00:00:45--> 00:01:29

87 of swords in Egypt, where Allah subhana wa tada says, what are the Athena ceramidin muthoni Well, or another alvim that verily we have given you, the seven oft repeated verses, and the magnificent are on the seven oft repeated verses is pseudotyped Fatiha, and our last year is a gift of pseudo pseudo Fatiha. I mentioned this verse in that series that Allah says I've given you suited for it. And I've given you the Quran. And because the return factor is so important, Allah calls it seven oft repeated verses, because there is nothing on earth that is recited more than sort of terrified to think about it. And I said this last year, no piece of human literature, no other divine

00:01:29--> 00:02:17

scripture revealed or falsified, nothing else is recited as much as pseudo tel Fatiha, the average Muslim recites return at least 2025 times a day, multiply that by the entire globe from the beginning of the time until the end of times and you get astronomical numbers so Allah calls it I have given you the seven oft repeated verses and I've given you the magnificent Koran therefore, what are the Medina lotta Medina, Anika Isla Medina be as large a minimum Zahara to dunya that don't have your eyes wander to the beautiful things that I have given the others of the beauties of this world IE you have the Quran. Don't be greedy for what you see others have that are disbelievers in

00:02:17--> 00:02:58

Allah and you feel in your heart. Why don't I have that Latin would deny Nick, don't let your eyes wander to that which they have that we have given them as an enjoyment and merriment when we've given you the Quran, be happy with the Quran, that is the real treasure. And Allah says wokefield Jenna, Hakka Lil momineen, and lower your wings over the believers, ie keep the company of the righteous, don't keep the company of the wicked, be amongst the righteous people and be merciful amongst them. And if you are merciful amongst them, your heart will not be greedy for the enticement of this world. And this is so true. My dear brothers and sisters, when you're around the righteous

00:02:58--> 00:03:35

people, then you're not concerned with what style of car they're driving, what watch they're wearing, what purse they have, they're reminding you of a lion is messenger. And when you're around people of the dounia, all they talk about is the material things. So Allah says, Be happy with the Quran, be with the righteous people don't look with greed with lust upon that which we have given them to tempt them with. And then Allah subhana wa tada says, what will in the doodle mubin and announced to the people and this is why this verse is so important, this verse and three verses later, this verse signal to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he has to go public with Islam.

00:03:35--> 00:04:19

That's why this verses very significant. These were the verses that were revealed to the prophet SAW sent him to tell him now is the time to go public. Before this verse was revealed, Allah revealed instead of the shoe out off one and then asherah takakura been worn your close relatives. So soft tissue era, open the scope of that work to only the relatives. This verse told them to proclaim to all of mankind. Now pause here in this era, we mentioned that there were many phases of Dawa in the beginning the Dow was private, he didn't go public, he only went to people who need trusted aboubaker. So do it now and others. Then Allah said go to your family, one that I shared article a

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

Caribbean that similar to Shara, then this is the third stage, the third stage go public to all the world. That's why sooner than later, these concluding verses are so important. It's a milestone in the serum that sooner than hedger tells the Profit System go public. So what could any zero movie tell all of mankind? You are the Warner that is clearly a warner. I'm telling you the truth and I am a warner then Allah criticizes the kurush comma and zillah mahkota semi alladhina Gerardo Khurana Ilene, just like we had revealed upon the mock test, I mean, what does it mean here scholars have different what exactly it refers to

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

One opinion we'll stick with this opinion for our hearts era. It refers to the Quraysh when they differ about how to respond to the Quran, a quota seven means to be divided makdessi mean they were in different groups? What was the different groups? How to explain what the Quran is some said the Quran is magic. Others said the Quran is poetry. Others said the Quran is the ramblings of a madman, others that the jinn taught him other said he's taught by this and that so these are democracy mean that Allah azza wa jal is saying they have broken up they have split amongst themselves trying to decide what is the Quran for of decolonization ln agema in which I swear by your Lord or Mohammed,

00:05:41--> 00:06:24

we will ask them all on the day of judgment about what they used to do American Ramadan, then Allah says false di Bhima to model. Many scholars say this was the primary verse that told him to go public. Some say it was three verses before were called Indian energy Romo being forced to stand up and do what you have been commanded to do. First that sada means to become clear, in fact, precisely for the Arabs you saw there are means to split in half. So that means to split in half. That's what when you have a headache, you say what, so that as if your head is splitting in half, right? So when you split something in half what happens? whatever's inside becomes clear. So this is what first

00:06:24--> 00:07:07

that means. Stand up and become clear. ie, do what you're going to do firmly and with power, force that the man tomorrow, do what I've told you to do with firmness and power. What did Allah Tell him to do? announce to the world he's a prophet. So Allah is telling him, don't hesitate. Don't waver stand up, be clear, be visible at what I have told you to do? What are you learning wish to kill him and turn away from the idol worshipers from the pagans? Don't worry about them. Don't fight them, don't engage them turn away from them. Then Allah says in cafe knuckle Mr. z in this verse is a beautiful verse that we need to remind ourselves, especially in this time, when unfortunately, we

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

have talked against the profit loss of people making fun of the profits of a lot. Why do you sell them? Allah tells the Profit System in the very first verse that told him to go public, Allah tells him, don't worry, I will take care of those who mock you. In cafe knock on wood stairs, in anybody who makes fun of you, I will take care of him. A lot takes on the challenge himself. Allah says I will deal with anybody who is making fun of you who is sarcastic, who is demeaning, who is derogatory. And this verse will law he the Sierra proves the truth from beginning to end, every incident in which somebody was sarcastic and demeaning to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We

00:07:49--> 00:08:28

saw his effect. Look at that famous incident in early makup, when seven or eight of the leaders of the kurush threw a rotten animal on the Prophet solo said them as he was in such that and nobody could defend him at that time, because these were all the leaders, these were all the elites of the tribes, all of the elites of the tribes, seven of them were there, and they were laughing so hard that they literally fell onto the floor, smacking each other's back laughing at the Prophet system with the blood and entrails until only Fatima could come and save her father and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Oh Allah I complained to you have not been where you are a lot of

00:08:28--> 00:09:08

complaints you have been caught up or a lot of complained to you have and he mentioned them name by name by name and Abdullah Ahmed now who was watching in the distance, but he was not of the elite he was if he had gotten in he would have been killed him now said well law he every one that the prophets I seldom mentioned by name I saw with my own eyes lying dead on the battlefield of budget whoever the process and I mentioned in this manner Oh Allah you have to deal with him why because Allah says I will deal with them in cafe knockin was Desi in I will deal with anybody who mocks you who makes fun of you. So Yasser Allah, don't worry, stand up. Do as you're commanded. I will take

00:09:08--> 00:09:54

care of those who reject you. Those who take besides Allah false gods, and surely they will find out the truth of what they're doing. What are they not Nemo? A naka de casa de Luca de Maria Kowloon. This is a beautiful verse that tells us our Prophet system was a human being. Allah says, and we know you're a pseudo law, that your heart is in pain. You feel grief, because of the slurs that they say about you. Our process them with human You know, there's an expression in English sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. We all know that's not true. Well, we all know that's not true. Sometimes words hurt us more than physical pain. Sometimes words hurt us more

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

than physical pain. Sticks and stones may break my bones but words also hurt.

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

And our profit center was very hurt when his own kith and kin, his own cousins and uncles, his own relatives that he knew since they were children and since he was a child are saying such vulgar things about him, he's a madman, he's possessed this and that it hurt him. And Allah subhana wa tada says, What? apadana and mo anaklia Leah kousaka Maya Poon. We know your heart is in grief. You'll do Posada, you can feel the tension. You can feel the difficulty because of what they are saying. Every single one of us who feels grief when people talk about him, read this verse. What did Allah Tell him to do? Every one of us against him, some calumny, some slander, some evil is spread and will

00:10:44--> 00:11:29

lie. This is the reality of human nature. Everybody spreads things about everybody unfortunately, except for those whom Allah has saved, this is the reality righteous are evil, whoever you are, people talk about you. So here we have a constellation, Allah is saying yada sutala I know you are hurt at what they are saying. So what is the response? This is such a beautiful response. This is the Islamic response. So Allah says for Sep, the ham, the Arabic our co minister God, when they make fun of you, for sub babraham the Arabic you be involved in praising Allah, extra test via extra dicker welcome mina saju, Deen and increase your sujood. So take help in your worship of Allah to

00:11:29--> 00:12:09

fortify yourself from the problems of this world. Turn to Allah when the people are making fun of you, increase your Vicar increase your sign up. Notice it's a beautiful example here. We know your greed because of what they say to the Prophet. So instead of Allah didn't say respond in kind, we know it's had to respond in kind. We know that job is we know when somebody does harm you can do harm back. This is in the Quran, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, but what is the ideal? What is the prophetic model? What is the command to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, when they stoop to that level, you rise up to the worship of Allah, when they stoop to such a filthy level,

00:12:09--> 00:12:47

you stupendous such that in front of a lot, and not to respond to them in kind, and this is the reality of our shediac Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, whoever humbles himself for the sake of Allah, Allah will raise his ranks. When you humble yourself and you don't fight for your ego, you don't fight for yourself, Allah will raise your ranks, the people will respect you. And this is exactly what happened to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Allah tells him, we know your heart is going to be in pain because of what they say. So instead of responding to them in kind, increase your test spear, and B of those who worship Allah, wa Buddha robuck, and continue

00:12:47--> 00:13:33

your ibadah had to kuryakyn until your teen comes to you and your pain over here means death until death comes to you. Now, this is a very profound point. Allah didn't say that, keep on doing this until you win over them. Because maybe some of us will not win over those who are enemies of Allah in this world. Maybe they will continue to mock and we will die while they're still mocking in this world. But what will be the result of us in the next and then in the next? Who will be the end winner? If we remain firm in the worship of Allah, of course we will be. And this is what our profit system is being told. We know you are hurt at what they say. Don't worry about that. You first step

00:13:33--> 00:14:11

back behind the object, increase your test we're we're committed to the process prostrate to Allah. And there is clearly a reference to selected over here as well, that when you're at times of difficulty, wake up in the middle of the night wake up in the last third of the of the night. And why Buddha, Robert, continue worshiping Allah until death comes to you, my dear brothers and sisters, the ultimate satisfaction that one finds when we have been harmed when volume has been done. When people say things about us, when we feel as if the world has abandoned us. The ultimate satisfaction is to find the law to discover a law to open up a relationship with Allah subhanho wa

00:14:11--> 00:14:48

Taala The one who has Allah doesn't need anybody else. But the one who doesn't have a law will law he the whole world will not help him nor will he feel that emptiness. This is what our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is told and we should follow the same example and role model that when we're in times of difficulty and grief and distress, increase our look our relationship with Allah subhana wa tada and we will find that relationship will give us what we need in order to overcome the problems of this world. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah make us of those who worship him until your thing comes to us was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
