Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early was Salam is a slave Servant and Messenger.
Glory be to You or Allah no knowledge have we accept that what you have taught us? Indeed you are the All Knowing the all wise brothers if you can come a little bit closer please vertical.
May Allah subhanaw taala open our hearts to the Noble Quran and make an argument for us and not against us on the Day of Judgment and bring us together shallow Prophet Muhammad wa sallam and his family and righteous companions in the highest of paradise as he has brought us together here today. Brothers and sisters we continue Shala with the Surah Al muda
and we left off last
I think we reached the area

show the show
and we have not made the keepers of the fire after mentioning that they are 19 Angels over the fire and we have not made the keepers of the fire except angels. And we have not made their number except as a trial for those who disbelieve that those who are given the Scripture will be convinced and those who have believed will increase in faith and those who are given the Scripture in the believers will not doubt and to the end of the verses will will continue with it inshallah.
We mentioned that Allah subhanaw taala has placed 19 Angels over the Hellfire May Allah subhanaw taala protect you and me from it. Now upon mentioning that
there are 19 Angels over the fire.
It is narrated
they fell out of this home Abuja.
Sky Scott and mocked
19 Angels seems like a strange number, right? It's not a normal number number one, it's not
a multiple of five or 10, right?
It is not even.
I mean some of the numbers between zero and 10 like five or seven you know they're odd numbers but
it's a small number and it can be
You know, swallowed, okay, seven reasons for mentioning seven here and there, but 910
not 20, not 15 or 25 or something of that nature 19. So this caused them to scoff and to mock and this is why Imam Qatar dimensions that upon that happening, Abu Jihad then said that when this I was revealed, he then went to Croatia and said, Oh, alright,
after hearing this and saying, This person amongst you are saying that upon the fire as 19
can't kind of you take care of each one of them. And you are, you know, a large group of people, you are a great mass of people, can't you take care of these people? Can't you beat them?
Can't any 10 of you be able to win over at least one of them, and then
you'll be able to protect yourselves from the fire. This is the way they scoffed. And
we mentioned also before the saying, of the person who thought he was he was actually very strong. But he it caused them to become arrogant. This is the problem. And his name is mentioned as abolition day. Okay, Canada, and color.
It is narrated, but also upon this, he went to the Quraysh he was more arrogant than I will tell. And he said, oh, people of Quraysh just take care of too. And I'll take care of the other 17. And what was mentioned about
his strength, and he that he was so strong,
that he used to stand on a like the, the leather
of a cow, or maybe of something else, he would stand on it and then challenge 10 strong people to try to pull it from under his feet. And it is said that they would not be able to pull it and it would tear apart instead of being pulled from under his feet. This is how strong he was.
One of the scholars
possibly I remember so Haley, the one who
secret evidence hack that he mentioned, that this same calendar event will say is the one that Prophet Muhammad wa sallam challenged to a wrestling match.
And he watched him several times. But Allah Allah Allah and the more correct opinion is that
the one that Prophet Muhammad Salah beat several times is who can be cannot have been easy it also very strong man. And he said that he wouldn't become Muslim a prophet Maha Selim beat him and beat him once and twice, and thrice and he could just not believe any that the Prophet SAW. Selim was that strong, he beat him meaning in a wrestling match. There's no punching just like the wrestling that you see. He basically pinned him to the ground and kinda was not able to move anymore. Think Subhan Allah, that the Prophet Moses Allah or the Muslims will have other companions, or some weak skinny people walking on the earth,
their head down so modest and humble. And at the same time so weak This is completely against
the the Islamic practice and the way they understand Islam. Yes. To be strong in faith and to be strong physically. Can you imagine
being one of the strongest people in courage and pinning him down? Okay? Not like the Muslims have today thinking, Oh, I have to be part of my humanity as I walk, you know, with my face to the floor. And if someone beats me or smacks me, I'll fall to the ground unconscious know, Muslims are strong, physically, also. Strong physically, they took care of themselves, they were able to surprise themselves. It's not like they needed people. Nowadays, people think no part of humanity and zoos and asceticism is being so poor, to the extent that you will need other people also and that you will go and you will ask people for money. This is not this has nothing to do with Islam.
Either way, this is Canada and then Osage. And this is what he said, I'll take care of 17 you just take care of two and this is part of his arrogance.
And because of the fact that he thought that he was strong enough, and therefore he can protect himself, and by the way, and I experienced this firsthand, not only from 14 Centuries ago, one of the brothers who later became Muslim when he told me his story. He said the same thing when he spoke to someone who was telling him about Islam, he said
Look, if God has to punish me, he has to get through to me first, or he has to get through me first. And look at the arrogance. Forget the angels. Now he's saying if God wants to punish me, he has to get over me first out of luck, he became Muslim,
very good Muslim and Hamdulillah. But this is the arrogance that he had before. This is Subhanallah This is
one of the diseases that
people suffer from, and one of the things that dissuade them from coming to Islam.
So there are 19 Angels, Allah subhanaw taala, chose that number and he chooses whatever he pleases. Whatever number he pleases, he does whatever he pleases. No one can say anything, no one can change anything. If Allah subhanaw taala wills that or decrease it, then
it will be so
there is a Hadith that is related in the Sunnah of Imam Tirmidhi, on the authority of Jabba Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with him
that he said,
Mind you this hadith, there's some difference of opinion on it, of the Imams who authenticated it from ancient Islam and Abu Bakr, the famous Maliki scholar, who the man probably mentioned a lot, and of the late scholars who declared that it is weak.
The hadith says that some of the Jews came to the companions of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they said to him, they said to them, does your Prophet know the number of the keepers of the fire? And they said, We don't know. We don't have any information about this until we ask our Prophet. So a man came to the Selim and he said to him, oh, Mohammed, your companions were beaten today they were defeated.
He said, why is that? He said, Because the news came and asked them
if their Prophet knows of the number of the keepers of the fire. And they said, We don't know until we ask our Prophet. So then he says,
astonishingly, Prophet, Muhammad Salim says, are they considered defeated? Because they said, We don't know until we ask our Prophet? In other words, what's wrong with that? is only natural? If we don't know, we're going to ask. And this is, by the way, one of the things that a non Muslim told me one time is that part of the thing, one of the things that we like about you muslim is that when you don't know, you say, I will check or I'm going to ask someone more knowledgeable than me, you don't just speak without knowledge. And this is very important for dollar, by the way. So he says, What's the problem? Basically, I mean, are they considered defeated just because they said, We don't know.
And we are going to ask our Prophet about it.
to the end of the famous Hadith, okay, of course, they came to the Prophet. And the Prophet told them indeed, the number of the keepers of the fire is 19.
And then he asked them about what is the landscape of paradise and so on.
But this is this, this Hadith also, you might read, in some of the seeds, I lay this out.
And then Allah subhanaw taala said, when I have enough, we did not make the keepers of the fire.
Except angels, angels. In other words, this is almost like a reply to Abuja, and to Canada, saved when they thought that they can defeat these angels. Immediately, they're equating themselves with these angels, one to one. So he's saying basically, I can defeat 17 or Bucha, Allah saying, fine, you are weak people, each 10 of you at least take care of one of them.
If they're a strong human being okay, maybe you can make that equation. Allah subhanaw taala is telling them these are not human beings.
These are not like you. These are much more powerful and stronger than you. These are a different creation you don't know about. And we've said many times that the angels are a great creation, right brothers and sisters. They're not something small. They're not like these flying angels that you see in the cartoons or on television, right?
Some kids maybe think so. Maybe some older people think so. Also, all these angels these things that fly with wings, yes, they have wings, as Allah subhanaw taala told us and so that problem, right. But the angels are great creation, something beyond our
or imagination, not these small angels going around flying around. Yes, they have wings, and they can fly. But it's a great creation, that we have no idea about 19 Great Angel. Part of the reason also that maybe confuse them is that Allah subhanaw taala put as the keepers of the fire 19 angels that will take care of punishing all of the people from the time of Adam.
To the end of time 19 Only will do that whole job.
You don't know, these angels, you don't know their strength, you don't know their capabilities. You don't know this creation, this great creation that Allah created when Allah subhanaw taala said the Quran,
Allah gonna show you that when he's speaking about them, a very great and strong and powerful creation, and very hard with the disbelievers May Allah subhanaw taala protect us from them.
So he says we have not made the keepers in the fire except angels. They're not human beings. They are angels of creation that you don't know about. Mr. John does have another Illa melodica
one Mirjana Illa fitna, and we have not made their number,
except as a trial. By the way, when we talk about angels and the greatness of the creation of the angels, this is also the meaning of the verse and swat and
you know, that verse, you know, what were some talking about, or know, the very beginning of circle and
notice what Allah says, he says,
and they say, verse eight, and they say, Why was there not sent down to him and Angel, but if we had sent down an angel, the matter would have been decided, then they would not be reprieve. In other words, the punishment would have come. And if we made him, the messenger and Angel, we would have made him appear as a man. And we would have covered them with that in which they cover themselves.
He's saying, basically, that if we were going to make the messenger an angel, we would have to make him appear as a man why, because you cannot.
not comprehend you, you cannot handle seeing the angel in his real form, in his real angelic form, you can handle it, it's beyond you, you would have to f is going to send a messenger as an angel at me, I have to make him appear as a man. Otherwise, because you cannot handle it, you female human beings. That's why when Prophet Muhammad Salim saw Gibreel in his real form, it was something else. Of course, the form of Islam possibly is different than the rest of the angels, but still, we know they are a great creation, you cannot handle it, you'd have to make him appear as a man, if you were going to see it. And for things to be normal for normalcy, you'd have to see him as a man, you
cannot see them in the real angelic form. So we go about having money in lemonade.
And we have not made the number except as a trial for those who disbelieve in fitness, which is translated here as a trial or with
denotes or connotes
something that is a test Allah subhanaw taala is testing them.
He chose to make them 90. And to Allah subhanaw taala belongs all wisdom, he made the 19 for wisdom you and I maybe cannot understand.
And therefore, this issue has become as a trial and a test for those who disbelieve how, because of this precisely. Number one, it made them arrogant. And they thought Oh,
perfect. We can handle 19 of them. And that way we are protected ourselves from the hellfire. The other possibility is that they are saying basically 19 Why 19 What is this strange number? Why did he choose 19? Why didn't we make them? You know,
you know, finishing off with 20 What is this number? 19 It seems strange. Okay. But indeed it was a fitna for those who Why 19
We cannot understand what is the wisdom behind it. Why did he choose it that way? It was a fitna for those who disbelieve. Then we gave the example of Bucha Helen, Canada.
As a child
For those who disbelieve
that those who are given the Scripture will be convinced.
Okay, again, why did he make them 19
That those who are given the Scripture will be convinced,
And then those who have those who have believed will increase in faith. Let's tackle these two phrases first, that those who are given the Scripture will be convinced. It is the opinion of m&r bas are the Allahumma. And also Muda, and Qatada and others of the Imams of Tafseer of the self, that they said
that Wallahi, this number of 19 keepers of the Hellfire is mentioned in the Torah and in G. There are 19 angels, and that Allah subhanaw taala, therefore, wanted those who have been given the Scripture to have the certainty that indeed this must be from Allah subhanaw taala because the Quran is in agreement with what they have of their scriptures.
And so that those who believe will only increase in faith.
This is the and this is by the way, the opinion that is mentioned by most of the scholars,
that this is something that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned, it's part of the miraculousness of the Quran that we're profiting from advance Allah is telling them about something in their own books that they find and that they agree with wholeheartedly, and that is that the number of the keepers of the fire are 19.
And there are many things that are mentioned in the Quran that Prophet Muhammad Salah may have mentioned, that, obviously is an agreement was something that they did not corrupt or change.
I have not found
this phrase in the Bible.
And as far as my knowledge, many others have not found it. I cannot say no one has hasn't found it, but maybe many others have not comfortable
with my little knowledge
I have not found where in the Bible this is mentioned or in detail.
What does that mean? It means it could be lost. It means it could be part of the Bible or the Torah that they corrupted that they removed.
Right? This is a possibility.
This is what caused
Shitload doody Rahim Allah to go out on a limb with a different opinion, the from them. Most of the facility in that I read for Allahu Allah. He said that he differs with this understanding of the verse. And He gave two reasons. Number one, that this has not been found, where in the Torah or in the engine, it is mentioned that there are 19 keepers of the fire. Number two, he says that there are
more in different situations where prophet Mohamed Salah may have mentioned something already in their scriptures, that this did not cause them necessarily to believe or to increase in certainty, but only to argue that he plagiarized it from them, as they say about a lot of things. And for that, he says the following and I quote
The Holy Prophet Muhammad, upon whom the Allah's peace and blessings knew fully well, that he would be ridiculed as soon as the disbelievers heard that 19 Angels had been appointed overhead. But in spite of this, he presented without the least hesitation and fear publicly before the people what had been revealed to him from Allah,
and did not at all mind the adjusting and mocking by the people.
The pagans of Arabia were unaware of the unique distinction of the prophets. But the followers of the earlier scriptures, were fully aware that the prophets and every age used to convey to the people in tact, whatever they received from God, whether it is pleased or displeased them. So he's saying basically, but at least the people in the book knows the know that the prophets will present the reality regardless of not caring whether people will look at them or not.
On this very basis, it was to be expected of the Jews on the Christians that they will be convinced of the Prophet Muhammad
Strewth for only a prophet could present an apparently strange thing without any hesitation before the people in an environment charged with antagonism and hostility. That's an interesting opinion. Okay, that basically
if it is not the fact that the 19 I mentioned necessarily in detail in the NG that it is the fact that they know that the only one who will go out on a limb and say the truth, without any hesitation with full courage, knowing that people will look at them can only be a prophet, a bonafide messenger from Allah subhanahu wata Hanna.
His saying, however, that one of the reasons is that we have not found it today. The clear response to that is well,
maybe it is part of the
gospel that has been lost, or has been corrupted or changed by them. And it is not
a an inconceivable thing to say that some of the earlier Christian scholars reading the Quran and knowing this verse
and finding the 19 in their own Bible or Torah, chose to erase it. Like they chose to erase many of the verses in their Bibles. But a lot of it has been lost and tampered with unadulterated. And Allah Allah is the most knowledgeable but the saying like we said the Fibonacci numbers and and others is that this was indeed in the Torah, and in the NG mentioning that the keepers of the fire were 19, the same one. And that this would be this would be the meaning that the people who have been given the Scripture so that they can be comme certain real estate in Alladhina, Otto Kitab, because Prophet Muhammad Salah means bringing them something
that is fully in agreement with what they had, and where could he have gotten this piece of information that the keepers of the fire are necessarily 19 It's not something that you you know, you'd be able to find anywhere in their scriptures.
The stapling Alladhina O'Toole, Keaton, where's Dad and Medina and E mana, and so that
the believers would only increase in faith? Why wouldn't the believers now increase in faith? Because again, they see that this is the full truth from Allah subhanaw taala.
Because they know that if it came from Allah subhanaw taala it is 100% of the truth Subhan Allah how
one piece of information is causing so many different reactions, one reality is causing so many different reactions as we see.
It should give them certainty, does that necessarily give them Iman?
Why is that?
So that the believers will only increase in faith. And this is precisely the way a believer accepts the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala anything that comes from Allah, though it may create the greatest doubt in the hearts and the minds of the disbelievers. It will only increase the believer in faith, even if it is something Subhanallah that they cannot quite understand. But they know it is from Allah subhanaw taala without a doubt
is that blind faith?
Blind faith is not praiseworthy, except in one
I'll tell you when it is blind faith, it is blind faith.
When you cannot understand, or you are taking information from a source
that you have not become 100% Certain is the truth.
And you say I'm going to believe whatever this person says, I just met him. I don't know you. I don't know if you're trustworthy, you're smart, you're intelligent. You're well read. You're informed. You lie or you don't lie, I don't know. But I say you know what? Whatever you say.
It is correct. This is blind faith.
when I have lived with you, and I know you perfectly well, and I've been with you everywhere and I've traveled with you and I know your manners and I know the way you think. And someone comes and tells me you know this brother, he did this and this I say No way. I know this brother. He cannot do this is that blind faith? Blind faith.
similarly here, if you have just taken the Quran, you don't know anything about the Quran, you didn't study it, you didn't look into its arguments you didn't search. And you come and say everything in the Quran is true before, you know precisely this from Allah subhanaw taala that might be characterized as blind faith. But after you read the Quran,
you studied it, you looked into its arguments, you went through it 100 times you have seen without a shadow of a doubt, that this is this is a miraculous book, this must be from Allah cannot be from anyone else. And then I come to you with something from the Quran that you don't understand at that point in time. And you say it is from Allah, I believe that this is not blind faith.
The difference will love to Allah, Allah, you've already established for yourself, this is from Allah.
Time and time again. And a verse came to you and you're in doubt about it. And you didn't know, what's the wisdom behind this? Why does Allah say this? And then the answer came to you and it shook you. Allahu Akbar. That's what he meant.
And it caused you more and more faith. Because you rise in faith, you no longer feel, you know that this is from Allah, and then I come to you with something from Allah, it is authentic, but you don't quite understand that you know, it is from Allah, and therefore you will believe in it. This is not blind faith. This is the difference. So here we know.
The Quran is the word of Allah subhanaw taala. Without a shadow of a doubt, the this believers and Maccha they also had this year clean.
They knew this is from Allah, but they were arrogant. And this is why they tried to argue against it. So when we know this, and we have the certainty and then I come to you, and I say, brother, Allah says the keepers of the
Hellfire are 19
I don't know why he said it is 19 I have full faith, in fact increases me in
it increases me in faith because I know that as long as Allah subhanaw taala chose this, and I can't quite understand it and it is from Allah. Allah is Most wise. It is 100% true, it only increases me in faith. And this is part of the importance brothers and sisters of having this faith. Despite the fact of not maybe realizing the wisdom.
You don't always have to have the wisdom. There are many things where you might not know the wisdom.
But you know it is from Allah subhanaw taala you believe if you always
make your faith dependent on understanding the wisdom believe me you will not rise in the levels of faith as you can
hear it is 90 Why 19 Maha my lord Joseph that way
and he is the all wise and he is
that there's no one more truthful than Allah Spano. What are what is better than Medina and Manu Imana this is the way the believers take the words of Allah subhanahu wata, Anna.
I'll get to it. I'm,
I'm with you. I have to say more. I'm not done. I'm going to say more. But when I get to another part of the verse, which is more pertinent
to what will say, I know exactly what you're saying. I'm coming to that point.
Where is that the Lavina Amman Imana this is the way of the believers. Every time they hear they be the disbelievers there, they'll they'll always disbelieve right.
As opposed to the believers it only increases them in faith, even if they don't know the wisdom.
When you're terrible Medina O'Toole kitab. So another reason for making the number of the keepers on the fire 19
That those who were given
the Scripture and the believers will not doubt.
notice the contrast when he spoke about animal kitab. He said, This faith in Allah will kill him. When he spoke about the believers. He said where's that?
This shows you and this is delille This is evidence that having your cane certainty is not necessarily
good going to need to face
the truth the people that who are given the Scripture, yes. Give them your thing.
In the lead know the believers way as
a man as an example Allah subhanaw taala said it's one of the number
Those who disbelieved in the signs of Moses peace be upon him, while Jehovah will be her was phase
He said Subhana wa Tada
and they rejected them while they rejected what the verse the size of Allah, the signs that Prophet Musa Musa al salaam came to them with, while their inner selves were convinced their own.
See, they rejected but they were convinced
in themselves, and there was the phrase the word ustedes was safe and peaceful means they have the same word that's being used here. Why did they do this out of injustice and haughtiness, so see how was the end of the characters? So just because they had certainty and Ukraine does not necessarily mean they will believe that which is praiseworthy is true belief that the believers
displayed after hearing this verse
also, this shows you
acrid of and Sunnah Gemma, which is the belief increases and decreases, right, a layman is done million plus zero amcos has ever had
here, whereas God and Medina Amman Eman their faith increases when they read about this and when they hear about this.
Then he says, Well, I am telling you that when Meanwhile
another interesting verse, while I am, and so that the people of the Scripture will not have now nor the believers, why didn't you join them? Again, he could have joined them,
especially here because in the first one fine, he's saying, You're clean for for the people who have been given this scripture and believe for the believers. But here he say and so that they would not have doubt, those who have been given the Scripture as well as the believers.
He could have said, well, I am terrible. And so that they may not have doubt. But he again, he split them right. He said, and so that
those who have been given the Scripture
and the believers will not have doubt they again mentioned both.
No, it's so that both will not have doubt. But you remember recently Yes.
You don't have?
In other words,
right. In other words, what you're saying is that our lack of doubt is different than their lack of doubt. Exactly.
The wisdom behind this is that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that because lack of doubt of the People of the Scripture is different than the lack of doubt of the believers, the lack of doubt of the believers is something beyond and something that the people in the Scripture will never come to, because the believers are believers. And they've entered the circle of belief. And they are rising in levels of Eman and faith.
There's a difference between the lack of doubt of those who have been given the Scripture but do not believe and those who have been those who do not have doubt but are true believers.
That's why even when you hear some of the knowledgeable scholars of today who are not Muslims, who praise the Quran, and praise Islam, and praise its teachings, but they do not believe brothers and sisters, there's a world of difference between this person and a Muslim scholar, someone who is a believer, if they know all of this, and they still have not believed them, there is a major problem.
No one can praise the Quran as much and as beautifully, maybe as a praise but as we mentioned last time, he remained a disbeliever and Allah threatened him with hellfire, because in the end, he claimed it is magic that Prophet Muhammad Salah was imitating from others
and so that those who are given the Scripture and the believers will not doubt
and those of course, it is this, he already mentioned certainty. So why is he mentioning not doubting again
It could be that he is now speaking about the believers and the people of the Scripture, but the ones who should hear this message, are the true doubters, the true believers, who this believe, they should not have doubt, what
Alladhina who took it over?
those in whose hearts is disease, and the disbelievers will see, what does Allah intend by this as an example? Allah Allah.
those in whose hearts is disease, what is this disease? According to many,
it is hypocrisy.
In most places in the Quran, when he mentioned people in whose heart is disease, this disease is hypocrisy.
If that is the case, the wisdom behind mentioning that is that this idea becomes an iron with a jabs, okay, with miraculousness of future tidings. Because the idea is mentioning the reaction of people, many years later, in whose heart there is a disease called hypocrisy, which appeared in Medina, according to most scholars, only in Medina
and therefore, Allah subhanaw taala is saying long back what the reaction of those people to the verses of Allah will do then in Medina.
And, according to some scholars have seen also,
it may not be a reference to hypocrisy, because it has been revealed in Medina, this is the way they saw it, that this whole chapter is a chapter revealed in Makkah. And therefore, it should be a reference to the people who are disbelieving in the Quran around at the same time.
And that might be a reference to the disease of doubt, in the heart of Alvalade Marilla.
And others like him, like
many of the other disbelievers who also have the same doubt in the novel Quran though at times, it was almost as if they were going to believe in it. This is also a disease, okay? Most of the times yes, was even the heart is a reference to hypocrisy. Some scholars said in this situation, it may not be a reference to hypocrisy, but to this to this disease of doubt. And the other like I said, the first opinion, it may indeed be hypocrisy. And in that case, the idea is mentioning something that is happening in the future and it is part of
they're the same meaning.
When you said that it can't be taboo, now you buy this book, there's no doubt in it, right? It's the same meaning coming from doubt.
Whether you're good or not enough to be him not one caffeine. What will those people who in whose hearts is disease and caffeine Hoon? Say caffeine? Or al Kitab? kofod are not
the people of the book or they confirm or not?
They're not, are they?
Absolutely, they are to the disbelievers. 100% but
in some places in the Quran, Allah differentiates between an Al Kitab and the people who don't have a book the pagans, right. That's why if you go to surah
Allah says give me a Latina CAFO
very good in the medina kefir, evolution again.
But are they also mission Akin? They are
but is differentiating between the people of the book and the people without a book.
Without a book, pure pagans, okay, pure polytheism.
So sometimes he differentiates and when he says kofod In general, it applies to all of it includes that okay, that also in this situation is differentiating why? Because as we said, the estate can and Medina Hutu Kitab, so that the people who scripture may find certainty after hearing about the 19 the pagans will not find the same certainty because they don't have a book. You see the difference? So Allah azza wa jal differentiated between
The reaction of al Qaeda and the reaction of pure Kufa
but in the end, they're all disbelievers. Anybody who is not a Muslim is a disbeliever.
What will those people say? The disbelievers, the pagans, and those in those people whose hearts disease, neither about Allah will
look at the stark difference in their reaction to the same reality between the best believers and the disbelievers. The believers will only increase in faith Allahu Akbar, this is the way of the believer, Allah subhanaw taala Senate in another place, what is
many of them, these verses that are coming down to you from your Lord, it will only increase them in transgression and disbelief.
the believers, it only increases them in belief, right? And let you know
those true believers whom when the verses of Allah recited to them, it increases them in faith. So the believers their reaction is their faith increases Allah subhanaw taala chose them 19 I wonder why I wish I could know, I wonder what is there was the wise that Allah chose them this way. It is the truth from my Lord.
But the disbelievers see, what did Allah mean by this? What is the reason? What is the purpose for him mentioning this man? Allahu Allah.
This is the same type of verse mentioned in surah. Very, very, very important. My dear brothers and sisters, is it wrong to ask about the wisdom
of Allah in legislating something? Or in sending down a certain verse? Is it wrong or not?
It's not wrong. Explaining
is not wrong, but you should understand this because you don't understand
that you should not assume you understand.
If you understand
creation, yes, or no way comparable, you should know who you are.
You try to understand
it comes to when it comes to
Yes, when it comes to
things, we wouldn't want to understand why.
right. The one who was married? Yeah, of course.
I'll tell you what,
everything in Islam, you can ask about its wisdom.
But when you are asking about that wisdom, you are not asking about the wisdom
with a feeling in your heart that if I don't find the wisdom,
I'm not going to believe this is the fear.
This is the problem.
If you're not going to believe or if I don't see the wisdom,
I'm gonna have some doubt and this is the problem. But when you are asking about the wisdom, because you want to know the wisdom, when full certainty in your heart, but if I don't find the wisdom, in doesn't matter, it is fully from Allah, this is the praiseworthy seeking of knowledge.
And this is the difference. And this is the meaning behind this mother rod Allah we have. What is the phrase the phrase is that is willing to say, what does a man can buy this as an example?
Like many Muslims asked this, What did Allah intend why this?
This is the difference. When they were asking this question. They were not asking with the true sincere
intention to find out the wisdom. It was asking, in a way that was mocking it was asking in a way that was arrogant. What does Allah done by this?
What does Allah and can by this verse, it's what does Allah and tell by this is the difference right?
What Why did Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this? This is how some ignorant Muslims May Allah guide us all may ask these questions. Why did Allah say this? Why is it in fact that this and this and this?
No, my dear, my dear sister, if you don't understand and there will be many things we don't understand, we are weak human beings. Some of us are smarter than others, some of us are more knowledgeable than others. When you ask, ask, with full certainty, it is from Allah. And you want to know the wisdom, because that will help you to increase your faith. But if you don't know it is 100% from Allah, and that's why I'm going to Bacara it is more detailed. The detail is about the mosquito. Right.
about Aruba, and the reaction of the believers is Pamela Lena,
the believers, they know it is the truth from the Lord. Why did Allah give the example of a mosquito of Allah Subhan Allah kill this Quran that Allah has sent us a guidance to all of humanity until the end of time, and he's giving the example of a mosquito
Subhanak those who believe they know what is the truth from their Lord, as for those who disbelieve, they will say, neither about Allah. They will say what does Allah and then by this, it's different than the sincere,
inquisitive mind of a Muslim who wants to know the wisdom so that they can increase in faith? And even if they don't find it, I know it is from Allah.
It may be applied to many things in Islam, from a fixed standpoint, such as for instance, and by the way, if you're going to ask why 19 You can ask 100 different things. Why would I do it this way? I do. 99 times. And the last one is Allah.
Why seven times around the Kaaba. Why seven dates in the morning? Why?
Why only four wives why not? Five?
The Women's Day Why not only one?
Right? So many different things. If you want to ask about the number. Why did Allah choose it this way? Why seven doors for
hellfire? Why eight for Paradise? Why not? Nine? Why not? 10 you can go on and on and on my dear brother, my dear sister.
Those who believe no, it is the truth from the Lord. And it only increases them in faith.
When you don't know the wisdom, sometimes it helps you to increase your faith more than when you know the wisdom. Because when you know the wisdom, it's almost like you You kept your faith dependent on that wisdom. But when you don't know the wisdom and you your your heart is fully comfortable and full of faith, that this is from Allah subhanaw taala you feel that? Indeed, yes, I am a believer, because I know this is from Allah subhanaw taala even if I don't know the wisdom, and what am I a human being with limited intellect and Allah subhanaw taala chooses what He wills and
he does whatever he pleases murder Allah, Allah Who Does this answer your question but but Allah will be heard.
What did Allah subhanaw taala intend by this? It's understandable why they disbelieved in the 19 Angels 19 Cavalli kaolin Allah whom and Yasha
Thus does Allah leave astray, whom He wills and guides, whomever he wills
this shows you that everything that happens is by the other philosophy.
Everything is decreed by Allah subhanaw taala known by Allah subhanaw taala from antiquity and decreed by Allah subhanaw taala but you and I don't know what Allah decree so don't busy your female mind.
thinking What did Allah decree for me?
Do your part.
Allah Subhana Allah is not forcing you into anything do you feel that you are being forced to do anything?
With if someone pushed you to, to come to this Masjid?
Did someone force you to come to this Masjid? Did I force you to come to this ship with someone tie your hands and say go to the masjid now?
Or did you come voluntarily,
you are acting
on your own accord. But everything you do is decreed by Allah subhanaw taala you have full faith in this busy yourself with your responsibility
the part that is Allah which is decreeing whatever He wills, that's none of your business. Do your part.
How do you know in the end, what Allah has decreed? Some of the stupid people said, well, if it is decreed by Allah, I will just sit,
I will not get up, I will not move, I will not run after my permission, I will not try to protect myself, I will not do this and that, but how do you know this is what will this is what Allah has decreed for you. If you get up and you go after your provision, and you stop knowledge, and you did this, and this and this, that was part of the creed, and if you sat down and you didn't do anything, then that is what Allah decreed for you. You don't know what Allah has decreed for you. Allah has decreed something, maybe he has decreed for you.
Or me, or someone ignorant, to become taken Islam after 15 years. Maybe it is what Allah has decreed for you. So go and seek knowledge. Maybe you have, that's what Allah has for you, not for you to remain ignorant, or for me to remain ignorant. You see what I'm saying? You don't know what Allah has decreed. Do your part. be preoccupied with what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded you to do? Not what what Allah has decreed for you. There's quite a difference.
Allah azza wa jal leads astray whomever he wills, and He guides whomever He wills. So the reaction of these people, which they reacted with completely voluntarily on their own accord is something that Allah azza wa jal has decreed. So that he will guide a straight whomever he wills, who refused guidance in the first place, and did not go after the way of guidance in the first place. You see what I'm saying? But as insisted, that's why you see in the Quran
I explained it in the past.
In another way also, some of the verses in the Quran show you that you have absolutely nothing to do with anything is all decreed by Allah. He guides he leads astray, it is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala as there are other verses that show you, Allah azza wa jal gave you the either thankful Right? Or ungrateful,
believe as they please and this believe as they please, it's up to them, right. So, you see the two extremes and Allah azza wa jal has given some verses also that show you that this guidance and this guidance is a result of what you are doing for yourself.
Do you want an example or not? Or this is easy?
Am I explaining something that is certainly well understood my own?
Yes, of course.
he will, then he his guides?
No, no, he must.
He must guide but you have to understand that He guides on this guide after you choose voluntarily your path. So it's almost like he helps you to guidance when you seek guidance, Allah azza wa jal will not leave anyone who seeks the truth without helping him to the truth. And vice versa, the one who seeks misguidance and he continues on that path, Allah subhanaw taala will
keep him on that path. That's why I'm saying then that case since you mentioned it, let me mention the I'm telling you about if you go to Soviet Union's
I believe it is solid units.
So that Eunice page
270 Allah says, Indeed those who have believed and done righteous deeds, their Lord will guide them because of their faith, you see,
beautiful, I gave you the two extremes, one that show you are completely in control, one that show Allah is completely in control. And this is showing you that this control is after what you decide. He says in Medina M and
Bhima managing those who do believe and do righteous good deeds, the Lord will guide them he Dyer
will guide them because of their faith. So you put yourself on the path of faith and Allah helped you and guided you clear
and vice versa also,
with respect to
Yes, go ahead.
Let me just give you this i Excuse me, but the other is sort of the opposite of disbelief. Right? Verse 104, page 368
In Melina Lang
Illa. De he will love what
you say, this is the merger of the 2104 base 368.
Indeed, those who do not believe in the verses of Allah so he's talking about what you chose first you did not believe in Allah. Allah will not guide them. You see. So yes, this is guidance and this guidance, yes, whether you are saying
what to do?
And not what Allah has decreed for us. Exactly.
Precise, what I've been asked to do. Yes.
Exactly. And I believe this is this. I believe this is the same
Muhammad or his son Jaffa, Sudan. Busy yourself with what Allah has asked of you, not what he has decreed for you.
Right preoccupy yourself with that.
But it's a secret, Allah, Allah
Gattaca your little Allahu Menya.
So this was a trial and a fitna mentioning that the number of the angels are 90, and Allah azza wa jal
leads astray whoever he was, and he guides whomever he wills, when
they come in who and No, no, the soldiers of your Lord except him, Allahu Akbar, apply this to this very example and to every other example also, according to this same example, if they don't find 19, to be very many, Allah azza wa jal is telling them, You don't know the soldiers, no one knows the soldiers of Allah, but you are thinking
this can apply to many things. Number one, you are under estimating these 19 He is telling you and Allah, no one knows the soldiers of Allah but him. In other words, no one knows the strength of the soldiers of Allah but him, no one knows the reality of these 19 angels, he chose to be the keepers of the fire, but him if you are finding the number to be small, no one knows the numbers of the soldiers of Allah subhanaw taala but him when
you can apply it to this example and you can apply it to every other example. Everything is a soldier
for Allah subhanaw taala when he wants to be So, me, even the inanimate objects, brothers and sisters, are so soldiers of Allah when he chooses salt, water, which is a reason for life is a soldier of destruction for Allah when he causes it to be a flood, with which he drowned the people of New Orleans. Same with wind, air, can you live without air? You cannot live without air. Allah caused him to become a soldier for him with which he destroyed the people of
Sedna, who are the people of hand right when he destroyed them with the wind. The same happened in
Allah destroyed them and
basically allowed the believers to win and the disbelievers to be defeated with this great cold wind that he had sent. No one knows the soldiers of Allah but he will continue in sha Allah after that. I can go on and hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen salam ala Nabina Muhammad
