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

Smilla Rahmanir Rahim hamdulillah Robben Island of La sala to attend with this leam Allah you know have you been our Imam you know I've been class in Mohammed Abdullah while early he was stalking me with Toby I even want to be certain if you know me Dean Subhana Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah marlington NACA and tell Halima hachimura Mishra, honey Sadr uasc li M revival of that Emily Sania who Ali, I praise the Lord mighty 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 Allah, no knowledge have we accept that

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

which you have taught us Indeed, you are the All Knowing the wise, my dear brothers and sisters, as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My dear children, can we

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

delay the noise for a little bit

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

while ecological?

00:00:57--> 00:01:03

Today we continue with the Tafseer of Surah Al Baqarah. And I will remind you that

00:01:04--> 00:02:10

the verse before that we had talked about before is the thing of Allah subhanaw taala where he tells us, that many of Al Kitab would love to turn you back from your religion, to turn you into disbelievers out of hassad from their own selves, okay. We discussed this is a long Aya and it ends with Allah subhanaw taala. Telling the Muslims to forgive and forego, right until Allah subhanaw taala brings about his armor. We talked about all of this after that now so we can make that connection. Allah subhanaw taala says by that we'll be learning a ship on the regime's Mala Rahman Rahim, we're happy Musala to circa one, two, but the Mooli and fusi Kuhn forsaken mean high yielding

00:02:10--> 00:03:10

30 Who who are in law in law Habima maluna bell sleeve. So, here he says, Welcome to Salah to Zakka immediately after talking about how Allah subhanaw taala will bring about his decree or his command, in the case that it is his command, it is the command to defend themselves for the Muslim ummah to defend themselves against their enemies. The permission wasn't given yet, in the case that it is a decree the decree that indeed the Muslims now will deal with those disbelievers who are doing their utmost to try to dissuade them from the religion and get them to become kuffaar. Again, then the connection is Aquino son, our Zeca. So you are going to wait until the decree or the Command of

00:03:10--> 00:03:28

Allah subhanaw taala. In the meantime, focus on the important the most fundamental acts of worship and they are establishing the prayer and the Zakat. And these are always mentioned as you know, throughout the Quran is Allah who

00:03:29--> 00:03:42

they are mentioned throughout the Quran and there are always mentioned together in this way, establishing the prayer and giving this account two of the very important pillars of Islam.

00:03:44--> 00:03:52

The first pillar is what makes you a Muslim. Eyeshadow Allah Allah and Allah shadow anna Muhammad Rasul Allah, then you have the deeds.

00:03:53--> 00:03:59

The first and most important Muslim obligation

00:04:01--> 00:04:05

without any competitor is Salah.

00:04:06--> 00:04:45

The most important Muslim obligation it means you have already become Muslim. You have done your shahada after that Salah, the most important thing the first thing that we are going to be asked about on the day of judgment was a theme of Salah and every time the verb that is used is what a p mu not was something new or something else. Our theme was salah, establish the prayer. And if karma to Salah here includes everything that we can do to perfect our prayer,

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

in terms of humility, in standing before Allah subhanaw taala in terms of the rules and regulations of the Salah, understanding how to do it, and we were talking about some things about the Salah before

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

We began the thick of Salah

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

in terms of the

00:05:10--> 00:05:29

let's say the etiquette of Salah. All of these things are part of a karma to Salah establishing the prayer. It's such an important act of worship that it essentially defines the Muslim and the ummah.

00:05:31--> 00:05:41

And thus Subhanallah when you talk to non Muslims, who may not know a lot about Islam, but they do know that you pray five times a day

00:05:42--> 00:06:04

as much as they may be ignorant about the deen but they will know this. All I know is they pray five times a day. This is the ultimate identity for us a follow up theme was Salah and of course that also includes the importance of the Salah in Jana okay what are chemo a Salah

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

it's interesting well people Salah to Zakah

00:06:10--> 00:06:12

fasting is never mentioned.

00:06:14--> 00:06:19

But fasting is nothing to sniff at, as you know,

00:06:20--> 00:06:29

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he was asked about something that he should do, he told them you should fast for it has no equal.

00:06:30--> 00:06:36

But it is not usually mentioned. It's always Salah and Zika, Salah and Zakka why

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

maybe someone would like to

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

volunteer response

00:06:51--> 00:06:54

karma to Salah maybe sometimes the fasting of Ramadan.

00:06:56--> 00:06:59

It seems to Allahu Allah, that the prayer

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

is the fundamental act of worship in terms of what we may call physical worship, okay, by that by the NIA. All right.

00:07:13--> 00:07:23

It's prayer, we might then put fasting in that category as well. So Allah subhanaw taala mentioned, the more important one which is Salah.

00:07:25--> 00:08:05

And then when he mentioned zakah, this is a different category. This is Financial worship now, but it is also so important, because there it's not something you're doing for yourself. Something you're doing for the community. Yes, it is self purification, it is purification of my wealth, but it is also me giving back to the community. The importance of the community, this is this has a social dimension, right? That maybe this the salah does not. So a team of Salah to Zakah interestingly, when the Prophet sallallahu sallam said what are the bingeable to Yemen?

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

What did he say to him?

00:08:09--> 00:08:28

He said that you should call them to first thing La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, there seems to be an order. This is important for Dawa and our methodology. Don't go there and tell them, give them a long list. This is what you need to do to become Muslim.

00:08:30--> 00:08:33

If you haven't been circumcised, you need to circumcise.

00:08:35--> 00:08:54

Or you can't do this and you can't do that. And you shouldn't do this and you should do that none of the above. Call them to La ilaha illAllah. Notice the order. If they respond if they agree, then tell them that Allah subhanaw taala has made five prayers obligatory upon them every day.

00:08:55--> 00:09:07

If they agree to that, then tell them that there is an annual zakat that they have to pay Subhana carob This is Dawa, learn Dawa from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

Otherwise, especially today, where harm is so easy and halal is so difficult. So, you want to take a long list and tell them you have to do all if you cannot do all don't become Muslim.

00:09:25--> 00:09:26

For what is this

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

some people came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

and they stipulated certain conditions.

00:09:36--> 00:09:44

They had conditions. They are pulling conditions for very slum to the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam.

00:09:45--> 00:09:49

We will become Muslim but there is a bug there.

00:09:50--> 00:09:53

We are not ready to do this. We're not ready to do that.

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

The response of the Prophet okay then forget it. No

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

become Muslim and then we'll see.

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

Because he knows,

00:10:06--> 00:10:34

once a person submits to Allah subhanaw taala that's it. He's on the path with time. As they get closer to Allah and they love Allah more and they worship Allah Warren they become closer to Allah subhanaw taala immediately, they will start to now get rid off some of the things that they were doing that are prohibited and they would engage in that which Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with of worship, this is the way

00:10:37--> 00:10:48

well tea masala to Zakka always Subhana carob. So take care of these two, especially these two people Salah to Zakka,

00:10:49--> 00:10:55

one or two, cut the Mooli, unfussy come in hive that you do who are in the law

00:10:56--> 00:11:05

and what you put forth of good of good deeds, you will find it with Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:11:06--> 00:11:40

Whatever you do of good deeds, it will be with Allah subhanho wa taala. So have no worry that anything is lost, or forgotten, or not seen or missed. It is with Allah subhanaw taala anything that you put forth, put forth meaning you do it now. Now, before you die, after that, there is no chance to do any more work. And that is why this is considered

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

a minor Day of Judgment.

00:11:44--> 00:11:48

Not necessarily because you're going to be accountable immediately at death.

00:11:49--> 00:12:05

But because you no longer have the chance to work and put forth anything that time was over that clock is finished. Right? So it's almost like the Day of Judgment has already started. For that person. Allah subhanaw taala

00:12:07--> 00:12:10

make our end, the best.

00:12:13--> 00:12:26

The woman to cut the movie and for cecum what you are putting forth you are putting forth for yourself not for anyone else. Allah doesn't need it. Your friends and relatives could care less. This is for you.

00:12:28--> 00:12:29

For the person

00:12:30--> 00:12:42

you're going to be you're going to benefit from that on the Day of Judgment, not anyone else what led to the moon and fusi calm. What you put forth is for your own self mean higher.

00:12:45--> 00:13:12

One way to continually unphysical mean how you didn't mean higher off. Good. This includes all good my dear brothers and sisters. All good men hire mama to animal embassy come mean higher. Any good deed, no matter how small in your perception. This is something that Allah subhanaw taala is going to reward you for

00:13:13--> 00:13:20

why am I to continually unphysical mean Hiren? Can we do more in the Allah it's going to be with Allah, I guarantee you.

00:13:22--> 00:13:29

There are so many deeds that you and I have done of good

00:13:30--> 00:13:50

and we have forgotten about it. You will find it on the Day of Judgment with Allah. And he will remember oh Subhan Allah. Yeah, I did that. I paid that charity I helped that person. I went out and I did that Allah I did this I did that.

00:13:51--> 00:14:04

There will be things that we forgot. It is with Allah subhanho wa Taala Asahi, Allah who won a su Allah enumerated it, but they forgot it.

00:14:05--> 00:14:12

And we will we probably have forgotten many things. If you haven't forgotten. That's a little bit worrying as well.

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

If you remember every single good thing you've done,

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

then

00:14:21--> 00:14:43

Well, the question is, are you really doing it from for Allah subhanaw taala? Is it so difficult that you remember every single one? I think most of us have done so much good that we have forgotten it, but it will be with Allah subhanho wa Taala who am I to add the Malian fusi come in how you doing that we do who are in Allah

00:14:44--> 00:14:51

and of course especially the obligations such as establishing prayer and paying this occur.

00:14:53--> 00:14:56

Notice brothers and sisters

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

there is a common misconception

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

that goes something like this.

00:15:05--> 00:15:56

If you are truly sincere in what you're doing for Allah, you are not looking for his reward. It doesn't matter if he rewards you or not, you're doing it for the grace of God for the glory of Allah, nothing else. But the Quran is replete with talk about paradise and hellfire, talk about reward and the importance of reward. And the fact that Allah subhanaw taala has enumerated all of this woman who condemned William fusi Coleman hype, what you put forth of good, this is for you and you are going to find it with Allah. In other words, have no doubt that it is with Allah, that you do who are in Allah Subhana Allah, not did you do? You will find it with Allah subhanaw taala and

00:15:56--> 00:16:01

he's going to reward you for it. Allah keeps telling us that, why?

00:16:02--> 00:16:20

For one, in order to counter this misconception, no, it's okay to do it for the reward of Allah subhanaw taala Allah is the most generous, he is our common economy. And he is a Shaku, he is the most grateful, and he wants to give you

00:16:21--> 00:16:25

Subhanallah if you do anything else,

00:16:26--> 00:16:37

as part of your work, or good deed for someone, and maybe you are expecting something in return, you expect something in return from these

00:16:38--> 00:17:29

weak, selfish, limited human beings who maybe don't want to reward you. But then when you talk about Allah, you say, no, no, no, I don't expect any reward from Allah subhana carob. Sir, it's a contradiction in terms. No one is as grateful as Allah, you do the slightest thing for Allah He wants to do so much for you. And then you say no, no, I'm not doing it for that. I want the reward of Allah. I want everything that Allah has that he can give to me because he is the most generous and this is part of going to Allah subhanaw taala going towards Allah subhanaw taala there is no issue with this woman to condemn them for fuzzy come in Hi, tech, G do Allah otherwise he wouldn't

00:17:29--> 00:17:33

tell us things like this. Whatever you put forth, you're gonna find it I have no doubt.

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

It's okay to think that way.

00:17:38--> 00:18:04

Then of course, the Quran is talking to all of humanity. Even if we argue hypothetically that some people are able to do things and they don't are not looking for a reward or not expecting any reward from Allah subhanaw taala not everyone can do that. And definitely there is more incentive when they know there is a reward and Allah wants to reward Who are you to stop it or block it?

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

Allah azza wa jal says hello,

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

sun in the sun, you have done the sun. You don't want a sun in return from Allah who is the most grateful?

00:18:21--> 00:18:25

Warmer to continually unfussy can hiring to do wind Allah

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:18:31--> 00:18:33

asked the Sahaba an important question

00:18:35--> 00:18:38

he asked them who of you

00:18:41--> 00:18:48

is the the money or the wealth of their inheritors

00:18:49--> 00:18:53

is more beloved to them than their own wealth.

00:18:56--> 00:19:01

So, if we ask them this question here, who here listening?

00:19:04--> 00:19:10

Who would consider the wealth of their inheritors, the ones that are going to inherit them?

00:19:12--> 00:19:16

Who considers that wealth more beloved to them than their own?

00:19:17--> 00:19:44

I think no one, right? Everyone favors their own wealth, rather than the money that they will bequeath to their inheritance. So the Sahaba immediately answered in that way, all Messenger of Allah, none of us would prefer the wealth of our inheritors than our own wealth. So he said to them, actually, that is the way it is.

00:19:45--> 00:19:58

You favor the wealth of your inheritors more than your own wealth. So he said, Now Luca, ma Danta

00:20:05--> 00:20:11

Your wealth is the wealth that you put forward. What is putting forward

00:20:12--> 00:20:16

spending it in the way of Allah subhanaw taala this is your wealth,

00:20:18--> 00:20:26

the wealth that you do not spend. This is the wealth of the ones who are going to inherit you is not yours.

00:20:27--> 00:20:44

You will die and it will go to them. Your wealth is what you put forward. Now, don't want to continually see coming Hi, this is your well, the very interesting clarification by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:20:45--> 00:20:46

showing

00:20:47--> 00:21:01

that things are not always the way they seem. And this is the way it is. And there are narrations that some of the Sahaba may have conversed or said things

00:21:03--> 00:21:14

when they were visiting the graves to those who are dead along the lines of let us tell you what happened after you died.

00:21:15--> 00:21:23

Your wife got remarried. Your wealth was distributed and and and right life goes on.

00:21:25--> 00:22:04

What does the person there in the grave have what they put forth my condom warmer to cut the moly unfussy coming higher than we do in the law? In Allah Habima Tama Luna Basu Indeed, Allah subhanaw taala is of what you do, seeing. So this is another reason to do as much as you can because Allah subhanaw taala is overseeing everything and all of our deeds, and he sees all that we do. And it is also a threat to the ones who do other than hire

00:22:05--> 00:22:13

who do not put forth the good deeds. Allah is Seeing of what they do, and they need to be cognizant of that.

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

Then Allah subhanaw taala tells us

00:22:22--> 00:22:27

we're called Lulu you're the halal janitor in lemon, Canada who then own Asara.

00:22:29--> 00:22:30

They said,

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

None will enter paradise except

00:22:36--> 00:22:40

the one who is Jewish or Christian.

00:22:43--> 00:22:46

So is that exactly what they said?

00:22:50--> 00:22:54

None will enter paradise unless they are a Jew or a Christian.

00:22:56--> 00:22:57

Is that what they say? Now?

00:22:58--> 00:23:04

You have to be either a Jew or a Christian to enter Paradise is that what we understand from the air?

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

Yes, no.

00:23:12--> 00:23:13

You have to be a Jew or a Christian.

00:23:16--> 00:23:17

What who said?

00:23:22--> 00:23:29

So the Jews and the Christians said, they agreed that you have to be a Jew or a Christian to enter paradise.

00:23:36--> 00:23:45

The Jews said you have to be a Jew to enter paradise. The Christian said, you have to be a Christian to enter paradise.

00:23:46--> 00:23:55

Not that they are saying and agreeing, yes, your Christian will enter paradise. But that's all. That's not what the IRS means.

00:23:57--> 00:24:25

Okay, and some scholars said that this here, there may be what we call left one Nash, which we mentioned before, where you have two sets. And the first element of the first set may be matched with the first element of the second set. And the second element of the first set is matched with the second element of the second set. Sorry to take you back to your days of mathematics, maybe linear algebra.

00:24:28--> 00:24:47

Or it might be the opposite. The first element of the first set is matched with the second element of the second set. And the second element of the first set is matched with the first element of the second set. I don't know if I confuse myself, but something like that. Okay, so here it seems Allah Allah, the Jews sent

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

you will not enter paradise unless you're a Jew. And the Christian said, you will not enter paradise unless you're a Christian, meaning they are saying to each other you have to be upon

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

Religion, not that it may seem to some, especially in the context of our world today, and certain ideas and relationships today, they might think that this is somehow a manifestation of the Judeo Christian tradition, right? Because we see that proximity in the relationship between Jews and Christians.

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

And now this term has become very prevalent judo, or Judeo Christian. So it's not that they're saying, yes, your Christian will be saved, but everyone else will not know the Jews are saying you have to be a Jew. And the Christians are saying you have to be a Christian. And this definitely applies to that time. This is what they were saying, keep in mind,

00:25:49--> 00:25:57

things that have to do with the perception of that religion towards others, changes with time.

00:25:59--> 00:26:23

And the typical example is between the Christians and the the Jews themselves. So yes, they seem so close now. They seem like unbreakable allies now, in a marriage that will never ever experienced divorce. This is the way it seems right. But for all practical purposes, the Jews do not and have not forgotten

00:26:24--> 00:26:28

2000 years of persecution that they lived under the Christians.

00:26:31--> 00:26:51

So, just because different things are being said now, sometimes for political correctness for because of societal pressures because of different things. But in the past, Allah is telling us this is what they used to say. And possibly they will say it now as well.

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

If they

00:26:55--> 00:27:25

are honest about it, the Jews will say, only the Jews will enter Paradise and the Christians will say only the Christians will enter Paradise, or Carlo Lee or the full agenda in lemon, Canada who didn't own a surah who then here as opposed to or not, yeah, who would? Who then who would being the plural of her end? Okay, which is a reference to the hood. Haida, what does Heather mean?

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

In hooded Lake,

00:27:30--> 00:27:31

we have repented to you.

00:27:34--> 00:27:43

So who here is the plural, which means those who come back to Allah subhanaw taala and repentance illumine Ghana who then Alina surah.

00:27:45--> 00:27:50

One of the ways we know that this is the correct interpretation is the verse that is coming. Neither

00:27:52--> 00:28:12

were the Jews sent that the Christians are upon nothing, nothing acceptable. And the Christians say the same about the Jews. So this is clearly the case. And we know the Quran has repeatedly told us also that there are so many differences between them.

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

There are there's friction between them. There are quarrels between them. There is a lot of opposition between them. But at times, yes, they will ally each other. So what happened to all of that?

00:28:29--> 00:28:31

Bloody history?

00:28:32--> 00:28:42

What happened to all of the persecution and the killings. And of course, the Jews are looking at the Christians and the Christians are saying you tried to kill our God?

00:28:44--> 00:28:57

What happened to all of this? It seems to have been neatly, you know, swept under the rug, okay? Because there's something more pressing at hand.

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

And

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

some may say that, there are many attempts also to try to forget about the past and look to the future and mend relations and start something new, and things of that nature.

00:29:15--> 00:29:19

In lemon, Canada, who then Ansara till you whom,

00:29:20--> 00:29:26

where are you getting this from? And where do you have the audacity to speak about paradise as if Allah has told you

00:29:28--> 00:29:48

as if Allah subhanaw taala has guaranteed to you that you will be in paradise to the Christians or the Jews till you home? These these are their false wishes, their wishful thinking, this is a nanny, wishful thinking just like when they said no who? Allah.

00:29:49--> 00:29:58

We are the Beloved of Allah subhanaw taala we are the children of Allah and His Beloved. Allah will not punish us again. Wishful thinking

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

To set a few is before that we were dealing with what did you say about hellfire? Hellfire will not touch us except for a few days. Where are you getting this?

00:30:13--> 00:30:24

And where do you get the boldness the nerve to say something like this about Allahu Allah when I hear Jews speaking about Allah? Yeah honey Allahu Akbar.

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

It's,

00:30:28--> 00:30:35

it's scary. You you almost think that the punishment of Allah is going to come, as they are speaking

00:30:37--> 00:30:43

of you, obviously, when when the Christians speak about Allah subhanaw taala and

00:30:45--> 00:30:52

say things that would make the heavens fall as the Quran says. But

00:30:53--> 00:31:06

from my experience, from what I've heard, when the Jews speak about Allah, there's a strange disrespect, even though Subhanallah look at the the contradictions. On the other hand, they will say,

00:31:08--> 00:31:47

they will not even pronounce the word of God, the name of God, it's so holy, they will not pronounce it. They might mention a letter of it, but not the whole thing. Right? That's how much they revere God. But then you listen to the way they're talking about, almost like, he's their friend, you know, and he, he's just like a human being, and he forgets, and he has feelings and all kinds of strange, anthropomorphic ideas, even though they are supposed to be the ones who are very staunch monotheists. Right. So

00:31:50--> 00:31:58

the wishful thinking, only we will enter paradise and other sects have said that as well. Mind you.

00:32:01--> 00:32:04

We still find I still have seen

00:32:05--> 00:32:27

Christian preachers, telling people condemning people to hellfire in front of their faces. I have seen Christian preachers look at people in front of them and say, You're going to hell. You're going to hell, Allah Akbar. May Allah Shala increase those types of preachers, because there'll be nobody left

00:32:28--> 00:32:46

to have people preaching to the religion that way, but this is what they will do Topanga carob. So you are saved. And now you're condemning people to hell? Who gave you the key to hellfire or paradise? And where do you get the audacity to speak on behalf of Allah this way?

00:32:47--> 00:32:51

Prophets and Messengers did not condemn people to paradise or hellfire.

00:32:53--> 00:32:54

Tilka many yoo hoo

00:32:57--> 00:33:24

Woo to the ones whose religion is all wishful thinking, till finally you just false hopes and wishes and conjectures and this is why till a man you have to come in terms of the pin, say to them, bring your proof. If you are indeed truthful.

00:33:25--> 00:33:31

Allah is instructing the prophets of salaam to say to them, how to go Hannah, what is your proof for this?

00:33:32--> 00:33:35

Of course, when Allah subhanaw taala tells them

00:33:36--> 00:33:43

to request the proof. This is because Allah knows that they have no proof.

00:33:44--> 00:33:52

Otherwise, if you are debating someone, and you tell them give me the proof, and you know they have the proof.

00:33:54--> 00:33:56

You're not a very smart debater, right?

00:33:57--> 00:34:08

Allah knows there is no proof called her to Morocco give me that proof we see nowadays Subhanallah in all of the false propaganda that's happening

00:34:09--> 00:34:15

in Palestine from the Jewish Zionists, how they keep

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

repeating the same false propaganda, the same false stories, right and lies.

00:34:26--> 00:34:42

Has anyone told them bring me the proof? Where's your proof? They have no proof. They just keep regurgitating the same lies. And I see one person after another just listening and kind of letting it pass. Show me the proof. You have no proof

00:34:43--> 00:34:57

and if they come up with some kind of false proof, then you falsify the proof that they are claiming is proof. want her to work harder come in quantum Saudi thing if you are indeed truthful. This is a religion of proof.

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

Let no one

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

I'm telling you, Islam is a religion about blind faith.

00:35:06--> 00:35:27

On the contrary, it is a religion of proof. Even the existence of Allah, the greatest fact of the universe is the existence of Allah subhanaw taala. Allah gives us logical proofs in the Quran for his existence,

00:35:28--> 00:35:31

and for the impossibility of there being any other gods.

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

Does Allah need to prove himself?

00:35:36--> 00:35:37

Of course not.

00:35:38--> 00:35:40

But it's the importance of proof.

00:35:42--> 00:36:01

We do not believe in blind faith. We don't believe in the idea of you just have to believe you just have to close your eyes. I know it doesn't make any sense. You have to believe no, we don't have this. This does not exist in Islam.

00:36:02--> 00:36:06

Though some people may try to malign Islam and Muslims by saying so.

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

The truth has already become

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

clear.

00:36:12--> 00:36:17

I have witnessed one non Muslim after another, accepting Islam.

00:36:19--> 00:36:27

And when asked, Why did you become Muslim? And they mentioned some of the reasons, this is one of the reasons

00:36:28--> 00:36:32

they will say you guys have an answer for everything.

00:36:34--> 00:36:42

You don't have any such thing as Oh, you just have to believe, because they're sick of that. Because that's all they hear in Christianity.

00:36:43--> 00:36:58

When they start asking the hard questions, you just have to believe you need to stop asking these questions. Almost as if asking the questions makes them somehow less in faith, you just have to believe. And once you have that connection,

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

you won't have any of those questions anymore. Guess what? That's called blind faith.

00:37:05--> 00:37:21

Because what you do is you just push down all of that logic, right? You push it away, because it doesn't make any sense. So the only way to live, when you don't have any other alternative is just to say, okay, it doesn't make any sense. But that's all I have. So I'm gonna believe.

00:37:22--> 00:37:26

No, not in Islam. Islam is built on proof.

00:37:27--> 00:37:39

It has to make sense. The Trinity makes absolutely no sense. They can explain it and write books about it from now until the Day of Judgment, it will not.

00:37:40--> 00:37:53

And if they don't realize it, or they haven't realized that yet, most Christians who have left Christianity is because of the Trinity. It never ever made sense.

00:37:55--> 00:37:57

You cannot make three equal to one.

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

And even Jews

00:38:01--> 00:38:05

who would like to possibly include the Christians

00:38:08--> 00:38:12

so that they can go to Paradise together. They tell you

00:38:13--> 00:38:15

their main issue is this.

00:38:17--> 00:38:19

This is not monotheism

00:38:20--> 00:38:30

calling him God or the son of God, this is unacceptable. So on that front, we are much better as mother theists in the eyes of Jews.

00:38:32--> 00:38:34

fool her to BronyCon

00:38:35--> 00:38:37

in quantum Saudi clean

00:38:38--> 00:39:01

then Allah subhanaw taala replies Bella, when Islamabad Hangul Allah so these are your false hopes? No, it is not what you think it is not the way you are claiming. Bella. Yes, yes, but in other words, now, there is a however,

00:39:02--> 00:39:15

yes, however, Bella min Esla Murgia, hula, whoever submits their face to Allah. Islam Winterhold Allah.

00:39:16--> 00:39:27

So in other words, what the meaning of submits their face to Allah Subhana Allah is that they submit themselves Bellarmine Islam when you have hula

00:39:28--> 00:39:35

Why is the face being mentioned? Possibly for different reasons. Number one, the face is the

00:39:36--> 00:39:52

most noble part of the human being. It's not your hands. It's not your chest. It's not your toes. It's your face. Okay. And this is why when we talk about the prohibition of

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

statues or 3d images, usually the concentration is on the face.

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

Yeah.

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

So,

00:40:04--> 00:40:14

this is one aspect, the most noble part of the human being. Here the face which is a part of the human being, is being referenced.

00:40:15--> 00:40:26

For the whole human being. The reference is the face but what is meant is the whole human being, that we should submit ourselves to Allah Bellum and Islam Allah wa will Allah

00:40:27--> 00:40:37

Yes, however, whoever submits themselves to Allah submits their face to Allah, meaning we direct ourselves to Allah subhanaw taala this may be another reason

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

is that the face is what we face things with. It's how we find direction.

00:40:48--> 00:40:52

When you talk to me, I don't give you my back, right?

00:40:53--> 00:41:06

Or my side, I'm supposed to turn to you. The prophets, Allah says Allah when he was spoken to, he would look at the person he would turn to the person. This is this is the etiquette of speech.

00:41:07--> 00:41:21

But some people who have some arrogance, maybe if they are being taught to maybe you know, talk to me from the side or from the back, no, you face the person. The face is how we find direction.

00:41:22--> 00:41:24

This is why I mean,

00:41:26--> 00:41:34

it's might seem a little bit strange, but maybe consider the human being with the face turned around.

00:41:36--> 00:41:39

Why is this the front and that the back?

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

Is it mainly because of the face? So if you were to turn the face around now,

00:41:46--> 00:41:47

right?

00:41:48--> 00:41:55

Is this still the front? Would I still walk this way and my face is looking backwards?

00:41:57--> 00:42:02

Or would I walk in the direction of the face? The face is the direction right

00:42:03--> 00:42:13

now Kim, what you Hakka Lydia Hanifa Allah subhanaw taala commands the salam that you should turn your face

00:42:14--> 00:42:25

to the deme straight without any crookedness, without any digression. When he talks about the qibla, saying,

00:42:26--> 00:42:47

We direct ourselves Allah azza wa jal is saying, submit yourselves by directing yourselves towards Allah subhanaw taala go to Allah fulfill ru in Allah, go towards Allah subhanaw taala obviously not physically, but you're going in the direction of Allah subhanaw taala in the mu herd you will

00:42:49--> 00:42:51

go towards Allah.

00:42:55--> 00:43:07

So, Bella, min s Lemma wotja Hula, the one who submits themselves to Allah subhanaw taala submits their faiths to Allah subhanaw taala well, who will not sin?

00:43:09--> 00:43:39

Well, who am I sin, and He does good or he is a doer of good. So here we have two very important elements, a slammer wotja, who Lilla were who are saying, What is this a reference to? Clearly a slum or what is submission? It is Islam. Nothing else. It is true Islam.

00:43:42--> 00:44:08

After the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it can only be through him before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Were there people who fulfill that condition or those conditions As salam o Allah who absolutely are the ones who follow the prophets then and we discuss the area in della Dena Amman will have been a hurdle. When NESARA was sabe. Right.

00:44:09--> 00:44:34

Those who were in that time, who follow their prophets did not corrupt the message, submitted themselves to Allah and did righteous good deeds. They are the ones who will deserve the reward of Allah subhanaw taala it is the same. It is only after of course, the coming of the sin of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that it has to be through his way his Sharia

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

Belen Islam which I will allow Who am I using? Throughout the Quran Allah mentions to us and Iman while al Assad

00:44:45--> 00:44:50

belief in Allah and righteous good deeds. We need both.

00:44:51--> 00:44:55

We cannot make do with one or the other. You need both.

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

And in the end here

00:45:00--> 00:45:32

We see the same thing as cinema watch how they live, this is submitting to Allah. And this is the meaning of all of the prophets peace be upon them all being submitters to Allah, and as such, they are all Muslims. So when we say Prophet No, she was a Muslim, we do not mean that he was following the Sharia of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam it means Islam which how the law he was a submitter. That's what Islam is all about submitting yourself to Allah.

00:45:35--> 00:45:53

Whether it is no Hala is Salem, or who are solid, we're sure Ieave or Brahim or Musa. They're all Muslims. Allah him salatu salam because they submitted themselves to Allah Bella man, Islam, Allah wa who are watching

00:45:55--> 00:46:03

Furthermore, one of the greatest deeds that we can do is with our face.

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

What is it?

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

Smiling

00:46:11--> 00:46:14

a beautiful deed definitely an act of worship

00:46:20--> 00:46:25

should shoot the closest you are to Allah azza wa jal isn't so dude,

00:46:26--> 00:46:29

Islam, Allah, some of the non Muslims,

00:46:30--> 00:46:32

they just want to try it.

00:46:33--> 00:46:36

So they do it even before shahada before anything.

00:46:38--> 00:46:39

They will just

00:46:40--> 00:46:59

put their foreheads on the floor. And they just go into another world for us Alhamdulillah. We've been doing it for many years, maybe decades. But for someone who has never done it, it is a life transforming action.

00:47:01--> 00:47:06

To put their forehead on the floor for Allah subhanaw taala

00:47:07--> 00:47:13

of worship, and that's why they get emotional and they cry and most probably they become Muslim after that.

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

Bella and Islam, Allah, wa who are more sin, and He is a doer of good deeds.

00:47:23--> 00:47:26

You cannot just say I am a submitter and then

00:47:27--> 00:47:33

not do anything else that proves that you are truly a submitter. We need both.

00:47:34--> 00:47:43

We criticize others, because they say, my belief will save me and I don't need to do anything else. I may I do but I may not.

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

My belief will save me

00:47:47--> 00:48:09

Well, who am I sin and he is a doer of good deeds Alladhina amanu aminu salejaw. But furthermore, he mentions my sin, son, the prophets are seldom mentioned the sun what is the sun in the authentic hadith to worship Allah as if you see him? If you do not see him he sees you.

00:48:10--> 00:48:25

Son, Allah subhanaw taala decree the sun upon all acts even the slaughter of an animal do it well. Fear Allah do it in a way that doesn't torture the animal this is Sam

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

well who are more sin?

00:48:30--> 00:48:40

Leah Blue Welcome. Uh, you come, sir, no, Allah Allah, to test you to see who of you is best in deeds.

00:48:43--> 00:48:55

We said after Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam The only way is to do things according to the guidance of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that is what is acceptable only not anything else.

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

So as an example,

00:48:59--> 00:49:03

you will find many Christians, Christian priests

00:49:07--> 00:49:08

nuns

00:49:10--> 00:49:18

who have locked themselves up in convents and monasteries, solely for the worship of Allah.

00:49:21--> 00:49:27

Will this be accepted? Let us argue hypothetically, that this is out of submission to Allah.

00:49:29--> 00:49:34

Even though it is not the correct submission to Allah because it is not the correct belief, right.

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

But let us argue

00:49:37--> 00:49:43

that they have submitted themselves to God in that way. And that's why they have completely

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

isolated themselves and they've abandoned everything else for the worship of Allah.

00:49:50--> 00:49:54

But then, does it fulfill the second condition? Well, we're Marcin,

00:49:55--> 00:50:00

is this a good deed? According to the guidance

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

Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, no, this is not the guidance of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, this is prohibited. And Allah told us in the Quran, how

00:50:12--> 00:50:26

this is something that they innovated. And it was something that, unfortunately, they did not fulfill as it was supposed to be fulfilled. This is not the guidance of the prophets of Salaam. And similarly now

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

apply that to Muslims.

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

There are Muslims, maybe their email is in place, they have submitted to Allah, Islam, our child in law, but he is not missing. Not because he's not doing righteous, good deeds, but because it's not according to the guidance of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:50:46--> 00:50:56

Maybe he's, I mean, there are all kinds of things that Muslims do, unfortunately, that seem completely unrelated to

00:50:58--> 00:51:11

the guidance of Mohamed Salah Salem, I'm sure some of you have seen on the night of the 27th of Ramadan. Okay, what is widely believed to be laying it and other you know how some people

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

are,

00:51:15--> 00:51:23

let's say, worship Allah on that night, by jumping up and down and saying, Allah, Allah, Allah, where did you get this?

00:51:25--> 00:51:30

This doesn't exist in the guidance of Prophet Muhammad jumping up and down like rabbits.

00:51:31--> 00:51:34

Is this one hour my sin, this is not my sin.

00:51:35--> 00:51:39

My sin is according to the guidance of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam,

00:51:41--> 00:51:50

we have to be very careful with this. It applies to the Muslims as well as the non Muslims. And you can think I'm sure you can give me many examples.

00:51:52--> 00:51:59

So a slimmer which holy, no, who am I saying this is the other way it was understood. Let's get my word out. Allah is a class,

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

the condition of a class that it is solely for the sake of Allah.

00:52:06--> 00:52:28

And the other one is that it is good, good in the sense not only that, it is a good deed. But it is good in the in terms of the standards of Sharia, that it complies with the Sharia Sharia compliant, if you will,

00:52:30--> 00:52:30

to our medicine.

00:52:33--> 00:52:37

So what about the other example? Someone who may be Watson

00:52:39--> 00:52:42

according to the guidance of Mohammed sauce and lamb, but

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

the other condition is not fulfilled like whom?

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

Can you give me an example?

00:52:55--> 00:52:59

The easier one actually, someone that does something with no class.

00:53:00--> 00:53:03

They're not doing it for Allah. They're doing it out of RIA.

00:53:04--> 00:53:06

They will not fit in.

00:53:07--> 00:53:08

They are praying.

00:53:09--> 00:53:10

They are fasting

00:53:12--> 00:53:29

according to the guidance of Prophet Muhammad wa salam, but it's not us. This will not be acceptable. Bella, he tells the Jews of the Christians Bella and Islam I would have Lila well who are more sin, Allah Who a Jew or interrupt

00:53:30--> 00:53:39

whoever does these two things, they will have their reward with their Lord, with a whole finale he will know and they will be no fear upon them or grief.

00:53:40--> 00:53:56

These are the people who are going to be saved. These are the people who will enjoy the reward of Allah the paradise of Allah subhanaw taala those are the ones for whom Allah subhanaw taala made that reward and made that paradise.

00:53:58--> 00:54:02

And they will not fear on a day where so many will fear

00:54:03--> 00:54:07

and they will not grieve on a day will so many words so many will grieve.

00:54:10--> 00:54:16

The other I say it observes the other idea before that we covered

00:54:18--> 00:54:59

in a similar idea, but concerning punishment as opposed to reward when the Jews said the Hellfire will not touch us except for a few days the answer was Bella min Casa ye attend. Wha ha thought we thought we had to write. We talked about the Tafseer of that tire. That is in the punishment that whoever does say we said that is Cooper and should write well how could it be helping at all and he's seen surrounds him. Those are the people of the Hellfire similarly, but oppositely here he says Bella bye

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

SLM awards how Linda who are missing those are the people that Allah subhanaw taala will reward We ask Allah to make us of those Baraka Luffy como SallAllahu Sallam over calorie Allah
