00:10:05--> 00:10:50

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu to Allah belongs praise in the heavens and on earth and from the beginning until the end, he created the heavens and earth in six days. And then over the throne did he ascent he is the Eternally Besought of all and the entire creation upon him does depend. He alone provides our sustenance and our sicknesses and wounds does Him and He created us and then guided us, revealing to us a book that we may comprehend, and also a noble prophet from Mecca of the children of Abraham did he send today inshallah to Allah will be doing so that Allah has ARB and Saba and felted. And we began with so that Allah has up so that Allah has up is a Madani

00:10:50--> 00:11:33

surah It's been a while since we've done a Madani surah and it is a relatively mid size, sort of 10 pages, half pages 73 verses, and the reason why it is called sorbitol as up as a means the Confederate Army, it means that groups of different people that have come together for a common cause nothing united them internally, except their opposition to Islam externally. So the Azov is the name given to the largest army that Arabian history had ever seen in its history, up until that point in time, and the purpose of that army over 10,000 strong from many different groups, the Qureshi were in charge, but you had a lot of fun, you had entire large segments of the Arabian

00:11:33--> 00:12:14

Peninsula coming together so that they could get rid of Islam once and for all. And they marched on Medina and there was no way that the Muslims could fight 10,000 people you know, there were probably around 1500 men that were in Medina at the time. And so they were besieged by for around a month. And of course, the details of this the details of the Battle of the trench, where the Battle of Izod are beyond the scope of of today's lecture, you can listen to that in the Sierra, but the story or the sutra was revealed because of the incident of the Izod and because of Allah subhanho wa Taala his victory that he gave to the Muslims that is referenced explicitly in this surah and remember

00:12:14--> 00:12:54

that the Muslims were locked down for around a month internally and surrounded by the zap externally and then there was the potential the rumors began to spread that de Bono corredor one of the local tribes had defected over to the side of the garage, and they were going to betray from within and they were going to simultaneously launch an attack from within and the courage from without, and that would have really been a complete disaster. But then Allah subhana wa tada intervened, and it was one of the greatest miracles that the Muslims themselves witnessed. And so Allah subhana wa tada References This first number nine that Yeah, you were living in Morocco number two la la comunidad

00:12:54--> 00:13:35

Camino del Sol Sana la hembree han what you do with lm zero, how are you who believe remember Alice favors on you, when the forces came and armies came to attack you and we sent a wind and we sent forces that you could not see. And indeed Allah is aware of all that you do. When they came to you from above you and from beneath you in other words from all sides when they came to from above you in front beneath you, and the eyes became glazed, and the hearts reached the throat and people began harboring evil thoughts about a lot look at how the Quran is describing how frightened some of the people were. What's aluna Bella Luna? People began thinking thoughts that how can a lot abandon us

00:13:35--> 00:14:15

here, this is the hypocrites here. Then Allah says who Nautica to leave me noon. This is where the believers were tested was z Luzon and shaida. And they were shaken to the very core. Imagine for over a month, the hunger, the supplies are dwindling. They don't even have food to eat. Their families are in terror. There's an internal enemy of the bundle for ADA, there's an external threat, there is going to be no other hope no other army they're the only Muslims in the world what is going to happen and the days go on and the weeks go on? And so people the hypocrites began spreading fear and causing more chaos within the ranks of the Muslims and Allah subhanho wa Taala then praises the

00:14:15--> 00:14:53

Muslims as well and he contrasts the Muslims with the hypocrites. So a lot of the story deals with the hypocrites as well. For example, Allah says about the hypocrites that verse number 13 that with piloti Fetterman homea Allah Yes, Riba la mahkamah confer juru. And when a group of the hypocrites said Oh, people have yesterday, notice they're still calling it the jahi named Muslims should not call Medina yesterday, but Allah is describing them in this subtle fashion that they're the oldest school they want to be in the days of Jehovah or people of yesterday, you're not going to win against this. So withdraw. So with with so go back to your houses and fleet and the group amongst

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

them. They try to make an excuse from the profits of the law, why you send them and they said, NW, turn our turn warmer here. Be our

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

They said, our houses are exposed. We need to protect our wives and children. And the law says that wasn't the real excuse. their houses were not exposed. And they only wanted to run away. Verse number 14. And if the enemy had invaded from all sides, and they were asked to abandon their faith, they would have willingly abandoned their faith, they would have embraced gopher. In other words, they're not really worried about Eman and Cofer to them. Life is life of this world he might incur for secondary things that didn't really matter. When power was for Islam. They embraced Islam. And then when power began to waver, their hearts began to waver as well. No dear brothers and sisters,

00:15:37--> 00:16:18

truth is independent of political strength. Sometimes the Muslims are strong, sometimes they're going to be weak truth is independent of that. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the vacillating nature of the hypocrites. Contrast this and by the way, a lot of verses in the suta read verses 57 to 60 where Allah subhanho wa Taala literally says melaku Nina a number 34 What a sad state of affairs they are a cursed wherever they go, wherever they go, they occur so Allah azza wa jal senses Lana on the hypocrites, contrast this to the believers, the Mothman, those who firmly believed in the promise of a law and then the promise of the messenger, verse number 22, when Mr.

00:16:18--> 00:17:03

meanor azova, when the McMahons saw the Confederate Army when they saw this massive crowd coming, rather than fleeing, rather than vacillating and wavering, they said, How? Why don't Allahu Allah sudo This is what a lot in the messenger have promised us, while sada Kala and other and they have told us the truth, one as their home in Yemen and what is Lima and it only increased them in their faith and in their submission and certainty when they saw the danger around them. They said this is the test Allah promised us and they're a man in a law went even higher. And this shows us a times of stress at times of danger. At times of anxiety, we need to strengthen our resolve by turning to

00:17:03--> 00:17:44

Allah look at what Allah azza wa jal says that their Eman went up one masado illa Eamon and their email went up at times of danger that's when we need a man the most even though we need a man of all times, but especially when the situation is difficult. And this is why Allah praises the believers verse number 23 mineral meanie lidija rune sada una hora de la la there are those amongst the believers, they fulfill their promises to Allah. They promised Allah something and they fulfill that promise. Some of them have fulfilled it completely. And this means they have been made Shaheed they're they're passed away, and others are still waiting and they're not going to waver. And Allah

00:17:44--> 00:18:26

xojo praises the believers and contrast them to the hypocrites. Verse number 36 will knock on any movement in one minute in either cabo la huella Zulu Amman, Enya cornella Humala, here are two men and marry him. It is not befitting it's not possible, it's not conceivable for a believing man or a believing woman. Once Allah and His Messenger have undertaken a decision that they then choose their decision above the decision of a law or His Messenger, and just like it apply to an explicit commandment of a political nature back then. So true, it applies to an ethical or moral issue of today. Once Allah and His Messenger have decided something, you need to choose whether you're a

00:18:26--> 00:19:05

movement or not, if you're a movement, then you must submit. If you're not a movement, then you make your choice and you face the consequences. It's that simple. One can look at how Allah phrased it, it's not possible for a minute or a minute, once Allah and His Messenger have made a decision that they then follow something else in that matter. Now again, the following here is not to sin, meaning that what is being referenced here is your paradigm, your frame of mind, what is being referenced, here are your ideals and your goals. It is definitely possible for the woman to commit a sin but the woman commits a sin and he knows it is a sin. He knows deep down inside this is wrong. What Allah is

00:19:05--> 00:19:49

saying, it is not possible for the movement or movement to change right and wrong in their paradigm and to think that the right is wrong, and the wrong is right. That is never possible. The moment does commit sins and then repents to a law and asks a laws, forgiveness. And so when a lot praise the believers criticize the hypocrites, when Allah azzawajal mentioned that the moment the believers turned to Allah subhana wa Tada, they said has been a law they turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala verse number 25. Eliza Jen says what kefa law will mean in Alcatel, what a powerful verse here and Allah to care of fighting on your behalf, Allah fought on your behalf, what kind of low cohesion as these

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

allies all powerful and all mighty? Can you believe that the largest army ever gathered in the history of Arabia up until that point in time, obviously, the

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

Muslim armies afterwards we get bigger and bigger. But up until that point in time, it was the largest army. Can you believe the Muslims did not have a battle with that army? A law took care of that army directly How so? As we already referenced Allah subhanho wa Taala sent a thunderstorm imagine a hurricane in the sandstorms of the desert, and the sand went everywhere and the wind took everything and they went to sleep at night with the winds howling and the Sahaba woke up. And in the morning, there was no wear and no one to be seen. So panela as Allah says, I took care of the battle for you woke up Allahu menina Alcatel How can a level Korean Aziza and look again and I mentioned

00:20:45--> 00:21:25

this a few days ago in the story of Musa when Allah says I throw them into the ocean here Allah says I took care of them for you Subhana Allah the power of the Quran, the language when Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks Who else can say this in such a way we can call it a blahs a attitude that if anybody else did it, but it is Allah subhana wa tada and he has every right to say I took care of them for you worker for low meaning located. What can Allahu alayhi Yun Aziza one of the themes of the suta as well actually throughout the entire surah. One of the whole main themes as soon as I remember it came down in the fifth year of the hijra, is the status of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:21:25--> 00:22:06

wa sallam, and also the status of his family of his wives and the domestic issues. And there are some laws as well about the personal lives of the Prophet sallallahu. Either he was sending them, and this sort of comes down as well, during the time of some marital tensions, between the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And our mothers, and I have mentioned this story in a lot more detail in my Sierra episodes, you can listen to them there. And I mentioned over there, that truly, we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala, that he sent us a prophet that is fully human, that he sent us a prophet that had minor issues minor, you know, arguments back and forth between our mothers and him so that

00:22:06--> 00:22:41

we actually have a role model. Can you imagine? Can you imagine if our Prophet sallallahu Sooners marriage if Allah wanted to, he could have made them perfect. If Allah 122 they would never have been an issue. But then what would have been the role model, there is no marriage on Earth, except that it has its ups and it's downs. The goal, of course, is to have far more ups and downs. Right? The goal is that the marriage is overall healthy Alhamdulillah and that's the goal of all of us. The prophets listener as well had a few for a few downs and issues here and there. And in those there are so many lessons and wisdoms for us and in this particular issue of certainly

00:22:43--> 00:23:24

by the fifth year of the higit. Obviously, the economic circumstances are changing. The Muslim community is increasing in its wealth, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam now has access to a lot more wealth than he used to, obviously in Mecca, or even in early Medina. And so some of our mothers that and they have every right to do this, they began to ask for a better lifestyle, a larger, you know, house and whatnot, they wanted to have a better lifestyle, and it is human nature. And it is completely permissible, dear Muslims completely permissible for a Muslim or Muslim have to live within his or her means if the means are, hello, that's all permissible, whatever your

00:23:24--> 00:24:09

permissible income is, you live a lifestyle in accordance with that. However, our Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, he was sent them is not like any of us, he is not like any of us, He is the ultimate role model for all of humanity. And it would not be be fitting for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu it who was sending them to live in a lavish mansion to have, you know, servants, it would not be befitting and it would make you know, people's tongues wag and whatnot and what and it's not him, it's not who he is, as a human being ascetic, simple person. So when our brothers wanted what and they had every right to ask, so our Profit System felt tension and he withdrew for an entire month

00:24:09--> 00:24:47

he slept in the masjid and I went over this in my Cyril lectures in more detail, you can listen to this and I mentioned there as well by the way, that dear husbands if you have an issue with your spouse's with your wives, if you have a problem with them, and it's sometimes it does happen, that you get angry and whatnot Subhanallah it is the husband who leaves and the wife stays and never ever will. The below the brother is the wife kicked out, never husbands act like men, even issues of dispute and anger be gentlemen to your wives, if there's an issue and sometimes it happens anger flares and whatnot. Be a gentleman and you leave for a while. Never ever take an innocent woman and

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

and put her in a circumstance that is not befitting put her outside never do that. This is something that man if he gets angry, he goes sleeps in the in the living room or worse than this he goes to the masjid as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:25:00--> 00:25:40

Did he slept an entire month in the masjid? Then Allah subhana wa tada revealed verse number 28 in the hold on and in what a beautiful verse yeah you have to be you only as logic say oh prophet to your wives in Quintanilla traditional higher to dunya was enough to her if you want this world and the beauty of this world Fatah Elaine come I shall give you a material conda whoa sir goodness Allah Han jameelah I will give you till you are happy and then I will let you go in a beautiful manner look even it wasn't even the word divorce was not even mentioned. It wasn't even hinted at there was no threat of divorce. It's a simple statement. You want this dunya You know what, okay, fine. Here

00:25:40--> 00:25:49

is it I'll give you a nice gift. And then you go your way and I'll go my way was Sarah, Sarah and Jamila were in Clinton to return a la hora Sula, who was

00:25:50--> 00:26:31

here for Enola her adult it works in it when he Ronaldinho but if you choose a law and you choose the Messenger of Allah, then in that case you will get the down arrow you will get the abode of the hereafter and Allah subhana wa tada has promised for you the righteous amongst you a magnificent reward. Look what a beautiful gift here at verses 2829 you make the choice that the profitsystem is not like the ordinary person. He cannot live the lifestyle that you're asking for. He This is going to be his simplicity and the subtitle I look at this as well. If he wanted to, he could have lived the most lavish lifestyle. Everybody would have not even blinked an eyelid his followers. We mean

00:26:31--> 00:27:07

the Muslims, nobody would have cared. He is the Rasulullah sallallahu it was sent him or might have been a hot dog was crying it was in this incident would not have came down or whatever the last one was crying. He said he Otto Sula, la the emperors of Roman Persia, look at their houses, look at their palaces and you don't even have a soft mattress to lay down on and our refusal Allahu Allahu wa sallam said, don't you don't you? Are Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Omar, do you really mind or matter that they have been given this dunya and we have been given the al Qaeda so Pamela, this is where our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is heading he wants the architect.

00:27:07--> 00:27:44

He's not interested in this world. Are you not satisfied or more that they have been given this world and we have been given the era. So this was that incident, what I'm going to talk about the old one, he he made that that emotional statement. And a lot as the wizard then revealed this verse, yada sutala offer your wives, they want this world Bismillah or if they want the accurate, they can stay with you. And every one of our mothers, they stayed with our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is one our mothers are also told verse number 32. Our mothers are also told that Jani said and Debbie, or wives of the Prophet les to make it mean and Lisa, you are not like any

00:27:44--> 00:28:25

other lady, you're not that you're married to somebody who is at a pseudo law system, you cannot consider yourself like other women, you are not like other ladies out there. So if you are pious and of course, here's the condition here is that Allah is saying, of course, you are pious, if you are pious, then do not speak in a soft tone, so that the hearts of those who are evil, they might think evil thoughts, but rather speak in an appropriate manner. wakulla Holden, meroofer Subhana. Allah, imagine our mothers are being told our mothers are being told that when you speak, then speak in a manner that nobody might read in something so Subhanallah if this is the case, with our mothers, and

00:28:25--> 00:29:04

I swear to you, any male amongst us, any male, you cannot even think of the below the below you think of our mother is your mother Khadija, and your heart is full of motherly like this is our mother. Yet Allah is saying to them, that when you speak to other men, then speak in a manner that is not going to cause anybody who has a disease in the heart to read in something. So if this is the Paragon, if this is the paradigm, if this is the standard that they have been given, then what do you think anybody else after them, and Subhanallah It is as if Allah subhana wa tada is, is indicating that you know, those men who are not fully pious panela, they will read in anything, if a

00:29:04--> 00:29:41

sister blinks, they're going to think that that lady's flirting with them. So Pamela, this is how some men are and I'm not justifying are not justified. I'm simply stating this as a fact that Allah Himself is indicating here that someone as righteous as our mothers, someone as a group, as righteous as them, that Allah is telling them speak in a dignified manner. And don't speak in a softer in a in a way that might bring about, you know, temptations or whatnot are people who have a disease in their heart. And notice Allah does call that they have a disease in their heart. But there are men like this. And sometimes there are many much percentage so we need to monitor both

00:29:41--> 00:30:00

sides of it. And each gender has to do its job. And so Allah says to them, we'll call them Effie BeautyCon and remain in your houses while that's about Rajini. terbaru Jia Jia helia Tula and do not display yourselves like the women of the jelly would display themselves meaning in immodest clothing, and Allah says a lot

00:30:00--> 00:30:44

wants to purify you, LL Beatty, and make sure that you are purified thoroughly. This verse, verse 33, is explicit that lol bait is inclusive of the mothers of the believers. Anybody who says otherwise has clearly not even read the Quran with an open mind. Yes indeed, the Office of the Los Alamos children are his lol bait and his daughters are little bait and his grandchildren are a little bait. But our mothers are also a Hillel bait by the text of the Koran and verse 59. The Prophet system is advised that the EBU or prophet tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers tell all of them and you need it, you need it hindlimb Angelababy him that they

00:30:44--> 00:31:28

should draw their cloaks over themselves that is more appropriate so that they may be recognized meaning as virtuous ladies and therefore not harassed, and indeed a lot is forgiving, and merciful. This is verse 59. of Sudan as a pair this together with the verse we did in Sudan, a note that talked about as well the issue of the Highmark, these two verses are all that you need to get from the Quran. The Quranic paradigm of feminine modesty in Surah, a nor we learned that women should cover him out over their bosoms, which is the hair and the bosom area. And in this ayah, we are explicitly told that they should wear loose covering and loose garment, preferably a separate

00:31:28--> 00:32:08

garment on top, but even if it's not separate, but the point is, there should be something that is loose. That's the whole point, oh, you'd need Ali hindlimb Angelababy him that it should not be tight. And these are the two main conditions that the entire body of the woman be covered. And again, this is explicit in the Koran and notice your ally saying that, and you're often a fella you then so that they should not be intimidated or harassed. And again, there is no justification for any man to say or do anything inappropriate. At the same time. both genders need to do their job as well. And just like we take precautions for anything, so we take reasonable precautions in this

00:32:08--> 00:32:47

issue as well. And a lot is indicating here. It is an indication that has caught on it is not coming from me and I know this is sensitive but this is the Quran and I am teaching you the Quran if if you find this problematic, then it is not my speech or of finding problematic keep that in mind. Allah is explicitly stating that if a person is not wearing appropriate clothing, it is more likely that they will be harassed. It is not a justification of the harassment, number one, number two, it there is no indication that if you wear hijab, you will not be harassed. Of course, you can still be harassed with a job, there are still bad people out there doesn't matter, but we do our job and we

00:32:47--> 00:33:26

leave the rest to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And a part of reasonable precautions is we dress modestly and we act modestly and we act with decency and we dress with decency, this is very much Quranic. Now if after all of this somebody still does something wrong, the sin is definitely on them. And even if a person dresses immodestly that does not in any sense fashion or form justify another person perpetrating violence or something negative. That's a sin. But that doesn't negate that the first party as well should do something as much as possible. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada for Yvonne and taqwa and I know it's difficult in this day and age, we're all struggling in our own

00:33:26--> 00:34:12

ways. I asked Eliza which to make it easy for all of us. But the point is, it is in the Quran. And it is very explicit, oh Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and all the women of the believers. This, the next verse, verse 35, in the surah, it is one of the most explicit verses about gender equity in the entire Koran, I have said multiple times that it is explicit from the Quranic message that men and women are spiritually equal in the eyes of a law, they are equal their value as a human being, their value as a servant of a law is equal. And that is the real equality, any other type of equality. It is, frankly, a figment of one's own imagination, and it doesn't actually exist

00:34:12--> 00:34:49

in the real world, despite what people might say in the real world psychologically, emotionally, genders treat each other differently even in the confines of marriage and that's a separate topic altogether. My point is that the real equality which is the equality that is Quranic is spiritual equality after this men and women are different physically and physiologically, but spiritually verse number 35, read this verse in the Muslim in our Muslim it will mean in our Minato Connie Tina will kanita to Sakina saw the quality will harsher animal partiality, all the way to the end, believing men and women, Muslim men and women, obedient men and women, truthful men and women,

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

patient, men and women, humble men and women, charitable men and women fasting many women, chaste men and women. Many women who do they could have Allah subhanho wa Taala for all

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

Have them Allah has promised a pardon and an immense reward. So this ayah verse 35, of surah tele HAZOP is one of the most important verses about gender equity. Also the surah came down with the issue of the marriage of Zainab Binti. Josh, this is verse number 37. And this is one of the stories of the Sierra that I cannot go over over here. It's a very long story, but it is one of the verses I shouldn't be allowed. One has said well, the other one is she said, if our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. were to have hidden anything from the Koran, it would have been this verse. The fact that it is in the Koran demonstrates that the Quran is not from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:35:41--> 00:36:24

he is conveying it, as it has been conveyed to him. And of course, the story is the story of the marriage of our prophets of Allah who are dealing with Xena, and Xena was married to his the person who had taken as a son announced that he was his son. And that is they they've been had it. And this sort of came down to a note the concept of this type of sonship in Arabic is called Tibetan. Neat. And they've been How did that was taken as a son. And this was an Arabian custom and ancient custom that if you really liked somebody, and you wanted him to be part of your family, you had the option of a free upgrade. You had the option of saying, Okay, this person, he is my son. And so, the

00:36:24--> 00:37:03

prophet system in the days of Jamelia, he had taken this young lad Zaid, he was of course Khadija his gift at the time of marriage as a slave, he freed him, and then he loved him so much he made him into a son. And so his aid was called a they've been Warhammer for the longest time. Then Allah revealed sort of that verse for that. One magic Adria, Urbina, accom, he did not make your too many sons, into your actual sons. And verse number five, call them by their fathers or their only Abba him, don't call them you know, by anybody else, every child should be the son of whoever his father was. That is more just in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And by the way, whoever translated

00:37:03--> 00:37:45

these concepts back in the 60s or 70s, they made a very egregious error of saying that Islam forbids adoption. And because of this, untold misunderstandings and misconceptions have spread. And I sometimes want to scream in frustration. Islam encourages adoption, in the standard sense of taking somebody's child and raising it, and loving it like your own and giving the amenities like your own. What is how long is one aspect, which by and large is not done in the Western world, or even in the modern world, and that is the claim that this child is your biological child, that's not done anymore. It's a God thing. So we should stop saying that Islam does not allow adoption, Islam

00:37:45--> 00:38:21

encourages to the highest degree, you taking an orphan child where you're taking an abandoned child, somebody who's abandoned the child, Islam encourages this to the highest degree, your agenda is promised, you're being saved from jahannam. Our Prophet system said that myself and the one who takes care of an orphan is like this, engender, this is what we should be preaching. We should never say that Islam does not allow adoption because people have the misunderstanding, Islam does not allow Tibetan need and Tibetan need is to claim that a child is your own. That is what is not allowed. So this idea came down and so they began to be causative in Hadith. And Allah azza wa jal

00:38:21--> 00:39:00

also revealed in this surah that they then of course, they know we're having issues and they eventually divorced, Xena and then Allah subhana wa tada after they had finished Allah subhana wa tada revealed this verse, verse number 37, that once they had finished with her meaning there It has been finished, zil, wodgina kaha that we have married you to her. So the contract between our Prophet system and Xena, it is in the Quran. There was no actual ceremony done because it is in the Koran. And you can look up the details of this and my Sierra or any other book of seal about this issue, this disorder as well. It has this sub motif we talked about the family of the Prophet

00:39:00--> 00:39:40

sallallahu. I sent him for personal issues. It also has the status of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, many verses about his status and about obedience to Him. For example, verse 14, that mark Anna Mohammedan ahora de Maria de como la karasuno, la halterman narrabeen Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not the father of any of your men, you know, the Arabs would think that a person who doesn't have a son, there's something wrong with him. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala took that negative and he converted it into a positive and he said, so what if he doesn't have sons, he's not going to have sons that live to adulthood. He did have sons who passed away in childhood, and that's

00:39:40--> 00:39:59

what Allah says, He is not the father of any of your men. He did not say of any of your boys because he did have boys, but he would never have men as sons. Meaning they didn't grow up. Why not kill Rasul Allah but he is better than this. He is a rasulillah and he is the seal of the prophets hartham and nibi. And indeed Allah

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

have everything and then verses 41 onwards is a very oft recited verses in the Sunnah, that you will live in America logic Ron kathira was a book written while sila who will lead you suddenly aleikum wa

00:40:13--> 00:40:51

rahmatullah know what can I be meaning rahima to hear to whom yo male Kona who Salam What are the odds are on Karima that glorify Him praise Him morning and evening. He is the one who reaches out to him and his angels to bring you out of the darkness and into the light and he has ever Merciful towards the believers, the day that they shall meet Allah. Allah will say Salaam to them. May Allah make us amongst those whom he says salam to and he has prepared for them a generous reward. Yeah, you have never you Oh, prophet in Seneca Shah hidden when we were sure on one or the other? Or was it alive either knew who was here, Raja monniera look at how many descriptions over here that old

00:40:51--> 00:41:36

messenger we have sent you as a witness, as a bearer of good news, as a warner as a caller by the permission of a law and as an illuminating light and give the believers the good news that for them there is a great reward. And of course in suit at Alaska, you have that one verse that is recited in every single hotel and it is recited in every single lecture and it is acted upon by billions and billions of people every single day so many times verse number 56 in the law, her one Mother ekata who use aluna Allah nebby Yeah, you are reading Armand or Soylu IE he was suddenly motus Lima OH, you who believe that that ally saying that a lot and the angels they send their blessings upon the

00:41:36--> 00:42:15

prophets of Allah, why do we send them to you who believe you as well send blessings upon him and greet him with the prayers of peace. So we send our Sadat and our Salaam upon the one whom Allah and the angels also send their Sadat under Salaam, upon and I have given holds about the concept of salatu salam? And what does it mean? And what is the difference between ourselves and the angel sit down and ally set up. And that is a longer topic that you can look up. And this sort of concludes by bringing us back to the Day of Judgment, and telling them telling the people that no one knows the day of judgment, except for a lots of data, and that, that on the Day of Judgment, there will be

00:42:15--> 00:42:58

people that they will say to Allah subhana wa tada and Aparna said that and our Cobra and Eduardo Luna sebelah, that Hola, we follow these leaders and these noble men that we consider to be right, they're the ones who lead us astray that are gonna add to him, either be that or Lord, give them the double punishment, and send extra land upon them. So once again, we get to this issue of Who do you look up to? Who do you really look up to Who are your role models, because over and over again, the Quran is saying, if you have bad role models, they will lead you astray. And then the surah concludes with a very, very powerful verse that so much commentary has been given on. And it is

00:42:58--> 00:43:40

about the issue of Allah saying that in an ordinate amount of data, somehow it will be valuable, that we gave the option of the Amanda and Amanda, here is the trust, we gave this trust to the heavens and to the earth, and to the mountains. And all of them said, we don't want this Amanda. And man said, we'll take it. And Allah says, Man was foolish, one woman here should be treated as foolish, and Joe hula, and he made me towards the rights of a large zoologist that he didn't live up to the rights of a lot. And this What does it mean that the Amana was given to all of the creation, and they all turned it down. And man said we will take it, there's a lot of interpretation in the

00:43:40--> 00:44:21

classical books. But in the in a nutshell, what this means is that the issue of tech leaf or legal responsibility, the issue of us being the the leader of the creation, that we are the highest in the hierarchy, the issue of the revelation coming to us of heroin and heroin being sent upon us of the profits being sent to us. The whole issue of us being cognizant and aware, the issue of us having been given all of these blessings, that it was a blessing, it's an Amanda and Amanda here that just like we have been gifted something, well, then we will have to then make sure we fulfill our obligations. And so the some of the books of Tafseer say that the heavens and the earth and the

00:44:21--> 00:44:55

creation, every other entity was asked that look, if you want I can make you give you this position. And if you are pious, you shall get gender. And if you're not pious, well, then it's the other place. So there's a lot of privilege in this world and with privilege the potential to go the agenda, but also the dangers of going to jahannam that is the Amana and all of the creations that you know what we'd rather just be the creation and just you know, exist and the non exist because you know, the other creations, the rocks, the stones, the trees are not going to be transferred to gender or gender. They're just going to live in and that's it. So they said that's good enough for

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

us. And man agreed it was a volunteer thing. We don't

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

Remember this, we don't know this, but all of us were offered this, Adam, our Father, and all of us were offered. And we happily agree to this. And then here we are. And now Allah subhanho wa Taala will then tell us it is your responsibility. So now live up to that responsibility. And that's a very deep verse with obviously a lot of theological implications which are beyond the scope of today's lecture. So we move on now. The next verse we're going to the next chapter we're going to do is Surah Sabbath. And so the Sabbath is a Moroccan surah, mid makansutra, probably the sixth to seventh year of the Dawa, and it's smaller sooner than seven pages, and it is 54 verses. And the

00:45:37--> 00:46:21

main theme or one of the main themes of surah Salah is the power of a law, fireproofing, the resurrection. So keep this point in mind as you read this surah and the Sabbath in English we call it Sheba the Queen of Sheba or Shiva Subbu. Subbu is a lander province in the country of Yemen. It is one of the provinces of Yemen. Its main city was and remains mera, which is a famous city in Yemen, and the civilization of Sheba. By the way, the bill case was the Queen of Sheba. And so Saba is the dynasty of the Queen of Sheba, which we talked about, when we did the story of Solomon, and the dynasty or the Queen of Sheba, or the civilization of Sheba, it was the greatest civilization of

00:46:21--> 00:47:09

that timeframe. And we were talking about maybe around 2000 bc or so. So this is after the time of Sulayman. by a few generations, Allah is mentioning this, this incident of cyber, and they lived in the city of Arab, and there was a massive lake or a massive body of water. And they were one of the first civilizations to construct a dam to block that water and to utilize that water that would come and they built a magnificent city that lasted many generations at the base of the dam, you can see where this is going to go. And so the dam burst in a very famous historic incident. When rain fell in a particular wet wet season, sale item, it is called it is a historic incident and it is

00:47:09--> 00:47:45

referenced in the Koran. So Allah says we sent the sale that item is in the foreign here. So it didn't just happen by fluke, nothing happens by fluke, dear Muslims, anything that is happening, there is a loss other keep that in mind. When you look at what's happening right now there is a wisdom there is a reason. So Allah is saying we are the ones who sent say that as we're going to come to so this is the background of the Surah Surah Saba begins with Alhamdulillah that Allah azzawajal begins with Alhamdulillah and by the way, quick quiz question here to my tweeting family, Mashallah, we have a great time on Twitter for those of you still not too late to join, by the way.

00:47:45--> 00:48:13

So a quick question here, how many sutras begin with Alhamdulillah? And what is common about all of those surah? So list the sutras and then tell me what is common in the tweets and remember, the hashtag is y que gem. So let's see who can get that answer. Without any cheating. Look up the quality of what you can achieve with the Quran. Don't Google the answer? Do your brothers and sisters that's besides the point the month of Ramadan, it's the Quran exam, open up the Quran. It's an open book exam, but don't Google the answer with Ebola. So

00:48:14--> 00:48:55

sort of semi pseudo said as we said it discusses the reality of resurrection and also the power of a loss of Hannah with the other verse number three, those who disbelieve say, when will the judgment day come respond to them that Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala knows it will come upon you. He is the Knower of the unseen verse number seven, those who disbelieve said, should we point to you a man meaning the profitsystem who's going to tell you this preposterous myth that either music tangkula Mama's duck and if you are shred into bits, you will then be resurrected again? Did he invent a lie against a law? Or is there a madness in him? Then Allah says, Indeed, those who do not believe in

00:48:55--> 00:49:33

the hereafter or in torment and far astray, don't they reflect upon what lies in front of them don't they see of the heavens and earth again, throughout the entire Koran? Allah links the power of the world around us with the reality of Judgment Day and resurrection. The sutra then moves on, to mention the blessings given to the root and Sulaiman that would could make the Iran soft. And so the man had the control of the wind and the workers of the jinn, verse number 13, Yama, lunella, who Maja shell member Haribo whatever theater would you find in kajabi? Well, coup de la ciudad that they would make for him whatever he wished of sanctuaries and mosques and statues and bowls like

00:49:33--> 00:49:59

pools and massive heavy cauldrons, the gins would work because he Allah gave Solomon the power to control them. Then Allah says airmen who either the Buddha shukra or family of Buddha wouldn't cinema or family of food. Do your sugar through your Amel. This is a very important verse here. Sugar is not just done by thanks, you said hamdulillah a sugar karela. That is a part of sugar

00:50:00--> 00:50:43

It needs to be done. But the real shocker is in this verse. Aaron modal, show me your thankfulness in your actions. Do your lifestyles conformed to the level of thankfulness you should have do rituals does your a bada does your worship does that conform so the real thankfulness is in one XAML and not just in tongue servants. intermodal added that with a chakra and then Allah subhana wa tada says, but few of my servants are truly thankful. Then Allah tells us the story of the death of Solomon. This is the only time it occurs in the Koran, verse 14, for them Napoleon Hill Moto, when we decreed that death would come for him, nothing indicated to the gin that Solomon had died, he was

00:50:43--> 00:51:23

standing there on his staff, looking at the gin working for a long period of time, maybe even days went by, and he just standing there, and the jinn thought that he's monitoring them. And the earthworm dad, but without the worm came, right, some termites came and they started eating. And it took many days until finally the termites ate the staff. And so the man fell down dead. And so the people knew that and agenda locality. I don't wanna labor, biological father been moving genes are not powerful, a law is powerful. The djinns did not even know that that person in front of them was dead. That's how they are, we really have to reconfigure and I've given many lectures about the

00:51:23--> 00:51:59

jinn. And this verse is very clear that Allah subhanaw taala is putting the jinn in their place, they didn't even know that this person who is standing there is now a corpse. And they kept on working for days on end thinking that Solomon is still monitoring them. And so a lot of xojo did this on purpose to show the other people who could see the agenda at that time, consume it, control them, that to show the other people that the jinn are not entities that are all knowledgeable or powerful, they are creation like a law, they have different characteristics than us. But the one who truly understands those characteristics does not fear them at all in a supernatural manner

00:51:59--> 00:52:36

whatsoever. And this is something I have spoken about in my number of lectures on the jinn that I have given. So in the story as well as we said, the story of Sabbath is mentioned and the blessings that Allah subhana wa tada has given them of gardens and of safety and of roads that they will travel with plenty of towns, but Allah says in verse number 17 1819 and onwards, Allah says they turned away they were ungrateful, they demanded more for the sake of boasting, or Robin abide by as funny they want it to boast to people that give us even longer roads so that we can show mankind who we are. See if Allah blesses you, it should come with humility, no problem. If Allah gives you more

00:52:36--> 00:53:18

you thank Allah more no problem. The blessings of Allah are blessings if you are humble, but the minute that you become arrogant and boastful, those blessings become curses. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says, again, look at the power of the Quran, how powerful this mighty civilization, the mightiest civilization of its timeframe, their structures, by the way, are still around for us to see, we still have the remnants of that massive dam that they built 3000 something years where I think we are 3000 years ago, and Allah says towards dijana, whom ahaadeeth we made them stories Subhan Allah, what power what language in the Quran is this only Allah can speak like this. We made

00:53:18--> 00:53:58

them stories, and they are indeed nothing but stories for us for Jana home ahaadeeth woman zakenna honkala Bahasa and we tore them up in every single tearing, and the surah then goes on to tell us of the battle between the followers and between evil leaders again, the same thing of a HAZOP. We see it over here, each one blaming the other. Look at verse 32. And onwards, read it and ask yourself, do you want to be in this ridiculous Battle of the blame game of what you said? Is it too late You didn't think in this world what you wanted. So don't be amongst those groups of people. And then the surah ends with a beautiful challenge. Beautiful challenge verse 46. Pull in our Evo combi wahida.

00:53:58--> 00:54:37

I'm asking you only one thing, this is a demand I have from you. Until como de la he must never forget that you stand up for the sake of a law individually or in groups and then you think you ponder, think about this person. Is he true or not think about the message. Think about the religion. The point of this verse is we are being told to challenge the non Muslims around us that look, all I'm asking for you to do is to think reasonably think in groups or individually but ponder, look at my message, my message illuminate the message the prophet SAW said him, look at the message of Islam. Look at the Koran. Ask yourself, Is this true or not? That's all I'm asking. All

00:54:37--> 00:55:00

I'm asking for is a reasonable sincere Look unto holy law that you sincerely standard for Allah for truth. And then you think about the message of this man, what a reasonable religion What more do you want? all we're asking mankind is that we want you to look at our message. Look at what the Quran says. Look at the life of our Prophet sallallahu wasallam and then you decide and what you decide you have to bear

00:55:00--> 00:55:40

The consequences for so this is the Seurat setup to conclude his suit and filter today and sort of falter is also a mucky sudra. And this too, is one of my favorite suitors. And I'm kidding, you know, this is one of my favorite tools. I mean, it has to rely on lots of favorite suitors, and especially sort of felted it has a soft spot for me when I lead solder, a lot of times I'll be reciting from suta felted, sort of vaulted is a mid mucky, surah. It's a relatively short, sort of five and a half, six pages, and it's around 45 verses. And its primary message is the praise of Allah subhana wa Taala and the listing of some of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Also, I

00:55:40--> 00:56:23

find sort of thought to be symptomatic of the beauty of the Quran in that if you read it, and you try to break it down, topic wise, the topics go all over the place, the topics really are everywhere, yet when you actually read it, the style just flows smoothly, as if there is no discontinuity. This is one of the beauties of the Quran where the characteristics of the Quran that human speech it is a logical flow a then B then C then D as for the speech of a law, it really is just everywhere at once and when you're reading in Arabic, you don't even notice that it is going everywhere. It's just beautiful, the style and the language. This truly is a divine speech and

00:56:23--> 00:57:02

that's why the Quran if you really want to appreciate it, it must be done in the Arabic language but nonetheless, if not then you do what you can listen to sort of fathered by the one of my favorite chef Mohammed a tube, the current amount of Medina. I used to pray behind him in Medina listened to his presentation when he's doing it live, sort of falter, beautiful, beautiful, pseudo. But the beginning of All praise is due to a law the Originator of the heavens and earth the one who has made angels is messengers some he has given two wings, some he has given three some he has given four and he increases as much as he wants. Djibouti Radha his Salam has over 600 wings. So Allah is telling

00:57:02--> 00:57:48

us that the angels have wings in the surah so the Father has so many amazing phrases and powerful languages. Verse number two, whatever mercy Allah azza wa jal gives upon the people none can withhold that mercy and whatever Allah with holes, none can release it. Verse number five, all mankind the promise of Allah is true. So do not be deceived by this world, nor let the grand deceiver meaning shaytaan deceive you about Allah subhanho wa Taala verse number six, mankind is zetta ferula is that to Jamia whoever desires glory, let him know that all glory belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala verse number 14, those whom you call out to besides Allah, they can't even hear

00:57:48--> 00:58:30

you. Even if they could hear you, they wouldn't have the power to give you what you want. And on the Day of Judgment, they will reject your ship, they will do Cofer of your ship, verse number 15, all mankind You are the Koran to Allah. And Allah is the honey, the all rich and the Karim verse number 28, the only servants of a law who truly fear a law or the rule of law, the scholars, as I said, try to be at least associated with the aroma, even if you're not going to be an alum, at least associate with them. And a lot of xojo says that that category of people they can reach a level of husham Allah make all of us amongst them that no other category can reach. One of the key passages of the

00:58:30--> 00:59:09

surah is the the the story or the issue of the Quran having been inherited by Alice chosen servants verses 32 to 33 and 34. Read this section here, then we cause to inherit the book to those whom we chose from our servants. So those who took the book, believe in the Quran, they have a certain privilege and status but then Allah says there's three categories amongst them. We're going to come back to these three categories again and again as soon as a man and Susan Walker these three categories will be mentioned so memorize these three categories here they are mentioned over here, number one from in home volume will be enough see some of them are doing wrong to themselves. Number

00:59:09--> 00:59:46

two from a woman who maka Dawson Some are mediocre some more average number three woman home sad, humble hierarchs. Some are racing ahead with good deeds, and that is the real blessing. You have Muslims that are not doing what they're supposed to do. You have Muslims that are just barely getting by. And then you have Muslims that are Mashallah Tabata color racing and winning the race. And then verse number 33, a blessing to all three of them. Eventually, all three shall enter Paradise but each one in accordance with his or her deeds. And some of them we seek Allah's refuge might enter Paradise after jahannam as I've explained in other lectures, and what will they say

00:59:46--> 00:59:59

verse 34, what will they say in verse and when they get to gender when they get to gender? We'll call hamdulillah Hilary bandel has an inner burner Lahore, foon Shakur, Allah The Helena darel

01:00:00--> 01:00:46

mokameh team and Family Law ms Suna v ha na sabalan while IMS una fee Hello, they will say Al Hamdulillah, who has the one who has finally gotten rid of all of our anxieties, the one that has allowed us to be in this abode of permanency? neither will we ever get tired here, nor will any vain talk or wastefulness ever afflict us, when they get to Jen, that is when they're gonna say Alhamdulillah no more worries, this world dear Muslim, it is a world of anxiety and worry, I swear to you, no one in this whole world is without worry, doesn't matter what you have or don't have true. The size of the worry, the quality of the worry is going to vary from time to person to place.

01:00:46--> 01:01:31

But every one of us has something we're anxious about something that we're worried about this world is associated with worry, where will worry cease to exist. When we enter with our first step into gender. What will we say? Alhamdulillah Hilda de la habana hasn't. That's the goal that I have. That's the goal you should have as well want to enter that place, which is worry free zone that is what gender is no anxiety, no stress, no grief, no bickering, nothing of evil is going to be happening over there. And then this surah ends by reminding us that those who have evil plots, they will only end up harming themselves and Allah subhana wa tada then gives us the stark reality of how

01:01:31--> 01:02:17

merciful he is in the very final verse, verse 45. Whenever you are who do not allow us to be marketable, if Allah subhana wa tada were to punish the people for what they have done. Matata Kali Hammond button, he would not leave a single creature on this entire Earth. If Allah were to treat us the way we deserve, rather than the way that he wants to treat us. If a law were to treat us without his mercy, not a single creature would be left. If we wanted that type of justice.
