Al-Baqarah 74-82 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 74-77
I am number 74 to 82.
So Mufasa kulu Welcome. Then your hearts became hardened mimbar the Dallek after that, so Mufasa pulu, Boko minbar de dannic then your hearts became hard. After that the word Thelma means then
and it's a word that is used to show the sequence of events, there is a word that is used to show the sequence in which the events have taken place. So, sum over here indicates that then after the incident of the cow after the dead men coming to life, after seeing this miracle, some then what happened was that for lubicon, your hearts became hard. So, the word Zumba is used to indicate sequence of events.
Similarly, the word filmer is also used to show the increasing seriousness of an action,
how the next action is worse and more serious than the previous.
So Thoma means, then, moreover, despite all of that, what is much worse is that cassette pubblico, your hearts became hard.
So we see that this ayah is directly connected with the previous versus the previous verses, spoke about the incident of the cow. And the fact that the dead man was brought back to life. What happened when the dead man was brought to life? What happened when the Bani Israel saw all of these great miracles,
the Bani Israel did not repent, they did not acknowledge their mistake.
They traveled their profit so much. But still, their hearts were not affected after seeing the clear sense. So so much, then, meaning despite seeing so many things, that should have caused your hearts to soften. Instead of your hearts becoming soft, instead of your hearts becoming humble, instead of your hearts accepting instead of your hearts repenting, what happened. On the contrary process could overcome your hearts became very hard. The word assets is from the root letters of seen well. It is from the root letters are seen well.
But sour is hardness, what is our hardness
basically, the word is used for something that is very thick for something that is very dry. And it is also very tough.
Just imagine something that is very thick, it's not thin, it's not fine. It's not thin like a leaf. But it's thick, like a rock. It's hard. It's tough. It's not tough that you tear the leaf. And it's easy. But you try to break the rock, and it's very difficult. So it's tough, it's solid, and it is also very dry.
It is also very dry, it does not absorb any moisture. It does not take any effect.
If you expose a leaf out in the sun, what happens it will become dry. Similarly, if you pour water on it, if you give water to the plant, what's going to happen to the leaf, it's going to have moisture in it. So we see that leaf or other things they accept change. But something that is very hard, it is dry. So it does not accept any change. It is very thick. It is solid. It is tough. So it's very difficult to alter it. It is very difficult to change it.
So what is it that became hard? What is it that became dry
konu become your hearts. The word kulu is the plural of the word and is used for heart. We have done the word galoob earlier as well. The cool new being in Morocco, in the hearts of the hypocrites is a disease.
The word called literally means to turn about and the heart is called cold. Why? Because the heart never remains the same. It always changes the feelings.
except for when the heart becomes very hard like a rock, then it does not change just as a rock. If you pour water on it, is it going to accept anyone? No, it will break. But it won't accept anything
similar Similarly, a heart that becomes hard, it does not accept anything.
Now the question is, what does it mean by the hardness of the heart? What does it mean by the hardness of the heart?
First, what is that when gentleness, mercy and humility, leave the heart? What is it when gentleness, softness, mercy, compassion, humility, they leave the heart.
Because a soft heart is a heart, which is compassionate.
A soft heart is a heart that has mercy.
A soft heart is a heart that is humble, but a heart, a heart that is very hard. There is no humidity in it. There is no compassion in it. There is no mercy in it. There is no humidity in it.
So the hardness of the heart is to lose the ability to be affected by anything.
It is to lose the ability to be affected by anything. When do you have mercy in your heart. For example, when you see a child crying out of hunger, when you see a child who was lost who cannot find his mother, when you see a person who is hurting a person who is injured, what happens, your heart fills up with compassion and mercy.
Similarly, a soft heart is a heart that is humble. When the person is instructed with something, when a person is advised with something, he accepts the advice. He listens.
But a heart that is hard, loses the ability to be affected by anything at all.
It loses the ability to accept any change, to accept the truth.
So it is as though the heart becomes desensitized. That no matter what happens, nothing affects others.
You try to show love to him. He doesn't change. You try to deal with him harshly. He doesn't listen. You try to threaten, nothing bothers and nothing affects him.
You try to reward him, no feelings. This is the heart that is hard. This is the heart that is arrogant. This is the heart of a person who is very stubborn. Who does not change. So over here, Allah says, So maka Satguru become open he is right you. Yeah, 70 is surreal, then your hearts became hard. When mimbar de vanik. After that,
after what? What is that he can refer to
that it has been understood in two ways.
First of all, it hasn't been said that it refers to all of the incidents that have been mentioned thus far. For example, they're seeing the sea split. They're crossing the sea, they're being saved from their enemy. They're being given money and silver in the desert. They're being given fresh water to drink and benefit from in the desert.
So after seeing all of these miracles, after seeing all of these great signs, what happened? They did not increase in their obedience. They did not repent to Allah. They did not show gratitude for the blessings. And as a result, their hearts became hard.
Secondly, it has been said that their liquor over here refers to the incident of the cow that after seeing the dead person come to life, after seeing that no matter how much they question. Eventually, they had to obey the command.
After seeing the dead man come to life, after that, their hearts became hard. If you think of it, what should have happened? After witnessing the many blessings and favors of Allah, what should have happened? After seeing the dead man come to life? What should have happened? They should have turned to Allah.
They should have showed gratitude to them. They should have acknowledged their mistakes. They should have repented for not implementing the command right away.
They should have repented for asking one question on top of another question they should have
prevented for having trouble their profit.
They should have accepted that it was their fault. But what did they do? instead?
They did neither of these things. They did not show gratitude, as we learned earlier, that when they were given money and silver, instead of showing gratitude, they said, We don't want this, we want something else.
Instead of showing gratitude to the last panel data for having saved them from the federal, what did they do? They made the caf and they began worshiping it.
So instead of acknowledging their mistakes, instead of regretting instead of repenting, what did they do, they became stubborn. And the result of that was that their hearts became hard. They would not accept any advice, any admonition that was given to them.
Any command that was given to them, they would not accept it.
Now what happens when a person's heart becomes hard?
What happens when a person's heart becomes hard? Think of it.
They deviate from the way of Allah. What else just imagine a hard hearted person? What are they going to do?
They become very arrogant, it becomes very hard for them to accept their own mistakes. They repeat the same mistakes again, and again, they don't learn from their mistakes. What else?
The I out of a lot, they don't affect such a person anymore. They don't have compassion, and so they treat others badly. What else?
They're hostile towards others.
Basically, when a person's heart becomes hard, he loses his desire for doing anything that is good.
Whether it is good towards people, or it is good, in obedience to almost
he has no interest in doing good, nothing affects him.
He just follows his own desires.
He doesn't care about something that would benefit others something that would harm others, he doesn't care. He has no desire to do anything good.
And when does this exactly happens when a person does not benefit from the is that he sees
when a person does not benefit from the IRS that he witnesses?
Because alika Yuriko iottie la la casa de Lune.
But even despite seeing the Iet if a person does not benefit, as a result, his heart becomes hard. And he loses any interest in doing good.
If you remember, there are two types of if I add that are konia. And I add that or should or
konia. I include the creation of a lot, for example, if there's an earthquake, there is a flood. There's a thunderstorm. All of these are what signs that Allah subhanaw taala shows us, the dead men was brought back to life. These are what signs that our last panel shows.
So a soft heart is the heart of a person who when he sees these if he turns to Allah.
When a person sees these is what does he do? He turns to Allah, in repentance,
in seeking forgiveness, in remembering him.
When a person sees the sunrise, when a person sees a sunset, when a person sees the night sky, who does he remember? Who does he think of a loss of paradise?
But the heart hearts, the person sees all of these signs, he witnesses all of them, but he does not think of Allah. He doesn't think of repenting to Allah.
So I better go knee.
And second type of is better shuttering, for example, the verses of the Quran.
So those people with soft hearts, what happens when they listen to the Quran? When they listen to the Quran, it affects them.
When when they have soft hearts, for example, the king of Abyssinia, the negus, or that particular time of the times of profit sort of all of a sudden, what happened when Jeff would only learn who he recited sort of Madame in front of him.
He began to cry.
Was he a Muslim at that time?
But he began to cry.
We learn in the Quran why it SME Roma, Lynsey de la suely Tara or uniform Duffield, Amina Dunmurry, mimma Auto formula to help
and when they hear what has been revealed to the messenger, you see, their eyes overflowing with tears because of what they have recognized of the truth.
So the soft heart the person when he listens to the Quran, it affects him
but the heart heart, he listens to the Quran. He studies the Quran but the Quran
does not affect him?
And instead, what does he do?
What does he do? He begins to question he begins to doubt, he begins to object. Why this? And what's the purpose of this? What's the point of this? They begin to dispute.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, this is a headache and telemovie that do not speak a lot without mentioning Allah.
What is the Hadith?
Do not speak a lot, without mentioning a lot.
Do you understand? Can you think of this? Can you picture this? Sometimes we're talking for an hour, an hour or two, we just sit and talk and talk and talk. And we don't even mention.
We don't even say words like in child loss, or Alhamdulillah.
He said do not speak a lot without mentioning of love. A lot of words, without mentioning a lot, produce hardness of the heart.
So one reason for the hardness of the heart is when a person does not benefit from the eyes of Allah. Another reason for the hardness of the heart is when a person talks a lot without mentioning a lot. When a person talks a lot without mentioning a lot. So in other words, when a person does not remember a lot much
when there's a gap between a person and his creator, when there's a gap between a person and his Lord, when there is no connection between the two. When a person does not remember his Lord, as a result, what happens? The heart becomes hard. And this is a hadith that is mentioned in Timothy.
So Allah says to the bunny, Australia, so mokulua commonbond is Alec. Then after that your hearts became very hard. How hard did their hearts become? Fair here country.
So it was like hedgerows like the stones like the rocks.
The word ijarah is a plural of the word hedgehog.
It is a plural of hedgehog.
We have done this word earlier as well. But taco narrow Lottie Makoto, NASA, what do I need to translate this?
From that I don't need to translate that.
The stones in human beings will be the fuel of hellfire. So fire can Hijaz. So they are like stones? What does it mean by that?
That your hearts have become so hard, that in their hardness in their toughness, they are like rocks. Just like a rock is very hard. It is very tough. It's difficult to break it.
It doesn't accept any change. Similar is a state of your heart.
But remember, we're here that it doesn't mean in the physical sense your hearts have become like rocks, not in the physical sense. But in the intangible sense in the mind, we sense that their hearts have become so hard they have turned away from the truth, being arrogant towards the truth. So far, you can see Jarrah, they are like rocks.
Now, of the hardest things that we know of that exist on the earth, what are the rocks
Diamonds are also very hard.
Over here, you notice that Allah says your hearts have become hard, like rocks. Iron is also very hard, isn't it? metals, they're also very hard, but they melt.
But rocks do not melt.
They become few, but they do not melt.
This is why Allah says they have become like rocks in their hardness.
But not just like rocks, oh, a shadow,
or even more intense in hardness than what?
than rocks, that your hearts have become harder than rocks, in their hardness. The word Oh gives the meaning of words.
And sometimes it gives meaning a variety that this or this.
And sometimes it gives the meaning of rather instead of
and over here, Oh give the meaning of rather instead of
that, no, they're not just like rocks, but instead, they are more intense in their hardness.
The word assured is from the root fetters chain that that shed.
Shed literally means to tie a firm and strong not.
What does it mean
to tie a very firm and strong knot? It's very difficult to open.
So fresh deed is to make something strong
to intensify something
so in touch with what is studied in the Quran, what is the seeds
that you intensify the sound of that particular letter? Right? So I shut the word that you see over here means more intense, more severe, worse,
worse than rocks in a certain in hardness. What does it mean by that?
What does it mean by that?
But your hearts have become harder than rocks, in their hardness in their intensity. Because rocks, even, they're very hard. What happens? They break. If they don't melt, at least they break.
If water continues to drip on the rocks, what happens? What happens?
You see holes through them, isn't it? There's an earthquake, there's a landslide, different things happen and the rocks they change. But the heart heart of a person, nothing changes. Nothing affects
hard rocks, despite their hardness, they still have some kind of fire in them. They still have some kind of benefit in them, as we will see in the air.
But the heart heart, neither is it soft, nor does it have any holes in it, it does not produce any benefit.
So in other words, you have reached the extent the height of the hardness of the heart, you have become completely heedless, and you do not care anymore.
We're in nominal hedgerows and indeed from the rocks, meaning of the heart stones. There are these kinds of stones. What kind of stones? llama surely that which my over here gives meaning of unready meaning there are sub stones, which yet a third gentleman will unhealth rivers gush forth out of them.
The word yetta for Judo is from fair Gemara
we have done the word fun Federer from the same route. But you're literally is when something breaks when something cleaves when something is fit at a huge scale.
So over here, you get a fad journal, meaning they break apart. And as a result what happens? The water it just gushes for
when water gushes forth out of somewhere, what does that show
the great quantity of the water that the water is in abundance. So yet the Fed gentlemen who unhealth rivers gush forth out of these rocks? And how is it Florida? Now,
what is another use for a river? Notice river has been used, not just small streams, but rivers. What does that show
that there are some rocks when they break what happens water gushes forth through them.
And as a result, there is a river that is formed, their streams that are formed, so much water comes out. And remember that water signifies goodness
because water benefits the human beings and it also benefits the land. It also benefits the creatures.
So rocks Yes, they're hard, but they have some benefit in them.
Rivers come forth out of the rocks. There are other rocks were in there and indeed minha from it meaning from the rocks lemma surely that which yes Shaku they split asunder, it's split asunder? Yes, shokaku is from Shin of shock. And shock is when something breaks apart, when something is split.
And in particular, this word is used for when something very hard or when something solid when something that is very tough, that breaks.
You can ever think of that thing breaking. shock is when something unthinkable breaks. For example, this word is used for one shot cotton farmer, and the moon has been split. Can you ever think about the moon splitting, breaking? You see it every day you can ever even think of it but when shuttle comma so it is when something very hard, something very solid, it breaks apart, and it's unthinkable that it will ever break.
So similarly, there are huge rocks and you can never think that they would ever break. But Allah says despite their huge size despite their hardness what happens these rocks they break they don't stand against the water.
And as a result what happens via Raja min Hola. And then the water comes out of it.
For example a Musashi Santa, he struck his death on the rock What happened? 12 Springs
So similarly there are rocks, which break.
And notice over here this is different from the previous type of rocks that were mentioned.
The first type of rocks what happens? Water gushes forth out of them and forms rivers. What does that show?
A lot of good comes through them.
The second type of rocks are which kind of rocks. A lot of good doesn't come forth, but a little bit does. Fire human humor, a little bit of water, things come sports, they don't stand against the water.
And the third type were in there and indeed men have from it meaning from among the rocks. lemma surely that which Yes, it falls down out of what minha Shatila out of the fear of Allah. Yeah, beautiful is from her the hobo. We have done this word earlier. It means when something falls down or when something comes down from above, when something descends from above. So yeah, they'll come in here Shatila, they fall down, the rocks fall down out of what? out of the fear of Allah, meaning at least they move.
At least they move. Even if so much water doesn't come forth through them. At least they move if there's an earthquake, there is a landslide. At least you will see them move.
But notice over here our law says that they fall down out of what fear law.
So our question is from their newsletters call Shane. Yes. Horse Shane. Yes. Harsha is fear. How is also fear. But what kind of fear is question Harsha is such fear that is in the person's heart out of someone's greatness.
It is because of the greatness of the other.
A person is in all of him.
So it is immense fear due to immense respect, or honor.
This is the type of fear that questions
and this type of fear is only developed through knowledge.
Only when you're aware of the greatness of the one whom you fear, then you will have fear of,
Only when a person is aware of the greatness, then only you will fear?
Which is why Allah says in the Quran, the inner Mayor shall love him and everybody
that indeed it is a knowledgeable ones, from among the servants of Allah who actually fear him.
So there are rocks that at least fall down from the fear of Allah. Which fear is this fear of Allah soprano goddess greatness, fear of a loss of power without us greatness.
So this third type of rock, the third type of rocks, what are they, for example, there's a landslide, there's an earthquake, well, there is a glacier that is melting, what happens, rocks fall down.
And we know that rocks they fall down why? because of some natural causes. So for example, an earthquake, gravity, different things, different reasons. But over here, Allah says that they fall out of the fear of Allah,
they fall out of the fear of a loss of
other reasons, maybe there as well. But primarily they fall out of the fear of Allah.
Allah says, woman love will be lost. And Allah is not at all unaware. I'm not that muddled from that which you do.
Below fitting bow over here is extra. So it gives a meaning of at all in the least. And often is from the roof letters, wind fat lamp, overflow,
wind fat lamp or flat.
What does workflow mean, unawareness.
Of that is unawareness.
So often is one who is unaware. But hafla is not just unawareness or lack of knowledge, but also is also being negligent towards something, being heedless towards something that you know of it, but you don't care.
So where Allah says that Allah is out of office, of what of what you do, what does he mean by that? That he knows about your actions?
And just because he doesn't catch you right away doesn't mean that he doesn't care about your actions? No, he's only giving you rest bite until a particular time.
So what does it mean by this verse? What does it mean by these different types of rocks that are mentioned over here? What do we learn from this verse? First of all, we see in this ayah that some hearts they are very hard, and they are harder than rocks.
Because rocks despite their hardness, they do bring out some goodness
but the hard heart does not bring any goodness
Heart Heart does not return to Allah does not well wish for people does not have good feelings for other people.
And generally, people do this. Or generally people don't wish well for others. Why? Because they want their own personal benefit.
Or they will not wish good for other people why they will not wish well for other people because they want some, you know, some good only for themselves. They don't want good for other people at all.
So we see that hard hearted people are very self centered. They're very arrogant.
They're not affected by the problems of others, they don't care.
And because such people they are so hard, like rocks, therefore, they will become the fuel of the hellfire.
But the canavalia t wakulla. NASA Well, hey, Jarrod,
the fuel of the fire which is going to be people and stones. So if there is a person whose heart is so hard that it's like a rock, it doesn't change, nothing affects him, we will end up as garbage as trash
as a few of the hellfire.
Now the question is, how do we cure heart hearts?
If a person finds hardness in his heart, what should he do?
What should a person do? We learned that a person's heart becomes hard when he does not benefit from the
right, or the person does not benefit from the idea. So the first thing to do is that a person should deliberately and consciously recite, and ponder over the
over the eyes of
and recite and ponder again and again.
If we find that we listen to the verses, and they don't affect us, what should we do? recite more and more, read more and more, reflect more and more, don't just read over, but reflect more and more. Remind yourself that Allah is speaking to you. So this is the first thing that we have to do.
Just as you know, Iraq, that is very hard. And if you wish to break it, do you just you know, try to break it with your hand just once? No. It's sent into factories, and so much is done to cut the rocks through their cuts with water. So one of the first things to do is to recite and ponder over the ayatollah.
Another thing that must be done is that a person should think about and realize the greatness of Allah. Because we see that some rocks, they don't break.
Right? But what happens, they at least fall. Why? Because of the fear of Allah.
So a person should think about and realize the greatness of the law.
Another thing that we must do, in order to soften our hearts is that we should be kind towards those who are weak in the society.
Many times we become hard hearted. Why? Because we don't see people who are living in difficulty. We've never seen poverty, we've never experienced it. And we've never seen it.
We haven't seen people who are suffering from sickness. We haven't seen people who are suffering from homelessness, go and help out such people find out such people help them out. Like a person, once he complains, the profits are a lot isn't about the hardness of his heart. What did he tell him?
What did he tell him that passed your hand over the head of an orphan, see an orphan child, Doctor him, speak to him, give him something, and it will affect your heart. So another thing that we must do is that we should be kind towards those who are weak in the society. Another thing that we can do is visit those people who are sick, because it softens the heart. Another thing that we must do is that we should remember that, because death is the destroyer of pleasures,
that is the destroyer of pleasures.
So we see that the hardness of the heart is a very dangerous thing. And if we find that our hearts our hearts, that a person is crying to us, and we don't have any compassion for them, that the verses of life are being recited and we don't change, then what should we do? We should worry about softening our hearts and these are some of the things that we can do to soften our hearts. Another thing that we see in these verses is that there are three types of rocks that are mentioned
three types of rocks that are mentioned. And we see that there are three types of people as well.
There are three types of rocks and there are three types of people as well.
The first type of rocks are those that through which water gushes forth and it forms into the
waterfalls into rivers. So we see that there are some people who do a lot of good,
who do a lot of good. Rivers come out of them.
abundant good comes out for them.
So what should we do?
What should we do?
avail every opportunity to do good
avail every opportunity to benefit those who are around us. We see that a river, it has so many benefits, right? It doesn't just form into a lake into a pool, and benefit only those people who are living around it, but rather it continues to flow and benefits, miles and miles of land
1000s and 1000s of people 1000s and 1000s of creatures.
So similarly, we should be like a river that we benefit others.
We see that the water it gushes forth with speed. So what should we do also, we should rush to that which is good.
We learned from the Hadees that hydro ness Mayan foreigners, the best of people are those who benefit others. And we can benefit others in two ways by doing that, which is going to help them
and also by removing that which could harm them
by removing that which could harm them. So for example, when we use the washroom, making sure that it's left in a good state,
the toilet seat is clean, we have flushed, there is no tissue paper on the floor. But we have wipe the counters dry
that we leave the slippers at the door and not just somewhere in the washroom or take them away from the washrooms. So doing good to people is of two types. One is that you actively do something that is going to benefit others for example, a person is thirsty, bring water to them.
Another is that a person removes that which harms other people. So hydro nurse, mindfulness. So the first type of people are those who benefit others. There is abundant good coming out of them. But sometimes we might think that why should we be just like servants to other people? Or why should we be used by other people? Sometimes we think that other people are taking advantage of us. They don't do something themselves and the thing that we should be doing everything for them. But a believer is someone who thinks positively. When we're doing something good. We're not doing it for the sake of people. We're doing it for the sake of of loss.
So when we do good, don't expect reward from people expect reward from Allah.
So the first type of people are Who? Those who benefit others.
The second type of rocks, what are they? What type of rocks are they?
That they split open, they don't stand up against the water, they move away, and water comes forth, but not as much water as a river. Just yes choco pie approach human wholeness.
So what does that show that if we cannot bring too much good to people, then just do what you can at least just make sure you are a means of peace for other people. It means of comfort for other people, you're not harming others, at least benefit the people a little bit, how much ever you can.
One is that a person is actively engaged. How can I help this person? How can I help that person? But if you're too busy, that you don't have time to do that, then what should you do? Do what you can do whatever that you can afford. Another type of people are who the rock is Yamato minha Shatila, they fall out of the fear of Allah.
So we see that sometimes there may be a person who becomes arrogant.
There may be a person who falls prey to his own ego, who becomes arrogant.
And sometimes we see that we're doing good to everybody. We're being kind to everybody. We're being nice to everybody. We have good thoughts about everybody. But there's just one person. We cannot tolerate them. We see them and our doors of goodness they close. Right? It happens. Sometimes it's the feelings of jealousy. Sometimes it's a feeling of anger, of revenge. So our doors of goodness, they close when we see them.
But Allah says over here, yes, people mean when
they fall down, also the fear of Allah. So a believer when he's doing good, if his ego comes in the way, what should we think
we should fall out of the fear of Allah.
I'm not doing good because of him. I'm doing good because of Allah. Allah loves
So it is to break ourselves, break our ego bend, show humility. Why? out of what, out of the fear of Allah. And this shows that a person has truly recognized almost a penalty. Sometimes we might think that if we become humble in front of others, you know, we are humiliating ourselves. But the fact is that the one who becomes humble, he's becoming humble in front of Allah and mentor, whether they let whoever becomes humble for the sake of Allah, what is going to do? Or firewalla, Allah is going to give him honor, Allah is going to elevate his status.
So three types of people have been mentioned over here. And we have to see where we are.
Rather, we have to see what we want to be now.
We have to see what we want to be.
Let's listen to the recitation
do you notice how the woman love will be left?
Alone, not unaware of what you do? There are three types of people. One is doing a lot of good. One is doing just a little bit. And another, when his ego comes in the way he falls out of the fear of Allah. No matter what kind of actions we do, who knows about those actions? Allah knows about them.
So don't care about what people have to say, what people think. Do people appreciate my actions or not? Think about who? Allah.
Allah is aware of what we do. We are doing it for his sake, and he will reward
it number 75 effort our former owner, do you all desire and you may know Lacan that they would believe for you? Do you or believers, do you desire that they should believe for you? effort, Otto morona.
This Hamza is of Estefan, interrogation, to question
for means then, and settlement Runa you all desire, you all hope for greedily.
Delta morona is from farmer for meme is for means rain.
And Farmar is used for a desire
or it is used for an intense desire.
It is to crave for something too long for something to desire greedily for something.
It is also said that the word Thoma is used for hope, when a person hopes intensely for something to happen, or to receive something.
So ephah tomar una do then you all wish.
What does it mean by then over here? And who does you all refer to?
Your over here refers to the believers, that oh you believers, or you Muslims, the addresses of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the companions that do you wish, then what does then mean over here? Meaning despite this fact, what was mentioned in the previous is that the hearts of the bunny Australia have become very hard. And now they will refuse to accept any change. If despite seeing the photo they denied, do you think that they will believe in the Quran?
If despite knowing the fact that Allah is the one who saved them? They worship the past? Do you think they're going to believe in the Quran?
If they gave so much trouble to Musashi Salaam they question him one after the other.
They made his life so difficult. Do you think they're just gonna listen to the profits or a lot or something?
No. So first off of our owner, dude, then all you believers do you wish Do you desire? Are you so eager? I mean owner con that they would believe for you. The word you know is from Eman Hamza me noon. Eman is belief. And remember whenever the word amen in whichever form is followed by
Word lamps, it gives a meaning of listening to someone confirming what they say.
So, you may know Lacan, meanings that the Bani Israel will confirm the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu.
So what does he mean by this is
there's a brief background to this is when the Prophet said a lot of the Southern migrated to Medina, a lot of the people became believers they unsought, the original inhabitants of Medina, they became Muslims.
You see, before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came, in Medina, there lived the Arabs. And there lived the yahood, the Bani Israel
and there was always conflict between the two, between the Arabs as well. But the yahood also, there was a conflict between them and the parents. Okay, this is before Islam
and the Bani Israel they would tell the Arabs that soon we will have a prophet who will help us overcome you
and we will overcome you or we will be victorious over you. So they will tell the Arabs that we will have a prophet and we will be dominant we will be victorious.
So when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came, and the Arabs they realized that he was indeed the messenger, they believed in him immediately.
And they expected obviously, that the bunny Australia would also believe because we can Oh yesterday Hola. They would seek victory through this prophet mean they will say that a prophet will come and we will become victorious over you.
So the Muslims, they expect anything you hold would also would believe, but they did not believe.
Why is the Bani Israel not believe? What was the main reason for they're not believing in the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
he was from the Bernie is smart. And not the bunny is slightly you.
Remember, the two sons of your Cobra says
he was among the Arabs, he was not from among them.
So they did not believe in him out of jealousy.
Now when they did not believe in Him, the people would wonder that these are the same people who tell us that a prophet is going to come and we're going to believe in Him, we're going to follow Him and we will become victorious. And now these are the people who are not believing in that Prophet. So is our belief correct?
You wonder if somebody tells you when such and such happens, I will do it.
And when such and such happens, and they don't do it, you wonder if that was really what they were referring to. You begin to doubt. And you begin to wonder, why is it that this person has not done such and such action when they said that they will do it when the truth is so clear.
So this was the dilemma that the believers were in.
So this ayah was revealed. And the Muslims, they're being told that it's not that there is a problem with the truth.
The messenger is indeed the true messenger. The Koran is indeed the word of Allah
and the money Australia, they know the fact that indeed he is the Messenger of Allah, but they're not believing. Why
do you think they would believe when they denied Masada center when they denied the thought? Or they said, London minella could have done or LA Jara when they began worshipping the calf when they did that, and then their hearts became so hard. Do you think that they would believe in the profits are long this summer? No. So over here, the Muslims are being reassured that these people are not going to believe
and this happens at the beginning of the earth, this Hamza is Japan is for the purpose of is divided, what does is divide me to take something far. So it is as if to show to the believers that their belief is very unlikely that the belief of the bunny Australian is very unlikely. They are far from believing.
Do then you believe meaning? Don't Don't even think about it, there will never become believers give up or give up hope that they will ever believe
also they will not believe Why else there is another reason that Allah Subhana Allah gives over here
and what reason is that,
that Wakata can African while in fact, there is a group main home from among them, but he is from the roof fetters fell off. Fuck is to divide to separate for this is a group that is separate from the main body.
So there is a group from among them from among who, among the money Australia which group is this? This group is referring to the group of their scholars
of their religion.
Leaders of their rabbis.
What do they do? Yes morona they listen to they hear yes morona is from some seen memory. So they listen to what do they listen to? What do they hear calama law the speech of Allah.
Lord Coronavirus from the road Cypress cath lab neem kalama is a word and column is speech that which a person says that which one says literally, the word calamus means to injured, to give a wound to injure or to give a wound. And if you think about it, some speech or some words, they hurt you really bad, the injuries, the wound you
and also think of it an injury or a wound is the effect of a blow that was very hard.
It's the effect it's the imprint. So, similarly, some words that are very effective that they leave a deep mosque, in a person, they leave a deep impression in a person. So the word Quran is not just used for negative speech, but it is used for such speech that leaves a deep impression.
So they listen to the speech of Allah.
What does it mean by this, that a group of the Bani Israel meaning the scholars or rabbis, they listen to the speech of Allah, the speech of Allah over here has been understood in several ways. We will look at the first meaning and then we look at other interpretations. First one has been set the cunnamulla speech of Allah refers to the total,
because the rabbi's, they would read the Torah, they would study the soul, they would listen to the tower.
But someone then what do they do meaning after listening to the speech of Allah, what do they do you have the foreigner who they twist it, they alter it, they distort it mimbar edema or colluvial, after they understood,
the word you have the foreigner is from hell or or
any other words from the same root
help, what has helped me letters, and I told you that the literal meaning of the word help is the edge or the brink of something, the edge or the brink of something, when you reach the edge of something, what happens?
There is a bend, isn't it. So for example, if you reach the edge of the cliff, there is a bend, and you fall if you continue to go, right. Also, if you look at the roof, the Arabic rules the way that they're written, they bend a lot.
So, how literally is the brink, the edge, the margin of something, and it is also used for bending something.
And hair loss as you heard referred to hurry is the word that you see over here the form that you see over here, however, is to bend something, to turn something from one direction to the other,
from one direction to another. This is what have often means what does it mean to bend something from one direction to another.
So, for example, you have played or something like that, which is straight and you bend it,
you bend it, you bend it shape, you bend its direction. So this is the literal meaning of the word.
And when the word head office is used for words,
when it is used for words, when it is used for speech, it means to change or to alter the speech. What does it mean, to change, to alter to distort the speech of someone because Hello face to bend something from one direction to another. The words were different. And the person he bends them, he changes them he distorts them. And many times the speech of a person is changed just by a slight bend
just by a slight difference.
For example, sometimes just by the difference of Obama, the meaning would change completely.
For example, if you say can llama la who Moosa What does it mean? That Allah spoke to Musa
but if you say can llama la ha, Musa, it means Musa spoke to of LA.
So sometimes the speech of a person has changed how? By bending it by distorting it just slightly. It's just the difference of Obama. That's it. Column Allahu calama ma ha, just a slight difference. So
Studies of color is to change it is to alter it is to distort someone's speech.
It is to make a word or speech turn from its position. Okay? It is to turn the speech or to turn the word from its position and give it a wrong meaning, give it a wrong significance.
And remember that the sheaf of words is of two types.
When it comes to altering, or changing, or distorting someone's speech, it is of two types.
The first type is destiny. If left we're decorative, lovely, lovely are comes from love, what does love mean? Word.
So it is to alter or to change the words that someone has uttered, that someone has spoken. And how is that done?
Sometimes by omitting part of the speech, for example, you just take out one word, sometimes it is done by adding a word. Sometimes it is done by changing a word or sentence. Sometimes it is done, as we saw earlier, just by changing one symbol,
So the first of all, is definitely one of the words, to change the rules to alter the hook to delete to add more to edit. This is what that leaf includes.
And over here, what do we learn that the bunny Australia, the scholars, they would alter the words of the Torah, they would change the words of the Torah.
And this is something that even some Muslims do today.
They change the words of the client.
For example, we read in sort of
all in math and overshadows the profits or a lot of sudden he is told to say that indeed, I am only a human being.
And there are some people who say, that number over here, it doesn't mean indeed only but it means indeed not I am a human being.
Indeed, I am not a human being.
What is this? This is changing the words so as to give a completely different meaning. And remember that the language of the Quran is such that you can not tamper with it. It is grammatically incorrect to take that meaning. grammatically it is incorrect. You go to any linguist even if he's not a believer, he will tell you that that is an incorrect interpretation of the language. So first of all, it feels lovely to change the words.
Then, the second type of Dutch leaf is Marnie
Marnie, Marnie is from Martina What does monami meaning.
So, it is to pervert or it is to give a wrong interpretation to the words to give the wrong interpretation, to words or to speech.
For example, sometimes people just take a statement out of the context.
And when you look at that statement out of context, it gives a completely different meaning.
For example, in the Quran, we read, let the Cabo salata with anthem tsuchiura do not even go near the Salah when you are in the state of intoxication.
So if you just say that a horrible salata
don't even go near solar. What does that mean? don't pray.
So that leaf maranoa is done? How? By giving a completely incorrect, out of context, incorrect interpretation to the words,
incorrect interpretation to the woods.
If you just take somebody else's book,
and you modify it, and you try to publish it again, what's going to happen?
Are you going to be prosecuted for copyright infringement?
So over here, what were they doing? You're hardly foreigner who Yes, morona Kala Mama, they would listen to the speech of Allah to the words of Allah. And then they would alter them, they will distort them in both ways, they would literally distort the words of the seller. And they would also distort the meaning the implication, the interpretation of the text of the dollar.
Sometimes the words would be kept exactly as they are, but the interpretation would be completely incorrect.
So you have a funeral. Now, sometimes, a person may do this out of mistake, or a person really doesn't understand. Right? For example, the person didn't realize that there was a dama on a lot and he reads it as that is what that
is a mistake. Okay? But over here, they're making this distortion. They're changing. They're twisting the words how
mimbar the Mercado after they understood it,
aka Lewis from Arcola. Alcala, Yaki? What does that mean to understand? So after they understood the exact words, the hurdles, the symbols, the implication, the interpretation, they understood the intent of the words. But even then afterwards, they change the words, they altered the words and Allah says, We're homea or the moon while they knew.
What is it that they knew? Well, we are the moon, this is understood in two ways. That first of all, they knew of the fact that they were doing
that they are altering their tampering with the words of Allah.
One is that a person does it without knowledge, as a mistake, but this is that they knew what they were doing. They were doing this deliberately.
Similarly, this is understood as well homie on the moon, and they knew that what they were doing was wrong. They knew that there is punishment, there are consequences for changing the words of Allah.
There is punishment for changing the words of Allah. And this is extreme disrespect, extreme disrespect, and dishonesty, towards the words of a lot of words, a speech of
any person's speech, even if it's a child, and if you miss, interpret, misrepresent the speech, they don't like it.
And we think that the speech of Allah is something so insignificant that we can do whatever we want. We can interpret it the way we want. We can change it the way we want. We can read it the way we want. No, it's the words of Allah, they deserve some respect.
So we see over here, that the Bani Israel, especially the scholars, they would change the words of the Torah, they would miss interpret their own religion. Why? Why would a person do that?
When they don't want to follow what Allah has said,
when they don't want to follow what Allah has said, what the commands of Allah.
So, a person does is when he doesn't want to accept, you know, what has been said as it is and he tries to change it.
Now, as I told you earlier that kurama law has been understood in several ways. First of all, it has been understood as the Toyota.
Secondly, it has been said, that color will not overheat refers to when Allah subhanaw taala spoke to most our listeners
Remember when musasa went around to 70 people a company to remember I told you that incident earlier.
And a lot of trans artists spoke to masala Salaam and they heard the conversation.
And what did they say after that
landmannalaugar has done at alojado. We're not going to believe until and unless we see a low open. So the demanded to see they heard the conversation between musar listener and our last panel.
And it is said that later on when they went back to their people, they changed what they had heard of the speech.
They changed it. They altered it. They misquoted
when they went back to their people, they completely changed the column that they had heard.
This is why their hearts became hard.
I mean, you're hearing the speech, the conversation that is taking place between Allah and His messenger. And if you change that, if you alter that, what does that show?
What does that show that a person does not benefit from anything? He's not scared of anything. He sees the clear signs, yet he doesn't take benefit.
Then there's also been said that column over here refers to the Quran
What does it refer to the Quran?
So they would listen to the Quran. In the gatherings of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they would understand the message of the Quran, the meaning of the verses, but what would they do? They would try to change the words of Allah.
And they will do this sometimes out of mockery.
And they would also try to change the words of the prophets or the Lotus Allah or the words of the companions.
For example, the believers they would say a Salaam where they can what was the use of Assam or like what does that mean may death be upon you.
So when a person develops his habit of not respecting the words of others, not respecting the speech of others, then he doesn't stop at any limit. He goes on to the extent of playing
verses of Allah with the words of Allah. And this is a great crime.
Because if a person changes the words of Allah, what is he doing?
He's misguiding himself. And he's also misguiding so many other people. So what do we learn from this verse?
A photo from our owner and you may know Allah come. First of all, a loss of panel data is comforting the messenger and the believers, that the problem is not with you, the problem is with them.
Also, we learned from this verse, that guidance is in the hands of a lot alone.
Guidance does not come from knowledge.
Or we can say guidance does not only come from knowledge.
Because this furreal the group of people who would change the words of Allah, Who were they,
the scholars, they knew mimbar de Morocco, Lu wahoo, Meola, moon, they understood the words, they knew the meaning of the words, they knew the interpretation of the words, but still, they would change them they would alter them.
So just having knowledge alone, is not equivalent to guidance.
We may have seen many people who have a lot of knowledge, but when it comes to action, they're very far behind.
Because knowledge alone is not enough.
Also, we learned from this verse, that when we read the Quran, when we learn about the commands of Allah, we should accept them as they are.
We should not try to change the words of Allah, we should try to change ourselves. We should not try to change the words of Allah we should try to change ourselves. And if you find it difficult to change yourself, was there enough was slavery was Fela. Tikka was hell. ask Allah to help you.
Because as we will read the Quran, there are many verses that inshallah we will study.
And many times people just get stuck on some verses.
And they want to know, okay, what is that scholar say about this? What is this method say about this? What is that method say about it? Just look at the text of the Quran. And the text of the Quran will tell you the message.
Allah's words will tell you.
So, take the canal of Allah, as it is accepted as it is, don't try to change it don't register, no, but that scholar said this about this. What does the law say about it?
Take it as it is, instead of trying to change the Quran, trying to change the meaning the implication of the Quran, try to change ourselves.
Also, we learned over here that changing the words of ALLAH is a big crime.
It is a big crime, it is forbidden to do so.
Federal law says what either the codina Amano called Amanda.
And when they meet the believers, they say that we have been
another reason why they're not going to believe what is that? What is a Lacuna Coil is from lamb have yet to meet to come across. So when they meet who when they come across all those people who have believed. Now who does they refer to? They over here refers to the hypocrites from among the yahoos from among the many Australians.
Initially, some people front of any Australia, they became believers, as we learned at the beginning of silicon bacala, that initially they became Muslim. And then eventually, they became hypocrites.
Eventually they became hypocrites.
They fell back into their disbelief.
So these hypocrites from among the youth in particular, not just the arrows are from among the many Australians, when they would come across the believers. And when they would sit with them. What would they do? Amanda, they would say we have also believed and obviously they would say this only by their tongues, they would outwardly say that they are also believers.
And in particular, they would say that we have believed in who in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And they're saying that we have believed in the Prophet sallallahu wasallam meant that he asked the messenger whom we were waiting for is indeed Muhammad Sallallahu
Why is there and when Allah He became alone, Babu illa valbonne some of them with others, when they will become alone with each other. What does it mean? That when they would be in private conversations with their own with people who are like them, what does it mean by that? That when these hypocrites they will go back to their leaders, in particular, the scholars from among the bunnies trading,
when these hypocrites when they would go to who to the scholars of the Bani Israel what would happen then
Notice the word color boggling elaborate. We have done these words before, colors from Harlem. Well, color wise to be alone and Kala Ella, is to be alone with someone in order to take counsel.
So when they would be with their leaders, talking to them, discussing with them, what would happen? Although they would say who would say their leaders would say, their scholars would say,
their leaders, their scholars would say to them would say to the hypocrites that are to have dishonor Whom do you inform them? The Masada holla, who earned a copy of that which Allah has informed you have
to have this owner is from hair, that
hair does howdy What does
speech literally means speech, but the word Hadees is basically that which comes into existence, which did not exist before something new, this is the literal meaning of the word howdy something that is new, that did not exist before and now it exists or now it has occurred.
So has is to tell someone of something that they were not aware of before because what is it something that is new?
So it is new information that a person gives to another.
So over here the scholars they would say that are you telling them? Are you informing them who does that refer to the Muslims?
So they call them that are you telling the Muslims of that which Allah has opened upon you, but I have is from fat death has. And such means to open something literally. moustache from the same root is used for a key what is the key used for opening?
So far the heart is to open. So math, what the hell are they can what Allah has opened to you? What does it mean by that?
What Allah has made known to you, what Allah has disclosed to you. What did Allah make known to the Bani Israel?
The Prophet sallallahu
because you see, they knew of the descriptions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the signs of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. When they saw him, they recognized him. They recognized him better than they recognize their own sons
as a loss of prejudice as a problem.
So when they would go and say, okay, yes, we believe. What would that mean? That Yes, indeed, this is the messenger when we were waiting for
so their scholars would reprimand them. What are you doing? You're telling these people that yes, indeed he is a messenger. Are you informing them of what Allah has made known to us, of the prophets or about your son as
we learned in the Quran, in Surah, Allah is number 157. Allah says Allah Vina yet Avi Runa Rasulullah Nabeel omy Allah de donor, whom October in the home sector it will, Indeed, those who follow the messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah, and the gospel.
So they found the description of the profits or about a sudden written in their books, in their scriptures. So when some of them would go and pretend that they're believers, what would that mean that yes, indeed, this is the Prophet whom we were waiting for. So their leaders, their scholars would reproach them, why are you doing this? Why are you doing this? So what does this show that they're scholars knew that he wasn't the messenger.
And the people also knew that indeed, he was a messenger, but they were together, hiding the truth.
Leo had you can be here in that have become so that they argue with you in the presence of your Lord
Leo had you come this lamp over here give the meaning of consequence. That as a result,
as a result, such and such thing will happen.
As a result of what as a result of your informing them, what's going to happen, they are going to argue with who with you. The word you had to come from has gene gene, any other word from the same root? Had? What does hedge mean?
hedge literally means to intend to aim at.
So hedge is a journey that a person intends to undertake. There is a particular goal. He goes to a particular players at a particular time perform certain rituals. So Hajj literally is still intense. The word Mahajan you had UConn that you see over here, it is used for argument
What is it used for argument for dispute.
It is basically used for an argument in which both the parties are trying to overcome each other. Both the parties are aiming at what defeating each other.
The goal is to defeat the other.
The goal is to negate the other.
And it is done by offering evidence by offering proofs
by offering evidence by offering proofs.
So, Leo had you come as a result, they're going to dispute with you be here with it in that have become in the presence of your Lord. But doesn't mean by that said on the day of judgment in the Hereafter, they will hold the proof against you for not following the profit sort of audience.
If you tell the Muslims, that yes, this is indeed the messenger. Tomorrow, they're going to say, said, Oh, Allah, look at these people. They knew that he was a messenger, but they did not believe.
I mean, do you understand where they're coming from?
does Allah not know what's going on?
Of course he knows. So who are they trying to get away from? A lower the profits
or belief? I mean, it doesn't make sense.
So they would say this to the people that Why are you telling them tomorrow, they're going to hold an evidence against you, in the court of Allah, and then you will be in trouble? Well, not believing not following right now is still going to take you into trouble in the hereafter if you don't believe in him. So you had to come here in the lobby come and they would say a solidarity don't don't use your reason. They would say to the hypocrites, don't you use your reason? I mean, aren't you using your mind? Why are you telling us? Aren't you using your mind? Why aren't you believing? falletta they don't have you know, understanding?
So in reality, they're the ones who lack understanding.
They're the ones who lack understanding.
Allah says Allah, Allah Muna, do they not know? And Allahu Allah? Who that Indeed Allah knows. May you serve Luna, whatever they hide, whatever they keep secret, what am I your linoone and whatever they reveal, you said Luna is from Sierra seen rah, rah. And set is to keep a secret in one's heart. What does it mean? To keep a secret in one's heart?
And you're alone is from Brian lamb knows your land is to reveal something,
to show something to make something known
either by actions or by words.
So do they not realize that Allah knows what they're hiding? What is it that they were hiding?
What is it that they were hiding?
The description of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
And whatever is it that they're revealing? What is it that they were revealing?
Only some of it, the hypocrites whatever they would reveal.
And also it shows that what they hide amongst themselves, meaning within their communities, and what they inform my arena whatever they inform meaning what they let the general public know about, especially the scholars. So over here we learned that Allah subhanaw taala knows everything.
Whether a person hides it, by not telling or a person tells some of it.
They are fairly sure shake, nothing is hidden from Allah subhanaw taala.
What do we learn from these verses from these two verses?
Sometimes we feel that we're tricking others. But in reality, we're actually harming ourselves. We're fooling ourselves, we're deceiving ourselves.
Sometimes if a person tries to hide something tries to conceal something, no matter how much he tries, a loss of pangallo exposes it. Allah reveals it. They try their best to hide it. Allah revealed it in the Quran.
Even if we don't accept the truth, even if we deny the truth, the truth will still be truth.
Our denying the truth is only going to hurt us, not the truth. The truth will always remain the truth.
As soon as we learn from these verses is
one more lesson that we learned from these verses is that on the Day of Judgment, people will argue with each other
people will argue with each other and blame each other in front of a philosopher penalty winner in some sort of Zoomer I number 31. So my inner chromium will clear material out of the context assembled, then indeed you on the Day of Resurrection before your North will dispute
Sonico So, the book is called characteristics of the hyper kids by Matt and Nick am and it's an suffrage party.
And okay goes, they think that is the highest or disbelieve and they display their face, they will have acquired a great profit. But how can this be so that when the all thing has unveiled their secrets,
and then inventions from so Mohammed were 29 and 30. But it's those with sickness in their hearts. Imagine that Allah will not expose your mother events, if he wished, we will show them to you. And you will know them by their mark and know them by their speech, Allah knows your reactions. And then it goes on describing the whole thing.
So it was statistically
The point is that basically you think that your actions are going to be hidden, but Allah knows all of them. And regardless of how hard you try to hide them, one way or the other, they're going to be revealed.
So we learned that it is one of the signs of the hypocrites do something like this.
Also, we learn from these verses that intelligence is not in deceiving others.
Intelligence is not in deceiving others, because a person who is intelligent is conscious of Allah.
And if a person thinks that by deceiving others he's, you know, he's very clever. That's not cleverness. In fact, he's very foolish because when you read these aisles, what does that show? foolishness that you think you're being very intelligent by hiding the truth? But in fact, this is foolishness.
Also, we learned from these verses that Allah subhanaw taala knows us inside out
whether we show something or not, whether we say something, or not, whether we express something or not, whether we share something or not.
Allah knows exactly what's going on in our heads. He knows exactly what is going on in our hearts. Exactly what we do at home. Exactly what we do in public, so we should really fear him. We should be conscious of him.
Either. Boom, Isla
de una. De Massa. How long will it
