Do Now let's kick off
this video on 100 level salatu salam ala Rasulillah for Allah Allah He was like me he or Manuela, Allahu Allah Iman in them I lamp tena in Mecca antenna and even Hakeem, Allah ma eliminate Mayan pharaoh now when fat and everything that I lived in I was in our in Europe anatomy Allah whom I think that I have because of nativa. Their wedding and Valentina Valentina was organized, she never was set up might equal the label to Catherine again to everyone. It's good to be here. Before we get started, I want to make a quick addition to the verses that we're covering today. Yes, we're going to get to sort of the scene, verse number nine. But we're actually going to begin with a different
verse. And that is sort of an unfun, verse number 30. So surah number eight, verse number 30. If somebody could drop that in the chat, I really appreciate it like a link to it. So that that unfed which is number eight and verse number 30. So what are we talking about today? And I know it's called the escape. And if you didn't gather what that's about already, then this is referring to the higit of the Prophet sallallahu. I mean, he was sending them from Mecca, his home and Mecca to Medina. Now, the story is actually a very, very long story. And I really had to, you know, when I was given, I was looking at the time and as you know, how much of the story can we really cover?
What points do we really want to talk about, that I had to really zone in and focus in on some aspects, I just want to give a quick disclaimer, that this is just a portion of the story regarding the Hijra of the prophets, I send them in obviously, that is a very, very significant event in the history of Islam. And obviously, we mark the Islamic calendar by the Hijra. And that's just an indication of not only that, yeah, we may understand that that's important but for the companions of the Allah, I'm home, when not all the time, I was trying to figure out what to how to set the Islamic calendar, what would be like Year Zero, year one, the hedgerow was so significant, that they
that they decided that that would be that would mark the first year of Islam that the Digital Point. And so that should give us some indication about how important that year is that when the higit was made, that became the first year so we have pre Hasanah and post higit on usually when we're talking about pre hijra, we refer to that date as the the year of the Dawa. So if we say like the 12, the year of the Dawa, that means this is 12 years after the prophets I send them received the message of Islam. And then if we're talking about you know, second or third year general hijab, we mean, okay, that's after the painter. So that's just something to keep in mind and Shalom to Allah. So this
story is actually important to me as well, because actually cover a part of the story in my seminar called deception is study of the Shia pawn, we're going to talk about how the chiffon has a role to play in this as well. But before we get started, insha Allah I want to set the stage for you regarding
what is happening at this point. Obviously, we know and we understand that the Muslims had faced a lot, a lot, a lot of persecution, torture and torment in Mecca. And it was unbearable for the Muslims to live there. And the prophets I send them was now you know, the, you know, the groundwork had been laid in Macau, with Masamune are made and others who laid the groundwork for the Muslims to make Hijra to Medina but the Prophet sallallaahu send them was waiting for specific permission to come from Allah who is coming to Allah guidance from Allah to come to allow the Muslims to make him up. And then eventually, yes, that permission came from Allah who is kinda like to Allah. But it's
very interesting that even though the permission came for himself to be made, the Companions would personally go to the prophets, I send them and seek His permission, say, can I make a job and the press said, I'm gonna give them some specific permission for the individuals or the families to make a journal. And so, in the process entered himself was no different, even though hedgerow was made permissible and Allah instructed the Muslims to make a journal from Mecca to Medina, the prophets I send them was waiting for specific permission for himself to come to make a journal. And so so the story that we're going to pick up right now is actually, we're going to start from the perspective
of eyeshadow dilla. I'm happy because she tells the story, and there's a long narration Michelle, who Behati which tells a lot of this story, a lot of the story of what happened around the days of the prophets, I send them making hijra, and obviously her father, Abu Bakar, the Allah, I'm making Hijra as well. And so yes, as we said, so at this point, a permission has been given for the Muslims to make hijra, and I shall be allowed on Han. So Hangul hottie she says, she starts the narration by saying, kind of giving an indication of her age. So she was around six or seven around that around that age. And she says,
about ye way of patent Illa wahama. Yeah, the Danny Diem, she says, I don't remember I don't remember a single day except that my parents were not basically Muslim. And this
This tells her like the her own earliest consciousness of her parents is that she remembers her parents always being Muslim. And indeed, Abubakar Viola who accepted Islam before she was born. So she says this and she says, you know, the prophets I send them would often visit our house, he would come she says, I hardly remember a day in which the prophets I send them wouldn't come to, to our house and to and to visit us. And she says, When the Permission was given for hedging for the, for the Muslims to make a call from Mecca to Medina, Abu Bakar, the Allah who approached the prophets, I send them a bucket of being her father. And he asked permission to make kedron And the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And as I said, every companion the commands would specifically go and ask permission to make a joke. And the person replied with a, in a very beautiful way. He said, wait for I hope that Allah will give us permission. And now that's that's a very, it's a beautiful way. And it's a very intimate way of saying, and we've actually understood this, and he confirmed this, but what is he saying here? And you can drop it, drop this in the chat, like, what does he mean by this? I'll give you a minute to kind of, he said, Wait, for perhaps we will be given permission. Yes, sister, Sundar said to be included in that permission, meaning they want to go together. Right? And and so he said, Wait,
perhaps we will get permission, meaning we'll get permission to go together, we will travel together. And so a bucket of Allah. And he replies, just to affirm this. He says, Can I Can I have your companionship? And this means is, does this mean that I'll be able to accompany you? And the prophets I send them said yes, this is something that I am hoping for. And another narration, it mentions that in a different areas, not in this narration, or I should mention that the Lavon, I believe this is mentioned the CFO of this hack, that avocado Villa and began to cry, cry out of happiness, that he would be able to accompany the prophets, I send them on something that is so
very, very significant in this in this journey to Medina. And so what cuddled the alarm. And so if that tells us that Robocop said, okay, oh, Messenger of Allah, I'm going to prepare two camels, two camels for us to make make a joke. And then the prophets I send them, he said, Okay, if you prepare two camels, meaning one for yourself, and one for me that I'm not been, then let me pay you for it. And this is very interesting, because, you know, this is something that could have been taken for granted that this is a gift that has been given to the Prophets, I send them he's gonna give this gift. But percentage says, No, I want to I want to pay for this, I don't want you to, just gifted to
me. And this in my personal life to panelists is actually a very significant point. Because oftentimes, in a position of leadership or position where people kind of look up to you,
it can, a person can very quickly begin to feel entitled to gifts, and to be treated a certain way, and to have this certain respect amongst the people and, and sometimes, you know, people in leadership, and it's actually a very dangerous sign when somebody in the position of leadership
demands respect, you know, that's very dangerous, because respect is not something that you can force people to have for you. They either respect you or they don't. And because it's something which is which is in the heart, yeah, they can fear you. Or they can they can, you know, anytime somebody says, like, they may, you know, act like they respect you, that's not necessarily indicative of what is happening in their heart. And also, as a parent, like, there's a lesson in there for me as well. And the parents are listening to this, sometimes we we want our kids to respect us. And, you know, we'll say like, oh, that's disrespectful, like, you have to respect me.
And you know, the child may even like, out of fear of being being scolded, or whatever a child may, you know, change the way they're talking and talking to more respectful way, or whatever it may be. And I'm not saying we shouldn't remind our children, obviously, we should remind our children of the status of parents and elders and so on, so forth. But talking about building true
respect, it is in the heart, and how do you build respect in someone? Well, you have to give respect, to receive respect, it's just as simple as that. And the prophets, I send them in this way, if you look at his life, and the way he dealt with interaction with the Companions, he was always respectful, he gave respect, and even love, you know, it's very similar, you know, the Companions deeply dearly love the prophets, I send them and we find that it was because of my son showed a great amount of love and respect, that the Companions loved him. And this is also becomes evident in the younger companions, like the younger companions were, when I say younger, I mean, like kids, you
know, like three, four or five years old. You know, the older companions could understand this is this is the Messenger of Allah, right? This is, this is a very important person. But the younger companions, I mean, when we tell them, you know, 234 years old, like they don't really know they don't really care, they, you can tell them like this is somebody important. They'd be like, Yeah, whatever. I remember, you know, being
at a convention was a convention. And my son lathe had had accompanied me I think for the first time I took him to this convention. And I remember like, you know, as we're walking, we're seeing meeting different Misha and speakers. And whenever I'm like, late to check it out, this is, you know, so and so. And they like said, I'm letting go. And I'm like, No, you don't understand, like, this is an I can see like, in his face, like, like, he's trying to, like be, you know, to be hyped about it. But like, I was way more hype than he was. I'm like, you know, this is, this is also like, and he's like, oh, okay, okay. And then later on, I had to tell my son, you know, this is somebody very
important. Chef is one of my mentors that I look up to is very knowledgeable, like, okay, but kids, you know, they don't really care about this stuff. He cared more about, you know, people who are doing fun stuff around him. Right. But, but the, the younger companions, why did they love the process of them so much, because the President gave them love and attention. And he any and he gave them respect, and he would take time out of his day to that's a whole talk on his own, really, you know, how it is that I'm, you know, as the that said, connected with the younger companions, right. But the lesson here, for me personally, is, you know, that entitlement, that feeling of you know,
like, I deserve this, or, you know, I'm in this position to actually get this. This is why if you've ever seen me at a conference, especially these big conferences that have a bazaar in it,
it can a convention mass convention in here in the US, I try to avoid the bazaar, because one of the things that happens to me in the bazaar is
it's a little strange to talk about this, but I'm gonna say anyway, people want to come up to not come up to you, like when you walk by certain stalls or boots, we want to give you free stuff, right? Like, oh, * sounds like here. Here's some free stuff. And I've seen some sneakers walk around like bags and bags and bags and stuff. And I'm like, man, no judgement here. But for me, I'm like, Listen, my policy is like, I don't take free stuff. And they're like, No, should we love you just want to give you a good I'm like, I don't care. Like, I'll pay for it. And if I like it, I'll pay for it. You know, and if I want it, and I'll and that's why I try to actually spend minimal time
in the bizarre because it's just, I try to go when it's like the least amount of people there. They're just so like, if I because I sometimes I do want to shop myself as well. Like, I want to go see the what's in the bazaar, but it's hard to people want to just give you stuff. And we see this in some of the prophets, I send them the lowest price out and make this those who apply the pseudonym for sentiment, our lives. The swag bag, somebody said, yeah, lots of swag bags being passed around. But yeah, as I said, We see here that, you know, he says, No, I'm gonna, I'm gonna only if you allow me to pay for this camel, that I'm going to that I'm going to let you you know,
prepare this camel. So he's not there to just take take free stuff. And this is part of the the character, right, the amazing character of the prophets, I send them and then he doesn't want to take advantage of people. Because, you know, for me, personally, like, I think about this, right? Like, it may be like 99% of the people who want to give me stuff and they don't, you know, they do it out of love. But it may be that one person who gives it because everybody else is doing it. And they're like, man, look at this guy, you know, he, he's just taking advantage of his position. Right? Then may they may not have that love in their heart for me, because not because they don't
like me, you know, Inshallah, I think good people, but maybe they don't really know who I am, or they don't really care for who I am. And, and they're like, oh, you know, everybody's handing in free stuff. Like, look, he's just going in and going out and taking advantage of people. And this is why in some countries, some Muslim countries, I don't want to take names here. Right. But there's this stigma. And there's, you know, there's, this is a big issue of how some of the religious people
you know, you know, there's this impression that, you know, they, they use their, their position in the deen for, like worldly gain, and even in some Muslim countries for political gain, right that because of their religious knowledge or their religious position, they use it to take advantage of people. And this is something that we have to be very, very careful of. And this applies to any of us in any of our positions, we need to be very, very careful of being in positions like this. And I know this is a small point in the seat of the process element. And it's actually a small point amongst, among this, this incident of the Hijra. But to me, this stood out very much. And one of the
things that I'd like for you to do as well is, you know, as you hear, and I'm sure you're doing this already, but as you hear these stories,
you know, this this month, and you know, attend different lectures, try to apply these to your own life, right, like your own lives, what, what's what's happening in your life? And like, what are the lessons that we can derive? So even in the seminar that I send them, it's very important for us to start thinking about our own lives. Anyhow. So going back to the story, so I have the law and says, Okay, so I said, I'm said, she narrates the postal worker said, Okay, I'm going to prepare two camels. And there was now a waiting period, and some of our scholars mentioned that this waiting period was almost four months was four months that the permission didn't come for the process and
attempt to make Hijra specifically like him personally now. Now, here's where we get to sort of a
And finally, verse number 30. The incident which which was the
was is what triggered the specific agent of the prophets.
And this now we're going to make a little bit of a transition into the Muslim email. And this narration is by even Ambassador the lockdown diplomat, who mentioned the sword and fell verse number 30. And and why this this, this verse was revealed. Even Abbas tells us that
on one particular night, and this is before the President had made a hinge on the leaders of the whorish came together, in a place known as Donald Nadella. And this is in the middle of the night. It's very, it's a secretive, very private meeting, only the leaders of the tribes have been told about this. And the average person didn't even know that this was taking place. And there were representatives from all of the tribes that were there that night, and except for the tribe of Banu Hashim, why, because that is the tribe of the prophets of Allah and send them and so they did not want to invite the the leaders of bundle Hashem, because they knew that in the jehadi tradition of
these tribes, that they cannot, they cannot plan to harm a member of their own tribe. And they don't want to put them in that position. So they kind of left them out even Ebola, who hated the process, and them was not invited to this gathering, because it would it for him in you know, the Jahai customs, this would be, like, conflict of interest for the lack of a better term, that he could not outright plan and plot to harm the prophet to like send them because what's happening now is that the whole age, they're now seeing that the Muslims are slowly making Hijra. They're leaving the city of Mecca. And now they're worried that if somebody
that it's only a matter of time before the party has had them himself leaves and makes him and the fear for them is that if the process and it makes hijra, then now they are no longer able to control the message of Islam, they're not able to control what the President is doing see in Mecca, they could, you know, control the message they can try and harm press send them they can try in and silence in our settlements. Saddam is reciting the Quran and giving Dawa, they have control in the city of Mecca. But if I said it makes him like, we're going to lose control over the spread of the message of Islam. So they're, they're getting worried now. And that's why they decided to gather
here the whole point of that gathering was, what do we do with Mohammed, suddenly, I tell them, we got to do something. And so they didn't want to put a hula hoop and the tribe of Bani Hashim in this position, where they would have to agree to harm the Prophet sallallahu send them
you know, those people those specific leaders from from this specific tribe with our setup, they weren't even invited to this. Now. It is also mentioned and this some of them are scholars said that there's some weakness in this narration. But I believe is mentioned in even this happened. Others have mentioned as well. But the the, the, the, the story of the old man. And I actually tell this story in my class, the old man so this, this basically this, it has been mentioned that when the gathering was about to start, an old man knocked on the door, there's a knock on the door, they opened it up as an old man. Nobody recognize this old man and they said, like, who are you? Why are
you here? And this old man, he says that I know why you have gathered here and I'm come here to help you. I am one of the leaders of next of a legend legends a different area in the Arabian Peninsula. Even Ibis says that this was the chiffon. This was IBLEES himself, who had come to take part in this plot of harming the Prophet sallallahu, I knew he was sending them. And so he says, I'm going to help you and plan and I'm going to make sure this mission of yours is successful. And and so they allowed him to enter. Okay, now this, this meeting starts, this gathering now starts. And
the there's a couple of suggestions that are made, the first suggestion that is made is let's imprison him in a house, let's basically put them in chains and imprison him. And so now going back to this verse, in Surah, unfollowers number 30 Allah Who Subhana Allah says, are the bIllahi min ash shaytaan that regime were in the Yom Kippur will be Contadina CAFO that remember meaning Oh prophets I send them when the disbelievers conspired conspired against you wipe leaves to be took. So this is the first conspiracy that they came up with. This is the first plan. This is that they came up with Leith be Touka this is like loose we took almost means like to hold someone in one in one position.
But what this means is to imprison the prophets I send them right so this is what is being mentioned here. So this is the first suggestion that is made. And the old man who is there he believes that she upon he says will law he will
Allah He had no computer it. He says, No by Allah. This is not the correct suggestion, this is not the correct opinion, we shouldn't do this. He says, If you were to imprison him, the news of his imprisonment will go out and it will spread. And then we're basically going to have a war on our hands, right? So we don't want to fight a war, we don't want to cause a problem that he has support in Medina is going to cause some problems. And so this is shut down by the Shia pawn. And then going back to the verse, Allah is kind of data says,
Oh, you have to to look right. I'll usually do because I was trying to add on now mentions that three suggestions are made. So we're going to jump to the third one, which is ubiquity joke, to exile you to take you out of your take you out basically of the land that person was living in. And so this is actually the second suggestion that is made that why don't we just expel him from our land from from makup exile him take him somewhere very, very far away, like basically what this means is to capture and press send them. And both of these, both of these suggestions require capture so capital, or send them in prison him or capture him, and take him somewhere far away from
his land, exile him, turn him turn him away. And then now the chiffon once again is old man. He says, he says, love Allah, He Maha Nakamura, he says, By Allah, this is not the correct suggestion. Because if you expel him, no matter where he goes, he is going to gather a following. He's gonna get stronger, and then he's going to come back and he's going to take over, right so this is not a good plan. Now, Abu Lahab was not there in this gathering, but Abuja Hill was there, and Abuja, Han is sitting there getting frustrated. He's kind of like sitting there squirming, and he wants to say something. And eventually someone says, Hey, what do you have to say? Like, go ahead, like, you're
obviously you're, you're like itching to say something. Go ahead, boo, Jen stands up. And he says, why don't we just say what everyone is thinking. But no one really has like the nerve. No one has the guts to really say this. And aren't we all thinking that we should just kill him? And so Allah is trying to out of mentions in this verse, Oh, yeah, to look Oh, to kill you. And this is the suggestion that is given, hey, listen, let's just kill him. Now. This is not a new suggestion, the suggestion had been made in the past. The problem with this was that to murder the process and men would be gold, it would would mean that they would have to go to war with blue Hashem. Right. And
that's, as I said, that's why they didn't invite blue Hashem, to this gathering, even though you know, we have, we have a hula hoop from from below, Hashem, who's related, and I send them would want a hug person, but they knew that they can't outright just kill murder the process. And that's why he wasn't even invited. And some of our scholars, when they explain this incident, they kind of they mentioned that, that and it's not literally mentioned in this narration, but it is understood that,
that that was always the intended purpose of the gathering. Like they always wanted to kill him. And they had gathered there, basically, to figure out how to kill him. But you know, they, in the beginning of this gathering, people didn't want to just come out, right and say, Let's just kill him. And so that's why they made these other suggestions. Like, let's exile him, let's imprison him. Let's do this, do that. But it was always the purpose was to murder the prophets, Italian. And so this is why some Adela Bucha. Han is getting frustrated. He's like, why are you? Why are we talking about what dancing around? You know, the main topic here? Let's talk about what we really came here
to talk about murders versus sentiment. And so he says outright, he says, let's just do it. Let, that's what we came here to decide. Let's just do it. And then at this point, the old man, he says, he replies, and he says, he says, Now I'm allowed Luma. Allah had that logic. He says, a lot you you had the budget, he says, the correct opinion is what this man has said, this is the correct opinion, this is the correct thing to do. And then some scholars mentioned that it is the Iblees himself, who tells them how to do how to go about doing this. And so he gives a suggestion, it says, Look, you know, we've always tried to murder him, but we can't outright go and murder him. So what we do is,
we gather one representative from all of the major sub tribes of the Quraysh and they all take part in this murder together. Because if battle Hashem you know, by by tribal law, like if the person was murdered, they have to go to war with the murder, that tribe of the murdering of the murderer, right? Sorry to that tongue twister, the tribe of the murderer, they gotta go to war with the tribe of the murderer. But if, if there are many tribes that are responsible for this murder, then they all can't, then they can't then battle Hashem can't go to war with all of these tribes. So they say let's just get one representative from each. And some mentioned that they gathered a young people.
They said, let's get some young people to do this. Why? Because we if it's a young person committing this murder, we can say look these
Just, you know, overzealous young people, like we didn't want to do this. But you know, they, they took things in there, they took matters in their, in their own hand, we as the elders, we did not want to do this, but they are that with the young people, they did it, they were being foolish. And so now, but Hashem will have no choice but except the blood money, because obviously they can't go to war with all of these tribes, so well, and bliss, the share pod says, you know, even we, as a blood money, that's not a problem, we'll we'll give the blood money, because that's all they will have to resort to. And they all agreed that this is what should be done. And so this is how the
murder of the process centum was, was plotted. And so once again, going back to this verse, and sort of and thought, Allah says, what a VM cool, we can live in a cat photo. And remember when the disbelievers conspired, why the youth B took to do to capture you basically, they imprison you, Yoko to look to murder you or kill you, oh, you'll reduce or to exile you William Corona, young Corolla will la hadal make it in that they plan? They plot, right? They plotted this murder of the process. And then and Allah also plans and Allah is the best of planners. And so what happened is that this all happened by the knowledge of the will of Allah who's patologia Allah, the angel Jibreel went to
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and informed him that they are planning your murder. Tonight, like it's going to happen tonight. And they went and sold the parts to send them so make him and now this is kind of this is the moment where the President was given permission to make hijra, what is the price that I'm doing some rushes to the House have a bucket on the alarm, and I shut on the ALLAH and he tells us that he she says this is a day that I'm that I'm never going to forget that the prophets I send them came with his wife with a scarf wrapped over his his face. And he came he entered the house and we knew that something serious was about to happen. And I sent him
says to book it on the Allah and that permission has been given for us to emigrate and and the other bucket of the ALLAH and he says once again oh messenger of Allah that Allah allow for me to be your companion or not. Even though the person I'm had already told him wait, perhaps you're gonna go with me. But he was he was waiting and but he was because he wasn't sure. And the percent of says yes, Allah has given he says I beg you by my mother and might be a be one me I beg you by my mother my father as Allah giving you permission and the price that I'm says yes
Allah has given permission and some scholars say that it is at this point that Abu Bakar the hola I'm began to cry right he began to cry and and I have the Allah I'm she says I never saw my my father cry in this in this manner that after you know the way he cried now upon giving this given this news of of making hmm and this is the point where someone said friendship goal absolutely absolutely friendship go that's a that's definitely a friendship goal to amazing people 100 And so at this point the permission is given they basically gather the supplies avocado had to put had already prepared to camels. There's a side story and I'm running out of time here so how
what is my time by the way?
At the 40 minute mark and you got eight more minutes inshallah eight more minutes. Okay, I'm gonna try and wrap this up.
But there's a little bit of a side story here of a one of my favorite female companions, a smullins eviva cannot be alone. I didn't have on Houma that she what happened in this situation. She She was he was older than the Isola de la and so she was helping
prepare the supplies and all had to be done in a hurry, right? Because now they're coming to murder the prophets I send them and they have to leave like they got to get out of there. And so a smile on the Allah who I am and she narrates this herself as much as my body. She says, I prepared the food for the journey of the Messenger of Allah and my father, Abu Bakar. For them to make the hijra, she said, I put the food in a container, I had to tie the container. But I had nothing to tie with. So she said it all happened in a hurry that I did not bring any anything to tie a tie with. And and she said by a lot. I couldn't find anything except my own waist belt, right? Her waist belt. She says
that, and she cut off a piece of her dress, and she tied the food with that. And she gave it to the Senate. And this is where she got her her quinean her or her niqab we should say her title, which does anyone know what her title is the Possessor of the two bands? Yes, that's correct, which is that a Nipah pain, right the possessor of the one or the the woman with two belts or two ties. And that is once again this incident is so significant in the Sierra in the life of persons and them that
You see so many things going back to this, this, this this very incident? And yes, someone said on YouTube yes, there's a talk that I gave on my bucket, definitely go check it out. I think I did it it was through on marketing as well as one on one marketing events. So check it out, we go over that in more detail. But so the food is prepared and they make heads up. Now this is where we jump to the advertised. I was just sort of DSC, verse number nine, in which Allah who's penalty added says, Well, John, I'm invading the ad him said, The woman hunted for him said to O'Shea now whom for whom now you will soon that we put before them a barrier, and we put behind them a barrier and covered
them so they they were not able to they are not able to see now, I want to be very clear here. This is a general verse that is dealing with the state of the disbelievers
when they have rejected the message of Islam. Now, some of our scholars have said that this is also relevant in this story of the prophets. I send them making Hendra where does it come about? Well, there is a narration and this is mentioned is how
and there's so there isn't a chain that has given the scholar even his hat who is a historian who's you know, someone who married the seal all the practices, and that is one of the main seals that we go back to. He mentioned this incident but the problem is he doesn't mention the chain. Right, he just says even Ibis.
Ibis said this happened, but he doesn't mention any chain with it. So some scholars have said we can't really accept it for sure. As a fact. Other scholars have said, you know, it's okay to narrate the story because it's how it is narrated alojado. We're gonna mention anyway, there's nothing necessarily there's nothing wrong that is mentioned and nothing that goes against the standard, as mentioned this. So Inshallah, two out of this, there's no harm in mentioning this part of the story. But this part of the story is that the prophets, Allah I sent him when he was leaving, and he was at this point he was out, he was still residing in the house of Hadees out on the Levant house. And
before he left, he told me that on the Allah who I'm, who would also use very, it was young, who's a young person at that time, and he would spend time in the house of the presses. And then, so personally, I'm told the idea on the right, to remain behind in his bed in the bed of the Prophet sallallahu, I knew he was sending them. So if they would come and check, they would see that I need that someone is still based there. So they would assume that precedent is still there. And this is where there's a little bit of a problem with this story. Because, you know, it's not that much of a failsafe because you just lift up the covers, and they would see that it is ideal, they love it,
number one, number two, if the coming to harm the prophets I send them then they would harm it. Allah Allah, as we said, Allah, it is a little bit problematic, this part of the story, but as I said, I'm going to mention anyway because it is, we actually come and take it if you if you've studied any Sierra, we take it as fact, like this absolutely happened. I want to mention here that there's, you know, there is a lot of, you know, we don't know for sure if this actually happened, but continuation of this is also that the process and them, he placed it on the Allah is in his bed, and he walked out from his house, but the young men had already gathered there to murder the
prophets, I send them and the prophecies have left his house reciting Sulak Yeah, scene. And, you know, I know in certain cultures, you know, we love to recite sort of the scene and this is one of the incidents that is mentioned with that, but the press send them recited sort of the scene. And when I said and recited which I had them invade the ad and said don't woman hunting him said that, and we put before them a barrier and behind them a barrier for a machine now home and we covered them, the homeowner, you will see your own and they are not able to see that it is at this point that they were not able to see the profit syllabi, send them so he walked right between their ranks.
And also even mishap mentions, as mentioned, even this happened, I said, I took some dirt, and he sprinkled it on top of their heads. And they did not know where this dirt is coming from. Now, as a lesson here, for us, it is very interesting that we find the ability to see being taken away from them
in a physical sense, but in a spiritual sense. There's a larger theme here. And the larger theme is that the person lived amongst the Quraysh with the message of Islam for 13 years. And this is why the hedgehog took place in the 1313 year of of the Dow as I said earlier, 30 year since the process hadn't gotten the message of Islam, and yet there are those amongst the population who did not accept the message of Islam. So it is it is they weren't blinded to the message of Islam, right, that they're blinded to the message of Islam, that there was it's as if they were covered up. And even though the truth was there for them, they were not able to see it. And this is why sometimes
you have people who are brought up in Muslim households even and they're taught Islam but
they turn away from Islam, they don't accept Islam. And there's many, many stories like that. And there's people who maybe later on in their life, they they, you know, properly accept Islam even though their parents are Muslim, but it's as if, you know, they had access to the truth. But they were not able, they did not access the truth that Allah whose parents Allah had given to them. And we find even the Quraysh later on, you know, the Quraysh, during the, during the opening part of Maccha. The chorus accepted Islam, but that was years and years later, right. And there's a there's that parallel there with many Muslims who, you know, and you can, you can even take it to a larger
level here, Muslims living in Muslim countries who, you know, may not really you know, care much about the deen or for them, it's just like, almost as if it's a culture. Right? You know, Islam is viewed as a culture rather than a complete way of life revelation for a long time to Anna, *ty outlaws have a lot of data. And there's that lesson in there for us. And so this is one of the things that I wanted to mention real quick, and hopefully check those out, you'll get time to reflect upon this as well. The other point I wanted to mention here is the mecca of Allah who's going to add the plot and the plan, Allah who's kind of the data, that sometimes we are in a
difficult situation, or we face some hardship, and we feel that our enemies have an upper hand or they have one against us. And what we don't realize is that obviously, everything happens by the will and the permission of Allah who has kind of the idea that there is goodness in this that we may not be able to see in the time the situation that we are in. So you know, a person could say, Why did Allah allow them to gather and to plot the murder of the prophets I send them? Well, Allah who's Panama to Allah says, William Corona, William Kula, that they they make they made all these plans, right? They hatched this plan, this plot in the darkness of the night, this this evil plan that
emerges, I send them but it happened by the will and the permission of Allah Spreitzer, Allah, YM could Allah and Allah is the best of planners, Allah laid on making, meaning the ultimate plan is the plan of Allah who's kind of like the data. That is why in this life, even we see sometimes people who are evil, that they're that that they that Allah gives them ease in this life, that they live an easy life, or Allah allows them to oppress other people. It's sometimes it can be difficult for us to understand this and say, and we think to ourselves, like why does Allah allow such an evil person to do number one to do evil things? Number two, often say, Have you ever noticed that some of
the worst people live very long lives? And if you haven't noticed this, but like the biggest, like oppressors, and wrongdoers, and like dictators who like Milla protectors have murdered all these people, whatever, they just never seem to die, right. And
we're gonna have to edit this out in the recording.
But yeah, some of these people you're like, you think to yourself, like men, they live like they live into like, 80s 90s like, I say, what is this dictator gonna die? Right? Like, what is the login to take their life? And, and, and I know, we may not say that out loud, but it's true. Some of these evil people live very long lives. Remember, William could Allah Allah plans will law handle the Macarena? Allah is the best of planners, our scholars tell us a very, very deep and interesting point of why Allah sometimes allows people to live and as someone mentioned the comments. It's not just testing them, it is a it is a form of punishment for them. Because here's the thing, Allah does
not Allah will not punish anyone,
you know, unjustly. So no matter how much, you know, we may do that, as human beings, we don't like someone, and we'll go after them, we'll say bad things about them, well, we may and will definitely probably go overboard and talking bad about them, and so on and so forth. But Allah will never bring any type of bidding bring a punish punishment, someone that they don't deserve. So it's what their hands what they did with their own hands. And so if if a person is going to be punished in the AKA, then they have to earn it that the earn that punishment is weird as it sounds to say that and so Allah extends their life because it extends the amount of harm that they do. And because they have
done more harm, they have more to be accountable for those of you who have taken deception.
You know how people who have taken deception, the study of the sheer fun. The biggest example of this, we mentioned, is who he believes the shaytaan himself. Allah allowed him to live and you know, he made the art to Allah. He said, I'd be founded on Isla yom, Yom Righto. And he said, My Lord, allow me to live not for like 10 years, 20 years, 30 years. You know, we think we think about these bad people they live, let's say 100 years, we're like, that's a long life. Allah allowed a bliss to live until the Day of Judgment 1000s
Hundreds and 1000s Millions, a lot of how many years? Allah allows him to live. Why? Because Allah said in Nikka pada in the community I'm very new are amongst those who have been given respite, I'm going to allow you to live. Meaning that in Allah says amongst others, meaning there's others who will be very similar. I will allow them to live as a form of punishment, because at least we'll have the worst punishment because he lives the longest life and he's done the most harm Allah has power to Allah protect us. Allah says in Surah Ibrahim, verse number 40 217, Allah ha ha fina, I'm a I'm a I'm a I'm a middle of Vani moon, do not think well I have an alarm clock and I do not think Allah is
unaware of the things that I'm I'm no volume on that which the volley moon they do. We think of learning we think of wrongdoing, depressing all that kind of stuff. Don't think Allah is unaware of that, in Me a Hero whom Allah is delaying them. neoman discusses a feeling of assault on a date. And literally this means like a horrific day, a day in which people will stare in horror, any type of punishment you think in this life does not compare to the punishment that will be May Allah protect all of us, the punishment of the afterlife, the punishment of the Hellfire, that is a day. So when we look at someone we say, you know, Allah has left this law on him, right? Live, remember that the
punishment of the Hereafter is far more suited, far more severe than any punishment in this life. And we ask Allah who is planning to audit to protect us. And once again, I'm going to end with this inshallah I know, I'm over my time, I apologize. But for ourselves, sometimes we may think I must be good with God because my life is great. How many people think that way? Right? That, you know, I know I don't, maybe I don't pray or maybe how to do this or how to do these certain things. I know I'm not the greatest Muslim, but God must love me a lot must love me because look, I'm chilling in life. You know, I got a great job, I got a great wife, I got a great husband, I got this, you know,
my life is Chilean, so I must be fine with what Allah as well. That is a very dangerous way of thinking. That is why a believer is always between hope and fear. Yes, we are hopeful in the Mercy of Allah is trying to Allah, but also we fear that we will be held accountable for what Allah has given to us. If Allah has given us comfort and ease in this life, that we are accountable for that. Are we grateful to Allah for that ease and that comfort that Allah has given to us and grateful means one major aspect of gratefulness is obedience of Allah. How do we show gratitude to Allah? By obeying Allah who's kind of like the IRA, I ask Allah who's trying to protect us in this life, ask
Allah to protect us from the deception of the Shri upon Allah whom I mean, if I've said anything that is correct, and true, then indeed that is a blessing and a mercy of Allah subhanaw taala is anything that I've said which is incorrect. And ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive me for that. And Allah Who Subhan Allah to Allah knows best? Is Zach malaco Shaq said it was not enough time with you we've been missing I had a zoom I do that I feel really bad was the fastest 47 minutes of my life to huddle up but is that gonna look fair?

All right. I've got this share screen.
Yes, shamans IG. We mentioned earlier Shaman was doing a series on IG called Lost in Translation. So I'll drop that here chat here as Yeah, perfect. Like,
you know, Hamdulillah you know, I, you know, this is a very interesting story about this. It's the how this this came about this series. We were recording something like I run an organization called teenagers, right? So, you know, for Muslim teenagers. And they're, they're struggling with different things. So we helped them and we were recording some stuff for for these teenagers and they were not prepared. They were like, they were like taking their time. They're just wasting like, I don't know, they're teenagers, right? They're like, Oh, I don't know the answer. I didn't know the question. So I'm like the guy who had the camera setup and I said, You know what? Why don't I just literally like
I walked in we were in the masjid. I'm like, You know what, let me let me record like 15 sessions 15 episodes of lost in translation. And I will do like etymology of words. And like, that's why you see I have no Toby on I've got like my hair or you know, like, I just literally went there. But though I got and recorded everything in I think whatever it was half an hour 45 minutes and then we you know, came out and it was like sometimes there are things that are written I had a completely different series planned.
And then like we walk in we did it and I watched I tried I'm like you know what, I'm not recording another series. This is good. Like Allah wanted this to happen and it's gonna stick so um, delay was a it was a it was a very nice moment when that happened. All right, can we start having people come up? Ready guys? Let's get some hands in sha Allah so whoever wants to start off our resuscitation get the edger first be the first foreigner I see a son from Dallas who they thought and we have

HD HD sent the one in
the same home the home. You'll be sleeping on. Masha Allah Masha, Allah Where did you learn to recite
In Libya, in Libya, where are you from? Libya? Not originally from Sudan, but Libya and now I'm in Canada. Mashallah. MashAllah did you learn Muhammad are there two how to recite for an indifferent Muhammad? No. Okay. All right. Okay, but it was nice mashallah barnacle avec amazing. May Allah subhanaw taala bless you may Allah give you may Allah allowed the recitation of Quran to penetrate your heart whenever you recite Inshallah, that was very surreal. I did not want to stop her. It was just like, so amazing to hear.
And, you know, like, you know, so those of I don't know if anybody knows here, or 55 new messages. I'm just like, going there right now. The chat. Okay, so how many of you know anything about maklumat? Like, because she's since he recited so well, I think it's a it's a it's a dimension of the Quran. How many of you know anything about Muhammad in general?
I'll get into that. But again, I just wanted to see.
Yes, different Matamata different recitations? No, they're not different recitations. There are different tunes in which Quran is recited? No, there are 10 lapel mic, no, those are the some people are getting it as far as getting their Saba, there's just there's no one. So there's the seven or 10 different ways to recite the Quran, which was revealed divine. And there are these mahkamah which are basically the tunes. These are the tunes that were accustomed to people in different places. What happened here? I did it on purpose, so we can see, they're describing to me, okay, so that's fine. Yeah, so so basically what happens is, you allow these mahkamah these these different tunes in
different regions have different ways. Like it's almost like you know, every country has got their folklore tune that they're accustomed to, like if you're from Punjab, you have a certain beat and you have so these were basically known tunes, I don't want to use the word beats, but there were known tunes that were found throughout different regions. And based on where they were, for example, no one is a place there was a known tune of no one which was the predominant tune and they would they would recite in it and as people when you memorize and when you go through different martial law, somebody put the entire family over there, Elijah them by Yachty hijas. So you know, in all of
these formats, and you know, for example, if you read it now, one, it's different, the same Surah will sound differently so when you're reciting for example, in the one you were like, Alhamdulillah, you know, beat me in a llama Nila Haim you Mima? Nikki Woombye Dean and then the same surah you will recite because if you want to recite something sad, right you and he was like, oh, so how I have memorized it because I've memorized like a poem. It's like it goes like, Well, I've been why one the will occur these
car now load the Wi Fi daily to so that's the tune for now. And what are the hormones Slava Ah,
so frozen in and after no one comes Saba, it has this feeling of sadness. So when you read like an ayat of like, Allah subhanaw taala punish punishing somebody right or punishment, you say was the coalescing qlf Oh, Isla Jahan zoom out all that when the people who are disbelievers will be forced and driven to hellfire. Now knowing these mahkamah are necessary because when the IRS are talking about something and you bring the right MACOM that's when you feel that the Quran is really talking to you right and that's a dimension you know, because she wrote resided in a beautiful Mom You know, and I thought that was necessary to touch upon let's begin inshallah. How do I bring my screen back?
Do I bring it back where you you have to start another screen share
where did my screen go? Out?
You don't have control over my screen? No, I don't. Where did it go?
IG IG the entire window went somewhere. This is this
No, it's okay. I'm just just how did that happen view I'll open the window that's fine but that was a
put under calm last read and we go a little bit at each other. I got it.
Okay, let's begin shall obey the law. So if I can have somebody come up and we'll do collective reflection, we'll have lots of time for that today inshallah. Okay, so have you lower your hands guys, if you guys are not reflecting inshallah and raise your hand now if you're interested in reflecting on the
Add that we just started. Beautiful. Shira actually Ronnie from New Delhi Bismillah Bismillah.
All right. So have you were you there in the previous sessions that I've done?
It's a familiar name. I think Sharon has been here. Hello? Yes. Okay, you were there when we talked about these photofile Moka Pot we talked about these why these letters are there are I did I not mention this here? I'm doing so many classes. I don't remember if I mentioned, I think you didn't?
What are some of the meanings?
Sorry. So what are some? What What Why does Allah subhanaw taala bring these little film aka dark? Right, these separated words.
So like, kind of their multiple interpretation. You know, some people say that it's like a way to address Prophet Mohammed Salah la vida, he was salam. And so I'm talking about I had mentioned have said, Did I mention this here? Or I did not. I did, right. I did. Yeah, I mentioned you probably missed that lesson. Okay. Anybody else remembers that in the chat? Anybody else remembers what could be one of the reasons why Allah subhanaw taala
one of the reasons it chose to show us that he knows that we don't know beautiful the one of the things is that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to to know that there are this Yacine is made up of the same yacht and the same scene that if it shows up somewhere else, then you're able to understand you know, if he shows up somewhere else, then you're able to understand that but at this point you're not going to be able to understand the second thing we said was that it indicates the the purity of provinces Trump's message and his truthfulness because Rasulullah Susteren does not know how to enunciate, yeah, seen. He's illiterate. You can call something a cat but you can't say C A T cat
unless you're illiterate. And the third reason is Allahu Allah will be on our duty that Allah knows. The third is Allah knows the meanings of these things. The fourth is the meanings of these things are so evident that none of the Sahaba has ever have to ask prophecies to them about this. It was so evident. They never had to ask it they knew what this meant. Okay, over here Yeah. Seen. There's multiple meanings have been mentioned about it. Allahu Allah will be more or the He Allah really knows what these meanings are. I'm not going to go into these meanings. Generally whenever rueful Maka part come, they follow right after that. They are followed by
Quran there followed by some mention of Quran some mention of curriculum of Allah, some mention of that, except one, which was in the last hurrah that we had mentioned over there. The second point of the debate over here. And this is a funny story, when we were teaching teach when we were learning to read my chef had mentioned this, you know,
in his he was a very funny, like, you know, he is a light hearted person, like, you know, very light hearted chef. We're studying to drink with him. So this person comes and he wanted to learn to read and you know, he comes to the chef and he's like, chef, I want to learn to read, he's like, Yeah, okay. And then he starts off, he's like, I will be learning in a shape on the other one a gene, this Neela here last minute walking. And he starts off and he says, yes, what looper? hotkey, because he saw Yes, it's pronounced it's like there's a photographer. And he said, Yes, the chef said no. Well for Anil, Hakeem, this is wrong. So he responded.
And that was the funniest thing ever. Like, you know, this guy started with all sincerity. He's like, I'm gonna read surah Yaseen today and he looked at it and he didn't know what to say. And he's like, yes, well look or an ill.
So that's a really funny story. This these are herd of animals. But then Allah subhanaw taala starts off with what Anil Hakeem in see era and Ciara
in Shira, and Sheila, all right, come on, let's go. So one
you know, recitation, what's your pondering? So we want to ponder upon this together well Quran in hacking, why is Allah subhanaw taala mentioning about the wisdom of Quran over here
any any any guesses?
Okay, so I will explain No problem it's okay. I mean, I appreciate your cards are coming out mashallah, that's amazing. Right. So, again, remember we have to link it to the previous verses that happened. So the previous verses the ended the last verses kind of like ended with what in a hookah Alima pudiera. Allah smart Allah says womankind, hola, hola. eurogenes a home min shaitan for some it will have that there's nothing that can incapacitate Allah subhanaw taala in the heavens and the earth and he is definitely overpowering everything. I Lehmann. He has the knowledge and he's pudieron in nanopi
In moto enough to go market demo I found a home. And Allah is like we are very well aware of every single thing. What Allah displays his power in the circle factor, it's all about Allah is the originator Alhamdulillah, Allah the file that is sent out he is the one who is the originator of heavens in the earth, the Originator of the heavens of the earth that has created this construct that has created you, me, all of us our existence, all of this was out of wisdom.
Do you really think that his Kurama is going to be free of wisdom so he iterates that, that when you look at all creation, you see Allah has wisdom everywhere.
Allah is Hakeem. Everything is created with portion. And Allah is emphasizing that while Quran in Hakeem likewise as his Quran, it is filled with wisdom. Okay, it is filled with wisdom.
I don't understand that comment. Did you see that comment? I don't know. It's tearing it buzz. Yeah, what did she say?
This to screen is also a problem because I see chat showing up and distracts me. The one screen was like I don't see the chat. I'm just doing my thing. Anyhow, in Nokia, let me tell mursaleen and then the second thing that Allah subhanaw taala is trying to bring about is is what about
rasool Allah Azza wa sallam that indeed you are from the messengers. These two are primarily the issue. These two are primarily the main issues that people have today with what has been Muslims profits, profit over profits that are Salam. And number two is the message of the Quran, this entire Surah The purpose of this surah is to confirm that rissalah The messenger Hood of Prophets, Allah Salem, number two will birth and that we are all going to be resurrected and the entire surah is filled with evidentiary grounds for you and I to have certitude in these two things, perfection and prophethood and it is truthful, its truthfulness while bath, that we are all going to be
resurrected. Those are the two primary things that the surah tackles. And then we all know that assault Allah is is the Messenger of Allah, then ye specify in Nicola Meenal mursaleen and this is part in Arabic grammar, sometimes you need to understand this this word in NACA is my resource. It is not over here, so if you guys can see my screen over here, this in NACA, you have to like those who know Arabic know that you will have to bring it here. So technically the sentences in NACA laminal Mursaleen. Wa in NACA, Allah Salatin was stopping but because that's redundant in Arabic does not need those redundancies that indica is is what is dropped down. And it's understood that in
Nicola Meenal mursaleen, indeed you are the messenger and indeed you are on the straight path. So Autumn was set off leaving was stuffy was stuffing this strange path? Then Allah clarifies all of us that's one thing which is then Z level is easier Rahim.
He says this Quran was revealed or you've already Kench clarified for us Quran and Hakeem is Quran that is wise. But then Allah is like this has been revealed by Eliza is the one with all might and or Rahim the Most Merciful. Why all of this preamble is given to us anyone
what is it okay Lena? Yes. Why is all of these introductions given to us give you kind of like think about array Allah is like talking about Quran Al Hakim in Nicola Mila. mursaleen Allah Serato Musa team than Zillow as is the Rahim so it's just emphasis on two things prophet hood and Quran prophet in the Quran, but multiple ways. Why is this emphasis necessary? Go ahead. Lima. Lima, Lima.
Shiomi. Yes, yes. Sorry. isn't like a new? Yes, I would like to say maybe because back in the day, the Quraysh they weren't you know, to, they weren't believing in Allah right. But the disbelievers in the Quran as well. So that's just more emphasis because whenever you have an audience that doesn't believe you have to put emphasis, like a lot, emphasize a couple of times for them to believe. So that's why I guess Allah Tala, he emphasized those points a lot so that the challenging audience could believe it more, and they could see that this is a real thing. You know, it's not something that just speech beautiful. And in remember, this was revealed in where
this was really in Makkah. And as for the revelation, you know, in terms of Revelation, this was around the 40 or 41st Surah to be revealed. So this was early on, and this message had
To be iterated multiple times to them. Yeah seen in a while for Arnold hacking in Nicola Mina Morsani. Tim was talking we're not misguided Tenzin Allah's username. The second reason is it's also so to reassure the people who believed in Prophet sallallahu sallam, you believe in promises Salam, the people, the Sahaba, that were there to reassure their Eman that this is not they can have all the propaganda against Prophet sallallahu sallam, it really doesn't matter. Allah is affirming that in the beginning of the surah over here, and then Allah emphasizes and he says all of this is important because of one thing. The tune zero coma mountain era about a home for home about a home
for home life, you don't
that you may guide, you may warn a woman or a group of people around the era that their forefathers were not warned before, when they're about home for home life, you don't and they are in a state of law, they are in a state of heedlessness. Now over here, I wanted to spend some time today just give me one second I wanted to spend some time about one other thing
article okay right here okay. So, this is an interesting part. So, the translation over here and I wanted to bring this out because sometimes there are certain sometimes I wanted to bring this out because sometimes what happens is there are certain elements about a surah that is mentioned or certain certain meanings that exists in the TFs here, but the translator he just chooses one of the multiple translations that do exist and those type of translations can exist can change based on one word, this word map
okay, this word map, so this word ma as per if you if you if anybody knows little bit Arabic can have multiple meanings okay multiple meanings is word can have multiple meanings. One of the meanings that is mentioned literally a comma number one is a na Natvia right not MA and mafia mafia don't need to worry about the grammar it's it indicates it negates whatever comes after a woman my own Zerah Agha among that group of people, their forefathers were not warned. Number one.
Let's call them and mafia. The second one is is Ma B ma NA comma. Okay, MA MA in the meaning of life wise, okay, like karma. So the meaning would be Leto in the era. So you may warn Omen, a group of people ma on the robber at home, like their forefathers were worn before. So the meaning completely changes here. Are you guys with me?
So the first one is negation, not the second man is likewise or like, so Leto, Indira Coleman. So you want a group of people, the way their forefathers were warned?
That's one meaning. The other meaning is you weren't a group of people whose forefathers were not warned. Two different meanings. Okay, like was there's a third meaning.
As you're right, it's okay, I won't confuse you guys. Okay, two are good. Two are good for today. Two are good. But this, this is to give you this, this this plurality of meaning which is embedded in the Arabic language and which is lost. In in, in translation. And that's why I'm a very big believer in us understanding these subtle differences. And we're able to then, you know, we're able to then understand and appreciate and we're able to understand why we have so much plurality and so much nuance in our religion, because that one word Mark could have so many meanings. If somebody used the word not and translated as not, it is fine. If somebody use the word Matt as likewise
that's also fine. But if you start getting into ayat of legislation, and you start using these words alternately and you say man over here is negation, or this is a possibility of likewise which the grammar rules allow. The entire meaning can change law. For example, Allah subhanaw taala says, Consider a common Allah He Nura Kitabi in that indeed from Allah subhanaw taala has come to a book and a light. Now this word Kitab on one
comment Allah and Nora lucky dabble morphine, and light and Kitab on morphine, that these these two words Nora and Kitab a movie has like five different like so so Nora has five different possibilities that I've seen books have mentioned. And Kitab has three different possibility that's five times 315 different ways you can understand that if you understand Arabic, all according to the classical sources of the setup for soldering. I'll give you an example. primary primary example. But Khadija ACOEM indeed comes from came to you from Allah subhanaw taala neuron alight Wakita boom
movie and a clear book. So Nora is the light that is found in the book that is one meaning. The second meaning is a Colombian, Allah He neuron, Islam work eatable morphine and the Kitab that is part of Islam because it's a criminal law he No don't work eatable morphine ie the guidance and the book that you need for this guidance. Document, Allah He neurone Prophet sallallahu Sallam is the light, what is our moving.
And those are all four. And I've only touched on like four that I remember off top, my head, all of these meanings, we are losing them when we don't go back in Arabic.
And only translation you can cover so much, right? And so therefore imagine you doing that we're in like the first variant and the second variant and the third variant and the fourth variant and the fifth variant. And now you have all of these verses and you're seeing this, this entire thing was completely lost. Right?
In sha Allah, hopefully Allah will give us Sophia to teach all of this to all of you guys one day, this is not rocket science, anybody can learn this in less than a year, year, year and a half, they dedicate anywhere between five to seven hours a week, you can be at this level where you will be able to actually understand all of these things right? There are keys and stuff like that inshallah.
You know, like it was still safe to be able to you know, preserve and serve this. Now if I'd have told you either accetti him for home law you mean on. So Allah subhanaw taala says over here LA. Oh Lu Isla, actually him that Allah is a you know,
word has become certain helpful out over here to LA. Oh, there are two meanings, right like in the Tafseer books if you're going to find there are two meanings number one lapad helical goal that the adverb of Allah subhanaw taala has been confirmed on them. The second meaning like bone that said about ODU Home Depot for him that Allah has already decreed because of their Amel, that they are going to remain as kuffaar They're not going to change.
What what what kind of Allah became true, the goal of Allah that you you know, you disobeyed Allah and you chose misguidance, Allah said, remain a Kaffir. That is helpful. The second is the adverb of Allah, Allah is like you will be destroyed the decree of Allah, that you shall be destroyed, and that is also have come out. So both of these meanings, most of the translators, the decree of torment, that is just one meaning, but the decree of their disbelief. So if you read the translation, that the decree of their disbelief has already been justified against them,
that changes the meaning completely of the eye.
Okay, Is that making sense to you guys? Like I just wanted you to appreciate the level of this this depth that Quran has. And again, if you're noticing every week, I am trying in every class, I'm trying to bring an element of the board that sometimes is lost. Yeah, I can explain these points like so first meaning is that the decree of the torment had Tolu Allah actually him the decree of the torment of Allah subhanaw taala, this meaning of how old the word of Allah has proved true, meaning what? Meaning that the Decree of Punishment becomes evident, and it is it is being justified against them. That's number one. The second meaning is the decree of the fact that they will remain
as disbelievers has become, which is also a punishment. By the way, if Allah decrees on someone, that you're going to remain as a kafir Subhan Allah may Allah protect us, right? I mean, that's a big like, there's no bigger punishment than that. Right? How Coco either accepting Him majority of them. Now the word either accepting Him means the specifically the people of Makkah, for whom lie you know, they're not going to believe now we get to the verses for today. Anybody wants to come up?
I really like to get our next reciter in sha Allah to contemplator Oh, contemplator sorry. Yeah, we've already reciters hands down and contemplate his hands up.
Perfect. Lea, I see your hand. All right. Yeah, come on up.
I think we lost her as well. Anybody else ready in Charlotte to contemplate on the next verse? Verse number seven insha Allah. Okay, so Allah Subhana Allah somebody I got some hands, okay, they might come on up.
Okay, there's no money can again, sit down. So, Birth Number Seven says it is as if we have put shackles around their necks up to their chins, so their heads are forced up. So I think this is basically means, you know, their necks have shackles on them, which means that they will never go down to sujood I think they will never bow down to Allah. And their heads are being forced up in that way so that they will never, I guess obey Allah
Bow Bow Bow down to him about a calligraphy cutter Hello Alec photo Hello Ali mashallah that is that is a powerful reflection so over here the imagery is that in agile enough IANA to him.
Allah said we have we have placed on their necks of Aladdin, right iron colors. Now it's translated as our own colors, but let me
explain this of Allah.
Allah is never used for something to color your neck.
It's used to shackle your hands. Okay? So the imagery that Allah subhanaw taala is saying, Raja inna Jana Nafi anarchy him overland, that these shackles there are so tight, they're so tight over here, elderly identify here, Ill adequan So their hands are technically because of the shackles are being forced like this. Have a lot of Ill have gone as blind or the open is this area, your chin, ll as a Pawnee, for whom mahkamah on Mahone. Palma is a person who out of arrogance does not want to vote on his head. So the imagery that Allah is saying, technically, the shackles are in their neck, but technically their hands are tied, and they're in this position. And then ask them to be humble to
Allah to prostrate, they're not going to be able to and that's the imagery that Allah wants you to have. And from there, Allah is also referring to a subtle imagery which the sister mentioned beautifully, which is one of the powerful reflections of that. Have you ever seen an arrogant person, they refuse to bow down to Allah subhanaw taala they refuse to bow down to the kalam of Allah subhana wa Tada. And as if they aren't like this when they hear the kalam of Allah subhanaw taala it's that that imagery that Allah is showing for us all of this, why because of the IR before what is the what is the appropriate ness of the IR before if you look at it a calico either
accellion for home law you mean that Allah's decree has become evident. His Word is true. Most of these people are not going to believe.
Then Allah says watch I did not mean begging the ad him said then women huddled up him said Allah says and next person can come up somebody else if we have people this is not for recitation for contemplation.
Saw Allah elephant elephant come on up. Yep.
Come on up elephant.
Marley from Sudan, why the elephant first?
What Wait, why do you like do you like elephants? Yeah. Awesome. That's good. That's good. I've actually, I was in Sierra Blanca, and we went to this elephant reserve and we, you know went in and we, you know, we went in this place this pond where the elephants are and and you know, we were having so much time and then you know, this elephant decided to just grab one of our just so just like with the trunk. One of our kids just like that for fun. It was just so scary. One of my kids, we can take it like that. But yeah, we were there. I think I forgot the year. Somebody's from Sri Lanka. They messaged me. But yeah, there was this. I forgot this place called it was an elephant
reserve. And it was so much fun. You know, elephants are just such they look so nice and cute. But Allah has given them so much power is so scary to do, of course to them. Anyhow, go ahead, elephant. I don't What is your name? I don't want to call you elephant.
Ah, Ava, was Ava, Allah Khalifa tell us.
Allah says it is as if we have put shackles around the neck. So Allah is saying that is putting
next time. Oh, the next. Yeah. Allah says and have placed a barrier before then and a barrier behind them uncovered. All so they fail to see the truth. So a lot is telling us
the people who don't believe in Him is gonna put them in a barrier. And
is it an actual barrier? Or is it a
Actually, so is it a physical barrier that Allah subhanaw taala is going to put them in do you see them walking around the barriers or is it going to be a spiritual barrier, a barrier in the heart what type of barrier This is what do you think?
It's a spiritual very beautiful. So it is a spiritual barrier for designer wants to come up want to bring furs on up?
Salam aleikum. I was like I wanted to add that it is a sort of spiritual disability, you're unable to see the truth, the nor the hedaya. And you're unable to act upon that. And then there are various things you are like it's because of your sins that you are deprived of doing the hair the good. And this is only because you do not act upon what Allah subhanho wa Taala has ordered us to do. And it's always the don'ts that we go for. For just we displeased a long time and again, so Allah puts a barrier on our heart on our brain or an eyes in the eyes, the the sight, the ears and the heart. They are amazing. They are amazing cover. When you do not see the reality and you you're just like
you are in the landing page and a lot of philosophy vertical Luffy. We have Leila was there. I don't know where
Leila was there.
Leila, go ahead. I think that
barrier like on the day of judgment that you can't see a walk so have more data. Beautiful, that's I wanted somebody to mention that so what y'all know me by any ID him said then. Have you guys any, any any of you, you know Marcela, all of you guys are super prized. And if you watch any movies, I know that mashallah all of you are so amazing. But I do watch movies, okay, so just just giving, just giving a disclaimer for people, right? And movies that have a purpose, there was a movie that came out, which was called lion. Anybody saw that movie, it was about this Indian person who was lost, who was an orphan who got lost on a train. And it is a beautiful, it's a true story of this,
this child who was taken by these Australian white people, and brought to Australia as an orphan, and he kept having visions of his actual mother, biological mother and all of that. And then he went and Google through Google Maps, he, he, he, he basically charted out every single possibility that he could belong in, because he does not know any, he forgot all the language, everything. The only thing he remembers, is those visions that he gets the train tracks and they track down all of the maps of the
train tracks, and then he traced it, and finally found the village and in the ending, you literally like, you know, I was bawling. I was crying. Like, I was like, honestly, it was just, it was just such an emotional movie, and it was well done.
But the movie has a very important message, and I'll end with this, that this child, he, in this person, actual person, Muslim guy, he missed his mom, so much the biological one, that no matter how no matter how much luxury he was in, in Australia with his adopted parents,
he could not enjoy life, because his burning question was, where is my mom? And who is my mom? And can you imagine a bigger deprivation for a human being, that on the day of judgment, He will know that our harlot, Allah, the Creator is there
and they're going to be deprived of being able to see him
and not only that, your Creator does not want to see you. But he is destiny in you to eternity of hellfire.
Right and that is what is mentioned here are alarming by any ID himself than woman selfie himself, then they will have barriers in front and back. So I will show you now home Allah is like we covered them. Allahu Akbar. It's for Allah che not not for all shoe that they you know, they got misguided. But oh che now home their Creator has covered their eyes. And on the Day of Judgment, the creator will cover them and put a barrier between them.
And Allah does not want to see them for home law you will see your own they are not able to see in this life and they're not going to see anyone on the Day of Judgment especially their own creator. And keep in mind Allah subhanaw taala says
What's this is somebody might remember this
Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad it's a really powerful eye it talks about
that you will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment when actual home Yeoman the natural warmth your mill piano the armor
if anybody can look that up when national home Yeoman cannot you want to read that? I go ahead.
