Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Philomel Sana to what a term with this lien on so you do now Imam you now or have you been a Ben Carson Mohammed Abdullah while earlier he was supposed to be here with Barry woman Tabby heart on BSN in helium with Dean. So panic Allah and Milena Elana alum tena in Mecca interlobular Eileen will Hakeem Robicheaux Halle surgery where silly Emery mahalo of the 10 Min Lisa and you have got one holy I praise Allah Almighty and I send 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 mean

00:00:45--> 00:01:03

glory be to you Oh Allah, no knowledge that we accept that which you have taught us Indeed you are the All Knowing the all wise, my dear brothers and sisters as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakato. Hope everybody is doing well on this fine night. And we continue with the Tafseer of Surah Al Baqarah.

00:01:04--> 00:01:13

And we finished that long, Aya that starts with ownership ownership Smilla rahmanir, Rahim wa Tada, Uma, Tulu, shayateen.

00:01:15--> 00:01:21

The long IRA that is talking about the devils the magic prophets trilemma and Alayhis Salam.

00:01:23--> 00:01:33

And the idea we will start with today is just the completion of that section. So Allah subhanaw taala tells us

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

when whom and what Ebola MERS who bathroom in

00:01:41--> 00:01:45

Hawaii, lo que vous

00:01:48--> 00:02:13

if they were to believe, well I am no attacker if they were to believe and have Taqwa God consciousness, fear of Allah subhanaw taala, the diametrical opposite of what they did. So they through the book of Allah subhanaw taala. behind their backs, they followed what the demons taught, they followed magic.

00:02:14--> 00:02:26

So Allah subhanaw taala is saying, had they believed and had taqwa and feared Allah subhanaw taala. The reward of Allah subhanaw taala is much better

00:02:27--> 00:02:37

than I thought but to me nine dilla higher the reward of Allah subhanaw taala is better for them, if they only knew.

00:02:38--> 00:02:56

Notice, this area as well is evidence for those who say that that he is showing that learning magic. Teaching magic and practicing it is crucial.

00:02:57--> 00:03:00

Because now look at what he says, well,

00:03:01--> 00:03:02

welcome.

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

If only they had believed and had Taqwa

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

if they had believed, and had taqwa, so it means they didn't. They didn't believe it's the opposite of belief. So it's more evidence for those who said that magic is tougher, because now he's saying the opposite well unknown, and I know what tuckaway lemma through the two men and the law higher. So they chose and gave preference to that short, temporary fleeting gain in the dunya

00:03:40--> 00:03:56

in doing magic, thinking that this is what is going to benefit them, rather than choosing the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal, the reward of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala Well, I knew what taco and I know what taco

00:03:58--> 00:04:37

so as we see in many other places in the Quran, we see Eman and then we see alarm and asylum. Irma, no one you know, Salah heart, they're always coming together. You can just mention belief on its own belief goes hand in hand with righteous good deeds. Similarly, belief should lead to Taqwa fear of Allah subhanaw taala. It's not just enough to say I'm a workman technically I'm a woman is a very tall claim that not everyone can make. You might say I'm a Muslim. I was born a Muslim. I have a Muslim name, but maybe nothing in my life

00:04:38--> 00:04:58

seems to indicate that I am Muslim, or I am Mothman. And I know what taco Eman should definitely lead to fear of Allah takla Willow unknown ermine, we're talkin Lamassu but two minute delay hype the word of Allah subhanaw taala is better for them than what they chose.

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Hello Can we Allah moon, if they knew

00:05:03--> 00:05:18

it's almost as if they acted as if they don't know. Notice in the verse before, he also said whether it be summer shall be and foster home Low Can We Allah moon, if only they knew.

00:05:19--> 00:05:35

So they know it's bad, but they don't know the extent to which it is evil. And this is also indicated by the fact that they chose that over the reward of Allah subhanaw taala lo WHO CAN WE ARE lemon

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

for those who are interested in

00:05:40--> 00:05:56

let's say some of the details and nuances of Quranic recitation, you might have realized that when I recited it, I said them I thought that to me nine dilla height and I stopped Low Can We Allah moon, why

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

so low can we are the moon if only they knew

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

this is a condition

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

in this specific situation.

00:06:15--> 00:06:38

Some scholars are of the opinion that it is preferable to stop. Why? Because what preceded it is a fact is mentioned of a fact. A last part I set the menu button mean delay the reward from Allah subhanaw taala is better and best.

00:06:41--> 00:06:56

That is unconditional. It has no condition. They know it. They don't know it. You know what I know it doesn't matter the reward of Allah azza wa jal is best lemma through bitumen and the lie hide fact. You can we are alone if only they knew.

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

If you connect it,

00:07:01--> 00:07:03

it may or someone

00:07:04--> 00:07:09

may understand it to mean the reward of Allah is best if they knew.

00:07:11--> 00:07:15

But if they didn't know then maybe it's not.

00:07:16--> 00:07:32

You will hear reciters connecting it but some scholars say it's preferable to stop there because what is mentioned before that is a fact that stands on its own. Lemme through by two minute delay high yield

00:07:33--> 00:07:39

low current and similarly with the ayah that we spoke about last time.

00:07:41--> 00:07:51

Then Allah azza wa jal says yeah you Larina moolah taboo or are you gonna work? Oh no.

00:07:55--> 00:07:56

Oh you believe

00:07:58--> 00:08:01

later Kulu Reiner don't say Romina.

00:08:03--> 00:08:13

Interestingly, in the order of the most half starting with Surah, Al Fattah hand and Al Baqarah and Alia and Ron that we have today

00:08:14--> 00:08:17

this is the first year you will Latina Amman

00:08:18--> 00:08:24

so the from the beginning of circle Bukhara Allah subhanaw taala has been telling us about

00:08:25--> 00:08:29

the Jews and the story of the Jews and there are

00:08:31--> 00:08:38

many is talking to the believers but this is the first one where he addresses them. Yeah, are you Hello Lavina

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

Oh, you believe

00:08:42--> 00:08:50

and here we are remember the famous saying of Abdullah and Massoud are the Allahu Allah when a man came to him.

00:08:51--> 00:08:57

So Abdullah said to him, if you hear Yeah, you Halina Avenue,

00:08:58--> 00:09:13

listen to it very carefully give it your full ears your full attention, because it is going to be some good that Allah is commanding, or some evil or harm that he is prohibiting. Yeah, Johan Levine,

00:09:14--> 00:09:46

as opposed to here you have Ness, he is addressing the believers and those who have believed. So look at most of those ideas, you will find it is some kind of a command or a prohibition. Allah is addressing the believers as opposed to when he addresses humanity at large. Yeah, you have nurse here yeah, you have levena Manu, listen to it, and do your best to abide by what Allah subhanaw taala commanded or prohibited.

00:09:47--> 00:09:51

So he says, Learn Taku Kreiner

00:09:53--> 00:09:58

the connection and I will say more about this in sha Allah a little bit later.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

The

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

connection with the previous idea on a superficial level is to say it has something to do with the juice, right?

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

It's still talking about by the study and what Allah was telling us about that idea

00:10:18--> 00:10:40

and all that it mentioned about magic and the demons and so on. And now this is also connected to the Jews, but it is connected in other ways as well. So he says you're Latina and then later who Reiner do not say Raveena what is right now anybody know that? This is

00:10:43--> 00:10:46

maybe some of the sisters know the answer

00:10:49--> 00:10:50

Karina

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

people who speak Arabic

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

rah

00:10:59--> 00:11:00

rah era

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

and the right

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

okay.

00:11:05--> 00:11:15

Raha Allah right we see it. We still say it in the modern Arabic is one raka Allah, meaning May Allah

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

protect you, right?

00:11:19--> 00:11:22

Look after you. Yes, it comes from rehire.

00:11:25--> 00:11:34

And you hear so especially in Malaysia, you should know. rather sorry I'm singling you out. There are others as well.

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

What is right yet, isn't it?

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

Isn't it about

00:11:43--> 00:11:48

people? Well, people but in Arabic You say

00:11:49--> 00:11:52

though those who are to be taken care of.

00:11:53--> 00:12:05

Yeah, fun. Right. Exactly. Right. So this is the word that we are dealing with now. Right now. Okay, comes from Rory around the

00:12:06--> 00:12:21

caretaking. Right. And that's why our right, the sheep herder is a caretaker. He's taking care of his herd and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us in compared right,

00:12:23--> 00:12:48

that we are all somehow some type of caretaker and we are responsible for those under our tutelage. Right? Be it a family, right children, a wife, and so on. You are a caretaker, everyone has a caretaker and they are responsible for those under their care. So this is the word is coming from that right now.

00:12:49--> 00:12:51

So apparently,

00:12:52--> 00:12:58

the Muslims used to address the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam by saying right now.

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

And apparently, they were asking him to look at them with care.

00:13:09--> 00:13:15

And the context of it is that when they were being taught by Him,

00:13:16--> 00:13:26

at times, maybe they felt that they needed a little bit more time to understand. So they're essentially telling the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

give us some time

00:13:33--> 00:13:38

look at us with some care, we need a little bit more time to understand.

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

In even in the slang

00:13:44--> 00:13:49

for those who speak Arabic, when you say to a seller Raveena

00:13:52--> 00:14:28

take care of us meaning reducing the price you're negotiating, you know, take care of us meaning, you know, give it to me at a better price. Okay, so here's why not they would say right now, in that context in the context of his teaching, okay. Maybe they felt that they wanted him to slow down or something of that sort. So they would say or Arina Okay. Another possibility is that they would, they would be saying that meaning we are going to listen to you.

00:14:29--> 00:14:30

Because

00:14:31--> 00:14:52

raw you to raw in Arabic, as Illuminati mentions has two main meanings. One which is this caretaking that we just mentioned, the other one when you say some mac or Samak Give me your full attention you're hearing

00:14:53--> 00:14:58

a lot of in this rude what he said to that man? He said he has some of you here yeah

00:15:01--> 00:15:12

Give it your full ear your full attention. Okay? So it has the meaning of listening. So if they're saying right now,

00:15:13--> 00:15:23

it means this, this was the opinion of some of the facility and from the Sahaba and Natalia at it means we will listen to you.

00:15:25--> 00:15:30

And you listen to us, because it's mutual, right?

00:15:32--> 00:16:06

You listen, or we listen to you, and you listen to us. And this is one of the reasons some of the sitting said that it was prohibited, because you should listen to him and what he's saying and understand it. Regardless of what you are going to say back, you are not going to say back or you are not going to reply, you aren't listening to him, it's not mutual. You listen to him, he doesn't have to listen to you. So do not say right now. And this is why you'll see in the alternative,

00:16:07--> 00:16:15

they are not saying we are going to or you are going to listen to us. Okay. Right now.

00:16:18--> 00:16:23

There is an authentic reason of revelation for this as a sub Newzoo.

00:16:24--> 00:16:26

And that is that

00:16:28--> 00:16:35

some of the meaning would say this, and some of the facilities of the Sahaba and tabula in said that this was

00:16:36--> 00:16:42

a word that they used to use in their dialect, okay, the answer would use it Raveena.

00:16:44--> 00:16:45

So they would use that word.

00:16:46--> 00:17:01

And then the Jews started saying the same thing to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, they would say Raveena. And they were happy to use that word, because in their language, it is an insult.

00:17:03--> 00:17:09

So they will also stare at started saying, right, and they were mocking, and they were laughing.

00:17:12--> 00:17:18

So Allah subhanaw taala revealed this Aya telling the believers do not say Right?

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

In this reason of Revelation, we see that the one who copied the other,

00:17:28--> 00:17:42

or the Jews, the Jews copied and imitated the believers and this was expedient for them because it was their chance to insult the Prophet sallallahu Sallam without the believers. Knowing that and understanding that.

00:17:46--> 00:17:48

In other narrations, you see the opposite.

00:17:49--> 00:18:03

The Jews are using this word right now. And the believers thought that it is kind of a term of respect. So they started saying Ryan as well, but the Jews were saying it for an ulterior motive.

00:18:04--> 00:18:13

In Hebrew, the Hebrew of today, the word raw or raw means bad, something bad.

00:18:14--> 00:18:24

So it is clear it is the same. Even the language sometimes develops over time, right? But until today, and yes, you can check it.

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

Okay.

00:18:28--> 00:18:35

Until today, this is what it means raw or raw means bad, something bad in Hebrew.

00:18:36--> 00:18:47

So this was something that they enjoyed. We know that this is something that they used to do because they could not come out and say it

00:18:48--> 00:18:53

directly to his face. Salalah Malema himself. So they would do these things.

00:18:55--> 00:19:02

They would hide behind these kinds of words. Similarly with a semi lick.

00:19:03--> 00:19:10

Again, they're pretending to say a serif while they come they're actually saying a servile Aiken

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

death be upon you. And we mentioned this before and how say the Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu got very angry.

00:19:21--> 00:19:26

So similarly here, they're hiding behind this word right now.

00:19:28--> 00:19:33

As if to insulted mark, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Of course.

00:19:35--> 00:19:45

There's another meaning for another root for this word in Arabic, which is Rana Orion Runa

00:19:47--> 00:19:54

which means ignorance and impropriety and rudeness. Aruna.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

They would say right now

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

There is a recitation.

00:20:04--> 00:20:14

But it is not mutawatir okay, it is from a karate Shuddha the recitation of urban Hyson and AlHassan bacillary.

00:20:16--> 00:20:23

They would read it as letter Gu RA and then with a 10 win,

00:20:24--> 00:20:38

meaning letter Kulu, how to learn RA in and don't say something that is improper or rude. Learn to Hulu right now.

00:20:41--> 00:20:45

In all of this, we were just concentrating on the prohibition.

00:20:46--> 00:20:49

What did Allah prohibit? Don't say right now,

00:20:50--> 00:20:52

again, you might say, it's just the term.

00:20:54--> 00:21:07

What's the harm? Is it so bad? Yes, it is, for several reasons that we will see. And the first and most important reason is that it is

00:21:08--> 00:21:16

an address to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, with whom you have to show the utmost respect

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

you as believers.

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

And as we will see,

00:21:23--> 00:21:28

it should be an action that others don't take advantage of either.

00:21:29--> 00:21:45

Loretta, who right now, but as usual, Allah subhanaw taala never prohibits anything without giving us the alternative. If only we would take the lesson in our title via discipline of our children don't do that.

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

Okay, it's fine.

00:21:49--> 00:22:02

Is there something else they can do? Can you give them an alternative? This is Hala. Okay, what's the halal alternative? There is? No, no, of course, there's always an alternative Allah prohibits. And then he gives you the halal alternative.

00:22:05--> 00:22:12

Here, later, Hulu Reiner. Okay. We're Kulu, Lorna, Lorna.

00:22:14--> 00:22:16

Lorna, what does that mean?

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

northerner

00:22:26--> 00:22:29

again, it could mean hear

00:22:32--> 00:22:36

something similar to Raveena. Look at us with care.

00:22:40--> 00:22:42

Take care of us. Right.

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

And it could mean also

00:22:46--> 00:23:02

another meaning based on another idea which is in Taverna wait for us, give us some time. Can you slow down a little bit more now? Okay, let the Hulu or Hulu more now. So this is the

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

alternative.

00:23:06--> 00:23:17

And it has essentially the same meaning. And now what did you do? You didn't allow the Jews to take advantage of the situation.

00:23:19--> 00:23:32

And this is ultimately what Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us in this area. First of all, show the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the utmost respect, then

00:23:33--> 00:23:44

act in a way that you ensure that others respect him as well. So that they do not take advantage of it. If we say

00:23:45--> 00:23:57

that the ones who imitated are the Jews, meaning the Muslims were using this word, and then the Jews started using it, because they took advantage of the situation.

00:23:58--> 00:24:03

Then this is where the scholars talked about how this

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

is a fundamental

00:24:07--> 00:24:16

error as evidence for the fundamental rule of ozone and filk. Known as said if

00:24:19--> 00:24:20

you've heard of said that

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

the rule about averting

00:24:25--> 00:24:28

and or preventing evil?

00:24:30--> 00:24:39

Well, yes, of course we want to prevent evil. No, there's more. The rule says even if something is permissible,

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

but it may lead

00:24:44--> 00:24:48

to something which is impermissible that you want to try to avert

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

then using that rule, we will try to avoid even that which is permissible because it's going to lead to that which is impermissible. This is said the dryer

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

The Maliki's gave a lot of importance to this rule and this area is one of those examples. Hyena is a nice word.

00:25:12--> 00:25:18

It's a nice meaning. It's permissible. This is the way they used to address the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:25:20--> 00:25:36

But because of what it led to, because of the way the Jews were taking advantage of it, so he said Lanta Khurana, don't say it, because it is now being taken advantage of.

00:25:37--> 00:25:39

So in order to avert that evil,

00:25:41--> 00:25:47

and here, in this case, the evil that the enemies of Allah are trying to

00:25:50--> 00:26:02

show or treat the Muslims with and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam especially. And it is mind boggling Subhan Allah, that this is in a time

00:26:03--> 00:26:06

where you may think,

00:26:07--> 00:26:14

isn't really that important, what I say and what I don't say, it's not like they had social media,

00:26:16--> 00:26:38

or all kinds of news stations that are able to broadcast this news in one second all across the world. At that time, where there weren't the CNN and the BBC is in the jersey eras. And now some social media is faster than all of those still

00:26:39--> 00:26:40

don't see this.

00:26:42--> 00:26:49

Because they will take advantage of it. And because this news will eventually spread as well.

00:26:51--> 00:27:10

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that is being mocked. So he said later, Kulu Reiner, this is why when we think it's just a word, yes, but number one, it's talking about the prophets of salaam number two, so much evil will result from this.

00:27:12--> 00:27:16

And this teaches us something very important, my brothers and sisters.

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

And that is that

00:27:19--> 00:27:30

when we talk about terminology today, terminology is critically important. Don't you agree? Especially in the age of media,

00:27:31--> 00:27:36

it's all about the terminology. It's all about these terms.

00:27:38--> 00:27:48

Right now, we as Muslims as an ummah, we battle Allah of terms that are being used in the war against Islam.

00:27:51--> 00:27:57

So nowadays, all jihad is essentially terrorism, terminology.

00:27:59--> 00:28:05

Homosexuality, we don't hear this word anymore, because it's all been normalized.

00:28:07--> 00:28:09

And the,

00:28:10--> 00:28:14

the way to do it is to use euphemisms.

00:28:15--> 00:28:17

You've heard of euphemisms.

00:28:18--> 00:28:26

So the enemies of Islam in their wars on Islam, they will play around with these terms.

00:28:27--> 00:28:35

The Jews were playing around with the word dry now. And now we're seeing a very sophisticated playing around with the terms

00:28:37--> 00:28:46

in order to make the Muslims always be in the bad light to distort their image. So you take

00:28:47--> 00:28:48

a really

00:28:50--> 00:28:52

repulsive term.

00:28:53--> 00:29:05

And you give it a nice ring to it. This is called the euphemism. So something like as repulsive as homosexuality, and then you say, No, this is diversity.

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

For the longest time, they would call

00:29:10--> 00:29:19

homosexuals, gays, right? They would say they are gay. Gay is a nice word. Because gay means happy.

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

So you're

00:29:24--> 00:29:39

playing around with the terms. So you take some very repulsive terms, and you make them nice and acceptable and palatable. Riba usually, this isn't the Bible itself not only in the Quran

00:29:41--> 00:29:45

you don't hear usually anymore interest.

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

It's a nice word interest. Interesting. You get some, you get some something interesting as well. You get something back. Usually. Reba, you take all

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

is repulsive terms that are meant to be repulsive. And then you play around with them,

00:30:08--> 00:30:11

the opposite is true, you take a nice turn, right?

00:30:13--> 00:30:15

Which they took advantage of,

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

you take nice words and nice terms and you now may You make them repulsive. So, in this way, you will distort the image of those that you are trying to harm,

00:30:31--> 00:30:33

namely, the Muslims

00:30:34--> 00:30:45

take something that is nice, that is acceptable, that is in line with the fitrah. And give it a really repulsive name.

00:30:46--> 00:30:50

Terminology, it's a war of terminology.

00:30:51--> 00:31:07

We understand this and benefit this in the modern context from this iron lady to Hulu. Hi, now, the Hulu gonna be careful with your terminology. And a lot of times, they'll try to put you on the spot on a term.

00:31:08--> 00:31:11

What do you say about this? What does this mean to you?

00:31:12--> 00:31:16

Subhanallah as if we are in the, you know,

00:31:18--> 00:31:29

basically, we are on the spot, you know, we're in the spotlight, and anything you say will be used against you and against the whole Ummah, what do you say about this?

00:31:31--> 00:31:43

idea, this concept, this term, it's all about the terminology. You don't like the term, you say it very clearly. I don't agree with this term, because of 123.

00:31:45--> 00:31:48

Because you are using this term to mean this.

00:31:49--> 00:31:58

When you talk about slavery in Islam, once you hear the word slavery, this is repulsive, right? to the nth degree.

00:32:00--> 00:32:11

But when you read about the history of slavery, the Eurocentric history of slavery, and you look at slavery in Islam, they're like two different worlds.

00:32:13--> 00:32:16

So when they tell you Oh, Islam condones slavery,

00:32:17--> 00:32:19

the slavery in their mind is

00:32:20--> 00:32:35

that slavery, right? African Americans, blacks from Africa being transported by ship being whipped, you know, on the ship, this is slavery to them. Slavery in Islam is different.

00:32:36--> 00:32:47

So, let me explain to you first, let's deconstruct the term you have to deconstruct so much of the terminology now.

00:32:49--> 00:32:51

Let the Kulu rhina. What

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

was now

00:32:56--> 00:33:41

all of this we understand in our modern context from this idea, Loretta pool arena, and there are many other examples and the the, the media is very talented at making up terms and using those terms, in order to corner you in a certain way. And to in order to portray whatever they want to portray in the way that they do. If you look at the the Palestine, Israel, let's call it the the occupation of Israel against Palestine. That whole issue is full of euphemisms from A to Z.

00:33:42--> 00:33:44

That's what the media does.

00:33:45--> 00:33:49

So do not underestimate

00:33:50--> 00:34:01

the power of terms and terminology. That Hulu right now, don't use that term. We're cool No.

00:34:02--> 00:34:03

We're smart.

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

We're cool. I'm gonna we explain this with smile and listen and hear

00:34:12--> 00:34:22

meaning, listen to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and obey the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam in what he is telling you and teaching you. So you are saying to him on board now.

00:34:23--> 00:34:25

Look at us, give us attention.

00:34:28--> 00:34:29

With smile,

00:34:30--> 00:34:37

follow here, LISTEN and OBEY Apollo Verna was now when you will carefully Rena

00:34:38--> 00:34:45

Elene and for the caffeine is a painful punishment. Subhanallah

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

where did this come from?

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

Let the pool right now hold on Lorna was Morrow. Why do you care for each other when Aleem and Catherine? Yes, the Jews will have a pain

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

punishment for their mockery of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the mockery of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:35:09--> 00:35:10

is outright Kufa

00:35:12--> 00:35:39

as we know, well in Katharina Are there any of course, when the Muslims are saying it, this is not what they intend by it. But Allah subhanaw taala is saying, they will have a painful punishment for what they are saying, and therefore, be not like them. And this is another important message from the AI. Do not imitate the Jews

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

have your own identity.

00:35:45--> 00:35:48

You should distinguish yourself

00:35:49--> 00:36:06

later Khurana if they say it, don't say it, don't imitate. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us very clearly, the authentic hadith that whoever copies or imitates people is one of them. Well, they will care for either either one.

00:36:07--> 00:36:13

What how much time do we have brother can we do the next day? Let's just do the next idea quickly.

00:36:17--> 00:36:37

Wanted caffeine or other elements. So this is the now connecting the idea to that which is before notice in the friend the previous idea Allah azza wa jal was talking about how the Jews imitated and went after what the demons taught, went after magic.

00:36:38--> 00:36:40

This area later Pulu Reiner

00:36:42--> 00:36:46

is another example of exposing the Jews.

00:36:47--> 00:36:49

Just like he exposed them in that higher

00:36:51--> 00:37:07

heat expose them for what they were learning, and how they replaced the book of Allah azza wa jal with the evil and the magic that they were learning and teaching. Here again, Allah azza wa jal is exposing the Jews.

00:37:08--> 00:37:17

These exposing them for using this term Lata who will Raveena Yes, he's doing it in a way through

00:37:18--> 00:37:31

prohibiting this to the believers, he's disciplining the believers, but he's also exposing the Jews, because the Muslims did not know this. The prophets or someone did not know that they are using it this way.

00:37:32--> 00:37:47

As opposed to a samurai lake where he knew and he said, What are they equal? But here, Allah azza wa jal is the one who expose them. They are using this as mockery. And this is why,

00:37:48--> 00:37:55

in some of the narrations, it was one of the Sahaba who knew some Hebrew

00:37:56--> 00:37:58

who understood what they were saying.

00:37:59--> 00:38:00

He heard the Rhine

00:38:02--> 00:38:10

and he understood that they were working in an insulting so he said to the Wallah, here, if you say this, I am going to do this and this to you.

00:38:11--> 00:38:22

So then they said, You are the ones who say it, the Muslims say right now all the time. So Allah azza wa jal revealed the idea as well this is another

00:38:23--> 00:38:26

possibility with Allah Allah. So

00:38:27--> 00:39:13

this area is exposing them. And thus, it is connected to the idea before as well. In the next area, Maria Magdalena Kapha woman added Kitabi whether Bucha keen, a Unicenter Are they coming hiring rhombic? Again, along the same lines, what is their problem with you? What is the do's problem with the Muslims, this precisely this, that they envy you? They envy the fact that the final prophet is from your ummah, and was not from them. This is all it's about. And we saw some ideas before that mentioned this as well.

00:39:14--> 00:39:20

It's all about this hasn't. Why was the final prophet from the Arabs

00:39:22--> 00:39:52

otherwise they would have followed. Otherwise, a lot of what they see and read in Islam is very similar to what they have. It's confirming what they have. So why would they go against it? It's this hazard. How come Allah gave them all of that? How come Allah azza wa jal was merciful upon them brought the new boo the profit it to them?

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

And this is why he used the word Yeah. What do you what do they do not like? They're

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

Not happy.

00:40:02--> 00:40:08

Who is not happy those who disbelieve Latina Cafaro mean nil keytab

00:40:10--> 00:40:11

when we should again

00:40:14--> 00:40:19

so now we have two types of disbelievers and Al Kitab.

00:40:20--> 00:40:21

When we should be keen,

00:40:23--> 00:40:28

but I thought some of Al Kitab are believers.

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

Yes, no.

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

Yeah, there really? No, I think he just said yes or no

00:40:41--> 00:40:42

animals.

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

Okay.

00:40:47--> 00:40:53

So, if someone says Lavina Cafaro Maria de la vena cava Rahman Al Kitab.

00:40:55--> 00:40:57

Those who disbelieve of Al Kitab.

00:40:59--> 00:41:02

So does that mean there are those who believe

00:41:05--> 00:41:06

the Muslims also

00:41:09--> 00:41:49

know when we say Al Kitab al Kitab is the reference to the Jews and the Christians right now, Maria would do Lavina Kapha rumen and Al Kitab. Similar to the idea of Surah Bina in the Latina Cafaro mean a halal kita be one who should be keen? Again, alakija would wish to keep this Ella vena cava room does not mean Be careful that some of Allah kita believe and some disbelief, no. They are all considered this believers, because they did not follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:41:51--> 00:42:01

previously before is another issue, right? It's a different issue. If they believed genuinely in what their prophet taught.

00:42:02--> 00:42:12

They did not corrupt his teachings. Those are the believers. And this is what we mentioned, we did a whole lot of scene for that one area, right in Alladhina amanu, Valentina, Hayden,

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

famous iron, and there's a lot of misunderstanding on that either. But this is essentially what it means. Now now our do Latina aka foreign Latina Cafaro mean Nikita when we are looking so those who disbelieve of Al Kitab the emphasis is on Alladhina Kapha those who disbelieve Allah subhanaw taala is trying to say that the reason for this is that they disbelieve

00:42:44--> 00:42:48

they are a for those who disbelief whether they are from Al Kitab.

00:42:49--> 00:42:50

Or they are from

00:42:52--> 00:42:56

a wish to keep the Arab pagans

00:42:58--> 00:43:12

does that mean that they are equal? No, I haven't keytab are better than and what should I keep? And this is why from a legislative point of view, yes. The Quran gives them a certain

00:43:15--> 00:43:28

status. Right puts them on a pedestal above the machine making the machine again our idol worshippers al Kitab have a genuine book.

00:43:30--> 00:43:35

And before it was corrupted a monotheistic religion

00:43:38--> 00:43:53

but they corrupted it. Right. So and that's why legislatively, we can eat their their back what they slaughter. And according to many scholars, we can marry their women as well. Right?

00:43:55--> 00:43:56

With certain conditions.

00:43:57--> 00:43:58

It's really because

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

we just need to make a general feeling that theta is

00:44:08--> 00:44:09

good today.

00:44:11--> 00:44:16

You'll still be finding s also is really much.

00:44:17--> 00:44:41

Of course, they are disbelievers and the idea is clear. Now Yeah, what the Lavina Cafaro mean Anil Kitab they are disbelievers, big and ultimately, this is because after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent, all of it will be accepted. is Islam. Following the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam Of course, absolutely.

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

I've been going back

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

and forth.

00:44:48--> 00:45:00

Okay, oh, they might use all the photos and their time as their time if they followed that profit. They are 100%

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

want Muslims and believers that will be in paradise? Of course, that's the whole idea. That's the whole concept. Allah sent prophets and messengers, right? And each people is to believe in that prophet, and there is no contradiction. All of those prophets and messengers essentially came with the same identical message.

00:45:27--> 00:45:46

The differences are minor, and they are in the Sharia, not in the Arcada, not in the Eman. So no prophet came and said, worship other than Allah, or worship Jesus peace be upon him or Mary, or anyone else, or the Trinity?

00:45:47--> 00:45:52

Or that God is the God of Israel alone, or anything of the sort.

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

They all taught the same essential message worshipped none other than Allah. So the people who follow that Prophet and did not corrupt, they are Muslims. The followers of Nahalat, salaam are Muslims. The followers of Rahim, the followers of Musa and Isa, they are Muslims. They are submitters. Absolutely. But now, of course, you have to go for the final Testament, the Old Testament, the New Testament and the final customer, this is the Quran, right? And the final and seen of the messengers, the prophets also, of course, so may our doula Dina cover in Kitabi. Well, who should the kin Allah is saying, neither Nikita, nor an Bucha the kin

00:46:47--> 00:47:02

are happy. And newness Zara Alikum in hiring Milan become that good will come down to you from your Lord. And this is a reference to the Wahoo to the revelation.

00:47:03--> 00:47:17

A Unison Alikum mean hiring Mira become Norris also he says a Unison I mean hired, not an iota of good. They don't want an iota of good to come to you.

00:47:19--> 00:47:24

And that's why then he says Wallah who does so be rahmati me.

00:47:26--> 00:47:37

Allah subhanaw taala selects for his Rama for His mercy, whomever he wills and Rama here, according to many is prophethood

00:47:38--> 00:47:54

so they are not happy, neither and then Kitab nor the pagans that it came to you that the Prophet SAW Selim is from you the final message, the Quran, all of that came to you.

00:47:55--> 00:47:56

They're not happy.

00:47:57--> 00:48:04

But what is it to them? This is the Mercy of Allah. He sends it down upon whomever he wills

00:48:06--> 00:48:11

the Arabs in the audience probably have heard the famous Arabic adage

00:48:14--> 00:48:53

love Rojava Allah, Ramat Allah Denzel Ali. He didn't show mercy to that person, nor did he allow the mercy of Allah to come to him. Of course, this is one should be careful about saying this. Because if Allah wants to have mercy upon you, no one can stop it. Right? But the meaning is that not only did they not do good to that person, but they try stopping any good from reaching that person. Right. It's like, well as to have Munna Allah Amin Miskin. So

00:48:54--> 00:49:01

you're not helping, and you don't want to help you don't want others to help either way and now and now.

00:49:02--> 00:49:10

They are preventing others from helping as well. So now, this is not your privilege. This is not your prerogative.

00:49:12--> 00:49:18

What's it to you? Hola, sanzu Aman whomever he was, you cannot stop the Mercy of Allah from coming.

00:49:20--> 00:49:51

Maria what do they don't like it? That good will come to you from your Lord. And this may be general as well. Wallah we are assuming Samira Ahmed TV share. What's it to you? Allah will send down His mercy upon whomever He wills. Allah who will * Nila Helene, Allah subhanaw taala is the one of Great Bounty. He gives whomever he wills whenever he wills. No one can stop it and no one can prevent it.

00:49:54--> 00:49:55

But this idea as well

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

is an important reminder and

00:50:00--> 00:50:18

The Quran is full of this. The Quran always warns the Muslims, beware of your enemies. Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us what our enemies think, what our enemies

00:50:19--> 00:50:20

desire.

00:50:21--> 00:50:24

They don't want any good to come to you.

00:50:26--> 00:50:31

Does that necessarily mean that every single one of them is like that?

00:50:34--> 00:50:37

Not necessarily. There may be exceptions.

00:50:39--> 00:50:56

There may be exceptions, but Allah subhanaw taala is telling us about the general rule. Now you want to live in a Kaffir Roman Catholic Kitab, one of the most shocking and here notice he mentioned al Kitab. So he's not only talking about the Jews, Jews and the Christians

00:50:58--> 00:51:00

are humans that are like hiring Arabic.

00:51:02--> 00:51:03

So

00:51:04--> 00:51:30

this is something to be careful of as well. Just as the Quran is disciplining us and teaching us to understand the plotting of the enemies of Islam. In the same way, we need to do our research and understand who our enemies are, and what their plots are, so that the Zuma can rise

00:51:32--> 00:51:42

to the civilizational status, that it deserves Allah Allah Allah Allah, wa sallahu wa Salam o Barak Nabina Muhammad

00:51:52--> 00:51:53

I want to know the

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

difference

00:52:02--> 00:52:06

the Shia differences between Sunni and Shia, no, no.

00:52:08--> 00:52:09

The Quran

00:52:10--> 00:52:18

the Quran of the Shia technically the Quran is in the Quran. We don't have different Quran the Quran is one

00:52:19--> 00:52:20

the Quran is one Be careful.

00:52:21--> 00:52:44

As much as the enemies of Islam and this is really weird like to say all the Quran there are many different versions just like the Bible. Baloney. The Quran has one. Even the main split between the Sun the Sunni and the Shia. The Shia do not have a different Quran is the same Quran.

00:52:45--> 00:52:45

Okay.

00:52:47--> 00:52:49

Having said that, however,

00:52:50--> 00:53:01

they will have certain claims, yes, they will have certain claims, okay. Just fabrications about the Quran

00:53:02--> 00:53:04

that maybe there was an idea

00:53:06--> 00:53:39

that wasn't there or was removed or something like that. They will have some of those claims which are complete fabrications. It is not to say that there is a different Quran, it is the same Quran, Allah azza wa jal is the one who made it incumbent upon himself to protect it, it is protected, but they they claim as fabrications, that oh, there was an IRA, right, that gave the earlier of the Allah on a special status or something like that.

00:53:40--> 00:53:45

Otherwise, no, just one Quran as for false interpretation,

00:53:46--> 00:53:52

and if Well, our heritage, they interpret all kinds of things

00:53:53--> 00:54:02

in the verses of the Quran, but not to say that there is a difference Quran no, there is only one Quran by the protection of Allah, Allah Allah.

00:54:05--> 00:54:05

Yes.

00:54:10--> 00:54:21

I have the question related to this understanding of it just because I found out that in Malaysia, some of the scholars they have a different interpretation of what we have in Europe, for example.

00:54:23--> 00:54:25

What I heard is basically that they say,

00:54:27--> 00:54:31

Christians and Jews, they are not adding any more.

00:54:33--> 00:54:40

They do not follow the Old Testament. And also they say, That was a weird one. I heard that they said

00:54:43--> 00:54:48

he said he was apparently very removed, speaking person.

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

Only Islamist for all of the world and this message of peace around was only for his people and whatnot. Okay, there's a couple of times that I had some dialogue

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

with them. And then of course they explain now in Germany, Denmark, and most of them the ACS smells fishy, right? How do you deal with them with a person who says I'm Christian? On Sunday? He goes to church, the slotless is medieval some of them, the women have a headscarf. How would you even even if they don't do that brother, they're still considered al Kitab. Allahu Allah. Allah knew that they are going to corrupt and they are going to change things.

00:55:33--> 00:55:44

Allah azza wa jal said in the Quran, lapad caffarel, Medina, Carlu in Allah thoroughly through salah, those who say that Allah is one of three, or kuffaar.

00:55:45--> 00:56:35

The doctrine of Christians today is mainly the Trinity. Right? So they are confirmed this is clear cut, there's nothing to be said here. And they are annual kita because they were they are a people of the book because yes, they believe in a prophet who came with a book, this is how they are different from the pagans. So the fact that to say, oh, in the past that I Nikita almost as if they want to say and Kitab are the ones who believed in Risa properly. Allah, He said, I know those who are Muslims, those who were Muslims, they were submitters. And Al Kitab refers to the ones who corrupted at the time of the Prophet I was held up, they didn't believe in the Trinity, they didn't

00:56:35--> 00:56:39

corrupt, and they are still al Kitab. And they are called Al Kitab.

00:56:40--> 00:56:42

I said, actually, right.

00:56:44--> 00:56:49

Now, we already have a similar version of Christianity, wouldn't we have

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

the Jews?

00:56:52--> 00:56:55
