Episode Notes

Surat Falaq is considered to be one of the most recited Surahs of the Noble Quraan. It is regarded as an extremely virtuous and blessed Surah and it is one of the best surats ever to be revealed. The Prophet SAW says, Allah has revealed two surahs to me this night, the likes of which have never been seen before. They are Surat Nas and Surat Falaq’.

Along with lessons and wisdom, these surat also have to protect, guarding and preserving qualities. For this reason, the Prophet SAW himself would seek refuge in Allah from the evil eye of men and Jinn by reciting these two surahs.

This particular surah begins with mention of daybreak and the evils of all that Allah has created. The subsequent verses are about the evils of the night, witchcraft, sorcery and magic. The surah is concluded with the mention of the evil and disastrous effects of envy.

Appreciate and value the words of Allah by listening to a detailed exegesis of this surah. By developing a deep understanding of this surah and its application our worship will become more meaningful.

Ibrahim in

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

respects listeners.

00:01:22--> 00:01:27

This is our first lesson of the seed. Normally, every week, we do

00:01:29--> 00:01:30

commentary of

00:01:33--> 00:01:43

a sort of Sahabi the abridged version of Sahil Hardy, better known as a digital city and they have Ethan jammies.

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

We've started a new program of

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

the CEO once a month. And

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

being a commentary on the holy book.

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

The word of the last panel

00:02:03--> 00:02:06

I thought we'd begin from the end of the

00:02:08--> 00:02:26

counter intuitively not from the beginning, for the simple reason that most people are familiar with the final smaller sorts of the program, as they are often recited on a daily basis in prayer and otherwise.

00:02:29--> 00:02:32

So today, we begin with the seed of sort of unfettered,

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

which is actually the penultimate

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

second last sort of the

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

number 113 rather than the final.

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

And there's a reason for that

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

pseudo to follow,

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

which we all know

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

regime law

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

and shall remain till the end.

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

This surah

00:03:08--> 00:03:16

can be considered the first half of a set of the final two sorts. So, the sutra

00:03:17--> 00:03:23

and the final sort of mass are deeply connected.

00:03:26--> 00:03:34

Sort of infinite has five verses sort of the mass of six verses and these are 11 verses in total.

00:03:35--> 00:03:48

We can almost consider these 11 verses to be the verses of a single surah which has been divided into two parts. There are other sorts of armor as well that are similar

00:03:50--> 00:03:53

sort of the Lucha and sort of a mesh.

00:03:54--> 00:04:03

Also, of course, they are two distinct and separate students in terms of their content. The

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

What am I have almost considered both of them to be two halves of one Sora sort of a measure and sort of both do with the cedar

00:04:16--> 00:04:22

and the personal character and life of the sort of law, some of the law highly similar.

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

Sort of Bara

00:04:29--> 00:04:40

to healing the the inner game. So sort of Barra famously doesn't have Bismillah at at its beginning. And there are many explanations for that. But one of the

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

preferred explanations is quite simple. Is that some of the Sahaba it'll be a lot easier than it was not a fan of the loved one. They did not consider sort of Bara to be a distinct sorter. Rather it was a continuation of the previous

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

So, with a break in between. So these are just some other examples. So suitable for sort of the mass, they can be considered two halves of one actual Sora. Even though to all intents and purposes they are recorded as being two distinct sorts of the quorum, and this will become clearer as we actually go through the meanings of these verses, they are deeply interconnected. So rather than beginning with sort of the mass, we have to begin with sort of un*

00:05:34--> 00:05:44

so sort of the polar opposite would have been fed up Lucia masala commercial in our cabin Sharon, filler awkward, amin Chava has it in either has it

00:05:46--> 00:05:54

the name of Sora and Fennec has been taken from the very first verse aloud with a bit of Bill.

00:05:56--> 00:06:20

And we need to remember that these names given to the supplements are simply titles, and tax and labels. So a single word from the entire surah is often employed merely to tag and label the surah and to identify it.

00:06:22--> 00:06:49

But the tag and label do not necessarily reflect the overall theme, and subject matter and contents of the surah. And that's true for almost every single sort of entire or an, for example, the longest surah is sort of the Bukhara, which occupies three and a half parts of the 30 parts of the Koran. And it covers a range of topics from the history of the

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

history of various peoples, including

00:06:56--> 00:06:59

It also includes laws.

00:07:00--> 00:07:05

In fact, it includes much history beginning with the creation of Satan, Adam alayhis salam

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

contains the contains various other stories, the history of evil, the children of Israel, meaning the Israelites, three of three tribes of whom lived in Medina with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:07:25--> 00:07:45

And apart from history, the sort of Baccarat contains so many different topics, laws, expectations, advice, and yet despite a range of topics, the soul has been named sort of the bacara, meaning the cow, which is simply one word taken from one story in this

00:07:46--> 00:08:04

very long and huge surah. So these names and of the sorts are mainly tags and labels, they don't reflect the overall theme or the contents and subject matter of the surah in question, there are just simply tags and labels.

00:08:06--> 00:08:15

So, the name suitable for the word Fatah has been taken from the very first verse, which I will shortly explain and Phonak

00:08:17--> 00:08:21

originally means a fissure, a split

00:08:23--> 00:08:24


00:08:25--> 00:08:26

a separation.

00:08:28--> 00:08:29


00:08:30--> 00:08:50

since it means these things, the word Philip can actually be used for many different things. The word fun up also means creation, just the whole of creation. But the preferred meaning in this context of the surah is the daybreak the crack of dawn.

00:08:54--> 00:09:06

So suitable for the surah of the daybreak. But again, that's just a tag and a label. We begin with the first verse of the surah. All animals have been fed up.

00:09:07--> 00:09:08


00:09:10--> 00:09:13

I take refuge with the Lord of the daybreak.

00:09:15--> 00:09:17

This is the first verse of the song.

00:09:18--> 00:09:19


00:09:20--> 00:09:37

as I said, it should be considered the first half of a set of two sort sort of the fun of them sort of the mass before commenting on the first verse and beyond. slaps mentioned the importance of the sorter, and some of its virtues some of their virtues.

00:09:41--> 00:09:45

amantha Baron de la de la has related ahead, Ethan is

00:09:46--> 00:09:56

an ulcer and margin will always set from 7am to live and there will be a lot one who say is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:09:58--> 00:09:59


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

Allah has revealed to sudents to me this not the like of which have never been seen before. And in one narration, who's like Allah has never revealed to me before. And the two secrets are out there that would have been Fanuc and blouses would have been asked

00:10:21--> 00:10:26

in another Hadith related by him, I'm hacking in Islam, from say the name

00:10:27--> 00:10:36

of the Allahu I'm famous companion. He says, once I was traveling with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, between Jaffa and

00:10:39--> 00:10:40

these are two

00:10:43--> 00:11:25

wise closer to Medina and Jaffa is further away from Medina, closer to the Red Sea. And we actually covered the topic of Jaffa in Qatar and hatch in when I commented on some of the had the fan, I mentioned that today. Jaffa is not known it's known better as the modern town or city of town. So I put the alarm says I was traveling with the prophets and some of them between Java and a word of word is famously known as the burial place of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his mother. So in this head is related by hacking in Islam. So

00:11:27--> 00:11:41

the law says I was traveling with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam, between Java and when suddenly we were beset by a very severe storm. And we were enveloped by darkness,

00:11:43--> 00:11:51

because of the gravity of the situation, and the intense storm and the sudden darkness that envelop them,

00:11:52--> 00:12:10

awkward moment of the alarm, who says that a sort of loss of the law he was sending them began reciting verses, seeking refuge with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the verses he began reciting were, well I was a bit of an openness. He then turned to me

00:12:12--> 00:12:12

and said, I will

00:12:14--> 00:12:24

seek refuge with Allah with these two verses, for there is no one who has sought better refuge with ALLAH than with these two verses.

00:12:27--> 00:12:38

Then put an arm around the alarm to say is that the problem I even heard the profit some of the law it was sudden them thereafter leading us in prayer with these two verses in front of

00:12:40--> 00:12:55

us. In fact, this was quite customary with the Prophet sallallahu I think some of them many different companions all relate that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite ours would have been for a couple of minutes.

00:12:58--> 00:13:31

As a preference in many different prayers. He's been known to have recited these two sorts when traveling even fetch, even liquids his noble habit to recite extremely long salts in federal solar, whilst traveling even in federal, he would recite sort of the follow up on sort of the mass in Muslim sort of Confederate sort of the mass in with risala sort of been fed up and sort of the mass. So these were preferred servants of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, for reciting in prayer.

00:13:32--> 00:13:33

And then,

00:13:35--> 00:13:44

in another Hadith related by Mr. Mohammed and his Muslim ID from thing with Miranda rhodiola. One, he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded me

00:13:46--> 00:13:49

but orapa recites

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

the moral with that

00:13:54--> 00:13:55

the moral with that

00:13:57--> 00:14:01

is a name given by the prophet similar law, it was similar

00:14:02--> 00:14:03

to three students of

00:14:05--> 00:14:11

all law had sought to the class with our bill Fennec horribleness.

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

And there's another name also quite common in Islamic literature. And why with other than, the

00:14:23--> 00:14:26

more without means the protecting

00:14:28--> 00:14:32

the ones that protect the guarding protective ones.

00:14:33--> 00:14:57

And unwire with a term means the two guarding and protecting one's. So when we say with a term, we refer to two guarding and protective solids, namely sort of a follow up and sort of the mass, but on occasions and in fact, these are famously known as Mr. With a Dan, you may have heard them

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

as a model with a thing

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

Whether you say Mr with a thing, or Mr with a Dan both refer to sort of in front of them sort of mass. But as in this hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:15:14--> 00:15:35

advised the diameter of the Allah to recite the malware that which is a plural, the protective and guarding ones, so the protecting and guarding ones refers to three swords. Well, hawala had pulled out with a bit of a Fennec and called our bananas. So

00:15:38--> 00:15:50

Nana rhodiola says Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me or recite the motto without all Allahu Ahad would have been fed up and called us after every single Salah.

00:15:52--> 00:15:53


00:15:54--> 00:16:01

this is why it's so nice to include these three final students will algebra

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

class and the third last one

00:16:06--> 00:16:09

as part of our after each other.

00:16:10--> 00:16:29

And then again, in my humble in his Muslim relates a third very beautiful Hadith from the same companion opportu mannitol the alarm who says that one day I approached the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I grabbed his hand.

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

Well grabbed by took hold of his hand.

00:16:36--> 00:16:38

And I said to him, O Messenger of Allah,

00:16:40--> 00:16:46

manager to tell me what is the salvation of a believer?

00:16:48--> 00:16:55

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said is listen, what are your saqa they took what key Allah how to

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

guard your tongue.

00:16:59--> 00:17:03

Let your home confine you, and weep over your sin.

00:17:05--> 00:17:28

so awkward. Middle viola, Ramsay's eyes, approach the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I took hold of his hand. And I said, a messenger of Allah telling me what is the salvation of a believer? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replies that three things is the son I call you, sir, Yasaka they took what kiala How to

00:17:29--> 00:17:30

guard your tongue.

00:17:32--> 00:17:59

Let your home confine you. The meaning of let your home confine you is, do not venture out unnecessarily. Keep yourself to yourself, concern yourself with yourself, and what piano how to weep over your sense of autonomy. rhodiola continues, that, on the next occasion, when I saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

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

he took hold of my hand.

00:18:03--> 00:18:04

And he said to me, oh,

00:18:05--> 00:18:15

should I not inform you? Of the three best suits that have ever been revealed?

00:18:16--> 00:18:21

In the thorah? That indeed, is of all and the glorious? Or

00:18:23--> 00:18:28

should I not inform your three best thoughts that have been revealed in the Torah,

00:18:29--> 00:18:32

the scripture given see that our Messiah has set out

00:18:33--> 00:18:36

in the Injeel, the gospel of Satan, he sadly has stolen

00:18:37--> 00:18:49

and the Civil War, the Psalms of data that would allow his salon and the glorious or I should inform you of the three best suits that have been ever that have ever been revealed in any

00:18:50--> 00:19:07

divine scripture to any messenger. so awkward, middle the alarm, and he said, but he walked me out of sort of law, of course, my my father and mother be sacrificed for your sake, or messenger of Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, well, the whole law

00:19:08--> 00:19:09

in front of

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

us, and then he said, Oh,

00:19:14--> 00:19:24

do not ever forget these sort of bits. And do not ever let any nights come over you without having recited the three swords.

00:19:25--> 00:19:59

So optimal middle, the alarm says, ever since the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me never to forget them, I have never forgotten them. And ever since he told me that do not let tonight fall over you without having recited these three secrets. I have never ever let an act pass without having recited these three sorts of look around. And then the leaf continues about the Allah Who says on the third occasion, I saw the Prophet some of the love it was some of them. And this time when I approached him, I again took hold of his hand and I said, O Messenger of Allah.

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

Inform me of the virtuous deeds.

00:20:05--> 00:20:10

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again said three things to him, but we're

00:20:11--> 00:20:13

still mantapa

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

what are the manoharan?

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

What are our amends?

00:20:22--> 00:20:29

don't enjoy the relations of one who severs relations with you

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

and give to one who deprives you

00:20:34--> 00:20:40

and turn away and ignore, turn away from and ignore one who is unjust.

00:20:42--> 00:20:53

In all three final words of advice, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the loved one to have the upper hand to be the better one.

00:20:57--> 00:20:58

So cinema

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


00:21:02--> 00:21:19

said his relations with you, you join those relations, you bombed your relationship with him, and you honor the bond between you and him. And that's why I'm famous had a sort of last alarm it says, Lisa Lavasa will McAfee.

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

Well, I didn't know Watson and Lilly either.

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


00:21:27--> 00:21:34

seldom says that before, mentioned anything further about this for the just to remind ourselves that syllable

00:21:36--> 00:21:42

means the joining, and the bond of the relations of kin blood and family.

00:21:44--> 00:21:54

And syllable rhyme is a very noble and not just a noble, but noble concept, but it's actually an obligation in Islam.

00:21:55--> 00:22:00

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that Lisa was sort of ill McAfee

00:22:01--> 00:22:13

was the one joining and the one fulfilling the obligation of syllable rhyme in Islam is not one who merely reciprocates

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

I, if the other person

00:22:24--> 00:22:28

promotes a good relationship, and they bond

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

their relations and their link with

00:22:34--> 00:22:59

with me since then, if I keep good relations with them, I'm merely offering them the same that they have given to me. I Amelie reciprocating their bonding of relations with me. I'm not doing anything further or extra. So this much is not considered a noble virtue. In fact, it's an obligation upon them.

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

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, lay some laughs that have been in the carpet. The joiner is not the reciprocate. So one who simply reciprocates good relations and the bonding of kin blurred family relations is not a joiner in the sight of Allah

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

will lock in the losses and levy that

00:23:24--> 00:23:35

he says not leave the Walsall, the joiner, and the keeper of good relations is one who went other several relations with him. He Bond's them and he joins us.

00:23:37--> 00:23:49

So, this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the opposite of Nana rhodiola one cinnamon attack. Whoever says their relations with you, you bombed your relations with him

00:23:51--> 00:24:00

without the muck, and whether deprives you in distribution or in gifts and grants, then you give to him

00:24:02--> 00:24:03

What are others

00:24:04--> 00:24:13

and whoever oppresses your is unjust towards you, then rather than retaliate, you overlook and turn away.

00:24:17--> 00:24:39

So these were the final three words of advice and this brings to an end the Hadeeth but the main part of the Hadees was a middle part in which it was seldom said when taking his handle rock bass Should I not inform you have the three best suits ever revealed in the Torah, and in the in G and in the war and in the glorious for an

00:24:40--> 00:24:50

awkward moment of the alarm said my my parents be sacrificed for your sake, of course our messenger of Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah had brought up in front of

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


00:24:53--> 00:25:00

In another video again, continuing with the virtues of these two swords are our bourbon Fanuc and

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

pulled out

00:25:02--> 00:25:13

of the lightning Habib are the law and is a companion. And in my humble again in this Muslim relates from Abdullah makabe. But of the Allahu anhu says that one day

00:25:16--> 00:25:31

again, there was a storm. It was dark, and we were missing the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam waiting for him to lead us in prayer. So since he never arrived, we actually went out looking for him.

00:25:32--> 00:25:42

And he says, I found him I'm delighted. And Kobe says, I found. So when I found him in this darkness, he said to me,

00:25:43--> 00:25:44


00:25:46--> 00:26:26

I remained silent. I didn't say anything. And he said to me read again. I remained silent. I didn't say anything. Then for the third time, he said to me, read, acid or messenger of Allah, what should I read? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, read Allah, who Allah who I hope will, will follow and follow our openness. So and then he said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, LA, recite these three songs every morning, and every evening, thrice. In fact, the words are evening first. So recite these three songs

00:26:29--> 00:26:47

every evening and every morning, thrice. If you do, so, they will suffice you and protect you from everything. So again, this is another summer to recite out with a bit of Bill Falak for our business, and the addition of Hola Hola, hola.

00:26:48--> 00:26:55

After every solar and three times in the morning and three times in the evening.

00:26:57--> 00:27:01

Now, the reason the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:27:02--> 00:27:06

encouraged the recitation of these three secrets in particular

00:27:08--> 00:27:13

ones because they are the protecting, guarding preserving one

00:27:14--> 00:27:36

last crime or the other has revealed them in such a way. And they contain such qualities, that along with all the other blessings, and the lessons and wisdom, contained in these three sewers, they also have a very, they also have a protecting, guarding

00:27:38--> 00:28:02

quality. And, in fact, such that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wouldn't just recite that he wouldn't just encourage others to recite these suits for protection. He would actually recite them regularly himself to the extent that Imam Timothy, les relates it from say, the numbers, the law.

00:28:05--> 00:28:08

The law says that the

00:28:10--> 00:28:12

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:28:14--> 00:28:15

he would seek

00:28:18--> 00:28:29

refuge with ALLAH and protection through various means from the evil eye of men and the evil eye of Jim.

00:28:32--> 00:28:34

But when Allah has the Witcher revealed,

00:28:35--> 00:28:59

sort of, sort of the mass, he left everything else, and he would only recite these to sort of sort of the Falcon sort of the mass for protection. And this is why on the morning, shuttle the alarm on her relates, recorded by Manmohan Singh who so he as well as others, she says that each night when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam would retire to his bed,

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

he would recite all Allahu Ahad, pull out all the follow up, and all our business.

00:29:10--> 00:29:16

And then he would blow into his noble hands and rub his hands

00:29:17--> 00:29:20

all over his body beginning with the front parts.

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

You will do this each time.

00:29:27--> 00:29:36

And she also relates in another Hadees, again recorded by mojari, as well as others, that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would fall ill

00:29:40--> 00:29:40

he would

00:29:41--> 00:29:50

recite these three sorts of Allah who I had, when I was about a bill, Fennec algebra class, and then blowing on his

00:29:51--> 00:29:54

noble hands he would rub his body

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

to relieve himself of pain. And these were his three preferred swords

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

of the Quran, when I show the love on her continues that for the master

00:30:06--> 00:30:26

when his pain would become excessive, and he wouldn't be able to read or blow into the into his hands and rub himself himself, then I would do it for him. But she says so beautifully that I would recite, por la had all our verbal for our openness.

00:30:28--> 00:30:43

And then I would blow into his hands, not my hands. And then I would take his noble hand, and I will pass his hands over his body and a jar of Baraka saying, in the hope of seeking the blessing of his hand.

00:30:44--> 00:31:13

So, Shadow the love and how would diligently ensure that she would continue with the seminar the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and recite for him because he was unable to recite because of his excessive pain. However, she wouldn't blow into her own hands and rub her hands over his body. Rather, she would blow into his hands and then taking his noble hands she would guide his hand over his body.

00:31:14--> 00:31:19

Why would she do that or Jabara Kathy has seeking the blessing of his hand?

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

This is, the studies shows how the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam viewed him not just as a husband, but as a messenger of Allah.

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


00:31:35--> 00:31:37

very simple question here is,

00:31:38--> 00:31:42

you may have heard that I've mentioned only three soloists so far.

00:31:47--> 00:31:56

And yet, the common practice is to recite all Yeah, your whole coffee room as well.

00:32:01--> 00:32:04

So, why have I excluded

00:32:05--> 00:32:13

from the discussion so far? Because most people's practice history besides the four walls, as is commonly known?

00:32:17--> 00:32:33

Well, the truth is more aware that the protecting guarding ones are have been designated as these three in that had ease and all of the headings have just related to you. All of them clearly mentioned.

00:32:34--> 00:32:38

Only these three are the final two or law had

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

been asked or the final two.

00:32:44--> 00:32:49

class they don't mentioned earlier, your coffee room. So is that practice and founded now?

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


00:32:54--> 00:33:01

whole coffee room has been mentioned elsewhere. But the purpose for reciting qualia your whole coffee rune is different.

00:33:03--> 00:33:15

And that's why in Hadith related by nofal, well related bar on the authority of the companion nofal or the Allah has been recorded by various authors, including among the ban

00:33:16--> 00:33:24

that nofollow the alarm and approach the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said to him or messenger of Allah,

00:33:25--> 00:33:43

give me something to read when I retire to my bed. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, read well, yeah, your hunger for your own food minimum for in La Habra. tahmina Shahrukh he said read Alia yoga film, then go to sleep

00:33:47--> 00:33:55

for its meaning Kalia Sora Alia your coffee room is a renunciation of idolatry.

00:33:56--> 00:34:15

So the practice is established and it's in the summer of reciting Kriya Yoga through him before going to sleep. However, the reason for reciting Alia yoga throne is actually different from the recitation of Allah hawala or I have purple Falak. And

00:34:17--> 00:34:32

these three final swords are recited because they are regarded as being aware that the protective guarding preserving ones and the recitation of alia your coffee room, if you consider the meaning

00:34:34--> 00:34:41

is not so much because it says a garden protective one, but rather because it is

00:34:42--> 00:35:00

a renunciation of idolatry. So that is also recited at night before retiring, but for a very different reason. So there's no harm in combining all four. But what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would do himself and what he

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

advise and encourage most people to do in that how the eighth was the final three, and the recitation of Kalia ecocar throne has also been encouraged but for a different reason. But also be able Katherine does have protective

00:35:16--> 00:35:22

qualities as well. In one of these led by Mantovani from seasonality review a lot on

00:35:23--> 00:35:31

what happened see the value of the alarm per se is that we were once I was with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was praying summer

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


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

a scorpion bits him insula.

00:35:39--> 00:35:43

So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conclude his Salah, he said, learn and love and

00:35:45--> 00:36:00

laughter, suddenly and what an obeah but Allah curse the scorpion, it does not spare even someone praying sada or even the prophets of Allah then he told me that idea of the Allah and to fetch water and salt

00:36:01--> 00:36:38

so when water and salt was brought prophets in the law it was said to mix the salt and water and then he recited Alia you held coffee room. And that was a bit of fun up and come out with three swords, strength. Well, interestingly here what whole law wasn't recited, but Who wouldn't? Yeah, you hook it on, and the final two swords, the profits of the law, I think was one of them recited over the water, and rubbed it where the scorpion bites was, and you continue to read and blow over himself as he was

00:36:42--> 00:36:43

massaging his

00:36:44--> 00:36:51

part of his body where he was bit so he was reciting and blowing with these three swords. Well, yeah, you hook up and go out of

00:36:52--> 00:37:01

business. There are many other ahaadeeth which speak of the virtues of these three swords, but I'll suffice with this. Moving on with the actual commentary on I was a bit of beef.

00:37:02--> 00:37:05

The first verse, say,

00:37:06--> 00:37:09

I take refuge with the Lord of the daybreak

00:37:11--> 00:37:13

Daybreak the crack of dawn.

00:37:17--> 00:37:19

And if I can just translate the whole sorta

00:37:20--> 00:37:38

we can understand the rhythm and the continuity of meaning and the relationship between the different parts of the surah Allah says, Allah will say, I take refuge with the Lord of the daybreak

00:37:39--> 00:37:43

and shuttle him out Hello, from the evil of what he has created.

00:37:45--> 00:37:51

Amin sugary hearts in our water. And from the evil of the night when it's

00:37:52--> 00:37:54

pervades or when it gathers.

00:37:56--> 00:38:04

Woman shuttle in the first 30 filler awkward, and from the evil of those who blow into the knots,

00:38:05--> 00:38:11

or mean shoveling houses in either hazard, and from the evil of the envier when he nvis.

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

So in the first verse of last Say, say eyes take refuge with the Lord of the daybreak

00:38:20--> 00:38:25

Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Lord of everything, the whole of creation.

00:38:27--> 00:38:31

Just as Allah mentions right at the beginning of the Quran, Allah

00:38:33--> 00:38:44

Allah the main man Rahim molokhia within Allah says in the very first verse and 100, Allahu Akbar, Allah, demean, or Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

There is a very

00:38:49--> 00:38:54

unique connection between sort of the father and the final two sorts.

00:38:55--> 00:38:57

The sutras of the Quran

00:38:58--> 00:39:00

are not arranged haphazardly.

00:39:02--> 00:39:06

There is a rhythm and a certain structure.

00:39:07--> 00:39:38

Although it's very subtle, and the connection between the beginning and the end of the forum is in fact quite clear. A lot begins the Quran with the words and hamdulillah mean or Praise be to Allah The Lord of the worlds. Allah establishes and emphasizes His Lordship, his kingdom has ownership, his authority and his sovereignty over the whole universe. And then later in sort of

00:39:40--> 00:39:41

a law teaches us

00:39:42--> 00:39:43


00:39:44--> 00:39:56

Maliki or Medina law is not just the law of the universe, and the world on the world. Now, a lot has a lot of the universe and Allah is the Lord of the hereafter.

00:40:01--> 00:40:08

Speaking of the universals, you're gazing up the stars the other day with some of my students

00:40:10--> 00:40:11

was pointing out

00:40:12--> 00:40:22

the moon Well, everyone can see the moon but the, the planets of Jupiter and Venus, close to the moon, and Mars on the other side.

00:40:23--> 00:40:25

And we're just gazing at the stars.

00:40:27--> 00:40:28

And I mentioned that

00:40:29--> 00:40:34

astronomy Klee, we are told that in this one galaxy,

00:40:35--> 00:40:36

our solar system

00:40:38--> 00:40:39


00:40:42--> 00:40:54

a small solar system of just eight planets. We are, we on Earth are nine 3 million miles away from the sun. But the other planets of our solar system are hundreds of millions of miles away.

00:40:55--> 00:40:56

That was beyond us.

00:40:58--> 00:41:08

And our solar system is a system of planets revolving orbiting around one star,

00:41:09--> 00:41:11

just one star, the sun.

00:41:13--> 00:41:14

And our galaxy

00:41:16--> 00:41:19

has over 100 billion stars.

00:41:21--> 00:41:22

This is what we are told astronomy.

00:41:24--> 00:41:26

And there's not just one galaxy.

00:41:28--> 00:41:43

There are approximately 200 billion galaxies are on average, although our galaxy has 100 billion stars on average, there are approximately 200 billion stars in 200 billion galaxies.

00:41:46--> 00:41:49

And the distances are unbelievable, between

00:41:52--> 00:41:58

unimaginable distances trillions and trillions and trillions of miles. And these are just between

00:42:00--> 00:42:35

stars and galaxies, let alone the whole universe. And having discussed that I mentioned alas age essays about stars and planetary bodies, they in the summer adonia busine, at the Yoga Camp, and we have adored and beautified the worldly sky, with the beauty and the ornament of heavenly bodies. Go back it doesn't necessarily mean stars. It means heavenly bodies, which includes stars, planets, and all the other

00:42:36--> 00:42:39

collections and clusters of stars, no matter what names we may give them.

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

So Allah seasons in the summer, adunni, Abba, Xena tilicho our cube. And verily we have adorn the worldly sky with the beauty of the heavenly bodies. What that means is that

00:42:58--> 00:43:27

the known universe, as we understand it, with its billions of stars in each galaxy, and with billions of galaxies, and beyond all of this, what we know and what we yet don't know, is still confined, within the lowest heavy work lowest, when the sky, above which there are six further skies, and six for the heavens. So haven

00:43:29--> 00:43:37

law says, the mean the Lord of the worlds, and when we say worlds, we shouldn't just think on a small scale.

00:43:39--> 00:43:40

As I mentioned,

00:43:41--> 00:43:46

this is just one world, as we understand it's one universe.

00:43:48--> 00:44:07

And then last is Manny kiyomi, the Master of the Day of Judgment, Allah His Lord and Master of this world, map of worlds of the hereafter. And then last year can attribute what you're going to study later. Teaching is that when you should pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there should be two things.

00:44:08--> 00:44:18

And this is something we affirm every day in prayer. It is only you that we worship, what you're going to study in and is only you, from whom you seek help.

00:44:19--> 00:44:26

These themes of the sovereignty and authority of last panel with Allah over creation.

00:44:28--> 00:44:34

One and to the obligation of allows creation and humanity

00:44:35--> 00:44:38

to seek assistance

00:44:39--> 00:44:51

only from Allah, and to worship only Allah and to turn only to Allah. The central themes of sort of the Fatiha are repeated and sort of the follow up and sort of gymnasts

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

and a lot of beginners who have been fed up say, I take refuge with the Lord of daybreak.

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

Life is not just the lord of daybreak.

00:45:02--> 00:45:12

The verses continue and sort of the mass we learn. Well, I would have been asked moluccan NASS, either NASS, Allah has a Lord of mankind. Allah has a Lord

00:45:13--> 00:45:17

of creation, Allah has a Lord of daybreak.

00:45:19--> 00:45:47

And then just as a lot of teachers as unsuitable fat, how that we should only turn to Allah in worship, and we should only turn to Allah to seek assistance and soccer. Similarly, Allah has all emphasizes that in the final two slots, that we for our protection, can only turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala. To seek refuge, we can only turn to Allah to seek protection, we will only find protection with a lot of searching. And that's what's mentioned here. So

00:45:48--> 00:45:54

say I take refuge with the Lord of daybreak. What's the significance of Daybreak

00:45:56--> 00:46:10

Daybreak simply the crack of dawn. Now, there is a connection between all of the verses of sort of the front up and sort of the mass and they reflect a greater theme mentioned in sort of perfect hair as well.

00:46:12--> 00:46:15

Which is turning to Allah Subhana.

00:46:18--> 00:46:37

Allah is the one who delivers a lot is the one who saves. And Allah is the one who extracts people. As one verse of the Quran says, men of Allah, Martha in a move from not one single darkness of darkness is two lines.

00:46:38--> 00:47:02

And this is the signal This is the imagery, in daybreak, just as the darkness of the night fades, and soon disappears, with the crack of dawn, and the appearance of the morning lands, not disappears, along with all of its dangers, along with its evils, along with its threats

00:47:03--> 00:47:26

and lurking hazards, and people feel safe in the morning labs. This was even mentioned later on in the verse. Similarly, Allah subhanho, the morning Daybreak signifies the clarity, the light, the dawn, the daybreak and the morning of religion.

00:47:28--> 00:48:03

And the morning of laws guide. Those who turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala for guidance for protection. Just as Allah delivers people to the safety of the day, after daybreak from the darkness ism the dangers of the night, turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah will result in the deliverance of people from misguidance from waywardness from deviation, and from the dangers and darknesses of other ways to the light and the safety of Allah subhanho wa Taala as hidin guidance and his religion and

00:48:06--> 00:48:14

this is why when the I told the students that if you want to give a title to today's surah, and talk,

00:48:15--> 00:48:18

call it from darknesses to

00:48:21--> 00:48:22

not just simply daybreak,

00:48:24--> 00:48:26

from darknesses, to door

00:48:28--> 00:48:32

so what I was about to say I take refuge with the Lord of the daybreak,

00:48:33--> 00:48:41

shoveling my hammock from the evil of what he has created. Ultimately, whether it's good or bad, all creation,

00:48:42--> 00:48:45

everything is from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:48:46--> 00:48:57

So from the evil of what he has created, or maybe something has been either woke up and from the evil of the night, when it gathers it stock discovers

00:48:58--> 00:49:02

the meaning of maturity loss in either wakame is when the mind settles,

00:49:03--> 00:49:05

and the darkness

00:49:06--> 00:49:10

covers and blankets everything and it's pervasive.

00:49:12--> 00:49:17

Today, we may not be able to really tell much of a difference because of artificial lighting.

00:49:18--> 00:49:26

But move away from the city into a rural area, or visits most parts of the world where there isn't lights pollution,

00:49:27--> 00:49:33

and see feel and experience, the sounds

00:49:34--> 00:49:45

and the whispers of the knights and the dangers that are intrinsic to the knot, and which we instinctively as human beings feel.

00:49:46--> 00:49:51

We fear creepy crawlies, insects, predators, both humans and mammals.

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

We fear all manner of dangers, especially at night. This is instinctive in human beings.

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

We naturally feel safer during the day. And we do at night again, removing the fact of artificial lighting.

00:50:08--> 00:50:15

And this is why, if you recall that Hadith that I mentioned at the beginning, whenever there was darkness

00:50:16--> 00:50:32

if I'm hacking when he relates I had Ethan's muster that up from awkward middle, the allotment who says that I was traveling between Java and Java, and we were beset by darkness and a storm. What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam begin reciting? We'll all love what I had and

00:50:35--> 00:50:40

when the other Sahabi underlined alarm went out, looking for a sort of last alarm.

00:50:41--> 00:51:20

there was darkness. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him to read, we'd want these three sources and he said, read them thrice every morning and evening. They will protect you. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked what people should recite at night and without even being questioned when he encouraged people to recite at night, which sort of did he prefer at night again, or loggerhead? Well, our beliefs, our openness. In fact, in other Hadees Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has given us various words of advice of how to settle at night, there are etiquettes of sleeping, of retiring of resting

00:51:21--> 00:52:02

profits of the law, Marlene was disapproved of people gathering at night of wiling away the hours of the night in idle talk in summer, as it's been mentioned in the Hadeeth. In fact, his noble habit was to immediately retire after Isha Sala to the extent that he wouldn't even converse with his wives. On some occasions, he would, but on many occasions, he would just simply retire. If he needed to speak to his wives that had these days, he would speak otherwise he would retire immediately after Isha Salah. And the reason for this noble habits was that he would retire and then he would rise in the middle of the night for the hundreds.

00:52:03--> 00:52:15

So and this was his noble habits throughout, this was the norm, not the exception. So the night is a time to retire, to rest.

00:52:16--> 00:52:35

Sleep, and when doing so there are etiquettes to be observed, that our prayers to be recited for one's protection, because, undoubtedly, there are inherent dangers, and lurking hazards and perils in the night. This is why

00:52:37--> 00:53:16

I say I seek the I seek refuge with the Lord of the daybreak from the evil of what he has created. And from the evil of the night, when it's pervades AI in its darkness. And then the fourth thing, the fourth verse, Allah mentions are men shoving the furthest they feel awkward, and I see up and from the meaning I seek refuge with the Lord of the daybreak from what the fourth there says, woman shoveling enough for the rocket and from the evil of the ones who blow into knots. Now undoubtedly This is a clear reference to witchcraft

00:53:17--> 00:53:19

and nothing like that

00:53:20--> 00:53:31

the blower's it's a feminine word meaning the gender is feminine here, and literally would mean the those women who blow into the knots.

00:53:32--> 00:53:43

Now this is the meaning taken by most commentators, that women simply because it refers to witches, so and from the evil of witches who blow into the knots.

00:53:44--> 00:53:54

However, it can also mean simply souls because nuts the word soul knifes and Arabic is actually feminine, and the plural of enough snowfall, so unforce

00:53:55--> 00:54:01

also feminine. So it could mean which is and it could mean

00:54:03--> 00:54:16

songs from the evil of those souls, be they men or women, it doesn't make a difference from the evil of the souls that blow into knots. Now, as I said, this is a clear reference to witchcraft,

00:54:18--> 00:54:19


00:54:20--> 00:54:25

and sorcery. Now, the important question here is, what does the author

00:54:26--> 00:54:42

have to say about magic and sorcery? witchcraft? What does what do? You have to say? And Allah is actually telling us to seek refuge with him the Lord of the daybreak and the evil of those who blow into knots.

00:54:44--> 00:55:00

And in fact, the imagery is quite graphic. A lot just doesn't say from witches and warlocks or people who practice from sorceress, but rather those who specifically blow incantations and implications into knots in Australia.

00:55:02--> 00:55:03

Here's the famous question.

00:55:05--> 00:55:06

Is Magic true?

00:55:07--> 00:55:16

Does magic occur? Does magic have any effects? Is there any concept of sorcery, witchcraft and magic in Islam?

00:55:18--> 00:55:19


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

the Quran speaks of magic in more than one place. And that how these speaker match.

00:55:30--> 00:55:35

In fact, the Quran and the Hadith have a lot more to say about magic than most people imagine.

00:55:37--> 00:55:38

The viewers view of

00:55:40--> 00:55:52

Well, let's just hear what the court has to say. Here law has essays on Chevron and the fact that they feel awkward and from the evil of those souls who blow into knots.

00:55:57--> 00:56:07

In other verses of the Quran, Allah speaks about magic for instance, and sort of the bacara Allah Subhana hordaland are speaking about the people in Babylon.

00:56:10--> 00:56:13

Mountains of Allah Molokini, babila haruta Omar,

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


00:56:17--> 00:56:18


00:56:19--> 00:56:19


00:56:22--> 00:56:28

This begins with what terbaru mata to share pinata mukhisa a man woman a man What are

00:56:30--> 00:56:50

you on the moon NASA say? Well mountains Adam Allegheny babila haruto very long verse, we don't have time to go into complete detail. But hitting this verse Allah refers to a period during which people were tested and subjected to trial by the last panel data. And

00:56:52--> 00:57:01

the reference to silly man alayhis salaam is that certain people accused Saudi man alayhis salam of being a magician.

00:57:02--> 00:57:04

So Allah has the original says

00:57:05--> 00:57:28

woolmark, Guevara saw a man will show up in a gazebo. And so a man did not disbelieve. Rather, he was a devil's who disbelieved. So the context is about magic. But alas, Allah doesn't say silly man did not commit or did not indulge and dabble in sorcery. Allah simply say Soloman did not commit disbelief

00:57:30--> 00:57:32

because sorcery

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

can lead to disbelief.

00:57:40--> 00:57:44

And I don't say What magic can lead to disbelief.

00:57:45--> 00:58:04

And I don't say all magic has disbelief for the simple reason that we call many different things magic for instance, illusions or doing things simply as a gesture or a joke or as many magicians practice with the slights of the hand and dexterity of the hand.

00:58:07--> 00:58:26

That in itself may not necessarily constitute disbelief. But in any case, the saucer we refer to in these verses was clearly was clear disbelief. So one marker for a saw a man was a Samana. His man did not commit disbelief, right, it was a devil that committed disbelief. And then Allah mentions that

00:58:27--> 00:58:39

Allah mentions the reality of what happened, and that it had nothing to do with Solomon alayhis salaam, rather, it was to do with the people at a certain time, maybe a bill in ancient Babylon.

00:58:43--> 00:58:52

And that time, a lot of them say to them in Homer, you for raccoon he been on mad at your soldier, they would learn from these two angels,

00:58:54--> 00:59:01

such magic and sorcery with which they would actually drive a wedge and create a divide between husband and wife.

00:59:03--> 00:59:11

So remember that verse, Allah mentions sorcery in that verse. And then famously, Allah mentioned sorcery, in the story of say that I'm on Saturday.

00:59:13--> 00:59:18

Now, before I continue with these verses, what is the nature of magic?

00:59:19--> 00:59:34

Sometimes we just use the word magic, very loosely, in a metaphorical sense, but it's not actually magic, but it's wonderful. And therefore it's amazing. It's wonderful. And we refer to it as magic. That's beyond our discussion.

00:59:38--> 00:59:40

by speaking about magic,

00:59:41--> 00:59:47

we need to concentrate on witchcraft, sorcery, and magic in the more serious sense.

00:59:48--> 00:59:51

Does it happen does it exist? Is it real?

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

Apart from all of these other cases of magic, Wonder

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

For displays, or doing things with the sleight of hand covering things, concealing things, or doing something in a very dexterous manner.

01:00:09--> 01:00:22

That's beyond our discussion, we will concentrate on just two types of magic, one, magic, which creates an illusion, but very serious illusion.

01:00:23--> 01:00:29

such as when people make things disappear. I mean huge things, or

01:00:31--> 01:00:49

people make things appear and others that are very serious. We're not just talking about simple car tricks, but the disappearance of huge objects, items, and even people and people transporting themselves from one place to another one appearing to transform or transport themselves, do these things happen?

01:00:50--> 01:01:03

Some people, Muslims deny this outright that there is no reality to magic, but the call and speaks of magic, and it speeds us up. So there are two categories that I will concentrate on the first category is where

01:01:04--> 01:01:07

a spell is cast on a person's

01:01:10--> 01:01:12

an illusion is create.

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

And in that illusion,

01:01:18--> 01:01:21

people actually believe and see things that aren't that.

01:01:22--> 01:01:24

That happens. And it's mentioned in the

01:01:25--> 01:01:27

last panel what Allah says,

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

In the story of Satan and Musa alayhis, salam, in sort of drop off.

01:01:38--> 01:01:42

For the Sahaba in a mess, it was the majority.

01:01:44--> 01:01:50

A lot of things that Musa alayhis salam, such as opponents, the other sources of Farah,

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

Uncle you cast for them, also when they did cast, so how are you in a nurse, they bewitched the eyes of the people?

01:02:05--> 01:02:21

foster home, so they cast fear into them, they frighten them, watch out will be second in Alvin. And they produce so they brought forth an immense sorcery. What that verse shows is that this wasn't a simple, innocent,

01:02:22--> 01:02:24

humorous illusion.

01:02:25--> 01:02:26

Rather, a law says,

01:02:27--> 01:02:30

what do they do they be rich, the eyes of the people.

01:02:31--> 01:03:02

So the people began seeing things of such an immense nature, that they were frightened, genuinely frightened. So law says first that they be rich, the arms of the people for stuff and they frighten them. They cause great fright. Watch out, we'll be sitting in a room and they produce that they brought forth a great sorcery. It wasn't mine. Allah Himself refers to his at refers to it as basically now the great sorcery, even though it was still an illusion.

01:03:06--> 01:03:10

Then the last panel with Anna

01:03:11--> 01:03:13

so that that's when we talk about illusion.

01:03:15--> 01:03:16

The other

01:03:17--> 01:03:36

The second category of magic, which is more difficult for some people to accept, is not simply an illusion, but sorcery witchcraft and magic, or spells and incantations and implications which lead to a genuinely change and not simply an illusion.

01:03:37--> 01:03:54

Even that is true, does not last a faith Allah mana man whom am I for reportedly, he by in America was out. So they learn they would learn from those two such sorcery with which they would create a divide between a man and his wife.

01:03:55--> 01:03:56

There's no illusion in that.

01:03:58--> 01:04:11

Destroying the love between two individuals breaking a marriage and driving two people apart. We've been brought together by love family, marriage and the holy bond.

01:04:12--> 01:04:22

last panel, Donna says the sorcerers in ancient Babylon were able to do that. So that's not an illusion, and these are verses of the poorer

01:04:27--> 01:04:27


01:04:29--> 01:04:33

moving on from that I'd like to say speak about the fact that

01:04:34--> 01:05:00

something which I haven't mentioned yet, in all of these verses, and how they related sort of develop and sort of the mass, there are very clear, categorical indisputable, authentic and reliable heavy, recorded by many authors, including a mammal herding any mammals more than once in their collections, referring to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

01:05:00--> 01:05:04

them as being a victim of sorcery and magic.

01:05:08--> 01:05:36

Like Stedman Hardy and Mr. Muslim and many of the authors of these all relates that the prophets a lot the opening shot of the lover and essays as well as it's not just money and shuttle the loved one her other companions including zaidan oticon, Bill Viola and also relate this. These are Howdy. They say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam them, and I'll just give you a summary of the authentic hadith at least on the topic.

01:05:37--> 01:05:39

In the seventh year of hedge,

01:05:40--> 01:05:48

after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came back from a BIA. And after the Battle of haber,

01:05:50--> 01:05:58

you may have been immediately before the Battle of haber Bosch, or immediately thereafter, but at least it wasn't the beginning of it was in the seventh year of Hitler.

01:06:00--> 01:06:16

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there was a young man who a young lad from one of the Jewish tribes of Medina, who would visit the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and help him in certain things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam trusted him.

01:06:19--> 01:06:21

This young lad was

01:06:23--> 01:06:29

approached by the enemies of the prophets of Allah hiding some of them

01:06:30--> 01:06:32

who wish to cast a spell on

01:06:34--> 01:06:39

and they convinced this young lad to collect some of the

01:06:43--> 01:06:45

some items associated with the messenger.

01:06:48--> 01:06:49

He was convinced.

01:06:51--> 01:06:58

And since he visited the home of a sort of Luckily, his Salatu was Salam XL It was a man who was a young lad, he

01:07:01--> 01:07:06

picked up the comb of the Prophet sallallahu, I think it was something and

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

some of the strands of hair that had come away from his novel head and beard when combing

01:07:17--> 01:07:39

and he took these away. So there was a comb over a suit Allahu Salatu was salam, as well as some of the hairs from his noble beard and head, which came away when combing and heats these. And as per instruction, he delivered them to libidinal Epson

01:07:40--> 01:07:42

who was a hypocrite.

01:07:43--> 01:07:49

He was of Jewish origin. But he had embraced Islam extensively, hypocritically.

01:07:50--> 01:07:57

But he remained the hypocrites. And he was actually from the Ansel, he was somebody who's already

01:08:00--> 01:08:06

libidinal, Arison took these strands of hair and this car

01:08:07--> 01:08:18

and he cast the spell or sort of La sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and having done so, he buried the teeth of this comb and the strands of hair.

01:08:22--> 01:08:28

And he must have tied knots either in the string or on the hairs themselves.

01:08:30--> 01:08:37

And he wrapped this whole collection in a sheath of bait palm fiber.

01:08:38--> 01:08:59

And he placed this fiber meaning it was the enclosure of the bird of a date palm tree, but it was a it was kind of envelope and enclosure. He wrapped all of this in that envelope and of date palm fiber, and he placed this beneath a rock heavy rock in a well.

01:09:03--> 01:09:13

Having done this, the profits of the law legal sounds completely unaware of that he stood out to us and began experiencing physical pain in the body.

01:09:15--> 01:09:18

And it became more and more intense as time went on.

01:09:20--> 01:09:26

We also learn that apart from the physical pain was total loss Allahu alayhi wa sallam

01:09:27--> 01:09:28


01:09:30--> 01:09:59

experienced fleeting thoughts. I do stress fleeting thoughts that he had approached his wives when in fact he hadn't. But these weren't lasting, lingering thoughts. These were fleeting thoughts. So they will come and go immediately, but the physical pain would last and he became very severe, and he would also become ill over that period. This whole period lasted six months.

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

Under which he remained under the spell, during which he remained under the spell.

01:10:07--> 01:10:14

Then meaning the alarm high relates at the profit some of the love it was seldom said to me. Oh Anisha Dena.

01:10:16--> 01:10:20

Allah has replied to me about what I inquired of him.

01:10:21--> 01:10:24

In the words of Stan, if you must have data,

01:10:26--> 01:10:27

Attorney FEMA stuff data,

01:10:28--> 01:10:32

he has answered me about what I inquired of him.

01:10:34--> 01:11:01

So, and it is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asleep, and in a dream, and the dream of the Prophet sallahu wa Salatu was Salam is what he and Revelation, he says, to angels to men meaning to angels came to me whilst I was lying down, one sat by my feet, and one sat by my head, and the one who sat by His head was gibberella histogram, and the other who sat by his feet was Mika enolase.

01:11:06--> 01:11:16

And one asked the other, that what is wrong with him? So the other replied, meaning he is, he is under a spell.

01:11:17--> 01:11:18

He is suffering

01:11:19--> 01:11:21

from the effects of magic.

01:11:24--> 01:11:41

So the question that again asked, and who has cast spell on him, and he was said, libidinal, awesome. My name and identity were given how it was a whole conversation that took place between these angels over the body of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whilst he was lying there, this was a dream that he saw.

01:11:43--> 01:12:25

So one angel said to the other, who has cast the spell, maybe you didn't ask them? How did he do it? And it was explained, where has he placed these effects of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam, and the place and location were given. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam World Cup, he told Anisha about the law, and that law has given me an answer about what I inquired of him. And he relates to the whole dream, then he summoned some of the companions or the allies, including see them a little, your loved one, and he sent them they went, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam followed them himself. And the effects were extracted from beneath Iraq, and indeed, they

01:12:25--> 01:12:29

found strands of his hair, and a comb,

01:12:30--> 01:12:43

and his noble comb, all wrapped up, along with knots. Now what happened is that the prophets of Allah, it was some sense of the alarm, and he gave him instructions, and then he followed him. And then

01:12:44--> 01:13:26

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went, and as was mentioned the dream. One angel said to the other, what is a cure? And they said, well, algebra will follow cuckoo bananas. So there were 11 months, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began reciting once the effects have been extracted from the well, there were 11 months. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam began reciting Well, I would have been a follow up. As I said, earlier, there are five verses and sort of unfolded six verses and sort of the mass, a total of 11, upon the completion of each verse, each not became unraveled. Second, second, not third, not third, third, this third not all the way till the

01:13:26--> 01:13:27


01:13:28--> 01:14:08

Under the official duty management engine that the oneness with that the final marks came loose and it was unraveled. Then the province of the words of the Hadith are got another mesh of them in a call. It was as though he had been suddenly released from a chord that had banned and he was completely relieved. Now, once the interestingly the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam despite having suffered the effects of magic for a period of six months, knowing the identity of the individual Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took no action, either against a young lad or even libidinal acid, not action whatsoever.

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

Now, here,

01:14:16--> 01:14:31

many people do experience a stumbling block because they and many people genuinely asked a very valid question, how is it possible for a messenger of Allah, the sort of loss of love and evil, some of them to suffer the effects of magic

01:14:32--> 01:14:34

as a result of this conundrum?

01:14:35--> 01:14:59

A number of people including translators, and recent commentators, as well as one or two of the earlier commentators of the Koran, have completely dismissed these, this whole report and they invalidate it. And their argument is that Allah says in the animal law, we are similar. Come in and

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

As a law will protect you from the people, and because of various other things, are you they say, How can we continue to believe in the infallibility and the protection of the sort of loss of the law Harlan porcelain, if we accept that he suffered the effects of magic.

01:15:17--> 01:16:03

So, and because of this, the whole report, all these reports on the whole concept and the whole incident have been completely dismissed. Now, there are some questions about that if we dismiss this whole incident, and we are in effect, in fact, some of the commentators, recent modern day commentators and translators have gone to the extent of saying that although these reports have been related by authentic and reliable narrators, and recorded in authentic books, we still cannot accept them. So the question here is, do we accept the authority of the heavy formats,

01:16:04--> 01:16:10

especially the authentic and reliable sources such as Bihari Muslim, and others, these aren't the only authentic

01:16:11--> 01:16:14

because these are how these have been read these

01:16:15--> 01:16:19

Hadith about this particular incident have been widely reported.

01:16:21--> 01:16:22

If we dismiss them,

01:16:23--> 01:16:24


01:16:25--> 01:16:28

On what basis by which criteria

01:16:31--> 01:16:37

we will then have to consistently apply the same criteria to the rest of that how the salsa

01:16:39--> 01:16:45

and in reality, the argument that we'll learn we are similar come in and NASS alone protect you from the beat from the people.

01:16:46--> 01:17:14

That this verse negates the possibility of a sort of lovely slotless lamb suffering, the effects of magic. This, this argument doesn't actually hold or stand if you subject to scrutiny for the following reasons. One, sort of learning is set out to slam like all the other messengers of Allah, we're human beings, as a result of which that bodies and

01:17:15--> 01:17:24

even their minds, and their hearts, we're all and they're very person, we're all subjected to the normal

01:17:26--> 01:17:29

occurrences and forces of human nature.

01:17:31--> 01:17:56

The prophets of Allah fell ill, and we don't even need to look at the other messengers. For the time being, let's look at a sort of law, some law it was seldom himself, we all except Muslims, all except that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went hungry, he fell ill, he felt thirsty. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam bled in battle. He was injured, he was wounded. He, he lost his noble teeth.

01:17:57--> 01:18:46

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was cut, he bled. In fact, although not many people know this. I explained this in commentary of evil Buhari many years ago, that there were two occasions when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam led Salah while sitting. One was in the early or the middle years in of money life. That was the first instance. And the second instance was in his final illness before he passed away, he would sit down and lead the people in prayer. And the first time he led people in prayer while seated as the Hardy thermal Hardy and other states, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, that when I lead setting, you also pray behind the

01:18:46--> 01:19:26

setting. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam led Salah while sitting, and all of the companions behind him also perform Salah while seated. And that's clearly mentioned in the Hadeeth. Some people unfortunately, I've taken those that have even said, right, if the mom sits down, we all have to sit down, because he's clearly say so this is again a failure to understand the chronology of the Hadith. This was in the middle years of history. But in the final years, in fact, in the final few days, when he led solder while seated, he and the Sahaba sat down behind him in recognition and in honor of his earlier instruction, that you should all sit behind me. He said no, before I told you

01:19:26--> 01:19:55

to sit, if the Imam said but now even if the Imam sits you stand, and that is the final verdict. So even now, if the amount for any reason leads prayer, while seated, those behind him will continue normally standing. Now he was ill in the final days, I'm here to sit and lead because of his final illness. But what was the reason for him leading prayers while seated in those middle years. And in fact, this lasted for a whole period of one month. And

01:19:56--> 01:19:59

the reason was, he had actually fallen off his horse and

01:20:00--> 01:20:17

broken his leg. So the province of the law legal someone was recuperating and recovering from a broken leg. So there we are. So Lorraine salatu salam was wounded in battle he bled, he was injured. He even broke his leg while simply falling off a horse.

01:20:18--> 01:20:23

These were This was his human nature. And as a human being,

01:20:25--> 01:20:43

a lot allowed his body and his mind and his human person to be subjected to all the normal human forces and exposures. And that was a case, which included illness wasn't the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam poisoned? Didn't he suffer the effects of poison.

01:20:46--> 01:21:05

In fact, in the final days, he said he he believed that the well, it was the effects of the poison of three years earlier in the Battle of haber that we surfaced, so the province of the law it will send him as a human being was subjected to all of these things.

01:21:07--> 01:21:08


01:21:09--> 01:21:20

this is why when he was under the spell of magic, what did he suffer? He suffered physical pain and illness which intensified towards the end of that six month period.

01:21:22--> 01:22:08

If he could fall hungry, thirsty, be wounded, injured, if he could bleed, and suffer all these normal human trials, then suffering pain and illness because of the ill effects of magic, rather than a fall or an injury or battle isn't the same category? One, two, I mentioned earlier that he had fleeting thoughts. I did say he had fleeting thoughts because it didn't mean that certain thoughts occurred to him and they lingered and lasted Far from it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam momentarily had fleeting thoughts because of the ill effects of the magic that he had actually approached his wives. But immediately these thoughts were dispelled. So it was a momentary

01:22:08--> 01:22:55

fleeting attack. And that was part of the effects of magic. Was that possible? Yes, it is. We can't deny it simply because it's in the Hadeeth. And I'll mention why in a moment. Apart from this physical pain and illness and these fleeting thoughts, remember, what were the thoughts that were only related to one category, only about approaching his wives event related to anything else? And that's categorically mentioned in the Hadeeth. In one hand, he says he would think that he had done something when he hadn't. This, this is not a wide scope. This doesn't include everything. This is simply a euphemistic and an honorable and noble way of saying, which is explained more clearly in

01:22:55--> 01:23:30

another Hadith. Did you think about many things that he had done them when he hadn't? No, there was only one thing which was, he would, he would be made to think that he had approached his wives, when in reality he hadn't. And this would be a fleeting momentary thought, which would immediately dissipate. So in the heaviest weight says that he would think that he had done something when he hadn't. This is simply euphemistic way of saying on one thing, he would think he had approached his wives when he hadn't. This was the only thought he had, apart from this thought that remember that your thoughts know are the effects of magic

01:23:32--> 01:23:43

apart from the physical pain and illness, now again, some people say well, how can you accept that Muslims will say, how can you accept that just on the basis of the Hadeeth? Well, in sort of bar,

01:23:44--> 01:23:49

going back to the story of season, I'm also adding to that Allah has the original season sort of bar honorable

01:23:51--> 01:24:03

for either about what you see you whom you lay him in him unharness for autosurf enough CFE for the Moosa on Allah. Allah Allah. Allah says

01:24:04--> 01:24:08

lusardi salam was asked by the sorceress.

01:24:09--> 01:24:16

Will you be the first to cast or shall we cast? So Musa alayhis salam says honorable alchemy you cashed first

01:24:17--> 01:24:36

fell in Morocco. Then when the sorceress cast further Heba where you see your home, lo and behold, their ropes and their staffs, you hengelo la humans, in the hottest Ah, it was made to appear unto him in thought

01:24:37--> 01:24:49

that these ropes and the staffs were running for older Safina set up for the Moosa so he musala his salon felt fear in his heart.

01:24:50--> 01:25:00

buruma we said law referring to himself in the Regal pronoun. Well, now we said law of Omarosa, do not fear in Mecca until you shall reign supreme of

01:25:00--> 01:25:14

You shall prevail. Now wasn't Musa alayhis salam, one of the messengers of Allah? Wasn't Musa alayhis salam, one of the otter lasma minahasa the five mighty messengers? Yes, he was,

01:25:18--> 01:25:28

and does not allow say of him Musa alayhis salam, not only Hadith but in the Holy Quran, that when the magician's cast their ropes and stops, what happened?

01:25:29--> 01:26:00

Your Halo elite human certainly doesn't speak about anyone else. Allah speaks here in this verse, only about Mussolini's salon. You hated it. He it was made to appear unto him and not just simply appear. Your your hail is related to higher theology, you know, is related to thought. So he was made to imagine, Musa alayhis salam was made to imagine that these ropes and these staffs were actually snakes and serpents slithering and running around or before him.

01:26:01--> 01:26:19

And as a result of what he saw, he wasn't minor he actually felt fear for all just enough so you think for the mortar, he felt fear. Allah azza wa jal immediately reassured him himself. Well, now we said latter half Do not fear in the current era, indeed you will prevail over them.

01:26:21--> 01:27:10

If say you're gonna Musa alayhis salam could momentarily think that ropes and staffs were actually snakes and serpents slithering and running and darting about him. And not just simply see these as an illusion, but experience fear as a result of them, losses quite clearly. And he was a messenger of Allah, and what messenger the might one of the mighty messengers and he actually felt fear. Allah has intervened and said to him, Do not fear in the Quran that Allah indeed you shall prevail and he was a messenger of Allah. Similarly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would momentarily experience certain thoughts, but there will be fleeting thoughts just as a line to the end with Musa

01:27:10--> 01:27:23

alayhis salam, Allah azza wa jal would intervene and reassure the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that was the only thought that's actually mentioned in that Hadith. Apart from that, it was physical pain and illness, etc.

01:27:25--> 01:27:47

These are the verses of the Quran and if that could happen, see that I'm also adding Salaam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was also a messenger of Allah, it was no different. Finally, as acid was just one thought, despite all of these human exposures of pain, of illness, of injury, of wounding, of bleeding, despite all the of being vulnerable to poison,

01:27:49--> 01:28:14

and eventually death, despite all of these human exposures, and human sufferings, Allah has the original protected all of his messengers from so you then add them to the sort of law, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam with his divine protection when it came to issues of Prophet. And the revelation of the Quran, does not largely remain in the Quran in Hawaii in Hawaii.

01:28:15--> 01:28:25

And he does not speak of desire. It is a revelation that is revealed. And so hopefully this should reconcile

01:28:26--> 01:28:41

what they should address some of the concerns about these reports in the Hadeeth. And it's not correct to dismiss them simply on the basis of these reports, being in the Hadeeth, and not the whole report.

01:28:42--> 01:28:45

Because the same arguments would then apply to see that

01:28:46--> 01:28:48

and that's actually in the Koran.

01:28:49--> 01:28:50


01:28:53--> 01:29:06

what about sorcery and magic and witchcraft today? Despite what I've said here, another question is, why did Allah azzawajal allow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam subtle effects of magic? There's one reason for this. It's the

01:29:07--> 01:29:12

it's a pattern. It's a pattern that we see in the Quran. And in the Hadith,

01:29:13--> 01:29:38

that last panel who would have sent the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam all of the prophets and their chosen disciples and companions, as beacons of light and guidance and as examples of conduct and character for their communities and their nations. This means that a lot did not reveal send down any of his messengers as angels, or their disciples and companions.

01:29:40--> 01:29:59

Otherwise it would have the objective would have been defeated just as a Quraysh argued, but why doesn't Allah send down an angel? Why send him and that's why we used to say, Marley has ever saw the Apollo time. OMG Phyllis Well, what's what kind of messenger is this? What what's wrong with this messenger? Jaco Tommy today

01:30:00--> 01:30:12

She feel a swap and he goes shopping in the markets. What kind of messenger is that we would expect an angel to come down from the heavens for guidance as a messenger and prophets. So Allah has also says another verse that

01:30:15--> 01:30:34

even if we had sent down an angel, the same confusion that they are experiencing now, and the same doubts that they are that surfaced in their minds and hearts, and the same objections that they raised for not believing in the Messenger of Allah, they would suffer the same confusion and raise the same objections about some Angel.

01:30:36--> 01:31:18

So Allah sent down the messengers as human beings, not angels, and same with the companions and disciples who were with them, so that they could serve as examples. Anything which is befitting anything which does not detract from the position of a messenger, Allah allowed the messengers of Allah, to experience those things as an example, for his nation. Anything which does which does detract from their status as messengers of Allah, Allah did not allow them to undergo those experiences, even as an example. Rather, those experiences were transferred to the companions and disciples, for instance.

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


01:31:22--> 01:31:27

is something totally unbecoming and unbefitting the rank of a messenger

01:31:29--> 01:31:33

or even or Eve, the family of a messenger

01:31:36--> 01:31:45

that's why we believe that no messenger of Allah, or even a member of the family of the Messenger of Allah ever,

01:31:47--> 01:31:48

was unchaste

01:31:49--> 01:31:51

even the wives of loot,

01:31:54--> 01:32:00

the wives of loot masam as mentioned in sort of,

01:32:01--> 01:32:15

they both disbelieved, but that will categorically state that their sin was disbelief and rebellion against their husbands, as far as the matters of belief were concerned, but personally, they were chased

01:32:17--> 01:32:19

despite their disbelief, they were chased.

01:32:20--> 01:32:24

However, when we look at the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

01:32:29--> 01:32:33

a very small number, a very small number. In fact,

01:32:35--> 01:32:46

two to three mentioned in that heavy they did suffer episodes of in chastity not repeated a single episode of in chastity.

01:32:47--> 01:33:11

So they were unchaste on to a number of a number of companions, men and women were unchaste What happened? Why were some of the companions and chaste don't listen Stanley? Why were there episodes of in chastity with a select small number of companions, men and women, again, so that Allah subhanho wa Taala could use them as an example.

01:33:13--> 01:33:17

One Sahabi, who committed adultery but then repented

01:33:18--> 01:33:23

when he died, and companions spoke ill of him.

01:33:24--> 01:33:33

Two people spoke ill of him the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam summoned them, and said to both of them, that those two come forward

01:33:34--> 01:33:50

who were speaking of the deceased earlier, they both came forward. They were traveling, there was a carcass of a dead donkey on the road with its legs pointed up towards the sky. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to both of them, dismount and devour

01:33:51--> 01:34:26

and eat from this carcass, they said, Subhana lay out a sort of law. How can we eat the carcass, profits in the law, our legal system said, what you devoured of your brother a few months ago was a worse devouring them this, you backbite it and you consume the flesh of your dead brother, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and studies been related by many, including Amanda widowed in Asana and others in Malmo, without the Odyssey and many others. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, By Allah, even now I can see him diving into the streams of joy.

01:34:29--> 01:34:51

There was another woman who committed adultery. And when she died, others uttered something in contempt, or sort of loss in the law, Eileen, who seldom said, Indeed she has repented such a repentance, that if her individual repentance was to be distributed equally across the people of Medina, it would suffice all of

01:34:52--> 01:35:00

so yes, they were believers, but they suffered an episode of interest in it. A lot allowed that to happen.

01:35:00--> 01:35:20

And some of the could serve as examples. But the wives of the messengers of Allah to northern route are a Muslim, despite being disbelievers. They were chased. What is the secret? This is a reason What are that which wasn't befitting and becoming

01:35:21--> 01:35:33

of the messengers of the position of the messengers of Allah, that which detracted from their status, Allah did not allow that to happen. That which didn't detract from their status or last panel with Allah allowed it to happen

01:35:34--> 01:35:47

to them, otherwise to the companions, and then there were many things which weren't even befitting the position of the companions, sort of runner that allowed that to happen to the companions, illness, exposure to human suffering,

01:35:48--> 01:36:18

weakness, physical ailments, the effects of poison, and the effects of magic and sorcery. None of these things detract from the position of the Messenger of Allah. And so Allah azza wa jal allowed that to happen. Finally, Allah has the original Saison, the final verse from in shovelling house, they didn't have that hazard, and from the evil of the envier, when he envies there's a connection a lot begins a sutra with the daybreak, Allah mentions the evils of the Knights, Allah mentions the

01:36:20--> 01:36:30

evils of witchcraft and sorcery. And then finally of the end of the year when the end is because envy can lead to sorcery and magic, and envy is evil.

01:36:31--> 01:36:33

And one of the connections is,

01:36:34--> 01:36:49

Allah says, I'm gonna show the hospital that I walk up and from the evil of the dark night, when it pervades I in its darkness, in one Hadeeth a sort of laughs of the law hiding who seldom says, the bacon de publikum hacer the word about

01:36:51--> 01:37:40

the disease of the people of the past, has crept into you secretly, that the means crawled and crept into, and what are those two diseases? or Why does he mention about this is the connection just as there are creepy crawlies at night and there are dangers and the dangers and perils of the nights that lurk stealthily there is a stealthy disease also there has crept into us in the words of the resort of loss on the lung, and that stealthily that disease, that surreptitious disease that has crept into stealthily, like the dangers of the mind, is the disease to diseases, the disease of envy, and the disease of hatred. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues, and

01:37:40--> 01:37:54

that these that he'll hardly call it, this could refer to the second disease, ie hatred, and you can even refer to the first one envy. It is the shaver, that all of that little shadow work and

01:37:55--> 01:37:58

I don't say that it shaves hair, it shaves religion,

01:38:00--> 01:38:09

because envy destroys. In fact, one of these Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, He will have said in the last of the Quran, huseynov

01:38:10--> 01:39:04

Okada Allah. He says, beware of envy, for envy consumes good deeds, just as fire consumers dry wood, or grass. Imagine dry grass and dry wood, we may not fully understand it in this climate. But in hot tropical climates, especially in places like Australia and Africa, in those continents, where there is Bush, if there is a bushfire, it burns and your rageous ferociously uncontrollably, in fact, consuming not just a few square meters, but we're actually talking about hundreds and even 1000s of square miles. And that's a fact. So the province of the law says beware of envy. Hazard, for envy consumes good deeds just as fire consumes wood, or dry wood or dry grass. What's envy?

01:39:05--> 01:39:07

envy is where

01:39:10--> 01:39:14

someone is passionate about something someone else has. People often

01:39:17--> 01:39:28

interchangeably use the word envy and jealousy. But in in essence, even in the English language, envy and jealousy aren't synonymous. Jealousy is when you are passionate about something you have

01:39:30--> 01:39:34

a wife or a husband or partner spouse, when they are jealous.

01:39:36--> 01:39:43

They are passionate about something that they have, and they want to keep them they don't want to lose.

01:39:44--> 01:39:59

But envy is when you are passionate about what someone else has. You want them to lose it. That's a difference between envy and jealousy in English. And in Arabic. There's a further distinction, although we don't see this distinction in English.

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


01:40:01--> 01:40:11

we use the word envy for both good and bad. So when someone is envious, ie they are envious in a malicious manner

01:40:12--> 01:40:23

seething with anger, green with envy burning with envy within, because someone else has something that they don't have. But we also use the word envy in a very innocent,

01:40:25--> 01:40:57

benign manner in English, such as I envy you your success, or I envy you your position where we don't mean anything. We don't mean ill. But we envy them, we would like to aspire to the same, we would want the same for ourselves without any ill feeling, or without harboring any desire for them to suffer any loss in their blessing. So in English, we use Word envy for both good and bad for whether it's malicious or benign bits in Arabic, there's a difference between

01:40:59--> 01:41:09

malignant envy and benign envy. So in Arabic, if you are passionate about what someone else has, and you want them to be deprived of it,

01:41:11--> 01:41:17

and you are envious, in a malicious manner, that's known as asset. But if you

01:41:20--> 01:41:28

envy someone, something that they have, in a very benign manner, and you wish the well you wish the best for them, we only hope that you could have the same and

01:41:30--> 01:41:52

it's benign, then that is known as the HIPAA in Arabic of HIPAA. So, have said, and we are talking about the of the evil kind, we don't have time, it's complete topic in itself. I'll just leave you with just one or two final thoughts about envy. Allah has the original season. And we asked the woman Macedonian masala, Mata, lovely, lovely,

01:41:53--> 01:41:57

that what do they envy people?

01:41:58--> 01:42:06

What Allah has bestowed upon them of his band, and that's why I'm delighted that was all there'll be a lot I would say, laughter ardunio mala, do not

01:42:09--> 01:42:50

do not become an enemy of the blessings of Allah do not oppose the blessings of Allah so students said to him, or I'm delighted and thrilled, how is it possible for anyone to become an enemy of the blessings of Allah? So I'm delighted to sort of have the alarm says, When Allah bestows his blessing upon someone, and you are envious of that blessing, then you are opposing and becoming an enemy of the blessings of Allah. In fact, you're almost objecting to Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's what this verse says that ultimately, if you are unhappy about what someone else has done in reality, you are complaining about a lost crown of water and are giving them what he wishes to give. So um, yes,

01:42:50--> 01:43:14

alone and NASS, what do they envy people what love is bestowed upon them of his bounty, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a victim of envy. In fact, there's verses related to the sort of law and he has said that there was Sam and there are other verses also which speak about envy. In fact, in one verse only appears in one Arabic, not not some Navin may shut down for AR to dunya what to talk about another job?

01:43:15--> 01:43:20

Allah says this is in relation to the branch again, they said lowlands that I haven't

01:43:22--> 01:43:23

forgotten as in

01:43:24--> 01:44:08

the quarry shed Why did Allah give the Quran and revelation to this man hammer the son of Abdullah he's not rich is not powerful. He does not have a noble Henri position in our people. If Allah wished and he wanted to make a messenger then lowlands report on why wasn't the score and revealed an original middle Katya Tina lien upon the great man from the two cities, and the two cities means that if so, why wasn't someone one of the leaders have arranged for maka chosen for Prophethood? Or why wasn't one of the leaders a bundle thief in the city of five chosen for Prophethood? This is similar to our objection, when we are envious of someone. Why does he have that? Why does she have

01:44:08--> 01:44:18

that? So Allah has the word will say, why don't we have it? Allah azzawajal says, only a single Arabic What do they divide and distribute the mercy of Allah

01:44:21--> 01:44:22

Manisha to whom

01:44:23--> 01:45:00

we are the ones who have distributed their livelihood between them. And there are the other verses that many Hadith about this topic of envy. I've spoken in detail devoted the whole talk to just envy refer to that, along with just one or two quotes about envy. In reality, it doesn't make sense being envious. Envy, consumes energy and your brain cells. We have a limited amount of energy and a limited number of brains. This is a good way of thinking about it. We have a limited number of breaths limited number of

01:45:00--> 01:45:10

brain cells, unlimited number of unlimited amounts of energy. Why should we ban that energy and consume it on someone else?

01:45:12--> 01:45:16

Why not put that to good use? If someone has something,

01:45:18--> 01:45:19

pray to Allah for the same

01:45:21--> 01:45:44

work towards the same rather than pursue that individual and see with anger within. And that's all envy does. Envy is a fire it consumes our good deeds just as fire consumes wouldn't dry grass in the words of the messenger, some of the law it and some of them, it consumes our brain cells consumes our energy, and it's a fire that rages within

01:45:46--> 01:46:03

and consumes us before anyone else. In fact, the one who is a victim of our envy does not suffer so much because of our envy. And that's why mama hustle bustle Europe with the lady has said something which is very beautiful, he said Mara Ito volume and volume Manhasset.

01:46:05--> 01:46:16

Now for some there was no lesson whatever from Latin fed, he has some lessly, a very wise and famous scholar. He says that I have never seen

01:46:17--> 01:46:32

someone who's oppressed Sorry, I have never seen an oppressor who seems more like an oppressed one. I have never seen an oppressor and a perpetrator of a crime, who actually seems more likely oppressed and the victim himself.

01:46:33--> 01:46:43

So rather than a hassad, an envier. When you look at an envious person, in reality he is perpetrating the sin and crime of envy against someone else.

01:46:45--> 01:47:01

He is the one who is oppressing another, and being unjust to another with his crime and sin of envy. But in reality, he looks more like the oppressed and the victim himself. Because nothing worse than that. He says, endless size

01:47:02--> 01:47:38

has known as an inseparable grief. Why Britain Latin for an endless tears, and that's him, not the victim of his envy. So it's fire which consumes a person from within it doesn't make sense. It's, it requires some challenge. It's far better for a person to be happy for someone else that relieves an individual. And this is why another famous scholar says, well, a poet says lilla Hassidim Arjuna. But the Sahaba he thought that Allah to Allah belongs the wonder of envy, envy begins with the envy and it kills him.

01:47:39--> 01:47:45

Envy begins with the envia and it kills him. And there's another beautiful poem it says, that

01:47:46--> 01:47:55

way that are the law national for the Latin poet attacca su de nodige. The I don't know if he majha what

01:47:56--> 01:48:13

maca and euro for the biography Rudy, it rhymes. It says that when a low wishes to expose and reveal or when Allah wishes to reveal a virtue, which was hitherto concealed, then Allah gives

01:48:16--> 01:48:20

to that virtue, the tongue of an envious person.

01:48:21--> 01:49:08

So that person constantly talks about the victim of his envy, and the virtues and the good deeds of that victim of envy appear and are revealed to the people. And then there's very beautiful couplet that follows it would say, Lola Leon that if he majha What if it wasn't for the bursting of fire and the inflammation of fire and it's lighting up what's in its immediate surroundings Magana euro for the water filter, all the the fragrance of food would never be now the beauty of the fragrance of our old would never be now meaning you know, old roots in Arabic simply mean stick. And when we have this ruled sticks that are banned these sticks actually from the bark of trees, fragrant trees, so

01:49:08--> 01:49:59

it's just normal bark. And if you smell the dry bark, it's odorless, it's actually odorless. Or you may have a slight fragrance I would have been not much. In fact, some of them the genuine ones are odorless. When you when you light a fire and heat them up. There are oils as residue within the bark of those trees. And this oil bands and gifts gives off a very powerful and very beautiful fragrance. So he's again speaking of fire, he says if it wasn't for fire, which lights up its surroundings, and burns the wood and the bark of these trees or rude, then the beauty of the fragrance with the help of rude will never be realized. And again he speaks about the individual that when the fire of envy

01:49:59--> 01:49:59


01:50:00--> 01:50:39

Within an envious person, it burns and consumes him. But he actually gives off the fragrance of other people's virtues and the purchase of the victim of his envy. I ended with this This brings us to the end of sort of them fill up your last panel with Allah enable us to understand his words, and to draw wisdom and learning and lessons from them. May Allah azza wa jal granters, his protection from the evil of all of these things that I mentioned and sort of follow up, and other evils also are some of the models of the man after he was sued in the Vietnam humid. While early he was in panic a lot more Pamela can shadow a lie that he learned as the honor to be like
