My dear brothers and sisters Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. We continue with the series of the verses of Surah Baqarah.
And last time, we were talking about the beginning of the section on many Salafi and how Allah subhanaw taala reminded them, of his many favors upon them.
Allah subhana wa Tada told them, commanded them to keep the covenant with him.
And then he also said to them, and commanded them that they should believe in the book that was revealed
that Allah subhanaw taala set down, and that confirms what they have the Torah and that they should not exchange this versus of a loss of power,
for something cheap for a cheap price, and that they should fear only Allah subhanaw taala
then Allah subhanaw taala says in these verses rather on the left,
when they attend, these will have Bobby Baggallini went up to a half hour
When attended this will happen in
just a few words, but
that they cannot
are something else, whether that be through the mouth,
and lips, as many scholars or facilitator who was hurt
mixing things together.
So our last panel, the others do not mix
and help truth with welcome falsehood. Do not mix them. Do not conflate them, do not confound them, do not confuse them together. This is precisely what they were doing.
And this is one of the most sinister and dangerous ways
of hiding the truth.
And thus, afterwards, Allah subhanaw taala said, we're talking too much, and you conceal the truth.
This is one of the ways that you conceal the truth,
by not directly denying or rejecting it, but by confusing it,
by deeming it by playing around with it. So it's no longer clear, especially especially to those who may not understand.
So now you have to remember
that Jewish society at the time, and indeed, other societies.
Religion was in the hands of the priests, of the scholars. They're the ones who knew what religion was. They're the ones who used to read the book. You think people used to read the book? SubhanAllah. Sometimes we think rather innocently, that things were the way they are today. Oh, everybody's sitting there reading the Quran? No, it wasn't even available.
It was not even available to the common folk,
the priests and the scholars and the rabbis, they're the ones who reached to read the book and the common folk read the book. They didn't know what it meant, even if they had access, and we know for a very long time people do not have access. Same with the Bible. People did not have access until many many centuries later.
because it was not in the language they could read and understand. So who read it understood it, the priests, the men of religion, the men of learning, common folk did not have access to their holy book, much less know what it means. So much talent is now telling these rabbis,
these men of learning and religion, beware, do not confuse the truth and falsehood.
That becomes that much more dangerous, because it's almost like you are the door to the understanding of the religion. So whatever you do now,
the misguidance of everyone else is on your head. It's on your shoulders. You are the one who is kind of people they didn't know they didn't know any better. They were ignorant that they didn't even have access. To be able to understand well, I tend to miss what happened in marketing. Do not confuse it. Do not mix the truth and falsehood. Sort of universally from the gallery they said do not confuse truth
Some said Do not confuse
Judaism and Christianity, the religion of the people of the book. Oh, they're all of a sudden Subhan Allah. We see whether therapies or have come in buffeted today, right? Oh, it's all the same. Islam, Christianity, Judaism, all of these religions, the Abrahamic family, right? It's all the same many roads to Rome, many ways to paradise and to the pleasure of Allah, it's all the same planet? Well, I think we sort of have covered the mountain, do not confuse not mix the two together.
And it's interesting, brothers and sisters.
some of the greatest misguidance in the religion of Islam itself comes from this, without them this would have come about
coming out and saying outright, this is wrong.
We do not agree with this. This is not from Allah, this is very clear and easy to respond to. Okay, this is the way of the disbelievers the relevance of Allah. But confusing truth with falsehood,
covering truth with layers of falsehood, so that no one can see it. And very few people can understand this is sinister. This is malicious. This is the work of the wonderful team. And that's why it's interesting, even delayed when he talks about these, as he says Al Kitab, well when
he puts them together, and indeed they were hypocrites and whatever came from and repeated themselves.
misguidance in the religion of Islam, of course,
go back all the way to hell over it then
from the time when they
after the Prophet died,
and the wars of apostasy happened because they refused to pay his account. Because they said, we used to pay this account to Rasulillah seven now it's not clear so we will not pay this account.
Is this whether this has happened about an absolutely there were people who are confused when I go back and said I will fight those who separate between Salah and Zika. Some were saying
but the pre
also plan to add a guided his heart and his intellect.
But others found it. Heavy Hitter possible argument they used to break through the day they used to be the setup and now he's not there. So what
was the better thing to say?
Well let him we should have come in rather than let it continue to happen. And this is from the beginning of Islam. So you can imagine what a tempest would have happened with butter kept on getting worse over time. If it happened immediately after the death of the prophets of Allah valuable sender
and the fitna that happened in the time of mismatch
Have a tally
of the Aloha coma.
This was one of the Tempest.
They started saying things
and confusing people.
And these are the best people in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala that were chosen, as we know.
In fact, it was then that this term was coined. When I mean have you thought they were only Allah Antos, the Hermitage when they said it
and forgot this for Allah judgments is for Allah.
So he said the Kenyan mental health worried that we have
this is a word of truth indeed. But it was set for the purpose of
password length and we should have covered about
last pantalla is warning. The Rabbi's,
the Jews, but it is a warning to any person of religion
when attendees would have been badly
what back to my chuck.
Do not confuse two through five. Of course, this was the case as I said that kept on happening in history by all of the misguided sects in Islam and they are so many it was a version of Latin whistle Capcom.
With without too much help, that allows professors and new conceal
and you conceal the truth.
We know that they concealed
truths that they had in their Torah, because of their whims.
They conceal some of the legislation
they can see and of course, the matter of the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam they knew what full when they were waiting for it.
And in fact, this is how the Islam of underlying Salah happened
on the lovin Salah was waiting.
And he was busy with some palm trees or something when he came to hear
the prophet has come. He's arrived in readiness
center. So he didn't take me
and he wanted to run out to meet him. Yeah. And
his mother said
we Allah disappoint you. Why? He said, There's Musa Netcom himself, you will not have been this happy.
So he said to his mother, this is the prophet we've been waiting for. He said this is his brother, the brother of Musa with Allah. This is the person that we are waiting for. She said really? Is he the one he says yes. So the one said I went to the condo setup and accepted Islam in the famous story. And his mother eventually accepted Islam as well. They were waiting for him
that's why I had to live in that house when he was asked about the description of the Prophet SAW said looking at the Rock he said yes, we'll rock is described in the Torah as he was described in the Quran. As a loss of said
in our signature he wish you on when I realized
that indeed we have set you as a witness and a giver a glad tidings and a warrior. This was in the Torah as well. That it continues, the narration continues. That our last panelist either says that I have made you as a guardian of the meaning or guardian of
the mother does not read or write the Arabs
were headsman they only hear somebody to come with our kin I then do with our kin, the one who
puts their trust in Allah subhanaw taala and then eventually mentions as well with Allah subhanaw taala with that
he does not repay evil with evil, but rather He pardons and forgives. This isn't the tongue.
They know it and they saw it
and that was kind of a toddler will make straight. Many of the crooked ones that the Taha surgeon will give him La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah and fluid he will open, the eyes of the blind
and the ears of the deaf and the hearts of those whose hearts been enveloped with fraud
This is in the Torah, as Abdullah says, is descriptions there. This is one example of a narration and we have as well, we know that there are other verses that we can pick out in the Old Testament. And in the New Testament that mentioned, the Prophet SAW THE lives in what tune how can you consider the truth?
Waiting for him, they expected him. Similarly, in another story
that Hamlet has had relayed, relates,
hooligan, the father of Sofia, Mini, only Allah.
He went, and he met the Prophet also them and they came back
with a face different facial expression different than the one he went with.
And Sofia was welcoming them and but they were not happy.
They should be happy. He's the one you were waiting for.
But they were not. Because they didn't know what to do.
So they started talking to each other. Is it really him? He said, This robot is.
So what are you going to do? We're going to meet his enemy as long as we live.
This is the these are the Jews. This is what they did with the Prophet SAW Allah Allah Himself.
If they want to talk about anti semitism, correct us that this happened? Did you do this in the process? Or not?
Do you continue to disbelief? Do you continue to conceal the number of the prophets Allah Allah it was
because of an arrogance in your heart.
What tact to help you conceal the truth. Similarly,
in a famous authentic
There was a man and woman that they were punishing because of Zina, the Jews were punishing them.
they came to the path of Salah they had been punished, they said, they were being punished by whipping.
And by exposing them.
Nether narration mentions that their faces were black. And
so the Prophet said, Is this what you find in your book? Is this the punishment in the Torah for the one who commits adultery? said yes. So they got the torah.
And Abdullah Salah was there.
They bought the Torah.
And he read the verses before and after, and he had his finger on
what the verse that the Prophet said there was asking about the verse that mentioned Stoney
saw the London setups and remove your finger. And there was the idea that mentioned stoning.
But that was not something they wanted to do. So they just canceled the bill removed it.
And they hit it with actual hack.
So they concealed things, they conceal other legislation as well. Why? Because it did not go along with their wins, and maybe the whims of the rabbis, and maybe the whims of their most influential.
Other narration mentions that this was happening amongst the most influential
they have to do something about it, they couldn't stop them. So they changed it.
To what have
they considered the truth this way? Because religion was no longer
something for Allah.
They it was empty habits,
rituals, it was no longer something that they were doing out of obedience to Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's why you find that these verses are lost from the other is fixing and rectifying these deep
diseases that they had.
With Dr. will help cover today Thailand and we know very well. What Allah subhanaw taala is turning
to Allah is commanding you and forbidding him from
Okay we'll select our to kurta workflow.
And then he says an established prayer and build the circuit and bow with those who power cable solo and
of course, now Allah subhanaw taala is transitioning from fixing issues with their email,
their creed, right, their beliefs that was all beliefs, it will be mindset without disturbing it. Whether this will have come about they will at the doctor will help.
Now he's transitioned into commands of certain actions, certain acts of Islam, which are established the prayer,
establish the prayer here, meaning with the prophets of Allah they will not do the prayer on your own. This is a call to enter to follow the prophets of the Lord Zilla that you have written in your books.
establish the prayer
along with him and along with the believers. He was
one or two seconds and give these accounts. And we know Subhanallah that the foundations
of worship are the same. In all of the different charity as we call them, Sharia is right because the religion of Allah azza wa jal is one.
The deen of Allah subhanaw taala is an Islam
submission to Allah azza wa jal.
This is what all of the prophets taught. But now, in these differentially ours, they also have summer, they also have Zika they also have fasting Hardinge it's the same brothers and sisters. So the differences between the sugars are minor differences. But the fundamentals of worship are there.
He will slow zecca
and we find SubhanAllah. Throughout the Quran, Allah azza wa jal combines these two
because of their importance, Salah
being the most important Muslim duty,
the most important and most frequently done Muslim duty is the saya.
The connection with Allah subhanaw taala. And ultimately,
the purification of the heart
welcomes notice what appeals stablish it's
not just pray it, establish it. In other words, do it in the best way, establishing perform it as a Lost Planet, Allah commanded people Salah will arrive to Zika
that two second, also purification. So Ron is a purification as we know, and zecca by definition, the word Zeca one of the meanings is purification.
Well after a second,
well, I have to say,
here is also a purification of what often the heart of the person performing the Sacra and a purification of the wealthy as well.
So you have purification of the heart, you have purification of the wealth,
you have salah, which is the ultimate when it comes to the acts of worship that we do.
And then you have acts of worship that are financial acts of worship, that is on top of the list as well. A king was allowed to sack up
and this is why Subhan Allah,
Allah Allah Allah immediately realized these two cannot be separated these are like twins, identical twins who are people Salah to second
so last point is telling them now
when the cow rocky
welcome about Rocky and bow with those who bow. It's quite interesting that if you see the Jews today, they rarely ever bow or kneel.
Their Salah is different. There's a lot of bobbing up and down
There's no real bowing and sujood except possibly very rarely
will come out rock heavy
and allow those who now enable a totally finds that this means general submission, workable, not recovering, and not a specific command to record.
That rather, it is a command to Hulu, submission to Allah spare time. In other words, be with those who submit, submit with the submitters
all of these are called to be now with the Muslims that have accepted the Prophet SAW Selim, you should have accepted it before that because you knew that we were waiting already.
Well, people slip out after Xikar while recovering from the hard rock me submit with those who submit and one of the best actions of those who submit
is valid to Allah subhanaw taala in prayer
see in that verse, evidence to support the importance and indeed the obligation according to the opinion of Serato DJ now, what we can do right
now with those who are battling in other words, this is a call to congregational prayer. So let's work out rock and roll Allah Allah it seems that it is more precise and accurate to say that it is
something you can mention as support, but it is not a very clear
to support the opinion then sought after Jehovah is an obligation that you have to pray when it can be mentioned as one of the areas that
lends credence to it though if not it is not one of the main
supporting evidence for it.
What cow rock carrying and notice what a cow now rocking yes a call to congregational Salah and worship and also a call to be with the believers
you didn't say well cool new minute Mercury he said what a couple now
bow along with those who are being with those who bow
the importance of Janelle And Islam we see this in many different eyes.
religion brothers and sisters is a religion of
of togetherness of the congregation GEMA to mostly be there's no such thing as each Muslim being an idol upon his home. No.
We are to be one everything we do Subhanallah we do together
Salah itself when modern Muslim see this they are in shock they are at least there is nothing like it in the whole world.
That shows such unity even outside of hedge destiny.
When you see 1000s upon 1000s of people all critically moving in unison It's remarkable
yet Subhanallah there's so much disunity there
but this is a religion of unity
of Being with the Muslims workout
workout with Na rockin
when he says
I tend to move on unless we
return some of that to certain way
further evidence it's religion have just become
we have rituals that will not necessarily admit it to you command others
with good to do righteous with deeds and BIM means everything good.
It is a term that includes everything good that you can do to please
do you combat others the people with beef and you forget yourselves
and you forget yourselves lunch of the tuna kitab. Can you recite the book, the book here beings that won't walk in the door,
want to do like a fella talk to you?
So what exactly that they used to do.
That was commanded others but not themselves? Well, as we said,
religion was mere rituals, a lot of them, a lot of their rabbis and their priests and their men of learning. Were really not that religious at all. Maybe they had some knowledge of the D. And they were able to answer questions, but they themselves are not practicing.
Furthermore, religion has become more like a profession.
And subhanAllah Singh says, this is the ultimate evil.
When the people of religion
start taking religion as a profession.
It's no longer a true and sincere, genuine rip that in their heart,
something that they believe in. It's just rituals, things they say and do, which they themselves it seems do not believe it or do not practice. So Allah azza wa jal, just as
especially those people have learned, that moon and NASA been built with 10 Solar Prusa What about you?
And we have seen Subhanallah in our own times,
stories that will make people's hair gray of the quote unquote, people of religion and learning and understanding the kinds of things that they did. And yet they are telling everyone else joining good and forbidding evil
within cylinder for second, some of the tablet even for severe determinate understood from this.
Again, the issue of Muhammad Sallallahu, Salah, Africa concealing yet how, because this also is another example,
and manifestation of confusing truth and falsehood. So they said to people,
you follow him.
He's a prophet, but he wasn't sent to us he was sent to you.
He was sent to the Arabs follow him and tell him we're gonna message him within some time, for example.
This is a possibility.
They confirmed they confuse truth and falsehood. They said he or she is a prophet, but not to us. This is where it can be so happy about
another commending others but they're forgetting about themselves.
The type of woman messing him up
selling them to cell phone while I'm doing that lunar kitab.
is one of those scary verses
because it has to do with enjoining good and forbidding evil.
But it is also mentioning the importance of one implementing that which they teach, practice what you preach.
And for that,
suddenly understand from it,
that you can only enjoin good and forbid evil.
If you practice that which you are avoiding or you avoid that which you are forbidding
This is why
in one narration mentioned by Evan by the way and may help the others
a man came to him in our bus
of the Lord.
And He said to him, I want to enjoin good and forbid evil.
He said have you
reached that point?
The point where you can now do it good and for medieval. He said I believe so.
He said bye
There are three
things, three phrases words
in the Book of Allah that may expose you. Are you ready for that?
He said, What are they?
So he mentioned to him. The first one is a dumb rule
have you done this?
We said no. In other words, have you fulfilled this? Said?
Yes said what's the second one? He said,
Yeah, you're Latina, Mr. Lieber? Taku Luna Ma, if
you believe, why do you say that? But you do not do? You said have you fulfilled this? said no.
So what's the third one?
saying of the price sort of a launch right. And he said that he said, when I read
into into the slides
did not want to
do that which I forbid you to do.
I only desire a slot for
you said have you fulfilled this? He said no. He said that start with yourself.
In other words, begin reforming yourself before you do the other things, very scary.
And there are many such narrations that will find authentic narrations of the prophets on the lower limbs and that warn of this thing.
We find that the prophets of Allah Allah wa salam
mentioned to us
that during his journey, that he saw people in hellfire
and their lips were being cut my scissors a fire and he asked Julian, what are the things
he said to him? These are the health of your own money. The
people who give servants, the puppets, people who teach others
who do not follow what they enjoy the people to do.
It's not fulfilled that which they are telling others to do. There is clarity.
In another narration
the further Busan Zaid.
You was telling them that he heard the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam say
that there will be a man in hellfire.
His belly is open and his intestines are coming out. And he is going around himself like a donkey around the millstone.
So the people of hellfire will come to him and say, what's going on, didn't tell us didn't join us, enjoy good upon us and forbade us from doing evil. He said this student joined me to do good, I wouldn't do it. And I forbidden from evils at night used to commit it
For this reason, yes, some scholars have said if you have not done
if you have not fulfilled yourself first, but
how can you enjoy them for meeting and forbid evil?
And there is no doubt that the IRA is showing us the egregiousness
of doing such of not practicing what you preach and how bad it is. Okay.
On the other hand,
scholars did comment
and didn't talk about this issue, because it's very important.
And this is why they said
that if we go back to interesting say of citing
say them ZWave said,
no one enjoying good or forbidding evil
until they had no wrongdoing,
then there would be no one who would enjoy
very interesting sleep.
So he's trying to say, yes, you have to practice what you preach. But if it happens that you do not, you should not neglect
if we're going to wait for everyone to be perfect, what will happen? There will be no enjoy good.
This is why scholars sent and empathy confirms this. He says this is the correct opinion of scholars
of ancient and the more other ones as well, that the correct opinion is that they are two separate and independent obligations.
One, doing the righteous good deed
one type of deed, one type of obligation, then there is another independent obligation and that is to enjoin good and forbid evil. So, even if,
God forbid, your law protects us all, if we are committing a certain sin.
And then we see someone committing that sin.
Do we forbid it?
Forbid ourselves as well.
I'm not praying the way I should
I see someone
not doing their prayers properly, or not praying with my prayers. Should I tell them? Should I enjoy God? Absolutely. You must. It's another obligation.
But I'm not practicing. Well start practicing. But that is a different obligation.
And if you say to yourself, no, I'm going to fix myself first and then enjoying good, guess what you have abandoned that other obligation. So you have not fulfilled the first obligation which is the prayer itself. And you have not fulfilled the other obligation, which is enjoying people to pray.
separate, independent obligation. Okay.
enjoin, good, and forbid evil, and do your best to do the same?
It's a very, it's a sensitive issue. Absolutely. And
though, we have those narrations that are very scary, but at the same time, we need to enjoin good and we need to commit
when it vitiates, your other
if you are known,
to be not performing man, what you preach? Absolutely.
So if you're a drunkard, and you're telling people don't drink, yeah, it's definitely a problem if you do it publicly. But if you do it privately, and no one knows that, you know, it's wrong.
there is no problem.
And it does not allow an island contradict this.
This is what's called a setting attack mode unless you are telling someone for second
tap, and you recite the book and you know, the book, again, is speaking to those learners. They're the ones who know the book, they know and most well,
they see the verses and they're doing the opposite attempt to do their Kitab fn attack to you. And then after that, we can apply it to ourselves as well.
unfortunately, when we look at
that string of verses,
and what the last point Allah is trying to rectify
in the Druze
a lot of it we see sometimes in ourselves is
because we are far away from our religion. It's a reminder to us as well.
Hasn't religion become 12 to a great many people Muslims has not become just me rituals.
things that they do, where there is no real belief or have no real understanding. Don't we see that? We see that quite a bit.
If that happens, then
we are similar to the Jews who Allah subhanaw taala is representing you.
This is not the way religion should be. Religion should be something sincere, coming from a sincere heart that pervades our consciousness and our way of life. Not merely things that we say that we do not understand, or things that we do, completely mechanically.
belong to Allah Allah. So Allah
what is wrong
