Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi marine I'm about. So every Monday night we take, we take some ideas from the Quran

00:00:18--> 00:01:02

and especially the ones that begin with Yeah, you have Latina Manu, and we try to expand upon them and we try to take lessons from them today. Last week we covered Of course, some if so Bacara and we were able to conclude for the Bacara. So of course the next sutra, which is sort of Ali Imran, we begin with Sudan Imran insha Allah and the very first Yeah, you are the nominee that appears in surah. Ali Imran comes in at number 100, an item A 101 100 A one and 102. Within these three if there are two verses that begin with you will Adina Avenue. So inshallah today will cover both. So I want to give you a pretty much background exactly what is going on here and Sudha Ali Imran first of

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

all is that so that it Imran

00:01:05--> 00:01:48

primarily covers some stories regarding the Battle of weather. It also covers a group of people, Christians who came from neuron to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they were in. You know, some books of history mentioned that this was a debate. Some say that this was simply a dialogue. But it was regarding Christianity and Islam. And this is between Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam and the Christian that came from an Iran now at the end that this view, or these two is about to cover today. This isn't the beginning of the fourth judges. So if you go to the end of the third jurors, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about Ibrahim alayhi salam, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala

00:01:48--> 00:02:32

emphasizes that the Christian say that Ibrahim Ali Islam was a NESARA the Jews believed that he was a Yahoodi and Allah subhanho wa Taala saying Makana Ibrahim whoo yah hoo Dee Yun wala Anna Sardinian Ibrahim alayhi salam, he was neither a yahoodi he was neither a Nasrani he was neither a Jew or a Christian, what I can kind of honey fun Muslimah he was first of all dedicated to the Oneness of Allah and he was a dedicated Muslim. Now after this Allah subhanho wa Taala talks to her more about the some of the flaws of Bani Israel even and so forth. And we come into the fourth Jers. And this is where the two is that we come across. For by the way, one thing I do want to mention about Sudha

00:02:32--> 00:03:14

and Imran is that if you study Allah of the books of the sea, and if you want to summarize entire Surah Al Imran, into one word. In a nutshell, as I say, it comes down to one word in Arabic is called about a Sabbath means stability, or it means to maintain a firm ground. And Sudha Ali Imran talks about maintaining your stability, stability, and many different ways. It talks about maintaining your stability from within, it talks about maintaining your stability as a community because the next idea that comes up is what was the movie Hubbard and now he's Jimmy,

00:03:15--> 00:03:28

hold on to the rope of Allah subhanho wa Taala and do not disperse or do not become divided. So stability within and stability individually. It also highlights stability, when it comes to

00:03:30--> 00:04:14

things that will that can deviate us from stability and things that will keep us maintain upon stability. So ALLAH SubhanA wa that talks about Bonita saw eel and he says that how they deviated other people. Allah says make sure you don't do that. You don't do that in your community. Now we come to these ayat and Allah subhanho wa Taala in the fourth Jers he talks about Bonita saw in and they're the laws of food. And he also talks about Makkah and as Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in a word of a tin will the alumnus levy Baca, there is the very first place that was created or the very first place that was institutionalized for the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala was makeup but

00:04:14--> 00:04:56

after that the reason why Allah mentioned this is because bunnies saw he always had issues especially if you remember we talked about this into the baccarat after the changing of the Qibla This is one of the key contentious issues between the Muslims and the Jews. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala After addressing all their questions, Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that go to these people and try to talk to them. Try to make sense with them. Try to do not argue with them, but try to help them understand that when you understand the truth, and they do understand the truth, and amongst bunnies saw eat or amongst the Jews in Medina, there were

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

some there were majority that people they understood the truth

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

But some believed is in majority did not believe you have people like Abdullah bin Salam or Yalta on that he understood that this is the hack. So he came into Islam. He came into Islam and he was a devout Muslim and develops a hobby for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So here Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in is number 98. This is to is before Yeah, you need to know Allah says coil. Yeah, say O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Yeah, Al Kitab all people of the book, Lima tuck Furuno Biya Tila, why are you disbelieving in the eyes of Allah? Why are you rejecting the Ayat of Allah? Will Allah Who shall he do? Not Allah.

00:05:43--> 00:06:25

Allah is a witness over what you're doing. When say, O Muhammad Salah mija Allah Kitab O People of the Book Limitus who do not answer be the Allah Mahna Mahna turbo Hoonah Ha, ha. What anthem shahada, Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling the prophet that told these people that Why are you stopping people from the Path of Allah, and especially those who believed in Allah. Now the one thing that we learn is, in the seed of the Prophet SAW Selim, we learned that there were people who converted to Islam, there were around us wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam, their Iman was strong. But there were a lot of people, despite the fact that also some is there. There were despite that there

00:06:25--> 00:07:06

were still many people who were struggling with their faith, they were struggling with their faith did not have any idea that is this the truth? Or is this the truth, because the Jews will come to them. And they will make a very compelling argument they will make and just like today, just like today, we have people who are attacking Islam. These are people who are paid at times, these are people who go out and they this is their sole mission. And what they have done is they have created doubts within the minds of our youth. They have created doubts regarding Islam, in the minds of those people, especially who are weak in their faith. And just to give you an idea, so you

00:07:06--> 00:07:48

understand that the ayat of the Quran are relevant during our times to, you know, when I mean, when 911 took place, or not only that, but even when there's a situation where there is a Muslim, and they're evil actions, they you know, they get attention in the news. What happens is that Muslims all over the world, they come under sudden, this sudden pressure, okay? From Islamophobia, because of Islamophobia. And they're always scared of going out and so forth. Now, you have people in the community who are strong in their faith, they're absolutely strong in their faith, they will go out, they will stick to their Deen, they have no problem. But at the same time, while there are strong

00:07:48--> 00:08:27

Muslims, there are Muslims who are weak in their faith, too. And there are Muslims who are willing to sell their Deen there are Muslims who are willing to compromise, you know, I will say, compromise the core principles of their Deen so that they are not they don't come under attack, and they can feel or they can give everyone the impression that we are with you. So this is this is the reality and this was the reality in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when these people were who were on the fence, who had weak Eman, the Jews will come to them and say, Why are you believing in this message? Why are you believing in this? This is absolutely something that is

00:08:27--> 00:09:08

not based on anything. And look at this man, he's making up things. And how can you say that he believes in Allah or he receives what he from Allah. And so this is how they will manipulate the minds of people. Not only that, but they will also go and try to create discord amongst the Muslims. How that one time it is mentioned that there were two people who are this hobby of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They were from Osen. Huzzah, Raj. Now if you stay the secret of how some you learn one thing, that before the person came to Medina, these two tribes also Hassan, they were not Jewish tribes. They were idol worshipping tribes. You had the three Jewish tribes in Medina

00:09:08--> 00:09:53

calleva binuclear, Naka and Burnaby. And what happened was the ocean hundreds were always against each other. They're always against each other. After the saucer came into Medina, there were some who converted to Islam and the possum he broke down those barriers. He says you are needed from us and huzzah. Raj? Yes, you can identify yourself that you originally come from Oh 700. But now you are the unsolved you are the unsolved. Now there was once a Jewish man who sent a person he saw a two people Sahabi the problems of salaam to Saudi people. And he said that go and remind them go and remind them of their previous conflicts, remind them of their wars, and their battles they used to

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

have against each other. And so this young this man this is mentioned in German thought and this man he went

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

And he sat down with them. And he began to remind them he says that Do you remember your house and user hazards? Remember you both used to fight and how you know you did not make sense or use his case not make sense and so forth. And these two people, these two people, I mean, they were, of course, I mean, you know, here you have a person who was instigating who was trying to create fitna and so what eventually happened was that they began to remember this, and they began to say things to each other. And when this news came from Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam he was, he was very, very upset. He was very upset about this, because this is one thing that the Prophet sallallahu

00:10:38--> 00:11:23

alayhi wa sallam was trying to eliminate this whole thing about Mohammed and Assad. And I mean, and you know, you know, there's nothing wrong in identifying yourself, but then to, you know, to become a contentious issue in the community. The problem was always trying to get rid of that, even if you remember the story of munafo and understood the story of Surah Al munafo on you had a person like Zane rhodiola, and he hears here, there's, there's, this was an incident that took place also in the seat of the province, I'll send them one of the slaves of Oman, even a kebab. He had struck an unsightly person, and he began to bleed and the unsalted compat danza the person went and he called

00:11:23--> 00:12:06

his Saudi companions. And that and the slave of only makapag went and he began to call all the visible hygiene. And they began to about to go and not only that, but Abdullah I mean, it obey, okay, but obey he came, and who was the leader of the mill Africa, and he came, and he instigated the situation. And he says, To the unsalted the reason why now, the Maharjan have so much audacity to hit you is because you brought them into your homes, you took care of them. And now they are so confident that now they're coming after you he never helped the situation. And when this was a lot of audio, some he found out about this, he was really upset. There was a child that went to the

00:12:06--> 00:12:45

province of Salem, and he complained about this. And and this man, obey he came in he says, no, no, I never said anything like this. This child is lying. Are you going to take his word? Are you gonna take my word, and the province of Salem he was I mean, he was an article of faith. He was conflicted for a moment. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down the idea that this man is a liar and the child is saying the truth. So if there were times when people would try to create this kind of discord amongst the Muslims, and this is when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells them that you are doing this while I'm within you. Like this is unbelievable. And this is why in one of the

00:12:45--> 00:13:29

following is Allah subhanho wa Taala says, K for tech Furuno Billa? How can you reject Allah subhanaw taala and His Ayat, gave it in front of Allah, He want him to clear to Allah, He will feed them rasuluh the Ayat of Allah are coming upon you, and there's a messenger within you, and yet you aren't doing this. So this is what exactly what was hula so long it was salam here, remind them. Now, one of the things another thing that we learned from these ayat is that because of the actions of money saw in and how they will try to cause corruption in the community, and so forth. Because of this, many people will begin to leave Islam. And this happens even today, too. If you actually go

00:13:29--> 00:14:12

and you there's a study that was done that why do most Muslims, they leave their Deen, why did they leave their Deen? And for the most part, it's not yes, you know, theological discussions, theological confusion is there. But if you find if you go back and you look, why are most Muslims leaving practicing their own day and one of the key things that we find is that people who could claim to be religious and they do a religious things, when they lie, and they cheat and they steal and they do these kinds of things, that this is what puts off many people from coming close to their Deen, how many people within the deen within Islam, they don't want to follow Islam anymore because

00:14:12--> 00:14:51

of certain people and certain actions that those people have done. A lot of times it is us and what we do that we drive other people away from Allah subhanho wa taala. There are people who dropped we drive them away from the masjid, we drive them away from the Muslim community and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being told to remind these people that why do you do this? And not only that, but then this question needs to be put also to these people too. If I am a person, that through my actions and through what I say, I'm driving people away from Allah subhanho wa taala. That was the point of my then my DNA is all about other people. I mean, one is that we sometimes

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

become so sensitive, and we're so over careful when it comes to normal cells, making sure that our club is good with normal cells.

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

making sure that we're always doing things the right way when it comes to non Muslims, but when it comes to our own Muslim community, there are so many people who don't want to practice their Deen because they have seen such and such person doing such and such wrong and so this is the thing that we have to be very careful about now Allah subhanaw taala and the next is says this begins with yeah you know the the AMA know, Allah says yeah you hola the AMA No, into 304 eapen mina Lavina Auteuil keytab you do combat II mannequin Catherine? In simple terms, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada saying, Oh, you people who believe if you follow their footsteps. Okay, the hood and then Asara everything has been

00:15:40--> 00:16:17

documented the Quran, you know what the longer they did, if you still go after them and you still follow their footsteps, then you are going to land with them and you're going to be with them and eventually you will give up your deen also and once again, this is after this idea was mentioned after everything has been made clear when it comes to all the all the objections that have come from the Christians and the Jews. After answering all that this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala is mentioning. Now something else that mentioned that is mentioned by even Satan Coto is something interesting, he says, when Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions this verse, Allah in essence is telling

00:16:17--> 00:17:04

this ummah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you are the leaders of this ummah, okay. I mean, what is this Oma? But this OMA is the leader for the entire world. We as a Muslim Ummah, the OMA of us wa salam, we need to set an example for the entire world. Why your Subhanallah go back into Islamic history. Go back into the Samick history. When Muslim when Muslim armies would have conquered lands, the non Muslims of that land. When Islam and Muslims will be coming. They were happy, they will be rejoicing. Why? Because they knew that Islam brings in a unique system that cover every that covers every aspect of life. Islam is a blessing. Islam is a Rama for the entire

00:17:04--> 00:17:45

world in all its problems and all of its problems. Now if we are the leaders of the entire world, and we are supposed to set the example properly, the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying over here, that the best way you do that is through the Quran and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how does it make sense? If a person says I'm gonna go into the world, or Allah is setting us as leaders for the entire world, and he does not give us the recipe of success? It it cannot happen. So Allah sent us as leaders, he gave us the Quran, he gave us a sunnah he gave us a recipe of success. And you say now you have to make an impact in the entire world that

00:17:45--> 00:18:30

Allah subhanaw taala says, key for that food okay for that frona And how can you disbelieve Allah Saba disbelieve in Allah How can you reject Allah subhanho wa Taala well antem to La come to law, Wolfie come rasuluh you are those that you see the quran being revealed? I mean, you know, if you see the quran being revealed, think about it, there should be no doubt, there should be no trace of any kind of ambiguity, no trace of any ambiguity even if a person had any doubt in us who so allow yourself if you saw the word he coming down, alas, there is no doubt after that anymore. And Allah subhanaw taala is telling them you have the iron coming upon us Law Center. You have Rasul Allah

00:18:30--> 00:19:10

Himself within you, and yet you are rejecting the message. This is this is this is, I mean, how can this happen? Allah subhanho wa Taala then says, well, mainly out of sin Billahi whoever holds on, hold on does not mean just holding on, hold on firmly. Yatta Cymbala Fukada hoodia illustrata. Mr. Tim, just imagine Allah subhanaw taala is giving us the example of a rope. Okay, you hold on to something, right? Yes or no? Now imagine if you're holding on to something. And I'm just giving you something, just an example. So you you and just, you know, help us understand. Imagine that you are in a big storm. Strong winds are going by and you're holding on to a pole. Okay, you're holding on

00:19:10--> 00:19:51

to a pole. If you just hold on to the pull like this. Are you going to fly away? Yes, you will. Okay. But if you put your arm around and you hold on to that, with firmness, will you fly away, there's still a chance, but for the most part, you will not fly away. This world in itself and everything that happens in this world. It's a storm that we're going through. Sometimes it's a storm of gopher, sometimes we come across different things in life. Allah is saying in all aspects of life, if you hold on to Allah subhanho wa Taala with a firm grip, *a hoodia, illustrata Mustafi, you will be guided to the right to the right path, you will be guided to the right path, you will be

00:19:51--> 00:20:00

saved and you will remain on the right path. Then Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, you Hallelujah, Amen. Oh, this is a second one. This is number 102. Allah says you

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

Yeah, you're Latina, Allaha, haka, Ducati. Whatever the Moto Illa Juan Simone, Allah says oh you people who believe now listens very carefully. Allah says, Fear Allah, the way he should be feared.

00:20:15--> 00:20:57

Fear Allah the way he should be feared. Haka Ducati, Ala Moana and do not die except for you are in the state of, of Islam and you are in the state of being a Muslim. Now here, this is Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us that if you want to maintain stability within yourself, within your community, there's two things are required. Number one is Taqwa. And the second one is unity. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that in these few ayat, okay overall, Allah has mentioned that in these few ayat in this ayah Allah subhanaw taala saying that, if you and the reason why Allah always men's fear Allah, I need to I want everyone to understand what does it mean to fear Allah subhanho wa

00:20:57--> 00:21:41

Taala it means that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has brought down rules and laws upon us. Now if I have fear of Allah subhanho wa taala, I'm going to make sure that everything is done, according to the book, and I have no fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala I have no fear of accountability, I will do whatever I want. So Allah subhanho wa Taala saying, I have given you the mantle of leadership, not only that, but you have to be a proper community too. And you have to stick together. And when you stick together, and when you are a community, either you're going to maintain community rights in the way that you want to or the way Allah subhanaw taala has told us to just think about this.

00:21:41--> 00:22:18

Imagine like, for example, we all know that when it comes to our taxes, when it comes to our taxes, we have to give Uncle Sam every year, okay. And we understand that when it comes to our taxes, we have to be very clear, we have to be very straightforward. Now when we know that I have to report when I know that these things are taking place, and how I'm going to have to you know, give an account of everything I have made my businesses and so forth, we make sure that we stick to the book. Why? Because there's accountability at the end of the day. And I know that even if there are people who cheat the system, one day comes, they always get caught. One day comes, they always get

00:22:18--> 00:22:52

caught. If I know that there's someone overlooking me, I will always remain on the right path. Even when we're children. As long as the parents are watching over us. We were on the right path, we will always do the right thing. And the minute there's no supervision, then you don't you don't you do whatever you want to do. This is what Allah subhanaw is telling us. If you fear Allah subhana wa Taala the concept of fear is that then we know that there is accountability. If I know there's accountability, that Allah has given us certain things, we will follow accordingly. But if I know that there is no accountability, I don't have to answer to anyone. I will do whatever I want to do.

00:22:52--> 00:23:28

If I'm a leader and I will do whatever I want to do. I don't care about any people's I don't care about whether I'm doing right or wrong according to Quran and Sunnah. It doesn't matter to me that Allah subhanaw taala is telling us okay, go do whatever you want to do. But when you are part of a community, you have to keep these things in mind. You cannot maintain unity in the community, if there is no fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala why? Because if there are leaders of a community, and they do not maintain their responsibilities, according to the Quran and the Sunnah than their overall there's going to be corruption in society. Overall, there is going to be fitna and there'll

00:23:28--> 00:24:06

be a facade in the community. But as long as Taqwa is maintained, then that is the most important thing because at the end of day, if people are going to hold anyone accountable, even in the time of almond ricotta, in a time of the holiday rush, you don't, people came and they would hold themselves accountable, based on Taqwa based on what is mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah the province of Salem, and that is where the Sahaba they will stop if they were doing something wrong, and they came across the Quran and the Sunnah immediately will stop right away, because they knew that we can do whatever we want to do, or we will we will judge as we wish. But when we get to the Quran and the

00:24:06--> 00:24:43

Sunnah, that is where we stopped that is where we cease to exist, that from that point, it is not about us, it's about Allah's Prophet. So if the coin is maintained, then everything will be fine. And Allah subhanho wa Taala then says, What are the Mutanda illa Anta Mazoon and do not die, except for you are in the state of a Muslim. So these are two things that are mentioned once again is this is talking about the importance of sticking to our deen making sure that we don't follow the footsteps, making sure that we are not deterring someone from Deen making sure that because of our actions, because of our actions, we're not pushing someone away from our deen and finally, is if we

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

want to maintain stability and maintain the unity of their community. The very first thing that we need to do is we need to maintain Taqwa. And when I say community, not only this community, even within our families to even within our families, there are families that you know cases I hear

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

over and over again, that there is no taco. Now if there is no taco, and like let's just say if one person and family says to everyone do this, do this, do this, do this. And the person has no taco himself. How are people are going to follow that kind of person, right? I mean, if you don't have if you don't have a moral compass, that how are you going to be followed? So this is why Taqwa is very important for especially for people who have to follow someone. And now on the other for the overall system, taqwa is very, very important. Ask Allah subhana wa to give all of us ability to atom has been sent or heard May Allah Subhana Allah keep us united. May Allah Subhana Allah give us ability

00:25:35--> 00:25:46

to do that which is right and stay away from that which is wrong. immunoblotted means exactly love it. So Harnick Allahu Huntik Nash to Allah either illa Anta selfie with exacting la hate someone in Cobra cattle
