Smilla Rahmanir Rahim hamdulillah behind me a lot of Salah to attend Motus lien on so you know what Imam you know hubby Vina will pass in Mohammed Abdullah Bala earlier he was here with tourbillion woman to be on the ASEAN and laomi Deen so pannacotta and Milena in lemon Montana in Atlanta Lollywood Hakeem Bish roughly surgery us silly and revival of determinedly Sania probably I praise Allah Almighty and I said prayers and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his noble family righteous companions and all those that follow them with the right guidance until the day of judgment I mean, glory be to you Allah no knowledge have we accept that which you have

00:00:42--> 00:00:50

taught us in the you are the All Knowing the all wise, my dear brothers and sisters, Mr. de como rahmatullahi wa barakato.

00:00:51--> 00:01:30

We continue with the Tafseer of Surah Al Baqarah. And we got to the following a Allah subhanho wa Taala says God will be reluctant to share our dreams Smilla rahmanir rahim. bahala Delia who do they said in surah Allah shame all that in us all I said earlier who do I show you near to Luenell kita galley cap on the INA Ala Moana Miss La Kohli him from La Jolla como Vina who Neo myopia Latifi American movie, Telly foon.

00:01:32--> 00:02:12

A few verses before Allah subhanaw taala was telling us how the Jews and the Christians were saying that no one will enter paradise except the people from their own religion. So the Jews said only Jews will enter Paradise and the Christians will said only Christians will enter paradise and then Allah subhana wa Taala said otherwise it's about submitting one's face to Allah subhanaw taala and being righteous and doing good deeds, then in the following area that we are at today. Allah subhanaw taala tells us that the Jews said

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

that the Christians are upon nothing.

00:02:18--> 00:02:49

Quality the who lay set in the surah Allah che the Christians are upon nothing. Meaning upon nothing means that they are not upon the correct religion. They are not upon the truth. It's another way of saying that they are following a false religion. But saying it this way makes it Allah shake there upon nothing. me it's almost like there's nothing correct about their religion.

00:02:50--> 00:03:04

And then the do said the same. The Christian said the same about the Jews. The Jews are upon nothing in religion, they are not upon the truth. It seems similar to

00:03:05--> 00:03:22

what was mentioned before when they said that no one will enter paradise except people from our own religion here. It is saying that they are not upon the correct religion so they are criticizing the other

00:03:24--> 00:03:26

religion. This

00:03:27--> 00:03:31

Wallah Halima has an authentic reason of revelation

00:03:33--> 00:03:48

as Imam Ibn is Huck narrates, in a chain of narration that goes to even our best are the Allahumma who said that the Christians

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

often the giran

00:03:51--> 00:04:00

that came to visit the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the famous delegation known as was Nasaan Iran.

00:04:02--> 00:04:06

This delegation of Nigerian came from an area close to Yemen.

00:04:08--> 00:04:18

So they went to Medina to see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and to discuss and debate the issue of religion.

00:04:19--> 00:04:28

So when the delegation of Nigerian came to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam, and the Jews knew of it, the rabbi's then came

00:04:30--> 00:04:34

and witnessed some of what was going on, and then said the Christians are upon nothing.

00:04:37--> 00:04:40

And the one who said it was Russia, for a Mullah from the Jews.

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

And then, he also

00:04:46--> 00:04:49

declared his disbelief

00:04:50--> 00:04:53

in Raisa Ali salah

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

and the Bible

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

and then after

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

At the Christians replied in kind,

00:05:04--> 00:05:15

one of the leaders replied, and they also said you are upon nothing. And he this believed in Musa alayhis salam and the Torah.

00:05:16--> 00:05:20

So Allah subhanaw taala revealed this verse

00:05:25--> 00:05:28

it's interesting that

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

Katahdin, Mujahid

00:05:33--> 00:05:37

Robbie, Allah on hooba said that actually

00:05:39--> 00:05:44

the first of the Jews and the Christians were upon something.

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

In other words, the first ones,

00:05:50--> 00:06:02

the first ones that did not innovate in the religion, they were upon something because they were upon the true religion. They were the true followers of Musa alayhis salam and the true followers of Isa.

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

Right? So they said the first ones were upon something.

00:06:09--> 00:06:15

But yes, these ones many centuries later, or upon nothing.

00:06:17--> 00:06:43

So if that's the case, then why is Allah subhanaw taala? chastising them because here, this is chastisement. This is not just Allah azza wa jal telling us about what happened. He's chastising them. He's criticizing them. Why is he criticizing them? If as a third and Mujahid are saying the first ones were upon something, these ones are upon nothing

00:06:45--> 00:06:48

because of what they innovated, they are no longer following the true religion.

00:06:50--> 00:06:58

So what is the problem if they do say to the Christians here upon nothing, which is true, and the Christians are telling the Jews here upon nothing, which is also true?

00:07:01--> 00:07:05

This was an issue scholars have brought up.

00:07:08--> 00:07:13

We set up a new Zune. The reason of revelation I just mentioned to you clarifies it,

00:07:14--> 00:07:29

because what ended up happening is that the Roger Ebert formula did not only say, you Christians are upon nothing, he disbelieved in Louisa, on a salad and the Bible and this is the problem.

00:07:31--> 00:07:39

You may think they are upon nothing. But that does not mean and that should not lead you now to disbelieving.

00:07:40--> 00:07:49

In someone who is a genuine prophet of Allah, Isa Alexa and the Bible, the genuine book of Allah that was revealed to him.

00:07:52--> 00:08:01

And the same for the for the Christians, in disbelieving Musa Ali, Sarah and the Torah. So the problem here is what

00:08:03--> 00:08:06

this believing in the original

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

unadulterated religion, this is the problem.

00:08:12--> 00:08:17

When they said they set it Nosara Allah che, they're disbelieving now in the original

00:08:18--> 00:08:21

when there wasn't an innovation in it.

00:08:22--> 00:08:26

And same with the Christians toward the Jews. This is the problem.

00:08:28--> 00:08:38

This is why they are being criticized. And furthermore, it says we're home near to the Al Kitab. And they recite the book

00:08:40--> 00:09:03

which book they are under kitab. We keep referring to them as the people of the book that in itself is praised. This is an accolade to GitHub, you are a people of a book you are people of knowledge, the pagans of NACA used to come to you to seek your knowledge. You are a people to whom revelation came.

00:09:06--> 00:09:35

So well whom is known as the key term. They recite the book and yet, what do they do now? They are disbelieving in ESA the other others are disbelieving in Musa alayhis salam and the books that were revealed to either of them, this is a problem precisely as a narration as well of Lebanon bass mentions, where he said

00:09:36--> 00:09:42

that what is mentioned in Nikita in the book that they are reciting

00:09:43--> 00:09:56

is actually that they should believe in the others profit and book, meaning the Jews who said the Christians are upon nothing are told in the Torah

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

that there will be another prophet

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

Coming and he is a Saudi Salah and he will be receiving the Bible and in G so how can they now disbelieve in him? If they disbelieve in him they're disbelieving in the Torah which they are reciting well who meet Luna Nikita

00:10:16--> 00:10:17

and they recite the book.

00:10:18--> 00:10:33

And similarly the Christians are reciting their book. And in it as an ambassador of the Allah on Houma says, and it also is mentioned of the Torah that came before

00:10:34--> 00:10:52

and Prophet Musa Ali salah and the fact that they are supposed to believe in both. So you are now disbelieving in the book that you are reciting, when you disbelieve in the others prophet and the others book. So they are being criticized well homier, Kunal kitab.

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

When you read that, of course,

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

it's a reminder to us as Muslims as well,

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

because it reminds us of the era when a demon comes Shanahan told me the Highlander de Loup de Loup or Acropolis

00:11:13--> 00:11:19

don't let your dislike or hatred of a people

00:11:21--> 00:11:28

do not allow that to make you judge them in a way that is not just

00:11:30--> 00:11:43

you should be just because it is closer to Taqwa. And this is very difficult to be just towards someone you dislike or towards an enemy.

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

This is not easy. So now here and yeah, who do I

00:11:49--> 00:12:09

have okay, they are saying you are not upon anything. And they dislike the other faction, the other group. This should not, however, lead you now, to disbelieve in what you are required to believe in. So in other words, they went too far. And they allowed their dislike

00:12:10--> 00:12:13

for them to look at them unjustly.

00:12:15--> 00:12:26

This is why they are being criticized, for whom yet you uneducated. This is why they are being mentioned. Furthermore, when we read that we might say to ourselves,

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


00:12:30--> 00:12:50

it doesn't seem like they're having that kind of exchange. You are not upon anything. The other group says no, you are not upon anything or any truth in terms of religion. It looks like there are the best of friends, the closest of allies, right.

00:12:52--> 00:13:00

And we mentioned that, of course, this is the suburb in the zoo, the reason of revelation for the isup. Furthermore,

00:13:01--> 00:13:05

we mentioned the long history,

00:13:06--> 00:13:17

the long history of difficulties, and altercations and enmity and wars between them.

00:13:18--> 00:13:25

I think we mentioned that in a talk about Philistine which you should find here.

00:13:27--> 00:13:28


00:13:30--> 00:13:41

But now we see something different, very different, almost the opposite. How did that happen? We talked a little bit about that, and discuss some of that history.

00:13:42--> 00:13:53

So the Quran is telling us this is the kind of discussion they were having in front of the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam when the delegation of Nigerian came to him, right.

00:13:54--> 00:14:06

Does that mean it's not happening now? No, it's happening now as well. Yes, they are allies? Yes, they are very close. Yes, things are much better than they were before. That's true.

00:14:07--> 00:14:43

To a large extent, for different reasons. Okay. They tried to mend their ways. They now talk about something called a Judeo Christian tradition almost is as if it is one thing. So the Jews would might quote, the Old Testament, but rarely, and the Christians or sorry, the Jews, oh, my god, the New Testament, okay, or the Bible? Not always, but maybe sometimes. Again, some some of it is lip service. Some of it is interests,

00:14:44--> 00:14:54

interests, some of our interests today, political interests, and save interests. And ultimately, yes, they come together.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

When that means going in

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

against a shared enemy, that may be the Muslims.

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

So they might put their hands

00:15:08--> 00:15:27

together. And they might work together against what they might see as a common enemy, which is Islam and Muslims. Not all of them, obviously. But yes, some of those with animosity towards Islam, the Islamophobes of the world, the people who are inciting

00:15:29--> 00:15:33

violence against Islam and Muslims, that can happen.

00:15:34--> 00:16:21

But ultimately, yes, he will still find Christians saying that the Jews are upon nothing, and the only way to be saved to follow Jesus Christ. And the Jews are saying something similar. And they might just call it a heresy. And the Jews were before them, and the long history of oppression and persecution of the Jews by the Christians. So you still have some of that? You will still hear some of that. But yes, it does seem that to a large extent, that landscape of relations religiously and politically has changed. While homeotic Lunella keytab Cattolica Allah Levine, Allah Allahu LA County him.

00:16:23--> 00:16:28

Similarly, those who do not know many who do not have knowledge,

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

said something similar.

00:16:33--> 00:16:36

Similar to what the Jews and the Christians just said,

00:16:37--> 00:16:44

Who are these people? The ones who do not know, then you can call and Adina Leia, Mrs. Akali,

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

Evangel rage?

00:16:48--> 00:16:50

Asked about

00:16:51--> 00:17:02

who are these people, but once you do not know. So he said to him, these are nations that came before the Jews and the Christians

00:17:04--> 00:17:07

who said something similar to what the Jews and the Christians are saying here?

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


00:17:12--> 00:17:13

This is one opinion.

00:17:14--> 00:17:24

The other opinion is that those who do not know here is a reference to the pagan Arabs.

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

The pagan Arabs in Makkah,

00:17:29--> 00:17:38

who persecuted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Muslims and eventually kicked them out of Makkah, or caused them to be kicked out of Makkah.

00:17:39--> 00:17:54

Those are the ones who do not know they are doing something similar to what the Jews and the Christians say. When they say about the Muslims, they are upon nothing. And they completely reject the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

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


00:17:59--> 00:18:48

True to form, as usual, in many different cases, will take the general opinion, especially if it seems the expression can indeed be a reference to the different possibilities. And here it seems that is the case. Allah did not tell us exactly who they are. He said those who do not know it couldn't be a reference to those before nations before the Jews and the Christians. And it's gonna be a reference to the pagan Arabs, the ones who are right there, persecuting the Muslims. And it seems Allahu Allah, a lot of MUFA serine are taking that opinion seems like a stronger opinion that it is those pagan Arabs.

00:18:50--> 00:19:04

Why we will see when we get to the next area, but again as Muslims now also we learn, we learn from this, that especially for us,

00:19:05--> 00:19:16

we know that even in Islam, there are different groups, there are different ideas. There are different methodologies, right, especially when it comes to that

00:19:17--> 00:19:20

and you have 101 your opinions as we all know.

00:19:23--> 00:19:27

There it behooves us to learn from this.

00:19:28--> 00:19:35

It is not proper to just come out and give a blanket statement and say something like

00:19:36--> 00:19:38

this group is upon nothing.

00:19:39--> 00:19:59

They don't know anything, almost as if they have not been able to get any part of the truth at all. Usually that is not the case, as you know, right? Brothers and sisters, in all endeavors even between husband and wife, right? It's rare that one group has

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

us all the truth, right?

00:20:04--> 00:20:27

A lot of times a certain group will have part of the truth, right? So when we deal with each other, the different Muslim groups, some of them Subhanallah as if they are going to go to battle against each other, it's not appropriate to say oh this group is upon nothing, as if they are almost disbelievers.

00:20:29--> 00:20:37

This is also being criticized. This is not the way to mend relations and to try to

00:20:40--> 00:20:45

bring Muslims closer to each other and achieve the kind of unity that we all seek.

00:20:50--> 00:20:58

To Danica Carla, Nadine Allah Allah Munna Mithila commonly him so now the pagan Arabs are also saying these Muslims are upon nothing.

00:20:59--> 00:21:13

They should come back to our religion and worship the idols, they should come back to the original religion. This is an innovation and they used to call them sabia as we know

00:21:15--> 00:21:25

and insult them in different ways. Lei Ala Moana Miss La Colleen from La Jolla como Bina homeodomain pianeta FEMA can be here.

00:21:27--> 00:21:32

Allah subhana wa Tada will judge between them, young woman

00:21:34--> 00:21:39

on the Day of Resurrection, in that which they used to differ a

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


00:21:42--> 00:21:44

When you think about

00:21:45--> 00:21:46

the amount

00:21:48--> 00:21:51

of difference differences of opinion

00:21:52--> 00:21:57

and argumentation that has happened in the history and is happening now.

00:21:59--> 00:22:11

There are 1000s of opinions. Take the simplest possible statement. Give me a simple statement, the simplest you can give me.

00:22:14--> 00:22:20

Can you give me a simple statement that nobody should argue about? Nobody should disagree about

00:22:23--> 00:22:37

Alhamdulillah The sky is blue. I don't think anyone should disagree. You will find disagreement brother. You will find people who say otherwise no actually is not really blue. But this is the reflection of this and that.

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


00:22:40--> 00:22:53

All kinds of things. Mind you. Yeah, some of these statements. Hopefully. You shouldn't find too much disagreement about the Earth is round. No, there are still people who say the earth is flat.

00:22:55--> 00:22:56


00:22:57--> 00:22:58

God is one.

00:22:59--> 00:23:14

Allahu Akbar, the most unequivocal and magnificent statement? No, who said God is one? No, I don't believe there is a God. No, God is one of three. No, God is something else.

00:23:18--> 00:23:22

All of the different things people different about

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

all of the similar examples to you are upon nothing, you are upon nothing, you know nothing. You are ignorant.

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

Allah will judge on the Day of Judgment.

00:23:39--> 00:23:40


00:23:42--> 00:23:47

obviously what's happening in Palestine to us, it is as clear as the sky is blue.

00:23:49--> 00:23:54

It seems that clear to millions and millions of people around the world. But yet

00:23:55--> 00:23:58

there are people that are other let's call them human beings

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

who are siding

00:24:02--> 00:24:09

with those criminals with those terrorists with those child killers with those bloodthirsty

00:24:11--> 00:24:12


00:24:16--> 00:24:34

And it's just it's been rages on, on battles online. Allahu Jacobina. Allah will judge between all of those, the Jews and the Christians who said this and the pagan Arabs and every other sect and group.

00:24:35--> 00:24:37

Allah is going to judge on that day.

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

Use even speaking for the last for many, let's say 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of years. Enough, shut up. Shut your mouth. Allah speaks today. Allah judges. Allah will judge all of that everyone will know who was truthful and who was a liar.

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

It was correct. It was incorrect. Allahu Jacobina homeodomain P. P Mercado v here. Allah will judge between them on that day.

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

They were busy judging each other.

00:25:15--> 00:25:18

You are not upon anything. No, you are not upon anything.

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

Sometimes we are too busy judging others instead of looking at ourselves

00:25:28--> 00:25:40

correcting our faults, right? Allah will judge Allah is the ultimate judge for La Jolla Calvino me on 1pm Female Colonel fee yesterday for

00:25:44--> 00:25:48

the next area, Allah subhanaw taala says, Woman Allah will

00:25:51--> 00:25:57

do the law he wasn't the coffee how smooth was coffee

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


00:26:03--> 00:26:05

a Hulu

00:26:06--> 00:26:14

or if he in the home feed dunya is you will hear right

00:26:15--> 00:26:17

now the

00:26:21--> 00:26:26

woman on the left who and who is worse, was more unjust

00:26:27--> 00:26:36

than the one who prevents the massaging of Allah that his name be mentioned in it.

00:26:37--> 00:26:44

These are the enemies of Islam, the enemies of Allah and the enemies of the masajid.

00:26:46--> 00:26:50

Here also, there seems to be a reasonable revelation.

00:26:52--> 00:27:10

Again, as narrated by the man in his heart, in a chain of narration that goes to a basketball the Allahumma that he said that this is when Hareesh prevented the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam from a Masjid Al haram. This is a reference to that.

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


00:27:13--> 00:27:32

Andromeda Benzedrine Islam mentions a similar opinion. This is when they prevented the Muslims from a Masjid Al haram in alpha Davia as we know, when the Muslims went to perform the Umbra and the

00:27:33--> 00:27:37

pagans of Quraysh prevented them from doing so.

00:27:38--> 00:27:41

So this seems to be a reference to that.

00:27:44--> 00:27:53

And this would give credence to the opinion that we mentioned before that Cavalli kcal and levena lie

00:27:54--> 00:28:05

to him those who do not know who said something similar to the Jews and the Christians or the pagan Arabs, because the next idea it seems, is talking now about them.

00:28:07--> 00:28:13

And in their preventing of the Muslims from Al Masjid Al haram.

00:28:15--> 00:28:33

There are other opinions however, as well, that this idea is a reference to others. So you will find the scholars of tafsir also talking about the destruction of Jerusalem, which may have been the first destruction that is mentioned in Surah 10 Israel

00:28:35--> 00:28:40

which we discussed in a video I believe is different than the other one which you can also find here inshallah.

00:28:44--> 00:28:54

So, some scholars have said mentioned that the destruction that happened at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC.

00:28:55--> 00:29:24

This was the destruction of what must be the axon? Yes, of course, when the Jews talk about it in their history, they talk about the destruction of the temple, we talk about it as a Masjid Al Aqsa, this is what it is, it is a masjid and axon. And this is what Nebuchadnezzar destroyed wasafi Harar beha and they strive in the ruin to ruin the massages of Allah subhanaw taala to destroy them.

00:29:25--> 00:29:34

This was one of the greatest destructions of a masjid that we know that happened at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar. One of the reasons the scholars

00:29:35--> 00:29:36

try to

00:29:38--> 00:29:53

understand what exactly is meant by this in which misogyny is because we don't know that and Masjid Al Haram has been destroyed. We don't have information of the destruction of a masjid. How.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

So if it applies to the pagans of Metka in there

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

persecution of the Muslims, preventing them from entering a Masjid Al haram. But then the other part of the ISS was Santa Fe.

00:30:10--> 00:30:13

And they strive to destroy it.

00:30:16--> 00:30:27

So if a masjid How was not destroyed, so how can it apply to unless you the corrupt and thus, you will read some of those opinions, possibly unless you did axon

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

which happened, of course, in the first destruction. But it also happened afterwards, as we know, in 70 ce II, right, by Titus, right?

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

By the Romans.

00:30:46--> 00:30:49

And there are other attempts as well and we will come in sha Allah to

00:30:50--> 00:30:54

the present day as well. But this is why you will find

00:30:56--> 00:30:57


00:30:59--> 00:31:07

was inclined towards saying that it is not the pagans of Makkah for this reason that that Majid haram was not destroyed.

00:31:08--> 00:31:10

Very interestingly,

00:31:12--> 00:31:22

one of his students from many, many generations on who very often quotes him, and he might have been cathedra here different with his shake.

00:31:24--> 00:31:54

And he said, that ultimately that it is the pig is that this is a reference to the pagans of Makkah, and their prevention of the Muslims from Al Majid al haram. And he says, and what greater destruction is there to a masjid, then preventing the Muslims from entering it, then preventing those who seek that Masjid to pray and mention the name of Allah? subhanaw taala much.

00:31:55--> 00:31:58

And then he says something which seems

00:32:01--> 00:32:01


00:32:04--> 00:32:05

correct and convincing,

00:32:07--> 00:32:08

which is

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

the masjid is not

00:32:12--> 00:32:20

the building for the pillars or the decoration that's in it. It's what it's used for.

00:32:21--> 00:32:31

It's the Muslims praying in it, doing Roku and sudo that mention of Allah the mention of Allah that's why he mentioned the beginning what and use thereof he has small

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

mother has masajid Allah a youth karate has, this is the ultimate reason

00:32:41--> 00:32:48

for the masajid mentioning the name of Allah subhanaw taala what do we do in the masjid other than mention the name of Allah?

00:32:49--> 00:32:52

Through prayer and Likud and Quran presentation.

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

wasafi Haha.

00:32:57--> 00:33:05

So it seems like you've been cathedra is understanding haram here. I think Haram is a word even in right whether it is

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

an odd possibly.

00:33:10--> 00:33:13

I don't know about Malay zipmoney also.

00:33:14--> 00:33:28

Haram, no destruction. No. So evident cathedral seems to me understanding destruction here, metaphorically, not necessarily destroying the building.

00:33:29--> 00:33:31

This is what they will continue saying.

00:33:32--> 00:33:36

It's not about the building of the Masjid.

00:33:37--> 00:33:44

It's about what the message is being used for. So if the Muslims are being prevented from it, this is the greatest instruction.

00:33:45--> 00:33:51

So he says the pagans have prevented the Muslims from entering, entering and was in Haram.

00:33:52--> 00:34:00

And they had their idols and they'll shake their idolatry. What greater destruction for a machine is there than this?

00:34:01--> 00:34:05

It's not about a physical destruction.

00:34:06--> 00:34:11

And indeed, we may understand the idea that way. The Taarab here

00:34:12--> 00:34:26

is partly metaphorical, and partly physical actual destruction of the masjid actual ruining of the masjid which is also happening as we will mention,

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

too, why can't it be the pagans of Makkah, preventing them from Al Masjid Al haram?

00:34:36--> 00:34:55

Woman Avila who is worse who is worse indeed who is more unjust? Mana masajid Allah. He uses Cara he has more wasafi hora beha and strove in destroying them, destroying the masajid

00:34:56--> 00:34:57

Allah subhanaw taala said

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

in the Maya

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

Maru massages Allah, Muhammad Abdullah

00:35:04--> 00:35:07

the ones who truly

00:35:10--> 00:35:14

give the message its meaning are the ones who

00:35:15--> 00:35:24

believe in Allah subhanaw taala. And the last day, those people who are using the masjid for what it's used for, for the its main function

00:35:26--> 00:35:27


00:35:29--> 00:35:30

it doesn't make a difference.

00:35:33--> 00:35:34

We're so happy Harada

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

we see this now with these panela

00:35:40--> 00:35:48

We saw this in some of the countries where the tyrants did everything they could to prevent the Muslims from the masajid

00:35:49--> 00:35:55

there were attempts to block Muslims from going to the massagin

00:35:56--> 00:36:04

attempt at closing the masjid immediately after the Salah so that nothing else can be done in the masjid. The Masjid is not only for Salah

00:36:05--> 00:36:12

what we mentioned before is about mentioning the name of Allah. But there are other activities that are done in the masjid.

00:36:15--> 00:36:30

There's there are lessons. There's decades there's recitation of Quran, and there were so many other things that were done during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. There was Shura and there were

00:36:31--> 00:36:35

gathered gatherings to talk about the state of the Ummah and other things.

00:36:37--> 00:36:52

So, when we say that some of the tyrants and the supporters of the tyrants were doing this, they come under this iron, mana hammer masajid Allah, a youth Karafin.

00:36:53--> 00:36:59

They did what they can to dissuade the Muslims from the misogyny. They

00:37:01--> 00:37:24

even chased the Muslims, persecuted them and oppress them, terrorize them, scared them from going to the masajid because you might be labeled as an extremist or a terrorist. This is going on in some of the countries that we recognize, maybe as Arab or Muslim countries, obviously, not all but some

00:37:25--> 00:37:27

were where the tyrants rule

00:37:28--> 00:37:44

and they oppress and persecute the commander This is my mother, Hannah Sajid, Allah, a youth karate has small wasafi Sarabi. And they strive in destroying it by preventing the Muslims from it

00:37:46--> 00:37:50

and possibly by physically destroying it as well.

00:37:52--> 00:37:55

We know in some of the Arab countries

00:37:57--> 00:38:09

a person going to the masjid needs to be careful. I know maybe here you find that a little bit strange. But going to the masjid I might have to be careful because I need to see you know why being followed.

00:38:11--> 00:38:12

When the homicides

00:38:14--> 00:38:22

or yeah, maybe being photographed, okay? This person is or maybe if you're going to me, Salah

00:38:24--> 00:38:26

three Salah one day,

00:38:27--> 00:38:29

this is no exaggeration brothers and sisters

00:38:30--> 00:38:31

in Syria

00:38:33--> 00:38:47

during the Revolution, when the opposition activists were able to take over one of the centers for what is called political security.

00:38:48--> 00:38:57

And then they saw the files that they had on hand, it's on YouTube, I can show it to you. So they have files on hand. One of the files,

00:38:59--> 00:39:04

the people who go to the masjid, especially Fajr

00:39:05--> 00:39:08

Allah Akbar, especially Frasier.

00:39:09--> 00:39:15

Those are the ones they want. Those are the real terrorists and extremists. This is the kind of

00:39:17--> 00:39:21

regime that we were living under. For decades.

00:39:22--> 00:39:40

Now you start to understand why the Syrian people went out the way they did. This is the kind of fear that they try to instill in people's hearts to not go to the massage. So yes, parents will tell their children please my son, don't go to the masjid

00:39:41--> 00:39:45

or go once don't go three or four times. There'll be up to you.

00:39:47--> 00:39:56

You'll you'll be labeled woman Avila Moomin mana MSR did Allah a youth cut off he has small wasafi Harada

00:39:57--> 00:40:00

This is apart from the actual destruction

00:40:01--> 00:40:03

Look at what we are seeing in Palestine now.

00:40:05--> 00:40:16

Look at the destruction of the massages one after another. And these criminals are rejoicing. They are rejoicing at the destruction of the misogyny

00:40:18--> 00:40:35

and they seek to destroy all of the massage it, they sell it I read it online. They put videos of the massage being destroyed and they are rejoicing and hoping they can do that to the rest of the massage as well.

00:40:37--> 00:40:44

This happened in Syria, so many of the massages Allahu Akbar, you see it following destruction.

00:40:45--> 00:41:12

These are the worst of people woman Avila, Manama masajid Allah. These are people who are not only preventing the Muslims from going to the massage but they are destroying the massage kit. And Majid Al Aqsa is definitely one of those that has been destroyed several times, as we have mentioned

00:41:14--> 00:41:27

in the past in history, and now as well. In 1969, you might remember the very famous burning of an Majid Al Aqsa by one of those extremist terrorists

00:41:29--> 00:41:37

and, of course, mana Alamosa lien preventing the Muslims. We see this all the time we see this almost every Friday

00:41:38--> 00:41:39

in Jerusalem,

00:41:40--> 00:41:53

where these criminals are preventing the Muslims from an Masjid in Uppsala, or putting certain restrictions on who can enter who cannot enter women,

00:41:54--> 00:42:09

men and masajid Allah who is worse and more unjust than the ones who do these things. wasafi have our behalf and they strive and seek to ruin and destroy it.

00:42:11--> 00:42:15

Hula Comerica, and Allah whom a Lahore

00:42:18--> 00:42:31

Subhan Allah, those people, it is not fitting for them to enter them, those massage it except in a state of fear

00:42:32--> 00:42:35

in their heart ifIm what does this mean?

00:42:42--> 00:42:45

This could be possibly two things.

00:42:47--> 00:43:00

Either it is a hover, meaning, it is a fact that Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning, it is not befitting meaning they will not enter it except in a state of fear.

00:43:02--> 00:43:06

And even cathedral and others apply that to the pagans of Makkah.

00:43:08--> 00:43:23

When the Muslims finally took over, after al Fett in the eighth year Hijiri what happened then they could not enter the masjid except in a state of fear after the Muslims took it back from them.

00:43:25--> 00:43:47

And it was only when the Prophet salallahu Salam gave them that security. Whoever enters the masjid will be secure, that they were secure otherwise, they will only enter it in a state of fear. So some might understand from this an indication a foreshadowing of what happened after that.

00:43:49--> 00:43:56

Because we said Al Baqarah was revealed earlier during the Madani period, right.

00:43:57--> 00:44:03

So this is a fact. And we might apply it to all of the other situations as well.

00:44:04--> 00:44:20

That when they strive to destroy the massages of Allah subhanaw taala and prevent the Muslims from it. They will not be able to enter except in a state of fear. Allah is telling us they are they when they enter they enter it in a state of fear.

00:44:23--> 00:44:29

They are afraid of the truth. They're afraid of the proponents of truth.

00:44:31--> 00:44:37

On the other hand, it may also be understood as a command

00:44:40--> 00:44:45

we said we talked before about cuddling with our Shari.

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

Something that has to do with other decree. This is what we mentioned when we just mentioned that it is a fact that they will not enter accept in that way. I'm a shimmery it has to do with the shadow me

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

It's a command, this is what is supposed to happen. It is not befitting for them to enter it except in a state of fear meaning the Muslims, the role of the Muslims, is not to allow them to enter those massages except in the state of fear.

00:45:21--> 00:45:37

Because they are the enemies of the massage. They are the enemies of Allah, the enemies of the remembrance of Allah and the ones who remember Allah subhanaw taala and much so they are supposed to prevent them

00:45:39--> 00:45:53

and make sure that they cannot enter it except in a state of fear. Why? Because this is one of the holiest places, this is a masjid. This is the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:45:54--> 00:46:12

and we see what the enemies of Allah do when they enter the massages of Allah, how they desecrate the masjid of Allah, whether it is a Muslim axon or other massage it where are the Muslims? Who will not allow the masjid of Allah to be treated this way?

00:46:13--> 00:46:24

Without Willa Makana Lahoma yah hoo ha. in Lahore, ifIm la homefield dunya his Yun welcome Phil, Akira T

00:46:25--> 00:46:35

for them in this dunya is Kizzy is disgrace, and they will have a great punishment in the hereafter. This is the

00:46:36--> 00:47:03

Imam Ibn cathedra understands in terms of the pagans of NACA is what happened after the fact. They indeed were disgraced. They were kicked out of the masjid and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam announced in the next year, let no Mushrik come to the masjid. They are not allowed anymore. And eventually as we know he kicked out the Mushrikeen

00:47:04--> 00:47:14

this is part of the hizzy the disgrace that they suffered in the dunya don't fit dunya fizzy. They will have that disgrace here in the dunya.

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


00:47:17--> 00:47:32

what awaits them in the hereafter is even worse, the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala because they were desecrated, some of the holiest places on earth, the places where Allah subhanaw taala is mentioned.

00:47:34--> 00:47:38

Panda Allah Allah, wa sallahu wa sallim wa barik ala Nabina Muhammad

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


00:47:55--> 00:48:07

delegation of neuron was a delegation of Christians coming from the area of Nigeria and close to a lemon.

00:48:08--> 00:48:11

And they came

00:48:12--> 00:48:24

to Medina to meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a distinguished delegation. Some directions mentioned about 60 of them

00:48:26--> 00:48:28

14 Who were their

00:48:29--> 00:48:54

leaders, and they came in a way that was so impressive. It was like no other delegation, they have seen the way they were dressed and the way the basically presented themselves. So this was the delegation of Nigeria. And they came and they were discussing religion with the Prophet salallahu Salam, and he was

00:48:57--> 00:48:58

calling them to Islam.

00:49:00--> 00:49:07

It's a big thing. And then eventually, there was the issue of the MOBA Hala, where,

00:49:08--> 00:49:20

because they refused the DA so he told them in that case, we will do the MOBA, Hala, which is where they will meet and they will publicly invoke the curse of Allah upon the one who is lying.

00:49:22--> 00:49:39

Right. The famous story we will get to it in sha Allah and Allah umbra. Because it is known that sort of Le Imran big chunk of it from the beginning of it is revealed concerning the delegation of Nigerian Yes.

00:49:44--> 00:49:45

Everything else

00:49:56--> 00:49:57

let me ask a question.

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

The if we were to try to understand the

00:50:07--> 00:50:12

the second a Madonna Sajida Allah coming where it did

00:50:15--> 00:50:20

if we try to understand possibly the connection to what is before it or what is after it

00:50:22--> 00:50:24

and the ideas

00:50:27--> 00:50:29

okay, that will come later

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


00:50:35--> 00:50:38

for me, man, I'm sad Allah.

00:50:39--> 00:51:13

We said it seems that this largely is talking about the pagans of Makkah and what they did, and of course, it applies in general to all the masajid using the known rule of Tafseer, which I believe I have discussed here, which is a labor of love of love for sources suburb that the wisdom is extracted, the lesson is extracted through the generality of the expression, not the specificity of the

00:51:14--> 00:51:20

example or the reason, right. So, yes, it may have been we mentioned the reason of Revelation.

00:51:22--> 00:52:07

What happened to the Prophet salallahu Salam and how they prevented him, but it applies to every other situation where there are people preventing someone and not allowing them to go to the masjid or striving to ruin or destroy the masjid right in its message. So, if we say it is the beginnings of Mecca, and it's coming right after the ayah talking about Alia who doing the surah which by the way, is another reason that some scholars may have said that oh, this seems to apply to the NESARA Okay, the Christians and that Masjid Al Aqsa and what the Christians did to Al Masjid Al Aqsa, okay. And they talk about what the Crusaders did to Al Masjid xi, how they turned it into a pigsty. And

00:52:08--> 00:52:12

there was all the trash that was thrown over there.

00:52:13--> 00:52:21

So again, it just shows you the way the massages of Allah have been mistreated and desecrated.

00:52:22--> 00:52:29

So that was another reason I mentioned of the Jews and the Christians is that the Jews and the Christians or is it the pagans? That's better?

00:52:34--> 00:52:35


00:52:38--> 00:52:43

Okay, so some of the verses that came before seem to be connected, okay. All right.

00:52:44--> 00:52:56

Yes, even before that are closer to it what the cathedral and Kitab right now we do not come in by the mannequin. But again, this I mentioned of Al Kitab. Right.

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

Okay, it might be well, Allahu Allah.

00:53:06--> 00:53:10

Again, if we understand correctly, can call a Lavina lie

00:53:11--> 00:53:38

to him. We understood that to be most probably the pagans of Mecca, the mushriks right? And then immediately went to women of love woman by Madonna massage Allah. So we mentioned that immediately afterwards, it seems connected. And he's mentioning, we might say that it is an introductory mentioning one of their worst deeds, these Mushrikeen right.

00:53:40--> 00:53:51

nother possibility will allow Adam is that after he mentioned earlier who do and Asara the old saying that the Christians are upon nothing the Christian saying that Jews are upon nothing.

00:53:53--> 00:54:00

These people have hidden the truth, okay, have

00:54:02--> 00:54:24

somehow distorted the truth, okay, in what they're doing what they're saying. And ultimately, they ended up disbelieving in things that are clearly in their own books that they should believe in. So this is a distortion of the truth. And then Allah subhanaw taala mentioned which is what is worse than that, which is preventing

00:54:26--> 00:54:29

the truth from being disseminated by someone else.

00:54:30--> 00:54:33

So not only that, they distort the truth.

00:54:35--> 00:54:49

They then deprive others of the truth by preventing the Muslims from disseminating that truth and allowing that message to be

00:54:51--> 00:54:59

conveyed to everyone else. And this is similar to the famous Arabic think that

00:55:00--> 00:55:25

If they don't do anything good to anyone, they don't show mercy to others and then they try to prevent the Mercy of Allah from coming to someone else right so they distorted the truth and then they played an active role in an we're an obstacle to the truth being conveyed to others. Allah Allah Allah Allah

00:55:29--> 00:55:29


00:55:30--> 00:55:31


00:55:33--> 00:55:34

Subhana Allah,

00:55:35--> 00:55:38

Allah, Allah Allah and that's step one or two Riddick.
