Good afternoon was not selected to swim at a certain point in Bermuda. We've been there in the past and I did not do that early or Sofitel Atelier at one time we are certainly within some kind of filter either tonight

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

or shortly suddenly us we are very often present as well probably.

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

My best alarm is in prayers and blessings.

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

Family records contenders and all those

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


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

were made to you all no knowledge how to accept that which you have taught us Indeed you are the ongoing they are life. My dear brothers and sisters said Mr. Kumar, I'm going to lie on a girdle

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

then we continue with the seal of security law. And Allah subhanaw taala still telling us about the transgressions of many slides. We spoke about

00:00:59 --> 00:01:04

what happened last time and the versus continuing today.

00:01:06 --> 00:01:07

The last panel

00:01:08 --> 00:01:09

says number

00:01:12 --> 00:01:18

one, to Muller the mean visibility for

00:01:20 --> 00:01:23

who they are that and all I see.

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

Day in and day

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


00:01:33 --> 00:01:35

deadly in

00:01:36 --> 00:01:39

these verses of us pinata Allah tells us

00:01:40 --> 00:01:44

about the issue of the Sabbath acept

00:01:46 --> 00:01:47

known as the Sabbath.

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

The Jews also call that Shabbat.

00:01:53 --> 00:01:57

What is the story of a separate or the Sabbath? What happened?

00:01:59 --> 00:02:00


00:02:01 --> 00:02:05

why? Accept why, Saturday?

00:02:07 --> 00:02:08

As we all know,

00:02:10 --> 00:02:13

the holy day for us as Muslims is Friday.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:16

This is a blessed day

00:02:18 --> 00:02:21

as the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam told us

00:02:22 --> 00:02:23


00:02:24 --> 00:02:28

this is a day that we celebrate almost as a weekly event.

00:02:30 --> 00:02:39

But this is not only for us. This is something that all of the prophets peace be upon them all talk to their followers.

00:02:40 --> 00:02:43

The greatness of the date of Friday,

00:02:44 --> 00:02:46

the holiness of the day of Friday,

00:02:47 --> 00:02:51

including Musar the setup included Raisa

00:02:54 --> 00:02:58

so what happened? As for the Jews,

00:02:59 --> 00:03:02

they didn't really except Friday.

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

So they told Musar, etc. If the creation happened in the six days

00:03:10 --> 00:03:18

leading up to Saturday, and Saturday is the combination so Saturday is the day that should be the best day.

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

So they rejected

00:03:25 --> 00:03:29

keeping Friday as the holy day they wanted Saturday.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:40

And as such, Allah subhanaw taala went with that. Then he said, Okay, then you keep Saturday, Saturday is the the holy day for you.

00:03:42 --> 00:03:45

Something similar happened with the Christians.

00:03:46 --> 00:03:49

And they chose Sunday.

00:03:50 --> 00:04:11

Otherwise, they are all commanded by the prophets peace be upon them to submit themselves to Allah subhanho wa taala. And as part of that, and we know that they are all Muslims, and they are all submitters the last panel of Allah, and as part of that, keep this day

00:04:12 --> 00:04:25

but they rejected it, and they wanted another day. And for that reason, the Jews have Saturday, the Christians have Sunday and the Muslims have Friday, the original day,

00:04:27 --> 00:04:32

the day that Allah subhanaw taala gave that special

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


00:04:37 --> 00:04:59

So for them now, Saturday is the day that they need to keep and observe. What does that mean? It means there are certain things that they will not do on Saturday. It is a day of worship, and rest. And beware do they do not do other things?

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

Things other business? What does that mean? In modern times, you can ask them.

00:05:07 --> 00:05:40

Some of their scholars extrapolated the issue to other things, not just not doing business. Nowadays, things are a lot more advanced. So don't use technology, don't check your email and maybe other things as well. This is part of the observance of Saturday, the holiness of Saturday, and of course, there's some to and fro between the Jews and the Christians about should the Christians also be observing

00:05:41 --> 00:05:50

and keeping the Saturday the Sabbath? Or is it not binding upon them and therefore for them, the day is Sunday?

00:05:51 --> 00:05:55

Whatever they're adding to the lien after the wind is set.

00:05:58 --> 00:06:01

What is the story of a Sept

00:06:04 --> 00:06:18

what happened is that this was, as we know, from sort of the rough, because the rest of the details are sorted out here, as mentioned, somewhat briefly. So we learned that there was a town

00:06:20 --> 00:06:22

there was a town next to

00:06:23 --> 00:06:25

the water above the water.

00:06:27 --> 00:06:31

As in the other sorrows envelope idea and the details of it, how do I enter

00:06:33 --> 00:06:36

so this is a town nearby a body of water.

00:06:37 --> 00:06:45

And, as they were supposed to now observe the Saturday and they cannot work on Saturday.

00:06:48 --> 00:06:51

Part of what they wanted to do is to fish

00:06:52 --> 00:06:55

and Allah subhanho wa Taala tested them.

00:06:56 --> 00:07:02

So they will be able to fish the rest of the days, but they cannot fish on Saturday.

00:07:04 --> 00:07:09

So Allah social tested them by sending the fish

00:07:10 --> 00:07:13

in droves on Saturday.

00:07:14 --> 00:07:27

And there will be so many that they would come up to the surface of the water is that the him it was up to him sure rods when it comes up, and it becomes apparent to everyone.

00:07:30 --> 00:07:32

This is only on Saturday,

00:07:33 --> 00:07:43

when your mother asked me to learn, and on the other days, it will not come this is a tear. This is a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala where they observe will they keep it?

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


00:07:48 --> 00:07:49

this happened for a while.

00:07:51 --> 00:07:53

And they could not bear it.

00:07:55 --> 00:08:11

So some of the variations mentioned that one of them decided, okay, if I can't fish on Saturday, they only come on Saturday. Let me just try a little trick here. So

00:08:12 --> 00:08:16

I will put some kind of a net on Friday.

00:08:18 --> 00:08:23

And then when the fish come, it gets caught on Saturday. And then on Sunday,

00:08:24 --> 00:08:27

I'll take the fish. And this is what he did.

00:08:28 --> 00:08:41

For a while, people noticed other people started doing it. And it continues. And in this way, they started catching the fish that would come on Saturday.

00:08:42 --> 00:08:47

without actually going out to fish on Saturday. It's a trick.

00:08:48 --> 00:08:54

But here the very relevant question is Who exactly are you tricking?

00:08:56 --> 00:08:57


00:08:59 --> 00:09:09

Allah subhanaw taala Are you playing games with Allah subhanho wa taala. Of course it's a test. It's a difficult test. And

00:09:11 --> 00:09:25

this is something that they wanted to do. They wanted to fish they wanted that fish. But it was only on Saturday. Allah azza wa jal was testing that to see if they were serious about keeping the Sabbath.

00:09:26 --> 00:09:28

And they finally did it completely.

00:09:30 --> 00:09:34

And as you see from what I just told you,

00:09:35 --> 00:09:40

and you'll find this horse on the narration of the ambassador of the alarm and Huma, who

00:09:42 --> 00:09:59

tells us that this indeed happened over a period of time. This is not just something that happened all of a sudden, okay, and they all did it all at once, but it happened over time. And so that's it

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

Back off, clarifies to us that they didn't not all do it.

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

Some of them did it.

00:10:09 --> 00:10:23

Others were pious enough to keep observing the Sabbath, and furthermore, to forbid their brethren from this great sin of violating the Sabbath.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:28

Notice the term that law uses today will mean

00:10:30 --> 00:10:34

that they transgressed the violated

00:10:38 --> 00:10:45

there are several things to unpackage here as you try to understand,

00:10:46 --> 00:10:47


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

if this indeed

00:10:52 --> 00:10:52


00:10:54 --> 00:11:02

and the Quran tells us that it did, absolutely, and confirms it in very interesting ways, and we'll see why.

00:11:04 --> 00:11:08

Then, why are there people who deny it?

00:11:10 --> 00:11:14

And if this is something that we have recorded,

00:11:15 --> 00:11:29

and we have been trying to see, during all of this time of the season, especially with the stories of many surrounding, we have been trying to see that parallels in the Bible.

00:11:30 --> 00:11:38

And why do we do this brothers and sisters? Well, number one, it's interesting to see

00:11:39 --> 00:11:44

how the story is narrated in another holy book.

00:11:46 --> 00:11:58

Obviously, it tells us we know for a fact even if it's not mentioned, that there is an origin for this story, albeit it might be somewhat

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

different, somewhat skewed, the details seem to have been played around with or adulterated. And we saw this in many different situations. But ultimately, we find that the story is there.

00:12:17 --> 00:12:21

Albeit the details may be a little bit different, right?

00:12:22 --> 00:12:34

This is very interesting, because it tells us that you cannot adulterate the whole book, you cannot corrupt the whole book. So slivers of truth are still there.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:41

Very interestingly, this story, which is very damning

00:12:44 --> 00:12:48

be especially because of the consequence,

00:12:50 --> 00:12:52

which is being turned into apes.

00:12:55 --> 00:12:59

This story seems to have completely disappeared.

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

quite conveniently.

00:13:03 --> 00:13:05

You don't find this flurry of

00:13:08 --> 00:13:28

other violations of Masada? Yes, we seem to see some of that. We saw some of that when we were talking about and when was similar. We mentioned some of the nourishes, they talked about how Allah subhanaw taala gave them the manner.

00:13:30 --> 00:13:57

But again, they were not to correct it on Saturday, observe the Sabbath of the Mercy of Allah azza wa jal, he was going to give them two days worth of it, because they missed the Saturday and yet there were people who violated the Sabbath and when they're connected, but immediately went rotten. The Bible mentions this, right.

00:13:58 --> 00:14:09

So naturally, some Christian commentators who want to say that the Quran has its origins in Christianity will say, Oh, the Quran is building this story on

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

that, or there seems to be parallels between this story and that, and we know that this is not the case. This is a very different issue.

00:14:20 --> 00:14:29

But the other and possibly closest parallel is in a Telugu, the passage passage in the temple,

00:14:31 --> 00:14:35

which mentions a violation of the service

00:14:36 --> 00:14:43

by people who were close to the body of water where there was a pond and where the fish would come.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:49

But it seems to be somewhere completely different.

00:14:51 --> 00:14:53

It mentioned that it wasn't buried.

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

Where is this area? Where did this happen?

00:15:01 --> 00:15:05

According to m&r, BASTONI, Allah and others

00:15:07 --> 00:15:12

in the tech scene, this was either ala or Medea

00:15:14 --> 00:15:27

in and around the area of Jordan. And if it was indeed a letter, then it would be next to the body of water, which is the Gulf of Alaska.

00:15:33 --> 00:15:39

So whether we're talking about closer to Georgia Tech movie classic, you mentioned something very similar.

00:15:42 --> 00:15:47

What invited the main difference? No hates

00:15:48 --> 00:15:57

no monkeys. Just the violation of the Santa again, quite conveniently, because this is the most damning part of the story.

00:15:58 --> 00:16:03

Conveniently, left out where are the apes

00:16:05 --> 00:16:07

and maybe the swine as well.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:14

None of the above assuming that

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

I was able to

00:16:18 --> 00:16:19


00:16:20 --> 00:16:32

And there's a series mentioned the timeline of this story. When will this happen? Exactly. And this may also be important as we will see,

00:16:34 --> 00:16:39

if we take the stories as they are inserted our graph

00:16:40 --> 00:16:42

in a fairly

00:16:43 --> 00:16:44


00:16:46 --> 00:16:51

chronological order. This seems to be something that happened later on.

00:16:53 --> 00:16:55

And that might make sense.

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

Why is that? Because one may ask.

00:17:06 --> 00:17:14

This seems to be one of the greatest punishments and consequences of their violations.

00:17:16 --> 00:17:19

We've seen so many of their transgressions.

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

If we were to compare them,

00:17:24 --> 00:17:26

this violation

00:17:29 --> 00:17:40

is the worst violation if we say this is the worst consequence again. I mean, it is relative, right? We are trying to understand now, the word of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:17:41 --> 00:17:47

When they asked to see Allah azza wa jal directly, what was their punishment?

00:17:48 --> 00:17:50

Lightning destroyed, killed.

00:17:52 --> 00:18:00

This is very serious. Some may consider this punishment being turned into apes.

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

worse punishment

00:18:05 --> 00:18:13

than being destroyed eventually, Allah subhanaw taala brought them back to life in that case, right.

00:18:14 --> 00:18:16

But in terms of the violation itself,

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

they violated the Sabbath. They gave it to their desires.

00:18:24 --> 00:18:26

They wanted to eat fish.

00:18:27 --> 00:18:54

It's not that simple. It's only that you realize it's the trickery. It's playing games with a loss panel to hire. Who are you trying to trick? The one from whom nothing is absent in the heavens of the earth? Who sees every atom in the universe? You're trying to trick him? You're playing games now? Remember, it's related to the idea we discussed last time as well.

00:18:56 --> 00:19:00

Take it seriously. It's not about playing games.

00:19:02 --> 00:19:07

Take it with determination. This is serious.

00:19:08 --> 00:19:10

They're taking a loss.

00:19:13 --> 00:19:27

You cannot even trick some human beings. Nowadays. It's difficult to trick human beings here. You're tricking Allah Azza Is this what do you think of Allah? Is this the way you respect? Worship? Allah has power that Allah

00:19:28 --> 00:19:41

Subhana Allah the irony, right? It's so many other ways. They claim to love Allah and worship Allah and respect him but then they're trying to trick you.

00:19:42 --> 00:19:44

But let's just say

00:19:45 --> 00:19:47

they gave him to their desires

00:19:48 --> 00:19:50

or about their mockery.

00:19:51 --> 00:19:56

When or last time what Hannah finally ran to build the victory

00:19:57 --> 00:19:58

with you shatter the room

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

And they entered the holy land. And he told them to do what? And during the State of frustration and say HIPAA, and seek forgiveness from your Lord. And they walked in, they went on the rear ends. And they started saying all kinds of crap. That makes absolutely no sense. This is mockery.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:33

But here, the punishment is alasa to turn them into apes

00:20:35 --> 00:20:37

and maybe pigs as well.

00:20:41 --> 00:20:48

Possibly because this happened later on, and was like the culmination

00:20:50 --> 00:20:52

for their transmissions

00:20:53 --> 00:20:54

will love to either

00:20:56 --> 00:20:59

in the narration of m&r bass, and hula,

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

he tells us that Allah azza wa jal left them, he gave them a chance.

00:21:11 --> 00:21:13

And they kept on doing it.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:29

And then their compatriots their CO religionists started forbidding them. What are you doing? Fear Allah subhanaw taala keep the Sabbath as Allah ordered.

00:21:32 --> 00:21:37

But there was a third group, as sort of our clarifies to us

00:21:38 --> 00:21:42

that was telling the group that was doing other than

00:21:45 --> 00:21:51

they were enjoying good and forbidding evil. The third group was telling this group,

00:21:53 --> 00:21:56

what are you doing? Why are you doing this? Why are you

00:21:57 --> 00:22:03

prohibiting them from doing what they're doing? Notice this third group did not violate the Sabbath.

00:22:05 --> 00:22:06

They observed it.

00:22:07 --> 00:22:16

But there's somewhere in between. They think that it's useless to enjoin good and forbid evil, they're gonna be punished anyway.

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

So we have the three groups.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:25

So this continuum from one,

00:22:26 --> 00:22:28

not did not immediately

00:22:30 --> 00:22:42

punish them in this way. But what they continued, they did not repent to Allah subhanaw taala that was merciful. So Allah azza wa jal punish them by turning them into apes.

00:22:44 --> 00:22:46

Notice the URL,

00:22:47 --> 00:22:50

and the URL of certain of you mentioned stand

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


00:22:55 --> 00:23:07

In surah, delay now he mentions apes, and pigs, but not specifically related to the violation of the Sabbath.

00:23:10 --> 00:23:11

When he mentions

00:23:12 --> 00:23:22

that the worst of people are those who are most tolerant, turned into apes, and pigs,

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

a lot happier.

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

Of course,

00:23:34 --> 00:23:36

then the very relevant questions.

00:23:38 --> 00:23:44

If Allah subhanaw taala turned them into apes, and possibly monkeys as well.

00:23:45 --> 00:23:57

Is this why we hear this term? A lot of times when talking about the Jews, of course, this is the height of anti semitism for them.

00:23:58 --> 00:24:08

Muslims talking about apes and pigs when they talk about the Jews. We're talking about an incident that occurred

00:24:09 --> 00:24:12

that you obviously decided

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

to hide

00:24:15 --> 00:24:20

everything interesting that with this specific incident,

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

that may be hard to believe.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:29

He wouldn't be turned into monkeys and pigs.

00:24:31 --> 00:24:33

Maybe be hard to swallow,

00:24:34 --> 00:24:35

as well.

00:24:36 --> 00:24:45

Okay, maybe it happened, but it's hard to swallow. Why? What did they do to deserve it? You violated discernment. That's what

00:24:47 --> 00:24:52

the Bible itself says. What's the punishment for the one providing the service? There

00:24:56 --> 00:24:59

is no easy matter. Even if we claim you just gave

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

Listen to your desires, this is a big thing for you as well.

00:25:04 --> 00:25:19

And Allah let you unless you unless you and you will not heed the warning your friends, the people amongst you warn you, you did not heed the warning and Allah that Allah Subhana Allah turned you into aids

00:25:22 --> 00:25:34

the narrations even mentioned that the Muslims have them the submitters who did not violate the Sabbath, they separated themselves from those who violated it.

00:25:36 --> 00:25:40

And then they did not know about the transformation

00:25:42 --> 00:25:57

such that when finding what they came out, they realized that their core religions are not there. And when they went to check on them, they found that they have been transformed into names.

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

Very scary.

00:26:06 --> 00:26:09

With something so hard to believe.

00:26:12 --> 00:26:14

Even in Abuja, he

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

said that they will not actually transformed

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

but he was the only one. This is a minority opinion to say that, actually, many scholars said they were transformed and others said that they were not transformed, meaning that the way in which I had explained it is in a figurative way, in a metaphorical way. What do you mean? How can you become an ape? Metaphorically? Well, maybe you think like an ape?

00:26:46 --> 00:27:05

Maybe you do not. Maybe you act like an ape by your mouth responding and hitting the commands of Allah subhanaw taala you're acting like a monkey. So in our head, understood it metaphorically. What the majority of the scholars have to see you had

00:27:08 --> 00:27:29

the Sahaba Natalia in who mentioned the taxi mentioned a complete physical transformation. And it seems to have added that this is the correct what was something difficult to believe, difficult to swallow? Look at the weight loss, Ponta Hannah, preface this area.

00:27:32 --> 00:27:41

A lot of times, what is he says what do you remember when this is different? This is why the

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


00:27:46 --> 00:28:06

no doubt, and you will know it. And you are liars. If you don't. Allah says it is telling that he is running at the time of the prophets of Allah is Allah. Beware of being like your ancestors, you will know soon well, why are limited and you have known

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


00:28:08 --> 00:28:09


00:28:11 --> 00:28:12

They know it.

00:28:13 --> 00:28:16

They know what full well, they hit it.

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


00:28:22 --> 00:28:23

Notice, well,

00:28:24 --> 00:28:34

all this is all certainty and confirmation. And indeed you know, and some scholars said that this is actually a less when

00:28:36 --> 00:28:38

you have known

00:28:39 --> 00:28:51

this violation of the South that happened from your ancestors. So we said to them, the apes, despised, despised and rejected.

00:28:53 --> 00:29:00

It is said that he would see his own relative and he had been turned into an eight.

00:29:02 --> 00:29:16

So now back back to the anti semitism. When Muslims mentioned the Jews are somehow related to apes and pigs.

00:29:18 --> 00:29:25

This is something that yes, you will find sometimes Muslim saying calling

00:29:26 --> 00:29:32

the Jews the alpha sorry, the descendants

00:29:33 --> 00:29:35

of apes and pigs. Yes.

00:29:37 --> 00:29:42

And this column that the descendants have introduced is not correct.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:44

For a simple reason

00:29:46 --> 00:29:50

that the prophets of Allah said themselves in the authentic hadith

00:29:53 --> 00:29:59

that if Allah subhanaw taala punished any peoples by transfer

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

Only in this way,

00:30:03 --> 00:30:09

they would not live long, and they would definitely not have any project.

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

They wouldn't have any descendants.

00:30:15 --> 00:30:36

So when the Prophet SAW Selim was asked about this, he said to them very clearly, that no they are not the descendants because Allah subhanaw taala will not let those group of people live long, and they wouldn't have any progeny. And he said today, rather, the apes and monkeys were there from before.

00:30:37 --> 00:30:42

Another interesting part of the Hadith of the prophets of Allah it was,

00:30:43 --> 00:30:44


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

as they did

00:30:51 --> 00:30:53

suffer this punishment.

00:30:54 --> 00:31:02

This was something that the prophets of Allah Adam Sandler used as a term

00:31:03 --> 00:31:06

because of what they did to him.

00:31:07 --> 00:31:22

The way they reneged on their promises, violated their pacts with him one after another, when he laid siege to many arrival. Yes, he called them a squad and Coronavirus,

00:31:23 --> 00:31:28

breathless off the he picks.

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

Similarly, say that

00:31:34 --> 00:31:39

when they entered upon the prophets of Allah Himself, and they said, Sam, I

00:31:40 --> 00:31:41


00:31:42 --> 00:31:55

sounds like survival, but they were actually saying a cell, a stab, begin vet poison. The poison here is death.

00:31:56 --> 00:32:01

So they kill them. And instead of grinning, if they were saying death be to you.

00:32:03 --> 00:32:06

So in one direction, that was a slap on

00:32:07 --> 00:32:15

the wrist 11 He said, who are identical. And according to you, they didn't say why they would sound moronic, necessarily.

00:32:16 --> 00:32:19

If they mentioned something good, right back at you.

00:32:21 --> 00:32:22

When he

00:32:23 --> 00:32:31

heard this, she could not help it. So she said to them a salary or hourly income is why.

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

Why not?

00:32:36 --> 00:32:38

This is a new setup.

00:32:40 --> 00:32:41

So I didn't want

00:32:42 --> 00:32:45

to sell on a book f1 f1.

00:32:46 --> 00:32:47


00:32:51 --> 00:32:52

this be upon you?

00:32:54 --> 00:33:01

Brothers of apes and pigs and his curse and his anger?

00:33:02 --> 00:33:05

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told it, shall we?

00:33:08 --> 00:33:24

Relax, no need for all of this? She said O Messenger of Allah. Did you hear what they said? Said Yes, they did. And you heard how I replied, why they go, are a sovereign debt, we have money and debt we have value as well.

00:33:27 --> 00:33:29

So this term is used.

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


00:33:34 --> 00:33:45

those people who like to highlight these things conveniently forget as they forget what they did to deserve this punishment then to hide

00:33:46 --> 00:34:11

this story that happened. They conveniently forget the terrorism. They have meted out to your Muslim brothers and sisters, the violations, the heinous crimes, the killing everything that they continually do on a daily basis. They conveniently forget all of this. They just

00:34:13 --> 00:34:39

know how to pick out things like this and then call it anti semitism. This is something that happened and that you deserve as a punishment and it happened to you because of your violations against a loss other than your violations of the covenant, which you saw probably mentioned the covenant between you and God.

00:34:41 --> 00:34:45

Purple Bella Kuno, clara de Tenkasi II

00:34:46 --> 00:34:47


00:34:48 --> 00:34:51

Lima data when the hunt for her

00:34:54 --> 00:34:57

this is a punishment that Allah subhanaw taala gave them

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

and this is some

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

think that was part of Hala is reminding everyone with

00:35:06 --> 00:35:16

I will mention that a little bit more. What we need to know my brothers and sisters, and one of the important lessons that we need to take from this as well

00:35:18 --> 00:35:22

is the danger of playing games with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:35:23 --> 00:35:25

Be aware of playing games with

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


00:35:30 --> 00:35:39

Sometimes it works with human beings. Don't try it with Allah. This is a very serious, and this is part of the mockery of the team.

00:35:41 --> 00:35:45

This is what we learned from the issue of the violation of the Sabbath.

00:35:47 --> 00:35:58

They were, they were thinking that they can get what they want. And at the same time, we somehow observant of the commander lost power.

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

Can this translate to

00:36:03 --> 00:36:13

modern trickery, of course, but I don't want anyone to understand from this, that we are talking about specific,

00:36:15 --> 00:36:27

maybe fields of Islamic studies, where there is trickery, or kill, where people are playing games, a lot of times people think,

00:36:28 --> 00:36:39

and they give this example, especially when it comes to Islamic finance, and Islamic financial transactions. So there are people

00:36:41 --> 00:36:44

I don't know if there are a lot of people, we'd have to do

00:36:45 --> 00:37:02

a census or a study, to see if there are a lot to know about. That Allah that there seem to be some people that feel that everything that has to do with Islamic finance, is just games, games,

00:37:03 --> 00:37:08

and just repackaging Riba in a different way.

00:37:09 --> 00:37:10

And this is not correct.

00:37:12 --> 00:37:23

Either issues, there may be issues, but to say that it's all just again. And then in the end, it is pure that they don't this is not correct. And this is not always.

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

In fact,

00:37:28 --> 00:37:48

if there is a field, where Muslims have really made inroads and achieved things, in terms of making Islamic principles and precepts, relevant and implementable it is in the field of Islamic finance.

00:37:49 --> 00:37:56

There may be issues and difficulties because the whole financial system worldwide

00:37:57 --> 00:37:58

is based on

00:37:59 --> 00:38:03

this is absolutely correct. We know that for a fact. Right?

00:38:04 --> 00:38:18

So it'll be a lot of efforts by the scouts to try to purify, right, the product, the transactions of any type of labor. But this is not a form of trickery.

00:38:20 --> 00:38:35

This is not playing games with Allah azza wa jal. But there are other times yes, there are, of course, plenty of tricks Muslims are trying to play God forbid. So maybe when it is right about time for this I can

00:38:37 --> 00:38:48

maybe I'll take this big sum of money that I don't want to give the camera and I'll just give it as a gift to someone. Everyone's the type of thing was

00:38:49 --> 00:38:57

somehow getting back in playing games with the organization. Are you entertaining the Jews?

00:38:58 --> 00:38:59

God forbid.

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

So people know that they're playing games with Allah subhanaw taala that they're trying to trick Allah, fear Allah.

00:39:09 --> 00:39:24

Allah do not be like the Jews in this at the Prophet saw a lot better also look told us the authentic hadith. He said, do not violate and commit violations like the Jews did.

00:39:26 --> 00:39:28

And then you will be

00:39:30 --> 00:39:41

trying to accomplish certain things with the least of trickery. So this is something that is forbidden and something that we need to be careful off.

00:39:43 --> 00:39:45

Allah so Jen said that there had

00:39:47 --> 00:39:50

been a day where the hunter or a lot

00:39:51 --> 00:39:56

so we made this a punishment that did terrain punishment.

00:39:58 --> 00:39:59

You may have been there they had

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

Given the

00:40:03 --> 00:40:06

limit ad has always understood this to me

00:40:07 --> 00:40:14

that this is a deterrent punishment from those who are around them around that

00:40:16 --> 00:40:17


00:40:18 --> 00:40:21

this may be a punishment that is a reminder to them.

00:40:23 --> 00:40:34

And, indeed, it may be for everyone that learned of this violation, and this consequence of their time.

00:40:38 --> 00:40:46

So for everyone that witnessed, and everyone that heard about this arounder. Furthermore,

00:40:48 --> 00:40:52

when I heard this I have, and for every one after that

00:40:53 --> 00:41:02

this is a punishment, that should act as a reminder and a deterrent from committing the same violations

00:41:05 --> 00:41:11

until the end of time, and the Quran will be recited until the end of time, and they will read what are called the added to malaria,

00:41:12 --> 00:41:13

disability for all

00:41:15 --> 00:41:21

RCE it will continue until the day of judgment that has been determined

00:41:23 --> 00:41:42

will not have or tend to be touchy. And let it be a reminder for those who fear of loss of power. So it's a deterrent. And it's a reminder for those who feel a loss aversion and in this way, my brothers and sisters in this way,

00:41:43 --> 00:41:49

let us understand all the punishments of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:41:50 --> 00:41:56

That this is indeed how the Sahaba didn't have very understood such punishments.

00:41:57 --> 00:42:03

They understood it as a punishment for those who committed the violation.

00:42:06 --> 00:42:17

But it is a reminder for those who are called fearing, and very recently, and until now, we are witnessing the

00:42:18 --> 00:42:24

disastrous effects of the earthquake that happened in the area of Turkey and Syria.

00:42:25 --> 00:42:27

And many people ask,

00:42:28 --> 00:42:35

deserve it is a punishment for Allah subhanaw taala word there are plenty of other people of course.

00:42:37 --> 00:42:52

Absolutely. But in this way, we understand it to be a punishment. Absolutely. A punishment for the wrongdoers for those who have no fear of a lost planet Allah and live their lives as if Allah does not exist.

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

And it is a reminder for the God fearing

00:42:58 --> 00:43:25

these act these punishments acts as reminders, these natural disasters have absolutely natural reasons and means, scientific means that we understand very well. But we also must understand that there are also religious region reasons. So it is a punishment for the wrong tours. It is a reminder,

00:43:27 --> 00:43:31

it is a reminder for the right theory, and ultimately in sha Allah.

00:43:33 --> 00:43:34

It is a Shahada.

00:43:36 --> 00:43:41

It is a shahada in sha Allah, it is a form of monitor.

00:43:42 --> 00:43:53

For those who die, who are good doers who know Allah subhanaw taala. It is a form of martyrdom in sha Allah, and the raising of their level

00:43:54 --> 00:43:56

and an increase in the rewards.

00:43:58 --> 00:44:22

The prophets of Allah mentioned the authentic hadith, Al Haddad, the one who dies under the rubble, under some kind of a forming wall, in this case, falling buildings, people under the rubble for Subhan Allah especially in these cases, we saw them under the rubble for some two weeks.

00:44:23 --> 00:44:34

And many of them died. We ask Allah subhanaw taala that they be granted this great level of Shahada. This is what these disasters are.

00:44:35 --> 00:44:43

So yes, there are punishment, but they're a reminder at the same time, and they will raise the level of those who fear of loss

00:44:45 --> 00:44:47

or they will allow or something along those

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


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

Is anything

00:45:13 --> 00:45:18

kind of a controversial issue but that seems everyone is

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


00:45:30 --> 00:45:49

equal to Allah forgive us and accept from us increases in knowledge and implementation. Their last panel Tyler help us always fulfill His commands avoiding prohibitions. So the last part of data to help us to witness a child

00:45:50 --> 00:45:53

which is not too far, but equal

00:45:55 --> 00:45:55


00:45:58 --> 00:45:59

to leave
