You Only Oppress Yourselves - Sh Faisal

Tafseer Surah Baqarah: (You Only Oppress Yourselves)
Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(morning dars 5.10.11)

--Pharaoh was so intoxicated with power that he claimed that, "I am your Lord the most high"

Saying: "I am your lord, most high" (79:24)

He (pharaoh) took it for himself the attribute of ALLAH ('ala) the most high

There are 3 types of complex
1) inferiority complex
2) superiority complex
3) God Complex

Pharaoh had God Complex
--Man is so weak yet he wants people to believe he is God
--Man is so stupid, he can't control his own bowels and yet
--he wants people to believe he is God

Then he gathered (his people) and cried aloud, (23) Saying: "I am your lord, most high", (24) 79:23-24

Pharaoh gather experts to interpret his dream
--they interpreted that a Hebrew boy would be born who would kill him
--so he started killing Hebrew boys
--the mother of Moosa was inspired (ilhaam) by ALLAH to
--put the baby in a basket and leave in the river
--ilhaam means you inspired by ALLAH to do something wonderful
--not just pharaoh; past and present tyrants kill kids to hang on to power
--the Hindus of India kill kids
--the Jews bombed the jahiliyiah camp and kill kids
--senior Bush Killed over 1 million kids in Iraq though sanctions

By the snorting coursers, (1) Striking sparks of fire (2) And scouring to the raid at dawn, (3) Then, therewith, with their trail of dust, (4) Cleaving, as one, the centre (of the foe), (5) Lo! man is an ingrate unto his Lord

And lo! he is a witness unto that; (7) And lo! in the love of wealth he is violent. (8) Knoweth he not that, when the contents of the graves are poured forth (9) And the secrets of the breasts are made known, (10) On that day will their Lord be perfectly informed concerning them. (11)
Hindus kill their own kids to save themselves from Dowry
Pharaoh took his Shahadah when he was drowning but it was rejected by ALLAH

27:14 - And they denied them, though their souls acknowledged them, for spite and arrogance. Then see the nature of the consequence for the wrong-doers! (14)

Man is ungrateful to his Lord
--the minute Musa (as) turned his back, the Jews reverted to polytheism
By the snorting coursers, (1) Striking sparks of fire (2) And scouring to the raid at dawn, (3) Then, therewith, with their trail of dust, (4) Cleaving, as one, the centre (of the foe), (5) Lo! Man is an ingrate unto his Lord And lo! he is a witness unto that; (7) And lo! in the love of wealth he is violent. (8) Knoweth he not that, when the contents of the graves are poured forth (9) And the secrets of the breasts are made known, (10) On that day will their Lord be perfectly informed concerning them. (11) Surah 100: 1-11

In love of wealth man in mendacious
--Surah 100:6 Lo! man is an ingrate unto his Lord
--Hindus / Buddhists like the Jews: they worship idols

Do not entertain the idea that its only the Jews who are ungrateful to their Lord
--or that only they worship idols
--The Hindus and the Buddhist as well
--the agnostics and the atheists worship false deities, as well
--his evil and corrupted desires

45:23 - Hast thou seen him who maketh his desire his god, and Allah sendeth him astray purposely, and sealeth up his hearing and his heart, and setteth on his sight a covering? Then who will lead him after Allah (hath condemned him)? Will ye not then heed? (45:23)

When your heart is sealed: kufr/hypocrisy cannot come out and
--Islam / eeman cannot enter
--he does not do this until Allah gives you ample opportunity to hear / accept the truth
--Allah (tala) is not an oppressor

61:5 - And (remember) when Moses said unto his people: O my people! Why persecute ye me, when ye well know that I am Allah's messenger unto you? So when they went astray Allah sent their hearts astray. And Allah guideth not the evil-living folk. (5)

--and when you decide not to accept the truth, Allah seals the heart
Allah forgave the Jews so they cud come back to the haqq
--He gave them the book (furqan and guidance); this book was the Torah

"By Allah, if my brother Musa were alive, and witnessed my Prophethood, he would have no choice but to follow me" (Ad-Darimi).

The Torah was the furqan at the time of Musa (as)
--today the only furqan / guidance accepted by Allah ‘tala is the Qur’an
Musa (as) was upset and said those who didn’t worship the golden calf behind my back
--when I went to Egypt, Mt. Sinai to receive revelation,
--they should kill those who worshipped the golden calf

2:54 - And when Moses said unto his people: O my people! Ye have wronged yourselves by your choosing of the calf (for worship) so turn in penitence to your Creator, and kill (the guilty) yourselves. That will be best for you with your Creator and He will relent toward you. Lo! He is the Relenting, the Merciful. (54)

This was his way to surgically remove shirk from the society
--he said that only by allowing yourself to be killed, will you stand a chance w/ Allah
--The Shariah of Musa (ea0 was harsh
--they said we wont believe in Allah until we see Him with our own eyes
--so Allah ‘tala struck them down

3:110 - Ye are the best community that hath been raised up for mankind. Ye enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency; and ye believe in Allah. And if the People of the Scripture had believed it had been better for them. Some of them are believers; but most of them are evil-livers. (110)

Musa (as) pleaded with Allah that these were his most righteous followers yet
--they were so weak in eeman!

The Prophet said, "The best people are my contemporaries (i.e., the present (my) generation) and then those who come after them (i.e., the next generation)." Sahih Bukhari Volume 8. Hadith number 436

--the ummah of Muhammad is the best ummah raised up for mankind
--when the Jews were commanded to fight the mushrik, they said:
--“go you and your lord and fight them we will sit here and not obey you, but
--Muhammad's followers said, “do whatever you want with us, we will obey you!
--you fight and we will fight alongside of you”

Allah was offended by the Jews disbelief and shirk
Atheism preponderates in the persona of the Jew
--the crimes they commit against our brother/sisters in Palestine is proof:
--that they are atheists
--the moment Musa (as) went away from them,
--they dumped monotheism and became mushrik, worshipping the golden calf
--they hated Jibrael because they accused him of being an informant (a supergrass)

2:98 - Who is an enemy to Allah, and His angels and His messengers, and Gabriel and Michael! Then, lo! Allah (Himself) is an enemy to the disbelievers. (2:98)

We say to the people of Denmark, who use cartoon to insult the Prophet (saws):
--you actually insulted ALLAH TALA
--Jibrael was only carrying out the commands of Allah so when you accuse / insult Jibrael:
--you are accusing / insulting Allah because Mohammed (pbuh) was sent by ALLAH
--to be our last prophet

63:8 - They say: Surely, if we return to Al-Madinah the mightier will soon drive out the weaker; when might belongeth to Allah and to His messenger and to the believers; but the hypocrites know not. (8)

ALLAH tells us that he has Izza (honour) he gives to whom he wills

--ALLAH says Muhammad (pbuh) has the honour;
--the cartoons does not take away the honour
--before the angel blows the trumpet every home will say the name Muhammad
Hosni Mubarak thought Jews can give izza look at his destination
--same with Zainul Abdin, of Tunisia, who thought French will give Izza
--Al Muizz is attribute of ALLAH (He gives izza to whom He wills)
--the Jews rebelled against ALLAH at every opportunity
--they got the kaafir only oppress himself

ALLAH ‘tala does not oppress anyone

When you follow the Shariah of ALLAH, obtain from alcohol, become circumcised,
--stay away from adultery = you’ll be saving yourself
--you oppress yourself if you do not obey ALLAH and does not follow Shariah
--when you become pious, you do not benefit ALLAH; you only benefit yourself
--when you become rebellious and worship false idols,
--you do not oppress ALLAH; you only oppress yourself

2:57 - And We caused the white cloud to overshadow you and sent down on you the manna and the quails, (saying): Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you - they wronged Us not, but they did wrong themselves. (57)
