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

My dear brothers and sisters As salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

00:01:07 --> 00:01:19

and welcome again, to this class on Tafseer of Surah Al Baqarah. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to increase our knowledge

00:01:20 --> 00:01:27

of the Quran, our faith and our implementation of the injunctions found therein.

00:01:31 --> 00:01:34

We have reached the following idea.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:43

And this is an idea that goes back to the stories of Bani Israel.

00:01:44 --> 00:02:23

Or another way of saying it, as we mentioned before, is that the whole context is the stories of Benny Suraj. And then the area that we talked about last time, was like an introductory verse that came in the middle that is still talking about that and we showed how it is connected to the censure of Bani Israel. How Allah reprimanded Benny Israel in and why then he mentioned in Alladhina, Amanu Alladhina, one nassarawa Sabe Okay. And now the story is continue.

00:02:24 --> 00:02:37

So this is the way to understand the context of the verses and the interconnectedness between these verses. In the verse we will speak about today Allah subhanaw taala says,

00:02:38 --> 00:02:41

bow dilemna Shabbat regime Smilla rahmanir rahim.

00:02:43 --> 00:02:49

00:03:32 --> 00:03:40

In this verse, Allah subhanaw taala tells us about an incredible incident.

00:03:44 --> 00:03:48

Allah subhanaw taala says, What is 100 etha come

00:03:49 --> 00:04:37

and recall when we took from you the covenant. And notice here as well, the verses are speaking to Benny Israel at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But as if they are indeed, their forefathers and their ancestors. And we mentioned the reason that is, is because they were essentially on the same path, and in agreement and support of what their ancestors had done. Otherwise, if they felt that this was something unacceptable, they would have mentioned it, but because they were essentially on the same way, Allah subhanaw taala is speaking to the descendants

00:04:39 --> 00:04:43

as if they were indeed there with their ancestors.

00:04:44 --> 00:04:50

What is a husband me Theca come and remember when we took the covenant from you?

00:04:51 --> 00:04:59

So Allah azza wa jal took the covenant from them. We spoke about the covenant in the past and some of the different opinions of the scholars of Tufts

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

hear about it. And it does seem that this covenant is a general covenant, to believe in the Oneness of Allah azza wa jal to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, to follow the Prophet that was sent to them.

00:05:18 --> 00:05:59

And of course any other prophet if another prophet was then sent to them, and to obey Allah subhanaw taala and avoid what incurs His wrath. This is the fact that the covenant, so there is a covenant with Benny Israel, and Allah azza wa jal required them to be true to that covenant. But unfortunately, they were not. Even though you hear nowadays, over and over that Allah subhanaw taala has this covenant with the chosen people with many Surah eel, were you?

00:06:01 --> 00:06:20

Did you fulfill that covenant? Were you true to that covenant with Allah subhanaw taala you can just keep mentioning all the covenant the covenant God made a covenant with us. Yes, he made a covenant Did you follow Did you fulfill? If you did not, you don't have a right to mention that covenant.

00:06:21 --> 00:06:41

This is why all these stories are being mentioned. Yes, Allah azza wa jal said that you were chosen then when you obeyed. But when you did otherwise, then it doesn't apply anymore. And this is not just many Israel, this is any people and any OMA to be the same with the Muslims.

00:06:43 --> 00:06:56

If the Muslims completely disregarded Allah subhanaw taala or disobeyed or reneged on their promise or covenant with their Lord what is a hardened me thakoon?

00:06:59 --> 00:07:02

are a foreigner for whom a tour

00:07:05 --> 00:07:09

and we raised over you pour

00:07:11 --> 00:07:12

what is a tall

00:07:14 --> 00:07:17

mountain? Which mountain

00:07:18 --> 00:07:25

Sinai Okay, so one possible or any mountain? Or is it Sinai? Why Sinai?

00:07:29 --> 00:07:45

Okay, okay, to the scene. So it is Mount Sinai that was raised above them. So it's a good possibility. That is one of the opinions of the facility, but raised the mountain above them. How?

00:07:47 --> 00:07:48


00:07:49 --> 00:07:52

What what are the implications of this?

00:07:54 --> 00:07:54


00:07:56 --> 00:08:05

maybe some would have found that difficult to understand or fathom, raise the mountain above them. Maybe it's figurative.

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

Maybe it's figurative language.

00:08:12 --> 00:08:15

Maybe some scholars would take the other idea.

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

And the other ions are off Allah subhanaw taala says, What if nattokinase Geobella FOCA home? So they said Nutana

00:08:26 --> 00:08:28

means to shake

00:08:31 --> 00:08:45

a violent shaking. So maybe it wasn't exactly raising. Maybe it was a shaking that made them feel that the mountain was gonna fall on them or something like that.

00:08:46 --> 00:08:54

Maybe some would try to interpret it this way. But to be honest, when you see

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


00:08:58 --> 00:08:59

expression in the phrase

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

what alpha

00:09:04 --> 00:09:33

fo come October. He mentioned how come first he didn't say and we lifted the mountain or we raised it. We raised it over you fo comb and you mentioned fo ha calm before the tour. We raised over you the tour almost as if it's a confirmation. This is not figurative. This is real. The mountain was physically over their heads.

huduma Athena komikko.

00:09:46 --> 00:09:47


00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

when they spoke about this idea, they try to understand if Allah azza wa jal indeed raised the mountain above them. What is the goal behind the

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

it well, it came immediately after mentioning the mythique, the covenant. So it is quite clear that this was in order to get them to fulfill the covenant Allah took the covenant, you refuse to fulfill Allah subhanaw taala raised the mountain over their heads,

00:10:22 --> 00:10:25

someone might say, Is this

00:10:26 --> 00:10:29

a form of obligation,

00:10:31 --> 00:10:32

a form of

00:10:34 --> 00:10:36

forced obedience.

00:10:38 --> 00:10:47

If that is the way it is going to be interpreted, it may have been affected by something that is mentioned possibly

00:10:49 --> 00:10:50

in the Bible,

00:10:51 --> 00:10:56

or the interpretation of the IEA, as we will see.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:15

Because the way we understand the ayah in the Quran, is that Allah subhanaw taala was scaring them with this. They needed something to shake their hearts. So Allah raised this mountain over them.

00:11:16 --> 00:11:19

That was the only way to get them to obey.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:35

This is the way we understand it, not a form of forcing or compelling them to obey such that they didn't have any other choice, but who was scaring them into it, scaring them into obedience.

00:11:37 --> 00:11:39

One of the possible

00:11:41 --> 00:12:30

ways to understand this is according to the narration of urban Zaid in a Tafseer, which Alabama Tabari mentions. And he connects all of these different instances from the beginning. If we talk about a little bit of chronology, when did this raising of the mountain happen over their heads? So he says when Musa alayhis salam went to receive the Torah, from Allah subhanho wa taala. He came back he found them doing what? worshipping the calf. So he ordered them to kill themselves, according to the narration of women's aid, that this is what they did. And then he said to them, take the book, the Torah,

00:12:31 --> 00:12:40

take the Torah and fulfill what is in it. They said, how do we know it is really from Allah?

00:12:43 --> 00:12:47

He spoke to you it came to you, let him speak to us as well.

00:12:50 --> 00:12:53

Musa alayhis, Salam struggled,

00:12:55 --> 00:12:57

let him speak to us as well.

00:13:00 --> 00:13:20

We will not believe until we see him. And he says to us, this is my book. And then he recited the iron law, not me and Aloka Turner Allah Jarrah, the verses that we spoke about. So Allah subhanaw taala was angry, and he destroyed them,

00:13:21 --> 00:13:40

as we know, and then Allah azza wa jal forgave them and resurrected them, and he recited the iron tomb of Athens, in the multicam. lagoon, the school, so Allah subhanaw taala, then resurrected them. Then Musa alayhis salam said to them, who will kita

00:13:41 --> 00:13:43

take the book, who knew?

00:13:46 --> 00:13:47

And they said, No.

00:13:50 --> 00:13:54

He said to them, What has gotten into you? What's wrong with you?

00:13:55 --> 00:13:57

Are you okay? In the head?

00:13:59 --> 00:14:01

Neither Osama Comey says to them,

00:14:03 --> 00:14:10

they said, We died and then we were resurrected. That's what happened from my work.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:19

So then, Allah subhanaw taala raised the mountain over their heads

00:14:21 --> 00:14:56

to scare them into obedience. And when they saw that the mountain was going to fall on them, this is when they didn't have any other choice. And they agreed. And he says, that and he recited the the area that we are speaking about. And he says, if they had done it originally, if they had fulfilled it originally, they would have done it without this mythique without this covenant, in other words, without a covenant between Allah subhanaw taala and them

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

whereby they had to fulfill some

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

Think had they obeyed in the first place. So this is a narration that kind of connects these different things and mentions what happened here with the raising of the mountain over their heads.

00:15:14 --> 00:15:34

Another narration Allah Allah about its authenticity, but it's interesting to mention and it is mentioned by a su D, that remember poverty mentioned as well, where he says that the mountain was raised above their head, because they refuse to prostrate.

00:15:37 --> 00:15:41

So Allah subhanaw taala raised the mountain over their heads.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:49

And it's only when they felt that the mountain was indeed going to fall on them.

00:15:51 --> 00:16:04

They went into sujood and they did sujood on one side of their faces, because with the other eye, they were looking at the mountain, which is about to fall upon them.

00:16:06 --> 00:16:08

And then it was said, that

00:16:10 --> 00:16:18

there is no such there is more blessed than such a such were in Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:16:19 --> 00:16:26

forgave them and did not punish them by sending the mountain on their heads.

00:16:29 --> 00:16:38

Subhan Allah when you think about it, it is really staggering. Seeing a mountain raised over your head.

00:16:39 --> 00:16:41

What mountain Yes.

00:16:42 --> 00:16:49

Some said could be any mountain. Ibn Abbas Radi Allahu Anhu Ummah

00:16:51 --> 00:16:59

affirms that por is a specific mountain, wherein there will be trees,

00:17:01 --> 00:17:08

trees and vegetation and so on. Things grow on it. So it's not just a rocky mountain.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:27

And yes, many scholars said that this is Jebel truth, that this is not any tour not any mountain. But Mount Sinai, upon which Musa alayhis salam was spoken to directly by Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:32

The Bible

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

when it mentions that the Israelites were with Musa alayhis, Salah when he was receiving the Torah, it mentioned that they were at the foot of the mountain,

00:17:51 --> 00:18:00

at the foot of the mountain, meaning at the bottom, and Musa alayhis salaam, ascended the mountain to receive the Torah from Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:18:03 --> 00:18:04


00:18:06 --> 00:18:08

the interpretation

00:18:09 --> 00:18:11

of Jewish rabbis,

00:18:13 --> 00:18:14

the Midrash,

00:18:17 --> 00:18:22

interprets this being at the foot of the mountain literally,

00:18:24 --> 00:18:29

and mentions that indeed, he the Holy One,

00:18:30 --> 00:18:34

raised the mountain over their heads.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:39

In that interpretation, it mentions like a barrel.

00:18:41 --> 00:19:06

Notice now this is not in the Bible. The Bible, in the book of Exodus just mentioned that they were at the foot of the mountain, the Midrash interprets it now this way, literally, that they were under the mountain not at the foot of the mountain, but that they were under the mountain, and that the Holy One, God Almighty raised the mountain over their heads, like a barrel.

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

Another narration mentions like a cask like a huge container over their heads, and that God gave them an ultimatum.

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

So notice, now this is a Jewish interpretation.

00:19:27 --> 00:19:29

Subhanallah if there was

00:19:30 --> 00:19:31

some changing

00:19:33 --> 00:19:45

in the Bible itself, the Jewish interpretation mentioned this. Not only that, that Allah gave them an ultimatum. Either you will follow the Torah

00:19:46 --> 00:19:52

or you will be buried under this mountain with a threat, something we don't see in the Quran.

00:19:54 --> 00:19:59

Notice the difference in the Quran, who do not attain a Kumiko

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

La La Quinta tekun No, in the Jewish interpretation, Allah gave them this ultimatum, either you follow, or you will be buried under this mountain. And then their scholars will start talking about the issue of being forced or compelled to obedience and free will and they'll go into all of these things.

00:20:26 --> 00:20:27

In the Quran,

00:20:28 --> 00:20:51

we don't read it that way. We read it as a sign that Allah subhanaw taala was scaring them with not the issue of compelling or freewill or anything else, as if they had to. And of course, it mentioned that actually they agreed to fulfill but that God was scaring them with this with the raising of the mountain

00:20:52 --> 00:20:53

over their heads.

00:20:55 --> 00:20:56

The Quran tells us

00:20:58 --> 00:21:00

qualify for como to

00:21:03 --> 00:21:05

Hulu, Tina Kumiko.

00:21:07 --> 00:21:09

For what reason,

00:21:10 --> 00:21:25

Take what We have given you with determination with strength. In other words, hold fast, hold fast on to that which we have given you who Luma attina can be who will

00:21:27 --> 00:21:29

take this torah.

00:21:30 --> 00:21:43

Be serious about it. What does taking it with determination mean? It means holding on to it clinging to it, being serious about it with kuruma Fie, and remember what is in it.

00:21:44 --> 00:22:18

Let it be a reminder for you live with it. Who Luma Athena can be Kuwa This is what Allah subhanaw taala wants from Benny Surah eel Of course, this area is very important for Muslims also to keep in mind, who do matter, you know can be Kuva this is like a slogan, take that which has been given to you with determination. Take it seriously. My brothers and sisters,

00:22:19 --> 00:22:21

does this apply to us?

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

Have we taken the Quran? Because

00:22:26 --> 00:22:34

have we taken it with strength and determination? Do we hold on to it the way we are supposed to?

00:22:36 --> 00:22:40

Does the Quran represent what it should to the OMA?

00:22:41 --> 00:22:47

Or is the Quran? Something that is largely marginalized?

00:22:49 --> 00:22:57

What is the Quran now for the ummah? For many people unfortunately the Quran is nothing more than a Baraka book.

00:22:59 --> 00:23:08

A book of Baraka Alhamdulillah, kiss it, put it on my chest, and then put it back on the shelf and let it collect dust for many people.

00:23:11 --> 00:23:18

Why are you putting the Quran so No, put it high, high up on the last shelf so that no one can

00:23:19 --> 00:23:28

be no one can have access to it and let it collect dust on the top shelf? Is this the meaning of Hulu? By Athena Kumiko?

00:23:29 --> 00:24:07

Is this word it's meant for? Okay? If it's not that type of Muslim, okay, it's a book of ceremonies. We open our event with some verses from the Quran to bless our event, and then we put some rowdy music or something else very interesting. Or maybe yes, we bless this marriage with some is from the Quran. Or you hear it you either hear it in marriages, or you hear it in funerals. This is where we hear the Quran a lot of the time is this huduma Athena, conga, conga.

00:24:09 --> 00:24:14

Take what We have given you with determination and strength hold fast onto it.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:28

These people who think that respect of the Quran or taking it with determination is about where you put the most half. This is the most half

00:24:30 --> 00:24:47

you're talking about the most half we're talking about the Quran, not necessarily the book. So this person who seems to be respecting this most half the book itself may not be respecting the verses they're in. What are you doing with the verses?

00:24:49 --> 00:24:53

What are you doing with the commandments there?

00:24:55 --> 00:24:59

With the prohibitions, this is what we're talking about.

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

Are you living the Quran?

00:25:03 --> 00:25:04

Is the Quran in you?

00:25:06 --> 00:25:09

How much do you believe in it? Understand it?

00:25:10 --> 00:25:19

Work according to its principles and precepts. This is kulula attina Kuba, Kuba take it seriously, it's not a joke.

00:25:21 --> 00:25:23

People take it as if it's just,

00:25:24 --> 00:25:32

yeah, well, the Quran mentions this, but there are many different interpretations. Subhanallah you don't want the

00:25:33 --> 00:25:51

closest possible interpretation this is these are the words of Allah subhanaw taala many possible interpretations we'll just take any is that the way it is this who do not attain Kumiko? Is this, taking the Quran seriously, or taking the whole religion seriously? Allah azza wa jal tells us

00:25:52 --> 00:26:03

about those who took their religion as a matter of play in jest. It's a joke. Religion is a joke. For many people in this world.

00:26:05 --> 00:26:15

Hello, Marathi nakoma Kumar. This is a serious matter, take it seriously. Take the words of Allah subhanaw taala. Seriously,

00:26:16 --> 00:26:22

if it's not something you can do immediately. It's something you you live your life for. It's a journey.

00:26:23 --> 00:26:41

These are the words of ALLAH brothers and sisters, we do not want to be like the Jews, who do not attain or can be Kuva Cova was Kuru mafia and remember that which is in it. You know what will result from this, the Hala come to Taco this is how you achieve Taqwa.

00:26:43 --> 00:26:50

The way to achieve God consciousness and fear of him is by taking it seriously.

00:26:52 --> 00:27:02

And when you look at the way the Sahaba were, this is what they used to do. They took it very seriously, it was not a joke.

00:27:04 --> 00:27:12

And there are so many examples of this. And a simple one I usually like to give is when

00:27:13 --> 00:27:14


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

says about himself that he became a hypocrite.

00:27:20 --> 00:27:31

Just because when he goes back home, he feels in a totally different state. Then when he's with the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam.

00:27:34 --> 00:28:02

So he comes to America, and he says now fucka, humbler? hamdulillah is a hypocrite. He's talking about himself. Subhan Allah, we're back. It says, are you okay? Are you saying this? So he said, When we were the prophets, Allah, Allah, He reminds us of paradise and hellfire. And we are at such a state of consciousness. And then we go home, and we get busy and preoccupied and we play around with our wives and children and we forget much.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:20

Abu Bakr doesn't have to take it seriously about the Allahu he could say no, no, brother, this is not what is meant. This is what you will hear today. No, no brother, there's a fatwa? No, no, brother, this is not the way you should understand that actually.

00:28:22 --> 00:28:31

Becker takes it seriously. He says, yes, you're right. I feel the same way. Let's go to the prophets. Allah is Allah.

00:28:32 --> 00:29:00

How's that for taking things seriously. So they went to the province of Salem in the famous Hadith. And they told him this. And he told them that if you are the way you are with me that the angels will be with you and they will shake your hands and so on and so forth. The famous Hadith, in other words, he's telling them eventually he says to them, there's a time for this and there's a time for that. Okay, he said Saharsa.

00:29:01 --> 00:29:08

But this is taking the religion seriously. There are a lot of injunctions and commandments in the Quran.

00:29:10 --> 00:29:31

We recite it in two seconds, okay, as if we are just drinking water or milk. Maybe we recite it so quickly. You cannot even understand exactly what is being said. That when it comes to implementation, you might spend years trying to abide by this specific injunction.

00:29:33 --> 00:29:43

When Allah azza wa jal says a flat hull Minjun and then we recite the rest of the eyes Alladhina on fee Salatin Hi, Sharon, Hola, Dina home and lovely Maradona, and so on.

00:29:45 --> 00:29:46

Go through the whole is

00:29:47 --> 00:29:48

not easy.

00:29:50 --> 00:29:59

When Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, I tell you old fugly Ming conversa a new tool CORBA Do we even know what this

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

is about and who it's revealed for.

00:30:03 --> 00:30:06

And then much less implemented.

00:30:08 --> 00:30:09

Something else

00:30:10 --> 00:30:22

there are things which are not easy to implement. Whoever does anything wrong, they will be held accountable for it. This is scared the Sahaba

00:30:25 --> 00:30:36

the Al at the end of circle Bacara we'll get to it in sha Allah. The lie map is similar to a mafia are going to be the mafia and four sigma to fool this

after Allah has secured the breeze the mountain over their heads and did not actually drop it upon them.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:23

The eye of Sudan actually

00:31:25 --> 00:31:32

clearly tells us that it was raised above them it's hard to interpret it any other way.

00:31:33 --> 00:31:48

So it is something that is covering them from the top can the hula woven new unknown work? Be him? Is there anything clearer than that? And they were certain that it was going to follow their heads.

00:32:11 --> 00:32:13

So after all of that,

00:32:14 --> 00:32:16

they still turned away.

00:32:18 --> 00:32:19

What's the solution?

One punishment after another one sign after another. No matter what later embedded Eric? Fellow hula formula Alikum warahmatu. Hula to middle ha Siri.

00:32:46 --> 00:33:01

If it was not for the favor of Allah and His mercy, then you would surely be of the losers. So even after they turned away, Allah again Subhanahu wa Taala turned to them with favor at Mercy.

00:33:03 --> 00:33:16

If it was not for the favor and mercy of Allah subhanaw taala where would we be brothers and sisters? It is Allah's favorite mercy, that you and I are here talking about the book of Allah, trying to take it seriously, trying to understand it, and live with it.

00:35:44 --> 00:36:19

Or you're doing Allah a favor. Brothers and sisters, if every single human being on the planet was as pious as the most pious human being like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we were all like that. It would not add anything to Allah's power and dominion. And if they were all the worst of the worst, it would not in any way a bait from Allah has power or dominion. Allah does not need you in any way.

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

00:37:25 --> 00:37:26

for the wrongdoing,

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

their sins and disobedience. If Allah were to hold us accountable in the way that we deserve,

00:37:35 --> 00:37:41

no creature would be left on the earth. Did you ponder over this area?

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

No one wouldn't be left on the earth.
