Salam Alikum ontological broker to welcome to another edition another segment of Oh you who believe where we cover an IRA the Quran word that begins with Yeah, you had let me know. So today the idea that I have chosen is I in number 200 of Sudha Addy Emraan and surah In this ayah 200 happens to also be the last ayat of surah Al Imran. Now before I get to this idea, I want to talk about the what exactly is Surah Ali Imran about because if we're finishing Surah Al Imran then we should know exactly what sort of early Imran is about. Many of the others I have explained that if you want to summarize the entire Surah into one word, it is a subset in Arabic about means stability,

00:00:58--> 00:01:43

consistency, maintaining firmness, so meaning that whatever situation we are going through, we have to maintain stability in our deen now Subhanallah first of all is that why is a pseudo call Sudha and Imran and what is the connection between the ending or the Surah Surah and Imran in the next Surah which is so a Nisa Surah Al Imran talks about two women in particular, it talks about the mother of Maria Maria who set up and it talks about Maria Mata his son in particular. The one thing that we learned from the story of Maria Mata Islam is her consistency and how she was firm in terms of her chastity and in terms of worshiping Allah subhanho wa taala. The story if you go back to the

00:01:43--> 00:02:28

story of Maria Mata has Saddam when Djibouti Dali Islam came to her. The Quran says well who were called in when you saw live in Morocco that she was praying in a she was praying Salaat in the metro area. So this in itself highlights how she was particularly about her Ibadah then the story also mentioned the mother of Maria Maria salaam, that when it comes to her consistency, and her firmness and her determination and helping Islam, and how did she do that? She said to Allah subhanho wa Taala that oh Allah give me a son so that I can dedicate my son to serving the the deen of Allah subhanho wa taala. And interestingly to note, when she made this dua, there was nothing there in

00:02:28--> 00:03:15

that area, that sacred land, which is the Holy Land and so forth, there was nothing there. So meaning that there is nothing there yet she is putting so much hope in Allah, she has so much Yaqeen and Allah subhanho wa Taala and she's making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala that I have a son so that I can give them for the service of Allah subhanho wa Taala this is what you call determination. This is what you call a Shabbat stability, and so forth. And so this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala This is why the surah was known as Surah, early Emraan because it talks about the family of Emraan. And interestingly to note, these two were who women hence the next surah is what Surah Nisa The

00:03:15--> 00:03:57

women. So this is a connection that we see in the Quran. Now when you study the entire SUTA Ali Imran, there are five key things that we learned from the surah. The very first thing that we learned in the Surah is to turn to Allah subhana wa taala. And I want to give you some examples. For example, we see a very common thing that we see in the sutra is the importance of making dua, you know Subhanallah when you study suitor Baqarah, the one thing that you see very consistently is the amount of times the name of Allah is mentioned, when you study the stoat when you study Surah Meriam you find the word Rahman multiple times in that Surah because that Surah really signifies how

00:03:57--> 00:04:43

merciful Allah subhanho wa Taala is, if you study Sudha Ali Imran, the one thing that you will find consistently throughout the entire surah is the word Rob. The word Rob, because the word Rob is the is a word that we use in our dua. So there are so many Dwyers are mentioned in the Surah. So this is the whole point of turning to Allah subhana wa Taala through our dua, we also see the same thing in the story of the mother. My mother used Saddam, that when she wanted a child she did what she may do Ah, so this is why it's very important. And not only that, but also turning to Allah means that when we are faced with adversities and calamities, then the best way to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

is to do Ah, so the very first thing that we learn in Sudan Imran is turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala The second thing that we learned is the importance of worship. And once again, the stories of Zakat iada His salaam the story of Medea Mata yesterday they

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

Talk about that how much they were obedient slaves to Allah subhanho wa Taala and how much they were consistent in their worship. And not only that part of this is that if we want to worship Allah subhanaw taala the correct way, the only way that can be done is following the footsteps of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this has been highlighted in an Enya in Sudha Ali Imran where Allah says well in continue to call in contempt to a boon Allah factor we are only you have people come Allahu Akbar, like from the Nova come wala Hua for Rahim. So this is the second thing that we learned, which is the concept of worship. The third thing that we learned primarily in the

00:05:40--> 00:06:29

sutra is the importance of Dawa. So Allah subhanho wa Taala in Surah Ali Ibrahim he talks about giving Dawa to Muslims Kuntum Hydra or mutton origin Linas was the command come on Madonia the owner either hide that we give Dawa to Muslims who give Dawa to non Muslims and we bring people to Allah subhanho wa Taala this surah also teaches us that when it comes to giving Dawa to Muslim to non Muslims, then instead of focusing on the differences, it is important to discuss and focus on the commonalities. This is why we find also in Surah Al Imran a beautiful idea where Allah says Kalia al Kitab de lo either Kelly Martin Sawa in bein Anna ouabain ACOM Allah Buddha Illallah that say O

00:06:29--> 00:07:16

Muhammad Salem, that told the people of the book that come to the common word that we believe only in when Allah subhanho wa Taala and not only that, but in the Surah we also learned that there was a group of 60 people, a delegation from Nigeria and they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to discuss about the status of Jesus the status of E Saudi Saddam. And this is why in this surah Allah in great detail talks about who Maria Malik is set up Ali Hassan was and who is out of his system was to and not only that, but where this all started from Ibrahim I Islam and Allah very clearly in the surah he says Makana Ibrahim Yahudi Yun wala and as Ronnie and while I can kind of

00:07:16--> 00:08:02

honey from Muslimah, the Ibrahimovic Islam, he was a Hanif he was a Muslim, and he was neither a Jew nor Christian. So this is something that we learned in the sutra, which is a third thing again Dawa. The fourth thing that we learned in the sutra is our priorities of life. What is our priority of life is to earn the pleasure of Allah subhana wa taala. Our priority of life is to understand that this dunya is not for eternity. And as Allah subhanho wa Taala he says at the end of this surah, that when a believer reflects upon what's around them, what do they say, Rob bene ma Holika Balclutha. O Allah, you have not created all this in vain. There is a purpose to every single thing

00:08:02--> 00:08:45

that you have created. And likewise, Allah Subhana Allah has created us and there's a purpose of our life to Allah subhanho wa Taala also taught us in the sutra that when we talk about the priorities of life, the priority is not our dunya in the beginning of the surah Allah says that what is the things that we chase in this dunya Xena li Nursey how Bucha how atomia Nisa II Well, Benina makan Tara, there's a very long ayah in the beginning of the surah where Allah subhana wa that talks about the what do we journey strive for when it comes to matters of this dunya Allah taught us that you can never compromise your deen what? You can never compromise your deen and chasing this dunya there

00:08:45--> 00:09:28

is nothing wrong and I want to make something very clear here. There is nothing wrong in attaining dunya. As long as our deen is not compromised, the minute our DNA is compromised, then that is where this dunya becomes harmful to us. So in the story of her the what do we learn that when the Muslims, they left their position, the place where the Palestinian he posted 50 people, and they left their positions to gain and to pick up the left behind what was left behind. They went after the materialism and because of that, they left the instructions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is why the Muslims they suffered tremendously in the Battle of heart. So Allah

00:09:28--> 00:10:00

subhanho wa Taala teaches us that there is something called priorities of life. And not only that, so beautifully Allah at the end of the sutra, he says that what is the ultimate priority? What is the ultimate success? He says from an Zorzi? Ha and now what will the halal Jana *a the first whoever is saved from the fire Jahannam and whoever is entered into Jannah that is for the first indeed they have attained true success. So this is the fourth thing that we learned in the Surah the fifth

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

thing that we learned in the Surah is the importance of brotherhood and a community. We have to be unified as a community. We cannot let external forces and we cannot let external matters come between us and rip apart our unity within the community. And not only that, but when it comes to noble affairs when it comes to you know good matters when it comes to tequila when it comes to helping each other, we should always be there for one another as Allah subhana wa Tada also says in Surah Al Qaeda, what are our no other ability what Toccoa wala tyre one who is me while you are the one that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says that when it comes to the matters of piety, support one another

00:10:43--> 00:11:28

when it comes to the matters of evil when it comes to matters of wrong, wrongdoing and negativity, do not support one another. So once again, these are the five things that are mentioned in this sutra. Once again, I want to go through all of them. So we remember them. The very first one was turning to Allah subhana wa Tada. Number two is the importance of worship. The third thing is Dawa. Fourth thing is understanding our priorities of life. And the fifth one is brotherhood in a community. Now, what did I say earlier that this surah if you want to summarize the entire Surah, it is about about stability, maintaining stability. So when we talk about each of these five things,

00:11:28--> 00:12:15

you have to maintain stability in all these five areas. Now the suit the idea that I want to cover today, because once again, this segment is about Yeah, you're Latina Ave, taking an idea of the Quran that begins with you let me know, the ayah that I want to share with you today is the last idea of Surah Ali Imran, as I said earlier, and beautifully Allah subhanho wa Taala takes all these five subjects and he fits them into the last idea of the surah this last idea of the surah as say the koto mentions in his Tafseer he said this idea comprises and summarizes the entire Surah What does Allah subhanho wa Taala say at the end of the surah? He says are you who are you who believe he

00:12:15--> 00:12:59

gives us three instructions? Is Biru sabe ru rabito and the fourth one, what does Allah Allah Allah come to your home? What does what is Sabi wabi sabi Yaga the Domino is middle first of all, Allah subhanaw taala is telling us to be patient. Why is Allah telling us to be patient because when it comes to matters of our deen when it comes to maintaining my spirituality, when it comes to my dean, my akhira there's a certain level of software I have to maintain. Waking up for budget is not easy, but that is where you have to have somewhere and wake up for Fudger because Allah wants me wants me to wake up for subtle Fajr especially when Fajr is really really early. Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:59--> 00:13:40

wants me to stay away from haram, no matter how much my heart is desiring that haram because Allah does not want us to do haram, I will stay away from the Haram and there is a there is a certain amount of patience that is required in order to do this. So the very first thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala says yeah, you know the Domino is below Be patient. The second thing he says saw be true, what is sabe Domina. This is a very this is a word that's also very similar to the word SB do they have the same root letters, but what this means is, this is another higher level of severity. So you have your standard server and saw below is another a notch higher, it is another level of suburb,

00:13:40--> 00:14:29

that when you are faced with calamities, in adversities from other places, from other places, to be patient at that time, is to is to is to be sabido is to have sabido so Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us that when it comes to your matters, maintaining your deen you be patient, when you are faced with calamities adversities from external from external areas, you also be patient and then Allah subhanho wa Taala says we're all beautiful. Now what does Robbie to mean, Robbie to we find in many a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this word a rebirth for example, it means to safeguard or to look after a territory and this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he

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

mentioned in a hadith the Kulu may eaten your thermo Allah Amelie levy Mata Morabito, Anfisa be the Allah for in the whole yummy Allahu Allahu Allah Yamanaka Yama were young men who fit nettle cover the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned and a hadith that is mentioned in most of the Ahmed and this is a Hadith narrated by footballer Urbana il Rhodiola Trine that he's Allahu alayhi wa sallam says every deed every

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

Every every dead person, excuse me, every dead person will have his record of deeds sealed. Meaning that when a person passes away, the book of deeds are closed, there is nothing that can be added anymore, except for a whoever dies while in the rebound in the Cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning that a person who is safe guarding the territory of Muslims, you call that person, a moral belt. And so in essence, this is called a rebirth. And the Prophet saw some says that his work will keep increasing until the Day of Resurrection, meaning that this person, if he dies, in protecting the territory of Muslims, and protecting other people, then for him, his book of deeds will not

00:15:44--> 00:16:27

close, he will keep on gaining Hassan Hassan until the day of judgment. And the Prophet saw some then says that he will be saved from the punishment of the grave or the trial the grave. Now interestingly, what's you know, what's beautiful about this hadith is and the question that someone may ask is that you know, what about a person who's reading Quran, and the Allah ma, they have explained that imagine, if you put a Quran inside a masjid, if a person reads from that you get the reward for person does not read from that you don't get the reward. But a person, on the other hand, who is a moron, but who safeguards the freedom of other Muslims, who looks after the safety of other

00:16:27--> 00:17:13

Muslims. The reason why Allah gives this person a greater reward than than other people, is because because that as long as these people have freedom, they're able to worship Allah subhanho wa taala, if this person was not there, and had he not put his life on the line for their freedom, then they will not be able to give sadaqa the people in the city will not be able to go to the masjid, they will not be able to do acts of good. So therefore, this person who is the Morabito, who exhibits or who really shows showcases in his life, the concept of a rebuilt this is why this person has such a great reward in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa taala. And you know what the one thing that Allah

00:17:13--> 00:18:04

subhanaw taala mentioned why he mentioned the word rob you threw in this idea is because Allah subhana wa Taala is not telling us go and protect the freedom Muslims, there is a metaphorical meaning here, given by the AMA, and they say that just like a murabahah stands and he is alert. He is cognizant and he is aware of his surroundings, he makes sure that there is no enemy that can come into the territory. Likewise, a Muslim who's always aware of making sure that nothing can defeat him and his Eman. Nothing can weaken his Iman, a person is always alert about this. This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about in this is so Allah says once again to us, the believers, that be

00:18:04--> 00:18:46

patient when it comes to your own spirituality, and maintaining your spirituality. Then he says that when it comes to external matters that are trying to weaken your iman to be patient at that time, and not only that, but when it comes to external matters, to be at the front line and to protect yourself and to safeguard yourself. This is what Allah subhanaw taala is telling us. And then he says what the law what law I like them to be one that be aware of Allah be cautious, be cautious of Allah subhanho wa Taala so that you can succeed, perhaps you can succeed if you can apply all these things in sha Allah. So this is why it's very important that we apply all these things in our life.

00:18:46--> 00:19:32

We are patient we have we have patients when it comes to other matters that come to us. And not only that, but we always are safeguarding our deen protecting our deen protecting our iman protecting the Iman of our children protecting the Eman of our family members. This is what Robbie to here means. And at the end Allah subhanaw taala is telling us to apply Toccoa because Toccoa is the key to the Quran. Toccoa is the key to understanding the Quran. Toccoa is the key to hidayah if I don't have taqwa, I cannot have hedaya Why? Because Allah subhana wa Taala he says that he colicky tabula rasa Buffy who doesn't live with the pain. That guidance is for those people who have Taqwa, ask ALLAH

00:19:32--> 00:19:59

SubhanA wa Taala that in times like these May He give a suburb May He give us the ability to be patient. May Allah subhana wa Taala give us ability that in times like this, while a SharePoint will come to us and He will try to squeeze us and He will try to you know, try to create doubts in our iman, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala that he makes us a moron bit. He makes us a person that's able to safeguard our deen and safeguard our iman and more than anything else.

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

As we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us the ability to learn from the stories of the Quran, the lessons of the Quran and apply them in our life Amira bla bla mean, does akmola hate Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
