00:00:00--> 00:00:00

Hi I'm

00:00:02--> 00:00:11

Nina Shay. banyo lungeing Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim

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

watching can

00:00:19--> 00:00:21

see one thing you know,

00:00:22--> 00:00:23

in

00:00:24--> 00:00:25

Nanaimo

00:00:28--> 00:00:33

smil Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Ali he was a woman while

00:00:34--> 00:01:11

we were still doing so they brought him verse 22 and I said that this idea is so profound and can be interpreted in different ways. Yesterday, we followed one interpretation where the Kelly motiva is that of La ilaha illAllah, which is Imani and today we're gonna move on to another interpretation which is mentioned by many Rhoda Ma, including cubanelle, Josie, and also the famous professor had been assured, he said this interpretation in his opinion makes more sense that is that is that when Allah says, haven't you seen the example of the calamata ueber. Here he says the calamata yerba is the Quran itself the speech of Allah because the Koran is the most beautiful speech and it is the

00:01:11--> 00:01:51

column of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the Kalamata yerba is the Quran and Allah subhana wa tada dances using this now and all that you have the Kalamata yoga, that the calamata Yoga is a beautiful tree and the more you recite the Quran, the deeper it goes into the heart and the more the Quran will be entrenched and the more your love for the Koran and Iman will grow kashia gelatin tea but in Oslo hatha bit wolfer ro Hafiz sama, the Quran will raise you up, and this is in the Hadith that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Verily, Allah subhana wa tada will raise up some people via this book, may Allah make us amongst them, and he shall debase other people. And we know

00:01:51--> 00:02:35

from the Hadith in Bukhari that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, it will be said to the Companion of the Quran, Sahaba Koran on the Day of Judgment, to recite and rise up for every verse, he recites he will go one level higher. So the concept of rising up through the Quran, it is very explicit in the Quran and in the sooner so here we have the example therefore of the Quran that the sheduled simply button also hatha button will follow Hafiz sama, to cola cola when the Quran is giving you its fruits throughout the entire season. Anytime you need something, turn to the Quran, read the Quran, get the Baraka of the Quran. If you're feeling sad, if you're feeling down if you

00:02:35--> 00:03:15

feeling depressed, if you need any supper, read the Quran and it will give you what you need. So this is the second interpretation that the Kalamata yerba is the Quran. There is a third interpretation which is a very small group, and there's nothing wrong with mentioning it and they said that Kalamata yerba is any beautiful kalama when you invite somebody to Islam when you say a positive word when you're following the Suna by being cheerful and optimistic. So Kadima, Yaba becomes a beautiful speech, any beautiful speech, and when you interpret it this way, what Allah is therefore referencing is that when you speak good, then you are spreading good in people and you're

00:03:15--> 00:03:54

planting the seeds of optimism and your good nature and your good words will impact other people and they're going to be spreading these good news the way you're giving unto them, these trees and these, if you'd like us to hazard warfare was a map. So we say, for example, that in this case, the carry motiva will spread its impact to other people. So this has three interpretations. Firstly, Kadima is La ilaha illAllah, and this is the majority opinion. Secondly, Kalamata Eva is the Koran and there are many relevant who said this and then thirdly, some odema said Kalamata does any good word and all three of these meanings are valid. Now the next verse flips it around, and Allah says,

00:03:55--> 00:04:40

One method will carry Martin javita the example of a filthy Kadima what is the filthy Kadima? It depends on how you interpreted the pure Kadima. If you said the Kalamata yerba is La Ilaha Illa. Allah, the filthy kalama is the Karima of shirk. It is people calling to other than Allah. If you interpret the Kalamata Eva as the Quran, the filthy Kadima is anything that is meant to reject the Quran, any type of ideology or methodology that is meant to negate the Koran. So Allah says one method will carry mutton kabisa the example or the parable of a filthy Kadima. kashia jo rotten hobby, like an evil tree, a tree that is thorny, prickly, no leaves, no flowers, no fruits. Nobody

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

likes such a tree. Gotcha. Jonathan javita would you to such menfolk in order, it has been cut off from on top of the earth, it has no roots. It's not going to be stable. It will not give you stability nor will it provide stability in your life. So if you follow other than the Kalamata yerba

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

If you follow other than the Quran, you will not be entrenched. You will not be solidified. You will not be anchored. You will have a tree that is filthy, that is discarded that has no roots Would you do that make phone calls or the malla ham in karate, it has no stability on the earth. So when you have the Kalamata yerba, you have stability, you are anchored. You know where you are, you know your purpose when the trials of life and tribulations of life come when the winds of change come you have a man you're rock solid, you have the Kalamata yerba. When you don't have the Kalamata Yoruba, you are like some type of branches or bushes that are not implanted in the earth. When the winds of

00:05:44--> 00:06:26

change, change come. When the winds of fitna come you will go with the winds wherever they go, mother Hammond Corrado, you have no stability. So Subhana Allah when you have a man and when you have the Koran, it provides stability in your life. It's like literally a magnet. It's like a strong tree that roots you in the ground. You are firm, despite all the changes happening. When you don't have the Kalamata yerba. You don't have La ilaha illAllah you don't have the Quran, then you will panic at anything, you will not have the peace you will not have the intimate non and you will be like the treat that everybody discards and then Allah says you habitual law hula Deena amanu bill

00:06:26--> 00:07:12

cola sabeti Phil hyah to dunia waffle after Allah azza wa jal will make firm use of bits Allah will make firm with the holy Sabbath. Now again, what is the holy Sabbath? Either La ilaha illa Allah or the Quran depending on how you interpret the Kalamata yerba, Allah will make firm the people of Eamon with the Kadima or with the Quran depending on how you interpret it. So if you have the Kadima, Allah will reinforce and Allah will make it firm when Phil hired to dunya Warfield ophira What does this mean? Even Abbas said, Phil higher to dunya in this world means when a person is going to leave this dunya Allah will bless him to say that Karima yerba when he leaves May Allah

00:07:12--> 00:07:56

make the last phrase we say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, our Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Whoever says La ilaha illa Allah as his last breath shall enter Jenna, how can we guarantee that we cannot guarantee that but Allah is telling us if we are firm to the Kalamata eba and if we are loyal to it, then Allah is saying, I will make it firm for you. And before you leave this dunya you have bitchu Allahu Allah Dena Amadou. I will bless you to say that Kadima, you have a fifth fifth do it for the higher to dunya and then we're fill our hero in the hereafter as well. When is the hereafter? Even Abbas said when malankara nickeil come to you and they ask you the questions Who

00:07:56--> 00:08:34

will give you the answer? Allah you have bitchu Allahu Allah Dena amanu Allah will give you the answer, and Allah will allow you to answer when you are in the cupboard. So this AI talks to us about being affirmed by the Kalamata yerba again what is the curry matoba? Either La ilaha illAllah or the Quran? Is there any contradiction? If we say either data or the Quran? Is there any contradiction? No, because the Quran, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah are the same thing. It is the Quran that teaches us La ilaha illa Allah, Allah Allah Allah is explained by the teachings of the Quran. So these two interpretations are both valid. And Allah azza wa jal is giving us a beautiful

00:08:34--> 00:09:14

metaphor. So I encourage you to go back to these verses and understand them in light of this brief explanation. And then ask yourself, don't you want to be amongst those whom Allah will affirm whom Allah will strengthen your habitual law hula Dena Amadou will bolitho but in this world and had the dunya waffle after if you do then turn to the Kadima study the Kadima say the Kadima, learn the Quran, memorize the Quran, recite the Quran, and then in sha Allah who to Allah when our time comes. Allah will make us firm and Allah will give us the bat and we'll be able to say the Kalima when we leave and we'll be able to answer the question is the one carrying a kid in the grave? May Allah

00:09:14--> 00:09:19

subhanho wa Taala give us that's about it. We'll continue tomorrow with saramonic monarch butterfly.
