smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam wa barik ala Muhammad Allah Allah mean Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa
My dear sisters, last week we saw how Allah subhanho wa Taala says that every single nation he sent punishment to them when they deserved it because they belied the messengers and they did not obey the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They turned away they transgressed the sin, they followed their whims and fancies, and they earned the wrath and the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But he makes mention of the names of the big chiefs who were against the messengers. So yes, the nations were destroyed, but the names made mention the names of the big guns, those who were the top brass those who are following and from this, we learned that Allah subhana wa Taala destroys the
elite. And Allah subhanho wa Taala destroys those who follow the elite as well. This is why if you go back and you look at verse number 39, you will find some of the names, even verse number 38, Allah says widen with Amada wakatobi and Allah Kumi masa Kini him Allah makes mention of the nation's Adam thermowood. And in the next verse, he says, What's your call una una wa hamana. He's making mention of three of the Chiefs the elite at the time of musala. His Salatu was Salam. And then he says in verse number 44, Khun Lang have not beaten beat, every single one of them, we punish them because of their sins, their deeds, so they deserved the punishment. Allah never ever punishes
someone else for the deeds of another person. He does not do that. And the Quran says it clearly while artha 002 with no soul burdens or shoulders, the burdens of another, no one shall shoulder the burden of another. We have spoken about this in Surah two Lanka boot earlier on, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the the disbelievers will carry deeds of theirs as well as other deeds. And we said that when a person sets a bad example or leads people astray, he gets the sin for those whom he has led astray. It's part of his own sin. And when a person guide someone else, they get a reward for the people they have guided. And this is why my brother or my sister in Islam,
anyone Allah has used you to guide while law he you will receive the full reward of whatever goodness they do as a result of your speech or your statement or whatever signs that you have sent to them or whatever you have actually encouraged them with. This is why remember, treat people with lots of encouragement never discourage someone, people might turn away from the dean because of you if that is the case, you may just be doomed. But if people are encouraged towards the dean because of you Subhan Allah how many ever are guided or whatever good deeds they start to do because of whatever you have said or done or the encouragement you have put forward, inshallah you will receive
the full reward. So then Allah Subhana Allah, Allah says here regarding the people who call out to Gods besides Allah, and not only that, those who take as protectors and helpers, others besides Allah, the term used by Allah here is only a very interesting that this term is to be used because today people worship others whom they call the Olia. They say no, these are Leah will guarantee us a place in Genoa. We're lucky we may believe that someone is a pious person, but we don't know whether they themselves are going to go to Paradise. There is no guarantee the Prophet sallallahu wasallam tells his own family Yeah, Asia or Asia. Oh, Fatima. Oh, my daughter Oh, oh, so and so also and so
it really fame Neelam Lee Kuan came in Allah ha and you better do your own deeds because I do not own anything against Allah from you. I do not own I cannot help you against the punishment of Allah in any way you better do your deeds, even though Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was definitely a person who was the best of creation without doubt and at the same time, he is guaranteed the first rank in paradise Subhana Allah, but still he told his people
Look, you'd better do your own deeds because yes, he owns the intercession of the Day of Judgment, but it will all happen through the will and permission of Allah and the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that intercession will only happen within the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we've been taught that whoever Allah does not allow the intercession of they will not be permitted the intercession. So this is why we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the intercession of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the same time we need to do deeds so that at least we become deserving of that particular intercession.
And we become deserving of the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about
this by saying the likeness of those who take false deities as protectors, or helpers, other than Allah is the likeness of a spider who builds for itself a house, Allahu Akbar, did you hear that? powerful verse powerful example. So when a spider builds itself a house, that house is powerful, according to the spider, but it is nothing. It is the weakest of houses according to the rest of creation. And in reality, it's the weakest of houses, yet the spider thinks it's powerful. So Allah says you want to worship the Olia, you want to take pious people as Gods besides Allah, we can word it that way. Or you want to take others besides Allah as helpers and protectors, you want to achieve
protection from others besides Allah, Allah says, well, it is similar to a spider that has sought protection by building his house, yet its house is just a web so Allah subhanho wa Taala says
we're in our Honolulu tea lobby to land LAN Kabuto Verily, the frailest are the weakest of houses, is the spiders house, if they but new Subhanallah What this means is, as I explained, a spider thinks that it is protected but we can trample over the spider and its house all at once. So Allah is saying you know how powerful allies if you want to seek protection from others besides Allah, if you want to take out Leah besides Allah subhanho wa Taala then what will happen Allah says you have protected yourself with something that you think is so strong yet it is just like a spider being protected by a web. It is so useless. It is so worthless, anything and everything can trample over
it and destroy it and whatever it contains in a split moment. So your best bet, turn away from those besides Allah and go to Allah alone. Subhana Allah, look at the power of this example. And look at how the term Olia is used yet today, we have people who use the same term, to seek protection from those besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. Sometimes we seek help from those who are in their graves, Allah safeguard us, meaning some people do that. May Allah protect us. Some people seek protection from those who are living living, and they are saints living in another country. And people you know, hang up their photographs, keep their photos in their wallets. And every time they they want
something they look at the photograph and say, Please give me this and please give me that one law here. It happens in this society and community. And people hang up the pictures in the lounges and yards and whenever they enter the first greet that particular photograph and thereafter, they actually push off. May Allah protect us they think that these people protect No they don't. It's Allah who protects. Now one might ask what about if we seek the means? Say for example, you have a house and you want to employ a god? The answer is, that is just a physical means in front of your eyes, you are putting a person knowing that the ultimate protector is Allah you still say takelma
Allah, you can never ever say I lay my full trust in this god that is standing. Because a lot of the gods when you see them at night, you say, have a good night. You know, sleep well and say thank you very much, you know, because that means he's been sleeping, Allahu Akbar. And people don't even realize, you know, if you say how was your evening? Did you sleep? Well? He said yes, no. But nowadays, if they shut up, they'll probably tell you no, no, I was awake. May Allah safeguard us what law here we can never ever lay our full trust in anyone or anything besides Allah. Ultimately, Allah is the one and Allah is the one he protects. This is just a means that so many people have
locked their houses with the most sophisticated alarm systems and so many guards and still they've been robbed. That's our last plan to show you that Allah is in control. And so many people have not been able to actually put so much in terms of physical protection but they lay their trust in Allah. They've done whatever is within their means. And Allah says okay, we've protected the home because they lay their trust in Allah. Same applies to protecting yourself from the devil from shaitaan. From the effect of the jinn from the evil that is going on around in societies and communities, my mothers and sisters, there is so much evil that is going on that it is very, very difficult.
SubhanAllah extremely difficult.
To live in society and community that has so much adversity, and that is almost globally we are facing these problems. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard our offspring. One wonders if we are facing so much in terms of challenges in our times what will happen at the times of our own children. So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about that and he says, the example of those who have taken besides Allah protectors or Olia is like the example of a spider that has taken a house or built its own home. And definitely this web that the spider has built is the weakest of all homes, Lowcountry Alamo, if only but they know in Allahu Allah madrona mendini himanshi Verily, Allah knows
what things they invoke instead of him. He is the almighty that all wise, Allah knows what you are calling out to besides Allah, you are not allowed to call out to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam people say Yana B. People say al madad people say Allah both and so on. That Allah method is only from Allah, that help is solely from Allah, you cannot call out to the dead you cannot call out to those who are messengers of the past Subhana Allah you cannot call out to a messenger the May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us you cannot call out to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Yes, when he is alive.
When he was here with us, the Sahaba they were instructed to go to him to seek His da so that we can do if you go to someone and say brother please make dua for me sister remember me in your dog that is fine. That is fine. But the minute you say, oh messenger grant me this and oh messenger grant me that that is absolutely disallowed. We say Oh Allah grant me this and Oh Allah grant me that Oh Allah grant me the intercession of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, that is the proper way of asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we should not risk our entire existence in this dunya and fail the test.
The test is whether you're going to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, you'd rather stay well protected, and do that and that alone, may Allah subhanahu Allah grant us goodness. So Allah says, What till can unfollow notary boo hardiness and these examples we put forward for mankind, but no one will understand them except for those who have knowledge of Allah and His signs. So who will take heed from these type of examples? Only those with knowledge, those with understanding my Akela in the early moon, those who have the true understanding, they will understand exactly what we're saying here. Some people might think what's Allah giving an example of here of the spiderweb and so
on. So Subhanallah That is why Allah says, Allah is the Almighty, all wise, he is the one who sends forth these examples, and he is the one who has given these type of examples to mankind, and none will understand them besides those with knowledge, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us knowledge. Then Allah Subhana Allah says Allah tala who sumati will, who created the skies and the earth, Allah says, Allah Allahu Allah to Allah, it is Allah indeed it is Allah subhanho wa Taala, who has created the heavens and the earth with truth, Allah alone, and none shade him in their creation, nobody helped him. Nobody assisted Allah in creating the earth and the heavens and whatever lies in between
them in the entire creation. Allah Subhana what Allah says in the field Alec Allah I attend Lil momineen. Indeed, in that there is a sign for those who believe those who believe in the unseen they will believe in that. And then Allah says, autodromo he O Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam resigns, recite that which has been revealed to you. Recite that which has been revealed to you of the book of the Quran, read it.
While Hakim is Salah, and establish your prayer, recite that which has been revealed to you and establish your prayer.
Allah says, recite that which has been revealed to you and establish the prayer. Why For indeed, prayer will prevent you from evil and immorality. Prayer prevents from evil and immorality Subhana Allah, if you take a careful look at this verse, it's asking you to do two things, my mother's and sisters, read the Quran and establish your Salah two things and what will happen. It will protect you from immorality and evil Subhana Allah Allah my mothers and sisters, what a powerful verse from Allah subhanho wa Taala amazing. Are you prepared to read the Quran? Try to understand it, see what Allah says in it. Are you prepared to set aside time of the day to understand the Quran to
understand the message of Allah? When we say read, we talk of reading with understanding so
If you don't understand the Arabic language, you have a double duty and that is to learn the Arabic language to recite it and on top of that to go through the meanings of the verses of the Koran. So this is the power of the Quran, it will be understood through two things. One is the recitation and two is the understanding there off. And this is why even those who speak the Arabic language, they will have to make an effort to understand the deeper meanings of the Quran to go through how the Sahaba the Allahu anhu understood the same Quran, it's important to look at that because they lived revelation. They know best how and what the verses had meant, and what how exactly they had affected
them, and the reasons of Revelation and so on. So it's important for us to make a time to try and learn the word of Allah. This is why for the last 12 years, we have this session here every Sunday once a week. And if we cannot make time even once a week then one wonders when is it we had that we have made time for Allah subhanho wa Taala to understand His word, and Allah says if you try and understand the word and you establish your Salah thereafter, that Salah will definitely be a means of protection from immorality and evil.
So a Salah that is read without understanding without any form of you know concentration, without knowing what you saying it may not help you to the level that it is supposed to help you. Yes, you might fulfill your father, your duty might be done in terms of COVID was obligatory upon you but you are supposed to be achieving much more from that Salah My dear mother and sister, you are supposed to be achieving a lot that you will only be able to achieve when you begin to understand the verses of the Quran that you are reading in salah and you begin to understand what is it that you are uttering in your Salah. So when you say Alhamdulillah hearable al Ameen Amani Rahim, Maliki ami Dean
and your concentration is now on what it means you will find yourself much more elevated spiritually than a person who is just paying lip service to that prayer. May Allah protect us this is why Allah says two things in this verse autonoma or here alayka minella kita be read that which We have revealed to you from the book or of the book what Akeem is salah and establish your prayer. If karma to Salah means to establish meaning make sure you do it properly. It karma to Salah would include your will do it would include your Nia your intention, it will include the proper time it would include the proper way of reading the Salah, it would include trying to understand the meaning of
that salah and it would also include the timings and the repetition of the Salah as we are supposed to be reading that particular solid five times a day every single day. That is just the bare minimum. So this is why Allah says establish your Salah establishing Salah would include also slowly getting into that which is voluntary, that which is absolutely at your discretion not only the father of my dearest mothers and sisters sometimes we are weak we don't even read what is obligatory upon us and then we want to make a big deal of it yet we are supposed to be getting to that which is voluntary as well. How are you going to be able to read your Suna and nephele Salah when you haven't
even established your father, so let's get there My dear as mothers and sisters. Then Allah says definitely that Salah will protect you from evil and immorality. This is Allah declaration. When you have to do you are protected from the devil. When you are protected from the devil you will want to look forward to fulfilling your Salah when you fulfill that Salah you will be worried about the next Salah when you are worried about the next Salah you won't sin between the two Salas Subhana Allah because as soon as you've read your acid for example, you're waiting for Madrid as soon as you've read your Madrid you are waiting for Asia as soon as you've read your Isha Mashallah you might want
to go and sleep and you're worried about getting up early so that you can have a glimpse of the head dude insha Allah and you can read your fudger Salah as soon as the time sets in clocks in and when you read that Salah It is so beautiful a feeling that you will not feel like sinning thereafter if you've done it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala a person who establishes Salah will not be able to sin for the for because they know they've done the Salah for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, they will want to protect it. But when we just pay lip service when we are lazy we just get up and we getting things done just for the sake of doing it. That's if we lucky, may Allah
protect us in that particular case we may not be able to achieve such protection that Allah has promised
and this is only one aspect that I've discussed but spiritually my mothers and sisters when your home is protected
because Salah is reading the home the Hadith actually says that Salah is a lie that home is alive, it is live and and unlike the Salah, the home where no Salah is red is like a grave. It's like a dead home. Now in grace, what happens? You know you get troubled and you have the devils and you have the spirits coming to trouble and you have so many things while law he the whole
wherein Salah is established properly, and the other one is called for Salah. The shaitaan stays very very far away from that house. You must remember that the house in which Quran is recited aloud. Shaytan stays far away from that house, the house in which Salah is established. This is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to read his father in the masjid and immediately thereafter he used to go back into his home, and he used to read his son and nothing in the home Subhana Allah, and this is why he says liven up your homes by reading Salah in your houses. Don't let them be graves,
la Lu takamura. Don't let your houses be like graves. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us May he make us establish our Salah in our own homes. You want to protect yourself from the devil. There is a lot going around these days. With all these demon worshippers claiming to be religious and false prophets claiming to be you know of a spiritual nature, people visiting witch doctors and spirit mediums and so on in order to try and resolve their matters and problems with all that happening in all the types of magic and all various casting of spells that is occurring today across the globe. While ah here we need to safeguard ourselves. Today I was reading a little article prepared by one
of the allameh who were speaking about Valentine's Day and saying that did you know that devil worshipping is mainly connected to three colors. If you take a look at the Freemasons or you take a look at any other satanist cults, they use the color red, and then black and white. So red, black and white, those colors are devil worshipping colors. And if you take a look at the history of Valentine's Day, it is taken from the demon worshipping the devilish cults and the Satan worshipping. And they encourage us to wear these three colors on that day. So it's red, or black and white, and mainly red and black. And then they would include white as well. These are contrasting
colors that are used simultaneously in order to engage in devil worship. So if you were to Google this or if you were to look for it and see what type of colors are used when it comes to Freemasonry, and when it comes to devil worship and so on, you will get a jolt and the shock we go out to purchase those colors to chop up the chick Allahu Akbar, Allah He This is what happens. We go out to purchase these colors in order to done that so that we can be seen as a love bug, Allahu Akbar, love bugaboo of the devil love.
imagine a little fist bump, we call them fist pumps, but those suckers imagine a little sucker that is opened, and all the little flies are sitting on it and you're waiting in order to lick it. That's exactly the type of dress code that you would be donning on the 14th of February a style ferula with rather involving the world hijab day, which was set at first of February, I don't even think half of us would have known about it because we probably don't even follow. And it was such a success according to what we were told that it raised world attention. People who are non Muslim entered the fold of Islam, just because they were invited to wear the hijab in order to feel what it's like. And
sisters who haven't done the hijab as muslimeen decided from this day, we're going to wear it completely, world hijab day, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless those who came up with the idea.
As I always say, some people might not see the light in some things, but sometimes we will only be able to see light after we see results. And when we see people being guided towards the concentration of this particular item that brings people to Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us true Muslims. So why don't we choose that day and say, yeah, Allah, instead of turning and becoming a love bug of a little guy who's going to let us down and break our marriages? Do you know how many marriages are broken on the 14th of February? Let me tell you, people who don't get flowers from their spouses, marriages are broken. Why? How come you didn't bring me flowers? It's the 14th
it means you don't love me? Yeah, Allahu Akbar. Allah you know that squeaky voice already gives it away. Then what's the problem? Husband brings the flowers. Where did you get these from? So now what do you do? Either way, it's a devil worshipping Satan a cult. Would you like to be a part of it? My dearest mothers and sisters? No, it is prohibited in the Sharia and don't come up with that nonsense. That this is only a day to promote love. Because in Islam love is promoted 24 seven every single day Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And do not try and attract those around. Because you will be just like a sucker with all those flies sitting on it before you actually put it in your mouth.
Would you do that? The answer is no. I'd opt for your geta Allahu Akbar. May Allah protect us my mothers and sisters. It's about time we woke up and we understood you want to achieve protection from immorality and evil. The only way is
Firstly by reciting the Quran in order to understand it and establishing the Salah with an idea of understanding what you're seeing in your prayer, my dearest mothers and sisters, it's about time we don't have a job, because in morality, Allahu Akbar in morality has a starting point.
And the starting point is nudity when you uncover what you're supposed to be covered today, I read a beautiful tweet by one of the sisters. Do you know what she said? Amazing words to the effect that
dear Muslim men, it is their duty to lower their gaze.
It is the responsibility of men to lower their gaze, but it is your responsibility to cover
and not to give them whatever the you know, they are supposed to be gazing upon. In fact, it's worded much better than I've said it, but it's actually reminding the women that yes, don't just say that men have to lower their gaze, you have a duty not to give them things to gaze at Allahu Akbar. You have you have a duty not to give them things to gaze at. They will only gaze at you when you've given them something to gaze at. That is really, you know, like that sucker I'm speaking about with all the flies sitting on it. Imagine bacteria all over Allahu Akbar, Allah save goddess, and you still want to go forth. And you still want to do whatever Allah Subhana Allah to Allah anger lies in
Why should we do that? Can we not for example, show our love to Allah subhanho wa Taala and say Allah The world is showing love to other creatures, I want to show love to my Creator. So let me now done in the correct way. Do you know that when we try to help brothers or sisters, who have been affected or possessed in a specific way, when we try to help them by, you know, perhaps exorcism, or protecting them from this demon, if the if the sister does not dress appropriately, it makes the job 100 times more difficult. If the house has portraits hung in it, whether it's photographs or whether any other portraits, it makes the job 100 times more difficult. If that particular house there are
people who watch pornography in it or listen to music in it, it makes the job 100 times more difficult. But when there is a home where the sister is dressed appropriately, there is no sin that is happening there dirty magazines and so on. And the music is not listened to in that home and the Quran is being played. And for example, there are no portraits that are hung around and so on Wallah it becomes so easy to protect, or to help that person by the exorcism or protecting them from the demon and so on. Sometimes you will read Quran so much and you will find there is no effect to impact because your home is full of dirty magazines. You watch pornography you sit and watch movies
up to late at night. And then you say I can hear a sound in my room. Yes. You wanted to hear the sounds of the demons on that particular television throughout half the night. Are they going to come to bed with you as well? La Akbar X Files May Allah protect us. May Allah safeguard us while he Hi, my mothers and sisters, you might ask me how do you know about x fans? Because people have told us we see this when in our dreams, you know, so you have to ask, Well, what is it and they tell you? Yeah, it's Oh, it's so interesting, because you know, it's all about these little skeletons and people who come alive after they did and you know, it's really interesting. Well thereafter. If
that's the case, you need to know you are heavily in the clutch of Hollywood. Hollywood has clutched you and your Koran has de clutched you Why? Because you're not interested in what Allah says you're not interested in something beneficial in terms of your deen and you want to be protected. Allah says what will protect you is your Salah, establish it. Try and understand the words of your Salah the other day, Wednesday evening in the masjid, I made mention of a point I always say, my mothers and sisters, how old are you? answer your question in your mind. How many years have you been reading Salah for answer that question in your mind? And you still don't know what it means? You
still don't know the meanings of the sutras that you are reading in salla Allahu Akbar, what an insult. 30 years 40 years down the line. If I asked your children to sing along bollywood, you know songs or Hollywood songs and so on, they probably sing along la Akbar, Allahu Akbar, my mothers and sisters. Something very, very powerful. We need to think about it. And we really need to wake ourselves up.
Allahu Akbar. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
thereafter he says, O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Read what is revealed to you of the book and fulfill your Salah. establish your Salah For verily Salah or the prayer prevents people from immorality and evil. And here it is translated as great Sins of every kind, unlawful sexual behavior, Al Mancha which means disbelief polytheism and every kind of evil wicked deed, it will protect you from that mooncup also includes polytheism and all forms of schilke if you read your Salah correctly, Allahu Akbar then Allah says, and the remembering of praising of you by Allah in front
of the angels is greater indeed, than your remembering of Allah in prayer. Allah knows what you do.
Do you know what that means? When you read Salah Allah mentions you to the angels, you remember Allah, Allah remembers you for the qurani of the quarter come remember me, I will remember you. So if you want to invoke a large remembrance of you, you need to remember Allah. Firstly, when you read Salah, Allah mentions you. So this verse is saying levico law, he Akbar, when Allah speaks about you, it is far more blessed than when you are mentioning him. Imagine Allah mentioning you far more important, like I told you, I gave you an example, I think it was last week or earlier, when I said my mother's and sisters, something to think of. If you know a celebrity of the world, it's no big
deal. You can talk about them and say how well you know them. But the day they make mention of you, you feel so proud. Wow, I actually this person mentioned to me, you know, and you're there with your colors making like you the big deal, that, that the people of the dunya are very fast to understand. The example of a lie is always higher, while Illa Allah, we don't even want to talk about the celebrities of the dunya because they mean No, only those who call us towards the remembrance of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.
So Allah says, when you establish your Salah, you need to remember it will protect you from evil and immorality, but it will invoke the mercy of Allah and the fact that Allah will remember you and Allah has remembrance of you is far higher, far greater, while La Jolla, Allah Mamata stone and Allah knows exactly what you are doing. Allahu Akbar. So every time you read Salah, now you must remember Allah is mentioning your name to the angels, Allah. So imagine what happens when you miss your Salah. Imagine what happens when you miss your Salah. You are forcing the angels to write something against you to bear witness against you imagine you have a court case and you need
witnesses to witness for you. Now you suddenly giving people reason to witness against you How foolish would you be? The same applies when we don't read our Salah. We are giving the angels mo against ourselves, the angels who are ready to write our good deeds and now suddenly we have angels writing our bad deeds. Then Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, Allah to God Allah Allah Al Kitab illegibility, he asked and when you discuss with the people of the Scriptures, when you have your debates with the people of the Scriptures, the Jews or the Christians, when you are debating with them or discussing with them or arguing with them, the term argue is used here. And what is referred
to is when you are discussing, inviting them to the religion or debating For example,
when do so do not do so except with goodness in a good way. Unless it is in a way that is better in liability here us and us the best methods to debate with them or to bring forth the good to them with good words in a good manner inviting them to Islamic monotheism, with his verses with the verses of Allah. Allah is to use the verses of Allah. In order to prove your point, you must say it properly. Now, what I have to say is if we are being taught to address the People of the Book, with good words when it comes to discussing the deen and the religion. What about addressing the people who already utter the Shahada? We should be using even better words today we have groups of people
who prefer to use the dirtiest of words when calling Muslims to Islam.
Because there are two things called Muslims towards the obedience of Allah and starting to adopt Islam and calling non Muslims So Allah is saying, when you're calling the non Muslims, be careful, use good words. So I think it is even more befitting that we use better words when we are calling those who are already Muslim, towards the submission unto Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is something very important. It's a powerful verse Illa Latina woman whom Allah says except for those
as do wrong, and they say, they say for example,
Allahu Akbar, Allah is saying,
except for those from amongst them, who do wrong. And they say,
we believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you our ILA and your ILA is one and to Him we have submitted as muslimeen. So this exception does not mean that those people who speak rough to them, but Allah subhanho wa Taala says that you do not debate with those who are the people of the book, except with goodness with the Quran Illa de la Vela Moomin home, except those who have oppressed from amongst them and it stops there. Now the term waku, Amana
leveon Zilla Elena Allah is instructing, saying, and this is what you should say. You should say that we believe in what Allah has revealed to you and what Allah has revealed to us. This is the type of debate Allah is saying you should have, you should speak on commonalities that which has been revealed to you and that which has been revealed to us and we believe in one Allah, your revelation promotes the oneness of Allah and so does ours. And your revelation is not different from ours. The only thing is you have changed it over time. And then we can go on to prove how it has been changed because within the own scriptures that they are following there are already so many
versions. So Allah subhanho wa Taala here is making mention of how important it is to address those with good terms, except those who are clear cut oppresses, you might want to address them with a few words that might be holding some directness in it, they may feel slightly offended sometimes, because they may have offended you in a big way. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, saying, you should always call them to that which is good. Tell them that what has been revealed to you and what has been revealed to us is acceptable to us on condition that it is the pristine revelation, not contaminated revelation that you may be holding in your hands right now. So Allah says And thus, we
have sent down the book Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Thus we have sent down the book Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to you for Latina Latina homolka taba Yamuna Bay, those whom we have given the scriptures to have believed in it, they have believed in it.
I mean, how Allah ma amin OBE, and from amongst these the present people, there are those who have believed in it. So the People of the Book believed in the book when we revealed the Book and from amongst those around you who claim to be followers of the People of the Book, they are those who have followed this book as well such as Abdullah Abu Salim, they have followed the book while Maya had to be it now lol Cafiero none can deny the verses of Allah besides a disbeliever now I want to stop there for a moment and inshallah I need to address a very important matter. When Allah says one Maria had to be Aya Tina in lol cafe Ron, he says, and none would deny the verses of your Lord
besides or our verses besides the disbelievers. It also means that from amongst us, if any one of us is going to deny the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala we would be considered disbelievers.
When Allah reveals verses, you need to surrender to them to be considered a Muslim. A Muslim is the one who surrenders The minute you have
rejected one verse of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says Maya had to be careful. It is a sign of disbelief. That's it. So if a person has, has believed in 99% of the verses of Allah and rejects 1%, they cannot call themselves submitters, they're not submitters, you need to submit. If you submit it means I believe in the Word of Allah, it is correct. If I may not have understood it, I will struggle and strive until I understand. And even if I don't understand, I will submit because it comes from Allah. For as long as I know the source like Ibrahim alayhi salam, he did not understand some of the instructions of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah sacrifice your son, I don't understand.
Leave those things that leave your family in this desert and carry on I don't understand but he said for as long as I know it came from Allah I am submitting without questioning. This is what made him the favorite of Allah, one of the favorites of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that is a very important aspect, a very important point where Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Those whom we have given the book to believed in that book, and from amongst these who are around you, they've also believed in the book such as Abdullah Abu salam, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says he had to be it not in that cafe alone. None but the disbelievers reject Our Ayat, our proofs, our science, our lessons. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us safety. And Allah says lahmacun lumen kubla Haman keytab they accused Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of having read the previous scriptures and come up with something similar. So Allah says, but neither did you read any book before this Quran. You were not able to read any book, nor were you able to write whatsoever with
your right hand.
If that was the case, then the followers of falsehood might have doubted, but how can they doubt when you could neither read nor write? This verse is explaining one of the reasons why Allah kept Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and who may or may meaning a person who could neither read or write. So Allah kept him that so that people would not say he read the books of the old and he wrote it with his hand. Allah says you are unable to read and you are unable to write. If you were able to read or write maybe they could have done
How can they doubt when you are not able to do any of those two Subhanallah This is a powerful verse. Allah is comforting Mohammed Salah Salem, Allah says Bella I cannot name but
they the clear signs the clear Ayat of Allah subhanho wa Taala they are preserved in the hearts of those or in the chest of breasts of those who have been given the knowledge amongst the people of the Scriptures, they know that these are the clear signs but only the volley moon, the wrongdoers only the oppressors are the ones who who deny the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the polytheists and the wrongdoers those who do not turn to Allah. They are the oppressors. So Allah says, they know the verses, they recognize the verses, but they will only deny if they are oppressors if they are disbelievers. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who accept these verses at all times.
The time is up by mothers and sisters next week by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala we will continue and until then, we say let us conscient eyes, the rest of the people regarding this issue of Valentine's Day.
