Isn't this something that's supposed to be heard yet to either MIT, you're not wondering about it. You're not being brought close. You're not reaching conviction. This is our first failure. When we say oh is the OMA is going in a bad direction. What do we do? Well, the Prophet was given a formula. Here's Step one, but I want step 17. No, step one. Yeah. So are they him hayati?

00:00:29--> 00:00:40

So we did me and Finn, fee and min. But I will tell you now a little bit about the I'll introduce this now. But we'll go into detail tomorrow in sha Allah. And that is

00:00:41--> 00:00:52

that Allah chose a nation since the time of Messiah, they said he chose a nation to be the carriers of His Word. That was the sons of Israel.

00:00:53--> 00:01:16

He chose them and he gave them his book at all right? And they were chosen and given preference over all other nations in the world. This is what the Quran itself tells us. Okay, we'll follow Malcolm at that. I mean, we gave you preference over all other nations. No other nation had this many prophets. No other nation had this many chances to live by it and demonstrate the truth of Allah's book

00:01:17--> 00:01:53

over time, not all the Israelites, but a group among them developed a certain kind of superiority complex. Okay? Now, this is really important, we hate it. When somebody quotes something from the Quran, and says all these Muslims, this is what they believe. You see, it says, like some of our, you know, back home, these Muslims, look at what it says in their Qur'an. It says kill them, wherever you find them. This is what they believe. They want to kill you, wherever they find you, says right here in your book.

00:01:56--> 00:02:41

We hate that because we know that's, you're taking it out of context. You don't know what that means. And you could have just asked one of us, but you would rather quote something out of place, and then we get really offended. We shouldn't do that to their books. Because we hate it ourselves. We shouldn't take one quote from the Bible here. One quote from the Bible says, look at what these people believe. Look at what's in their book. Look, you're not That's not fair. That's not fair. And when some Muslims do something bad, and they say all Muslims are like this, we hate it. But if some Jews or some Christians do something wrong, and we take the Psalm and say what all Christians are

00:02:41--> 00:03:06

like this, all we hate it. Is that justice. Is that fair? Is that a double standard? We should be people of justice. The Quran is actually extremely just in the way it deals with the Christians and the Jews. And our relationship with the Jews. And our relationship with the Christians is very interesting. In the Quran. It's not one relationship is multiple relationships. It was that one relationship.

00:03:07--> 00:03:35

On the one hand, one of the audiences of the Quran or the rabbis and the priests as one specific audience. They're called a halal Kitab in the Quran. Allah talks to them and says, what? And look it up. And that's referring not to all Christians and all Jews, who's referring to the rabbis and priests, our religion, the book targeted the most knowledgeable people in the religion and had a conversation with them. That's number one.

00:03:36--> 00:03:45

Another audience in the Quran is the historical Jews and the historical Christians, some of them who made some very serious mistakes.

00:03:46--> 00:04:08

And he criticizes the some of them that made very serious mistakes, by the way, in Islamic history since the prophets most of them are there are some Muslims and Muslim nations and governments that made very serious mistakes. Yeah. Now, though, what we like to do when we talk about Islamic history, we talk about Salahuddin, like we talk about a social worker armor of man.

00:04:09--> 00:04:13

Okay, golden years fast forward, Salahaddin. Fast forward right now.

00:04:14--> 00:04:29

And all the chapters of Islamic history that are not so glorious, where we did so not so nice things where we may have committed some part of genocide, or we may have colluded and done something wrong. We kind of skipped those chapters and

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

we'll say by your V is,

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

are you have to go to work.

00:04:36--> 00:04:53

And you look yours. Oh, Ma, even though you don't? What can you tell me the history of the Oman the last 200 years? 300 400 500 600 700 800 years? Can you tell me? Can you tell me what the rule was like? Can you tell me what? You No, no, no, but overall, we were good.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

Overall, they were bad overall. We were good. You know what that is? That's delusional thinking.

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

And that's dishonesty, that's intellectual dishonesty.

00:05:03--> 00:05:12

The Israelites had a, an issue. Some of them, they looked at their history and only focused on the good parts.

00:05:14--> 00:05:25

Oh, look, we're the people of Ibrahim. We're the people of Musa, we're the people of this, the people of this Allah spoke to us on the mountain. We're so special because of this reason, this reason, this reason, this reason? And what did they skip?

00:05:27--> 00:05:42

The embarrassing parts of their history, they skip those parts. Not all of them did this. But some of them did this, by the way, does that sound like a familiar disease? The Muslims have selective citation of history, that we develop our psychology based on selective chapters of history. Yeah.

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

Why is the prophet telling us you're going to become like them?

00:05:48--> 00:05:56

Say, and then what what does Allah do in the Quran, especially in subtle Bacara, he highlights a part of their history that they don't like to talk about.

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

He highlighted the ugly chapters of Israelite history. And that even said, Well yeah, for anchor feet, and by the way, there's a lot that I'm skipping.

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

There's a lot more, but this is this should be enough for you to get the point.

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

There's, there's a lot more dirty laundry.

00:06:14--> 00:06:45

But why was ALLAH doing this? It was not to humiliate the Israelites. It was actually to teach Muslims something, which is what be honest with yourselves. And then the other part of the Israelites history in the Quran. So we've got to the rabbis and the priests being talked to selective history being addressed, among some of them. The third, there are heroes in Israelite history, that are our heroes, not just their prophets. What about a human being as a matter of would it be even Agatha?

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

When Muslims are about to go into the battle of orchid, you know who their inspiration was in the Quran? Those who fought alongside the Israelite prophets, or they, the Israelites? These were the Jews of that time they were be considered and the Muslims of that time.

00:07:02--> 00:07:42

And they are our inspiration in the Quran. Actually. So what I'm saying is we think that the Quran paints one stroke one picture of the who the Jews are one picture of who the Christians are in the Quran, that is absolutely not the case. In some places have certain groups highly critical, and some places have certain groups praising in some analysts in the current times and the Muslims would have been like, Okay, now we know something about the historical Jews, some of them were praiseworthy, some of them were criticism worthy. But what about the Jews were living within Medina What about them? Allah says woman home money into a man who became thought and you are the like, woman nominee

00:07:42--> 00:07:52

into a man who did not lie about the like among them are people if you trust it done with piles and piles of wealth, they will give it back to you 100%.

00:07:53--> 00:07:59

And among them, there are those if you give them even one penny, they will not give it back to you.

00:08:01--> 00:08:29

And the second group, so the first one, and by the way, he mentioned the honest ones first. He prioritized the honest ones. He even said about them when my fr lumen hired him for the new crew, the good deeds they do they will not be denied of them as Quran the Quran and then he said and the ones that will not even give you back one penny he said one thing about them. He said that he can be a non pioneer Lisa Allina Filomena Sabine that's because they said when it comes to the jet alone mean

00:08:30--> 00:08:39

you heard the word alone mean Lisa Elena Phil Omiya has to be among when it comes to these uneducated people these on blessed people

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

we don't owe them anything.

00:08:43--> 00:09:10

So among them an extreme group came not all of them but an extreme group came within them and what beliefs did they develop they developed a belief that if you steal from the consider the rest of the world impure not just okay the ones that were pure or the the Israelites everybody else is not just and if since they're not just if they if not just steals from me, if an impure one steals from me, they better pay me back. But if I steal from them, I don't have to pay them back.

00:09:12--> 00:09:20

And they develop that mentality and the Quran came in what? attack that mentality. Those are the ones that can't be trusted now. Fast forward.

00:09:22--> 00:09:26

I'm in Europe, from place in a country that shall not be named.

00:09:28--> 00:09:31

And I met a brother was like, mashallah, I'm,

00:09:32--> 00:09:48

I have one son, who says Muhammad was a beautiful name. I was like, Yeah, but I told the government I have four sons and I spelled Muhammad MUHAMOHA mo uha with a double m with a single M. And I get benefits for four sons.

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

I collect for checks from the kuffaar

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

Mashallah,

00:09:55--> 00:09:57

I don't even pay rent hamdulillah

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

How's it go?

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

They sadly enough in Domina, Sabine.

00:10:05--> 00:10:09

I've heard this I've seen this before you can steal from them because they're want

00:10:11--> 00:10:12

to go further notice, because

00:10:14--> 00:10:19

this was something that we the Quran criticized this about a group of people before,

00:10:20--> 00:10:21

but whose behavior is this?

00:10:23--> 00:10:28

This is now not all Muslims, but some Muslims. Absolutely. Absolutely their behavior.

00:10:29--> 00:10:40

So, this mentality, this mindset is actually what the Quran criticizes, however, now, among them were those who said these are mean are less

00:10:41--> 00:11:23

than they developed other narratives. The Abraham had two children. The children of Orville Linnaeus is the children of Isaac and the children of Ishmael is heart and a smile and they developed an entire literature, how smiley there's not even legitimate, which is, according to the Bible, not true. He is legitimate in the Bible, always smile is not really his son, or a smile is the cursed son. So all of his children are going to be what? They are going to be cursed. Right? The child the curse line of Ishmael ever even heard sermons and churches about that, the coastline of Ishmael then they developed some of the develop this concept of the non non Jews being go yam go Yam is their

00:11:23--> 00:11:57

word for me. uneducated, unlettered, they don't know what the what he is. But they became so extreme, some of them became so extreme, even the Jews among them that did not belong to their elite class. They were also called to go yam over it also called Oh, mean. So they get even more exclusive. Now, of course, Muslims don't do this. Muslims don't have some group that says, everybody were the right ones. Everybody else is going to join them. And then eventually, they say we're the only few Muslims that are right. And all the other Muslims 72 sects are all going to burn in Jana. Thank God, I belong to the special Golden Club.

00:11:59--> 00:12:30

Motorhead club, right? Because everybody else is this. They're just nudges. I don't know, I don't even know if I should pray next to these people. I don't even know if I can say salam to them or so forget their, their condescending view of the rest of humanity. They even developed a compass it's condescending, you have fellow believers. And this is not new. This happened already in what history and Israelite history and our Prophet told us that we are under sunnah Levine, I'm an obstacle, you will end up following the ways of the people who came before you.

00:12:32--> 00:13:17

Allah says in this ayah, he sent a messenger he raised them among who the only Yin, the people that the Israelites considered what? Notice, the people that were unworthy the people from the curse line of his mind. In the previous era, he used the word and could dues, the holy, the pure, and the Israelites believed because of that name, who did he make pure? them. Some of them even develop this fatwa? That because whoever stood under the mountain, and their children are forever pure, and whoever was not under the mountain, their children are forever impure. Cool. So now Allah takes this concept of superiority and says, By the way, I'm going to send a messenger and who am I going to

00:13:17--> 00:13:18

send it among?

00:13:19--> 00:13:29

The Omean will be on me by the way, really cool word. really epic word on me has a couple of meanings one belonging to a certain nation from Amma.

00:13:30--> 00:13:56

So these are nationalistic people, or ethnic peoples. But Omar also means getting the whole Hara German Oh, me. As if he knows nothing like he the day he came out of his mother, oh means mother right? Only means so uneducated, so unknowledgeable, about the word about the revelation about God about prophets, as if he just came out of his mother, no background, no, no history, no, no intellectual scholarly history nothing.

00:13:58--> 00:14:04

Allah decided to send a messenger among these people. Could Allah have sent a messenger among the Roman Empire

00:14:05--> 00:14:28

among the Greeks who have a history of philosophy among the Chinese who have poetry literature, among the Indians who have the Sanskrit philosophies, and they were the Persians. There were so many civilizations in the world that have long standing intellectual histories and empires and civilizations. And the one place in the world that was forgotten that nobody knows about nobody cares is what?

00:14:29--> 00:14:40

That Arabian Desert man there's a there's a Roman Empire on this side. There's the Persian Empire on that side. There's the obsidian empire on that side, and even they don't care that you're in the middle because this is sand.

00:14:42--> 00:15:00

They don't want to expand into this territory. Let them be let and let the shepherds do their thing. Let these camel herders do their thing. Who cares about them? They are a forgotten chapter of history. When you go across the college when you go across the desert of the Hejaz. Did you see Ancient Palaces? Did you see the Roman

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

The ruins of great civilizations you see, nothing. These people have no education, no background. And they just go and they go to they go towards Syria, and they go towards Yemen. And they do their little trade. Sometimes they end up in Roman territory near Syria. Sometimes they go towards the Africa and do a little bit of Trebek a little bit of money here make a little bit of money there. And they're a great city is a city that happens to have a well, that's like, Oh my God, you're in my co workers nice. You gotta well

00:15:31--> 00:15:32

he's got Bert rock.

00:15:33--> 00:15:44

It's got insanely hot tempered how many people been to Makkah? Does it look like a tourist attraction? If it wasn't for the haram? Would you have what a human being have any reason to go to Mecca? If it wasn't for the Kaaba?

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

Like why

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

would you go there?

00:15:50--> 00:15:57

verse Allah, you would rather people walk people get up late for the horse Allah so they end up praying inside the mall, so they don't have to pray.

00:15:59--> 00:16:06

Because the beating Sandman the beating and among them, Allah sent a messenger among them.

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

Firstly describes is the ultimate King of all kings. And then he takes the most forgotten the most, like, kind of unimportant part of the world map.

00:16:19--> 00:16:52

You know, the, the insignificant part of the world map and says, Yep, right here. Why? Because 1000s of years before, there was a man named Ibrahim Ali, who built his house in this unknown desert and made a dua 1000s of years ago. Yeah, Allah send a messenger among these people, and bring people's hearts towards this hot desert where nobody's heart would want to go, people will rather go to Hawaii, they would rather go to California, they would rather go to Switzerland, they would rather go to New Zealand, they would rather go anywhere else, not here.

00:16:53--> 00:17:27

But Your love, bring people's hearts here and give them give Send a messenger here 1000s of years ago, there was no recorder at the time. There was no microphone. There was no camera that recorded this there was no writer who wrote this down. It was just him and God talking ya Allah send a messenger among these people that are going to settle here. That's the store and 1000s of years after that. What does Allah do? He decides to send among these people who have been pagan for Sunday. And by the way, the house that Ibrahim built is surrounded by what? Idols for centuries, these are pagan people. Even if we lived at the time you're like, Oh, my should you go into normal

00:17:27--> 00:17:47

machine cooler, not just the machine cooler, not just They're filthy, with what the Quran describes, and people have sugared or dirty because spiritual dirt is on them. So the Israelites consider them unworthy, dirty. Look, the pagans, their idol worshipers look at what they believe these false religions. And among them, Allah decides to send a messenger

00:17:48--> 00:18:26

to Han Allah. What a decision Aloma hate the King of all kings and the way he's going to describe that decision, that he licked them. It's not even and I know it's time he could have, he could have been an Arab, from among them, but he was raised in the Rome among the Romans. So he knows higher society, you know, or he was raised among the Greek or he was raised among the Persians. So he gets to know what royalty is like, you know, like Musa alayhis. Salam was among the Israelites, but he was raised where he was raised in the palace. So Allah could have raised the prophets, I saw them in a palace somewhere, and then he can come and bring higher education to his people. No, he was raised

00:18:26--> 00:18:38

within them. He's from them, and he's within them, the highest education the human being humanity ever received as the word of Allah. And it came in a place that was the least educated arguably on Earth.

00:18:39--> 00:19:15

That's where it began from absolute zero, from absolute zero. And from there. Today, you and I are sitting here. It's Panama. Guys, sorry for the interruption in the middle of this lecture. Just before you continue, I want to let you know and encourage you that I want you to sign up for Boehner tv.com and help others sign up or even sponsor students for being a tv.com. So we can create worldwide communities of students that are studying the meanings and the benefit and the wisdom of the Quran. And our inshallah Allah spreading that in their own circles. Thanks so much. In Iron number two of sorts of Juma Allah will not just introduce us where and how he raised this messenger,

00:19:15--> 00:19:56

which we talked about in the last session, Allah will introduce us to four things that the messenger is going to do, his mission is being summarized as four tasks, okay. And this is almost as if there's, there's what he's supposed to do, what his goal is, is actually mentioned in surah, two stuff and the previous surah Allah mentioned, what is the goal of sending the messenger but every time you have a goal, you have to have a method. So you can reach that goal, right you have to have a formula of practice to reach that goal like to make it super simple. If somebody says, I want you to become good enough so you can join the team, right, then they have to have a training program,

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

some kind of formula they have to follow. Then they can get there. What is the regimen?

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

And then he's going to follow this idea is about the method, the process of the Prophet sallallahu. I use it. And before we get into that process, I just want you to know that this process is forever true. Like this isn't just, it was started by the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. And then it was passed down for until Judgment A for the OMA to learn that this is the process to do what this is the process to bring about change. Now there are two kinds of change, there's change inside a person, and there's change inside society. You see around you, someone who was not praying, they were drinking alcohol, they were basically kind of practically not a Muslim. And then something

00:20:42--> 00:21:17

changed. And they became a completely different person, the way the people they hang out with the way they spend their time, their prayers, their drinking and eating habits, everything changed they, there was a revolution inside them. And they became a completely different individual, right? That's personal change. And then because of that one person, maybe their friends, some of them started changing, maybe their community started changing a little bit, right. And those kinds of changes happen every day. There are people that experienced these amazing transformations. So many of you have come up to me and told me, Hey, I wasn't even praying five months ago, or I wasn't even wearing

00:21:17--> 00:21:56

hijab a year ago, or four months ago, or five months ago, etc. There's changes happening even in this room, and some of you are, and it's not like the changes complete, you're still changing, you're still on the road to change. The problem happens is when we see the world, and we see that it's getting worse, right? And disobedience to Allah is increasing and chaos is increasing. And shamelessness is increasing and disbelief is increasing and confusion is increasing, we get depressed, because we see the big picture looks worse and worse and worse. And when you look at the big picture, it does look pretty depressing. And what that does is it makes you blind to the

00:21:56--> 00:22:36

individual changes. Because it feels like the individual changes are not enough. Because real change is when it happens on a very large scale. If you think about the life of the prophets of Allah, Allah, if Allah wanted big change to happen from the beginning, Allah would have sent the Prophet size for them to the economic or the political capitals or centers of the world. What Allah sent the prophets, I saw them to a place that was not an economic player, not a cap, not a political player, not a social player, not a cultural player, not an educational center. It was not a contributor to the world. You could say about the Chinese, they were contributing silk, or they were contributing

00:22:36--> 00:23:13

other fine goods or arts to the world. You could say things about the Romans, the Persians, though other civilizations were players on the world scene, right, and trade and craft and civilization and empire building all of it. What were the what were the ancient Arabs doing in the desert? Like they had some empires back in the day, some large stretches of Empire, but that was gone for centuries and centuries, right? They were not players on the world stage. So and even the changes that the Prophet brought Sal, Allahu Allahu Salam, and the Quran that kept teaching this message. What's the what are some of the Quran is greatest heroes? There are people like know how they set up. And if

00:23:13--> 00:23:50

you study the life of know how they Salam and you say, I want to see the big change that was brought by new Hyundai Saddam, like, what's his progress report after 10 years? And what's the you know, because you're in your company, you have to have a progress report, right? How much? How much more did your sphere of influence grow? After 50 years? 100 200 300 400 950 years? Where's the progress? You didn't even make progress with your own son? What is this? You don't call this, but they are heroes in the Quran. And Ibrahim rallies, Sudan, this is called the religion of Ibrahim Ali salaam couldn't even convince his own dad, goodie. And Yaqoob are they said, I'm quitting convinced his own

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

sons for a long time. You couldn't do that. And Allah salAllahu Salam was sent to the Quraysh. And the vast majority of them for the first 13 years that they believe or not, no vast majority of them didn't believe. But the few people that did believe the few people that did believe are actually the reason we're Muslim today. Those few people, what is the Quran teaching us about change, change has not come at the hands of the millions. Change comes at the hands of the few. It is actually individual transformation that is vital. That is the most important objective. Actually the victory from Allah and the millions of people accepting Islam and all that stuff that's in the hands of

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

Allah. That's in the hands of Allah, what individuals have to experience in the missions of the prophets is actually to bring about an individual transformation, these ayat are about the process of an individual transformation. How does the person Transform and when we learned that properly, then then you can see how a family might transform. And when you learn that enough then you

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

could see how a community might transform. And so this is actually it has it starts like a pebble when you throw it in the water. It's one pebble, but it has ripples and ripples and ripples and ripples. But the first thing is actually the individual transformation, isn't it? And that's what this idea is actually about how this how did this transformation actually takes place in the hearts of these individuals, and it's going to be based on four steps. These are the four steps of the Prophets bringing about this transformation that Allah gave him. So if you if you think about the especially the last name of Allah and Hakeem and his wisdom, he decided that this should be the

00:25:35--> 00:26:18

strategy to bring about consistent change. So it begins with yet Lou, are they him IRT he reads on to them is ayat and this is probably where we're going to take our discussion today this far and then we'll do the other three steps tomorrow inshallah and complete this read so tada yet Lou yet Lu Allah him we we said he narrates the IR or he reads the IR to onto them. A Telugu is used for young animals which follow their mother Well, I told him our wallet do not buy their cars till weaning, wherever the mom goes, the baby follows. You know, some babies are difficult, like Afghan babies, right? They run away from their parents, but some babies are very clearly so wherever the mom goes,

00:26:18--> 00:26:55

Mama Mama, Mama, like they just kind of the you don't even have to put a tracker on them or nothing. There's just automatic magnetic field, right? And some some kids you have to literally tie them up with a now they come with baby leashes. I've seen those things now. Right so that the kid doesn't, you know, disappear. But when it was certain animals, they know that if they stray away from the mother, they're gonna get killed, so they just stick very close to the mother. They follow her step by step. Those kinds of animals are called delune. Tula is the remainder of a thing, meaning what follows behind the thing, though here to show you an mutton the tender is to follow something

00:26:55--> 00:27:37

closely or repeatedly that terbaru Allah even says what was Shamsi either Doha will come at either, Tada Tada in Arabic when the moon follows the sun. The moon follows this, what's the word following comes is data? So what does this word have to do with reading? When someone's reading something their eyes are following to the next word. you're pronouncing this word, but your eyes are already on the next word you're following and following and following, then your fingers and your eyes are following the text. And that's actually called the Dawa, to follow. And Allah used this word really interestingly, because it's actually a contradiction. Only means people that were as uneducated and

00:27:37--> 00:27:52

unlettered as when they came out of their mothers. And he's actually a prophet that's among the Omer Yin. So how is he reciting something? How is he reading something? Allah has given this messenger, the ability to read the Word of Allah in Arabis sense.

00:27:53--> 00:28:15

Meaning that this is not reading from literally a scripture. It's reading from the end, the angel is teaching him how to read. An angel is making him read. And he's actually instead of following a piece of paper, or piece of leather following it, he's actually following the instructions of who Gibreel are they Salam so he's actually still following

00:28:16--> 00:29:00

which is a really powerful expression yet to Eileen, but what is he? What is he reciting? Now, if those of you that are a little bit familiar with Arabic, it's actually yet to do it here I am. The MFI will be he comes first, the Jarrah module with 100 pilfering comes second, but this is macadam. Now I'll speak now will speak in human. What that means is, Allah is saying, he, especially on these people, these only mean he recites meaning the Quran came, especially first targeting these audience from from the miracle. So the Quran will use expressions that are used in Arabic, by these people in their culture. Are you saying that they're used to, it'll use examples that they're used to? It'll

00:29:00--> 00:29:35

use language that they're used to, it's not going to use some high level language, it's going to use the people's language, because he's going to recite, especially for them. Allah the owner of all wisdom, Allah has all knowledge. No, there, there's no knowledge of physics, or chemistry or biology or history or anthropology, any science in the world or beyond the world. There's no knowledge that Allah doesn't have. And you know, the more someone knows, the more complicated their speech becomes. Have you ever tried talking to a PhD, son a normal conversation? Because their vocabulary causes headaches? Right? When they when they speak is just really hard because they don't know how to come

00:29:35--> 00:29:57

down to the rest of the rest of us peasants right? This day up here, right? Well, Allah, knower of all things you would expect will speak in the most complicated ways, because he's the knower of all things. But what did he do? He decided to speak to the least educated people in the world. And very excited to speak to them in a way that they can understand.

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

In the end, so he sent a messenger

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

or who's whose accent whose cultural expressions whose upbringing they're familiar with. So firstly chose the teacher that will be the most familiar to them. And then he chose his words that will be the easiest for them to understand. Why is this important? Because as you will see in the next is tomorrow inshallah Allah is plan was, nobody should say my words are too complicated. I don't get it. Nobody should have done excuse. Because this wasn't sent to scholars it was sent to who? Only in the army, you see, so it was meant for everybody. If Omean can handle it, anybody can handle it. If they can understand it, what excuse you got left, you see, and what did what did the Israelites do

00:30:43--> 00:31:01

with their book? No, no, they told the average follower among these guys, you can read the book. No, no, it's not for you. You're gonna get misguided. Let us read it. We'll tell you what it says. Because if you read it, then you're just gonna go to hell. It's not for you. Alhamdulillah Muslims didn't do that.

00:31:03--> 00:31:27

Tell the average Muslim. No, no, don't read the Quran does not for you. This is for the scholars. They read it. And they'll tell you what it says. Don't try to read it on your own. It's better for you to just listen to some recitation. Put it on YouTube and cook your food. Okay, that's that's for you. Understanding the book that's just for the scholars. This was something the Israelites did and Al Hamdulillah the Muslims don't even Ever think about that. Okay.

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

Anyway,

00:31:32--> 00:31:56

now I will tell you something amazing. What did I tell you about the Israel some Israelites, they started believing they are special. And everybody else is going everybody else's on me. Okay, I'm gonna tell you something. Every time I read these ayat, I feel like it's the first time I'm reading them. This is a long set of ayat. I'm just going to read them and translate them for you and just appreciate what Allah says this is from sonar RAF was Tara Musa coma who segredo Raja Nimi cartina

00:31:57--> 00:32:24

Allah Musa, they Salam chose his people chose 70 People from his, from his people, 70 liters to meet with us. So now Musa alayhis salam you remember the story when they worship the calf? Right Musa left and then behind him, they just ended up worshipping the golden calf right? Now when they did that Allah wanted to hold them responsible. So Allah said, bring your leaders to me, I will speak to them directly.

00:32:26--> 00:32:44

So now he used to speak to who directly before Musa but Allah says, No, I want to speak to your tribe leaders, the elders. So Musa alayhis salam chose how many leaders 70 to meet with Allah. Let me call Athena for our meeting for them. So they came to the mountain to meet with Allah.

00:32:45--> 00:32:47

Then the mountain started shaking

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

for the MA The tomo Raja when the earthquake started rumbling and they're all shaking Musa is there 70 liters that there they think they're about to die boulders are falling from the mountain Musa Elisa Lam spoke God Arab below shake Tara data home Yeah Matt my master if you want it had you wanted you would have killed him already man couple men couple of Aya before we ever came here you would have killed everybody. You would have killed me too. Why are you shaking it like this? I totally gonna be my father. So follow me now. Are you killing us because of what the fools dead among us? Is that what you're doing? You're Rob. He's He's in shock. And he's asking Allah in here.

00:33:24--> 00:34:02

Illa fitna Tokyo's No, no, no, this is nothing but a trial. This is nothing but a test that you're doing with us. Well, then Looby Hellman, Tasha, who attacked him and Tasha, you will test you will go, you will allow whoever you want to be misguided because of this test. And you will allow whoever to be guided because of this test. So one of the lessons here side lesson is when Allah shakes your life up, it will either misguide you or guide you some people get shake, their life shakes up, and they say, You know what? I used to be a Muslim, but Allah shook my life up that said, I don't pray anymore. What's the point? Allah shook my life up, you see, and other people, Allah shakes their

00:34:02--> 00:34:23

life up, and they weren't praying before and all of a sudden, they're in such the right pool they Louis ham and Tisha, what are the Wintershall? With what the shaking? Right? And totally you now you are our protecting friend Foxfield and our Hannah, forgive us, show us your love and care what I'm talking about feeling and you are the best of those who forgives who's to lose speaking right now.

00:34:25--> 00:34:59

Musa is speaking the mountain is shaking. The 70 leaders are with him. He's speaking to Allah. And he keeps speaking work to learn if he had the dunya Hassan, please guarantee for us right for us in this life, beautiful things within Africa and in the next life in now. What do you like? I'll come back to this tomorrow. We turn back to you. How do you who do means to turn back we turn back to you, meaning we're making Toba to you. We came here asking for forgiveness me and these 70 leaders. Now Allah will respond. I want you to remember where this is happening. This is Musa and seven

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

In the leaders of the Israelites and they have come under the mountain and later on some groups of them believed whoever was under the mountain with Musa is forever what? Forever pure everybody else is impure. That's the belief that developed. Now this is the Quran is version of the same story. The Quran retelling the story, listen now Allah will respond. Allah says either either b or c will be here man Asha, my punishment, I will strike it to whoever I want

00:35:30--> 00:35:35

I'll strike my punishment to whoever I want does that you say you're protected from my punishment?

00:35:36--> 00:35:44

And we said no, I will strike my punishment down to but what ultimately was the article luxury but my loving care extends to everything.

00:35:46--> 00:36:31

So my My punishment is targeted, but my Rama is everywhere. Rama doesn't have to be targeted because it's already everywhere but my punishment is targeted and see the difference in language. What I've motivasi I'd called luxury fossa activo Hara Linda Xena cone, then I will guarantee my Rama my loving care for people who have Taqwa who are mindful, when you do not Zakah and they give you in other words what you told us ago they give what they give zakat. When Latina Humby is to be known, and those who believe in Our Ayat, those who believe in our revelations are Ayat, listen to this, who are these people, Allah is still talking on the mountain, and Latina to be our own our Rasul and

00:36:31--> 00:37:11

obedient on me, those who are going to follow the messenger, who's the prophet who is unlettered and let the as you do know who mark to but and our home, the one they find written with them fit Alrighty, well in G in the Torah, and in the NGL, meaning a buyer is telling them on the mountain right now you have thought and later on, there was a there will be a prophet who will give you another book called What? In gene and in both of these books, you will find that there is a prophet coming. He's a prophet, he's a messenger, he's unlettered and he's mentioned in both of these scriptures, and I will guarantee my mercy for you if you follow him

00:37:13--> 00:37:50

under the mountain, under the Yamato homebuilt biography, where the how home and when Katie, that messenger will come, he will tell them to do the right thing and he will stop them from doing the wrong thing. When you do the homework per year bad and he will make good and pure things halaal for them, will you help me more either he will hover is and he will make filthy things, impermissible for them. Well don't run home this law home and he will remove from them their burdens will align and their chains and that he cannot obey Him that used to be on them. Meaning Allah is already telling them you will have a life of burdens and chains and those burdens and chains will be removed

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

by who

00:37:52--> 00:38:01

by the prophet who will come he will come and he will remove those burdens and chains for novena ammonia will be then those who believe in Him and who

00:38:02--> 00:38:28

has the him here. This will allow for him well as his approval and they support him when nosode ovoo and they aid him and they honor Him and they aid him what who know what I love the goon Zilla ma who and they follow the light that was sent that will be sent down with him. What's the light that is sent down with him? And Quran? Wood, eco home wooden muffler home? Those are the people that are successful.

00:38:29--> 00:38:34

This is a conversation about the unabIe allomi

00:38:35--> 00:38:39

That was had first with Musa and his 70 followers.

00:38:40--> 00:38:53

One of the earliest teachings to the followers of Musa de Sudan, the Bani Israel eel and then it was reinforced in which book it wasn't just in Torah, it's where else indeed was given to who

00:38:54--> 00:39:05

that's why ESA says in the Quran, well MOBA Sheeran Bureau sued in Yeah, team member this MOU. I have come to give you good news of a messenger who's coming after me whose name is Ahmed which is in the previous Surah

00:39:06--> 00:39:08

okay, this isn't sort of stuff.

00:39:09--> 00:39:27

So in So Musa is telling of the coming of Mohammed salah, Abu salah, and Isa at this time is coming of the telling of the coming of WA Messiah them. So according to that both the Christian Jewish peoples in their Scripture, the ones who know among them will know that Muhammad is the messenger of allah sallallahu reducido.

00:39:28--> 00:39:36

So when he says he sent among the mean a messenger, people who are loyal to the Scripture will say on them, do you mean

00:39:38--> 00:39:59

he leaves along do you mean every generation of the Israelites from Musa de Sudan, Harun Ali Salam later on in their prophets, like all the Israelites with a BOW and BOW would every one of them follow Torah? And that means every one of them knows who's coming. Maha Muslim is coming. They're waiting. They're waiting. They're waiting. They're waiting all these generations they're waiting

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

and alive and says in Surah Al Baqarah, That he is the Israelites who lived in the region, sometimes they would get into a fight with the machinery of Makkah. And that was you go to Morocco or better fighters. So they would win. And when they would win the you know what they would say, well, cattlemen can do your stuff to your own island or the NACA photo, whenever they would get beat up, they would say, oh, yeah, you won this time.

00:40:19--> 00:40:27

But we've been studying, the last prophet is coming any day now. And once he comes, we're gonna get you so good.

00:40:30--> 00:40:34

They used to say this whenever they lost the fight, that's in the Quran, Soto, Bukhara.

00:40:35--> 00:40:42

And then when analysis for the MA MA, and when whatever they already knew came up, they denied it.

00:40:43--> 00:41:01

They deny that they actually used to use it Stifter of the coming of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe, Salam to the orange. They used to say to that, by the way, all the signs are here, or he's coming, or the MA gives a BA nowadays anytime now. He's so coming right now. And then he came.

00:41:03--> 00:41:44

Now this is yet Lou, I lay him now. Now yet Lou, what do we learn from your clue? This is really important. You know, the Bible will tell us of the prophets. I sell them whatever is left of it, that Allah says about him, I will end what's left of the Bible, I will put my words in his mouth. See the Torah. The Torah is a collection of divine teachings. But it's not precisely the Word of God, not even according to the rabbi's. It's a collection of memories and teachings. The closest thing that we have to that is something like some a hadith or some opinions in fact, Das is a combination of what they consider the word of Allah and Hadith and of C and fic and history all in

00:41:44--> 00:42:00

one UK. You know how in the seat of a Quran you have the ayah and then you have the commentary and Torah. Where does the IR end and where does the commentary begin? They don't make a distinction. So they can't tell. They can't tell that's what happened over time. After I gotta finish my train of thought I'll take your question.

00:42:01--> 00:42:35

But then Allah gave and this is why Allah says Lima Bina Yamuna Talat, or masa de Colima, beignet, ADM, can the Quran confirms what they have in front of them, because what they have in front of them is a huge tradition, the mission of the Torah is a massive tradition, and then the Talmud, it's all mixed together. And this is not because they made changes to the word of Allah, that's a separate problem. Allah did not give them a word that was memorized the way that the Quran has memorized. But they knew a prophet is coming. Who about him? And he said, I will put my words in his mouth, meaning it won't even be his own words, he'll be following the words that are given to him yet to look at

00:42:35--> 00:42:38

him. It Okay, so now

00:42:39--> 00:42:50

if I'm speaking to you, right now, imagine so So, I mean, I think of your German example cuz I don't know any German. Except for ya. And Chanel, but

00:42:56--> 00:42:58

it works in many situations.

00:43:01--> 00:43:03

It's stuck in traffic Cheyenne, like

00:43:06--> 00:43:07

anyway.

00:43:08--> 00:43:21

So mostly said, Okay, so if your child sitting at dinner, your child, memorize some poetry in German, and sat there and started reciting that poetry?

00:43:23--> 00:43:26

Would you believe that that's your own child's words, even though there's no paper in front of them?

00:43:27--> 00:43:36

Can you tell that's not your child's words? Because you know how your child speaks? In fact, even if your parents started doing that, you'd be like, where did you get this?

00:43:37--> 00:43:52

Why did you do this? And if you, if you really think that's them speaking, then you contact the Imam because there's a jinn possession or something. Because when someone speaks out of their normal, you can tell they're not really speaking, they're reading

00:43:53--> 00:44:01

the prophets why Selim has lived among them, so they know how he speaks. But now he's not speaking he is what?

00:44:02--> 00:44:17

Reciting following words that are given to him. Can they tell this is a clear distinction between his speech and the words that are coming out of his mouth are clearly not his? This is why they said why is he talking like this? What is this?

00:44:18--> 00:44:29

Is this Tamala G, this is being dictated to him. Where do you get these words from? His poetry? What is that is that mad? PanDa has such an effect on me is this some kind of magic or something?

00:44:30--> 00:44:35

whoever, whoever listens to this feels like they got possessed. So maybe he's possessed too.

00:44:36--> 00:44:59

They came up with all these theories, because they knew this is clearly not his own speech. There's an author by the name of bas Ahimsa, who's also spoke. He's also been translated into English, who did a search who did a thorough study of 1000s and 1000s, of Hadith of the prophets, Isola. And the speech pattern and Hadith because everybody has a speech pattern. If you listen to my speeches and you transcribe them, there's going to be a lot of right right

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

Right so as a lot of writes in my not enough left lotta right,

00:45:04--> 00:45:41

but that's just my speech pattern. And the the Prophet himself also has a what a speech pattern and they did an analysis of the speech pattern of all the a hadith and the speech pattern of the Quran. And it's clearly two distinct speakers are not the same speaker from just from a speech pattern point of view. Right? So you have to do either him IoT the wording is not his, it is extremely precise, also means there's no compromise in the meaning, you know, if I'm talking to you, I look first at how old you are, or what your question is, and how many people are listening? Is this being recorded or not? Should I completely go off? Or should I just kind of keep my answer contained, I

00:45:41--> 00:46:19

have to read the situation before I open my mouth. We're aware of who we're talking to. But the Prophet SAW Selim is talking to enemies that hate him. And he's not he cannot consider how to speak to them. Because the words are not his, the words are coming from Allah, and they may be even more offensive to the person standing in front of them. But it doesn't matter. He's gonna say them, because they are being dictated to him, you have to obey him at the messenger. So the lesson is actually humble. He's filled on machine. He comes from a humble beginning, and he's a slave of Allah. But the words are the words of a king. So there's the immediate contrast, the speaker is at

00:46:19--> 00:46:56

the lowest level of humility, but the words are in the highest level of pride because they are the words of ALLAH, the owner of all pride, he's on with a cup of beer. And with a cup, it is a terrible quality for a person. But about a cup, it is one of the attributes of Allah because he deserves it. He is the great one. He speaks from the perspective of being great. So the humility of the messenger is combined with the greatness of the word of Allah, which is an amazing thing, because we have to present the Word of Allah with its greatness. But we still have to carry ourselves with humility. The problem happens when we speak about the word of Allah with great news. And we start thinking

00:46:56--> 00:47:38

because of that, we're kind of great Oslo. We're not we're still slaves of Allah. Okay? Then it is meant to be heard, like a royal decree. Actually, it's been recited word for word from the King. So you get this appreciation that it's coming from a higher source. And then of course, it's an open pronouncement. This is this is the most encouraging thing actually in these ayat. And that is that this is an open announcement to even the least learned. And other words this mean, and Allah decided to give his revelations to the Omiya in first, to open up this invitation. So no one gets to say, this is not for me. Because it's for them by then everybody's above that. So it's for everyone. The

00:47:38--> 00:48:14

Quran was meant to be accessible by everyone. You know, one of the common words for the Quran is in zile unsaddle Quran, right? So in Zina houfy data to look at the New Zealand Arabic doesn't just mean to come down in that also means to make something accessible. And for centuries, the Bible wasn't accessible. For most of the Israelites, the Torah wasn't accessible, religious teachings weren't accessible. The teachings of Ibrahim Ali salaam were lost to history and they were not accessible. The truth about the people of the cave was no longer accessible. The stories had been changed, human beings didn't have access to it. And Allah made the Quran by definition, accessible.

00:48:14--> 00:48:46

Everybody can access it, everybody can engage with an open invitation is one of the most revolutionary features of the Quran. And before I leave you, I'm going to tell you my favorite part because we need to finish this part of the discussion. And I'll open it up for QA inshallah. And that is what is I mean, it's why they hate it, they translate, they read, he reads on to them His Verses or his revelations, which is okay, but let's dig into the word is a little bit I really want you to appreciate what the word is, is because it's one of the most important terms in the Quran. And I'll explain what I've written here.

00:48:48--> 00:49:30

It means the specific pneus of something. So from its origin AYATUL Rajat, I'm talking exactly about that person. So something that's very exact can also mean IRA. So Allah is not speaking in ambiguous terms, Allah speaking and very exact precise terms, that a year or two a year to, to direct a course meaning the yatta yatta actually coming later means closer that something that has a purpose. Like if I head towards that door, my body turns towards that door, I keep taking steps that I Yeah. Yell, Bob. He headed towards the door he intended to get to the door. The ayat aren't just interesting bits of information. They are leading you in a direction, they have a purpose. So it's a it's driven

00:49:30--> 00:49:59

by a purpose. Then the word IR comes from hydrogel calm, we'll be IoT him when the Arabs used to travel in the desert, and they would, you know, start a little fire and cook some food. And then when they're done, they pick up their plates and they're there, their forks and whatever, whatever they eat with the meat. They leave the bones. They leave the burnt wood, they leave the ashes and they pick up all the valuable things and they leave. But when somebody else comes they just see the burnt wood and the ashes, but they don't see anything valuable. So they say

00:50:00--> 00:50:41

original column will be IoT him, the people before they left with all the valuable things. They left nothing of value behind what is an IRA? something of value? Something that Allah, he's reciting valuable things to them. And by the way, Allah says there's an IRA in the mountain, there's an IRA inside you, there's an IRA inside the sky, there's an eye and a bird. What does that tell you about everything? Everything, according to this Dean has what? Everything has value. Nothing is purposeless. Everything has meaning. It's not a meaningless existence, you know, at least if home the word a actually means what what kind, curiosity, the word AI actually it embeds the meaning of

00:50:41--> 00:51:27

something that inspires curiosity, that you should hear the eye and say, I wonder what I can learn from that. I wonder what it means. And I use actually for a dad job as you have already covered in class. So attach means amazement, the urge is to say a logical or a word, or a mirage, which means what a man what a child what a woman are, you get out what an amazing book. So he was using an expression of amazement and the ayat are supposed to bring about an amazement like what an amazing thing Allah has said. And Nida. What can be the Caribbean unburied IRA is also used for it's actually similar to English A man, a a you. When you say hey, what are you actually doing?

00:51:28--> 00:52:11

You're calling someone close. And he was actually used. He was also used for Yara jual meaning come here for closeness, meaning the ayat are also calling you. They're also Allah calling you close to yourself, then it's an ADAMA, Adama means it's a sign for something that's very common translation. I Arthur signs right. Now the purpose of a sign is what the purpose of a sign is to give you direction. The sign says take this exit for the street, that tells you here's the sign, here's the exit, right? So the purpose of a sign is to guide you to a destination. When Allah says he recites the ayat, he gives you the signs that guide you to your destination. And what's that destination and

00:52:11--> 00:52:30

that era, because when the final destination is towards Europe, you're going to meet with Allah, whether you like it or not, whether you intend to or not, you're going to meet with Allah. But if you want to meet him the right way, this is the right way. This is the right way to meet with Allah. And then E unsubbed. What Yeah, oh, who personally was the who?

00:52:31--> 00:52:37

This is actually really cool. Ear in Arabic calm comes from the same word as it actually means beauty and

00:52:38--> 00:52:55

blooming like I want to flower blossoms. It's actually called it Yeah, I would not. Yeah, so the ayat are actually something beautiful. And the more you ponder them, the more they blossom, their lessons blossom. That's inside of the word IRA. And a E, I didn't mention the E is actually non

00:52:56--> 00:53:03

in Arabic, you will have heard of the word non before. Now it means what? Yeah, okay, good.

00:53:04--> 00:53:08

Now, there's another word in Arabic for Yes. Which is E.

00:53:09--> 00:53:25

E. So if somebody says, hey, you know, did you did you go to this program? E is the same as now. But it's a stronger e Absolutely, yes. Which means it is the yes of conviction, the IO will lead to conviction.

00:53:26--> 00:54:00

The IO leads to absolute certainty yet to either him IoT, and then unmonitored, then you're gonna call him and anything that comes from this route is actually supposed to be something that stays it's permanent. It's not a fad. It's not, it doesn't go away. It's not like Allah will send his eye out and they will disappear. They are to remain they are permanent decrease from Allah. That's all inside the word IO. Allah gave us something of meaning something of purpose, something a wonder something or call us causes directly, something that inspires curiosity, something that gives us conviction, something that is beautiful, something that blossoms and the messenger will recite this

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

on to the people and it will open up their mind and will make them thoughtful, beautiful people. You have to either MIT, that's the first step. And to end this, this part of it. If you were just listening to something, like if you just change radio stations, or you open up a random tick tock video, wherever you're listening to something, doesn't necessarily mean that you are seriously learning.

00:54:26--> 00:54:27

No, it just means you're exposed.

00:54:28--> 00:54:34

If you overhear something you got exposed, but that doesn't mean you're sitting there taking notes you're just overheard.

00:54:36--> 00:54:39

Yet Lou or the Emirati is actually not education.

00:54:40--> 00:55:00

He's just reading all he's sitting. He's standing in a marketplace reading the IR there's everybody paying attention. No. He's speaking to the Quraysh reciting the IRS. Everybody's like let me listen carefully. No, they're being they're being exposed, even though they're not paying attention or learning or whatever. Some people started listening. Some people became

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

Interesting, some people barely heard anything. Some people heard it and got annoyed, but everybody heard hears it. Right? The first step that was given to the profit slice of them, is make sure every one of these people hears it.

00:55:13--> 00:55:50

Just read it onto them, expose them to it, let them react to it, let them react to it with hate, let them react to it with ignorance, let them react to it with dismissing rather than react to it with curiosity. That's not up to you. Your first job is wild yet to either him iOttie This is the part that makes me mad. It makes me mad because born and raised in a Muslim family, and much of the Muslim world what I started learning about the Quran, actually understanding even at a basic level what it says I was 19 years old. And it made me really angry. How can I was how come I was Muslim for 19 years.

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

And nobody told me what the Quran says.

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

Like, I'm Muslim, I should know.

00:56:01--> 00:56:42

At least I should know what it says from the beginning to the end. I should know what it's nobody did yet Lu either here it might Allah Allah Yeah, I had nobody read the IRS to me like I didn't know. Then I felt like Do other people. Am I the only one who like nobody with the IRS? Let me ask around. You do a the one of the most sad service you can do go to any Muslim country, any Muslim community and ask the average person how much of the Quran Have you forget read, because reading is extra work? How much of the Quran was read to you? So that you can understand it? Because if you say have you read then you have to do the work. But here who's doing the work? The prophets doing the

00:56:42--> 00:56:48

work and people who inherited from the prophets, they're supposed to the ones who know should read it to the ones who don't know, isn't it?

00:56:49--> 00:57:17

So, if we don't know, then we become the Amin and the ones who don't have to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet. So I said, I'm gonna do what you have to do. I am allottee so I asked, So how many of you heard the Quran being explained? Like, even at a basic level? Like Bacara? I don't know. I named Ron This out via an hour off maybe doba and unfelt Allah, you know, good use of anything, anything. And you're like, nobody.

00:57:18--> 00:57:34

Nobody talks. Nobody read the IRS to me. Nobody talked me through the IRS. I didn't hear it. Isn't this something that's supposed to be heard yet to either MIT right? Is this thing they should read the Quran? Or they should they should hear the Quran. This is about hearing. Right?

00:57:36--> 00:57:53

And this feels to me like disappeared from the OMA. This disappeared. You know what took its place? The recitation of the Quran in beautiful voices, millions and millions and millions of listeners around the world are listening to it. But is that yes or no? Are they him IoT?

00:57:54--> 00:58:10

No, because you're not listening to it and saying, This is giving me direction. You're not wondering about it. You're not being brought close. You're not reaching conviction. It's not making you think there's a direction here. This is a sign towards something. It's beautiful divine sign sounds robotica.

00:58:11--> 00:58:50

And those beautiful sounds were supposed to mean something that would have been yet to obey Him. allottee This is our first failure. When we say Oh, Omar is going in a bad direction. What do we do? Well, the Prophet was given a formula. Here's Step one, but I want step 17. No, step one, you have to obey Him. hayati does that, I would imagine, if I can leave a contribution behind. My contribution would be that any of you that have been listening to my work that I've been trying to do for the last 20 or so years, that you become people that do this.

00:58:51--> 00:59:23

And even if you do it among your friends, or among your siblings are just among their children, but you become fully the continuation of what the prophet started when Allah said, Yes, look at him. It just that was that at least expose them, at least they should hear what they what Allah says. At least that much. And then we take the next steps after that shallow toilet. So I'm going to end our session for today here, I get to our humanity, and talk about the next steps tomorrow in sha Allah, but I'll open it up for any questions you guys might have.

00:59:25--> 00:59:50
