Channel: Nouman Ali Khan
Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into an in-depth analysis of Ayah 114-115 of Surat Al-Baqarah.
One should keep in mind three different incidents connected with the three groups, all of which were in one way or another guilty of preventing people from worshiping Allah SWT. What were they? The Ustadh elaborates for a sound understanding.
Through this Ayah number 114, Allah SWT lays down a permanent law for all people. It is not permissible to desecrate mosques and hinder people from the remembrance of Allah SWT. Whoever does this is unjust and cruel and he will be laced with humiliation in this world and dire punishment in the next. It is from the etiquette of mosques that one should enter them with humility and respect, fearing Allah SWT or being conscious of Allah SWT in one’s heart.
The idolaters compelled the Prophet ﷺ and his Companions RA to migrate from Makkah to Madinah, thus separating them from the Ka’bah. Ayah 115 is a befitting answer to the objections of the Jews and also brings comfort to the Prophet ﷺ and his Companions RA. Allah SWT cannot be limited to one fixed direction. He is everywhere and surrounds everything. What really matters is obeying the commands of Allah SWT. In order to win His pleasure, one has to orient oneself according to what He Himself has determined.

man I'm sad don't lie he got off he has moved on wasafi hora de la Kanaka Anna la home the Hulu
in Lahore in the home feed dounia his
karate either will not be rubbish it suddenly were silly. Everyone looked at me listening of cocoa leaf and hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah.
Once again, everybody so
what I'd like to first do in this session is translate this ayah and then inshallah go piece by piece. It's a long ayah and seems like a departure from the original subject, but it's really not woman of London. remember Allah subhanaw taala, who could be more of a wrongdoer than someone who prevents the houses of Allah. And you've got off, he has know that his name be mentioned in them. That's one way of translating it. We'll go through multiple translations when we get to the linguistics of it. But for now, this is the one we'll stick with who could be more of a wrongdoer. And someone who prevents the houses of Allah from having his name being pronounced in them. wasafi
Harada and makes efforts in corrupting them makes efforts towards corrupting them or to dismantling them carabas the opposite of Mr. And Mr. Mr. Yamamoto is to build something or to develop something or to further something, and hobbies actually to deteriorate something or to dismantle something to deconstruct something, so works towards deconstructing them dilapidating them etc. Will it come back and Allahu Allah hifi those people meaning whoever does this, those a bunch of people, it is not right for them to enter those massage those homes of Allah, except in states of fear, the home for dunya has gone they will have, especially in this life, humiliation will at home feel sad.
And those people as when it comes to the afterlife, on top of that, over and above that will have great punishment. That's the rough meaning of the iron, you can tell that the ayah is about people who stop others from the massage of Allah. This seems to be a departure especially because the previous conversation, as you can tell was about Jews and Christians, how exclusively they think of themselves and how they even have infighting when they come against you. They say that you have no basis. Nobody's going to happen except our people. And then internally, they have their own arguments. You have no basis, you have no basis. You're no different than the Michigan of Arabia,
that this is the conversations that are happening. Some of them I have looked at this and said, speaking of the mushy cone, how horrible are they because they stopped people from the Kaaba. They stopped the Muslims from the Kaaba. So that's one kind of continuation of the text right so canonica Karla, leadin Allah Allah Mona methacholine those just like those who have no knowledge of spoken speaking of those that have no knowledge look at how what a crime they've committed, but I feel that there's a deeper connection here especially because
the word massage it is used now what is massage parola mustard and if this conversation is only about karma, then Mashallah.
But Allah said massage Allah. And notice also in other places in the Quran, Allah says, you know the beauty of in Allah they're called boo tala Baitullah but now Allah calls it massages Allah
massage it comes from what verb sajida and says that was just mentioned by Llama Llama wahoo Lila, the one who submitted his face before Allah, submitting his face submitting one's face literally means what satisfy itself. Now unless calling him the massage, no other places in Quran like SoTL hedge. Allah talks about monasteries and you know, synagogues and churches Salama and like other homes of Allah. Here Lessing massage Allah. What's the difference? Are all the houses of worship massage de la or not? The thing is, in Islam, when Allah gave Islam to any messenger in any messenger built any house of worship, they were all supposed to be what were they supposed to be
churches? Were they supposed to be synagogues or were they were supposed to be massage it? Were all massages. They were all massage. They were all places where studies that should be done. That such that is actually the legacy of our father Ibrahim alayhis salam when he was building the Kaaba even said you know, what Allah told him by him I btle even when I can feel maruka sujood that was the fundamental like right of the house of a law that says that should be done there. Okay.
Similarly, you find that in across the discussion about Islam
The houses of Allah, the original name of them. And the fundamental purpose for which we go there is to do such that's important, because humanity will be known by its size that you know how the places you do studies that are going to testify for you. You ever think about why that is? The reason that says that is so important is because this is what makes us different from Emily's.
Here are a few signs that
we fall into such that we humble ourselves, we have no pride before Allah, we completely give ourselves up. We don't argue before Allah. This is the pride of the Muslim besides that, and the houses that were built so that that humility could be restored. And refreshed and rejuvenated, are the massages. So now, this ayah is actually about what should have been every house of Allah.
Let's go back to what this is about, in the immediate context, and includes the machico of Makkah, because they prevented access for the Muslims to what the Kaaba, they prevented, look, read the eye again, who could be more of a wrongdoer than someone who president prevented from the houses of Allah that then that his name should be mentioned in them. Obviously, it includes the machinery, but obviously, it is also not limited to them.
It also includes actually some other groups now some said, Well, maybe this includes the Romans and the Assyrians, because when they conquered Jerusalem, they exile the Jews, and they didn't let anybody come in. And nobody could pray there and the inaka maybe that's what it's a reference to. The problem with that is all this time, who is a lot criticizing, and these I was he criticizing the Roman Empire, and then Syrians, the Babylonians whose he was he criticizing, he's criticizing the Jews and the Christians. And he's saying you're not that different from who was rakuen. So there's three groups now that are being criticized the Jewish, the corruption of the Jewish element, the
corruption of the Christian element, and the Anima shikun. Those are the three groups that are criticized, it doesn't make sense to me that in the middle of that conversation, the lessons By the way, I know you guys have had a hard time because of the Romans and the Assyrians, they were pretty messed up to, that seems to be a departure from the subject matter. This, Allahu taala on them is actually a continuation of the same subject matter, there are two kinds of corrupting the house of Allah lysing the machine, he could have corrupted it by putting items, the machine would have corrupted by not letting Muslims go and pray there. That's how they corrupted it. And they prevented
that dimension of the name of Allah. But the Jews, especially the criticism is first and foremost of the Jews, because that's the main conversation here. What did they do with the houses of Allah, they turned them into a place for politics and control, they turned it into a place for egos to be furthered. And for, you know, one group to refute against another and prevent them they cannot pray here, they're not the same faction as we are. They don't belong to the same method that we do. They can pray here, they would fight each other and kill each other and not allow each other in the houses of Allah, the houses of Allah were no longer a place where allies mentioned, the houses of
love became a place where their their agendas were mentioned, their groups were furthered.
So there are two kinds of crimes against the machine. One crime is the kind of crime that machinery couldn't have done, you know, like they prevented prayer from happening in the machine. This is the kind of crime you'll feel when you go to Granada one day, and you see the machine turned into a museum and people taking pictures of it out of the Quran on the walls, and you can get get arrested for praying to the crowd there
that you'll remember the crime of the Muslim Koon. That's one kind of crime. That ain't the only kind of crime.
That's the physical crime. Because there's a spirit there's the the building of the machine, there's a spirit of the machine. The crime of the Jews and Christians was against the spirit of the machine when that institution became a political institution, an institution that furthered other than last name. As a matter of fact, if somebody came along and just talked about a last name, it would expose what they're doing, so they wouldn't let it happen.
They kept it from happening. Of course, I'm saying all of this about the Jews and Christians that could never happen to the Muslims and our massage. This is impossible. So I can't I couldn't even imagine that this would ever, you know, who could be more of a wrongdoer? That someone who presents alone keeps Allah's name from being mentioned in his homes, in his homes that he mentioned. So hon Allah
I massages became a place where so much as mentioned,
so much is talked about Quran isn't
so much just talks about.
Everything about Quran is there
and you try to bring it and see what happens in some places, then you see what Allah is commenting on here. These you know what the Prophet told us, let that be unnatural and under the name and calmly comb, you will absolutely go down the road of the legacies of those who came much before you.
You will do what they did. That's what they did with their synagogues. That's what they did with their massage. You know, and and what would that the places where you were sitting
To be humble only to Allah,
I went to a machine in a place that shall not be named.
And really happy to find a machine walk into the giant sign at the board the front. And actually before you walk into the machine, there were names of certain people. I didn't know who these people were, but I just knew that their names of these people and these are supposed to be people that have that are there in a sense saints, okay, that only alveoli according to them. It can be only of Allah, why are their names and a machine?
This is the place where you call no one but Allah unelma Salida de la Plata de Roma Allah he hadn't masajid belong to Allah. Don't call anyone other than a live there and let him say don't worship anyone else. We're not talking about worshiping anyone else. Allah says don't even call anybody else there.
Don't call anybody else there. Even when you're sending solo aka Panos hula, so you're actually calling Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Mohammed,
you calling upon Allah, when massagin become a place where other things are celebrated and called upon him, you know, and we did this in America. We're not even I mean, I will tell you some disgusting things that I find disgusting. I think they're disgusting. That's the that's the house of worship of Allah. election season comes we want some politician to address the Muslim community. And we'll get to Paul, we're like that some holy person has walked in, and they come up to the member and they stand in the member and they address the Muslim community by its election season. I'd really like to say hello to the Muslim community as a camalexin Hamas tamasak that's how they say
Salaam Alaikum. And we're like,
why Nicolas Hara?
You know, politics is politics.
Keep it out of Allah's house.
This is why is this here? Why is this here? You know, this is a place a lot of the Roma Allah He had a bring up community concerns have have good relations with people don't miss much, it was a place where all kinds of community activities happened. They did. But nobody other than a lie has ever been glorified.
Don't glorify anybody else. Don't make a big deal out of anybody else. The only big deal I should be made is from. And then he says wasafi hobby Ha. And as a result, when you don't make the effort, or you prevent from Allah, his name being mentioned. And as a result, you are making efforts to corrupt the
If the machine is in a place that makes you want to fall into such that over and over and over again, that's not the place where the spirit of the Muslim is revived, again and again and again.
Then all you're working towards is to ruin it. You can tear down the walls of a machine, that's one kind of destroying a machine, you can rip the spirit those who have a much to depart. That's also a destruction of the machine. Who could be more wrong than that? Who could be more corrupt than that? When the Muslim school surrounded the Kaaba with idols, they kept people from learning what the Kaaba was really about.
The Kaaba was the house built by Rahim, for the worship of one God, they kept people from learning what it was really about. They stopped people's access to a lot when they corrupted that machine. When when the Jews corrupted their synagogue their masajid, and they turned them into political places, when Muslims will do anything of the sort. And they prevent any in any way shape or form anybody from remembering Allah in His houses, then we are turning we are that we are not the place that brings people close to Allah. We are the reason people go far from Allah.
For pushing people away.
That's scary. Because Allah says, Oh, can be worse than that.
what happened in our machine one time, that shall not be named.
Somebody was Ramadan. And we're in Malawi. And this guy walks into the machine drunk.
I mean, the runk
couldn't even stand straight.
And he just, he just stood in prayer.
Fell into such that couldn't even get up.
That's the state he's in. Guess what happened once I was done.
We kicked him out.
We kicked him out.
That guy could have been at that guy should have been at a bar.
He left the bar. He left a bottle. He came where
he came to the machine.
He came in put his head on the ground before Allah.
And we did what we did.
We took him away from his house that's not for you.
I think I have that memory and I just think to myself, like
Woman, a woman who could be more of a wrongdoer.
I was at a this is true story I was in another place that shall not it This was a by the way this joy here in America. This is in America don't don't talk about the Muslim world. This happened right here, Mashallah the sophisticated educated Muslim community.
I was on a machine.
And this fellow, you know, he was he's Buddhist,
born raised his co workers Muslim, called him to the machine. So he comes
and he walks in and he tells his friend, where's the statue?
So we don't have a statue.
So why not? Because Because our God is greater than any statue.
We can't be reduced to us.
And he before jumaan
Guess what happens next?
You got kicked out?
How La La quwata illa Billah. This a shirt. This is the house of Allah. We don't call anyone.
This is what we've done. an arm massage.
machine is supposed to be a place that people find a lot.
Much there's no place.
I'll tell you one more good old USA story. I'm sure people have stories from all over the world about massage. And when it comes to this, it just hurts. It just hurts.
It was a girl I met in
a state that shall not be named. Well, she went to a machine in a state that shall not be named, but she's from Alabama.
And she's in a town where there's like no Muslims. She's a preacher's daughter.
sees the Kaaba and her grade
doesn't know what it is. Starts googling it. Cube church
doesn't know what it is finally stumbles upon you know cube worship cube like finds the car online through it finds Islam
through starts learning online learns to pray hides it from her dad. Dad is the preacher in the town
she then Google's Islamic church
finds a machine 120 miles away in another state drives over there walks in bunch of brothers are having a hell of a start for a law lady there's no place for women here and you're not dressed according to Islam get out
and then goes online to talk to other preachers about this is what I've seen and they tell her see we told you this is the religion of the Devil You Know that how can people of God treat others that way that she's like yeah you're right you're right I
want nothing to do with it sees the Goblin in her dream again and again and again.
Can't even help it then she reached out to share home or something
you know and he said Don't go Don't go to the machine I'll see what my wife had a cafeteria
don't go to the machine you know those words when I talked to her about this
like you know how painful it is to say to somebody do anything you want just don't go to the machine
that's the worst state to be in like what crisis of the OH MY that I can talk about that's political economic social. When the biggest crisis of the humans the machine.
The House of Allah woman of the movie man mana masala and you've come coffee has more. Asahi calavia, it just burns. I met her she took Shahada with me Actually, she attended to divine speech in New Orleans. And then she took Shahada that day, Alma she told me her story and I just
I don't know what to do with that.
I don't know what to do with it.
To laugh or to cry.
And then I was so moved by what happened the next week I'm happened to be in another American city. We have called about it but we have to be accepting of people and bring them to a lot and our massage. And then I went to that same machine at a shop and the shear gave a lecture against my Hooda and said how we have to do our bit marital Fernanda Mancha we have to stay stand by what's right, and, you know, forbid was evil, and the machine has its rights under the law and the whole like,
okay, that's awesome. That is just awesome.
the other crime that should be mentioned here that's happening in the Omar today. Nobody should be prevented from the house of Allah. Nobody should be prevented from the house of Allah.
And today, Muslim women in much majority massages of the world. majority of Muslims in Southeast Asia and the majority massage in that part of the world. Don't allow women
they don't allow
that is a crime against women.
Forget about a crime against women. That's a crime against the law. Who said women aren't allowed to eat.
When, when our when our mother, when when my mother, my, my sister, my daughter are traveling in Pakistan or Bangladesh or somewhere and it's motive time and they can hear the Adhan, but they have to pray in the street.
It can't go into a machine, the men can go, they can go, what's the lie is not felt abandoned.
It's okay for them to pray it in the car. Like you know, if in sort of health
in the land of the Muslims, this is not a crisis.
This is caught up Salafi karabi.
Allah says Allah insha, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, hi fi, it has been interpreted, those people that have corrupted the houses of Allah don't deserve to come into the machine except in a state of fear. I argue that this is actually in the model the the Canada is not just for rhetorical reasons, for muddy reasons suggesting those people should have come into the machines fearing Allah alone all along, they should have feared a lot when they came into the machine. In other words, those people that are custodians of a machine should have clearly don't have fear of Allah when they do this kind of corruption.
They should have come into this machine with fear.
And since they don't loan for dunia has done well.
They will have humiliation in this life. And they will have great punishment in the next life. And in the other sense it applies to the machine akun one day will come they will be the ones that right now the most the believers are the ones who are afraid to go into the Kaaba, and they will come with they'll be afraid to want to enter it. That's the other kind of secondary implication.
Not only actually he they say some say that, you know, Anjelica raffia Woohoo, this is technical grammar, but I'll simplify it that the ayah when it says, you know unused Gaddafi has more could be considered what's what's called an Arabic. Not really actually here. Here's what that means. That means they stay prevent people from the you know, who could be worse than somebody who prevents from Allah as mustards. Because they're afraid that Allah will be mentioned.
Like, that's the problem for them.
The reason they don't want people to come in is because then things will be restored towards they, their control will be gone, their monopoly will be gone. Their territorial stick to the religion will be gone, because people will actually know what a lion is messenger up to say slice of them. The other say this is could be HTML, anybody steam admin masajid. Here's how that works. Woman woman, Allah more men, men, men and youth karate has more. Because it's a replacement of machines. And it includes machine who can be you know, worse criminal than somebody who prevents from the houses or the massage of Allah, the places where Allah should be submitted to. That is to say, the
places where Allah His name should be mentioned.
In other words, the definition of machine is what a place where allies mentioned.
That's the definition of machine where alleged talked about what Allah has remembered. That is, by definition,
they wouldn't want that to happen. Well, Motorola, Sony, isn't mocha, Mr. Botha, I will not will they preventing? Like, you know, the verb prevent prevention can has two objects. In other words, I prevented you from studying, there's two things you and studying. I can't just say I prevented from studying.
The question is, who did you prevent? If I just say I prevented you? Well, that still is incomplete. Because what did I prevent you from eating? Sleeping? study? What did I prevent you from? So when you say the word prevent, it needs to details and these tumor folds to make sense, only one of them is mentioned?
What's mentioned, the one who prevents the houses of Allah, that his name be mentioned, prevents who prevents what Allah didn't mentioned? Why? Because sometimes they prevent people,
certain kinds of people. Other times they prevent a bad day itself. They prevent the worship, they prevent teaching, sometimes, they prevent Dawa, sometimes they prevent even building it sometimes
building it, opening it, you know. So it could be any one of those meaning the prevention takes many forms. That's the genius of the IRA, is that you don't have to literally stop people from stopping the work of Dean. You can stop access, you can you can reroute funds. You can say no, no, no, all the money we raised in the fundraiser when we said the generation of this machine will take care of the youth. And we're going to take care of our community. And we're going to spread our Yeah, I know, we're gonna spread that well with the new chandelier.
Because that's what you know, that's what we're going to use it on.
Or, you know, one of the board members said that the carpet is too rough on my forehead. So we're getting new carpet for this place. But you promised that there's going to be plenty spent on the youth committee and women's education and the seniors and the, you know, outreach and Darwin No, no, yeah, but until we have carpet
That's not that's less than because you know, people gave us money for carpet.
This is what we do. That's also minor. It's not direct, it's just pushing the funds in the wrong direction, pushing the funds in irresponsible direction. This is called a bubble machine. And by the way, Herb in Arabic is one of the implications of carabas. You know, highly.
They try to make the machines empty.
They make efforts to make the massages empty.
In other words, there's policies in place and regulations in place, people coming in, you know, how many how many times have I met young imams young, brilliant, enthusiastic,
charismatic imams who want to do like 20 different things for their community, and they're stopped by their community. No, no, we don't want that. No.
We just need you for the fundraiser.
And make sure your football is about spending in the Battle of law. And make sure after that you make dua for the expansion project.
The expansion that will have nobody in it, because we don't let you do programs
that you've been asking for.
We built the gym, but there's insurance liabilities, we can't have us here late at night. No, no, no, shut it down, who's gonna pay the electricity bill?
that you see in our community is incredible. And I'm not pointing fingers at any one machine. There's a collective problem. There's a collective problem.
Lauren, we're way better off than much of what's happening in the Muslim world, well, we're not that much better off, we've got problems. In the minute I massage it a lot and youth got off, he has a scary thing, then let's look at that for a second. A little more later. been rated with a sort of cold by definition means to wrong somebody. Meaning who could be more of a wrongdoer. It is digging into the meaning of wrongdoing,
to crunch across the line against somebody else's rights by doing something we might not be, which which isn't agreed upon, when you look over whether a shape fee lady might use to help and you will not be one sided. And it also means putting something where it doesn't belong.
Placing something placing emphasis where it doesn't belong, placing priorities where it doesn't belong, placing money where it doesn't belong.
In the forum authority where it doesn't belong, that's also one. And he says both of those meanings apply here. Lucy says we're in American, nasty and the home Toby Waldman, aji, bacala muslimeen Mina, Michelle Heron, Bahama Hakuna and Fusarium de su asuma been an omen. Both meanings apply, because they prevented Muslims from praying there.
And they gave themselves a horrible reputation among the people they wronged themselves, because they didn't fulfill the rights of that house. But yeah.
Then wasafi karabi how there's commentary on they make efforts to disrupt and destroy it to dilapidated a high dama dama Matatini how hatami habit artania to really just rip it apart, well, in order to see the malata have been a positive here. So
he says the great destruction of a machine is when a bada is done in it when the massages are empty that is the actual destruction of the machine
when the machine is empty that is that the fact that the machine has been destroyed.
And there is of course conversation in our discourse about whether or not non Muslims can enter the carbine. Mama Lucy, by the way, by the end of it just clearly illustrates that they can they can absolutely enter or another couple of messages online they can there's no restriction on non Muslims entering the machine. One thing that fascinated me about this I also is a Saudi Arabia. So I in Arabic comes with lamb like what's the Aloha saga?
Here, Saudi Arabia, when you use the lamb, it's called de la vida, which means there's a clear goal, you're making efforts towards something cyclin Jenna, I'm making efforts towards then when you say Sal de Fulani officiate, it actually means you're making a lot of efforts, but you don't really have a goal.
You don't even know why you're doing it.
These guys are making all these efforts to corrupt the house of Allah. They want to prevent Islam from coming forward. It's not like they have some alternative purpose.
It's not some higher cause that's fighting against Islam. There is no purpose. It's just we don't want anything different. We want things to stay exactly as they are. This is Safi habia. Okay. Now, this ayah interestingly enough, now there's there's been two references to
the Kaaba. And so the
first we saw is Loma Linda.
Now we're seeing the houses of Allah being corrupted and the biggest the most prominent example of 1000s of lobbying corrupted is the Kaaba,
Allah is alluding somehow over and over again to the importance of the Kaaba
This after an entire passage was about previous revelation is is retired is one. So, and this has taken its place, you know what is preparing us for,
to restore the such that wherever he wanted it
and to bring back the Kaaba to its original position and to prepare even the Jewish community that you're going to have to accept that because it's going to move from where
it's going I'm going to move from Jerusalem
to karma This is quayside like a illusionary references allies that being direct about it is kind of throwing it in in there. Little by little by little look at the next I what a lie how much Nicole Malibu a lot alone owns the east and the west for a number two Hello, wherever you may turn. For someone who loves their their lives the face of Allah. Is this the first time you hear the word face?
The second time right? Before it was actually, you know, we saw the reference. Watch how hula balama as Lama was how hula? The one who submitted their face before Allah. By the way, when you put your face down, can you look up? Or no?
You can't. You can't. So if you have if your insights that can you see anybody's face,
you can but you know those faces of the people of size that guess what they get to do on Judgement Day
they get to see a less face
would you even now there are a lot of Bihar. Now, completion patients will be lit up and they've been looking up at their master staring at their master.
This is actually UD do not watch Allah they want the face of Allah meaning they want to see a live face to face, you keep your head down here in this world and you get to keep your head up on Judgement Day.
That's the beauty of it, you get to actually look at them. There are people who don't get to see a line a level and look at them on Judgment. And by the way, seeing someone's face actually means that they're looking at you and you're looking at them, there's a face to face, that's gonna happen. Our preparation for a meeting of less faces size down. That's the the other side a lot owns the east and the west wherever you may be, that is where the face of a lie is. In other words, you will face a lot
you know, the Muslims have to hear this because they have now left Makkah they had left the house of Allah. They were in Medina, they were praying they were when they used to pray these to pray towards Jerusalem because that was the instruction and their back used to be towards the Kaaba and allies telling the Muslims don't worry, unless don't direction doesn't matter. What matters is that you are submission you're in submission to for Allah, and you'll find a loving happy with you. Allah is vast, all knowledgeable in allow us here on it. And alongside that the Jews are being alluded to, they're being told something
directions about to change along the east and the west. So don't complain.
I can make you make sense of that to the east and make you excited to the west. That's my decision, not yours, because they're gonna have to, because they they actually and I didn't get into the Jewish psychology of how they thought about a song and the profits lotion. That'll be in the next two passages from now, when we actually talk about the change of the Qibla fascinating story, how the Qibla change this absolutely incredible story.
But when we do get there, you'll learn some things about the fact that they didn't actually see themselves as a separate religion.
They actually thought that they're still
okay dug deep down inside, they didn't believe in the Prophet. They hated him because he's Arab. But they couldn't deny that actually internally accepted the use of Medina. That's what makes it even angrier at them. On the one hand, you're not even convinced and you're fighting it. They were convinced and they were fighting it.
Then it's just you're just doing it out of pride. That's the only explanation. You're just doing it out of pride. That's the closest thing they shut down there is
And he's still doing it. Just out of pride.
So now when he learned how much the one mega enema to allopathic, Mashallah, this I really love this I about this, this is one word in this ayah that really captured me to allude
to where Luke comes from the verb when you will Lee and Li ul Li means not just a turn,
but to make somebody turn. Those of you that are familiar with the patterns of self, there's the one law there's the one law and there's well, like, I love my family. I love family. That'd be wonderful. You will need to listen. And this is not this. I think the dream students haven't done Narcos this year yet. Right? Okay, they have it Okay. Then there's that Allah
to Allah Yahweh Allah tala Leon, there's two different ones. It's like the difference between Allah and Allah, worlds apart. Now one of them actually means to turn.
That's not the word of law used. For in our final motto, well, lo phenomenological law, that would have been the
were one of us for a demo to well, Lou, this is the Medallia it's much zoom. And it's actually from a welder you will lead it's the it's the the one that means to turn and to make somebody turn now this is I'll stop being technical. I'll tell you in plain English, what I'm talking about
a line this is saying not only do you turn in prayer,
but when you do, you don't realize you're turning other people in prayer.
You're in a parking lot by yourself. Allahu Akbar, you prayed. You didn't just turn in prayer, you actually just by that act, have turned others in prayer.
There's a presence of angels behind you, you turn them.
Somebody's driving past you what is that
takes a video of that looks it up, then becomes Muslim, and they never met you. You're just in some target parking lot.
you inspire others. When you pray. You turn others towards Allah. There's an effect of the prayer on society around you. Even the non Muslims around you, everybody else, you could be in a park in the middle of somewhere. And you just started praying. And there's a Muslim that's walking by who hasn't been praying, and he sees you praying. He says, Man, I should pray.
You didn't give him a lecture about prayer. You didn't tell him to pray, you just saw you pray and he's like, I feel like praying.
And he just goes and prays.
In other words, Allah is saying the beautiful beauty of the word is wherever you may be, wherever you might turn, you will not just turn yourself you will also turn others and there you will find the face of Allah in the law alessian and that, that gives you a new flavor to the meaning of Allah is vast and knowledgeable. Meaning a lot of vastness will encompass people and He will guide people through you that you don't even know and in ways you can't even encompass. And in ways you will never ever know because he's Aleem, you're not and he's watching and you're not you just make your Salah and you let the effect of it be in his hands panela
for it I cannot wait What do you have inside that one more bottle that I love Allah aina moto tala casada Baba. Allah is saying here that if a human being truly truly seeks to, you know, put their face down and make Allah happy, then wherever they are, they will find a way that kind of which have to go forward from our Yoni yas bill Nevada and no condesa but who are the Helen Lyall birth and yecla. Amina Kanata, Allah Macondo Alia, Alia, who took on what a heavy thing, man, what a beautiful thing that's been said, you know, what's been said here, you could be in the most
You can be in the worst place, the place that nobody even thinks about Allah, and you pray, and you turn back to Allah. And you will find a love there with you. You won't find any believer with you, you won't find any support for Islam with you, you won't find any, you will find a lot with you. And you could be in the most sacred of places. You could be at the wall of the Kaaba, and you don't have a line your heart and you will find nothing but Phil.
She could because it's, it's what you have inside you, and what you have inside you, for me, no matter what no Fatima watch for love, wherever you may be, that's where you find the love space.
There are people that can be like so close to the especially the number we're so close to the Kaaba
and still do the worst things.
The worst things, and there are people who've never even seen the camera. They've never had the chance to even leave their small town somewhere. And they're so close to Allah. So, so close to Allah, some old lady in some village somewhere in Malaysia that just recycle on all day and the color of a line, you know, teaches her grandchildren or something and
then no internet, no electricity, no nothing, but she's connected to a lover to good.
You know, holla at number two, it's such an inspiring ayah. Allah owns the east and the west. Don't you think? You know what this does to that mentality of a Muslim? What does it tell you? wherever you live, no, I want to go to a more Islamic environment.
I want to be in a better environment for my children.
You know, the prophet SAW Selim, when he lived in Makkah, he lived in a minority.
Right Muslims were a minority, when you move to Medina was in the minority.
The entire life of the Prophet is spent as
a minority and as soon as he became a majority of the token
why are Why are they saying we should move to a more Islamic environment?
Medina had prostitution houses.
Why aren't they saying we should move to a world Islamic environment?
You know why? Because they are the Islamic environment.
You're not just turning to Allah you are turning what what did I kept saying? Turning others to Allah you create the environment. You are the ripple effect. Allah saying go spread this Deen wherever you go be be ambassadors of a carrier don't say well there's better Islam here better Islam there. Islam is not any. It's not a place. Islam is in the hearts of people.
Islam is where the Muslims are. That's where Islam is. So Islam is here.
If you accept that if you internalize that Panama, you are in at least out of the masjid and
the entire Earth was turned into a machine for me and purified for me.
The entire Earth was turned into a machine. What does that mean? It doesn't just mean you can pray anywhere. If it's good enough to pray, is good enough to live
is good enough to thrive? is good enough for a lot is good enough for you, bro. You're good. The Earth was made into a machine. You know?
He says about the people who are custodians of the Kaaba, but they were corrupt. Macau, Macedonia, who
they're not friends, doesn't matter if they take care of the Kaaba. And not only in Alia takuan. His his friends are only the people of taqwa only the people that are conscious of Allah, Allah.
So I'll watch that also, they say that you're going to get to see a lot face to face. And I already told you this, this is alluding to the coming shift in the and the Kaaba and shout out and it's time for your next break. We only got to do one, but that's heavier to do. And I did cover a few things. There's a book that I've got a 4050 copies of from England, by Dr. Khan Academy, about the role of women in the machine.
And I think either it's in my office or in my trunk, I'll find out. I'm pretty sure it's in the office actually. But I'm going to leave some copies here. You are free to make copies of it.
And you're free to turn into PDFs and whatever. I don't I couldn't find it online yet. But spread that stuff. Spread it because we have to restore the place in the massage and for everybody.
