This one that are from Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam, ala Ashraf, an MBA almost saline, the being able for Latina Muhammad Ali he after a surah was Katha Sneem Allahumma Linda million found no and fountain Abby, Mount alum Tina was in that in many Arab Alameen

00:00:16 --> 00:00:21

were doing in tafsir of sorts of an im, we've reached around the 100 and 11th.

00:00:22 --> 00:00:30

And one of the main points of solitude and I am that I lost power to Allah wants us to understand is that the rejection of Revelation,

00:00:31 --> 00:01:16

the rejection of Allah's guidance, the rejection of his signs, whether it takes the form of Cofer or the more specific form of cool photo which has shaped is not a cognitive issue, not a primarily cognitive issue. It's not about how smart you are. It is an issue of the heart. It is about how sincere you are it is about how moral and ethical you are. Which is why Allah azza wa jal, he says, While en una zona la mala Mala Equateur what can Lemma humulene Moto y Hashana la him color che in Coppola? McCann Julio me know in LA Aisha Allah will lock in Xsara home he has a hallelujah.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:48

Allah Subhana Allah says, Look, even if we sent down to them an angel recall this was one of their phony demands one of their excuses, oh, we don't want a prophet. We want you to send us an angel. Allah says even if we sent them an angel, or even if we allow the dead to speak to them, or if we gathered everything for them, they wouldn't believe except if Allah subhanaw taala willed now rather, most of them are ignorant.

00:01:49 --> 00:01:54

Okay Delica Anna Nikolina been I do want to say Athena Lindsey Belgian.

00:01:55 --> 00:02:14

In this way, okay. I lost pounds I was about to account for the existence of something. He says we have placed for every prophet enemies enemies among the shayateen NCLD and mean human devils and devils from among the jinn.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:53

They help each other and they speak to each other, and they dilute each other. So for fellow Cali hoorah with beautified literally golden words, golden deluded words. Well, Oh, shut up boo karma falou. And if Allah subhanaw taala had wanted, he wouldn't have allowed it to happen yet. And Hakeem, the all wise Allah azza wa jal decided that this would happen that this type of confusion would happen this type of argumentation, you've got some people doing the devil's work, right? Here's the shaytaan

00:02:54 --> 00:03:06

people, or Westworld is the suggestions that you find within your own soul. And the reason that he has allowed it to happen is to demonstrate what's on your insides.

00:03:07 --> 00:03:56

Because if you have on your inside sincerity, if you have on your inside faith, the virtue, then yes, you will make mistakes, but more times than not, you're going to follow the guidance that Allah subhanaw taala sends, and you're going to resist the whispers. You're going to resist the bad influences. You're going to resist the delusions, or the justifications or the rationalizations that the demons give you. But for people who have the sickness in their heart already, this is what they've been waiting for. They want to hear the West West, they want to hear the suggestions, they want to hear the delusions, they want to be provided the rationalization, so then once it comes

00:03:56 --> 00:04:12

along, they can latch on to it and say, Ah, yes. See, I knew what I was doing was okay. I knew that I could live my life without faith, I knew that I could live my life without thinking about being accountable to anyone, or to anything.

00:04:13 --> 00:04:32

This is how misguidance works. And if Allah subhanaw taala had willed it, he wouldn't have let it happen yet. He allowed it to happen to demonstrate what he already knew. Because when it comes to your heart and my heart and everybody's heart and what they would decide how they would react, Allah already knows.

00:04:33 --> 00:04:57

He didn't have to do it for his own benefit so that he knew something he wasn't already aware of. But he makes the hidden manifest to prove it to everybody else. So that we get on the day of judgment and we stand before Allah's power to Allah and He gives us our final judgment. He shows us our deeds. Yeah, Ted off. He makes us confess You did this. We have to say yes.

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

We don't have an argument

00:05:00 --> 00:05:04

We can't say well, but if you had only given me this different situation,

00:05:06 --> 00:05:12

Allah subhanaw taala gave us the situation gave us every opportunity and we're going to get what we deserve.

00:05:13 --> 00:05:55

While he testscore la he Effetre to leadin Allah you may know and I will ask you that this is exactly what we're talking about. Allah says Lee Okay, the lamb that he's using here as lamb Metalia Okay, lamb Italian Allah's pantallas explaining the reason why he let this happen. Why did he let the demons run amok, right, be able to confuse people be able to provide these arguments, bad influences among the people bad influences with these suggestions and these whisperings? Why Lolly Tesco Ah, he lay he Effetre to leadin Hola, yo, me notable Accra so that the people who don't believe in the afterlife their hearts would incline towards it.

00:05:56 --> 00:05:57

And Allah azza wa jal

00:05:58 --> 00:06:25

puts this front and center time and time again. Alladhina Allah You mean on a bit extra? It's interesting, you were to think somebody an outside observer would think, Okay, well, the Quran would usually say believing in Allah, believing in Allah believing in Allah and it's true. Allah says that a lot in the Quran, but a surprising amount of times. Instead of saying you can only be Allah, He says you me Nona will ask?

00:06:27 --> 00:06:31

Allah de la manana will Accra here the people who don't believe in the afterlife.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:38

What's the first CIFA the first description of the emoticon and sort of tell Bacara

00:06:39 --> 00:06:42

Alladhina Umina. They live.

00:06:44 --> 00:07:17

Interesting. The first thing he says is not you'll be known a bit later. He says you're gonna be the one who believes in the unseen Because believing in the unseen and the afterlife as part of the unseen has to do with high sab has to do with accountability. You know that you're going to be held to account you know, you're going to be held responsible for what you did. All piety all Taqwa all responsibility, all faith is based off of accountability. We need it.

00:07:18 --> 00:07:22

If you don't have accountability, you're going to do whatever you want.

00:07:23 --> 00:07:24

And that's just the reality.

00:07:26 --> 00:07:28

How many think about your job?

00:07:29 --> 00:07:35

For those of you who have a boss, if your boss never ever, ever came in to work?

00:07:37 --> 00:08:00

How tempting would it be to slack off? How hard would it be to discipline yourself? So that every cent I mean, all of us have shortcomings imagine, are you going to tell me that every single second that you're on the clock is dedicated to your work? You never once looked at your phone you never once shot a message you never once scrolled Facebook or something like this when you're on the clock.

00:08:01 --> 00:08:43

lost power to audit is the only boss that has complete knowledge of what his workers are doing. Right? And so we need that accountability, we need to have some sort of accountability so that we act right. And Allah has found that Allah says here, that the people who don't believe in accountability, and if you can't, if you don't believe in the afterlife, you can't believe in any accountability, no real accountability. Your heart is going to lean. It's going to lean towards these suggestions towards these demons towards these demonic forces and these influences. You only live once it's your body, it's your choice. Get out there and live a little relaxed, loosen up You

00:08:43 --> 00:08:45

Only Live Once Let's go.

00:08:46 --> 00:08:54

If you don't believe in accountability, your hearts gonna lean towards that and eventually, you're gonna find the justification you were looking for

00:08:57 --> 00:09:00

while he or although who and so that they will be pleased with it.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:10

Walia Qatari fu Nahum, mocha telephone and so that they would be able to commit that which they were already resolved upon committing Subhana Allah.

00:09:12 --> 00:09:45

Allah phrases it he uses a verb that he uses a noun, okay? So the verb in Arabic, it symbolizes studied. It's something that maybe I'm doing it right now, but I can stop whenever I want. Maybe two minutes later I'm done. But the noun is something that this person is resolved to do it. Okay, and so Allah says, he says Walia Qatari fool my home mocha telephone, so that they can do verb or commit that which mocha telephone they are doers of

00:09:46 --> 00:09:58

meaning what they are already resolved to do. fly to LA he ever tele should other than Allah I want Hackerman should I want anyone other than a lot as a judge?

00:10:01 --> 00:10:54

Well hello hola De Anza La La Kamala Kitab mo Salah and he is the one who sent down the book in for Seoul, piece by piece slowly. This is part of Allah's wisdom and one of the benefits of being a Muslim, not belonging to the earlier communities of faith. When Ben Israel eel received the Torah, when Mossad he said m went on to the scene in it was all given to him. Devour Ada, that once tablets, colorless, there is no doubt there's no there really there's no doubt Raj, right? There's no doubt Raj hulless right. You either have Yanni fashion one edge, is it you succeed or fail you have everything right in front of you right there. Imagine the entire city coming down and once very

00:10:54 --> 00:11:24

difficult. Allah subhanaw taala was merciful with us he gave us the double edge. He gave us bit by bit by bit, 23 years Subhana 23 years to get used to it. No alcohol, no illicit relationships, giving up river. Right? Changing our the way that we think about things 23 years very, very generous and this is attested to by Aisha Radi Allahu Allah, who said that if we had been asked

00:11:25 --> 00:11:34

from the beginning to give up, Kumar was Xena. We would not have accepted it. That's the words of Aisha your mother. Are the Allahu

00:11:35 --> 00:11:57

Allah Subhana Allah is the One who gave the Kitab Mufasa Allah, He gave it piece by piece. Do you want anyone other than this Creator as your judge? Subhana look at how merciful he was he didn't have to give it to you piece by piece. He didn't have to take it easy with you. Do you would you want anyone other than Him as a judge?

00:11:58 --> 00:12:23

No, of course he's the Most Merciful One Latina Tina Hummel keytab the Ala Moana and homeowners Xena Moravec will have the ones who came before you the ones who were given revelation before you they already know. They already know that this core n this revelation was sent from your Sustainer in truth, that article Nana Minella monitoring, so don't be of those who doubt.

00:12:24 --> 00:12:53

Then Allah subhanaw taala gives us an AKA ADA. He gives us a principle to apply throughout our entire lives. He says what Tim met Kelly Mehta Rebecca Siddhartha Adela Allah's word has already come to pass. Okay, lamb, Oba Denali, Kelly Mati Wahoo Asami. Will Alim we're in total Xsara men fill out of the Yoda. Look, if you were to follow the majority of people on Earth, you would go astray.

00:12:54 --> 00:13:01

majority rule, democracy? No, no, no, no, no. Allah says if you were to follow the majority you would go astray.

00:13:05 --> 00:13:46

He says your De Luca and severely law particularly they would divert you from the Path of Allah subhanaw taala. Ie to be owner, a loved one. The majority of people aren't doing anything but following assumptions and conjecture. Just scroll through social media and you'll figure that out real quick. Look through your Facebook feed. Look through your Tik Tok or your Instagram, the majority of stuff that's out there. It's about manifesting this and it's about zodiac sign that and crystals and Madri ash all this nonsense. If you were to take we used to have a joke when we were in the Jameel or Medina. You know, people come on hajj for the first time.

00:13:47 --> 00:14:09

The last thing you want to do, we used to joke we said oh, don't worry about hajus easy, just look around you and do what everybody else is doing. The worst way to learn how to make hedge because you'll see everything. You don't see people, you know, not even dressed appropriately use people, people cutting their hair right there on Southern mirror, you see people doing things out of order, you see all sorts of craziness.

00:14:10 --> 00:14:51

The worst thing that you can do is just not have a plan. As somebody said, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail, you need to have a plan going into it. You need to know what you're going to do so that when you see the majority of people doing something else, you're not going to be shook. You're not going to be influenced. We know as Muslims and this is especially important for the youth. I tell them in Sunday school and drugs, alcohol no completely ruins your ability to see Allah science. So then when they get out into the school, or they get out into the real world with their friends, their co workers, you don't drink. If you're not ready for that moment. You're going to feel guilty,

00:14:51 --> 00:15:00

you're going to feel embarrassed, you're going to be like oh, well, you know, I guess it's not so bad. But if you've been prepared if you have a plan, and you say no I don't drink it

00:15:00 --> 00:15:05

Out of here, get that stuff away from me, are you not waste your money waste your mind.

00:15:07 --> 00:15:20

That's the difference. You have to have a plan so that you're not deluded by what other people are doing. The majority of people do this while everybody else is doing this, everybody else is doing that. Allah subhana, Allah tells us don't look to what the majority of people are doing.

00:15:21 --> 00:15:54

Especially when it comes to your faith. You follow the majority of people, you're going to be led astray. This does not apply to within our OMA or within the scholars. Okay, because we have the gym hold right now the majority opinion we talk about and filk this applies to an NES, all the people, if you look at what all the people are doing, they fall into kofler Over here, they fall into shirk over here, they fall into better over here. This is what they're doing, because most people follow what's convenient, and what they like their, their desires, their attachments in this world.

00:15:56 --> 00:16:36

Want to just jump back just a little bit because there's an idea. There's a couple of eight and sold an item that some people misinterpret with an agenda. And we've talked about some of those before. One of them is the verse that we just passed with him. Let's get him into Rebecca silicon wa de la la MOBA, Delilah Kelly Matty. Some people use this phrase l'amour, bettinelli Kelly, Matty. There is no changing Allah's words or is literally there is no changer of Allah's words. Nobody can change the laws words. So some people come along, and they say, well, there's no such thing as Ness as abrogation. And this is a false interpretation of this idea. Allah's power to Allah has the ability

00:16:36 --> 00:17:20

to replace one idea with another. He says that and sort of Bacara min min and 1718, right. There's an entire idea about it a lot as a gel has the ability to replace one rule with another. And we've talked before, and it bears mentioning again, why is abrogation or NESC not a contradiction because the entire revelation can be broken up into two groups. You have Shetty over here and you'll have Aki the over here. After you there has to do with reality. There is one God, there are prophets. There is Revelation, there is life after death. There are angels, these sorts of things. If Allah Spano Tata were to tell you two different things or contradictory things in Arpita that's a

00:17:20 --> 00:18:03

contradiction. Allah Spano Tata never told one community worship a Trinity and then told the community later actually it's just one Allah subhanaw taala never told people there are no angels. And then told another group of people actually know there's angels that will be a contradiction. Shetty on the other hand is not to do with reality it has to do with most law. It has to do with what benefits human beings and what benefits human beings even though there's lots of continuity from time to time and place to place there are some things that might differ big example Adam and Howard. Okay they have children

00:18:04 --> 00:18:06

how are their children going to reproduce

00:18:10 --> 00:18:10

Ah

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

yeah. By marrying each other. Let's get that IQ is that hello for us

00:18:20 --> 00:19:03

Kerala okay. They were in a situation they had their own Sharia Allah says this and sort of a double they call them income Jana share it and women had to each one of you meaning Aqua meaning home, every nation he gave us, Shira he gave a specific law, women Hajer and away so you will find there are differences from nation to nation when it comes to their Sharia law Sharia have been Israel in the Jews is different from our Sharia. We don't say that all of their Shetty all these differences is just a hadith. No, some of the stuff is different. When the Christians, the Sharia that was given to ERISA Alehissalaam is different from our Sherea Sherea that was given to Adam and to his children

00:19:03 --> 00:19:49

or new on a Sadam. There's different from our Sharia. But this is not a contradiction, that there are differences in between them. Because the rules do not have to do with what is reality. The rules have to do with what Allah wants from us how we should deal with that reality. And that might differ slightly from time to time and place to place, which is why Allah subhanaw taala started us off, allowing us to drink alcohol in the first maybe 13 years of the Tenzin and then eventually banned it. Okay, this was abrogation he replaced the rule of not assuming the rule of allowance with the rule of prohibition. And that is not a contradiction whatsoever. So you cannot use this idea that

00:19:49 --> 00:19:59

MOBA dilla Kalavati. To say that Allah doesn't have replaced one rule with another or something like this. That is not what Allah azza wa jal meant by that. Well, who was me when I

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

leam what an Altair XR a million fill out of the old the Luke answerability law. If you follow the majority of people on earth, they will divert you from the Path of Allah e to the owner 11. They only are following their conjecture, their assumptions. They don't have firm principles. And if you corner anybody who doesn't have a firm theological basis for what they believe it's all a schwa it's all folder. It's all chaos. They don't have a consistent regime of principles.

00:20:32 --> 00:20:33

You talk to a vegan.

00:20:34 --> 00:20:40

Okay, you guys know what a vegan is? Right? Somebody who doesn't eat any animals, or any animal products?

00:20:41 --> 00:20:42

Okay, well, you say well

00:20:46 --> 00:21:10

why don't you Why don't you eat this? Well, you know, because it's cruelty to animals to kill. Okay, go to your cereal box. You know how many Pasha dots died? To get you that serial bat box. You know how many squirrels and rabbits and other sorts of animals get caught up in the turbines when they're collecting cereal? Okay, there's still animals that die when they when you produce your cereal.

00:21:12 --> 00:21:15

Or you talk to people now they say that relationships it's all just about consent.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:23

Mashallah, so if a brother and a sister consent to marry then that's okay.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:37

Right? If somebody who's getting abused by their spouse consents to it, that's okay. By your logic. Right? Allah subhanaw taala said about colleague and your minimum and which is a beautiful double meaning

00:21:38 --> 00:21:44

they believe only a little. And it also means how few are the things that they believe in?

00:21:45 --> 00:22:13

It ask any people on the street? What do you actually believe in? Very, very few thick, they can't, they'll be only be able to give you a few things. You talk to a Muslim who knows even just a little bit about their faith. I believe in Allah. I believe in the messenger Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I believe in the messengers before him. I believe in the books, I believe in the Koran and the NGOs and the Torah, and as our board, and so have Brahim right. I believe in that afterlife and the Bozak. And he said, and I believe in this and I believe in that.

00:22:14 --> 00:22:28

That's belief that's actually submission Islam. That's having something outside of yourself that you is that is something that is holding you down and giving you gravity. Anybody else that doesn't have this then it's just one.

00:22:30 --> 00:22:38

Like a lost power to otter compares to their deeds. It's just like, straw, you blow it away like a thief. It's nothing.

00:22:39 --> 00:23:20

kalila you know, they believe in very, very few things. So if you follow the majority of people, you're gonna go astray. They're only following conjecture. Assumption. We're in home. Illa Yeah. prasun Allah then says in the Rebecca, who are Nemo, may your Lilu answer Bailey he will who know mobile Mata Deen. So right after Allah subhanaw taala says, don't follow the majority. Allah subhanaw taala. Often in the Koran responds to what the reader might be thinking. The reader might be thinking, Well, what's wrong with what the majority is doing? Allah says he knows best who's guided. Meaning you can't look to the majority of people and assume that you can tell who is doing

00:23:20 --> 00:24:04

right and who is doing wrong, or even that you assume we see this today all the time. You see, tick tock. You see Instagram. You've got this Muslim couple on that day in that day. And then a year passes two years pass. You find out they had skeletons in their closet. They were doing horrible stuff. Behind the scenes. They were fake. They were just getting money just getting rich. You don't know who's got it. You don't really know. You look, you see the big beard. You see the big belly. You think this is the molar or the Mufti? Right You don't know. Allah Subhana Allah knows this is element of IE. This is something that is from the unseen. Okay? That's why Allah subhanaw taala and

00:24:04 --> 00:24:30

solid hydroids when he says in the economical and the law he at Koco. The best of you in the sight of Allah are the most pious and then a lot of finishes the idea in the lava, Lehmann hobby, and Allah is the only one who knows. And he uses Ali Mon, which encompasses things that are Jefra and not things that are out in the open knowledge that anybody can know and things that are Hosea things that are hidden, and then he says Corbiere.

00:24:35 --> 00:24:36

Gonna need a battery change.

00:24:41 --> 00:24:52

And then he says kobir informed hover is information. It's not something that you can figure out by yourself. It's not something that you can know by yourself. It's something that's hidden,

00:24:53 --> 00:24:59

which is why Allah spawn you can learn a lot in the Quran, from paying attention to the names that Allah you

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

uses at the end of the day I bet he makes a point. He mentioned his names and the names have a meaning and emphasis to the point that he's trying to tell you

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

all right, we're back.

00:25:28 --> 00:26:13

So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is more knowledgeable than you are, who was on the right path? Well who and Immobilien mohideen. And he is more knowledgeable of who was astray, then a loss as he says, okay, and fat means talk to you. Okay? It means that the thing that's about to come is built upon what was just mentioned, but he changes topic, which is always really interesting. Pay attention, you want to have a deeper relationship with the Koran. Pay attention to when Allah is found to Allah changes topic. There is a relationship there that he wants you to think about. What's the connection? And he says, For Kulu me ma Luca Eros Mala he Ali In Kuntum. Ba Yatta. He mean, he says then eat

00:26:14 --> 00:26:30

of the meats. He's saying, what Allah's name has been mentioned over if you believe in his science, if you are believers in his signs, what on earth is Allah talking about? Why would he suddenly start talking about meat?

00:26:33 --> 00:26:34

Any ideas?

00:26:51 --> 00:27:26

Allah Subhana Allah is giving an intro to a section where he's about to criticize the eating habits of the Quran. Okay, because the Quraysh we have the opposite problem. In 2023. In America, we want everything to be halal, right? Chick fil A and whatever. And all this other stuff. We want to eat everything. You know, just say Bismillah. Right? That's what everybody says right? You go to the store SubhanAllah. Even if it's a even if it's a Muslim shop, or a Muslim owns it. You say it is this mean? Hello? Say hello

00:27:28 --> 00:28:10

SubhanAllah. That's true. You find that here. So the Quran had the opposite problem. Okay, it wasn't about permissibility they weren't saying that everything was permissible. They were they had lots of taboos say no, that's haram for you. This is haram for you. This is only for men. This is only for women. This is only we're only allowed to if we mark the animal with this sort of thing. You can't eat it. It's sacred. They had all these restrictions and superstitions. Allah is gonna mention in a page or two. Okay, so he's introducing this topic by saying circolo a saying eat I'm telling you to eat me mad. Okay, awesome. Allahu Allah. If Allah's name has mentioned over then eat it. Don't worry

00:28:10 --> 00:28:52

about these past superstitions. Don't think that these people are more pious because they've made up rules and taboos. Right? Sometimes we look at people, I used to think this when I before I was a Muslim, I was still kind of like coming back to faith, but I wasn't sure if it was going to be Christianity or whatever. And I used to look at the Catholics. You guys know the difference between the Catholics and the Protestants, the Catholics have all the saints every single day is specified for a st. This day, Tuesday, December 22 is for St. Kilda. And this the April 21, is St Kilda they have every single day on the calendar, they have a saint. And every single saint has some sort of

00:28:52 --> 00:29:07

quality. Oh, this is the Saint of finding lost things. I have an inlaw that once told me, Oh, well, you know, as Catholics if we lose something we pray to St. Anthony, he's the Saint of Lost Things. I said, Wow, that's great. Who does st Anthony pray to?

00:29:08 --> 00:29:11

When he lost something right? He prayed to Allah

00:29:12 --> 00:29:24

and so somebody who doesn't have a lot of faith to go off of they might look at this and say wow, look at this. This is amazing. Oh, this religion they have so many you know rituals they have so much they believe in

00:29:26 --> 00:29:59

Allah subhanaw taala knows who's best. Allah Subhana Allah knows who's guided and who's not. So somebody could come into this situation and look at the Quran fish, and they have all these taboos are ya know, you can't eat that. You can't eat that I had once I had someone tell me once that I couldn't cut my fingernails on the street and Medina. I was like, why should they leave? Like what's the what's your evidence? He's like, no, no, the gin eat it and then all this other stuff. I said, I see. Where did you hear this? The Oh, you know, I heard it from my grandma's. We don't just go based off of that.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:37

On, we don't just go based off of conjecture. This was a student in their stomach, University of Medina. Yeah, we have to have the legal you can't just talk out your neck about about this and that you have to have evidence, of course didn't have evidence they were making stuff up. You can't eat this. You can't eat that this is special for this month. This is special for that. Somebody who doesn't know any better. They think, wow, these people must be really pious. These people must be really religious and close to Allah. Allah says, Nope, don't follow the majority you follow the majority you're gonna go astray and eat. He says eat from whatever Allah's name is mentioned over if

00:30:37 --> 00:31:03

you believe in his science. Don't be fooled by this false piety. Allah subhanaw taala. He is the one who is giving the shitty people don't get to make it up. He's the one who gets to decide what's really pleasing to Him and what's not. Right. If I said, Okay, I want to make a little happy today I'm gonna go on stand out in the sun for five hours. Where did I get that Delete? Where did I that's very bad. Who said

00:31:04 --> 00:31:10

the definition of a bad is something that Allah is pleased with who gets to decide what's Allah, what Allah is pleased with?

00:31:11 --> 00:31:26

Oh, I guess that aside, I don't get to decide. I can't just make it up as I go along. And that's what the courts were doing. They were making up as they went along. And the irony is, and we'll see it later on the Quraysh. Were making up these things to compensate for the things that they weren't doing.

00:31:27 --> 00:31:42

They were in alcohol. They were in gambling, they were burying their daughters, they were doing all this bad stuff and they felt guilty and so they overcompensated on this other side that was easy for them. Camels and food and things like that.

00:31:44 --> 00:31:51

Anyway, well Mariela calm Allah tech Kulu so a lot of them is going to challenge the believers he says okay, what's wrong with you that you won't eat?

00:31:52 --> 00:32:13

Allah Coloman look at us my Allahu Allah He what God fasade Allah calm Maha Rama Alikum Okay, Allah saying what's wrong with you? He first he's like saying, Okay, eat go ahead and be free eat of what Allah's name has been mentioned over and what's wrong with you that you don't you think that you're more pious than Allah? You think that you have rules that Allah doesn't have?

00:32:15 --> 00:32:26

So some people they think that well, the cautious, the most cautious opinion is always the best. It's not always true. The most cautious opinion are you making Are you putting limits that Allah didn't put?

00:32:28 --> 00:32:35

are you introducing things into the religion restrictions that Allah didn't put? This doesn't make you more pious? This doesn't make you more

00:32:36 --> 00:33:23

God conscious. Allah challenges us. What is wrong with you that you don't eat what Allah's name has been mentioned over obviously at the moment of slaughter will call the fossil record Mahara multicam and Allah has already spelled out for you everything that's haram there's nothing left there's nothing he let you in the dark about there's nothing that he didn't already tell you about it Allah meant to live from LA except of course if you're in dire necessity. Well in Kathy Iran, they are going to Luna be him. Know the majority of them are following their desires, their attachments with no knowledge, no license, no authority that Allah gave in the Rebecca who Allah mobile, Murata Deen

00:33:23 --> 00:33:26

Allah subhanaw taala is more knowledgeable of those who have gone astray.

00:33:29 --> 00:33:30

How are we doing on time?

00:33:35 --> 00:33:50

So Allah spawn to Allah then gives us advice, whether with all hero ethnonym, about Athena, leave sin Ethem both the obvious sin and the hidden sin. The context here, okay, everybody knows that the obvious sin, okay.

00:33:51 --> 00:34:11

killing somebody, drinking, stealing, gambling, all these sorts of things. Well, Valentina, what are the hidden sins there? First of all sins that are hidden away that people don't see, but they're also the introduction of these phony regulations that Allah subhanaw taala didn't reveal. Is this hidden sin? Yes, it is. You're speaking for Allah.

00:34:12 --> 00:34:17

Something that he didn't say. And Allah is gonna have some very strong words for that type of person and just a bit

00:34:18 --> 00:34:21

in the Latina exe bonell efma

00:34:22 --> 00:34:47

So huge rizona be my candle Jakob sorry for those who have earned a Santa then they're going to get what they deserve. What to attack. Hello, may Millennials care, youth Karis Mala era and don't eat this is more relevant to us for filk don't eat anything, meaning meat that has not had a law's name pronounced over it.

00:34:49 --> 00:34:55

Okay, let that sit for a second. Don't eat any meat that allows name has not been pronounced over it.

00:34:58 --> 00:34:59

Okay, just say Bismillah

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

rather

00:35:02 --> 00:35:19

shuttlecock, I see a big difference between the attitude on the street and then what Allah subhanaw taala says right here in the Quran clear as day well in o le Fisk and certainly that to eat meat that hasn't had Allah's name pronounced over at the time of slaughter is Fisk

00:35:20 --> 00:35:26

is disobedience. FESPACO means Scrooge. It means leaving Allah's obedience

00:35:28 --> 00:35:56

well in a nutshell Tina law you hold on to Isla Olli II him, Leo jadie LUCAM Allah. Allah says that the devils and the demons they inspire their accomplices and their friends so that they argue with you. Don't we have arguments about food? Brother Don't be too hard of a brother. Don't be too strict to save this man. It is going to be okay.

00:35:57 --> 00:36:09

Allah says that the devil's inspire one another to argue with you about this issue is not disobedience. It's not a big deal. Come on, brother. We're in America. It's hard. You know, I can't find

00:36:13 --> 00:36:17

one while in a dark tomo home in a coma that most raccoon

00:36:19 --> 00:36:32

will hear either Allah, Allah Subhana Allah said, If you obey, if you were to obey, it's a hypothetical. If you were to obey these devils, then you would certainly be guilty of shirk.

00:36:33 --> 00:36:52

Because Allah subhanaw taala is the one who gets to decide. We can't introduce our own rules. We can't speak for Allah subhanaw taala if Allah Spano Tata has said something in the Koran, and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam has said something in the Hadith, and then we come along after that and say, you know, it's not that big of a deal.

00:36:54 --> 00:37:09

in direct contradiction, we're not talking about valid enough or things like that, in direct contradiction to what alone the prophecies that I said, Well, Keith, that's a very, very scary thing. It would be better if we said, Yes, that's what Allah said, but I'm weak.

00:37:10 --> 00:37:40

At least then we admit that we're sinning. But we're not trying to change the laws, Deen. Two different things. We can sin, everybody can sin, everybody can do wrong, and say yeah, you know, I'm not the best Muslim. I'm trying to get better. You know, that's one thing. But then to try to change the laws Dena, something else to say no, no, no, there's nothing in the Quran that says that. Okay, have you read the whole Quran? You know that there's nothing in the Quran that says that? How easy some people say that, you know how many people say that the hijab is in the Quran? These days?

00:37:41 --> 00:37:43

There is not about the hijab, they say,

00:37:45 --> 00:37:49

Do you know what sort of punishment is in store for a person who lies about Allah subhanaw taala.

00:37:51 --> 00:37:53

The Hijab is not mentioned in the Koran.

00:37:55 --> 00:38:00

You've condemned yourself, that's it set off, you just confessed against yourself. You don't need to open your mouth anymore.

00:38:01 --> 00:38:17

You ignore ignorance is on display. And if you don't repent that you've got something really, really scary coming to you fear Allah, at least at least be humble and say I'm not aware of anything to say Allah never said something, or it's not on the Koran.

00:38:19 --> 00:38:38

At least have the humility to say as far as I understand, or I didn't see it or to my knowledge or anything like this, but no, because the people who follow them a lot, that people who follow their agendas and their desires, they don't have that humility in the first place. If they had that humility in the first place, they wouldn't be trying to change allows Dean or speak for Allah Subhana Allah.

00:38:41 --> 00:38:43

So Allah subhana wa says,

00:38:45 --> 00:39:09

a woman can a meeting for RCA now who are another who are Nora the MCV if in Nasik mm Metha Lu filmu. Mati laser, Bihar A minha. He gives us an example he gives us a parable is the person who used to be dead and Allah brings him back to life and gives to them light and he walks by that light among the people.

00:39:11 --> 00:39:15

Is he like somebody who's wandering around in the darkness and he can't get out.

00:39:17 --> 00:39:26

The person who will last mile to Allah has given guidance to is not equal to the person that Allah subhanaw taala has not given guidance to. They are not the same

00:39:27 --> 00:39:33

Karateka as though you know, they will care for you Rena McCann, who Yama Loon And in that way, we Beautify.

00:39:35 --> 00:39:37

For the people of Cofer, that which they do.

00:39:39 --> 00:39:49

These are the ways I'll just set it on the last page, how the demons and the devils both of people and of jinn. They beautify sin for people.

00:39:50 --> 00:39:58

I say Allah, Islam as easy. Take it easy, brother. Don't be too extreme. You're praying five times a day. Don't be too extreme brother.

00:39:59 --> 00:39:59

You want to

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

Cover your hair sister Don't be so extreme.

00:40:03 --> 00:40:05

You want to make sure that your meat

00:40:06 --> 00:40:10

had Allah's name pronounced over it. Don't be so extreme brother.

00:40:12 --> 00:40:22

This the way that the devil is bring you down. This is the way that sin is made beautiful to us by being repackaged as tolerance and enlightenment and ease and all these sorts of things.

00:40:23 --> 00:40:41

Okay that it could John Neff equally Acharya Tina, caribou brahmagiri Mia, and in this way lost pounds otter has decided that every cardio every village, every town, every city is going to have its fair share of criminals. its fair share of misguidance people who are trying to misguide the people,

00:40:44 --> 00:40:53

Liam Caudill via to plot their end, to make schemes to make plans. How are we going to get the Muslims to break up

00:40:54 --> 00:40:59

and split up and be disunited? How are we going to make the Muslim youth

00:41:01 --> 00:41:16

relinquish part of their Deen? How are we going to get them to think that Islam is just an identity just like every other identity? Or think that it's my body? It's my choice or to think that it's yours to decide what gender you are, what sexuality you are.

00:41:18 --> 00:41:31

How are we going to do it? Let's put them on a flyer. Let's give them anybody who commits that. Let's give them a speaking tour. Let's give them a book deal. Let's put their name up in lights. Yes, this happens.

00:41:34 --> 00:41:48

What Maryam Korona Illa be unfussy him when I showed him Allah. Allah says they plot and they plan but in reality they are only planning their own demise and they don't even feel it. You can't beat Allah.

00:41:50 --> 00:41:51

undisputed champion.

00:41:52 --> 00:41:53

Undefeated,

00:41:54 --> 00:42:02

never going to lose. And yet people in their arrogance think that they can plan and outsmart Allah subhanaw taala. We will see, we will see

00:42:06 --> 00:42:10

that Allah Sparta Allah says what either at home a tune, God who

00:42:12 --> 00:42:16

learn no matter what note, Miss Lama who to Rasulullah

00:42:18 --> 00:42:31

if they are given an ayah if they're given a sign or a miracle or it comes to them, they say this is one of their excuses. We will not believe in it until we are given similar to that which the prophets of Allah have been given.

00:42:34 --> 00:42:39

A lost power to Allah response. Allahu Allah mo hallelujah Gerardo Risa data.

00:42:40 --> 00:43:04

Allah knows best who to give his message to this is one of the many instances that people have arrogance expose themselves, because they demonstrate that they think that they should be calling the shots. They think that they know best. This was a common thing that the court asks us to do. If this were true, why weren't we the first ones to believe in it?

00:43:05 --> 00:43:16

If this were true, why wasn't it sound sent down to Abu Sufian or Abu Lahab or any of these guys that we think should have been sent down? You're missing the whole point. Islam literally means submission.

00:43:17 --> 00:43:34

The whole point is that it's going to defy some of your expectations. religion faith is not about telling you everything you want to hear. It's not about affirming everything you already believe your assessments you thought so and so as the best person allows you to tell you actually is this guy over here.

00:43:36 --> 00:43:46

And you have now a moral choice to make. Are you going to humble yourself and say, oh, okay, now I understand. Or are you going to say this can't be true because it's not what I already thought.

00:43:48 --> 00:44:07

Islam is here to challenge us. And Allah azza wa jal is here to correct us. Allah knows best, who to give his message to. So you see, well Latina mo salvado and Allah He, what are the Wondershare de DON'T BE MY Kanu em Kuru. The people who conspired

00:44:09 --> 00:44:11

The criminals are in for

00:44:12 --> 00:44:27

a very severe punishment by that which they used to plot and plan on May Allah protect us and guide us and give us faith me. So panicle who have like a shadow Allah Allah Antistick filco to be like, Salam Alikum October
