Command D for Sophia Tila Who do

00:12:38--> 00:12:40

you hate Boo. Boo Boo Boo.

00:12:42--> 00:12:50

I didn't let him Island mean. Hello Catherine yuja he do Luffy Sabina la one I Hakuna Allah tala,

00:12:51--> 00:12:56

all you who believe whoever among you. costings

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

turns to Cofer after Eman

00:13:00--> 00:13:05

then be reminded that Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

will come with the people

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

will replace you

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

with another people

00:13:14--> 00:13:16

will love him and they will love

00:13:18--> 00:13:23

him subhana wa Tada. He will love them. And they will love him subhana wa Tada.

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

And they are merciful

00:13:29--> 00:13:30

to the believers,

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

turn against the disbelievers

00:13:35--> 00:13:38

and they fight the part of the law and they do not

00:13:39--> 00:13:42

hear the blame of any critic.

00:13:43--> 00:13:44

The second

00:13:46--> 00:13:48

lesson that we can learn from this parable is

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

that

00:13:52--> 00:13:53

the Father

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

and the enemies of Islam will do everything that they can

00:13:59--> 00:14:02

make sure that you become one of them.

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

As we saw in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:14:11--> 00:14:13

and as mentioned in this verse,

00:14:15--> 00:14:18

that they're calling this person, Cooper.

00:14:22--> 00:14:26

So they will do everything that they can to make sure that you become one of them.

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

Especially after a while has guided you.

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

And so we need to keep our guards up.

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

And we need to always remember

00:14:37--> 00:14:39

that no matter how much

00:14:40--> 00:14:47

we try to appease the Kovach, no matter how much we try to blend in,

00:14:48--> 00:14:50

no matter how much we tried to be one of them.

00:14:52--> 00:14:56

They will never be satisfied until we leave Islam

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

and accept their way of life.

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

Completely

00:15:02--> 00:15:10

loss of Hannah who went to Anna says, while en todo la Antalya who dwell on loss or had the Tabby ami letter,

00:15:11--> 00:15:17

the Jews and the Christians, they will never be satisfied with you

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

until

00:15:21--> 00:15:25

until you follow their religion, their way of life,

00:15:26--> 00:15:30

even if it is not their religion today, but their way of life,

00:15:31--> 00:15:34

their secular, liberal way of life

00:15:36--> 00:15:40

that opposes Islam in its very fundamentals.

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

Until you do that they will never be pleased with you.

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

Do everything you want.

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

Try to blend in.

00:15:50--> 00:15:53

Try to show them that you are one of them.

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

While still calling yourself a Muslim,

00:15:57--> 00:16:07

they won't have any of it. They won't be satisfied until you become one of them. Until you follow their way of life,

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

their culture

00:16:11--> 00:16:12

and accept it wholeheartedly.

00:16:14--> 00:16:15

So this shows us that we need to

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

keep our guards up

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

and ask Allah subhana wa tada forth about

00:16:23--> 00:16:34

constantly asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep us firm, upon guidance firm upon his Deen and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:16:36--> 00:16:40

among the two islands that he used to say most often

00:16:42--> 00:16:46

was mckinleyville Kuru did call bialetti.

00:16:48--> 00:16:50

The old Turner of the heart,

00:16:52--> 00:16:55

beat my heart firm upon your deed.

00:16:56--> 00:16:57

Because

00:17:00--> 00:17:02

our hearts are in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:06--> 00:17:11

Imagine if this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who's making such a dua

00:17:13--> 00:17:17

and he was one of the doers that he used to say most often.

00:17:19--> 00:17:20

And what about the rest of us?

00:17:22--> 00:17:23

We can slip

00:17:24--> 00:17:30

at the slightest of things. Our demand is so weak, that we can easily slip

00:17:32--> 00:17:40

and so we should constantly be asking Allah subhanahu wa tada to keep us for after we have chosen this path

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

of guidance

00:17:44--> 00:18:16

and after we have chosen to dedicate our lives to Allah subhanho wa Taala to be upon allistic on after that. We need to be constantly asking Allah subhanahu wa taala to keep us firm upon that path. Because Allah Subhana Hannah who without a guy told me once and he allows to go astray those whom he wants, guidance and Miss guidance is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is not in my hands. It is not in your hands, no matter what you do.

00:18:17--> 00:18:20

never become self deluded into thinking

00:18:22--> 00:18:26

that you will never leave Islam for Kufa on your own. No.

00:18:28--> 00:18:32

That is not in your hands. It is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:18:33--> 00:18:41

and so constantly ask Allah Subhana Allah to keep your heart firm upon his Deen and upon

00:18:42--> 00:18:50

the corner, upon steadfastness upon his Deen, so Hanna who would die without we come to the end of

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

today's session?

00:18:54--> 00:19:06

We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep our hearts firm upon his Deen to protect us from Kufa from misguidance. From all kinds of misguidance We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:19:07--> 00:19:14

to guide those who have become misguided We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep us for his guidance.

00:19:15--> 00:19:28

When it comes to deny your denial, I mean, come along with Southern Allah and Mohammed. on early he was so happy he was seldom at the Sleeman kathira was Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
