Al-Baqarah 163-171 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 168-171
Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
My mother who want to slowly or that also legal Karim and my birth for the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Al Rahim.
Rubbish heraclius odd way of silly mg. That Amelie signing melissani of kuqali. For Beginners in
Lesson number 22 we'll begin from number 168.
Yeah, Are you her nurse or mankind pulumi marfil ob Hillel until you eat from whatever is on the earth, that is lawful and good. While at the W Hotel watershed lawn, and do not follow the footsteps of shavon. Why? Because in the hula comb or the room will be he is to you a clear enemy. We see over here, that all of mankind is being addressed. And the command is to eat
and announce over here, people over here includes the believers and it also includes the disbelievers. Now the question is, what is the relationship of this command with the previous verses, the previous verses that we learned, they discussed about how love for other things, or love for those things which take us away from obedience to Allah soprano data is a source of great regret and punishment in the hereafter. Anything
that a person loves anything at all, if it takes him away from obedience to Allah, then it is going to be against him on the Day of Judgment, it is not going to help him at all.
Why? Because we see that love in this dunya
it requires a lot of sacrifice, and devotion and dedication. The one whom you love, the one whom you like, you will work for them, you will serve them you will sacrifice for them.
And the people of Mecca, the Arabs, not just the people of Macau, but the mosquito Mecca.
They used to love their idols. They're not their idols, because of which they would worship them.
And also, they would not agree with the profit sort of uncertain because they love their idols and they weren't willing to give them up
the differences between what the prophets are allowed to sort of taught and the ways of the machine they were many. But the one thing that the machine could not accept was that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told them, You should not worship the idols. They didn't disagree over. Okay, Zina is bad drinking alcohol is bad. Or speaking the truth is good. No, these differences Yes, they were there. They didn't agree with everything. But the main thing that they did not like what the prophet sallallahu Sallam told them, was that he told them that they should only worship one Allah.
Which is why we learned to that side, if if the people of Mecca they would say, a journal, early hasta la noir Haider has he made the gods only one God, we love our gods, we love these idols, we're not going to give them up at all. And in order to express their love and devotion to their gods, do their idols, they used to sacrifice animals for them.
They used to sacrifice animals, for the sake of the idols to get the pleasure of the idols. So sometimes they would literally sacrifice the animals for the sake of the idols. And other times, they would dedicate certain animals for the sake of the items. And what that meant was that that animal was allowed to do anything that the animal wanted to, that animal could not be slaughtered, it could not be eaten, nobody could ride upon it. Why? Because that particular animal was devoted to a particular item. Even in some places today. I've seen it myself, that certain animals, they're devoted, they've been dedicated to certain scenes, or certain places, or certain buyers, people who
used to live there before. And those animals they create so much chaos, but people don't touch them. They don't say anything to them. They're not supposed to be soldered, they're not supposed to be consumed. They're not supposed to be milk, nothing at all. They're sacred. And this is exactly what the machine did as well.
So the machine, they were criticized for having done so. In the following Ayah. Allah subhanaw taala tells them that Eat, eat what eat of that which is lawful and good. These animals that I've given you, they're not to be
sacrificed for the sake of your idols. They're not to be devoted for your idols dedicated to your idols. No, they're your risk. They're your provision, eat them, enjoy them
and other practices of the machine. They have also been criticized in the following verses. So over here we see Yeah, yohannes are people and a nurse includes all of the human beings. It includes the entire human race kulu all of you eat kulu is from the root fetters Hamza? kathlyn. Aquila, Aquila. Yeah, kulu to eat. And kulu This is a command it's an instruction.
it's a command that Allah subhanaw taala is giving to all people, what is that command, all of you should eat, what should you eat, mimic from that which minimize a combination of min and max, what should you eat member of that which fill RB is in the earth. Over here MyMathLab has been understood in two ways. First of all, it has been said that mean over here is explanatory, it is a band. So, main method of meaning of all that is on the earth. And obviously, all that is on the earth refers to that which is edible, that which the human beings can consume I mean, they're not being told over here, you should also eat rocks and you should also eat pebbles and you should also eat human beings
know obviously, what it means is that which is edible, all that is in the earth meaning everything that is edible everything that is suitable for human consumption.
Secondly, main over here has been understood as men of the
giving the meaning of some of
so eat of what some of that which is on the earth, meaning not everything, but some of and what does it mean by some of your liking what you like what you prefer.
So, may may fill up, but there are two conditions What are they that the food must be halal and it must be lawful and it must also be Pleven It should also be clean and pure. Otherwise halal is from the routers have lamb lamb,
her lamb lamb, and as you know halaal is that which is lawful literally pin means to open up something to untie something
the word handler is to solve a problem.
So hallen is that which is open meaning there is no restriction on it, you are allowed to consume it you are allowed to use it.
And remember that something is halal when it meets two conditions. The first condition is that it should be held in and of itself.
In and of itself, it should be something that is permissible to eat for example, and apple and orange. Similarly, animals that have been slaughtered in the proper way.
There are what Hillel ferrini Hillel in and of itself, there is no problem in eating such things. Obviously, it does not include those animals that have not been started the proper way, or animals that are forbidden to eat.
So this is the first condition. And the second condition of something being halal is that it should be halen
meaning in the way that it was earned or in the way that it was acquired. For example, apples and oranges, they're completely hidden. But if a person steals an apple,
or he buys it with money that he acquired through interest, that Apple is not going to be Hello. It's not permissible for him to eat it. Why? Because he stole it the way that he acquired it, the way that he earned it that way is incorrect. So the apple itself is fine, but because you acquired it the wrong way that's why it's not permissible for you to consume it. So Helen has two conditions. So eat that which is Helen
and also eat that which is for you. It's another condition for you based on the newsletters thought yeah, and inshallah we'll go into the details later on as well. But for now, by you, Baba is that which is clean
that which is pleasing that which is agreeable,
clean in the physical sense and also in the intangible sense
in the intangible sense. For example, if there is a particular animal that was sacrificed for the sake of an idle for the sake of a dead person, apparently it might be some meat that is very clean, but in the intangible sense, it is not clean.
Because it has been dedicated to someone other than Allah. So clean both in the tangible and intangible sense. And five also refers to that which is pleasing. That which is agreeable, and pleasing in the sense that it is good to look at smells good in its taste, it is good in its nutritional value, it's also good. It's not junk food. It's not just empty calories.
So halonen valuable, lawful, permissible, and it should also be pure, it should also be clean, it should also be pleasing.
So over here we see that everyone has been commanded, and what is the command, the command is to eat. The command is to eat, eat what everything that is on the earth, as long as it meets the requirements of Hillel, until you
remember that eating in some situations is what it is, it is mandatory upon the person to eat in certain situations. For example, if a person does not eat, and because of his not eating, he would become seriously ill, or he would become extremely weak, or he would die in certain situations, then inside a situation eating is a command eating is a must, it's an obligation on him.
and in this situation, even if a person does not wish to eat, he should eat why. Because there is the command of Allah, Allah has made it wide up upon him, not the doctor, not the family, who has made it up upon him. Allah subhanaw taala. And he should eat why in obedience to a muscle.
And if a person does not eat in this situation, this is an act of disobedience to him.
So in certain situations, eating is why it is mandatory. In other situations, eating is was that it is preferred, for example, a person is hungry, or go and eat something, don't be so cranky, don't be so lethargic, simply go eat something. So it is something that is preferred for a person, it is like he should eat. And in other situations, it is mobile, it is permissible. You're not hungry.
But it is okay for you to eat candy or chocolate bar, or some chips, you like them. So it's fine, but it is permissible.
And in other situations it is held on it is forbidden. such as
when a person is basking, or in a situation where a person is being offered her own food. He's not going to say oh, you know, if I don't eat this food, this person who's offering it to me, they will mind? No, in that situation eating that particular food is not lawful for you. Okay, so the command that is being given over here to everyone is to eat and depending on the situation, the ruling changes meaning either it is farmed, or it is Mr. hub or it is MOBA or it is haram. And if we look over here, that this is a loss of penalties, mercy, that he has created us, and he also wants us to benefit from those things that he has given us. He also wants us to benefit from those things that
he has given us. Many times when it comes to religion. When it comes to being religious, what do people think? Leave dunya leave eating, drinking, leave good food, eat dry bread with food that is bland? That's what they think being religious is it's not
obey over here the command is to eat and if a person eats, what is he doing?
He's obeying Allah and what is that bringing him reward? that's bringing him reward. So the simple act of eating becomes a reward. But what should people eat that which is hello and that will just tell you
why not that W and do not follow meaning Oreo people do not follow that the beer is from the
soda enough follow the hotel watershape on the footsteps of Chevron, what is the plural of hope? from the root letters call for well hope what a foot Wah
and hope what is used for literally it is the gap between two footsteps. Literally it is the gap that is between two footsteps.
And then the plural form fotoweb is used for footsteps It is used for steps. So do not follow the footsteps of rule. The footsteps are a shape on of the shaper.
Now what does it mean by following the hotel act of someone following the footsteps of someone? What does he mean by that?
What it means is that a person follows another in his actions,
a person follows another in his actions, because it varies to completely follow. And remember I told you it could be in the tangible sense, it could be in an intangible sense. It could be in statements, it could be actions, remember. So following the word of someone means following them in their actions. For example, following the hotel act of a camel is to go the exact same way that the camel went that you follow the footprints on the camera that you see in the sand. So you go the exact same way that the cannon went. So following the footsteps of someone is, do the exact same things that they're doing, to follow them in their actions. Now, the question is, what are the
footsteps of Shetland? What are the hot water shades on? Hold a lot of shaitan are the actions that they shave upon commits. They're the actions that the Shetland commits, and there are those actions that you find that he invites people to. He calls people to the ways the actions that he has adorned, he doesn't himself, and he also called people to do the same.
What is the way of shavon? What are the actions of Chevron? What are some of the things that Chevron does? Or has done that we know of?
The first thing that he did
disobedience, he didn't prostrate? Is the Kabbalah, arrogance.
in gratitude, disobedience, rebellion,
Allah, Panda told him to do something. And what did he do? He didn't do it. he disobeyed. He became arrogant. He did not submit to the command of Allah.
He was ungrateful for all of the favors of Allah.
And with regards to the matter of food,
what does the chef and
he calls us do eating that which is what I'm leaving that which is Hello, eating that which is how long for eating with the left hand.
So everything that Allah subhanaw taala has forbidden is what they are the hotel word of shavon. Because that is what she upon does, and that is what she upon invites us to whether it is this obedience, or arrogance, or lying,
or eating that witch's hat on anything at all that Allah has forbidden? What is that? Hope to add to shape on?
footsteps of shape?
And what is the loss in following shape on a hotel doesn't suit or to node io 21. We're maniac w hobo at shavonne. For inner who yet Monroeville fascia he will Moncure and whoever follows the footsteps of shavonne? Indeed, he enjoys immorality and wrongdoing. What does hit on command? immorality and disobeying of a subpoena.
So do not follow the footsteps of Chevron.
Generally, and specifically with regards to eating
with regards to eating, for example, what does she do with regards to eating? What does he tell us to do to eat that, which is Helen. And the first thing that shavon did was what that he made out of medicine and eat that which was how long? In general, everything was handled for other medicine except for just one tree, the fruit of just one tree.
And what did shavon say to him eat this and other medicine and the social bond invites us to eating that which is haram. He makes us forget. There's so many other halal options, everything is permissible.
And he makes us look at that, which is not permissible. Everything was Halloween. Jenna, what did he show to Adam? That one tree? That's what he called him to.
Similarly, something that is Halloween, something that is permissible to eat. What do people do? They don't eat it. For example, people say, Oh, I'm becoming a vegetarian and I don't eat meat. I don't drink milk. Because literally Some people say that, you know, we're not meant to eat meat or we're not meant to drink milk, milk. You know, cows that that produce milk that is supposed to fatten their calves and not us. I mean, milk was offered to the Prophet said about us when he when he went up to me, Raj, how can you say
That milk is not good for you.
Biologically, we've been made such that we have teeth that can tear meat and that can chew vegetables. So biologically, we are able to eat both meat and vegetables. We are to drink milk, they're beneficial for us. Allah has made all of these things for us. May may feel of whatever that is on the earth as long as it is Helen and for you. Right. So what does Chevron do? Don't eat this. It's not good for you don't need that. It's not good for you. Okay, one thing is okay. Yes, food is not good for you. It's not. It's not clean. It's dirty. Its filthy. It's rotten. It spoiled or it has a lot of chemicals in it. Okay, fine. Don't eat that. But don't say that it is heaven. Don't say
that. You should not eat it. Don't say that? Because it says the waveshaper. Similarly, when it comes to eating, what does your time make us do? Either he makes us eat a lot.
or very little. What should we do? We should be moderate when it comes to eating. Similarly, after eating, what does Japan make us? Do?
We ungrateful. You know, the food was okay. I didn't really enjoy it. It wasn't that great. It's too bland. to dry, too spicy. We complain about it? Or sometimes what do people do they make fun of food. That is also the footsteps or shape on making fun of food or making fun of certain cuisines, or a certain type of food, the way that certain people cook, or their food is so bland or therefore just smells or their food is sticky. How can you eat it? Every culture, every family for that matter, has their own way of cooking has their own taste. And we are no one to pass comments on food. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam never criticized any food that was presented to him. And he
would eat it if he liked it. And if he did not like it, he would just leave it without expressing any dislike for that particular food. And this is reported in Bahati. He never criticized any food. He wouldn't eat it and sometimes, at certain occasions, you know, the companions that would ask him that is this food forbidden? And he would say no, it's not forbidden, you can eat it, but I just don't like it for myself. It's not a personal preference.
So when it comes to eating, what does shaytan make us do? All of these things. Allah tells us do not follow the footsteps of Stefan. Why? Because in no local murder will be indeed he is to you an open enemy. The word I do is from the refreshers is that well, kinda, and I do is the opposite of Saudi acoustasonic. A friend. So I do is an enemy. Or, it has been said that I do is the opposite of when he who is already a guardian, someone who protects you. And our do is the opposite of that doesn't protect you, is not close to you doesn't want any good for you. It is said that and I do an enemy is one who is happy at the other suffering.
So when a person is suffering, the enemy he is happy. And when the person is happy, the enemy is upset. This is who in Urdu is someone who is very, very insincere, someone who does not want any good for you. If you enjoy good, he is sad. If you suffer, he is happy. This is an enemy who is shaitan he is an enemy to you. And what kind of an enemy he is, he is moonbeam moodiness on myriad factors by noon, what does bagnet What does it mean clear? Thank you by you know clear. So Mobius is that which is evident that which is clear in itself. So what does he mean by that he is a moving enemy to you, meaning his enmity is evident. His enmity is clear, he has clearly manifested his
enmity against him.
By saying that he will definitely misguide you, he will try his best to lead you astray. So, because he is your enemy, therefore, you must not follow him. Why? Because an enemy never wishes good for his for.
So in other words, anything that shavon calls you do, it is not good for you. And notice how the word hotwired is blowing in his footsteps. When you're walking, or when you're running, what happens one footstep leads to another which leads to another and this is what happens, it begins from eating that which is head on, or it begins from being ungrateful for the food that a person has. And then it leads to another sin which leads to another sin which leads to another and the chain continues until a person has gone far off in
misguidance. So, eating that which is halaal is something very important and this is one of the first things that chepang tries to take us away from, he takes us to eating that which is headlong into who the other one will be. And if we follow Him, we are going to suffer great loss. Allah tells us and sort of de Missa i 119, Romania, Turkey, the Shavasana alien, min dunlea falcoda, hasura hosono, Medina, and whoever takes her upon as an ally, instead of Allah has certainly sustained a clear loss. Anyone who is going to follow Shere Khan, he is going to suffer a clear loss. So what is the command that is being given over here in this IRA?
Each member will have everything that is on the earth, as long as it's suitable for your consumption. And what are the two conditions? It should be Hello. And it should be? It should be clean, it should be good.
And what's the second thing that we're told over here? Do not follow shape on
do not follow the ways of shape? One? other question is, when it comes to Dean, we think about things like wearing the hijab or praying on our giving this occurred or things like that, isn't it? So how come over here we're being taught to eat? I mean, what is eating what to do with our Deen?
What does eating got to do with learning? Why does the deen interfere with regards to eating and drinking?
What you eat gives you the energy to be able to do something and we are supposed to availa to do everybody.
Exactly what we eat affects us.
All we have heard you are what you eat.
It's become very cliche, but it's very true. You are what you eat, what you eat, what you drink,
affects you. Because eating and drinking is a major part of your life.
You're here and you think, Okay, what am I going to have for open my past? And in the morning? What am I going to have? And when we're not fasting? Okay, what am I going to have for lunch? What am I going to have for dinner? What am I going to cook when I go home? When the weekend comes, okay after grocery, when you're going home? On the way like, Okay, do I have to pick anything in the grocery store? Eating and drinking is a major part of the life of the human being. It's a major part. And whatever a person eats, it affects him. It affects his actions. Like for example,
if a person is has eaten a lot,
for example, what is he going to be like? How is he going to be lazy,
he's not going to have the energy to move around, he's just going to want to sit on the couch and lay down.
And sometimes, when you eat right before going to bed, what happens? You dream about weird things. You dream about weird things. It happens with some people, if they eat right before going to bed, they have the craziest dreams ever. And sometimes what happens is that all that food that we've eaten, our body needs the energy to process all that food. So all of the energy is going to what to digest all that food. And as a result what happens a person doesn't have the energy to do something, or the energy to get up and pray. And sometimes when we have a very heavy of thought, what happens after we die, we can't stand the food is right up to here, over burping and the food that we've
eaten, the oily food that we've eaten is coming up to our mouths and the breath is not going away. Eating and drinking is a major part of our lives and it affects us every single day.
And this is the mercy of Allah that Allah has guided us as to what to eat, and what not to eat.
So shaytaan What does he do? He
commands us to eat that which is forbidden, or commands us to eat that which is harmful. That which is not there yet. And if a person follows a photo of shavon shavon is an enemy is going to suffer great loss. So what do we learn from this ayah? First of all, it's a great mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that he has permitted everything for us that is on the earth as long as it is highlighted. I'm telling you
it's a great mercy of Allah. Imagine if we were given a list, that you're only allowed to eat this, this and this, because the rule in Islam is that everything when it comes to eating that everything is Hillel, unless otherwise stated, unless if it is stated,
everything is permissible, unless it is stated.
And we know about things that are haram to consume from the Quran. And from the Sunnah as well. I mean we have been clearly instructed. Also we learn from here that we must not follow the way of Shabbat
And that includes matters related to eating. And this includes eating or drinking with a left hand. For example, there is a hadith that is mentioned in Sahih Muslim laya Guru hadoken Vishy Maliki. None of you should eat with his left hand whether Yeshua will be Somali and nor should he drink from his left hand. Why, for English a partner yet Guru bishi Maliki why shabu missionary, because shavon he eats and he drinks with his left. Remember, the hotel word of someone is what doing exactly what they do. shavon eats and drinks with his left and he commands us. He invites us also to do what to eat from our left in the Maya Motor Company, so he will fascia Indeed, he orders you with evil and
immorality. Indeed, not but in the law, as you know is a combination of inner and inner means indeed, and man gives the meaning of hustle, man is for hustle. What does hustle mean? To limit to constrict. So in?
Meaning Indeed, the fact is only this, the reality is only this, that shavon when he commands you, what is the only thing that is commanding you to do a suit and fascia. In other words, he's not commanding you to do anything that is good. He's only commanding you to do that which is suit and fashion. The word suit isn't the real pleasure scene while Hamza, the word say he say he is also from the same route. And so, is literally anything which makes a person said what is so anything that makes a person set
and so is used for any suffering,
that a person experiences, whether it is with regards to the matters of the dunya or it is with regards to the matters of the hereafter.
Similarly, it could be something that a person suffers in his body, like physically, like a headache, for example. And it could be something that a person suffers in his heart, for example, you know, some feeling sadness, depression, it could be something that a person suffers and as well.
So, so is anything that makes a person said, that makes a person sad. And it could be anything that is related to the Dean of the person to any other person, the body of a person, the wealth of a person, the spiritual aspect of a person. This is the literal meaning of the word soup. And the word soup is sometimes used for sins. Why? Because sins, what do they do?
What do they do? They bring harm to us, in the dunya, as well as the alpha.
And in the dunya. And the sins, what do they do? They make a person feel sad.
Sometimes you are very angry at someone and you vent out all your anger and you show that anger. They don't How do you feel?
What was I thinking? How could I ever say that? I shouldn't have done that. So in the dunya Also, since they make us sad, and in the Sahara, obviously, they're going to make people sad. And the word zoo in particular is used for minor since it is used for severe lessons, minor things.
Social fun commands you to commit minor things that make you sad in the dunya and also the alpha.
And what else does he command you with? Well, fascia and the indecency fascia is a little veterus for hashey. And fracture is every action or statement that is beyond bounds. That is very excessive that has exceeded all bounds. It's not acceptable.
To the dean to the shadier to the uncle, Ingrid has exceeded all bounds. It's not acceptable at all.
And Russia in particular is used for those things that are off sexual nature.
For example, it refers to Xena committing fornication, homosexuality.
Similarly, it applies to foul words foul language that is sexual.
And fascia is any action or any statement that when it is done, or when it is even heard of, what does it do? People don't like to see it. People don't like to even listen about it.
People don't like to even listen about. For example, if someone is murdered if someone is killed
That is what fasher.
You don't want to witness anyone being murdered and you don't want to even hear how they were killed. But unfortunately, today, people's hearts have become so hard that they will kill their own in public, and nobody will dare to stop. Nobody will dare to stop them from doing what they're doing. And they will make a whole video and they will spread it and people will watch it, they will tell other people about it, their hearts have become so hard fascia is an action that is not acceptable at all. It has exceeded bounds your mind cannot accept it. Your Dean cannot accept it. Your logic cannot accept it, you cannot fathom it, you cannot comprehend it you can just not take
it. You can hear about it you can see it being done. That is what fracture is.
And it is that that fascia refers to major sins, suet refers to minor sins and fascia refers to major sins and when So, and fascia are mentioned together, then what does it mean that he commands you to do what all types of bad deeds, all types of evil deeds, no matter how minor, or how major they are, this is what she upon commanded us to do. So, he does not command you to do that, which is say, but he only orders you to commit sins, He only orders you to commit sins. And this is specifically to the context of eating, what happens for example, so could refer to my nursing could refer to for example, if a person does not eat properly, or he eats too much than what happens, it
affects his behavior with other people, it affects his being with other people, sometimes we will come very cranky, very grouchy. Why? Because I haven't eaten properly, or they've eaten too much. And what happens, they delay their Salah or they route to their parents, they disobey their parents they shouted them, just leave me alone, let me do what I want to Who are you to tell me. So it leads to my nurses. Similarly, with regards to eating major centers, for example, eating that which is how long
in the context because so old fashioned, the general sense, but in the context, the context of eating. So how the chevron commanders to do that which is fascia, commit a major sin with regards to eating, eating that which is not permissible.
Well under kulu, meaning any also commands you to say, or the law against a law meaning about Allah, mad that which letter the moon you do not know. In other words, he commands you to say about Allah, something that you have no knowledge of.
He commands you to ascribe statements to Allah without any knowledge.
Now there are three possibilities of ascribing a statement to a law. There are three possibilities of ascribing a statement to Allah supremacy.
First is, that a person describes to a law a statement, which Allah has in fact said, which Allah has said which Allah subhanaw taala has stated. So for example, we learned in the Quran that Allah subhanaw taala has told all of mankind to eat that which is highlighted for you.
So, this is a statement that Allah has said, Allah has stated. So, a person what does he do? He says to another, you should eat that which is halal, you should eat that we just lay it Why? Because Allah has said So, is this correct? Yes, it is correct. Why, because he is ascribing to Allah a statement that Allah has indeed said and in some situations, it becomes mandatory upon a person to say these statements to tell others about them in certain situations, because we learned earlier and inshallah we will read again in the following verses about the punishment or the sin of concealing knowledge of concealing that which is beneficial for people. So, if you have learned to overcome
have a loss of panel data and other people need to know about that, it becomes mandatory on you to tell them of that command. So this is one way of describing the statement.
Another way is that a person knowingly ascribes to a loss of final data a statement, which Allah has not said, which Allah so panel data has not stated.
So what does he do? He knowingly deliberately ascribes to Allah a statement which Allah has not said. Or he says a statement that is contrary to the statement of Allah and this is forbidden.
For example, sometimes you will say, Oh, you know, this type of food is halal, or does not actually have that. And he says that deliberate
knowingly and he says, I look around just to make himself more worthy of being accepted. Just to give more value to the statement, what is he doing? He says it's in the Quran. Similarly, a person says, Oh, this is unlawful, this is completely Haram, whereas it's not actually Haram. And he says, Oh, it's in the Quran.
So this is an action that is completely forbidden.
A third possibility is that a person ascribes to a loss of panatela statement, which he does not know, if Allah has stated it or not, he is doubtful. He's not sure whether Allah really said it or not. And if a person does that, that is also,
this is also forbidden. Because you're unsure, there's a probability of that statement being true. And there's a probability of that statement being false.
So because there is a chance, therefore, it is forbidden. So we see that indeed, we shouldn't just make up things, we shouldn't just guess. If we don't know, if we're doubtful, we should remain quiet.
So over here, we learn that shaytan he commands us to say about Allah, or make statements to fabricate statements and ascribe them to Allah, how, without any knowledge, without any knowledge, and this is something that is forbidden. And remember that these statements could be with regards to the commands available, it could be with regards to the actions of Allah, it could be with regards to the names and attributes of Allah. So this is something that is forbidden. We should only speak when we're sure.
Now in the days of ignorance, before Islam, in the earlier
people made certain things, certain hollow things held on and they made certain held on things Hello.
And they would say, oh, we're doing it because a lot of us do. Or we're doing this because this is what pleases Allah.
And they had absolutely no evidence for that. They had no proof of it. For example, we learned a little out of it number 28. Allah says, What either farlo fisherton or Lou what are the NA La Habana? Well lo Marana BIA,
and when they commit an immorality, for example, the people of j Liang, as we know that they have placed idols such as SF and nyla. Were
on Mount safa and marwah. Similarly, they would perform the left while being naked. And they would say, we found our forefathers doing it. And Allah has ordered us to do it. They would say Allah has commanded us to do it. Therefore, we're doing it. What does Allah say? Call in Allah hilarya Maru Bedfordshire at the coluna Allah human that Allah will say, Indeed, Allah does not order immorality, Allah never gives a command that is immoral, that is a fracture, do you say about a law that which you do not know? So they will do certain things and they would say Allah has commanded us to do them?
Or they would make certain things haram and they would say Allah has commanded us to do so. But the reality is that no one even the prophets are allowed to sue them has not been given the authority to make the harem Hillel or to make the Hillel haram when the prophets are allowed to Salah made honey unlawful on himself. Allah soprano Dada objected he did not allow him to do so.
As we learned in the Quran, it was revealed Lima to howdy mama Holla Holla. Why do you make unlawful what Allah has made lawful for you?
We have not been given the permission to make the lawful, unlawful or to make the unlawful, lawful, instead of the natural eye number 116. Allah says, while at the Hulu, the Motley Fool elsina tecoma al Qaeda had a hallelujah or had a heroin lit after an AMA HCA and do not say about what your tongues assert of untruth, that this is lawful, and this is unlawful, don't say such things to invent falsehood about Allah.
So with regards to the matter of eating as well, we have no authority to say, Oh, this is halal, whereas it's not actually halal. Or this is how long wait, it's not actually how long
it is shaped on who tells us that we should say about Allah something that we have no knowledge of
something that is untrue. And many times when it comes to eating, what do people do? When they want to eat hot on what will they do? They will say similar statements.
And when it comes to leaving that which is harder, they will do similar things, they will say similar statements.
So what lessons do we learn from this ayah that we should
not listened to shavonne because he can understood that which is wrong and also we should not speak without knowledge. We should not speak without knowledge. We should only say that which we are sure of. If we are not sure about something, what should we do? What should we do? We should stay silent. We should be quiet we should say I don't know. I'm sorry.
insulted, I love I number 33 a las panatela says Paul innama Hello Murat Bellflower heisha Malhotra minha oma baton, say my lord has forbidden immoralities what is apparent of them and what is concealed? And then there is a list of several things that are Lost Planet Allah has forbidden and at the end of the ayah will enter kulu Allah Allahu Allah tala moon and that you say about Allah that which you do not know this is also forbidden, it is how long we are not allowed to say about a lot that which we do not know.
so easily. So quickly. We get further we get one No, this is Yeah, this is Hello. No, this is how long a normal speeches were, how long? How long? I mean, who are we to say that? Who are we to say that? We have no authority to make halau things how long and how long things had, we should keep the religion of Allah as it is.
what either leader whom, and when it is said to them said to when it is set to the disbelievers because remember the context specifically is
the machine of Mecca, the disbelievers, but we can also take many lessons from these verses for ourselves. So what is set to them? What is set to them, it turns out all of you should follow what should you follow? madonsela Allah that which Allah has sent them, follow that which Allah has revealed. What is it that Allah so panel God has revealed?
and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam certain other commands which we know as the Sunnah of the Prophet sort of are the Sunnah. So follow that which Allah has revealed to the Quran, the Sunnah, and what are the Quran and Sunnah teach us what do they have certain commands, and certain prohibitions, which include commands and prohibitions with regards to eating. So when they're told, follow what Allah has sent, don't follow the Quran and Sunnah. Follow the commands of Allah, stay away from those things that Allah has prohibited. And remember, that it Devourer of this is done meaning following what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed, is done in three ways. First of all, in
earthly the, in earthly the in belief that a person believes that what Allah has sent down must be followed. Secondly, in code, in statement, that a person also says that what Allah has sent, what Allah has revealed, must be followed. And infared. It is also done through fear that a person doesn't just believe and doesn't just say, but he actually follows the commands as well. He actually observes those commands as well. So when they're told it to be Roma answered Allah, follow in your acleda in your coal, in your fair, what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed, what is their response? They say pallu they say, well, rather, what is value? it negates, what is it negating over here?
It's a V, Roma and that Allah, so the same No, no, we're not going to follow what Allah sent down. Instead, not who we will follow, man that which and finally ever, and that which we found our forefathers on the ways that we found our forefathers on.
Athena is from the room fetters lamb fair? Well,
lamb fair, well, loved one.
And loved one is to find something by chance. You weren't looking for it. You weren't searching for it, but just found it.
Like, sometimes you're going somewhere and you're walking and all of a sudden you find money on the floor.
You weren't looking for it, but you just found it. Similarly, you're going somewhere, you weren't going in search of a particular person, but it just happened to find him there. So this is what love one is.
And left one is also to find someone persistent and regular and consistent on a particular ritual, or in a particular habit, a particular way, a particular act of worship.
So it is to find someone very consistent on a particular act of worship. So we're only going to follow
That way, which we found, our forefathers practicing.
I remember the word Abba is the plural of. And by fathers, it means father, grandfather, uncles and four, great grandfather's, and so on. So what they mean by their forefathers? Is their culture, their traditions, the things that they've always done. Does it sound familiar?
Many times people say, Well, this is just part of our tradition and culture, we are family, we always do that. We always do that this is a part of our tradition, this is part of our culture. So they say that we're going to follow them. Follow the ways we're forefathers in a pita in our Mo, whether it is true or not, whether the ways our forefathers are correct or not. We don't care about whether they're correct or not. We're just going to follow them. Why? Because that's our tradition. That's our practice. Even though what Allah has commanded is different. We're not going to follow that. We're going to follow our traditions. Allah questions us.
Meaning what are they still going to follow? their forefathers will know, even if Ghana ever won their forefathers are laity, Luna shaden, they do not understand anything. Are they going to continue to follow their forefathers even though their forefathers don't understand anything at all? Yaki Lunas from the veterans in Koffler
an aka what is our
intellect, our curriculum, to use one's intellect, to use logic to be reasonable to use the mind that Allah has given?
And remember that Aqua is of two types. Right? What are the two types of apple? or cloth? First of all, what is it about to just perceive things on their surface to just know what they are? That's it, and rushed to go deeper and to take a lesson? Right?
So are they going to continue their forefathers even though their forefathers do not understand shaden anything? Now doesn't mean that their forefathers or their ancestors, they didn't have a clue? Which kind of alkalosis This article is that have rushed?
This article is that have rushed?
Meaning they did not understand anything. With regards to the matters of the deen with regards to the matters of ophira. They may be very intelligent, very smart with regards to the matters of their dunya. They may be very successful businessmen. They may be very successful people in their in their worldly affairs. But when it comes to Dean, they didn't understand the they didn't have the knowledge of the dean. So are they still going to follow them? When I don't know Are they guided? Who does they refer to their forefathers? Meaning Are you still going to follow them even though they were not rightly guided? The afternoon is wondering veterans had earlier he died, what does he
die me guidance and at their to obtain guidance. So even though their forefathers were not guided to the right way.
Now we see that following and obeying our parents, our leaders is something that is but is it mandatory upon us isn't it will be invalidated. One of the things that we learned was that we must obey our parents. Similarly, following the need, following the leader is something that is mandatory upon the followers, we have been told to do some and then we must listen and we must obey. But following our parents or following even the leaders is forbidden when there are two things, two situations. First of all, that there is no reasoning in what they command us to do. There is absolutely no logic in what the command is to do. What they're commanding does not make sense. For
example, if a parent tells their child that they should jump in the fire, or they should kill themselves, should the child to be the parent. No.
Once there was a group of the companions, and they went on an expedition and the leader who was appointed for them, he commanded the companions to make a huge fire and to jump into that fire. Because he got very upset with them. And the companions obviously they didn't listen to him. And when they returned, and the dollar profits are a lot isn't about it. And this is just a gist of what he said that if you had obeyed, then both you and him, all of you and him would be in the hellfire.
Because the command
does not make sense. The command is completely illogical. It is against the commands of Allah soprano.
So this is one situation in which we are not to follow our forefathers or our parents or our leaders.
But remember that sometimes we think that what they're telling us to do is illogical doesn't make sense. Whereas, actually, it does make sense.
So what's the criteria? It should not be against the commands of Allah. That's the criteria.
Because remember, layer can only show you that aka has to do with Russia with the Daya. They don't understand any matter of Deen.
And secondly, the second situation in which we are not to follow our forefathers of our leaders is when they're not rightly guided, when they do not have the knowledge of the deen. And because they do not have the knowledge of the deen. If they're telling us something that is against the deen, we're not going to follow them. Now, it doesn't give you permission to become very rude to them, to disobey them with regards to every other matter.
Or not give any importance to them or be harsh to them, or think that they don't have any sense. And they don't know what they're talking about. And not respect them. No, this is not what it means.
Our parents are our parents. If they tell us to do something, which does not make sense, which is against the dean, yes, we're not going to follow it. But at the same time, we're not going to be rude to them. We have to respect them.
We see that some people, they're very intelligent when it comes to the dunya.
Very intelligent when it comes to the unit, but when it comes to the deen, they have no knowledge about it. They have no knowledge about the T. And if the children if they learn about the deen, then what should they do? They should follow the theme and not the practices that have been prevalent in their culture or in their tradition or in their family. They should give priority to what to do, they should follow the theme.
And many times we see over here that What did they say? They said that we're going to follow our forefathers. Many times when it comes to the deen, we don't use our mind. We don't use the knowledge that a loss of paradigm has given us. And what do we say? We're just going to follow? We're just going to do what our parents have been doing? Do we dress in the same way that our forefathers did? 15 2030 years ago? 50 years ago, 100 years ago? No. Do we live in the same way? Do we eat the same type of food? No, we don't. So why is it that when it comes to the deen we don't use the knowledge that Allah has given us. And instead, we rely completely on the ways and practices of our tradition
and culture. Why? We don't live the same way we don't dress the same way. We don't think the same way. We don't do the same things. When it comes to dunya. We change, we improve but when it comes to Deen, we don't improve. We don't give priority to that. So over here, people are being questioned that are you going to follow them, even though they don't have any intellect. And they're not rightly guided, are you still going to follow them? You're not going to follow them You shouldn't follow them.
Why am I letting a cat photo and the example of those people who have disbelieved?
The example of who have those people who have disbelieved?
Which example, an example for what
an example of the manner in which they follow their forefathers. Because the previous it tells us that they did not look at the deen but what do they do? They just blindly follow their forefathers. So the example of the manner in which they follow their forefathers is what
is off camera Sally, like the example of an ad Enrico The one who shouts Enrico is from the roof fetters noon, I'm cough noon, I'm cough now, or narrower
nine cloth with a spoon on the rain or a castle under the rain, narrow or narrow.
Narrow is used for screaming, shouting, yelling, crying
and the word is used in several ways. For example, the word NERC is used for shouting out at someone very loudly, shouting out at someone very loudly. Similarly, the word is used for the coin of a crow when a crow cause very loudly and very harshly.
Have you heard that?
Probably not. But some people may have because once they start calling, they're like, so loud and so harsh and they continue to call
So this is also nice.
Similarly, the word nerd is also used for the yelling of the shepherd at his flock, at his herd from far. So just imagine a shepherd who is very far from his flock, what is he going to do? He's going to shout out at them, you're going to yell at them.
And from this, the word narc is used for every loud shout or every load screen.
So the example of the disbelievers is like what is like the one who shouts The one who shouts at who the one who yells at Who? The one who yells at Bhima at that which man is the one who is being called the one who is being shouted at the one who is being yelled at. Who is it layers Maru? does not hear it ladra except a call when either or a cry Who is this a lady younger is the one who shouts out and remember younger echo is used for who's shouting out someone loud in particular it is used for a shepherd yelling at his flock yelling at his herd so the shepherd who is yelling it be my Elias Maru Electra when he the manner over here first to the animals, the flock the herd.
Why is the word man used because man as opposed to man is used for that which does not have that which is later on?
So the animals they don't have?
You say rude things to the cow doesn't get it? You praise the cow, you're so nice. You're gonna get it? No, it's later.
So we may lay a smell something or those animals that do not hear Yes, marrows, from some what the summer mean to here. And over here summer gives a meaning of understanding. It gives them enough understanding. So they do not hear in other Ananda except a call or cry. The word dog is on the roof. So then, well, Andorra is used for a meaningful call.
What is it a meaningful call?
A call that is meaningful, meaning you're not just saying hey, or, or but you're saying, for example, bring this or do this or come here. That is what drives it's a meaningful call. And there is also used for calling out to someone or something specific by taking their name. For example, you say, Maria, can you do this for me?
And also think of it that there are that you make to Allah subhanaw taala? How do you make it either with Rob Burnett, or our Lord, or you say Allahumma O Allah. So you take the name of Allah, you mentioned his name. So the idea is to call out to someone or something, how, by taking their name.
And it is also meaningful.
It is not meaningless. And the word NIDA is loot letters known Dahlia, and that can be used for a call that is meaningless. So you're saying sounds like or, you know, he or you're, I mean, what does that mean? So, that could be a call that is meaningless. And it is also used for a call that is general and not specific. The law is specific, and neither is general
is specific, and neither is general.
So these animals, when they're yelled at by the shepherd, when they're shouted at by the shepherd, they don't comprehend anything, except just a sound, or a cry. That is just, you know, striking them. And they, and they just know that they're being called, that's it. So if they're called specifically with a DA, for example, a particular animal is called, or particular animal is taken. The animal doesn't know what he's being told. He doesn't know if the master is taking him to slaughter it. Or if the master is if the shepherd is taking the animal to milk it or to tie it or to sell it, or to do whatever with it, the animal does not know. Similarly, when a leader is made when
the animals are shouted at, in the general sense when all of them are called. Do they know what the need there is? No. All they hear is just a shout or a cry. They have no idea of what that shout or cry means. They have no idea of what that shout or cry means. They just hear a sound.
They will talk to a cow. Is it good? understand anything? No. Try talking to a goat. The sheep. Is it gonna understand anything? No. But it's amazing how they respond.
Especially the shepherd
Sometimes, you know if if you've seen some people when they had chickens, what they do is that they make this a sound and all the chickens just come running to them. They know it's food.
Sometimes you go to a farm and they're trying to catch the chickens and they will run out to them for hours, but they will be unable to do so. And you say, Aha, all the chickens will come in, you just grab it right there.
So the example of the disbelievers is the same,
how this example can be understood in two ways. That first of all, when the disbelievers they listen to an admonition, when they listen to an advice,
they're only like animals. How that they just hear the sounds, but they don't comprehend what that sound means. They don't comprehend what that admonition means.
If you look at it, every messenger, every prophet was a shepherd.
And every prophet, every messenger, what did he do? He called the people. But the people, those people who disbelieve What did they do?
They didn't comprehend the admonition that was given to them the advice that was given to them. So this is one way of understanding this example.
Another way is that the disbelievers they blindly follow their forefathers without knowing without comprehending what exactly the ways the practices of their forefathers are taking them to. Just like the animals, they're just shouted, they're yelled at and they follow. They have no idea if the master is taking them to kill them, they have no idea. They have no idea if the master is taking them to slaughter them, to milk them to tie them to lock them in to sell them to send them across miles and miles away. The elder No idea. Similarly, these people, they follow their forefathers without knowing the consequences of where they're going of where they're headed.
They don't use a reason which is why unless has someone there ones who are deaf. Someone is a Florida or some one who is unable to hear Bookman once we're done Florida love apcom, one was unable to speak or Mune, Florida aroma. One was unable to see foam layer crew. So they do not understand they do not comprehend. What does it mean that these people there are deaf, dumb and blind in the physical sense in the literal sense, but rather what it means is that they're incapable of listening to the truth, of comprehending the truth of speaking it out and seeing it through for whom layer Kilonzo as a result, they do not comprehend what do they not comprehend any advice that is given to
them? Any logic that is presented to them any command that is given to them? Because in the previous ayah, they were told, will you still follow your forefathers even if they don't understand anything? And even if they're not rightly guided? What did the people do?
What did the people say? Yes, we are going to we are going to choose the ways our forefathers. We know about so many disbelievers of Mecca, they saw the truth they knew that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was truthful, but what did they do? I cannot leave the way of my forefathers. So their way is the same as these animals who have no idea where they're headed.
If you look at the shout of the shepherd, it is young Riku first and there are any that is loud it is clear, but still they don't get it. Still don't hear it still don't comprehend it.
Let's listen to these verses.
In many cultures, there are certain cultural practices or certain traditions, which have absolutely no meaning. And sometimes they have come from cultures that are of disbelievers. But many times we continue to do them Why?
Because this is what our forefathers did.
And if we go against them, we will not be able to face the rest of the family.
And sometimes these practices, they include a slough, a lot of wastage of money. Sometimes they include disobedience to Allah. But still people will do them
a lot questions as Are you still going to do it when it's illogical? It doesn't make sense to throw your money out like that. And secondly, it's against the way that Allah has told you Are you still going to do it, but you're not going to do it, you shouldn't do it.
Many times. When it comes to traditions and practices, we tell our family that this is wrong. This is incorrect, but it's only a shout or a cry to them, which they do not comprehend, which they do not accept.
If you connect these verses with the previous ones that we studied about love, about connections about relationships. We know that on the Day of Judgment, what the Qatari beam will ascribe all connections, all relationships will be cut off. So if today, because of the love that we have for our tradition, for our culture, for our practices, we are disobeying Allah, we're going against the commands of Allah, what use are they tomorrow? What use are they tomorrow?
We should follow and we should give preference to the way off the Koran and the way of the prophets of Allah Selim. Okay, so we have learnt the lesson Alhamdulillah. Now, what if you want to do something, and your parents don't want you to do it? Because it is against the culture, not against the dean, but it is against the culture? What are you going to do?
What are you going to do? What are you going to do? What have you learned? Yes.
So first of all, you talk to them, you try to make them understand?
And what if they still don't understand? What if they still don't accept,
you see, analyze that particular situation? Sometimes they're telling us to do that, which may not be wrong,
may not be wrong. It is a part of the tradition, it is a part of the culture, but it is not against the Quran and Sunnah. It's not. So in such a situation, even though you don't want to do it, what can you do, you can still do it. Why? Because if you go against them, then what's going to happen? You're gonna lose your family in the dunya, even. Because sometimes these cultural bonds and connections are very, very important. And sometimes if a person goes against the culture, then he's an outcast. Literally, he's an outcast. So it depends on the situation, if they're telling you to do something, which is not wrong, which is okay, which is permissible, then do it. And if they're
stopping you from something that is permissible, that is allowed for you to do it. But they're stopping you only because it contradicts the culture, then in that situation, you can evaluate that this thing which is permissible for me, is it a must on me to do it, meaning there's no other way for me to do it. Sometimes there is a choice, for example, there's a situation of marriage, you want to marry a particular person. And what happens your parents, they say, No, because he doesn't belong to our family, you cannot marry him.
And they want you to marry someone who is from your family. So what are you going to do? Or you're going against the dean, and that said, I'm not going to listen to you. You have to evaluate the situation, try talking to them. If they don't get it, then make the article. Make the article, may Allah open their hearts. And if they still stop you from marrying that particular person, then it's possible that even there is a person from the family, which they stop you from marrying. I mean, you have to take the permission of your parents. Right? So evaluate the situation.
Okay. And don't just say, whatever my parents say, because it's part of the culture. It's wrong. I'm not going to do it. No, sometimes those things are right. Sometimes those things are right, they are correct.
Because in these situations, if you leave your family, and you go marry your particular man, because you know, he's not from the family and you like that particular person, you've lost your family and you never know what happens in the future. There are people who have lost their family on one side, and the man whom they loved on the other side as well.
If there is no contradiction between the command of Allah and
The command of the parents then evaluate the situation and do what is appropriate.
