If thought it's got you know, three more minutes left for the exact so I'm good
all right, this is I feel like I was shaped let's jump in Bismillah de nombre de never Milan 360 takeaway.
hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam Allahu alayhi wa sallam more than always, forever we begin with the praise of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah we send our prayers of peace upon our enemy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we testify with firmness and conviction that none is worthy of worship but Allah azza wa jal men, that I want to be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is is worshipping slave and final messenger. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grants you and I hired him Baraka in this dunya and after that Allah subhanaw taala gives us the best of what is in store for us in this dunya even if it seems bitter at the moment, that Allah gives us what is best and better
for us in Africa. And that ALLAH SubhanA which Allah protects us from the punishment of hellfire, I pray that Allah subhanaw taala assists and most of our fina fall out of the machete if I were my family, we have that Allah subhanaw taala to either grant his support and his victory to those who are downtrodden and abused in the East in the West, that Allah subhanaw taala specifically chooses from amongst them the people of Al Aqsa that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grants them pneus support from him gentle Allah Allah, that Allah subhanho wa Taala allows them to have as normal as Ramadan, as we seek all to have, where we can go, pray our Torah, we in relative security and freedom, that
we are able to have the honor of breaking fast with our families, without being assaulted and insulted that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grants them the reward for each and everything that they encounter in his path, that they are worthy of the words of the prophets of Allah who it was seldom, that they will always remain upon this in this ummah, those who are manifestly established upon truth, layer to room and further their home. That they are not harmed by those who let them down or those who oppose them. And that the prophets I send them describe that these are the people of axon and at Neff masjid, the UCLA the surrounding of Masjid Al Assad, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make
them and the generations to come even more resilient and more wanting to pursue a path of peace and righteousness that is equitable for them and others along them. I mean, may Allah Subhana Allah grant them His mercy and His light and put and tie down upon their heart
out of behind me. Finally, ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to accept our month of Ramadan, to accept in it the little that we do, to accept from us our prayers and our fasting to accept from us our reading of the Quran, to accept from us our Roku and I will sujood and to make us from those who is in trouble for this is the month of Baraka, the month where the gates of the heaven are opened, and now we do is made to ascend to Allah azza wa jal May Allah subhanaw taala fill our Ramadan with DUA and praise of him where we honor him and uplift his name. And then Allah subhanaw taala makes that reason for our personal torah even that which we have not made, but is known to him known depth in
of our heart that has not yet been spoken by our tongue and upon our lips, that Allah subhanaw taala grants us what's good of it and protects us from what is harmful, that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah gives us better than we would give ourselves and that the other of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is tempered with his mercy, as he has promised gentler Allah.
sorrel to get is a marvelous Surah And subhanAllah it's a great blessing from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada that this is Yeoman Juma and how great an honor it is to study something from Salton cat. During the blessed day of Jumaane. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam has chosen particular specialities about the the day of Juma. He has mentioned to us in a variety of Hadith some of them are authentic, some of them hasn't, some of them weak, but all of them together bring a special prioritization for this blessed surah. One of the most important of those statements is that the prophets I seldom said that the one who recite Surah tell cat that their day illuminates until the coming week. So from
Friday to Friday, Your day is filled with the light of guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, which means that the light you see with and I always love this imagery of light, when Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, a woman you know, I placed light in their heart light in their being, that you're out of the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah azza wa jal fi bas sorry Nora Oh Allah put light in my eyes where he sent me Nora and in my hearing light, while he certainly Nora and upon my tongue Let there be light. This light
Ah of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is a light of protection and a light of guidance. But one of the most important aspects of it when you and I see from a physical sense, it's a reflection of light. When Allah Subhana Allah says, I become the sight that they see with the light of Allah Subhana. Allah illuminates in the darkness that before us there's things that other people miss. There's insights that other people are unaware of. There are dark spots of lies and intrigue and mystery that other people cannot solve and result on account of them being deprived of this extra light of Allah subhana wa Tada. This is referred to as the philosophy of a believer the spiritual intuition of a
believer, the prophets I send them describes the words of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada in the idea of kotse that you are given the site that Allah blesses you with. So you see by a power of Allah that allows you to penetrate and to look further into a person statements into a person's actions into a business deal that you're getting involved in into a future relationship and all of a sudden, you get this uneasiness or you get this assurity whichever it is, that Allah leads you towards a path of achieving a success or being protected from a harm that otherwise you would have been absent from. And Allah Subhana Allah Allah describes this for the prophets I send them on the night of his era as
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam leaves, that Allah takes the sight of the people of courage. Would you add them in being the ad him sent them women sunbeam said that, that I put a barrier between them and behind them, meaning they're unable to interact and view and to experience what they would normally have been able to with their physical senses. And Allah subhana wa Tada works in mysterious ways in all of our lives. May Allah subhanaw taala strengthen us with His light. May Allah give us the light of reading sort of gaff each and every Friday, May Allah subhanaw taala extended past
the week after week with greater and greater learning and study of the surah. The second statement of the prophets I sent him about the surah is that there are statements where he links it to adaptogen the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam speaks about the one who recites it every Friday that they have an immunity from following the pattern and the behavior and being summoned in call to obedience. For the one I deceiver, for the one who is destined to come forward into the world, but that would amass speak a little bit further once again, it's about seeing and having illumination, the prophets of Allah Allah salams words are not muck surah Allah the Jalil Akbar,
it's not just for this major, the JAL that we've been told about this man who will be short and stature, curly haired one I will have you know, a dominant power and influence into the world that leads people to worship payment I have identify him as being one whose word and law is absolutes, even when it circumvents and seeks to contravene the law of Allah subhana wa Tada. So ALLAH SubhanA, WA Tada, makes the surah and the lessons in the surah and the teaching of the surah and inoculation, a vaccine against the Dogen. But more importantly, it's not just the major to Jen. It's also the other the Jensen the Prophet says in the authentic hadith, that before the emergence of the truth
that Jen, there will be 30 Other that Judge Sheila miner, the gens miner, people who have a capacity to obscure the truth who seek to have our attention away from Allah who want to invigorate our relationship with them rather than ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And salted cat is the protection. So even just look at this concept of the word cave pet.
The word cat for us as Muslims immediately means a place you go, where your back is against the wall, you know what's behind you, and you know the entrance from where danger can come from. It's a place of security. The cap is almost like a womb of your mother's womb. It's a place where you feel
that Allah Subhana Allah has power and victory can emerge from it is not a place of retreat. It is a place of ascendancy. And every time you see kappa mentioned in the Quran, in the Sunnah of the Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam, it is a place that leads to victory there after that leads to success there after that is a
Place of Victorious
retreat as it was for the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So go back through our Quran and you will notice that where Ibrahim where Musa Ali salaam where our NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam find shelter, where do I find shelter where us how we can find shelter where the prophet receives or and where he immediately went to to be away from the Schilke of the people of Karachi before the revelation of the Quran, where the prophet turns to on his Hegira sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the cave of filled where the prophets are SLM finds a strategic advantage even though there is what is a looming military defeat in the battle of the Prophet is taken to the cave of the
mountain of erode. All of these are images and in the Sunnah, numerous statements were the prophets, I seldom describes men who hid in a cave or went to a cave to escape a rain or a flood or whatever it may be. And there they find enlightenment and guidance. So total cat is the concept of it. The cave is the place you recoil, to save your feet, to save yourself from peril. And therefore it makes sense that when we want to save ourselves from the Dogen, the cave, the proverbial cave is the sort of the lessons of this autumn. Now all of us were well aware that there are an hamdulillah a plethora of courses, some of the most, I believe,
blessed ones are echoes in a cave, which is one of elemental ships premier courses, taught by you know, some of the top scholars in particular, my dear brother up did better yet here. Does that hold long enough? That we're happy level low? And that's sort of where you
were? Yeah, I mean, a minute slot him but where we're not no matter what edge Marion Allahumma Amin, Melo raises rank and the surah. Of course, there's so much beauty in it. We want to focus on the reason of its relevant revelation. When when this all revealed and how does it become a protection for the prophets I seldom and for the Sahaba during their time in Mecca. So there are different stages in revelation to the prophets, I send them some of the early sources or sources that are revealed and you can tell from their tone, their tempo, the shortness of their verses, that these are early Meccan sorrows. And then there is the second stage where you could see that it's not just
about this particular message that succinct and short and quick, but now there's a little bit more depth and clarity. And in the very early part, the sources that were revealed were heralding the new news being given to the Prophets I seldom what Baha when Lady either suggested by the morning light by the stillness of the night now with DACA Rob Booker will not color you Lord has not forsaken you has not turned away from you has no hatred towards you. When after too high you don't like I mean an older the next life is better to come for you then what you experience and whatever elation you have in this life out ramen and lemon or
INSEAD all of these sources may elude adding never Levine all of them, you know, what is it that they ponder about the great news that has arrived and Livy whom fee he Motley Fool that they remain, you know suspicious about debating about? And let's say Allah moon, eventually they will know they'll make a lesser Allah moon, truly they will come to know all of the verses, as you could see are cliffhangers. What am I going to know? What truly are we going to know? Well, you know, because the people of Quraysh were deterring people to hear the Quran. And when the Prophet would recite it, it had a beauty to it, a flow to it, his voice with it, you know, commanded majesty and respect the
Arabs. They valued prose and poetry initially. So the Quran comes and it's like, what is this? It's mind blowing. So they wanted to listen to keep them listening, even though they're being persecuted. The sutras and the chapters in the verses were cliffhangers. And Claudia, the destruction, when what is it melancholia? Don't you know, what is this catastrophe? We're mad Thrall chemin. Korea, even if I was to tell you you wouldn't comprehend its magnificence. Right. So it's like what I want to know give me more. So those verses have a very short, succinct, direct tempo. Then there comes these other chapters that are revealed in Mecca that are about developing Eman and patience. What is the
of judgment, you know, why should we fear it? What is the consequence of not obeying Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and you get these, you know, secondary chapters that are being revealed. The third stage is this surah are the likes of this surah where it is before the hijab to Habesha, it is at the peak of persecution. It is at the time where the Muslims who have accepted the prophets I sell them are being assaulted in their sensibilities are being tarnished. The those who are weak in their tribal links are being physically broken, being murdered so my yellow the Allahu anhu, the first martyr of Islam.
The wife of yours of the mother of a mob, Radi Allahu Allah Sahaba Ultramarine which Island Allah Who at Yaffe genetic film, dosi Allah Allahu Amin, may Allah raises to her rank and in janitorial those are you know the profit would pass by them. And he would say Summerlin las in America come Jenna, be patient endure or family of Yes, sir. The next time we meet is in January, I can't help you. There's nothing I can do. You know, subhanAllah and there was this moment of weakness and annexation and they push the prophets I sell them into the shape of the apple toilet. They were forced them up into a mountain hill where they couldn't come down from it into Mecca, they couldn't
buy yourself or marry or they they were cut off no water, no food, no access for over two years. And it's at this height of persecution that they eventually the people of Quraysh recognize Mohamed, so I sent him and his companions are not going to abandon the faith. Even though we are abusing villain, it's making them stronger. And as they were punishing villain, as earthbath is putting rocks on his chest in the scorching desert, as they are whipping the flesh off his body. The people would look at the land and look at Earth and see the strain of Obama trying to abuse him. And he had the NFL can't breathe. He's, you know, puffing and painting. It's like he's the one being abused and
belittling as a state of serenity. They would say well, Allah He landed three but by the Lord Almighty, we don't know who is punishing. Whom is a beloved with his word I had. He is one he is one or is it the one who's lashing them that is having a more severe time? So the Sahaba Masha, Allah, Annie, they're not going to get let go. The people of courage come to a recognition that and a realization we need to intellectually sabotage their faith. And we're not equipped to answer scripture. We don't know how to answer this message. So let's go and get an extract some statements from people of knowledge, people who have scripture, let's go to the Jews in the rabbi's. Let's go
to the Christians and the priests and the monks and the HA those who are living in in the study of this fate of their faith and ask them a question that we can stumble Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in so they return having been given three questions. Ask Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked this prophet, this claiming to be a prophet, about the soul. So do I'm a soul and the people of Quran had no idea that there is a soul that there's life after death. They just believe that you're you know, you become entered into the earth. And they would hold up bones to the prophets of Allah and he was salam.
The will will be brought forth. What God couldn't miss lahad will be brought back to life when we have become like this, and they would break the bones into dust. How foolish Are you? Yeah, Mohamed, so I sell them that there is a bath and assure Allah Subhana Allah to Allah would reveal that I will bring you back to life and punish you for your insolence.
So they didn't have this concept of a soul. It wasn't part of Arabic culture in that sense. Number two, that the soul is unkillable. Number two, ask him about men, young men who reclined and recluse themselves in a cave. This is a story that was known amongst the Christians. It's a story of sacrifice of those who moved away from their families and from their society to preserve their faith because their families and society were practicing Hellenistic idolatry, they are worshipping false gods and you know, images. And then the third is asking him about the man with the two eras and the two horns or the two generations. Now this is something that you can do on your own time Inshallah,
because we don't have time to speak about this
story of Musa alayhis salam. But if you just Google even while you're listening now, Google, Moses, horns,
missed translation. So believe it or not, Joseph is one of the translators of the Bible. He translates pattern, the word pattern is a Semitic word. And it means in Hebrew, one, some horn, literally a horn, or it means caught a meaning an opening of light that that light emerges from it. So in the Torah, it had the description of Musa that His face had horn, it had emergence of light, but he miss translated it that Moses had horns. So if you look at the statue of Moses in the Sistine Chapel in Rome, Moses outgrew the villa Mandelic, has been given to horns, can you believe it? And it's like, what, who would really do that? Who would put ram horns or you know, you can see the
images for yourself when you Google it? So Subhanallah when the Jews are asking, I believe when they're asking you to tell us about this one of horns. That's why you see Musa showing so much in the Quran, that they don't know who is the one of two eras, they don't know who is the one who actually has been given this concept of Param. So they're asking about one but Allah Subhana Allah gives them knowledge at the beginning of the surah man, let him be him in a whatever they say. It's not built on knowledge, II it to be Runa in Lavon, they're only establishing their faith and proofs on conjecture.
and whatever it is that they have been handed down from their forefathers. So they come to the prophets of Allah who it was settled him the people of Karachi. And they begin to ask him, they say, Listen, Mr. Herman, all right, we're going to show you that you're a charlatan, we're going to prove that you're a liar. We're going to prove it to your people who believe in you. And we're going to make it something that we take pride to show intellectually, logically, spiritually, that what you're brought is not true. We want you to answer these questions. A bit of now I know Roy, give us true complete knowledge about the soul of beer, and fit yet an hour Ilkka will ask Bill now and
they'll coordinate tell us about their country and tell us about the three. Now if you're the prophets of Allah, Allah, you send them and you're a false claimant, you know, that the people sitting in front of you don't know. And even the Jews, they don't have true knowledge of what the soul is, because how are you going to show it? The profit could answer anyone could say the soul is in your big left toe, right? It could be anything. Nobody, nobody's able to prove other ones. But the prophets Allah Allah Allah He was salam Malyan to quadreal How're 1 million to con in Howard's is in sort of an edge. He does not speak of his own volition. He does not speak of his own opinions.
He does not make his own tenants and statements, the prophets Allah Allah Azza wa sallam says it Tony had them. Come back tomorrow, not have an answer for you. And here Allah teaches him and all of us a decisive lesson. The prophet does not say insha Allah. If Allah's Will is that I will inform you, then it will be given to me tomorrow. He doesn't say inshallah. God willing. So they come back the next day. And they said, Where's the answer? And at that at 320 hada. I have no knowledge. I don't know, come back tomorrow and forgets to say insha Allah. Now the moment they heard that entry, I don't know. Allahu Adam. Come back tomorrow. they rejoiced, right, and they began to proclaim
their false gods, and they slaughtered camels to feast on and they had a magnificent drunken, you know, event in Mecca, Hamza bin Mohammed, we've shown Mohammed is a fraud is a liar is a imposter. He doesn't have an answer. And then the next day they come and the next day they come and this according to some of the people of tafsir occurred for 15 Complete nights, until finally the prophet is making dua to Allah O Allah return the wagon and this has happened to him before in Fedora annual the way that the way he had periods of gap one as long as nearly two years some some amount of said most likely six months and then sort of at Baja was revealed there after was a time of anxiety and
worry and fear for the province. It settled him and here a loss of kindness to add a return to breed with a lengthy
A revelation from the end of sorbitol is raw waste Aluna Kanemaru Collier Waterman Emery Robbie Juana ot terminal AMI Illa Khalid eventually at the end of the year, they ask you in question you about the soul say to them that the soul of the concern of my Lord, it is not something that you will be able to comprehend and its reality will not manifest that you will be able to understand it even if discussed to you. And Allah continues about the young men of the cave and Allah ends with way as Aluna can Villa codename Khalsa Coalsack, Lolly Camino Vicara let me give you the true mention of who he is. And in all throughout the surah Musa becomes the great protagonist in the
Surah. It's almost as if Allah really through the lines of the question of the People of the Book, and shows that Musa is central, but it's not the one that you have misrepresented in your forgeries. In that sense. Allah Subhana Allah Allah is most merciful to the prophets of Allah who it was sent him and eventually the way he arrives and the Prophet enters. And this is evidence that the prophet does not speak from his own opinion. Because the Prophet could have said, Sal, Allah, I sell them anything and they would have had to accept his answer. There's no way to prove otherwise. But here the prophets I sent him says, I don't know. Now there are multiple lessons in this moment and in
exchange and I know we have the last few minutes left in Sharma, the first lesson for you and I is don't vow that something will occur. Unless you put Allah Subhana Allah in mind and heart, the concept of inshallah is not just you say insha Allah is that you put Allah in your mind, in your heart, in your Nia, of what you seek to execute. It should not be a reflexive statement that you make. Oh, yeah, Jalan sha Allah Insha Allah, it certainly should not be used when you intend to do other than it. So it's not meant to be misleading, right? It's not meant to be you say to your children in sha Allah Insha Allah, and you've already decided it's a no right. We should have the
fortitude to say yes and no. And we should have the insight to not allow the words of Allah subhanho wa taala. To me, were misrepresenting the word in sha Allah is before the fact during the fact and after the fact. Sometimes we have this forgotten sunnah that we say in sha Allah just before getting involved in something or doing something, but the concept of insha Allah is even during the action. So you are asking in sha Allah, this will be completed in good and you know, this is found in evidence in the Quran, in the prophets of Allah that they would say, as Ibrahim and Ismail as they're completing the kava in sha Allah it'll be completed and after they completed the umbel
Allahu Allah may Allah accept it. And that's why in the Surah You see the word Masha Allah also manifest in the story of the two men of the gardens of the two gardens, Lola in the health agenda taco, colita, masha Allah, perhaps now that you enter your garden it's been for it's been seeded and planted and it's fruiting. Now after you said in sha Allah to get it started in sha Allah in its work through it, say Masha Allah, this is what Allah willed for me. It's not my own doing. So in sha Allah begins and is during an action where Masha Allah concludes it. And that's why you see the balance of both words, established in the Surah and nowhere else, and the prophets I send them is
reviewed. When I tackle them in any shape in the Farragut Delica Illa Insha Allah, Mohammed Dawn, don't let it ever happen again, that you are to vow or promise to do something unless you say and proclaim into our intention that I am the one who will will it for you and allow you to fulfill it. There is an important associated lesson that we also have, where Allah says in the Quran
wema Tasha, Guna Illa Insha Allah, that whatever you willing to being is only because Allah has allowed you to have that will and it's only because of the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala that you'll be able to achieve it. There is an associated meaning in this in the Hadith of the prophets, I send them to Abdullah Abbas, which is found in the Sahaba and recorded in the 40 Hadith of Imam nawawi where the prophet says to him yeah who learn Oh young boy YOUNG MAN
Yeah Apple the lie of the guarding of Allah's laws and boundaries and parameters and he will guard you, you know, be concerned with Allah and Allah
will have you in, in, in his protection. You know, know that the world if they gathered to give you something that Allah did not will for you, they cannot provide it to you and know equally that if Allah has given you something and all of the Ummah comes together to prevent it, it cannot be prevented, that the pen has written and the scroll has been lifted in that is an assurity that when you and I say Insha Allah, it is part of the will of Allah for us that we are fulfilling what it is that we are going to seek. So, I want you to put in your mind that when you have intended to do something and you say inshallah this will be achieved, I know that this is something that will be
achievable for you because Allah because Allah has blessed you with the dua of blessing the action before him. A lot of people who are entering into a new job or looking for a new relationship they forget insha Allah as being a dua in getting them forward. Another important lesson that I want you to take from this is the necessity of being prepared intellectually and spiritually to defend our faith, to defend with rationale with reason and with Scripture, the words of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the intellectual assault upon the old man remains from that time that people are going to come to challenge our faith with questions and apologetics
becomes important for us to be scripturally sound to be very well and truly aware of who we are and what we are and why we are on accordance to our tradition, from our books and sources. Number three, is that the people who have an affinity to God, the People of the Scripture in the book, that they have likeness to us, and they have statements that are found with them that times have corrupted them, that the hands of pen Alsina to whom we're idea of who we are, yeah, Luenell Kitab they have twisted the book they have Miss translated the book for Waverly, Latina, to goon and kita. You know, I give severe warning to those who ascribe down the Word of God, the ad him and they write it and
they have missed translated and have added and omitted and corrupted it intentionally or unintentionally. So there is a chastisement from Allah subhanho to Ireland. Now, you will notice in the Surah another powerful lesson is the importance of storytelling. And when Allah answers the questions, he gives fables and stories, and he gives lessons through important figures, who are shared yet remain obscure. We don't know the name of a fiddle, it's not his name, its description. He's the Evergreen one meaning that he's one whose knowledge is always fresh. He's always acquainted with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, we see that there are lessons of Musa alayhis salam lessons of the young
men in the cave lesson of the men in in the garden lesson of the proverb and the parable of life while the blocking method at dunya there is the lesson of Adam and Eve bliss and bliss, not worshiping Allah by following the command of prostrating to add them. There is the lesson of who is the Lakota name and the adventure that he has in the fulfillment of the obligation of protecting humanity from juju, juju, all of this comes together in this surah that is meant to be studied and recited each and every Friday to give us this inoculation of protection. The final lesson that I'll share with you as we end so we have a little bit more time with reflections with Oh says a Tamia is
that Allah subhana wa Taala
wants you and I to know that there will be challenges that comes in life, and not because you and I want something and not because you and I are worthy of an answer, that it has to be immediate. Even Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, there were moments of strain and stress, that he had to endure patiently with some until revelation comes, you cannot will the will of Allah Subhana Allah to Island women Tisha una isla and Yasha Allah not because I want it not because it's good not because it's Allah not because I've gone about it the right way. Not because I've made your and worshipped Allah and pray tahajjud that I can force the enter from Allah before Allah knows it is time to be
delivered. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us a greater insight into the Quran blesses us and our homes with its love and its practice and it's reading. May Allah make our mouths fragrant throughout the month of Ramadan with it in the morning. May Allah make our bodies tired instead
I think in prayer with it towards him in the depth of the night, especially in the last night a lot more. I mean, I mean, you know, but I mean, just that Camilla Farah, there's so many profound reflections and, and gems from that session just like l'affaire, for that session. And for everyone who has been actively mashallah collecting them for us in the chat and sharing on Telegram, please continue to do so. I don't know if we have one minute left, if we can. If anyone has questions that are related to the topic of today's session, or some of the anecdotes that Shahid gave you, you're welcome to drop them into the chat. I'll give you guys just a second to type and my apologies I
misspoke so that Samia is coming tomorrow today we have Sheikh Mohammed Salim, who is going to be doing our Qur'an reflect session in sha Allah have Ramadan rain, that's my only excuse. Should Yeah, I know Mashallah. You're quite active. We've got we've had a few classes with you post Ramadan. So we look forward to having any more classes and I inshallah I'll ask you in a second what you have going on, but I see Amina Goulet has asked, Should we say insha? Allah when making the offer ourselves?
All right, does that cut off here? That's a good question. There are certain drive that you do say insha Allah in and there are other drugs that you don't. So where it's your that is for the unseen in the alpha right You do not say oh Allah give me Jana Insha Allah, but when you are making dua for something that is in this temporary world, and you are asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to fulfill it, you can use the word Insha Allah, you know, in sha Allah, I am going to Mecca this year. May Allah You know, so this is a form of Jah. You're asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant you, you know the passage to Mecca insha Allah may Allah grant us are standing on the mountain of
Great question just like Allah here the next question. And the last one that I see from Zeba is Is it true that the prophecies I'm used to base a lot of slippers on sort of God?
I do not know if this will LaHood the either of them there was another question that came about, can we read? Can we listen to sort of recap instead of reading it, you can listen to it while following along, you can just listen to it. So if you can't read it on your own and completed, then listen to it while following and reading. If you can't do that, then just listen to it attentively with full attention. If you can't do that, then listen to it, even if it's in the background where you are listening, but you might be doing something else Insha Allah, so it's cascading order of events, and I do highly recommend that you read a translation of it, and that you read a short of an explanation
of the translation, or tafseer of it in sha Allah
in ufology exactly like Russia here. Just a quick question before you leave anything exciting that you have going on anything that you can share with us. I feel like we have had so much activity recently and I'm looking forward to what we have next with you.
So there is always wonderful things in sha Allah coming up, just after Hajj in sha Allah if Allah wills it for us. I have a tour of a hadith tour to Bihar, some amount of Thailand, and Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and also a visit in sha Allah to Bosnia. So for those who are interested, I would love to have you along you can find details of it coming up on my social media or at Heritage Tours. If you just do Heritage Tours, yeah, Ebrahim.

For those who can't afford it. It's
free of charge. It's a coherent curriculum, but those who can we do appreciate your support and you're welcome to support the initiatives we do it makes it free for those who aren't able to register. I think at the moment there's nearly 2000 students who are benefiting from different places in the world where they're only able to contribute a small amount because of the other people Masha Allah who are able to fulfill it. So may Allah Subhana Allah grant us it's higher than baraka and allow you to support that which is righteous. Finally, within method of Insha Allah we have some wonderful things coming. May Allah Subhana Allah to allow it to be completed in sha

awesome sighs Subhanallah you had to put that in there she made you didn't want to leave an opportunity. It's almost
He loves Australia too much this is the problem is that both of you are advertising I just hope you don't enjoy it like to too much to to come back. Oh, I don't know what that I'm coming tomorrow. So
last week, I got you have a heavy session to follow shift. I can't wait to jump into these verses. Once again, today we're covering certificate have vs number 23 to 24 I'll drop that link Inshallah, in the chat. And let's jump into it this minute. All right, let's move out of my Nauheim over here. So you know now what to do with the pain, what are the one a lot of volume in the p&l Mohammed, while early he was he was sending this even if you're on my bad. So, you know, you know, what we've been doing in our reflection series throughout, you know, I wanted to be able to provide different forms of reflection or different types of reflection different tools that we can do, and display
those tools that you know, one thing could work for someone, something else can work for someone.
And the board is like a very vast science. So it's it's quite expensive. And
in order for us to cover all of that in like the I think whatever 12 sessions or 13 sessions we have together or something like that. It's not possible. So today, what I wanted to be able to talk about is, is that sometimes when we want to do to the Buddha on the individual ayat of the surah. Sometimes it's also nice to have a bird's eye view of why the surah exists in the first place. And what is it called talk about sciatica head towards the end, he kind of alluded towards that. So I'm going to share my screen here I have
my share button.
Did you give me access? I don't see my share button today. There
Okay, all right. Let's see it No, to me. Alright, so this is a quick introduction to Solotica have, like a high level so that we can all understand what is happening in the Surah. So obviously, the surah has lots of benefits, lots of numerous Hadees. It is recommended that we pray we recite the surah. You know, starting Thursday night. And then the timing of it. There's lots of differences between the football when the time ends, what is after Joomla public Joomla about the Joomla. It's before Joomla. Astrid reminds it after Mona but everybody says it starts off in Maghrib of a Thursday night, which is later than Joomla. Allah subhanaw taala and news provinces centum has told
us in numerous IDs that you know, if you recite to listen to half you will have no until the next week, if you recite too little calf your will have nor from the footsteps of your doors all the way to Kaaba wherever you are. And again, numerous IDs and benefits related to this. Now Susan calf is a Makita has in terms of revelation that 69 What is sometimes also interesting is that if we are talking about the FCS to see, which was the surah that was revealed prior to that, and what was the surah that was revealed after that after that, so you're able to actually contextualize the revolution console. There were events happening in Hull attacker had these for the last year comes
and then right after that comes sort of some gap. And then right after that comes sort of no hell no hell. So all of these allow us to actually understand and we've from a car perspective, what was taking place in that time. Now,
I wanted to present like this very simple mind map, shift, you're here kind of alluded towards that. But this is a high level mind map of sort of Caf. So it has
four primary predominant stories, you have the people of the cave, you have the the person with two gardens, you have Musa and Fidor. And you ally him, Sam, and you have little Kernighan, or Carnegie, all of these three supporters, the four stories, pretty much take up pretty big chunk of it, then you have mentioned of, of Iblees. And you know, all of that is there, but these are the primary main surahs. Now, who knows from in the chat, let me pop up my chat here, who knows?
Quickly, who is able to tell me what is some of the other benefits of sorts and if
anybody wants to elaborate
protection from the judge me. So now you will know that it has protection from the gel, what are some of the primary tests of the gel? What is the gel going to test us? Not our individual test, but what's the category of that test?
A test of faith beautiful. That's one of the tests over here. So if you if you go in this, one of the tests that you're going to be test was is going to be fixed not off your dean. Right. The jail is going to test your dean people are going to be tested profits that are seldom he said, you know, it is
going to be such difficult to test that a person sometimes you know would be afraid of their own family and they wouldn't want their family to leave the house they would want they would lock their family in the house just because of the fear of of everybody losing process and I'm sad if the gel comes out or any one of you come for Anna hajiya Who do that if he comes out and I am amongst you don't worry about it. I got it covered. But well enough Raj Wallace to come and if he comes out and I'm not amongst you, then every person had you do enough sir every person is responsible for themselves you know you gotta have everything ready you know your your protection mechanisms so
fitna off of teen, what do you think is the fitna of two guardians which category does this belong in there and how is it correlated to the fitness of the child
Hey, to garden beautiful somebody said that fitna of wealth mal fit now wealth Allah subhanaw taala is going to give certain powers to the general you know prophets of salaam said that you know you have you will have gold, you know how the honeybee honeybees they come out, you know and you see them there, you know come out of their, their, you know, when they come out of their hives and you they are in swarms. Similarly, you would see gold and silver following the gel like that.
So, imagine today, and you know, when I was studying this one of my Tafseer classes, one of my chefs, he said something he said you know, if there was an announcement made that you know, every Fajr, we shall be distributing $100 For every person who comes for purchase a lot. Imagine you'd have more, you know, more people would show up for Fudger let alone you'll actually have fathers waking up their own kids to come for Fudger younger kids, everybody, like every person who shows up for Fudger wives, everybody would be there, right? Instead, if this is the fitna that we would be tested with $100 at an odd time that imagine the fitna of the gel and how we would react to it right
it is it's really terrifying right at that time, especially because we're living in such a materialistic world. Then you have Musa and Sega or huddle then you have Musa and Hadith and what do you think is the test of Musa and other and how is that related to knowledge beautiful, it's a test of knowledge. Mashallah, you guys are on top man, this is so good. I love this this is like a hyper knowledgeable community mashallah, that now for him? How is the gel going TO to test us whether anybody remembers?
How's the job going to you can bring people up here so if you want SoundScan if you guys want to raise your hand, we can inshallah grab you as soon as your PVC your hands.
In Sharla false claims. Okay. Not really kind of area. Go right ahead. Sorry. Yeah, Zarya.
I think he the resurrection and the knowledge of the Unseen knowledge is the unseen. Beautiful, beautiful Zakah l'affaire knowledge of the Unseen. So what is he gonna say? He's gonna say, what if I told you the conversation you had with your wife last night to the bedroom?
And the person's like, Yeah, I'll believe you. If you tell me that. Right. I believe in no problem. If you tell me what I had, there was nobody there. And he's going to be able to deceive us, because the entire name the job itself, what does it mean? The job itself is Dejan deception. So he's deceiving you, because it seems it seems to you that he knows but he is using shouting and other sources, he doesn't truly have knowledge of the Unseen. So he's going to test you with your enemy is going to test you with, you know, telling you things that sometimes it's almost like we you know, we're like, oh my god, it's so almost impossible. And you know, I sometimes, you know, if you've
seen those already shows called, like, these shows that like where you come out and got talent, one talent, something like that, that one of these shows, like, you know, there was a clip that I saw where this guy comes up, and he's like, I'll read the mind. And I'll write numbers. And you know, and he writes, like, you know, he looks at these individuals that writes the numbers they were thinking, and then he guesses and asks all of them to write on a piece of paper, the number you wrote, and he shows them and said, look at that you wrote 18 And I have 18 You wrote 15 And I have 15 and stuff and like the entire crowd is like up and applauding gonna go oh my god, how's that
possible? And imagine like, this is the guy who's using some basic science to be able to guess and he made a pretty good guess that John is going to use some very accurate science like Allah is going to have given him some certain powers and it'll be really scary for us right? Think about that at that time. And then you have you know, the test of the rain, which is the fifth now of power eight, which is fifth now power today. All the fights, all the corruption all the the, you know, sometimes we see a whole bunch of stuff taking place in any Muslim lands and non Muslim lands and even sometimes we
If you think about it, like even Sadly, in some of our massages, all of this corruption that is happening, it's all about power. Right? Nobody's getting paid and msgid When you come on the board of a machine, you're not getting paid. Right? But it's power. It's it's tasty, yummy, yum, yum, it tastes really good and fasting too.
So, so these are the tests that a lot is, you know, Allah has covered this entire store in so I thought this was important. And you know, I did a small quick graphic for you guys, you know, you guys can wait for the job to show up, you know, right now the job would show up in a second. Hey, there you go. Bam, the gel showed up.
Candidate labs, so that allows us to give you know that you know, if somebody wants to take a screenshot, I'll leave it here. Take a screenshot so that you're able to see this. This is a good mind map for all of you to always whenever you get stuck and you're like, Okay, what is all about? And what are the different tests? Right now, what's really interesting is, in each story, Allah tells you what's the boat of salvation.
So if you're going to be tested with the LM with Deen with the jungle,
then in the story of people of the cave, Allah tells you, what is the boat of salvation? How do you protect yourself?
Right. And I think that is where things get really interesting. Let me
go back one second, I'm gonna go to another slide here.
So what I've done is I've
play up play and then share.
Alright, so you all saw that the first deck. Now this is another deck. So this is all sort of cut half but now Dean mile in power, empower the journal. And then in each I've done two for you. And I've left two blank for you, as an exercise, so fit now 15 How do you protect yourself? You need to hang out with pious company.
sessions like these friendships, all of your friends, every single one of your companions, you need to have company that is pious. If you don't have pious company, if you don't force yourself in a pious company, if you don't hang out with pious company,
here's what happens. It becomes very difficult for us to stay on track with our own religion.
If you think about Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in total Cara insults they have Allah subhanaw taala what does he tell Rasul? Allah, so send them he says,
what's good enough? Second, I live in their own out of bombilla Dotty well as she you read when I watch her, be patiently we you know what's good enough. Second, hold yourself patient and I let the you know their own out of bombilla that you will actually with those who call upon Allah subhanaw taala day and night you read when our Jehol all they want is the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala question for everyone here in that gathering where profitsystem is being commanded to hang out with pious people
who is adding value in that gathering?
So Allah is like telling the prophecy Salam was good enough. Sokka hold on you to yourself, with those people who are their only concern is the other owner of the home Villa that you will actually you read when I watch her. All they do is they call upon Allah subhanaw taala. And they are pious people and you hold on to yourself for Prophet sallallahu Sallam in that company, who is the one who's adding value? Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam because there is nobody who is at a higher level of piety then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He doesn't need a pious company.
His piety is a god gift.
And it is unchangeable. It doesn't change. It's a constant for him.
Then the question for you and I is then why is he commanded to still hang out with the pious company when his piety will not change?
Beautiful One of them is a message for us.
Definitely, it's the benefit for the company. Okay, I see that.
But it's the primary over here. The biggest example for us is that if this prophet who is not in need of this company, is being commanded by Allah subhanaw taala to hang out with this people, these these the Sahaba all they do is worship Allah subhanaw taala and the word that Allah has used as Wellsburg enough Sokka it's not easy to hang out with pious people. You gotta be patient. Allah is like hold yourself patiently with them. Right? It's not easy.
When you're going to be with somebody super pious and they're there, you know, that pious company, they're going to pick on you there have certain traits that sometimes there may be rough, there'll be edgy, but Allah is like hold yourself together with them because they are on the path of piety and that's what you're going to need look at the story of us Hubble can have if they were not together, if they were not together, Allah would not have you know, they would not have been protected, but they were together and they said to one one another what is there to sell to move home I will do and I mean, do any law that when they secluded themselves or in group of them, number
three, the third point over here for the from the story so powerful is what the story is that
there was six of there were seven of them. What's the eight who was the eight?
The dog, beautiful dog.
Notice how in the entire Quran,
Allah subhanaw taala.
This dog is in our shed era. It's not a very, you know, pious animal. It's not It's like that just in most of the filth, if it touches you, there's a certain way you have to cleanse and stuff. It's a creation of Allah subhanaw taala. But again, it's not considered to be one of the like, whoa, you can't even have it in the house. The angels don't enter. There's so many teachings about that. Now, this dog, when it accompanied these pious individuals, Allah subhanho wa Taala attributed the dog to them. And Allah says, well, caribou home and their dog will caribou home and their dog will Calico home and their dog six times Allah says their dog I eat just just even if it was a dog, when it
entered a pious company it irrespective of the fact that it was a dog it became their dog I II, the element of it took over and he became mold happen became he became one of them well caliber home, who are these home all these pious people their dog, just because they decided to follow them? On the contrary.
Allah subhanaw taala shows us in other parts of the Quran, when the animal is better than the Insan. Then then the insaan is attributed to the animal and rocky forever Isla Rob Booker be us Hi, Bill, feel the people of the elephant.
People off the elephant.
Right, as opposed to, you know, the elephant of the people. It was the people of the elephant. So over here, the elephant had a much better intelligence and integrity. His name was Muhammad and he said I'm not going to destroy the Kaaba. And over here, the people were far less than their intellectual existence and Allah attributed the people are You're so dumb, even the elephant was much better than you. And this is how you know if you ponder on the greater themes of the Quran, then you bring all of these ideas, then the next one
is the fitna of man fitna of man. And in that is the Quiddity of this dunya the actual reality of this dunya Allah subhanho wa Taala describes from to us in, in this Allah describes to us what this dunya is and my federal hieratic dunya and the example of this life and all of this is is explicitly explained to us that we understand that we never get deceived by this dunya we never get deceived by this dunya and the solution to both to understand the value of this dunya and pious company is, in both the cases these were individuals who were calling out and telling people calling people to Allah subhana wa Tada. So you have to be actively involved in a state of promoting the deen of Allah
subhanaw taala especially if you're living in the western lands, you know, you have no other choice, but to be in one of the two states you are either actively supporting some form of Dawa so you have a justification on the Day of Judgment that Allah I was making lots of money in America and Canada and UK but I was fully supporting my brothers and sisters in Dawa in that those lands and also supporting my brothers and sisters across and number two or you're actually out and you're physically doing the power yourself and we talked about that yesterday no are these things are in the story yesterday I would leave the fitness realm and fitness power for the for you guys to ponder
I mean those if you read certain Cafe tonight after maghrib you you can quickly even in translations, you should be able to realize what are some of the the boats I call them the boats of salvation right we need to jump on these boats. I mean just story is not good but we need to be on
One of these votes or four of these votes simultaneously somehow so that if we're tested by the judge, then you know, obviously we you know, Allah protect us from that in sha Allah. Now, coming back to my
I hope this was helpful. I do have a very intensive course that I teach and so we're gonna have
I do have some recordings, somewhere on the internet, you guys can look it up, it's not on my channel, but somewhere.
Also on my clubhouse, I have recordings of that. So I think we finished sort of a half in like 49 sessions 49 One hour session, so it took almost a 50 hour 50 to 60 hours spending weekly, every Wednesday in Milton. So, so you know, Hamdulillah I think it's beneficial for everyone and I think it's a very powerful surah I am going to start sort of like a half after maybe in the last 10 minutes of Ramadan for every night and pm. I'll tell you the links where it will be streamed so you guys can go and watch it. It's in my masjid and other than that, inshallah I hope this was beneficial. Let me open the screens now. Back to mice.
alright. Bismillah so, our today's vs
okay, bravo. Amazing.
Okay, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So we're doing two verses, but Akula and Alicia in in New
Delhi. Can I then in sha Allah with Rebecca ADA aniseed. So I just wanted to understand what did shift your hair covered? I didn't I wasn't able to come in earlier. But or which must have been Atlanta. I'm in comes a stomach Center in Atlanta.
I'm up ma'am, here. So quick question for you guys. So why was this sutra revealed? anybody remembers?
anybody remembers a chip? Yeah, her cover the purpose of this? It was as a response to what? As the response to the questions of choose Yes, as far as spend, you want to
So from what I remember, the two of these rabbis went to the Prophet sallallaahu Salam, and they questioned him about the people of the girl have a question about Heather and the question about the name. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, I will have the answer ready for you tomorrow. But Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forgot to say in sha Allah. So Allah and dalla tested him and then on the third day, I believe Alesund Allah sent down what letter hola Nisha in any violent ad or that shall Allah and He gave the responses. Beautiful, okay. It was actually the 15th today. So after 15 days, Allah subhanaw taala revealed the answer. Beautiful. So that was that
was a lesson for all of us. Right that Allah subhanaw taala is teaching through teaching prophets, Allah Salam teaching us something, right? That whenever it comes to the matters of what's going to happen in the future, Prophet sallallahu Sallam is being told, Well, that's a cool analogy in if I don't Delica then Okay, now this comes right in the middle. So if you've ever noticed if this comes right smack in the middle of the story.
Uh, you know, a speaker the story is something something totally interesting about the story came up so I was reading I was reading this article
and I forgot the author's name he's very famous Jordanian Palestinian scholar. Anyhow, come to me, so I was reading an article. You guys know how many how many days did they stay in the cave?
Whether it be foofy Caffee him
who remembers harass me? I didn't see any and I was there two to 300 a night. Okay, why? Why was 309 Let's go to that verse. Actually. It's right after we just saw it ready to go
we just saw it all right here. Well, let me see if you can figure that out. I mean, it's in Sydney and I was down to two sides right after those verses right in your shot law so well let me see if you can see him harassing me it's an SR. That was just how why why did he not say that as you know, why was that notice and add another nine to it.
They stayed in the in the K for 400 Beautiful comedy and lunar ears beautiful. Here's the part that's gonna blow your mind is all of you guys this is gonna be so crazy. So where the story begins? Okay, the story begins here we go up in Nicholson Alec and about humble help.
In the invitation and we'll get up to him. So if you start from a noun videos and Amadora be him all the way down
to one of these Sophie Caffee himself with me, I didn't see Nina was that just Ha, there is exactly 309 words.
So Allah encapsulated the entire story in 309 words.
And this is not a coincidence, right? Everything is mathematical in the Quran. So so, you know, when I read the article, I just didn't believe myself, I'm like, No, this is not possible. This is not possible. Then I went back and I was like, I started counting. I'm like, oh my god, this is 389 words. This is 309 words. And this tells us that you know, only Allah subhanaw taala is capable of, of having that level of miracle within the Quran. Right? And that's why we've not even touched the smallest surface of the knowledge that exists in that Quran. Okay.
I think you can look it up. It's an article that talks about I don't see the author's name, man, he's such a, it's gonna bother me Hold on Hafsa it's gonna bother me so much. I need to pick it up right now.
I have it here in
what's the author's name along with
you don't have it to him. You can also share afterwards, I'll share I think I'll share it how you can I was trying to look for it. You know, it's gonna it's going to be stuck in my head because I'm going to be speaking and I wouldn't be like, my back processor is gonna be like, what's that name? What's the name? He's a Philistine scholar. It'll come up to me and he was the one who actually mentioned that. So Allah subhanaw taala. He says, Whatever you do, if you caffeine, tell us I'm sorry, an hour before what at the pool and Alicia in any time when? Danika Illa Ania. sha Allah, this revelation, the aroma they said that the way Allah addressed Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam in this revelation. It GEMA tadi is this idea? It actually shows us the honor of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala. And how is that? Think about this with me for a second Surah Surah Allah says, Adam have these people. They're asking him these questions there. There were three questions that were asked. The third question which was missed was you know, what is about what about Ra? And those are the three questions they asked, then Allah subhanaw taala
over here he comes. And first and foremost, instead of telling Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam after 15 days that you know, when I talk about analgesia in India Island, Attica Illa. Ayesha, Allah was good Rebecca aniseed and to starting with this and then starting spiritual care have, Allah begins with the entire story for the Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, so that nobody points a finger to rasool Allah said, I sent him that look, look, look, you know, your your, your, your God, he was not happy with you. Rather he honored Rasul Allah and he kept his respect and gave him the answer what he wanted and afterwards began in the middle of the story, and it's embedded in the middle so it's
almost gets lost. Right, and this is showing a loss at the towards Prophet sallallahu it was seven, right, that's number one.
Number two, that through this, Allah also taught Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam one of the greatest ideas of new Goolwa which is that you peg everything to Allah subhanaw taala we have mentioned this before and I'll mention this again here for FYI reasons for people and the early humans salaam, they do not make mistakes. What they do sometimes is that they're they're required to operate at 100% perfection level 100%. So So and when we talk about perfection, like their perfection has to be perfect, every single action super perfect every single time. Every now and then if they drop from that perfection, even a slightest bit. Allah subhanaw taala comes in
rectifies that because they were supposed to be the standards. Now this dropping like if you and I forget to say in sha Allah, this is not a major sin, neither was a sin in the help of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, but it was to teach Rasulullah that Adam, that you are a prophet of Allah.
And you cannot talk about something and revelation of Allah, because revelation of Allah is the evening of its bit with the isn't of Allah subhanaw taala it comes with the permission of Allah. So you don't control that revelation. And this is the level that you're at this is Allah's domain, and do not cross those boundaries. And through that Allah suddenly, you know, rectified and showed us the other
but it is added for us, that you and me and every single one of us we have a boundary. And we should always remember that those boundaries should never be crossed. So, if you are talking about like, you know, somebody might start arguing on a fiscal issue and that person himself a he doesn't know if number two
number two, you know, this particular person he doesn't have number number one, number two some basic things that he needs to rectify in his life such as you know certain Fatiha how's your recitation first it was in fact, I mean, that's what Allah is gonna ask you because you know, you're gonna pray five times a day with a broken Zoltan Fatiha. I don't know if that's gonna settle well, right on the Day of Judgment. Unless you're struggling and you're perfecting and you're trying and the stuff that's fine. Imperfection is fine. But if a person is complicit and they're like, you know, forget about it, I you know, I'd also like to Fatiha I'll recite it however it is, who cares
if I need to perfect my tweets in that? Right? Do we remember that every domain every person should remain in their domains. And that is the cause of most conflicts in the world today, when people fail to realize that I may be number one in this domain. But when I come in this domain, right, I am no longer nobody. Because I any ill you'll see this oftentimes being presented or represented when different scholars meet like a senior scholar, they will all be like, we don't know anything. It's not that, you know, you see, like, even somebody like somebody at the level of Shekhawati Bisou Nisha sort of body Sheikh Hamza, all of these levels, but when they're in front of their teachers,
they're like, We don't know anything. I mean, these are the same teachers who are listening to them in YouTube, but when they come because they know that this teacher I am nothing in front of this teacher, and that recognition is the other that Rasul Allah was teaching rasool Allah was teaching promises to them, but it's a visa vie other for you and me to learn. Jimmy, I hope that is
that's clear. Number three, number three.
Is that Allah subhanaw taala. Again, we've already covered that. So there were actually there were three points when I joined one and two together so number one, was that Allah Oh, yeah. Number three was generally someone who's arrogant. Oh, yeah. I'll tell you this tomorrow.
Allah subhanaw taala is not in need of You know, like somebody said something like this about Allah. Yeah, you know what, I'll let you know what happens Allah asked Allah tomorrow let you know, Allah subhanaw taala does not like this attitude. Right? Allah does not like this attitude. But despite the fact that it also Lhasa seldom he.
The rest of the arrogant people Allah doesn't respond to right because he does not like this anybody being in the realm of Allah and just doesn't like that. Allah subhanaw taala talks about arrogance and arrogance is my cloak. Manasa Annie fee Ha, whosoever tries to take you know or touch that, right? Manasa and if He ha, Fatah to who what else buddy? I'll cut that person and I don't care. Because Allah is a you. He you know, he has ultimate power and he doesn't like anybody even touching his power. But in case of Rasulullah Salem, you know, Allah He never saw I didn't have that intention at all. But despite that fact, Allah subhanaw taala still honored prophets of Salaam and
responded to him. He could have said you've made a mistake. You are not person responsible for ye anyways. I'm not sending out any way to but Allah still responded to Prophet sallallahu Sallam squarey
so Allah says, Allah insha Allah they don't say anything, except that you couple it with the word insha Allah
Bismillah Insha Allah, masha Allah, these are standard, you know slogans of Muslim worlds. It doesn't matter where you are. When you go to Makkah, you get to realize every person says Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah Bismillah, Masha, Allah insha, Allah, all of these things are our identity markers for us Muslims.
And we should be super proud of these things. I see sometimes many people in the you know, I see a Muslim person, I see their name tag I said, I'm Alikum they're even afraid to say why likoma Salaam because they feel not like they don't feel that as part of their identity. Right? They feel like oh, what are the other people going to say they're going to know like, you know, we as Muslims, we should pride ourselves for these slogans that are part of our artists, you know, it's part of our identity as salaam alaikum, Bismillah, Alhamdulillah Insha Allah, Masha, Allah don't shy away and then if somebody asks it's an opportunity for you to explain to them when I say Al Hamdulillah it
means all Praise to Allah. When I say Masha Allah it means whatever Allah wills so this way you get an opportunity to explain your deen to other people
in sha Allah,
that Allah says what's called Rebecca Edina St. Paul will call us at any rugby league, Accra Birmingham.
Russia and perhaps Allah me guide me, you know, yeah, DNA Allah may guide me in the outcrop, I mean had Russia that a much nearer path than this one Russia in the right way, the word of Russia in the Quran comes 13 times. And out of the 13 times a quarter of the times comes in sort of to gas.
So four times or five times its intuitive Gaff. And I think the other four times is in sort of a gin. And then the rest of it is in the rest of the surahs I think two times in sort of filled up or, or one time and sort of,
I don't remember off top my head. So there's a difference between a Russia da so there's a difference between Russia and Russia, Russia and Russia. whenever Allah uses the word Russia,
the word Russia with Lamar or Russia
matters of dunya and matters of Ophira but when Allah subhanaw taala uses the word Rashad,
then it only entails matters of Asherah and not dunya. So when you a quick exercise for you pick up one of your phones and your favorite app, type in the word Russia, look at all the verses and you will see that right that Allah subhanaw taala whenever he uses Russian it's it's it you know, the meaning could entail deny nothing, but whenever the eyes about Russia, then it has all the meaning can only be the meanings off of Astra
and this is what you know, Pharaohs about it. He has mentioned in his Tafseer books. Inshallah, if anybody has any questions for today, there's a two verses much easier, but I thought, you know, just do a much more comprehensive see, and then you know, that bird's eye view allows us to be able to understand, you know, much, you know,
like a bigger bird's eye view so that when we go back into the tafsir, we'll be able to actually enjoy that much better. I can take some questions I have, I think around four and a half, four to five minutes. Bismillah
is your and he's got a hand up. Surely you can unmute.
I said, I'm Alikum warahmatu Allahi wa barakaatuh. Who is Chef? While it comes to Rama who has a layover tattoo? Yes, please. So chef, I just wanted to know, please correct me if I'm wrong, I was thinking about this idea. And one of the things that comes to my mind is is like little bit you know, a psychological element. So there are two extreme sides now it is like where there's one like group of people who who kind of you know, they say that, okay, everything is possible you can do this, you can do that you're not like groupthink. And we have a lot of you know, coaches and all and to talk about it you can do this you can do that you can be everything just go up and things like
that. And on the other hand, like on the other hand, we have people like oh, I can do anything is fully the 100 of Allah, you know, everything you know, comes from Allah so probably I can't actually take any initiative by my own like when Matt tofield de la Vela basically the misinterpretation of what Allah has actually said in the Quran. So, so, what I wanted to think like do you think that this ayah can actually provide us the balanced equation between these two and say, Okay, first you need to take a decision, you need to make an intention to do something right. Be it like a worldly life or for the sake of Allah doing some you know, good thing and good deeds, and then you have to
say, inshallah Huhtala will be able to do this basically adding a loss into your equation, only then it can be you know, kind of balanced and finished and completed BS. I got your question. Circle ahead. So I think your question is an entire two hour seminar, you know, other in our understanding of puddle and stuff, but what you have alluded to that can use this idea towards, you know, Allah's decree and other I mean, that's a general edit for we should all have that when you're planning to do something we should say the word Insha Allah, I don't think it addresses the question that you have raised that understanding this sometimes people have you can do whatever you want, you can be
whatever you want to be and all of those subliminals and everything that nowadays people are listening to I am successful, I am rich, I am successful and then they listening to it like high speed. I don't think this addresses that and this cannot be applied to that. But in general I would recommend you know, having you know, this idea of insha Allah a vanilla and as for other I don't want to touch on it because it's going to just go on on in a complete different tangent, but as Anna
and anybody else if you have questions, please come up. I said I want even more than that, which is aka last year, was such beautiful in the dub work. Every time I listen to your lectures I have I develop a sort of a love for that those ideas and love for the book that is for me and humbled and now looking
The only thing that I wanted to add is when you said these identity markers are Salam Alikum and shall nervously now Subhan Allah, and all of these things. I was just thinking with your lecture that these identity markers are basically a form of our worship like when we say Sonali Commodus, salaam Salaam is the name of the attribute of Allah subhanaw taala the one who gives life is you with peace. And then we say in sha Allah, Masha, Allah, you show you like, if we focus on the meaning of Ivana, what is it rather than secretly? Sure it is, what's your question?
The only thing is that is the My question is that whenever I want to connect people, to the swindler, the qualities of Allah that these the the one who blesses you with peace and the one and everything, like every time, we see a lot of people with a lot of ideas, different ideas in their life, whenever they're deciding, I say, just go for the Sahara, or Chara, and all of these things. They just sometimes become arrogant. How do I have to handle with these people? Then?
Wow, that's like an entire lecture to
how to deal with arrogant people. You know, that's, I would just just one word, one line answer that I can give you is that, you know,
be as humble as possible. And do not give them the reins of your
emotional control. Because that's what an arrogant person is seeking. And sometimes when you lose control, then you know, you can, you know,
you can empower them number one and number two arrogant people be be arrogant man. They were there at the time of Rasulullah they were there at the time of and Rasul Allah, if you look at his way of life, he never spent much time with them. Right? He just, you know, they came they went, you keep on doing your work and you don't waste a lot of energy on on them, and eventually they'll run out of steam. Alright, I'll take one more question. Please be very precise to your questions stick to the question that you have related to what we have covered and you know, hopefully I can I can address that. I said I'm what I call Matoba raka Toshi Malika Salama.
mashallah, okay. There is some issue here like people miss you're saying insha Allah by saying it even talk we know we are not going to do something out there. It's almost immoral.
How many present that you have to work with that aware? And that's my question. Thank you. Because you know, there's a joke that said you gotta you gotta stay away from the Muslims IBM right you know that they got to stay the Muslims IBM insha Allah. B isn't Allah Masha Allah
you got to stay where for the Muslims three IBM's right so the Muslim three IBM's are well known. When I used to work in Saudi and stuff the white the white people like no it'd be when they would come to America. They would make jokes he's like, you know, man, these you know, you Muslims, we got to stay away from your IBM's man. When I hear in sha Allah as a salesperson or be if needed, or Masha Allah I know that that deals not going through. Right and this is so this is so sad and very embarrassing as Muslims that we've used we've actually tokenize these statements and we don't we've lost the true value of them. And to your question, I think just emulating the best examples forward
is the best way to do you know you'd be the best person and you know when you say Masha Allah mean it because it's it is it is a dua when you say insha Allah it is a dua when you say Bismillah, Bismillah Masha Allah all of these things are to us and mean it and mean it well, inshallah
white or non Muslim white and non Muslim people and also, you know, Muslim people. I can take one more question 28 Let's go quickly, and then I'll go in and Sharla gonna be more hands so she I don't want to annoy someone.
Let's get one more chance. So iPhone, Vaughn Celine. Go ahead, Vaughn Celine.
I'm sorry, I'm right.
I wanted to ask or rather,
I wanted to ask to repeat something because I didn't understand.
You said that. Allah subhanaw taala does not like when somebody is, like you said the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and told the two people who asked him to come back tomorrow and I don't know you said that. Allah subhanaw taala does not like that or did I just miss it? No, no. So So what a lot what is so what he is Allah's decree? Right? Allah decides when he comes so Rasul Allah says, Allah, He said, Yeah, you know what? I'll give you the answer tomorrow when where he will come to me I will give you the answer. So Allah subhanaw taala did not like that because Allah is like, what he is Allah's decree nightdress.
