AL BAYAN - Surah AL IMRAN - Part 12 - Verses 77 - 91 - Javed Ahmed Ghamidi

  • 0:09 - 0:15
    Al-Bayan, Discourses on the Qur'an
    by Javed Ahmad Ghamidi
  • 0:17 - 0:24
    Surah Aal i Imran
    Aayaat 77 to 91.
  • 0:25 - 0:28
    Gratitude is only for God,
    the Lord of the World,
  • 0:28 - 0:31
    and may His peace and mercy
    be on Muhammad, the trustworthy.
  • 0:31 - 0:33
    I seek refuge with God
    from the accursed Devil.
  • 0:33 - 0:36
    In the Name of God, the Most Gracious,
    the Ever Merciful.
  • 0:36 - 0:40
    Ladies and Gentlemen, We are resuming
    the study of Surah Aal I Imran
  • 0:40 - 0:42
    from verse 77 in the Quran.
  • 0:43 - 0:47
    In the preceding verses, the Quran,
    states that jews are mistaken
  • 0:47 - 0:52
    for holding that they have a special
    place reserved for them by Allah,
  • 0:52 - 0:55
    due to which they consider
    themselves superior to others.
  • 0:55 - 0:58
    And that the Jews are wrong in assuming
    that God has kept them free
  • 0:58 - 1:01
    of any responsibility in relation to
    the gentiles.
  • 1:01 - 1:05
    The Quran, addressing the Jews, clarified
    that any rank given by Allah is only for
  • 1:05 - 1:09
    those who fulfill the covenant, and act
    in accordance with the covenant
  • 1:09 - 1:15
    at any cost. The Quran terms it as
    Taqwa (fear of God).
  • 1:15 - 1:22
    Those who will act like this will be pious
    and devout, and God loves to be friends
  • 1:22 - 1:27
    with the pious people. Those who disregard
    their promise to Allah, violate all limits
  • 1:27 - 1:29
    and reach a point of shamelessness and
  • 1:29 - 1:32
    even then claim to be God fearing
    and beloved to God,
  • 1:32 - 1:36
    they are just merely imagining things
    and this has no merit.
  • 1:36 - 1:38
    This is clarified in the preceding
    verses of the Quran.
  • 1:38 - 1:41
    The Quran states:
    Innallazeena yashtaroona bi aahdilleahi
  • 1:41 - 1:47
    Indeed, those who trade Allah’s covenant
    and their oaths for a fleeting gain.
  • 1:47 - 1:50
    In the earlier verse, light was thrown
    on those who are
  • 1:50 - 1:51
    God fearing.
  • 1:51 - 1:55
    Now, the Quran says that those
    who trade Allah’s covenant and
  • 1:55 - 1:57
    their oaths for fleeting gain.
  • 1:58 - 2:01
    What is intended by this covenant?
  • 2:01 - 2:05
    It is evident that it's with regard to the
    covenant made with the jews in relation
  • 2:05 - 2:11
    to God’s Shariah (Islamic Law) and the
    advent of the Prophet (pbuh).
  • 2:11 - 2:15
    And with respect to the oaths; it is
    mentioned in context to the oaths
  • 2:15 - 2:18
    with the Prophets by the jews
  • 2:18 - 2:22
    and in particular to help and
    support the Prophet (pbuh).
  • 2:23 - 2:27
    These oaths will be mentioned
    in verse 81.
  • 2:28 - 2:31
    We will learn about the nature of those
    covenants when we read those verses.
  • 2:31 - 2:33
    Pointing towards those
    verses, the Quran says:
  • 2:33 - 2:36
    Innal lazeena yashtaroona bi'ahdil laahi
  • 2:36 - 2:40
    Indeed, those who trade Allah’s covenant
    and
  • 2:40 - 2:46
    wa aymaanihim samanan qaleelan
    and trade their oaths for a fleeting gain.
  • 2:47 - 2:50
    The Quran stated that they think of
    themselves as being beloved to God,
  • 2:50 - 2:53
    They think that they will secure a good
    place with God
  • 2:53 - 2:56
    while trading Allah’s covenant and
    oaths for fleeting gains.
  • 2:56 - 3:00
    ulaaa'ika laa khalaaqa lahum
    fil Aakhirati
  • 3:00 - 3:06
    No matter how religiously they present
    themselves, and think that they are
  • 3:06 - 3:10
    superior to others, they will have no
    share in the Hereafter.
  • 3:10 - 3:16
    Only those who keep Allah’s covenant and
    oaths, the ones who have honest affairs
  • 3:16 - 3:20
    and act in accordance with the laws
    of religion receive His blessings.
  • 3:20 - 3:23
    As against them, these kinds of people
    have no share in the Hereafter.
  • 3:23 - 3:25
    ulaaa'ika laa khalaaqa lahum fil Aakhirati
  • 3:25 - 3:31
    The misconception that the jews have
    that they are the beloved people of God
  • 3:31 - 3:33
    and that they will be treated specially…
  • 3:33 - 3:36
    In fact, there is no doubt that jews are
    a special group of people
  • 3:36 - 3:40
    as stated in the Quran.
    Jews were chosen by God, given a rank
  • 3:40 - 3:44
    and responsibility. Even after all this
    the Quran states that the rank given
  • 3:44 - 3:46
    to the jews was based on merit, it
    was given with a purpose and
  • 3:46 - 3:51
    has its own limitations; it is not like
    the jews will forever enjoy the rank
  • 3:51 - 3:55
    and its status - while they do no justice
    to the responsibility delegated to them.
  • 3:55 - 3:59
    There is no possibility of it.
    ulaaa'ika laa khalaaqa lahum fil Aakhirati
  • 3:59 - 4:03
    They are the ones who will have no share
    in the Hereafter.
  • 4:04 - 4:08
    wa laa yukallimuhumul laahu
    Allah will not speak to them
  • 4:08 - 4:10
    on the Day of resurrection.
  • 4:10 - 4:14
    They are the ones who are rejected
    in the court of Allah…
  • 4:14 - 4:18
    In reality, this is the outcome of
    Laanah (Driven out of Gods mercy).
  • 4:18 - 4:21
    In our terminology, Laanat is used as
    an expletive.
  • 4:21 - 4:24
    It actually means to drive out
    someone from Gods mercy.
  • 4:24 - 4:28
    wa laa yukallimuhumul laahu
    Allah will not speak to them on the
  • 4:28 - 4:32
    Day of resurrection
    wa laa yanzuru ilaihim Yawmal Qiyaamati
  • 4:33 - 4:37
    God will not look at them with kindness
    on the Day of Resurrection.
  • 4:38 - 4:44
    Like you say, God will not even like to
    see them or look at them with kindness.
  • 4:44 - 4:48
    wa laa yuzakkeehim And God will not
    exonerate them of their sins
  • 4:48 - 4:53
    wa lahum 'azabun 'aleem
    and for them there is a painful torment.
  • 4:55 - 4:58
    As the Quran states that they will not
    be exonerated of their sins.
  • 4:58 - 5:00
    What is the meaning of it?
  • 5:00 - 5:04
    It means that they have committed grave
    offences of such a degree that
  • 5:04 - 5:06
    there is no scope for exoneration after some
    mild form of punishment.
  • 5:06 - 5:12
    It is evident from the verse that when
    the sins are so grave…
  • 5:12 - 5:18
    May Allah guide us towards good, so that
    an individual may enter the paradise
  • 5:18 - 5:19
    while taking the first step only.
  • 5:19 - 5:23
    But from this verse we understand that there
    can be certain transgressions that are...
  • 5:23 - 5:24
    since we can only enter paradise
    after being cleansed of all the sins
  • 5:24 - 5:28
    so if an individual cannot rectify his
    offenses through good deeds,
  • 5:28 - 5:32
    Allah removes the remnants of any
    wrongdoing by a punishment,
  • 5:32 - 5:35
    Quran mentioned that
  • 5:35 - 5:38
    they will not even reach this purity.
  • 5:38 - 5:40
    wa lahum 'azabun 'aleem
    for them there is a painful torment.
  • 5:40 - 5:47
    It is evident from this verse that
    how great a sin it is
  • 5:47 - 5:55
    to break Allah’s Covenant, break promises
    and willingly deny the truth.
  • 5:55 - 5:58
    This is a major wrongdoing in
    relation to the Prophet (pbuh) and
  • 5:58 - 6:01
    it is also an offense in any other
    circumstances.
  • 6:01 - 6:03
    The Quran has explicitly detailed it out.
  • 6:03 - 6:07
    The Quran has established a connection in the
    last two verses and stated that
  • 6:07 - 6:10
    in normal circumstances the jews
    have immensely degraded themselves,
  • 6:10 - 6:13
    that is the reason for breaking
  • 6:13 - 6:15
    Allah’s covenant and their oaths
    for a fleeting gain.
  • 6:15 - 6:19
    Therefore, the purification of man's moral
    will become a reason for
  • 6:19 - 6:22
    God's kind attention towards him
    in the hereafter.
  • 6:22 - 6:26
    and if these people have good intentions,
    they have true faith in God,
  • 6:26 - 6:32
    if they are trying to be pious Muslims and do not
    willingly deny the truth by God,
  • 6:32 - 6:34
    but have commited certains other offences.
  • 6:34 - 6:38
    In that case, a glad tiding was received
    that Allah would warn and punish them
  • 6:38 - 6:39
    but eventually wash them of their
    transgressions.
  • 6:40 - 6:42
    And then they can enter heaven.
  • 6:42 - 6:44
    This is what has been explained in
    the Hadiths.
  • 6:44 - 6:48
    When an event is narrated, many-a-times
    the narrators try to exaggerate
  • 6:48 - 6:51
    the real facts.
  • 6:51 - 6:53
    This is what the Quran has explained.
  • 6:53 - 6:56
    The Quran states: Wa inna minhum
    lafaree qany yalwoona
  • 6:56 - 6:57
    alsinatahum bil Kitaabi
  • 6:57 - 7:01
    And there are some among them who
  • 7:01 - 7:05
    while reading the Book of God
    twist their tongues
  • 7:05 - 7:08
    litahsaboohu minal Kitaab,
    wa maa huwa minal Kitaabi
  • 7:08 - 7:14
    so that you may think that what
    they are reading
  • 7:14 - 7:15
    is written in the Book whereas
    it is not written in it.
  • 7:15 - 7:22
    Just imagine to what extent people
    and communities can degrade.
  • 7:23 - 7:26
    If you try to connect it with the previous
    verses,
  • 7:26 - 7:30
    you will understand that these words
    carry extreme displeasure and
  • 7:30 - 7:33
    hate from Allah for these people.
  • 7:35 - 7:39
    Allah gave them a status and
    treated them accordingly…
  • 7:39 - 7:41
    Post that they were, indeed,
    deserving of this punishment.
  • 7:41 - 7:45
    As Allah explains that neither would He
    look at them with kindness,
  • 7:45 - 7:47
    nor interlocute with them,
  • 7:47 - 7:51
    nor will Allah
    purify them of their sins
  • 7:51 - 7:53
    so that they could enter heaven.
  • 7:53 - 7:56
    They will live in this torment forever.
  • 7:56 - 7:58
    If you try to understand their unique
    status;
  • 7:58 - 8:02
    I even gave an example to help you
    get the point across that when the
  • 8:02 - 8:05
    wives of the Prophet (pbuh) were chosen
    for this office.
  • 8:05 - 8:06
    They were designated an office
    at a very unique juncture
  • 8:06 - 8:10
    and it was made clear to them
    that now their reward and
  • 8:10 - 8:12
    punishment would both be
    doubled.
  • 8:12 - 8:16
    In other words, when you are chosen for
    office and you decide to take charge willingly
  • 8:16 - 8:19
    then you must be ready to shoulder the
    responsibilities.
  • 8:20 - 8:21
    The Quran says:
  • 8:22 - 8:24
    There are some among them…
  • 8:24 - 8:28
    It is obvious that it is similar to
    the interpretation that if they
  • 8:28 - 8:31
    want to escape from
    responsibilities
  • 8:31 - 8:33
    of the covenants of God, then how do
    they distort the Book?
  • 8:33 - 8:35
    There are two aspects of it.
  • 8:35 - 8:36
    One you alter the book and its meaning.
  • 8:36 - 8:39
    Another way out is that since majority
    of the people are illiterate,
  • 8:39 - 8:42
    therefore, you distort the book
    by slightly twisting the text and
  • 8:42 - 8:46
    change the meaning of the verse
    in its entirety.
  • 8:47 - 8:51
    In other words, you did not alter the words but
    distorted the meaning with your tongue,
  • 8:51 - 8:52
    that is what has been mentioned here.
  • 8:52 - 8:55
    There are people who while reading
    the book of Allah
  • 8:55 - 8:58
    yalwoona alsinatahum bil Kitaabi
  • 8:58 - 9:02
    There are some among them who
    distort the Book with their tongues
  • 9:02 - 9:03
    that is, they enunciate the
    text of the book in such a manner
  • 9:03 - 9:03
    that you think that whatever they
    are reading
  • 9:03 - 9:09
    litahsaboohu minal Kitaab to make
    you think this ˹distortion˺
  • 9:09 - 9:15
    is from the Book wa maa huwa minal Kitaabi
    but it is not what the Book says.
  • 9:15 - 9:19
    wa yaqooloona huwa min 'indillaahi that
    you may consider it to be
  • 9:19 - 9:20
    from the Book of God,
  • 9:20 - 9:23
    wa maa huwa min 'indillaahi
    even though it is not from God.
  • 9:23 - 9:24
    In other words, they ascribe to god
    whereas it is not from god but them
  • 9:24 - 9:29
    wa yaqooloona 'alal laahil kaziba
    wa hum ya'lamoon
  • 9:29 - 9:34
    [in this manner] they deliberately
    ascribe falsehood to God.
  • 9:35 - 9:39
    The crime that has been mentioned here
    has been perpetrated
  • 9:39 - 9:42
    by both jews and christians. In the
    earlier chapter of Al-Bakara,
  • 9:42 - 9:46
    it was detailed out how jews and
    christains alters and twist the meaning
  • 9:46 - 9:48
    of the word MARWA with their tongues.
  • 9:48 - 9:52
    The word “Marwa” was used when
    Prophet Abraham (pbuh) was asked
  • 9:52 - 9:55
    to sacrifice Prophet Ismael, his son.
  • 9:55 - 9:59
    Apart from other alterations to this
    incident of sacrifice not only did the jews
  • 9:59 - 10:05
    add the name of Prophet Isaac but also
    ruined the pronunciation of the word Marwa.
  • 10:05 - 10:08
    So, this is the type of alteration that has
    been mentioned here in this verse,
  • 10:08 - 10:12
    ​​that you alter the meaning of a word in
    order to divert people's attention
  • 10:12 - 10:17
    to a different topic while concealing the
    real meaning. In order to conceal
  • 10:17 - 10:21
    the fact that Prophet Abraham (pbuh)
    came to Arab,
  • 10:21 - 10:27
    build the house of God, his lineage was
    florished in the soil and also
  • 10:27 - 10:30
    about the incident of Ismael’s
    sacrifice, therefore,
  • 10:30 - 10:34
    anticipating the outcomes of how it
    could relate to the advent of Prophet (pbuh).
  • 10:34 - 10:36
    Jews manipulated the word Marwa.
  • 10:36 - 10:38
    This is an example of how they concealed
    the facts in history,
  • 10:38 - 10:41
    in order to disassociate the relation of
    Prophet Abraham with the house of God.
  • 10:41 - 10:43
    This is just an example that
    I have given…
  • 10:43 - 10:46
    This is what has been indicated here.
  • 10:46 - 10:48
    It is explained that even in the case
    of the Prophet (pbuh),
  • 10:48 - 10:50
    when they are unfair, they can stoop
    to such a level.
  • 10:50 - 10:52
    People would have been visiting
    the Prophet (pbuh),
  • 10:52 - 10:55
    when the Quran repeatedly
    mentioned about the foretelling,
  • 10:55 - 10:57
    people would have been visiting
    the Prophet (pbuh),
  • 10:57 - 10:59
    asking him about the predictions
    mentioned in the Quran.
  • 10:59 - 11:02
    This is how the Quran has sketched the
    picture of what their
  • 11:02 - 11:04
    religious leaders used to do.
  • 11:04 - 11:06
    The Quran mentions how
  • 11:06 - 11:10
    they would distort the real facts
    twist their tongues so that you may think that
  • 11:10 - 11:11
    what they are reading is written in the
    Book whereas it is not written in it.
  • 11:11 - 11:14
    They would give you an impression,
    that what they are reading is written in the Book
  • 11:14 - 11:20
    whereas it is not written in it. The Quran stated:
  • 11:21 - 11:22
    Maa kaana libasharin ai yu'tiyahul
    laahul Kitaaba
  • 11:24 - 11:25
    walhukma wan Nubuwwata summa
    yaqoola linnaasi koonoo
  • 11:26 - 11:27
    'ibaadal lee min doonil laahi
  • 11:27 - 11:33
    The Quran says that: Not only do they
    speak a lie against Prophet (pbuh),
  • 11:33 - 11:37
    they don't even think that It is
    not appropriate
  • 11:37 - 11:42
    for someone that Allah will bless
    him with the Scripture, wisdom,
  • 11:42 - 11:44
    to decide according to that.
  • 11:44 - 11:47
    yu’tiyahulleahul kiteaba val hukma
  • 11:47 - 11:50
    decide according to the wisdom,
  • 11:50 - 11:54
    wan nubuvvata and bestow him with
    prophethood summa yakoola
  • 11:54 - 12:00
    lin neasi koonoo ıbeadan lee min
    doonilleahi “Worship me instead of Allah.”
  • 12:00 - 12:04
    How is it possible? Since, Christians are
    addressed in this verse.
  • 12:05 - 12:09
    How is it possible that God sent down
    His book to the Christians,
  • 12:09 - 12:13
    and guided them to decide in
    religious matter in accordance
  • 12:13 - 12:16
    with the book of God and even appointed
    from him for the status of Prophethood.
  • 12:16 - 12:20
    And instead of inviting people to worship
    God, how could Jesus propagate
  • 12:20 - 12:22
    his own worship instead?
    How is it possible?
  • 12:23 - 12:30
    God says, it cannot be. Christians cannot
    say: koonoo 'ibaadal lee min doonil laahi
  • 12:30 - 12:32
    Be servants to me apart from Allah,
    No!
  • 12:33 - 12:34
    He would rather say:
  • 12:34 - 12:38
    wa laakin koonoo rabbaaniy yeena bimaa
    kuntum tu'allimoonal Kitaaba
  • 12:39 - 12:42
    but rather He would say
    “be servants of God”.
  • 12:42 - 12:45
    Why would he (Jesus) ask you to
    be his servant, rather he would ask you
  • 12:45 - 12:47
    to be servants of God.
  • 12:47 - 12:53
    The word raabbeani means worshipper
    of God (servant of God).
  • 12:53 - 12:55
    Same is the meaning of Maulvi in
    our society.
  • 12:55 - 13:00
    It is indeed a beautiful word
  • 13:00 - 13:05
    but a wrong usage of this word
    has led us to this point.
  • 13:06 - 13:10
    Infact, we learn from the Quran that the
    religious scholars of christians were
  • 13:10 - 13:12
    reffered to as “Rabbanni”.
  • 13:12 - 13:13
    Like we use the term “Mualivi” for our
    religious leaders,
  • 13:13 - 13:15
    its roots are in the word “Maula”.
  • 13:15 - 13:17
    Similarly, Rabbani word in rooted in
    the word “Rab”.
  • 13:17 - 13:21
    So, this word was used in context of
    worshipper of God, servants of God.
  • 13:22 - 13:24
    The Quran say: This is what the Prophet
    would preach.
  • 13:24 - 13:28
    The Quran also mentions that the Prophet
    would never want a
  • 13:28 - 13:32
    a specific number of people to
    become Maulvi (religious scholar) or
  • 13:32 - 13:34
    Rabbani (worshipper of God). He would
    invite everyone to worship God.
  • 13:34 - 13:38
    bimaa kuntum tu'allimoonal Kitaaba
    but [instead, he would say],
  • 13:38 - 13:41
    "Be pious scholars of the Lord because
    of what you have taught
  • 13:41 - 13:43
    of the Scripture and because of what
    you have studied."
  • 13:43 - 13:45
    wa bimaa kuntum tadrusoon
  • 13:45 - 13:50
    but he will surely say, “Be sincere
    worshippers of Allah,
  • 13:50 - 13:54
    because you teach the Book and
    you preach from it.”
  • 13:54 - 14:00
    Wa laa yaamurakum an tattakhizul malaaa
    'ikata wan Nabiyyeena arbaabaa
  • 14:00 - 14:06
    And he would never ask you to take angels
    and prophets as lords.
  • 14:06 - 14:10
    Nor will he ask you to make the angels
    and the prophets as your god
  • 14:11 - 14:12
    He will never ask you to make the angels
    and the prophets as your god
  • 14:14 - 14:18
    a yaamurukum bilkufri ba'da iz
    antum muslimoon
  • 14:17 - 14:23
    Would he ask you to disbelieve after
    you have submitted?
  • 14:23 - 14:29
    The Quran, while invoking the good
    sense of jews, christians and
  • 14:29 - 14:30
    even Quraish of Mecca
    were reprimanded that
  • 14:30 - 14:34
    that those allegations that
    you have made a part of your creed,
  • 14:34 - 14:37
    how could you associate those things
    with the Prophets of Allah.
  • 14:37 - 14:39
    You should never do that.
  • 14:45 - 14:48
    The Prophet would never ask his followers
    to disbelieve after they learn about the truth.
  • 14:48 - 14:51
    And if you ever come across something
    like this,
  • 14:51 - 14:57
    it would not be legitimate to accept
    that it is from God himself.
  • 14:58 - 15:02
    After coming across something of this sort,
    you should be well aware that
  • 15:02 - 15:05
    this is nothing but the alteration of the
    meaning and verses
  • 15:05 - 15:06
    by people who are leading people
    astray.
  • 15:06 - 15:08
    No Prophet can invite you to this
    sort of religion.
  • 15:08 - 15:11
    Look at how a standard has been
    explicated in the Quran that
  • 15:11 - 15:15
    The one who has the book of God, the
    one who has been blessed with
  • 15:15 - 15:19
    the abilities to better comprehend and
    decide on religious matters in
  • 15:19 - 15:20
    accordance with the book of God.
  • 15:20 - 15:23
    The one who would be stationed at the
    position of prophethood,
  • 15:23 - 15:24
    what would he say to the people?
  • 15:24 - 15:27
    He would always guide people towards
  • 15:27 - 15:29
    Tawhid (oneness of God). He would guide
    you towards Tawhid and nothing more than that.
  • 15:29 - 15:32
    He would never ask people to submit
    and worship to him instead of God.
  • 15:32 - 15:33
    He would never boast about himself.
  • 15:33 - 15:37
    The one having the knowledge of the
    book would never exaggerate
  • 15:37 - 15:39
    and boast about the angels
    and Prophets.
  • 15:39 - 15:43
    He would only invite you to
    tawheed, the Oneness of God.
  • 15:43 - 15:47
    Allah says in the Quran, If you come
    across anything that is contrary
  • 15:47 - 15:51
    to the oneness of God, then that is not
    from God, but fabrication of the message.
  • 15:51 - 15:55
    It is not possible that after inviting you
    to Islam and the oneness of God,
  • 15:55 - 15:58
    the Prophet word then ask you to
    make partners with God.
  • 15:58 - 16:01
    It is not possible that the Prophet
    would first proclaim the oneness of God
  • 16:01 - 16:04
    and
    then asked you to worship him instead.
  • 16:04 - 16:07
    This was the principle that was put
    forth to the jews
  • 16:07 - 16:08
    and it was natural to put forth this principle before the jews.
  • 16:08 - 16:13
    Even today, If you read the Torah,
    you will find that the Torah or the Bible is narrating
  • 16:13 - 16:15
    the oneness of God in entirety.
  • 16:15 - 16:19
    You can better comprehend this
    statement which is explained
  • 16:19 - 16:23
    here in context, only when you will
    understand that since,
  • 16:23 - 16:27
    you have the books of your Prophets
    with you. Do you ever see that
  • 16:27 - 16:30
    the Prophet is inviting people to
    worship him?
  • 16:30 - 16:32
    Or give the status of God to someone else?
  • 16:32 - 16:38
    Then how do you believe in it that if Jesus
    in the Bible propagated the Oneness of God,
  • 16:39 - 16:43
    stressed on Iman and good deeds,
    and make this as a foundation
  • 16:43 - 16:45
    of invitation towards the right path.
  • 16:45 - 16:49
    Even after thousands of years
    after Moses's Torah,
  • 16:49 - 16:50
    it preaches the same facts
  • 16:50 - 16:53
    about the Oneness of God. How is it
    possible then that
  • 16:53 - 16:55
    when the religious scholars try to
    understand the text, they
  • 16:55 - 16:56
    ascribe these things to the prophets.
  • 16:56 - 16:58
    This is what has been stressed over
    here.
  • 16:58 - 17:04
    Is it possible that first the Prophet
    (pbuh) would work hard all his life
  • 17:04 - 17:07
    to invite people to the religion of Islam and
    then whisper into someone's ear to submit to Him
  • 17:07 - 17:08
    and worship Him instead?
  • 17:08 - 17:15
    It is not possible. You will understand the full force
    of this argument when you understand what sort of juxtaposition is being carried out.
  • 17:15 - 17:20
    The juxtaposition is between what the prophet
    has left behind and what is being done by his followers.
  • 17:20 - 17:22
    This is what is being discussed here in
    the verse of the Quran.
  • 17:24 - 17:25
    This is what is being explained
    over here.
  • 17:25 - 17:26
    This is what is being stated in the Quran:
  • 17:26 - 17:28
    a ya’murukum bil kufri baa’da iz antum
    muslimoon,
  • 17:28 - 17:31
    the Prophet (pbuh) invited people towards
    the religion of Islam,
  • 17:31 - 17:33
    towards the onesness of God.
  • 17:33 - 17:36
    Even today this invitation towards the
    right path is clearly stated
  • 17:36 - 17:40
    in the book of God. Post this, did the Prophet
    (pbuh) proclaim to St. Paul that He had
  • 17:40 - 17:44
    attained Godly powers, or there are
    some attributes of God
  • 17:44 - 17:45
    that are manifested in him?
  • 17:45 - 17:47
    Did the Prophet (pbuh) ever announce
    that he has received the divine powers?
  • 17:47 - 17:51
    When did the Prophet (pbuh) ever say
    something like this that you are saying
  • 17:51 - 17:54
    to people after He is gone?
  • 17:55 - 17:56
    This is what has been mentioned
    in the Quran.
  • 17:56 - 18:00
    You will better comprehend this when
    you will compare the
  • 18:00 - 18:04
    meaning of the word muslimoon with
    ya’murukum bil kufri.
  • 18:04 - 18:07
    How is it possible? When the Prophet
    (pbuh) himself proclaimed
  • 18:07 - 18:11
    about the oneness of God and stood
    by it throughout His life.
  • 18:11 - 18:15
    How is it possible that He might have
    said something of this sort,
  • 18:15 - 18:18
    that you claim the Prophet (pbuh) has
    mentioned about his own divinity.
  • 18:18 - 18:22
    How is it possible that the Prophet (pbuh)
    first presented himself
  • 18:22 - 18:27
    as the servant of God and preached
    about Iman and Tawhiid,
  • 18:27 - 18:29
    in accordance with the verses of
    the Quran.
  • 18:29 - 18:33
    And then in no time we came to
    know different stories of a completely
  • 18:33 - 18:36
    different perspective about the Prophet
    (pbuh) attaining the virtue of divinity.
  • 18:36 - 18:38
    While inviting people to Islam, was the
    Prophet (pbuh) asking people
  • 18:38 - 18:39
    to unbelief after they became Muslim.
  • 18:39 - 18:43
    This is what has been mentioned in this
    phrase a ya’murukum bil kufri baa’da
  • 18:43 - 18:48
    iz antum muslimoon Would he ask you
    to disbelieve after you have submitted?
  • 18:48 - 18:51
    The Messenger of Allah can never do
    something like this.
  • 18:51 - 18:54
    The Prophet (pbuh) only invites people
    to Tawhiid and preaches about
  • 18:54 - 18:55
    the oneness of God till the end.
  • 18:56 - 18:59
    Wa iz akhazal laahu meesaaqan Nabiyyeena
  • 18:59 - 19:04
    [O Prophet! Remind them of the time]
    When Allah took the Covenant
  • 19:04 - 19:06
    from them regarding the Prophets.
  • 19:06 - 19:09
    Wa iz akhazal laahu meesaaqan Nabiyyeena
  • 19:09 - 19:13
    When Allah took the Covenant from
    them regarding the Prophets.
  • 19:13 - 19:17
    What was the Covenant? lamaaa aataitukum
    min Kitaabinw wa Hikmatin
  • 19:17 - 19:21
    Allah says in the Quran that: I have
    given you the Shariyat (Islamic Laws)
  • 19:21 - 19:23
    and the Wisdom. summa jaaa'akum
    Rasoolum
  • 19:23 - 19:26
    then a Rasul (Messenger) comes to you.
  • 19:26 - 19:30
    Allah took the Covenant from them
    regarding the Prophets,
  • 19:30 - 19:34
    and reminded them of who they are,
    giving them the Book and the Wisdom.
  • 19:35 - 19:39
    In other words, after explaining all the
    content, Allah mentions that
  • 19:39 - 19:40
    he has given them his religion,
    i.e., Islam.
  • 19:40 - 19:44
    There was a possibility of deviating
    from the right path only when there
  • 19:44 - 19:46
    would have been no clear guidance
    from God.
  • 19:46 - 19:50
    As the Quran says: It is possible that
    someone might not have
  • 19:50 - 19:54
    received God’s guidance or the book,
    and in that case
  • 19:54 - 19:55
    if there is any misunderstanding.
  • 19:56 - 20:01
    Here it is introduced in a way, Remind them
    when Allah took the Covenant from you
  • 20:01 - 20:05
    regarding the Prophets, and raised
    you as a Umma.
  • 20:05 - 20:07
    Do you remember what you were bestowed
    upon from God?
  • 20:07 - 20:10
    He gave you the light of his religion…
  • 20:10 - 20:14
    The Quran has mentioned it in a lot of places
    that the religion is composed
  • 20:14 - 20:17
    of only two things, one Shariyat (Islamic
    Laws) and Hikmmat (wisdom).
  • 20:17 - 20:18
    What does wisdom mean?
  • 20:18 - 20:20
    Wisdom is to do with issues of faith and morality.
  • 20:20 - 20:24
    In philosophical terminology you can
    interpret it as metaphysics and ethics.
  • 20:24 - 20:28
    In reality the religion is to do with both
    metaphysics and ethics,
  • 20:28 - 20:34
    and serve as the foundation for developing
    laws. And those laws are known as Shariyat
  • 20:35 - 20:38
    The Quran states that: you were given
    both the Shariyat and the Wisdom
  • 20:38 - 20:40
    and then you were asked to take
    an oath.
  • 20:40 - 20:41
    summa jaaa'akum Rasoolum
  • 20:41 - 20:47
    if a Rasul (Messenger) comes to you
    musaaddikun limea maaakum
  • 20:47 - 20:51
    a Rasul (Messenger) comes to you
    confirming that which is
  • 20:51 - 20:55
    with you (Shariyat, Wisdom that
    Allah had given to you
  • 20:55 - 20:57
    and the predictions about the coming
    of a Prophet) and comes to you
  • 20:57 - 21:04
    confirming that then what would
    you do?
  • 21:04 - 21:10
    latu'minunna bihee you must definitely
    believe in himwa latansurunnah
  • 21:10 - 21:12
    and you must definitely help him.
  • 21:12 - 21:17
    Therefore, this was the covenant that
    Allah made with the Israelites.
  • 21:17 - 21:21
    Though a word issue used in this
    covenant: when
  • 21:21 - 21:25
    a Rasul (Messenger) comes, it is amply
    clear that it is pointing towards
  • 21:25 - 21:26
    the Prophet (pbuh).
  • 21:26 - 21:30
    In fact, they were part of this covenant
    even in the times of other prophets
  • 21:30 - 21:31
    that used to come to them.
  • 21:31 - 21:35
    But this was a special covenant in relation
    to the Prophet (pbuh),
  • 21:35 - 21:39
    as is mentioned in their books that he
    would not bring about
  • 21:39 - 21:44
    a new religion all together, but confirm
    the religion that is already in practice.
  • 21:45 - 21:49
    It is your own problem that you denied
    something that was already present
  • 21:49 - 21:53
    and the Prophet (pbuh) was only
    confirming the religion
  • 21:53 - 21:54
    that was already with you.
  • 21:54 - 21:58
    You took up the heavy responsibility
    of that Covenant,
  • 21:58 - 22:00
    but when you had to confirm.
  • 22:00 - 22:02
    You denied having made any such
    covenant and did not confirm.
  • 22:02 - 22:03
    It is a crime.
  • 22:03 - 22:07
    As Jesus says: the bridegrooms wait
    for their brides throughout the night
  • 22:07 - 22:09
    and at dawn, they
    felt asleep.
  • 22:09 - 22:13
    You are responsible for the situation
    you find yourselves in.
  • 22:13 - 22:17
    So Allah says, [remind them] Allah took
    the Covenant about the Prophets,
  • 22:17 - 22:20
    and the covenant was that whenever
    any of God’s Prophet would
  • 22:20 - 22:22
    come musaddiqul limaa ma'akum
    a Rasul (Messenger) would come to you
  • 22:22 - 22:26
    confirming about what is already with
    you (Shariyat, Wisdom) that Allah had
  • 22:26 - 22:29
    given to you and the predictions about
    the coming of a Prophet in Torah
  • 22:29 - 22:32
    and Bible) and comes to you confirming
    that must definitely believe in him,
  • 22:32 - 22:32
    you must definitely help him.
  • 22:32 - 22:37
    Kala a aakraartum va ahaaztum aalea
    zealikum ısree Allah said:
  • 22:37 - 22:42
    “Do you agree and accept (My Oath)”? To
    understand this verse,
  • 22:42 - 22:45
    we should consult Bible and Torah.
  • 22:45 - 22:47
    Whenever these covenants were
    taken from them,
  • 22:47 - 22:50
    every time they were asked to confirm,
    you will transfer this knowledge
  • 22:50 - 22:53
    to you next generation and spread the
    word among people.
  • 22:53 - 22:56
    Prophet Moses (pbuh) used to take this
    oath with due planning.
  • 22:56 - 23:03
    Allah asked: Kaalu, and what did your
    ancestors answer to that?
  • 23:03 - 23:06
    Aakraarnea (They) said: “We agree”.
  • 23:06 - 23:14
    keala fashhadoo Then bear witness va ana
    maaakum minash sheahideen (Allah) said:
  • 23:14 - 23:17
    “Then bear witness and I am of the bearers
    of witness with you”.
  • 23:17 - 23:21
    Fa man tavallea baa’da zealika fa uleaika
    humul feasikoon Whoever therefore
  • 23:21 - 23:25
    turns back after this (denies the Messenger
    that will come after the Prophets),
  • 23:25 - 23:28
    they are the Fâsiqûn (those who are not
    in the Way of Allah or
  • 23:28 - 23:30
    have gone out of it, transgressors).
  • 23:30 - 23:34
    Allah reminds them of this is how, they
    were asked to asked
  • 23:34 - 23:38
    to follow the Prophet (pbuh) and help
    him in his cause of religion.
  • 23:38 - 23:41
    This covenant was taken in relation to
    all the Prophets of God,
  • 23:41 - 23:45
    but here in case the Quran is pointing
    out towards Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
  • 23:47 - 23:54
    I reiterate what i mentioned earlier, these
    words Fa man tavallea baa’da zealika
  • 23:55 - 23:59
    that even after this, if someone turns
    back after this (denies the Messenger
  • 23:59 - 24:02
    that will come after the Prophets) then
    there is no doubt that they
  • 24:02 - 24:07
    are the Fasiqun (those who are not in
    the Way of Allah or transgressors).
  • 24:07 - 24:10
    The meaning of Fasiqun in the Quranic
    terminology is disobedient.
  • 24:11 - 24:15
    Even after making it clear and taking the
    Covenant from them regarding the Prophets.
  • 24:15 - 24:18
    Even then you are hell bent towards
    this attitude...
  • 24:18 - 24:23
    If you read Bible you will come to know
    that the Israelites leaders are assembled
  • 24:23 - 24:25
    in a place and different group of people
    join them,
  • 24:25 - 24:29
    they are all assembled in a place of
    worship, Prophet Moses (pbuh)
  • 24:29 - 24:33
    first explained the oath well and only
    after that took their consent.
  • 24:34 - 24:38
    He Instructed them to bear witness and
    know the consequences of this life
  • 24:38 - 24:41
    and the hereafter if any one of them
    turns their back to the covenant.
  • 24:41 - 24:45
    Covenant about the rewards and
    punishments from Allah,
  • 24:45 - 24:48
    about Shariah and Prophets are taken in
    the same way.
  • 24:48 - 24:52
    What a lesson it is for the
    Israelites that Allah
  • 24:52 - 24:57
    through this reference reminds them how he took oath from them and still you are denying that covenant.
  • 24:58 - 25:00
    Afaghaira deenil laahi yabghoona
  • 25:01 - 25:05
    Allah says in the Quran: Prophets used to
    come in the same way;
  • 25:05 - 25:08
    the way in which they have covenants
    with Allah.
  • 25:08 - 25:11
    These prophets came in this manner
  • 25:11 - 25:15
    Prophets came to fulfill the demands of those covenants
    that you promised to Allah.
  • 25:15 - 25:19
    Allah says: since they came with the same
    message and religion,
  • 25:19 - 25:23
    then are they looking for some new
    religion altogether?
  • 25:24 - 25:28
    Are they denying the religion of Allah?
    Now, after explaining the oneness of God,
  • 25:28 - 25:32
    the same truth, book and wisdom.
  • 25:32 - 25:36
    You shouldn't have had a speck
    of doubt about its proof.
  • 25:37 - 25:42
    Now, you denying this religion, so are you looking for
    a different religion than Islam?
  • 25:43 - 25:46
    wa lahooo aslama man fis samaawaati wal ardi
  • 25:46 - 25:51
    even though every thing in the heavens
    and the earth are obedient to Him,
  • 25:52 - 25:56
    taw'anw wa karhanw
    willingly and unwillingly.
  • 25:56 - 26:00
    They are bound by his commands, are
    obedient and
  • 26:00 - 26:01
    are bowed down before God.
  • 26:01 - 26:05
    wa ilaihi yurja'oon and to Him shall they
    be returned.
  • 26:05 - 26:09
    Not only God has authority over all of
    the heavens and the earth,
  • 26:09 - 26:13
    the whole of this universe has submitted
    to God.
  • 26:13 - 26:17
    There is no scope of escaping in the
    world or hereafter.
  • 26:18 - 26:22
    Everything in this universe has bowed
    down before God.
  • 26:22 - 26:26
    Quran states that: you have to turn
    towards God even in the hereafter.
  • 26:26 - 26:28
    There is no other way.
  • 26:28 - 26:30
    Qul aamannaa billaahi
  • 26:30 - 26:35
    The Quran Says: “We believe in Allah,
    we believe in God
  • 26:35 - 26:40
    and in the oneness of God.
    wa maaa unzila 'alainaa
  • 26:41 - 26:44
    We believe in what has been sent
    down to us.
  • 26:45 - 26:50
    This is an occasion in the Quran which expresses splendour.
    This is how the Quran clarified the issue, this is how they were reminded
  • 26:50 - 26:53
    of the oath they took
    regarding the Prophets.
  • 26:53 - 26:57
    Now, the Prophet (pbuh) was commandent
    to announce that 'We believe in God
  • 26:57 - 26:59
    and anything that was sent down to us'.
  • 26:59 - 27:01
    Now, look at how the bloodline of Abraham
    is connected with.
  • 27:01 - 27:03
    wa maaa unzila 'alaaa Ibraaheema
  • 27:03 - 27:05
    We believe in what has been sent
    down to Abraham,
  • 27:05 - 27:07
    wa Ismaa'eela
  • 27:07 - 27:10
    and what has been sent
    down to Ishmael,
  • 27:10 - 27:14
    wa Ishaaqa wa Ya'qooba wal Asbaati
    and what has been
  • 27:14 - 27:19
    sent down to Isaac, Jacob and the
    sons of Jacob,
  • 27:19 - 27:27
    wa maaa ootiya Moosaa wa 'Eesaa and
    we believe in what was given to
  • 27:27 - 27:34
    Moses and Jesus. wan Nabiyyoona
    mir Rabbihim
  • 27:34 - 27:38
    and whatever was sent down to the
    Prophets from their Lord,
  • 27:38 - 27:40
    We believe in that. What do our directive?
  • 27:40 - 27:43
    laa nufarriqu baina ahadim minhum
  • 27:43 - 27:47
    We do not discriminate between
    any of the Prophets.
  • 27:47 - 27:53
    We are not the sort of people who would believe in some
    and not in others. We do not employ
  • 27:53 - 27:56
    this method based on our suspicion.
  • 27:56 - 28:01
    We do not deny any of God’s instruction,
    neither do we refute it in any way.
  • 28:01 - 28:04
    We believe in everything sent down
    to us without any coercion.
  • 28:04 - 28:09
    laa nufarriqu baina ahadim minhum,
    wa nahnu lahoo muslimoon
  • 28:09 - 28:12
    we make no distinction between any
    of them, and we are obedient to Him only.
  • 28:12 - 28:14
    The Quran says: Wa mai yabtaghi ghairal
    Islaami deenan
  • 28:14 - 28:18
    This is Islam, this is the religion
    of Islam.
  • 28:18 - 28:22
    You must understand that Islam is not a
    religion of one Prophet,
  • 28:22 - 28:25
    but all Prophets invited us to the same
    religion of Islam.
  • 28:25 - 28:29
    Islam is the religion of all the Prophets
    including Abraham, Ismael,
  • 28:29 - 28:31
    Isaac, Moses, Jesus,Jacob and the
    sons of Jacob.
  • 28:31 - 28:34
    All the Propehts brought this religion
    of Islam to the people.
  • 28:34 - 28:36
    And we are the believers of Islam.
  • 28:36 - 28:41
    And anyone who wishes to accept
    any other religion apart from Islam.
  • 28:41 - 28:45
    Wa mai yabtaghi ghairal Islaami deenan
    falany yuqbala minhu,
  • 28:45 - 28:48
    And whoever seeks a religion other
    than Islam (Submission to Allah),
  • 28:48 - 28:51
    it shall not be accepted from Him, only
    the religion of Islam is accepted
  • 28:51 - 28:53
    in the court of Allah, Islam is the
    religion of all the Prophets
  • 28:53 - 28:55
    and there is no suspicion about it.
  • 28:55 - 28:57
    There are proper standards of Truth
  • 28:57 - 28:58
    and this religion is based on those
    true facts.
  • 28:58 - 29:02
    If someone wants to abandon this
    religion and bring about a new religion
  • 29:02 - 29:06
    based on his own suspicion, desires and
    innovations then there is no scope
  • 29:06 - 29:08
    of its acceptance in the court of Allah.
  • 29:08 - 29:09
    wa huwa fil Aakhirati minal khaasireen
  • 29:09 - 29:13
    Allah made it clear that Islam is not a
    religion that was introduced
  • 29:13 - 29:17
    by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Try
    to understand the lineage of Islam,
  • 29:17 - 29:19
    it is the religion of all the Prophets.
  • 29:19 - 29:22
    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) only
    came for the Revival of Islam.
  • 29:22 - 29:24
    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) came for
    confirmation of Islam.
  • 29:24 - 29:26
    He came for revival of Islam.
  • 29:26 - 29:28
    He rectified the innovations that were
    instilled in Islam.
  • 29:28 - 29:30
    He has presented the religion of Islam.
  • 29:30 - 29:32
    God’s religion has always been Islam.
  • 29:32 - 29:36
    God never revealed any form of judaism,
    Christianity or Muhammadism,
  • 29:36 - 29:38
    Islam is the only religion revealed by Allah.
  • 29:38 - 29:40
    The religion from God was always Islam.
  • 29:40 - 29:45
    Islam is the religion of Allah. Anyone who
    denies Islam and adopts any other religion,
  • 29:45 - 29:49
    he must know that God will not accept his
    religion, and in the Hereafter
  • 29:49 - 29:50
    he shall be of the losers.
  • 29:50 - 29:54
    Kaifa yahdil laahu qawman kafaroo
    ba'da eemaanihim
  • 29:54 - 29:55
    in the world to come he will
    surely be among the losers.
  • 29:55 - 30:01
    The Quran reprimands muslims
    for seeking guidance for those
  • 30:01 - 30:05
    who disbelieved after professing faith in Allah.
    Compare this verse with the
  • 30:05 - 30:11
    previous verse where people disbelieved
    after their believed.
  • 30:11 - 30:15
    Do the Prophets of God preach people to
    disbelieve once they have already
  • 30:15 - 30:16
    accepted the truth?
    After explicating their attitude,
  • 30:16 - 30:20
    the Quran says (about them): when you
    developed doubts about the religion,
  • 30:20 - 30:21
    when you started creating dissension
    in the religion,
  • 30:21 - 30:24
    When you had doubts with regard to
    the Prophets of God.
  • 30:24 - 30:27
    In reality this is Disobedience once you
    have already accepted the truth.
  • 30:27 - 30:30
    How shall Allah guide
    a person who disbelieved
  • 30:30 - 30:34
    after professing faith in Allah. Muslims wanted
    them to embrace islam.
  • 30:34 - 30:36
    Quran says: But how can Allah guide them?
  • 30:36 - 30:39
    wa shahidooo annar Rasoola haqqunw
  • 30:40 - 30:45
    And they have borne witness that
    the Messenger is true,
  • 30:45 - 30:49
    va shahidoo they know it and their
    hearts bear witness that
  • 30:49 - 30:52
    He the Prophet (pbuh), He is true
    Prophet,
  • 30:52 - 30:55
    Even after believing in him, yet they
    are lying.
  • 30:55 - 31:01
    wa jaaa'ahumul baiyinaat and they have
    clear evidences about the Prophet (pbuh).
  • 31:01 - 31:05
    Quran says: wallaahu laa yahdil qawmaz zaalimeen
  • 31:05 - 31:09
    and Allah does not make the unjust people
    attain Guidance (Hidayet).
  • 31:09 - 31:13
    Allah has a special law according to which
    a person is blessed with
  • 31:13 - 31:17
    His blessing and Guidance. It is not the
    style of God,
  • 31:17 - 31:20
    that people would deliberately disbelieve
    after they have professed faith in Allah,
  • 31:20 - 31:22
    they would indulge
    in suspicions,
  • 31:22 - 31:27
    they would not be willing to hear the truth from God
    and it is not possible that Allah
  • 31:27 - 31:30
    would guide them when they are
    already inventing new religion
  • 31:30 - 31:32
    on their own whims and wishes.
  • 31:32 - 31:36
    The law of God for guidance is that
    the person should be
  • 31:36 - 31:40
    a true seeker of truth. Someone who
    would want to understand the reality,
  • 31:40 - 31:41
    one who is open to facts and buries his suspicion
    and doubts.
  • 31:41 - 31:44
    One who is elevated from his desires
    to learn about reality.
  • 31:44 - 31:46
    Then of course, God blesses with
    his guidance.
  • 31:46 - 31:49
    Quran states: O Muslim! Do you wish
    guidance for them?
  • 31:49 - 31:52
    How shall Allah guide
    a people who disbelieved
  • 31:52 - 31:55
    after professing faith and their hearts had borne
    witness that the Messenger is true messenger of Allah
  • 31:55 - 32:01
    and the clear evidence had come to them;
    and Allah does not make
  • 32:01 - 32:02
    the unjust people attain
    Guidance.
  • 32:02 - 32:03
    Unjust means being unjust towards
    your own self.
  • 32:03 - 32:07
    The Quran used the word 'unjust' in both
    the senses. Here, it is used in this sense.
  • 32:07 - 32:11
    When they rejected the truth.
    One kind of injustice is
  • 32:11 - 32:15
    doing wrong to someone else
    and second, being unjust to yourself.
  • 32:16 - 32:20
    Being unjust to yourself means even after
    believing in the truth,
  • 32:20 - 32:22
    yet you disbelieve in it.
  • 32:22 - 32:26
    The Quran states; Ulaaa'ika jazaaa'uhum
    anna 'alaihim la'natal
  • 32:26 - 32:29
    laahi walmalaaa'ikati wannaasi ajma'een
  • 32:30 - 32:34
    Their punishment is that the curse of
    God and [his] angels
  • 32:34 - 32:36
    and all mankind is on them;
  • 32:37 - 32:42
    By all of mankind, it means that on
    the day of resurrection everyone
  • 32:42 - 32:45
    including the good and bad would
    curse on them.
  • 32:45 - 32:49
    Curse by good believers is obvious,
    but why would the bad too curse on them?
  • 32:49 - 32:52
    They would say that due to them we
    are in this torment.
  • 32:53 - 32:54
    The bad would also curse on them.
  • 32:54 - 32:56
    All of mankind would curse on them.
  • 32:56 - 33:00
    It further clarifies that the extent of
    curse is actually associated
  • 33:00 - 33:01
    with the Day of judgement.
  • 33:02 - 33:04
    Quran says: everyone would curse
    on them.
  • 33:04 - 33:08
    Khaalideena feehaa, and they will abide
    in the curse forever,
  • 33:10 - 33:14
    here it is evident that they would be
    cursed forever in hell.
  • 33:14 - 33:18
    The consequence of this term “Curse”
    is deliberately not express
  • 33:18 - 33:23
    in words because it is its own meaning
    of the term.
  • 33:23 - 33:27
    Khaalideena feehaa laa yukhaffafu
    'anhumul 'azaabu
  • 33:27 - 33:31
    the torment will not be lightened from
    them wa laa hum yunzaroon
  • 33:31 - 33:35
    what you should also understand from the above verse is that this extreme torment
  • 33:35 - 33:36
    would not be lightened from them.
  • 33:36 - 33:37
    They would be in this torment forever.
  • 33:37 - 33:39
    These verses are for whom?
  • 33:39 - 33:42
    Those who have deliberately stood
    in rebellion against the truth even
  • 33:42 - 33:43
    after believing in it.
  • 33:43 - 33:46
    You can find it at any place, only those
    who disbelief after believing
  • 33:46 - 33:47
    are addressed in these verse.
  • 33:47 - 33:51
    Committing a sin, having a misunderstanding
    of something, feigned negligence
  • 33:51 - 33:53
    or intentional connivance are altogether
    a different topic.
  • 33:53 - 33:54
    There are separate laws to deal with
    these things.
  • 33:54 - 33:58
    But when a community or a group comes
    to the stage of disbelieving
  • 33:58 - 34:00
    after they had believed, then they are
    punished for their wrong doing,
  • 34:00 - 34:05
    the curse of God and [his] angels and
    all mankind is on them;
  • 34:05 - 34:06
    they shall abide in it forever.
  • 34:06 - 34:10
    Neither shall their punishment be reduced
    nor shall they be given respite.
  • 34:10 - 34:14
    wa laa hum yunzaroon
    Illal lazeena taaboo mim ba'di zaalika
  • 34:14 - 34:16
    However, There is still some scope.
  • 34:16 - 34:20
    People who repent would save
    themselves from this torment,
  • 34:20 - 34:23
    va aaslahoo and rectify their mistakes,
    they would be safe from this torment.
  • 34:23 - 34:25
    They still have the scope,
  • 34:25 - 34:27
    the Quran says: since the Prophet
    is present among them,
  • 34:27 - 34:29
    they must repent and save themselves
    from this torment which
  • 34:29 - 34:30
    would continue forever.
  • 34:30 - 34:32
    wa aslahoo fa innal laaha Ghafoorur Raheem
  • 34:32 - 34:37
    surely Allah is Oft-Forgiving,
  • 34:37 - 34:41
    He blessings are eternal, He is the
    Most Merciful.
  • 34:41 - 34:44
    Innal lazeena kafaroo ba'da eemaanihim
  • 34:44 - 34:48
    Surely, those who disbelieve after
    their believing,
  • 34:48 - 34:52
    summaz daadoo kufral then increase
    in disbelief,
  • 34:54 - 34:58
    and now when they see their death
    is near and lament
  • 34:58 - 35:00
    for their wrongdoing. lan tuqbala tawbatuhum
  • 35:00 - 35:04
    their repentance
  • 35:04 - 35:06
    will not be accepted
    wa ulaaa'ika humud daaalloon
  • 35:06 - 35:09
    and these are they who are in
    Misguidance.
  • 35:09 - 35:13
    Innal lazeena kafaroo wa maatoo wa hum kuffaarun
  • 35:13 - 35:17
    Surely, those who disbelieve and
    die while they are disbelievers,
  • 35:17 - 35:21
    Quran states that; in order to save
    themselves from this torment,
  • 35:23 - 35:27
    even if they bring the earth full of
    gold as ransom...
  • 35:27 - 35:31
    Innal lazeena kafaroo wa maatoo
    wa hum kuffaarun
  • 35:31 - 35:36
    falany yuqbala min ahadihim mil'ul ardi
    zahabanw wa lawiftadaa bih;
  • 35:36 - 35:40
    even if they bring the the earth full of
    gold as ransom shall not be accepted from
  • 35:40 - 35:44
    any one of them ulaaa 'ika lahum 'azaabun aleemunw
    they shall have
  • 35:44 - 35:48
    a painful torment wa maa lahum min naasireen
  • 35:48 - 35:51
    for them there shall be no helpers.
  • 35:51 - 35:55
    Therefore, it was made clear by the
    Quran, that there is no way that
  • 35:55 - 35:57
    they can be released of this painful
    torment.
  • 35:57 - 36:01
    There can be nothing to give and take
    on the Day of judgement,
  • 36:01 - 36:05
    here in context “earth full of gold ”
    interprets there is no scope
  • 36:05 - 36:08
    of bargain or give and take on
    the Day of judgement.
  • 36:08 - 36:10
    And they expect their elders
    and religious leaders will
  • 36:10 - 36:11
    intercede on their behalf,
  • 36:11 - 36:15
    It is mentioned in the verse that,
    there will be no one for intercession
  • 36:15 - 36:16
    on the Day of judgement.
  • 36:16 - 36:20
    This is the last stage, wherein God
    clarified the principle of repentance.
  • 36:20 - 36:24
    Forgiveness is only for those who
    repent on their wrong doing,
  • 36:24 - 36:26
    for those who try to understand the truth,
    for those
  • 36:26 - 36:28
    who fall astray and ask
    God for forgiveness.
  • 36:28 - 36:32
    Forgiveness is not for those who kept
    disbelieving, those who denied
  • 36:32 - 36:33
    the truth and took this
    denial to the last degree.
  • 36:34 - 36:38
    And only after seeing that
    the torment is near,
  • 36:38 - 36:39
    they asked for repentance to
    save themselves.
  • 36:39 - 36:41
    This is not the the law of Allah.
  • 36:42 - 36:44
    And nothing can be of service to people on the
    Day of judgement.
  • 36:44 - 36:47
    Even the wealth of this world would be
    of no use in the Day of judgement,
  • 36:47 - 36:49
    those who are in this misunderstanding,
    should come out of it.
  • 36:50 - 36:55
    wa maa lahum min naasireen for them
    there shall be no helpers.
  • 36:55 - 36:59
    Listen to the simple translation to
    these verses.
  • 36:59 - 37:03
    [On the other hand], those who sell
    the covenant of God
  • 37:03 - 37:07
    and their own oaths for a trivial price shall
    have no share in the world to come.
  • 37:07 - 37:11
    and Allah will not speak to them and
    He will not look at them
  • 37:11 - 37:12
    on the Day of Resurrection.
  • 37:12 - 37:16
    And will not exonerate them and for
    them there is a painful torment.
  • 37:18 - 37:22
    And most surely there is a party of them
    (people of the Book) who distort the Book
  • 37:22 - 37:28
    with their tongues that you may consider
    it to be of the Book and it is not
  • 37:28 - 37:32
    from the Book and they say that it is
    from Allah even though
  • 37:32 - 37:38
    it is not from Allah; and they speak
    a lie against Allah knowingly.
  • 37:38 - 37:42
    It is not (possible) for any human
    being that Allah should give
  • 37:42 - 37:46
    him the Book and the Wisdom and
    the Prophet-hood,
  • 37:46 - 37:49
    then he should say to the mankind:
  • 37:50 - 37:54
    “Be servants to me apart from
    Allah” but rather say:
  • 37:54 - 37:58
    'as learned men of religion by virtue
    of your constant study and teaching
  • 37:58 - 38:02
    of the Book onto others’, “be Godly
    servants” (devote yourselves to God)”.
  • 38:02 - 38:04
    And neither would He enjoin you that
    you should take the angels
  • 38:04 - 38:06
    and the prophets for lords;
  • 38:06 - 38:10
    Would He enjoin you with the unbelief
    after you became Muslimoon (submitted ones).
  • 38:10 - 38:15
    When Allah took the Covenant of the
    Prophets, (He said):
  • 38:15 - 38:19
    "I have given you the Book and the
    Wisdom, then a Rasul (Messenger)
  • 38:19 - 38:23
    comes to you confirming that which is
    with you (Books Allah had given to you),
  • 38:23 - 38:26
    you must definitely believe in him and
    you must definitely help him”.
  • 38:26 - 38:32
    Allah said: “Do you agree and
    accept (My Oath)”? (They) said:
  • 38:32 - 38:36
    “We agree”. (Allah) said: “Then bear
    witness and I am of the bearers
  • 38:36 - 38:37
    of witness with you”.
  • 38:37 - 38:41
    Whoever therefore turns back after
    this (denies the Messenger
  • 38:41 - 38:43
    that will come after the Prophets),
    they are the Fasiqun
  • 38:43 - 38:45
    (those who are not in the Way of Allah
    or have gone out of it, transgressors).
  • 38:45 - 38:48
    Is it then other than Allah’s Religion
    that they seek?
  • 38:48 - 38:52
    And to Him submit whoever is in the
    heavens and in the earth willingly
  • 38:52 - 38:55
    and unwillingly, and to Him shall they
    be returned.
  • 38:55 - 39:00
    Say: “We believe in Allah and in what
    has been sent down to us,
  • 39:00 - 39:04
    and what was sent down to Abraham,
    Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the sons of Jacob,
  • 39:05 - 39:10
    and what was given to Moses and Jesus
    and to the Prophets from their Lord;
  • 39:10 - 39:15
    We do not make any distinction between
    any of them,
  • 39:15 - 39:17
    and to Him (Allah) we have surrendered”.
  • 39:17 - 39:20
    And whoever seeks a religion other
    than Islam (Submission to Allah),
  • 39:20 - 39:25
    it shall not be accepted from him, and in
    the Hereafter he shall be of the losers.
  • 39:25 - 39:29
    How shall Allah guide (deliver to Hidayet)
    a people who disbelieved
  • 39:29 - 39:34
    after their believing and they had
    borne witness that the Messenger
  • 39:34 - 39:37
    is true and the clear evidences had
    come to them;
  • 39:37 - 39:41
    and Allah does not make the unjust
    people attain Guidance (Hidayet).
  • 39:42 - 39:46
    Their punishment is that upon them (Fasik)
    is the Curse of Allah and the angels
  • 39:46 - 39:47
    and of the mankind, all together.
  • 39:47 - 39:50
    Abiding in it (Curse) forever; the torment
    will not be lightened from them
  • 39:50 - 39:52
    and they will not be looked at.
  • 39:52 - 39:58
    Except those who afterwards repent
    and improve (cleanse their souls’ hearts),
  • 39:58 - 40:02
    then surely Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most
    Merciful.
  • 40:02 - 40:05
    Surely, those who disbelieve after
    their believing,
  • 40:05 - 40:07
    then increase in disbelief, their
    (those who
  • 40:07 - 40:12
    fall into Misguidance for the third
    time) repentance will not be accepted
  • 40:12 - 40:15
    and these are they who are in
    Misguidance.
  • 40:15 - 40:19
    Surely, those who disbelieve and die
    while they are disbelievers,
  • 40:20 - 40:24
    the earth full of gold shall not be
    accepted from one of them
  • 40:24 - 40:27
    even if he should offer to ransom
    himself with it;
  • 40:27 - 40:31
    these it is who shall have a painful
    torment and for them there
  • 40:31 - 40:32
    shall be no helpers.
  • 40:32 - 40:35
    I say this saying of mine, and I
    seek forgiveness from Allah
  • 40:34 - 40:36
    for me and for you and for all Muslims.
