-85- Every Disappointment in a New Appointment

Tafseer Surah Baqarah: Every Disappoint is a new Appointment
by Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

(morning dars: 6.18.11)

And indeed, We gave Moosa (Moses) the Book and followed him up with a succession of Messengers. And We gave Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Rooh-ul-Qudus (Jibrael (Gabriel)

Is it that whenever there came to you a Messenger with what you yourselves desired not, you grew arrogant? Some, you disbelieved and some, you killed. Surah al Baqarah, 2:87

Therein descend the angels and the Rooh (Jibrael (Gabriel)) by Allah’s Permission with all Decrees, Surah al-Qadr, 97:4


Human nature:
--we easily forget the messages people brought
--insaan also means - the one who is always forgetting,
--from the word 'nasiaa' which means - to forget
--can you believe someone borrowing 50,000 USD
--but they only "remember" borrowing 5,000 !!
--the Qur'an says to call 2 witnesses when you're borrowing/loaning money
--the longest ayah in the Qur'an talks about: money
-- maybe he is a con artist - he could take away a zero ..
--since Muslims have become weak in eeman, we must write down loans

O you who believe! When you contract a debt for a fixed period, write it down. Surah al-Baqarah, 2:282

2 reasons to write down loans:
--people might not be sincere, but they will change when they see money
--so they might be a crook
--or we are forgetful
--you are also forgetful, you cannot remember
--either how much you really borrowed or lent

The one who lends is called the creditor
--the one who borrowers is called the debtor
--make 4 photocopies of any debts
--people forget so they can have lapses in their faith

The first people to commit shirk were the people or Nuh
--they suffered drought or were inflicted w/ diseases so they listened to the shaitan
--he comes to us when we are desperate
--when we're in excruciating pain, shaitan comes to us because we're vulnerable then

People look at the sun and say 'without the sun, we'd freeze to death'
--so they worship the CREATION instead of the CREATOR

Praise Allah tala that created the sun, the moon and the stars:
--worship the CREATOR not His creations

What did false deities do for you?

This is the creation of Allah. So show Me that which those (whom you worship), besides Him have created. Nay, the Zalimoon (polytheists, wrongdoers and those who do not believe in the Oneness of Allah) are in plain error. Surah Luqman, 31:11

insaan = human being
insaan = also means the one who keeps forgetting

People come to this room every day: why?
--because they will forget
--someone we hear an ayah we heard 100x before but it sounds
--as if we never heard it before

Muhammad (SAW) is no more than a Messenger, and indeed (many) Messengers have passed away before him. If he dies or is killed, will you then turn back on your heels (as disbelievers)? And he who turns back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah, and Allah will give reward to those who are grateful. Surah, ale-Imran, 3:144

"It's the first time in my life I'm hearing this ayah!" ~ said Umar

"Remind the believers because it is beneficial for them"

So after Musa, came a lot of Messengers because: WE FORGET

--the purpose is to REMIND THE BELIEVERS
--people forget
--so when you lend money: WRITE IT DOWN

Loaning money:
--write it down
--maybe the man is a crook
--or maybe he is forgetful
--he might think he borrowed 5,000 USD when he really borrowed 50,000 USD
--"the reminder profits the believer"

And remind (by preaching the Quran, O Muhammad SAW) for verily, the reminding profits the believers. Surah adh-Dhariyat, 51:55

”None of you will truly believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself” (Al-Bukhari)

--the above Hadith is used to endorse polygamy
--so sisters will accept polygamy
--some sisters prefer their sisters commit zina w/ a kaafir than to say,
--"marry my husband"
--they prefer to see their sister apostate from Islam
--and they say, 'if she was a true Muslim, she wouldn't apostate'
--why didn't the sister practice what the Rasool (saws) said

“Allaah has decreed jealousy for women and jihad for men, so whoever bears that with patience out of faith and in the hope of reward will have a reward like that of a martyr.” This hadeeth was classed as da’eef (weak) by al-Albaani in Da’eef al-Jaami’ al-Sagheer, No. 1626.

"The worst halal is divorce" was permitted to say this to encourage us to do righteous acts of ibaadah


“Marry and do not divorce for verily divorce causes the ‘ Arsh (throne of Allah) to shake” (Muhtar al-Ahadith al-Nabawiyya, 228 BUT is a fabricated and da’eef (weak)

Is it that whenever there came to you a Messenger with what you yourselves desired not, you grew arrogant? Some, you disbelieved and some, you killed. Surah al-Baqarah, 2:78

The story of Prophet Yahya and Salome:
--a dancer, perhaps Salome, was asked to dance by King Herod to dance
--she asked what will you do for me? He said 'anything'
--She said, 'bring me the head of Yahya on a silver platter'
--He didn't want to do it but he did because he made her a promise
--He had Yahya's head cut off and brought to her
--immediately afterward, he lost his kingdom

ALLAH TALA'S JUDGMENT IS SWIFT

All historians say it would have been better to break his promise to the girl
--than chop off the head of an innocent man

Some promises are halal to break:
--if the fulfilling the promise becomes unethical
--ie you tell your husband you'll never leave him,
--but he apostates or drinks or such
--so it might not look good on your character but you are allowed to break it
--ie maybe you promised to marry a brother, but you learned something disturbing
--you're not permitted to fulfill a promise if you realize it is unethical to do so
--the modus operandi of the Jews is to kill prophets

“The scholars are the inheritors of the prophets.”[Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, Nasa’i, Ibn Maja, Ahmad, Ibn Hibban, and others]

What can my enemies do to me? I have in my breast both my heaven and my garden. If I travel they are with me, never leaving me. Imprisonment for me is a chance to be alone with my Lord. To be killed is martyrdom and to be exiled from my land is a spiritual journey ~ Ibn Taymiyyah

Why do Jews kill prophets?
--Because the prophet brought a message that didn't coincide w/ their evil and corrupted desires

Shaikh in the UK:
--he had halaqas once a week every week
--but now it is every day, twice a day
--the kuffar's oppression did not oppress the ummah
--Shaikh's dawah continues strong (ameen)
--the reception in the UK was so strong, they might not have let him tour the African countries

EVERY DISAPPOINTMENT IS A NEW APPOINTMENT

Example:
When Bilal proposed to a girl and she said yes, he would say ALHUMDULILLAH
--but when she said no, he would say ALLAHU AKBAR
--we need to follow his example

Verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) will die and verily, they (too) will die. Surah az-Zumar, 39:30

We are only permitted to mourn for 3 days unless it is a husband,
--then 4 months and 10 days
--and for a child, it is supposed to just be 3 days
--Allah tala knows best

Why is your hair gray when you are only in your 20s?

The best people are those living in my generation, and then those who will follow them, and then those who will follow the latter. Then there will come some people who will bear witness before taking oaths, and take oaths before bearing witness." Bukhari, Book 57, No. 3

--you can dye your hair if your husband or father permits you
--to pierce your hair or your nose ... same thing .. need permission
--a Muslim woman is never free - she is always in the guardianship of a man

Shaikh and a wali
--Shaikh appointed a brother to be a wali for a sister

"If they dispute, then the sultan (man in authority) is the wali of those who have no wali." [Dawud 2078, Narrated 'Aisha , also related by Tirmidhi and others. Tirmidhi said, this is a Hasan Hadith. Ibn Majah and Imam Ahmad, Hadith number 1880; also in Salih al-Jaami', Hadeeth number 7556.)

--but the wali fell in love with her so Sh had to appoint another wali
--it is better if the wali is older so he doesn't fall in love w/ the girl
--sisters need a wali before and after the marriage
--he should be someone who is respected
--he is there to keep the husband in check (in case, let's say husband is violent)
--if the sister is weak, she can suffer domestic violence
--when a woman has a weak wali, she suffers domestic, financial, emotional abuse
--if your wife pays the bills in the home, she does charity, as it's not her duty

In Islam, a woman is never free, she always needs a wali
--especially now, in these last days
--so many Muslims have become Munafiqoon

So, the Jews killed the prophets because their message didn't coincide w/ their corrupted desires

And if the truth had been in accordance with their desires, verily, the heavens and the earth, and whosoever is therein would have been corrupted! Nay, We have brought them their reminder, but they turn away from their reminder. Surah al- Mumenoon, 23:71

Good example:

--when Salome wanted Yahya dead so he couldn't interfere w/ her marriage to King Herod
--this is an example of 'fatal attraction' because it involved murder and s-x
--Yahya was a victim of fatal attraction
--Abel was a victim of fatal attraction
--1st murder [Abel] was because of fatal attraction

We can't be on the same level of a prophet where honor is concerned
--we will suffer the same persecutions tho
--incarceration, deportation, assassination
--if you're a shaykh who believes in Shariah and Jihad, the kuffar want to kill those shaykhs
--if we believe in tawheed hakimiyya, al walaa wal baraa and such = the same thing

"The Scholars are the Inheritors of the Prophets" [Abu Dawud 3/3634]

In Nigeria, the Muslims were selling Shaikh's banned CDs and making money
--because the titled it "BANNED IN THE UK"

“Verily the most painful punishment on the Day of Judgment are those who kill the prophets or people murdered by the prophet or kill one of his parents, and making statues and knowledgeable people who do not benefit from his knowledge." - (Reported by Baihaqi)

--so what good did the UK do by putting Shaikh in jail?
--a Nigerian said to Shaikh that he'd be in London in a few months
--Shaikh didn't think he'd get into the UK but
--there he was one day in the front line of the khutbah
--the UK thinks they have 'James Bond' as the most intelligent detectives
--but this brother used his cousin's passport
--because the white man sees BLACK AS BLACK
