After that we move on to the next
as we mentioned, the next parable is right after right after this parable, it is also the parable of the moon Africa.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says
oh guess what you mean I said
Luna also the fee
means so are you
curry Lana bow.
He would either have lemma IE him
a love letter recently him or those for him in law.
this parable that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives
in verses 19 and 20 of Surah Baqarah.
This parable is the second parable of the hypocrites.
And to distinguish between these two parables. The scholars they refer to the first parable as an metta luminary
the parable of fire
so, the previous parable that we covered was
mentioned about the fire and how fire is ignited around such a person.
This parable is referred to as a method will match
the parable of water
and so once again, this parable is concerning the hypocrites and their lack of benefit from the ye
their lack of benefit from the revelation here Allah subhanahu wa tada says, okay, so even minister now if he Luma tomorrow
or their example, the example of the hypocrites
is like those who are caught in a rainstorm from the sky
with darkness, thunder and lightning
your jaha Luna wasabia Danny him
Mina so while
they press their fingers into their ears,
at the sound of the thunder
for fear of death,
a lot of caffeine and a lot is ever encompassing of the kuffaar of the disbelievers.
ucalgary barroco tofu episode Oh,
it is as if the lightning was about to snatch away their site
called Mr. Abbas Allahumma Shafi
every time the lightning strikes,
they walk in its light.
What is our old dilemma?
But then, when darkness covers them to a standstill
when OSHA Allahu Leatherhead or dissembling him or assaulting him. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken away their hearing and their sight.
In the law, Halla, conditioning Padilla and a lot is all powerful, most capable of everything.
And so here Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the hypocrites
as being one who is in heavy rain
that contains darkness, and thunder
and then out of fear, and out of his own weakness, his cowardness
he puts his fingers into his ears, and he covers his eyes, afraid that you know what this lightning is going to strike me.
And so imagine a person out
in the wilderness or you know, he's outside, and he starts to pour, it starts to rain heavily.
And it's dark, it's night. He doesn't know where to go.
And lightning is falling Thunder is falling everywhere.
He's afraid maybe he'll get hit by
puts his fingers in his ears, he's afraid of the sound.
And he covers his ideas.
And so why does a lot gives us give us this parable
of the munafo of the hypocrites.
It is because
what they lack is insight.
And they don't use their intellects
their weak insight.
And because of their weak intellects,
the commandments and the prohibitions in the Quran.
The threats of laws punishment in the Quran.
They become difficult for these to absorb.
And so it's as if the commands in the Quran, the prohibitions in the Quran, whatever Allah reveals in the Quran, it's as if it's a it's a lightning bolt
And they're also being attacked with loud thunder.
That refers to the Quran whenever they hear it. Whenever a new idea comes,
they become afraid.
And this is how a lot describes them in the Quran.
As the Quran was being revealed to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam
knew it would come.
And these munafo khundii were fearful. They were afraid.
One of the things they were afraid of is that perhaps a verge is going to come exposing them, because remember, the munafo the hypocrites?
Are these insiders,
of the enemies of Islam.
They are the eyes and the ears
of the enemies of Islam in
the Muslim community.
So in the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam,
the mafia cool around him in Medina, they were working against him with his enemies.
So Allah exposes them, especially in Surah to tell them, that's why suta Toba is referred to as the surah
that exposes the mafia Kuhn.
these hypocrites are being attacked by heavy rain by lightning.
Similar to the previous parable,
a lot compared to them, to a person who
is illuminated around him.
But he doesn't benefit from that light. So Allah snatches it away. Likewise, here, what does the law say?
The law here says quill lemma adore Allahumma Shafi that every time the lightning would strike, they would have some light, and they would walk
in it being guided by the light of the lightning
what you have in common, but then when the lightning, the lightning, it comes for just perhaps a second or two or a split second.
They walk in then all of a sudden becomes dark, and they have to stop.
It's always once again that theme of them having light and then the light being snatched away from them. Once again, like the light of a man. Why is it taken away from them?
As we mentioned in the previous parable, because they didn't have anything
From from it.
And so a lot takes it away from them.
Now, some scholars,
they say that this parable,
this second parable of the moon after Kuhn is concerning those
hesitant between enon and Cofer.
So they're not stable.
Sometimes they accept a man. Other times they go to cover.
Whereas the previous parable that we mentioned,
was about those who
they are proper kuffaar they are steadfast upon upon Cooper in their hearts, they're not hesitant about their cover
such as shipping with a mean,
he says that this parable refers to the hypocrites who are not believers to begin with.
And so, in the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, the munaf yakun around him, were
from among the Arabs. An Arsenal has Raj,
but they were also from the Jews. Some of the Jews were hypocrites.
And this was,
especially after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was victorious in the Battle of bedroom,
and he returned to Medina victorious. So these Jews, they became afraid.
And so they accepted Islam outwardly while
while keeping Cofer in their hearts.
So these scholars say that this parable here refers to it refers to these hypocrites who are not believers to begin with. So they never tasted a man to begin with.
The other hand, the previous parable, referred to those hypocrites, who were between 11 and Cofer,
which is why they had late and then it was taken away from them.
someone may be asking, how is it possible that
the hypocrites they had a man
a loss of hair, who was out in the Quran, mentions that they did have a man.
and then they
they disbelieved and so in Surah tomonaga cool. In the very beginning, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Delica be unknown.
To MacArthur Valley can be unknown, and I know Summa cafaro for to behalf Allah Kubi him from law school. This is because
they believed meaning of the moon they believed, then they disbelieved, therefore their hearts have become sealed so they cannot comprehend.
So based on this verse,
the mafia Kuhn, some of them
did become believers. They did have a man but
their Eman did not
penetrate and settle into their hearts like we mentioned previously. And that's why they quickly left and became kofod.
We have many lessons that we can learn from this parable.
Among these lessons, is first of all,
the munaf yakun
always live in fear and worry.
They're always fearful, always worried.
And this is something that loss of Hannah who tada describes them as in other places in the in the person.
And so Allah says in Surah Toba, in Nehemiah says even Kadena Lao Minami La Jolla will
work tab Kuru. For home fee him
a lot talking about those who
excuse themselves from the battle. This is referring to the Battle of Dubuque
a group of people who excuse themselves.
From that battle
among them where the mafia who among them were believers?
And we have the famous story of the three, who, you know,
they excuse themselves from going out in that battle. And then Allah subhanahu wa taala forgive them, and how they went through a very, very difficult
tribulation, because of that,
while it serrata to Latino, holy foo, but we're not talking about, we're not talking about them we're talking about Allah says, In the Masters, you know, Kadena la mina Villa, he was the only asset. No one would ask him for exemption to be excused except those who do not believe in Allah or the last day, or a tablet guru, and their hearts are in dealt for him if you run into him yet or do so they are torn by their adults. They're always in a state of worry. They're always
afraid. Also Allah says,
describing the munaf Hakuna surah
Allah says for Elijah and hopeful Hitomi on Verona, Erykah? Badu
When danger comes,
you see them staring at you, with the eyes rolling, like someone who has become overcome by death.
They're so afraid.
This is the state of the mafia. Why?
the mafia Kuhn live
in the ranks of the believers.
They're around us.
who is in authority, the believers are in authority. In the case of Medina,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had his Islamic State.
And so these won't have your call who are working against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they're afraid of becoming exposed. What if someone finds out that you know, we are working for the enemy.
So they're always afraid.
And this fear and this worry,
the only cure for it is evil.
And that's why the believer is never in a state of fear or a state of worry or state of doubt.
Allah says, Allah Do you know
what a plumber in Nakuru bahuvida karela.
Those who believe and their hearts find comfort in the remembrance of Allah Allah be the karela he taught my group, surely, by the remembrance of Allah in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find comfort.
The second lesson that we learned from this parable is
that the arguments of the Quran are like thunderbolts
for the hypocrites, they come down to striking upon them.
And this is why it is our duty
to use the Quran.
or the Quran is the word of Allah.
And in it we have
are not only convincing,
but proofs and evidences
that act like thunderbolts when they land
and so this is why we need to use the Quran
to make the truth clear to the people
and that's why Allah commanded in the Quran, fella to query taffy reader wotja he to whom de Jihad and
do not obey the kuffaar
and use it meaning the Quran
strive diligently against them against the kuffar with it meaning with
which I hid him, PG, Jihad and Kabira.
And so using the Quran to prove the truth of Islam is a form of jihad as a lot of refers to here.
The third lesson that we can learn from this parable
is that loss of Hannah, who was
Allah encompasses everything in his dominion.
And Nothing escapes his knowledge.
And so that's why Allah says, will long will she will carry a lot encompasses the kafar.
What this does is that it makes the believer firm and steadfast when he hears this, when you hear the Allies all encompassing of the kuffaar
it makes you feel strong and you're a man
that the enemies of Islam no matter what they do,
in the end of the day, Allah is
putting a circle around them. Allah will take care of them, don't worry.
On the other hand,
when the hypocrite hears will love him, people will Kathie Lee, he loses all hope.
And he becomes more fearful.
He realizes that he can never escape from the punishment of a loss of handle what?
this is the parable that Allah mentions here. These are the two parables that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us concerning the hypocrites and their danger, the hypocrites and their danger. And the reason why Allah subhanho wa Taala has spoken about the hypocrites so much in the Quran,
worrying so much about them and their danger.
To the point where Allah says, Who will I do?
They are the enemy, so be aware of them. As if Allah is saying, Who will I do?
Last? Do we have it wrong.
It's as if they are your only enemy, you don't have any other enemies.
Why does a lot emphasize so much
in warning us against them. Because as we said in the beginning, the hypocrites.
Their danger is so severe because they are in our ranks.
And because we can't really see them.
It's difficult to notice them.
They come to you with the face of a believer.
They come to you,
as if they are one of you.
without you realizing
that they are hypocrites and actually working against you.
And it if this existed 1400 years ago in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
then it makes more sense that they will exist
afterwards until the day of judgment. And especially in times when Muslims are weak. Like today,
the hypocrites are everywhere
they are in our ranks, even here.
They come and pray in our massages.
And you don't even know
that they are so far
in their hearts.
And that's why we need to really really study the Quran
and especially these verses where Allah gives us so many different descriptions of the munafo of the hypocrites and ponder over them, because these are merely descriptions that Allah give us.
With these descriptions, we will be able to see
who these hypocrites are and therefore, be able to be safe from their danger.
When we come to the end of
wood that we come to the end of this first
session of or the second session of the parables of the end.
Until the next session, we shall conclude here. So the Hannukah locomobi hummed. A shed will let you enter so Furukawa tuberculate Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
