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

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu lillah

00:00:05--> 00:00:45

wa salatu salam ala Sayidina imam in our Habibi in a bit of passing Mohamed dibny Abdullah wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Sahbihi Norman tebbit, Gambia Sunday de la de to Panatela. Milena and Amanda Tana in Tel Aviv and Hakeem rubbished roughly Saudi us in the emery that Emily said near for holy I pray to 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. I mean, glory be to you Oh Allah, no knowledge of we accept that what you have taught us Indeed you are the All Knowing the Allies My dear brothers and sisters.

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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. I hope everybody is doing well.

00:00:53--> 00:01:08

We continue with the Tafseer of Surah Al Baqarah. And we got to the following If Allah subhanaw taala says about our learning chef, Jim Smilla Rahmanir Rahim while he will heal machinery, who will not worry but

00:01:09--> 00:01:15

while he will heal machinery who will reboot a NEMA two well loofa

00:01:17--> 00:01:24

law in law her was here on Aleem.

00:01:25--> 00:01:50

This idea comes after the idea where Allah subhanaw taala told us that the worst of people and the most unjust are those who prevent the name of Allah subhanaw taala from being mentioned in his masajid and they seek to destroy it. And we spoke about that idea in detail.

00:01:51--> 00:02:12

And now the next area, Allah subhanaw taala says that to Allah belongs the east and the west where the learning machinery who will marry for a nama to Alou for him, Allah so wherever you turn, there is the face of Allah.

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

This

00:02:16--> 00:02:19

is clearly related to the issue of the Qibla.

00:02:22--> 00:02:26

And some of our city might say even the year before

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

that they are related to the issue of the Qibla

00:02:30--> 00:02:43

at a time when Allah subhanaw taala was chastising those criminals for destroying the misogyny of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:44--> 00:02:56

even if there are no masajid left, the Muslim can worship Allah subhanaw taala anywhere because the prophets Allah Allah Allah wa sallam told us in the authentic hadith, that the whole earth is a masjid.

00:02:57--> 00:03:12

The stone on the Masada do you want, the whole earth is a masjid of you can worship Allah subhanaw taala but then we go one step further to say not only that, technically, turn wherever you will,

00:03:14--> 00:03:22

even if hypothetically, the enemies of Allah are not allowing you to face the Qibla pray to Allah.

00:03:23--> 00:03:35

wherever you turn, there is the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we'll see what that means. When Allah hint mashallah, who will never, he never too will look for some magical law.

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

There is an authentic reason of Revelation.

00:03:40--> 00:03:41

For this I am

00:03:42--> 00:03:46

on the authority of Ibn Abbas, probably Allah on Houma.

00:03:47--> 00:03:56

He tells us that the first thing that was abrogated of the Quran was the issue of the Qibla.

00:03:59--> 00:04:02

And that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

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

had migrated to Medina and he was ordered to face and Masjid Al Aqsa

00:04:12--> 00:04:17

when he was in Mecca, just a quick explanation. When he was in Mecca.

00:04:19--> 00:04:37

He would face as Majid Al Aqsa but because the Qibla is north so he can place the karma between him and the masjid outside and he loved to do so. Once he was in Medina, he can no longer do that. So he asked to face that Masjid soldiers north as opposed to South right.

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

So when Abbas is telling us when the prophets are selling them was in Medina, most of the inhabitants of Medina or a good portion of them were the Jews. So when the Prophet SAW Selim, prayed to Mercy the axon this was something that they were happy about. He faced that Masjid Al Aqsa as Allah commanded him.

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

For some 16 to 17 months, even Abbas doesn't mention exactly how many buddy says Build the ASHA Russia run. So over 10 months okay and other narrations mentioned some 16 or 17 months he was praying to Allah Mozilla in Medina.

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:22--> 00:05:51

after seeing that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam loved to pray to al Qaeda, and the prophets are seldom used to look to the heavens. And Allah knows that he would love to have the Kaaba, the people out there Brahim has his fibula. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed the verses which we will get to insha Allah that abrogated the Qibla and instead of praying to a masjid Aqsa, he would pray to Allah Masjid Al haram.

00:05:53--> 00:05:58

upon that, the Jews started making trouble.

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

So they started saying, what made them turn away from the Qibla that they had before. Now I love Hmong capability and political Alia.

00:06:11--> 00:06:44

Allah revealed the verses about that, by the NARA Takadanobaba Kaffee Santa that we see how you are looking up to the heavens, and that we are going to grant you this Qibla that you would love to have. And then later on, in reply to the Jews call Lilla Hill machinery to one more very say to them, to Allah belongs to Eastern the West. In other words, it's none of your business, which Qibla we turn to which Qibla we used to face at what color we're facing now?

00:06:45--> 00:07:08

What color says what color Wirkkala? Well, in the head machine, who will not read for a number two will look for some logical law. So he mentioned the idea that we're talking about now as well. Those ideas come a little bit later, as we'll see. But he mentioned this idea as well. Well in line machine one, but as a response to the Jews,

00:07:09--> 00:07:17

to Allah belongs the Eastern the West, wherever you turn to, there is different faiths of Allah or the countenance of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:07:20--> 00:07:23

Furthermore, even Homer,

00:07:24--> 00:07:25

probably Allah on Houma,

00:07:27--> 00:07:48

used to pray on his Rahila on his animal, wherever it faced, he used to pray. And it seems wallow Island this was a nephila. This was the Sunnah it wasn't the Fariba that he would do. And he said, This is what I saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do

00:07:49--> 00:07:55

pray the nephila on his animal wherever it went in whatever direction it was.

00:07:57--> 00:08:00

And that this was his interpretation of this is

00:08:03--> 00:08:07

when Allah Hill Machina, who will method to a loofa word hula.

00:08:09--> 00:08:19

Another narration mentions this story of Ibn Ahmad. But it says that for that reason, the idea was revealed.

00:08:20--> 00:08:32

That that's so in other words, that was set up new Zune, but that narration Allah Allah was weak. So we will say it's an interpretation. It's an interpretation of this idea.

00:08:34--> 00:08:38

This means and this is part of the fix that we benefit from the idea

00:08:40--> 00:08:45

that when you pray, the nav fina, if it is not the theory,

00:08:47--> 00:08:59

and you are in some mode of transport, and obviously we have more advanced modes of transport now, unless you know, some people may still ride the older forms of transport.

00:09:02--> 00:09:05

If you are, and if you are traveling,

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

you can pray the nephila Wherever direction you don't have to face the table.

00:09:11--> 00:09:35

This is what we benefit from this narration and from this idea, because the idea is clearly showing to us that the issue is quite flexible. The issue of the Qibla is quite flexible, albeit and even though it is one of the conditions for the correctness of Salah right that we have to face the Qibla.

00:09:38--> 00:09:47

In the case of nephila No issues, in the car on the plane, on an animal on the train,

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

it could be in any direction.

00:09:52--> 00:09:53

In the case of free law.

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

It is best of course to face the Qibla if possible. If you cannot for whatever

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

Reason and

00:10:02--> 00:10:22

I think a lot of us have experienced how difficult it can be sometimes on a plane, prayed. Don't miss the salah. Pray it even if it's sitting down and it's not in the direction of the Qibla for a number two, well look for some hula you tried, you could not for whatever reason, then there wouldn't be any other option. But

00:10:24--> 00:10:29

for the free one we try, right for the Nephilim It's okay. All right.

00:10:30--> 00:10:37

Fair enough, fair to a loofa ThermoWood hula, it is also said in a narration that is week

00:10:38--> 00:10:43

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Companions

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

prayed on a cloudy night.

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

And they were not able to ascertain the Qibla Exactly.

00:10:52--> 00:10:57

And when they woke up in the morning, they realized they prayed

00:10:59--> 00:11:07

not in the direction of the Qibla and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not say anything to them, and no one repeated their salah.

00:11:09--> 00:11:46

And it was based on this idea as well, when he learned his missionary who will marveling at number two, we'll look for some language hula. And this is why many scholars said, if a person does their best to try to ascertain the qibla, and they pray. And they realize later on, when the time for that Salah is over, that they were not facing the Qibla correctly. They don't have to repeat their salah, according to many scholars, and based on this idea as well. For a number two well, Lu for some virtual law, yes, further question.

00:11:51--> 00:11:55

Coming to that, Kavita, that, thank you. I'm coming to that.

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

So

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

in that situation, you wouldn't have to repeat your Salah because you try your best to face the Qibla. And based on this idea.

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

And yes, the idea is showing us that the issue of the Qibla is flexible.

00:12:21--> 00:12:47

And the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said in the authentic hadith, he said, What is between the East and the West? Is a Qibla. What does that mean? It means your Qibla is somewhere between East and West. Of course he's talking about Medina. Right? So in Medina, the Qibla is practically south, right? Yes, brothers and sisters south.

00:12:48--> 00:13:04

So what is in between East and West? Right? Technically, it would be the other way, West and East, right? If I'm facing south. So the problems are Selim is saying anything between these two is a Kembla. This is a Kembla.

00:13:05--> 00:13:27

And this is why many scholars said that actually when you are away from the kada, you are not trying to face the camera itself, you are just trying to direct yourself in the general direction of the Qibla. So there is no issue rather of the degrees and SubhanAllah.

00:13:28--> 00:14:05

They might destroy the masjid and rebuild it because it's 10 degrees off, or five degrees off, or something like this is number two, we'll move our joola Marble machine, okay, we're not going to be a cannula, you're going to measure it with a straight line on Google Earth and see that oh, we're not actually facing the cover. This is not the case. It is actually a lot more flexible in that way. Based on this, I am based on this hadith and the the scholars of Islam base their opinions on this for a number two a new Fatima which was

00:14:06--> 00:14:12

not that you're not facing the Qibla. But it might not be exact. That's not an issue.

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

Because wherever you face

00:14:17--> 00:14:22

you are facing Allah. There is the face of Allah to Allah for some virtual law.

00:14:26--> 00:14:29

But Tada, had a different opinion.

00:14:30--> 00:14:39

He said, It is not the abrogation of the Qibla. But rather, this is before the abrogation of the Qibla

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

and Allah subhanaw taala was telling the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the Sahaba

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

that the issue is quite flexible. wherever you turn, there's the face of Allah, almost as if it is a preparation for the abrogation of the Qibla

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

but it's not gonna be any issue, whether you face south or north.

00:15:06--> 00:15:41

Don't worry, wherever you face, there's the face of Allah, teaching the Muslims that in the end, the Qibla is more of an organizational concept for all the Muslims to direct themselves together in Jannah our prayer in a certain direction, but if you don't have it, exactly, that is no issue. And you definitely don't have to repeat your Salah. And you definitely don't have to destroy that masjid or masala and rebuild it, because it is a few degrees off here or there below Ireland.

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

Now

00:15:48--> 00:15:56

imagine and he This highlights the importance of the tip seal of the Sahaba antipyrine.

00:15:58--> 00:16:37

Imagine now someone comes to you, and wants to do his own Tafseer based on his own ideas and deliberation where he closes or she closes her eyes. And they tell you no, I think Allah means something else. For a number to look, for some knowledge will look wherever you turn, there is the face of Allah, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, all paths lead to Rome. all paths lead to Allah, wherever you turn your face, there is the face of Allah doesn't matter.

00:16:38--> 00:17:09

By Allah, can you not see people? Or have you heard someone doing Tafseer of this ayah in this way, for a number to Allah, Muslim, Christian Buddhist truth doesn't matter. There are so many roads to Allah, they tell you. So now if you want to go to anywhere, any destination, there will be many ways to take GPS will give you many ways. Exactly paradise is the same. There are many ways to

00:17:11--> 00:17:37

wherever you turn, there's the face of Allah. Can you imagine Muslims hearing this and having their blood boil? Thinking, what kind of series this Where did you get this from? And of course it doesn't make sense. But yes, you can see someone trying to say something like that, wherever you turn, and however, it doesn't matter. No, this is not the way we do have seen.

00:17:38--> 00:17:49

And this is why we go back to the tough scene of those who are most knowledgeable about the tough sin, the Sahaba and the Tabea. Probably Allah Allah gymea

00:17:50--> 00:18:09

and ASVAB and Newzoo the reasons of revelation and you start to understand you cannot just come here and come up with some rubbish and claim that this is your tip seen or this is what Allah subhanaw taala almost inspired to you are you a prophet after the seal of the prophets Allah in salatu salam

00:18:10--> 00:18:13

ala nama to aloo for ThermoWood hula

00:18:16--> 00:18:17

in this area,

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

Allah subhanaw taala mentions

00:18:22--> 00:18:29

the face of Allah innama to aloo for Santa virtual law. This could be confusing for some

00:18:32--> 00:18:42

first of all, let us understand the meaning of the tire. And what we get from it apart from what we have already mentioned.

00:18:43--> 00:18:53

For a minute well LUFA ThermoWood hula meaning what ever direction you face you are going to face ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala

00:18:54--> 00:19:07

because Allah subhanaw taala is not in a particular direction. He is not in the Qibla per se, such that if I faced the if I don't face the template that I'm not facing Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:09--> 00:19:18

The Quran mentions the feasts of Allah subhanaw taala many times. But all of the mention of the face of Allah in the Quran

00:19:20--> 00:19:22

is in a slightly different context

00:19:24--> 00:19:38

is in the context of doing things sincerely for the sake of Allah, for the face or the countenance of Allah subhanaw taala countenance is just a fancy word for face. Okay.

00:19:40--> 00:19:46

It's usually revolving around that meaning doing things for Allah's face,

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

sincerely for Allah subhanaw taala This is the only one that comes in a slightly different context and could be problematic because it says there is the face

00:20:00--> 00:20:11

Have Allah fatten, not so much. Some people might confuse stamina with Thumma femme there is the face of Allah notice not Allah on the face of Allah.

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

But if you look at the Sunnah,

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

the Sunnah

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

gives you many examples that are similar to this.

00:20:23--> 00:20:27

So the prophets Allah wa sallam told us in the authentic hadith,

00:20:28--> 00:20:30

that when you pray,

00:20:31--> 00:20:34

that you are facing Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that,

00:20:41--> 00:20:52

if Muslim praise, then Allah subhana wa Taala is between them and the Qibla. That of course scholars try to explain this hadith

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

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah is facing you.

00:21:01--> 00:21:04

When you pray, he said to people in our G.

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

The Bibles or send them told them in Abbas rhodiola, on Houma, for the life

00:21:11--> 00:21:14

of Allah due to

00:21:16--> 00:21:18

an in another narration, a man that

00:21:20--> 00:21:32

preserve the limits of Allah subhanaw taala Allah will preserve you preserve Allah, and you will find him in front of you.

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

Same idea.

00:21:37--> 00:21:50

In another Hadith of the Prophet sallahu wa salam that Allah subhanaw taala will face you, you mentioned his face, he will face you, he will face your face.

00:21:51--> 00:21:56

As long as you do not turn in your Salah you do not turn your head.

00:21:57--> 00:22:00

So the Sunnah is showing us the meaning.

00:22:02--> 00:22:03

That when we

00:22:05--> 00:22:10

face the tribler it's almost like we are facing Allah.

00:22:12--> 00:22:19

And that's why in the DUA have a list if we can understand it that way as well. Beautifully.

00:22:20--> 00:22:33

We say what we're just to what Jia Lin love the firepower, somehow it will out Hanifa I have directed my face to the one who has created the heavens and the earth.

00:22:34--> 00:22:52

So again, you are facing Allah, you are directing yourselves, you're directing yourself to Allah, and more specifically to Allah's face, you are facing Allah. This is the meaning of Fatima which Allah, wherever you turn,

00:22:53--> 00:22:58

for the sake of prayer, you will face ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala

00:22:59--> 00:23:06

clear now, this is the basic meaning. This is what we get from the idea.

00:23:08--> 00:23:22

But then we say, yes, some scholars understood this idea, as one of the ideas that talks about the face of Allah is one of his attributes.

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

For some knowledge, just like the others, some scholars said

00:23:31--> 00:24:04

that this is not one of the eight that is talking about the face as one of his SIFAT or one of his attributes. And we showed that it is different than the other ayat why? Because it's talking about the Qibla. And hence Imam Mujahid sent Fatima, Allah means there is the Kembla of ALLAH. So he interpreted it that way. Right. And of course,

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

the scholars of Islam who interpreted some of the attributes of Allah, the SIFAT of Allah, they interpreted the face of Allah as Allah Himself, that you are facing Allah. And this difference of opinion is quite well known.

00:24:25--> 00:24:59

Between the scholars of Islam, who took the position, that these attributes of Allah, whether it is the face of Allah, or the hands of Allah, or his neffs are so many other things, that all of these attributes they said, We confirm that Allah has has these attributes, but we do not in any way make him like any of his creatures. There is no anthropomorphism in Islam. We do not make a law like another human being down

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

Allah, but they confirm these attributes to Allah. And there are attributes that are befitting of His Majesty.

00:25:09--> 00:25:24

The scholars of Islam who did tell when they would interpret some of these SIFAT, as we just saw with the face, they would interpret, for instance, the hand or the hands, as his ability,

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

or his blessings. And this is a

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

very well known controversy that started very long time ago and it seems, will continue

00:25:39--> 00:25:41

until the day of judgment

00:25:43--> 00:26:18

for some of our joola but then that is the meaning, don't get bogged down in the controversy and is it the face of Allah? Or is it the Qibla of Allah? Or is it Allah Himself? When you read it, most Muslims, when you read it, you immediately get the understanding, especially if you do not engage in any anthropomorphism to Han Allah. You immediately think for him now which Allah there is the face of Allah. In other words you are facing Allah wherever you turn, you are facing Allah subhanahu wa taala

00:26:20--> 00:26:24

Allahu taala, Allah for Sama, which Allah

00:26:25--> 00:26:27

in Allah was.

00:26:28--> 00:26:35

Indeed Allah subhanaw taala is worse or worse. He is all encompassing.

00:26:36--> 00:27:14

And the relevance and the MUFA zero mentioned about the name of Allah and worship, that he is all encompassing in his mercy and his knowledge and his risk this provision His blessings, right in Allah was here on Halim and usually we'll find these two names together was there an Eileen? Eileen being the odd knowledgeable, so wherever you turn, there is the face of Allah. He is all encompassing and he is all knowledgeable.

00:27:16--> 00:27:21

Then Allah subhanaw taala says, we're calling the Allahu Allah.

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

Allah subhanaw taala now is singling out

00:27:28--> 00:27:48

those people for this crime. This is a crime that is being committed against Allah subhanaw taala we do not understand how egregious it is. So Allah azza wa jal is telling us and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us in the authentic hadith,

00:27:49--> 00:28:01

how evil it is to ascribe a child to Allah subhanho wa taala. The problem is, we've gotten used to it. We've gotten we've become numb.

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

We'll call you, Taha. Allahu Allah.

00:28:06--> 00:28:12

Allah subhanaw taala here doesn't comment on the egregiousness he does so in other ayat.

00:28:14--> 00:28:27

But he responds, but it's not a direct response, no need to respond directly. It's a ludicrous claim, to say that Allah subhanaw taala has taken a child.

00:28:29--> 00:28:49

So that's why he says, when enough is somewhat you will armed, rather To Him belongs, what is in the heavens and the earth? So everything belongs to Allah subhanaw taala. If everything is ownership of Allah subhanaw taala why on earth does he need a child?

00:28:53--> 00:28:56

And why on earth would he take a child

00:28:57--> 00:28:59

if everything belongs to him?

00:29:01--> 00:29:09

Who is Allah subhanaw taala talking about everyone who has called the child to Allah. Everyone mentioned in the verses before this verse,

00:29:10--> 00:29:12

we read about the hood.

00:29:13--> 00:29:14

We read about the Nosara

00:29:15--> 00:29:34

and possibly unusually keen on the pagans, the pagan Arabs. So, the Christians of course, the most famous one who claimed that Jesus peace be upon him was the son of Allah. The Jews claim that Rosa, Ezra is the son of Allah.

00:29:36--> 00:29:57

The pagan Arabs claimed that the angels were the daughters of Allah, tal Allah. Luna who won Kabira Welcome to has Allahu Allah. So the HANA Glory be to Him. Bella who Murthy somehow it will armed everything the heavens and the earth belongs to him

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

and therefore

00:30:01--> 00:30:04

Why on earth would he take a son? Are you sad a sunnah

00:30:05--> 00:30:12

is ownership of Allah, made by Allah, everything is made by Allah.

00:30:14--> 00:30:23

Hussein is made by Allah, the angels are made by Allah, they all belong to Allah subhanaw taala he owns them.

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

Why do you take a child?

00:30:29--> 00:30:34

And usually, if you have a child, it means you have a partner

00:30:36--> 00:30:43

who is Allah's partner? Allah, this crazy stuff you hear, but we're used to it.

00:30:45--> 00:31:01

That God has taken a son or God has taken a child to add Allah. That's why the prophets Allah Allah, Allah wa sallam said, la had a smart Allah Adam, yes, Muhammad Allah, there is no one more patient than Allah in hearing something so evil,

00:31:03--> 00:31:19

because they ascribe a child to him, but somehow what he will earn. So this is the first part of the answer and notice, he doesn't need to say I don't need a child. This is enough. Just know that everything is the ownership of Allah. Then the second part could no no and

00:31:21--> 00:31:23

they are all obedient to him.

00:31:26--> 00:31:30

Everything the heavens and the earth is obedient to Allah subhanaw taala.

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

Yes,

00:31:34--> 00:31:43

everything that happens on the earth, everyone, obeys Allah. Everything obeys Allah. Is there someone that disobeyed Allah?

00:31:46--> 00:31:49

Yes, so not everyone obeys Allah.

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

He has another

00:31:55--> 00:32:02

cool new level Kearney tune, they are all obedient to Him. But one or I will call her

00:32:03--> 00:32:13

willfully, voluntarily or involuntarily. Everyone obeys Allah subhanaw taala. Those who will be willfully or those who submitted

00:32:14--> 00:32:17

the Muslims and everyone who submitted before them.

00:32:19--> 00:32:30

Those who obey involuntarily is everyone else. Of course, the objects we all know obey Allah subhanaw taala and they have no other recourse.

00:32:31--> 00:32:35

The angels, they can only obey Allah subhana wa Tala.

00:32:37--> 00:32:58

A somewhat well armed when Allah subhanaw taala commanded them. Again they said to him, a trainer or a we come to you obediently, Oh Allah, the heavens and the earth. Tell him the disbelievers those who willfully disobey. They are also obeying Allah subhanaw taala. But in another way.

00:33:02--> 00:33:11

One possibility, as Imam Mujahid says, is that he sent their shadows, prostrate to Allah.

00:33:13--> 00:33:14

And this is based on the Quran

00:33:15--> 00:33:18

where Allah subhanaw taala told us that

00:33:20--> 00:33:31

to Allah prostrates everything that is in the heavens and the earth and their shadows, what we learn or whom will do we will have us all

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

this is one possibility. The other possibility is that even if you disobey Allah subhanaw taala you cannot run away or flee from his cuddle.

00:33:46--> 00:33:54

His Khuddam what Allah has decreed for you is going to happen you cannot flee it. And that's why Allah challenges them.

00:33:55--> 00:33:59

And one of the greatest aspects of Allah's decrease is death.

00:34:01--> 00:34:04

If you can flee that, show me

00:34:08--> 00:34:10

the I'm sure there are people who are

00:34:11--> 00:34:26

trying to see if it's possible that human beings can become immortal. Their mortality is the goal of some. Okay, good. I'm glad that someone is trying Allah challenge them.

00:34:28--> 00:34:36

Let's see what you can do. Can you run away from the decree of Allah? We cannot everyone is obedient to Him, whether they like it or not.

00:34:39--> 00:34:47

voluntarily or involuntary kulula Who can attune? So this is answer number two, why would he have a child when everything is obedient to Him?

00:34:49--> 00:34:52

When He says buddy of similar words he went out

00:34:53--> 00:34:57

Buddy, what does it mean? Tada

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

Tada gives you the meaning.

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

of what to innovate, which means what?

00:35:06--> 00:35:10

To bring about something new. Right?

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

In the case of video, somehow it will, yes, it means Allah Subhana Allah created them from absolutely nothing to bring something about from absolutely nothing. This is the meaning of video somehow it will out. So he created the heavens and the earth, there was nothing before that there was somehow it will erode.

00:35:38--> 00:35:51

Why would you ascribe a child to Allah subhanaw taala? And how dare you ascribe a child to Allah subhanaw taala that he was somehow it will out everything

00:35:52--> 00:35:54

is for him, everything belongs to him.

00:35:56--> 00:35:57

The idea was somehow it was

00:35:58--> 00:36:04

what either cover a moron in hula hoop tycoon.

00:36:07--> 00:36:16

If Allah subhanaw taala were to decree a matter, all he has to do is what is say couldn't and it will be me and that is

00:36:17--> 00:36:18

that

00:36:20--> 00:36:21

then we might say

00:36:23--> 00:36:24

he doesn't even have to say could

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

and scholars different.

00:36:30--> 00:36:35

In this case, what'd he say? Couldn't or not? The point is, that's all

00:36:37--> 00:36:53

he doesn't need to do any of what we do now. So the slightest thing that we want to make, will take a long time will take a lot of effort will take consultation will take

00:36:54--> 00:37:00

group efforts for something you know

00:37:01--> 00:37:04

quite simple when you compare it to something like the heavens in the earth.

00:37:06--> 00:37:08

Allah subhanaw taala says B and it is

00:37:09--> 00:37:17

with a cobra Aman for in Amaya Kula who couldn't pay a Khun bn it is that's it, nothing else. It doesn't take time.

00:37:18--> 00:37:27

He doesn't need helpers. He doesn't need a child therefore, or have a child. They never put hula hoop couldn't fire goon.

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

And remember poverty

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

is of the opinion that he does see could

00:37:39--> 00:37:59

find a mayor who couldn't feel good because it keeps keeps coming up that way. Otherwise Allah subhanaw taala could have described it in any other way without actually saying that Allah would say V and it is and then the other IO which is quite clear Allah Subhana Allah says in coluna Lishui in

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

right, either Aradhana who

00:38:04--> 00:38:13

that our saying to something, what is the confirmation that something is being sent in the background Donelly shape,

00:38:14--> 00:38:16

that our saying to anything,

00:38:17--> 00:38:21

if we will, it is to say Be and it is.

00:38:23--> 00:38:30

My brothers and sisters, we believe in the magnificence of Allah

00:38:31--> 00:38:45

and His all encompassing nature, in his competence for everything and his ability to do anything. And all he has to do is say cool, cool. So when you

00:38:47--> 00:38:50

are experiencing that difficulty,

00:38:51--> 00:38:57

and you think to yourself, there is nothing in this dunya that can fix this.

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

And you might be right. The only one who can fix it is Allah subhanaw taala

00:39:05--> 00:39:07

then you will put all your effort

00:39:09--> 00:39:11

to solve that problem.

00:39:12--> 00:39:17

But then you just turn to your Lord, that belief, just that belief,

00:39:19--> 00:39:22

but a true a piercing belief

00:39:23--> 00:39:33

that Allah can change this in an instance, Allah can change my condition, just like this be in it is that belief

00:39:34--> 00:39:55

is what may indeed bring about that consequence that you seek. And Allah will grant it to you. Of course, I'm not saying don't do do ask for it. But we're talking about the importance of that belief that indeed, Allah will make it happen. And it is so easy.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

It's not difficult. It's just being it is

00:40:01--> 00:40:05

Just like Allah subhanaw taala can decree death upon us in an instant

00:40:08--> 00:40:25

can decrease some tribulation upon us in an instant. Be and it is for Allah subhanaw taala. That's the way it is. When the Maya Pula, who couldn't figure who? Allahu Allah, wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad?

00:40:42--> 00:40:43

questions

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

should I ask a question

00:40:49--> 00:40:51

some scholars did say

00:40:52--> 00:40:57

he doesn't say he doesn't have to say Quan. It's just an expression

00:40:59--> 00:41:04

to show that Allah just wills it and it happens. Allah Allah.

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

Allah Allah

00:41:08--> 00:41:11

situation when discussing Allah

00:41:12--> 00:41:12

is

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

suffering.

00:41:18--> 00:41:19

Committee to

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

it has been

00:41:24--> 00:41:26

almost $1 has

00:41:27--> 00:41:36

has a better knowledge of what's going on today. But there are some people who question that. Why? Why system?

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

Yes, absolutely.

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

Of course, this is not now. Right. The issue of Palestine is now 75 years, okay, it's, it's closer to a century than to,

00:41:54--> 00:41:58

let's say, half a century or less.

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

And they've been saying that for a very long time.

00:42:03--> 00:42:14

People who have been experiencing difficulty in many different places in the world, may have been saying that we in Syria said it. We've been saying it for the last 12 years or so.

00:42:16--> 00:42:20

Where is the Nasir? Where's the victory of Allah subhanaw taala

00:42:21--> 00:42:23

the victory of Allah is there.

00:42:24--> 00:42:29

The help of ALLAH is there, but how do we attain it?

00:42:30--> 00:42:39

First of all, have we done everything to deserve his victory? His support and his aid?

00:42:40--> 00:42:45

Maybe the people over there Yes. To a large extent, right.

00:42:47--> 00:43:07

The Roma as a whole, probably not. Right. Allah azza wa jal said in the Quran, what can what can the Halina nostril mean? It is a right upon us Allah obligated upon himself to grant victory to the believers. But we keep asking where are the true believers?

00:43:09--> 00:43:15

And indeed, we realized with time that maybe we are not ready

00:43:16--> 00:43:19

because Allah is making us ready.

00:43:21--> 00:43:29

Because all of these very unfortunate incidents and all of the Muslim grievances

00:43:32--> 00:43:38

are things that Allah subhanaw taala uses to purify the Muslim ummah,

00:43:40--> 00:43:41

to filter out

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

a lot of the

00:43:46--> 00:43:52

the weeds, if you will, the contamination that exists.

00:43:53--> 00:44:33

There are a lot of issues that we are dealing with. The only way to be purified is through things like this. So it is a purification. Of course everything is a test. Allah subhanaw taala purifies us. Allah subhanaw taala raises the status of many, many went to Allah has shahada in sha Allah may Allah subhanaw taala accept them. Allah has raised the status of many who were tested by these incidents. But Allah subhanaw taala has also exposed a lot

00:44:35--> 00:44:38

so many people

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

and

00:44:41--> 00:44:49

associations and institutions and leaders and countries, Allah was exposed.

00:44:51--> 00:44:53

These things expose those people.

00:44:54--> 00:45:00

The problem would be if we go back and we forget and we say we have a show

00:45:00--> 00:45:14

If memory then I remind you of the Hadith of the Prophet Sanlam. A Muslim, a true believer is not stung from the same den twice. learn your lesson. Allah showed you who's your friend, and who's your enemy.

00:45:15--> 00:45:18

Who is for justice and who is for genocide.

00:45:19--> 00:45:34

Allah exposes Allah exposes the hypocrites among the Muslims. Allah expose the Zionist Arabs, we never thought we would put those two words together. We have been saying Christian Zionist.

00:45:35--> 00:45:47

If you go a little bit further and deeper, you might say Protestant Zinus. And now you have Catholic Zionists. And now you have Arab Zionists, how they will label Allah expose.

00:45:48--> 00:45:54

But above all, Brother, keep something in mind. And this is a very important lesson.

00:45:56--> 00:45:58

The timing is not up to us.

00:46:00--> 00:46:01

The timing is up to Allah.

00:46:03--> 00:46:04

So maybe

00:46:07--> 00:46:09

Allah Allah according to

00:46:10--> 00:46:15

what we are doing, actually, we deserve the victory now, maybe.

00:46:16--> 00:46:19

But Allah, out of his wisdom delays it.

00:46:21--> 00:46:26

In the case of I can tell you in the case of what happened in Syria,

00:46:28--> 00:46:35

can you imagine if the revolution was victorious, in year two or three?

00:46:36--> 00:46:41

Do you know how many criminals would still be walking around free.

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

When the

00:46:48--> 00:47:00

crisis was extended, the time was extended, as difficult as it is, as difficult as it is Wala. But when that happened, how many more of the criminals were killed?

00:47:02--> 00:47:06

Allah subhanaw taala destroyed because it kept on going.

00:47:07--> 00:47:12

And we saw what happened in many of the Arab Spring uprisings as well.

00:47:14--> 00:47:28

The criminals left from the door, and they came back from the window, through counter revolutions. So it might be Allah's wisdom, that actually, this is not the time.

00:47:29--> 00:47:50

We need to be patient and remind ourselves so maybe Allah has has responded, I cannot imagine what is happening to the the beleaguered people in Gaza or in Syria or in Burma or anywhere else. All of the dua of these. Let's call them true believers.

00:47:52--> 00:47:55

You might say Allah has responded to their dua

00:47:57--> 00:48:02

has granted them but it's not time yet. The timing is with Allah.

00:48:03--> 00:48:04

Yes, weather.

00:48:10--> 00:48:15

No, has been confirmed and 70% of Russian pilots.

00:48:16--> 00:48:18

Party is booming. Syria has been clearly.

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

There you go.

00:48:23--> 00:48:32

So, again, Allah subhanho wa taala, extended in order to destroy the criminals. Do you think Subhanallah

00:48:34--> 00:48:57

and this is the way I think about it. Especially when we start to think like this, of course, you and I, you know, why are we saying where's the victory of Allah? They're the ones who are seeking the victory of Allah, the One who has lost his his parents or his children or his family and relatives. You and I are sitting pretty, we're just watching.

00:48:58--> 00:49:02

They're the ones who are saying, Oh Allah, where is your victory? Right?

00:49:04--> 00:49:06

Think about it this way, brother.

00:49:09--> 00:49:10

Do you think

00:49:11--> 00:49:13

Allah is somehow unjust?

00:49:14--> 00:49:20

or Allah subhanaw taala does not want to grant them victory. Or maybe this is not very bad.

00:49:21--> 00:49:33

It's okay. If 10s of 1000s of people killed 10s of 1000s of people injured altogether, maybe around 100,000. Is it so bad?

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

Yes, it's very bad.

00:49:38--> 00:49:41

Think about the fact that on the Day of Judgment,

00:49:43--> 00:49:50

Allah subhanaw taala will take the right of an animal from another animal.

00:49:52--> 00:49:55

Can you believe it? are animals held accountable?

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

Rather, are animals held accountable on the Day of Judgment? No.

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

So they will not go to Paradise or hellfire.

00:50:04--> 00:50:20

So they're not accountable. Why on earth is Allah taking the right of one animal from another, because he is unhappy? And because he is justice and he is the infinite justice. So he will take the right of the animal without horns

00:50:21--> 00:50:23

from the one that has words,

00:50:25--> 00:50:29

you wronged that animal, and then they will be made to dust.

00:50:30--> 00:50:44

The one who does this, you don't think will destroy the likes of the Zionists or Bashar and all of his helpers and all of the kinds that they have done. It's a matter of time.

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

Timing is not up to us the timings with Allah. We just have to trust in His plan.

00:50:51--> 00:50:52

Allah Allah Allah

00:50:56--> 00:51:01

Subhanak along with 100 Can a shadow Allah handle and stop fear aka one or two?
