Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Dear brothers and sisters Allahu Malakal hummed. Ask Allah subhana wa Taala it may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us more and more all praises for Allah subhanho wa Taala we were talking about the month of Ramadan that it is on the horizon. We are so close to the month of Ramadan. And now Alhamdulillah we are here exactly where we want it to be in the month of Ramadan. I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us many more months, ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to grant us all the good that he has promised us and He has promised in the Quran, may Allah Subhana Allah grant us all of that in our life. Amira, Bella Alameen so inshallah this year,

00:01:03 --> 00:01:46

part of the Ramadan series I want to be conducting is, I want to go through some inshallah some sutras every year going forward in sha Allah and what this idea that I have is that take one surah and really just focus on that one surah throughout the entire month of Ramadan. Now I understand that many videos in many series across the world are more geared towards Jews, and there is a breakup of the joys because there are 30, just 30 days in the month of Ramadan. So it works perfectly fine, where you take one job and you just simply highlight one just but if you study the Quran, actually in the messages of Allah subhanho wa Taala are not divided based on Jews, but

00:01:46 --> 00:02:33

they're divided based on sutras. So every single surah is, has his one central theme message, it has one primary message, and we know that every single surah in the Quran may not be more than just there are some, some such as so the Bacara there are more than one job, it covers almost two and a half jobs or two jobs in a quarter, you find sources such as Ali Imran, which are shorter than that. And then you have Surahs across the Quran, which cover perhaps a quarter a half, three quarters of a juice, but when you look at the juice in itself and you have multiple sutras, then you cannot really just take one jaws and say this is one general theme message or this is one central message of Allah

00:02:33 --> 00:03:14

subhanho wa Taala and this is why this year inshallah instead of I was actually initially talking, thinking about just taking a judge, but instead of that, I've decided that I just want to take one surah of the Quran and just focus on that one. Surah so that next time in sha Allah, when you read this surah when I read this surah I can really connect with the surah and understand what ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is trying to say, it is really difficult to cover one entire just because there's always going to be something about that super awesome, beautiful is about a surah that when you try to cover it just by just you may have to skim over it. But when you take one surah and you focus on

00:03:14 --> 00:03:56

that and you highlight the nuances and the beautiful subtleties of that Surah then you're really able to immerse yourself into that one surah so this is why in sha Allah instead of going through a juice, inshallah this Ramadan, I'll be focusing only on one surah Now, of course, I know that the question that you may be asking is that what Surah are we going to be covering. And of course, you know, when it comes to the Muslim world, we always love to hear the sewers such as South Africa have so to sort of use of Surya seen sort of work they are sort of Hadith. These are sutras that are very common. And there is a plethora of the Pharisee and explanations that we will find on the sutras.

00:03:56 --> 00:04:42

However, there is one sutra that is very near and dear to my heart. Because every single time I've read this sutra, every time I've read a Tafseer on the sutra, every time I read an explanation on the sutra, it has just has brought me closer to the sutra. And this surah is surah. Four on total four on starts at the end the tail end of the 18 jewels and it goes into the 19th Jewels almost approximately a quarter way into the 19 jewels. So it's not a very big is a very, very big surah. There are 77 is set in the Surah. And just to give you a very brief view of what the surah is, first of all is that this surah is considered as a murky surah. And when we talk about a mucky Surah as

00:04:42 --> 00:05:00

you all know and if you are students of the Quran, then you know that every single murky Surah revolves in terms of his themes around certain key ideas such as though he'd such as rissalah, believing in the finality of the province of Rasulullah sallallahu

00:05:00 --> 00:05:45

While he was selling him, it talks about the akhira it talks about previous nations, it talks about, you know, these are the, these are some of the key things that he talks about. He talks about always the power of Allah subhanaw, taala, and so forth. So this is what the maki sutras are go into just the AMA, every nearly every single surah is a murky surah and if you study them, we will see that how Allah talks about the previous nations how Allah subhanho wa Taala he talks about his powers, and what he's able to do. So likewise suited for Khan is for the most part, besides a few if at the end, which are classified as Madani is, but overall, this surah is considered as a mucky surah. Now

00:05:45 --> 00:06:28

one thing that I really want to highlight here is that sometimes when we really understand or try to read the Quran, and we read these themes, Tauheed Risala akhira previous stories of the previous nations, that a lot of times we look at them from a very small or from a very minimal perspective. Now when Allah talks about Tauheed, we talk about this is domain in essence is theology is talking about the Oneness of Allah subhanho wa taala. When we talk about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we're talking about the how he was the final messenger, he was the greatest manifestation of what Allah wants from us, in within a human being, we find that in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:06:28 --> 00:07:15

sallam. So when we come across these murky surahs, is we should honestly simply just look at them as though he that he saw that I could. But Subhanallah we live today in a world where our theology, our Islamic creed, is constantly under attack by people who are not, who are not favoring Islam, people who hate or perhaps they dislike Islam, they are creating videos after videos to discredit every single notion of Islam. And whenever you find people who are trying to discredit Islam, it starts from the top, it starts with theology. So that's why when we say the sutras, it should not just be simply from the point of view, that there's just three there is an Astra, but if you study each

00:07:15 --> 00:08:04

mucky, Surah, with depth, then in sha Allah, all these questions that come from atheists, from the atheists, or from the agnostics, or when you have people who do believe in other religions, but when they create videos, and when they write papers against Islam, questioning and objecting, the the Oneness of Allah subhanho wa taala, objecting to that, or Sua Allahu Allah, yourself, and how he cannot be a prophet and so forth, we find the solutions, or we find the answers to those objections in these surahs. So this is why when it comes to MKi, sutras, we have to really broaden our horizon and broaden our our view as to what the sutras are talking about. Now, interestingly, every every

00:08:04 --> 00:08:49

single surah in the Quran, we learn that is connected to the surah before and is connected to the surah afterwards, and so therefore Khan is of no exception. So the node actually finishes off ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala saying Allah in Allah He maphis And my wife without, and Allah subhanho wa Taala begins. So therefore upon in this in the second idea, he says Allah Vela, who will customer worth without. And the connection there is that if you have and I'm going to give this example first so that I know that this example will resonate with everyone. If you have a house, or perhaps you have an apartment, you rent out an apartment, or let's just say you rent out a shopping space. Now, what

00:08:49 --> 00:09:30

happens is that there is someone who is called the landlord, someone who actually owns the structure of the building, and then you are the tenant, the person who's actually renting out that space. Now, whatever is in that space, there may be a desk, there may be supplies, whatever does exist within that shopping center, or that apartment does not belong to the landlord. So the landlord is in control of the structure, and you are the owner, you may be the tenant, you may be the owner of the things inside that building. So we're talking about an external affair and we're talking about internal affairs or an external matter and or an internal matter when it comes to Allah subhanho wa

00:09:30 --> 00:10:00

Taala and sort of noon Allah subhanho wa Taala says Allah in lillahi Maphorisa what it all mean that Allah subhanaw taala is saying that first of all, whatever does exist within the skies of the Earth, whatever it does exist within all of that belongs to me, belongs to Allah subhanho wa taala. This is Allah saying, and then Allah is saying so the full upon law who Musa when you talk about this entire sutra or when we look at this entire

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

universe from a whole from an outside or external perspective, Allah Subhan Allah saying that I own so basically Allah is saying that I am the landlord. And not only that, but you may be the tenant and you feel like they you have ownership. But in reality, I have ownership of everything what is inside to so this is beautifully how we find this connection between sort of node and Surah Al Furqan. We also find that at the end of certain note Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Will Allah who will be equally che in the IDM, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the knower of everything. And in this Surah Surah Furqan. In the very beginning, we find wahala kakula che in for pada, who taka de

00:10:47 --> 00:11:32

la Allah subhanaw taala is saying that he has created this entire dunya with very precise details, and Subhanallah when we talk about very precise details without going to the subject matter. But if you read books about how Islam and how are the really proves the existence of Allah subhana with the Allah Subhanallah, you will find many philosophy philosophers, you'll find many scientists who actually do believe in God, or people who do believe in God, these are people who are educated. And they will say that if you look at the intricate details of even, for example, something as small as a clock, or something as a watch, then there are so many moving pieces. Now these are usually

00:11:32 --> 00:12:17

digital watches. But if you stay I mean, we look at the watches of the past, there's so many small, small pieces, and for one small watch to operate, there's so many small pieces, do you think that this entire dunya can flow and function without a supreme god? Think about it for a moment, it cannot, because there's so many precise details. And hence ALLAH SubhanA saying, well Hala kakula che in for pada hooter Khedira every single thing that Allah has created, He has created with precise measurement with precise with precision so that everything can run very smoothly. And this is why Allah says at the end of the node, will Allahu be coalition and ally. When you create

00:12:17 --> 00:12:57

something with the utmost amount or the highest level of precision, then you're going to know you fully are, you know what's inside that a product or what's inside that matter or that that operational piece. So this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying he knows at the same time he has created everything with very precise details. And once again, as I said earlier, when we talk about towhees it should not just be viewed as oneness of Allah subhanho wa taala. Once again, when we study the sutras, we learn how to respond and this is something that we will find also in the Surah that Allah subhanho wa Taala how you defend Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. There were there

00:12:57 --> 00:13:42

were objections against Allah, objections against the Prophet saw some objections against the Quran, objections against the Astra and one by one Allah subhana wa Tada in the sutra, he addresses and he answers all those objections. So this is something that we find also in this surah finally, we also find that at the end sort of node, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Fenley yadadri levena you Holly fauna and Emery, those who have the all of Allah subhanho wa Taala those who have that this ability to understand Allah's authority and Allah has an Allah's power these people should warn though the other people but yeah, that didn't lead either you hardly find an anomaly and to see behind fitted

00:13:42 --> 00:14:21

on oh you sleep on that they should warn them about a punishment that will come from Allah subhanho wa Taala and then here the beginning of Soto for Allah says the battle can levena settle for honor Allah Abdi Leah Kunal in the aisle Amin and ADINA, Allah Subhan, Allah saying that we have sent the Prophet SAW Selim as a person who will warn the people about an upcoming punishment if they don't return to Allah, or if they don't believe in Allah subhanho wa taala. So we see that there's a connection between the ending of sort of node and the beginning of sort of upon is something that we learned throughout the entire Quran. And not only that, but once again insisted upon what we will be

00:14:21 --> 00:14:59

covering inshallah I've shared that. Now, one last thing I do want to share is that one of the most beautiful things about the surah is what comes at the end of the surah and that is personally my most favorite part, and that is the the section where Allah subhana wa Taala he craves this distinction, that who are those who are the WHO ARE THE Rebadow ramen and see once again sort of full upon the word for God means the criteria, the one who creates that differentiation, and SubhanAllah. The reason why the Quran is a criterion is because the only way you can value something is when you

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

compare it with something else. Like have you ever seen an infomercial? For example, watching an infomercial about a vacuum cleaner for example, now, it will tell you that what can this vacuum cleaner do? It will show you that how this vacuum cleaner is better than the other vacuum cleaners. And then not only that, but it will also address the some of the questions or people that have posed questions and they have asked that how does this certain vacuum work? It will answer all those questions. This is what makes this particular vacuum and that infomercial more better than some of the other ones in the market. Likewise when we say Allah subhana wa Taala has created a he has sent

00:15:42 --> 00:16:24

down and fought upon this Quran is full on Allah subhanho wa Taala he explains that how this Quran is better than the other messages or how this Quran is unique, how the message of Allah is unique. How amazing is Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So just like we find an infomercial, Likewise, Allah subhanho wa Taala explains why this is better. When you talk to the people when we talk to the people of the the Quraysh. This is revealed in Makkah, when the probability something's going to them, this is being demonstrated to them being explained to them. That why the message of the Quran the message of Islam is better than your message. It is Allah creating a distinction between his

00:16:24 --> 00:17:03

message and their message. And how this works on it creates a distinction between hot in Boston, how this surah creates a distinction between those who believe in Accra and those who don't believe in Africa and what will happen on the day of judgment and how people will be separated. And not only that, but at the end as I said Allah subhana wa Tala talks about the the qualities and the characteristics of His slaves, mean that anyone who does not have these characteristics, they are not the slaves of Allah subhanaw taala they are the slaves of Allah, but they do not have that characteristic of that they are the slaves of Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is why we study those

00:17:03 --> 00:17:45

last ayat and this is why even if I am, in many scholars, they have said that anyone who truly embodies those 11 characteristics are going to be mentioned at the end of the sutra, that inshallah Allah will give them a lofty rank in this dunya and in the Akela Inshallah, so this is why I've chosen this surah we will Inshallah, go through the sutra and break down the sutra, piece by piece in sha Allah and just go and study the sutra because once again, it's about studying the Quran. It's about really immersing yourself into the Quran, rather than just reading the translation because you really do not get the fruits of the Quran through the simple translation. I'm not trying to

00:17:45 --> 00:18:27

discourage anyone, if you can try to read the Quran and try to read the translation. But if we truly want to benefit from the Quran, we have to immerse ourselves into the Quran. And that means that every single Surah of the Quran should never be belittle, I understand that there are some soldiers that in the Muslim world are often sought out sudra as they are, you know, have a sort of a high reputation in the Muslim world, but that doesn't mean that the other soldiers have absolutely no message and no lessons to offer. So the furqan inshallah is a Surah that we'll be covering. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us feel amongst those who are able to really understand the Quran,

00:18:27 --> 00:19:07

apply the Quran, and not only that, but ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to create within us this understanding or this way of looking at the Quran, so that we just don't look at it from the top but rather we're able to dive into the Quran and discover the true gems of every single Surah Inshallah, we will be will be once again starting tomorrow we will begin with iron number one and just simply one one idea after another inshallah or Inshallah, at times we may even combine a few ideas because they are highlighting one central idea and shallow then we'll cover those few ideas and then we'll draw we'll draw lessons and reflections from them. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make this

00:19:07 --> 00:19:18

journey an easy one. I mean, no, but I mean, just like Kamala had a Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh shareholder on our lawn levy
