Excellence presents jewels from the Holy Quran, a series of lectures by Mufti Ismail Ibn Musa menke.

00:00:44 --> 00:00:51

Lecture 14 to 16 and quarter to do 17 and half a Salam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

00:00:53 --> 00:01:04

smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah most Gracious, Most Merciful Alhamdulillah Allah Allah mean All praise is indeed due to Allah subhanho wa Taala Lord of the worlds

00:01:05 --> 00:01:29

wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Muhammad Ali Al amin complete blessings and salutations to the one who was sent as mercy to mankind sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and May the blessings and mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala be upon all his companions and all of us who are seated here today. May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless us all and May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all offspring who will be the champions of this Deen inshallah.

00:01:30 --> 00:02:19

On a dilemma, beloved brothers and sisters and dearest listeners, we commenced with the story of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam that is in Surah, Colombia, the surah that Allah has named after the Gambia and the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If we take a careful look at the Surah At the beginning, Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us about the fact that we are all going to perish very, very soon. And Allah speaks of the day of reckoning, a Katara ballin. Sabu movie of Lattimore Abu, definitely the hour of reckoning is very, very close to men, but men is playing, turning away, whilst very oblivious of that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who can always

00:02:20 --> 00:02:37

be conscious of the fact that we could be dying at any moment and inshallah that will help us to be better people. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam and what he told his father, he was a young boy. In fact, he was a young man, his father was a lot older than him. And one day he told his father

00:02:39 --> 00:02:40


00:02:43 --> 00:02:45

he Me, me, me.

00:02:47 --> 00:02:48


00:02:49 --> 00:02:51


00:02:56 --> 00:03:16

Oh, my father, knowledge has come to me that has not come to you. So follow me and inshallah I will lead you to the right path. Allahu Akbar. What do we learn from this? We learn from this, that sometimes those who are much younger than us, will come to us with knowledge that we have

00:03:17 --> 00:03:55

nothing about meaning we have no knowledge about they will come up with something that will be regarded as solid knowledge. They could be our own children. Sometimes our children will come up to us and say, You know what, Daddy, this is wrong in Islam. This is the ruling and this is the verse of the Quran. This is the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Here it is, sometimes our daughters will come up to their mothers and say, You know what, my dear mother, this is not the way you should be dressing. It happens. So we must regard that as a point of mercy. Because if they are right, then we accept it on merit, not on how old they are. We accept the message on merit, not

00:03:55 --> 00:04:14

on how old they are. So as the father of Ibrahim alayhi salatu wa sallam refused, and he told his father, he told his son, that you know what, we are going to throw you in the fire. And Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded and instructed the fire. Polina okuni, Baba wasallam and Allah

00:04:16 --> 00:04:51

we instructed the fire, saying, become cold and be a means of peace upon Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. One of the narrations makes mention of that the peace and what happened when Allah instructed the fire to be a means of peace. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam was released into the fire whilst he was tied with ropes. The fire burned the ropes, but did not harm Ibrahim alayhis salam. So he came out, untie amazing. So that was a means of his peace and his comfort. When a person is tired, how uncomfortable they are.

00:04:52 --> 00:05:00

So when they are loosened once again, they feel very happy. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us the acceptance and May He grant us the understanding also

00:05:00 --> 00:05:35

Allah subhanho wa Taala in the surah makes a very, very important point that we need to learn from, in fact, points of all the MBR. The highlight in the surah is that every Nabhi made a dua to Allah, every Nabhi called out to Allah. They were all in need when they called out, they were patient, they waited for the date and the response came, listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala says 101 is nada. remember the time when he called out to us that means he had a need, there was something he required a prophet of Allah. And he called out to us after some time Allah says,

00:05:36 --> 00:05:53

Allah who so we answered his call. When Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What are you by even remember when you bought a salon call out to us, and after a while Allah says, Mr. Jordan Allah, so we responded the call, then Allah says, Why then?

00:06:01 --> 00:06:09

unison in salatu salam, he went away and he called out to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says after some time, first

00:06:11 --> 00:06:16

we responded the call we answered it positively. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, was Carrie.

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

Remember even Zachary Ali Salaam called out to us and Allah says,

00:06:28 --> 00:06:57

We answered his call and we gave him the challenge that he wanted. This teachers all of us we are not prophets. We are far lower than the prophets. Let's call out to Allah for our needs. Allahu Akbar, if those better than us could call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala Why don't we find ourselves raising our hands and calling out to Allah subhanho wa Taala and be patient for one day the response will come remember when you make a DRI Allah Allah give me something let me give you a simple example for you to laugh. Yeah, Allah give me a VW Golf GTI

00:06:59 --> 00:07:05

if Allah knows is best for you, now, believe me, it will be waiting outside for you. That's not my favorite car just for your information.

00:07:07 --> 00:07:40

But at the same time, Allah will give it to you it will be waiting outside if he knows that that's best for you. Now, if he knows it's good for you later on, maybe when you mature with your legs slightly, and you know how to handle the pedal a little bit, then Allah might give it to you later on, because that moves to 260 K's an hour, you might die as a result, it might be a means of your destruction. So through Allah's mercy, he's not giving it to you, Allahu Akbar, until you mature a little bit, then he might give it to you, but you can continue making that die, it's not Haram. Then, if Allah knows that that's not good for you at all, because you have, you will never achieve

00:07:40 --> 00:08:16

control of the right foot of yours. In that case, he won't give it to you, he might substitute it with a far smaller vehicle and he might give you something in return. Thank Allah every one of us must know that whatever Allah has given us is the best for us. Sometimes we make it why Allah get me married to so and so with a name. It's not haram to do that. But Allah knows that that's not good for us. So he creates an obstacle between us and marriage to that person. And what happens we become upset Allah didn't answer my call no ways. Possibly had you managed that person. There might have been offspring who are far away from Islam, they might have been some form of destruction, someone

00:08:16 --> 00:08:37

might have died, they might have been a big disease, there might have been something that Allah is protecting you from so that is why in the drought of St. Hara the drought that we make to Allah subhanho wa Taala we say Oh Allah, if this is better for us in our Deen in our in our future, then make it easy for us. If not, then take it away from us and make us happy with your distribution.

00:08:38 --> 00:08:44

So when Allah has not given you something you must be convinced that that was not good for you. That is any that is a moment.

00:08:48 --> 00:08:57

Amazing is the affair of a believer. All the affairs of the believers are good for them. They understand and realize that whatever Allah has decided that is best for me.

00:08:58 --> 00:09:35

Sometimes if Allah subhanho wa Taala has decided that our hands be amputated or we suffer a sickness Believe me. If we have Eman we will realize that that was the best for us but we are weak May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us really May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance to understand his plan and his decree and never to question it. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how he has sent Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a point of mercy to mankind. Didn't we start this evening's lecture by saying May the peace and blessings be upon the one whom Allah has sent as a point of mercy for all creation? on

00:09:41 --> 00:09:59

me, O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we have only sent you as a point of mercy to all creation. Do you know that even the cows and the goats that we slaughter the Rama Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is felt there because

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

He has taught us how to slaughter the animal. And he has said that whoever would like to slaughter an animal was chopping the blade and use a swift movement in order to let that animal be at ease, Allahu Akbar.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:36

So much so that even the ecosystem around us, Allah has had mercy on it through the teachings of Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasallam we are not allowed to destroy and engage in what is known as deforestation as a religious duty. I am not allowed to just burn the forests and the fires and so on. No, it's my religious duty to preserve the ecosystem of Allahu Akbar.

00:10:38 --> 00:11:06

So we must realize that Islam is a religion that teaches us the whole way of life. It has not left anything out in the next surah Allah subhanho wa Taala has spoken about the Yama and the surah is named Surah Al Hajj. So what is the relation between Yama and Hajj, let me explain to you all had we all know what it is when we go to alpha the menfolk are dressed in what we would normally enshroud are dead with is that not correct? It Kevin similar to a cover two pieces of cloth and that's it.

00:11:08 --> 00:11:32

And when we go to out of everything, their hands making it to Allah give me grant me ALLAH forgive my sins and so on. Everyone returns from Hajj in sha Allah as pure as the day they were born. The same applies on the day of the AMA we shall all be standing similarly in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala what a comparison Allah commence a Surah Al Hajj reminding us about piano Yeah.

00:11:35 --> 00:11:41

Oh people will be conscious of your in as Angela atishi on

00:11:42 --> 00:11:58

the hour of the tremor is definitely something very, very severe. The hour of the tremor, what is that the time of tiama when the trumpet shall be blown? Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yamato una de you see that our coming that Hello.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:50

Every breastfeeding woman will forget about what she's doing. She will leave her breastfeeding child. What's the comparison? In order to breastfeed the child? A woman needs maximum concentration, maximum concentration and the connection is so solid. If that connection is not there, the woman might suffer certain diseases like mastitis and various other diseases connected to breastfeeding. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect our women folk. And Allah says even that woman will forget not only that Allah says, What elbow colada tea Hamelin hemlock, every woman who is bearing a child shall be forced into labor, it will automatically cause labor, she will be in labor. Why? The huge

00:12:50 --> 00:13:23

sound? You know what medicine has proven and from a long time they've proven this, but the Quran has said it a long time ago, that sometimes when a woman is pregnant, and there is some huge sound or some huge worry that comes up, it can cause that woman to go into labor, even prematurely. And that's affect us all the gynecologists, they will tell you that may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding. So the Quran says when that hour of trimmer comes about those women who are holding children, they will give birth to those children. What

00:13:26 --> 00:13:38

people will be dashing about as though they are drunk, because they will be such a huge sound. Things will be coming to an end the mountains shall be flowing as though they are Cottonwood, Allahu Akbar.

00:13:39 --> 00:13:51

What are on Angie Bella tak Sabu hi Jamie Dotto here tomorrow Manasa have a look at the mountains. You look at them as though they are solid they will be moving as though they are clouds like cotton wool Allahu Akbar.

00:13:52 --> 00:14:07

Now you find people will be really bazik absolutely berserk. Allah says you will see them as though they are drunk wanna be Sankara but they are not drunk in reality, while lacking

00:14:08 --> 00:14:35

Shadi, but the punishment of Allah is so severe, may Allah protect us. So Allah describes the day of the AMA Zilla tassa Allahu Akbar, what is solid vis what a vivid description of the AMA May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who can take heed. And Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the same surah speaks about Hajj, and he speaks about how Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam was instructed to announce the Hajj.

00:14:36 --> 00:14:45

Well, as you can see bill Hagia to carry jallianwala coolibah marry Tina

00:14:46 --> 00:15:00

Khalifa Jin ami co Ko, make the announcement of Hajj and you shall find people coming for Hajj, walking on foot and on every lean camel which means on every

00:15:00 --> 00:15:41

mode of transport today by sea they come walking they come. They come by road they come by a everything from the furthest corners of the globe. But when the announcement was made, there was no even microphone at that time. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam did not paste it on the internet to say come for Hajj. No, it wasn't the nowadays our agents do the job for us, Masha Allah, Allah make it easy for them also. But Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam was instructed to call because of the sincerity of that call. We have heard the call. There was Hajj from that time, but it is only that pre Islamic Lee they had allowed certain pagan beliefs to creep into the Hajj. So when Rasulullah sallallahu

00:15:41 --> 00:15:54

alayhi wasallam came what he did was he cleansed it from all forms of shield and it was solely for the sake of Allah la Vega la sharika la cara Bay in Alhambra, one metta Lackawanna

00:15:56 --> 00:16:00

Cherie kanak I'm sure you've heard that so many times May Allah take us there again and again.

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

And may Allah make it easy for those who have intended to perform Hajj inshallah this year? And may Allah make it easy for those who haven't performed who can who don't have the means that Allah grant him the mean so that they too can taste that spiritual journey at least once in their lives. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about that. And Allah subhanho wa Taala in the same surah he challenges all creation

00:16:26 --> 00:16:27


00:16:28 --> 00:16:41

sudo Reba Mata fest me rula Hola. Oh people. An example has been cited so listen to it very carefully to show us how weak man is how weak the created is.

00:16:42 --> 00:17:21

When it comes to comparing the created with the Creator Himself, Allah says in larina Tarun me mujer de la linea flu babba those whom you are calling out to as Gods besides Allah cannot create a fly. Allahu Akbar, they cannot create a what a fly, not one fly. Imagine a fly is so insignificant it irritates us, we spread our dooms and kilims and bagans in order to get rid of that fly, and Allah is giving the example of that insignificant creature. Nobody can create a fly Has anyone to this day created a fly, Allahu Akbar.

00:17:22 --> 00:17:33

And Allah says Hang on, not only will no one create a fly, while we J. Tama Ola, even if everybody got together to try to achieve a fly, they won't.

00:17:35 --> 00:17:36

That's the cooter of the power of Allah.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:42

And he didn't stop there. He says, should I show you still how powerful I am? What

00:17:47 --> 00:17:48

do I mean?

00:17:52 --> 00:18:13

Even if a fly takes away something from you, you will never ever, ever be able to return it from the fly. Nobody, even if the whole world gets together. Do you know what science has proven? When a fly sits on some sugar, small grain of sugar. When a fly sits on it, it firstly takes something out. Then it takes things in.

00:18:14 --> 00:18:18

And when it goes away, it has changed that sugar.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:54

To the degree that you can never, ever return the sugar to what it was no matter what bring technology bring science. It's impossible. Allahu Akbar. So Allah is showing us how weak we are. Forget creating the fly. Even if a flight takes something away from you forget about returning it to where it was a fly. Allah has shown us that example. This is how weak we are. So Allah says Ibrahim alayhi salatu wa salam was a submitted he submitted and he asked everyone to submit as well. We've sent messengers to tell you to submit submit to this creator who is so great Allahu Akbar. Minato de comida Hema, who was

00:18:55 --> 00:19:13

como una muslimeen. Allah says that is the path of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. That was his example. That is his way. Allah says he is the one who called you the submitters May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all through submitters. In fact, in the surah, Allah speaks about the order here. Allah speaks about the sacrificial animals and he says,

00:19:15 --> 00:19:15


00:19:25 --> 00:19:59

Allah says, the sacrifices that you engage in, you know, every year we have the Oba that we engage in we slaughter the sacrificial animals at the point of evil of commemorating the sacrifice of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam of his son Ishmael. Allah subhanho wa Taala says the meat doesn't get to us. The meat doesn't get to us, nor does the blood get to us, Allah says, but he says what gets to us is the taqwa the God consciousness behind it, we should be doing it to try and achieve closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala Ibrahim alayhi salaatu wa sallam put a knife to what we

00:20:00 --> 00:20:39

was coming between him and Allah subhanho wa Taala that from the dunya, which was the most beloved to him, he decided to sacrifice that for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala we shouldn't be going about slaughtering our children, please, we shouldn't be going about slaughtering our children and saying I had a dream our dreams are not commands please, Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us that understanding but we need to put a knife to those things in the dunya that come between us and our Creator such as the Haram relationships that we have. We need to put a knife slaughter it slushy such as some haram activity we might be engaged in, such as heroin income such as lying, cheating,

00:20:39 --> 00:21:18

stealing, malice, hatred, envy, enmity, we need to cut those things. So when we are slaughtering the animal at that point, it is not the animal it is we are slaughtering the bad habits we have for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala leaving them on the ground and we will carry on from that day pure and clean, just like when we are pelting the shape and when we go to Mina, in essence, we are taking out the shape and from within and leaving him in Mena with every stone that goes out you say Allahu Akbar, and all your bad qualities need to come out the first day concentrate on seven major bad qualities you have maybe hatred, maybe Ill feeling maybe with each stone one quality must be left in

00:21:18 --> 00:21:27

Mena, so that when you come back from Hajj you have left behind at least 49 of your bad habits and qualities. You come back as clean as the day you were born.

00:21:28 --> 00:21:41

These are the spiritual dimensions of Hajj that sometimes we go for Hajj, we come back and we didn't even realize that's what we were supposed to be achieving. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about

00:21:42 --> 00:21:48

in the next tour speaks about success. And he described success in one word called the afla. Hello.

00:21:50 --> 00:22:02

You want to know who are successful, those who believe. And at the end of the same surah he describes those who are unsuccessful, who are those who are unsuccessful, the end of the same surah Allah says in Nirvana.

00:22:04 --> 00:22:15

Those who are ungrateful will never be successful. Remember, the word caffeine is used in the Arabic language to mean that he who is ungrateful, he is or they are also termed kuffaar in the Quran.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:24

A person who is not grateful and kuffaar in the Quran in the Arabic language also used for disbelievers May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all.

00:22:26 --> 00:22:46

So Allah says, Those who are too far shall not be successful. Now one might ask, I want to be successful. I want to be a believer. I spoke about this in this Masjid prior to Ramadan. Let me quickly go through it. Allah says successful are the believers what is the highest level of success you want to gauge your success? Allah Subhana Allah says in the next part of the verse,

00:22:47 --> 00:23:22

and levena, whom feasts Allah team Kashi rune, those who concentrate in their Salah if you can concentrate in your Salah inshallah, you've achieved success because you are a true believer, but obviously all of us our concentration levels are so low in Salah solo. As soon as we say Allahu Akbar, we start thinking now after the Salah, what am I going to do? I need to get home before 11 o'clock I need to have some ice cream, I need to sleep I need to get up for support I need to and by that time the man says Allahu Akbar, and now we're going down. And in record, we pay lip service to the SBA. That is they were busy thinking about how long does he mommy's taking you know, I need to

00:23:22 --> 00:23:38

see the time and sometimes we look at it in ruku May Allah safeguard us. This is the condition of ourselves sometimes. Really, its effect. Now tell me we want to achieve I want to get concentration you want to get concentration the Hadith says a person will only achieve the true benefit of Salah for as much as they've concentrated in that Salah.

00:23:39 --> 00:24:18

So if I want to achieve concentration What do I do? Allah says when levina humani lovely Maria Do you need to stay away from vain talk that which is unnecessary why if you engage in that which is unnecessary whole day you gossiping, I was going to say like a woman but nowadays men are doing it more professionally than women. May Allah safeguard us we go about gossiping and talking about this and that all unnecessary things then our mind becomes occupied with unnecessary things we have no time for that which is necessary. You know you have the email that is going about people say you have stones you have you have rocks, stones and sand and you've got one pot What do you put in first

00:24:18 --> 00:24:52

if you put in the sand first you won't have placed for the stones and the rocks rather put in the rocks first then put in the stones shake it a little bit the stones will find their way through the gaps that are created by the rocks then put in all the sand shake it a little bit more the sand will find its way also in the pot and everything will fit inside our brain has a capacity say for example the brain has a capacity if we were to say in kilograms 20 kilos it's quite a big brain actually. But if we fill it with 20 kilos of that which is unnecessary is there space for that which is necessary nothing at all. So let's first do those things which are vital and necessary, then

00:24:52 --> 00:24:59

inshallah we go to that not which is unnecessary, but that which is less than that inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala accept us now. If you'd like to

00:25:00 --> 00:25:43

achieve the if you'd like to achieve staying away from that which is unnecessary, what should you do? Allah says when levina homeless zakka Tifa and you do you need to cleanse yourself spiritually take out the bad qualities. The word zakka means purification. It also means growth. When Allah uses the word fear is zaca. And when he is speaking about the neffs and the soul he is normally speaking about cleansing the Zakat meaning cleansing the soul, like in Surah two Shams Allah speaks about but the afla Hammonds aka successful is the one who purifies his soul. So Zakat here, mostly referring to purification of the heart, take away malice, takeaway hatred, take away jealousy, takeaway envy,

00:25:43 --> 00:26:07

be content with what Allah has provided for you. If that is the case, you will not be engaging in that which is unnecessary. If you don't engage in that which is unnecessary, then inshallah automatically you will be able to concentrate in Salah. Now how will I achieve cleansing my heart? Allah says when Medina homely Fujian half Eagle those who protect their private paths, Allahu Akbar, Miyama lima bean alayhi wa benavidez

00:26:08 --> 00:26:19

we find the repetition of this hadith whoever guarantees me Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, wherever guarantee is the correct use of the tongue and the correct use of his or her private path. I guarantee them Gentlemen,

00:26:20 --> 00:26:38

I guarantee them Jenna. So if we use these two organs correctly, Allah will help us to abstain from that which is unnecessary, and Allah will help us in fact, before that cleanse our hearts when we've cleansed our hearts we stay away from that which is unnecessary, then we can concentrate in salah and we become the true believers who will be successful. You see how the verse works the other way around.

00:26:40 --> 00:27:15

Now one might ask how do I protect my private parts Allah subhanho wa Taala says, After that, when Latina only Amana tema de mo, those who fulfill their pledges and their promises, when we married, it's a big pledge Allah calls it in the Quran meetha cannavale. It is a solid solid pledge covenant that you are pledging your spouse so if you are faithful in marriage, automatically you have fulfilled the promise you fulfill your promise and Skittle effect inshallah you will go right to the top as we explained. Now one might ask, so how do I become faithful?

00:27:16 --> 00:27:20

Allah says, Well, levena Houma la sala team you have

00:27:22 --> 00:27:47

those who protect their five Salah in the day, you start off reading five Salah nothing brings you to the mercy of besides the love of Allah, nothing makes you read your Salah besides the love of Allah when you left out when it hurts you It pains that means you are building your Eman. If you can do that, for the unseen, believe me, for those who are in front of you, you will be able to do just the same meaning you'll be able to be as faithful to them as well.

00:27:48 --> 00:28:23

If you can do something for Allah sake without anyone putting a stick behind you and whipping you to get to the masjid, you read your five Salah day, automatically you will abstain from sin automatically Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you the ability to fulfill your pledges and promises because you are you have developed a consciousness of him through those five salah and then automatically you will be able to protect your private paths automatically you will be able to cleanse yourselves automatically from there you will be able to abstain from that which is unnecessary and then you will be able to achieve concentration in salah and you will be from amongst

00:28:23 --> 00:28:39

the believers who will be successful Allahu Akbar, look at how that works. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant that to us, you can pick up that suit on the moon and you can read the verses and see how we've worked it the other way up. Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding thereafter Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about some of the messengers of Allah.

00:28:40 --> 00:29:06

And Allah says he mentioned quite a few stories. And he says all these messengers and here the highlight is the fact that they all said my Shahada in myth lucam this messenger coming to us is a human being just like us, Who does he think he is? He's coming to tell us things. He's just like us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says and after vvb the people told their messengers, yeah, pulumi Mehta. coluna mean why shabu?

00:29:07 --> 00:29:32

shabu, they are eating just the same food you are eating and they are drinking from what you are drinking also. So what is so big about them? What gives them the virtue? Allah Subhana Allah clarifies it in a very beautiful way in the surah. and thereafter, Allah addresses the messengers, because this accusation or this statement was uttered also against Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We will see the channel either tomorrow or the next night.

00:29:33 --> 00:29:38

And Allah Subhana Allah says, Yeah, Russolo kulu Amina

00:29:39 --> 00:30:00

Malou, Sani ha all messengers. Don't worry about their statements. keep on eating the good food that we we have bestowed upon you keep on eating Don't worry, you are human beings, but Allah raised them higher than us because Allah gave them Nobu and rissalah and Prophethood May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to respect the prophets of Allah and to love them and to follow

00:30:00 --> 00:30:06

Their message in sha Allah. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how when death comes to the criminals what they will say

00:30:07 --> 00:30:08


00:30:11 --> 00:30:12

to call

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

a nanny

00:30:17 --> 00:30:24

nanny melosa rosani. FEMA tarak. Allah says, the answer is

00:30:26 --> 00:30:53

when death comes to one of the criminals, they will say and we've repeated this in the past, they will say, yeah, Allah, Allah, let me have another chance. Let me go back to the dunya. I will do good in what I have left behind. Now I have seen that all this is a reality. Allah says Nay, that is impossible. And in one verse, Allah says, even if we sent the people back, they would still repeat the same deeds. So May we be the people who from here we do good deeds from now we take heed.

00:30:55 --> 00:31:02

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says at the end of that surah a huseby from an AMA Hakuna Matata?

00:31:03 --> 00:31:44

Elena, Allah told john, do you think we have created you for nothing? Do you think we have created you with no purpose? Think about it, ponder, close your eyes and think about it. Do you think we have created you for no reason? Allah says, Do you think you're not going to return to us? Everyone has already come to us those before you. All of them have come to us now. It's you who's going to come to us and after you also those who come shall thereafter come to us, we will return to us. So let's think about it. Let's be good. Insha Allah, may Allah grant us success. Then we have a Surah Surah to know where Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the rule of Allah. And the verses we shall

00:31:44 --> 00:31:46

read tomorrow night in sha Allah, Allah says Allah.

00:31:48 --> 00:32:30

Allah is the new and Allah describes that new in a very, very beautiful way. But in the verses we read tonight, part of surah to know, do you know that in Surah, to know what is the message, have we ever picked it up and read it? It's all to do with morality. It is all to do with remaining steadfast and abstaining from immorality, sexual misbehavior, people need to abstain from that. This is what is in Surah. to note, some of the scholars have said those who can lower their gaze for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala will be granted the new in the dunya and this isn't suited to me Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who can turn to him at all times. So Allah

00:32:30 --> 00:33:09

commences with the verses about Xena and how the punishment should be carried out against those who commit Zina. Now before we go into the punishment of Xena there are two punishments one is the stoning to death of a one a person who has who has been married in the past or is correctly married and they commit Zina the Sherry as a such a person should be stoned to death that is there. There is no doubt no debate the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu have confirmed it. And Allah who has spoken about it nowadays, you have people who say you know what, that's not in the Quran. That's not Islam. Why do you want to justify things? When you know that the Sharia has no loopholes? Ask those who can

00:33:09 --> 00:33:54

explain it to you. Look, these punishments of Xena are deterrence more than punishments. It is virtually impossible to have four complete eyewitnesses who read Salah five times a day who are brilliant Muslims to come in bear witness and describe to the kadhi in an Islamic court telling him exactly what they saw describing the act of * May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us imagine you have guys with big beards for example. And people who are five times Salah in the first stuff now they see two people kissing they will probably look the other side but I got nothing to do with this. Do you think it does it make sense that this person will then have a watch phone his

00:33:54 --> 00:34:33

buddies who he knows on a similar spiritual level and said you know what, you guys, we need three of you to come here and witness this. We got to go to the caddy then to the court. No, it's a deterrent. Never in Islamic history. Has anyone been stoned to death except through confession? I hope we understand that. Never in Islamic history. Has anyone been stoned to death except through confession? unless there was something wrong with this justice system? Because this is a deterrent. It is impossible to get four eyewitnesses who are brilliant Muslims who don't have a blemish against them. Do you know if you can prove that that man has Mr. Salah his witness will not be accepted?

00:34:34 --> 00:34:59

That's impossible. You can't get that. So let us understand it is a deterrent. It is telling us that we definitely need to abstain from the sin because it is a huge crime at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Yes, there was a woman who was stoned. But that was from confession. She confessed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam turned away from her told her to go away. Maybe you didn't do this and so on. And after a long time, she kept on saying I need to be cleansed some Sahaba even said

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

Why are you coming out and saying this when Allah has protected you? The sin was committed in secret. Now when people begin to open, openly commit sin in front of people, that is when this will come into place, Allahu Akbar, may Allah grant us all protection ourselves and our children from this from this serious crime of Xena. So Allah subhanho wa Taala commences with it. Then.

00:35:24 --> 00:35:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about something worse than Xena. What is wisdom, Xena.

00:35:30 --> 00:35:44

Those who accuse others of Zina that is Western United self to accuse someone of committing an act or to accuse someone of adultery is worse than the act itself. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all.

00:35:45 --> 00:35:49

And Allah says such a person who you must never ever accept their witness.

00:35:50 --> 00:35:56

When levena mon Alma Sana tea from Allah Mia Toby arbeiten shuhada

00:35:57 --> 00:36:20

tamani Nigel de la COVID Ola home shahadat, an Abba, those who accuse others of Xena, those who accuse the believing women of Xena you know nowadays, when we watch a man and a woman talking and people come about and they say you know those two are having an affair. Do you know how serious that statement is? While law if it was in the form of ink and it was to be put in the oceans it would change the color of the Atlantic Ocean.

00:36:21 --> 00:36:43

That is how devastating that statement is. Those two are having an affair. What are you talking about? Are you ready to stand in front of a lot of bullies that you are jealous and utter the statement again? Allahu Akbar. Bear in mind out our tongues inshallah. We'd rather abstain Keep quiet. What is meant by that today when someone says those who are having an affair, they are accusing them of Zina, may Allah protect us all.

00:36:44 --> 00:36:51

So that is why we rather make dua for them. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding tomorrow inshallah we will mention the story of eyeshadow
