Today inshallah I want to go through a very important part of the Quran. But before that this is a part that is mentioned in sort of baccarat before I go through that part I want to explain sort of Bukhara from a bird's eye view exactly what sort of Bukhara is because a lot of times, we recite Surah Baqarah and there are so many themes installed Bukhara, and a lot of times any person who's reading so the Bacara they really are wondering that what is the connection between all these different themes mentioned in sort of backdrop? So I want to give them first of all a bird's eye view of us with a Bukhara is so that next time when you're reading sort of Bukhara, you have a

00:00:37--> 00:01:21

little more appreciation for sort of Bukhara ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala he begins with a Bukhara by by responding to a request. The request is made from the human being Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we always say so the Fatiha Idina surat al Mustafi serata Latina and I'm Tara Lee him right in MacDougal Allah, human at Bali, oh Allah show us the right path, the path of those whom You have bestowed Your honor upon and also show us the paths of those who have either went astray or they have incurred your anger as a result of this request that we make every single time. Allah subhanho wa Taala responds with Soudal Bukhara so the Quran in itself the the Quran begins with the Bukhara

00:01:21--> 00:02:06

but the Quran itself is like a roadmap that takes you to Jana, and all this way to Jana, there are bumps or bruises, there are detours that you have to take when you punch in your address on Google Maps to go anywhere. It tells you along the way that if there is an accident, take this route and you'll get to your destination quicker. Likewise, when we studied the Quran, the Quran is a roadmap to Jannah and it tells us about the pitfalls of the people of the past. It tells us about situations and how to handle proper situations. So pseudo Bukhara begins with Allah honoring the request of the human being. And Allah is telling us you want guidance, I'm giving you guidance that Ecole Kitab la

00:02:06--> 00:02:46

Reiber fee, there are so many books that you will find. You will find mistakes and you will find books that have ambiguity in it. Allah is saying love ye Buffy, there is no shred of doubt in this book. There is no shred of ambiguity in this book. And Allah says who doesn't live in after Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions three different groups. He mentioned the believers, he mentioned the kuffaar and then he mentioned the Munna fit own. And subhanAllah was interesting to note is that yes, in a time when the Prophet saw a sudden them when we talk about the mafia, oh, and we always understand that they were they would refer to themselves as Muslims, but they had hypocrisy and

00:02:46--> 00:03:28

Nefab traits in their heart and in their actions. But when Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about these three groups, out of the three groups, he talks most extensively on the hypocrites and their traits. Why? Because Subhan Allah, whether you are a Muslim, or a cafe, there are those who are the munafo own. There are those munaf own who are amongst the Muslims, and those who love people who are amongst the non Muslims. So Allah subhanho wa taala, he talks about the munaf written extensively. Then after that, just like he's talked about three groups, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about three different creations. Allah talked about the mala Iike, he talked about the gins, and he talked about

00:03:28--> 00:04:10

the human being. All three groups mentioned in one passage, when ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala said, in Niger, you don't fill out the Khalifa, who is he talking to? He's talking to the mullah Iike. The Malayaka are saying to Allah subhanho wa taala, that this world has already been inhabited by gins and they commit crimes. So the now the jinns are covered. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says no, but I want to create the human race. And this human race is different in the ILM Omala to Allah moon, there is something I know about this human race that you're not aware of. And then subtle. Bukhara goes into this deep discussion about the development of a new OMA the development of a new

00:04:10--> 00:04:52

nation. And that is the Nation of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the ummah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, And subhanAllah next time you're reading through the Bacara, pay close attention, because when a new nation is being developed, first of all, Allah subhanho wa Taala is so merciful, Allah is telling us, You are a new nation, you are going to inshallah be successful. But you have to understand that there were other tribes or other nations before you that I gave them an honor, but because they did not uphold that covenant, they turned that covenant into a convenience. They changed the deen whenever they wanted. And as a result, I took that privilege away from them,

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

and I gave it to you, oh ma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Allah goes into a deep discussion of the Quran.

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

My name is Bani Israel, one after another Allah He lists and he mentioned their crimes and their transgression against Allah subhanho wa taala. And this is in itself a Rama from Allah, Allah Krishna said, Don't do this and don't do that. But Allah told us don't do this and don't do that. But the same time let me give you an example. Also, as human beings we always learn from examples when I'm doing math, the teacher shows that this is a formula, but then they they exercise that formula they show you how to apply that formula. They give you exercises to give you examples, the human being understand from examples. So Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us an example he gave us

00:05:41--> 00:06:24

Bonita saw even the mention of bunny is saw eel and then Allah subhanho wa taala. Ana, he talks about the development of a new nation. When you talk about the development of a new nation. You're talking about a development and Afghan and laws and rulings. And so the buckler was revealed in Medina in Makkah, there was a a focus on Tauheed rissalah akhira the end of previous nations when the Prophet saw some migrated to Medina, now this is where all the Afghan were coming in one by one first of all, Allah subhanho wa Taala he changed up the blur that going forward based on luck, this is no longer your tabler. Now the Kaaba Maca is now your is your, your Qibla then Allah subhana wa

00:06:24--> 00:07:05

Taala talks about after that what is bit Allah subhanho wa Taala he talks about Lacell Bureau and Tuvalu How come people all mushed up? Well, Margaret, after that there was a fasting that didn't exist before in the early days of Islam. Now with the development of a new nation, Allah changed the laws of fasting. Now Allah says for men Shahe them in commercia Hara fully Assam and after that Allah subhanho wa Taala does mention that many of us are not aware of that there was a law of fasting in place before our current law of fasting. And that was that before this is a Hadith mentioned in Bihari by Barah, even algebra the Allah one that there was a man by the name of face

00:07:05--> 00:07:50

the rule was that if you came and if you slept after Iftar then after that all the rules in the outcome of fasting apply to you. After you went to sleep. A man by the name of face came home exhausted from work, he told his wife, of course go get some food for thought. After he thought he went to sleep when he woke up the laws of fasting already apply to him and he could not eat till the next day later on Allah subhanho wa Taala he changed that rule. And he says oh, hey, Leila, come later see me refer to Allah Anissa Yquem holy basil lecom want to leave us alone. He says further on Roku loo wash Rabu hut yet evasion Hola, como Hi, it will RBL male hytrel Eswatini al Fajr. Allah

00:07:50--> 00:08:32

subhanho wa Taala made it very clear. You can eat and drink, drink and and be with your spouses till fajr time comes in. If you're the GM of fasting do not begin after you go to sleep. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions hij there was already a house that existed at the time of the Prophet Salam, a hijab was practiced by the Quraysh. Now Allah is saying, this is a new nation there, they're going to have a hijab, but there's going to be different laws regarding their hygiene and Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentioned after that the laws of hygiene, then there are so many other verses that began with yes Aluna aka Yes, alorica and a healer. And there are so many other yes

00:08:32--> 00:09:16

Aluna can how many well Mason so many different questions coming to the Prophet SAW Salem about things that didn't exist, but Allah subhanho wa Taala He sent down different akam regarding those matters, why because now a new Ummah, is in production. And then Allah subhanho wa taala, he finishes off the sutra with economic laws, because economic rules and laws always existed. But when it comes to Islamic economic laws, the one key thing about Islamic economic laws is that it always puts both parties in an advantaged position. It always gives leverage to both parties. The current capitalist system is such that one is advantage and one is at a disadvantage. The beauty of Islamic

00:09:16--> 00:09:59

economics has always been the AQS both parties at an advantage position. So this is what sootel Baccarat is so next time we return to the Bacara you understand exactly what this where all these ideas are coming from and what is the goal of Allah subhanho wa Taala Now, here's the key point in all this, in all this, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam. And he mentioned the story of Ibrahim Ali isa building the Kaaba and establish establishing the city of Mecca. And the reason why I want to quickly highlight upon this is that when you talk about the development of a new nation, yes, there can be laws. Yes, there can be an outcome that the ruler or

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

the king can

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

implement and put in place, but at the same time, who's living in that city? who is living in that place? When you talk about the development of a new country, there's laws are passed, but at the same time who needs to implement those laws? Is the citizens of the country right? Yes or no? Likewise, Allah subhanho wa Taala is revealing the outcome. But Allah subhanho wa Taala say, what can you do on your end? What can the OMA do on their end to ensure that the OMA is going and is moving in the right direction? Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us a story of Ibrahim alayhis salam and the reason why he gives us a story is because we till today we refer to Ibrahim as our forefather

00:10:45--> 00:10:48

when the Prophet SAW Salem at the time of

00:10:49--> 00:11:34

Aloha when he says when the Sahaba as my head the hill Avahi What is this old here he says heavy his sunnah to a be calm. He referred to Ibrahim Ali Salam as your father and this is why till today, by the way, for this reason we send our Peace and blessings upon Ibrahim it Islam we say Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad while early Mohammed come oscillator, Allah Ibrahim, why? Because one one reason is because he's considered as a forefather of this ummah. This is where it all began. He had two children is married in his heart, from his heart came burning saw it from Israel came Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and not only that, but at the time of Israel will Mirage

00:11:34--> 00:12:20

when he went to the seven skies at the seven sky when he met Ibrahim alayhis salam Ibrahim Ali Hassan was the only one who said to the province Salam that convey my Salaams to your alma as a result of him conveying his Salaams to us till today we send our Peace and blessings upon Ibrahim Allah you Psalm and the URL of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned the story why? Because as an example for us is as if listen to this very carefully it is as if Allah is telling us as parents, as fathers as mothers, that if you want to ensure that the OMA is moving in the right direction, you have to do a proper therapy of your child. And this is what we learned from

00:12:20--> 00:13:09

Ibrahim Ali get some as a father, he first was a person who call who answered the call of Allah subhanho wa Taala incident Bacara Allah says, What EDB Tana Ibrahima boo hoo be Kalimantan for uttama. When he ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada tested Ibrahim, one after another, and he passed each one and not just pass each one. But he passed each one with flying colors, and he scored high in each test that came from Allah subhanho wa taala. This in itself is the first lesson for all of us as parents that if we want to ensure that our upcoming generations are going to be on D and then the very first thing is as parents, we need to also be on Deen just like Ibrahim Ali Hassan was on his Deen we as

00:13:09--> 00:13:50

parents, we have to be on our deen and brothers and sisters will Allah it is so sad when I have youth coming to my office. Why when I have other people coming into my office that their parents have cut off from them. Why? Because they want to practice religion, how many times our youth they want to have a marriage the Islamic way. But yet the parents are insisting that no, we will have a marriage but we'll have music and that we will have mixing in that and so forth. Our children want to go in the right direction. And a lot of times our parents are taking the children in the wrong direction. Brothers and sisters if we as parents, if we want our upcoming generations to be on Dean

00:13:50--> 00:14:29

than we as first as parents, we have to be on Dean and why do you think Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he emphasized upon this when it comes to a marriage. I'm not gonna go on a tangent over here. But I want all of us to think about this when the property is some talks about marriage. And he says that when you find a person who has deen and Holyoke, then further we do that gets your daughters married to them. Why? Because Dean and o'clock are the two most important things yet today, we find so many of our young men, so many of our young men, they want to go and get married to either someone who has an anarchy tab. I'm not saying the Quran has given permission for it. But

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

think about it. What's going to happen to your upcoming generations. What's going to happen to our upcoming generations. When these are the women that we're trying to marry. They have no they have no deal Allah times in their life. And that is why children in that marriage, they grow up when I ask those same men when I'm conducting the Nikka and I'm asking those same men how do you intend to teach your children Dean? Think about the future get married to a woman who has Dina o'clock in their life? And they say that well Islam has been

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

permitted me. And I asked this one simple question that how will you teach your kids in the future? If you don't have Dean and she doesn't have Dean, where's your kids gonna stand? And they say that you know what, when our children grow up, we will give them the choice. This is not the mentality of a Muslim. As a Muslim, we have to understand that if I have children today, if I have four children, those four children, they have four children. That's already 16 Right there, those 16 If they have even two more children 32 Two generations later, I have 32 children and their deen the stability of their deen is in my hands. That is what we learn from Ibraheem Alehissalaam. Another thing that we

00:15:41--> 00:15:52

learned from Ibrahim alayhis salam, as being someone who is who is establishing Deen for the next generation is that he did not just do good by himself, but he made sure that Ismar

00:15:53--> 00:16:33

who was the only living area at that time of his he was supporting him and his cause he's building the Kaaba alongside with his father. And then after that, he's making dua for this place. This is something else that we learned from Ibrahim Ali and his son, as parents that we make dua for our children, we make dua for upcoming generations, brothers and sisters, when you look at all the fitness are going on, does it ever wonder to us that do we ever think about this? What's going to happen to my progeny, my generations, two generations later, what's going to happen to all these children? If I'm not going to teach my kids Dean, if I'm not going to be if I'm not going to enforce

00:16:33--> 00:16:55

Dean upon them? I'm not going to hold this upon them, then what's going to happen in the upcoming generations? And finally we learn and all this but the beautiful thing is that when a father often passes away, what do they tell their children, take care of your mother take care of this take care of that my assets here my assets there when it came to Ibrahim alayhis salam.

00:16:56--> 00:17:45

The most important thing that he taught his child was well what saw Bihar Ibrahim Alberni he wiped out boo yah bunny Yeah. In Allah has stuff Harlequin with Dina Fela in one Thomas Simone. When he's passing away, he's not talking about anything else. He's talking about the importance of Fela tomato tuna. Illa Antimo. Simone, make sure that you die on Islam, make sure you are committed to Islam and Subhan Allah as a result of Ibrahim alayhis salam, the same thing happens with Yaqoob Islam, the very next ayah Allah says, I'm going to Shuhada in Hatha Yoga gooble mouth but he saw eel said that this is not the deen Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling but he saw in I'm going to Shuhada where you

00:17:45--> 00:18:34

present there is how to react gooble mode when when you are overriding Islam is about to enter the last phase of his life he's about to pass away is all Alberni Hema taboo. Remember the he's asking his kids who will you worship after me? They said all Luna boo Isla Hakka We will worship your Lord meaning Allah subhanho wa Taala what Isla ha ICA and we will worship the Lord of our forefathers who are their forefathers. Ibrahima? What is smart ILA. What is Harper Illa? Hanwha. Haider, when a hula hula Muslim on even some think about it, first Ibrahim, how do you some does it and as the Father does, the Son does also Ibrahim Ali you some is reminding his children at the time of his death that

00:18:34--> 00:19:14

make sure you stick to Islam Jacoba Islam at the time of his death, he's reminding his children to to stick to Islam. So this is why brothers and sisters, it is very important for all of us that when it comes to our children, yes, we do the therapy of our children. Yes, we care for our children. But Will Allah He think about Ibrahim it is some think about the vision of Ibrahim Ali's son. He's not only thinking about his immediate children, he's thinking about generations forward. He's thinking about generations forward, do you and I do we ever sit down and think what's going to happen to my generations going forward? Now I want to make this very clear. If you are a person who did his

00:19:14--> 00:19:52

responsibility, who did her responsibility in the third year of their children, and then later on, there was something that happened to the children, and they deviated that doesn't come back on you on the Day of Judgment. But if we did not do our job correctly, if we do not do our job correctly as parents, and then our children, they deviate later on into generations. This comes back on us. This comes back on us. This is why we have to be very careful. And we have to be very cognizant of the fact that where are we going with our children? First of all, we learned once again,

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

he has to first practice himself, get his child involved, make dua for his upcoming generations and then not

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

Not only that, but making sure that even as we'll see, the the most the best thing that we can leave for our children is that when we pass away, they should say that if there's one thing my father taught me if there was one thing that my mother taught me was to stick to Islam, and I want to leave you on this with a DUA, what do I know that we can make for our upcoming generations in the same passage Subhanallah there's a dua for us also, Allah subhanho wa taala. He says Rob burner after they built the Kaaba, they said after Ibrahim Ali some smiling some collectively they built the Kaaba. They said Robin Attica Bill Mina in the entire seminar room after that, they said Rob burner,

00:20:40--> 00:21:24

wotja muesli meanie laka Yeah, Allah make us from amongst those who are submissive to you. Who are is who are who is answering your call, who is submitting themselves to you Oh Allah subhanho wa Taala and then he says, Woman Zuri Yeah, Tina, Oh Martin Muslim Attalla and also my upcoming generations that are going to come make them, make them Muslims also make us make them also people who will submit to you what are the phenomena Sequana what Toba Alena and show us the monastic the monastic is usually in reference to hij you have the rights of hygena was delivered out of what to do in height. This is usually the monastic But Sonia Allama they say that on a broader scale from

00:21:24--> 00:22:01

you know, on a broader level, the word monastic also could imply the rights of life, every single thing that's part of our study, I could be also classified as a monastic. What are the monastic gonna show us what we need to do in our life in order to be successful? Well, Tuba Alena and forgive us for our shortcomings. In Nikka, Anta to Weber Rahim so this is a dua that is also mentioned in this passage, and I request you that even for our upcoming generations, for our upcoming children, for them to be steadfast upon their Deen, this is a dua that we should all make inshallah and once again, I just wanted to share with you this is something that we learned from the story of Ibrahim

00:22:01--> 00:22:21

Ali your son, I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us the Tofig to apply the teachings of the Quran. May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep our children steadfast upon the deen and may Allah Subhana Allah subhanho wa Taala keep our future generations steadfast upon the dean, the Dean of Islam Ameloblastoma and what is that Kamala?
