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

hamdulillah Hannibal alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah see the MBA will mursaleen while early he was happy he womanist and Nebuchadnezzar he, Dean allama john damnit home, Amina Xena Emmanuelle Amina, sorry, whatever so but what was obvious to me? No, but I mean from them about once again, Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. We're going to now begin our study of some of the narrations in regards to the meaning of alfalfa that are found in traditional commentary. There's a score of them if you have if you're only

00:00:30--> 00:00:39

if the only things in your access are English versions of the seer literature, then the tips, the abridged version of Evan kathina, which is published

00:00:40--> 00:01:14

or modified, and in English will have these narrations. So I'm just going to give you instead of giving you scores and scores of narrations and who narrated them, I'll give you the gist of it by just trying to you know, translating one of them and they represent really other narrations that are very similar. For example, in to see the poverty, there are pages upon pages upon pages of who narrated the same exact narrations like two eight pages of just that that same narration coming from various sources. So instead of the redundancy, which is done, it's a great scholarly contribution, but just for our purposes, we know that they exist in numerous quantity, so we'll just cite one of

00:01:14--> 00:01:32

them that represents the rest of them and you can look up more of them inshallah Tada, if you have the opportunity. So for instance, there's this famous narration quoted at aduna mancozeb. Do you know what alcocer is in the Hunan film Jenna and the the the narration goes on that no doubt it is a river or a flowing river other in paradise.

00:01:34--> 00:02:15

Poverty actually occurred to me Ramallah comments in JAMA Lacan. He says, Allah Barfi Holyfield milk difficulty Allah. Remember we said there are two rivers or ponds, bodies of water, and one of them is in the place of standing and the other is in paradise. He says even the narrations regarding the place of standing there are many of them, they're not few. So we have two equally popular narrations among the first generation. Then he says, We're called to use and use some metallic, it's possible that those rivers or that river was called that name and co author which has to do with abundance. I will help co author the Catholic elevada with Shari Berman. Oh, Matthew Mohammed in Salalah, Alison

00:02:15--> 00:02:50

Huneck, maybe it's called closer because of this of the huge numbers of followers of the messenger that belonged to his own masala on a sudden, may Allah make us from them, because of the huge numbers of people that will be drinking from it. Maybe it's called COVID. For that reason, Uncle Toby comments, or he says what you said, Maybe he let my female hydel Kathy Roma and Kathy, or maybe it's called that because the the benefits of it and the goodness of that river is a lot. There's a lot of goodness in it. And there's a lot of water flowing from it. And there's plenty for lots and lots of people. So perhaps because of these reasons, it's given the attribute of alcocer. Then I

00:02:50--> 00:03:26

want to share with you perhaps a really interesting variation, which I alluded to last in the session before that helps us reconcile these two things. Are we contradicting the sell off? Are we contradicting the older generation, even the narrations of the Sahaba? When we say that alcocer means more than just the river in paradise or the river knocking? Are we contradicting them? Or is the other scholars who have other opinions? Are they contradicting the first generation we find this narration of ignore a bus for the Allahu anhu and the other person involved in this narration is sorry, who are the lahoma? Let's see what they have to say. I didn't know Ambassador nokhada Phil

00:03:26--> 00:04:06

Coulter who El Hierro, Kathie Lee appa, Hola, La Jolla, blah, blah says that it is the great good that Allah had granted only and exclusively to his messengers of Allah, Allah tell them in other words, even our boss did not say that it's the river, that it's the river in paradise. Now, interestingly, for culturally and this is something that was quoted on behalf of ignored by us by CWA. And he was speaking to a man in Russia and Khalid Abu Bashar Saku to the sorry, who I said to say the job aid for international finance in Yamuna, Hunan, Indiana. But the people assume that this is a river in paradise. So how can he just say it's the it's great good? are lots of good ignore

00:04:06--> 00:04:44

bustle? Well, the Allahu taala in Houma when so many people are thinking that it's the river in paradise. How do you reconcile the two? Remember a conversation is taking place between who these are Sahaba these are all Sahaba. So what is your basic color? Sorry, and now a levy Finjan mineral hydrology aka hula iya symbol. to them. It's a simple matter. The river that Allah gave him in Paradise is from the God that Allah gave him. In other words is not there's no contradiction. It's not limited. That's not the good that it's limited to it includes it and there's more to it than that too. And this is why you find remarkable scholar scholarly commentary by people like a show.

00:04:44--> 00:05:00

Can you like him Allah? and Lucy Rahim Allah, they made a list of these goods that they could think of? What could a lab be referring to when you refer to the goods that Allah gave his messenger so a lot more on each of them. We made a list of them by mamarazzi before. Now I'm going to give you an additional list of what are these

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

That abundant good that enormous amounts of good that Allah gave his messenger sallallahu sallam, what does it include? The first one what in neck Allah, Allah, Allah Aleem that you are committed to an incredible character. You know we're living in times with the messengers character is being attacked. There's character assassination taking place against the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how come he was polygamous? How can he was this? How can he was that and Allah says one of the great gifts of Allah to him is his character. And this is something that Muslims have to not only appreciate, but stand by and be proud of. We have to be proud of this, that everything that

00:05:36--> 00:06:13

messenger does Salallahu alaihe salam, you couldn't do it better. It can't be done better. This is the greatest way it can be done. So we have to we have to appreciate that and we have to appreciate that this is a gift of Allah to him. And to not appreciate that about him is to not appreciate one of the great gifts Allah gave his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then it's Nobu and rusada. Nobu itself this huge responsibility. And this at the same time, this incredible honor to be the final messenger on the face of this earth. And to be a messenger of what the final words of Allah the Great word of Allah azza wa jal, this in and of itself is a huge hype that Allah has given him.

00:06:13--> 00:06:49

This is part of an author, part of ill health is His mercy on Ursula K. Laura Martin Delilah mean, if you haven't sent you at all with any purpose, except as a mercy for all the peoples and all the nations of the world, and this is also in our times become a controversy. Your religion preaches violence, your religion tells you to kill innocence. Your religion is a religion of hate. You know, I listen to a lot of Christian talk radio that's what they talk about Islamic religion I hate this guy Mohammed, they don't say someone love Harley Davidson. And by the way, you know, he commanded people to kill he commanded people to, you know, torture, and that's what they're talking about

00:06:49--> 00:07:28

this. You've seen this on the news. We're tired of watching this stuff, right? But we do have to understand the Quran does talk about violence when they can quote out because they're there, right? They are there. So how do we understand them? How do we understand them? Probably the most controversial is according to their standards. And the idea we're at least comfortable discussing the sewers. We're at least comfortable discussing our places like salt October. So October. So October is very uncompromising and very unforgiving. It's very unforgiving. It's so it's so vicious. And it's antagonism against the kuffaar It doesn't even begin with Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. It

00:07:28--> 00:07:44

doesn't even mention Allah as mercy doesn't begin like that. And when the Allahu anhu was asked, actually, he was asked, why does it begin with Bismillah? He said because it came down with a sword out of its cover, you know, the mean of the sword the cover? This is what I came down with the sword out of it's covered.

00:07:45--> 00:08:06

That's how he responded. That's a pretty, pretty stern suit. It's very uncompromising. You could even argue politically incorrect surah but you know what's amazing about that surah Allah didn't begin with his mercy, but he ended with the messengers mercy, Bill mininova ofin Rahim. Allah kujaku lumen unfussy come as Islam Allah himani

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

Elisa Minato Rahim. Allah did not begin with his mercy, but at the end whose mercy as he mentioned, the mercy of the messenger Salallahu alaihe salam, how do we understand that? Why would Allah mention the mercy of His Messenger in a sutra that seems to have no mercy at all, even from the beginning, the kuffaar have four months before they're executed for sickle fill out the orbita asuran. Right. And then after that, you know, but I mean, Allahu Allahu Li begins that way, Ally's announcement of not having anything to do with the mushrikeen, nor his messenger, they have nothing to do with them, and that they are going to be humiliated and put down on the earth, and they're not

00:08:47--> 00:08:52

going to be able to overpower their enemies mean, the co founder being told it's not your time anymore.

00:08:54--> 00:09:25

You're not going to be able to overpower a lot anymore, your time is done. Very uncompromising not, then what does that have to do with mercy? How do we explain that to a Christian friend or a Jewish friend? How do we explain these ions? I'm going to spend a little bit of time on this because it's part of what we have to appreciate about these ions, we should study these ions and what the scholars have said about them. But also we should appreciate the things that are being said in our time, and how to respond to them and how to, you know, understand our response to them for ourselves and also for the benefit of others. You see, Allah had sent messengers throughout history. And we

00:09:25--> 00:10:00

know that in the Christians, not everybody else knows that to the people of the book, know that, that Allah sent messengers, and then the messengers came into the majority follow them or did not follow them. The majority did not follow them. And when the majority did not follow them, and the majority decided that they're going to remain kofod they're going to remain disbelievers. Then Allah azza wa jal sent punishment upon them not just in Hellfire, but where else this world also, Allah destroyed them by a flood or an earthquake or fire from the sky or the town is turned upside down. There are all kinds of horrific punishments and what's the crime

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

The crime isn't covered. The crime is specifically Cofer against a messenger in his face. You Living in the Time of a messenger, his attitude, just heard about him. You met him. You saw he was your neighbor and you were still disbelievers. And you remained that way for decade after decade after decade, in the case of Newark for centuries, how dare you not only will you get punishment and Hellfire you will also get destroyed. Here, you understand that the crime is to disbelieve in a messenger in his presence. That's the crime. And over and over and over again, a lot destroys the nation that disbelieves in the messenger in his face, in His presence. This is the son of Allah.

00:10:39--> 00:10:54

This is the Sunnah of Allah. This is how Allah does things. And Allah says, well, and as soon as Allah hit Abdullah, you will not find a change in the way Allah does things. Now will the Christians agree that God destroys nations or destroyed nations that disbelieved? Absolutely, because their Bible is full of it.

00:10:55--> 00:11:32

It's filled with what we have in our book, too. They have it. Now let's take the next step. We believe Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a messenger, just like new is a messenger just like solid is a messenger agreed. Right now. These messengers came they're warning the people if you don't believe a punishment is coming in near half hoffa. nakooma. w. Magazine. I'm afraid for you and punishment of an enormous day. I'm afraid for you. I'm afraid for you. Did the people take those warnings? Seriously? No. Come on. We've been hearing your warnings all year, all 10 years now bring it already? When is it coming? Well, coolangatta hasn't wide. One is when is this problem is gonna

00:11:32--> 00:11:55

be fulfilled. We've been hearing you talk about this. We're tired of it. Now. You know what, just bring it. If you've got it, bring it. Well, we can handle it. That's how they started talking to the messengers. Then the punishment came. And when the punishment came, it's not like a law. Give them a chance. Hey, you see it, now you're ready to believe. In other words, the floodwaters came. And they're about to crush the cafe's house and then hit the pause button.

00:11:56--> 00:12:25

And then New Horizons comes over and says, did they tell you? You want to believe now were they given that opportunity? Once the floodwaters reach here, they're not gonna stop they're gonna keep going. You understand? In other words, the opportunity to believe is not before Allah overpowers them. The opportunity to believe is not after it but before it That's what I'm saying. You can only believe before love doing is a punishment, not after now come to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is a novela. Once the punishment comes, it cannot be stopped.

00:12:26--> 00:13:00

Who's the criminal? The core HR. they disbelieved in a messenger in his face. What do they deserve according to this another law, that they should be annihilated? Maybe a fire, maybe fire from the sky or earthquake or the earth should eat them or they should be flooded? something should happen to them, because this happens to every messengers, this believers, fine. But Allah did not bring them punishment from the sky. He did not bring them punishment from underneath the earth. He did not afflict them with disease, What punishment were they given? They were the punishment against them, divine wrath against them, were the Sahaba.

00:13:01--> 00:13:30

The Sahaba Allah sent upon them the believers who who defeated them in battle and eventually conquered Makkah now when they conquered Mecca. Now Allah has overpowered them. And when Allah overpowers the disbeliever, what's supposed to happen? What happens in the case of new or Uppsala or offshore a when a law overpowers the disbeliever? what's supposed to happen? You die. So the the sort of the Sahaba the believers is on their necks. And then Allah says stop.

00:13:31--> 00:14:13

Has he ever said stop before? No. He says, Stop. Give them four months. Let them think about it. And in the meantime, if anybody comes to you and says I'll actually I never took you seriously, all these 23 years? I don't know. I was hanging out. I was, you know, busy. My PlayStation three. You know, I didn't really hear the message. So can you explain it to me over again? I you know, don't even say to him Where were you all this time? Should have been paying attention too late. No, no, no, no, we're in a huddle minimum sneakiness tharaka Jr, who had tyus McCallum Allah, if even now one of the machete keen comes to you, give him time until he gets to hear the speech of Allah, and

00:14:13--> 00:14:43

then don't hover over his face. So what's your decision? No, no, no. So my blue Mama, let him go to a safe place where he's not intimidated. Let him make his decision on his own. So Hon, Allah Has this ever happened before? This is a special mercy given to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that was never given to any messenger before him. This is special. And then on top of this in these four months, you have options if you believe all previous crimes forgiven. I've been telling you you're going to be overcome. I've been telling you.

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

I've been telling you that you know,

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

you will be overcome. I've been warning you and you didn't take it seriously. Now that it's happened now you should believe but even now think about if you believe all the previous record is white

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

Clean Slate, full immunity, your equal citizen, equal citizen. But if you don't want to believe that I'm not putting you under house arrest either but you know what you can do, you can just move.

00:15:13--> 00:15:37

You can move a note you won't be killed. You can just leave the punishment of the crimes you committed, you killed civilians, you kicked people out of their homes, you engaged in acts of aggression. And even then, even though you did all of these things, okay, you've got four months to either become Muslim and we won't forget, let bygones be bygones. Or you can leave and if you don't want to leave, then you better be ready to fight after four months.

00:15:38--> 00:16:18

I don't know what else to call this book, mercy. I don't know what else you call this. We have such a shallow reading of the CLR Can you when Alyssa is in the airplane now can go through rock metal in Ireland in rock metal, I mean, what nation was given this mercy, that there will be given an opportunity? This is an incredible gift of Allah xojo. Another gift of a large religious dimension is the Quran. We say the Quran is the final miracle to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was musasa given a miracle was the salvation I'm given a miracle was funny. They were given miracles too. So what's so great and abundant about the Quran, all of their miracles were only miracles While

00:16:18--> 00:16:59

they were there. After they died, those things were no longer miracles. They were only stories that can be narrated. In other words, somebody who saw Musa alayhis salaam, turned the staff into a snake can one day tell their child you know what I saw with my own eyes? And then that child will say, you know what, my grandpa, what's your grandfather told me, and they can pass it down. But the first one saw a miracle the rest of them heard what a story. And a story isn't a miracle. It's a story. You can believe it. And you can also watch this believe it but a miracle is something it's in your face. The messengers is the only miracle sallallahu alayhi wasallam that lives on and is as convincing as

00:16:59--> 00:17:40

it was when it was revealed. The Miracle lives on the proof that the Quran is the word of Allah the arguments of the Quran, the Quran is as valid today as it was then because because all the other messengers were given miracles for the eyes to see. But this messenger predominantly he was given a miracle for the ears to hear, and we still have ears we can hear the same exact message. So hon Allah, it's something incredible Allah gave His Messenger, then let's move forward. He gave him an animal fat, they go hand in hand, Allah gave his messenger justice, justice that the world had been hungry for the world had been hungry for it. And this is a mercy Allah gave his messenger. Some of

00:17:40--> 00:18:17

the hearts of those of you that are political science students run, learn about the oppression of dictatorships and different kinds of dynasties. Right, and even the oppression of religious rulership, the even you know, in American history in European history, especially in European history, we study about the oppression of the church against the people. And Allah azza wa jal brings, gives His Messenger a dean, by virtue of which you can, there is no such thing as a clergy, there is no such thing as a holy class of people, everybody can be put to question and if you are in disagreement about something for who do who, in Allah, He will surely take it back to the

00:18:17--> 00:18:38

Constitution. Everybody has a right to do it. There's no religious clergy that are above the law. No such thing. There are no holy people that can't be questioned. There is no grand sacred authority. Everybody's equal before the law, even someone guaranteed paradise like the Allahu anhu can be questioned by a woman in public. What are you wearing? Where'd you get that from? Would you pay for that?

00:18:39--> 00:19:12

He could be questioned like that in pub. That's justice. That's what you call justice. You know, and this was given to our messenger and we don't appreciate that today, the governments of the world and the people of the world are suffering from injustice. And this is the reason wherever the Muslims went and established the when they would have to leave the people will cry when you come back, because they didn't just bring religion with them. What did they bring with them? Justice, and today all the talk is about fighting even among Muslims. There is no talk about justice. We don't do justice in our homes, not in our neighborhoods, not in our massages, how are we going to bring

00:19:12--> 00:19:30

justice to the world, but this is a gift Eliza which gave his messenger some allowance and along with it victory. And each of these I'm giving you some bits of it, that you can appreciate for our time, just some aspects of it that you can appreciate for our time. We say Allah azza wa jal gave the surah Elijah and also llahi one foot right that's actually sort of coming up

00:19:31--> 00:19:59

a couple of weeks from now inshallah, right Allah guaranteed His Messenger victory. So Allah is part of the good he gave him. You know, there are other messengers that came 950 years no victory on the earth, except the believers had to escape and the town the world had to be destroyed. musala musante Santa Salam. So 70 plus times mentioned in the Quran, but even he at the end, he died in exile. But he saw he failed him. They failed him.

00:20:01--> 00:20:05

You know, and allies have told us not to be like the followers of Musa

00:20:06--> 00:20:39

Musa Don't be like the one who gave Musa pain, Elisa because they disappointed him. But Allah azzawajal gave this messenger victory. And I want to talk to you about that victory for a second. What's even miraculous about that victory? What's miraculous about that victory, you know, in the kinds of the kind of change that happened in Arabia, and which became international in how long 23 years, the prophets life is 63 years on the horizon. But his life as a messenger is 23 years. So the whatever change we're talking about that happened in the Arab world happening, how long, 23 years, 23 years,

00:20:40--> 00:21:24

has there ever been a change in the world that happened over the course of 20 330-343-5363 years? I don't care if you talk about 500 years, a change that changed the way people think, what people love, what people hate, how people dress, how they run their government, how they run their economics, how they get married, how they get divorced, how they go to the bathroom, what they eat, what they don't eat, what they say what they don't say, how they do business, how they take a loan, it changed every aspect of their life, and how long 23 years, 23 years, you know, in the world, those of you that are in high school, you take global history, and you learn about revolutions, you

00:21:24--> 00:21:56

learn about the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, you learn about the French Revolution in Europe, these revolutions were either political or economic. They didn't change the ethics of the people. They didn't change how people eat, and sleep and drink. They didn't change what people love and hate. They didn't change how people dress. Nothing else changed one big change over the top. And that's it. And even those changes were brought about by people who read the works of philosophers. And those philosophers lived decades before. I give you just one example, the Russian Revolution, the Communist Revolution, you know who the author of the Communist revolution is, it's Karl Marx,

00:21:57--> 00:22:01

Karl Marx. You know what Karl Marx is from. He's from Germany.

00:22:02--> 00:22:26

And he died 60 years before the Russian Revolution. The guy was a librarian. The guy was a writer, philosopher, he's sitting in a library writing his book he'd ever imagined people are going to be killing themselves over this. And 60 years after his death, there are people revolutionising our country right. Now, in other words, there's the historical formula, the philosopher, the philosopher have an idea is never on the battlefield.

00:22:27--> 00:22:52

Never. And the philosopher, every idea is not even himself a revolutionary, he's just a philosopher. He's not going out there to try to convince people to make changes. He's not doing just writing. He's just writing even the French Revolution. Voltaire and Rousseau, you read about this in global history? Right? these writers never saw the revolution, there was like almost a century before the revolution ever happened. In the case of Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, who is delivering the message and who's on the battlefield?

00:22:54--> 00:23:28

Can you imagine and who's in the front of the battle, who's delivering the message and who's being boycotted and being forced to live in a cave, who's being expelled from his house, he's not just standing in behind some podium and telling the people hope to march forward. He's the first to march forward when there's nobody standing behind him. Salalah anusandhan This has never happened in history. Ever. Ask your political science professor, ask your history professor. You know, I don't take I don't think we should take validation from non Muslims. You know, that famous ebook, the top 100. And they put us as number one, we boast about that. That's nothing to be proud of. It's not We

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

are proud enough of what Allah gave us. You know, that's enough for us, but that you know, what they acknowledge even from their secular point of view, from their secular point of view, they even know no such political, social, economic, moral, spiritual change has come at the individual and collective levels at the same time ever in human human history. There's a reason they put them as number one, they didn't have a choice. They didn't have a choice. There's no choice there's no second. So Allah gave his messenger victory like no other, like a book like no other and a victory like no other than Allah. So we just gave him so many honors. You know, Allah gives chuffed as

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

messengers and Allah is this part of alcocer? You know, Ibrahim alayhis, salaam made so much further Qibla when he was building the house of Allah, right, make the hearts of the people turn towards it. Right, that would be in a right

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

and metabo telling us He will

00:24:25--> 00:24:42

make this a place that is full of virtue and a place of peace he made to offer this house, but when Allah azza wa jal changed the Qibla from aleksa to elevated Mashallah, when he changed it, Allah gave his reasons in what the reasons were called Narada calabogie, coffee San

00:24:43--> 00:24:51

Fernando Valley and nakaka Latin Tada. We saw your face on the Lahore animus and we saw your face turn to the sky.

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

So we're changing the Qibla for you. No doubt about it. Fila new Ileana then we swear that

00:25:00--> 00:25:38

We are for sure changing the Qibla for you. Why? Because you looked at the sky. You didn't ask Allah. He didn't ask Allah. He didn't make Dora. He just had a sad look in his eyes and he looked at the sky and the ayah comes out look to trivialize change, are you happy? Bah Ha. So you will be pleased. The world's history has changed. Billions of people play pray in a different direction. Because of that event in human history. world events changed because of that event in human history. And the reason for that event, the messenger could have a smile on his face on the local r&d Center in Atlanta. What is this sculpture that we're talking about? It's an incredible thing to appreciate

00:25:38--> 00:25:59

what Allah has given his messenger Salallahu alaihe salam, we already talked about what to look at the clock. Then mahkamah machmood Asha sakkara buka nakoma muda. This special station Allah has given his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, another gift of the messenger to the messenger part of the culture is the believers that Allah gave him you know the believers on login.

00:26:01--> 00:26:40

Allah azza wa jal gave this man followers that are unparalleled in human no no leader ever had followers like these and Leon leaders leave behind monuments, statues, buildings, highways, roads flags, right they leave behind these things and as their as their historical accomplishment. What have you accomplished Well, I did this this this and I built this wall and I built this statue on this tower. What is it that the messenger left behind? What statues? What towers what highways what you know what university What do you leave behind? He left behind Sahaba to change the world. This is a gift of a lot as messenger Muhammad Rasul Allah when Latina Mara who should have been home,

00:26:41--> 00:27:12

then, on top of this, the gift of legacy is nothing of a light. You don't insult to Toba. Allah azza wa jal is disappointed with people who are having weak EMA there were strong Sahaba they were weak saboteurs. Some of them are weak. have we given some of them, some of them that are pretending to be Sahaba? But they're actually hypocrites. And Allah told them something. Of course they're supposed to help the messenger. But Allah told them in Latin Zulu, if you don't help him, Takotna Salah nassarawa Allah, Allah has already helped him. He doesn't need your help.

00:27:13--> 00:27:58

What a gift of a lot of him he did a lot I told him, the you know, the Holo sahaabah even if you don't help him, the cause will go on because Allah is help is already with him. Allah Subhana Allah, these are gifts again, almost done. Then Allah gave is the gift one of the great gifts Allah gave to this to this messenger. So I sent him as a gift to us. He made us his own money. So we are a gift to the messenger and the messenger is a gift to us. Some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, Waka valdichiana como matang wa. We made you a middle nation. Thus, the Taekwondo Shahada and an akuna Rasool Allah shahida Phil Atilla t Sakura. Norma, enough celaya Karana Rasul Allah Hi, Santa. Right, same ayah.

00:27:58--> 00:28:26

He mentioned the same thing, where he mentioned very that we are in Omar he mentioned that he is the messenger solution, because we are the messenger of We Are The owner of that messenger. And he made up for this oma, he, you know, he told us he hopes to be the one of the most following on the Day of Resurrection. And the more following he has, the more has mentioned is made, the more the higher the other gift of allies fulfill what a foreigner like at the clock. Right? He commanded the believers to have lots of children, by the way, those of you who've been avoiding it,

00:28:27--> 00:29:05

you know, because he said on the day of Jim, I hope to be of the most followers, we should fulfill the out of love of the messenger, we should have kids Salalah out of love of that man. So then, of course, I'll give him his family has blended family and the family enjoys a noble status in the oma. So we say Allahumma salli ala Muhammad Anwar Allah, Allah Mohammed in the family of the Prophet is a gift given to him or her son. And then there's the shefa on the Day of Judgment, where every messenger people will go to this profit and that profit and that profit and they will say, enough's enough. See Me, me. Don't come to me. Don't come to me. And on that day, the only act the only exit,

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

the only door open is that of Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, this is huge. This is huge on the Day of Judgment, there is no greater gift given to this oma and no greater honor that, you know, everybody's worried about themselves. Everybody, the mother drops the baby. The guy says take my whole family put them in hell forget my family, my entire zip code. You know, not even my zip code woman fill out the Jimmy G. Take everybody in the earth. Let them go, let me be saved. On that day. This man Salallahu alaihe salam comes and says no, this one's with me.

00:29:41--> 00:30:00

There are narrations in which people are being dragged into hell and the messengers pulling them and the Sahaba the angels snatch them away. Right and the message is trying to pull the people away from the law. This is the authority to do that on the Day of Judgment even imagine that has been given to our messenger sallallahu wasallam. I mentioned

00:30:00--> 00:30:25

In this before in the law, what my daughter who is a Luna nebby? What an amazing gift that Allah no doubt and His Prophet and and the angels are sending prayers upon the messenger the Prophet sallallahu said them, you know the gifts of the gifts of Allah is even how Allah calls him. Even how Allah calls him. He doesn't call him Yeah, Mohammed. Yeah. He says, Yeah, Adam was going under was ojochal Jana.

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

He says, yeah.

00:30:28--> 00:30:49

He says, Yeah, he said Nutella. ficarra Pharaoh Kalia. Yeah Musa in any Allah, Allah tala decree. He has a career in ANOVA Sudoku lemonis muya. profits are called by their names, but a lot turns to His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he says yeah, you hanabi Yeah, you have assumed. Yeah, you have Muslim men. Yeah, you

00:30:50--> 00:31:12

look at the honor luggages as messengers of Allah harneys for them. And even when he mentions his name in Quran, he says Rasool Muhammadan rasul Allah Allah Xena, ma Makana Mohammed Al Abadi. Marriage aliko Moroccan rasulillah hatami Navi Mumbai Sharon VIERA su Lin. Yeah, Tim embarrass Mohammad. Right? Wa Muhammadan rasul Allah,

00:31:13--> 00:31:36

Ron, there's only one place in the Quran, where Allah does not mention Massoud next to Mohammed, and that's in Surah. Mohammed, where he didn't highlight the fact that he's a messenger. He just highlighted him for who he is even despite the messenger ship, just himself, and even in that I mentioned revelation, which makes it clear that he's a messenger when the Xena Amanullah middle Sally had, well I'm a newbie Mendoza, Allah, Mohammed in or what have

00:31:38--> 00:32:17

you know, Pamela, what has been sent down upon Mohammed calling him a messenger anyway, referring to the revolution anyway, so Allah Allah who said them, it's an incredible thing, the five prayers the five prayers that were given to the messenger RNA sotto Salaam are in and of themselves a gift, they themselves are a gift. Then in addition to this earlier Mr. Almighty cambia. When he saw him, he gave it Allah gave a gift to His Messenger in his own mind, he gave this almost scholars that he himself said my scholars, the scholars of my oma, are the equivalent of or they are the likeness of the NBA of any slave. So hard Allah, what he gave the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Were

00:32:17--> 00:32:52

almost done. They pseudo Quran, Allah gave this messenger a message that is easy to memorize, easy to remember. And here's another contemporary issue that needs our attention. I'll be done in less than 10 minutes inshallah. They should they should look around, and then what a shallow shallow air and that would be the last one. The facilitation of the Quran. Eliminate the Quran easy on the people to memorize. Last just last week, I was in a conversation with an orientalist scholar, non Muslim Islamic Studies scholar, and their biggest thing I don't know if you saw this documentary, I think it was on the Discovery Channel, if I'm not mistaken, on the Quran, and they talked about the

00:32:52--> 00:33:28

Quran is not actually preserved. And it's all these different parchments. And they found this other version of it the Dead Sea Scrolls, right? And it's missing some Surahs and all of this kind of stuff. Is the Quran really what it was then? Or is this just, you know, a myth that the Quran we have now is the same as then, let me tell you something about the western textual criticism of the Quran. These people are incredibly smart at pulling off scams, and they sell a scam really well. And if you don't know the scam, you'll say, Oh, my God makes sense. He's got a PhD must be telling the truth. It's on TV. How can that be wrong? Right? That's our standard at this point, the level of

00:33:28--> 00:34:07

intellectual depth on my house, right? I saw this documentary and it shocked my man. Seriously, it should have made you laugh. It should have made you laugh. When somebody tries to spit at the sun, it comes back on their own face. That's what they did. They spit on their own face. Let me tell you something about this in the West, but I'll start very logically, because this is again, a very important concept for all of us to have. That gives us confidence. Indeed, when you want to preserve a document. There are two ways written archive and oral tradition. There are only two ways of preserving a document historically, what are they again, written archive or oral tradition? written

00:34:07--> 00:34:20

archive means you write it down. oral tradition means you memorize it and make somebody else memorize it and make somebody else memorize it. And that's how it's passed out. Okay. According to Western standards and logical standards, which of these is a safer? Do you know?

00:34:21--> 00:34:37

written archive written archive is safer. Why is it safer even though both have criticisms? If I start at that corner? I say to one brother, brother, I'm going to whisper something in your ear. I want you to whisper it to the next person. I whisper in his ear. Akhmad punched Corinne

00:34:39--> 00:34:49

Okay, I might punch him in the stomach. That's all I told him. But punch creaminess summit. he whispers it to the next brother. Then the next brother and the next brother whispers it to the next and the next. By the time we get over there.

00:34:50--> 00:34:55

Mud garden. Kareem stomach out, burned his house down and then blew up the neighborhood.

00:34:56--> 00:34:57

Okay.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

Every person at

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

1%

00:35:02--> 00:35:37

and by the time you go through 500 people how much has been added 500% this is an error of oral communication. It's a problem of oral communication. Okay? Even if you change one word, and the next change changes just one word, those one words can add up. They can add up. So the argument in western criticism is an oral tradition goes through lots of changes. Logical, very logical. Okay, let's keep that in the back of your mind. Now come to written tradition. We did they didn't have Xerox back then. They didn't have scanners back then either. So if you have a book, and you wrote it out, the only way to duplicate it is what?

00:35:38--> 00:35:47

Write another one? If you are an is a handwritten or machine written, handwritten, and in handwritten archives, is it possible you made a mistake?

00:35:48--> 00:36:00

It's possible. And then there's this book has one mistake, and then this book with one mistake went and it got duplicated? Is it possible another mistake will happen? as possible? Right? These are possibilities. And these guys love talking about possibilities? Let me tell you,

00:36:01--> 00:36:26

right, so now they say okay, and by the way, in the West, when they talk about historical documents, or do they pride themselves over oral traditions or written traditions in the West, written traditions, so their understanding of something properly documented, what has to be what? written? So they come to the Quran with the understanding that the only way the Quran was preserved is by what? Writing by writing.

00:36:27--> 00:36:28

Now,

00:36:29--> 00:36:51

if we go by there, let's agree with their argument for in the beginning, let's agree with their argument. Okay? If we go by their argument, if the Quran was memorized, and then Person A helped person be memorized, but Person B memorized it a little bit differently. And then they went and taught person C, and they memorized also a little bit differently over time, would you have less variation? Or would you have more variation,

00:36:52--> 00:37:24

you would have more variation. And if the Quran is written down, and then it goes to another town, another copy another copy, is it possible variations will also increase? This is a historical fact, if you're going to especially not even stay in the same town. They're not even on the same continent. And there's no one way flights back then either. So you're months and months and months apart. And you can't even make a phone call and say, No, you've got the wrong version. If you want to get the information to them, you've got the wrong version, you're going to be traveling for six months, and in those six months, it may have spread spread even more. In other words, if there is

00:37:24--> 00:38:07

one variation, it can become 10,000 variations without the ability to control the information you understand. And how long has this spreading of information been going on 1400 years plus. In other words, by going purely by Western standards, we should have so many versions of the Quran, they should be in the millions. No two people can probably have the same car and if we go by their standards, now come to our time. You take a kid who memorize Quran in Jang Province, China, and then you take him memorize Quran in Somalia, and you take a kid who memorized score on an IQ a and they're hanging out together one day, and one is reciting Bukhara and the one speaks Chinese one

00:38:07--> 00:38:15

speaks Somali right? one speaks English they can't talk to each other but they recite one's reciting Bukhara can the other one correct him?

00:38:16--> 00:38:49

They can. The fact that the Quran was primarily preserved by making it easy to remember, there is no document in human history that was predominantly protected by memorization. memorization is a way to create variation. But in the Quran case, memorization became a means by which to create unity and the lot the lack of variation what is usually associated with too much variation now became no variation at all. And their only answer to that is there must be some conspiracy by which they stopped all these other versions for coming out.

00:38:52--> 00:39:13

Can you help me is has there been any other conspiracy where there's no leaks? No leak millions of people from different civilizations memorizing the same exact thing. And a lot of saying miraculously, while aka Dr. Cernan or analytical we no doubt made the Quran easy for remembrance and for Likud includes memorization.

00:39:14--> 00:39:38

eliminated miraculously easy for memorization, tell me under any other document that has this kind of preservation. And if they say we don't know if the class preservation is intact, let's put it to the test. Let's put bring it make a giant vault, put all the copies of Quran in there, get rid of them. How long before in Richardson we come up with a new copy of on through our her father in the zip code. We don't even have to go to the zip code you can cut off our internet access and phone line.

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

And how long before they come up with another Bible?

00:39:43--> 00:39:57

Think about even another copy of the United States Constitution. Let's just do that. That's not even 1000s of years old. That's a couple of 100 years old. Let's just take it away. And let's see if they can come up with it. Word for word. Let's see how long that takes them and how long it takes us to call with hold on again.

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

Allah says he preserved it in

00:40:00--> 00:40:20

National National decra he preserved it in a way even if you try to corrupt it, they were attempts to make soudal they republish it, they publish our copies, of course Hold on. I think it's called that's missing some solos. They say it's the politically incorrect Sooners are taken out. And the Muslims are so how dare they don't have to worry. It's okay for the guy to do

00:40:21--> 00:40:58

what they couldn't do for the last 1400 years but Allah said he protected His Word. You think these jokers are gonna sell two [email protected] and compete with Quran? Are you kidding me? There's nothing to worry about. Because we're not as we're not responsible for guarding this book in new Nazanin crower in Allahu Allah, Hafiz Boone, it is only we who are taking responsibility of guarding this book, there's a lot of responsibility. And he made it in a way that you just the only way to get rid of Quran is to wipe out the entire population of Muslims from the face of the earth simultaneously. That's the only way to get rid of one fifth, one fourth of the Moore's population.

00:40:58--> 00:41:40

That's the only way to get rid of Quran. In other words, over time, documents become less viable, less valid. And this is the only text that only becomes more valid, you know, the Biblical Studies. But in biblical studies, did you know that in most Bible scholars that are doing PhDs from universities here, Bible scholars, they no longer believe that the Bible is historically accurate. They don't believe in read the talks by Professor Gerald Dirks. On our listen to his interview on brother Eddie showed the deen show.com listen to it. He's got a master's degree in divinity. This is a gift of a lot to the messenger. You couldn't get rid of this message if you tried. Not if you try

00:41:40--> 00:42:20

it, you know he used to be so worried. Am I gonna forget the ayah he's to be so worried. And he's a Russian tongue natto Holic mainly sanika Nita jalebi, Angela told them in Elena, Java, and we've taken it upon ourselves to gather it, and to have it communicated have it recited, look how Allah took that responsibility away from the messenger took it off his shoulders and left the dock. He took it off his shoulders, some of the law or the use of them. These are from the good the gifts Allah azza wa jal has given him. The last point I will make for you is the following. After we list all these things that come under COPPA, and Allah has given those to him. How's he supposed to thank

00:42:20--> 00:42:21

Allah?

00:42:22--> 00:43:01

You know, you can only thank the thanks, the reaction should be in accordance with the action. How do you take these infinite gifts? And how can you ever respond? I don't know what I don't even know where to begin. You know, when somebody does a huge favor to you, you say, I don't even know what I don't even know what to say. You're at a loss. I don't even know what I can do for you, I can never repay you. Right. When we when we appreciate what Allah has given his messenger sallallahu wasallam. We, the thing that comes to mind is how is he How is he to repay this? What is it? What can I expect from him now? He can come up with anything. So Allah gives it to him for Sally.

00:43:02--> 00:43:12

Pray, make Salah the first act of gratitude to Allah is Allah. The first act of God he didn't say wish god

00:43:13--> 00:43:17

you know, I've given you a lot. So thank me. Watch Cora buck. No.

00:43:18--> 00:43:53

praise your mouth. Nope. Suddenly Arabic. Pray Dear Master and then sacrifice Sunday. And by the way, this is the act of Ibrahim alayhis salam. prayer and sacrifice is the legacy of Ibrahim alayhis salam and Allah azza wa jal tell it says about him Shakira Lee and army he was grateful to the favors Allah had given him. And how will they positively show that gratitude, prayer and sacrifice, prayer and sacrifice and this is what the messenger is told. This is to give us a new appreciation in sha Allah, of these cardiovascular exercises we do five times a day,

00:43:54--> 00:44:30

what they actually mean to Allah, what their value is to Allah. On the one hand, he put all Gotham on the other hand, he puts Allah Subhana Allah, what a gift the Salah is to the oma, what a gift this is what a huge you know means by which we can make our case before the day of judgment. The first question to be asked to salon there's a reason. There's a reason for that. May Allah azza wa jal give us an appreciation of his word, Allah azza wa jal removed from us an incorrect understanding of his word, and not only should he that we beg him to have a correct understanding of it, but in addition that we are able to live by it. And that is this the study of Quran the

00:44:30--> 00:44:46

memorization of it, the proper recitation of it, the acting upon it, all of this is a case of in our favor on the day of judgment and not a case against us about a calamity welcome, Hakeem when in fact anyway, er can be it with the king was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
