Coffee. Okay. Let's begin our lecture brothers and sisters in Islam. Surah, two Toba, the higher aim of Surah otowa.
You can always come back. Isn't that what the concept of Tao obeys? That you can always come back to Allah Subhana Allah, isn't it? And surah two Toba is about this brothers and sisters in Islam.
For you, moving forward.
Let me get myself set here.
My agenda today introduction to the surah
The only surah in the Quran. There is no Bismillah. At the beginning, when you recite surah October you don't say Bismillah.
The only sort of why There must be a reason.
Names of the surah. This surah has so many names, so many names.
Why so many names, descriptive names.
The higher aim of the surah like I explained, you can always come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Never too late
shaitan said when he got in trouble, I will not leave them for a second. The children of Adam I will misguide them. Allah said as long as there is a soul embodied in them, I will and they asked for forgiveness. I will forgive them. So you can always come back to Allah subhanaw taala. So one of the Toba brothers and sisters in Islam, that's for you to detect. why we chose that higher aim. You can always come back to Allah. This surah this grace is the hypocrites.
This Grace is disgraces the people who try to destroy Islam from within.
You see, they try to destroy Islam from outside
by fighting it.
When they were unable they joined Islam, the hypocrites and they try to bring it down.
Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling them Don't do this.
You can still come back to me. Isn't that beautiful? Isn't that beautiful? So Pinilla.
We'll get to this
the historical context of the surah it's extremely important.
Understanding the historical context of the surah is extremely important. Why?
Because there are five sweeping I only chose one, five sweeping announcements made in the story.
Who amongst you remember or recall fox news? Kill the infidels? It's there.
That is why you need to understand the context of this verse. So you can defend the Quran.
Yeah, kill the infidels is there but it has a context.
You can cherry pick you cannot.
If you take it out of context, yeah, you're gonna conclude that but only ignorant people or people who have the tendency to have animosity against Muslims will run after you, but people who are reasonable and just then faith in their assessment of the situation.
I will not follow you
for understanding the context, the historical context of this chapter is extremely important.
That is why I given a section in particular to the most misunderstood verse in the Quran
Chapter nine verse number five obon the most half, you will see there kill the infidels.
But of course it has a context. You don't just
and then we're going to give you an insight on some of the subjects considering the higher aim of the surah in sha Allah. Are you ready? Are you ready to learn the Quran?
The Quran is beautiful when you understand it.
Before I begin, because I'm afraid I'm going to forget this. So panela surah will unveil the surah, which we talked about its higher aims yesterday, it's higher aim yesterday, spoke about the first battle ever in Islam, which was defensive.
Surah, a Toba, or Bara talks about the last battle in Islam,
which was the opposite and the offensive but in a way to defend yourself. Sometimes you have to be offensive to be defensive.
Even you know if you guys are familiar with soccer, I, you know, they tell you the best way to defend
is to attack.
That's the best way.
Now brothers and sisters in Islam,
the two surahs are joined
without Bismillah in the middle.
That is why those who understood the Hadith whoever
studies the first seven long sutras in the Quran, they consider the infallible Toba to be one surah one chapter even though and Val talks about the first battle. It Toba talks about the last battle. So between them something like seven, eight years, more or less,
but yet they will join together.
The seven lunar Surah Al Baqarah. Allah Emraan
an iron those are five
are off six
and fell and Toba seven. Technically they are eight but they are seven they are considered seven because of them fell and Toba are joined together by
let's introduce the surah to you.
It is a matter of surah obviously revealed in the ninth year after hijra
it is number nine in the most half and it has 129 verses. It has 129 verses. It is the last seventh longest surah like I mentioned a minute ago.
It is where the first third of the Quran ends upon Allah surah Toba concludes you see the Quran has 30 Jews
the ending of the first 10 parts in October so the first third of the neurons Imagine if you guys understood what I've been explaining the last two weeks, you're really able to understand at least the aims the higher aims of one third of the neuron Isn't that beautiful? Isn't that beautiful? What lights beautiful?
It is one of the last revealed longer surah in the most half.
It was revealed after a battle Coulter book which was led by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Here it is it listed 55 characteristics characters of the hypocrites.
That is why the surah is called that this grace sir, that this grace or that digger?
Why? The magnifier? Why? Because a lot all the Prophet about the hypocrites in the community.
You see, hypocrisy did not exist in Islam in Mecca. Even initially it was not there.
But when Islam started conquering, especially after the conquest of Mecca, and a lot of people started joining Islam hypocrites because there is a lot of benefits.
So when Allah Subhana Allah commanded the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to Marsh,
to the book, which is in the border between Saudi Arabia now on Jordan.
Days nights traveling from Medina today. One way
the hypocrisy did not go. The hypocrites did not go.
So Allah, it started killing the omada de la hypocrites already in Medina
55 characteristics it also revealed some sincere Muslims three of them for slacking gabab nomadic top of the list.
two companions who join beggars.
Join beggar bedri
it praise the sacrifices of the prophets, Allah Salam and all the devout Muslims, those who went with him on that journey.
Because the circumstances were really tough to it was tested, it was summer hot.
The people in Medina they work as farmers. So in a way they
had to leave town at the time when they are about to harvest the fruits.
Like I mentioned,
it was a tough fight because you're going to find the Roman Empire.
That's a different battle.
So only people who are devout were there.
It listed the different types of Muslims who emerged within the Muslim community after the rise of Islam and towards the completion of the mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
It provided the method by which the Muslim Ummah should deal with the non Muslims. Whether combatants or non combatants.
We don't do things based on the desire, we have a system in Islam.
this surah invites everyone mentioned in it to make repentance it tells them all of you have a chance to come back to Allah Subhana Allah
Subhana Allah so imagine and that's why the higher end of the surah is this. You can repent you can come back allies this greasing the hypocrites you cannot imagine, imagine Allah he's talking so harsh about them. But yet he's telling them you can come back.
One of the reasons why the sole I did not start with Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim You want to know why? Because of the first word barah Allah disowns
imagine this that's why you don't start with Laura because Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim reflects mercy
So you can say Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim Bara a two min a la hora de la Latina to Mina Mashallah Kini can do that?
That's why there is no Bismillah but in spite of this Allah called the Toba surah Toba and Allah spoke about the concept of Toba in the surah and Allah is telling you regardless whether you're a hypocrite, whether you're a Catholic, whether you are fighting Islam, whether you are harming you always can come back to me.
And that should be your attitude brothers and sisters in Islam always.
The established name of the surah is a Toba, which means repentance. The word Toba was repeated 17 times in the surah
more than any other chapter in the Quran. Of course, the name is a Toba, the name the name of the surah is it over and the concept of a Toba was explained and mentioned 17 times in the sword.
Even though Allah subhana wa Taala is talking about people who wanted to harm Islam, people who slacked people who are not good Muslims. Let's put it this way. Like me.
People who are in trouble, he's still telling them what come back to Allah subhana wa tada
why you know Bismillah like I mentioned a minute ago Bismillah was not revealed with surah Titova, nor did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam command the writers to write it.
And there is an author about this
epilogue abas asked of men of no offender of the Allahu anhu How come you did not write this bill at the beginning of Bara I said this is how the Prophet told us to write it.
We don't do things in our own.
The Prophet told us not to write it
so that the Toba can be considered as part of the previous sorrel and fell as suggested by some companions. That's another reason. But here is the reason which is very popular because basically
Left is mercy and safety and salata, Toba revealed with the sold for punishment, this association and adapt for disbelievers and hypocrites. Therefore, there is no compatibility. They are not compatible Bismillah and the beginning of the Sora are not compatible. You can, they are contradictory, you're getting it. So these are three reasons why I love a mammal Razia Fokker Razi, he said something very interesting,
something very special worthy of sharing with you. He said, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself did not dictate it, dictate Bismillah Allahu Allah, Allah at the beginning of the surah therefore the companions did not brief exit did not write it, and their successors followed them. This is a further proof of the fact that octopus cave has been taken to keep the Quran intact, so that it should remain in its complete and original form. You see that? You see that? The is? Why the surah is no Bismillah that's an evidence and we have to live in our best wishes he must admit that he asked of man and we know of man was one of the scribes of management. I fell in love the
alarm under no rain. He used to be one of the people who would write the revelation after the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He said listen, the prophet dictated this way. That tells you the Quran is intact.
The two famous names of a Toba are a Toba and Bara
the surah is known by those two names. It is called the Toba because it stresses the nature of tobacco dependence and mentioned the conditions of its acceptance. look at verses 102 and 118.
Bara because of the beginning release, or the act of setting free or getting laid off
is taken from the first word of the surah Dada Mina la
de la la Vina minalima shrieking
a lot. This owns those you have a covenant with we're gonna come to this in a minute
There are other descriptive names,
which was attributed to companions or breed assessors.
The punishing Surah Surah will either are they familiar man choose that.
Al Mukesh Kisha, you know, the sweeper when you sweep the house, because it's weaved all the bad apples in the community. That's what's called the mucus Tisha the sweeper like when you sweep you know, you clean
this is normal.
The scanning Surah Al booth, you know, when you scan your computer for viruses, the scanner,
you know when and then you end up with
stuff that you have to quarantine to protect your computer from
malware and all that stuff.
I'll move on a Fira
by inherit a blue yazeed illimitable asteroid by the way is the one who called the hill booth or the scanning the scattering Surah bhaile heritage noisy, Jamia that this grazer and this is not best and best tells you something because of my best understanding of the Messiah of the Quran, the aims and all of that
you know, no bass was young when the profit made for him. Just to show you know, bass in particularly when he speaks of the Quran, don't make sure that you have the authentic narration. Because there are five chains. Three of them are weak only two are authentic. But quickly in sha Allah just to give you a break, relax a little bit.
Omar Abu khattala de la used to keep up the live now best old was in his shoulder and his counts. Tablet now Best Young compared with the elder of the Sahaba the old of the Sahaba so they used to say, Omar Jani How come you're keeping best here? He's a man I mean, we're all community members here. Is it okay. Hold on.
Elijah, Allah He will set or I said hello una de de la jolla
for sub Bethlehem de la because tofu in new Karnataka, how do you explain that to us
The victory of Allah has come
and you see in the delegations coming to you to Medina accepting Islam, then make this be Honister fog.
glorify Allah His name and see our start for Allah. Allah indeed is the acceptance of repentance.
So everybody explained it the way that I explained it to you.
Exactly like I explained it in English.
What do you say about best about this? let you know what he said. Allah is telling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you're about to die the higher aim of the solar you're about to die.
Because your mission is complete.
And when you complete something in Islam you make a step far when you finish the Salah, what do you say I start full stop for last up for law. When you finish the head, you can Oh karela minalima hacia una bill as Harry home yesterday, they hardly sleep at night. And when they wake up, when when the sun is about to rise, the siesta for la shaiya
fasting has stopped through law at the end of the month. So
it's a practical way of saying stuff for a long time. The point is look at the opinion of Abdullayev now best that this grace or alpha, because it disclosed almost 55 characteristics of the hypocrites
the announcer by patata because it means their bad intentions public.
It brought out the inside
waiting the inside out, you know, out
the digger and half euro because it dug deep into their secrets and their secrets scheming and plotting
al mon Akira the hammer because it hammered on the places where they used to hide their bloods. So all of these are just names descriptive of the surah Look at this. So panela
all these names, and that's what I love.
The surah has other names which more descriptive of the different segments of the Muslim community just by reflecting upon the other names of the surah.
One can produce the higher aim easily. Allah azza wa jal is announcing the characters the tricks the Bloods, the behaviors of all the devious the wicked segment, the wicked segments in the Muslim community, yet Allah is telling them, you can always come back to me
that Allahu Akbar, you have a chance, you're getting that you're getting the connection here. You can always come back.
And that's the attitude of the Prophet as well. And that's the attitude of the people of Dawa. Don't give up and people don't.
It's better to gain them in your sight
than them staying your enemy. You're getting that
You can always come back obviously the surah introduces to us the different segments of the Muslim community, which emerged to destroy Islam from within. Despite that, Allah is calling upon them to make up with Allah and to repent, because you can always come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala even the first word, which was the reason why the surah did not start with Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim yet Allah is calling them to make Toba will lie. So after this Allah in terrible war, aka masala atta was again zakka 31 who can fit Diem
for Hulu sebelah Whoa, oh, if they do this, no problem.
We come to the most misunderstood verse in the Quran, which has killed the infidels.
Brothers and sisters in Islam.
I said this always.
The Quran is a unique scripture.
Because it was it was not revealed all at once. It was revealed in 23 years all together.
And the Quran was revealed in bits and pieces
as if there is a communication between divine
and the community of the Sahaba. And that's why whoever turns away from the way of the Sahaba is really fool. Imagine a community that Allah used to interact with them in a manner
They've divine enough. not physically, I don't mean that physically, hopefully you guys know about this about me.
What I'm trying to say is when they do something wrong, Jabra l comes down.
Don't do that. When they do something right, Jabra l comes, this is good keep on that.
A community that Allah was
managing, if I may use I don't think managing is actually not proper with Allah. And that's the problem with English here administering maybe
their behaviors, approving or disapproving and all of this.
you will find out that this
community started with one individual Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam then selective community members.
For three years they are worshipping Allah in secret. So there is a Quran that deals with this.
Now time to announce there is a Quran that deals with this.
to give our
and the reaction of the non Muslim community was really bad. And Mecca. Let's look for another place.
Medina, the first Muslim community established in the face of this earth, Medina,
people started attacking the first Muslim community better or 100.
Then peace was put together. The true civil should be the covenant,
normal fighting, even though the terms of that treaty was were very unjust, unfair to the Muslims, but yet so panela it was a success in Nevada, Angelica fact and Medina, was revealed. So that in fact, was a lot of the Muslims, by the way, are under the impression that surah two In fact, was revealed. Regarding fat Mecca no surah two fat was revealed regarding should they be the peace treaty the Muslims had with the disbelievers called for the baby.
Why? Because now we can give Dawa freely.
Then the non Muslims broke their covenant, the conquest of Mecca, happened, brothers and sisters in Islam.
So every period every stage
of the 23 years had poron related to it. Imagine subrata Toba is top of the line, top of the line. This is the final cut of the Muslim community.
Muslims, the Arabian Peninsula
are all Muslims. Muslims now are going on the attack because there were encroachments by the Roman Empire. So the Muslim did not trigger the attack. No, but they have to go and stop them. They had to go to stop them, brothers and sisters in Islam.
But yet finally Muslims were marching for the Quran that you read, it has to be understood in that context. You cannot apply to Muslims living in America as a minority group.
You cannot apply to Muslims who don't have a system who don't have enemies who don't have a leadership, you can do that. And that is why these guys what they end up doing. They take that Koran out of context. And this verse, which Fox News uses all the time killed in look at the Quran? Yeah, it's dead. I can deny
you as a Muslim cannot deny that this verse is in the most half. It's dead, but you have to understand it in context brothers and sisters in Islam.
When we read surah Toba,
we must take into consideration the historical context to properly understand some of the quoted sweeping declarations which are we'll use by the islamophobes
to the famous lamb, specially kill the infidels one, the famous verse which is number five,
and chapter a Toba. Look, look, look, look how they did it. When the sacred month have passed, then kill the infidels. What do you find them, capture them, be seized them, prepare for them. Each and every ambush course. Anybody who reads this verse out of context, it's an invitation for violence 100% nobody can doubt that. But listen, know, the Koran is a unique scripture because it has an
context. It has a context.
Those who campaign against Islam and who are ever keen to dismiss the Quran as a divine book, they always come and say, Look at that your god, look at your Allah says kill the what can allies, you see you're not getting it.
They promote these allegations and every occasion to attack Islam, it is extremely essential for Muslims living in the West, like myself and you, as a minority, to emphasize the historical context of this chapter, to be able to explain the most under misunderstood verse in the most half.
The surah has historical context, pay attention to this, please, please pay attention to this, you're going to enjoy this.
One of the last reveal surah revealed almost towards the completion of the mission of the prophets mission very similar to the Surah 110 that I just quoted, so panela for no reason I mentioned that but it served me here. The author of Abdullah best so rottenness.
Ally stilling the Prophet tell us your mission is done. That was actually around that time too. It's very essential to explain it in light of the historical background. So as to the ministry that its threats and warnings related to an ongoing state of historic hostility that was specific to its era and will have no direct relevance in later era, let alone some 1400 years later Yeah, our time.
First of all, brothers and sisters in Islam it must be understood that Islam is a way of life. Yeah, it was lamb is a way of life.
Imagine Islam teaches you and me how to go to the bathroom.
You think Allah is not going to teach us how to fight?
The characters of fighting your character when you fight?
In a declared battle?
Yeah, if Islam is the lifestyle is everything Islam is not just inside the masjid and when you know, Islam structures, your manners in different areas.
When when you are asleep with your wife, Islam teacher teaches you what to do. Imagine this.
That's the beauty of the religion. The Quran being the first divine source of Islam was revealed and completed in 23 years, like I said a minute ago, the Quran presented different evolving stages, maybe the word models doesn't for individuals and communities throughout the 23 years why? Why brothers and sisters Islam. So later on, we can choose our stage, which suits our time
would suit our circumstances.
We always talk about our brothers and sisters in China, for example,
who are going through what they are going through, right?
They can adopt the first stage which is the three years the secret stage, the second stage applies to them.
Right now, quite frankly, we're living at a Mackie towards the end of the Mackie stage, all of us
we don't have a place that we can call a Muslim community. Unfortunately, even the place we're hoping that they are going wild now with
wickedness, holding parties and, and inviting concerts and
singers to make, you know, the place we they are, there is no place in earth unfortunately. And I want to tell you, it's going to be hard. Nobody's going to allow you because they know the power is there. That when you initiate that community like the Medina community,
you see it's very difficult.
The Quran presented different evolving stages models for individuals and communities throughout. This explains to you why the adjusting, understanding who graphy this era of the Prophet and his companions during those 23 years is a prerequisite to understand the Quran. No one brothers and sisters in Islam in his sound mind should explain the Quran without being very well grounded, well versed in the sila.
ofii al Qaeda is more Verbal newzoo the reason for the revelation of certain chapters and certain verses.
The revelation dictated the actions and responses of the prophets as he progressed with his mission. It dealt with gradual rise of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam from rejected
messenger with barely a handful of followers
in his native town Mecca, where he preached for some 12 years, to an immigrant fleeing to Medina. And finally the most revered, admired and obeyed Prophet, have practically the whole of the Arabia at the close of his mission, imagine that look at the evolving
evolution. Right, the beautiful
hence any attempt to cherry pick its elements in isolation, and to judge the whole on their basis will indeed be making a mockery I'm talking about the Quran that you have to apply the context of the Messiah. That's why we will always we have some mecu Quran madonie Quran makiko Ron madda Nicola, not only this, like Sora Toba, we know that there's not just madonie it's towards the end of the madonie.
The Nine key method over 10 years,
the ninth year, the year before the death of the professor Salah.
Obviously, if you take this verse, in which verse number five in the surah, in isolation of its historical and Quranic context, you will understand that it is an open ended command to kill non Muslims, quite frankly, anybody who reads it. The first hand is what? Yeah, but that's not it. It talks about a whole different thing.
Look at the verse
or any context, let's look at the preceding and succeeding verses. Okay? For you to understand, I know some of you and about to be done here.
When the Muslims held
the truce of alpha via the six years after hijra with the Qureshi and their alliances, tribes who are in alliance with them, even though the conditions of this truce of that contract or that
treaty, were extremely unjust, unfair, imagine honorable hottub lost it like he lost his mind. He lost I'm sorry, I'm sorry. He lost his temper, not mine. I'm sorry. It's very disrespectful stuff for Allah. He lost his timber Yani because of the terms of this ruse,
yet who violated it?
who violated it?
The disbelievers they ended up violating the terms and attacking alliances of the Muslims,
tribes who are in alliance with the Muslims.
So this term, this covenant was to protect
disbelievers that they still can take the idols around the Kaaba, they can go and do tours around the Kaaba naked.
So now when they broke the covenant, and after the conquest of Mecca, and some Muslims, they always wonder why did the Prophet why the Prophet did not perform Hajj right away? Why did he delay towards the end? Because the disbelievers used to bring their idols around the cover and they used to go around naked. These to make the off naked.
Allah didn't want his messenger to perform Hajj like that.
Now, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent Abu Bakr
radi Allahu Sadiq. They later on he followed him with Omar Abdullah pobre Allah Han I'm sorry with olive Natalia lavon.
To me Declaration
on the day of Hajj, the day of alpha
those who broke the covenant the tribes they have four months to free Mecca to take away that I those four months
barah to Mina la hora de la Latina to minalima shrieking seaholm Phil Oh the Autobot ashwani
Allah hamaca zylka feeding your four month
after those four months, the Muslims are at war with you. So this is a declared war.
You see if you read that verse as if you sit and snipe them while they are nothing, no, that's a declared war.
Why then wherever you find them, because the Arabs used to glorify the Kaaba, they never kill anybody inside
Imagine if somebody kills somebody, his father, and he would go sits in the Kaaba seeks protection in the car. But if he's in the car, if he stays there for a year, no one can come near him, no one can come near him. Imagine this. So Allah is telling them up, snipe them, kill them when you find them even inside the cabin, because this isn't the clear roof.
You're getting that's the context of the verse. Other than that, no, look at this. Let's look at the preceding. And the succeeding verses indicate
that it was addressing the bagans who broke the truce of Arabia peace treaty. This is however totally lost. If you read the verse just like that. One must read the long opening verses the first 14 verses in order to conclude that
add to this a warning was given to them which is the four month so it wasn't like yes, they broke the covenant and but you have four months, we're fighting.
Otherwise come and you know, do what you have to do for indelible while in aquadome shakiness. jurica durata, is maka llama la out like this.
Now, the historical context of the various documentaries find the disbelievers will you find them and all of this yet Allah said, but if they repent, then bring them back to you. Why I mentioned the Kaaba. Remember the status of the Kaaba traditionally,
yani the Arabs were not to fight in the vicinity of the Kaaba, now ally stealing them if they use the Kaaba as a safe haven. You may find them there, that's okay. However, the vegans who were honoring the Treaty of peace and not helping anymore against the Muslims were to be given time until the treaty is over. Imagine this.
Those who did not violate Don't do this. Only again is those who violated But there is another edition here. Those who did not violate they are not at war with you but they are not allowed near the Kaaba with their idols. Which is another declaration Yeah, you're Latina Amano enamel Mashallah una JSON file I have trouble mosquito Coronavirus. So this is the context I really wanted to focus on this because this is important.
Subjects considering the higher aim very easy brothers and sisters in Islam, Allah spoke about the hypocrites, the slack in believers. Here are the references, the immigrants and an unsolved verse 100. The needy Muslims who felt bad not being able to join because they did not have the means to join the Muslim army 9192 the three companions who were sincere. Two of them were bedri plus cobbled, nomadic or the Alon that Allah accepted while a fella 30, Latina, Hulu, the Bedouins so Allah mentioned the segments of the community. Oh, Allah subhana wa tada spoke about dealing with non Muslims combatants and non combatants. Verse one to 28 guidelines. Brothers and sisters in Islam
we don't find non combat and Muslims we don't do that
combat and meaning that they are at war with you.
And it has to be a declared war brothers and sisters in Islam. Also people have the book combat and non combat in 28 to 37. So panela the conclusion the last two verses and invitation to everyone to repent
