are all the wilhemina shavon watching the league I mean
in Hawaii no he won at talladega him, una escuela mal home au homea kulu meldonium wa Taala de him in the Stasi moon in,
in Catalonia Namu in La Jolla. bashioum keybie Kelly met him in his small messy pneumonia man was he done? Yeah. Well, he
was, he was he wamena al mukalla been rubbish. He suddenly were suddenly Emily looked at me listening Of course nikoli but hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam, ala alihi wa sahbihi h nine ama that once again everyone so Monica.
So here we are discussing Ayah number 44. After Allah azza wa jal told him Salah Manali had to make to have kuno to soften towards Allah to make such that antimycotic who are along with those who make reform which was a subtle way of telling her not to abandon the community at least in the longer run. Now Allah interjects, actually the conversation is is so you have is what is called Attila melodica to Yama, Yama, namaha Sasaki that was an ayah number 42. And then that continues is called melodica to Yama, Yama, Yama, Yama, shiraki Colima. It's actually one conversation when the angel said this. And when they said, when they said this, when they said this, when they said this, it's
actually one scene. Notice also and I will get ahead of myself, when I am number 42, begins, what is call it. But if you look at iron number 45, it begins his collar, there is no law, which actually is a very clear indication from a from a grammar point of view, from a linguistic point of view, that it's not discussing two different scenes. What if called, what is called this, and when this happened, and when that happened, right, so those are two separate events. But when there's no one in between, it's actually continuing the same scene. So what's happening so that, as I suggested is iron number 42, which continues the conversation in 43, then 44, is something separate completely.
And then 45 goes back to that scene. So what's happening is in number 44, a lot so just stops telling us the story of mme and takes pause and makes a comment. This is an accurate. This is actually an interjection from Allah, what what this is what this is, the purpose of this, to help you understand it is actually kind of like in a teaching setting, like when a teacher is teaching from a textbook, I'm going to teach her teaching a lesson. And they're in the middle of a paragraph. But before they go on, the teacher stops, and says, you know, what we're about to read is really important. pay extra attention to this, like there's a, there's a pause before we get to that,
because you know, students that have been listening, all of it is of equal value. But it is as though what's about to be said is of special value. So we need to take a pause. And we need to appreciate that what's about to be dropped is really heavy. So take note of that, and then move forward. The other important thing here is sometimes when a lesson is mentioned, and perhaps a student may not realize the value of it, they may not see why it's so important. And that's why sometimes it's important for teachers to say, you may not see why this is important. But I need you to know from experience that you will eventually see it. And I'm telling you even if you don't see
it, this is a really big deal. what I'm telling you is a really big deal. In other words, a teacher's job is not just to deliver information, it's actually to guide student attitudes towards lessons. What are my impressions? What is my opinion, what are my feelings towards this lesson? the ayah in question that let me just translate it briefly for you. So you appreciate that nicotine ambarella. Baby, no, he like this, this look at the opening of the fire. That is from the events and the news of the unseen that we have inspired to you Prophet sallallahu Sallam that's obviously known, all of what Allah is saying is about labe you know, you really owe highly, that's all already
there. Why stop and say that, saying that is significant? Because one, this information what is being described about the chastity of medium Sarah monada? And what's the, you know, from an Islamic point of view, you might think, Oh, this is only for the Christians or it's not really for us or it's not how is this guidance for us? Allah azzawajal is telling his messenger honey, subtle Islam. This is from it's a big part of your new Buddha. Notice the word Amba. And that from New Buddha, right, this is from the news that only a prophet can get from the unseen. Now the other issue here is how is this unseen? of that that all of that what Allah has told us so far about Miriam's mother
Then he told us about zekeriya. He told us about yahia. Then he told us about the angels approaching medium salmonellae how all of this stuff, this isn't the unseen, this is happening in history. And in one version of or the other, it's with their books. One, you know, dimension of ambarella haev is that the real events that happened as they actually happened have become unseen. Nobody actually knows them. We only have deviated accounts of what's happened. And so it's become even matters of show who can become liable. For example, what happened with the people of the cave as an interesting story? There are no historians that will tell us what conversation were they having inside the cave,
because there's no one documenting that. And they themselves are not going to come out and say, Well, you know, when we were younger, we said, one of us said, Let's go get some food. And the other one said, you know, be careful. We have no access to that record. That's the that's unseen to the world. until Allah inspires it to the prophet SAW Salem, and that becomes a matter of something we know now it's not from the home anymore. So one implication of this is these private conversations that were happening. This law of Zakat er de Salaam that may have never even been heard by anyone. It may have just happened in his heart, who now Lika de aza karela bajo probably Milan Korea Santa
button in la casa mia de, it's something that no human being may have ever heard before. The way that he made it at that very moment what he felt and that's the that's the way Allah records history. You know, a historian can record this happen, this was said that happened that was said, these are the names these are the locations information. Allah will record what someone felt,
what how they turn to Allah, the humility they had, the time at the time they were making such that they were private, most private moments, things that a historian can never record a lot of records. And so Allah azza wa jal is inspiring His prophets, I saw them and through him, us to appreciate that and vatika also, as opposed to whether there is a smooth Charlene Kareem Danica is Polish Albury, all of that Yanni, kulu, Danica, this is kind of an HTML here. That meaning it's far away that it's very this far away in the sense that this is not something that you had any access to this information was very far away from you. And it's come from a long distance to you. The other
interesting thing about Alain, is that, you know, a lot of what really happened, even if some of that is truly known among the Christians, and among the scholars of the Jews, they hit it. They kept it hidden, they kept it from the eyes of the people, and they made it a part of deliberately. And it is as though Allah is saying that, you know, in a sense, marketing, right, what was what was hidden away. And so Allah is saying to his messengers, I said, and I am giving you news accounts, and I'm giving you detailed, exhaustive stories, events, of what has been kept locked away in their records, that they don't really touch that they don't really talk about, and only the highest of them have
access to it. You know, like, I was baffled by this, just contemplating on this today. We're living in a day and age when I'm studying an IRA and I say, you know what, I want to know what demand was, he said about desire, I want to know about him. He said, October, he said, but you know, if lucassi Rahim Allah said,
I just click, click, click, as there are I have my, I look back at my bookshelves, and I pull out the sun alarm, or I pull out like even concealer I pull out, and I have access to the stuff sitting in my living room. Like it's baffling that these people will travel 1000s of miles to get one page of the 1000s of pages that somebody wrote, and in the religions before us or the Islam before us, the Islam of the benissa. In actually these books, the scholarship this research was classified information. It's like you walking into the Pentagon and saying I want to see the secret files, you know, the ones that are labeled top secret, I want to see those. This was actually kept very covered
up. It wasn't open access to everybody. I mean, think about the kinds of records and archives that are sitting there in the Vatican today. Well, that's not something that general Christian audience will ever have access to. They don't know that stuff. They won't have that stuff you understand, but Allah azza wa jal opened up what even they people of their own faith didn't have access to these records, and allow open that up to his messengers of Allah. Hi, Daddy coming in as I knew he like we are inspiring a team. Now, the difference is also also noteworthy to appreciate saying noon Zulu lake
or Nakuru, la or LA quiero kabhi. Me no biggie. We're informing you of it or we're sending it down to you hear he says we're inspiring it to you. What he in Arabic is actually a subtle, subtle gesture. Let me tell you what, what he actually means in language in everyday language. If I was sitting here
One of my kids was there. And I don't want anybody else to notice, like, you know, okay, make it even more relevant in Pakistani culture. We go to people's houses, and our kids are supposed to sit like they are statues like hands on their, on their knees, and
but you know, kids are kids. So they start running around making noise, dropping stuff going crazy punching the host, house kid at least. And you don't want to yell at your kid in front of everyone. Because that's considered like, you know, what kind of family are we? We need to show proper decorum? So the mother does,
she says that, like she's smiling, but actually, in that smile, and in that is the death penalty.
And the kid actually, if he's smart enough, he sees her smile, and her grinding teeth that nobody else is supposed to see. She's just kidding.
It says that. And he knows, oh, I'm gonna go back into code.
You know, or, if the kid is really dense, you go, mom, hi. And he keeps keep doing what he's doing. But when you give a subtle suggestions, subtle hint, and somebody's supposed to change their behavior, that's actually called
a very, you know, it's very shallow, nativa very, very subtle kind of indication to somebody. Allah is telling us that even in these ayat, Allah is not telling us the exhaustive story of dates, names, locations, and you know, full accounts and the year in which had happened, and none of that he's just kind of dropping very subtle, hence, you don't go on, it's not like the Bible, that's going to go into exhaustive detail. That's one of the implications of the word we hear these from the events of the unseen, were dropping some hints towards, you know, he not just inspiring them towards you. Were giving some hints to you know, he like, Well, my consolidate him and you certainly, were not
you were not at all, in their close knit presence that they have not in the home, right, leather is also closeness. So in their close majorities in their gatherings, when they used to make their special decisions, you were not in their company. If you own a llama home, when they were throwing their pens. Now we'll talk about the throwing, I'm just translating it for now. I wanted to help you appreciate at least this opening statement first, that you were not there. And I'm giving you this access. First of all, this is a lot as always, you're not just talking to his prophet alayhi salatu salam, he's also talking to those who believe in some other version of the story of the People of
the Book, as if telling them you weren't there either. I was the only one that was there is we the only one who can speak authoritatively about what transpired with nary what transpired with zaccaria. what transpired with the mother of Miriam. And eventually what the whole point of this what transpired with Isa, they said, I'm the only one who can speak authoritatively about this is the one who was there. And that was me. And that's his way of telling his profits lies. And of course, you weren't there. And by implication, of course, the rest of you weren't there either. Will you think you were there? You have more authority than Allah. And tomorrow, lumen Allah, you know.
So this is a very subtle, beautiful kind of expression that is getting us ready for what is about to be said, of course, the story of Miriam and her mother is important. Korea's important, but he has his own visit of the angels is important. But the real deal, the the million dollar question is the birth of Jesus. Right? That's where the problem lies, isn't it? There There are two issues with the scientists and his birth and his death. Those are the two issues. They're the ones that change the map of the world. These two issues. So before it like gets to that point where he talks about the birth of lease or lease I mean, what really happened from a law's point of view, a lobbying the
witness to what happened, he sets the scene for it. First, you need to take a step back and appreciate allies, the one talking and this is from the news have that's been hidden away, also suggesting that really what happened has been hidden or hidden away, that it's been muddled. It's been it's been dirtied, either from the money or inside considering him illegitimate, or the Christian sides, turning him into a God of some kind. Right? So both of them have deviated from the truth. So the only one who has the truth left is Allah Himself.
Something I didn't mention, I'll take a pause from this applause from this pause that Allah azza wa jal mentioned, and something that I is outstanding, and I don't want to skip over it. Because, you know, some of you might know some of you don't know, I'm what I do at Vienna. When I when I study these, I'm part of a group. So there's a group of us that studying together and some of the harder questions we posed to each other, and do research together and shift sohaib as part of that. Sharif Nava who wrote the book, divine speech with me, as part of that there are some other, you know, individuals that are a part of that and sometimes we consult, you know, how these experts and others
on more difficult issues and get their help. But one of the things we were discussing was actually a little
Discussion ensued about the word saved. For your hair. It sounds like it's an interesting word that's used. He's a leader, like, among the descriptions that was given to him was that he's a leader. And we had our, you know, you know what that could imply that he wasn't just a follower of the silence lamp that he had leadership qualities in and of itself. And we've, that's that's some of what has been said even in our tradition, but there's actually some new research on his career that has been cited and some of the folks that are on the group are actually, you know, Christian studies and Jewish Studies experts, and they are in touch with the latest research on this stuff and papers
and so they quoted some things and I want to share that with you now in Sharla. Just about him, so I'm taking a step back. I'm talking about the leadership of who yahia Elisa, okay. The fact that john the baptist, which is what he's called right, had a lot of followers and commanded a lot of respect and authority among the people could be relevant to the Koran calling him say you then outside of the New Testament, we have a testimony about the about john the baptist from the first century. This is important now from the first century Jewish historian Josephus. Okay, so he's writing about Yaki Elisa Lam in the first century, this is what it was from him. Now, some of the
Jews thought that the destruction of Herod's antipasto army came from God, and that they that very, very justly as punishment of what he did against john,
that was called the Baptist for harrowed slew him, who was a good man and commanded the Jews to exercise virtue both as to righteousness towards one another, and piety towards God, and so to become to sort of come to baptism, for what the washing with water would be acceptable to him, meaning we'll do purification, if they made use of it not in order to the putting away of some of their sins, but for the purification of the body, supposing still, that the soul was thoroughly purified beforehand by righteousness. Now when others came, or many others came now, when many others came in crowds about him, for they were very greatly moved by hearing his words, meaning
yahia Allah Salaam used to deliver speeches and huge crowds used together. That's his sacred nature, right a leader people follow. Herod who feared less the great influence john had over the people might put into put it into his power and inclination to raise a rebellion. For they seem ready to do anything he should advise, thought at best by putting him to death to prevent any mischief he might cause and not bring himself into difficulties by sparing a man who might make him repent of it when it would be too late. Accordingly, he was sent as a prisoner out of heroin suspicious temper, to macris the castle. By the way, when someone is in capsulated, or cut off or imprisoned, they're
which is also related to the word hustle. Right? So you didn't wanna hustle and so interesting sub subtext there, and was, now the Jews had an opinion that the destruction of is this army was sent as a punishment upon harrowed as a mark of God's displeasure to him meaning for killing yada yada So then, of course the Jews did not recognize these are this is a Jewish historian but he's still recognizing who you are here are the seven saying the destruction that came later on was a result of them killing
the Quran calling him Hassan is really fascinating because some biblical scholars think john the baptist had some association with the scene Jews. This is a subgroup within the hood of the time or the Muslims of the time, who were celibate. According to Joseph is the scene rejected the pleasures is evil, but esteem continents are and esteem continents and the conquest over our passions to be a virtue, they neglect wedlock, but look to those or look to choose out other person's children and esteem them to be of their own kindred, and form them according to their own manners. Steven, so this is again, the group that you belong to were also hustler. So there was actually a group among
them that decided that they're going to dedicate themselves to law service and not concern themselves with marriage. Although a few scholars argue that Jesus spent the last years between the ages of 12 and 30. As a member of the ASEAN community, the suggestion has not been widely accepted. By contrast, john the baptist, we say it his Salaam, whom the gospel paints as a desert ascetic, condemning Jew, Jewish, religious and political leadership, a Jew, religious and political leadership and preaching a doctrine of repentance before an impending Holocaust seems to echo some of the essence characteristic views. So the Quran is actually describing his leadership and him
cutting himself off also from the rest of the Jewish community and telling them if you don't accept the message of the Saudi Salaam Doom is coming. So there's actually a parallel just and of course the Quran didn't give us this article. The Quran just had what say, then
he like, drops a word and then there are chapters inside that word. You know, there there's PhD thesis inside that
That allows or gives. So anyway, that was my my short introduction. Now let's come back to the story of Miriam Santa Monica. So Allah says you weren't with the prophets I saw them. This is special news of the unseen that we're granting to you. And you weren't you were not in their company at all lahmacun tala de him you were not in that exclusive company that aim against suggesting that closeness is unique una escuela mahoma yo homie aku Marianna, when they were throwing their pens literally means pens, you could translate that as arrows I will stick to pens.
Which of them is going to take, you know the the custodianship of Madame yaku we Sokka fella has Acadia umiak Fusarium here we before we talk about what this is referring to, I want to tell you a little bit about this throwing of pens and what does that mean when they were throwing pens at the who will take care of money and more who will take custodianship of Medea well he'll alum ality ACTA buena behead Tara This is even a show who does quite a bit of Bible research in his the seed anyway. Okay. So he says and these are the pens that they use to write it all out with these are the important pens to them because they considered the sacred they used to write the word of Allah with
them can we apply the owner behalf and Mashallah we actually had a smile looked at in our smile she mcalary ha ha. They used to write these the mark these pens with the names of those that are being thrown into a lot when they had a difficult issue. And they didn't know which option is better. This was there is taharah
there is the Hara was we're going to take our you know, each of the rabbits will take a pen, we're gonna write option one, option two, option three, we're gonna throw these pens the one we pick up is the option we'll choose. Okay, so this is what they used to do. When NASA will say you see Luna Luna in Colorado, and Adama urological Hawk.
They used to do this kind of thing when they couldn't decide what is closer to the truth when they couldn't figure out what is which option to take, basically, is the color right for Canada Anuj Lilia stocksy Muna will Islam Medallia Hola, Terra Bella clam elegiac to Buena Vista, Tara Phil, Madonna's Raja and takuna Baraka to ha murshida Allahu ala Mahal. Hi. So you know, the when people have Jamelia, they used to throw arrows and shoot arrows. And this was the kind of lottery they did for good luck. And the Jews had developed this thing about the pens with which they route right to Torah and their monasteries and their schools, hoping that the blessings of those parent pens is
going to point them to the best opinion. So this was kind of a practice that they had even our show goes on to discuss this has no room in our area. So don't, you know, do pen throwing, except if you're a kid in Sunday school, and he could just say out loud.
But anyway, you have Yakubu Maria, who is going to take care of him. Now this brings the second issue
to our attention. That is that is this referring to the same thing we just read, which is zecharia took her custodianship is this that the pens were thrown and then the Korea won the vote, and therefore he took custodianship of her is that what this is talking about? That's kind of been traditionally what's been said about this sequence. Others have tried to reconcile like Gabriel Reynolds is a Koran scholar and writes a lot about biblical subtext that kind of reconciling the text of the Bible, and the text of the Koran, trying to, you know, merge the two histories together as best as possible wherever possible. And me I'm looking at that work, not necessarily because it
has conclusive answers, but there are multiple ways of looking the language does have room for it. It seems that there are from the Christian point of view, two separate events. One is when she's born, dedicated to service, there is no debate about who's going to take care of her. She's a young kid, she's a young baby. And you know, her mom is going to take care of her. And when she's a little bit old enough, her uncle is going to take care of her who was that is like an era Samak. A fella has a career, okay. But when she gets to a certain age, from their record, like I alluded to, in the Infancy Gospel of James, when she got to a certain age, there was a question of who should be her
guardian because she can't stay here anymore. She's of that age where she can't be at the machine anymore, or somebody has to take responsibility for her. Now we're going to have to have a some some sort of form of voting, or some form of, you know, prayer ritual. And that's perhaps what I was referring to here, that once you reach that age, then this discussion took place. And they were having an argument, because it says, Well, my name is just a symbol and you were not with them when they were engaged in heavy argument. Now, what could that heavy argument refer to? It could possibly refer to the fact that when they did throw their lats or their pens then they came up with the name
Joseph not use of honey Sam Joseph of the time, an older man Married with Children who they said, You know what, your name came up, you should marry, marry, marry him and take care of her from now on. So that's that's been decided by by way of this pen, you know, process. He said he argued in the in the biblical account, he argues with zirconia he says I'm old. I don't want to marry a 16
You're old, I don't want to do that they're gonna, the entire Israelites are gonna laugh at me. So at the very least what they decided is at least Okay, you won't marry her, but at least take guardianship of her.
And but it was a big argument, like he didn't just want to accept that. So it's maybe referring to the Stasi moon, if you want to reconcile the two texts together that this is the argument that it's been referring to. There's another possibility. And the possibility is that they did come up with an argument who is going to take care of her at at such an age. And that's perhaps because they were vying not necess, not on the one hand, because they thought she's a burden, we need to pass this off to somebody, but actually, everybody felt honored who will have the honor of taking care of this child, right, or who's going to have the honor of bringing her into their home. And that's something
they wanted to draw lots of out. There's a heavy decision. And so this part of the is suggesting how valuable she was to them.
But then not too long later, when she comes back with a child, they're arguing about her character. Right. And they're This is the same woman that was the most honored among them, and all of a sudden, she's dropped so low, and they're debating about what to do with her because she's a blemish on the community, that perhaps that latter part could be referring to if yester Simone, you weren't with them when they were making this kind of debate. But I would suggest that the first meaning that this is actually still referring to the original back and forth about her custodianship is probably the preferred meaning, I would argue that because lady him is used, the second time I can tolerate him
is just a simile against suggesting a private meeting, suggesting something that was happening in closed doors, because the second time when the argument was happening against our character, and all of that, that was out in open that was, you know, in the public. So if you were to try to reconcile the two histories together, if Allahu Adam, if that's the case, again, this is not definitive. But if you were to construct a narrative of the life of Miriam said, here's what it would look like. She's delivered to the temple dedicated to the temple. That's the first thing that happens. Then she sustained by an angel, which is mentioned in Koran also, then Zachary Ali Salaam arranges for the
acclaimed contest to see who should be married to her or who should take the eventual responsibility for now we're merging the Quranic and the biblical accounts. Then later use you know, in
use of argues the demand Joseph argues with Zachary Allah Islam unwilling to take Mary as she is too young. Right. So that's maybe the yester Simone that that that it's referring to. So the argument in this case would not be which priest will care for Mary with all of them wanting to but rather about Joseph not wanting to marry her as she's too young. This is This sets up a perfect contrast. Joseph doesn't want to marry doesn't want marry just like her mother didn't want a girl but God chose her anyway. So there was there's this continuation of the same you know, reluctance
theme now. Now we get to the ayah if Allah tell melodica to Yama, Yama in the last in the lava shiraki we Kalamata Minho, the small mercy Holy subramanium, McGeehan for dunya and akhira Ramadan makabe This is the I will conclude with today, when the angel said tomorrow now this is again the same scene the angels have come and told her Allah has chosen you and all of that, by the way, there are going to be two different interpretations of where this happened. Okay, incidentally, if we take the, you know, this merged account that I just suggested, then she's no longer in the merabh then she's actually in the custodianship of Joseph. And this is where the angels came to her. What the
Quran refers to as mcaninch altea. It's ambiguous in the Quran mcaninch appear and the eastern location and Eastern in Tibet had been Elisa mcaninch appear when she took her through herself or cast herself away to an Eastern location. Now, what is that Eastern location? Some said, it's the east side of as much of the Luxor as the east side of the temple. And that's where she was. Other said, No, she went far away. And this is even a debate among the Muslims. That this is she went some somewhere even further away from the mustard just to be alone by herself. And that's when the angel came to her.
You know, and if so, if we take the account that somebody else took custodianship of her, then she did, in fact, go away from the machine somewhere else. And that's where Eliza had the angel counter. Because, you know, the Mirabeau has mentioned is, you know, in the first time I was describing this to you, the merab is where she was in the career Lisa wasn't the angel came and talked to the cardiologist, but has not mentioned the second time when the angels come to her. Right. So it could be that she's there. That's one possible interpretation. She's still there. And mechanical Thea is still referring to the Makarov in other language or, and that's possible, we don't really know or
that she left and she was away somewhere and that's when the angel came to her and spoke to her. Okay. So now, when this this event does occur, and the angel is going to speak
In the comment tell her how it was chosen her and over over all others and now the shocking news in the law you must shiraki the angel said to her yeah Maria Maria in de la uma shiraki certainly Allah is the one giving you the congratulations Allah in fact he congratulates you. Allah is overjoyed with you. And the idea of Allah giving the sheet is very powerful, and that those words would have been pretty good. But
and the language keeps getting more and more heavy. So you will find University leukemia Kalamata men who Allah is congratulating, you have a word that comes from him. A word of Allah, coming to me.
That's amazing. What's this word? Allah, mercy, and mercy. Well, I'll translate the word mercy later on right now Messiah, the Messiah, but we'll get into the meaning of it. He said new Marian, Lisa, even almasi. Lisa, you know, the Messiah is a word from Allah. Now she's thinking a word. But it's not just a word. It's a person. It's it's not just going it's fair. Cool. And it's this person. His name is Lisa. Or is Missy is Lisa. That's okay. Congratulations to me. Who is this Acer? Even Marian.
Son of Maria, please, that's me.
Congratulations to me. I'm gonna have a word of Allah. Wait, I'm gonna have a child. And so this is actually it builds up to the most shocking news. And it starts with Congratulations, you have to appreciate the ladder placement of Eben millennium, in this ayah of how it builds up and the shark has just dropped at the end.
And then, of course, if she's getting the news, the first thought is what are people gonna say? How in the world? And she hasn't even expressed that yet. But before she even expresses that lesson, what do you think Indonesia
honored in this world? Would he someone who can show his face and someone who people who people look up to their face, and people whose head someone whose head is held high watch from watch and watch is used when someone's not embarrassed they can face you, someone who will hold his head head up high, someone who's considered noble someone who also would you can suggest someone who faces Allah, someone who's had an embarrassment before Allah, someone was honored by Allah in this life and in the next dunya will Akira
and on top of all of that as a ladder attribute which I will discuss with you tomorrow inshallah wamena makabe. And he's from those that have been brought very close. Those that have been brought very close. This is a description used for angels.
Right. It's also a description used for those who come first and foremost wasabi Quinn Savio, Panasonic, oulanka and mokaba Moon for where they will come up on feature 99 they're brought close in Jannat.
Right engine now brought close in the sense that they are close to Allah now. Those have been brought close to Allah physically in Ghana. You see where I'm going with this now? Okay, well, we don't know carabin. You know, in any case, this is the the introduction to money. I'm sorry, I'm gonna have the gift that a lot congratulates her with. Now, one thing at a time, he Scully met him in who he is what she's congratulating him of is a word from him. This is important because in Nima Amro who is our associate Nicola, who goon goon, when Allah wants something to happen, all he says is Be
and it becomes, you know, in the biblical version, in the beginning, there was the word
you know, and the word is eternal. And therefore Jesus is the Word even the Quran says this is the word, and therefore, the Jesus is eternal. And all of that comes the Korans account of that is when Allah wants something to happen, he issues a word,
he issues a word and it comes into existence. He's already describing that this birth is actually a miraculous introjection from Allah. This is a point to remind ourselves of the difference between an element or an element. Okay? element Hulk, the world Allah created around us, a seed is put into the ground, it takes many years to turn into a tree. A baby is born of a mother, it takes many years to become an adult. It takes a few maybe a year, maybe more for the baby to start uttering words to same words to making sentences to speaking and all of that. This is how Allah made things in this world that are kabuna token and this is the Sunnah of Allah. Things go from one stage to the next to
the next to the next to the next. This is how Allah creates the world around us. Things age, things grow and they age and then they die. nations are born, they grow and then they die. People plants the planet.
All of it has this cycle, this life cycle that Allah created. But sometimes and within this cycle, Allah created different rules like fire burns, Allah made fire of the nature that it burns. But sometimes, and water holds this place like if I put water in a cup, it's not going to go on the sides of the cup is going to fill the cup evenly. But sometimes, Allah says a word.
And he, this all of this that obeys the law, because of Allah's existing word, then Allah gives a different word to it, and it changes. So he talks to the fire and since Cooney burden become cold, the fire is told become cold, was alarming and a source of peace, either Abraham and Abraham and Ibrahim, and he'll be thrown in the fire but fire won't burn anymore, because Allah said a word. So when the law says a word, what we consider, you know, cause and effect science, you know, action and reaction, it pauses when the last word comes through the striking of the staff what happens to the water with mortality, certain
parts, right, this is a last word, when he's describing the Saudi Salam is Allah's word. He's actually describing a departure from how normally things work. He's a kalama from Allah. And so every time she if she were to ever doubt, is this a legitimate child or not? The first description of him is actually a departure a divine interjection from Allah. He is a word from Allah meaning the manifestation of his miracle. Okay, can you met him in Allah
and that can only come from Allah.
So it can even mean Allah a word from Allah. You see another subtle biblical contrast. The Word was with God the Word and Jesus is the Word. The Quran says Jesus is a word.
It's a is a word. Allah has many gun manufacturers and he's one of them. Right? So it's subtle and beautiful. Like, you wish you look up Kelly Mattila. congrat congratulate you have the word of Allah. Though word of Allah would have they would have picked up on that. Allah says Kelly with him in Allah, the miraculous origin of the salary salon retained and the possibility of attributing divinity to him denied at the same time, beautiful, this is perfect.
Then one of the most misunderstood words about recently somebody's mercy
and mercy, Messiah in Arabic, which is similar in the Aramaic language and others. It's actually from Hebrew. Also, the Hebrews had it as well.
masaharu is to actually put oil or some kind of,
you know, substance on the hair to pass it over the hair. Okay, and this was actually a tradition so I'll read something to you. Well, malama see mom so we don't feel must have who was at Morocco lady Amala homosassa. And yet tequila, Julio Escobar, who and rcfe heroin. Originally, it's found in you know, archaic accounts that this is the kind of scented oil that Allah commanded Masada salam to pass over to anoint, they said to anoint, but really to pass over to put in the hair of his brother. How don't hanaa myjalah huka Hainan Lebanese wild when he made him a sacred person? God is not mind reader here. God actually means you know what to call priest but really make him an ordained demand.
This was their ordination ceremony to someone who will actually be close to Allah and guide the people from the Israelites was solid coordinate when he's like in hoonah be Miss Lee monumentally Punahou on him and then later on, it wasn't just about priesthood or Imam ship that they will do the ceremony. And now you've been blessed to take on this work. But actually, they will do this for kings.
kings were given this ritual, human lacuna Humala, him in the shower will Malik from soul or from I don't know what shower what the
biblical or the English equivalent is, but I'll keep it a shower. From his time they started putting this oil appointment thing as a ritual for those they declared a king and a leader for salomaa see who were under on demand and medic so the word mercy actually in Jewish tradition started meaning King. It actually started meaning the king has already safely some real Athenaeum in COVID-19 Kadeem Kala Tao, Olivia Tabata, Shaolin Malik and marilou founder Lara beetaloo actually doubt Allah His Salam in one account because you know that we are a Salaam pollute Alexandre in the same era. And in one occasion in the in the Old Testament, basically the elderly Salaam says what he's quoted here,
can you find them to have Andromeda californica mercy? harab Tao is complaining you're trying to kill pollute? Why would you try
kilter loot, how could you extend your hands to the mercy of God meaning the king appointed by God? Because God was appointed King so the word mercy was used in the Old Testament literature for a king. Also use for someone especially blessing chosen from Allah. So that's the the implication of the word mercy. But what's it doing here for ASR de ceram? This is probably not known to a lot of you for your tomoloo and nerissa Samia B How can I use a Muna be mullikin so it's possible that he was being named this the way that a king is named where your Emmylou Anna who laka Boone lacava who be helia hood, the Haku Manali and you could actually be that the Jews started calling him this as a
mockery to him. Oh, look, the king is here.
All of the special ones here.
It could be that his genuine followers believed he has been chosen like those before him that went through the ritual of must have been chosen and so they called him mercy.
The and so their king also in that messenger has authority over you like a king has absolute authority authority over you. The Jews looked at and says, Oh, yeah, I see.
Like sarcastically calling him mercy.
is a taboo be unknown you How will you and your sera Malika lie in.
And they did this because they thought that he is actually conspiring to take over governance of the Israelites. He's so critical of our order, because he actually wants power. You know, this is something our Prophet was accused of, by the hypocrites that he needs to Sadam only wants to go into battle because he wants more and more control and governance. This is what he's interested in, you know, and the lessons in this same sorta and not it's not not a surprise, Makana, leanbean, ano Hola, familia, familia TV Valhalla Yeoman chiamata, when our Prophet was accused of this, unless it's not becoming of any profit, to have worldly aspirations, and whoever does so will come with
those aspirations before him on digit, their resurrection. And so there's a parallel drawn even in that later on in the surah, between what the prophet is going to go through and what he's going to be accused of, and how the Jews accused the rissani, some of wanting kingship and calling him this name. But Allah took what was actually supposed to be a kind of sarcastic put down and turned it into an honorable term for a Saudi Salaam, he will in fact, have authority, he will, in fact, have a kind of kingship And that, again, is a subtle, illusionary reference to something that didn't happen yet. He didn't really have authority when he was there, then. But if we were to accept the accounts
of what's coming, then the word mercy had its implications start bearing fruit, I was telling you where my personal position lies on this. And now you're starting to see how some things are kind of heading in that direction, the hints that are heading in that direction. So Mahabharata, he was very much to hear about the Gallic, funny Delica, Soumya behavior. And then this name just became coined for him. Messiah, Messiah became coined for him, those who loved him or who didn't love him, they all actually had that attribute for him. And this became something beautiful for him. By the way, this happened with our profits license, a name that was given to him that was supposed to be an
insult, oh, and V alumi.
Was profit, can even read
under, under below me,
became his one of his most beautiful names.
A prophet that doesn't even have an education of letters like and like someone just coming out of their mother, by the way, on me also kind of a subtle parallel between him and
other other something else is going on there too. But anyway, so he says, this unlettered Prophet, the one that they find written in their books about
and this became his honor that Allah did not allow our Prophet size of them to learn reading from anyone other than himself, a lot of himself. And he's the author of the Quran.
Allah. Again, another interesting parallel. These are the Salaam did not receive a formal education of the book.
Allah says he taught him to Latin and Jean himself. Your
Torah will indeed he did not go to their schools. Same exact criticism, the rabbi's of the time of the prophets. I said, I'm head of the Prophet. So I said, um, where did he get his education? How does he know about revelation? Who taught him right? So the parallels are now going to start becoming more and more visible between the legacy of Saudi saddam and also the loss of a lot more news on them. So three things here about the name Messiah that I want to refer back to first there's a link to heroin. right because the original Messiah, is described of Moosa doing must have who have Nagisa that takes us back to this family being called earlier in Milan. If you remember earlier in
Milan is actually the family not of Lisa a salon, beautiful holiday salon, but they're being parallel together, and now even the idea of Messiah coming back from that original family. The second is how the word Messiah means King or mercy means King. And the third is that this suggestion isn't named positively applied, but the Jews used it tomorrow.
Mark him, by the way on the note that they used to mark him. I want to read something to you from the Quran. We're calling him in Nakata, Noma see her in Santa Maria.
And they said, We killed the Messiah, he saw the son of Mary.
If they believed Lisa was a good thing to say would they say that we killed the Messiah?
We killed this king. He says son of Mary.
Some king he is we killed him. And then rasulillah right. And also the word rasulillah. There could be attributed to them. And it could also actually be in a statement from Allah, meaning we're calling him in NA Katana almasi Hi, Santa Maria rasulillah a messenger of the Messenger of Allah they killed
like ally interjects in the middle and says they dare say this about a messenger of Allah. And that's that's what occurs and select Anissa. Now we get to the fun part. So this Missy, Abraham is clear Santa Maria, that's clear. The word that isn't very clear or obvious in its meaning is Lisa. Lisa, so I'm going to read some notes to you this is going to be rather long, but I think it's important. Okay.
Before analyzing the name Jesus, let's examine some background information from Luke chapter four, nine verses nine to 12.
This is an exchange between Saudi Islam and the devil. In the Bible,
they call they call the slave of Allah, the Son of God, but they don't really literally mean Son of God as in a vanilla. They actually the word has been misconstrued to mean that so the translation say Son of God, but the one close to God is actually closer to the meaning anyway, the devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. If you are the Son of God, he said throw yourself down from here for it is written, he will command his angels concerning you to guard you and always they will lift you up in their head. Listen to this prophecy carefully about a sign a Salaam that is already found in the previous scripture. He will command his angels concerning
you to guard you and always they will lift you up in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against the stone. Jesus answered, It is said do not put the Lord God to the test. In other words, I'm not jumping off this cliff. Because Allah says Don't Don't test my dog. All right. In this passage, the devil tempted Jesus by quoting a verse from the Old Testament that they both knew was a prophecy about Jesus. This stands as proof for Christians that psalms 91 was prophesizing about Jesus. Let us take a closer look at psalms 91. Whoever dwells dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadows of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord He is my refuge and my
fortress, my God, in whom I trust He will surely save you from the fall from the Fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers and under his wings you will find refuge His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart, you will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day nor the pestilence that stocks in the darkness nor the plague that destroys at midday 1000 may fall at your side 10,000 at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will not you will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say The Lord is my refuge, you will make the most high or dwelling interesting, you will make the
Lord Most High, you will make the most high your dwelling, no harm will overtake you. No disaster will come near your tent for he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all ways. They will lift you up in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against the stone. You will tread on the lion and the Cobra you will trample the gate great lion and the serpent By the way, in Hadith literature when a chalet son comes back, lions don't attack. And like there's there's this narrative about how things drastically change upon his return. Because he loves me says the Lord, I will rescue him. I will protect him from he protect him for he acknowledges my name. He will
call on me and I will answer him, I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him honor him with long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation with long life with long life. This isn't the Bible, it's not us. Now, clearly, what's the dominant theme in that long passage that I read to you? He's going to be saved when he asked a lot of save him. That's the that's the theme that they believe now. Amazingly, the name Jesus originally Yahushua Yahushua as the original pronunciation in Hebrew contract a contracted to YESHUA so they made it what they do translate in Arabic to right they take a name and they make it smaller. It's a module it's called also an Arabic like our male
becomes Rama. Like syllables gets skipped. Okay. So the same way Yahushua became Yeshua. Okay, so that the house was dropped, evangelical uses or use literally means the one who God saves literally
This is the one who God saves Yahushua is comprised of yo which stands for Yahweh which is God and Shiva which means salvation from the Hebrew trilateral sheen well and I in sha Allah, okay to save. Jesus was not the first person to have this name. The first was the first was Joshua the son of noon. Minister of Moses, the Bible states that Joshua's birth name was Oceania, who Shia in Hebrew, which means salvation. So the original name of one of the followers of Busan Islam was who share which means salvation itself. But and this is a number 13 eight, but Moses changed his name to your whole show. Listen to this carefully now. He changed his name to your show is number 1316. pointing
to the fact that salvation is the work of God, not man.
So your name shouldn't be salvation najat itself. Your name should be mine, Angela.
did not save saving itself, but the one who got saved that's more appropriate who said this musante salaam, naming someone else Yahushua found in the Bible. How amazing is that Jesus the man who Christians consider to be God and salvation was named after someone who was first named salvation. And then due to the fact that such a name belongs to God alone was renamed the one who God saves. realizing how detrimental mental Jesus's name is to their doctrine. Christian scholars explained the word Yahushua to mean he Jesus is salvation in order to make the name correspond with their beliefs. However, to have such a meaning, the name would have had to be iE shua which is so ridiculous that
it requires no further comment. Also, we know that this name was no coincidence, as the Quran says that Lisa asylums name was divinely ordained the ayah that we're reading, the angels came and told Muslims in America, the king, Isa, the son of million, the one who shall be saved son of money, the one who Allah saves, before the Quran, Christian Arabic phones use the Arab besides the Greek name uses to the Arabic Yeshua, your sewer, or you see and so you'll find even nowadays, people calling him in some Eastern nations, your sewer, okay, as opposed to face up, which is phonetically similar to the Hebrew because you know, your sewer and Yahushua. Same beginning, almost same ending. So they
said, well, let's keep the same letters and make it the Arabic version, okay. But this is linguistically problematic because technically it means he shall perish from the Arabic sower or Savior, which means to be lost, or to be put in vain or to perish. Amazingly, instead of using the popular term, which he meant, which would mean he shall perish. So if you talk to even Arab Christians, they may not call them an ISA, they may call me a sewer. Okay? And if that happens, then they're actually using they're sounding like the Hebrew but when you put it into Arabic, it means the one who discovered God killed, or the one who gets destroyed, what does Allah do? He, Allah in
verses the letters, the end at the end, comes in the beginning. And instead of changing the meaning is this change not from the left, the one left to perish, but the one changed by or saved by God, thus producing the name Lisa, or a pronounced Lisa. Since the name of the site is non drivable from any Arabic trilateral, Allah explains its meaning. When he says uresa in nimotop, Africa or Africa Ilia, I shall take you and raise you towards me. Meaning I shall basically I shall save you. That's the you know, embedded in his meaning.
So now, and yet despite the fact that one the name Jesus means the one who God saves, and to that the Old Testament emphatically prophesized that Jesus will be saved. The Old Testament says he will be saved. And three that the New Testament describes Jesus in his last moments praying earnestly and repeatedly to be saved. Christians believe that he was captured, tortured and killed. Additionally, they claim that accepting his murder his murderer grants them eternal paradise
And so long as origin says we're calling him in Nakata lemme see hi Sabrina Maria masala and they say we killed Lisa this the Messiah the son of Mary Rasulullah Omar cotton Oh, they didn't kill him at all well masala when they did not crucify him at all, when I can be alone, but it was made to appear that way to them. And I believe that this part of it is not it was made to look like that to them. I believe this to me, Allahu Allah, that in history, it was made to appear this way to them. The history was made to look like this to them. Not that they saw a crucifixion and it looked like a fake crucifixion. But actually over time, this was made ambiguous to them should be held on the you
know, the shadow is something made confusing. This was made confusing for them. This issue was made confusing for them. That should be it could be something that looks like something special.
We can be something that's made confusing. And so here I would incline towards the meeting. It was actually made to look appear like something confusing for them in the levena Stella food feel official came in Houma, Lacombe human mother homey, Minho, melamine Latina oven, or Nakata lukina.
Those who are disagreeing about this are in doubt about it themselves, they don't even know exactly what happened. And then he says they have no knowledge of it whatsoever. And then he adds, they don't follow anything but an assumption, a loved one except assumption for mahkota lukina. And they didn't kill him for sure. Absolutely. They didn't kill him.
And then he says, blah, blah, blah, who really rather than elevated him towards himself, and then some people come along and say, No, no, no, they, they didn't kill him. Instead, God raised him. No, that means Allah raised him in ranks Yala.
They didn't kill him, instead of raise them in ranks,
you will in turn,
if someone care gets killed in the path of Allah,
if someone gets killed in the path of Allah, that actually means they are raised in rank.
You understand that? when someone gets killed in the path of Allah, that is your file Latina, amen. Amen. como la dee da, da, da, da, da, the highest dollar cha cha was higher than Shahada. Allah says they didn't kill him. Allah raised him.
How are you putting those two things? Instead, Allah raised him. In other words, this didn't happen. Instead, this happened. Were you going?
Where are you going to go? Sorry, he's, I know you don't like a Please come back.
Hello, hello. But that's what I believe.
So in any case, and then he says, What do you yearn for Tanya?
And I haven't done an exhaustive study of this. I'll share a personal opinion with you on just the phrase, what you haven't done yet. What are
what do you have adonia suggests someone who is not humiliated. Someone who is not humiliated, someone who can show his face. If you look at the Christian account of what happened when these are they send them
it's a humiliating death.
It's not just he was killed in battle. It's not just he was killed in some, you know, you know, fighting for the cause of Allah. He's publicly shamed, dragged, tortured, slowly, exposed and then killed.
When you look at a depiction of Jesus on a cross, like if you saw any other human being in that state, you wouldn't look
you just wouldn't look. How's that wedgie?
Fine, you could say no, no, no, not that. Even if someone is dying, the worst kind of death. They are honored with a love but that's in the asset of
Alicia jihan. Petunia, voila, Sarah.
This is with Daniela was asherah. So and then, of course, I mean, I'm getting ahead of myself. He is honored before a law on judgment day and what does that mean that actually people who committed [???]can his name and people who dishonored him, both of them will be proven wrong and he will be right.
And he will show his loyalty to a large audience. And that conversation is coming to And on top of all of that one minute carabin strangely enough, dunia has mentioned our heroes mentioned and then he is from those who are brought close as though something in between Milan makara been he's been from those who've been brought close and steady vocabulary. Can you find the hands yourselves? The other really beautiful interesting thing is the word YG is used in the Quran once more.
Latina Latina da Mustafa Bara Hola, homie Mercado.
And in that ayah Allah talks about masani salam and says Allah proof proved that he was innocent against all the accusations that they made against Muslims. Most Don't be like the ones who caused pain to Moosa and Allah proved him innocent against all the accusations they made against Moosa Wakanda and the law he was he had and he was big in the presence of the law. As far as allies concerned, he was big. He was honored noble, who cause painter Moosa.
This is actually when we slay Vanessa, you don't be like those who cause cause pain to their messenger Musab because he was wedgie. Same bunnies, trying to cause pain and saying terrible things about who you Sally Salaam and he's YG. A parallel is made between Musa alayhis salam and a Saudi Salaam I take you back to Allah in Milan. In the last of our Adama we know Hanwha Allah Rahim Allah Allah, Allah and Ron the original family of Musa and now again,
even when he has a parallel between those two in the Quran. It's a profound profound thing and that's when you appreciate when Allah is going to teach him dot and mg Torah because the thought I've given to Musa is given again to the Saudis
Allah, Allah gives it to him again. So this is the kind of a synopsis of what's going on with just some things about Asante Salaam that we have to appreciate. inshallah, we'll go further and I'll, you know there again there is a hadith study about his return, I'm going to skip that study, what I'm going to share with you is the Quran in the implications of his return. And then separately, it'll ensure at some occasion, I'll actually sit with a hadith scholar and go through the Hadith and record those sessions for you guys, and go through them one by one and ask exhaustive questions about each of them. There is not the text and the implications of them and all of that. I don't want
to do that kind of just having a conversation with them. ahadith I'd rather sit with them rather than do that, and shallow Tana, but for now, just the Quran implications that at least seem very clear to me about his coming back barakallahu li walakum wa salaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
