So how long will you talk to people one of the biggest obstacle when it comes to understanding the Quran is that we truly don't understand the what is the intricacies the nuances, the connection between the stories and if you ask anyone that what exactly is the connection between the stories and the sutra, a lot of times people have simply have no idea and it's for this reason that we don't have any appreciation for the Quran. Today inshallah I want to share with you sootel majeeda so that my EDA isn't the six Josie starts in the six jewels The finish is often the seven jewels and inshallah want to draw a very important lesson from this but Allah subhanho wa Taala he revealed

00:00:40 --> 00:01:25

this surah as one of the last Madani sutras. In fact, if you study this entire Surah from beginning to end, Allah subhanho wa Taala he is talking to the Muslims after this after Islam had been sent after Islam had been completed and is found in this same sutra, the ayah Allah Yama, XML Tula come Dena come what month to lay company it will lead to Islam Medina, that today we have completed this religion for you. And We have sent down this mercy and this this honor of Islam upon you will lead to that community stop Medina and we are pleased with Islam as your religion and your way of life. This is found in this sutra. So I want you to understand that Islam is complete. Now in that sense,

00:01:25 --> 00:02:06

the Muslims are in a position of authority, the Muslims are now taken very seriously in the entire world, especially in that region of the world amongst the Romans, the Sassanids, the or the Byzantines and so forth. And they're taking serious they have honored they have you know MK Fatah MK has already taken place. Now usually what happens is that when you're in a position of weakness, usually you just go with the flow. But as you come into a position of power and authority, most nations before they will take advantage of other people, they will say that now we're in a position of power. Now we don't stick to the same rules. Now the rules have changed. Now that we are in a

00:02:06 --> 00:02:49

position of power, we will violate anyone as we wish And subhanAllah Allah subhanho wa Taala is reminding the entire Ummah, that even though now you are in a position of power, you're in a position of prestige and authority, you still will not violate anyone else's rights and Subhanallah Allah begins the surah by saying what Yeah, are you Hallerin Amano Oh full bill are good. Oh people, oh Muslims, fulfill your covenants, fulfill your commitments fulfill your promises. So from the beginning from the beginning of the Quranic revelation, till now Islam is complete, every single thing that you have learned now that you're in a position of power, do not just let it go. Now this

00:02:49 --> 00:03:27

is the time where you establish your deen, this is a time that now you stick to your deen And subhanAllah right after that. Allah subhana wa that talks about what food is allowed to consume, what food is not allowed to consume. Because once again, Allah is reminding us that now you're in a position of power. Now you have authority to not feel like you can start violating the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala the dietary laws are still in place when it comes to your family who you can marry who you cannot marry. That's mentioned also in the same surah Allah subhana wa Taala then talks about Salat. And that's a reminder for all of us that just because now you're in a position of power

00:03:27 --> 00:04:11

and authority, you don't let go of those things that got you here to this position that got you here to this to this honor. And so you take care of your Salaat Allah subhanho wa Taala in the same sutra, he talks about Bani Israel Eid, that they also had an honor when they were able to cross over and fit out and his army drowned and they were destroyed. They come they are now in society and anyone who looks at them they will say that this is a very honorable community. Allah subhana wa that talks about them that how after they were honored by Allah, they turned against Allah subhanho wa Taala and they were given a land by Allah subhanho wa Taala to go and conquer that piece of land.

00:04:11 --> 00:04:54

And what did they say? Instead of being thankful to Allah subhana wa to Ana, they show their audacity to Allah subhanho wa Taala they show their arrogance to Allah subhanho wa Taala and they said to Musa alayhis salam inhabitant our Abu Kapha Katella in Hoonah, Croydon, in fact, you and your Rob go and fight and when you have conquered this land, then you tell us and we will come into we will come into that land, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala as a result of their arrogance, Allah subhanho wa Taala said Bala for in maha Rama to lay him out of our inner center for the next 40 years, this land has become prohibited for you and the most and these people the below bunnies saw it. They

00:04:54 --> 00:04:59

wandered into a desert for 40 years. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala he brings more stories about bunnies

00:05:00 --> 00:05:40

About you, and the advocator. And then Allah subhanho wa taala. And the Jews, he brings up the idea that I shared the other day that the cause of corruption in your society is when you see these wrong things taking place, and you stay quiet, that's a cause of corruption in your society. And then Allah subhana talks about the prohibition of alcohol, ALLAH SubhanA, WA Tada talks about other things. And if you look at once again, either from beginning to end, Allah is telling the ummah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and especially the Muslim community at that time, that now that Allah has given you that honor, do not let go of your commandments, do not let go of your

00:05:40 --> 00:06:16

commitments. Now, usually in a position of power of authority, as I said, you're in a position of weakness, the game is different. We're in a position of power. A lot of times people take advantage of others Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if there's one thing that he truly taught us, and I'm going to share with you a story, we learned from this story, that no matter what it is, you always give people their due, right? Always take care of people do not take things away from people. And so the Haisla think about this every person who's in a position of authority, whether you're in a position of authority and work, whether you're in a position of authority, when it comes to other

00:06:16 --> 00:06:52

people, you are the boss of other people, there are people working underneath you and so forth. What happens a lot of times is we take things from others and we give it to others. We violate other people's rights and we give it to others. And so the thing is that we have to understand from the seat of Azula Salah that you don't take advantage of other people, you don't take things from other people and give to other people, because this will create facade in the heart. This will cause some kind of pain in the heart of that person. So I want to share with you share with you the story of Earthman even at Tahara Viola line, or it's not even Pearl Harbor the hola Juan was the same man

00:06:53 --> 00:07:37

that after the Hijrah to Medina, there was a family the family of OMA selama abou selama Radi Allahu Anhu uma they were divided and they were separated at the time of Hijra. Abu Salim I reached Medina, OMA Selma got caught up with her within her own tribe. And then there was their child, their child was someone else. The families did not let them make Hijra in a peaceful way to Medina. So they were divided for almost one year after the family said, okay, you know what they told him in Selma, you can go, you can go to Medina, she was able to be reunited with her family, who was that person who brought Omar selama all the way to Medina. It was my aha, he was a Muslim at that time. But there

00:07:37 --> 00:08:20

was one thing that was there was a clear distinction about that family that they have. They had above all other families and that was, they had the keys of the Kaaba. They had the keys of the Kaaba, this family had the keys to the Kaaba. So the keys of the Kaaba was not in his hand. It was in the hands of his father, when his father passed away in the Battle of heard that responsibility of the keys of the Kaaba, were then handed over to us my natal Ha, at that time, he was a Muslim. Later on, it is mentioned in some books that perhaps before the hijra, or even after he died during the conquest, at the time of for the BIA. When the Prophet saw someone to perhaps go inside the

00:08:20 --> 00:09:03

Kaaba or thrive mental health because he had the keys, he will decide who will go inside the Kaaba and who will not go inside the Kaaba. And one time, perhaps before the hijra, he stopped Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from entering inside the Kaaba and Rasulullah saw someone told him, they remember Osman, that day will come that these keys are going to be in my hand, and then I will get to decide who I give it to afterwards. And that stuck with us via the what exactly is the province I'm talking about here. Now years later, for Tomica takes place. And the problems are some is coming. He's marching into Makkah, he sends at that time are trying to tell how finds out the

00:09:03 --> 00:09:40

poverty son was coming. He goes to the Kaaba, he locks the Kaaba, he goes back home. And according to some books and some narrations he either kept the key or according to some narrations, he gave the key to his mother and said that these people are coming do not give them the key. This is the only thing that we have. And if you're gonna give it to them, we have nothing. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he sent a book or the Allah one and beloved or the Allahu Allah and He says, Go and get the keys of the Kaaba, I want to enter inside the Kaaba. So they went to the house of Osmani Matala or the Allah Juan at that time, of course, not a Muslim yet. So he went to the he

00:09:40 --> 00:10:00

went to their they went to his home and the mother refused that I will not give you the keys, do whatever you want, you know joke which Pednekar law, okay, I will give you the keys. So the professor says okay, fine. I'm gonna send my next guy. I'm gonna hit Bob. Okay, so I'm gonna hit Bob he comes and before

00:10:00 --> 00:10:07

He could even reach the house. He says Oh Mother of Earth man hand me the keys without a single word took the keys and gave it to ultimate.

00:10:09 --> 00:10:13

You don't want to mess with almond ricotta, okay. That's his personality, okay. So

00:10:14 --> 00:10:56

he takes the keys he brings it to the Prophet sallallahu it was send them. The problem is that somebody opens the Kaaba, he walks inside, all the idols, took them out, destroy the idols, clean out the Kaaba, pray to the gods salaat and he came outside of the Kaaba. Now at that time, you have to understand that all the Reishi tribes, they had different responsibilities. So the tribe of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe, Salam bunu, Hashem, they were given the responsibility of providing water, to those who are performing hajj, that was their responsibility. So the responsibility of carrying the keys and holding on to the keys belong to the tribe of where the tribe that Northman with Allah

00:10:56 --> 00:11:36

he belong to. And these are two different tribes. So what happened was that Abbas the uncle, the Prophet, sallAllahu, alayhi, wa sallam, he comes to the prophesy some and he says, yes to Allah, this is our golden opportunity. Give us the keys, and we but no Hashem, not only are we going to have the authority to give water to the project, but then we're going to have the keys also, and this tribe is going to be deprived, give us the keys. Now, I want you to think let's pause here for a moment and think about this. The Prophet SAW Saddam is also from the new Hashem. And here his own family is telling him that this hold on to the keys now we have power, we have the authority, we

00:11:36 --> 00:12:15

have the upper hand now in Makkah, no one can tell us what to do in Makkah anymore. So let us keep the keys, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he never took advantage of his position, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he always fulfill the covenants, he always fulfill his promises and his commitments. And he never took away things from others. And so he said, Go call us monumental, ha. And he called us monumental half. And he says, what was fun? Do you remember? I told you remember the day I told you that I will have the keys in my hand. Now that day has come, I have the keys in my hand. And that's when he said that when you told me that time, I never believed you.

00:12:15 --> 00:12:57

Now I have no doubt at that time or time until he said that I testify that there is none worthy of worship but Allah and Muhammad Rasulullah Salam is his messenger. He took his shahada, and then he's thinking what's the province I'm going to do? Ibis is saying there was the province of so I'm going to do and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he took the keys and he put it back in the hands of the Earth, monumental ha or the Allah one. And he said, that these keys shall remain in your family, till the Day of Judgment, and only a person who is an open volume and open oppressor. So take the keys away from your family and till today, by the way till today, even though we there's a

00:12:57 --> 00:13:36

kingdom there, the fam the keys of the Kaabah they remain in the family of Earthman, NFL high till today, till today, when the government when they want to go inside the Kaaba, they come to their family, there is an agreement whenever we want it, you have to give it to us, they come to them. But the keys of the Kaaba till today is in the ancestry of Earth monumental whether you're low until today, so Hala. So what we learned from this story is that we're always going to be in a position of power of authority, but we don't violate other people's rights. We don't ever take advantage of our position. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even after the Battle of brother, when his son in

00:13:36 --> 00:14:10

law was there, he never took advantage. He asked the Sahaba if it's okay with you, can I send my son in law back to Makkah, he never said, You know what, I'm in power. I'm Rasul Allah, I don't have to consult with you know, the person never took advantage of his position. We don't take advantage of other people. Sometimes we know that, oh, if I call if I invite this one, he's gonna pay for my lunch and he's gonna do this for me. And he will do that favors for me and she will do this for me and that we should never take advantage of other people never looking never looked after trying to take from others but we learned from Missoula sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about giving rights to

00:14:10 --> 00:14:35

other people and taking care of their needs and so forth. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the o'clock of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the ability to fulfill to fulfill the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala and to fulfill the rights of others around us.
