At our last dars, we stopped at ayah 87

And indeed, We gave Musa (Moses) the Book and followed him up with a succession of Messengers. And We gave 'Îsa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Ruh-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. 2:87

-- the reason for sending many messengers is that people forget
-- insaan means = human being and also the one who forgets
-- because people always forget Allah sent many messengers after Musa

And remind (by preaching the Qur'an, O Muhammad), for verily, the reminding profits the believers. 51:55

-- we were commanded by Allah to remind the believers,
-- as it can be profitable for the believers
-- human nature is that we forget
-- Allah told you whenever you lend money
-- it should be written down and has 2 witnesses
-- make 4 copies of this transaction

“then a man and two women, such as you agree for witnesses, so that if one of them (two women) errs, the other can remind her. And the witnesses should not refuse when they are called (for evidence). You should not become weary to write it (your contract) whether it is small or big, for its fixed term, that is more just with Allah; more solid as evidence, and more convenient to prevent doubts among you, Baqarah 22:42

-- Al-Baqarah 22:82is the longest ayah in the Quran. Why?
-- because people are killed over money all the time; money changes people
-- when people are tested with money, many times they fail miserably
-- when it is a present trade which you carry out on the spot among yourselves,
-- then there is no sin on you
-- if you do not write it down.
-- but take witnesses whenever you make a commercial contract
-- let neither scribe nor witness suffer any harm, but if you do (such harm)
-- it would be wickedness in you
-- so be afraid of Allah; and Allah teaches you.
-- And Allah is the All-Knower of each and everything.

3 fitnah: power women money

-- some Muslims are crooks
-- they borrow money and do not pay it back as if to say
-- they do not believe in judgment day
-- if you follow this instruction there would be less killing for money
-- even tho you might hear a topic before..
-- sometimes you appreciate when the topic is repeated
-- why? because you heard it but you forget details

And We gave 'Îsa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Ruh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael] Al-Baqarah 2:87

-- Jesus was able to tell a man what he had for breakfast
-- or what he hoarded in his house..
-- some people embrace Islam when they see a miracle,
-- but others remain a kaafir with all these proofs
-- miracles that Jesus got he only had 12 disciples
-- you are thinking he should have had thousands of followers
-- the Jews who he was sent to did not accept his message,
-- even tho he was sent to the Jews
-- the pagans of Makkah approached Muhammad saw, they wanted to see a miracle
-- Muhammad told them to witness that the moon split
-- they said he worked magic on them
-- when someone wants to remain a kaafir he will find a thousand excuses

Reasons why people remain kaafir:
1) pride
2) following ancestors are among the reasons
3) they are addicted to evil and corrupted desires
-- these people find it difficult, even impossible to embrace Islam
-- they are addicted to evil and corrupted desires
-- like a lamb to the slaughter do not underestimate your 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. 23:71

Ash-Shura He hath ordained for you that religion which He commended unto Noah, and that which We inspire in thee (Muhammad), and that which We commended unto Abraham and Moses and Jesus, saying Establish the religion, and be not divided therein. Dreadful for the idolaters is that unto which thou callest them. Allah chooseth for Himself whom He will, and guideth unto Himself him who turneth (toward Him). (13)


-- this ayah tells you that the evil desires of men are quite lethal they refuse to take Shahadah

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. 23:71

-- hijab , being disinherited ... are also reasons that people do not take Shahadah
-- the kaafir media promotes the behaviour of displaying your beauty
-- a kaafir boy or girl whose parents are rich
-- they will lose out on inheritance if they come to Islam
-- shaytan tricks people. that they should die on the religion of their ancestors
-- any one who dies and his last words were laa ilaha ilaa Allah will go to paradise
-- Allah revealed an ayah 28:56

Verily you (O Muhammad ) guide not whom you like, but Allah guides whom He wills. And He knows best those who are the guided. 28:56

-- to comfort the prophet when abu Taalib died on kufr
-- the Shia claim that abu Taalib died as a Muslim Sunnis,
-- know that he died as a kaafir
-- this ayah came down for the prophet on the death of his uncle abu Taalib

Verily you (O Muhammad ) guide not whom you like, but Allah guides whom He wills. And He knows best those who are the guided. 28:56

And We gave 'Îsa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Ruh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael] 2:87


-- the angel Gabriel is the only holy spirit that we know about we do not believe in any other holy spirit

Verily, We have sent it (this Qur'an) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree).

--and what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is?
--the majority of scholars say that the night of power is on the 27th night of Ramadan
-- serenity is the sign you look forward to on the night of power ( lailatul qadr )

And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is? The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allah in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months). 97:1-5

-- the scholars say that the night of power is the 27th Ramadhan
-- Pentecostal church, they dance around and listen to music
-- and they speak another language
-- "speaking in tongues" - they say that this is angelic language
-- and that they have the Holy Spirit, but indeed they are possessed by jinn
-- they throw them selves down and speak in tongues,
-- they claim they are possessed by the "holy spirit"
-- this is a lie: the angel Gabriel is the holy spirit
-- and they have been possessed by the jinn
-- there are three reasons why jinn possess people
-- they were dispatched by someone who likes to create mischief to possess people

The 3 reasons why jinns possess people
(1)mischievous
(2) fall in love with you
(3) they were dispatched to go out to possess people

-- they fall in love with a human or they are mischievous jinn
-- the Sufis say they can remove the jinn when they are possessed
-- they use jinns to get rid of the jinn ( this is haraam )
-- when you are possessed with jinn , you must deal with the jinn in a halal way
-- whenever the jinn works for a person
-- they want you to do sacrifice and commit jinn
-- those who expose the devil worshippers, they do not show their faces,
-- they know they will be killed
-- the Rasool got hold of a jinn

Narrated Abu Huraira: "The Prophet said, "Last night a big demon (afreet) from the jinns came to me and wanted to interrupt my prayers (or said something similar) but Allah enabled me to overpower him. I wanted to fasten him to one of the pillars of the mosque so that all of you could See him in the morning but I remembered the statement of my brother Solomon (as stated in Quran): My Lord! Forgive me and bestow on me a kingdom such as shall not belong to anybody after me (38.35)." The sub narrator Rauh said, "He (the demon) was dismissed humiliated." (Bukhari Book #8, Hadith #450m)

-- the dominion over the jinn was exclusive to Sulaiman (as)
-- if the help the jinn gives you is unsolicited ( you did not ask for the help )
-- you are allowed to take the help
-- the Sahabah in the battle field, Jinn came and told them that the battle was won
-- sometimes the jinn become greedy, they ask for human sacrifice
-- donkeys pray when they see jinns

-- it is easy to know if black magic is in the country : you hear donkeys praying : children disappearing

And We gave 'Îsa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Ruh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael] 2:87
-- how is it relevant to the tafseer : Allah spoke about the holy spirit in 2:87

The Prophet said, "When you hear the crowing of cocks, ask for Allah's Blessings for (their crowing indicates that) they have seen an angel, And when you hear the braying of donkeys, seek refuge with Allah from Satan for (their braying indicates) that they have seen a Satan." (Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 522)

-- it was the holy spirit that brought the news that Mary would have a boy ( isa alayhe salam )

She said: "How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, nor am I unchaste?" 19:20

-- this is the conversation between Mary and the holy spirit
-- harlot : whore * a woman who is sexually active outside of wedlock
-- if you have a daughter or sister who is sexually active
-- and she is not married, it means she is a harlot
-- Angel Gabriel is the holy spirit : and there is no other holy spirit

"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)

-- approx 70 messengers were killed by the Jews.. the Jews killed Zachariah and they killed Yahya; they killed Yahya because a girl wanted to marry her uncle : Yahya opposed : the girl danced for the king, the king promised anything she wanted : the girl asked for the head of Yahya : the king then got the head of Yahya on a silver platter for her

-- it is permissible to break a promise,
-- if it is unethical for you to keep the promise
-- i.e if you say you will marry someone,
-- then you find that they do not pray, you should break your promise
-- when you say wallahi, then break it
-- you have to pay expiation for breaking your wallahi ( oath )

Allah will not punish you for what is unintentional in your oaths, but He will punish you for your deliberate oaths; for its expiation feed ten Masakin (poor persons), on a scale of the average of that with which you feed your own families, or clothe them or manumit a slave. But whosoever cannot afford (that) then he should fast for three days. That is the expiation for the oaths when you have sworn . Al Maida 5:89 -- this is the expiation

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


-- the scholars are the inheritors of the prophets
-- they will inherit the honour of the prophets : not entirely
-- we are not Shia, we do not say our scholars are infallible
-- because the scholars are the inheritors of the prophets
-- they will suffer : incarceration : deportation and assassination

“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

-- people do not like to be exposed, and they do not want you to preach the haqq.. Ibn Taymiyyah said :

And they say, "Our hearts are wrapped (i.e. do not hear or understand Allah's Word)." Nay, Allah has cursed them for their disbelief, so little is that which they believe. 2:88
-- what is the message? : tawheed :

And when there came to them (the Jews), a Book (this Qur'an) from Allah confirming what is with them [the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)], although aforetime they had invoked Allah (for coming of Muhammad )in order to gain victory over those who disbelieved, then when there came to them that which they had recognised, they disbelieved in it. So let the Curse of Allah be on the disbelievers. 2:89

-- they used to invoke Allah and pray for Muhammad to come
-- they didn’t believe in him because of race : this is complete racism
-- they chose the hell over paradise in the name of racism
-- the holy spirit is angel Gabriel
-- and the promised comforter is Muhammad salah Allahu alayhe wasalam

Al Baqarah 2:146 Those to whom We gave the Scripture (Jews and Christians) recognise him (Muhammad or the Ka'bah at Makkah) as they recognise their sons. But verily, a party of them conceal the truth while they know it - [i.e. the qualities of Muhammad which are written in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)].

Saffiyah
-- she was a Jew who reverted
-- she was calm
-- the prophet married a Jewish woman, who became Muslim
-- people were shocked,. it was Bilal who bought Saffiyah to the prophet
-- she was calm the other was hysterical
-- the Rasool married Saffiyah because she was calm

The prophet asked Bilal, "did Allah take mercy from your heart"?
--because he bought them the route so they would see their men who were massacred
--Saffiyah said she saw the full moon land in her lap in her dream
--some people asked her, why she became such a good Muslim, she said she was eavesdropping on the conversation of her grandfather and uncle, they said Muhammed was the prophet they were looking for, but they would never follow him because he was an Arab not a Jew

-- she said that day eeman entered her heart
-- Muslims give more dawah to Christians
-- there are Jews who will take Shahadah , maybe we should pay more attention to Jews
-- Saffiyah said, that it was easy for her to become a Muslim
-- Allah said "I chose who to bless"

But Allah chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty. 2:105

-- you cannot tell Allah who to bless : you see a person become a scholar ,
-- you cannot ask why Allah chose to give him knowledge
-- you have to surrender to Allah’s Will ( Qadr Allah )
-- if you know that you cannot tell Allah who to bless
-- you won’t have the disease of envy in your heart

Will ( Qadr Allah )
-- if you know that you cannot tell Allah who to bless : you won’t have the disease of envy in your heart
-- Shaikh introduced a Muslim woman to a kaafir : the Muslim woman is younger than the Kaafirah and she has one eye .. yet she found a husband : the Kaafirah did not yet find a husband

-- why? : you can not tell Allah who to bless :: But Allah chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty. 2:105

How bad is that for which they have sold their ownselves, that they should disbelieve in that which Allah has revealed (the Qur'an), grudging that Allah should reveal of His Grace unto whom He wills of His slaves. So they have drawn on themselves wrath upon wrath. And for the disbelievers, there is disgracing torment. 2:90

-- they want to tell Allah who to reveal the Quran to : they refuse to embrace Islam
-- they realize that Muhammad was the prophet, yet they refuse to follow him, in the name of racism?
-- racism is the creed of Iblees, he said he would not bow to Adam

(Allah) said: "What prevented you (O Iblis) that you did not prostrate yourself, when I commanded you?" Iblis said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." 7:12

The first racist was Ibliss himself
-- they, the Jews, turned their backs on the paradise, and jump into the hell fire, all in the name of racism
-- Iblees was the first racist : You are not allowed to believe in the superiority : except by taqwa
-- Abu Lahab / Abu Jahl were Arabs but how can they be better than you?
-- if a white Muslim, does more salah and Sadaqah, they are better than the black, or the Arab
-- the best of you is 49:13

Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. he is one of the Muttaqun (the pious. ]. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware. 49:132

-- if a woman fasts in Ramadhan and the man doesn’t
-- the woman is better : even tho the man is masculine and she is feminine

-- this ayah uproots from the Muslim community, regionalism, tribalism, nationalism, racism (s-xism )?
-- if I am from new York I am better than the one from new Orleans
-- to think you are better than another person because of the region you come from
-- this ayah gets rid of male chauvinism , and sexism .. and all the other isms and schisms

Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. he is one of the Muttaqun (the pious. ]. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware. 49:13

-- the Arabs are Semite : for someone to hate Arabs means - anti Semitic
-- they are so anti Semitic, they refuse to follow Muhammad as he was an Arab
-- yet they cry anti Semitic
-- even tho they are 100% sure Muhammad was a prophet
-- yet they cry anti Semitic
-- even tho they are 100% sure Muhammad was a prophet
-- they cry holocaust: yet they carry out holocaust against the Palestinian children
-- this is hypocrisy
-- people do not like the truth: most people are hypocrites
-- they pretend to be what they are not
-- they try to assassinate your character
-- kill you when they cannot assassinate your character
