our online Umina shaytani R rajim Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim will either send me a loved one and we'll work on

00:00:33--> 00:01:16

our man Luna welcome, Luke on Salam on Marilyn come learn about w j healing Sadhak Allahu Allah Aleem. So we're still discussing the amazing qualities and attributes of these people of the book. We spoke about the fact that how they embrace both their scriptures, and for them is a dual reward. They were completing their Aqeedah and they believe likewise, they were outstanding and sublime in their character. You're the owner Bill has sanity say, if somebody was nasty to them, they would not stoop so low, they would not reciprocate in a like manner they would rise above they would give a good response, a polite response, when we madrasa now whom UniFi code and they spend from that which

00:01:16--> 00:01:50

Allah has given them. And we spoke about the latter portion of the ayah speak that they will free from hookbait jaw and for bimmel Marthy Bonnie Jha Irani or Salafi run Amin be offset Aloha, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to hungry wolves reflect over the words to hungry wolves, right that are released in a flock of sheep. They will not cause so much harm to that sheep as much as the grave of wealth and the grave of fame will cause to the Imam of a person.

00:01:51--> 00:02:30

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam did not say to wolves, he said to hungry wolves. And then he did not say wealth and fame. He said the crave of wealth and fame and all this I read in the writings of Hakimullah OMA Rahim Allah, so wealth if it comes and you're not craving for it, and fame if it comes from the Almighty and you are not desperate for it, then this is the bounty from Allah in the Latina Amanullah Amina sorry Heidi, so yeah, I don't know whom Rama and who woulda those who obey Allah and do righteous deeds Allah will instill the love in the hearts of people. Allah spoke about Zulu Carmen in nama Cana Allah who fill are they where are they now whom in coalition in Sabah that

00:02:30--> 00:03:18

we had blessed him he travels the earth and we had given him and we had given him power we had given him resources, feed Allah Allah tuna Allah Anna Hassan Al mal Hotel Casa in WA Sula Jah solve. NFL Come on, doesn't mention in Messiah salute that the equity to own wealth right up to the treasures and to have prominence right up to leadership is not against the station of Naboo as long as you're not seeking it in Nala in Allah Nesta amela Allah Amelie Melina mon Radha in gnarliness Tamila Allah I'm Elena mon Harada. We will not delegate a boast to anyone who seek in the post. So if Allah is giving you the prominence and you're not seeking the prominence then this is a Nana from Allah. So

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

while Yatra ownable has an artist say they resist evil in a good manner means they are free from her bad job. They are not there to preserve the ego and to protect their self esteem. And you know, of course, we're not saying that you must humiliate yourself preservation of dignity is important. But often today, because a person's ego has been trampled, or he's been told something and he is wrong about it, he is wrong about it, but he finds it too difficult to accept the truth. Why is our Tila Tequila 102 Larissa two A and nacwa often has been charade who was this disbelief I'm gonna fit whenever he was told something fear Allah, he would feel offended, he would feel violated.

00:04:02--> 00:04:44

Furthermore, in verse 55, Allah subhanaw taala speaks about yet a another salient quality of these people of the book. So as I mentioned, according to the narration of Mohammed bin is hot. It was the delegation that had come from Africa from us Hama, and they came they met with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you know, he said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam received them very well. In fact, in one book in bubble Mocha, I read the Prophet sallallahu wasallam stood up to personally receive them. So the Sahaba said, Lo Tarak Tana Cafe now KR rasool Allah, Allah be of Allah set down we will attend to these guests, and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the home gern only as

00:04:44--> 00:05:00

hobby mockery mean in the home Gan only as hobby mockery mean they honored my companions when my Sahaba took shelter that we know the first migration had taken place to Africa, and then subsequently to Medina. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

acknowledge the fact that Africa had hosted, housed accommodated, received the Sahaba and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood up to acknowledge them. So when they came, and they embrace the truth, and then they also realized that the economic condition of the Sahaba was not too good. So they also generously spent and donated and contributed. So people started making remarks that as believers, I mean, you just come on the first instance you see a man, you just embrace his faith, you just take to his teachings, and you just spend generously like strange of you people. So in verse 55, Allah says, What either semi Allah, Allah, and when they heard futility, and when they

00:05:42--> 00:06:28

heard vain talk when they heard nonsense, when they had people say nasty things, or adore and who they moved aside, they continued, they ignored what Carlu and they said Lana, Amma Luna, welcome Arma LUCAM. We will be responsible for our actions and you will be liable for your actions. You will not be held accountable for what we do and we will not be held accountable for what you do. Lana Maradona, welcome LUCAM Salam aleikum, we greet you. Of course this is not the greeting of peace that says salam ala Mata raka Imam Abu Bakr just sauce has made Surat on this year is mentioned this year categorically in his Afghan will Quran. salam ala Mutharika means we parted ways. Listen, I

00:06:28--> 00:07:11

don't want to get in your space. Don't come in my space. Don't get under my skin. You know what me and you don't have a dialogue in place. We don't have a dialogue in place. When Satana Ibrahim alayhis salam conveyed the message to his father ASAN and his father was hostile and was an adversity and was uncouth then he said salaam guna Lake Oh my dad, I greet you and I'm leaving had our Salah ml Rob O'Neill earlier what the lactiful Abrar mine Johal ilaha illallah wa salam will rob O'Neill earlier. This was a salaam of turning away and moving on what Allah TOEFL Abrar managed Johan, and it's also a reflection of the dignified communication of the noble and the pious with

00:07:11--> 00:07:59

people that are naive, foolish and belligerent. Allah subhanaw taala told the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was better Allah ma Jaco Luna wa Jerome Hedren, Jamila or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam move on in a beautiful way move on in a beautiful way ignore them and move on. So in life you always gonna get people that's gonna hurt things, say nasty things make comments. Are we living up to the demand of the Quran of what Jerome had drawn? Jamila leave them in a beautiful way. One is you move away. And then you heard something you say something nasty, you type out something, you know what you come across in a sarcastic way? No, no. Why do rowhome hydron Jamila respond, I

00:07:59--> 00:08:43

mean, leave them and move in a beautiful way. So we're in a semi or Lavoie when they hear futility or nonsense or somebody say nasty things to them. They say Lana Armando. Now salaam aleikum. We spoke about the academics and Metallica, Metallica is from Johnny bein MUFA Allah meaning, you know, leave me alone, and I'll leave you alone. I really don't want to get into the space. And from this we learn. The scholars have said that when you see a person is adamant on his ignorance and his persistent on his waves, then move on because it's counterproductive it's counterproductive law. Learn number vilja Helene, we do not want to engage with foolish people. We've got nothing to

00:08:43--> 00:09:26

discuss. We've got nothing to discuss. So they were not deterred. Their spirits were not dampened. They were not intimidated by the comments, the remarks, the observations, the slurs of their phones, they enemies, they adversities, they kept focused, they reverted to the dean and they spent generously and they they they embrace the truth. May Allah subhanaw taala bless us with this character bless us with this character. So that kind of concludes the discussion of the People of the Book. And that's the beauty of Islam. Allah subhanho wa Taala praises and acknowledges women al Kitab, a man into a man who will be comparing you at the lake. Some from amongst these people are so

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

honest, so trustworthy, give them an entire treasure and they will return it to you in every penny and every cent in verse 56. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about an incident that was of course very, very emotional to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again, I must say, You know what, admire the rubbed, that has been captured in biannual Quran. So verse 56. Just an overview of what is being discussed here. It is regarding

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


00:10:01--> 00:10:02


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

you know the the disbelief of Abu Talib the fact that Abu Talib did not embrace the deen at Jamal Mufasa rune at Mohawk people, this is what Xeljanz words is this almost consensus of the scholars and the narration of Sahih Muslim also indicates in this direction that this verse was regarding Abu Talib. So what does Allah subhanaw taala say in verse 56, and then I'll tie it up with the rub the correlation between the preceding verses and this verse in Nicola de mon Babita, O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you cannot guide whomsoever you wish. were lacking Allah de mania sharp. But Allah guides whomsoever He wishes. Were who were aren't alone will build the deen and not

00:10:55--> 00:11:11

only that, you cannot guide you are unaware of who is guided and who will be guided that is only in the knowledge of Allah who are Allah and Allah knows best Bill Medina about the guided individual. So this is not in the knowledge of any human to guide.

00:11:12--> 00:11:15

Not so Burano na Sol Purana.

00:11:16--> 00:12:04

The Quran is quite clear that the guidance of any person lays said to be Yedi Nabi is not in the hands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So there are two things in this regard, we have erotic Pareek and we have a sol Sol Mutlu era to trick is to show the path. And in this regard, of course, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam guides were in Nicoletta de la Seraphim was the team, the concluding verses of Surah Surah. And surely you guide to the straight part, meaning you show people the straight path, and then you have a sol il Mata lube to take the individual to the destination. This is not in the control of a newbie, and this is what is referenced here, in Nikola Tesla, demon,

00:12:04--> 00:12:05


00:12:06--> 00:12:07

So we all know

00:12:08--> 00:12:59

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had this fervent desire and this burning passion for the guidance of every soul for the guidance of every soul, and of course, his family all the more, and in particular, his uncle, who was so dear to him, and who stood as a pillar of support for him, and who you know, who would ward off any attack against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they came to Abu Talib and they said, tell your tell your nephew to stop his message and tell your nephew to stop inviting people and a bowtie live game and he said oh my nephew this is what people are saying to me, and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Lo what Baruch Hashem Sufi Yemeni will come

00:12:59--> 00:13:47

and free your salary Atoka ha ha Umbra Mata Rocco. Oh, my beloved honorable August venerable uncle, if they were to put the sun meaning all the difficulties in my path or the moon, or the comforts in my path, and either or, and then asked me to give up, I will not abandon my mission. I will not abandon my mission. And Abu Talib said and I will defend you till the last breath. And he said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam said to his uncle, oh, my uncle read the Kadima and I will defend your cause. And I will intercede for you in Accra. So for a person to qualify for intercession, he has to have his own passport of eemaan passport of eemaan. Once you have the passport of iman, then yes,

00:13:47--> 00:14:34

the intercession of the MBR will assess the intercession of the pious there's so many different levels of Shiva bubble shafa. It appears in the books of Hadith fatale Baris says he's recorded under the saya and yerba caribou Kumbhakarna muda that there are 10 levels of Shiva and intercession that will take place we ask Allah to make us amongst the fortunate people who will qualify for the intercession of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Yarra behind me. So he said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam said to his uncle, read the Kenema read the Kelemen What did his uncle say? Well, aka Alim to be a Nadine and Mohammed Amin hiree idea and you'll bury it D Dena Oh my nephew. I know

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

what certainty that you are a prophet. Right? But as we say, Islam, John Nikana Omnia, Monica Nami, it is not sheer understanding, but it is embracing of the faith. It is accepting a car Bill Nissan, the steer to build Jinan, Amelie Bill Archon the articulation with the tongue, the conviction with the heart and

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

The display with the organs that's the combination of iman. But I'm afraid that people will say I buckled under pressure, I buckled under pressure, low level Malama. If it wasn't for the fear of what people would have said, I would have uttered the words and I would have brought comfort to your eyes.

00:15:22--> 00:16:08

But he did not utter it. And of course Allah knows best. And we cannot possibly imagine the pain of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and how emotional I read in rural money and intercede on Earth for money. The Scholars say that a person should not make the topic of the disbelief of Abu Talib, a topic of discussion, because there is fear that you will be causing pain to the heart of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, you will be causing pain to the heart of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. And we don't want to ever cause any pain. Yes, we do not shy away from the verse nor the commentary of the verse. But we don't make it a point of debate and discussion and

00:16:08--> 00:16:50

deliberation, we limit our discussion to the context of the ayah what was discussed here what was mentioned here, that's it, beyond the scope, fully sound restrain your tongue, I give a simple analogy and I've said it to my students in class, as a student, you are serving your teacher, there is the spiritual transmission taking place. Your teachers son, unfortunately, has succumb to some wrong advice. You come to the teacher and you say to start, you know what your son Unfortunately, I've discovered that he is, you know what? committing this crime doing this wrong. The teacher is aware of it. He says okay, I appreciate the alert. I am conscious, I am aware. Thank you for

00:16:50--> 00:17:33

alerting me after a period of time you come and repeat it again. Now, that is the brutal truth that does student you know, the child of the teacher has defaulted. And he is a delinquent and he has succumb to certain social vices, but by you repeatedly discussing this with the teacher, surely you're going to cause pain to his heart, you're going to cause pain to his heart. And this is the regular teacher. And this is a common teacher that we talk in, in in every setup setup. This is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the greatest human Hyrule basher, nothing you will Ambia so we should not be discussing this topic unnecessarily. But the balance is where the verse appears with

00:17:33--> 00:18:19

the discussion presents. We do discuss it in Nicola de mon habita O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you cannot guide whomsoever you wish. Well I can Allah Hi yah de Mejia Shah, and we learn from this. If taking a person to a destination is not in the control of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then how can one ever imagine that you know what guidance is guaranteed at the hands of this mentor or the scholar or in the discourses of this person? We can say you know what, take him to this gathering. Take him to the scholar, hopefully with the grace of Allah, it will have a profound impact on his heart and Allah will guide him to the truth but that scholar per se or that

00:18:19--> 00:19:05

gathering per se cannot change his life it can surely show him the direction but guidance comes from the Almighty well I can Allah yeah he Immacolata demon, Baba. Well I can Allah Hi yah hoo Dee mania Shah. Well who are Allah mobility Maha dean. And Allah alone knows who will be the guided ones. And Allah alone knows who are the guided ones. So many times in our life, we observe a person and you think guidance would never come to this individual. And subhanAllah there is a 360 degree turn. And Allah has blessed him with Imam and he's reverted to the deen and he's changed his life. The Magician's in the time of Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam. They came to challenge the Nabhi and then

00:19:05--> 00:19:49

Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed him with iman. Fie Vigouroux el perfil Allah He to Allah Fie, Natalie mansha I mean, everybody hear me in a variety gouffre Well, Rena de la Neha util Imani was said Daddy, this is mentioned there in a biannual Quran. It speaks volumes about the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala. Free Natalie mon Shah I mean everybody here min Leia tilicho freewell Arena de ilani hiatal Imani was Sudan from the depth and the abbess of disbelief to the pinnacle of faith and submission that these magicians came in the morning, as disbelievers as opponents to the prophet

00:19:51--> 00:20:00

as as you know what challenging the truth, and in the evening of that same morning, they were believers. They will come

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

companions and they will martyrs. We ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to preserve the Eman that he has given us. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us amongst those fortunate people that we leave this world with iman. Amin, ja LaBelle, Amin.
