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

There's places in the world where Muslims have

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

bad blood with each other.

00:00:05 --> 00:00:06

They don't like each other.

00:00:07 --> 00:00:08

They have

00:00:09 --> 00:00:09

history.

00:00:10 --> 00:00:12

And this is at the larger scale but

00:00:12 --> 00:00:14

at a smaller scale you have some problem

00:00:14 --> 00:00:16

with your somebody's family or this or that

00:00:16 --> 00:00:17

or the other.

00:00:18 --> 00:00:18

Right?

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

And

00:00:20 --> 00:00:21

our Islam

00:00:23 --> 00:00:25

isn't strong enough to erase any of that.

00:01:51 --> 00:01:52

With the companions.

00:01:53 --> 00:01:54

Muhammad rasulullah walaadhinimaahu.

00:01:55 --> 00:01:58

Muhammad rasulullah can be understood in 2 ways.

00:01:58 --> 00:02:00

Muhammad is the messenger of Allah

00:02:00 --> 00:02:03

or Muhammad the Messenger of Allah. Meaning it's

00:02:03 --> 00:02:06

not a complete sentence. Okay. And if we

00:02:06 --> 00:02:08

look at the first implication, Muhammad

00:02:09 --> 00:02:10

is the Messenger of Allah

00:02:11 --> 00:02:12

and those who are with him,

00:02:14 --> 00:02:16

and those who are with him are intense.

00:02:16 --> 00:02:17

So that the

00:02:17 --> 00:02:19

Ashida'u al Kuffar is about But

00:02:20 --> 00:02:22

if you look at it as a fragment,

00:02:22 --> 00:02:24

you would read Muhammad the messenger of Allah

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

and those who are with him together

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

are severe against the disbelievers.

00:02:31 --> 00:02:32

This was an important statement to make for

00:02:32 --> 00:02:34

multiple reasons. Usually we find,

00:02:36 --> 00:02:37

Those who believed. But you don't find those

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

who believed here. You see those who are

00:02:39 --> 00:02:40

with Him.

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

Those who are with Him. Those who believed

00:02:43 --> 00:02:46

is an all encompassing term that includes Muslims,

00:02:46 --> 00:02:48

the weak, the strong and even the hypocrites

00:02:48 --> 00:02:50

because they also claim to believe.

00:02:50 --> 00:02:52

So sometimes in the Quran,

00:02:53 --> 00:02:54

even includes But

00:02:55 --> 00:02:56

we already established

00:02:56 --> 00:02:58

that the Muslims that came along with him

00:02:58 --> 00:03:00

on this journey were only those who were

00:03:00 --> 00:03:01

truly with him.

00:03:02 --> 00:03:04

And they demonstrated how with him they are

00:03:04 --> 00:03:07

in their loyalty to him. So the is

00:03:07 --> 00:03:09

actually a really important part of the phrasing

00:03:09 --> 00:03:10

of this ayah.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:14

Then also Muhammad,

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

why why not just say, who are Rasulullah?

00:03:17 --> 00:03:19

Why mention him by name in this way?

00:03:19 --> 00:03:21

Right? This is unusual for the Quran. His

00:03:21 --> 00:03:24

name is mentioned like this explicitly only 4

00:03:24 --> 00:03:26

times. But what is it doing here? Why

00:03:26 --> 00:03:28

particularly mention him here? Also, if you look

00:03:28 --> 00:03:29

at the previous ayah,

00:03:32 --> 00:03:35

He's the one who sent his messenger. He

00:03:35 --> 00:03:37

didn't say Muhammad, He said His Messenger. So

00:03:37 --> 00:03:40

the Messenger has already been mentioned in ayah

00:03:40 --> 00:03:40

number 28.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

And because He's already been mentioned,

00:03:44 --> 00:03:44

you could say,

00:03:47 --> 00:03:49

He and those who are with him are

00:03:49 --> 00:03:50

a shidda because

00:03:50 --> 00:03:52

any reader would know, any listener would know

00:03:52 --> 00:03:54

that he refers to the rasool that was

00:03:54 --> 00:03:56

already mentioned as a noun in the previous

00:03:56 --> 00:03:58

ayah. So this is al idhar fi maqamil

00:03:58 --> 00:04:01

idumar. This is usually using a noun where

00:04:01 --> 00:04:04

you expect a pronoun. But even

00:04:04 --> 00:04:06

as a noun, rasoolullahi

00:04:06 --> 00:04:08

waladila maahu is enough.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:11

But why Muhammadun Rasoolullah?

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

Because

00:04:13 --> 00:04:14

this was a time where

00:04:15 --> 00:04:17

somebody could have questioned whether or not he's

00:04:17 --> 00:04:17

a Prophet.

00:04:18 --> 00:04:20

Why? Because he saw a dream and it

00:04:20 --> 00:04:22

didn't get fulfilled according to what you could

00:04:22 --> 00:04:23

see.

00:04:24 --> 00:04:26

So what's been re established, Muhammad in fact

00:04:26 --> 00:04:28

the Messenger of Allah.

00:04:28 --> 00:04:30

Muhammad the Messenger of Allah.

00:04:30 --> 00:04:32

There's also a really beautiful

00:04:32 --> 00:04:34

union between these two words.

00:04:34 --> 00:04:37

Muhammad is the name of a man and

00:04:37 --> 00:04:39

Rasulullah is the title of that man.

00:04:40 --> 00:04:42

A man is represented, that human being is

00:04:42 --> 00:04:45

represented in everything that he does. His sleeping,

00:04:45 --> 00:04:47

his waking up, his family life, his friends,

00:04:47 --> 00:04:48

his all of that.

00:04:49 --> 00:04:50

But in a

00:04:51 --> 00:04:53

before any of those other

00:04:53 --> 00:04:55

activities or roles that he plays in his

00:04:55 --> 00:04:55

life,

00:04:56 --> 00:04:58

above and beyond everything else he is the

00:04:58 --> 00:05:00

messenger of Allah. And I just want you

00:05:00 --> 00:05:03

to appreciate the dichotomy between those two things.

00:05:03 --> 00:05:04

Not everything,

00:05:05 --> 00:05:06

before I say this, some of this some

00:05:06 --> 00:05:08

of you might find this controversial for me

00:05:08 --> 00:05:10

to say, but it needs to be said.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:13

Not everything the Messenger said sallallahu alaihi wa

00:05:13 --> 00:05:14

sallam is revelation.

00:05:15 --> 00:05:17

Not everything he said is revelation.

00:05:18 --> 00:05:20

Sometimes he told people, Why are you grafting

00:05:20 --> 00:05:21

the plants

00:05:21 --> 00:05:22

this way?

00:05:23 --> 00:05:25

Or sometimes he told somebody, sell me your

00:05:25 --> 00:05:27

camel, or sell me your donkey.

00:05:28 --> 00:05:30

And they asked, is this a command?

00:05:31 --> 00:05:33

Meaning if this is a command, it's revelation.

00:05:34 --> 00:05:35

And he said, no, it's not a command.

00:05:35 --> 00:05:36

And he said, I won't sell you the

00:05:36 --> 00:05:36

donkey

00:05:37 --> 00:05:38

then. I won't do it.

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

Or

00:05:40 --> 00:05:42

in Suratul Azab, he told Zayd

00:05:43 --> 00:05:44

to keep his wife,

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

to keep Zaynab as his wife.

00:05:48 --> 00:05:49

Hold on to your wife. What did Zayn

00:05:49 --> 00:05:50

eventually do?

00:05:52 --> 00:05:54

He divorced his wife. But the Quran never

00:05:54 --> 00:05:57

says, he disobeyed the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu

00:05:57 --> 00:05:57

alaihi wasallam.

00:05:58 --> 00:06:00

Because he wasn't giving that advice in the

00:06:00 --> 00:06:02

role of being Allah's

00:06:02 --> 00:06:03

Messenger.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:04

There are plenty of situations

00:06:05 --> 00:06:06

in which the Messenger of Allah

00:06:07 --> 00:06:08

is just expressing his opinion.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:10

And this is important because

00:06:11 --> 00:06:13

Allah wanted to demonstrate that Allah chose a

00:06:13 --> 00:06:14

human being.

00:06:15 --> 00:06:16

Because

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

if everything that comes out of his mouth

00:06:18 --> 00:06:21

is dictated by Allah, then you're not thinking

00:06:21 --> 00:06:23

of him as a thinking human being, he's

00:06:23 --> 00:06:25

just a vessel to communicate, and Allah is

00:06:25 --> 00:06:27

doing all the thinking for him.

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

Because then he has no autonomy of his

00:06:30 --> 00:06:30

own.

00:06:31 --> 00:06:32

Everything is just coming from Allah.

00:06:33 --> 00:06:35

But no, he had his own choices, his

00:06:35 --> 00:06:36

own character, his own

00:06:36 --> 00:06:39

sometimes temper, his own decisions sometimes.

00:06:40 --> 00:06:42

This is also demonstrated by the earlier part

00:06:42 --> 00:06:44

of the surah, where Allah said, liyahfiralaqalahu

00:06:45 --> 00:06:45

ma'takaddabamin

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

dhambik.

00:06:47 --> 00:06:49

Right? So of the Messenger was mentioned early

00:06:49 --> 00:06:52

on. If everything he does is revelation, then

00:06:52 --> 00:06:53

there can't be any Then

00:06:54 --> 00:06:56

there can't be any autonomous decisions.

00:06:56 --> 00:06:59

Then there won't be any possibility that he

00:06:59 --> 00:07:01

will let prisoners of war go, and then

00:07:01 --> 00:07:03

revelation will come and say, Why did you

00:07:03 --> 00:07:04

let them go? Or it won't be any

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

possibility

00:07:05 --> 00:07:08

that he'll let some soldiers stay back during

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

the battle of Tabuk, and the Quran will

00:07:09 --> 00:07:11

come and say, why did you let them

00:07:11 --> 00:07:12

give them permission to stay back?

00:07:15 --> 00:07:16

That wouldn't be the case.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:19

So establishing the humanity of the Prophet sallallahu

00:07:19 --> 00:07:21

alaihi wa sallam is extremely crucial.

00:07:22 --> 00:07:23

But at the same

00:07:23 --> 00:07:25

time, establishing that he is in fact the

00:07:25 --> 00:07:28

Messenger of Allah salallahu alayhi wasalam, which gives

00:07:28 --> 00:07:31

him the highest status among human beings, is

00:07:31 --> 00:07:34

also extremely crucial. You have to understand the

00:07:34 --> 00:07:37

relationship between human beings and their prophets

00:07:38 --> 00:07:39

is complicated.

00:07:39 --> 00:07:42

It's complicated by Judaism, and it's complicated by

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

Christianity.

00:07:43 --> 00:07:45

And Islam came to simplify it.

00:07:46 --> 00:07:47

How did Judaism

00:07:47 --> 00:07:51

complicate it? Judaism complicated it by making prophets

00:07:51 --> 00:07:53

seem like just people.

00:07:54 --> 00:07:56

They're just people. In fact, they're not just

00:07:56 --> 00:07:58

people, they're usually messed up people.

00:07:59 --> 00:08:02

The Old Testament almost goes out of its

00:08:03 --> 00:08:03

way

00:08:03 --> 00:08:04

to

00:08:04 --> 00:08:06

describe how flawed

00:08:07 --> 00:08:08

prophets are,

00:08:09 --> 00:08:10

how messed up they are.

00:08:10 --> 00:08:14

Okay? And there's logic behind that, their logic.

00:08:14 --> 00:08:16

And their logic is, well,

00:08:16 --> 00:08:18

they're messed up which is why we don't

00:08:18 --> 00:08:20

follow them all the time.

00:08:21 --> 00:08:24

So their disobedience to the Prophets is now

00:08:24 --> 00:08:26

justified because, I mean come on, Nuh alaihi

00:08:26 --> 00:08:29

salaam is being accused in the Bible of

00:08:29 --> 00:08:31

wanting to have intimacy with his own daughters.

00:08:32 --> 00:08:34

And things like these are the kinds of

00:08:34 --> 00:08:36

things we don't even imagine them in the

00:08:36 --> 00:08:37

Quran, but this is their tradition.

00:08:38 --> 00:08:40

This is how they think of their Prophets.

00:08:40 --> 00:08:41

Right?

00:08:41 --> 00:08:42

And

00:08:42 --> 00:08:45

Dawud alaihis salam is accused of wanting to

00:08:45 --> 00:08:47

marry some one of his soldiers' wives, and

00:08:47 --> 00:08:49

he gets him killed and then he marries

00:08:49 --> 00:08:49

her.

00:08:49 --> 00:08:51

Right? This this is this is their normal.

00:08:52 --> 00:08:55

And so and and and my my favorite

00:08:55 --> 00:08:56

one, these are the more extreme ones. My

00:08:56 --> 00:08:58

favorite one is when

00:08:59 --> 00:09:00

Pahlut

00:09:00 --> 00:09:00

Saul,

00:09:01 --> 00:09:04

Saul, Pahlut. Saul was in the Quran,

00:09:04 --> 00:09:06

but he became the general of the Israelites.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:08

Yeah. The Muslims. And they went by a

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

river.

00:09:09 --> 00:09:11

Yeah. And he told them don't drink from

00:09:11 --> 00:09:12

this,

00:09:13 --> 00:09:14

right? And whoever

00:09:14 --> 00:09:16

just jumps in it and start fishing in

00:09:16 --> 00:09:18

it, in fact, Laysa minni, he's not from

00:09:18 --> 00:09:20

my army. So this was the army's first

00:09:20 --> 00:09:22

test of discipline. Right?

00:09:22 --> 00:09:24

Interesting that in the Quran, the great test

00:09:24 --> 00:09:27

of discipline was restraint even in the Israelite

00:09:27 --> 00:09:27

example.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:30

Right? And the final test of the Muslim

00:09:30 --> 00:09:31

army was actually restraint

00:09:32 --> 00:09:34

in this surah. Right? But anyway,

00:09:35 --> 00:09:36

so he tells them,

00:09:40 --> 00:09:41

Whoever doesn't consume

00:09:42 --> 00:09:44

from this river is part of my army.

00:09:46 --> 00:09:47

Except someone who just sips with their hand

00:09:47 --> 00:09:50

like this. That's it. You can have this

00:09:50 --> 00:09:52

much but don't take more than that. Okay.

00:09:53 --> 00:09:54

The Bible version of this story,

00:09:55 --> 00:09:56

it's so much fun.

00:09:59 --> 00:10:01

What they have is, he told his people

00:10:01 --> 00:10:03

not to drink from the water.

00:10:03 --> 00:10:05

And they said, what are you talking about?

00:10:05 --> 00:10:07

We need to fight the enemy. We need

00:10:07 --> 00:10:09

energy. We're gonna drink from the water. So

00:10:09 --> 00:10:10

they all drank from the water, and that's

00:10:10 --> 00:10:12

why they won the battle.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:15

So the way they tell their stories

00:10:16 --> 00:10:19

is, prophets usually are mistaken or messed up,

00:10:19 --> 00:10:20

and we question them and go against them

00:10:20 --> 00:10:22

which works out in our favor.

00:10:23 --> 00:10:25

Okay. So this this is the engineering

00:10:25 --> 00:10:29

that happened in the Israelite tradition. In fact,

00:10:29 --> 00:10:31

another dimension of that is

00:10:32 --> 00:10:33

really interesting,

00:10:34 --> 00:10:35

what they did with Yusuf.

00:10:36 --> 00:10:37

Yusuf alaihis salaam

00:10:38 --> 00:10:41

is disparaged pretty badly, and Musa is spoken

00:10:41 --> 00:10:42

of highly.

00:10:43 --> 00:10:45

So one Prophet they spare somewhat more than

00:10:45 --> 00:10:46

others is Moses.

00:10:47 --> 00:10:49

But Yusuf, they don't like. They say bad

00:10:49 --> 00:10:50

things about him.

00:10:51 --> 00:10:53

In the story of Yusuf, you'll find very

00:10:53 --> 00:10:55

evil insertions in the biblical version. The Quran

00:10:55 --> 00:10:58

doesn't have that, the Bible has that. Okay.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:00

Why? Why why are you coming after Yusuf

00:11:00 --> 00:11:02

like that? Well, Yusuf is the reason we

00:11:02 --> 00:11:03

ended up in Egypt,

00:11:04 --> 00:11:06

and eventually in Egypt we became what?

00:11:06 --> 00:11:09

Slaves a few generations later. It's Yusuf's fault.

00:11:09 --> 00:11:12

So they let out their their passive aggressive

00:11:12 --> 00:11:14

anger on Yusuf. It comes out in the

00:11:14 --> 00:11:15

way they tell the story of Yusuf

00:11:16 --> 00:11:17

in the in the Old Testament,

00:11:18 --> 00:11:19

how they modified the story.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

And Moses is the reason we escaped Egypt,

00:11:22 --> 00:11:24

so we speak highly of Moses. He's the

00:11:24 --> 00:11:24

savior.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:28

Right? He delivered us from the pharaoh. Right?

00:11:29 --> 00:11:30

So this is the complicated relationship

00:11:31 --> 00:11:33

the Israelites have had with prophet. The world

00:11:33 --> 00:11:35

only knows about the Jews and Christians when

00:11:35 --> 00:11:35

it comes to

00:11:36 --> 00:11:38

prophets. More so the Christians.

00:11:38 --> 00:11:40

The Christians have another problem.

00:11:40 --> 00:11:42

The Christian problem is, Jesus is God.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:44

Jesus is perfect.

00:11:45 --> 00:11:47

And if you wanna really show how perfect

00:11:47 --> 00:11:48

Jesus is,

00:11:48 --> 00:11:50

well then you have to you can't say

00:11:50 --> 00:11:51

He's like any other prophet.

00:11:52 --> 00:11:54

Right? So what do you have to do?

00:11:54 --> 00:11:55

You have to show that all the other

00:11:55 --> 00:11:56

prophets are

00:11:57 --> 00:11:59

messed up, and the more messed up you

00:11:59 --> 00:12:01

showed them, the better Jesus starts looking.

00:12:02 --> 00:12:04

You understand? So they're actually in agreement with

00:12:04 --> 00:12:06

the Christian the Jewish

00:12:06 --> 00:12:08

version of things because it helps them with

00:12:08 --> 00:12:09

their doctrine.

00:12:10 --> 00:12:12

No wonder God had to send Jesus, all

00:12:12 --> 00:12:14

the other ones were so messed up.

00:12:15 --> 00:12:17

And they started this with Adam alaihis salam.

00:12:17 --> 00:12:19

The Christian theologians, they started this with Adam

00:12:19 --> 00:12:20

alaihis salam. And what they did with Adam

00:12:20 --> 00:12:20

alaihis salam is absolutely mind blowing. They said,

00:12:20 --> 00:12:21

Adam was

00:12:25 --> 00:12:27

in the image of God. You've heard this

00:12:27 --> 00:12:29

before? I have created man in my own

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

image.

00:12:30 --> 00:12:30

Right?

00:12:31 --> 00:12:33

So the God is Adam is created according

00:12:33 --> 00:12:35

to the Christian theologians,

00:12:35 --> 00:12:38

Adam is created in the image of God.

00:12:38 --> 00:12:40

So he was almost God like.

00:12:40 --> 00:12:42

That's how they describe him. He's almost God

00:12:42 --> 00:12:45

like. But then he ate from the tree,

00:12:46 --> 00:12:48

and the image of God in him broke.

00:12:48 --> 00:12:51

Like they describe it like the cracking of

00:12:51 --> 00:12:52

a glass.

00:12:52 --> 00:12:54

The image of God was shattered.

00:12:55 --> 00:12:58

And now he had to he and his

00:12:58 --> 00:13:00

wife, and the devil had to pay the

00:13:00 --> 00:13:03

price. 3 people messed up, Adam, Eve and

00:13:03 --> 00:13:03

the devil.

00:13:04 --> 00:13:04

So

00:13:05 --> 00:13:07

the devil was told, you have to crawl

00:13:07 --> 00:13:08

on the earth like a serpent.

00:13:09 --> 00:13:11

We're gonna turn you into God's gonna turn

00:13:11 --> 00:13:12

you into a snake, you have

00:13:14 --> 00:13:15

crawl on the earth. That's your punishment. Eve

00:13:15 --> 00:13:18

was told, now man will own you.

00:13:19 --> 00:13:21

You used to be his partner, now he

00:13:21 --> 00:13:23

owns you. And you will have to suffer

00:13:23 --> 00:13:25

pain when you deliver a child, the pangs

00:13:25 --> 00:13:26

of birth.

00:13:27 --> 00:13:29

Your punishment is, you're gonna almost, you know,

00:13:29 --> 00:13:31

cry out of pain and almost die when

00:13:31 --> 00:13:33

you give birth. That's your punishment Eve. Adam,

00:13:33 --> 00:13:36

you're gonna have to break your back sweating

00:13:36 --> 00:13:38

and laboring to make a living.

00:13:39 --> 00:13:40

Okay. So you're these

00:13:40 --> 00:13:41

are the punishments

00:13:42 --> 00:13:44

for Adam, Eve and the devil in the

00:13:44 --> 00:13:47

Bible. Okay. Now, they're sent on earth as

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

a curse.

00:13:49 --> 00:13:50

They're sent as a punishment.

00:13:51 --> 00:13:53

And the the problem was Adam wanted to

00:13:53 --> 00:13:56

redeem himself. He wants to fix what he

00:13:56 --> 00:13:56

broke.

00:13:57 --> 00:13:58

You you know the policy, we know it.

00:13:58 --> 00:13:59

If you break it,

00:14:00 --> 00:14:02

you buy it. Or if you broke it,

00:14:02 --> 00:14:03

you gotta fix it. Let me just put

00:14:03 --> 00:14:05

it that this way. If you broke it,

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

you're the one who's gotta fix it. So

00:14:07 --> 00:14:09

then the the theologians developed this new problem,

00:14:09 --> 00:14:11

the Christian theologians. They said, well, if Adam

00:14:11 --> 00:14:12

broke the image,

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

then the only one who can fix the

00:14:14 --> 00:14:16

image is also who?

00:14:17 --> 00:14:20

Adam. But Adam is completely incapable of fixing

00:14:20 --> 00:14:21

his own image.

00:14:22 --> 00:14:24

Human beings are No matter how much good

00:14:24 --> 00:14:26

human beings do, they are vile in the

00:14:26 --> 00:14:29

end. They cannot fix themselves. They're beyond repair.

00:14:30 --> 00:14:32

But God is not going to fix it

00:14:32 --> 00:14:34

himself because a human being broke it. So

00:14:34 --> 00:14:35

a human being has to fix it. So

00:14:35 --> 00:14:37

then God came up with a solution. He

00:14:37 --> 00:14:40

sent His only son as a human being

00:14:40 --> 00:14:42

to be sacrificed and that would be the

00:14:42 --> 00:14:42

fix.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:47

So they create the entire narrative

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

by putting Adam alayhi salaam down. And what's

00:14:49 --> 00:14:51

the problem with Adam alayhi salaam? He is

00:14:51 --> 00:14:53

too broken, he cannot be fixed.

00:14:54 --> 00:14:55

And then when you say Adam cannot be

00:14:55 --> 00:14:57

fixed, you're only talking about Adam or you're

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

talking about all of humanity?

00:15:00 --> 00:15:02

All of What did the Quran do? The

00:15:02 --> 00:15:04

Quran came and said, Adam alaihis salaam came

00:15:04 --> 00:15:05

to the earth, made tawba.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:08

Allah accepted his tawba.

00:15:10 --> 00:15:11

Done. Fixed.

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

There's no complication.

00:15:15 --> 00:15:17

And so it's done with,

00:15:21 --> 00:15:23

Adam came into contact with the words from

00:15:23 --> 00:15:25

his Rabb, and he accepted he made tawba,

00:15:26 --> 00:15:28

you know, and Allah accepted his tawba.

00:15:29 --> 00:15:31

Finished. Problem solved. No need for a savior

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

to come, and this and that. None of

00:15:33 --> 00:15:34

that stuff.

00:15:34 --> 00:15:36

What will save you? Your own tawba.

00:15:37 --> 00:15:39

And that's why even in Islam, what's the

00:15:39 --> 00:15:41

most important thing for you?

00:15:41 --> 00:15:43

Tawba. Why are you going to Hajj?

00:15:44 --> 00:15:44

Tawba.

00:15:45 --> 00:15:46

That's why you're going.

00:15:47 --> 00:15:47

It's simple.

00:15:48 --> 00:15:49

So what I'm trying to say is the

00:15:49 --> 00:15:52

relationship between people and their Prophets had been

00:15:52 --> 00:15:53

complicated

00:15:54 --> 00:15:54

and corrupted

00:15:55 --> 00:15:56

by Jewish

00:15:56 --> 00:15:57

insertions and

00:15:58 --> 00:15:59

Christian insertions,

00:15:59 --> 00:16:01

the final revelation is responding

00:16:10 --> 00:16:11

Inji.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:15

And it starts with Muhammadun Rasulullah. Muhammad is

00:16:15 --> 00:16:17

a human being and he's also

00:16:17 --> 00:16:20

the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. We're

00:16:20 --> 00:16:21

not gonna make him divine,

00:16:22 --> 00:16:23

but we're not gonna treat him like any

00:16:23 --> 00:16:24

other person either.

00:16:25 --> 00:16:26

We're gonna keep him human,

00:16:27 --> 00:16:29

but the best human.

00:16:29 --> 00:16:31

And treat him with the respect he deserves,

00:16:31 --> 00:16:33

that is that he is the Messenger of

00:16:33 --> 00:16:33

Allah

00:16:34 --> 00:16:34

'alaihi wa sallam.

00:16:36 --> 00:16:38

And those who are aligned with him, those

00:16:38 --> 00:16:39

who are loyal to him.

00:16:41 --> 00:16:43

They are tough in their stance against the

00:16:43 --> 00:16:45

kuffar. This is Allah reinforcing for the Muslims

00:16:46 --> 00:16:48

that even though you negotiated with them that

00:16:48 --> 00:16:50

did not mean that you're soft with them.

00:16:51 --> 00:16:53

You're compromised with them. For the first time

00:16:53 --> 00:16:55

the Muslims compromised, this doesn't take anything away

00:16:55 --> 00:16:57

from your toughness towards them.

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

This

00:16:59 --> 00:17:01

was a necessary part of the battle.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:03

The ideological battle, the political battle is also

00:17:03 --> 00:17:04

a battlefield.

00:17:05 --> 00:17:07

Signing a negotiation and a treaty is also

00:17:07 --> 00:17:08

part of war.

00:17:09 --> 00:17:11

It's also part of dealing with your enemy.

00:17:11 --> 00:17:13

You know people that are doing business deals

00:17:13 --> 00:17:14

in the 1,000,000,000 of dollars sometimes?

00:17:15 --> 00:17:17

They're all wearing suits and ties, but really

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

they are in a battlefield when they're in

00:17:18 --> 00:17:19

that negotiation.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:23

So even negotiations are a form of battle.

00:17:23 --> 00:17:25

When lawyers are debating a course,

00:17:26 --> 00:17:28

you know, a court case, they're battling.

00:17:29 --> 00:17:31

And they might compromise, Oh, we'll reduce the

00:17:31 --> 00:17:32

sentence by 10 years.

00:17:32 --> 00:17:34

There might be some compromises.

00:17:35 --> 00:17:35

Right? So,

00:17:38 --> 00:17:40

They are loving and caring between themselves.

00:17:40 --> 00:17:42

They have extreme love and care and mercy

00:17:42 --> 00:17:45

between themselves. This is the description Allah gave

00:17:45 --> 00:17:47

of those who are with the Prophet shalallahu

00:17:47 --> 00:17:49

alaihi wa sallam. This became a forever description.

00:17:53 --> 00:17:55

We are tough in our stance against the

00:17:55 --> 00:17:58

kuffar, we are merciful towards each other. Now

00:17:58 --> 00:18:00

who are the kuffar? Allah already gave us

00:18:00 --> 00:18:01

a nuanced

00:18:01 --> 00:18:03

of who the kuffar are. The kuffar were

00:18:03 --> 00:18:05

the people who were preventing us from coming

00:18:05 --> 00:18:07

to Makkah. But the kuffar were not the

00:18:07 --> 00:18:08

potential believers.

00:18:10 --> 00:18:12

Allah put them in a different category. Kuffar

00:18:12 --> 00:18:13

are not the secret believers

00:18:14 --> 00:18:16

that we never even got to know. Remember

00:18:16 --> 00:18:16

those people?

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

Kuffar are the adamant,

00:18:19 --> 00:18:21

the open enemy, and denier, and rejecter of

00:18:21 --> 00:18:24

Islam. We're taking a tough stance against them.

00:18:25 --> 00:18:26

And then,

00:18:27 --> 00:18:29

They are loving, merciful, caring

00:18:30 --> 00:18:31

between each other.

00:18:32 --> 00:18:34

This was it's easy to read that but

00:18:34 --> 00:18:36

I want you to understand what this meant

00:18:36 --> 00:18:37

for the Sahaba.

00:18:38 --> 00:18:40

One of the great heroes of Islam is

00:18:40 --> 00:18:40

Khaled ibn Walid.

00:18:41 --> 00:18:44

Khaled ibn Walid spills so much Muslim blood,

00:18:44 --> 00:18:45

it's hard to count.

00:18:47 --> 00:18:49

A lot of people that are standing next

00:18:49 --> 00:18:51

to Khayd ibn Walid, when they're standing in

00:18:51 --> 00:18:54

salah, he's killed their family member.

00:18:55 --> 00:18:58

His blood, his sword was wet with one

00:18:58 --> 00:18:59

of their family member's blood.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:01

That's Khaled ibn Walid.

00:19:01 --> 00:19:03

And they're standing and praying next to him.

00:19:03 --> 00:19:05

Let me tell you something from Khadib bin

00:19:05 --> 00:19:06

Walid's perspective.

00:19:07 --> 00:19:09

Khadib bin Walid's father is Walid ibn Muhira.

00:19:11 --> 00:19:13

There is so much Quran humiliating Walid.

00:19:15 --> 00:19:17

And Khaled ibn Walid, when he becomes Muslim,

00:19:17 --> 00:19:19

is he reciting the same Quran?

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

Yeah?

00:19:22 --> 00:19:22

He is reciting

00:19:23 --> 00:19:24

insults to his father.

00:19:35 --> 00:19:37

Maybe he's standing in salah and there's somebody

00:19:37 --> 00:19:38

reciting

00:19:39 --> 00:19:42

the ayat that are ripping through his father's

00:19:42 --> 00:19:42

memory.

00:19:43 --> 00:19:45

And then he's going to join those same

00:19:45 --> 00:19:48

people in battle and take die for them,

00:19:48 --> 00:19:49

ready to die for them.

00:19:52 --> 00:19:54

Something happens when you're with the Messenger of

00:19:54 --> 00:19:56

Allah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

00:19:57 --> 00:19:59

Your love and your hate

00:19:59 --> 00:20:00

gets realigned

00:20:01 --> 00:20:02

by Islam

00:20:03 --> 00:20:06

Islam is so powerful of a force that

00:20:06 --> 00:20:07

it realigns

00:20:07 --> 00:20:10

your loyalties and your biases

00:20:10 --> 00:20:11

and your

00:20:11 --> 00:20:14

grudges and your scars and your

00:20:14 --> 00:20:17

emotional attachments. It realigns all. It's not just

00:20:17 --> 00:20:20

a belief system. It's an entire emotional readjustment.

00:20:21 --> 00:20:22

Ashidaaalal

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

kuffaruhama baynah

00:20:25 --> 00:20:27

now if we were to apply that

00:20:28 --> 00:20:28

metric

00:20:28 --> 00:20:29

that standard

00:20:31 --> 00:20:31

then

00:20:33 --> 00:20:35

Pakistanis have dark history with the Bangladeshis.

00:20:37 --> 00:20:39

The Afghans and the Pakistanis.

00:20:40 --> 00:20:41

The Indian Malays and

00:20:42 --> 00:20:44

the Malay Malays and the Chinese Malays,

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

right,

00:20:46 --> 00:20:48

the Yemenis and the Saudis.

00:20:49 --> 00:20:52

There's places in the world where Muslims have

00:20:52 --> 00:20:53

bad blood with each other.

00:20:54 --> 00:20:55

They don't like each other.

00:20:56 --> 00:20:57

They have

00:20:58 --> 00:20:58

history.

00:20:59 --> 00:21:01

And this is at the larger scale but

00:21:01 --> 00:21:03

at a smaller scale, you have some problem

00:21:03 --> 00:21:05

with your somebody's family or this or that

00:21:05 --> 00:21:06

or the other.

00:21:07 --> 00:21:07

Right?

00:21:08 --> 00:21:09

And

00:21:09 --> 00:21:10

our Islam

00:21:12 --> 00:21:15

isn't strong enough to erase any of that

00:21:17 --> 00:21:17

Because

00:21:17 --> 00:21:18

our alignment

00:21:19 --> 00:21:22

is now there are other things that are

00:21:22 --> 00:21:25

more that we align themselves with them more.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:27

So you know how we saw before

00:21:32 --> 00:21:34

and the and the kuffar placed in their

00:21:34 --> 00:21:37

hearts a bias, a bias that existed before

00:21:37 --> 00:21:39

Islam. What was the bias that existed before

00:21:39 --> 00:21:42

Islam? It was a bias that I am

00:21:42 --> 00:21:44

first and foremost a member of this tribe.

00:21:45 --> 00:21:47

I'm a member of this race. I'm a

00:21:47 --> 00:21:49

member of this nation. I'm a member of

00:21:49 --> 00:21:50

this is who I am. This is my

00:21:50 --> 00:21:51

and yes, that is a part of your

00:21:51 --> 00:21:52

identity.

00:21:52 --> 00:21:54

But the Quran did not come to erase

00:21:54 --> 00:21:57

your heritage, or your history, or your identity,

00:21:57 --> 00:22:00

but it did come to realign your loyalty.

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

Your ultimate loyalty is to Islam,

00:22:03 --> 00:22:05

and to those who are with the Messenger

00:22:05 --> 00:22:06

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:22:07 --> 00:22:09

It doesn't matter if that your father's killer

00:22:09 --> 00:22:10

is next to you,

00:22:11 --> 00:22:13

because you're with the Messenger, and He's with

00:22:13 --> 00:22:14

the Messenger.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:17

Put love between your hearts.

00:22:18 --> 00:22:20

You know once Islam comes to Makkah,

00:22:21 --> 00:22:22

Hind is going to accept Islam.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:25

You know who Hind is, right? You know

00:22:25 --> 00:22:27

what Hind has done, right?

00:22:28 --> 00:22:30

And you know what's even wilder? She's gonna

00:22:30 --> 00:22:32

be joking around with the Prophet salallahu alaihi

00:22:32 --> 00:22:33

wa sallam in one narration.

00:22:36 --> 00:22:37

How?

00:22:38 --> 00:22:38

How?

00:22:39 --> 00:22:41

You know what's even more intense?

00:22:41 --> 00:22:42

Abu Sufyan.

00:22:44 --> 00:22:47

Abu Sufyan. Abu Sufyan is the governor of

00:22:47 --> 00:22:47

Makkah.

00:22:47 --> 00:22:49

Abu Sufyan has led every battle.

00:22:50 --> 00:22:52

Abu Sufyan was there when Hamza was killed

00:22:52 --> 00:22:54

and the Prophet was climbing up the mountain

00:22:54 --> 00:22:56

and he was at the bottom of the

00:22:56 --> 00:22:57

hill and he was saying, You know,

00:23:00 --> 00:23:01

exalted be hubal,

00:23:02 --> 00:23:04

calling on their God. We

00:23:05 --> 00:23:07

have Uzza, you don't have any Uzza. We

00:23:07 --> 00:23:09

have our goddess, you don't have a goddess.

00:23:10 --> 00:23:12

That's Abu Sufyan.

00:23:13 --> 00:23:14

Abu Sufyan came in aghazab.

00:23:15 --> 00:23:17

Abu Sufyan led the charge.

00:23:19 --> 00:23:20

That same Abu Sfyan is about to accept

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

Islam, or before he accepts Islam,

00:23:23 --> 00:23:25

but even after he accepts Islam. And by

00:23:25 --> 00:23:27

the way, he is going to accept Islam

00:23:27 --> 00:23:28

reluctantly.

00:23:30 --> 00:23:31

He accepts Islam,

00:23:31 --> 00:23:33

in his own words, it's reluctant.

00:23:33 --> 00:23:36

You can tell explicitly you can tell, he's

00:23:37 --> 00:23:39

kind of what choice do I have now?

00:23:40 --> 00:23:42

I got no other play left.

00:23:43 --> 00:23:45

You can come to Islam for the wrong

00:23:45 --> 00:23:46

reasons

00:23:46 --> 00:23:48

or reluctant reasons, and you can grow in

00:23:48 --> 00:23:50

your Islam later, that can happen. And we

00:23:50 --> 00:23:52

give him that benefit of the doubt, radiAllahu

00:23:52 --> 00:23:53

anhu.

00:23:53 --> 00:23:55

But he didn't come into Islam the way

00:23:55 --> 00:23:57

that some of the other Sahaba came into

00:23:57 --> 00:23:58

Islam. Not at all.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:00

But do you think that people that saw

00:24:00 --> 00:24:03

Abu Sufyan among the Sahaba didn't remember?

00:24:05 --> 00:24:08

Most of which is Umar I would imagine?

00:24:09 --> 00:24:10

You know when you

00:24:11 --> 00:24:14

it's a later story but when Abu Sufyan

00:24:14 --> 00:24:15

came to meet the Prophet

00:24:15 --> 00:24:15

after

00:24:16 --> 00:24:17

the night before Makkah was conquered,

00:24:18 --> 00:24:21

The last night, Abu Sufyan came to meet

00:24:21 --> 00:24:23

the Prophet accidentally

00:24:23 --> 00:24:23

actually.

00:24:24 --> 00:24:26

He ran into Abbas and Abbas said, let

00:24:26 --> 00:24:27

me take you to the Prophet.

00:24:27 --> 00:24:28

And the Muslims are

00:24:30 --> 00:24:31

were camped out, were 10,000

00:24:32 --> 00:24:32

soldiers

00:24:33 --> 00:24:36

at night, lights out, like we're ready to

00:24:36 --> 00:24:38

take over the city, and there's roughly about

00:24:38 --> 00:24:40

2,000 people in Makkah, and there's 10,000 soldiers.

00:24:44 --> 00:24:44

And Abu Sufyan,

00:24:45 --> 00:24:46

Abbas says, listen,

00:24:47 --> 00:24:48

let me have you talk to him. Maybe

00:24:48 --> 00:24:49

he'll go easy on you.

00:24:51 --> 00:24:54

So he Abbas had or had the Prophet's

00:24:54 --> 00:24:54

donkey.

00:24:55 --> 00:24:56

The Prophet's donkey means

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

if he is trusted,

00:25:00 --> 00:25:01

so he is safe.

00:25:01 --> 00:25:03

So he is walking with Abu Sufyan on

00:25:03 --> 00:25:04

the donkey and he is only showing his

00:25:04 --> 00:25:05

eyes.

00:25:05 --> 00:25:07

Why isn't he showing his face?

00:25:09 --> 00:25:11

Anybody will Abu Sufyan?

00:25:12 --> 00:25:15

There's 10,000 people that will kill Abu Zafya.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:18

And he's walking through their military camp. And

00:25:18 --> 00:25:20

as you get closer to the tent of

00:25:20 --> 00:25:21

the Prophet

00:25:22 --> 00:25:24

the higher the security clearance gets.

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

Right? So you meet some of the newer

00:25:25 --> 00:25:26

sahabah early,

00:25:27 --> 00:25:29

as you get closer and closer, now you

00:25:29 --> 00:25:30

run into some of the people that you

00:25:30 --> 00:25:31

fought in battle.

00:25:32 --> 00:25:34

Somebody's brother you killed, somebody's father you killed,

00:25:34 --> 00:25:35

somebody's

00:25:35 --> 00:25:36

you know?

00:25:37 --> 00:25:39

And you're going going and he passes by

00:25:39 --> 00:25:39

Umar.

00:25:40 --> 00:25:42

And Umar sees his eyes and he goes,

00:25:42 --> 00:25:43

Abu Sufyan.

00:25:46 --> 00:25:47

He just looks at the eye, he could

00:25:47 --> 00:25:48

tell.

00:25:49 --> 00:25:51

And he Umar bin Khattab thanked Allah

00:25:53 --> 00:25:55

that Allah brought you to me and there

00:25:55 --> 00:25:56

is no treaty.

00:26:01 --> 00:26:03

I won't go further into that story but

00:26:05 --> 00:26:05

man,

00:26:06 --> 00:26:07

man,

00:26:08 --> 00:26:10

he accepts he didn't by the way, he

00:26:10 --> 00:26:12

didn't even accept Islam that night.

00:26:13 --> 00:26:15

He didn't accept Islam that night. He accepted

00:26:15 --> 00:26:15

Islam

00:26:16 --> 00:26:17

after Makkal was conquered.

00:26:19 --> 00:26:20

He was so stubborn.

00:26:20 --> 00:26:22

He didn't even not even that. He stayed

00:26:22 --> 00:26:24

the night with Abbas radiAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam

00:26:26 --> 00:26:28

spoke with him and then he actually he

00:26:28 --> 00:26:30

was overwhelmed by the character of the Prophet

00:26:30 --> 00:26:31

shalaihi wa sallam.

00:26:31 --> 00:26:33

How nice the Prophet was to him.

00:26:34 --> 00:26:36

I mean any other general, what would they

00:26:36 --> 00:26:36

have done?

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

They would have walked into the city with

00:26:40 --> 00:26:42

his head on a spike first,

00:26:43 --> 00:26:44

just to send a message.

00:26:45 --> 00:26:48

That's what any other general would have done.

00:26:49 --> 00:26:50

You know what he said to him?

00:26:51 --> 00:26:52

And you know what

00:26:52 --> 00:26:55

Rasuul did for him? When he when he

00:26:55 --> 00:26:56

took over Makkah,

00:26:57 --> 00:26:57

he announced

00:26:59 --> 00:27:02

whoever stays at home, in their own home,

00:27:02 --> 00:27:02

is safe.

00:27:03 --> 00:27:05

Whoever stays at the Kaaba

00:27:05 --> 00:27:06

is safe.

00:27:07 --> 00:27:09

And whoever walks into Abu Sufyan's house is

00:27:09 --> 00:27:09

safe.

00:27:12 --> 00:27:15

He still gave respect to Abu Sufyan.

00:27:18 --> 00:27:19

This is called kill him with kindness.

00:27:20 --> 00:27:22

That's what this is called.

00:27:23 --> 00:27:25

And this is while, ashidda'u alal kuffar

00:27:26 --> 00:27:28

or hama'a. You see how he was a

00:27:28 --> 00:27:29

kafir,

00:27:30 --> 00:27:31

but once he became Muslim,

00:27:33 --> 00:27:35

the greatest of the enemies of Islam and

00:27:35 --> 00:27:37

Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam is rahim to

00:27:37 --> 00:27:38

him.

00:27:45 --> 00:27:47

You will see them in ruku, in sujood

00:27:48 --> 00:27:50

seeking the favor from Allah

00:27:50 --> 00:27:52

and His contentment and His contentment

00:27:53 --> 00:27:56

alone. This is not a description of conquerors,

00:27:56 --> 00:27:56

man.

00:27:57 --> 00:28:00

You will see them walking victorious with the

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

aid of Allah. No. No. No. You will

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

see them in rukuur, in sujood,

00:28:04 --> 00:28:05

bowing, prostrating,

00:28:06 --> 00:28:09

seeking the favor from Allah and His contentment.

00:28:09 --> 00:28:10

You Allah, so long as You are pleased.

00:28:10 --> 00:28:12

Isn't this a description of great humility?

00:28:14 --> 00:28:16

Allah is describing the true victors of this

00:28:16 --> 00:28:17

earth

00:28:17 --> 00:28:19

are not the conquerors, they are the humble.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:23

The Bible actually says something like this, the

00:28:23 --> 00:28:25

meek shall inherit the earth.

00:28:26 --> 00:28:28

The Quran is saying the ruqah and the

00:28:28 --> 00:28:32

sujah. Should sujah inherit the Makkah, inherit the

00:28:32 --> 00:28:32

Kaaba.

00:28:33 --> 00:28:35

This is the description. It's powerful.

00:28:38 --> 00:28:39

You will see

00:28:40 --> 00:28:41

on their faces

00:28:42 --> 00:28:45

marks of sajda. Meaning they've bowed before Allah

00:28:45 --> 00:28:48

so much that their reverence for God is

00:28:48 --> 00:28:50

just on their faces. This is not talking

00:28:50 --> 00:28:51

about a tattoo on your forehead.

00:28:52 --> 00:28:53

This is talking about

00:28:54 --> 00:28:56

you've put your pride before Allah down so

00:28:56 --> 00:28:57

much

00:28:57 --> 00:29:00

that now you can tell this person is

00:29:00 --> 00:29:03

only 1st and foremost they're humble before Allah,

00:29:03 --> 00:29:06

and that dictates everything else. That dictates where

00:29:06 --> 00:29:08

they get angry, where they get soft.

00:29:08 --> 00:29:10

That dictates all of their emotions because they

00:29:10 --> 00:29:12

live in a state of sajdah to Allah.

00:29:14 --> 00:29:15

So he says, That

00:29:19 --> 00:29:21

is their example in the Torah.

00:29:22 --> 00:29:24

The Torah actually doesn't have this example.

00:29:25 --> 00:29:26

And Allah says that is their example in

00:29:26 --> 00:29:28

the Torah, meaning that was meant to be

00:29:28 --> 00:29:29

their example in the Torah, but the Jews

00:29:29 --> 00:29:31

actually removed sajdah from the Torah.

00:29:33 --> 00:29:36

And InshaAllah, another session I'll I'll have with

00:29:36 --> 00:29:38

doctor Saqib Hussain will actually look at the

00:29:38 --> 00:29:41

closest thing to this in the Jewish literature

00:29:41 --> 00:29:43

that Allah may be referring to.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:46

Wa masaluhum filinjeel and the example they get

00:29:46 --> 00:29:48

in the Bible, in the New Testament meaning

00:29:48 --> 00:29:49

Jesus

00:29:49 --> 00:29:50

by the way, by saying Torah,

00:29:51 --> 00:29:53

Allah is calling on the memory of Moses.

00:29:54 --> 00:29:56

By saying Injeel he's calling on the memory

00:29:56 --> 00:29:56

of

00:29:57 --> 00:29:57

Jesus.

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

Moses

00:29:59 --> 00:30:01

was able to defeat Firaun,

00:30:02 --> 00:30:05

and Jesus was battling against the Israelites.

00:30:06 --> 00:30:06

Yes?

00:30:08 --> 00:30:10

The the the pharaoh of Rasul's time is

00:30:10 --> 00:30:11

who?

00:30:12 --> 00:30:14

The is Abu Safyan.

00:30:16 --> 00:30:17

And the Israelites

00:30:17 --> 00:30:19

were the people of khaibar that were already

00:30:19 --> 00:30:20

conquered.

00:30:21 --> 00:30:23

Right? Darasul alaihi wa sallam is also dealing

00:30:23 --> 00:30:25

with the kuffar and the people of the

00:30:25 --> 00:30:27

book. Just like, you

00:30:27 --> 00:30:29

know, Musa 'alayhi salaam and 'Isa 'alayhi salaam.

00:30:29 --> 00:30:32

And actually by put them together in this

00:30:32 --> 00:30:34

way, what has Allah done? Allah has shown

00:30:34 --> 00:30:36

us that what started with Musa alayhi salaam

00:30:36 --> 00:30:38

in revelation of a book and what was

00:30:38 --> 00:30:40

complimented by Risa alayhi salaam is completed completed

00:30:40 --> 00:30:43

by Rasool Allah sallallahu alaihi wasalam, and this

00:30:44 --> 00:30:46

conquest that's coming, that will be the completion

00:30:46 --> 00:30:47

of the missions.

00:30:48 --> 00:30:49

And that's why the most

00:30:50 --> 00:30:52

mentioned messenger of the of the Quran is

00:30:52 --> 00:30:53

Musa alaihi wa sallam.

00:30:54 --> 00:30:56

There's a direct connection between his and the

00:30:56 --> 00:30:58

mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasalam.

00:31:00 --> 00:31:01

I say this a lot of times but

00:31:01 --> 00:31:03

it's relevant here too. Musa alayhi wasalam had

00:31:03 --> 00:31:06

2 missions. One mission was in Makkah,

00:31:06 --> 00:31:09

1 mission was in Egypt, then he made

00:31:09 --> 00:31:09

Hijra,

00:31:10 --> 00:31:12

and the other mission was with Banu

00:31:12 --> 00:31:14

Israeel. That involved fighting.

00:31:15 --> 00:31:17

Rasul alaihi wa sallam had 2 missions. 1

00:31:17 --> 00:31:19

was in Makkah, then he made hijra, just

00:31:19 --> 00:31:21

like Musa made hijra. And his second mission

00:31:21 --> 00:31:23

was with the Muslims themselves, among them were

00:31:23 --> 00:31:25

the Bani Israel too, and among them were

00:31:25 --> 00:31:26

hypocrites just like Musa 'alayhi wa sallam had

00:31:26 --> 00:31:27

to deal with hypocrites.

00:31:27 --> 00:31:29

And it involved fighting in the path of

00:31:29 --> 00:31:31

Allah. So the seerah of Musa 'alayhi wa

00:31:31 --> 00:31:32

salam is actually superimposed

00:31:33 --> 00:31:35

on the seerah of Rasool Allah SWALLAM.

00:31:46 --> 00:31:48

It brings out a small blade.

00:31:48 --> 00:31:50

Allah is describing

00:31:50 --> 00:31:52

the example of the believers

00:31:53 --> 00:31:55

in the injeel that is being fulfilled now.

00:31:56 --> 00:31:57

As if,

00:31:57 --> 00:31:58

just like

00:31:59 --> 00:31:59

the Quran,

00:32:00 --> 00:32:02

the injeel foretold the coming of Muhammad,

00:32:03 --> 00:32:04

the Bible

00:32:04 --> 00:32:06

foretold the coming of Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam,

00:32:06 --> 00:32:08

the Bible also in a sense foretold the

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

coming of the followers of Muhammad

00:32:11 --> 00:32:13

There will be like a small blade of

00:32:13 --> 00:32:15

grass that comes out of the ground.

00:32:16 --> 00:32:17

So this is akhwajashat

00:32:18 --> 00:32:19

ahu, faazarahhu.

00:32:20 --> 00:32:22

Then he reinforces it, thickens it,

00:32:22 --> 00:32:24

it turns into a stalk, fastaghlavaai.

00:32:25 --> 00:32:27

Then it becomes tough like a bark.

00:32:27 --> 00:32:28

Fastawaaala

00:32:28 --> 00:32:31

sukihi, then it stands on its own stem.

00:32:31 --> 00:32:34

It stands tall, the stalk gets tall.

00:32:35 --> 00:32:36

The crop has grown.

00:32:37 --> 00:32:38

The rasul salallahu alayhi wa sallam is being

00:32:38 --> 00:32:41

compared to a farmer, and his followers are

00:32:41 --> 00:32:42

being compared to the harvest.

00:32:43 --> 00:32:44

A harvest

00:32:44 --> 00:32:46

the farmer is truly successful,

00:32:46 --> 00:32:48

has reached victory,

00:32:48 --> 00:32:50

when the crop has matured.

00:32:51 --> 00:32:53

And Rasool salAllahu alaihi wa sallam is being

00:32:53 --> 00:32:57

told, you have achieved ultimate victory because clearly

00:32:57 --> 00:32:58

your crop has

00:32:59 --> 00:32:59

matured.

00:33:00 --> 00:33:01

That was the example.

00:33:02 --> 00:33:04

We saw the opening of the Surah was

00:33:04 --> 00:33:06

describing victory. Now we're getting a description of

00:33:06 --> 00:33:09

the ultimate victory which is the maturity of

00:33:09 --> 00:33:11

the followers of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wa

00:33:11 --> 00:33:11

sallam.

00:33:16 --> 00:33:17

It impresses the farmer.

00:33:19 --> 00:33:20

It impresses the farmer.

00:33:21 --> 00:33:22

Who is impressed?

00:33:23 --> 00:33:25

Rasul salAllahu alaihi wa sallam. Rasul salAllahu alaihi

00:33:25 --> 00:33:28

wa sallam is not impressed with the conquest

00:33:28 --> 00:33:28

of Makkah,

00:33:29 --> 00:33:31

he is not impressed with the liberation of

00:33:31 --> 00:33:33

the Kaaba. What's he more impressed with?

00:33:34 --> 00:33:35

The Sahaba.

00:33:35 --> 00:33:37

That's what gives him pleasure.

00:33:38 --> 00:33:40

Because you know Ibrahim alaihi wasalam built a

00:33:40 --> 00:33:41

Kaaba and it was pure at the time.

00:33:42 --> 00:33:44

It was pure at the time. And what

00:33:44 --> 00:33:45

was the danger

00:33:45 --> 00:33:46

over coming generations?

00:33:48 --> 00:33:48

You know,

00:33:49 --> 00:33:50

idols will come, wajnubdiwabaniyahnaabudalaslam

00:33:53 --> 00:33:54

keep me and

00:33:54 --> 00:33:55

my following lineages

00:33:56 --> 00:33:59

from ending up worshiping idols. And isn't that

00:33:59 --> 00:34:00

what happened?

00:34:01 --> 00:34:01

Rasul

00:34:02 --> 00:34:04

can liberate the Ka'ba, But what if the

00:34:04 --> 00:34:05

same thing happens again,

00:34:06 --> 00:34:08

and the Ka'bah gets surrounded by idols again?

00:34:08 --> 00:34:09

It happened before.

00:34:10 --> 00:34:12

What's what is the gift Allah gave him

00:34:12 --> 00:34:14

that will make sure that that will never

00:34:14 --> 00:34:15

happen again?

00:34:16 --> 00:34:17

That's a Sahaba.

00:34:18 --> 00:34:19

They're mature.

00:34:19 --> 00:34:21

Now they know how to create By the

00:34:21 --> 00:34:22

way, when you grow a crop, is it

00:34:22 --> 00:34:24

just one season or multiple seasons?

00:34:25 --> 00:34:27

It's multiple seasons. You get the seed for

00:34:27 --> 00:34:28

the next

00:34:28 --> 00:34:30

year from this crop, and the next year

00:34:30 --> 00:34:32

from that crop, and that crop, and that

00:34:32 --> 00:34:34

crop. And it continues to grow and multiply.

00:34:35 --> 00:34:36

Isn't it? And by the way, the next

00:34:36 --> 00:34:38

seed is it just enough for this farm

00:34:38 --> 00:34:39

or you can take it elsewhere and plant

00:34:39 --> 00:34:40

it elsewhere too?

00:34:41 --> 00:34:43

You could plant it elsewhere too.

00:34:43 --> 00:34:45

So you could have seeds now

00:34:45 --> 00:34:48

that their history started somewhere else entirely.

00:34:50 --> 00:34:52

I come from South Asia.

00:34:53 --> 00:34:54

My ancestry is,

00:34:54 --> 00:34:55

Afghan,

00:34:56 --> 00:34:58

apparently from the Yusufzai clan.

00:34:59 --> 00:35:02

They weren't Muslim historically, they were probably Buddhist,

00:35:02 --> 00:35:03

or some other pagan religion.

00:35:04 --> 00:35:07

That's what they were. Somehow the seed of

00:35:07 --> 00:35:09

the seed, of the seed, of the seed,

00:35:09 --> 00:35:12

of the Sahaba reaches this region. Then somebody

00:35:12 --> 00:35:13

accepts Islam, I'm Muslim.

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

And when they are children,

00:35:17 --> 00:35:20

and somehow somebody made dawah to somebody in

00:35:20 --> 00:35:20

America,

00:35:21 --> 00:35:23

some, you know, some somebody who is from

00:35:23 --> 00:35:25

Cuba originally. Their family is from Cuba. Somebody

00:35:25 --> 00:35:28

is from Puerto Rico. Somebody is from, you

00:35:28 --> 00:35:29

know, German origin.

00:35:29 --> 00:35:31

And they never heard no Islam in their

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

history.

00:35:32 --> 00:35:34

And all of a sudden, they take shahada

00:35:34 --> 00:35:37

and now there's gonna be a generation of

00:35:37 --> 00:35:37

Rodriguez,

00:35:38 --> 00:35:39

you know, Abdul Kareem Rodriguez.

00:35:41 --> 00:35:42

It's gonna be there,

00:35:43 --> 00:35:44

you know. And maybe some of them will

00:35:44 --> 00:35:45

be scholars of Islam,

00:35:46 --> 00:35:47

maybe some of them will be huffad of

00:35:47 --> 00:35:49

the Quran, maybe some of them will be

00:35:49 --> 00:35:50

leaders of Muslims.

00:35:52 --> 00:35:52

Right?

00:35:53 --> 00:35:55

That's that's Allah's plan.

00:35:55 --> 00:35:58

So he sees this crop and he knows

00:35:58 --> 00:36:00

this is a continued Sadaqah. This is a

00:36:00 --> 00:36:01

continuous investment.

00:36:02 --> 00:36:04

The most amazing investment you can make

00:36:05 --> 00:36:07

is into another human being. That's what Rasul

00:36:07 --> 00:36:09

salAllahu alaihi wa sallam left behind. That's his

00:36:09 --> 00:36:11

great victory. In fact, we are still a

00:36:11 --> 00:36:13

byproduct of that victory.

00:36:13 --> 00:36:15

We're a byproduct of that victory. And if

00:36:15 --> 00:36:16

we don't continue

00:36:17 --> 00:36:19

to create the next crop,

00:36:19 --> 00:36:21

then we have failed this plan, then we're

00:36:21 --> 00:36:23

not really with Him.

00:36:24 --> 00:36:26

Because those who are with Him, this is

00:36:26 --> 00:36:26

their description.

00:36:27 --> 00:36:28

It's so timeless that even though it was

00:36:28 --> 00:36:30

in the Bible it had to be refreshed

00:36:30 --> 00:36:31

in the Quran.

00:36:36 --> 00:36:38

This is gonna take a couple of minutes

00:36:38 --> 00:36:38

for me.

00:36:39 --> 00:36:40

So that it can

00:36:40 --> 00:36:42

infuriate the kuffar.

00:36:43 --> 00:36:44

The kuffar may be infuriated.

00:36:45 --> 00:36:48

Allah did not mention that the the kuffar

00:36:48 --> 00:36:50

will be infuriated because the Muslims will win.

00:36:52 --> 00:36:55

Allah said, The kuffar will be infuriated because

00:36:55 --> 00:36:56

the Muslims will be mature.

00:36:59 --> 00:37:01

You can't bend them.

00:37:01 --> 00:37:02

You can't break

00:37:03 --> 00:37:05

them. You're not able to succeed with your

00:37:05 --> 00:37:06

hearts and minds campaign.

00:37:09 --> 00:37:11

You're not able to turn them away from

00:37:11 --> 00:37:12

this religion.

00:37:12 --> 00:37:14

That's what makes them angry.

00:37:15 --> 00:37:17

When they see that the Muslim

00:37:17 --> 00:37:20

women aren't taking off their hijab.

00:37:21 --> 00:37:23

When they see young Muslim men still on

00:37:23 --> 00:37:25

Friday night driving to the mosque,

00:37:25 --> 00:37:28

while all their other college friends are driving

00:37:28 --> 00:37:28

to the club,

00:37:29 --> 00:37:30

driving to the mosque,

00:37:31 --> 00:37:31

when

00:37:32 --> 00:37:33

this bothers them.

00:37:34 --> 00:37:35

Why are you like this?

00:37:36 --> 00:37:37

You know,

00:37:38 --> 00:37:39

you ever notice when you go to university

00:37:39 --> 00:37:41

and you have Hindu friends and you

00:37:42 --> 00:37:44

have Buddhist friends and Christian friends and Jewish

00:37:44 --> 00:37:46

friends and all your friends,

00:37:46 --> 00:37:48

Nobody sits with a Hindu and says, man,

00:37:48 --> 00:37:49

you follow such a stupid religion. It's so

00:37:49 --> 00:37:50

extreme.

00:37:51 --> 00:37:51

And

00:37:52 --> 00:37:54

nobody cares. Oh, you're a Hindu? That's cool,

00:37:54 --> 00:37:56

man. Can I come to the temple sometime?

00:37:58 --> 00:37:59

The other religions?

00:38:00 --> 00:38:02

Yeah. Yeah. It's good. That's that's great. You

00:38:02 --> 00:38:04

you you you believe in whatever God? It's

00:38:04 --> 00:38:06

all good. You can believe in Kratos. You

00:38:06 --> 00:38:07

can believe in

00:38:07 --> 00:38:09

Thor. Just believe whatever you wanna believe. It's

00:38:09 --> 00:38:10

all good.

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

But who do they come after all the

00:38:14 --> 00:38:15

time?

00:38:16 --> 00:38:16

Muslims.

00:38:17 --> 00:38:19

Nothing else bothers them.

00:38:20 --> 00:38:21

Nothing else.

00:38:22 --> 00:38:25

This guy's this guy's worshiping an animal. Doesn't

00:38:25 --> 00:38:27

bother me. That's pretty cool, man.

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

They

00:38:29 --> 00:38:29

taste good too.

00:38:31 --> 00:38:32

Like, doesn't bother you.

00:38:37 --> 00:38:38

Will be enraged

00:38:39 --> 00:38:41

by the maturity of the belief. Why aren't

00:38:41 --> 00:38:42

they leaving?

00:38:43 --> 00:38:43

Why aren't

00:38:44 --> 00:38:46

they walking away from it? Why are they

00:38:46 --> 00:38:47

sticking with it?

00:38:48 --> 00:38:49

And you would think, oh, they just wanted

00:38:49 --> 00:38:52

power. Right? They were power hungry. Why would

00:38:52 --> 00:38:53

they be if they're power hungry, why are

00:38:53 --> 00:38:56

they entering? Why is their leader entering in

00:38:56 --> 00:38:56

sajdah?

00:38:58 --> 00:39:01

Why is their victorious description, rukkah and sujjad

00:39:01 --> 00:39:03

and yabdaghoona faddlam min Allahi wadhuana?

00:39:04 --> 00:39:05

What kind of victors are these?

00:39:06 --> 00:39:07

You

00:39:07 --> 00:39:09

know. This is a victory of biblical proportions

00:39:09 --> 00:39:10

quite literally,

00:39:11 --> 00:39:11

you know.

00:39:15 --> 00:39:16

This is where it gets scary.

00:39:17 --> 00:39:19

The ayah didn't leave us without fear. Allah

00:39:19 --> 00:39:19

said,

00:39:20 --> 00:39:22

Allah has promised those who believe and do

00:39:22 --> 00:39:24

good deeds from among them.

00:39:27 --> 00:39:29

Wait. I thought they were all good.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:31

Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, and those who

00:39:31 --> 00:39:32

are with him.

00:39:33 --> 00:39:35

This was all accolade and praise of the

00:39:35 --> 00:39:37

believer. By the end, what Allah has promised

00:39:37 --> 00:39:39

those who believe and

00:39:39 --> 00:39:41

do good deeds among them,

00:39:42 --> 00:39:44

as if to say, some people may have

00:39:44 --> 00:39:46

a good start, but they might fall into

00:39:46 --> 00:39:46

corruption.

00:39:47 --> 00:39:50

It's also important to note that by now,

00:39:50 --> 00:39:51

by the time these a'at are gonna be

00:39:51 --> 00:39:53

recited over and over again, more and more

00:39:53 --> 00:39:55

Muslims are gonna join Islam, isn't it?

00:39:56 --> 00:39:58

And the new Muslims that are gonna join

00:39:58 --> 00:39:59

Islam in these last 3 years of the

00:39:59 --> 00:40:02

seerah, the new Muslims that are gonna join

00:40:02 --> 00:40:04

Islam, they're not gonna get the personal time

00:40:04 --> 00:40:05

with the Prophet shalallahu alaihi wa sallam, like

00:40:06 --> 00:40:08

Umar Gad, like Abu Bakr Gad radhiyallahu anhu.

00:40:09 --> 00:40:11

Some of these people will be second degree

00:40:12 --> 00:40:12

tarbia.

00:40:13 --> 00:40:15

Why? Because their tribe leader came and accepted

00:40:15 --> 00:40:18

Islam, the whole tribe accepted Islam, but they

00:40:18 --> 00:40:20

didn't sit and recite the Quran that way,

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

they didn't get cultured that way, they didn't

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

go through sacrifices,

00:40:23 --> 00:40:25

they didn't have to go through any of

00:40:25 --> 00:40:26

that. And they're like, My tribe just became

00:40:26 --> 00:40:28

Muslim. Yeah, you're my tribe too. We're all

00:40:28 --> 00:40:30

new Muslims. Let's have a new Muslim barbecue.

00:40:30 --> 00:40:32

Does anybody know lafatiha? No, I don't know

00:40:32 --> 00:40:33

it yet.

00:40:34 --> 00:40:34

Right?

00:40:35 --> 00:40:37

Because they're in the this is happening day

00:40:37 --> 00:40:40

after day in the 1,000, so you can't

00:40:40 --> 00:40:42

imagine that they're all like hufa of the

00:40:42 --> 00:40:44

Quran now, or they know Islam in and

00:40:44 --> 00:40:46

out now, or they know the struggles that

00:40:46 --> 00:40:48

went through. They're all just fresh Muslims.

00:40:49 --> 00:40:51

Barely any knowledge of what's going on.

00:40:51 --> 00:40:52

Right?

00:40:52 --> 00:40:55

So even though this is a great victory,

00:40:56 --> 00:40:57

it comes with a great danger.

00:40:58 --> 00:41:00

When you grow too fast in a business,

00:41:02 --> 00:41:04

right? When you grow too fast, what's the

00:41:04 --> 00:41:04

danger?

00:41:06 --> 00:41:07

Quality drops.

00:41:08 --> 00:41:10

You have a restaurant, they make the best.

00:41:10 --> 00:41:12

Oh my God, the best shawarma.

00:41:14 --> 00:41:16

SubhanAllah, I'll do hijrah for that shawarma.

00:41:18 --> 00:41:20

And then they're so successful, what do they

00:41:20 --> 00:41:20

decide to

00:41:21 --> 00:41:23

do? Go for the 2nd location.

00:41:23 --> 00:41:24

But the 2nd location,

00:41:25 --> 00:41:26

they

00:41:26 --> 00:41:28

got like a chef

00:41:28 --> 00:41:31

who's not exactly like the first chef, barely

00:41:31 --> 00:41:31

trained,

00:41:32 --> 00:41:33

what happens to the quality of the second

00:41:33 --> 00:41:34

location?

00:41:35 --> 00:41:37

Drops. Now they're losing sales so they send

00:41:37 --> 00:41:38

a better chef to that one cause this

00:41:38 --> 00:41:40

one is already successful. What happens to this

00:41:40 --> 00:41:41

big one?

00:41:42 --> 00:41:43

Oh my God, the more you're spreading, the

00:41:43 --> 00:41:44

more you're what?

00:41:45 --> 00:41:46

The quality is dropping.

00:41:47 --> 00:41:49

You know, the great fall of the Roman

00:41:49 --> 00:41:51

Empire, if you study the logistical fall of

00:41:51 --> 00:41:52

the Roman Empire, is because they got too

00:41:52 --> 00:41:53

big.

00:41:54 --> 00:41:56

It was too difficult to ship supplies and

00:41:56 --> 00:41:57

get resources everywhere.

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

That's why they couldn't maintain control.

00:42:01 --> 00:42:03

Expansion is not always a good thing.

00:42:04 --> 00:42:06

Sometimes there's a community of Muslims, very small,

00:42:06 --> 00:42:08

they're operating out of

00:42:09 --> 00:42:10

what used to be a 7:11 but they

00:42:10 --> 00:42:11

took it over and they turned it into

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

a masjid and

00:42:14 --> 00:42:17

it's all good, close knit, everybody knows each

00:42:17 --> 00:42:17

other,

00:42:18 --> 00:42:20

you know, great great vibe, great positive energy

00:42:21 --> 00:42:22

and they raise a lot of money

00:42:23 --> 00:42:24

and they build a gigantic

00:42:24 --> 00:42:25

center

00:42:26 --> 00:42:28

and with gigantic centers come gigantic politics

00:42:30 --> 00:42:31

and then new people come in the community.

00:42:31 --> 00:42:33

Every week you see people you never saw

00:42:33 --> 00:42:33

before,

00:42:34 --> 00:42:36

right? And everybody with their own opinions, their

00:42:36 --> 00:42:37

own ideas.

00:42:38 --> 00:42:41

And even though it's much larger building,

00:42:41 --> 00:42:42

and much larger

00:42:42 --> 00:42:43

individuals,

00:42:44 --> 00:42:46

their the quality of the community experience

00:42:47 --> 00:42:48

was enhanced or reduced?

00:42:49 --> 00:42:50

It got reduced.

00:42:50 --> 00:42:52

It actually got reduced.

00:42:52 --> 00:42:54

Islam just became victorious. This sounds like a

00:42:54 --> 00:42:55

good good thing.

00:42:56 --> 00:42:57

This sounds like a really good thing. But

00:42:57 --> 00:42:58

this comes with the danger.

00:42:59 --> 00:43:01

Not everybody is going to be able to

00:43:01 --> 00:43:03

keep up with the expectations, even the minimal

00:43:03 --> 00:43:05

expectations of Islam. So by the end of

00:43:05 --> 00:43:06

it, it's not even about,

00:43:11 --> 00:43:12

It's not about that anymore. It's about

00:43:13 --> 00:43:15

even those who believe and at least do

00:43:15 --> 00:43:17

good deeds among them,

00:43:17 --> 00:43:19

they have also been promised.

00:43:24 --> 00:43:26

Allah has promised them forgiveness and a great

00:43:26 --> 00:43:27

reward also.

00:43:28 --> 00:43:29

This is similar to what Allah will say,

00:43:32 --> 00:43:34

If you keep obeying Allah and His Messenger,

00:43:34 --> 00:43:36

Allah will not take away your good deeds.

00:43:37 --> 00:43:39

So the sacrifices of those who led to

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

this is one thing, but the people that

00:43:42 --> 00:43:44

are coming into Islam in the tens of

00:43:44 --> 00:43:45

1,000,

00:43:46 --> 00:43:47

those people,

00:43:47 --> 00:43:49

Allah says, at least have faith and do

00:43:49 --> 00:43:51

good deeds, and you'll also

00:43:51 --> 00:43:52

have reward.

00:43:52 --> 00:43:53

You understand?

00:43:53 --> 00:43:55

So there's a difference in quality between

00:43:56 --> 00:43:56

the 2.

00:43:57 --> 00:43:58

And this is actually

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

the concluding statement Allah makes.

00:44:04 --> 00:44:06

The final thing I'll mention to you is

00:44:06 --> 00:44:08

Allah didn't just mention Maghfirah, Allah also mentioned

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

ajr.

00:44:10 --> 00:44:12

And this is something that Allah has done

00:44:12 --> 00:44:14

throughout the surah. 1st he said, you're gonna

00:44:14 --> 00:44:16

you're gonna open up Allah has given you

00:44:16 --> 00:44:17

a victory so Allah can forgive you and

00:44:17 --> 00:44:19

Allah will give you great spoils.

00:44:19 --> 00:44:22

And now in the spiritual sense we want

00:44:22 --> 00:44:24

we want forgiveness from Allah, and we want

00:44:24 --> 00:44:25

forgiveness is not enough.

00:44:27 --> 00:44:29

You know, we want reward too, we want

00:44:29 --> 00:44:30

both.

00:44:30 --> 00:44:32

Let me give it to you by analogy.

00:44:32 --> 00:44:33

Let's say you were in trouble with the

00:44:33 --> 00:44:35

law, and the judge forgave

00:44:36 --> 00:44:38

you. The judge forgave you. Okay. You can

00:44:38 --> 00:44:39

go back to being homeless now,

00:44:40 --> 00:44:41

but at least you're forgiven.

00:44:42 --> 00:44:44

No, no, no. I don't just want to

00:44:44 --> 00:44:44

be forgiven,

00:44:45 --> 00:44:46

I want to be a millionaire.

00:44:48 --> 00:44:50

I want the goods too. Just forgiven means

00:44:50 --> 00:44:51

you're not in trouble.

00:44:52 --> 00:44:54

But that doesn't mean you got into jannah,

00:44:54 --> 00:44:55

that just means you're not in jahannam.

00:44:57 --> 00:44:58

Right?

00:44:58 --> 00:45:00

So now you're not in jahannam, and you

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

see other people go into the jannahay, you're

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

like,

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

Aww

00:45:04 --> 00:45:04

Ashabul

00:45:05 --> 00:45:06

a'raf, right?

00:45:06 --> 00:45:07

They're not punished,

00:45:08 --> 00:45:10

but they're also not what?

00:45:11 --> 00:45:11

Rewarded.

00:45:12 --> 00:45:13

They're also not rewarded.

00:45:14 --> 00:45:16

So Allah says, Allah has promised them forgiveness.

00:45:16 --> 00:45:18

Okay, okay. That means they're not punished.

00:45:18 --> 00:45:21

But Allah also adds, wa ajrana alima, and

00:45:21 --> 00:45:22

a huge reward also,

00:45:23 --> 00:45:24

a huge compensation also.

00:45:25 --> 00:45:27

And that's the that's the remarkable conclusion of

00:45:27 --> 00:45:30

this surah. InshaAllah, I'll give you one more

00:45:30 --> 00:45:31

session today,

00:45:32 --> 00:45:34

after this break. And what I want to

00:45:34 --> 00:45:36

read to you is some of the immediate

00:45:36 --> 00:45:37

events

00:45:37 --> 00:45:38

right after

00:45:39 --> 00:45:40

this Surah.

00:45:41 --> 00:45:42

Some of them I will skip for another

00:45:42 --> 00:45:45

time, like the the Khaybar incident meaning the

00:45:45 --> 00:45:46

russus salallahu alaihi wa sallam went back and

00:45:46 --> 00:45:47

he conquered Khaybar

00:45:47 --> 00:45:49

which were multiple forts. I won't go into

00:45:49 --> 00:45:50

details of that

00:45:51 --> 00:45:53

but I will go into details of how

00:45:53 --> 00:45:54

the tribes

00:45:54 --> 00:45:56

broke how the Maqans broke the treaty

00:45:57 --> 00:45:59

which led to the conquest of Mecca. We'll

00:45:59 --> 00:46:00

talk a little bit about the breaking of

00:46:04 --> 00:46:07

tree. Alumu alaikum, everyone. There are almost 50,000

00:46:07 --> 00:46:10

students around the world that are interested on

00:46:10 --> 00:46:11

top of the students we have in studying

00:46:11 --> 00:46:14

the Quran and its meanings and being able

00:46:14 --> 00:46:15

to learn that and share that with family

00:46:15 --> 00:46:17

and friends, and they need sponsorships, which is

00:46:17 --> 00:46:19

not very expensive. So if you can help

00:46:19 --> 00:46:20

00:46:29 --> 00:46:30

world over.
