Al-Anam 74-92 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 78-79
From so he tried another thing. fellow man or ashram said then when he saw the sun and the sun was busy when the sun was rising, When was this? early in the morning? He said, Allah, he said, this is Myra. Why? Because Heather a couple This is greater. This is much bigger than what than the star and then this is much bigger. This is my this is what I'm going to worship.
Thank you notice a shrimps. The word that has been used for it is bezzie, a thin white because chumps is oneness. But then has that has been used? And how that is? Wilcox shouldn't have he be used? Why is that been used? several reasons I've been given. First of all, is that to show magnitude, to show magnitude because generally, what do people think that even it's true, that male is stronger than the female?
Secondly, the set that what it means by Heather is the light of the sun, the radiance of the Sun and the sun itself. Because when you see the sun rising, many times you can't actually see the sun, you can't really see the disk. What do you see? Just the brightness, just the glow. So what he means by Heather is the glow and glow of the Sun is much bigger, is more vast compared to that of the moon, isn't it? The moon is is bright in itself, but the sun it's spreading brightness everywhere. So he's saying how there will be this as my Lord.
And others say that, that key meaning making this masculine is permissible, because the word Trumps it doesn't really have any sign of feminine. Although it is more or less Samari. However, it is not PSE or oneness that is hardly
sakala hedorah visa This is my Lord. Why because Heather Aqua, this is much greater. Look at its brightness, look at its size, look at its effect. It's much greater than the star and the moon. But then follow me.
But then when even that set, when the night came, and the sun even disappeared, is that foil is that? Yeah, tell me oh my people, anybody alma mater, Chico, I am innocent. I am free from whatever that you associate with.
Meaning I don't have anything to do with your ship. I'm not going to worship the star, or the moon or the sun. I have nothing to do with this. I am only going to worship Allah.
I'm only going to worship Allah subhanaw taala.
Now, as I mentioned to you earlier that in this story, all of this that is mentioned over here, what is it, Brahim Ellison, I'm proving to his people. He is proving claims people what, though hate
how? By showing to them that if the star is not permanent, if the moon is not permanent, if the sun is not permanent, how can you worship any of them? I'm not going to worship them. And you should also not worship them.
Some people have misunderstood these ayah.
And they have said that when he said Heather be, he literally meant that. And they say that this was in his childhood, when he was a child, when he was very young. He said this to his people, because he saw everybody is worshiping something or the other. So he said, Okay, I'm going to worship this. Somebody who's worshiping the mountain, somebody who's worshiping that star or somebody who's worshiping the cloud. So okay, I'm going to worship the star.
And he went through the stage, that when he saw the sun, when he saw the star disappear, he said, I'm not going to worship that in some way to worship the moon. But even that when it disappeared, he said, I'm going to worship the sun. Eventually, he said, that's it. I'm sick of this. I can't change my gods. Every other day. I'm only going to worship
the Creator, Allah soprano died.
However, this is incorrect. Why? Because the prophets, even before receiving Prophethood, didn't really check. They never did check.
And when he's saying Heather ob, he is only demonstrating this to the people.
Like for example, when a person is acting, when a person is acting, do they actually become the mother of so and so?
If they're playing the role of a man, do they become that man, people may call them afterwards just to tease them. However, they don't actually become that person. They don't really mean those statements. They're only demonstrating they're only showing. So this is exactly what he was doing. He was demonstrating them he was showing to them to prove a point to them. So when he said hey, Robbie, this is what it meant.
What do we learn from these ions? First of all we learned from this is that of the most effective way of doing that is by asking people questions,
to arouse their curiosity to make them interested
Because some have said that what he meant by Heather, Robbie is a header A B is this Milord? That the statement has to be? What it means is a header of B. So is this fine art? Huh? Is that what you say? That this is who I should worship? I don't like it, it went away. So one of the most effective ways of doing Dawa is asking questions, arouse the other person's curiosity, make them interested. Because if you don't have them interested, no matter what you say to them, it's not going to affect them. You have to make them interested. When you have to tell your siblings or your children or your friends about something interesting from the Quran, what are you gonna say, you know what I learned
today, it really scared me. Or you know, what I learned today, it reminded me of you. Or it reminded me of such and such incident, not something bad, something good. So when you tell them in this way, then they're more interested in listening to you.
And if you don't make them interested, the moment you will start speaking, they will tune out completely.
We also learn from these is that if a person is given the power and he tries one thing and it doesn't work, what should you do?
You try something else. If that doesn't work, you try something else.
Ibrahim is he used the star, it didn't work. He used the moon didn't work, he used the sun. So change your technique, change your style, try different things. Don't just think that your way is the only way is the most perfectly try.
Then we also learn over here that you should build up the argument in stages,
you should build up the argument in stages,
that, first of all, he showed the SAR very small, that I don't like those who disappear. And then you use the moon that was bigger than the star and then you use the sun that was bigger than the moon.
So from the star to the moon, none meet the requirements of God, then what is he doing? He's building up the argument that nothing else is also worthy of worship, except the one who created except the Creator. If the star that is so small, and the sun that is so big, none of them deserve worship, then who deserves worship Allah, the creator. So build up the argument in stages, give it in small dosages. Because if you give it all at once, then what's going to happen? People are going to rebel, they're not going to accept it.
We also learn from these is about the importance of reflecting on various creatures of
not just the stars, but also the moon of the sun.
Sometimes we only reflect on big things, and we ignore little things. We will reflect on for instance, the mountains and the sun and the earth as a whole. But we don't look at our hands. We don't look at tiny ants, we don't look at the house that we're living in the food that we're eating the food that is on our plate. So we should reflect on various creatures of Allah subhanaw taala. Because in everything, there is something to learn.
We also learned from these ayat about the importance of reflecting for a long time, because he saw the star at night. And then he saw the star setting as well.
He saw the moon. And he saw the moon setting as well. He saw the sun, and he saw the sun going away as well. What does it show? He's only once and that was it finished? What does it mean?
That when we reflect on something, take some time don't reflect for two seconds also panela. Well move on to the next thing. No, you spend some time, spend some time, look at it for a long time. Because it's possible that you learn one thing at a particular time and another lesson at another moment.
Reflecting on the flower on its initial stages, you learn other lessons. And when you reflect on when it's a blooming full flower, you learn other lessons. So don't just reflect at one point reflect at several points for a long time.
We also learn from these is that true God. The one who is worthy of worship is one who is permanent, who is unaffected by the passage of time, he's always there. He's unchanged, as he is most perfect, he is not absent, whether he is present, he is aware. And on the other hand, the stars, the moon, the sun, all other beings that are worshipped besides Allah, all of them are temporary.
We also don't want these if that Holic no fluke, the creator and the created, they're different. They're different.
So that is said that the people asked him that if you don't worship this, then what do you worship? So he replied in me with Jeff. Indeed. I have turned my face to the
Let's move towards the one who Fatah semi wet You are the one who created the heavens and the earth hanifin as in trying to work through women and eminent mushrikeen and I am not of those who associate others with Allah. So he declared this to the people, that what just what just to from Well, Jim, what does What do you mean? face and what Jeff is to direct one's face to direct one's attention to aim at the set one's face. So I have faced I have turned to who the one who fought or similar to the one who didn't just create the heavens and the earth, but he's the one who originated them. He is the one who originated them. And he made them in a way that was unknown before
because Fatah is to originate to bring into being for the first time, nothing like it nothing similar to it existed before.
So he is one who follows me what he will offer. And when I have faced when I have turned my direction towards him, I am Hanif I am focused on him, who is
one who is focused on his goal, unswerving? He's not distracted. He's not distracted. That, oh, that person just left. And that person just went there. And who was that? And why did they go? No. They're focused on their goal. They're focused on their work. And if unswerving, woman, I mean a machine and I am not of those who do shake. I am of those people who worship of love alone.
What do we learn from this ayah? First of all, the importance of being focused.
Because of Ronnie Bredesen, in the word jack,
what does it include?
All of your senses, your face, your eyes, your ears, your mouth, your mind,
and everything that goes inside your heart. So I have directed my face, meaning everything I am focused on who? Allah subhanaw taala. So what do we learn from this, or the importance of being focused, that when you're doing something become completely focused on it, don't even think about other things. Don't even look at other things. Don't even touch other things.
Because if you do, what's going to happen, you won't be able to do your work properly. This is why insular culture is so important. The major part of solid they don't even think about other things. only focus on a loss of penalty. And to help us do that. What are we doing, only look at the place of such the
focus on the words of Salah. Because if you look here and there, then what's going to happen, you're going to lose your focus. If you're thinking about other things, you're going to lose your focus.
So first of all, we learned about the importance of being focused. And this is something that helps a person in everything that he does.
If a person is researching a particular topic, and he goes online, and he starts researching, and or he goes into that link, and then that link, and then that website, an hour has gone. And what he started to do is still not over.
When you're doing research for a particular purpose, you have to stay very focused, if you don't stay focused, you're going to waste many hours. A lot of precious time.
Similarly, when a person is driving, if you're not focused on your destination, what are you going to do? But where is that car going?
Like this friend of mine, once she was learning how to drive, and there was a dog on the street, and it turned on to the left, and she was looking at the dog. And she didn't even realize she turned left. Because she was just staring at the dog. He was so cute. So she just wanted to follow the dog. Where's the dog going? You're not supposed to go there. So if a person is not focused on the road on the destination, then what is he going to do? Let me go on the street. And let me go there. Let me stop by here. Let me see what's inside. Let me see where this car is going. He's not going to get to his destination, and he's going to end up wasting a lot of time.
When you're going for groceries, if you don't take a list with you, that I have to buy this, this this, then what happens you end up buying extra things, extra food that you don't need, that you're not going to be able to cook, but just because it looks so good. Let me just take it just because there's a good deal. Let me just think, No, stay focused.
And unfortunately, today, we are so distracted. We are so distracted by our computers and our cell phones and our reminders and all of these things that are in our world because of which we cannot focus on anything. When anything at all. You know, it's amazing. Sometimes I see some people are sitting in class and all of a sudden they will check their phone. Like really, you can't even do without your phone for two hours for two and a half hours.
And even if you look at your phone, what's gonna happen, what's the big deal? Will you be able to take a call? No, you can't. And if you do, so that's not correct.
So we're so distracted that
We can't even focus on something for some time, because of which we don't even accomplish much. We don't even accomplish much.
Children, they can't sit for more than half an hour.
Even us, we can sit and do our lesson seven times. Why? Because we're so distracted that happened. And this happened. And that person called and I just want to check my email and that I slept. We're so distracted. Because of what you were not able to accomplish anything. If there's a tree, if there's a plant, you put it in a flowerpot. And after some time, like let me just move it. And you take it out of the pot, and you put it in another part and you keep transferring it from one part to the other, is it going to be able to grow? No.
Similarly, if we don't stay focused, then we cannot grow. We cannot achieve. We cannot be successful. Ibrahim Hassan was Hanif and we learned this so many times. Because of that he was able to achieve
because of that he was successful, that no matter what came his way, he didn't care about it. He didn't.
I was thinking about how sometimes when people give dour, they're not very focused. And like I know, in my circle of friends, we have this thing called the Wikipedia people. When they talk, it seems like they click on every single link. So it's like you come to something and they Oh, I think wanted to talk about this now. And then you go to something else. I've talked about this, and you forget what they were originally talking about. And I think that's the problem that like, I know, I have that problem when I try to give people data because I just click on every single thing. And then I forget, but I think about it later on. I should have said this. And that was my point. Well, why did
I say my point?
And sometimes we're talking as well, in a normal conversations, like you said, You we click on everything. And we forget as to why we were talking to that person about something. What was the objective? What was the main point we forget about that?
So we learned about the importance of being focused. And this is something that is relevant with regards to small things, as well as big things, very minor tasks, as well as major tasks. Something that is to do with the dounia something that has to do with the dean, when you're cooking to when you're cleaning to when you're working, anything that you're doing. If you're not focused, you cannot achieve, you cannot be successful. You cannot have subs.
Remember that you cannot have sub. When you focus, you get sober yourself.
When you've set your target, I cannot move from here until I have done my lesson, for instance.
Then even if you're hungry, and you're thirsty, and you want to see who came and you want to see who left, and you want to see if somebody posted something online, you're not going to do that. And this is what's going to build subs.
And if you're distracted by every little thing, then you cannot have subs.
So, when a person is focused, then he can develop sub then he can develop his karma, then he can develop some big heartedness because otherwise every little thing breaks him.
We also learn from this I about the importance of being focused on a law
and what does that mean? Having a floss?
that whatever a person does, he does it only for the sake of a loss of friends.
And when a person is like that, and nothing shakes him, nothing weakens him. No us wasa makes him doubtful. No threat scares him. No criticism makes him double minded. Nothing affects him because he's focused on our last panel data. His goal is a pleasure of Allah.
We also learn from this is that true God is the one who is the creator.
Because he said I have directed my case to the one who
is the one who deserves worship.
If there's any other person any other being that has been worshipped. Did he create everything? No.
Okay, you may claim that he created some things But did he create everything? No.
Allah subhanaw taala is the father of similar to what
we learn from the poor and the inner backroom along with lady had a customer where they will offer free security a yen semester and Yoshi Leyland now. yalu has he said was shumsa will come on when nujoma masa harati Emily lll Hulk Well,
me that indeed your Lord is Allah who created the heavens and the earth in how long in six days. And then he rose over the throne. He brings the night as a cover over the days of seeking it rapidly and he created the sun, the moon, the stars, subjecting them to his command, surely is is the creation and commandment. Bless It is Allah The Lord of all that exists.
Then the alternative and this is a very important lesson about the important
disassociating oneself from those who do shake this associating oneself from those who shed? Because what does he say? What am I gonna mean with shaking, I am not of those little shake in the previous if we learn that anybody will matter.
Because even if a person belongs to that society, even if a person belongs to such a family, even if he lives in such a place, he must disassociate himself. Because a lot, oh, Ma, men have been under their judgment a person will be with who, those whom he loves. So it's possible that you're living in the same house, but you don't agree with them.
You don't and you don't do what they're doing. You don't cooperate with them in their wrongdoing. And if you cooperate with them, or if you agree with them, then that is not better.
We learn about the importance of this associating oneself.
And remember that this is something that's not easy. It's not simple.
Because this was Ibrahim Ernestina, one person, against
the entire society.
And as I mentioned to you, it said that it was about 250,000 people.
We have to go just against five people. And we didn't get a big deal. He went against the entire nation. Why? Because of my Rob wants it. If my Rob wants me to do it, I don't care what people have to say.
Okay, well listen to the recitation. Everybody stand up.
Bow Oh, me.
want to watch a movie,
So I come
about focusing and staying focused on what thing you're supposed to do. Sometimes I find myself like, you know, you burden yourself with so much, okay, I'm going to do this, let me do that I'm going to read, I don't want to memorize this much in this week, or I'm going to do this certain amount of chores in one night, and then you've like, you've learned so much, and then you end up really doing nothing, because you spent all that time you're like, writing down what you're gonna do. So
I learned like I should do everything one step at a time. And then when you finish that, then go to the next. Some people, they're good at multitasking. And other people they're not. So if you see that you're not good at multitasking, then just focus on what you're supposed to be doing. And it's always better to focus on one thing at a time, because it speeds up the process as well. Because if you give exclusive time to one task, then you will be able to do it quickly. And if you're juggling between two or three at the same time, you will take longer. So you're checking your phone every five minutes every 10 minutes, you're going to take longer.
Someone I come up with a lot. It's not that I didn't know this, but I noticed better today that I absolutely don't know anything. I read this somewhere a long time ago by somebody that the more he knows he finds out that he doesn't know. And I was like okay, really, but it's true. When you stand before Lord, power of His words, he really know that he learned
The lifetime has been wasted. Seriously, do not think about things that are serious.
I'm not just talking about things that make it easier for us to offer. But things that make life easier to get to
the system that is set up by Allah subhanaw taala. In fewer verses, we spend a lifetime in universities and post university degrees, trying to learn how to put our thoughts together and trying to put our life together. And yet as Muslims, we haven't really pondered enough to know that it has been summarized for us and few verses, coming to our coming to how to raise your children and all of that. Just a few verses, I came to know that what a beautiful system was set by Allah subhanaw taala. First he talks about how you should dissociate from the worldly glamour. And then how to stay away from those people and yet not boycott them. Not an easy thing to do, of course. And
then the story of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, how he did it in such a witty way, I'm not sure if this incident of the stars and the moon happened before the breaking up the idols or if this happened after
that happened before because when he did break the idols, then he was tried to burn him burn and then he left. So Pamela I was thinking about that. And I said, like, you know how systematically Allah subhanaw taala tells us how to approach things in life.
And then, you know, he tells them by almost in a very way he's making a mockery of them without them even realizing that he is because he says, really do you do this, and then finally he is put to fire. So you know, even if we have to taste the burn of the mockery of the world and all that we can do things in a systematic way. But in also Panama, we're dealing with people that are somewhat A lot of us are still in the earlier times, believe it or not, certain things that we do, but you know, the system that has been shown by Allah subhanaw taala it's just I feel very weakened today.
I was just thinking continuously. Since yesterday, my son asked me this question like how can I focus towards a lot of data, and things are being piled up together in and again, right away? I was thinking holy, I was singing with Abraham Lucena and spawn a life of God that this story is coming right after that. This is the miracle of Quran today. When it came up, I got my answer whatever I was thinking to tell him, Allah subhanaw taala, guiding me in the right direction, that Allah subhanaw taala really loves us more than 70 times the number, the last kid right. And till the time sort of an arm has started. And I'm just combining things together. How beautiful style of Allah
subhanaw taala is to bring us close to him. And the order of the verses is so beautiful, like most is telling us our problem. Our problem is that there's so much occupied with the different kinds of lies, because there's too much repetition in this case. Previously, if we notice, and now recently, Allison was mentioning about the law, and law, and so many things, right? These are the distractions, so many, we are so much occupied, that we never get even chance to get close to reflect on the Koreas. And then there is the ordinate Allah gave us that recognize me through science, use your different faculties, and then leave love and low distraction and then take help
from a bother because we've been told but a chemo salon these things are. And now is giving us example of Ibrahim al Islam, how he recognized his Lord. And same because if we know his style previously Surah Baqarah, you'll learn he asked, I want to see and unless I asked him, don't you have your team? He certainly thought mine Academy. Right. So what is his type? Because he was continuously looking for the truth. It doesn't mean he didn't have the truth. He knew it but he just wanted to make it known to us. Right? And the thing is that you cannot convey until you have you.
This is an ongoing process. It's not that you read the Quran once and you have in mind and you have your opinion everything. No, it's a constant process. Each time you learn each time you develop your key.
So learn it yourself was Have you seen in yourself, then prove others as well. Because if you yourself is not satisfied, there is no innovate in your own words. And giving power to others definitely helps your plan it helps your your theme as you start sharing with other people that you know then what you have learned when travel will become fixed in your head.
And money come as thinking the love and the desire that Ibraheem alehissalaam had to give power and the love that he had for loss of power.
metalla every witness nowadays Jehovah Witness, they are not on the right path. But the desire that they have to give Dawa. They believe that this is the right path, and I'm going to convey the message no matter what, they're not shy about it. And here we are, on the guidance on our laws telling us what's reading for us and allies telling us what's every word to give Dawa. And here is a law giving us example of Ibraheem alehissalaam and steps, Allah is guiding us. And we still think that I'm too shy, or maybe I don't have knowledge or maybe we don't want to come out of our comfort zone.
Just thinking of her property personality and and he conveyed the knowledge he was conveying how exactly it was for antennas that are he, he first he didn't go up and say, You know what, you guys are wrong. Initially, people in the gym during the meal, so you know, everything you're thinking everything that you're doing everything you're believing it's completely wrong. You said in a coma
he had when he made them understand as well, because we just go and tell them you're wrong. And I'm right. He explained to them how they were wrong, and how he was right. And that is very important.
Family for those thinking, how big the importance of guidance, so we always hear, and we say, whoever Allah guides not can ever miss guide. And it was only Abraham and the whole nation was like, you know, attacking him or all that stuff. But he was still guided, because Allah guided him. So you have to strive to get a lot of guidance to help you exactly, because if you look at it, the sun, the moon, the star, they were there every day. But everybody didn't get that lesson. He did. He was given ruya it mia bruja basura and which everybody is not given. So this is the special vehicle of Nasir Panther, which he gives to those servants of his who deserve it.
So I come
upon the idea that we learned previously and when I can be crawl under,
so admonished him so that they may fear a lot. That was the first of all lucky. And then not only do them some student advocates as well. And I remembered when Alton Abraham when he would go to his father and his people, he would these people are committing shark. And he wouldn't say, you know, oh, man of shark, he would say Yeah.
He would say yeah, but he This is his father, and he never forgot the Holy Father and the wedding. And he says, Yeah, call me not young seeking. Yeah, call me all my people.
I was thinking where these eyes of characteristics will last constantly started. And yesterday, listen, that one last time that he took command, that process allowed me to disassociate himself from the ship that if I follow what you're following, and I'd be misguided, then right away or less data, he shows the characteristics of what the true God is that he has to have the complete power, the knowledge of the unseen. And then over here, God has to be always there and not often times. So let's have that he's giving us recognition of himself through a beautiful way with his name because what is descriptions?
I was so amazed by the argumentation process here. For those of us that such background, when you're trying to do the research, you go from one point to another point and another point to another point. And they tried to teach you that in university you're trying to choose, don't just go jump to conclusion. You have to go one by one by one. And we have it that many years in this book never realized.
