salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala shuffelin via email mousseline. Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa tabin woman tambien BSN in Isla in with Dini, we're back. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household all his companions May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them all and bless every single one of us. My brothers and sisters yesterday we ended off with this speech about the prohibition of alcohol and we made mention of how as soon as the vs for Helen to monta Hoon, Will you not then quit? Will you not then stop the Sahaba the Allahu immediately said

00:00:49 --> 00:01:33

we have stopped we have stopped so much so that a bottle her at his place where the people who were drinking and he had a large stock of alcohol, he had actually instructed that it be poured out and the streets or the galleys of Medina were actually flowing with this haram product because it was made prohibited by Allah subhanho wa Taala. We start off with verse number 100 of the same Surah Surah two matita a narration made mentioned by Allah Hedy from jabiru Viola when he says when alcohol was prohibited, a Bedouin man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he said, O Messenger, I was a man whose business was buying and selling this alcohol. I was a person who used

00:01:33 --> 00:01:53

to sell I have large stocks of it remaining. Think carefully, I have large stocks of this haram remaining. Now I have a plan. And that plan is let me sell it and I will spend all the money in the path of Allah. I will spend all the money in a good deal. It reminds me of people who've asked me Can we just participate in the lotto? If I will not build a Masjid

00:01:54 --> 00:02:26

Allah forgive us. Lottery is haram. Remember this you cannot participate in haram was the halal intention, the To Do not go together. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala. Bless us, may he protect us? So this man's question, according to him, was legitimate. He says, Look, I have a lot of it. Instead of throwing it away, let me sell it to those who want to buy it and then I will use the money for a good cause. And Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus bhulaiyaa stoneville Fabi for Ebola and Jabba, caca, throttle, Fabio sabi.

00:02:29 --> 00:03:15

O'Neill, Al Bab de la la come tuifly who say that evil and good are not equal, even if it amuses you how ramp into how much the evil is, in terms of comparison to the good. So be conscious of Allah O you who believe in order that you may achieve success. What this means is today on the globe, and the lesson is for us all obviously the reason of Revelation is one, but the lesson is for everyone. You might see a lot of people engaging in evil in the name of goodness, no matter how rampant adultery is open nog, Rafi it remains evil. Even though you may be amused by how many people participate in it, it will remain around people who do haram who consumed interest and usually it

00:03:15 --> 00:03:23

will remain haram even if the whole globe is consuming it. So no matter whether the globe is doing it or not. What's halal and haram is a separate matter.

00:03:24 --> 00:04:05

It's got nothing to do with whether people are doing it. It's got to do with whether Allah has instructed it. And this is why in the same narration the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells the men in Allah to Allah, La Yakubu in a year. Allah is pure, he does not accept anything but that which is pure. So you want to give Allah give that which is good. Give that which is pure. before I proceed to the next verse, let me tell you, if you do have possession of that, which happens to be Haram, but in itself, it's not actually neji sewline natural, it means dirty and impure on its own. If it is swine, alcohol or pork, something of that nature. You can do nothing with it besides throwing it

00:04:05 --> 00:04:42

away. That's the only way out. But if it is, for example, money that you have got in your hand and say for example, you need to offset it because it happens to be usually you've made Toba. The reality is rather than throwing it in the bin, you've got to offset it without any intention of a reward for the charity. rather just to help perhaps a poor Muslim who might be suffering and struggling We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us an understanding the difference between the two is I've got an amount and I intend to be rewarded for the amount that's a charity, but I have an amount. The only reward I want is the fact that I have gotten rid of it. But I don't want to reward

00:04:42 --> 00:04:59

for that charity. I don't score points with it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand the difference between throwing away that which is completely natural and dirty, and getting rid of something which may not be dirty on its own, but the way we perhaps earned it might not have been that grand May Allah forgive us.

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

Number 101 of pseudotumor EDA,

00:05:03 --> 00:05:40

Hadid sunon autonomy v Muslim Imam Ahmed narrated by Allah Allahu anhu He says, when the verses of Hajj were revealed you and I know that Allah has made Hajj, one of the pillars of Islam. There are five pillars of Islam. One of them is hatch, but that hatch is connected to your wealth as well as your person, your physical body as well as your wealth. Some of the pillars are only connected to your physical person. The others are connected to your wealth such as zeca hedges one connected to both of them. But Allah has said you only have to go for Hajj, if you can afford it. You can manage you cannot afford it. You don't have to go one in

00:05:42 --> 00:06:24

Dubai at Manny's taco in a sebelah the verses were reviewed. Indeed, Allah has prescribed or it is upon you to engage in the pilgrimage for the sake of Allah, those who are able and capable to undertake the journey. So a man gets up or a group of men get up one narration makes mention of the name alacra even the habits of the Allahu Allah. He had accepted Islam and he became a very good Muslim. Initially he was not very keen on Islam. And initially he had harmed Islam a little bit but Mashallah he became a Muslim. He asks the Prophet sallallahu Sallam a powerful question, they went for Hajj, right. And he says, I frequently Armenia Rasul Allah. This is far right? Is it every year

00:06:24 --> 00:07:00

or messenger only this time? The prophet SAW Salem was quiet, silent. The reason is, revelation comes revelation makes things clear, stop jumping the gun to ask questions. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam later said, local to Nam Nova. But if I had said yes, it would have been compulsory on everyone who afforded Hajj every year to go and participate in the height. Imagine how many billions would be there this year? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding luck when it is only followed once in a lifetime. So verses were revealed number 101 pseudotumor

00:07:01 --> 00:07:03

Yeah, I you

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

know, lattice, no one

00:07:09 --> 00:07:15

obey the law. So why does one have

00:07:17 --> 00:07:23

to obey the law? Oh, you who believe, do not ask questions that

00:07:24 --> 00:08:04

if they are made clear to you on the spear, they perhaps might be harmful for you. They might be detrimental for you. When the revelation comes down, it will be made clear for you. The revelation came down and made it clear. This verse, actually, there's more than one reason of Revelation. Another reason of revelation made mentioned in some of the books of Ababa, New Zealand such as the book of Allah masucci, Rama to Lai LA, where he says people were asking silly questions to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam because the new revelation used to come to him. So one man came to him and said, What's my father's name? and so on. These are silly questions. You want to ask the messenger

00:08:04 --> 00:08:40

sallallahu Sallam Yes, the answer came, but this verse was revealed that Be careful, you might just get an answer that will shock you. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. And Allah bless. So my brothers and sisters, we move on to Surah Al anon. The sutra named after the cattle, and a lot of it has got to do with food. But I'd like to tell you, a lot of soldiers will Anam you will notice has to do with the stubbornness of the people of courage. They were very stubborn when when the signs came to them. A lot of them rejected and you know when someone does not want to accept the truth, no matter how clear it is, they will find an excuse. They will find an answer. They will give you

00:08:40 --> 00:09:18

something I just don't want to listen to you. It reminds us of a little child. If they don't want to do something no matter how much you trick them, no matter how much you try. They keep on saying I don't want in different ways. May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us grant us a great understanding. So the first is a narration minute mentioned al mustard rock of an Imam Hakeem by now buzzworthy Allah when he says Abu Talib was a strange man Abu Talib was the uncle of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he used to go to the people of Polish, and he used to stop them from harming the Muslims from harming Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam from talking bad about Islam. But guess what? himself he

00:09:18 --> 00:09:30

wasn't a Muslim. himself. He didn't accept the message. So Allah says, Well whom young how, when and why and why he Guna illa fusa whom?

00:09:31 --> 00:10:00

Sharon, verse number 26, of Surah Al anon, Allah says they are the ones who are stopping people from talking bad about or from harming Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam or Islam and they themselves have turned away from him or from the message. Allah says if they only knew they are harming themselves without even knowing amazing what the message is up to this day, you find some of the non Muslims, they respect the Muslims, they might defend the Muslims. They might even defend some of the beliefs of the Muslims but if Allah doesn't

00:10:00 --> 00:10:41

give guidance remember one thing it will not come. May Allah grant us guidance. This is why brothers and sisters, the most powerful tool that is repeated by the Muslims the most more than any other law. Do you know what it is? In a Scirocco study, Guide us to the straight path Have you ever thought of it, it is the most powerful, it is the only draw that you are making in Salatu Fatiha and that sort of In fact, there has to be repeated so many times a day compulsorily for every single believer, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us guidance, we learn a lesson from this beautiful verse and it's reasonable revelation, when we defend let us also be a part of what we are defending.

00:10:41 --> 00:10:44

Alhamdulillah verse number 33 of Sudan.

00:10:45 --> 00:11:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of something again, that was happening to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam added in sunanda Timothy reported by Ali, Vitali rhodiola when he says Abu Jamal and the others, they used to speak a lot about the prophets of Allah Salaam. They knew he was known as a surgical. I mean, he was the honest and trustworthy they knew it. But do you know what they used to say?

00:11:09 --> 00:11:45

He's after money. He's after position. He's after women. He's after status. He is a madman. He is a magician. He is a poet. And voila. He every accusation in the book, they leveled against him. salallahu alayhi wasallam, the innocent, the best of creation. Look at what they said about him. So if people talk about you and I today, calling us after money after women after position after power, Mad Men magician while he thank Allah thank Allah, that he's allowing you to taste a little bit of what he allowed his most beloved to taste. Perhaps he loves you somehow.

00:11:46 --> 00:11:57

You need to have a positive attitude to the statements of people that may be negative. We are meaning they can be nothing negative in the life of a movement. The Hadith says I've been meaningful in

00:11:59 --> 00:12:27

the affairs of a true believer a strange, all of them can only be good. Amazing when goodness happens to him. He's thankful that's good for him. When something bad happens to him, he best sub somebody is good for him. sapan Allah, Allah becomes closer to the person who best suffer so when Allah wants you to get closer to him, he he actually introduces someone into your life by inflicting you with something you might consider negative ne if you're a true believer, it's never negative.

00:12:28 --> 00:13:07

So they began to say statements, they used to hurt Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam his heart. Why was he hurt? He used to say Oh Allah I am the messenger you have placed a responsibility on my shoulder here I am trying to deliver the message. Look at the statements these people are uttering Allah says was number 33 but they're not a llama in hula Zulu Caledonia kulu. We know oh Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that it is hurting you the statements that they are uttering they are hurting you. But Abu Jamal comes to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, you know what he says? He says yeah, Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. He says we do not belie you We know you're a truthful man. But we believe the message you've

00:13:07 --> 00:13:15

come will come on. We know you're a truthful man, but this person you came with is a lie. So Allah says for in

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

vivo neck

00:13:19 --> 00:13:22

avani in a big lie.

00:13:24 --> 00:13:39

Let us inform you all Mohammed. They do not deny you they know you are truthful. But the oppresses the arrogant, those who are wrongdoers, they are denying the verses of Allah out of absolute and total arrogance.

00:13:40 --> 00:14:16

When a man is haughty, proud, arrogant, he knows he's wrong. What does he say? No ways, not me. No ways it wasn't me. I am not me at all. And he makes sure that his name comes out clear, no matter how guilty he is. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us What a beautiful lesson we learn from look at the stubbornness of the people of Porsche. I hope we are not stubborn. When it comes to accepting the truth. My brothers and sisters, no matter where it comes from someone younger than you someone from a different race, different gender, no matter who it is. Someone who works for you, someone perhaps who might be above you, below you in terms of status, no problem. If it is right, it's

00:14:16 --> 00:14:58

right. Then verse number 52. It has a very, very interesting again, everything is interesting here because it is revelation from the heavens. They were these cronies of Quraysh. The rich people, they had a problem. It is reported that a lot of driving habits I made made mention of him earlier before he was a Muslim him and one of his friends had come to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and another narration makes mention of different names. The narration is in Sahih Muslim, soon and unnecessary and reported also by the major hadith of Saudi Arabia possible the lavonne. He says six of the people who were considered poor, some of them former slaves, they used to constantly be around

00:14:58 --> 00:14:59

Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam see

00:15:00 --> 00:15:21

seeking knowledge around him wanting to know things and so on Who are these Omari mersive admitted in a sweat Bella live Nora bajo de la I'm so happy to see Nana Rumi as well as a venomous rhodiola. And some of the narrations make mention of suburban a lot. And some say sad if not because of the love and the narrator of the Hadith himself. So six, seven of these people.

00:15:24 --> 00:16:02

The cronies of Quraysh came to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he said, Look, we don't mind accepting, we want to sit with you. We want to listen, we really want to agree with you. But we've got one major problem. The people will see us sitting with these poor people who are our slaves yesterday today, we must sit in the same group with them listening to you. We want to learn these moments. You know, we want a moment where only the rich and the famous sit around you and that's it. The poor people must not mix with you. We want you to dedicate a totally separate time for us and for us alone, no one else. So Mohammed Salah Salam is listening to the statement, okay, these people are

00:16:02 --> 00:16:20

ready to accept obviously that was something big, they ready to accept, but they've got one little clause. Now if you think of it carefully, perhaps someone might think for a moment that the what I'm gaining here is these people are coming to Islam. But guess what jabril Ali Salam comes to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam would versus clarifying it forever.

00:16:22 --> 00:17:13

While I thought oh, Dena Dena Donna belladati voloshin de una vida do not chase away those people who call out to Allah by morning and evening wanting the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala never ever chased them away, not at all. Verse number 52 of pseudotumor EDA, Allah says, Allah He came in he savvy him in a woman in his Arabic Allah him a Fatah, the home for takuna means Bonnie mean, you are not responsible for their account, they are not responsible for your account. How can you then chase them away? You will be an oppressor if you do so. And Allah subhanho wa Taala continues later on next verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What are their Lika fatten ah ba ba, ba ba ba neiafu

00:17:15 --> 00:17:17

una Eamon de la,

00:17:18 --> 00:17:56

Nina, la some long be Atlanta be shaky. This is how Allah has tested someone with others, for some of them to say how can Allah guide those and not us? Why did Allah guide those people? Why are those people close to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam brothers and sisters do not be embarrassed to fulfill your duty unto Allah. Even when you enter the masjid and you find the poorest of the poor in the first lines, you need to make an effort to get into those first lines, it will still remain an act of merit. Don't think the poor are sitting in the front. So let the rich sit at the back? Not at all. Remember, it's a test for you to think to yourself for a moment that if these people are poor,

00:17:56 --> 00:18:17

and they're sitting here, let me not sit, that is your failure. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us when we go to gentlemen, perhaps the poor might be entering earlier than those who are wealthy for this very reason. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us a deep understanding. So thereafter Allah driving habits according to one of the narrations, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam called

00:18:18 --> 00:18:52

one of the writers. And he said, okay, right, let's see what these people want. And as they were about to write, these verses came down. So instead they wrote these verses. And these cronies were shocked because they thought, we're going to get some time, we're going to get a special place, no special place. I'm sorry, this is Islam. You want to stand in the south of Salah, the rich, the poor, the tall, the short, the black, the white, the green, the pink, everyone in one row SubhanAllah. Everyone in one row. You cannot say I have five rounds more, I'm going to stand one step ahead. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. May He grant his humbleness and humility. May He

00:18:52 --> 00:18:59

make us love one another for his sake. I mean, listen to the last part of revelation in this regard. Who are these people? The poor?

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

The next verse, Allah says, Elijah, I can levena you mean Oh Nabila. Yeah Tina, O Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam when these believe is in our verses come to you for call. We want you to say to them, Salah manana come greet them with Peace be upon you. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to say All praise is due to Allah, Who created from my oma a group of people whom he instructed me to start off by greeting them.

00:19:37 --> 00:19:59

So it's reported when he used to see these poor people. He used to go out of his way to say Salaam Alaikum because he knew Allah instructed me give these people more importance Allah look at how the bad belief of the people of Croatia was turned totally upside down by Islam. You want to take it you don't want it this the door. That's what Islam says. Allahu Akbar. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us what

00:20:00 --> 00:20:45

To sing this beautiful fake Islam, it isn't a faith that has abolished racism. Sadly we find it rearing its ugly head in our hearts to this day. My brothers and sisters, one of the greatest acts of worship is to chop the racism that might be rearing its head in your hearts. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. May He grant us a powerful lesson by this beautiful verse. Then we have another verse, the explanation of which is made mention of in the Sierra tabari integration of a crema. He says, there was a man known as musella al Qaeda, he was a liar. He used to claim he was a prophet. And he claimed that revelation came to him and he claimed that verses came to him and he had these

00:20:45 --> 00:20:48

famous verses where he used to come up you know, when

00:20:49 --> 00:21:27

the Imam this evening griddle Korea to melt Aria, so this man comes up with his own vis, he says Lv Lu malfi Lu, ama draka malfi Lu, he says an elephant an elephant, what do you know about an elephant? It has a very long nose and it has a trunk and so on. And he came up with some weird verses and he says, This is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, similarly, there was another man no one has Abdullah hypnotized, if not be sir. He used to write the verses of the Quran and change. And when he was told, why are you changing? He said, Well, it's something similar. I know it's, it sounds good, this is better and so on. So Allah revealed verses and Allah subhanho wa Taala, this

00:21:27 --> 00:21:32

verse number 93 of solitude and an omen of lamb omim man if

00:21:33 --> 00:21:43

he can be bad, who can they be more oppressive than the one who has introduced a lie against the law? You know, people tell lies, lies is very bad. And

00:21:45 --> 00:22:17

a true believer does not lie, but to lie against Allah is worse than lying about me or you or someone else. That is something dangerous, so much so the worst lies ever the lie against Allah and His Messenger, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, manca Allah yamata ammidon failure toboa Matata? homina whoever has lied against me intentionally, they can kill you this spots in Hellfire, it's already there reserved. May Allah forgive us never tell a lie. Never tell a lie against the line His Messenger. So Allah says Who is there more oppressive than the one who lies against Allah?

00:22:20 --> 00:22:30

Allah, Allah, Allah Moo Ha ha, or the one who says revelation came to me and no revelation came to him was a llama la casa

00:22:36 --> 00:23:09

de la la. Oh similar to the one who said, I will come with revelation close to that which Allah has brought or similar to Allah revelation. Abdullah hypno Sadiq Nabi Sir, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from falsehood. Remember the Quran is powerful, let us learn it understand it put it into practice, it will lead us to the Sunnah of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and we will become true believers. I mean, brothers and sisters, the next verse first number 94 also the Sierra tabari also a crema Rahmatullah Allah.

00:23:11 --> 00:23:34

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam time there was a man known as another epinal. Harry, he was a man from polish. He used to say, you know, they didn't believe in the hereafter. But somehow they knew, you know, I've spoken to atheists. I remember one very clearly, he tells me you know what, you people are very bad. I said, Why? He's an atheist. He doesn't believe in anything. He says, because you believe we're going to hellfire.

00:23:35 --> 00:23:39

I said, But hang on. It doesn't make sense because you don't believe in hellfire. So why are you worried?

00:23:40 --> 00:24:15

It shows that there is a worry. When they become old, they don't really know where they are going. Honestly speaking, they have a big doubt in their minds that doubt is never cleared, never ever cleared. Because they know I'm going Where will I go? No one has come back to tell me where they've been. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us an understanding. So this man not only been ill harried, he used to say, look, I am worshipping a lot and the loser. Those are little Gods besides Allah, which they had idols. So you know what he said? He said, I know on the Day of Judgment, they will come these two things, these two gods and they will intercede on my behalf.

00:24:17 --> 00:24:52

Look at how he is. It's like how people worship other people today, and they say these will intercede on our behalf. Same thing. People worship stones and sticks and tombs and so on, and they say these will intercede on our behalf. Let's listen to what Allah says. Go and read the verse back at home. If you would like to learn a lesson from it, verse number 94 of Surat Al anon. It is a powerful verse. Allah speaks of when he resurrects the people, what will he tell them? While according to Muna Fulani, foto dakka masala, Kona

00:24:53 --> 00:24:59

Amara, and indeed when you have come to us singularly just like when we created you for the first time

00:25:00 --> 00:25:07

You were alone one all alone, when you come to us, you will be absolutely alone.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:11

What are

00:25:17 --> 00:25:40

all the company we gave you, you left it behind you, your parents, your children, your brothers, your sisters, your wealth and everything else left behind Who is here? Just you in front of us. This is Allah describing our condition on the Day of Judgment. In fact, in this verse, the condition of those who used to worship Gods besides Allah, Allah says, Look, you've come to us alone. Do you know what he says?

00:25:41 --> 00:25:44

Oh man, ah man come choose.

00:25:50 --> 00:25:56

Fi comm shaka laka taka babina calm while

00:26:05 --> 00:26:47

we do not see a single one of those who you whom you used to claim will intercede on your behalf. Where are they realizing they're not here? We do not see anyone whom you used to claim will intercede on your behalf. Indeed, it has been cut the link between you and them has been absolutely cut. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us your best bet is to earn the intercession of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam For indeed that is happening. This is why after I learn, we are taught to ask for the intercession of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam For indeed he has said that I have been granted an intercession by Allah subhanho wa Taala for the members of my oma who are meant to be

00:26:47 --> 00:27:08

going into hellfire. May Allah subhanho wa Taala truly grant us the intercession of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, but my brothers and sisters in order to qualify for that you need to worship Allah alone, and you need to follow the footsteps of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as best as possible. May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah protect us from every form of association of partnership with him. I mean,

00:27:10 --> 00:27:12

was number 109. Again, the

00:27:14 --> 00:27:27

duration of Muhammad niqab. He says that Quraysh told Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam this was part of their stubbornness. Musa alayhis salam you told us he had a stick that came and it was a big sign. You know the stick of Moses?

00:27:28 --> 00:27:42

He Salli Salam you told us that he gave life to the dead by the power of Allah. Mahmoud, you told us about the camel. That was so great. And grant. What about you? Oh, Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, this was the question.

00:27:44 --> 00:27:45

He says, What do you want me to come with?

00:27:47 --> 00:28:24

They said this mountain of suffer, we want you to convert it into gold. And then we will believe look at this mountain of Safa. We want you to convert it into gold, and then we will believe so gibreel Ali Salaam comes to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and says O Muhammad sallahu wa salam. We have two options here for these people. We convert this mount of sulfur into gold here and now whoever denies the sign thereafter, we destroy them. That's number one. Number two is we leave it and we give them another chance with different signs elsewhere. And other times, you know, the splitting of the moon and whatever else came later on. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says through jabril la salatu

00:28:24 --> 00:29:01

salam that we will leave them because if that is the case, we give them a bit of respect. Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was so concerned and so worried. And he said, Let us leave it for later because I fear that even if they see these signs, they will not accept them. And if they don't accept them, and the option is that they will be destroyed, we will be left with no one. This is why in Islam, my brothers and sisters, let's not be fooled by what people are doing today in the name of Islam, going about killing anyone and everyone saying these are non Muslims, these we differ with them in opinion, these perhaps belong to this sector that say no. In Islam, the duty is to convey the

00:29:01 --> 00:29:23

message up to the point of death. You keep on conveying the message whoever accepts that handler, whoever doesn't you have conveyed the message and hamdulillah Marlena Allah, Allah Our duty is to convey the message. Look at Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he had an option of eradicating these Muslims who are harming him. What did he say? He said, No, give them a chance. Give them a chance. So a lot of universe number 109 of Surah Al anon

00:29:24 --> 00:29:27

wakasa movie la hija de Imani la

00:29:31 --> 00:29:31


00:29:33 --> 00:29:49

They are taking authors, they are taking oaths In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala that if this sign comes to us, we will definitely believe and Allah subhanho wa Taala says later on, Omar Yoshi, welcome. How do you know and Eva

00:29:51 --> 00:30:00

mean Oh, if the sign comes, perhaps they may deny it. They are quick to tell you if it

00:30:00 --> 00:30:07

Comes with accepted when it comes the meeting the way these are the kuffaar of Quraysh they were stubborn, and Allah says while

00:30:10 --> 00:30:11

he was

00:30:13 --> 00:30:14

in katakana

00:30:18 --> 00:30:23

kalasha you Ebola maca minnow in

00:30:25 --> 00:30:26


00:30:29 --> 00:31:13

Allah is telling us about those kuffaar of porridge that will lie. Even if we had to send down the angels, or we have to resurrect the dead. All we had to bring forth everything that happened to pass away a four time in order to convince them they will not accept the message except if Allah wills these people are very stubborn. Like I said earlier, may Allah protect us from stubbornness. Brothers and sisters in our homes. Sometimes we are so stubborn. The solution to a problem is one split second away. You just have to give your stubbornness up for a moment and your home will be the most peaceful home on Earth. But No dad says no, it's over.

00:31:14 --> 00:31:54

Mom says no. or whoever else says no. And that's it. Or we sticking on to that we are not talking of halal and haram. No one is asking us to compromise on the obligations that Allah has placed on our shoulders. But what we are saying that which is okay, it's permissible. I can either enter from this side Oh, that's a common big deal. Why is it that we need to destroy our home just because we want everything our way like they say my way or highway and this one is right down the road here. Now Allah Subhana Allah to Allah forgive us. Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings. I want to end with the one verse, verse number 118, all the way up to verse number 121 of Surah Al anon, tomorrow inshallah

00:31:54 --> 00:31:55

we'll move to another surah.

00:31:57 --> 00:32:32

Soon an Abbe de would as well as soon as the team edition and anessa integration of kidnap buzzworthy Allahu anhu. He says the co founder of Quraysh, they had an issue with the sacrificial animals, you know, halal and haram. We need to cut halal, isn't it the food is halal. It means it is sacrificed correctly, it is slaughtered properly the name of Allah is mentioned the permission of Allah the method of Allah is, is definitely invoked and it is taken because Allah is the giver of life to that animal, we have no right to take the life away, except by the permission of the giver of that life. So we will say Bismillah we will do it in a specific way And for your information, the

00:32:32 --> 00:32:51

original teachings of the Jews and the Christians are exactly the same as the Muslims when it comes to consumption and halal and haram But sadly, over time, this type of sacrifice and slaughter has been changed by all parties. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us restore law and order in this regard. My brothers and sisters so they asked him a question.

00:32:52 --> 00:32:53

Look at the question.

00:32:54 --> 00:32:58

They said, if an animal dies, who killed it?

00:33:00 --> 00:33:37

Muhammad Allah, Allah says Allah Allah took it away. So they said Think for a moment if Allah takes the life away, you telling us the meat is haram and if you cut it, or if a if a dog happens to catch it, you know one of those hunting dogs or a hunting Eagle happens to take it then you are telling us that it's permissible. And if I'm not teaching you saying it's not look at the cycle, they're trying to use a dead animal they used to want to sell things by hook or crook you have a dead animal like what they do in some countries. They say no, no, bring it no one's gonna know it's dead. Let's sell the meat. Stover Allah. May Allah forgive us. We are not permitted to eat that which is dead carry

00:33:37 --> 00:34:04

in. Carry on is totally Haram. But these people they wanted it because they knew animal died we cannot suffer that loss. We can't. So they went saying to Mohammed Salah sama this one How can it be prohibited when Allah took the life away the other one you took the life away? So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this is number 180 of sudo su or sudo Elena all the way up to 121 starting off with for pulumi mega chaos Mola, la

00:34:05 --> 00:34:39

Toby it mini eat that only which the name of Allah has been made mentioned upon if you truly believe in Allah, and the verses continue a great detail of halal and haram and so on. We won't go into all that but it was a very, very interesting narration and taking a look at this illogical logic according to them, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us Pure Food May he make us all happy? May You grant us Jenna was Allah Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhana labmd Subhana Allah homovanillic Misha to Allah Allah hi lantana stuff hirokawa Tobu Nick
