Sanliurfa holy I praise Allah Almighty.
And I said prayers and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam single 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 has no knowledge of we accept that which you have taught us Indeed you are the All Knowing the all wise My dear brothers and sisters, As Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Hope everyone is doing well in sha Allah. So, we continue with the Tafseer of Sudha to Bukhara.
And we got to the following verses Allah subhanaw taala says about the origins Smilla Rahmanir Rahim
will either have to Ilana whom you know will be man or Paulo, meno V. Zilla Arlen
funa Bhima all who have said they are Lima
will fairly Metapod to Luna
law hit me or bother in going to meaning.
Allah subhanaw taala is still telling us about the
position of the Jews at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam still telling us about how
they were commanded about certain things, what their reaction was.
In the last
session, we talked about the vs. Where Allah subhanaw taala was chastising them because
they did not believe in what came to them. And what Allah subhanaw taala or rather what Allah subhanaw taala revealed to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is the Quran, which is confirming that which they already have. And we spoke about this. And they used to pray
for the coming of the prophets, Allah Allah Allah wa salam and that they were going to be victorious over the pagan Arabs along with this prophet who was going to support them. And then the next is talking about their envy, their envy and Hassan and almost as if they wanted to control who Allah azza wa jal
chooses for the final message or not. And when it wasn't from Bani Israel, they refused to follow him.
Similarly, now, why are you the key let me know if it is said to them, Believe in what Allah subhanaw taala sent down, meaning the Quran
what Allah azza wa jal revealed to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Now he's talking to the Jews at the time of the prophet or send them in Medina, if it is said to them believe in this book, which was brought down.
And it is also a confirmation
of what you have. So it is not something completely different. And therefore it should make it relatively easy to follow.
There might be slight differences here and there, as we said, because of the difference in the Sharia. But otherwise, in the fundamentals, all religions are the same. Technically, we don't call them religions we call them Shara Al. Sharia has the religion of Allah is one in Medina and Allah in Islam. That's it. The what we talk about is the Sharia. But even then, the fundamentals are the same. The Creed must be the same. There is no way it's different. Then you talk about the fundamentals of the religion as well as the Sharia. Do you have one religion telling you to steal and the other one Sharia and the other Sharia are telling you not to steal? No. So you have those
similarities when it comes to a by that they all have prayer and Zakat and fasting and heritage, right. So the similarities are there the fundamentals are there.
why don't we manage and Allah odd who no need to be my own Zerah Hi Lena, I work for Runa Bhima.
So their response to believe in what Allah sent down? The response is, we believe in what came to us.
Think about that for a second.
If they are being called hypothetically, if they are being called to a false religion and a false prophet
is it blameworthy or praiseworthy? That they are clinging on to what was given to them?
It is praiseworthy in that case. Right? So they say that we believe in what has been brought down to us.
If we were called
to a new religion, a false prophet,
we refuse it we reject it, of course.
Is it going to be in accordance to what we have and confirming what we have? Of course not, because it's gonna be from a false prophet because the last of the prophets, their seal is Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
But now, you look for Runa Bhima. They they say we believe in what was given to us, where Karuna Bhima wha wha hoo. What happened was Sunday.
So this is the problem. They say weed. they disbelieve, rather, they will disbelieve in what came after that, after the Torah,
even though it is the truth, and it is confirming what they have. So it's a very different comparison.
And we talked a lot about how they knew. And we're sure that he was the prophets, Allah Selim that was sent, and how they were told, and given his description, they believed in Him and they knew he was the seal, and he was the one who was promised and yet they rejected so it's very different. You see, so it's not praiseworthy, that they said, We only believe in what was given to us.
Furthermore, the Quran is clear
Allah subhanaw taala sent many prophets
and sometimes a prophet will come after another one.
What if another prophet comes concurrently with the one before?
What is the job of the Prophet?
I have earlier Imran is clear. Allah subhanaw taala took a covenant from all of the prophets, that if another prophet work to come after you,
and clearly it is he's going to be concurrent, because he took the covenant that if a prophet comes after you, confirming what you have,
what is the obligation upon you, let me know Nabi while at tongues Runa. Allah occur tomorrow Hearthstone,
So Allah subhanaw taala took the covenant from them, if the other prophet was going to come, it is an obligation upon the former prophet to believe in Him and to support and aid him.
So it is not simply, oh, we just believe in what was brought down to us no, doesn't work that way. This is the truth and you will know it and you are rejecting it. And it's a confirmation of what you have. What will happen on Sunday.
Of course, as they said, We only believe in what was brought down to us
and they apparently stipulated that the prophet should have been from them as well.
What is the
appropriate response that Allah subhanaw taala is teaching them to say to them, or Muhammad sallallaahu Selim, Selim limit talk to Luna and Allah
say to them, then why do you kill the prophets of Allah?
It's a very strong response. Okay.
So we're going to accept your response you only take and you only believe in what was given to you the Torah. So why are you killing the prophets? Why did you kill the Prophet
Before, if you are indeed believers, is that what the Torah commanded?
The Torah commanded you to kill the prophets? Or did they come confirming the Torah which you are claiming you only believe in the Torah? Why did you kill the prophets then? So now from here
to the end of the page, you see that the response is based on this tall claim that they are making. We only believe in what was brought down to us, it's an egregious claim, because they violated that so many times. So that's why you will see the response all throughout, even if there is some repetition of the previous arguments and stories, because this is the ultimate argument. So first of all, why do you kill the prophets of Allah, we talked about killing of the prophets of Allah, how
they attempted to kill some, like in the US, the Elijah, and how they actually killed some some according to their own Bible, like Isaiah and Jeremiah and Ezekiel, and others, and we know that they killed Zakariya and Yahia either he must Salem and they attempted to kill, or ISA Allah, His salah, and they may have killed so many more than we don't know about.
They killed the prophets of Allah, why do you kill the prophets of Allah? If you are truthful about your claim that you believe only in what was brought down to you notice now
say to them, fell in the truck to Luna Anbiya Allah, many others before? If you are indeed believers, notice the tents.
Notice the tents
fulfill Lima, Taka to Luna Anbiya Allah, duck to Luna and be Allah present.
And be Allah mil Colin
Mirkovic becomes past, right. So that's why technically the translation is. So why do you kill
the prophets of Allah, but actually they killed the prophets of Allah. Here. Again, it's coming in the present. We saw this before, right? But here, he says mean oven. It's clearly talking about the past.
But it says fairly metaxalone.
I'm trying to get the timeframe between
the the President and
House or something like that over 1000. It's not absolutely set in stone. There is no clear information, according to authentic Islamic texts. So some of this information comes from the Bible. Okay, let's be clear on that. But this is approximately what it is. And this is what you may find, let's say
even Cathy's talking about the stories of the prophets, talking about an approximate timeframe of 1200 years or something like that. Yeah. We know there's about 600 years between the prophets of Salaam and Hasani salaam, yeah. Okay. So now he says call for Lima. Talk to Luna and BIA Allah.
Even a three year the famous Mufasa says that here he is mentioning the future.
In a place where Actually what happened is in the past, something that already happened in the past. What does that or what do we benefit from that? It's almost as if something is continuing. It means it is continuing. You did in the past.
You either you're still doing it now or it seems like you're doing it now. We know Subhan Allah they attempted to kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And indeed, part of why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam died is because of the poison of the Jewish woman. Okay.
even healthier says, Do you not see that those who were concurrent who were in the presence of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam on the Jews were pleased and did not refuse the actions of their ancestors in killing the Prophet and therefore, it is almost as if they also
were complicit to a certain extent,
in their killing. So he sent for limb attack to loom.
Furthermore, when you use the present tense, it puts you in that atmosphere, it almost makes you feel like it's still happening.
And indeed, all of their rejection. It's almost like the killing of the prophets. It's still right there. It's such an evil and reprehensible crime, that it is still right there in front of them. And you are claiming, we only believe in that which was sent down to us. So why do you then kill the prophets before that? If you are indeed believers?
So now it continues. Now you see the repetition? Well, the other cool moves have been begging.
So he's still answering them. But now, what is in the beginning, he tells the prophets or send them what to say, gonna say to them this, now Allah is addressing them. While Khadija could be speaking to them. He's answering their ridiculous claim. We only believe in what was given to us, while
Musa came to you with the clear signs and proofs. And the move a city mentioned, the nine that happened with around such as the to fall buffer, the dam, the flood, and the frogs and the blood and all of those that were mentioned.
But also the miracles that Musa alayhis salam did
right with his hand and the snake, parting the sea.
And of course, what happened with the favors upon Bani Israel in the wilderness afterwards with elmen was Salwa and all of that anger stolen the water.
The unit clear signs and proves mood Sally Ceylon came to you have these clear sides. And Bruce, what was your response?
From the hub to Malaysia? I mean, daddy, that was your response. That was your belief. You worship the calf.
After that, in other words, after you saw the signs, those clear signs is convincing proofs. You went and you worshipped the calf. And we talked a lot about that incident of the worship of the calf. And as we will see,
worshiping the calf is not an excuse.
Nor is it something
that was just kind of done on a whim.
Someone might say oh, that was just a whim that a few of the Israelites did and then they were over it. We will see that that is not the case. So he says well look at the jack Musa Waitemata tomb legend and embody one tamale moon, and you are indeed wrongdoers, you were Valley moon, you practice boldly against yourself. And you were to blame for what you hadn't done.
So this is why the repetition, it's all in reply to that first claim, a ludicrous claim.
So he says,
What is 100 meter?
And remember when we took the covenant from you, we mentioned the covenant many times, the covenant was mentioned many times. This being mentioned again, because of its importance, because Allah subhanaw taala only took that covenant from them after their continuous rejection and disobedience. If you remember the narration of Under Armour and Ben Zaid Islam,
where he mentioned how it happened from the very beginning, when Musa alayhis salam went to Japan a tour and he was conversing with Allah subhanaw taala Allah was giving him a Torah and then after that, it was during that absence that they made the golden calf and they worshipped it. And everything that happened after that.
One incident after another, Allah tells them, obey,
obey the commands of Allah subhanaw taala and they keep rejecting and rejecting and it got to finally, that Allah azza wa jal raised the tour above them
the mountain above their heads while they are looking at it.
Well, one new ANOVA their own behavior and they thought that it was going to fall upon them. Yes. So what is happening
All of these things, it was only finally when the mountain was above their head. And they were told who they were, I think I could
take what we have given you with strength and determination. It was only then that they finally succumbed and capitulated to the Command of Allah.
And indeed, it was through AMITA a covenant
and Eben says it says had they taken it in the beginning? There wouldn't have been a covenant there wouldn't have been a need for a covenant.
So now what is 100 meter?
What is 100 meter cuckoo
for Cocoa moto So, this is why the repetition is answering the claim. What a foreigner fo Hakuna por again, are these the actions of people who truly believe in what was given to them?
For a foreigner fo Kakimoto Hello, Tina.
Smile, take what you have been given.
What we have given you
with strength and determination, take the words of Allah subhanaw taala and his revelation with strength and determination. Don't make it a matter of just in play.
This is something very serious take your religion seriously. Whether or not it
or small here, who here and obey meaning listen and follow what you have been commanded was smell
their response? Ah, loosen Yeah, now wha serene Allahu Akbar. On Santa Ana. Wa Selena. They said
we have heard and we have this obeyed.
Look at the audacity and nerf Santa Ana What are Cena
The mountain is above them. They finally decided to comply. But soon after they went back to their original disobedience and rejection.
Con Sanjana wa Saina. They said, We have heard and we have disobeyed.
The scholars have to have seen different a little bit about this.
What is meant here by
we have heard and we have disobeyed.
An Imam Razi claims that most of them or facility are of the opinion that they actually said, Sanjana, wha Serena? We have heard and we have disobeyed.
Okay. And this was the opinion of many of the facilities including Abu Hassan Al Imam, Al qassimi and others,
that they really said, we have heard and we have disobeyed me, I know what I'll say now, okay. And the argument there is that
you cannot resort to understanding a verse, figuratively
And not understanding according to its conspicuous apparent meaning, unless there is a reason
unless it seems that it cannot be understood.
Through that apparent or conspicuous meaning, the apparent meaning God was assigned and they said, We have heard them you have disobeyed
is that impossible? Impossible.
Can you actually say we have heard and we have disobeyed to challenge the person who's commanded you you can say it,
they have done the worst of the worst as we know. So it is possible. If we are going to resort to a more figurative understanding, there should be a good reason for that. So this is why they memorize the claims most of them are facility are of that opinion, they actually said. So now what I'll say now,
then, there is the other opinion, saying that actually, neither of these were sent.
But rather than what the meaning is
ultimately they heard the Command of Allah subhanaw taala. And what they ended up doing is disobeying that command. Okay?
And because of that, it's almost like they said it, right. So, regardless of whether they said it or not, this is what they did in the end. And what's important is the action. So it's almost as if they actually said it. And then the man will buffer we
cited that opinion. No, he didn't clearly support either one.
A third possibility is that they actually sent Sanjana.
Callooh, Sanjana, they said, We have heard
he said to them, who
was smile, also.
So, they said, we have heard,
but then what did they actually do? they disobeyed wha Serena. And there we would understand it figuratively. They didn't actually say we have disobeyed. But their action was to disobey Allah subhanaw taala.
the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, when he was talking to the Sahaba
in an area that has a remarkable reason of Revelation which we ask Allah to give us life to speak about in sha Allah
the Sahaba found one of the Quranic verses difficult.
We'll see why then inshallah.
Unless you already know it.
So the prophets, Allah wa salam said to them, Do you want to be like the people of the two books 100 kita bein
meaning the Jews and the Christians? Do you want to be like them? Who said send me
who said we have heard and we have disobeyed.
Said no messenger of Allah.
So they said, Send me on our partner.
We have heard and we have obeyed.
So they are the Prophet SAW, Selim seems to be indicating
that this is what they said. Said Maha Serena, we have heard and we have disobeyed. Allah
refers to a very important concept, brothers and sisters, and that is that
the whole idea of of the religion is to hear and then obey.
It's not enough to listen, to hear and to understand, and then to disobey. In fact, it is easier.
And a person's account will be easier if they heard, but they didn't quite understand and that's why they disobeyed.
But to hear, and then to understand, and then to disobey. May Allah forgive us. The whole point is Sanjana, Akana. We have heard and we have obeyed Oh Allah, we hear your commands. And we hear them not we just hear them. Like we hear them in the Quran being recited, we hear them and we understand them.
And we will implement them
and we will make it a part of our lives. This is the journey of a Muslim seminarian, our apana this is what we hope the OMA aspires to Santa Ana Aparna where we actually see it, manifested in the reality of the Ummah
that Muslims have heard and they have obeyed. And this is when in sha Allah the condition will change.
On so now we're gonna
what BUSHIRI will fear Hulu will be himolla Angela be Kufri him.
Another phrase that just sums it all up? Well, who should remove ficolo be himolla? Angela because, again, it's all the response. He's responding to them. You say you believe in what came down to you? Your actions, say otherwise. You have rejected everything. What are you talking about? You killed the prophets. You said we have heard and we have disobeyed. Allah made a covenant with you. He had to raise the mountain, above your hands.
Do you worship the calf not only that, this is where the addition comes in. So, this is not pure repetition, this is something new. Now, what you should remove here will be him will arrange love recovery and
what does that mean?
It can be a little bit difficult to translate
when you say in Arabic,
pushy, but when you use that verb, what you essentially mean is that that thing was absorbed so, well it's as if the person drank it.
And one of the reasons that is is because what you drink
with your parts with your insights in such a way that it becomes part of you, it nourishes
everything in your body. Right.
So, now when he says what Ooh Shri boo fear Kulu be Himalayan region.
It's almost as if they drank what allegedly the caf
it means they absorbed it in such a way it's almost as if they drank it.
you cannot drink the calf.
absorb the calf itself.
So, this is why scholars said actually what is meant here is love of the calf. The Imam Qatada said this and, and other motor city of the tabby what their hearts drank.
And thus absorbed is the love of the calf.
Love of the worship of the car, essentially love of the Kufa will have a villa
love worshipping other than Allah subhana wa Tala.
oshi goofy Kaluga himolla Agila be kufrin but he mentioned it without a rigid, almost as if the calf itself
was in their heart. They couldn't get it out of their heart. It was so
attached to them and to their hearts that there's no way they could get rid of it. What was she they will physically Kenobi him and arrange let me puffery
cogent reply to anyone who might say, Oh, it was just a whim.
They just worshipped it for a few days. It wasn't such a big thing. It was just a few of these re lights,
nothing of the sort. What wish they will fit who will be him Old Age Lubbock of free him. This is how much they loved the worship and this is why it keeps being mentioned that Allah azza wa jal keeps reprimanding them for it.
Because of how attached they became to the worship of the cat.
What was Shree woo fearful over him?
What is the reason for that? Be Kufri him again because of the disbelief remember the other Aya on the page before then Lana whom Allah Who? Because three him Allah curse them because of their cover. When they said coluna hoof Our hearts are wrapped
here as well.
This happened because of their cover.
Allah subhanaw taala tested them with that because of their cover. Well push the move here colo be himolla Angela be Kufri him.
When a person is not upon the right path.
They will love
the falsehood that they are upon.
And they may be Muslim by name.
They were born a Muslim. You look at their life.
There is no Islam in it. You don't see any semblance of Islam in their life.
For someone like this, God forbid, you might find that they like and love the fact that they are actually not on the right path.
And this is where it becomes most dangerous.
Because if you dislike the fact that you are disobeying
but it's just a weakness that you're dealing with, and you're trying to fix and rectify. And you still try to seek forgiveness from Allah, and you still have some semblance of remorse
for the fact that you are disobeying and you are away
then there's still a chance of coming back. But if you get to the level where you like that,
and it has filled your heart, that it is very dangerous.
Then it's almost like you have supplanted
the love that you should have for Allah, and for the truth and for being upon guidance, for the opposite. For the love of falsehood, and being upon misguidance
the true believers, their love is directed to Allah and to the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala and even if they fall,
they don't like the fact that they are falling or that they are not able to worship Allah subhanaw taala as he deserves to be worshipped. But if it gets to this level,
what should they do either oshi Belkin
then it becomes very dangerous. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us and to keep us guided and on the right path.
What What should we will fear Kenobi him on the line original Kufri him.
Paul, big samurai Moroccan ve man
again, a command to the prophets are Sanlam say to them, big semi Moroccan be he man who come in common to mean again. You claim you are believers. If you really think you believe
say to them be Santa Yeah, Morrow can be the man who come what an evil and wretched think
that your quote unquote, purported faith
is commanding you to do
this is what your faith is commanding you to do.
Call it big Samaya Morrow can be Malcolm
worshiping the calf
killing the prophets. This is your image this is the image you're claiming.
No, I mean, it will be my own Zilla. Hi Lena. This is your iman
How evil it is. What your Eman commands you to do. My brothers and sisters does Eman command you
this faith command or prohibit
technically doesn't right in my mind is not a person to command right.
But this is like the saying of Allah subhanaw taala in a solid 10 annual fascia you will mooncup indeed prayer
for bids, fascia and monka it forbids sins and immoralities How does prayer forbid the prayer itself doesn't forbid right. But the prayer
has an effect
on forbidding these things upon you
and distancing them from you if it is done correctly. Similarly here true Eema will lead you to the opposite of what you are doing
so it's almost like email is commanding them and notice here he attributes that the man to whom to them
He didn't say an email he said a man who come be semi Moroccan be Eman who come it's a very evil thing that your Eman because this is your email.
Again, calling it Eman. Hear her that the haccombe Allah subhanaw taala is actually walking them by calling it email. In other words, this is your email
killing the prophets and worshipping the cat
and other sins of rejection.
So he said this is your email. Paul, a big seller will come via email and we'll come in come to meaning.
May Allah forgive us and give us understanding. Baraka Luffy como Salallahu salam ala Nabina Muhammad
