Al-Kahf 9-26 Word Analysis and Tafsir 23-26
Are the below him in a SharePoint Julius Malema Rahim?
lesson number 151 sudo. conf. And we'll begin from ayah. Number 23.
What are the colon Elisha him
and never say about anything that in the Fairyland Indeed, I will do that there Lika that Warden tomorrow,
never say about something that I will do that tomorrow for sure. In law except an inertia of law that Allah wills.
In other words, whenever you say that you are going to do something tomorrow, condition that with the will of Allah, say, if Allah wills, only then I will be able to do this tomorrow. If you look at it, in these ayat, we're learning about the story of the people of the cave. And at the conclusion of the story, a loss of data is telling us many lessons that we can learn
of those lessons is that a person should not say that I will do something tomorrow, except by conditioning it with the will of a loss of panel data.
How do we learn this lesson? Where do we learn it from? It has been reported that the people of Makkah, they asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about the people of the cave.
They asked him about the US hamburger.
And so he said to them, that I will tell you about it tomorrow. I will tell you about the story when tomorrow because he was expecting that a loss of penalty will reveal to him concerning them.
And he did not add the words inshallah. So what happened the way it did not come to him for 15 days.
And he was made to wait for that whole time. And then eventually, when these ayat were revealed, at the end the prophets are a lot of them will start that never say about anything that I will do it tomorrow, except by conditioning it with the will of Allah subhanaw taala. And obviously, this lesson is also for us.
Now remember that there are two types of statements. When it comes to informing someone that I will do such and such in the future. There are two types of statements. One is Hubbard, and what is Hubbard me to inform someone, like for example, you're telling someone I'll just come downstairs? Are you telling someone, I'll go get the food, I'll come to the car, I'll meet you at the car, or I'll carry my bag. Now this is everyday stuff that you were just informing the other person about. You have already intended to do it, isn't it? When you tell someone I'll come downstairs you have already made up your mind.
And when you make up your mind to do something that is only possible by the will of Allah, what does Allah subhanaw taala say? Well Masha una Illa Anisha you can ever will for something unless Allah wills. So if you have made up your mind to do something already, that is only possible by the will of Allah. So if you're telling someone, I'll just come downstairs, you don't need to say insha Allah every time. Okay? It is not necessary. Because some people go to one extreme, which is on every little thing. Insha Allah insha Allah insha Allah, sometimes if you're reading some people's emails, at the end of every sentence at the beginning of every sentence in sha Allah,
remember that statements that are horrible, that you're just telling someone about something, which is everyday stuff, and you've already made up your mind to do it. And it's not really a big deal, then for that you do not need to say insha Allah every time.
But the second type of statement is that when you intend to do something, but you do not know when exactly you will do
or you do not know whether you will be able to do it or not. Why? Why is it like that? You intend to do something you don't know if you'll be able to do it. You don't know when exactly you will be able to do it. Why? Because it depends on other factors,
Like for example, you tell someone, I will come to your house tomorrow I'll have my father dropped me. Now when you're telling the other person about this, what do you have to say insha Allah, because you're coming to their house depends on what your father dropping you. It depends on other factors. And you don't know if that will be possible. It's beyond your ability.
And especially when you're promising someone when other people are involved. It's not an action that has to do only with yourself but other people are also involved. Then in that case, you have to say inshallah,
Say insha Allah.
So we should refrain from extremes. One extreme would be saying in Shaolin, every little thing, that is not appropriate. Another extreme would be that we don't have the intention to do what we're saying, but we just say inshallah, just to assure the other person even that is not appropriate. That is misusing the name of Allah soprano Donna.
And we see that what happened with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and the incident also happened with Suleiman or his son and that he intended to do something and he did not say inshallah, and he was not successful in what he intended to do.
Now, we see that no matter who a person is, no matter what his rank is,
no matter how biased he is, how righteous he is, he must realize that certain things are beyond his ability. And he can only accomplish some things when Allah subhanaw taala allows him to do
and if such is the case with the righteous with the prophets, then it is more so with the more ordinary meaning with us. That if the Prophet is told to say in sha Allah, then we are also required to do the same, we are also required to say inshallah, when we are promising someone or when we are intending to do something that is beyond our ability that depends on other factors.
Now, what's the benefit of saying inshallah, why should you say, john,
you're taking the will of Allah subhanaw taala into consideration, you are acknowledging the fact that ultimately things are not in your ability, things can only be done when Allah subhanaw taala allows, basically, there are two benefits of saying inshallah, when a person makes a promise, when he says inshallah, there are two benefits.
First of all, that when a person mentions the name of Allah, the will of Allah, that Allah will provide ease, and Allah will facilitate the accomplishment of that task.
Which is why we are told that whenever we begin something important, what should we say Bismillah R Rahman Rahim mentioned the name of Allah.
Because when a person mentions the name of Allah, then that will be a source of Baraka blessing.
And if a person is mentioning the name of Allah, then he is also asking for the help of Allah soprano.
So this is one big benefit. Because many times it happens that you say you're going to do something, but you're unable to do it, isn't it
and when you say, inshallah, then you have this confidence that, you know, inshallah, I will be able to do it.
And another benefit of seeing in Sharla is that if a person because of some reason he is unable to accomplish that task, he is unable to do what he said he was going to do, then he will not be breaking a promise. Why? Because he conditioned that with the will of Allah.
Like, for example, you tell someone, I'll come to your house tomorrow, I'll have my dad dropped me in Sharla.
Now, tomorrow, something happens, you're not able to go, your dad is not able to take you to your friend's house.
Now, in that case, you're not breaking the promise with your friend. Why? Because you said insha Allah, you conditioned it with the will of Allah. And Allah did not will for you to go there. He did not provide you the means to go there. So then you're not accountable for making a promise and breaking it. Because it was a condition, you set a condition with it.
So what's the lesson in this for us? That even when we intend to do something, when we are promising other people, when we're telling someone we're going to do something, what should we say, inshallah, to get the help of Allah and also so that we're not held accountable if because of some reason we are unable to do? What good Rebecca and mentioned your Lord, remember your Lord, what does it mean by this meaning say in sha Allah,
and what good Rebecca can also be understood as generally, that remember your Lord, when he then a Sita, when you forget, when you forget to say insha Allah, then later on, when you remember then what should you say, inshallah.
Like, for example, you telling your friend, I will come to your house tomorrow, at that time, you don't say inshallah, after five minutes, you're like, I didn't say inshallah, so at that time, say,
after one hour, you realize you didn't say inshallah, so at that time, what should you say, inshallah.
And scholars have said that it is also possible that years have passed by months have passed by and later you realize, I did not say in sha Allah, then you say inshallah,
because it happens, you intend to do something, you didn't say inshallah. And you try again and again, it doesn't happen. You try again.
And again it doesn't happen any wonder what did I do wrong?
Now it's possible you did not say inshallah. So as soon as you realize, say inshallah, at that time
and we can also understand this in a general sense that what could Rebecca Ivana see that every time you forget, what should you do remember your Lord, never forget him
walk and say, I said, perhaps the NLRB that perhaps my Lord will guide me, the Colaba to near to closer main hair there than this Russia that invite conduct in guidance. Because as you know, that the people of Makkah they asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about the US herbal cough. So tell them that perhaps, hopefully, Allah will guide me to that which is closer to the truth than what you know of mean Heather than this meaning what you know.
And this will prove to be an evidence of my truthfulness. This will prove to be an evidence of my Prophethood
whether the zoo and they remain ficar for him in their cave. Allah subhanaw taala mentions the people of the cave again, that the US How long have they stayed in their cave For how long? salami 1370 years? They stayed in their cave for 300 years.
Was there though and they increased this sun? Nine
is there from the root letters? They Yeah, then the other and the other is increase.
What does that mean by this was their design.
This has been understood in two ways. First of all, it has been said that the people of the cave stayed in their cave for 300 years.
And the people, they added nine more years to it, saying that the US have will have stayed for 309 years. So in other words, there was a difference. So what is Allah say? Allah, Allah who are in a movie malabu say Allah is most knowing of how long they stayed. People differ Some say 300 Some say 309? Some say more, some say less. So what's the answer? Allah knows, there is no point in discussing this. Because even if you do a lot of research, a lot of study, you will not be able to figure out who knows the exact number. Allah subhanaw taala knows, so leave it with him.
Others have said that what this means is that whenever a Sufi caffee him, says me, I think singing the people of the cave stayed in the cave for 300 years was their do and they extended the Hubble have extended their stay in the cave with how many years dishon nine years.
So, this is a way of saying that they stayed in their cave for 309 years.
Because you see in Arabic language, if you have a number such as 309, you will not say 309.
If you have a number such as 950, you will not say 951 of the style, this 1000 minus 5300 plus nine
Do you get it? Do you understand? Which is why even with Newhart s&m, it is mentioned 1000 minus 50.
cemetery similarly over here, instead of saying 309 what is mentioned 300 and they exceeded it by nine. So in total, the people of the cave stayed in the cave for 309 years
old say Allahu Allah, Allah is most knowing.
So what Allah is informing us over here, that the people of the game state for 309 years, that is the correct opinion. Because Allah is telling us and Allah is our lemma, he is most known.
So even if you find contradicting reports, still, who should you believe a loss
because law who labels somehow what you will owe To Him belongs the unseen of the heavens and the earth.
He knows what is hidden within the heavens, and he knows what is hidden within the earth. He knows what happened in the past, what will happen in the future, what is happening now. He alone knows law who labels somehow what you will have.
So if he is telling you that they stayed for 309 years, you should believe that
I was going to be how seeing is he was a smear and how hearing how well he sees and how good he hears
Because of this, he knows how long these people stayed. Therefore, believe in what Allah is telling you
the words obviously to be he was a smear, these words are off of our target. They're off of our job. The start give me amazement. So it's a verb of wonder, a verb of amazement. We learned earlier about the Bani Israel family, us borrow
from a hospital, that how patient they are over the fire. They know that they will be in there it's early, but how patient they are. What has made them so patient.
So my upasana mouse bottle. Similarly, Matt, I will say, these are what of our job verbs of amazement. They express amazement, they express wonder.
And I will swear to be that how excellent he sees how good he sees who Allah soprano. How excellent he sees that, even if there is a black and that is crawling on a black rock, in the blackness of the night who can see it. Allah subhanaw taala can see.
And if there's something that is smaller than that black end, or something more hidden, and more minute, then it even that is visible to who almost
what the eyes of people cannot perceive a loss upon garlic and see, elbows will be a smear, and how well he hears that he hears everything, the secret, the private, the concealed the public, every word that is uttered. Allah subhanaw taala hears it
into the for her eye number seven, Allah says we're in such a horrible Kohli for in the huya. Alamo Silla.
And if you speak aloud, then indeed, he knows the secret. And what is even more hidden. He knows the secret, and also what is more hidden. Because it's possible that you say something out loud. And then you whisper something. And then you just keep something in your heart. You don't even whisper it. You don't even say it. You don't even write it. You don't even show it. But Allah subhanaw taala can hear everything, the conversation that is going on in your mind, the conversation that is going on in your tongue, the conversation that is going on on your phone, Allah can hear everything, what a smear, how excellent he hears.
So, why is this mentioned over here that nothing can escape a lost sight and nothing can escape his hearing. Therefore, his knowledge is complete and the knowledge of others is incomplete.
manner whom they do not have meaning the people of the heavens and the earth they do not have Min dooney besides Allah subhanaw taala muhuali Yin anyway, they are so dependent on him that they have no Wali besides Allah soprano,
when he is from the root letters, well, yeah.
And wilaya What is wilayah guardianship, protection, help assistance, this is of two types.
First of all, it is
and a loss of penalties which in one way is general for all creation. How that he protects, he preserves, he provides, he nourishes them, he has subjected everything for human beings.
Which is why Allah subhanaw taala is the molar he is the Wali of who everyone Allah subhanaw taala says, some will do in a law him Allah who will help then they will be returned to Allah who is their molar in truth? Who is their guardian in truth?
So every person whether he believes or disbelieve Who is he going back to Allah subhanaw taala. So in one way, Allah Allah is general it is armed for everyone.
But the second type of will is hustle,
exclusive or special will I have friendship? And that is With who? With those who believe in it.
That is exclusively for such people. As we have learned in total Baccarat Allah who will lead you Latina Amano, Euclid homina rometty illa knew
that Allah is the Wali of those people who believe and he takes them out of the darkness into the light.
So, over here when he went to Las palletizers rally in hospital, how do we understand that, that when a loss friendship is especially for someone, what does that mean? That Allah will open the doors of beneficial knowledge for him? That Allah will know
Give him the ability to do I'm going to sorry that he will set his affairs right for him.
So over here when Allah says, Man or woman do nimi Willie, they do not have any worry besides a loss of title. This is both, um, as well as hasa. That people, they do not have anyone else to depend on. Who can they take their nourishment from?
anyone besides Allah, it's not possible. Who can seek help from anyone else besides Allah? It's not possible.
When I usually go, and he does not associate the hook me in his decision, I hadn't anyone at all. No one has a share in his hook at all, no one at all. Notice a word I had. Not an angel, not a prophet, not a human, no being shares with Allah in His decision.
Meaning any decision that Allah makes, it comes from him exclusively. hokum over here has been used. And how come of Allah is of two types? First of all, how come that is Kony, the decisions of Allah with regards to his creation. So for instance, if Allah decides to send rain, Could anyone have a share in that that are less than only this muttering or stop the rain now? Turn it into snow now? Is it possible? Can anyone ever share in that no one at all.
Secondly, hokum includes Sheree aka
the laws that Allah has given in religion, that people must follow, that people must observe. And because of this, all the commands they come from Allah
and if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us anything, that was also by whose approval unless
and if there was anything that was inappropriate, the profits are of origin was corrected immediately, when he made something how long upon himself, he was forbidden Lima to have removed that Hello, ma hulak. Why do you make unlawful what Allah has made lawful, you should not be changing the law.
And because the hokum Sheree also belongs exclusively to Allah. This is why no one is allowed to invent things in the religion
because law usually could be hooked me ahead. A lot does not let anyone have a share in decision making, whether county or shuttering.
So what's the conclusion of the story from these last is that we learned
that all knowledge is with
a loss of
all power is with a loss of power. And ultimately the decision also belongs to a loss.
Therefore, a person must accept what Allah is saying, what Allah is commanding, and he must submit to the commands of Allah.
And the people of the cat have their story illustrates that in a way
that they went to sleep over there for some time. But Allah subhanaw taala is Hollywood. Allah MD, he is the one who dominates over his affair he can do whatever he wishes,
they went to sleep for some time alone made them see for 309 years. The King wish to stop people from believing in a loss of paradise. But look, that the entire scene change, everybody began to believe in a loss and
the people doubted the resurrection, but look at how Allah subhanaw taala proved the resurrection to them.
So ultimately, all knowledge all decision all power belongs to who? Allah subhanaw taala exclusively.
There are more lessons that we learned from this story, which are continued in the following. Essentially, when we do the next lesson, we will reflect more, but before then we will listen to the recitation
We need to understand the meaning of inshallah, and use this phrase appropriately, not misuse it. And at the same time understand that if we fully intended to do something, and we said inshallah, and if it doesn't happen, then we should know that there was some wisdom in it. There's some benefit in it, because we conditioned it with the will of Allah. And if it didn't happen, since relax, don't worry, don't argue don't fight. Because ultimately, all matters are we to Allah, He is the one who decides, no matter what you say, no matter what you want to do. Allah does not give you the right to make a decision, in the sense that you cannot execute whatever you wish ultimately, it's the will of
Allah. Allah usually could be hooked me, I had.
Let's listen to the recitation.
