hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah see the more sending while earlier, he was so happy he almost sent over some netio. After that we had the laomi Deen. In this reminder, I'm going to talk about the reason why I Lost Planet Allah has named the different chapters in the Quran in the way that they have. And the way that he has Han. And the naming of the chapters, as I mentioned yesterday is something that is chosen by a lion and dictated by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam as a form of understanding to help understand the client because usually the name of the chapter is indicative of what the whole chapter is about. And obviously the one of the most

00:00:43--> 00:01:37

prominent saw in the Quran, and is the longest war and the most. In a way, it is also one of the easiest ones to acknowledge because of how law even though it seems to be long, but it's actually very easy to recite and remember as well, and that is sort of a Bakara and sort of Baccarat is named this way, which means the cow is an indication of a very important reality that a loss handler wants to remind us, as humans, and more so as the Nation of Islam, about how to proceed and what are the different things that Allah in terms of his the ways that he deals with people, the way that he has placed in terms of the the the the laws of people, and that is because Surah Al Baqarah. Number one

00:01:38--> 00:02:27

is full of rules, rules and regulations, a lot talks about the he talks about Hajj, talks about song fasting, talks about the car talks about charity, talks about money issues related to Riba and one of the longest verses in the Quran, or indeed the longest is about the debt and the writing of loans. He talks about marriage talks about divorce, talks about nursing talks about loss of power, and lots of rules, just look at the sort of office full of laws and rules, which are important for a Muslim and the Muslim community to adhere. Now, the nature of laws is that it means something which we mentioned before, which is that you need to be Muslim. laws need Islam, they need the community,

00:02:27--> 00:03:17

they need the individuals to submit to Allah, if you don't have that submission, the laws are just going to be, you know, things written on paper. And that's why laws need to be practiced. And one thing that a lot of anti teaches us from Surah Al Baqarah, which is the whole it focuses around the story of Al Baqarah, ditch the cow which in fact is only a few verses in the whole, you know, it makes her around 10 verses from the the total of 286 verses in Surah Baqarah. And what is volatile both is the story of the Baba is essentially about people who were disobedient to Allah, you know, Allah told them through the prophet Moses and acnm, he told them to carry out a simple task, which

00:03:17--> 00:04:08

is following the law, simple task, somebody had killed somebody else. And that person wanted to put the blame on another person by planting some of the evidence in that other person to make him out as if he was the killer. And the last point I wanted to show people His signs along wanted to show him the power in the miracle. And so he asked them to slaughter a cow. And that cow would be a tool for Allah to resurrect the person who was killed, to tell them who was actually the killer. But the moral of the story when you read it, and it seemed, in fact, in the beginning of sorts of Baccarat is that most of us have told them invite them to carry out this task. Instead of being a Muslim,

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

instead of being an Abbot and following out that task immediately, they started to make things harder, you know, an asking questions, what kind of cow is this? What color of the cow is it, tell us more, and so on as for and they even accused Marsalis as if he was trying to mock them or to make fun of them. So all these things show us that that was the wrong attitude of dealing with the loss of a loss pattern. And indeed, Allah says if you with all the commandments of Al Baqarah, if you do not fulfill and you do not do as you're told, then you will end up being in the same reality of those people before you who were given the commandments, but they rejected them who were given the

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

instructions, but they chose not to follow the instructions. So that is the essence

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

That is the message of Surah Al Baqarah, which we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us amongst those who read that surah understand its meaning and able to implement that in sha Allah Tada.
