Al-Baqarah 142-152 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 143-147
Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.
We'll review io 142. And then we'll continue,
say acuna sufa how it will be done, Nasional will love him and kibble letting him the foolish among the people will say, what has turned the Muslims away from their Qibla which Kibler and let you can really hear, which they used to face. Who are the foolish? Who are the foolish?
Those who object at the commands of Allah, those who do not accept the commands of Allah?
If you think of it, a person who is objecting.
A person who doesn't accept things as they are, we think they're very smart. We think they're very intelligent, isn't it?
But over here, if a person objects at the commands of Allah, at the decisions of Allah,
at the decree of Allah, He is not being intelligent at all. But on the contrary, he's actually being foolish.
Because we read earlier, intuitive bacara at the end of the first years, while many of our military Ibrahima ylonen, Sophie Hannah,
who is someone who is foolish, the one who turns away from the wave Ibrahim, what was the wave Ibrahim? The way of submitting to Allah Subhana Allah, because Allah is the harlot, Allah is the Malik
and only God knows what is best for us. So if a person objected the commands of Allah at the decision of Allah at the decree of Allah, what is he doing? He's acting foolishly. So over here, the foolish people, they object What are they objecting? How can these Muslims they were facing another Qibla yesterday? And today they're facing another Qibla How can they have changed their crippler? What is the response for Lila Hill machico will never say that to Allah belongs the east and the west. So if He's the owner, if he's a Holic and nomadic he has the right to decide he has the right to give the command. So if he gives the command, there should be no objection. Yeah, the Masha
illustrata Muslim He guides whomsoever He wills to a path that is straight
and who does he guide the one who is worthy of guidance? Who is a person who is worthy of guidance? A person who wants guidance, a person who doesn't object.
The next day I
work at Anika de la Come on Martin was upon and thus we have made you adjust community we have made you meaning oh you Muslims, you over here refers to the Muslim ummah.
And honestly, it begins with gallica like that, like what meaning just as we have guided you to the straight path, the previous eye ends with yendi myeshia illustrata Masaki. So, just as he has guided you to the straight path, and also he has guided you to the right direction in prayer to the right gibbler. Similarly, he has also made you an oma that is wasa
likewise he has made you or community of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and Omar that is one
other word oma, you notice from the fetters Hamza meme, meme. And oma is used for a group of living beings that are connected by some common feature or common element.
So we have made you an oma, what kind of an oma have we made you? What's your characteristic wasn't? The word was up is from the roof letters well seen, but it isn't the roof letters. Well, simple. And what's up is used for the middle part of something the center of something that which is right in the center, that which is right at the core, the mid most. And the word was used in several other ways as well. So firstly, it is used for that which is right in the middle that which is central. How is it central? either in quantity, or in distance? For example, between one and five, what's the core what's the middle? Three, right. So
First of all, it is used for that, which is right in the center, that which is in the middle that will just add the medium.
Secondly, the word was out is also used for that which is the best.
It is also used for that which is the best. Why? Because what is in the middle is the best. If you think about it, what is the best age? That which is between being a child and being an old person, right? Similarly, what is the best part of the day, the middle of the day, because you're not, you know, too tired or too sleepy as you are at the end of the day. Nor are you, you know, disoriented because of the beginning of the day. Right. So the best part of the day is the middle of the day. Similarly, when it comes to spending, what kind of spending is best, that which is free from extremes, neither being stingy, nor being extravagant.
So we learn that moderation is the best way. The moderate is the best way.
So what's up, primarily has two meanings, what are the first of all, to be right in the middle to be central? And secondly, to be the best? Now what does it mean by Martin Washington, but doesn't mean by a law statement that we have made you and oma, that is awesome.
This has been understood in several ways. First of all, it has been said that we have made you an oma, that is mid most that is mid most meaning that is right in the middle. How is it in the middle in its time of existence, in its time of existence. So in other words, this oma has come to be at a time. That is right in the middle of the timeline.
From the beginning of the creation of the human beings, until the Day of Judgment until the end of this dunya the oma was up the Muslim Ummah has gone right at the time that is in the middle in the timeline. This is one way of looking at it.
Others have said that no, it doesn't refer to time. But what it means is that when it comes to the laws that have been given to this woman, the commands that have been given to this woman, they are the most Margaret
they're the most moderate
the laws of Islam, neither do they exceed balance. Nor do they teach us to completely abandon the deen isn't it? For example, the previous owners, we've learned about Bani Israel on Saturday, they were not allowed to do anything related to the dunya anything at all. But the Muslim woman has been allowed to do other things as long as it established the Juma Sunnah on Friday, isn't it?
So Omar was that how that in laws, this oma is the most Margaret, the laws that have been given to us. They neither exceed their religion, nor do they tell us to abandon their religion. So the laws of Islam are most fair, they are most balanced. And they're also free from extremes. They're also free from extremes. Now remember, when people say moderate Muslim, it doesn't mean that a moderate Muslim is one who does not practice Islam as it should be practiced. Okay?
a moderate Muslim, a moderate oma, is that amount which follows the dean as it should be followed. Because Dean is moderation, leaving it is not moderation. And going beyond it also, is not moderation. For example, moderation is that a person observes the five prayers. And if a person says no, I'm going to perform six per six is also focused on me. That is what that is exceeding the thing.
Okay. And similarly, if a person says no, I'm not going to pray, I'm only going to prove to myself that I won't even remember a lie in my heart. That is also another extreme. So, by moderation what is meant is following the dean, as the dean is, as it is, neither exceeding it, nor abandoning it.
Then others have said that omoton was upon means wasup gives the meaning of best.
What does it mean? Best? So this oma is the best. How is it the best room
Compare this amount with the other homeless for example, the previous owner, the hood, what did they do? They kill their profits. Isn't it? Fair you can cut them off or you can talk to them. They went on to one extreme. What did the nesara do? What did the Masada do?
They began worshipping the prophet who was sent to them. So, that is another extreme.
So, we have made you an automaton was upon, we have made you adjust community, a balanced community, amid most community, you are given the best way the best commands, which are in your favor
and also been updated at the commands that have been given to us to this oma, what are they? What do they improve?
They improve the quality of life to improve, you know, education, ethics, morals, betterment of society, caring for others. So this is also how this oma is an old mother is wassup.
Then another opinion also exists which is that if you look at it, the profits are a lot of a sudden was the last profit isn't in the string of many profits in a stream of many messengers.
After his mission was completed, the Dean was completed and perfected as well.
And he passed under the into to his own. So now we are in the middle.
The oma of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is in the middle.
How was it in the middle?
The oma has the deen has the teachings has the knowledge. And what is this oma supposed to do?
It is supposed to pass it on to others. So Martin was often in the middle, meaning you are the connection. You are the middle link. You're supposed to tell people about Allah years ago supposed to tell people about the teachings that are Lost Planet Allah has given how to worship Allah, how to please Him, what's coming the Hereafter, you are the middle link.
So what does it show to us that it is our responsibility to spread this theme to others as well.
So Allah says, Waka danika geranyl Come on mutton worship on and thus we have made you adjust community
that just as the Carver is a means of guidance, because just as we have guided you, to the right Kibler, which is the Carver and Carver is a means of guidance as well.
The Carver is a means of guidance as well, the house of Allah is a means of guidance as well, how?
How is it a means of guidance?
If you just look at the cover, and you wonder, so many people, they've been facing this place since for many years, hundreds and hundreds. Sometimes, you know, if you go for a run, just stand on the upper floors, and you just look down at the cover you're like, if anybody sees this view, how can they deny Islam?
So many people? What are they doing? They're praying, they're worshiping.
So the karma itself is a means of guidance.
So just as a karma as a means of guidance, similarly, the Muslim Ummah has been made much worse up. Why, in order to guide mankind
in order to bring people to the way of Allah soprano.
We learned earlier in Milan is number 96. Allah says in the our innovating will be early Nancy lender db bacchetta. Mobile rockin wahoo then Delilah me
indeed the first house of worship, the first house of worship established for mankind was that atmaca
blessing and a guidance for the world meaning a guidance for all people.
Now we learned that beta mock this was the quibbler that the Muslims were previously following in Medina.
And that was a tribler off the people of the world. That was a fiddler off the hood of Medina. That's what they faced when they used to worship.
Now with that, that will trigger with the changing of the cable with the transferring of the Qibla from Jerusalem to Makkah, what happened?
What happened? What was being shown to the people that leadership was being
Taken away from the Bani Israel. And now, it was being given to who the oma of the prophets are
working rarely kodra nalco or mutton, what's happened? You are now responsible for conveying the deen of Allah to others.
There were some people before you, who were also given the same responsibility, but they feel that they didn't fulfill that responsibility. And because it didn't fulfill it, what happened? Allah took that privilege away from them. And he gave it to who to the mutton was.
And now it is your responsibility. Don't just take it as a privilege. Many times we say, Yes, we are the best. We are the right. But we forget that we are right, we are best. Why? Because we have been given a responsibility. We ignore the responsibility and we pride over the privilege.
Whereas both of them come hand in hand.
What was the mistake of the bunny is fine. They ignore the responsibility. And they took pride in the privilege, isn't it so? And as a result, what happened? that responsibility that leadership was taken away from them.
And this was shown this was demonstrated how, by the changing of the privilege
that the profits are about Islam, the Muslims, all of them would face you sue them along with the people of the book. And then eventually, the profits or losses and I was commanded. Don't face it anymore. Now, you face
now, you face that.
So radica gR nacwa omoton was upon.
Now why have we been made omoton was upon What's the reason?
Allah says Lita Kunal Shahada, alumnus, so that you all become witnesses over mankind over the people lithoco
lamb over here is our reason meeting the reason why we have made you are met and was upon is because you will become who does you all refer to Muslims? And the word Shahada is a plural of Shaheed are showerhead, meaning a witness. So you are witnesses, Arlen ness over the people, which people
which people which unece does this refer to?
all mankind, all people?
And what does it mean by the statement,
that you have been made? mutton was given so that you are a witness over the people? How are you a witness over the people?
That first of all, in this dunya you witness over the truth?
Do you have been given the truth and you give it to the people? You spread it to others?
And secondly, and more importantly, it is that you will be witnesses over the people when in the hereafter
that you will witness that all the messengers, what did they do? They conveyed the message to their nations.
And if the people did not follow that message, whose fault is it the messengers are the people it's the people
we learn from several ahaadeeth For example, one that is mentioned in Buhari, but the profits are of another set of said no earlier salon will be called on the Day of Resurrection. New Elisa Lam, he will be called on the Day of Judgment. And he will say La vache and Saturday, oh my lord,
he will say, Oh my Lord, I am here. So he will be called and he will respond immediately.
Allah subhanaw taala would say, Did you convey the message? No. And I said I would say yes. his nation will then be asked, Did he conveyed the message to you? And they will say, no one came to us.
What will the people say on the day of judgment? No one ever came to us. We have no idea about the message. No messenger came to us. We never knew about the Day of Judgment. We never knew that we were supposed to worship Allah subhanaw taala only. So in other words, the people on that day will completely deny
just as many people even in the dunya when they're caught, what do they do? They completely deny it. I didn't know. I didn't I wasn't supposed to whereas they did know. So similarly on the Day of Judgment, people will completely deny and they will say no messenger came to us. No one who came to us. The new la salon will be addressed. Allah subhanaw taala will say to him, who will bear witness in your favor.
Do you have any evidence? Can somebody come as a witness and testify to the fact that you did deliver the message to the people?
A new addition I will say, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and his followers, they will testify in my favorite that I did convey the message to my nation to my people. So what will happen? Then the Muslims will justify that he conveyed the message.
Now, the question is, how do we know that know, Allison conveyed the message to his people? How do we know,
through the Quran
through what the prophet sallallahu wasallam has told us.
It's over here Allah says nittaku Shahada animus, so that you become a witness against the people over the people.
And you see the word Allah over here, upon over.
Whenever this word is used with witness, it gives the meaning of witnessing against someone not in their favor, but against them.
So over here, we learned that the people will completely deny that any messenger came to them. What is the Muslim Omar gonna say?
They're going to testify, they're going to bear witness against the nation that know what you're saying is wrong. The messenger did come to you. And he did convey the message to you
where your corner was sooner, Aleikum shahida. And also that the messenger will be a witness over you. Which messenger Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam will be a witness, I lay comb again you see the word la con not la come against you. Who does you refer to? Muslims? So what is the Shahada that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would take what is a witness that he will bear on the day of judgment?
This has been understood in several ways. First of all, it has been said, according to Evan Arbus, that he will bear witness against you meaning against your actions.
Others have said that what this means is that he will bear witness against you that he conveyed the message to you
that he conveyed the truth to his home
at the time of hospital with a at the time of the hedge to the profits that allowed us to perform the last one, the farewell pilgrimage.
What are the profits out of all this? And I'm say to the people,
and I held the laughter. He said, Have I conveyed a message to you? And what did the people say? Kaduna? They said yes. So what did the Prophet sallallahu wasallam say,
of loving, Masha? Allah, their weakness. And he said that three times
Allahumma should have loving my shed.
So the prophets of Allah said, I will bear witness on the Day of Judgment, that he conveyed the message to us.
He conveyed the message to us. He taught us everything that he was instructed to teach us.
So if we do wrong, whose fault is it?
Is not the profit or loss.
Similarly, if we don't convey the message to others, whose fault is it,
ours, because the profits of others and him said ballyhoo I need what do I convey for me even if it is one idea,
those who are present here should inform those who are not present here. So our responsibility as a Muslim Ummah, is to benefit from the teachings that we have learned and also pass them on. And if we don't do so, what's going to happen? The profit sort of lesson and is going to be a witness against us on the Day of Judgment.
Allah says in the Quran in surah Missa is number 41. Four k for either jednom in Cali omet in vicia hidden widget nahi Carla hola shahida.
So how would it be when we bring from every nation of witness, when we bring from every nation, a witness meaning it's profit, and we will bring you a prophet sallallahu wasallam against these people, as a witness,
that indeed you conveyed the message to them.
Now, we learn that on the Day of Judgment, the profits out of a sudden will also bear witness in favor of some people
in favor of who
those people who follow this way.
He will bear witness against some others who are the
those who left his way.
For example, we learned in sorting for con, I number 30. Our cells were color was soon to be in a coma, the hadoo had an Anima Judah.
And the messenger will say on the Day of Judgment, that Oh my Lord, indeed my people have taken this on as a thing abandoned,
meaning they have abandoned the Quran.
So those who abandon the Quran, whether in recitation or in understanding, or in application,
what are they doing?
The prophets that have either someone who's going to be a witness against them on the Day of Judgment,
one ledger, and then people attend that he could die early. In early nanana, mania, a bit of a solar mania and caribou either activate
and we did not make the Qibla which you use to follow except that we might make evident who would follow the messenger from who would turn back on his heels.
So, what do we learn in this part of the ayah one manager on metal paper letter, and we did not make the Qibla
Gianna Gianna over here gives a meaningful command
that we did not command you. We did not instruct you to follow what to follow the Tabler? Which Tabler allottee container which you were upon meaning which we used to follow previously.
So before the prophets are allowed Islam was permitted to face the Kaaba, what was he facing? Jerusalem?
Now the question is, why did Allah subhanaw taala command the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the Muslims to face Jerusalem in the first place?
because initially in Makkah, the prophets are often face to carbon.
And then in Medina, he was told to follow Jerusalem deface Jerusalem.
And then later on, he was told to face the cover again.
So how come in the middle he was commanded to face Jerusalem?
Over here the reason has been given
well, manager unknown fibula can let decontaminate her for some time that you faced Jerusalem. Why did we give this instruction to you in there except Lena lemma, so that we know meaning so that Allah subhanaw taala would know
would know what
may have available so who would follow the messenger? We may include the word activate. And who is the one who turned back on his heels?
mania tourville. You have tobio ism newsletters that that I
means literally, to walk behind someone.
What does it mean, to walk behind someone to go after someone in their footsteps.
And the word etbr is used in both in the tangible sense as well as the intangible sense.
In the tangible sense, physical sense. For example, somebody walking in front of you and you're walking right behind them, somebody's driving in front of you before you and you're driving right behind them. So why are you driving right behind them because you're following them?
So, it is used in the tangible sense. And the word is also used in the intangible sense, what does that mean? To follow someone in their statements, in their words, in their actions?
So, for example, when we do divide up the profits out of our decision, what do we do? We follow him in both of our and acquire in statements and in actions.
For example, before eating, but do we see what the prophet said a lot of them said, after eating, what he said before entering the washroom, what he said, upon coming out of the washroom, what he said,
and also in actions for example, we pray as the prophets are about
So, this is what it is.
So who is the person who follows Allah soon the messenger.
Notice it is unless soon the messenger messenger has been mentioned, Mohammed, his name sort of awkwardness and it has not been mentioned why
For several reasons.
First of all, oh Rasul. The messenger refers to the final messenger, meaning his last messenger. There is no messenger who's coming after him.
Also, it shows to us that he is indeed the messenger,
meaning he's not making these decisions out of his own way. He is indeed a messenger who is true, because his name could also have been mentioned. But that's not mentioned his title is mentioned. Why do affirm his truthfulness?
And also to encourage us to follow him because may yet be over soon? What does it show to us
that we should follow the messenger?
That is a criteria. That is what is required of us, made yet available so men from women is a combination of men and women,
men and women don't confuse between the two
men is from and mine is who
young Carnival is from the newsletters off lamba the word calm is from the same newsletters Congress heart, right. And in Canada, yen caribou in PR is to turn to turn around.
So who turns around? who turns around on what Allah rpv upon his to use? rpba? Is the dual of the word octave? How will you write it?
off, but that's Rp.
an octave is some letters I'm caught that octave is used for the heel of the foot, what is the heel of the foot,
and otherwise awkward gives the meaning of the end part of something, the back of something the wear of something?
So this expression, my young colleagues, are there rpba? The one who turns on his heels? When you turn on your heels? What are you doing? What are you doing? You completely turn around? Isn't it
you're facing one direction. And when you turn on your yield, you face the exact opposite direction.
And this is an expression that is used for someone who completely turns away from something,
someone who completely turns away from something.
And it shows extreme dislike on the part of someone for that which he was facing formerly,
for that which he was doing before.
So over here we see two people have been mentioned, who are they? First of all, one who follows the messenger?
And secondly, who has been mentioned one who turns back on his heels?
What does that mean by turning back on one seals?
It means refusing to follow the messenger.
The one who refuses to follow the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and reverts to unbelief reverts to
after being a believer.
So over here, the reason why Allah subhanaw taala commanded the Prophet sort of on the center, to face Jerusalem for some time. And then he changed the Qibla from Jerusalem to Makkah, why was the privilege changed? Why was it changed?
Because over here a lot Elvis, so that he would know who is the person who continues to follow the messenger, and who is the person who leaves Islam, and goes back to coefficient.
So in other words, this was a test,
a test that would expose that would reveal the sincerity of the faith of the people.
And these tests are very important.
Sometimes these tests come through, I can assure you,
sometimes these tests come through the commands that are in the Sharia.
So for example, either by commands or prohibitions,
and at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, abrogation of the command,
and what do these commands do? What do these situations do?
They show the true worth of the mind of the person. how sincere is he?
If he believes in the profits are uncertain, if he believes in a lot, and he will do whatever that he's commanded,
and if he's doubtful, then what is he gonna do? He's going to leave it
So Allah subhanaw taala depths people so that their true worth is exposed.
Other Melissa was tested by the tree,
Bani Israel were tested through many things. One of them was the crown.
Ibrahim Alyssa was also tested through kalama. And the Muslims, the Muslim woman, it was tested through what through the change of the
the Muslim oma was tested how, through the change of
first of all the Muslim or met the Muslims, they were told to leave
and come to Medina. That in itself was very difficult for some, that in itself was a big test.
And then upon coming to Medina, they were told to face Jerusalem and not Makkah, that was even harder.
That was much harder for them. They love maka, they used to worship over there. And now all of a sudden, when they come to Medina there at all, you're not facing carbon anymore. You're not facing Mark anymore. You're facing Jerusalem. That was even more hard.
And then eventually they were told, okay, now face the cargo again.
So this process, what did it do? It clarified who was really a sincere believer, and who was not a sincere believer.
So we see that the commands that Allah soprano data gives us the laws that he gives us, the prohibitions that he gives us, through them, what is he doing? He's testing us.
He's testing our Eman.
one thing I want you to notice over here is that Allah says La Nina Elena.
So that we know
so that we know.
And we learned earlier in the first ayah, from SEO guru, soon he will say that Allah subhanaw taala, his knowledge is complete, right? He knows about the past, he knows about the present. And he knows about the future as well, isn't it? Allah is the one who has complete knowledge.
Now over here less has a lovely narrow number of so that we come to know
doesn't allow it No.
Of course he does. So what is meant by so that we come to know
this is understood as that so that we make known we shall
we make known
to the people that the Prophet said along
to the other believers.
Remember that Allah subhanaw, taala knows everything.
But he causes events to occur, different situations to occur, why? to show us the reality?
Just as for example, if you have a glass of water, and some food coloring,
you know, that if you put that food color in the washing, what's going to happen
to water is going to change color, isn't it? You know that from before?
But if you're trying to explain that concept to a child, what are you going to do? You're just going to tell them, see this food color? If I put it in water, it's going to turn blue or orange or pink, whatever, are just going to say that no, what are you going to do? You're going to show it, you're going to demonstrate it why started becomes completely clear to that child. Similarly, Allah soprano data shows to the people
and at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he showed to the prophets of Allah sudden, who is really a true believer, and who is not a true believer,
who is really sincere in his faith and who is suffering from doubt
in early marlana, mania, tavira versona riemannian kalibo.
This is one reason that has been given
others see that linaro Lemma. So that we come to know what it means is, so that we distinguish,
so that we distinguish between sincere and insincere,
because Allah already knows, but by this happening, what happened that sincere and the insincere, were completely distinguished.
Others say a third opinion is that linaro Lemma so that we come to know meaning so that we can establish the recompense
we can establish the reward or punishment. Because remember that a loss of power that is knowledge is complete. But He rewards and vanishes only after a person does something.
His knowledge is complete. He knows exactly what we're going to do.
But only when we do it then
He gives a reward, or he gives a punishment.
So linaro Lemma so that we come to know, never misunderstand this, everything that Allah didn't know before. And now he will come to know No, it means he already knows he's showing it to us. Or he knows he's only distinguishing between the good and the bad, between the sincere and the insincere. Or we can understand this as he knows already, but he's making people do this or he will wait for people to do this Why? So that just recommends can be established,
because he will not punish or reward someone unless and until they actually do something.
So in early nanometre, he oversaw me my incredible honor activate
when done it, and surely it was what was this incident of the changing of the Qibla. from Jerusalem, to garba, or from garba to Jerusalem to cover this entire incident? It was luck ability, surely a big thing. It was surely very tremendous. It was very troublesome. It was very heavy. The word Kabira is from the roosters calf Bella. And the word Kabira is a feminine of cubby. COVID is used for that which is big, that which is great. It's used for something that is great in its size, it could be great in its age, in status, in quantity, in seriousness, in the difficulty that it brings, etc. So over here calbayog gives the meaning of that it was very troublesome, it was very difficult.
It was a very difficult matter, a very difficult state, in law and the Medina had about except for those people who Allah has guided,
just as we read earlier, that salette is indeed very great, except for those who are harsh. Right? We're in the head, the kurata Lf, arlon horseshoeing. Except for those were, for sure.
So, similarly, over here, this entire issue was very difficult and troublesome, except for those whom Allah has guided.
Now, what does it mean by those whom Allah has guided, remember, he die is of two types, who they are
and who they have to feel.
So over here, what does he mean by he died,
he died over here has been understood in both ways, except for those people, whom Allah has given into, and for those people whom Allah has given tofield to why, because those who have in
those are to think what happens to them, they submit to the commands of Allah, they accept the commands of Allah, and a person who does not accept the commands of Allah, what happens to him,
the command of Allah becomes very difficult for him.
Once you accept something, it becomes easy.
And when you don't accept something, it becomes very difficult.
There are some situations in our lives,
about which we cannot do anything.
We cannot change the situations at all. It's not in our hands. If we accept those situations, what are we going to do? We're going to make things easy for us, isn't it? And if we don't accept them, if we say no, why, why not this? Why not that what's gonna happen? What's gonna happen? We're making life more difficult for ourselves.
So we're in the Hannah Kabila in there and Alina had a lot
except for those people who Allah has given her an alternative.
So we learned from this, that the commands that Allah gives,
they are difficult for some people.
The commands that Allah gives the prohibitions that Allah has said, they are difficult for some people, but they are not difficult for those who Allah has guided.
Because when a person learns knowledge, when a person gains in,
what happens he develops the fear of Allah.
As Allah tells us in the nyesha, Mohammed everybody or Nima is a knowledgeable ones who fear Allah.
So when a person gains in, what happens he increases his fear of Allah. And when a person fears Allah, then he doesn't dislike of Australia, then he doesn't dislike ullas comments, nor are they difficult for him anymore. But it starts from what
It starts from gaining knowledge.
Instead of delay, I have five to seven. Allah subhanaw taala tells us for unlimited alpha dukkha was at the cabin hustla Fasten your seat Oh, who then you saw
as for the one who believed, and developed a quote, and he confirmed that which was true, that which is the best, then we're going to make the easy easy for him. Meaning we're going to make following the right path, easy for him.
So what do we learn that when a person gains knowledge, then what happens? He increases the fear of Allah, which helps him submit to the command of Allah, which helps him accept the commendable
if you look at it, the commands are the same. Some people, they do them so easily, isn't it and other people that have done with so much difficulty? It's the same Salah some people are praying all eight therapy, isn't it? And they're enjoying and other people there waiting for the man to finish so that they can go home?
What's the difference?
What's the difference?
One person is giving further, happily, another person is giving sort of grudgingly with here.
One person is doing the code of Allah. Happily, another person is forcing himself to do the
one person is reciting the Quran. And he's enjoying and other person is reciting the Quran and he's yawning.
And he's waiting for that particular class to end. What's the difference?
The difference is in the man.
The difference is because of the fear of Allah,
one person fears of Allah. And because he fears of law, therefore it is easy for him to do it.
The other person does not have fear of Allah, and therefore the same command, the same prohibition becomes very difficult for him.
So over here, we learn that the commands are difficult, but they're not difficult for those who are less guided.
And how does a person gain Hidayat? What's the first step? gaining knowledge? So when a person gains knowledge, what happens? What happens following the commands becomes easier?
For example, with all of us over here, performing the Salah, praying the solder,
it might have been something very difficult for us before, isn't it?
But when we learned about
the people who have dukla, who are the Latina up Muna salad.
That's like the first quality.
Then what happens that motivates you to improve yourself, isn't it that motivates you? To perform your Southern regularity? You tell yourself No, I have to pray consistently, I have to pray regularly. Because if I don't, I will not have the quote. And if I don't, I will not gain guidance from
so when a person learns knowledge, then following the commands becomes easier.
Following the commands of Allah becomes easier.
So we learned that in this situation as well, implementing that this command of the change of the crippler was difficult except for those people who are blockaded
because they said it's the command of Allah and if it's the command of Allah, there is no problem I accept it as it is.
Then it was apparent it says one can Allahu Allahu Allah was not legal they are even
that he would waste your belief that you would waste your email.
Lilia leovera lamb over here gives a meaning of so that and you there is some little treasures But yeah, I bought Yeah, I by Leah, which means to waste something or to let something perish to let something you know get ruined and destroyed.
It is when a person does not pay attention to something does not use something property and as a result, what happens? nothing is wasted.
For example, the food is just sitting in your refrigerator. You don't cook it. You don't eat it. You don't give it away, eventually what's gonna happen?
What's gonna happen? It's gonna end up in the garbage. It's gonna be wasted. Right? So Allah was not going to waste your email.
What isn't by wasting your email over here by not rewarding it by not giving you rewards.
but on the contrary, Allah is definitely going to give reward for your email.
Now, what does it mean by email over here?
Email over here refers to finance. It refers to prayers,
which sonet, which pairs,
those that the Muslims performed while facing Jerusalem while facing the beta blockers.
So, those followers, which the people create, facing the beta blockers, they were not going to be wasted. They were definitely going to be rewarded.
And what happened was that before the change to cover from Jerusalem to cover,
when the Muslims were still praying in the direction of the waiting Loftus, so in those 16 to 17 months, there were some people who passed away.
It was a duration of 16 to 17 months. So there were some Muslims, who passed away while they were still facing the beta blockers, and they never really got the chance to face the karma and then pray.
So and the people, they began to wonder, Is this going to be accepted? Because they weren't really facing the right Qibla? That's what they thought. So they were wondering, Is this what I really going to be accepted? Or what about our salad that we prayed facing Jerusalem?
Is that going to be accepted? Do we have to repeat that entire summer?
For those 16 to 17 months? So people began to wonder like that.
Because the following guys that inshallah we will read, they tell us about the importance of facing the Qibla no matter where we are, we have to face the Qibla in Salah.
So because of that instruction, they began to wonder what about our soldiers that we pray face in Jerusalem? Are they going to be accepted?
What about those people who died? What about their Sunnah?
So Allah tells us over here, that Allah is not going to waste that Salah Why? Because that was performed facing Jerusalem, at his command, at the command of Allah.
So when you were doing that, you were obeying the law, and because you were obeying the law, your deed is not going to be wasted.
Now the question is, the man over here refers to what does it refer to Santa? How come solar has been called email?
Why is he man used over here? Why not simply solder? Why is the man used over here?
several reasons have been given.
First of all, some have said that's fine now includes statements that includes particular words.
It includes the knee of the heart, and it also includes certain Arma certain actions by the names.
And if you remember the definition of Eman, what is that?
Even in the heart? That is a firm that is declared by the tongue and it is also proven by a person's actions.
So sonet has been called Eman. Why? Because Salah has all of these three things. Heart, dung, and limbs. All of them are involved in performing the center.
That's why sauna has become
so one opinion is others have said that Salah is an action isn't.
So there is an animal
and an animal proves an action proves what is actually in the heart of a person.
If there is no Armen, what does that show?
What does that show
that there is no emotion in the heart.
And if there is ama What does that show? There is a man in the heart.
So Salah has been called a man Why? Because it demonstrates it proves what is actually in the heart of the person.
So when you prayed facing Jerusalem with faith with a man that's when it's not going to be wasted. Why? Because that's what approved what your Eman in the heart.
There's a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that is mentioned evident
in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and Emmanuel Boren was said there
have been new hair. odor that either in the law, what are the
email patola of me and you
will hire hyoe shirt with a minute email.
The man has over 70 branches.
Eman has over 70
branches Eman is not just to say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah. That is not just what a man is a man has over 70 branches,
most excellent of which is the declaration that either in the law. So saying that in a in the law is a part of Eman. And the humblest of which is the removal of a bone from the road.
When a person removes a bone, or a tree branch, or a huge rock, or something that could hurt the people from a pathway, why is he doing that?
to help the people to be the last panel data. When a person does that, that is also a part of the man.
event is not just about rituals. Remember that
it's not just about rituals. Because removing a bone from the road is not a ritual. It's a good deed that a person does. And that is also part of email.
And the prophets are of awesome continued. And modesty is a branch of Eman.
If you look at this Hadith, what is the first branch saying like?
What is that speech? Right? What's the second thing that's mentioned?
removing a bone from a pathway? What is that? That's an action of the limbs.
Then thirdly, modesty. modesty is what it's in the heart
so Eman includes what
actions of the tongue, actions of the limbs and also actions of the heart.
imaginary is not something that is conceptual. Remember, it's not something that is just abstract, no, it is visible through what a person does. It is manifested through a person's actions.
So the word Eman over here has been used instead of cyber. Why? So that people realize the importance of solder.
If a person does not perform solder, what does that show?
his email is deficient. There is something wrong with his email.
And if a person performs the solder, what does that show? his email is good. It's healthy. So now is what distinguishes between a believer and a non believer. Salah is what distinguishes between a believer and a non believer.
And the first thing that we will be questioned on the Day of Judgment is about what
so over here, Salah has been called Eman because of the immense importance of solder. One McCann Allahu deel Dr. niccole
What do we learn from this statement? Allah is not going to waste your faith isn't going to waste your good deeds that Allah does not waste the reward of anyone who will be is Allah
in the law have been nasty little Ufa Rahim Indeed Allah with the people is surely most kind and also merciful.
The name of allah soprano Dada oof is from the roof letters, but ah hum said
it is from the root letters, la Hamza
and what is used for kindness, affection,
it is said that Rockford is a shed.
It is intense, merci.
Rama is Mercy
is more than mercy.
It is that that
is the tenderness of one's heart. fatherly affection.
It is said that what it is to be kind to someone
to be affectionate toward someone. Why in order to remove some affliction, or pain from them that they're suffering from.
For example, you see someone who's suffering. You see someone who has a headache. You see someone who's carrying a heavy bag. What do you do?
What do you do? It's their problem. They're suffering from a headache. It's their bag. What can I do? Is that know what
you offer to help out?
So refer is to be filled with the feelings of compassion upon seeing someone in a difficult situation.
And it's not just having a lot of kindness and compassion in your heart for them. Because many times when we hear about people suffering, for example, people in Pakistan right now, what do we say? We feel so bad for them.
What phase not
To feel bad. It's not just to be filled with feelings of affection, but it is to do something in order to remove that suffering from
it is to do something in order to remove the suffering from them to remove the affliction from them, this is what our face.
So Allah, Islam all meaning he's very gentle. He's very affectionate. He's very kind. When he sees people suffering from something, he removes that suffering from them. He removes that difficulty from them.
And he is also Rahim Beatty, he's also very merciful.
So we learned over here that Allah subhanaw taala gave the command of changing the Qibla from Jerusalem to Makkah, not to waste the salado people, but in order to give a specific direction to the Muslim ummah.
What do we learn from this ayah that Allah subhanaw taala change the Fiddler from Jerusalem to Makkah, why not to waste the amount of the people not to waste the good deeds of the people, but in order to give a specific direction to the Muslim ummah.
Another very important reason as to why he changed the crippler was to test the people. Who is the one who is the messenger? who follows the messenger? And who is the one who turns back?
Who is the one who leaves the way of the profits out of it.
And the question is that the Qibla was fixed. Why was it changed? Was it really important? Could the Muslims not even talk on the first day, just continue to face the karma? Why change to Jerusalem and then back to cover? Why?
To test the believers right to know, their true worth. And also we see that the oma was often the Muslim Ummah, is a means of guidance. That's one of the means that we learned about from within voiceover.
So from this ayah, we also see that we have to recognize our role, then we have to spread the message of Islam.
Then Allah says, I'm not the calabogie customer. In fact, we used to see or certainly we have seen the turning of your face or profits or along the southern towards the heaven, toward the sky.
The word God gives the meaning of certainty.
It gives the meaning of this is a fact
that this is a fact this really happened.
And either over here is coming before Nara and now is from the root letters or ah Hamza.
bruja, which means to see, narrow we see, so quite narrow. In fact, we used to see,
remember that the Word NARA it's a verb that gives a meaning of present or future tense. And let me just make it easy for you and for myself. Okay? The verb of present future tenses called fairly mobile, they're
That's a term that is used for the verb, which indicates the action being done in the present tense, or the action that will be done in the future tense. Just as a verb, Yoku Yala moon Yama loon Yara yaku Jaco Luna tuxedomoon. Okay. So these verbs What are they called? feral, Matata? And the verb that gives the meaning of past tense? What is that feral called? feral monkey?
Can you remember these two terms? pretty fair, mildly and fairly well?
How do you recognize them? inshallah, we'll do that later on. But right now just become familiar with these terms.
So not all is fair, nobody. Now we don't have nearly the whole story. in reverse to a verb of presidents or the future tense, I can just say my daughter and you would know the meaning. Right, inshallah.
when God comes before a failed modality, it gives the meaning of the repetition of the verb.
It gives the meaning of the repetition of the action that follows. So another, meaning we used to see repeatedly, again and again, over and over again.
What did we see again and again,
the con Luba jika, the repeated turning of your face. The unknown is from the fetters of lambda calculus.
from the same root letters as well, young caribou. Also, the unlock is to turn again and again to fluctuate to DOS, enter.
So, your face Where did he get your face? You over here first the profits are along the center.
So we would see your face fluctuating, turning again and again
this summer in the sky. What does it mean by the Alibaba Chica for summer, the turning of your face the repeated turning of your face towards the sky.
This is understood in two ways that first of all the profits are an artisan would look up again and again. Every now and then he would look up again and again up towards the sky. Secondly, it has been said that what this means is that he will look up at the sky and you look to the right you look to the left you look to the right to the left.
So he would look for calavia first to journeying from right to left left to right.
And according to the first meaning, looking up at the sky and looking back down and again looking up at the sky and looking down.
Why did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam look up to the sky?
Because he knew that he was alas messenger.
And he was going to be eventually told to face Aqaba in prayer.
And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam also loved maca. He loved the garden.
And he wished he longed to face the Kaaba in prayer.
So because he knew that he was going to be given this command, he would look up to the sky. And he would look right and left waiting for who waiting for God
to descend with the command to face.
So he would look up out of hope, out of anxiousness out of anticipation for the hook
for the hook them to be given to him.
What does Allah say? Are the not all we used to see repeatedly? Meaning every time that you looked up to the sky, every time you turn right, every time you turn left, waiting for the command each time you hoped
we knew we saw you. But we saw you every time we noticed you every time.
See the love of Allah subhanaw taala for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
each time we looked up, we saw you each time we look right, we saw each time you look left, we saw you called the narrow the consumer virginica summer.
So we see over here that the profits are a lot of seller. He knew that he was going to be given the command and he waited for the command. He didn't just, you know, say yeah, eventually we have to be given the command. So I might as well just specify,
although the command has not yet come, but eventually it's going to be given. So that's the space the carbon
he didn't make the decision himself, he still waited for the command from Allah.
And this shows to us, that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did not make up any commandment, his own will,
everything he taught us everything he instructed us with was from who from a loss of
Allah tells us and sort of the najem I had three What am I empty corniel Hawa
the profits are a lot of a sudden he does not speak from his own desire from his own inclination, he only follows what they were he that is given to him
also we see over here, but the profits are not listening we look up to the sky.
So it is permissible. It is allowed for a person to look at the sky. Why in order to reflect or when we can do our when hoping for something when wishing for something out of love of Allah. But remember that during Sunnah, when we're praying the Salah, then we're not allowed to look up
during the Salah. We're not allowed to look up to the sky. Because it is disrespectful.
During sada we have to have horseshoe and who short means to bend the body. And if you raise up your head and you're looking up to the sky or you bend in your body, you're not
so sure, which is a part of sonet means that we should bend our body and insula, where should we look
at the place where we do center.
And at most a person can look at the email to see where the email is. For example, if you went down to see Judo he got it from this one following email
But during summer we're only allowed to look at what
at the place of such they're not up in the sky.
Similarly, we shouldn't be looking here and there in Santa we shouldn't be following the pattern that is on the masala we should be focusing on the San
Fernando Valley and NACA Kibera center
and we will surely turn you to a Qibla with which you will be pleased
find a new one Leanna
looks like a very big word for means. So, la means surely no means we noelia we will turn when there is something better as well um yeah, we have done various forms from this route letters. So find a new one Leah, noon Masha that the end gives a meaning of definitely and can means you.
So, surely, we will definitely turn you towards what towards the Qibla towards a prayer direction, who you will be happy with it. Who does you refer to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam?
The above from the rotators are about Yeah, probably to be happy to be satisfied with something. So we will tell you very soon to face the privilege that you like to face the Qibla that you love to fix. And the command came right after this. And what was the command? For one Li word you had a Chaparral Masjid in home.
This is the actual command which was given to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to face the Carbonell insula and not Jerusalem anymore.
For one leap, so Uturn, notice the word when the there's a singular. If it was one Lu, then it would be
one Li, singular. This command is true to the profit sort of other setup, and what are the factors? Well, nambia.
So turn, what do you look at your face? Now it doesn't mean just turn your face? What it means your entire body? Okay? Doesn't mean your body should be facing another direction and you face the other way? No, it's and I was supposed to stand straight. Okay, so the direction that our face is turned towards is the direction that our entire body is also facing. So for one language that Sharon Schaeffler is a meditator, she thought
she thought bra and shutter is used for direction,
in the direction of
and shutter is also used for facing something from fine.
What does it mean, to face something from fine?
that when you're facing the Qibla, it is not possible to follow or to face the exact direction of the problem.
It's not possible, isn't it?
You know how? in geometry, the slight difference of an angle? Even if it's one degree, five degrees, what happens? What happens? Where do you end up
at a completely different point?
Isn't it so
even if it is a difference of one angle, where you're going to end up at a completely different point. For example, if you're at a 45 degree angle, and you're going this way, you're going to end up here, right? And if you're at a 50 degree angle, only slightly different, were you going to end up at a completely different point. And there's a big gap between the two
sharp gives the meaning of whoosah it gives meaning of capacity. It means in the direction of two words.
Not the exact point but in the direction of towards
because sometimes people wonder it's not possible that you face Aqaba. Exactly.
It's not possible. So then that means recognize wrong every time. No, it's not wrong. Because what we have been commanded is that we should face Shapira who, towards its shuttling towards its direction and shutter has the meaning of wisdom.
So what should we face and so now what was the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told for Wendy Raja Chopra and the masjid al haram the sacred Masjid.
Now the word must have this wondering fetters cng that must It is a place that is specified for such things that is specified for Sunnah.
And if you have the word must jet with a photo on the gym, then must jet is any place where a person does such thing, but must gid is a place that is designated for doing such.
So, which must suit should you face? the masjid that is and how long?
And how long does not mean forbidden over here? It does not mean forbidden over here the forbidden mustard no way not at all.
How long isn't the fetters How are Me
and masjidul Han? Why is it called my student head on for two reasons. First of all, because it is moharram
it is wrong, it is more it is more fun meaning it has to be respected, it has to be respected.
Secondly, it has been said that it is called heroin Why? Because certain things that are lawful otherwise are not permissible over there, isn't it
certain things that are lawful otherwise are not permissible over there. For example, cutting trees is not permissible in the head on
and outside. Otherwise it is permissible to do so.
So for one language, you have to shovel Machine Head on face insula in the direction of what in the direction of the secret machine?
Well, hazlemere Quantum, for luigia comm shutaura. And wherever you are believers, then turn your face towards it in prayer.
Now notice over here, hi. So my quantum for a new one new is floral, isn't it? And in the beginning, it was one leaf which is singular. So firstly, the command was given to the profit sort of under seven.
Now what Haytham icon term, all of you for one Lu than all of you turn, would you have gone all of your faces. This command is to who to all of the believers.
So first of all the prophets are about us and I was instructed, then all of the believers were instructed.
Now the word hazlemere. Hazel gives a meaning of where, in the place where and when it's followed by man, it means wheresoever in whatever place.
So what does it mean?
Wherever you are, whether at home, or you're traveling.
No matter where you are in the wall, anywhere you are, what are you supposed to do when you pray.
But when new would you have come shadow, and the word would you is a plural of which.
So we learn from this part of the ayah that it is mandatory for a person to face the Qibla. in prayer,
it is mandatory upon a person to face stapler when performing the saga.
But there are some exceptions. And one of those exceptions.
For example, a person does not have the means to determine the figure
person does not have the means to determine the figure.
I told you earlier in the explanation of ID number 115 have to look
for a number to a loofah tomato law. But once a group of the convenience they were traveling, and when the night fell, it was completely dark. And they were unable to figure out which direction was the clip.
So the people they prayed according to the best that they could judge. And later on, they figured out that it was the incorrect Qibla. So what did the Prophet said about Islam tell them this I was revealed for a number to a loop with Mr. Chola.
So if a person is in a situation where he does not have the means, do figure out what the problem is, then it is permissible for him to pray in whichever direction that he finds best.
Similarly, a person could be for example, he's traveling by plane
and it's a 14 hour journey. It's an 18 hour journey. What happens? Can he professional people, no he cannot. Although he knows in which direction the Qibla is, by the map that is displayed he can figure out which direction the traveler is. But he does not have the means to pray in that direction. Particularly. For example, if a person is traveling from the east towards the west, then the plane is traveling in the exact opposite direction, isn't it and you will not find any seats that are facing backwards. So how will you pray you will not print of course you will print you have to
Physically blubbering that situation, you're not able to face the Qibla. So in such a situation, it is permissible to face whichever direction a person is facing.
Similarly, a person is extremely sick, he's extremely ill, he's bedridden, he's at the hospital, and the bed faces a particular direction. And all the machinery is tied to the bed. And there is no way that the person could be moved, or the bed could be moved. Now, what is he going to do?
He has to pray. Although he's not facing the Qibla, he has to pray.
So we learned that for fault center, it is mandatory for a person to face the Qibla in prayer.
But for the Nuffield Center, the same restrictions do not apply. Because the prophets are allowed. So he would pray voluntary prayer on his animals, as he would be joining as he will be traveling and sometimes, you know, that particular animal would face away from the Qibla and the profits or the loss and would continue to pray. So for now, for Salah, it is not mandatory. But for fatahna, it is absolutely necessary. Unless a person does not have the means or he's completely incapable of facing.
He doesn't have any choice whatsoever.
But remember, that when you have the ability, then you have to face the problem.
You can't say, oh, since I'm in the wall, and I'm praying the change room. I can't really figure out from inside the wall, which was a good luck. No, the wall is not an excuse. Shopping is not an excuse. Prayer comes first. You can't just figure out you know, estimate the Qibla and just say okay, you know, this is where it would be you have to face the privilege.
Similarly, a person is traveling by car, he can stop the car and he can pray face.
So, the emphasis in this verse teaches us that we have to face the color when performing the fatahna.
And we learned that the Sahaba as soon as they learned about this command, they immediately change the color they immediately faced the carbon in the sun.
We learn from our howdy citizen mentioned Bihari Allah's Messenger sallallahu Sallam prayed facing return markers for 16 or 17 months. But he loved to face the Kaaba. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed, verily we have seen the turning of your face to the heaven. So the Prophet face the Kaaba, and the folds amongst the people, namely the hood. They said, what has turned them away from their Qibla which they formerly observed, a loss of hands on revealed, say to Allah belongs the east and the west. He guides to me well to illustrate that.
A man prayed with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam facing the Kaaba, after the circum. What happened? A person he prayed behind the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when facing the Kaaba. And he went out, he saw some of the unsolved praying the prayer with their faces towards beta democritus. And he said, I bear witness that I prayed with a loss messenger facing the Kaaba. What did the people do?
All of them, they turn their faces towards the Kaaba in their center.
So what does that show to us that sometimes we go to a particular place, and we don't know which way the clip lies or we judge the clip that'll be a particular when we're praying in that direction. And somebody else walks into the say, while we're praying that know what you're facing is wrong, please turn towards your right or please turn around, but should we do?
We should turn around right at that time.
Similarly, there is another Hadith which is mentioned in Muslim, in which it is stated that a person from Bhanu Salama was going, and he found the people in record while praying the dawn prayer. And they had said one record already. He said in a loud voice. Listen, the Qibla has been changed. And they turned towards the new Cleveland, which is the garbage in that very state. They didn't wait to come up from record, they just changed. Right there. And then. So a lesson that we learned from this is that if by mistake, we're facing the wrong privilege, and we learn during our center, then what should we do about the right fit rather than we should face the right fibula, the people they
implemented the command right away, and we should also do the same.
Now sometimes it might happen, that you go somewhere, and you estimate the Kremlin Ukraine, and you find out later on, that the production was incorrect. What are you going to do?
You find out much later, for example, you prayed to the wholesaler. And at the time you find out that the filler was wrong. What are you going to do? You're going to repeat your load? No, you're not going to repeat. Because we learned from that Hadees that they had already performed one Raka. Right. So they didn't just break their Salah over there. And they didn't start the setup over again.
They didn't start the setup over again. So when you do this, by mistake out of ignorance, then what happens? Later on when you find out you don't have to repeat the center.
But when somebody comes and tells you during your salad, what are you supposed to do? Change right away?
Then Allah subhanaw taala says, we're in the Medina author kita. And indeed those people who are given the book lay on the moon.
Surely they know that indeed, it is the truth from the Lord.
Who are the people who are given the book?
They want because they're the ones who were in Medina. Otherwise, it also refers to the Messiah, the Christians. So they know that indeed, it is a truth from their Lord. What is the truth from their Lord, facing the Kaaba in prayer garba being the crippler it is the truth from the Lord.
Now, how did they know that it's the truth?
Because it is said that in their scripture, this command was given, this instruction was given. Similarly, it has been said that they knew that the equivalent Ibrahim or his Sam and all of the profits was machines.
And our beta mock this because remember, beta mouthless was built much later.
And machinery around the Kaaba was built by the angels by atomization, by ebrahimian, etc. humanism. And beta mythos was built much later afterwards by sort of mannerism,
about 1400 or 1300 years after Abraham Madison.
So obviously, what was the right crippler the carbon so they knew that facing the karma is indeed the right tribler.
Also, they knew from the scripture that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had particular descriptions, and when they saw the Prophet sallallahu, Sunday recognized him, and obviously he's a messenger of Allah, whatever he would tell them is going to be the truth and not bounce.
So the People of the Book know that facing the karma as a black is indeed the right thing to do.
But what are they doing?
say a foreigner sofa. Allah says when Allah will be offered in unnamable. Allah is not unaware of what they do. Have I think is from newsletters, wine fair
hoffler and roughly his negligence, do not care about something.
Do not pay heed to something so negligent of their actions. What are their actions referring to overhear their activities of concealing the truth of objective

Ultimately, at the end of the
I was unaware of our actions, he knows which flow we're facing, when we really make an effort to determine the crippler. And when we take this issue very likely, Allah knows, for those are unaware,
whether in a data ladina, auto, whatever we call the IoT. And if you're brought to those who are given the Scripture, every sign was when are in a data that in his abomination of law, and in law gives meaning of shortly, in gives a meaning of life. So if a data a data from Hamza Teja, if you can, who does you refer to the prophet SAW the Lotus and because it's singular?
So if your profits are a virus and then give to who do those people who have been given the Scripture mean, they are who then then assata bicone, I add in every ayah
I overhear means every sign, every evidence, every proof, that indeed this stapler, facing the Kaaba, in prayer is a command from Allah.
If you gave them every kind of justification, every kind of evidence, if you say to them, what did the people face before vatan, Loftus was constructed no matter what evidence you give to them, are they going to listen, they're not going to listen, matter be livedata, they're not going to follow your paper. Why? Because of their stubbornness, because of their bias, because of their bias.
They love Jerusalem. And they loved to face Jerusalem only.
And because of that bias, even if the truth came to them, they weren't going to give up their love.
Now the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he desired guidance for everybody. He wanted that the the People of the Book, they will tell her except the commands of Allah. And if they wouldn't accept, at least they wouldn't object.
So over here, the prophets are of artisans being given reassurance, that it's not your fault, you have done your duty, you have conveyed the message to them, the problem is with them. No matter what proofs you give to them, they're not going to listen, they're not going to accept
wama and WW included at home. And you're not one who follows their curricula, that there is one who follows and notice that they're over here
it is that it is extra, giving the meaning of at all in the least,
you're not at all going to follow their Qibla This is a command that is being given to the Prophet sort of understanding that you must not follow their predilections either.
They're not going to follow yours and you will not compromise on yours. There are some principles and you have to abide by them.
You cannot compromise at all.
One out of home and are some of them, some of them. Some of the People of the Book bit are very one who follows Give me that about the table of others. What does it mean? That the People of the Book also do not face the same Qibla at all.
The people of the book also they do not face the same Qibla they do not follow each other Scribbler, despite having the same publicity despite having the same scriptures.
We learned that the Masada, the Christians, they would face the eastern side of the democritus they would face the eastern side of the beta mcklusky.
Why the eastern side mccannon sharqiya because that is where the shine incident was born.
So that is what they would face in their play.
And as for the hood, as for the Jews, what do they do? They face the western side. They face the body towards Sahara, supposedly pain where many messengers spread.
So the yahood would follow suffer the western side and the Christians. They would face the eastern side. So Allah says they themselves are not united.
They themselves are not united. It's the same place. What one group is facing the east, another group is facing the West. Why should you give up the truth in order to please these people
And if you do give it the truth to please these people, who are you going to please those who face the west for those who face the East? Who are you going to please? You can't please them.
So, what should a person do? He shouldn't worry about pleasing people, they should worry about pleasing Allah subhanaw taala
whether you need to barter insurance, if you followed
meaning or profits or loss, if you find out what their desires most desires, the desires of the people of the book and the word what is enough, however, what does however mean? desire. So, if you follow their desires, which desires
which desires what are their desires, referring to over here,
they're calling you towards their Qibla if you follow their desires, mimbar the after man that jakka it came to you, after what came to him and enter him after knowledge,
if you follow their desires, and if you follow their Qibla after knowledge has gone T which knowledge where he the command of Allah,
the knowledge about the Kaaba being the Qibla
in Mecca indeed you meaning if you follow these people after knowledge has come to you, then what? Indeed you even then meaning as a result, lemming of early mean, surely will be among those who do form
you will be doing injustice,
what is the injustice that you will abandon knowledge, you will be abandoning him over here.
Now, this ayah doesn't mean that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was going to follow them. But over here, this has been stated in order to show to us the importance of facing the Qibla and not compromising the deen just to please other people.
There are some things in our Deen in our religion, which we can not compromise on, no matter what other people say.
The four are those that are mandatory a bonus, for example, Salah facing the Qibla we cannot leave them just to please other people.
So over here, we are being told very clearly that if we abandon the commands of Allah, just to please other people, then we're committing. We're committing injustice.
For the question is, why is it so important to face the privilege? And I'm also counted as 14? I mean, what's the big deal we learned earlier? For NMR to aloof adamawa. So why is this such a big deal to just face the Carver? Why? Why is it such a big deal? What does it show?
It shows the unity of the Muslims. It shows discipline, that no matter where you are, you are going to turn towards the karma. And if there's one thing that the Muslims are united today, what is that?
Allah is one
and the Qibla that we face, that is also one that has been given to us. And remember that when we face the carbine Salah, we're not actually worshiping the Kaaba.
The karma is not the object of worship. What is the garba? Baitullah?
Allah, tell us what I number three, Phil Yabu are better than they should worship the Lord of this house, not the house, the Lord of this house.
The karma is just a symbol. It shows the Unity organization of the Muslims, that all of the Muslims no matter where they are, no matter where you are, what are you supposed to face the privilege?
And after attaining knowledge, what do we learn? We must not abandon knowledge just to please people.
When a person does not have knowledge, what is his way?
When a person does not know? And a person does not have knowledge? What does he do? What is his lifestyle? Like?
He's just doing things to please other people.
Whatever the people that are doing, he does that, isn't it? But when a person gains knowledge, then what should he do? He should become firm and that knowledge. He should follow that knowledge.
And your person does not follow that knowledge. And what's the difference between having knowledge and not having knowledge?
What's the difference between having knowledge and not having knowledge if a person does not follow the knowledge?
thermo says alladhina. Archana who Makita
those people to whom we have given the book which book the book over your first sort of delta and the engine,
the rd formula
They recognize it, or they recognize him. He already foreigner is from the reflectors I'm wrong.
I'm wrong. Modify,
modify, is to recognize something by its science. What is it for me to recognize something? by its science?
There is another word that is used for awareness, which is in what does it mean? Knowledge
is to know about something, to just be aware of something, have the awareness of it.
example, someone tells you, your mom told you, we worship Allah, because he's the only God.
That is what it is knowledge.
modifier is that you know, that you worship Allah because he's the only God. But you don't just know you have realized that for yourself. You have discovered that how, by studying the Quran
so well is that a person is just doing something, because he's been told, he just accepts things at their service. And the other is modify, which is that he recognizes something, he knows something. He knows why something should be done, why something should not be done? How is something in a particular way? And how can it's not in another way. That is what modifiers.
So those people to whom we have given the work that you who done the Masada, they recognize him, if we translate who as him than him refers to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And if we translate who has it, and it refers to the command to face the Kaaba in prayer,
so they recognize him or it coming in the same way, you're the foreigner of a home, they recognize their own sons. They recognize their own children.
Remember, the word of net is applauded, even even as used for son. But the plural form is used for both sons and daughters, just as the word Bunny is what you remember.
Now, what does it mean by their recognize him just as recognize their own songs?
If there are 50 children,
50 children, for example, there's a kids show going on, or in school, the children are even having a particular function, all the kids are coming up on the stage, or the parents able to recognize their own children.
Even though all the children are dressed up in the same costumes, they look all the same. And they're probably the same height as well. But the parent is able to pick out his own child. Similarly, sometimes there are twins in the family. to outsiders, the twins look exactly the same. They can ever differentiate between the two. But the parents, they know exactly. Who is who isn't it, they can tell them apart.
Even a person who was blind, a mother who was blind, can recognize her own child.
Because mollify is to recognize something by its signs. So even a blind mother, when she smelled her child, when she feels her child, she knows if it is her child, or somebody else's child.
So the people of the book, they recognize the Prophet sallallahu wasallam saw Well, why? Because all of His signs, his descriptions, they were aware of them. And they saw those descriptions, they saw the signs in him. The only foreigner who can I already forget.
The Hong Kong doctors has not been sat over here. Abner has been said, for two reasons. First of all, Abner includes daughters. Okay. And secondly, if we take up that as it is, then the Arabs, they love their sons,
the Arabs, they love their sons. And it wasn't just the Arabs, even today, so many people in so many countries. What do they do? They prefer their sons over their daughters, many cultures, many societies, it's true. It's a fact that all of us have seen probably with our own eyes, some may have even experienced it.
So you're a foreigner, who can I already funa urban at home, then you hit that? Well. Nobody has any difficulty in recognizing their own child. Similarly, the people of the book had no difficulty in recognizing the profits out of all the sudden, but they wouldn't believe in him. They wouldn't accept him. So the profits are a lot of that has been given comfort over here, that if they don't accept you, and if you're objecting at the commands of Allah, don't worry about them. Don't pay any attention to them.
They know you're the Prophet. They're just not accepting it.
NFL UConn and indeed the group which group meant home from among them. Which group from among the hood? their leaders, their rabbis, their scholars. What were they doing? They Actonel Hulk surely they hide the truth well homie are the moon while they know
meaning they knowingly deliberately conceal the truth which truth
this truth could refer to the truth of the profit subtle data center. It could also refer to the truth of the Tabler being the cover. So they deliberately hide the truth, knowingly hide the truth.
So whose fault is it? Yours or theirs? It's their fault.
And how can you Robic The truth is from your Lord.
What does it have to refer to the Quran? This particular command of facing the Kaaba in prayer. It is the truth and it is from your Lord. the changing of the equivalent is from your Lord fanatical unanimity among 30 so never be among those who doubt. Don't be doubtful at all.
Notice the word latha coonan definitely meaning never at all. Never be of those who doubt the word man 13 is a plural of the word 130
and 130 is from the newsletters meme ra
montery is one who has a media. What is media doubt? There is another word we read earlier for delta What is that? Right? Chuck is Gen ray is such a doubt that makes a person restless that takes the peace of a person's heart of
media is used for a doubt. That is with regards to effect, a doubt that is with regards to effect. When a person is doubtful about something factual.
For example, the child because his mother scolded him. He says I wonder if she's really my mother.
So don't do that. I wonder if I'm adopted? Children do that. So it is a fact. And media has to doubt about something that is factual about something in which a person should not have any doubt. So over here, what's that out? Is this command really from Allah? Should I really follow this command? Is this what I'm reading from Allah? Am I really a messenger? these doubts are about what about something that is factual?
A lot of hands on is telling the Prophet truth is from your Lord. Don't be of those who don't. Don't be doubtful at all. Don't be confused at all. So what do we learn from this? That everything that is from Allah soprano data is the truth
and helpful will love milotic it is the truth it is free from any doubt. And the person should not be doubtful of the truth. You should never be confused about the truth.
That's basically the recitation of these verses.
Whether in levena Ooh, Cheetah Barbie.
So have you done so far?
But the change of the Qibla the opposition of the people, the comments of people the remarks of people and how Allah subhanaw taala told the Muslims be firm on this. What do we learn from this?
Many times when we change our direction, when we change our focus towards that which is more important in life, what happens? Other people begin commenting, they begin objecting.
So what should we do
if we know
But what we're following is the truth. Be firm on it.
Don't be swayed by what other people have to say.
What else do we learn?
Even if you try to please some people, you cannot please everyone. So don't worry about pleasing people worry about pleasing.
Because the people of the book, some of them face the east, others face the West. And they wanted the profits that allowed them to continue facing, do certain beta masters. So here we're being told if you face beta blockers, even where would you face here or there,
if you face here, they will have a problem. If you face there, they will have a problem. People will never be happy with us.
And how come it Robic follow the hack, not the desires of people.
The Dean is allows, no matter what he tells us, what is our job to do it.
During solder, if they tell you this is the wrong Qiblah. And they don't tell you what the right filter is. Then you should tell the person afterwards that they should tell you what the right fibula is. And at that time, okay, if you don't know, then you have to obviously break your solder to find out which the right fit lies. If they're not telling you. Then you have to What other choice do you have?
Yes, we should obey the commands of Allah subhanaw taala without any delay, the Sahaba What did they do? in their record? They turned around how beautiful right away immediately without any delay, without waiting to find out, you know, after sada Why are you saying and What proof do you have? So no matter who is saying the truth provider who is telling us about the truth, what should we do? accept the truth? Because we're not really following the person who are we following the truth? What Allah subhanaw taala has taught us?
Yes, there will always be opposition, learn to be firm.
In everything, you will face opposition. Sometimes it's something small as Why do you cook food in this way?
And if we get stuck in proving ourselves, right, then what's going to happen? It's not going to get us anywhere.
