Isa alayhis salam, Jesus peace be upon him.
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam
ala nabina Muhammad Allah Allah Allah He was happy he would have been a woman who humbly son Elijah Medina Baba. All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless his wives to bless his family members to bless all his companions to bless every single one of us and to grant us all every form of goodness. This evening inshallah I will commence by thanking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for giving us this opportunity for using us to spread the word for using us to engage in acts of worship during the month of Ramadan May Allah accepted from every one of us.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept the fasting we've engaged in the Torah we've engaged in the charities we may have given an all the good deeds we have engaged in the month of Ramadan. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive our shortcomings May he make us from those who can regret over our sin. And may He make us from those who can turn a new leaf and start on a new page with a new sheet as clean as ever for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. With that, I also would like to thank this Masjid who has invited me to come and render this taraweeh as well as the talks that have been taking place throughout the month of Ramadan. May Allah make this a means of entry into Jana for all
of us. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted from all one and all shares has definitely spoken. As I said, we would like Allah subhanho wa Taala to be pleased with us if that has happened, there is nothing more than that we want and the committee members as well as the others who are responsible for the masjid, the masala is everyone else the brothers, the sound and the all the others who are involved you know, as well as those brothers outside with the traffic and so on. Everyone who made an effort to come May Allah reward us abundantly. There is nothing we can do to repay anyone It is only Allah who can repay. So this is why we don't expect something from anyone
besides a good to ask Allah acceptance and to ask Allah to grant this gentleman be pleased with us.
I would like to dive straight into the topic because I'd like to end the hour and inshallah we hope and pray that we can benefit we want to cover quite a bit of ground this evening. We are talking about the Prophet Jesus May peace be upon him. The reason why I say it in the English language is because many people who do not know the Arabic term need to know what we believe about the Prophet Jesus May peace be upon him, Isa alayhi salatu salam, the Quran has mentioned or named several sutras after either the mother who was Mary May peace be upon her of Jesus is le Salam or the family known as Allah in Milan. And in fact, there is another surah known as Alma ADA, which means the lay
table and that laid tablecloth is connected to what is alley salatu salam brought from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So there are many such sutras in the Quran and chapters in the Quran. We need to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala that He has given us the truth.
We would also like to mention what we spoke about yesterday, Allah subhanho wa Taala prepared the mother of Jesus May peace be upon him very, very carefully. Allah subhanho wa Taala prepared her by her prior to her birth, being dedicated by her mother for the place of worship, and for ensuring that she will be dedicated. She had made this promise to Allah subhanho wa Taala not knowing that she was burying a female child. But when the female child came, they fulfilled the promise. She was born an orphan, meaning the father and Moran, who was a very, very pious man had passed away. And Emraan had a record for being a very, very upright man, a very, very good shape. He used to lead the
people in prayers and so on, and on.
Hana what Allah says that Zakaria, who is the uncle of Maria or Mary May peace be upon him was the one who brought her up and he was responsible. And we learned yesterday about the life of Zakaria and what happened. As a result, she was also a very, very pious girl. She grew up Allah gave her lots of wisdom, lots of knowledge, she learned under the tutorship of zaccaria Allah His salatu salam.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about various miracles that occurred when she was still very young, as she was being prepared for something very, very great to happen. One of the greatest miracles of all time, was to happen to Mary May peace be upon her Maria Maria salatu salam, O Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about what happened. What even call it mela Inca Julia Maria mo in a longhouse. Welcome to hell monkey was
me earlier, when she was still quite young growing up Allah subhanho wa Taala sent a message to her via the angels. And the angels told her Oh Miriam, Allah has chosen you purified you from all polytheism Allah has made you one who will worship Him alone. So you are pure in every way purified in your reputation purified in your character and conduct but above all purified in your worship, it will not be rendered for anyone besides your maker. And Allah has chosen you above all the women of your time Subhanallah
Yeah, Maria mukono genium Miki was Judy Wonka email me therefore, oh, Maria. We want to inform you and instruct you submit unto Allah open Otilia bakey, submit for your own rub the one who made you and find yourself from the ones who bow down and from the ones who are prostrate solely to their maker.
So Allah says that he came in.
He knew he like oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is the news and the information of the unseen that we are giving you. We are telling you the true version of the story of Mary and Jesus and Zakaria and john and so of them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them all.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, After some time, she continued to worship Allah, and she was very pious, and she had her place of worship within a place of worship her own corner and cubicle. She had a cubicle in the sense that there was a partition between her and those who would come from her members of her family. She was in her own corner. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, thereafter, we called out to her again. In fact, in one place, Allah Subhana Allah says, In surah, Maria, what corofin kita be memorium even Tibet min and Leah Makana Chavo Pena. And remember, in the book, The story of Mary, may peace be upon her Maria Maria Salatu was Salam. When she took a place for her own
worship within the place of worship. She had her own cubicle towards the west, it was sorry, it was facing the east. It was facing the East mccannon champion. It was a place facing the East so she had a little corner by the Eastern window. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, For
him, he Jabba she had had a hijab or a curtain between her and her family members. She was worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala. Her family members on the other side, as we know we have cubicles sometimes in the corners of the massage where people want to engage in a decaf and they want to spend time dedicated to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah says she had had her place for Otto Selma la Oh Hannah Fatima Salalah habashi
we sent the angel jabril or the Archangel Gabriel to her in the form of a handsome looking man, and he went into her cubicle immediately. She uttered words of protection from Allah subhanho wa Taala. from anything mysterious. Carla Karla, in the OB Rockman immune in Kuta taenia. She says, I seek protection in Allah from you. So if you are intelligent, if you are fearful of Allah subhanho wa Taala you will understand that I have sought the protection of the maker and the Creator. Don't harm me.
Immediately gibreel alayhi salatu was Salam says Allah in
And also Nora big Lee I have a liking hula zakia I am the angel from your Rob I have come to give you good news that you shall be a child who will be very pure.
She had this news. Now she is shocked she's surprised she is still listening to the information. Let's look at how it was worded in another place in the Quran. Surah Allah Imran Allah subhanho wa Taala says he will call it mela in Catalunya momoyama in LA you obey she woke up Kalamata
mean, when the angels told Maria marry the daughter of Mr. Owen that Allah is giving you glad tidings of a word from him. What is that word? We spoke about it yesterday. Couldn't be and it will be the word is calf and noon we said yesterday a marovo vinyl cafe when noon the instruction of Allah is between a calf and the noon. Once those words are uttered Be it automatically is so we are giving you good news of a word from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And it will be assigned, they will be a child. We are naming him from now. So she is being told this already. While she's sitting in her own seclusion. Allah subhanho wa Taala says is mole messy who is Ave Maria mala Ji
amin al mukalla been his name shall be the Christ. Isa Jesus May peace be upon him the son of Mary he will be known as the son of a female. All of us here we are known as the son of a male in the sense that you are called Abdullah Your father is Abdur Rahman. You are Abdullah bin Abdul Rahman. You are Abdullah the son of AB Rahman. However, when it comes to Isa, he was known by his mother's name, he is the son of Mary.
Amazing, she's listening. She's obviously in all she is trying to digest. She knew that Alice preparing her for something great, but she is getting the information. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says he will be honored which he hadn't done yet. He will be honored in this world as well as in the next very honored man.
Woman Allah mocha carabin and he will be from amongst those very close to Allah in the life after in the sense that in the ashira he will also be very, very close to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So this boy, this child that is going to come to you on it and very close to Allah subhanho wa Taala what you can
do Kahala wamena solly he and he will be speaking to people from the cradle so she is being told this already in advance.
He will be speaking to people from the cradle as well as later on when he is aged.
When you can Lehman
de Vaca hola Amina Sani hain and he is from amongst those who will be pious he will be very pious. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Maria Maria salatu wa sallam, she heard this news.
And she understood it very carefully. Before she knew it already gibreel alayhis salam had blown. What Allah subhanho wa Taala had instructed him to blow and she was already she had conceived. She already had the child in his in her belly in her womb. Now she is surprised. Firstly, she is clean. She's a virgin, not married in any way. No form of mischievious she was never ever immortal. immodest. Not at all. She was dedicated. She barely came out of the place of worship, unless for necessity. And now she's being told this is what is going to happen. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, amazingly, Carla
Cooney Guna Muallem em says me
How can I bear a child when no man has touched me?
And I am not from amongst those who are unchaste I've never done anything wrong, immoral, unacceptable. I have maintained the purity of the highest level and you are telling me that I am going to bear a child.
The response came Karla katha Nikki Kala buki Wailea Hainan one Lena Jalla
Nancy Mata min. The response came, that is it it is declared and decree and it is a sign from Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is very, very easy for your Creator who has created to do this and we will make him
Assign for entire mankind. Let us suppose there for a moment, the circle of creation and the quota and power of the Creator was being closed. What do we mean? Allah has created without the involvement of a male or a female such as Adam, the first human being was Adam May peace be upon him, there was no male involved no female involved, Allah said Be and he was created from dust soil, and created by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Thereafter, the second probability, Allah created through a male without the involvement of a female, who was created in that way. However, Eve May peace be upon her through a male, no involvement of female, then there was every one of us after those two,
everyone who came thereafter they were created via male and female, that's the third probability. There's one more left to close the circle to show you the power of Allah. What is that to create via a female without the involvement of a male? Allah left it for the time when he saw a salon was sent. The Prophet Jesus May peace be upon him. He was that miracle of Allah subhanho wa Taala created with no involvement of a male, not that he was the son of Allah, Allah. Allah forbid. He was not the Son of God but he was a creature created miraculously by the word of Allah. What was that word? Allah said Be and he was just like Adam was created before Allah says in the Quran, in masala is
he Kamata Li Adam Hanako Torah from Allah who can fire
the example of Jesus is just like the example of Adam for Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah created Adam with some dust or some soil, and he said Be and he was, so Allah did the same with Jesus May peace be upon him, he said Be and he was so easily Salam began to grow in the womb of his mother. And his mother is now pondering and thinking and concern. She's been given good news. He's going to be pious, he's going to be good. He's going to learn, he's going to teach, he's going to have revelation, he's going to guide the people he will be able to speak and unlike gave this news and information to the mother prior to the birth, she already knew this. And he is going to be able to
speak to people from the cradle as well as later on. So from the very early days, he was going to be able to speak to people. Now Maria Molly has salatu wa salam O Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this analysis.
For harmala rufen Tabatha v McCann
she held this child
to his place a little bit of a distance from where she was she was in Jerusalem, she decided to go to Bethlehem, Bethlehem, she decided to go to Bethlehem. And when she got there, she was busy preparing she was seeing thinking she was worried. She was very worried. Why was she worried? One is she knows she is pure. She is clean. On one hand to deliver is a very big, worry, tension. The secret is Don't worry. That's the secret but who doesn't worry. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for all our women for
the second concern, I'm going to take this child how will people receive this child? I've been given responses answers. I've been told who he is I know everything but these people will accuse me they'll accuse the child they might decide to do something against the child what will happen all this worry. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says
attorney me to Kabbalah
the pains of childbirth drove her to the stamp of or to a trunk of a date tree. So the date bomb the trunk of it, she had got to it and she's holding it due to the pain of childbirth. And she is hoping to herself saying to herself, I wish I was dead before this and long forgotten
because she is worried. She doesn't want to go against the decree of Allah. Not at all but she is wishing it's going to be so difficult. I wish I would have dead and I wish I was forgotten and I wish this did not happen to me. So immediately, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Fernanda
ha, he called from beneath. Now the question is Who called? One of two, either by the time she was holding this
trunk as support, she gave birth and the child spoke. Now this is also mentioned in some of the books have seen some of them have a Syrian say the child can this is sounds very correct in the sense that it sounds very accurate but there is another opinion that it was the angel that spoke either way it is a message from Allah. So I the way it is a message from Allah I feel that the more correct opinion is, she had given birth as she had held support on that particular stump and the child as the child was now beneath.
The child called out for nada nada in the Arabic language means one male is calling he call who call possibly the child and Latin Zani Do not worry, do not fear. Don't worry. Khadija Allah boom kita Takis area, just look beneath you. Allah has caused the spring of water to Gosh.
Now this was a desert. There was no water.
She needed something to drink. She was on her own delivery, no support besides that of Allah which was more than enough. And she had this stump that she was holding on to a trunk of a date palm
oil Allah says we've made water for you here just take a look. And not only will we give you a drink miraculously today or marry, but we are going to give you also a fresh date. Rich in mineral and vitamin
to this day. If you have the fresh date, childbirth post childbirth,
or even before it is very very healthy, rich in iron they say the breast milk of a woman one thing it lacks is iron doesn't have enough. Well you have lots of dates love about something that is amazing from the date is reaching I'm sure we know that. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, who is z like a big
shake this date shrunk a little bit the trunk of the date bomb, shake it a bit to start a
journey. Yeah, the beautiful dates, fresh dates will drop feghouli wasabi acari
so eat and drink as much as you want and thank Allah be happy and be glad. This is the miracle.
And over and above that it's either the child who's speaking or the message of Allah, the child is saying
I mean by Sharia, Haida sakuni Nina D'Antoni Rahmani Salma Phelan can Lima numa,
senior, whenever you see a human being,
tell them I have promised Allah and made a vow that I'm not going to speak to any human being. So don't talk today on that particular day. I'm not going to talk today.
So as she went out, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah says,
me coma. Mila, she now arrived, it was late afternoon when she arrived with the child back to her people going back into the place where she was in seclusion, holding the child at her chest, and walking very carefully, very, very calm, relaxed, her face was beaming with light. And she was looking very happy. Normally, when a person has committed a sin, they very sad they don't want anyone to know. She is holding the child covering the child very well. The people began to see and started saying, isn't that the Mary who's supposed to be in the place of worship? Isn't she the one who's supposed to be the pious? Isn't she the one who is the descendant of the Prophet Harun? The
word Harun is used. It's either referring to some pious person in the community. So they used to call her the sister of a heroine because they were someone known as heroine who was also very pious, and she was also very pious. So they say, sister of her, oh, oh, what is more correct. She was from the lineage of the Prophet Harun who was also from Israel.
And because he was so pious, and she had his blood in her being from his lineage, they always reminded her, you are from the family of such a pious men. Your mother is pious, your father is pious, your generations your grandfather's he dates back all the way to her own. So Allah says, Carlo, Maria munakata ji, Tisha feria. Oh Mary, you have come up with something very, very grave. Very, very uncommon, unprecedented, something very dangerous and detrimental. something huge. What is this all about? Yeah, of Tarragona. Oh, sister of heroin. I explained who is the heroine one of the two
Oh sister of such a pious man, a person who is from the lineage of the Prophet Harun.
Your father never engaged in adultery. He was a very, very pious man. Your mother never engaged in adultery. Your father did not commit sin like this. What is this all about? Now this was an accusation of adultery and accusation of
engaging in illicit
activity. How did you start? How did you become pregnant? How did you get this child? They all asking they accusing who were the people at the time. They were Jewish people in the sense that they were been to Israel, the children of Israel, Israel was Jaco Jacob the Prophet Jacob was known as Israel. So these are the children of Jacob. Jesus was sent to the children of Jacob, he was sent to Israel, the children of Israel, as it is known. So these were the people around accusing the mother telling her, you have committed a very, very grave sin. Your father wasn't like this. Your mother wasn't like this.
I shot in a new child is going to speak Subhanallah I don't need to say anything today. So when she pointed to him, they looked at her. They realize she doesn't want to talk. She's now pointing at the child. Is she foolish? Carlo caveman who can name a woman can have the salvinia. They said how can we speak to a child in a cradle here? Imagine a newborn baby you want to talk to a baby? And as they were in this discussion, and they were talking to each other and talking to her and telling her how foolish are you? You want us to talk a baby to a baby they heard the baby say in the law.
I am the worshipper of Allah, the slave of Allah.
Athenaeum kita Baba Jelani nebia Allah has given me the book of Revelation, and he has made me a profit. Imagine a little child talking.
Baby speaking what Jelani Mubarak and Nina Makoto and Allah has blessed me wherever I go, it is blessed.
Well, Sonia Salatu was Nakajima.
For as long as I live, Allah has instructed me to engage in prayer and to give out charity to be very charitable. May Allah make a steadfast with our prayer, no charities, and May he accept that from us as well.
Well, Baran, be wildly dainty, and he has instructed me to be obedient to my mother, Allahu Akbar. Here you have the role of the mother once again, this was special. But that rule applies to all of us, for our mothers and our fathers. Sometimes some people neglect the mother, some people neglect the Father. Remember,
we need to respect both parents, we need to understand their roles and we need to know that they are priority in our lives and we ask Allah to make us parents whom our children can look up to as role models.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Be Wiley. Dottie, what am IA Johnny?
He has instructed me to be obedient,
to be dutiful unto my mother, there was no father involved. That's why Allah says my mother, and he has not made me from amongst the sinful and he has not made me from amongst those who are unfortunate.
What Salah mala Yama only to Wyoming ammo to Wyoming
and peace be upon me. Child is still speaking so panela these people are baffled. They are gobsmacked to use the right term. Don't know what to say. Silent, just watching. He's saying, may peace be upon me. The day I was born, the day I shall die. The day I will be resurrected. May the peace of Allah be upon me. He is speaking.
They are shocked. So how do they react? These were priests. These were rabbis. These were people who used to teach the religion watching. They had just accused someone of adultery and what happened as they are watching. They are looking, they are hearing there is no ways this is magic. There is no ways this is anything but a miracle. There is no ways this is anything but a sign from Allah the Creator. It is miraculous. They know the piety of this woman. They know the family, they know everything they can see she's not worried. They can see the miracle child, they can see everything. But they are worried that if we now acknowledge this child, they are thinking future, this child is
going to take the carpet from beneath our feet, pull it and what will happen, we won't have leadership anymore. Nobody's gonna follow us anymore. People will now follow him. He is going to be the boss. He's going to be above us. The best thing for us to do is from now, let us
Fighting from that stage. So they continue. No, we're not interested. We would like to you to understand this is a sin. You have committed immorality, you've come with a child, this child is illegal, illegitimate. So this is what the Jewish people had said. And the Quran makes mention of this, they continued accusing Miriam. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says we purified her, she was pure.
And they continued accusing In the meantime, she had gone back to the place of worship and mentioned is not made of the detail of how the child grew up but the child grew up and later on Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about what happened to his Allah His Salaam before we get there, let's make mention of something important.
There are people whom Allah subhanho wa Taala says, have started calling this young boy, the Son of God.
Why was this? This was because they didn't see the Father. To them, there was no father. So when they were told, this is the this is a miracle from Allah. They said, well, that is the son of Allah. And they started saying this is the son of Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, ma can Allah,
Allah de ne it is not befitting for the Creator, to take a son to have a begotten son. It is blessed for him to relate to the Creator, who only needs to save be and anything he wants to make is created automatically. It is blasphemous, to relate to him to say he has a big gotten sun, may Allah safeguard us from such blasphemy. Now.
So in Islam, we believe to say that the God Almighty has a son is blasphemous. The Quran speaks about how sick that blasphemy is. And the Quran says
la Manuela de la casa
de la money.
How can they say that Allah the Most Merciful has a son. And it is not befitting for the most merciful to have a son Allah says, Taka
me know what shall go What?
This statement is so blasphemous that the skies want to tear apart
and the earth
wants to explode.
And the mountains want to fall prostrate to Allah subhanho wa Taala because of the severity and seriousness of such a dangerous statement against the maker himself. So even the creation of Allah are
bearing witness that Allah subhanho wa Taala has not taken the sun. And they are agitated at the fact that people are saying this. Yes, he did not have a father. But Adam neither had a father nor a mother. And Eve neither had meaning Eve did not have a mother meaning you we cannot even call Adam the Father. She was also created miraculously. And when it comes to Jesus May peace be upon him he did not have a father. That's what the Quran says. But you cannot say the son of Allah and the big button. The word beget is so blasphemous. If you have to check the meaning of it in the Oxford Dictionary, you'd probably hide your face. Now Allah protect us how can we say that for the maker of
the universe? He doesn't need that. He is powerful. We believe the maker only needs to say be and it is May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness. So this is a very powerful statement. Allah says as this child grew, when you only Mohan kita, well, hc Mehta, what
are the same things Allah had promised the mother he got, what did he get? Al Kitab. He got the book, The revelation. And hc Mehta, Allah gave him wisdom and Allah gave him Prophethood and Allah gave him the Torah he knew the Torah of my heart. Remember he met the Prophet john May peace be upon him yeah and he Salam It is reported that there was a discussion between the two of them at one stage and he said a Salaam Jesus May peace be upon him tells ya here in one duration, that you should pray for me. So john, yeah, hey, Sam says to him, that no, you should pray for me. So he says, No, you are better than me. He says, What do you mean I'm better than you?
So yeah, here or john May peace be upon him says to Isa or to Jesus yet, he says, You declared peace upon yourself. The Creator declared peace upon you. And you said, may peace be upon me and in my case,
Allah is saying, that may peace be upon him. So it goes back to Isa Jesus May peace be upon him. He says, well, in your case, Allah declared the peace in my case I declared it myself. So this was just a discussion, because yeah The same thing happened. He also Allah subhanho wa Taala says we granted him as a child to zecharia after a long time, remember these two were cousins.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, that we have blessed him we have granted him peace and Salaam and so on. And this in the case of East LA Salaam, he speaks about himself, I am blessing I am the one who shall remain in peace and so on. So Allah subhanho wa Taala very interestingly uses the word salam, Salam refers to peace. And we all use that term as well may peace be upon you. We use the word Assalamu alaykum May peace be upon all of us. That is the word we normally use. And the piece also means no harm shall reach him. We're going to need that. In a few moments when we come to how they try to murder him.
No harm shall reach Jesus, not at all. He is a miracle of Allah. He's the word of Allah, the roof, the soul was blown by the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
he got the Torah he got the goodness, he started preaching. And as he started preaching, he always told the people in Allah hora be
our maker, the one we worship, the Supreme. Allah is the one who made us. He is my Rob, and he is your maker, your maker, the one who protects me the one who protects you, the one who provides for me, the one who provides for you so worship Him alone and nobody else. This was the message of Jesus. May Allah subhanho wa Taala peace be upon him, and may peace be upon all of us as well.
So when we worship, who do we worship, and this is the beauty of Islam, we say Islam is a religion that has no risk. We do not worship a person, nor do we worship a stone, nor do we worship a stick, nor do we worship a prophet, nor do we worship a grave nothing. We worship who ever made me that's who I worship. That is what all the messengers said, we need to turn the pages of the Quran we will shiver when we come to see, every messenger came with exactly the same message when it comes to belief.
The belief was all the same, they taught worship the one who made you no one else. So when we Muslims when we bow down, or we put our heads on the ground, a lot of people think we might be worshipping a black box in Mecca. Some people think we worshipping the Prophet Mohammed, some people think we worshipping this and that no, we are worshipping the one who made us that is the one for whom I put my head on the ground. This is why Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world.
Because everyone is fed up of worshipping things of worshipping wealth worshipping people going through Allah via the priest and via the church and via this and via a person and via someone else who's an archbishop or whoever else in Islam. No confession to nobody you confess to your maker in the darkest hour of the night. Oh my maker I have done wrong. I admit my error. I regret it. I seek your forgiveness and I won't do it again. Those four conditions your sin is wiped out. May Allah wipe out our sins
Allahumma inaka foon to hit Bulava. O Allah you are most forgiving you love to forgive so forgive us. That is a powerful tool we should be making on a night like this. This might be the last taraweeh that we witnessed of the month of Ramadan if we happen to see the moon tomorrow.
So it is important for us to know that Islam is a religion that is a straight even straighter than a pin if I can read it that way. No risk involved. We put our head on the ground for who we say whoever made me you you are owed my whole life whoever I'm going to return to have mercy on me when I returned to you when you are sick owner of cure cure me Subhana Allah what Liske is the owner of cure cure you. You want to call out all you who hears the prayers of those who call out to Him hear me? What risk is involved nothing at all, the maker of the universe, the creator, the one who made me and you This is Sound intellect if you are intelligent, you know, I want to pause for a moment
Khalid milliliter of the Allahu anhu was a powerful warrior at the time of Muhammad salallahu alayhi wasallam most of the wars he took part in he won. And there was a time he was not a Muslim, but he was very intelligent. And he caused a lot of upsets when it comes to the the wars with the Muslims at the time when he was not a Muslim.
So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam calls his brother one day in Medina and says Oh brother have
were discarded. And he explains Look, he is there and so on. One statement I want to share with you Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, mommy philokalia Johannes Lama. It is impossible for a person of the intellect of highly dependent only to be ignorant of the fact that Islam is correct. Yeah, TB Allah, Allah will bring him and it is reported that no sooner was that statement uttered. And Holly the newly entered Madina, munawwara and he comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seeking forgiveness and saying Yeah, Rasul Allah, I would like to enter the fold of Islam, but I'm worried about the damage that I have done. So I am worried about all the sins I've committed
and all the damage I have done. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Yeah, Khalid in Islam, Maya Juma kubla. Oh, Khalid I want to tell you Islam deletes everything that happened before it. So whatever sins you've committed in the past, they are wiped out deleted new slate new sheet. Not only that, we are taught that Toba does the same thing for you may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a new beginning. And the beauty of it, it takes the good deeds with it only deletes the bad deeds. So it is selective formatting, not just formatting the hard drive, selective formatting.
May Allah open our drives Sharla
clear them for us completely.
So we have a Salah in salatu salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala says he began to call the people he was so compassionate, he was such a beautiful man, he was so loving, he spoke to people with so much love and passion, he really wanted them to earn paradise, and he was such a beautiful human being. Not only was he a person who was very good looking, but at the same time, calm, relaxed individual with qualities that was super SubhanAllah.
And he was brought up in a beautiful, fantastic manner with the Torah. And on top of it, Allah revealed the Injeel to him the Injeel, meaning the Bible was revealed to Isa, we know that the Bibles that are in the hands of the people today, they themselves are disputing as to which is the correct version. So I normally say, please solve your mess and your problem amongst yourselves. When you have one version come to us. We will then look into it. But until the time you don't have one version, how can you come and preach it to us? We have one plan, no two versions, we are preaching it to you. We stand on a higher position. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness we believe
in Jesus. You cannot be a Muslim if you don't believe in Jesus May peace be upon him. But we believe the truth we don't bless him anyway. I made mention of it yesterday and the previous day, the minute you hear a narration blaspheming any messenger of Allah you throw it out of the window, we don't need it. We don't want it we don't even want to hear it. No matter where it has come from. Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, phylum has
come from Allah man oh sorry in a lot.
When he saw a solemn notice that these people are all disbelieving, no one wants to accept my message. he uttered the word he asked the question, Who is going to be from amongst the helpers of Allah who wants to help the cause of their maker. So they were a certain number of people, some durations, say 17 people, but the bulk of narration saying they were 12 people who came forward and they said, Allah says Allah, how are you gonna know? sobre la, Nebula?
Muslim moon, the How are you? The disciples?
There was a certain number of men I told you the most correct opinion they were 12.
The Quran says they came up and they said we believe in Allah, we will assist the cause. You write our names of bear witness that we are from amongst those who are submitted unto our maker and creator. Never did Jesus May peace be upon him call anybody to worship Him. He always said worship the maker who made you and he always came up with the statements that were very clear cut, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us a deeper understanding.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of some of the miracles that were granted to the Prophet Jesus May peace be upon him. What were these miracles? Allah says, what a soul and in agony is Salah ina and Allah subhanho wa Taala sent him as a messenger to Israel, Israel, meaning the Jewish people. When he came the split into two, there was a group that accepted him as a messenger
and the group that rejected him as a messenger and they began or they continued to say that this is an illegitimate child born outside of wedlock, may Allah protect us. So those who accepted his message were known as NASA, NASA, meaning Christians, those who accepted Jesus Christ
Those who did not they remain the Jewish. But according to us, the profit of the time is who you are supposed to be behind. So if we were alive at the time of Jesus, what were we supposed to have been followers of Jesus? If we were alive at the time of Moses, may peace be upon him, who are we supposed to have followed? Prophet Moses? And if we are now here at the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, who are we supposed to be following? Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So we have Moosa, we have Isa and we have Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May peace be upon all of them. But the Jews stuff at musala is at the peak of their era was the time of Solomon. Suleiman
Allah is Allah the Quran speaks about it. We spoke about it to here a few days ago. And when it comes to the Christians the peak of their era was the time of Jesus he Sally Salaam, they don't accept any messenger thereafter, they say he was now the villa God or the Son of God or a party or part of a trinity. Islam rejects all that Islam says no, he was an upright messenger who came with miracles from Allah subhanho wa Taala. His birth was a miracle. And at that time, there was medicine was at its peak. medicine was at its peak. So what happened? You find many people who were sick, and the doctors came in and the doctors were regarded as top people who could cure but there were
certain sicknesses that could not be cured. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
He Salah is Allah salon came with the following miracles and knee up lobola coming up cleaning it
He said, he said, I'm speaking when he was a child, but it happened later on. He made a bird like statue of clay and blue in it suddenly developed wings and flew off as a real bird. That's what the Quran says. That was a miracle given to the Prophet Isa Jesus made peace be upon him. He would make something out of clay image of a bird blow into it would fly off as a real bird.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says
Annie of Nicola comin up teeny
query for Sophie
Neela. Well, OBD
isn't in. Three things are mentioned in this part of the verse. He was given the miracle by the power of Allah, this is not him. He says, This is done by the leave of Allah by the permission of Allah, Allah gives all the prophets whatever they had was from Allah by the permission of Allah subhana wa Taala. So he says, Allah gave me the permission to do this to a bird. Secondly, those who are born blind.
When he wiped his hand over their eyes, rubbed slightly, they began to see they opened their eyes. This was not we spoke about miracles a few days ago, of nowadays, where people use the gym to cure people. This was a miracle of a prophet. There is a difference between the miracle of a prophet and something that is unacceptable. May Allah subhanahu wa taala, grant us light so that we can see and May Allah grant us eyesight, some people have sight, but they don't see the signs of Allah, they are blinded to them. So here Allah is saying, he had this miracle, Jesus May peace be upon him could cure people who are born blind, that is what the Quran says. And the Quran says over and above that,
when people had the disease of leprosy, the lepers he would touch them, and they would be cured their skin would return as pure as ever as clean as healthy as ever. And on top of that, one of the biggest miracles that he had, after a person had died,
he could go there and bring them back to life by the will of Allah.
And this is mentioned in the Quran. And he says, it is not from me, it is from my maker, la kabara. This is given to me by the power of Allah. Why? Because the doctors used to say that they can prolong the life of people. So Allah says, hang on, you think you can prolong the life of people, let them die, we will bring them back to life. Subhana Allah, so he was one step higher. And this is why we mentioned the miracle of Musa alayhis salam, the Prophet Moses when he put his stick, and when those who put their robes they knew that this is something that is from the Creator. It's not magic, in the same way here on those who wanted to see they knew this is not medicine. This is no
joke. This is no coincidence. This is something from the maker himself. Nobody can give life to the dead besides Allah subhanho wa Taala
So this these were some of the miracles that happened. He Salli salatu salam. Now let's get to
another point. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, that is Ali salam, Jesus made peace be upon him instructed his disciples to fast for a month
and they fasted and when they fasted they now said, you know we all have fasted Mashallah for a month. And we all would like goodness Allah says, well, it took me Lola, it only took up boo La la la, la la la come to school, you finish the prescribed time. You praise Allah declare his greatness for what he has given you. Thank Allah subhanho wa Taala. And in order that you may be thankful Allah has given you the day of eat. The day of eat is a day of happiness. So here, the disciples asked him, listen to what Allah says. If Carla and I are in Santa Maria heliski, Aurora, Boca, De La Nina, Xena, Mina sama.
Oh Jesus or Isa, we want you to bring forth Is it possible for your job to bring forth a lay tablecloth, a laid table cloth from heaven for us?
We fasted the whole month now we need something from Allah. So it's Allah. Allah says he said, kala Takuma
meanie be fearful of Allah if you are true believers. be fearful of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They continue to ask him they say no, no, no, we don't mean that we are believers. But we would like it for a reason. Here's the reason. Carlo norito an akula minha. We want to eat from it. Some food from heaven, we want to eat from it. Carlos de la mina de tomar una
casa de putana one akuna la mina shahidi. So they said we want to eat from it. We want our hearts to be more at ease that really it is true. That what we have asked you you have brought it for us we will believe we will be the witnesses and so on. Now it is reported that some of these disciples, their belief within their heart was not very strong. They were still a little bit shaky because the whole community was against them.
And the community didn't want a lot of them were on the side of those who had rejected the Prophet Jesus May peace be upon him. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in fact these people continued
Kala in seven Omar Yama la humara bana Zilla Allah in Amma
Amina sama takuna Nina, Nina mukha
is an A Salah made Jesus May peace be upon him sophisticated he's created and he says oh my maker, send for us a lay tablecloth of food, so that it can come to us as a point of happiness, a day of joy, so that the first and the last of us can all eat from it, let it be assigned and it will be assigned for those who are here. So Allah Subhana Allah says,
Allah Allah who in nimona zillo high income, okay I'm sending it to you here it comes Subhana Allah the tablecloth. Allah says we have laid it completely and we sending it down
for my fallback don't come for
me, if after I send that laid tablecloth and you have all enjoyed the food and seen what it was all about, then if anyone's still this believes I will punish him a severe punishment let him know that.
So Allah sent the late tablecloth Mashallah It is reported that they ate whether or not it was the Last Supper, Allah knows best, but they ate you know, in the testaments, they speak of a last supper whether or not it was that Allah knows best, but they ate and it is reported that so many people ate the food was not depleted. This was a sign it was a miracle 1000s of people according to some narrations, and Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of this in the Quran.
Now, after this, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of something that happened to the Prophet Jesus May peace be upon him. The people began to get fed up of him because he was taking away their popularity. Those who were supposedly religious, those who had followers, their followers were now slowly talking about this messenger who came with this miracle that miracle he was the talk of the town
that created general
In the hearts of some of these people who had rejected him, so they hatched a plan, what was the plan?
They went to the king of the time.
And they told him, there is a man called Jesus of Bethlehem, this Jesus, he sallallahu sallam, he is saying this and saying that, and he's eyes on your kingdom, he wants your seat. In fact, he is going around saying he is the king. Now, this is blasphemy. This is incorrect. Lies, jealousy, a plan and a ploy, this king without finding anything out nothing at all. He decides, we can sort him out by doing what, sit down and look for him. Now, I have not made mention of all the difficulties suffered by Jesus, we have not gone into those details where the people made him suffer, but he was calm. He was very, very calm, very forgiving. He never wanted to revenge anybody, no one not at all. He just
continued with his work. And he was always positive, not negative. And every time there was an opportunity to call people towards the Almighty, he used it. And he was very patient and calm. And they began to say, Oh, this is what a wonderful man and so on. But the others who had this believing they fell to this plot. So when the people came, they wanted to know where is Jesus? He was nowhere to be found. Where is he? We want to know. Now the disciples knew where he was.
And I mentioned to you one of the disciples knew where he was, there was one of the disciples. The name given is Judas Iscariot. Allah knows best who exactly he was, but one of the disciples, and he decided to become a traitor. In fact, shape and overtook him, the devil overtook him. And he led the men of this king and the Jewish people who are behind wanting to murder Jesus May peace be upon him, to the room where he was. And there was a little window.
So as this one man goes in to confirm that Jesus is in the room, who was he, he was the disciple, they sent him in you go and confirm that he is in the room. They will he this man goes into the room, and he is now a traitor. yet he's supposed to be a disciple. He goes into the room. And he is asking is Allah He, salam, he's just confirming that he's there. And at that moment, Allah subhanho wa Taala, changed the face of Judas. So it became the face of Jesus. And Allah took Jesus away through that window gone up into the heavens, in the proper form of the human being that he was taken up ascension of Jesus. This is the Islamic version of the Quran. He was taken up completely
Well, before anybody could harm him. Allah says at the beginning was Salam O Allah. Yeah, peace be upon me. They won't harm me at all, nothing. So Jesus Christ may peace be upon him was not harmed at all, nothing. He was taken up. And the face of this traitor was made to be the face of Jesus. So now he was taking long to come out a little while later he comes out these people are looking, they see Jesus, they go and hold him. He says, Hey, I am Judas. No ways. So if you are Judas, where is Jesus? And if you are Jesus, where is Judas, they went back in. So they didn't know they were also a little bit confused, but facially they knew this is Jesus. And this man is continuing to say, I am not
Jesus, I am Judas, they took him, they put a huge cross for him. They nailed him into the cross. And according to one narration, they took a crown of forms as a means of disgrace for him, and they placed it on his head, and they were happy telling everyone we have crucified Jesus, but Allah knows Jesus was taken well before anybody could harm him.
no one harmed him. So where is Jesus right now? May peace be upon him. He's alive. He's in heaven. He's with Allah. We believe he's going to come back. Allah says, What?
Indeed, he will be one of the signs of the coming of the hour, he will come down just before the hour, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes the place where he will come down in a sham at the moment. It's the country of Syria.
He says the eastern part a certain place some of the scholars say close to where the Mr. msgid is today, and he will come down in a specific place. La Akbar, he's going to come down towards the end of the time, and Allah says what he mean and Lin kitabi illallah umina NaVi cabela Mota. Akiyama to coonawarra him shahida. All the true People of the Book will believe in Him before his final death. When he comes he will live for a certain number of years. He will rule he will spread the truth. You will
Spread the oneness, he will destroy the cross and He will do so many things he will kill the Antichrist and what have you and thereafter he will also die. And Allah says they will believe in him before he dies, he will come with these signs.
And this is why Allah says, wa katello wa masala boo wanna kill.
They did not kill Jesus, nor did they crucify Jesus, but they were confused about him.
Were in Aladdin afterlife movie that he shot.
And those who are disputing about this Judas, Allah says, they were in doubt, even when they were crucifying this man. And even before and even after they are in plain doubt up to today, who exactly was crucified, if you take a look at the biblical versions of the crucifixion, so many contradictions in the story. So many, you just have to pick up a book or two of comparative studies between Islam and Christianity. And you will see the amount of discrepancies that are in the story of how Jesus was crucified because it was not Jesus who was crucified, there was a face of Judas that was made to now look like Jesus. And this is why they crucify the men believing that he was the
one but because he was a traitor, he was punished by the Almighty. Now the Christians believe he died on the cross as a redemption for our sins. We Muslims say, it is an injustice for us sitting here in Cape Town in this message in to say there is a lot of adultery, a lot of armed robbery, a lot of sin. So in order for us to absolve ourselves of all this, let's pick the most pious from amongst us and crucify him in that corner, and inshallah that will mean all our sins.
That is injustice. The greatest injustice is to punish a person who did not commit the sin. So as Muslims, we believe it is blasphemous to think that the almighty would punish someone on another person's behalf. It's blasphemous, again, another piece of blasphemy. But this is our belief. Remember, our belief is pristine, pure undebatable. You can't argue with it. It has no blasphemy in it at all.
Let's talk about something else.
If he was a son of God, or as some of them say, part of God, or some of them, say God Himself, so God was crucified, what's gonna happen to all of us? Allahu Akbar. And this is why we say that that is another blasphemy. To call him a part of God to call him a son of God, to call him these names. That is all blasphemous to the real maker, the one who created all of us, instead of saying, Oh, Jesus, you say, Oh, my maker, redeemed me Oh, my maker Forgive me. Oh, my maker when I returned to you have mercy on me. The minute you say, Oh, Jesus have mercy on me. There's a very, very big risk. I like to tell my Christian friends you know what, you are either right or wrong, but I'm always
I say Oh, my maker Forgive me. Oh, you who is the owner of forgiveness, forgive me, oh, you whom I'm going to return to have mercy on me the day I returned to I have never taken a risk. The minute you say, Oh, Jesus forgive my sin, you taking a very big risk.
Because even according to your own statement, you know, in religion, nobody can guarantee anything. That's the beauty of religion, you need to have belief to believe. And this is why Islam is all about belief. And all religions are about belief. But you have to use your sense you have to apply the common knowledge that Allah has given you. So you have to ask yourself, look, we need to believe but believe what believe without risk because you live once only once. So if you are to risk it once it's over, now Allah forgive us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Have mercy on us. Now you find another statement. People say Jesus blood was food for you. May Allah forgive us. As we said, it encourages
people to commit sin number one, number two, it means the Almighty is more unjust than the tyrant rulers of today who punish innocent people. That is another piece of blasphemy. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors. I hope we have clarified a lot. So Islam says all this is blasphemous, we rise above all of that we say Jesus was not God. No. Was he the Son of God? No. Was he the father of a trinity? No was he crucified, he was an honored messenger born to marry without a father by the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The power of the Creator, who had before him already created Adam and Eve, and who had created every single one of us, the power of the same maker created Jesus
and allowed him to speak from the cradle, and clarified who he was and gave him the Torah and gave him the Bible and told him to teach the people and later on, he had so many miracles that were manifest with his hands that Allah had granted him permission to do and to show the people those who accepted were successful and those who rejected had failed, and thereafter they plan to kill him and when they plan to kill him, they will
in confusion as to who exactly they crucified because Allah took him away well before they could harm him.
That in a nutshell is the life of East LA Salam. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
On the Day of Judgment there is going to be a statement between Allah the maker and between this messenger Jesus.
Allah says, What do you call on La Jolla in Santa Maria
Tony wakamiya illa
Allah says we will ask Jesus Christ may peace be upon him on the Day of Judgment. And the past tense is used yet because time is a creature of the Almighty to him. Past, present, future is all just nothing. It's just a creature of his, it's as good as done. He has created time and put us into what we know as present tense. But for him, the future is as good as past and the past is as good as the present and everything is just time. Time is a creature of all our brains are too small to understand that we need to just know the statement time is a creature and time is going to be killed when it comes to the life after death. When no matter how many years we've lived for, it will still
be as though we have not lived. And we will not be living for anything but eternity. So we won't know when we started and we won't know when it when it's ending because it's not going to end because time is gone. You take time out of the equation what happens to you
opened our doors. So Jesus May peace be upon him. Allah says we will ask him Oh Jesus, did you tell the people to worship yourself and your mother besides the maker and the creator besides me Who made you? And Jesus is going to answer to Allah Subhana Allah Subhana makueni koulamallah insanely helpful Glory be to You Oh my maker all Hi.
It is impossible for me to utter any word besides that which you instructed me to utter? I did not tell them that. I didn't tell them to worship myself to worship my mother.
Had I said it? Oh Allah, you would have known it. Dalai Lama magazine I've seen you know everything about me, you know what is hidden in me?
Murphy in FCW, I do not have that knowledge which you possess Yama
you but you know the unseen completely. Then he continues to say man in america any any
man can. I only told them what you instructed to tell me to tell them and that is worship Allah who made me and who made you worship the one who made me and who made you that is the one you will call him the worship one in the Hebrew language they use the term aloha or ello him to refer to Allah which means the worship to one Subhana Allah.
Then he says,
I did not utter anything besides with you that which you told me to say to them, that worship Allah be
in whom I usually mean a
Now, in another verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Jesus said, Who ever associates partnership with the maker will definitely end up in Hellfire and will lose the heaven. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. Then he says,
to us the boom for in homi Bhabha. Oh Allah, if you want to punish them, they are your worshipers. You have that you own that Allah made he can do what he wants. So he's saying Yeah, like if you want to punish them, they are your worship is.
In tallassee is all Hakeem and if you want to forgive them Yama, if you forgive them, you are indeed all powerful, all wise, you know, Allah is the one whom he knows he can punish, but over and above that he still forgives. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, forgive us.
We have another very, very interesting verse of the Quran.
Allah says Jesus May peace be upon him, warned his people and reminded them that Allah is going to send you a comforter to come. Allah will send you a man who will continue my message that you should worship Allah alone, you know, the laws of jurisprudence might differ. But the laws of belief have not different from the time of Adam, right to the end.
The belief in the almighty the maker, the belief in the messengers, the belief in the books, the belief in the angels, the belief in good and bad is from Allah subhanho wa Taala
Belief in the last day and resurrection, all that all the messages came with exactly the same message ditto. But when it comes to the laws of jurisprudence, what is permissible, what is prohibited, how to pray, how not to pray, what to do what not to do in terms of jurisprudence that differed with the defining of time and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came up with that which encapsulated absolutely everything we need right up to the end of time. So Allah says,
What is Carla in Savannah? Maria Maria Bonnie Shriner. When he says remember he told his people Jesus told His people or children of Israel, in near Rasulullah, in a massage De Lima, Amina Tamati, I am a messenger unto you. And I confirm the message of the Torah that is between my hands while mobile Shiranui rasuna a demon that this move
and I am giving you good news of a messenger who is going to come after me whose name shall be the praised one. Subhana Allah, Allah says, follow majha humble Bina takanohana zero movie.
When the clear signs came to them later on, they said this is magic. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and grant us goodness Oh, Jesus May peace be upon him warned his people and gave them glad tidings at the same time of a messenger to come after he was known as a comforter. And he was known as the bearer of praise.
The praised one you take a look at Mohammed is from the route of Ahmed hamidah to praise so he is the praised one.
And he came with exactly the same message as what the Christians are supposed to be following. And this is why we tell them read the Quran without blinkers. read the Quran and see the message in there and take your time read it cover to cover when the joshy the nagus of Abba Sr. was faced with some of the companions Jafari, Abu Talib and the others. They went to him and they told him we are coming from Makkah, there is a man who has, you know, who is an OB and so on and so forth. So the co founder of Croatia also decided to send a little delegation there. And Najafi on the nagus of Abba sr, which is now roughly where Ethiopia is. He asks, he says, what do they say? Because these people
said, you know, you believe in Jesus, these people speak a very grave lie against Jesus. So he asked the question, What do you say about Jesus? So, the Sahaba, who were there at the time, Jafar Ibn Abu Talib, and the others, recited this verse, the opening verses of surah. Maryam regarding Jesus and everything I mentioned today, most of it is in those verses. So he started to cry, who was crying, the king of Amazonia, the niggas. According to some Galatians his name was as Hama and he was crying. These tears are mentioned in the Quran.
The tears are mentioned in the Quran. And he looked at these people, he says, This is the truth regarding Jesus. It's exactly who he was. He was a slave of Allah. He was a worshipper of Allah. He was not a god, nor was he part of God, nor was he a son of God. Amazing, and he believed it's reported when he passed away the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam read janaza Allah in his absence was in Madina munawwara and said there is one of our brothers who has passed away today in the in Abyssinia and we'd like to regenerator Allah Subhana which Allah grant us forgiveness. The last point we want to close with this evening in sha Allah.
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
towards the end of his life showed a lot of concern about something.
So much so that one day he got up and very, very strongly warned all of us and you will find this hadith in most books of Hadith.
He looks at his companions and he says lacuna karma for Athena sarana Maryam wala Qin kulu Abdullah, he rasuluh I feel for you, oh, my people do not go beyond the limits with me. Just like the Christians, the devil got hold of them. And they went beyond the limits with Jesus always refer to me as Abdullah he rasuluh the slave of Allah and His messenger. This is why we say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah and we say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah ilaha illAllah Muhammad Al
Abu rasuluh, where did we get that from? He said, always refer to me as Abu rasuluh. So that you remember, I am not a god. I am not a part of God. I am not a part of a trinity and I am not someone who is going to be worshipped besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. I am a slave of Allah. A messenger who has come to you Be warned, do not raise my status higher than it actually is. It's already the highest. There were five messengers
Where the highest Who are they? Jesus Christ, may peace be upon him, the prophet Abraham, the Prophet Moses, the Prophet Noah and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So it is important for us to know the level of these who are the greatest Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mentioned, we know the top top of the ladder, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, thereafter, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam thereafter, Musa alayhis salam. Then he said he said I'm in no hurry he said I'm the last to Allah knows what is the order but we know the order of the top three We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us every form of goodness Alhamdulillah with this we have completed some of the lessons of the stories of the Quran. I hope and I pray that we have had the most blessed Ramadan. The idea is to benefit even outside the month of Ramadan. And I want to seize
this opportunity once again to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for granting us the 1000s of brothers and sisters who have come on a daily basis and hamdulillah to listen to these beautiful words of the Quran. Remember the power is the power of the message, not the power of the one delivering the message we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us channel our love and our sincerity to him alone. And to grant us the sweetness of the Quran. The sweetness of Eman, the sweetness of it believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala We ask Allah to accept every droplet from us because indeed it is with acceptance that we will receive goodness if Allah rejects us, we will be losers. So May Allah
subhanahu wa taala forgive us all, it has been one of the most blessed ravine that I have ever spent. And I really want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart and we ask Allah to grant us success in the dunya as well as in the euro. Until we meet again inshallah we say your sallallahu wasallam robotic Allah and Mohammed Subhana Allah Subhana Allah homovanillic Allah Illa illa Anta Guru kawana
