Once again, we gather for the monthly to see you know, the whole

00:01:14--> 00:01:16

having started from the

00:01:18--> 00:01:26

end of the quarter, they've now reached sort of number 96 namely sort of

00:01:30--> 00:01:34

sort of the era is known by a number of names

sort of occur and sort of Acropolis will become the sort of the crop is

00:01:47--> 00:02:05

the name sort of product is taken from the second verse of the surah. And when we reach that, I will explain what it means. So most famously is actually known as sort of a sort of de nada. Allah means one of the meanings of Allah is cross blood.

00:02:12--> 00:02:20

Let me quickly translate the surah and then inshallah begin its commentary. So I will be learning in a shape on every gene.

00:02:24--> 00:02:33

The Hello, read in the name of your Lord who has created colorful in the sun, I mean, Allah was created man from

00:02:35--> 00:02:38

clots of blood. You cannot what

00:02:40--> 00:02:44

we could say, a clot of blood was created man from a clot

since he sees himself as being independent in a lot of bekerja indeed until your Lord is the return all right.

00:03:23--> 00:03:32

Have you seen one who prevents abdon is our solar servants when he prays are either in Ghana Island Hooda.

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

What do you see if

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

maybe he is on guidance or

00:03:41--> 00:03:42

or he has

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

instructed?

00:03:48--> 00:03:57

or eating? or what have you seen if he rejects and turns away? Um, yeah, Adam bitten the law.

00:03:58--> 00:04:03

00:04:44--> 00:04:47

This is a simple translation of the silver

00:04:49--> 00:04:54

lead the syrup should be split into two parts for the purpose of our understanding.

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

The first part is the first five verses. We

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

Total number of verses is 19. So the first five verses are the first part of the solar. And then the remaining 14 verses are the second part of the solar. And the reason I make this distinction will become clear in a moment.

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

Well, let me give a summary. The

00:05:25--> 00:05:35

as we move along backwards, the sorts become longer. And one of the features of most of the sorts of

00:05:36--> 00:05:41

is that much is that the worms, not all of them, at least, when

00:05:42--> 00:05:57

sorry, not all of them were revealed, in a single instance, as a complete source. Rather, there were portions versus, and nor was it the case that

00:05:59--> 00:06:43

a surah was revealed in portions. And only when that sort of ended, did another sort of applicant know, verses were revealed. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would instruct the companions to place these different verses in different sorts of the soul simultaneously, or shall we say, in a short period of time, a number of verses could have been revealed, all of which were placed in different sources by the prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam at that given time. So keeping that in mind, this is one of the first long swords that we've come across, moving backwards from the end of the quarter arm. And this is a clear example of the first part of the sort of being

00:06:43--> 00:06:56

revealed much earlier. In fact, at the very beginning of Islam, and the remainder of the surah being revealed at a later date, not much later, but sometime later.

00:06:59--> 00:07:03

This ninth of the Quran is

00:07:04--> 00:07:22

renown and is famous, primarily for one reason, which is that the first five verses mark the beginning of the revelation of the Quran toward a sort of law, some of the law it was the mark the beginning of Revelation.

00:07:24--> 00:07:28

These were the very first words revealed to the prophets on the line equals

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

five verses.

00:07:32--> 00:07:36

Hence, the surah is renowned for this reason.

00:07:40--> 00:07:47

The first bar the first five verses in question are you put up this middle bigger lady huddled up in Santa Monica,

00:07:49--> 00:07:52

Liliana middle column, and women in Santa Monica

00:07:54--> 00:07:55

resigns,

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

in the name of your Lord

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

who has created

00:08:03--> 00:08:06

was created man from a clots

00:08:09--> 00:08:15

re resides and your Lord is the Most Gracious the most noble. He was taught by the pen

00:08:16--> 00:08:26

was taught man what he did not know. These were the first five verses revealed to the Prophet some of the law highly or some of them. Now.

00:08:28--> 00:08:32

We shouldn't just pass by these verses in a casual manner.

00:08:34--> 00:08:35

The background

00:08:37--> 00:08:37

and the history

00:08:39--> 00:08:43

of the revelation of these first five verses is significant.

00:08:46--> 00:08:50

Meaning eyeshadow Viola relates

00:08:52--> 00:09:00

obviously this is something which she learns from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself since she wasn't present at the time.

00:09:03--> 00:09:12

She relates that prior to the revelation of the Quran, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was approaching

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

his 40th birthday.

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

The beginning of revelation

00:09:25--> 00:09:27

was marked by

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

very vivid

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

and true dreams.

00:09:35--> 00:09:53

So for a number of months prior to the revelation of these first five verses, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would see clear dreams clear visions. These were very vivid and sharp. But more importantly,

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

he would actually see the manifestation and the interpretation of these dreams.

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

as clear as daylight

00:10:03--> 00:10:07

in a shadow, the law says, describing the

00:10:11--> 00:10:31

interpretation and the manifestation of these dreams with the words, mythical Philip is like the breaking of door, like the breaking of the morning. So the dreams were very clear, very vivid, and their manifestation were also very clear and vivid

00:10:32--> 00:10:44

and reality was a reflection of the profits of the livelihood cinemas dreams for a good number of months prior to the revelation of these first verses. During that period,

00:10:47--> 00:11:01

Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was more drawn and more endeared to solitude and seclusion. So he would retreat into solitude and seclusion. This is one of the famous long first had ethos.

00:11:06--> 00:11:12

When the prophet SAW the love it was nobody would withdraw in seclusion, he would normally retreat to

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

amounts and a cave in that mountain.

00:11:20--> 00:11:22

No one has heard of the Cave of

00:11:24--> 00:11:29

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would spend many days and nights alone.

00:11:33--> 00:11:38

In Arabic, she was known as she says, what kind of ghanians he would practice.

00:11:39--> 00:12:02

The homeless was that about worshiping Allah, spending time in contemplation meditation, obviously, at the time, the Koran had not been revealed, and therefore the forms of worship as we know them in Islam, were not introduced to the property of the law eyelink or some of them. So

00:12:04--> 00:12:15

we have no definite information as to the form and the manner that his worship took. But considering the reports,

00:12:16--> 00:12:24

it would be the remembrance of Allah and contemplation and meditation on the greatness of a lot of his origin. That's what he was guided to.

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

And this tanworth

00:12:30--> 00:12:55

much of it will take place in the month of Ramadan. So this shows that the Attica of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began not just in his later years of Medina, but the history of Africa stretches back all the way to before the revelation of the first verses of the Koran that was his Attica. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will do Africa in a heartbeat.

00:12:59--> 00:13:19

And that continued all the way till aryktech off in mustard, Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam. So this was his, Attica is the hanworth is that these are the two words used in the Hadith panels and that he would spend many nights in seclusion in worship, he would take provisions with him, and then

00:13:21--> 00:13:39

what we need for the job, the alarm on her would also come frequently, to replenish his supplies, and prophets of Allah hiding some would spend some time there and then descend again to return to his family. It was in the month of Ramadan

00:13:41--> 00:13:50

in his 40th year, or after his 40th year, that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alone in the cave.

00:13:52--> 00:13:55

And when he himself relates that

00:13:57--> 00:13:59

gibreel alayhis salam came to him,

00:14:01--> 00:14:04

but not in his true full form, at that time, at least.

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

And he said to him, it

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

was that

00:14:11--> 00:14:18

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being unlettered instantly said, Martin, I am not one to read.

00:14:21--> 00:14:27

When he said that jabril the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says repeatedly his Salaam he sees me.

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

forgotten the minimal.

00:14:32--> 00:14:50

Then he squeezed me until he pushed me to the limits of my endurance. Then he released me, then it said, Bri resound. Again the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Martin, I am not one to read again.

00:14:51--> 00:14:54

He sees the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and crushed him.

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

He pressed me

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

squeezed me until he took me to the limit of mine juans then he released me.

00:15:07--> 00:15:23

Then he again said read recite. I again, replied Martin a big part of it. So he squeezed me again for the third time until he pushed me to the limits and the extent of my endurance when he released me. Then he said, read

00:15:25--> 00:15:34

then Jubilee relay his Salaam recite these verses of the Koran to him, he said to him read Acropolis middle piccalilli hudec.

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

from Ludhiana middle column Andaman in Santa Marta,

00:15:42--> 00:15:46

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then recited. Then gibreel Allah His

00:15:49--> 00:16:13

left, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was overwhelmed and filled with all by this experience, immediately descended and rushed home, saying to me and the general the alarm when he entered the house, it was trembling Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was trembling and filled with all and France.

00:16:15--> 00:16:24

And he as soon as he entered, he said, for the job of the alarm on hand, the feminism the loonies and The Loon shroud me in a cloth, because he was trembling.

00:16:27--> 00:16:37

Then he spoke to her the general the alarm her and explained to her what he had experienced. And he added to it and I've seen deed, I have a fear for myself,

00:16:38--> 00:16:41

and for the job of the lover, and I reassured him.

00:16:43--> 00:16:44

It was remarkable.

00:16:45--> 00:16:49

Imagine the leader of mankind, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:16:51--> 00:16:52

being who he was.

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

He was trembling,

00:17:02--> 00:17:08

in fear in front, filled with all overwhelmed by this experience.

00:17:10--> 00:17:16

On that occasion, who was the one present to reassure him, it was none other than a woman,

00:17:18--> 00:17:20

Lady for the gyro, the alarm.

00:17:22--> 00:17:31

And her reassurance was of such a sublime nature, her words of wisdom, she said,

00:17:32--> 00:17:37

when he said to her, I fear for myself, she said to him, never,

00:17:39--> 00:17:41

alone will never disgrace you.

00:17:43--> 00:17:46

Then she praised him.

00:17:50--> 00:17:56

That saying that, indeed, you tie the bonds of kin and blood.

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

You speak the truth.

00:18:02--> 00:18:05

You bear the burden of other people.

00:18:07--> 00:18:10

You are hospitable to the guests.

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

Well, they're a northerner

00:18:14--> 00:18:19

and you assist others in their calamities and their misfortune.

00:18:20--> 00:18:23

One very important point here, which I mentioned,

00:18:24--> 00:18:29

years ago, 1314 years ago, when I first started the common Shiva dream.

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

to praise someone,

00:18:33--> 00:18:39

and to flatter them is harder to their fat to praise someone to their face, and to flatter them is how

00:18:41--> 00:18:46

it's not harm in the absolute sense without qualification without exception.

00:18:49--> 00:19:00

The prohibition of praising people to their face is when it's done insincerely. One it's done for fracturing.

00:19:02--> 00:19:03

That's deception.

00:19:05--> 00:19:08

It's done with an ulterior motive.

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

That's a bit.

00:19:13--> 00:19:14

Also if there's a danger.

00:19:16--> 00:19:20

And in most instances there is. This is why it's strongly discouraged.

00:19:21--> 00:19:32

If there's a danger that the other person will become inflated, and proud, and self conceited by someone's praise to their face, then

00:19:34--> 00:19:39

undoubtedly is forbidden because you will be doing more good, more harm than good.

00:19:40--> 00:19:47

You may please them momentarily. But you will do untold damage to their

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

sense of self, to their ego, to their spirits to their room, and to their map and Panama.

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

The wisdom of the teachings of Islam.

00:20:06--> 00:20:09

That's why I had to sort of lessen the likelihood some of them said,

00:20:10--> 00:20:11

if you were to him,

00:20:13--> 00:20:22

throw dust in the face, or in the man's foot throw and fill dust in the mouths of fratris.

00:20:28--> 00:20:33

And I just read something recently, within the past few weeks, but again,

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

recent studies and research have shown

00:20:39--> 00:20:40

that children

00:20:42--> 00:20:44

who are constantly praised,

00:20:48--> 00:20:52

actually suffered emotional and psychological damage in the long term.

00:20:55--> 00:20:58

And this shows when they grow into adults,

00:20:59--> 00:21:02

and this is contrary to what people used to believe before.

00:21:04--> 00:21:04

So

00:21:06--> 00:21:08

what should be done with children? Well,

00:21:10--> 00:21:12

what was suggested is what

00:21:13--> 00:21:19

Islamic teaching has always said, be balanced, the moderates, do not abuse

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

do not denigrate, do not degrade, do not humiliate. But at the same time, do not smother the children

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

do not

00:21:34--> 00:21:36

constantly praise them,

00:21:37--> 00:21:39

do not constantly raise them and elevate.

00:21:41--> 00:21:48

And one of the quirks one of the twists in this is that if children are constantly praised,

00:21:50--> 00:21:56

children develop an understanding that the praise is false.

00:21:57--> 00:22:03

Because it's constant, it's continuous. And it's coming from loved ones.

00:22:05--> 00:22:25

And so they actually develop a false they actually develop an understanding that this is false assurance. So why is there a need for false assurance is because we aren't what we are told we are, we aren't what we are made out to be. So this actually leads to low self esteem.

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

So the teaching is be balanced

00:22:31--> 00:22:32

with children and with that

00:22:34--> 00:22:37

Allah tells us some sort of approach art

00:22:38--> 00:22:42

Yeah, you're living in an all is on NASA and you're

00:22:43--> 00:22:44

well on this

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

one, what are the Mizzou Latina?

00:22:51--> 00:22:52

This

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

woman?

00:22:57--> 00:23:16

Oh believers, lots and lots of groups of men and last year ridicu a group of men, that's the ones being ridiculed are better than those who are mocking. And let's not so, group of women mock another group of women, less those who are being mocked are better than those who are ridiculing.

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

Then

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

what are the missile enforcers

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

and do not defame yourself

00:23:30--> 00:23:31

I do not defend each other.

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

What are the neighbors who will

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

and do not towards one another with names.

00:23:39--> 00:23:42

That means even simple names.

00:23:43--> 00:23:50

Any title which the addressee finds offensive is stupid.

00:23:51--> 00:23:53

Regardless of how true it may be.

00:23:57--> 00:24:00

So if someone has a certain physical feature,

00:24:01--> 00:24:05

or a prominent characteristic,

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

then

00:24:09--> 00:24:13

it could be a disability, it could be a disadvantage, it could be

00:24:14--> 00:24:28

a detracting physical feature, regardless, or it could be it doesn't have to be physical, it could be something else. To call them by that name is deeply offensive. And it's not just offensive, it's harmful.

00:24:30--> 00:24:58

And no one should think these three things that last forbidden in this verse as being trivial. ridiculing one another mocking one another, calling out to one another with offensive titles and names and defaming each other. These aren't trivial. These aren't inconsequential. These aren't casual. These aren't small, because Allah ends the verse with the words bits of a small historical battle.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

The evil indeed

00:25:03--> 00:25:04

is the name of sin.

00:25:06--> 00:25:12

After EMA, what's that mean? Evil indeed, is the name of sin after.

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

What this means is that after Allah has blessed you and endowed you with faith after law has gifted you with a great gift and blessing of EMA.

00:25:27--> 00:25:31

It is extremely unbefitting and beholding of you

00:25:32--> 00:25:57

and it is in fact evil of you to continue to indulge in these despicable behaviors. They are incompatible with faith in Allah. They are incompatible with Mr. A mcminn. A believer does not mock, does not ridicule, does not defend and does not talk or call out to anyone with offensive names.

00:25:59--> 00:26:07

These behaviors are incompatible with Eman ally, ends averse by saying evil indeed is the name of sin after email.

00:26:09--> 00:26:24

So that's what the Quran says about speaking negatively to people about people especially to their face, do not mock, do not defame do not denigrate, do not degrade. They're not taught to not call out

00:26:25--> 00:26:31

with offensive names. Then at the same time Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us

00:26:32--> 00:26:42

cast dust and fill the mounds of flatterers with dust. So what's the teaching? And what do we do? perfect balance

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

remain moderate and bad.

00:26:49--> 00:27:04

And part of that moderation and balance is that you criticize someone where criticism is due and justified, with honesty, with justice, and in an upright decent manner.

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

criticizing a person

00:27:08--> 00:27:10

is not wrong.

00:27:12--> 00:27:18

And you won't be doing the other person harm. This is why Barbara de la who used to say,

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

may Allah have mercy on someone

00:27:23--> 00:27:26

who gives me a gift of my faults and errors?

00:27:28--> 00:27:33

may Allah have mercy on the man who presents me with a gift of my errors?

00:27:35--> 00:27:38

And as we know from the study, a believer is a mirror of a belief.

00:27:41--> 00:27:49

And at the same time, where praise is justified and is due when one can pray.

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

And here

00:27:52--> 00:28:03

there's no prohibition of praising someone to their face, if the circumstances require it, if it's actually helpful if it's needed, like on this occasion.

00:28:05--> 00:28:09

If a person is in need of reassurance,

00:28:10--> 00:28:32

for instance, someone is I'm not comparing the two but just to give you an example, if someone is suffering from low self esteem, if someone is beating themselves up, if someone is indulging in a bout of self flagellation, if someone is degrading and diminishing oneself, feeling low in the pits,

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

then

00:28:37--> 00:29:01

those who are close to them their loved ones, those who know them, can and should, honestly and sincerely remind them of laws, gifts and favors and blessings on them. Not make them feel that they are being ungrateful, no, that will only add to the misery but to remind them of the good qualities that they have, that Allah has in dapple

00:29:03--> 00:29:07

to remind them of how special they are. And indeed,

00:29:09--> 00:29:11

every human being is special.

00:29:13--> 00:29:15

Every human being is unique.

00:29:16--> 00:29:20

You will always find someone who is more intelligent than you.

00:29:21--> 00:29:25

You will always find someone who is more handsome or beautiful.

00:29:26--> 00:29:29

You will always find someone who is physically stronger than you.

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

You will always find someone

00:29:33--> 00:29:37

who exceeds who does you who surpasses you,

00:29:38--> 00:29:41

in any one quality.

00:29:42--> 00:29:43

Without that

00:29:46--> 00:29:55

there were those who lived longer than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he died in 16. He died at the age of 63. And they were Luna years.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

There were people who lived longer than the prophets in the LA Valley.

00:30:01--> 00:30:05

I met one scholar once, and I asked him his age.

00:30:06--> 00:30:12

And he said to me, don't talk to me about my age, I am living on borrowed time and I am ashamed.

00:30:13--> 00:30:17

I said, Why? He said, For I have lived longer than the profits and the love.

00:30:20--> 00:30:23

So people with people live longer than the professor the law highly.

00:30:27--> 00:30:47

So, someone or someone will always ask Do it surpasses Excel as exceed as in one particular quality, but as a combination of the qualities, as a collection of these characteristics, Allah has made every human being unique.

00:30:48--> 00:30:50

There is no one better than that.

00:30:51--> 00:31:00

And this is why we should all be grateful for what we are and who we all strive to better ourselves, but at the same time,

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

not being grateful to last.

00:31:06--> 00:31:20

So if someone is in need of reassurance, then by all means, not only can one but one should reassure the other purse, and we find the perfect example in what we need for the job of the

00:31:22--> 00:31:24

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came home

00:31:26--> 00:31:27

filled with

00:31:28--> 00:31:30

overwhelmed, filled with all

00:31:32--> 00:31:36

saints of the family, the middle nism will only cover me trout.

00:31:39--> 00:32:03

And he said to her, she'd rather not see I fear for myself. And her reply was never By Allah, Allah will never disgrace. And then she praised the prophets of Allah. It was something you mentioned. She being the wife, she being a woman, she was reassuring and reminding the leader of all the messengers that he was

00:32:05--> 00:32:06

because he was a human being.

00:32:08--> 00:32:19

And he feared for himself, he was filled with all frightened and she reassured and what words of reassurance she reminded him of his noble and sublime qualities.

00:32:20--> 00:32:56

She then took him to her cousin, Brother nanofiller, who was blind, and he was an enlightened soul, who shunned paganism and idolatry. And he searched for the truth, and his search for truth. And for the worship of Allah, with the hate and monotheism led him to accepting an embrace in Christianity. And he was a scholar of a man from Makkah, cousin, brother of one woman named Khadija huddled the alarm on her.

00:32:57--> 00:33:02

And he before before he became blind, he had

00:33:03--> 00:33:20

studied and read, and he used to read and translate scriptures, Hebrew Scriptures from Hebrew into Arabic. And it was a learned man, she took him to him, and said to her cousin, brother that listen to your nephew to see what he has to say.

00:33:21--> 00:33:27

So, perhaps the law it seldom was asked by what I've gotten to know for.

00:33:29--> 00:33:30

What do you see, oh, my nephew,

00:33:32--> 00:33:39

the province of the law, it was unrelated everything to him to which would have been an awful said, This is that same

00:33:40--> 00:33:43

Angel, that same spirits

00:33:44--> 00:33:53

have a number some they're the ones that are Allahu Allah. This is that same spirits, that same angel that was sent down to the Prophet Musa alayhis salam.

00:33:55--> 00:34:04

And he knew what this meant, because of his knowledge of the Scriptures and the history of the prophets. So he said to him, since he was old, he said to him,

00:34:05--> 00:34:09

would that's how I wish would that I be a young man.

00:34:10--> 00:34:12

When that time comes

00:34:13--> 00:34:19

with that I would be present when your people shall drive you from the city,

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

to the province of the law hiding or send themselves or

00:34:24--> 00:34:40

when my people drive me from the city, province of the law, it was seldom said so what nofal said, of course, never has a prophet of Allah come with what you have come with, except that he has been opposed, and he has been given troubling hurts.

00:34:43--> 00:34:46

But he said, If I would be alive at that time,

00:34:48--> 00:34:53

I will most assuredly support you in a very definite and strong way.

00:34:54--> 00:34:57

But then he did not survive for very long and he passed away

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

that month.

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

The beginning of Revelation. And like I said earlier, we shouldn't just pass pass by these verses in a casual manner. Rather,

00:35:11--> 00:35:11

we should

00:35:12--> 00:35:25

remember how significant these five verses are. They marked the beginning of Revelation, they marked that period for 23 years, during which the doors of the heavens well,

00:35:28--> 00:35:30

and men communicated with the law.

00:35:32--> 00:35:33

And the law revealed

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

revelation

00:35:38--> 00:35:50

to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who served as a conduit as the going between, and as both the representative of a larger his creation and the representative of the creation to the Creator.

00:35:52--> 00:35:56

But with the going with the passing of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam This came to an end.

00:35:58--> 00:36:22

And that in itself was significant. The beginning of revelation was significant because it meant that connection and that communication between the creator and his creation, and with the passing or the sort of last alarm, it was that communication and that connection was severed. This is why those who knew and understood

00:36:23--> 00:36:30

they realize the significance of this event, the beginning of Revelation, and the end of Revelation.

00:36:32--> 00:36:42

And who was one of those, none other than abubaker, and Amara de la Noma. But even more than Uber kuramoto de Allahumma, he was again under the lane.

00:36:46--> 00:36:51

Women have played an amazing role in the beginning of Islam,

00:36:53--> 00:36:56

far from Islam, suppressing

00:36:57--> 00:36:59

and degrading women.

00:37:02--> 00:37:03

And far from

00:37:04--> 00:37:07

our cultural attitudes being representative.

00:37:09--> 00:37:11

If we look at the true history of Islam,

00:37:14--> 00:37:20

women played a major role in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, in the beginning of

00:37:23--> 00:37:33

the mausoleum or the alarm her the mother of your loved one, the wives of the prophets of Allah and evil sin. So me out of the law, her and her the mother of

00:37:35--> 00:37:39

the first martyr in the first believe that in Islam

00:37:40--> 00:37:45

was not even a worker of the alarm. He was one morning, Khadija.

00:37:49--> 00:37:52

And another figure was more a man or the

00:37:53--> 00:37:57

woman, a member of the law, whose name was Baraka. Her name was Baraka,

00:38:00--> 00:38:05

Wayman, for the alarm one, how was the maid who actually looked after the prophets of Allah.

00:38:07--> 00:38:12

So she remained with him for most of his life. She had seen him since childhood.

00:38:14--> 00:38:18

She can't have been much older than him himself.

00:38:20--> 00:38:29

But she nursed, she looked after him as a little girl herself. She looked after him, she nursed him, she grew up with him.

00:38:30--> 00:38:34

And she remained a part of his life.

00:38:36--> 00:38:39

Till the end, at times,

00:38:41--> 00:38:55

she would even speak to him in a manner that was quite different to the way others would address him. But the province of the law it was the limiters for parents and his tolerance and his understanding and his respect and love for her. He would,

00:38:56--> 00:38:58

he would overlook everything.

00:39:00--> 00:39:01

This even law the law.

00:39:03--> 00:39:11

After the profits of the law, Eileen sort of passed away, one day, Abubakar rhodiola and set the alarm on.

00:39:13--> 00:39:21

One of them said to the other, let us go and visit what Ayman just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would go to visit

00:39:22--> 00:39:24

during his life. So they both came

00:39:26--> 00:39:31

out of the coma, they came and sat down before, remember the alarm on her.

00:39:33--> 00:39:34

And she started weeping.

00:39:36--> 00:39:58

So both of them are working on the alarm, I thought that she was weeping at the loss of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So to reassure her of the law and these two great men with their understanding and their intelligence and wisdom, and their foresight and insight,

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

seeing her

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

We are working on the Allahumma sought to reassure her and consoled her. So they both said to her, why do you weep? Do you not know? That after all, what is with Allah is far better than the Prophet for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam than what is with us.

00:40:20--> 00:40:39

So my mother your loved one has replied marvel at her reply. She said, I do not weep at the loss of a sort of love some of the line you're sending them, for I know, that that's which is with Allah is far better for him. But I weep, because when revelation has come to an end,

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

when she said that to them, abubaker and Amato, the Allah, Allah burst into tears, and they sat weeping with her

00:40:50--> 00:40:52

one standard.

00:40:53--> 00:41:11

This is why I say we shouldn't just pass by these verses. This was the significance that these verses marked the beginning of that channel of communication, and contact between the creation and the Creator. And with the end of the revelation, that door was closed for good.

00:41:12--> 00:41:26

Those who knew and understood they realize the significance, someone of the caliber of the alarm rang her who had remained with the province similarly, some throughout her life, on that occasion.

00:41:27--> 00:41:29

She had

00:41:31--> 00:41:36

an insight and an understanding that even aboubaker a member of the alarm, I did not have that.

00:41:37--> 00:41:53

That's how significant this was. So these verses Acropolis moorambilla, the haluk mark, the beginning of Revelation, but what do these first five verses actually mean? They've got up Mr. Milan, become the the hudec, recite, in the name of your Lord, who created

00:41:54--> 00:41:58

we have been commanded just as a property of the law it was and was commanded

00:42:00--> 00:42:04

to take the name of Allah when we recite.

00:42:05--> 00:42:08

So in other verses, we learn that when we recite before

00:42:10--> 00:42:11

with

00:42:12--> 00:42:20

the learning ministry plan of Virginia, when you recite the program, then seek refuge in Allah from the occur shebang.

00:42:21--> 00:42:38

So along with our learning ministry partner regime, we also read the Muller team, and this is it, you're caught up this middle of the hollow site in the name of your Lord. And it's not just reciting the Koran we have been commanded that and taught that whatever we do,

00:42:39--> 00:42:46

the beginning of our words, the beginning of our speech, commencement of our deeds, everything should begin

00:42:47--> 00:42:48

by the name of Allah.

00:42:49--> 00:42:55

So Acropolis Mirabella de hudec, besides by the name of your Lord,

00:42:56--> 00:42:59

which Lord Allah the hudec, he has created

00:43:01--> 00:43:15

the object of the last creation or the the object of a last act of creating has not been mentioned here. It's unqualified unspecified. It's just left general. He was created meaning he created everything.

00:43:18--> 00:43:23

Then in the next verse, Allah says hello Kalin Sanam and Allah, He who created man.

00:43:27--> 00:43:28

Now look at the shift,

00:43:30--> 00:43:39

re recite, read in the name and by the name or in the by the name of your Lord, who created created what

00:43:41--> 00:43:48

he created everything the whole universe, and the universe is vast, beyond our wildest imagination.

00:43:53--> 00:44:00

As I've mentioned before, just to grasp, Mater grasp, but just to gain an inkling of an idea.

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

Consider how vast The earth is.

00:44:07--> 00:44:12

And the earth is one planets out of the solar system of eight planets.

00:44:15--> 00:44:18

The solar system which is huge,

00:44:20--> 00:44:25

with hundreds of millions of miles between the outer planets,

00:44:26--> 00:44:29

one planet to the other hundreds of millions of miles.

00:44:31--> 00:44:33

And this is one Solar System

00:44:34--> 00:44:37

orbiting around one sun one star.

00:44:39--> 00:44:40

And it's one star

00:44:41--> 00:44:46

is just one star out of

00:44:48--> 00:44:49

a huge galaxy.

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

And that's just one galaxy. Astronomers say to give you an example two astronomers say there are an average of 200

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

100 billion stars in each galaxy.

00:45:06--> 00:45:09

And they are approximately an average of 200 billion galaxies.

00:45:12--> 00:45:34

And our understanding is that all of these galaxies still form only parts of one known universe. And now they speak of multiverses. And we believe that all of these multiverses, whatever they may be, if they are, all of it still collectively, only marks one out of the seven.

00:45:36--> 00:45:39

So Allah has created all of that.

00:45:40--> 00:46:11

But what really matters, in that entire creation, in all of these multiverses, and all of these universes and all of these galaxies, and what really matters, is if we zoom down from that vast universe, all the way down to one thing, a lot created under the Hulk, he who creates it, he left it General, everything, but of his entire creation, what does he speak of, in some he who creates it?

00:46:14--> 00:46:16

We are worthy enough

00:46:17--> 00:46:19

in the sight of Allah,

00:46:21--> 00:46:26

of being mentioned, specifically from his entire creation,

00:46:27--> 00:46:30

but less we become inflated with pride and

00:46:32--> 00:46:40

arrogance of our minds is conducted in San minAllah, he created who created men from a club.

00:46:41--> 00:46:45

That's how a lowly humble biological origin

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

we are but

00:46:48--> 00:47:03

clots of blood. Now, as you may have heard me, variably say clot, singular and clots, plural, for those of you who understand Arabic, is actually the plural of Allah. And Allah means clots.

00:47:04--> 00:47:49

It can even mean a collection of cells. But I won't dabble into the scientific aspects of this verse. We'll leave it at that. Suffice to know that you can still say clots, meaning clots, is the congeal, meant and the collection of smaller clots. So whether you say clots of blood, linguistically, that's correct. Or if you say, clots of blood, although the word Allah is plural, the meaning of clots in English, as a singular is a collection of smaller plots of blood, or congealed. So that's how we're origin. And this isn't our absolute origin, because obviously, there are stages of creation before that as well. But it's one of the earliest stages of creation. It's

00:47:49--> 00:47:52

one of the phases of our development.

00:47:55--> 00:48:01

At one time, we were just simple cells and clumps of blood. That is our orange

00:48:02--> 00:48:04

carpet in Santa Ana de

00:48:06--> 00:48:10

la gang repeats, resigns, and your Lord

00:48:12--> 00:48:16

is the Most Gracious, this was an affirmation

00:48:17--> 00:48:38

for us all last on the line, even some because he said, Matt, under the clarity, I'm not one to read. He was told at the beginning, if not read, recite. And then he's told again, here in this third verse read, recite the Quran, from rusyns. And your Lord is the Most Gracious and at the Alamo, Bill Clinton, he who taught

00:48:39--> 00:48:40

by the pen.

00:48:41--> 00:48:45

literacy, writing has always played an important part in

00:48:47--> 00:49:13

history, in knowledge, information, and it's metaphorical. Anything that is related to the written word, your modern instruments, but it's it's a metaphor, it's an allegory for writing for reading for literacy, and the conveying and transfer of information through visual means. So

00:49:15--> 00:49:37

a pen or reading, writing, literacy, and the instruments of passing information are all important. And even though for the Arabs at the time of a sort of lots of the love it, some of them writing and reading were not widely he wasn't common, he wasn't widespread. But since then,

00:49:40--> 00:49:44

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself was kept and letter by Allah.

00:49:45--> 00:49:52

He always emphasized the importance of learning, education,

00:49:54--> 00:49:55

even though Allah kept him unlettered

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

To the extent that the Prophet some of the love Ireland, Jerusalem, in the back, sort of but when the capsules were taken

00:50:09--> 00:50:19

those who were not ransomed because their families were either unable or unwilling to answer them, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made their ransom.

00:50:20--> 00:50:28

Simple, no money. those of them who could read and write, were told to teach the people of Medina.

00:50:30--> 00:50:52

So education has always played an important part. And this is a reference to that Olivia, and I'm a bit of other than he who taught man by the pen. And like I said, the pen here is a reference to literacy to any instrument or means of passing on knowledge and information

00:50:53--> 00:50:57

on them in Santa, Madame Yellen, who taught man what he did not not.

00:51:00--> 00:51:07

Here, there's something quite important, which is that although all our knowledge and information comes from Allah, ultimately,

00:51:09--> 00:51:16

one of the great meanings of this verse element in Santa Monica, who taught man what he did not know,

00:51:18--> 00:51:18

is

00:51:20--> 00:51:23

to do with spirituality, and Revelation.

00:51:24--> 00:51:26

Revelation has brought us

00:51:28--> 00:51:46

with these verses began that process of Revelation, which brought us that wisdom and understanding. And that knowledge, which we could have never acquired, through our senses, our means, and our own intelligence.

00:51:48--> 00:51:54

There's only so much that we can do so much that we can manage, before we reach men,

00:51:55--> 00:52:35

where our understanding and where our intelligence and the wisdom of revelation begin. So aluminum Santa, Madame Yellen, who taught man what he did not know. This means everything that man did not know before, but specifically, and most importantly, the truths of religion, the truths of Revelation, those truths that human minds could have never arrived at, of their own accord. So I live in Santa Monica, Maryland, he taught them what he did not know, these were the first five verses, and they marked the beginning of Revelation, this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam came down with from last year.

00:52:36--> 00:52:42

And that's the first part of the silver, a lot more can be said, but we don't have much time. So I'll suffice with this.

00:52:44--> 00:52:55

Moving on to the next remainder, words are connecting them and finally a lot of artists name, indeed man transgress

00:52:56--> 00:53:00

our arms dogma because he sees himself as independent.

00:53:02--> 00:53:31

Let me just quickly translate the remaining 14 verses so that we have an idea again, of what's being said here, because they are all more or less related to one thing, so may indeed ma'am transgressors, because he sees himself as independence. Indeed him to your Lord is the return. Have you seen one who prevents a servant when he prays? Have you seen if maybe he is on guidance or he instructs to

00:53:33--> 00:53:35

do you do you see

00:53:37--> 00:53:49

if he rejects and turns away, does he not see that does he not know that lassies name if he does not desist? And we wish the most assuredly sees him by the forelock

00:53:51--> 00:53:57

alarm a simple deceitful forelock. So lets him summon

00:53:59--> 00:54:00

his assembly.

00:54:01--> 00:54:06

We shall also call the infernal God's name,

00:54:07--> 00:54:08

do not obey

00:54:09--> 00:54:12

and prostrate and draw close.

00:54:13--> 00:54:15

The these verses

00:54:16--> 00:54:28

were revealed following a confrontation between a pseudo la sala de la vida who settled them and one of the leaders of the Orion shamrock mahisha.

00:54:29--> 00:54:32

More infamously known as a double jab.

00:54:34--> 00:54:40

His name was Emerald mahisha. Hammer the son of a sham from the clan of Muslim,

00:54:41--> 00:54:44

a very wealthy and powerful figure in Makkah.

00:54:46--> 00:54:48

And his Konya who was

00:54:51--> 00:54:52

the father of wisdom,

00:54:53--> 00:54:59

he was a wild cat whiny character, very politically achieved.

00:55:01--> 00:55:02

Very intelligent,

00:55:04--> 00:55:10

very adept at managing alliances and garnering support.

00:55:13--> 00:55:20

And he was noted for his gifts of oratory of eloquence of intelligence of leadership.

00:55:22--> 00:55:28

And this people gave him the title father of wisdom, because of his bitter hatred,

00:55:30--> 00:55:48

towards Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stuck very low, and because of his lowly, despicable qualities in relation to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his bitter opposition. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam nicknamed him,

00:55:49--> 00:55:54

the father of ignorance. And he played a prominent role in the early days of Islam.

00:55:56--> 00:56:04

To understand macam society I've explained before, there was no it was a tribal society, there was no one overall leader.

00:56:06--> 00:56:10

They regard them as first amongst equals. So

00:56:11--> 00:56:13

each family,

00:56:14--> 00:56:38

each individual is represented and protected by the family. The family was represented by the clan, the clans were represented by the tribe, and the dominant tribe in Makkah, was orange. And the branch was made up by many different clans, some more powerful than others. And one of the clans was muscle, but almost all

00:56:39--> 00:56:41

and it was very powerful.

00:56:42--> 00:56:48

Possibly the most powerful clan in Makkah at the time. And the chief of the mamasan.

00:56:49--> 00:56:50

One of the change

00:56:51--> 00:56:55

was a butcher. The other chiefs also

00:56:58--> 00:57:00

hard It didn't really do some the same plan.

00:57:02--> 00:57:03

And Holly didn't believe

00:57:04--> 00:57:13

that when he was actually more senior than a double jack, so he was much more senior. So he in fact, he was a great leader. But

00:57:14--> 00:57:22

there were many different leaders. And we've heard we've all heard of Sonali that the chieftains and the father figures of the aurash.

00:57:24--> 00:58:10

Abuja was one of them. But they were much more senior in position in the thority and older figures. And most of this was like a counselor sense, they would all gather in the middle of the the assembly in Makkah, it was actually quite democratic in a way, because they would all gather, and they would have strong discussions, and they would reach decisions collectively. But it was still a very tribal and hierarchical society. But I will general rose to prominence not so much because he was the overall most powerful leader of Makkah. Now, he actually rose to prominence because of his bitter opposition, sort of sort of la salle de la vida.

00:58:12--> 00:58:34

Some other leaders, they oppose the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam on an ideological basis, they oppose them because of their clan and because of their personal interests, but they never sung Hello, they maintained a decorum. They maintained a certain self dignity, even in opposition.

00:58:35--> 00:58:36

But I will gel for some reason.

00:58:37--> 00:58:42

He was quite bitter and despicable in his behavior.

00:58:44--> 00:58:53

And this is why he was probably one of the most infamous opponents of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. On one occasion,

00:58:55--> 00:58:56

he

00:58:57--> 00:59:01

he did a lot. He's the same person who invited

00:59:02--> 00:59:07

when the province of the lavallee was performing sada in the bath

00:59:09--> 00:59:11

A few years after

00:59:14--> 00:59:19

he was sitting with his Chrome's, and he said to them, that who will stand up

00:59:20--> 00:59:29

this is a more gentle speak, who will rise and go to the she camel, have such and such a family that has just given birth

00:59:30--> 00:59:44

and collect the afterbirth and the amniotic sac of that catchy camel that has given birth and bring that filth and dump it on the back of Hamlet whilst he is praying.

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

So one of them stood up, I will gentle never did it. He was the one who instigated it. So one of them stood up, went and got that amniotic sac and the after birth and came dumped it on the profits of the line. He was sudden why

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

He was in frustration.

01:00:02--> 01:00:36

And it was, no one could rely on a muscle that other your loved one was present. But he being alone was unable to assist or sort of last on the line even some of them. But someone went and informed Fatima how the alert Well, the household, Fatima who the alarm has a little girl came running. It was so heavy that the prophets of the law it was and could not rise from his frustration. So she came and she pushed that filth and that after birth of the she camel away and off the bat for

01:00:37--> 01:01:04

some of the law, I'd even sell them. And then she stood there cursing and abusing these chieftains of corporations who are actually falling over each other in laughter and this was all the doing of a more gentle that's just one despicable example. Or one example of his despicable behavior and his personal bitterness and enmity towards a sort of law, some of the law or legal some of them. He was the parallel of

01:01:06--> 01:01:12

Abdullah had nobody even a civil. So in Medina you had underlined or even a fellow

01:01:13--> 01:01:26

who was a bitter opponent and a personal opponent of the sort of law, some of the love and evil some of them and in Makkah, you had a little gel. On another occasion, this was earlier on abou gel came out.

01:01:28--> 01:01:31

And he saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam performing Salah.

01:01:36--> 01:01:47

And he warned and said, I don't ever want you to pray in this manner again, in a mustard in the in the sacred presence of the machine.

01:01:51--> 01:02:08

Mr. Muslim and others relates that when he saw him again, he repeatedly had forbidden the profits of the law hiding who salutes pray and warned him that don't you dare pray here. So Abu Jamal once said that if I ever see Mohammed praying Salah again here,

01:02:10--> 01:02:20

then I will stamp on his neck with my feet. I will crush his neck with my feet and I will rub his face in the dust.

01:02:26--> 01:02:32

So on on the subsequent occasion, the prophets alarm it was most commonly praying Salah

01:02:33--> 01:02:47

I will general saw him came and scolded him saying did I not warn, never to pray again. So on this occasion, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam exchanged words with him and threatened.

01:02:49--> 01:02:55

And I will General said in reply, or Mohammed, what do you threaten me with?

01:02:56--> 01:03:12

What do you threaten me with? Do you not see that in this whole valley, ie between the hills of Mecca? When they used to say in this valley, they met Makkah the value of Mecca. So he said, Do you not see that in this entire valley IE of Makkah? I am the one

01:03:13--> 01:03:19

with the greatest support and with the greatest assembly of men behind.

01:03:21--> 01:03:23

So do you know what what do you threaten me with?

01:03:26--> 01:03:45

So he said that on one occasion. So on this occasion when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was praying, he went up to him and said, Did I not warn you that you shouldn't be praying here. And then he went to attack the prophets on love it or some of them. Those who are present all of a sudden saw him

01:03:46--> 01:04:27

throwing his arms up in front and hastily beating retreats and throwing up his arms as a form of protection before himself. So they asked him what happened. You said you were going to crush Mohammed's neck with your feet and or stamp on his neck with your feet and you were going to rub his face in the dirt. So what happened? Why did you retreat in that manner, throwing up your arms to protect yourself. So do you not see what I see is that when I raised my hands and move towards Mohammed, I suddenly saw a trench of fire between myself and him. And I saw a whole house

01:04:28--> 01:04:31

with wings. He saw creatures with wings,

01:04:33--> 01:04:35

said I see all these with wings.

01:04:37--> 01:04:48

On that occasion, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, had he touched the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the angels would have seized him piece by piece

01:04:49--> 01:04:51

latos law

01:04:52--> 01:04:56

the angels would have smashed and seized him limb by limb.

01:04:58--> 01:04:59

So it was after that

01:05:00--> 01:05:09

occasion that law reveal these verses of sort of demand. So, although specifically these remaining verses are about

01:05:12--> 01:05:36

he may have been the cause of Revelation, but the lesson is universal and eternal. So, the warnings given here or the good message given here, both are equally applicable to us in this day and age, and what are the law says gun law in Santa leota may indeed man transgressors.

01:05:37--> 01:05:38

Roger stone,

01:05:39--> 01:05:45

because he sees himself as being independent, I independence of a lot.

01:05:46--> 01:05:53

Again, this has to do with him. So let's use him as an example. Why was a Buddha what led us

01:05:55--> 01:06:27

to be so bitter in his opposition, a man of undeniable intelligence and wisdom, so much older he was given the title of will hacker, father of wisdom, a man so a student's politically, a man so intelligent, what caused him to behave so despicably what blinded him to the truth of the Koran? What blinded him to the beauty of the character of the messenger some of the lie that he was so bitter in his opposition to him? Well,

01:06:29--> 01:06:30

the love of wealth,

01:06:32--> 01:06:34

the level of power that comes with wealth,

01:06:35--> 01:06:42

and the arrogance, that clouds a person's mind and his judgment, because of wealth.

01:06:44--> 01:06:44

That was it.

01:06:46--> 01:06:50

Allah mentions a universal truth. Good luck cullerton in Santa Leah,

01:06:52--> 01:07:09

Natan de man transgressors because he sees himself as independent. And the meaning of seeing oneself as independent is to do with that's the translation of a southerner. Those of you who know Arabic you know that Alinea honey means rich, wealthy. And

01:07:11--> 01:07:13

Lina means what? Again, wealth.

01:07:15--> 01:07:23

But the word originally doesn't seem mean wealth. So much, you actually means independence.

01:07:29--> 01:07:32

This is why one verse of the Quran Allah says,

01:07:33--> 01:07:48

Yeah, you're not suitable for para la, la Hola, honey, you need our people, you are wrong, you are in need of Allah, you are dependent on Allah. And Allah, He is the one

01:07:50--> 01:08:39

who is self sufficient and independent. So honey originally doesn't mean rich. It means independent, someone who is not dependent on anybody else. But obviously when a person acquires wealth, they do become independent. So that's the corollary between the two Otherwise, the knee originally means independent. And here as well it means when men sees himself as independent, then he grows as and graces, he becomes self important, he becomes delusional. And the greater the wealth, the more delusional a person becomes, until he transgresses and the meaning of transgress here cullerton in Santa little Ha. Again, for those of you who know Arabic, leotard, originally refers to rising,

01:08:39--> 01:08:40

Dorian means

01:08:42--> 01:09:02

rising to rise. And when a person rises above his station, then he is transgressing beyond his limits. When a person rises above his true rank and station, then he is overreaching is stretching.

01:09:05--> 01:09:34

That's the original meaning of your thought. And therefore, a simpler translation could be transgressors. Man transgressors when he becomes rich, he may not necessarily be rich, but the monk because that's what the meaning of is determine the meaning of a southerner is when he sees himself as being independent. The moment man reaches a stage whereby he feels that he has sufficient wealth and sufficient means to be independent. That is the point when

01:09:35--> 01:09:48

wealth begins to corrupt and wealth does corrupt. We may deny it. We may actually find this offensive. We may find it very uncomfortable.

01:09:49--> 01:09:56

facts and the truth that wealth corrupts wealth corrupts without daps and corrupts.

01:09:57--> 01:09:58

We see it

01:10:00--> 01:10:05

empirical evidence around us in is in history. In fact, infection.

01:10:08--> 01:10:09

Wealth corrupts.

01:10:11--> 01:10:19

And most importantly, the poor arm tells us in a very graphic detail how wealth corrupts.

01:10:20--> 01:10:31

It makes a person delusional. And I'll explain this in thorough detail in sort of the castle and in sort of, sort of Romans. Just to give you an example unhappen with the castle

01:10:34--> 01:10:41

rivalry, one upmanship, vying with one another, trying to outdo one another, the gaffer.

01:10:43--> 01:10:46

All of this has distract.

01:10:47--> 01:10:52

Truth is, you will never learn how to dominate mahaveer until you visit the great

01:10:55--> 01:10:59

wealth will never satisfies the acquisition of wealth.

01:11:00--> 01:11:14

I mentioned it in sort of Homer's I won't go into detail on suffice, but that reference refer to these sorts for further detail. What does the law same sort of Hamza weighed on liquidity homeopathy, lomasa. Allah, the German army, mala?

01:11:16--> 01:11:17

mala who

01:11:23--> 01:11:26

won't be unto every backbiting defense.

01:11:29--> 01:11:34

He who gathers wealth word and counts it enumerates

01:11:36--> 01:11:53

as the level of wealth are always counted, yes, someone no matter who he thinks that his wealth will give him eternal life. The urn says it, wealth actually makes a person so delusional, that what makes him believe that he has become immortal.

01:11:57--> 01:12:13

Unless he's governor Lumumba, then never far from wealth making man immortal. Never leave him within the field. Most assuredly he shall be cast and thrown into the crusher.

01:12:15--> 01:12:17

What's the crusher the fire on Jan?

01:12:19--> 01:12:21

incinerator, the crusher.

01:12:23--> 01:12:27

Today's Friday, we've been encouraged to recite sort of regularly

01:12:29--> 01:12:33

every Friday and in Sudoku cafe Allah mentions a story of two men.

01:12:34--> 01:12:36

One of them was rich, the other one was poor.

01:12:38--> 01:12:45

So the rich one took the poor one on a tour of his riches, his lambs, his orchards vineyards.

01:12:46--> 01:12:47

So last thing,

01:12:49--> 01:12:54

barley Asahi, he will you have it all up thirimanne comano was enough.

01:12:57--> 01:13:08

So whilst he was taking his poor friend or companion, on a tour of his riches as estates, his orchard has been yards his property and displaying his wealth.

01:13:11--> 01:13:18

We have the first flash of arrogance. He said to his companion, and the UK federal minca man.

01:13:20--> 01:13:31

I am greater in wealth than you are. Whereas Donna Ferrara, and I'm mightier and more numerous of people than you are.

01:13:32--> 01:13:35

I've got more backing, got more men

01:13:38--> 01:13:39

got more support.

01:13:42--> 01:13:48

That's what I was saying as well. In modern terms, I've got a bigger crew got a bigger gang.

01:13:49--> 01:13:52

I can call them more support. I've got more men.

01:13:54--> 01:13:55

I've got more muscle.

01:13:56--> 01:14:09

So the first flash of arrogance and the Oklahoman commander, I am richer than you. I'm wealthier than you I've got more wealth than you have. One. Then he said whereas Donna Faraj, I might hear in numbers and you are

01:14:11--> 01:14:14

a Levin says, See how it progresses very beautiful,

01:14:15--> 01:14:20

beautiful in the sense that the message is delivered in such a sublime manner

01:14:23--> 01:14:24

with a halogen light the whole argument and

01:14:26--> 01:14:28

then the man entered his garden

01:14:29--> 01:14:31

while he was running full to the soul,

01:14:32--> 01:14:39

and then surveying his estates, he said, Mark oven and to be the head of the heat oven.

01:14:40--> 01:14:44

I do not think that all of this will ever perish.

01:14:47--> 01:14:51

Then it progresses. The next verse

01:15:01--> 01:15:02

Muslims.

01:15:04--> 01:15:08

And I don't think that the final hour of judgments will ever occur.

01:15:10--> 01:15:11

See how it progresses,

01:15:12--> 01:15:14

then next progression

01:15:15--> 01:15:21

if it does occur, so see how it goes. I don't think this will all ever perish.

01:15:22--> 01:15:26

But for argument's sake, let's concede that it does perish.

01:15:28--> 01:15:35

I don't think that our of gentleman's will ever come. If it does come, fine. Why don't you read it to me.

01:15:37--> 01:15:59

If I if it does occur, the final hour of judgment, and all of this just perish. And the truth is, I am so important to my Lord, they find ever returned, if I am ever returned to my Lord, not guaranteed, if I want to enter, if I am ever returned to my law, then I shall see even more than all of this over there.

01:16:01--> 01:16:02

A gentleman in Hammond.

01:16:03--> 01:16:06

Allah will give me my Lord will give me more than he has ever given me.

01:16:09--> 01:16:16

See how it progresses all of this to do with wealth? There's a message in there, wealth corrupts.

01:16:17--> 01:16:20

Wealth makes a person delusional.

01:16:22--> 01:16:23

What makes a person black

01:16:25--> 01:16:30

wealth destroys marriages, partnerships, relationships.

01:16:32--> 01:16:36

entire families, Father turns against children turn against parents.

01:16:39--> 01:16:48

Husbands and wives turn against each other but Lisa not blood relations, but daughters will turn against their mothers sons will turn against their fathers because of it.

01:16:52--> 01:16:56

Wealth is corrosive, corrupting, makes person delusional.

01:16:58--> 01:17:00

It makes a person transgress.

01:17:01--> 01:17:19

I've covered these topics before in sort of the Bahamas or in sort of a theme of the UK there will be themed in sort of the castle we've done all of these over the past few months refer to them. I'll suffice with this gorilla in the room Sonali at the bar in may indeed man transgressors because he sees himself as independent as rich.

01:17:21--> 01:17:30

But last, man should never think of himself as dependent why, in a lot of bekerja indeed, until your Lord is the final return.

01:17:31--> 01:17:44

wealth will not make a person immortal, and to Allah will be your return, then, are eternally young, how many of us have you seen one who prevents a servant servant here is the profits of the lottery.

01:17:46--> 01:17:48

Have you seen one who prevents the servants when he prays that was

01:17:50--> 01:17:57

sort of our first tries to explain in a good way to double general and his lives?

01:17:59--> 01:18:04

Initially there's no warning initially is have you seen one who prevents a servant's when you

01:18:06--> 01:18:11

are either in gamma and Hooda Amara taqwa This is actually an address to Abuja.

01:18:12--> 01:18:14

And people of his ilk

01:18:16--> 01:18:17

that do not see

01:18:19--> 01:18:22

that when he is praying, maybe maybe

01:18:24--> 01:18:26

he's actually on some guidance.

01:18:28--> 01:18:29

And what he is saying,

01:18:30--> 01:18:40

is an instruction to good is a call to good. It's a call to self consciousness to God consciousness to taqwa.

01:18:43--> 01:18:59

Then the verse continues, now it switches again to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, all right, do you not see? Or have you seen incredible with the wonder if he doesn't accept this message? beats that what does he do if he rejects? What the one Latin terms away?

01:19:01--> 01:19:10

I will jab at me Alan bit in the light era. Does he not know that Allah sees and watches everything? How dare he threaten you?

01:19:12--> 01:19:13

Or messenger of Allah

01:19:14--> 01:19:31

gulla never, if he does not assist in his opposition and in his threats, the learner in them even if he does not assist them, let us foreign bin Masseria, we shall most assuredly Seize him by the fall off

01:19:32--> 01:19:59

nicely, it means we fall off the front hairs. And that's an allegory and a reference to the front part of the head. Traditionally, when people would be grabbed and seized and humbled, they would often be pulled by their front hair and draft so that they would refer to that as season someone by the forelock. But the nasty originally means a hair the front, but then that was later

01:20:00--> 01:20:08

meant to refer to the whole forehead. So we shall see Him by the fall archive the forehead in

01:20:09--> 01:20:16

disgrace and in humiliation and aspiring to NASA. And what kind of forehead is this? What kind of head does he have?

01:20:17--> 01:20:21

Not any head. Now see it in God the button called

01:20:23--> 01:20:27

a sinful Gaza line, deceitful forehead. That's

01:20:30--> 01:20:31

not how he was.

01:20:33--> 01:20:45

And remember he threatened the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or did he say just like that man of God. This is what wealth does. It makes a man delusional it gives him a false illusions of self grand power.

01:20:48--> 01:21:14

The man said to his companion in SoCal Gas. Well as an author, I'm richer the new world as Donna Faraj and I mightier in men than you are. And that's what will gel said as well. To the prophets of Allah love it who sort of when you mentioned the Prophet sallallahu some some mild of character, but will gel with towards him and push that one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually had words with him in fact

01:21:15--> 01:21:22

so we'll just have to know Mohammed What do you threaten me with you are about one man. Do you not see that in this whole valley?

01:21:24--> 01:21:27

I am the one a thorough Nadia I'm the one of the greatest.

01:21:29--> 01:21:31

I can call upon the greatest support

01:21:32--> 01:21:34

is goons and is armed man.

01:21:35--> 01:21:37

So last days here,

01:21:38--> 01:21:40

we shall seize him by the forelock

01:21:41--> 01:21:50

a sinful lying deceitful forelock. When we do so, failure to honor the lesson call his gang, let him call his assembly

01:21:51--> 01:21:53

let him call his council

01:21:54--> 01:22:14

center that was urbania. We should also summon support, not that law needs it. But like for like as an image. He wants to call his gang. He wants to call his support his henchmen, his cronies and his goons center that was ivania We shall call the guardian angels of hell

01:22:16--> 01:22:20

which we'll call the infernal guards. There's ivania.

01:22:22--> 01:22:35

Then lions of Sora by turning the province under the law, it was dismissible can never not, do not obey Him, He tells you don't pray or messenger of Allah you pray.

01:22:37--> 01:22:43

And most importantly, allowances may never learn to do not obey Him, what should

01:22:45--> 01:23:13

and prostrates walk and draw clubs and that's why I mentioned that never is a person closer to Allah than when he is when falling into frustration, therefore, make excessive your do are in such that when a person is humbling himself and frustration at the lowest point is actually closest to Allah such, therefore,

01:23:14--> 01:23:17

prostrate and draw close in your frustration.

01:23:18--> 01:24:03

With this, we come to the end or sort of Anak. And do remember that this is one of the verses of such the prostration. And so do not forget to perform such as the lower the prostration of recitation as it's known, and will either hold the alarm or inquiry later relates that prophets in the La Liga, most of them he would recite this verse and he would perform the frustration of recitation. So do not forget to perform the such dilemma. With this we come to the end or sort of Allah. As I said, it consists of two parts mainly, the first part was revealed at the very beginning of the revelation of the Quran. The first five verses marked the beginning of the Holy Quran, and

01:24:03--> 01:24:24

this process continued for approximately 23 years. The second part of the surah second 14 set of 14 verses was revealed in Makkah, again in the early years, but sometime after the revelation on the first line, and primarily they deal with Apple gel, but it's not just about Apple gel. He's the cause of the revelation. He's the

01:24:26--> 01:24:38

supreme example of such behavior. But anyone who follows an oval jells footsteps, anyone who adopts the same behavior, anyone who shares the same characteristics should

01:24:39--> 01:24:59

take heed of these verses. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala enables us to understand we are lawmakers amongst those who appreciate the words of the holder and who are able to act on them or some of the law or some of the manner after he was going to be human while he was in permaculture.
