taught us Indeed you are the All Knowing the all wise. My dear brothers and sisters, salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakato in sha Allah everybody is doing well.

00:00:56--> 00:01:01

We continue with the Tafseer of surah baqarah

00:01:03--> 00:01:07

and today we will cover the following verses in sha Allah

00:01:09--> 00:01:14

Now what do we learn him in a show you on you're watching this middle here?

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

What is bull to me?

00:01:21--> 00:01:22

mean Allah.

00:01:23--> 00:01:24

Allah ha

00:01:26--> 00:01:27

ha that Kunis saw

00:01:29--> 00:01:33

to tell on the

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

dyno take

00:01:39--> 00:01:43

outta school. Well, one, eco.

00:01:46--> 00:01:53

Eco Moolman our cell Luuk Hulu me Otto Yeva. tema was upon.

00:01:54--> 00:01:58

When I was a Munna, Wila King, you can who.

00:02:06--> 00:02:12

Just to give a quick background for the verses we're going to talk about today.

00:02:13--> 00:02:19

Because this is where Allah subhanaw taala tells us about another

00:02:20--> 00:02:28

blessing upon many Surah l after another one of their violations and great sins.

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

And this is when

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

Musa alayhis salam

00:02:36--> 00:02:37


00:02:38--> 00:02:49

the coming back and seeing that his people were worshipping the golden calf, after having been saved from their oppressors.

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

After seeing that,

00:02:55--> 00:02:56

and then

00:02:57--> 00:03:07

Allah subhanaw taala, commanding them, and ordering them to do what they deserve, which is to kill each other.

00:03:09--> 00:03:16

Regardless of whether they did that or not. And we discussed that in detail last time.

00:03:18--> 00:03:28

But after this, and after Allah subhanaw taala forgive them for that as well. For the egregious sin of calf worship.

00:03:29--> 00:03:43

Now, they need to do more, to seek the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala as we said, regardless of whether it happened or not, let's claim that it happened. Let's claim that they did kill each other.

00:03:44--> 00:03:59

Even then, Allah subhanaw taala was so merciful, that whoever lived, had a chance to repent to Allah subhanaw taala and start a new life. Whoever died, died as a Shaheed

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

so even if they didn't kill each other,

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

this was a repentance. And Allah subhanaw taala accepted it and forgave them. And if it didn't happen, as we discussed last time, which is also

00:04:17--> 00:04:26

a real possibility, then the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala upon them is even greater that he forgave them for that as well.

00:04:27--> 00:04:40

So now, Musa alayhis salam is going to go to Mount Sinai with 70 of the greatest of Benissa is

00:04:41--> 00:04:45

the cream of the crop, creme de la creme as they say.

00:04:47--> 00:04:51

So now he picks out 70 of the best

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

to go with him to Mount Sinai

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

to seek Allah's pleasure

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

and seek his forgiveness for what they have done and to thank him for his blessing upon them and for His forgiveness after all that they have done.

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

And the more of the details about this incident, we see, of course in Surah Arraf here,

00:05:21--> 00:05:25

there's a very important detail that is mentioned that is not mentioned they're

00:05:27--> 00:05:33

here, Allah Subhana Allah tells us that they told Musa alayhis salam,

00:05:35--> 00:05:44

we will not believe Len no Minna neck, we will not believe in you or for you.

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

Until we see Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

without any barrier,

00:05:54--> 00:06:06

straight up. We want to see Allah subhanaw taala directly. Now Allah can you imagine? What kind of hearts are these hearts?

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

You shouldn't be so humbled now.

00:06:11--> 00:06:17

That Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven you, you shouldn't be afraid to say the slightest word.

00:06:20--> 00:06:32

We know some of the Sahaba could not even properly look into the eyes of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam now you understand the superiority of the Sahaba Well, the Allahu huntin

00:06:33--> 00:06:43

they could not even look in the Prophet, much less ask him. Show us Allah directly. We want to look at him, we want to see him directly Allahu Akbar.

00:06:47--> 00:06:59

And, of course, the Sahaba did not go through all of these sins and violations and forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. And yet, look at the humility.

00:07:01--> 00:07:20

After all of this, the greatest the cream of the crop, the seven t tell Musa alayhis salam, we will not believe until we see Allah Jehovah. Jehovah means directly, no barriers straight.

00:07:22--> 00:07:27

My brothers and sisters, can Allah subhanaw taala be seen in the dunya?

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

Yes, I heard it. Yes.

00:07:32--> 00:07:34

Yes, in the dunya not in the dunya

00:07:36--> 00:07:47

and akhira. Yes, absolutely. in akhira In fact, the greatest blessing in Jannah is looking at Allah sin Allah subhanaw taala directly.

00:07:48--> 00:07:55

The greatest blessing in Jannah Allah subhanaw taala grant us that. I mean,

00:07:56--> 00:08:00

what in the dunya No, learn to recall absorb

00:08:01--> 00:08:06

it cannot be seen in the dunya if anyone would have seen him it might have been Musa alayhis salam

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

or the Prophet Muhammad Salah

00:08:11--> 00:08:15

in fact, Musa de Blanc

00:08:22--> 00:08:24

why are they so sinful?

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


00:08:32--> 00:08:33


00:08:34--> 00:08:35

the best

00:08:41--> 00:08:42

subhanaw taala.

00:08:53--> 00:08:58

Heard is more challenging for the last pilot

00:09:15--> 00:09:17

this incident is also a

00:09:22--> 00:09:23


00:09:29--> 00:09:32

as of last month Allah tells us but look at the map.

00:09:34--> 00:09:53

If it is able to stay firm and stable you will see me when Allah subhanaw taala appeared to the mountain. The scholars of Tafseer say he appeared to the mountain in the slightest way, not completely.

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

The mountain fell in ruin.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

As if it was nothing make him thus

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


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

Musa Salam fell unconscious, you cannot see Allah and the duty.

00:10:09--> 00:10:11

Who do you think you are?

00:10:13--> 00:10:21

You want to see Allah if you saw the angel you might fall unconscious, the prophet or Stella Moran, when he saw Jabril Ali Salam in his angelic form,

00:10:23--> 00:10:25

you want to see Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:26--> 00:10:34

they say we will not believe. So they are not asking the same way Musa is asking.

00:10:36--> 00:10:38

They are asking in a different way.

00:10:40--> 00:10:45

There might be some mockery there, there seems to be some obstinacy there.

00:10:47--> 00:10:54

Furthermore, Musa alayhis salam just wanted to see Allah. Here they have a condition.

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

Learn no matter like we will not believe

00:10:59--> 00:11:03

ALLAH until we see him.

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


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

This is another difference. Number three.

00:11:13--> 00:11:15

After Musa alayhis salam fell unconscious.

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

When he woke up what did he do?

00:11:20--> 00:11:26

He said Glory be to You or Allah, I repent to to Lake Subhana Qian

00:11:28--> 00:11:29

Did he do something wrong?

00:11:33--> 00:11:47

This is the humility, the humility of the hearts of the prophets. Peace be upon them all said I repent to you. If I have done something wrong, I seek forgiveness and I repent to you.

00:11:48--> 00:12:24

They are saying show us Allah subhanaw taala we want to see indirectly. It's the same exact personality. Brothers and sisters through the ages. The same old materialism. Musa Ali Salam had to deal with it. The profits of money sloth, Ill had to deal with them. Isa Ali Salam himself had to deal with it. Every time he tells them something, and he means it metaphorically, they understand it literally. And he tells them why will you not understand?

00:12:26--> 00:12:33

Why do you take everything literally and materially it's all about material. You want us to believe we want to see him.

00:12:34--> 00:12:44

Do do not see one blessing after another one favor after another. Following your sins and your violations.

00:12:46--> 00:12:49

Now we want to see him material.

00:12:51--> 00:13:22

The material life the I will not believe like if I can't see it believing seeing or seeing is believing. Right? This is something you know today we see today everywhere. If we cannot see it, then it is not there. Subhanallah we cannot touch it that it doesn't exist. There are so many things. Yeah, they believe in they cannot see or touch. But they believe in it. And they know it exists.

00:13:25--> 00:13:32

To to for so Allah subhanaw taala all of these favors, was that not enough? No. They want to see him directly.

00:13:33--> 00:13:35

Some of the narrations

00:13:37--> 00:13:38


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


00:13:43--> 00:14:01

they because they came and they also possibly heard Allah subhanho wa Taala speaking to Musa Ali Salaam in the same way they wanted to see him as Musa Ali salaam wanted to see you. But is this a defense? No.

00:14:02--> 00:14:09

Because you cannot make it conditional cannot say we will not believe until we see him.

00:14:10--> 00:14:13

Who are you to put conditions on Allah azza wa jal.

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

Nobody puts conditions on Allah.

00:14:18--> 00:14:27

Allah out of his magnificence may put a condition upon himself but that's all no one else can put a condition upon him.

00:14:31--> 00:14:43

That's the difference. So even if we say that this narration is correct, and that they also heard it, where's the respect? Where's the humility?

00:14:45--> 00:14:47

Where's the fear?

00:14:48--> 00:14:52

No, we will not believe until we see at Turner Allah Jarrah.

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

Como sigh

00:14:56--> 00:14:58

So you got what you deserved.

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

A lightning bolt took them

00:15:04--> 00:15:07

here Allah subhanaw taala mentions osika

00:15:08--> 00:15:11

Sahifa here seems to be

00:15:12--> 00:15:18

some kind of a bolt that could have been lightning

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

could have been

00:15:22--> 00:15:27

some natural wonder that killed them.

00:15:29--> 00:15:32

in Zurich earth he mentions a Roger via

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

a shaking an earthquake.

00:15:38--> 00:15:41

And we know that that can easily happen in both.

00:15:42--> 00:15:46

And we know that for mood the people of sila Halle Salem

00:15:48--> 00:15:51

were destroyed by something similar.

00:15:52--> 00:15:58

A lightning bolt that shook them that burned them.

00:16:01--> 00:16:24

Of course, sometimes the lightning bolt itself sounds like us, I have, like such a loud sound. Just the other day Subhanallah there was a lightning bolt. I mean, honestly, it scared us out of our skin, it was so loud that this is a regular lightning bolt, not one that destroys

00:16:25--> 00:16:40

like the one that took them so we can easily understand a lightning bolt a great sound. And as it is destruction from Allah, that was a shaking that caused the shaking Raja. So they all were killed.

00:16:41--> 00:16:50

The 70 of the cream of the crop, if this is the way the cream of the crop act, when you can imagine

00:16:52--> 00:16:59

the commoners the lay people the hoi polloi Subhanak era

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

that had come Messiah to and to tell them the rune. So this lightning bolt this shaking took you and destroy you, while you are looking at it while you witness it. It is something that you witnessed and you saw. So Allah subhanaw taala destroyed them.

00:17:18--> 00:17:20

They got what they deserve.

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

But that's not the end of the story.

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

Oops. Musa alayhis salam now has a serious problem.

00:17:34--> 00:17:43

Musa alayhis salam left the people took the best of Belize. Surah Al for the meeting with Allah and now they're all dead.

00:17:44--> 00:17:48

Can you imagine Moses position going back? What is he gonna say?

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

It's a very difficult position.

00:17:55--> 00:17:56

The Quran is clear.

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

He asked Allah.

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

He said, Oh Allah

00:18:03--> 00:18:11

will you destroy us? Through that which was done by the

00:18:15--> 00:18:27

call it a super high you would say the weak of, of mind or the weak of intellect, notice the cream of the crop now our sofa

00:18:28--> 00:18:37

are weak of mind and weak of intellect course somebody who who commits a sin like this

00:18:38--> 00:18:46

are deserve such a description by Musa alayhis salam. So clearly he implored Allah subhanaw taala Oh Allah.

00:18:50--> 00:19:06

The Bible says even more and some of the narrations that you find in the FSC as well, that they implored and beseech Allah Oh Allah, there's nobody left. You have destroyed the best of us. You have killed them

00:19:08--> 00:19:11

of course with what their own hands have reaped.

00:19:14--> 00:19:20

So Allah subhanaw taala response and Allah subhanaw taala resurrect

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

resurrects them after death

00:19:26--> 00:19:33

through motherhood ethnical minbar the multicam if this phrase was not their main body multicam

00:19:34--> 00:19:50

we might understand bath knocking differently and in fact you will find in the UFC some opinions that say that here but as Nico is not after this, but it is very clear. Coming now the multicam after you were killed.

00:19:51--> 00:19:54

So Allah azza wa jal brought them back to life.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

Law Allah conditio guru so that maybe you will be grateful

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

Will you be grateful that Allah subhanaw taala brought you back to life? This is on another level brothers and sisters, this is not just forgiveness now. They were killed.

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

They were destroyed because of what they did.

00:20:17--> 00:20:18

Now Allah azza wa jal

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

problem back to life.

00:20:24--> 00:20:33

Honestly, when you see the mercy of Allah subhanaw, taala, and forgiveness towards when it's really

00:20:34--> 00:20:41

you, you understand the meaning of the fool, and with afar, Rahim until

00:20:43--> 00:20:47

an awful Subhanak era. So he resurrected them.

00:20:50--> 00:20:54

They are alive again, they have a second chance.

00:20:56--> 00:20:58

None of us can say as far as I know

00:20:59--> 00:21:06

that this is our second chance unless you had a near death experience. Anybody had a near death experience? Raise your hand.

00:21:07--> 00:21:08

Don't be shy.

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

Some people are laughing.

00:21:14--> 00:21:16

Near Death Experience whether

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

near death experience means you were so close to death. It's almost like you stared death in the eye.

00:21:26--> 00:21:31

And then somehow Allah saved you. That's what near death experience means.

00:21:33--> 00:21:43

If you had such an experience, you might kind of understand the way the 70 of the best of Bani Israel now feel.

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

They have just been given a second chance a second life

00:21:49--> 00:21:51

when they shouldn't have

00:21:54--> 00:22:04

many people have had near death experiences and it has changed their lives. And many people found Islam after some kind of a near death experience.

00:22:06--> 00:22:10

A new lease on life another chance

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

you're going to meet your maker

00:22:18--> 00:22:26

and there are some people unfortunately, amongst Muslims as well, who may have not learned from that near death experience

00:22:35--> 00:22:47

and instead of changing their ways, they just continued as if nothing had happened maybe in the beginning they changed a little bit and then everything went back to normal

00:22:51--> 00:22:59

let us not wait to stare death in the eye brothers and sisters to change to

00:23:08--> 00:23:14

our condition our relationship with Allah subhanaw taala don't wait for that experience.

00:23:16--> 00:23:20

I'm not sure that you will nee resurrected like

00:23:21--> 00:23:22


00:23:32--> 00:23:34

of them that second chance.

00:23:36--> 00:23:38

And it continues.

00:23:39--> 00:23:51

The story continues. The violations continue. As if nothing had happened. Some of that athanor come in the multicam law school route. Maybe then you will be grateful

00:23:54--> 00:24:05

when Allah subhanaw taala says what we'll learn now holiday como Ohana more of the favours and the blessings. So later on

00:24:06--> 00:24:10

when Benny Surah eel were stuck in a tea

00:24:11--> 00:24:16

when they were lost in the midst of the

00:24:17--> 00:24:18

Sinai desert.

00:24:21--> 00:24:27

And this was because they refuse to enter the blessed land as we know.

00:24:28--> 00:24:30

So Allah subhanaw taala

00:24:31--> 00:24:32

punishing punish them in this way.

00:24:34--> 00:24:40

40 years, they cannot get out of this area. AT T It's called

00:24:42--> 00:24:43

for 40 years.

00:24:44--> 00:24:57

During this time now this is a punishment. This is your punishment for again refusing to fulfill the Command of Allah subhanaw taala and to support

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

your Prophet Allah His

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

Tell me who saved you from that oppressor from that frown.

00:25:06--> 00:25:13

This is a punishment now. No, but they still have requests. They still have things they want.

00:25:15--> 00:25:17

So they kept on asking.

00:25:19--> 00:25:26

Very narration say that. They asked Musa alayhis salam. What are what are we going to do in the middle of the desert?

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

How can we protect ourselves from the sun?

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

So ALLAH SubhanA wa jahana

00:25:35--> 00:25:44

covered them. Wallner hallae qumola Harmon, we covered you. Many scholars said with clouds.

00:25:46--> 00:26:03

Clouds, regular clouds, but he covered them. He gave them that cover that they needed in the desert over Linda Haleakala to protect you muda had an Emeter bursts while the Allahu Anhu said no these are not clouds. These are something more.

00:26:05--> 00:26:06

This is like

00:26:08--> 00:26:18

another level of clouds similar to the clouds in which Allah subhanaw taala will come on the Day of Judgment.

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


00:26:22--> 00:26:44

to mammography of all early middle of Emanuel Iike Allah and angels will come in a cloud cover how we don't no Allahu Allah in a cloud cover on the Day of Judgment, even humbleness and Mujahid said, these are the special clouds like these clouds

00:26:47--> 00:26:56

not any clouds and it was again another special favor for when it's over lol Na Li komolika, ma'am.

00:27:01--> 00:27:08

They asked Musa alayhis salam, what are we going to eat in this arid desert? What are we going to drink?

00:27:11--> 00:27:16

So Allah subhanaw taala gave them the miracle food,

00:27:17--> 00:27:26

Ullman Silva. And this is also very clearly mentioned in the Bible with other details as well.

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

Ullman was Salwa, what are elmen was Salwa.

00:27:32--> 00:27:34

Ultimately it is food

00:27:35--> 00:27:37

and scholars different about men.

00:27:42--> 00:27:47

In the Bible, it is very clear that men is a type of bread

00:27:48--> 00:27:50

which they had during the day.

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

Scholars have seen had some different opinions. Some said that it is something sweet.

00:28:02--> 00:28:04

It is something that is similar to honey.

00:28:05--> 00:28:07

Some said it is honey.

00:28:08--> 00:28:17

Some said it is more like a drink, that Allah subhanaw taala gave them from the sky, miracle food, Ullman.

00:28:20--> 00:28:25

In English Manor, the manor and quick Salwa being the Queen

00:28:29--> 00:28:36

it's possible to allow Adam that elmen may be something more general and may not be just one thing.

00:28:38--> 00:28:42

It is miracle food. And it may be several things.

00:28:44--> 00:28:46

One of the possible

00:28:49--> 00:28:57

points that lends credence to this opinion is that the Prophet SAW Selim said in the authentic hadith, he said I'll come.

00:28:58--> 00:28:59


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

were metal her Schiefer only line l can

00:29:06--> 00:29:09

come is like a desert truffle

00:29:11--> 00:29:16

truffles that go grown the desert. I'll come.

00:29:17--> 00:29:21

He said I'll come in and men camera is off the men.

00:29:23--> 00:29:33

Scholars of Hadith sent this is possibly the men that is mentioned as the miracle food that was given to many struggling.

00:29:35--> 00:29:37

So Africa is from men.

00:29:38--> 00:29:47

That means it seems that men is several things. Not just one thing couldn't be the bread. It could be

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

these truffles. It could be other things as well. Food that they were granted as a miracle from Allah subhanaw taala and it's interesting that

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

Men in Arabic, the word men means

00:30:08--> 00:30:10

it has to do with a favor that you do to someone.

00:30:13--> 00:30:35

So actually, if I do you a favor, I am doing. It's a type of men towards you. As long as I don't take it too far, which is to constantly remind you remember when I did do that favor? Remember when I helped you remember what I did that? That's taking it too far.

00:30:37--> 00:30:41

But otherwise, yes. When you

00:30:42--> 00:30:44

when you do a favor to someone,

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

this is related to men.

00:30:49--> 00:31:01

Now, Allah subhanaw taala. We so we would say in Arabic men lay him in this way, that he did this favor towards them by granting them

00:31:03--> 00:31:10

this miracle food was Salwa. So he granted them some food.

00:31:12--> 00:31:21

Something to have during the day, the Bible says, you go out and you just take what you need. You don't take more than that.

00:31:22--> 00:31:34

And when they took more, guess what happened? It stayed over to the next day, and it became rotten and they found maggots on it. This is according to the Bible.

00:31:35--> 00:31:47

Allah told them you just take what you need. For that day. I'm gonna give it to you every single day. Subhan Allah miracle food from the sky

00:31:48--> 00:31:51

and they will get it every single day.

00:31:53--> 00:31:54

What about Saturday,

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

Saturdays the Sabbath. There should not be any work on the Sabbath, right?

00:32:02--> 00:32:06

So Saturday, they're not gonna be able to take anything.

00:32:08--> 00:32:13

So they were allowed to take for two days for Friday and Saturday.

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

After that, you just take what you need for that one day.

00:32:21--> 00:32:27

Men during the day, Salwa later at night, said well being the bird meet

00:32:29--> 00:32:33

the quail, the quail bird small, pretty little bird.

00:32:35--> 00:32:39

Allah subhanaw taala centered upon them so you have everything you need.

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

You have your food and drink.

00:32:44--> 00:32:51

You have your cloud cover. In what in the punishment in a T

00:32:54--> 00:33:09

ones are gnarly Coleman was Salwa. Kulu mean are you batty Myra zakenna Calm II eat off the bat of the great things, the blessings that I have provided to you

00:33:10--> 00:33:26

that we have provided to you as a miracle again Subhanallah and that's why mana in English one of the definitions is that not only that it is the food that was given to Venezuela that it is a miracle food

00:33:27--> 00:33:53

Colombia you bet in America anarcho then one Malala Munna Oh, it's not over yet. Here there seems to be something that is omitted. And that is that after all of that, they continued in their violations in their sins in their cover, in their obstinacy.

00:33:56--> 00:34:13

One Avila Munna so in other words, they continued, but this was not in any way going to affect Allah subhanaw taala one may have Allah Munna and they have not done good unto us, but rather they have done good to themselves.

00:34:14--> 00:34:44

Whomever Munna Wallah, King Fusa whom you have removed, they have wronged themselves, as they have wronged themselves so many times before. And this is further proof that Allah Subhan you cannot wrong Allah you cannot do more than to Allah, you are doing good unto yourself. When you stray from the path of Allah subhanaw taala in this way and you refuse to follow His commandments. So as you see

00:34:47--> 00:34:50

even after that

00:34:52--> 00:34:57

earth shaking, violation of the calf worship

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

and Allah's repent

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

Since and then

00:35:02--> 00:35:32

having the chance now to seek Allah's pleasure and seek his forgiveness with the best of many Israel in and then they did what they did and ask him to see Allah subhanaw taala. And then the story continues, as we saw, and the verses continue in Surah Al Baqarah, detailing how Allah subhanaw taala kept on forgiving and kept on giving them and we may wonder,

00:35:33--> 00:35:37

Why did Allah subhanaw taala give them so many chances?

00:35:40--> 00:35:51

Allah subhanaw taala just kept on giving chances, because this is because Allah Subhan Allah, this is the characteristic of Allah, that He is the Most Merciful and the Most forgiving.

00:35:52--> 00:35:59

And he wants you to seek his repentance, and he wants to accept your repentance.

00:36:01--> 00:36:03

And they were,

00:36:04--> 00:36:16

they were the best people when they obeyed Allah subhanaw taala. But now you've been given one chance after another. And you keep reneging, and you keep not fulfilling and disobeying.

00:36:17--> 00:36:24

And this has been a struggle, my brothers and sisters, unfortunately, this

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


00:36:34--> 00:36:35

whatever you want,

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

this is

00:36:39--> 00:36:43

not of course, it's not anti semitic, because history is your

00:36:48--> 00:36:49

you committed

00:36:50--> 00:36:52

most in this way.

00:36:53--> 00:36:58

And a few disagree with me, is common disputed. And

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

what's interesting is that in all of these verses from the

00:37:07--> 00:37:07


00:37:15--> 00:37:17

The Quran speaking to whom

00:37:24--> 00:37:25

their ancestors were,

00:37:27--> 00:37:34

they are not the ones who worshipped the calf, their ancestors were, they are not the ones who as

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

testers were.

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

Yet Allah subhanaw taala is speaking to them, as

00:37:42--> 00:37:44

they are one of the same. Why?

00:37:46--> 00:38:07

Because their actions are the same as the actions of their ancestors. And they are in agreement and they support the positions of their ancestors. So he will talk to them in the same way otherwise, if it wasn't the case, why letter 002 is wrong.

00:38:08--> 00:38:17

I am not at fault if Adam and his son, the father of all of humanity sinned, and neither is anyone else. For that matter, we discussed this.

00:38:18--> 00:38:21

So the Jews at the time of the province of Salem are not at fault.

00:38:22--> 00:38:25

Unless they agree and support

00:38:27--> 00:39:05

the position of their ancestors, then you are wondering the same. And Allah Subhana Allah talks to you as if he's talking to them. Of course, as a blessing, of course, he will remind you of the blessing. You remember your ancestors, you remember these blessings upon you the violations, okay? You didn't commit it, but if you do not dispute it, and if you agree with their position, unconditionally, then definitely you are also at fault. And you are also being addressed as your ancestors were addressed. So he keeps talking to the Jews at the time of the Prophet, send them

00:39:07--> 00:39:26

as if he is talking to the Jews who committed those violations at the time of Musa alayhis salam. What is called Tomb. Yeah, Musa La Mina luck. So it's all talking about their ancestors, but he was addressing the Jews at the time. This same materialism

00:39:27--> 00:39:48

this same disbelief, then they mark the prophets of Salaam, didn't they keep asking him for signs as they kept on asking them for signs. Paul said it in his letter to the Corinthians. He said the Jews asked for science and the Greek seek wisdom.

00:39:50--> 00:39:55

Jews are always asking for signs, signs and wonders you have seen a million signs.

00:39:56--> 00:39:57

No, they want more.

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

They want it to

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

See Allah azza wa jal directly

00:40:03--> 00:40:12

at the time of the Prophet sallallahu. They're asking for science. They're testing him. If you get this right, we will believe in you Subhana Cure Up there testing the prophets of salaam

00:40:14--> 00:40:20

What is this? What is that? Right? What is the food for the people of paradise?

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

And they're just testing him asking all of these questions. And then did they believe

00:40:27--> 00:40:41

and above has answered their questions. This is the way it was. So now you guys are doing the same thing. You have fallen into the same trap, the same materialistic trap, you're still asking for science.

00:40:42--> 00:40:53

You're still not believing? You know about excuse me, you know about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is written in your book you have not believed.

00:40:54--> 00:41:09

So, yes, you will be addressed. Just like Allah azza wa jal was addressing their ancestors, because you are following in their footsteps Exactly. In not

00:41:10--> 00:41:25

doing what Allah subhanaw taala commanded, which is to follow and believe in the popular Salam and to continuously ask for these sites. And guess what, it wasn't enough that they were asking for it. They will tell Quraysh ask him this. Ask him that.

00:41:28--> 00:41:42

And thus, Allah subhanaw taala address them as he addressed their ancestors Hola Hola. Hola. Hola. About a Colombia Comoros on loan seven more about Cardona, Vietnam Hamid on

00:41:48--> 00:41:50

any questions or comments?

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

Okay, then

00:42:04--> 00:42:04


00:42:12--> 00:42:46

absolutely, absolutely. They were conscious of the fact because they saw that's why a cadet como psycho Anton trombone. So the science took them while they saw it. So they they witnessed that it wasn't like, you know, all of a sudden they went to sleep and they didn't realize they realized that they were killed by this site and the lightning bolt earthquake altogether. They realize that and then when they are alive, they are obviously they realize that they were now resurrected after death.

00:42:49--> 00:43:04

But this is the problem rather, they do not, do not otherwise they would have followed a different path. That's why we talked about the near death experience and the second chance at life. So here you have a second chance at life.

00:43:06--> 00:43:13

Subhanallah Caleb, this is why Allah azza wa jal is reminding you that this is such an amazing favor. He brought you back to life.

00:43:15--> 00:43:20

So many others were destroyed. And that was it. Game over?

00:43:21--> 00:43:22

No second chance.

00:43:34--> 00:43:36

Subhanak longer. Yes, brother.

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

The last last straw.

00:43:44--> 00:43:47

I think I do know what you mean.

00:43:49--> 00:43:56

Again, they kept on doing what they were doing all the way up until the time of peace, Ali Salam, right.

00:43:59--> 00:44:13

In the in the eyes of the Christians. They're the ones who crucified Jesus peace be upon him. And were insulting him and mocking him while he was, again according to their belief while he was on the cross. By the way,

00:44:15--> 00:44:17

if they truly did that,

00:44:18--> 00:44:19

it is irrelevant.

00:44:22--> 00:44:26

Whether he really was crucified or not, because we say he was not right.

00:44:28--> 00:44:51

What if they truly believed it was him? And they were doing what they were doing? It's still a serious crime. Right? So they were mocking this prophet of Allah subhanaw taala. On the wall, he was on the cross. So they continued all the way up until the time of ACE Ali Salam. They killed

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

the Zachary Ali salah. They killed Yeshua his son alayhi salam most of them prophets. Great, great pride.

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

Fatah Allah azza wa jal all the way up until the time of

00:45:07--> 00:45:12

and of course, up to the time of the Prophet SAW Selim, you saw how much he suffered with them.

00:45:13--> 00:45:26

And it continues the story continues. Allah Akbar, Allahu Akbar, and it will continue as the Prophet SAW Selim told us in the authentic hadith to continue until the end of time.

00:45:34--> 00:45:40

Baraka Luffy comes from hammock Allah over Hamdi, Kenisha do Allah Allah Allah hola and stop for one or two they
