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

What do you

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

wanna

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

share? You bought a new Raji

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

method with a very clean eater while

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

he was semi healthy, yes, we

00:00:35--> 00:00:36

have

00:00:37--> 00:00:37

that

00:00:42--> 00:00:51

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam at a man, Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah.

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

Allah Allah. He was a busy woman da da da was standing there, the sooner he niomi Dean along aluminum is gonna be my antenna. President I probably should be surgery. We're certainly Emory. Odetta. melissani Kohli, another ad that I'm running Come on warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:01:17--> 00:01:22

Moving on to the next terrible that we have before us.

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

This is

00:01:26--> 00:01:30

a method, a comparison that Allah Subhana Allah makes

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

in Surah

00:01:34--> 00:01:34

Surah.

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

And so here in solitude,

00:01:40--> 00:01:46

verse number 24, the last kind of who with the either compares the two camps,

00:01:47--> 00:01:51

the two camps of the believers, the disbelievers.

00:01:54--> 00:01:58

Allah subhanho wa Taala says your meta illusory or unique,

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

will assume one industry or semi.

00:02:04--> 00:02:20

The example of the two parties is like the blind and the Deaf, one hand and the seeing hearing on the other. And so we are limited to the two or the two equal in comparison

00:02:22--> 00:02:26

to that rule, then will you not be Will you not be mindful?

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

Prior to this verse in solitude,

00:02:35--> 00:02:42

we're to look at the context of this comparison that Allah gives us here in verse number 24.

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

Allah subhanho wa Donna

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

walkabout inland,

00:02:49--> 00:02:55

the descriptions many different characteristics and descriptions of the coupon

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

and then Allah subhanahu wa sallam in in one of their descriptions of loss of habitat. He said, Man, we are stuck here in a seminar. One of

00:03:11--> 00:03:12

these disbelievers

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

they failed to hear or see.

00:03:16--> 00:03:19

They could not hear nor could they see meaning the truth.

00:03:21--> 00:03:31

They could not hear nor did they see the fruits. So this is one of the descriptions that Allah mentions here, about the Kufa that is

00:03:34--> 00:03:39

then Allah subhanho wa Taala after mentioning all Domini is far

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

after all of that alone mentions one is concerning the belief.

00:03:46--> 00:03:57

That is the idea right before right before the philosopher who says regarding the believers in alladhina amanu Welcome euro solly had

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

to eat out of

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

Indeed, those who believed and did purchase pretty and they humbled those who their Lord

00:04:10--> 00:04:11

and they humble themselves.

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

Then after that Allah mentions this.

00:04:19--> 00:04:21

Though it says if I was the one who attended

00:04:22--> 00:04:30

Boca Boca for telling us you know who the disbelievers are, and then in one iota tells us who the believers are

00:04:33--> 00:04:36

at the very end to conclude the matter to summarize

00:04:38--> 00:04:48

the comparison between these two camps, Allah subhanahu wa tada says, method will be unique as well awesome.

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

What about

00:04:54--> 00:04:58

law says sample dear example

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

Example of the disbelievers. And the example of the believer

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

is like

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

the blind, the Deaf, eating the disbelievers.

00:05:13--> 00:05:14

And

00:05:15--> 00:05:18

the one who can see perfectly here perfectly the believer.

00:05:21--> 00:05:26

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala compares the disbelievers to someone who is blind and deaf.

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

Someone who is blind and deaf.

00:05:31--> 00:05:35

Why? Because their eye

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

and also their hearts

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

are blinded from the truth.

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

And your ears are deaf from hearing.

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

So just like a blind and a deaf person,

00:05:55--> 00:05:56

blind and a deaf person.

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

What would be his fate in this like?

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

Someone who cannot see anything but not hearing?

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

How would he be able to live in this world?

00:06:10--> 00:06:17

wherever he goes, he would be lost. You will be confused. Not knowing where to go. Why? Because

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

he can't hear.

00:06:21--> 00:06:26

Sometimes he'll go and hit a wall. Other times he'll tripped over a stone or rock.

00:06:28--> 00:06:33

He's always in a state of confusion in dark.

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

Likewise, is the state of the far

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

the disbelief.

00:06:42--> 00:06:44

The disbelievers who have rejected

00:06:47--> 00:06:51

the disbelievers who are stubborn on their wings.

00:06:52--> 00:06:53

not want

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

your seat is

00:06:59--> 00:07:03

wandering around in his life and few in darkness.

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

And these are

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

the praise Allah subhanho wa Taala Mencius

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

turning a disbeliever

00:07:15--> 00:07:21

that they are blind, they are deaf. Boone Bookman, neuroimmune, for whom, la your god

00:07:23--> 00:07:27

that they are blind, they are deaf or dumb, they will not turn

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

the homeless,

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

they cannot see

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

the homeless and they cannot

00:07:39--> 00:07:39

stand.

00:07:42--> 00:07:47

And Allah subhanho wa Taala also tells us about the bar that they are living in

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

one or the other.

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

So this is the state of the dispute.

00:07:55--> 00:07:59

Method a little tiny, L and L are some

00:08:01--> 00:08:08

law says the example of the two parties is party a bar. They are like

00:08:09--> 00:08:12

one who is debt, one who is blind and one was dead.

00:08:13--> 00:08:14

How about the believer?

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

Well don't care.

00:08:21--> 00:08:35

And to be party be the believers? What is their example? Their example will last as is like one who can see here perfect. the complete opposite of the other party.

00:08:36--> 00:08:46

And so it was kind of huhtala compares the believers to one who can see and hear why. Because their eyes and also their hearts.

00:08:48--> 00:08:49

He's a true

00:08:50--> 00:08:51

in recognize,

00:08:52--> 00:08:56

and their ears can hear the truth,

00:08:57--> 00:08:57

then except

00:08:59--> 00:09:00

that's the only difference.

00:09:03--> 00:09:15

Too far is that they have not heard the message of spam, or they have not heard the or an or that he cannot recognize the truth for what it is.

00:09:16--> 00:09:23

They know the truth. For those who, you know, Islam has been presented to them clearly with its evidences.

00:09:25--> 00:09:31

The problem is that they can the problem is not that they don't recognize the truth but a lack of

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

a lack of acceptance.

00:09:35--> 00:09:43

And that's why it was so hard and who therefore tells us the reality is that they can't see nor can they hear or can they recognize the truth

00:09:45--> 00:09:50

is if they could hear it, if they could see it. If they could recognize it, then they would have submitted they would have accepted it.

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

That is the case of the believer. He sees that. He recognizes it. He hears it submitted

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

With

00:10:02--> 00:10:04

just like a person in this world who

00:10:06--> 00:10:07

can hear perfect,

00:10:08--> 00:10:11

without any defect in his Faculty of

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

hearing,

00:10:16--> 00:10:17

what is his state in this dunya

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

function with the proper human being?

00:10:23--> 00:10:24

Ever he goes,

00:10:26--> 00:10:32

he is bringing benefits of why, because of this blessing of being able to see and hear.

00:10:33--> 00:10:36

And he's able to stay away from that which will harm him.

00:10:37--> 00:10:50

He's not like the Deaf, and the blind. wherever he goes, he's in a problem. He's confused, he doesn't know where to go. He's tripping over things. He's hitting interesting.

00:10:53--> 00:10:56

And then after that was kind of hotel rooms the idea

00:10:58--> 00:11:06

by negating any quality between these two parties, between these two camps

00:11:12--> 00:11:13

or these

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

are the equal

00:11:16--> 00:11:25

and they be compared to one another. Can we say that camp a is just like me? So we animus Allah?

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

Can the one who is blind?

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

Can he be compared to the one who can see perfectly?

00:11:34--> 00:11:39

And the one who could end up can the deaf person be compared to the one

00:11:40--> 00:11:42

who can hear perfectly?

00:11:46--> 00:11:51

This is a rhetorical question the answer is obviously no. cannot be compared.

00:11:53--> 00:11:54

Then or concludes,

00:11:57--> 00:11:58

then will you not

00:11:59--> 00:12:01

be mindful? Will you not

00:12:02--> 00:12:03

give heed?

00:12:05--> 00:12:10

These are reminders for people who will be keyed

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

into Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us this

00:12:18--> 00:12:23

comparison between the two paths, the believers and the display

00:12:25--> 00:12:28

and a loss of Hannah who went to Allah 1400 years have

00:12:29--> 00:12:33

made the comparison or made the difference between the two year

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

we're

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

in such a yet

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

that will be receded until the day of just

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

even though today we have people

00:12:49--> 00:12:49

who

00:12:52--> 00:12:53

want to say that no.

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

We're equal.

00:12:59--> 00:13:02

These two parties, these two camps are equal.

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

Let us come

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

and agree on common ground.

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

Let us forget about our difference.

00:13:15--> 00:13:19

In the end, we are human beings. And there should be no

00:13:21--> 00:13:24

difference between us on the lines of faith,

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

the lines of religion.

00:13:29--> 00:13:33

You have so many people today who are calling for them. Unfortunately Muslim,

00:13:35--> 00:13:37

we're calling for such ID.

00:13:39--> 00:13:46

And so among the lessons that we learn from this comparison, was kind of a mix here

00:13:47--> 00:13:49

is first of all,

00:13:51--> 00:13:56

that Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to the believers as those who can see and hear

00:13:59--> 00:14:05

even if the believer is actually blind and deaf in reality.

00:14:10--> 00:14:11

And so real blindness

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

real blindness and real death

00:14:18--> 00:14:22

is not the physical blindness definitely

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

the real blindness, real death

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

is

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

blindness and the deafness of those

00:14:37--> 00:14:44

either hearing, thereby accent and that's why we have many Muslims who may be blind

00:14:46--> 00:14:57

cannot see or they may be deaf here. But yes, your Eman is stronger than many Muslims who can see perfectly and here

00:15:01--> 00:15:08

And so it was Hannah who with data refers to the believers, as those who can see, you can hear.

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

Imagine a blind person, a blind Muslim, or a deaf Muslim was to come across this area.

00:15:20--> 00:15:25

How do you make a deal that was referring to me? In someone who thinks

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

you're perfect?

00:15:28--> 00:15:29

Why? Because

00:15:30--> 00:15:33

he sees the truth, and he hears the truth.

00:15:37--> 00:15:44

So this is because they follow the truth, regardless of how they received the truth.

00:15:47--> 00:15:50

And so if they were blind, maybe they could not read the Quran.

00:15:52--> 00:15:56

But perhaps they heard it, their ears heard the message and they accept

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

or they are deaf

00:16:02--> 00:16:08

here, but they could dream up, they read something about the

00:16:10--> 00:16:13

so it doesn't matter how the message reach them.

00:16:15--> 00:16:17

What matters is when the message reach them,

00:16:18--> 00:16:19

how do they react

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

with the

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

odd region.

00:16:25--> 00:16:31

And so on the other hand, the disbelievers a lot referred to them as blind and deaf, even if,

00:16:33--> 00:16:38

even if these disbelievers can see perfectly in here,

00:16:39--> 00:16:40

because

00:16:42--> 00:16:56

they did not benefit from these factors of hearing, and seeing when the truth came to them. And so, it was through these faculties of sight and hearing

00:16:58--> 00:16:59

that they were

00:17:02--> 00:17:07

that they rejected. That's why I was a fan of who first of them as the blind and

00:17:09--> 00:17:16

the second lesson that we learned from this method is comparison is

00:17:18--> 00:17:19

the fact that

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

the call to

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

peacefully coexist

00:17:27--> 00:17:28

this Paul,

00:17:29--> 00:17:31

for religious pluralism

00:17:33--> 00:17:40

that let us all unite irrespective of our religious differences, our beliefs,

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

let us all unite gettable our differences,

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

this call

00:17:48--> 00:17:52

runs contrary to what Allah has revealed in the crowd.

00:17:54--> 00:17:57

And so, such all these new files

00:17:58--> 00:18:02

because clashes between

00:18:03--> 00:18:04

or because

00:18:06--> 00:18:10

this is this clash between a man and Kufa

00:18:11--> 00:18:14

is a clash that is real.

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

It is a class that is real.

00:18:20--> 00:18:26

Not because I said or so and so smaller said no. There's a lesson of who tada

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

actually in the

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

end, so

00:18:33--> 00:18:37

it started 1400 years ago, it started before that. But

00:18:39--> 00:18:44

it became set in stone 1400 years ago, when it was revealed

00:18:45--> 00:18:47

and it will continue to be recited.

00:18:50--> 00:18:53

And so for example, a lot revealed in the Quran

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

in surah, zero

00:18:57--> 00:19:01

Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses the kuffaar hufa

00:19:02--> 00:19:03

curfew.

00:19:05--> 00:19:07

Now I will do my taboo.

00:19:08--> 00:19:11

When were these verses revealed to the Prophet Allahu Allah,

00:19:13--> 00:19:18

they will reveal to him at a time when

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

the Missouri School Board

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

asked him optimize on his beliefs.

00:19:29--> 00:19:30

He said let us unite.

00:19:32--> 00:19:34

Let us forget about these differences.

00:19:36--> 00:19:38

We will compromise and you also compromise

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

let us agree

00:19:42--> 00:19:42

that

00:19:43--> 00:19:51

we will forget about our gods our idols for one year and worship your God. And you Oh Mohammed, do the same

00:19:52--> 00:19:54

except our God for one

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

and so it was

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

With in this court

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

these

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

two will reveal to the law

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

will allow me to clear

00:20:12--> 00:20:14

that that which I worship is not the same as

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

that which I worship

00:20:20--> 00:20:39

is not the same as love to worship that which new worship is not the same as that which I worship, nor will it ever be the ultimate loser surah saying, Let de nukem Walia de for you is your religion, he is mine. Now there are people today, who will dump on this verse.

00:20:41--> 00:20:41

Look,

00:20:42--> 00:20:51

Your Honor, who is saying, leave the bar, let them you know, let them worship whatever they want boss God.

00:20:52--> 00:20:55

And we also

00:20:56--> 00:21:00

only worship Allah we, you know, this way we can peacefully coexist.

00:21:02--> 00:21:03

And then use this verse

00:21:06--> 00:21:07

they use they try to use it.

00:21:10--> 00:21:19

For and for a for a purpose. that runs completely contrary, the purpose behind why Allah revealed.

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

So think about

00:21:23--> 00:21:27

this, this verse and this tour was actually reveal

00:21:28--> 00:21:33

the purpose of revealing the purpose why Allah set these down,

00:21:35--> 00:21:35

was

00:21:38--> 00:21:43

make the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this associate himself from shift, and we should

00:21:45--> 00:21:48

not bring them closer, not

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

to

00:21:52--> 00:21:56

compromise with them, and to accept them be accepting of them, no

00:21:57--> 00:21:59

disassociated from shift and it's

00:22:00--> 00:22:04

not for the sake of religious pluralism, not for the sake of

00:22:05--> 00:22:09

unity of the religions and bringing us closer together.

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

And so these are Yahoo revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Makkah.

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

He revealed

00:22:21--> 00:22:25

then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrated to Medina.

00:22:27--> 00:22:31

Then, for many years, he returned the mecca

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

offering Mecca

00:22:35--> 00:22:37

entering the Kaaba

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

was

00:22:40--> 00:22:42

not seeing to the Muslim moon,

00:22:44--> 00:22:50

that you have your religion continue worshiping your idols, we have our religion

00:22:51--> 00:22:54

you know, yes, we have the upper hand now. Therefore,

00:22:56--> 00:22:57

let us peacefully coexist.

00:22:58--> 00:22:59

He returned to me

00:23:01--> 00:23:05

entering the caliber and destroying the hundreds of idols that were

00:23:06--> 00:23:11

destroying the hundreds of the idols that were in it.

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

And so,

00:23:17--> 00:23:20

in this comparison that Allah gives us in here's what

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

we learn, that

00:23:25--> 00:23:26

camps

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

are two separate

00:23:30--> 00:23:37

they are two separate camps. And never can a believer be compared with

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

in the sight of a loss of owner who is the harlot.

00:23:41--> 00:23:43

They are two opposites.

00:23:44--> 00:23:47

That can never be considered as being

00:23:48--> 00:23:54

in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala they can never be considered Ian.

00:23:56--> 00:23:58

So we animus data

00:23:59--> 00:24:06

are the equal and they be considered as being equal? Or for question. Answer of which is not
