00:00:02--> 00:00:47

insha Allah will do a short Tafseer of certain verses that are recited in the first Orca. sudut. Al Anon recited verses 53 Onwards and it's a very common selection. It's very powerful selection as well. So does that an arm is a mid makansutra revealed at the height of the makan Dawa. And so its entire theme is the Dawa to the Quraysh and before the revelation of Sudan and a delegation had come to our party, and they had said to Abu Talib, that if you tell the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to eliminate from his gathering, the people of the lower social class and they mentioned by name Bilal, and they mentioned Elon Musk's route, and they mentioned others they said, these are

00:00:47--> 00:01:33

people, we don't want them. If you tell him to eliminate these people, we might be more open to attending and perhaps even accepting. There was a social hierarchy or racism. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed Switzerland. And the first verse that we're going to mention today begins with this concept. Right before this, I didn't recite this this is a few verses before Allah subhanho wa Taala forbids the Prophet sallallahu Sallam from expelling the righteous from his gathering. Wala total RadioNet Rob bomba will actually do not expel from your gatherings those who are invoking Allah morning and evening. If you expel them from your gatherings for takuna minute volume in you shall be

00:01:33--> 00:02:19

amongst the volume in In other words, no compromise. We're not going to change our principle that all believers are equal. There is no racism there is no social hierarchy. Everybody comes in attends with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then the verses go on. And then Allah azza wa jal says, what I just recited in the first struck off what either jackal Latina you may know and Abby, Tina Falco Salam, Aleikum. cutterbar Rob Bukom, Allah enough say Rama, when the people who believe in our verses come to you, you should greet them welcome them by saying Salaam Alaikum. This is an explicit command that we're supposed to say salam Wa alaykum rather than expelling them from your

00:02:19--> 00:03:10

gathering. Welcome them. Say to them Allah has pieces upon you say to them You shall be in peace. I wish for you peace and Allah Salam will be upon you. Then give them glad tidings cheer them up. Katara Bukom Allah enough see her Rama inform them that your Lord has decreed for himself that he shall be merciful. cateva Rob Bukom Allah enough say Rama, your Lord has decreed that he shall be merciful. This verse shows us many things of the things that shows us is that Allah subhana wa Taala has dictated upon himself a code of conduct and laws. Allah subhana wa Tada has a code of conduct, but who made that code? No one above Allah. Allah azza wa jal made it for himself. Allah azza wa jal

00:03:10--> 00:03:59

has a code that he made for himself and the Quran and the Sunnah. Tell us some of the statements of this code. For example, in the Hadith that the prophets of salaam said that in Marathi toggleable hobby my Rama shall always overcome my wrath in the Quran. Well O'Meara Bukoba Allah may Allah be, your LORD shall never do loom. So the Quran and the Sunnah tell a certain maximum certain principles and rules, and this is one of them. Your Lord has decreed for himself that he shall be merciful, He is mercy and from him mercy comes and the default is mercy. Then Allah says, under whom and I made him come, Sue and beat your holla whoever does any sin, while he is ignorant, through metabolome and

00:03:59--> 00:04:45

by the he was law, then he repents, and he changes his waist. Tell him that Allah is love food and Rahim, tell him that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is going to forgive. So the Prophet system is being told, give glad tidings to the people, cheer them up, give them optimism, tell them no matter what you've done, when you come here you shall be forgiven, but the condition is taba. What a slob. you repent, you feel guilty and you mend your ways you change your lifestyle, then know that Allah is Allah for and Allah is Rahim. Then Allah says, What can I do? You can do fasudil Yachty what it has been a saloon moody mean, this is how we clarify the signs so that the Sabine of the Muslims can be

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

made clear that what the path of the sinners can be made clear. This is an interesting verse, because Allah is saying, I want you to know the path of the sinners. I want you to go to the path of evil or

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

They follow the Allahu Allah said, some of the Sahaba would ask the Prophet system about the good. And I would ask him about the evil in order that I recognize it and abstain from it. The Quran teaches us this rule, we don't just learn the good we also learned the evil. What can I do to fasulo IRT while it has been so beautiful Majidi mean Allah wants the Seville of the MoodGYM and Allah wants the Sabine in us an autonomous team he wants not to be clear as well. So we should know good to follow it and we should know evil to recognize and abstain away from it. Then Allah subhana wa Tada says, pull in need to heat one up with a Latina to ruin them in doing Hola Hola. Hola como

00:05:46--> 00:06:30

Cordoba lol to either woman animated moto Deen say to them ya rasool Allah, I do not worship what you are following your desires by worshipping other than Allah. If I were to do so then I would be of those who are misguided. Now this teaches us a very interesting tactic of Dawa rather than accuse you guys are going to help you guys are all misguided. Flip the script. I don't do this. If I do it, I would be from those who are last call in the other beginner to me, Robbie, I have knowledge from ALLAH, you speak of yourself. I have an irritant like Ibrahim when he said to his father, I have a knowledge you don't have follow me you shall be guided. And the believer in the palace of Musa the

00:06:30--> 00:07:10

palace of announced said the same thing. And the use of in the prison said the same thing. I don't do this. If I did it, I would be misguided. If I did it, I would be a jaw Hill. If I did it I would be a volume. Because when you accuse you say you're avoid him, you're a foster, you're this and that. What is the natural result? You're going to become defensive. But when you say I don't do this, if I did it I would be very foolish. How could I worship an idol besides Allah so here the Prophet system is being told by Allah to speak in the first person say I am not worshiping and Allah has forbidden me to worship and if I were to do so then I will be from the volume in then Allah

00:07:10--> 00:08:00

subhana wa Tada says, we're in the home of our tutorial AB la Yeah, Allah Maha Illa. Who, to Allah belongs Mufasa to Allah to Allah belongs to the keys of all life. Notice how eloquent Allah didn't say in this verse. He has ill Malachite, he says in other places in the Quran, but in this verse, Allah says to Allah belongs the keys that unlock all of the hype, it's as if labor is so much and of course it is. And Allah has the keys in order to get into the hype. Or to hype lie either Musa Illa, who then to demonstrate what is the knowledge of Allah, Allah subhana wa Tada says, Well, yeah, and Mo Marfil very well baharu Allah knows what is in the oceans and the land. Allah knows everything in

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

the land and everything in the ocean. Well yeah, and then we'll Marfil Barry will have a static picture imagine everything Allah knows it, then Allah goes on, why am I Tusculum in water cotton, if any change occurs if even a leaf falls, so with a static picture right now, everything Allah knows then if any change occurs, the smallest change a leaf falls, why not just go to Ben What are cutting Illa Allah Maha and then what if the change is hidden? That Allah says with a hat button if you go to battle or even a seed that is hidden inside the depths of the darkness, Allah knows it. So any knowledge hidden or secret, any knowledge we can see or hidden in the ground, and then while our

00:08:43--> 00:09:27

routes been wala, yob is neither wet nor dry, in other words, not only the object, but the adjectives of the object, the characteristics of the object, how that object is, whether it is wet or dry, whether it is large or small, while ultimate Voila, abbyson elaphiti Tabby Mubin, not only does Allah know it, but it is written in the Lord and mifold This is the knowledge of the of Allah subhanho wa Taala being manifested in local food, then Allah azza wa jal goes on. Well, who will ready yet a Wafaa Combi Layli where Allah Musa Gerardo Mina Howard, he is the one who causes you to die at night. tawa doesn't mean necessarily die could mean here it means to take your souls at

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

night. And we know sleep is the brother of death as a Profit System said a Nomu a whole moat. And the Quran tells us explicitly that Allah azza wa jal takes our souls every night. So Allah is saying, not only do I have knowledge of the entire creation, I control the creation your daily cycle well who will lead the ATO afar can be laid every night when you go to sleep, what happens? I take your soul. Well, yeah, let me do my job to be in the house. And I'm aware of the action

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

As you do during the day, during the night to sleep during the day you're walking, walking around well yeah, I know my dad had been to hop through Maya but I feel comfy here and he will send your souls back when you wake up. So the cycle of sleep and the cycle of going to bed and waking up. Allah is explicitly saying, I am the one who takes your souls and Sarita Zoomer. Allah also says the same thing. That Hola Hola Hola. Hola. Hola here to offend unforeseen mot. Ha, well, let's see LEM temat FIM Anamika Allah takes the souls of those who died. And of all those who go to sleep, Allah takes their souls and again I've mentioned in other lectures, when Allah takes the soul during

00:10:40--> 00:11:07

sleep, there is a connection still with the body. And when Allah takes the soul a death the connection finishes, otherwise in both cases the soul leaves the body. So Allah says WIAA Allah will major abdomen Nihari thumb may have either completely you called on agile mucem Allah will continue to cause you to sleep and wake up sleep and wake up sleep and wake up for how long the agilan mucem until your time has come. And then you have

00:11:09--> 00:11:19

imagined Musa from what is it imagine with some mathema where's the her fault here? Should have at least 20 for for the epic? Yeah

00:11:22--> 00:12:06

well, we'll do a factory lady Well yeah, I know my German doctor, Mr. Hardy film my battlefield agent with some mathema II, managerial consumer you know, bukhoma Quantum Time balloon, then to Him you shall return and he shall tell you exactly all you have done well, who will call hero folk or anybody and he is the QA here, above all of his creation or hit here means the executor, the judge, the one in control, he is the QA hitter. Nothing happens in the dominion of the car here, except that the car hit is aware well, who will call hero folk or a birdie heap while you receive it from her father? He sends protectors he sends around you angels, and they will protect you while your

00:12:06--> 00:12:48

pseudo Alikum have forgotten Hector ADA J. Luna, when our time comes telephoto soon our hula you for return. The angels will take his soul. In other words, until your time comes there are angels protecting you. An accident happens a disaster happens a sickness happens you will not go back to Allah until your time comes. The minute your time comes, the angels will leave and the angel of death will come and you will return back to Allah subhanahu wata Allah. Then Allah subhana wa Taala goes on. I will start with this verse. I didn't do every single verse But when introduced to a selection, this is a verse that our Prophet system himself recited and commented on. Allah says, All

00:12:48--> 00:13:37

who will call zero and yerba de comida Berman filthy calm Oh mentality Oh to truly come, oh, you will be so calm Shia say Allah azza wa jal has the power to send upon you a punishment from above, or a punishment from below, or to divide you into different groups so that you are fighting one another. Our Prophet system once recited this verse, And when he said, he is the one who is able to send a punishment from above, he said, our wounds will be what chick I seek refuge in Allah from this ever happening. Then from below, who will be watching I seek refuge in Allah from this happening, then he can cause you to fight in a civil war. Our Prophet saw some said this is easier

00:13:37--> 00:14:20

to deal with. This is easier than calamities. And this is shows us that the natural calamities that take place a disaster or an earthquake, you know, a hurricane that happens it is of a level that is more difficult than two groups fighting one another and I gave the whole but when the earthquakes happen of Turkey I talked about this as well, when an entire region is destroyed. When a natural disaster happens, the level of panic and chaos is far greater than when two groups of people are fighting one another. So Allah azza wa jal is telling the Quraysh if Allah wanted to, he could do all of this and destroy you. And Allah azza wa jal is allowing you some time. And one final phrase

00:14:20--> 00:14:46

that is in the series. One final phrase that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells our prophets are some to say that Palma in the metastatic juubi he I don't have what you're asking me for. I don't have the miracles and I don't have the punishment in electric mo Illa Allah that belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala who lo Cana in the metastatic Judo NaVi la OBL? I'm Rubini What

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

if I had the power

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

to give you what you wanted? There would be no more dispute and the matter would be resolved. This is a very deep verse and with this will conclude what does it mean?

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

Our scholars say, the Quraysh we're asking the professor some, where's the punishment? Send us down the punishment, allow the skies to break up, show us where is this divine wrath. And the Profit System is saying, I don't have the power to do this. And if I did, I would bring it about, and you would not exist anymore.

00:15:22--> 00:16:11

In other words, this verse is saying that if the prophets of Saddam had this power to punish the Quraysh, they would have been punished already. Now somebody is going to say, Hold on a sec, does this conflict with thought if there's this conflict for thought, If we say no, but if is a case and the Qureshi has a case, or if it's a one off, or if they rejected and the process of gave them time, as for the Quraysh, they rejected and rejected and rejected and rejected, knowing the truth they rejected. And so Allah is telling the Prophet system to announce, if I had the power, I would have executed the punishment and you would not be here. But he didn't have that power Allah did. and

00:16:11--> 00:16:49

Allah knew what the process of did not know. And that's why Allah is saying, we're in the home of heart Your hype. Allah has the knowledge of the hype, not you. You're a surah Allah, you don't know what's going to happen in 1015 years the Quran will accept Islam. And that's why Allah azza wa jal did not give him that power. And this shows us as well. You deal with people differently, the people of thought if deserved chance, the people have the courage, the prophets or some did not think they deserved a chance, but Allah azza wa jal gave them a chance and when Allah gave them a chance, eventually they accepted Islam and returned back to Allah subhanho wa Taala this was just a short

00:16:49--> 00:17:01

commentary on some of the verses we recited and inshallah perhaps one day wanted to give a longer commentary of the whole Quran if Allah ever gives me the tofield to do that but inshallah some benefit in this selection, which is akmola was salam ala moana how to live what a cancer
