Give me one second
sure get started
like American slaughter cattle once again everyone and I'll hold on robotic to you all they lost pants I bless you bless the entire Muslim community and inshallah Tada as I get started. You know, it'd be remiss to not mention reminder to please make dua for beloved champ I'm the city for him, Allah Tana and his family and to to ask Allah subhanaw taala to uplift them and all of those good night island that are going through the hardship of losing someone beloved to them right now. I also want to remind everyone on that note, Hanlon, law so some of you keep up with Quran 30 for 30, which I know airs
pretty soon after this with the nighttime.
Just 12 shift with Al Assad,
where he talked about Sudha Yusuf and death is
in a whole lot tied up, as well as brother himolla in a tragic accident.
These are the types of things that really forge a another connection with the Quran that
otherwise Subhanallah you really cannot appreciate. And sometimes it's not your own experience, sometimes it's watching someone else, have a deep connection with a particular part of the plan because of something that's happened with them. And I want to start with that with the idea that I'm actually talking about, you know, these ads that are clearly speaking to the prophets and humans. Salatu was Salam May, Allah says Peace and blessings upon them all. And then our beloved Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam specifically, or clearly speaking to them at a particular time in their lives, and in a way that was immediately felt in terms of its realness. So it wasn't just the
revelation that was coming down to them. But it was also the realness of the experience, that it's one thing to read about Allah subhanaw taala will give you victory, when you're still in the trenches, than it is to read about it after a loss of hundreds Allah has given some of the victory, right, but that's where true tilicho comes in. That's where true trust in Allah subhanaw taala comes in. It's one thing to read about use of it, sometimes trust in Allah, after he's on the throne. But it's another thing when you start to use Amazon, the well. It's one thing to read about your apple IDs. And I'm Sutherland Jimmy and his beautiful patients after he is reunited with his son, but his
beautiful patients in the midst of the most devastating separation of his life. That's where it is beautiful. While it is tragic. And so what makes it beautiful is its deep connection to the
to the word of Allah subhanaw taala, the one who is receiving it directly. And the one who is reading it afterwards, yet still in communication with a loss of hundreds or through through the recitation of those words, and then through do so sometimes connecting to the immediacy of that experience really does allow you to have a greater connection to those verses. And if you yourself, don't have an experience that resonates with it, then learn from someone who does. And that's why I bring up chef Vidal. And so to use it, for example, learn from someone who has had a particular experience that connects to it, and maybe that will make it even more immediate and more real to
you. Now Subhanallah this verse is one that I'll mention just from a personal level. I found so much sweetness in this verse, this verse and certainly there's so much sweetness in it. And so much reassurance in this verse. Yeah, you're awesome. They'll come out Wednesday, don't you they come in Lubbock, we're in lamb Turfan some of the love Teresa Tahoe, while la we are SEMO Kameena NAS in Allahu Allah del Carmen caffeine, O Messenger of Allah. So this is where 67 O Messenger of Allah convey everything that has been revealed to you from your Lord Bell live mas, when ZTE they come in robic everything the entire package, make sure that you convey it. And if you don't do so, from our
beloved Teresa data, then you have not actually fulfilled your mission, your message? Well, lo Yasim will come in and ask and Allah will certainly protect you from the people. It's Pamela there's so much
work wisdom in this so many times that I can personally reflect on this to say that my Dara was a source of protection, that doing something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala that on surface level looked like it would actually be a source of harm actually ended up being a source of benefit. And this could be the smallest experience. This could be, you know, praying in an airport. I actually had a recent experience of Hannah law where I was praying in an airport and I know that this is probably more difficult for sisters and brothers at times. And you know, at the end of the day, I mean, I'm in the airport half of my life. So I'm praying in the airport, and
this gate a
gem is coming around and I'm thinking to myself, this gate agent this this experience has happened like less than two months ago right away this gate agent is going to call security and I'm gonna have to go through that whole mess because I don't usually even make make it a point to look for the chapel. I just pray next to them to gate and next thing I know this Hanalei just like a commercial the gate agent actually starts praying Jamar with me I'm thinking to myself Subhanallah like in my mind when I felt sort of the commotion and like, movement around and curse I'm shifting on the desk, I'm thinking to myself, Okay Bismillah I will maintain my you know, I'm just gonna maintain my
salah. I'm gonna keep going with this next thing I know this person is bringing him out with me. Something as simple as that.
When you when you give that or when you speak up about your Deen in certain contexts, and you think that maybe it's going to
cost you some sort of,
but it actually doesn't cause you any harm, rather a loss panela to Allah gives you
A great gift out of it and you say, wow, you know, subhanAllah, I have nothing to be afraid of. That could be in a career context that could be in a social context. But just that idea. Now, I want to offer a little bit of a disclaimer here. We have the story of Ibrahim Ali salaam, who was thrown into a fire because of his doubt, right, we have the stories of prophets that were killed because of their data. However, what you have to understand with those types of situations and how it connects to this particular ayah, and we'll talk about some of the context that is there. Allah Subhana Allah to add a protected their mission, he protected their message, and Allah Subhana Allah to add a
protected their rank.
So you have to actually think about this in terms of what the immediate intention is, as well as what the result was afterwards. So after Ibrahima Islam was thrown into that fire, Allah azza wa jal did, of course, protect him from the people from their plot, but the humiliation was there, the hardship The difficulty was there on the path of Dawa and it took some time, but at the end of the day, Allah azza wa jal gave Ibrahima Islam far more than that small group of people that he was calling to and cannot. So that's one sort of the end of the story, right is just as significant to the beginning of the story as the beginning itself. And of course, in terms of the individual paths
of these prophets, every single prophet of Allah has, there are Esma in some way, their protection from the people in some way, at the very least, and that their message persists. And even if that's just through the Prophet salallahu Salam, and their rank is preserved. So this doesn't necessarily mean that you're not going to experience something along the way. But you'll often find that Allah subhanaw taala as a direct result of you sticking to your principles sticking to your data, will Allah azza wa jal will open doors for you that you did not even know existed and Allah subhanaw taala will protect you from harm that you felt was inevitable. It happens in many different points
in our lives, if we are actually paying attention. This is similar to the either in amount mentioned similar to the idea of Romania, Turkey, La Jolla, who Maharajah, we are Zukerman Hayford, I tested Whoever fears Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will
make our way out further.
And Allah subhanaw taala will provide for them from places that they never expected. Now, this example might inshallah try to help you understand this a little bit more. If you think about a person who gives up a sin, the agenda homophobia, Allah makes a way out for them. Does that mean that if I have a hat on business, and I give up my hat on money, that I'm immediately going to have, you know, a significant bump in my halal income. And I'm not going to feel the pinch of that sacrifice? Not necessarily, sometimes that is actually the case. But not necessarily, right. It's not that alright, I give up my if I own a store, a convenience store that sells this much alcohol,
and it accounts for this percentage of my sales and I stopped selling alcohol that I'm immediately going to find that the gas itself or whatever else I'm selling is going to make up for that. That doesn't always happen, right? But Allah will make a way out for you. alum promises you that he doesn't tell you where that layout is going to be, or how that layout is going to be or when that way out is going to happen. But at the same time, he tells you that it will happen and the other Zukerman hatred is that Allah will provide for them in ways that they did not even calculate. So it might be in a different part of your life, that that risk comes, that does sustenance actually comes
and that sustenance is not always just wealth. Alright, now let's go back to the the idea that we're talking about and sort of denied. You might take a principled stance or give down on a situation or manifester is not going to public setting in a way that immediately in that particular circumstance is going to have some sort of a detrimental effect. But you're not seeing all the other color in the background of what Allah subhanaw taala is opening up for you as a result of that. So you're not just trusting Allah with the immediate situation. You're trusting Allah with his entire plan. And that is something that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam does beautifully throughout his entire
career as a prophet right throughout his entire the Salah, that the prophets of Allah Allah and he was salam does not put timings on Allah subhana Hutan and when you think of the prophets of Allah, it was sudden I'm saying that Allah azza wa jal answers the dua of a person so long as they are not hasty so long as they don't say they're out to the out to fellow Minister Jubilee that I made you may
and I was not answered. You think about that for a moment. You know, the profit slice and I'm had more trust in Allah's timing than anybody
else. When he was in her day via the prophets I some trusted Alas, timing more than anyone else. And when he was in the most desperate moments of thought if the prophets like some trusted Allah subhanaw taala His timing. So he manifests this hadith Salallahu Salam as he manifests all of his teachings, in the most beautiful of ways and the most perfect of ways sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and what I love about this verses that is talking about his Dawa first Salallahu Salam. So let's unpack this a bit in sha Allah to Allah because this verse, what I love about this verses, but you'll find that the narrations span in terms of its application from the very beginning of his
visa, all the way to the very end to his last public address in Mecca, from his, you know, initial encounters that were encounters in Mecca. So the scholars mentioned a few different applications about of this verse number one, some of the scholars mentioned that this is in regards to what Sophie Neff Sica, Mullah of the watershed nurse Willa happens Asha that this is perhaps referring to what it should all be a lot of data and her mentions of the marriage of Zainab bint Daschle a lot of Taliban had to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, I'm going to preface this by saying that please go to the first and watch the lecture about xenophobia law of Thailand, which was very
recent because there's there are just so many misconceptions. There are those that suggest what took the fina fsic You hide in yourself as in a desire for Zenodo the longtown Anna and it's very clear that what it's actually speaking about is that Allah had given the prophets lie some the command to proceed with that divorce of Zaid and Xena and then to proceed with his Necaxa of Allah who it was salam to Zane up Millis Krantz, I'd be pleased with all of his family and companions. So the reason why I bring this up here and the reason why some of them will firstly, don't mention this, is they say that the prophets of Allah who I sent them here was, you know, obviously conveying the message
as it was coming down to him.
And he had been given the knowledge from ALLAH subhanaw taala that this was going to happen.
Now, when the Prophet sighs I was thinking about repercussions. And this is very important. The prophets I send them is not thinking about repercussions from the sense of the personal grief that it would cause to him. He's thinking about the implications to his data. So on the profit side, for example, and we know this and the admonishing of Abba Seletar when Allah
that Allah azza wa jal says to him that you found towards a bit on Maktoum or the a lot of data and who was a blind companion can't see this frowning anyway. And the Prophet Tyson was trying to speak to some of the noble
bulls and the elite of race to try to get them on board. The prophesy son was not trying to speak to the elites of Quraysh, because he felt like, if he didn't do that, or he felt like by doing that, he would get some sort of elite privilege. He did that because he thought it was most beneficial to the data, right, that it was most important to the data, that he has those people on board. And so when I've loved electone, while the alarm comes to the profit slice, I'm interrupting that conversation and he represents exactly what Quraysh did not like, at that point, that is where you start to see the importance of, you know, look, Allah subhanaw taala is going to make this doubt what happened.
Right? So Abba and javelin AMA, one night UDK Allah, Allah Who?
What is it that is going to stop you? I'm trying to think about the way to paraphrase, I don't have to go through the whole Surah
You know, what is it that that stops you from thinking that his purification is going to be any less significant than the purification of those people? You know, so I'm gonna let the Sterna so those people that are feeling a sense of entitlement, a sense of power and privilege and are not interested in this message, don't pay attention to them, because you think that there's something that they uniquely possess, and don't turn away from abdominal matomo Villalta annual because you think that he is in that situation less valuable to the data. So, the prophets, I was thinking about implications of data. So, this is important, because some of the scholars are mentioning this, you
know, to say, that, look, at the end of the day,
you know, you have to do what you have to do, and Allah subhanaw taala will do his part, and that protection for you will come and that protection for the message will come as well. So the Prophet slicin does not have to worry about the implications to his message when he does so. So that's one thing that the scholars mentioned.
Another thing that the scholars mentioned, is when the prophets like Selim used to go out in Mecca, and people were, you know, his loved ones from bento Hashem, particularly Abel. Tada
Were very diligent and providing protection to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So, I will thought it would not let the Prophet sites and move around without sending someone with him without sending protection for him. And this idea comes down to the prophets I saw them and the prophets I send them says, yeah, in the law, there are so many law hydrator li elemental guys, like I don't need these people. Oh my uncle Allah Subhana Allah has guaranteed me his protection and another narration the prophets lie Selim said to the people that you announced in Saudi for someone in Lahore, Azerbaijan, that oh people you can leave me alone contract has guaranteed me his protection, nother narration in
a lot of the outside even on genuine ends, that Verily Allah subhanaw taala has granted me amnesty, protection through both the jinn and the ends are from both jinn and any type of harm that's going to come to me from any body else. Subhanallah you have this, this sudden revelation now whether and this is a discussion amongst them whether this idea came down later on Willow Jana, Similkameen, and NAS but the knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala will protect you from the people guarantees the profit slice on that protection
comes down at the same time or not. That's debatable meaning it could be the Eliza Dell gave the profit slice on that promise early on Willa Yasim will come in and us Allah will certainly protect you from the people. And then the idea came down later which which only conveys
what Allah azza wa jal had already informed the messenger Salallahu Salam or it comes down at the same time. The point is, there is a connection between your Rasul belives now when ZTE they come in Lubbock, O Messenger of Allah, give your Dawa convey everything that's been revealed to you from your Lord. And if you do not do so, then you have not delivered the message and Allah will certainly protect you from the people. Now, I'll say a few more things about this insha Allah to add to sort of wrap it all up and why it becomes immediately relevant to us you read about the prophets lie Selim, in a lot of filled in the cave of thought with our workers to decode the longtime animal and
how Allah is divinely protects the messenger SallAllahu sallam, he still takes his precautions in the headsman. You read about how Allah azza wa jal miraculously protected the prophets I send them in her day via or rather in the hunt up, right, but they still built a hunter, you read about how Allah s parents are protected the profit slice of them in better but they still thought and beverage. Right? There are two things that are very important to mention here. Number one, the importance of you to take your precautions in all of these situations. Number two, that sometimes Allah subhanaw taala will send you or will show you things to comfort you to let you know that he is
indeed on your side and that your data and your EBA is indeed a source of protection. So in the Battle of bended Allah as Oded could have, right? Simply done everything that he did without the angels. Right? This is our Lord, the one who says couldn't fair coin be and it is. He certainly could have dispersed the armies without any sending of the angels. But when the angels come down, it's meant to also assure and affirm the prophets lie Selim and his companions that Allah has protection is with them. Okay, when the prophets lie, some is in the cave. Certainly, you know, the bird or the spider web with those narrations about the protection happening outside of the cave of
Vodafone, certainly Allah azza wa jal could have simply blinded the machine, but also, let's have Rebecca or the allow anvil, and the prophets lie Selim, who had the full European and Allah subhanaw taala. In those moments, he's the one who St. vocable the Allah and Allah has an in Allah Marina, do
not worry, Allah is with us don't grieve Allah
is with us. There's something to them seeing that as well.
And so when these situations arise in our lives, where we get put in a situation where we have to make a choice between our data between our EBA between our principles, and between sin, and between all sorts of forms of disobedience that seem more convenient and less harmful. Let's remember that sometimes Allah subhanaw taala will show us things that are immediately comprehensible to us, of his other of how he's protecting us, of how he's opening another door for us that we didn't know exists. But at the same time, we trust Allah's father, whether we can see it or not, because we believe in Him whether we can see him or not. So that's where the connection to toe hate comes. That's where
the connection to that monotheism comes to hate and so what good are inseparable concepts that belief in Allah subhanaw taala even though you can't see him, that belief in his divine planning, even though you can't see it, and so, do your Dawa worship Allah subhanaw taala
stayed the course. While you're a single come in and ask Allah azza wa jal is perfect restoration is perfect reparation has perfect reckoning, right will bring it all back together. And this was most true for our beloved Prophet salallahu Salam, and how he was able to always see that happen in his own life slipped by Saddam and we can now marvel at it 1400 years later, and say Alhamdulillah
All praises be the one who protected our beloved ones ally Salim in this particular situation, and connect ourselves to Allah, because we're calling upon the same Lord who saved the boy he mighty set up, rescued us the party has set up will comforted Jaco riding solo, and who protected our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And with that in Charlottetown, I'll go and I'll pass it back to sister have some second Wilfredo.
They've had a lot is that Kamala Harris, Chef Omar, I think that's such a inspiring like heart softening lifting message. She's not gonna care for your contribution to it today this year has rolled on 360 and for everything that you've done with us in the past with a Maghrib. I know you mentioned at the beginning, that it's kind of like a bittersweet year, obviously, it's the first year that we're spending without our beloved founder, Sheikh Mohammed envelope, but 100 of the community continues to grow, even after his passing it this is the largest year that we've ever had for Ramadan. 360. And I'm sure through looking through all the other, you know, organizations that
were inspired by his efforts, the dollar continues to grow. And I can imagine in sha Allah when it comes to the Day of Judgment, the mountains that will be behind him, and you're one of the sources of these mountains may like set from you and from us me on a banana. I mean,
I do see a question. A quick question in the chat. I don't know if we have time to take just one question.
Before we close so I saw someone's asking how can you tell if it's from a lot or a trick? Shavon which may seem the right thing to do, but it isn't, we have so many differences of opinions within the Dawa?
Well, I think, look,
there's the collective wisdom of people of the hour and, you know, people that you
trust, have a relationship with Allah subhanaw taala and are trying to diagnose the situation as they see and this was the case even amongst the companions of the Prophet sighs that if the love exists, I think the way you protect yourself is by not following the easiest opinion of everybody. But by sticking to you know, a collective, certainly moms or scholars, even if it's your local email, through it all in sha Allah, Allah when you come across these things that way, you suspend your own knifes in that process and making that decision.
Inshallah times eautiful which cycle affair and a final question shift I know where we we've just passed the halfway point of Ramadan so this is kind of people sometimes will just wait it out until the last 10 nights to get into motion and to get kind of the the last bit of reward out of the month. What do you suggest or any recommendations any pieces of advice for those who are just hitting the 16th day and they haven't gotten that as much out of the month as they had wanted to and they just need that extra little?
Yeah, I'd say recast your goals, right because I know many people are going to rightfully point to the consistency element here if you can be consistent, but recast your goals if you need to.
So that you don't spend the last night beating yourself up about what could have been the entire month but instead exerting yourself in sha Allah Tala towards maybe something that's a little bit more reasonable, but at the same time provides that avenue of connection to a mosque or whatever that you're seeking.
Which is a great reminder, inshallah I will let you go shift just before we close off I know there's you got a lot going on in sha Allah we'll see you very soon either through a Ramadan webinar or through all the other efforts that we do with a mugger by no mashallah I think you have an onsite class coming very soon. You've been very busy with a lot of online
training Okay, well, that's we'll add that to the die list inshallah for us to get a new amazing l night and seminar with you. Just like malaria. Thank you to those who joined us on HANA for the 60 day programming Inshallah, we'll transition over to her and reflect with him Saturday. Saudi Council once again everyone and everyone and yes, for those who are wondering, yes, that was a recording I let me just explain to me one second. First of all, it does not qualify for the kind messages is that stir? Solange mashallah, in the chat. I hope that you found it beneficial. Well, here's the here's the it's funny just figuring it out.
Chef Omar actually just live couldn't make it for the time, the lifetime unfortunately for today, and he was so stressed. He was so anxious. It wasn't smooth. He was so anxious about trying to give as much of a live experience as possible. I wasn't even allowed to tell anybody that it was a recording until the I was like the everyone's gonna figure it out. Like guys, I can wear the same hijab everyone's gonna figure it out. But I'm Michelle and may Allah reward him. He was like, I'm going to take him. He's like, do an intro do an outro I was like, *, we're gonna do our best but
He really wanted to be here with you guys and he sent his his love and he was excited about it this is the only time the first time he hasn't been able to be live with Ramadan 360 But he was so prepared so ready like background is check this now that so he is mashallah very considerate and we did our best I just I'm not an Oscar winning actress unfortunately. So just ACULA here I hope that you find it beneficial mashallah, there's so many gems to come out of that session I can't wait to reflect on that with besides me, is there anything I saw mashallah, some of the chats I tried to try not to move my cursor so much because I think it was distracting you guys on screen? Is there any
gems anything that someone can share that you that really hit you in that talk? Let us know here in the chat? Yes.
Unfortunately, that's a weakness of mine. Solange but yes mashallah she had Omer
Yes, it wasn't it wasn't super intentional. I was like guys I'm gonna I'm gonna say it at the end at the very least so that people know and for those on on Facebook and YouTube you guys probably caught on even faster but yes, masha Allah has his character shines through in his speech and his and his style. Mashallah, may Allah accept from him.
And yes, subhanAllah that topic is so, so, so timely, I'm very excited that we get a chance to reflect on this. And it's really, really happy about this setup for Milan 360, where we have the opportunity to go back to the same idea for those who didn't get to catch it. That was read on my divers number 67. Thank you for those who dropped into the chat. And yes, he's where he's a great friend of the immigrant family. He's an amazing instructor with us. I don't know if any of you have had a chance to take a class with him recently. He's consistently teaching classes with us for a Maghrib online and inshallah working on some new projects in sha Allah. That's okay, so in this, I'm
looking forward to scrolling back in the chat and catching some of the gems and for those who did, please make sure that you share them on telegram as well for those who wrote them here. But I've found that in that we have some extra time now today, for our honor flag session. So I noticed that Samia, you've been here listening, I hope that you've benefited, as well in sha Allah, and whenever you're ready, inshallah we can jump in. I do want to give another shout out before we transition over to our amazing friends at H H. rd, in the US at Islamic Relief in Canada and ads forgotten woman in the UK, and I should or mentioned in the very beginning of his appeal, is that Subhanallah
you know, he wanted to also encourage us to donate how Maghrib Allah Maga was
Ramadan campaign because a lot of this work a lot of this, what you do and how you support us now comes out in all efforts that we're able to do throughout the year at Hampton Inn, and a lot of where we're at right now, this community, the size of it that good that we've been able to facilitate through it, all the classes that we've had some of the programming that he's taking care of it hands it into, honestly, it's a lot harder post COVID, especially for those of you ever attended an onsite experience with a Maghrib. We struggled consistently with trying to find venues trying to be, you know, budget conscious, and hello Maghrib hasn't really, you know, raised our

I see that you're with us and him that into so for the first time ever we have we're not only are we on time, but we're early at hand the *er and reflect which is amazing. I can't wait to take advantage of this extra time. How are you doing as Santa Monica and what I was lucky to get to work on was sent out to LA Hilbre to I'm so glad I was here.
Really 100 in LA. Yeah. Did you catch that from the very beginning of setup? Not from the beginning, but most of it and handle and handle and learn from that. Great to hear. So let's get the reflection started this Anila I think this week has felt super long from last week. So this week. I don't know what it was that happened. I think there's a burqa in time but it's been super long. So we've missed you and we're excited to jump into
let's begin AsSalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh everyone. Our otter bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.
It was Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Hill Karim rubbish. Rahi Saudi were silly Emery. What up data melissani of coho coli Allahumma Nickleby was a deadly Sunni was roots of him with a Kolbe Armenia rebel army.
Alright, so tonight either verse number 67. Actually, if you have almost half with you, I would like you to open up the page on which this idea is
verse number 67 of Sula to man either so once you have it open on that page, then inshallah give me a thumbs up or something so I know that we can begin
Okay, very good. And those of you who don't have the most half, you can open verse number 65 onwards because the page begins from verse number 65.
Okay, Allah subhanaw taala tells us in verse number 65, about the people of the book. All right, well, an LL Kitabi. Amma know what the call like a foreigner on him say he at him will add Hala home genetic Noreen. That if only the People of the Scripture had believed and feared Allah, then we would have removed from them their sins and we would have admitted them into gardens of pleasure meaning into paradise. Meaning if they had believed and feared Allah, then they would receive a lot of good from Allah forgiveness and also entry into paradise. Then Allah subhanaw taala says, well, unknown accom with a lotta will in G one our own Zilla la him rubbing him and if they had
established the toll road, and in NBN G and whatever that was sent down to them from their Lord, let acha lumen Fofi woman daddy Oh, Julian, they would have eaten meaning they would have received blessings from Allah which they would now consume, from where blessings coming to them from above them and also from beneath their feet. In it, this is how much Allah subhanaw taala would bless and reward them even in this world.
When if they established the Torah and the Injeel if they follow the law that Allah subhanaw taala gave them if they observed the book that Allah subhanaw taala gave them and then Allah says men whom OMA to mock the Seder. Among them is a community that is moderate worker feel a minimum set a Maryam alone, but majority of them evil is what they do. So first, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned something about the people of the book. And the main message over here is that the people of the book did not observe the book that was given to them. Right? They did not care for, for the wrath for injeel for what Allah subhanaw taala revealed to them and as a result, they're the ones who missed out. Right?
Then Allah subhanaw taala tells us messenger that Yeah, you heard rasuluh Bella who now owns the La la cama tropic that all messenger convey whatever has been revealed to you from your Lord. And if you do not do so, then you are not conveying the message of Allah and Allah will protect you from people and Allah does not guide the wrongdoer the people who disbelieve right well in Allah Allah they'll call will care feeding now tell me something
how is what is mentioned in this is relevant to what was mentioned about the people of the book and the people of the book did not you know observe the book they did not follow the law and as a result they missed out then Allah subhanaw taala tells us messenger you convey whatever has been revealed to you. What's the connection over here? Anybody would like to raise your hand and
okay, they changed the original message all right.
People of the Book did not follow everything they they would pick and choose they missed out on the protection Hmm Good observation good. Anything else okay a FIFA I see that you have raised your hand. Yes. So while a coma medulla he broke it off. With a liberal katsu song we were salam ala Nabina. Ahmed.
There's a connection between the previous Amma that as an ummah, we could fall into the same into those same long into the same sins. And that as a as an ummah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam is to be different from that and to believe and fear Allah.
Very, very good observation about colo thekey. So the problem with the people of the book with Al Kitab was made
li what they would not only any not follow the book themselves, they would also hide what Allah subhanaw taala revealed. All right, they would hide it from their own people. And also at the time of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, what would they do? They would criticize the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam for the message that he was conveying. Right? So what does Allah subhanaw taala tell His Messenger, that you do not fear them and you convey the message, all right, without fear of what people say. And when Allah subhanaw taala tells his messenger something in the Quran, yes, there are some things that are specifically for him, but there's definitely a lesson that we
can take from that for ourselves. And that message is that we don't like or FIFA pointed out that we, that the people of the book, and he they went a certain path of, you know, not living the book, alright, and not passing on the book. And so we have to do something different. We have to do what our Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam did which is to observe the book ourselves and also to pass it on.
All right, now I want you to notice something Allah subhanaw taala is addressing his messenger, He says, Yeah, uh, you have Rasul
or messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he tells him Bezaleel mouth on Zillow, la cama rabbit convey whatever has been revealed to you from your Lord. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is addressed in the Quran in a number of ways. Okay, he's addressed in the Quran as yet a un newbie. All right, all Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
there is another place where he is addressed based on on the situation that he was in so Yeah, are you home with death fit? Right? Are you who is wrapped up yet a U haul Muslim mill? Right, wrapped up in a blanket or wrapped up in his clothes. But here Allah subhanaw taala says Yeah, you heard was sold.
Why is the word Rasul mentioned over here? What's the connection between the word Rasul and what is mentioned afterwards? What do you think?
Okay, Miraj, go ahead.
solomani. And so I think that you want to do like primary, you know, job offer school is to actually share and preach the message of Allah subhanho wa taala. without actually having even a single verse may in fact, a word, a letter. So probably Allah is kind of reminding that you are, I mean, a lot of time but this time, you're kind of fursuits of being our soul. You have to, you know, preach and share what has been revealed to you, you know, without doing anything, I mean, without hiding in it. Yeah, exactly. So, yeah, you heard Rasul, Rasul is who Rasool is the one who is tasked with the responsibility to convey a reseller, reseller is a message All right, so what is the responsibility
of a Rasul to convey the message? Right, and to convey not half the message, but all of the message, right? Like, for example, if you appoint someone, like maybe your sibling as you know, as someone to convey your message to your parents, all right, what is the job of your siblings to go and convince your parents? No, to go and give half the message? No, the job of your sibling is to convey just the message all of it and that's it. Right? So yeah, are you are Rasool or messenger This is a reminder of the fact that your responsibility is to convey what else can we take from this, so convey the message in its entirety as it is.
Alright, what else?
What else does it tell us about the responsibility of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam
ownership, okay, and he take this matter very seriously. All right. Convey and let the people act upon. Can you be a bit more specific about what you're saying?
Fear Allah not the people are right.
Public Dawa. Okay, convey but not convinced, okay. See, the thing is,
the responsibility of the messenger is to just convey, okay, the Rasul is not responsible for how people respond to the message.
Okay, that's not the concern or the responsibility of them.
messenger. The only responsibility of the messenger is to convey the message Hello, us. So yeah, you heard resole you do your job, which is to convey and don't worry about how people respond. That's not something that you're responsible for. In numerological below, where Elena hisab on you is the duty to convey. And we will call people to account. So you don't have to force them you don't have to, you know, ensure that they accept the guidance. No, your job is just to convey. And we should also remember that, you know, sometimes there are things that Subhanallah we tell
people to do, like we will advise them all right, but then we insist that they accept our advice. Right, we insist that they accept what you know, the the piece of information that we're sharing with them, or the recipe that we're sharing with them, or the the medicine that we're telling them about or the treatment plan that you know, we we have a good experience with. Your job is just to convey to share and call us leave people to decide what they want to do. Excellent ILA Sara Lekha who their home with a keen Allah Yeah, they may a shot. Right. It is not your responsibility to guide people it is Allah who guides whomever He wills. Right. So don't don't force don't argue don't
insist, don't compel. Don't, you know, negotiate? And things like that? Just convey Bolivia on Zillow Lake. Somebody had raised their hand. Did you want to say something different?
When you can show it was I saw the hand as well. Yeah.
Up there we go. Go ahead.
Um, no, I mean, you pretty much said what I was gonna say it's just about the words being used, as communicated, not
And what he didn't have to convince? Yeah, and what can we
ourselves, when we are, for example, telling our children to do something? Or are we younger sibling to do something, and they are very comfortable doing things the way they want? What's our job over there?
Yeah, and you find that also when you have
children, older children, is you have to tell them, and you remind them, sometimes you have to leave it for them to make their decisions. And you say to them, Look, you're older now. I've you know, I've taught you as much as I can. Now it's up to you to Exactly, exactly, just do exactly once they're older than you just tell them, remind them and that's it, leave it to them. All right, and very good idea that you've quoted here. phala Kobelco NAFSA Carla 30 Ilam you may know behavioral Hadith assefa that perhaps you would kill yourself out of, you know, grief, because they're not believing
in this speech, right in the Quran. Meaning do not kill yourself by by grieving excessively. You don't have to worry so much over them because your job is just to convey.
Then Allah subhanaw taala says, so Allah, Allah subhanaw taala says here that yeah, you're a solo ballyhoo mount onesy la la cama. robic okay. Now what is it that was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam by Lil convey? Man own Zilla la cama rabbinic what was sent down to you from your Lord. So what is it that was sent down to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from Allah? It was a Quran so how come the any it hasn't been said that conveyed the Quran
conveyed the book.
what does the description what what has been sent down to you from your Lord? Tell us about the revelation that was given to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sunnah.
Okay, however much was revealed okay.
Okay, the message any what does the message include?
So I'm Vikasa. So maybe because the Quran was a reaffirmation of the message that was sent earlier in the earlier you know, Revelations. So there was a continuation of the story the last time
Last momentarily saying over here review that convey whatever has been sent down to you. So how come it has not been said that conveyed the Quran? What does that tell us about what was revealed on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam somebody wrote in the chat that it was Quran and Sunnah. Excellent. You see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not just given the Quran.
Okay, he was given the Sunnah also the source of sunnah, the practice, the way in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam worshipped Allah. The source of that is also revelation. And this is one of the ayat that actually prove the fact that the Prophet sallallahu sallam was given the Quran and something else with it. In fact, he himself said sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam that Allah in the OT to Quran Rahmatullah who Mara who? That I was given the Quran, and something like it. All right. And we see that
any there are so many things that this is well known so many things that are lost, Panthera mentions in the Quran, like for instance, you know, to pray to to do to do to give the cat and things like that and the details are not all given in the Quran. The details are where they're found in the practice of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam. So what did the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam do? Did he just decide on his own as to how to pray salah? Did he just decide on his own as to you know, how to practice the commands that Allah subhanaw taala was giving? No, excellent Iona young to Cornell, however, he does not speak from desire in Hua Illa when you have it is only revelation that
is revealed. Right? So whatever the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam did whatever that he even things that he forbade on himself Subhanallah right, he was corrected over there, right because he was not allowed to make any changes to the law of Allah by himself. So below, met on Zillow, Yreka middle Robbie convey whatever, meaning all of the teachings whether they are recited where he met Lou, or they're not recited where he later Mutlu, so revelation that is recited, which is the Quran and revelation that is not recited which is the Sunnah, so convey all of that Alright, so believe mountain de la la come the rugby
another very good iron Masha Allah that is very relevant to what we're talking about. That the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his role was to recite to the people the verses of Allah, right? Well use a key comb and purify you where you are limo. colicky, terrible. Well, Hikmah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would teach people the book and the Wisdom. So he would teach people the book, right? You will teach them the Quran. But what is this hikma? What is this wisdom? Right? This is the Sunnah and what was the source of that? That was also revelation. Right? So believe mountains you literally can the rabbit then Allah Subhana Allah says what a lambda file
farmer Bulaga desire data and if you do not do that, do what if you do not do what
what a lambda file? If you do not do, do not do what? What's the answer to that? convey the full message Exactly? firmer below 30 salata then you are not conveying his message. Question, How is leaving some things out? Not conveying the message?
How is it that if the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam were to leave a few things out? Then he would not be conveying the message? How?
Like, isn't 90% Better than zero? Is a 95% Better than zero?
Yeah, because the money comes through first of all, so let's say ibis, Allah Tala is very good. I, you know, it talks about the Prophet how he turned away from a blind man. And it talks about you know, that the Prophet did not do something smart in that sense. So, let's the Prophet did not reveal that I had done. It would mean that, you know, even like, the Prophet did something like a mistake like that. I don't want to call it a mistake, but like, he turned his II frown like, you know, so I guess like he would pick and choose, you know, like, Oh, this is gonna make me look bad. I don't want to reveal that. So no, he did reveal it to show us that, you know, it's not nice to be
mean to other people to front up, you know, like, not not being mean. But you know what I'm saying like, yeah, so it shows that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam conveyed everything, right? Yes. Is that what you're saying? Yes, yes, sir.
other? Yeah. So my question is that Allah subhanaw taala is saying that if you do not convey everything that you're, then you're not conveying his message.
So how is it that if a person does not convey everything, then they're not conveying the message? How?
Yeah, salam alaikum, I think it would be like the previous People of the Book who lost because they had a lot of the message, they missed the main message, which is the heat. That's an example, among other things that they lost, that are part of the message. Exactly. Any, if you omit even one thing, or a few things, then then people will be missing out on a lot, every single thing that a las Panatela has sent down matters. So the question then is that if the prophet for example, if he were to convey 95%, why does Allah subhanaw taala say that, that for MALBA? Look, the reason you're not conveying his message?
Sorry, I'm hungry, that I want to hit the light worker to
This would mean that a last message in its entirety, is a last message is Allah speech. So this Quran, as we know, is the speech of Allah. So this hiding of things would alter it, and it would not be his message. Exactly, exactly. The thing is that if a message is not conveyed fully, then it's not the right message.
Right? An incomplete message is a wrong message. Right? Think about it. If you were to send a message to someone,
please come by 530
If you are ready,
right, please come by 530 If you are ready, and they only hear the first part of the message, please come by 530
Right. So what are they going to do? Even though they're not ready, they come by 530. So they come and they're not ready and nothing's done. So
what's that going to do? Is that going to help? No, it's not going to help. Right? It gives the wrong message. Exactly an incomplete message is the wrong message. And think about it any there's so many
matters related to a P the related to our beliefs related to fic that we derived sometimes from just one letter, one word of the Quran literally, or the way that a word is recited with a Kustra or Allama Subhan Allah ne just the way that it's recited okay. The halacha even can determine the interpretation and based on that interpretation, you derive different laws, you you derive different lessons. So if a word is left out, if a sentence is left out, or right if even a Hellcat is left out, then the message is not complete. And if the message is not complete, in fact, it could be you know, wrong. So the wrong message is is being conveyed. So what a lambda file for my bellota resign
I just missed a whole bunch of comments I'm so sorry. I don't know why my chatbot stuck in one place and now there's like 40 messages that I just missed out on.
Okay, you don't get to choose which part to convey and what to delete Exactly. Any if you are altering the message if you're deciding what to convey and what not to convey, you're basically changing it and this shows us that when we're given when we when we are given a message to convey them, we would then we should convey exactly as it is. Right. Don't change it up.
It would mean that it would not be Allah's message exactly.
Okay, so I see that a lot of the comments are about this Masha Allah, that you got it. So now and also,
Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Quran
about the people of the book that EFA taught me no no be bothered Kitabi with the Quran and be baarle Do you believe in part of the book and disbelieve in part, any not believing in all of the book? Okay, this is like not believing in the book at all. Okay,
So you have to believe in the whole scripture. When it comes to believing in the messengers, you have to believe in all of the messengers, you don't get to pick, you don't get to choose. Right? When it comes to believing in the angels, you believe in all of the angels when it comes to believing in the different pillars of Eman, you have to believe in all of them, you don't get to choose. So just like that, when it comes to the message of Allah, you have to convey it. All right, you don't get to pick and choose. Now, this doesn't mean that you know a person must not use good,
common sense in order to determine what to convey at what time and it doesn't mean that you have to convey everything all at once. No, the word balloon is interesting. But lil Bella you believe who to believe this form of verb. It shows us that the action is being done gradually. Okay in stages. So Bella Houma on Zillow Lake Yes, conveyed fully, but conveyed gradually. Right? And this is necessary. You don't have to water down the truth. No, you shouldn't. You don't leave anything out. But also you don't overwhelm people. You don't give them more than what they're able to process what they're able to digest. Right. So you give it gradually, slowly and gradually you build their
capacity. And then you give them more you build their capacity and you give them more step by step.
And how well did the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam convey? How much did he convey
everything right, which is why in the largest gathering,
of of Hajj, right, the prophets of Allah who are Islam as the companions that Allah Allah help a lot have I conveyed and they said, Yes, the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, ask them three times have I conveyed and they said yes. And then he said along which had Oh Allah, you bear witness that I have conveyed, that he fulfilled his responsibility. Now, there is an ayah in the beginning of the Surah, the same Surah Surah, toma Ada, that proves to us that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam did in fact convey everything. I want you to look at the beginning of certain metadata and tell me which that is.
What is that verse that tells us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did convey he he conveyed 100% Everything that was given to him
in the beginning of the surah
Batticaloa peculiar hum le OMA, commence Tula Khun Dena calm, what atman to rla come near Mati.
Right, I remember three, that today I have completed your religion for you and perfect, I have, and I have perfected my favor upon you. Any the revelation of Islam is is complete. So how is it complete? If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had not conveyed everything, it was complete, because the Prophet sallallahu Aurizon conveyed everything. Right? Exactly like on the visa for sharing the translation today I have perfected your faith for you completed my favor upon you, and chosen Islam as your way. So what So what is the completion of the favor of Allah? It is the completion of the revelation of Islam.
All right, so that is an evidence that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam conveyed everything. Then Allah Subhana Allah says wala who Yara slim will come in and nurse and Allah will protect you from the people.
Now, some people when they when they read an ayah like this, that Allah will protect you from the people they wonder
that how can you say things like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was affected by magic.
When Allah says that he will protect him from the people.
And if people manage to affect the prophets of Allah who are listening with magic, you're basically saying that Allah did not protect him. So you are
contradicting the Quran. And so they say, based on you know, such
you know, such contradiction that they that they seem to find between the Quran and the Hadith. They say, well, the Quran we have to take as is. So you know what, we're not going to take the Hadees we don't believe in Hadith. Is that the right approach?
No, it's not. It's never the right approach because a hadith that is authentic and
In the Hadith that mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu arisin was affected by magic. These are a hadith in Sahih Bukhari reported by Chateau de la Miranda. So our Hadith that is authentic remember, it can never ever, ever contradict the Quran. Okay, so we have for example in sorry Buhari, a hadith in which I shall deliver on her mentions that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam was affected by magic and
he would basically forget things, okay, he would think that he had done something whereas he had not actually done it. And one day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made a lot of dura a lot of Dorf and then afterwards he told eyeshadow de la marinha that, do you know that Allah, Allah has advised me in regard to what I asked him about any Allah subhanaw taala has given me the solution to my problem.
And he mentioned that he was shown a dream in which, you know, two people were there and they were having a conversation about, you know, what was wrong with the Prophet? Any what had happened with the Prophet salallahu already he was okay. And they were talking about how he had been affected by magic and the magic was done on a comb, and that magic and that comb, that charm was basically in a well, and it was libido banal slim, who had done the magic. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had the Companions go and find it, that comb and then Allah subhanaw taala revealed Sudha to follow up and to to nurse, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam recited those verses and that charm
basically was destroyed. And the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam did not take revenge. All right from this person. But anyway,
the question is that how come the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam was affected by magic?
When Allah subhanaw taala says we're love we are Similkameen and Ness.
What's the answer to that?
How how do we see
How do we reconcile between these two statements?
Okay, this is for this specific issue to show us
what to do if we are affected by magic, all right, that he would be an example.
He was supposed to be given them why with attain, okay?
He was human. All right. That was a test.
Okay? The Jinn did magic. That's an interesting point because Allah subhanaw taala says, Allah, who you will see will come in and ask Allah will protect you from people and it's the it's through Jin, that magic is done. That's an excellent point. However. It's libido banal sin a man. Right? Who worked with the jinn in order to affect him with magic, right? So the thing is, okay, good point later, Allah protected him afterwards. So yes, some people, some of them actually say that this ayah was revealed afterwards. Okay, this I was revealed afterwards. But the thing is that the Prophet sallallahu, our husana was not just affected by magic, think about the Battle of Earth, was he not
And he did he not sustained physical injury, because of what people did to him. Yes, his teeth were broken, his, you know, he had his head was getting hurt, right?
What happened at labor, people, you know, this woman brought him some meat and that meat was poisoned, and the prophets of Allah who are isn't an eighth of that meat. And
in his last moments, he mentioned about how he could he could feel the effect of that of that poison. Right. So
you, you cannot just say that this I was revealed after all of these incidents, because from the beginning, we see that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam did experience some kind of hardship because of the plotting of people because of the attempts of people in order to harm him. So the anonymous said that this idea means that Allah will protect you in regard to conveying the message. So conveyed the message without fear.
And what it means is that they will not be able to kill you
that they will not be able to kill you before your time, and you will only die when Allah subhanaw taala has written death for you. All right, so Allah who your sin will come in and nurse and if you think about it, yes, people tried many, many times in order to kill the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, but they failed every single time. Right? Allah subhanaw taala protected him when they offered him poisoned meet Allah subhanaw taala protected him when they tried to throw bull
Older on top of him, right in order to crush him with it. Allah subhanaw taala protected him when different people came at different occasions in order to fight him and kill him. Right like that man who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took his sword and said, Who will save you from me? And the Prophet sallallahu sallam said Allah, Allah will. So nobody was able to kill him. Why? Because Allah was protecting him and even the magic, it did not kill him. Right?
All it did is that the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam would sometimes think that he had done something when he had not, in fact, done it. So remember that there is a difference between a mother and daughter Okay, as the last panel title tells us in the Quran that lay of the rule come Allah other they will never be able to harm you except with some hurt. Okay, hurt is different from from from harm, okay.
harm is that you actually cause real damage to someone real damage. All right. A las Panatela says says lair guru calm, okay, they will not be able to cause you damage in other except some hurt. All right, so yes, they did cause the Prophet sallallahu Ernest and I'm hurt of different kinds. But did they cause him any serious damage in his mission to convey? No they couldn't? Why? Because we're Allah we are Similkameen a nurse. Allah will protect you from the people. Right? So the main thing is that the Quran and Sunnah never ever contradict each other. All right, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was affected by what people are typically affected by. Right people experience
illness, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam also experienced illness, in fact, his fever would be double that of what an average person would experience. Right? He was affected by magic just as just as other people are, he was affected by physical injury just as other people are, right hunger, pain, illness, insect bites, all these things Prophet sallallahu Sallam experienced that. So Allah we are single come in and NAS does not mean that you will never experience any kind of hardship or any kind of you know difficulty. No, it means that people will not be able to kill you.
Now, what do we learn from this from this that will Allah who you'll see will come in a nurse who is the one who is protected by Allah?
What do we learn from this?
Which kind of person is protected by Allah? The conveyor, right? The one who conveys the message of Allah is protected by Allah.
Is there any other AI in the Quran that tells us a similar that gives us a similar message
Allah is protecting his message.
Reminds me of the iron sword of the Toba that
little hero who Aladeen equally Hello Creole Kathy rune Okay, good. Is there any other idea that tells us that the one who conveys the message of Allah is helped by Allah is protected by Allah?
Okay, complete the ayah for me in gun sort of lucha
in turn sort of lucha young circum
right where you submit a Kodama calm, if you help the cause of Allah. And part of helping the cause of Allah is what that you convey the message of Allah, then what will happen Allah will help you and Allah will make your feet firm. Allah subhanaw taala will give you strength and firmness. Right? Is there something that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam told us that assures us that when we conveyed and Allah's penalty will protect us?
En surah Allah, en su Kamala, follow Lalibela calm, good. But if if Allah helps you then there is no one who can overpower you. Excellent. But is there any Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam now
that gives us the same assuring message
okay, but looking for a new Willow area, all right, but a hadith that tells us that the one who conveys is going to be protected by Allah
the one who conveys is going to be protected by Allah think about it. Okay, it felt we let her
yeah phulka right that you put
tact Allah, Allah doesn't need your protection. What does that mean that you protect the deen of Allah and how do you protect the deen of Allah? That you convey it? Then what will happen? Yeah. phulka Allah will protect you.
Right now, is there a story mentioned in the Quran that tells us about people who, when they conveyed the message of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala protected them?
Allah subhanaw taala ultimately rescued them and save them.
People of the cave, excellent. Yes.
Any other story in the Quran that tells us?
Okay, actually, it's very interesting that you mentioned the three messengers from Surah, trc. Right, that
any many, many, many, many such people were also killed in in Surah trc. And we learned that the person who
any who came to support the messengers was killed. So one might say, well look at him. He is calling people to Allah and he's killed so he's not protected. The thing is that death was written for him at that time. So you only die when death is written for you. Alright, I saw somebody writing something. There was a okay, yes, those who advised the Sabbath breakers, exactly. Those who advise the Sabbath breakers, what happened with them? Last panel title tells us in so little off about the people who violated the Sabbath, that basically there were three groups of people, right, those who were violating the Sabbath, another group who was just minding their own business, right. And a
third group who were young Hone Ernie Sue soup, who were forbidding evil, who were who were stopping the Sabbath breakers from, from breaking the Sabbath. So what does Allah subhanaw taala say about them? That and Jain Alladhina Yun honer. In his su we rescued those people who were forbidding from evil. And it is only those people who were saved will harden and Ladino Ebola will be added in the eastern Pima can we have sukoon and we seized those people who did wrong with a severe punishment because of what they used to do. So based on this, I am no problem I say that the only group of people who were saved was actually those who stopped them.
Right. So this is a proof that the one who conveys the religion of Allah is protected by Allah receives the special help of Allah. Right and she has also mentioned that you know, based on some of his personal experiences that how when you, when you for example, practice the religion of Allah when you do Dawa, then it is not you who is protecting the Dawa. It is the Dawa, that is protecting you Allah subhanaw taala protects you because of that. And so many beautiful things happen when you take even a step towards Allah. And yes, there are challenges along the way. But when you look back, you see how much Allah subhanaw taala has protected you and how much he has given you and how much
he has helped you. Because you did any a tiny, tiny amount in order to serve as religion.
Alright, so those who conveyed the message of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala protects them. And this shows us that when we when we're conveying the message of Allah, we should not fear people.
Right that yes, it is scary. But people cannot cause any damage. Yes, they might cause hurt, but they cannot cause any damage. And it's the Dawa, that will protect you right through it. Allah subhanaw taala will save you then Allah's PrintWriter says in the LA halaya they will Komal caffeine indeed Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.
Excellent idea that you've quoted Alladhina you believe una de Sala Tillery I would encourage you mirage that when you quote the verse also try to put the translation so that everybody can benefit to Zachman Okay, excellent.
All right, that I ends with the statement that indeed Allah does not guide the disbelieving people. Question How is this connected to what is mentioned previously?
How is the end of the IEA connected to the middle or the beginning of the IEA?
Okay, Mirage Go ahead.
it came again. So what I think is that when Allah was talking about the people of you know, the book that they actually you know, did not the hide kind of, you know, the, the message of Allah that means they actually did cover and this is something that is
was mentioned in the Quran as well when you quoted that I you know, there are I mean if I do mean una Villa like that, like the half part you take and the hard part you did and then Allah said, it's actually the behavior of a kind of characteristics of Cofer. I mean, you're not basically you're not accepting what is revealed onto you and you're not sharing that. Probably you're trying to hide so this is kind of a behavior of Solomon and, and you know, like, Allah says here particularly, well, Allahu Allah, yeah.
What is it so McAfee exists?
So the thing is that because this is talking to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, we have to be very careful about what we say about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Okay? I will call me carefully in the disbelieving people are those who are not believing in the prophets of Allah really? Who was ALLAH, okay? So Allah is saying about them that Allah does not guide them. Allah does not guide them to what
Allah does not guide them to your harm you need they will never be able to harm you. They will never succeed in harming you in killing you. So those who disbelieve even the disbelief even if you convey everything to them, they will not be guided to to be able to inflict any harm on you.
Okay, because he Dyer is also in worldly matters. So they will not succeed in harming you. So Allah subhanaw taala for example, tells us in the Quran Wang kuru no way am Karuna. Why am Quran Allah, wa Allahu Hiral mascarene. And they plot and Allah plots in return, and Allah is the Best of those who plot plotting is something evil. All right, any the the reason behind the plot is to inflict harm on someone by the way, it's not correct to translate that is and they plan and Allah plans and Allah is the best of the planners. That's not a correct interpretation of that is that I am means that they plot to do harm and Allah plots in return to harm them. And Allah is the Best of those who plot
because his plot will will succeed and their plot will fail.
Subhanallah people misunderstand this ayah they say that their plan? You know, we had a plan. Allah has a better plan. Allah's plan is always the best. That is not the correct interpret. It's the right concept. But that's not the right interpretation of the ayah by the way, anyway, so they can plot to harm you. Okay, but no matter what the plot, Allah subhanaw taala has a counter plot. And if you look at the seed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, every single time that people tried to inflict some kind of harm on the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what happened? There plot failed.
Right? Their plot failed because of Allah who hated mascarene like when they offered him the poisoned meat, the Prophet salallahu ERISA was informed and he stopped eating it. Right when they were about to throw the boulder on him from above Gibreel came in and formed the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam so he got up and left the journey of Hijra Subhan. Allah, how Allah subhanaw taala protected him.
Right? So in Allah, Allah Delcam will carefully and secondly, this also means the connection over here of the statement with the beginning of the idea is that
Allah does not guide the disbelieving people. So these people are not guided to the truth. Not because you're not conveying
not because you're not doing a good enough job. Not because the message is incomplete. No, it's because they disbelieve. So those who disbelieve even if the message is conveyed to them in full
on the tongue of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they see him they meet him they hear Quran from him. Still, they will not be guided. Because they reject themselves in the Lucha lair. They'll come with caffeine. This is similar to how
in Alladhina Cafaro so I'm gonna lay him under the home I'm Lampton their home life, I mean, those who disbelieve it is the same to them, whether you warn them or you don't, they're not going to believe. So the fault is not yours. Right? So the end of the ayah is a consolation to the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam that when people don't believe it's not your fault, okay? It is the fact that they disbelieved. They don't want the truth. So Allah does not even give them Tofik Fela Mozelle who, as of Allah who Kaluga who, when they deviate it all
This panel titled cause their hearts to be deviated. So they're not interested in the truth the you know, the blame is entirely theirs not yours.
Okay, see a bunch of messages here.
light bulb moment. All right. I'm glad you got it Hamdulillah
you know a lot of people actually whenever I teach that I people are shocked they're like really this is what this either means And subhanAllah I've seen this I have coated in like wedding cards and you know things like that so it's it's good it's it's a correct concept that Allah's plan is the best but this is not talking about the plan it's talking about the plot to inflict harm
yes, a worker and Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam were safe in a cave and unseen okay, because of a spider web there's it's disputed whether or not there was a spider web but the main thing is that Allah subhanaw taala protected them
Okay, all right, inshallah we'll conclude over here it's 627
Was there a dev I don't know.
I don't know Allah Harlem
just said I love the reflections I love the mashallah like, this is what the benefit being in good company, you benefit so much from other people's reflections, their thought processes their mashallah experiences as well. And sadly just like blender for leading us on that journey, and allowing us to spend confident time with Quran that makes us confident and in an art that number as well as inshallah we'll continue this, it was way too short. While I didn't feel like a fool to. And it's been a time that
it's been amazing to be back with you. So there anything, I should remember this as well in the recording. But anything that you can kind of give us any encouragement because this is 16th day of Ramadan. And I think people sometimes will wait until the last 10 Nights kick off before they really like get into the final stretch of things we still have a few days before then is there anything that you do to kind of get yourself in the zone and make sure if you're feeling a dip, that you correct yourself before the month ends? I would say three things. First of all,
if you give the cat in Ramadan, make sure that you calculate years of data now.
Don't wait until the last 10 days, you don't want to be running to the bank and you know, checking your taxes and, you know, finding out hundreds of kathas do do that right now. Why because when you when you know how much a cat is due, then inshallah you can spend it easily and you you can, you know, spend more time in the last 10 Days and nights in the worship of Allah. Right. So do that right now. Secondly, I would say
make a lot of us still far start doing a lot of is still far from now seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. Because sometimes it's because of our sins, that we're not able to worship Allah more, or that we're not able to make dua. So, or we're not able to find sweetness in the worship that we're doing. So, seek a lot of forgiveness, especially in the night, especially at the time of servitude. So that you know, the, the rabada is actually made easy for you, Allah subhanaw taala increases you in tofield. And the third thing I would say is write down a DA list for yourself. Like actually write it down, sit down and write the things you want to make dua for what are your goals
for the next year? What are the things that you have to do? Right? What is your task list as Sheikh Mohammed would say that make your task list your draw list? Right? So what are your goals? What are your wishes? What are your you know, your your plans? What are your dreams? What are the things that you want? What is the ease that you want from Allah? subhanaw taala right, write those things down. So that you can actually make dua because what happens is that when you're sitting down to make dua, you're like, Okay, I'm supposed to make dua. What do I pray for? Hmm, I think I'll pray for Jana. Hmm, I think I'll I'll pray for some ease, right? Maybe I'll pray for you know, protection against
illness and things like that. Maybe I'll pray for Bataclan my wealth, but sometimes those ideas don't pop in, especially if you're hungry, if you're sleepy, it's the middle of the night. So when you have things written down, you're gonna make sure that you pray for everything that's on your mind. Inshallah
those are the three things I would say. Beautiful is that those are mashallah really well summarized actually, I have to run as you're speaking is, because you did this little limited edition. Oh, it's backwards. I'm like, you can even read this. But you mentioned Sheikh Mohammed and he was in a hurry because Don't lower your stuff.
