Matthew 111 Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Abdullah who are suli Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ajmeri.
So we're continuing with the Tafseer of sorbitol Allah
and we just like to let everybody know that the class time has changed by half an hour. And that is because of salata, Asia here in Gateshead, in the UK, the new time that we are going for is half past seven inshallah, so that I think the thing is that the time is going to change quite rapidly now. So, in the coming weeks, you can expect the class time to get later up to a certain point obviously, when it reaches a certain point what we will do is make it after mothership instead of after Asia so the time will go you know, we're not going to make it too late because I know the people who are watching in Dubai, the time is late for you guys right now you know it's already
half past 11 at night and it's only going to get later so at some point we're going to move the class tomorrow but for now, the new class time is half past seven UK time.
We reached the statement of Eliza gel when we Yes, Cyril Kelly Yusra
we make it easy for you
that which is easy we make is easy for you.
ease we make a usaw
easy for you.
Even though Kafeel Rahim Allah to Allah He said in here a No sir. Hello la casa Island Haley Aquila, who?
One who shed laka shadow answer Helen Sam Han mustafi. Man eidolon la widjaja fee? What a how Roger weather. So
he said that we make it easy for you to do the actions of good and the statements of good. And we have legislated for you A Sharia? That is easy. And that is some hand any it's not. Sometimes they use the word for this tolerant, but it's not a good word. It's a it's a Sharia which is it doesn't have it doesn't make things hard for people. It makes it makes things easy for people. And it is upright. And it's just and it doesn't have any airy judge any kind of deviation in it. And there is no hemorrhage in it. There is nothing hard. There's no hierarchy in it. And there is no hardship in it. And there is no difficulty in it. So even though Kathy if you break down what he said here,
really he brings it back to two things when we are Cyril Kelly your salon ibaka Thea brings it back to two things. The first thing is, we make it easy for you all Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to do what will bring you the rewards that Allah has given you in general, I was prepared for the profit. So I said I'm the highest place in in paradise. And we will make it easy for you to do the things that will bring you then for example, what is one of the things already in the surah that Allah mentioned that he's made easy for the Prophet sighs so far in the surah?
What's one thing that I mentioned in the sort of so far?
That Allah has made easy for the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam seems to have answered on YouTube before we get answer from here
maybe not because we didn't advertise the class so long today so
very good. Center query okay fella tensor. So Allah has already made what easy for the Prophet sites have half the Quran half the way Allah made memorizing the Quran and the revelation easy for him. And that's why some of the scholars have to see it when they came to this. They said when we acetylcholine Yusra, meaning we made your life easy for you. We made it easy for you to remember what was revealed to you. But actually even Okay, theory is right in the sense that it's broader. It's not just have all of the good things that we made easy for you. We made it easy for you to do what was pleasing to Allah. We made it easy for you to say what was pleasing to Allah. We made it
easy for you to do the actions which bring you to where you are. And that's one part. The other part is the religion of Islam, the disrelated
of Islam is an easy religion you read a lot who become olusola you read you become an Ursa. Allah wants to make this religion easy for you. He doesn't want to make this religion hard for you.
And the statement of Allah azza wa jal will modularly complete Dini mean how much we haven't made for you in this religion, any thing that troubles you or that is hard for you or that is makes it hardship for you. This religion is an easy religion.
But I want you to understand that correctly, I don't want somebody to understand that means that, you know, you should find every moment of your life easy, right? That's salata. fudger sometimes in the winter or in the summer in the morning in the you know, the water is cold, it can be difficult for you. But this religion like even ocassion he mentioned it beautifully. He said Sharon salad, it's an easy religion, Samhain it's a religion that a lot of things are wiser to let go we are for an cassiel many many things Allah let go he didn't take you to account or he didn't detail every last thing for you. And part of that is in the statement of Eliza gel. You have levena amarula test
Hello Anisha in tuba della come to sukham don't ask about some things that if you ask about them, they'll make difficulty for you. And Allah said later, I follow Anna. Allah has led many things go for you many details that Allah could have made this religion hard for you, but he made it easy for you. Like the person who said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do we make Hajj every year? I frequently am in jasola every year Shall we make Hajj
not every local tonearm logia but if you if I say every year now you have to make Hajj every year. But in this religion has been made easy for you. So yes, there are things in the religion from time to time, that will be hard for you. Because this religion is Mr. kamin it's what you need to be upright. It's what you need to be to do things the right way and doing things the right way is not always easy. But as much as there is any possibility to make things easy this religion is easy. And that's why if you just compare the religion of Islam to or if you just compare the Shetty App of the Prophet Mohammed said it was given to the Prophet Mohammed sighs it to the Sherry I that was given
to Moosa and Benny is right. What do you see from Benny Israelite?
They put homage upon themselves right they put so much trouble upon themselves. Look at the story of the cow.
It's called a moose and he called me he in the La Jolla model commentaires bajo Baka Allah commands you to slaughter a cow
until this point they only have to slaughter any cow find a cow slaughter the cow that's it finished you did the job but they started to make problems for themselves
called Elena our back can you begin an MA
make to our to Allah ask Allah tell us what kind of cow so then it came What number is on wala beaker, not an old cow and not a young cup? Now it became more difficult. They could have stopped and found any cow of the middle age but they didn't call it earlier now. Rebecca ubay Ilana Malone, tell us what color cow shall it be.
Okay, now, Pakatan saphira has to be a yellow cow, which is not a young or not old. They could have killed any cow which was a yellow colored cow which was not younger, but they still kept going.
College arena Rebecca up in law here in Alba Carlotta shaba Elena. We don't know the cows are all similar to us. So again, now it became even more complicated, let alone to figure out what at a scale house Musa lemma to leshy at Effie. So the religion became hard for them because they made it hard for themselves. And they brought hardship upon themselves. Why do you think Allah told us all these stories in the Quran about Benny is right.
So you don't do the same let's have a synonym and can accomplish you're going to follow the way of the people who came before you don't make a religion that is easy hard on yourself. When the Prophet size and had a choice between two things, he would choose the easier of the two. That is as long as it is not Haram.
We choose the one that is easier as long as it's not. It's not hard.
So for example, when you're traveling, Allah permitted for you to break your fast.
If it's easy for you to fast, you can fast but if it's easier for you to break your fast, and it's hard, a little bit harder for you to fast. It's better for you to break your fast because Allah wants your religion to be easy for you.
He wants it to be easy for you look at the five daily prayers people think it's hard to pray five times a day. How many prayers was this originally 5050 and it was made into it was made into five allies made this religion very, very easy for you when we acetyl Kelly Nusra.
And that's why
we have to balance or we have to understand that as well in the concept or in light of the fact that gender is valuable. There is a hadith Allah in SLR de la jolla. What allies giving you what Allah is offering you, is expensive, it's valuable. It's not something cheap, gender is valuable. So you have to work hard, you have to try you have to strive for Latina gehouden, phenol and Etienne de Haan soo bolena, those who work hard for us, we will guide them to our ways.
But wherever there is a possibility for ease. Allah has made this religion easy for us.
For that kid ineffective vicara
further, a command to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to remind.
And that was the job of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I think this is really important when you talk about dour
that the the role of the Dyer who is given down the role of the one who is
teaching people and educating people, your job is not to guide people, not to guide people in terms of tofield to bring them to that. And sometimes you feel like that you feel like
I'm pulling this person by the arm. But that's not your job. Your job is further
go and give people a reminder remind the people and then the guy that Sophia is from Allah, whether they accept that reminder or whether they don't accept that reminder. But your job is to remind people for the cure for in vicara 10 feral mini remind for the remainder benefits that believers
ineffective the crop. If the remainder benefits. Now here, this is really interesting because this ayah if you were to take it
as it appears to be with the first time you read it, you might understand from the idea that you should only remind people if you think they will benefit. Maybe somebody will listen for that care
in authorities decra.
Meaning if the decra will benefit, then remainder, and if you think it will not benefit, don't bother.
That is one understanding of the ayah.
And you only remember only you should only remind people that you see this person is willing to accept your reminder.
However, what there's a principle we've mentioned many times, which is that the Quran and the Sunnah have to be taken as a as a whole, you can't take one idea and then not see it in the light of the other ayat. So here this ayah has two possible meanings. One meaning is you only remind people if you think it's going to benefit. And the other meaning is, in fact it vichara I will tell whether it benefits or not doesn't matter if it benefits or not. Your job is to remind them whether it benefits or whether it doesn't.
Which one of these two meanings is in line with the rest of the Quran?
Should we only remind people if we think they will listen? Or should we remind everybody whether they listen or whether they don't?
Everyone, right? That's what the prophet sighs him did. He didn't say I'm only going to talk to this person, because I only think this person will benefit the rest of them. He's not going to listen to me, so I'm not going to try. So we see that the meaning of this ayah is not as you might think the first time in fact is the claw, meaning if there is no benefit, don't remind anybody. But the idea is as some of the scholars of Tafseer
in fact it vichara lm temper, whether it benefits or whether it doesn't. Your job is to remind and this is what we call a karma to establishing proof upon people.
In other words to show to give the message that somebody has received the message and they have they have
The argument has been made again, you know, for them, they've seen it maybe made a cut the her job has been established for them.
really the messala this decision is a big issue in this in inaccurate, really, which is Miss Ella to the project. To what extent do you excuse ignorance, but really this? This is what it's called today in many of the you know, if you look in the
rasa elmia, if you look at the theses that have been written in universities and things like that, you often see the title herbal journal. But that's not the that's not what it was known as, in the early generations. They used to actually call it a karma to her mess, and it will miss Ella to a comet it. Has the proof been given to this person or not? Has this person
Understood? The proof? Has this argument been presented to the person or not? And that's what allies are required from the Prophet sallallahu it was sent them further Can you go and you remind the people, remind them of Jenna, remind them of the fire, remind them of what will lead them to gently remind them of what will lead a person to the fire. Remind them of obedience to Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remind them of the laws of Islam, remind the people that's your job, remind the people whether they bet a benefits or not, that is in the hands of Allah.
And then ally. So Jen tells us about
the two groups of people, those that it will benefit. And those that it will, those that it will benefit and those that it will not, and those that it will not better than those that it will benefit and those that it will not benefit, Sega that Carol miasha.
So who will benefit?
And that's a proof that the ayah by the way, is understood like that. It's not the meaning of the ayah is not that you should only remind the person who will listen because Allah mentions what will happen when you remind both types of people
will say Eugen Nebo has a scar. So, Allah told us, when you remind people, that people who are going to benefit or like this and the people who are not going to benefit I like that. So, he told us both kinds of people, which is a proof that this idea is for both fair that your job is to
give the message in another way a lot mentioned that the job of the Prophet sizer, Isabella whom will be to give a clear conveying of them to convey the message clearly, to give a clear, and, and a message that can be clearly understood. That was the job. Give the message. Aki who will benefit, say avec calderoni yaksha
say avec Kuru man yaksha, the one who is going to remember, or who is going to be benefited from that remainder. The one who's going to take that remainder, that health care or that declaw and they're going to actually take it in is the person who has the characteristic of alhaja
so what is Akasha? The scholars they say Akasha is different from a home. Generally if you ask if you ask somebody what's CATIA, they would say, Whoa, right? CATIA is fear of CATIA here, whoa. But what's the difference between the two? Some of the scholars they said alhaja is a whole Ma. ll, they said that it is fear and knowledge of what you're scared of. If you're scared of something, and you don't have any idea what it is, you don't call it harsh, you call it health.
And that's why
the word hope could be used generally it could be used specifically but in a general sense, the word Hope it covers all types of fear. But in a specific sense, it covers the fear that you don't really know what it is that you're scared of. You don't know it properly. Whereas when someone knows Allah,
and then they have fear of a lot because of what they know. This is what is called Harsha. And this shows you why this characteristic is so important to
this characteristic of Harsha.
A person has to try to
develop within themselves
Fear of a lot that is not just fear on its own, but that you actually come to know Allah. And the more you know a lot the more you know about his names and his attributes, the more you really fear Allah Hakata you know, like, like we could say have katikati as he deserves for you to have Taqwa of him. And there is a statement of eternal cleone Rahim Allah to Allah He said, Men can abelia he out of Canada, men who are worth that whoever knows a lot more, will feel a lot more when he a bad that he ought to love. And Marcy, it added that this person is going to try to worship a lot more and is going to be far away from disobeying Allah, they're going to be far away, because they know Allah.
So the more they know Allah, this is what brings a person to have fear of a law that is based on that is based on knowledge.
Then allies who just said waiata Gen Nebo. Hill Ashkar.
Here, the interesting question is Ashkar here, the word Ashkar here the pattern for it is FL right. So this means that it means
again, when you read it at first, you would think that the meaning is the one who is the most wretched
Ashkar comes from shocky. Right, the one who is the most wretched. So is the meaning here the most wretched.
Meaning there are going to be wretched people who will not keep away from it.
That's not the meaning here. Sometimes, and this is it's an interesting point, that sometimes this word comes and it doesn't mean the most. It doesn't mean
like they say Alexa
schuchart and it doesn't mean the one who is the most wretched. But it just means someone who has the who is wretched generally.
And that's why not every time you find a word on this pattern,
a file a tough will not always does it mean the most.
Allahu highroad emoji
is a lot better, or the one that they make partners with. There is no comparison between a line between the ones that they make, they make partners with there is no way you cannot even there is no you cannot even compare anything in between. So the meaning here doesn't mean the most. It doesn't mean the most
here. So here what it means is that the one who will keep away is the one who is shocky who is wretched, who is away from all kinds of good.
All kinds of good.
A lady Aslan kupala.
The one who is going to enter into a now l Cobra the great fire.
The Great Fire here they see that the great fire here and not on kouvola The meaning is the fire of Jana. And that another Silverado is the fire of this world. The fire of this world is called the little fire and the fire of the Hereafter is called the big fire. Some of them had some other opinions but they are not strong and the strong opinion is that then the small fire is the fire of this world. And the great fire is the fire of
from Malaya mucho fi ha well I
hear the word thunder, then
it doesn't mean
it the meaning here is not that this will happen afterwards.
But that it it is that the the severity of what they will experience will keep getting worse. It's not a time issue but it's an issue of how severe the punishment will be. Like they say
the taraki here is not a taraki Phil mood that is Emma Ania It doesn't mean that they're one thing happens then the next one then the next one. But it is a taraki female activist she is getting their punishment is getting worse and worse. from malaria more to
than the person will not die PHY her in the fire while you're here and they will not live. This is the first question we have to ask ourselves.
these things are two opposites, right? You're either dead, or you're either alive. So how can it be that you are not dead and you're not alive? You see, generally speaking, these are two opposites, right? You're either dead, or you're either alive. In people, a person is either dead or either alive. They're not dead and alive. And they're not neither dead or alive. They're either dead, or they're either alive. But here Allah says, from malaria, moo to fear what I hear, the person will not die, and they will not live. So if they will not die, and they will not live, what is the situation of this person?
This by the way, this description is the description of the people who will be in the fire forever, is not the description of the believers, who will be in the fire for a temporary amount of time because of some major sins that they did.
So here, they are, the people who will be in the fire forever, Allah said, they don't die, they don't live. The meaning of this is they don't die. So that they find what's the word like rest bite piece.
You know, like somebody is being tortured. And they say, I just wish I will die. So it will stop, they will not die, it will not stop. And they will not live so that they have a life that will benefit them. That's why they say,
Well, are you here, higher 10 nursia or hire 1010 Pharaoh, you will not live a life that will benefit. There'll be nothing and it's not a life you're living. You're just being punished every single day, every single minute, you don't die so it doesn't end and you're not alive, that you have anything benefit, any benefit in your life. So the person is neither living a life that is worth mentioning, nor are they dying, so that they can find peace, but they just remain in a state of constant of constant punishment. They are alive in the sense of this, they are not they are not dead. But their life is not a life that is you can just you cannot describe that life as a life.
Does that make sense? Like we would say in English, we would say you can't say that. You can't call it a life. That's what we would say in English. You can't call it a life because it's not a life to be punished every single day every single moment is not a life, but the person will not die either through malaria more to fear what I hear.
This is different, like even Okay, fear here. He mentioned to generations from Muslim dilemma I met
both from Abu Salah al Quadri,
regarding the people who will be in the fire from the people who were Muslim. Because we know that some of the believers will be punished in the fire for a temporary amount of time, but nobody who dies
with La ilaha illAllah nobody who dies with the conditions of
faith of Islam, that person will not remain in the Hellfire forever.
So these people who are punished in the fire, they will die.
They will die in it and they will come a point when our lives are gel wills what He wills for them, that they will actually die in the fire. And then they will be brought out of the fire and different people will be brought out for different reasons. Because the prophets have a shefa the angels have Shatha the believers have a shahzada
for other people. And there will be a people who are taken out by the mercy of Allah by the mercy of our hammer Brahimi.
So there will be people taken out from the fire who were Muslim and they entered the fire because of the sins that they they did. They did they had major sins. They were not forgiven. And they were punished for those sins in the fire, but they will leave the fire. Those people are people who will die into fire. They die and then Allah azza wa jal will take them from the fire, either by the shadow of the prophets, the angels or the shadow of the believers. This this Heidi mentioned that she thought of the believer.
And there are numerous Hadith about this. There are many a hadith about this. But this particular Hadith it mentions that a man will come in a person that Allah has allowed to intercede for other people.
Because remember with Shahzad, there are
three conditions of Shatha for shafa to happen.
First is that
Allah must give his permission.
No shofar happens without the permission of Allah nor intercession happens without last permission. Mandela the ash Pharaoh in the lobby evening, nobody can intercede in the sight of Allah except with His permission.
The second is the Allies or gel has to be pleased with the one who is asking for the intercession.
The chef is the one who is asking and saying that all i except my intercession for this person, Allah has to be pleased with them.
And Allah has to be pleased with the one that is being interceded for the one who is being punished, that Allah is pleased with their meaning they are from the people of Islam, they cannot be from the disbelievers, except in the very limited specific situations you have like the intercession of the prophet SAW Selim for Apple for Apple pilot,
or the intercession for shuttle the roadmap for the day of judgment to begin and so on, but these are very specific cases Otherwise, the the intercession has to be for someone who is a Muslim that Allah is pleased with.
So, here, a person comes, a man comes
and he takes out a group of people, he takes out a group of people lebara
Jenner, he takes out a gender of the people.
And they are
thrown into the river of life, or the river of gender, there are different names for it, is called the river of in some durations, it's called the river of life,
the river of higher or the river of higher, or the river of heroin, or the river of gender.
And then it's described how they come back to life, they come back to life, like a seed, which is thrown in the in the torrent, you know, when the valley when the word fills with water, you have a valley and the valley fills with water, the water runs down the valley, it takes the seeds with it, the plants and the seeds. And those seeds get thrown onto the side of the of the the word of the valley of the where the water flows, and small plants grow from the side of it. So this is the example that was given that was given in the Hadeeth.
So they will be put into the river agenda or the rivers agenda. And they will grow like a seed grows on the bank of awadhi when the when the water comes.
And that was the example that was given. Well, that's example from the Heidi Thibodeau Kafeel, he mentions
so here from Malaya, Moto Z, how well are you here this ayah is not revealed about them, but this is revealed about the people who will be in the fire forever. Those people they will never ever die and they do not live a life that is worth calling life.
Then alive. So it has said called f le Herman Tezuka
whether karasuma will be here for Sanya.
there are a number of different opinions about the word to Zakah here, but
certainly the person who does this will be successful.
So Allah azza wa jal told us that the person who does this
will definitely be successful. So what is the exact cow which is mentioned what is it that will make them successful?
hear many of the scholars they they took this word to Zakah to be a kind of
In fact, we can divide the scholars of Tafseer into two groups to start with. We can say a group of them they said to Zack Can I hear it means Tez kiya to neffs purifying yourself and they split into groups some of them said purify your actions test gear to ml. Some of them said
that a person purifies their heart and different different but this all comes under test gear to knifes purifying yourself. The other opinion is that the test skier here is a cattleman.
Given this a car. And here they also differ some of them said Zack Carter
Mal generally and some of them said the cattle fit. What do you think made them say as a cattle fitter? Why would Why did they understand from the is a cattle fertile?
What was it about the ayah that made them say this is a cattle fitter?
A group of them portada.
A group of a group of the scholars of Tafseer
they said the cuttlefish
what made them say is a cuttlefish
very clear that I
had f lahat. mentors that care whether Carlos Merapi for sada
what do you do on a day gives a counterfeiter
remember Allah and then pray.
So they said this is this ayah was revealed about
But after Hemant has occur, whether Carlos Model B Fossella, the cattle fatale, so the person gives the cattle fitted, then they then they do the tech Pirata read. Then they pray the eight prayer. They said this is the cattle fit.
And it's generated from some of that
any from some of the early generations that that's what they said.
They said that this is
this is the this is the cut and fit. But the majority they didn't say that the majority they said that there's a car here is test gear to nefs
test gear to nefs. How do you purify yourself? you purify yourself with Eman? you purify yourself by a being Allah and His Messenger sallallahu wasallam you purify yourself by keeping away from disobedience. you purify yourself by righteous actions. you purify yourself with STL file. So they say that this is the meaning here called f le Hammond Hezekiah is there another ayah we can see that this was used in we've already covered it. And
f le Herrmann zakka here is definitely test get enough, right? Because Allah said when I've seen women Sawa Allah swore by the soul and then said I'd fly Herman zeca. The successful one is the one that purifies their neffs. So, the majority of the scholars of Tafseer they understood this ayah in Surah, Allah in light of the iron soldier ships,
one FC warmaster waha until Allah said, Ethel Harmon zeca that the one who makes teskey to nefs, who who purifies their soul, that is the one who will be successful. And they said, this is the same here called ephra. Hammond has occurred.
And they mentioned evening, a bustle of the lava and Homer he mentioned also here with regard to whether Carlos will be here for solar
that the test gear here is test gear to Amman and he purifying your actions and actually purifying your actions is part of test gear to nefs. It's not the two are not the same thing. It's the same statement. Because actually the same thing, you purify your actions you make it sincere for Allah you strive to obey Allah, you strive to do the right thing. This purifies your neffs this purifies your soul.
Whether crossmodal be for Salah, again the same thing about
Islam Allah be he can be mentioned here as the same as we said in the beginning said be his motto because Allah that the meaning is where they're caught up, Rob Bell bismi that's what the meaning is here. He remembers his Lord with his name, with his names and he remembers Allah with all those names. And not that he remembers the name of Allah in of itself and he just the name of Allah like that. But that he remembers the name of Allah. He remembers Allah with Allah as names. Why is that important?
Because if we say, to remember the name of Allah, the only thing we take from that is a vicar bill isn't just your tongue moving. I remember the name of Allah, Allah, Allah medical produce a salon, but it doesn't necessarily It doesn't mean the heart is necessarily working. And just the tongue is working. But if we say whether Carla or Rob Bell bismi he That's the meaning of the ayah that he remembers his Lord with his name. It means you remember
Embassy's Lord in His heart and with his tongue.
And that's basically the summary of what Eleanor Khayyam said why the word Islam is pinned here, because it indicates the heart and the tongue together. He remembers his Lord
With the name of Allah. So he remembers a lot in his heart. And he pronounces the name of Allah on his on his tongue
for salinda, and then he prays and there is no doubt with the Salah, our prayer, it covers or encompasses all of the kinds of Vicar, right. The prayer includes the vicar of Allah with the heart, and the vicar of Allah with the tongue, and the vicar of Allah with the limbs. All of those come into prayer. So the prayer is a complete form of Vicar.
It covers the remembrance of Allah with the heart and the remembrance of Allah with the tongue and the remembrance of Allah with the limbs.
Even Okay, theater him Allah to Allah He said, a akarma solid feel party her EBITDA ridhwan illa we'll call it the Emory law when T Theron Leisha Allah He performs the prayer at its times seeking the pleasure of Allah a being the command of Allah and following or implementing the law of Allah
and there is no there is nothing against the I are also referring to Salatin eight and there is nothing but there is nothing specific in the ayah that says it should be solidly either, but salata, there is one example of that. So I think the best way to understand it is to say the eye is general. And a needle fitter is one example of this.
purifying yourself through the catheter, remembering Allah with your heart and your tongue in the tech Virata aid, and praying the prayer that is one example of it. But it's not the only meaning of the ayah, or the specific meaning, or the specific meaning of the ayah.
And this also tells us the importance of Salah in teskey to neffs.
In purifying your soul and purifying your heart. The prayer has a very important part in that. In fact, if we were to say that the prayer is one of the single most important things you can do to purify your heart It contains is still far it contains turning to Allah it contains. It contains Vicar it contains asking a lot of guidance. It contains the code with the heart and the tongue and the limbs. The Salah is a complete package, which brings about purification of the heart. And that's why it's mentioned here at the end, because it brings everything together. It brings teskey to neffs and it brings a vicar bill kalbi. Well listen, it brings remembering Allah with your heart and your
tongue. And all of it comes together in the Salatu comes the five daily prayers.
And some of the scholars they said
here a law is origin rules. Let Allah decrees that the people who remember him
and pray after having a man they are the people who will be successful.
And that's a very beautiful way of putting it
hack Emma B fella him.
Or bill fella. Hey, Leah Holly victory wa Salatu Abaddon Eman. So very nice way of putting that Allah has decreed success for people who have three things in them. First of all,
if we start backwards, they
remember a lot and they pray.
They remember a lot they pray. And they do they do that in a state of Eman
and the state of Eman they took it from called FL Herrmann to zecca because you can't say this about someone who doesn't have email and who's purified themselves. So this person is a person of a man and a person of Vicar and a person who prays This is the person who will definitely be successful and allies which emphasize using cud. Certainly
Certainly, this person will be successful if they remember Allah. And they pray. And they are
any they do so in a state of Eman
there are other statements are made when Abdul Aziz and others about Eden fitara, and so on.
portada I mentioned that others, but here,
as we mentioned that Zika here is an example givings a cart with your wealth. That's an example. But it's not the it's not the general meaning of the ayah. And Allah knows best.
Then allies, we just said back to zero, not highlighted dounia.
Allah now mentions the situation of going back to the situation of the people who have not taken the benefit from the reminder that they've been given in the Quran and in the sun that they haven't taken that reminder.
Analyze, which has said better to see whom you have put the worldly life ahead of
the life of the hereafter.
And the life of the Hereafter is that which has your benefit, and not which is your real life,
your real life. And that's why Allah described it as
an Haier one. The real life, the true life. The true life is the life of the archaea.
The life of the dunya is a matar, it's a temporary thing. And it is material world. It's the it's the
deceptive the type, the deceptive, a temporary deception, people are deceived by it. So all as we just said Bell 201 and hire to do
well here or to hire on whatever car he also hired what other car doesn't mean, better and more lasting. Here, and Allah knows best, I don't think it means better and more lasting. Here. It means higher meaning it's the all of the all good is in it. The all good is in it. Whatever car it's the only one that lasts. Because the junior you don't say about the junior that it has that it is back here. The Junior doesn't have the car in it in the first place. The Junior is something which goes away. It's short, it's temporary. It will actually turn out to have to feel like
part of the afternoon or part of the morning to feel like a little part of the morning. It's not gonna it's not something that you can say about it that it is back here that it's going to last or it's going to go on forever. So here hirundo at the car, it seems that Allah knows best that what the meaning of hirundo abacha here is that it is just the cifa itself the description itself or the characteristic itself, that the hereafter all good is in the hereafter and the Hereafter is the only one that lasts.
Blue Cassio gremolata Allah He mentioned about this he said a syllable la heat for doubted Akira hierro Mina dunia What up call for inner dounia Danny a twin Fannia will euro Sharif attune valkyr for Keifa your serial archelon my F ma yes now alhama yep car. He said that the reward of align the Hereafter is better than the reward of the worldly life. And it is the one that is lasting.
For the worldly life is something which is insignificant and it's something which disappears, it goes away. And the Hereafter is something which is normal and it's something which lasts. So how can a person of intellect prefer something which goes away over something which lasts.
Likewise, there is no comparison between the hereafter and there is no comparison between the dunya.
In other life is surfing oola. Here the interesting thing is, Allah said indeed this in other this is in the early Scriptures for surfing hula in the early scriptures, the scholars of Tafseer hear all of the difference of opinion is what
What is meant by harder?
Which part of the surah which part of the surah
did Allah refer to with hada in other life is sort of a ruler. This is in the early scripture.
even with jarier Rahim Allah to Allah He said, f Allah Herrmann to zakka until
in FL Hammond desert kawada Carlos Moto G for Salah.
The person who purified their soul, they
remembered Allah and they prayed bell to thirunal higher to dunia will fly to higher on whatever car in Nevada. So even when Jerry he took it from him and he said, this is the message that is found in all the scriptures, that if you purify your soul, you'll be successful. If you remember Allah and pray you'll be successful. If you don't prefer the worldly life over the hereafter you prefer the hereafter. And you remember that the Hereafter is what is going to last and the Hereafter is what all goodness is there. That is a message which is in all the scriptures. That's what even when God Rahim Allah to Allah He said
and that was also a series narrated from cortada and from others, that the books the scripture of Allah quotable law,
that these books, they all mentioned that the Akira is better than the dunya from the Torah and the MG and and the other scriptures that are revealed all of them, they mentioned
that the art is better and more lasting than the dunya. Like was it has no basri
he had that.
Qatada and moseyed. They said in the hair that they just took the ayah before Well, our hero to highroad whatever call that the our hero is better and more lasting in their life is to forfeit all this is mentioned in the early scriptures that the ark era is better and our hero is more lasting that's what they that's what they said. They said they did it and God he went all the way back. Cuz after Hemant aceca they said just the ayah before just the ayah before
that the Akira is better and more lasting that was mentioned in service Allah.
Allah Allah or him Allah Tada. He said, Please, sir, to hide his surah Allah, he went for the biggest he said the whole message of the solar is found in the earliest scriptures.
He said the whole the whole story the whole message of the solar is found in the earliest scriptures.
So her surfy Ebola him
Sahih Ibrahim amasa.
Allah azzawajal mentions here to scriptures.
So heavy Ibrahim, the scriptures of Abraham, we know that Abraham was given a revelation from this, we know that Ibrahim was given a book. And we know this book is called survival, right? But we don't have any more information about it. The main books that were told about in the Quran, were told about the Torah, the Injeel, the war.
We're told about the Anwar that were given to Mossad, the tablets the print the tablet that was given to Moosa.
But we're not told the detail in detail really, we get the Torah and the Injeel. invisible, this is like, a lot of detail is given. But in terms of just mentioning, there are other scriptures which I just mentioned. And the belief in the scriptures is like the belief in the prophets that there are many, many prophets we don't know the details of, there are also many scriptures that we don't know the details of that Allah gave. But Allah tells us about the Torah. And Allah tells us about the Injeel in Islam. That's what Allah tells us about in detail. Here. Allah mentioned surfy, Ibrahim, the scripture that was given to Ibrahim and the scripture given to most of the scholars the
different sort of Moosa here. Is it referring to something that is already told about in the Quran? Or is it another thing that was given to Moosa apart from the Torah
The, the the tablet? Is it something different given to masa? Or does it refer to the Torah? Or does it refer to something else? Some of them said it's a different it's different what was given to Moses? And some of them said that it's what was it refers to what was given to Musa. But what we know from this is that our belief generally and I'm going to finish with this.
What is our belief generally about when we talk about the man bill could?
Because this is a nice place to talk about it just for two minutes. What does it mean when we talk about a man we could and took me and I will tell you what mela equity you were called to be? We believe in a lot of Scripture, the books that are revealed. Here, there is a general belief, and there is a detailed belief. Yeah, does that make sense? There's an overview belief, and there's a detailed belief. So view is to believe that Allah revealed scripture to the prophets,
generally speaking, to believe that scripture was perfect to believe that scripture was sent from Allah, and it was sent down to those prophets and so on the general things were taught, then, specifically, each individual scripture that were told about the toll right, that was given to Moosa to believe in it, the Injeel that was given to aisyah Allahu wa Salatu was set up to believe in it, there's a board that was given to doubt at a certain to believe in it.
And what we believe about the Quran, the specific details, the Quran is the speech of Allah, it's not created
the poor and has no contradictions and mistakes in it and so on.
But how do we approach what was mentioned in the earliest scriptures?
What our, sometimes the scholars they mentioned this under the mess of Mr. Eliot, Shadow Man koblin, the Shetty that came before us, what do we as Muslims believe about it? So in summary, what we sent just a summary just to
get an idea that
what is mentioned in the previous scripture comes into one of three categories.
Either it is confirmed in the Quran,
it's confirmed for us in the crown, right? So Allah told us, this is what you have to do. It was mentioned in the earlier scripture. And Allah told it to us in the Quran, for example, what we heard here, Balto thirunal, higher to dunya will euro to hirundo abacha. This is mentioned in the early scriptures. And it's mentioned for us in the Quran. And we're told this is the truth, this is for you. This is this is correct, this is what you guys have to follow.
Okay. The second category is something that is mentioned. Or we find it in some of the earlier books that are you know, we don't have it preserved, but what is supposed to be from those books, or it's mentioned in the Quran, and we told that it's not for you.
We told that it's not for you.
And the third category is something which is mentioned, but it's not mentioned whether it is for us or not for us.
Or it's not confirmed whether it really is in that book or not in that book. So if you look at today, you look at for example, the what is said to be the Bible today, what people say this is the Bible. In that book, you will find those three things, you will find things that you know came from Allah. How do you know it came from Allah? Because you open the Quran and it tells you it came from Allah.
For example, what was the first commandment that was given to Musa?
What was the first commandment given to masa? In the Bible? It says the first commandment given to Marcel was along the lines of hero Israel that you have one god you have no god except him.
And he La ilaha illAllah
How do we know this is true? Not the exact words but the first command given to Musa was La ilaha illa Allah because Allah said well Akbar sniff equally Almighty Rasulullah Abdullah which technical toggled we sent to every nation a messenger seeing worship Allah and avoid the first gods, the void, the false gods. Everything that was sent to the first thing sent to every prophet was Latina Halo. So we know for sure that the first commandment that was given to Musa was to hate, we know that for sure. And prohibiting ship prohibiting making a partner with Allah. We know that was the first commandment given to Moses, we don't need the Bible to tell us and we can we know that from the
Quran and from the sun. So
sometimes we see things in the Bible
that we know are false. For example, the Bible saying that
one of the prophets was a drunkard, that he used to be so drunk that he used to find you know these to find him laid out on the ground drunk. We know this is not true, because we know that the prophets were upon the highest standard of character. And we know that the prophets were the best of the people sent to mankind. And we know that they never did anything which would take away from their Prophethood
or which would make the people not believe them. So we know that this is wrong. But there are many things in the Bible today, we don't have confirmation for we don't have confirmation against, we don't have something which tells us it's true. We don't have something which tells us that it's false. So what do we do here? Do we believe in it? Or we don't believe in it?
somebody tells you that
any for example.
Okay, but we don't it doesn't go against a lot. For example, what was the name of use of his younger brother, for example, to the best of my knowledge, this is not mentioned anywhere in the in the Quran, or the Sunnah, that his name was Benny me. This is from the Israeli yet from the
so do we believe it or not?
Maybe that's right. So the correct answer is we stop, we don't believe it or not believe it. Because if you say you don't believe it, you that what could be true that that statement could be true? And if you say you do believe it, you don't have any evidence to be sure. So you can mention it had this I had this what I'm learning is right, what I heard you can mention it. But you don't affirm something, or deny something, until you have a clear proof from the Quran one way or the other. So this is interesting. Why? Because somebody asks you Do you believe in the Torah or not? Of course, we believe in the Torah as it was given to masa. But the Torah that we have today, for example, next
the Torah that they have, is not the Torah that was given to Musa not word for word. It's not the Torah that was given to masa. What it is, is it has elements of the Torah that was given to Muslim, it has pieces still there. And we can see those because they match what we're told in the Quran. And we can see things that were definitely added in a way to Linda, the neck to bone and kitabi, add him there are some people they wrote the book with their own hands, they added, they added into the book with their own hands.
And then there are some things we don't know the truth of it or not. Usually, the interesting thing, and this is what I really want to emphasize is the things we don't know, generally speaking are not important.
Does it really matter? What use of eldest brother was called? Like read? Does it make a difference to your a bother whether what the name of the 12 tribes of
the 12 tribes of Israel, what was the name of each tribe? And what was the name of the Son? And then what was the name of the person they married? And what was the name of this? It doesn't really make a difference to your prayer, it doesn't make a difference. It's interesting only. So you can mention it will have different advantages, right? What about you can mention it doesn't harm anything to mention it. But it doesn't make a big difference. And this is also very true, even for
even for the seal of the prophets. I send them the same thing. You can see that the parts of the Sierra that are really important to act upon, they are preserved with si need rewired. They are Sahar, they have authentic chains of narration. As for the, you know, the small details that are not important in your Eva, those details might be areas where people differ about, you know, was it displaced? Or was it displaced? Did it take place in this month or in this month, but everything you need to worship Allah has been preserved for you. So whatever is in the early books and the early scriptures, that is, what's the word is from the extra details. There is no harm in mentioning it,
but it's not what is critical for you everything that you need has been given to you in the Quran and the Sunnah. And as for the narrations of Benny Israel, there is no harm in mentioning them if they don't go against the Quran, or against the Sunnah. But they are not
essential for you to be able to worship Allah. For you to be able to go to gender, it's not essential that you should know the narrations of the children or is right. And the last point I'll make is the last last one on this
It's really important that people don't waste their time with the narrations of the Israeli art, you know, like to take in too much time with it. We see some people he's like, I'm not a hospice in the Torah and the NGO, you know, he's a specialist in the Torah and NGO. And to me, this is a giant waste of time. It's a big waste of time, specialized in the Quran. Take your time to read the Quran, go through the Tafseer go through the Sierra go through the Hadith go through, you know, there are so much you need in Islam, don't waste your time becoming an expert on the Torah. And because you're only becoming an expert in something that is not even divine in the first place. Because it's
something that's been written by the hands of the people, the original message has been lost. There is no benefit to being an expert in the Torah and in wasting your time with comparative religion is okay. There can be elements in dour, you can use a certain you know, you can, it's nice to know what people believe. But that takes a few days, it should not take your whole life that your whole life is spent studying the Bible, your whole life is spent studying the Torah, your whole life is spent studying the Hindu scriptures. And
what benefit is that maybe you just get an idea what they believe you know a few things about you can quote a few pieces here and there. But it's not necessarily that you should spend your whole life instead of studying the Quran instead of studying Islam, instead of studying the Hadeeth you want to study the Torah and the Injeel. And
this is not a benefit, because those books are not preserved. They are no longer like the books that are mentioned in the Quran. And that's just a bit a bit of a point of benefit on the topic of
a sort of a ruler, the early scriptures that are lies which revealed the general belief in them and the specific belief in them. So that's brings us to the end of sort of Allah and inshallah Allah will be continuing with surah Pilate great, the next class inshallah. So did we have any questions until then?
Is it allowed for them to to read them?
And what is called the Bible today, I don't think a person should be, should be
preoccupied with that if a person has a need to look at something. For example, in a dour conversation, somebody said, I only believe
something which is mentioned in this part of the Bible, or you ask them, why don't you become a Muslim? They said, No, I don't become a Muslim because of this verse in the Bible, there is no harm for the person to take the Bible and read that verse, which they're talking about, or they have a need to take something out. But I don't think that a person should be preoccupied with the,
the the Torah and the Indian, you know, like that they read it, that they study it, that they become busy with it. To be honest, anything you need is already mentioned, from the people of the past who used to study those things, and who used to be an expert, because you have to remember some of the Sahaba of the law.
They came from Christianity and Judaism. Right. So they were they were Jews or Christians before they had knowledge of their scripture. So they brought things of benefit and many times the Prophet sighs lm approved them, he made this
you know, the taqueria? He actually confirmed Yes, this is true. Like when the Jews came and they said that they mentioned the in the Tafseer of the IRA in sort of Zuma where Mercado de la kokkari will outdo Jamie and cabo la to yamaki. Emma was similar to what we are to be I mean, they came and they mentioned what is upon each finger, and that Allah will roll them up and say that I am the king, I am the king and the Prophet size of approved when they said this, he he smiled at them. And he recited one color coded the iron sources at the end of the summer. So those things that's where the benefit is. But as for just a person today, taking the total out of the Injeel only should use
just a limited reference if it is if it's needed, right if they have a particular need to just clarify something or just to explain something, but not to make it something which is their, their what makes them busy or that they are reading it all the time. Because a person also can go astray from that right people. Now we saw people some
people very famous people, they were involved in comparative religion, and some of them left Islam they became atheists or they became Christians because
They became so much into this, you know, reading these things and comparing these things and they became affected. So a person shouldn't busy themselves with it, but just if they need a reference from here or there, and there is no harm and better they don't take the reference from the Bible. Better they take the reference from Islamic books, for example, if they could take it from the book of shiftless, empty Mia a job so he remembered that idea and we'll see, for example, instead of taking it from the, the the Bible and instead of reading the Bible better, you read the job say, be more beneficial for you. Then reading the Taurat of NGO, and Allah knows best. There is no harm in
quoting some of the Israeli act like if there's a need, there is no harm in in just bringing a statement even Kafeel he does it in his Tafseer after he's brought the statement of the early generation sometime he brings brings a statement from the Israeli army from the reports of the children of Israel.
If you haven't done that, okay, then we stop there. That's what I made easy for us to mention Allah knows best or Salatu Salam adequado Mohammed, what Allah le or SAP eh desikan malacanang for watching, please subscribe, share and you can visit Mohammed tim.com
