Slow hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while early he was Sufi woman, Juana, so I don't want to lie to all of you may Allah Subhana Allah bless you and your loved ones. May Allah subhanaw taala make us from amongst those who benefit from these reminders from these classes from these sessions, from the knowledge that we have access to, and may Allah subhanaw taala forgive us for shortcomings. Allama Amin, I pray that you're all well in good faith in good health. And I ask Allah subhanaw taala to preserve you and continue utilizing all of us for height in this world. Alone. I mean, what we'll do today in sha Allah, we will delve into our next sort of a very interesting one a

00:00:39--> 00:01:24

topic that for many people, if you were attending a lengthy 16 hour weekend seminar, and your body got tired and you started dozing off, this is one of those topics that brings people and jolts them right back to attention and back to reality. So today our discussion in sha Allah Tala will begin with the tifosi it and although we will try our best, we are likely to complete a half disorder today Inshallah, today we will delve into the Tafseer of Surah to religion, again, a topic in which there are some misconceptions. A lot of clarifications are needed, and also an Iman booster is required. For oftentimes this topic is portrayed, especially amongst non Muslims and even sometimes

00:01:24--> 00:01:34

amongst Muslims in a way that does not build the man but rather in a way that frightens people or decreases their faith. So I ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this beneficial for all of us along with me.

00:01:36--> 00:01:42

I'll go ahead and begin by sharing the screen in sha Allah and then we'll introduce the surah to US medical off

00:01:52--> 00:02:31

our topic for tonight is the Tafseer also not religion, a very interesting topic. Once again, a lot of things need to be clarified a lot of interesting stories and context here that we will delve into inshallah Hotaka. I want us to begin with a little bit of background about the surah. And about the topic in general, the name of the surah is taken from the topic itself from beginning to end, it's about the discussion of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala known as Elgin, and there are a lot of details in the Surah about the jinn and a lot of the conversations that took place in terms of the links between Surah two engine and the last Surah we covered in our last session on Prophet

00:02:31--> 00:03:10

Nurhaliza again from beginning to end all about Prophet, no idea his Salaam and the flood. There are a lot of similar themes that are repeated amongst them is that both of these swans sort of neuron sort of origin. They address the topic of polytheism shirk. So in Surah to North you remember we discussed the idols that you used to worship but these were idols named after people previously who were righteous or people that were righteous, but they had changed their images and sculpted idols and then eventually began to worship these idols, and Prophet knew how to use them was bringing them back to the worship of one God. And this is the message of every messenger to mankind worship one

00:03:10--> 00:03:50

God. And in Surah, Turgeon the same thing, there's an emphasis on worshiping Allah with no shift no deities or partners or associates, including your own self or any idols or people and so on and so forth. The second similarity amongst many others, is that the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala of water and rain is mentioned in the Surah that those who are righteous will be given an abundance of water meaning water to drink to live by the water cycle in this world as well. And in terms of sustaining our lives, the fact that we all comprise are comprised of water in every cell. So this is mentioned in Surah Turgeon and also if you recall, mentioned in surah, two has well fulfilled

00:03:50--> 00:04:26

yourself you know what I'm back from India who can have a photo you will see this summer or they can withdraw when you need cumbia, rewarding when you know agenda congenita and when John Lachman Hora in both disorder there's an emphasis seek forgiveness from Allah be upright to be righteous, and Allah Subhana Allah just forgive you will also bless you with the worldly things. May Allah subhanaw taala bless us and forgive us for shortcomings along with me. This Surah Surah telogen is revealed that was revealed in Makkah, some scholars say it could have been in the earlier parts of Prophethood it could have been a few years into the message. Allah subhanaw taala knows best but it

00:04:26--> 00:05:00

seems most likely that it was revealed in Mecca and there are some Hadith indicating some context to the story here to what happened. So in the long hadith of and Buhari Listen to this story, it was reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam set out with the intention of going to a particular soup, this soup known as the market of Rohan or OCAD. This was a place that they had amongst many others that they had gone to and people had participated in and it was displeasing for the profit side and to generally be there, but this was a place in which

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

Before Islam during the days of Hillier people would negotiate often. Why is it displeasing? Because oftentimes in the marketplace as people are fighting over, especially they're fighting over or negotiating harshly over worldly matters, and there's a lot of focus on on dunya, a lot of focus on trivial pursuits rather than on Allah subhanaw taala and the afterlife rather than just taking what you need and moving on. So the Prophet sallahu wa Salam is going to the soup, this marketplace, along with some of the sahaba. And this was reported from, from the Companions as well. And as this was taking place, so this is the context of the Hadith during this time. And again, this is why some

00:05:38--> 00:06:13

scholars say this is in the early prophethood. In terms of Mecca, a barrier was placed, we don't know what kind of barrier of barrier was placed between the devils and the news of the heaven. This is the news of other decree that was coming down. So the way that according to the works based on some of the Hadith that we have in the opinions of companions, is that Condor, ALLAH SubhanA, knowing the future because he is an ally, he does not force you to do things, but he knows what his creation will do, he knows the choices you will make, does not force you to but knows what you will do. This other this knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala is written down in the left hand muffled. So

00:06:13--> 00:06:47

it's recorded, meaning it's written down what you're going to decide to do and what all people will do, until the unknown times, that Lauren law for that product is brought down to manifest in reality. So every day, there's other that manifest and angels are bringing this information down and discussing what's happening next to let's say, so and so. And as they are specific angels are pointed for this, that news is being discussed in the heavens. And this means what above us in a place that is specific, we don't know where, but what we know is that there's an overlap between that place meaning wherever the angels are discussing this and bringing down the Condor to manifest

00:06:47--> 00:07:24

on Earth, and where the devils were going up in the past and listening to this news of the heavens. And now what happened here was once the Prophet sallallahu sallam was given prophethood So once he reached the age of 40, and Prophet to and began, this barrier was placed between the devils and the news that they used to basically take from the heaven and they used to go down and inform the people who worked with them, the fortune tellers and so on is for people of evil and these to share this news with them. So fire commenced to be thrown at these devils and some scholars say this is what's being referred to in the Quran. One last pattern mentions meteorites being thrown at the devil's to

00:07:24--> 00:07:59

prevent them from listening to this news. So the devil's went to their people, their devils and they asked them, What is wrong with you, they would say there's a barrier that that's recently been placed between us and the news of habit and fire has been thrown at us. So then they responded the thing which has put a barrier between you and the news of the heavens must be something which happened recently, go eastward and westward meaning go and search everywhere and see what has caused to place a barrier between you and the news that you were accessing from the heavens. So some of them would go to different places and eventually some of them came to a place where the Prophet

00:07:59--> 00:08:36

salallahu Alaihe Salam again on the way to the soup, where the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam had stopped for Salah turns budget, in a place known as Nala palm tree, and it was on the way to this soup the soup, oak of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam offered the morning prayer fajr prayer with the Sahaba and when he started reciting the Quran, these devils that had been traveling looking for the source, the reason now that there's a barrier and they can no longer access this information. They heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reciting the Quran insalata adventure, and they listen very, very closely. And then eventually some of them said by Allah so

00:08:36--> 00:09:16

they swore this is the thing which has caused a barrier to be placed between us and the news that we had been eavesdropping from the heavens and then they went back to their people back to the other jinn. And they would say to them, we're falling we are forming in Seminar Quran and algebra, we are the inner rooster if we want to know she can be Rabina Haha, oh our people meaning Oh, our type our kind to the other Jin, Verily, We have heard a wonderful re citation, something amazing extra order. This is the Quran and it shows the true path the path of success. We believed in it and we would not ascribe partners to our Lord so we will not commit to any shirt moving forward. So Allah subhanaw

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

taala revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this surah right here Surah to Indian political heylia and this is basically the context of the revelation according to Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim so this was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the conversation of Legion. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us clarity and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us for our shortcomings. We can say that this surah covers a number of different topics. The main thing is the conversation of the Muslim jinn, as well as Allah subhanaw taala reproaching, the disbelievers of Mecca those who rejected the truth, and then at the end of the surah a warning to

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

them as well. This is generally what the surah is about. Again, the conversation of the jinn in the opening is verses one to 15 and then 16 to 18 you have

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

admonishment about monotheism and staying away from shift and polytheism and then you have an I'll mention why that's so important, and then you will have inshallah Tada and then you will have the disbelievers being reproached. And this is important too, because the people of Mecca are listening to this recitation, and they have some ideas because they already know what the jinn are, they believe in them. And this is linked to the general and overall, an interesting discussion on people's beliefs humanity's beliefs throughout history, even before Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and then the conclusion of the surah is about knowledge being with Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:36--> 00:10:57

well, we'll do now Inshallah, before we introduce the little bit of a discussion on the reality of Legion, let's go ahead and recite the first page of the Surah So if you're using a physical almost half in the Madani, most half, you can inshallah go to the first page of Surah Turgeon utilize the translation that you want if you require translation inshallah Tata

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

Let's go back to the beginning and introduce the reality of the agenda topic itself. So before we delve into the Solon and talk about the tafsir, it's important to first establish some context about this creation of Allah subhanaw taala that we are referring to. And this is to avoid misconceptions that are either cultural due to Arab culture, Desi culture, American culture, Western, secular culture and so on and so forth or any other type of influence that there may be in society. The world of the jinn is an independent and separate world and yet also in many ways it is intertwined with ours. It has its own distinct nature and features that are hidden from the world of the human

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

beings. The

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

The Creation of Allah subhanaw taala, Dejan and human beings have some things in common, such as, for example, our possession of understanding and often the ability to think, rationale rationales and the human mind as well as the choice Free Will the choice between good and the path of evil May Allah subhana always make us amongst the people of good and protect us from the path of evil Aloma, I mean, now, many people today, Muslims or non Muslims have a lot of misunderstandings about the topic of the jinn. Of course, you have some people who don't believe in their reality. Now, these are materialists usually empiricist. They think that these are ancient superstitions or myths are

00:15:39--> 00:16:16

figments of imagination. And of course, they have not formed this opinion, they're their beliefs that they reject the existence of the jinn, they have not based this on a reality on a methodology, rather, they think this type of person thinks that all sources of knowledge in their mind has to be material has to be physical meaning they have to be able to touch it, access it whenever they want, or observe it using only their five senses. So in a way, in terms of philosophy, in terms of science, they are empiricist. These are materialist people who think that nothing beyond the physical world exists. But we know that this is not true. And there are many ways to address this as

00:16:16--> 00:16:53

we will throw out the surah inshallah. Now, of course, these types of people have assumed without reason that nothing in the entire universe exists except what they can see or what they can sense in terms of their five senses what they can test in the lab scientifically, whereas we recognize that to the entirety of human knowledge, in terms of everything we know today in science and physics and information about the past, it's not even a drop of water compared to the ocean, meaning we don't really have knowledge of much, we have knowledge that's given to us by the will of Allah subhanaw taala, about certain things and more and more knowledge over time. And Allah allows us by His will

00:16:53--> 00:17:29

to discover more about the natural world as well. But there are some things that are beyond the scope of the five senses are beyond the scope of just science or beyond the scope of materialism. Anybody with just a basic study of epistemology, the theory of knowledge, meaning how do people know things recognize that there are multiple methods and sources of knowledge, empiricism is one and it's useful, but it's limited as a tool. If you take a tool and you apply it in the wrong place or wrong time, it's not going to be very useful. In fact, they might even harm you. So if you're trying to utilize for example, a pencil like a bottle of water, that's not the right tool for the right

00:17:29--> 00:18:07

activity. If you're trying to utilize a light as a car, that's not the right tool for that activity. So utilize your tool in the proper place and proper time. empiricism is useful as a tool to observe the physical world, it's very useful, we utilize it for many things in science, we've made many advancements, Alhamdulillah, but there is a lot more knowledge beyond just empiricism. Right? So we look to rationalize and we look to testimony right? Every single day, we believe in many things that are based on the testimony of other people. And so, what we take what we take from this and we take from Revelation as well as the clear acknowledgement, that knowledge in terms of everything we know

00:18:07--> 00:18:45

does not come from only one source, so knowledge about certain things is from Allah subhanaw taala and knowledge about for example, the fact that you recognize that I am on screen right now you can observe this empirically, right? So you are you can hear me, right? So you can sense this right now. And so these types of people who think that there is nothing beyond the physical realm, really are immature in their understanding of epistemology, and they're really approaching knowledge, they they the world and the oceans of knowledge, in a very limited fashion, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us and grant us clarity along I mean, unfortunately, brothers and sisters, beyond just

00:18:45--> 00:19:23

talking about non Muslims or atheists or materialists or others, sometimes even Muslims are shaped by certain types of modernism and post modernism, secularism or other value systems out there shaped by movies and TV shows and books that they've read. And oftentimes, if they're not strong or well read in the religion as well, they're going to take some of the things that shape them and the things they consume and start to think differently about the Quran or the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So some Muslims as well have at times denied the existence of the jinn or they don't believe that certain things about them even though they're mentioned in the Quran

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

explicitly, and in other words, the one who rejects the belief in the jinn is rejecting the Quran, the one who rejects belief about the angels is rejecting what a loss pattern has told us so it is a type of code for me Allah subhanaw taala protect us now the Quran frequently mentions the jinn and men human beings mankind in a manner as to indicate clearly that these are two very separate creations you have today unfortunate small group of Muslims who think that well no these are this is all the same thing that Jen are like the human beings and this is just symbolic, metaphorical. No, these are literal communications from Allah subhanaw taala. This is a an actual being an actual

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

will race the race of the jinn and the race of human beings and these are mentioned throughout the Quran Surah Surah to suggest a half of that yet the entirety of sorts of Rockman which addresses both the jinn and human beings in the most repeated idea of the Quran for big Arabic Ummah, the two Beings from the coma to the barn, and sort of out of sorts of hedges suits Rockman explicitly a loss of pattern estates that human beings were created out of clay and dirt and other things of the earth. Whereas the the jinn were created out of a smokeless fire and this has mentioned the authentic hadith as well. So we know this, this is very clear, this is very obvious. The one who is

00:20:36--> 00:21:11

not taking this literally from the Quran and Sunnah is trying to avoid what is obvious what Allah has communicated to us for other reasons, they are shaped by other things. And it's very unfortunate that people are working backwards in terms of the pursuit of truth, that they take certain biases that they have, or things that they desire, the way that in their mind, they think the world should operate. And then they go around looking at the evidence and reshaping the evidence based on what they want. So they try to make the Quran and Sunnah conform to their desires, or to post modernism or 21st century secularism, liberals and progressive philosophy, whatever it may be, they'll take

00:21:11--> 00:21:44

what they want and what they're shaped by here and now of values and ideas and beliefs and then try to shape the Quran and Sunnah by it. And that's not how it works, that's backwards. You start by looking at the source of knowledge that is truthful. And then you look at other things and see through the lens of truth whether or not it measures up to the truth. So you look at what Allah subhanaw taala told you about in the Quran and the authentic hadith. And then you look at other things in society, and you basically address them or measure them based on what you have objective morality and objective truth. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us clarity and to always make us

00:21:44--> 00:22:17

amongst the people of truth and to bring others to the truth as well Allahu me now, there are some things let's talk about the agenda are some things we know about May Allah Subhana Allah allow us to benefit from this knowledge this is not for the sake of just fun. We're not just we're not here sitting, sharing like stories about general stories about human beings. We're talking about a an actual being here we're talking about an actual race created by Allah subhanaw taala and their story begins before the story of human beings when Jana Hoffner hotmail com luminaries, some Allah Subhan Allah says the jinn were created before the creation of the human being, the jinn were created

00:22:17--> 00:22:37

before through or with a smokeless fire. So we know and this is the opinion of most scholars because the verse is pretty explicit that they were created before and Adam Isilon we know his story and the story of Iblees who basically that history has mentioned throughout the Quran, in a number of passages, how he basically

00:22:38--> 00:23:13

disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala became very jealous, whispered to Adam and Solomon Hawa. And so we know that if he was there from the beginning, before even the soul was blown into the body of other medicine and that the creation of the gene had had existed before human beings, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us clarity on these matters, Aloma me and in surah 12 Cafe in case anybody ever is affected or you run across or you run into any of these modernist or any of these post modernists or somebody who's trying to reshape the religion or make you wonder or they're affected by Christian theology. We don't believe in Fallen Angels we do not believe in Fallen Angels angels

00:23:13--> 00:23:47

are infallible they don't have choice when either commanded by Allah lie or soon Allahumma Amano, we have Phalguna your model. So we don't believe that the jinn are angels. No, the angels are separate being altogether created from light in fact, the prophets of Allah is Allah mentioned. The angels were created from light the jinn were created from smokeless fire and mankind was created or adam meister was created from that which was described to you meaning from clay and dirt described to you in the Quran and Sunnah. So we already know this, in Surah to the calf we recite every Friday, about Emily's disobeying Allah subhanaw taala Can I mean and Jeannie Professor Khan amblyopic So he is

00:23:47--> 00:24:21

amongst the jinn and yet his status was so high so he's worshiping with the angels and he was worshiping Allah subhanaw taala for many years, what are some other things we know about them from the Quran or from the Sunnah, some of the random tidbits that may benefit us insha Allah to Allah as a context for the surah for example, they are able to see human beings but we are not able to see them this was a gift or a blessing or a testing given to them by Allah subhanaw taala and to human beings as well. You know who you're welcome, who are Kabira who will hate you later on, and also how their mixes explicit clear meaning what you cannot see them in their original form. You can see them

00:24:21--> 00:24:56

in other forms, which we'll talk about later in the Tafseer Inshallah, tada, there are different types as well. They're not all the same. So ALLAH SubhanA created different types and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam explained this to us. For example, in one of the authentic hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the jinn are of three types. And this is an example a type that has wings and they fly through the air, a type that looks like snakes and dogs and a type that stops for rest and then resumes its journey. All of these will talk about later in show law time. They are also given powers or abilities that human beings do not have. Does this mean they are superior? No,

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

absolutely not. How do we know this? Allah subhanaw taala has told us

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

about some of their powers in the Quran and we know some from the authentic hadith, such as some of them having the ability to travel very quickly, very fast by the will of Allah subhanaw taala with the story of Prophet Solomon Ali salaam, I urge you to attend the lecture tomorrow as well. With the story of Prophet Solomon Isilon, we recognize, for example, the jinn who was guaranteeing that he would bring the throne of the Queen of Saba in Yemen to Jerusalem to watch to Prophet Solomon Ali cinemas palace in a moment faster than then would be needed for a person to stand up from the place where he was sitting, and then another one even indicated, he would bring it faster than that

00:25:33--> 00:26:10

quicker than you can blink your eyes. And that's how fast that particular gene was, but they're not all of the same speed or powers. Now, does this mean that they are superior Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran that he created the human beings to be upon this earth as a hadith in the journal Phil of the Khalifa, a caretaker of this earth but also a person of authority, a person who is supposed to represent Allah subhanaw taala on this earth, meaning the rulings of Allah subhanaw taala. This is mentioned in the Quran in surah, tobacco, so to recap as well. So we know that the human beings were given a preference and a high status amongst the creation of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:26:10--> 00:26:49

And although the jinn were given and blessed with many blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala in terms of their powers or their abilities, compared to human beings, we would not base a person status or a racist status on physical capacities, because some animals weren't given powers greater than human beings, or they're larger in size, like dinosaurs, or blue whales, or anything like that. And some animals that fly in humans cannot fly, for example, but these are not really arguments that animals are superior to human beings. So that's not how you measure what is or what is not superior. Rather, we go based on what Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Quran, in terms of their

00:26:49--> 00:27:22

limitations, they are not able to do everything. So don't think that these are just limitless. In power, no, rather, for example, loss pattern informs us that they are not able to fly up to a certain place in the heavens, when they try to eavesdrop and take that information that's being passed down from the angels or discussed amongst the angels and being passed down to the human beings, they're not not able to do that they have limitations in terms of where they can ascend to so they cannot ascend beyond a certain place in the heavens, according to many ayat in the Quran. And some scholars say that's the limitation of their capacity, meaning they cannot even leave some

00:27:22--> 00:28:00

scholars said they would not to be able to leave then the atmosphere to listen to news beyond that. So this is the opinion of some scholars because of the IRS, they say, even if they're not going to eavesdrop, this is their limitation. Also, they don't have access to knowledge of the Unseen or any type of divine secret. Or, for example, like, you know, some things that people have been passing down from generation to generation, throughout history and different types of tribes and spiritual movements and indigenous people in different places. We used to have spiritual religions and they would worship spirits and they would worship beings, oftentimes, really what they were doing was

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

committing *ake and rather, they were worshipping not Allah subhanaw taala but rather worldly beings. They were either worshiping human beings or they were worshipping the jinn or worshipping idols at time, at times, and sometimes they were worshiping even the natural creation. So you have many cases of people who would worship the sun or the moon, may Allah subhanaw taala grant us some guidance and protection and utilize us to benefit and guide and protect other people as well along I mean, we also know from the Quran and Sunnah that like human beings, the jinn are given free will. So this is the test for them as well obedience or disobedience, faith or disbelief, Ninja or

00:28:36--> 00:29:08

hellfire. And on the Day of Judgment we see in the Quran as well many conversations of the human beings and the jinn, conversing with Allah subhanaw taala conversing with one another conversing agenda, conversing and hellfire. These are mentioned throughout the Quran, you have some references in spiritual our raw Surah to the Heart Sutra region. We also know from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that they have food and drink that they procreate. They reproduce, like human beings do as well, but they have their own way of doing so. For example, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam said that someone from among the jinn, the Muslim Jinn had called him and he went

00:29:08--> 00:29:41

with him recited Quran for them, he took us and he showed us the traces of where they had been in the trenches of their fires. They asked him for food and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you can have every bone on which the name of Allah has been mentioned, meaning what Bismillah on which the name of Allah has been mentioned, that comes into your possession as meat and all the droppings as food for your animals. So this is a dua the prophets Allah said and for the Muslim Jin as well. And it's a reminder for us that when you eat to always say Bismillah, the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala upon it, you're also feeding your brothers and your sisters of the jinn. In terms of

00:29:41--> 00:30:00

where they live. They live on this earth like human beings do. Some of them are found in isolated places, sometimes an unclean places, sometimes in distant places from human beings or civilization. We don't understand the dimension that they live in. We don't understand the overlap between the dimensions. There are a lot of things we don't have access to under

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

Stan or knowledge about we take what we have information from Allah subhanaw taala or revealed to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, but ultimately here the Prophet alayhi salatu salam gave us and taught us precautions when you enter certain places that you say Bismillah you recite certain ethical or certain dua when you enter the bathroom you must always make the DUA as you're entering the bathroom Allama in the Ruby terminal who will say well how about it all I seek refuge with you from the evil ones of the males and females meaning the devil's so there are many dua that we will cover later on inshallah Tada in terms of protection, but they live everywhere. They live in many

00:30:35--> 00:31:09

different places. Sometimes yes, the bathroom is in terms of those who are evil, but sometimes in other places that humans don't have, perhaps, or access to or contact with in that area. Maybe sometimes out in nature, sometimes distance from a city life, Allah subhanaw taala ultimately knows best. Now, as we stated, some of them believe some of them disbelieve, so they are just like human beings. In that case, there are many, there's a spectrum of different types of belief and even sects, Sunni and Shia, and others amongst them and different languages and civilizations. Amongst them, they speak the languages of usually their local people, and some of them perhaps speak

00:31:09--> 00:31:45

multiple languages just like human beings. And Allah subhanaw taala knows best. Now the objective of a police after he committed his act of Kufa and rejected the Command of Allah subhanho wa taala. He made it very clear that his objective was to take down as many human beings as possible, and he said and he threatened that I will try to take them all straight. When it will be London home, I will try to misguide all of them, and he will try to make people have hopes false hopes in the pursuit of this world. And there are many strategies mentioned in the Quran, the strategies and trips, tricks and traps of the devil as well as from the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, these are things that are

00:31:45--> 00:32:21

laid out for us but Allah subhanaw taala reminds us as well, in shaytaan, Alok Kumar will do one factor few who are the devil amongst the jinn. And this is the difference between a Shavon a devil and a jin jin is the creation itself the entire race are called Jin whereas the Evil Ones amongst them are called che are clean in the plural or Shavon. In the singular. They are trying to miss nine mankind We ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us. Allah promises us to be protected and promises Allah about the criminal law saying that those who are righteous will not be affected in arriba de la sala Karine Sultan and Illa Manitoba aka except for those who follow you falling from the

00:32:21--> 00:33:00

heedless, you know when we ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from heedlessness and to make us sincere and constantly seeking the vicar and July and Iman and acts of worship that protect us with full confidence and certainty and trust in Allah subhanahu wa taala. Now, we recognize that for some people, this topic was taught the wrong way. Or maybe some people have apprehension in studying yet or maybe they were frightened by it because of their stories that they heard or experiences, the way that it was taught was not perhaps the most prophetic way, the most Islamic way in terms of the impact and the framing of the words because the jinn can see human beings and we cannot see them the

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

Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam taught us many ways to protect ourselves from their harm, such as by seeking refuge with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada from the accursed devils all the bIllahi min ash shaytaan Raji, such as by reciting and Fatiha reciting in baccarat it's a very powerful protection area to recruit see the most powerful AI in the Quran, as was the last to soften fetlocks Surah to NAS or a protection you should constantly be reciting as well as the DUA mentioned in surah. Two and what we know Makarov br who will be coming hamazon he shall clean while we will be Colombia. Tarun My Lord say My Lord, I seek refuge with you from the whisperings or suggestions of the devils and I seek

00:33:37--> 00:34:12

refuge with You, my Lord less they may attend or come near to me meaningless they have a presence near me. Another thing you can do say Bismillah all the time before you do anything. When you say Bismillah before you enter your home. There's an authentic report that mentions from ibn Abi dunya Rahim Allah, it mentioned that two levels were talking one was strong, well nourished, well fed, and the other was very weak and fragile. And as they were talking, one of them said, Why are you so strong? He said, I'm with someone I'm with a companion. Everyone has a companion of the angels and a Neville I am with someone who every time he enters his house, he does not say Bismillah he does not

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

mention the name of Allah. And when he sits down to eat or drink he does not mention or she does not mention the name of Allah. So I have a place to stay I have food to consume and have drinks for myself to quench my thirst. And basically they're constantly surrounding this individual this human being. The other one said I'm with a companion who always mentions the name of Allah when they enter their home so I have no place to stay meaning I can enter the home with them. When they're about to sit down and eat they always mentioned the name of Allah so I have no food and I have no drink. The Muslim knows from the Quran and from the sunnah to protect themselves. We even when you are when

00:34:45--> 00:35:00

you're doing something that you consider materialists, when you consider that it has no impact or religiosity always say Bismillah in the Name of Allah, there's more better any protection in it, blessings in it, you're being protected in so many ways. And this includes details that yes, they are mentioned in

00:35:00--> 00:35:29

Quran and Sunnah even in terms of, you know, intimacy with one spouse or eating your next meal or that drink that you're having right now the water you're about to consume during this lecture, you say, Bismillah, you are protected, and you are blessed in that act of worship and you are rewarded for it. So you mentioned the name of Allah subhanaw taala. All these instances, when you put on your clothes, take off your clothes, you mentioned the name of Allah for protection so that the devils cannot see you while you're not wearing your clothes. When you enter the bathroom, you leave the bathroom, you mentioned the name of Allah subhanaw taala. And you are protected. These are mentioned

00:35:29--> 00:36:07

in many authentic hadith and there's a lot more to say about this. This is the introduction to the topic in general, there's a lot more to say we ask Allah subhanaw taala to us to benefit from it. Now some of the people of Germany and before Islam polytheist people who worshipped idols or spirits or multiple deities, they used to think that the devils were associates of the Creator or deities that were sub gods or sub or demigods and so on and so forth. All this *, all these these ridiculous thoughts, this ignorance in terms of polytheism throughout history, including, for example, in Greek mythology, including many indigenous religions, where people used to worship the

00:36:07--> 00:36:42

Fire Spirits, this the rain spirits, the god of this and God of that we know that these are oftentimes either imaginary, or these are devils that they would worship and they would pursue and the devils would do things back to them. So they knew that these were actual things this is not in their minds, but ultimately committed shirk in many ways. We ask Allah subhanaw taala, to protect us and to allow us to see the truth is truth. That if we were to recognize the reality of the angels, and the jinn, alongside our reality, as human beings, a lot more clarity would be given to us into society about the conflict of good and evil, also about ideologies, different ideologies, and

00:36:42--> 00:37:21

politics, and systems. And we're talking about secularism, liberalism, even different forms of philosophical strands that are offshoots of religions and new religions and innovations. We recognize that they all stray away from that one truth, that one knew what Allah Subhanallah mentioned, there's one light in this world, one slit on one path, that street and everything around it is a deviation. That's why almost as I mentioned, the blue mat, multiple darknesses, and one light, so it is one path forward towards Allah subhanho wa taala. When we recognize the reality of the jinn, we start to see with a lot more clarity, not only not just the Muslim jinn, but even the

00:37:21--> 00:37:55

devils as well, a lot more clarity about the conflict of good and evil in this world. And the need for us to be aware and knowledgeable and wise and protecting ourselves and communities in terms of education, knowledge, the way you entertain yourself, the way you take care of your family, the livelihood, everything that you're doing. It's based on clarity is based on information from Allah subhanho wa taala. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us from amongst those who benefit from these reminders Allama Amin, this is the introduction to the topic of the June and I say it's an introduction, because there is a lot more to say about it, we will cover some of it throughout the

00:37:55--> 00:38:30

Surah In sha Allah, and by the end of the Tafseer of the surah evening now, if you're interested in more information, I'll recommend a few books that you can read as well if you're interested in this topic, and I do recommend it for all people. I think it's a blessing that we have information like this that many people are unaware of, or they have misconceptions about due to culture or society or media or whatever it is that they consumed growing up. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us and grant us the ability to see the truth as truth and to follow it and to see the falsehood as falsehood and to stay away from it alone. I mean, let's delve into the first I have a surah yes, this was all the

00:38:30--> 00:39:08

introduction. Let's delve into the first I have the surah Hulu heylia Anna who stamina phenomenon Ginnifer call you in Samina Quran and others say or prophet has been revealed to me that a group of the jinn so these are Muslims now they listened to the Quran and then they said to their fellow gene, indeed we have heard a wonderous or wonderful or remarkable or amazing or otherworldly re citation Quran in algebra Quran also means not just literally the Quran, the speech of Allah subhanaw taala it also means the RE citation. Now when they say no stemma that they listen, and when it says For Katarina, Samia, Ana, Quran and Arjuna. This shows that the agenda at that time perhaps

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

were not visible to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam According to some scholars, or that he did know that he knew that the Quran was being recited in solitude veget on the way to the soup, what Allah subhanaw taala informed him of the incident afterwards by revelation. So that's the context that we gave earlier from Abdullah and ibis and all the long run. He also stated about the incident, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had not recited the Quran before the gene, nor did he see them about that particular incidence later on. Yes, there were many recitations and discussions with them and Dawa to them and many of them became Muslim, Quran and algebra, the words in the original are Khurana

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

algebra, which means something which is recited again and again and again and also something that is wonderful, something that is remarkable. And so as they're using this description for the Quran, knowing that they are listening to something in their language, so again, we mentioned the jinn like human beings understand that

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

different languages and in that area you can assume in Arabia that they speak the Arabic language. And so when they heard the Quran being recited even they knew that this was not the speech of a human being that this is not man made. It's not from the gene that this is not poetry. They knew this was a wonderous other worldly recitation, they recognize this is the speech of God to mankind. And this is why they became Muslim and went back to their people and informed them about this. So as they understood the recitation of the Quran, and they knew that it was matchless, you cannot imitate it in any way whatsoever. They also heard the contents of what it was calling to. So what did they

00:40:35--> 00:41:14

say I and number two, Yun de la roche de manera v one a new silica Rabina Ohana this Quran that's being recited, it leads to true right guidance, so we believed in it for our money, and we will never associate anyone with our Lord in worship. So they became believers in Allah subhanho wa taala. And this sheds light on a few things. Number one, that the Djinn do not do not deny the existence of Allah subhanaw taala and the fact that Allah is the Lord and Creator and Sustainer number two, that amongst them as well, there are polytheist Mushrikeen, just like there are human beings as well. And as some human beings ascribed divinity or divine traits to other than Allah

00:41:14--> 00:41:50

subhanaw taala like to a human being or like to Jesus, some of the jinn would do so as well. So when they heard the Quran, they recognize what it's calling us to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone with no *, no association with God. Number three. Another thing we recognize here is that the prophethood and revelation of divine Scriptures does not exist amongst agents, as far as we know, but whoever amongst them believes they believe in the prophets raised amongst human beings, and in the books that were brought by these human beings. And this has mentioned in the Quran on a number of occasions that the prophets of the times would speak to, for example, the jinn so in other words,

00:41:50--> 00:42:27

Prophet musante Salam, they understood who he was, they listened to him. We don't know the exact specifics or details, but we know that they were followers of Prophet Musa Salam, they heard the Quran and they recognized and this has mentioned in the Quran as well. They recognize that this Quran the final revelation rather, this could earn and the final revelation of a true prophet muhammad sallallahu sallam was more Sunday was confirming the reality of previous prophets and messengers. So this is mentioned in the Quran. We recognize here that human beings were sent, the prophets were sent for human beings and for the jinn. And this is an honor for the human beings and

00:42:27--> 00:43:04

for the Gambia and Mosul. Now, there are some quick gems we can take from this ayah as well. Allah subhanaw taala is telling us about this conversation and pay attention to how you frame the Quran when you talk about it. The first time they hear it, they're going back to their people and saying yesterday that washed that this Quran that we heard, and this is all from Salah to fetch it from one prayer, this Quran guides to that which is good or rushed, what is rushed, rushed and it has many meanings is a term that is comprehensive, and includes everything, all things that bring people to perfect their religious and worldly affairs. And so therefore we can say any person who's successful

00:43:04--> 00:43:39

as a Muslim or Muslim especially today, the successful dua the people who bring others to Allah subhanaw taala are those who are most referencing of the Quran and most connected to it. Why? Because that's the source of rush. That's the source of guidance. That's the source of rectification. You're not calling them to something corrupt or something broken or your own ideology. No, you're calling them to the Scripture, the book of Allah subhanaw taala his speech that is the source of Rajya de la Rocha. So we believe in it. Number three, the Quran calls to every type of need and speech that is established upon true success rushed and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to

00:43:39--> 00:44:14

make us for monks, those who follow this one, Allah Subhana Allah mentions in the ayah we usually recite this really frequently in the month of Ramadan, which by the way is around the corner along with a little Ramadan which Allah female in Mongolia May Allah grant us on life to Ramadan. It's already Subhanallah almost three months away. Allah subhanaw taala reminds us filioque Marina will be friendlier Sergi bully when you mean OB la Allah homie optional. Let my servants as well who are calling upon me respond to me respond to my message by submitting to me and believe in it so that they may succeed that Allah home Yo*sune how is this success going to be established? How are you

00:44:14--> 00:44:57

going to find it is through the Quran? Yeah, he either rushed. And finally number four, society and civilization, human civilization, civilized civilization of all backgrounds, including China, Russia, America, Europe, the Middle East, all across Africa, all across South America, the entirety of human civilization will never ever reach its pinnacle. In morality, its peak in purity and clarity and tranquility and guidance without the Quran. This is a fact. And this is based on everything that we have historically and everything we study through the Quran, that despite your advancements in technology or science or worldly things, your departure away from the source of true

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

success and Guidance means what you are actually failing.

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

More and more and more morally as a society, and ethically in terms of your connection with the truth and how you treat one another and the oppression that's spreading in the world. And so society, including the place where you live, and the places you advocate for, will never reach that pinnacle. Without the Quran. This requires us to rethink how often we are talking about Islam with others, and how often we are utilizing the Quran as a framework to solve the problems of society. You can't be a social justice, quote, unquote, Warrior, if you're not going to actually from the Islamic perspective, utilize the source of guidance for humanity, you're bringing your own ideas or

00:45:38--> 00:46:14

the ideas of one movement or one sect or one liberal philosophy that's not going to resolve oppression and evil in the world. In fact, that may contribute to it long term and we ask Allah to protect us and grant us clarity. The solution for humanity is through the revelation of Allah subhanaw taala the solution in terms of American politics in terms of European politics, in terms of the oppressions and broken systems, and corruption, and so on and so forth, and the injustice and on the clear social inequality and the racism, and the discrimination against different groups, and oftentimes, certain people getting away with their crimes, so on and so forth, and the bribery and

00:46:14--> 00:46:52

the corruption of the top levels. None of that will be resolved without utilizing the framework that Allah subhanaw taala gave us, Jana de la Rocha, Mia was part that allow us to recognize this and utilize it along with me. Verse number three, one now Jota Allah gender Rabina metalphoto. So hematol whether whether they they are singing as well, now we believe that our Lord exalted is His Majesty do Robina has neither taken a mage nor an offspring, Jen do Rabina has been explained by even Ambassador the Aloha and meaning as the actions of Allah, His commands his powers, and also his exalted status. So that these gene that are that are speaking were either from amongst the Christian

00:46:52--> 00:47:15

jinn, or they were followers of a different religion in which Allah subhanaw taala those people like Christians and others thoughts of that there was a family to Lord or Trinity in terms of Children and Families, but we don't believe this as Muslims. So these people, the Muslim gene now are expressing that No, God does not have a meat nor any offspring. Also, as well we take from this at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam reciting

00:47:17--> 00:47:54

parts of the Quran hearing which they basically realize the jinn that they had errors in their Hockley. That their creed or their their belief systems. And they knew that it was sheer Jehanne ignorance to an arrogance to ascribe a spouse or a wife or children to Allah subhanaw taala who is exalted in status and perfect and not in need of any of these things. And all of this is summarized with Allah Who Allahu Ahad Allahu Samad lamea and voila Mulan Why don't we economical for one a hug but it's also mentioned throughout the Quran number four why now who cannot your whole new Sophie wanna other law he shadow and that the foolish amongst us used to utter outrageous falsehoods about

00:47:54--> 00:48:29

Allah. Again all of this please remember brothers and sisters so you're not feeling lost. All of these opening is the first 15 is approximately or these are the conversations these are the statements of the Muslim jinn and they are not all in one conversation meaning what are the important things that you need to know Allah subhanaw taala told us about the important parts of these conversations Allah subhanaw taala has informed us that these statements are mentioned for a reason and look at the honor and blessing to these Muslim jinn. May Allah reward them for spreading the downward to others as well, that they were so honored by Allah subhanho wa taala, that their

00:48:29--> 00:49:05

words are now being recited eternally, we are resetting them forever until the end of times. So in terms of verse number four, the word Sofia Hoonah. Use in this context can refer to either an individual or to a group. Some scholars say if it's referring to one individual, who are they referring to here, if you had to guess. So if the gene are referring to one individual who's foolish amongst them, who used to utter outrageous falsehoods about Allah subhanaw taala, who do you think this is referring to? I'll let you comment in the chat. And if this is for a group, they said it would imply a group of foolish levels amongst them who used to say such things. And the reality is

00:49:05--> 00:49:43

the foolish people today are everywhere. The foolish people today in terms of Sufi Hoonah, amongst us in civilization and society, are everywhere. The foolish people are seeing foolish things on social media, and throughout movies and TV shows for the last 100 years, as well as in politics, in academia, in books, in articles that people are reading and consuming all over social media and so on and so forth. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us may Allah Subhana Allah guide us me lots of data from give us so Sophie, one of the foolish amongst us, since nobody guessed yet if this is referring to one yes, it is referring to they mentioned also referring to Emily's, and if this is

00:49:43--> 00:49:59

referring to a group, it's referring to a group amongst them that they would say outrageous lies against the last panel data all of you got it in the chat medical vehicle. Now, brothers and sisters in terms of our application, one one very clear cut thing we can take from this IRA.

00:50:01--> 00:50:37

The increase in foolish people and falsehood in society should motivate us to increase our efforts to spread what we know to be true. And what is good. In other words, just because there's an increase in foolishness and people saying the wrong things about God or religion or reality, and people are just in general upon falsehood, when this increases through social media and through the internet, through politics, when this increases in the world, you're not supposed to sit back and say, well, there's there's, there's such an increase, what are we going to do? We've lost hope. There's just too much to handle. No, in fact, we are out at our greatest numbers today than ever

00:50:37--> 00:51:12

before almost 2 billion Muslims in the world in terms of quantity. Let us now focus on the quality if we if we recognize and you recognize and increase in Haram in the world, an increase in falsehood and increase in foolish people say foolish things about religion are gone, then you are required to put in more effort and more Muslims are required to focus on the quality of the effort and the strategy of the effort in order to resolve some of these problems in the world and to show some of these people what the truth is so that they are not following foolishness. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us and also utilize us for what is hired along with me. In verse number five, we're now

00:51:12--> 00:51:48

gonna learn to code and install Jinyuan Allah Hikkaduwa and they said, we certainly thought that humans and genes would never speak lies of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala meaning how can there have been these foolish people amongst us who would say such things? We were misled by those falsehoods because we could never think that the human beings or the jinn could ever dare forge a lie against Allah subhanaw taala but now, having heard this Quran, we now know that in fact, they were liars. They were foolish people, and that's why they referred to them in the previous eye as Sufi Hoonah May Allah subhanaw taala grant us clarity immunospot Allah protect us from the negative influences

00:51:48--> 00:52:25

of other people. Hola, Miami. Now this brings us to item number six and then we have here a story and some action items for protection. So in terms of alien number six Allah's Pantera continues with telling us about their conversation, why no cannot reach out to me in an NC ER or doing a video and immunology further ado, humoral Hapa and some human beings some men used to seek refuge with some of the jinn so they used to increase each other in evil or wickedness. What does this refer to specifically? So for example, generally speaking today we can say that the jinn had helped human beings with some things of evil or magic or other things that are evil May Allah protect us all,

00:52:25--> 00:53:03

while they had a feeling of importance because the human beings were following them or or believing in them. But the story here is really interesting if an ambassador of the Allahu Anhu says that in the pre Islamic days of January, so pre Islamic ignorance before the final revelation before Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam was given revelation, when the Arabs used to spend a night in any place that was uninhabited. Usually, a desolate valley, they used to shout out to this was their habits because they do not know any better they used to Shabbat we that we are seeking the refuge of the devils, they used to say we're seeking the refuge of the Jinn of this place, who is the owner of

00:53:03--> 00:53:40

this valley. So we're asking for protection for whoever is basically the owner here, whoever is the protector here. And for example, in another tough scene, we find an example. If they were in a place where they had run short of water than the wandering Bedouins would send one of their men to a place another place to seek some water or resources. And when they found this new place out, usually that in uninhabited, when they would go to this new place under their direction, they would start to shout out, before they even halted to pitch their camp, they would start to shout out that we're seeking refuge of the one who sustains this valley so that we may live here at peace from every like

00:53:40--> 00:54:18

calamity or evil. So they're shouting out to whom they're not showing up to Allah subhanaw taala. They're committing a type of * here by asking for protection from the locals as well. And this is actually referencing that they believe that every uninhabited place was under the control of one or another of the jinn. And if that if somebody stayed there without seeking their refuge or protection, that they would either trouble the settlers there or to cause them problems or something else. And so these believing Jinda Muslims here are referring to that very same thing. That's what's referenced in a number six. They meant that when human beings the whole affair of Allah, in this

00:54:18--> 00:54:55

world, the human being that is a Khalifa in this world, a caretaker and authority in this world, when they started fearing them, the jinn without any reason and they started seeking their refuge instead of God's refuge. It caused their people to become even more arrogant. Why? Because they saw the humans afraid of them. So they became more arrogant and more wicked. So this increase in wickedness and these people became even more basically fearless and bold in adopting their ways of error and ways of disbelief. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us all and grant us clarity and allow us to benefit from this reminder. This brings us to the topic of protection. Oftentimes, the reason

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

some people are either apprehensive to study this topic or maybe they don't understand

00:55:00--> 00:55:34

It fully or maybe they weren't given the wrong information about it Subhan Allah is because there are misunderstandings about protection being protected by Allah subhanaw taala now the strength of faith Iman and religion in general will prevent the devils or anything in society in the world animals devils humans from harming a human being. So much so that even if they were to fight a human being so if they were to take human form and find a human being, the human being the believer was strong Iman, by the will of Allah subhanaw taala would win. So in an authentic hadith, Abdullah bin Mr. regrow the long run, he mentioned, a man from amongst the Sahaba from the companions of Muhammad

00:55:34--> 00:56:12

Sallallahu Sallam met a man in basically a gene in the form of a human being. So he met one of the jinn who was in the form of a human being. And then they wrestled, and the Muslim, the believer knocked down the gene. So he beat him in the fight in the match. And then the human said to him, you seem puny and small and weak compared to me, and your forearms look like the front paws of a dog. And he asked him, do all of the jinn look like this? Or only you? He said, No, by Allah, amongst them, I am strong. So yes, you beat me. And you said, I'm weak and puny, but compared to the rest of them, I'm actually one of the stronger ones. But I said, Let's wrestle again. And if you defeat me,

00:56:12--> 00:56:50

I will teach you something that will benefit you. The human being said, find the believer. So he wrestled him again. And finally when he won, the gentle the human being recite, Allahu Allah, Allah who will hire you to the end of the I uttered corsi recite this, and you will never recite this either in your house, except that the shaitan will flee will run from it like a donkey. He said in the house, like a donkey breaking wind, and he will never come back in Munich, he does not have access to come back until the next morning. And we know what that if you recite it in the morning, your house is protected until evening, you're reciting the evening, you're protected until morning.

00:56:50--> 00:57:26

So in one Hadith similar to this, by the way, who was this companion in another report? He said, Do you know who that was? And they said, was it or more or whatever you have? Probably Allah Juan. He said, Who else could it have been? Meaning? Yes, of course, it was almost all the Allahu Anhu that's how strong he was in Iman. Now, in another report from Abu Hooray not only allow one in a long report, he met this person who looked odd and weird, who was stealing the Zika upgrade on the lawn was guarding it. That person stole this data caught him and he tackled him. He said his feet were like, they had like pause. He looked like a human by his feet and like pause, and he tackled him and

00:57:26--> 00:57:58

he said, let me go and I'll teach you something. And so eventually I'm paraphrasing the story. He taught him that if you recite Hola Hola, in who will hire you. Allah will protect your home from the devils throughout the night. And so you recite it throughout the night. If you recite it in the daytime, you're protected day and night. Whoo hoo read on the Allahu Allah and what did he do? He has to check this information. So he goes to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he informed of what's happened. And the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Do you know who that was? Or Buddha that was a devil, that was a devil or that was the devil. Sada who occurred? He told you the truth about

00:57:58--> 00:58:32

it could see but he is a liar, pathological liar. And generally speaking, the devil is amongst them. Some of them are known to lie a lot like that is one of their treats. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us and make us amongst the people of truth. Now there is a misconception. I don't know if some of you have heard this before. Let's clarify what it is. Is it prohibited to be outside at relative time? What is the prohibition? What is this discussion that some Muslims have about the time of Muslims, specifically, the time of sunset? I don't know it has anyone here for example, those of you who are listening live, have you ever had the experience as a child or maybe even as a

00:58:32--> 00:59:07

parent? In which at the time of sunset, you asked your children to come inside? And perhaps some of them wondered why or did not fully understand or maybe there are misconceptions? Yes, bring the children inside at another time. Excellent. And oftentimes children would say why, why, why and I remember this with some, some of my own family members as well. The question of why and not maybe fully understanding it. Excellent. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said so let's talk about this hadith about the the protection at that time and what happens at that time. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when the wings of the night spread, meaning when the evening Muslim

00:59:07--> 00:59:39

time comes, the sun begins to set, keep your children inside or bring your children inside for the devil has come out at that specific time. This doesn't mean the entire night. This means at that time, and then he said sal Allahu alayhi salam when part of the night has passed and let them go, I mean, if they want to go outside after that, that's fine, and close the doors but mentioned the name of Allah, close your doors but also saying Bismillah only close your doors for the shaitan does not open a closed or he cannot open a door in which you said Bismillah and tie up your water skins the water skins is where they kept to water like let's say a water bottle today. Tie them up don't leave

00:59:39--> 01:00:00

them open and mentioned the name of Allah say Bismillah and cover your vessels. Again like a bottle of water and your food, cover your food cover your vessels and also mention the name of Allah Bismillah even if you only put something over them and extinguish Of course your lamps when you sleep. These were the lamps of fire so that the devils would not mess with any of them and cause a fire or the animals

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

As well my scorpions something would not run into the fire and cause basically a fire in that house and another Hadith Do not let your animals and children go out when the sun has set until the first part of the night is over for the devils come out when the night sets until the first part of the night is over. This is the Hadith of the Prophet SAW I sent him two different reports here. In terms of our discussion on protection here. We have a few things to note Igneel Josie rahamallah he comments on this. So to the sister who asked the question, why not for adults? He says rather there's a fear for children at that particular time. Because number one one possibility is that

01:00:38--> 01:01:21

there is a an agenda or impurity that the devil specifically would seek and it's usually present with children more likely with children at that time rather than adults. Another reason and more importantly here much more likely is that the they can remember to Allah subhanaw taala and that would protect them is usually absent from children. So here there's an action item that if you are ever outside at night or you are ever in that situation, that you are basically mentioning the name of Allah and protecting your children giving basically doing a cuddle Messiah cuddle sambar the prophets lie Selim upon and Hassan what Hussein his the young nieces and nephews, Radi Allahu Anhu.

01:01:21--> 01:01:56

Man, he would basically make dua on them. So you might say on your son or on your daughter, for a son, for example, you could say oh, are you can you carry Mattila hintermann coalition Antonio Hummer, when we call it a llama, you can say these do art for yourself, and you should all the time as a parent or guardian or sibling. But then the question is, what about children, children oftentimes are not making drawing the cut for themselves. So parents, one of the rights of your children upon you is that you're not just protecting your children physically in a building or have an alarm system or protect them emotionally or financially. Now you must be protecting them

01:01:56--> 01:02:31

religiously as well with Vicodin during the night. And so oftentimes children don't have this protection. So this is one possible wisdom of why it's better to bring them inside at this time. And also when the devil spread out, they hang on to whatever they can hang on to. So I'm in Josie Rama law says so there's a great fear for children at that time, or animals because animals also not making dua and they care. But adults believers generally are and these are Sahaba that were listening to this advice or making this dua. So this is not directed at adults unless of course they are not protecting themselves with the morning and evening. supplications. He also says that the

01:02:31--> 01:03:09

reason why they spread out at that time is that they they were more able to move about at night than during the day because darkness is more conducive to their devilish forces coming together than any other time meaning the than the day or the night and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada knows best. I want it to be noted that this does not mean that it is prohibited to be outdoors. The fear was for children, the concern is for children who are not protected by vicar and dua. But if someone is outdoors or you're in your car, you're attending an event, don't worry, this is not what we're seeing rather making dua indican for protection. But generally speaking, if you're at home and your children are

01:03:09--> 01:03:43

playing in the garden or playing outside, and most likely young children as well, toddlers are not saying you are and they can on themselves, bring them indoors at that specific time at that specific time of sunset. And Allah subhanaw taala knows best but don't worry about this in terms of generally being out or being somewhere with your family, rather make dua for everyone there and for your children as well. And Allah knows best Imam and no more comments on this. And he says, This hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam about bringing your children inside at that time, he said it includes a number of different types of goodness and etiquette which combined both the interest of

01:03:43--> 01:04:20

this life and the next life, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam enjoying these etiquettes for us because they are a cause of safety from the harm of specific levels. And Allah subhanaw taala gave us all of these means causes of being saved from this specific harm. In other words, I want you to consider that when we say say Bismillah you know, when you drink your water when you cover your water when you open your door that you're getting in the habit of taking all the means Allah subhanaw taala gave you as well as dua for your children then there is no harm there's nothing to worry about after that. So your trust is in Allah subhanaw taala that you did your part. This hadith

01:04:20--> 01:04:59

generally gives us an action item that is very powerful. And there is even we use the word this could be life changing for so many people the difference between life and death of the heart between happiness and sadness in life between success and failure in certain types of paradigms and definitions. This hadith encourages us and these ayat as well that we are studying to remember Allah subhana wa Tada in these cases and other similar situations. And so this is why many scholars say it is most the hub highly recommended and rewarding to mention the name of Allah subhanaw taala over everything over everything that matters, everything that matters to me everything you can do

01:05:00--> 01:05:35

and to praise Allah subhanaw taala at the beginning of everything that matters to because of this hadith and many others, so the question we asked here, feel free to answer very briefly and quickly in the chat, inshallah Tada. Someone may ask, and this is a common question, but what are some practical ways for someone who's never been saying Bismillah very irregularly to start increasing their habit of always saying Bismillah so Bismillah we turn on the lights turn on your computer, start with your phone, start your car, enter the bathroom exit whatever it is, there's a dua you're supposed to make. How do you help someone begin with this particular habit? And of course, aside

01:05:35--> 01:06:09

from just saying, we'll just say more, how can someone practically inshallah Tana, begin to increase this habit of always remembering to say, Bismillah? What are some tips that some of you might share from your own experiences, from your own lives from your own habits that you've built? Number one, start off small and say Bismillah with all the necessities, excellent, does that make it a wonderful? So start off with some of the things that you usually associate with saying Bismillah right, so all the meals and so on and so forth? Great, Mashallah. Sticky Notes. Wonderful, very practical and visual. Excellent. Number three, connecting what you do for the sake of Allah.

01:06:09--> 01:06:38

Excellent, absolutely. And in fact, this brings us to my next point, if you always get in the habit of saying, Bismillah, you're going to always be connecting that action, even if it's a worldly thing to Allah subhanho wa taala. And so now you're in a state of worship constantly, you're being rewarded for it, your sleep, your work, your studies that you're turning on your device, and your computer, your camera, whatever it may be, you're now remembering Allah subhanaw taala. And so there's a blessing and it's a protection for you and also an act of worship.

01:06:39--> 01:07:12

Another reminder, put a reminder on your phone screensaver Wonderful. So put a wallpaper until you build a habit and trauma. advise others around you and they may remind you wonderful, so create this habit with your loved ones that hey, starting today in sha Allah, let us all start reminding each other to say Bismillah more often you don't even have to just say hey, remember to say just say it out loud. Bismillah every time you do something, say it out loud, your family will hear you they will be reminded as well Inshallah, another advice here print or write out the appropriate draw and hang it up where necessary Absolutely. Subhanallah a lot of children learn these two are in adults

01:07:12--> 01:07:46

as well, simply because they're visual if you hide things or put them away and yes, we have books and we have resources, we have apps, but if they're put away you know, out of sight out of mind, there is a lot less likelihood of following through with it. So print things out or write them and you'll more likely remember them in shallow Tada. So have a visual strategy here. Another advice start with one habit at a time such as always saying Bismillah before you eat and then move on with other actions wonderful, absolutely. Excellent advice is better coffee co May Allah Subhana Allah bless all of you, protect us all and reward us and make us from those whose actions are always

01:07:46--> 01:08:19

connected with a loss of Hannah Montana. Another advice we can add to this is regularly review or learn if you have not yet has no Muslim fortress of the Muslim go through it. And every time you learn a new DUA tell you your family, your spouse, your parents, your children, or if you're living alone remind yourself insha Allah Tala that this is a new DUA I will start to make with this particular activity. So every time you enter the bathroom, you make a new DUA, when you exit, you make this dua, so you're learning these these ethical on these dua from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, some from the Quran as well. And you're utilizing them for different activities throughout

01:08:19--> 01:08:55

the day, and you're protected constantly by Allah subhanaw taala. And therefore, you have nothing to worry about, as someone might ask, okay, bringing our children inside and the prophets was advising or commanding it does this mean that the command is YG? It's an obligation. So if you don't bring your children inside, is it haram? Are you sinful? And the scholars who would respond to this and we can say this is very straightforward. The commands that are mentioned in this hadith are understood as recommendations and strong advice. Why for your own benefit for your own protection? Why would you not take it now, here's an example. Some, some people may live in cities or countries around the

01:08:55--> 01:09:29

world that are considered more dangerous than others. And even if you're not living in a dangerous city, we take measures, for example, a lot of people if not everyone, that I think I know a lot of them. Everyone that I know, as far as I know. Generally speaking, I noticed, you know, whenever you leave their home, they would lock their door, when they would exit their car and park their car, they would lock their cars. Many people for example, on their phones, they have passwords for protection. So if you lock your doors while you're keeping your children inside, because you're aware of let's say the crime rate in your particular city, like you don't leave a three year old

01:09:29--> 01:10:00

outside on monitored. If you're taking that measure, or you're putting an alarm system in your home, or you have some kind of security system in your building, or you have a phone password or a laptop password, then you already have knowledge about some matters, how to be protected in some ways, but when it comes to knowledge about things that we have no access to except from Allah subhanaw taala through His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then we take those recommendations, and we say very obviously that it's very wise and reasonable to follow it and it would not make

01:10:00--> 01:10:38

Any sense not too far away? Is it obligatory? Is it worth it for you to lock your car when you park it? Now most scholars would not say it's a Wajid, but is it highly recommended? Yes 100% Why you don't want your car to be robbed for example. So these are Hadith are not meant to scare anyone or scare you at the time of sunset or bring your children side and, and rush them inside. And like worry. Now this is this. This is like the advice about locking your door locking your car, it's a reminder to protect yourself because prior to this, we had no knowledge prior to the revolution for the profit slice and then we had no knowledge that this is the best thing to do for protection and

01:10:38--> 01:11:21

for safety. So this should not be scaring us. And this brings me to the topic of fear and then the last note here in Sharla. Before we resume with the next area, please remember the following point. If you missed some of what we stated before, please pay attention to the following point. Stories and discussions, classrooms. Halaqaat whatever it may be lectures like this should always emphasize the protection aspect meaning the protection of Allah protection through Quran and vicar and DUA and Iman and salah, and stay away from bad environments and sinfulness in general, rather than scare people or entertain them with horror movies and TV shows and horror books and so on and so forth.

01:11:21--> 01:11:58

The reality is when it comes to these types of movies and entertainment, I follow the opinion. And I don't shy away from saying this that it is prohibited for the overwhelming majority of people, if not all people to be watching these types of movies, why? Movies, TV shows and books and any kind of entertainment that's designed that's made and developed in a way to scare people from certain worldly things is problematic from the Islamic theological paradigm why we're not talking here about fear in general like somebody's like jumping out from behind, behind you and scaring you which by the way is prohibited in Islam. You're not supposed to scare people in general or prank people where

01:11:58--> 01:12:20

you're, they're worried about their livelihood. Rather, this would be prohibited because it goes against the Command of Allah subhanaw taala and actually supports what the devil wants which is what more fear of worldly beings, more fear of the Creation rather than trust in the Creator. Allah subhanaw taala reminds us that the devil, delicate, delicate, delicate

01:12:21--> 01:12:54

how we felt was shaped on it earlier. So the devil followers scares his followers. Now, most Muslims say that this doesn't apply to them because they're not his followers. Allah Subhana Allah has commanded what Fela Taha whom will have only encountered me, so do not fear them, do not have any fear towards them, but fear me if you are true believers, and the reality is when we see the types of movies people are producing and watching and they're afraid of, and they're they're making a big deal out of and they're going viral. The reality is that this is facilitating what the devil wants, in fact that we can say, believe it or not, when you take a step back, and you see the bigger

01:12:54--> 01:13:31

picture, the picture of like fear and the picture of good and evil, you see that a lot of the things that are produced of entertainment, aside from ideologies and doubts and desires, a lot of the entertainment clearly is influenced by the devil. And this is like the devil is of people, the Devils of the shayateen, as well. So these are not surprises to us from the Islamic perspective that they would be prohibited. Because you're not supposed to be going in watching a movie that scares you more rather than putting your trust in Allah subhanaw taala. And relevant to this, and the verse I was quoting earlier, I apologize for not quoting the beginning of it properly, in an identical

01:13:31--> 01:14:06

shape on your phone. We've already barely through this, the shape one wants to scare his followers. And even though we are not talking about Muslims as our idea of the devils, this inclines towards what they want. So may Allah protect us from from falling into this trap? I know and I assume everyone here is in United States, I know that we are desensitized to many of these things. They are very common as a genre as an entire genre and movies and TV shows and books and so on and so forth. But it should not be a form of entertainment, it should not be a form of entertainment. In fact, this is why a lot of Muslims and non Muslims as well have fear of these things. This is why Muslims

01:14:06--> 01:14:44

have a fear of these things. It should not be a source of entertainment to scare people. I'm referring here not to Islamic content, I'm referring here to anything that is made to scare people any kind of horror film on this note on this topic, in general in general should not be something that we encourage. And yes, there are examples like paranormal activity and other movies like this. These are not things that Muslims take as entertainment. Rather, these are these are things that portray the topic in a fearful way. So who does not benefit that does not benefit the Muslim? This is why a lot of Muslims seem to have fear with these topics and discussions. But in reality if your

01:14:44--> 01:15:00

trust isn't Allah subhanaw taala and you're not following the the media and entertainment that shapes how people perceive these matters. You see that you're protected the same way that you don't have an unreasonable or irrational rather unreasonable fear towards like, criminal like, you know, break

01:15:00--> 01:15:37

You need your car. I hope not. That's not something you're worried about cancer, you have an excessive fear about, you're not supposed to have an excessive fear about other things as well. Allah subhanaw taala is your protector and also gives us the means Allah subhanaw taala gives us all that we need to be protected in terms of dealing with the devils in terms of the unseen things that goes back to what Allah Subhana Allah has revealed for us. And Allah subhanaw taala knows best. Again, I'm not I'm not trying to push us away from permissible MOBA entertainment. I'm referring specifically to things that scare people and when you share stories as well, stories, whether it's

01:15:37--> 01:16:10

your experience or the experiences of other people oftentimes Halla art or camps, people are like please share with us stories about this and that and they want horror stories they want to be scared people like the excitement but the reality is you're not supposed to share stories that scare people the way you even frame the story should be to build image should be to make people stronger May Allah protect protect us and protect us from fear of any worldly thing and increases in full trust in Him find out a half Omaha phony in connection with me. If you're a true believers only have fear of Allah subhana meaning recognizing that all power goes back to him and he can protect you if all

01:16:10--> 01:16:43

human beings and all of the jinn and all the animals tried to harm you and Allah was protecting you have nothing to worry about. This is the kind of trust we're supposed to be developing and building in movies entertainment video content, social media posts, rather than scaring people through these types of entertainment well long Tada and, and this is why even in this particular class as some of you may have noticed, when we're talking about this topic or sharing stories, these are not stories that scare people these are stories that shouldn't build our iman and there are many examples like this and I do have a lot of stories to share and perhaps by the end of the Tafseer of the surah

01:16:43--> 01:16:58

inshallah Tada if we have time we'll share some of the stories that build Iman real life experiences that people have that build Eman rather than scare people because there is nothing to fear there is nothing to fear here rather fella to call for him or her phone encounter mean, we follow this command of Allah subhanaw taala.

01:16:59--> 01:17:34

You said earlier for the overwhelming majority of people What did you mean by that? Or did I hear incorrectly? That's a great question. Can you please clarify which part you're referring to in Sharla. Medical offical? I think you're referring to when I was talking about people watching movies and being afraid of certain things. Generally speaking, this type of entertainment I would say is prohibited. Generally speaking, I would say it's prohibited. And here's why many scholars believe that it is prohibited to voluntarily watch something or read something that will scare people may Allah subhanaw taala protect us. So no the general the general factor that I follow here and I don't

01:17:34--> 01:18:05

shy away from expressing this is that it's not permissible for Muslims to be consuming this type of entertainment. Verse number seven, let's move on Inshallah, to and about ecological May. Allah protects us all and keep us amongst those who are constantly referencing him remembering him, along with them, you have nothing to worry about so long as you're connected to Allah subhanaw taala you have nothing to worry about so long as you're connected to Allah subhanaw taala This is why the hustlin of the Muslim the fortress of the Muslim like the book name is referring to the vicar right the one who makes a lot of the kill the Prophet size and describe this is a person is running away

01:18:05--> 01:18:37

from the devils and they run into a fortress, they're safe. So you're making thicket and DUA and you have shields all around you. You can't see these shields, but you know that they're there and that there's a lot of evidence for this, but even empirical in terms of people's experiences in different ways. May Allah bless us all to be amongst as bacterin Allah cathedral with the accurate the believing men and women who are regularly remembering Allah subhanaw taala verse number seven, well, no one will come out on Unto Allah bath, Allahu Allah, and those humans fought just like you and these are the Muslims in talking to the others, that Allah would not resurrect anyone for judgment.

01:18:37--> 01:19:11

There are two meanings for this. The first is that some of the believing some of the jinn also believed as human beings amongst the pagans used to believe that Allah would never bring a messenger would never raise amongst them a messenger. But another meaning we can combine both inshallah is that some of them used to think that there would be no life after death. And we know that some of the pagans of Quraysh used to think this as well. These are two pillars of iman, that you believe in the messenger and you believe and also the day of judgment and an afterlife that you are living forever as a soul in a new body after you're resurrected. But this world is temporary, that there is

01:19:11--> 01:19:47

a day of resurrection, there is an eternal afterlife. So we take both of these and say they are both true. And we can apply both that to there is a messenger for the humans and the noon and also the messenger will inform you about the raising of people as well for the Day of Resurrection. And when we comment on this, it's important to recognize that when we give Dawa there are certain foundational things that benefit people more than others. One of them is the topic of the prophets, Elijah and approves of Prophet and the seal of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and the second is the Day of Judgment, your afterlife, for example, something we can all benefit from Allah reminds

01:19:47--> 01:19:59

us frequently and we referenced this i i usually referenced this on the day of Joomla for the hotword was turned over enough some might have been dematerialized. Like every soul every one of you reflect on what you

01:20:00--> 01:20:31

prepared for your afterlife. Avoid tomorrow is referring to your afterlife. So this is a foundational pillar. Why if you were to reflect on what you prepared for tomorrow, and if you imagine that it was literally tomorrow, February 4, do you think you would prepare a little more? Would you feel satisfied? And would you waste time today with the wrong things? Would you be distracted? If you thought, tomorrow's your last day on earth? Would you waste today? Or would you do something for your afternoon? So believe in the Day of Judgment, your afterlife, as close as as close as tomorrow? In other words, you're going to do something to prepare for it. May Allah

01:20:31--> 01:21:07

subhanaw taala make us amongst those who regularly reflect on it so that we are preparing for it Allah Mami, verse number eight, one la Mesna, summer for dinner, moody at Heron sentia. didn't wash Jojoba. Earlier, we tried to reach the heaven for the News, the news of what what's going to happen, only to find it filled with guards. These are the angels and shooting stars. So some of the gene used to eavesdrop on the heavens and then pass down the information. For example, in one Hadith, some of you have heard of this before, the devils would pile up one of the other supporting one another to the heavens, and then the one at the top from the heavens, they used to be able to hear

01:21:07--> 01:21:44

what was happening, let's say about so and so this is the thing that will happen. So they pass down the news, pass down the news, pass down the news, until the very first person, that person that devil would go to the fortune teller who works with devils and magic and things like this, or fortune tellers. And that person would tell the person who came to them, let's say, a naive human being. And this is forbidden in Islam, of course, a naive human being who goes to them for fortune telling. And they tell them as a prophet Seisen said, they mix the truth that one truth with 99 lies me with a lot of Lies, all lies in general things. And these are known things. When you study this,

01:21:44--> 01:22:14

you see that it's actually a joke, a lot of general things, you're going to find the thing that makes you feel fulfilled. And then a week later, this person finds something fulfilling says, wow, they were they were telling the truth, they knew my future, you're going to feel confident with a moment of, let's say, opportunity. This person faces some opportunity during the week, which is a very general thing, say, Wow, that person really knew the future. Now a lot of the things that they say are lies, one of these things might be true, might be or some fortune tellers or not even real fortune tellers. Maybe they don't even have that one truth from the devil's so in this case, that

01:22:14--> 01:22:51

one truth when it happens, the naive, foolish person thinks Wow, this person really knows the future. May Allah protect us now we know as Muslims that it is prohibited in Islam. It is a according some scholars, it could be a Nullifier of faith depending on what happens with the specifics for a person to go to a fortune teller even as a joke. Now this practice came to an end why once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given Revelation where he started the messenger key what happened here? Now there's a barrier placed in the heavens and there's a shooting stars and the angels were guarding so the devils can no longer hear. Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu reports that she

01:22:51--> 01:23:27

heard the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam say, angels descend down into the clouds and mentioned the affairs decreed in the habit and the Shire clean the devil steal this information and news and they deliver them to the soothsayers or fortune tellers, and then they add 100 lies to it from their side from their basically own side, they make up things. Now this was to protect the revelation from attack by the devils because the revelation is coming down also with gibellini Sinha. And this is how the truth should be protected by the believers against the Devils of the humans. So the Quran as it's being revealed to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam it's being protected by the angels.

01:23:27--> 01:24:05

It's being protected, meaning the devils cannot ever interfere with or intercept or meddle with the signal Allah subhanaw taala that's guarded by angels that cannot meddle with it. A reminder for us is that as the revelation was protected from the devils themselves, we say this is how the truth this is how Islam This is how morality should be protected by us by believers against the Devils of the humans as well, that you are protecting the truth by speaking the truth acting upon it, not sugarcoating it, not hiding it. Can you imagine brothers and sisters, if tomorrow, all 2 billion Muslims in the world hid their Islam, and no longer spoke about Islam no longer addresses them hid

01:24:05--> 01:24:43

their appearance as Muslims hid their hijab, shave their beards, whatever it is, they hid any appearance of Islam any soon as well, any prayer, anything external, they completely hit it out of fear out of shame, guilt, embarrassment, inferiority complex, what would happen to the world in terms of the spread of falsehood, in terms of false ideologies, we are supposed to be protecting the truth, knowing the truth, studying the truth, seeking knowledge of the truth, so that we can express it so that we are confident in it. This is the thing we should be spending time on. This is why we're here. And so yes, ultimately, this world of dunya it's a conflict between good and evil it is

01:24:43--> 01:25:00

a conflict between truth and falsehood and truth will always win. apologia al Harper was called buckling in bow cleaner chain as a whole was progresses the truth has arrived. And falsehood has perished indeed falsehood by its very nature is bound to always perish. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst those who protect and facility

01:25:00--> 01:25:37

propagate the truth within our families or communities amongst our colleagues amongst our employees, our classmates online and offline in every capacity of being that we spread more of this truth and goodness in the world, rather than be quiet or silent and allow the facilitation of falsehood, among them. Number nine, we're in Corona, Corona minha Makara, then some familiar stimuli and Anna Yojana who she harbor Masada. They said that the Muslims and we used to take up positions there in the heavens for eavesdropping, but whoever dares to eavesdrop now will find a flare or a fire lying in wait for them they will be like punished and hurt really bad. So they used to search out what would

01:25:37--> 01:26:13

happen and listen to certain things and now they cannot. So now they are what traveling around the Earth trying to find out. Why can we no longer here? Why is there suddenly a barrier that's placed in which we can no longer access? Now there's security but there's never been for example, there has not been the security for a long time. And this is why verse number 10 will give us some clarification about the situation we're in Natalie, Sharon reader beam and phenom and Rhonda V him Rob boom Rashida. Now we have they are saying now we have no clue whether evil is intended for those on earth or their Lord intends for them what is right what is good Russia pay attention to the

01:26:13--> 01:26:50

context here. This shows that such extra ordinary measures were adopted in the havens only on two kinds of occasions, as far as we know, number one, when Allah might decide to inflict the dwellers of the earth with something that they deserve with a specific nation or tribe, and the Divine Will might be that it that before it was actually inflicted, the gene would find out about it. So they will not be able in this case to convey its news to warn their let's say Devils of the human beings to warn their co founder disbelievers they could not warn them why because Allah would play such a strict security measure at that time. So the angels will be guarding they haven't. The second

01:26:50--> 01:27:24

occasion, keep this in mind is that Allah subhanaw taala. In this case, we would say might appoint a messenger on the earth for a specific time or place, the messengers of the past until Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and strict security security measures would be adopted so that neither the message is being conveyed to human beings would be interfered with meaning as the revelation is going down to any of the prophets or messengers, the devils cannot interfere with it or access it or see it. And they would not be able to know beforehand which What instructions were being given to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam any of the messengers before that as well. So in other

01:27:24--> 01:28:01

words, what is the Muslim Jin saying over here, that when we noticed that strict security measures were adopted in the heavens for the safeguard of certain news, the meteorites were being showered profusely upon us, we wanted to know which of the two things had happened which of the following to number one, whether Allah had caused a torment or punishment to descend subtly on some people of the earth for their disbelief, or number two, or a messenger had been chosen, raised somewhere on the earth? And in this case, what was it? In this case, it was the latter. In this case, it was a messenger. So what happened here we were on the lookout, they are saying, for the same thing when we

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

heard the wonderful revelation which guides people to the right path. And we came to know what that Allah was not sending down a punishment for a specific people or upon the earth, but rather he raised from amongst the human beings and messenger to show people the right way to show people the right path. Notice here as well, that the word that's being used, I'd rather be him Rob boom, Russia, where do you remember seeing Russia, a form of Russia that earlier in the Surah were rushed yesterday in a rush so in guide to that which is true that which is going to give you true success, may Allah Subhana Allah stick concert connect to the Quran, so I got to link this i in terms of the

01:28:38--> 01:29:16

word, but I'll show them to the very first word. Now what's also being emphasized here, notice the etiquette, they are saying, We do not know if this situation, this matter that's occurring in the sky that the barrier that's being placed, if this is intended for those who are on the earth, or if their Lord intends guidance for them. Look at the phrasing of the word Wonderland as a chaperone, is there suffering or evil torment that's desired or intended for some people on the earth, they are not associating the suffering or the torment that's coming to them to ALLAH SubhanA. They're not associated directly to him. This is adequate in terms of attributing only good to Allah subhanaw

01:29:16--> 01:29:51

taala. And there's an authentic hadith and we follow this as well, when we say the DUA was shot with laser Illich. Evil is never attributed to you, Oh Allah, Allah Subhan. Allah does not create absolute evil, this is important for us to keep in mind. Now this is it used to be that for example, shooting stars on some cases, of course, occurred before this, however, it did not happen much. It happened occasionally. Now it's happening a lot. So they know there is a messenger chosen amongst the human beings, especially when they heard the Quran being recited by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Does this mean that every shooting star that we see is a result of this or not

01:29:51--> 01:30:00

necessarily? The short answer is we don't know. But the more likely thing and many scholars have stated this is it's not necessary that every single shooting star is an exam
