lesson number 139 sudo. To no
way there but then if
and when we substitute a verse McKenna, I think, in place of a verse, but there are you but the root of the What does that mean? To change, to replace to substitute. So when we substitute one idea in McCann in place of, I think of another idea
how binus abrogation, what does that mean? That when an AI is revealed, when a certain command is given in that, and another ayah is revealed after that, which cancels out the command, which was mentioned in the first one. This is what
abrogation we have studied about this earlier in the Quran. And
so, when we substitute one verse for another, we'll know article and Allah is most annoying be my unit zero of what he has sent down.
Although they say who says the machine they say in NEMA anthem have indeed you are only a fabricator, you're a liar, you are an inventor, you are a forger.
moved on is from the root letters fell
from the word if the law and if the law is to fabricate something.
Basically, it's another word for you failure and failure is to cut something leather in particular, lengthwise, in order to make something out of it.
Like for example, if you buy a huge piece of fabric, what do you have to do? What do you have to do first, you have to cut it right. And only then you can make something out of it.
Similarly for you is to cut leather, how lengthwise so that you can make something out of it. You make sure that it's long enough so that you can make something out of it because if it's not long enough, you won't be able to make anything out of it. And from this one, the word goes to if there are if there are is to fabricate to make up something to invent something.
And generally it is used for fabricating a lie.
So they say you are a great liar. You have invented all of this, unless has been a thorough one, but most of them lie alone. They do not know what do they not know the reality of the Quran that it is from Allah, they do not know the benefit the wisdom behind us, they do not know that whatever Allah commands is best for his servants, and he knows what is good for them. We seek the machine of Makkah, they would come up with many objections against the Prophet sallallahu Salah. Why because they're constantly under the influence of shaitaan as Allah Subhana Allah says in the previous ayah, when Medina whom he wished he called those Russian, they are overcome by shaitan.
So the machine of Mecca as well, they would come to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they would object at many things.
And all those matters, which they objected on was the Quran
and especially about the Quran, they would say that what kind of a book is this, it mentions a fly, it mentions a mosquito, your book should have stories about God. And we have stories about people, we have examples of trees and so on and so forth, what kind of a book is this?
Or they would say things like, how come one command is given and after some time, that command is substituted by another one. If it was really from God, then it will be consistent then commands will not change. This shows that you are fabricating, you are inventing.
So Allah subhanaw taala is saying that Val occur home lay on the moon, most of them do not know the wisdom behind us. What's the wisdom behind us to bring is
if you look at it, the Quran was revealed gradually, it was revealed gradually it was implemented gradually. And in order to bring about a change, you have to implement it gradually.
so that people can absorb one thing after the other.
And in doing that, you also have to alter the instructions a little bit. Why does that slowly and gradually, people are led to the final instruction so that they're able to implement it. If on the first day, people are told, you cannot eat this, you cannot eat that you cannot do this, you cannot do that would they be able to implement, they will not be able to implement gradually, they're told
and when they're told gradually, sometimes there's abrogation, how, like for example, at the beginning, one thing is made permissible and utterly
Time that thing is made impermissible, it's made unlawful.
Now a person might say, See, used to eat that before? You used to do that before? Now you don't do it anymore.
What does it show that you have contradiction in your religion? This is not contradiction. This change has evolved gradually so that it's easier for people to accept, it's easier for people to implement.
So what's the wisdom behind us?
that people can change gradually?
And there is another wisdom behind that. And what is it that it's attached to people, people are being tested, that who remains firm, and who turns back on his heels as we learned earlier in North America and the second use that when the Qibla was changed what it allows parents to say well merger, unencrypted, Atletico de la Ilaha, illa manyatta, we have a soul, we may and caribou, or there are people who is going to follow the messenger and who's going to turn away from their religion. So it's a test as well.
Some say that this ayah is not necessarily what abrogation in the Quran.
Because at the earlier stage, because remember, the sutra is murky. At that point, there wasn't a lot of abrogation, most of the abrogation that happened were in Medina, because that's when the actual laws were revealed.
So it is said that this is it is emphasizing the fact that Allah has substituted the Quran for the previous regulations. Were there but then Adam McKenna it? What does it mean that Allah has substituted the Quran for the previous revelations and scriptures,
that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that this scripture has to be followed, and the previous ones are not to be followed? What do they say? You're fabricating. Because if you were really truthful, then you would say, even that has to be followed.
And once I actually came across a Christian person, and when I told him that this is kuranda, is also revelation, and the same God, from whom came to Torah and the NGO, he said that how come this is not a third testament?
Because I said that if Christians are to follow the first estimate, were to believe in it, follow it. And the second testament, if we're to follow this, then this also has to be a part of the same scripture, this has to be the third estimate. And because it's not, that's why this has nothing to do with the revelation that God sent to us. They say in an anthem after you fabricated, but the fact is that the Quran does not reject the previous books. What do we believe about the previous books, they were sent for the people, but they were to be implemented when, at that time. And now Allah subhanaw taala has sent the Quran and this has to be implemented until when, until the end of time.
It's not that we reject the thoda. And the NGO, we believe, we believe in them, that they were sent by Allah subhanaw taala. But it's just that they're not to be followed. Why? Because they have been altered. Now person might say that if they have been altered an alarm should send the original book again. That's what people could say. But if you think about the Torah and the Injeel, they were mainly about to the Bani Israel. Whereas in this dunya, it's not just the Bani Israel who exist, there are many other people who exist. Similarly, the commands that were given to them, they were more strict, they were more difficult. And now the commands that a loss apparently has given,
they're more easier.
And if you think about it, the main message that was in those books has been preserved in the Quran. The Quran is Mohammed over the previous books.
So this ayah can be understood in two ways. First of all, that it refers to the nest in the Quran and secondly, that the fact that Allah substituted the Quran for the previous scriptures
all say to them, say for all of these people who say that you have fabricated the Quran, that nazma who he has revealed it, meaning he has brought it down, who has brought it down rule headquarters, the pure spirit, who is a pure spirit, angels up
and notice the word NASA, NASA is to bring down gradually
that he has gradually brought it down as per need. And as per Allah subhanaw taala is hokum. And in gradual revelation, there is going to be nice nassetta who will help others what does this mean? That which is pure, basically, this is that which is far distant, which is why beighton knock this because it is distant.
So, rural, kudos, the pure spirit, the pure soul Jubilee. Why is he called vocal chorus because he is far from sin and disobedience. With our Luna minute model, the angels they do whatever Allah subhanaw taala commenced
and also called us because he is a very honorable Angel. How
Because he brought the Quran he brought the revelation to the previous messengers.
So coolness Allahu raha codice mirrabooka from your Lord, how will help with the truth? Meaning, whatever the Quran is whatever Allah subhanaw taala has said that is the actual Koran that is being revealed to the Prophet sallallahu
the angel does not alternate, he does not change it, he has not invented it by himself. No, it has been how it is from Allah soprano.
And why is the Quran being gradually revealed to you? Leo said better so that he becomes firm, so that he makes firm who alladhina amanu those people who believe
you serve better from New factors, sir, that
serve better use of beat to death beat which is to make something for destabilize something.
So those people who believe are made firm by this gradual revolution?
How are they made firm?
They're made more firm on their own. They're made firm on their demand, gradual guidance, because if you think about it, the Quran was revealed, according to situations, certain ayat were revealed, according to situations, whatever the situation was, whatever the need was, according to that revelation came guiding the people.
Now think about it, if you're going through a problem, you open up the Koran, and you find your answer over there. What is that going to make you feel? It's going to strengthen your email. Right? It's gonna give you more confidence.
Similarly, the Sahaba when the Quran was revealed, according to the situation when they needed those answers, what did that do it strengthen their
liyu sabitha, Latina alladhina.
This has been understood in another way as well. And what is that, that it may make their hearts firm, meaning it may make them happy, it may bring rest to their hearts when they see that the new command is easier and more relevant more practical than the previous one. It is easier it is more practical than the previous one do you submit a Latina woman?
What would any guidance mean? This Koran is a guidance wabasha. And good news for who live muslimeen for those who submit.
So we see in this ayah that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the benefit of gradual revelation.
If you think about it, when it rains very fast, the earth the soil, it becomes slippery, and it becomes very muddy.
Whereas if it rains gradually, then what happens? The water is absorbed. And with that the ground it becomes firm,
isn't it so. So when something is given gradually, it becomes more firm. And if you give all of it at once, then it has harmful effect.
And this is the reason why even we're not allowed to recite the Quran in less than three days. You know that we're not allowed to recite the Quran in less than three days, we must take at least three, not less than three, to recite the entire Quran. Why? Because if you take it all together at once in one doors, it will not impact you as much it will not affect you as much.
Now a person might say that we got the Quran altogether. The Sahaba got it over a period of 23 years, but we have the entire Quran cover to cover right before us. What's the difference? Then? How can the Koran make our hearts firm, despite the fact that has been given to us altogether?
If you think about it, we can agree to hold on all together at once in one setting. Even if we try to we're not allowed to do that.
And again, you open up the Quran, you recite the Quran, one portion here, one portion there, you're taking it in, gradually you're reminding yourself gradually you're memorizing gradually understanding gradually, and that has a different impact on you.
So this shows to us about the importance of studying the Quran, gradually.
One Ordinary Level and certainly we know, unknown that indeed the yo Luna they say in your elimu Bashar
that indeed, a human being teaches him the machine of Makkah, again with the objections that they brought against the Prophet sallallahu wasallam often was that it's not possible that you can produce something like the Quran. You have learned all of this from somewhere from someone.
So what would they say? What would they accuse him of that inner your alemayehu Basha? It's not that an angel comes with revelation. It's actually a human being who teaches him
It's actually a human being who teaches.
Now in this allegation, they're admitting that the Prophet sallallahu, himself could not produce the outline. Right? They're admitting this themselves. They're acknowledging this themselves that it's not possible for him to produce something like that.
But it was very difficult for them to accept that it was actually revelation from Allah that was coming.
And even today, there are people who realize this, that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam could not have produced the Quran himself. But they just don't want to accept there is actually revelation from Allah.
Which is why they say that he learned it from this man, or from that man from that slave from that traveler from that businessman from that merchant. They say many things, but they will not get to the point that Allah is the one who revealed it. If you think about believing in the fact that a lot of youth is much easier, compared to figuring out who taught him the Quran, and dwelling upon it.
Once I was reading this book in which this author she's very positive about Islam, but I'm amazed that she's still not a Muslim. May Allah guide her. She was basically writing about the Quran, and in that she was written that one must has to admit that this
came from God or something like that, you have to admit that he could not have produced something on himself. He could not have and she has written that clearly. But still, I wonder what is the difficulty in accepting that it came from Allah.
If you study the Quran, if you study his life, and you've come to the conclusion that he himself could not produce something like the Quran and just accept that it's from Allah, stop coming up with one justification and another explanation and another explanation, it's going to make your life more complicated and difficult.
So the Arab as well, they have the same problem. And they would say that your only mubasher that a man teaches,
who is this man?
There are many opinions about who this person was. They said that he was a man who lived among the people of Makkah as a servant. And he was a servant to some of the clans of Kurdish. According to some he was a servant of the kind of bunny Madeira.
And he used to sell goods, he was a merchant used to sell things for the tribe, by the amount of suffer.
And some say that he was a Roman Christian. Other said that he was Jewish. So there's a difference of opinion as to who he actually was. But he was definitely not an Arab.
And because he was either Christian, according to some are Jewish, according to some, he knew the Bible. He knew the Torah and the NGO.
He was known for that.
And there were people in Makkah, who knew the Torah and the NGO, a few of them like, for example, even what type of nofo he knew the engine.
So this man also he knew the Torah and the engine, but remember, he was not an Arab? Who was he? Either Roman or Persian or somewhere from outside of Arabia, or he was Jewish. And the fact is that a non Arab first of all does not know Arabic.
isn't even if he knows Arabic, can it ever be his first language?
It cannot be his first language it's going to be his second language. So Allah subhanaw taala says that Lisa known tongue meaning the language of unnaturally of the person who usually do not lie they wrongly attribute to him is what our Jimmy you it is foreign it is non Arab.
What Heather and this is listen on language meaningful and isn't a language that is r&b that is Arabic, and this is an Arabic and Arabic is muy bien it is clear.
So how is it possible that a foreigner whose first language is not Arabic, he produces the Quran, which is so eloquent? It's not possible, it does not make sense. The word you're doing is wrong lamb hadn't landed and it has to deviate. It is to deviate, that you're going straight but then you go sideways. So from this, your donor is understood as they unjustly hint, they attribute wrongly they refer to
so the person whom they are referring to that this is the man who teaches in the Quran. He is our Jimmy, who is our Jimmy, Jimmy is from New fetters IMG me and Arjun is a person who is not eloquent. Literally are Jimmy is a person who is not eloquent a person who is laid for see a person whose language is not fussy, whatever language is being
Whether it is Arabic or not, whether it's Arabic English version, whatever language he speaks, he's not eloquent at that. He's not clear in that language. This is who our Jimmy because our Jimmy is from aroma and aroma is ambiguity unclarity muteness to be unable to speak. There is another word, which is our Jimmy.
And now Jimmy is a non Arab.
So what's the difference between the two? Our Jimmy is non eloquent. And our Jimmy is non Arab.
Now why would the Arabs call non Arabs or Jimmy?
Because they did not know their language. They could hardly understand the language of other people. And so for them, the other people were as good as dumb, as good as unable to express themselves.
And ultimately think of it Arabic compared to any other languages, very eloquent, very clear. So this is why a non Arabic was called who urged me.
So the person whom they're ascribing this Quran to is who is our Jimmy, that he is not eloquent? Why is he not eloquent in Arabic? Because first of all, it's not his first language. Secondly, it's possible that in his speech, normally he was not that eloquent.
Why had I listen on Arabic? You mean, and this hold on is in the language of Arabic, which is one that is eloquent one that clarifies one that explains clearly one that explains eloquently. So how can an origami person teach the Quran? How is it possible? No one with the slightest amount of common sense would say such a thing that this Quran is the column of someone who does not speak Arabic whose second language is Arabic. It's not possible.
In the Medina indeed those people who live on a big delay, who do not believe in the Ayat of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala says about them that ley de m Allahu Allah is not going to guide them, he is not going to guide them he is not going to give them the tofield to believe, while Homer adapa Aleem and for them is a painful punishment. Because this Quran is a hidayah. For who, for those people who have Taqwa and those people who do not believe in the Ayat of Allah, Allah will not force them to believe
a law will not force them to accept Islam. And when they will not accept when they will not believe. Obviously for them is a painful punishment in the hereafter. Because a person who is not on this religion for the Holloman law who already has been in a woman you should be left forgot her mama lava Yujin
in my after in kariba, the only people who invent falsehood, or who alladhina la mina, bi Attila, those people who do not believe in the verses of Allah, what will lead eco who will get the booth and it is those who are liars.
The machine accused the profits out of out of inventing the Koran
of lying about the fact that he was a prophet. So Allah subhanaw taala is saying over here, that he cannot be a liar. Who is a liar You are a liar?
Because innama yesterday will Khadija The only person who fabricates lies. The only person who lies is who alladhina lie You mean una bi Attila those who do not believe in the ayatollah
and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he believes in the eyes of Allah, you do not believe in the ayah This is why you can go online, and you can go on saying whatever you want, what will that eco homolka the moon and those, in fact it is they who are the liars, meaning those who lie concerning the ayatollah are the greatest liars.
We see that line is a very big crime. It's a major sin.
And lying about Oregon is a great line.
It's a much worse crime and sin.
To say that this Quran is not from Allah, to say that it is not the word of Allah, to say that it is fabricated to attribute it to a slave, to attribute it to a foreigner to attribute it to a human being. This is a great lie.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam what was he well known for? his honesty, his truthfulness. It was known that this man never lies. This man never speaks on truth. This man is extremely trustworthy. If you deposit an Amana with him, he will never betray you.
So how is it possible that they assumed about him that all of a sudden he is lying about a law that he is lying, that revelation comes to him? It doesn't make sense. We learned that when Abu Sufyan
He went to Iraq. He is the king of Rome.
I was a fan asked him about the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
and all the things that he asked him was that have you ever accused him of lying? And what it was a fiance? Never, he's never been accused of lying. He's never been accused of telling a lie.
This was Abu sufian before Islam, not after he became a Muslim.
So, Iraqis, he said that he would refrain from lying about people and then go and fabricate lies about Omar Meaning, if he does not lie to people about people, how can we expect that he lies about God? It does not make sense. So over here, lots of parents are saying that, who is really lying over here, not the Prophet sort of autism, it's you people who are like,
and if you look at it, in this ayah, lying is mentioned al Qaeda,
in ma after al Qaeda, alladhina la umina. Bi Attila, who can lie? Who lies, who's a liar. A person who does not believe in the Ayat of Allah, what does it show that a believer can never lie? A believer can never lie.
Remember how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was asked for this habit that can a believer be a coward? And he said yes. And they asked him about a number of things that can a believer do this kind of believe or do this? And he said yes. But then when they asked that, can a believer lie? He said no.
A believer can never lie. An honest believer, a true believer, he can never lie.
I'd like to say something,
a person who lies constantly one after the other, he does not have any.
He does not have any belief, any faith. And one lie leads to another lie until the person is eventually written as a liar. So how can you have hired to play Yuba in this dunya in the bursa or in the hereafter?
I said, Did you know that we follow the Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ? We said that we're dressed up like the Blessed Virgin Mary, we follow Jesus Christ. I said, look at our men, they have beard.
This is for them. It's a shocking thing. But I guess like you know, if we go out more and then tell them that, so why aren't you doing this? Because they don't know. Exactly.
So I told him, I said, Did you know that we follow the Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ, and I couldn't say anything.
We listened to the recitation of these.
Let's continue with lesson
He, whoever this believes in Allah after his belief, after he became a believer after he accepted a man after he lived his life as a Muslim, as a believer, what does he do? cafaro he disbelieves. How? By for example, the person says words of
I don't believe in Allah. I don't believe in the Quran. I don't believe in the angels. I don't believe in the Day of Judgment. This is what go for. He leaves Islam, he abandons the religion. He calls the Prophet sallallahu sallam, someone who had fabricated someone who had invented man kafa Billahi min Birdy. eema and he, whoever disbelieves in Allah after his Eman in there except man, aka the person who was forced to do so.
A person who was compelled to commit coffin verbally.
Like for example, a person was forced to say something that is academic of like a person is forced to say, I don't believe in Muhammad Sallallahu
I don't believe that he was a messenger of Allah. And he was forced to that he was threatened that if he does not say he is going to be killed.
Well, I will while his heart meaning when he's saying the kalama Cofer at the same time his heart his motto my inability man it is content and satisfied with him. Meaning he is not shaky in his heart when it comes to belief in the prophets are noticeable. When it comes to belief in Allah soprano data in his heart he is a true believer. Because remember a man is this leap in the heart first and then verbalizing it then on the tank.
So a person who believes in the heart but he has been compelled, he has been forced, he's being threatened and he must say some kalama Cofer in order to get out of that situation. If he says a Karima Cofer, he is not going to become a catfish. He is not going to become a disbeliever
while I can but man Shara The one who opened bilko free for the disbelief Southern chest. Meaning a person who's just is open for coffee. Just imagine chauraha literally is to open something to cut open a piece of meat and to spread it out.
So just imagine the heart is cut open. So that gopher can go in. Meaning he willingly opens up to gopher he willingly accepts it, he readily takes it in he likes it. Then such a person for la murderbot minima upon them his anger of Allah. Such people are my boo hoo. Those who willingly accept gopher after a while or whom are the winner Aleem and for them is a great punishment.
In the dunya they might be saved. They might be very successful upon leaving their religion upon leaving Islam, but how long will they enjoy? in the hereafter Allah says what a home or the oven or lien for them is a great punishment.
