only gonna come over to go to the smaller one hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah but it was a vegetarian or vegan the name of Allah whole Praise and Glory be to Allah and Maine's finest peace and blessings be upon us messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his family in his companions and all those who trade his path, Allah illuminate our minds and yours with his book and purify our hearts with it and help us be ease towards our path in this world, a path that is pleasing to Him and to our homes in Jannah. Because of the role he extended in that Quran, Lama me

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

so I am asked to discuss the first six or seven verses of total Juma in tonight's webinar, which will be a bit of a challenge. So the Juma is 11 verses and it is a Minnesota by agreement came down Medina meaning after the age of the migration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:00:56--> 00:01:13

And the nature of sorrows in general, I've said this before at these webinars and should always be in the purview front and center for any student of the Quran is that the verses the beginning and the end are all related. And finding those relationships, how they're related,

00:01:14--> 00:01:22

is the task of the student and the reflector, the one pondering over the Quran because we said Surah, the word Surah to begin with,

00:01:24--> 00:01:39

comes from the word soul or same root as the word sore, which means a fence and so Allah fence together are bundled together a set of verses and separated them from another sutra and another set of verses. So why are these separate from those? There is a reason obviously.

00:01:40--> 00:01:47

And so sort of the Joomla speaks obviously about Joomla, which is the greatest day of the week.

00:01:49--> 00:01:53

Even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about Joomla about Friday

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

clay Roman philosophy he ships that the grievous The sun has ever risen upon his Joomla is Friday

00:02:04--> 00:02:32

fee Holika Adam in it Adam was created on a Salaam and in it he was admitted to paradise and he was removed from Paradise some narrations this entity was forgiven on in the Friday in the day of Friday. Well as a Homosassa we'd love Yomi Juma and the our will not be established except on the day of Jumanji they have Joomla is the day of reminder is they will remember our or our point of origination our origin and our final destination our our ultimate destiny

00:02:33--> 00:02:53

and it is the day when we also remember what we're supposed to be doing between our origin or destination which is a bad that's why Joomla is a day filled with very bad because a bad day is the practical way to remember will ask him is solitary victory established prayer to remember from our remembrance all of these remedies are for our for it.

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

And even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about Juma I don't want to end the whole lecture into the virtues of Juma but it helps you understand why the whole sold on it. He said that

00:03:05--> 00:03:14

we are the last in terms of the chronology of human history we are the last nation to come. He's the final prophet with the final OMA that will be the first on the day of judgment.

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


00:03:20--> 00:03:27

any explains it in the sense that we receive the book after them they received it before us.

00:03:28--> 00:03:34

But we will be the first on the day of judgment and he gives an another example not just about the book. He says that.

00:03:35--> 00:03:42

And this day this day of Jamar has not hadith is the day that I lost Dojo guided this OMA to,

00:03:44--> 00:03:51

to remembering the reality remembering the mission remembering the responsibility. He said, Allah guided us to it. And

00:03:52--> 00:04:27

Miss led them from it. I know what I like or turn them away from it. In perfect justice. Of course, we will talk about that as well. These are today's for us and tomorrow's for the Jews Saturday, and the day after tomorrow is for the Christians. And so this is the day this is the big day that people misplace. And so valuing Joomla properly is really what the surah is about, you're going to see at the beginning of the surah how people did not value revelation and disregarded it among the previous nations. And how we will find at the end of this surah whoever is discussing discussing the end of the surah a reprimand and disciplining of the model generation, the generation of the Sahaba

00:04:28--> 00:04:40

teaching them to take hold with the Jumada reminder I GEOMAR extremely seriously abandoning tree, abandoning everything else. Okay, so that was the five minute intro she only gives me 15 minutes left to discuss some of the terms of the surah.

00:04:41--> 00:04:46

The Surah begins by saying you said the Holy let him XML it or method

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

that you said Behold, in praising Allah, exalting Allah, glorifying Allah is everything in the heavens and the earth, meaning everything in the universe is busy preoccupied all the time.

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

With glorifying Allah subhana wa Taala they don't ever forget to glorify Him,

00:05:06--> 00:05:10

except for the human being, obviously, by virtue of His will, by virtue of

00:05:12--> 00:05:20

giving him a choice by Allah giving him some sort of agency. He's the exception sometimes he forgets, does not remind himself to glorify Allah.

00:05:22--> 00:05:35

And so glorifying Allah is everything and the heavens and the earth. al Maliki could do sila zeal, Hakeem, okay. These are four names of Allah azza wa jal that appear twice in the Quran like this,

00:05:36--> 00:05:52

in this sequence, and all together here, it's with a Joomla and also total hash that can be discussed at a later time. But what did these names mean? Al Malik means the King, the, the one that has Mulk

00:05:53--> 00:06:35

mole can mean sovereignty. Sovereignty is a big word Mulk means control, the one who is in control, he never lost control. Subhana wa taala. He is not just al Malik, which is one of the names of Malik, but he is also the Melek. Because you can own something, but you don't really have control over it. Or you can be given control of something but not forever, because you don't own it. But Allah is Al Malik and Malik and that's fine. So the fact that I use a Malik and Malik interchangeably between two different Khorat these are both traceable to the prophets of Allah. Hi, my name is LM in any case, so al Malik is the one that's in control the sovereign, the authority. So

00:06:35--> 00:07:25

he didn't create his creation, divorce it he remains in control of his creation and produce, I'll quote those means the sanctified the pure, the one that has no flaws produced literally means the flawless, the flawless. The pure Aziz is the mighty, mighty means the one that bears great might, and also the one that confers might gives rise to whomever he wishes. subhanho wa Taala and Al Hakim al Hakim, the most wise means the one who places everything in its proper place, and also confers wisdom, places wisdom, wherever he wishes, subhanAllah God inspires meaning with wisdom, whatever he wishes, so he is hecky meaning in everything he does, and everything he gives. That's where he

00:07:25--> 00:08:01

commands to place things in their proper place. So in terms of the universe, he's wise and all of his determined nations, in terms of the Sharia that he revealed everything is perfectly placed in his perfect system of laws that he asked us to live by. And he isn't Hakeem the also the one who only places guidance, so that system, those deserving of it. So those four names are important to understand because they are very related to the following verses or the rest of the surah. They're the introduction of the surah. Because Allah azza wa jal is speaking here. We'll be speaking in light of him being an Malik and producing Aziz and Hakeem in particular, and then we'll just give

00:08:01--> 00:08:11

one example just in the interest of time, which is this next idea? When Allah azza wa jal says who Allah the bath Philomena rasool Allah, He is the one who sent among the,

00:08:12--> 00:08:31

in the unlettered or the illiterate a messenger, meaning Allah is ill medical produce a disease and Hakeem the all powerful the fully in control, the one who is not blemished by imperfection, or does things that are unwise No, he stays caring for his creation did not neglect them. He sent them a messenger

00:08:33--> 00:08:51

in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the unlettered people Subhana wa Tala. He is the one who sends now let's get to that verse in particular, what we can learn from it. He is the one who sent among the army in the army and in the illiterates, so the Prophet SAW Selim is known in the Quran and elsewhere as in the below me, the prophet the unlettered prophet.

00:08:54--> 00:09:05

And some say the word Omi comes from the word ohm ohm is what Mother and so me is the people that are uneducated in the sentence, right in terms of literacy. So meaning they are at

00:09:08--> 00:09:21

this blank as a blank sheet as their mother gave birth to them, that's according to some linguists are etymologists. So he is the one who sent among the mean because the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he

00:09:23--> 00:09:34

was surrounded by people and he was also a person that could not read or write, even if some of them could have read or wrote, In general they weren't only people by and large, they'll be let you already literate.

00:09:35--> 00:09:39

And so Allah sent among them, a messenger from them.

00:09:43--> 00:10:00

Or sent from the Messenger from among them, yet literally him He who has four tasks, he recites to them his verses the verses of Allah subhanho wa taala. Why use a key him and he purifies them the word Ischia means purification, it means development as well. So he doesn't just pure

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

by them from the evil qualities, he develops in them the good qualities, use a key him and why you're allowed Muhammad Kitab our Hekmati teaches them the Kitab, and the ACMA, the book and the Wisdom.

00:10:12--> 00:10:19

This of course, is a response to the Dr. Ibrahim alayhis salam who asked Allah to send these people a messenger. Allah Zilla, Jen

00:10:21--> 00:10:35

sent the world right he sent among the Oh mean a messenger but that messenger of course was for the whole world. Raw material. Alameen Oksana que NASCI CAFOs NT to all of humanity

00:10:37--> 00:11:19

and so Allah responded to the either Brahim Ali Salam by sending these unlettered people a prophet who's unlettered like them and look, go back to Allah's names. Now I'll medical produce Allah disease that Allah taught the world literacy, taught the world to think to open their eyes to open their hearts open their minds at the hands of a man I mean, Salatu was Salam who was himself on letter that is part of the miraculous nature of this message that filled the world with light he is the one who sent among the Amin the unlettered messenger, yes, literally him at he who said recites them His Verses, and purifies them and teaches them the Book and their wisdom. And of course, if

00:11:19--> 00:11:51

you're not purified, and learning the book and the Wisdom, by the way, the book here I'm sorry, the book here is not just the Quran, for sure that's the highest form of literacy, sacred knowledge is superior to secular or profane knowledge. But Kitab here could also mean the the then the concept of written knowledge, because the the Ardene even came to teach us that we must write certain things down and taught us to learn in general, you know, and so literacy in general, is what he's teaching the world.

00:11:52--> 00:12:31

And the highest literacy is sacred literacy, learning sacred knowledge, that's for sure a part of it, but we don't have to restrict the word hikma, here to that key tab here to that. Likewise, though teach them hikma, pick them up, means them for you to be inspired by Allah to do things right on a detailed level, like you have that in the Quran and Sunnah. But how do you actually apply that? Bring that down to the personal level, the individual level, customize that for your life. That is from Allah subhanho wa Taala for sure, that then gives you the fundamentals of Hekima that's why I'm the Heckman here of course many of the scholars say it's because the Sunnah is the application of

00:12:31--> 00:12:38

the Quran, so you don't miss apply the Quran, but even the Sunnah itself how do you not miss apply the Sunnah? How do you

00:12:40--> 00:13:11

how do you not selectively read the Sunnah? How do you not use it out of context. That is why it began by saying reciting the verses where use a key him and purify them first. If you don't purify your heart first, then your mind will be held against you what you understand from any book, even the Quran, from the Sunnah, even the Sunnah, it won't matter, because you will read it how you want to read it, instead of serving, understanding correctly understand what you want to understand what are the villa. In any case, Allah sent this messenger

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

among them to recite to them the Book and the wisdom and purify them and teach them the Book and the wisdom wincan Omar Abdullah Vidal Alamuddin and although they although they were before it invalid, error, misguidance loss mobian Clear loss that is clear, clear loss, or clear error.

00:13:35--> 00:14:14

And so it was also from the hikma of Allah that He sent among the Amina messenger, because sending it to the most primitive people, in terms of literacy shows the transition, the most obvious transition to the greatest nation of humanity, shepherds of sheep, to the leaders of civilizations, like and they were also the most fit by the way, it's not just about them being the biggest transition. The the other civilizations would have had less of a transition intellectually because they had philosophies they had sciences and otherwise, someone could have said he's building off of Aristotle he's building off of one of the the the leaders of Chinese thought or Indian thought these

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

were major empires, the Arabs were not so it was intellectual transition. It was miraculous, but also of his wisdom as they sent them among the Arabs

00:14:24--> 00:14:32

because the Arabs were superior in certain regards. Same way they were inferior in this regard the intellectual they were also superior. They were not.

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

What's the word?

00:14:37--> 00:14:49

diminished, devolved by the, the flaws of luxury, right? They were people that were very truthful. They were people that were very durable

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

riches and luxuries of the major civilizations had not obtained hid them so they were the ideal It was perfect. Hey, comma, they choose the autumn to be the original risk.

00:15:00--> 00:15:25

It means of this message number one because they could handle it. those of them that were that would be purified weatherization, this versus due to their nature, their purity and these and their abilities, something that is very hard to be taught. And at the other end because they had no other cultural baggage to hold them back or to, or to cause the world to doubt that they were coming with something truly unique something out of nowhere in the middle of the desert.

00:15:27--> 00:15:53

I mean, kind of uncovered a fetal alley movie, and they were before that and clearer will fit in I mean, homeland medhelp will be him a whole ISIS will Hakeem and Al and to others, he was also sent to others who have not yet joined them, who have not yet joined these people that were in clear error, but they receive the message were purified by it and learn the book and the Wisdom. This is Hannah.

00:16:01--> 00:16:10

afford were not the original recipients not Quraysh, not Quraysh and elves and huzzah Raj, not just the Arabian Peninsula. Who would

00:16:13--> 00:16:27

be we given this message and become of the greats of this ummah, of the bearers of these torches of guidance to the world that was in utter darkness without it? Allah said this would in fact,

00:16:28--> 00:16:43

happen people would catch up with them, no matter how far they're coming from, no matter how late they were, you know, it's pile up. Some people mentioned that this is referring to the people of Persia, for example, and this is very possible because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:16:45--> 00:16:46


00:16:47--> 00:16:49

they put his hand on salamander Pharisees Amanda Persian

00:16:51--> 00:17:34

that allow Canada email and a thorough Al and Allah hurry gentlemen, how Allah if faith were at the stars, people from this man's regions would still go get it. And this is amazing, because if you think of some of the greatest leaders of the Muslim ummah early on, think of the six books of Hadith even the six books of Hadith were collected for us the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim was preserved for us by men. These men, if you look at their names, their names come from lands that are not Arab lands, and they're not on Allah like, we'll call it from Bukhara, Uzbekistan. Moses Muslim was Arab. But if you dig back further, nice abalone from the Civil War, Horus and CG Stanny the NSA. It's very

00:17:34--> 00:17:53

interesting, right? These are they were five out of six if not six, out of six of the major books were virgins are from the lands of Persia. In any case, there Lika Fadlallah right there to the next verse that is the bounty of Allah He granted to whomever he wishes what Allah has been funneling Allium and Allah is possessor of Great Bounty, that is the bounty of Allah

00:17:57--> 00:18:18

that He grants whomever he wishes that he sent his guidance, meaning to a man that is the bounty of Allah prophethood nobody can ever attain that. It is not earnable It was a gift. And also follow Allah that people embrace this message hear about it and embrace this message that Allah delivers it to those who who knows there is good in their hearts.

00:18:19--> 00:18:38

Allah Who unfolded Alim and Allah is the Possessor of great bounties I know with Allah. Then he mentions those who received an indirect or direct warning those who received the books before and he said methadone Lavina hum Muto, rato Mala Mia hamidou How can I help Hey, Mary, I mean, what as far as the example of those who are entrusted with the Torah, the book that was given to

00:18:39--> 00:19:11

Saudi Salam then did not take it on. They were given it so they didn't embrace it. They were made to take it they were commissioned with it. And but they did not live up to that lamb they did not carry it, meaning they did not carry it the way it should be carried and not live up to it is like the example those people that did that those guilty of that crime for a squandering Allah's book is like the example of a donkey who carries volumes, who carries a library, you know, subhanAllah they say, you know, donkeys are representative of the unintelligent, right?

00:19:13--> 00:19:25

And also, the donkey is representative of one of the most submissive animals, right? A donkey is not like a horse or a camel, a child can grab the rope and direct a donkey and final resistance.

00:19:27--> 00:19:28

And so

00:19:29--> 00:19:38

they rejected the size of Allah azza wa jal. And so they were left to their own vices, they were not guided, and so anyone

00:19:39--> 00:19:43

was able to manipulate them anyone was able to sway them into the darkest.

00:19:45--> 00:20:00

The darkest paths, the example of those that were given us our art and they do not carry it. They did not give due respect to the messenger and the revelation. He came with what he recited to them. It's like the example of a donkey carrying a library. The monkey is weighed down by

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

I guess right? That's one of the reasons why perhaps, and also, because they were not increased in intelligence by this. That's another reason. And the third is that this donkey can be so easily manipulated by virtue of them.

00:20:15--> 00:20:21

Stripping themselves of eligibility of Allah's guidance, if Allah does not guide you

00:20:24--> 00:20:25

you cannot fend for yourself.

00:20:27--> 00:20:46

And so then Allah azza wa jal challenges them here and he says and this is also of the honoring he gave to the Prophet SAW Selim that he's authorizing him here to speak right? No one is gonna say don't talk to us we are the chosen people of God we carry God's book we this was the the cat they took the book on for bragging rights not for

00:20:48--> 00:21:15

genuine devotion. So he's telling him say that word see here tells you a lot tells you the province also let me speak from a place of authority. God is saying I am telling you tell them I said Say you're speaking on my behalf. Say oh you Lavina had to say oh you have had to do is like your whole juice or hairdo comes from the word like hey Dahlia guidance because they say we had to we came back we repented.

00:21:16--> 00:21:29

That is what they said that Lavina had other places in the clients use as well like this, but in effect, it's speaking about the, the tribes of the Jews. Say oh you Jews who are Jews, or have ascribed themselves to Judaism.

00:21:30--> 00:21:38

If you claim then you are the allies of Allah excluding the people of the other, excluding the other people then wish for death if you should be truthful.

00:21:39--> 00:22:00

While I am unknown or whoever them BE MY GOD DAMMIT add him but they will never wish for it because they want their hands but fourth and as Allah has done, Allah's knowing of the wrongdoers, so Allah saying I know they are wrongdoers, and they know deep down inside they're not wrongdoers, which is why they are not my chosen people because you know, the other

00:22:02--> 00:22:44

as as what that Ibrahim Ali Samson waterbuck, my offspring Allah, he said lionello adelante me and my covenant does not cover the volume mean. So Allah here says Allahu Allah even with volume and Allah knows full well who are the volume mean? Are the transgressors? Who are the aggressors? I'll stop here. This is all speaking about once again, the Nirvana of being able to connect with Allah and remember him like the whole universe remembers him, and the catastrophe of the previous nations fumbling that's an AMA and fumbling that duty among humanity, and then it will move on to cautioning the believers from

00:22:47--> 00:22:59

fumbling that in light in terms of salatu Juma in particular, because the day of Juma is the day of remembrance, I hope I kind of pulled it all together for everyone subchronic loving family stuff going to Lake

00:23:01--> 00:23:12

Allah Tada. Maybe we can open the floor for questions now. So inshallah the first question, we talked a little bit about the Jewish people and their relationship with their book,

00:23:13--> 00:23:32

what lessons can we learn from the mistakes of previous nations in terms of how they approach their book? And how can we have a better relationship with the Quran and our book through reflecting on some of those lessons? Okay. So,

00:23:33--> 00:23:33


00:23:34--> 00:23:47

Allah, that's a difficult question to answer succinctly. But we see in the Quran some specific examples of what went wrong between them and their book.

00:23:49--> 00:23:50

Number one, they

00:23:52--> 00:24:00

neglected acting upon it, right? They neglected acting upon it. And so when they neglected acting upon it,

00:24:01--> 00:24:08

they began misunderstanding it. So Allah azza wa jal says, and sort of soft which is actually the very next surah in the Quran.

00:24:09--> 00:24:53

For Amazon was a holdover one, they deviated Allah cause their hearts to deviate. And this is something that we need to all understand that you will act on what you believe is right, in this context, the Quran, or else you will believe that what you're doing is right. That's just human nature. You will act on what you're doing is right, or you will start believing that what you're already doing is what's right. In other words, you will pull yourself together to change for the better, or else you will silence your guilt after a while silence your conscience after a while and tell yourself I don't need to change this is what is correct. And so selectively reading the Quran

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

is something we see nowadays. Certainly

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

a distorted understanding we're never going to fall into it. Ben was right you did

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

I have distorting the words of the Quran.

00:25:03--> 00:25:39

But we can't because Allah has promised to protect this book, as opposed to the previous nations not that he couldn't protect the book. That's important fact people always say you you guys, you muslim say we can put a guard going to protect his book. We're not saying that couldn't we saying God chose to entrust people with protecting the book. And they kept failing that trust in with when it comes to this last Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he said, This is the last book, no one's entrusted with protecting it, you're obligated to protect it, but it's ultimately going to be protected whether you try or not, you're just either going to be guilty for not trying or dignified and honored for

00:25:39--> 00:25:43

serving that cause. Anyway, so you're not gonna distort the

00:25:44--> 00:26:12

words of the Quran but distorting the meanings of the Quran is something we see all around us, right? Don't we try to explain away dismiss certain concepts of the Quran that are not aligned with the trending modern culture? Absolutely. And so if we try to do that, if we try to do that, we will be able to do that be able to meaning what meaning in our eyes will think we found in the Quran reasons to not follow the intended meaning of the whole land.

00:26:14--> 00:27:00

And so we should be very afraid of that we should be very afraid of Allah azza wa jal allowing us to believe our own dishonesty and turning our hearts off from the reality of what he's saying to us. And that is why hasn't or Qatada Anahola, the great February student earnest money Malik he says that nobody stands up from the Quran, meaning from a moment of sitting down with the Quran, except that he will either improve or he will become worse. He said because Allah said this in the Quran, he said, We're known as the human for any man who worship or I mean, while is equal volume in a la casa, we sent down this Quran in a way that that offers that brings mercy and cure to the believers.

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

And it only increases the wrongdoer in loss. The more he reads, the more straight he goes without the biller. And so the Quran is very much about the receptacle with which you come to this lesson book container with what you presented. If it's a contaminated container, it will contaminate the purest water that has spilled inside of it. And so the purest Words of Allah if it's the going back to the second or third if it's not used the key him first and then teaching the book and the Wisdom. It is a

00:27:28--> 00:27:34

dangerous path from there a very dark and ugly bathroom there. So studying the Quran as it is.

00:27:36--> 00:28:12

being sincere and studying the Quran is a very important part. But before that you need to act on a bit of what you know for sure you will always be a gap between what you know and what you do because it's easier to learn than to act. But for you not to totally be negligent of what you're learning when you learn something say okay how can I act on some of this? How can I act on this at least once before I forget it? How can this type of respect for the Quran I just taking it for granted. Not just think of it as an intellectual luxury is a huge part of that we should not assume that we have control of our hearts. May Allah protect our hearts and yours from from his understanding his

00:28:12--> 00:28:13


00:28:14--> 00:28:15

does not lock in.

00:28:17--> 00:28:26

We discuss the topic of death and how the Jewish people were challenged with wishing for death

00:28:28--> 00:28:35

what should be our relationship with the concept of death? You know death is something that

00:28:36--> 00:28:40

some people fear with a person not to fear death

00:28:41--> 00:28:45

How should our attitude to death really be

00:28:46--> 00:28:51

coming from the Jewish people that we don't make the same mistake?

00:28:52--> 00:28:58

That's a great question. Not just some people fear death like everyone's supposed to.

00:28:59--> 00:29:05

In some sense, even if the hola Ana, she said this right? She said there's a hadith in,

00:29:06--> 00:29:24

in in Bukhari and Muslim where I show the Lavon has said it the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whomever loves to meet Allah, Allah loves meeting them and whoever is meeting Allah Allah hates meeting them. She said he also Allah we all hate to die. Like it's just human nature, who loves to die, who loves to go inside of a box go inside of the ground, enter into the unknown.

00:29:27--> 00:29:37

And so he said to relate to that chaos. This he's not, this is not what I'm speaking about. He said, rather, I'm talking about when the angel

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

comes to a person at death and gives them the GLAAD title at that point. Allah loves meeting those people and the person at death who sees the angel that comes to them with the awful news of what awaits them. And so they hate meeting Allah and so Allah hates meeting them. And so it is completely natural.

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

Are to hate death, to be afraid of death to be severed from from your world.

00:30:06--> 00:30:10

Especially when you when you don't even as a believer, you don't know what awaits you in the next world, right?

00:30:12--> 00:30:16

We are not we are hopeful, we are not certain. We are hopeful we are not certain.

00:30:18--> 00:30:39

And so that is perfectly natural. The idea here is that death is extremely liberating. And it should always be remembered so far as it is liberating, liberating from what, that the things that we consider are huge in our life, like our problems, our ambitions about life. it liberates us from that life.

00:30:40--> 00:31:01

Not that big, it's actually much smaller than that it helps you calibrate, it liberates you from that over inflation. And likewise, those things that are so huge, like our salah, like our Eman which seem to be all we can really notice is a little bit of their importance, it liberates you from that tiny box. And it lets you know exactly how what their actual size is, in the.

00:31:10--> 00:31:51

Reality of Things so it liberates you from the fake reality, printed for yourself to always be remembered so long as it is productive in that nature. That should not be remembered when it will at least be like there's no point in trying. Because we're all going to die anyway. This is not to this is not the type of morbid hopelessness that Islam calls for at all. Islam calls for the very opposite. It calls you to not be held back by anything in this world, including your departure from this world. That's what Islam calls for. That's basically it. And so, if you are caught off guard, by death

00:31:54--> 00:32:04

you know, from this world, you're severed from this world by death, that thought should get you to prepare for death really well. It is moving is motivated, right? It should also

00:32:06--> 00:32:39

get you to not worry too much. Because you are being handed off to Allah azza wa jal from Allah azza wa jal, he's still in control of my life in my afterlife, that is good for me, grant me that if death is bad for me, give me more life. That's the idea you don't really know. And so your it helps you number one, prepare and number two, trust. The Islamic perspective on death helps you do that. And this is all found where in the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim said, Oh Allah by your knowledge of the Unseen

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

and you're

00:32:43--> 00:33:08

a B ability over your creation, grant me life so long as life is good for me and put me to death whenever you know that death is better for me. That's a very beautiful perspective, in terms of more life could be more problems more life could be more hurts, more life could be more sense. At the same time, more life could be more good deeds and higher level goals and better company in Jannah.

00:33:09--> 00:33:10

Allah, Allah Allah

00:33:12--> 00:33:30

does not care during the time of revelation of these verses. In Medina during the time of the NABI sallallahu alayhi salam, did any of the Jewish people accept Islam in response to these verses? And if so,

00:33:32--> 00:33:39

are there any inspirational stories for us from any of the Sahaba that converted from Judaism?

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

That certainly

00:33:43--> 00:34:03

the low iron was over the very first people. He was the first rabbi to become Muslim. Abdullah in the salam was in Medina on the Lebanese Salam said on the Prophet SAW Selim came to first came to Medina as he was writing in, I heard him say, oh, people after salaam spread peace, spread security among people, while trying to arm and food feed one another feed people food.

00:34:06--> 00:34:16

Also Luminesce lately when Estonian was a little bit lazy, when Estonia and pray at night or people are asleep, that the hotel janitor visa Amule enter paradise safely and securely.

00:34:18--> 00:34:22

He said I looked in his face for Ireland to acknowledge that he cared. And I

00:34:23--> 00:34:27

looked at his face and I knew that this was not the face of a liar.

00:34:30--> 00:34:42

And so ultimately, Lenin said I went to the Ramadan as a lotto Salaam and confirmed that he was a prophet and he embraced Islam and he said to him, do not tell my people I became Muslim because my people are people have booked to me in slender.

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

They make up lies and they spread them about people. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to an agreement with the salam and how he would break the news to the rest of the Jews. And so he invited the some of their senior scholars over and even the salam was hiding behind a

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

A curtain or a wall? And he said to them, what do you say about Abdullah? Having said that?

00:35:05--> 00:35:06

They said he is

00:35:08--> 00:35:15

our leader and the son of our leader, and he is our scholar and the son of our scholar. He's the most knowledgeable of us and some of the most knowledgeable of us.

00:35:17--> 00:35:25

He said, and what would you say if he became Muslim? They said, our oath of Allah, He would never do something like this, he would never follow your fake religion.

00:35:28--> 00:35:44

So I'd love to tell him at that point came out, and said, I do testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and none is worthy of worship of Allah. And so they said, You are the most evil of our son of the most evil of us, you are the most ignorant of us, the son of the most ignorant of us.

00:35:46--> 00:35:54

And they went about spreading their lies. When when the Jews of Medina kept asking the Prophet SAW Salem certain questions to verify his prophethood.

00:35:56--> 00:36:17

And he kept answering correctly and sometimes not answering and him answering would have this that would have been held against him because they asked him certain questions that no one is, is supposed to know but a prophet and that certain questions that no one is supposed to know period, and he passed all of those tests. And so the best of them who didn't become Muslim, there's the fact that he was a prophet. But they,

00:36:19--> 00:36:45

once again, they understood what they wanted to understand that okay, you are a prophet but a prophet, you don't mean a prophet to the unlettered people. You're not a prophet to us, meaning you don't apply to us because you're not from venomous Salafi. And so some of them rejected His prophets that altogether some of them accepted he was a prophet, but they refuse to embrace Him as their prophet, which is a selective reading of the Quran because the Quran that called him a prophet to the will me to the Amin also said, he's a prophet all of humanity,

00:36:46--> 00:36:54

meaning he's a prophet to humanity through the army. In any case, that's a second category third category people like I said, Abu did embrace his message

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

and Cavalia Guevara many others who we can talk about earlier time and trauma

00:37:01--> 00:37:01

does not feel like

00:37:03--> 00:37:16

it's a question from a participant. They heard you use the term adolescent now. Well, JAMA, can you explain what this term means? And is it a term only in the 70s?

00:37:18--> 00:37:22

I didn't use that term today. Someone is doing some investigative journalism about me.

00:37:25--> 00:37:30

I didn't use that term today, but I have no problem explaining it. This term is attributed to

00:37:31--> 00:37:34

Abdullah having our best so the a lot of humor.

00:37:35--> 00:37:42

He said when basically the phenomenon of the whole adage came out, but collided with the rebels. That called

00:37:43--> 00:37:46

that call Oliver we thought of gaffer about the low tide and who

00:37:51--> 00:38:33

assaulted them said about the whole adage that they are good enough the dogs are the hellfire. But in any case, this was the first bit and many other Vidar arose like innovation, innovative, unprecedented beliefs. And so people began becoming cultish. Like, every time someone thinks of a belief that has no precedent it's not traceable all the way back to the Sunnah. It is their own brainchild, they would start like hovering around it like the Pete like minded people would become a cult based on a certain ideology to use modern terms. And so when I best said when these things started becoming apparent, we had to identify ourselves. So the way we pride ourselves saying we are

00:38:33--> 00:39:09

no sooner well Gemma, which means we are the people of the Sunnah, meaning we require that every belief that we have is traceable all the way back to the Sunnah. Not the one personality or another who, who developed it supposedly out of his mind or the clan or the Sunnah or the or, or a Persian or a Greek understanding of a verse selective reading a verse of the Quran and Sunnah stuff like that. He said, we are people of the Sunnah. Well, Gemma and the community, meaning the the Unity, we didn't get divided based on these things. And we did not break off from what the original community the Muslim community believe.

00:39:10--> 00:39:52

That's how they sometimes just call that a sunnah. The people of the Sunnah. And by people of the Sunnah, what they mean is the, the belief system in the time of the Prophet sallallahu, Orissa and its companions. They don't mean sunnah, in the sense that we use sometimes within Sunni Muslims within filter discussions. It's a recommended act. Part of the perfect example of the Prophet SAW Salem, not mandatory No, no. When people are talking about RP dogma theology and they use the word sunnah. They mean the belief system that is traceable all the way back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not arise later on. So when it arrives later on, it caused this unity. Every

00:39:52--> 00:40:00

person runs off with their own faction. And so how do we identify the original if not invested with some of us started

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

Using the term Atlas so no, Gemma doesn't mean you have to use this term. It doesn't mean everyone who uses this term actually means by it would have not best said. And it's also doesn't mean that everyone who uses this term and means Why did not best said actually knows what if not best, and the rest of the Sahaba were upon. It's a term sometimes it's useful. Sometimes you need to clarify further if it becomes vague in a certain time or place that be hijacked. Because

00:40:27--> 00:40:36

there's a question here, I heard some excerpts are taken from the Torah and are in the Quran. Is it true?

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

Okay, so

00:40:44--> 00:40:55

I'm not sure what the questioner means by it, because it could be understood two different ways. But let me try to quickly answer both. If it is meant that the Prophet SAW Salem plagiarize from the Torah

00:40:57--> 00:40:59

there is nothing sillier

00:41:00--> 00:41:31

that the critics of Islam tried to say than that because even the Quran by the way, the Quran says this. They say listen, Allah, they don't hear me that tongue meaning the language that they attribute him to say that he took from somewhere else. Well, that somewhere else was set in a different language. It will have that Kitab when RW mov and this is a clear Arabic Quran, meaning let's say for example, even though there's ways to disprove probably not take from them other ways, but let's just assume for argument's sake he took from them, you plagiarized from them?

00:41:34--> 00:41:44

Their book was not Arabic. And so how do you account for the masterpiece the linguistic literary masterpiece of the Quran, right.

00:41:46--> 00:42:14

And even if it were in Arabic, that's old. Ah, there other proofs that the Quran does not match the Torah. There are many places of divergence between the plan and the Torah, that by the way, historically have been proven to be aligned, like their historical reality is aligned with the Quran. Not that's that's what I was mistaken many times historically. The Bible has been many facts in the Bible have been disproven historically, through carbon dating and otherwise, none of those, the Quran

00:42:16--> 00:42:22

copied if the Quran copied alchemy didn't copy those parts. Because the Quran came from Allah not from the Torah,

00:42:23--> 00:42:38

the distorted version of the total. That's the first way to understand this question that it was plagiarism. The second way is that Allah azza wa jal actually repeated words that were in the Torah, in the Quran, and this is not really true.

00:42:39--> 00:42:55

Maybe concepts like the concept of the 10 commandments, this is what some scholars consider, I added so that lnM a re capturing of the 10 commandments, the sacred commandments also are their narrations. And Sahil Bukhari from

00:42:56--> 00:43:26

from the Latin 100 that asked about the Allah Juan Houma, who said, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his description in the Quran was like his description in the Torah. And then he recited his description of the Torah, there was some matching of words of paraphrases, but it's not identical. And it's not identical. And he mentioned they have to do with the law. You interviewing outside America, check the membership. I wanted to get to the end of it, and he speaks about the difference where it doesn't continue the way this order continues. I hope that answers the question.
