Channel: Nouman Ali Khan
Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan acquaints us with the Qur’an being an incredible literature from many different angles. We can study this subject from many different points of view.
The first of the viewpoints that is delved upon is precision in word choice or accurate word choice. The believer knows that the Qur’an is the speech of Allah. The speech of a human being is not necessarily calculated down to the word, but the speech of Allah is perfect because it comes from a source that is perfect. And that is illustrated with hundreds of thousands of examples in the Qur’an.
An interesting comparison is drawn from two words – Makkah and Bakkah. They both occur once in the Qur’an: once in the Qur’an in Surat Muhammad wherein Allah SWT uses the word Makkah and the word Bakkah. What is the purpose of this? Listen intently.
Allah’s speaks about tranquility often in the Quran. The Arabic word for tranquility is “As-Sakeenah”. “He is the one who sent tranquility into the hearts of the believers, he sent it into the hearts of the believers. “ But in Suratu-l-Fath and Surat-At Tawba, Allah says: “He sent tranquility upon them.” In one place he says in the same Surah He sent tranquility inside their hearts; in another, He says he’s sent the tranquility upon them. What is the meaning of this?
The Qur’an is remarkable, stunning, mesmerizing literature to which there can never be any comparison even as we consider having an impact not just from a religious point of view but even from a psychological point of view. One can not be affected by anything one would ever listen or read as one will be by the Qur’an.`
The Quran is incredible literature, incredible literature from many, many different angles, you can study this subject from many different points of view. Actually, I'm working on a seminar that's launching in February dedicated to each angle, each perspective from which we can study and appreciate the the eloquence and the precision and beauty of the Quran, I'm only going to present probably three dimensions to you today, of the 20 or so that I've compiled. As far as these three dimensions what I'll try to present to you today in sha Allah, and the first of them is precision in word choice, or accurate word choice. When you and I speak, we sort of we put words together, but we
don't necessarily give too much thought to each and every word we say. The central, you know, focus, when we communicate, isn't the words, it's the actual idea.
When you sit down and write something, though, then what do you do you write something? And you say, No, I want to edit it, I want to say it better. And you go back and you change a word or two, or you reorganize your sentence, right? So writing is way more careful than what and speaking speaking is spontaneous, it's on the spot. There's no time to edit your words, it just comes out. But writing is very thought well thought out. Because there's an editorial process. Now, we already said that the disbeliever says that the Quran is the speech of Muhammad, while the believer knows that it's the speech of Allah.
The speech of a human being is not necessarily calculated down to the word. It's not calculated down to the word, but the speech of Allah is perfect. Because it comes from a source that is perfect. And that is illustrated with hundreds of 1000s of examples in the Quran. This is a subject in and of itself, precision of words in the Quran. It's a subject in and of itself. I'll give you some very brief examples.
Sure, I know he said um, you know, he's a messenger right? Okay. Now as a messenger RNA he said um, he has mentioned numerous times in the Quran.
Allah azza wa jal says to us what Allah Medina Ha ha, I'm sure Eva
Tamati and we sent their brother shipe. We sent their brother sure right. Now what I want to tell you is
what what is the name of the nation to which he belonged.
Medina Medina is the name of two things at the same time you got to remember this, okay? Medina is two things. Medina is the name of a place and it's the name of a people.
The people are called meridian and the place is also called Medea. And Allah says to meridian v center brother shrine
in Surah, to Shara Shara surah number 26. Allah azza wa jal gives us the stories of different prophets.
He says is called a home of who home Lutheran is called Allahumma, whom polygon is called a home a home houden is called a home a home new often, when they're rather new said to them, when their brother new said to them such as his nation, the next story goes to another prophet when their brother saw they said to them, his own nation, then it goes to hood when their brotherhood said to them, then when their brother psilectures salia, new hood, Elisa Lam and look for them, their brother, their brother, their brother, their brother, the fifth one mentioned his tribe.
Allah says when sure he said to them,
he just says if Allah Allahu schreiben once you he says to them, with all the other prophets in that very soon What did he say?
their brother knew their brother sorry, their brother and their brotherhood, but when it came to share it he said,
Sure, no brother. What's really interesting is other places in the Quran Allah says, What Allah Medina like I told you a llama Deanna aha home Schreiber to Moravian especially we sent their brother schreib
in the surah, in which everybody was declared the brother of their nation, you would expect that when sure Ava's turn comes What are you going to see their brother, but the word brothers taken out? It's the only one that's been taken out, everybody else retained. And what we find that's really interesting is right before remember the nation to which he was sent, what was their name? madeon. They have another name called as Hubble ICA. So longer name as Hubble ICANN is the people of ICA ICA was a giant tree that they used to worship. The name of that tree was acre. So they were known by their religious name to their religious identity was the people of acre.
The fact that he was born in Medina that he belonged to the city of Medina and that his race was a median race, right one of the Arabs, because of that by race and by region, he is their brother. So Allah says to me at the end, we sent their brother, shrine. But when it comes when Allah mentions them, not as the people of Medina, but the people of what an acre that tree, Allah is speaking to them with their religious identity, and when it comes to their religion is either rather
No. So when Allah mentions their religion, he says when sure he said to them, no, rather
by removing the brother from that context, in particular, what has been highlighted, what's been highlighted is there is no brotherhood when it comes to conflict in then that's that goes away. It's very, very profound, precise usage, because what we are told to expect case after case after cases with the Shahada is a home, a home, a home, a home, a home, and all of a sudden the addition of a phone precision, and you could see why that precision took place. This is the first small example. Let's look at another example. You know that both the names you see on the screen yesterday and Medina
are the names of the same city. Sure. The Quran speaks about the city of Medina with the word Medina many times at least four citations I put on the screen for you.
But it only uses yesterday once
yesterday was used only in Salazar, that's it. There's no other place where yesterday was used in the Quran. By the way, both are names of Medina. So you could argue from the devil's advocate point of view, hey, they mean the same thing right? So why don't I just changed yesterday to what Medina Why don't I change Medina to yesterday if you guys keep talking about Quran is perfect and Trickett word choice. You guys know too that yesterday bin Medina is the same thing. So why not put one in the other space? What's the big deal? What difference does it make? This is a study more so of history. Before the Prophet arrived sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Medina, what was his name? Yes,
sir. After he came to the city, he was unanimously declared the leader of that city and then city was coined Medina to be the city of
the Prophet for short. The city. Medina is short for what? The city of the Prophet because literally Medina means what? The city? So Medina his nickname is Medina actually that's the nickname The actual name is yesterday, or you can think of it like this. Before the Prophet came it was yesterday after he came it is Medina.
But what's interesting is total abzorb surah. Number 33 actually uses Medina and uses yathrib same surah.
And what's up what's interesting on top of that is SoTL azova madonie surah. What do you know about whether this was
what was the prophet in Mogadishu last season? He was in Medina. So already the city should have been called what? Medina but we see the word Yes. And if you see the riddle here, right. Now here's the thing.
Medina was short for Medina to beat city of the prophet SAW my son. When Medina was surrounded by enemy forces. Some Jewish tribes got together, they came and they convinced the courage to come back and rally after the loss of a hug. They went around and made alliances with smaller tribes and turned it into a massive army that surrounded the entire city of Medina, the city of Medina was being held hostage for weeks on end.
This scary situation was given worsened, because people on the inside there were people on the inside that were Muslims, but some of them were only Muslim by name. And actually there weren't wasn't really a man in their hearts. What's that group called?
monaka cooinda. hypocrites right? Now, these some of these hypocrites before the Prophet came sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were the leaders of what city.
They were the leaders of yesterday, when the Prophet came, they had to give up their positions. They have to give up their leadership because now who's the leader? By default, Muhammad SAW them when they were surrounded. They saw it as an opportunity
to rally the forces and say look what hit what his leadership got us into. Right? So they say,
Lambo Kamala Khan, they said oh people of yesterday there's no place left for you. 5g Oh, let's go back. Go back to what? Let's go back to making it yesterday of again. Let's go back to the way things were before the prophets. I saw them had leadership by using the word
Yesterday you know what they exposed their true allegiance? Because if they acknowledged the messenger as their leader sallallahu alayhi wasallam what word would they have used? Medina.
So just by using that word, a lot caught their word, you know, exposed it in the Koran. And what we learned from that is their allegiances, their aspirations were oh one day it'll be back to yesterday. Again, it won't be in Medina anymore. This becomes even more evident more clear, clearer when we go to other places. So someone owns a salon dedicated to
papercutz. Now the sewer dedicated to hypocrites is interesting. It begins with the hypocrites going out of their way to show allegiance to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They go out of their way to show allegiance to the suit Allah sallallahu sallam, either Jamuna horn, or Luna shadow in Kala Rasulullah. When the hypocrites come to you, whenever they come to you, they say, Oh, we bear witness, no doubt you are certainly the Messenger of Allah. Now, the Muslim doesn't have to say that to the messenger every time only when he converts. Right? When he accepts it, and he says it otherwise he knows he's the Messenger of Allah. But if you're trying to compensate for something
you're feeling on the inside, like a child who says I didn't do it, by the way. And you said What did you not do? Right? There's a guilty conscience that speaks it's the guilty conscience that makes them say we really believe you're the Messenger of Allah and in that surah to show their allegiance on the outside. They said the Elijah Anna Elaine Medina, the agenda.
Right, they said When we returned to Medina, because they were trying to show their allegiance, but when it came to desperate times in Switzerland, the wrong word came out of their mouth, and their true legions were exposed. Another interesting comparison, maca, and Baca Have you heard these two names of Macau before? They both occur once in the Quran? Once in the Quran, insert Muhammad Muhammad. Allah azza wa jal uses the word maka, another time he uses the word Baca now historically speaking, they are both names of the same city, Makkah. Some have argued that Baca was the first name and Mecca is the leader name. More accurately though linguists have argued that NACA is the
name and Baca is the nickname maca is the name and Baca is the nickname it comes from black which is an Arabic verb, it means to be crowded, it means to have lots of crowd and you know congestion of traffic. Okay, and is there harm in modern Arabic views Okay. Now
when Baca is used in Surah Allah and run with a ban
originating from the word crowd, the very few IR that follow our IR of hedge when he left here and analyse hedge jailbait what comes with hedge
crowd, so what's the better word in that context?
But when there's no mention of hedging, sudo Muhammad you go back to normal and what where do you use maca? So how even this small detail you and I would say merkaba, same thing, interchangeable. They're the same word. But the level of precision in the fronds words is unparalleled. Human beings can think at that level when they speak. They can't think at that level. It's we're not at that level of accuracy. So one thing we learned from Quran is how careful we need to be with our tongues. Right? This is the sun novel Lara's origin. He speaks in very, very, very precise even to the minutus detail.
Another interesting comparison, we go back to Switzerland.
This you may have heard before
magia de la hora de la julene, mcilvain, E Fi jiofi.
And the fourth iOS has a lot did not put two hearts inside of any man whatsoever.
But now listen carefully. Why am I not joking? Come? You know what means?
spouses, it's fine and speaking to men from the beginning of the means wives, because the beginning of the eyes talking to men, spouses here means wives, wives or women.
Allah, Allah, Allah, Maha Chico, Noma Hartman's mothers, women, right?
The rest of the ayah is dealing with women.
But the beginning of the ayah Allah says Allah did not put two hearts inside of any man nyjah Allahu Li, Rosalyn, the ayah has men and women both in it. So I would guess we could say Allah did not put two hearts inside of any human being. Because if you say human being who does it include? Men and women, both, but if you say man, it only includes men. This is so because the Quran is literal, literally accurate and figuratively accurate. Of course, when Allah says Allah didn't put two hearts inside of any men, he's not being literal. The idea is to
intentions at the same time, Mr. Cofer at the same time, right imagine the fact at the same time hypocrisy and faith can't coexist one or the other faith or belief or disbelief they can't coexist one or the other. certainty and doubt can coexist one or the other. So the figurative expression is a lie did not put two hearts inside of and you men, but if you take it literally is it true literally to write, but for women they can get pregnant
and when they get pregnant, how many hearts can be inside them?
you could have argued literally Hey, what about women? They might have two hearts at some point.
But even that criticism from the literary literary you know, literal point of view isn't even possible. Masha Allah Julio, Rosalyn medical benefi jiofi supanova.
Another one. I didn't put Arabic on the screen on purpose because I don't want you to think that you can appreciate this subject only by Arabic. I really want to water this down to English and Shalom. As much as possible.
Allah speaks about tranquility often the Arabic word for tranquility is a subpoena a subpoena?
Allah azza wa jal says who Allah de Angela Sakina fie kulu bill meaning he is the one who sent tranquility into the hearts of the believers. He sent it into the hearts of the believers. But then several times in certain fat and Soto but also
for Angela for Angela Sakina. Who Allah Rasool E. Well, meaning who Alevi Angela, actually, for Anima Matthew boo boo him for Angela Sakina de la him, la him, he sent tranquility upon them. In one place, he says in the same spirit, he said tranquility inside their hearts. In another he says he sent tranquility upon them. Now tranquility inside your hearts tranquility upon you. It's the same idea essentially, but not close enough. This is this would be undermining the precision of the Quran. You see the hearts basically in the Quran, Allah speaks of two negative sentiments there are many, but two central negative sentiments in the hearts. Now hopefully,
there's fear in the heart. And there's grief in the heart of the negative emotions that you have negative emotions that you have, they stem from one of two things, either they stem from fear, or they stem from grief. These are the two main negative anger can result from grief, and go get worse right. And fear leads to many other diseases like hypocrisy can be can be a source, the source of it can be fear. So now these two feelings are in Arabic literature and poetry even before Islam.
The fear the anger is described as something that rages inside your heart.
And it's something that doesn't go away. It stays like if you're mad at your friend for saying something to you, you're not just mad at them at that time when they said it to you. You're mad at them every time you see their face.
It's in your heart.
It didn't just overcome you at that time it got installed.
So you have to uninstalls
which means you have to go we're inside the hearts the beginning of superfetch the Muslims have traveled all the way from Medina to go make Hajj. Did they get to make hydrophobia? No. So what's in the hearts?
We came all this way. If you study this healer, you'll find a lot of frustration and even the tongues of the believers. Right. So where was the tranquility needed?
Inside the hearts inside the hearts, but fear. And even in Arabic imagery, you find this in sharing. Fear is something felt on the skin. Fear is something felt in your entire body. It's shivers. Fear is something that overwhelms it comes over your heart. Instead of in your heart, it is over your heart and it doesn't linger. When it's inside your heart. It doesn't get out until you go in and get it out. But when it's over your heart as soon as the scary situations over what happens, you're back to normal. Your kids are playing around, there's almost all of a sudden there's thunder. Kids get scared. thunders over the guy playing again. Right? That's how we are you hear something scary? Are
you in a scary situation as soon as that situation is over, you're back to normal. The fear doesn't come back necessarily.
But with anger You don't have to be you know, somebody doesn't have to upset you for you to be get angry again. It's the old anger that can come back for no other reason. You understand. So now since the anger or the fear overcomes you, what has to overcome you to counter it. tranquility. So Allah in this in this situations wherever Sakina has mentioned with Allah changes include tranquility sent down upon
Like when the messenger say Salaam was indicated with a boba Casa de Colombia Allahu anhu. And the the investigators were looking for them trying to find them and kill them. This was a situation of anger or fear. This was a situation of fear so less than tranquility upon them. And even when the kuffar at the end of subtle, you know, they had gotten together hamidah helia they got together in this gang mentality to gang up against the Muslims and go fight them. This was an intimidating situation because the Muslims were barely armed, unless and tranquility upon them. When Allah azza wa jal promised that they will enter the city of Mecca peacefully.
haram insha Allah who I mean, you will enter it peacefully. Because if you enter a piece of meat, and by the way not to have food, you're not going to be afraid of anything, denying the fear. And in that situation, he said, tranquility upon upon them. So there's tranquility inside, and this tranquility upon if you just read it casually, you'll say hey, it's the same thing. But if you appreciate the profound accuracy of words, down to the preposition from into upon, that's just prepositions. Even that is incredibly accurate. This is one of my favorites.
The next one
Valley can kitahara zero
Buffy many people know that i right. Now, what does that mean? Anybody know?
That radical kita that book? That book? Now when I say this, as opposed to saying that which one is closer?
Is this book closer or that book closer? This book is closer? This book is closer. That book is far away. Because that appointing word value guys for distance. But when something is closer you don't say that you say this what's interesting in the Quran is you find most we find that book, but for the most part multiple, multiple, multiple instances. I'm not saying that Koran but this Quran has
so when Allah uses book, of course he's talking about the Quran, right?
But he puts it far away. When he talks about Quran What does he do?
Close? Well, we'll come to the third one last but at least for now, that comparison of the top two that book versus this Quran, you see the word book in Arabic is Kitab. The origin of which is catappa, yaku. To write, it comes from, to write the actual meaning of Kitab is that which is documented that which is extra or written. Now, where is the Quran written?
Where is it written? Was it already written when it was being revealed? Oh,
no, no, no, no, no. In its complete form, was it already in existence With who?
So the actual book is where? near or far?
So it's appropriate to say that book because that's where it's written. The word book in Arabic has to do with writing. Now the word Koran comes from Cora Jaco, one of the origins of for honest Cora Jaco to recite to read, where's the reading taking place over here, so what's more appropriate this recital holla and then in one instance Allah says have Kitab one this is a book these are the theories broken because now book is being used with one word this close but he adds Hideki top one and now we sent it down
this is a book that we sent down so even when you use this he added it didn't come from here it's from there. Because the implied you know, what can be alluded when you say this is that the origin is here. You can you can you know that you know you can stretch the meaning further and say oh, you said this book meaning your order here somewhere. So now Allah azza wa jal prevents that possible thought from even occurring by saying that book that book versus this Quran hasn't gone on we don't see that. We see this quote on in the books panela
another stellar example inshallah tada
the two ions are Baqarah and Abraham This is the DA of Abraham Ali Salaam
Abidjan had a better than Amina and circle back Allah My Lord make this a peaceful city My Lord make this a peaceful city
or beach I'll have balada Amina Lord make this city peaceful. Now the English is very similar to the Arabic here and as far as the meaning make this a peaceful city versus what make the city peaceful.
You would think it's the same law almost even in the Arabic there's a different system
Alif Lam has a Belgian Armenian and balada Amina small difference. But actually before Mecca was a city, because the city is what Mecca, right? Everybody knows that before Mecca was a city, he made $1 to turn it into a city and to turn it into a peaceful city. So the first da
da boliden aminian is when he had not even seen the city turn into a city yet, and the hours to turn it into a city that happens to be peaceful. When he came back into his salon to the city, and it was already a city. He modified his the law and said what make this city which already exists, make it peaceful, say
very precise, very precise wording. Now on top of this, I want to share with you what is the further component what are the further components of this dot
OBJ file has a ballad an eminent make this a peaceful city. What are the requirements of peace in a city?
What are the is peace? The only thing you look for in a city? No, if there are no jobs, you can't stay there. You can't make any money. There's lots of police protection, the society is gonna fall apart anyway because people can't survive. So in the first dollar, he made a complete dollar for a establishment of a healthy sustainable city. He said, Hold on
a minute, aminian wurzbach Allahumma thammarat provided citizens from all kinds of fruit, make sure that they are taken care of they have provisions. So he made the law for the peace of a city and the prosperity of that city. You know the English expression peace and prosperity, right? in political science 101 you're gonna learn that if you have peace and no prosperity, the society falls. And if you have prosperity and no peace, the society falls What do you need for a society to sustain itself? Peace and prosperity? This is why at the end of Quran you find solace in a few Quraysh. Right. That's a surah about the prosperity of the city. Then we have
an answer like a lot of buka viewers have been feeling certain feelings about what the prosperity of the city or the safety of the city, the safety of the city, they go hand in hand. Once you are dedicated to its prosperity, the other dedicated to peace, you need both these things. So when he made the either his city come into being he made all these two things, man, and I mean, humbler, he was yummy. Whoever believes in a line the last day provide them with all kinds of fruits. I won't go further into his daughter there. But if you come to the bottom one wasn't already a CD now. Yeah, it was already been provided for that was taken care of. He didn't want to ask for that again, because
it was already there. So he asked for something else, which nobody robinia And nevertheless, law protect me and my children prevent us that we may end up falling into the worship of idols prevents us from falling into the worship of idols. Because now when a city is peaceful, and it's safe, necessarily what might happen is corruption. When life is good, you tend to party
and the worst kind of parting the shadow gets you into is what ship ship he's he sees is the farsightedness of Ibrahim Ali Salaam. So when he came back to the city his law was Don't let this be a place of idol worship. prevent me and my children from worshipping idols Subhana Allah Alayhi Salaam the genius of that man
the next case
the Arabic word Emma, Emma
in isolation it means woman
but as a modaf and those of you that know Arabic Noah madatha those of you that don't
Shame on you know, I'm kidding. learn Arabic inshallah. It's easy.
Yes, before a very good somebody was paying attention to my class. So the modaf when he curses baldauf it means wife. Why? in law, another word for wife that's using the Quran is actually more appropriate for spouse, zilch. Zilch. Both words are used. Now we find imperata know when the wife of no imbricata looting the wife of who
one or two who
were using who's whose wife is that?
I will have you guys know that right? But you don't I mean, I have been with them. That's what I'll be fine mama to who? his wife, his wife. So so far we have the wife of new good woman or bad woman.
She's not good. No.
Some pretty bad lady.
Wife of loot bed. Wife of Abu lahab
terrible Yeah, pretty bad.
Morocco for Mr. Zakaria sends an angel to Korea says you're gonna have a son and he says, and nakoula what kind of American Nikola mechanic at MIT, his wife good or bad? Great.
MRI is used for women that aren't very good and also use for women that are good. So we can say that Emma is used only for bad women by the way, Mr. Atul Aziz, the wife of the minister,
the minister in Surah, Yusuf
Huh, good lady, bad lady, bad person, the wife of Freetown, Mr. Brown,
one of the best. So we can decisively say that when MRI is used is only used for bad people. or we can say the other way that it's only used for good people either, right?
But then what I want to share with you is the word xojo, or is the logic comes from a wedge pairing. Literally the word means pairing, what's the purpose of a pair? A pair is two parts of one thing that go together to make something greater.
The night and the day are paired and together they make the whole day right, the sun and the moon are paired, right? There appears. Now similarly, men and women are also appeared. What is the purpose of the pairing of a man and a woman? What's the purpose there are two functions mainly. The first function is the create the excess the increase of good in a society.
When people get married, two people get married to less people prone to fitna at the next convention, right, so
I'm kidding. Not you, not you. Okay. So two less people prone to fitna, two more families coming together. It's a net necessarily, whenever two people get married, it is an increase of goodness and a reduction in evil. But that goodness can only happen when the husband and wife get along. And they're both the goals together are for goodness, right? The second purpose of marriages, human beings won't survive unless we have children. There are only two ways to have children the legitimate way or the illegitimate way. So the second function of marriage is obviously what
the legitimate the appropriate way of having children. So two functions of marriage, goodness, and children. This is the basic basic functionality of marriage. If any of these are missing, they're not called appear in the Quran. zoji is not used. If either of these are missing. zoji is not used. Let's go revisit these words. The wife of Noah was something missing.
No good was coming out of that marriage. The wife of loot was something missing. Goodness, the wife of
two negatives don't make a positive. Right? So
it's pretty bad relationship, even though they were very compatible. Okay, now, the wife of zekeriya angel comes and says you're gonna have a boy, she says I can't What's missing? Children are missing. Emma, the wife of Ibrahim.
Before the child came before the child came in, his wife heard it the news of a boy and she started laughing. Right so before the child in law, then we find the wife of the minister, Emma, the wife of fit our own great lady, What's missing?
Goodness in the marriage compatibility between the husband and wife and of course children issue of children to now all of this having said all of this, by the way, the prophets wives, our mothers are the Allahu on Honda. All of them together are called as wedge. Because we don't separate them. We look at all of them as one. So what's the appropriate term for them?
Okay, so I'll just watch now. The interesting case happens with zecharia
Zakaria you know what happens? A lot. So Joe granted him a son. What's your son's name?
Yeah, Lisa. Allah says what will happen Allahu yahaya. We granted him Yeah.
What a slash Nana who's xojo and we reconcile for him his xojo before the child ally mentions his wife, his wife in law. As soon as the I mentioned that he had a child, the word for his wife use was zoji because that which was missing is not missing anymore. So Pamela,
this is gonna get a little heavy. I warn you
and got to go.
You know, there are many suitors in the Quran that have oaths, allows or just swears by different things. Right.
And the example I decided to share with you today has to do with certain Musa that surah number 17
traditionally it has been held that the oath that Allah swears by something because it's very important. What Dini was a toonie or turrisi Nina was shamcey. What? Oh Ha Ha when he was so happy when finally when layli when I add in Ashlyn well finally, right? All of these are often no foreign unless swears by different things. One of the views that has been held is that it, Allah swears by these things, because in and of themselves, they are powerful and sacred or important. But that's not all. Allah swears by different things to elude, or to present an argument that is about to come. So if the beginning of the surah has oaths, it is leading to a conclusion, which is called jawaban
Custom, the response to these oath, they're also there to set set a certain mindset prepare you for an argument that is coming. Okay. With that in mind, I want to share with you some some really powerful literary oaths in the beginning of social martial art.
By the way, sootel masala belongs to a handful of pseudo pseudo Quran in which there is a lot of repetition. There's a lot of repetition, okay. This is one of those two ways in which there's a lot of repetition one of them is sort of very famous for being a lie, or bukhoma. Because even for Waylon, yoma is a little mocha DB is a repetition in suta masala, another pseudo with a lot of repetition to sort of show. Okay, these are a few handful of slurs in which there is a lot of repetition. Now,
the purpose of that repetition is a discussion for another day inshallah, because it has a profound function. Today, we're dealing with the oaths themselves. You see, the Quraysh had argued, you keep talking about the sun in the moon colliding, about the mountains are going to move swiftly, like, like, you know, like they're made of wool, and they're gonna move like that people are gonna be looking drunk, the oceans are gonna boil over these big things. This is not gonna happen. All this, what is it gonna come? All these big things you talk about, we've never seen anything like that. So they were basically arguing that the challenges and the threats of the forerunner to cataclysmic,
they are too enormous to be possible.
In response to that Allah azza wa jal takes an oath in these few words, by majority opinion of the Mufasa rule, and from the language that is supported
by wins, Allah swears in the beginning of so commercialized by the creation of Allah wins, and more sun and more Salah is used actually in Arabic for that which has been released.
It was used for horses, you were you know the word, which is what morality alpha is the ayah. Often Arabic is the back, you know, the the horse on the back of its head, its neck, there's this hair. And if you don't have ropes for a horse, what's the only thing you can grab on to to slow it down? It's not here a lot. So it just gives the image of winds as though they are like a horse, a wild horse, who has been unleashed, because it's here has been let go. What happens to a horse with a wild horse when you let go over here goes crazy. marches forward doesn't care where it's going full speed ahead. So the what's being paralleled is the image of a wild horse with winds, meaning winds
that Allah is telling the courage First of all, that winds are not something that blow randomly this way or that way. The soft breeze you feel on your face is because the rains are being held by who
I alaric Xhosa but it is very possible for that same Lord to let go of that lock of hair and what's going to happen.
They're going to turn into this wild horse the stallion is going to breeze through crush through when mortality or for the first one, the wild horse that has been released like like released the winds. The second philosopher as Arabic is to move in an inconsiderate fashion. What I mean by that is if I run into this thing, and I didn't even care, it's here and I keep running over it and trample over it. I don't care what's in my way I keep going. Okay, like a truck that doesn't have brakes, just crushes everything in its path a bulldozer nowadays, what the the movement of the bulldozer is as inconsiderate doesn't care what's in its way. It's gonna go anyway. When I asked if
it asked for these wings, like continuous the oath, the same wings that have been unleashed. Now they've become inconsiderate, merciless. They don't care what comes in the way they just go into I Atilla has described wings as a source of destruction. If you guys have ever seen video footage of what happened after Ike, or what happens after a hurricane, or after a tornado, after 40 seconds that it hits it on 40 seconds, you see what happens to the homes. Right? Allah azza wa jal sent wins upon a nation, seven consecutive consecutive days. Seven can
Socrative days wins have been unleashed upon them. Sahara him sobre la Erin. seven nights was a minute I am in costume. So how long was seven and eight seven days, eight nights, seven nights eight days rather continuously continuously pounding them. What is 40 seconds do
I saw you know after Galveston Hurricane Ike I saw some footage and I was there a few weeks ago. You know how they have those railings on the beach was metal railings are this thick, they were pushed it around like noodles is the craziest thing I've ever seen holla now the the winds which is not some major cataclysmic Sun and Moon coming together, there's no special event that has to be prepared. You know, when you make special arrangements for a mass weapon of destruction. What is Allah using to destroy these people? The wind alone doesn't need to make into it is totally crazy. There needs to be no special arrangement made for you guys. All he has to do is release the lock on
the wings. That's all he has to do. And then he turns around and he goes the other gives you the other dimension of wings. Wings can be a source of death Yes, but they are actually also a source of mercy. Allah as always it continues the next two oaths when national at the National
and the wings that that serve to spread all over the spread nationally literally means you take a bunch of seeds, you throw them on the ground, what happens to the seeds, the spread in random directions, right? So let's speaks about the wings that carry and disperse with the mouth of seed have concluded from this is that the winds carry and disperse the clouds. Because the clouds wherever they go, what's gonna fall, rain, and rain is the source of life on this earth. No rain, no life, drought means death. So the winds that were the source of death into first, the first two oats are now beginning to be the source of what life and now we know even better. Now we know winds don't
just carry the wind the clouds around, what else do they carry with them? The pollen, the source of vegetation, pollen travels from one place to the other by means of wins. Right? Those of you that have bad allergies know that pretty well. It's actually a mercy of a lot. Right, which is why we were reminded to say Alhamdulillah, right? So holla Anyway, when Nasha Latina shot large xojo spreads these these clouds out. Now when you think of spreads, cloud spreading, or pollen falling, you would think that this is random, you would think that this division of the clouds is going that way, not this way, or the drop fell here, not there. This is random. They call it the random acts of
Mother Nature, we know there's no such thing. These are precise, calculated acts of rule of law as origin. So he says fatty potty forcados make very precise divisions. It's gonna fall here, not here, this land will remain dry, this land will get water. Finally, quality factor. Two things have been given to us so far. These winds they bring about rain they bring about life and also they bring about what death both things that Eliza says after this fundamental piatti they cry, they bring people into contact with reminder.
These winds bring people into contact with reminder, just a few reminders that I want to share with you that these winds bring about if you reflect upon them,
wins winds are making they're causing a cooperation between the heavens and the earth. The clouds are moving in the heavens and the rain is falling on the earth all of it to serve who
serve us serve the human being. Allah is showing just by means of the winds that He has given it's a single leadership it's a single chain of command. It only comes from Allah they're not under separate leadership's it shows the purpose of creation one of the great reminders of the IOD the purpose of creation how everything comes in cooperates with everything else all as a favor to me right reminds you have your own purpose if Allah has created all of these things with such purpose then I for which for which was this this thing has been created. Haleakala can be created for you, I must have a purpose to so even when reminds me of my purpose in life. It's a profound reminder. And
then the second reminder that the winds carry. You know, I give you an example. If you left your pet in the house without giving them water, you forgot. You come back after the whole day. Your pet is at whose mercy
and your mercy until you take a little plate or you know, a little, you know, a drop of water and drop it in their tongue. They're begging for it. Whether that animal scratches you or damages your property or listens to you doesn't listen to you. In the end they submit to you as wild as they can get as wild and rebellious as human beings can get.
If Allah does not give us the sips of water to drink, where do we go?
There's nowhere else.
We are we're more pathetic than the pets we think we own. We are more powerless. We
For a lot, it is a reminder of the Lordship of Allah that he's letting you drink these sips this water is not your product, you can walk about arrogantly on the earth. But if he doesn't send that mercy from the sky, where are you going to be? the Lordship of Allah, the winds are reminding you of Allah's lordship over you and me. The second powerful reminder, so these winds deliver reminder, the winds are a reminder of resurrection,
these winds come, water comes from the sky, the Earth is dead, and what happens to the earth
comes back to life, dead, becomes living, because now every time the rains bring life to the earth, we are reminded that we will also die, and we will also be in this earth. And just like the earth is giving out vegetation, it will be giving out human beings on the Day of Resurrection. It's a reminder of resurrection, all of that reminder starts where if you just reflect on what the when Subhanallah, for the muki at the victim. And then finally, we said the windows two things, it comes as a source of destruction, or as a source of mercy, which reminds us that Allah has in place a profound system of punishment, and of reward, something that begets His wrath and other things,
things that beget His mercy. So we are reminded not to cross certain lines and to pursue certain other things in life, we are reminded of a lot of justice, we are reminded of a lot of commandments, just by the winds. And now that Allah has sent these winds and asked you to think about them in this way, and the airport processes that he would hear these words, I will process them immediately.
The last few hours that I want to share with you or run or
run over, people, all of us will feel the wind on our face. There'll be two kinds of people, people that will take the reminder and now they are warned, right? What's the other kind of person?
Nothing. Nothing is a nice breeze. Right? So for the people who took the warning the me the winds served as a warner novella. And for the people who didn't care, now the wind is an excuse to punish them. Allah sent them a reminder and they ignored it. Now that wind has become an excuse a means by which they should be punished have a reason to cause an excuse that that is now in creation that is witness against them. They will protect us from that over and over. And after all these oaths, these are the oath these are setting the stage this is not even the argument yet. This is just preparing you for the argument. What's the actual point in number two I do not know after what you have been
promised is no doubt going to become certainty it is going to happen. You have been promised something it is bound to occur. Either just like these wings that deliver Allah's mercy or less wrath, you will be the recipient one day of a less extreme mercy or a less extreme wrath, it is bound to happen. Old centocor are a profound literary masterpiece in and of themselves. Each one of them the sutras that begin with oats demands special special study just in and of themselves, right. And they're not all structured in the same way. It's an intricate study that a lot of our went into dialogue and I'm gonna sound a little blasphemous to you guys. I'm sorry. It's just a thing with
being a teacher. You do whatever you can to get the point across. Okay, I'm not much of a speaker. I'm more I try to turn more into a teacher or tutor. anybody here ever see Finding Nemo?
Okay, if you haven't seen it, go see it. It's a great movie, no bad language. And there's only one bad thing in it. The NEEMO says I hate you to his dad at one line and pays for it the whole movie. So that's that's good.
Other than that, yeah, usually even children's films have filth in them. So yeah, so anyway, it's a decent decent movie. Anyway, the reason I brought it up, and it's going to tie into what I'm about to share with you. There's this one scene in the movie that I'd like you to recall. And this one scene
NEEMO niemals. dad wasn't the Marlin. Right? He was Dad. Yes. So sisters license a lot. Yeah. So Marlin is all depressed. He's sitting on the back of this turtle named crush. And he's all sat in these little mini turtles come and say what happened. And he says, I don't want to talk about it. And then they get him to tell his story. And they all listen very carefully. Right. Now the way that the movie is filmed, it's animated. Marlin is telling the fishes telling the story to turtles, but they don't show him tell the entire story. You know what they do?
They cut it out. And all of a sudden goes turtles are talking to some other fish. And then those fish are talking to some other fish. And those fish are talking to some birds and those birds are talking to other birds. And they cut cut, cut, cut cut until the story gets to NEEMO but they didn't show it that the whole story was told from A to be then be narrated the whole story to see and see narrated the whole story to do they didn't have to waste time in the repetition. They just transfused from one scene to the other, you know what I'm talking about. Right now. This is the
This is a technique in modern film, right where you go from one scene to the next. And you sort of your the audience is expected to know what happened in between the lines. It's self explanatory, that everybody communicated the story further down the line. It's self explanatory. This is a technique in modern film, but it's actually used a lot in the Quran transition is the fact it's used it's very dominant feature of the Quran. I only brought it to you from Finding Nemo because I hope you've seen finding him on you know what transition is then. But I want to share an example of alluding to this dialogue, one of my favorite dialogues in the Quran. What is na darbuka Moosa when
your Lord called on Musa and karma while you mean go to the wrongful nation, go to the wrongful nation.
Lord, the Lord called on Musa go where the wrong formation homophones specifically the nation of who, for now, I don't have any taqwa don't have any consciousness Have no fear of Allah. Now Musa responds on a solemn Allah, he said, I'll be in need a half a new case, the boon,
my lord, this is no doubt I'm afraid that they're going to lie against me.
A few lines down, we will find he is afraid. He says the I'm afraid that they're going to kill me.
But the first fear he tells a lie is what?
I'm afraid they're gonna lie against me. What this tells us is something profound. musasa is not cared about life and death. He's not concerned about life and death. That's not what he cares about. What he cares about is this mission that Allah has given him, he does not want to disappoint this mission that Allah has handed him. And if they lie against him, he will not be able to fulfill his mission. So the first fear he expresses to Allah is that they are going to be lying me they're gonna lie against me. They're gonna disregard me in me, hahaha. And you can see Boone something pertaining directly to the task of law gave him. And then the second problem well, the full summary, my chest
becomes tight. Musa alayhis, Salam was known to have a temper. When people speak to me of noxious terms about a law, like founded when somebody speaks to him clearly in the wrong. The first thing some people are able to keep their common respond. Other people get really, really upset when they hear something outrageous, right? And there's some people in debate, their job is to say things outrageous to make you so angry that you can't think straight. And then you trip on your words. Now, it's not that you don't know what you're talking about, but you're just so mad that you can't talk clearly anymore. And he says he has that problem. He says, well, d equals suddenly my chest becomes
tight when I'm frustrated. What's implied here is this frustration. When I am politically savvy, and my my tongue stops articulating. He's not just talking about his stutter. He's talking about something else too. When he gets extremely angry, he can't communicate his ideas clearly. And he's afraid if he does that, what's gonna feel the mission, the task will suffer. So I fear this shortcoming of mine will come in the way of this task you have given me when I am politically sunny for our sin in our own beautiful words, give the responsibility of messenger ship to Harun also make him a messenger to if I feel the backup should be there. I'm not important, what's important. He's
saying the mission.
So he says, send heroin with me. This is why because I might fail. Then he goes Allah xojo. He asked, by the way when Elijah number one, and by the way, they have a especially against me, they have a rap sheet. They have a crime against me on file. What's the crime? He killed somebody for a half one afternoon.
I'm afraid that they're gonna kill me.
He asked for Haruna alayhis salaam to be hired first. Then he said I might get killed, which explains why you need how to win in the first place. In case he gets killed, who will still be there to deliver the message.
So he's explaining his rationale for putting one in place. So patola he's not afraid of being killed. He's afraid of the mission mission not being accomplished upon Allah and he stood up for half one yaku Kala kala, Allah said to him, No, no, no further haba both of you go. The beginning of the dialogue is between a lion Moosa and Allah says, Who goes both of you what is already understood.
He granted most of you go have a big dinner, go with our signs or miraculous signs and he says in American, Muslim, Iran, we are going to be listening to you. We are going to be in the listening audience among you, Allah says about himself. Now the thing is, a lot could have said we're gonna be watching you. Right. You could have said we're going to be watching you. You can watch someone from a distance. But to listen to someone where do you have to be? Alive showing his Mariya his closeness
He wants to he wants masayoshi son to feel that ally who is close to him, he's supporting him. So we're listening to him. Allah says we're going to be listening also has given us another lesson here. Allah says we're going to be listening carefully to what
the dialogue that takes place between you and who
you don't. So if Allah says he will be listening carefully, what should we be doing?
Listen carefully. This dialogue has a lot to offer. That's why we should be listening carefully.
Then now what watch the transition to fit on both of you then go to fit on Fukuda, then both of you say in rasuluh, behind me, we are both like one messenger of the Lord of the worlds we were inseparable. They didn't say we are messengers. They said we are messengers singular we can you can separate us in now those who love bigger Island me. And Nana Bunny is like in the first thing they're supposed to say, We are the messenger of the Lord of the worlds. The second thing they're supposed to do to say, deliver with us when he's flying. Send bunnies fly in with us. Leave them from your captivity, you guys know the children of Israel was slaves, right? They were under
captivity of Iran. So two demands first demand, we are a messenger of the Lord of the worlds the second demand send with us when he's fighting. Now I want to show you the transition color fear around said
wait a second in the previous ayah who was talking?
Allah was talking to Mossad Islam and to Harun indirectly, on Instagram, in the very next ayah who's responding, fit Island, we have been shown a transition. A lot told them to say this, it's understood that they went and they said this. It doesn't have to be repeated. It's redundant. It's understood. But by the way, I want you to picture this musala a salon already said he's a he's known as a criminal. They're, they have a rap sheet against him, that he's known for a murder. He's the, you know, alleged to have murdered somebody. He's a wanted criminal. He's a fugitive. He ran away from that city.
He has to go we're now not sneak into his house. Not on the outskirts of the city. Where does he have to go?
To to the palace, where there are the majority of the guards. The the chances of getting killed would be highest when you go towards the police station.
Right? He has to go towards them. He walks into the castle off in Ireland stands in front of it on the law protection thus far. Obviously he's a fugitive, the police are looking at him funny. Everybody's laughing at them. He's standing next to Harun, who's from the Israelites was considered second class citizens. And Pharaoh is the King. He's on the throne. He's in authority, obviously, who's in a higher position right now as it seems, if you look at that scene, who's got the upper hand? He's got the upper hand. He's got the upper hand. And now you walk into his court and you say we are the messengers of the Lord of the worlds who claimed that he's the Lord.
And you go to them say By the way, you're not the Lord. We're actually representing the Lord.
You walk to his palace and slap him on the face with that statement in Nara, Surah Al amin, and then he is Lord and especially he's Lord over the slave nation.
What's the second thing you have to say?
By the way, your lordship over the slave nation is done. Send them with us.
Now imagine this scenario. It's very strange. masayoshi son is in no position apparently to make these these these claims. But he does fit our own clever politician. Imagine him sitting arrogantly on his throne. his ministers all around him smirking as musante. Sam is talking. What's he talking about? He says Ana, Ron says, alumna Robby kathina. Juanita.
Didn't we raise you as a boy among us? They didn't let you live among us as a boy. Wasn't this a favor? What's he saying to you to him? You should be coming begging me at my feet that I have been thanking me that I haven't killed you yet. Here you are coming talking to me like this. Have you forgotten that I raised you in our home as a child. You disloyal. See, he's insulting the character of Messiah is a very respond to any of the things Moses said, by the way. No, he's clever. He's clever. He's trying to test the psychological firmness of musasa. He's trying to throw him off his feet. Didn't we raise you as a boy among us? Well, I Mr. Federman, armory Cassini and you spent many
years voluntarily with us. It's not like we held you. You spent them. Let me set the stage voluntarily. You stayed with us for many years. Who are you to talk like this in between the lines? What's the elta phyletic unless he felt and you did the thing that you did?
See the way he said it? You did that act of yours that you had done.
What does that act?
He didn't say you kill someone. He's trying to make them nervous. You want me to tell everyone what you did. You
You know the thing, she's intimidating, Busan is gonna fall to fall attack, and that he found one terminal caffeine and you're from those who deny you're from those who deny my favor, you're for those who deny that you knew murder, Garfield is to deny. So now if no one is trying to put himself in this more intimidating position and put Masada slam down masala response column file to her isn't. I did that then, by the way, if Iran had said, I raised you as a boy, you stayed with us for many years and you killed someone. Three things of these three things. What's the most important allegation against Moosa?
The third, so he responds to that one first, because he's an intelligent man, he needs to get rid of the biggest hurdle first, I did that I committed that act, then well, and I'm in a bad lead. And I was from those who were misled. I was confused. I was conned into it. I did it. I admit it. He admits it gets that out of the way. First, he's not a carrier of it anymore. He's not in denial of that anymore. Then he says from firewall to income, beautiful. I ran away from you. Lemme have to come. When I used to be scared of you.
lumbers have to come when I used to be scared of you. What's he telling him?
not working. I'm not scared you. I had run away. When I when I was scared of you and I have come back as a sign. It's already an indication that what I'm not scared of you now have to go for what happened to the Pokemon. And my real Lord, my Lord. He granted me wisdom and firmness,
which I let him know Mussolini made me from those who have been sent, meaning I haven't come back to visit. I have been sent on a mission. The first thing he said was, he's a messenger. Now he's coming back to the same subject because he's not letting himself be distracted by the side arguments. He come back to the main point I have been sent comes back to the same thing he started with fit on was trying to change the subject. The politician that he is he doesn't want to answer the question. He wants to change the subject. Start a new controversy. Sound familiar? Right. And so this masayoshi son doesn't get dissuaded. He stays on point I have been sent from I've been from those who have
been sent. He's made me from those who've been sent. What till? Can you imagine? tamanu? holla? Yeah. And by the way, that favor? You speak up? What favor?
You raised me. You did favor that upon me. I I agree. And when he saw him, he poses a question. So you did that favor to me. And as a result, you have a right to enslave when he saw him? Is that what you're trying to say? He tries to question the rationale of it. I don't remember the second demand of Musa what was it
sort of delivered when you saw him? He says to him, by the way, you're saying that you raised me as a boy. Thanks. By the way, you did do that favor. What does that have to do with enslaving bunnies? Right? What are you talking about? You see, masala Islam didn't move from the point. And he showed the lack of rationale in his line of thinking, which is already an insult to the intellect of Darwin in front of the entire audience. Who is the audience? The high caliber ministers of Finance. They're the ones in the palace, right? The loyalists, and in front of all of them, oh,
that's what happens.
at all this now stumped, he doesn't have any choice, but to address the subject at hand. So what does this
mean? What Lord of the worlds are you talking about? He didn't even say a woman or a bull. I mean, who's the Lord of the worlds? He didn't say who he said? What? You know, when you say what you're saying, it doesn't even exist. When you say Who? Then you're trying to figure out who it is. When you say what you're trying to say. It's just a fathom of your man. It's just a figure of your imagination. What What are you talking about? What Lord of the worlds? And he thought by insulting musala sound like that? What Lord of the worlds
like that? What's he going to say now? musala salon takes that opportunity and stabs him right where it hurts. Look, Carla masam said, Rob Bustamante, when the Lord of the heavens in the earth, by the way, the pharaohs used to worship the sun, which is where
in the sky, he's, he's the he's the Lord and He claims that the sun is the Lord. That's what they claimed. So he tells him by the way, he's not just your Lord, by the way, he's Lord of
the heavens, and you're the king on the earth. He's a Lord of the earth to Robert sumati. Well, well Marina home and everything in between.
So Hon, Allah Azza wa T was rabina Houma.
makini He didn't say in Quinta MacKinnon. He didn't say if you are seeking conviction, you know what he did? He said, You're useless. I don't even want to talk to you. I've already beat you. I'm going to talk to the rest of your crew here. So he says, The Lord of the heavens and the earth and everything in between. If all of you
You are seeking to be convinced. He turned away from Moosa from from Pharaoh. He turned to them consumers plural. He turned to them. Again, another slap on his face because now Moosa is like I don't have to talk to you. You're worth it. You're not worth it. You can walk in. Now look holliman Hello, Pharaoh Now listen to all of these people around him are being stunned by by Mossad. Islam is getting nervous. So what does he say? He says to those who are around him, or not even Hola, who and that his 10 year old? Are you not listening carefully enough to what he's saying? Do you realize what he's saying? Meaning you think listening to him is an insult to me. You're being disloyal to
you realize that. So he's trying to alert his people to stay under his rank by scaring them first. The first tactic was fear. And as a stimulant. masala, Sam says, while he's getting nervous, might as well take an advantage of this opportunity, some more color have become more equal.
Not just your Lord, all of you, but you're the Lord of your ancient forefathers who you believe were gods to his dear lord.
He's not talking to him right now. He's talking to the audience or buco, or a Baba he will in first he was a Lord of the heavens and the earth and everything in between. Now he brings it home, even your Lord, not just the skies and the earth, your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers. Now they're really like they can't stop but listen to Mozart, a sudden, they're stunned by him. So what is going on dude? Now he's getting desperate. By the way, when I started this dialogue, it was up here. And Moosa was down here, have you noticed a shift?
Fan always getting nervous? The people are listening to musasa there's a there's a shift in the balance of dialogue power.
This dialogue is changing momentum. And now look around gets frustrated, he says, on an inner Sudoku, unless he or she lives in a Lamborghini.
He said this messenger of yours. By the way, he didn't say the messenger, he said, this messenger of yours, meaning it illustrates that the people were actually listening carefully, so much so that no one had to say your messenger. He didn't just say this man. He said,
your messenger is you're listening to him like he's your messenger. By the way, this messenger has been sent to you who sila alaikum. Was he sent a demo around first.
He was sent home, but they don't doesn't want to accept that. So he directs that he was sent to you guys. Number June. He's insane. He's crazy. Now watch this carefully. The first attack on the personality of Musa was loyalty. We raised you as a boy.
The second attack was the crime right? His track record. The third attack is his sanity. He's insane. Damage noon now watch. All horrible mess up while mockery be one will Nabina Huma in continued afternoon. musasa doesn't stop. He doesn't have to respond. No, no, I'm not crazy. He says I'm gonna stay on point and let him play, let him stumble, let him trip over himself. masala, Sam says, The Lord of the east and the west. And then he says in one Nabina, Houma, whatever is in between the East and the West, if all of you are really thinking about it, if you are seeking to apply your intellect, then what I'm telling you is very convincing.
Now he is upset, because the people have shifted their attention from Fidel into who moves and this is his cabinet. This is his administration. So he's so upset. He says, color, he says to musasa, the in it the hosta ilahi. If you dare take anyone worthy of worship except me, that agilon nicotinell must uni, there's no doubt about it, I will make you from those who have been imprisoned, meaning people who have already been imprisoned for showing this loyalty. And I will consider this an act of treason. And I will put you in prison. When do you threaten someone, when you can't beat them in argument, then you try to overpower them with your muscle. So the fact that he threatened musalla is
run with prison was in and of itself a proof that he has lost the debate that was already approved that he's lost. Because if he hadn't lost he would have more arguments. This is not an argument. This is just a threat. No answer. He's got no answer. He's been stumped already. Now, this is a non response on our logic to publish a movie. Okay, I'll be in prison even if I bring you a clear proof for what I'm talking about. Let's stay on the ideas instead of turning to your threads. You want to deal with this better? Let's get it over with maybe I don't have anything to show you. Even if I bring you something clear a clarifying evidence. Now if you don't want to, you know everybody's
what what's he gonna do?
Well, sorry, Sam challenged him. He's gonna back down from the challenge then obviously, who won? Missouri and everybody will be talking afterwards. Oh my god. Finally.
Got it today? You know, I can't let that happen for no one says, I got to take him on. I don't have a choice. He's been backed into a corner. So he says fine.
TV, huh? Go ahead bring it if you're from the truthful, he's nervous now.
And now what's odd is that I'm brings what has
his staff, it turns into a snake. He takes his hand out and it's white. And as he's watching that, and you're thinking of what can I do? What can I do to make people not late? Look at that. The words were amazing enough and now they see this. What's the best way to stop this from going on? What did he say?
He says Cali, Dilma. But before it was lil lemon, Hola, who by the way, he spoke to whoever was around him. Now it says he spoke to the Chiefs around him, because what must he have noticed? The Chiefs were impressed. And if the chiefs are impressed, it can be a coup. You know that right? When the generals are turning, then there can be a change. So you got to keep your generals close. So he says we're currently
in the huddle. asahina. Aleem This is a knowledgeable magician.
How can he be crazy and a knowledgeable magician at the same time?
Either you're a PhD in physics, or you are in the psych ward.
You can't be both. In the same dialogue, he started first by seeing what he's crazy. Then if that didn't work, let's come up with something new. And what's the new one? He's a very good magician.
So have a look. He actually disproved his own self.
The people around him are very smart. They know that he's already changed the story a few times. Which means he's desperate to find something to defeat what he sees that cannot be defeated. It can't be defeated. So he's desperate to come up with new stuff. You need to unmute the gentleman This is what will end inshallah, you will need a new feature coming out of the con this Saturday.
He intends to get you out of your land by means of his magic.
He is he's a threat to national security.
If you listen to him, you will all be deported.
What did he just use? First, he tried to intimidate Muslim had incident. First he tried to insult him, then to intimidate him then to accuse him then to character assassinate him by calling him insane. Then when none of that worked, I can't scare him anymore. Well, who should I scare now? The people if I can't scare him, let me scare them into believing that if they say follow Him, what's gonna happen, they'll all be kicked out of their land. Did he say anything about leaving the land
or kicking people out of their land, he wants to leave the land with who?
He said no such thing. But you know, as a political leader, the smart thing is to rally people on your cause whether it's right or not, the best glue that will bring people together is fear against an enemy. That's the best glue. So if you don't realize is that's the only thing I got left. So the only attack this time is actually not an attack on muscle directly on a salon. But it's actually a means to unify his people to bring them rally the troops again. You need a new creature coming out of the conversation he he wants to get you out of your land by his magic. And by the way, who commands in Egypt who had the command? Pharaoh, look at this if I'm a moron. What do you guys say?
Who's whose opinion did he ask the peoples because he saw that the people are not listening to him. So he wanted to make the people feel included in the process. So he could keep them loyal. They were he was losing the loyalty because normally what would fit I won't say who has commanded whose opinion is this mine my way or no way. But now he's forced to save money. What do you guys think?
He's been humbled, he's been overpowered just by the words that were given to musasa just by that dialogue is one of the most powerful means of communicating messages in the Quran. It's not just this one said this, this one said that every piece of the dialogue as I tried to illustrate to you has powerful, you know, implications that are very difficult to communicate in paragraphs, I have to stop at every line and give you 678 lines to three minutes. But the way it's captured so eloquently woven together, it's incredible. It really is. So the point that I want to drive home and outline I'm done baby large lock will open for your attention is as follows. The Quran is remarkable,
stunning, mesmerizing literature. You have never read anything in your life that will come close to having the impact not just from the religious point of view. But even from the psychological point of view. You will not be affected by anything that you will ever listen to or read like you will be by the Quran. The tragedy of our times is that we have reduced the Koran to translation
and reduce the Quran to certain isolated quotations, by virtue of which we actually don't get to see the power in which it is communicating its message. And this is a big problem. By the way, the scholars of the Arabs don't have this problem, they see it, they see the beauty. This is a problem mostly for the majority of the people of this oma, who are suffering from a mind deficit to begin with. And if they saw this miracle, and they saw that mesmerizing power of the Quran, at least heard about it on a regular basis, we wouldn't necessarily see a change in attitudes, a change in the regard the all the inspiration we take from this point on, it would be a different relationship, the
dynamics of that relationship would change. At the very end of my talk, I wanted to make an announcement. This I was motivated to do this program for a few reasons. First of all, I'm very honored by the invitation it really is an honor to be here come to LA. I've been working about two and a half years now on putting together a weekend seminar. Just a single weekend seminar on you know, these few examples I shared with you schreib and in Word precision and dialogue and oh thunderquote on right, these are three or about 22 categories of Quranic literature, literary analysis, that I've been working on compiling from various scholarly resources. And I've designed
them to present them in shallow tala Rubina in a way that is easy to understand for folks that have never studied Arabic before. I don't want this the prerequisite for this to be Arabic studies. Of course, if you're studying Arabic, you will appreciate it. But even if you haven't, my intention is to give this sort of, you know, a popular exposure, a mass exposure to this dimension of the beauty of the Quran inshallah Tada. And my my sole motivation for that is I want to inspire an entire generation of people, spanning ages and genders and races and ethnicities, that we all get into the realm of Islamic studies of Arabic studies, and more particularly Koran studies, more and more
seriously, and that we have more meaningful experience when we pray. Because our prayer the longest part of it is what to put on. And if we can appreciate the power of the Quran in our prayers, well it would be different people, we'd be a different kind of people. So I pray that inshallah tada you're able to join this venture whenever it comes to your town within I think it should be in New York Pretty soon, but it's going to be traveling all over the country and I'm hopeful that you'll you'll attend with yourselves and your families inshallah tada and you can check our website right you know, what's the website?
