So the next Surah as we have been going from every single Surah, we went to sort of Bukhara, sort of Ali Imran, that sort of Nyssa sort of either the next surah in order is sort of an ion. So the an imam compared to all the surah starting with so the Bacara it is a very first mucky Surah that we find in the Quran. I'm not saying that this is the very first monkey so to be revealed, there's the very first monkey sutra that we find when reading the Quran. And just like the beginning, the very first Surah that we find Alhamdulillah will be the LME, the surah also begins the same way with Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Hilary Hala pasa my word you will older Watch, I'll go to Matthew When

00:00:39 --> 00:01:25

no, this is an a surah that from beginning to end it talks about the Oneness of Allah subhanho wa taala. It talks about the towhead of Allah subhanho wa taala. And we find in the Quran that when ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala wants to introduce himself when Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to convey the message about who he is, as a Lord as our our ILA and our as our Rob. He often uses the word Hua, who will lead the Holocaust in our world, who will call Hebrew folk or anybody we find this word who were, who often find in the Quran and in this sutra, in particular, Allah subhanho wa Taala talking about himself, Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the word Hua 42 times in this sutra 42 times in this

00:01:25 --> 00:02:09

sutra, so often we find number one is Allah subhanho wa Taala will talk about himself he will refer to himself and he will begin the idea with Hua and sometimes Allah subhanho wa taala. He sends the message across to us through Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by using the word pull. We find this often throughout very various places in the Quran. And in the same suit on and subtle and I'm in order for us unite to understand the message of Allah subhanho wa taala. In order to us in order for us to understand that we weren't behind worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala and dedicating ourselves to Allah subhanho wa taala. And the punishments and the consequences of not following the

00:02:09 --> 00:02:53

righteous path, the consequences of turning our back to Allah subhana who were to Allah, Allah subhana wa Taala tells us wa salam, pul and so forth. And in this surah once again, we also find that this word Allah has been mentioned 38 times in the Quran, you in this in this sutra, so you can imagine this sutra begins at the the quarter mark of the seven jewels and it goes to the halfway mark of the eighth jewels, and you're talking about a juice and one quarter but in this juice in one quarter 42 times Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the word Hua and 38 times Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the word oil, yah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So you just imagine what kind of a surah

00:02:53 --> 00:03:36

This is the Allah subhanho wa Taala is really trying to get a really strong message message across to us and that is that we need to recognize who Allah subhanho wa Taala is and that is why we also find in the same Surah there are two important things I want to share with you from the sutra. The one is the story of Ibrahim alayhis salaam. And if you study the entire Quran many times we're not able to really capture the story of Ibrahim alayhi salam, but there is a moment in the Sudan where Allah subhanho wa Taala says philam JANA Allah He later Rocco kebab when the night for fell MENA when the night came and occurred. Raja Colca he saw the stars and he says hi there Robbie. That this

00:03:36 --> 00:04:23

is my Rob fella. fella called Allah or Herbalife even when the sunset when the sunset I mean sorry when the stars they said I mean the next morning he woke up he did not see the stars anymore. He says like Hubble ATHLEAN I do not like something that sets for them. For a model camera. Basilan color has Robbie that when the next day he saw the moon he says that this is my Rob fella, fella that when that said also he says the Ilam Yeah howdini.be Hakuna Namita call me volley. Volyn if Allah does not guide me then I will be amongst those who are misguided. And then he says phala Mara shumsa Zilla when he saw the sun, he says hi there Rob be harder Akbar that this this is my Rob and

00:04:23 --> 00:04:59

has the advert. This is such great you look at the sun. It is such more magnificent compared to the moon and the stars. For the for that call a home anybody only matters Shikun when that this set also the son he said to his phone in knee buddy on I am free. I am absolved from whatever you come and share it with. Now this basically these are yet are an iron a set of iron the money Subhanallah many scholars of theology have had a lot of discussion upon this. You have the opinion of the muta. Kalamoon those who believed in Al Kalam, you had the opinion of far

00:05:00 --> 00:05:43

Rudy and Rosie Rahmatullah Allah who said that this is not the journey of Ibrahim alayhis salam to search God, because many times you find people saying that this was Ibrahim's journey, to search for God, to look for God and to find God to find Allah subhanho wa Taala and fuck Rudy Razia Rahmatullah LA, according to his opinion, he says, No, this is not his journey to find God, rather, he was trying to make a point to his people, that something that is just me, or something that has a body, something that has space, that something that it moves into, it needs space, and it moves, that is something that is not considered as the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala these are accidental

00:05:43 --> 00:06:21

properties. It's a long theological discussion, but then you have imitate Miramont Allah, Allah, he has his own opinion about this ayat, and he said, that these ayat are not about Ibrahim his journey and seeking Allah subhanho wa taala. But rather, Ibrahim, Assam is trying to make a strong point. He's trying to send this message across to his people, that if you think that these things are so big, and they are worthy of your worship, but look at these things, they settle and they're not always there, how can you worship something that is there one day and then or one part of the day, and then it sets? This is not something that you know, you have to understand that you cannot

00:06:21 --> 00:07:05

worship something of this type. So this is something that I want to share that many people believe that this is Ibrahim's journey to Allah subhanho wa taala. And that's not simply the truth. However, what your honor my haven't yet taken from these ayat is that it is important because there is a known fact that Ibrahim Islam, he had this observation when he was a child, Ibrahim, are you someone had this observation when he was a child, Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam actually did believe and other other and any other entity that he would have not been given this title as Hanif the word Hanif means actually someone who connects with their inner, innate human nature who connects with fitrah. And

00:07:05 --> 00:07:42

that fitrah is as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Could Lumo Luthien EULA FITARA every single person is born on the fitrah. And what is that fitrah the fitrah is law either in Allah so therefore Ibrahim it is some he already understood that there is a rock behind all this, there is a ROB who's controlling this sun, and who's controlling the stars and who's also controlling the moon. And that is what he believed in. And that's why he said to his people, I nobody on I am free from whatever you're committing Shockwave, you're telling me to worship these things besides Allah subhanho wa taala. I'm free from this. But what's your Alma have also said is the fact that Ibrahim

00:07:42 --> 00:08:20

out of yourself as a child is having this observation. It is very important for us that we also teach our children about the hate. We teach our children about who Allah subhanho wa Taala is I asked you even as adults, because the reality is, the more you talk about something, the more you're going to love something we keep on talking about dunya you go to your friends, you're talking about dunya we go to a Dawa, we go to like some party and so forth. There we're talking about dunya I invested this idea, this idea that we're always talking about money, and hence the love of money and this dunya comes into our heart. When is the last time think about it? What is the last time we have

00:08:20 --> 00:09:02

ever sat down and reflected on Allah subhanaw taala what is the last time we looked at everything around us? And we said Subhan Allah, what is the last time we actually reflected on his creation? The Sahaba they say and this is found in the body, the very first Kitab Okay, the very first kita but don't worry, it is mentioned there the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu they will often say engineers will not Minister it and this is a very common phrase of the Sahaba or the Allah. Let's sit down and let's revive our iman. They will say this, what does that meant? What does that mean? It meant that let's sit down let's talk about Allah subhanho wa Taala and let's revive our iman the when we listen

00:09:02 --> 00:09:41

to Allah subhanho wa Taala when we listen about Allah subhanho wa Taala when we reflect on the Quran, when we reflect on the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no way that we will not bring in our hearts the love of Allah subhana wa Taala if a child at that age is reflecting upon this, how often do we actually sit down with our children and we reflect on everything around them today they think that form that that Baba is the one who's who's the one who's bringing all the food on the table Baba is doing this Baba is doing that Mama's doing this mama is doing that. But we ask our own children who is the one who provide this roof over your head? And you say that this is Allah

00:09:41 --> 00:09:59

subhanaw taala Yes, we are the means as father as Mother we are the means. But the one who is the ultimate provider, the one who's the ultimate Sustainer the one who is always taking care of us is Allah subhanahu wa to Allah and that is why we also find when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is sitting with Abraham

00:10:00 --> 00:10:44

because he's a child, and he refers to him as a child, and he says, yeah, he refers to as a child, like we say minute but Cha you know, like my son. And he says inequality muka limit I'll teach you a few things, few fundamental concepts that you have to keep in mind for the rest of your life. He says it for the La Jolla Fosca. Protect Allah and Allah will protect you mean protected commands of Allah and Allah will protect you. And then he says way that's a ultrafast. When you want something you ask Allah so you ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala we teach our children to ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to get into the nature of asking Allah subhanho wa Taala what he does the first time biller when you

00:10:44 --> 00:10:51

want seek when you want to seek help you ask ALLAH SubhanA what to Allah, and he says what I love, no unknown meta

00:10:52 --> 00:11:29

info can be shaken. Let me on fire, okay, Allah be shaken by the Ketubah hula hula. He taught him the core fundamental of faith, that if everyone got together, and he tried to harm one person, but Allah does not want that person to be harmed, it comes down to the decision of Allah subhanho wa taala. And if everyone tried to get together, and he tried to benefit one person, and Allah does not want that person to be benefited, that person will not be benefited. This is what they were taught as they were children. Today we are not teaching these kinds of kit we're not teaching our children these fundamental things, but putting them into our in front of a YouTube video is not sufficient.

00:11:29 --> 00:12:09

We have to talk to our children and remind them who Allah subhana wa Taala is think about this today's Subhanallah our kids are going up with the simple concept that I need to please everyone else. I need to please everyone else besides Allah subhanho wa Taala I need to please a society. Why do you think our children are compromising today in their Deen? They're compromising they're in their Deen because they don't have confidence in their Deen. They feel like they need to please everyone think about Subhanallah how amazing is that teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the first thing that he taught him to Abbas was what take care of Allah's commands. The very

00:12:09 --> 00:12:47

first thing that is the most important to you for the rest of your life is to take care of the commands of Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is something that the very first the very first reflection from the surah the second reflection quickly I want to take from this is Allah subhanho wa Taala says something very interesting. And this is something that many times we fall into the same trap. We are surrounded by dunya and we look at other people who have dunya and we admire people who have dunya and we try to emulate people who have dunya why? Because we're always looking for happiness. And Allah subhanaw taala says something very interesting, he says in the same suit

00:12:47 --> 00:13:25

all fella man Asuma Dookie Ruby fatahna Allah him Abu Abu Konishi. When people forget about Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, I opened the doors of everything upon them. Anything they put their hand in, is going to bring is going to bring them dividends. Anything that they associate themselves with, is going to bring them immense amount of benefit. We open the door of everything Allah says fatahna Allah him Abba quindi che you know the word cliche in Arabic means every single thing that they are associated with. But then Allah says hut, either fairy who Bhima Oh to a hadith now whom back

00:13:26 --> 00:14:09

then when they become completely obsessed with what they have, and they become oblivious of Allah subhanho wa Taala 100 Now whom bhakta then we grabbed them and we hope we we captured them very suddenly. A hug now whom Macduff either hopefully soon Allah subhanaw taala is telling us in this ayah it is very important for us that we don't look at someone who has been given so much in this dunya and we think that this is the good this is a sign that Allah subhanaw taala ESPYS with a melon make this very clear. I'm not saying that if you have been given Allah by Allah subhanho wa Taala This is a sign of Allah's displeasure. I'm not saying that. Allah is saying find a man. So there are

00:14:09 --> 00:14:47

people that they believe in Allah, they worship Allah, they are dedicated to Allah, they are absolutely dedicated to Allah. And Allah blesses them immensely, And subhanAllah your Alma they write, the one is the Hikmah, that there are some people who dedicate themselves to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah gives them so much riches of this dunya and there are other people who also worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and they were even as dedicated as these people, but Allah does not give them and Allah subhana it is mentioned by the Allah ma that perhaps Allah knows within his own infinite wisdom, that this first person, no matter how much Allah is going to give him he will not

00:14:48 --> 00:14:59

ever transgress and that's why you'll find these kinds of people they give and they give and they give so much to the pie and so forth. On the other hand, Allah Subhan does not give them but then on the other hand, there are some people who transgress

00:15:00 --> 00:15:38

And we look at these kinds of people that they don't praise a lot. They commit haram. And yet they have given me they've been given so much. And that is what you shake on comes to and says, Look, you worship Allah, and this person does not worship Allah and yet Allah has given them so much. But this is not a guarantee of Allah's pleasure, if success in this dunya if the riches of this dunya was a sign of Allah's happiness, how do you explain the struggles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam? How do you possibly explain the struggles of the Prophet SAW Allah while he was setting up? That is why it is our responsibility, that we always take a good account of ourselves. And we

00:15:38 --> 00:16:13

don't look at other people who has what and who they who, what they don't have, and so forth. If a person transgresses and Allah gives them, that's between them and Allah subhanho wa taala. That's not a sign that's not a reason for us to say that, you know what, I need to stop whatever I'm doing. Let me come in Haram like this person, because there are a lot of people, even a lot of our children who have the same kind of concept. They have the same kind of mindset. So that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us in the Quran, that duniya the dunya is not a sign of Allah's pleasure. The sign of Allah's pleasure is that we're able to read the Quran, that's a sign of Allah's pleasure. The

00:16:13 --> 00:16:46

fact that we're able to pray Salah that's a sign of Allah's pleasure, the fact that we come closer to Allah, that's a sign of Allah's pleasure. If someone loves you, they will let you come closer to him. That's the reality of life. If someone does not like someone, they push someone away. The fact that Allah gives us no fee to do so much to come closer to him. That's a sign that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves us. So that is why these are few things that we keep in mind from the surah. We talked about the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam we talked about this important idea. So we clarify this concept and once against sort of an overall what the surah is all about. I ask Allah subhanho wa

00:16:46 --> 00:17:00

Taala to grant us His love We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to consider to consistently remain connected with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada for that is the most important relationship that we all need in our life. What does that come Allah Hi. Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
