Al-Anam 40-59 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 40-43
I'm going to share James Miller have recommended for him
so number 80 sort of rolling around I am number 40 to 59
at home in Atacama either Bula he Oh at that como sir I do
a layer on law he that the owner in control side you can say oh prophets are along ready to sell them to the people of Mecca
that are at home Have you considered if they're came to you the punishment of Allah or they came to you that our meeting the Day of Judgment is it other than a law that you would invoke, if you should be truthful
Hamza overhears of stfm. And over here it is for interrogation basically for the argiope amazement
and Ada that are at the end means you and come at the end indicates plural, generally, that is you and come is you all. But over here, when we translated, we don't translate it as a taco, have you seen yourself. But what it means is, have you considered come over here is extra. It is a
and it doesn't have an Arab meaning it's neither a subject nor an object. It's only for the purpose of tokeep for emphasis.
So Colorado at home, have you considered at all? Have you ever thought about this? Have you ever reflected on this,
that in Atacama Idaho law, he, if the punishment of a law came upon you, which punishment, some punishment in the dunya
that you have been threatened with many, many times, or a punishment that was descended on the previous people, something like that.
If the punishment of Allah came upon you owe a debt commissar to, or the hour came upon you,
sir, literally is used for our or is basically an appointed part of time. But as a term, it refers to the Day of Judgment.
As a term, it refers to the Day of Judgment.
So or if the Day of Judgment came upon you suddenly, because they were warned about the Day of Judgment many, many times, it can come anytime.
So they're being told if it comes anytime, then what are you going to do?
Will you call upon other than Allah?
Meaning, are you going to leave all of your false gods? Are you going to leave all of your people who could come and help you? Is it somebody else? other than Allah, whom you're going to call upon? What are you going to call upon Allah? Only?
What's the answer? That No, you will not call upon other than Allah. But instead you will only call upon Allah soprano data because you know, that such a calamity, only a last panel that I can remove
Elena law, he could earn it in continuous auditing, if you're truthful, meaning if you're truthful in your claim that others besides Allah subhanaw taala can also help you or others besides Allah can alleviate the difficulty that you're in.
So if you're calling upon Allah in times of distress, then why don't you call upon him at good times, as well.
We know that the mushrikeen of Mecca, they were polytheistic. So in other words, they used to worship many gods, if they had a problem, they would go sacrifice for the sake of a particular idol. They would go serve that idle, they would go worship that idle, and expect help from that idle.
However, if they were in a very serious situation, and they knew that a lot had to be done, in order for them to be taken out of that difficulty, then they would not call upon their gods.
But instead they would call upon only a mosque.
And we see this even within those people who don't necessarily worship Allah, soprano, God has meaning who are not really that obedient.
But when they are in a very difficult situation, who do they pray to? Allah subhanaw taala. And what do they say that God if you really there helped me, and then I will believe in you.
And so many people that have become Muslim like this. I'm sure you've heard of many stories in which people were drowning or people were in a major accident or people were about to die. And they prayed that Oh God, if you're there, save me and I will believe in you.
And this even happened at the time of the Prophet sort of water
And I mentioned to you a story very soon
by the owner, rather, it is only him that you would invoke a Yahoo. What is a Yahoo mean? Only him and no other than him.
There is no one else when we would call upon.
You see, generally in a difficult situation, what do we do?
We call our parents, our siblings, our friends, somebody or the other who can help us. Maybe we'll go if it's an illness, then we will immediately rush to the hospital. But in a situation where we know nobody can help us, then who do we call upon
only a month,
a year whatever the owner, you only call upon him for actually for then he is the one who removes
the extra foot from cash. In fact, he is the one that removes matter the owner he lay that to which you are calling him to, meaning the problem that you're suffering with, and you're calling him do to alleviate that from you. He is the one who takes it off from you.
inshallah, if you will, meaning he doesn't always rule the problem for you, it's up to him. Whenever he wants, he would remove that difficulty from you.
What then Sona, and you forget, matter shikun. Whatever you associate, meaning all other gods whom you worship besides Allah, you forget about them.
Then Sona from moon senior mission, and mission is to forget something.
And over here, then Sona gives a sense of that you forget to call upon them. Why? Because of the difficult situation that you're in?
Why do you forget to call upon them because of the difficult situation that you're in?
So for example, sometimes even with us, what happens if we're in a very difficult situation?
We forget to call people we forget to call our parents we forget to call our family or friends. And later on, they asked us, why didn't you tell me immediately? Why didn't you tell me right away? What do we say? I was so overcome by fear. I was panicking so much that I didn't even realize, I couldn't even think of calling anybody.
So 10 seven, and literally you forget why, because of being overcome by fear because of being overcome by the calamity that you're in.
And secondly, then Sona gives a sense of that you neglect you leave, who matters shikun all whom you associate with Allah, meaning you don't care about them, and you don't call upon them.
We learn from the zero victim or even evija Who was he?
The son of a Buddha.
And his father, a Buddha was, Who
was he? He was a disbeliever. He was a Muslim, but he was one of the fiercest opponents of the Prophet sallallaahu Salah. And because of that, also, his son followed his footsteps.
And we learned that at the conquest of Makkah,
he killed one man with his arrow.
And because of that he was to be killed.
Because he had committed murder. He wasn't a Muslim. So he fled from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam after the conquest of Makkah. He said, Forget about it, I'm just going to leave Makkah. They have come here, I'm going to leave.
And he had it for Ethiopia. He said out across the sea to go to Ethiopia, but a stormy wind arose.
Just imagine you're in the middle of the sea. And there's a storm.
And some people started calling upon land or the meaning their gods. And the people said to one another, none can save you except Allah alone.
You're in such a situation that these gods need your worship, even they cannot help you.
Sir, it came on set to himself by Allah. If none can benefit on the sea, except Allah, then no doubt, none can benefit on land except Allah.
Meaning if we're in the middle of the sea, and we know that no one can save us except Allah. And we're calling upon him only then that means even when we're on land, and we're in a difficult situation, only a loss of power, that is one who can save us. So he said this to himself. And he said, Oh Allah, I promise you, if you bring me safely out of this, I will go and put my hand in the hand of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and surely I will find him full of pity, kindness and mercy meaning I will become a believer and I will give birth to him.
They came out of it safely and were delivered from the sea, and then went to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam and declared his Islam and then he became a good Muslim. We have those plans are to be pleased with him.
We learned that after he became Muslim, he struggled so hard in order to make up for the harm that he had caused the Muslims while he was a disbeliever.
So he made up for the wrongs that he had done.
So what do we learn from these?
First of all, we learned that if, at the time of distress, if at the time of extreme difficulty, we only remember to call upon Allah subhanaw taala, then at other times as well, we should call upon him only.
At other times as well, we should call upon him.
And for unfortunately, we only make the right to Allah subhanaw taala when we are in a difficult situation,
when everything is fine, everything is normal. We're okay we don't bother to pray. But when we are in a difficult situation, then it is that we've been down and underneath, and we raise our hands in prayer. However, this should be the attitude, the behavior of the believer throughout his life, whether he's in a difficult situation, or in ease and comfort.
And if we call upon a loss of panatela, in times of extreme distress, then we should also call upon him in every situation, not others.
Secondly, a very important lesson that we learned from this is that Allah subhanaw taala responds to the man
who is the one who is afflicted and the one who is very sad.
Even if the thought, even if he is a catfish,
even if he is a disbeliever. What's the evidence for that?
The stories are clear, I've been down and these is as well, because the addresses to the machine
that you call upon him when you are an extremely difficult situation. And he is the one who removes the difficulty from you, if you will.
What is it show?
That Allah responds to the call of the matter even if he is a catfish? Why? Because cutterbar infc
His mercy precedes his anger and he has made mercy mandatory on himself.
So never think never ever think that a loss of penalty will not listen to my daughter.
If he can listen to the door of the disbeliever then why will you not listen to your daughter?
If a Lockwood answer clemenza he can also answer yours. It depends on your European
and we learn in too little bacala in Sri Lanka a bad year I need for any economy. would you bother with a dairy either dying whenever he calls me? So what is it that we have to do failure study believe when you mean you will be be confident when you're making
one or the other center in our Oh, my main publica. And we have already sent messengers donations before you
before Who? before Muhammad salatu salam.
And who did we send our son,
our son who
we sent to messengers as well as messages.
Because to every nation yes messengers or rather Warner's were sent.
But sometimes the message of the messenger was taken to other people as well to whom that messenger did not directly go to, for example, Mohammed Salah suddenly was in Mecca, and then he went to Medina.
Did he live in a pie? No. Did he live in other areas? No. But the message was sent to every woman meaning all the people
so all of a sudden a woman women publica for 100 now whom bill but said even
so we sees them with hardship as well as affliction, suffering. But sad is love letters by hams are seen and But sir, we have done the meaning before. It refers to extreme poverty, physical hurt and physical pain, physical hardship.
And it doesn't necessarily mean that a person is suffering from a loss. But it is when a person is suffering from a hardship
what the raw as well as affliction. What does the Lord refer to
everything that a person suffers from in his knifes in his body, in his well
in his heart, whether it is tangible or intangible.
So it is mental pain. It is emotional pain. It is hard times so we see is them with betsa and with the law
now what does it mean by this that we sent them the messenger and immediately we seize the people with sir Mr. La. No further have now home. It doesn't mean right away immediately. But what it means is that when the message
Center was sent to the people, and they denied they opposed. So instead of immediately destroying the people, what did we do? We sent hard times on them.
We made them go through difficulties. We made them suffer, why not under whom yet above our own, so that they become humble before who, before our last panel data, and as a result of which they would believe.
And we see that, for instance, at the time of musasa.
Hero, he denied. The miracles were shown to me things were shown to him, but he denied persistently.
But what happened
immediately for their own and his people were not destroyed, several punishments were sent upon them,
meaning minor punishments were sent upon them. They went through famine, extreme hunger, poverty dependence.
Similarly, they also suffered from an increase in the population of locusts and frogs, which obviously caused them a lot of trouble. So why was all of that so that they would turn to a loss of penicillin, each time they suffered from a problem, they will go up to musasa. And they will say, you pray to your larger remove this from us. If he removes it, then we will become believers. There are no home yet.
But each time the difficulty was removed, they will go back to their ways. So the reason behind sending the set ambala is before the final punishment that people become humble before Allah.
Now, what's the meaning of the word? Yes,
you have a lot of erroneous 100 letters, blah, blah, blah.
And the love is to show humility. It is to show one's helplessness. It is to express one's helplessness before someone Why
did that help to gain their pity.
And it is to show humility to short reads, who do or who show humility. And basically, it is when a person very quietly and privately he cries before someone in order to get their help.
In order to get their help. I for example, if a person is going through a lot of difficulty, what happens, they come to you, they shut the door, they start talking to you very quietly.
And as they're talking, sometimes they start crying.
They become very emotional. And they show their weakness. Why so that you have mercy upon them and you can help them in some way or the other. This is what the bubbler is better than ever before Allah subhanaw taala is that a person shows his his humility. He quietly and privately cries before Allah and prays to him for help, and shows his weakness before him that Oh Allah, I have nothing left. I don't know what to do. I can't even help myself. I don't even know what's good for me.
You know what state I'm in. This is what worries
that when a person realizes that he cannot do anything to help himself anymore, he needs the help of someone else. So he gives up and he goes to the one who can help him and he shows his weakness before him.
And sometimes it takes a lot to break the ego of a person that he has thought over. Because many times people are going through a lot of difficulty, but what do they say? Everything is fine. It's okay. I can deal with it myself.
But the lover is that they have been completely broken down. They have been crushed. And they have been made to realize that you cannot protect yourself, you cannot help yourself, you need someone else. And you don't just need anyone you need the help of en la
la la homea. com. So we made them go through But sir, and the raw so that they would become humble before.
Remember the total and
it was revealed one year before that.
It was revealed towards the end of the McCue period. And it's one of the last words to be revealed.
Therefore, in this war is severe warning for the people of Mecca.
Because up until now, since 12 years, there had been a lot that had been taught to them, but still they weren't changing their ways. So this was like a final warning that throughout the certain years, you have also gone through difficulty.
For example, even the people of Makati suffered from famine, they suffered from loss of food and hunger, loss of lives as well. So that was to wake them up. And now is a clear warning that if you don't wake up now, if you don't change your ways now, the consequences are going to be very serious. So what do we learn from this is that the Sonoma
Muscle penalty. The way the loss panda is that he at first sends messengers. He sends Warners to the people. Why? In order to warn them? In order to teach them? What is right what is wrong, what should be done, what should be left.
If they believe
what happens, everything's fine.
In fact, Allah subhanaw taala increases them
in there that is,
and if the people don't believe, and they don't change their ways, then what happens? minor calamities are sent upon them. Minor calamities minor difficulties are sent upon them, which are both physical as well as mental, emotional, economical, Why? So that they turn to Allah, they realize that they need Allah.
Because when a person is constantly enjoying his life, everything is fine. Then what happens he doesn't realize that he needs a VA, isn't it? So
when everything's fine, we don't even bother to make the law.
But as soon as we're suffering from a headache, from a sickness from some pain, from some problem, then immediately we think about turning to a loss
and this is at the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that he gives a person respect and periodically sends small trials his way so that a person wakes up and he turns to a loss of parameter.
So we learn from this is about
the main lessons First of all, that a lot of Panasonic establishes argument against the people how by sending messengers to them, so that people cannot see on the day of judgment or law we did not know.
Allah sends messengers, so that people know what is right what is wrong. Without insulting Lisa I 165 will also learn over shereena woman Xena, li la akuna Nasir de la her jetten bar the Russo what can Allahu I season hekima we sent messengers as Bringers of good news, as well as Warner's so that mankind will have no argument against Allah, after the messengers, that after the messengers have been sent, people cannot say that they have Allah Subhana Allah we did not know
what our center in our own memory.
Secondly, we also learned from this idea about the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala towards his creation,
that he sent messengers so that people know what the truth is.
Think about it. If the prophets are allowed a certain had not been sent? Would we know the Quran?
Would we know? How to pray? How to do the
how to eat properly, how to dress up properly? We wouldn't know.
So isn't this of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that he sent messengers to guide people? Because of the messengers that have been sent people would not know what to do.
Just think about it. Your life before you knew about the deen and your life now?
Isn't it completely different? Isn't it so much better?
Okay, maybe you're not financially maybe not materially, but spiritually, emotionally, mentally. Just imagine if Allah subhanaw taala had not sent messengers.
So in sending the messenger, there is a great mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. We also learn from this ayah that Allah subhanaw taala tests people through WhatsApp and the law, through what? adversity through hardship through affliction, poverty, mental pain, emotional pain, problems within family. Why?
to torture people to harm people know, what's the wisdom behind it? What's the wisdom behind it?
So that they turn to
so that they remember to thank Allah. They remember to seek refuge from Allah. They remember to seek his help. So Allah subhanaw taala does not send difficulty our way in order to torture us in order to inflict harm on us. No, it is so that we turn to him.
Because many times people say, why is this happening to me? This is not fair. This is not fair. And people object. They say a lot of current artists have Rihanna and he wears his mercy. How come I'm not being shown any mercy.
This is his mercy, that he sending problems your way so that you turn to him.
We also learned in this ayah that before Allah subhanaw taala sends a big punishment or a final punishment. He sends small calamities minor calamity so that people wake up from the state of powerlessness and repent to him.
And this is also at the mercy of Allah.
We also learned from this ayah that
The calamities that befall a person are sometimes because of what
because of his own sins,
because of the wrong that he has been committed,
when the loss of Paradise and the difficulty for a person, there are several reasons, many, many reasons of the measure that a person may have the opportunity to do something, so that he can be raised intelligent like for example, the profits
and add them is because the person has done something wrong. And when he suffers that difficulty, and he will do suffer, as a result of that, that sin will be removed, meaning he will not be held accountable for it.
And other reasons is that a person becomes humble.
So, over here, what do we learn that sometimes the calamities come in a person's way, because of the wrongs that he has committed?
We also learn from desire but the obligation of the Lord towards Allah, the obligation of showing humility the foremost penalty
because the lover is so important that Allah soprano data will send But sir and the law a person's way so that he shows that
that's the reason.
So when we're going through difficulty instead of complaining instead of whining, instead of being very frustrated, what is required of us that we show humility before
we break down, we break our ego and we humble ourselves before him.
