00:00:53--> 00:01:28

not on once again everyone salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato obrigado. So today, inshallah, we're going to try to discuss some more things about Alibaba him and Iran and maybe get up to iron number 35. The thing that's really important to understand in some of these passages is what what you can call biblical subtext. In other words, the audience that Allah is speaking to, is somewhat familiar with, or maybe thoroughly familiar with the Bible. they're familiar with the Old Testament and ally speaking to them based on the knowledge they already have of previous scripture. So we saw a lot of that in sort of Bukhara, and we're going to see some of that especially dedicated, in

00:01:28--> 00:02:04

particular, not exclusively, but particularly dedicated to the Christian audience that came into contact with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. It's also important to note that no Quran Allah is not talking to all Christians universally all the time. There are variations of Christianity, there are strands of Christianity, there are strands of Judaism that the Prophet came into contact with several values Adam, and the Quran addressed their particular school of thought, if you will, so it wasn't described, for example, discussing Catholicism, or the Protestant school or evangelical Christians and things like that. It wasn't in that context that some of this discourse was revealed,

00:02:04--> 00:02:39

is these particular brands of you know, our strands of Judaism, strands of Christianity, that the Quran was dealing with very, very directly. An example of that is the the Jews in the Quran quality who they don't even know law. The Jews say that that Rosetta is the son of a lot, vast majority of Orthodox Jews and Hasidic Jews, and that the vast majority of schools of Jews don't believe that he was the son of Allah. But there are strands of Judaism. Some of them are found in the Arabian region that actually did hold that view. So you have to you can't say, well, the Quran is wrong, because the Jews don't believe that when the Quran said that it's dealing with the group that it's

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

physically engaged with. This is also important because the

00:02:44--> 00:03:20

the Muslim goon of Arabia had a strange sort of theology also they mixed religions together. So they knew some things about angels, they knew some things about profits, they knew some things about Abraham, they knew some things about different mythologies as they traveled into trade. They knew some things about Christianity, and he saw some, some Muslim who never even considered it, Sally said, I'm an angel. And so all kinds of views were mixed together. And so a lot of times the Quran is clarifying issues based on the confusions that exist in front of them. And in doing so, the Quran, the universal lesson of the Quran, is that we have to be clear about who are we talking to,

00:03:20--> 00:04:00

and what confusions Do they have, and then how to address that that's the legacy also left by the Quran by dealing with each group in this, you know, in this specific way. In any case, the focus today is alibre him and and Ron before we go any further, and alibre him is important, the family or the legacy fam the family legacy of Ibrahim alayhi salam, because up until now for the most part in the Quran, in Mecca and Quran, the role of Abraham and Islam predominantly, again, not exclusively, but predominantly occurs as someone who championed tauheed that the only one Allah should be one God should be worshipped. And [???] must be abundant. And I'm willing, he's willing to do and go through

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

any trial and his loyalty to Allah. As you start seeing the mention of Ibrahim alayhis salam in Medina and Quran in Surah Al Baqarah. And so in this surah in a few other suitors, you're going to notice about him at a salon playing a slightly different role. And that is the role of the father of those who believe the paternal role the patriarch of the of those who believe who made who prayed for his coming lineage, right and this was it's important for us of course, we know those Daughters of Abraham Ali, salaam, woman Doria Tina Amata muslimah tallac you know, Robbie Gianni mocha masala tea momento Realty. That's that even though that's McCann, but that's a brief illusion. There's more

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

of that in Medina and Quran. But for the Christians and the Jews, but right now the Christians that stuff is really important. And we're going to see why that's important. I'm going to share some some biblical research stuff with you in shallow Darla today. Another important thing to note about Ibrahim alayhis salam is that scholars like Tillman, Nigel and others have

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

actually held the view that the even the Muslim goon Arabia, they actually believed in Ibrahim alayhis salaam as the founder of the Kaaba already. Like that wasn't something that the Christians believed about Abraham and the sacrifice the story of the sacrifice, but it's something that the Arabs held for a long time. And these Western scholars in discovering that have actually not realized that they've helped the Muslims quite a bit. Why? Because a lot of Christians believe that the Son to be sacrificed was Isaac.

00:05:31--> 00:05:39

Right, not not married. They consider his marriage actually an illegitimate child Mandala. And so they can't he can't have a blessed lineage. Right.

00:05:40--> 00:06:18

But interestingly enough, the Arabs have had for 1000s of years even before you know their exposure to Christianity. They've had the tradition now this has been researched, they've had the tradition of sacrificing the animal performing hajj, and attributing that to Abraham and his married life. They've had that tradition, they mixed check with it, they did all kinds of other things with it. But why in the world would Arabs in the desert with no outside influences be celebrating this tradition and sacrificing and the name of their father Ibrahim and that's something I actually sites you know for salary Rebecca, what how you're supposed to cleanse that tradition. They have salon,

00:06:18--> 00:06:42

they have not. But you have to revive that for Yeah, Buddha had to wait in the same solar, right or the same vicinity of solar. Why? Because they should the debate is a reference to Ibrahim alayhis salam in the master of this house, this house being the house built by Ibrahim and Islam. So in doing so, it's actually establishing that the Son to be sacrificed. And that's the biblical stories, if you will, is actually about maka

00:06:44--> 00:07:18

a research that hasn't yet been done. And it's interesting. Perhaps somebody will take it up is actually the the view of the Christians living in Medina, the Christians and Jews that lived in Medina and what was their view of the Kaaba and what was there because they came into contact with the story of the Kaaba. It's also known in some accounts that there were Christians living in Medina, that had letters from their ancestors, like a letter from their ancestors passed on many generations, that from what we've studied, a prophet is coming here, wait for him, don't leave this city. He'll come here and actually one of the Sahaba when the prophets I send them came to Medina

00:07:18--> 00:07:53

handed him the letter and said, I've been we've been waiting here for a long time for you. So essentially, they saw that as a fulfillment of what was already prophesized. Right. So the, the even the Christians are the People of the Book of before, they have some connection to the region, even though Jerusalem is not physically that far away. But they have some association with this region. And that's these are important things to understand because that plays a role in the centrality of the Kaaba, and therefore the real legacy Rahim Elisa Lam, who owns that legacy in olan Naseby Ibrahim is the phrase that's going to be used here, the people that have the most right to Ibrahim

00:07:53--> 00:08:32

alayhis salam, right. So that's an important, you know, under undercurrent in a lot of this text. Then, when Ibrahim alayhis, Salam made $1 for, you know, Makkah, and it to be a prosperous city. It's interesting that in the Bible, there's an alternative prayer, it's called, I won't read the prayer off to you, but you can look it up in your own time in sha Allah. It's called the consecration of the Temple of Jerusalem. And it's, you know, according to Solomon, and it's something that, you know, Abraham prayed Abraham, Allison prays for Jerusalem, and its prosperity, and you will think it's almost exactly the same thing. But in our case, it's being the prayers being

00:08:32--> 00:09:07

made for the city of Makkah. Right. And some argue that perhaps that was changed. Some Muslims argued that may have been changed that originally that was Makkah, but they didn't want it to be Makkah. You know, and there's some research to suggest that to like, buy among Cambodian for our Allah, Allahu taala. But the idea is, if a Christian was listening to the Quran, and he was listening to the prayers of Ibrahim Ali Salaam for the city of Mecca, they will actually remember the prayers of Ibrahim associated with Jerusalem and say, Wait, this sounds all too familiar. There's that parallel is drawn. The other important thing with Ibrahim alayhis salam is the prayer

00:09:08--> 00:09:44

that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam made. He said, what about all of my children? What means the reality? And in the consecration of prayer that the Christians have and the Jews have, especially the Christians believed that the children of Abraham were somehow chosen and saved? There, the saved children and us Jews held on to that view, of course, this concept was called the hood and what in their in their tradition, ancestral marriage, that's how it translates ancestral merit, that the Israelites share in the special rank and privilege of the patriarch, meaning Abraham, merely by being descendants from them. Just by being Abraham's children, they are chosen special, of course, the Quran then, you

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

know, this thing that they're chosen, can mutate, it can get, it's nice to believe that we're chosen like we believe that we're chosen, like Allah chose us to be the oma of Muhammad. So it's not a bad thing to believe that, but when it mutates, what does it turn into now?

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

I'm not lucky. Well, I bought who were the children of God, and were the most beloved of God. There's no way he's gonna punish us. Right? And it's interesting that in the Quran, Allah azza wa jal made it clear Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam wanted this special rank for all of his children. And he said no Lionello actually mean, my promise doesn't extend to wrongdoer. So in a sense, the Quran is actually taking that concept of the hood and what the ancestral merit and it's cleaning it up. The Quran is cleaning it up from the tongue of Ibrahim alayhis salaam. And the last thing No, I didn't give that open license that all of you are blessed know the ones of you who do wrong and are

00:10:34--> 00:11:06

blessed. That's not going to fly. And so the original prayer and the original dialogue with the Rahim Allah Salaam is being again revived, restored, the Christians call it it's being retold, as if the Quran is doing a creative retelling of the story. Our view is the Quran is actually going back and telling the original, it's interesting in the eye of the Quran. They didn't just say were the children of God. They said were the children of God and the beloved of God, but not Allah, He will have bio which is a really interesting parallel because in the Quran, how Allah Abdullah Ibrahim Ibrahim,

00:11:07--> 00:11:42

in the Quran account, they may be children of Abraham, but he does not necessarily love them if they do wrong. and by extension, you might think you're blessed by God, but just because you're from that lineage, even your father is not happy with you. He stopped praying for them. He prayed for the children who would believe you know what? alumina thammarat man, amen, amen hombre La Jolla with acid he qualified as if the ones who don't believe he doesn't care. So that's an important, you know, undercurrent in the text. Also, I'll cite something from the Bible. This is gonna sound awkward to you because the word circumcision is being used quite a bit in this passage. This is

00:11:42--> 00:12:22

attributed to Abraham and Islam. It's in Romans four. And even though this might sound a bit abstract to you, at the end, it'll make sense why I'm making reference to this. Is this blessedness only for the circumcised or also for the uncircumcised? We have been saying that Abraham's faith was credited to him as righteousness. Under what circumstances? Was it credited? Was it after he was circumcised or before it was not after but before, and he received circumcision as a sign, a seal of the righteousness that he had by faith, while he was still uncircumcised. So then he is the father of all who believe, but have not been circumcised in order that righteousness may be might be

00:12:22--> 00:12:56

credited to them. And he is then also the father of the circumcised, who not only are the circumcised, but who also follow in the footsteps, also the father of the circumcised, who not only are the circumcised, but who also follow in the footsteps of the faith that our father Abraham had before he was circumcised. This is Paul talking about circumcision as a sign of those who believe, right? And circumcision is a big thing in Jewish tradition. And of course, it's made its way into Islam also. The reason this is important, Paul, by the way, later on, because it's such an emphasis on circumcision. Later on, he said, circumcision the circumcision of the heart, because he didn't

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

want that applied to himself. So he kind of

00:12:59--> 00:13:38

so that's also later on but anyway, the reason this is important is because the Quran describing the religion of Ibrahim, it uses the term millet Ibrahim, right? On a number of occasions, we found mulata. Become of Rahim, or mulata Ibrahima hanifa. In Hebrew buried millet is the covenant of circumcision. It's actually literally considered the circumcision or the covenant. I mean, Rahim, the term is buried millet. And so the word circumcision doesn't just refer to that ritual, it actually refers to the contract between him and Allah, which the Quran then calls Miller. So when they hear the word Mila and Ibrahim together, they're actually also thinking, we think a religion of

00:13:38--> 00:14:12

Abraham. But when a Jew was hearing this, when a Christian was hearing this, they were actually from the original Hebrew Bible being reminded of the original agreement between God and Abraham, by the same exact even the closely related root letter. Meanwhile, lamb and mean lamb lamb in the Hebrew equivalent is actually circumcision. in our, in our world, it's actually a religion. So we let that be common for him. And by the way, that was these rituals were the way of someone being entered into a religion back in the day, it was these rituals that were kind of a form of Shahada or a form of, you know, baptism and that sort of thing.

00:14:13--> 00:14:55

Then the interesting thing about Ibrahim alayhis salaam that's worthy of note is that, you know, Ibraheem alehissalaam slaughtered an animal when the sacrifice was replaced with his son was replaced and law told him to sacrifice an animal instead, that became a sunnah of Abraham and a son and a mark of the people who follow the Abrahamic tradition. Interestingly enough, the Jews after 70 years after they rejected the silent Salaam and the temple was destroyed the second time, and from that point on, the Jews completely abandoned animal sacrifice. They actually no longer engaged in any animal sacrifice, the tradition of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was utterly discontinued and this is

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

something only restored and correctly restored by

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

The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, again a mark that that which you yourselves abandoned of Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam is being restored. So this was also a message being sent to them.

00:15:11--> 00:15:53

Then in these ayat we saw the return Babu Hummingbird I'm jumping ahead to earlier on, I'll get to eliminate in a minute, but I want to emphasize the word the real. The real, I told you means offspring and children's children's children's children, long generations down the road. They had offspring one of the other, but the word zoria in Arabic comes from Zara. And Zara means seed. And Allah azza wa jal told Ibrahim alayhi salam, that meant you know, that from his seed will come great many nations like the biblical account is the seed of Abraham is very important. And that like, particularly instead of using any other word, use the word Leah, which goes to Dora which goes to

00:15:53--> 00:16:35

seed, right, so there's these undertones that are really cool. And for anybody who was, you know, an astute student of the Bible, like a paying attention paying student of the Bible, these wouldn't be lost on them, they would actually catch wind of that. I, I've talked to you about the meaning of the word Ibrahim before I'll remind you, I bromham Avraham, there the three components of the word, it's not an Arabic word. And basically it means the leader of many, the leader of many, okay, and the Quran basically describes him as the leader of many when the Quran says the Ninja, Luca Lena, see, Mama, that I'm going to make you a leader over all of mankind. Paul is saying what that he leads the

00:16:35--> 00:16:58

circumcised and the uncircumcised, basically saying, the Jews and non Jews. That's what Paul is saying. And basically, Paul is saying, you don't have to be a Jew to now be a people from the people of Abraham. He was using that as a basis to then eventually talk about, you don't need to be from the religion of the Torah, to be a follower of Jesus, he was going to take that next step, but we're not, we're not going there. Let's talk about it in Milan. Now a little bit.

00:16:59--> 00:17:36

The word Emraan. I'll read something. This is from Abdullah, who looks at the origin, the origins of words that are not Arabic, that are found in the Quran, and traces their original meanings. And sometimes those meanings, you know, obviously, everybody's name means something your name has a meaning My name has a meaning. When Allah azzawajal gives names and local or mentions names in the Quran, sometimes they are physical, actual names. And other times they are titles. And it seems if you appreciate that, then you'll see that sometimes the names of certain profits, or the names of certain individuals, may not just be names may actually be a title or a quality that's been

00:17:36--> 00:18:17

described through that name. But we wouldn't know that because we don't know that foreign language. Right. So it's important to go back to the the original meaning of the word. So the name in Milan is originally Hebrew, likely pronounced omraam or Omron. So there's an M at the end or an entity and both ways that it's pronounced in Hebrew, in Hebrew, on an arm are interchangeable suffix or augmentative. Meaning at the end, you can add an arm or an and it's interchangeable, okay? a parallel to that in the in the Arabic language is into when you say own or an or in, right. And there are some tribes of Arabs that didn't add on and in they added in. Like there's an when was a

00:18:17--> 00:18:52

meme at the end instead of noon at the end? Okay, so when one of them came to the prophet SAW gentleman asked a question in their dialect. He said hello minim bill from CRM software. What he was asking was Halloween albery fiscally amphis suffered alarm was replaced with meme in his case, the llaman meme became and the Prophet responded and his dial is also no Lisa minim Bill phmc anthems offer which is his response to a Simon Albury TCM philosopher, but he replaced it with a meme. So sometimes letters are interchangeable by dialect so he's saying that the Milan or amraam as mentioned in the Bible are interchangeable.

00:18:53--> 00:19:01

Hebrew scholars considered the name amram to be a combination of arm, which means people and nature ordination.

00:19:02--> 00:19:45

From the trilateral I mean the closest to that in Arabic It may mean to be common, which is removed is also common in Arabic right? To be common, so common people and from ROM, which means to be high or exalted. The root letters equivalent would be our w. m Rao and meme to be high or to be exalted. This they concluded that Umrah meant the people of the Most High amraam literally means the people of the Most High. In reality, the name of ROM is the Hebrew equivalent of the Arabic name and muran in both etymology, and semantic denotation, because they are both of the same common root letters. I mean, this is important. So this is what the Jewish scholars believed it means people have the most

00:19:45--> 00:20:00

high, but he's disagreeing and saying Actually, I mean and law in Arabic, that's the root letters and aim and the law, the equivalent letters of that in Hebrew are the same and their meanings are the same. So actually, there's a common common nests between Iran as under

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

In Hebrew and as understood in Arabic, and this is going to play a role in how we understand this person's role in life also.

00:20:08--> 00:20:53

Amara, which means to serve, to wait on to look after to tend to, particularly a sanctuary or a house of worship, which is why Allah says Mercado del mushnik ina Ania muru massage de la same route origin from Emraan Amara Yamato, so, he says, it is not appropriate for people who do shake to be serving, that are maintaining the house of Allah in the Maya Maru. masajid, Allah, the One who maintains, develops, serves builds the houses of Allah, the massage of the villa, so Emraan in their tradition, and he in the Hebrew sense, someone who serves the temple, in our sense, the one who does, you know, run of the house or more of the house, actually someone who takes care of the house,

00:20:53--> 00:21:27

Amara, your middle to take care of to develop, okay? So, by the way, it's it's simple. It's interesting, this word is also used for how we're supposed to attend to the earth, who led the dialogue. It was dharmaraj confy ha, Allah says, He placed you on the earth to take care of it, to attend to it, you know, how you like someone who takes care of the machine is always looking for something to clean up, or always wiping things down, or always putting things in their place, like making sure the house of Allah is always perfect. This is the idea of the Army or is TerraMar, the modern Arabic meaning of Western models colonization, which has nothing to do with the classical,

00:21:27--> 00:22:02

which is also another reminder why classical Arabic should be studied and not confused with, you know, air tools, or something. They're worlds apart. You can't look at the meaning in an app and think that this is what the Quran is saying this is that those are not the same thing. In any case, in Ronda the house of Emmeline is important because in Jewish tradition, and then eventually, in Christian tradition, the early early Christian tradition, taking care of the temple was a sacred duty. And people the most special people in the community were assigned service to what we call the machine they call the temple, they call it the synagogue. But this was a special place. You don't

00:22:02--> 00:22:40

not just anybody gets to be there. And you know, they use the term priests of the temple, you know, the high priests of the temple priests not in the Christian sense, but in the Jewish sense, meaning the ones who studied the Torah and taught it and did engaged in the acts of worship and all of that stuff. Those people were actually in a sense people of Iran. And so the word Emraan is being used to describe this person. Now there's a there's quite a bit of a story surrounding him this person in the in the Bible, and he's about to be mentioned what Allah Allah Allah, Allah mean Emraan I told you is the father of Masonic Islam. I already mentioned that to you before, that Allah decided that

00:22:40--> 00:23:20

his house should be served, and his temple should be served by Mr. Now we have the Kaaba, right, we have the GABA, and at the time of musala, salaam, there was no like, you know, GABA sense, actually. And the temple was a moving thing. It was actually the remnants after masala Sam what was what was left behind by musasa in the tabooed, fee, Sakina tomura, become clear to me mataranka, Allah musawah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah refers to that tabernacle, they call it, they this was something moving and they would, their cover would move with them, that would move with them, but the ones who would take care of it and every time they stopped, they built a tent around it. And in the area of

00:23:20--> 00:23:48

worship around and all of that, that's actually the people of Iran. And so what what this this person, this name became sort of a title. And this is the other under an underlying theme that in Christian culture, we have to understand when somebody historically was important, then later on people called the person who plays the same role as them their name, like you are reliving that person's legacy. So lots of people were called Emraan.

00:23:50--> 00:24:34

And the family of Milan starts with Musa alayhis salam. And for the Jews, it ended and by the time the Saudis Salam came, the legacy had already died out, there was no more. There was no more of that legacy, just the Coriolis I mean, that's pretty much it, Zachary, and maybe even a Sunday they rejected, but alaris origin is going to now illustrate to the Jews and then tell the Christians that unlike the Jews, who rejected the final chapter of the family of Emraan, Allah doesn't, that Allah actually accepts Miriam as part of the Sacred Family of Emraan part of the same legacy not just not just from a genealogical like, descendants biologically, but you're carrying the same legacy you

00:24:34--> 00:25:00

know, for for Christians, being from the same bloodline is one thing, but actually also has some spiritual meaning. Which is why is the Korea and Islam for example, that only father Well, you know, and what the hell Why do you don't leave me behind alone. You're the best one who who gives inheritance and you're the best who who's left behind to inherit, but he actually he was worried in the hospital Medallia being worried. I'm worried about inheritance.

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

That will come after me. So this idea of family tradition being left behind those who will not just carry my blood, but actually also carry the tradition that's supposed to be carried. For the for the Jews that ended and Millennium is actually an embarrassment to that tradition. This is an embarrassment in our tradition, a lot out comes to the defense of Medea monnalisa. And in doing so, he softens the hearts of Christians because as far as the Christians are concerned, what the Jews have to say about Miriam and Lisa is horrible. It's a terrible thing what they have to say. And now actually the Quran is aligning itself in at least not in worship, but at least in honoring that

00:25:35--> 00:26:10

family and considering them part of the larger family of Iran. That's that's an important thing that allows it which ended here by by making reference to Allah and Ron, and I don't mean when the Christian When did you heard this? They did not even think of Miriam and Ron, they thought of everyone up until Maria because that's the part they reject. When the Christian heard this or like I wonder if they're gonna if they're gonna do the same things as the Jews did over all other nations of the world, that means the return Bible have been bad and then again, the reference that they are offspring seed one of another one law who sent me on our team, and allies all hearing all knowing

00:26:10--> 00:26:48

and you'll notice these names of Allah occur often when when people make the robot future generations. There's a theme in the Koran of a lobbying called Samia and lolly on the 10th of April Rahim Ali Salaam, clearly Salam here you're going to find, you know, the mother of Miriam seminary her when she's speaking about, you know, the future offspring generations coming generations and a lot of love email, hearing a lot. Being all knowing is an important name to mention. And of course, I think I mentioned this to you in the Baccarat series. Ibrahim Ali said I made this door. And when he was building the house along with his son is married. And actually, the biblical story is when is

00:26:48--> 00:27:13

married was born, even though Abraham was very old. He said in Hebrew, the words are Yeshua, he, Ishmael means God listens, meaning I prayed for a child. And God gave me a child, even though I'm in such an old age, and Yeshua is became Ishmael his name. And from it, we get it smartly, meaning literally semi Allah, Allah listens. But that literally became his name. So now we get to the story that the family of Milan, and

00:27:14--> 00:27:46

it's, it would be interesting reading for you. It's kind of a shocking read almost like a novel you're reading. It's called the infant Infancy Gospel of James. It's not considered part of the Bible, but an important document nonetheless, it's the only one that describes the birth of Mary, all the way to the birth and times of Jesus. Okay, and in some detailed account. So once again, it's called the the Infancy Gospel of James. And I'll give you the my version of it. My version of the gospel. Again, it's not considered part of the Bible. But when I read it, I was like,

00:27:50--> 00:28:02

how do I say this stuff? But I'll tell you the story, because I want you to know, before the Christians heard these IOD what was going well, what did they know? What were they thinking about the story of Sandy Solomon, and Williamson, Amalia, so basically, you have this man,

00:28:03--> 00:28:38

whose name is Joe Hakim, Joe him. And he's a very wealthy, generous, you know, man in the community in the Jewish community, and he always gives sadaqa. And he's always, you know, donating towards, you know, sacrifice and all this other stuff, sacrificing of the animals and things. And some, you know, priests come and tell him, some, basically scholars of Judaism come and tell him, you don't have a child. And if you don't have a child, you're not furthering the legacy of the children of Israel or Islam. And therefore, you're not allowed to give to charity. So they got jealous of him. And they made him feel like he's not, he doesn't have a blessed family, because he doesn't have

00:28:39--> 00:29:12

doesn't give charity. So he got upset because his wife hadn't been able to bear a child for a long time. And so he got so upset that he went out in the desert, set up a tent in the desert and just started worshipping Alliance, and Allah will feed me Allah will give me food God will give me and until he gives me a sign I'm not going to have I'm not going to come back because I don't let it give me a child. And this is how the story goes. We don't have stories like this and go on until now. But they have them right. How are having children is so important that he just left his wife and his wife started crying, and started saying I got over two things. I don't have I'm a widow,

00:29:12--> 00:29:52

even though my husband's life and I'm childless. And then she got she actually after he had left, she realized that she's actually pregnant. She's super happy. And then you know, he comes back and then he starts giving all kinds of charity. And then, you know, she eventually has a child and it's a girl. That's married. That's mme. So here, she's called the wife of Iran, Iran. Iran is not used as his name and he started he gave more than anybody else to build a machine or to serve. Right so put on uses, instead of using his name uses the word Enron and some of our alumni said no, no, the Christians got it wrong. His name is not Milan or his name is not Joe him his name is Milan of lives

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

correcting the Christians along Harlem, I would argue actually no allies using the title for him that he's he was playing the role of building them up

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

Or donating more than anyone else. And that's why Allah associated him with Amazon. And the other reason it's important to do that is because Allah is now going to finally give to him. What Allah gave him Ron meaning Emraan was given child who was given Taurat. And he's now being given a child medium, Whose child is now going to be given thought and energy. So it's the start of Torah. And it's the end of carotid ngl. It's the opening and closing of the revelation history of the Israelites. So it's Enron's family legacy completed, which is why the name is being used. So it's also important I, you know, because the Christians are being talked to, if you open up a number of

00:30:40--> 00:31:16

the books of the Bible, they begin with genealogy. So for example, Angelica norgate mentions it is certainly no mere coincidence that the Gospel according to Matthew also begins with matters of genealogy more precisely with two different genealogies. While the first one mentions David and Abraham, as the progenitors of Jesus, meaning the the the ancestors of Jesus are mentioned in the beginnings of the Bible. This is the section that's talking to the Christians. And it began with other new family of Abraham family of, you know, Emraan, genealogy, and then the guidance. So they, they, it resonates with them in the way that they even though that's written by people, it's not,

00:31:16--> 00:31:35

it's not a book of Allah, the books of the Bible, they're, they're documented by people. But regardless, they are familiar with learning in this way. And they use the style that they're familiar with and use it in the Quran, as I call it, because the genealogy too, okay, I'm familiar with this, and it kind of puts the guard down again. Now,

00:31:36--> 00:32:11

the next piece of this, the story, so she has this child, and then zecharia alayhis salam, you know, she dedicates this everybody's happy that the child was born. And because this was the most generous and most righteous men in the community. And so they're dedicating this child to the service of a lie, even though she's a girl, everybody is okay with it. By the time she turns 12, there's a convention, there's a meeting of the scholars and the priests, they say, well, we can't have her in the temple because she'll desecrate the temple, because she's a female, she can't be there. So they make an exception for her because of the Korea suggestion. They build a special quarter for her.

00:32:11--> 00:32:48

She's living there until 16. Then when she her menses come in, they said, Well, we can't have her here. This is their version, we can't have her here, she has to go. So we should marry her off. So they did some kind of a ritual. And they decided that this man named this is about money of now who's 16 years old. They say, well, this man named Joseph, we've chosen him to marry her. And this man was old. And he or he was already married. He also had a couple of kids grown. So they came to him and said, You should marry marry him. He said, She's 16. I'm an old guy, everyone's gonna laugh at me. I'm not doing this. I'll be the laughingstock of the Israelites according to the Infancy

00:32:48--> 00:33:24

Gospel, I'll be the laughingstock stalker of the Israelites. And they say, Well, okay, if you can't marry her, at least take risk. Because you know, we've all prayed and your name has come up. So we know you have to take care of her. So you take what the Arabic term is kafala, you become America feel you become our guardian, because we can't keep her in the temple anymore. Keep her as a virgin, keep her sacred, don't marry her. But you're still responsible for your basically her really her caffeine. So he brings her into his house. And he says, You stay here, I do a lot of construction work, I'm going to be gone building homes for some time. But you're welcome to stay here because the

00:33:24--> 00:33:56

temple has given me the mustard has ordained me to be your guardian. So you know, you'll be here and you'll be good. Okay, he goes away, in the meantime in the angel comes to, to Mary and tells her that she's going to have a baby and she says, no man has touched me. And he says, it doesn't matter. God has decided, you know that the one that will save the Israelites from their sins is going to be in your womb. And so she gets pregnant. And as she's her belly is swelling, she's getting bigger and bigger. It's you know, she starts getting worried about what's going to happen. What are people going to say? Anybody who asks, she says, no man has touched me. This is from God, this is from the

00:33:56--> 00:34:34

God of the Israelites. And then Joseph finally comes back. And he comes back and he's like, what have you done? What are people gonna say, I was supposed to guard this, you know, this virgin, and this was a sacred duty given to me. And you know, the same thing that happened to Adam and the certain serpent got to Eve while the serpent got to you. And he compares to that, that story, and says, what, what what kind of woman are you? How can you have been in the service of God's house all this time, and you have done this? You should be ashamed of yourself. And he's like, what should I do? I can't go and tell them that I got her pregnant. Cuz that meant means I messed up. And if I go

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

and report her as she's committed Zina, then an innocent child will be killed. I can't do that either. I don't know what to do. So he decides to take her away out of town into a cave somewhere. And so he takes Mary into this cave, and now she's about to wander riding on the camel. She says I'm about to give birth, the on the way to the cave. So he hurries there into the cave sensor there find some stranger and says I need you to help some midwife. You need to give help give birth.

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

To the child. And so they go into this cave, and she's giving birth to the child, and the entire cave fills up with light. And the lady who says, Whose child is this? And she says, I marry still says, I swear, no man has ever touched me. And she says, I don't believe you. And she gave her a physical exam and says, You're right. No man has ever touched you. I don't know what that means. But then, I was like, What is this? So anyway, and then then her name is I forget Swami Salaam or something like that, that woman's name. And then God speaks to Salome and says, you know, you have been blessed to deliver a child that will save all of the Israelites from their sins. And she's

00:35:36--> 00:36:10

like, how blessed I am, that I saw this miracle of light and all of this, and this is how he's born. And then in the meantime, the King Herod saw, you know, like finance our dream that a child will come to threaten his kingdom, Harold sees a dream that you know, a child is born, that is going to be a prince. And he's worried about this Prince. So he's going around asking, who's Whose child is this? That needs to be killed? And he's asking for zecharia for his son, and you know, where did you keep your son and interrogations happening? This is basically the story, I'm giving you the juicy parts that are like, Whoa, what is this? This is what they believe happened. Now we will the Quran

00:36:10--> 00:36:42

comes and tells a completely different story completely. And by the way, at the end of that story, you know what it says? This is James, I told this story at this time, and I decided to record this story. You know, as I understood it, or whatever he puts a disclaimer at the end, this is from me, is not the word of a lot. This is my word. He put that disclaimer at the end. And that's the key that I wanted to cite for you. Ally is telling the story from whose point of view, his own his own, not the History According to the Bible, according to Matthew, according to you know, according to James according to this according to that this is what happened according to Allah.

00:36:44--> 00:37:20

Now, Western scholars will say the Quran has a retelling of the story that we say the Quran has the actual telling of the story in the head, Allahu el caso sanhok this is in fact what really happened, you know, to know what really happened, you'd have to be there and the only one who actually was there is Allah who's still a living witness to what happened then. Right. So when he tells the story, this is what actually happened. This is the confidence with which the Quran tells the story. When the wife of Emraan when the woman of Emerald, Emerald, Emerald, why is she being called again, even though she's the wife of Joel him, because he plays the role of Evelyn, okay, when the wife

00:37:20--> 00:38:06

Emraan said, I'll be in The Nether to laka Murphy, botany mojarra Master, I am dedicating whatever is in my belly, whatever, whatever girl It doesn't matter. Whatever is in my belly I dedicate to you. As another the word another is being used my ijebu fringilla hot minute Dr. The word that is used when you owe someone a penalty because you hurt them, like you know, and nowadays, if you owe somebody money, because they want a lawsuit against you, that would be another damages owed to somebody because of harm you afflicted? Right, the penalty you have to pay that's called nothing. The Rockies used to call it Irish leave kybella fula lalibela Fulani another. This was used in the

00:38:06--> 00:38:32

sense that somebody owes me money because they damaged me they hit me on the head or whatever. This is why the word was even used specific damages were dedicated by a model de la Manuel de la Anima in their error for different damages that were done. They used to call it desert also. Right so if somebody had injury, broken bone or something like that, there's a specific amount that you they owe they set these prices on another when the Lila and Ebony Yahoo

00:38:33--> 00:38:44

or hotmail kaneesha Wilma Bedminster Carranza, now Viola is used for a boy or girl that has been dedicated to the service of a temple or a church by the parents.

00:38:46--> 00:39:21

Sometimes we do this in South Asia, I don't I haven't seen this done anywhere else really, we do it. You know, this, this child I'm going to dedicate to just becoming a half is or this child is just going to become servant of them, especially if they're born with some kind of a deficiency, then definitely dedicated This one's for the lava lava. chaiwala. Right? Yeah, like and I'm Korea, right. So this is another tool to Allah, but they don't do it before the birth they do it after the birth. And so there's an issue Okay, now give it to Allah, you know, so it's a disgusting practice, by the way, and Madalyn Murray, who, who told

00:39:22--> 00:39:59

me how the the overall meaning of the word is something that you owe, or and you fear if you don't pay it, that there's going to be damages. Okay, that's basically the meaning of Nether is something old, and there is a fear that if I don't pay it, there's going to be consequences. Okay. And from it came another IJA Boucher in Allah. Allah necesito Bhagwan to make to mandate something on yourself that is supposed to actually originally be voluntary, but you voluntarily imposed on yourself that you're going to do this yeah, life you get me married to this person. I will fast for 40 straight days or something. I don't know how that works. But whatever. If you did that, then it's

00:40:00--> 00:40:25

Fasting 40 straight days was not mandatory on you. But since you talk to Allah and said you're imposing it on yourself, it became lodged on you. Now it's held against you. Okay? So women and men Netherlands in the leyenda, Mahamaya, Vitamina, Bonanza, whatever you spend whatever oath you make to a law that I'm imposing it on myself, Allah knows it. Don't play around with it. There's a hat. Just kidding.

00:40:26--> 00:40:38

Don't do that. So don't even get into it. Because the at the end of that ayah and Dr. O'Malley Valley Minami nazar wrongdoers, don't get any helpers. So don't mess with the lines make these promises.

00:40:39--> 00:41:14

So the cotton, cotton Aveda, anytime you make a dedication like that as an act of sadaqa, or ibid, or anything else when the Leela moto to Moto Z, and Nadella is what actually that you give. So what we're going what she is giving a lies, whatever child she has, will be dedicated to the service, there were some people that were just pulled out of the house, they were just there to do nothing else. They were just going to study the book of Allah and teach the book of Allah and worship online. That's all they were going to do. So this is the the nether that she made for the Cabal Mini, then accepted from me. So you'll notice here, there's an emphasis on women,

00:41:16--> 00:41:58

the father has been mentioned, but really the one talking is the mother. And the father should be deciding what should happen with the child. He's the Guardian is the provider, what actually who's making the dedication, the mother is making the dedication, and then of course, what is born is a girl. Right? And for all this time, you know, for the Israelites, especially lineage is from the Father. lineage comes from the Father and the father's was important allies removing that from the equation and saying to Allah, actually, the real lineage is faith, and gender is irrelevant. And in a sense, he actually even honored that people can be from the family of Emraan, meaning the family

00:41:58--> 00:42:39

of the Prophet out of Musashi salon, even if they're a girl, and they're about to have a child that's still part of the family of Emraan that's still part of the same legacy. You would think, you know, when a girl gets married or a girl has a child, then the child's identity only belongs to the one that gave the father who gave the name. But the the the lineage of the man is different. The lineage of the man is actually for both genders. And that will open that up really beautifully by describing the wife of Enron and then later on, Miriam said I'm gonna do so in Nina how to like mfe botany mojarra mojarra is an important word it can Holly son lipolytic, la serie foofy, Hawaii eg

00:42:39--> 00:43:15

someone who is Korean Arabic means freedom. Right The lira kabocha free and neck that's the Muslim used in the Quran. Mahabharata is the symbol for what it means whatever is born of me is going to be set free, set free from what from all other obligations, this child will not have to worry about where the food is coming from, the child will not have to worry about where the clothes are coming from anything. The only worry they will ever have is worshiping you and serving you and and teaching your scripture. That's it. That's the only thing that I want them to do. Every other expense will take care of Mahabharata. You know this idea of delete, I've seen it happen in some families. I knew

00:43:15--> 00:43:19

a young man I won't mention because he'll get embarrassed. No young man in some country that shall not be named.

00:43:21--> 00:43:58

That brilliant memorizer of Quran brilliant reciter of the Quran, brilliant, a student of the dean, like photographic memory, brilliant teacher, like he's just talented, and his family's multimillionaires, they're, you know, they're all kinds of businesses. And they saw that this kid is just, he's just special. He's just he's got this talent. So they pulled him out of the businesses, you're gonna study Islam full time, and your house and your family and your account or whatever you don't ask for that. You just take care of your needs. We're not gonna you know, he doesn't wait for a paycheck. He doesn't do any of that. When he travels. He just says I need to go here to do our

00:43:58--> 00:44:23

thing. And the family just does it. And he doesn't live a lavish life. He lives a very simple life, and by his own insistence, but the point is, people in this family decided that he should be more How about like he they see in him something that serves a lesbian, so you should be mohalla that's an important lesson here. I know I'm taking way over my time. But this idea of a leader is important because nowadays you have people that say, hey, I want to do Islamic work. Can you make me mohalla?

00:44:26--> 00:44:39

Can you pay for my education? Can you sponsor me in this? Can you cover all of my expenses because I'm going to do some work? I'm going to double work that's why can you get me a business class ticket? Can you put me up in this hotel and because I need to be moderate.

00:44:40--> 00:44:52

Dude, you don't decide that. You don't choose yourself and nominate yourself as someone so worthy of a less Dean service that others should, you know, go find me.

00:44:53--> 00:45:00

Hold on a second. However, you know, that's actually a form of self righteousness that we should be aware

00:45:01--> 00:45:20

When your service is so powerful, and so recognized that you yourself were people came to you and said, you know what you need to stop doing what you're doing, just do this. Don't worry about that. Pull yourself away, you need to focus on this. That's when that's your mohalla not Mota motor home, there

00:45:21--> 00:45:34

is no room for elite for a reason. And if your family decided that, like your family can do that, your family can say, You're nominated, you're gonna do this, we want you to do this, this is all I want you to do. You know,

00:45:35--> 00:45:47

there are some remarkable scholars around the world remarkable people are those families doing this for them, their their family supporting them, because they see them as Mahara. But don't declare yourself.

00:45:48--> 00:46:05

Don't do that. Don't ask anybody else for money to do, you know, for your own thing, if you can stand on your own feet to the best of your ability to do it, you know, to do it, and I've seen it, unfortunately. And I've actually even people came to me and said, Can you sponsor my education? And this, that and the other? And I did.

00:46:06--> 00:46:07

So okay.

00:46:08--> 00:46:15

I hadn't really thought about this much. And I didn't want to give them this talk. But I, you know, somebody motivated, do it. And guess what happens? Nothing.

00:46:17--> 00:46:18

Nothing happens.

00:46:19--> 00:46:32

They disappear into some this, that or the other. Why? Because the when you start from the wrong foot, and you start in the take the first wrong step, then you can't just recalibrate later on, you have to start from the right place. You know,

00:46:34--> 00:47:06

I'm reminded of the late Dr. Oz Hartman, medical doctor, successful medical doctor, and his family basically told him, and he told his family, I'm not doing this anymore. I can't. I just got to do what Allah has given me a gift in millions of people affected by his work. And just left his career behind. My teacher, Dr. of the semi, my Arabic teacher, was a dentist. And he has a couple of daughters, his family to provide for and like, responsibilities, but just an absolutely incredible teacher.

00:47:07--> 00:47:18

Just a really remarkable teacher, and just, he was just pulled away from it. Like, it's not even you decided, it's just this tsunami comes and takes you in this as you're going to do this work.

00:47:19--> 00:47:34

And she before the child even born says, I'm not even gonna let my child see the other side of the life. This is the only life you'll know. me like I'm not mafia, mafia boss anymore how to run for Taco Bell Mini, then accepted from me. Notice, interestingly, she didn't say except from her,

00:47:35--> 00:48:13

except from me, because you can't control anybody else. First and foremost, you could dedicate and serve someone else and help someone else. But that doesn't mean they'll do what is needed more than anything else. Yeah, Allah. Make me accept me. And by the way, if you accept me automatically, she's included. Why? Because if she's truly Mahabharat, and if she's truly another, and you accepted all of that, and you won't let my another go to waste, and you won't let her tell you to go away, so just accept from me, for the you know, for Taco Bell, Mini, and NACA interests me on it, sir. And, by the way, COBOL also, an implication of spiritual implication of that is when Allah accepts

00:48:13--> 00:48:16

someone, then they become acceptable to others.

00:48:18--> 00:48:57

COBOL from Allah is horrible, have people around you and understand that the COBOL of Allah doesn't work the same way the COBOL of people works, meaning the accepts when a lie accept someone. And when people accept someone, sometimes it's two different things. Sometimes what happens is in their own lifetime, nobody accepted them. But because Allah accepted them, their acceptance lasted many generations after that, the people who insulted them, the people who put them down disappeared, and their honor outlived all of them for centuries and centuries. What happened with Miriam herself, humiliated in her lifetime humiliated, accused? And what happens with her thereafter? honored until

00:48:57--> 00:49:35

Judgment Day? Right? So the when a login school, his school is much bigger than what a human being can ever give. He gives that acceptability that's much wider, and we elect ask allows origin that we he accepts all of us. That's a couple minutes, so she begs a lot except for me and accept wholly from me. Well, mainly, that's the most legitimate form the combinatorial form, except wholly from me. You are the ultimate one who hears everything knows everything in the car into a semi random, like I was mentioning before, these two words these two names have a lot of courage, especially when they're asked about the future of our lineage about offspring occur, you'll find these names occur.

00:49:35--> 00:49:59

May Allah azza wa jal accept our draws from us and May Allah azzawajal help us identify people that should be Mahabharat that should be dedicated to the service of Allah, Xena and support them in whatever way we can barakallahu li walakum Quranic Hakim, when it was lacking a number of texts in the Eastern Church present marry as belonging to the lineage of her own that's also an important note that marry belongs to the lineage of her

00:50:00--> 00:50:33

Allison, why is that important granulator on color, light yellow sta, heroin, it's going to pick up from that tradition that is known to them in their scholars. Whereas, you know, especially in Salt Lake line, the two stories of Zakaria or rather the story of medium and academia and then musalla, some are been fused together. And the way this fuse fusion has happened is actually very similar to the Gospel of Luke. So it's picking up from the Gospel of Luke and then you know, correcting that narrative. So those are the few other Christian undertones that I wanted to make sure you guys are aware of barakallahu li walakum Solomonic
