Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah, who Allah Allah, He will be here woman while hammerberg. Today I have the very difficult task of doing the most complex Powerball than the entire quote on. And this is not something that I am saying is the most complex history teaches us this idea, or this verse, or this parable has over 50 treatises written specifically about it, including a man who has it in his mascots at Anwar. It is, of course, the idea to nor alone auto semi washed out. And you have an entire spectrum of how to understand this parable, from the philosophical to the metaphysical, to the spiritual, to the mainstream orthodox to all of the various opinions and

00:01:09--> 00:01:49

even within mainstream, you have an entire spectrum. And I have literally nine and a half minutes now. So let me squeeze in this parable to one interpretation, with the caveat that there are no exaggeration, dozens of many, many interpretations out there. And even within each interpretation, you have a spectrum so I'm going to be forced to stick to one specific narrative and this is one that is found in serial poverty. And even though Josie is famous book is at the mercy of and it is also in our buses basic paradigm and that is the following that this is everybody knows Allahu Luna semi watchable or this idea is a parable of the heart of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that

00:01:49--> 00:02:30

is one opinion there's 50 others we're gonna stick with this opinion for the rest of the ieo Allahu Udo semi watty will art Allah is the light of the heavens and earth according to this paradigm. Here Nora sumati without means the one who guides to the light so Allah is the one who is the guide. As I said, for every phrase, there's many spectrums we're gonna have to gloss over them. One interpretation, Allah is the guide so he is nor and his Quran is nor and the Prophet system is known and Islam is known and the motif of nor we have at least half a dozen parables we talked about light beam guidance, light being that which guides and along is the ultimate guide along hulu's summer

00:02:30--> 00:03:12

watch he will methadone od he the parable of his light even above said fear lb Navy in the heart of his Navy. So the rest of the Aya methadone od he is about the help of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, methadone od he can be shot and fee hummus, VA, el mismo fees to Georgia. So there's three things Muscat mitzvah and zu GA, okay, again, we have to go breeze over it according to this narrative or one strand within this narrative because even within there's many opinions, according to this one strand, their mascot what is the mascot By the way, mascot is like you see the window, it has a bit of a inflection. That's the mascot. Once upon a time when there were no electricity,

00:03:12--> 00:03:53

they would have knishes that you would put the candle within to protect the candle from the light and to cause the light to bounce back onto the onto the people. And if you go to any mosque built more than 100 years ago, in any of the Muslim lands, you will find the issues in the corner you will find them that's the musket. So the musket is the carving that protects the delicate lantern. Okay, according to this interpretation, the Muscat here is the chest of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is the Muscat methadone. Adi, the example of the light of Allah in the caliber of the prophets of Allah who it was sent him the light of Allah here means Islam he man It is Allah

00:03:53--> 00:04:35

guidance right. The example of Allah's guidance in the heart of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is the musket which is the chest of the Prophet since Adam method Rooney commish cotton fee her mitzvah mitzvah has what it is a candle or a lantern, okay. So you have the candle or you have a lantern, el mismo Fuzhou jaja, Georgia, the lantern or the candle it must be surrounded by a crystal because every lamp right you have the actual wick and you have that which you put the light to. So you have the oil and you have the candlestick, but it must be protected by some type of glass and then you put that glass that lantern you put it in the Mischka Are you guys following you

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

guys following this parable? Okay, so the mascot is the chest of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the zoo judge or the crystal is the color of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and inside the color is the light that Allah has placed of the Quran and of Eamon so far, so clear. Right, so methadone od e commish gatson fee hummus ba la misma Kofi zu GA, okay. azu ga Dhaka

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

Above the profitsystem the crystal the heart azu ga can under her coca Bhandari the heart of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even before I placed the candle in it, it is like a shining bright star Gold Cup is a star do Ray the most brightest star not any star the brightest star so the cult of the prophets of cinema is already giving out the nor of the purity of his fitrah he is a pure human being his heart is clean. His heart is giving out this is even before the candle has been put into it. Okay, so gonna go come on Dory. You can zoom in Sharjah T Mobile rocket NZ tuna where does the lantern get its wax from get its oil from the oil comes from your Kudu Min shujaa T Mobile

00:05:48--> 00:06:30

Raka from a blessing tree. Now what is the blesser tree again you have a whole spectrum interpretation one opinion it is the Quran from Allah subhana wa tada and this fits perfectly with a previous parable we gave three four days ago Didn't we say that Allah says I'm tired okay for Allah who method and Kelly mutton, Khashoggi rotten fever and we said one interpretation of sheduled Allah is what the Quran so this is now going back to this parable here. So the you Ullman Show Geronimo Baraka so the light that is in the lantern, the source of the if you like the oil is coming from the Koran that's one interpretation. Another interpretation minchah Jetta Timbo Baraka is from the

00:06:30--> 00:07:09

family of Abraham. So it is a blessing at family tree matrigel Baraka zaytuna family Abraham zaytoun right what Tini was a tune and according to one interpretations, a tune here is Jerusalem, so, so Jerusalem because Jerusalem is the land of all of the profits or majority of the profits, except for our Prophet sallallahu I think he was setting them so shujaa moussaka is the blessing Abrahamic tree, okay, that's one interpretation. Another interpretation and shadow Baraka is the Quran lash out of a year. Well, I've got to be here if we say it's the Quran means it's not coming from this earth, east or west. It's coming from up there. If we say is the Quran, it's neither Eastern nor

00:07:09--> 00:07:54

Western is from up there. If we say is Abraham lasher to Allah. He is neither Jewish nor Christian Makana Ibrahim yahudi Yun wilderness Ronnie Yeah, he's neither from those people nor these people he is from omoton hanifa la sharqiya 10 wala RB. You do say to her, you will do what Olam says who now the oil itself is so pure, that it itself is giving out light even before the candle touches it. Now we have the light of the color or the light of the crystal which is giving out light. Now we have the light of the oil which is itself giving out light. Then we have the candle which is from Allah which is giving out light. So Allah is saying the hearts of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:54--> 00:08:39

coming from the Abrahamic family and treat now the Quran has come down. What is all of this neutron Allah, no, multiple layers of light, multiple layers of light. He is from a blended family. The entire genealogy of Allah Ibrahim is blessing as Allah says in the Quran, and on top of this, his heart itself was pure, and we know this from his own pre ye time at the first 40 years the purity he never worship false cause he never uttered a lie. He was assaulted. And I mean before anybody called him nobody under assault on this earth. He was called a Saudi of Canada mean before anybody said to him Yasuda Allah they used to call him Saudi and I mean why because method almost nobody can be

00:08:39--> 00:08:44

shot. That is the Muscat that is the sorry the the coke oven sorry, that is the pure

00:08:45--> 00:09:27

the coke oven to read the star the pure star then Allah azza wa jal says that no don't either. No, this is light upon light we can say light compounded, meaning the heart of the Prophet system is pure. His genealogy is pure. The Quran that he was given is pure. All of this put together his heart now becomes the ultimate source of guidance for all of humanity. There is no guidance other than the guidance of the prophets of Allah who I think he was sending them. There is no way to reach Allah subhana wa tada without following the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu are they he was seldom nor on either nor yeah de la hooli naughty HeMan Yasha It is Allah who guides people to his

00:09:27--> 00:10:00

light It is Allah who is the guide. By the way, this phrase, it kind of proves that the whole metaphor is about the light of guidance. Yeah de la who the naughty he Manya Sha, Allah is guiding to his light to whomever he pleases, because Allah is the one who is the Haji and then Allah says oil but it will load that in us and Allah gives parables to mankind will allow liquidation Adam and Allah is aware of everything tomorrow shallow we're going to continue the next verse where Allah talks about blue matte blue ma folk about keep this point in mind
