00:00:00--> 00:00:02

What I'm

00:00:07--> 00:00:07

gonna do

00:00:19--> 00:00:32

was Salatu was salam, ala Abdullah he was suli Nabina Muhammad while he was at the edge Marine, we continuing on with the Tafseer of sore elbow.

00:00:34--> 00:00:38

And we got to the statement of alaris origin cortiva horrible to

00:00:41--> 00:00:42

hear

00:00:43--> 00:00:57

the word obviously the Arabic word half the time the lamb, it means to kill, right? And so poor Tila means to be killed,

00:00:59--> 00:01:06

to be killed. However, many of the scholars have tipsy have they said that cotulla here means Lorina.

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

Laurie may be cursed.

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

May they be cursed.

00:01:17--> 00:01:18

And this year,

00:01:20--> 00:01:31

the word curse or ally in the Arabic language is to be cast out from the Lord's mercy. That's what the word cursed

00:01:32--> 00:01:38

means. So some of the word some of the scholars of TFC

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

they said,

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

Kota means Laurie.

00:01:51--> 00:01:51

And

00:02:03--> 00:02:04

it's also said

00:02:06--> 00:02:14

that the word cotulla here refers to the fact that these people kill the Muslims

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

that they were

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

the Muslims were killed,

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

the Muslims were killed by the

00:02:31--> 00:02:33

imagery of watchmen allowed tada

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

he said,

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

that putting a means lowering

00:02:41--> 00:02:50

means to be cursed and that is to be cast out and to be far away from the mercy of Allah or is it

00:02:51--> 00:03:02

against them, for them to be killed and Allah subhana wa tada is, is cursing them, may they be may they be killed.

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

And these two meanings are obviously

00:03:08--> 00:03:08

similar.

00:03:11--> 00:03:14

Now, before we go any further, who are us habit to

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

the word of the dude

00:03:18--> 00:03:23

is a hole or a trench, which is dug in the ground.

00:03:24--> 00:03:25

And

00:03:26--> 00:03:44

the scholars of Tafseer they differed over whether this trench is a specific trench? In other words, is this referring to a specific group of people? Or is it referring to many times that this has happened over history.

00:03:45--> 00:03:48

And that is that a trench is dug.

00:03:49--> 00:04:08

And the people who believe in Allah are thrown into it, and they are burned alive in that trench. And this is something that has happened more than once in history. So it's not something that just happened one time. Although there is a famous story

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

from Benny, Salafi

00:04:14--> 00:04:19

regarding a particular group of people that were killed in this way, or

00:04:20--> 00:04:30

a particular group that were killed in this way. So it could refer to that one particular group that were killed in this way.

00:04:31--> 00:04:49

I could refer to all of the times that the believers have been killed like this. In other words, they dug a trench and they flew the believers into it. And they burned them with fire until they died.

00:04:54--> 00:04:57

Now before we go any further with the story of us, how do

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

we need to go back

00:05:01--> 00:05:24

We need to ask ourselves is there is this sentence cookie law of habit of dude? Is this the answer to why a law school by the sky and a life origin swore by local piano and a last part of Ara swore by everything which witnesses and everything which is witnessed.

00:05:25--> 00:05:29

Is this the reason why is this job of Casa

00:05:30--> 00:05:45

in other words was somebody that in brooch will Yeoman marut worship? When I should quoting quoted us however, is that the reason why Allah swore by those those faults for in order to

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

highlight this, some of the scholars of Tafseer said so even Okay, in Rahim, Allah, Allah did it even Okay, and he said, there is no job or custom here. There is no sentence for which a lot of small balls are lost swore balls, Bibles things for themselves.

00:06:09--> 00:06:26

I'm hoping this makes sense. But the idea behind it is that allied soldier didn't swear by those things, in order to make a different state, but those things in themselves are the reason that Allah subhanaw taala swore by them.

00:06:28--> 00:06:31

And that was the opinion of Abraham A while back.

00:06:33--> 00:06:43

So for example, a larger swore by European will yoshimoto, a law school by yoga piano, there is no need for a sentence after that.

00:06:45--> 00:06:49

There is no need for a sentence after that, this yomo piano, that's enough

00:06:51--> 00:06:55

young piano, it doesn't need anything further.

00:06:56--> 00:07:13

And some of the scholars of Tafseer, they said the Java concept is much harder to be understood from the context. And it is something like lead to verifying that you will certainly be resurrected, you will certainly be resurrected.

00:07:15--> 00:07:27

So others they also said other things as well, some of the scholars of Pepsi or they said that the sentence that is intended is in the barber shop, pickup luxury,

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

that the

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

torment of Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:36--> 00:08:15

is certainly is certainly severe, the vengeance of your Lord is certainly severe. Some of them said this is the reason. So they say all of this was somebody that it was really all about road wash, I think marshwood is for the for the point of in Nevada shall become less shady. However, we think it was best that this is not the case, because it's very far away. And we've covered already, that generally speaking in Arabic, we don't leave a long gap between an oath and between or between swearing by something and between the purpose. For example, if you were to see a white line,

00:08:16--> 00:08:20

for example, you want to say, Wallah, he.

00:08:22--> 00:08:31

I'm a Muslim, for example. It's very rare that somebody says, Well, lucky. Did you bring that thing that I asked you last week? Okay.

00:08:33--> 00:08:55

Do you see what I mean? It's very rare that you leave a big gap between seeing a lot here and between what you intended to say for that's not normal in Arabic, that you leave such a big gap like that. And that's why we don't think and Allah knows best that the that the heat the sentence intended here is in the bottle Shabbat beaker. Lesson.

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

It's one of two things and Allah knows best.

00:09:00--> 00:09:28

Either it is a sentence which is understood from the context led to Baraka, you will certainly be resurrected, meaning by the heavens that contain the stars, and by the day, which has been promised, and by the witness and those that are witnessed, you will certainly be resurrected. And that's understood from the meaning of the song, where did we get resurrection from? The whole sort of the theme of the surah is about resurrection and punishment

00:09:29--> 00:09:50

and or reward for what you have, you know, what you've done recompense for what you've done and resurrection. So some of the scholars said it's understood that the topic of the surah is makes you understand that the the sentence intended here is you will be resurrected, you will certainly be resurrected. Or and Allah knows best This seems to me to be

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

the better of the one of the strongest opinions is the opinion of liberal claim, that these things are sworn by enough of them for their for their own selves.

00:10:00--> 00:10:28

It's not that I was swearing by something for the purpose of something else, a lot of swearing by Yokoyama to show you the importance of your vocal yarn, and a lot of swearing by the heavens, and by the witness and everything that was witnessed, because of the importance of those things, they don't need something else, there doesn't need to be another topic that is intended. Those are, are big enough in of themselves and important enough in of themselves, and a lot of space. So we go back to us hub.

00:10:31--> 00:11:03

So here, we said that these people were a group of the disbelievers. They were a group of the disbelievers and this group of the disbelievers. They tortured and killed a group of believers. Again, we said the scholars of Tafseer they differed, is it a particular story that's intended here, or the fact this has happened more than once in history, is it that is the meaning here in the eye is every every group who did this,

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

all of the people who did this,

00:11:09--> 00:11:20

as for which group it is we don't have a text and Islamic evidence for which exact group of people is meant by us harbor.

00:11:21--> 00:11:24

However, the closest thing we have,

00:11:26--> 00:11:38

the closest thing we have is a story relating to something that happened prior to the coming of the prophet SAW A lot of it was send them and after the time of peace,

00:11:40--> 00:11:46

and that is that a very large number of people were killed in this way. They

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

there was an

00:11:50--> 00:12:05

tyrannical evil ruler. And that person, when the people accepted Islam and believed in the prophet of their time, then he commanded for them to be

00:12:06--> 00:12:22

he commanded for them to to be have a hole dug. And he told them to recant from their religion and turn back from their religion. And when they did it, he pushed him into the ditch into the trench, and he burned them alive. And he sat watching them die like that.

00:12:25--> 00:12:51

But because this has happened more than once, and because it has happened, both inside and outside of the Arabian Peninsula, we don't have a like a clear evidence which says to us which particular one of these events it was referring to, except that some of the scholars of Pepsi have mentioned it. Heidi from the profits on the wall, it was similar with regard to

00:12:52--> 00:12:53

a particular

00:12:55--> 00:12:59

instance or a particular story. And we'll come to that in short one time.

00:13:03--> 00:13:07

So Allah subhanaw, taala, said, quoted as Harvard,

00:13:08--> 00:13:14

I'm nerdy, that he wrote, and nerdy that he, I love

00:13:17--> 00:13:21

containing the fire full of Phew.

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

That was the fire that they tortured.

00:13:26--> 00:13:34

The Muslims with. Then allies, oh, Jen said Eva whom Miranda who wrote, they were sitting

00:13:36--> 00:14:00

on it, on top of it, and in other words near to it. And what it was, is that when they tortured those Muslims, they didn't leave them in that fire and walk away. They sat and watched them die. They sat and watched them being tortured in that in that fight. And then allies allegiance, said wahoo, Milan, if I would have been with me.

00:14:02--> 00:14:10

And they will certainly be they will certainly witnesses for being witnessed.

00:14:12--> 00:14:15

As to what they did to those believers.

00:14:17--> 00:14:23

They will certainly be witnessed what it is that they did to those believers.

00:14:33--> 00:14:40

They're no wiser just said women are coming home, build up new build it as is.

00:14:42--> 00:14:50

Their only complaint against those believers was that they believed in a wall and it is.

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

Here it's important to notice that those Muslims who were being killed like that and tortured like that they hadn't done

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

Anything to oppose that those people who did it to them, they hadn't fought against them or they hadn't rebelled against them, they hadn't tried to harm them in any way, the only thing that they had done

00:15:13--> 00:15:15

is to believe, you know,

00:15:16--> 00:15:17

and it is inherent.

00:15:18--> 00:15:22

Here, there is a very, very important benefit

00:15:24--> 00:15:32

to be had in these two names Li Z's, and Hamid, in this particular context in this particular Island.

00:15:36--> 00:15:44

I actually want to ask you guys a question about this, because a lot of times what happens is we come across the names of Allah mentioned in different items.

00:15:46--> 00:15:54

And we don't really think about why that particular name is used here. So and it is the name of Allah eisenerz.

00:15:55--> 00:15:59

which refers to allows might a loss, power,

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

loss, honor,

00:16:03--> 00:16:08

and a last name and Hamid, that allies always worthy of praise?

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

What do you understand

00:16:12--> 00:16:29

by these two names being mentioned in this particular Ayah? So Allah has mentioned how these disbelievers dug a trench and the through the believers into it, who did no crime except for the fact that they believed in Allah.

00:16:30--> 00:16:44

And then they filled it full of fuel and fire. And they set them on fire, and they sat and they watch them die. And then Allah describes himself as a disease, and how,

00:16:47--> 00:16:54

what is the link between those two names, and what was done to those believers?

00:17:03--> 00:17:32

Or I can even make it more general and say, anytime the Muslims are tortured, because this is one, like we said, some of the scholars have tipsy they said, this is not one instance that's referred to here. It's not one particular torture. But it's every time that the Muslims are tortured like this, and expand even to talk about any time that Muslims are being tortured. You know, we see now on the news in place in the world, like torture and the people are being tortured.

00:17:34--> 00:17:53

In the worst possible examples of you cannot even imagine doing these things to even like to an insect to an animal like how you would how they did to those things. But why did allies origin mentioned these two names that I end up having to?

00:18:14--> 00:18:15

Did we have any answers?

00:18:40--> 00:18:41

power,

00:18:44--> 00:18:46

ultimate power, and

00:18:49--> 00:18:59

praise only belongs to Allah. Definitely. That's true. I still am looking for the connection between what happened to those people and between the name of a lot

00:19:40--> 00:19:40

here.

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

There are two

00:19:45--> 00:19:51

things that you need to think about. The first is that real honor

00:19:52--> 00:19:54

and power only belongs to Allah.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

And so the power these people execute over the Muslims.

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

Looks like they were the ones in control, right? Doesn't it look like that? I mean, they, they dug trenches, they burned them alive, they sat watching.

00:20:11--> 00:20:33

It feels like if someone were to look at that without email, if someone were to look at that picture without a man, they would say that these disbelievers had complete power over them. When in reality, the situation is the opposite way around. It is a law that had complete power over those disbelievers.

00:20:36--> 00:20:37

Okay, that's one point.

00:20:39--> 00:20:47

The second point is, Allah azza wa jal is praised for all of his decree.

00:20:48--> 00:20:51

Allah is praised for all of the things he decrees

00:20:52--> 00:21:00

and this can only come with email. So their email in Allah that they believed in that is

00:21:02--> 00:21:10

that they believe that Allah was to praise even though Allah decreed for those disbelievers to have power over.

00:21:14--> 00:21:19

Allah decreed those disbelievers to have power over them.

00:21:20--> 00:21:22

And Allah deserves to be praised.

00:21:24--> 00:21:42

Now here, this is this is something you have to understand. You have to understand that you have to understand here, the reality of our laws decree, everything that our law decrees is wise. And when you believe that this is

00:21:44--> 00:21:57

this is what shows a person's emotion and when you believe one of the things that shows a person's email and Omar, when you really believe that everything that Allah decrees has a wisdom behind.

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

Look at the atheist study.

00:22:01--> 00:22:04

When you ask the atheist, why are you atheist?

00:22:06--> 00:22:12

You can almost quote them, that they will give an example of something like us having

00:22:14--> 00:22:24

they will say how can God exist? When people are being tortured? How can God exists when the believers are being are suffering?

00:22:25--> 00:22:34

Look at these people, they were burned alive, and they believed a man in the face of Allah and Allah deserves praise for everything.

00:22:36--> 00:23:10

And this will lie is very, very powerful statement. Because it shows you that every single thing that a lot decrease is perfect, and everything is wise. Now, the question now comes, how can you make a mistake? How can you be perfect the people who believed in Allah, who had a man who sacrificed and they are the ones getting burned and the people who are doing the burning are sat with their feet up by the fire, watching these people die? How can this be

00:23:11--> 00:23:18

happy it worthy of praise? How can I love you with your praise? Allah Allah subhanaw taala is worthy of praise.

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

Just want you to fast forward

00:23:23--> 00:23:27

15 minutes from that moment, where are those people who are burned to the fire

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

they are getting

00:23:34--> 00:23:45

the reward of the Shaheed Shaheed a single drop of the blood of a Shaheed they don't feel anything, anything beyond the first drop of blood.

00:23:47--> 00:23:50

And their souls go into the bellies of

00:23:51--> 00:23:54

birds that fly through paradise, right.

00:23:56--> 00:24:05

And they have from the blessings of Allah so much that one of them asks a lot of Allah send me back to the dunya so that I can eat again.

00:24:07--> 00:24:40

And you know, the story of the Sahabi who, when the rule of rule, the baizen time ruler wanted to put him into the, into a pot of boiling oil. And he started to cry. And the ruler thought that he's crying because I got him value. You're like, I'm gonna burn you out. I'm gonna put you into a pot of boiling oil. He said, Why are you crying? He said, I wish I had as many lives as I had has on my body so that I can keep on getting burned in the soil and I can keep on getting the rewards from Allah.

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

Because will lie the only thing these people look at is the dunya. You look at that one second, and then somebody has the nerve to speak badly about a law, but they're only looking at that one moment. They're not even looking at what happens to those people after that.

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

how Allah gives them the reward and the paradise about high levels that are like gives them in gender there are 100 levels that are reserved only for

00:25:11--> 00:25:12

the Shahada.

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

Only for the people who are martyred for the sake of Allah

00:25:18--> 00:25:26

will look at how the atheists and how many new savvy people have come to think these days that they look at that and say, that doesn't deserve praise.

00:25:28--> 00:25:35

Allah has people got defeated love Allah. Now, let me ask you, where are the people who put them in the fire?

00:25:36--> 00:25:39

Those people who are sitting by the side of the fire, where are they now?

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

being tortured in the fire

00:25:45--> 00:26:11

of Allah as the widget, which is greater than the fire that they made for those believers and they're being tortured in it every day and every night. And when it comes to Yokoyama, the torture will be worse than the torture they're having in their graves until this day, until this moment now, and they're being tortured in their graves every single day with fire since the day that they lit that fire for

00:26:12--> 00:26:13

those people.

00:26:15--> 00:26:20

Now doesn't that deserve praise? deserves Allah deserves to be praised for that.

00:26:22--> 00:26:34

And it shows you that is belong to who is belong to Allah. But the only people who realize that is belong to Allah, other people who believed in Allah

00:26:35--> 00:26:42

Illa and you may know, belying ISIS, those who believed in Allah Al Aziz and ham.

00:26:45--> 00:27:12

And that's why I'm fascinated by this are fascinated by this idea. I'm fascinated by this idea in the context of atheism today, because if you were to ask, I watched a documentary once by atheists, and they interviewed a handful of very famous atheists, you know, they went around interviewing many, many, many very famous atheists. And I would say, almost all of them

00:27:14--> 00:27:18

mentioned suffering in the world as the reason why they don't believe in God.

00:27:20--> 00:27:23

Look at that, and then look at this one

00:27:24--> 00:27:32

in you know, villa in ISIS and the only crime was that they believed in Allah, Allah Aziz and Hamlet.

00:27:34--> 00:27:39

So these two names here are intended originally Brookfield, he said for a long time,

00:27:40--> 00:27:48

he said, meaning that they had no sin, except that he man in Allah, Al Aziz, the one

00:27:49--> 00:27:52

who will never disgrace

00:27:58--> 00:28:00

The one who would never

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

would never cause to be lost.

00:28:04--> 00:28:06

The one that seeks his protection and harmony,

00:28:07--> 00:28:13

who deserves praise for all of his statements and actions, and his Shelley and his color.

00:28:15--> 00:28:20

Even if he decreed for these servants to be

00:28:21--> 00:28:30

or to to suffer at the hands of the disbelievers, he is that it is inherent, even if the reason for that is hidden from many people.

00:28:32--> 00:28:39

So even a cafe he explains that many people cannot see the we cannot see that the praise of a lion that

00:28:41--> 00:28:50

many people cannot, they cannot see there is a loss of habitat. They don't believe in the lies which are properly they don't believe in a lot or

00:28:52--> 00:29:05

they couldn't see that. And yet so Pamela, if you were to look at it in the simplest way, just look at you know, fast forward 15 minutes or half an hour, one hour or whatever. And asked Where are those people?

00:29:06--> 00:29:11

Then ask all these people who taught you those things that our family would

00:29:13--> 00:29:13

have?

00:29:16--> 00:29:17

Dude, where are they?

00:29:18--> 00:29:24

Where Where are they? The hotel follow me back here. Do you see even any

00:29:25--> 00:29:26

effect left of them?

00:29:28--> 00:29:29

Nothing.

00:29:30--> 00:29:40

A loss of power Tyler wipe them off the face of the earth and wiped off the face of the earth at remembrance of it. Nobody remembers them nobody.

00:29:42--> 00:29:43

There is

00:29:44--> 00:29:49

nothing worthwhile remain. Lost Planet Allah destroyed

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

and a Lost Planet Allah protected for those believers that were tortured that were harmed. Allah protected for them their hereafter.

00:30:02--> 00:30:12

And you need to understand that because otherwise too many people are asking this question, Muslims suffering all over the world, why are these Muslims suffering all over the world?

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

Why is it

00:30:15--> 00:30:17

why in half year seven,

00:30:18--> 00:30:23

allocated a million less, even though many, many people can't

00:30:24--> 00:30:28

understand why this happened and can't understand the wisdom of it.

00:30:30--> 00:30:44

Just believe that Allah has infinite wisdom. And you will start to see the wisdom in just some small examples of the wisdom of allies are genuinely decrease everything that a large decrease is deserving of praise.

00:30:45--> 00:30:58

Everything that a lot decreases passivity is a place. And the way we see things and this is the second point I want to highlight. The way we see things is very upside down.

00:30:59--> 00:31:01

We look at things only in the way of the tune.

00:31:03--> 00:31:27

We only look at, okay, this person lost money in the dunya. This must be bad. We have not even any, you know, we are so ignorant as human beings. We don't even know what will happen tomorrow. We don't even wonder what will happen in that afternoon. And then we have the audacity to accuse Allah, that Allah is not praiseworthy, for what he did, that Allah has brought this and there is no reason for it.

00:31:30--> 00:31:35

If the person even looked at what happened, a few hours later, they would see the wisdom.

00:31:36--> 00:31:43

People rush. So you must never ever think badly of Allah because something bad happened to some Muslims around the world.

00:31:44--> 00:32:31

Rather allies or agenda told us many things that will help us here. The first thing I liked all this is this dunya is temporary. this dunya is not meant to be a place of paradise. So the minute you stop expecting paradise from it, you will be much happier. And you will be much more comfortable with what happens in terms of the tests and trials of this life. When you stop living in this life as though it's paradise. This life is not meant to be your paradise. There is no promise from Allah, that this dunya should be a place of happiness, and contentment and comfort and paradise. That's not what it's meant for. So as soon as you are treating this dunia as though it's paradise, you are

00:32:31--> 00:32:32

going to be disappointed.

00:32:33--> 00:32:55

You're going to be disappointed. And you're going to become start to become disappointed with the decree of Allah algorithm, which is the opposite of what a believer is supposed to be, believe I supposed to have contact with a large degree, but you start becoming disappointed with it. Because you expect that this dunya should be luxury and should be happiness and should be called. That's one thing. The second thing is

00:32:56--> 00:32:59

that what really matters is the hereafter.

00:33:00--> 00:33:20

That's when it really matters. That's what really matters. So if you are successful in the Hereafter, it doesn't matter what happened in this world. Because a lot of this work. And our last kind of data doesn't give it to those necessarily that he loves all that he does a lot of times jr doesn't weigh anything in the sight of Allah.

00:33:23--> 00:33:24

We also

00:33:25--> 00:33:35

when we see things happening, we realize that Allah has told us the cause of those things. And that the cause of those things comes back to us.

00:33:36--> 00:33:38

And our since our facade will be better we will

00:33:40--> 00:33:53

be back so that alienness allies origin has made corruption appear at London at sea, because of what the hands of men have earned, we committed sins and then allies which caused

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

these sins to have an effect upon cause and effect upon the Muslims.

00:33:59--> 00:34:44

So we also even know that the heckler behind it, or part of the hikma behind it is so that we may turn back to Allah, so that we repent to Allah we come back to Allah, we see what happened to those Muslims with we realize that we need to come back to Allah. And we change as a as a community as as Muslims, we change and we repent to Allah, we ask Allah to change our situation. The next thing that we have also is the opportunity to help those people and to show the difference between the people who will stand up for the religion of Allah and those who will not. Without tests like this, you cannot see the difference between the people who are going to stand up for Islam and those who are

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

not. You see, when you see these things are happening all over the world. And you see really people who are they are really willing to stand up for the sake of Allah, not by doing harm, because doing harm doesn't benefit How can you benefit yourself doing harm? How

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

You're going to benefit the Muslims by doing

00:35:03--> 00:35:16

what you see people really doing whatever Allah has given them the trifle, they are making dua for them they are trying to give for them. They're trying to send support for them in which any way they are allowed them which ever way is a bit available to them.

00:35:18--> 00:36:05

So Allah azza wa jal shows those people who will support his religion, and these are just some of the wisdoms behind the things that happen to Muslims around the world. We know the causes our sins, we know that we have to turn back to Allah. We know that Allah azza wa jal makes these things happen to remind us that we need to come back to him. We know that our lives origin makes this happen. These things happen so that some people can be taken a Shahada as martyrs, we know that our Lost Planet Allah made this world as a place of tests and trials and difficulties. And when we bring all these things together, we understand that a Lost Planet Allah in what he decrees, even the worst of

00:36:05--> 00:36:16

calamities that happened to the Muslims, there is praise alized deserving of praise for what he decreed to happen. Allies deserves praise for what he decreed to happen.

00:36:18--> 00:36:45

And it's important we understand that because this is what will give you the right perspective as it really comes to the decree of Allah. Allah has decreed what Allah decreed Alaska and you understand, and you become stronger at bearing bad things when they happen to bad things happen to you, you become stronger, you become. Yeah, I understand that. Yes, it is very hard. Nobody

00:36:46--> 00:36:54

finds it easy to see something happened to themselves or to their people. They look, nobody likes that to happen.

00:36:55--> 00:37:02

But a person learns lessons from Why does Allah decree these things to happen because of our sins, return back to Allah,

00:37:03--> 00:37:36

to give us an opportunity to give them an opportunity, because Paradise is what matters because the dunya doesn't matter. Because this is a test and attract all of them. Many, many we are not I can't give you all the reasons because nobody knows all the reasons except Allah. But we just pick examples. So a person understands why Allah is deserving of praise. When these calamities happen to the Muslims, that our allies or Japanese icwsm have, he is almighty, all powerful and deserving of praise.

00:37:38--> 00:37:42

There is another point of benefit that I wanted to take on a different angle from this side.

00:37:44--> 00:37:54

And that is the reality of those people who disbelieve and the reality of our relationship with them.

00:37:56--> 00:37:59

And that is, you should never ever expect

00:38:00--> 00:38:16

the people who differ with you in your religion. And they don't believe in what you believe in. You should never ever expect from these people that they're going to help you or never expect that these people are going to bring anything good.

00:38:18--> 00:38:26

Perhaps Allah subhanaw taala was soft in the hearts of some of them for a time. But you should definitely not expect.

00:38:29--> 00:38:33

And you should understand and take a lesson from history.

00:38:35--> 00:38:36

For example,

00:38:38--> 00:38:46

you can pick any country where the Muslims have been tortured, really bad, like us have to

00:38:47--> 00:38:52

pick any country in recent history or distant history.

00:38:53--> 00:39:08

Now look at how the Muslims behaved with the people who ended up killing them and torturing in most of the cases, there was a degree of closeness and a degree of

00:39:10--> 00:39:50

maybe even in many cases friendship before this event happened. And when it happened, what happened, the Muslims were they found the person who was claiming to be you know that they were going to support them or help them ended up being the person who liked the fire. That happened in so many times in history. You have to take a lesson from that, that will lie these people they don't want any good for you. They don't want good for you. And if they are given an opportunity, they'll be the first one to like they're going to fight a fight with each other over who likes the match. That is how they will be. So don't expect anything different from the

00:39:51--> 00:39:56

one of the saddest things is when you see the situation of the Muslims today

00:39:57--> 00:40:00

and you see that they expect that the

00:40:00--> 00:40:31

People who fight against Allah who fight against the religion of Allah are going to do something good for them, or are going to give them some kind of rights are going to somehow look after her like, look at history, look at what they've done to the Muslim since the every can pick a country, you can see it. And you see many situations that Muslims were very, very close to the same people who turned off the same people who killed that the same people who didn't just kill them. I mean, they didn't pull a trigger and kill them and they tortured them.

00:40:32--> 00:40:44

That is what that is the reality of the hatred that exists in the heart of those people who disbelieve for Islam and for the Muslims. You have to realize that

00:40:45--> 00:40:49

you have to not kill yourself, you know that these people are going to bring you some kind of good.

00:40:50--> 00:40:58

You have to learn the lesson from history. And from these events that happen. So you realize that your allegiance is to Islam and the Muslims.

00:40:59--> 00:41:02

Your allegiance is to Islam and to themselves.

00:41:03--> 00:41:08

And you can look at examples of what happened to the Muslims

00:41:10--> 00:41:30

in history, recent history in different countries where the Muslims have been really badly tortured and killed. You can look at more distant history in the some of the famous invasions where the Normans invaded the Muslim lands. Did they know like Elijah said, No, he didn't he know what I did.

00:41:32--> 00:41:40

hour they didn't give you they didn't give the Muslims any, even the tiniest amount of rights.

00:41:41--> 00:42:15

They didn't give them even the tiniest amount of rights. They didn't, even the way they killed them was not like, you wouldn't even kill an insect like that. They slaughtered them. And that's the reality of the situation, our loss of habitat. I showed that to you many, many times. So we're not seeing that with regard to the non Muslims that you mistreat them. But just don't be fooled by it. Don't be a person who is fooled as allies or just said Hi, pedophile, bah, bah, bah, bah, bah, to feel pseudo.

00:42:17--> 00:42:21

Hatred has come from their mouths, and what their hearts conceal is much worse.

00:42:58--> 00:43:01

Some of the scholars of Tafseer in history,

00:43:02--> 00:43:17

they said that the people from us huddled due to torture the Muslims in the trench. Actually, they say there is no I mean, there is not a narration for this. But they said they fell into it. And they died in the same trench that they torture themselves.

00:43:19--> 00:43:33

They said that when they, when they were sitting, they were sitting on the edge of it. And they were watching the boss people die, that when they died, the side of the trench caved in and they fell into their own trench and died.

00:43:35--> 00:43:45

And that's another if it's true, we don't have a clear evidence for it. It's mentioned in some of the stories of history. If it's true, that's even more of an evidence to show you

00:43:46--> 00:43:53

that an Africa we're not talking the eventual end outcome will be for the believers

00:44:03--> 00:44:04

living

00:44:09--> 00:44:15

here, Allah subhanaw taala continues to talk about

00:44:17--> 00:44:23

their belief in Allah Subhana Allah Allah describes himself. So Allah describes

00:44:25--> 00:44:27

you two boys can sit separately from

00:44:32--> 00:44:33

no smoking like that is

00:44:37--> 00:44:50

a lie soldier describes himself as the one who has the dominion of the heavens and the earth. Everything in the heavens and the earth belongs to Allah. When you

00:44:51--> 00:44:55

when you hear that everything in the heavens and earth belongs to Allah, what do you then feel?

00:44:57--> 00:45:00

What do you understand from that? You've heard what

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

What happened to those people how they were killed than our losses and levita?

00:45:11--> 00:45:11

What do you think?

00:45:29--> 00:45:30

allies Magennis can control?

00:45:32--> 00:45:36

Everything, everything is in the control of a lot. Everything belongs to Allah.

00:45:37--> 00:45:44

Also from the things you can take from this is that those people and their lives also belong to Allah.

00:45:46--> 00:45:47

Is that not true?

00:45:49--> 00:46:14

That they also belong to Allah. So it is in the hands of Allah, what are his origin does, you are a slave of Allah. What Allah does with you is in the hands of Allah, you don't have a choice, but from the mercy of allies that Allah will not cause you to be lost in the outcome of what will happen. The eventual outcome of what happened. Allah didn't cause those people to be lost, but everything belongs to Allah subhana wa, heavens and earth.

00:46:16--> 00:46:18

While la vida could be changing,

00:46:19--> 00:46:21

that nothing, I'm here,

00:46:22--> 00:46:27

this is where we bring this topic we start to bring this topic to a conclusion.

00:46:29--> 00:46:30

Allah azza wa jal

00:46:32--> 00:46:48

is witness over everything we said in the beginning of the sword will show you the more my sweet. Some of them said the showerhead is Allah, meaning allies, the one that witnesses everything, will love our coalition chain, every single thing that is done

00:46:49--> 00:46:51

every single thing that is done

00:46:52--> 00:46:57

to the Muslims, or to someone else, everything that happens around the world, aloneness is

00:47:00--> 00:47:00

alive.

00:47:01--> 00:47:45

So this gives two things from the side of the believer, it gives you comfort, how does it give you comfort? It gives you comfort that whatever happens to you, Allah is witnessing. Allah knows what's happening to you. Allah knows what those people did. Ally's origin knows. And Allah subhanaw taala will take each act to account for what they did. That's the first and from the side of the of those enemies of Islam. What does this tell you? It tells you that they should never feel that they're going to escape. And this is the intended meaning here towards the people that are attributes it was how it was before the Prophet Mohammed Salah, love it.

00:47:47--> 00:47:52

But when this soldier was revealed in MK, what was happening in Macaca time.

00:47:54--> 00:47:55

What was happening to the Muslims in Makkah.

00:48:00--> 00:48:24

They will be tortured, right? They will be tortured. Will la vida Khushi che, Allah is witnessed over everything. You saw those Muslims that were being tortured the likes of the family of Yes, to whom the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said sobre la I said for him no ethical agenda, the patient or family of the asset for your destination his parents.

00:48:26--> 00:48:28

So here we are.

00:48:29--> 00:48:36

Those people from college who were torturing the Muslims, what did they know? Now they are scared.

00:48:37--> 00:48:42

Because lalizou agenda reminds them of us how the

00:48:43--> 00:49:00

people who did this they lit the trench and what happened to them. Allah Subhana Allah knows what they will do. A lot will take them to account as Allah will take them to account. So Allah will take you to account or coloration for what you are doing to

00:49:01--> 00:49:04

the Muslims. At the time this surah was

00:49:07--> 00:49:08

was revealed.

00:49:09--> 00:49:13

And this increases the Muslim in a solid.

00:49:17--> 00:49:34

And really, if you were to take all of the things that are lost said about himself in this war, it makes a person very strong in bearing and coping with calamities that happened to them and to other people around them that they love.

00:49:36--> 00:49:57

Allah told you that he is a license so all honor and power and might is in his hands, that he is ill having everything he does is worthy of praise. There's a wisdom in everything he does. He told you that everything in the heavens and the earth belongs to him. And he told you that he is a witness of everything. If you take these four things.

00:49:59--> 00:49:59

This is

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

What it does, it builds your heart to be extremely strong

00:50:06--> 00:50:07

and extremely

00:50:10--> 00:50:12

patient in the face of

00:50:13--> 00:50:15

calamities and hardships.

00:50:17--> 00:50:26

It makes you extremely strong. And it makes you extremely patient in the face of calamities and hardships. And that is one of the things that you see

00:50:27--> 00:50:28

from the

00:50:29--> 00:50:39

sources that are McKeon, the source that were revealed in Makkah, you see this, that allies origin is building these characters within the believers.

00:50:43--> 00:50:48

And allies, the agenda tells them what happened to the people before and how they remain patient.

00:50:49--> 00:50:54

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said they came before you imagine was sawed in half.

00:50:56--> 00:50:57

And he did not leave his religion.

00:50:59--> 00:51:02

They cut him in half. And he didn't leave his religion.

00:51:03--> 00:51:06

He didn't leave his religion. These,

00:51:07--> 00:51:13

this part of Revelation is making the hearts of the believers strong.

00:51:14--> 00:51:27

And making them have subtle and patience in the face of calamities. And it's building that characteristic in them, so that they are able to manage the situation that they were in.

00:51:28--> 00:51:35

And they came out of that and look at what they achieved. Look at what they achieved with the permission of Allah when you look later on to Medina.

00:51:36--> 00:51:45

And what the Muslims did with the help of allies origin, you see that Allah subhanaw taala, these people were not like ordinary people.

00:51:47--> 00:52:34

Allies or gel gave them a special tarbiat special nurturing, he nurtured them to be extremely, extremely strong, extremely patient, they suffered some of the worst torture and attacks that anyone has suffered in history. And they came out of that. And they went on to do the things that we read on in the car, in the battles in what how the society was and what happened when the Muslims were in control in Medina, and how our last part of Allah, the whole of that part of the land, and that part of the earth, all of it came to Islam. Allah subhanaw taala built this, these characteristics inside of them, and built up their hearts. And this is one of the things you see in this list that were

00:52:34--> 00:52:36

revealed. In

00:52:37--> 00:52:38

that were revealed. And

00:52:41--> 00:52:43

I want to before we finish

00:52:47--> 00:52:47

to

00:52:53--> 00:52:59

the meantime, if anyone has any questions they can ask them on the while we're waiting for the people to ask the questions.

00:53:00--> 00:53:02

I want to bring the Heidi from science.

00:53:38--> 00:53:40

The hydrogen simulscan here

00:53:42--> 00:53:44

the number of the Hadeeth is

00:53:46--> 00:53:49

3005. I think

00:53:50--> 00:53:55

it's a mistake from the headings of sohaib. Rob, you'll love it.

00:53:58--> 00:54:40

They live the king before you and he had a magician. As the magician grew old. He said to the king, I have grown old. Send a young boy to me so that I should teach him magic. The king sent him a young man so that he should train him and on his way to the magician the man found a monk sitting there. The man listen to the monks talk and was impressed by it. It became his habit there on his way to the magician event the monk and he said that he came to the magician meet the magician beat him because of the delay. He made a complaint is that to the month and he said to him when you feel afraid of the magician, see members of my family hi to team and when you feel afraid of your family,

00:54:41--> 00:54:59

seeing the magician had to tame it so happened that they came a huge piece of prayer blocked away of the people. And the young boy said I will come to know today whether the magician is superior or the monkey superior. He picked up a stone and said Oh Allah if the affair of the monk is dear to you that the affair of the magician caused them

00:55:00--> 00:55:20

To this animal so that the people should be able to move about free, he threw that stone towards it and killed and the people began to move on the path free. The young man came to the monk and informed him. And the monk said, Son, today you are superior to me, your affairs come to a stage where I find you to be put to trial. And in case you are put to trial, don't

00:55:22--> 00:55:24

don't give information about or don't tell about.

00:55:26--> 00:55:46

The young man began to treat the blind and those suffering from leprosy. And he began to cure people from all kinds of films. When the Companion of the kingwood gone blind heard about him, he came to him with numerous gifts and said, If you cure me, all these things that collected here would be yours. He said, I myself do not cure anyone. It is Allah.

00:55:55--> 00:55:57

I myself, do not cure

00:55:58--> 00:55:58

anyone.

00:56:00--> 00:56:37

It is Allahu ques. And if you affirm faith in Allah, I will ask a lot of security. He affirmed his faith and online, a lot of purity. And he came to the king and sat by his side as he used to sit before the king said to him who restored your eyesight. He said, My Lord, that appointment said it means your Lord is one besides me. He said, My Lord, and your Lord is Allah. So they came to call to him and tortured him to give a clue of the boy, the young man was summoned. And the king said to him, or boy, it has been conveyed to me that you become so proficient in your magic, that you cure the blind and those suffering from leprosy, and you do such and such a thing. Thereupon, he said, I

00:56:37--> 00:56:44

cannot cure anyone, it is Allah who cures than the king to call the payment began to torture him. So he gave a clue about the mark.

00:56:45--> 00:57:19

The monk was someone that it was said to him, you should turn back from your religion, he refused to do so that he ordered for a soul to be brought. And when he was done, the king placed it in the middle of his head, and tore him into parts until he fell down. Then the quality of the king was brought in it was said to him turn back in your religion, and he refused to do so. Then a soul was placed in the middle of his head, it was torn apart, fell down, then the young boy was brought, and it was said to him turn back from your religion, he refused to do so. And he was handed over to a group of the courtiers. And it was said to take him to such and such amount of making climb up that

00:57:19--> 00:57:53

mountain, and when you reach the top, asked him to renounce his faith, but if he refuses to do so that drawing from the mountain, so they took him and made him climb up the mountain, and he said, por la, save me from them in any way that you wish, then the mountain began to quick and they all fell down, the person can walk into the king, the king said, What has happened to your companions, he said, Allah save me from them. Then he handed him to some other met people. And he said, Take him and carry him in a small boat. And when you reach the middle of the ocean, I asked him to announce his religion. But if he does not renounce his religion, throw him into the water. So they took him

00:57:53--> 00:58:28

and they said, all I see you from them and what they want to do, the boat turned over and they were drowned. And he came walking to the king. And the king said to him, what has happened to your companions? He said, Allah saved me from them. Then he said to the king, you cannot kill me until you do what I asked you to do. He said, What is that? He said, You should gather the people in a plane, and how many by the trunk of a tree, then take hold of an arrow from the quiver and say In the Name of Allah, the Lord of young boys, that shoot an arrow, and if you do that you'll be able to kill, so they can call the people in open plane, and tie the boy to the trunk of a tree. Then he

00:58:28--> 00:58:37

took hold of an arrow from his quiver, and he placed the arrow in the ball. And he said, In the Name of Allah, the Lord of the young boy, that he shot an arrow and it hit his temple.

00:58:38--> 00:59:14

The boy placed his hands upon the temple where the arrow heating, and he died. And the people said, We affirm our faith in the Lord of this young man, we affirm our faith in the Lord of this young man, we affirm our faith in the Lord, this young man, the quote is came to the king who said to him, do you see that Allah has actually done what you try to avoid, that people have believed in the Lord. The King commanded ditches to be dug at important points in the past, when these ditches were dug and the fire was lacking to them, it was sent to the people he will not turn back from his religion will be thrown in the fire, or it will be said to him jump into the fire, that people quote

00:59:14--> 00:59:31

the death but did not renounce their religion till a woman a woman came with her child and she felt hesitant jumping into the fire and the child said to her or mother in jewel, this whole deal for it is the truth. This is the hydrogen Sahih Muslim hydrant is authentic without a shadow without hiding inside a Muslim.

00:59:32--> 00:59:59

But what is not clear is that is this what is referred to with the ayah Does that make sense? The Heidi is clear that at the end of the Heidi, the king dug a ditch and he commanded all of those people who believed in the boy to be thrown into, into the ditch who believed in Allah and who believed in what the boy the message that the boy was bringing to be thrown into the into the ditch.

01:00:00--> 01:00:23

Some of the scholars have tipsy they need this headings to the IRA. So they said us how we have told is the king and the people who, who dug the ditch. But what's not clear is it's not. It's not clear that this is the Tafseer of the iron ore is the ayah general for everyone that this happened to because it happened more than once in history and allows each of us

01:00:25--> 01:00:26

Do we have any questions?

01:00:28--> 01:00:30

Okay, does that make sense?

01:00:31--> 01:00:32

Okay,

01:00:33--> 01:00:35

that's what was mentioned. Allah knows best.
