We last stopped at Al-Baqarah 2:92

Al-Baqara 2:92 And indeed Mûsa (Moses) came to you with clear proofs, yet you worshipped the calf after he left, and you were Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers).

The worst type of dhulm is shirk

The Nine Signs of Musa : these are the Bayyina :

1. rod turning in to a snake
2. the radiant hand of Prophet Musa
3. year of drought
4. the flood
5. human and animal pandemic
6. locusts
7. lice
8. frogs
9. blood


1) the rod of Musa : he didn’t run away from the snake : it is natural instinct to be afraid of snakes: when a man tried to steal the treasures of the kaaba Allah used a snake to protect those treasures

-- if you have a business : you employ people as cashier
-- they put money in their pockets! Even Muslims will steal your money
-- weak Muslims
-- 2 things that people cannot control : money and women !
-- these two things go side by side : no money no honey!
-- if you don’t have money, no woman will date you
-- people steal because they want to use the money to chase girls(women)
-- men who live of a woman : in us they are called "freeloaders"
-- the woman goes to work and he stays at home

Women’s Conference in South Africa:
-- when shaikh told the women that it was compulsory for their husbands
-- to have sex with them once every 4 days
-- Umar ibn al Khattab passed the fatwa
-- shaikh’s phone was swamped with calls, because they were Tablighi men
-- and they went away for 4 months!
-- a man could be the treasurer of the masjid,
-- but he steals from the zakah funds
-- how could a Muslim steal from zakah)!!?? Audhubillah
-- the worker who works as a cashier buys a first class plane ticket !
-- don’t they believe in Allah and Judgment Day ?
-- the only currency Allah will accept is your good deeds
-- you will have to pay them your salah, zakah, sawm !
-- because of this you will be saying "nafsi nafsi" : "myself myself"
-- on Judgment Day you will run away from your mother, your family

That Day shall a man flee from his brother, 35. And from his mother and his father, 36. And from his wife and his children. 37. Everyman, that Day, will have enough to make him careless of others. (Surah Abasa 80:35:37)

QUESTION:

Why will you run away from your mother, who gave birth to you, fed you and gave you all you needed ? she will approach you on Judgment Day and say, "oh my dear son, give me one of your Ramadhan"

The prophet told Aisha
-- on judgment day, everyone will be naked
-- Aisha was shocked, she asked wouldn’t men and women be looking at each other ?
-- a blazing fire, 70 times hotter than then fire you use to cook
-- you don’t know if you are going to hell or not
-- how could you pay attention to the naked men or women !
-- it makes you wonder if people who steal believe in Allah and Judgment Day
-- when the wife of the shopkeeper stays in the shop,
-- the take home is $1000 average a day
-- but when a brother works in the shop he only hands over $500 a day
-- it is clear that he is stealing
-- you will have to give it back to them on Judgment Day: Give up stealing !
-- you will have to give them your salah, sawm , hajj, umrah, zakah.......
-- the people used to steal the treasures of the kaaba
-- so , Allah sent a snake to protect the treasures

The nine signs Musa gave the Pharaoh:

1. rod turning in to a snake
2. the radiant hand of Prophet Musa
3. year of drought
4. the flood
5. human and animal pandemic
6. locusts
7. lice
8. frogs
9. blood


-- Allah split the sea and drowned Firawn and saved you
-- when you were hungry manna and quail

He is jealous of his honour, I am more jealous than he and God is more jealous than I. Sahih Muslim No. 3571

-- no one is more jealous than Allah:
-- He does not like when people worship false deities
-- He likes to be worshipped Alone !

And (remember) when We took your covenant and We raised above you the Mount (saying), "Hold firmly to what We have given you and hear (Our Word). They said, "We have heard and disobeyed." And their hearts absorbed (the worship of) the calf because of their disbelief. Say: "Worst indeed is that which your faith enjoins on you if you are believers." (2:93)

-- when you do haraam as a kaafir, your heart will become attached to the haraam
-- but when the Muslim does haraam,
-- it bothers him: your heart will not become attached
-- a kaafir’s heart is attached to their way of life
-- kaafirs say that freedom and democracy are their values they die for this!
-- they die for the "freedom" of worshipping the shaytaan !!
-- the kufaar hate each other, yet they unite against Islam
-- Islam is coming to take away from them their desires, drugs and fornication ..
-- to disrupt their lifestyle, their "fun" - if they are having fun
-- why are STD's rife in their community
-- you can become rich just by selling tablets for their STDs
-- why is it you die from heart, liver, kidney failure..
-- why are you suffering from insomnia : and living on Prozac !

"But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur'an nor acts on its orders, etc.) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection." (Surah At-Taahaa 20:124)

-- this life of stress and distress..

He will say: "O my Lord! Why have you raised me up blind, while I had sight (before)." Ta-ha 20:125

Allah) will say: "Like this, Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) came unto you, but you disregarded them (i.e. you left them, did not think deeply in them, and you turned away from them), and so this Day, you will be neglected (in the Hell-fire, away from Allah's Mercy)." (Ta-ha 20:126)


So in the dunya
--they turned away from Allah
--so Allah will treat them the same in the aakhirah

They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them. Verily, the hypocrites are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (Surah At-Tawbah 9:67)

-- you cannot say that Allah forgets: the translation is
-- YOU neglected Allah : So Allah Neglected you!
-- be careful how we translate the Quran

And He found you unaware (of the Qur'an, its legal laws, and Prophethood, etc.) and guided you? (Ad-Dhuha 93:7)
-- when we read the Quran : how do we translate the ayah : Ad-Dhuha 93:7
-- we cannot say that the prophet was astray
-- the Rasool wasn’t happy with what he saw in Makkah: he went in the cave
-- and was contemplating upon how he could save his people, from this dire situation
-- so Allah told you in Surah Baqarah 2:93
-- when a person is a kaafir, his/her heart becomes addicted to what they are doing
-- the older the kaafir is, the more difficult it is for a kaafir to become a Muslim

Intolerable for the Mushrikun , is that to which you (O Muhammad ) call them... (Ash-Shoora 42:13)

-- it is intolerable, for them to abandon their way of life
-- and practice what you are calling them to

And most of mankind will not believe even if you desire it eagerly. (Surah Yusuf 12:103)

The majority of people in the world
-- will never believe, even tho you the Muslim, wants to give Shahadah to everyone!.
-- you are only allowed to give dawah to the person who shows interest in Islam
-- the ones who are adamant in their kufr: leave them to hell

Therefore remind (men) in case the reminder profits (them). (Al A3laa 87:9)

-- when you give dawah to the kaafir who is adamant in kufr
-- it’s like you are throwing away silver and gold to the swine
-- you pick the people who you give the dawah to:
-- only give dawah to the person who shows interest in Islam
-- you will be wasting your time, and the wasters are the brothers of the shaytan :

Lo! the squanderers were ever brothers of the devils, and the devil was ever an ingrate to his Lord. (Al-Isra 17:27)

-- after the Jews saw so many signs: and still they didn’t believe
-- they were ungrateful al-Adiyat 100:6-8

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) (al Adiyat 100:7, 8)

-- he is vicious, unscrupulous, and atrocious in his quest to get rich
-- the end justifies the means!
-- why don’t you want to die, if you know that paradise is only for you ( the Jews)

Say (unto them): If the abode of the Hereafter in the providence of Allah is indeed for you alone and not for others of mankind (as ye pretend), then long for death (for ye must long for death) if ye are truthful. (2:94)

But they will never long for it, because of that which their own hands have sent before them. Allah is aware of evil-doers. (Al-Baqarah 2:95)


-- they have a siege on Gaza: the Flotilla ship was going to break
-- the siege on Gaza, bringing them aid, medicine and food, they BOMBED THE SHIP
-- the Jews bombed the school and killed children
-- they said there were Islamic militants were hiding in that school
-- how did Allah confound them in the Quran : Allah said >
-- you claim that you are going to paradise : WISH FOR DEATH

Say (unto them): If the abode of the Hereafter in the providence of Allah is indeed for you alone and not for others of mankind (as ye pretend), then long for death (for ye must long for death) if ye are truthful. (Al-Baqarah 2:94)

But they will never long for it, because of that which their own hands have sent before them. Allah is aware of evil-doers. (Al-Baqarah 2:95)


-- then Allah told you: They (the Jews)
-- don’t want to die because of their evil handiworks
-- you can see their evil handiworks in Occupied Palestine
-- they are doing to the Muslims what Hitler did to them
-- why are they talking about the holocaust

And thou wilt find them greediest of mankind for life and (greedier) than the idolaters. (Each) one of them would like to be allowed to live a thousand years. And to live (a thousand years) would be no means remove him from the doom. Allah is Seer of what they do. (2:96)

Shaikh in UK:

--Stanford Hill in London: Never seen so many Volvos in his life
-- The Jews all drive Volvo !
-- the Quran tells you why the Jews like to drive Volvo:
-- everything is in the Quran !:

We have neglected nothing in the Book (of Our decrees). (Al-Annam 6:38)

-- it’s the safest car for you to crash in !
-- it has a reinforced chassis like no other car
