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

we continue inshallah tonight with the highest aim

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

the seeds of the Quran

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

the objective

00:00:57 --> 00:01:02

not have yet what they call it at DEF Cyril McCarthy de

00:01:03 --> 00:01:08

that naturally when you speak in

00:01:10 --> 00:01:17

in a form of the soldier like the soldier has a beginning and has an end You must have a title

00:01:18 --> 00:02:10

for that speech, like the surah you know, any sort of the Quran it has a beginning and it has an end. So there must be a higher aim. You know? So Pamela, when we give a hook up he will ask you what is the title? What subjects are you going to talk about? Exactly the Quran and this is the wisdom why Allah subhana wa tada divided the Quran into 114 chapters. If there was no aims, individual aims for these students. Why do we have the separators between them? Why do we have to say Bismillah and the sutras overstocked, another surah why each one has a name for this is the time of the year we are doing and I want to tell you this Pepsi's relies on the classical disuse, you know, we have the

00:02:10 --> 00:02:53

analytical tafsir lower Valley, we have the subjective or thematical seed, which is the classical Tafseer this Tafseer comes from the top of this, you know, because without these other types of facility, I cannot come up with that higher aim you agree. So you have to know the details for you to be able to produce that higher aim. So this type is called the purposeful type of Tafseer. The objective aim Tafseer where you come up with one aim for a chapter and you try to assemble and understand the whole chapter in light of that aim

00:02:54 --> 00:03:39

that you try to throw. So when you're reciting the Quran, you're thinking about this chapter. I decided, so Abraham tonight, you know, and that's the chapter would you know Subhanallah I never thought about this verse because of that higher aim. Imagine that we choose the highest aim what the curse of disbelief You know, this verse, which the last Thursday I decided, method levena cafaro of Europe became a man whom caromed initiated that be here, one of the curses of disbelief, that imagine those who don't have to hate who do not have monotheism, even if they do something good in the Day of Judgment is gonna turn into ashes in a windy day. That's the verbal method will lead in

00:03:39 --> 00:04:10

imagine, so that that add up to the I didn't include it here. But you see when you're deciding and thinking about that aim, and that's the whole idea is when you decide you're thinking about this theme, I and I, for the first time I almost thought about Okay, why? Because they don't have to eat and all of that. But it's the first time now. Imagine somebody that those non Muslims they go and do all these good things, they go to help the orphans and help but alas, telling them whatever you're doing, if you don't have to, he

00:04:12 --> 00:04:22

doesn't help. And that's what the verse and this is what is the curse of, of, of not having the heat of not having enough not having faith and that's the whole idea here.

00:04:23 --> 00:04:25

inshallah, today, we are

00:04:26 --> 00:04:30

talking about surah Ibrahim alayhis salam.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:38

And remember when we spoke about Surat Al Baqarah. You remember that?

00:04:39 --> 00:04:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala given us two models, one model

00:04:46 --> 00:04:50

which field didn't succeed Who are those? Benny?

00:04:52 --> 00:04:59

Benny is right. But Allah subhanho wa Taala given us the model of who, Ibrahim and his family and his set

00:05:00 --> 00:05:27

To us What? Follow that. So Ibrahim is a special messenger in Islam Yahuwah and imagine there is no status higher than the status that Allah tells you. I have taken him for a friend. You know, and actually the word friend is not accurate translation. The word Haleakala, you know,

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

Haleakala is

00:05:31 --> 00:05:36

his very special person, for the surah is about him.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:47

And we chose the title or the higher aim of the soul to be near a metal man when it comes to

00:05:48 --> 00:05:57

the virtues, or the benefits or the blessings, or the boundaries which believe brings to you

00:05:58 --> 00:06:01

and the curse of disbelief.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:11

Try now to connect a Brahim with a rock with the thunder and the three chapters before it.

00:06:12 --> 00:06:19

Imagine this, Allah subhanho wa Taala told us to be patient and use.

00:06:20 --> 00:06:22

Don't compromise in

00:06:23 --> 00:06:31

patient on the truth. Don't compromise the truth. And don't the space in universe

00:06:32 --> 00:06:33


00:06:34 --> 00:06:41

Serato rot last week, because the truth you have one day it will reveal

00:06:43 --> 00:06:44

it will reveal

00:06:46 --> 00:07:03

because it is so real like the thunder. So you're striving to work in hearts towards work towards this truth which one day will prevail, then Allah is coming to you in Surat Ibrahim and telling you it's an AMA to which a bounty

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

it's a bounty. It's not something that it's gonna benefit you.

00:07:09 --> 00:07:22

It's good for you, it's gonna make you happy in this world, disbelieve this faith. This though hate this monotheism, whatever you want to call it, and it will make you successful in the hereafter.

00:07:23 --> 00:07:35

This is the theme in light of the previous chapters. Let's go over our agenda today we have a very, it's I think 52 verses not not long. Short, this is what we have

00:07:37 --> 00:08:27

just a little introduction brief as an introduction to the higher aim. And how can one be grateful for the blessing of guidance? what triggered that aim? Like I always say, you look at the chapter, the name can be a trigger, then, because specially if the name is mentioned in the sooner that the chapter, the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam choosing that particular name for the chapter. And we know that there are certain chapters, names are not mentioned in the sooner. But a lot of the chapters are Ibrahim is mentioned it's it's the name or something that is mentioned or a story is mentioned. And then. But above all, I tell you, one of the most important variable which can help

00:08:27 --> 00:08:33

you trigger the aim, knowing this era, and knowing when this chapter was revealed.

00:08:34 --> 00:08:44

Because you have to understand it in context of the time. Because we know that the Quran was revealed in 23 years and it came to address

00:08:45 --> 00:08:47

issues that are there not

00:08:48 --> 00:08:55

a theory. Rather, it was a solution for practice for something that is happening.

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

I don't know what happened there. But we'll go back here. Okay.

00:09:05 --> 00:09:34

In a lot of these things, you will not understand them. So just this is what we have eight items. You can tell the two of them are out so we're only looking at six the question and answer you guys never asked questions. So read on the brief faces so I'm like I'm overwhelming you but in Sharla Are you ready to go? Are you ready to go? So my time just started? The 45 minute just started. Okay. briefings. Then name of the chapter is Ibrahim.

00:09:36 --> 00:09:50

Ibrahim is a messenger who's mentioned in the Old Testament in the book of Genesis. His story by the way is there so panela and fascinating yet what if we think about Ibrahim is de

00:09:51 --> 00:09:54

until hogger conceived

00:09:57 --> 00:10:00

and then Sarah became jealous

00:10:01 --> 00:10:03

And she said to Ibrahim, take her away.

00:10:04 --> 00:10:15

So Ibrahim Ali salam to Kaga and a smile somewhere and they completely disappear for life if you read the

00:10:17 --> 00:10:32

until you come in and and you know, because it's married was the oldest, then you come into this line with a lie stealing Ibrahim Ali Salaam now I want you to take your only son

00:10:34 --> 00:10:35

to sacrifice him.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:39

Think about it who can be the only son

00:10:42 --> 00:10:43

is hack.

00:10:44 --> 00:10:53

I mean, just to show you that when when when when you try to do something, normally the crime is not perfect, you're always gonna leave what they should have taken that only away.

00:10:54 --> 00:10:59

Because the only only a can apply to who,

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

too is smart enough to Isaac because Isaac, Isaac is the second son. He's not the only son.

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

Of course, when we debate with Christians and mentioned that they almost Say what?

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

Well, but the marriage of Abraham was not to harger was not lawful.

00:11:19 --> 00:11:59

Then, you know, you come back and say, Oh, I'm sorry, didn't go to the Supreme Court to get a marriage certificate Is that it? You know, I mean, come on. This is the top of the line because the whole issue really, really puzzles you because of polygamy. You know that having a multiple sisters upstairs humbler? No. Yeah. You know, so we're not going to go over this inshallah that's that's why they are bothered by it. You know, that's why they are bother because this is something they don't condone. So they. So what do you wanna tell me that Ibrahim and haga relationship was a legal commandment as like, but shed, Ibrahim and that's the name mentioned Abram, or Abraham, in the

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

biblical scripture in the book of Genesis.

00:12:02 --> 00:12:11

Allah mentioned his name in verse number 35, which says, What if called Ibrahima bidjar.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:18

Nina, what do you know Bernie? Bernie and whoodle

00:12:20 --> 00:12:33

Ibrahim Ali Salam made this. Our Lord make the city Mecca, one of the piece one of peace and security and keep me and my sons away from worshipping idols.

00:12:34 --> 00:12:38

imaginary Ibrahim is asking Allah to protect him from the worship of

00:12:40 --> 00:12:54

idols, some Muslims, not a shikou show no, I don't do that. I'd never never count yourself out. That chapter does not contain the life story of Abraham.

00:12:55 --> 00:12:57

No. Rather,

00:12:58 --> 00:13:05

he was mentioned to show an example of someone who showed appreciation for being guided

00:13:06 --> 00:13:07

Ibrahim was

00:13:10 --> 00:13:17

you know showing was was an example of somebody who was grateful for Allah for guiding him to the truth.

00:13:18 --> 00:13:22

And look at these versus f1 so let's look at this.

00:13:23 --> 00:13:31

In a bow, he maka mutton corn eaten in honey

00:13:32 --> 00:13:35

wehrli Ibrahim was an oma.

00:13:37 --> 00:13:39

They say an hour you're not always right.

00:13:41 --> 00:13:47

They tell you all the qualities and the attributes of good people in a nation

00:13:48 --> 00:13:51

were gathered in his character.

00:13:52 --> 00:13:53


00:13:54 --> 00:13:55


00:13:57 --> 00:13:58

What is it?

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

Patience, submission. Imagine you take your only son, your only son that you've been waiting for for years to slaughter him because of a dream.

00:14:16 --> 00:14:23

Here's what I'm looking for. Look at the next verse. Shakira and know me, he was grateful.

00:14:24 --> 00:14:25

You know, being grateful.

00:14:27 --> 00:14:33

And this surah is is you know, this surah is about that is Allah has shown you the truth.

00:14:34 --> 00:14:41

Allah has shown you the path to him. Shouldn't you be grateful like Ibrahim that's what the surah is all about.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:53

For Ibrahim is mentioned as any, and he was mentioned as an example, to show you how somebody should appreciate the fact that Allah guided you to Islam

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


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

The chapter belongs to the group of the chapters which were revealed during the last stage of the Macan period. So we know that it's a mucky and towards the time

00:15:11 --> 00:15:28

of eyetality Why always call it that the weakest stage in Islam is the last three years in Mecca. After the death of public policy, that of Egypt, and the Muslims are going through it, they are they are really going through it.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

And the reason why

00:15:34 --> 00:15:40

is verse number 13. As if Allah subhana wa tada is breeding the Muslims,

00:15:41 --> 00:15:47

that is not going to end here. These guys are going to try to expel you out of Mecca.

00:15:50 --> 00:15:56

And this is the verse what Allah subhana wa Taala is talking yes about the previous nations.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:06

Look how it says work on the NACA folio, so the Himalayan region coming out of the

00:16:08 --> 00:16:10

female Latina

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

Look at verse number 13 number 13

00:16:15 --> 00:16:26

and those who disbelieved said to their messengers to their believers, surely we shall drive you out of our land or you shall return to our religion.

00:16:27 --> 00:16:45

So Allah subhanho wa Taala is revealing the Muslims who were in Mecca that is not gonna stop at Jalen chastisement and losing your jobs, they may need to do what to drive you out. So be prepared for that and that's what sort of Ebrahim is

00:16:47 --> 00:16:48

for you.

00:16:50 --> 00:17:00

Introduction to the higher aim and please focus here if you really get if you want to get the Eonni the picture here if you want to learn the surah

00:17:01 --> 00:17:08

Allah subhana wa Taala has bestowed upon us countless countless f was plussing ally

00:17:10 --> 00:17:11

plus deal with

00:17:13 --> 00:17:16

being able to see being able to hear

00:17:18 --> 00:17:26

intellect health, wealth, children you know we take this for granted but this is from Allah

00:17:28 --> 00:18:00

look at a loss of Hannah with Allah said in the in the end and even the other elements of the universe is you know, he subjected it to serve you the moon is here to serve you. The sun is here to serve you the The rain is here to serve you. The trees are here to serve you everything subjected everything to what's a hurricane Matthew center, what you wanna fill out of the journey. I mean, look, Allah subhanaw taala in this chapter saying what, what in do law he saw.

00:18:01 --> 00:18:10

And if you try to count Ally's blessing, you cannot. You can't. If you just sit and count them You can't.

00:18:13 --> 00:18:21

However, all these blessings will cease to exist when our shortly life comes to an end.

00:18:22 --> 00:18:43

Can you take site with you to the next slide? Can you take wealth with you to the next slide? Can you take children with you to the next slide? The only bounty The only blessing, which will bring you happiness and tranquility in this life. And the eternal plus in the Hereafter is being a Muslim.

00:18:46 --> 00:18:57

The only thing that that will, will will help you take what you have here for blessing but to another level, the level of gender now is dying as a Muslim

00:18:58 --> 00:19:00

is being guided to Islam.

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

And this is why Allah subhana wa Taala tells us in the Quran, what Yeah, you have Latina de la haka to 41 to 911 to Muslim. Oh, II believe, do you die but as Muslims?

00:19:21 --> 00:19:31

And imagine if you're sitting next to somebody who's dying, what should you say to them? What should you ask them to say? What somebody is dying and you're sitting next to them? What should you tell them?

00:19:33 --> 00:19:34

Latino monitor,

00:19:35 --> 00:19:49

make sure that they say La la la la because that's the Universal Declaration. That's, that's what will show and the fact that you say that the date of death, it's a sign that you somehow lived it. It was part of your life. For

00:19:50 --> 00:19:59

a lot of people unfortunately, they look at these other bounties, but they disregard the bounty of Islam the bounty of guidance

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

And who given you Islam and who giving you guidance?

00:20:04 --> 00:20:05

Allah to

00:20:06 --> 00:20:07

and here's the evidence.

00:20:09 --> 00:20:16

It is for this reason Allah subhana wa Taala attributes this blessing of Islam of being a Muslim

00:20:17 --> 00:20:26

to himself. Look at this verse Salatu Magadha le oma Akmal Tula Khun Dena Kuma

00:20:29 --> 00:20:47

Kuma Mati warabi Tula. Kumu Islam Medina. Today I have perfected the last panel that has done who speaking here. I have affected the religion for you completed my blessing upon you. My blessing upon you my man. abou now metal Islam

00:20:49 --> 00:20:50

look like a

00:20:54 --> 00:21:01

king Allah La. de la comunidad de man was a

00:21:02 --> 00:21:10

coup de Khun wakawaka la ku ku for our for suka one is

00:21:11 --> 00:21:12


00:21:14 --> 00:21:47

Allah is the one who meet a man love to you, India to you that you love being a Muslim. Allah lays that love for Islam inside you. And he plays that resentment of disbelief, wickedness and polytheism and * in your heart wakawaka Allah made you hate it. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who made you love Eman, faith, Islam and hate what?

00:21:48 --> 00:22:11

Look, when some ignorant people mistakenly thought that they had done the Prophet a favor by embracing Islam. Allah reminded them that it was indeed a law who had favored them by guiding them to Islam. In the first place. layer the famous verse and solid 100 verse number 17

00:22:12 --> 00:22:13

call it

00:22:16 --> 00:22:19

a group of between came to the prophet and said we're believers

00:22:21 --> 00:22:48

to mean you're not believers yet. We're lacking kulu Aslam now you're just Muslims. Allah is the one who is going to guide you to be believers again yet well, this bounty of faith is from who being guided to Islam is from who from Allah subhana wa, look at the people of Generico in their way to enter Paradise, what they say and sort of a lot of what they say.

00:22:50 --> 00:22:58

They will say what, what caught the people agenda and the way to Agenda they will walk all hamdulillah in the

00:23:01 --> 00:23:03

cocoon, Khun Lena de

00:23:06 --> 00:23:08

Lena de la jolla and

00:23:11 --> 00:23:16

they will say what hamdulillah who guided us to this and we we will not be what

00:23:17 --> 00:23:39

we never could we have found guidance with it not that Allah had guided us. Yeah, sometimes you come across an asylum actually a couple of times. He rebuked some companions. I'm sorry. the companions of the Prophet rebuke some breed assessors for wishing that

00:23:41 --> 00:23:48

one of them said I believe the for the family a man. Man I wish we lived at the time of the Prophet

00:23:50 --> 00:23:52

ganja. I wish he's saying what

00:23:53 --> 00:23:57

the earth has rebuked him and said, Come on. Please don't say that.

00:23:58 --> 00:24:02

There were people who lived at the time of the Prophet and they fought Islam.

00:24:05 --> 00:24:28

Through right, they were people who were killed. Fighting What? So how do you know that you're not gonna fall into it? Just be happy with what? You know. Be happy with that with that now, you know, be happy. Happy with that. No. Forget what the point again. Again, the point I'm trying to establish here with you. That you being a Muslim you being here tonight. is because of who?

00:24:30 --> 00:24:31

because of who.

00:24:32 --> 00:24:37

And I always use this example. You know when we hear the end? What should we say?

00:24:39 --> 00:24:45

We should repeat what the Martin says right? So Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. We say what?

00:24:46 --> 00:24:47

Chateau La ilaha illAllah

00:24:49 --> 00:24:50

Sharona Muhammad Rasul Allah.

00:24:52 --> 00:24:54

Come to pray. Hi Allah. So Allah, what do you say?

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

I can do it Am I

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

You Hello, I can do it.

00:25:05 --> 00:25:11

For me Now Peter Anderson. Oh, man, this is a very deep theology for some of you that are lucky. It's what we do.

00:25:12 --> 00:25:24

You just have to show the intention. You know, like the engine for the car. But you have to show it but unlikely eat your actions. Uh, luckily, it's what we do. You know that 10 moves, Allah created it.

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

Allah created me to make it but Allah is the one who made me do it.

00:25:30 --> 00:25:38

And believing in this year, who is a key is a key. You got the point here again, without all these details, what I'm trying to tell you what I'm trying to convey to you.

00:25:40 --> 00:25:44

What, that the bounty of guidance comes from who

00:25:45 --> 00:25:54

comes from who comes from Allah like the will like the children, like the knowledge like the job, okay? So don't take it for granted either.

00:25:55 --> 00:26:04

How great Ally's blessing that you're able to live your life yonny accordance with worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. For you.

00:26:11 --> 00:26:11


00:26:12 --> 00:26:18

how can one be grateful for the blessing of guidance?

00:26:20 --> 00:26:27

Like we said, if you have children, what should you do with those children to show gratefulness? First of all, you must believe that this from Allah.

00:26:29 --> 00:26:40

Right? Then you should raise them up as what? Muslims, that's the best thing that you can do to show your gratefulness for the children. If you have money, wealth, what should you do?

00:26:42 --> 00:26:51

First of all, you must believe that this money is coming from a lot you will right now because you're smart and you went to Harvard and your Mr. Guru?

00:26:52 --> 00:26:53

No, it's from Allah.

00:26:55 --> 00:27:05

What should you do with this money? First of all, take care of your family the best sadhaka a person by the way can spend in the course of Allah the Prophet says is is what you feed your family.

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

The best spending is what you spend on your family, go to Kmart and going to silver Kingsolver and, and all these tools just just go that with that intention when you look at that receipt and you become frustrated. Just think about that, that the feeding your family you know, this is for the sake of Allah

00:27:29 --> 00:28:03

imagine it so and also you pay there's a cap on the money, right? You paid as a car right? And also if you have some leftover you can spend it in an extra donation, so that you have fulfilled now now your your health, what should you do with your health? What don't go and drink and and destroy that health was smoking weed and, and drugs and all that stuff. Use that health and what and studying and helping them once it comes to faith to

00:28:05 --> 00:28:08

see two things. You live in Islam.

00:28:09 --> 00:28:10

You becoming a Muslim?

00:28:12 --> 00:28:24

Don't be a lip service Muslim? No. You live in Islam. If you really think that Islam is a bounty from a law, and you will not be grateful for it, then you must live Islam.

00:28:26 --> 00:28:41

Allah glorified and exalted always commanded us to follow the footsteps of Abraham and his family. They were the best in showing gratitude to Allah for the bounty and the blessing of being guided to Islam. What did they do? themselves the ad here?

00:28:42 --> 00:28:56

Imagine this, the Brian takes Hagar and Ishmael is male to the desert. All what she wanted to know. Is that a command or Command then go He will take care of us, right?

00:28:57 --> 00:29:04

It's my my son, I had a dream which is a command to slaughter you do what your command

00:29:05 --> 00:29:13

family out of this world, practicing Islam patiently and Ibrahim standing in the face of what a fire

00:29:14 --> 00:29:39

you know, imagine you being stripped naked and throw it into the hellfire. But the second thing which is extremely important, that you must call others to this religion. You must give Dawa. invite others to Islam with wisdom and patience. So this is how you show gratitude and gratefulness to Allah subhanho wa Taala for Islam.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:45

what triggered that higher aim?

00:29:46 --> 00:29:53

The virtue, the benefit, the blessing the bounty of being a believer of faith

00:29:54 --> 00:30:00

and the curse, the penalty, the punishment that

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

Satish I will I call it chastisement of belief of disbelief.

00:30:05 --> 00:30:06

For this believing

00:30:08 --> 00:30:21

Hanalei for verses 2425 26 those three verses, two parables. Allah subhana wa Taala set in the Surah

00:30:23 --> 00:30:24


00:30:25 --> 00:30:26

law Houma

00:30:28 --> 00:30:29

Kelly mettam Bobbi Burton Keisha john Martin polybutene are slow

00:30:42 --> 00:30:43

00:30:54 --> 00:30:58

00:31:08 --> 00:31:17

my fellow Kelly Martin hobby 13 cache donatien hobby 13 eg to move in

00:31:24 --> 00:31:28

SEO not how Allah sets forth a parable,

00:31:30 --> 00:31:48

a goodly word, as a goodly tree, whose root, the root of the world, which is the tree, metaphorically, is firmly fixed, and its branches reach the sky, very high, very fruitful.

00:31:50 --> 00:31:55

It gives food always, always when you need any food you grab,

00:31:57 --> 00:32:06

by the leave of Allah. And this is only a parable for people who are who can reflect. Look at the opposite of this one verse.

00:32:07 --> 00:32:39

The good word to versus the evil words is one verse, and the purple have an evil word is also like an evil tree. But look at this now, it has no word. It's in the service. It's not rooted firm in earth is not rooted in the surface of the earth, having no stability whatsoever. So those are the two parables Hang in there.

00:32:41 --> 00:32:53

The key to understanding these two parables lays in understanding what is meant by the good word and the evil wicked word. What is meant by them?

00:32:54 --> 00:33:12

abroad this Qatada Mujahid Abuja by us all the predecessors, and I'm live now best in particular, he said the good word is lair. Illa Illa ma Mohammed Osama, Kalamata, right?

00:33:14 --> 00:33:19

The Universal Declaration of faith. Howdy al Kelly mapa.

00:33:20 --> 00:34:08

Oh, the word Kelly may echo even though word but the word kalama in English means anything that is meaningful that can be actually a whole book, you know, but this is what is meant. Most of the scholars are of the opinion that the good word that refers to the Universal Declaration of monotheism of faith of the eight which is expressed in these words La ilaha illAllah. Muhammad Rasul Allah which means there is no one worthy of worship and submission except Allah. And I will worship and submit to Allah so I will worship Allah and submit to Him in accordance with the final messenger, Mohamed Salah levada, he, where he was the boss about the evil wicked word.

00:34:10 --> 00:34:13

Anyone can guess here is to notify that

00:34:15 --> 00:34:17

is to nullify them. How can you notify that?

00:34:19 --> 00:34:22

By negation, like atheists, they say what there is no,

00:34:24 --> 00:34:25

there is no God

00:34:26 --> 00:34:28

or by association,

00:34:30 --> 00:34:32

that you believe there is a God, but he has what

00:34:34 --> 00:34:45

associates like the Christian Father, Son, Holy, Ghost, or the Hindus, the God of the night, the God of the day, the God of the of the good, the good of the bad.

00:34:46 --> 00:34:46


00:34:48 --> 00:34:52

So this is the evil wicked words. So

00:34:54 --> 00:34:59

imagine echo the good word is like the good tree. Imagine having a good

00:35:00 --> 00:35:01

tree in your life

00:35:03 --> 00:35:17

which is the Universal Declaration of faith without hate is like a tree firm rooted because a tree fears to the true meaning of monotheism which is there is no one who will be of my worship except Allah subhana wa

00:35:18 --> 00:35:33

akiak we're here and a lot of Muslims unfortunately they don't understand the schema, the schema and you heard me saying this over and over again, but I'm gonna do it very briefly today because I don't want to go there. You have to negate before you affirm.

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

You cannot agree that Jesus is God for you to believe in a law you have to say Jesus is not what

00:35:44 --> 00:35:45

and you have to say

00:35:46 --> 00:36:38

well you have to be nice you know you have to say it in a nice way. But I don't know how nice Can you be when you say that to a Christian? But you can you understand that's the negation let me look at this now. So first there is an occasion which is then followed by an affirmation first you negate that there is any deity who deserves my sleeve hood, my submission my obedience, anything anything no human no I have no planet everything none of these are worthy of my worship. None of these are worthy of my life. The only one who is who who who come on man Oh, why Why? Why can you tell me why why why?

00:36:39 --> 00:36:42

Why? Because he made me created me right.

00:36:44 --> 00:36:53

He made me right. He given me what I have these other deities which we will worship themselves they need help

00:36:55 --> 00:36:59

I love this airport that was my imagination. That's my imagination.

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

Imagine this good world just to show you how this can be the good life the source of good life. Imagine this good work to be a good tree which there is a typo there I'm sorry is firm rooted? And so prosperous. Imagine this tree is so up it reaches by the way notice that the branches are lasting without branches normally the branches of a tree normally work

00:37:25 --> 00:37:29

they eventually go sideways Alaskan will fall

00:37:32 --> 00:37:40

for summer, so all the branches are what Imagine you have branches that goes up not sideways up and each way

00:37:41 --> 00:37:54

imagine this. So this tree will produce all types of foods for you with a vertically Of course. Public say that Allah hit you with a calamity. What fruit Do you need to pick up from the tree?

00:37:56 --> 00:37:59

What fruit Do you need when you go through hardship?

00:38:01 --> 00:38:02

Patience okay

00:38:05 --> 00:38:06

00:38:57 --> 00:38:58

you get in trouble.

00:39:00 --> 00:39:02

What do you need to pick up from the three

00:39:25 --> 00:39:30

Show off. I want to impress the people. sincerity. You're getting down.

Would you become worried about your provision? I'm afraid the food who's gonna provide I'm gonna lose my job.

00:39:40 --> 00:39:41

Well, I'm a

00:39:42 --> 00:39:43

law. He's

00:39:44 --> 00:39:45

the fruit of

00:39:47 --> 00:39:55

reliance that you rely on Alaska. This is the genuine earth. And this is what this tree which is it gives you

00:39:57 --> 00:39:59

and that's why we live in a very special

00:40:00 --> 00:40:10

But we must understand for you to be for you to find that tree in your life you must understand the depth of this world

00:40:12 --> 00:40:16

which you can turn into a tree seriously.

00:40:18 --> 00:40:20

Your dedication and focus has to be a loss of

00:40:21 --> 00:40:37

this good word is not just lip service like a lot of Muslims unfortunately do know behind it, it's an idea concept. Imagine nothing else matters in your life except to imagine you live like that. You live like a king.

00:40:39 --> 00:40:44

You live like a king seriously, you care about you know, I only want to please who

00:40:46 --> 00:40:58

you know a lot of times as well we get in trouble when you try to what make this happy and make this happy and make this happy and loss of energy and they can be happy with you today and tomorrow, what their hearts what.

00:41:00 --> 00:41:09

So the warrior body. The good word is found it is the foundation of Islam. It is the very basis upon which our religion established to be a Muslim

00:41:10 --> 00:41:32

is that you must realize this idea that the purpose of life is Allah subhana wa COVID Islam is the process by which this idea is instilled deep into the heart. All that we do from Salah fasting, everything belongs to who and Allah mentioned this in the Quran. Look at this.

00:41:33 --> 00:41:34

Here it is in the Quran.

00:41:35 --> 00:41:40

Cool in T one Uzuki Mama

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

Mama T one

00:41:45 --> 00:41:46


00:41:50 --> 00:41:52


00:41:55 --> 00:41:56


00:41:58 --> 00:42:02

me, look at the verse before at 161 that

00:42:04 --> 00:42:06

this is the guidance This is a straight path

00:42:07 --> 00:42:08


00:42:10 --> 00:42:12


00:42:13 --> 00:42:16

most opting in Dean and

00:42:18 --> 00:42:19

Dean and

00:42:21 --> 00:42:24

letter a bow he Maharani

00:42:27 --> 00:42:43

more shaky say ohama law My Lord has guided me to the straight path, the right religion, the religion of a bra he which is what everything virtually my Salah, my sacrifice.

00:42:44 --> 00:42:46

Look at this year for my life on my death.

00:42:48 --> 00:42:55

Everything in my life in this world and my death belongs to who? To Allah La sharika

00:42:56 --> 00:42:57

that is the Kadima.

00:42:58 --> 00:43:11

The second half of that word the fo and the way in which we attained Faith is the way shown by the messenger. Very important. Because people say that God has many ways No, there is no such a thing.

00:43:12 --> 00:43:16

The only way to the messenger, the only way to Allah is the waifu

00:43:17 --> 00:43:19

the waifu messenger

00:43:21 --> 00:43:40

the messenger the messenger of the time now is Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, that's why you always say what? La ilaha illa Allah then what Mohammedan Rasulullah The only way for me to implement La la la la to see La ilaha illa Allah is by following the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:43:42 --> 00:44:06

To conclude, did you get this idea? By the way, did you get this idea the good word and the parable? Did you get it? Did you get it? You know, it's like a tree in your life. To conclude, let us look at the objectives which Allah used to describe both words the good and the wicked. Even words, the objective which allow us for the hate play

00:44:07 --> 00:44:21

by Eva, lm taraka Allah who method and Kelly Martin Paiva five means it means good, but that's not enough. By the way, you know, the English language record does not capture

00:44:23 --> 00:44:27

that is why what we're going to do is we're going to talk to you about the benefits of this kalama

00:44:28 --> 00:44:46

in light of the surah because the surah talked about this and also the objective is used for evil javita wicked into Word, which is what whether atheism or polytheism cos or ship, right, these are

00:44:48 --> 00:44:55

the sutra also will explain the curse of this inshallah. Ready. This is probably the

00:44:56 --> 00:44:57

so we're now talking about

00:44:58 --> 00:44:59

the virtues of belief.

00:45:00 --> 00:45:06

That's the aim, right? So let's understand when I break the surah down for you here. Now in light of this,

00:45:07 --> 00:45:27

look at this, being guided, the first blessing of this good world is to be guided to the straight path by believing in the law, following the messenger and supporting the messenger. Look at this, who was sent to you speak in your own language

00:45:28 --> 00:45:33

and benefiting from the stories of the previous nations. Some verses.

00:45:34 --> 00:45:37

This is what we decided to an idea for fees for soccer.

00:45:40 --> 00:45:40


00:45:43 --> 00:45:56

Kelly took region seminar in an odd evening on a beam, Isla sirop in LA zz will Hamid imaginisce, oldest speranza about this,

00:45:57 --> 00:46:03

oh, that you live for the hereafter. And you follow the messenger who was sent you speak in your own language.

00:46:06 --> 00:46:16

And Allah given us the example of more so that he was sent with the ayah to his people. And he asked them to be grateful by practicing their religion and also by calling others to it.

00:46:17 --> 00:46:18

The second thing is

00:46:19 --> 00:46:42

being grateful, like Ibrahim Ali is just to remind you of how to be grateful to Allah, for the various bounties and above all the most important bounty and blessing which is a slab. A person shows his gratefulness for the guidance by practicing it and by calling others to it to it moosari salat wa salam said to his people.

00:46:44 --> 00:47:09

Well, then Allah Buccola in Chicago, Toma as he then come, while Inca fall in the meaner shady fury stance, by accepting faith, worshipping none but Allah, I will give you more of my blessing. But if you are tantalus disbelievers. Thirdly, my punishment is indeed severe.

00:47:11 --> 00:47:15

And you don't have nobody if you disbelief write a column

00:47:16 --> 00:47:21

in four to one fill out the journey.

00:47:22 --> 00:47:22


00:47:25 --> 00:47:37

me, Jaime, and musasa a few disbelieve you and all Earth together. Verily Allah is rich, meaning he doesn't need owner of all praise.

00:47:39 --> 00:47:45

And more verses if works Pamela and just to show you that being grateful for Islam

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

the ideal example is a Brahim loco ebrahimian

00:47:51 --> 00:47:56

First of all, he doesn't want to worship idols, him and his children. Right.

00:47:58 --> 00:48:00

And he's being grateful for the offspring.

00:48:03 --> 00:48:14

Alhamdulillah Illa de la Vallee Allah Al keeper he is he lower his half look at 39 in BC, lesser Neo

Ravi Gianni Moti masala to amin do to re at robina Taco Bell. This is being grateful for the children.

Bill fairly well you

00:48:31 --> 00:48:33

mean I owe my APU.

00:48:35 --> 00:48:58

So number one, being guided to the truth, taken out of darkness to light following the messengers, learning from the experience of the previous nations. Number two is being grateful for this by being in the sight of the truth and being patient, practicing Islam and calling others to it in sha Allah.

00:49:00 --> 00:49:10

Look the example Allah given us the other example the curse here, the people of Mecca Subhan Allah, Allah giving them the Kaaba and giving them a messenger

00:49:11 --> 00:49:14

instead of supporting him. They fight him

00:49:16 --> 00:49:22

a lesson What? Lm Toro Illa de una de la

00:49:24 --> 00:49:28

00:49:31 --> 00:49:44

Have you not seen those who have changed the blessings of Allah into disbelief by denying the prophets of Allah and Islam and cause the appeal to the will in the house of destruction, which is Hill.

00:49:47 --> 00:49:59

Ah, this is a key word being steadfast. You see, it's easy to recognize guidance. It's easy to practice Islam for a day or two

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

That being consistent look at this here for you would be to love the

They are not going to be granted steadfastness. steadfastness in the face of the disbelievers the people who try

me, no, I mentioned the disbelievers. Oh, Muslims are bad. Islam is terrible. Leave that religion take off, you're

00:51:49 --> 00:51:55

gonna look at this. And why shouldn't we put our trust in Allah who guided us to this?

00:51:56 --> 00:52:16

We shall certainly period with patience, all the harm you may cause us and in a law alone. Those who believe place their trust machine this machine is this attitude. Look at this. Look at this. Look at number 13. I think we've gone over it before.

00:55:03 --> 00:55:20

And so, Pamela, and this is how can a Muslim be steadfast here, you see steadfastness a sub is is is something that you have to be charged with. And the rituals which we we do, were meant actually to, to

00:55:22 --> 00:55:24

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

the people who disbelieve This is in the hereafter.

00:56:59 --> 00:57:07

So think that Allah will fail to keep his promise to his messengers. So victory in this world, Allah will take care of you. And above all, that's what matters.

00:59:37 --> 00:59:43

They benefited from the scriptural sign, which is the revelation, the last verse in the sorry, the last verse in

00:59:44 --> 00:59:45

the last verse in the soul.

00:59:51 --> 00:59:59

The surah concluded with presenting two examples for both believe and disbelief. Ibrahim, example of a guided grateful steadfast one, Ibrahim alayhis salam, and then the second example those who transgressed

01:01:03 --> 01:01:06
