So I want to
proceed until you've been confused with a little follow
up so you know what Imam you know, Habib, you know Shafi
Abdullah, all early Debian woman
Subhanallah and Madonna Elana
Lollywood Hakeem, let me structure for the westerly Emily will determine the salary of Coco Kohli.
I praise along lady and they send prayers and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad, Allah, Allah, Allah himself and his family, righteous companions and all those that follow them with the right guidance, until the day of judgment, glory be to you or law knowledge that we accept that what you have taught us Indeed you are the All Knowing the all wise
to Allah and His words together here today to study the Quran, to increase us in faith in the Quran and implementation of it. And to make it an argument for us and not against us on the Day of Judgment, and to make it an intercessor on our part, on the Day of Judgment in sha Allah, and to allow us to recite it, and ponder over it and to enjoy it.
And to really apply it in our life.
Here in the dunya in sha Allah, so this can benefit us in sha Allah, the brothers and sisters, we search with another Athan today, isn't none we start with surah.
As you'll see, of course, is named as such because
why is it named?
Named after the first word
in the suta, right.
And it is an indication of the topic of the chapters will see as opposed to maybe certain other chapters that are named after maybe something that is mentioned in it, but not necessarily the first word, right? I mean, fourth
is named after and never write
another but it's not the first word, right? Even those can be called surah. Tonight it's called because the whole Jesus starts with that word, but this is called surah.
Okay, because it is the first word and because it is the main topic of the chapter, which is the founding as we'll see
when you're born you're already dismissed
and turned away because they're came to him the blind man interrupting, but what was make you perceive
that perhaps he might be purified? Or be reminded and the remembrance
would benefit him?
My dear brothers and sisters
amazing chapter of the Quran
that maybe we recite so often,
what we don't realize
the great dimension of this chapter.
The lessons to be drawn from
what he found and turned away.
Who did that Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the man who has the most refined character from the Lord
out of anyone that was ever stepped on the face of this earth
I dress with the other sellers,
by whom, by Allah subhanaw taala. It is not for anyone else.
Don't let anyone convince you that this is not referring to
referring to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and will explain insha Allah
tries to refute any misconceptions that may arise from
the idea or from the willingness in certain people to try to argue otherwise, that it is not a reference to government. This is absolutely
part of the proof for that is the fact because part of their argument is well,
and usually Allah addresses Prophet Muhammad wa sallam directly, right, he doesn't speak about in this third person.
Well move forward, move two steps ahead of your notes.
And you will read what will make
you realize that
those are both in the third person.
So, who's this addressing? No one was profit.
But there's a transition from addressing him in the third person in the first two workers to addressing him directly in the third group, and the rest of the verses.
As we mentioned in many of the Quran ik chapters, there is obviously an authentic reason of Revelation, as opposed to authentic reason of Revelation. There are reasons of revelation that are maybe mentioned maybe that you'll find in books that are not necessarily authentic, but obviously, this is an authentic reason of revelation meanings.
There, there is a reason for the revelation of these verses. And this is the fourth famous story, which we will discuss. And this is the famous narration on the report of our mother.
When she mentioned the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam was performing Dawa to some of the most influential
and of the higher upper echelons of the society in
alum was performing
from different narrations from nourish mentioned that he was performing this to several of them and others mentioned only once in a way that they are influential and they are the upper echelons right. They're the leaders of the society, of the people that, you know, everyone else looks up to, because of maybe their wealth, because of their knowledge, because of their status amongst people, right because of the leadership and so on.
is performing Dawa to these people. This is no simple letter you're making to some of the most influential people in the society, not to the
So he's performing
to these leaders.
And speaking to them and it is going back and forth and so on. And during this time, as Lilan approaches Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as different narration was mentioned in some narrations, he says to him, teach me on the Quran that Allah has taught you and so on. In other places, he says, I'll guide me, okay, and so on and so forth. This is a blind man coming and interrupting our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam.
this time, Prophet Muhammad salallahu Salam.
Okay, he was bothered by the fact that the blind man was interrupting him during the time of this very important event. This is no easy event. This is something that is critical
He is coming and he's interrupting him during this time, right? He can come at any other time. Why this time, specifically, right? So
Now we're left he turns away, meaning he continued his Dawa, to these leaders, and he did not answer the call.
He turned away from him he ignored, right.
I mean, he figured he'll talk to him another time.
In order to understand the importance of this issue, my brothers and sisters again, we have to think about the big picture. The big picture is the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
It came down to the leaders.
And his hope is that these leaders will accept Islam,
there's going to be so much as a result of it, that maybe the whole equation will become Muslim, or at least
numbers of people who become Muslim, following these leaders. This is no simple letter, right? These are the most influential, these are the leaders, if only they will accept Islam. Now, this is not the first time
this has happened several times, right. And maybe he's hoping that in sha Allah, they will accept.
This is the only thing that's wanted. It's not self interest. Beware. It's not self interest. God forbid. There's nothing for himself. He never got angry for himself. It was for the, for the beat. That's all he wanted. Right? All he wanted was for people to accept Islam in droves. And in order to understand his concerns, you have to
apply your standard, but apply his standard.
My standard and yours is different than the standard.
My standard than yours. I living my life for the last 20 years. I live to five people.
The standard of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is now
are you about to kill yourself? Because they will not become believers?
Are you about to commit suicide My dear brothers and sisters, because people are not responding to your Dawa.
It's his standard it's not yours, it's not yours. Consider your healer to him.
When you think
is being addressed, are you about to kill yourself because they will not accept this. This is
the zeal of Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah. So he loves nothing more than for anyone except yourself and especially these elders, these upper echelons, if they accept Islam, this will be the greatest victory for Islam.
This is how you have to understand the scenario. Now you understand his his the blind men coming at this time.
And again, according to many of the narrations, and this is
the most correct.
The blind man in this situation is already a Muslim.
So he's already a Muslim, he can come at another time.
But he is interrupting this very important event and these are believers, you see, when you think about all of these concerns, right, all these factors,
then, you see how the reaction of probable cause is very much understandable, right, considering his Neil, considering the fact that these are disbelievers, and he is already a Muslim and a believer, he can come to Him at any other time and so on and so forth. Right.
As we said,
and turn away.
you will find in many of the narrations, that because of that, because Allah subhanaw taala is admonishing him in these verses that he used to say when he used to see this blind man later in his life, he would say
to the person for whom Allah, Allah Allah has admonished me and so on. However, this narration is not authentic.
So we cannot claim the Prophet Moussa Salam used to say this to Him.
This Allah admonished him concerning the issue of this white man Absolutely. But that he used to say that this is not authentic
what he found them turned away from the blind man who is this blind man
Maktoum there is no difference of opinion. Allahu Allah, the blind man, for whom these verses were revealed is
my username of Allah Mattoon, there's some difference about it. Okay. The people of Medina, Medina in this column, Abdullah Abdullah says in case
ultimately is what he is
Looking for his mother. Right? And that seems to be a reference to the fact that she gives birth to him lines already like that he was already blank. So she is
and they attribute him
to his mother.
But his full name is
the rest of his lineage according to
His name is not Abdullah.
This one is a relative of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam for all practical purposes. Why? Because he is the cousin of Khadija probably Allah.
His cousin, direct cousin,
the son of her maternal uncle,
her maternal uncle,
okay, of Canada. So he's, he's a close person. And this may be another factor to talk about these and talking to strangers and talking to this believer, you are already a Muslim, and you are close to me. At any time, you can come to me and we can talk and I can teach you about the plan and guide you and all of these factors you have to keep in mind and you'll understand that profit
may be justified and this was his instinct, right? This is part of the issue at hand. And we've mentioned several times before Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah has the authority to perform he has, especially ethnic has not already come, right if Allah had not already. So,
what is the verdict in that specific issue and something has not been legislated. Then he had the freedom to make it. But after that, as his
right, as his infallible concerning that, Allah azza wa jal will not allow him to perform and
So this man
came to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he was seeking guidance. He wanted guidance. This man, when you when you realize afterwards, that Allah subhanaw taala was admonished for this man, you think to yourself, This must be someone important.
In Maktoum, this week, man, this blind man, that you are looking at someone weak,
he may be weak just because he doesn't have eyes but Allah, Allah has compensation him with vision in his heart that you and I would love to have.
He could not see but his heart to see what his eyes could not. Probably Allah was
one of the greatest companions of Prophet Muhammad salah, this is
very early on, when Muslims are so persecuted and oppressed.
This is someone special.
It is enough, Allah. Allah is monitoring
for this man that shows you the status of this blind man. In fact, he accepted Islam early. He purifies himself. He learned the religion and the Quran. And he was one of the first to make his according to many of the narrations. He was one of the first people to go to Medina, one
of the first people and we know the effects of what's going on Leyland Medina and how many people accepted Islam
and Abdullah who used to teach the people here's a blind man who is going to Medina to teach the people
this is something else why their brothers and sisters
this man is so great. That it is said that he even
trusted him to leave him in Medina and many situations when he left for his different battles. He was leaving
school as the leader in Medina to lead the prayers and so on and he was
one of the Prophet Muhammad along with Bill of Rights as
Come on. Everyone knows right
No, no, no.
The fact that
I have a little bit confused when they used to hear the news this earlier than
what I'm talking about.
No, no, no. They used to hear that a little bit early. And they thought they need to stop eating. Right? To start
elucidate the issue. He said, No, this is the design of denial
before the time of origin, so that he can wake people up for PM, wait for the alarm.
Assume is making the
that is the time when you need to stop getting to the time when you're officially start. So he was one of the
colors of the I'm delighted. And it is said that he died the greatest invest in
in one of the greatest battles of Islam. This was like man, the Battle of the sea and the year 15 injury, the great battles, which literally destroyed and the sound is no
the Persian Empire,
the centennial empire, this great empire that the world is talking about until today.
This is the battle,
the battle of near 15. Right under the leadership of Saudi Arabia, and during the
ascent was martyred in this battle while he was holding the flag on the Muslims, Allah.
scholars say says they they found that difficult to believe. And they said no, he's a blind man. So it cannot be that he
was smarter than this. But this is what is mentioned by many of the scholars of the Southern scholars of Sierra and Paddy, that he was martyred in the Battle of Ardisia while he was holding the flag and as he was blind, so he could
at least let me hold the flag and place me in between
the two different sides. Can you imagine this, my dear brothers and sisters, by Allah, you and I would shiver out of fear if we were standing on the battlefield, hearing the source and the middle of hitting each other right under the the shouting of the jihad. And you and I can see here's a Bloody Sunday and the fire
comes and chops his head off Allah because the current because the Eman beware beware in the future see mu these were the they are not going through it we are going through now in our time
are saying none of they were a different generation things were easier for them beware. Beware my dear brother, my dear sister, to compare what they went through to what we are going through now. This is a different generation. Some of the things that they went through a few alive were living in their time God knows we might be closer than the rights of the hypocrites lessen the rights of the believers when
this is the courage of underline. This is no ordinary man that Allah subhanaw taala is admonishing whom his beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam for Allah.
This is the revolution of Islam.
As long as the most Beloved
the leader of
the seal of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa.
This is the greatest man that has ever lived.
For a week a blind man
can bring about a phenomenon like this.
Nowhere will you find it. What system is the greatest
person in the society as long as Allah
for the week blind man for something that we may consider somewhat justified when you consider all of the factors on the incident, as we have just discussed, when we speak about this issue, from a linguistic perspective, it's maybe better to say that and monitor or reprove Prophet Muhammad was better than using what seems to be the synonyms which is rebuking and censoring and things like that, because those words have a harsh
You're a politician, are you with me?
Rebuke and censor. In other words, I'm a hardcore politician
our work this means to demolish in the right to, to to
criticize the act
in a loving way, in a way that is to bring about a positive
conclusion or consequence, you see the difference. And this is why you'll find in the Arabic and this is very important. The reason I'm concentrating on this is because you're speaking about problems. Now, you used to be very careful how you speak about it, especially concerning these issues, where Allah subhanaw taala may have direct
the behavior probably
very critical, right. The Sahaba used to be afraid after the verses were revealed to even speak up in his presence right.
When when when the verses came out
the careful okay.
The word that is used in all of the Arabic texts in the deficit is
is closer to the meanings I gave you admonished and reproof and so on.
And we said
the other fella
is coming and it is referring to profit margins in the third person, and this could be according to many scholars, so that it can be is it upon, because the last thing
that is representative of the behavior of our beloved comfortable hotels,
the last thing is a temporary
in the behavior.
So, that is referring to it and mentioning it in the person as if it is someone else, this is not unusual.
Right? The usual behavior Prophet Muhammad
Allah azza wa jal is saying this new
the world that the world has ever seen, this trolling is something almost temporary and maybe involuntary that happened for limit in this situation, yet alone as one
when it's warmer, then the transition comes upon masala rica
I'm not finished, I just finished now we're starting
he didn't name him he could have named him. He could have said no.
He could have said anything else. He said.
The blind man came to him.
Why is he being referenced as an AMA?
To clarify that one of the reasons for a loss, admonishing profit or loss, this is a blind man.
He's a blind man. Take care of him.
He cannot see. He is not. Maybe it's not immediately clear what's happening. In this situation, even though other scholars said, Well, he can he doesn't have an excuse. Okay, one of those
that he can hear what's happening, you should not interrupt but in this situation.
Maybe it's not immediately clear, maybe what he's hearing are certain sounds immediately clear what's going on and who's talking to whom, and so on and so forth. Either way, he's a blind man. So the fenders are different. Right? When you're dealing with a blind man, when you're dealing with a crippled woman, when you're dealing with someone who hadn't make up the standards with which you would judge and by which you
is a person are totally different. Take those Sanders into consideration.
the blind man came to him. So this is one of the reasons why
monitoring Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam take it easy upon him, he deserves more attention because he is one as opposed to someone else. So this is another factor from the final.
Right, this is something
that is on his side or
his position and justifies maybe what he has done wrong, they say but
the blind man
as we know,
in Islam, we are not technically supposed to call people buy their handicaps, right? I shouldn't refer to someone who's handicapped, the blind, right? The very short one, the one who cannot speak, and so on and so forth. Islam for him.
So how do we understand this?
How do we answer that?
had they seen themselves after that point?
Because you find when they speak about
different individuals and their judgments upon them, they'll say, hola, hola.
And so on and so forth.
that referring to the minor handicap, as it is just a means of identification, okay?
The problem and what is prohibited is referring to the winner when you are saying it, and you are somehow insulting them.
If you're saying it, and maybe you're mocking at the handicapper, this is prohibited, but when you're just saying, to identify as a way of identification, this is okay. And obviously, this is not only an identification, this is
raising his status, right.
So there's no
the he was the excuse to interrupt Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu early.
Now, it also shows you
the importance of taking care of these weak people. And
this religion, my dear brothers and sisters, of which
there is no parallel, there's no parallel, there's nothing like
this is the ultimate system that is calling on people to look after the week and the rights of the week. And from the very beginning of the life of Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah even before officially receiving the message.
He looked after the week, and he was concerned about the rights of the week, as we know, and he only entered into
this alliance, right, for what in order to look after the rights of the week, and our concern for the week. And
this is a blind man that is coming to you. The Muslim society at large, at large, needs to take care of their weak, whether they are handicapped, whether they are sick, whether they are poor, or needy,
or any other system, because all systems of today's world are only looking after the rich.
They're only looking after the influential and the powerful, but not Islam. Islam has come to take care of the rest of the week, and
no other system because the system is based on piety and Taqwa and how many people in the history of Islam who are seemingly and apparently we were great leaders that people used to follow
because of their knowledge. As we said about Al Hasan, of course, he was a leader, but because of his scholarship and his knowledge, he didn't need people
because he's in the dunya. The
one that stuck in me, he couldn't care less.
They needed him for his scholarship.
So many people in the history of Islam seemingly weak, but Allah subhanaw taala has raised their status. Yes, my dear brothers and sisters, and it is for this purpose that Allah subhanaw
Kahala has revealed one of the amazing as well as uploading Medina is
do not excel from your gathering
those who call on Las pelota Allah
in the morning and afternoon seeking is consonant
in other words, seeking his displeasure.
Why is he telling them not to expose them
was about to expose them?
Because the disbelievers wanted him to expose these types of people. They used to look at the week, they used to say what is this? This is the religion of the week. He wants us to follow you. He wants us to be followers of the slave. He wants us to be followers of Beloved,
and Allah and these people who they used to this day,
found and looked down upon. And these were the friends and companions of Prophet Muhammad wa salam to a large extent, this is his entourage. These are the people you want us to follow, like the people sent to him by
the confines of
this base these are your companions, he wants us to follow the most disgrace.
Islam gives no way
to such standard or consideration. It is the opposite in
the most normal view in the sight of Allah those were playing regardless of whether they are black or white,
or long haired boy or girl young or old. These are worldly considerations.
is allows heavenly considerations The buying considerations, not these considerations, rich or poor lever or Lehmann common people or the influential regardless.
This is what it's talking about. These standards, my dear brothers and sisters coming.
This admonishments coming at the time of Prophet Muhammad, itself is a revolution in societal change.
Something beyond imagination, coming into this system if
revealed now in our world, it's a revolution.
In the world of work, in the world of connections between people, only the powerful are the ones who survive. Only the ones who have money are the ones who survive.
This system needs more.
Well, in our time, it's a revolution.
these are only considerations. Nothing else. It's all about what you own, and who you know.
Islam takes care of the weak and gives them a status that no other worldly system does.
Prophet Muhammad is the one who says in the authentic hadith
bring the weak ones. Bring them three
who's asking for the weak, thinking about the weak bring them to me, let me be there for them.
Allah, this is the status
in nama to follow with the wasa Allah, He makes him the gauge.
When you take care of the week,
then he'll go to victory. So Thomas, you're taking care of the week equals
this is a revolution
taking care of the week right in
the back to take care of the week.
We will be
here he will love to play around and your provision Allah with the provision of when we take care of the week when you look after the week, when
it can only be divine cannot come from a human being.
This is beyond
people's imagination or thinking. This is the way that Islam gives to the west.
And this is why my dear brothers and sisters, as in the narration
On the authority of unhappen, luckily, even though the narration is weak, but this to maybe benefit something from it, and it is weak, because it is on the authority of buffering and happening,
was known for, and at least means that he will not necessarily
give you the chain of narration, one man after another, he needs skipped someone in the middle. And therefore, the narration here is on the fourth.
And this is something about the time of sale.
But he does not see, so he's not a little bit alone. So, therefore, this is where the weakness lies, you understand what I'm saying, as he met him, he meets him and he was sometimes maybe to skip one generation in his Hadith. Therefore, the nourish Allah, Allah was weak, but it's a very famous one, therefore, we'll discuss it. And it's the meaning or the possibility of this happening is indeed very possible. And this is the people came to us. And they were knocking
on his door. And amongst them was
these great people from right.
they came and they sought permission to enter.
And at the same time,
others came and also sought permission to enter. And these are people of the great people from
these people who participated in this great defense of Islamic history,
Allah, Allah was allowing them in people like slaves, and beloved.
And the people who attended, these are the
of Islam. But at the same time, the slaves,
the weak ones, for Haven Bilal, and a mob, right people behind the scenes,
is known to be Roman, or at least live lived amongst the Roman people from different nationalities and
lower classes. And he's allowing them to enter one after another Allah. Of course, these influential leaders,
we're about to go berserk.
You're allowing them in whatever we are supposed to be allowed. Where's the red carpet for our NG, he's allowing the player to enter
first, and so on.
Elsas Yan says Allah has not seen a day like this, that these slaves are being allowed to enter before us while we are here, and we are waiting permission to enter. And he's not even looking at us.
How can he not care this way,
is the effect of other side
effects of the teachings of Islam that taught him to give
dignity to the pious, so the Mujahideen, right? Nobody cares about suppose it influence power, if it is a bit expensive piety
sacrifice for the sake of this religion. And therefore, obviously, it's anger them.
And then Sohail says something which was surprising, even to a lottery.
And then he said to them, I can see the anger in your faces. So I'm gonna sing to his own people, I can see the anger
in your faces. But I tell you be angry at yourself.
Don't be angry, be angry at yourself. They were called to the religion.
And you were also called, and they listened to it. And you took it slowly. And you didn't answer
And he says that, indeed, Allah subhanaw taala has given them this extra and race status because they beat you to the truth that is
And therefore, he said, If you want to be like they are, if you want to rise to their service, you have to do what they have done. You have to participate in the dream that you had, as they have done, and so on and so forth. So that maybe Allah subhanaw taala will then grant you
shahada, and unhappy indeed, this is a nun who is truthful. Again we said the the the narration is weak below
Every possible that this is the way the Western looks,
the weak but the pious and who sacrificed as opposed to the
the rich and the influential
now, Allah Subhana Allah is speaking to Prophet Muhammad wa sallam directly and he says, But what would make you perceive Okay? Well, it can be understood in several different ways. Not necessarily what what would you proceed? Or what would make you proceed? Well,
it can also mean what blame is there upon you. Okay, this is another also possible meaning.
But what would make you perceive Mohammed, perhaps he might be purified?
In other words, when you turn away from this blind man, what am I like?
How do you know that he will not be purified?
Right? How will you know that he will not be purified? Do you have some guarantee that he will not be purified? In other words, you're turning away from him? It's almost as if you feel that he loves me.
How do you know? Maybe indeed, we're so sorry. The the blame issue is not for this one. The blame is for the other one, will not Alec. Right. This is
the other reference here when they break up, meaning what was making the transition mentioned? That is for the other one. Okay. Is that clear? That's for the other one. Because the the issue of blame when I agree,
how do you know? Maybe he will indeed, become purified. You don't know for a fact you don't have a guarantee? You turned away from him as if he will not be
blind man, as you said, Brother
could not see
the the founding of Prophet Muhammad and this is another point for profit.
He could not see the
right. He was a blind man.
And mentioned that Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, God forbid, censured the blindness, or insulted him, or something of that nature? No, never. He just
didn't reply. And the blood man could not see this frowning, it makes it
all the more great
for something that the blind man could not even see.
This is why
from turned away from him, did not answer him. But he also my dear brothers and sisters, it shows you the status of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not the other way around. Be careful. This is the misconception shows you the status of possible
when you come my dear brother, my dear sister.
And you say to me, brother,
why did you do this?
Or why did you say this? Or you could have done this.
Or you could have said this this way.
and things of that nature.
And other people think Why are you criticizing something so small? It's insignificant.
When you're criticizing something that seems insignificant to someone else, it means that person is already
you are coming to perfect
But as someone is so
where are you gonna start?
You're gonna come and you're gonna try to concentrate on that which is a priority. And I mentioned that you will criticize me not because of my highest status because you're gonna criticize me or you shouldn't criticize me more than I should criticize you. But the idea is that
when someone is already fairly perfect,
just want to close that small gap, right?
To think of it in another way, if you're wearing
a white garment
you can see the slightest black spot on it.
split up in some dark garments. A few are full of false anyway. And then there's a black spot, you're not gonna see it, right? Because you're full of false anyway. But on the waist garments if you are like an angel, you'll see this thing
you see the status of profitable
is as long as you're
in the face of someone who cannot see him in the first place.
Hola, hola. Hola familia syndrome
where do you start? What do you consider? What do you what do you fix and rectify?
Just the following his plan? Yes. But you shouldn't
and that he turned away from him.
These are the people's Christ, the
only thing he wanted, he wasn't going.
don't turn away from the planet. Different standards are to be followed.
Facebook says beautiful phrase really. He said
part of what shows you the greatness of this admonishments.
And how difficult it is to implement the thing that
to see how difficult it is to implement this
in the behavior in order to understand the level of difficulty
that is required that Allah is
the most refined person and this is
what shows you how difficult it is, because
or at least if it was something else, it was a little bit easier.
He has already risen
to the highest level in terms of his manners and character. This requires some divine intervention. This is something that is very high. Something very difficult,
requires the intervention of his Lord SubhanAllah.
mini Hindi Hindi purifies Why did you turn away from Him? does this teach us my brothers and sisters? It's me. Do not ever,
think that this person has this land in front of you, is almost impossible.
This personal view ever becomes there's no way this person becomes never thinks that one night.
I told you the story. And you probably saw the person, the brother who accepted Islam. I think it was almost a year and we're a little bit less,
who I used to see almost on a daily basis at work.
And because of work and being preoccupied, I never had the chance to perform with him or to talk to him about Islam. And yet one day Jesus comes and he has reverted to Islam in the easiest way. Allah subhanaw taala
imagine I was working on one of his comics was of his same nationality. Right?
And I've been working on his comics for maybe three or four years
is not accepted. This person
I didn't say a single word.
A lug I did a lot.
To be honest, it's not that I didn't want to talk to him. But I really didn't want
to I probably thought to myself, Oh, he looks like a devoted Christian or
an obstinate Christian. He's probably not going to listen, the other one seemed a little bit more open.
How do you know? It's in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala you'll never know. But
does that mean that I just go up to anyone? No.
No, go after the one that you feel in these will be most likely to accept an embrace Islam. Right. Let's
remind if we realized there was benefits, how do you know if the remainder will benefit or not? Meaning if you feel this on
your worldly analysis, probably, this person will benefit more than the other person, this person is more likely to accept the dollar than the other person. But don't ever say it's impossible or think to yourself, never will this person become
the function, enemies of Islam accepted.
And one of the greatest of them is
they allow us to persecute the Muslims. Consider someone that is oppressing the Muslims today. And then he accepts Islam.
This is slow, easy manner, while you agree.
before he was fighting against,
let me became the sword of Allah.
After fighting from the other side, you never know it's in the hands of Allah Subhan Allah usury.
And there are similar examples in our world today, people that living in Kuwait would never, ever become Muslim look at some of the scholars
and the geniuses of our time, in physics and in chemistry and biology and in astronomy, scholars, scholars, after seeing some of the difference, find the
the scientific method
Subhanallah achieved and they came to Islam after people probably person is so drowned in evolution who number becomes, or this person doesn't believe the existence of Allah and the first place, you're gonna come to this Subhanallah
many of you know chef Yusuf
Estes is a priest. He's an American faith.
And the reason he was in Egypt,
other than for business, is
that he wanted nothing more than to call on us to Christianity. He is practically a Christian missionary, that when he was talking to the person about whom he is going to do business with, he was already doing
as he mentioned in the story he was doing and he says, Do you believe in God? He said, Yes.
He's already done part of his job. We believe in Jesus. Yes, I do.
The specials almost Christian.
Right? It's almost over for him. So he's asking his questions, and he's realizing this person is about to be ready. And then when he asked him
this time arguing and debating,
instead of Jesus Esther's
not prising, this Muslim, this Muslim was the reason for Allah subhanaw taala. To guide
the biggest desires as we know, in the English language.
Similarly, with the many of the even many of the Jews, believe it or not, there are Jews who are becoming Muslim
accepting Islam and converting from a man
in the violinists arms,
one, it has nothing to do with the virus.
showing you that what you consider impossible is nothing impossible for Allah, Allah, Allah Allah.
you know, the priests of today or the rabbis and so on and so forth. So many of them have not accepted Islam
right, drowning in misguidance,
then suddenly something
the darkness is into
one of the people who was involved in destroying the Babri mosque, he was involved in the destruction.
He was the leader.
And he came to Islam and Holika Laurie to Allah.
May Allah help us in, in the downline calling people to Allah Subhana Allah and give us that courage? One night you drink
But what would make you perceive Muhammad that perhaps you might be purified or be reminded?
And the remembrance would benefit him?
Here he's mentioning two different things.
The first one is mentioning what purification one
or the other possibility
or be reminded and the remembrance will benefit him, how do we understand the difference between
purification and remembrance two possibilities
first he mentioned then he mentioned
it may be some scholars have said
the issue of
like we mentioned before
meaning, you have to clean out something which is impure before you go in insert something pure, you have to clean your heart of sin of diseases before purifying it, you have to remove the dirty water from the glass before you put the clean one right.
me purification from
then it is this I
have a spaceman this
maybe that He will purify himself. Right? And this is a great benefit. And after that we have
an after purify, remembering and going forward in guidance and moving forward in obedience to Allah soprano. What's the other possibility
is greater than remember,
this is a high level of spirituality. But not only purification of another possibility, but a high level of spirituality when you achieve
something very high. So he's mentioning the higher
before the lower
maybe you're teaching on the
purify his heart in such a way that he will be completely purified. It's like a hook or a lesson that you hear that literally cleanses you. Right? Haven't you heard certain quickness or lessons where you felt transformed? Something that affected you? Right? To the degree when is
the last one or maybe a win? Remember, it will give him some remembrance in his heart. And this remembrance was later on.
Later on, it was benefited. You see what I'm saying? In other words,
maybe he didn't he wasn't affected that much. But he remembered someone and later on that remembers really benefited him. Is that clear? Later on, the effect came later on not immediately, the effect came later on and it's really improved
as a reminder
and so on
and will conclude in shallow these verses as for he who thinks himself without needs.
To him you give attention and not upon you is any blame, if he will not be purified
be stuck now.
Having no need.
Many of the scholars have said
to me seven meaning
that because of their wealth. And because of their money. They felt that they are in no need of what they are being called to right because of their wealth.
But that does not in any way
refutes or contradicts what seems to be a more plausible meaning which has a certain meaning considering themselves without your knowledge of your religion altogether. Right. The people who turned away the disbelievers were turned away and refuse to accept the
oil for many people that you make the hour to today
No, I don't need religion in my life. Really?
No, I'm perfectly fine without religion. I have my own spirituality. How often do you hear that? I have my own spiritual, I go out to the beach, I look at the ocean. I just feel connected.
But what are you worshiping? Right? What are you worshiping when you feel connected to God?
So do I also feel connected? But what follows? Right?
I don't need religion.
I don't believe in heaven and hellfire and all the stuff that you're talking about, and so on and so forth.
They are not in need. And this is part of why they refuse the call
to Islam, because of their arrogance, right. And because of their money, and because of their status, they thought, from the name judgment, they will also be higher status as they were here. Because of the their wealth and because of their children and because of their people around them.
None of this will help them on the Day of Judgment, no children or wealth or status know what the world wants. I swear to God, I swear to you, there is no one
who you know doesn't.
It makes no difference from the Day of Judgment.
This is showing us and we'll go into a lot more detail about this the next time this is very important point.
We said one of the reasons Allah azza wa jal is monitoring Prophet Muhammad Salim is because the man was blind
is poor, you should have treated him differently because of his status because of his handicap. This is the other reason
were concerned about the disbelievers
they have put the religion behind their backs, they have refused your call, you are putting and giving importance to people who have refused in the first day. Now we know that this is because of his
because of his zeal and his love for them to become Muslim, and for so many others to become Muslim as a result of that.
So you say
the one who has refused your door in the first place who has turned their back to the Quran, you're typing to them.
This is the person that you are
And they translate the hook,
you give him attention, right? Another possible meaning is that you are basically it's almost as if you are confronting them,
you are confronting them, right?
usually means that when something is coming at you, you stand for it or you stop it, it's almost as if they're going another way and you're trying to stop them, they're moving away from the moving away from behind their back
to these other people, you are giving them attention and you're going after them.
And there's no blame upon you, if you will not be clarified.
because one may say then, well, is it wrong?
To call people who I feel inshallah will become Muslim or will be very influential? Have they become Muslim? No. The problem is these people have already received the call. If someone has not received the call, if they're not received right, then they absolutely deserve it like everyone else. But these people have already received this maybe several times and you're still concerned about them
the answer that was often the history he wants
for good reason. Right as we said
you've already given you've already called them they've refused you didn't the best way possible. They don't want
I can't I can't
I can't put a gun to the head and say become
a new color to
your job. You've been fighting with this person so often He's not responding
those kill yourself. What law
that they do not become Muslim. And this is why an imam mentioned this. In a very important statement, he says, What is?
And this is to clarify this possible misconception, which is, well, can I not go after the ones who I feel will be influential? I'm doing?
maybe his whole congregation?
Is this forbidden by this? No.
This is what we want to understand. It's not the fact that
going after people they felt was influential, it is the fact
that they have already been called, and they refuse. And in addition, here's someone who is coming.
Who wants the religion? Who wants Islam, who wants to be purified, and you're turning away from him? You see,
you're going after the one who was refused. And you're ignoring the ones with come to you specifically for guidance. This is the problem. So this is why he says, what is prohibited, in fact, is not
what is prohibited, in fact, is turning away from the one who is coming from the one who has become Muslim and is seeking guidance, even if he's a Muslim, and he's seeking more guidance.
Turning away from that person is what is prohibited from not
giving some attention
to someone else who is not become Muslim, because of your desire that they becomes. Is this clear?
It's a delicate point, because a lot of people may understand that well
is going up to these people because they are influential don't look at it that way. The brother says Are
these people because they are very influential inshallah the
contribution to this, this is great no problem unless they have clearly refused and maybe several times and at the same time, it is causing you to ignore me and those who are coming after you and those who wants guidance
giving extra attention to the one who has
reneged right and turned away and ignoring the ones who has come at you this is the problem and this is what is
further evidence to corroborate this point is the fact that prophets will
love to guide the influential and he used to make the
or rather bring about the glory of this religion by God didn't want
right so he wasn't and he saw that if one of these
if one of these people become Muslim, it's gonna change
it's gonna change the situation of Islam as they know it and indeed in
the the South
is a milestone in Islamic history and the Companions say that indeed we were in a state of glory and strength from the time that
Islam Allah Right. So there's nothing wrong in going up to the influential doors make it a reason to ignore those who are
running towards us, those who wants to know about Islam or are already looking at your knowledge and need your help and so on and so forth. The other example or piece of evidence is the fact that
as we know in
the era in Medina, okay, and these verses as we said, the whole chapter is a
chapter as is of the very early chapters, the king right, as we see.
But at the end of the era of Medina, verses way after this, right, so no one can say no, that was before launch was after, after learning all the lessons of the end of
this one. He sent letters,
emails, letters, they didn't have email, but he sent
but nowadays you can send emails, send an email to this President and that and this was the year and that
he sent letters to the leaders of the great empires of the time.
Kisara and Haifa Dashi,
The leader of Rome and the leader of Persia, the leader of others,
he's sending letters
hoping to guide these leaders why human
you will have the peace and security of Islam. In the end
you will have, you will incur the sins of refusing Islam, and you will incur the sins of Nova you
because you refuse Islam, and therefore you're also a reason for misspelling those underneath. So, I was hoping this leader because everyone
becomes Muslim, right?
is aware of this fact. So people will after their influential, it may be indeed required, but with certain conditions that are delineated by the sewer below. And we'll continue this in sha Allah will discuss this topic a little bit more because it requires a little bit more
elaboration inshallah next time.
when it comes to that, because
I'm trying to draw the lessons specific to the verses, then at the end of those verses, we're gonna go through the general lessons from all the verses are
very important, but the concept of Allah
is revealing for this week blind man
and he's acknowledging for caring
for them, they would have loved
they would have loved
that is the opposite. Oh, look, he's concerned about
us because we're important to him. And so the Quran is saying
we don't care about them. We don't mean look at the weak man
is a severe, arrogant, right to their ego.
It's a severe blow to everything that they are accustomed to people raising their status and saying You are the best and you are the leaders in our community. And I know Khurana Lee.
They have turned away
they need Islam. Islam doesn't mean absolutely.
At the same time,
same time all of the actions and degrees of Allah Tala are full of wisdom. So there's great wisdom in the fact that Allah azza wa jal is raising the status of the love and
wisdom and the fact that Allah azza wa jal is destroying the arrogance of the upper echelons of society at the same time showing the strength of Islam
many things to lose.
he is, is perfect Kamala, but this was a she had and we saw when we discussed the details how justified he was in his he has and in the end isn't an insult me didn't know that he just turned him away. He didn't immediately respond to his call, because anytime he later on, he loved him and he hugged me
him and he kissed him and he fought him and even everything, but just this time, right? And we send it in these colors, let's see what
he can hear they're talking, he can hear that he's busy in the dollar was interrupting him. Right? That shows you that Allah, Allah is only as monitoring for a great wisdom. Some of what we discuss is of the wisdom, apart from the fact that
the character of Prophet Muhammad was 99.9 He wants to make it 100%. Right. So he's just saying, what you should have done in this situation and what
performance he has and his he has, he has justification for a loss pelota Allah is telling him that there could have been a slightly better
way to go about this. And we said, My dear brothers and sisters, when we discuss,
we discuss this issue in detail but this law of monitoring isn't Beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, it is out of the love of Allah, Allah for His Prophet, sal and otherwise, it shows you also the magnificence of Allah.
When you see that, even the prophet from the mall
completely perfect. Right? In other words, we're never direct
His Prophet, peace be upon them all. You may start to put the Prophet peace upon them all at the level of
right. They were
when you see a lover speaking to one of these prophets and advising them, it
fills your heart with the magnificence of Allah. And the status of this prophet in the face of Allah
to Allah is my son, he's on my family
can feel the pain that his calling
about his son? And he says,
Listen, is not as your family
can you imagine this? Did you ever deliberate over those?
Let me let me read them for you.
For his son.
Allah subhanaw taala replied to him.
He's not of your family. He is one who's worked with other than righteous. So ask me not for that about which you have no knowledge is talking to his Prophet sallallahu wasallam is talking to somebody saying, don't ask me about something you do have knowledge about. Indeed, I advise you to be among the ignorant, Allah,
the magnificence of Allah subhanaw taala. is admonishing one of his prophets. Peace be upon them as a prophet
who is infallible. With regards to the Dawa
is being directed by ALLAH SubhanA admonished for something
that warrants seeking forgiveness of Allah.
I say, Allah is admonishing one of his Prophet, peace be upon them for something that warrants
seeking forgiveness of Allah. Why? Because after what
My Lord, I seek refuge in You from asking that.
Responding in this way, and unless you forgive me and have mercy upon me, I will be among the losers.
You see the submission of the Prophet, it's a role model, right?
We learn from
sins have been forgiven in the future.
And he is seeking the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala where you and me
brothers and sisters, the wisdom of Allah
ponder and deliberate maybe do is
See some of these lessons. But first off,
people are saying No, Allah has not admonished me in this prophet
clearly against the Quran
take it the right way and see the wisdom
and see that it is raising the son of a republic
the prophet speaks upon the Mueller human beings
say I am a human like you as a human
with the perfection of Allah, Allah Who says there's a difference
even though they have the most refined character of human beings that ever lived on the face of the earth, and they are infallible with regards to
Allah does not allow him to make any slight mistake in the correcting them as we see
this issue we discussed in some detail as we can sort of go back to it a few more of an
