then it is said effort dato Morona au Mineola calm, then do you covet that they would believe you. Okay? Meaning all your Muslims, do you covet? Do you hope any after all of this, that they will believe you? This is for yeast, the East is to basically, you know, tell someone to give up. Okay? So the Muslims are being told over here that you really think that these people are going to believe you, they're not going to believe you. So don't worry too much. Okay? Because if you think about the background of this fire, the Muslims in Medina, the o's and the huzzah Raj, the different tribes, the local tribes remember that they had made alliances with Jewish tribes that lived in Medina as

00:00:48 --> 00:01:29

well. So people who are friends with you, people who are supposed to be your allies, people, you know, with whom you've had a long term working relationship, any you want, good for them as well. So when the Osun husbands when they believed, what did they want, they wanted that their allies should also believe in the Prophet sallallahu Ernie, he was on them. So they would encourage them, they will talk to them, they would, you know, expectantly wait for, you know, the members of these Jewish tribes to come and accept Islam to believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But it wasn't happening. It wasn't happening. So the Muslims, you know, they were really concerned, they were

00:01:29 --> 00:02:13

really worried. And you know, especially when you want something good for someone and they're not willing to see it, they're not willing to take it. How can you help someone who does not want to be helped? You cannot? How can you give a gift to someone who does not want to accept that gift? You can't force it? And when it comes to the matter of Eman, you cannot force it on people. Okay, so if a total Morona Are you Aminullah come any when you recognize that their hearts are so hard, and this is how they treated Musa alayhis salam, okay. You think that they will treat Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with respect, any think about how they treated most artists and their own prophet?

00:02:14 --> 00:02:52

How did they treat him? He told them a simple instruction. They said, Are you joking with us? Right? And then when he told him, he made clear to them that he was serious. They made fun of him basically by asking question after question after question. They harassed him. So if they're treated musante Salam this way, you think they're going to treat Muhammad Sallallahu Arneson with respect, especially given the fact that Muhammad salallahu Alaihe Salam is not even from their tribe, from their people. He's an Arab, and it's well known that they would look down on Arabs. So if I talk to my owner, I mean, Allah calm, and especially when the fact is that what are the kind of for the

00:02:52 --> 00:03:39

coming home? Yes, Morona Cunnamulla. And indeed, a party of them used to hear the speech of Allah meeting, a group among them would hear the Torah. And then what would they do some of you had reformed a woman bar the maraca loo, then they would distort it after they understood it. Well, homie are Lamone. And they were knowing they knew what they were doing, they deliberately changed the words of Allah. So if this is how they dealt with the Talat the book that they were entrusted with, then what do you think they're going to do with Muhammad? SallAllahu Ernie who said no. So this idea is elaborating the reality of the heart heart, that it is unbelieving, despite knowledge

00:03:39 --> 00:04:21

of stuff that Allah any there are people who, if you try to advise them with an eye of the Quran, you begin the ayah. And they will complete it. They know the verse, you want to remind them by, you know, referring to a certain incidents from the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, you begin the incident, they will complete it. You mentioned one thing, they will add 10 More, you mentioned something and they will say, I know, I know already. I know all of this. So they have all of this knowledge, yet they don't believe they have all of this knowledge, yet they don't humble themselves before Allah, they refuse to change themselves. And here we see that they're willing to

00:04:21 --> 00:04:59

change the word of Allah. They're willing to change the word of Allah, but they're not willing to change themselves. So this is the reality of the hard heart. The person who has a soft heart will recognize they will acknowledge the shortcomings, and they will recognize that they need to change they will not try to change the words of Allah. And we really need to be cognizant of this because, you know, groups of Muslims are constantly trying to fit in. And fitting in means that every verse of the Quran every word of the Quran, every tenet of Islam must somehow fit in the current narrative, right or the belief

00:05:00 --> 00:05:46

that people hold or believes that, you know, certain ideologies teach us. So they want Islam to fit in. And in order to do that they will attempt to change the interpretation of the verses of the Quran. Whereas the fact is that we need to change our thinking in order to fit what the Quran teaches us. So this has been heavily criticized over here, people who deliberately distort the words of ALLAH, knowingly. So if these people change the toad ought to suit their desires. What do you think they will change themselves to believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they're not going to do that. And when it comes to, you know, changing the Talat or distorting its meaning. I

00:05:46 --> 00:06:34

remember this class I took on Biblical Studies, the first lesson that the professor taught was that when you read the text of the Bible, you are interpreting the Bible. Why? Because when it comes to the Hebrew text, you know, the conjugation, the correct recitation also, it's not really known. Okay? It's not really known. And, you know, you could read the word this way. And there would mean one thing, you could read the word that way, and it would mean something else. And this is why there are so many different translations, okay? And these translations are not just, you know, Old English, modern English, no, the translations vary a great deal. So why, because when you read the

00:06:34 --> 00:07:15

text, by definition, you are interpreting the text, okay. So when you're interpreting it, of course, there is going to be details, which you're going to be comfortable with, and then there's going to be other details that you're not going to be comfortable with. So according to the time that you're in, according to what is acceptable and what is not acceptable, you know, there are changes in the translations that have been made. And really, if you look at it, the more modern translations are really very modern, right. And if you look at older translations, there are things which are any very, very harsh, difficult to comprehend, difficult to accept. So we'll call it Canada for the

00:07:15 --> 00:07:57

coming home, this group of them which deliberately distort the text, this group is referring to the group of their scholars, because they're the people who kneel the book, the ordinary people did not know the Book. So if this is the state of the knowledgeable among them, that they distort the text, knowingly, then what do you think they're going to do with the Prophet sallallahu? Already? Who is setting them, you think they're going to believe you, you think they're going to accept him? No, they're not. So don't worry too much about these people. Okay. And this is very, very important. Because you know, there are some people, you care about them, you love them, because of the

00:07:57 --> 00:08:40

relationship that you have. Whether it is the fact that you are friends with them, or the fact that they're related to you, and you want good for them, and you try to, you know, explain to them you try to advise them, but they don't care, they don't respond. So yes, you should have hope. Right, you should have hope you should pray for them. And you should keep trying, you should not give up. But at the same time, you cannot worry too much about them. Because if you worry too much about them. It's unhealthy for you. It's unhealthy for you. And worrying too much sometimes looks like blaming yourself, okay, worrying too much looks like you know, that you're constantly preoccupied

00:08:40 --> 00:09:21

with, you know, their welfare, or advising them, or you know, your concern for them. And you are not paying attention to your other responsibilities. You know, for example, if there is a child of parents have for, for example, a teenager, right, who is refusing to pray, right, refusing to listen to anything, you know, being extremely rude. Now, of course, parents are going to be worried about this child, right? And they're not going to give up hope they're going to do their best they're going to keep trying, they're going to keep praying, they're going to keep thinking of ways to you know, soften the child's heart toward them toward the deen of Allah. But at the same time, they need

00:09:21 --> 00:09:59

to draw, you know, a boundary. Why? Because if they're constantly blaming themselves, this is my fault. This is my fault. This is my fault. I'm not doing enough. I'm not doing enough. This is very detrimental to your self image. Right? It's very unhealthy. And this concern this grief, this worry is going to destroy you. It's going to destroy your confidence. It's going to destroy your ability to look after yourself your ability to look after your other children. So you have to come out of that blame game and you have to understand that guidance is in the hands of Allah. Okay, guidance is in the hands of Allah. Yes, we have to do our

00:10:00 --> 00:10:40

RT and you ask yourself, Am I doing my part? Yes I am. Even if people say you're not because people don't know your reality, people don't know how hard you're trying. People don't know what efforts you've been making, right? For all of these years. They don't know and they will blame you. So you don't listen to people, and where you have hope. You also have to draw a boundary. So this is very important because it's telling us to not worry too much about people who don't care about themselves. Right? You do worry for them, but not too much, not excessively. And this is something that's mentioned the Quran in a number of different ways. You know, for example, at the beginning of

00:10:40 --> 00:11:19

surah Taha, where the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is basically told not to grieve too much over people who don't believe right because the Prophet sallallahu already said I will take it personally. And he would grieve a lot over people who did not believe so you need to have that balance. Then it is said what either not poor Lavina Amma no CalU, Amana and when they meet those who believe they say we have believed any instantly this reminds us of the verses we learned earlier about the hypocrites, right that when they go to the believers, they say we believe and then when they are with their Shayateen they say that we were only mocking. So some were to say that there

00:11:19 --> 00:12:00

were some individuals from the hood who actually embraced Islam. Okay, they did embrace Islam, because when they saw the signs of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam when they heard the Quran when they learned about the teachings, any they had no reason to deny. So they accepted Islam. But then what happened is that soon after they became hypocrites, how what is hypocrisy that a person outwardly says they're Muslim, but in the heart, there is no Eman. There is no faith on the inside is disbelief on the outside is Islam. So what happened is that initially they embraced Islam, and then, you know, when they would talk to the Muslims, and you know, they would acknowledge that yes,

00:12:00 --> 00:12:39

this happened. Yes. You know, the Quran says this, this is also in the Talat. Yes. You know, for example, the incident of the people of Sabbath who violated the Sabbath. So, you know, they would acknowledge that yes, this happened, right? And yes, these violations happen till today. So in these conversations, what would happen, you know, whatever they knew of their scripture, they would disclose that to the Muslims, because remember that the Torah was in their language in Hebrew, the Arabs did not speak Hebrew, and the Prophet sallallahu. Urdu, Selim one of the reasons why he told some of the companions to learn the language of the hood was so that there would be no deception

00:12:39 --> 00:13:21

because when it came to translation, there would be deception. Right? So what happened? Allah subhanaw taala says that when they meet the believers they say we believe but when they are what either Hala, baboon Illa bobbin when they are alone with one another, they say Kalu to head the Sunnah home Bhima Fatiha Allahu La con, do you talk to them about what Allah has revealed to you? Any Why do you talk to them about what is in the Torah? Don't tell them? Why do you talk to them about you know, the punishments that Allah gave to our ancestors? Don't tell them, why do you talk to them about the things that Allah subhanaw taala has favored you with? Don't tell them so be my

00:13:21 --> 00:14:06

Fatah, Allahu La comme This is understood in three ways. Okay. One interpretation is, as you can see, in your translation, Allah has disclosed to you all, okay? Meaning what Allah has informed you about the final messenger. So those who believed among them, you know, they will tell the Muslims Yes, the Torah tells us that the messenger will be like this and like this and like this, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is like this. Okay. So then their leaders would reprimand them that Why are you telling them about all of the signs about what Allah has disclosed to you all, regarding the truth of the final messenger? Don't tell them because if you tell them, then they're

00:14:06 --> 00:14:22

going to argue with you on the Day of Judgment, you know, before Allah, that yes, these people knew the signs of the Prophet sallallahu arias and they recognized him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yet they disbelieved in him. So don't give the Muslims an argument against you.

00:14:23 --> 00:15:00

Okay, by informing them about the signs of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that we recognize. Secondly, further Hala, who aren't AECOM also means what Allah has decreed against you all, okay? Meaning, the different punishments that Allah gave to our ancestors, like for example, the people who violated the sanctity of the Sabbath, right? So don't tell them about these incidents because if you tell them then you know they will say the Quran is confirming what happened to Quran is true, the Quran is factual. Don't tell them about these things so that they can never verify these accounts. When

00:15:00 --> 00:15:41

They will never be able to verify these accounts they will not know whether the Quran is, you know, telling the truth or not. Right. So basically leave the Muslims in confusion or leave them unaware because if you tell them about all of these incidents that happened, if you confirm these incidents, then they will argue with you before Allah on the day of judgment, and they will say, you know, these people knew, they recognized yet they didn't believe. And thirdly be my father hello where they come has also been understood as what Allah has blessed you with what Allah has honored you with. Because in the Quran we learned lefur Tana or lay him Baraka at Mina sama. That surely we

00:15:41 --> 00:16:21

would have opened up to them the blessings of the sky, meaning we would have blessed them with many many blessings. So in the Quran, you know, so far we have learned about so many blessings that Allah subhanaw taala gave to the Bani Israel. Right? How could the Muslims of the time of the Prophet salallahu already have seven verify those blessings because the Muslims, a majority of them were only human, they did not know how to read and write. And even if they knew how to read and write, they did not have access to the Talat because it told us it was not he No publicly available, all right. And even if they did get their hands on a scroller to, they could not, you know, read the

00:16:21 --> 00:17:04

text and if even if they managed to read the text, you know, you need to understand the text somebody needs to explain that to you. Now on hamdulillah it's so easy. You can open up the Bible, you can read, you can read a commentary, you can listen to, you know, an explanation. There's ways to verify at the time of the Prophet sallallahu earlier said that there was no way to verify no way but of course we believe that the Quran is from Allah loughrea Buffy so every information in every news that Allah subhanaw taala has given we believe in it right? So the Jews would say to each other that don't verify these accounts don't verify what the Quran says don't acknowledge it. Why because

00:17:04 --> 00:17:49

if you do then the Muslims will have an argument against you they will have a proof against you that we knew yet we did not believe so you see what's happening over here first of all, they're changing the book right? And then they're trying to hide the book as well they're trying to conceal what The Book says. And then they say a fella Turkey loon will you not reason any use your reason? Don't give an argument to the Muslims against yourselves. Honey, some people are trying to be smart but in the wrong way. Alright, so Allah subhanaw taala says a well AR Allah Munna and Allah Ya Allah mu, may you see Runa la mejor Linoone. But do they not know that Allah knows what they conceal and what they

00:17:49 --> 00:18:36

declare any before the Muslims, they come and say we believe we're with you. And then later on when they're with each other, when there is no other Muslim around, they say such things to each other. Don't they realize that Allah is a witness to their conversations. Allah knows exactly what they're hiding what they're doing in private, what they're seeing in private, and what they're showing to people. Because you see what they conceal and what they declare there were too faced, right before the Muslims one way amongst themselves another way. So don't they realize that Allah subhanaw taala knows. And you see when a person is being two faced one way in front of certain people another way

00:18:36 --> 00:19:21

in front of another group of people, or, you know, lying and pretending being two faced, any a person thinks that they're actually being very smart. Okay, but they're not being smart. This is why Allah subhanaw taala says about the hypocrites that you hold your own Allahu Allah Idina Amma know, they try to deceive Allah and those who believe. But in reality, who was it that they're deceiving when they have their own island for someone? In reality, they're only deceiving themselves. So pretense, lying, cheating, being two faced, this is not a smart, this is not intelligent behavior. And you see this idea that Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare, Allah knows what we

00:19:21 --> 00:19:59

hide what we show, this is something that we believe in as Muslims, right, because we believe that Allah subhanaw taala is our lead he is ever knowing. And, you know, this theme is actually any it's not that evident within the text of the Bible. You know, for example, even in the story of Adam and Hawa, you know, it's mentioned that Adam hid, right, that, you know, he hid from God. And, you know, there's so many incidents, details that are mentioned, you know, from which you would think that apparently God does not know everything. And I remember asking one of the professors about this when we were reading the certain text of the Bible that you know, is this

00:20:00 --> 00:20:42

Not a core concept that God knows everything and he's like, you'd be surprised. The Bible does not really reflect that the accounts in the Bible don't really reflect that. So, you know, you would think that any person would think that God knows everything, because what would be the difference between God and man then, so, this core belief of ours that Allah subhanaw taala is our lemon who Ube he is the knower of all of the seeds, right? Alima Libby was shahada he is the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed that Allah subhanaw taala is Arlene ever knowing any, this is a very clear concept and this is something that saves a person from a lot of wrong, because you know that you

00:20:42 --> 00:20:57

cannot hide from Allah. And when a person thinks that they can hide from Allah, this ignorance leads to a lot of sins. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us. So Allah Ya Allah Munna and Allahu Allah Allah may you sit on our May your linen
