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

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:13--> 00:00:28

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa sallim ala l mursaleen. Debbie Now have you been our karate ioannina Mohammed bin Abdullah? Allahu Allah, Allah He was happy he have a lot of solidarity with them with the slim ummah. But

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

the brothers and sisters, we begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala. We asked him for his help, we asked him to open those of goodness for us, we ask him to open those of knowledge for us beneficial knowledge, and we ask him to send his choices of blessings and salutations upon the final messenger, our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path without more sincerity and of the day of karma. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us from the devil

00:01:03--> 00:01:12

who was created from fire? May Allah protect us from his traps. May Allah protect us from his snares? I mean

00:01:15--> 00:01:36

shaitaan was created as a test for us by Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is our sworn enemy. Our maker subhanho wa Taala illustrates this very clearly in sort of father in the Noble Quran, where he informs us in nutshell, Tana laocoon. I do.

00:01:37--> 00:01:58

Indeed, Shere Khan indeed the devil is an enemy and to you all, but does he do what I do? So take him as an enemy. Now the previous class in the tafsir intensive series, we touched on the Tafseer of LSD either. So what is LSD hava? Just to recap, it is the term

00:01:59--> 00:02:13

used for the phrase although Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. Where you seek refuge in the protection you seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala you seek the protection of Allah subhanho wa Taala from the accussed Devin

00:02:18--> 00:02:47

so if you did not tune in for the class and have it linked above or in the description, do watch it. And in that class, I mentioned that that we will be discussing the story of Chapin in the upcoming video and that's the video that you and I are in right now. So inshallah Allah with the help of Allah let us study about our enemy because it's of importance to understand our enemy to know where he's coming from the history behind the animosity between

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

Showtime the devil and mankind, how did it all begin?

00:02:53--> 00:03:04

To understand his traps better to understand his snazz better? So inshallah let's try to cover on as many points as possible in regards to sharpen.

00:03:06--> 00:03:44

So to establish that he is our sworn enemy, and the prophets of ally Masato Salaam who was sent to the different nations of mankind, they want their people they wanted their nations in regards to this individual jacobellis that was around he advises his son use a virus that was Salam in Shavasana. Lil insana adewumi been, indeed the devil for mankind is a clear is a plain and manifest enemy. This is in sort of use of and this animosity it began long, long ago.

00:03:46--> 00:04:15

This individual that we're talking about Chapin otherwise known as he believes, and as per certain narrations in the books of history like the book of Imam advocacy, Rahim Allah I'll be the eo and the higher the book of the beginning. In the end, you find Israelite traditions Israeli yet and what is the principle in regards to Israeli yet? Israelite traditions can be accepted for extra information as long as those

00:04:17--> 00:04:53

narrations don't contradict what we have from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Soleil Islam. So these are Israelite traditions that have been revealed that have been handed over to us from the venomous like eel. So as long as they do not contradict what we have with us from the horrendous Unum and as long as we're not gleaning and deducing rulings from such narrations, there's no harm in in benefiting in terms of information in terms of lessons, there's no harm in benefiting from such narrations. So Mr. Rivera, Casey Rahim online his book will be dionaea and certain other books as well.

00:04:54--> 00:04:57

They go on to talk about the beginning

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

as in the Korean

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

of Adam and his letters lm. So before the creation of mankind, there was another type of creation that existed on earth. And they were known as the jinn and shaitan is from this particular type.

00:05:14--> 00:06:05

And this is captured in the Koran, the fact that shaitaan is from this type. And so to recap, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, kind of energy that he was from the G. Now who are the gin, the gin, they are a creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala they are a creation of Eliza gel that were created from fire as Allah subhanho wa Jalla he says in the Noble Quran in many a place. Well Jana Hakuna who min Kabbalah Minetti Simone, Allah says from fire from a smokeless flame of fire from scorching fire. So they are a different type of creation. Like the angels are a certain type of creation created out of light, and you cannot see the angels, they they are able to fly, they're able to shape shift and

00:06:05--> 00:06:08

transform they're able to take on the shape of other

00:06:10--> 00:06:36

forms of creation like human beings, then yes, you're able to see them but otherwise in their true form, you're not able to witness them. So similarly, the jinn, you're not able to witness them in their true form, unless they shape shift, if they shape shift, if they count the form of an animal, of a dog or cat, a snake or a human being then we are able to see it. And in their true origin in their sense they have been created from fire.

00:06:38--> 00:06:42

This is an important point the fact that you cannot see them

00:06:43--> 00:07:20

unless they take on the form of another being another creation. People at times you know there are when you talk about the jinn, there are many myths, many fables, all kinds of stories and all kinds of beliefs that are in place. The Quran and the Sunnah very clearly teach us about the jinn, my dear brothers and sisters, for example, you go into any village you go into any town I'm sure you'd have a fair share of horror stories. The people there have to tell you, you know, there'll be like for example, this house is haunted.

00:07:21--> 00:07:26

And when you ask them what do you mean haunted? Well, the owner of the house,

00:07:27--> 00:07:50

he roams around he roams around and spooks and terrifies anybody who tries to come in. Firstly, you have to understand many brothers and sisters in Islam as per the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah when a human being passes away, and that's inevitable we're all going to taste that and as a reminder there coolness in a diet bottle not every social inevitability is that when you taste that

00:07:52--> 00:07:57

you move on to another realm known as Alberta, and you cannot come back to it.

00:07:59--> 00:08:25

Now there are these stories and beliefs that certain people hold on to that oh, you know, so and so is trapped in between both the worlds or in between both the realms. These are from other cultures and from other places, media brothers and sisters, the Quran and the Sunnah clearly tell us that the minute we pass away, we move on to the next realm. And we have nothing more to do with this friend.

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

But these other stories they believe, or they will go on to say that the spirits are locked or trapped. And they'll only be released until they exact vengeance or until they get their revenge or until their heart set is and and it's because of that they're that they roam around the spirit rooms around the house and we have seen the owner of the house literally floating around here and there. So now you might be wondering, well, how does one go about explaining that phenomenon? If someone has actually witnessed Okay, so let's say there was a very old

00:09:02--> 00:09:12

lady or gentleman in a particular house and now that person has passed away and now some people see that individual roaming around in the house. How do you how do you explain the phenomenon? Simple, it's the jinn.

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

You see the Djinn as you will study in a bit.

00:09:18--> 00:09:42

Just like in the human realm where you have good human beings and bad human beings. Amidst the Gentoo you have good and righteous Jin, who obviously busy with what they are supposed to be busy with, in terms of the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and good deeds. Likewise you have evil once we're up to mischeif we're up to corruption we're up to chaos.

00:09:43--> 00:09:54

So these types of jinn but they do is if they want to, you know pick a house and make it their brood, you know where they go hang out and you know, I don't know spend time

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

they'd want to spook the people around the neighborhood then terrify the people and not one

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

people to come and disturb them in their lodging in their residence. So what they do is simply put, they take on the form of the person who passed away and spook the people and terrify the people and that's how you will see these and see now and then their original form you cannot see them Allah says in the Quran in the who yurakucho Kabila whom in Haifa, Toronto. Indeed, he Chapin and his tribe, as in the gym, they see you from a place where you cannot see them. So you cannot see them in their original form in their true form. But when they take on the form of a human being, yes, you can. Now there's this story, this hadith of Abu huraira the last one, this is his encounter with

00:10:34--> 00:10:54

Chevron. So how did you see shaitan Shere Khan came to him in the guise of a human being. So just like with the angels, when they take on the form of a human being, you can see them the Hollywood jabril, a man with sparkling by clothes, black hair goes and sits by the prophet sallallaahu Selim, everybody in the gathering saw the man it was the end of the narration, we find out that that man was none other than gibreel Islam.

00:10:56--> 00:11:24

So likewise with the jinn, when they take on the form of an animal when they take on the form of human being, you can see them and that's how they cause mischeif and corruption. May Allah protect us, Allah protect us, I mean, so it's very important that we get get our belief straight. It's very important that we believe in that I think, we believe in but has been transmitted to us through the neuron and the soon after Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa and he was sent him. So now coming back to the story of Siobhan

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

so so it's established that he was from the jinn.

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

Now, before the creation of mankind,

00:11:32--> 00:12:17

the jinn became rebellious, they were causing a lot of mischeif a lot of corruption and whatnot on Earth, so much to the extent that an army of angels was sent down to imprison them to contain them to drive them to banish them to faraway islands. And most of them were contained in such a way. Now, there was one individual and as per certain reports, Israeli Yeah, okay is right like tradition. So they need to be taken with a pinch of salt. His name was as as the, this individual and he was an individual as per one report, very righteous, worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. In a Bada, the angels were impressed, and he was granted permission to go up to the heavens, as per another report,

00:12:17--> 00:12:37

he was taken prisoner and then taken up to the heavens and then he starts to worship Allah subhana wa tada a great deal until he became from the congregation of the angels not from the creation as he was not from the angels by origin. He just, you know, was now participating in their congregations in their assemblies and whatnot.

00:12:39--> 00:12:52

Until the day Allah Subhana Allah proclaims the creation of man. And now this is mentioned in the Noble Quran in Surah Al Baqarah Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, What is all our Boca lil mela?

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

ekati in any

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

field around the Holy

00:13:01--> 00:13:10

corlew orlu attend john houfy HMI UFC doofy YSP could deema

00:13:13--> 00:13:57

one no no sir be Hobi Hamdi Kawano caught the solak all in me Allah mama Tyler moon, what is called Arab book and remember mentioned Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in your Lord said to the angels in each island fill out the halifa so Allah subhanho wa Taala informs the angels in regards to the creation of the minister to set up the angels immediately pose a question although attach alpha men up to the fee how SP could Dima Orla, are you going to place a creation that's going to cause corruption that's going to shed blood? You might be wondering, how, firstly, why did the indisposed this question? Did they do it to defy the command of Allah? Did they do it out of arrogance? No.

00:13:58--> 00:14:09

They were genuinely asking Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two, how did they know? Way before the creation of man. That man would end up the way man is today.

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

The other day was reading

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

from if I'm not mistaken, it was an article

00:14:20--> 00:14:26

or an extract from a book that today when you look around, you no longer see human beings.

00:14:28--> 00:14:32

You see wolves, you see?

00:14:34--> 00:14:39

Animals basically the fox, the wolf, the monkey.

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

The snake in the guise of human beings walking around. It's It's It's a

00:14:49--> 00:14:50

deep

00:14:51--> 00:15:00

statement. And it's talking about the negative qualities of these animals. They take the fox it's slightly it's cunning human beings are becoming

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

I am very cunning, conniving.

00:15:03--> 00:15:09

If you take the snake, it's very it's poisonous, it's toxic, and human beings have become that.

00:15:12--> 00:15:27

You see, if you take the bull for example, it's a I mean, the world is a beautiful animal, but it does have its predatory qualities as well. So human beings become predatory, they become very, you know, like carnivores, when it comes to one another.

00:15:29--> 00:15:30

So,

00:15:31--> 00:15:39

how you might be wondering, how did the angels know that mankind will end up the way mankind is? Panama?

00:15:40--> 00:15:43

Were those shots in the dark or

00:15:44--> 00:15:55

did they know about the future? The answer to that is also very simple. It was based, it was based on their experience with the gin that their bitter experience with the gym this one about the gym did

00:15:57--> 00:16:16

and they were asking Allah subhanho wa Taala very innocently, this creation is this creation going to be like the gym? Allah subhanho wa Taala he responds, boiler in sunny la muma Dynamo Indeed, I know that which you know not,

00:16:18--> 00:16:30

no other man is allowed to salon was created by Eliza gel cheban at that point known as either as a zero release z was amidst the angels and as an aeration.

00:16:32--> 00:16:39

That is recorded the book of Imam Muslim, Ramallah and a symptomatic of the last one who he reposted the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said,

00:16:40--> 00:17:18

lemma so what Allahu Adam afinil Jenna taraka who Masha Allah a trucker for Jana evaline su u t will be young Lula ma Hua falam edgeworth out of under Holika Holika anleitung Malak so when Allah subhanho wa Taala formed atomizer to Islam in Jenna, he left him as long as he built to leave him and share Donna walks around the other malaise that was alum looking to see you know, very curious, inquisitive, wants to know what he wants. When he saw that he was hollow, as in that there's this cavity inside him is hollow, he knew that what was created was something that could not control itself.

00:17:19--> 00:17:37

So many brothers and sisters, from the very beginning, it's it's almost like you're suffering from this inferiority complex. And in all honesty, it is that you know, he felt very inferior and he wanted to prove himself as being superior.

00:17:39--> 00:17:44

So this was his doing now at this point and now you'll see where this leads to.

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

The day comes

00:17:48--> 00:18:09

or the rather the commander of Allah subhanho wa Taala is issued. And this Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions of the Koran in a number of places. So let's look at the mention in sutra Baccarat Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says, What is ordinarily lamella egotist Judo only the

00:18:10--> 00:18:11

first Sanjay

00:18:15--> 00:18:25

ebene is and remember when we said to the angels, who's to Dooley Adam, this powerful command of Eliza which will prostrate unto Adam Alice Ladouceur first

00:18:28--> 00:18:40

Illa he believes they all prostrated and how want you to picture this scene, a sea of angels, you know, for

00:18:41--> 00:18:53

those of you participated in big congregations when you're going to ombre, you're when you're in a big congregation, and when the entire congregation falls down in sujood.

00:18:55--> 00:19:03

There's this sense of unison as we all comply to the commandment of Allah azza wa jal. So you have this sea of angels falling down in sajida.

00:19:04--> 00:19:14

And one lone figure standing in the distance, defying the commandment of Allah, defying the Lord of all worlds,

00:19:15--> 00:19:16

in

00:19:17--> 00:19:21

in early days, it was shirt on it was a release

00:19:22--> 00:19:34

was stuck about oh my god, I mean, theory when he rejected a bar was stacked bar and he became proud he became arrogant.

00:19:36--> 00:19:39

What kind of mean and carefree and it became of those who rejected

00:19:41--> 00:19:48

this is why my dear brothers and sisters pride arrogance is detested by our maker. It is a bird

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

because it leads you down a destructive path. And think about it how many of us today we look around, we see all of our materialistic possessions that we have amassed

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

We look at we look at our degrees, our qualifications and we pride ourselves over all of this, do we not?

00:20:08--> 00:20:12

We look at our dimensions we look at what we own, what we wear,

00:20:13--> 00:20:23

the wealth that we have. And we think to ourselves, it is I who amassed all of this it's because of my talent to my abilities.

00:20:24--> 00:20:48

We completely eliminate a lot from the equation. My dear brother, my dear sister for you, too. For you and me, for us to lift our fingers. We need the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala the next breath of mine for me to inhale and exhale for me to inhale and exhale. I need the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what am i priding myself for a weakling?

00:20:50--> 00:21:31

Whenever she tries to creep in and tries to push you into the same pit that he fell into, remind yourself about the power of Allah, La hawla wala quwata illa Billah there's no power no mind except from Allah. I am nothing I'm a weakling I'm a weakling. I'm nothing if Allah wills in the next second, my dear brother for your heart to stop my dear sister, your heart stops and you fall down. You can have the biggest bank account, you can be holding the most powerful office in the world. You can be the most powerful man or woman you can be the most richest man or woman with Allah wills that you fall you fall.

00:21:34--> 00:21:39

We are subjects of this powerful King, this powerful Lord.

00:21:40--> 00:21:50

Let us turn to Him that does not give into arrogance. He hates arrogance in Allah Hello he bucola mata info. May Allah protect us from arrogance May Allah protect us from pride I mean,

00:21:51--> 00:21:57

so Chapin stands define the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it was asked

00:21:59--> 00:22:04

why? What prevented you from complying what prevented you from prostrating?

00:22:06--> 00:22:39

And he goes on to give in further, giving further he lets the viers the fires of pride and arrogance. Consume him and destroy him. Says I know what you mean. I am better than him. Hello kutani minnaar wahala Kota, whom in green, I am better than him. You created me out of fire and you created him out of clay. Clay, why should I prostrate unto him? He was the first media brothers, media sisters, to compare today. You have

00:22:41--> 00:22:41

people,

00:22:42--> 00:23:02

human beings have given into racism. We've given into bigotry. They're racist, they're bigots. They compare themselves they think of themselves superior because of the color of their skin. They think of themselves superior because of their citizenship. They think of themselves superior because of holding a certain passport.

00:23:04--> 00:23:07

Are we all not the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:09--> 00:23:14

This is exactly what Chopin did and all these individuals who are doing that they're following the footsteps of the devil

00:23:16--> 00:23:20

in the prop themselves as being superior.

00:23:21--> 00:23:23

May Allah protect us?

00:23:24--> 00:23:34

arrogance, pride. So he says I'm better I'm, you know, he, he was in this delusion. Fire is better than clay.

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

So why should I prostrate

00:23:39--> 00:24:25

in Surah Surah Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentions, what is the owner lil mela egotist Judo Nia Mufasa jado illa a burly is 17th chapter I in number 61 Allah says and mentioned and remember when we said to the angels was to do the Adam prostrate unto Adam fussa do they all prostrated? illa ebene is except for Iblees call us JOE DOOLEY man hi laputa Tina, he says Should I ask you to do lemon Hello Tina. Should I prostrate to the one you created from clay? He's inferior I'm superior Why should I prostrate unto him?

00:24:26--> 00:24:45

Eliza gel banishes him except if Zionism is banished Allah says call and have from Entebbe are coming home for in Johanna images are open Jessa Mo Farah. Go and whoever follows you indeed hell will be the recompense of you.

00:24:46--> 00:24:50

And at this juncture, my dear brothers and sisters, you might think the past is filled with regret.

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

He's filled with regret perhaps he cries out Robbie color of B Oh my Lord and you're thinking okay, maybe it's filled with regret.

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

Under knee, Eli Omi used to grant me despite, Grant me some time until the day of them

00:25:11--> 00:25:21

and look at the magnanimous nature of our make this individual who defied the command of Allah, Who is adequate who is proud Allah grants his wish and he says for in a criminal matter in

00:25:24--> 00:25:37

indeed you are from those who have been granted respond. And now what does he say? All our our baby mama, wait Ernie, all my lord because you misled me.

00:25:39--> 00:25:58

See, this is where pride leads you. Pride blinds you it arrogance blinds you from the truth and that is the definition of pride. It makes you turn away from the truth. You refuse to accept the truth. Because you want to prove that you are right that you are correct.

00:25:59--> 00:26:02

So you become blind, you become stubborn, you become arrogant. This is what he did.

00:26:03--> 00:26:24

Bheema wait and he you misled me because you lis misled me. And then he goes on to challenge Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm going to mislead mankind I will. I will be binding ID him on shrimali him. I'm going to be from there right from the left mislead them and lead them astray. He challenges Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:26:25--> 00:26:33

this individual look at how low he fell. He was righteous he was worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala but because he gave into pride

00:26:35--> 00:26:47

he consumed and destroyed himself. So he was banished he was chasing Oh, he was chased away. And this is why min ash shaytani r Rajim the one a cursed and thrown away.

00:26:49--> 00:26:57

So for now shaytan is temporarily out of the picture. Allah subhanho wa Taala commands, admonish letters.

00:26:59--> 00:27:10

And just before that, in total Baccarat Allah Allah melasma akula, some of the human animal advisor to Islam, our father was taught a smart Aquila.

00:27:11--> 00:27:17

All the types of knowledge, the names of everything was taught knowledge from allies origin.

00:27:19--> 00:27:31

And then it was commanded. Yeah, Adam mozcon Antonio colgin Oh, Adam, you and your spouse of a mother, how wild is led to Islam reside and live in this garden,

00:27:33--> 00:27:34

reside in this abode.

00:27:38--> 00:27:43

So shaytan he's out of the picture. Did he remain out of the picture?

00:27:45--> 00:27:49

Or did he now attempt to try and foil things for other malice?

00:27:51--> 00:27:56

Did he attempt to come in and whisper unto our father other malice that was solemn and how is that

00:27:58--> 00:28:39
