Just study mind that I know that we said this multiple times before, I need each one of you to have a notebook and a Koran in their hand in the language that you understand.
In the soil for possession.
So operon that you understand, even the brothers and the sisters who are following us online, we're going to need a Quran from you and your own language because we're gonna give you a verse number. And that's how you're going to keep up with us in sha Allah
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Chateau La ilaha illallah wa sallahu luxury Kala watch Edwin namaha Mohammedan abotu who wore a Zulu Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Muhammad in fille de nos Kareena Warfield, mela Illa Allah Allah within
my dear respective brothers and sisters in Islam whether on site or whether online we welcome you to the objective based halfsies series
by the grace of Allah subhana wa tada we completed the first
three major chapters Surah Al Baqarah Surah Al Imran and Sora to Merida. And today, baby light Allah we are working on Surah ilma ada,
Nisa married. So that's chapter number five.
Again, the objective here is to give you a MapQuest to understand the source. We're not explaining every verse, but we'll give you guidelines on how to understand software now.
Of course the word will marry that means that table
that's we're gonna come to that in sha Allah, but here is the higher aim
or the objective, whatever title you wanna use, be truthful or be true to your obligations.
Be true to your obligations. So that's the title that's now this is the main one, the main objective, we're gonna try to assemble all the subjects in the chapter towards that. You're getting that that is the meaning of that. Some people call it Jani thematic FC have to you know, that term is also used.
Here's what we have today. This is what we will cover for. We're gonna have five parts Part One introduction to the soul. We're going to introduce the chapter to you when it was revealed and why then email me either
and I would like to connect because this is the last madonie Surah At the beginning of the most Have you seen Baqarah is Emma Danny Emraan is Emma Danny in Nisa is Emma Danny L. Marita is a Madani after that we're gonna go into McKee and I am. So let's connect those four Mackie. Some of you may not know what Mackey Anwar is madonie the Quran was revealed in 23 years.
The Quran the book that we have was not revealed all at once in 23 years. You're getting that. Now the scholars categorize the Quran into murky and maddening without going into details what is the criteria a lot of the scholars adopted anything which was revealed before the hit Jolla is considered to be macky Quran even if it was revealed in somewhere else other than Mecca and any Koran that was revealed after he Jura is considered to be made and equal on even if it was revealed
Mecca and we have an example of this, in this particular chapter, we're going to show it to you.
So we're gonna try to connect those four, because they have those four were put together for a purpose at the very beginning of the most half. Because next surah, we're going to have a chapter called the nim, the capital, which is was actually revealed all at once this chapter was revealed all at once, and it is a murky chapter.
Now I have to give you the evidence, why did I choose that particular objective, you know, be true to your
obligations to your covenants I must have because for you to choose an objective for a surah
you must have some indications some you can just you know, bring up your own objective So, we're gonna give the evidence for adopting this particular objective which we presented, Be true to your obligations or fulfill your obligations or covenants or whatever it is.
Sora till May that somehow marks the ending of the revelation. It's actually one of the latest chapters revealed so all the rulings inside
surah Ada were not abrogated any ruling inside in May that there is no chance for its public
what is the word nest cullowhee
abrogated right nest, change the
abrogation right Okay, can we accommodate the sisters in the back please?
Okay, sorry they didn't hear anything.
Okay, online Sorry about that.
Okay, so let's have the sisters can we bring the sisters admitted them here in sha Allah, Allah, Allah tala dermatolog. Irrelevant here.
What is the word fullness? I forgot the word in English fullness. abrogation being changed, right. Yeah. abrogation. Yeah.
the subject of the holistic gains of the Sharia is crystal clear in this particular chapter.
And we're gonna go into it, I don't want to confuse you. But
this chapter, his subjects are really divided into 16 pieces, each one of them comes after Yeah, you have levena mm, who you believe and this is the highest number and we're gonna come to this so here you are Latina man who mentioned in one chapter.
So you're gonna find out that the subjects Allah would say yeah, you are Latina, everyone, he would address certain subjects underneath that particular call.
So the brothers and sisters online you have not missed a lot, but you know, the the sound was off but you have not missed a lot. So again, we chose the higher aim of Sora to marry that chapter five of the Quran, the marry that means that he will be true to your obligations or covenants, or contracts fulfill your contracts, you can do that. And this is what we will cover. Let's begin with the part one which is the introduction to the Surah
Surah ADA is the fourth of the four large madonie surahs at the beginning of the most, that's obvious.
Even though we say it's number five, because we did not add what Al Fatiha so we have in fact, that's one Al Baqarah, two lm Ron three in this air for this is number one, number five, number five
it is the fifth according to the order of the must have its number 112
how many sources were revealed in the Quran 114. So, you can tell
this is 112 and there is a debate that it is actually 113
they want to say that Ada Allah He will fat is the 114. So there is that the beat so that is why all the rulings the verdicts mentioned in this particular surah been no chance for them to change.
It was revealed in Medina when soon after the Treaty of ill food idea, then what year was that? The six year after hijra.
We know that the disbelievers waged war against the Muslims in three battles in a row. What was number one?
What's number two? Or what what is number 233 battles in a row.
Then what happened after that the Muslims decided to go and perform Umrah.
They said, Listen, that people have courage do not own the sacred house. They are servants of it. They shouldn't prevent anybody from karma coming even if they are our enemies. They have no right to prevent us from coming. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took some of his companions and he went to perform hombre de Qureshi said no,
you're not gonna come in
negotiation ended up with a truce or with a treaty peace treaty called warp alhuda be that Sora was revealed after this.
And it kept being revealed.
Some of the surah was revealed.
Now you can tell that it was not revealed in Medina correct?
Even though it's maddening, but remember the criteria now for Ramadan and Mackey
idea is near
near Mecca. But yet we still call it what madonie surah because it deals with a different condition of the Muslim community there is an established, established entity. There is a state there is a leader, a president and I may say that the Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and his community there are people of minorities, Christian and Jews, and he has enemies and he's defending the oma. So the criterias are different to
individuals who decided to adopt Islam as a religion in a Muslim society in a non Muslim society and you know, they are trying to just preserve their faith basically.
Here is the verse number three in the surah.
This is an ideal example, which talks about today I have completed the religion for you.
We know that Rasul Allah, Allah salam, just look at the middle of the verse. This is not at the beginning of the verse at the middle of the verse, and the oma is alladhina Kapha roaming, Dini, Confederate xo homework shoni leiomyoma. xml to lacantina Comm. We know that this verse was revealed where in arafa when the prophet SAW Selim was standing in alpha, but yet we still call the whole chapter what madonie so some of this was revealed during Hajj, the fair will Hajj of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The surah consists of 120 verses Surah Nisa very interesting it was started as a Johann ness all mankind
and surah Marita started with the U haul Latina and then why anyone can can think why what is the difference?
Because Surah Nisa addressed the Muslims taking care of the larger community imagine Muslims like America like America, we are a minority imagine the other way around. So Allah is addressing what all mankind now you're gonna have to take care of the larger community here, you being Muslims being in charge of them.
ADA is about certain covenants and contracts which Muslims have to fulfill. So it has nothing to do with mankind. A lot of these contracts actually and Covenants and obligations are towards mankind
the only surah in the Quran, by the way, which started with that call. Yeah, uh, you had leadin M and the only surah in the Quran
I'm sorry this is wrong. Yeah. Hola El Dorado started with that. Yeah.
So that's that's a typo there.
The first tour I made the first surah in the Quran. So there is a typo there. So just correct this please the first surah in the Quran starting with the kuliah you have Edina mn
and remember what
was said about that statement when you hear Yeah, you have Latina M and what should you say?
What should you do?
Listen to it carefully because it is an act of goodness you are commanded to do or an evil
you're asked to avoid, again, let me correct this. The first surah in the most half, which started with Yeah, you had Latina woman, because there are other suitors that starts with the lady name is not the only 100. What?
Yeah, in the order of the most half
the first in the order of the most half, you're getting that we're going with the order of the Muslim. You see when we talk about the order token the order of the most half and the order of the revolution, normally we took with the final order of the most half.
The main feature of the surah is the frequent use of the cool 16 times
more than any other Surah Al Baqarah for example, is almost twice 286 verses right? this surah is 120 correct. How many are your levena emmanuelle Baccarat 10 times so this surah is 16 times how many you are Latina mo in the whole Quran at eat, see, can tell that there is a specific focus on that call that Allah is remind because Allah is asking us to fulfill certain contracts. And now Allah is building this on the criteria based on what I'm asking you to do this because I have a contract between you and me, which is what you believe in me. You're a Muslim. Now, you're getting that that's the criteria. It's like you agreed to do the job. Right? Then that's what you have to
Since it is one of the last Sutras, the perfection of the deen was mentioned in that chapter because the Dean was complete.
And much of the surah is post victory. Post conquest of Mecca post an idea in the surah Allah says, today the disbelievers have given up the fact that they can defeat you
and the oma look at this verse. Look at this verse again. Five three, look at the statement before today I completed the religion. Can somebody read to me what's in the in the English show what you understand what is the Elio Maja is a Lavina cafaro mendini comb?
Isn't that what it says before today, the disbelievers have given up that they can they can remove Islam from the face of this earth.
And that shows you also how
perfect this religion is and that is why they cannot defeat it. Because Allah completed the religion besides Allah will protect the religion
that is why the contracts are there. So we have to fulfill them.
Again, this is a little introduction which you know, a lot of that stuff will be addressed later on inshallah, let's connect the four chapters, what chapters are we talking about Baqarah Al Baqarah then lm Ron, that is 343 Anissa. And then if we add Al Fatiha so that is 2345. Right. In fact, he had the beginning of the Muslim, right elbow Corona connected Baqarah
in the Sir ilma. Look at the sequence here, very, very interesting.
The foreign prospective
Al Baqarah, very early madonie
and lm run mid. But again, these chapters were not revealed at once. We're talking about the initial what sort of the revelation of the chapter look at the Nisa, later madonie
el Medina is the latest of the Medina. So there is there must be a chronicle sequence there must it they must build towards something in different dimensions. Look at this now. Al Baqarah and Imran were paired together. Al Baqarah introduce that curriculum
or the foundation for the curriculum.
You are the best omo. I know some of you don't believe that. But that's your business. That's your issue.
You're the best oma brought out for mankind.
Your messengers the last message. Your book is the last book. I have chosen you to keep faith alive in earth until the Day of Judgment until I sit down he said to help you that
The way it is
with a crossbow Salim says there will always be a group of myeloma following the truth. There will always in this oma regardless,
the truth will never die in Islam. So, so that the man hatches here
the foundation for it and sola tillbaka man has just left the curriculum to be leaders
and also in Surah Allah Allah and Surah Baqarah Allah taught us how to deal with it
if you guys know that's the final caveat
is in that how we deal with the Manage toss disregarding was unclear regarding what look at those two words between the two rackets out there that tells me that you guys remember something that I said before
what is does the bus depot fault?
The Unseen you make the snake of the unseen right? What about the commands? We call it unclear compliance or semi Anahata so this is encircled by Corolla giving you the curriculum and how to deal with the curriculum we said the curriculum two parts always kalevala if
were in Makkah the speech of Allah that evolution whether it is talk about unseen or talk about do this or do not do this regarding the unseen Allah tala pas de requires from you what the man dropped from you. Does the What does the I believe it
even though I sometimes I don't understand but I believe it does it make sense but Allah is the one who told me I'm gonna believe it. Double our documents what should you do in
Santa Ana compliance I'm gonna do it to the best of my ability.
lm Ron emphasize the two threats to those two.
One what to fitness remember this to fitness? fitness will attempt those fitness to Chabot have misconceptions about the religion will will attack your
doubt make you doubt the unseen and it doesn't make sense it
And and remember in other Emraan who came to attack the prophets of Salaam in that area, the delegation of who
our delegation came they are trying to confer the profits are solid imagine this there will not aliens will lie that's if you read the verses it's it's it's heavy duty.
Imagine this are you
looking Allah Emraan
will attack the area of NPS compliance desires the story of offered the Muslims who are asked to stay on the top of a mountain and what happened
because they want to pick up what
again, this is how Allah teaches us in the Quran. That be aware of those two Fitness, Fitness.
Fitness. Fitness shovelhead will attack your personal fitness to Shahar will attack your compliance. Right. That's the two areas so Adam Ron came to up emphasize be steadfast. Yeah, you are Latina, morose, boo. Look at the last verse in Alhambra. Look at this, this blue wasabi. Wasabi. Look at this sub patience.
So as if the oma is given. The leadership is given a capital what is our capital?
Our Qibla what is our
MK our capitalism? Africa? Isn't that our capital? Say a pulusu homina nassima la Mancha Blackie melotti can see you're given a capital. You're given a curriculum. You're taught how to deal with it right. Now, go out there quantum higher on machine.
Look at the connection between Bukhara and Alhambra
look at an ISA in a certain manner that were paved.
Saw to NASA address the internal issues in the community, the family,
dealing with the minority groups,
and is still in you.
If you're a successful leader, you must treat people with justice and with mercy. justice and mercy are the basis of governors
rolling through administer them. So I came to turn all of the above, into a contract. Now these are contracts between me and you.
You're getting the connection here. Beautiful connection, you like it?
Talk to me.
So what is the connection? Can you tell me the connection?
Can somebody tell me the connection between the four chapters?
A curriculum is presented, how to deal with the curriculum, this curriculum is breaking down, is broken, broken is broken down into two unseen comments regarding the unseen makes us I believe it regarding the commands.
What should you do, semi Anahata we hear and obey. But be careful because shaitan has been allowed to leave you alone. damona 15 is not gonna leave you alone. They're gonna make you doubt the unseen, and they're going to try to get you to swim in the whims and desires. They're going to spoil those two for you. That's why you need to be steadfast in Alam Ron, now a sign that you're doing the right thing. You have built a strong character that believes in Allah, that steadfast, which will behave with justice and mercy towards the people. Now let's turn this into a contract and sign them. You're getting that beautiful connection.
Okay, the objective, higher aim here, the truth, your covenant to your obligations. That's the name that I chose. I really took it from the first verse in the surah. Yeah, you are Latina Manu, Alphaville aku, you can call it fulfill your covenants. Because remember, now everything is turning into a contract between you and
Allah subhana wa. So what is my evidence?
Let's look at evidence number one. The first verse in the surah is the main evidence for adopting the previously mentioned theme of the surah. Allah azza wa jal is turning all the obligations whether they are divine, or human, which must be fulfilled into covenants and contracts. Simply when we have a pledge or a promise
or assigned treaty, we must abide by it. And look at the verse. Yeah, uh, you had lady look at the first verse. Yeah, uh, you had larina Amano, our foo below code. Oh, II believe, fulfill your covenants. The surah begins with an appeal to the believers to fulfill all obligations as sacred. It puts forward ordinances about food cleanliness, and perpetual justice, pluralism, murdering an innocent soul stealing, oath, intoxication, gambling, superstitious superstitions, of all kinds hunting within the forbidden month. All of this is a contract, you can cross there. So this is the first evidence.
The second evidence is the name of the surah.
Look at verse 115.
What is the name? The name is the table.
The disciples of Isa at one stage they requested from him that Allah would bring them food, a table of food, they were hungry.
because some of the people they say, you know, they didn't believe like Ibrahim Ali Salaam, ever he wanted when he wanted to see the the, how Allah raises the dead.
them also they want to upgrade from what elbulli are keen to up. They want to see it. They want to see something they want to see a sign.
So Prophet Isa kept debating with them. Come on, let's not do that.
They ended up insisting on a prophet a semi that Allah made a covenant with them. I'm going to bring it down.
But whoever disbelieves after that.
He's going to be punished a punishment that no one else would have. So the contract right here, what did they do?
Not all of them. Some of them actually betrayed that and a lot turn them into
lalala the other one Kinsey's swine, that's when they turned it to swine.
So that's when they turned into swine. So again, that's a covenant Allah hat. In a way also, it's a warning to us, that if you don't fulfill my covenant
That's what you're going to have to go through, you're getting them. So the name of the surah is an evidence for that adopted theme. That's the point. Let's be focused here. Kabbalah is the third, Allah subhana wa Taala made mention of the nations before us. Look at verse 100,
verse number 12, and 13 you're gonna find Allah subhana wa tada talking about the covenants established with the children of Israel, the Jews and children of Israel, the Christians 514 fine to look at verses five, number 12. Those who are following us online. look at verses five, number 1213 and 14 from the chapter, Allah subhana wa Taala is talking about what
a covenant that he established with Benny sorry. And what did they do?
Like in Surah, Al Baqarah, Allah told us they didn't do very well.
look at the scene when when Prophet Musa has mentioned he said to them what?
Let's go to the sacred land, they said what?
No, there are people with exceeding power, there you are new Lord, go fight the battle and will. You don't do that that's not okay. That's not fulfilling the covenant.
That is not fulfilling the covenant. Also, there is a mention of Adam and his two sons.
There was a covenant there that you know that
you are to marry the sister from the next pregnancy. We know that the story there that you see for Adam to maintain the race, brothers and sisters may marry this is abrogated. Now that's the word abrogation, abrogation of abrogated right, abrogation abrogation. Yeah. So at one stage, marriage was between a sister and a brother. But how did they do it? If however, in each pregnancy, she would have a boy and a girl.
So the boy from that pregnancy would marry the girl from that pregnancy, so there is a swap.
So Cain did not like the deal. He did not like the covenant, he wanted to,
to change the contract.
Because his twin was very beautiful. The other one, according to him, she was not beautiful. So he wanted to marry his twin. So Allah, you know, when he went to his father, he said, Listen, let's both of you offer a call Bonnie.
And if your money is accepted, then we're going to abrogate this, that means
it's a sign that we could abrogate it. But if it was rejected, that means we're gonna have to stick to the contracts. And at this time, by the way, when you offer a Qurbani, there is always a sign that Allah accepted it, that a fire would come and burn what you offered, you don't need it anymore like us.
look at the mercy of the woman that we offer her body and we eat it. We, we enjoy, you know, whatever we're offering, but at the time, by the way, the offer of ghorbani aside that Allah accepted a fire would come and
burn the whole thing, you get nothing from it.
So the Qurbani of his brother was accepted.
Yet he didn't like it still, he went and killed what
to marry. Again, it's all of these are contracts between Allah and the people, but the people betrayed it.
Obviously, this is an evidence, Allah reminded us look at verse five, number five, seven, look at verse number seven in the surah. Allah has reminded us with the terms of our own covenant with guru wabi levy were Sakaguchi and the covenant that Allah has taken with you and when What did you say to this covenant? semia
Why didn't you say that? Didn't you say that? Come on fulfill it here on obey Did you pray five times a day didn't you say so now now Aparna we're on our way, how can you not praying five times a day
with Corona Mata la la comida colada, Taka can be pulled home Santa Ana upon
the questioning regarding this beautiful look at version 109. In the Day of Judgment, imagine this a law will gather all of us to be asked about our covenants.
Look at this verse. Yahoo, Maya Jima Allahu Sula. Aku mother.
What happened? How did you guys deal with the covenants cannula in Mallanna in a cantar de mucho
So there will be a questioning about our covenants in the Day of Judgment. The Prophet told us that none of you will move unless we're asked about five things and one word in four things. You know, we have a covenant how to deal with our wealth, we have a covenant how to deal with our health, we have a covenant how to deal with our money, with our children, with our youth with our life. What did you do with this?
by you, let's move to Part Four. And in my opinion, if you grasp this today, you're a smart man.
It's a sign that you're smart.
And that section by the way, I inserted it in there intentionally, to introduce the subject to you because this is a beautiful subject, therefore, it's really a key for our
Listen, every single command in Islam is there for wisdom. Allah is asking you to pray five times for our wisdom.
Allah is asking you to fast for wisdom, Allah is asking you to wear the hijab for wisdom, there is a wisdom behind there is a divine wisdom, Allah is asking you to grow a beard for wisdom,
to have a beard for a wisdom, there is a wisdom behind it. And this is what we call the objectives or the aims of the commands in Islam, a little introduction here to the subject.
If one reflects upon all the teachings, rulings, laws and guidance, one would find that ceria that's the Sharia, the sherea sherea is the religion Okay, not the word that the the foxnews are talking about Sharia is everything
promotes a set of values, there are objectives behind it. Scholars found a reason and and wisdom behind what it teaches. And there is a set of major objectives it aims to achieve. So when Allah asked me to pray five times a day, there is an aim behind it actually multiple aims, not just one that
these objectives sometimes are explicitly mentioned.
And sometimes, through what VB examination of the text it takes us cooler to see why
we're good so far. So the point we're trying to make here is that
the Quran and the Sunnah are not just bombala there must be one
reason behind it, wisdom behind it. Three major goals of the Sharia. Three major goals and remember those three major what is number one is to work on you.
You are the assets.
You are the halifa You are the one in charge, I want to produce a righteous man now.
The only way I'm gonna produce a righteous man is through introducing who is the creator.
Okay, no slaves here. Okay, we're all slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala. By examining the divine guidance, right away, you will find, you will see the first goal of Sharia is to develop the righteous human being, to be a source of goods for himself or herself, the community at large, and to reduce eliminate any bad that may occur from him or her.
That is why Islam teaches us to be honest, to be
pure to be because that will make you a good asset.
This takes place through the rituals. That's why we pray.
Moral system that a mainly of developing a righteous person, but the key here is knowing who's you created, and you will create for our wisdom.
And there is a heal after all these concepts, assemble together, beside the rituals beside how to deal with others will produce the righteous person out of you. So that's number one objective, main objective or righteous individual to justice, that Sharia justice for all.
Sharia promote justice.
And remember last time, Allah reminded us so many times in Surah Nisa 135 Yeah, you're Latina. Imagine, imagine. Imagine one time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to his companions Joaquin trying to intercede on behalf of a woman who stole
the Prophet said, If Fatima the daughter of Mohammed would steal Salah Salalah how to sell what Mohammed will do.
Now that's why corruption is if you know somebody
It's over you can justice.
Justice in Islam is a noble cause and comprehensive justice against your own enemies. People that you are fighting, you need to be fought just unfair with them. People who do not believe in your religion
and you need to understand this. You know, the there was a companion who killed almost brother
Omar had a brother. He killed him.
And after he killed him, he became a Muslim.
Fake him and he said tomar assalamu alikum walaikum salam wa falmer turned away like this.
Are you gonna wronged me? Now when Omar was enemies? He said, No, I'll never wrong you. I'm sorry, I can take you killed my brother. But
I'm not gonna run you. But you know. So you see Islam. differentiate between what you have in your heart
and the way that you behave? You understand what people I don't have to love you to give you justice, do I? Right? I don't have to love you to be 50 You
know, this example may not be liked a lot by their sisters but Rasul Allah, Allah Allah regarding Ayesha, he used to be more inclined to Ayesha, but he never wronged the others. Right? You see what is between you and Allah and your heart is between you and Armando because you have no control over that.
And that's that's the key. That's what justice is people are alive, He is the most important piece objective, which is going to take us to five holistic aims achieve benefits this religion is about benefits, masala
masala, you're always Sherry are keen to achieve benefits, and never states anything except to achieve a real Muslim benefits. Muslim scholars observed that all the teachings of Sharia are aimed at preserving and protecting five major benefits.
We call them necessities.
the freedom to believe, to worship
the life. Everybody has right to his life. He shouldn't be threatened. You know, in Islam, angels will curse you if you raise a gun. Some of us do it. We gotta teach this our children by the way, even with a toy gun, we shouldn't do that. pointing guns, you know, in Islam to another Muslim angels curse you. Even if you don't like this, you can even teach like this. Angels curse a person, a Muslim who does this. Because that's a threat. You can even do that.
And we're going to come to this the five necessities of the horizontal humps five necessities. bringing out benefits and removing harm is essential to the people,
those five holistic aims or necessities. Anything that protects these five aims is a benefit. And anything that compromises it is a harm that must be avoided. So the Sharia came to do this. So let's see how surah to remain ADA. That's the point here. How surah kilometer serve those five holistic aims for five necessities. What was number one? The reservation for?
What religion what is number two? life? What is number three? drogyny? What is number four?
intellect what is number five?
property. So let's see sort of the major religion.
The most important of them all have Woody. Why? Because this is why why Allah created you Why did Allah create you? To worship him to have deed to have religion that means if we don't worship Allah,
it's like you're using, you know,
scissors to to do work with it.
You're really if you're not worshiping Allah, you're not doing the thing I like to do for wama holla to Jean navall INSA Illa Leah Buddha and I have created you to worship me. So that's why this is your highest aim is to protect that to protect the religion.
Sharia makes it forbidden to even test people regarding their faith. And that's why Subhanallah they do this in the Muslim world and they don't understand what fitna to a shed do means that you expose somebody to fitna in his religion
you know all these soap operas and
stuff that they show in television. All these fake Imams and fake preachers on TV, who teach you people are the things are not religion that fitna for the people. That's far worse. That's why I look at the verse in surah baqarah and fitna is worse and more severe than killing because you're going to end this person up you're going to cause this person to lose his religion.
look at Surah Al Madinah. multiple examples, multiple verses that protect the deal. Number one, Allah perfected the deen for you. Isn't that one? Isn't that one. Look at number two. Very beautiful number two.
Oh you believe
may have them in common Dini.
If you turn back from Islam, you're not gonna harm Islam. Nothing
will lie I love this verse.
Yeah, you had a Latina woman
kumaun Dini, Sophia will be
de Latina meaning that in Arlen Cassidy uj tuna fish.
in the Liga la de Manya Sha, one law was
telling us if you want to leave Islam,
I will bring another people who will love Islam.
See, that's the whole thing is Islam is not gonna is not waiting for you. Islam doesn't die because of
right. And this is a look at the last verse of a hotmail Jay Z at Yahoo.
If you love Islam, then Islam should be the governing
legislation in your lives. don't replace Islam with what with Jay Z, with Jay Z. So this is an example of how the religion is protected. So let's look at the protection of life. And so Latin America, saving the life of one person, this verse famous verse was mentioned into automated,
remote universe I'm talking about if you save a life one person as if you saved up and guess this verse came after the murder, the first murder that happened in earth,
which is the son of Adam killed. Remember the story, one of the children killed the other one.
saving the life of one person is as if the life of all humanity is saved. Sharia forbid killing dictates that the most severe punishment for it is life. That's also prohibits injuring people harming physically symbolically, it encourage people to be honorable Lee, the story of the two sons of Adam is an evidence for this
reduction of the progeny.
Okay, I really want to drive that point across here. And I use two examples.
Why adultery is haram?
Why? Simply because of adultery, you may end up with a child.
This is add to
it's a threat to the institution of marriage.
why people don't like to marry anymore. Because they can fulfill imagine the only way for you to fulfill your sexual desires through marriage. And that was the pattern in the past, right? Everybody would get married, because that's the only way but now, why we see a lot of people's 35 and 25 years old. Oh, I'm not married yet. Later. Have you been married? What what you've been doing? not married? I mean, what's wrong with you? Well, that's the only way are you gonna fulfill that desire.
If this the only pattern that you have to fulfill that desire, then
that it's a threat to the institution of marriage. Again, why the institution of marriage is so important because children who are born into this world are entitled to be born to a father and a mother.
Not a boyfriend, not a girlfriend,
but committed individuals to the cause. That's the key.
That is the key.
That is why Look at verse number five in the surah.
lawful for you that chased women because those are the mothers
The People of the Scripture
and look at the look at the the famous story
at verse number 41.
There is a very interesting story after that verse number 41
Two Jews committed adultery
so one of them was from the highest ranking in the society.
So they said, You know what? The ruling in the tower
that they are to be what
we want to say, you know, Santa Monica
that's in the tower, the Mosaic law
that's actually to death even that was obvious when you know the famous story that when they wanted to stone a lady and Jesus said any feel free, you know that it's there it's written
for they said, Let's go to Rasulullah Salah sell and maybe we'll find that better ruling than this, for when they came to the profits or loss and you see the people who send them listen, if he tells you we have to
then just come back. Because what they used to do, they used to paint that person black, with with with with the sand and stuff, and they bought him backwards in a donkey and they make him go around the
instead of that.
So they went to the process of selling, who's sitting next to the Prophet Abu lightness Allah, the Jewish rabbi who accepted Islam already.
So he said to them, I'm gonna rule
on what you have in your book in the tower.
So they said, Bring the tower open, read. So they came to the verse about
and they passed
a bill of necessity passed it, it's their
fair share hit again. This is why, you know, there is that severe punishment for that. And we still have this in Islam. Why to protect that institution? And and some of the sisters may ask, why the hijab that's actually for that reason. Because a woman, a lady should not be a target of temptation, subject of temptation. And I always say this to you know, non Muslims when we debate with them. When you see a nun
you know what a nun is right? Do you ever consider flirting with a nun?
Do you ever consider no never
because her dress code is sending
a clear message if you're interested in me see my daddy but somebody was walking around wearing that stuff and a do beauty stuff like that. That's the whole thing the message that you're sending
and that is why we're in Islam we have this sometimes individual liberty or freedom is compromised for the welfare of society at large yell arbitrary mad inshallah.
So we finished with number three. Number four is very just read it is the final verdict regarding intoxicants was revealed in soda.
We know that
stages of intoxication right.
How are you?
One of the benefits the Masada which the Sharia of Islam came to protect, to promote his intellect the human intellect
The reasoning and that is why in Surah, Narita.
Obviously, the the final verdict regarding on toxicants was revealed. We know that intoxications took stages, like,
you know, from one level to another, but the final Don't come near it. Why? Because this will affect what
your mental capacity
some of you may or may not know this or hear this for the first time, you know how many people are killed in America because of drunk driving
and not drunk intoxication.
85,000 and I'm talking about the year 2014, that's
85,000 Americans are killed every year because of
people losing their, you know,
mental capacity. Imagine if America is attacked by another country and 85,000 are killed? What will they do?
Imagine Islam kills them What?
Come on, that's one of the greatest benefits that you can do.
The protection of intellect.
So you look at the final one, the protection of wealth.
The ruling of
was mentioned in
the verse 38.
Of course, therefore, we have to be careful here because a lot of people are watching this. And then when I say the chef is talking about cutting off the hands, all of this has to be conducted in a criminal.
courtroom justice. First of all, the whole society has to agree to it. We are in a minority in America, we cannot do that. Even individuals. America must legislate that for us to do it. You're getting that and a certain process have to be followed. This guy is accused now we have to investigate. Is he guilty or not? Where are the witnesses? All of that, but you just don't grab people and what? We don't do that. Okay, just a disclaimer here.
But again, these are the five benefits necessities. Islam came to protect the most important the religion,
the life the
progeny, the family, the arm, the lineage for the intellect. Five is the wolf and surah to marry that because it's the final chapter revealed in the Quran contributed to this and we give you multiple evidence for each one of those.
I don't think we're gonna have time for this today.
So at least you know that we're going to start here but we have 16 calls and under each one of those comes a whole subject of the sword that's why the surah is divided into 16 subjects but I'll have you go through them quickly inshallah we still have like six seven minutes
we're gonna do this quickly so at least but we're gonna go back next inshallah and talk more about this the first one
oh II believe for fulfill your covenants.
If you don't fulfill your covenants, you are in trouble.
And I love your equity look, we believe Yeah, you're Latina Mr. Oh, boo boo, boo the left. I made a lot of things for you. Just a few things come on. Few things.
There's a lot of halon
because for information for Bani Israel, Allah took away a lot of good things from them because of what?
Look at the verse fabuleux mean mina levena hairdo have run, I lay him back in.
Because of the transgression of those
we made a lot of good things are lawful to them. The bad things are good things but as a punishment for life stealing you are learning fulfill your covenants otherwise well I'll make it difficult on you. So this is the first call
then violate the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah mentioned certain things. Food. Look at verse number two
Yeah you are Latina Amanullah to Hello shy. Boy, don't come near them. ACLs tell you if it is something that is serious, huh? It's sacred. don't violate it. Don't open it up. Don't say, Why don't I do that? when something has sanctity? It's called harami Come come near it
don't attack the people who came to natural haram and this is also another thing because
the Qureshi did this to the Muslims not because they did that you're gonna do this because you're now in charge of the mosquito haram you shouldn't do this. Look at number three.
The purity Sala I have to
imagine all the previous verses talks about what you can eat what you can marry. Now I want you to talk about your purity now and it begins with the purity is to worship me, your soul, take care of your soul. I talked about marriage talked about food, what you can eat, you know that the diversity of the the meat is there for a metallic meter to Adama concilium verse number three, what you can eat the meat that we had a McDonald's, the Costco meat all that stuff that he asked about is mentioned in that so and that verse. Now I want your spiritual purity to by watching me feed your spirit too. Right? And everything begins with work with the data.
And then Allah subhanho wa Taala is again reminding you to be just in fear, because you're in charge.
You're in charge. And then comes in this beautiful thing that do not let animosity and hate that you harbor in your hearts towards another human being to be wrong to wrong them.
You don't have like I said, I don't have to love you to be fair to you.
I don't have to love you to be kind to you. I don't have to.
There is a separation between what's in the heart and what's what.
That's very important. You being in charge.
Which one is that?
Number five, what?
Okay, number five. Now remember,
how am I giving you support?
I will give you support, you know a lot of people tried to harm me before I helped you out. Right? How because you guys kept your covenant.
Now remember this, I will keep protecting you and taking care of you. Provided that you uphold your covenants with me.
And you will find the surah who are going into Bani Israel and talking about how they betrayed their covenant, how they did not fulfill their covenants.
Now comes in
cool number six, strive jihad in the course of Allah.
And you can read that in sha Allah and seek the right means to Allah subhana wa Taala again,
and I don't have the luxury of time to go through the sub subjects under each one of these
is the famous verse, which Christian and Jews go after us do not take the Jews and the Christians as protective friends.
What is meant by a TF
And I have a whole lecture about 11 barah. And what does it mean? Do love them for the ship?
because some of them you may love that mean you're allowed to marry a Christian, right?
Correct. You're allowed to marry a Jew right? Why would you marry a Christian and a Jew beside the green card? That's another issue but I mean if you have your green card and if you have your status everything is good. I mean why would you go because you have what?
You love her I mean you you but not for her religion. You understand? Rasul Salam liked his uncle. He wanted to guide him and he was a careful
for that is what is meant that's the bottom line and I don't take them because of that. And now when it comes because technically
It will never happen if you actually think about it, it will never happen that Allah will place love towards somebody because of what they believe. It will never happen because
you know Allah is the one who turns the heart to love and to resent
Abdur Rahim right?
You're gonna think the * is crazy now. My heart. I want you to love Abdur Rahim. What do you think about that?
Can I do that? I can do that. So my heart is gonna love you. Yes, a
Yagi no way you don't lose who turns the heart to love and resent? The heart is in the hands of who?
So how in the world? Allah will turn the heart to love somebody who resents Allah. It doesn't work
for the bottom line No, it's not gonna work.
you know Subhan Allah we live in at a time when
we really admire the progress of the Christian and they do they excelled in this world don't they? They are leading the world right in the high tech in
