Al-Ankabut 16-30 Word-Analysis and Tafsir 16
Sounds a bit lame and uship on your legitimacy layer over here.
Lesson number 205. Solo to the ankle boot is number 16 to 23.
Whatever our Hema and Ibrahim reading Weisskopf, Ibrahim and mentioned Ibrahim, are they sin?
Whatever well appears at the beginning of an ayah, such as in this ayah what Abraham after well, while if there is an implied with God,
it's not mentioned, but it's implied. And what does good mean? mentioned that we're able to honor him and mentioned Abraham, and the purpose of not saying with God is, if the source to keep the Kalam brief, and also to give more importance to the subject at hand, because in too many words, what happens, the meaning gets lost, what is important, gets lost,
who has Ibrahim
Ibrahim in Assam, wasn't the messengers of Allah soprano data of those messengers who are known as Odin or as the prophets who had determination, the prophets of determination and it is said that there are five prophets who are willing to
the first of whom is Hamlet sought a lot of Solomon after him, Ibrahim Anissa and then after him musasa after him New Orleans and M and after him resigning sooner,
so this is the order that has been suggested by some of the scholars.
Even here in Assam. He was tested by a loss of panel data in many many ways. He is known as Cadena law. And he was tested in many ways as well. What do we learn from this? That just because someone is very righteous, doesn't mean that he will not be tested? No. As we learned earlier from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that those who were tested the most were who the Prophet of Allah, Ibrahim right Assam despite the fact that he was hiding Allah, Allah tested him. And mainly Allah subhanaw taala tested him in two ways. First of all, through Dawa in a law that when he had to call other people to Allah,
that was extremely challenging for him. Why? Because it was just him on one side and his entire nation on the other side.
And he proved the truth to them. He called them openly. But still What happened? His people, they managed to light a huge fire and actually throw him into the fire.
This was a huge test. Imagine if we were in that place? What would we think has Allah abandoned us? Where's his help? But Ibrahim alayhis salam, he didn't give up hope and what do we learn that Allah soprano Darla saved him, he helped him.
Another way through which Allah subhanaw taala tested Ibrahim Edison and was through those things are those people who are most beloved to Abraham.
And all of them were his son. First of all, his father, his father, what happened? He refused to believe Ibrahim right. They said I'm set as the hero Lockerbie, I will seek forgiveness for you from my Lord. And later on Ibrahim Edison, I was told not to do so.
On the day of judgment, he will request but still that will not be accepted. And then he had to leave his home. And then he had to leave his wife and his son. And then when his son is my real, when he reached the age of a sorry that he was able to run, he was able to walk, he had some strength. Abraham and his son was commanded by a las panatela to slaughter his son.
Just imagine that test. Just imagine, you are told to not leave your child,
but to slaughter him to pass a knife on his neck.
This is not easy.
Ibrahima his son was tested and what happened he submitted and Allah subhanaw taala rewarded him immensely for that. So the example of Ibrahim, right, so as mentioned over here, because even he was tested a lot in the way of Allah and in his life, and his stories, in his incidence is great inspiration for all of us. So wherever he and Ibrahim or insulin is on an economy, he, when he said to his people, who is the count of a person, the count of a person, are those people who are related to him.
Those people who are related to him, those people whom he lives with, he shares his mess up with them. Because literally count applies to a group of people that have something uniting them
to use for such a group of people that have something uniting them. Like for example, it could be their NASA, it could be their lineage. They all have the same lineage. They all have the same rate.
Or it could be their Deen their religion, their faith. They have the same religion as a result. They're the same.
Or for example, they have the same have the same goal, the same purpose in life and as a result they are alone. So he said to his home and who was his phone, the people that he lived amongst the people whom he was related with? What did he say to them? Or were the Lucha worship Allah, What the Who? And fear him? worship Allah meaning worship only him? And what the coup and fear Him, protect yourself from his punishment? Then he come highroller calm and that is better for you, what is better for you? worshiping Allah and having fear of Allah in contempt Allah mon if you only know
it well, here it is, sir. dollars people to do two things. First of all, we're Budo. And secondly, it
What's the meaning of Avada worship
and it's derived from Barack Obama, but Barack apart and morbid one that is without land meaning one that is smooth and one that is leveled one that is pressed down. You may have seen that if people they take a route through a forest through let's say, you know a garden continuously, what happens on that path, grass does not grow over there eventually. And the ground it tends to lower, it tends to press down compared to the surrounding area. And such a bad is known as 30. But that because it has been used so much, people have walked on it so much it has pressed down. It has lowered it has been smooth and it has been leveled and from the same root is the word and who is our servant slave.
And what does the slave do? Even he humbles himself before his master. Even he lowers down before his master. He does not stand up arrogantly before him know he humbles. So this is why rabada worship what is very bad. It is to humble oneself before Allah. It is to submit oneself before Allah. And how does a person humble oneself before Allah? How does he press down? How does he lower himself before Allah by obeying His commands, and refraining from what Allah has forbidden. This is what humility means that I will do what you're telling me to do. And wherever you stop me from I will not do it.
If you think about it, this is what is required of a slave. This is a job description of a slave. Do what he's commanded, and refrain from what he has been forbidden.
And rabada ism Jeremy for everything that is a noun, it's a comprehensive word that includes everything that Allah subhanaw taala loves, whether it is an action, or a statement, anything that Allah loves. So if a person is saying a good word, something that Allah likes, something that Allah approves of, yes, it's only a word. However, that word is also what an act of worship. If a person entertains good, positive thoughts in his heart, and it's something that Allah loves and he does it for the sake of Allah, then that 30 even becomes what? An act of worship. If a person does something, he's washing himself, he's cleaning himself, why, in order to gain the pleasure of Allah,
it's something that Allah loves, he approves off. Now that washing himself that cleaning himself is also going to become an act of worship.
And remember that whether it is of two types First of all, Riba includes Hodor, Lil Emeril Kony to submit before Allah's Kony commands, Kony, which commands are they which are relating to the universe, like for example, somebody is born, somebody has to die, somebody has to grow older, somebody has to fall sick or somebody has to become healthy or somebody has to go somewhere. All of this is what gonee
meaning it doesn't have anything to do with Sherry or with religion. It is County.
So Rebecca, first of all includes holder, Andrew County, that does submit before a laws, county comments that if Allah says, quote, what happens felco
If Allah commands for a person that he should die, can he say no, I'm not gonna die. No yesterday. If a person commands are a person that he used to become sick, can he resist that? No, he will become sick. And this is what we learn in sort of medium that in koloman festa malware it will log in.
There is nothing in the heavens and the earth except that it will come to Allah as a servant.
So when we say that everyone is asserting
servant of Allah, then what does it mean that they are doing this kind of regatta they are submitting before his Kony comments. Because it's possible that a person does not believe in Allah. The person does not believe in Allah. He doesn't make the article. He doesn't fast, he doesn't pray. He doesn't care about what Allah has commanded. However, when it comes to the Kony commands, can he resist? No, he is submissive over there. So although he does not accept but still he is an OB Davila. You understand.
The second type of Riba is the lone Lil amarilla, he should hurry
it is to submit to a laws, shutter recomends shutter recomends What are they?
Like for example, the commands that Allah has given with regards to religion,
which are given in the Quran which are given through the sooner so for example, we learn in the Quran were evolved over human, the event of a man who are they any servant? Who does operate to Allah, Who does not even humble himself before Allah? Is it referring to any servant? No, with servants? Are they those who submit to Alice shutter he comments?
Because we mentioned this a lot. So enjoy the servant of Allah, everybody's a servant of Allah. But how are they a servant? It's two ways. And this is why these are like levels of servitude before Allah levels of submissiveness and humility before Allah, that whether or not you agree your body is going to submit. But the other is that you submit your heart as well. You submit your mind as well. And this is the kind of data that is not looped from us that is required from us. So when Prophet Ibrahim right, I said, I'm set to his people or Buddha, who What did he mean by that?
Which kind of provider is this? The second one that follow his shutter he commands as well worship Him, meaning do what Allah tells you to do. And stay away Allah has forbidden you from so or boo hoo. And the second thing that he told his people was, What the Who, who and also fear him? What does that mean? To protect oneself? To guard oneself from what? From something that is harmful from something that is dangerous? And how does a person adopt a quote? How does a person take protection from the punishment of Allah?
By doing what Allah has commanded? And staying away from what he has forbidden? Because if a person does not care about what Allah has commanded, he doesn't do it. And what is he heading towards? The Wrath of Allah?
If a person does what Allah has forbidden, than what is he heading towards the Wrath of Allah, so taqwa to take protection, to protect yourself from the punishment of Allah from the Wrath of Allah from the anger of Allah, from his disapproval, how will a person do that?
by obeying His commands and refraining from his prohibitions? Now, for about also I gave you the same definition, then.
So what does it mean then? Are they the same thing? They're not the same thing. They're similar. However, they're not the same.
When Riva and taqwa come together, when you compare both of them together, then there is a slight difference. There is a slight difference and what is that? That either it would refer to obeying Allah commands doing something
because a Buddha who worship him What does it mean do something you understand? So Riba would mean doing what Allah has commanded? And when are others followed by Takada taqwa would mean keeping away from what he is forbidden, stay away from what he has permitted.
Otherwise both give the same meaning as well. But when put together when coming together in the same context, then this is how we look at the difference between the two. So urba De La Hoya de PUE. Who Valley come highroller combat is better for you worshiping Allah, doing what Allah has commanded. And having taqwa of Allah, staying away from what he has forbidden, this is much better for you than what than not doing so than idol worship, because what is it that his people were doing? What is it that his people were doing?
schilke idol worship. So then you can hire a locum that is much better for you in contempt of Parliament, if you only know what do we learn from this ayah?
What lesson can we extract from every phrase of this?
What do we learn from what Ibrahima
that when Allah says whatever our human meaning what could Abraham is orderly call me. What do we learn from this, that when a person is facing difficulties, or when a person is calling other people to Allah, Who is
Should he remember? Who should he learn about?
The previous people the previous prophets especially. What else do we learn from what Ibrahima
What do we learn from that? The importance, the felida the excellence of Prophet Ibrahim Renison, it highlights the noble personality of Ibrahim right as soon as the grade level the grade Raja Ibrahim are the same because Allah says we're evil on him. And mentioned Ibrahim, he's worth mentioning.
You understand? Okay, so what Ibrahima is called alchemy, what do we learn from this is called alchemy.
The responsibility of calling once people to Allah, he said to his people, just because he knew he didn't keep the knowledge to himself, what did he do? He did our to his people. So the obligation of calling once people do the worship of Allah, and notice his people were who those who were related to him. So what does it teach us? It's our responsibility, that if we are on this path, we also have to take who along with us, our families and not just our families? Should we just be concerned about our families? No, the circle is broader than that. After the family comes through the relatives, the community and not just the community that you are associated with, but the people that you live
Okay, what did he say to them over the law, what the who, what do we learn from this?
We learn from this the obligation of a lot of a lot and also the obligation of having taqwa of Allah.
That when a person calls people to the religion of Islam, you should be calling people to the worship of Allah alone. That's the first thing. First thing, whatever the law, what the
vaniqa highroller come that is better for you. What do we learn from that?
What do we learn from this statement Valley come highroller calm.
That worshipping Allah having taqwa of Allah, this is something that is better for a person, this is something that is good for a person, this is the best thing that a person can do.
In life, people have many achievements, many goals, many targets, they want to accomplish many things. But of the greatest things of the best things that a person can do is what
everybody have a lot and having.
This is the best that a person can do the best that a person can achieve in quantum Darla moon, if you know, what does that show us? What do we learn from that?
Basically, we see over here the importance of knowledge that their local highroller come in content, Darla moon, that no person can make the choice of doing a lot of a lot and having your support, except for the one who has knowledge.
Knowledge of who Allah, knowledge of a thorough knowledge of the reality of this life. So a person can not give the right of worship, nor can he have the quote, unless and until
he has knowledge. When can you do something good? And when can you save yourself from harm? When you're aware, people when they don't have knowledge, what happens to them when they don't have knowledge about what's real, what's fake, what's a good deal, what's not a good deal? They go to the market, they go to the store and the first thing they see they get very impressed by its appearance. And there they take the package and as a result they end up suffering from from a charm, why? lack of knowledge. And if they had even a little bit of knowledge, then they will be more careful, they would make a better choice. So knowledge leads a person to making better choices. Their legal
highroller come that's better for you. But when can you choose that? One? Can you do that in quantum Thailand with some knowledge leads to making better choices in this dunya and also for success in the ashram? And then Abraham relisted him said to his people in Buddhism and dunlea, he, you only worship besides Allah ozanne and idols, what does lacuna if can and you produce a lie? you produce a falsehood, he makes them realize that what they're doing is nothing but a lie. That what you're worshiping the beings the idol that you're worshiping, besides Allah, what is their reality? Their only ozanne ozanne is a florala wasn't from the root letters well set noon. And Watson is everything
besides Allah, that is worship, so everything that is worshipped, besides
everything that is worshipped, that is revered, that is respected in the sense of rabada besides Allah soprano
that it is believed
That this thing or this being has some divine attributes, like for example it can create, or it can cause that it can give benefit, or it can give some harm. So what then is what any being that is worship besides Allah. And it is believed about that being that it has some divine attributes.
Now, remember that weapon, it can apply to a flag, even, that her person thinks that, oh, this flag, if I have it, it's going to be a source of luck, it's going to be a source of goodness for me.
Or it could be a grave that a person goes to a grave decided over their wide making door off of this thinking that the person in the grave has the power to bestow that it could be a statue, it could be an idol, it could be a rock, it could be a star, it could be a person, it could be a river, a mountain, it could be a place even aside even. So what is weapon, anything that is worshipped besides a lot and a person thinks that it has some divine attributes.
And the word wasn't when it is used in contrast with a snap, or snap is what idols as well. And ozanne is also used for idols. So in both the words come together, that I mentioned to you earlier that are snam. It refers to those idols that are made of what gold and silver and metals, so basically, they're melted and they're molded.
But oh sand refers to such idols that are made of wood, or rock. So they are graven they're carved.
But remember that the meaning of our sand is not limited to idols that are made of wood or rock.
As I mentioned to you earlier, it applies to anything that is worshipped besides Allah, whether it is an idol, a rock, a mountain, or river, anything. So he said to them, that these beings that you're worshiping besides Allah, what are they ozanne What does lacunae if can and you produce a lie? you produce a falsehood? If what is if, ally, Hamza fac F, it literally it is everything that has been turned from its original direction. If you think about what is a lie,
what is a lie?
It's a statement in which effect is misrepresented or a reality is misrepresenting a twisted statement, reality is something else and you are twisting it you are presenting it as something else.
So what does lacuna iskon? What does it mean by this, that you are speaking lies? When you say that these idols these beings, they help you, they give you risk, they protect you, they preserve you, they grant you success, or they have the power to harm you. What you're uttering is a lie, the Hakuna escan this is not a true statement. So whenever a person is attributing divinity to other than a lot than what is that statement, it's a lie with a lacuna, if can and if can also be understood as the idols, that they are a lie, there's no reality to them, and takuna you yourself, make them
so how can they be deserving of worship when you make them yourselves? If we take the meaning of ozanne to be graven images, idols that are made of rock or would you make them yourselves and this is an if there is no reality to it? In the levina, indeed, those beings who terrible don't I mean, don't lie you worship besides Allah lair yummly cornella Congress, they do not possess for you any provision, they do not have any authority, any power to give you this to give you provision. Therefore, if you want provision, who should you ask for but also seek in the law hitlist near Allah the provision, ask Allah for provision, every kind of provision? Why? Because he is the malakoff all
the risk. And not just that, but what Buddha who don't just go to Allah asking for food and asking for this and asking for that. Also give him his help what Buddha who worship Him, and after enjoying the blessings after receiving them, wash guru Allah who and be grateful to him, la ito geralyn to Him you will be returned.
What do we see in this ayah
that the people who are humanism, they used to worship idols. They were an idolatrous people, a mushrik people. And Ibrahim alayhis salaam, he was calling them to the hate.
And in the first time, we learned that he openly invited them to the worship of Allah alone.
But at the same time, he also negated their belief. He showed them the problem of their belief why their belief was incorrect.
What does that teach us?
Basically, we learned that we shouldn't just be telling people don't do this, don't do this. Tell them why they shouldn't do it.
By, for example, many times children are told, no way, you can't go there. Haha. I'm never going to allow you until I'm alive, you can never do this. This is what we say to children. This is what we say to adults even. But if you keep telling them No, no, no, no. And they don't understand why No. How will they think of this religion as something that is illogical, something that does not make sense. So when you tell someone not to do something, also tell them why.
So it will I hear at this time, he called them to the heat. And then he made them realize how what they believed was incorrect.
That what you're worshipping are what Osen. And the fact is, that these ozanne are what they're nothing but an if nothing but a lie. And these beings whom you're asking for this, they cannot give you any risk. Only Allah can give you this, therefore, ask him only. And when you ask him, also worship Him. And when you worship Him, also be grateful for him, because you remember that you're going back to him. You're not in this world forever.
So this is a very, very important lesson that we learn from this is that whenever doing that will also explain the problem to the people.
Don't just impose on them, but also explain the problem to them.
And we see that he tells the people further we're in the lajitas seek the risk from who Allah subhanaw taala. Why, because He is the Creator, he is the owner, he is a sustainer He is the one who sends rain, he causes the vegetation to grow. So he explains to them that the heat of Allah as well.
Why he tells them the problem with their religion with their belief, he also explains the religion of the heat to them in a very beautiful way, in a way that is full of wisdom ferwerda who are in the law at risk.
And then he tells them where Buddha who was karula who worship Him and also be grateful to him. Why? Because worship and gratitude. They go hand in hand. They go together.
If you want something in order to get this, what do we have to do? ask Allah for Buddha who are in the lower risk. But if we want that blessing to remain if we want it to last, then what do we need to do?
Be thankful to Allah, this is why we're Budo wash guru Lu
and La Ito, Jeroen, to him you're going back therefore, prepare for that day by worshipping Him and by being grateful. What do we learn from this? Ayah? First of all, the lesson that I told you besides that, what do we learn?
In Nevada bounnam and do nilay Olson? What does lacunae scan? What does the statement show to us? that anything that is worshipped other than Allah, whether it's a human being,
or it is a star, or it is a place or anything that people worship, even if they claim to be Muslim, if they're worshiping anything else other than Allah, then that thing is what it wasn't. And that thing is unable to bring any benefit. And that is what it's a lie.
And calling these beings God is what is a lie the Hakuna escan
What else do we learn from the next part of the ayah that inilah Dena tabula Minh dooney lay lay em licona la cumbrous on February we're in the loyalist.
These people we have learned earlier that they were archiveone to their gods, they remained in their worship submissively uninterruptedly in worship of their gods, being humble before them, submitting before them, clinging to them holding on to them, never leaving them. So what were they Oh, Sam? And what do we learn that if a person holds on to anything else, other than Allah like this, then that is also something that is incorrect. That all the time he's holding on to it all the time. He's doing it all the time, he's thinking about it, he never stays away from it never detaches himself from it.
So what do we learn from the next part of the ayah? That who should be turned to for risk, a loss
and what is the cause of risk, the suburb of risk, or the law of worship of the cause of risk?
How do you get risk or with Aloha, and how do you retain it? Wish karula
