So continuing with our series,

00:00:02 --> 00:00:03

the next surah,

00:00:04 --> 00:00:05

is Surah Hud.

00:00:06 --> 00:00:06

And,

00:00:08 --> 00:00:10

interestingly, Surah Yunus,

00:00:10 --> 00:00:12

Surah Hud, and Surah Yusuf are 3 Surahs

00:00:13 --> 00:00:14

that come one after another.

00:00:15 --> 00:00:16

And this is the only place in the

00:00:16 --> 00:00:18

Quran where you will find 3 surahs

00:00:19 --> 00:00:21

with the names of the Ambiya alayhiimus sata

00:00:21 --> 00:00:23

wasalam. Otherwise, anywhere in the Quran, you will

00:00:23 --> 00:00:25

not find 3 surahs

00:00:26 --> 00:00:28

with 3 different names of the of prophets

00:00:28 --> 00:00:30

coming one after another. This is the only

00:00:30 --> 00:00:32

place in the Quran you will find this.

00:00:32 --> 00:00:35

We also learn from many ulama and many

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

books of tafasir

00:00:36 --> 00:00:38

that all these 3 surahs were revealed one

00:00:38 --> 00:00:39

after another

00:00:40 --> 00:00:42

because they happened and they were revealed in

00:00:42 --> 00:00:44

Makkah, and many ulama they say that they

00:00:44 --> 00:00:47

were revealed after the death of Khadija

00:00:49 --> 00:00:50

and the uncle of the prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:00:50 --> 00:00:53

wa sallam Abu Talib. Because what happened at

00:00:53 --> 00:00:55

that time was that even though the prophet

00:00:55 --> 00:00:57

alaihi wa sallam went to Ta'if, and he

00:00:57 --> 00:00:58

was rejected

00:00:59 --> 00:01:00

from Ta'if, and he came back to Makkah.

00:01:01 --> 00:01:03

It was almost as if, though he was

00:01:03 --> 00:01:05

living under diplomat diplomatic

00:01:06 --> 00:01:09

immunity, and he was living safely in Makkah,

00:01:09 --> 00:01:12

but there was still a situation where now

00:01:12 --> 00:01:14

the Quraysh, they felt that all the defense

00:01:14 --> 00:01:15

mechanisms

00:01:16 --> 00:01:18

that the prophet he had, which was his

00:01:18 --> 00:01:21

wife, which was his uncle. Now they are

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

now gone. Now we have a free shot

00:01:24 --> 00:01:26

at Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:01:26 --> 00:01:28

And when a person lives in a certain

00:01:28 --> 00:01:29

kind of fear,

00:01:29 --> 00:01:31

then they need to be consoled. This is

00:01:31 --> 00:01:32

what they this is what they need to

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

receive. And this is exactly

00:01:34 --> 00:01:37

what Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala did. He sent

00:01:37 --> 00:01:40

down these 3 surahs to console Rasool Allahu

00:01:40 --> 00:01:41

alaihi wa sallam.

00:01:42 --> 00:01:44

First of all, is that the message

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

that Allah is trying to send to the

00:01:46 --> 00:01:47

Quraysh

00:01:47 --> 00:01:50

through Surahood is that you have to be

00:01:50 --> 00:01:53

cautious of the fact that divine justice will

00:01:53 --> 00:01:54

come from Allah

00:01:55 --> 00:01:58

If you try If you go, and you

00:01:58 --> 00:01:59

harm Rasulullah

00:01:59 --> 00:02:00

alaihi wasallam,

00:02:01 --> 00:02:03

and you go after him, then I will

00:02:03 --> 00:02:05

share with you stories of the past.

00:02:06 --> 00:02:07

And this is why we find

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

stories in Surahood.

00:02:09 --> 00:02:12

The story of Hud alayhis salam himself. The

00:02:12 --> 00:02:15

story of Nuh alayhis salam. The story of

00:02:15 --> 00:02:18

Luth alayhis salam. The story of Musa alayhis

00:02:18 --> 00:02:21

salam. The story of Shuayb alayhis salam. And

00:02:21 --> 00:02:22

these are all examples

00:02:23 --> 00:02:24

to tell the Quraysh

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

that there is no way that you can

00:02:26 --> 00:02:29

harm Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wasallam. And if something

00:02:29 --> 00:02:32

were to happen to Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wasallam,

00:02:33 --> 00:02:35

then their their divine wrath will come from

00:02:35 --> 00:02:38

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. Another interesting thing to

00:02:38 --> 00:02:40

note here is, that if you look at

00:02:40 --> 00:02:41

all these 3 surahs.

00:02:42 --> 00:02:43

Surah Yunus

00:02:43 --> 00:02:46

was about a man who left his home.

00:02:46 --> 00:02:48

Who left his people, and he left early

00:02:48 --> 00:02:49

because they rejected

00:02:50 --> 00:02:53

Initially rejected his message. But we see throughout

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

history

00:02:54 --> 00:02:57

that every single prophet, once they were rejected,

00:02:57 --> 00:02:59

they will keep on go They will keep

00:02:59 --> 00:03:01

on going back. They would go back to

00:03:01 --> 00:03:03

their home, and to their nation, and to

00:03:03 --> 00:03:05

their people. In the case of Yunus alaihis

00:03:05 --> 00:03:08

salam, he left a little early. So instead

00:03:08 --> 00:03:10

of Yunus, the message was to the prophet

00:03:11 --> 00:03:14

that Yunus alaihis salam gave up a little

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

too early on his people.

00:03:16 --> 00:03:18

You on the other hand, you should not

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

give up on your people this easily.

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

And the story of Hud alayhis salam or

00:03:22 --> 00:03:24

Surah Hud is a lesson to the prophet

00:03:24 --> 00:03:27

alayhis salam, that he on the other hand,

00:03:27 --> 00:03:29

he stayed with his people till the wrath

00:03:29 --> 00:03:31

of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala came. And you

00:03:31 --> 00:03:33

are to stay with your people, and keep

00:03:33 --> 00:03:36

on giving dawah, and you don't give up.

00:03:36 --> 00:03:38

And the story of Yusuf alayhi sallam that

00:03:38 --> 00:03:40

inshaAllah we will cover on Wednesday,

00:03:40 --> 00:03:41

is about

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

that he was ousted.

00:03:43 --> 00:03:46

He was he was kicked out in one

00:03:46 --> 00:03:48

way, and he was removed

00:03:48 --> 00:03:51

from the family due to their hatred for

00:03:51 --> 00:03:54

Yusuf alaihis salam. And this is another way

00:03:54 --> 00:03:57

of telling Rasulahu alaihi wasallam that just like

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

Yusuf

00:03:58 --> 00:04:00

was ousted from his own home

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

due to the hatred of his own brothers

00:04:03 --> 00:04:04

and his own brethren,

00:04:04 --> 00:04:07

likewise you, oh Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam,

00:04:07 --> 00:04:08

you will be ousted

00:04:08 --> 00:04:11

from a place that you love very much.

00:04:11 --> 00:04:14

I e Makkah. By who? Your own brethren.

00:04:14 --> 00:04:16

Just like in the case of

00:04:17 --> 00:04:19

Yusuf We also find interestingly that if you

00:04:19 --> 00:04:21

start the surah, Allah

00:04:22 --> 00:04:24

The end of surah,

00:04:25 --> 00:04:27

the end of Surah Yunus.

00:04:27 --> 00:04:29

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala he says,

00:04:32 --> 00:04:33

wasbirhatayakumalahuwahulhakemeen.

00:04:36 --> 00:04:39

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala tells Rasulullah salallahu wa

00:04:39 --> 00:04:41

sallam that follow what I have been get

00:04:41 --> 00:04:44

What I have given you. All that you

00:04:44 --> 00:04:45

have to do is that the wahid that

00:04:45 --> 00:04:47

I have sent you, Allah is telling

00:04:47 --> 00:04:49

our prophet shalallahu alaihi wa sallam,

00:04:49 --> 00:04:50

you are to follow that.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:55

Till the the, the decision comes from Allah

00:04:55 --> 00:04:58

subhanahu wa ta'ala. And in the very first

00:04:58 --> 00:05:01

ayah of Surahood, Allah says,

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

Again, you see the connection.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:16

So there's a lot of connections here between

00:05:16 --> 00:05:17

the ending of Surah,

00:05:18 --> 00:05:19

Yunus and Surahood.

00:05:20 --> 00:05:21

In Surahood, Allah

00:05:22 --> 00:05:24

is telling men He's telling the Quraysh in

00:05:24 --> 00:05:25

particular,

00:05:25 --> 00:05:28

that if you think that I'm only in

00:05:28 --> 00:05:30

charge of the human beings, no. I'm also

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

in charge of everything that happens on the

00:05:32 --> 00:05:35

face of this earth. In fact, every single

00:05:35 --> 00:05:38

animal that you see, whether you are aware

00:05:38 --> 00:05:39

or unaware,

00:05:39 --> 00:05:42

their rizq is also in my hands.

00:05:49 --> 00:05:50

SubhanAllah.

00:05:50 --> 00:05:52

If you look at the seas,

00:05:52 --> 00:05:55

how many different thousands of different creations of

00:05:56 --> 00:05:59

Allah exist. On land, there's so many 100

00:05:59 --> 00:06:01

and, so many 100 and different kind of

00:06:01 --> 00:06:05

animals that exist. And every single time there's

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

a system that Allah has created. There's a

00:06:07 --> 00:06:10

food chain system that Allah has created. This

00:06:10 --> 00:06:12

is all through Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:06:12 --> 00:06:16

And every single animal will receive its riz

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

due to the decision of Allah subhanahu wa

00:06:18 --> 00:06:19

ta'ala.

00:06:19 --> 00:06:21

We also find in this surah that Allah

00:06:21 --> 00:06:24

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, he mentions a story of

00:06:24 --> 00:06:26

Nuh alayhis salam. And the story of Nuh

00:06:26 --> 00:06:28

alayhis salam is very well known to us.

00:06:28 --> 00:06:29

However,

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

however, there is one

00:06:31 --> 00:06:32

important component

00:06:33 --> 00:06:35

to the story of Nuh alaihis salam that

00:06:35 --> 00:06:35

is mentioned

00:06:36 --> 00:06:37

only in surahood,

00:06:37 --> 00:06:39

that is not mentioned anywhere else in the

00:06:39 --> 00:06:41

Quran. And that is

00:06:41 --> 00:06:42

the rebelliousness

00:06:42 --> 00:06:44

of the son of Nuh

00:06:45 --> 00:06:46

And the lesson that we learned from this,

00:06:46 --> 00:06:49

brother and sisters, is that these prophets and

00:06:49 --> 00:06:50

these

00:06:51 --> 00:06:54

they gave a proper to their children. They

00:06:54 --> 00:06:56

did advise their children. They did teach their

00:06:56 --> 00:06:58

children. But at the end of the day,

00:06:58 --> 00:07:00

there comes a point in their life when

00:07:00 --> 00:07:03

they grow up that now they are

00:07:03 --> 00:07:05

Now they are responsible for their own

00:07:06 --> 00:07:08

actions. At that time Nuh alaihis salam, he's

00:07:08 --> 00:07:11

advising his son that come with us.

00:07:11 --> 00:07:13

Come with us. We are all boarding the

00:07:13 --> 00:07:14

ship. And what did he say?

00:07:18 --> 00:07:20

I'm gonna go to the mountain, and that

00:07:20 --> 00:07:22

is what's going to save me. What he

00:07:22 --> 00:07:25

thought is going to save him based on

00:07:25 --> 00:07:26

his own intellect,

00:07:26 --> 00:07:29

but that that same thing became the cause

00:07:29 --> 00:07:30

of his destruction.

00:07:30 --> 00:07:32

And subhanallah, the one thing that we need

00:07:32 --> 00:07:35

to understand as parents is that just like

00:07:35 --> 00:07:37

in the case of Nuh alaihis salam, and

00:07:37 --> 00:07:38

no one can ever question

00:07:39 --> 00:07:41

the parenting skills of Nuh alaihis salam. So

00:07:41 --> 00:07:43

what we learn from this is that a

00:07:43 --> 00:07:44

parent

00:07:44 --> 00:07:45

has a responsibility

00:07:47 --> 00:07:48

to advise their children,

00:07:48 --> 00:07:51

to teach their children, to give proper guidance

00:07:51 --> 00:07:53

to their children. But when their children goes

00:07:54 --> 00:07:56

grow up, and they get to a certain

00:07:56 --> 00:07:58

age in their life, that now they are

00:07:58 --> 00:07:59

considered as and

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

they make the wrong decisions for themselves,

00:08:03 --> 00:08:05

and they choose the wrong path for themselves,

00:08:06 --> 00:08:08

then the blame cannot be put on the

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

parent.

00:08:09 --> 00:08:11

The blame cannot be put on the parent.

00:08:12 --> 00:08:14

Yes, the parent has to understand that they

00:08:14 --> 00:08:16

have a certain obligation.

00:08:16 --> 00:08:18

When they're raising their kids, they proper They

00:08:18 --> 00:08:19

give a proper

00:08:20 --> 00:08:23

Yes, I will say that every single family,

00:08:23 --> 00:08:26

we have our own challenges. Yes, every single

00:08:26 --> 00:08:28

family, we have our certain dynamics

00:08:28 --> 00:08:29

that poses

00:08:29 --> 00:08:32

certain challenges within our families. And every single

00:08:32 --> 00:08:36

child is different. Every single child's temperament is

00:08:36 --> 00:08:38

different. And we have to work very delicately

00:08:38 --> 00:08:39

at times. Sometimes

00:08:40 --> 00:08:42

we will work with our children in a

00:08:42 --> 00:08:45

delicate manner. Sometimes we have to play the

00:08:45 --> 00:08:46

harsh way. Sometimes we might be a little

00:08:46 --> 00:08:47

harsh. Sometimes

00:08:48 --> 00:08:49

one parent is playing good cop, and the

00:08:49 --> 00:08:51

other one is playing bad cop. The point

00:08:51 --> 00:08:53

is that we all have our challenges,

00:08:54 --> 00:08:56

but the point is that if the parent

00:08:56 --> 00:08:57

understands,

00:08:57 --> 00:08:58

and they

00:08:58 --> 00:09:00

know deep down in their heart that they

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

have provided a proper

00:09:02 --> 00:09:05

and then that same young man, or that

00:09:05 --> 00:09:08

same young woman, they grow up, and they

00:09:08 --> 00:09:10

make the wrong decisions of their life, and

00:09:10 --> 00:09:14

that that becomes very detrimental to them, then

00:09:14 --> 00:09:16

the blame cannot be put on the parent.

00:09:16 --> 00:09:18

And at that time, no one We often

00:09:18 --> 00:09:21

find in society that people wanna blame the

00:09:21 --> 00:09:23

parent. If this is the case, then we

00:09:23 --> 00:09:25

would sit here and blame Nuh alaihis salam.

00:09:25 --> 00:09:28

Absolutely not. So this is why we find

00:09:28 --> 00:09:29

this story in in Surahood.

00:09:30 --> 00:09:32

We also find the story of shuaib alayhis

00:09:32 --> 00:09:35

salam. We find the story of Hud alayhis

00:09:35 --> 00:09:37

salam. And these were a group of people

00:09:37 --> 00:09:37

who said what?

00:09:39 --> 00:09:42

Is there anyone who is stronger than us?

00:09:42 --> 00:09:44

Just like today we find many different

00:09:45 --> 00:09:46

arrogant people,

00:09:46 --> 00:09:48

arrogant governments around the world.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:52

Arrogant political systems that they say that there

00:09:52 --> 00:09:54

is no one who is more powerful full

00:09:54 --> 00:09:56

than us. We are the most powerful entity

00:09:56 --> 00:09:59

on earth. No. The most powerful entity is

00:09:59 --> 00:10:01

the entity of Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala. And

00:10:01 --> 00:10:04

Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala he reminds these people

00:10:04 --> 00:10:06

that you think that you are the most

00:10:06 --> 00:10:08

powerful, but you are not the most powerful.

00:10:08 --> 00:10:11

If Allah wanted, he will bring a punishment

00:10:11 --> 00:10:13

upon you, and there is no way you

00:10:13 --> 00:10:15

can stop the wrath of Allah

00:10:16 --> 00:10:18

And then at the end of the surah,

00:10:18 --> 00:10:20

this is where the crux of the matter

00:10:20 --> 00:10:20

comes.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:22

There was a,

00:10:23 --> 00:10:23

Ibra Abbas

00:10:25 --> 00:10:25

he says

00:10:26 --> 00:10:28

that there were certain verses

00:10:29 --> 00:10:31

in Surahood that were revealed to the prophet

00:10:33 --> 00:10:34

to which the prophet

00:10:34 --> 00:10:35

he said,

00:10:38 --> 00:10:39

The prophet

00:10:39 --> 00:10:40

says, Dawud

00:10:40 --> 00:10:41

and his brothers

00:10:42 --> 00:10:43

made me old.

00:10:44 --> 00:10:46

In fact there is mention that one time

00:10:47 --> 00:10:49

there was a tabri. He's, he went to

00:10:49 --> 00:10:52

sleep. He saw Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wasallam, and

00:10:52 --> 00:10:53

he said,

00:10:53 --> 00:10:55

I have come across a report

00:10:57 --> 00:10:58

that you said,

00:11:00 --> 00:11:01

That

00:11:02 --> 00:11:04

you said that Hud and

00:11:05 --> 00:11:05

their brothers,

00:11:06 --> 00:11:07

they made me old.

00:11:08 --> 00:11:11

So he said that what part of Hud

00:11:11 --> 00:11:13

made you old? And he says that it's

00:11:13 --> 00:11:13

not

00:11:14 --> 00:11:16

that made me old, it's

00:11:16 --> 00:11:18

that made me old. And not because of

00:11:18 --> 00:11:21

surah The whole surah, but there were few

00:11:21 --> 00:11:23

things that were revealed, and which we That

00:11:23 --> 00:11:25

comes towards the end of the surah that

00:11:25 --> 00:11:28

made me old. And at that time, the

00:11:28 --> 00:11:29

prophet he

00:11:29 --> 00:11:31

said in the dream, he recited the ayaat.

00:11:31 --> 00:11:33

The point is But I will say this,

00:11:33 --> 00:11:34

before I get to those ayaat.

00:11:35 --> 00:11:38

Often, when people are on a mission to

00:11:38 --> 00:11:39

do something,

00:11:39 --> 00:11:42

In life, regarding anything. Any mission in life.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:45

If a person is working so hard,

00:11:46 --> 00:11:48

and they're not getting anywhere with their mission,

00:11:49 --> 00:11:51

3 things are gonna happen. Either number 1,

00:11:51 --> 00:11:53

you will lose hope in your system. You

00:11:53 --> 00:11:55

will lose hope in your in your mission.

00:11:56 --> 00:11:59

Number 2 is that a person may become

00:11:59 --> 00:11:59

reckless,

00:12:00 --> 00:12:02

and they they may become violent

00:12:02 --> 00:12:03

towards others.

00:12:04 --> 00:12:07

Or number 3, what could happen is that

00:12:07 --> 00:12:09

they could give up, and they'll become like

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

the rest. Okay? They'll become like the rest,

00:12:12 --> 00:12:13

and you know as I say, if you

00:12:13 --> 00:12:15

can't beat them, if you can't beat them,

00:12:15 --> 00:12:17

then join them. This is what I'm saying

00:12:17 --> 00:12:20

in English. So, either three things are gonna

00:12:20 --> 00:12:22

happen, they will live in their shadows, and

00:12:22 --> 00:12:24

they will just leave their their cause, and

00:12:24 --> 00:12:26

they will go and join up with the

00:12:26 --> 00:12:27

other party.

00:12:27 --> 00:12:28

3 things can happen.

00:12:29 --> 00:12:30

In this surah, Allah

00:12:31 --> 00:12:32

is telling Rasulullah

00:12:34 --> 00:12:35

that none of these three things can happen.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:38

Okay? In your cause, you're gonna keep on

00:12:38 --> 00:12:41

giving dawah. These three things can happen, but

00:12:41 --> 00:12:43

in your case, make sure you stay away

00:12:43 --> 00:12:45

from these kind of things. First of all,

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

is Allah

00:12:46 --> 00:12:46

says,

00:12:49 --> 00:12:50

That stay consistent

00:12:51 --> 00:12:53

with what you have been told to do.

00:12:53 --> 00:12:55

Meaning, that do not do not lose hope

00:12:55 --> 00:12:57

in the cause, in your cause. You understand?

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

Do not lose mercy do not lose hope

00:13:00 --> 00:13:02

in the mercy of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:03

Do not lose,

00:13:03 --> 00:13:06

your hope and your focus from your overall

00:13:06 --> 00:13:06

mission.

00:13:07 --> 00:13:08

Remain consistent.

00:13:09 --> 00:13:11

Then number 2 is, Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:13:11 --> 00:13:11

says,

00:13:16 --> 00:13:18

And do not deviate from Allah

00:13:19 --> 00:13:22

Do not become reckless. You understand? Allah has

00:13:22 --> 00:13:24

told you to give dawah, and Allah

00:13:24 --> 00:13:26

gave you certain rules,

00:13:26 --> 00:13:29

that how you are to give dawah. If

00:13:29 --> 00:13:29

Allah

00:13:30 --> 00:13:31

is telling Musa alayhi salam

00:13:32 --> 00:13:34

and Harun alaihis salam that when you speak

00:13:34 --> 00:13:36

to a tyrant like Firaoun,

00:13:36 --> 00:13:37

then make sure,

00:13:40 --> 00:13:43

Speak to him softly. Speak to him firmly,

00:13:43 --> 00:13:45

but do not be arrogant and so forth,

00:13:45 --> 00:13:47

but speak softly also,

00:13:49 --> 00:13:51

So that perhaps he may come back to

00:13:51 --> 00:13:52

Allah

00:13:53 --> 00:13:53

So Rasulullah

00:13:55 --> 00:13:56

we always see that when it came to

00:13:56 --> 00:14:00

giving dawah, he was always very calm. His

00:14:00 --> 00:14:01

demeanor was always

00:14:01 --> 00:14:04

very peaceful and so forth. He was never

00:14:04 --> 00:14:05

very confrontational.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

When they became confrontational,

00:14:07 --> 00:14:09

then in some cases, the problem is he

00:14:09 --> 00:14:10

may become confrontational.

00:14:11 --> 00:14:12

But overall,

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

even when they were acting arrogantly with Rasulullah

00:14:15 --> 00:14:17

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, he never ever became

00:14:17 --> 00:14:19

reckless in his dawah. And this is a

00:14:19 --> 00:14:20

lesson for all of us. We often give

00:14:20 --> 00:14:23

dawah to people, but when people reject our

00:14:23 --> 00:14:24

message,

00:14:24 --> 00:14:26

and what we're telling them they rejected, we

00:14:26 --> 00:14:29

become reckless. We become very rude. We become

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

very disrespectful,

00:14:30 --> 00:14:32

and we cross certain limits that are uncalled

00:14:32 --> 00:14:34

for. So the second thing the prophet as

00:14:34 --> 00:14:36

salam is being told by Allah is, do

00:14:36 --> 00:14:39

not become reckless, do not deviate from the

00:14:39 --> 00:14:39

path.

00:14:52 --> 00:14:53

Allah says,

00:14:54 --> 00:14:55

And do not include

00:14:55 --> 00:14:57

or do not incline

00:14:57 --> 00:15:00

towards these people who are the wrong doers.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:02

Once again, the 13th can happen which is,

00:15:02 --> 00:15:04

a person may just completely give up on

00:15:04 --> 00:15:06

their cause, and join with the wrong doers.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:08

And here all again, Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:15:08 --> 00:15:09

is saying to the prophet

00:15:10 --> 00:15:12

no, this cannot happen with you either. And

00:15:12 --> 00:15:14

it is because of this verse,

00:15:19 --> 00:15:19

that the prophet

00:15:20 --> 00:15:23

he said, that this ayah, though it may

00:15:23 --> 00:15:26

seem very, you know, just a general ayah,

00:15:26 --> 00:15:27

a standard ayah,

00:15:27 --> 00:15:30

but the weight behind this verse

00:15:30 --> 00:15:32

is so enormous

00:15:32 --> 00:15:34

that this is what made me old.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:37

This is what made me old. And there

00:15:37 --> 00:15:38

are some certain verses by the way in

00:15:38 --> 00:15:39

the Quran,

00:15:40 --> 00:15:42

that were so heavy on rasulullah sallallahu alaihi

00:15:42 --> 00:15:44

wa sallam. That's why ibn Abbas, once again

00:15:44 --> 00:15:47

he says, that this is one of the

00:15:47 --> 00:15:50

more The most difficult verses that was revealed

00:15:50 --> 00:15:51

to the prophet of alaihi wa sallam. Meaning

00:15:51 --> 00:15:53

that a verse that carried a lot of

00:15:53 --> 00:15:55

weight. Another verse that we find in the

00:15:55 --> 00:15:56

Quran is

00:16:00 --> 00:16:02

Oh Prophet, convey the message that had been

00:16:02 --> 00:16:04

that has been sent to you. And then

00:16:04 --> 00:16:05

Allah says to the Prophet

00:16:09 --> 00:16:11

If you don't do this, you have not

00:16:11 --> 00:16:12

fulfilled your mission.

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

This ayah also was very

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

heavy on Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam. So

00:16:17 --> 00:16:19

once again, this is a lesson for all

00:16:19 --> 00:16:21

of us also. This is a lesson for

00:16:21 --> 00:16:23

all of us also, that when it comes

00:16:23 --> 00:16:25

to maintaining our deen, number 1 is we

00:16:25 --> 00:16:27

don't lose hope in Allah.

00:16:30 --> 00:16:32

And number 2 is we will never ever

00:16:32 --> 00:16:34

deviate from our path.

00:16:35 --> 00:16:37

And number 3 is, today we see so

00:16:37 --> 00:16:40

many people, they leave their deen, they go

00:16:40 --> 00:16:42

and they join with the wali mean. Why?

00:16:42 --> 00:16:43

Because

00:16:44 --> 00:16:46

they they find more safety over there. Allah

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

is saying,

00:16:49 --> 00:16:52

Do not ever incline towards the wrongdoers. Why?

00:16:52 --> 00:16:54

Because eventually the wrath of Allah

00:16:55 --> 00:16:57

will come upon these people.

00:16:58 --> 00:17:00

This is also in Surahood.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:07

Whenever a whenever a home, whenever a nation

00:17:07 --> 00:17:09

does something that is wrong, they will never

00:17:09 --> 00:17:12

ever have perpetual success. The wrath of Allah

00:17:13 --> 00:17:15

will come upon them most certainly. So these

00:17:15 --> 00:17:17

are three things that were sent to the

00:17:17 --> 00:17:18

prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. Three things that

00:17:18 --> 00:17:20

were told by Allah to the prophet sallallahu

00:17:20 --> 00:17:21

alaihi wa sallam. And these are three things

00:17:21 --> 00:17:23

that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala is delivering, and

00:17:23 --> 00:17:25

telling us as a ummah that stick to

00:17:25 --> 00:17:28

these three things as you as you progress.

00:17:28 --> 00:17:30

And you come across people who are arrogant,

00:17:30 --> 00:17:32

and people who may do loon against you,

00:17:32 --> 00:17:34

but stick to these three things. I ask

00:17:34 --> 00:17:34

Allah

00:17:35 --> 00:17:38

to make us from amongst those who will

00:17:38 --> 00:17:40

remain consistent to our deen, and we will

00:17:40 --> 00:17:42

never deviate from our deen, and make us

00:17:42 --> 00:17:44

from amongst those that we will never ever

00:17:44 --> 00:17:46

be inclined towards

00:17:49 --> 00:17:49
