murder Allah Allahu member Hadith in Walesa Ebert in whatever we'll see that in a while there Herman
Allah has not appointed such innovations as the hero or sir Eva or was Lila or ham what I can Latina cafaro yesterday una Allah La Hill kariba will external home layer appealing but those who disbelieve in when faults are about Allah and most of them do not reason.
In the previous if we learned about what it is that has been instituted by a loss of panel data in the deen
that general Allahu garburator alvvays elevate and how long
that Allah subhanaw taala has instituted in the deen world, the Carver the sacredness of the Kaaba, the sacredness of the sacred month as well as the Heidi and the color it
over here a loss of petals or dimensions as to what is not a part of the game. And people have themselves invented this. People themselves have invented this into the it doesn't have any basis any foundation in the deen whatsoever.
So manager Allahu Allah has not made meaning Allah has not ordained he has not stipulated this in his law.
What does it mean that that people have fabricated all of this? What member here or any behavior meaning Allah has not stipulated in his law? That there is something such as over here?
Over here basically, the eye refers to some of the polytheistic and superstitious practices of the Arabs of Jay Hillier.
And yes, such practices were common at that time. However, similar practices are also found in other areas. So anything that is not a part of the deen that doesn't have any basis in the deen and it's based on pure polytheistic and superstitious beliefs. What does that mean? It doesn't have anything to do with the religion of Allah.
So the Arabs, they had made this particular type of animal miani they would call it by hero. What is a hero? It is said that there are at least 10 different sayings with regards to which animal in particular is the hero.
But hero is from the roof letters bed huddle, and that literally means to slept. What does it mean to slit? So the hell literally means to slit. So behera ends with a thermal Buddha and it refers to an animal whose ears have been slipped the animal whose ears have been slipped meaning there is a cut it he said but how to Laredo, meaning I slit the ears of the camel. What does it mean? I slit the ears of the camel. So basically what he refers to a split eared camel whose ears have been slit. Why do market as an animal that has been devoted to who? The gods.
So basically, the ears were slipped to mark the animal as a sacred animal as an animal that has been devoted to Gods.
And because of this reason, the animal would not be used. Nobody would read it. Nobody would milk it. Nobody would dare slaughter it. And whatever the animal wish to do, it was allowed to do if it came into somebody's house, you're not allowed to harm it in any way whatsoever.
Now when would they make an animal Eva hero. So basically when did an animal earned the title of a hill
It is said that the hero basically an 11th female calf and 11th female calf that is born to a she camel
Okay, and 11th female calf that is born to a Sheikh Al after the sheikh and will give birth to 10 female calves consecutively consecutively without the intervention of a male calf. So basically you can say the 11th daughter,
okay. It'll make it easy for you to understand. So the female calf, whose number is 11 and she's the 11th daughter so there were no sons in the middle, all females, so the 11th calf would be made what other hair off okay.
And when it was made up a hero, the IRS would be slit. She was not to be used for riding or carrying any load Her hair was not to be trimmed her milk was not to be
Wrong, etc, etc.
Well, I saw a button. And also Pandora has not even legislated any cyber.
What does that even
say? It's from the roof letter Sr cerveja, Cebu, which literally means to wander aimlessly.
What does it mean? To wander about aimlessly? So basically say Ava, is an animal that has been set free, an animal that has been set free, it can go wherever it wants, it can do whatever it wants. So basically, it's a cheek animal that has been set free.
Who is the cyber?
When would an animal get the title of a cyber?
Basically, cyber is the hero,
what is the hero?
The 11th calf,
okay. So the mother who gave birth to 11 female calves, consecutively, the 11th of which has been set free for gods. So the mother of the camels was who the cyber So basically when she gave birth to 11 female calves that said she was at free she was considered to be very early and she was let loose for free pasture for the idle that nothing was allowed to be carried on it.
While I was lifting mostly knives from the roof as well solid lamb and was what I means to join. What does it mean to join? So basically, what's Lila was used for a she goat or an EU or a she camel that gave birth consecutively to 10 females in five conceptions, to understand 10 females in five conceptions or for females in two conceptions.
You might be wondering, what's the deal with the females?
If you have a female camel, then what does it mean you will have more camels
so as she camel is more precious, it's more precious.
So basically was Lila is the she camel or the goat or the sheep whatever that gave birth to 10 females in five conceptions so basically gave birth to twins
or for females in two conceptions.
What a Hammond nor any ham. What does a ham refer to?
ham is basically the bull or the camel that fathers den female calves. Okay.
So ham is the male camel that fathers den female calves consecutively, that father's 10 female calves consecutively.
So over here loss parents Allah says that he has not declared any of these things. No behera No, sorry. But no was Lila no harm. Then where did these come from? What I can let you know careful. But it's the disbelievers who have their own area like it but they're fabricating lies against Alma work through one layer. And most of them don't use reason because of the use reason, then they wouldn't do this to the animals.
It is reported in say Buhari from Sarah ignacia, who said, as I mentioned you There are several opinions as to which animals in particular these are. So he said that the behera is that camel whose milk is consecrated to the idols and whom no human may milk
the sativa is the one they would leave to roam freely for their gods and was forbidden to bear any load.
There were sila is the young sheep camel, that would give birth to a young female as its first offspring. So there is a difference. I mean, it's possible that they considered several different types to be the vasila.
So there was either is the young sheep camel that would give birth to a young female as its first offspring, followed by another female burying one after the other without a meal in between. She would then be left to roam freely for their idols. And the ham is a mature male camel, which after completing a certain number of populations with a female would then be consigned to their idols and be exempt from burying any load, and they would call it harm.
So basically, we see that when they had done this, first of all, this was a complete fabrication.
Secondly, this had to do with idolatry, that these animals had been dedicated to false gods to idols.
And thirdly, this was making life difficult for yourself. Imagine if some animals are there, and you're not allowed to touch them, you're not allowed to harm them. And whatever they're doing, you're not allowed to stop them either. Now, this dunya Allah subhanaw taala has made for human beings was Sahara la cometa of the jamir on any a subjugated everything else for who for you. We are not to serve the animals. The animals are to serve
So what do we learn from this ayah? First of all, we learn that if a person does not have knowledge about something, then he should not assume it. And he should not hasten to pass judgments concerning it.
The machine of Makkah, they had no idea that there was nothing such as this in the religion of Allah, they had assumed this, that Oh, look at this animal, it's so precious to us, therefore, it should be dedicated to the gods. So if you don't know about the reality of something, don't just assume it. Don't just assume it.
And do not hasten to pass a judgement about it, that it is halal, or it is huddled.
Many times when it comes to heroin, heroin, we know about something for sure. And we say, okay, it's hella, and we know that it's Haram. So we say it's Haram. But there are some things about which we're not 100%. Sure. And if somebody asks us, immediately we give a response. No, this is how long or Yes, this is how long and later on, we find out that what we said was actually incorrect.
Or we see that it's possible that it is incorrect.
So if you don't know about something, and somebody asks, you tell them I don't know. I'm sorry, I'll have to check. I have no idea. Tell them. And we learned that Mr. Malik, a group of people came to him, and they stayed with him for 15 days. And they asked him several questions. And every time they asked him a question you would say,
I don't know.
And a person might say, Oh, they have come all the way and they're staying here. And they're asking me so I should say something at least know this religion of Allah subhanaw taala, who is a law maker of it? Allah subhanho data only, and we are no one to make something lawful or to declare something as unlawful. We learned earlier led to have remotely Batman handlebar hula,
whether it is the medium covering, or it is the heading of in chat or it is in theater, we are known to pass judgments. If we know something, take it if we don't know something, remain quiet.
Another very important lesson that we learned from this ayah is that everything that is declared Hana or How long must have it's evidence from the Quran and Sunnah.
If somebody says that this is Hillel, it must have an evidence from the Quran and Sunnah. If somebody says that something is wrong, there must be some evidence for it from the Quran and Sunnah.
We also learn from this ayah that a person who holds on to his opinion, even though the Quran and Sunnah go against it, then he has a resemblance to who, to the golfer
that the wish the keen were the ones who were doing this, that there was nothing such as this in the Quran and Sunnah. They had made this up, a loss of Hangtown said there is nothing like this, but still they held on to their false beliefs.
So if a person is of an opinion, and he finds out that the Quran says something different, or the similar says something different than what should he do,
he should change himself. He should change himself instead of rejecting the Quran and Sunnah.
And we see that this kind of practice is also found in some of our Muslims,
that for instance, an animal is dedicated for the saint or let's say it is slaughtered for the sake of a saint or for the sake of a person who was very righteous and he died. And sometimes you will find such animals roaming around the shrines are righteous people. So this is also similar to the practice of who the mushrikeen
why either Pinilla whom, and when it is said to them. Diallo in an answer, Allahu wa ala rasulillah. Come to what Allah has revealed and to the messenger, meaning come to the Quran, come to the Sunnah.
Notice it has been said that Allah Allah, first of all man under Allah who and secondly, we're universal. So come to the Quran and come to the Sunnah. So people who say oh, we only need to follow the Quran and if something is in the sunlight only so now you can leave it No. Over here what is being said, Come to the Quran and come to the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu sallam.
So when they're invited to the Quran, its teachings to the cam that are mentioned in the Quran. And do the commands of the prophets or the Lord is alone. What is the response?
Oh, no, they say has been a sufficient for us is my agenda now are they ever sufficient for us is that upon which we found our forefathers, meaning for us, their culture, their traditions, their practices are enough. We are very comfortable with the practices and traditions of our forefathers.
We are very comfortable with our culture. We don't need to come to the island.
See what the Quran has to say. We don't need to see what the prophet sort of ominous, Adam said, We are very happy with the culture that we have. We're very happy with the practices that we've always had
a lot of parents that have questions, our Locanda
even though their forefathers, meaning, will they still follow them, even though their forefathers layer them on a sheet and they knew nothing? When I don't know where they were? I think I did. Will they still follow them? in their forefathers don't know. And they're not rightly guided? Still, they will follow them? Why will they follow them, it doesn't suit a person who has intellect to follow someone just because of his relationship with them, even though the other person does not know about it.
Like, for example, younger people, for instance, when they learn about medicine, when they learn about science, when they learn about different things. And if their parents tell them something different, what do they do? Well, they listen to their parents. They want, why? Because we have learned something, which is based on evidence that eating something does not necessarily harm you. And they say no, no, don't eat this. For example, some people think that drinking milk after eating any kind of fish is going to give you what polka dots. Hook is what's on your body.
So therefore, they think that after any fish don't have milk, don't have milk with any kind of fish. However, you know, now, after studying that, it doesn't happen with every fish, it's only with a particular kind of fish. So just because your parents say that you are going to follow
or you maybe out of respect to that will be fine. But in your heart, you know that what they're saying is not correct, you're not going to be rude to them. You're not going to argue with them that Mom, you don't know what you're talking about. And that, you know, this is Canada. You're not going to say that. Well, sometimes you do, but it's not appropriate. It's not respectful at all.
So when it comes to the matters of dystonia, we are so careful that if we find out about something that is based on some research, some evidence, we will take it even if it goes against our forefathers.
But when it comes to religion, then we become so close minded, that we say yes, I know it's in the Quran. But this is something that my family will never accept.
This is something that my family will never tolerate. I know it's in the Quran. But this is something I cannot do. I will not do because it's not something that we do.
So this is exactly what is being mentioned over here. Then when these people are called to the Quran and Sunnah, they say sufficient for us, is the tradition of our families.
Allah subhanaw taala questions us that Are you still going to follow them? Even if they don't know? And even if they're not rightly guided, still going to follow them?
So what do we learn from this ayah? That, first of all, when it comes to the matters of the deen, when it comes to matters of Halloran, how long
then just as one's own opinion is not going to be followed. Similarly, the culture is also not going to be followed. What is going to be followed the Quran and Sunnah
the Quran and Sunnah that is going to be followed.
Secondly, we learn that when the tradition and culture of a person go against the deen, that is also a test.
That is also a test. Because a lot of times our dollars, they will wonder come surely he will definitely test it.
So in your family, in your tradition, in your culture, it's possible that something is considered Halloween, it's not actually Hello.
Everybody says it's her. And now after learning, you know that it's not Hello.
Or it's possible that something is considered how long? And you know that it's not how long it's actually Hello. So in that case, what should you think that this is also a test? That Am I going to give preference to the command of Allah? Or am I going to give preference to the culture of my people?
What is it that I'm going to give preference to?
This is also a test. We are tested in different different ways. Sometimes a sin is made very easy for us. Sometimes it's right before us. And sometimes it's in this situation where there's peer pressure, where there's pressure from family, from your own people from the people of your own house. Then in that case, what are you going to do?
Follow the Quran or follow their ways. You have to follow the Quran. Obviously, you have to use hikmah in the way that you speak with them you have to be gentle, you have to be respectful, you cannot be rude.
So basically we see that following the culture, listening to our forefathers is not something that is forbidden in the deen. However, it will not be done when what
They say contradicts the simple listening to them following their ways. It's not something that is forbidden. Culture is something that is good for people. It completes a person. People who don't have a strong culture we see that they don't know how to live properly. For example, people who are neither Eastern northern Western what happens there in the middle, they cannot speak either language they cannot dress up in in any of the ways properly. They don't know how to cook either Eastern food or Western food. They're lost. So culture is something that completes a person that refines a person. Remember, culture is not something that is bad in our Deen it is something that is of human
But you will not follow the culture when it goes against the Quran. And that is a bottom line.
merge all along.
statement has been ama which is an RA.
What does it reflect?
arrogance. I am fine the way I am. I don't need the Quran. I don't need you to tell me. I do whatever my parents do. I do whatever our family does. This is something that we don't do.
So it reflects pride, it reflects arrogance.
Then it was apparent that it says yeah, you are letting me know or you have believed Aleykum enforcer come upon you is responsibility for yourselves. You are responsible for your own self. You are responsible for preserving yourself
and doing that which is in your best interest. Why? Because at the end of the day, you will be accountable for yourself.
Laila, Rocco Mandela, those who have gone astray will not harm you. Either datum when you have been guided
those people who don't follow the Quran and Sunnah, those people who don't care about themselves, you are not responsible for them. As long as you are rightly guided, as long as you accept the Hidayat that comes your way. It ally Emma Jericho Jumeirah two allies, your return all together for you in a bukovina Quantum term alone, and then he will inform you of what you used to do.
what is being said in this ayah.
Primarily, what is being said in this ayah is that a person should be concerned about his Islam, about his reformation,
he should take good care of himself, how, by following the commands of the Sharia
by following the commands of Allah subhanaw taala, and staying away from the prohibitions,
whether other people observe those commands, or they don't.
Why, because at the end of the day, every person is responsible for himself. So if other people are going astray, you're not going to be held accountable for them when either they don't, when you yourself are doing what you're supposed to do. And at the end of the day, everybody is returning to Allah and Allah will inform us as to what we used to do, meaning he will give us recompense for our deeds.
So what is the main lesson in this ayah that first of all, a person should be worried and concerned about himself first,
a person should worry about his his law first, and then you should worry about others.
You know, when you go on the plane, and they give you all the instructions at the beginning, that in case of an emergency, help yourself first, and then help those people who are around you if there's a child sitting next to you, then help him why. Because if you haven't helped yourself first and you're trying to help the child, then it's possible that you're not even able to help the child nor are you able to help yourself, you lose yourself and you lose the child. So, first of all, it is our responsibility that we should look at ourselves. We should correct ourselves we should reform ourselves, because many times when we learn about the commands of Allah subhana wa Tada. Then we
Pointing fingers, oh, look at them, look at them, look at them. What do we learn? Worry about yourself, protect yourself, correct yourself, be greedy about your Islam, and then worry about others.
Secondly, we also learn from this ayah that a person should be worried and concerned about his salvation, about his success in the effort. Whether other people follow the deen or not, you are responsible for who? yourself
whether other people follow or not, whether other people oppose you or not, you are responsible for yourself. So you should conform to the law, the laws of parallel data, even if the whole society is going against it. What did we learn that by even hobbies are not the same, even if the abundance of hobbies impresses you?
So even if everybody's going astray, even if everybody's doing something wrong, what should you remember, I am responsible for myself, I have to answer a loss penalty.
And this is not an excuse that just because everybody's doing wrong, therefore I am doing wrong as well. No, a person should be greedy, a person should be concerned about his salvation, about his success.
We also learn from this idea about the obligation of holding on to the truth and observing it after coming to know about it.
That one can a person be responsible for himself when he knows about what to do and what not to do. So when you find out about the commands of Allah subhanaw taala, then what's the obligation upon us? that we have to observe them, we cannot neglect them, we cannot leave them Why? Because we will be questioned or Alaykum and full circle, you are responsible for yourself. So once you have come to know of something, make sure you do it.
Another very important lesson that we learn from this ayah is because some people actually go to an extreme they say oh, Allah subhanaw taala says Alico and Prosecco, therefore Don't worry about other people. Therefore, don't worry about other people. What is meant in this ayah is this ayah does not mean that a person should not be concerned about others, and he should only be concerned about himself. And he should not even tell other people because he should say, oh, they're responsible for themselves, it's not my responsibility. Know, what this means is that you convey the truth to others. When you find out about something, make sure you observe it, and make sure you tell other
people about it as well. However, if other people don't listen, if they don't accept, then you're not going to be held accountable for them.
liable for common Birla data? What does it mean? that once you have told them, and still, if they don't listen, then it's not your fault, you are not going to be held responsible, they will be held responsible for themselves.
Why? Because we're not and that was really the level the level moving. The duty of the messenger is only to convey, and what's the duty of the people that they have to accept? So if they don't accept whose fault, is it your fault or their fault? It's their fault.
As long as you are acting upon the truth,
Allah subhanaw taala says, and so to wrestle, when asked in an incentive that he has in the Medina, Arizona army to silence had what, uh, well, so we'll help with that as well.
So the lastly will help encouraging one another to the truth and encouraging one another to do so that is something that is an obligation upon us. So based on this ayah, we cannot say, I'm not responsible for other people, therefore, I'm not going to tell them, no, you are going to tell them. And after that, it's their responsibility. It's not your responsibility anymore.
Because sometimes, you know, when we learn about the commands of Allah subhanaw, taala, and there are other people who are not following them, what do we think? What do we think? We think that let them do it. It's their choice. That's what we do. Let them do it. It's their choice. But what is our obligation that we have to tell them? And if they don't listen, after you tell them, then it's their choice, then it's their choice. But it is our responsibility that we have to tell them as well. Whether the profits are afforded to them, say, a haka. walima, almost no matter whether your brother is doing gloom, or he is the one upon whom zalm is being done, Help Help him. How do you help the
xylem by stopping him from the zone by telling him not to do so.
So when you learn about something, and you see somebody going against it, it is your duty to tell them and if they don't listen after that, it's their choice. But if you see somebody doing something wrong, don't say, Oh, it's their choice. Have you done your job that you're saying it's their choice? What did we learn earlier? That Lauren and Medina cafaro Minh Bani Israel Isla de Sangeeta Woodbury 70 Malia why they're legally married.
So what can we do? Can you lay it on a homeowner on one cutting falou?
Can you lay it on a homeowner and one current falou so it is our duty to convey
If you notice repeatedly it has been mentioned towards the end of the surah that two allies you will return to ally you will all be gathered and then he will inform you what you're used to do. Because if a person has this, you clean in his head that I am not in this dunya forever,
then no hobbies will be impressive.
No hold on will be attractive. And no one was doing something wrong. Will you be able to tolerate them? When when you know that you're going back to Allah when you know that this dunya is not forever
