Al-Baqarah 104-112 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 104-108
lesson number 16 similar to the bacara number 104 to 112
Yeah, you had Medina amanu or you who have believed ladipo laurina do not say to the messenger or are in a whirlpool on zona but you all should say on the corner was smart rule and listen well Catherine are there been a name and for the disbelievers is a painful punishment
a lots of panel dialer addresses the believers over here. How? By saying Yeah, uh you had Latina Aminu or you who have believed or those who are believers.
Yeah, are you here, as we know, is health NIDA. It is a word that is used to call out to someone to address someone to gain their attention.
And because the address begins with NIDA, it is in order to alert the listener.
So everyone who is listening to this verse, yeah, uh, you have Medina Avenue, as soon as they hear Yeah, uh, you have what happens? They become alert. So, the purpose is to alert the listener
and it is also to show that whatever is going to be stated is something that is very important.
So, yeah, help me that is used, why in order to alert the listener, and also to show that what is going to be stated, is something that is very important. So listen carefully, listen attentively, it is an important instruction, and observing it is necessary. So listen attentively.
So who is the address to alladhina? Those people who am I know, who have believed?
Who have they believed in
the building, verse alladhina, amanu, those who believe in the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
those who believe in the Quran, those who believe in whatever is necessary to believe in?
Yeah, are you Hello, Dina Amano, or you who have believed.
Now we see over here that a particular group of people is being called by their characteristics, a group of people is being called by their characteristic of emails. One way to call someone is to call someone by their name, or Maria lorisha.
And another is to call that person, by their attribute, by their qualities, by their characteristics. It is nice to be called by your name. But it is even nicer when a person is called by their attributes, their quality, because it shows love. And it shows care on the part of the person who is calling. It shows love and care, and concern and being considerate on the part of the person who was calling. One is to call your mother by her name. And another is to say, Mother, Mom, what does that show?
honor and respect, being a mother is their attribute. But when you say Mother, when you say, Mom, when you say Mama, instead of saying her name? What does that show? It shows respect. It shows care. It shows love.
Which is why many times when people when they call their children even they don't call them by their name, what do they say, My dear child, in various languages, whatever language that a person speaks. So to call someone by their attribute is a way of expressing love and care for them.
And it also makes the listener ready to listen to what is going to be said what is going to be stated
because you know that you are being called.
And over here, a loss of final data addresses the believers with their quality of Eman with their quality of faith.
Why? Why does the loss of panels are the say yeah, a few 100 in a minute. All you people who have believed what is being highlighted over here,
amen. So why are they being called by their characteristic of immigrants?
First of all, it is to show that observing the following command is a part of image because it is yeah, you alladhina amanu Oh, you have believed latter, who don't
Say Arina. So what is it means that observing this command is a part of email. So because you're a believer, you must observe this command that is going to be given.
And it also shows that not observing the command that is going to be given shows that a person is falling short in this characteristic of this, because if a person has this characteristic, then he must do such and such. If he does not do it, then what does that show that they don't really have that characteristic? So Allah says, Yeah, au Han Latina, Allah, no, all you who have believed, meaning if you're truly believers, then you have to do this. This is a part of your Eman. This is something that will show that you really have emerged and listen attentively to the command that is going to be given
even massarotti learn who he said that when Allah subhanaw taala addresses like this and the Quran, meaning he says here a un Latina Amano. Then listen attentively, listen carefully. Why, why they said attentively. Why Listen carefully.
Because Indeed, it is either something good that he is commanding you to do. So if you don't listen attentively what's going to happen, you're going to miss out
or it is an evil that he is forbidding you from. So, that is also why listen attentively. Yeah. Are you Hi Latina, Amano all you who have believed, listen attentively to the command that is going to follow. Remember that observing this is a part of you.
Remember, that observing this is something that is very important for you.
And remember that this address Yeah, are you are letting me know, it comes many, many times in the Quran.
Now, who exactly is being addressed by alladhina amanu by the believers, two meanings can be understood.
First of all, we can understand alladhina amanu, those who have believed in the general sense,
it refers to the believers of all times the believers of the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sunnah and also the barriers that will come after him up until the day of judgment. So it includes us. So when Allah says yeah, you are letting me know, it could be a command that is for believers in general.
Secondly, we can understand this as a specific address specific address to the believers of the time of the Prophet sort of model center.
And this meaning is determined by the context.
Bank over here, the idea is, yeah, you alladhina amanu or you have believed that the cooloola in our columns, don't say loreena to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, but instead say one word. So obviously, this command is to do to us, can we talk to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam right now? No. So, this address is has it is specific to the believers of the time of the profit sort of Auto Center.
So, what is the last panel data saying over here?
He says, Let the cooloola in don't say to your profit or are in
the word loreena is from the roof letters are all i mean? Yes, it is from the routers, all right, yeah. Very, very means supervision.
What does it mean, supervision,
to take care of, do pay attention to
the guard, to keep an eye on a living creature,
which is why arare from the same root is used for a shepherd.
Because what does the shepherd do?
He supervises, he takes care of he guards. He protects animals, his flock.
So the word gives a sense of looking after taking care of keeping an eye on a living creature.
This is the literal meaning of the word or our idea.
And this is done in two ways.
First of all, by feeding by fulfilling the needs
and secondly, by protecting from something that is dangerous. Now over here, the word that we see is a rah,
rah, you know, it is not Laurie. It is not Shepherd, what is it, Laurie? No.
In conversational Arabic, if a person would miss what the speaker was saying, then he would say
meaning, look at us, pay attention to us, just as we say, if somebody is talking to us, and if we miss out on what they have said, What do we say? I beg your pardon? Excuse me, what did you just say? So, similarly, in conversational Arabic, the people if they missed out on what the speaker was saying, what would they say?
Which would mean that give us time, meanings look after us. In other words, give us time to hear you.
Look at us, watch us. So, this is the meaning of the word blurriness. When is it used when a person misses out on what the speaker has said, and he says this, so that the speaker can either slow down, or he can repeat himself?
Now the word loreena means pay attention to us, consider us, observe us attend to us,
the believers are being told, do not say, or Arina,
the Sahaba or the Allahu anhu, whenever they were in the matches of the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam, when the prophets are not us, and we'll be addressing them. And if they missed out on something, they would say loreena, when listening to his words,
a lot of panels are told them Do not say long enough. Why?
because of two reasons. First of all, the word varenna, it conveys a sense of equality. It gives a sense of equality, meaning you only say Latina to someone who is equal to you. You don't say Arina, to someone who is above you, or someone who has a higher rank than you because it is disrespectful.
For example, if you miss out on what your child said, on what your sibling said, What do you say? What? Right? Isn't that what you say? What did you say? You Say what?
But if your mother says something, and you missed it,
or if somebody of greater status says something to you, and you miss it, you don't say what to them? What do you say? I beg your pardon? Excuse me? Could you please repeat what you said. But Raveena conveys the sense of equality. You only use it for someone who is equal to you. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was a messenger of Allah.
So that is why the believers are told, don't say loreena, because it is not as respectful use words that are more respectful for the Prophet sallallahu.
And this is the etiquette that they were taught. And this is an etiquette from which we can also benefit that appropriate words must be used. Depending on who we are speaking to. The way you address a child is not the way you address your parent. So this is one reason as to why our last panel data told the believers do not say loreena.
Another reason as to why the believers were told not to say loreena was that the word loreena. With a little twist, with a slight twist, this word would give a completely different meaning. It would give a completely different meaning.
The Sahaba would say, Omar in a
and we know that the Bani Israel, the hood of Medina, they would also come to the Prophet sort of autism. And if they missed out on something, they would also say Raveena. But instead of saying large enough, properly, they would say large enough.
Or they would say, large enough, without the elephant thing. And so with a slight twist, the word was changed. And the word would convey a very abusive meaning in their language, in Hebrew language, also in Arabic.
So for example, if they would say loreena What would that mean? Rory, meaning Shepherd, now, our seraphina our shepherd,
and they would say this, in order to insult the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Yes, it is true. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was a shepherd before, but they would say this, not out of respect, but they would say this out of mockery, in order to insulting so they would say what are enough.
Also, they said that they would say roar enough without the elephant the end.
And if you say the word roar enough, then the word varina would be derived from the root letters of all arain known for rain noon. The words that you see over here are enough, Laurie
means pay attention and ness means us. Right? But if you eliminate the Elif, then laurina becomes one word from the route setters law is known from the word Runa. From the word Bruna,
which means foolishness and stupidity.
What does it mean? foolishness and stupidity. So loreena means foolish person, a stupid person, a silly person.
And some linguists have said that it means donkey.
And others have said that it means Listen, you do not hear, meaning Listen, or you person who cannot hear, or you person who is deaf.
So the budding Israel on the outward, they would say the word Latina, but they wouldn't say it properly. They wouldn't pronounce it properly. Either they would say Laurie, you know, or they would say, Latina.
And this became a word that was very abusive.
And they use this for the profits or loss.
So a lot of panel data at all the believers, let a guru Arina you don't say loreena
we see that sometimes, when a person twists his words, to give a completely different meaning, without making the other person realize you're showing something else and you're doing something else. You know, when a person does that, he thinks that the other person didn't realize, and he's laughing in his heart. He's having a ball in his arms.
But the reality is that Allah subhanaw taala knows exactly what we say, and exactly what we mean. He knows the words we utter, and he knows the intentions behind those words as well. So over here, Allah subhanaw taala says, Don't say, or Arina. Who is this command to?
To the believers? Notice, he doesn't say to the Bani Israel, we know what you say. We know your trickery and deceit. He doesn't reprimand he doesn't rebuke the Bani Israel.
Instead, he commands the believers just change your ways.
And this is one of the best things that we can do.
Because many times, the other person despite being wrong, does not acknowledge his mistake. Sometimes he doesn't even see his mistake. And sometimes even if he acknowledges his mistake, he is so stubborn. He doesn't change. He doesn't care about you. And there is absolutely no point arguing with such people.
There's absolutely no point, reprimanding them, rebuking them. What you can do is just change your way. Just don't give them an opportunity to do something that is wrong. And this is exactly what Allah subhanaw taala told the believers, he says, letter kulula don't say
the word Rhino is not a bad word in itself. But because the word was being abused, to insult the Prophet sallallahu Sallam through it, Allah Subhana Allah told the believers to use another word instead.
So Allah says ladipo loreena. And he says, We're kulu. And you all say, instead, you should say, owns or you should say to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Look at us, give us little time.
So we see over here, that Allah subhanaw taala gives an alternate to the believers as well.
Many times we tell the people don't do this, don't do this, don't do this. And we don't give them an alternate
or we point out the faults, but we don't tell the people how to fix the faults.
Over here Allah says, we'll call on boldness instead you should say
the word on zdnet is from the root letters known war.
It is on the roof letters known war or Navarro. And the Word Owner gives us two meanings as well.
First of all, it means from Nova to look at something to pay attention. So antona means look at us.
Secondly, Nevada also means to wait for someone to give a chance to someone so on vadhana means wait for us, give a chance to us.
So instead of saying loreena say on Dorner, meaning please look at us or please wait for us. Wait for us to catch up with you. We'll call on governor
and Allah says one more thing Allah subhanaw taala tells him to do that.
What is that was Maru? And listen attentively,
is maroulis from seeing me marine.
And remember that summer is of two types, what's the first type of son of Iraq, that when a person just hears the words, he hears the sounds?
And the second type of summer is off? COBOL? And is the Java to accept and respond?
So over here, let Delta believers was my rule. What does that mean? Why was my rule over here? We can understand the word was Pharaoh in both of these meanings. First of all, that listen carefully from the beginning, so that you don't have to ask, you don't have to ask him to do it for you, or to repeat something for you. Many times when we're not paying attention when our mind is elsewhere, and all of a sudden, we realize, Oh, my God, something else is being spoken about. What do we say? Could you repeat what you said? Could you repeat what you said?
And once in a while, it's understandable. But if a person continues to do that, or if a person is being asked all the time to repeat what he said, it makes life difficult.
So the believers are told was my rule, meaning Listen carefully, listen attentively from the very beginning, so that you don't have to ask the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to wait for you.
You don't have to ask him to repeat something for you.
You don't find the need to interrupt in the middle, or to ask questions at the end. Listen attentively.
Secondly, was Morrow has been understood as that listen, meaning obey, and follow what is said, obey and follow this instruction that has been given to you. Meaning don't say Raveena, again to the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
But instead, you should say, boom zona, and listen to this command, meaning, obey and follow this command,
William Katharina, and for the disbelievers for the disbelievers. Those who deny the commands of Allah,
those who play around with the words, those who show something else
will Katharina and for the disbelievers. There is another one an in a painful punishment.
Many times we say Why do I have to suffer when it's not my fault?
The believers are being told literally to change their vocabulary. Don't use this word use another word. And if we have to change the words that we have to say because of somebody else, if you feel angry, isn't it? It's not fair. Don't say that. It's not my fault. Why do I have to suffer? It's her fault. It's his fault, he should change she should change. Why do I have to change? Why should I have to make my life difficult?
Allah says what is caffeine?
Okay, fine, life is not fair. But in the Hereafter, Justice will be established.
For those who deny the commands of Allah, there is punishment, there are consequences.
So what do we learn from this ayah?
What do we learn from the side from the very beginning?
that whenever Allah says yeah, are you Han Latina Amano? What should we do? Listen with attention.
Also, we learned from this ayah that when a person starts calling others towards the deen of Allah, when a person starts calling others towards the book of Allah, what happens? There are some people who listen to Him, who like him, who accept Him, who admire him.
And there are others who do not.
There are others who oppose the person.
And this opposition or this dislike comes out in various forms. Sometimes it comes out, as you know, open hostility. And other times it is expressed through words.
Sometimes it is expressed through words. And this is exactly what the Bernie Australia we're doing.
Now, they had no justification for not believing in the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in the Quran.
So what are they doing? They're
making fun, mocking.
And this is the way of a person who is defeated.
Who doesn't have any justification left? Who doesn't have any strong arguments left? What does he do? He comes down to being obscene in his speech to being vulgar in his speech. Instead of accepting his mistake, what does he do? He uses bad language.
So what should the diary do? What should the person do the person who is calling others to the way of Allah? What should he do?
He should start pointing fingers at them. Is it going to help? No. What should he do changes with
Similarly in life, sometimes we feel that some people, they don't accept the wrongs that they're doing. They don't change their ways. And we are the ones who are suffering. What should we do?
We shouldn't come down to the same level.
Sometimes we feel, yes, she said this to me, I'm going to say this, and this and this to her, don't come down to taking revenge, because then what's the difference between you and them, there's none left, you're supposed to be better. Just change your way. Don't give them an opportunity.
From this, I also we learned that in our speech, we should be very careful about the words that we use. When addressing someone, when talking to someone,
they use the word loreena, which could have multiple meanings depending on how you stretch the vowels, or Arina, florina, or inner, our inner in just the stretch of ours, that's it.
So we have to be careful with the choice of words as well, that we choose, we shouldn't use ambiguous expressions.
Also, we learned in this ayah that we should not use words that insult others, we should not address a person in a manner that could be insulting for him.
And this is something very important. A believer does not use abusive words. Allah says yeah, are you a Latina? Manu latter holo.
A believer does not use abusive words.
His speech is pure, from words that harm others that hurt others that humiliate others, that mark and others
also we see from this is that when someone is speaking, we should listen to them attentively. Whether it is our child, who is telling their story of what happened at school,
or it is our spouse who is telling us what they did at work, or it is our sibling or it is our parent or a teacher, anyone, whenever somebody is speaking to us, what should we do? Listen attentively, this is part of good manners. This is part of being considered. The other person is talking, listen attentively, show some care,
show some attention.
And we should listen attentively from the beginning. So that we don't have to ask questions over and over again at the end, so that the person has to repeat that entire story. Sometimes it takes so long to repeat that entire story. So listen attentively from the beginning.
Also, we learn from this is that whenever we stop someone from doing something, what should we do? We should give them an alternate as well.
Many times we tell people, you can't talk on the phone, you can't use a computer, you can't go out, you can't do this, you can't do that. And we don't tell them what what they can do.
Because when we tell them, You can't do this at all, what happens, they're left with nothing in their hands. And an idle mind is where shaitan comes. So don't leave a person idle. Don't leave them with nothing, give them something, give them an alternate.
Also we learn from this is that it is very important to submit to the commands of Allah Subhana. Allah says, What's my rule? Listen attentively, meaning submit to the commander.
Anything that you learned that you want to share?
Some words, they may be very common amongst people, but they're not appropriate. And we should be careful about using them, we should take them out of our vocabulary,
the importance of reciting the Quran properly, because just the slight change of a Well, what does it do? It changes the word loreena. One pronounced as var enough changes the meaning if you stretch the eyes, the meaning is changed. If you don't stretch the ellipse long enough, the meaning is changed. But if a person has bad feelings in the heart, then they come out in the form of speech. When we're telling somebody about a fault that they need to correct, we should be very careful. A lot of panel data tells the believers led kulu are in a doctor, why did you say that? Arina see what happened? No. It's a very good way. Yeah, you Valentina amanu. Immediately what happens next? This
is interesting, Allah is calling us by email. What is he saying? What is he commanding? Immediately, you become interested in listening to the command. So whenever we're correcting somebody, it should be in a good way so that they are interested and they don't take offense.
So we see in this ayah, that the Muslims, they suffered opposition from the people of the book, they suffered animosity that was expressed from the people of the book.
And one was
through which they expressed it was by distorting the words and insulting the Prophet sort of bias.
So the believers were told, instead of fighting with them, instead of arguing with them, just change your own way, just change your approach.
Then Allah says,
may or will do de Latina cafaro
neither those who disbelieve men eyelid keytab, from the people of the book will machine nor the polytheists
so what do we learn
that neither those people who have disbelieved from among the People of the Book, nor those people who have disbelieved from the machine, what about them, they don't like a universal or a common Hydra never become that any good should be sent down to you, from your Lord.
So, those people who disbelieve they do not want any good for you. May you what do you what do is from the roof letters, well, then then
what are what
which means love,
but it is used for intense love, pure love.
It is such love that a person has from the depths of his heart.
So my yo what do Latina cafaro the disbelievers they do not like at all.
They do not want at all,
who do not want
a Latina those people who cafaro they have disbelieved which disbelievers men from among a little kita People of the Book,
the word is used for family. And it is also used for those who have something or those who deserve something.
So over here, I hope gives the meaning of those who have
what do they have al Qaeda but the book.
So I located is a term that is used for the Jews and the Christians. Why? Because they are the people who have scripture, as opposed to the miyun who did not have any scripture.
The Arabs, the one who is married, they didn't have a book. They didn't have a revealed scripture.
But the Jews, they had the Torah and the Christians, they had the interview. So therefore, ethno Kitab is a term that is used for the Jews and Christians. So those who have disbelieved from among the People of the Book, who else does not want Waller and nor al Masri came, those people who do [???].
And mushrikeen is the plural of the word machinery. Just remove the yarn from the end machinery and machinery. You see the word begins with mean
the word begins with mean what does that show? No one who is doing the action? So much rake is one who does [???]. One who does [???]? And what does she mean
to associate partners with Allah subhanho data, what's the literal meaning of the word chick?
To give a share, to have a share in something to be a partner. So schicke is to give a last panel garlis share to someone else or do include someone else in a loss of panel data exclusive rights
to include someone else in a loss of panel data exclusive rights, what our last thought is exclusive rights that he alone should be worshipped. He alone is the one who is the creator, He alone is the Razak is the provider, He alone is the one who helps us who takes us out of problems. So, what would you agree that if a person says such and such person he deserves such differently, so, I should do such that to him?
A person a dead person a grave? What is this all forms of should.
So, those people who do shake who are the machine referring to in the context over here primarily refers to the wish to keen of Mecca.
And then after that, in the general sense, the people of the book and in Michigan, they do not want what
and that units that are they come universalize from the reflectors Nunes a man so they do not want that it should be sent down upon you.
Who does you all refer to
the believers the Muslims, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his oma?
So they don't want that it should be sent down upon you. What should not be sent down upon you main hiring any kind of good mill have become from your Lord.
Hi is from the roof letters Hall. Yeah
and hi is anything that is beneficial and useful?
What is white,
anything that is beneficial and useful?
This beneficial thing could be something that a person has in the dunya. For example, well, food, real knowledge,
it could be something that could be a part of the deen, for example, good armor.
Similarly, it could refer to something in the Hereafter, for example, gender.
So higher is anything that is beneficial, anything that is useful.
This is the literal meaning of the word height.
But the word height in particular, is also used for wealth.
The word height in particular is also used for wealth. Because through wealth, a person can obtain a lot of good, a lot of benefits. Wealth can be very useful for a person,
obviously, depends on how a person uses it.
But over here, the word height is being used for general good. That is a correct meaning that they don't want that any good should be sent down upon you whether it is a lot or a little
bit in particular, hide over here refers to Revelation.
It refers to Revelation, ye
knowledge from a loss penalty.
Just as previously in number 90, we learned that follow the special favor. What does that refer to Prophethood.
So over here, we learned that height in particular refers to
knowledge that Allah sometimes advocates,
so they don't want that any good should be sent down upon you from your Lord, whether it is worrying, whether it is the Quran, whether it is commands, whether it is laws, or any, any kind of good, whether it is well, anything at all, they don't want any good for you. Why?
Why is it that these people do not want any good for the Muslims?
Because, first of all, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they were in particular jealous.
They suffered from jealousy.
They couldn't stand to see any height with the believers.
Because obviously, the bunny Australia they were expecting that the messenger would be from amongst them and all of a sudden if he comes from somebody else from another group, that develop feelings of jealousy amongst them.
And when a person develops such feelings for another, what happens? He doesn't like that. The person should benefit in any way whatsoever.
A person who is jealous of another does not want any good for him.
So I'll also panel data is telling us over here very clearly, that these people do not want any good for you with respect to the dounia and the
no know that they are not your well wishers. These people are not your well wishers.
But remember, that at the same time, they cannot take the good away from you. Why?
Because it is hide in middle of people Pico it is good from your Lord.
And what a person is jealous of another and he doesn't want that person to benefit from the good. Is this jealousy going to help him at all? Is his jealousy going to take the good away from the other person? No, because it is a loss of penalties decision. It is the division of a law. And when a person is jealous in this way, who is he harming himself? Who is he objecting to? A loss of God His division?
So Allah says over here, will La Jolla de su and Allah chooses Bharat Mata he with his mercy, Manisha whoever he will
allow chooses for his mercy whomsoever He wills, it's not the decision of people. It's the decision of Allah. It's the will of Allah.
The way he does, so, is from the roof that is called slot slot,
card slot slot.
And if the false means to specify something, or to single out something, to select something,
so yeah, so he selects, he specifies, he chooses, he is singled out baramati with his mercy. What does it mean by aka sadirah hottie meaning he chooses whoever he wants to bestow His mercy upon.
It's not the choice of people. It's not the choice of the creation. It's the choice of Allah.
He chooses who he wants to give his special mercy to
And remember again, that Russia over here, okay, generally mercy, but more specifically over here, mercy over here verse to the prophethood. That was given to Muhammad Allah.
So Allah chooses whoever he wants to bestow His mercy upon, it's not the choice of people.
It's a last choice.
Well, Ah ha, and Allah is a little further away, he is a possessor of great bounty, meaning he has great bounty, he gives a lot as well. Remember, father's surplus, extra, and a gift that is given his way?
So he is the possessor of Father, what does it mean by that? Meaning he has a lot. And he gives a lot as well.
He has a lot, and he gives a lot as well.
And what kind of father does he have? Are we great in quantity, as well as in quality. So what do we learn from this if
no one can harm any other person, except by the will of Allah, except by the permission of Allah,
the disbelievers from other people of the work as well as the machine, they don't want good for the believers, meaning they're not well wishers for the believers, with regards to dunya, or archaea. And this was especially the case at the time of the prophets are allowed.
This was especially the case at the time of the prophets of Allah.
Allah gives His mercy his blessings to whomsoever He wants, it's his choice.
When a person is jealous, he only harms himself, he cannot harm the person whom he is envious, or
We should depend on our last panels Allah for everything.
So first of all, we see in this ayah, that a person should accept the fact that a loss of panel data has given some things to some people, and not to others.
So a person should accept the division of a loss.
There is no point in objecting to the division of a loss.
There is no point in not accepting it. Because if a person does not accept it, he's not going to change anything, he cannot change anything at all. So it's better to just accept things as they are.
Also, we see that in this dunya, in this world, human beings have been sent for a test.
And part of this test is that in this dunya, a person will have friends, and he will also have enemies.
A person has those who admire him, and those who dislike
those who become his friends. And those have become his enemies. This is a reality of life. This is a part of them. So accept it.
If you want to become friends with someone and they don't become your friends, accept it. That's just how it is. It's a reality of life. It's a fact of life.
So instead of complaining, we should remember that this will happen.
And also we see that in this life. A person may come across those people who have ill feelings for him.
You may come across people who don't like you, who want bad for you,
who don't want good for you. But what you do remember
that in the public via dinner, indeed all bounty is in the hands of a muscle.
And also we should remember that no one can cause loss to us. If Allah subhanaw taala does not win so there's a hadith in musataha, in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said we're alone. And no matter the weather tomorrow, either Indian for oka lumion for oka. Ellerbee Shea in Cata hula hula wala which tomorrow, amiable ruca lamea Baraka illa vishay in Qatar, bajo la liga, roofie, RT Colombo are just such a sort of
know that even if the nation or the entire community meaning every single person were to gather together to benefit you with something, they would not benefit you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded for you.
If everybody gets together in order to benefit you with something, they cannot do so except with only that thing which allows the panel data has already written for you.
And on the other hand, if they gather together to harm you with something, they would not be able to harm you with anything except that which Allah subhanaw taala has already recorded against you.
The pens have been lifted, and the pages have dried.
So what does that show?
What does that show
that all good comes from the last panel data alone.
Also, we see that upward
Since has said, a person's jealousy, cannot steal anything away from
another person's jealousy cannot steal anything away from us if a Lost Planet Allah does not want, if he does not wish.
So if you have something, me confident, it is from Allah, not from people.
I will have it for as long as Allah gives it to me. And if it's taken away from me, it's not because of people. It's because Allah subhanaw taala didn't want me to have it.
Many times when we get something, what do we think it's because of this person? It's because of that person. It's because of my job. It's because of my career. It's because of my education. It's because of these links and these friends that I had, these connections that I have, who is the one who gives it? a must.
And if we lose something again, instead of blaming others, what should we think it was a lot of decision.
Also, we see over here in this ayah that Allah says a universal or Aleikum, mean hiren Mira become that some good comes to you from your Lord.
Notice how Allah says Miss have become your
remember that a lot of panel data when he is what does it mean?
That He is the Creator, the master, the owner, the planner of the entire creation of everybody.
But remember, that Ruby of Allah subhanaw taala is of two types.
Ruby, meaning his being club is of two types.
The first type is that which is genuine, it is on what does he mean by that?
That he is the verb He is the Creator. He is a nourisher. He is a provider of everyone.
Like we read in Silicon Valley, and hamdu lillahi Robben Island Allah amin, amin means into our creation.
Then there is the second type of rubia which is hos which is specific. What does that mean?
That he provides special nourishment, special care, special provision, just some of his creation.
And what is that special nourishment, special risk?
fee, the deed there is an off duty.
So over here Allah says milak become from your Lord, this rubia is hot it is specific Why? Because your Lord meaning the one who doesn't just give you food and water and shelter, but the one who also gives you knowledge of the deen
also we see in this ayah that will loja De Soto rahmati, Manisha Allah subhanaw taala selects for his mercy, whomsoever He wins.
Sometimes others are jealous of what we have. Right?
And sometimes, it's the opposite.
What is that?
We are jealous of what other people have.
Chip on puts the feelings of jealousy in our hearts for others. What should we do?
What should we do?
know that this is the decision of Allah. Don't look at what other people have. don't wish for those things. And instead, tell yourself this is the decision of Allah. This is the division of them.
Many times, you know if a person all of a sudden is getting good marks, they Ace the exam, they get the highest marks in the group. They always know their lesson. Similarly, a person he's making friends with people who are very famous, what happens?
We become jealous.
So instead of feelings of jealousy, what should we think this is the risk of Allah? This is the provision of
also we see that will not who will father ugly. Allah is a possessor of great bounty. But do we learn from this? Allah has a lot. Allah gives a lot. If you want something, don't be jealous. What should we do?
If he can give something to one person, you can give it to you as well.
So a lot of them father, Arlene, if you want something as a loss of panel data with the conviction that he can give anything.
So when we want something we should ask Who else?
man and Solomon as we do not abrogate a verse, owner and see her or cause it to be forgotten. Not to hide him in her except that we bring forth one that is better than it ultimately her or similar to it. And I'm Tara them and alohar their condition included. Do you not know that Allah is over all things competent?
As we have seen in the previous verses, the Bani Israel, the Jews who lived in Medina, they would come up to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they would meet him, they would sit in his gatherings, they would
asked him a lot of questions, they would pose a lot of objections.
And the main problem that they suffered from was jealousy.
The main problem that they suffered from was that they couldn't accept the fact that he was made a profit.
So, as a result, this feeling of jealousy, or this animosity would be expressed in different different ways. Sometimes it would come out in distorting the words, other times it would come out, in mocking at the profits or loss.
And other times, it would come out by creating doubts in the hearts of the people about the profit sort of audience and
why so that people would not benefit from it. So that people would not learn from the people are not confident in him.
So over here, the bunny is Australian, they posed another objection, they made another objection, which was that if the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is truly the Messenger of Allah, and the Quran? is a Book from Allah, then how come? Some of the commands of the Quran are completely different from the commands that were given in the Torah?
you see, so many times we have read that the Quran is Muslim? It is one that confirms the previous books isn't. And part of that is that the content is similar? The theme is similar.
So they would say that if you say that this book is from a lot and how come there are some commands that are completely different?
Okay, some commands they're the same. But how come some commands are entirely different?
It cannot be from Allah soprano data?
This is one objection. Another objection was that How come you know you're given one token, you Muslims, you follow one command, one particular law and an after some time, it has changed. After some time you follow another command.
For example, when the Muslims when they came to Medina, they were facing Jerusalem in prayer, they would face the vital markers in print.
And then later on, and I was revealed, which is also in sort of Bukhara, which commanded the Muslims to face the Kaaba insulin.
So they would say that look, Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he commanded his companions to do one thing, and then he forbade it.
So these were objections that they came up with what that first of all, how come? If you say the Quran is from Allah, the commands are not exactly the same as they are in the Torah.
Or secondly, that if you say, this is from Allah, how come you follow one rule? And then you change it after some time? How come? Why?
And this they did? Why? To create doubts in the hearts of the people so that they would not follow the profits or
they lose their faith as well.
And why did they come up with these objections? Because they had nothing left to say. There's an anecdote of a fox that is said about that this Fox wants, she was going in the jungle, and there was a grapevine, and she wanted to get hold of the grapes. She wanted to eat them. I don't know if Fox would eat grapes, but it's an attitude. It's a story. So she jumped and jumped and jumped and tried to get hold of the grapes, but she was enabled. So eventually, she said, Well, nevermind, the grapes are sour anyway.
So similarly, when a person is not able to win an argument, what does he do? He says, Oh, this thing, it's not worth it anyway.
Because similarly, when they had nothing left to say, then they would come up with objections within the
they would come up with apparent contradictions that are found in the Quran only apparent.
So Allah subhanaw taala gives the answer over here.
Allah says murnane supplement if
we do not abrogate any iron
ore, which ever if we ever get
the word man over here is understood in two ways. First of all, it is understood as math, meaning that which whatever, whichever, so whichever ayah we abrogate.
Secondly, math is understood as a matter of nothing, meaning of negation giving the meaning of not
and if you consider Matt to be not, then remember the rule of mapping not that there should be an ala that is following you. But in this ayah you don't see an issue.
Correct you don't see it.
So the language they say that there is an implied in it's not written it's not said but it is implied it is understood where right before
so it is man and suffering as an owner and CEO Illa net DB Hiraman
In either case, the meaning is the same
so if you see the translation of man is whatever or mat as not, don't say that oh my god, this is different. It's the same at the end of the day okay. So moments document at NASA is from the roof letters noon scene,
known scene, Nussle.
And the witness has several meanings in the Arabic language.
First of all pneus means is
to erase something,
to wipe out something to remove something.
For example, it is said nessa hottie Sham, so when the sun removed, it wiped off the shade? How?
Think about it?
When does the shade finish? Or when does it move
by the movement of the sun by the coming out of the sun. So NASA had the shamsul limit, meaning the sun removed the shade.
So first of all nest means do I have something to erase something to remove something?
Secondly, nothing means nothing to copy, to transcribe?
What does it mean, to transcribe or to copy
that something is written in a particular place, and you copy it off from there. It doesn't mean that you transfer what is written from one document to another and you delete the previous document No, you just make another copy.
So that's also means to copy or to transcribe.
NASA, from the same root is used for a scribe
who is a NASA a scribe.
It is that necesito kita, meaning I copied the book, I copied the document.
So the second meaning of nurse is to copy or to transcribe.
Thirdly, not means to replace.
What does it mean, to replace to remove one thing and bring another in its place?
What does it mean?
To remove one thing and bring another in its place?
So you have three meanings of the word nossal in the Arabic language.
If you look at it, the process of writing, what does that include? Whatever you have in your mind, you transcribe it. You copy it from your mind, onto the paper.
And sometimes in writing, what do you do? You edit? So you erase some, and you write something else in its place? Right? So the process of writing includes all of these three things.
So none. So this is the literal meaning of the word pneus.
Now, what is the technical meaning of the witness?
What is the definition of the witness?
In the Sharia is the abrogation. By the way, what does the word abrogate mean? in the English language? abrogate is to remove something,
to abolish something, to nullify something by authoritative action, like a person has the authority and therefore he nullifies something.
So now the inertia here is the abrogation of a ruling the abrogation of a ruling by a ruling that was revealed after
the abrogation of a ruling by a ruling that was revealed after it. What does it mean?
There was a command, there was a command that was being practiced, that was implemented, what does not mean to bring another ruling in its place? And that ruling replaces the previous ruling.
This is the meaning of the witness. The example that I gave you off was that when the Muslims, when they went to Medina, what were they doing? They were facing Jerusalem? That was a ruling that was a command that they had to follow. What happened? Another ruling was sent, which was that you face the governor, you face, McDonough
and this ruling, what did it do? It abrogated the previous ruling.
So this is the meaning of the word pneus. The literal meaning and the technical meaning.
Over here, law says, Man and sir we do not abrogate men, if any, if at all.
I overhear refers to and I have the Quran referring to that ayah which has a ruling in
that ayah which has a ruling in it
because remember that pneus or abrogation is only done off rules of laws not of you know the information that we have been given.
For example, you don't find us in the stories that are mentioned in the Quran that are at one place you find one account another place you find a completely different account. No. Nazca is only with regards to rulings with regards to commands. Okay, so I have over here the first two which is not Kony shutter. Okay. And I have the Quran an ayah that has some judgment in it that has some ruling in it that has some law in it. So, man and submit anything we do not do not have any
How is this done?
We do not abrogate and how is this done? That either the ayah is completely removed or the command is removed and it is replaced by something else?
Oh or known see her? We make it forgotten. We cause it to be forgotten.
The word known see her is from the roof letters known seen Yeah.
Known seen. Yeah.
What does Miss Eonni different.
So none see her, we cause it to be forgotten.
Nithya is when a person forgets something that he knew.
When a person forgets something that was known to him, he doesn't remember it anymore.
So I don't see how or we cause it to be forgotten. What does it mean by that?
That we completely remove it from your heart, we make you forget it.
We make you forget the idea completely.
Who does you refer to
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or even the believers at the time of the Prophet sort of
net thing, we come behind him in her with something that is better than
what does it mean by that net D behind him in her we bring a ruling we bring an ayah that is better than the one that was abrogated.
So, what do we learn from this idea so far?
Whatever, whatever ruling whatever command of last abrogates it is replaced by what? by something that is much better than it How is it better? How was it?
How was it better think of it,
it is more beneficial for the people. Because remember higher is that which is beneficial. So it has more benefit in it for the people.
Similarly, it is better how because it is easier for the people
it is easier for the people.
Similarly, it is better how that it contains much more reward for the people.
In observing this command, there is much more reward for them.
Not to mention minha we bring something that is better than it ultimately her or an IRA that is like it.
What does that mean by like it's similar to it
in terms of reward, in terms of the command, the ruling?
Why does Allah subhanaw taala do this?
How come he doesn't just tell us about the command once? Why does he give one command and then how can he abrogate the command and replaces it with another? Allah says lm darlin, do you not know and the law that Indeed Allah or that Galicia included, is powerful, he is able over every single thing.
The name of the last panel, Dr. Cuddy is from the roof letters of that
of that CUDA.
And CUDA is ability power.
When one has the ability and the power to do what he wants, he is able to do, he is able to execute his will, he's able to execute his decision.
So, Allah is able over every single thing, he can execute his word, he can do whatever he wants. So, if he wants to change the command that He has given, he has the authority to do that.
He can do it.
What does this ayah tell us?
This ayah tells us that just as a last panel data, bestows his special mercy of prophethood to some, he has the power to do that. Similarly, it is his will to replace and abrogate one revelation by another
We cannot object to his decision,
if he decides to give profits to one person and not to another, whose will is it.
Similarly, if he decides to replace one command with another, whose will is it, that is his, he is alone he has studied, he can do whatever he wants.
And this ayah is telling us about musk about abrogation in the Quran.
Remember, that abrogation or pneus is of three types.
Nothing is of three types.
The first type of pneus is the abrogation of the ayah. Without the ruling,
what is it
the abrogation of the ayah? Without the ruling? What does it mean? That the verse only the if only, the text only is removed, but the ruling is still applied, it is still practiced
the ayah was initially revealed. It was a part of the Quran. But then what happened? The I was removed from the club, by a loss of data, and then the ruling was still applied.
What's the example of this?
There was an idea of
the command of stoning the adultery to death, as a punishment for adultery. That was done by who? a married man or a married woman.
This was, for example, there's a hadith and more in mathematics, in which we find that the ayah was a shadow a shadow it as Anya, for jumbo Houma, Alberta, that the married man and the married woman, when they commit adultery, when they commit fornication, then what should you do? stone them to death?
Now this text, you will not find it in the Quran. But is this command still applicable? Yes, it is. So the first type of Nestle is Nestle. Did Allah do
the abrogation of the verse without?
This is the first type of Nestle.
The second type of Nestle is the abrogation of the ruling, without the verse, the exact opposite.
What is it? The abrogation of the ruling of the command? Without the verse? What does that mean? That the verse is still recited, it is still a part of the Quran. But the routing does not apply anymore.
The ruling does not apply anymore.
For example, there's an I inserted bacala i a number 240, in which we learn that a widow, a woman whose husband dies, her waiting period is for one year.
That's the if it is still there in the front.
But this command was abrogated by another command, which told us that it is four months in 10 days.
So it is not applicable anymore. But the verse is still present in the Quran.
So this is a second type of notice.
The third type of mosque is the abrogation of the ruling and reverse.
What does it mean?
That the command is not applicable anymore. And the verse is also not there in the Quran.
the command is not applied, and the verses also not there,
for example, or you should have the learner she knows that it had been revealed in the Quran, that 10 sucklings have a baby with a woman made marriage unlawful. It was revealed in the Quran that if a child was fed by a woman 10 times, then he would be considered her son.
Because, you know, in the law, what happens is that a child can be breastfed by another woman.
And if a child is breastfed by another woman, according to the previous hurco, minimum 10 times, then he would be considered her son. Okay. But this was later abrogated by five suckling,
that if a child is given suck, how many times five times minimum, then he is considered person.
So what's the third type of muscle the abrogation of the ruling and reverse?
Now the question is, why not? What's the reason behind it? Or rather, what is the wisdom behind?
Why does the last panel data dunas How come a command was revealed and it was later changed, or how common it was revealed it was later removed?
How come the text of the ayah is still there? But the ruling is not applied anymore? How come? What's the wisdom behind it?
So first of all, for the purpose of gradual implementation of the, or gradual implementation of the laws that our last panel data give to the people,
for example, the hook of the law concerning alcohol being heroin.
How did it come?
About the first term concerning it was, that's it, alcohol is forbidden? No, it came gradually. The first was that there is more harm in alcohol than there is benefit. So what did that show to the Muslims? It's not really that beneficial. If there's benefit, the harm is more, so maybe I shouldn't do it.
Then the next command was that do not press Allah, when you are drunk, when you're intoxicated. If a person has to pray five times a day, then during the day, obviously, you're not going to drink. And if you drink during the night, then what's going to happen? You might miss as much.
So this way, the Muslims were practically removed away from alcohol. And then finally, there was a hook revealed in the Quran, that made alcohol forbidden. So we see that through this nurse, what happened?
The Sharia or the laws were gradually implemented. Why? So that the Muslims were mentally prepared to accept the comments.
And we learned that when the last hurricane concerning the alcohol when it came, the streets of Medina were flooded with alcohol. Why? Because whatever alcohol people had, they just ditched it the through it.
If a person who was about to drink from a cup, he just threw it. If a person had it in his mouth, he spat it out. This was the way of the Sahaba. And if on the first day, they were told, that's it, alcohol is forbidden, nobody would leave it.
As we have seen that, in the US, for example, in the 1920s, the prohibition in which the consumption of alcohol and other things related to it, they were completely forbidden. What happened after a few years, they had to lift that Then
because people were not mentally ready. They were not mentally prepared to accept it.
So we see that in us, there is great wisdom. One of them is that the laws of Islam they were gradually implemented so that people were able to accept them, people were able to follow them. It was easier for them.
So this is one wisdom that we learned.
What other benefits are there? What do you think?
Another reason is just for the believers.
For example, we learn incidental bacala I number 143. But when Allah subhanaw taala changed the Qibla from Jerusalem to Makkah, Allah said lol the Naira, llama, mania, Tabby, river Sula, Mayan caribou, Allah occupy, so that we know who is the one who truly follows the messenger, and who is the one who turns around on his feet, meaning who turns back to display.
The main wisdom, the main test behind abrogation is to see who is it that truly and completely obeys.
If Allah tells me one thing today, I do it and if it tells me another thing tomorrow, do I still do it? Or do I object?
This shows the sincerity of the faith of the believer. And this was something very important at the time of the Prophet sallallahu.
inshallah, as we will learn, there were people who only pretended to be believers. And these tests when they came, it showed the reality. It showed who they really were, were they actually believers or were they not?
So another wisdom behind us is to test the believers.
One more is to show us that Allah subhanaw taala can do what so ever you pleases.
It is his laws. It is his Sharia. He can do whatever he wants. He has complete authority.
Allah tells us insulates the enemy. 30 9pm from law who Masha.
Allah eliminates whatever he wills or confirms that it's his choice. It says Well,
he can eliminate it, he can change it, it's his choice.
Another reason or another wisdom behind us is that the new command is more beneficial for the people.
It is easier for the people.
As we see in this ayah Allah says not to be Heidi minha omit
we bring that which is better than it or that way
is similar to it.
So in other wisdom is that the new command is beneficial for the people. And it is also easier for the people. For example, the third type of nurse that I told you about which I should have done, and she noted that 10 sucklings was the minimum, and then it was changed to five. Now what's easier, tender, five, five is easy.
So, another wisdom is ease for the believers.
Also, we see that many times the nurse when it was done, the new ruling was much lighter, much easier compared to the previous one.
For example, we see inserted and fell in number 66, in which Allah Subhana Allah says that now, Allah has made it easier for you.
Basically, after the battle, a lot of times I told the believers that if there are 10 of you, you should be able to overcome to 100 of you.
And if there are 100 of you, you should be able to overcome 1000 it is difficult, isn't it?
So then, the video is we're told that now, Allah has made it easier for you. So if there are 100 of you, you should be able to overcome 200. So the ratio was decreased, before it was one to 10. Now it is one to two. So another wisdom is that the new command is easier for the people, it is more beneficial.
Another benefit is to increase the reward for the building
to increase the reward for the believers. How will that be that if the abrogating verse, if the new command is more difficult, it has the opposite effect. If the new command is more difficult,
then what does that show that the reward for that deed will be multiplied, it will be more compared to the reward for the previous command.
For example, initially, the Muslims didn't have to pray five times a day in German, but later on, is five times a day.
Right? So it's more work, more abundance, which means more reward. So there is benefit in it.
Also, we see that in us, there is great mercy of Allah subhanaw taala as well.
There is great mercy of Allah,
that if the ruling is abrogated, and the verse is kept in the Quran. What does that show? What does that remind us who are reading the Quran today?
At the special mercy of that how Allah soprano data has been so merciful to us
that just imagine if there a day of the widow was one year.
It is still there in the Quran, but it is not applied. But when we read that, what does that show us? the mercy of a loved one is a reminder of Allah soprano. God has mercy upon us.
And the wisdom behind retaining that particular ayah in the Quran, although the ruling is not applied anymore. What's the benefit in that you read it, and you still take my word for it.
Although you don't do Ramadan it, but you read it, and you still get rewarded for
it. So we see that there is a lot of benefit in NUS.
There's a book by Chelsea also called an introduction to the sciences of the Quran. And there is an entire chapter on this.
And I encourage all of you to read that chapter. It's very detailed, it has a lot of examples, and inshallah it will clarify a lot of your confusions if you have any.
And even if you don't have any confusions, even if you know this from before, it'll be a good reminder.
I was reading this book again. And it was as I was reading it for the first time. Because every time you read, it reminds you It refreshes what you know already. The book is the introduction to the sciences of the Quran, it's available at the bookstore as well.
So we've seen this ayah that the bunny is trying. They objected that how come if you say that the Quran is from Allah, it is different from the Quran.
Or how come if you say this Quran is from Allah, one day you follow one ruling, and another day that ruling is changed. What does Allah say? That whatever ruling Allah changes, what happens Allah bring something that is better than it. There is great wisdom behind
and remember that there are two types of nuts in the Quran.
I gave you the three types of nuts but there is another categorization as well, which is that the first type of nurse is the gender illness.
What does it mean by that?
That the Quran has abrogated all of the commands of the previous books.
The Quran has abrogated what
All of the commands of the previous books. Why? Because the commands in the Quran are much better for the people today.
For example, we learned about the bunny Slayer, that part of their Sabbath is that they're not allowed to do any work at all. Right? They're not allowed to do any work at all. If this was still applied today, would it be easy? No.
So the Quran is NASA of all the previous books. This is why you will find similarity in the commands that are given to us in the Quran and in the commands that were given to the Bani Israel. But they're not identical. Why? Because the commands that have been given now are much easier and are more relevant to today.
So this is the general type of message.
And the second type of message is the specific message, which is that the verses of the Quran
are abrogated by other verses of
the verses of the Quran or abrogated by other verses of the Quran.
Then the last panel tada says, Adam darlin, do you not know and Allaha that Indeed, Allah Lahu for him, meaning To Him belongs, what belongs to him moil customer what he will have the dominion, the kingdom of the heavens and there
was a supreme power
and loss of penalty.
And if he has that, should he not have the choice to change the commands that he gives? Of course he should. And he does. So do not know that to Allah belongs the entire kingdom of the heavens and the earth. If everything is in the hands of Allah, then he has a right to give us whatever command that he wants.
What are we supposed to do?
one miner calm and there is not for you. mendola besides Allah, meanwhile Ian, anybody, any close friend, well and asleep, nor any helper,
the word Well, he is from the newsletters. Well, lamb Yeah.
It isn't the route letters. Well, lamb. Yeah.
And Wiley Walia literally means to be close, to be close to another, to be near.
So a Wally is a close friend.
Who is he? a close friend,
the word when he also applies to the Father, or the closest male relative of a woman.
Doesn't the word really apply to the Father? Right? Why because he is close to her. And he is also one who protects it.
So welling is used for a friend who is very close, and also a friend who protects a guardian, a protector.
So what does it mean by you do not have besides Allah, anybody,
meaning anyone who is close to you, who could bring something to you, who could bring some benefit to you?
While I'm asleep, nor any helper, the ordinance leaders in the room fetters moonsault off. No one saw the law
and asleep is someone who helps at the time of injustice and oppression.
So when a person is suffering from injustice, when a person is suffering from oppression, this lead is one who comes and takes the person out of it.
So you have no money and you have no one asleep. besides Allah. What does that mean?
That you have no Wali, meaning no one who can bring some higher to you. And no Nestle, meaning no one who could remove some evil from you.
So if a person does not obey Allah, then what? He has no Valley and he has been asleep.
So this part of the eye is a reminder to us that don't become doubtful. Don't become skeptical. Believe in the Quran as it is and know that there is great wisdom in us.
And if you object Who are you going to harm yourself? You would have No One No One asleep. Besides.
That's listen to the recitation and then we will extract lessons from this.
long we'll be off Matty. He may be
the first thing that we see in this ayah is that not for abrogation is present in the Quran and it cannot be denied.
There are only a few verses, but it is still present. It makes sense logically and it occurs in the shadow as well. Because there are some people who say that no, no there is no nothing
is there in the Quran which is why Allah tells us so it is a part of the Quran.
Also, we see in this idea that the abrogating verse is better than the verse that is abrogated.
The abrogating ruling is better than that ruling, which is abrogated.
Also, we see that there is immense wisdom in us. And in different times, different rulings are better for the people.
If at the beginning, in Makkah, the people were told no alcohol,
they wouldn't be able to follow this ruling. But they were told later on in Medina.
So we see that in different times, different rulings are suitable for people are better for people.
This is why the Quran is the nastiest of all the previous books as well.
Because the rulings they were changed from one carrier to another, each messenger when he came, he brought a new set of rulings. By way they changed. Why did the same as they were given to Adam Madison the first day
because times have changed, things have changed. Therefore, different rules would apply. For example, at the time of admission, marriage between siblings was permissible. Why? Because there were only a few people.
But today, it is absolutely hot on why because the situation has changed.
So from this, we cannot say that okay, you know, it's been 1400 years since the Quran was revealed. And now things have changed. So we should also change, you know, the laws of Islam. No, this is not what we learned from this.
The final laws that Allah subhanaw taala has given us they are applicable, and they are beneficial for the Muslims were so ever they are
because they are all high, they are all beneficial for people, no matter where they are, no matter which time, no matter which place, no matter which area, no matter which country, which land, whatever age, the commands that Allah has given in the final Sharia, they are the best. And they're applicable everywhere.
Also, we've seen this if there are lots of panel data has the ability over everything and everyone
and olara, that Galicia in Cadiz, everything and everyone.
And Allah subhanaw taala has pulled it off. He has the ability, over tangible matters, as well as intangible matters,
tangible matters, physical issues, physical things, and intangible for example, with regards to revolution, he has the ability to change the commands if he wants to.
Also we see that the commands that are Lost Planet Allah has given to us they are the best. Because what does Allah say?
D behind him, and we bring that which is better than it. So what's the goal, that ultimately the commands that are given, they are best for the people, they are in their best interest.
Also, we've seen this ayah that our last panel data is the medic, he is the owner. He is a sovereign of everything.
He has the bulk of SMRT will have the heavens and
also we learned from here that none can bring benefit or remove harm if Allah subhanaw taala intends evil for a person.
So what should be our focus? People know who should be our focus?
Allah subhanaw taala, obeying Him and pleasing
so whatever he gives to us, what should we do? So marijuana for a foreigner without any objections?
federal law says until you do or do
Want, do you all wish and just Allura sulaco that you ask your messenger
when it comes at the beginning of a sentence, then a question is being asked.
We learned earlier, ends up the home.
Lampton did, I'm came in the middle of the verse in the middle of the sentence. It's not a question over there. But over here, um, comes at the beginning of a sentence. So, um, gives the meaning of a question, doo
doo dee doo, or is it that you all want? Or is it that you all wish
to rejoin us from the newsletters? Or? Ah, well, then from the word, Elrod, and what does it mean?
What is intention?
Nia, what is that?
A Nia is the intention is the reason why you do something,
the reason why a person does something, what is the goal that he wants to obtain by doing a particular action?
What is the goal that a person wishes to obtain by doing a particular action. So, this is the meaning of the word irata.
Sometimes the word irata also gives the meaning of wanting something, wishing something, desiring something,
because if you think about it, irata is what you want to obtain by doing something.
So what you want is what you wish, what you desire. So over here to the donor, gives the meaning of Do you wish, do you want? Do you desire? Is this your goal? Is this what you want to do?
Who does you refer to?
You over here refers to first of all the believers,
it refers to the believers.
Secondly, it refers to all those people to whom the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wasn't
including the computer, as well as the machine,
the people of the book as well as the machine, because the profits are a lot of sudden was sent to them as a messenger.
So until they do that, or is it that you all want? And thus Aloo Rasulullah con that you question your messenger
that I know is from seen Hamza lamb, so al, to question. So that's Aloo, your question bresaola. Comb your messenger? Who does your messenger refer to?
Muhammad? sallallahu wasallam?
Why is he called your messenger?
Because he has been sent to us, regardless of whether some people believe in him or not.
Like, for example, the people of the book or the machine they didn't believe in him, but he was still a messenger was sent to them.
So do you wish to ask your messenger?
What does that mean by asking over here?
Asking over here is understood in two ways. First of all, asking questions,
just as the bunny Israeli asked about the banker, about the car, what type of account what age? What profession? What work?
So, first of all, it refers to asking too many questions when you ask him too many details, unnecessary details, unnecessary questions.
And this would obviously be in the meaning of if we take to redo now you are to be Muslims.
Second, questioning over here has been understood as demanding miracles,
Like for example, the machine they would say, we're not going to believe unless and until you do such and such, we see this miracle, and then we're going to believe.
So Allah is reprimanding all the people, the Muslims, as well as the non Muslims. That why are you asking so many questions? Whether it is questions with regards to too many details, or it is demanding miracles? Meaning Why are you asking too many questions? Do you wish to ask him questions? Come so Illa Musa, just as musallam was questioned? When blue before?
By the Bani Israel by his people?
So we see over here, that the people are being reprimanded for asking too many questions.
Now, why was this I reviewed
the mushrikeen they would demand miracles from the Prophet sort of all his sudden,
even our basketball dealer and who he said that they were two men will have even saved and raffia even had a man who came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And they said, bring us a book from heaven, which we can read.
Remember, they themselves were illiterate.
And they said, bring this up.
A book from heaven that we can read
and make rivers flow for us, because he lived in the desert. So they said, show us another miracle, make rivers flow for us, and we will follow you.
So when they made this demand, what happened? This I was revealed.
That why are you asking? Why are you demanding so many miracles? Are you doing the same thing, just as musasa was asked by his people.
So, first of all, the most shocking were being reprimanded.
Secondly, when the Jews when the burning Israel of Medina, they would come up to the Muslims, and they would put doubts in the hearts of the Muslims, just as we read in the previous is that they would come up with the Muslims. And they would say, if you say the Quran is true, then how come it is different from the Philippines? If you say the Quran is true, then how come there is mescaline.
So when they would come and say such things, the Muslims, they would become doubtful. And what would they do? They would go up to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And they would ask him questions.
They would ask him questions, one after the other.
So the Muslims also are being reprimanded. That why are you asking so many questions?
They You see, we're here for a test. And people are out there, creating doubts,
you know, asking such questions, making us doubtful.
But in this case, a person should become confident he should hold on to the truth and not let go.
Don't be so weak, that you know a person says one thing and you're completely shaken, you're completely shattered. Have some confidence, be confident about what you do. Many times we're doing something. For example, we're studying the Quran. And a friend of ours comes in she says, you couldn't miss a year of college.
And what happens to us?
Yeah, maybe I shouldn't. What am I doing?
Similarly, you studied all of that. And now you're setting the whole uncle work. Look, I made so much money. Why didn't you do the same thing?
So what happens when such things come when such questions, they come from people be concerned about what you're doing? be concerned about the faith that you have? Don't be so weak, that a person says one thing and you're completely shattered?
So over here, the Muslims are being reprimanded that Why are you asking so many questions? It's not good for you. It's not healthy. It's not a healthy attitude.
Now over here, there at all that are you going to ask questions just as musasa lamb was asked by his people.
And the question is, what did the bunny Israel demand from Masada center?
What do they demand from Masada center?
We have seen various examples so far.
Right? For example, a loss of parent Allah says in Surah Nisa, a number 153 for God sir Aloo Moosa Akbar Romans Alec Sakano arena Maha gelatin, but they had asked of musallam even greater than that, and they said, show us a law outright, as we have read earlier in sort of the Valkyrie 55 London Mina laka Hatton or la hija. So they demanded to see Allah subhanaw taala openly
what are the machine demanding? We want a river you want a book
that's nothing compared to what muscle is and I was asked what he was demanding. What else did they ask musasa
they wanted more variety of food other than our back your original journal metal metal Autumn in bhakti. What is that you have a for me? What are the see what does it have? What is that? We don't want this food we want more food.
Also, they demanded so many details about the cow.
We learned in those verses. Every now and then older Roland Allah Becca ubu, learner may
ask your Lord, pray to Lord he should clarify to us what is that?
So most artists Anam was asked many, many questions.
They demanded many things from him.
So why are we being forbidden to make demands like these? Why? Because first of all, it is disrespect to the messenger.
It is absolute disrespect to the messenger,
the Bani Israel every now and then they would say, Go ask this, go ask this, go ask this. We're not going to believe until you show this to us. So if we Muslims do the same thing.
What about this? And what about that? And how come this and how come that? What are we doing? This is disrespect at the time of the Prophet sort of ourselves to the messenger today to the way of life that Allah Subhana Allah has given us
Secondly, we have been forbidden to ask too many questions or to make such demands because it may lead a person to lose
it may lead a person towards disbelief.
Because then one thing leads to another thing, which leads to another thing, which leads to another thing.
For example, you know when people say, okay, who created all of this? Of Us?
Okay, where did we come from? Adam? He was our father. Okay, who made them?
And these questions what happens then when a person gets stuck on these questions, they lead a person to the lead a person to disbelief.
Now remember, that we're not being told, to not be inquisitive, to not be curious, do not use our minds and to just accept everything blindly. No, we are supposed to use our reason. But whatever Allah has told us, whatever the messenger has informed us are accepted as it is. Don't go on asking too many questions, one thing after the other, because this leads a person away from the right way, which is why Allah says we're making yet a bed that is coffee man. And whoever changes disbelief with a man yet a bed that is from that that lamb, what does it mean to change to alter something or do replace one thing with another. So whoever replaces a man with
whoever changes is a man to cook
forgot one last hour Sabine, then in fact, he has lost the straightway he has gone away from the right, but
the word Butler is from the roof letters, but lambda, Berlin, we have done the word bonding earlier. What does that mean? To lose one's way to go astray? So a person who adopts coffee, and he leaves a man, what is he doing?
He is going away from the correct way.
The word sour is from the root letters seen? Well, yeah.
We have done the word sweat before as well. So we're on our way to the end of London.
So what does it mean, to be equal to be the same? When something is the same from both sides?
And when something is the same from both sides? What do you have in the middle? What do you have in the middle?
Think about it when something is same from both sides. For example, you have two books that are exactly the same parallel to one another, or you have a highway on both sides, you have land and it's exactly the same then what happens in the middle you have a straight line
right? The middle is the central is a straight line.
So what gives the meaning of straight
What does it mean straight This is the first meaning of the word sour.
So, what does it mean by sour or severe
the straightness meaning the correctness of the severe of the way
person who leaves Eman adopts schofer then what is he doing?
He has gone away from the correctness of the way
the way that is leading him to is accurate.
So, in other words, he has gone history,
this is the first meaning of so as to be
Secondly, the word SOA is used for that which is central.
As I told you, it is used for that which is central that which is in the middle. So what does that mean? so as to be
the middle way, the middle lane?
What does it mean? The middle lane, the middle way?
Because the middle path, the central path, it goes straight without turning right or left, isn't it? You know, on the highway, you have the Express and you have the collectors, right? What's the Express, it's going to take you straight and the collectors, you could you could go off track anytime, because there's so many exits, so many lanes, and you could go right you could go left you could get lost very easily. That's why you have to be very alert. And when you know there are too many exits coming up, what you do is you just take the Express so that you can go straight to the destination. So so as Seville is the middle lane, the correct lane,
the middle lane, and remember that a las pantallas path is one and that is the middle path.
So what are the exits? What are the wrong ways? When a person deviates and when a person says okay, what about this? What about this thing? I don't understand what about this question? And he goes pursuing the answer for that question. And that's it. He's gone off the highway.
Like for example a person when he's not focused when he's driving and he just looks at, you know, particular sign or particular building. Well, that looks so nice. And he turns he's gone off the track. He's gone straight.
So similarly, packet loss or a severe the middle name, which is the correct name, a person when he deviates onto the side onto tangents, what is he doing? He is going off the correct way. Sometimes just a small thing that people get stuck on, and that's they don't accept. So, this is the second meaning of the word select Thirdly, the word server is also used for aim, goal
word, so it is also used for aim or goal. So for cod burner, sour sob, he has gone astray from the goal of the path.
What is the goal of the path?
What is the destination,
gender here after the pleasure of Allah?
So when a person leaves a man adopts gopher, and what is he doing? He's not going to get to the right destination. He's not going to the right place.
And the word Seville is from the roof letters seen by lamb and Sybil is used for a bat that is straight, that is easy to walk upon.
That is easy to walk upon. It is also said that Sabina is a bat, which is a common road with a lot of traffic.
It's not a lonely road.
It's not a road that is abandoned. Similarly the wave is found is not a way that is strange. It's not something which is incorrect. It's wrong. And so therefore nobody takes it No. So as to be
let's listen to the recitation of this
So what do we learn from this is?
The first lesson is that we have been prohibited from asking too many questions
and making unnecessary demands.
We have been prohibited from asking too many questions and making unnecessary demands. And this was especially the case at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when the where he was being revealed
there's a hadith that is mentioned that is reported in say Muslim, in which the Prophet sort of artists Adam said the only metal rocks to come for innama hella come and can a cappella come because ready to early him walk the laughing him Allah ambia him for either a moto condition, but two men who must apart from what he then a hater C'mon che in further Ooh, leave me with what I have left to you. Meaning leave it as it is. Don't ask too many questions. For those who were before you were destroyed because of excessive questioning. And also because of their opposition to their messengers. So when I command you to do anything, do it as much as it lies in your power. do it to
the best that you can. And when I forbid you to do anything, then abandon it.
So what do we learn from this is
that asking too many questions, creates problems for us. When we learn of something, just take it as it is. do it to the best of your ability. Because when a person asks too many questions, and he gets the answers, and then he doesn't do what he has learned. What is he doing?
there's another Hadees that is mentioned in Buhari and then a Bo said a lot ready to sell him a call in Alabama muslimeen a German man set alarm che in Lem you have them for 30 moment actually must allottee the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the most sinful person among the Muslims is the one who asked about something which had not been prohibited. But it was prohibited because of his asking something was not prohibited. And he asked about it and it became prohibited. And as a result, what happened,
life became difficult
for people of that time, and also for the many generations to come. So we see that the person should not ask too many questions, because if we do, then we create problems for ourselves. For example, the bunny is right, what did they do? There are so many questions about the cow. And eventually, the cow was so difficult to find. Right? If they were to just slaughter any cow, it was perfectly fine. But when they asked what type of account this or that this or that, then it was only a specific kind of account. And if they slaughtered any other cow, it would be wrong or nearby.
Also, we see that asking questions, in and of itself is not something that is wrong.
In and of itself. Asking questions is not something that is wrong. We should ask
questions that are relevant, that are important, that have to do with armor. But asking questions that don't really have to do with armor is something that is incorrect.
And also, what is incorrect is that a person asks one scholar. And then he goes and asks another scholar. And he goes and asks another scholar, basically is that for shopping,
you will see that any gathering that you go to, there are some typical questions. Right, for example, about mortgage about Cuba, about the behalf?
Do people not know I mean, it's been so many years that people have been living here, you still don't know. I mean, it's quite clear. And every scholar who comes is asked about these questions.
So this is also something that is incorrect, that a person asks one scholar than another scholar, because at the end of the day, what is the person looking for just an easy way out?
Just an easy way out.
This is the reason why sometimes the person asks too many questions.
Also, they see that questions should be relevant.
As I told you before, the questions should be relevant. For example, if there's a particular issue that a person wants an answer for, with regards to his Salah with regards to his locker, and he should ask about it, because if he doesn't ask about it, what's gonna happen? What's gonna happen, he's not praying correctly, or he's not giving Zakat correctly. Right. But if he says no, asking questions is not good. That's not good.
You should ask questions that are relevant to
once a student of Mr. Shelby, he asked him that, you know, if a person is supposed to break his fast, and he does not find anything to break his fast with, then you know how a person should put his finger in the sand and just use the sand to break as fast? Which finger should he use.
And I'm Sharpie pointed out to finger of his dog to the smallest of why, to show him that this is not relevant. This is not needed. If you have to break it, just break it with anything, if you don't find anything, just use any finger, I mean, person should use this common sense as well. Right? So similarly, in this ayah, we have been told, avoid excessive questioning, ask only those questions that are relevant, that are important, that have to do with ama. And if a person asks too many questions, then where's he headed?
Where is he attitude towards leaving his feet
because one thing leads to another one doubt leads to another. And eventually a person is away from the right way.
Also, another very important lesson that this teaches us is that don't get swayed by the questions of other people. Don't get swayed by the questions of other people.
Because the Muslims, they would come and ask the Prophet sallallahu Sallam all these questions Why? Because the Bani Israel would come and create doubts in their hearts.
So many times when we interact with others, you know, we're asked questions, and we're like, oh my god, I never thought of this. And if you have a doubt like this, it is good to clarify. But be confident that what you believe in is correct. It is from Allah soprano.
and be confident that if Allah has given you this command, then it is best for you.
For example, people may question you, why do you wear the hijab? And you can give them a list of you know, benefits. But still, they'll say, you know, it doesn't make sense to me. Okay, it doesn't make sense to you. It is a command of a lot. I do it because a lot of simple, so be confident in the commands that Allah has given us. Again, if there's a doubt in your heart, you should clarify. But don't be shaken because of those doubts. Don't lose your mind because Be confident
