Are the below Michigan region Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim,

00:00:06 --> 00:00:11

Salat Al Baqarah Ayah number 92 to 103.

00:00:12 --> 00:00:19

What are the Jericho Moosa and musala, Salah had certainly come to you,

00:00:20 --> 00:00:43

he had certainly brought to you, what did he come to you with Bill by unity with the clear proofs, what are called laqad is a combination of lamb mean Surely, and pod meaning in fact, and remember that whenever these two words come together, there is an implied oath right before the code.

00:00:44 --> 00:01:07

So, the code actually means will lie by Allah Surely, in fact. So, we see there are three words that are being used to give emphasis and why is that done to show that what is being stated is definitely effect there is absolutely no doubt about it.

00:01:09 --> 00:01:12

What is being mentioned, is certainly effect

00:01:13 --> 00:01:35

and remember that whenever laqad comes, or whenever there is emphasis in the Quran in this way, that there's so much, you know, emphasis on the certainty of something, there are three reasons for mentioning it. There are three reasons behind it. The first reason is that the one who is being addressed is a denier

00:01:36 --> 00:01:39

meaning he does not believe in that which you say.

00:01:40 --> 00:01:47

So, laqad is used to show that this is definitely true, believe in it.

00:01:48 --> 00:01:49

So, when is it used,

00:01:50 --> 00:01:54

when the listener when the person who is being addressed is not a believer?

00:01:55 --> 00:02:03

Secondly, the code is used, when the one who is being addressed is doubtful, when he is not sure,

00:02:04 --> 00:02:07

when he is in doubt, about what is being spoken of.

00:02:08 --> 00:02:22

So, laqad is said that remove all doubts. This is certain, this is a fact Don't be doubtful at all. So, NACA is also used to alleviate to remove all doubts.

00:02:23 --> 00:02:38

Thirdly, Lacan is used to highlight the importance of that, which is going to be mentioned, to highlight the great importance of that which is going to be mentioned,

00:02:39 --> 00:02:49

law called one law, he surely In fact, certainly such and such happened. What does that show the importance of that which is being stated?

00:02:50 --> 00:03:13

So one Oh God, meaning there is no doubt about it. Believe in this, be sure about this. And know that this is a very important fact. What that jackal Mousavi Mousavi, Ceylon came to you or Bani Israel with clear signs. We have done the word job before it is from the roof address. Jean. Yeah, Hamza.

00:03:14 --> 00:03:20

And by Unitas from the roof address there. Yeah, no. But you know, there's a parallel by Gina

00:03:21 --> 00:03:33

and by Hina, is used for a clear evidence, because we're humans that which is clear in itself. So by you know, is an evidence that completely clarifies the confusion.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:40

So, are these v net, that muscle is an umbrella to the money Australian? What are these clear evidences.

00:03:41 --> 00:04:05

It refers to the miracles that he performed. Remember, we discussed yesterday as well, that it is, is very inaccurate or shattering, as well as Kony. So the Torah, the Scripture, as well as the many other miracles that Musashi Salaam performed, which proved that he indeed was the Messenger of Allah.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:08

So what did these bidhannagar do?

00:04:09 --> 00:04:12

They clarified the truthfulness of musar. listener.

00:04:13 --> 00:04:56

For example, what miraclesuit musasa perform through the staff, the many miracles that were performed with the staff. For example, it ate up all of the snakes and the sticks of the magician's. Right. Similarly, the sea was parted with the staff. Similarly, with Alison, I'm struck the staff on the rock and 12 Springs gushed forth. Right. So all of these miracles, what did they prove? That musala salon was indeed a messenger from Allah, that indeed what he was telling them was something that they should have followed. It was a loss of panel data who had sent Him as their Savior.

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

So we sent a

00:05:00 --> 00:05:25

musala Sara Masada salon came to you with the clear signings. But what happened? So much, then, meaning after some time, instead of believing in Him, instead of following him, instead of being grateful, what did you do it the hustle when you are adopted the calf? What is the mean by you adopted the cuff? You took the calf For what? For worship?

00:05:26 --> 00:05:46

notice over here, that for worship, as a God is not mentioned, isn't it? Even in the verses that we read earlier, about the similar issue, taking the calf as a God was not mentioned. The only thing that was mentioned was that you adopted the calf. Why?

00:05:48 --> 00:05:53

Because it was an act that is so disliked by Allah Subhana Allah that Allah doesn't even mention that.

00:05:54 --> 00:06:18

You know, when you dislike something a lot, you don't even like to talk about it. So similarly, if the husband when originally you just took the calf for what that's understood, I don't need to repeat it. I don't need to mention it again. It is not something worth mentioning. It is something that disliked. So you took the calf, meaning as a god for worship member the after him. What does he mean by after him

00:06:19 --> 00:06:31

after Musashi Sam had gone, do the mount food to get the Scripture. So after him meaning after we saw this and I'm had gone to to, to receive the total

00:06:32 --> 00:07:09

body he has been understood in another way. By the he has been understood as that after he had come to you, with all of these bayonets, masala Salaam came to you with bayonets with clear evidences that showed that he was indeed the Messenger of Allah soprano data that Allah is the one who saved you. Allah is the one who is your Lord, who is your God. But what did you do? After he came to you with all of those clear signs? What did you do? Instead of worshipping Allah anon. Instead, you began worshipping the calf.

00:07:11 --> 00:07:16

And by worshiping the calf will uncover the moon and you will wrongdoers.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:19

By worshipping the calf, you did one

00:07:20 --> 00:08:11

Volume One is the plural of the word volume. And volume is one who does wood from the roof lettuce, raw lamb me, do you remember the meaning of the word one? What does it mean? injustice before that, it means to reduce Remember, it means NOx reduce, to reduce what? To reduce the rate of the other, to reduce the share of the other, do not give to the other what he deserves. So you did well on who? On yourselves. How? By doing check, also against Allah subhanaw taala. How? By reducing his right, you should have been grateful, you should have worshipped Allah only. But you began worshiping the gods.

00:08:13 --> 00:08:25

There was another meaning of the word Islam that I told you. What is another meaning of the word zone to put something where it does not belong? To play something where it does not belong?

00:08:26 --> 00:08:34

So the calf is a calf. It's a creature. It's a tiny creature, it's a baby creature.

00:08:35 --> 00:08:43

And what did you do? You made it with your own hands, a golden calf, and you put it at the level of, of loss.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:48

And by doing this action, you committed a great injustice.

00:08:50 --> 00:09:04

Also, were anthems on the moon and you all were wrongdoers. How? By committing the greatest volume by committing the greatest injustice. What is the greatest injustice? Should

00:09:05 --> 00:09:22

we learn in the Quran? That in a shirker lavonne. Indeed, associating partners with Allah is the Greatest injustice. So although they were believers of their time, because they worship the calf, what did they commit? Should

00:09:23 --> 00:09:59

they commit a check or under mwalimu and you will wrongdoers. So over here, we see that our last panel data is rebuking the Bani Israel. He is reproaching the Israeli Mossad Hassan went to Mount booth for 30 nights. Initially, he went for how long 30 nights, which meant that he was supposed to be back after 30 minutes. But when he got there, the period was extended to 14 nights, as we learned from another part of the club. Now when this happened with Miss Allison did not return after 30 nights. 70 who was from among the many Israel was

00:10:00 --> 00:10:22

Did he do? He made the golden calf? And he said that look who sadly Salaam has not returned. He did not find his God. Why? Because the actual God is this calf moosari center went in search of Allah, he did not find Allah and the actual God is who this guy who's in front of you, therefore, you should worship this guy.

00:10:23 --> 00:11:08

And we learned that instead of Taha I number 88, where somebody said that Heather illogical was 11 was a fantasy. This is your God and the God of Musa but he forgot. Meaning most our listener forgot his God meaning he doesn't know that this calf is actually the garden he went up to mount to to search for God. Now, the main thing is that he didn't go looking for Allah subhanaw taala he went because Allah called him to receive the Scripture. And hamdulillah Salaam he tried his best to make the people understand but what did they do? They refused to leave the caf. And this is this is connected with the previous ayah. What is the previous ayah? That when the Bani Israel were told,

00:11:08 --> 00:11:19

believe in the Quran, what was the response? We believe only in the Torah. Allah question then, if you say that you believe only the Torah, why did you kill the messengers?

00:11:20 --> 00:11:46

And over here, a las panatela questions them in another way? That Do you really believe in the Torah? You don't believe in the Torah? Because musasa was the one who brought you the total? And when he was away for just some time, what did you do? You completely forgot all of his teachings, everything he taught you, you left it, you abandoned it, and instead, you began worshipping the calf.

00:11:47 --> 00:11:51

So do you actually believe in the Torah? No, you don't believe in it.

00:11:52 --> 00:12:05

So in these verses, what is happening is that the claims of Bani Israel are being refuted. Their justifications for not believing in the Quran, are being refuted.

00:12:07 --> 00:12:34

So we learned from this ayah that the Bani Israel are being questioned about the sincerity of their faith in the Torah, about the sincerity of their faith in Musashi Salaam. Because when musala salam brought all of the clear evidences, clear miracles, clear signs, after seeing them, they should have obeyed Allah subhanaw taala more. Instead, they began worshiping the calf.

00:12:35 --> 00:12:57

And that shows that their faith is not sincere. So over here, we see that a Lost Planet Allah is questioning their claim that they only claim to be believers, but they're not actually believers. Because if they actually believed they would not have worship the calf, they would have believed in the Quran.

00:12:58 --> 00:13:33

So what are some of the lessons that we learned from this is the first thing that we learn is that the Bani Israel their worship the gaff with Zulu war anthem, why the moon? What does that mean? That they worship the calf out of injustice, and not out of ignorance. Their act of worshiping the calf was not based on ignorance. Remember that when a person does an action based on ignorance, he is not really accountable for that. When he learns about that action, then he is accountable for them.

00:13:34 --> 00:13:46

But when they worship the calf, that was based on rule, because they knew that Allah subhanaw taala was the one who had saved them. They knew that musala Islam was indeed the Messenger of Allah.

00:13:47 --> 00:13:53

And when a person does something wrong based on learn, then that wrong cannot be excused.

00:13:54 --> 00:14:38

Also, we learned from this verse that the Bani Israel had reached the extent of wrongdoing, how, by worshipping the calf, they reached the height, the extent of doing wrong by worshipping the gods. You know, what is that? People don't obey the messenger. But the other is that they begin to do shit. They begin to associate partners with other and when we look at the bunny, Australian, we say, oh, how terrible. What were they thinking? What were they doing? But if we look at the Muslims as well today, they don't just worship a calf. But Muslims, they have many calves today. For example, Muslims, while being believers in the oneness of Allah, there are Muslims who go pray to the dead,

00:14:39 --> 00:14:59

who go visit the graves who make the law to those who cannot help them. It is only a Lost Planet Allah Who created us, it is only Allah subhanaw taala who deserves our worship. And when a person turns to others besides Allah, it shows that he has weak Amen.

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

It shows that his faith is weak. Because if the Bani Israel truly believed in Allah subhanaw taala, they wouldn't have said was al Islam has lost Allah? No, they would have still continued to worship Allah.

00:15:13 --> 00:15:20

So when a person turns to others besides Allah, what does that show that his faith is weak, he needs to strengthen his faith.

00:15:21 --> 00:15:34

Also, we learn from this idea that Justin a person is a born believer, just because he is from a particular community, it doesn't mean that he can do whatever he wants to, he still has to follow the commands of Allah spandana.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:48

Just as a bunny Australian, just because they were chosen people didn't mean that they could go worship the calf. Similarly, being Muslims today, doesn't mean we could go against the commands of Allah Subhana Allah has given us.

00:15:49 --> 00:15:50

Let's listen to the recitation.

00:16:14 --> 00:16:15

What is a hardened Amita Coco?

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

And remember, when we took your covenant, which covenant? to have faith, to implement the Torah, to act according to the Torah?

00:16:27 --> 00:17:03

What a foreigner folk Akuma to and in order to make you accept me, sir, what did we do? We raised the mountain above you, when you refuse to accept it. And what were the Bani Israel told who all of you take? Martina cumbuco. Watson, all that we're giving you with over? Other words over here need to be looked into detail. For example, over here, Allah says, who do all of you take the addresses? Not just to the leaders, not just to the scholars, but everybody, the entire Bani Israel?

00:17:04 --> 00:17:15

Similarly, if we have the Quran today, it's not just for the scholars. It's not just for some people, it's for everyone. Who do all of you take all of you take what

00:17:16 --> 00:17:31

data, whatever that we have given you. What does it mean by whatever? Meaning everything, not just parts of the total? Not just some teachings, not just some commands, but all of them?

00:17:32 --> 00:18:01

And how should you take them before working with strength? We have done a similar idea before. And that is a repetition, just to remind the Bani Israel that remember this command as well. Remember, this promise that you made with Allah subhanaw taala? as well. As the question is, what does it mean by taking the book of Allah with strength? Taking the book of Allah with gua, what does he mean by that?

00:18:02 --> 00:18:07

We have done this before, what does it include? Following the commands of Allah.

00:18:08 --> 00:18:11

So first of all, it means believing,

00:18:12 --> 00:18:23

because who do take it, meaning accept it, believe in it. So believe in all of the teachings firmly, without leaving anything

00:18:25 --> 00:18:50

we learned earlier about the bunnies fire, vanilla, you know, one of the meanings was that their belief is limited, meaning they don't believe in everything that they must believe in. Over here, they're being told who Duma, Athena can be accepted, meaning believe in all of it firmly without leaving anything out. So that's the first thing that is included.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:59

The second thing is that all of you adhere to it firmly, apply it implemented properly,

00:19:00 --> 00:19:02

live according to its teachings.

00:19:03 --> 00:19:34

So first of all, believe it. Secondly, adhere to it firmly, apply it, implement it completely, back over with strength. Also, what this indicates is a third part of this is that in your reading of the book, in your recitation of the book, in your application of the book, what should you do? Be consistent. Don't just read it once and then forget it for another 10 months. No, be consistent, it should be a part of your life.

00:19:35 --> 00:19:59

Similarly, when it comes to applying the book, be consistent. Don't just follow one command at one occasion, and forget it at another. No. Follow it with consistency as well. So we see that in your reading in your recitation, in your application, in your reflection, what should you do? Be consistent. So strength is consistency.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:28

What is consistency, be consistent. And also be determined. Be serious. Don't be casual with it. Don't be non serious with it. Don't be lazy with it. Don't be forgetful, don't be careless. Who do Martina konnikova take whatever that we're giving you with strength, with determination, meaning implemented properly.

00:20:29 --> 00:20:37

Also, they were told was my rule and all of you listen as well. Now the word is Maru is from some scene name.

00:20:39 --> 00:21:12

And some are means, what does it mean, to listen to hear, but remember that there are different types of listening. The first type of listening is it rock is rock, which means to only perceive meaning just to hear the words just to hear the sound. For example, you hear somebody calling you, you hear somebody talking, you hear the birds chirping, you hear the doorbell ring. So what is this the first type of listening which is of

00:21:14 --> 00:21:37

the second type of listening is of a boon of acceptance. What does that mean? That what a person hears, He accepts it, and he responds to it. So it is of COBOL and St. Java, to accept and respond to what has been said, Do what has been requested to what has been commanded?

00:21:38 --> 00:22:03

For example, if somebody tells you, can you please bring a glass of water for me? So hearing is that first of all, you hear their words, that's the first step. What's the second step to accept and respond to what you have heard? So what does that mean? That you go and bring a glass of water for them?

00:22:04 --> 00:22:09

So over here, when the bunny Australian are told, what smile and listen, but does anybody listening over here?

00:22:11 --> 00:22:27

That just listen to the comments in one ear and out the other? No. What does it mean? That Listen, accept, obey, follow, do what you are being told to do. Do what you're being commanded to do.

00:22:29 --> 00:22:49

And also is narrow can be understood in another way that pay attention. Pay attention, when you're being commanded. Pay attention when you're being told. Pay attention when your messenger is telling you something was smart. Listen attentively, not with negligence.

00:22:51 --> 00:23:06

They said, meaning the buddy in Australia, their response was severe Anna, we have heard or Athena and we have disobeyed. Instead of saying Savannah, what are foreigner? What did they say? So Mirena? Where are solina?

00:23:07 --> 00:23:31

assigner is from the roof letters I insomnia from the word russellian, or matsuya, which means disobedience. And what is disobedience? It is to leave that which a person has been commanded with what is disobedience, that a person leaves what he has been commanded with? What does that mean? He doesn't do it.

00:23:32 --> 00:23:39

For example, we as Muslims have been commanded to fast in the month of Ramadan. What is maaseiah

00:23:40 --> 00:23:50

that a person says, I don't want to fast. I'm not going too fast. So first of all, maaseiah includes leaving the command

00:23:51 --> 00:23:53

leaving the obligation.

00:23:55 --> 00:24:03

Secondly, maaseiah also includes doing that, which is forbidden doing that, which is forbidden.

00:24:05 --> 00:24:10

So over here, what did the Bani Israel do? samina? What are Sonia?

00:24:11 --> 00:24:23

What does it mean by this? This has been understood as that's America, meaning Yes, we have heard your words with our ears. We have heard what you have said, but we're not going to obey

00:24:24 --> 00:24:25

our sign.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:33

We will disobey the commands that you are giving us. We will disobey what you are telling us to do.

00:24:34 --> 00:24:46

You know what is that a person says okay, fine. I'll do it. And then he doesn't do it. And the other is that a person says, Yes, I've heard but I'm not going to do it. But his mood. But he says I'm not going to do it.

00:24:47 --> 00:25:00

And this is what they did. Sameera wha Selena. Yes, we have heard your words with our ears, but we're going to disobey them by our actions. So they literally said we have disobeyed me.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:09

We're not going to listen, whatever you tell us, we're not going to do it. Whatever you tell us not to do. We are going to do it. We're only going to do that which suits us.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:25

It has also been said that what it means by Samir Nawaz Lena is that they said Sameera by their tongues. They serve samina by their tongues they said that we have heard, but when it came to actions, what do they do? They disobeyed.

00:25:26 --> 00:25:40

Allah says what will surely boo and they were made to drink feel cannubi him in their hearts. in their hearts. They were made to drink. What are they made to drink? La Jolla, the calf

00:25:41 --> 00:26:06

or Shiva is from Shin robber Shara. What the sharabi a drink and oshri boo. This is a passive form, it means he was filled with or he was given to drink. What does it mean? He was given to drink? So or should he boo ficolo be him? They were given to drink in their hearts.

00:26:07 --> 00:26:12

What were they given to drink in their hearts? Agent the calf?

00:26:13 --> 00:26:14

Now what does it mean by this?

00:26:16 --> 00:26:38

You see, when a person drinks something, what happens? It becomes a part of their body, isn't it? It is absorbed by the body, it is taken inside the body. Similarly, when you pour water on the soil, on the ground, what happens? It absorbs it, it goes in the soil.

00:26:39 --> 00:26:56

So over here, we're oshri boo, this is figurative speech. And what this means is that they were filled with, they were drenched with they were saturated with they were infused with they were filled up, filled up with what

00:26:57 --> 00:27:16

filled up, meaning their hearts were filled up with the calf. What does it mean by their hearts were filled up with the calf with the love of the calf. So in other words, their hearts were filled with the love of the calf.

00:27:17 --> 00:27:32

What should we both feel to be human original, the love of the calf settled in their hearts. Just as water is absorbed in the body. Similarly, love of the calf was absorbed in their hearts.

00:27:34 --> 00:27:39

In the Arabic language, when love or hate for something settles in the heart.

00:27:40 --> 00:28:12

When love or hate for something settles in the heart, then the word shut up is used to describe the intensity and the quantity of that particular feeling. Okay, whenever love for someone or hate for someone, it settles in the heart, it settles in the heart, then what do the Arabs do? They use the workshop drinking to indicate the intensity of that love or hate, or the great amount of that love or hate?

00:28:13 --> 00:28:29

And why is this expression used? Because if you think about it, once you pour water onto dry Earth, the earth absorbs it. Right? And the water becomes part of the soil, it becomes part of the ground.

00:28:30 --> 00:28:35

Now, can you separate the water from the soil? No.

00:28:36 --> 00:29:05

Similarly, when you drink something, can you separate that from your body? Not completely, isn't it? Not completely. So similarly, what this indicates is that the love for the calf had settled deep in their hearts. They were not going to leave the calf. They were not going to leave the worship of the calf. They had settled upon it, and they were not going to move.

00:29:07 --> 00:29:55

Others have said that what this means is that the love of the calf intoxicated their hearts, in the way that wine does, in the way that wine does. that a person when he is drunk, he doesn't think about what he's doing. He doesn't use his mind property he's overcome by that alcohol they use drunk. Similarly, they were overcome by the love of the calf, which is why they couldn't see the reality as it is. Despite knowing the fact that Allah is the one who saved them. Still, what were they worshiping the calf, they were still worshiping the calf. Now the question is, why was the love placed in their hearts? Why? Because he him because of their disbelief, their disbelief and their

00:29:55 --> 00:29:57

disbelief in our last panel.

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

So when they worship the calf

00:30:00 --> 00:30:13

What happened? They disbelieve in Allah subhanaw taala. And as a result what happened? The love of the calf suffered deep into their hearts, such that they weren't going to leave the calf at any cost.

00:30:14 --> 00:30:27

We learned from Surah Taha number 90 and 91 Why not all of whom heroism in public kaaboo yeah comin in Mr. foot into the war in Iraq Docomo Rockman. Factory Ronnie will appear me

00:30:28 --> 00:31:22

and her owner is Sam had already told them before the return of musar listener, that all my people, you are only being tested by the calf. And indeed, your Lord is the Most Merciful. You're an artist, not the scuff. Your Lord is our man. So follow me and obey my order. What are the people who didn't listen to him? No. I know, love never had a year Aquafina had Diageo, Elena Moosa, they said, We will never cease being devoted to the calf. We are never going to stop being devoted to the calf until Moosa returns to us. What does that show that their hearts were filled with the love of the calf. And as a result of this love, they couldn't even see the reality as it was Haruna Anissa was

00:31:22 --> 00:31:37

reminding them this is not your Lord, your Lord is our man. So worship him, don't worship this calf. But if they listen to him, know why, because of the immense love that they had in their heart, for the calf.

00:31:39 --> 00:32:06

So Allah subhanaw taala says over here to say, bit Sanaya model can be imagine how evil How bad is that what your faith commands you to do? The center bit sir. And meaning how bad very bad very bad is that? Which yet Morocco? Yeah, Morrow is from Hamza Nimrod. And what is our main command instruction?

00:32:07 --> 00:32:18

So how evil is that, which it commands you? Yet, Murakami? What commands you, Emanuel calm your faith, your Eman?

00:32:19 --> 00:33:07

They claim to be believers. Allah says that if you really believers, then what is it that your man is commanding you to do? It's commanding you to worship the calf? What kind of man is this? You say we believe in what has been sent down to us. You say we believe in the prophets in Moosa. But do you actually believe in him? No, you don't? Do you actually believe in a Thera? No. Bit scenario, Mortal Kombat II monochrome in control mode, meaning if you're truly believers, so what does this ayah show that you're not actually believers? You claim to be believers, but you're not actually believers. Why? Because a man does not command that a person worships other than Allah.

00:33:08 --> 00:33:31

So if your man tells you that you should worship the calf, what you have is not a man, what you have is something else. So first of all, the ayah tells us that such people are not believers. Secondly, this also says in quantum Meaning, if you're truly believers, that you don't believe in the Torah either. You don't believe in the Torah either. Why?

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

Because you have disbelieved in Mohammed savasana.

00:33:36 --> 00:33:40

Whereas a man does not command you to reject Him.

00:33:42 --> 00:33:52

So if what you have is telling you to reject Mohammed salatu salam, what you have is not actually a man, then you claim to be believers only. But you don't actually have a man.

00:33:54 --> 00:33:58

So what lessons do we learn from this verse? What lessons do we learn from this verse?

00:34:00 --> 00:34:29

The Bani Israel we're told, holy woman is a nickel. Before we take what we're giving you with strength. What does that show us? But when it comes to the in, when it comes to practicing Dean, we should use some cooler that Allah subhanaw taala has given us we think that all of our strength, all of our energy is to be used for what shopping and feeding the house and cooking the food and all of these worldly things. And when it comes to the, we lack energy, we lack strength.

00:34:30 --> 00:34:58

We find it difficult to fast, we find it difficult to predict or we we find it difficult to recite the Quran. Allah is telling us that take the deen with strength. Take the Quran with strength when you struggle at all. Take the book with strength. And the same applies to us as well. There's a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in which he said that the strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:32

The strong believer is a he is better and be he is more beloved to Allah, then who, then the weak believer. While there is good in both mean the weak believer is also good. But Allah loves more who, the believer who is stronger. And this strength is not just the physical strength, but it applies to the strength of a man, the strength of actions, the strength of conviction, the strength of determination, the strength of application of being consistent with the team.

00:35:34 --> 00:35:47

Then Allah subhanaw taala tells them what's tomorrow? Listen, listen, reading listen attentively. How do you know that somebody is listening to you attentively? When they respond, right. So when you don't respond, what is that?

00:35:49 --> 00:36:11

So the bunny is trying to listen attentively, meaning respond to what you're being told, respond to what you're being commanded. So it is not enough for us to just listen to the book, to just listen to the Quran, to just listen to the explanation of the words, what is required,

00:36:12 --> 00:36:14

application is required.

00:36:16 --> 00:36:20

Also, we learned from this ayah that why did the Bani Israel disbelief

00:36:21 --> 00:36:24

because of the love of the calf,

00:36:25 --> 00:36:40

or oshi boo fiocco Lubin will be covering him because of their disbelief. So we learn that a person rejects the commands of Allah, when, when there is something else in his heart,

00:36:41 --> 00:36:53

what was in their hearts, the love of the calf, and because of that love of the calf, they were not going to obey the messenger. They were not going to worship Allah alone.

00:36:54 --> 00:37:03

With us what happens? We know we have to pray. We know we should read the Quran. We know we shouldn't lie. We know we should be kind to others.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:13

But what is it that stops us? Why don't we do it? Why don't we obey Allah? Why? Because there is something else in the heart.

00:37:14 --> 00:37:21

There's something else which is taking more of our attention, more of our energy, more of our love.

00:37:22 --> 00:37:27

So, every person has some form of agent,

00:37:28 --> 00:37:35

the bunny Australia had the actual calf, which was stopping them from worshiping Allah, which was stopping them from listening to the messenger.

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

And we also have some form of agent that prevents us from obeying almost anytime

00:37:43 --> 00:38:16

soon, sometimes, it may be a person who is stopping us the love of a person, sometimes it may be a particular work or a particular customer or particular tradition, or particular position that we want to have. It could be money, it could be fame, it could be praised. It could be the acceptance of other people, there could be many, many things. But all of us need to sit and figure out what is there a job that is stopping me from obeying a law?

00:38:17 --> 00:38:23

What is there a job that is preventing me from moving forward in my team?

00:38:24 --> 00:38:26

What is that? What is that graph?

00:38:28 --> 00:38:35

And when there is something else that occupies us, then naturally, we are distracted from that which is more important.

00:38:36 --> 00:39:05

For example, you may have seen children, sometimes they're watching television, or even older people, they're working on the computer, they're checking their phone, or they're reading something. And the other person is trying to have a conversation with them. It's trying to tell them and if you say something else, and you're like, what did I say? They have no idea what what you have said, Why? Because they're occupied with something else. We can only have one thing in our heart at a time. We cannot have many things at a time.

00:39:06 --> 00:39:14

There is either the love of Allah or it is something else. And if something else replaces the love of Allah, then it is something very dangerous.

00:39:16 --> 00:39:22

In the following verses now, some other claims of the root of the Bani Israel are being refuted.

00:39:23 --> 00:39:52

They would give many explanations for not believing in the Quran for not believing in the prophets or among many justifications. Sometimes they would say, Our hearts are wrapped up. Other times they would say, Oh, he's not obvious. He's only for the Arabs. Other times they would say, we believe only in what has been given to us, not in what has been given to other people. Now they made some other claims some other justifications for not believing in the Quran.

00:39:53 --> 00:39:59

For example, they would say that National Urban Allah what a Hebrew we are the children of Allah.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:12

His beloved ones, we can do whatever we want to. If we don't believe in the Quran, if we don't follow this messenger, we're not going to be punished. We can do whatever we want to. We're not accountable for our actions. We are the chosen people.

00:40:13 --> 00:40:15

So if we don't believe in this Quran, it's no big deal.

00:40:16 --> 00:40:30

Or they would say, we'll call you later the whole agenda. 11 kind of hidden owners, for none will enter Paradise except one who is a Jew or a Christian. So because we are Jews, therefore we're going to paradise.

00:40:32 --> 00:40:36

And if we believe in the Quran, we will not remain Jews. Therefore, we're not going to believe in

00:40:38 --> 00:40:43

so they offered many justifications for not believing in the Quran.

00:40:44 --> 00:40:50

Over here, they said that Jenna Paradise is only for us.

00:40:51 --> 00:41:09

Allah subhanaw taala refutes this claim, Allah says, say, if Canada it was, if it was what was lacking for you, what was for you, Adele, for the home of the hereafter? What is the home of the year after

00:41:10 --> 00:41:44

Jenna paradise? Remember Hellfire cannot be home, because it is not a place of peace. So Adel Arthur refers to paradise. So, if the home of the hereafter meaning Jenna, it is for you, in the love near Allah meaning in the sight of a lion, that decision of Allah according to the decision of Allah, the home of the Hereafter is for you, and how is it for you highly sought and exclusively meaning it is not for anyone else, but you it is only you, who is going to gender

00:41:45 --> 00:41:48

the word harness is from the roof letters Hall lamps

00:41:49 --> 00:42:08

have you heard of the word is loss, what does that mean? sincerity, what does that mean that a person does an action only for a loss of penalty only to get reward from him and nobody else only to get his praise and nobody else right this is what if losses

00:42:09 --> 00:42:18

and it's also from the root letters hi lancel hellos means when something is purely and specifically for someone

00:42:19 --> 00:42:20

what does it mean

00:42:21 --> 00:42:45

when something is purely and specifically for someone not for anyone else. So hulu's indeed is that a person does an action purely and sincerely for who for Allah not for anybody else exclusively. And this is basically from philosophy which means when something is completely pure

00:42:46 --> 00:42:54

and free from all extra things, when something is pure and free from all extra things.

00:42:56 --> 00:43:04

So holos is to make an action pure for only one person, only one purpose, one goal

00:43:05 --> 00:43:15

okay. So, if you claim that the home of the Hereafter is for you, Holly Sutton meaning exclusively for you.

00:43:16 --> 00:43:57

And in general, only you will be there Jenna will be free from all others. Jenna will only have you Only you are going to Jenna mendola nurse from besides people, meaning from the sides all of mankind, it is only you who is going to paradise. Allah says Fatima will mount that then which product Phantom I know is from the roof address name lunia. We have done the word Amani earlier it is from the same root letters and many are false hopes. And the money is to have hopes to desire for something, the longing for something to wish for something.

00:43:58 --> 00:44:06

So further Mandela was removed then wish for mode wish for that. Why wish for that?

00:44:07 --> 00:44:08

Why wish for that?

00:44:09 --> 00:44:12

Because only when you die? Can you get the agenda?

00:44:13 --> 00:44:23

So in other words, if gender is only for you, if you are definitely going to gender. And what are you doing here in this world? Is this world a better place? Or is gender a better place?

00:44:26 --> 00:44:30

Is this world a place where all of your wishes will be fulfilled? Where gender gender

00:44:31 --> 00:44:36

is it this world where you don't have to do anything or his agenda agenda? And what are you doing here?

00:44:37 --> 00:44:41

What are you waiting for? wish for that? And go to Paradise.

00:44:42 --> 00:44:48

In kuntum sada thing if you're truthful. If you're truthful in what in your claim the agenda is exclusively for you.

00:44:50 --> 00:44:59

Allah says well none and never notice land What does land me? Never. Not at all. Yet Am I know who they will wish

00:45:00 --> 00:45:03

They will never ever wish for depth

00:45:04 --> 00:45:05


00:45:06 --> 00:45:12

The word of it is from the roof address Hamza, that that. And it gives the meaning of eternity.

00:45:13 --> 00:45:14

It gives the meaning of always.

00:45:15 --> 00:45:26

And when the word of it comes after law or land for any word that gives meaning of No, then of it gives a sense of never ever.

00:45:27 --> 00:45:34

So lainnya Tama no who have other What does it mean? They will never, ever wish for that

00:45:36 --> 00:45:38

they will never ever wish for them.

00:45:39 --> 00:45:40


00:45:41 --> 00:45:46

be mad at him, because of what their hands have put forward.

00:45:47 --> 00:45:49

Or the month is from above the mean

00:45:50 --> 00:45:52

of that mean? Are the

00:45:53 --> 00:45:57

other means to step two step forward

00:45:58 --> 00:46:00

to take a step, and go ahead

00:46:01 --> 00:46:03

to take a step and move forward.

00:46:04 --> 00:46:08

And a demo is to send something else ahead,

00:46:09 --> 00:46:12

descend something else forward

00:46:13 --> 00:46:14

to advance.

00:46:15 --> 00:46:26

So ultimate it center head, what center head ID in their hands, it is a Florida yet. So because of what their hands have sent ahead.

00:46:27 --> 00:46:29

What does he mean by mouth imitating

00:46:30 --> 00:46:35

my Potomac ID him is used for actions that have been done.

00:46:36 --> 00:46:40

actions that a person has done in the past.

00:46:41 --> 00:47:07

And this expression is used my ultimate ad and because of what their hands have sent ahead, why? Because what you have sent ahead is gone. Similarly, an action that a person has already done, it's done, he cannot go and alter it now. He cannot go back in time and try to change the action. No, you can't go back in time. You can seek forgiveness, you can do other things. But what is done is done it is written

00:47:08 --> 00:47:10

and hands have been used over here. Why?

00:47:11 --> 00:47:33

Because most of the actions they're done by hands for example writing, cooking, cleaning, what do you use? Your hands even driving use your hands. Right. So we market them at add meaning because of the actions that they have done? Which actions are these? Which actions are these?

00:47:34 --> 00:47:47

Okay, for example, changing the Torah, committing sins, going against the laws of the Torah, worshiping the calf, killing the prophets. Similarly, denying the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

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

so be my ultimate ID him because of the wrong actions that they have done. They're never going to pray for that. What does that show? What does that show

00:47:58 --> 00:48:00

that they realize the wrong actions?

00:48:01 --> 00:48:13

Again, they are not doing wrong because of ignorance. Just as they did not worship the calf out of ignorance. Similarly, they're not doing wrong because of ignorance.

00:48:14 --> 00:48:21

Allah says we're long what are the men and allies always all knowing build loyalty mean with those who do wrong

00:48:22 --> 00:48:28

meaning a loss of Panasonic is aware of all of their actions and he will recompense them accordingly

00:48:30 --> 00:48:43

then Allah says what I didn't know and surely you will definitely find them. You refers to the listener primary primarily the prophets have a lot of sentiment then after him everybody who's listening to this I

00:48:44 --> 00:48:52

want you to know this is what and love surely that indicates you and then you have the letters jeem and then

00:48:54 --> 00:48:56

the root letters are well deem then

00:48:58 --> 00:49:00

the route fighters are well done.

00:49:01 --> 00:49:03

Now you don't see the wire over here. Why?

00:49:04 --> 00:49:05

Because it's out there.

00:49:06 --> 00:49:09

Okay. And what are the means to find something?

00:49:10 --> 00:49:11

What does it mean

00:49:12 --> 00:49:24

to find something to meet something to come across something and the known at the end that you see after the doll with a shadow on it, this noon with the shadow is called noon, the pillar

00:49:26 --> 00:49:40

the heavy noon? Why is it heavy? It has a shadow on it. And it also intensifies the meaning which is why you translate this noon which had that as definitely, certainly.

00:49:41 --> 00:49:47

So well taggi then meaning surely you will definitely find

00:49:48 --> 00:49:52

you will definitely meet you will definitely come across

00:49:53 --> 00:49:59

them. Who does that refer to? The bunny Australian. So what if I didn't know him? Surely you

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

definitely find them. For fun nursing most greedy of all people, a house is wondering fetters How are upside hips

00:50:11 --> 00:50:13

and hips is used for greed,

00:50:14 --> 00:50:16

what is his greed?

00:50:17 --> 00:50:21

It is used for eagerly desiring something

00:50:22 --> 00:50:24

strongly desiring something.

00:50:25 --> 00:50:38

And in particular it is used for a desire, which is difficult to fulfill, or in order to fulfill it, a person has to put in some effort,

00:50:39 --> 00:50:57

what extreme desire for something and intense desire for something, and intense longing for something. And in order to fulfill this desire, a person has to put in some effort, or it is difficult to fulfill that particular design. Why?

00:50:58 --> 00:51:13

Because sometimes it's not in your hands. Sometimes it's not in your hands. For example, a person has this longing to eat a particular food, can eat it right away, no, he has to go, either buy it, or he has to go cook it.

00:51:14 --> 00:51:19

So he has to go through some difficulty in order to fulfill that desire.

00:51:20 --> 00:51:22

But it's an intense desire.

00:51:23 --> 00:51:34

So Allah says over here that you will find them as a house, notice the word was a house, remember I told you about that Arabic words have certain structures.

00:51:35 --> 00:51:47

So a house just as the word saw the care the volume, it's a structure one who is doing something. So, I was is on the structure of F.

00:51:48 --> 00:51:54

And this structure gives the meaning of an action of superlative degree

00:51:55 --> 00:52:00

you know, you have good, better and then you have best,

00:52:01 --> 00:52:03

better and best there are different right.

00:52:05 --> 00:52:26

So similarly, a house is like most greedy or greedy. Yes. One is greedy, and the other is most greedy. So over here, Allah says that you will find them not just greedy, but you will find the most greedy greediest of all people.

00:52:27 --> 00:52:44

greediest, who are ness of all people? For what? What are the most greedy for either hating upon life? What does it mean minus that out of all people, they're the most greedy for life. They don't want to die.

00:52:45 --> 00:52:49

They don't want to die. They love life.

00:52:50 --> 00:52:56

Allah says wamena, levina, Ashraful and even from those people who do ship,

00:52:57 --> 00:53:00

meaning there are more greedy for life than who

00:53:01 --> 00:53:03

then those who associate partners with.

00:53:05 --> 00:53:16

Other word ashinoko is from Shin wha, calf, Shin or calf. The word shift is from the same root fetters. What does help me to associate partners with Allah

00:53:17 --> 00:53:30

the literal meaning of the word is to have a share in something to be a partner in something with someone to be a partner in something with someone.

00:53:31 --> 00:53:36

So share is to associate partners with Allah.

00:53:37 --> 00:53:52

That if Allah subhanaw taala is the Holic Naruto Bella chick is what that a person says that so and so shares in the act of creation that Allah created and so and so also created now.

00:53:53 --> 00:54:03

Or for example, Allah subhanaw taala is right is that he alone deserves worship. Sheikh is what? To worship someone else.

00:54:04 --> 00:54:18

Allah is right is that a person should make God only to him, shake is what that a person makes there are two others. He gives the share of Allah to others, he associates others with Allah.

00:54:19 --> 00:54:33

So Allah says that those people who do share meaning the polytheists even they are not as greedy for life as compared to the Bani Israel. How greedy are they for life?

00:54:34 --> 00:54:56

Yeah, what do he loves? he wishes he What do is from well that well that would which is used for love, but it is used for intense love. intense desire for something intense hope for something but you know Harris is more of desire and wood is more of love.

00:54:58 --> 00:54:59

So you're What do he loves?

00:55:01 --> 00:55:57

What does he love? I had one, each one of them, what does he love? That No you are not, if only he is granted a life of how long alpha Santa 1000 years. Each and every one of them loves that he should be given a life of 1000 years. Your armor is from the roof letters I mean, the word aroma is from the same root, which means age, life, and the word Your mother is understood in two ways. First of all, your armor is understood as that he is given a life he is given an age of. Secondly, your mode is understood as that he is given a long life. He is given a long life, what's the difference between the two? The first is just life just age. The second is long life. So each one of them loves

00:55:57 --> 00:56:47

that he should be given a life of how long 1000 years? And secondly, what does it mean that each of them wishes that he should be increased in his lifespan? with how much 1000 more years? What's the difference between the two? First is, each of them wants to live for 1000 years. The other is that if a person has been given a life of 16 years, he wants 1000 more. If he's been given a life of eight years, he wants 1000 more meaning he does not want to die, even when he has become extremely old. You know, sometimes you meet people who are very old. And when they become dependent on others, they worry about becoming more dependent on others. And what do they wish that Allah subhanaw taala

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

gives them that when they are still able. Right? So it is as if as they're approaching old age, they become more and more closer to that.

00:56:58 --> 00:57:12

But such people, the more aged they become the more long life they want. You What do I how do I know your model alpha center? But is long life going to remove them from the punishment?

00:57:14 --> 00:58:13

Allah says woman who and it is not what is not. It refers to long life or a life of 1000 years. It is not be Musashi in the least one that moves him away from what men are there from the punishment. And even if he's given a long life, the word be Moza z, be it over here given the meaning of at all. And Moza has a notice the word music begins with me What does that show? It's one who is doing the action. Right. And the word was as it is from the roof letters they had they have four letters with something new. Most of the Arabic words, they have root letters that are only three, some have four, some have five, some have two, but generally there are three, okay, and Zephaniah is to remove

00:58:13 --> 00:58:45

something far away. What does it mean? To remove something far away? Why in order to protect it, in order to save it. So the long life is not going to remove this person away from the punishment, even if he lives for 1000 years will be my armor and Allah is seeing of what they do. So what do we learn from this is that no matter how long of a life, a person lives, he cannot avoid death,

00:58:46 --> 00:58:57

he cannot avoid his he cannot avoid giving an account of his deeds, he cannot avoid judgment, he cannot avoid the Hereafter,

00:58:58 --> 00:59:02

no matter how long a life a person may live.

00:59:03 --> 00:59:12

Also, we learned from this ayah that the life of this dunya is nothing compared to the eternal life of the hereafter

00:59:14 --> 00:59:50

that I thought then he has How long? 60 years 80 years 100 years Okay fine, even if a person has given 1000 years, it is still nothing compared to the life of the hereafter. Why? Because the life of the Hereafter is eternal life of this dunya is limited it is going to end. So what should be given preference thereafter, that which is eternal, that which is longer that which is more important. So a person should never think that I'm too young. You know, I can wait. I'll do this when I'm older.

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

Or I live long enough to repent. When I'm 60 I'll go to Hajj and all of my sins will be forgiven. No

01:00:00 --> 01:00:03

A person should benefit from the life that he has been given.

01:00:04 --> 01:00:50

Even if a person is given a life of 1000 years, if he does not do good, that life is not going to benefit him. And if a person is given a life of 20 years, and if he benefits from that life, is that life going to benefit him? Yes. So what is it that matters at the end of the day? Is it the quantity? Or is it the quality? The quality? Is it the long life? Or is it the actions that a person doesn't that long life actions, we see that I showed the learner she was only 18 years old when the prophets of Allah seven passed away. But she had learned so much from him. And in that young age, she began teaching so many people don't wait to become old. Don't wait. Because it's not the

01:00:50 --> 01:00:56

quantity. It's not the age. It's about now what do I do now?

01:00:58 --> 01:01:06

Also, we learned about so many scholars who were 30 years of age 40 years of age when they passed away. And not only how old was he was very young,

01:01:07 --> 01:01:16

when he left so many good books for us to benefit from 44 hadith of knowing everybody knows about that. So many people benefit from it.

01:01:17 --> 01:01:24

So we should benefit from the life that Allah has given us, no matter how short or how long it is.

01:01:25 --> 01:01:33

And we should not wait that I will do this tomorrow, because we don't know when our life is going to end. Our chance is now

01:01:35 --> 01:01:36

we would listen to the recitation

01:01:52 --> 01:01:53

auto semi

01:01:56 --> 01:01:57


01:02:01 --> 01:02:01


01:02:06 --> 01:02:07

auto come in

01:02:09 --> 01:02:09


01:02:19 --> 01:02:21

the long haul

01:02:25 --> 01:02:27


01:02:30 --> 01:02:31


01:02:41 --> 01:02:42

the mess,

01:02:44 --> 01:02:45

long, long,

01:02:47 --> 01:02:47


01:03:21 --> 01:03:25

No matter how old we are, we should remember Allahu Basildon.

01:03:27 --> 01:03:42

Allah is watching every single action of mine, regardless of my age, regardless of how much time I have left. So I have to be careful about my actions and not worry about my life, but worry about my actions.
