Ash-Shuara 105-140 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 110-122
But duckula we're up to your only so fear Allah and obey me. Again, new Alison, I'm saying the same thing. He's repeating it again, because this was the essence of his teachings. And this was the essence of the teachings of all of all of the messengers that have fear of Allah and obey the messengers.
Now this was what new had s&m said to the people. What was their response? Their response was carlu. They said, No, me no laka Shall we listen to you? Whatever comes out of the room, while you are followed by the lowest class of the people.
I know me no lakka. Not me. No. Amana Eman? What does it mean to believe? And when the word Eman is followed by lamb like mini laka? Then what does it mean to listen to someone to accept what they're saying?
To obey them? So shall we obey you? Shall we just accept what you're telling us to do? Shall we just follow your command that you're telling us to fear Allah and obey you. So shall we just listen to you? While the fact is that whatever aka alone, while the last class of people are actually your followers, and also known as a plural of other than from the roof address, but ah, that no. And Levine is someone who is very lowly, someone who does not have any worth someone who is despicable. So out of then most despicable, the lowest of the people, someone who does not have any rank, any position, any value in the sight of people.
So for example, in worldly terms of the lunar view, someone who was at the lowest class, in many societies, and even today, people have this class system.
In many ways people have made this class system, in certain societies, it's according to your race. In other societies, it's according to your income. If you make this much bigger Saturday, then you belong to this class of people. If you make more than that, then you belong to this class of people. Then in other societies, according to profession, it's according to the area that you live in. It's according to the family that you belong to. So out of the loner who the lowest of the people, they have the lowest income, they live in the most contemptible places, their social circle is of the lowest class. So whatever I call out alone, the poor people, the incompetent people, the weak ones,
they're the ones who follow you. So what was the response of the people that how can we believe in you? While your followers are the most inferior of us? They're the most inferior of us. If you look at it, what was the messenger telling them? What duckula earlier only fear Allah and obey me? And what is the response of the people? Look at your followers?
What was he telling them? And what are they saying, in response? He's calling them do obeying a law. And they are saying your followers are not good. We don't like your followers. Why? Because people who have the love of dunya in their hearts, people who want to make more and more dunya then what happens? They consider Deen they view the from a worldly point of view as well. How that they think that if we believe what were the benefits are we going to get? If we learn this, then what were the benefits are we going to get if I go and work here for the then how much worldly benefit Am I going to get?
Who are going to be my friends who are going to be my contact? So we my supporters,
this is what such people think about. Whereas on the other hand, a person who has the love of the deen in his heart, then what happens? His goal is only to say that he he does not care about the wealth of the people. He does not care about the status of the people. He does not care about which kind of people come from which background from which race from which culture from which ethnicity. No, he is there for the deen. That is his focus. That is his goal. So he will only come for that. But people who come for dunya what happens? they analyze the deen from a worldly perspective as well. So these people this afternoon Hello Sam, we cannot follow you. Because your followers are who
they're out of the loop. And if we sit with them, it's going to lower our status. If we befriend them, it's going to lower our status.
So, in order to keep our highest status do better
We cannot believe in you, we cannot accept you. We cannot listen to you.
If you look at it previously musasa when he spoke to Fidel, instead of focusing on the message, what did he do? He started distracting others. Ibrahim Hassan was well, when he was telling the people started getting distracted by other things over here also know how Listen, I was telling them one thing and the people are responding in a completely different way. So no, hello Sam, what does he do? What is his response? Allah? He said, What am I really? And what is my knowledge? Bhima? Can we are alone of what they used to do? What does it mean by that? b Mac and Milan? b Macedonia Milan has been understood in a number of ways that first of all, the people whom you consider to be out of the
loon be Macedonia or Milan, what is it that they do? Meaning? Marry me, I do not have knowledge of I'm not concerned about knowing what these people do. I'm not concerned about finding out how these people make money. What kind of works these people do.
I have not been sent to check the worldly status of people. I have not been sent to do a background check on the people. My message is for all, so we're married me B McCann we are modern, whatever worldly professions these people have, I have no concern with that.
Whether it is of a lower class or an upper class, I have no concern with that. When we're in America, and we are middle. Secondly, that what do I know? Meaning I'm not concerned about the Macedonia or Milan of their motives.
My job is not to check the motives of the people as to why they're coming to me
that you think they're coming, because they're alone. And they're coming so that they can make more dunya they're coming to get some worldly benefits. I have no idea as to why these people are coming, I am to judge people on their surface, I am to deal with them on the apparent.
So no highness and me tells the people who respond to them. That I do not know of the worldly professions of these people. I'm not concerned about their status. I'm not concerned about their positions, their occupations, I don't know much about them. Because my job is to convey the message to the people. My job is not to check, who does what, how much money do they make, which house they live in? What family they belong to know, my job is to simply convey the message.
What lesson does this teach us?
That when a person is calling people to Allah, then his message should be for him. For all people. He should not be selective, that no, I only talk to these kinds of people. I only address the educated class, or I'm only concerned about the poor people. I only talk to this race. I only talk to people from this country, and people from that country. I don't care about them. My message is not for them. I'm not concerned about them. No. The Diary is someone whose messages for who for all people. No matter what worldly class they belong to, no matter what grades they belong to, no matter what worthy profession they have. It's for all people. And when a person is conveying the message of
Allah, he should not be focusing on the status of the people the occupation of the people. That Yes, so many rich people come over here are so many educated people come over here. No, this should not be the concern. The concern should be that ye should deliver the message of Allah to the people. That should be the focus.
Just as we learned earlier, that Allah subhanaw taala does not look at the outer state of the person, but what the inner state of the person. Similarly, we are not to judge people in the sense that just because they have a particular occupation, or just because they work in a particular place, we will give them more important and if they're not of that type, we will give them less important. No, the message is for everybody. It is for every person.
And anyone who comes to learn the knowledge of the deen It is our responsibility that we must teach them we must convey to them without any bias. Because unfortunately, no matter how much we came to be sometimes free of any biases. We have many biases amongst us that just because a person is from a particular race, just because a person is not from that country, or he has not had this kind of education, what happens, we tend to undermine people we tend to belittle them we tend to not hold them in high respect. And if a person is very bad and is a flop but just because he's very rich, by the way that he's dressed up, we give them so much importance.
Just because a person you know has studied from particular school we give them so much importance. So, ultimately the diary should remember that my message is for everybody, I should not be focusing on the pockets of people on the appearances of people, I should be focusing on what delivering the message.
So women are in me, V McCann, we are in Milan, I'm not concerned with what these people do otherwise,
in his album, their account, in their lobby, Lotus room, is only upon my Lord, if you could perceive in his elbow home, the result of these people are the people who come to me whom you consider to be alone. Their account, the judgment of their real merit is upon who Allah says
that you consider them to be of the Loon. But what is their real status? What is their actual position? Allah knows about them. You consider them to be very low and despicable, but Allahu Ireland, they may be better than you. Or you say that they're coming over here to make more money. They're coming over here to become equal to you. Allah knows about their real motives, Allah knows about their real intentions. In his album, Illa, Allah Robbie and he will recompense them accordingly. lodash alone, if only you will proceed, If only you knew that Allah is the one who knows the pattern of people, that Allah is the one who will recompense the people, Allah is the one
who knows the actual position and status of the people.
Normally what happens, people will look down upon others, they consider themselves to be very smart,
that we're so intelligent, we're so superior. We're so good looking. We're so educated, we're so wealthy, and they consider themselves to be very smart. But what do we learn over here, that if a person goes on judging people like this, then he's not actually using his mind lodash alone. If you had your rule, if you use some reason, if you use your eyes in mind, then you would understand that the real status of people is only known to who, to my Lord,
woman. And I am not beautiful. It didn't mean at all, one who drives away the believers. But it bought it from the newsletters, thought that thought and thought is to throw something far away, out of thinking it to be despicable. As of thinking it to be unimportant, you don't give it any value. You don't assign it any important. So what do you do? You just discard it, you throw it away.
So the people they requested new Harrison, that you ask these out of the loop to go away.
And when you ask them to go away, then we will come and listen to you. This is just like how the people of Makkah What do they ask the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to do? To send vilella descend all of those people who had believed in Him who were of a lower social status. They asked that they should go away, and only then they will come and listen to the prophets.
But what did new halozyme say to them? Why am I never thought he didn't want me? I am never ever going to drive away these believers, from where? From my mother's from my gathering, or from my sight, distancing myself from them. I never want to distance myself from them. Why? Because ultimately, who are they? They're believers. And if you think them to be despicable, who are they? They're believers and in a coma, coma in the lie, a taco.
In an IM NOT Ilana do mubin except a clear warning. My duty is only to convey, and I am clearly a warner. I am not a judge. I'm not here to analyze the social status of people. I'm not here to treat them differently based on their social class. No, to get to the point Who am I now veto moving I am a clear warning towards all people, people of upper class people of lower class, people who are wealthy people who are not wealthy people who are educated people who are not educated, no matter who they are. My warning is for all people. I have been sent as a warning.
And whoever believes me, obeys me and follows me.
So these people, they have believed in me, they follow Me therefore I'm never going to distance myself away from them. So what do we learn in these is
that the religion of Allah subhanaw taala is for who it is for all people, every single person, regardless of his age,
because sometimes we don't let people benefit because of their age. We say they're too old, or we say they're too young.
But regardless of
The age of the person regardless of the gender of the person, because sometimes what are people don't, this is not for women, this is only for men, women cannot understand
regardless of age, regardless of gender, regardless of background, because sometimes we think only a person is educated enough, then only he will learn. And if a person is not educated enough, you will not be able to benefit at all.
But sometimes you see people who are not as educated, their understanding is far better than the understanding of those who are maybe highly educated.
You will sometimes see their armor changing more, you see them more fearful of Allah, you see them. Having memorized more of the Quran, you see them being able to relate with their lives more of the Quran.
So regardless of the age, regardless of the gender, regardless of the background, regardless of the race of the person, the social status of the person, the deen of Allah is for who it's for every single person, every human being, every individual.
And the fact is that there is no class system in our religion. There is no social hierarchy. All people are equal in the sight of Allah. And a person will have a higher rank in the sight of Allah based on what based on his taqwa not based on his worldly status, not based on the number of his children, not based on the number of his degrees. No, it's based on what his taqwa how much he fears Allah, and how much is it that he follows the religion.
And we see that because of this noble characteristic of our religion, that this religion is for all people. What do we see that people from various backgrounds, various backgrounds, they're the ones who accept this religion,
especially people from the lower class, they accept, they follow? Why?
Because they're not discriminated.
They come willingly, because they're not discriminated. We see that in Makkah, also, which people were amongst the first ones to become Muslim.
It was those who are of a lower class. It was the women, it was the week it was a slaves. Why, because for the first time ever, they were not being discriminated.
And this is a very, very noble quality of this religion of ours.
I remember there was a friend of mine, her father, he had a huge reasons martial law, very wealthy people. And they had several servants in their house, male servants as well. And I remember many, many times that I would go to see her, I would find that he would be praying along with his servants, because they were like at least six or seven men who would work in his house, as drivers or whoever. And sometimes he would be leading the Salah, and sometimes another one of them would be leading. And it was amazing that someone have such a high social class is praying right next to someone who is working for him. And it was amazing. So when does this come into a person when he is
When he is truly realized that he is a servant of a low and he is truly realize that all people are equal in the sight of Allah. The only thing that makes me better is my
there are many people who have done great things for the dean. But if you look at their worldly education, it's not that much. They've only perhaps done primary school or middle school or something like that.
My grandmother, she was telling me yesterday about my grandfather, he was also a great scholar of his time. And she was saying about how he went to only primary school, he studied only about up to grade six or something like that. And beyond that, he could not study because every time he would go to school, he would fall sick. He would go to school, he would fall sick, he would come back home, you'll be perfectly fine. You go to school again, he would fall sick, come back home perfectly fine. So he stopped going to school.
And then he would just be at home helping out his father. And one day his father said, You know what, make use of your life, go do something. So he left, he left his house. And it was a very, very long time ago, and he walked all alone by himself. He walked from one village to the other to the other village until finally, he reached a school where he learned how these and he learned how these in one year he read all six books. All six books in one year, at the beginning of the year, there are many, many students. And by the end, there were only three. And he is the one when he took his exams, he got 51 out of 50. So everybody asked, How did you get 51 on 50. So the teacher he said
that whatever he wrote was perfect. But his writing was so beautiful, that I could not give him an extra mark. If I did not give him an extra mark, it would be unfair.
And I was thinking about it that if you think about it, he only did a little bit of work.
Education, a little bit of worldly education. But Allah gave him that overview. And he managed to study all the six books of Hades in one year.
And he would not be able to go back home every now and then because every time you'd have to go, you would have to travel alone, obviously, we would come with you. There were no buses and not trains at that time that would come and go all of the time, it was very, very difficult to travel back and forth. And then after he completed his studies, he went back home, and he started teaching the children of the area, the Quran. And one night, one of the boys that he knew off, he became extremely ill, he got pneumonia, and the next morning, he passed away. So he realized that I have spent so many years studying the religion. And when a person becomes sick, I cannot help him
that I could not save his life because I have no idea about medicine. So he went and studied medicine. And he found a teacher of medicine somewhere in another part of the country. And he went and studied medicine over there for three years. And then his teacher passed away during that time. And then, because of the family of the teacher, they were very dependent on their father. He did not leave them. He stayed over there. He served him for one year. And then he left he found another teacher, and then he completed his study of medicine. And then he was not only you know, somebody who taught religion to people, but also help them with regards to their health. And constantly I was
thinking back to myself that how much worldly education did he have? Not much. But what did he have this inner drive to help people. There's a desire to help people that they should learn the deen. And they should be healthy and good people. This motivated him to study medicine as well. So unfortunately, many times we tend to disregard people just because they don't have as much worldly education as much as we want them to have.
But we see that yes, that is important. Wealth is important. But what is more important is the inner drive, dislike musar listener. He was not that fluent in his speech. He had been working as a shepherd for the past 10 years. But still Allah selected him still he chose him, because what did he have the inner drive.
Over here, we see that no halozyme He says, Well, Matt and I, we thought it meaning I am not going to drive away the believers, that these people they come to me to learn. These people that come to my gathering to study to learn, I cannot push them away, I'm not going to be the one who sends them away. So the responsibility of the diary is that when people do come to learn,
no matter who they are, he should not be a means of driving them away. Like, for example, it's possible that a non Muslim comes to let's say, a lecture or conference or to a class or something like that. But with our behavior, we treat them in such a cold manner, or we tend to ignore them sometimes that they feel as if they are being rejected constantly. Or if somebody walks in without the appropriate dress. Or if somebody walks in without a uniform, sometimes what happens in our behavior, we tend to be very cold towards them. So this is a means of pushing people away.
So look at new Harrison, and that no matter what you say to me woman, and I've invited him in because in Atlanta, the Roma been my responsibility is to warn the people.
So it is a very, very important lesson, that when anyone comes to learn that the when anyone comes to find out about the our behavior should not be such that we rebel people, that we turn people away from the religion, we should try our best to accommodate them, we should try our best to treat them nicely. So that they are not repulsed.
Sometimes what happens, the way people are dressed the way people are behaving at the beginning, we think no way they can ever fit over here, they can never survive over here, send them back, don't let them come.
But the fact is that every person needs time.
And you will notice that at the beginning, sometimes people are very, very different. But as time goes by, they begin to understand, and automatically they begin to change. So if at the beginning, we become so harsh with them, when we say you don't belong here, then what's going to happen, people are going to go away, who's going to suffer, they're going to suffer, who is going to suffer the loss as well, you're going to suffer because you had the opportunity to benefit someone and you lost that opportunity.
So with our behavior with our words, in a manner that we deal with others, we should be very, very careful that people are not repulsed from the religion people are not turned away from the religion.
And also we see that sometimes if a person walks in, who may speak a different language, who may be from a different country who may be of a particular race for
some reason or the other, we consider them to be inferior.
And because of that, they feel they're not welcome.
They feel that they do not belong to that place.
And as a result, they get very turned off, they don't want to go there anymore. So we have to be very, very careful. Sometimes we only tend to greet those people who appear to be very wealthy, and somebody who's in a simple dress, we don't give them that much importance, whereas we see that the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was that he would greet the children, he would greet the elderly, he would greet everyone.
Similarly, what happens, people walk in, they do not know something, and we become so strict with them. Don't you know, you're not supposed to pray in this way, you're supposed to bring that way.
Because sometimes when we have learned about something, and we start imposing things on people, don't you know, sister, you should be wearing socks right now. And don't you know that your Avaya should be long, and you have too much glitter on your Avaya and your hijab is too small, our behavior should not be like that.
Our behavior should be welcoming, that treat them so good that they want to learn and when they will learn, their actions will change automatically. Show them with your behavior. Welcome them, so that they want to do what you're doing as well. And if you become crude and rough in your behavior, then what are people going to think? I don't want to become like this person, I'm never going to do what this person is doing. I'm never gonna wear what she's wearing. Just because of you, they might be stopped from something good.
Sometimes what happens people come in, and they may have certain weaknesses, they may have certain needs. And if we do not take care of those needs, if we don't help them accordingly, then they're going to feel discouraged.
And they're going to eventually give up. So our concern should be that everyone should be able to learn this religion, this should be our desire. Every person who we come across should be able to learn something. And if that becomes your desire, then Allah will show you Allah will teach you as to how to help them.
But if your goal is just your comfort, and your own convenience, and your own standards, then you will not be able to help people to do something very, very important.
We see that in the Quran, we learn in terms of health I number 28, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was told was with nafsa morality Naya the owner of bombilla, that he will or she you do not
keep yourself in the company of those people who remember a line the morning and the evening, regardless of their worldly status.
Regardless of how people consider them to be, you have to give them important you have to keep yourself in their company so that they can benefit and you can benefit.
In sort of an arm if 52 we learn well, editora de La Nina, the owner of boom belladati What are she you need to know which her and do not send away those people who call upon their Lord morning and afternoon seeking His countenance? Do not turn them away? So what do we learn so far, about the incident of the people of New Harrison, that new hire Sam, he invited them in very clear terms. But what was the reaction of the people they did not want to accept because they did not want to lose their worldly status.
Sometimes we have this bias against people that because they're dressed up in a particular way, they have no hide in them. They're never going to listen. I remember my mom's teacher, when he came to visit us once. We were all sitting in one place. And this lady came. And she wasn't dressed appropriately at all. So she just came to greet him because she thought Oh, this is a status teacher. So let me just go into Salaam and she just came as a visitor and she just gave walked in and no hijab dressed not appropriately at all. And she just went in greeted him. And what was his response? He spoke only Arabic And he knew only a little bit of English and he said while he como
Salaam, how are you? And he had a conversation with her just a little bit in English. And she felt so comfortable that she just sat down a little bit at a distance in order to just listen to what he was saying.
And I was thinking when we come across such people we give them the eyes we give them the look and we show them you know you're not dressed properly and I don't want to see you you don't belong here and we don't know which reaction of ours might have a good effect on someone be welcoming be accepting lower your gaze but talk to them properly.
Talk to them properly you never know they might be able to benefit.
So what did the people have no handsome say to know how to sell them or do they set like a lamp into here? No. Oh no. If you do not stop right here. Let akuna nominal module mean, then surely you will be among those who are stoned. Module mean florala
module from the root letters of law g mean legit
And Roger stone someone to death. And module is also someone who is cursed someone who is criticized. So Rajim is both by stones as well as by words. If you don't stop, we're going to kill you, or you're going to hear it from us.
This is very similar to what the Father would put on humanist and I'm setting
the LM 20. The abdomen.
And this is very similar to what fit our own set to Masada center. What did he say? That if you don't stop, you will be must do neither of those were in prison. So what happened? No Harrison and then he turned to Allah. And he prayed Allah He said, Robbie, oh my lord in comida de booni. Indeed, my people have denied me. They're not gonna listen to me anymore.
When did he say that?
after a very long time.
And what did he do when he faced the denial of people? He turned to Allah and this is a character of the messenger when people threatened him. He does not threaten back when people speak evil. He does not speak evil in return what either haha mahamudra Luna carcinoma? Well, it has some your lover or the one who, when people annoy him, when they harm him, he does not fight back. Who does he turn to have a surprise. So he prayed to Allah, that first veiny avena home fatten, then judge between me and then with decisive judgment for further help have literally means to open something.
And from that the word feather is also used for victory. Why because when there is victory, then the gates are opened up for you.
And further is also used for decision what kind of a decision such a decision that clarifies between right and wrong, which does not leave either of the groups in doubt. So first, baney Robaina whom clearly judge between us so that the truth is distinguished from the false when a genie and save me, woman, Maria, and whoever that is with me, many, many of the believers meaning save all of us believers.
We learned that new Allison and he made this after a very, very long time, after almost a millennium. And also he made there are when when they threatened him, when he felt that his life was in danger. Then he prayed to Allah against the people.
We learned into a new hire 26 that will call a new home or have bilateral or liminal catharina the year that new said, My Lord Do not leave upon the earth from among the disbelievers even one inhabitant, meaning finish all of them.
We don't incertitude is 36 that allows Panther that all new Han s&m we're all here Eleanor hain and the hula minimun komikko in lemon, lemon falletta is when I can we have argued it was revealed to new heinessen that no one is going to believe now from your people, except those people who have already believed. Now no one is going to believe so do not be distressed by what they have been doing. So what happened then, for Angelina who, so he saved him wama Mara who and whoever was with him were filfil key in the ship that was Alma shown that was led and we saved all of them in relationship. And my shown is from the roof letters, she had noon. What's the structure? My rule, so

And my shown mufe rule, one that is laden one that is fully loaded, filled with people filled with obviously the ship was filled with animals as well as birds to its maximum. So they were saved and what an unfulfilled mushroom some rock and then we drowned by developing thereafter. The remaining ones by riddle meaning after saving the believers who was drowned Albert being the remaining ones being those people who remain behind who did not embark on the ship who did not believe in New hedison and what happened to them. They were destroyed how that they were drowned. We don't insert to the uncouth i a 14 to 15 what are

What does a great affliction refer to the flood and also the opposition the denial
in a fever Nicola is indeed in that is a sign woman can have a thorough meaning but still most of them are not to be believers. What is the lesson in this incident?
What is the if that we learned from the story that success is only with email success is only with the
success is only with obedience to Allah soprano.
Who were successful after hell me noon and in total Baccarat What do we learn that delicacy tablao eva fieldwood la Motta clean and at the end, what do we learn what we learn human.
So who are successful? Those who have Eman, those who have Taqwa? Those who follow and obey the messengers? Ultimately, they're the ones who are successful. And if a person has everything of this world, everything, glory, well, highest status. But if he does not have email, if he does not have the fear of Allah, if he does not obey the messenger, can he be successful? He can never be successful.
And on the other hand, if a person has nothing of this world, he is considered as the loon but he believes in the messenger, he follows the messenger. He has the fear of a lot than that person. Is he successful? Yes, he is successful.
So ultimately, the key to success is the core Eman and
We're in North America, and indeed your Lord louella Aziza Rahim. Surely he is the mighty and also the merciful, because this incident also demonstrates the might of Allah in how he grasped the disbelievers, how He punished them and in how he aided the believers and it reflects his mercy as well towards towards the believers.
We listen to the recitation
