Episode Notes

Ustadh Nouman gives a comprehensive lecture on Ayats 116-120 of the esteemed Surah Al Baqarah that deals with another type of Shirk that the Christians of the time were indulging in which was that Allah has a son, Ma’zAllah.

These Ayaat refute the Christians, the Jews and the Arab idolaters who claimed that Allah had taken a son, MazaAllah. Allah SWT refutes the claim by saying, “Subhanahu – Glory is to Him,” meaning He is Holier and more Perfect than what they attribute to Him.

The disbelievers used to deny the Prophethood of Muhammad ﷺ; some of them did so out of sheer hatred and jealousy. In order to feel triumphant in this uncouth behavior, they would make absurd and impossible demands, two of which have been mentioned in the Ayats 118-119. They insisted that Allah SWT Himself should speak to them, either directly as He speaks to the angels, or through the angels as He speaks to the Prophets. He should also announce that He sent Muhammad ﷺ as a Prophet, thus, making it easy for them to have faith in him and to follow his guidance. Ignorance to the max!

Allah SWT informs him that this behavior of theirs is not due to lack of convincing arguments and proofs, but is caused by pride and self-satisfaction. Allah SWT informs the Prophet ﷺ that there is no likelihood of pleasing either of them until and unless he accepts their religion. Therefore, do not seek what pleases or appeases them, and stick to what pleases Allah SWT by calling them to the truth that He sent you with.

Our mission is to spread awareness of the message and divine beauty of Quran across the world support our [email protected] there's ba y y i n H dot o RG out there him initiate line

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

Carlota holla

00:00:19--> 00:00:33

Subhana Allah Murphy semi YT Well, the cooloola who corny to buddy Oh semi wet he went out there Cabo Milan, in Maya Buddha, who

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

probably somebody were silly Emily was

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

calling

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

early, he was happy.

00:00:45--> 00:01:22

Another switch in subject, you notice that, you know, on in passing, Michigan were mentioned and then the Qibla hijacking was mentioned. And then now in passing, the Christians were also mentioned, and now a low focus on the Christians. And inshallah, when I talk about how all of these are tied together, I'll explain this in some more detail. But now a level turned to yet another kind of shake. And that is committed by the Christians and some elements of the Jews are Carlota have Allahu Allah and they said, Allah has taken a son, taking a son is different from having a son. And I brought this up when we first mentioned their beliefs, but I'll review some of this briefly with

00:01:22--> 00:01:28

you. When there are certain factions of Christianity that believe God literally had a son,

00:01:29--> 00:02:08

they call the Begotten Son, right? That's very literal, graphic language. And that's the kind of blasphemy that's on the one end, then there are some more subtle forms of Christianity, we don't see that God had a son and became the father. But it's closer to what the Romans used to do. The Romans. Interestingly enough, the Roman emperors, they didn't always choose their son to be the next Emperor. So what they used to do was they used to find, because their son may be too short or not good looking, or not a good warrior or not, like you don't choose the genetics of your son, your son may or may not be a great leader may or may not be the qualities you wanted in a son. But in their

00:02:08--> 00:02:45

army, they would find somebody who's you know, charismatic, handsome, tall, you know, intelligent, and has all the qualities that they would have wanted in a son. And what the Romans used to do is they would say, From this day forth, you are my I have taken you as a son, and pass Kingdom on to them. So the idea was, God choose it, or rather, the king chooses, you know, of all the things that he's all the subjects that he has someone that's good enough to be considered his son and makes them his son and then passes the kingdom on to them to this was actually a Roman kind of thing found among the Caesars also.

00:02:46--> 00:03:02

So along those lines, Somebody said, Well, this may be a much better way to explain, you know, God's relationship with Jesus, because the whole begotten thing gets to graphic and last semester, maybe just God chose him because he's so awesome. And said, well, you I've taken him up as my son.

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

The Quran says, even that's blasphemy.

00:03:06--> 00:03:44

Because even that suggests that you didn't have control over, you know, so much of what you could create or what could have come from you. And so you had to go outside and pick something that was good enough, kind of that's that was the rationale that the Romans used to use. So unless there's some Hana who is too far above that he's too perfect to be given that kind of a label. So Hannah, who are Subhan, Allah in the Quran, is an expression that describes what is your reaction to blasphemy? And somebody blasphemous, they say something inappropriate about Allah, the reaction is Subhana, Allah subhana wa Tada. So when [???] gets mentioned, Subhana Allah Allah, Allah Subhana

00:03:44--> 00:03:58

Allah He I'm not usually good. You know? So Hannah, what Allah ma aku Luna Luna when Kabira when they say blasphemous things, you say Subhana Allah, this is important to note because you know, Alhamdulillah is the thing you say under virtually any situation.

00:04:00--> 00:04:16

But Subhana Allah, more often is said and in horrible situations, blasphemous situations, terrible situations. That's when Subhana Allah is honored, okay? Are there other places to other Subhana Allah also to express one's humility? before Allah, that's also done.

00:04:18--> 00:04:55

But actually, just the declaration of Subhana Allah itself you'll find in Hadith literature and Koran literature, it's done more and more in shocking situations or terrible situations. So here, a horrible thing that has been said. And so Hannah now to remind you of the meanings of Suppan from sabaha, which means to swim, or to float. The idea is that we believe certain things about a lot and we keep his grander, his wisdom, his knowledge, his uniqueness of float, we say things about him that keep him at a certain level. And we don't say things about him that bring him below that level. We don't let it sink at all. You see. So that's the idea of soprano and by the way, the way it

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

allows name and his attributes and His perfection floats, nothing else can float

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

to that level. So there's two things into speak. In this way, you don't say anything about a law that brings him down to the level of creation. And also you don't take anything about creation, you say things about them that make them sound like a law, so is one crime is to reduce God and the other is to elevate creation. And we prevent both of them when we say Subhan, Allah subhana wa who Bella who my personality will, instead, he alone owns whatever is in the skies in the earth. He doesn't have to pick and choose and then take a son when he owns all of it anyway, all of what there is living or non Lahu Martha's sumati will, Colin Lokhande tune everything all creation is

00:05:40--> 00:06:24

submissive to him. Con it is a heavy word limp Sacco annual, annual Kara con it actually one of its meanings is when someone stops talking out of humility. That's kind of under our office SATA connectors. Also when someone is pleading to a lion in the middle of their prayers, and canuto, horseshoe claro below Buddha, notice humility. It's being in awe. And it also means someone who has now is willing to just fall fall into servitude and tiamo with power. And that he lays a Maha Mercia when you stand and obey willingly, and there's not an ounce of eagerness to disobey left in you like willing and eager. That's actually good. Okie dokie? Um, well, the other thing that I love and know

00:06:24--> 00:07:03

who I love and who else awesome, okay, like a politician can also mean standing for a long time like a servant or a guard standing in front of their king like this for a long time. They're actually their cabinet. Allah says every one of them is in on it is called before him called Luna, who cartoon? What is that a reference to? It's a reference to what you think that Allah has taken a son, meaning he took a profit as a son, or he took angels as daughters or whatever. All of these that you mentioned, are people that are actually subservient to Allah already. Allah didn't have to bring them close to him by declaring them his son, they're already in the ultimate subservience to Allah

00:07:03--> 00:07:33

coluna who cartoon so for what it seems to be is not making reference here to all of creation, is has to do to Allah. But those that you make shared with those that you associate him with are actually humbled themselves. In other words, they shouldn't become the objects of your worship because they themselves are in worship to Allah kulula who can atone so now and then he makes the argument about himself. And that is he doesn't need to, you know, find those creative qualities in somebody

00:07:34--> 00:07:48

so that they can match and then finally he can pass off his kingdom or take a son, but do somehow it went out of the creative initiator of the skies and the earth by the way, when I fail to mention, there's a hadith narrated by Jabba the Allahu taala and who

00:07:49--> 00:08:00

I use allottee of what he asked. So in an episode of the Prophet was asked which which prayer is the best, or which prayers better? He says to Lulu, the one that has the longest keynote?

00:08:01--> 00:08:09

And it says your Adobe Tolkien, what's it what are camera, what he means by crudest, standing humbly,

00:08:10--> 00:08:50

meaning when you stand and recite Quran, the longer you can do that, that's the best kind of Salah that's what and so he instead of saying standing, he used the word keynote, which is an indication of what the spirit of standing in Salah is, you're supposed to stand with humility, before Allah. So that's called Luna who can attune but do sumati without a moody aroma for who are very women that Estella O'Shea law and mother actually means but they are somewhat The one who creates with that without any ingredients, he creates out of nothing, all the time, what could be more creative, creative than creating out of nothing and understand the the human concept of creativity. When I

00:08:50--> 00:09:08

create a an architect designs, a new building, or an artist makes a new painting or, you know, a chef makes a new dish, a new recipe, invents a new recipe or something, or an author writes a new novel, there was always something before it, that was used as a basis to build off

00:09:09--> 00:09:45

those like there are it's basically the same ingredients. It's a different mix of the same ingredients that we call creativity. Right? There's a little less sugar in this one, and a little more salt in that one. And there's a little extra, this one little, it's a new thing. But it's actually the same stuff. It's still a building, it's still bricks. It's still glass, it's still steel is still a building. It's just the way that it's organized. Now, those those existing components, the way that they've been manipulated is different. And novel at the end of the day, it's a it's an amazing novel, nothing like this has ever been written. Well, parts of this are

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

similar to some other story. Another part is similar to another story, another part to another story. It's actually pieces of things that are that are found all over from the author's personal experience, which is also a pre existing condition. I call it a condition with authors.

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

You know,

00:10:02--> 00:10:06

creativity is actually a combination of fragments of things you've experienced,

00:10:07--> 00:10:16

you know, and then you put them together in a way that's entirely new. That's what that's what creativity is when Allah calls himself

00:10:17--> 00:10:28

the initiate the one who's creative in a way without any previous ingredients like to give you an example like I was really into when I was younger I was really into like alien movies

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

and they make all kinds of fun aliens right?

00:10:32--> 00:10:45

tentacles and like eight arms or all kinds of stuff. But he's still in one way or the other have eyes and a mouth. And okay, they have eight arms, they still arms

00:10:47--> 00:11:00

they still it's still some component of what you've seen and experienced, twisted and turned into some other way. And now that's that's an alien thing. Right? Allah azza wa jal didn't have any former blueprint when He created you and me

00:11:02--> 00:11:16

or like mountains or oceans or fish or you know the scales on the snake or there's no there's no pre existing inspired by this I made this you know, like my kids and I watch cooking shows a lot.

00:11:17--> 00:11:57

What made you make this this Well, my grandmother she used to make these cakes and I used it you know? Like okay super creative from this memory that it's inspired by that right? allows origin is saying that he doesn't need anything before to create. He creates entirely new buddy or somehow it without the creative initiator of the skies in the earth is acaba de cada Imran and whenever he makes a decision, whenever he's decreed a matter for in amya kulula, who can fire kuno and all he says to it, is B and it comes into existence for in America local fair, why would he need to have a son

00:11:58--> 00:12:10

or taking a son waiting for somebody to be groomed and they're ready he can make whatever he wants, whenever he wants, however he wants. Why would you attribute such weakness to him? You know, for him I akula.

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

You know this ayah.

00:12:14--> 00:12:32

Notice what's happened in these two or two, two sets of at first, you have people that are stopping others from the house of Allah. Allah is not being mentioned. When Allah stops being mentioned, confusion spreads. When confusion and ignorance spread, people can come out with claims like even Allah has taken what

00:12:33--> 00:12:37

I saw and people will actually follow it because the massages are no longer playing the role.

00:12:38--> 00:12:48

If the massage is playing the role ignorance wouldn't spread. It couldn't spread. And so you have to remind people who are allies again, but the Euro symbol it went up in Aqaba.

00:12:51--> 00:13:00

It's not an accidental sequence, you see, allies mentioning one of the worst forms of ignorance about Allah after mentioning that there were institutions that prevented a lot from being mentioned

00:13:01--> 00:13:13

this a very direct logical connection here. What will happen in let's go back to Muslims every time I try to go back to Muslims, right? What will happen in a Muslim society when the machines no longer play their role?

00:13:15--> 00:13:25

Will there be shared and blasphemous stuff being said about Allah crazy beliefs that are almost Christian widespread in the Muslim community?

00:13:26--> 00:13:28

Is that possible? Now you know why

00:13:29--> 00:13:50

it's all there. Like a lot already said this is what's gonna happen when you do this. This is what happens. This is not some surprising turnover Hence, the blueprints already laid out entirely so not Allah will in 30 days from that Allah hitter de la la created humanity a certain way. And luckily in his laws a certain way when you mess with his laws, corruption happens in the corruption happens in a certain way.

00:13:51--> 00:14:16

You know, in outside lockable, healthy, but she Rwanda, and what's the solution to all of this? How do we fix this problem? How do we take people out of that depth of misguidance we have no doubt sent you with truth and have means purpose, it means truth. Other said and not us and maccabean Quran and Al Quran, essentially, with the Koran, which is all the same Quran is the purpose, what is the truth? What is the mission?

00:14:17--> 00:14:24

And Khurana you know, the idea of purpose means there is no Dean, there's no worldview that will give you a purpose, like this book.

00:14:25--> 00:14:51

And others have given you that, that book, that book, this heart machine, when the run couldn't be a heart of Huck, it could be a pile of QA, which means you have been sent as a giver of good news and a giver of warnings. And the truth that you've been given is also a truth that gives good news and gives warnings. So the machine learn when the run could be about the hook. And the machinery when the hero could also be about car in Santa Monica. You know, so now what else

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

can you do your job you just spread revelation, no matter how bad you know and how corrupt you know things get. You just continue to spread as well.

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

You won't be asked about the people of the flame. Well,

00:15:04--> 00:15:11

you just do your work. Now here, what I would like to share with you is how this, we're near the conclusion now, but how things have progressed.

00:15:12--> 00:15:31

I told you there's a logical connection between the people who prevent from the houses of Allah and then ignorance like the son of Allah kind of thing spreading. There's another thing here. There's corruption. And there's ignorance to great destroyers of faith, corruption, and what ignorance.

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

Where does it Where does the problem begin?

00:15:34--> 00:15:50

corruption, because when corruption rises, then the doors to correct knowledge become closed, but that access is no longer there. And then what spreads? ignorance. We today when we say we are fixed the problem of the oma, we say the real problem is ignorance.

00:15:51--> 00:15:56

Right? The Quran seems to be making a case case that the fundamental problem is what?

00:15:57--> 00:16:16

corruption and corruption leads to ignorance. The byproduct of corruption is ignorance. Okay. That's what we have to challenge first. And in the Quran, in this discourse in particular, this is a discourse this, this is a discourse about a nation that believed that had a book and they messed up.

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

And they messed up because of their corruption. And despite their book being in their presence, they were still became a people of ignorance. The legal religious leadership was corrupt that the vast majority was ignorant. That's what happened. That's what happened with the Israelites. that exact problem will repeat itself.

00:16:34--> 00:17:09

If the religious real enough, religious leadership becomes corrupt, and the vast majority will become what? ignorant. And so you have to fix both of these and tackle both of these problems and take them head on. And if you and the only way and how do you take them at all? What do you do? That's number 119. That's what this is in Knoxville, Knoxville, hockey bashira. Whenever you don't be intimidated. I know this problem seems what much bigger than you can solve. We've sent you with the ultimate truth. Just keep giving good news and keep giving warnings. Give people give the masses hope and give the criminals warnings.

00:17:10--> 00:17:35

People that have fallen into sin have fallen into ignorance and fallen lost their way. give them hope. Give them good news. And people that are the sources of corruption and think they're getting away with it. Give them warnings. And if they don't change their ways, don't worry about it. You're not going to be asked about the people of James not to say Don't worry about them. You just do your part. You don't worry about it. Hey, they're not listening. They're not changing, things are getting worse. That's not your problem. You just do what you got to do.

00:17:36--> 00:17:47

Now the conversation comes full full circle where this this entire passage began is where it ends. It comes back to the Jews and Christians remember we started with the Jews and Christians colonial agenda 11 kana who then

00:17:49--> 00:17:54

it comes to the conclusion the same way. lender the anchor will enter the anchor Yehuda nesara. had

00:17:55--> 00:17:56

the right

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

or the right okay, I skipped one.

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

Sorry.

00:18:02--> 00:18:37

Oh my god big I skipped my fault. What color Latina la la luna? 118. I skipped you Right. Well, color Latina La la la la la la la la la hotel Tina. Aya catolica colander the nominee? LA County MTA Chabad ku dnn? iottie COVID? UK? No. Those who have no knowledge? Who are the people who have no knowledge. In this passage? There were Jews and Christians and then there was the people who have no knowledge. Who are they? Misha Kanaka those people who have no knowledge they say, Lola you can leave on Allah. How come Allah doesn't talk to us? Why do I still listen to you?

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

God is all powerful. He could talk to me directly.

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

Oh, Tina Ayah or how come no miracle comes to us?

00:18:45--> 00:19:11

karateka color Latina men koblin clear people that came much before them that had exactly the same thing. Exactly that exact highlight the word exactly because the word gallica and then Miss Laconia him is hammering it twice in. It is just like this, that those who came much before them said exactly the kinds of words they're saying mithila Cody, the Shabbat Shalom, how close their hearts are.

00:19:12--> 00:19:48

their soul the same as the ancient peoples that came they're saying the same thing that Iran said and the nation of who the traditional silent the nation shape came 1000s of years ago, centuries ago in some cases, and yet their hearts are all connected because they say exactly the same thing. At the beginning, in Khomeini by the way notice, Allah didn't just say their words are the same. He said their hearts are the same. Before he mentioned you have your real problem his arrogance which was in the hearts now he diagnosis the hearts again, because you can their hearts are the same, but the way you analyze it and by the way, don't you get everything that you have done. The prophets not

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

done enough to convince them of Islam or the Quran is inadequate in its proofs and things like that. We've already clarified the IOD we've already been clarified the miracles and made them abundantly clear for who

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

Coming up noon for a nation that's actually looking to be convinced. Arabic students take note Coleman is Nikita

00:20:07--> 00:20:46

and UK known as a film about it, which means it's a sofa. And when a Ferrell comes as a sofa, then it actually is Marcus in other words moccasin meaning in other words, not a nation that is convinced a nation that is seeking to be convinced that is trying to be convinced it's something missing in the verb likoma Niala moon common yellow Moon is gonna mean a people that want to know or trying to know comunale Moon is something else. People who know not annoying people. So the common European allies making a comment. Using the Quran or the Prophet hasn't been given miracles, the prophet has been given miracles, but these miracles are only going to be obvious to those who are looking to be

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

convinced.

00:20:48--> 00:21:25

People that are looking to criticize whoever problem in their hearts, the Shabbat Shalom, their hearts are similar. They're just making claims like this because they don't want to accept it in their hearts. They just they have no appreciation for revelation, they just want to you know, make fun of it. Those kinds of people this book has nothing to offer them. But people that are looking to be convinced their hearts will just go just crumble before this book. They will humble themselves before this book. If you have an IRA, Jonathan yehudah saranno mottolino machine learning machine. This ayah compares them the Jews and the Christians and puts them in the same place as the machine

00:21:25--> 00:22:03

because previously they were the ones criticizing the prophecies on them. Now the machine akun like you're not doing much different Leander Michigan Allah poofy ha Islam Ashok Kumar Allahu Felisa de Mola, Daniela be accelerated the catalyst nama la fille de la jolla for Canada hood when nesara militina beam so yeah, Mishra cool how are they that different? You guys say Ally's taken a son. They have idols that that worship, you know that they worship besides a lot, you're in the same category when it comes to doing schicke. So that that's why they're put next to one another. But the thing that I wanted to highlight here is, you know, in the beginning, the criticism was, nobody's

00:22:03--> 00:22:25

going to heaven except you and Christian. And we said, Bring your evidences. Now there's turning the table the ignorant or turning the table and saying, if you gave us evidence we will accept How come Allah doesn't talk to me directly. That would be pretty clear evidence. How come you don't show me a miracle? That would be pretty clear evidence. But the Quran is colossal we already did. I already showed you proof. I don't have to show you anymore.

00:22:26--> 00:22:45

What proof that have already given them that Alyssa has already showed it to you. I don't have to show you anymore. It's actually the fact that the both the message and the miracle has been received in the form of the Quran. Look at what the prophet says isonem nominal ambia nebby illa booty Amina iottie Miss Lu Amina Allah Hill Basha.

00:22:46--> 00:22:55

There was never a prophet than Allah except Allah gave them some miracles, the likes of which had never been seen. And the people as a result believed in that Prophet.

00:22:56--> 00:23:34

Well, in them I can Allah duty to ohama who Allah, and the thing that I have been given is the revelation that Allah revealed to me, for out of an akuna axon tambien Yo, malkia Mati. And I'm hoping that I will be the, the one with the most followers, on all the prophets that were given miracles, I will be one of the one of the most followers on the Day of Resurrection. Why? Because the revelation has been given the miracle that has been given lives on. It doesn't die with mythology. It doesn't die with a Sunday so that we leave this world with a Sunday. So now, his lives on for the Magna Carta in an IRA Coleman, min chutney him and yukino, Alicia Kiku and foster home,

00:23:35--> 00:23:48

Allah saying, We've already clarified these miracles, the overpowering nature of the Quran has already become clear to them. You know, I interject so much explanation, as I'm talking to you about these ions. These guys were getting hit with the ion directly,

00:23:49--> 00:23:59

one after the other after the other after the other. And these are people that appreciate powerful speech, that's all they have. The way they got hit with it.

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

You would just have to just sit there and go that's not human.

00:24:03--> 00:24:06

That's just not human. Like you realize the prophets eyes on him.

00:24:08--> 00:24:18

He spoke to them for 40 years. You know, he communicates with them all the time. Then Quran comes down, he starts speaking cron to them. Can they tell this is not how he speaks?

00:24:20--> 00:24:41

Like if I was if I memorize something and said it to you, wouldn't you be able to tell that's not my speech? immediately. And usually when you're saying something else, you can come up with some memorize some quotes somewhere and say it once or twice. Eventually people will catch on where'd you get it from? The Quran keeps coming and keeps coming and keeps going and keeps coming.

00:24:42--> 00:24:56

And he Where does he get this from? Who's around here that's giving him this stuff. Like they're baffled. There's no no escape, but this is revelation. Because anybody else Yes, you can speak not like yourself, but you'll sound crazy.

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

You just sound insane.

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

This is the height of wisdom, insight, history, law holiday. It's like it's everything that you every bit of human inquiry in the phrasing and then every phrase sold rich with wisdom and beauty and then on top of that it rhymes and it's got its music on its own, its own music, its own divine music. Like Allah says, I've already clarified to you

00:25:24--> 00:25:35

for people that are willing to be convinced they could just sit there and listen and that'll be enough for them. That will be enough for them jinn For God's sake, Jin would hear the Quran and say, on an algebra, we heard a unique or

00:25:37--> 00:25:38

what have we just heard?

00:25:39--> 00:25:43

And generally pretty International. I would argue intergalactic,

00:25:44--> 00:25:48

or they hear lots of stuff. And they heard Quran and they were just like,

00:25:49--> 00:25:50

what is this?

00:25:51--> 00:25:55

We haven't heard anything like this since them most you know what I mean by the Messiah?

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

We have an order book like this since most the time

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

is that something so epic? That they were just baffled by what they heard? And

00:26:07--> 00:26:10

I don't get me started about the gin because

00:26:11--> 00:26:15

what you learn about the Quran, and their relationship with the Quran

00:26:17--> 00:26:21

so powerful. I just say one thing, I'm tangent mode.

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

Are you one thing?

00:26:24--> 00:27:03

You know that when the Quran came? Do you realize that um, came and he had a following? Okay, so my barring some, I mean, he has a following. So it's like this document Koran is coming. So it's coming with legions of angels behind God. Like the security detail is the most classified document in the universe is coming from the seventh heaven to Muhammad's life for them. You know, when important documents travel, there's lots of security gibril don't need no security, or they said but even then, unless sent like legions of angels, and then how many scars are there? Seven scars what Allah did is he locked down six of them.

00:27:04--> 00:27:14

He locked down six of them. And the Djinn who used to be able to go were shut down. They couldn't even go into the first guy. Even this actually the seventh guy was locked down to

00:27:15--> 00:27:21

so they used to join us to have some spots in the in the skies and you know, out in space where they hang out.

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

And they're trying to go there and they're getting shot at with meteors.

00:27:26--> 00:27:39

Like we can't go to our usual spot between Pluto and whatever like they can't go to their their normal hangout spots. Like what is happening? Why can't we go up into the sky and all the jinn are stuck on the what

00:27:40--> 00:27:56

on the earth? Because they can't go into the sky? This is this is their story in total Gen By the way, like we don't know what's going on is and since the entire skies have been locked up and the only thing open to access is what this world either this world is about to end

00:27:58--> 00:28:12

or something amazing is happening. Something's happening. We don't know what it is. And Nanodegree a shout out among other Bahamut Obama Russia we don't know what's is there some great catastrophe about to hit the Earth or something good is coming.

00:28:13--> 00:28:19

You know, when they said that? They heard the Quran, the prophet in life they heard the Quran being recited

00:28:21--> 00:28:25

and they said oh, this is why it's shut down.

00:28:26--> 00:28:33

This is why Oh, I get it now. Oh, we got it. Okay, okay. Okay. Now it makes sense.

00:28:35--> 00:28:37

That's what was coming Koran was coming.

00:28:38--> 00:28:40

So when they heard it, they were just

00:28:41--> 00:28:45

in awe of you know, then they understood why the entire scars were on lockdown.

00:28:47--> 00:28:49

Can you imagine like that same Quran

00:28:50--> 00:29:00

and these Jin are hearing this for the first time and they're like, they couldn't move. Allah says Allah Maha Babu Carlo unsettle so amazing.

00:29:01--> 00:29:04

They were passing by. If you know

00:29:05--> 00:29:29

what is it? It's sarraf na la Cana for a minute jenius damiana Al Quran. We made a group of gin pass by you. And they started listening to the corner like a group of guys passing by. They kind of overhear something for the Mahabharata when they were when they found themselves in its presence. Look at the language when they found themselves in its presence called unsettle. They said to each other yo shut up I want to listen

00:29:31--> 00:29:32

to when we will

00:29:34--> 00:29:45

follow maccabiah and when it was all done, one low in our call me here Monday, they will rushed back to their nation became Warner's of the dean became preachers of the dean.

00:29:46--> 00:29:51

So amazing. So so amazing. That was the effect of Quran on Jain man.

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

The and this was in the language of the Arabs. This was in the language of the Arabs. They have they heard this stuff and they knew

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

So when they have the audacity to say, how come you don't give us a miracle? How come nothing impressive has come down yet?

00:30:07--> 00:30:33

Unless as I already have, I don't need to explain myself to you. God will you know that for anybody who wants to be convinced though, you call me neutrino and NASA lockable Huck shoe, never think that you have anything missing, we've sent you with ad hoc is nothing short of ad hoc in what you've been given. You just continue but she don't want to run without us having to him. You keep giving good news and give warnings. And the people that are stubborn that don't want to listen, you're not going to be asked about that.

00:30:34--> 00:30:42

Well under the hood cassara Hatoyama town, Arabic students here will tell me learn Tada, and how many people is

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

one person?

00:30:46--> 00:30:55

The Jews and the Christians will not be pleased with you how many user here? One person it's talking to the Prophet? I saw them.

00:30:56--> 00:31:03

When you apply this ayah and say, Oh, this means us. Rather, the Quran says the US and Christians will not be happy with you.

00:31:06--> 00:31:08

It's first and foremost talking to who?

00:31:09--> 00:31:14

Our messenger. By extension, it's talking to us, but that's a huge extension. Let's understand that.

00:31:16--> 00:31:22

Why won't they be happy with you had to be on a letter home until you will follow their religion.

00:31:23--> 00:32:00

Mila is one of the Arabic words for religion. It's actually my love comes from nyla also, which means to be inclined towards something to have a soft corner toward something to have a place in your heart toward something. Of course our religion is also called Dean right? But Dean refers to dealings in the religion right and wrong principles. ethics, that's Dean, but mill is actually the emotional part of our religion. What do we have affinity for? That's why our attachment table Rahim Allah Islam is not Deen unbecoming Rahim. Its military complain that you're in the middle of your father everyone he meaning you have an emotional attachment to your father, Ibrahim alayhi salam,

00:32:01--> 00:32:05

they say they will not be happy with you until you follow their mill.

00:32:06--> 00:32:15

But how many millas? Are they using Christians how many realize that too? I was expecting a lot of say hi data via military him.

00:32:17--> 00:32:24

They're both their religions Jewish and Judaism and Christianity. He says metadata home like it's one religion or one affiliation.

00:32:25--> 00:32:27

He's he started by uniting them in the beginning.

00:32:28--> 00:32:31

Linear Kolja 11. Canada no nesara

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

he ends by uniting them meloetta home, he puts them together again. The prophecy seven will tell us and go from in Latin wahida denial of the truth is one religion.

00:32:45--> 00:32:51

tall one religion. It looks different. But it's all one thing. It's all shades, it's sides of the same coin. That's all this is.

00:32:52--> 00:33:11

Now, let's dig a little bit deeper and understand that the Jews and the Christians are actually different and what makes them different here. Learn from the ankle yahood, voila, and nesara this land and law is neither nor so let's separate them, then he combined them. So let's separate them first. Do the Jews want you to convert to Judaism?

00:33:12--> 00:33:24

No. So what does it mean that they want you to follow their religion? They want you to follow your religion, the way they follow their religion. Keep it to yourself. Make whatever changes you want.

00:33:25--> 00:33:32

Doesn't matter what you know, so long as it's not, you know, coming after us. We're fine. That's their religion.

00:33:33--> 00:33:47

That's their religion. There is there is no stable morality or principles because anybody can come along and make a change. I mean, I've had conversations with orthodox rabbis about this stuff. Yeah, God gave us an intellect. And that means that we can make a decision about what is right or wrong for our times.

00:33:48--> 00:33:52

Yes, some things may not be kosher last year, but they can be this year.

00:33:53--> 00:33:56

It's fine. And that actually becomes the Word of God.

00:33:57--> 00:34:02

The same as the Word of God. Wow. That's like so Shirky.

00:34:04--> 00:34:11

Your word is the same as the Word of God. Really? But yeah, because you know, he authorized us to do that.

00:34:12--> 00:34:14

How to bronycon come to,

00:34:16--> 00:34:38

you know, that's what the Jews would like to do. They'd like to see you become much like them. The Christians would like to things some of them would like you to convert. That'd be awesome for them, or if not, then at least become a religion, which essentially has no laws, and just has general morality and then you just get to do whatever you really want to do.

00:34:39--> 00:34:45

You have a free lifestyle, and it's some spiritual teachings here and there and otherwise, you're fine.

00:34:47--> 00:34:48

If that's there, Mila

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

then there may be a concerted effort by some people, this this is still alive. There may be some concerted effort funding, you know, support

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

You know, from certain entities in the Muslim world to make sure that we either look like what the hood look like, or look like what the Christians look like,

00:35:10--> 00:35:12

and support efforts that keep us looking that way.

00:35:14--> 00:35:19

Keep us looking like we're just in our factions like, like, what does it look like when the oma looks like they,

00:35:20--> 00:35:54

you know, it looks like they're just they're so obsessed with their differences and their scholarship. And they're, they become this world in and of themselves where all they care about is their academics on top of academics and academics and their, their power, their national pastime is just refuting each other and they're just busy with that, and the world is burning around them. There's no conversation about justice or equality or, you know, oppression, you can forget all that stuff. Leave all that stuff alone, all the social and justices can be aside, religion is now about the differences of opinion about how something should be recited. Or, you know, what, how do you

00:35:54--> 00:36:01

fulfill this ritual or that ritual? Or differences? That's Islam? That's the debate. What kind of chicken?

00:36:02--> 00:36:09

Let's just do that. You know, and that's actually a study what Jews do, study how they operate in their religion, you see,

00:36:11--> 00:36:22

it's not so foreign. And on the other hand, have some random religion, which has nothing to do with law, nothing to do with Islamic law, or shady. It's just, I'm Muslim, because I feel it like it's in my heart.

00:36:24--> 00:36:28

And, you know, I celebrate that about myself.

00:36:29--> 00:36:39

And let's just spread that version of Islam. watered down, get rid of everything else that's practical. Just make it into the spiritual thing. Which is similar to what?

00:36:40--> 00:37:00

Masada they won't be happy until one of these two things happen. I would read this argument as not only they won't be happy until you convert to Judaism, or Christianity. But they won't be happy until Islam looks like Judaism. And Islam looks like Christianity. Until then they won't be happy. When you read it like that, you'll see a lot of that around, you know,

00:37:01--> 00:37:37

like you'll see efforts to make Islam look like Judaism or Christianity. And to keep it that way. colina hood Allahu Allah, what's the answer from Allah? Tell them Allah is guidance is the ultimate guidance, you know what will keep us from going to him and abani what will keep us in the middle, the guidance of Allah that is the ultimate ultimate guidance, our loyalty has to be to the book of Allah. As I conclude this passage, one more I left I do want to highlight this point, I will make this point 1000 times and it won't be enough. So if you've heard me say before, I don't care, because this is this is the heart of it all. When Allah says Allah guidance is the ultimate

00:37:37--> 00:37:42

guidance. You know the words used for the Quran in the Quran, one of the words used is light news.

00:37:43--> 00:37:56

Other night they can get even when you're a movie now, right? We've sent a book to you and a clear a clarifying light around is also called movie in clarifier. Not just clear, the clarifier what is the purpose of light, it clarifies things.

00:37:57--> 00:38:15

If there was no light in this room, it would not be clear where you are and where I am is not the case. The other thing about light, light is not what you see, light is the way through which you can see. I don't see light, I see because of light, you understand, light is not seen. Light helps you see

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

or on is light.

00:38:19--> 00:38:33

are on clarifies Quran is not clarified or actually clarifies You don't look at something else. And through that lens, you say I'm now I'm going to understand the Quran.

00:38:34--> 00:38:36

Quran will determine what you will understand.

00:38:37--> 00:39:17

Quran is at the heart of all the study of Islam. How will I understand the seed of the prophecies on through the Quran? How will I understand the sin of the process on through the Quran? How will they understand the law of this religion through the Quran? The Quran will be the light that sheds itself on all of these subject matters. You know what we've done in Islamic Studies, we actually take everything else and shed it onto the Koran. And then we say now we must understand the Quran this way. Because this quote here, or this history here, you cannot understand history. Koran will help you understand history. It's flipped because Allah calls it What? nude clarify, you're not the

00:39:17--> 00:39:19

clarified one, the clarifying one.

00:39:20--> 00:39:32

It's not what you shed light on. It's what's had lights on sheds light on all else. When you put the Quran in that place. And you know, somebody who hears me say this will say, Oh, this brother doesn't believe in Sundar doesn't believe in this.

00:39:33--> 00:39:35

You know what, say what you want.

00:39:37--> 00:39:59

I don't have to explain myself in reaction to some of these claims. I'll explain myself in reaction to my own convictions. Why does Allah say Kenny Mottola here earlier? The word of allies in the supreme place? The word of Allah lies Supreme. What has happened in the mind of the Muslims in the mind of the Muslims when they hear an eye of the Quran or a quote of an Imam or the the quote from like some some text or a Hadith of the Prophet or something

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

A statement of a Sahabi all of us just Islam.

00:40:03--> 00:40:06

I think it's in the Quran. Now. I think it's 100 I think it's a scholar.

00:40:09--> 00:40:19

Do we do that or no? And when you do that, have you put the word of Allah on the same plane as everything else? Well, Allah says the word of Allah lies Supreme. That's what he says.

00:40:20--> 00:40:21

These are the slight.

00:40:23--> 00:40:33

We even our study of history, No, brother, you can't understand this ayah until you understand the sila. I'm saying, bro, you can understand the Sierra.

00:40:34--> 00:40:38

Until you understand this ayah. The Sahaba couldn't understand what was happening

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

until the IOP came.

00:40:42--> 00:40:52

Think about that. They were in the CLR and they didn't get what was happening. I think Ron would come and say, you know, could be an ally at liko many of them were clarifying.

00:40:53--> 00:40:55

This is what's going on.

00:40:56--> 00:41:13

Nobody, like like how do you settle if I teach it all the time now, the slander of I shall be allowed on 30 days of hell. For the Muslim community 30 days of that slander, what is the lesson Latasha Bouchard hola como la jolla loco is not bad for you is good for you.

00:41:14--> 00:41:16

If anybody else said is good for me.

00:41:19--> 00:41:20

Credit is good for me.

00:41:22--> 00:41:27

Cohen comes and says you've experienced this let me shed a light on it that only a lot can shed. This is good for you.

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

This is good.

00:41:31--> 00:41:50

That's what I mean by a Koran at the center. In Muhammad Allah when Buddha you will find extremes you will find people becoming they look at the entire religion through law. The entire religion is law to them, nothing else. It's halal, haram MOBA, this, this this watch, that's all religion.

00:41:51--> 00:41:56

There are going to be some people will come around the entire religion and spirituality to them. It's nothing else.

00:41:57--> 00:41:59

Everything goes back to though it's a matter of the heart.

00:42:01--> 00:42:40

That's all it is. And you'll quote some beautiful poetry some incredible insightful spiritual texts. Some some great works like you know, a theological works. For some people, the entire religion is through a book of like aqidah text. Then you look at the whole thing through this manual. I'm saying there's one manual that Allah already gave through which you're supposed to look it's called the Fatiha it's called Baqarah it's called alien Ron. It's called NASA. Its purpose is that it's the lens by which you see the entire religion recreated multiple lenses and you meet people you'll find into conversations what lens they look at Islam from

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

what is the lens they've put on the disease from from

00:42:44--> 00:42:54

putting the Quran in this place does not mean you reject the rest of the team. What I argue is putting the Quran in this place you know what it does? It puts everything else in the proper perspective.

00:42:55--> 00:42:57

Because only Allah can put things in a proper perspective.

00:42:59--> 00:43:05

I want to study Hades badly I do. But when I studied the Buhari for instance as a student of Dean

00:43:06--> 00:43:11

How is it organized? The genius remember Holly Ramallah he organized it into

00:43:12--> 00:43:26

chapters right? organize the chapters he did the subject or conduct all these other subjects I'll collect these this subject I'll collect these, isn't it? It's a it's an ingenious curriculum, organized the source of the crown.

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

Whose curriculum is that?

00:43:32--> 00:43:34

organized these IOD

00:43:35--> 00:43:36

that's the last curriculum

00:43:37--> 00:43:42

shouldn't have I'm not saying don't study the body I'm saying you should there be a priority here?

00:43:43--> 00:43:50

Should there be a priority? Is this not what we call it like? No, I hear the prophets own words I saw them

00:43:51--> 00:43:57

that are under the habit it says now the day of judgment will be near when knowledge disappears.

00:43:58--> 00:44:07

And the Sahaba were shocked. knowledge will disappear okay if it had happened and we are a school of law, how knowledge disappear messenger of Allah, Quran Al Quran

00:44:11--> 00:44:15

we read Quran we make our kids read it our kids will make their kids read it.

00:44:16--> 00:44:18

The Prophet didn't say Quran will disappear What did the Prophet say?

00:44:20--> 00:44:24

He said knowledge will disappear. So how about when they heard knowledge? What do they think?

00:44:29--> 00:44:59

Because everything else will come in place. it'll fall into place. That's what the book does. It gives balance well well the enemies on you know, this is the lens that has to be restored when that when that relationship and that genuine relationship with the Quran is restored, you'll find Salawat will become better our love of the Prophet size will increase our understanding of the sooner we'll be inspired. You know, our our allegiance our loyalty to will be like nothing else. You know, like, people come to me and say you know you never talk about loving the prophets eyes on them on their guard.

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

I do a lot

00:45:03--> 00:45:05

you will not find a Nasheed better than Quran

00:45:06--> 00:45:13

you will not find a praise of one why messengers Isilon better than this world escalon you will not

00:45:14--> 00:45:16

you will not find a more spiritual texts

00:45:17--> 00:45:18

I would challenge you

00:45:19--> 00:45:23

I would anybody dare say otherwise I would I'd love to take them up on that

00:45:24--> 00:45:27

sheet What does this book what is this book missing?

00:45:28--> 00:45:38

What is it missing? You know what we've done? And I'm talking not to the general masses right now I'm talking to Islamic Studies students, we've taken the secondary text and put it in the primary position

00:45:41--> 00:45:52

study the primary studied exhaustively and then in its lens study the secondary have regard for tradition study the deme study in the way a law intended it and know the law why Luda.

00:45:54--> 00:46:30

I said all of this because of this phrase, Allah is guidance. That is their guidance. That's the thing to follow. Whether it's a home, but Allah deja coming in, and if you were to follow their whims, even after knowledge is come to you by Allah come in Allah human will he will no see you're not going to find any aid. Any any protective friend, any aid against Allah. If you fall, Allah will come after you. The Prophet has been told you let go of Quran and you see, I will come after you You won't find any aid to help you against me. The Prophet is being threatened sighs Allah

00:46:31--> 00:46:34

Rasulullah Hassan is being threatened. Don't let go of Quran

00:46:35--> 00:46:37

without any Tabata Allah, what are

00:46:39--> 00:46:47

you? And by the way, in the beginning, it was they did they want you to follow their religion. At the end, I was expecting a lot of say, and if you follow their religion,

00:46:48--> 00:47:00

then I'll do this. This Allah didn't say that, if you follow their whims. You know why he said that? Because their religion basically is just their what is their whims, he made an equation in this ayah between Mila and Anwar.

00:47:01--> 00:47:11

And we have to make sure that our religion is never a law, not the law, not like the law, and not like the alpha and the Salah. We have to make sure our religion remains pure of that.

00:47:12--> 00:47:19

This is the instruction given directly to us. My question becomes if Rasulullah Iseman is threatened with such harsh language

00:47:20--> 00:47:22

about not letting go of Quran?

00:47:24--> 00:47:25

Do you think this applies to cars?

00:47:26--> 00:47:31

Like people say people have the reverse thinking about no it's about the profit. So

00:47:34--> 00:47:39

unlike if Allah is not willing to spare even his messengers, I tell them when it comes to this priority, what do you think we stand?

00:47:41--> 00:48:00

Where do you think we stand? This is serious business. Then look what Allah told, you know, the Israelites in the previous passage, when they met when they were refusing to come to the Quran. They were they wanted to hold on to Torah, what did Allah say to him to them? And unternehmen Allah, Allah homolka samata la mala coming down in LA even when even

00:48:02--> 00:48:40

if you don't come to this Quran, you won't have Willie and that's what Allah said to the Jews. In the last passage. It's the same exact thing being said to who now those who have lost them. Even you hold on to this book for takuna Mr. Latham he knows he knows his stick by the by Telemark. This is some said, Do you know this I also, if you were to follow their whims, because a big challenge is coming. Dr. Pillai is about to be changed. And then you're going to be put to the test. Because they're going to challenge they're going to question you How can you change the Qibla like that? You know, how can you change the direction of prayer? How can this be the right religion? You're saying

00:48:40--> 00:48:44

the God of Israel is no longer interested in Israel?

00:48:45--> 00:49:05

You know, that's what the Bible calls God. You know that, right? We said, I've been I mean, they have rumbly, Israel, all over the Bible all over the Hebrew Bible. You know, you barely find God of the worlds or Lord of the Master of the Universe and things like that. You don't find that what you find is God of Israel, Lord of Israel. So when you don't, if you take emphasis away from Jerusalem,

00:49:07--> 00:49:33

like your entire view of God is just been shattered. They're gonna come after you, you know. And so Allah says, Don't worry about that. That's not going to be a big problem for you. You don't follow their way. Because even among them, you don't have to convince all of them. And Athena Athena, who will Kitab This is our last time for the day, those who we actually gave the book to. Yet Luna haka de la de those who gave the book to read it the way it deserves to be read.

00:49:35--> 00:50:00

Meaning there are among the Jews and the Christians, those who read even the Bible the way that it's supposed to be read. They read it sincerely, like they will believe in it. Meaning when they come on to hear Koran, it's gonna it's gonna click right away. It's gonna resonate, don't you worry. There are people that are, they love what they have in the little rod and the engine and they've been digging and digging and digging for the guidance and a lot guidance.

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

Their hearts to what is good in the Bible. And he keeps opening their hearts to it. And when they hear this Koran, they'll immediately believe in it.

00:50:08--> 00:50:44

Because they will hear what their hearts have been longing for. They'll read pages and pages of the Bible and find no guidance and there'll be something that hits them because that's still some some remains of what Allah revealed. And it gets to them in their fifth light hits them in their heart right there. And they hear Quran and they don't have to wait for pages and pages and pages. To find that one thing what happens every I just Whoa, whoa, whoa, well, we this is it. This is what I was looking for. Like I wanna be sure before we like to hospital and whoever doesn't believe in it, whoever just denies it. They're the ultimate losers anyway. Don't worry about them. That's not your

00:50:44--> 00:50:45

problem. You just recite the book.

00:50:47--> 00:50:57

Here they come in on Kitab una haka karate, this means that they follow they know they read it like it deserves to be read, read, where he acted on that whole movie by Jamie.

00:50:59--> 00:51:38

That this is a reading that really captures every every every fragment of their heart for your RFP, how about the love or euro fee how to love what the Amalfi mana, or how cool amroha he that everything is considered. they pronounce it properly. They contemplate in its meanings. They take care of what it forbids and what it commands. So Fianna thodi Rahim Allah said yet to be owner Hakata at Bara, he they follow it like it deserves to be followed. And he would interpret this if you'd Luna Hakata allottee he didn't interpret it as they read it like it deserves to be read. he interpreted it, they follow it like it deserves to be followed. That's important because the word

00:51:38--> 00:52:24

the lava in Arabic could also mean following. When kamari eva da the moon as it follows the sun, tala, same word. The reason reading is called devour is because your finger and your eye follows the text. So the act of reading is the act of actually following that kind of line by line reading. That's called tilava. Okay, so the idea of tilava here, they don't just read it, they actually follow it to some said that this ayah is about the hood, who had all actually not Yahoo, the abyssinians 40 of them have come after joughin the long run who had given his presentation at the Indian kings place, word spread about this prophet and 40 abyssinians showed up Christian showed up

those who read the book that they have, like it should be read sincerely, and they will find their way to Islam will not be they will believe in in the book that is that Allah has finally revealed and whoever among them still denies them.
