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

we continue with our Tafseer

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

ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says in this area now there will be less than a shape on a virgin Smilla Rahmanir Rahim

00:00:52--> 00:01:04

00:01:43--> 00:01:55

haywire to Lunan. The Yean EBV will help people early Kirby also work we do

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

in this area.

00:02:01--> 00:02:07

Allah subhanaw taala continues to tell us about many Surah eel

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

and what they requested

00:02:12--> 00:02:15

after what we mentioned last time,

00:02:16--> 00:02:40

where they requested of Musa alayhis salam that he prayed to Allah subhanaw taala. to do is to stop to ask Allah subhanaw taala for rain. And we said the context of this is that they are in the period of a tea right the wilderness, they are lost now. They are experiencing this punishment

00:02:41--> 00:03:00

in the wilderness. So they immediately start asking Musa alayhis salam for things. What are we going to do out here? What can we do? pray to ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, let him give us water in this wilderness area. It is this commerce and economy that we spoke about last time.

00:03:02--> 00:03:48

Now they're asking for something more. Remember again, they're in their place of punishment, right? But they're still asking they want more. They keep asking of things of Allah subhanaw taala instead of asking themselves, what are we doing wrong? How do we make up? How do we explain it? You find them asking for more and more from Allah subhanaw taala and this is nothing but the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that gives the wrongdoers the audacity to ask for more after they sin. And you see this in different places in the Quran, where they repenting, and then they ask Allah azza wa jal for more

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

Subhanallah Chiara

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

in this situation.

00:03:55--> 00:03:58

They come to Musa alayhis salam and they say, Yeah, Musa

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

Subhan Allah, it seems like they're addressing him by his first name.

00:04:05--> 00:04:07

Do you address your father by his first name?

00:04:08--> 00:04:09

You don't do you?

00:04:10--> 00:04:18

It's not respectful to address your dad. I don't address my dad by his first name, but I don't think any of you do either.

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

Yeah, Musa

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


00:04:24--> 00:04:47

Len NUS bill. Norris, Len. Len in the Arabic language. We will not and we will never Subhanallah Lenise Bira Allah army wide. We will not we will never be patient with just one type of food.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

And they are referring to the miracle food that Allah subhanaw taala gave them in a tea in the wilderness. And this is a man was

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

And while

00:05:02--> 00:05:13

you may say those are two types in the end it's like one because that's all they're having. A man was Salwa right what was a man?

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

Let's get the audience involved as well. A man

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


00:05:26--> 00:05:29

Okay, there are some different opinions but

00:05:32--> 00:05:36

there are some very clear ones as well you guys forgot what is Ullman

00:05:37--> 00:05:42

the miracle food. Let's put it this way it's definitely something sweet

00:05:43--> 00:05:48

seems to be something sweet and this is why you will find some Vaseline say that it is honey.

00:05:49--> 00:05:50


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

or a honey like sweet

00:05:55--> 00:06:10

elmen And we said that it may also be a general word, okay for different things that Allah subhanaw taala gave them as part of his favor upon them, and men. And we mentioned the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim.

00:06:12--> 00:06:29

And men was set one set one being the quail bird, this is the protein that they're getting. Right? So and men could be the carbohydrate. And the protein that they're getting is this lovely quail,

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

bird meat and men was selwa,

00:06:34--> 00:06:37

but they seem to be sick of it.

00:06:40--> 00:07:15

Then must be Rolla Pyramyd wide. We will not be patient with this one type of food. We are just always eating men was Salwa. Remember, it's a miracle, right? You don't find this in the desert in the wilderness. Okay, this is something Allah azza wa jal essentially gave you a need for you. They are refusing it now. It seems Allahu Alem that they are. They're bored. They're sick of it. They don't want it anymore.

00:07:18--> 00:07:24

Most of them have a series see that as a sin in itself.

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

A sin in itself,

00:07:28--> 00:07:33

to be sick of the blessings of Allah upon you.

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

This is what's happening here.

00:07:38--> 00:07:45

Men Loonette but they will never they don't want this blessing anymore. They want something else.

00:07:46--> 00:07:57

We saw that also with Sega, the people of Sega. When Allah subhanaw taala bless them. And again, they asked Allah to make their lives more difficult Subhanak era

00:07:59--> 00:08:00

This is a serious sin.

00:08:02--> 00:08:11

If that is indeed the case, this is a serious sin. And this warrants losing that blessing.

00:08:13--> 00:08:24

When you're sick of the blessings of Allah azza wa jal, when you do not thank Allah subhanaw taala properly and show your gratitude for his blessings. Allah takes the blessings from you.

00:08:25--> 00:08:33

So they say Lemnos better Allah Parham in wide fan, the Roland rom buck. So call on your Lord

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

son, some Vaseline,

00:08:40--> 00:08:47

try to see this request in a brighter light.

00:08:49--> 00:08:52

That it's not so much that they are sick of the blessing. But

00:08:55--> 00:09:05

is it so hard to understand that sometimes if we keep eating the same thing over and over that we like to kind of change?

00:09:07--> 00:09:11

It seems somewhat reasonable,

00:09:13--> 00:09:14

some somewhat

00:09:15--> 00:09:23

understandable, so they were eating this all the time, and they seem to want something else.

00:09:25--> 00:09:29

If that is indeed the case, then we have to try to understand

00:09:31--> 00:09:42

why. As we will see in the rest of the area. Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about punishment and his anger upon them.

00:09:43--> 00:09:48

And therefore you will find some back and forth between them have a serene on this as

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

well. A lot of them seem to understand it this way.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

And there does seem to be something more there has to be something more

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

It does not seem that it is that they are just saying, we were having this all the time we want to try something else. They seem to be challenging. They seem to be mocking.

00:10:14--> 00:10:38

And therefore, if we see it in that light Lemnos Berala ta meanwhile head, fed the ruler now Rob back call on your Lord. If you want to see it in a bright light, he would say they are saying Ron back your Lord, because his dua is going to be more acceptable than their request. If not,

00:10:39--> 00:10:43

and this might seem closer to the meaning.

00:10:44--> 00:10:51

This is more of their mockery. Call on your Lord is He not your Lord as well? Allah

00:10:54--> 00:10:57

so call on your Lord federal law and Rob buck.

00:10:58--> 00:11:02

Your courage Ilana in between and

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

so now what are they asking for? They are asking for what the Earth can provide for them.

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

of its herbs and vegetables luckily.

00:11:17--> 00:11:18

What is

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

a type of cucumber type of vegetable that's close to a cucumber?

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

Well for me, what is full?

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


00:11:30--> 00:11:53

no for me ha. What is full? No. Garlic. This is the strongest opinion that form here is tomb. Yes, and this is also the recitation of the Fabula I've been Miss rude while the Allahu Han even though it is not considered one of the 10 recitations that are mutawatir

00:11:54--> 00:12:06

but most of them have been said and foam here is garlic and it seems to make sense and it goes well with the rest of the vegetables that were mentioned.

00:12:07--> 00:12:17

How however, some of the will facility and also of the tabular 18 They said that it is wheat.

00:12:18--> 00:12:26

It is wheat, or that which you could use to make bread so they missed having bred

00:12:29--> 00:12:44

me Mattoon it will armed me luckily her work if you were fooled me her. Why they see her and it's lentils while bizarrely and it's onions.

00:12:46--> 00:13:03

So now, they would like to replace the miracle food that Allah azza wa jal gave them with these types of things these vegetables, onion and garlic and herbs and stuff like that

00:13:10--> 00:13:16

the response comes Carla at a step DeLuna lady who deniability who are hired,

00:13:18--> 00:13:21

do you replace that which is lower,

00:13:22--> 00:13:27

less in status with that which is better?

00:13:28--> 00:13:42

You are perfectly content to replace this with this other stuff DeLuna lady who have been lady who are hired who requests these things, when they have and when was Salwa

00:13:44--> 00:13:58

when they have that which is better in many different ways. Number one, it's more delicious. Number two, it is miracle food. Number three, it is from Allah subhanaw taala Allah chose that for you.

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

And now you are asking for something else. The ronin Arabic calling your Lord, tell him to bring out from the earth.

00:14:11--> 00:14:15

You are in the wilderness now where do you want to get this from?

00:14:17--> 00:14:26

Subhan Allah the headaches they gave to Musa alayhis salam called a stubby DeLuna under the hood Adena below me who are higher

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

mill to miss run

00:14:33--> 00:14:36

for in Mercer Antrim.

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

At the start the new

00:14:41--> 00:14:42


00:14:43--> 00:14:56

is a verse and a phrase which became very popular, which you will hear all the time, because it refers to a state of mind.

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

A state of mind where

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

The human being will go after something which is less and lower in status

00:15:09--> 00:15:18

over something which is better, especially if Allah subhanaw taala gave you that which is better, honor you.

00:15:19--> 00:15:28

And then you choose that which is less in status and worse. Let us step up the road and the who are undeniably loving who are higher.

00:15:31--> 00:15:32

If you talk about

00:15:33--> 00:15:54

the book of Allah azza wa jal, the words of ALLAH, the guidance of Allah, the guidance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if someone is talking to you about these gems from the Quran, or from the Sunnah, or from the sayings of our great scholars,

00:15:55--> 00:16:20

and then you come and you start to quote, A and B, Joe Schmo this person, that person this philosopher, that philosopher at the stem deluded lady who hadn't been living who, how where we are, where's your mind whereas your intellect, when you replace that, which is your you exchange that which is lower with that, which is better

00:16:22--> 00:16:35

became something almost like a proverb at a sturdy Runa lady who will lead the world and you can think of so many examples maybe examples that happened in your own lives.

00:16:36--> 00:16:53

Have you have you thought of this, can you tell me an example that happened to you or that you saw and you thought to yourself at a step delude the lady who deniability who are hired any examples of this interesting ones?

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

You will hear it all the time

00:16:58--> 00:17:08

at the stem DeLuna lady who didn't have a living who were hired, if someone constantly does that, then they are similar to the hood in their request

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

to miss run for in local NASA Anton

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

me too.

00:17:23--> 00:17:24


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

go to

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

miss Ron.

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

We will talk about Mr. Ron

00:17:35--> 00:17:41

for in the lack of Massa alto you will get what you are requesting you will get what you are after there.

00:17:44--> 00:17:47

Here we have a famous

00:17:49--> 00:17:54

difference of opinion between scholars about myths

00:17:57--> 00:18:00

and it is quite understandable because it has to do with Benny Sahil.

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

Me to miss run

00:18:05--> 00:18:06


00:18:08--> 00:18:16

recitation here is Miss salon with an LF and 10 when right Miss run.

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

And this is why many of the scholars of Tafseer

00:18:22--> 00:18:45

rightly said this is any town any city this is the meaning of Mr. Owen Mason here being a general term for some town or city. Everything will just run meaning go to any of the towns or cities and you will get what you asked for of

00:18:46--> 00:18:51

the herbs, the vegetables and the garlic and onion everything that you want

00:18:52--> 00:18:58

me to miss run based on this recitation with the Elif and the tenwek.

00:18:59--> 00:19:06

There are some scholars as well, who maintained that this is Egypt,

00:19:08--> 00:19:09

the Egypt we know

00:19:10--> 00:19:13

that Egypt that they were thrown out of

00:19:15--> 00:19:16

and that they had to escape.

00:19:20--> 00:19:36

Of course those who said otherwise said it is clearly with an NF and when this is some town or city it's indefinite a town or city Miss run with 10 when not Miss Ra.

00:19:37--> 00:19:45

If it was Egypt, it would be Miss without elephant and when because it is memoriam in Assaraf.

00:19:48--> 00:19:56

So it will be Misra and we see that in the Quran. Right? And he said he will qu Misra right

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

Imagine the poverty and even before him

00:20:04--> 00:20:06

and emammal Farah

00:20:08--> 00:20:11

and many others, they said

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

that in this situation it may be Egypt

00:20:17--> 00:20:28

and we have the Elif and it was recited with 10 we and they made a comparison between that and between the verses of Surah till Insan.

00:20:30--> 00:20:34

Okay, where Allah subhanaw taala says In the beginning of it

00:20:36--> 00:20:37


00:20:38--> 00:20:40

theory in SLS, ILA

00:20:42--> 00:20:48

was our hero. Hello shahid. alarum Hello, Shahid.

00:20:49--> 00:20:57

Why or why do we mentioned that Salah sila. When we recite this, we recited like that with a Fatah. Right?

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

Yes, Celestra. What are the less than 10? When was your 10? When,

00:21:07--> 00:21:13

but in authentic recitations as well. So let's see, what

00:21:14--> 00:21:25

was our era 10 When we have an authentic recitation where it is read with the 10 Wiem, like Mr. Owen, and another one where it is read Salah sila,

00:21:27--> 00:21:28

same thing with our

00:21:30--> 00:21:35

same thing with a very high wire here are

00:21:36--> 00:21:40

our real power here. I mean,

00:21:41--> 00:21:56

same thing. So they made a comparison with that. And remember, Comrie maintained that even those who read it that way, may actually mean and understand it and interpret it to be Egypt.

00:21:57--> 00:21:58


00:22:02--> 00:22:03

The Bible

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

says it very clearly.

00:22:08--> 00:22:11

They asked to be returned to Egypt.

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

In fact,

00:22:15--> 00:22:20

they were so audacious about it. They said we need to appoint a leader

00:22:23--> 00:22:26

to take us back to Egypt. Subhan Allah Chiara

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

why? They said,

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

they said,

00:22:34--> 00:22:36

We want to eat meat.

00:22:37--> 00:22:57

We remember the fish that we used to eat in Egypt Subhana they don't remember the persecution, the horrendous horrific persecution that they were under that Allah azza wa jal saved them from. They said, We remember the fish we used to eat in Egypt.

00:22:58--> 00:23:08

And then they mentioned some of these vegetables, and the vegetables and the melons and the leeks, and the onion and the garlic soup.

00:23:10--> 00:23:13

So they're clearly mentioned some of these things.

00:23:14--> 00:23:16

It's almost like they figured

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

going back to Egypt is even better. So they're telling us Ali Salam, why don't you bring us here? Take us back to Egypt. It's better.

00:23:30--> 00:23:31

To miss Iran.

00:23:35--> 00:23:42

There are two narrations that are not with Awatea. There are at a Shuddha

00:23:44--> 00:23:51

one for an Hassan bursary and the other for the moment Amish. So let me run Amash.

00:23:54--> 00:24:03

Both of those narrations which are not multilateral, so we do not recite, recite it this way. They mentioned Miss rock

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

with a fat hat and without

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

tan when

00:24:09--> 00:24:10

they bill to Misra

00:24:12--> 00:24:18

obviously for them, the answer is clear. This is Egypt. This is not any talent.

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

And how much was asked

00:24:23--> 00:24:32

which Egypt which sorry, which missile is this? And he said the one where the ruler is solid Ibn Ali

00:24:34--> 00:24:42

sila Ibn Ali being one of the first to rule Egypt during the Ambassade period

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

and federal embassy or marhaba sia so with this is the Sega and he's confirming the Egypt where Salah has been adding is ruling so it is no other myths of no other town it is Egypt

00:25:01--> 00:25:03

But as we sent

00:25:04--> 00:25:08

most of the facility in say that this is any town.

00:25:09--> 00:25:12

What does this mean? It means Musa alayhis salam

00:25:13--> 00:25:24

again, in what seems to be the stronger opinion this is Musa answering them at a step DeLuna lady who hadn't been laid the why and this is a rebuke a clear rebuke.

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

How can you exchange that which is lower with that which is better?

00:25:30--> 00:25:35

It'd be a cool Muslim girl to go to any town.

00:25:36--> 00:25:39

Go to any of these cities and you will get what you're after.

00:25:42--> 00:25:43

This is what you want to

00:25:45--> 00:25:48

go to it. You will get it there

00:25:54--> 00:26:03

in this situation, we said this is Musa Ali Salam replying. Some scholars have tafsir said that this might be the response of Allah azza wa jal

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

it could be a true Miss run for in Nulato masa alto, this is what you want, you will get go to any town or any place. Of course, it applies to Egypt as well.

00:26:19--> 00:26:32

If the meaning was go to Egypt, and you will get this, this is what they wanted in the first place. Right? This is what they experienced in the first place in Egypt. Go back to Egypt and we will have whatever you want

00:26:34--> 00:26:37

me to miss run for in Kumasi.

00:26:39--> 00:26:43

Remember what we said in the beginning at the possibility

00:26:44--> 00:26:57

that this is a warranted action one that is understandable and plausible. They got tired of one food they want the different types of food.

00:26:58--> 00:27:12

But the response is clear. To show that what they're asking for is wrong. Is it a sin per se? Maybe the ones who are looking at it a little bit more brightly will say no, it's not a sin.

00:27:13--> 00:27:21

But they shouldn't be asking this or anything of Allah subhanaw taala especially since this is something that he gave them

00:27:22--> 00:27:24

and he chose for them.

00:27:26--> 00:27:28


00:27:31--> 00:27:32

say the bottom

00:27:34--> 00:27:36

says otherwise.

00:27:38--> 00:27:48

And he says very clearly about his opinion. He said that I support the opinion which many of them who have serene

00:27:50--> 00:27:56

felt was not the right of fear or is not the correct opinion.

00:27:59--> 00:28:05

Safe but on Rahimullah interprets and sort of an odd by the way.

00:28:07--> 00:28:12

They interpret at a step the Lunella the who I deniability who are hired here

00:28:13--> 00:28:18

and this whole episode, figuratively and metaphorically.

00:28:20--> 00:28:21


00:28:23--> 00:28:26

Allah subhanaw taala put you in the wilderness for a reason.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:28:32--> 00:28:48

has chosen you. But you kept on this amazing and reneging on your promises to Allah azza wa jal and your covenants. Now Allah subhanaw taala has decreed for you to be in the wilderness for wisdom

00:28:49--> 00:28:55

because he is going to now raise up a new generation of the Israelites that are not like you.

00:28:58--> 00:29:01

This is a time of learning.

00:29:02--> 00:29:07

This is a time of introspection of rectification.

00:29:09--> 00:29:22

This is not the time for you to be thinking about fish and meat and onion and garlic and herbs and cucumber and lentils.

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

So say it Koto says

00:29:28--> 00:29:55

he's essentially telling them okay, this is what you want. This is what you're after. I was preparing you Allah is was preparing you for something great. Allah was preparing you to enter the blessed land. Allah subhanaw taala was preparing you for leadership for global leadership. And you are sitting there preoccupied with the onions and the garlic and the lentils. So going back,

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

going back to your boring

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

routine life,

00:30:02--> 00:30:15

going back to your useless, disgraceful existence, back to your Egypt, that you escaped that you were being persecuted and go back to your lentils and your onion in your garlic

00:30:21--> 00:30:42

it's on another level. When you when you see it that way, when you think of it that way that this is not just talking about how can you request onions and garlic and lentils when you have men was Salwa?

00:30:45--> 00:30:56

Because if you think of it that way, then you might indeed say to yourself, is it such a sin? Some of the Vaseline said, it's not.

00:30:57--> 00:31:00

They got a little bit tired of the food, they asked for something else.

00:31:02--> 00:31:03

Mind you, we said,

00:31:04--> 00:31:10

when we think about it, we may say that indeed there must be something there. Maybe they were mocking.

00:31:12--> 00:31:28

Maybe they indeed, were sick of the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala. And maybe indeed, this was their way of rejecting Allah and His commands and His blessings upon them.

00:31:30--> 00:31:32

And seeing one of the reasons say it's bottom

00:31:36--> 00:31:45

defends and corroborate that opinion, is what what comes right after that? If you were to listen for intellectual muscle tone,

00:31:47--> 00:31:57

while boring, but highly vigilant to Elon Musk, and then he starts talking about disgracing them, and the wrath and anger of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:31:58--> 00:32:06

And if we do not understand it that way, then some may rightly and justifiably ask,

00:32:07--> 00:32:16

what is the connection? And this is why there was this back and forth between with a city is it a sin? Is it not a sin?

00:32:18--> 00:32:21

Is there something more? Why did he mention

00:32:23--> 00:32:33

a villa when Miss Ghana will have all of these things in connection to what they request now to

00:32:34--> 00:32:43

pray to Allah subhanaw taala so that the Earth can bring forth for them these things that they miss having?

00:32:45--> 00:32:46

Is it clear now,

00:32:48--> 00:33:17

if we understand that, this way, this is on another level, Allah subhanaw taala has chosen you and is preparing you for something great and you cannot get your your heads out of the sand, where you have the garlic and the onions and the lentils. This is now preparation for something that is going to be history changing. earth shattering

00:33:18--> 00:33:30

at the sistema de Luna lady who hadn't been living who are higher. So now the meaning would be you are replacing you are thinking about these things.

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

When Allah subhanaw taala is preparing you for something so much greater go you are not worth it. You don't deserve it.

00:33:42--> 00:33:58

Go whether it's Egypt or any other town, go there and you will get exactly what you're after. You are not the people that will be able and that deserve now, this level of leadership

00:33:59--> 00:34:02

able to miss run in electron

00:34:04--> 00:34:11

Wallah hota hai Allah Allah wa sallahu wa salam O Allah kala Nabina Muhammad, but there's a Kamala who

00:34:13--> 00:34:16

if there are any questions or comments

00:34:18--> 00:34:19

the floor is yours

00:34:27--> 00:34:29

using the code they come to this

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

video, who knows?

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

Yes, the Jews. Okay. How do they know it already? They seem to have had it in Egypt.

00:34:44--> 00:34:49

They had it in Egypt, and they miss it now. And this is what they're after.

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


00:35:01--> 00:35:02

anything else

00:35:07--> 00:35:07


00:35:09--> 00:35:10


00:35:13--> 00:35:17

in all these different online as your

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

life you

00:35:24--> 00:35:26

ever believed in Allah?

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

And why?

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

So, as we saw several times, thank you for bringing that up. There were people in Bani Israel who are who are on another level of piety and obedience, and that's why they were chosen then.

00:35:53--> 00:35:57

And we know so many prophets from them.

00:35:58--> 00:35:59

I know him Salem.

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

But there were many of them as well that were

00:36:04--> 00:36:25

at this level of sinfulness and disobedience and rejection and mockery of Allah subhanaw taala so were there of course there were otherwise they were they would never have been chosen that way and had that status that Allah subhanaw taala gave them but at the same time, they had many that were

00:36:27--> 00:36:43

at this very strange level of rejection and constant you know, constantly returning to it. Even after Allah subhanaw taala saved them brought them back to life from the dead.

00:36:45--> 00:36:53

Allow allow the accepted the repentance, give them another chance and so on and so on. Once one chance after another yeah

00:37:03--> 00:37:03

they will

00:37:05--> 00:37:13

descend into Egypt there are they going lower? Allah, Allah, Allahu Allah, possibly.

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

Maybe they were in an elevated place Is it is it elevated?

00:37:20--> 00:37:21

The Sinai

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


00:37:27--> 00:37:30

I'd never let it go down to

00:37:34--> 00:37:39

you are already on top you want to go down go down. Yeah, it's it's very interesting.

00:37:42--> 00:37:43

And indeed,

00:37:45--> 00:37:57

they were clearly their minds are somewhere else. Their minds are somewhere else. God forbid. God forbid the Muslim ummah be similar.

00:37:59--> 00:38:01

Because the old man now

00:38:03--> 00:38:05

that is set

00:38:06--> 00:38:08

for this kind of

00:38:09--> 00:38:17

crucial civilizational leadership role is the Muslim ummah.

00:38:19--> 00:38:26

So the Muslim ummah busy with its sadness in its form, and bustle,

00:38:27--> 00:38:32

instead of this great role that Allah subhanaw taala wants for it.

00:38:35--> 00:38:43

It seems Yes, there are some parts, some elements of the Ummah that are busy with the garlic and the onions.

00:38:46--> 00:39:04

Again, figuratively, nobody's asking you not to or to stop eating garlic or onions or anything else. Okay? These are of the three bytes that Allah subhanaw taala has given. But if this is the extent of what you're looking at of your ambition,

00:39:05--> 00:39:13

then there's definitely a problem there. This is not what Allah subhanaw taala created us for. The cow said it.

00:39:15--> 00:39:35

Sure what cow? We are not Hindus, we don't worship cows. The cow said it. I was not created for this. You heard this? How many have heard this? Raise your hand. This is not an Indian tale, by the way. Just so you know, it's not a Hindu tail. How many heard anybody nobody.

00:39:36--> 00:39:40

The cow said, I was not created for this.

00:39:43--> 00:39:44

Because it was being written.

00:39:46--> 00:39:53

They were writing the cow. So the cow said this is not what I was created for. Other animals were created for writing.

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

So then, the people said, a cow speaks the prophets. I said

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

I'm sent I believe in this and so do Abu Bakr and Allah

00:40:06--> 00:40:08

Subhanallah Cara and Abu Bakr and Omar were not there

00:40:10--> 00:40:15

the speaking on their behalf this shows you the status of Abu Bakr and Omar

00:40:16--> 00:40:28

the Couser it was not created for this. No Mama needs to realize this is not why we're here. Humanity should understand this is not why we're here.

00:40:30--> 00:40:35

Just for food and drink and pleasure otherwise we're living like animals

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

at this step dealing with a lady who hadn't been living in Ohio

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


00:40:44--> 00:40:46

me to miss run a commercial to

00:40:48--> 00:40:50

did this happen or not?

00:40:53--> 00:40:54

Did it happen or not?

00:40:55--> 00:40:58

Scholars into a different set? Yes.

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

Allah subhanaw taala granted them Allah gave them what they wanted.

00:41:06--> 00:41:09

I mean, cuz he says they did not.

00:41:11--> 00:41:21

Because because this was mockery, because this was part of their ingratitude. So Allah did not give them what they wanted.

00:41:23--> 00:41:32

Others may have sent a bill to Muslim for intellectual muscle tone. If this was indeed Egypt, did they actually go back to Egypt?

00:41:33--> 00:41:50

Differences of opinion again, between scholars because of some some of the items, the Quran that seemed to indicate that bene Israel in inheritant that which Allah destroyed for Iran, and the Egyptians.

00:41:53--> 00:41:55

So, but

00:41:56--> 00:41:57

excuse me,

00:41:58--> 00:42:05

if we go with the opinion that indeed, they were given this, Allah said, okay,

00:42:06--> 00:42:10

they admit, in the coma centum you have been granted what you have requested

00:42:12--> 00:42:16

is not evidence of Allah being pleased with them,

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

being displeased with them

00:42:21--> 00:42:26

being displaced as we see in the rest of the ayah which we will talk about next time in sha Allah.

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

So just because Allah gave you in the dunya what you requested also is not an indication that he loves you be careful.

00:42:41--> 00:42:50

This is not an indication, sometimes Allah azza wa jal gives just to delay that person's punishment as we know from the IRS of Le Imran.

00:42:52--> 00:42:56

Do not think that it is good for you it is actually bad for you.

00:42:58--> 00:43:09

And this applies especially to the kuffaar who are swimming in fortunes and blessings. Yet they never worshipped Allah single day of their life.

00:43:10--> 00:43:14

This is this this this is not an indication of Allah's pleasure.

00:43:15--> 00:43:16


00:43:18--> 00:43:19

Quite the opposite.

00:43:22--> 00:43:34

The Imam I don't know if he's here he was reading from sort of straw. Man Can you read eulogy Lata Jana goofy Manisha when Iman moody?

00:43:35--> 00:43:37

Madonna who Jehan

00:43:39--> 00:43:55

whoever seeks something, once it hastily Allah azza wa jal will bring it for you hastily and give you what you're after, but eventually now to Johanna malaria villa, this is not an indication of pleasure.

00:43:56--> 00:43:57


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

I remember the point I forgot to mention to you about a disturbed DeLuna lady who deniability will hide

00:44:06--> 00:44:12

here they are replacing that which is lower with that which is higher and better.

00:44:14--> 00:44:16

And that is dumb enough.

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

And silly enough.

00:44:21--> 00:44:22


00:44:24--> 00:44:25

in our Sharia

00:44:28--> 00:44:32

the Imams talked about an important fundamental rule.

00:44:34--> 00:44:42

A fundamental rule that says not only should you be seeking that which is better

00:44:43--> 00:44:48

than that, which is lower or worse, you shouldn't be seeking that which is higher and better

00:44:49--> 00:44:52

from that which is good.

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

So in other words, choose the best of the good options.

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

When you have two good options choose the better one. When you have two bad options, choose

00:45:10--> 00:45:11

the one that is less bad.

00:45:12--> 00:45:21

Hi, you will Highline and you have to avoid shallow shallow rain. That's what our Sharia talks about.

00:45:22--> 00:45:25

When you talk about Muslim benefit,

00:45:26--> 00:45:27

and when you talk about harm,

00:45:29--> 00:45:35

do that which is more beneficial even if the other one is less beneficial, which do you choose the more beneficial

00:45:36--> 00:45:48

so it's on another level of ridiculousness, to choose that which is harmful or worse, over that and which is better or beneficial.

00:45:50--> 00:45:51

Allah Allah Allah

00:45:56--> 00:46:04

anything else? We'll leave it there inshallah. Baraka Luffy comes pelikulang shadow Allah Allah Allah, Allah to Willeke
