Come there, let me die. Let me

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

just leave honestly, you know, I've even had advice and the law earlier or somebody who would tell me again woman Tebbe heartbeat, certainly, you know, we've been supplanted by Milena in them

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

and I knew when I came hacking won't be shocking you suddenly were silly and leave the community suddenly a

00:00:25 --> 00:00:49

mighty I suppose investments from profiting from that sort of set of demos over family righteous companions and all those that follow them provide guidance until the day of judgment I mean, glory v2 You will love no knowledge have we accept that which you have taught us in the new or the old one the old wise, my dear brothers and sisters As Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

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

we continue with the Tafseer of Surah two Mahara

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

and today

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

we will be explaining the following as

00:01:05 --> 00:01:08

a last high says about our origins

00:01:11 --> 00:01:19

in the INA ramen one lady in one saw saw ve naman

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

Na wa Ramadan saw the

00:01:30 --> 00:01:36

idol nine dot d him 101 90 Him one

00:01:38 --> 00:01:39


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

this is an idea

00:01:44 --> 00:01:47

whose interpretation is not that simple.

00:01:49 --> 00:01:50

And this is why

00:01:51 --> 00:01:56

it is an idea about which scholars are different.

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

And interestingly and

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

which they've been taking over him a whole lot includes

00:02:05 --> 00:02:08

in a book of his where he singles out

00:02:09 --> 00:02:15

verses whose interpretation may be difficult, and

00:02:17 --> 00:02:22

may be somewhat contentious with differences between scholars.

00:02:26 --> 00:02:30

In this verse, Allah subhanaw taala tells us

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33

that those who believe

00:02:35 --> 00:02:37

and Alladhina Hannu

00:02:38 --> 00:02:40

identified as the Jews,

00:02:41 --> 00:02:49

and the Christians and the Serbians. Whoever believes in Allah, and the last day

00:02:50 --> 00:02:59

and does righteous good deeds, that they will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear shall be upon them.

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

And they will not be or experience any sadness.

00:03:07 --> 00:03:11

Keep in mind now, the previous verse that we were talking about,

00:03:13 --> 00:03:23

we were talking about the previous verse, Allah subhanaw taala was telling us more of the stories of Benissa eel and what they did.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:34

And that verse concluded with how Allah subhanaw taala had covered them and cast upon them

00:03:35 --> 00:03:37


00:03:38 --> 00:03:42

and mascara and Allah subhanaw taala was angry with them.

00:03:43 --> 00:03:48

And now we come to this verse in the Medina, Medina How do when Nazzaro Saudi

00:03:50 --> 00:04:03

and inshallah we will come to that when we try to explore the context of the verse, but first let us understand the verse itself and then we will try to connect it with the previous verse

00:04:05 --> 00:04:14

in the Latina Airmen, indeed those who have believed this is a clear reference to the believers, the Muslims

00:04:16 --> 00:04:27

and he calls them a Latina woman. That is enough. That is how they are defined. Those who have believed if anyone exemplifies belief.

00:04:28 --> 00:04:30

They are the Muslims.

00:04:31 --> 00:04:45

The ones who submit completely to Allah subhanaw taala in Medina, Amman, even though he mentioned Eman later on in the ayah, but the true believers in Lebanon Allah Who are these, the Muslims, the ones who believe

00:04:47 --> 00:04:59

in all have the messengers of Allah and of course the seal of the messengers, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa only was sent in an Athena ama When levena heard you

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

Latina hairdo is a reference to the Jews.

00:05:06 --> 00:05:21

However, here he's referring to them with this description and Adina hadn't, and thus, scholars tried to understand why and what does this mean? So you didn't call them Elia who would know the next one, he called them an Asana.

00:05:22 --> 00:05:24

So he says Lavina had,

00:05:25 --> 00:05:44

and scholars gave different opinions, possibly that Lavina had, who here means those who came back, came back to Allah, repentant to Allah, as Allah subhanaw taala tells us and the other is that they will say in who dinner Lake,

00:05:45 --> 00:05:53

we have come back to you in repentance. And this is one of the possible explanations for why they are called me.

00:05:54 --> 00:05:55

Adina hudon

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

The other possibility is the fact that they are the descendants of Yehuda Duda.

00:06:08 --> 00:06:10

And therefore, they are called Alia.

00:06:16 --> 00:06:21

The ones who were with Prophet Musa alayhis salam,

00:06:22 --> 00:06:28

and the ones that all of these ideas of sort of Bukhara have been talking about when describing

00:06:29 --> 00:06:34

in Edina, Armani, when Adina has had what Nosara?

00:06:35 --> 00:06:39

Again, scholars tried to explain,

00:06:40 --> 00:06:41

and nasaga are the Christians,

00:06:42 --> 00:06:44

people who believed in

00:06:45 --> 00:06:48

and followed Isa, he said,

00:06:49 --> 00:06:51

why are they called nasarah?

00:06:53 --> 00:06:54


00:06:56 --> 00:07:06

two possible explanations, one, that they were people who helped each other now sorrow, the other one will about

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

that and are inside a Salam says Men, sorry, in Allah,

00:07:13 --> 00:07:18

the supporters that they supported each other, they were there for each other.

00:07:19 --> 00:07:46

Another possible explanation that they came from the land and the place of Isa Alayhis Salam, which is a nasira. In Arabic inositol known as Nazareth. That's why you keep hearing Jesus of Nazareth, right inositol in Arabic, and because of that, they were called an Asara.

00:07:47 --> 00:07:50

And this seems to be a strong opinion of Allahu Allah.

00:07:51 --> 00:08:01

Otherwise, we might wonder why they were not also given a description similar to the description of Alia hood. So a Latina had

00:08:02 --> 00:08:06

and it might have been a Latina. Now, some or turnouts,

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

we call the M nassarawa.

00:08:11 --> 00:08:18

So this may lend credence to the opinion that this is because they were from a Nazi regime from Nazareth.

00:08:19 --> 00:08:23

One NESARA was sabe is

00:08:24 --> 00:08:25

the Serbians

00:08:27 --> 00:08:28

who are a sabe

00:08:33 --> 00:08:35

who are a sub in

00:08:36 --> 00:08:38

any takers in the opinion

00:08:45 --> 00:08:48

Have you ever met anyone that call themselves a savvy

00:08:55 --> 00:08:55


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

that's one opinion

00:09:01 --> 00:09:03

those who worship the stars a

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

lot of difference of opinion about who has Saudi are anything else

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

that's sobbing.

00:09:16 --> 00:09:21

Couldn't be that this is one possible opinion those who worship stars

00:09:24 --> 00:09:30

and they possibly they existed before the Christians

00:09:31 --> 00:09:32

and some may say after

00:09:34 --> 00:09:42

a Serbia may be a group of people without D with no religion. This is one of

00:09:43 --> 00:09:44

the deen alone.

00:09:46 --> 00:09:53

Another opinion that Imam taba dimensions based on the opinions of the some of the facility or the tabulating,

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

they said they are a group between a Medusa, the Nigerians and the Jews.

00:10:01 --> 00:10:02

Somewhere in between.

00:10:04 --> 00:10:13

Another opinion was that they are people who are upon the fifth rock. What do we mean on the fifth rock?

00:10:14 --> 00:10:18

Meaning that they are believers.

00:10:19 --> 00:10:32

They are genuine believers upon the filter of Tel hate, but they don't have any particular affiliation with a religion or a prophet.

00:10:34 --> 00:10:45

And with that opinion, some may say that the people who've existed at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who were known as more heavy.

00:10:47 --> 00:11:02

They were believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala upon the fitrah upon the deen of Ibrahim. They may be they may come under this category, people that were upon the fitflop they were a people have to hate.

00:11:05 --> 00:11:10

Those who said they may have worshipped the stars or the angels,

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

popular opinion that they used to worship the angels said that they used to pray their five prayers, and they used to face the good luck. So they are like Muslims.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:31

This is why I'm entertaining. I said, the sabia are technically two groups.

00:11:33 --> 00:11:37

One that aren't believers, they are what

00:11:40 --> 00:11:42

they believe in the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:50

And they are praiseworthy, and the other group are blameworthy and they are not to believe us.

00:11:53 --> 00:12:17

This is part of where and why the confusion arises. But as we will see now, when we get further into the seat of this idea, it seems Allah Allah, the songs that are being referenced in this area are number one, redeem are the believers, not the other group.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:27

You might know from the Sierra, that a Serbia was a name

00:12:28 --> 00:12:37

that they use to categorize anyone who left their religion for another religion be that good or bad.

00:12:38 --> 00:12:45

And this is why the whooshing the key employees used to call the ones who became Muslim Sabi.

00:12:47 --> 00:12:55

And they would say sambar Fula so and so Saba, meaning when he left the religion of his forefathers, idol worship, because he became Muslim.

00:12:57 --> 00:13:01

So it was also used as a general term in that sense.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:15

So now, in the Lavina, ama, we're living in a herd when nassarawa was sobbing in an m&m in the day when your milk whatever it believes in Allah subhanaw taala and

00:13:16 --> 00:13:19

the Last Day, and does righteous good deeds

00:13:22 --> 00:13:26

in order to try to understand the meaning of the idea.

00:13:28 --> 00:13:37

Actually, before that, just kind of a show of hands, how many people can claim that they know that I've seen of this if properly?

00:13:38 --> 00:13:42

Okay, don't be modest, if you know that the CEO of the IRA is.

00:13:51 --> 00:13:59

One possible way that I find useful and helpful to understand the iron is first to understand

00:14:02 --> 00:14:05

who we are talking about.

00:14:06 --> 00:14:18

When we talk about these four categories, you see what we just define them? Yes, we define them. But now, if I ask you, these believers,

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

the Jews,

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

the Serbians, the Christians,

00:14:27 --> 00:14:33

which ones are we talking about? In which era? In which time?

00:14:37 --> 00:14:41

Are they before the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:45

Are they after the time of the Prophet?

00:14:48 --> 00:14:53

This is the first question we have to answer and it will clarify a lot of things for us.

00:14:56 --> 00:14:57

The question is clear

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


00:15:02 --> 00:15:04

we define the four categories?

00:15:05 --> 00:15:16

But are they those who existed before the title of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, or after the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:15:17 --> 00:15:18

we will get to

00:15:20 --> 00:15:21

talk about each one

00:15:26 --> 00:15:29

Hola Hola. Hola. The correct opinion.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:45

And then I will talk about why the other opinion may not be the correct one, the correct opinion is that this is a reference to those categories before the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:15:47 --> 00:15:49

not at the time of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam,

00:15:51 --> 00:16:01

though, as we said, you will find both opinions in the tafsir. And some may even try to say that actually it includes both, we'll see how

00:16:05 --> 00:16:08

it seems that the crux of the AI is telling us

00:16:10 --> 00:16:23

that those who followed Musa alayhis salam called themselves Jews followed Musa alayhis salam and the uncorrupted tomura.

00:16:26 --> 00:16:30

Were upon the religion of Allah subhanaw taala at that time,

00:16:31 --> 00:16:43

those are the ones who believe in Allah, and the last day that did righteous good deeds, those are the ones who are going to attain eternal happiness

00:16:44 --> 00:16:45

that they have done.

00:16:48 --> 00:17:27

It seems that this idea is explaining to everyone that those who were at a time before the time of the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam are also going to be of the people of paradise. If they followed that prophet that was sent to them at their time. That was their submission that was there even more, that was their Islam. We will call them Muslims, those who followed Musa alayhis salam, they are Muslims who followed recyling Salam, they are Muslims.

00:17:29 --> 00:17:38

Not to be confused with what has been corrupted of the religion, and appears to us today we're talking about at the time.

00:17:41 --> 00:17:49

This was what was required of them, and therefore they will be of the people of paradise.

00:17:51 --> 00:17:58

In the London urban, we're living in a hurdle. Massara was in an M and amino Billa, when the omen.

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


00:18:02 --> 00:18:15

it also means there were those who claim to be followers of Musa alayhis salam, they did not believe in Allah and the Last Day, or they did not do righteous good deeds, we've been reading about them.

00:18:16 --> 00:18:21

One verse after another, those who disobeyed have been sloppy,

00:18:23 --> 00:18:30

and all of the violations that they committed and the disbelief which they

00:18:31 --> 00:18:32


00:18:33 --> 00:18:34

So yes.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:44

So of those people who call themselves Jews, or call themselves Christians, at the time of that Prophet,

00:18:46 --> 00:18:57

there will be those who did not follow properly, but those who didn't believe them Allah on the last day of the righteous good deeds, they are the ones who will attain happiness.

00:19:00 --> 00:19:06

Okay, they will have the reward from Allah subhanaw taala and there will be no fear or sadness upon them.

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

This is the way to understand what is being mentioned. Why this is why, for several reasons, one look at the context.

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

What was mentioned before

00:19:22 --> 00:19:25

those who disobeyed have Benissa in

00:19:27 --> 00:19:32

those who disappeared when you saw Him, those who incurred the Wrath of Allah azza wa jal,

00:19:34 --> 00:19:37

and they were humiliated.

00:19:40 --> 00:19:41

So now,

00:19:42 --> 00:19:45

those people may might be thinking, we are all doomed.

00:19:47 --> 00:20:00

Allah Subhana Allah says no Subhan Allah, many places in the Quran. Allah makes that exception. No, there are good doors. There are great people from Belize Ravi. And that's

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

Why Allah azza wa jal chose the benevolent villa in Alina Emanuel.

00:20:08 --> 00:20:25

These are the people that is telling us this. So, if you look at the context, you can clearly see how that may be what is being said and that is what is meant by those who came before the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:20:27 --> 00:20:28


00:20:33 --> 00:20:36

you look at where the idea has come.

00:20:39 --> 00:20:45

If you do not look at the tab seen as something holistic, you might think to yourself, Wait a second.

00:20:46 --> 00:21:00

Why did I jump from talking about the stories of buddies rollin and then go to, in a Latina, Latina hadn't? No, wait a minute, go to the next I afterwards, again, it goes back to the stories of video stream.

00:21:02 --> 00:21:12

So, actually what happened here is, this is all stories of the nissaki. This idea is coming in as an introductory idea.

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

It's an interjection to focus on this particular meaning

00:21:23 --> 00:21:26

to say to those Jews,

00:21:29 --> 00:21:33

if you believe in Allah and the Last Day, you will not be doomed to that

00:21:37 --> 00:21:38

that end

00:21:42 --> 00:21:45

the context Furthermore,

00:21:46 --> 00:22:09

And subhanAllah everything Obrador assured says that, indeed, this is this idea has come in this particular location, for a reason that every person who has eloquence and an appreciation of the language will immediately realize, and that is for this, to make that exception.

00:22:11 --> 00:22:17

Furthermore, it may be because Allah subhanaw taala is teaching them

00:22:18 --> 00:22:36

because we know that the Jews had this idea that paradise is for them alone, because they are the chosen people, that Allah takes people to paradise based on their ancestry, right.

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

If you were born a Jew, then that's it. You are chosen and you have the people of Paradise. Allah says no.

00:22:46 --> 00:22:52

All of these different categories, men and a biller when you're with us, you

00:22:53 --> 00:22:53


00:22:55 --> 00:22:56

this is not the way

00:22:57 --> 00:23:13

this is not the standard or the criteria by which you enter paradise or you go to hellfire. It's not about ancestry, as the prophets are seldom said in the authentic hadith, but obey Allah, Allah lamb use de NASA. So what about your ancestry? It's about your deeds.

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

More, lends more credence to why this may be

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

the meaning.

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

If it was,

00:23:26 --> 00:23:29

now, let's take the opposite. If it was indeed

00:23:32 --> 00:23:47

a reference to the Jews and Christians and Serbians after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then there is a very valid question, which is why did he pick out only those four categories?

00:23:50 --> 00:23:51


00:23:53 --> 00:23:55

Anyone, right?

00:23:56 --> 00:23:59

Pagan, only theist.

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

If there was a devil worshiper, someone who doesn't believe in God, though.

00:24:08 --> 00:24:17

Atheism, like that did not exist that anyone have any tradition and any belief. But I'm gonna be low on

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

what we mentioned only those

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

because he's trying to say

00:24:27 --> 00:24:46

that it is those specific groups who followed the genuine messengers sent to them by Allah and the book sent to them by Allah. This was the proper religiosity of Islam. And this is what will be accepted by Allah subhanaw taala.

00:24:47 --> 00:24:59

That's why he mentioned only those four categories otherwise, there's no need to mention the four categories. Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day anybody will be of the happy ones in the day of judgment but

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


00:25:01 --> 00:25:08

again, because this is a reference to those before the time of the prophets of Allah Lucinda, no worry is upon them

00:25:10 --> 00:25:17

because they followed their prophet at the time. And this is why Allahu Allah, Allah.

00:25:20 --> 00:25:24

The sabe ad here are the more hideous of them.

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

Just like he mentioned, those who believe and the Jews and the Christians, why? Because they had a bonafide prophet and a genuine book.

00:25:36 --> 00:25:41

And that was the correct email at the time. And the sabia as well.

00:25:43 --> 00:25:55

Because they worshipped Allah subhanaw taala in their own way, declaring his oneness at the time when there was no other way to worship.

00:25:56 --> 00:25:58

So they will also be accepted.

00:26:00 --> 00:26:02

More possible credence to

00:26:04 --> 00:26:13

the opinion that the ones being mentioned here are before the time of the mountains. And many of these points even Taymiyah mentions

00:26:15 --> 00:26:21

when he's talking about this idea, because he goes into detail about the different possibilities.

00:26:25 --> 00:26:33

But we know in many places in the Quran, Allah subhana wa Taala praises those who really

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

believed in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:26:39 --> 00:27:21

from the Jews and Christians from an Al Kitab. And that they will get double the reward because they believed in their prophet and then they believed in the prophets, I was 11 they became Muslims, the likes of Abdullah bin salaam, right and others. So why isn't it a reference to those as well? Some scholars have seen me may have tried to make that argument as well. It applies to those before the time of the Pitocin. And it also applies to those who came after the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but then the question remains, which I told you, which is, but then why does he only mentioned those four. He was also for the time after

00:27:22 --> 00:27:31

many of them was Ricky, the idol worshippers. They accepted Islam they became Muslim, not only people who were from Adela kita.

00:27:34 --> 00:27:40

If a Jew at the time of the Prophet SAW, Selim became Muslim, he will be of the happy ones into their judgment, right?

00:27:42 --> 00:27:44

Someone may ask but what if

00:27:46 --> 00:27:55

these were people from anarchy tab, and the people of the Book Jews or Christians at the time of the Prophet Oh Salam, who were still upon

00:27:58 --> 00:28:01

the way of the prophets that was sent to them.

00:28:03 --> 00:28:05

Were there any brothers and sisters?

00:28:07 --> 00:28:08

Or was it all corrupted?

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

There were

00:28:21 --> 00:28:22

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:28:24 --> 00:28:38

No brother at the time of the Prophet SAW Selim. Were there people, Jews or Christians who were still upon the original way of Asa or Mussolini? Salah? Yes. Yes, what?

00:28:40 --> 00:28:41

The healer? Okay.

00:28:45 --> 00:28:52

The prophets Allah syndrome tells us that Allah azza wa jal looked upon the earth surveyed the earth

00:28:53 --> 00:28:54

and he abhorred them.

00:28:56 --> 00:29:12

Arabs and non Arabs, oh, because no one was upon the correct path except some people from Heaven Kitab who were still upon the deed, the property

00:29:17 --> 00:29:19

will not be accepted from them.

00:29:22 --> 00:29:26

If they didn't believe in the Prophet sallallahu sallam, Muhammad Abdullah

00:29:30 --> 00:29:35

Massaro sabe Iman avid Avila sprayers that's what we just said.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:48

Even those if they were on, of course, if they were on a corrupted deed, this is definitely unacceptable. If they were on the way a very solid

00:29:49 --> 00:29:53

Oh, it's not enough. You have to follow the next profit now.

00:29:56 --> 00:29:59

Whenever the biller here when human error

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

can include

00:30:02 --> 00:30:04

the belief of the prophets of Allah.

00:30:06 --> 00:30:07

Then why didn't he mentioned

00:30:09 --> 00:30:12

this is why a lot of confusion exists today,

00:30:13 --> 00:30:22

especially against the backdrop of religious pluralism and relativism. So you will find people today saying

00:30:24 --> 00:30:27

the Jews and Christians that never amongst us today

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

we will be of the same ones.

00:30:35 --> 00:30:36

They believe in Allah and the Last Day

00:30:38 --> 00:30:47

they do good deeds and they're good and they are charitable and and and so they will be safe. You will find people saying this I

00:30:48 --> 00:30:50

understand that what I have in this week.

00:30:53 --> 00:31:01

Why didn't he mentioned the Prophet SAW Selim? Because he's talking about the prior because the IRS seems to be mentioning

00:31:02 --> 00:31:06

these categories before the time of the Prophet SAW Allah that he was.

00:31:07 --> 00:31:30

Thus, you cannot mention the names of the prophets of syndrome settlement terminal in WBI acid, and believe in Allah and the Last Day necessarily means believing not in one prophet, but all of the prophets peace be upon them all. That's why Allah azza wa jal tells us that the people of North they disbelieved in

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

the messengers, how many messages with the people have not received?

00:31:37 --> 00:31:37


00:31:38 --> 00:31:43

because this belief in one messenger is this belief.

00:31:45 --> 00:32:00

Do not have a choice. You cannot say I believe in this prophet, but not in this. So if you live to the time of the Prophet SAW Salah then belief, correct belief in Allah and the last thing is to follow His Prophet that he said to you,

00:32:01 --> 00:32:02

at least salatu salam

00:32:07 --> 00:32:08

or Amin Assad aside the

00:32:12 --> 00:32:13


00:32:15 --> 00:32:17

credence and context

00:32:18 --> 00:32:20

one of the possible

00:32:23 --> 00:32:26

Can we can we just keep it to the end of the shift. But

00:32:28 --> 00:32:30

I just don't want to lose my train of thought.

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

Possibly one that this also has a reason of Revelation.

00:32:39 --> 00:32:42

Though some of those narrations

00:32:43 --> 00:33:31

may have some weakness, but the weakness is not severe. And as it was mentioned, by many with different narrators in the Senate, this gives this story strength and it seems that it has a basis. And that is that segment about the Allah man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said O Messenger of Allah. And he started telling him about his teachings being before he became Muslim. Because if you know the story of Sandman in 36, you know that he was a fire worshiper. And then he saw the Christians, and then he became a Christian. And then he kept on going from one Christian priests to another, until finally, the last one, told him that this is the time where a

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

prophet is going to appear, follow him.

00:33:37 --> 00:33:44

And submit someone was very fond of these teachers of his. So he told the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:33:45 --> 00:33:46

about them,

00:33:47 --> 00:33:49

and how good they were, and how

00:33:51 --> 00:33:54

devoted they were in their worship of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:33:55 --> 00:34:10

Every time one of them would die, then he would ask him, guide me who is the best and most knowledgeable and he would guide them to the next one. So he told the prophet about that and he's asking essentially, where will they be?

00:34:14 --> 00:34:19

So Allah subhanaw taala revealed this

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


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

when you

00:34:23 --> 00:34:25

saw us on the heap, when

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

you when there will be nothing.

00:34:30 --> 00:34:35

So, it became very clear that these people will be saved.

00:34:38 --> 00:34:42

They will be part of these categories.

00:34:44 --> 00:34:47

Because they were upon the correct the,

00:34:48 --> 00:34:59

again, lending credence to the opinion this is talking about these categories before the time of the Prophet Salah lost in a narration

00:35:01 --> 00:35:03

I believe it was specifically by a Sunni.

00:35:04 --> 00:35:11

It mentioned that when the Prophet heard this, he said to Sandman, they are of the people of the fire.

00:35:12 --> 00:35:15

So Sandman was very dismayed

00:35:17 --> 00:35:19

and disheartened, when here it is.

00:35:21 --> 00:35:22

And then Allah revealed

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

but it seems to Allah Allah that that narration is weak.

00:35:30 --> 00:35:43

And that what actually happened is that the prophets of salaam did not say anything. And then Allah revealed this verse, as a response to sent man's question and a clarification for him.

00:35:45 --> 00:35:48

After which, obviously, his heart was at ease.

00:35:52 --> 00:35:54

A bit of a bus.

00:35:55 --> 00:35:56

Well the Allah Allah, Allah

00:35:58 --> 00:36:00

mentions that

00:36:02 --> 00:36:04

Allah subhanaw taala revealed this if

00:36:05 --> 00:36:06

it would have been a habit

00:36:08 --> 00:36:15

and then he revealed what may have been telling you that you understand Medina reality, I mean

00:36:21 --> 00:36:30

some of the narrators and scholars understood this opinion of Evan Abbas, that he is essentially saying,

00:36:31 --> 00:36:33

at here there is no

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

there is abrogation meaning what

00:36:37 --> 00:36:52

meaning as if the idea this the idea we are studying, is saying that the Jews and the Christians and the Sabbath as long as they believe in Allah and the Last Day, they will be saved. Regardless.

00:36:56 --> 00:36:59

Okay, even at the time of the prophets, Allah, Allah, Allah listen,

00:37:01 --> 00:37:07

and understanding, which is quite prevalent today as well, this is why I had mentioned this.

00:37:09 --> 00:37:13

And then he said, what might you tell me about it, as if that

00:37:16 --> 00:37:19

now abrogated the idea of

00:37:20 --> 00:37:24

this is no longer the case, or that will be accepted as a slap.

00:37:25 --> 00:37:27

But to be honest,

00:37:28 --> 00:37:31

in the narration, even Abbas does not use the word nessa

00:37:32 --> 00:37:38

he just says that this idea was revealed everything that I was revealed.

00:37:39 --> 00:37:49

And it seems even Kathy was trying to understand it as something other than nests or abrogation, just that, indeed, this

00:37:51 --> 00:37:54

applies to those who came before

00:37:56 --> 00:37:59

the time of the prophets, Allah salah, this will be accepted from them.

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

And when we do,

00:38:04 --> 00:38:27

that whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will not be accepted of them, they will be of the losers. This applies to after the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam because at that point, that people will be accepted except his love and belief in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because disbelieving in the prophets, Allah was disbelieving in all of the prophets.

00:38:32 --> 00:38:44

And this answers, what is frequently asked of the Christians as well, because they keep telling us about how the only ones who will be saved

00:38:46 --> 00:38:53

are the ones who believe in Jesus, He's the Savior. He came, according to them for redemption, right?

00:38:54 --> 00:38:58

For the explanation of their sins, He died

00:38:59 --> 00:39:00

for our sins as they say,

00:39:02 --> 00:39:09

as they clean Okay, very good. And according to them is God incarnate to Allah? I mean, she could.

00:39:10 --> 00:39:13

So what do you say about the people who came before?

00:39:17 --> 00:39:18

They didn't know that.

00:39:20 --> 00:39:24

Actually, Jesus is God, or Jesus is the Son of God because he hadn't come yet.

00:39:25 --> 00:39:27

makes absolutely no sense.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:45

In Islam, the answer is clear. Those who came before if they believed in their prophet, and the book that was sent to them, these are the Muslims. These are the submitters. As for this idea,

00:39:47 --> 00:39:48

people talk about today

00:39:50 --> 00:39:59

that the Jews and Christians of today who said even the Jews and the Christians who were upon what Musa Annalisa actually originate

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

Have a thought but did not believe in the process of settlement would not be accepted of them, then how can you say, the Jews and Christians of today will have completely corrupted the message, they will also be of the people of paradise based on this idea whenever their beloved, and they say yes, they believe in Allah and the last thing

00:40:22 --> 00:40:30

they do right is good deeds. So they will be also of the people of paradise. The other is very clear.

00:40:32 --> 00:40:36

This whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will not be accepted on them.

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


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

after the Prophet SAW Selim came,

00:40:44 --> 00:40:48

you must follow the prophets of Salah and believe in Him. Not only that,

00:40:51 --> 00:41:09

if Musa alayhis salam himself, the Prophet, not his followers, the Prophet himself was here. And there is Ali Salam was here, they would have no choice but to follow the prophets of Allah, Allah, Allah and the Prophet. Allah mentioned this in an authentic hadith.

00:41:10 --> 00:41:14

In the other authentic hadith, he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:41:16 --> 00:41:22

that whoever he said, by the one in whose hand by soul rests,

00:41:23 --> 00:41:27

no one hears of me of this ummah, that he meant by this whole

00:41:30 --> 00:41:33

the whole world, okay, not the Muslims,

00:41:35 --> 00:41:42

no Jew or Christian hears of me, and does not believe in what I have been sent with,

00:41:43 --> 00:41:47

except that they will be of the people of that fire. Very clear.

00:41:52 --> 00:42:06

Of course, there may be other issues to talk about, which is, did that person die upon disbelief? Maybe they accepted Islam at the end of their lives?

00:42:08 --> 00:42:14

Did they understand Islam completely? These are some other issues that we we can discuss.

00:42:15 --> 00:42:38

But the general rule, the fundamental rule is this, what the Quran mentions, and what the Prophet SAW Allah mentioned here, this is a necessity and a prerequisite to believe in Allah subhanaw taala. And the last day and that is believed in the prophets of Allah who said, don't

00:42:39 --> 00:42:40


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

the Christians

00:42:44 --> 00:42:47

as the priests of the people of knowledge,

00:42:49 --> 00:42:52

not who dislike Islam but who like Islam

00:42:53 --> 00:42:57

and who are trying actually to build bridges

00:42:58 --> 00:42:59

with the Muslims.

00:43:00 --> 00:43:02

What do you think of Mohamed Salah liners

00:43:04 --> 00:43:06

do they believe in him as a prophet?

00:43:09 --> 00:43:13

They might say at best, he was a great man.

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

He was a reformer

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

and other substance

00:43:21 --> 00:43:36

yet Subhan Allah as Muslims, we believe in every single one of those prophets and we love them and we revere them and we defend them and we will not accept anyone

00:43:38 --> 00:43:45

insulting them in the slightest way. Just like we think of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu.

00:43:49 --> 00:43:51

This is the meaning of the style along

00:43:53 --> 00:43:53

with the vena

00:43:55 --> 00:43:57

masala Savall Savaii.

00:43:58 --> 00:43:59

With another binder.

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

I mean aside

00:44:03 --> 00:44:04

from making

00:44:05 --> 00:44:36

those who believe in Allah and the Last Day of the righteous good deeds, they will have the reward with Allah Xhosa and no fear will be upon them, and they will not be or experience sadness, just like an idea that we discussed and studied recently also inserted Bacara and indeed, they will be no they will not experience sadness or fear in healer, they will not experience sadness or fear in the dunya.

00:44:38 --> 00:44:43

And despite the fact that in the end we are all human beings. But

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

when a person submits to the last panel to Allah,

00:44:50 --> 00:44:59

and understand that Allah azza wa jal is in charge of their affairs, and puts their faith and trust in Allah azza wa jal necessary

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

relief, they will experience less sadness and less worry in this dunya than others who may be living their lives.

00:45:13 --> 00:45:19

In worries and sadness, there are people brothers and sisters who live on pills

00:45:21 --> 00:45:26

and things may not be getting any easier. And the problems

00:45:27 --> 00:45:28

keep on

00:45:31 --> 00:45:43

coming at them from left and right, financial problems, personal problems, family problems, problems in their spirituality, a vacuum that they feel

00:45:44 --> 00:45:53

because they are away from Allah subhanaw taala. And because there is something there called the whole their spirit, which is screaming to be heard.

00:45:55 --> 00:46:03

But they cannot find the Allah subhanaw taala. So you see them doing all kinds of bizarre things.

00:46:05 --> 00:46:12

Because they're trying to fill a gap they either don't know exists, or they're not quite sure how to fill it.

00:46:14 --> 00:46:17

It's called belief

00:46:18 --> 00:46:22

there is a gap, because you were created

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

to believe in Allah subhanaw taala so when you do not, you do not believe in the last day you will experience all the kinds of maladies and difficulties that you do. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep our hearts for the faith and to increase us in the man in knowledge and happiness and contentment.

00:46:48 --> 00:46:51

And we ask Allah subhanaw taala

00:46:52 --> 00:47:02

that our last days are our best and that we go to him the best possible we are at our best possible

00:47:03 --> 00:47:08

level of belief in sha Allah Baraka people alone to either

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

or some of the lowest

00:47:22 --> 00:47:23

level here which are

00:47:25 --> 00:47:25


00:47:32 --> 00:47:33

are so many places

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


00:47:39 --> 00:47:41

what is the one we'll be left with

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


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

The Hadith also

00:47:48 --> 00:47:50

said love and carry will be below in your

00:47:51 --> 00:47:54

local life our culture we live in love. Yes, exactly.

00:48:09 --> 00:48:13


00:48:21 --> 00:48:28

Yes, Monica Luffy. This was a point I wanted to make. But I said unfortunately, we don't have the title. Indeed.

00:48:29 --> 00:48:33

This is actually the summary below

00:48:35 --> 00:49:03

as opposed to the details where he mentions and melodica goods are crucial, right? Technically, it is not even mentioned except in the Hadith. When he mentioned canon EMA so many places in the Quran he wishes to remember now when it will happen in the Hadith mechanic, maybe lavalier will mention that specifically because indeed that summarizes everything else. Furthermore,

00:49:04 --> 00:49:18

but it's interesting in this area, because the confusion happened about what about if those Jews do not believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam right. And this is why

00:49:21 --> 00:49:26

they've been taneous. And the reason he wasn't mentioned is because it is a reference to

00:49:28 --> 00:49:42

those categories before the time of abundance and therefore belief in the prophet is not mentioned in that particular ayah but in many places. When your will ask, why Allah will human advocate, not Allah Rasool

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

or Allah and the books Subhana Allah when you think about it,

00:49:51 --> 00:49:53

maybe if it Allah of course is number one.

00:49:54 --> 00:49:55

But then you think

00:49:58 --> 00:50:00

the angel

00:50:00 --> 00:50:12

odds are with you here in the dunya. And they are interacting with you even though you don't see it, and they are writing your deeds and maybe they are protecting you and other things and they are making go out for you.

00:50:13 --> 00:50:21

You are selling the books, you're selling the messengers, and of course about a something you are experiencing every single day.

00:50:23 --> 00:50:27

The fate and destiny, but in the Yellowman him

00:50:28 --> 00:50:29

is later.

00:50:30 --> 00:50:32

So he mentions Allah,

00:50:35 --> 00:50:35


00:50:38 --> 00:50:39

and ultimately

00:50:42 --> 00:50:45

your belief in Allah subhanaw taala

00:50:46 --> 00:50:49

necessitates your belief in

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

the books that he sent the messages, angels. And of course, the issue of

00:51:01 --> 00:51:02

a young woman.

00:51:04 --> 00:51:06

Your belief in the last day

00:51:07 --> 00:51:09

is ultimately

00:51:11 --> 00:51:18

after Allah subhanaw taala your belief that you will one day be held accountable is what keeps you in check.

00:51:20 --> 00:51:33

And doing what you need to do in crisis with these because there's something called Paradise and hellfire. There's something called eternal salvation or eternal damnation.

00:51:34 --> 00:51:40

It's not enough to just say I believe in Allah, I love Allah. I'm gonna worship Allah because I love Allah.

00:51:42 --> 00:51:50

There's a day where everything will be accounted for. And therefore believing in Allah believing classic

00:51:55 --> 00:51:57

example for example

00:52:05 --> 00:52:19

one of those examples, right? And the dashi right, the other city in King, that the prophets Allah wa sallam told these people to migrate to, because he was so just that

00:52:20 --> 00:52:46

he told them there you will be able to worship Allah subhanaw taala. And he is just king. Right? The scholars claim that Nigeria she believed in the prophets, Allah said that because when they told him about the prophet, and they recited the Quran, he said, This is exactly what has been revealed to inside the Salah. So they consider an Joshi to be a Muslim.
