Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
are the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Rasool E and Karim rubbish roughly sadri were silly emri Washington wroxeter melissani Yakubu Kohli along Maggie Colby was added recently what suits him at the Colby amin your IRA mean?
inshallah we will continue with our study of Sudoku puzzles. And today inshallah, we will begin from verse number 43. In the previous verses we learned about how fit our own was destroyed, because of his
continuous denial, his oppression, his arrogance, and we saw the end that Allah subhana wa tada describes in the verses that how, in this world that our own and his people were destroyed, they were cursed, and in the hereafter also they will be mockable hain. Meaning they will be,
you know, really despicable they will have no worth whatsoever and for their own will be a leader of people in the sense that he will lead them to hell, just as he led them in sin and transgression in this life, he will lead them towards hell in on the Day of Judgment. Now in verse number 43, Allah subhanaw taala says we'll attain our Mazel Kitab and certainly We gave Moosa the book, meaning we are the ones who gave Moosa the tow rod and when is it that most early Sam was given the tow Rod mimbar the MA lachenal, Coronel Ola. After we had destroyed the former generations, meaning musala his salon was given the book The total dot after for their own was destroyed member the MA Lucknow
Coronel Ola. Now, look now, this is from HELOC and HELOC is to destroy and prune is a plural of current. And current is basically a generation or a people of a generation. So, alula the former once meaning the earlier generations after their destruction musala has said I'm was then given the tote. Now, who are these earlier generations. One interpretation of this is that it's referring to fit our own and his people, meaning most artists and I was not given that a lot when he was in Egypt. He was actually given the a lot after if at our own and his people were destroyed. mossadegh is set up, took the money out of Egypt. And when they were on their way to Palestine. That is when
we started his salon was given the toll road and the details of that are mentioned in sewable, Baccarat and in other places in the Quran. So the Torah was given because it's a lot contained commands. And the bunny is not you were not in a position to follow any particular law while they were oppressed and enslaved in Egypt. So, after they were given their freedom, after you know they were rescued, that is when the law was given to them. Secondly, to set that mimbar the MA Lucknow Coronel Allah This is actually referring to the former communities meaning the nations of odd you know after mood, the really ancient peoples It was after them but most already Salaam was given the
tau dot and the point of mentioning this is that that earlier generations yes when they denied their profits, when they continue to rebel. Yes, they work a completely annihilated so for example, we learn about the people of the moon completely destroyed, the people have completely destroyed the people of our own also the entire civilization wiped out. So this is something that happened earlier, but they are gonna say based on this idea that this kind of helical arm, meaning the wiping out of an entire generation of an entire civilization. This happened only until the time of Mossad a senate meeting after masari SLM, it never happened that that an entire nation was completely wiped
out because of their denial of a
Prophet after that the law was different, meaning those who rebelled against the the prophets, or those who opposed the prophets, any such people were fought against. And this is why we see that the bunny is slow in any, they actually,
you know, we're put in positions where they had to fight back against, you know, different enemies. And an example of that is mentioned in sort of tobacco, you know, at the end of the second Jersey, where we learn about how, you know, the story of followed and dilute. So the body is like you had to fight against, you know, those people who had evicted them from their homes, there was no, you know, punishment that came from above, or, you know, something that came from the earth that that wiped out that entire nation. No, it was the bunny is Satya who had to fight them. So. So here what is mentioned is that, that the book, meaning the Torah was given to Musashi Salaam, after that period,
and why was the book given what was the purpose of this Kitab The purpose was both saw alienness as enlightenment for people, well, who done and guidance where I'm at and, and immersi learn lomita that qaboun in order that they might be reminded in order that they take lesson they take heed. So here we see the purpose of Revelation, why is it that Allah subhanaw taala revealed books for for what benefit, there's three benefits that are listed over here, the first benefit is that the book of Allah serves as basa alienness. Now beside it is a plural of basura and basilar is is that by which a person is able to see meaning it is that which gives vision that which allows a person to
see so so itself, it is enlightening, right? So the book of Allah is supposed to be a basa alienness meaning that it is such that, that it opens the eyes of people, it is such that it enables the people to see what is right and what is wrong. What is of benefit, and what is a source of harm. Meaning without the book of Allah, people don't have that ability to see what is right and what is wrong. And and this is something that that really is true. Because if you talk to different people, if you ask them for their opinions, that do you think this is right? Or do you think this is wrong? Any what is evil? And what is good? Right? This is something debatable, right? People will come up
with their own opinions. So So what is it that's really evil? And what is it that's really good, is it people who get to decide this? Because if that was the case, then we would never come to any unanimous opinion, we would continue to differ amongst ourselves. So Allah subhanaw taala is the one who has revealed his books in order to give people the ability to see what is right and what is wrong. Meaning in the light of, of the book of Allah, in, you know, in light of its teachings, in light of its verses, in light of its commands, you know, it is that people are able to see what is right and what is wrong. And this shows us that the book of Allah is really, you know, vision giving
it it's enabled a person to see, which means that without the book of Allah, her person is in blindness and we're not talking about the physical ability to see or not see, that's not you know, the focus over here because there are people who are unable to see, but they have the vision of the heart, they have the vision of the mind. And then there are other people who have perfect vision of the eyes, but their hearts are blind. So, for in the her lateral abasolo were lacking thermal kulu Latif is sudo it is not the eyes that that become blind, it is actually the hearts that become blind, that is real blindness. So what is it that removes our blindness, what is it that gives us
the ability to see, it is the book of Allah. Secondly, the Book of Allah is, is houda it is supposed to be a guidance, meaning it It shows the way it directs people to slaughter muster him to the straight path to the to the right way of living life to the right way of going through life in order to reach the right destination which is Gemini insha Allah and remember that who the guidance is not simply that you just show the way that
Okay, go on this road know who that is to continuously guide. It's not just guide but to lead. Right? So this is the book of Allah that a, it's a constant source of guidance. And this is why it is so important for us to constantly seek guidance from the Quran through the Quran. Meaning it's not just enough to, you know, say that yes, I, you know, I believe in the Quran and therefore I am upon guidance, or that I, you know, I learned at once upon a time, you know, I know that the Quran says this, and the Quran says that, so I do those things, that's not sufficient. What is required is that until the end of our lives, we are seeking we are deriving guidance from the Quran. And really
the book of Allah is such that every time a person goes astray, or a person is tempted to do something wrong, the Book of Allah is such that it leads a person back to the straight path. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave a beautiful example of this, that how the Quran is a source of continuous guidance for people. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned, you know, an entire scenario, the summary of which is that, you know, there's, there's a road leading to a destination. And on either side of the road, there is, you know, a wall,
meaning there's walls on either side, and within those walls or doors, but on those doors are curtains. So, you know, so there is a, there's a voice at the end of the road, which keeps saying that follow along, come along, and do not go right or left meaning do not go in through any of these openings. So when a person intends to lift a curtain, in order to look at what is inside or to go off the road, the there is a voice above, there is a voice at the end of the road that calls him that do not do that stay on the road. And the Prophet sallallahu Urdu Sena mentioned that one of those voices mean the voice that is coming from the end of the road, that is the book of Allah, and
that is the Quran. And those openings, those doors, those are the prohibited matters, meaning the things which Allah subhanaw taala has declared how long unlawful, so every time that a person is tempted to do something wrong, or that a person has developed a bad habit, or that a person in their ignorance has started doing something that is wrong, or you know, because of their desires, because of their lack of or weakness of faith, a person has started doing something wrong. As soon as they connect with the book of Allah, the Book of Allah brings them out of that darkness into light. So the book of Allah is supposed to be houda it's supposed to be a guidance. And then thirdly, the Book
of Allah is supposed to be a rahima, a mercy, a mercy for who, for those people who believe, because they're the ones who benefit from the book of Allah. They are the ones who are able to see in its light. They're the ones who take the book of Allah as their guide. So it leads them along the straight path. And because of that, the Book of Allah becomes a Lima for them. La lomita, Cameroon in order that they may be reminded yet coronas from tobacco to that code is from Vicki Vickers to remember and that code is to, is to take lesson. So Lauren lomita the Quran in order that they take heed, they they are reminded by what they learn in the book of Allah, it you know, it touches their
heart, and it allows them to change their behavior, learn the Haumea to the Quran. Now, this verse is specifically talking about the toe rod, that it was revealed for these reasons, but we see that you know, this was yes, this these were the, the the characteristics of the toe rod but also of the Quran. So for example, we learn in sort of Eunice is number 57. I lost pounds Darla says yeah, are you a nurse or the Atacama were Illa to Mila become that are people there has come to you and instruction from your Lord, what she felt will Lima for sudo and something that will that is a source of healing for that which is in the art which is in the chest well who then wahama to Lil
macmini and a guidance and mercy for those who believe meaning this is the Quran. Likewise in Soto Jaffa is number 20. Allah subhanaw taala says Heather basa your willingness that this is it. This is bisaya same word is used over there. Meaning enlightenment for people will who done what I am and
guidance and immersi likoma. UK known for people who believe with conviction. So, remember that the book of Allah was, whether it was the total, or it was the Injeel. Or it was the or it is the Quran, the Book of Allah has not been sent simply to inform people that Oh, people do this and don't do that. The Book of Allah is not just, you know, do's and don'ts, nor is it just, you know, filled with news information or stories of the people of the past, or information regarding the Day of Judgment. Yes, it contains all of that. But I What is the purpose, the purpose is to give us vision, the purpose is to guide us, the purpose is to is that this is almost upon author's mercy upon
people, this is a gift of a lot to people, meaning something that will rescue them something that will help them something that will uplift them something that will transform their lives, something that will make them successful in this life, and in the next life. So the question that we need to ask ourselves, is that, that, how connected? Are we, with the book of Allah? Is the book of Allah corbon just a source of information a news for me? Or is it something that I benefit from at a personal level, so that, you know, I reflect upon its verses I understand it's versus, and I, you know, I look at the events in my life, and I look at the things that are happening around the world,
and I look at myself even in light of, of the teachings of the book of Allah, and am I deriving who that guidance instruction from the book of Allah, and is it and do I want it to be a source of mercy for me, and, again, I would remind you, and encourage you, that please do yourself a favor, you know, really give a gift to yourself. And that gift is that allow yourself to study the Quran, from the beginning to the uncover to cover the entire Quran at least once in your lifetime. And, and do something in order to, you know, learn the Quran better understand it better. This is, this is one of the best gifts that you can give yourself, you know, we all want to treat ourselves, right, or we
want to do things as part of self care. And, and I think that one of the most important things that we must do for ourselves is that we must allow ourselves to learn to put on cover to cover, meaning this is essential, this is this is for you, this is for your own benefit. This is for your own healing, for your own growth, for your spiritual development for your dunya and for your so you have to make time for this and see what is possible and hamdulillah in January at the Institute, we're starting a new program 13 will put on 18 month long course full time course. And because many people are at home anyway because of the pandemic, and this is an excellent opportunity to study the Quran.
And please, you know, share this information with your family and friends so they can also benefit and then it is said in the next verse I have number 44 when our quanta be journey bill Herbie and you Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were not on the western side will not contact you or not be journey. At the journey journey is the side which side al-harbi the western side, meaning the western side of the mount of food,
meaning you are not on the side, watching musalla he said as he approached the mountain in order to
you know, get some burning embers from the fire or in order to talk to you know, the people that he thought were present over there. You weren't there watching him coming. You weren't there witnessing the entire incident where musala who sent him came and Allah subhanaw taala spoke to him and Allah subhanaw taala asked him that what is in your hand and lusardi salon, you know, described his staff and he was told to throw his staff and he threw it turned into a snake most artists and and ran, he was called back so he came and then Allah subhanaw taala told him to put his hand in his you know, in the opening of his shirt, it came up glowing, any you weren't there witnessing observing all of
this. If Alena Isla musala Umrah you were not present when we conveyed to musar
He sent him an umbrella, the matter when we conveyed the matter to musala his setup. Now the word Umbra means two things. The word ombre can mean a matter and it can also mean the a command. And we can understand the word amoud. In both ways over here, if we understand this, to be matter, conveyed the matter to him, what what this would mean is that we gave him revelation, and we made him a prophet. We spoke to him, you weren't there witnessing all of that. The Prophet sallallahu earlier son was not there. He did not witness musar Listen, I'm being given revelation being given Prophethood he was not there to witness, you know, when Allah subhanaw taala spoke to mozzarella,
his Sunnah. Secondly, if we take the Word of God as command, then remember that Allah subhanaw taala, commanded him certain things, commanded most artists and I'm certain things right, he gave him certain order certain prohibitions, he instructed him to go to fit our own. So the Prophet salallahu earlier and he was told over here, that you were not there, you know, witnessing all of that. And this is an evidence of the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited these events to the people, right, these verses that conveyed the news of mozzarella, his son m, and the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam.
And he, how did he come to know of all of that information? Right, there's only two ways of, of knowing something in so much detail. One is that you were present over there, you were an eyewitness, you saw it for yourself, or you have met someone who saw it, right. So so they tell you, you ask them. And another way is another possibility is that you, you read about it, right? You you learn about it, you know, you you you have enough of it through some means. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wasn't there, right? That's, of course, something very obvious, he did not live at that time, he was not present over there. So this was not, you know, something that
he witnessed himself.
Secondly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was an ami, meaning he did not know how to read and write a text. And he he was not familiar because he was an Arab from the unlettered people, he was not familiar with the believes the teachings off of the of the People of the Book, because remember that the people of the book, they would really keep their knowledge to themselves. So how is it that you know, how is it that you are reciting all of this with so much detail? This is an evidence This is a proof of the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was informed, right? Now, how is it that he was informed? You see, a lot of people say that, while there were, you
know, some travelers or, you know, some, some Roman slaves, etc, through whom the Prophet salallahu already said I'm had learned about these incidents, or that he himself because he was a merchant, so he used to travel a lot. And that is how he came to know of all of these accounts. But the question is that out of all the people in Arabia, he was he the only one? If this knowledge was accessible to him? Why would it not be accessible to other people in Arabia? How is it that they did not know about these stories at all? How is it that out of all people he knew there were people who traveled more than he did? There were people who, you know, who owned Roman slaves, etc, or more, you know,
and who had access to those people more than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did, right, there were people in Arabia, who, who even spoke the language of those people, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not. So, how is it that those people that the rest of the people in Arabia, they they did not know about these accounts, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did? So, this is this is not a strong argument. So, how is it that the Prophet sallallahu arisen and found out and and another thing is that we all know how when stories are transmitted from person to person to person, you know, there are details that are changed, there are major points that are you
know, lost or ignored or you know, people basically give their own twist right to to those accounts. But somehow the lights amazing, there are passages in the Quran, especially with regard to mozzarella, his Sena or with regard to recently, Sam, with regard to
you know, other prophets of Allah Yusuf Alayhi Salam especially
When you read those accounts in the Bible, literally sometimes you are amazed that the similarity Subhanallah any it's not possible that you know someone knew of a biblical story and then you know they passed it on and eventually it reached the Prophet sallallahu earlier Salah, any it's not it's not possible they have to be from the same source. So how is it that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam knew Allah Subhana Allah says Wimmer conterminous shahidi and you were not among the witnesses, Ushahidi is a plural of Shahid and shahida is to witness something to to see something for yourself. So, when our quantum inertia hidden, you are not present over there observing all of
this, you are not you know, a witness to to to all of these events. So, the only way you could have known is that this knowledge was revealed to you. Now in sort of earlier on I have 44 lost power Donna says regarding the story of money I'm the mother of his son and that valley come in amber Elaine knowhy Lake Valley come in Amber ellaby knowhy Lake This is from the news of the unseen meaning news that were unknown to you, right it wasn't the unseen and now you have come to know about it because knew he like we have revealed it to you. Well my content today him and you were not with them, if you will, Kunal akula Whom are you whom equilibrium when they were casting their pens
in the water as to decide meaning they were casting lots, why in order to to decide as to who will be who will be the guardian of medium or my continent ADF definitely more than you were not present over there when they were disputing amongst themselves meaning you were not present witnessing all of this about use of artist center, but the story of use of artists and and we learned into the use of I 102 that valley come in a very low vibe no he he like this is from the news of the unseen which We have revealed to you. Well, my content today is a Jamal amraam omean Quran and you were not with them when the brothers of use of RT Sam had you know decided upon a matter which was to to throw use
of early Islam in the well when we um Quran and while they were plotting you were not there. So, how is it that you know, you are narrating all of this? Why because it was given to you this knowledge was given to you it was revealed to you. Now here Allah either mentions that in Polina Isla Mazel Umrah when we conveyed the command to Musa alayhis salaam at that time you weren't present you weren't witnessing. So the question is what commands was most artists and I'm given at that time meaning at at the mount pool.
First of all, we see in Surah Taha verses 13 onwards, that Allah subhanaw taala said to Musashi Salaam What are nocturnal Toka festa mera Lima you have that I have selected you therefore, listen carefully to that which is revealed to you. So what is it the most obvious and I was instructed at that time? So, the next verse, verse number 14, the first thing he was told in any and Allahu La Ilaha Illa NFR bodoni that I indeed, the fact is, that I am Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said this, La ilaha illa Allah there is no god worthy of worship except I, for a Buddha need, therefore worship me. So the first Omer the first command that musante salaam was given, was that he should worship
only Allah because Allah is the only God worthy of worship. Secondly, he was told what apenas solitary victory and establish the prayer for my remembrance, pray Salah vasarely said I was also commanded to pray salah and we learn about different prophets performing Sunnah. So the nations before the prophets before they were instructed to pray as well, just as the prophets of Allah who already know Solomon has oma, we have also been commanded to pray Salah what have been the salata lyrically thirdly in the next iron in this in the SATA, to atone occur to ofI highly to giacalone Epson dematha, Sarah, the Hereafter is mentioned that it is coming, and every person is going to be
recompense for what they are doing. In the next verse, verse 16, falaj so then the current hum Allah you may not be how tabara Hawa who photographer do not allow those people who don't believe in the hereafter to to hinder you. Do meaning to prevent you from from preparing for that day. The people
who follow their desires because if you were to follow them, then you are going to be destroyed. And then in verse number 24, musar listen and was instructed in hub, Ilford, our owner in the hotel Hall go to fit our own, for he has rebelled. So these were some of the commands that we learn about. That Musalia center was given at that meeting, the first meeting at at two. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. How is it that he knew about this? There were 1000s of years between moose Arneson, em and Mohammed sallallahu. Early he was the Prophet sallallahu wasallam could not have seen this himself. So how did he know he knew through what a revelation had been given to him? Next verse,
verse number 45. Almost Pandora says well at kinah and shut now Poonam Fatah Allah Allah human are mode well I can now but indeed we and chat now we produced Conan many generations. Meaning between you and musar, alayhis salaam, there have been many generations put on again is a plural of autumn, fertile Tavella la human aroma and prolonged was their duration. Meaning there has been a long time that has passed between you and WUSA. So any even if we're talking about you know, someone was there, and then they,
you know, told that account to someone and then it passed through generations.
Any we see that over generations, a lot of news they get they get lost, a lot of knowledge gets lost a lot of
you know, information gets changed, basically. So, what's the point of saying this, the purpose of saying this is if we go back to the first verse that we started with today, that Allah subhanaw taala reveal the toe rot, right for the purpose of guidance. But what happened over time over all of these years that passed after musante has sent out people stopped seeking guidance from the Talat Allah subhanaw taala conveyed the command to Musashi Salah right? worship only Allah, pray Salah right?
Be ready for the hereafter. But what happened after musar? Listen, am people for God all of these commands, meaning knowledge disappeared. And as a result of that people were in need of guidance. And this is the reason why Allah subhanaw taala sent Muhammad Sallallahu Urdu cinema as a messenger, meaning now people were again in desperate need of guidance, it was necessary that people be given guidance, and this is why the Prophet salallahu Urdu center was sent as a messenger. Now a person might say, Well, no, if you think about it, the Bible existed at that time, it still exists today. So you know, the 10 commandments, you know, people know about them, even today, many still follow
them. So there was no need of sending the Quran. No, that's not the point. It's not that people did not have information. Remember, the purpose of the book of Allah is not just to give information, it is to guide people. We learned in our Hadees the that once the Prophet sallallahu, earlier, Sena mentioned something. And he said that that will be at the time when knowledge will disappear. Meaning he mentioned something that would happen in the future, closer to the end of times. And he said that that will be at a time when knowledge will disappear. So one of the companions who was there as he had any little deal, Amarna, he said that the Messenger of Allah, how will knowledge
disappear? When we read the Quran, and we teach it to our children, and they will teach it to their children, and they will teach it to their children and they will read it, you know, teach it to their children until the day of judgment. Any How is it possible for knowledge to just disappear? Right? We're going to teach it Our children are going to teach their children so it's going to be transferred generation to generation. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, may your mother be bereft of you, oh, Ziad, I thought that you were the wisest man in Medina. Is it not the case that the Jews and Christians read the toad art and the Injeel, but they do not act upon anything, which
is in it in them? Isn't it that they have their books, they read them, but they do not follow what is in those books, meaning they don't use their books for guidance. So fertile ta Allah, Allah human omotola motala This is from tool pool is length. All right. So the thought will is when something becomes extremely long, any a long time
You know, passed. And what happens is that over time, you kind of take for granted what you have. You don't you forget the purpose. You don't even realize what what role it serves. Right? What? You know what benefit it contains. So the people of the book, yes, they had they had their books, but they, first of all, they changed a lot of its contents, right. Secondly, whatever they had, they just had knowledge of it. They didn't really act upon it. They didn't really follow it. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala sent Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Yanni, he was given not just the knowledge of the account of Mozart listen and the account of use of it, Sam, but but also other matters as well. Which we learn in the Quran which which are essential for people's guidance. So we see that the people of the book, yes, the stories are with them and more but it is mere information to them. They don't use it as Bissau. They don't use it as Huda. So it is not a Rama for them. And this is why as a mercy Allah subhanaw taala has revealed the Quran and how is it that the Prophet sallallahu Urdu Selim came to know about these accounts through revelation, just like what have I been nofal said that it is the same now moose meaning gibreel that
God sent down to Moosa meaning the same angel that was sent to Moosa has come to you won our contest lvnv le madeon. And you were not a resident among the people of Medina in Serbian, this is from sola azzawajal is the root cellar is to remain somewhere, meaning for a very long time. And Martha is abode because that is where a person lives. So we're not going to sell again you were not a resident, a resident where fee le madeon. You will Prophet sallallahu Sallam were not a resident among the people of meridian.
That Lu Allah him Aya Tina, reciting to them our verses, when I can can now mousseline but we were senders, we are the ones who have sent you as a messenger, meaning another possibility of the Prophet sallallahu or it is an annoying about the account of most artists, Allah is that perhaps, you know if if he if he lived in a city where most artists and I'm King, and that was Medea, remember most artists and I'm fled from Egypt, he came to my dad, he remained there for a very long time. So the Prophet sallallahu already said it was not a resident of Medina and not then when musala salaam came, and not now meaning when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
you know, was born, he was not from Medina, and he never lived in Medina. So he never witnessed the, you know, most artists coming there, nor did he hear about it from the people of his city, that once upon a time a man came like this, you know, in every in small communities in the past, especially, you know, there were accounts of the people in the past that were passed on generation to generation. So the Prophet sallallahu already said it was not an inhabitant of meridian. Right. And especially, what is mentioned over here is that you were not a messenger among them. You were not a messenger sent to them. You are in Makkah, we have sent you here in Makkah. Right. So the point is
that this story of moosari, Sam was completely unknown to the Arabs, right. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had no way of finding out about the story except through revelation. So again, it is emphasized that we are the ones who sent you in the next verse. Again, it is emphasized without couldn't be journey be at the nadina. And you were not at the side of the mount when we called meaning when we called Moosa. Again, you were not present on the journey of the side of the mountain. Earlier it was mentioned the western side of the mountain. Here, you were not present at the side of the mountain, meaning any side ignor day now when we called moosari, his center meaning
you were not there watching, you know, from the side,
you know, how are people accidentally see something, you know, or they sneak up and as a result of that, they get to see what's happening. You were not there, in sort of Mario 52 we learn whenever you know, human journey be total aim and walk around now who knows the year that we called him from from the side of the mountain meaning musala his salon. So, again, the point of all of this is that
That the Prophet sallallahu Sallam could not have invented all of this, and he could not have learned about this from any person, either. Because he was not from those people, among whom these stories were known, nor was he a witness to these events when they occurred. But amazing is the fact that the the description that is given in the Quran of these events, it's, it's literally like an eyewitness report. Right? So the only way the Prophet sallallahu Urdu Sena, could have known about this was through revelation. So it is mentioned we're lacking urashima Tamil Robic, but as a mercy from your Lord, meaning you were given this news you were given all of this information, the entire
account of mozzarella, his setup, and more meaning the Quran, why was it given to the Prophet salallahu alayhi Salaam as a mercy from your Lord and letona zero Coleman, in order that you may warn a people which people what kind of people, man a townhome in Needham, and public they are such that no warner came to them before you, they never received any, any profit any Warner before you. So you have been sent as a messenger to them. Lai la Haumea to the karoun in order that they might be reminded, so we see over here that the coming of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the revelation of the Quran, it is immersi from Allah subhanaw taala
any, the fact that uh, people have been given the Quran, the Book of Allah, as guidance, as basa, if this is a huge Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala on those people on that individual, because life with the Quran and life without the Quran, they're not the same. Not at all.
Any, the Quran literally transforms a person, the Quran literally makes them a newer, better version of themselves, they don't become someone else, they become a better version of themselves. It's as if they were in darkness before and now with the Quran, there's a light, there's purpose, there is joy, there is, you know, awareness. So, this is this is the mercy of Allah, soprano darna. So, it is mentioned here very clearly that we're lacking rajmata mirror, but this is purely immersi from your Lord. And also notice here, that the Arabs
any they did not receive any profit before Muhammad Sallallahu already he was Sunday, meaning the only prophet before him was in Arabia was who it was a smaller either early his center
and at that time, the population was very little. And yes, people were upon to hate the worshipped only Allah. But we know that how, gradually they started worshipping idols. So, these people, the Arabs, they were in need of guidance. And Allah subhanaw taala bestowed a huge mercy upon them when he sent Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam to them among them. Now, these verses also clarify that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was not held with knowledge everywhere, in the sense that he was not he is not such that he is present everywhere he is not such that he sees everything and everyone. Unfortunately, there are no such concepts that exist within Muslims even that they think that the Prophet sallallahu early Sunday was present, which is why you know, in certain gatherings when when people you know, gathered together to celebrate
you know, the the Prophet sallallahu early he was sent them. And it's unfortunate that it happens mostly in the month of February our 12th in particular, and people think that that is when he was born. We don't know if he was actually born on that day, but definitely that is the day when he died. Any This is amazing. But the Prophet sallallahu already said I've never instructed people to do that the companions of the buckle dilla horn who never did that. So anyway, if people wish to, you know, gather together and remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to talk about him, renew their love for him, etc. Okay.
That sentiment is okay, fine. It's a little understandable, however, to to do things like, you know, stand up and sense and sense Salam upon him, stand up and send salata upon him.
What's the point? Any, I remember when I was little? I happen to be in a gathering like that, not by choice but it just so happened that all of a sudden everybody's standing up and everybody was forced to stand up that now the profit is coming in we have to send Salaam upon him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he This is an incorrect belief. The Prophet sallallahu, Urdu Salaam was not there by the side of the mountain, all right, one that couldn't be journey be told you were not present two times this is mentioned in in these in these verses. So the Prophet sallallahu already said it was a human being. And this has mentioned in the Quran in many places, and we must not forget that fact about
him. And believing that he was a human being does not diminish his, his, his rank at all. In fact, his honor, is in the fact that he was a human being yet so perfect. He was a human being yet so devout, yet any Allah subhanaw taala bestowed so much upon him. So
the Prophet salallahu Urdu center was not there, he was not present. And he only came to know about matters when they were conveyed to him when when he was informed about those matters. So even when, you know, for example, you send Sadat upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he doesn't hear it directly. It is conveyed to him. All right, it is that news is given to him. So it's necessary that we you know, correct our beliefs regarding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So, it is mentioned here, that the purpose of sending the Quran sending the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mercy, warning la lomita karoun in total Merida is number 19. Allah subhanaw taala addresses the people of the book that Yeah, Al Kitab or the gerakan Rasulullah ubu la cama Allah Fatima Russell, that all people have the book there has come to you our messenger who clarifies matters to you, and this messenger has come to you after a long gap, meaning for a long time you did not have any messengers. So this messenger has now come to you and why has he come to you lest you say that we never knew.
The fact is that there has come to you but she don't want to need a bearer of good news and a warner. So the people of the book are mentioned over there and so to such that I have three analysts Priyanka says Bella will help them with Robbie cleeton zero comma tell him in the dairyman public the Quran is the truth from your Lord in order that you may warn people who received no warner before you, Laura Lomi afternoon in order that they receive guidance. So
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was sent as a mercy to all people.
Any not just the Arabs, but to all people kuliah yohannes in New rasulillah he likened geneon Sorrell, Raphael 158, there are people, indeed, I'm a messenger of Allah to all of you.
So this has made clear over here, that the people who have not been warned, and now they have been warned, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been sent the Quran has been revealed. So here it says, if the Arabs are being encouraged that look, you did not know you did not receive any messenger before. You should rush to believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and show gratitude to Allah for this huge blessing. But it's amazing that instead of believing in the Prophet sallallahu wasallam they were stubborn in their denial. So in the next verse that is said, well, Allah and to Saliba, who mostly baton Bhima, put them at ad him. And if not, that a disaster should
strike them for what their hands have put forth. Meaning the kind of actions, the kinds of crimes that these people are committing, and specifically, this is regarding the Arabs at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And what kind of things were they doing, there were certain practices which were not a very common but common enough, meaning that there were people who were doing those kinds of things that everybody did not engage in those crimes, but there were people who, who did engage in those crimes, like for example, murder, burying off, you know, daughters of men, meaning burying them alive. Likewise,
you know, we learn in sort of, in the 30 ages about how they would consume, you know, people's interest
inheritance, that that the strongest male figure of the family would come and take the entire estate of the deceased completely depriving the orphan children or the widow. Any these kind of crimes were common amongst those people and not just words people but against the loss of penalty for any the amount of shidduch that those people were, were committing. You know, the fact that the Carbo was filled with idols or stuff that a lot there were idols, you know, at sofa at almara
people will perform the elf naked, he need to hold on our quwata illa Billah the kind of actions that they were committing What did they deserve mostly baton, you know, a disaster, they were worthy of of punishment because of the kind of actions they were committing.
And so, this was truly Allah subhanaw taala has mercy upon them, that he saved them, he rescued them by sending guidance to them about by sending a messenger to them. And if Allah subhanaw taala did not send a messenger and by the way, he did not have to because Allah subhanaw taala does not owe us anything if he did not and the people were punished, you know in the world or in the hereafter fire kulu then they would say robinair Lola or CELTA Elena Rasul Allah, our Lord Why did you not send us a messenger friend a tub er a attic so that we could have followed your verses when upon them in our meaning, and we could be among the believers. He then the people would say, that, oh, we wish a
messenger had been sent to us. We wish we knew. We wish you know a book had been revealed, so that we would follow its teachings and we would be of the believers and you know, so we would not be punished. And the fact is that now Allah subhanaw taala has sent a messenger but these people are in denial and scrutiny sir I want 65 Allah Panthera says lucilla Mobile Shireen a woman zerene li Allah Kunal Inacio Allahu jetten bar the Rasul that Allah subhanaw taala has sent messengers as bearers of good news and as Warner's why, in order that people do not have against Allah any argument, any excuse on the Day of Judgment, that he or Allah The reason why we, you know, committed ship, the
reason why we committed these crimes is that we never do. Well, no, that's not the case. You did know. Allah sent revelation, not once many times Allah sent but prophets not once many types, fallen murgia a home will help. Next verse, I have 48 fund manager who will help them in Indiana. But when the truth came to them from us, and the truth is referring to the Quran in which there is no doubt at all, now that the truth has come to them from us ALU Lola ot a myth llama ot Mo, sir. Now they say that why is it that he meaning Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has not been given the same as that which was given to us earlier, his Salah, any First of all, the fact that revelation has
been sent to them is a huge mercy because if it had not been sent on the Day of Judgment, later, they would say that they would offer that as an excuse, they no longer have that excuse. Secondly, now that the revelation has come instead of, you know, rushing to believe in it and show gratitude for it, what are they doing? They're, they're coming up with excuses, they are coming up with objections. And, and this is amazing, any there there are people who have so much information and knowledge, you know, at their disposal, yet they are deprived of the guidance of the Quran.
Any they're deprived of the guidance of the Quran in the sense that they, they're not able to believe in it, they don't have to feel.
So they're just stuck in raising objections in finding faults in you know, they're stuck on, on
you know, these, these assumptions that they have made regarding the Quran. And they they formed that as as a justification for not believing in the Quran. So the people of Mecca What did they do? When the Quran when Hulk came to them, they said, How come Mohammed sallallahu Sallam has not been given that which was I was given. So these were some excuses, right that the people of Mohammed and also some excuses that the Jews even made the People of the Book made later on in Medina.
Now what is it that they're that they were referring to that Muhammad Sallallahu artesanal has not been given what Musa was given wealth
First of all, it can refer to the miracles right the miracles that most artists that I was given. The Prophet sallallahu already said it was not given those miracles, the stick of most artists and I'm turned into a snake, the Prophet sallallahu de Sena was not a miracle like right at the hand of most artists and I would glow. The Prophet sallallahu already said his hand did not glow like that. So they said, Well, if Musa was a prophet, he was given all these miracles, he performed all these amazing things. Well, what about you show us something impressive, alright. Or this can refer to the fact that most our listener was given the book
at once, right, he was given the toe rot at once. And Muhammad Sallallahu Urdu Senna was not given the Quran at once, you know, in a written form, right? The Quran was revealed gradually, you know, in portions. So, this was there objection, that How come he has not been given Revelation the same way that Moosa was given revelation? The most I went to today, and he was given the URL where he was given the tablets, and there was writing on it, right. And he brought that to his people. So how come Mohammed sallallahu already sent him has not been given something like that? Lola Oto with Lama Oto Musa Okay, so this is their, their objection? Allah subhanaw taala response. And welcome yuck
photo Bhima booty mo salmon cobble that How dare they demand that which was given to musala his center? Did they believe in it? No, they didn't. I will let me UK food they know disbelieve Bhima in that which butea Musa Musa was given me a blue before?
Who? Who who denied what musar lesson and was given. It was the people of Mecca, right? They denied Mozart Listen, and they didn't believe in him. Because if they believed in Him, they would have followed him, they would have followed his teachings. So if they don't even believe in Him, then why are they demanding similar miracles that he was given? It doesn't make sense. They they don't believe in musar Listen, I'm and yet they demand from Muhammad Sallallahu already sent what was given to Mozart.
Secondly, a while back furu, did they not disbelief, they over here can be referring to fit our own and his people? Right? That Yes, most artists lamb was equipped with those miracles. But did those miracles convinced fit our own in the sense that was around able to believe simply by seeing those miracles? No. So what's the point? Is it that miracles are not effective? No. The point is, that miracles are not enough for the people who don't want to believe, as Allah subhanaw taala says in sort of Eunice i 101, that Colin Lu Madoff is somehow what he will all say, Look at all that is in the skies, and the earth will not to nilaya to a noodle or uncommon Ly, you may know. But the fact
is that miracles and warnings do not benefit the people who don't believe. And if someone has made up their mind that we're not going to believe in this, then no matter what they're shown, no matter what argument they're given, they're not going to accept it. Right, no matter what facts they're presented, they're not going to accept it. And we see examples of this today. Right? That where people are experts in in denial, right in denying reality.
They're so good at it. That the truth the facts may be right in front of them. But they, but they refuse to acknowledge the truth. They refuse to acknowledge the facts. So what do you think of a miracle that you show them with a stick turning into a snake? That is something that's going to impress them all of a sudden and transform them from inside? No, it's not. So these people have mcha they demand from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the miracles that were given to most artists and them well, the point is, the fact is that they don't believe in that in the first place. So how, how dare they demand from you that which they don't even believe in? And then secondly, the
people at the timer will start listen and didn't believe it, you know, because of those miracles. So what do you think about the people of Makkah, they will believe if they're if they're showing these miracles, all they said, say hi, Ronnie, two books of magic sihon This is the dual of the word sale, two sales two magics two works of magic right? Or by by to say what is mentioned is two magicians who have to learn how to Who are you know, so
supporting each other, who have, you know, aided each other enough that they're working together, we'll call when they said in the colon caffee rune, indeed, we are in both disbelievers we don't believe in either of them. So who said this, who said that these two are works of magic that are supporting each other, and we don't believe in either of them. Now, there's several interpretations to this. The first interpretation is that this is referring to some of the people of the book
that they themselves didn't believe very strongly in what they knew about musala, his Salah from the toilet. And when the Quran came, they denied the Quran as well. And they said that both of these are forms of magic. And by calling it magic, what they meant was this is fake. This is not real, this is untrue. How could they say that if they were from the people of the book, because remember what we discussed earlier, that knowledge existed among them. But guidance was not present. Right, in the sense that, for them being among the People of the Book was a mere identity, and a cultural affiliation. It was not a religious belief. And we see that amongst many people today as well, that
they identify as, you know, they identify as, you know, part of a certain community, but they don't actually believe. Right, so they said that these two meaning the total out in the Quran, they are both magic, right, in the sense that they're both fake, and they're just there to misguide people. We don't believe in that, in either of it. And we seen total belcarra i 101. That almost pantherella says regarding such people that well imagine a homeless woman or in the law, he will suddenly Colima amerihome neighbor daffodil commoner Latina author kita kita de la hora Agha him canola Alamo. The basically when a messenger came to them, confirming what was with them. They a group of them through
the book of Allah behind their backs as if they didn't even know. Meaning they pretended as if the book of Allah didn't even exist. So they disregarded Muhammad Sallallahu Urdu sentiment they disregarded what they had before meaning the total, they rejected both right?
Or two magics or two magicians, meaning they said the Messiah rune or moose and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam suffered a lie. You mean they said that both of them were magicians who had Tila hurrah, you know, basically assisted each other in order to perform their magic in order to misguide people. So we don't we don't believe in either of them. So this is one opinion and other opinion is that,
that the people who said this were actually the people of Makkah. All right, the people of Makkah said in their denial of the Prophet sallallahu already sent him and moosari he sent him that both of them Moosa and Muhammad Sallallahu already within them are from the same line of magic thought was an ancient form. And the Quran is a is a newer version of staford Allah and
and yet, now they were saying that you know, if Muhammad Sallallahu already Islam is true, he should bring the same miracles as that of Mozart, he said, You know, they say that in contact Ruben fecund the Quran, right if you're going to lie, and you know, if you're going to,
you know, be in so much denial, then at least be intelligent, right?
At least remember all all all, all the details, right about what you said previously, and etc. So, any these people what were they doing? They were contradicting themselves, right, the people of Makkah with these kind of objections that they were raising. There is another opinion about this part of the idea said that this was actually fit our own and whose people fit our own set to Moosa said about Musa alayhis salam that these two are magicians who Musa and Harun or Musa hammoud and the magicians, right? That all of them are working together. Okay, it's all a scheme in order to overthrow me. And this has mentioned in the Quran in Surah Taha is 71 that Allah omentum the who
Kabbalah and add another component The Magician's believed in lusardi Sinan for their own set that How dare you believe before I allow you in the hula Kabira kumala Dr. Oliver kusa. This one meaning Moosa Elisa is just your elder who, who is the one who has actually taught you all of this magic, and he said that you guys are working together. You guys are scheming
Together, so any that fit our own and his people did not believe by seeing miracles. So what do you think the people of McCurry are going to believe? When Why are they demanding those miracles anyway when they when they didn't believe in moosari center or what he brought. So it is said to be kitabi Minar in the law, say then bring a scripture from Allah, that is who I am in whom I which is more guiding than either of them, meaning, you don't want to believe in the Torah, you don't want to believe in the Quran, okay, bring something else then bring something else. And you know, what, if it is offering more guidance, better guidance, guess what, aktiviert who I will follow it. If it's
from Allah, you know, something to guide people, I will follow it in quantum saw the clean if you should be truthful, meaning if you claim that the Quran is magic, the lot is magic there to mislead people, then you know, what, bring something else, give me give me another, you know, book that has come from Allah, so that I can follow it in quantum scientifically, but there's no way that they could bring anything like the Quran or something by force from Allah. And even if there wasn't a third book, they would respond in the same way it because if they rejected the Torah, and now they're rejecting the Quran, then if there is any other book, they would reject that also. So it is
said for lm yesterday bhulekh. So if they do not respond to you, meaning they will, they don't bring something you know, from Allah, and they will not be able to farlam annamaya to be Runa who are harmed, and you should know that these people are only following their own desires. What is the plural of hella? Meaning these people are not seeking the truth, right? They're not seeking the truth. They're only following their desires. And this shows us that, you know, when a person does not respond to the messenger, he does not believe and they're just bringing objection after objection, then such a person is not seeking guidance, they're actually seeking, they're actually
following their desire and following the desire, is that something reasonable? Because, you know, sometimes, especially in this day and age, in either there's a lot of emphasis on just do what you feel like, right? Just just, you know, you're living for yourself, forget about people forget about everybody in everything, just do what makes you happy. Is this right? Is this the right concept, because the last panel, Florida says women have been looming many tabara Hawa and who is more astray than the person who follows his desire be lady who the mean Allah, without guidance from Allah, meaning, every desire is not evil.
If a person is following their desire, and that desire isn't, you know, it aligns with with guidance from Allah in the sense that it does not contradict what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed than following a desire like that is permissible, you know, for example, a person wants to they really, you know, want to date they desire they crave a certain food, right? So, eating that food, Is it wrong? No, you just check the guidance that Allah has revealed is that food halon if it is Hana, go ahead Bismillah enjoy it and say Alhamdulillah and you will be rewarded for it. Right? So, that kind of desire fulfilling it is permissible. But if a person has the desire to, you know, eat something
which is unlawful or dress in a way that Allah has not allowed or that Oh, that is in clear contradiction to the teachings of Allah, then following that desire, be lady who the this is what this is pure misguidance because it is said woman, Allah Lu who could be more astray than such a person? And the answer is that no one meaning this person is definitely very much astray. So we have to check ourselves that are we seeking the truth? Or are we pursuing our desires because there's only two options. Either a person is upon guidance or a person is following their desires and we need to check ourselves It is said in the law hilarya do como by the mean Indeed Allah does not
guide the wrongdoing people who are the lovely mean who are the wrongdoing people this is por la la Lim loan over here is stubborn denial and persistence upon that you know, following one's desire, giving preference to one's own wishes. You know what, you know one's own desires all
For the guidance that Allah subhanaw taala has revealed, so such people are deprived of guidance The Book of Allah will be there, but these people don't benefit from it. What are yeah they will love me Allah subhanaw taala protect us that it is said when Ecuador sanella will call and we have repeatedly conveyed to them the the the word and what is meant by the word is the Quran. Now was Salah is a very interesting word was Sunnah from towsley what was what are basically means to join right to to connect to things. So they'll see is to join, for example, different pieces of a rope to connect them together one after the other, so that you have a long rope at the end. Right? So this
is lasagna. Now what is it that has been wasana? I'll call the word meaning the Quran. The Quran was not all revealed at once. It was revealed in portions right piece after piece after piece after piece. It was conveyed gradually,
while awkward was sanella hoon Cole and who is them over here, the people, whether it was the people at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam meaning the Arabs the Qureshi, or it was the People of the Book in Medina, in In either case, the Quran was given gradually, y la la home yet or the Quran in order that they might be reminded, in order that, you know, if something did not strike them previously, perhaps now, when they when they listen to it, when they when they come across a new message, then perhaps that will strike them, perhaps that will transform them. Laurie lomita qarun but it's sad that any the fact that the Quran was given gradually as a mercy to them, right, it was
in their best interest that the Quran be given gradually, they they objected at that, that why is it that the Quran is not revealed at once, and they use that as an excuse to deny the Prophet sallallahu early he was setting them.
And the fact that the Quran was revealed gradually shows the necessity of, you know, staying connected with the book of Allah, that that every now and then a person, learn something of the book of Allah, even if it's not on a daily basis, at least once a week at least once a month any something. Why because when a person is continuously seeking taking from the Quran, then that then a person's you know, a man is nourished, because faith is something that increases and decreases the Prophet sallallahu Sallam compared the believer to the date palm tree. Right and we know that plants, trees cannot survive unless they're given nourishment, whether that is coming in the form of
water or sunlight or whatever. So just like that our faith our email also needs nourishment, and that nourishment comes from the Quran as well. So, make the intention make that firm resolve that you want to stay connected with the book of Allah so that it is a source of continuous guidance for us insha Allah, we will conclude over here subclinical lahoma would be handig shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta stuffie recover autoboot Lake wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
