00:07:58--> 00:07:59

said, I want a common law

00:08:01--> 00:08:39

and handed in law Alhamdulillah. All praise belongs to the Almighty, the all powerful that I learned about him. His blessings are too numerous to even enumerate for he is the Aziz that Karim To Him belongs all of the creation and he shall be our judge on your Medina, we ask him for the eternal guardians of gender and seek refuge in Him from the fire of jehane hamdulillah. Today, we will be moving on to two suitors of the Quran, surah immodium and Surah Taha, and again, a quick reminder, Hamdulillah, half the month has gone how quickly Subhanallah half the month has already gone. And so please make sure that you are doing your Quranic recitation, you're praying your tarawih prayers as

00:08:39--> 00:09:19

well. Also, if you're not a part of our online Twitter family, please do join. We're having a blast on Twitter and hamdulillah those who know know, and so if you can join the hashtag is why to just make sure you're doing that. And as usual, our messages will always appreciate any help that you can give and their donations and how to give them all we appear on your screen. So let us move on Subramanyam Subramanyam is a mid sized mechi surah. And it was revealed very early on, as I had mentioned yesterday as well, that all of these folks who does this work have malaria, mental health, how they were all for revealed very early on, and most likely in the third or fourth year of the

00:09:19--> 00:10:00

preaching of the prophets, Allah laquanda who was send them. So Ramanujan consists of around seven verses less than half ridges, and it is at nine, seven pages. It's around 89 verses. And the main goal of Subramaniam is to affirm the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and to negate any partners and to negate this notion that he might have children which as you know, many faith traditions hold also it is to prove the hereafter. And the primary mechanism that Imodium uses is the mechanism of stories it employs stories throughout, and especially in the beginning. It is the story of Zachary and yahia and Maria Marisa, this is the bulk of the story.

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

Then it moves on very quickly to around a page about the story of our human his father, and then very quickly mentions five or six profits in quick succession. And then the last two pages are about the Day of Judgment, before the sutra concludes with some of the most explicit Quranic denials of Allah xojo, possibly taking a child, so we will inshallah to unpack all of this. But before I begin, as well, this surah, it has a very special place in the sea of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in the history of early Islam, that is, because when the Muslims migrated to Abu Senia, remember the kurush when they migrated down to Sydney, and they were being persecuted, and they

00:10:41--> 00:11:24

sought shelter in the Christian land of Abbey senior. And they had an emperor there by the name of osteoma, whose title was the new joshy. The new Joshua is the title and his name was Ostrom. And they sought shelter there, and the Quraysh tried to get them back. And so they sent a small delegation of two people to get them back. And so the joshy called the the companions at the head of them was Joshua, the cousin of the Office of the law to sell him, they defended themselves. And they went back, the delegates became even more enraged. And they hatched a plot and they said, Let us bring divisions between Christians and Muslims by bringing up the persona of Jesus. And so they said

00:11:24--> 00:12:05

to the new joshy, that they hold a heretical belief regarding Jesus, you didn't ask them about Jesus. So the messenger from the court came back to the Muslims. And they said, Come again tomorrow, because we want to ask you about Jesus now. And so the Sahaba became worried what is going to happen? And Jaffa said, We shall never speak anything but the truth, I'm not going to change the facts in order to please anyone. And so the judge actually asked Jafar of the cousin of the prophets of the La Jolla who was send them What do you Muslim say about Jesus, the son of Mary, and so the Jaffa he recited this surah and he recited at least half of the surah to Najafi. Can you imagine,

00:12:05--> 00:12:47

the halls of the palace of the Emperor would have been reverberating with 18 hour of the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there would have been a live translation going on as he's listening to the Quran, and it is being translated into his language. And the books of Cyril mentioned that as he was listening to it, and the translation who was listening to his eyes began to water and he began to cry until finally he confessed that this was the real teaching of Jesus, that what they believed was not the actual teaching of Jesus Christ Himself. And of course, this surah Subhana Allah, it opened up the heart of the emperor of the Abyssinian kingdom to embrace Islam, he

00:12:47--> 00:13:26

became a Muslim. And when he passed away, around a decade later, gibreel came and informed the Prophet salallahu it he was sending them, the very minute of his passing, gibreel came down, and he had the profit center announced to the Sahaba that you have a righteous brother, a brother of ours has passed away in the faraway land of Abyssinia. And of course, he was a secret Muslim, his family did not know it is allowed to be a secret Muslim of who circumstances are like that. He didn't tell his family but the Sahaba knew and the prophets of Salaam knew. And so there was no janazah to be prayed for him. And so the one and only time the Prophet Sall, Allahu Allah, he was sending prayed

00:13:26--> 00:14:06

Salatu janaza when there was no body in front, this is called the janaza idol Ha ha, the the Genesis over the person who's not in front of you in absentia, the only time he prayed it was for the joshy and so panela all of this is linked to this surah because it was this surah that touched his heart so much. Therefore, once again, I keep on telling you, but especially dear Muslims, these makansutra especially these early met consumers, listen to them in their tilava and are you typically recommend to one or two people I used to listen to shuffle me when I was a teenager, this particular pseudo pseudo medium, he has a beautiful rendering from back in the 90s, you will find it on YouTube. And

00:14:06--> 00:14:53

this was a song that I was listening to constantly on my way back and forth from the university when I would go when I was in America, in Houston, in any case, back to our students. So this surah another interesting tidbit about it is that this surah It is also one of the sutras that constantly references the name of Allah Rahman. In fact, a law calls himself or Roman in the sutra, many more times than the name of Allah. And in fact, even taymiyah said, this is the surah that tells us of Allah to his chosen ones. And I want you to do a quick survey. How many times does the name or the attribute of Allah is that a hammer can either have a human or the attribute or the concept of

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

Allah? And then you can tweet that out your answer, let us see who gets the right answer. So go over the surah

00:15:00--> 00:15:48

See how often does Allah subhana wa tada directly mention his name of a man or talk about his concept, the concept of the hammer of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The sutra begins with the story of Zakaria and beautifully describes how is that Korea made. And we can quickly pause here that from this drop of zecharia, we can extract a number of benefits about how we should make dua, Allah is telling us the drop of zekeriya so that we can learn from his drop. First and foremost, Eliza just says if neither Bonita and coffea so point number one, that he called out to a law in a humble and hushed tone privately, what do we make do Ah, we don't go stand in public and blare out what we

00:15:48--> 00:16:32

want. We asked a law in the secrecy of the last third of the night maybe in our privacy, we ask a lot in hushed tones a lot as though a joke can hear us when we simply speak out in a gentle manner in a humble manner. Number two zecharia he complains to Allah that He says, My Lord, my bones have grown feeble. My gray hair has sparked whiteness across my head. And so what we do is we complain to Allah and what does it mean to complain to a law remembering the story of Jacobian use of to complain to a law means to describe your situation in a manner to elicit sympathy back from a law not from anyone else so is that Korea is saying that oh my lord my bones have grown weak Oh my Lord

00:16:32--> 00:16:44

I'm so old oh my lord, look at my weight here have some ram on me. Oh a lot. So this is to complain to a lot. Number three in the zekeriya praises Allah subhanho wa Taala What am I couldn't be do I cannot be sure

00:16:46--> 00:17:26

that oh my lord, I've never been disappointed in my advice to you making dua to Allah has brought me pleasure. You have listened to my past two hours. And so we praise a lot when you make a do up. Whenever we raise our hands up. We say oh a law you are the one worthy to be asked or a law. You are the one who is the head the summit, Amanda Rahim. So we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala the way that he deserves number four in the dryer, the whole tone of the dryer is very optimistic that Zachary is confident that he shall gain what he wants. And this is another etiquette of our Prophet sallallahu it he was sent him said make dua to Allah while you feel certain that your dogs will be responded to

00:17:26--> 00:18:10

number five when Zachary is making a drop that he is saying, Oh Allah, give me a child, which is rock beer of the year. And oh my lord, make him someone who you are pleased with, we learned a fifth condition. And that is when we make dua about a worldly matter. We always should add a caveat that Oh, Allah grants me money and allow me to use it to come close to our law, grant me a child and make him righteous. Our Lord blessed me with this job and allow the job to be a means of Hello risk. So we always add the caveat. Why? Because we don't want something that we get in this world to become a fitna or a temptation or something that will drag us down. Anytime we ask for something of this

00:18:10--> 00:18:46

world, we should add the clause in our law make it good for me and I will love bring righteousness to it. Now obviously, if we ask something of the Hereafter, gender is always good. We don't say Oh Allah, Grant me agenda if you know it will be better for me agenda is better for you. You don't have to add the condition. But anything of this world we should add that condition or law, correct me a child and make it righteous and pious, Allah grant me this and that and make it a means of coming closer to you. And then the last point from all of this is looking at how often zecharia use the term of a beat, oh my lord three times he used the term yob B or rugby My lord, oh my Rob, and we

00:18:46--> 00:19:30

learned from this, that when you make dua to Allah, we should use the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala, as much as possible. And the name Rob is one of the most comprehensive two hours of a lot gender gelato. Now, when we did sort of alley and Milan, I had mentioned that Zakaria was an uncle to Maria. And this is an opinion and I glossed over it at then. And then a lot of people wrote me back on Twitter and whatnot. So to clarify that indeed, zecharia according to one interpretation, is an uncle to mme. This is one opinion. But there is another opinion out there that Zachary is the brother in law of laudium. And so, mom's older sister is married to Zachary, according to the second

00:19:30--> 00:19:59

opinion. And Maria's mother's sister is married to Zachary, according to the first opinion. And there is we don't know which of the two is valid in either case. Yeah. And they're Isa they are either immediate cousins or they are first cousins once removed. So either they themselves are first cousins, or Maria and yahaya are first cousins and so that would be that Lisa and and yahaya are first cousins once removed, as they say, point being that there is that blood relation between them and Allah blesses equity

00:20:00--> 00:20:45

With yahia yahia is praised in the Koran that he has been given wisdom in his youth. And we can say that how rare is it that teenagers and young children have wisdom? wisdom typically comes with older age, but Allah blesses those whom he chooses with. And in verse 13, Allah says, well hang on a minute, there was a carton wacana Takia. That Yeah, here was a gentle, an innocent, a pure soul, and he was also righteous Subhanallah being tender hearted, being innocent, being somebody who's compassionate, being somebody who doesn't have bad thoughts doesn't take advantage of the situation. This is a blessing from Allah. And Allah says we made Zachary tender we made Zachary a compassionate

00:20:45--> 00:21:29

and loving. And that's a great, great personality to have, especially in the relationship of a son. And so a lot praises that that we gave. We gave you these characteristics. The next chapter or the next story in the Subramaniam from 16 to 38. It is a longer section, it is a story of medium and ease, and how muddy and became frightened when she saw gibreel. And she thought this was a man who had an evil intent. And so she reminded you believe to fear Allah and she sought refuge and a law herself. At times of distress, you turn to Allah and you warn the person about the punishment of Allah subhana wa Tada. Of course, it was not a person, it was gibreel. So jabril gives her the good

00:21:29--> 00:22:11

news. And Maria withdraws to a remote place away from the temple, all alone and SubhanAllah. She has lived a very isolated and sheltered life anyway, she has never experienced the pangs of childbirth. And so can you imagine how her situation would have been? Can you imagine how difficult she the emotion she has the pain, the loneliness, there's not a single human being to help her and she is delivering a child giving birth. And so the Quran describes that in very vivid detail, that she seeks refuge under the shade of a tree and she's holding on to the tree and she says, Yeah, late honey, mid two cabinet hardware, Quintin sem, and see how I wish I had died before this, and no one

00:22:11--> 00:22:52

ever had heard of me, and Subhanallah sometimes do Muslims sometimes do your brothers and sisters, life gets very, very difficult and bad thoughts come across our minds. Sometimes we just wish that this would all finish even though technically Miriam. She was not asking for it to finish. Now she is saying that I wish I had never been born. Nonetheless, it is true that sometimes life becomes very difficult. And these types of thoughts come dear Muslim who's struggling with these issues, whether they their depression, whether there's just bad thoughts or anxiety, do your Muslim brother and sister know that you can turn to Allah and know that when you turn to Allah, you will be

00:22:52--> 00:23:33

blessed? You will be given many miracles, many of it has said I'm turned to Allah and what happened What happened? Allah sent an angel to comfort her, Allah sent an angel to speak to her a lot cause the river to flow next to her. Allah said to her shake the tree and date palms are going to come even in the most difficult situations turn to Allah and you will find your own many miracles happening. Maybe not an entire river will become maybe they will but maybe not an entire River. But I guarantee you not because I am speaking but a lot is saying as the Quran says whoever puts his trust in Allah, Allah subhana wa tada will find a way out for him. Do Muslims struggling with

00:23:33--> 00:24:12

negative thoughts struggling with depression, obviously, you know, get help if you need to no problem there. But the ultimate help is from Allah subhanho wa Tada. Make sure you turn to him. Make sure you open your heart to Him, make sure that you plead in front of him and Allah subhanho wa Taala will help you as he helped Maria all alone, and still Allah subhanho wa Taala Buster with so many miracles, and she found that inner strength to continue and to persevere, so to insha Allah to Allah will grant you that inner strength that you need. So she comes back, the Quran tells us carrying the baby and she has been forbidden to speak. And so she points to the baby and they say

00:24:12--> 00:24:57

how can we speak to the baby? And the baby itself becomes the miracle speaking from the cradle, and what does the baby say? What does this child that has just been born a few hours ago say? The baby says that I am the servant of Allah I am the nebby of Allah I am the one whom Allah has sent our saw and he was Salatu was katima doomed to higher that he has commanded me to pray and to give charity as long as I live. There is no vacation from the worship of a law. Your life is itself a gift. The least that we can do is that we are regular and routine in our generosity to others in our xikar and charity and in our prayers to Allah subhana wa Tada. We're better on Diwali day but why did he nim a

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

righteous son to my mother

00:25:00--> 00:25:47

panela the baby is run winding us of some of the most basic concepts of what it means to be somebody who submits to Allah worship Allah properly and be good unto others, especially your parents, especially your mother. And what follows verse 33 onwards is the reality that this is the story or this is the reality of Jesus. This is the true narrative Conal Hulk, Allah de m total, they are arguing, and I'm telling you exactly what Jesus was and what was the story about Jesus. And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions photographer has album in baby him that their groups differed amongst themselves regarding the reality of Jesus. And I said a few days ago, and now we repeat these types

00:25:47--> 00:26:34

of phrases truly are mind boggling. Because the average person, even the average Christian, at that time, had no idea of all of the various councils and heresies and various, the christological. They're called controversies over the nature of Jesus Christ. And the Koran is very explicit for elephant Zaboo. There were so many sects, so many groups about what is the nature of Jesus? And Allah is saying, and I know exactly what it is, and this is what it is. And this is a miracle of the Quran, to even point out all of these things, and then to say exactly how Jesus himself was. The story, then moves on to Ibrahim and his father, verses 41 to 50. And look, how perfect are the

00:26:34--> 00:27:20

manners of Ibrahim and his father, Marvel in the face of such opposition, such hostility, such antagonism Ibrahim keeps his composure, Ibrahim keeps his dignity and keeps his o'clock always at the level highest, and he keeps on addressing his father. Yeah, Bharatiya. abiti appetit My dearest father, my dearest Father, in spite of the harshness, even when his father says, Get out of here I shall kill you, I shall stone you to death. Even then, Ibrahim says Salaam when I like cellfood record, be that peace be unto you, I will continue to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive you to the very end, Ibrahim maintains his compassionate side. And so when he is patient with his

00:27:20--> 00:28:00

father, what was the result? We'll have Noah who is how color yaku we granted him righteous children and grandchildren Subhana Allah, the good treatment that you give to others it shall be rewarded when Ibrahim was so patient and so loving and so considerate. Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed him with loving children and loving grandchildren. And this is what Allah azza wa jal keeps on telling us. There is a phrase in our literature come out to the you know to Dan, as you do unto others, it shall be done unto you that when you show such compassion and mercy to others, especially to your parents, Allah subhanho wa Taala will bless you and Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant you as well,

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

the righteous offspring that will show you that compassion and mercy, mercy. The surah goes on. And a number of prophets are mentioned by name and we are told of them and to take them as role models. And then we are told that all of them would prostrate in front of a law when the verses of the Quran or the verses of revelation were recited to them and this is one of the places in the Quran, that has the famous is such that were the verses of such that we are strongly encouraged if we listen to it in Arabic, obviously in the English we don't have to, but if we listen to it in Arabic, we are strongly encouraged to prostrate to Allah subhana wa tada at this point in time, then at the very

00:28:41--> 00:29:25

next verse comes a warning after all of these beautiful stories, verse 59, it should really terrify us because May Allah protect us, but sometimes we feel maybe we are falling into this for holla from him back to him holophone after them generations came, what happened to them? What do they do? Although salata whatever oshawott. They delayed, they were lazy in their prayers. They didn't pray regularly, Ibrahim and the previous prophets and Isa from his childhood from when when he was an infant, they're saying the same thing. But then what happens? later generations come they get lazy, and they delay their prayers, and instead, whatever Shahada, they followed their desires, they their

00:29:25--> 00:29:59

lusts, and these people, they shall suffer the consequences. Prayer, dear Muslims automatically controls one's desires and leaving the prayer delaying the prayer not being, not being particularly about the prayer, it opens up the doors for following one's desires and therefore, from the beginning of time from the very core of the Quranic message, piety and prayer are linked together. piety and prayer go hand in hand, the more observant one is in one's prayer, the more one's heart is attached to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

Therefore do Muslim. Look at your lifestyle and see how regular Are you in the prayers and through that you will see how much your heart is attached to Allah subhana wa tada in the next session section. So Imodium beautifully describes gender some of the most beautiful verses. And there is a verse here as well, that has another interesting story for 60 419. at NSA in the MDR outbreak, we only come down when a law allows us to come down he knows what is ahead of us and what is behind us and what is all around us. And indeed, your Lord is precise and not forgetful. This verse came down. Remember, it's early Islam. Whenever God would come the Prophet system would love to meet you buddy.

00:30:39--> 00:31:15

Being in the company of angels. It made him happy. It made him good. Obviously the angel is coming down. And in some narrations we even hear that the Prophet system would prepare himself he would dress up if he knew who was coming. And so gibreel would cheer up the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked jabril Why don't you come more often? We will What do you see? Why don't you come more often you only come every time you have a revelation, I want to meet you. And Subhana Allah, people of piety are attracted to piety. You want to be in the company of the righteous, the prophets is a one to Jubilee to come. And Allah then revealed this verse, we

00:31:15--> 00:31:52

can only come down when Allah allows us to come down. We are not mortals like you, we have a mission, we only come when Allah allows us to come, I'm not just free to come here and there. So Allah is saying to the Prophet says that Jubilee, there's only going to come down when he has that task to do. And in this section as well. After the description of gender, then there is the description of the Day of Judgment. And one of the verses here is very important. And that is the only verse in the Quran that indirectly not directly indirectly references the bridge or the salt that every one of us shall pass over, verse number 71, when men come in,

00:31:54--> 00:32:42

there is none amongst you, except that you must pass over it. This is indeed an unavoidable decree from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the surah concludes by some of the most strict some of the most blunt some of the most powerful verses regarding the false claim the blasphemous claim that allies origin might possibly have children, these verses negate that claim. And I need to preface this by stating that one of the sad realities of our modern world is that we have been conditioned now to no longer have a strong sense of what it means to have faith or a man in a law and in the oneness of Allah. A lot of us we don't have that sense of honor. Or in Arabic, the term is Leela for Allah

00:32:42--> 00:33:08

subhanho wa Taala. We are taught to version of live and let live to the extent of Don't worry about anything, and it is true, we live and let live in the sense, nobody can force anyone to do anything. But still we live and let live. Sure. But in our hearts, we know what is the truth. And in our hearts, it we find it an element of offensiveness and an element of how can you possibly say this, let me give you a simple example that will help illustrate this point that imagine

00:33:09--> 00:33:49

given, for example, the current crisis right now everybody is respecting doctors, everybody is looking at the people and they deserve a lot of respect for what they're doing here. Imagine a doctor that has saved so many lives that is working effortlessly of renowned, illustrious doctor, who's really doing so much to help the community. And somebody then comes and insults this doctor. Somebody says really nasty things or maybe even more than this. How would we feel even if we I mean, how would we feel we would feel a sense of like pious rage, like how dare you do that? Why would you do that to this to this doctor we all admire. So when in the hill method either to Allah belongs the

00:33:49--> 00:34:30

infinitely more perfect example. How should we feel when others describe a lot in blasphemous manners, we should feel a sense of pious, you know, like, Why would you say that? How could you say that, even if they have the right, it doesn't make it right in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They might have the political right, even in an Islamic lands, a Christian and a Jew is allowed to have those beliefs. But that doesn't mean our hearts should be allowed to find those beliefs comfortable, they are not correct because Allah is too majestic, too holy, to have this description. And so Allah tells us this description and let me read these verses for you. In fact, verse 88

00:34:30--> 00:34:59

onwards, we'll call it a hurdle, Rahmani weleda. They say, a man has taken a son a child, you have brought forth a monstrosity. You have brought forth something that is blasphemous. The heavens themselves are going to split up the earth is going to run rupture. The mountains are going to crumble if they hear this statement when they attribute to the Most Merciful that they have a son when I am both in the Romani and yet either one or the other.

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

The mountains are going to crumble. The earth is going to shatter. Every object of the creation is screaming. Yet we hear in this world, our flesh and blood. We don't seem to mind this No, it is not befitting for the man to have a son, every single creation in the heavens and earth. It comes to Allah as a created servant, not as a son. It is not befitting that Allah has a son, Sahaja Hamada, he has enumerated them one by one he knows each and every entity, and each one of them will come alone to answer for himself on the Day of Judgment. And indeed, verse 9696, those who believe and do righteous deeds are a man shall write for them love. That's a beautiful verse you want to be loved,

00:35:45--> 00:36:20

right? You want to love to love you. You want the angels to love you. You want mankind to love you. How do you get the love from a law and even from the creation of a law? Those who believe and do good deeds? A law shall write acceptance and love for them? And verse 98, how many generations have we destroyed before then? Oh, Quraysh? How many generations? Can you even feel any of them? Or even Can you hear a whisper from them? They're all gone. So how do you know Oh, correlation alone will not do the same unto you. So this is a pseudo money and beautiful setup. We now quickly do pseudo.

00:36:21--> 00:36:22

pseudo Ha.

00:36:23--> 00:37:09

As we mentioned, it is one of the earliest revelations, it's a mid sized pseudo half pages, 10 pages, and it is 135 verses. And the primary goal of pseudo pa is to enumerate the blessings of a law upon His prophets, and hence the followers of the prophets and to talk about the trials that the prophets will face. And the pseudo also is a very detailed surah about the story of Musa alayhis salam. And the surah also plays a role in the surah. Because Omar of mahatama, he set out one day in his anger with Ebola to kill the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and then he read this surah and he read it in the house of his sister, and because of it, he embraced Islam. And so this surah touched the

00:37:09--> 00:37:52

heart of a lot of no hotpot till he became who he became. And of course, the surah also has the story of the people of Freetown, what to Lincolnshire, the the the sorcerers of Fidel how they started in the morning, then they saw the miracle and then they converted so strongly. So to Omaha Baba, we started in the morning, he saw the miracle of pseudo baja and then he converted so strongly, and it's beginning lines. It reminds us star ha mountains and radical Khurana the Tasha Taha, we did not reveal this Koran for you so that you'd be distressed so that you'd be in grief. In other words, the Koran and grief do not go hand in hand. The Quran lifts up grief, the Koran

00:37:52--> 00:38:40

dissolves your stress, we did not reveal this port on for you to cause you grief and distress The haoran is not going to cause you grief and distress, turn to the Koran and your grief will be eliminated, your stress will be dissolved. The Quran is the ultimate cure to our internal anxieties and stress. And then what follows is a solid 90 verses that is two thirds of the surah. About Musa and the journey of Musa beginning from a last conversation on Mount Sinai. And in verse 14. What is the first thing that Allah said to Moosa on Mount Sinai in any analog book that I am your Lord in any and Allahu La Ilaha, Indiana for Buddha he will claim his solitary victory, worship Me and

00:38:40--> 00:39:24

establish the sila to remember me by Subhan Allah, the first thing that the toddler Jesus utters is to pray. The first thing that Allah says to Moosa on Mount Sinai is to pray. The first thing that our Prophet system tells our that Allah tells our prophets of Allah whitey, who sent him after the revolution of Allah is to pray. And in the journey of destroying mineralogy, this is what our Lord told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself, then Allah confers the status of prophethood on Musa and He grants him these mighty miracles of the staff and of the hand coming out and being a dazzling light. And now he has this amazing miracle. And Allah says to him, go to Freetown and what

00:39:24--> 00:39:59

does Moosa do? Imagine if one of us had such supernatural powers? Imagine if we could turn a staff into a snake what would we do? We would rush out to say yes, I can conquer the world. But Moosa understands that he cannot do so without the help of Allah and so Moosa right when he's been given these massive miracles, Moosa makes a dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. All of us are aware of this drop versus 25 onwards, all rubbish rally Saturday, he said, Oh, my Lord, put my heart at ease and ease my task for me and untighten

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

Not from my tongue so that they can understand my speech and appoint for me a helper from my own family how wrong He is my brother, strengthen me with him and have him share my mission so that we may glorify you and remember you much indeed Oh Allah, you always watch over us what to comprehensive to think about this to ponder over it. And imagine subhana wa Moosa understood, despite the physical miracle that he had, what was more important was the help of a law. So even though he's given that divine miracle, the first thing that he says, Oh my Lord, make my tasks easy for me. Oh my lord, allow me to go and strengthen me. Oh my Lord, You make my heart comfortable and

00:40:42--> 00:41:23

at ease. Without Allah, his blessings, nothing happens. Even with the miracles of Musa he turned to a lot and he goes helped me along the way. Also notice what a generous heart You know, when one of us we get something, we put it in our pockets and we don't want anybody to share with all mine, I get the chocolate, I get the candy. I get the ice cream, nobody's gonna share it. So you know, that's the reality we have we just wanted for me, myself and I imagine Moosa has been made a profit, and what's the first thing on his mind? Allah? Can I share this? Can I can I bring my brother in as well? I love my brother, I want him to have this as well. So panela when you give unto others, you

00:41:23--> 00:42:06

actually increase your own share as well. Your generosity will come back to you. Moosa wanted to share and this only increased his own blessings and Allah gave him that will and Allah xojo granted him how long as a prophet as well. And moose up after this section of verses after verse 36 onwards, he is reminded of the blessings of a law from his childhood, that his mother putting them in the basket, his sister, following him, making sure that he doesn't drown for out taking him and then raising him his accidental manslaughter when he accidentally kills somebody fleeing away finding protection and madeon his entire life is summarized, in less than one verse read it, it is truly a

00:42:06--> 00:42:47

miracle how the Quran in such a beautiful language just summarizes the entire life of Moosa the goal being almost at every stage of your life, I took care of you. And through this, our Prophet system is being reminded Yasuda law, at every stage of your life, when you are an orphan, when your mother died when your father was to die when your grandfather died at every stage of your life, I took care of you, do you think I'm going to abandon you now then when you have come to all of this Omu SAP then sigma g tala cardarine yamasa. You came at the appointed time what was coddled you were supposed to meet me after going through every single one of these stages. That meeting place was

00:42:47--> 00:43:28

right here and now and everything is in accordance with my plan. Dear Muslims, obviously, none of us is prophets. But every one of our lives and every aspect of our lives is controlled by the same book that controls the lives of the prophets that own melki tab that is with Allah subhana wa Tada. So to do Muslim, every one of us in our own ways, every one of us has been protected by a law to get to where we are today. A law wanted us to be where we are right here and now so that we can then go forth and do our tasks what Allah subhana wa tada wants us to do, with the help of Allah throughout our lives, whatever has happened to us, the ups and the downs, they were meant for our betterment to

00:43:28--> 00:44:11

be right here and now so that we have the potential now to move forward and to do the tasks that Allah subhana wa tada has assigned for us, all of it is with the mother of a law. And so if you're around, Moosa is told, go to fit around it Have a look around in the hotel Hall, he has indeed acted in an arrogant manner. And then they are told from Allah Allah who didn't speak to him in a soft and gentle manner, perhaps fit around, might become mindful of a law, perhaps fear around might begin to fear Allah subhana wa Taala. And this verse has been used so many times in our classical literature, in various instances and circumstances between people that have had debates and arguments that one

00:44:11--> 00:44:53

of them always brings this first up, and it is so relevant because the best of the best and that is musette is being told to go to the worst of the worst, and that is your own, and to display, gentleness and kindness, speak to him gently, and therefore any time we go to advise another person, and honestly, it is so so sad what we see the reality and May Allah forgive some of our brethren, some of our overzealous brothers that when they learn something, right, it is right what they know. Sometimes Sometimes it's wrong what they know, but sometimes they want to present it, but the way they present it is so harsh that they turn people away from the truth, not because of the truth, but

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

because of their own harshness and arrogance. And where was that knowledge when they should benefit from the math

00:45:00--> 00:45:38

resumes of the people of knowledge, where did that knowledge come in handy when they read the Koran and Allah is telling to Moosa when you go to fit out, be gentle with fit out. Why can't a Muslim who comes to another Muslim then have even more gentleness because neither is the first person better than Moosa, nor is the second person worse than Freetown, Subhana, Allah, where did that softness and gentleness go, and I say to you do Muslims, and this is the honest truth, that the average Muslim and hamdulillah they want to be good, they want to be righteous. But one of the main reasons One of the main impediments, and it is a sheer panic, excuse me, that is not going to be accepted.

00:45:38--> 00:46:20

It's not a valid excuse, but it is truth. One of the main reasons that people are turned away from becoming a more religious is the vibe that some of them get from their version of the people of religion, the negativity, the harshness, the bad mannerisms. Sadly, sometimes a person of religion turns people away from religion, not because of the religion, but because of the manners and characteristics of this person. And so my advice to both segments of mankind, those that they assume themselves to be religious, you are never truly religious, unless it is demonstrated in your mannerisms. I swear to you don't have knowledge, if you're not humble in front of the people. This

00:46:20--> 00:46:56

means your knowledge was of no use to you, the greatest of men, the prophets of Allah, they were humble in front of the worst of people, and that is fair. So if you are not able to demonstrate that the new knowledge has failed you and then it also would advise others who see this level of perhaps arrogance or harshness, and they reject religion, I say to them separate you know, as they say that the baby from the bathwater, separate the forest from the trees, don't turn away from your Lord and your Creator. Don't turn away from the book of Allah, because of the bad manners of one or two people. That's not a valid excuse sift through, you know, what is Allah asking? And what maybe a

00:46:56--> 00:47:39

person you know might be, might be portraying, which is not a valid portrayal of the faith. Back to our story, though, but it is important because it goes back to this issue of Moses gentleness to fit our back to our story that the story of the magician's is now told in a lot of detail and look at how quickly the magicians they embrace Islam and how strong their Eman becomes in verse 72, when Pharaoh threatens to kill them to torture them to death to crucify them. Sharon says I'm going to chop off your hands and legs from opposite sides. I'm going to mutilate you while you're alive and hang your bodies while you're alive from the crucifixes I'm going to put them on on date palms too,

00:47:39--> 00:48:24

so that you die is slow and miserable death. Verse 72, called New lender hirakata merger and m&a bayonet, we are not going to prefer you over these evidences that Allah has given to us that the one who created us we will choose him over you supple the mantle of do as you pleased to do you only rule this world you don't rule the next world we have believed in our Lord so that he may forgive our sins and He may forgive this sorcery that you forced upon us. And indeed Allah is better and more lasting than Allah subhana wa tada mentions. Whoever comes to his Lord guilty, that person shall be punished in jahannam, where she shall neither live nor die. But whoever comes to Allah as a

00:48:24--> 00:49:09

believer having worked righteous deeds, that is the person who shall have the highest strengths, Jana to either in gardens of perpetuity, beneath which rivers flow dwelling there and forever, that is indeed the reward for those who purify themselves. And as I said the surah has a profound impact on orbital hopper. It is as if we see the exact same verses that had the impact on fit out on the magician's of fit out. We see the same thing in the life of our halifa mahapatra de la one, that within just reciting the surah it caused his Eman to go from one second to one to kill the Prophet system to then become the greatest of the great after a walk a severe and Subhanallah This is the

00:49:09--> 00:49:52

strength of Eman when it comes in the heart. So the law then goes on and it mentions in the only place in the whole Koran This is the only time it occurs. The story of Assam at the story of Assam idi and Assam idi, he was an evil religious leader. Some say he was even a rabbi, meaning of religious clergy type from the time of Musa and how long who saw an opportunity to gain power. And he most likely read the story in the Quran. Most likely he saw Djibouti go by maybe even with the horse of Jubilee, and he took some remnants from the footsteps of God. And he then used it to cause

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

the the golden calf to make some sound as if it was alive. And so he then did

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

To the people of Israel, the children of Israel to worship the golden calf instead of Allah subhana wa tada and he became the chief rabbi of the of that Cult of the golden calf. And the main lesson that I want to extract much can be said the main lesson I want to extract and it is a terrifying one dear Muslims, and I've already referenced this in a little bit in the past, that we seek Allah's refuge from evil people of knowledge because they represent a very, very dangerous category we seek Allah's refuge Oh the villa that I am ever amongst them or any of us has ever amongst them were ever influenced by them. But there is a category of people as samedi is their leader, that type of

00:50:40--> 00:51:25

persona, who will literally sell their Acura for the sake of this dunya with a villa with a villa we seek Allah's refuge, they will sell themselves for a measly profit, they will sell their religiosity to the highest bidder in the case of a samedi that bitter was famed was a cultish following to have people come up to him. In the case of others, it might be money, it might be acquiescence to a dictator, to a tyrant, it might be power, it might be wealth, whatever it might be, but there is a small category or the villa with Nicolas refuge of people of knowledge people who are associated with him, that are the villa, they are misguiding under the garb of piety and therefore, I need to

00:51:25--> 00:52:09

be very explicit here dear Muslims, anytime a person of the religion is not calling to Allah and His Messenger, but calling to himself, beware of that person. Our religion is not based upon cultish personalities, our religion is based upon Allah subhanho wa Taala. the worship of a law based upon the sin of the messenger of a law, the job and the role of an alum of a teacher of a chef is to connect you to a law to the Koran to the center, the job of a person of knowledge is so that you are inspired to be a better person worshipping Allah subhana wa tada and loving the messenger and the scholar who create who is creating a personality cult around himself and demands unquestioned

00:52:09--> 00:52:51

loyalty and acquiescence and cultish following be aware of that person. Be aware of that person be aware of that person, the true scholar humbles himself so that the goal is not the scholar the goal becomes the religion. The goal becomes connecting the people with the religion in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and don't follow those scholars that are following Assam at a samedi wanted to become his own cultish following and the people follow Him and so Allah punished him in this world. And Moosa says in Surah Taha and what is going to be punished in the in the Hereafter is even more than this. The surah then moves on to some of the most powerful eye opening verses about the

00:52:51--> 00:53:34

Day of Judgment, verse 103, onwards that people presume that they've only lived for five days or 10 days. And the Quran says that, in fact, some people will swear to a law that they've only lived for one day, meaning when they come on the Day of Judgment, and they will see that their whole lives has had been spent with doing nothing and they're coming empty handed, they haven't done enough good deeds to show they will then deny that how could they have had a solid 6070 8090 years How could they have lived so long and done so little? So they will argue with a law that Oh, law, we only have been given 10 days or even one day you didn't give us enough time. And so we don't want to be

00:53:34--> 00:54:16

amongst those people take advantage of your time study for the exam on the final day, so that in shallow data, we pass it with flying colors, and the this section is very powerful. That verse 108 onwards, on that day, you have to be Runa di or they're going to follow the color without any deviation wherever the color goes, whether it is to gender or jahannam. And on that day will hush it or swallow too little human voices will be hushed in front of a man and you will hear nothing except the murmuring. On that day. No intercession will be accepted unless a law has allowed and faces will be humbled in front of the EverLiving The higher the volume, why the till we do high yield to you,

00:54:17--> 00:54:59

and whoever does righteous deeds while being a believer, that is the person who shall fear nothing, and shall have nothing to grieve. And how does one get to that stage? Verse 113, by reading the Koran and by asking Allah for no more knowledge, verse 114. We'll call the ROB Bz Dini, in how does one protect oneself from all of those punishments through the Koran and through the knowledge that comes from the Koran. And so we ask Allah for Quranic knowledge and we ask Allah for knowledge of the religion will rob Bz Dini in this is one of the Quran in two hours that our Prophet sallallahu wasallam has been commanded to make throughout his life and so make sure we memorize this to ask

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

And we say it over and over again. The story concludes, once again with the story of Adam. And at least once again it is mentioned. And this time we are told a very interesting point that when Adam is coming down, Allah makes an announcement, verse 123, that they shall come guidance from time to time. So whoever follows my guidance, that person shall never go astray, nor shall they suffer, and the one who turns away from my guidance, that person shall live a miserable life, and then be resurrected on the Day of Judgment blind. Notice here, the one who follows guidance shall not suffer in this world, meaning spiritually, they're going to be good. And the one who turns away from

00:55:44--> 00:56:26

guidance shall have a miserable life in this world. Notice one of the main messages of the Quran that unfortunately many of our Muslims, brothers and sisters don't understand is that peace will only come through religion, happiness, contentment of life. contentment does not come from worldly possessions. It doesn't come from how much you own. ask anybody who owns more than you do. Ask the millionaire, the millionaire, ask the billionaire, the billionaire, ask the multibillionaire doesn't matter how much you own. inner happiness is not found in external positions or possessions it comes from within. And a law says how do you get it from any tablao budaya whoever follows my guidance

00:56:26--> 00:57:08

shall be at peace, whoever turns away from my guidance shall live a miserable life, and the sooner concludes by consoling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam against the rejection of his own people, and commanding him to seek refuge in a law and in the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Once again, this linkage is very common, it's going to hurt you what they're saying. So what should you do so turn to Allah be a role model to your own family, command your family to pray, what more Lakota Salatu was started Allah. This isn't Surah Taha that Yasuda la as well tell your family to pray as well not just you look at the prayer, how many times it has come up and make sure that you

00:57:08--> 00:57:49

are patient in that command. You know, it's difficult brothers and sisters we all know telling your children telling your teenage children to pray, it's a never ending job. My advice to myself and all of you remember this verse, what more alaka decide it was a bad idea. Be extra patient notice unless as well study or not even was was started means extra patient. It is so difficult to always remind always after while you feel like giving up, guess what, never give up, never give up even if it's just for the sake of Allah that Allah I tried. Never lose hope be a role model to your family, your cousins, your relatives in a gentle manner in a wise manner. As we said never be harsh but at the

00:57:49--> 00:58:15

same time. Try your best to influence people to be of those who regularly pray because that is the ultimate way that we will reconnect with Allah subhanho wa Taala and with this we come to the conclusion of sort of Maria ansarullah baja and inshallah Tada. Tomorrow we will be doing the next juice to that ambia and sort of hedge I will see you then until then Chuck moolah, head on said I'm wanting to like wabarakatuh
