Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

sweetie Karim Allah Bharath for the below him in a shape line of hygiene Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim furbish Riley a solidity aware Sidley Emery Tata melissani, Babu Kohli have been in seminarian.

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

So with regards to event we'll go to we learned about how part of belief in the books is respecting them, giving them the due respect. And what is included in respecting the books, just handling them with respect or is there more to that?

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

knowing them implementing them? What else is part of respecting the book?

00:00:47--> 00:00:58

that the purpose for which Allah soprano Darla sent the book it is fulfilled? Correct? Like just now you decided what an attorney will call

00:00:59--> 00:01:43

and that I also recite the Quran. This is one of the reasons why Allah soprano data revealed the Book so that it is recited. So part of respecting the book is reciting the book also. And learning it, understanding it, implementing it, basically fulfilling the rights of the book, giving the rights and the opposite of that is abandoning the book and we learned about the different ways in which the book is abandoned. And here, we need to look at the people of the past meeting the previous nations. How is it that they dealt with their scriptures? Because we learned that the scriptures they were given either they were lost or they were forgotten? Or they did not benefit

00:01:43--> 00:02:00

from them? And essentially, because they did not benefit from the scriptures, this is a reason why they change them. They lost them. Right? They miss interpreted them. So a lesson to be taken from the people of the past because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam warned us that you will follow their ways.

00:02:01--> 00:02:04

In the Quran, we learned about the

00:02:05--> 00:02:22

Gita, the People of the Book, the hood and then a Sora insert of Juma is number five Allah says methadone Medina, Camila Terada, some Mullah Mohammed who have the example of those people who were made to carry the book, but they didn't actually carry it properly committed in

00:02:23--> 00:02:37

their example is like that of donkeys. Yeah, me Lewis fella that is carrying books, lots of books, heavy books on the donkey. But does the donkey have any idea but what he's carrying?

00:02:38--> 00:02:57

He doesn't have any idea? Can he benefit from those books? Not at all. They're no different than rocks, right to the donkey, it doesn't make any difference, whether he's carrying rocks, or he's carrying books, whether he's carrying garbage, or he's carrying gold, it doesn't make any difference to the donkey.

00:02:58--> 00:03:30

Likewise, there are people who have the book, but they don't benefit from it even a little bit. And when they don't benefit from it, then the book is more like a burden on them just another thing that they're carrying just another thing that they're reading, that they're spending their time with. They could have been spending their time with something else. But they're just spending their time with the book. And they're not actually benefiting from the book, unless has been submitted will culminate in a cut that will be at in Alma who they will come up to me What a bad example,

00:03:32--> 00:03:51

that a human being someone who has been given knowledge is called a donkey. Why? Because he does not benefit from that knowledge. So here we need to really check ourselves every single day that while we are memorizing the Quran, we are learning the meaning of the Quran, is it actually benefiting us? Or is it just a burden?

00:03:52--> 00:04:21

Like for example, if you have a lot of clothes, and they're just hanging, and you don't wear them, then what are they just a burden? If you have a lot of things and you're not using them, then what are they just a burden. So the Quran was sent in order to be benefited from in what way that it is understood, it is learnt, it is recited it is practiced it is put into action. And when a person does not do that, then he's just carrying a burden on himself.

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

In a decent Buhari we learn the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the metaphor the example of the Muslims, the Jews and the Christians is that of a man who hire some people to work for him until nightfall. So they work until the midday and they say we do not need a wage from you. So the first group of people, what do they do? They work until midday and they said that's it. You know, we're too bored of it. We're tired, and we don't want any wage from you either. So they stopped completely. So he hired some other people that do the work for me. So he says finish off the rest of the day and you will receive what I stipulated

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

But what happens, they work until the time of our suffering. And they say, you can have whatever we have done, meaning we don't want to be paid for it. And we don't want to work for you anymore. So they give up. So what happens, we hire some other people, a third group of people, and they work the rest of the day from us until sunset, and they get all the pain of the first two groups. So the first group is the example of the hood. And the second group is example of the Christians. And the third group is example of the Muslims. The first two groups, what did they do? They didn't complete? What was asked of them. Right? What did they do? They gave up, Allah gave them the book. They didn't

00:05:42--> 00:06:24

bother to implement it anymore. They didn't bother to learn it anymore, pass it down properly. Likewise, they didn't implement it, they gave up. And this is when they started changing the books. This is when the trip began. This is when Miss yen began. So what happened? Allah subhanaw taala sent the Muslim he sent the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and then what happened? Allah Himself took the responsibility of preserving the book. But what makes this oma different from the previous oma is that they must benefit from the book. So here we need to check ourselves. Are we benefiting from the book? Or are we giving up in another Hadees which is in Muslim, a winner and Ziad even lobby? He

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

reported that once the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam mentioned something, and said, that that will be when knowledge will be wasted, when this will happen, when knowledge will be wasted. So the he said, we said O Messenger of Allah, we read the Quran, and we teach it to our children, and they will teach their children and this will continue until the day of judgment. So how will knowledge be wasted? The prophets of Allah Salim said or even on Naveed, may your mother cry over you. I thought you were of the intelligent folks of Medina did the Jews and Christians not recited and in June? Do they not recite it? Yes, they do undecided? Do they not study it? Of course they do. So what

00:07:07--> 00:07:23

happened? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said actually these people do not benefit even in the least from the teachings present in their books. They don't benefit from them even a little bit. They have the books, they read them, but they don't benefit them.

00:07:24--> 00:08:12

And again, we need to check ourselves. When we study the meanings we go deep into the meanings of the words linguistic analysis, you know, using different hobbies and different studies to understand the vs. What's the purpose? Is it just a mental exercise? is it just an intellectual exercise? What's the objective? What's the objective, implementing it, benefiting from it? And if we don't benefit from the book, then this is when knowledge will be wasted. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in Ebony is la isla Cata buki tava factor baru, what terracotta era that the Bani Israel What did they do, they wrote a book themselves, and they began following it, their own writings, their

00:08:12--> 00:08:24

own opinions, their own thinking, their own understanding, they wrote it up as if it was the book of Allah, and they began following it. And when they began following that, then what happened, they abandoned the Torah.

00:08:26--> 00:09:11

So likewise, if we have the Quran, but we abandon that, and we start following other things, we start making up other things in the religion, then, this is a way of neglecting the book, abandoning the book waste in the book, and this is where the warning against innovation comes. So part of believing in the books is avoiding innovation, innovation in the matters of religion without because remember, that bidder is in direct competition with the teachings of the messenger All right, the messenger brought teachings, right? And whatever he conveyed was from who, unless of having done and if people abandon that, and they start following other things, then what are they doing,

00:09:12--> 00:09:39

disrespecting the book not fulfilling the purpose of the book, we see this unfortunately, that there are people who will, you know, learn about different matters, but many of those methods are based on weak notions or mainly innovation. And they get so focused on that, that they neglect what is the main purpose, they neglect what they should actually be doing, what they should actually be focusing on.

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

So this is the reason why better must be avoided in order to correctly believe in the book, and in order to correctly follow the book and Alhamdulillah you have studied the matter of the door in detail earlier, but a few reminders and I didn't even measure the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Whoever innovates something in this matter of hours.

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

That is not part of it will have it rejected.

00:10:03--> 00:10:42

Like wasn't I didn't have Buddha would be aware of newly invented measures. For every invented measure is an innovation and every innovation is misguidance and every misguidance is in the fire in another Hadith and Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said follow and do not innovate, for indeed you have been sufficed, meaning whatever you needed to know, you've been informed about it. So you don't need to leave the Quran, leave the Sunnah and make something else up yourself and begin to follow that anything necessary that you needed to know the prophets are a lot of them conveyed it. So you have been sufficed and every innovation is misguidance. So in conclusion, what are the

00:10:42--> 00:10:48

effects of m&a? What's the benefit of believing in the books of the last panel data?

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

What are the effects what are the benefits?

00:10:52--> 00:11:39

believing in the books means that you will now have knowledge knowledge, tribal knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala has. So, when you believe in the books only then you will know what Allah soprano data requires. So, only then action can come only then obedience can come. So believe in the books leads to obedience, all right, because remember that if you want to do anything, first you have to know about it. Correct. And that knowledge you have to take from somewhere it cannot just pop up in your head. So likewise, in order to know what Allah subhanaw taala wants from us, why He created us, why he sent us here, what he wants from us, what is necessary knowledge, which knowledge, the

00:11:39--> 00:11:50

knowledge that he sent. So believe in the books leads to correct, he they have rushed, which leads to correct action. What else?

00:11:51--> 00:11:56

Okay, so the question is that, what's the benefit of believing in the book?

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

That's the right of the book.

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

Good. Mashallah. So we see that books they give us a right is the source of action. And it's also the source of correct aqidah.

00:12:12--> 00:12:25

You understand? So the books, they tell us what to do? And obviously for us, what is that the Quran, it tells us what we should do. And it also tells us what we should believe in. Remember, at the beginning, we learned about the importance of

00:12:26--> 00:13:08

the how we need to have or either because otherwise, you have so many questions in your head that will remain unanswered. Why are you here? What's my purpose? Who made me? What are his attributes? Right? Where am I going? What's going to happen after I read? So the collector can go also where does that come from? From the book that Allah subhanaw taala has sent, that this is a source of getting reward in the hereafter. Correct? Amen. Correct. aqeedah and inshallah, in the Hereafter, the actions are worth something that a man will gives us motivation, motivation to act on what Allah subhanaw taala has asked us to do, because many of us many people, if you think about Muslims, do

00:13:08--> 00:13:53

they not know they have to pray? Do they not know they should speak the truth? Right? Do they not know that one day they will be resurrected? Yes, we believe in all of these things. But when you have the correct kind of Eman, strong faith in Kaaba law, when you love it, when you respect it, when you read it, then what happens? you're motivated to act. Very true. It allows us to build a connection with our Lord, because the Quran is kalamalka. And remember that Hadees that you can never return to Allah you can never attain closeness to Allah, by anything except for that which has come from him. The Quran came from him. So you want to go close to Allah. Hold on to the Quran,

00:13:53--> 00:14:37

learn the Quran recited, memorize it. Belief in the quarter, gives us a cleaner the correct acleda but it also develops your clean certainty. It makes a person able to distinguish between truth and falsehood right and wrong, not just in religious matters, but even otherwise, when a person believes in the kicap then when he will recite it when he'll memorize it. When you understand it. This will be a source of increasing his email in general. It's his message. This is why somebody says that when I wish to speak to Allah, then I pray and when I wish to listen to what Allah has to say then I recite the Quran. In total 92 Allah subhanaw taala says we'll have that key taboo ends in this book,

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

meaning the Quran we have sent it has come from Allah, it is Mubarak full of blessings. Muslim the one that confirms what Allah The beignet a day he that which came before it, meaning all the previous scriptures. Why has it come when he turned their own Malcorra woman Hala has so that you can warn the people of the mother of the town

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

Meaning Makkah and also those who are rounded mean for all people the Quran is a warning. Well, Alina, you may know Neville ferati, you may know nappy and those who believe in the hereafter. They believe in the book. Those who have a purpose in life meaning they know that they will be resurrected one day, they will be compensated for what they're doing. They will believe in the scripture as they must believe. We're Homer, Allah sloty him, you have a loon and they're the ones who also guard their prayers. So believe in the book leads to correct action also, for whom Allah sadati him, you have your loan. So with this we conclude a man will cut up and inshallah we'll begin

00:15:41--> 00:15:44

amen Bill Russell. Eman will also

00:15:45--> 00:15:59

believe in the messengers. Is this a part of amen? Yes, this is a part of Amen. Because part of Eman is to believe in Allah subhana wa Tada, His angels, his books,

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

how do you learn about Allah, His angels, his books from who? From the messengers. So we see that belief in the Rasul is like, the source of belief in other fillers of a man in the Quran sort of dakara i a 285. cologne Amma biLlahi woman a kata he were called to be.

00:16:26--> 00:17:15

They all believe in Allah, His angels, his books and his messengers. So belief in the messengers is a part of a man in a hadith and Muslim, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, He who says, There is no god worthy of worship, but Allah, He is one and there is no partner with him, that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his servant and His messenger that irisa is a servant of Allah, and the son of his bondwoman, meaning Malian. And his word, which he directed to Miriam and the soul created at a command from Allah. That Paradise is a fact and Hell is a fact. Whoever says this, then Allah who would make him enter Jannah through any of its eight doors, which he would

00:17:15--> 00:18:00

like. Amen. Bill Russell, two messengers are mentioned over here. Muhammad said a lot of sediment Aris RNA center, but what does this how these show to us that man Bill Russell is a major part of faith without it, Eman is incomplete. And it's necessary that we believe in the prophet who was sent to us whom we follow Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and also the prophets that came before him recently salah and all others that came before him, because only then he man can be complete. And when a man is complete, only then a person can enter Jannah now the question is we believe in the messengers, but who are the messengers? Who are the messengers? First of all, let's look at the linguistic

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

meaning of the word of Busan. Is there any other word that comes in the Quran and the Sunnah for the messengers of Allah for the prophets of Allah nebby Rasool and nabee both come. So the word Rasool Rasool ferule.

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

You understand that okay.

00:18:21--> 00:19:07

So for all it actually gives a meaning of motorcycle or soul gives the meaning of motorcycle, who is motorcycle? One who has been sent? So a soul means one who has been sent it is for all Minar reseller risala. What is the dishonor message? So basically, the soul is one who has been sent with the decider with a message. When you send someone with a message, what's the purpose that they go and convey it? Right? Likewise, sometimes other messages are such that they have to go and perform them execute them, which is why in the Quran we see that the word rustle is used for angels. And it's also used for the human messengers that Allah subhana wa tada sent. Why angels because the

00:19:07--> 00:19:33

angels like for example, jabril What did he bring messages to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, right? And likewise, we see that at other occasions, it wasn't just jabril who came, but there were other angels also that came along with him in order to deliver him parts of the Quran. Right? And we see that the angels are also called Russell for another reason, because they receive messages from Allah and they carry them out.

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

They carry them out. Correct. they execute them the commands of their Lord. So Rasool when we're talking about a prophet of Allah, and Russell is who the one who has been sent with a message to deliver to who to deliver to the people, a message from Allah, to deliver to the people. Is that necessary, of course.

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

Why is it that a lot of panels are selected some people as messengers, could he not have sent the message to every single individual,

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

every single individual,

00:20:11--> 00:20:18

he could have sent it, because this is what the machine also demanded, right? That each one of them wants that he is given

00:20:19--> 00:20:31

that he is given scriptures that the message is given to him directly. But we see that being given this message is an honor. And everyone does not deserve that.

00:20:32--> 00:21:05

Everyone does not deserve that. So this is the reason why Allah subhanaw taala selected some people, some individuals from different communities, and he gave them the message that they would deliver. And remember that the responsibility of the messenger was not just to convey, it was also to lead people in different ways. So if every single person is given a message, then he would want to lead everybody. And that's not possible. Then another word that is used for the prophets of Allah is nebby.

00:21:06--> 00:21:16

Usually, or a soul is translated as messenger, and NaVi is translated as prophet. Now Nabhi is actually in the structure of an OB

00:21:17--> 00:21:56

for Al. Okay. And it gives the meaning of First of all, most fish and secondly, are of Europa. Because depending on what the root is Nabhi can be from the route noon bear, Hamza Nava, what does that mean? important news. So Nabil is one who gives number one who gives important news. So who is he most Bish meaning one who makes the other aware, one who informs one who delivers the important news. So the prophets of Allah, they made people aware of who

00:21:58--> 00:22:45

Allah subhanaw taala the purpose of their lives of what they were supposed to do, of the Sharia that they were supposed to observe. So Nabil gives a meaning of Mohammed, and the word Nabhi, is also from the root noon bear. Well, from the word Nebula, and Nebula is a high place. So Nabil is someone who is referral partner, meaning the one who is of a great status. And if you think about it from among all human beings, whose status is the greatest, the prophets of Allah. All right, not someone who's very wealthy, not someone who is very strong in his physical, you know, body. Likewise, not someone who is very beautiful, but whose status is the highest among the human beings, the prophets,

00:22:45--> 00:23:25

the messengers of Allah subhanaw taala. So this is why you're in contact. So you understand the word nibi comes from Nevada, or Nevada, if you take number it gives a meaning of Muhammad, if number then it gives the meaning of a pharaoh. Now, we hear these words, a lot, Russell nebby in the Quran, also, both of them come. So the question is, is there any difference between Russell and NaVi or does it mean the same thing? Is there any difference? This is a matter of great debate amongst the scholars. And we see that in the Quran, clearly a distinction has been made between the word loss rule and Nabhi. Because if there was no difference than one word would have been sufficient. So for

00:23:25--> 00:24:09

example, instead of to hedge a 52 Wheeler and one out of a sudden lemon public and little Assouline well, and Avi Illa, that we have not said before you any loss rule nor any profit, except that such and such happened. Now, if rasuna never meant the same thing, then only one word would have been used. All right. So the fact that neither messenger nor Prophet, except that such happened shows that Russell and NaVi, there's got to be some difference between them. Now, what are those differences? There are many, many opinions concerning this matter. And this is not a place where we need to go into this discussion. If you'd like to read more on this, there's a book, the messengers

00:24:09--> 00:24:48

and the messages by remote Alaska. inshallah, we'll send you a PDF, but the book is also available in the library. So I recommend that you read up on this. But anyway, even taymiyah, he said concerning this, that the correct position concerning this matter is that of a soul is He who was sent to a disbelieving nation. Like for example, no holiday Salah he was sent to a people who were deep in shock, deep an adult idolatry and in NaVi is He who is sent to a believing people with the same law as that of the Russell before him. So nebby is not someone who brings a new shirt era, but rather he is sent after it will soon.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

Alright, and what is he going to do? He's going to remind the people of the law that are assumed before him brought which is why the Navy is must bear

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

makes people aware of what they have forgotten of what they were supposed to do. So he teaches them and judges between them. As a lot the exalted has said, Indeed we sent the Torah in which was guidance and light. Who was given the total Mozart? Mozart lesson and brought the new Sharia, Torah? The prophets who had submitted to Allah judged by it for the Jews. So that means that the prophets of Bani Israel are evil. Okay, we're Who? Those who were not given a new Sharia.

00:25:36--> 00:26:19

What were they sent with? The message to basically remind the bunny is what you write, teach them the Torah, reinforce the Torah. So you understand that our soul is someone who was sent to a disbelieving nation, he brings a new shirt era. And a Navy is someone who said after Russell to reinforce the same [???]tier and this is what we learned from the Quran also. He said to the prophets of any Israelite you judge according to the Torah which Allah revealed upon Messiah listener. And as for his statement, the Exalted and the seal of the Nabina Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was called hartono been the seal of the prophets. Allah did not say the seal of the mursaleen Why? Because the

00:26:19--> 00:27:06

end of the Salah does not necessitate the end of Nobu, because after a lawsuit can become Yes, like for example, masala Islam was also after him, many prophets came. Why to reinforce the dollar to remind the people of the dollar but the end of Nobunaga necessitates the end of rissalah. In other words, if the profits of artisan has been described as hardened would have been, that means that after him there will be no new [???]tier and there will be no profit meaning no man who will receive revelation from Allah. Do we enforce the Quran to teach people the Quran? After Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam no Rasul, no prophet, so when Allah subhanaw taala says Mahatma never been what does that

00:27:06--> 00:27:25

show that there is a slight difference between the bn lasu and this is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said there is no nebby after me and he did not say there is no rhassoul after me. So it is known that there is no soul nor an AVI after him rather he is a seal of all the prophets and messengers, mail us peace and blessings be upon them.

00:27:26--> 00:28:00

Now there are some other differences also. And remember that there might be some other evidences from the Quran from which we learned that the word of the soul is also used for a prophet who did not bring a new Sharia. Okay, or we see that the term is interchangeable basically. All right, the words are interchangeable for soul and nubby. Sometimes the Prophet is called a soul enemy. Sometimes he's only called a soul. Other times it's only called Navy. So we see that the words are interchangeable. But we see that this is one of the differences.

00:28:01--> 00:28:36

Now, who were the messengers? Were the human beings were the angels. Were there some other creation of Allah subhanaw taala? Who were they? from the Quran and Sunnah? What do we learn about the messengers, but they were all human beings, they were not angels. They were not jinn. Allah subhanaw taala sent human messengers, and he sent men as messengers as prophets and messengers, not women. So first of all human beings and secondly, men, instead of the use of I 109 women or sending them in public illa regionalen knew he lay him

00:28:37--> 00:29:21

that before you we only sent men as messengers. So before Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam who came as prophets and messengers, women, no men, and it was only men. But what about the few women who are mentioned in the Quran about when we learned that what he was done? Like, for example, the mother of musar, insulin, oh hanaa, either Mimosa? Does that mean that she received profit it? No. Because remember that the word way over there is used in its literal sense, that Allah subhanaw taala inspired the mother of musette, meaning in her heart, he put that thought, he guided her that this is what she should do. And Allah subhanaw taala can do that with any of his creation, right?

00:29:21--> 00:29:48

likewise for the honeybee, the word where he has been used. So just because the word ye has been used doesn't mean that the recipient of that what he is a prophet, because there are clear evidences in the Quran that show that the prophets have a lower all men in sort of Allah in one eye 164 is by the Fijian rasulillah men and forcing him he sent a messenger from among themselves. What does it mean that the messenger was a human being? Not an angel?

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

Not a different creation, a human being just like other human beings are. Likewise in the Quran we learn about various prophets. Wait, I did a Hong Kong Buddha there, brother

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

What does it show their brother meaning he was one of them a human being? Well, he left a mother a home suddenly what a llama Deanna, uh, haha, sure Eva.

00:30:11--> 00:30:33

So when a prophet was a brother of his nation, that means that he was a human being. Then we learned that the prophets were given rissalah they were given risala, because no one can attain risala. Because risala is a divine gift, it is why Be it is gifted, it is granted

00:30:34--> 00:31:03

any other position, any other rank. In this world, if a person's tribes, he can attain it. Right? He can strive, you know, with his piety, with his knowledge, with his effort, his worship, whatever it may be, and he can eventually attain that level. But no person can say, I want to become a prophet. So this is why I'm going too fast for 60 days in a row.

00:31:04--> 00:31:24

Or that I am going to do this and I'm going to do that, no matter what a person does, he is not going to be given Prophethood unless Allah once and after Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam No chance. So what do we learn that risala is a gift, it cannot be attained, it cannot be achieved.

00:31:26--> 00:31:57

In total Hajj is 75. Allah who Yes, fluffy, Allah chooses middle Malaika to Sudan woman, a nurse, he chooses, he selects, he decides it is his decision. No one can strive to attain it. Allah subhanaw taala gives Prophethood to whomsoever He wants. All right. Because people might say unlike the machine used to say that how come Prophethood was not given to one of the two great men

00:31:59--> 00:32:44

that these two men there are wealthy, they're powerful, they're knowledgeable, how come Prophethood was not given to them? Because Allah decides Allahu Allah mo hydrea Gerardo de Salud. Allah is most known as to where you should place his message. So total anon Ayah 124. So first of all, we learned that it's a gift, nobody can attain that. Secondly, a lot chooses. No person can, you know, change a lot of decision or affected in any way. If Allah decides to someone should be a prophet, that will happen. And if Allah decides that someone should not be a prophet, then that will happen, that person can never become a prophet. Because we see that there were people who said that had doesn't

00:32:44--> 00:33:35

equal b, and A, B, that my heart related to me from my Lord, meaning my lord inspired me, okay, that because of my piety, and my worship, that God speaks to me. But the thing is that that is not true. Because only Allah decides who to the prophet who do. And after Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, there is no chance. Now with regards to the messengers, how many were they? How many prophets how many messengers did Allah subhanaw taala send their numbers? In a hadith which is authenticated by Giovanni the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Adam was a prophet who was spoken to directly by Allah soprano Turner. So Adam alayhis salaam was a newbie, and there were between him and new alayhis

00:33:35--> 00:34:23

salaam 10 centuries know how to sell them was a lesson. Why? Because at the time of other medicine, everybody was Muslim, new hotness, and when he was sent, the people had become mushnik. So you understand the difference between a B and listen, so listen to a non believing people. So between Adam and no, there were 10 centuries. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the messengers of Allah, were 315 in number, meaning in general, how many messengers did Allah send 315 this is not referring to the time between Adam and new. Okay, so don't misunderstand this. This is referring to the messengers in general. The first part of the Hadees basically tells us the long time between

00:34:23--> 00:34:59

Adam and Noah, and imagine the long time between new hires Solomon, Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, how many nations how many generations past? How many messengers did he send in total? 315 there is another report, but its authenticity is disputed, in which we learned that Allah sent 124,000 prophets and messengers 124,000 prophets and messengers, but for sure how many listen? 315 now in the Quran, we learn about 25 of them 25 of the prophets and messengers we learn from the Quran.

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

And the chart has been given over here. The first of them are the money center. Then after him Idris is lm the new Harley salon from among the descendants of new hydrosol came good earliest and I'm sorry honey salon. Ibrahim Alison Ibrahim are the slums nephew was loot on insulin from the descendants of Abraham really Sam Kim is married his help from the descendants of his Huck early Sam came the profits of Bani Israel, the last of whom was recited sooner, but we also see that from the descendants of Ibrahim Renison I was sure I release in a meeting not direct son, but he came later. Likewise, from his Marina Listen, I'm came Who? Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So these 25

00:35:45--> 00:36:02

prophets and messengers we learned from were from the Quran. There are some other also that we learn from the Sunnah. Like for example, sheath or the center, we learn about him from the Sunnah, from the Hadith, and we learned that he came at some time between either Melissa lamb and no,

00:36:04--> 00:36:46

some said that he was actually Adamson and Adam alayhis salam at his death gave him the responsibility to lead people, meaning in the sense of guiding them, instructing them in the matters of their religion. It is also said that sheath or listening was given where he and Allah subhanaw taala, gave him 50, Zuber 50 Chronicles, then there are some other righteous people about whom we learned from the Quran, like, for example, will coordinate, for example, how to, or for instance, the nation of two bar is mentioned. But we don't know if their profits name was the bar, or some other profit was mentioned. Because based on those verses, some people said to bar was also one of

00:36:46--> 00:37:23

the profits, but there's no evidence for that. So remember, that it is better not to make any definite statement concerning these individuals or people they'll call 900. We don't know if there were profits or not, but definitely we know that they were righteous men. Likewise, one rule Remember that no one can be said to be a prophet without evidence. So for instance, there are many righteous people, or perhaps even prophets who we learn about from the Bible, for example, but you don't find any mention of theirs in the Quran and Sunnah. So do we say that there are prophets?

00:37:24--> 00:38:05

Or do we say that there are nonprofits? What have we been taught concerning these matters, that we should remain silent? We don't affirm them. We don't deny them we just adopt silence concerning these matters. Likewise, in the Quran, look, nine is mentioned when attina lachemann that Allah subhanaw taala gave to look man, Hickman wisdom, right, but prophet who does not mention over there? So do we say that he was a prophet? No, we don't say that he was a prophet. So remember that those that are mentioned in the Quran, Sunnah clearly. We believe in them as prophets of Allah, those about whom there is no solid evidence, it is better that we remain silent concerning him. One more

00:38:05--> 00:38:32

profit. I forgot to mention to you, you should even noon. All right, it is said that he was also a prophet in Muslim Dharma we learned that the sun was prevented from setting when he advanced towards way to knock this when he was leading the Bani Israel. And according to many scholars, he was in fact, a prophet of Allah. Now, all of these prophets, are you familiar with them? Do you know about their stories? Or you know, a little bit about them vaguely?

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

Is it necessary to know about the prophets of Allah partcular Amen. Right.

00:38:39--> 00:38:56

role models for us, people who were a source of guidance for others. So should we learn about them or no? So for that, I advise you that she has Mufti menk. His lectures on the stories of the prophets are available for free online. Please listen to them.

00:38:58--> 00:39:37

Alright, set a target for yourself. One profit a week. Okay, review, learn, listen. And it's one of the best ways of sharing this knowledge with your family members also displayed in your house and let your children are your siblings or your spouse listen along. And inshallah they will also learn a lot. In Sharla. I recommended the weekend students to start listening to them and handle on many of them started listening to these lectures. And every now and then somebody or the other comes up to me and tells me about what they've learned, or how they've shared with their family also, because stories, right, everybody's interested in stories, and especially if the dialogue narrating is

00:39:37--> 00:40:00

amazing, then it's even more captivating. Now, Allah subhanaw taala sent the prophets and the messengers and he sent so many of them. Why? What was the purpose? What was the reason? People kept going astray? Because Satan is enemy, right? And he goes after each and every person, Allah subhanaw taala has created people as our

00:40:00--> 00:40:47

Don't ever correct on fidra. But what happens, Shea upon comes after them and he leads them astray as individuals and also as communities. Think about the people of New Harley Sela where they're not the descendants of Adam are the center. Of course there were. So what happened and how can they started doing she because she came to them and said that you should make pictures of these righteous men so you don't forget them. And then from the pictures that went on to worshipping them, so the people kept going astray. So Allah subhanaw taala sent messengers in order to remind people in order to guide people into the Messiah, 165 roussillon, MOBA sharena amanzi those who brought good news

00:40:47--> 00:41:31

and also warning, good news agenda or reward, if they believed and obeyed if they fulfill the purpose of their lives and warning of punishment. Right, Li Li akuna lanessa and Allahu jetton by the listen to that the people would have no argument against Allah, especially after the messengers are sent, that on the Day of Judgment, no person can say oh, I never knew because first of all, Allah subhanaw taala created the people on fifth row. And secondly when they forgot what happened, Allah sent messengers in fulfillment of Allah subhanaw taala this promise of sending guidance, Allah subhanaw taala sent the prophets remember that Adam or his son when he was sent to the earth, but it

00:41:31--> 00:41:46

Alessi that when guidance comes to me for in my dn knuckle mini houda right from a wr who there for the whole for RNA him whenever Allah promised to send guidance. So that guidance was brought by who

00:41:48--> 00:42:37

it was brought by who? The prophets and the messengers, all right. Likewise, Instituto Hadid is 25 la casa de novo Solana Bella Hina. Wenzel, Mr. Herman kita, while meezan Leah Coleman NASA bill passed in order to establish justice between people. So the prophets were sent in order to guide give good news, warn, and also to manage or regulate the worldly affairs of the people. Which is why we see the wood early Samson, a man and a Sunnah. What happened. There were many cases disputes that were brought to them. Correct in the Quran also, we learn about the stories. Likewise, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam where he conveyed the message, he also guided the people in the sense that he led

00:42:37--> 00:43:20

them if they had disputes, he solved them. If there was, you know, a new situation about which they were unsure off as to what they should do the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he guided them. So in order to establish justice, and in that was an example for the people who came afterwards inserted an ayah 91 one mapa de la haka De La Paloma. Under the law, we are never shut in, men shy and they did not appraise a lot with true appraisal, meaning they did not give a las panatela the true value that he deserves, especially when they said man that Allahu Allah Bhushan, Eman shape, when they say that Allah never sent a messenger.

00:43:22--> 00:43:27

This is like disrespecting a loss of panel data when a person says, a lesson no messenger. How?

00:43:28--> 00:43:33

Because can it be imagined that Allah would create a creation and leave them misguided?

00:43:35--> 00:43:38

Can it be imagined? Allah who is so merciful?

00:43:39--> 00:43:46

Who is so merciful, who is a human, a human who is managing sustaining our worldly affairs?

00:43:47--> 00:43:54

In such a complete and perfect way? I mean, just look at your body. If you ever burn your skin, then what happens? It's left burnt.

00:43:55--> 00:44:00

What happens? It builds off a new skin appears over there.

00:44:01--> 00:44:16

Right? So Allah, Allah you, if he cures your body, if there's something wrong with your body, he fixes that. Then if there's something wrong with your heart, and your understanding, do you think you would leave your like that? Does it make sense?

00:44:18--> 00:44:23

So this is really disrespecting a loss of penalty when people say that Allah sent messengers,

00:44:24--> 00:44:59

Allah's mercy, all of that it demands that he would send guidance to people. So the purpose of sending the messengers was, how would you summarize that? What was the purpose, to guide to teach, to judge to give good news to give warning, fulfill Allah's promise of guiding mankind? Now, what does it mean to believe in the prophets and the messengers? When we say we believe in the prophets and messengers, what exactly do we believe in? What are the constituents of belief in the messengers? First of all, it means that we believe in Allah

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

Prophets and Messengers, no matter which people they were sent to, and even though their names and details may not have been informed to us, some prophets we know about them, their names, the people whom they were sent to, when they were sent, what they did, who their children were. Right? We know about everything. I mean many things about them. But there are other prophets whose names we don't even know. We don't even know about their details when exactly they were sent. Right? Like, for example, we learned about the number of losers and the number of profits if it's over 100,000. Then who are the

00:45:37--> 00:45:47

winners ones were they a low Arnhem, but remember that we as Muslims believe in all of them, all of them.

00:45:49--> 00:46:31

Even if we don't know their names, even if we don't know their details, yes. Even if we never met them, yes. Even if we're not required to follow them in the sense that follow them in the teachings that they brought, because we're to follow Mohammed alongside him, right? Yes, still we believe in all of the prophets instead of the Messiah. 164 Allah says, what are the causes now whom is a common common? We'll also Lan Lan Naxos home I like some profits, we have informed you about them other profits we didn't tell you about them. So even though you don't know still you're required to believe in them in certain Nisa I 151 51 in the Ludhiana Corona Bella, he was also the way you redo

00:46:31--> 00:47:12

it and you forget Cobain Allah He will do silly that they differentiate they discriminate between Allah and His messengers how they say that Yeah, we believe in God, but we don't believe in any profits. Is this acceptable? Not at all. Why? akuna No min Oberlin wanaque photo will be BB. They say we believe in some profits, but we don't believe in others. We believe in Moosa, we don't believe in Mohammed Coronavirus. And we believe in ERISA, but we don't believe in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam this kind of belief. Is that acceptable? Not at all. Were you reading it and yet Dido Bina Delica sebelah the wish to take away in between that will echo McAfee Runa hochkar

00:47:13--> 00:47:46

What does Allah say about these people? They are disbelievers In truth, meaning These are the people who are disbelievers. So Eman demands that a person believes in all of the profits, insert into NASA io 150 to one ladina M and will be laggy. While also he while I'm new for Rico, Bane, I hadn't been home, they do not discriminate between any of the messengers, meaning they believe in all of them. In sort of the sharada i 105, we learned about the people of New Harley Sena. Allah says, get the word cow Menuhin.

00:47:47--> 00:47:53

Who did they deny? Elmore? Sally, the messengers? Which messengers did they deny?

00:47:55--> 00:47:56

Allah says all of them.

00:47:57--> 00:48:42

But which messenger was sent to them? New highness, Salah, and how many messengers had been sent before him? None? Because he was the first one. So there were prophets before him. So we see that the messengers all came after New penicillin. So the people of New hallasan didn't even know them. But yet when they rejected new highlights, and this was equal to rejecting all of the profits, so what do we learn from all of these verses? that we have to believe in all of the prophets and messengers of Allah, whether we know them, or we don't know them? Whether we are to follow them or not to follow them, meaning the Sharia that they brought, we believe in all of them. Secondly, we

00:48:42--> 00:49:18

believe that Allah subhanaw taala sent a messenger to every community, every community, meeting, every time that people needed guidance, Allah subhanaw taala sent guidance to them, through messengers through prophets, instead of Mahalia 36, one Nakata, Bharath, Neff, equally omitted Rasulullah. In every community, we send a prasun and what is the messenger convey, or people worship Allah and avoid the whole likewise, in sort of Islam, 15 America no more I live in a hut than ever I thought of sooner, that we would not finish until we sent a messenger

00:49:19--> 00:49:31

meaning people would not be destroyed until a messenger was sent to them, who taught them who warned them. Then we also believe that the messenger is very in their ranks and their qualities.

00:49:32--> 00:49:59

Because we see that in all of the creation of Allah, soprano, Donna there is variation right, flowers, fragrances, trees, all of them they vary in their size, in the color, right, even people knowledge variation. So likewise, in the Prophet of Allah, also there is variation how that some prophets were given higher status compared to

00:50:00--> 00:50:19

The others they were given more qualities compared to the others in total bacara 253 ticker woosehill for Bala Baba home, Alabama we prefer some of them over others this is a reality it's affect how men human columella

00:50:20--> 00:51:05

from among them are those who Allah spoke to directly by for example musar Listen, the way our last presenter is booked in Busan Listen, direct conversations, not once, not twice, but many times. That didn't happen with every prophet, not at all. So Allah subhanaw taala chosen Sardis and above the other prophets and messengers in this manner. All right, one of our brother whom Dada jack and others, he raised them in their ranks. Well at a 97 Amalia malbay unit restarted Sam was given by you know, many miracles, the likes of which were not given to other prophets. Were a donor who below him for this. And Allah subhanaw taala helped reciting them through debris, the way other prophets

00:51:05--> 00:51:37

were not given help and assistance through debris, you understand? So, Allah subhanaw taala gave his prophets different qualities. And by that he raised some of them over others and we believe in this fact. In surah, Bani Israel I have 55 what are the four burner burger Nabina? Oliver have we preferred some profits over others what Dana, the Buddha, the Buddha, and we gave to the zoo. And we see that every prophet messenger was not given a scripture, some were given.

00:51:39--> 00:51:58

You understand? Some were given the wilderness and I was given the book after him today man are they seven was he given? No musasa was given to Torah. How was he given it? No. interobserver I attend what are called the Athena Dawood, Amina fabula Allah subhanaw taala gifted I would listen and follow what is follow

00:51:59--> 00:52:47

what is possible an extra favor? All right, that was not given to others, but was given to him specifically. And what was that big belly a wavy Mara hula played, when he would do the spear, the mountains and the birds would repeat after him? Can you imagine mountains and birds repeating after him? Well, and then Nana Hadid and Hadid iron was made soft for him. So he could mold it with his hands. Can other people do that? No. He could, unless a penalty gave him that characteristic, that unique quality. But remember that this fact does not mean that we belittle some profits. Right? No, we believe in all of the profits, and we believe that Allah raised some of them above others. But we

00:52:47--> 00:52:55

don't, you know, like compete between them. Oh, he was better than the other. He was better than the others.

00:52:56--> 00:53:03

You understand? We believe in all of them, we respect all of them. Because when people started doing that, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam,

00:53:04--> 00:53:43

that argument that happened between Jews and the Muslims, that they said musallam is the best and he said, No, how mazzarella Islam is the best, because in such arguments and disputes, what happens while you are respecting one Prophet, you might be disrespecting the other and this is the reason why the Prophet told about it and warned he said do not favor me over the profits, even though his level is the highest among the profits, but still he said, Do not favor me over the profits. Do not try to respect me and in that process, disrespect the other prophets. And we see that there are among the prophets and messengers the

00:53:44--> 00:53:51

messengers who are given, you can say a greater rank compared to the rest of the possessors off as in what is

00:53:52--> 00:54:29

determination strong resolve, inserted cough i a 35. Allah says possible canal sobre una Azmi Minato. So be patient, as were those of determination among the messengers. You should be patient just like them. Now who were the owners and prophets sort of Azov is seven they are mentioned. What is hardened Amina Bina mitaka han woman can you meaning Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam secondly woman new Thirdly, what Ibrahim fourth one Moosa fifth were a 70 million. So these five prophets are who the olan Asan prophets, two of them are hollyland, who are the

00:54:31--> 00:54:59

Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam event, Ibrahim Addison, and the rest of them they are described as little as Why are they called kulula? Because they had some special, unique qualities. So for example, new lesson we learn in sort of izaiah three in the who can add them shockula he was a grateful servant, and sort of new we learned about how he did Dawa, how he called people to Allah, calling them day and night openly, privately one by one and collectively

00:55:00--> 00:55:23

in different ways, he was so determined. Ibrahim is an internal mahina I have for a lot elders that in his life is an excellent example for us to follow. Then we learned that Ibrahim is an ultimatum his friend with de la Ibrahima. canina Surah Nisa then we see that everyone him or his Sunnah Allah penalty automated email in Nigeria locally nasty email

00:55:24--> 00:56:10

and we see that he fulfilled everything that allows parents Allah commanded him to do what Ibrahim and Lady what is called la hora boo a slim Allah Islam Do you know how these Muslim we learned that once a man said to the prophets of Allah said him yeah halal buddy Yeah What does it mean? Yeah hydel Berea Oh best of creation. So what happened? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that Ibrahim, that is a blame, why are you calling me the best of creation that was able to him the best of creation. So, there are many unique special qualities of the prophets of Allah and amongst them that they possessed many of them and inshallah, we will go over the other qualities also. So panicle lock

00:56:10--> 00:56:16

will be handed over La ilaha illa Anta Nestor fuuka wanted to relate Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
