Al-Isra 1-10 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 2-6
What are they now? Mazel keytab. And we gave Musashi Salaam, the Scripture with Scripture, the total.
If you notice in the previous ayah, what is mentioned the gift that was given to Muhammad Sallallahu ala.
And in this ayah what is mentioned? The gift that was given to Masada Sarah,
what's your Allahu, and we made it, meaning the book that was given to Masada, salaam, the Torah, we made it who then a guide meaning a means of obtaining guidance for who liberty is for you, for the children of Israel.
And what was the essence of the book? What was the main message of the book? I learned that not a combination of an end law that do not that who you are take meaning Albany Israel do not adopt mean dooney besides me, meaning besides a las panatela will keela a trustee?
Who is Joaquin? Joaquin is one on whom tawakkol Islam
tawakkol Joaquin from the roof address, well, Caf Lan?
And what does that mean? What does the work will mean? To trust upon someone to hand over all of your affairs for them to know that they're going to complete your tasks for you, they're going to take care of all of your affairs for you.
Like for example, when a person trusts upon Allah subhanaw taala, what does he do? For example, if a person has a test coming up, so she studies she does her best, she memorizes the entire lesson, she goes through all the root letters, all of the singular plurals she goes to the word list studies everything in detail. And then what happens, she leaves it to a mother or law, you enable me to do the test easily. you enable me to pass the test successfully. This is what the workload is that you do your best. And then you leave it to Allah subhanaw taala that he will take care of you.
Because sometimes, you do your best but still what happens? What happens? you're unable to perform your test properly, you're not successful in what you want to accomplish. It happens many times.
So the what cool is that you trust upon him with hope that he will take care of you he will complete all of your tasks for you.
So the essence of the book was that do not take or Bunny is slightly besides me meaning besides Allah subhanaw taala it will kill in other words rely only upon me. Trust on me, don't trust yourselves. Don't rely on others, but rely only on Allah soprano.
We see that the way the Quran is the means of guidance for all mankind. Now, for all people. The total was specifically guidance for who for the bunny slay because over here, what do we learn? Then we're Athena muscle kita was your Allahu who then leave any sorry. It's not who the leanness
so we see that the total was specifically sent for who the bunny is for you.
And the toa is the greatest scripture after the Quran.
Where do we learn that from? So it's an anon I 154 we learn so much Idina moussaka, Tabitha Mammon, either lady or Sunnah, what I've seen and liquidity Shea in what who don't want to mutton, now under whom Billerica European Union.
That then we gave musala cylinder scripture making complete our favor upon the one who did good and as a detailed explanation of all things and as a guidance and mercy that perhaps in the matter of the meeting with their Lord, they would believe.
Similarly, we learned that Wakata vanilla who fill Allah he mean coalition in molar ellerton with obscene and liquid cliche, sort of era I 145.
And we wrote for him on the tablet something of all things instruction and explanation for all things.
So we see the total was given for the guidance of Bani Israel.
But remember, that the Bani Israel we're not just responsible for believing in the Torah and observing the Torah themselves. What were they told that they must also guide the rest of humanity that they must also preach to other people they must also do Dawa to others.
And in order to do that, what does a person need? He needs to trust upon Allah. Which is why it is said alert at the human do any work ILA.
When a person does their will when a person is calling others to Allah subhanaw taala it becomes extremely difficult it becomes
Very challenging, and he needs the help of Allah.
Because you can use your proofs you can use your arguments you can use your logic you can give your evidences, but who will give you wisdom, who will give you that sense to seize the right opportunity to say the right thing and also penalty, so trust upon him rely upon him.
And the same lesson was also given to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam right at the beginning of his mission.
We learned instead of the Muslim ally, number nine, or bull machete when Muslim, La Ilaha Illa, who for the hit who Akilah, the Lord of the east and the west, there is no god except Him, therefore, take him as a rookie.
And the one who trusts upon Allah subhanaw taala Allah is sufficient for him. We don't until at the Pollak I number three, when my ESL worker and Allah for husband, whoever trusts upon Allah, then Allah is sufficient for him.
And we have also been commanded to do the same in sort of a con i have 58 watercolor and how you lady lay a mood was a very handy, the trust upon the one who is alive, who does not die who's ever living and exalt Allah with his grace because when a person trusts upon Allah, that his matters become easy for him, it becomes very easy for him to deliver the message to the people.
The Regatta, descendants of who man hemella of those who we carried Menuhin with knew
the word z yetta this is monsoon there is a fatality and we chose that something is going on before the words of the year
and what is going on over here
that the year is monsoon because it is a monada What is monada who is the one who is being called so this shows to us that before is of the year there is a Yeah, that is implied so it's yeah the radiator
Why isn't yeah mentioned? Because by mentioning the reata when yeah can be implied and why I mentioned Yeah.
this is the beauty of the Quran, that no extra words are there. And if there are extra words that's only for the purpose of beautification.
So over here yeah is not mentioned, because that would make the canal heavy.
So do the yetta meaning all descendants or descendants of who man Hamill nama I knew one of those whom we carried in the ship with new Elisa,
meaning Bani Israel, those to whom Allah subhanaw taala gave the book those to whom Allah said do not take besides me a working Who are you?
You are descendants of those who we carried with no on the ship.
Meaning on you is a huge blessing of a loss of power.
You are the descendants of the Prophet nuha hustler
we learned earlier and so today I have 48 there were new artists that I was saved. He was on the ship with him there were some believers. And when the ship settled on the mound God new penicillin was sold to a new bill to be said on Amina oberle keratin alayka y ella oma Mimi marca. So we learned that with new Hardison, um, there were other people as well. And the people who came on the earth after him, they were who descendants of those survivors.
And who were they eventually the money is for you because the Bani Israel were descendants of Abraham Isaac.
So when he assigned are being reminded of a huge favor that Allah subhanaw taala bestowed upon them, that Allah saved your ancestors. Look, you are here today because of law saved your father's it's a huge blessing of Allah upon you.
And who was your father who was your great ancestor in the hood, meaning new artists and I was gonna he was our than shakoora, a servant who was very grateful.
Shaku is Kathy roshe. The one who is very grateful, repeatedly grateful, intensely appreciated.
So Matter of fact, he said, that no Hadassah, whenever he would eat, he would say Alhamdulillah and whenever he would drink, he would say 100
and whenever he would wear clothes, he would say Alhamdulillah
every time he used a blessing, what would he say? Alhamdulillah This is why I called him Arbor then shocker.
So the money is right or being told that your ancestor he was so grateful to Allah. So you should also be grateful, just as he was grateful.
And if you connect desire with the previous I, in the previous I have what what are we taught that trust upon
So we see that after the worker, a person must develop the quality of gratitude. That is why the Quran begins with and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen and the previous sort of what did we learn sugar, sugar for the many blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has bestowed upon us in Ghana.
Let's listen to the recitation
and we conveyed to the, to the children of Israel.
The word Kadena from the roof letters of last year, from the word other and Kaaba is to conclude, to pass a judgement to set a decree
and other when the word is followed by Isla cada either it is to inform it is to make something known. It is to announce something to inform something in detail to make it known,
like we learned earlier as well, that will Kadena la gallican Umbra and adalberto will let you Maclaurin must be hearing lutherie Salah When the angels came to him, what did they do kobina la, meaning they informed him it was made known to him it was clearly told to him that the people will be destroyed How? By morning.
So avena illa, Bani Israel, we informed the Bani Israel you were Where do you think in the book in the Scripture, because the previous is what is mentioned the scripture that the Bani Israel were given the kita
so what kobina 11 Israel, they were informed by a loss of panel data in the Torah, Phil kitabi. In the book, let's have Sedona fill out the that surely you will definitely make mischief in the earth,
which earth which land is this? The land of a sham, the area of a sham.
And to see Donna from the newsletters fair, seen the word facade and what does facade mean? corruption
and remember that corruption is of various types. Sometimes it is tangible. Other times it is intangible. Sometimes it is amongst the people. Sometimes it is in relationships. Sometimes it is in thinking in actions in behavior. It's a various types.
So over here, what type of facade is meant a lot of Sedona fill of the model attain you will definitely create facade in the earth twice, two times.
This facade refers to religious corruption,
and this facade is a facade of morality of sins. Acts of disobedience, oppression, injustice, killing profits, killing innocence, being very oppressive towards them.
by Israel were told by our last panel data that you will definitely create facade how many times more than twice
meaning there will be two peak periods of your corruption and disobedience. In your history, there will be at least two peak periods, where you will be extremely oppressive, extremely unjust, extremely disobedient. And this will be when you have driven away from the book of Allah subhanaw
taala was given to them, so that it would be a means of guidance for them, a means of mercy for them, but when they left the book, they ended up committing a lot of mercy. And that led to facade
and which is why in their history, they were do big periods in which they were extremely disobedient, extremely oppressive.
One at our aluna and surely, you will definitely ascend you will definitely be arrogant or low one heartiness or height that is Kabila. That is great. Letter aluna from the ruthless I inland while loop and what does it mean height and Terra Lu, what does it mean that you will go up you will ascend higher,
you will ascend higher
and figuratively, the word is also used for turning arrogant, becoming extremely disobedient and becoming defiant.
In certain causes, and number 83 we learn later you read sooner or later one fill of the while Fs either those who do not desire or no one in the earth, meaning any height in the sense of being arrogant, whatever Southern nor any facet.
So, when at our Luna Erlewine Kabira. This has been understood in two ways.
That first of all, you will reach great heights, you will become extremely successful in the worldly sense, you will be extremely powerful, you will be extremely wealthy, you will have a lot of control a lot of authority.
Secondly, what are alumina or lumen kaviraj What this means is that you will become extremely arrogant, extremely arrogant, because remember figuratively the word means to become arrogant, to consider oneself to be higher than the other. So you will become extremely arrogant and you will transgress excessively, you will become extremely oppressive on people. Why? Because of your worldly success, because of your wealth because of your power. And as a result, you will become great tyrants and when you will do that, you will be severely punished every time.
So in this ayah what do we see that Allah subhanaw taala told the Bani Israel when he revealed the Book to them, that you will reach do big periods in which you will commit a lot of facade in which you will become extremely arrogant and disobedient. And in the worldly sense, you will be extremely successful at that point.
However, as a consequence of this, Allah subhanaw taala will also punish you, he will also punish you because when people they start committing evil, then what happens? What happens? Allah subhanaw taala punishes them.
Remember that our people can survive with gopher, but they cannot survive with
and Allah subhanaw taala gives rest bite to the violin. He does not catch him immediately. He lets him commit more and more, until when he seizes him, he does not let go of him. Then he punishes him with a great punishment.
Now a person might say the last panel, Tara said Audrina, we decreed. We said we inform them that this is going to happen. So the money Israel didn't really have a choice. This was the decree of Allah and whatever Allah has decreed is certainly going to happen. So why is the money Israel to blame?
The thing is, that Allah subhanaw taala decreed this why because he knew about it
allows the penalties not knowledge is not limited to the past, present or the future. His knowledge is complete. And he told the Bani Israel as a forewarning. As a forewarning that this is going to happen. So be careful. Don't let that happen while you are alive.
Just as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us many things as well, that how they're going to be times when his oma is going to become extremely rebellious is going to innovate things and the religion is going to corrupt the religion. Did he say that so that we are bound to make those mistakes? No, he told us about those things so that we don't do those things.
Like for example, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to us that you will follow the process
AUMA the previous nations step by step, and you will follow them in everything that they do. What was the point of saying that, but be careful, don't do it. Similarly, the money Australia also warned about this.
So Allah subhanaw taala tells us over here that this is something that was going to happen the money Israel were informed about this. And as a result of this great rebellion, as a result of this great disobedience of any Israeli we're also punished, which is mentioned in the following if
that failed that jet or do hula hula. So when the time of promise game for the first of them,
first of them, hula, hula, first of them do, what does it do refer to
the two peak periods of facade.
So the first of the two refers to the first occasion of disobedience, the first occasion of facade in the earth, the first occasion of mischief making.
And what was a result of that? That Allah subhanaw taala would punish them? Isn't it?
When they would commit great facade, a loss of penalty was going to punish them as a result of that.
So if I either jawara do hula hula, the promise refers to the promise of punishment that became due for the first occasion of disobedience for the first occasion of extreme mischief making.
So then when the first time they committed this great facade, how did Allah subhanaw taala punish them? Basner we raised we sent our lay come upon you, meaning against you, in order to punish you.
The word Barasa is to raise to send and the word barthel. One followed by either it means to send someone as a prophet, to appoint someone and send him as a prophet to people.
But when the word bartha is followed by eyeland, like over here, beisner Aleykum it means to send as a punishment, to send someone against the other, descend something against the other in order to punish.
So we see that there are two types of virus of Bursa, Indonesia, one viruses of the Hereafter, bars bar that mode, we're not talking about that. We're talking about the bare set that is in dystonia. It's of two types. First of all, the sheary which is up [???]tier what does that mean, when a profit is sent by Arthur, either?
And the second type is Kony. What does that mean? That when a punishment is sent against people,
so barsana aleikum, which kind of verifies this Kony
so vajrasana aleikum, we sent against you Reba Lehner, servants of ours, rebelled his authority. And remember that every creation is an observable sprinter, every servant everything, whether angels or jinn are human beings. Everything is what and are the velocity?
And the word that includes one who submits to Allah and one who does not submit to Him, one who worships Allah and the other who does not worship Allah? Because even if a creature does not worship Allah, does it change the status from being a servant to Allah to something else? No, he will still be the servant of of law, that is his true position.
So Rebecca Lehner, servants of ours, who are these people,
meaning a loss of penalty, Allah sent some people against the Bani Israel to carry out the punishment on the to inflict the punishment of Allah upon them. And these people, they were not Muslim. They were not believers, because at that time, who were believers, the money is for you. So those who are at war with them are certainly not believers of the time. Correct. So why are these people call it rebellion, because they were carrying out the punishment that Allah had sent. Carrying out our punishment, sorry, by the learner.
Now, who are these people? There are many, many opinions about them.
According to some, it refers to the Armada
the people of our medical
according to others, it refers to both the nurse of
both the nurse have I found the correct
pronunciation of both dental stuff in Arabic. It's both the NASA ban ha the noon sword
and the sword has a shadow on it both tennis
and according to others, it was dilute.
Remember the story of falutin Jeju that we learned so jello was sent upon the Bani Israel who according to Bani Israel, what is the same origin I'm in the arena what Abner in that they were expelled from their houses and their children were killed. And as a result of that, a lot of penalty What did he do later on? He raised loot amongst the Bani Israel to go and fight j loot and then Gerald was killed. Sorry by the Lenin refers to those people who came and collected the punishment upon the Bani Israel.
But these people how does Allah describe them?
That they were Li possessors off but sin might that is shoddy then severe. They were possessors of severe might the word but this is from the roof letters by Hamza seen
and but it says, you know is used for violence in particular war. And from this It's also used for torture for battle. strength, courage might. So these people were possessors of great strength, great weapons and great power.
They were very strong in the military sense. They were extremely courageous. They did not fear anyone. They were very harsh, very violent, very oppressive.
And because of that, when they came to attack the Bani Israel What did they do for Jesu Illallah dia. So they probe inside their homes. They went they penetrated inside your homes in order to kill you.
Jesse was on the route Petrus g was seen. And they were Joe's is to get into, to enter into and reach the midst of something to reach the midst of something.
And from the subtlety used for entering a person's house for the purpose of plunder for the purpose of facade in order to commit theft in order to kill the people of the house. This is what Joseph is. So for Jesu, so they entered Finland. Finland is a plural of the word Holland. And Holland is the gap between things.
So they entered into the gaps of what are the out of the houses at the outers of Florida.
And that is house home.
And the plural, a Dr. It doesn't just refer to houses, but it refers to an entire population,
a city, a village. Why? Because over there people are living together in their houses. So these people when they came to attack you What did they do jassal vilella deal, meaning they penetrated into your cities. They didn't just remain in the battlefield to fight with you. But rather they went into your residences into your populations, they entered into them. And they went into the midst of your houses. And remember at the address, the city, so they went into the streets, killing people out in the open in public. And according to others for Jazakallah dr means that they went inside your houses, even in search in order to kill you to make sure that none of you would remain alive.
Just imagine if a city is attacked like this. Just imagine if a nation is attacked like this.
That is not just that they're being fought in the battlefield. But that the enemy, they attack inside the houses, they go into the streets, into the roads into the houses going through the rooms, one room after the other into the basements into the closets to see that is there even one person alive and if there is kill him finishing for Joseph Ilana do, they didn't spare anybody. They killed every single person whom they saw what kind of Warden and that is a promise marulan want to be done want to be accomplished? Meaning this was a promise that Allah had made for your punishment if you committed this great facade.
Now, what was the facade the Bani Israel committed at this point? And why were they punished so severely?
We know that the Bani Israel, Allah subhanaw taala had bestowed many favorites upon them. As we learned that the Bani Israel they had been oppressed by for their own for such a long time. Musa alayhis salam came he freed them.
And from Egypt, they went all the way back to Jerusalem, a sham
And remember that while they were on their way, they spent 40 years in the wilderness. Why? Because there were still many, many deficiencies in those people.
And when they were made to enter the city, what did they say we're not going to enter you and your Lord Musa go and you fight. We're sitting right here, we're not going to fight these people.
Eventually, they did enter under the leadership of who you should have been the student or massage listener.
So, eventually, when they entered the city, initially, things were good.
However, very soon, the B'nai Israel, they fell into many differences. They became disunited.
And we learn that the nation was divided into two, the Bani Israel they were divided into two, that entire nation was divided into two. And as a result of that, they fought one another. They continue to fight one another, and they became extremely weak. It was in the 926 BC, that their kingdom was divided into the north part and into the southern part.
And this continued for a few several years. And in 605 BC, we learned that the Babylonian Empire, it began to force Australia to submit. So the Babylonians they attack the Bani Israel.
And initially, it was that they appointed someone from the Bani Israel above them as a viceroy to collect the taxes from the Bani Israel. But the Bani Israel refused to accept that they rebelled. And when they rebelled, what happened? The Babylonian king, he attacked the Bani Israel, and who was that both an assault
and when he attacked, when he attacked, he did not spare even a single person, as many as he could. He took them as captives. And the rest of them, they were killed. They were brutally assassinated, in their streets in their houses, which is why we learned originally Indiana Urbana, they were expelled from their houses, and their children were massacred.
It is said that any person who was known do have memorized the thota he was found and killed.
So the book was burnt, the temple was destroyed. And no one who knew the Delta remained alive.
Except for only one child. It is said that he was a sinner, one child who knew that all and later on, when the money Israel were freed. That is when he came and he rewrote it. And he was also bestowed with Prophethood.
Now why did this happen? What kind of facade exactly were these people doing?
We learned about the Bani Israel that they killed many prophets, isn't it? So? They killed many prophets. They were given the Scripture, they were given the Book of a last panel data. But what did they do with that? You have the phone and kalama on mobile theory. They distorted the book, they altered the book, they kept on changing the book, they did not abide by the Torah.
They would change the laws for the rich, and they would enforce them upon the poor, for some semonin carnelian they would change the law of Allah subhanaw taala. And if a prophet if a righteous person warned them, they would go and assassinate him.
We know that they killed their career alesana they killed your hair hustler. They tried to kill a side hustler. They accused Maria Maria Assalam as well.
So they committed many crimes like this. And when they committed this great facade, the loss of penalty, punish them as well.
So this was a first instance when the Bani Israel committed great facade and as a result of that they were punished.
When they were punished, what happened?
Some monada dinner, then we gave back then we returned rather than from the rule, Tetris law that the law come to you and come letter, the return victory. I'll come from the roof after scaffold auto and the crawl, what does it mean repetition to come back to recur? Do repeatedly come
and gala is during a return recurrence, a turn to prevail a turn to be victorious.
So we returned the color do you I lay him against them?
Meaning we gave back to you a return victory over them. If we take the opinion that it was dilute who came and attacked the Bani Israel. It was Gerald and his people. Then what happened? After some time Allah subhanaw taala gave that power to the Bani Israel and under
The leadership of tyloo they went and fought Duluth. Correct? And what happened? Well Atilla de Budo jelutong, Duluth, Arizona, killed, dilute. So some more other than Allah Kemal kabwata la, we give you victory over your enemy, we're under the knuckle and we reinforce to under the net from the root address meme that muda Yang would
be unwilling with World War Bernina and sons, that we increased you, we reinforce to you with a lot of wealth and a lot of children,
which are unnatural, and we made you act on a funeral more in your number in your manpower.
The word in the fetus and through veterans moonflower
and nephele is understood as a singular of the word neph.
With a fatter on the fat, and what is enough of a group of people, and generally is used for a group of people that a number between three and 10,
which is why this word applies to the clan of a person, the members of your Kabila of a clan, the people who are closest to a person.
So we made you axon a pharaoh more in your numbers in your manpower, more than who more than your enemy,
or more than you were before. Before Bunny is fine, we're only a few in number. And when their enemy attacked them, finished, only a few survived. But when Allah subhanaw taala gave them the victory again, Allah increased their numbers for them. He gave them more power, he gave them more people. How that when Duluth was victorious, after him What happened? Oh, there it is. And then Allah Subhana, Allah gave him mulk and Hickman he became the Prophet, and he was also the king after him came who, after him came Who? Solomon anissina and he was also a king as well as a prophet.
So then the Bani Israel reached a period of great height, great success.
What do we learn from this, that it is not difficult for our last panel data to change the situation of the people.
We see that Bani Israel, they were perfectly fine, perfectly fine. But when they began committing facade, Allah subhanaw taala took the worldly blessings away from them completely. They were deprived of their freedom. They were deprived of their country, their prestige, their honor was taken away from them.
And then when they realize their mistake, when they repented, Allah subhanaw taala changes situation again, it's not difficult for Allah to change the situation of a person overnight, within minutes within moments, it's not difficult for him at all.
We learned that when the Bani Israel, they were expelled by both the NASA or dilute whatever opinion we follow whoever game against them, when they were expelled by that King when they were killed when they were massacred. When their temple was destroyed. When their book was destroyed, they realized they had done something wrong and they were offended to a loss of parameter.
And when they repented a loss of penalty to help them again.
And when he helped them he gave them more than what they had before. We're under the narrow can be unwell in what they need, which are a lack of effort on appeal. What's the lesson in this for us?
That those people who accept their mistakes those people who turn to Allah in repentance, seeking His forgiveness, then Allah subhanaw taala What will you do? We will give them better than what they had before.
Then Allah will grant them success.
And this also shows to us that while we have the blessings, what should we do? We should be grateful for them. We should never become too arrogant about them. Because if we do so Allah can easily take away the blessings from us.
