I

00:00:02--> 00:00:04

mean a shame on you. I

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

excellence presents jewels from the Holy Quran. A series of lectures by Mufti is mine even Moosa menc.

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

lectured 16 to 17 and a half to dues 18 and three quarter. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah most Gracious, Most Merciful. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:01:00--> 00:01:40

wa salatu wa salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all his followers. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Have mercy on us all, we are very quickly approaching the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan. inshallah, when we get to those evenings, we should be in top form inshallah and we should all have a firm intention from now that we will spend much more time engaging in the acts of worship that we are meant to be engaging during the month of Ramadan, reading the Quran engaging in Salah during the evening, and lots and lots of Israel follow. Sharia

00:01:40--> 00:02:21

law once asked what should be done during those evenings and she was told very clearly to recite the following Allahumma inaka foon to hip Bula for fast wanna, Oh Allah, you are most forgiving, you love to forgive so forgive us. And from this, we learn that if one achieves forgiveness during the month of Ramadan, they have achieved something very great and grand May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all. Last night, we had spoken about the fact that in Surah, two new Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the punishment of those who have committed adultery. There are several clarifications that I'd like to make. The first is that in a country where the Islamic law is not

00:02:21--> 00:03:03

being implemented, and where there is no Sharia court, it is not up to the general public of the Muslims to execute those the penal code that is set in the Koran. So let's get this straight. Only way the Sharia is being implemented. And there is a court that adopts the Sharia and implements it. Those are the only places where this punishment shall be executed. Otherwise, it is not up to me and you to decide, right? Someone has committed this crime. Let's pick them up and start whipping them. Now the villa May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all understanding in environments such as the one we are living in, we will engage in Toba insha Allah and we will encourage others to engage in Toba

00:03:04--> 00:03:44

and we will try our best to communicate the good word of Allah subhanho wa Taala so that people can turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala with their hearts And may Allah use us in sha Allah to deliver the message and may He make us from amongst those who can adopt it ourselves as well. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the lashes I mentioned yesterday the stoning. Today I'd like to mention the lashing 80 lashes or up to 100 lashes of those infected 100 lashes. The adulterer or adulterous, those who have committed adultery, and they have not been married in the past or they are not married a correct nikka at the moment as well. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of that. And

00:03:44--> 00:03:59

as I said, and I'm repeating it again today, the punishment regarding those who've committed adultery in the Sharia, yes, it is a punishment, whether it is the stoning to death of those who have been married or are married, or whether it is the whipping and lashing of those who have not been married.

00:04:01--> 00:04:43

We must not deny that it is the penal code but more than a punishment, we should all know that it is a deterrent. And I explained that yesterday, it is more a deterrent than anything else because it is absolutely impossible to have four solid Muslims of a sound background without a blemish on their record to come and witness one person committing Zina. Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant has that understanding. Up to now the media makes a big noise about people who might be stoned here or there the day they are stoned. We will tackle the issue. Up to today. None of them have been stoned. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to understand that the media has its game and it is

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

playing it very well. But with ourselves we do not authenticate before we believe it. So we fall into the trap of the media as Muslims ourselves. We tend to start feeling that the Sharia is barbaric by doing that we lose our own Eman. So May Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us all slaves of

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

The media, we should not believe stories. When people utter we should learn how they utter what they utter why they utter and we shouldn't fall into their traps. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding then in the surah, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of a verse that is Miss translated in many of the English translation for us that we have.

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

There is a verse, Allah speaks about

00:05:23--> 00:05:28

the man and the woman who have committed adultery and Allah says, as Zan, Elijah

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

was zania

00:05:37--> 00:06:07

machinic. Now what some people translate this verse, as they say, and I'm sure we might have heard it, they say that a person who's committed adultery will not marry anyone but a lady who's committed adultery. And a lady who's committed adultery will not marry anyone but a man who's committed adultery. That translation is incorrect. It's wrong. The word Nika in the Sharia does not only mean the marriage that we engage in No, it also means the act of intercourse.

00:06:08--> 00:06:47

So Allah subhanho wa Taala here is saying that an adultery does not commit adultery with anyone but an adulterous because if she was not an adulterous, it would have been raped and not adultery. I hope we've understood that. What Allah subhanho wa Taala has done is he is equating the two in the crime. Why in the previous verse, He said lash both of them not only the male, not only the female lash both of them because they were both equal parties in fulfilling that crime. That is why Allah says, a person who is a male committing adultery is only committing adultery with a woman who's an adulterous, they are both equal. And if a woman is an adulterous, then the man committing the act

00:06:47--> 00:07:22

with her is also an adulterer, they are both equal. So that means that Allah subhanho wa Taala is showing us that look, a person committing adultery cannot say I committed adultery with someone who did not want to commit it because then it would be right. And that punishment is far worse. But when it is adultery, both of them are equal parties. That is the meaning of the verse. In fact, some of those I have I have gone as far as translating it slightly differently also, and they've said Zani lamb buggy Allahu onion Ki Jai in lasagna and Amish Rica, that a person who's committed adultery, it is not befitting for that person to then get married to a virgin. It is not befitting for that

00:07:22--> 00:07:55

person. But it does not mean in any ways that a person who's committed adultery will never ever marry a virgin. That is a an incorrect translation. We might have heard it. It's a point of clarification that I've made here tonight. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant his understanding, also Allah subhanho wa Taala in the surah speaks about those who accused fellow Muslims and I remember mentioning that that is a bigger crime than Xena itself. Allah subhanho wa Taala says if they don't come with four witnesses, then less than 80 lashes when Latina masala tea

00:07:56--> 00:07:59

to be oh by the Shahada

00:08:01--> 00:08:01

agenda

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

Shahada

00:08:10--> 00:08:13

those who accuse innocent women innocent minute

00:08:14--> 00:08:52

of Zina, Allah subhanho wa Taala says if they don't come with four solid witnesses, then lash them for falsely accusing meaning and more minute, lash them at lashes and don't ever accept their witness in anything. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So it is very dangerous to accuse people of having committed adultery May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and our offspring And may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect the alma mater Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Thereafter, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes a very interesting ruling regarding a person who came to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam known as Hilary Brahma, radi Allahu anhu he came and he told the Prophet of Allah Allah

00:08:52--> 00:09:28

you said we should have four witnesses if we want to bear witness against someone committing Zina, what if I've seen my own wife committing the act and I don't have the other witnesses? What do I do, if I come and bear witness you might lash me. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam waited for revelation gibreel Allahu Salatu was Salam came and showed them the way out, if a man has witnessed his own wife committing the act, and meaning he should then go up if you would like to, if you would like to complain about it, and bear witness against her and so on, and he would like her to be served with the punishment, he should go to the shadow court or the shadow a group and he should

00:09:28--> 00:09:35

then tell them bear witness for times swearing By Allah, that will law what he has seen is the truth.

00:09:36--> 00:09:46

Each time he swears, it will be considered as one witness, the second witness, the third witness, the fourth witness, and then the first time he will say May the curse of Allah be on me if I am lying,

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

then the punishment will be deserved by the lady but because it was extraordinary, she will be given the opportunity to then also take a focus on that will lie I swear by Allah that He is lying. So if she

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

takes one person, the first witness is thrown out. If she takes another person to say he is lying one lie, the second witness is thrown out, the third witness is thrown out, the fourth witness is thrown out. Now she will not be punished. In fact, she has to make the fifth statement to say what law he if he is truthful, may the anger of Allah be upon me.

00:10:20--> 00:10:56

And in that case, the two will be separated forever and ever, never being able to get together in any car whatsoever. They will be separated forever, that will automatically occur once there is that type of accusation that we've described moments ago. And thereafter, none of them will be punished, obviously the lady will not be punished because she also slow persons that Look, he is lying. So this is how they shall be separated in the Sharia. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant has an understanding and May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect all of us. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about an incident that occurred at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam after a

00:10:56--> 00:11:32

battle known as what to venomous palate, when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the companions were returning with him was at Chateau de la when they were returning from this battle. And she happened to lose something of hers and she stopped to try and look for this piece of jewelry. And it so happened that by the time she got it, these people had all left and she found herself alone. She had been remained behind she had remained behind and the army was gone. She was all alone. And after that a certain Sahabi by the name of suffering, it will walk the law the Allahu anhu he happened to come by and he noticed that there is a lady he looked at her and he recognized

00:11:32--> 00:11:55

her to be eyeshadow calahonda from the cover. And he addressed her with all respect. Obviously she was the daughter of Abu Bakar acidic radi Allahu anhu. And we all know that she was the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of the purest and most chaste women to exist. Allahu Akbar. She was one of our mothers May Allah subhanho wa Taala really grant us the union with her in general as well.

00:11:56--> 00:12:35

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this incident, but let me complete the incident. This man gave her a lift literally, the man had given her a lift. And what happened is that when they arrived in Medina, the hypocrites saw that this lady was on the camel of this men. So people like Abdullah hypnobabies saloon and so on. They happen to to accuse this woman and this men, you know, these two, they had an affair. Allahu Akbar Didn't we mentioned that it is a very serious statement. You know, these two, they are committing adultery, they've committed the act, look at them. And yet it was an innocent assistance. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. God, grant us all understanding.

00:12:36--> 00:13:14

So what had happened is the news went to the ears of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He was furious, but at the same time, he didn't clarify anything because had he clarified it and said, No, that's impossible. People would have said, Look, he's only sticking up for his wife. It went to Abu Bakr, Siddiq, radi Allahu anhu. He was furious. He too, he waited because had he clarified his daughter's name, they would have said he's sticking up for his daughter. And there was lots of turbulence and lots of rumors going around in Medina, the people fell into three groups, those people who started spreading the rumors, those people who started the rumors, and they were guilty

00:13:14--> 00:13:26

of knowing that it's a lie, but spreading it. Those were the hypocrites and Allah mentions here, when lady Kibera who Allah says the one who had who was the father and the head of all this nonsense that was going on.

00:13:27--> 00:13:35

So that is the first type of people those who are cursed. The second type of people, Lola is semi tomo bulton Maja kulana

00:13:37--> 00:14:01

subhanak caha butano Navin certain people said no ways we can't be dirtying our tongues with this type of with these type of words. It is definitely alive. So without batting an eyelid they immediately rejected the statement. Those were the second type of people. The third type of people, Lola is Samira to move on me No, no almina to be to see him. waka Luna

00:14:02--> 00:14:22

ob Allah subhanho wa Taala says there were certain type of people whom they asked one another can we do it? If we can do that then Ayesha is cleaner than us. rhodiola one has she will never have done it so they do turn it away. And those people who had spread the rumor, Allah subhanho wa Taala clarified it almost a month later.

00:14:23--> 00:14:40

Why a month later because Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to show everyone who were the culprits and criminals and Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to cleanse the name of eyeshadow, the Allahu Allah from above. And those verses we read them in salah and we read them in the Quran.

00:14:41--> 00:14:48

When the verses came down after there was lots of turbulence, lots of turmoil in larina

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

letak Sabu

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

Allahu Akbar Allah says those who came with that fabrication, the minute fabrication the word fabrication was revealed. There was a sigh of relief in the whole of Medina.

00:15:11--> 00:15:49

Automatically everybody knew that this was a fabrication. They went to give good news to Ayesha Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu stopped communicating with I shall have the law because the rumors became so powerful, they were silenced. They were quiet, not uttering one word. You can't utter a word this way. You can't utter it that way. Imagine they try to accuse the most clean of women, so our womenfolk who may have been accused, do not display Allah subhanho wa Taala says it's not bad for you. It's good because they will take over all your sins. When you arrive on the day of the AMA, you will be spotless with other people shouldering

00:15:50--> 00:15:54

other sins that you've committed solely because they spread rumors about you if they could spread it about

00:15:56--> 00:16:26

Who are we? Lo Akbar May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us several lessons One is we should not miss our own tongues with such statements about anyone. The other is if anyone has uttered such statements about us, good news, it happened to the family of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that was a sign of acceptance Allah cleansed her name, inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala will purify our names if not in the dunya then in the alpha. So Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter speaks about our Casa de COVID Allahu anhu. The one of his relatives was known as Mr.

00:16:28--> 00:17:03

Abu Bakr Siddiq for the long run, who used to spend some money on him he used to help him and so on financially, that Mr. Had no authority Allahu anhu was one of those who was unfortunate and his tongue was missed. He started spreading the rumor also imagine about the daughter of the man who's helping you the most. So Abu Bakr Siddiq, Allah who saw a cousin he said, Well, he I swear by Allah, I'm never going to give this man anything after this day. And Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus addressing Abu Bakar and the lesson is for all of us on I Danny on all Fognini, Kumasi

00:17:05--> 00:17:09

to only Luca Rhonda wellness Masaki no

00:17:13--> 00:17:14

one near

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

to him.

00:17:25--> 00:18:05

ami, Allah says, Those who have virtue and those whom we have given a comfortable life, they must not make customs to say we are not going to spend on the poor. We are not going to spend on our relatives we are not going to spend on those who have done good deeds such as Nigeria in the past, but they must learn to find it in their hearts to forgive. If they would like the forgiveness of Allah. Don't they want to be forgiven by Allah subhanho wa Taala definitely Allah is most forgiving, Most Merciful. Abu Bakr Siddiq are the Allahu anhu when he heard this verse, immediately he compensated for that custom that he had taken. And he began to spend once again forgiving this man

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

to say no problem. Everything is over.

00:18:08--> 00:18:28

Those were the people how many of us with our own family members, brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts in laws and outlaws we are not ready to patch. Why. Here are the verses Allah says, do you want to be forgiven? then learn to forgive others? Because when Allah sees that you have a quality of mercy in you, he will show you that he has the greatest quality of mercy.

00:18:29--> 00:19:07

So we want the mercy of Allah Allah says Allah Subhana Allah Don't you want Allah have mercy on you, so forgive others Allah will forgive you. May Allah make us from amongst those who find it in our hearts to forgive those who have wronged us in the biggest way and inshallah we who have wronged Allah day and night, Allah will definitely find the mercy to forgive us. I mean, then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about those who like to spread gossip and tales with a true or false about immorality amongst the believers for them is a severe punishment. In alladhina Yohane Bona Tashi alpha a Chateau de la de

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

la Hamada bonanni movie dunia

00:19:13--> 00:19:51

those who love to spread the tales of immorality between the believers for them will be a severe punishment in the dunya as well as in the AFI Allah, Allah will disgrace them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us? Do you know that when you talk about someone else, Allah will create someone who will talk about you. When you accuse someone Allah will create someone to accuse you may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding what goes around comes around. We've heard it a million times do we want to wait for it to be tried and tested in our lives before we realize that this is rarely true? It has been tried and tested in the past. It is here in the Quran, Allah

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

subhanho wa Taala tells that to us so we should be good in sha Allah. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the believing males and the believing females and he says

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

Both must lower their gazes.

00:20:03--> 00:20:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala is ruling about lowering the gaze is not only connected to one of the two sexes, it is connected to both and Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter speaks about the beauty of women and Allah says they must not expose it to anyone besides those whom they are allowed to do that too. And the list is in the Quran, where Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us the ability to pick it up and to at least read it. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the beauty of a woman being also in her shoes. Amazing. That is in the Quran. While I have driven abbiamo Julie

00:20:37--> 00:21:20

Nana yo feen Amina Xena teen women must not walk with such a sound of their feet and shoes in a manner that they attract the attention of strange men. Believe me, if you are to read the books that explained the points of attraction, they will tell you that the shoes and the noise that the shoes make, you know a long time ago they had shoes called coach shoes, court shoes and I think they still exist those shoes with a long heel when we were young. We used to think they are called court shoes because the noise they make is caught caught caught caught as the lady walks May Allah protect us that's on a lighter note just to see that everyone is concentrating Mashallah. So, what it is even

00:21:20--> 00:21:45

with our shoes, we must remember we have a duty towards Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we must not be responsible for attracting those whom we are not supposed to be attracting. And when it comes to those, we are supposed to be attracting those who are our spouses. Why do we find ourselves guilty of not doing that then May Allah subhanahu wa taala really grant us the understanding and the ability to adopt his rules for definitely they will bring about happiness in our homes.

00:21:46--> 00:21:53

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about his new and he's he described it so beautifully. Allahu

00:21:57--> 00:21:59

methylone o de kamisha

00:22:11--> 00:22:11

Yo,

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

Z to

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

me,

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

says hoonah No,

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

no,

00:22:35--> 00:23:17

I cannot translate that I won't do justice to it. Well, I that is the nature of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says new upon new, there is no ways we can describe that. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance to see him in Jannah shala because that is the biggest gift that anyone can have is to see their own creator, but not coincidentally, in the same surah Allah describes the darkest point of darkness. In order to give us the comparison, when you want to show someone what is white, to compare it to draw a black line near to say look, that is as white as can be. Allahu Akbar. So Allah wants to show us his light, he shows us what is the darkest creature of his? Where

00:23:17--> 00:23:30

is the darkest point? Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of a verse and let's listen to it carefully, because I'll tell you what they found in recent times, Allah says, describing the deeds of the kuffaar Allah says, oh god, oh my

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

god.

00:23:56--> 00:24:08

Allah says their deeds are like in the deep oceans, those oceans where you have a wave above it, another wave moving in another direction. above it, you have a cloud.

00:24:09--> 00:24:49

Now they have findings quite a long time ago, and I'm sure we all feel it because we are here in Cape Town near the oceans. There in the deep seas, the deep oceans, you have a wave and then you have an undercurrent in the other direction. So you think Mashallah that this wave is going to bring you to show and yet it takes you further inside. I'm sure we've felt that those of us who might have been to the beach including myself, now Allah subhanho, wa Taala, really except us, we've seen this happening and we understand it Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about it in the Quran, the two waves then Allah says in that deep ocean as meaning the further a person goes, he will find darkness on

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

top of darkness. Moments ago. He spoke about noon on top of noon. Now he's speaking about darkness on top of darkness. A few decades ago, one of the universities in the United States did a research

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

They sent people in a submarine going down. And as they went down, they began to write what happened as they went down. And one of the things was at a certain point,

00:25:12--> 00:25:51

the color red suddenly went black, it switched off. At a certain point under the ocean, certain meters, I think it was about 200 meters down, or maybe a little bit more or less, I'm not sure about the exact number, the color red switched off and everything that was red when black literally like someone told the color, you are no longer in existence. After some depth, the color orange went off. And after a depth another color went on until there was a certain depth where all the colors switched off. Do you know in what order the order of the prism, violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, the other way around, all the colors disappeared until it got right to the end. When it

00:25:51--> 00:25:54

got to the end. One of them actually stated you know what I can barely see my hand.

00:25:55--> 00:26:22

I can barely see my hand obviously then with when they use that which was men made such as torches and so on. That was another issue. But when they came up having written all their findings, they uttered their findings to someone and one of them happened to be a Muslim and said Hang on. Here's the Quran, it tells us that the darkest point is in the deepest depths of the oceans where you will find the colors. The Darkness is one on top of the other. Zulu Mata Maha.

00:26:24--> 00:26:48

The Darkness is one on top of the other here it is alized describing the colors that are being darkened one on top of the other and then Allah says woman Lamia, Allahu Allahu Allah who may know if Allah does not want to give light to someone or something. It will never ever have light Allahu Akbar. So this was a very, very interesting finding. And Allah subhanho wa Taala through the miracle of that Quran, there were so many who accepted Islam.

00:26:49--> 00:27:24

And as I said, there are so many things in the Quran, that yet people will find out that this is all the truth. If you read about science and the Quran, inshallah we might go into those topics sometime, someday, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance to do that. It is so amazing how accurate the Quran is when it comes to these items. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about something very interesting after that, speaking about the darkness who are the darkest of the people, they are the ones who Allah has described here in Surah, two new moon when they are Muslims. And then when they have a dispute amongst each other.

00:27:25--> 00:27:43

And they are told, let's engage the Sharia to solve our problems. They say they first look at whether they are going to gain from the Sharia are going to lose. Then suddenly, when they see that they are going to lose they say no ways. We are going to turn away Allah describes these people. Why are coluna Nabila hemodialysis?

00:27:46--> 00:27:47

Sorry,

00:27:48--> 00:27:59

daddy daddy. They say we believe in Allah we believe in the soul and we have adopted Deen we are Muslims. Then they turn away. What do you know in Allah? He was Sunni Leah Kuma Bina whom?

00:28:01--> 00:28:15

Marie boo when they are called to the judgment of the Sharia for their disputes. You find one group from amongst them turning away. Allah says we're in Kula who will have to lie.

00:28:16--> 00:28:54

When they are gaining something from the same Sharia they will be the first ones to say let's go to the Sharia. Let's go to the hola let's go and solve our problems. I hope we are not from amongst those. May Allah make us from amongst those who can surrender to his law and his command. Whether we are gaining or losing we should realize we are actually winning in the eyes of Allah. Allah so Allah subhanho wa Taala describes this in that particular sutra and Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us all then Allah subhanho wa Taala at the end of the surah tells us again, familia, Latina you Holly funan me to see by whom fitna and we'll see by

00:28:55--> 00:29:32

any name, those who go against the command of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which he has brought from Allah, those who want to choose another law besides the Sharia to solve their problems, warn them of a severe punishment in the dunya as well as in the era where Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us, May Allah not test us with those type of tests. Then in the next era, which is suitable for con, that is the surah Allah subhanho wa Taala named it after the criterion, the ability to distinguish between good and bad between right and wrong between good people and bad people and so on. That is another name for the Quran as well. It is known as alpha fun, because it

00:29:32--> 00:29:43

distinguishes between the two. Allah speaks about a few items in that surah Firstly, he speaks about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and what the kuffaar used to say

00:29:44--> 00:29:51

they used to say why is he going to the marketplaces and why is he eating food he's a man like us for what? work on

00:29:54--> 00:29:54

kulu

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

Luna

00:30:01--> 00:30:01

Xena

00:30:07--> 00:30:26

Why is this messenger eating like us and why is he going to the marketplaces Allah should have sent down an angel so that the angel could be with him or he should have had a garden and so on. At the end of that juice Allah subhanho wa Taala tells Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comforting him. Remember yesterday we spoke about how the other messengers were told the same thing.

00:30:27--> 00:30:30

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, on

00:30:32--> 00:30:34

Kabbalah, camino Sani

00:30:37--> 00:30:38

kulu una.

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

Shona feel.

00:30:43--> 00:31:17

Every messenger we have sent before you O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been going to the marketplaces and has also been eating so don't stress about what they are saying. They will continue uttering their words you continue with your message, don't worry about what they are saying Don't be sidetracked. The same applies with us inshallah, whenever we are on a mission that we know is correct to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. Don't worry about those who are laughing at us those who make their statements. So long as we are focused, we will continue the minute we become worried about worried about them, we will lose focus and we will be heading in another direction. May Allah

00:31:17--> 00:31:54

subhanho wa Taala not make us from amongst those at the end of that surah and I'd like everyone, in fact, I'd like to dish out a little bit of homework today inshallah. I'd like everyone to go and pick up the Quran and read at the end of Surah Al Furqan. Allah describes the true worshipers of Allah Who are they? He calls them Mr. Rahman, the worshipers of Allah Do you know we made a such that inshallah, just after that says that Allah describes the Battle of man, the worshipers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now one might ask, why do we make these to do in Salah? Why are they some such does in the Quran, there are a few reasons for it. The first is where Allah has directly commanded

00:31:54--> 00:32:32

the believers oh you who believe prostrate for Allah. So immediately we fall into prostration because we obey the command. The second is, when Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about other creatures whom out of the greatness of Allah, they fell in frustration when we read the verse, we are also one of the creatures we also fall down in frustration. Those are two types of creatures. One, the previous messages the previous worship is how they worship Allah they fell prostrate for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah subhanho wa Taala. As soon as we hear these verses, we fall prostrate for him as well. And the third type of verses when Allah describes those liking

00:32:32--> 00:32:38

tonight's verses, either kilala Hamas Judo manikato Amara,

00:32:39--> 00:33:17

those who refuse to prostrate when Allah His name is mentioned that when Allah talks about those who refuse immediately after that we fall in frustration because we want to prove to Allah that Allah we are not the ones who refuse so these are the reasons why we fall in frustration and that is why you hear generally the Imam goes Allahu Akbar and he goes straight into to do that is because one of these verses have passed. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grounders understanding after that we completed one other sutra known as surah, to show the surah of the poet's poetry was on a very high level at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam very eloquent Arabs. So Allah subhanho

00:33:17--> 00:33:59

wa Taala at the end of the surah describes the poet's and he has categorized the poets. He says, the poets who follows them are those who are astray. But besides those poets who believe in do good deeds, they will use their poetry to serve the oma. What this means is that poets like Abdullayev murabaha Hasani metabones cabnet mnemonic or the Jamia if Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted a poet guidance, that poet will use his poetry to call people towards the end like you hear the Islamic nasheeds and the Islamic songs where they are being called towards Salah towards goodness that is serving this deal. But then you have people who use their ability of poetry to lead people astray,

00:33:59--> 00:34:29

calling them towards haram towards sin in that case, who will follow them besides the sinners that is what is mentioned at the end of the surah that is why it is called surah to Shara and in that surah Allah subhanho wa Taala describes also how the previous nations were treated and how when their messages came to them. They turned against their messages and the message I'm sure we heard it repeating itself in tonight's versus cannabis community more sunny in Canada but

00:34:31--> 00:34:38

Canada better mood more serene cannabis community more serene, Cannabis,

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

Sunny, all these previous nations how they belied their messengers. And Allah says when their messengers told him, for example, at the time of note is a coup de PUE in de la cumbre tsunami, de la de

00:35:02--> 00:35:03

As a newcomer

00:35:04--> 00:35:29

in Nigeria in benign I mean, all the messages uttered the same thing. Look, why don't you follow this message? We are prophets. We don't want any money from you. We don't want any wealth from you. We are expecting nothing in return. We are just warning you but they all rely. So Allah says at the end, we destroyed all of them. And that is why, at the end of every segment Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in a phenolic Allah I

00:35:31--> 00:36:11

mean, we're in Arabic Allahu Allah Zhi Zhu Hakim definitely in the destruction of that nation has been assigned for who for those who believe but many of them don't believe May Allah make us from amongst those who believe. And Allah says definitely, your hub is most powerful, Most Merciful. Why most powerful, Most Merciful because a person who can execute his anger and destroy someone and still forgives that one that is true mercy but when you forgive someone because you know that person is too big you have to you force to forgive them. If you don't say I forgive you their best you have even more in that case, that is an extracted forgiveness. It doesn't show your power and your

00:36:11--> 00:36:16

clemency but where you know there is a little child. So so

00:36:18--> 00:36:23

innocent and so small, so young, so vulnerable, and you still say You know what? No problem. Nevermind, carry on.

00:36:24--> 00:36:36

Now lawmakers from amongst those who can have that quality in us and May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept us on this even forgive us all right, sallAllahu wasallam, Allah Baraka, Allah Subhana, Allah Subhana Allah home will be having the Ganesha to Allah Allah
