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

We move on after that to the next parable, which is in the next verse right after that.

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

As we said, we have two parables here.

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

The first is

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

the parable of the believer

00:00:32--> 00:00:43

and the foundation of the believer and that is what we have just discussed. Now we move on to the parable that a lot presents concerning the cafe and the foundation

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

of the cafe.

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

Allah subhana wa tada says, in the next two verses

00:00:53--> 00:00:57

in Surah, Ibrahim, verses 26 and 27.

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

One after Luke Kelly met in hobby 13 kashia Joe rotten hobby that he needed to set me

00:01:09--> 00:01:10

Rubina

00:01:11--> 00:01:15

or you said Beto,

00:01:18--> 00:01:22

colita BTV. dunia What

00:01:24--> 00:01:28

are you doing low Vol. II mean

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

a loss of Hannah who were to Hannah says

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

and the parable of the bad word.

00:01:43--> 00:01:48

The example of the bad word is like a bad tree

00:01:49--> 00:01:54

uprooted from the surface of the earth, not having any stability.

00:01:56--> 00:02:10

A law keeps firm those who believe with the firm word in this worldly life and in the era. And a law sends astray the wrongdoers and the law does what He wills

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

here Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:16--> 00:02:21

compares the bad word to a bad tree.

00:02:23--> 00:02:42

And a lot compares the kafir to a bad tree. So what is the bad word? What is meant by the bad word here? A loss of Hannah hutan it says elsewhere. What gyla Kelly martela Deena car photos truth law. What Kelly metu law he olalia

00:02:43--> 00:02:48

and allow me the word of the cathar to be the lowest.

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

While the word of Allah Allah made it to be the highest.

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

Even ambassador of the Allahu Allahu Allah, He says,

00:02:58--> 00:02:58

concerning

00:02:59--> 00:03:03

the explanation of the bad word.

00:03:05--> 00:03:08

Or as Allah says here, Kelly metalla Dena cafaro

00:03:09--> 00:03:18

how Allah made it, the lowest, which Allah Kelly mentality and a couple of Sophia, Abraham that says, the word

00:03:19--> 00:03:22

of those who disbelieve of the kuffaar refers to shift.

00:03:25--> 00:03:35

While the word of Allah, will Kelly matola here earlier, and the word of Allah is the highest, while the word of Allah refers to the calendar of atonement.

00:03:38--> 00:03:43

And so, just like a tree that has been uprooted from the ground,

00:03:45--> 00:03:48

and cannot produce any fruits,

00:03:50--> 00:03:53

likewise, is the state of the kuffar

00:03:56--> 00:03:59

whose foundation doesn't stand

00:04:01--> 00:04:08

or whose foundation is not anything solid, the caffeine does not stand on a solid foundation.

00:04:10--> 00:04:14

So you cannot expect him to produce anything good.

00:04:15--> 00:04:22

Meaning you cannot print you cannot expect the calf to produce any good deeds, because he doesn't have a foundation

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

where good deeds will originate from.

00:04:28--> 00:04:32

And even if a calf was to do good deeds,

00:04:33--> 00:04:40

it would not be accepted from him. Why? Because in the sight of Allah, it is not considered a good deed

00:04:41--> 00:04:45

in our sight, it seems to be a good deed outwardly,

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

but in the sight of Allah, it is not a good deed. And that is because Allah subhana wa tada is of piab La Ilaha Illa puja what is good and he does not accept it.

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

anything except that which is good.

00:05:03--> 00:05:06

So, what is a good deed? A good deed.

00:05:07--> 00:05:14

The only good deed that is accepted by a lot is that which is based upon a loss and a man.

00:05:18--> 00:05:22

A person must have done it sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:25--> 00:05:29

It must have been done sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:31--> 00:05:40

and it must have been done, according to how Allah has legislated it a lot more His Messenger, how they have legislated for this good deed to be done.

00:05:42--> 00:05:43

And so since the kuffaar

00:05:45--> 00:05:53

whatever good deeds they may do, since it was not sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:55--> 00:06:00

it is not going to be accepted from them, even at best, what are the alumni he says?

00:06:01--> 00:06:04

the deeds of the cafe are never accepted.

00:06:06--> 00:06:15

nor are they raised up to Allah subhana wa Tada. So he has no firm base on Earth, nor any branch in the sky.

00:06:16--> 00:06:28

He has no firm base on the earth, nor any branch in the sky. And that explains this parable that explains this parable. What did a lot mentioned here in this parable,

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

Allah gives three, Allah gave us three descriptions.

00:06:38--> 00:06:42

Or Allah gave us here two descriptions of

00:06:44--> 00:06:50

of this battery because Allah said the bad word is like the battery.

00:06:52--> 00:06:56

And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned two descriptions here. The first is

00:06:58--> 00:07:02

kashia Ratan javita. Eg to set Min felco audibly.

00:07:03--> 00:07:13

It is uprooted from the ground. Have you ever seen a tree that let's say a storm came and it caused it to fall over.

00:07:14--> 00:07:18

So you see the tree lying on the ground, uproot it from the ground.

00:07:21--> 00:07:25

And the second description Allah says not karate,

00:07:27--> 00:07:28

it has no

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

foundation,

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

it is not firmly fixed in the ground.

00:07:37--> 00:07:41

So now here we have a tree, that is the opposite

00:07:42--> 00:07:46

of the tree that we mentioned in the previous parable.

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

In the previous parable, we have three descriptions of the tree

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

it is firmly fixed in the ground.

00:07:55--> 00:07:57

It has branches in the sky

00:07:58--> 00:08:04

and it is always producing fruit. So now let us look at this evil tree.

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

It is not firmly fixed in the ground.

00:08:09--> 00:08:18

So this means the cafe. He does not have a man in his heart. There is no emotion in his art.

00:08:20--> 00:08:39

He has no branches in the sky, this tree has no branches, stretching into the sky, because it is uprooted from the ground. It is lying on the ground. It has no branches in the sky. The cafard has no good deeds going up to the heavens, as opposed to the believer.

00:08:41--> 00:08:46

Meaning even if he does good deeds, they are unaccepted they are not going up to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:48--> 00:09:02

and the third, this tree is not producing any fruits, because it is uprooted from the ground it is dead. So how do you expect it to produce any any fruit? Likewise, the cafe

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

he is not producing any fruits meaning he is not producing any good deeds. Even if he does good deeds, they are no and void. They are worthless, they are not being accepted.

00:09:17--> 00:09:24

And so this is the parable that Allah gives us concerning the calf. the complete opposite of the Mothman

00:09:25--> 00:09:46

and then Allah subhanho wa Taala concluded by mentioning the end result of these two parables in the final area. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned the end result of these two parables you step be to wha hoo Latina and then build a beautiful Hyatt in dunya. one euro

00:09:48--> 00:09:55

regarding the believers Allah says that he keeps those who believe he keeps them firm

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

upon the firm word meaning

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

Have a Toshi

00:10:02--> 00:10:17

in this dunya and in the Acura. As for the kuffaar, where you will no longer have volume you know, as long as you're sharp and the law sends the volley moon, the wrongdoers Allah sends them astray. He allows him to go straight.

00:10:18--> 00:10:22

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala grants the believers

00:10:24--> 00:10:27

who strive hard, He grants them firmness

00:10:29--> 00:10:42

in this dunya keeping them firm upon tauheed keeping their man firm in their hearts, keeping them firm upon the straight path in this dunya and also in the Acura.

00:10:43--> 00:10:51

And as where the kuffaar Allah leads them astray allows them to go astray. Why because they themselves turned away.

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

And so from this parable,

00:10:56--> 00:11:00

we have several lessons that we learned the first is

00:11:02--> 00:11:06

that this description Allah subhanahu attallah gives us concerning the kuffaar

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

that Allah compares them

00:11:13--> 00:11:15

to something evil

00:11:16--> 00:11:22

and the law refers to them as being evil and filthy. This is

00:11:24--> 00:11:27

a description that is right on point.

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

And so and humped in the Arabic language refers to something filthy,

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

something evil something filthy.

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

And here Allah says,

00:11:43--> 00:11:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:11:46--> 00:11:48

says that the filthy word

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

can Kelly met in javita?

00:11:52--> 00:11:57

The evil word the filthy word is just like the filthy or the evil treat.

00:11:58--> 00:12:04

And this is not the only place in the Quran where Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to the kuffaar

00:12:06--> 00:12:10

with such a description, and so Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions

00:12:11--> 00:12:17

in Surah, two nor alphabeta to the hability in our hobby Sunil hubitat.

00:12:19--> 00:12:19

That

00:12:21--> 00:12:24

the evil the wicked, the filthy,

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

meaning those who commit Zina

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

sabetha truly Hobbesian. The female among them are for the males among them,

00:12:39--> 00:12:46

while hobby tuna little habitat and the males of those who commit Zina are for the females of those who commit Zina.

00:12:47--> 00:12:56

And so a lot of refers to Xena as being something filthy, and those who are involved in such a sin as being filthy people.

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

Contrary,

00:12:59--> 00:13:04

as opposed to the believers, and as opposed to you know, the believers who do not

00:13:05--> 00:13:15

involve themselves in such sins. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What are you back to let it be? What a boon Allah tageblat

00:13:17--> 00:13:23

as for those who are pure, meaning they have purified themselves from such filthy sins,

00:13:25--> 00:13:33

then Allah says the female of the pure or are for the, the, the meals of the pure.

00:13:35--> 00:13:48

And after you Bonelli about the males of the pure are for the females of the pure, meaning that they are pure because they don't involve themselves in the filth of Xena.

00:13:52--> 00:13:55

And we shouldn't think here that

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

the kuffaar

00:14:00--> 00:14:01

if we look at many of them today,

00:14:04--> 00:14:06

they keep themselves clean. So how can

00:14:08--> 00:14:12

how can we refer to them as being dirty or filthy?

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

And it's true outwardly

00:14:19--> 00:14:20

many kuffaar

00:14:22--> 00:14:25

are more clean, they keep themselves more clean than many Muslims.

00:14:28--> 00:14:31

We say to answer this question that

00:14:32--> 00:14:38

although they may be clean their cleanliness is only outward.

00:14:41--> 00:14:42

It is only outward

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

and not inward.

00:14:47--> 00:14:55

And so cleanliness, clean cleanliness and being pure and clean. It is of two kinds

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

an inner cleanliness and also an outward

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

eldor cleanliness

00:15:03--> 00:15:05

and the believer is required

00:15:07--> 00:15:10

to keep himself pure and clean both inwardly and outwardly.

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

And that's why

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to

00:15:17--> 00:15:18

the machinery Khoon

00:15:19--> 00:15:26

as being filthy nudges Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you already know and in the middle shikun is

00:15:27--> 00:15:36

all you who believe the dimucci Kuhn, or nudges. When we read the Tafseer of this ayah, the scholar say it refers to

00:15:38--> 00:15:38

inward and

00:15:40--> 00:15:43

inward filth, meaning their hearts.

00:15:46--> 00:15:57

Their hearts are not pure, because their hearts are attached to false gods, and they worship false gods. So their hearts are not pure, but rather filthy.

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

And

00:16:03--> 00:16:08

coming back to the point of how Allah describes

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

Zina as being something filthy, if we look at the story of loot alayhis salaam, what do we find there?

00:16:17--> 00:16:30

When loot Ali Salam would call his people to worship a lot, and not to involve themselves in this hideous crime of homosexuality.

00:16:32--> 00:16:33

What did

00:16:34--> 00:16:50

what was the answer of his people? A lot tells us Womack had a joab one that can add joab comi illa and corlew. Whom in karate come in whom una soon. Yeah, Tata Harun.

00:16:51--> 00:16:56

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and the only answer they could give to loot is lamb, meaning

00:16:58--> 00:17:04

they didn't have any answer to give to him. Because they knew that they were wrong in what they were doing. So they said,

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

well, man, I can enjoy the home he called me Korea tickle.

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

They didn't have any answer except to say, expel these people from your, from your town. These were the people of Saddam, the town of Saddam.

00:17:24--> 00:17:29

Who looted Islam was set to and they were involved in homosexuality.

00:17:31--> 00:17:32

They said

00:17:33--> 00:17:50

get rid of these people, loot Ali Salaam and his followers, get rid of them, kick them out of this town. Why? in Nassau yetta Harun they are a people who like to keep themselves pure. So this shows us

00:17:52--> 00:17:53

that even they admitted

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

that

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

these

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

illicit

00:18:03--> 00:18:05

acts were dirty

00:18:07--> 00:18:08

that

00:18:09--> 00:18:24

these homosexual practices that they were involved in, that it was something filthy and dirty, they admitted it by referring to loot Allah, Islam and his followers as being pure people who like to keep themselves pure.

00:18:25--> 00:18:25

And so

00:18:27--> 00:18:33

this is the first lesson that we learned. The second lesson that we learned from this parable is that

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

shirk and kufr

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

can never remain stable

00:18:41--> 00:18:47

and can never rise and overpower a man until heat.

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

Shift and Kufa

00:18:52--> 00:18:56

is not something that remains stable. And that's why a lot refers to

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

the cafe in this parable

00:19:01--> 00:19:04

to this tree that is uprooted from the ground.

00:19:06--> 00:19:10

It has no stability. Likewise, Kufa

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

is something that

00:19:13--> 00:19:17

never remains stable, and it will never remain forever.

00:19:18--> 00:19:22

And it can never rise and overpower, amen.

00:19:25--> 00:19:29

But then suddenly be asking, how about in today's day and age?

00:19:31--> 00:19:40

Don't the kuffar and the enemies of Islam? Don't they have the upper hand over the people of a man?

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

To answer that question we say

00:19:45--> 00:19:46

yes,

00:19:47--> 00:19:51

outwardly, today. That is the case but

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

we say that the game is not over yet.

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

The game is not over.

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

The game will be over

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

on the last day.

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

And so we have from now until Yokoyama

00:20:11--> 00:20:14

and the tables, they will eventually turn.

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

And there will eventually come a time when the kuffaar

00:20:22--> 00:20:23

will be defeated.

00:20:24--> 00:20:26

This is the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:20:27--> 00:20:33

And so just because today they have the upper the upper hand, just because today they are leading.

00:20:34--> 00:20:39

It doesn't mean that fear lead is permanent,

00:20:40--> 00:20:54

but rather that eventual end will be their defeat and victory for the believers. Will tilaka Yamuna widow have been a nurse, Allah subhanahu wa tada says that

00:20:55--> 00:20:56

these are the days

00:20:58--> 00:21:14

these are the days, some days, certain people are victorious, but other days, they are not victorious. Allah subhana wa tada we don't have enough, Allah rotates it. Sometimes he gives victory to certain people.

00:21:15--> 00:21:24

But other times he gives it to other people. There is no nation on the face of this earth that has lasted until yom Okayama

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

therefore eventually comes.

00:21:28--> 00:21:56

Finally, the last lesson that we learn here is that the kafir has no steadfast base. But rather he always changes as the people and the situation around him changes. And so he doesn't have any set principles that he abides by. But he is only led by his whims and his desires. This is the reality of the Kovach,

00:21:57--> 00:22:08

they don't have any set base, the majority of them, they don't have any set of principles that they abide by. Today they are upon one thing, tomorrow they are upon something else.

00:22:09--> 00:22:36

And that is because of the confusion that they are living in those darknesses that Allah describes the cafe that he lives in, he is confused in this dunya in darkness, not knowing where to go, not knowing where the truth lies, and likewise, any Muslim who follows in their footsteps.

00:22:38--> 00:22:42

And so today we have many Muslims, unfortunately, who

00:22:43--> 00:22:48

are no different, where they don't have set principles that they abide by.

00:22:50--> 00:22:54

And so they change as the people and the situation around them changes.

00:22:57--> 00:23:28

But if a man was strong in their hearts, then they would remain firm and not change if the people changed or if the situation around them changed. Without we come to the end of this session. We ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to grant us a man and steadfastness upon his Deen, what sort of a walk was Salam ala nabina Muhammad, while early he was roughly he Petra Marine, was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
