My dear brothers and sisters Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh hope everybody is doing well on this fine night. Today we continue with the Tafseer of Surah Al Baqarah. And we got to the following verse, Allah subhanaw taala said

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

on the regime Smilla Rahmanir Rahim

00:01:05 --> 00:01:06

walk on the

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

moon Allah Allah you can name when Allahu wa T Yeah, the kneecap on the Nano pod at him miss luckily him Tasha Lupo whom are thereby en

00:01:27 --> 00:01:35

la mia Ukraine Hoon are called Wakanda leadin Allah Allah Munna Lola you can live on Allah yes for that.

00:01:38 --> 00:01:40

Which is it? One?

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

One something Yeah,

00:01:44 --> 00:01:45

it's on the left side.

00:01:48 --> 00:01:51

Left side just almost at the end of the first

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

one is

00:01:55 --> 00:01:59

we go by is but we don't go by numbers. To be honest.

00:02:01 --> 00:02:08

We go by names of sewers and the the verses themselves you know,

00:02:09 --> 00:02:37

it wasn't really a thing that oh you refer to the number or you refer to the number this thing about chapter five chapter 43? No, we used to say the name of the sutra and then the idea you might mention the number just to make things easier. We are almost done with the first Jaws launch Allah gives us life Bacala Medina Allah Allah Hoon Lola you can leave when Allah

00:02:39 --> 00:03:10

here is a reference again to those who do not have knowledge. We read it a few verses before at the top of the page, okay. And he mentioned those who do not have knowledge. And we said there that that may be a reference to the pagan Arabs. Okay, now the is starting with this we're calling Medina Allah Allahu la mala you can live on Allah. For those who do not have knowledge will say or said.

00:03:12 --> 00:03:15

Why doesn't Allah speak to us?

00:03:16 --> 00:03:21

Or why doesn't assign come to us? Why doesn't he give us a sign?

00:03:23 --> 00:03:36

And this was something that so many people have done in history with their prophets peace be upon them all. They want to see a sign, they want to see a miracle. Okay?

00:03:38 --> 00:03:47

If they are truthful and sincere, they want to see a sign that proves that that prophet is indeed from Allah so they would believe

00:03:48 --> 00:03:51

if they are not sincere, they are mocking

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

they are mocking the prophets peace be upon them all. Show us a sign. Oh, you say you're a prophet. Show us a sign.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:15

How do we know you're a prophet? Can you do this? Can you do that? It's mockery. This is not because they want to believe. Okay, so we need to distinguish between those two types.

00:04:16 --> 00:04:28

We'll call it Latina. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. You can live on Hola. So who is this now a reference to a Latina Hola, hola. Those who do not know. First of all, what don't they know?

00:04:30 --> 00:04:44

What is it that they don't have knowledge of? Clearly they do not have knowledge that would guide them to the truth that would guide them to Allah subhanho wa Taala because true knowledge

00:04:45 --> 00:04:46

guides to Allah.

00:04:51 --> 00:04:52

If it is not true knowledge,

00:04:54 --> 00:04:59

then it will not go to Allah subhanaw taala and this is the way to understand

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

The very bizarre situation of many people we see today with so much apparent knowledge about Islam, but they are not Muslim.

00:05:17 --> 00:05:19

Do we call that knowledge?

00:05:21 --> 00:05:23

Knowledge leads to Allah.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:26

If it hasn't led them to Allah,

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

we cannot call that knowledge.

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

We may call it something else.

00:05:34 --> 00:05:44

We may call it information. They have a lot of information about Islam. They know so much about Islam but is it knowledge?

00:05:45 --> 00:05:52

Knowledge leads to Allah in an actual Allah mineraI Badie He Allah rolana

00:05:54 --> 00:05:58

The only ones who fear Allah are the ones with knowledge,

00:05:59 --> 00:06:06

knowledge and fear of Allah go together. If there is no fear of Allah, how can we call that knowledge

00:06:07 --> 00:06:14

of CODA Lavina Allah, Allah moon, maybe they know some things about Islam, but it didn't lead them to Islam.

00:06:16 --> 00:06:22

They don't have knowledge that would lead them to Allah that will lead them to the truth and the guidance of Islam.

00:06:24 --> 00:06:25

Here

00:06:26 --> 00:06:28

there's possibly a reason of revelation as well.

00:06:30 --> 00:06:52

Muhammad Yunus ha Huck narrates on the authority of an ibis in a chain of narration that goes through an ibis for the Allahumma that one of the Jews Raja Rai Milla who we have spoken about before, told the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa select if you are truly a messenger of Allah and as you say,

00:06:53 --> 00:06:57

then get Allah to speak to us.

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

Or show us a sign.

00:07:01 --> 00:07:14

So Allah subhanaw taala revealed the Ayah or Cardinal de la Allah Moon Lola you can live on Allah, those who do not have knowledge will say, Why doesn't Allah speak to a socialist society?

00:07:17 --> 00:07:24

Even Buddha hint insists that here in Medina Allah Allah rune are the Christians

00:07:27 --> 00:07:28

Lima Tabari

00:07:30 --> 00:07:32

is firmly in support of that opinion

00:07:34 --> 00:07:41

Imam but Tada and Arabia say that this is the pagan Arabs

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

This is a reference to the pagan Arabs notice after that Lola you can leave when Allah Tina area cuz early Katana Latina Min cobbly He Mithila called him

00:07:57 --> 00:08:01

the ones before them will say the exact that said the exact same thing.

00:08:03 --> 00:08:10

So if it was the pagan Arabs, there were many people before them who said it.

00:08:12 --> 00:08:22

If it was the Christians, the Jews said it before them. If it was the Jews rasa I've been for a MILA is saying this to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:08:23 --> 00:08:25

It was his ancestors who said it.

00:08:27 --> 00:08:44

And they said worse than let Allah speak to us. They said show us Allah. Allahu Akbar. They said to Musa alayhis salam in Allah hija Hara show us Allah directly. Mo acaba.

00:08:46 --> 00:08:57

So cada Lika Karna, Latina Minko Billiken, Mr Nakamura, Him, those who do not have knowledge are saying this now to you. Man up people have said it before.

00:08:58 --> 00:09:22

Whatever it is, if it is the Jews of the time of the Prophet SAW Selim or the Christians or the pagan Arabs, someone said it before this has been happening throughout history. People are asking for science and maybe even asking to see Allah or to hear Allah subhanho wa Taala Latina, Pamela hem Mithila Kamala him. Tasha had Kulu

00:09:23 --> 00:09:27

it's the same story over and over.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:34

It's the same thing. They are repeating the same arguments

00:09:36 --> 00:09:48

they have the same ideas and emotions. That's why he said tertia ahead, Polo. Boom. And for those of you reading the Quran, why don't you have your most half

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

can I get Paladin? I mean, Abilene you close the now

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

delicate Paladin club in a Missoula County.

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

to him what is above him there's something

00:10:08 --> 00:10:11

there's a letter above Mithila cola him

00:10:13 --> 00:10:15

is a mean what does that mean mean

00:10:21 --> 00:10:29

walk walk of logic that you must stop there. Why? Arab speakers

00:10:35 --> 00:10:37

looking at the Arabs in the audience

00:10:39 --> 00:10:46

I'm sorry I'm sure some of you may know Arabic but you're not Arab. So you are also being asked. Yeah.

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

Okay.

00:10:52 --> 00:10:54

And the meaning right the meaning

00:10:55 --> 00:11:11

will not be correct if you continue. If you say goodbye Lika Kira Lavina min Avila he Mithila cobbly Hinta Shabbat Kulu boo. It might be understood as they said the same thing those before them said the same thing.

00:11:12 --> 00:11:26

The Shabbat Shalom whoo hoo that their hearts are similar as if what they said was the Shabbat boo boo Mithila. Cowley. Hinta Shabbat PROLOGO. No,

00:11:27 --> 00:11:42

the sentence ends at Mithila holy him. This is what people said before, then Allah is telling us, Tasha had onobu, whom their hearts resemble one another.

00:11:44 --> 00:11:54

To share that their hearts are so similar to one another. The hearts and minds are essentially the same.

00:11:55 --> 00:12:10

Go back many, many centuries. It's the same cover the same mockery. The same arguments, the same mentality Tushar that puluh go home.

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

When their hearts and minds are similar.

00:12:17 --> 00:12:19

The arguments will be the same.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:26

When the disbelief is the same, the kinds of things they will say will be the same.

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

Tasha that booboo

00:12:32 --> 00:12:36

for the yen at least how me you can when

00:12:39 --> 00:12:44

is it wrong to request asylum?

00:12:48 --> 00:12:52

Has anyone here asked for asylum? Raise your hand?

00:12:54 --> 00:12:55

No.

00:12:56 --> 00:13:05

Anybody here not born Muslim if you don't mind mentioning that. Everybody here was born a Muslim? No reverts.

00:13:10 --> 00:13:15

There are no everyone was born Muslim. Mashallah. Alhamdulillah

00:13:21 --> 00:13:24

Yeah, well, that's why we said revert. Right?

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

So

00:13:27 --> 00:13:36

the pagan Arabs? Did they ask for science of the Prophet? SallAllahu wasallam. Well, according to the IEA they did

00:13:37 --> 00:13:39

that did they ask for a sign?

00:13:40 --> 00:13:45

The Quran tells us that they have asked me for many sides. Yes.

00:13:46 --> 00:13:50

Ah, they asked for the splitting of the moon.

00:13:53 --> 00:13:56

They asked for that. They said split the moon for us.

00:13:57 --> 00:14:00

There is a narration like this but it is weak.

00:14:01 --> 00:14:24

The authentic narration is they said show us a sign. It wasn't specific. So the Prophet SAW Selim said witness the sign that you requested. And Allah had split them. Yes. Okay. The requested signs from the prophets are similar and a lot of times it was mockery. And Allah subhanaw taala would not give it to them.

00:14:26 --> 00:14:44

They also asked that he turned my sofa into gold. Right? And the Prophet SAW Selim said, had they been given it, that idea and then they disbelieved they would have been destroyed as Allah subhanaw taala has done with many of the nations before.

00:14:46 --> 00:14:51

So you will find that throughout history people have been asking for science.

00:14:53 --> 00:14:55

The punishment of Allah comes

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

when they asked for a specific sign

00:15:01 --> 00:15:11

That is a common sign that everyone can see. And then they disbelieve, then they will be punished when they ask for this sign.

00:15:14 --> 00:15:22

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh Allah don't show us the signs. Because if they disbelieved they would have been destroyed.

00:15:24 --> 00:15:32

The splitting of the moon is different. Because they didn't ask for a specific sign. They just said, Show us a sign. And Allah showed them the sign.

00:15:33 --> 00:15:39

But it's very interesting. That scores of reverts today

00:15:41 --> 00:15:44

asked for a sign before they became Muslim.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:47

Have you heard this?

00:15:49 --> 00:15:50

Scores?

00:15:52 --> 00:15:53

Very interesting.

00:15:55 --> 00:16:14

And it seems in almost every situation, Allah gave them the sign that they were asking for, or a sign that made them understand that this is the truth and they became Muslim Subhana carob the cow kind Allah subhanho wa Taala is

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

to how is this different than wacana Levine Allah Allah Moon level now you can live on Allah, Tina Aya

00:16:24 --> 00:16:33

Well, for one, if they became Muslim, after Allah subhanaw taala showed them what he showed them, it is clear that they were sincere.

00:16:35 --> 00:16:47

They're not mocking they want to see a sign. Okay, but what about them, they wanted to see a sign as well. Well, if they were sincere, maybe Allah shoulda resign.

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

But there is a fundamental difference.

00:16:53 --> 00:16:56

At the time of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.

00:16:57 --> 00:17:06

These people lived with him. And they saw some of the tangible miracles and signs that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did.

00:17:08 --> 00:17:19

Things that are other than the Quran, the Quran is the ultimate miracle, the ultimate sign, right. But there were other things, so many things that the prophets Allah had done.

00:17:22 --> 00:17:24

And they may have seen some of this.

00:17:25 --> 00:17:30

So they have already seen signs of his truthfulness.

00:17:32 --> 00:17:36

Furthermore, they were Arabs.

00:17:37 --> 00:17:46

They were staunch Arabs, their language was 100 times better than our Arabic language.

00:17:48 --> 00:18:13

Compared to them, we are like foreigners, we're like non Arabs, I'm talking about myself, the Arabs compared to them, right. So when they heard the Quran and understood it, they knew without a shadow of a doubt, this is these are the words of Allah. This is not the word of a human being. This is not some poet that we've never heard of before. This is on another level.

00:18:14 --> 00:18:16

So this was the ultimate sign for them.

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

But for many of the reports of today

00:18:23 --> 00:18:26

they didn't see the Prophet SAW Salem.

00:18:27 --> 00:18:32

They weren't able to witness some of those signs and miracles. Maybe they don't even speak Arabic.

00:18:34 --> 00:18:36

So many of the reports do not.

00:18:38 --> 00:18:41

And maybe they read the Quran, but they read it in translation.

00:18:42 --> 00:18:52

The Quran is a sign of course, and some of them would read some verses in the Quran. And that was enough. But for some, they wanted something more.

00:18:53 --> 00:18:55

They wanted to see something,

00:18:56 --> 00:19:08

a sign, they felt that this is the truth, but they needed that push. So between them and Allah, they didn't tell me are you? They told me after the wisdom,

00:19:09 --> 00:19:17

but before between them and Allah, Oh God, if you are there, and if this is the truth, show me a sign

00:19:18 --> 00:19:25

and they see a sign. Allah shows them something that they understood to be a sign and they became Muslim Allah.

00:19:26 --> 00:19:27

This is the difference

00:19:29 --> 00:19:30

between that phenomenon

00:19:31 --> 00:19:38

that we are seeing today, and we'll call a Latina lair level Lola you can live on hola Oh, Tina, Aya

00:19:39 --> 00:19:57

This is chastisement of those for their mockery of Allah azza wa jal and asking for a sign when they didn't need a sign when they've seen all signs and enough signs, and Allah has told us in many places in the Quran, if they see every sign,

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

they will continue to disbelieve.

00:20:01 --> 00:20:06

No Latina Hakata halogen Kennametal rhombic let me know what

00:20:08 --> 00:20:10

is your role other than

00:20:12 --> 00:20:15

those people if they see every sign

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

they will continue to disbelief

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

so it tells you the problem is with them.

00:20:24 --> 00:20:42

The Sherpa had Kulu boom don't think oh this is completely different today. No no no no. Because Erica Allah Lavina mean Kabila he miss La, Tasha but it's the same story all over again. It's the same hearts the same minds. same arguments.

00:20:43 --> 00:20:56

Cordova Yan tilicho. Me UK noon, we have indeed, clarified me the science clear to people who have you again who have certainty in faith.

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

You may say?

00:21:03 --> 00:21:06

Do you get certainty after the science?

00:21:08 --> 00:21:10

Or do you have certainty before the science?

00:21:11 --> 00:21:12

Notice

00:21:13 --> 00:21:22

that we have made clear the if the signs for people who have your cane who have certainty they follow me you can.

00:21:24 --> 00:21:25

So which one comes first?

00:21:28 --> 00:21:29

The certainty or the sign?

00:21:33 --> 00:21:35

Just based on what you're reading?

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

Right?

00:21:44 --> 00:21:48

We have shown those signs to people who have that certainty.

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

Does that mean that we believe in blind faith? No. We said over and over we as Muslims do not believe in blind faith, close your eyes and just believe no.

00:22:01 --> 00:22:04

But Allah is telling us that these people

00:22:05 --> 00:22:14

already have your keen uncertainty, already have an inclination, or propensity towards belief.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:18

And then the idea comes and

00:22:19 --> 00:22:21

consolidates that email,

00:22:23 --> 00:22:34

as opposed to the other type, who are mocking and asking for the idea. And even when the idea comes, they're not going to believe if the idea does come.

00:22:35 --> 00:22:36

They're not going to believe

00:22:38 --> 00:22:45

if they see the angels, as Allah said, If the dead are brought to life, they will not believe.

00:22:47 --> 00:22:51

So it means yes, there is something there.

00:22:52 --> 00:22:55

And that's what is interacting with the sign.

00:22:56 --> 00:23:06

So if they already have that, and Allah knows they are not going to believe and they will continue that way. Even if they see it every time they will not believe so don't worry.

00:23:08 --> 00:23:16

At the urinal if they come to me, you can moon. Allah has made clear the science.

00:23:17 --> 00:23:21

The signs were clear in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he was

00:23:22 --> 00:23:27

and could not be anything but a bonafide prophet of Allah.

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

It was clear to them. We know the stories of the pagans listening to the Quran, of the Jews, in secret telling each other. This is the prophet that we were promised. none other but him.

00:23:45 --> 00:23:49

And yet, they disbelieved. So they saw those signs.

00:23:51 --> 00:24:11

The people of the other prophets peace be upon them all. They saw a sign, they asked for a sign Allah gave it to them. They saw the signs or the yen, yet the Prophet SAW send them send in the authentic hadith that every prophet was given. Some sign some air

00:24:12 --> 00:24:14

through which people believed.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:22

Of course, the ultimate sign of the prophets of salaam was the Quran. Why?

00:24:23 --> 00:24:28

Why was it only those limited miracles?

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

Blessing the food and water, water coming out of his hands and fingers and speaking to inanimate objects. Why was it only those miracles brothers and sisters?

00:24:44 --> 00:24:59

Yes, tell me one of the youth. Forget the old people. Tell me why was it? Why is the Quran the ultimate miracle? And not limited to those miracles that happened during the time of the Prophet SAW Selim.

00:25:03 --> 00:25:04

Put the youth on the spot

00:25:09 --> 00:25:10

difficult one Yes Mother

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

again

00:25:19 --> 00:25:20

High School

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

has multiple.

00:25:28 --> 00:25:31

Okay, okay, very nice. Think about

00:25:32 --> 00:25:37

the size of the time of the Prophet SAW Selim as being limited to that time.

00:25:39 --> 00:25:40

Yes

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

hold some of the older generation knows,

00:25:50 --> 00:26:04

of course, has to be the everlasting miracle because there's no other prophet, because Mohammed salah, Salah is the seal of the prophets, right? And Islam is the religion until the day of judgment. So there has to be

00:26:05 --> 00:26:15

a everlasting sign that renews itself. So it must be the Quran, the intellectual miracle.

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

Right? And then we get into the issue of ages and inevitability of the Quran and so on, especially scientific changes that we see today as well.

00:26:28 --> 00:26:29

So

00:26:30 --> 00:26:46

we're we're we go the Yunel is how me you can we have shown clear signs, there are clear signs, if they were really to believe if they had their key, but these people will not believe.

00:26:47 --> 00:27:06

So giving them a sign is not going to make them believe. And furthermore, my dear Dahlia, my dear caller to Allah, my dear, committed member of St. Dawa. If you give them every amazing argument,

00:27:08 --> 00:27:12

and they are of that type, they are not going to believe.

00:27:14 --> 00:27:20

More encouragement to say it like it is.

00:27:21 --> 00:27:35

Of course, in all cases, say it like it is. Don't ever play around with the word of Allah just because you think yes, I can convince them. If they are that type, they're not going to be convinced.

00:27:37 --> 00:27:52

If you bring the dead to life, they will not believe they will say that something else you have done some magic, much less to believe in your beautifully ornamented arguments. Okay. This is not to say that you should

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

do the hour in the best way with wisdom and good speech and good arguments. But it is to say that

00:28:01 --> 00:28:04

there are some people Subhanallah who are of this type.

00:28:06 --> 00:28:13

Show them every site and they will not believe. Then Allah subhanaw taala said in Seneca Bill

00:28:14 --> 00:28:18

beshear are one of the era while I was having

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

it indeed We have sent you with truth sent the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with truth. This kind of confirmation is was very important to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam

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

and to everyone with him, and to everyone who will come after him.

00:28:41 --> 00:28:47

Especially to him Ali salatu salam because he is the one who is involved in the Dawa, not you and me.

00:28:48 --> 00:29:03

And I assume a lot of us have not experienced 1/10 of what the Prophet sallallahu wasallam experienced in his Dawa for several reasons. Number one, we simply haven't been put in that position.

00:29:04 --> 00:29:50

We haven't done as much Dawa as him. Number two and it is self evident is that he is the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So it is very different when he's doing the hour and someone refuses. If I go out and I do that one I call this guy or person to Allah and they refuse, okay, you know what else to do? There's no other option. But this is the prophet had he said to Salem during the hour, you are refusing the messenger. Furthermore, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam wants nothing more than for them to become Muslim. He is living his life now is these 23 years of life that are left just to guide these people.

00:29:52 --> 00:29:58

And he has so much hope that they will become Muslim

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

To the extent and it is mind boggling that Allah would tell him are you going to kill yourself if they don't become Muslim?

00:30:12 --> 00:30:38

That's how much the Prophet sallallahu wasallam wanted them to become Muslim when he's doing the dour. Believe me, I'm not going to kill myself if the person I'm talking to is not going to become Muslim, or doesn't accept what I'm saying, or even mocks me but for the proselytize Salatu Salam is different, because he is the prophets of salaam Number one, he loves for him, his brother's, what he loves, for his own self,

00:30:40 --> 00:30:43

love for humanity to be guided to be saved.

00:30:45 --> 00:30:48

And furthermore, he is the Prophet alayhi salatu salam

00:30:50 --> 00:30:59

This is his life, this is his message. So it would be very, very hard on him when they would reject.

00:31:01 --> 00:31:08

So then, the idea comes and conference in Santa Clara will have

00:31:10 --> 00:31:23

never doubt if they throw every argument at you and try to make you doubt yourself and Mark and physically abuse you when they that's what they did to him Ali salatu salam as well.

00:31:25 --> 00:31:29

In Santa Clara will have the shear of one of the era.

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

And this description is also in the Torah.

00:31:35 --> 00:31:42

As in the authentic hadith, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is described as an Bashir in the

00:31:43 --> 00:31:46

a giver of glad tiding and a warner.

00:31:50 --> 00:31:54

Long, interesting Hadith with other descriptions as well

00:31:56 --> 00:32:14

in Ansel natca Bill happy, mushy Ron when Avira so in other words, you are just the giver of glad tidings for those who accept your message. And a warner to those who do not, let's say, you cannot guide them. You're their guidance is not in your hand. Their hearts and minds

00:32:15 --> 00:32:18

is not in your hands. It's not up to you.

00:32:19 --> 00:32:33

You cannot do anything about it. You can only convey the message in the best way and then if they accepted fine, they do not. It's their loss. It's not yours or ours. It's their loss

00:32:34 --> 00:32:42

in Santa club unhappy, the sheet from 101 to us having Jehane

00:32:43 --> 00:32:49

further comforting for him. You will not be asked about the people of the Hellfire.

00:32:50 --> 00:32:51

Subhanallah

00:32:53 --> 00:33:00

you will not be asked about. He didn't say the Cofer, he said the people of the Hellfire He already said

00:33:01 --> 00:33:11

the people of the Hellfire you are not going to be asked about those who rejected and thus deserved the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala as Allah is not going to ask you,

00:33:12 --> 00:33:14

because you have done your job.

00:33:15 --> 00:33:16

You are not responsible.

00:33:18 --> 00:33:26

You have done all that you can. So it has lifted that burden from the heart of the prophets of Allah Lucinda, well, as

00:33:27 --> 00:33:32

well as Harvey, and Jane. Can you imagine

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

a disbeliever

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

reading this idea that is talking about him in the third person. Allah is not addressing them, he's talking about them and the third person.

00:33:48 --> 00:33:52

Indeed, We have sent you with truth or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:33:54 --> 00:34:00

as a giver of glad tidings and a warner and you will not be asked about the people of the Hellfire.

00:34:02 --> 00:34:11

And then maybe that person thinks, oh my god, this is talking about me. If I do not believe, if they have

00:34:12 --> 00:34:15

that inclination to Iman,

00:34:16 --> 00:34:18

it will shake their heart.

00:34:22 --> 00:34:33

And this is the the wisdom behind verses like this in addition to comforting the Prophet sallallahu sallam, this is the Dawa to people

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

when they read these ayat

00:34:37 --> 00:34:41

it shakes them in a way maybe your arguments will not

00:34:42 --> 00:34:56

because this is God speaking to them. They don't believe yet. But this is possibly God speaking and saying you will not be asked about the people of the Hellfire don't worry about them.

00:34:58 --> 00:34:59

Allah subhanaw taala is in charge

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

Ah

00:35:03 --> 00:35:05

but that's the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:35:08 --> 00:35:11

But we have a responsibility as well.

00:35:13 --> 00:35:18

Because we are the followers of the prophets of Salaam. We are the owner of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Yes.

00:35:19 --> 00:35:22

We have a responsibility to Dawa as well.

00:35:24 --> 00:35:28

Will we be asked about the people of the Hellfire

00:35:31 --> 00:35:33

if we haven't done our job,

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

maybe

00:35:38 --> 00:36:19

the Prophet sallallahu wasallam it's a guarantee, he has done his job. And at the end, he looked at his people. And he said, Have I conveyed the message? And they said, Yes. And he said, Oh, Allah, bear witness, I have done my job, he always had that burden. I have this job, I have to complete it in the best way is the messenger of Allah. This is not some employer that you're working for for a few years and then you say bye bye and you give the resignation. This is the ultimate job and the one who put you in that position is Allah himself.

00:36:20 --> 00:36:23

So he said Have I conveyed the message?

00:36:24 --> 00:36:27

But if you and I fail,

00:36:29 --> 00:36:33

especially for people around us, maybe people we know

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

maybe we will be asked

00:36:38 --> 00:36:42

because we did not convey the message. Because we are all

00:36:44 --> 00:36:48

callers to Allah in our own right if you know one area

00:36:49 --> 00:36:54

that you are able to convey by liquid honey when the prophets are send themselves

00:36:56 --> 00:37:00

convey my message even if it is one verse of the Quran.

00:37:01 --> 00:37:11

And I'm sure Alhamdulillah mashallah, you have been attending so many classes and you've been attending this stuff soon as well. So you know a lot about so many.

00:37:14 --> 00:37:18

called people to Allah subhanaw taala Do not be selfish with Islam.

00:37:20 --> 00:37:33

Be selfish with other things, not with Islam. Islam is to be conveyed. How can the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be the messenger to all of humanity when he died?

00:37:38 --> 00:37:39

The Prophet SAW Selim died.

00:37:41 --> 00:37:47

How is he a messenger to all of humanity? Allah says that He sent him to all humanity

00:37:50 --> 00:37:51

because of us,

00:37:52 --> 00:37:57

because of everyone that's going to convey the message after him

00:37:58 --> 00:38:00

that responsibility to dharma

00:38:01 --> 00:38:03

whether to us Harbinger him

00:38:06 --> 00:38:07

in another

00:38:08 --> 00:38:13

era, which is mortality era of the 10 mutawatir.

00:38:15 --> 00:38:18

The era of NASA and Yahoo.

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

Wala tests en us Harbinger.

00:38:26 --> 00:38:47

Well as a lot of us have, which I do not ask, it's a prohibition instead, when you will not be asked in the passive voice here when I was having Jehane. So do not ask about the people of the Hellfire. In other words, don't worry.

00:38:48 --> 00:38:55

Don't ask about them. Why? Because that was the character of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he's always worried

00:38:57 --> 00:39:10

about the people about his companions about his friends about the Ummah, what did they do? He's always asking. He's asking about the people where it's so and so we didn't see it in the Salah today.

00:39:11 --> 00:39:25

Now it's like well, none of your business, but no then the prompts are selling would ask, when such and such. What happened to this person? He asked German about his debt.

00:39:30 --> 00:39:43

What is it to him of German paintings that are not only Allah Allah, the Prophet SAW Selim is telling the Sahaba let's go and help Jabil with his death with whom

00:39:44 --> 00:39:51

the person who belonged to him, was insisting on getting his money back. The Prophet SAW Selim would ask he was worried.

00:39:53 --> 00:39:55

He wants the people to accept Islam.

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

So that Allah subhanaw taala tells him what tests

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

as having James so do not ask about the people or the hellfire. Don't worry.

00:40:05 --> 00:40:06

It's not on you.

00:40:07 --> 00:40:09

Don't ask about that. Don't worry.

00:40:12 --> 00:40:18

Just conveyed the message, the truth that you have been given. give glad tidings

00:40:19 --> 00:40:20

and warm.

00:40:21 --> 00:40:26

Hello. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola are SallAllahu wasallam Oba Colin me and Emma

00:40:38 --> 00:40:41

I want to say that no, not everybody has that. Yes.

00:40:43 --> 00:40:44

That's my thing.

00:40:46 --> 00:40:47

And then one other

00:40:48 --> 00:40:49

thing about

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

sugar who became Yes.

00:40:54 --> 00:40:57

Yes. So these are the character I can start

00:41:02 --> 00:41:04

working with non religious

00:41:05 --> 00:41:09

and some of them very good. They observe

00:41:10 --> 00:41:13

the way you behave, the honesty.

00:41:14 --> 00:41:17

And even one of them. I was in Saudi at the time

00:41:20 --> 00:41:23

I was asked how

00:41:26 --> 00:41:31

what what attractions along with Islam? So the answer that he gave me is just like,

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

blew you away.

00:41:34 --> 00:41:36

He said that, you know, like I

00:41:37 --> 00:41:39

observed the Muslim people

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

with a brother's coalition as

00:41:43 --> 00:41:48

a friend working with a Malaysian resident in all honesty.

00:41:50 --> 00:41:54

Fat guy, he's a boss, the guy is a boss, he's the one okay.

00:41:56 --> 00:41:58

So, these are tools that we use.

00:41:59 --> 00:42:01

The thing that also as

00:42:03 --> 00:42:09

I said that, you know, like, we always say that, you know, lead by example that we behave

00:42:10 --> 00:42:14

in a society, so can show the impact?

00:42:17 --> 00:42:19

Absolutely. Does that alone, Kayla.

00:42:20 --> 00:42:35

First of all, this is a very nice story. And hamdulillah Shala. We hear a lot more stories like this, because we have heard the opposite. We have heard those who have come to Islam, who said I Hamdulillah that Allah showed me Islam before showing me the Muslims.

00:42:37 --> 00:42:39

We have heard the opposite.

00:42:40 --> 00:43:29

So this is very nice. This is someone who is becoming Muslim, just based on and observing the character of some Muslims in his midst. This is very nice. Of course, for some people, that's not enough. For some people, they might Sharia, they have very good character, but you know, that doesn't convince me to enter into the religion. So they would need a lot more in this person's case. That was enough. That was good. That's great. And hamdulillah Allah guided? And you're absolutely right. It's a very important aspect of our Dawa. To do so with our character as well not just verbally, absolutely. And maybe a lot of to add or commerce to Allah, they are saying one thing, but

00:43:29 --> 00:44:07

their character betrays something else, right. And it can be very confusing for non Muslims and maybe to some Muslims as well. Right. So and this is a big problem, that dichotomy between character and religiosity, right, between o'clock manners, and faith. And I have spoken about this extensively as two diametrically opposite phenomenon, character without religiosity, and really religiously without character, and you will find those two videos here inshallah.

00:44:10 --> 00:44:12

So, in this person's case,

00:44:14 --> 00:44:43

he saw this and that was enough, that is great. And maybe for some people, as you just said, maybe they don't really know how to call people to Allah to do that. Or maybe they're shy. So if they have very good character may exemplify good character, the character of the province I will select this is excellent. This is definitely a form of Dawa. But as we said, conveying what is not difficult and

00:44:46 --> 00:44:49

to just get the children to lower their voices.

00:44:52 --> 00:44:53

What was I trying to say?

00:44:57 --> 00:44:59

Dharma doesn't have to be complex.

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

When,

00:45:02 --> 00:45:09

in fact, a lot of times the non Muslims will take you places

00:45:11 --> 00:45:24

that you should not go in the sense that this is not what's important for them. So, typical questions will be polygamy for wives, yes.

00:45:25 --> 00:45:26

Yeah.

00:45:27 --> 00:45:36

Terrorism, and God knows what. And guess what, none of this will be asked on the Day of Judgment, why did you not practice polygamy? Why did you not?

00:45:37 --> 00:45:41

You know, do this or do that, but they will be asked, Who is your Lord?

00:45:42 --> 00:45:47

Did you worship Him? The way you won't be asked either if you married four wives.

00:45:49 --> 00:45:52

Otherwise, it'd be in trouble. So

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

they will be asked, Who's your Lord? Did you believe in the prophet that I sent?

00:46:01 --> 00:46:15

The religion? Right? So a lot of times, the job of the Daya is to explain these fairly basic things. Fundamental but basic, okay. And

00:46:16 --> 00:46:21

basic for us, but very eye opening for them.

00:46:23 --> 00:46:48

The simple idea that we worship God alone, and we don't associate any partners with him, we ascribe nothing to him. He is unique. He is the transcendent. He is nothing like his creatures, right? The perfection of Allah subhanaw taala. This is something revolutionary for them. People talking about God, as if he is

00:46:49 --> 00:47:38

an idol on a temple drawn or sculpted, or Jesus or human being or a tree or a plant or an animal, people worshipped animals as gods. So when you come with this simple idea of the perfection of Allah, this is revolutionary brother for them. You have to know this, when you saying, I don't only believe in Mohamed, and it's not hard to 100 in Islam. That's what they used to call it. Right for so long in history, because that's what they will use to for the religion is based on the personality of the religion Mohammedanism. Christianity, okay? Or maybe they would call it mosaicism. That case? So you tell them no, we believe in all of the prophets of Allah, we believe in

00:47:38 --> 00:48:10

Jesus, we believe in Moses, please me upon them all. And you go back in that chain, and David and Solomon and job and Joseph and Abraham, this is revolutionary, who's talking about this. And this is all, many of them need to accept Islam. This is what they're looking for. The clear answers the cogent argument about the truth. And especially that has to do with the belief system, right? So

00:48:12 --> 00:48:16

you don't have to be a scholar to explain some of those sympathies.

00:48:17 --> 00:48:26

But definitely, you should supplement it with good character. And if those seem contradictory, that poses a very big problem.

00:48:27 --> 00:48:29

And some people know

00:48:30 --> 00:48:31

a lot about Islam already.

00:48:32 --> 00:48:55

Now, this is the negative image. They know a lot about Islam already. And maybe they will tell you more about the beauty of Islam than you know. So they will tell you it's all in the books. It's in theory. I want to see it in practice. Look at your countries. Look at the situation of the Muslims. Look at what's happening, right.

00:48:57 --> 00:49:00

That's why the importance of the practical example

00:49:01 --> 00:49:05

and real life model to show them this is Islam.

00:49:08 --> 00:49:09

And he's given us

00:49:13 --> 00:49:15

not everyone can smell the food,

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

but a lot of people
