In our last sitting, we stopped at ayah 116

Allah tala is refuting the people
- who accuse him of begetting offspring
-Allah doesn't want us to be desensitized to the lies about Him

And they say: "The Most Gracious (Allâh) has begotten a son (or offspring or children) [as the Jews say: 'Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say that He has begotten a son ['Isa (Christ) A.S.], and the pagan Arabs say that He has begotten daughters (angels, etc.)]." (88) Indeed you have brought forth (said) a terrible evil thing. (89) Whereby the heavens are almost torn, and the earth is split asunder, and the mountains fall in ruins, (90) That they ascribe a son (or offspring or children) to the Most Gracious (Allâh). (91) But it is not suitable for (the Majesty of) the Most Gracious (Allâh) that He should beget a son (or offspring or children). (92) [Maryam 19 : 88-92]

ALLAH is refuting those who accuse HIM
of begetting offspring
- you are living in a society where people claim that ALLAH has a son
- so much so that you have become desensitized

And they (Jews, Christians and pagans) say: Allah has begotten a son (children or offspring) . Glory be to Him (Exalted be He above all that they associate with Him). Nay, to Him belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth, and all surrender with obedience (in worship) to Him 2:116

ALLAH revealed 19:88-22

- because ALLAH does not want you to become desensitized to the lies of the kuffar;
- saying that ALLAH has fathered a son, etc
- indeed, the kuffaar utter lies against Allah

How can you become desensitized to the lies of the kuffar?
- its not befitting of a Muslim that you should become desensitized
- you always bear in mind that the kuffar lie on ALLAH

1. Having a son
2. Repenting
3. Making taubah
4. Losing a wrestling match w/ Yacoob
5. Coming from the belly of a woman

-the kuffaar speak of ALLAH in a manner that is inappropriate
-ALLAH says in Surah 37:180-182 >>

Glorified is your Lord, the Lord of Honour and Power! (He is free) from what they attribute unto Him! (180) And peace be on the Messengers! (181) And all the praises and thanks are to Allâh, Lord of the 'Alamîn (mankind, jinn and all that exists). (182) [As-Saaffat 37:180-182]


- Nur, Abraham, Musa, Jesus and Muhammad (saws)
- they suffered for tawheed more than anyone else

Noah gave dawah for 950 years
- and all the people did was to ridicule his dawah
- when he built the ship, they said "I thought you were a farmer,
- now you’re a carpenter? have you switched professions?"

ALLAH said in Surah Yasin
-that every time ALLAH sends a prophet
-all the kuffar do is laugh at the prophet

Alas for mankind! There never came a Messenger to them but they used to mock at him. (Ya-Seen 36:30)


- It is called psychological warfare
- they want us to suffer from inferiority complex
- for us to have low self esteem
- they want you to lose your morale
- we should not tolerate jokes
- you shouldn’t tolerate jokes at all
- the joke you tolerate is the one in which nobody is laughing at anybody
- those who laugh last, they are the ones who laugh the best

O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; Nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former, Nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames... [Al-Hujraat 49:11]

ALLAH revealed this ayah

- because the pagan Arabs used to laugh at Bilal because he was black
- and at Salman al Faarisi because he was Persian

Who told you that you’re allowed to laugh
- at someone because of their physical features?
- You’re not allowed to laugh at ALLAH's creation
- In whatever form He willed, He put you together. (Al-Infitar 82:8)

You must accept how ALLAH created people

"I saw myself (in a dream) entering Paradise, and behold! I saw Ar-Rumaisa', Abu Talha's wife. I heard footsteps. I asked, Who is it? Somebody said, 'It is Bilal ' Then I saw a palace and a lady sitting in its courtyard. I asked, 'For whom is this palace?' Somebody replied, 'It is for 'Umar.'

- you’re not allowed to accept European , western values

I intended to enter it and see it, but I thought of your ('Umar's) Ghira (and gave up the attempt)." 'Umar said, "Let my parents be sacrificed for you, O Allah's Apostle! How dare I think of my Ghira (self-respect) being offended by you? [al-Bukhari]

- its so bad that some black men and women even bleach their skin
- to make their skin lighter
- ALLAH refutes them in Surah 6:101

He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have children when He has no wife? He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything (Al-Anaam 6:101)


“Allah created four things with his hands, the Throne, Pen, Adam and Paradise, then for the rest of the creation he said “Be” and it became” (Ibn Jareer in his ‘Tafseer’ (23/185), Daarimee in ‘Radd Alal Mareesee’ (p.90), Baihaaqee in ‘Asmaa Was-Sifaat’ (p.233))

- The soul of Adam was blown into him and angels were commanded to bow down to him
- whenever ALLAH wants to create something, HE says 'kun fayakun'
- "Be and it is"
- and he was placed in heaven to live [not jannat ul Firdous]

Verily, His Command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says to it, "Be!" and it is! (Ya-Seen 36:82)

Those w/o knowledge

-wonder why Allah tala doesn't speak to them face-to-face
-their hearts are sealed
-people want to see ALLAH face to face, but this is not possible
-because the human being is to weak to see ALLAH face to face
-its not possible, you would be destroyed
-if ALLAH should expose HIMSELF to you face to face

-when Musa asked ALLAH if he could see HIM, ALLAH said he could not see him
-(Musa could not see ALLAH)

And when Mûsa (Moses) came at the time and place appointed by Us, and his Lord (Allâh) spoke to him, he said: "O my Lord! Show me (Yourself), that I may look upon You." Allâh said: "You cannot see Me, but look upon the mountain; if it stands still in its place then you shall see Me."... [Al-Araf 7:143]

Musa was asked to look at the mountain
to see if the mountain could stand
-when ALLAH appeared to the Mountain, it went to dust, and Musa fell unconscious

So when his Lord appeared to the mountain[], He made it collapse to dust, and Mûsa (Moses) fell down unconscious. Then when he recovered his senses he said: "Glory be to You, I turn to You in repentance and I am the first of the believers." (Al-Araf 7:143)

“Allaah created three things with His Hand: 1. He created Adam with His Hand 2. He wrote the Tawraah with His Hand and 3. He planted Firdous with His hand" [Collected by ad Daylami, It was also collected by ad Darqutni in ‘As Sifaat’ P. 26 #28 and Abu Ash Shaikh in ‘Al ‘Udhmah’: 5/1555]

To make a request that you want to see ALLAH face to face

- this request is ridiculous
- the kuffar made similar requests; the hearts of the kuffar are all alike

And those who have no knowledge say: "Why does not Allâh speak to us (face to face) or why does not a sign come to us?" So said the people before them words of similar import. Their hearts are alike, We have indeed made plain the signs for people who believe with certainty. (Al-Baqara 2:118)

- doesn’t be surprised if the kuffaar deal with you in the same way
- as they did with the prophets Musa, Isa, Muhammad PBUH etc
- the hearts of the kuffar are all alike
- in the time of the prophet Saleh, people cheated on the scales
- does this not take place today?
- in the time of Noah, people used to worship idols
- do not people worship idols today? as in India, Japan, etc
- in the time of the prophet Lut, people were homosexuals
- do we not have homosexuals today?

- in New York, San Francisco you cannot tell the difference
- between men and women
- there are so many homosexuals there
- ALLAH will destroy these gay cities one by one
- ALLAH will destroy these cities as HE did Sodom and Gomorrah
- in the time of Musa, people used to dabble in black magic
- do we not have people dabbling in black magic today?

Those who disbelieve from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn, were not going to leave (their disbelief) until there came to them clear evidence ( Al-Bayyina 98:1)

Never will the Jews and Christians relinquish their kufr

-until we the Muslims bring them the hujjah
-98:6 touched a nerve w/ the kuffaar @ Belmarsh Prison (UK)

Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islâm, the Qur'ân and Prophet Muhammad (SAW)) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures. (Al-Bayyina 98:6)

Surah Muhammad, Surah Taubah, Surah Anfal:
the kuffaar hate these Surahs
- they think these Surahs are politically incorrect
- they believe it spreads "terrorism"

Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides whom ye may not know but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. (Al-Anfal 8:60)

- they want to tell us what to teach in the universities
- and they want us to avoid teaching these certain Surahs

And (remember) when the disbelievers plotted against you (O Muhammad SAW) to imprison you, or to kill you, or to get you out (from your home, i.e. Makkah); they were plotting and Allâh too was plotting, and Allâh is the Best of those who plot. (Al-Anfal 8:30)


-Shaikh's university might even study the same Surahs he did back then 25+ years ago
-the kuffaar say the Imams who come to UK or France
-will be trained according to what is politically correct
-according to the British establishment
-work permits won't be given w/o going thru
-this training because they think their prior training is [radical]

Their hearts are alike, We have indeed made plain the signs for people who believe with certainty. (Al-Baqara 2:118)


-it wasn't just in time of Prophet Yusuf
-he rejected Zulaikha's indecent proposal
-this story of sensual harassment takes place now
-history repeats itself so what happened then happens now
-we're to take lessons from all these Surahs

-Musa and Al-Khidr = we had 25 lessons from that story
-Can and Abel = another fatal attraction story
-these things happen now
-3 stories from Qur'an re: fatal attraction:
-Yahya, Yusuf and the nephew of the murdered uncle

-people carry out fatal attraction because [example] his wife moves on from him and their great s-x life
-he doesn't want someone else to enjoy her body
-he can't handle it so he kills her or her lover or all three

-he's heard their stories and crimes
-he's taken lessons from them
-history repeats itself so we can learn from them

-he had a god complex
-the movie SUPERMAN is about him having a god-complex

ASABIYYA [racism]
-people try to reject Allah tala based on racism
-Abu Bakr said if Allah didn't give us the story of Sodom and Gomorrah [gay city]
-if it wasn't revealed to me,
-I'd never know men would stoop so low to use another man for s-x
-it only took Muhammad (saws) 23 years to bring Arab Peninsula under Islam
-Arabs are not homos-xuals
-Abraham taught them about Allah and built the kaba for them
-Rasool's father was named Abdullah because of Prophet Abraham [they had hope]
-the kuffaar today are - they don’t' believe in Allah
-you can't be an agnostic Muslim
-one of the conditions of Shahadah is yaqeen (certainty)
-so you can't be an agnostic Muslim

1. Knowledge of the Shahadah
2. Yaqeen
-- You cannot doubt your Shahadah
3. Believe in your heart and testify w/ your tongue [Abu Taalib’s plight]
4. Surrender to Qur’an and Sunnah
5. Sidq [condemns all shades of falsehood]
6. Singularity of devotion
7. Al walaa wal baraa
[loving and hating for the sake of Allah swt]

-so even a kaafir prays
-the kaafirs of Qureshi was not confused about Allah,
-they did not practice homos-xuality,
-they were brave, they looked after their guests
-they have proper adab [kaafir of today might not offer you
-any food when you sit w them while they are eating]

The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) went out on the day of Badr along with three hundred and fifteen (men). The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: O Allah, they are on foot, provide mount for them; O Allah they are naked, clothe them; O Allah, they are hungry, provide food for them. Allah then bestowed victory on them. They returned when they were clothed. There was no man of them but he returned with one or two camels; they were clothed and ate to their fill. Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar, Sunan Abu Dawud: Book 14, No 2741


Therefore remind (men) in case the reminder profits (them) (Al-Ala 87:9)
