Tonight Armani Rahim hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen are behind a sterling and Sullivan who Salim Allah caught him in the V in the Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira and Eli will be Dean and my bad.

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

We begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:00:21--> 00:00:35

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, salam ala alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh we Allah's peace may His blessings may he safety be upon you all to come, but Allah Minda Amin come Salah Amal May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our deeds.

00:00:38--> 00:01:28

with Allah subhanho wa Taala for yet another night in our blessed month, and the worship Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed upon us to complete during this night, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept it in full. And we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bless us in the days and nights that remain in our blessed month. Alhamdulillah this much left to go but Subhanallah we cannot turn a blind eye in terms of how much Subhan Allah has already passed so quickly. Before we know it, we will be experiencing the seventh night before we know it Subhan Allah, especially with the work week that we experience living as Muslim minorities, especially in the West Subhanallah once the week begins,

00:01:28--> 00:01:42

it's literally weekend to weekend. But we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for baraka and this is a good segue because in sha Allah, today we will speak about Baraka, My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam.

00:01:44--> 00:02:12

I guess Welcome to another episode in our series Surah Yusuf in the 21st century yesterday, we spoke about murky sewers or makan, sorrows and Madani Surahs or Medina sorrows and the differences between them. And the fact that Surah Yusuf is a Moroccan surah and we also discuss the lessons that we can extract from

00:02:14--> 00:02:42

from these sutras and these categor these categorizations in the 21st century, who can share with us at these two, two lessons mashallah, you will look like you're paying mashallah attention yesterday, so you can share with us two benefits from the Macan versus Madani chapter or Surah discussion that we can implement immediately in our lives today as Muslims living in the 21st century.

00:02:44--> 00:02:59

Like striking the medina rules and that's true, that's true, that's in terms of the difference, but in terms of the benefit, what benefit did we derive from this knowledge that assists us in our daily interactions today?

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

During the

00:03:04--> 00:03:05


00:03:07--> 00:03:09

okay. Okay.

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

And what does that mean?

00:03:15--> 00:03:29

In terms of Surah Yusuf in terms of it being a makansutra in terms of the characteristics of McCann Surahs in terms of the lessons we dis deduced from it and us living today, I shared with you a few. I'm just looking for two what is the two main ones?

00:03:31--> 00:03:44

Building the strength of prioritization, very good. So prioritization, when we engage the wider Ummah, about matters of Islam, and also prioritization when we engage the Ummah

00:03:46--> 00:04:34

as interdependent Muslims, right, when we address each other people's religiosity, people's faith levels, at different levels, and when we try and build people up as we are an amount of data, we should be sure to focus on the most important things and then from there, build our, our our with others, we shouldn't put everything on them and burn people out but rather, we should burn people in just like the Quran. Grew people's email and develop them to a level whereby when the Quran then said this is halal, and this is haram, people were ready to to accept the so prioritization is one standout lesson from the whole McCain versus Madani discussion. And I guess you've also shed the

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

second point, which is

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

appropriating our style on brother Munir highlighted this appropriating our style when we talk to people speaking to them upon a level that is comprehensible, that allows them to comprehend what we saying allows them to appreciate what we're saying. We don't speak in a way that offends somebody. We don't speak in a way that makes somebody feel that they're being scolded for it.

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Uncle and even to the closest people around us, our children, our families, they also are part and parcel of our data, our portfolio. And we share that example right that you can't speak to a 14 year old as you'd speak to a seven year old, or a 21 year old as you speak to a 14 year old and being busy and being tired, shouldn't be an excuse cannot be an excuse. So Subhanallah in some abstract theoretical discussion about the Quran, we deduced pertinent lessons for us today. Now, one of the questions and this is a common question with this discussion, because when I shared with you this whole idea of the McCain revelation and the characteristics of the McCain revelation and the Medina

00:05:43--> 00:06:14

and Revelation and the characteristics of the Medina and revelation, I said to you, this is a these are general principles, they are exemptions from them. So the use of one question was, are there any other exceptions? And the answer is yes, we are sorted to Anam Surah Al and Iran was revealed Believe it or not, many people may or may not deduce this from reading the surah and looking at the the the length of the verses for example. So Rotterdam is a Merkin. So right it was revealed before his era before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrated to

00:06:15--> 00:07:01

to Medina. And some scholars have said it's McCann aside of a handful of verses as Imam was up and others mentioned, but in general, the MK This is a Moroccan surah. And the scholars of the Sierra highlight that this surah in its entirety, came down in one chunk, Subhan Allah and countless angels Subhanallah brought the surah down, because such is the weight of the ayat and the words of Allah subhanho wa taala. When you read surah, two letter M, you see that the verses are longer. So this goes against the general principle that we shared, however, if you look at the content of Surah Toulon, and you see that the content of Surah matches what we discussed yesterday in terms of the

00:07:01--> 00:07:45

principles of the Moroccan revelation that they focus on Tawheed in Allah subhanho wa Taala they focus on establishing the messenger as the messenger sent by Allah subhanho wa taala. And they focus on what else believe in the hereafter you see Surah two letter and food with, with with lessons and evidences and strong a strong discourse with the coloration the disbelievers about these realities and also, morality good character, we find Allah subhanho wa Taala releasing we said Halal and Haram is a main kind of feature of the medina revelation. But that's a general principle as well we do have some halal and haram revealed in the makin revelation and we see this in sort of, pertaining to

00:07:45--> 00:08:21

the animals, the domesticated animals. Why because the coloration associated these animals will shake and slaughtering them for the idols and having particular views about them about what is permissible to consume and what isn't permissible, permissible to consume. So this is all connected to idolatry and Sheikh so Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals the see and again, this is from the eloquence of the Quran, the beauty of the Quran, they adjust the miraculous nature of the Quran that it has these general principles and even when there's exceptions Subhanallah there are exceptions that complement the general principle it doesn't come across as follows law, it doesn't come across

00:08:21--> 00:09:05

as confusing as you know as unprepared you can see the Quran is measured, the Quran is scheduled Subhanallah and this is from the miraculous nature of the Quran. All these realities are part and parcel of the challenge that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave to mankind that if you believe that this Quran isn't from Allah then produce something like it, or produce a surah like it or produce a Anya, like it. And this challenge hasn't been met by mankind today. Because you know, even a verse in light of the whole Quran has characteristics, as realities has functions has benefits as wisdoms Subhanallah which makes the challenge so hard to meet and indeed it is from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:09:05--> 00:09:52

by today. For today's session, we move on to the next step. Whenever we read a surah in the Surah of the Quran, we begin that Surah with the best manner. The biosimilar is an Arabic term, and it is the title of Bismillah AR Rahman Rahim and many people don't know this, but such as the Arabic language. The Arabic language can give a name to a phrase give a name to a phrase, for example. Hola Hola. Quwata illa Allah. What is this called in Arabic? It's called the how color, how color higher and higher AlFalah schools behave when you read the books of Feck and they discussed the event. They mentioned the Haryana what is the higher and higher and a slider here and a little fella. This is

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

from the beauty and depth of the Arabic language. So Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem is known as the batsman.

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

With regards to Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem some theory first and foremost let's get the theory theory out of the way then we can go into the practicalities what does this mean for us as Muslims today?

00:10:11--> 00:10:17

When this when this call is discussed this we can take the questions that after inshallah you have some quests you have some questions

00:10:19--> 00:10:25

let let's take the questions that after so that we don't break the chain of instruction when the squad is talking about

00:10:26--> 00:10:29

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim in the Quran.

00:10:30--> 00:10:46

One of the discussions they have is Is it a verse from the verses of the Quran? Is it a verse from the verses of the Quran. And there's several views about this for the purposes of our setting, the closest view when looking at the collective evidences together

00:10:48--> 00:11:31

entails that Bismillah is a verse from the verses of the Quran. However, it is an independent verse independent of the surah that comes thereafter. It is a verse from the verses of the Quran. However, it is independent of the verses that come thereafter. So if you ever count how many verses in a surah you will notice the account the verses of the Surah, excluding Bismillahirrahmanirrahim. But this doesn't mean that Bismillah AR Rahman Rahim isn't a verse from the verses of the Quran and this is a pertinent discussion, because we know when we read the Quran, for every letter that we read, Allah gives us a Hazara. And they Hassan is equal to 10 rewards, which means when you read Bismillah

00:11:31--> 00:12:20

R Rahman Rahim, you are getting a Hasina 10 rewards for every letter in Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. So this is the theoretical discussion pertaining to a Bismillah and the sutras thereafter. And it's a connected discussion because we are in a Quran related discussion. But what are the what is the function of Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, the function of the batsman or what is the function of the customer? And when we look at the collective evidences in Islam, we see there's a lot of assuredly there's a lot of Islam. There's a a normative reality and Islamic normative reality when it comes to the best manner and that is it is a means of seeking blessings from Allah subhanho wa taala. When we

00:12:20--> 00:13:03

say Bismillah and begin something in the Name of Allah, we are seeking blessings from from Allah subhanho wa Taala right so before we eat, the Sunnah teaches us to say Bismillah and before we do anything, the Sunnah teaches us to say Bismillah anything, which is obviously of course halal and productive, we say Bismillah this bar here in Bismillah is known as Bell is the Anna, the bear of seeking assistance. So you seeking assistance from Allah, meaning you seeking blessings from Allah in that which you are going to do. So as you recite the surah you say Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, you're asking Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless your recitation, to bless the rewards of your

00:13:03--> 00:13:42

recitation, to bless your concentration when you read the surah. And when you read the Quran, this is the function of Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem when you eat, you are asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for his blessings in your food, that it is halal. Number one that your earnings are halal to purchase this food number number two or number three, that you you become big fool with a few or more cells because the muscles that you eat are blessed. When you eat a meal that is blessed. You become fuller with fewer muscles, and Subhanallah once a person came to the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa sallam and by the way, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us this as an etiquette

00:13:42--> 00:14:24

from the etiquettes of eating to say, Bismillah but also once a person came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and said, I eat and I eat but I don't become full Subhan Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, perhaps you eat or don't eat in a gym or in a group, and he acknowledged that he eats alone and from this the scholars deduce that from the means of Baraka when we eat is to eat as a gathering, to eat together with company and as such will become fuller quicker, because that meal in its totality is blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala and Baraka is this secret reality Subhanallah between Allah subhanho wa Taala and his slave, it's not secret in terms

00:14:24--> 00:14:59

of us feeling it but it's its secret in terms of of explaining it, it's a gift it's it's a hidden, divine gift that Allah subhanahu atta Allah blesses whom He wills with Subhanallah sometimes we go through days and we feel there's so much abundance in time. There's so many blessings in time Subhanallah we plan to do 10 things and Masha Allah Tabata kala by salata rasa, we've completed authentics Allahu Akbar, but some days we plan to do 10 things and muharram comes and we've only done five things. Now, how would our Lakota 11 know what happened? Right? So this Baraka is a secret every day

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

Is 24 hours every day is 24 hours but some days Subhanallah we have a highly impactful day. We feel the baraka in time sometimes Subhanallah we go to the shop and we buy so much and we feel our heart filled Subhanallah is this oil it came to Allahu Akbar. Right but sometimes we go to the shop and we see the bullet we say I bought so little, and it's costing so much Subhanallah This is from those quote unquote secrets between Allah subhanho wa Taala and his slave. So Bismillah is a means of seeking blessings and we are in need of seeking Allah subhanahu Attallah as blessings, especially in a time where Baraka feels like it's been lifted, and we live in through a minus sign from the signs

00:15:42--> 00:16:25

of TMI. And we know this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said from the minus signs of pm is this idea of Yetta power, Ragusa man, the coming together of time, I mean, what is coming together of time need this to 24 hours in a day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had 24 hours in his day. It wasn't 2030 3536 42 hours when he was alive, it was 24 hours, it's 24 hours as well in our lifetime, right? But Subhanallah this prophecy where he told us from the signs of pain, the minus signs of piano is the coming together of time What did he mean? The Scholars say he meant that Baraka will be lifted off time Subhanallah that you you live 24 hours but it will feel like less

00:16:25--> 00:16:47

sometimes 18 hours sometimes 14 hours sometimes 12 hours. I mean I think all of us when Ramadan came this year, we felt La ilaha illa we remember it from last year it feels like just three months ago Subhanallah we remember what we were doing we remember the whole discussion is eat on this day or is it not on this day? Are we doing local sightseeing? Why are we doing all those you know, phenomenal discussions that happen?

00:16:48--> 00:17:27

Every year La Ilaha illa Allah it feels nothing events ago no brothers no three months ago Subhanallah it's one year 12 Luna months have expired we already in Ramadan and like I said before we know it seven days we'll be completing the seventh night today we finished the fifth the Jews the seven Jews is around the corner before you know it the first 10 of Ramadan up and what happens when the first 10 is up? You have your eye on the last 10 And when you have your eye on the last 1011 12 1314 1516 Subhanallah it just disappears I mean for me I'm pondering over previous Ramadan said how did it go so quick? To Han Allah Mela? What's happening? Why is it going so quick and as I

00:17:27--> 00:18:05

wander I think Subhanallah the second and 10 days was was went so quick because you're focusing on everything you need to do to free up yourself for the last 10 days, then the last 10 days come and you're looking at the odd nights and surana Merton Covey these nights come and go come and go you searching for a little harder before you know it is 27 Before you know it, you looking forward to read and sadaqa tool fitzer And you know for family needs to do some shopping, there's some eat preps and Ramadan comes to an end and the day of Eid comes And subhanAllah it comes and goes quicker than ever Subhanallah before you know it is measured in time and read is over. And some people what

00:18:05--> 00:18:38

do they do they have a need for one week, because they still have to fit in visiting that family member and that invite and so on and so forth. So they say this is a day to read the day three, you know, it's not really read day two and day three, but Subhanallah This is how life has become when we hear the stories of our grandparents on on the day how they would meet everybody Subhanallah it was read with three days in one day, that they would pray the Salah and they would meet the community and they would give the sadaqa to fitzer beforehand and they wouldn't wouldn't give it in a rush. It will be done with hair and baraka and blessings and intention and feeling Subhanallah

00:18:39--> 00:19:20

such as the time that we live in. Yet ACARA was a man. So we take from this lesson of the vessel Mela, how we need to take the means of seeking baraka and we spoken about Bismillah R Rahman Rahim and how it is a means of seeking Baraka we spoken about eating together and how it is a means of baraka and Bismillah. When we enter the home is a means of Baraka when we eat, it's a means of baraka and also maintaining family relations. And this is a good segue to mention this because we spoke about the day and meeting the family. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam highlights to us in a generation that scholars of Hadith many have considered it to be an acceptable NARRATION The

00:19:20--> 00:19:24

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that

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


00:19:28--> 00:19:33

wishes for the lives to have baraka and they

00:19:37--> 00:19:42

know and they will have got to come and have a human Salah who fear is key.

00:19:45--> 00:19:46

Men have bei

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

Yun Salah houfy edgeley, now, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said men have Ubisoft by law who fear is key or you can say Allah houfy agilely valioso Rahima

00:20:00--> 00:20:15

panela that mean Allah subhanho wa Taala we forget sometimes. And then Allah reminds us that hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, whoever, whoever wishes for Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless his earnings is risk and to bless his life

00:20:16--> 00:20:56

What should he do? You should maintain family relations, he should maintain the bonds of kinship should look after the senator regime Subhanallah that this is a means of having Baraka in your wealth and having broken your health and having broken your life may Allah subhanahu Attallah grant us the understanding, the last point I want to discuss with you all for this evening and inshallah we will extract a benefit and it is from Surah Yusuf as well is the opening of Surah Yusuf because Allah subhanho wa Taala opens Surah Yusuf with a leaf lamb aura, and these are letters from the Arabic language, but Allah subhana who reveals them in this disjointed manner. And the scholars of

00:20:56--> 00:21:41

the Sierra have a long discussion about these disjointed letters in the Quran. Do they have a meaning? Don't they have a meaning, what is their function and so on and so forth. And that is a discussion for another presentation. But nonetheless, there is always wisdom in the Quran and how the Quran has been revealed. And one of the benefits that have been deduced from the scholars of Tafseer in this discussion of the disjointed letters in the Quran, and we have many Alif Lam Meem we have yet seen we have poha one of the deductions from the Subhan Allah is that whenever Allah subhanho wa Taala begins a surah. In this manner with these disjointed letters you always find in

00:21:41--> 00:22:25

the verse thereafter as a general principle, as a general principle. Let's be true to the words of the scholars as a general principle. You find in the verse thereafter, a verse about the Quran Subhan Allah, and if Lam Meem then he can Kitab yes even while Quran ha ha man Zelner la cultura analytische literature. Elif la Mora. Allah subhanho wa Taala begin Surah Yusuf with Le falam RA and immediately Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the verses of the Quran and Hakeem this differentiate between the truth and falsehood. So, this is the first deduction. Now, or this is the deduction I wish to share this many deductions and deductions that we find from the scholars of the

00:22:25--> 00:22:53

seal pertaining to this, as I said, it's part of a longer discussion. But what is true and this is through observation is when we find the surah beginning in this way, as a general rule, we see Allah subhanahu Iryna, mentioning the Quran, mentioning the Quran. And one of the benefits from this and again, this is in surah, Yusuf Surah Yusuf begins in this way, and we are in the month of Quran is for us to recognize that indeed this Quran, who will

00:22:56--> 00:23:01

who will hack as Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed who will help Musa Khan Lima, Albania.

00:23:02--> 00:23:26

Right? This Quran is the truth. This Quran is the absolute truth. And this Quran also conforms to the truth that Allah revealed to previous prophets. The truth that Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed that Allah subhanho wa Taala is one and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only only one worthy of worship and the life of the hereafter and so on and so forth.

00:23:29--> 00:23:43

So this Quran is the Huck and it is the truth. And Allah subhana wa Tada is highlighting these letters as letters that are part of the Arabic language and the Quran is revealed in the Arabic language beliefs and in our OBE movie

00:23:44--> 00:24:21

SubhanAllah. This Quran is revealed in Arabic language, remember, it was revealed in the Arabic language but it's a universal book. But appropriately it was revealed in in the Arabic language given the reality of the Arabic language, the depth of the Arabic language, the blessedness of the Arabic language, its propensity to stand the test of time that the Arabic language will be a container to hold the laws of Allah in the container has to be solid. It cannot be a language that will die as previous languages came and died Latin as a common example. The Arabic language is high, it's alive, it's preserved, the original Arabic is preserved today Subhanallah that irrespective of

00:24:21--> 00:24:59

the many dialects and the different variations and quote unquote the slang, the common mannerism of speaking the Arabic language that we find amongst the common Arabs, Subhan Allah, the original Arabic is preserved. Allah chose this language and also the people that received this Quran they spoke the Arabic language the Quran was revealed in the middle of the desert, between two civilizations to a people that the civilizations didn't care about. These Bedouin Arabs in the middle of the desert. They knew this was the language. They knew these letters were the letters right, and the Quran is being revealed.

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

it in truth is being revealed. With no inferiority complex this hacker is being revealed was no inferior inferiority complex as if there's a challenge here that here are your letters, the letters of your alphabet, the letters of your language. And thereafter Allah highlights this Quran Subhan Allah, that this Quran is the Huck and it is the truth, and there's no doubt in it in Surah Baqarah Danny Kalki tablao you Buffy. This is the book in which there is no doubt Subhanallah there's no inferiority complex Allah reveals it and says there's no doubt if you have a doubt the problem is with you is not with the truth that Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed. And we see this in Surah

00:25:45--> 00:26:21

Yusuf as well. Right and remember yesterday we spoke about when Surah Yusuf was revealed at a very difficult time. We spoke about this yesterday, right guys, we spoke about the time of revelation at a very difficult time, and the Quraysh are trying to they're trying to remove the fuel of Islam, that the delights of Islam lead to lower Allah, they're trying to extinguish the light of Islam. Allah subhanho wa Taala is revealing the Quran in truth and the suitors that come in truth and he has heard our use of review to the Sahaba to ease their pain because of all the difficulties they were going through. And what difficulty the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went through with

00:26:21--> 00:26:58

the use of sorrow, when Surah Yusuf was revealed Subhan Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala emphasizes to them that this Quran is the Huck this Quran is the hack and these atoms will challenge it. The weaknesses with them. The inferior inferiority is with them. The complexes with them is not what this book this book is Lowry, but he there is no doubt in it. It's not like the other books that you read the other books written by men, the other books written by women. These books have doubts. These books have doubts somebody gives you their opinion, that opinion is open to being acceptable or unacceptable. But this Quran, Larry, Buffy will then deal with Turkey. It is a guide for the

00:26:58--> 00:27:16

people of Taqwa and in Surah Baqarah. In the verses of fasting, Allah says, who then leanness this book is a guide for mankind at large. So this Quran is a helpful movie, it is the truth, it is the clear truth. It is a guide for the believers and it is a guide for mankind and Surah Yusuf opens

00:27:18--> 00:27:55

with these disjointed letters reminding us to the truthful nature of the Quran, the reality of the Quran that it is indeed the hack that it is not a book with an inferiority complex that it is does not succumb itself to people's whims to people's fantasies to people's cultures, to people's forefathers and the ways because that's what the question was about. They were being argumentative. They were talking about their family history they were they were belittling the messenger delay the propaganda campaign on the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Why would you lay a propaganda campaign on the personality of a person? Why would you try and character assassinate a person the

00:27:55--> 00:28:32

only time you character assassinate a person is when you want people to stop listening to his message. That's what that's what you do that by character assassinating a person. People will say this person is a mad person what they say doesn't need our airtime. They tried it with new honey he salah they tried it with the other and be it he was salat wa salam. Allah reminds us from Surah Baqarah and throughout the Quran and then in in different ways in this way through the disjointed letters as well that oh believer or servant of Allah or child of Adam, hold steadfast your Eman. Don't let the pressures of society cause you to fall into doubt. Don't let the the way of the people

00:28:32--> 00:29:12

who want to spread fascia and conquer they want to spread immorality and that which Allah dislikes Don't let these trends cause you to feel Subhanallah inferior cause you to feel weaker cause you to feel that you know what I have to succumb I have to change my ways that they keep changing the goalposts they keep moving it to the left and I was in the middle but every time they move it to the left now I'm seem to be extreme on the right. So I need to move myself I need to reposition myself I need to replace myself. The Quran is saying this is not who you are. A person of Imam or servant of Allah, Oh reader of the Quran, follow the truth and be with the truth and support the truth and be
