Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah

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

salam alaikum everyone amazed by the Quran a series in which I'd like to share with you what I find amazing about the Quran. Yet another episode where I compare two IR to each other this one belongs to a little hedge and the other one belongs to sort of look upon that soon as number 22 and 31. Now in both of them, they're almost entirely identical. So I'm going to read the if I'm sort of hedged to you, that ecobee anila, who will have, I will read the ayah. from Luke one as we go piece by piece, unless as in Hudson Valley, cabbie anila will hug he says, Look, man Valley can be anila ha ha. That is because Allah Himself is the ultimate truth, identical statement in both cases, well and

00:00:42--> 00:01:24

amiodarone, amin dooney, he who elberton and what and because of the fact that what they call besides Him, it is the ultimate falsehood. It is truly false. That's in one case. And the other case, what they call besides Him is false, not truly false, or incredibly false, just false. So one emphasizes falsehood, and the other doesn't emphasize falsehood. And then what and Allahu Allah, Allah, you will be both identical again, and that Allah is the ultimate, the all Hi, the great. So everything is the same, that lies the truth and lies the ultimate truth, a lie is high, the great, but when it came to what they call upon, in one case, what they call upon is falsehood, that's in

00:01:24--> 00:02:02

Luke one. But it's sort of hudge what they call upon in fact is the falsehood that is the ultimate evil that is the ultimate false Why, why this extra emphasis when everything else is identical. So how the law look man is actually you can argue mid makin, you know, the prophecy Salam is giving is preaching the message of Islam, and people are being introduced to the concept of one God and not worshipping other false gods and things are becoming settled that this this is false, worshipping false, Gods Gods is false. But if you compare that to the context and the tone, and the language of sort of hygiene is a remarkable difference, sort of hygiene fact is actually when the ideological

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

conflict has reached kind of a peak. And you we've already decided to actually migrate and the intensity with which they are defending their false god has increased. And the Muslims are being taught that not only all false gods, but the false gods that are being worshipped at the Kaaba, they are the ultimate evil because they are preventing humanity from being restored to the face of Ibraheem alehissalaam that's what it's called sort of hedge, by the way hedge you can only do at a car, you know, so you, you have to restore the integrity of that house. That's why at the end of this sort of economy, Brahim, you are the religion of your father Abraham, you know, Abraham, and so

00:02:42--> 00:03:19

yes, false gods in general are false. But the ones that are violating the Kaaba are the ultimate falsehood. They are the ultimate false and and the Muslims are being given this emphatic declaration, about their mission that this house must be cleansed. On a side note, by the way, in recent news, you have people destroying idols, in the name of Islam. And it should be understood what the Islamic stance on that is, you understand that there are two cases in which this happened. I even saw a video of people breaking idols in a museum. And they're like in the background of the video, they're playing the eyes of the Koran with Abraham, Abraham, I'm destroyed the idols actor

00:03:19--> 00:03:52

playing that reputation and the wrecking the idols. Two things here. First of all, in Islamic literature, when are the two instances of breaking idols? It's Ibrahim Ali Salaam story when he broke the idols. And it's the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam when he broke the idols after the conquest of Makkah. Okay, so those are the two cases in Islamic history. Let's understand both of them. Let's first start with Ibrahim on this and they say we're fulfilling a legacy of Ibrahim. The only problem with that is what they'll call Pooja tuna. Athena, hi Rahim. Allah says in the Quran, that those ways of making an argument we had exclusively given to Abraham Ibrahim Alayhi Salam has

00:03:52--> 00:04:10

been tested in ways nobody else has been tested. He's been taught to make arguments nobody else has been asked to make. That's why lessons what Allah Ibrahima Prabhu, when his master tested Ibrahim in a way that he can only test Ibrahim Ibrahim is his macadam in the language, which suggests only he could have been tested this way. Nobody else was tested this way.

00:04:12--> 00:04:43

As a matter of fact, he's the only one person who's ever called an oma an entire nation by himself, an entire nation by himself. So he stands unique in many fronts, in many, many fronts, and one of them is the way he was told to make a case. No other prophet ever destroyed. By the way, let me tell you something, the is about him breaking idols is makan. These are mocking iaat when the prophet of Islam lived in the city of Mecca, and by the way, he had access to the Kaaba. He had access to the Kaaba, and if he was going to fulfill the son of his father Ibrahim, he had very much the ability to destroy the idols.

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

They've taken beatings at the Kaaba. They've prayed at the Kaaba. It's not like they don't have access to the cover. They do. They do. It's not like Ibrahim Ali Salaam had a massive army behind him, and that's when he destroyed the idols. He actually destroyed it as a boy

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

With no power behind it just like the profit and markup. So if the idea was to be applied, then the first to be applying it would be the Prophet himself. Salallahu alaihe salam ridiculous how you can take that legacy and impose it on accused Ibrahim alayhis salaam of that. It's ridiculous. Here's the second ridiculous thing they say wait a second, the prophet destroyed idols

00:05:22--> 00:05:48

didn't even need destroyed idols at the conquest of McCarthy. Absolutely he did. Absolutely he did. Did he fulfill the legacy of Ibrahim technically No. What he did when he destroyed the idols, is he took a Masjid a mosque that was built by his father Ibrahim, that had been violated with idols and destroyed those idols. The principle learned then is when a mosque is filled with idols, they should be destroyed.

00:05:49--> 00:06:09

With a house of worship that was dedicated for the worship of one God has been violated. That's, you know, desecrated its sanctity destroyed by the presence of idols, then the Muslim has the right to destroy those idols keep throw those idols out. That he certainly does, but to go into other people's houses of worship,

00:06:10--> 00:06:47

and to destroy their idols. This has nothing to do with Islam. This has absolutely nothing to do with Islam. As a matter of fact, the eye of the Quran and by Hara Beatty as a female it fieldworkers you, you should purify my house for people. The era Abraham and Ishmael Abraham's married aligment salam at covenant was taken from them, a promise was taken from them, that you will purify my house, all the profit is doing so iclm is fulfilling the promise of his father that that house should be pure by God's sanction. Allah did not say go and destroy other people's idols. As a matter of fact, Koran says don't even curse their idols, don't even speak ill of them, forget doing ill to them.

00:06:48--> 00:07:13

Don't even speak ill of other people's titles. That's what the Quran says. So when people use these things, and attribute this, this, you know, ignorant behavior, to the nobility of our profits, our labels latos law, it's a sad day for the oma. It really is me allows that wouldn't give us a correct understanding of our religion and restore in our minds in our hearts, the beauty and perfection that it's always had barakallahu li walakum wa salaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
