Are you to be legendary Shivani rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim
that's number 207. Soto to Lanka boots.
What are to God do and do not argue lol kitabi with the People of the Book,
the addresses to, to the Muslim Ummah
to God know from the root letters deem that lamb g da
da da da, da da da da da, which is to debate to argue with someone to give one proof after the other why in order to win the argument.
So when other JD Lu do not argue with who lol kita be with the people of the book
and who are the people of the book, the hood and the masala and a little kita in particular refers to their their knowledgeable once the scholars have the money is for you.
And which book Do they have the color and the engine?
So do not argue with them. And obviously, the person does ever discuss anything with them, what would that be about religion, something about doing something about the book of Allah something about a loss of data.
So do not argue with them in legibility, except in that, which is the Villa de meaning al Majid Allah that is here it is a new best.
Meaning whenever you do argue with them, whenever you do have to discuss something with them do so in the best manner. In the best manner, your method should be good, your way should be good, the arguments that you present, even they should be.
And if you think about a generally an argument, you know, whenever we are in an argument, or we think of an argument, what do we think that both sides are very angry, they're very emotional, battling one another. But a lot of times it says when you do that, do it in an arson way. Meaning do it with tolerance. Do it with patience, do it with dignity, do it with respect, do it with your anger controlled, do it in a manner that is civilized
in LA Latina, salomo, except those who do wrong mean home from them.
Now this Sora is a murky soda. And in Macau also the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had some interaction with the People of the Book.
We mainly find out that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam migrated to Medina, there it was that the tribes of the hood were and later on the delegation from Nigeria, one of the Christians they had come.
But we see that even in Makkah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had some kind of interaction with the people of the book. And what was that?
That how some Muslims they had migrated to Abyssinia. And when they migrated to a senior obviously at the senior over there, all people were Christian. So they came across the Christians.
Then we also see that after some time, a delegation from Abba senior also came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to visit him in Makkah to see him in Makkah for themselves.
And we also see that there were some people of the book who are residing in Makkah, because some wish to gain some qualities they had converted to Christianity before Islam, like Who
are we known for right? And when the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he came to him and told him about the way he with his wife for digital the learner, he confirmed him. Right. Then we also see that the Michigan of Makkah, they would also go to Medina, to the yahood, seeking advice from them with regards to religious affairs, and especially about the Prophet satellizer, which is why they went to the hood and they asked him about how they could figure out if Muhammad Salallahu Islam was true or not.
And they told them wishing that you asked about how the Bani Israel ended up in Egypt and then sort of use it was revealed.
So, yes, the interaction in Makkah, it was limited, however, it was there.
Now, over here, a very important etiquette is being taught to us that whenever we do come across in a discussion with the people of the book, that whenever we debate with them, whenever we have to discuss something with them, especially with regards to religion,
then we should not debate in a manner that does not suit a believer.
We should only debate in a manner that suits a believer in a way that is best.
And what is that? that a person is gone. He is respectful. He is decent, civilized
Especially when it comes to discussing something with the little keytab. What do we learn sort of earlier and Ron is 64 that Kalia and then kita tolo in a khadeem at INSA in vain Anna ouabain Echo, that come to a word that is equal between us and you.
So talk about what common grounds speak on common grounds. Don't just start off with differences and say, Oh, yeah, you don't believe in this and you don't believe in that and you have this wrong belief and therefore, lash them and cut them off. And as a result, they develop hostility against you, no, this is not the right way.
The thing is that if you discuss something with them, if you debate about something with anyone, and if your manner is not appropriate, even if the other person agrees with you, they will not listen to you, isn't it?
So, a person must be very, very careful, especially the Muslim that when he is talking to others about the deen when he is talking to others about the deen of Allah, that he should be extremely careful. He should do so in a manner that is a sin. Because through this you will invite other people to do and if your manner is incorrect, if you become harsh, if you become abusive than the other person will not listen. Then instead of inviting people to Islam, you will turn people away from Islam.
So in lability here
earlier also we have learned that what God whom Belletti send an argue with them in a way that is best.
So whenever you do have the opportunity to discuss something with them, don't become angry. Don't become disrespectful, don't become overly emotional, calm down, relax, speak respectfully with politeness and see the benefit. Because many times it happens. And as soon as we hear them saying, Oh, they believe in such and such, and they don't believe in the profits or the lawn, etc, we get so angry, or these people don't know what they're talking about. They believe in lies, they've altered their books, and they will become angry and upset with them. And we become so emotional, we tend to disrespect them, and they're called us, you cannot benefit them anymore.
So person must be very, very careful, especially when he's discussing something about the DEA.
And the status is another lesson
that if we're the adult kita we have to be so
then if you're talking to another Muslim, who might differ with you concerning an issue concerning some matter, can we become extremely angry with them and disrespectful? No, we have to discuss in an arson way.
Because think about what you're talking about, what is it that you're discussing? It's the book of Allah. It's a loss of panel data, then you should only do that with respect. Only with respect.
You know, when you really love someone when you really respect them, then how would you talk about them?
So, if you think about it, this conversation revolves around a loss of panatela his Deen therefore, this argument should be arson
Illa Latina Latina woman home except for those people who have done zoom amongst them. What does it mean by that?
That let's say you are discussing something about the religion with them. But what happens? They become solemn, they begin to do well in the argument in the debate how
you're having a very decent civilized conversation and all of a sudden day becomes somehow
the start using harsh words, they start bashing you they start disrespecting your religion, they start disrespecting the loss of data, or the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or the Quran. Now at this time, what does it mean you continue with your arson debate? Allah subhanaw taala says inland Medina voila moving home. And how will we understand that in two ways?
That first of all, what it means is that do not proceed with the debate anymore.
Don't continue with the doll anymore. That's it, put an end to it.
Because the moment the other person becomes learning, the North they willing to listen to you? No, they're not willing to listen to you. When they become so disrespectful then they're not willing to listen to you. This is why don't argue with them. Don't debate with them anymore.
What do we learn what either haha homall je Luna, Carlos Casa Lana? That's it finish. Because you never know they might say something which may upset you so much or which may be so disrespectful to Allah subhanaw taala to his Deen. So don't give them the opportunity to even say anything. Just stop the conversation right there and it and move on to something else. Secondly, in the lady Nevada woman home What this means is that if the dialogue turns into you
Use of violence. Like for example, they are arguing with you, and all of a sudden they get very upset and they start beating you up or they start getting out of control. It's not civilized any more than what should you do? You're going to continue to speak to them in an arsenal, they're hitting you, you're going to continue talking? No, then you have to retaliate. In the same way. You're going to take that action that is necessary, whatever the situation requires from you.
Then you see, one situation is that which is a normal situation, it's a peaceful environment, normal circumstances, you're having an interfaith dialogue. Everything is fine. People are being very decent. All of a sudden, somebody becomes extremely harsh, rude. inappropriate, what should you do? Stop right there. And if you stop, but still, they continue. And they get more harsh, they become more violent than what should you do to stay silent? No, you have to stand up for yourself at that time. This is why Elena de Nevada Moomin home. How will you do that? By taking whatever step that is necessary in that situation, whatever that situation requires of you.
But just because it's allowances given doesn't mean that every time you know a person says something that we don't like we say, oh, Ilana the Nevada movie. No, that's no.
waku and say, Amanda, we believe Villa de in that which owns Villa Elena, which has been revealed to us, or owns de la la calm and that which has been revealed to you, what has been revealed to us the hold on and what has been revealed to you, but Oh, Randy, in June, what a lacuna and our God what Illa hokum and your God were hidden is one, the God whom you worship meeting Allah subhanaw. taala is one when we worship as well, when I don't know who Muslim on and we submit only to him. That's it simple.
So even when the argument is not going peaceful, and you have to say something, try to say such words that are peaceful, you understand
that when the other person is not willing to listen, you can't just say, Okay, I'm not going to say anything, be quiet. Now.
If you don't say anything, then what's going to happen? The other person is going to become more angry. Why don't you say something? Right? And sometimes the situation is such that you can't just walk out. So when the other person is being offensive, what kind of statements should you say?
What kind of words should you say? which you're going to make them more angry? Because this is what we like to do, right? When a person is angry, you could say something else, you know, make them more angry. Do them in this way. But what do we say over here? Say something that will calm the situation?
While kulu manavi levy on delay, Elena onesy la la comme la ilaha illa hokum Wahid, want to know who was removed? So what problem do you have with our religion anyway? What's the big deal? It's so simple. We believe in the same God. We believe in your books as well. And at the end of the day, we only submit to Allah soprano.
And the point of saying this also is that Amanda vema on Zilla, Elena Ponce de la come right that we believe in what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to you.
If you notice what has been revealed to you say this, don't say yes, we believe in your Bible.
You understand? Why is there a difference between saying we believe in your Bible, then what has been revealed to your profits? What's the difference?
That what they have has been altered. So when you say what una de la la con, it means we believe in what Allah revealed. We believe in the moon as well. Not that which is more than that is masala that has been altered. That has been invented. No, we believe in that which has been revealed. We see that it has been reported in Buhari that overridable. Delano he said that the people of the book they used to read the Torah in Hebrew. And they would explain it in Arabic to the Muslims. So whenever the Muslims you know, they wanted to know Okay, what's in the fella, they would go to the root and the hoe they would read it in Hebrew and then they would translate it into Arabic for them.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to them, Do not believe the People of the Book and do not deny them. Do not affirm them, and do not deny them, but rather say that we believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to you, our God and your God is one and to Him we have submitted.
So what do we learn from this is
a very, very important lesson that a believer whenever he is in an argument with someone, whether that argument is about religion or something else, but mainly about religion. Then how should his character be? How should his o'clock the
Such that is causing the other to get more angry, more furious, not adding fuel to the fire. But how should he be one who is trying to solve the problem one was trying to calm the situation down. So this is not just something that we should be applying in big debates but also in everyday life. Because if you're not used to doing this in everyday life, believe me, you will not be able to do this in bigger situations, it will be impossible
work as Erica Anza La La Calcutta. And as we have revealed to you the book which book the Quran, that in the same way that we reveal the previous scriptures, the Torah and the Injeel. Similarly, we have also revealed the Quran
for ladina. So those people who are Dana homolka, whom we have given the book, those people to whom we have given the book, are they
the alligator the root and and Asara. But those people whom Allah has given the book, meaning they have truly received,
they truly believe in the book as they should believe.
And they understand the book as it should be understood
and they implementable as it should be implemented. Then when a person has this kind of demand in the book of Allah, then what will it lead to? Human owner, they believe be in it in what in what we have revealed to you. What gallica and zelner illogical, kita.
And thus, we have revealed the Quran to you just as we revealed the previous scriptures,
for Latina, Latina, Hmong keytab. So those people to whom we have given the book previously mean they are older than us Allah, but those who are true believers in those books, you may not be they will believe in the Quran as well. And history is full of such examples.
where men have Allah II, and from these people may or may not be as one who believes in it, from who,
who they refer to the machine of Makkah, that even from these people, there are those who believe in the hold on those people who were most shaking but now they are momineen.
And remember that in Arabia, as I mentioned to you earlier, there were some people who weren't originally from the Bani Israel but they had accepted Christianity or they had accepted the religion of the People of the Book.
So when they came across the Quran what happened were men have in a minute min ob, and from these people also there are those who believe in it.
And as for those people who do not believe in the Quran, Allah says woman had to be a Latina, lol Catherine and none rejects our ad except the disbelievers those people who are extremely ungrateful. The Edge huddle from Jim Hodder, and gehad is to deny something after its Martin effect and
that after you recognize it, after you learn about it still you rejected. So who will reject the idea of a line this way?
Only those people who are very ungrateful those people who are disbelievers, those who never actually believed in the book, and over here I have Yes, it refers to the ayat of the Quran as well but also refers to the signs of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his description that was given in the previous scriptures. Because you see the advocate that they would read their scriptures, and they knew that a final messenger was supposed to come. Right. So those people who truly believed in the work, what happened when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came when the Quran came, they believed immediately.
And those people who did not believe in the Quran, what does it show
that they never truly believed in their books? Because if they believe in their books, that in their books are the signs of the prophets,
which are confirmed by whom Mohammed said a lot of them won't only
so they would believe in him.
In total RF ii 157, we learn alladhina activate una voz Sula, navigare, ami, and Lydia Duna, who MK two when are in the home for turati well in gene,
those people who follow the messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Injeel.
So, when they have learned about the signs of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and when they saw Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam they believed immediately, like Salma fallacy, isn't it? He recognized him immediately, or the live and tsunami recognized immediately accepted immediately. What acaba nofal, la joshy, all of them accepted.
So that's an evidence and those people who do not accept there's something else that's preventing them. It's ingratitude. It's COVID. It's denial. And we see that the root of Medina they knew they recognize the Prophet sallallahu Sallam What do we learn? You already foreigner who come here
foreigner of an era home they were waiting for him. What can woman cover yesterday Hola, Latina cafaro they used to seek victory over the mistake in saying that, yes, our Prophet is going to come and we're going to become victorious over you. But then when he came, they rejected him just because he was not of his family. And it's interesting. Once these people came to my sister's house, and they were, you know, preaching Christianity and so that we ended up in a discussion with them, and they were telling me about the signs of a particular Messiah or someone a low art and what and when they read the verse, it said, unlettered, unlettered prophet.
Did you know that the Prophet that we believe in even he's unlettered? He said, yeah, we know but he's not there.
Why? Because he's an Ishmael.
That's exactly what they said. That's exactly what the Buddha Medina said. And that's exactly what people say today as well. Well, Maya had to be attina a little careful on what bias do you have against another people? another race? your cousins? Right? Who are these my little cousins? If you think about it, distant cousins? What bias do you have against them? In the classroom?
When I contacted lumen cabling, human keytab and you did not recite before it any scripture, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, before he received the Quran, he never ever recited any book before that. Well, Malcolm lumen Cabo de Cabo de meaning covenant Quran, when Kitab in any book, whether the Torah or the Injeel, any book, The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was not able to read why he was an only, he was an only there were some people who would read the previous scriptures, like for example, what are called the Nova. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was never like that he could never read. So he never even read the previous scriptures, while at the hotel will be emenike. Nor
did you inscribe one with your right hand, the hotel from the roof address hot, hot, hot by a hotel literally means to draw lines to put marks. And from this hot is also to write or to draw. Because when you're writing or when you're drawing, what are you doing, essentially,
making lines putting marks? Isn't it's a lines from right to left or left to right, up and down. Right, that's what you're doing.
So well at the hotel, who nor did you write it, nor did you inscribe it. And it refers to any book, meaning before receiving Prophethood you never ever wrote a book be aminika with your right hand.
So what is it sure that now that you have received the Quran, it's not your own fabrication. Now that you're reciting the Quran, it's not your own invention. Think about it. All of a sudden, there's a person who never read and who never wrote a book and all of a sudden he's written an amazing book. Can you imagine
people who write great masterpieces? Are they able to do that just out of the blue moon? No. How do they do it? How do they do it? after years and years of practice? good writers. When do they start writing as children and they write throughout their school years in university and then eventually they're able to write a book which is good enough that it's worthy of being published.
But imagine the profits are a lot of them never read any book. And he never wrote any book. He never read any book never wrote any book. And this is a clear evidence behind his truthfulness without the hottovy emenike e then then meaning Have you been reciting something? And had you written something loud tablet mobile cleaning? Surely the people who believe in biathlon they would have doubted Delta if data from the letters that I ever write, and what does it mean? To have a doubt and if tab a of taboo is to be skeptical, to be doubtful, to suspect so even loud, terrible mobile telephone and who is mobile, a person who follows badly a person who follows falsehood, even while he knows what the
So these people who reject you, they would have doubted.
So in this ayah is an evidence for the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
In the previous ayah what was mentioned that the book being revealed to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is not something new. Just as we revealed the previous scriptures, we also reveal to you
a new scripture.
So if you believe in the previous scriptures, you should not have any difficulty between
Leaving in the Quran either.
And now over here, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, What's so difficult about believing in Him? You have his science. And on top of that, he never wrote any book. He never read any book before he is unlettered.
So, he is definitely, definitely true in his game of prophethood. So, why do you accept that? What is preventing you? What is stopping you?
Now, in this ayah, I want you to notice two things, that first of all, it has been said, What at the hotel will be a meaning. Nor did you ever write it with your right hand? You mean, the word yet has not been used? Understand, yet has not been used, what word has been used? I mean, what does it show? That what is the proper way of writing which Allah subhanaw taala likes, which is why he mentioned the right hand that a person should write with his right.
If you think about it, eating, when it comes to eating, what do we eat with? Right? Why? because food is a risk, isn't it?
Knowledge is also risk.
So if you eat risk with your right hand, then when it comes to writing, also, a person should write with what with his right hand.
Now, a child, okay, you can train him. But someone who's an adult who has been writing all their life with their left hand, what can they do? Whatever has happened has happened.
However, when it comes to children, we should be very, very careful that just because a child is writing with his left hand, or you feel that they have more strength in their left hand, doesn't mean you don't train them to use their right hand.
So many people they're taught to write with both their hands,
isn't it? So I remember one of my friends who could write with both her hands. Why? Because she said, As a child, she had more strength in her left hand, but her parents that didn't give up on her right hand. And they kept on making her writing and doing everything with her right hand and Mashallah amazing. We sitting in class, and we'll be getting tired writing with one hand, and there she would switch hands.
And in class, you know, sometimes people who are left handed, they find it difficult to sit on a particular chair. And if you're right handed, you find it difficult to sit on a particular chair, she could sit on any chair, and she could write with any hand switching hands back and forth. So conveniently, and her writing was beautiful. Mashallah. And what was the reason her parents didn't give up? They didn't give up.
So likewise, we should also not give up if you know anyone in our families like that.
Because then you get strength in both your hands, right? It's very much possible.
So never think that Oh, no, no, no, since I've been doing this all my life, it's impossible for me. No, you can do it. Provided that you make up your mind and you want to do.
And just remember that food is unless you eat with your writing, your eating is also a risk. So how can we be, you know, taking it and preserving it and writing it with our left hand. It's something that is
something that is blessed, it is something that deserves respect.
Also, one more thing I want you to notice over here, but the Prophet said a lot of sort of, Who was he? For? Do we learn from this? ayah and only, he never read? He never wrote he never read. He never wrote for what do we see a last panel delegate him.
And he taught
yet to do or lay him
where you are limo Makita we use a key here.
We think that only if we have you know a certain degree, you know, we've completed high school and we've completed that only then we can study the Quran.
Because the Quran, you know, it's not for the simple people. No, it's only for those people who are very highly intelligent, highly skilled, who have studied a lot. But what do we see? The prophets are those that have never read he never wrote. And he became the more alum of the
modeling. So never, ever underestimate yourself thinking, Oh, I haven't even completed my high school. So embarrassing. No, everything like that.
Never think oh, I haven't even completed my university. No. May Allah give you the topic to gain more knowledge. However, just because you don't have worldly knowledge does not mean you cannot excel at this knowledge. Remember that?
Just because you don't have worldly knowledge does not mean you cannot excel in the knowledge of the Quran you can because if Allah gave it to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam who passed on the Quran to the Arabs and who were the Arabs.
There are also unlettered only a few people could read and write. What kind of books do they have access to? Hardly, even if they did have could they read? No.
They were known as Oh miyun the unlettered people, the uneducated people. But look at how Allah subhanaw taala given the knowledge of the book, and those who don't have the knowledge of the book, what are they there?
to be confident, never feel that just because you don't have other type of knowledge, other kinds of degrees, what you are learning is not good enough. And what you have is not good enough. No, you can still excel in the knowledge of the Quran, provided that you put an effort, you give it your best, you take it to your heart, Allah will make you excel provided that you put in the effort.
And it's so amazing that there are people who really don't know how to read and write, but they have memorized the entire Quran, isn't it? So? Isn't that a miracle? There are people who don't have many worldly degrees. But when it comes to the understanding of the Quran, it's so clear when it comes to implementing the Quran. When it comes to reflecting on the Ayat of Allah, they're amazing. Amazing.
So never think that you need a lot of worldly knowledge to be able to understand the Quran. No, that definitely helps. I'm not saying that it's useless. No, it definitely helps. It adds to a person's understanding. It improves his understanding. However, it's not everything.
It's the column of a lot. It's everything.
And in order to take that in, in order to excel in that you need to open your heart and you need to give it your best
