Earlier he was a Harvard in woman, son in law with the Subhanak Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah lantana in Hollywood Hakeem
published roughly Saudi Arabia silly. The terminally Sani of Kaku Kohli all praises due to Allah Almighty. We praise Him we seek His help we seek his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our souls and our deeds. Whoever Allah guides, there is not to misguide. And whoever he leads astray, there is none to guide either witnesses there is no God worthy of worship but Allah and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his slave Servant and Messenger.
Dearest brothers and sisters,
we pray to Allah subhanaw taala that as he has brought us together here today that he brings us in the house of paradise with the Beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam his family writers companions and all those that follow them have the right guidance until the day of judgment I mean,
glory be to you Oh Allah, no knowledge have we accept that which you have taught us Indeed you are the All Knowing the all wise we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept from us and increase our faith and knowledge of the Noble Quran and to raise us in levels with this Quran that that he has sent to us and that will not be of those who put the Quran behind our backs and ignore its teachings and its guidance.
Dear brothers and sisters we continue to soar at Elgin
and did we I think we had some homework last time
can can we come closer? Can we
decrease the angle
now you can stay but at least the people on the sides come closer to the center
we had homework or not
we had some there was some question No That's what I remember. Okay
we have finished up to verse 13
so we'll continue with verse 14
I will be given a shape on the alloggi Bismillah Hermo man walking well
a lonely step warm one up Bonnie Vila as
Tina who the woman he wanted to
be a snooker?
only use the one he mean a lot
among us are Muslims,
and among us are the unjust.
And whoever has become Muslim those who have sought out the right course, but as for the unjust, they will be for Hell, firewood.
The Gin as we saw in the previous verses that we did in the last talk,
we're speaking to
the rest of their fellow gym. And they said several things. Now in the first one, it was a very let's say diplomatic
and soft approach where they said,
and among those are the righteous, and among us or others not so. And this is part of the now, that was the question, right? There was homework, we asked the question about Dawa. Where's the verse in Surah Sabha that
tells us it's okay when you're doing our, as a tactic, that you even blame yourself. And you accuse yourself possibly, of yourself being wrong.
And the other person of being right.
That was because
So maybe until next week.
So there, they were saying, almost all the righteous and others not so it was just the beginning of advising and doing our to their fellow Gen.
The next one,
they said, when we heard the Guidance, meaning the Quran, we believed in it, and whoever believes in his Lord will not feel deprivation or burden.
This is the way of the rib right, this is an incentive, believe in Allah subhanaw taala and you will not feel deprivation or any burden in any way.
Then they went all out and said, and among us are Muslims,
who have submitted to Allah subhanaw taala and among us are the unjust now.
So this is
not only that, we said that one was right, it was giving them an incentive. Then they came here.
And they spoke about being Muslims and those who are unjust, and they said, But as for the unjust, they will be for held firewood, this is now that he right? This is scaring them. This is the way of the hour, where you give an incentive and at the same time, you create a little bit of fear. Okay, and both are required. That's interesting. In addition to that, you find that in the first one, they said common human behavior, right, and whoever believes in his Lord will not be the provision or burden.
And now they're talking about Islam
and Muslim women now because this is also the the wisdom in the hour of starting with iman, and then go into Islam. Right. And this is precisely what Prophet Muhammad wa sallam advised
when he sent him to Yemen as a Daheia. Right. The first thing you call people to be
believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala right Jaha Johannes Lulla Muhammad Rasul Allah, this is the first thing you should start off with in Dawa. Okay, believe in Allah subhanaw taala. Don't associate partners with him.
And the Prophet Muhammad is his messenger. After that, you can transition. If they respond to that, as he told them, then tell them that it is your obligation towards your Lord, that you pray to him five times a day. The first thing that pillar obvious now he started with the pillars of Islam, prayer and Zakat, and whatever would follow. But this is also interesting, you find Subhanallah all these secrets in the verses of the hour and the way to do.
So one, Muslim woman Woman nah. This is also interesting that the gym didn't say what another non Muslim woman woman named Kathy rune, and this is what would be expected, that which is contrary and opposite to Islam would be good for, right this belief. Now,
most of the scholars have said that indeed, they're rough. This is a reference and costume is indeed a reference to the COFA. But how, by calling them unjust. And the first people they are unjust with is
Their own selves, exactly. The first people they were unjust when is their own cells and that's why you find in many places in the Quran, when we're referring to the Kufa he calls Allah the moon.
Those who have done wrong, who are unjust to whom to themselves first, okay. Everyone, Quran and it's beyond you and giving you different verses, many places he's talking about
Not anyone is talking about those who disbelieved who did injustice firstly to themselves and here similarly and acetone, okay, those who have deviated from the way of the truth, those who have deviated from the straight path those who have indeed done injustice to themselves by
worshipping others besides Allah subhanaw taala and therefore deserving Hellfire
this is one yes further
I'll get to it and once I finish if you still have questions, asked mashallah, I have a lot to say I'm just going one by one.
so this is itself Interesting. Okay. Contrary to Islam is this injustice. One may also say it is most interesting that they use the word corsets, okay, the unjust, contrary to Islam, to show now this is a reference to cover, definitely, it may also be a reference for Allahu Alem. Otherwise, what is the wisdom of mentioning the past, in this specific instance? Okay, as opposed to any other term, the fact that we use the term and
contrary to Islam, it's almost as if Allah subhanaw taala is telling us there is no such thing as a Muslim who does injustice to others.
It is the part and parcel of one's faith and Islam, that he does not do injustice to anyone, not themselves, not their family, not their relatives, not their friends, not to any other human being or animal or plant or for that matter, inanimate objects. The Muslim is a Muslim who is just with all
because they are supposed to be just as Allah subhanaw taala is just
this is part of the
incentive, when we realize that Allah subhanaw taala is the most just you and I ourselves to try to be just with all around us. And Muslim cannot be just just like the Prophet Muhammad Salim said, a Muslim can do many things, but he cannot be a liar. Similarly, Muslim cannot be just it's almost as if it is country. One I mean, non Muslims were mean
to contrary things, to diametrical concepts, how can you be a Muslim? And at the same time be unjust to anyone?
It's almost like it is an oxymoron. A Muslim who is a volume Subhanak era how,
how does this even come to pass? It shows you that this is what is supposed to be the rule. This is the norm. Don't
be confused by the fact that you see the opposite. You see the opposite. It just shows you how deviated from the norm we are.
A Muslim is supposed to be unjust. And usually the norm is that the disbelievers are unjust. If you see justice on the side of the disbelievers and injustice on the side of the disbelievers know very well that there is something very, very wrong in the
end, it is that meaning that even Tamia was pointing to when he said that indeed, Allah subhanaw taala may indeed bring about victory and the supreme hand to the disbelieving.
If it is just
if it is just don't be confused, and indeed Allah subhanaw taala may disgrace the believing Ummah, because it is
because there is volume. And indeed, Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said, a willing Guru matthewman piano, that injustice and oppression is many darknesses on the Day of Judgment, it's missin Subhanallah that cannot be forgiven.
Whenever you are unjust toward anyone know very well. This cannot be erased.
Everything else if it's between one of us but Allah Allah is the most forgiving. But if he will have done any injustice or wronged any human being or animal, know very well you will find it and it will haunt you. And you will see it on the Day of Judgment. If the only thing that cannot be forgiven. It has to be dealt with on the Day of Judgment in one way or another.
So beware of being unjust,
and those who are unjust, and those who are oppressing the poor, and the weak of the those who are torturing and punishing
Do us and the Imams, let them fear Allah subhanaw taala all of it all of it will come to pass on the Day of Judgment, an atom's worth
will not be hidden from us. And atoms worth will not be forgotten or forgiven, everything will be dealt with on the day of judgment. And it is the extent of the infinite justice of Allah subhanaw taala that even the animals who will not see paradise or hellfire, who will just become
they themselves Allah subhanaw taala will do justice between them, Allah who doesn't get any better than that. Even the animals that will become Thus, if one animal wronged another Animal Upon Animal hit, or killed another animal as the Hadith
mentioned, that if an animal or a sheep that has horns, was biting another one that doesn't have horns, Allah subhanaw taala will do justice to the one that didn't have horns.
This is the infinite justice of Allah. And then we think to ourselves, this poor, downtrodden man, or some of these laborers who had their money, their their salaries, they were deprived of their salaries for many months, or many of those who are wronged and oppressed all over the world. Do you think by Allah that they are forgotten what Allah He nothing will be forgotten and everything will be accountable on the Day of Judgment? These are two contrary terms Islam and injustice or oppression
feminists lemma get hung up on Russia now
the fact that we thought that this means justice, is it not in Allah?
Allah loves the almak supreme
so how do we explain this apparent contradiction?
Yeah, I know I'm gonna answer
how do we explain this
casiotone are going to be the firewood of hell.
The transmission tells us they are the unjust not the just but on the other aisles furnaces simple right? Be just in Allah
the difference is
where's the Hamza?
If you say
what when you turn it into a verb
when you say Cyprian in hola yo shipborne mocha zipline
and you want to turn it into a past tense verb. You don't say pasa.
If you say the verb cassava,
the past tense of cassava
or that is the past tense, right? If you are going to say the fat,
the fat and meaning the one who does this, he does. It becomes
a tune. Casa as a verb means to be unjust to oppress to oppress. What about the theme works a theme. If you turn it into the past tense verb. It doesn't come from
it comes from AXA with the Hamza and AXA means to be just AXA becomes more
accepted as the verb and when you are turning it into the firewall or the one who is performing that action that becomes more accessible.
That's the difference.
Exactly. Yes. Exactly. Well, it depends. Let's when you when you look at the verb just the Hamza changes it
is oppression. And
is to be just that's the difference. So in Allah, Allah You know what, in Allah your mocha simply just past your tone, meaning the unjust, the unjust or the oppressive. Is that clear? Is the another rule clear? It's a linguistic rule
from an S lemma
they say and whoever has become Muslim, okay, we know that after listening to the Quran, some of the jinn became Muslim, and others remained on their cover
From ms Lemma and whoever has become Muslim, those have sought out the right course. It's interesting. Those have sought out the word in Arabic is Hello. And hello is a beautiful word that is all inclusive of seeking out. Okay? Weighing and balancing things in one's head, analyzing, searching and seeking out a beautiful word that is all inclusive of all of that. It's almost like he's telling you that the Russian, the the guidance and Islam and everything God is something that has to be sought out. It's not going to come to you on a silver plate from an Aslam for
those who found that way, they sought it out. They searched for it, our brothers and sisters who found Islam, do you think it was easy? Do you think it just dropped on their head? No. They sought it out. They they lived many a difficult life. They may have come to the point where they were going to commit suicide where they were in despair of life. They said this can't be this can't be all it's about something is up. There is a vacuum they feel they searched. They looked they asked they read
they sought out the truth. So Allah subhanaw taala guided them to the truth, say Muslims, those who are born Muslims.
We should seek the guidance brothers and sisters, we should seek the knowledge we should seek the truth. What we don't understand go and ask about it. Don't sleep on it. Go and ask a scholar go open a book open a website, do what you can to answer the questions to answer the doubts that you have raised your Eman, seek it out. Hello Russia. They sorted out it wasn't the something that came easily those have sought out the right course and Russia the right course in everything as we have explained
No, then Allah subhanaw taala says, But as for the unjust they will be for Hellfire Would ya and it is really amazing way of showing you how useless these people are. Now in the other verses, Allah, Allah told us in general, right? That the Hellfire whose fuel
is people and stones right but that was General. Now he's showing you how useless the unjust are
the the the disbelievers in general, or be they those who are oppressive and unjust the tyrants and despots and those who are punishing the Muslims all over the world.
the fire would have held your hand, it's an amazing expression.
The fire one of Hell, they will be the only what is used for the burning of the Hellfire. It can't get any more disgraceful than this. And indeed, this is what they deserve. Those who have done injustice to themselves, those who have forgotten about Allah subhanaw taala those who could care less those who mock at Allah subhanaw taala maybe day and night or who deny his existence or who
insult Allah subhanaw taala or insult to the messengers of Allah. May Allah peace and blessings be upon them all are those who mark at the Muslims and those who worship their Lord, day and night.
Don't worry, it is up to Allah subhanaw taala is the one who judges those who are unjust, they are the fire would have held those who have oppressed the Muslims, those who have oppressed people
and they have
rendered them to such a despicable and disgusting and difficult life. Only those people know what they are living those who are under oppression. Those people who have oppressed they are the fire would have held what America says kunafa can only Johanna Harper,
this verse satisfies the ones who are oppressed. If you are not oppressed, you don't feel it. You don't feel it until you are under the brunt of that oppression. Then you feel how Allah subhanaw taala satisfies those to tell them the patient in this life. Those people their time is the afterlife. Don't worry if they have they have the upper hand now. It is in the afterlife there
The believers will laugh at the disbelievers
in Africa and the Johanna Hapa.
And Allah revealed
or rather, just to mention, that, as we said the disbelievers who have deviated from the way of truth, they are the ones who are unjust firstly with themselves, and they have committed the greatest sin, my dear brothers and sisters, by associating partners with Allah subhanaw taala. And this is the ultimate model. And this is why, as we know in swatted Look, man, when
Lachman advised his son, he said to him, what
what did he say
to Shrek Biller, do not associate partners with Allah, in a shill killable Munna have been
the associating partners with Allah, Allah shell is indeed great injustice is the worst injustice. But the problem as you know, and as you will continue to see maybe on a daily basis, is that people only look at the dunya.
To them, oppression means oppression of the dunya. Crime means crimes of the dunya killing and robbing and things like that. Nothing has to do with Allah subhanaw taala anymore. Allah subhanaw taala is out of the equation for them. And therefore their analysis, the way they think their standards
are all concerning the dunya you have to open their eyes to the fact that it's not only about the dunya there is an afterlife, and the standards with which you measure and analyze, have to take into account the afterlife have to take into account the fact of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is the worst injustice. If you go now to a disbeliever and you tell him associating partners who Allah and worshipping others besides Allah is the worst injustice will he understand? He will not understand until you explain it to him, especially now. Maybe in the past, they would have understood but now as Allah is completely out of people's minds and the equation, they will not understand until you
explain it to them. Therefore it needs explanation. It means for some Muslims, it needs an explanation, what's less the disbelievers.
And Allah revealed that they had remained straight on the way
we would have given them abundant rain.
well know let's go back a little bit.
Some scholars said
that back in verse 14, starting from and whoever has become Muslim, those have sought out the right course that from there
it is the words of ALLAH and not the words of the jinn.
So according to some scholars, the end of the speech of the jinn is an among us are Muslims and among us are the unjust period. From then on. It is the words of ALLAH Spano. This is the opinion of some scholars, okay. And whoever has become Muslim, those have sought out the right course and so on. And as for the unjust, they will be the firewood of hell easily can be explainable as they were the philosophy Montana. Definitely. From here on, it is the words of Allah subhanaw taala. And Allah revealed that if they had remained straight on the way we would have given them who is speaking Allah's petard right. So, this is, according to all scholars, this is obviously not the words of the
jinn, why suddenly the switch,
who else would bring rain other than Allah subhana wa Tada
even though it may be something that the jinn may have expressed, but the way Allah subhanaw taala is expressing it in the Quran, is in the first person speaking about himself
and not the gym.
Because who else will give provision and abundant train? Only Allah subhanaw taala. So this is the wisdom and from now on the words and the speech is Allah. And Allah revealed that if they had remained straight on the way, we would have given them abundant.
two possible meanings to this verse.
And that is Allah's saying, if they had remained straight on the way,
the way here could mean the way of goodness, the way of truth. And
if they had remained straight on the way, okay?
A full remain straight on the way
could be the djinn. And humanity could be both could be a costume, the unjust and the wrongdoers if they were to remain on the straight path, so it can refer to the jinn and humanity and it's gotten referred specifically to the unjust that are just mentioned, if they were
to remain straight on the way of truth,
we would have given them abundant reign,
abundant green abundant water abundant provision, and in this meaning, it is similar to the verses where Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Noble Quran, if you obey Allah subhanahu wa taala and you remain straight on the path, Allah azza wa jal will provide for you from where you least expect it. It's the same meaning as Allah's plant answers. And the other is that if the people of the cities were to believe and be righteous, Allah subhanaw taala will open for them the doors of blessings of the heavens and the earth. Right. It's the same meaning, being good and obedient. And Allah subhanaw taala will bless you, and bless your provision. He will bless the hill bless its provisions, He'll
bless what is coming out from the earth, as in the other famous area, where Allah subhanaw taala spoke about the Earth bringing out its provision, right in an easy way, if people are, everything is a good Earth and if there is a need or a good land, if there is piety and so on, and if it is corrupt, then there will be no blessing, there will be no Baraka, the provision will be very sparse, and so on. So in that case, it would it would only give us the same meaning that if they were remaining straight on the path on the path of righteousness, Allah would give them abundant reign
in the other possible meaning.
It would be if if they had remained straight,
straight on the path of misguidance. If they remain on the path of misguidance, then we would have given them abundant rain. And you say it seems opposite.
It makes sense when you go to the next.
So we might get them there in
now, it makes sense. So we might test them. They're in the neptina who, okay, so how would testing apply in both cases, if they were straight on the path of righteousness? We know that even higher is a fitna, right. When a blue commission we will highly fitna but when I
saw that Al Ambia.
Lawsuit Hello Donna says
when a blue commercial, they will hire you fitna and we test you with good with evil or with the
adversity, okay? And hard times, as we
also test you with good times. And for some
good times is a more difficult test than hard times and difficult times. Because many people may find it easy to be patient in hard times. But very few have the capacity to thank Allah subhanaw taala and to be good and righteous in times of prosperity. Few are the ones who remember Allah and men are the ones who forget Allah subhanaw taala and forget who is the one that Allah who is the one who gave them all of those blessings. So even good times and provision may be a fitna prosperity may be indeed a fitna then a phenom fee, so we might test them there.
Are they thankful? Or are they ungrateful as Prophet Suleiman Ali Salam said, when he saw the throne had been brought to him, by them in February of the blue.
This is of the bounty of my Lord, to see will I be thankful? Or will I be ungrateful
Right. So it will apply them. The other meaning might be, if they remained faith on the path of misguidance and deviance, we would have given them abundant train, so that we may test them in it. In this case, it would be what is called in Arabic
what is it called inherited
when the last part that Allah gives them to test them, and so that they can continue in them as guidance
so that they continue to be distracted
by the dunya.
And continue to forget that last part Allah it is called esteemed Raj. You've heard this before, right? Instead, Raj?
Where Allah subhanaw taala it's what you see for many today. Oh, you are coming as Allah because Allah will give the believers and he will provide for them, of their righteous and so on, while you're looking for why are they the richest? Why are they the most blessed? Why are they above us? Why do they have why are they living in palaces? Why are they this? And then why are they this and that? Don't you hear this? Maybe on a daily basis? How come they are just looking at us? We're the Muslims and we are poor and we are the downtrodden and oppressed. And the kuffaar are the ones who are enjoying themselves and enjoying life and this and that is the
go to Saudi Arabia and Iran.
last panel, Tara does what he pleases. He is not asked about what he does. And we are asked
sort of early on Ron, what does Allah subhanaw taala say? He says, very important verses and let not those who disbelieve verse 178, page 92. And let not those who disbelieve ever think that because we extend their time of enjoyment, it is better for them. We only extend it for them so that they may increase in sin.
And for them is a humiliating punishment. This is in the ranch.
And this may be the other meaning of the IRA that we are speaking about.
many people who are lost That's why even prosperity is a fifth now. If you find that Allah subhanaw taala has just opened up the doors of blessings upon you, of course we are happy, but be thankful and have a little bit of fear in your heart.
This is what the believers do.
Because they would be afraid this might be syndrome. They might be afraid that Allah Subhana Allah is giving them so that they can just continue to forget. That's why some of the salah they preferred adversity because they were confident they can be patient, as opposed to prosperity, where they were fearful that maybe they will get their money misguided, or forget about Allah subhanaw taala or not thank Allah subhanaw taala for his abundant blessings in Athena who, so we might test them there. And whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, He will put
he will put into arduous punishment, he will In other words, he will put them into arduous punishment Now
whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, many places or animals Pahala mentioned this concept, turning away from the remembrance of Allah subhana wa Tada, okay,
remembrance here, maybe the Quran,
maybe just remembrance the advice and the admonition of Allah Subhan Allah Tada and the signs of Allah subhanaw taala. All of this may apply whoever turns away from all of this, then Allah subhanaw taala will put them into arduous punishments. In the other eye, Allah says in the end of Surah, PA, woman,
decree Allahumma Aisha monka
whoever turns away from my remembrance, he will have a most miserable life and this is referring to the dunya and here he is saying woman on decree will be your snuck.
In and he will be given arduous punishment in the villa. And then the other area was Parnassus, what do
say fun for whoever who carries
Again, whoever is blinded
from the remembrance of Allah has power to other members of the Most Merciful Allah, Allah then Allah subhanaw taala will
make this a panda companion to Him and He will remain that way, a companion of the shayateen that will continue to misguide them and so on. Brothers and sisters know very well. You want a good life here and you want the best life in an Acura, be with Allah at all times. Remember Allah subhanahu wa taala. Don't turn away from the remembrance of Allah. Don't turn away from the admonition of Allah. Don't turn away from the Quran of Allah don't turn away from the admonition that he sends you in your life.
admonition may come in a written form, and it may come in a practical form in your life. Grandma's Potala reminds you of a certain situation,
maybe Subhanallah, you were completely heedless of death.
And then Allah subhanaw taala will send you a reminder. Or maybe this is why some of the scholars considered one of the important reminders shaped the white hairs in your hair and in your beard.
This is a reminder to you that your time is near.
Allah subhanaw taala may send you a reminder whereby you are very close and on the verge of committing a certain sin. And then Allah subhanaw taala shows you the terrible result of someone who fell into that sin. Don't think it is just something haphazard, or coincidence. Know Allah Subhana Allah sent to you as a reminder, don't turn away from the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala always remember him, whoever does not.
And whoever turns away, Allah azza wa jal will put him into Artemis punishment will either Billa and the determined Arabic is father.
Father comes from Father, which means to rise and to ascend. So how does that correlate with arduous, it's because usually going up is much easier than coming down, right? Much harder, sorry, much more difficult, you have to climb up, you have to climb up a mountain, you have to go up the stairs.
This difficulty in going vertical, because of
Is why and this is actually the meaning here the meaning of either side means arduous punishment, difficult punishment that when one cannot handle as you find difficulty in handling a sentence.
what has been mentioned about this punishment, it is punishment that cannot be tolerated. And it is arduous as going up in general is arduous, and it is related from some of the seller, that it is a very steep and vertical rock that Allah subhanaw taala will make the kuffar
tried to climb and every time they get to the top, they will be made to fall back down and they will continue to try to climb and they will be made to fall back down and are the arduous punishment that cannot be tolerated. May Allah subhanaw taala Have mercy on us. And he revealed that the messages are for Allah so do not invoke with Allah. Anyone.
concerning Sahaja, there was another thing of Imam that he said that it is a punishment in which there is no rest. Yes.
Same verses that aren't up here. Yeah, it's very common and they put it on the
hub and the different massage
and massage and the message of Allah so do not invoke with Allah, anyone. It is also reported on the authority of Imam a Tada that he said concerning this verse, that the Jews and the Christians, whenever they go into their houses of worship, they associate partners with Allah subhanaw taala because it is part and parcel of their faith. So Allah subhanaw taala commanded His Prophet,
if he goes into the masjid to invoke Allah subhanaw taala alone with sincerity and without partners and in
Did the masajid are the only houses of Allah where only Allah subhanaw taala is being worshipped everywhere else, someone else is being worshipped other than Allah subhanaw taala will learn every
And then mythology that Allah, this refers
to all of the massage and all of the massage, they belong to Allah subhanaw taala they are the houses of Allah subhanaw taala. And it may also refer
to the whole earth, because Allah subhanaw taala made the whole earth force, and masjid and this is, as we know, one of the
unique characteristics of Prophet Muhammad Al Salam. It was not the case with the rest of the Prophets, peace be upon them all, that he has made the whole,
the whole earth as a match, you can pray wherever you want before, if they wanted to pray, they had to pray in their individual and selecting houses of worship. Right. And he also made it not only a masjid, but he made the earth as
majority literally a mess, didn't.
Hoorah. Hoorah, a purification, right, one way you can do ablution you can do also a unique characteristic of this. Now,
of the massage it also is Al Masjid Al haram.
And what was the Masjid Al haram filled with at the time of Prophet Muhammad was filled with
if someone were to bring a statue of Buddha and this machine will either be law, people would lose their minds. And this is just another regular masjid and it was just one item. So can you imagine 360 Idols knocking this masjid, but in the most
masjid and the most holy place on the earth and that is as much as 360 items around the cover, Allahu Akbar.
and that the
and bulk belongs to Allah subhanho wa taala.
So do not invoke with Allah anyone do not.
Obviously, the word tattoo means to invoke like, but it also applies to all worship, right? In other words, do not associate partners with Allah subhanaw taala in all of your worship, not in your DUA, not in your Salah, not in your faith in your creed, nothing, don't invoke anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala is obviously applies to all it means do not associate partners with Allah subhanahu wa Ahana.
And we know Subhanallah even when the the idols were in and Muslim, who were the supposedly caretakers of a Muslim haram, these people who I'm speaking against, were worshipping these idols. So there it is, obviously, it is a command for Muslims, and it is so that the pagans can hear it. And then messaggi that Allah it belongs to Allah subhanaw taala so do not invoke anyone with ALLAH.
It is so common Subhanallah nowadays, to find people invoking everyone other than Allah Sparta, don't tell me they're not worshipping Jesus, to say upon them, they are.
Are they asking the Father in heaven?
For what they desire?
Have you heard them invoking Allah? I've heard them invoking Allah.
Oh, Lord Jesus, give me and this and that. They're invoking Jesus peace be upon him. What more do you want of worshiping others besides Allah subhanaw taala do not invoke anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala every other Schilke that you see in the world today, people are asking Buddha people are asking for sale.
People are asking Ali Robbie Allah Allah, people are asking trees and stones and stars.
People are asking idols. Yes, different idols. Don't say there's no in some people they think Yeah And subhanAllah that, you know, the Quran is speaking about idol worship and so on. There's no more idol worship, you know, no one's working. No one's worshipping stones anymore. Is that true?
What is the
predominant religion of China?
No discipline, no wonder they worship.
And Buddha is
And China makes up the largest proportion of today's population or do they not. And same with India, they don't have idols
1000s of items, they themselves tell you, we have hundreds of gods, we are worshipping hundreds of Gods
no idol worship, the world may have more idol worship now than ever before.
Only invoke Allah do not associate Parkins with Allah, this remains the
most awesome equipment unequivocal reality of this universe, the Oneness of Allah subhanho wa taala, that he is the one and only the only one who deserves worship, the only one who can harm and benefit, the only one who decrees whatever he pleases the only one who deserves full worship,
and be one that people are associating partners with. You can just
let your mind loose to understand how many people and things are being worshipped besides Allah subhanho wa taala.
And that when the servant of Allah stood up supplicating him, they almost became about him a compacted mass.
this also may have three different meanings, write them down, you will surely forget them.
Because I don't say this. I know many of you are smarter than me. But we have seen with time how we forgot them when we didn't write them. Now.
One of the meanings
is that this refers to the gym, when they came to hear the recitation of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, right, they were on top of each other as a compacted mass. And this is something great
as Subhanallah nowadays, people become compacted matters when they're going to hear some football by some famous scholar or chef or some
here and there, of course,
unfortunately, doesn't always happen. Sometimes the chef has to find a magnifying glass to see who is attending his lesson. But some of the six anima Shala you find their lessons are compacted maths people are just you know, on top of each other, to listen to the guidance that he has. So the jinn in this situation, were on top of each other like a compacted mass, okay to hear the recitation of the Quran Allahu Akbar.
And now stemma Anna phenomenal Jin Faqad in Quran and algebra, right.
So they were listening to the Quran, being recited by Prophet Muhammad wa salam. And we know that this may have been in several different situations. It didn't have to be necessarily
in the hadith of Ibn Abbas that we mentioned in the beginning of the Surah, right where Prophet Muhammad Salah was recited for an in solitude, and the companions were
playing with him at that time in JAMA, it may refer to that and it may refer to another situation where he was reading and the jinn were listening, and they were so abundant that they were like a compacted mass.
This is one meaning that this is part of their
in the Quran.
And nowadays, subhanAllah if only the human beings would be like the Djinn when it comes to listening to the Quran, and coming to the Quran, the other possible meaning
and that when the servant of Allah but this is the jinn, telling their fellow Jinn about what they saw,
and that when the servant of Allah who
Prophet Muhammad wa salam stood up supplicating Him in prayer, right? They almost became about him, a compacted mass who the Sahaba
was Sahaba they were surprised and some of the seller, as even Jerry mentioned, and he gave this meaning that they were so surprised about the way the Sahaba were just following the Prophet Muhammad Salah in his prayer. This was something new to them. Indeed, the prayer nowadays, as we know, is something amazing to disbelievers. They only when they see you praying up and down in congregation, it's really sad.
mind boggling even to some Muslims when they see this math in Maccha right following this one person, Roku and sujood and getting up it's really something amazing. Similarly here when Prophet Moussa Salim is praying and the companions are following him, and we know and the other Hadith where they had removed their sandals, right? They're following him. The honey, toe to toe, they have no idea why he took off his sandal in the middle of his prayer, but who cares?
So we're gonna do it. So they removed their sandals. Not in this situation right? In that other story. You know the story? How many know the story?
How many don't know the story? Oh, subhanAllah Are you kidding me? You don't know the story about where he moved the sandals.
See, you need to tell you these things. Because when I speak, I assume so many things. I assume presence this is that everyone knows this. But some of you don't know this, mashallah, and
should be known to all this. I think I've mentioned it so many times. You need to tell me when when there's something that I assume is obvious, and I just pass over it. Tell me No, please mention it, brother.
bother them how Selim was praying. And in the middle of his prayer, he took off his sandals.
So imagine you are praying to the Imam. And in the middle of the prayer, the Imam takes off his sandals.
Would you follow him or not? Is the Imam should I follow him or not? The Sahaba to no brainer, odd miles or send them remove the signal. So they all remove the sandals, their sandals? Then after the prayer said to them, Why did you remove your sandals?
They said we saw you take you off your sandals? So we took our person? It's clear.
He said to them Gibreel came to me in the middle of the prayer and told me that there is no Jassa on the sandal. No jazz, not
dirt. So there is no problem.
So I took off the Sunday.
But for you doesn't apply, they could have continued in the normal way.
And from this hadith, we take the the the benefit, the benefit. If you find the Jassa on yourself while you are praying,
and you are able to remove it, remove it and continue your prayer problem how seldom did not repeat the previous verses before. One as I was praying.
And then in the middle of the prayer, I realized there was medicine. And I removed it. And I continued prayer. Do I have to repeat the previous one? No, based on this hadith, right. Anyway, the point is the sahaba. They follow the buffalo Salem in everything that that he did, and especially in the prayer. So this is a second possible. Meaning that the the amazement of the Djinn at the Sahaba and how they were around him and praying as he's praying identically. And so the third possible meaning and this is the one that even Jerry's, and he gave preference to injury recovery, okay, based on the verses that follow it, and that is that
Allah smart Allah is saying and that when the servant of Allah stood up supplicating they almost became about him a compacted mass, referring to the pagans of the Arabs and the disbelievers
not a good thing. It was they're coming around and gathering around him, to kill him or to mock at him or to disbelieve in him and so on. Right. And we saw this in many situations also, as when Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim stood up in prayer near the camera, and then the disbelievers started boasting, who will go and step on the neck of Prophet Muhammad peace be one, why did he is he prostrating to his Lord who will do this and this, and they tried many times to abuse him in the middle of his prayer. Salatu was Salam. Right? And when he were to recite the Quran, they would come about him as in we would the verses that we studied in sweat marriage.
how come they are Subhanallah spread about you on the right and the left? They used to come and they would try to gather around him, but not necessarily to hear the guidance, but only to disbelief and to mock and so on. And it was only they had gathered around them to the effect that they were like a compacted mess around them. They wanted to finish him right. Are they solid with him with asleep?
When the hula calm Abdullah when Abdullah stood up supplicating him
Why didn't he mention
them by name
because of the honor, but he called them a servant.
Servant of law. This is the greatest honor. Allah subhanaw taala is honoring him by calling him Abdullah.
Nothing is better than the status of servitude to Allah subhanaw taala it's not an eightfold it's the greatest honor and therefore, Allah subhanaw taala never mentioned Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah by name in the Quran, unless he was referring to him in something where he was not addressing him directly. Did he ever say yeah, Muhammad
Muhammad Rasul Allah, he's, he is
confirming something. He's not addressing him. All of the other prophets peace be upon them all our address, why Allah by name?
Yeah, Musa. Right. Yeah, Brahim.
All of the prophets there and just by name, except you will never find them Muhammad Ali. You will only find here you have never been Allahu Akbar. The honor of Prophethood Oh, Prophet. Yeah. You heard Rasool or messenger.
Similarly, hearing called them ham doula, meaning, the greatest in Robu the the greatest and servitude to Allah subhanho wa taala. And this is something Prophet Muhammad wa salam used to take great pride in and look at the other verses Subhanallah does
know who is the means? The one who reached the pinnacle of obedience to Allah and that is probably the same as certain Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah Allah.
Right. So this is obviously referring to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu you already listen
to Muhammad? How much more do we have
almost finished five minutes, say oh Muhammad, I only invoke my Lord and do not associate with him. Anyone say to them, in other words, that I only invoke
Allah subhanho wa taala.
commented, the following.
He said how beautiful it is. That verse
19 comes after verse 18. This is the end of verse 19. Saying that when Allah subhanaw taala said and that the masajid are for Allah, so do not invoke with Allah anyone. This is the command
to the people of Prophet Muhammad wa sallam do not invoke anyone on Allah. What was their response
they didn't respond. They associated partners with Allah Tala refused the command to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone. Then he said that when the servant of Allah stood up supplicate him, they almost became about him a compacted mass is Yanni telling you the command and telling you the result and how they reacted to that command. What was the reaction? When COVID Maha Salam stood up to invoke Allah they were around him like a compacted mass. They refused the command and they tried to finish Prophet Muhammad Salah and his dad.
Say oh Mohammed I only invoke my Lord and do not associate with him, anyone. It is a direct command of what how Prophet Muhammad son or Salam should respond to them. Say that I only invoke my lord in nama. And
unless we know in the Arabic language is for what is called hustle, meaning this for restriction is restricting the fact the only one I invoke is Allah subhanaw taala in the room
when I wish we could be here and I do not associate with him, anyone. This my brothers and sisters should be our slogan.
We only invoke Allah.
If anyone comes you come and worship my Lord one day, and I will worship yours, the other. The slogan is, I only invoke Allah I do not associate any partners with him.
The slogan of the Muslim ummah should be that we only call on Allah subhanho wa taala. If at this spot or a tyrant tells you to worship Him, as surrounded with the people of Musa
many of the despots and tyrants do today, worship me.
Invoke me, ask me and I
I will give you I only invoke Allah and I do not associate partners with him,
invoke only Allah subhanaw taala because he's the only one who can give you what you asked for. And this is similar Subhanallah
to what was said to some of the only good Imams and scholars by some of the tyrants and despots.
When they said, come and ask me,
all people asked me, the King, I can give you a whatever you desire of the dunya.
He said, I want nothing from you. He says, why is that? He said, because what I want, you cannot give.
What I want, is not in your possession. It's in the possession of Allah subhanaw taala invoke Allah subhanaw taala. Ask him, and only him My dear brother, my dear sister to solve your problems, as came when you are in a predicament, go and seek refuge in Him. When you have that problem. Don't ask anyone other than Allah subhana wa taala. Don't ask what they call a Lea, they can do nothing for you by Allah. Beware of asking the dead
for things they cannot help themselves much less to help you. Do you know, my dear brothers and sisters, that there are 1000s of people today who ask their things and they invoke other than Allah subhanaw taala. They ask it of the dead. You know, not only in non Arab lands don't think it only occurs in India or Pakistan or Bangladesh or these different places. It occurs in Egypt and it occurs in Syria and it occurs in many different places. People are asking the things from people other than Allah subhanaw taala and this is major shift when the biller say I only invoke Allah subhanaw taala. I only invoke Allah subhanaw taala and ask him and I do not associate with him.
Anyone This is the whole power of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, worship Allah and do not associate partners with him
the whole day is this declaration of the Oneness of Allah subhana the purity of happy the purity of belief in Allah subhanaw taala and not associating partners with him. Now, you may say, Well, I'm not associating partners with him majorly. Well, that's very good. But minorly Oh, many. We're associating so many partners.
desires, right, showing off and ostentation. So many things we are doing for people.
Today, I donated 100 kV to the following. What were you telling him this? You gave it already? Right? It wasn't a public fundraiser. Are you? Where are you telling me this? Keep it between you and Allah? Are you doing it for me? You may have lost the word of a class. I'm not saying in a public fundraiser. It's perfectly fine to give but you have already given to someone why are you coming and saying it now? Or people Subhan Allah that are praying in the masjid Masha Allah and you find all the praying for a long time and they're looking around and they're making sure that people see them and so on. That's why it is recommended to pray sunnah at home. Right? As Prophet Muhammad
wa salam said, because it is further away from the
people people's desires. Look at the Schenkman is going on with respect to who?
whose authority it is to rule.
No, nowadays Allah is not ruling nowhere. Oh, so you want us to implement Sharia?
You want us to, to implement shadowed and ordained punishments and things like this? You want us to only follow Sharia and to completely cancel all the laws that we drafted? Yes, precisely. This is what this is what it means that I do not associate partners with Allah, Allah, the whole Tao of the Prophet, peace be upon them all is the one who rules is Allah subhanaw taala nowadays, no, no, no, no, no, no, don't think Allah is ruling in this dunya No, no, no. Again, render therefore to Caesar what is Caesar's, and render therefore what is to God who to God what is God's. So in other words, to God is worshipped in the masjid. And
that cat and you know simple things like this, and decayed and recitation of Quran, but in our dunya No, no, we Ruth
we are the ones who rule.
Allah subhanaw taala Yes.
His role is in the heavens, but not on the earth.
did you not leave the iron?
that he is the one who has a God in the heavens and God on the earth.
But it is us Muslims and it's up to us
to make sure that he is God on the earth, that his commands are obeyed on the earth. There is rules and each Sharia is obeyed and implemented on the earth may Allah subhanaw taala bring it back in sha Allah, pure as it is supposed to be, let us worship Allah subhanaw taala and let us disbelieve in everything that is worship besides Allah subhanaw taala
regatta Kalam faecal which is a common law
hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa salatu
definitely but unless we get from you know everything else from very clear verses and Hadith and so on, about the importance of praying in the masjid and the Danny According to some scholars bring the masculine Gemma is this word
apart from the GEMA 27 and the multiples of reward everyone knows this is part of the symbol of Allah the massages in general are the symbols of Allah subhanaw taala on the earth Okay, how did they extend that this is the way they used to identify Muslim lands from Muslim lands before they were to here and then they were to see massage and it means that the Muslim land what Muslim land exists without massage? Well, why the massage or the I mean the the the light which is shining, from the Muslim lands, okay, where Allah subhanaw taala is worshipped and his book is recited and knowledge is spread. This is the way it's supposed to be.
And this is why it is so highly recommended to build the massages of Allah subhanaw taala as Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said, If you build a masjid, even like Yanni the
he's giving you the example of something very small, it's actually impossible. It's just it's an exaggerated form of showing you that no matter how small you build the masjid Allah azza wa jal will build you a palace and Paradise he was talking about Jonnie like the the the small place of a cat, okay, where the cat sits or breeds or something like that. And the masjid is that small, that obviously don't have a masjid that small, but it's just to show you no matter how small we will demonstrate Allah azza wa jal will build you a house in paradise inshallah.
And then massage Allah. They belong to Allah Subhana Allah Allah azza wa jal is worship there in Allah is glorified there in yes
and this is why, excuse me, the disbelievers from antiquity and up till now and we see it they target the massage the Jews targeted massage it in and they they said more than 15 massage it would destroy it completely and others were partially destroyed samen how many of the massages were targeted? And as usual excuses or they are keeping weapons inside as usually I mean, there has to be an excuse otherwise, how do they you know, justify they have destroyed the massage they know that the massages are the holiest places for Muslims
and the previous section
all of the surah by the owner of the surah and one of the important themes in it is shift
right all of it from the very beginning the gin said I'm gonna be well a new Shrek
will not associate partners with our Lord right.
The concept of human beings seeking refuge and help from the Jinhwan O'Connor Regina INSIA Oh Do not be really mean and Jim Wright when they used to go to the valleys and they would say oh we seek the help of the leader of this valley or the chief of this valley from the Jim
This is all part of the Shrek and now you see that it is the beginning of again talking about the
the malice of shame
speaks about the massage and the importance of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. Without partners, but it's a theme, it's a continuing theme all over the surah as you'll see,
in addition to the fact that it may also be a reference to the fact that you should you should not have any shake in the massage
shake in the masjid
course there should not be shaking anywhere right, but especially the massage, how
if you have the grave and the message, that which Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem
and he cursed the Jews and the Christian because
they made the graves of the prophets, they made them as masajid as places of worship, there should not be a grave in the masjid and Masjid should not be war should not be built on the grave and the grave should not be built in the masjid and so on. All of this
can constitute should call
number of different situations and it is considered no it's not only that, that it is some considered it as they are not part of the masjid necessarily, because actually that was the house of Prophet Mufasa right as we know.
Right and the masjid then expanded after that, that was his house.
that was his house and he was
he had instructed that he would be buried in that same place right. This is the idea it was never part of the method itself alone.
Yeah, exactly. That was their house that was their house essentially.
the fact you have to even it could be mean to the gyms as well. They will also be
definitely, definitely. And this is this is what shows you that the Djinn as we said, are held accountable just like the believers. They will be punished by Hellfire for their sins and they will be rewarded in paradise inshallah. Bye mind you, some scholars, maybe in my albeit a minority said that there is Hellfire for the jinn. But there is no Paradise because he mentioned only Hellfire not paradise. But this is not correct below our lemon as one of the scholars said that you don't need any more evidence for the fact that there is also paradise for them than the previous verse, which is from an Islamaphobe who like to have our Okay, in addition to the fact that it is the justice of
Allah subhanaw taala and it's also an authentic hadith. The jinn will be in paradise, the believing jinn, the pious and obedient Jin will be in Paradise and the disbelievers of them will be punished by Hellfire Allah
just like the human beings, yes.
See, you will not be asked about
and we will not be asked about
this next time. See how long will bring us together then we will judge?
Okay, no, exactly.
The first one what what did he say? The you will not be asked what we committed? Yes. We will not be asked what you
know, what's the difference there?
First thing, saying them to them tell them that they will not be asked what we committed? Yes. Okay. Likewise, you will not be asked, but is an equal.
Look at the words.
I'm asking you is that the most? This is the verse logical logic I want to bring.
Bring about the beautiful meaning.
the difference is a Jamna without maroon and Jamna drama crime. You will not be asked about my crimes. And I'll not be asked about what you do. He didn't use crimes for both. He used crime for himself.
He used the the the the
The bad term and the harsh term for for himself
and the good term for them. You will not be asked about my sins, and I'll not be asked about what you do you see the difference? This is part of the wisdom of Dawa. This is a command that says the disbelievers this. In other words when you do Dawa, it's okay to accuse yourself. It's part of the tactic of Dawa. You may even say as that brother said, Yanni, upon which Subhan Allah Allah azza wa jal guided Sheikh Yusuf Estes, if your religion is better than mine, I'll follow you.
there anything wrong with that? Is his religion than yours? No, of course not of your religions by the minute, but if my religion is better than yours, better than then you should follow me. And upon that shackles of Esther's discovered that his religion is better than us, and he became Muslim. But similarly here, this part of the Dawa, okay, you can accuse yourself you can even say, you know, we are both searching for the truth, right? If you are the one who has the truth, I'll follow it. But if I have the truth, you should follow it off.
Who knows? Maybe I am completely wrong. So you can blame yourself right? Like this.
And when you are talking about them, you attribute the good
part of the wisdom and our Subhanallah that's the different term. A gentleman has a very big word
talking about people associating so many things.
I see so much people saying using two words.
Cross my fingers
Yeah, that's the
part of the useless superstition
your fingers fingers crossed
it's part of the
future touch metal, something will happen.
All harm and all benefit is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala there's a lot of superstition different things. Friday the 13th walking under a ladder.
You know different things like this is all part of superstition with his calling somebody on his back, calling
once I imported a car
and then I waited for my registration. New restriction. Waiting and waiting I'm going on a temporary registration is a noise taking advice taking months, or you don't notice the number has come to 30 Whatever. So nobody wants to kill me.
They're making a decision to remove the 30 days. It took so long.
Is not a reasonable
as far as my knowledge is the coinciding of Friday with 13 That's but apparently it's gone even wider than that.
following our own desires and
possible for somebody who's already done, but it'd be possible to fast on behalf of somebody already. Yeah, definitely. Definitely.
What does that have to do desires? He didn't say I can give myself say that I'm going to pause for you know if my father passed away
different deeds, different deeds have scholars different over fasting, Allahu Allah, there may be some differences over but the hadith is very clear. And the correct opinion on our LM is that you confess
by proxy for your father, for your mother or for a relative or something like that, as part of paying off a debt. Right. And in the Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad wa salam, it was said that
a woman came to the Prophet SAW Salem and she said, Oh prophet of Allah, my mother died and she didn't finish fasting and things of that nature.
So he said she Yanni Can I fast for her, he said do you see if she had a debt in her neck or on her shoulder? Would you pay off that debt? She said yes. Then he said the debt of Allah this is a debt to Allah subhanaw taala right but that of Allah Subhana Allah is even more worthy of you fulfilling it so fulfill the debt of this relative of yours if they didn't fast and Ramadan or if they had promised to fast a certain number of days for a certain reason reason right what is called method
then fulfill that for them yeah definitely.
know not only the son and the daughter, now there's someone else can also foster a relative or something like that. If you are fulfilling their death or something like that, you will be rewarded inshallah.
Allah Subhana Allah hamdulillah shadow. Minister Farrakhan
