melissani of cocoa leaf and hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Rasool Allah, Allah Allah, he was a man. So
once again, this is Mr. Tanaka. There are a few things that I wanted to share about the parallels in this story and the story of SRT Salaam, Before we continue, and also some commentary from our Maha soon on the history of the mother of Madame saddam and how he how that has been mentioned as in right and wrong in these ayat,
the first thing that I wanted to mention that Allah chose the family of Iran.
And in this family, you have two individual roles that are very important. In the original case, it's the mother of Masada, his Salaam and the father of Musa His name is Milan, as I keep mentioning, and in that story, there's a baby involved. And in this story, though, there's also a baby involved, Miriam is going to have a baby, in that story in particular, allows Oh, it'll save that baby, by means of his sister whose name is Miriam. And in this story, it's his mother, Miriam, who is going to come and actually stand by the baby and defend the baby and face, the society, that child received the turret, and then this child is already Salaam is going to be receiving torrid
energy, actually, when you look at our, our Torah trilogy, so it's actually the family of Iran parallel not only in that sense, but also in the sense that at the end of the journey of a new Israel, it's almost the same events repeating themselves, a child is involved, Revelation is involved, a miraculous saving is involved, dangerous involved for the mother, you know, and a character named to two times characters named Maria, are, are involved. So those are some interesting parallels between those two sides. Even I should actually even argue that perhaps Maria, the mother of Lisa was named after medium like, inspired by the name medium of the sister of
heroine. So there's those parallels between the two stories as well.
The other interesting thing about this ayah, where she says, she's going to actually make data and say, I seek refuge of a love for my child, I asked a lot to protect my child when, you know, when mom was born, she said, For Miriam and her offspring. So she says, we need to have our reata how we're going to see those I add, the word Maria is a repetition of what we just read, Juliet undergo Hamburg, Allah chose,
you know, a new and the family of Ibrahim and the family of Emraan. And they're all offspring of each other via was used. And now the word V is being used by the mother. Interestingly, the word through the Koran and generally in Semitic literature is not used for mothers, it's used for fathers. And it comes in the context of fathers having children. And also naming children is something that fathers do, traditionally. And in this story, you've got the term Maria, her offspring, her lineage being discussed by the mother. And as a matter of fact, the child is also being named by the mother. She's being named by the mother. And so in doing so, there's a subtle
lesson being taught to us about what it means to have a lineage. there's a there's a lineage of family, family name, descendants, genealogy, and all of that that's attributed to the Father, we take the last names of our fathers, and so on and so on and so forth, even the Israelites from where she belongs. They're called Bernal Israel, because their father His name is Islam. Right. So, the father is where the identity comes from. But spiritual lineage is different from the paternal lineage spiritual lineage is something else.
Spiritual lineage, the man and the woman, there's no difference. So even though she's not the she's the child is not going to take her name. But she's still part of the Luria, that Allah describes as alibre him and under Emraan. Right. So that's a really powerful distinction Allah has made between how we think of lineage, and the worldly sense, and how there's actually such a thing as a lineage in the spiritual sense, that goes beyond last names. That has nothing to do with you know, the the family names that we take.
So now, having said that, I want to share with you just some things that have been said about the mother of Miriam from our traditions, I read to you and shared with you some of the stories about her and her husband from the biblical account and from the Christian text account, even if it's not biblical, if it's extra biblical, like the Infancy Gospel that I read from yesterday. This comes from Imam Razi and he's attributing this to Mohammed igneous Huck in the oma Maria makanda. My makani absolutely hawala. tashahhud. The mother of Miriam could not have a child until she became very old. What kind of human Lily shall attend ferrata Iranian Foreign
Minister Khalid Khalid.
She says that one day she was just sitting in the garden and she saw a bird fly around, and it emotionally moved her and prayed for a child. Like even these birds can have children offspring, they have a nest and they have eggs, and I can't have one yard lot. Give me a child like you've given these birds. When I didn't read to you from the Gospel of James, the Infancy Gospel is actually this exact story. She was in a garden saw birds and started lamenting to God. So and this is found in urbanists hub, Mohamad minutes, hawks literature, so you can see how they were not our scholars were not unfamiliar with biblical literature, like they were, they were in contact with
this stuff. And a lot of that made it into RFC. We may not know where it came from, but when you do outside studies, you see are there's parallels between what they're saying and what these other sources are saying is really interesting. Well, so then the other piece of this for the Atlanta and yeah, Bella Whelan, for Hamlet be Marian. So she made out to a lot and Greg Legrand her child, and she became pregnant with Miriam wahala in Milan and Milan died, her husband died for them out of Jada too to Lillahi mojarra. And when she knew when she found out that her husband has died, this is also interestingly kind of alluded to in the story that he died, that she had a child and by that
time he had already died, okay?
That she decided to dedicate this child to Allah exclusively a demon will muster to be a servant of the master because that's what her husband wanted. Her husband was constantly giving and serving and now that he's died, she wants his legacy to be carried on by the child and that's why she dedicated him in this way. Or the suppose that boy that she was going to have called hacer el Masri in my father Delica be wilhemina law. Well, Willie, will Allahumma Fernandez Kamara him the heavy filmin arm for Anima Anna Delica Amina Allah will eliminate envy. Kemal Hama Hama Llama Llama la Musa for focus of the Federal phillium Melissa Viva, he's basically saying Allah put something in her heart
to want to dedicate the child. It's not just an idea she had to carry on the legacy of her husband, but she actually wanted to dedicate the child because Allah inspired her to do that it was a form of Revelation. And then you know, Yvonne prazi makes a distinction between different kinds of revelation revelation that comes to prophets and revelations that comes other than profits called Ilham inspiration, the kind of indirect inspiration. And he compares that inspiration to what happened with the mother of Musa who was inspired to put her baby in a basket by Allah. Right. So that wasn't an idea. She came up with Eliza which basically told her to do that. Okay. And so the
same way she has this inclination and our heart allies telling her to put this child in the dedication of Allah service. The other interesting thing of benefit of a semi random I didn't mention yesterday, you know, we saw the return by Mohammed Babel, Allah who sent me on a limb, and then in this ayah that we read yesterday for the Cabal, mini inika and the semi regarding, except for me, you are the one who is a semi alien. So both the is number 34 and 35. And with the name same names of Allah, the hearing the knowing, and they're in context of the law and of having offspring. So the thing that I wanted that I didn't highlight before, what I did briefly mentioned is when
Allah talks about prayers for offsprings a semirara, name comes up, that's what I did mention. What I didn't mention is a semi makes sense in the Casimir Nabila semi Odin, my master hears the prayer, my master hears the call, what's Aleem doing their limb is actually a balancing of our our thoughts about da Of course when we make da we pray that Allah listens to our prayer. Allah listens to our worship. So there are your calling the purpose of literally in language when you call someone, what's the point of calling if the person can't hear you. So the word semi literally has to do with the call. Right? So there's a connection there that's logical and obvious, but alim isn't obvious.
Name is not obvious and also Aleem is adding a new dimension to
The idea Allah doesn't just hear the prayer, you know how when somebody is in a bad state and you say make, listens, right Allah listen that Allah listens everybody needs to hear. But what's this, Allah knows that's in addition to Allah listens. You see the words we say and the requests we make, are coming from our tongue.
But even though we're saying some things with our tongue, the state of our heart is not known.
Right? So allow, and he says he's a semia Elohim. In reference to the law, he's actually listening to our words, but also knowledgeable of our hearts.
It's also knowledgeable of our secrets and our actions because you know, some people can be doing some terrible haram things and then making drama.
And nobody knows about the terrible things they're doing. But they're making Allah knows that you're making this drama, but with what character? Like, what are you behaving like Allah knows, and yet you're making the law. So when we call on Allah, and we call him SME or galim, then we're actually acknowledging to Allah your ally, I'm asking and knowing full well that you know what, what state I'm in. And after recognizing that you are, you know, everything that I do, I need to be in a position where I can actually be asking you, I need to be in a position of service to you humility to you, Toba to you. And that's a state of my heart and only in that case, am I really in a true
position to be making the law to you. So similarly, more important pairings like that, because they are an act of confession to Allah, the request from Allah is in a semia and the confession to allies in LLM and both of those go hand in hand when we go out to alemi. Allah make us aware of that when we make dog to him. Anyway, so Allah wa tada and when she finally gave birth, and you know, finally llama is actually a long duration of time. This is of course, because first of all, she became very old until she could give birth so lamal is not just you know, if means when llama is finally when then finally when and suggests so many years went by and she's an old lady, and of course, then she
was pregnant Finally, and her husband was happy, but her husband didn't even get to see the birth of the child. So this also made the pregnancy feel extra long and eventually when that pregnancy came to an end, and all this time she's anticipating that this child that's this boy that I'm going to dedicate to Allah service is going to you know, to carry that name and she's happy that she gets to do that for her child. It's a it's a I don't know if I put this excerpt here but
you know the in their culture we don't have that in Islam in archery is not actually a dominant part of the culture but in vanilla in there were some practices that were very common that are not very common in Islam. Okay, so in in the final show the argument of those who lost sight of them but in Bhanu Swahili are much more common. And one of the more common things was you know, in our Deen it's our right and when when it need be was Jihad feasability la these were the things that we dedicated our sons and daughters to, to teaching or to spreading the message of Islamic cetera Manu Salah l we're not a nation of our they were not going out and preaching the message to other nations. They
were actually not told to do that. We're the oma that's told to spread the deen right believer and he will spread the religion even if it's what I believe Israel was not like that they were supposed to just preserve Islam for themselves. That's what it was command to them was also also what comes specifically to benissa inform a nice line. So then if somebody wants to serve Dean like, you know, in our our day and age, when somebody says I want to serve Dean, they're thinking about Dawa Delta Muslims Delta non Muslims, right. But in their case that were met, or dedicating yourself to service meant that I'm going to take my child who usually when they grow up, they serve the family, they
take care of the farm, they take care of the animals, they take care of the business, etc, etc, they become the father's backbone, I'm going to take that most valued treasure the child, and I'm going to dedicate that to Allah. Okay. And so especially this was done with sons, because sons were committed, considered the biggest asset and commodity sons grew up and stay in the family, they carry the family name forward, they, they do they provide all of that service. So this was their tradition of showing dedication and service to Allah is the biggest sadaqa I can give is my own child. And they will do that in early childhood. Some actually even say that all the profits of any
salon were dedicated like this early on, and when they reach mature age, when they become teenagers, then they're given the hero, they're given the option. Do you want to stay in service? And you want to stay committed to religious service? Or do you want to live a different kind of life now? Do you want to just go join regular life again, and they have to make that choice at that time, whichever choice they make, they commit to In other words, if they if they decide they're going to stay in service to the temple, the mustard of the time, and teaching the thought and learning the thought and all of that, then that's what they do until they die. That's all they're going to do. And if
they decide that they're going to come back and serve, you know, and you know, go to the farm or become a trader and all of that, then that's what they're going to do. But that's a life choice, but early on.
Some of the children were dedicated from childhood on to be groomed for that purpose from from the very, very beginning. This was a tradition that they had. So it's in keeping with that tradition that she made that pledge to Allah. So when she finally gave birth for llama will that Allah says Allah will that ha notice the words ha and this is a lot of talking now. So when finally she gave her birth,
and the word her referring to Miriam, and notice that in the previous I saw the word Mohan, Mohan is the masculine word, isn't it? And so she says it Nina love to Luca Mafi botany Mohan because she's expecting a male so the male word is used a child that's a boy that's been freed up from all service. But when he gave when she gave her birth, when she delivered her on it she then said I'll be my master My God in the world.
I have given her birth a girl. I'm literally translating oh my goodness, I've I've given birth seriously I've given birth to her a girl I got to seriously from India.
I said it twice because India and then what?
And then her is how and then a girl her shock is captured in ni
and she's talking to Allah
now it's interesting that she's talking to Allah like that if I'm Ross even says for Lika Delica da da da da da
She didn't say that because she was telling Allah by the way Eliza girl
because she says Master, I give birth to a girl.
I just wanted you to know that what she's doing the Allahu Allah, Allah Masha Allah is to superior to need her to be to inform him was the current Delica less ability that one possible interpretation of this is that she meant she said this in this way to basically apologize to Allah. Yeah, I know, I made promises and pledges to dedicate my child to the service of the masjid. But
it's a girl. It's her girl. So she's kind of saying, This is her humble way of backing out of the pledge that she made so passionately, in the previous ayah. Right. So that's one way that this has been read that she her reluctance is captured, and her shock is captured. And in dust, it's an apology to Allah, that I can't dedicate this child, obviously, because it's not going to work because it's a girl.
The other interesting interpretation of this is that instead of a note, and there, there are gradations of emotion, the first shot, the first emotion is shock. And then after that, there's actually even a kind of acceptance.
Like, Master, I've given her to a girl, as if Yala, you knew what I was going to give birth to. And you decided that this should be a girl. And I'm honored. Like instead of being thinking of it as something less, she thinks of it as something more something great. That's just happened. And so both dimensions of it, and perhaps it's not one or the other, it's perhaps one than the other. Because sometimes you first hear the news, you're like, oh, and then like, there's some good in it, alas, some good in it and your thoughts about it evolved, and that that evolution is captured within one sentence in the ayah. So she says, Oh, you know, it needs any will talk to her.
And then Allah adds Willa, who will be moderate, and Allah knows better what she gave birth to what she delivered.
Now what's that sentence doing there? One implication of Allahu Allah will be marveled at the star lemonly whether the HA, this is to inspire, and to aggrandized to make a big deal out of the child that she's given birth to, Allah knows what an incredible birth she's given. It's as if Allah is saying what an amazing child she's had. And Allah knows better how amazing that child is. What did he learn the hobbit country Valhalla, and was also declaring, I knew better about that child than you did. And when I align inspired you to pray for a dedication a lot already knew it's a girl. And you had no idea but I, Allah says, I knew better than you that I did. And I inspired you anyway, I'm
motivated to make that prayer anyway. Well, my nahu Allahu Allah will be shaped and then he will not work. Well that will be my Anika be human.
And he's also said that Allah knows better what she gave birth to and how this baby is going to be related to such great things in Islam, and what grade status she's going to have what an incredible role she's going to play. None of that is known to the mother that's only known to Allah. Allahu Allah who is
Delilah mean. And that alone will make that newborn and the child that our newborn will eventually have a miracle for nations to come for all nations to come. Well, he adjusted Jonathan bionic law in Washington, Philadelphia.
has a lot and she has no clue that that's the case. The mom has no idea that this is the great plan of Allah, that this woman is going to become a role model and an honor for believing women until the day of judgment. And her son is going to be given this miraculous honor of you know, her grandchild, he started his salon. She has no idea that all of that's going to happen, therefore, she's in shock, or she's regretting. Why did I make this pledge in haste? Well, they lie to me. But there are other readings of the same ayah Willa, who will be moderate. There's another pillar of this Iola, who will be moderate to
low Anna will be moderate to if you read it that way. Then what is what are two mean? I delivered? meaning she says, what are your life's a girl? Allah knows better what I delivered. I'm not saying I'm informing you Allah. I know, I know, you know better than I delivered a girl. So she's humbling herself immediately after she just spoke in a kind of way. You know, for for Arabic students. There are two kinds of sentences in rhetoric, there's Hubbard, and in charge, right. And Hubbard is when you inform and in shy is when you're speaking out of emotion. When you use in usually, that it actually suggests Harbor, meaning you're informing someone, that's when it is used. And when you
remove another, it's typically in shock. Now she used in the out of shock. But she saw she used the slope of this style of cover, even though she meant in shadow and sharp means you're speaking out of emotion. So for example, just to make this easy for everybody else, if I say to you,
what a great day. What nice weather even though we have nice weather, but you know, or it's hard today if I just told somebody or the weatherman said in the news, it is hard today. Right? Then he's informing me that it's hot today. But if I stood outside and nobody's around as hot as hot today,
same sentence, but am I informing anyone? No, I'm actually expressing my emotion. Right? So sentences, the same sentence could be for informing purposes. The same sentence could be for expressing your own feelings. Now when she said I've given birth to a girl, oh my god, it's a girl that I gave birth to. She's not informing. She's only expressing her emotion but the style of sentence Yeah, my master I've given birth to a girl can also be misinterpreted as her informing Allah. So one reading of the ayah is Allahu Allah will be mobile data. And a lion knows better what I gave birth to meaning I'm not informing you yet, um, you know better. And she's kind of
backtracking from what it could be misconstrued as. And so that's, that's the other interpretation of it. There's a weaker narration that doesn't make it
to the seven you know, readings that are authenticated umlazi attributed to a boss I can't figure out you know, where he's getting it from, but it's there, it's mentioned that it's also been read by some will be ma T.
malo alum will be on it. And that interpretation would be a lot of talk to her and said, Allah knows better. What you gave birth to woman, basically is telling Allah is not talking to her and saying, Yeah, you just said you had a girl alone knows better what you had. Okay? So it's, it's directly talking to her. But the more common reading and the most common reading is what we read mostly in the and the most have, which is what are the movie marveled at? That's the most common way of looking at it. So Allah knows better when she gave birth to an Allah soldier when he says that
there's another switch.
And that's what they said, the Kuru can another complication in this ayah when they said that Kuru can answer
the common translation of this ayah his boys are not like girls.
The male is not like, the female and then people write a thesis on the male is not like the female here is how boys are, you know, better or whatever. You know, boys are not like girls. And there are the problem with that is when we take a statement from the Quran, that is part of an IRA, within an IRA.
And within that is playing a particular role.
And then we pretend that it's not playing a particular role, it's actually a universal truth for all humanity to bear.
You know, if, if, if she's speaking, and what's her context, she wanted to dedicate this child to the service of the mustard.
And in that service, who suitable boys or girls typically, boys, and in that context, she says, a boy is not like a girl that the male can't, the male can do what the female can't in this role. We take that and turn this into a thesis a book about how boys are and by the way, boys are not like girls has not some deep wisdom that you could not have known unless the Quran revealed it. Like, wait, wait, what boys are not like girls.
Hold on, let me write that down like
so when something so apparently obvious is said it's obviously alluding to something that's not so
literal, it's alluding to something else, it's talking about something else. So I'll share with you just some of the things that have been said about this. But I'll go to a mom Rosie first who says, Why does she say that the boy would have been better in this case a boy can do what my pledge not better but a boy could have done what my pledge suggested. How can a girl do that? That's one possible meaning of the boys. The male is not like the female was Subbable Hadith of the women would you Ha ha ha. And nasura, whom Allah who led us to the coolness in us that their their law, their current tradition, the religious tradition didn't allow for girls to be dedicated to the service of
the machine only boys. So that's one reason with Sandy, another Korea, Soho and yes, the middle Anna said multimo
Delica Lima, Lima kandalama heels was our
you know, our Linden is one that women get get their menstrual cycle. And in that time, they're in a state of impurity, and they shouldn't be in the masjid and boys don't have that issue so they can remain in the masjid. So that's another reason why this couldn't have happened. Without his zaccaria sloppily quwata. He wishes that he said Medina onza in Alba, la taqwa said that the boys can be strong, and they can do other things like building, repairing the roof, like other, you know, lay manual labor. And it's not appropriate for girls to be engaged in kind of that kind of labor. Because it's not, you know, the, you know, a man is exposed, and people are walking from underneath
and things like that. So he says, Well, you know, boys are, it's more, they're more strong, and they're suitable for more manual kinds of work, which wouldn't have been suitable for a girl to do in the temple. And the mustard would be another client who I feel had more or less the Latinas with a secondary can offer. And a man can meet with different people, and engage and teach. But in that, in that, you know, in the tradition, if a woman is going and socializing like that openly and teaching, then it would have been looked down upon. And so she didn't have that kind of freedom. We'll miss another layer in a minute. And the last mile
for how the hell would you tackle the footlocker
fee has done? So in his view, it's because again, she can socialize the way men can, she can go visit a family and nobody bats an eye. But where are you going? Where are you going here? Where are you going here, a girl will be asked in you know, in any traditional family in New Orleans, somebody, we're fairly fairly more modernized many of us. But you know, if you go to any traditional society, when a girl gets to a certain age, she doesn't just say, um, you know, she just grabs the keys and walks out of the house. And nobody asks where you're going. No, where are you going? Whose house? Who's there? What do you mean, your friend were there? Who these friends? How many? Does she
have a brother? Is he home? How old is he?
Right? You don't just let the girl go wherever she goes. There's questions to be asked. But if a boy says I'm going to my friend's house and say Hey, does she have us does he have a sister
How does she how many people in the household what's their social security number shoe size? What's their
don't do that. So with girls there's a lot more questions protectiveness. There's an added layer of protectiveness. And you know the the people that are going to be doing this kind of service there in public service, they have to go out on call and help people and you know, perform a janazah or help the sick or pray for them and be on all kinds of situations and some of those situations may not be appropriate for a woman and so for that those reasons she expressed that a Decker you know Lisa Decker Carranza, but another reading of the same is actually a number a little Maqsood when Heather column theurgy, who had the hill onsala Decker, which I prefer this reading actually in her speech.
And Allah speech, this could be a law saying it and it could be her saying, I personally lean more towards she said it in one way and Allah said the same thing in another way.
So she said it is how can this girl do what a boy is supposed to do? A boy is not like a girl. That's that's what she says. But Allah said that meant this in another way. The boy you thought you were going to have is nowhere near the girl of Legends gave you
the boy the girl right? This is not his smell jeans, you're thinking of as a llama. Now who you know manhood. It's a specific lamb. You had this boy that he can occur in your mind this boy that you thought was in here when he came out? It's that girl and that that boy that you had in your mind could never have even come close to this girl.
Now to understand that parallel you know in, in rhetoric, when you say a is like B or A is not like b A is not like me. I say for example a Kia is not like a Ferrari.
A Kia is not like a Ferrari. I don't say a Ferrari is not
Not like a Kia
whichever one is superior is actually mentioned after that is not like
so in the Quran for example, creation is not like Allah
creation, it's essentially Lisa commit cliche commit Lee Shea. Nothing is like his example
alized superior, whatever came first in these not like sentences is inferior, that's inferior. There's one exception to that rhetorically, you should know this exception. The exception to this is when you're talking about what you know, a is not like B, when both A and B are the same group.
Like, for example, you are not like the rest of the students.
If I say that, and I'm kind of saying you're better,
or you know, he is not like the rest of the teachers, then you're saying that teachers the best, but they're all teachers, they're all part of the same group, you understand. So this is how it's used, for example, less than NACA, Hadley milanesa, the mothers of the believers are told you're not like the rest of women. They're women also. But they're in a superior place. But other than that, when you're talking about two separate categories, boys and girls are separate category, a line creation, separate category. Qian, Ferrari separate categories, separate species of car altogether. When you do that, then the first item is inferior and the second item is superior. So when the ayah says, The
male The boy is not like, the girl is actually saying that boy you had in mind is nowhere near like, this girl that Allah has given you. She's way superior. She's way better. This is the status of Miriam in the words of Allah, which is exactly identical to her own words, how can this girl, you know, basically, the boy would have been fine. But how can this girl do what a boy does? Allah took that same statement and reversed it in its meaning by attributing it to himself. So it's attributed in a sense beautifully both to Allah antimonium Islamorada with two different meanings while concurrent at the same time, so when they said the caloocan onza. Will Lisa Decker Allah de una mata
looby Cal and then there's a third application and that is that she actually finally Allah just like Allah put in her to pray for a baby. And in her initial reaction, how can this baby be good enough for that cause? But eventually Allah even inspired her to accept what Allah knew, meaning this girl is better. And so Imam Razi talks about this and says, in her mind, eventually what happened under hakala as it is as though she finally said as the karma, Luby's boys what I wanted well how the hell on sir but this is a girl, but this girl is Mahabharata lotta Allah. This is a gift from Allah meaning my desire was a boy but Allah His gift is a girl when they said Zakat Olivia Guna Mutt looby
calusa Allah t mo button Lila? And how can something that I wanted a boy be better than something that's a gift from Allah? A girl?
What a beautiful way to think I wanted a boy. But Allah decided a girl How can my wants be better than the gift of Allah? Everyone who ever has a daughter should think like this.
Everyone who ever has a daughter, how can what I want because some people just want a boy, you know? And as soon as it's not a boy,
next time, like
how can what I want be better than what Allah gifted? You know? And so she says, well, however, Columbia new Natal Kamara cannot muster a copy, modify it, modify it jolanda It is as though this statement of hers is illustrating how this woman was completely immersed in Allah's glory.
The greatness of Allah was never lost on her. A Halima can be under Maya follow her beloved hygroma, you read you read the whole Abilene FC, always aware that what Allah does what the master does with the slave is always going to be better than what the slave wants for himself.
That's what she was aware of when she says, Well, he said, the Kuru cannon,
Willow Alamo Ba ba ba,
ba. And so and I've mentioned her her husband had died and typically the tradition was that children were named by the father, but the father had died. So she it was her job now to name this child. So Allah azza wa jal actually goes out of his way to mention we're in Nisa made to harmonium and it is certainly it's it's me now. As you know, it's it's in nissa Mater is actually not just for is Allah to shock, but it's actually now only I'm left to do this, nobody else can do it. My husband's not there anymore. So I'm in fact the one that's going to have to name her and I'm naming her Miriam. I'm giving her the name mediums in nice Me too. How many Muslim is the original letters for for
You submit a smitten there's actually in complex grammar sometimes what happens is you have something that started mythos while seen and meme but when it moves from one family to another, then the wild moves over to the end so it became somebody you submit desmi at and so the root letters are not seen meet see meme and wow, it's actually while seen a meme. Those are the original meanings. Okay, but there's some argue that no, you can go back to see me meanwhile also, which is su mu one and so mu means elevation. I have elevated her as money am I that's one possible sharp meaning but possible, I have elevated her by the way that's where the word sama comes from high elevation. Okay.
So I have elevated her as Miriam or I have named her Millennium Okay, and what some actually means marks or signs or qualities. So I'm dedicating her qualities to be that of a medium so it's actually medium is her name but the word medium means certain things that she's hoping become part of her personality. Okay, so that's why she's naming her medium.
Well, he has a bottle of oil and avoided Colombia de la dama. Hakuna Matata, min and Ron cannot cannot cannot see Holly humbly Hannah memoriam, Hannah was her name St. And they call her in Christian tradition. We intercede English we call her Hannah. Okay. And that her husband had died, which is why she took on this task for the delicata volatile on the smear to how another another delicato Allahu Allah, that the norm was for founders to do that. But she did that. Okay, now let's talk a little bit about the meanings of the name Medina because Allah made it a big deal that actually mentioned this part of the story, like a child was born, okay, move on, but no child was
born and the name is Miriam. So you'll find some names in the Quran. Allah goes out of his way to mention the naming, right, his new yahia
as mercy release of new millennium, like going out of the way 10 mentioned the naming of someone. And those names become very important and the meanings behind them become important because Allah is actually highlighting those meanings.
So the name Maria has often been misconstrued as, you know, basically taken on a Greek form of the Hebrew name medium. So the Hebrew name is actually medium and medium is the sister of her own and Moosa, the girl that followed along the river when the basket was floating. Her name was medium. Okay, medium comes from the root letters in Hebrew that are the closest in Arabic to Mira meme RA and yeah, Mara Marie Mira and Mama Ratan is used to argue debate to rebel. These are the meanings of the word, she's given that meaning we believe that that name applies to her because she defied even the greatest King and went out there and, you know, broke their law and said, I know someone who can
take care of him, and basically lied to the cops to get her family in. And she was defiant like that in the face of this military campaign. But they actually take a different meaning of medium the original we're talking about not a married mother of Jesus, we're talking about medium sister of Musa right so the Jews actually say that she was called that because she's a rebel. And because she was a rebellious sister curse curse with leprosy for questioning Moses, His Messenger ship and criticizing his marriage to an Ethiopian woman. It's not an Ethiopian woman. It's actually he married in Medina and, and he married an Arab woman, but for the one who saw him to accept that she
was from Medina, and she was an Arab was far worse. So they went with Ethiopian. So Quran clarifies that issue too. But anyway, in numbers in the Bible Numbers, chapter 12, one to 16 you find her basically dissing musante salam. And so they say she's rebellious. That's why her name was medium. So it's not a good name to them. They think of it as in a bad sense. In any case, the interesting thing is that at the time of this RNA, salaam, Hebrew was not the language. Hebrew was one of the languages language of Scripture, but the language dominant now among people was actually Aramaic.
And Medea is actually not Hebrew. It's actually Aramaic. It's it has an Aramaic origin. And it's made up of two parts Mary, and
Mary and Mary is actually God or Arab. in Aramaic, and m is similar to Arabic like Amma, if you've ever heard the phrase amatola
amatola is the feminine version of Abdullah What does Abdullah mean?
slave of Allah amatola is basically in Aramaic, but
I am elevating her to a servant of God. Amaya. I am naming her is servant of God. What was the purpose of Nether that she's going to be constantly in the service of Allah, literally someone in the service of Allah and enslaved to Allah for his service and his service alone would be called a medium
Aramaic. And so that's what she named her child, the spelling of Mary's name. And in the four Greek gospel, I'll skip this part I'll just go to the end.
Amazingly, the sentence when she says,
I have named her Mary
would have been literally translated,
muddy Amma Mariama, I have named her a servant of Allah Lord, a female servant. That literally would have been the translation Robbie, you know in nice me to have a master, it's a female servant. I'm okay with that. You know what that then the rest of the ayah makes sense to this girl is like no other boy and it's okay. She can be a female servant of Allah. Even though everybody else is supposed to be a male servant of Allah. I named her and I dedicate her to be a female servant of Allah. It's her dedication has never now reaffirmed just by the name that she gave me and said I'm gonna do okay, so it needs me to harmonium. And then she adds Finally we need to hobbico was Rita
homina shaytani r rajim. What amazing foresight this can only have been inspired by Allah. I am dropping her and I am I am leaving her in your protection.
I am leaving her to hold on to you.
I am entrusting her to you to cling on to our from our interview with Robert I've explained several times now is when meat clings on to the bone. Or was is when something sticks to something and doesn't like let go seeks protection. And so I am I'm putting her in your service, not just physically she's in the house of Allah clinging to the house of a lover she's clinging on to Allah himself or to her because I'm pulling her in and so that she holds on to you for dear life for protection. Because she's talking to Atlanta with Leah to her and her future offspring. Wait a child with riyaz was to be a boy with Korea. But this girl special, even her children are going to be
special she's making the odd that she's going to have children also. And those are her offsprings. She doesn't know who they're going to be she doesn't know is only going to have one child. But she's been dedicated Ludia to her.
There may be a you know, I'm getting ahead of myself. There are two views about this is the dominant view and the minority view, the dominant view is that essentialism is coming back. The minority view some put doubt in the notion that a Sunday sermon is coming back, I am personally of the view I share with you ahead of time, I'm personally of the view that he is coming back or at least in light, not only of the ahaadeeth I my my area of expertise is that Hadeeth literature and Hadith criticism is a complicated subject, I go to scholars that I really rely on for Hadeeth work, and go and spend time with them to understand the authenticity and the interpretation of the text,
especially complicated texts. My study is more focused on on. And it seems to me that in current studies, the return of essentialism, is mentioned in implicit ways. But implicit yet undeniable as far as I'm concerned, like they seem to be strong enough hence, a lot as I was inspired this woman to do several things very accurately. And one of the things he inspired her to do accurately is to say that I'm dedicating this child in your service and not just this child, her future lineage. Her offsprings plural lulea. Now we only know of one of our children, which is pretty sad. But if we accept the view that the sun is coming back, and in those narrations, he actually has children, he
gets married and has children, which is a continuation of her through Ria.
And, you know, so so there is a, you know, a connection to the wording that she used in a very in a very subtle way, possibly linking it to the future life of these artists around after his return. So in Riga was reata Habiba. It's also interesting that recently, salaam is always in high complex situations, you know, when he was here on Earth, and he was surrounded by schemes, shaytani schemes that were trying to kill him. And when he comes back, things are much easier well know.
When he comes back, and he's again, like directly facing the closest thing to Shetland, and you know, flesh form so there's there's a lot of that parallel to when she says, I'm dedicating this child and her offspring into your refuge against a shaytani r rajim. That I haven't ever done a to c discussion on the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. Even when I taught the Fatiha I started with Alhamdulillah I haven't done I've written an article on on the muskmelon. I didn't really talk a lot about our Billahi min, Ash shaytaan energy but a couple of things, because it's come up now that I've mentioned in passing that I think everybody should know the word Ashley bond has two possible
origins Shabana or shaba. Okay, so the root letters are either Sheen, Bond
noon, or Sheen, yeah and Ba, okay, those are the two possible meanings. shabaneh If you accept shut off or shut on, then or Satan, like that's where it comes from, actually means distance. The one taken far away, the one taken far away from the closest he was closest to Allah. And he was distanced from Allah. He was not rude, he was cast off, right? And that's what makes him distant. And he his job is to make others distant from Allah. So that's what he is, and that's what he wants to do. He is buried, and he is Mubarak. He's far away and he wants to take people far away from Allah. Okay. And tamiu Malan alima? Right. So shaitan Why would you need to Latina to be on the
Shabbat and tamiu, Milan of Lima, those who follow desires meaningful? Do we have the devil, they want you to deviate Far, far far away, you know, Milan burrito the Quran will use far away misguidance the idea that the more you follow a plan, the farther you get from Allah, that comes from shantala.
Interestingly enough, it's a direct opposite of onward. Because if you're if you have the other or this the other of Allah, you're holding on as close as you can to Allah, you're clinging on to Allah, and you Okay, on to Allah, keeping him as far away as possible. So he's not just away from Allah, you're doing by doing so you're keeping him far away from you. Okay, so that's the idea behind shodhana. The other meaning of shaitaan is shade from shade, which means jealousy and anger, and hustle.
So shutdown is extremely jealous. And he's extremely angry and his anger comes from his jealousy. Right? So those are the two things he wants to instill into people so that they can do their can commit evil crimes. In the case of essentialism, it is actually jealousy. He knows more thorough than the rabbi's do. And that's making them very angry. It's making them look bad. It's making their position weakened in society. And so it's jealousy and anger the way of cheban that that created the animosity towards a Saudi Salaam. But anyways, he says, I dedicate myself I dedicate her and I entrust her in cleaning on to you and your protection, and in it along with her her offspring. What
I noticed was the reattach macadam is not in the Riu. Ha, was Rita bigger. It's in the bigger word Rita. This is well, this is Maria is along with her offspring, not just her her offspring too while I'm at it. So she adds that in just like you know, let's head way the pharaoh Abraham, aka a dominant Wait, what is Mary, I can smile at the end, along with this Marian. So here this along with her future lineage and her future offspring from the Shaitaan. And then the next word is regime and the regime is from it's the federal form for them of rule meaning more Joon Raja Mata pelt, to throw stones, Raj mumble ebenso Taka, right. So the idea of regime someone who's been shooed off, cast
off, the one who is stoned as he comes near, not only is he away, as far away, every time he tries to come near he shot it, you know, the idea of forts and you know, fortifications that have catapults back in the day, nowadays, you have secure buildings with snipers on the roof and stuff like that. So if enemies come near their shot away, you can't even approach the vicinity. there's a there's a secure, like perimeter, not just the building, but there's a secure perimeter. And the idea of the perimeter being maintained, is captured inside regime. Like he can't even come near without being monotone. Every time we say our OV Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. Not only is he
distanced because he's meant to be sharpen. He's also pelted far away from us. So he stays away and he's hurt. Every time we say that elokim is a constant, you know, so we he's already distanced from Allah, but by when us when we say that he is distance from ourselves, so she dedicates him, she dedicates her child and her offspring from that protection. Interestingly enough, you know, the in blue slide, the punishment for adultery, and having an illegitimate child was being stoned. Right, and it's kind of a strange foreshadowing that I'm keeping, I'm asking your protection from, you know, from this one who's supposed to stay away and notice the the theme of being distanced the
theme of being stoned. Right, she Miriam had to go away.
He had to go away from the letter to have her child. And then when she came back, she was worthy of being stoned according to some but even though they will treat me like this, so long as I'm holding on to your protection, that that's all that matters, because the only distance that i the only distance that must always be there, and the only curse I don't want ever is to be close to Shetland regime. So this is the protection that alarm that we can offer. And there's another beautiful kind of foreshadowing inside of these words. Now, man, I was supposed to do more than that, but I'll at least start off the next idea for the Kabbalah haha
Her master accepted her
beautiful things you know, for this is why we study Arabic the Kabbalah Kabbalah Why? Erickson Kabbalah Kabbalah, Kabbalah so if you say a mushroom What luck and you say the Kabbalah Kabbalah and you have here Tata Kabbalah boo ha be capulin there are two things that are in the Arabic sense unique one is instead of the Kabul Allah use the word Kabul the expected grammar is the Kabbalah hora boo ha taka bulan Hassan but the other interesting thing is there's a bar there for the Kabbalah hora Maha napco Buddha and Hassan but be a Buddha has and so there are two unique dimensions to the language of Allah accepting her prayer that she asked Allah Miriam's mother asked,
one Allah accepted her now, the Arabic for accepting something is Camila Cabello. To accept. The Kabbalah is the emphatic forum to completely wholeheartedly accept. But there's another dimension to that word. I'll read actually what the mamarazzi says because he captures this beautifully. And I love that the Kabul we're in a father mother corner Illa who you feed know our own nautical love. I love
the word the cabin. If you add it, like if I said that I learned to hold the aluminum
as an example, actually means I learned it by working really hard.
But I learned I totally it's not just I totally learned it. You totally learned it is already in Thailand. Because already mobile havalim to when you edit the lumen, you're saying I went I made a lot of effort in learning this. So there's a there's a piece of the kind of extra effort or burden that you took on to accomplish that when you add the most cruel mutlak of this family of the feral family. Okay, the haleema the Hollywood dasara, the sabalan Oh man, he went out of his way to show patience. It was an extra effort for him to show that patience, that wouldn't have been appropriate for Allah.
That Allah accepted completely is good. But ally accepted completely. And it was a pretty tough thing to do. That's not acceptable to say for Allah. So the couple that wouldn't even work, and you would have to say comun
and so that's that's the that's the so I'll just read it so you guys can hear what he's saying? Well, we'll find out who you feel monokuma Allah wa Tada. It's actually natural acceptance, not an effort based acceptance when you say the word baboon for the company you feed a genuine Viva la casa mata karakul you feed another Lika Lisa Allah Allah tala. He first mentioned the Cabal because it's serial, totally accepted and wholeheartedly accepted. It completely accepted our prayer. Not one part of our prayer was not taken, which is why it makes me go back to the word Zarya and say, am I accepted? Or not just even.
Right? Because Allah says he totally accepted everything she said. And then on top of that, he says, and then he use the word kaboom, because that's the more natural word to use. And they accepted it. But then what is the bar doing there even now shoulda mentioned that the bar here is addition in additional kind of oberliga to even the helmet luck. And what it does is it creates a suite of pseudo a picture. Allah accepted her. And in addition to accepting her prayer, Allah added another acceptance that she didn't even ask for be Kaboul. Allah accepted her, along with another beautiful acceptance.
Another beautiful. So there's an acceptance that she didn't even imagine that is coming as part of her prayer that allowed us to protect protect her and her offspring. And that maybe is a suggestion to you know, she didn't know that she's going to have risala in her childhood in her offspring, that a messenger ship will come in her offspring. She didn't know that she's going to have a ruhollah you know, Robin Hood, Lisa, in a salon in her offspring. She didn't know that she's going to have the book of Allah. Come a book of Allah coming in her offspring. that's those are beyond imagination. You can ask give me a good child, give me a prophet who's gonna ask that. That's beyond our capacity
to ask, you know, that's something Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam asked in all of my lineage, at least give them one messenger. Right? And he or she didn't even know. And so Allah says, in addition to ask answering her prayers, I gave her way more than that, because wulin and then, of course, the acceptance of the salah and revelation coming, and then the special role of silence and I'm not only a being a messenger of Allah, and one of the little Azmi men are Russell, one of the great messenger messengers of the most phenomenal resolve, you know of the five he's one of the five. Then on top of that, to him also be the confirmer of the final messenger mobile verschuren below suelen Yattaman
back this macho man, like I am going to tell you that his name is Ahmed. He is the one who actually every messenger knew the final messenger is coming he was given the name to he was given Akhmad
He was told to be that and then to not only be that, but to actually have the honor of coming back, and confirming the result, although, as I said, I mean, these are honors that are beyond, you know, one after the other after the other. And so in illustrating that a lot as communion has been a beautiful acceptance, and an addition and acceptance that's far more beautiful than imaginable. And that's really where you appreciate the use of the word hussen here, because risala is the most beautiful thing, Revelation is the most beautiful thing. So, you know, for the Kabbalah, who have become Boolean Hassanein. And so I'm going to leave you with this next phrase, well, the baton has
again to play on Masada.
in Baton, I'm better in v2, in Baton Rouge, and better Nevada, Nevada is to grow a plant when a plant grows, we call it Nevada, when you grow a plant, when you're the farmer, then you're doing the act of amateur, an amateur and about you grew it. When he says I'm better ha he compares mediums, Illuminati, how to grow in the growing of a plant the maturing of a plant. Now you have to really, this when this kind of imagery is suggested, you have to take pause, and forget about million for a moment, just think about a plant, just don't think about money, I'm just thinking about a plant, what does a plant need to grow properly, it needs something from underneath, it needs good soil.
And a plant can have a healthy plant cannot grow if the seed itself is corrupt, the seed has to be good, right, and the seed will be an imagery of the parents there, the seed is the provider of the seed, then the soil has to be good because if you have a good seed, but you put it in bad soil, then it's not going to grow, right. So the soil isn't, is a representation of the environment. That's the environment. But that's not enough. Even if you have good soil, and you have good seed, you need water. Water is basically the nourishment for this plant. So the way that this plant is provided for has to be halon has to be clean, has to be pure, has to be safe, and that needs to be there. And of
course, she's already asked Allah azza wa jal for protection from all evil, evil, corrupt elements. So the environment is going to be safe, and that is that she's provided is going to be safe. Now the farmer can provide water, human beings can provide water, but there's something human beings can provide that a plant still needs, which is what the sun,
the sun, the air, they can't provide that that comes from Allah. So there has to be an external nourishment. Light and by the way, in the Quran, Revelation is this described as light and angels are creatures of what of light and she gets visited by angels. And so the parallel between a plant and her are very powerful. So she saw a lot allowed her to sprout a lot louder to grow as a plant, by the way. Now, let's take pause for a moment. Think about this. Let's compare this to the Israelites.
A good number of the Israelites? Do they come from good seed? Sure, they're descendants of prophets. Were they given a good environment? Sure. Allah gave them a free land. Were they given nourishment of turret? Sure. Well, they're good people around them. Sure. And all of the ingredients were there yet yagoona been added at the killing profits without any justification.
All the things that I just mentioned that a plant needs to grow properly are there and yet they don't grow.
She has all those ingredients. But just because all of the ingredients are taken care of doesn't mean the plant will come out right.
The plant has to show some initiative on its own.
Sometimes the seed is perfect, the soil is perfect, the sun is perfect and something just went wrong. This one just didn't grow any tomatoes. Something just have I don't know what happened.
Something's missing in this plant. It just doesn't absorb the sun the way it should. It doesn't take into water the way it should. It doesn't take advantage of the soil the way it should you get what I'm saying. And so Allah says, Not only was the best environment provided to her, Amanda, he added in a button. The button is actually a reference to her own initiative and taking in absorbing the environment taking the best of the environment, taking the best of the teachings that were being given to her because you could put a child in a madrasah you could make a child memorize Quran, but if the child is going to take the leadership on they could be in the most angelic environment and
still get messed up that will the surrounding won't matter we think if you just provide the right surrounding everything's okay No, the individual themselves have to show some initiative they have to grow they have to mature they have to take the next step and that's captured in about had the word when I'm working when I'm back in Baton Hassan and then embark would have taken all responsibility off of her a lot did his part in making sure that she sprouts and grows and matures and by the way, that
maturity of a plant one more thing that I didn't mention, the maturity of a plant is important because one it takes a long time.
So her tarbiyah her maturing her upbringing, and her maturity is not something that has happened overnight. It's something that was developed over time and which speaks for her character all along, she's been growing and maturing. So it's not like you know, all of a sudden she became rebellious as she was accused.
And then finally, and finally, if a plant does fully mature, it gives fruit, it gives fruit and if it's a good plant, it will give good fruit. Well, what better fruit than a salad is?
Right and what better spiritual fruit and the lessons of Southern and the lessons of tawakkol and the lessons of you know turning to Allah, that she taught us that were still the fruits of her life and her struggles we're still eating from those are those are fruits she left behind. So that's the the parallel to this in brief language, on letterhead and a button. And then of course, has an and again COBOL Hasson nebat has an there's a parallel made between the two and this is where I end with that allows origin is now mentioning or describing to us before it was her daughter of offspring that was accepted in the most hessen way along with the Hudson, a beautiful acceptance. And now
there's a beautiful upbringing, actually a blessing. This is her the answer to her prayer also. This is in addition to her prayer that allows it would have provided her this new button Hudson Rockefeller has a career. I could keep going but we got to pray. So barakallahu li walakum ikeymonitor anyway, er, combine it with the family.
