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

We'll be human. So you thought you were watching him

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

walk I mean, yet in this way it will have the moral rule now either you have a homerun the blue

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

one you may know XL

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

Villa he was

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

I mean

00:00:33--> 00:00:37

to whom was here to mean either bill

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

to homeless or to belterra

00:00:48--> 00:01:11

rubbish it somebody was simply Emily who looked at me lasagna of cocoa leaf and hamdulillah salat wa salam, O Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah He was married about once again, if you want to know more to come to life, hello Ricardo, I will try today to cover some things I've come to learn from is number 105 106. And 107 of Swords use of this is again, the final passage assert yourself,

00:01:12--> 00:01:41

I probably won't get through the conclusion of 107. But at least there's a tie into 105 and 106. that's necessary to bring up now. So we'll start off on 107 by the end, but we'll continue it in our next session also in Java. So let me start today by doing two things, one to translate these ions briefly and to tie it together with what we've been talking about, or what the IRS have been talking about before this. So let's begin with the translation. Well, now you know XL home ilaha illa Homer chicken,

00:01:43--> 00:02:25

and most of them don't believe in actually the ayah before, okay, I mean, I attend For some it will be a model not only how him and him are doing and how many miracle or how many miraculous sign whether in the skies or the earth that they've passed by that they have passed by. And yet, they, when it comes to those signs are completely oblivious, or they ignore them deliberately. They ignore them deliberately. So less as they ignore the signs, no matter how many there have been that they've passed over, whether they come from the skies in the earth, and they deliberately ignore them. When my umino accelo hoobler. He lahoma shikun. And most of them don't believe in a lot at all, except

00:02:25--> 00:03:06

that they associate partners with him at the same time. So that's an ambiguous statement, and we're gonna have to dig into I mean, no antakya homewatch here tominaga Bella, are they feeling safe? That from this possibility that a hovering an overarching form of the punishment of a law is going to come and attack them to homosassa to Bolton, or the our is going to come and hit them, all of a sudden, it's going to come at them all of a sudden without worrying? Well, home Leia Sharon, while they will have no realization, they won't even realize or have no sense that it's coming. You know, like the idea of a cloud before the cloud before the storm, like you can tell from the changing

00:03:06--> 00:03:43

winds or whatever, that something's coming. But the punishment of a lie and this is as if it will come immediately. So to remind you, when the story of use of Elisa Lam came to a conclusion, and the final comments from UCLA so now we're done in 101. And I am number 102, a lot of talk to the prophets. I said I'm about how this is revelation, and it came directly from him just he couldn't have known this. And from then on. So from 103 onwards, now we're in this passage in the middle of the final passage, where Allah is making a commentary about those who refuse to believe in the profit slice on them. So the first thing he said, is, well, my external nnessee Well, meaning most

00:03:43--> 00:04:18

people no matter how badly how zealous you may be, how badly you may want it, they're not going to believe at all or they aren't believing at all. What am I just a human agent? And you're not the one asking them for any compensation. It's not like you're asking them to, to pay you in a logic rule. I mean, it is nothing but a reminder for all nations and all peoples. This is what we've read so far. And it's a continuation of those same most people who are not going to believe now unless commenting on these people who refuse to believe what he says in this ayah. Okay, you mean I attend For some it would be a moron Runa Allah, and how many asign are there in the skies in the earth at the Passover,

00:04:18--> 00:04:27

and yet they ignore them at home and Mr. de Lune. And even regardless, though, in regards to those signs, they are completely oblivious. The connection to the previous IR is the first thing that should be talked about.

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

Allah is told the prophets I shut up, I have given you this miraculous story that has opened up the news, new e lake. This is from the news of the unseen that we've inspired to you. There's no way you could have known this on your own. This is enough reason for them to believe and the them here I would argue are two primary groups there even maybe even more groups, but two primary groups, the immediate audience of the profits of life setup, which is the kurush. These people who worship idols and have corrupted the religion of Abraham is the second order

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

Audience is actually the Jewish community who is now getting to know that there's a prophet man claiming to have Prophethood, who is talking about our prophets, meaning Moosa use of Abraham. The Michael Quran is talking about the Israelite prophets and so much, that they're now starting to have interactions indirectly with the Quraysh, finding out more and more about what he's claiming. Right. So some narrations even say that, again, authenticity is questionable, but still, they're found in our tradition. They say that they prompted the courage to ask the prophets I said, I'm about the story of use of, right. So the point is, they know what's going on, they know what's up. And so it

00:05:39--> 00:06:12

loads including them in the conversation too. Right? And including all of them, as if realizing no matter how bad you want it, they will they are not believers. Quraysh have become very adamant in their position, they don't care what you have to say. The argument for them has to, you know, that could have been made to convince them as already been made, but you keep going anyway. Then you're being told there are people who believe in Scripture like just like you do, they believe in Joseph, they believe in Abraham, they believe in Isaac and Ishmael they, they have these names, it's not alien to them. So you would think they'll be first in line to believe right? Because when you come

00:06:12--> 00:06:40

into contact with them, you're gonna think that they're gonna want to line up and believe because they're, they have the the good news of the final revelation coming and the final profit coming. This is in their books. So you're the fulfillment of that prayer of theirs that they've been asking for, that they've been begging for. But no, Have I told tomorrow that you mean Lulu? Coca Cola for you coming home? Yes. maroondah calama la familia Harvey funa Hummingbird, the ACMA Hello, how are you really hopeful that they're just going to accept what you're saying. They even changed what they had basically a lesson sort of,

00:06:41--> 00:07:15

like, if you're so hopeful that they're gonna hold on to what you have, they didn't even hold on to what they had. Here a lot makes a different criticism. He says most of them won't believe no matter how hard you want, and they can act like you. You want something from them. The truth is you don't want anything from them. And this is if they don't accept if they don't accept, if the use of the data don't accept, doesn't matter. This message is way bigger than them. It's for all nations of the world. It's gonna reach Indonesia, it's going to reach parts of China, it's going to be in the Africa. It's going to be all over Europe, it's going to be all over Asia. It's not. It's not just

00:07:15--> 00:07:53

for them. And who I love Nicola. I mean, it's bigger than them. But then he says, but you shouldn't feel bad that they don't listen to you. I have sent them many signs before I sent them. How many signs have they seen in the skies in the earth, that they pass by every day? It's not like they're just passing by your revelation and dismissing it as an old story or dismissing it as if you've gone insane, or you've copied it or whatever else, some other rationale to dismiss what you're saying, to undermine the book. Blessing. These people have been dismissing me a lot longer. Because you see, the revelation of the Quran is out of Allah. And the signs inside the skies and the earth are also

00:07:53--> 00:08:34

Ayat of Allah. Allah is giving us what I titled this, this talk today. Strangely, I called it anatomy of corrupted faith. And the reason I said that is because in these ayat Allah is going to show us why is a person according to Allah, what is what is one of the reasons that a person is so set on not believing, no matter what they're exposed to not no matter what evidence they get exposed to, they're just so set on not believing, and Allah is going to take us inside their process and show us what is it that makes them this way? There are other processes and other places in the Quran, this is one of them. So I call this anatomy of corrupted faith. Why corrupted faith? Because

00:08:34--> 00:09:14

actually, every human being has faith to begin with. We were brought we were brought to this earth with it could Lumo luden EULA do Adele Petra Ababa who have we done here? Oh, you know, Sara Lee Oh, you must use it. Every newborn was born on the predisposed nature of believing in Allah, then it's the parents that make them into different religions. Right? So their culture, their upbringing takes them away. Now, what is Allah telling us that a human being when they become thoughtful, when they come up in this world, then they are by nature by by the nature of love created them when they're supposed to be people of reflection, they should contemplate the sky, the earth the breeze. In

00:09:14--> 00:09:53

Moscow, Dino Rossi, actually made a list about, you know, how many opportunities he just wanted to just off the top of his head say, how many opportunities are there in the skies in the earth for us to contemplate just to think where did all this come from? Why am I the beneficiary of it? He said thunder in the sky. Have you ever thought about Thunder or lightning or clouds or rain and snow and wind and rainbows just sat and pondered and what is it that you're looking at? Why is this here? Why is this beautiful phenomenon here? And why is it there to particularly sustain me minerals, and they're very nature's the materials on the earth. This signs in the skies, Scott sighs on the signs

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

on the earth, plants, wood leaves, fruits, each having its own unique nature. its own taste that you

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

It's all special qualities, the diversity of animals in their species on this earth, and the intricate beauty with which they're created. The Anatomy of the human body, the way our minds function and how each faculty benefits us. Any one of those things can make you ponder for ages.

00:10:17--> 00:10:18

We know

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

there are people in the United States and in the Western world in particular,

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

you know, in the universities, people can do PhDs and all kinds of things. There are people that have studied and farms for 30 years, there are people that have studied a certain kind of bird that migrates from the Midwest of the United States, all the way to the east coast, or wherever else, and they've studied which trees they perch on and how they communicate. I was listening to some guy on the radio the other day, talking about how crickets, there are some kinds of crickets in parts of this country where the the speed at which they chirp, you can actually calculate the temperature from the speed at which they chirp. So as it gets colder, their blood flow slows down, their chirps

00:11:00--> 00:11:08

gets slower. And there's actually a formula how many chirps per 12 seconds, and you can calculate what temperature and it'll be laser precise, is this many degrees.

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

And this guy is just studying the sounds of crickets. And calculating that, how many signs are there of intricacies of design of perfection, of wisdom, of beauty, of purpose, you know, of wonder of calculation, of, you know, of measurement all around them, they think everything else can have such intricate order. And such intricate design and their life doesn't have to be in order. There's no code that they have to live by this, the sun has a code, the moon has a code. The rivers have a code, the crystals have a code, but they don't have to live by a code, they can be in utter chaos. So Allah says this, when and why would someone not take the time to contemplate the thing is, when

00:12:00--> 00:12:36

someone's absorbed in themselves? And what food they're going to eat? What what how are they going to grab onto more wealth? How are they going to exert control over someone else? How are they going to fulfill whatever urges they have, for themselves more and more and more for the self, when the self becomes the center of your universe? Then all the signs of the universe you can pass right by them. It's simple example, if you're preoccupied on your phone. And there's the most amazing thing happening, and you're crossing the street. Everybody else saw it, you didn't see it, because your your heads down here, right? You're preoccupied, you can ignore the most amazing things around you.

00:12:37--> 00:12:47

Allah says in this ayah so what if they ignored what you're saying? They've been living a life of being oblivious for a long time. What can a human I attend for Samoa to do Marina

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

de Lune. So this is actually another sort of,

00:12:53--> 00:13:28

you know, constellation and comforting to the Prophet slice. I know that this is not a criticism of you that they don't believe that something, something's short in what you're saying there's a fault or there's something missing, there's a flaw, you know, somehow it's not good enough, what you what you're delivering to them, or you're not good enough to deliver to them. That's not it. That's not it at all. It's just they're just, they don't, they're not paying attention to this. They're deliberately ignoring it, because to them something else is more important. So this is a comment that this is the tricky thing. This is the comment about most people who are refusing to believe Why

00:13:28--> 00:14:14

am I so nasty? Well, O'Hara stabby what we need? Yeah, so now Allah says, most people are too lost in their own world, to even think beyond that. even think about a higher purpose. They're living what my late teacher doctors are used to call. They used to call it an animal existence. Meaning it's a sub human exists. Why? Because birds and squirrels and alligators and cows, they can think about food, shelter and procreation. Right. That's what they think about food, shelter and procreation. And if a human being is only thinking about food, or putting food on the table today, tomorrow, because you know, even a squirrel can gather nuts inside, it's all right. Even a bird can

00:14:14--> 00:14:58

gather, you know, be bears can prepare for hibernation, they can do that. So if your only concerns are food, and then procreation, and then shelter, shelter for them as a nest, or a hole, but for us, it could be a mansion, it could be a newer apartment, right? If this is it, if this is really just it, this is the primary and everything else is really an extension of these things. Right? That if that's that, then your existence is not more much more meaningful than an animal's existence. And there are some people who graduate above that right so they say no, no, no, I don't just care about my food, and my you know, roof over my head and my desires. I want to go and my family I want to go

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

beyond that. You know,

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

Beyond that I'm worried about, there's no stop sign on the corner of my street, or the school is falling apart in my neighborhood, or I don't want this liquor store over here or whatever, they become activists to make their neighborhood better, then some people have a bigger horizon, and they say, I want to make my city better. And then other people get more involved and to say, I want to make my country better. And other people get a lot more involved and say, I want to make the environment better. I want to fight against pollution, I want to fight against the, you know, the the species of animals that are going extinct, I want to fight against corruption, economic

00:15:32--> 00:16:08

corruption, or whatever they take on larger and larger things, right. So the scope, they're not just concerned with themselves, now they're concerned with larger and larger and larger things. And then there is a thing above all of that, too, there's something larger than all of that, which is actually our purpose, the purpose of all of this existence. Right? So that and that is even, and that puts purpose to every other effort, every other endeavor, and that those are people that believe in a cause. And they're even outside of Islam, there are people that just believe in an ideology, they believe in an idea, right, and they will live and die for that idea.

00:16:09--> 00:16:49

They believe in this this vision. What did the Quran do? It didn't just give us a political vision, or it didn't give us an economic vision. It didn't give us a psychological vision. It gave us a spiritual vision about this world and the next, and give us the ultimate vision. And the word vision is important because it's coming in is number one, actually, you know, so the the idea of vision, these people who ignore the signs around them, are people with limited vision, the only thing they can see, the only thing they can be consumed by is themselves or their immediate surroundings. That's what makes them oblivious. Well, a human I attend for some Article of the Mona Lisa. Well,

00:16:50--> 00:17:33

this is a comment about who most people all right, fine. If that's most people, that means a very small minority of people will actually contemplate and find a lot. Right? The next day is about the minority. The people who find Allah, He says, Well, my, you know, accelo, humbler, he illa homebush, raccoon. And most people will not believe in Allah, except they will do share meaning partner of others with him at the same time. Oh my god, so the minority will believe in God the way they should. And even then most of them will end up doing what? Shake with it. Whoa. So most people won't even listen. And the ones that will listen will listen and mix in share quitter, belief. Yala. So

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

the minority of the minority now

00:17:36--> 00:17:49

if the population is dwindling, oh, now what is this comment about? Well, if it's about the people of Makkah, they believe in Allah. In fact, solanco booth will not insult a human halaqa sumati will

00:17:51--> 00:18:36

lunala if you were to ask them who created the skies in the earth, they will absolutely say a lie that God did. They believe in one God, but that God has daughters or that God has, you know, sub he has, he has given some powers to some other beings. They may not be gods, but he's passed off some responsibilities to them, or he's given them certain rights, or they have certain closeness to him. So we can go through them together, put in a good word to him. In other words, Schick isn't just believing in multiple Gods shift is also to believe in one Allah one God, but then say he has a son. Or then say he has daughters or then say he has other his there are saints that he must listen to,

00:18:37--> 00:19:09

then say that he has limits on him. In other words, you can believe in Allah is one God. And there are plenty of religions that believe in one God. But then when you dig deeper into who that God is and how he operates, then you find that that God has partners or limits or other things that are playing. That's where the ship comes in. Allies first, commenting from a theological point of view, you can think of it as most people, most religions who even have a faith in God, they associate something with it. Even though kurush most people so these people when you say believe in Allah, they say we already believe in Allah.

00:19:11--> 00:19:31

The word alone is not alien to the Arabs of Mecca, the Quraysh it was an alien to them, they thought they talked about law all the time. They swore by law all the time. They called him the creator of the skies in the earth, but along with Allah, other gods to other sub gods, others, you know, associates and partners.

00:19:32--> 00:19:57

And I'll, I'll come back to each of these. But first, I want you to understand its flow, right? So Allah is telling the prophets lie Selim, that they believe in a lot, and yet they still have these corrupted additions with it. But there's another dimension to this. And the other dimension to this is there's sometimes idols on the outside like statues, right, or idols that are considered theological like, you know, people worshipping Jesus, for example, right. Those are theological idols.

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

But then there are evil

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

In psychological idols, like a Terminator, aka Allahu How have you seen someone who takes their own emotions, their own empty feelings, their desires and turns them into their God?

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

Well, the law Allahu Allah. And Allah allows a person like that to be misguided, even though they have knowledge, either.

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

In other words, somebody anger could become their god too. Besides a lot. Somebody pride can become their god too. besides Allah.

00:20:29--> 00:21:08

All of us, this will be a lie at one point or another. khulumani Otto Hata, the Prophet says, I'm guaranteed this all children of Adam continuously make mistakes, repeatedly make mistakes. This isn't about making mistakes. This is about what led somebody to make mistakes, you could fall into mistakes, because you slipped. You fall into mistakes, because you forgot, you fell into a mistake because you felt you know, you were overwhelmed. You can fall into mistakes because you're imperfect. But when you fall into a mistake, because one, you continuously overlook the signs, you ignore them as if they're insignificant. And then you make whatever mistakes you make, because in

00:21:08--> 00:21:19

your mind, your anger or your lust or your greed or your whatever, justifies overriding what Allah says that you've set yourself up right next to Allah.

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

He's the ultimate authority. Well, not in this case. Now I am

00:21:25--> 00:21:33

is one thing to mess up and say I messed up. It's another thing to say I messed up and then say, ally understands, I get pretty angry.

00:21:34--> 00:22:12

Now, now you're imposing your will on Allah, you get it. So there are people who will believe in Allah. They'll believe in Allah, but they won't believe that Allah has the ultimate authority over what they do and how they feel. their feelings can dictate what they should do. And they those feelings, don't have to submit to Allah's word Rasulullah saw Salam says, Now you know how to come hatay akuna how to be Allah magic to be none of you really has faith until what their feelings are. They're empty whims, their impulses become under whatever I have brought.

00:22:14--> 00:22:50

come under it. So our feelings are acknowledged. And then after being acknowledged, our feelings are being told they have to come under the shade of Allah's word, they have to come underneath it. And it's okay. Sometimes our feelings, you know, they erupt, and we cross the line of Allah's word we're human, that's where the mistake comes from. Right. But if someone actually accepts that their feelings will decide. And they admittedly knowingly, deliberately, just ignore what Allah says, continuously, mortally wounded, I don't care. When they develop that then they are in a place of shift, even if there's no idol in front of them.

00:22:52--> 00:23:33

Doesn't matter if there's no idol in front of them. There's an idol inside now. There's an object of worship inside, there's an object of love and adoration inside. That's it, most people don't believe in a lie. And even while they believe in a lie, they come and check at the same time we allow machines, scary stuff, scary, scary stuff. And then when they do this kind of shift, they can only do so if they develop a very skewed view of what lies because you wouldn't defy a laws authority in that way. You wouldn't disregard a laws word in that way. Unless you had an alternative view of who a law really is. And in that alternative view, a lot. You're safe from him. Meaning you take a less

00:23:33--> 00:23:43

beautiful name, or Amanda loving and caring one I would do the excessively loving one, right? You take those names, and you hold on to them tight, and all the other names of Allah.

00:23:44--> 00:23:47

You don't have to worry about when you develop that.

00:23:48--> 00:23:55

That Allah is also the guide, that Allah is also the one watching. Done was also the one hearing.

00:23:56--> 00:24:09

Allah is also the one who's the authority. Allah is also the one to be relied on. Allah is also the one to be trusted. What does it mean to trust Allah? It means when a lead tells you something, trust me, that's trust a lot. That's what's best for you.

00:24:10--> 00:24:14

Legally, you have fever uncom Allah wants to make things lighter for you.

00:24:15--> 00:24:50

A lot is telling you that trust him. What does it mean to not trust what he says but say I love Allah loves me anyway. Yeah, sure. Allah loves you. That's true. Allah created me. Allah loves me a lot fills my lungs with oxygen every day. He allows me to inhale and exhale a lot lets me open my eyes and be able to see and gives my eyes function a lot. Lets my legs move a lot, puts clothes on my body a lot puts a roof over my head. All of this is true. And all of this is a manifestation proof of how much Allah loves me. Absolutely. But if I limit my view of Allah as just someone who loves me,

00:24:52--> 00:24:53

I'm going to run into a real problem.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

Because you know what's going to happen the next day is going to happen. I mean, to maharsha tominaga

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

are they feeling safe

00:25:03--> 00:25:10

and feeling safe? Then an overarching or hovering form of a punishment from a law is not going to come and get them?

00:25:11--> 00:25:37

are they feeling that say, well you know when that happens when you take some names of Allah, you give those to the other attributes, authority, trust, reliance, surrender, obedience, you give those to someone else or you give those to yourself. So the relationship with a lot for you and I becomes partial. When that becomes partial somewhere in our head. We think we're still okay because Allah loves us or we love Allah. We're feeling safe.

00:25:38--> 00:25:42

What shift does is it creates a false sense of security

00:25:43--> 00:25:55

that check the idol worship or believes that even if there is one God because I made this idol happy, this idol will put in a good request to God and God won't punish me even if God is mad. He'll get in the way.

00:25:56--> 00:26:10

The believe the Christian will believe that Jesus will get in the way even if I messed up. Oh, God will be punishing me Jesus. No, no, he's with me worship me. So he's good. Okay, you're my son. So therefore he gets he gets a pass, someone will get in the way.

00:26:11--> 00:26:18

And the psychological kind of Schick says, I will develop a skewed picture of a lot less love for me will get in the way.

00:26:19--> 00:26:28

Allah's mercy towards me will get in the way, a love will not ask me. A love will not hold me to account. No, no, no, you don't know a lot, a lot like I do.

00:26:29--> 00:27:03

This is a kind you know, there are two extremes. Allah is a Punisher. Allah is just a level get you, you better obey Him. And the other extreme is allies loving, Allah cares. allies, you know, he's so kind. And both of those are true. You can't if you just hold on to Allah is punishing Allah will get you Allah, you better obey him under every circumstance, that's impossible. Because you are going to make a mistake. You're human, you will make a mistake. If you just hold on to this, you know what's gonna happen, you're gonna lose love of Allah, because you'll only have fear of Allah.

00:27:05--> 00:27:09

And you lose hope. Because once you mess up, you're you're taken out of the equation.

00:27:11--> 00:27:54

On the flip side, you'll have false hope. You'll just have hope you have no sense of responsibility, or your sense of responsibility will start dwindling. And these are corruptions in our faith. And they happen when we ignore the chart. Let Allah Tell me who he is. That Allah tells me what the dynamics of my relationship with Him should be, let alone Tell me, how should I think about him? And what does he think of me? This is the kind of the step by step PCC. Let me walk you through that. Again, before we get into the details. The detail, the details are pretty interesting, actually. So one they ignore, they ignore signs all around them, they don't count, they don't want to think about

00:27:54--> 00:28:03

any of that they're too busy with themselves. Once they're busy with themselves, then they develop even if they do think about a lie, even if they have faith in the law. It's a version of faith that has some [???]can,

00:28:04--> 00:28:41

some kind of corruption in it, some kind of contamination in it, they've associated someone or something with a law that isn't accurate. That shouldn't be there. It's not a pure belief in Allah. And because it's not a pure belief in Allah, then I mean, went to home last year tominaga Bella, then they get no realization, they get a false sense of safety. 123. So this, this is the anatomy of corrupted faith, the anatomy of schicke, beautifully articulated inside these ions. But now let's go back and see what is the connection between this and the story of use of honey. So now,

00:28:42--> 00:28:55

you see this final passage is talking to those who have lost sight of them. But it's talking to him against the backdrop of this remarkable story. There are a few realizations I had today about this story. Pretty, pretty interesting.

00:28:57--> 00:29:18

You find the brothers of Yusuf Ali salam, if you look from the beginning, most people no matter how hard you try, aren't going to believe that they're not believing they're adamant about their disbelief. You could have said this, a lot could have said this. To jacoba A sambar. His sons, most of them just won't listen to you, no matter how hard you try.

00:29:19--> 00:29:57

Yeah, well, Mark, well, Mark, you know, Veronica Willow house, they'll be winning most of your sons, no matter how much you try, they just they're not going to believe what you're saying. They will eventually but at the moment, that's that's the reality. So the profit section of his hearing this, but he also recognizes that jacobellis must have felt this to this reality too. He says what matters aluna Lee human agile, you're not asking them for compensation. This was number 104. We already covered it. You're not asking them for compensation compensation. You're not asking for any material gain. You've never asked them for anything. In fact, the one time benefit was actually the brothers

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

abusive. They're the ones who came asking

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

The flip.

00:30:02--> 00:30:38

And whether they accept this faith or accept useful for not what use of was given was something much bigger than just as brothers. It was something that was for the benefit of the larger, largest, most powerful nation on Earth at the time that was going to benefit other nations also, in huella, Declan, I mean, in the profit now, this is if you think about these ions against the backdrop of the story of use of Elisa, Boca you mean I attend to some of what he will do Marina and they have, how many miraculous signs are they going to pass by in the skies in the earth? How many things the brothers of us have passed by

00:30:39--> 00:30:42

the, you know, their father being a prophet,

00:30:44--> 00:31:02

then the you know, the drought coming. Even the drought? You know, Allah says sometimes he puts people in difficulty that Allah rune so they can become humbled. They wouldn't get humbled. They wouldn't see the signs on the earth, the skies and the earth, the skies dried up, and the earth dried up as a result.

00:31:03--> 00:31:12

couldn't learn from it. Well, man, how are you doing completely oblivious, they went begging for food after being a spa, and they come back and they're still arrogant with their father.

00:31:14--> 00:31:23

And then learn Allah says how many people are like that. Then he says, Well, my grandma, you know, extra humbler? lahoma shikun. Most people don't believe in Allah accepted, we should get the same time.

00:31:24--> 00:32:03

These people, these brothers of Yusuf Alayhi, salam, they believed in a lot. But at the same time, they only follow their own arrogance. They put their arrogance above what Allah would want them to do. And even more interestingly, use of honey syrup is a very different story from all the stories of the prophets in the cloud, it just stands in its own place. Other Stories of profits, you find profits come deliver a message that gets rejected and those nations get destroyed. You don't have a destruction of a nation at the end of the story of use of even though you have a majority disbelieving nation, it's exceptional, isn't it is different? And what do you find you find the use

00:32:03--> 00:32:05

of holism very openly talking about his faith in prison

00:32:06--> 00:32:14

are multiple Gods veteran one. These are just names you've made up in here last mount somebody to Mohan tabaco, Manzil Allahu

00:32:16--> 00:32:56

Allah did not send any authority for you to make up these mythological names of multiple gods, this is all made up. That's what he straight up said in prison. And then when he comes into the position of authority, he mentions a lot publicly from the pulpit, from the state from the king's throne. He's mentioning Allah, and yet Egypt is not a Muslim nation. Egypt is majority You know, this the the pharaohs religion, the ancient and they have their priests and they have their cultures. And in fact, even when he came out of prison, remember, we talked about this, the king saw dream. And he went to ask his advisors what it means and those advisors go to, you know, their own, like those

00:32:56--> 00:32:58

those their priests from their temples.

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

And they, you know, they have their incense, and they have all kinds of like, you know, Hocus Pocus that they do in this yard means this or that or the other. That's what they do. And here you have Yusuf Ali Salaam, telling him what the dream means and use of it sometimes it comes from Allah, the the king believes and all that other mystical, mythological nonsense, Hocus Pocus. And he also believes in what user is telling him. And what user is telling him sounds pretty good. Hey, your ally did pretty good. I'm gonna go with that. You see what I just did there? So I'll accept your God. That's pretty good. That sounds like the right interpretation. He's on point. His his allies.

00:33:39--> 00:33:43

Solid is true. But that doesn't mean he left the other religion is it?

00:33:44--> 00:33:54

So he's okay with Allah. And he's still okay with the pagan religions. What is the lesson here? And most people won't believe in a lot except they'll do [???] katha same time.

00:33:55--> 00:33:57

Isn't that what the Egyptian people did?

00:33:58--> 00:34:07

Of course, they believe in Allah because they believed in what you saw was telling them and Yusuf was openly saying this is from what my master taught me openly saying it.

00:34:08--> 00:34:21

And so now, what do we learn from that? There's a subtle commentary in the Quran here about Muslims living in a larger society that has different religions.

00:34:22--> 00:34:59

And when Muslims even share their faith, the beauty of their faith can become obvious to those who don't believe in Islam. A Hindu can find Islam impressive. A Buddhist can find principles of Islam impressive. A Christian can say Hey, can I come to your mosque and pray with you? A Jew can come an agnostic come they can find calm in the experience they can. And at the same time, they'll still hold on to all of their beliefs. I really like what you guys do. I want to come again, it's really spiritual. But you know, Jesus is pretty awesome too. Or this is you know, my temple. Sometimes they say

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

Pretty good things to, they want to hold on to all they want everything on their plate.

00:35:04--> 00:35:46

Unless as most people and this particularly in the context of, of use of holiday Sam, this was the case right now let me tell you, when you have a civilization that has multiple religions, then politicians, one of the one of the goals of politicians is to dilute each religion. So they start feeling like they are mixed in with each other. There are two things politicians can do. One, they can turn religions against each other. Right? This one versus that one, this one hates the, they're not truly Nash, they're not truly patriotic because they're from religion, x. And you're the true members of this religion because you're or this nation because you are religion, why? So religion

00:35:46--> 00:35:53

can become equivalent to patriotism, right? So your religion is subject to how truly whatever you are, right?

00:35:56--> 00:36:34

On the other side, you might find that religion, they say that religion needs to get diluted, we need to take all these different religions and make them focus on, you know, joint activities and joint ventures so we can increase our voter bloc. So we're just make them feel like we're all just one big happy family. You know, we're gonna we're gonna do Ramadan with you guys. And then you'll do something, you know, in our church next week. And then we'll go to the temple and do something a prayer together over there, because we're all one big happy family. Let's assimilate and synchronize these religions together so that we can make Coalition's between them. Meaning the larger purpose is

00:36:34--> 00:36:54

political or social or economic. Religion isn't the top. The revolution isn't the top. The revelation is just there to identify a certain congregation, and how we can get those numbers to join in our coalition. This is political, but that's all it becomes. That is, again an incredible form of shake.

00:36:55--> 00:37:29

Most people won't believe in a lie, except that they will also do [???] and people that are in a minority position, anywhere in the world, any Muslims that are in a minority position, in order to fit in, they might allow for some association to their religion to happen. And that's a warning from Allah azza wa jal, Yusuf alayhi salam, even in a position of authority. You see the I contrast this with what happened with the sorcerers of Egypt in the time of Moosa. When they came and made public statements, they first declared the glory of the pharaoh via a certificate out in Hollywood.

00:37:30--> 00:37:40

And Yusuf Ali Salam is sitting on the pharaoh throne. He's sitting on the on the king's throne, and yet he will not declare the glory of the king if he glorifies either he honors his parents.

00:37:41--> 00:37:43

Or he says called kajabi haka.

00:37:45--> 00:38:05

Allah made my dream by Rob made my dream true. Here may be mentioned the lasagna, he doesn't mix. Well, my you know, acceleron Villa de la machico. Now, finally, amino and Tatiana guasha tominaga Bella, isn't it true that the brothers felt safe that those cut the consequences of their actions will never come and hit them?

00:38:06--> 00:38:30

It just it won't happen. It was impossible in their minds and came to them out of nowhere. So there's this subtle undertone in these IOD that kind of echoes what happened in the story of use of Felisa. But now let's turn to the profit slice, because these are actually directly indirectly picking up from themes from use of but directly speaking total sola, sola hodja, Sonam

00:38:31--> 00:39:10

rasulillah salam has two audiences. I said this in the beginning, the immediate audience is the koresh. And the not so immediate audience that is lurking in the background is actually the Israelites. And he's going to be more directly engaged with them when he moves to Medina, right, the Jewish people. This story clearly resonates with the Jewish people because it's the Jewish story. It's the ultimate Jewish story. It's the story of Israel himself and his sons. So clearly, the ears are perked up, like what do you say? What? So they are now part of the audience, because they are part of the audience and the incredible parallel is being made.

00:39:11--> 00:39:12

I want you to think of it this way.

00:39:14--> 00:39:19

Yusuf Alayhi Salam and his brother are not loved because they come from a different mother

00:39:21--> 00:39:28

Rasulullah salam, and his father is my eel are not loved because they come from a different

00:39:29--> 00:39:59

a different mother. Okay, Ibraheem alehissalaam has children. He has his hug and a smile. His heart comes from a certain mother. His smile comes from a different mother. Why did the Israelites have a problem with a smile and therefore our society Hello, because he's coming from a different mother. Why did they have a problem with Yusuf Ali Salaam, because he came from a different mother, they're repeating their own mistake with us who lost them. Where's the jealousy coming from? Why would they want him in a well why would they want him destroyed? Why would they do

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

eject him because of the same thing they did the And who are they? They are those brothers of us so for the sons of Israel, right they're literally the sons of Israel and the Jews of Medina are what? The sons of Israel

00:40:14--> 00:40:54

there's no a super imposition of the brothers of use of and the Israelites in Medina, the Jews of Medina. And with that in mind, how many times did they have an opportunity to correct course they're living with a prophet For God's sake. And they wouldn't listen to their own father, who's a prophet, calling him last. And what did Allah say about the Israelite people, you killed your own profits? You denied your own profits. You even heard Musa alayhis salam to the point where he would say Lima to me Why are you hurting me? Now? What does Allah say? Go back to iron number 105 Okay, a human is in for some it will or do morona Allah how many miraculous sign in the skies in the earth do they

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

pass by

00:40:56--> 00:41:15

how many signs did the Israelites see from the sky? Well, they're not la cama cama de la la, la sala. How many they pass by that they completely ignore. So this becomes a commentary not just on the kurush not just on the historical brothers of use of but also now on the Jews of Medina.

00:41:16--> 00:41:52

They are rejecting Quran but they've been rejecting the Ayat of Allah coming especially to them like no one else for a long time. And there's a list of them that's about to come that the Prophet doesn't even know about yet. That's gonna come in total Bukhara, all the signs that they were given. You know, for us, what are the signs of the skies in the earth, the sign the signs in the skies in the earth, for us are the clouds, the rain, you know, in mamarazzi, list, thunder, lightning, the human body animals, that's the signs in the skies in the earth. For the Israelites, the size and the signs in the skies in the earth, or wells springing open by the strike of a staff, or clouds

00:41:52--> 00:42:00

following them. We're Monday in Salva, where the dead coming back to life that was the IRS somehow it will have the lunar module

00:42:01--> 00:42:08

and then Allah says well now you know Xl hoobler lahoma shikun and most of them don't believe in Allah accepted to shake at the same time. When

00:42:09--> 00:42:22

I say about them, it how do you know about Ahmedabad, Ababa, mundo de la habana Ababa medulla, they took their their monks and their scholars as Gods besides Allah.

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

Why? Because those day decided what's allowed and what's around the Prophet explained. So I saw them right. So when my you know external humbler Loma shikun, even if they believe in Allah, if they don't accept what he says is how God has held on if they don't live by what he says How long has held on then how are they not doing [???]?

00:42:41--> 00:43:14

Then they can believe in the oneness of a God, but that God has no authority, we can override it with our interpretation. We can override what he says that's not your that's not your kidney authority of Allah. That's the shift in the mind of Allah in the in the mastery of Allah over his slaves, and then what happened with the Israelites in total Baqarah the prophets I some doesn't even know this yet. Like the deceit of these artists coming in later revelation we have the advantage of knowing that what is coming, the Israelites believed even though we've messed up they felt safe.

00:43:16--> 00:43:19

They said no lentil masala narrow Allah mama Duda

00:43:20--> 00:43:35

is not going to touch us except for a few days. It's not really going to touch us. We are the chosen, we are deceived. Everybody else is in trouble. We're not you know, we there's no way we can be overcome.

00:43:36--> 00:43:37

No spa

00:43:38--> 00:44:06

Nosema Aminu and Theo Shia tominaga villa. are they feeling safe, that an over arching or hovering punished, a hovering form of the punishment of Allah harsh it would mean as a Bella from out of the punishments of Allah something that overwhelms as arshia something that covers up they feeling safe from that that actually the first a worldly punishment. So the Jews of Medina are already being told, are you feeling safe that you're not going to be overrun

00:44:07--> 00:44:34

as a form of punishment from Allah? What happened at Hayward? What happened in mono karela? The word was there not Akasha from Allah, that overarched above them. Was it not the result of their scheming against us or law, like the brothers of use of schemed against use of La Silla? Was it not the result of them, you know, claiming to believe in Allah and doing shake with him at the same time, Nuba Mountains, Elena will not be Mara.

00:44:35--> 00:44:59

Was it not the result these IOD fit like a glove on the Israelites that are that are about to be directly encountering the Prophet solution. And he's about to directly be encountering them. And he says to homosassa to both the time or the hour itself will come at them all of a sudden, hour itself. Why? Because they know that the ultimate sign of the of the final day of Judgment Day is the coming of the last prophets of Allah wherever you set up.

00:45:01--> 00:45:44

And are Sokka hurting me and the final hour are like these two fingers. The profit slice of them says, He says, are they? Are they feeling safe that no overarching punishment will come at them now, or even the hour might strike immediately without them realizing well home life showed, and they have no knowledge whatsoever. And what an interesting Echo, because when they were putting use offender well, Allah said you will be telling them what they did, or Himalaya showed they have no knowledge, they have no clue. They have no realization. And here foreshadowing for what's coming. While home Leia Sharon, it's an incredible set of art. It's an absolutely incredible. So there's a

00:45:44--> 00:46:23

there's a there's a kind of a commentary, a subtle commentary, picking up from the themes of the story of Youssef on Instagram, there's a commentary on the state of the operation, what the prophet has to deal with. And there's a commentary on the Israelites that the Prophet is about to deal with. And I'm tying the story of use of to their state. So it's not just Oh, they may have asked, Well, if he's a prophet, then he should know Joseph was in the history. Allah didn't just say history, unless had through that history, I will comment on your current state of affairs. I will make that history live and show you how you are on the wrong side of history. You are on the other side of history and

00:46:23--> 00:46:42

you have a choice to come come to terms you have a choice to come clean. So this is the the kind of the superimposition of all these stories together. One final comment about this. You know, the the I tried thinking a lot about the the stories in the Quran

00:46:43--> 00:47:16

and how they correlate with the struggles of the Prophet sallallahu nonius in them. And in the in the Macan Quran. It's very easy to see how the story of new and slowly and surely been who the repeated stories and even of mythologies are repeated because the prophets I shalom is facing a disbelieving nation. And it's just it's the stage of Dawa. And these prophets, they get engaged in Dawa, to those disbelieving people, right? So parallel is being made between those disbelievers and operation.

00:47:18--> 00:47:44

Yusuf Ali Salaam story. It's kind of different. Because unlike, you know, Suleiman Ali Salaam, who is going to actually take over an empire that doesn't believe in Allah, Queen Shiva, right? Unlike masala Salaam, who's going to challenge the very existence of the Egyptian Empire, Yusuf Ali Salaam is in a position of Kingdom. And yet the vast majority of people do not believe.

00:47:45--> 00:48:12

And he's not imposing the religion on them. The religion actually survives long after him too. It seems a law's plan for Yusuf Ali Salaam, was to start what you can call soft Allah and establish the Muslims in that land and continue to preach the message until Allah decides that they must be given the message very directly with a warning and that will culminate and mature in the form of Masada Salaam.

00:48:13--> 00:48:59

Right. So in a way, what starts with Yusuf Ali salam, and ends all the way with the legacy of Masada. saddam, is actually in that several generations, right. And all of that was then relived in the Prophet's life Salallahu alaihe salam, but in one lifetime and two decades, so that entire legacy from Yousuf to musante salam is crunched together, elements of it, inside the life of the prophets lysozyme with differences now, the commonalities are easy to understand, but there are differences, what are the differences? The differences are, there was never from the very beginning. Unlike use of Elisa, there was never a time where olara was allowed, that the prophets I said I'm

00:48:59--> 00:49:02

will not be offensive to Sheikh

00:49:03--> 00:49:21

Yusuf Alayhi Salam is speaking about the true religion, and he's speaking without about it without hesitation, but their religious practices continue. Their shift continues. The differences are associated with centers the custodian of the house of the heat built by Ibrahima Lisa,

00:49:22--> 00:49:34

he will not allow other religions to exist in this region. He will come out and say the most offensive thing he won't just say, Allahu Allahu Allah r1 Allah is the Greatest God.

00:49:36--> 00:49:39

Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah is the god

00:49:40--> 00:49:42

you know, that's not enough.

00:49:43--> 00:49:56

Allahu Ahad Allah is one No, no one can be an Allah in any way, shape or form except Allah, that straight up of it now all your religions are invalidated.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

Now that's a declaration of war.

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

That's an ideological war from day one from day one.

00:50:06--> 00:50:12

Notice the change in language there is a theory in the language of use of he says, are multiple Gods better or one?

00:50:13--> 00:50:26

That's the language you use of Barbuda for rakatan hyaluron, Milan waha. And he also said these are names you've made up. He also said this, these are mythologies. Yeah, they're mythologies, but they still exist.

00:50:27--> 00:51:02

asylum is the final man Allah knew that these mythologies are there and he could have commanded use of Elisa Lam to say you better believe or I will destroy this nation. But Allah decided to separate this portion of the hour the soft start and go all out with the coming of Messiah a Salaam and really go at them. But all of this is actually in one can one continuous narrative and the seal of the prophets I said I'm inside maka is there's no break in between, let them deal with it a couple of generations, and then we'll come back at them again. No, directly,

00:51:03--> 00:51:26

immediately. It's it's an incredible, incredible parallel, and a contrast with those two legacies and the legacy of those who lost the love race. And so we've reached somewhat iron number 107 I think I may have some more things to share with you about 107 tomorrow and we'll continue I think 108 should get time on its own though, because it's one of those places in the Quran. That's just

00:51:27--> 00:51:37

it's it should it deserves super duper amounts of attention. Particularly Welcome to call Hakeem when a fan er can be it with the cinematic camera.
