Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Alhamdulillah I mean, a lot of Salah some of the sleep man so you know, Imam you know have you been? I will pass him Mohammed Abdullah, Allah Sahabah to here we are in women Tabea home the son in law yummy Dean
Subhana Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah tena indica and the Lollywood Hakima. Bashar Al Assad reverse silly embryofetal. That's a mill the Cerney. Kohli
with SMI now. obasan our call center in Quran in academia of hammer Allah I mean, we praise Allah Almighty and we send prayers and blessings upon the final messenger and the mercy to humanity. Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is normal family righteous companions and all those that follow them with the right guidance until the until the Day of Judgment.
Glory be to You, Oh Allah, no knowledge have we accept that what you have taught us Indeed you are the All Knowing the all wise, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our brains and our hearts to the novel Quran and to make us of those who rise in status when we recited and not otherwise insha Allah to make it an intercessor for us on the Day of Judgment.
Beloved brothers and sisters,
I love you for the sake of Allah.
We continue with Surah Al Jin.
And if Allah wills will try to finish it today in sha Allah.
Last we left off
the verse 19. Approximately, I'll start from there in sha Allah.
Well, yeah, but I'll just maybe say a word or two about.
About those verses. Actually, we spoke already about 18 and 19. I think we've said enough about those two verses.
Sorry, to come back at Mass. Yeah, we have come up to compacted math. I just want to say one thing about verse 18. One and misogyny that Allah
maybe brothers if you can come a little bit so you can close the the angle for me so that my neck can rotate less, because I like to speak to all of you can come all this way.
Yeah, that is also an issue now.
And he revealed that the messages are for Allah that the massages are for Allah subhanaw taala. And one thing that we need to emphasize is that the massage of the house is a philosopher no to Allah are like lights that are shining on every town in every country, to the extent that they are the symbols of Islam. Okay. And when you see masajid you know that there are Muslims and
to the extent that Yanni in Islamic history, when the Muslims entered to a certain town or something like that, and they didn't know whether the people were Muslims or otherwise, one of the ways they knew it is through the misogyny and through the
these are the symbols of Islam by which Muslims were identified for these masajid are like
guiding lights and towers in every Islamic country, and the more we have of them in sha Allah the better in terms of them of course, the Masjid is used as it is supposed to be, which is not just to drive in, pray the Salah and drive back out okay? There's not
it's not for drive in. A Masjid is a place where there's guidance with our lessons where there's the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala where Muslims get together when they speak when they plan and so on.
And this Subhanallah this role of the masjid to a large extent also we have lost okay and the masjid has become largely just a place where we pray and we leave it remains a guiding light, okay.
All it is is a place where Muslims pray and get together and hear lessons and guidance in sha Allah is will remain a guiding light that way.
Verse 20, in sha Allah
Allah He Nina che PA, G, B Bismillah.
mean I'm law he had
say, Oh Mohammed I only invoked My Lord, and do not associate with him anyone. So
we know that one of the opinions we mentioned about verse 19, is that when the servant of Allah,
Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim stood up and supplicated Allah, they almost became about about him like a compact with mass, that that could be a reference to the pagans of Maccha. Right. And if it is, indeed a reference to the pagans of Mecca, and that they were about, they were obviously gathered around him and collecting around him, in order to either stop him or to spread propaganda against him, or to walk at him and things of that nature. So as this was
almost a reference to the pagans, not accepting the message of Prophet Muhammad, Salah salah, and asking him to change the message and asking him to soften in his message, and asking him to compromise on his Lord and what he worships. worship our Lord one day and will worship yours the next and things of that nature. Then Allah subhanaw taala commanded him to leave all of that and to make it perfectly clear say all Muhammad I only invoke my Lord and do not associate with him anyone, okay? And invoking obviously is a form of a banner. In fact, it is one of the most important forms of ABA as Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam said in the Hadith, which there is some talk about
but some scholars Allah Allah have authenticated, which is
bad or thing or is generations that are similar to that, that is the essence of worship, okay. So when you Oh, when you say I only invoke Allah subhanaw taala means that yes, he will only ask Allah subhanaw taala for things and this is a big door for sure. In many different places, okay, where people invoke others other than Allah subhanaw taala. And in addition to that, it can be a reference to a bad or in general, when I say I only invoke my Lord, it means I only worship Allah subhanaw taala. And I do not associate with him anyone, this is a slogan, I invoke Allah alone, and I associate no others, okay? And
this is the essence of the message. And this is, as we said, this is a theme that repeats itself and so forth, and gin, the issue of the hate and the issue of
the malice of ship.
Will in general, be one I wish they could be had. I only invoked my Lord and do not associate with him, anyone.
This is similar to the other verses where we're also Prophet Muhammad Salah was commanded by Allah subhanaw taala
in me, whomever to Anam with Allah Mukhlis Allah who deem, say I've been commanded to worship Allah subhanaw taala. Since sincerely in other words, with complete sincerity in my religion, it means I worship Him with complete sincerity and do not associate partners with him. Right? And he said
the other day and I say to them, that I fear that if I disobey my lord, I fear the punishment of a great day, right?
Allah, Allah Houdini, if I want to do machine to mean Dooney I am sincere in my worship of the one and only Allah subhanaw taala worship whatever you please Okay, but these are similar verses. In addition to that, it is narrated on the authority of Lebanon bass, may Allah be pleased, may Allah be pleased with them, that three
men had come
to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and maybe I want mentioned with Surah this belongs to so that when we get to the surah we mentioned it Inshallah, and then you can tell me, where at least you can remind me of it. Three men with fairly strange names you may not have heard of, came to the Prophet Muhammad SAW Allah and they said to him, oh, Muhammad,
don't you know any other god along with Allah subhanho wa Taala ALLAH SubhanA Kianna only they found it strange that he was
declaring the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala
So they said to him, don't you know any other god with Allah besides Allah subhanaw taala Then Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said to them, la Illa Illa Allah, this is what I was sent with. I was sent with La Ilaha illa Allah and two, icon,
straight, very firm and simple and straight answer and upon that Allah subhanaw taala revealed one of the verses in Surah An app
so in other words, I only invoke my Lord, and I do not associate with him. Anyone.
Anyone who said, it means everything you can think of anyone and anything.
Do not associate anyone or anything with Allah subhanaw taala. Not in
don't put your trust trust in anyone besides Allah subhanaw taala don't worship anyone besides Allah, don't invoke anyone besides Allah subhanaw taala don't fear anyone besides Allah subhanaw taala don't hope and put your complete trust in anyone besides Allah subhanho wa Taala
the poet said,
maybe the best thing that a poet has said which is a conclusion in hell Allah Trieu everything besides Allah subhanaw taala is false. Everything. Everything you can think of.
It is false in one way or another. You cannot put your complete trust in it. You cannot depend on it completely. The only one you can depend on completely is ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala in everything you do, do it for Allah subhanaw taala in your deeds, make them sincere for Allah subhanaw taala and do not associate partners with him. In fact, if there is any part of the deed that it is not for Allah subhanaw taala In other words, it is half for Allah and half for someone.
It is completely for that someone is in the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah, they said Don't say it is for Allah and for so and so or for Allah and for this and that. If it is if there is something else, it is for that it is not for Allah subhanho wa Taala
say Indeed I do not possess for you the power of harm
the power of harm or right direction
now he's speaking or he's commanded by Allah subhanaw taala to speak to the pagans to say to them, I do not possess for you harm, alright, direction, don't In other words, don't look to me for harm or benefit or guidance or anything of that nature. And one of the things that's very interesting is that Allah subhanaw taala did not say usually, the only and as part of the eloquence of the Arabic language, usually you are going to if you're going to mention two opposites or contrasting things, okay, he would have said lamb Nicola ko
And we see this in many places in the Quran, right?
is the opposite of enough. So I do not possess for you harm or benefit. Technically, he used the right direction, Russia, the opposite of Russia is not the opposite of Russia or Russia is right.
That's obvious from the Quran and from the Arabic language. There's, there's the verse in Surah Telara, which tells us that, so
he didn't say, he said number one, one Russia, so that with these two words, he included all four concepts, all four
Well, it means he does he does not the Prophet SAW Selim does not possess for them harm or the opposite, which is benefit nor right guidance nor misguidance.
So, he brought the four okay. And he brought the two contrasting things from the two categories, right, you have two categories Harm and benefit and guidance and Miss guidance. So they brought harm and guidance. The other two are included in that which is Miss guidance and benefit, okay, so in other words, I do not possess for you any of those four things, neither harm, nor benefit, nor misguidance nor right direction. Everything comes back to Allah subhanaw taala
And this is the beauty of these verses that Allah subhanaw taala is telling Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to completely attribute things to Allah and this is not easy.
Or is it?
Definitely, but attributing things to Allah, especially since He is a messenger. Okay?
You would think, as
he is the last messenger, that maybe you'd like to attribute something to himself, you would think that this person that was sent by a wasp pinata Allah for the guidance of all of humanity's he'd like to say that guidance is coming from me. No, of course he doesn't want to, but usually you find amongst people, they'd like to attribute part of the things to themselves. Also, it's not easy to always attribute things to someone else. It's like going to a scholar and telling him mashallah, that was a great, great lesson, and then he confesses to you, this is not my knowledge, I copied it completely from this shake, or from that color, that's not easy. He'd love to attribute it to
And similar, so many other things we want, we'd rather attribute good to ourselves, but I was the one behind this. Here I was telling the
absolve yourself of everything, and attributed to me.
This is the ultimate in servitude and obedience to Allah subhanaw taala the ultimate inner booty, that I am just a slave servant of Allah, I invoke him only I don't associate partners with him, I do not possess for you anything, I cannot help you in anything. It's all it all goes back to Allah subhanaw taala. And this is the way of a Muslim, always bringing things back to Allah subhanaw taala even if I were to do something to help you, and in a war on a worldly level, I was the one who helped you. And you come to me and you say, brother, thank you so much. You did this you rescued my life. You are the one who solved my problem or something like that.
It's important for me to say no, I didn't do anything. This is the work of Allah subhanaw taala always attribute things back to Allah subhanho wa taala. So he says to them, I do not possess the power of harm or right direction. We know also and thought
they you were superstitious about him SallAllahu wasallam. When something good would happen, they would say this is from Allah subhanaw taala. And when something bad happens, they say this is because of you. Right?
And then Allah azza wa jal ordered Prophet them has asked them to tell them say it is all from Allah subhanaw taala. In other words, it has nothing to do with Prophet Muhammad Salah Don't be superstitious about it Harlan benefits, guidance and deviance. It comes from Allah subhanaw taala. Prophet Muhammad Al Salam has nothing to do with it.
I do not possess for you The Power of Habit right direction. So don't look at me. Don't only just look at what is in front of your nose, connect yourself with the ultimate power.
The ultimate reality of this is Allah subhanho wa taala. He is the one who harms and he's fixing their app EDA, right? He is guiding them to that which they are very much required because they associate partners with Allah day at night.
he says, See, indeed there will never protect me.
From Allah, anyone. If, in other words, if I should disobey, nor will I find in other than Him a refuge, because they had asked him to compromise on all types of things in terms of the message. He's telling them. Listen,
I'm a messenger.
I cannot do anything. This is not mine. I have been commanded. I am coming to you because I have been commanded by Allah subhanaw taala it's not up to me. I am not making my own decisions. I am not bringing all of this out of my whim. I cannot one day compromise with you and the other day,
transmit the message as Allah subhanaw taala asked me, I cannot answer you to your wins, I am a messenger. And if I were
to go astray or to not deliver the message,
then I fear because Allah Subhan that because no one will protect me from Allah subhanaw taala we know from Surah
What is the verse where Allah subhanaw? Taala mentioned that the prophets of salaam were not to?
If you were to what?
Yes. If you were to lie about Allah subhanaw taala. So this is one way. Of course, we're just talking theoretically, right? We're not talking practically, theoretically. One way the messenger can deviate from his message is to lie about Allah, God forbid. But obviously, the athlete has not fixed yet. So they are thinking he might be a messenger and he's lying about Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala told them there, that if he were to lie, then Allah subhanaw taala
would seize him, right?
By the right, and that the his aorta would be cut and so on.
Prophet Muhammad wa Salam is telling them that if I do not deliver the message, let's say he didn't lie about Allah subhanaw taala, but he decided not to deliver, he decided to sit at home.
Can he do that? He feels the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala he's commanded by Allah subhanaw taala he cannot disobey, he will deliver the message
to the last centimeter and not leave anything. The most miniscule inspiration came from Allah subhanaw taala he will deliver it as it was sent to him.
So he says to them, indeed, they will never protect me from Allah and one and many of the messengers be split upon them all said the same thing to their peoples when they asked them to either leave the message or or stop calling to Allah subhanaw taala and so on, and he said, nor will I find in other than Him a refuge. In other words, my only refuge is Allah's Park, I cannot find refuge in anyone else. And this is a lesson for you and me, my dear brothers and sisters, take refuge in Allah subhanaw taala seek refuge with Allah subhanaw taala all refuges with him.
You, your friends, your family may be able to help you in certain situations here and the only one who is with you at all times and all places
is Allah subhanaw taala whether you're on Earth, whether you you start your rose to the heavens, wherever you are, Allah is with you at all times, make him the ultimate refuge. And this is what Prophet Muhammad SAW celibacy and nor will I find in other than Him
the refuge in the lineage Iran in Allah, if Allah subhanaw taala wants to harm me in any way he can. Can any of you stop me? Stop him sorry.
If Allah subhanaw taala want to to benefit you or to harm you, if the whole world
the whole world, all of the human beings that are living on the earth at this moment, all came together, and all of the genes and all of their power and all of the animals and everything in life, if they wanted to stop Allah from benefiting you or harming you, they cannot accept that that is something that Allah subhanaw taala decreed Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
Everyone bring all of your supporters and all of your strength of Allah azza wa jal wills, whatever He decrees is going to happen, nothing will stop it. In fact, it is
narrated about aluminum Hasan Basri
when he was giving advice to one of the governors of Bill Hoba.
And then nobody ever was being given commands by Aziz Ibn Abdul Malik
to do things that
were not according to Islam, and they,
it was this obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. So he didn't know what to do. And he took the advice of Imam Shafi and Imam Shafi didn't give him
the strong advice that maybe he needed. So you gave him some soft advice, okay. And the man was shabby later on confessed, okay, that I was, I gave him advice, but at the same time, I was trying to keep my relationship with him.
did not fear
not Hassan muscley said it like it is without any dilution.
So when he asked him about it, he told him man, it is a long advice, a beautiful advice, part of it is that soon you will be in your grave, no one will be able to help you in your grave, or when the grave constricts itself upon you. And that he said to him, and this is the important part that I want to mention. He said to him, fear Allah,
in your dealing with your zeal, and do not fear your zt in you're dealing with Allah subhanaw taala and know very well, that if you were to
obey Allah subhanaw taala and this obey is Eid, then Allah subhanaw taala will be with you. And if you this obey Allah and you obey, is it the know very well that Allah subhanaw taala is against you, and you cannot do anything about that. Okay? Because in the liturgy, Ramana Maharshi no one can protect me from Allah subhanaw taala if he wishes anything for me of harm or benefit, no one can protect you from Allah subhanaw taala beware, my dear brother and my dear sister, fear Allah subhanaw taala and be very
cautious about your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala because if He intends anything for you, based on your actions and your deeds, no one can stop it is between you and Allah subhanahu wa Ohana
and therefore, this is the only the most important medicine. Let's call it okay and discipline for the oppressors in the OMA and the tyrant in the ummah. How does one oppress someone else? How does one cheat someone else out of their rights?
The way they do it, is because they're not fearing Allah subhana they don't feel that Allah subhanaw taala can pick them at any moment. They don't feel
that no one can protect them from Allah, it's almost as if they feel someone can protect them from Allah subhanaw taala maybe they think their children, their strength, their was their relationships and their connections, as if all of that can protect them from the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala Beware, beware of bullying. Beware of injustice, my dear brother, my dear sister, it is the sin
whose punishment you will find not only in Alaska, you will find it in dunya it will hasten itself for you here in the dunya some way or somehow and we've heard plenty of stories Subhanallah practical stories of people who have done injustice to someone weak and oppressed. And all all it is required upon that is one from this full week of First Person.
Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said this is answered even if he was a calf.
Beware even of doing injustice to a week, this reliever, much less a believer, even if a disbeliever who is oppressed by you, or done injustice by you?
invokes Allah subhanaw taala against you.
Then Allah subhanaw taala will respond
and you will find the punishment in your life. Be weird. No one can protect you from ALLAH SubhanA say Indeed I do not possess say indeed they will never protect me from Allah anyone, nor will I find him find in other than Him refuge
law he worries
Holly bean, Holly Deena fee
but I have for you only notification from Allah and His messages. And whoever this obey is Allah and His Messenger, then indeed for him is the fire of Heaven.
In love Allah, except, right. It's an exception.
They said but I only have for you. It's an exception in the last for exception. exception from what? Okay? This is the question. This could go back to be a reference to
Verse 21, say Indeed I do not possess for you the power of harm or right direction, except,
except notification from Allah and His messengers. In other words, I cannot harm you or benefit you in any way, the only thing I can do is give you notification from Allah subhanaw taala and deliver his message to you, that's all I can do what I cannot, but I can deliver the message to you the way precisely he asked me to do so, I will give it to you exactly as he commanded me. Other than that I cannot do this is one possible meaning, the other possible meaning is that
back to verse 22
Indeed they will never protect me from Allah anyone.
Only, or except if I give the notification of from Allah subhanaw taala to you and deliver the message. In other words, the only one thing that protects me from Allah subhanaw taala is for me to deliver the message perfectly as Nina has commanded me and even Catherine compared it to the other. Okay, the beautiful area where Allah subhanaw taala said
Zilla in a
sim will come in.
Or messenger, your soul.
In other words, inform and deliver the message
of that which has been sent to you from your Lord. And if you do not, then you have not delivered his message.
And Allah protects you from people.
So you see the juxtaposition of the command to deliver the message. And then Allah azza wa jal will protect you. But if you do not deliver the message, Allah will not protect you, you see. So this could also refer back to that idea that they will never protect me from Allah, anyone. The only protection for me from Allah is to notify you
of that which Allah subhanaw taala is telling you, and deliverance of his messages, this is the only thing
that can protect me.
So in other words, he is only a messenger
delivering the message. And the same with you and me.
Deliver the message, my dear brother and sister guidance is not in your hand, deliver the message in the best way, in the most beautiful way with wisdom and good speech, right? As Allah subhanaw taala commanded, but after that, it's not up to you. If it is something absolutely uncertain in Islam, without a doubt, there's no difference about it.
And this person you are doing Dawa disagrees with it.
You cannot change the way of philosophy in order to please never wins.
This is the message of Allah, you will deliver it in the best way. There's something he disagrees, you try to logically explain it to them. They don't agree or they don't accept. That's their problem. That's not yours. You deliver the message in the best way, in the most perfect way, in the softest way in the wisest way, but you cannot change anything. You cannot compromise.
This is the religion of Allah subhanaw taala he came and asked you about something which you felt he's not going to accept if I tell him well.
This is the message of Allah subhanaw taala he's asking you for that.
In other words, don't bring things that may have, you know more than one opinion or may confuse them. But if they came and asked you about
answered them in the best possible if you don't know go and ask and get the right answer but in the end, delivered the message as it is as Allah subhanaw taala sent it.
So all he has SallAllahu wasallam for them is notification from Allah and His messengers, messages and Whoever disobeys Allah and His messenger. So this is the end okay. They do not accept. I am notifying you whoever disobeyed Allah and His Messenger, then indeed for him as the fire of hell will hear the biller they will abide there in forever. Whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger obviously, this is a reference to this obeying Allah and His Messenger in topsheet. Right. And in not abandoning ship in the essence of the message itself. It's not only talking about this
Because someone might say see, this proves the
which is obviously deviance and false that whoever this obey is Allah, Allah will be punished in hellfire forever, right.
This is falsehood. This is not what the this is not the belief of and Sunnah. If one does a sin, even if it is a major sin doesn't mean it'll be in hellfire forever, right? The hours they said otherwise. They said if someone
commits a major sin, a Kabira they will be punish by Hellfire forever. No, this is not. This is not the belief.
And it's a long topic and there's a lot of evidence and it to show otherwise. But this is this is maybe one of the verses they'd like to use as evidence. But here we say this disobedience to Allah and his messenger is in the essence of the message of hate, okay, of declaring the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala and abandoning ship, whoever disobeyed Allah and His Messenger than indeed for him is the fire of hell. They will abide there in forever Beware my dear brother and my dear sister before you this obey Allah subhana wa Tada before you disobey and you are about to disobey and the sin is right in front of your eyes and you are going to commit it. Remember that you will stand before
Allah remember the saying, I believe it is awfully my Mujahid who said about the verse
Well, I'm in half I'm a combi.
When I had mapsand in however in a janitor here, when he was referring to what a man haha
as for the one who fears the standing before their Lord, he explained it as the following. When you are about to commit a sin and it is in front of your eyes, and you are going to do it, you will remember that you will stand one day before Allah subhanaw taala then this idea applies to you.
And you know, and I know, the most difficult time to remember the standing for Allah is when you are just about to commit a sin. Right? That isn't the problem how seldom where the man is taken from the heart at that point, right? Because you are so close to committing the sin.
If you are so close to committing the sin, the whole point is that you are not fearing Allah subhanaw taala you are not watching him as you should.
And that sin is inviting you and the Shavon is inviting, so you are so close to it. At that point, it's very difficult to remember how
I will one day stand before Allah and have to answer for this. But if you do that,
and it protects you from sinning, then that verse applies to you, the one who feels the standing before the Lord subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment.
Either you do not
call the disbelievers continue until when they see that which they are promised then they will know who is weaker in the helpers and less in number. So he says
after huzzah Salam has threatened them with Hellfire if they disobey and they do not follow him in the message. Then if they continue this way, they will continue until they see that which they are promised okay. And it's almost as if
when he told them beware Whoever disobeys Allah and His messenger then he will be punished by hellfire and will abide there in forever the
natural consequence and response of theirs to this is
when is this which this which you are promising us we are
doing quantum solid all over the Quran right? They say when is this promise that you are promising us?
If you are truthful, so
maybe here they said the same? Where is it? Bring it on? Tell us about it. So the answer is they will continue until they see that which they are promised. Then they will know who is weaker and help us unless a number because maybe they thought that the thing that will help them on that day or their numbers. Okay, as in the famous Hadith which we've mentioned a lot of times, where some of the pagans said
that they will protect each other from the 19 Angels of hellfire right one of them said 17 of them
In our mind, are a new handle to and I'll handle the other 17. And they went ahead as part of their mocking. So it's almost as if they thought that numbers will avail them on the Day of Judgment.
Then they will know who is weaker and helpers? Yes, it seems like the Prophet SAW Selim is weak, without helpers without support, and that they can kill him and that they can go after him. On that day they will know who is the one who is weaker and helpers unless the numbers
again the Quran is replete with the verses that say, they will have no helpers to avail them on the Day of Judgment, nothing, not even their own families or the numbers that they boasted about here in the dunya
say, I do not know if what you are promised.
Or rather let me say, let me say something about the verse before.
Say I do not know if what you are promised is near or if my Lord will grant for a long period. So the natural response of his to this is I don't know when this day that your promises even I will I'm telling you about it and threatening you with it. I have no idea when this day will come to pass. I do not know if what you are promised is near. Or if my Lord will run for a long period Subhanallah you see complete submission, complete servitude. I have no idea. Like when Giblin Ali Salam asked him for the Lord Himself right.
When is the day of judgment?
So what did he answer?
the person who's being asked is no more knowledgeable than the one was asking. Right. So you and I are the same in this. Allah subhanaw taala decides the time of the day of judgment no one knows. Okay. As Rashad Khalifa used to say that he knew when the day of judgment once he died.
He was assassinated.
Many people will claim
that they know what the Day of Judgment is. This is complete hype. Even the prophets peace be upon them all do not know. Though they might know some of them, that Allah azza wa jal informs them of as we'll come to see, but the Day of Judgment, no one, it is so hidden, that no one knows about it, and no one will ever know about it. When is it? Allah Allah, Allah Allah. So he says to them, I don't know if what you were promised is near, or my Lord Allah grant for a long period, maybe my lord decides to postpone it, as long as He wills. It's not up to us. Don't worry about it. Also, this is not your concern. Once you die, your day of judgment starts, right. The problem was,
that man was asking him what they've done.
Once you die, then your day of judgment has started because you have left the state of the dunya you've entered the stage of birds.
And you have left the stage where you can still do deeds.
So your day of Dharma has essentially started because there is punishment in the grave. And there is pleasure in the grave. May Allah azza wa jal protect us inshallah.
And you can no longer do anything to avail yourself. But up till now, as we are sitting here today.
Avail yourself as you please. There are many magic tools in the hobby be able to do whatever you please. He is all seeing of what you do. You're still alive, do what you want. One of the
pious predecessors had dug a grave for himself inside his house, to remind himself of this,
to remind himself of a grave. So every now and then he would
enter his grave, and he close it upon himself. And he imagined that he is in the grave.
and he would stay there for a while.
And one day it is said
that he, it's almost like he had put some big rock upon himself that he couldn't lift himself. So usually he'd call his wife and his wife would remove it. One day, he called his wife and his wife didn't answer. Maybe she wasn't there. And calling and calling and she didn't answer. This was starting to seem like reality. And he was scared. You can
Imagine and and this is just the he hasn't died yet. He's just in fight and he can't get out. And he wants to get out. And he started feeling is his breathing, constructing. And eventually after a while she came and she opened it for him, and he was afraid and he was breathing heavily and he was and he thought to himself Subhanallah
I couldn't handle this, what is what is the grave? May Allah protect us that is when the day of judgment starts. For us, it is not nearly the final day of judgment, it says to them, I do not know when is the day of judgment and this is the only this was asked of him in several places. As mentioned several times in the Quran, even Kathy
uses this is Subhan Allah and this shows you the only the the depth of their knowledge, he uses this idea to contradict and to deny a hadith that some of the ignorant use to spread between them.
And obviously this, maybe not even week probably Moldova, okay, a hadith that says the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam will not spend more than 1000 years
under the soil.
Meaning that within 1000 years of him being alive, or him dying, sorry, on the Day of Judgment,
it's been 1400 years, but in the time of Kathy that had not passed,
because Kathy was was died approximately 774 hingedly we're talking the eighth century right. So, at that time, it was still barely maybe 1000 years,
some 700 years back there was still two or 300 years left,
but with his knowledge Subhanallah depth of knowledge and analysis in the Quran, he said this proves otherwise because he does not know when it is so how can he come and say it is 1000 years, okay? And this is what maybe this is some of the ignorance to spread amongst themselves. Obviously it is false because seldom doesn't know and none of the prophets know and none of the prophets peace be upon them all don't know then definitely the human beings also don't know
is Knower of the unseen. So, he tells you as they don't know who is the one who knows the Knower of the unseen
and that is Allah subhanaw taala he is Knower of the unseen and he does not disclose his knowledge of the Unseen to anyone behind my dear brothers and sisters is to him alone Okay, he is owner of the hive and the whole idea of believing in hive and the importance of believing in the unseen is that it is unseen. If it is something that you can witness then you and I cannot compete in it the competition is in believing that which we do not see okay, believing in
and part of it is almost power to Allah. Okay.
We do not see him, but obviously all of the indications and the signs are there. But the hive in terms of knowledge of the Unseen everything that you can imagine on the unseen, this belongs exclusively to Allah subhanaw taala and that's why he says he does not disclose his knowledge of the Unseen to anyone follow up bajada
Okay, there is an exception, all right. But for all practical purposes and the general rule, they also as they say, okay,
is that Allah azza wa jal is not unseen and no one knows the Unseen, even the prophets peace be upon them all. They don't know the unseen, right? The Jinn they do not know the unseen these soothsayers and fortune tellers they do not know the unseen no one knows the Unseen by their cousin sisters. I don't care Nostradamus you know God and right once or twice or three times he doesn't know the unseen
but the unseen Allah subhanaw taala may inform some of his lip service about it as we will see.
Manual terrible soon.
Who yes no call me any
quantity fi all
except whom he has approved of messengers. Does that mean some messages are not approved?
except to whom he has approved of messengers
some have been given the possible but also possibly, there are things in the Quran there are statements that come, they say scholars say that it is coming
it is something that is
coming along with
that concept. It's a concept that is tied closely to that concept so it comes along with it
such as when Allah says in surah a nude
what does he say?
And do not compel your slave girls to prostitution, if they desire chastity,
have the desire chastity, don't compel them to prostitution. But if they don't desire chastity, then compel them to prostitution.
This is a similar concept, it means do not compel your slave girls to prostitution, if they desire chastity, meaning that and usually the case is that they desire chastity. So how can you compel them to prostitution? Similarly, here, okay, except whom he is approved of messengers, they are messengers of his because he approve of them, because he chose them, because he selected them right out of the rest of humanity. So that is something that is coming along with that concept. It's not that he is approved of some and disapproved of others can we do it after the
Accept whom he is approved of messengers and indeed, he sends before him I eat messenger and behind him observers, so accept to me as approved of messengers then they may know some of the unseen that Allah subhanaw taala tells them about something that he has informed them about Prophet Muhammad wa sallam mentioned a lot of things of the unseen Can you give me a few
informing of the unseen, he's there, he's seeing the unseen, but being informed of him telling us about future things.
Of the signs of Day of Judgment, okay.
One on One by one, this one.
conquering different places during the Battle of the Trench, does that say one somewhere else?
What about them?
Well, yeah, I mean, this is all part of the Quran. Correct. Everything that he mentioned, from the Quran, it's all part of
similarly to the Romans being defeated, right, in the lowest land or in the nearest land.
But there are a lot of things that are very specific also, such as the the the Battle of German,
the Battle of the Camel where say that Muhammad went out, okay. And he basically foretold that one of his wives is going to go to a certain location and it turned out to be
and at that point, she was going to go back
when she found out she was the one that he had mentioned.
He told us that the deviant sector is going to kill you
Okay, the one that is
the one that is against the, against you or they are the ones who are who started or
they were the side which is incorrect, and according to most scholars,
exactly, exactly. Yes. They are companions. May Allah be pleased with them all. And they had he had ultimately Amana Vinny acid was killed precisely as Prophet Muhammad wa sallam had mentioned several things many things like this that were mentioned specifically about even about the unseen that
Allah subhanaw taala had informed him about that he had no way of knowing about any of this. Yes.
The one telling Soraka about the bracelet Exactly. That you are going to wear the bracelets of course.
Follow the Leader of Persia, exactly. For many, many examples of this where Allah subhanaw taala informed Prophet Muhammad Al Salam of the unseen, okay? But this is part of what Allah subhanaw taala allowed to His Messengers except whom he is approved of messenger, mind you
the day of judgment and it's fine, still unseen and has not been informed to anyone not an angel and not a prophet
except whom he is approved of messengers then indeed he sends before him ie the messenger
and behind him observers
are they are the messengers peace be upon them all the only ones who have observers to protect them
to go back home in quantum solid
everyone has angels protecting them. There are so many are being killed by the followers
No, no, that's something else. I'll answer it if you ask me.
Protective angels? Yes, correct. No, I protect the venue.
There's an ISA that very good.
And you know approximately where it is
Surah Allah and Allah subhanaw taala says.
Allah Most High says
it's three to eight.
He is the knower. And notice these verses Subhanallah and there's similarity to the verses we are reading okay. Here also Allah mentions that he is Knower of the unseen. He says in verse nine, on three to page three to seven, he is Knower of the unseen and the witness the grand the exalted, it is the same to him concerning you whether one conceals his speech or one publicizes it, and whether one is hidden by night or conspicuous among others by day for him are successive angels before and behind him, who protect him by the decree of Allah subhanho wa taala.
This is the first
so in other words, everyone has protected the angels Okay. In front of you and behind you. You have protective guardian angels in heaven and Cathy, combined those two with the two on your shoulders and he says you have four angels with you in the morning when the day and for other angels with you at night because we know they switch they have shifts, right? They have the morning shift and the evening shift. The morning shift is up to salata. The morning shift is up to Salatin, and then they switch. Okay, as in the famous Hadith where Allah subhanaw taala asked them What did my slit what were my slaves doing? If you pray to us or in China, they will say, Oh Lord, we found them praying
and we left them praying. So in both cases where there is a relieving of shift, if you had prayed Arsalan Gemma and
they go back up to Alaska, and they say, We came to them praying and we left them praying.
So four angels during the day and four angels during the night two that are writing and two that are protecting, this applies to all that means what Allah azza wa jal is mentioning here is one of the jinn is special protection for the messenger specifically, this be upon them
when he says and indeed he sends before him and behind him observers, okay, and this means that Allah Subhana Allah is sending these protective angels
in order to protect the messenger, okay? And this could have many different meanings
as we'll see here.
One of the reasons for protecting the messenger is protecting the message that is coming to them, protecting them in the state of receiving revelation and inspiration from Allah subhanaw taala. So that that revelation is not confused.
Okay, so that the shopping do not come the gym, right? The disbelieving gym do not come and in some way
adulterate the message. There are these protected angels who are protecting the why and protecting him the messenger so that he can deliver the message completely and as perfectly as possible, okay without any mistake and this is why we say that part of our RP that is the Prophet Muhammad, Salah, and all of the prophets peace be upon them all are infallible concerning their prophetic information that they give concerning their that they do not make mistakes.
Other situations they are regular human beings like you and me. But concerning the Dawa, they delivered perfectly as Allah subhanaw taala has commanded them. And part of that is the protective angels protecting the messenger
peace be upon him
in delivering the message.
in the situation that a prophet was killed or assassinated, this is a situation where
the protective angels stopped protecting him because this was something that is
something decreed. You see what I'm saying? The other Hadith that mentioned the protected angels may protect that person from everything except that which is decreed they cannot protect them from it otherwise, they are a worldly means of protecting the person
the dilemma and
to be more help on the saw in the that he
Mohamed Salah me know that they have conveyed the Messages of the Lord and he has encompassed whatever is with them and has enumerated all things in number Allah.
In other words,
Allah subhanaw taala sends before him and behind him the messenger observers why. So that he one explanation Muhammad Allah may know and there are other explanations so that
someone may know who that someone is what scholars different about
there are four possibilities. Number one,
narrated that this is a reference to Prophet Muhammad,
Allah azza wa jal
then it the verse is read, that Allah azza wa jal has sent before every messenger before him and behind him observers, so that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam may know
that they have conveyed the messengers of the Messages of their Lord Allahu Akbar, and this is a clear
of the lofty status of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so that he may know that Allah azza wa jal has done this, so that our beloved Prophet Muhammad Salah may know that they indeed, have conveyed the Messages of the Lord.
Because now he's sure that all of the messengers have conveyed the Messages of the Lord, because they were protected by observers behind them and in front of them. And Allah azza wa jal did that so that he may know this, and be sure of it, as he is the final messenger SallAllahu
The second opinion on the authority of an ibis, he says that when Jibreel and a Salah came down with the revelation, for angels were sent along with him.
For angels were sent along with him.
So that Prophet Muhammad, Allah may know that the angels have correctly delivered the why from Allah.
Is that clear?
So the first opinion, both concerning Prophet Muhammad salah, but the first one, so that he may know that the messengers, the human messengers, indeed, delivered their message here he's saying, so that he Prophet Muhammad, Allah may know and be sure that the angels have delivered the inspiration of Allah subhanaw taala completely and perfectly and for that, ever Abbas says that Jabril Ali Salam came with four angels
This is not the only something that
only one may doubt, because Allah subhanaw taala as we know, and as is authentic, we know that Surah Al and the ham was revealed in its entirety, not gradually, it's one of the sources that came completely all together, so that an arm was revealed in its entirety. At night.
With the companionship of 70,000 Angels, Allahu Akbar
shows you the greatness of the surah. You can imagine the person entered sort of
almost 26 pages, I believe, only when you look at any person, and he has 100 People walking with Him, you think Allahu Akbar, who is this great king, can you imagine someone with 70,000, this surah has come with 70,000 Angels bringing it and protecting it this way, this great inspiration from the last word in its entirety, all at night. So it is not
hard to believe that along with Jabril, I set up every time there was Why four angels were there to protect that way from the
from the Supreme from those who want to come and to seal of that way, and to take from that unseen and to mix it and adulterated and add lines to it and give it to others. So this way, the way was completely protected, all the way until it reached Prophet Muhammad wa salam, and he delivered it in its perfection.
This is the second the third opinion is the opinion.
The third opinion is also narrated, I believe on the authority of silence and
the third opinion is the opinion of Lima Mujahid who said, so that the pagans may know
that it's referring to the pagans so that the pagans may know not Prophet Malzahn so that the pagans may know that indeed, the messengers have delivered the messages, their message the message of Allah subhanho wa taala. If they had been in doubt, that these messengers are indeed Yanni, conveying the message as it has been delivered to them,
Allah subhanaw taala sent protective angels for the messenger so that they may know that indeed, all of the messengers had delivered their messages perfectly,
to the last Iota as Allah subhanaw taala instructed them the fourth opinion and by the way, I've been very, very lean towards the opinion of Lima, the first opinion the fourth opinion
is, so that Allah
Lea Allah Mala.
But of course Allah, Allah doesn't come to know something, he knows all right, but we see in several places in the Noble Quran, such as makalah Illa, Allah Allah
And such as well may Allah Allah Allah,
Allah Allah Allah sobre, LA, right. This when it is when knowing in these verses is referencing Allah subhanaw taala it is so that Allah may make evidence, Lord He knows it, but the meaning is, so that Allah may make it practically evidence so that Allah subhanaw taala may decree it or may make it come to pass in the dunya okay, this is the meaning of the Allah Allah okay.
Because it has to do with knowledge and this can be the same
all right, Leah lemma, so that Allah may make evident that they have conveyed the Messages of their Lord protected them with angels, so that he may make evident okay to all
and he that he may make it come to pass, that the messengers have conveyed the Messages of their Lord
and he has encompassed whatever is with them. So I have no doubt about that which has come to the messengers peace be upon them all.
several scholars, this is a this is a possible
a possible understanding of the verse
what happened the melody him
And he has compass whatever is with them. So everything Subhanallah that he has brought them, he has composted and he knows it already. Don't be.
Don't be thinking about the these are all worldly means the angels and so on Otherwise Allah subhanaw taala has compassed all okay? And specifically he has come, he is encompass whatever is with them, right.
In other words with the messengers
don't be thinking that not that he has only encompassed whatever is with them. He has encompassed all whatever is with them, and whatever is with everyone else clear.
Therefore, he says, and he has enumerated all things in number, Allah.
Everything My dear brothers and sisters, yeah, honey, think of the the vast numbers of everything in the world. Allah has enumerated it.
How many atoms exist in the universe?
Allahu Akbar. How many protons? How many electrons? How many quarks? How many gluons that we're getting into?
How many planets? How many planets? How many stars? We said that? Astronomers estimate that it is one times 10 to the 21 stars 21 zeros put a one and 21 zeros for the number of stars and planets in the universe. How many human beings lived on the earth? How many grains of sand?
How much bacteria how many different species of viruses, how many different species of fish in the sea? How many drops of water, Allahu Akbar, you can keep going on and on and on how many jinn, how many angels
just keep going on.
He's enumerated all things it means everything is in the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala nothing is hidden from him.
He has no problem. He He's enumerated all things. If he so desired, he'll give you a long list of everything and their numbers and how they will change and what will go down and what will go up. What will happen to the stock exchange in the next 1000s of years it will go up or it will go down how many hairs
exist on every hand that has ever existed or live Subhanak out of Glory be to Allah subhanaw taala he has enumerated all things.
so that they may know.
And Allah subhanaw taala then says and he knows all things and He is encompassed all whatever is with them. And he has enumerated all things in number Glory to Allah subhanaw taala This is the end of Surah Elgin a beautiful Surah full of tell sheet and follow
the command to not associate with almost any partners
Surah that glorifies Allah subhanaw taala a surah
makes it imperative upon us to attribute all things to Allah subhanaw taala and to completely absolve ourselves of power or of knowledge or anything of that sort and I
I conclude the surah as soon concluded his the field by saying the angels in the very beginning said in Santa Ana Quran and algebra we have indeed heard an amazing Quran and indeed this is an amazing Quran. Glory to Allah subhanaw taala Zakon Aloha Ilan
