Allah Subhana Allah says in surah Dillon son,

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

manual of him

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

as they're not come upon men,

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

a period of time when he was not a thing even mentioned.

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

Of course, when the translation mentioned man, technically it is a reference to the human being male or female. And this is the definition of insanity in the Arabic language

00:00:39 --> 00:00:46

in this surah Insan is also named by some sort.

00:00:47 --> 00:00:55

Okay, because I mentioned and is all time, okay, it means all time and this is why Puppet

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


00:00:58 --> 00:01:00

Don't insult

00:01:01 --> 00:01:21

time, because some people will insult time. Okay, time in the sense, they will insult this day, or this week or this month. Or, you know, God forbid, I don't want to say it but they will insult let's say, the time that I met you or the time that I married you or the time that I

00:01:22 --> 00:01:47

went out with you, you know, something happened to you when you were going out with your friends and you said, man, Allah curse the time that I went out with you because this happened to me. This is all forbidden, because it is all decreased by Allah subhanaw taala it has nothing to do with the time, time has nothing to do with it. Allah decreed it whether today whether to tomorrow or after a few weeks, or after a few years. It doesn't matter.

00:01:52 --> 00:01:53

Them your country on the Quran

00:01:56 --> 00:01:56


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

The Surah of the human being

00:02:03 --> 00:02:05

is mucky, or mezzanine.

00:02:06 --> 00:02:36

If you read the scenes, you will be utterly confused because there is a lot of scholarly difference. Is it matki? Or is it metal. And you may read also of the scholarly difference that some are saying that the majority said it is muskie and others said the majority says it is okay. So even there's some difference of opinion about who the majority is the amount of co2

00:02:38 --> 00:02:44

is saying that the majority said that they are emitted, but many of the other colors and even

00:02:46 --> 00:02:52

the majority said that they are mixing of colors who said that it is a Mickey pseudo

00:02:53 --> 00:03:12

art and of the later scholars who and many others also who such as luxury and other who mentioned that it is a maxi surah Allah Allah Allah, this seems to be the most accurate opinion that the chapter is

00:03:13 --> 00:03:29

based on the ideas and the themes, as you will see, as we discussed, which mostly pertain to the themes and concepts that are usually delineated in the napkin chapters.

00:03:32 --> 00:03:36

And other scholars said it is both that it is murky, but a few verses are many

00:03:37 --> 00:03:39

other such opinions and

00:03:40 --> 00:03:44

possibly one of the reasons that some

00:03:45 --> 00:03:53

of the scholars said it is a Madani chapter is because of a hadith that is mentioned

00:03:55 --> 00:03:59

Hasan once the same may Allah be pleased with them got sick

00:04:04 --> 00:04:05

after getting sick,

00:04:06 --> 00:04:10

and Prophet Muhammad wa salam has visited them and so on that

00:04:13 --> 00:04:22

and see the Fatima may Allah be pleased with them both. The servant decided to fast for three days of Allah azza wa jal cure that Hudsonville Hussein

00:04:23 --> 00:04:27

and after that they were cured of their sickness and they started fasting

00:04:31 --> 00:04:34

when they came to have the fob

00:04:36 --> 00:04:36


00:04:38 --> 00:04:40

poor person had come

00:04:41 --> 00:04:42

begging for food.

00:04:43 --> 00:04:48

And they gave him all of their food as the narration mentioned.

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

Then the next day, the two three days they're fasting again. And the narration mentions that they basically slept and they

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

remained hungry, they hadn't eaten, they didn't have any foods. So they gave everything they had. Second day, the same thing happened when they came to have the type of a an orphan came

00:05:11 --> 00:05:17

similarly begging for food and they gave him the food 30 days the same thing happened, but it was a prisoner

00:05:20 --> 00:05:23

as a prisoner, usually possibly a prisoner of war.

00:05:24 --> 00:06:03

And this is why they claim that this method, because if there's a thief, prisoner of war, who came and begging for food, then there must have been a war and Jihad only happened in the madonie period. And they gave him all of their foods and that for this Allah azza wa jal revealed the eiopa A Munna Bahama Allah should be his skin and were team and a serum that they will feed. Even though they love that food, they are in need of it, that they will feed them a skin and an orphan and a prisoner of war. But this hadith Allah Allah is we

00:06:04 --> 00:06:14

cannot be relied on. But it is mentioned and you may read it. And maybe for that reason, they claim that the surah is motherly, or at least that way,

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

is a mezzanine verse, but it seems

00:06:19 --> 00:06:22

as we said, the hadith is weak and cannot be relied on.

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

And of course, say the fourth and fifth

00:06:27 --> 00:06:37

are perfectly capable and more of doing such virtuous acts and more. The hadith is weak so we cannot accept it as as reliable.

00:06:39 --> 00:06:42

And therefore Allah Allah, it seems that the whole chapter

00:06:44 --> 00:06:46

is a second chapter

00:06:49 --> 00:06:53

when he says, In Santa fino minute, how much time do we have?

00:06:54 --> 00:06:55


00:06:58 --> 00:07:02

Is it 23? An hour or before that? 20? I think no.

00:07:03 --> 00:07:05

20? Right. So brought about seven minutes.

00:07:13 --> 00:07:18

It is a phrase which is in the form of a question. It's an inquiry.

00:07:20 --> 00:07:36

However, Allah subhanaw taala doesn't inquire he knows all. But when he phrases the sentence, in terms of what seems to be a question, it means he wants to divert our attention to something important.

00:07:38 --> 00:07:44

Okay, the way that it was translated in our translation, Has there not come upon?

00:07:45 --> 00:07:48

Okay, even though there's no not here, technically.

00:07:50 --> 00:07:55

But you will find similar inquiries in the Quran where indeed there is no

00:07:56 --> 00:07:58

such as when he says LM ni, ni,

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

LM yet.

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


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

this is not time. Okay. But here

00:08:10 --> 00:08:17

has come a time, technically. Okay. But the meaning they're taking the what the verse

00:08:19 --> 00:08:35

actually is supposed to me and that would be Has there not come a time okay. Otherwise it will be a question Has there if we remove the knot becomes has there come upon the human a period of time when he was not a thing even mentioned?

00:08:36 --> 00:08:38

It becomes a total question.

00:08:39 --> 00:08:41

And in the Arabic language.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:56

This is how it seems, once you an Arabic speaker will immediately realize that it is more of not just a question, but it is a question to prove something. It is similar to when I asked you

00:08:58 --> 00:09:02

did I not give you brother this and this and this, then comes the money?

00:09:03 --> 00:09:05

Or if I had just

00:09:06 --> 00:09:11

a few just given your child, let's say some money, and you sell them? Did I give you some money?

00:09:13 --> 00:09:20

You're not asking them? You're asking them? And the answers obvious because you want to get to a point which is I'm not gonna give you again.

00:09:21 --> 00:09:27

Did I give you money? And then you're gonna say what or not right?

00:09:28 --> 00:09:45

So in other words, and he'll say yes, Father, you and you have given me money just recently. You said therefore I'm not gonna give you anything else. Or I've already given you your allowance, right and things of that nature. Similarly here, he's saying has come upon the human a period of time when he was not the thing even mentioned.

00:09:47 --> 00:09:49

clear and obvious answer.

00:09:50 --> 00:09:57

Yes, there came upon a time upon the human being a time when he was not a thing even mentioned.

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

And this is how many of you

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

Have they

00:10:01 --> 00:10:15

understood it to me? He is guiding him to the answer. Yes, the obvious answer. Yes, there is. Therefore, Allah subhanaw taala then speaks about the creation of the human being

00:10:18 --> 00:10:19

in sun

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


00:10:23 --> 00:10:25

it's interesting that it came as

00:10:28 --> 00:10:53

maybe a Muslim is reading this in the it'll immediately see what is meant by it because he knows that Allah, Allah in the Quran is going to answer are just going to ask a question like this. So he immediately realizes that it is a question, a guiding question. Okay, a question that is meant to bring an answer like a rhetorical question.

00:10:55 --> 00:10:57

But the non Muslim will read it.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:11

who's reading the Quran? Who doesn't believe that this has come from Allah? Who doesn't know the author of this book like that Nan was the was reading the Quran, and was wondering who's the author and it just they couldn't find by?

00:11:12 --> 00:11:27

Right. And he's reading it, he'll take it as a real question, a question that causes him to ponder has come upon the human being a period of time when he was not the thing mentioned. He will say to himself, yeah,

00:11:28 --> 00:11:47

in the Halacha incident, and then he continues to read. Okay, so maybe something that raises a non Muslims, eyebrows, but the Muslim will understand it to me, Allah subhanaw taala is guiding us to something he's not asking us, because this is the these are the words of Allah subhanaw taala, who is the human being?

00:11:50 --> 00:12:05

Who is the human being? Two possible opinions? One, opinion, and this is the opinion of many of the earliest scholars, that this is a reference to the first human being and this is Adam Ali's

00:12:09 --> 00:12:31

have not come upon a time when Adam himself the first human being was not a thing mentioned. This is a very beautiful meaning. Why? Because it means that there was a time when there were no humans on the face of the earth. As I was loved, there was not a thing mentioned it means human beings

00:12:33 --> 00:12:34

were not anything mentioned.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:49

We talk about the human beings ruling the earth and walking on the earth and being in charge of things and corrupting the earth and others who are trying to fix the situation.

00:12:50 --> 00:12:51

Before that

00:12:52 --> 00:12:56

there were no human beings were the human beings they didn't exist

00:12:58 --> 00:13:06

there was a time when the human beings came before that. They were nothing mentioned. No me human what exists in

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

the gym.

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

The general creative before the human beings

00:13:16 --> 00:13:17

and maybe before they

00:13:18 --> 00:13:20

were created, also

00:13:22 --> 00:13:26

who knows how long the earth was uninhabited? By Jen

00:13:28 --> 00:13:35

nothing was mentioned. So you yourself you you're not an original part of the earth. You came to it.

00:13:37 --> 00:13:38

So what are you arrogant about?

00:13:40 --> 00:13:43

I think our time is over. So we will continue inshallah next time.

00:13:47 --> 00:13:51

Without one and hamdulillah Hello, Bananaman Salam Ana venum Hamid. On earlier he was suffering
