Bismillah, we begin Tafseer Surah Baqarah, in earnest

And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) and (his son) Isma'il (Ishmael) were raising the foundations of the House (the Ka'bah at Makkah), (saying), "Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us. Verily! You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knower."(2:127)

IBRAHIM and his son building the KA’BAH

-they didn't assume Allah 'tala would accept their dua
-so we're to pray and ask Him to accept our duaas
-Ibrahim asked Allah to accept his effort of building the kab'ah

The deeds of the kaafiroon (disbelievers), murtadoon (apostates), munafiqoon (hypocrites) and mishrikoon (pagans) are never accepted

-the faasiqoon (Muslim with weaknesses) salah and fasting are not rejected
-the deeds of the mushrik are not accepted either
-only the deeds (duaas and fasting) on the sincere believers are accepted
-those who drink alcohol have no salah for 40 days/ nights

"Verily, Allah accepts only from those who are Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V.2:2)."(5:27

-people who are unscrupulous in their deeds, everything about them is haraam
-he raises his hands and says "ya rabb" but that is where he stops;
-his deeds were not accepted
-are you eating halal food?
-are you rejecting the taghoot or in bed w/ them?
-do you practice al walaa wal baraa?
-where do you think Allah is? on the Arsh, or not?
-what is your opinion on democracy?
-what is your aqeeda?
-do you spy for the mi5, CIA or FBI?
-do you beat your wife or ignore your parents?

IF YOUR DUAAS ARE NOT ANSWERED, ASK YOURSELF THOSE QUESTIONS

ARE YOU DOING DAWAH TO PROMOTE A GROUP OR ALLAH TALA?

ONLY THE PRAYERS / DUAAS / DEEDS / SALAH OF THE MUTAQEEN ARE ACCEPTED

TABLIGHI JAMM'AH: they believe Allah is everywhere but see 20:5

The Most Beneficent (Allah) Istawa (rose over) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). (20:5)


-their walaa is not to Allah tala but to group (groupism) - asabiyya
-they turn their back on Qur'an and Sunnah instead of their group

Sayyidina Anas Radiallahu anhu reports: “I once said: Ya Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam pray to Allah to make me of those whose Duas are directly accepted.” Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam replied: “O Anas, keep your earnings Halaal and pure and your Duas will be accepted because if a man places one morsel of Haraam food in his mouth, his duas will not be accepted for a period of forty days.” [Muslim]

3 PEOPLE WILL BE SHOWN THEIR DEEDS

-the scholar: he will be told you sought knowledge to called great scholar
-the spender: he will be told you're a liar,
-you didn't spend to be help but to be called kind hearted
-the mujahid: he will be told you lied, as you fought to be called brave heart

THEIR INTENTION WAS NOT CORRECT ... they did not have the proper ikhlaas (sincerity)

IF YOU'RE DOING GOOD DEEDS TO SHOW OFF - YOU WILL BE DISGRACED BY ALLAH 'TALA

Whoever seeks knowledge to argue with the scholars, or to show off with the ignorant people, and attracts the faces of the people towards him, Allah would enter him into the Hellfire." [Hasan - Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah]

PRIDE and ARROGANCE will always be exposed

Verily, Allah accepts only from those who are Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V.2:2)."(5:27

ONLY THE PRAYERS / DUAAS / DEEDS / SALAH OF THE MUTAQEEN ARE ACCEPTED

-the sincere believers
-the people of taqwah

I heard the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, say: "Actions are (judged) by motives (niyyah), so each man will have what he intended. Thus, he whose migration (hijrah) was to Allah and His Messenger, his migration is to Allah and His Messenger; but he whose migration was for some worldly thing he might gain, or for a wife he might marry, his migration is to that for which he migrated." [Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

WHEN THE PROPHET TOLD THE SAHABAHS THIS HADITH ...

-he only told one: UMAR
-he didn't spread this to others
-the one who migrated to Madinah to find a girl found one
-the most sacred place on earth, Makkah became darul harb
-"if my people didn't drive me out, I would never leave you"

CAN MAKKAH BECOME DARUL HARB? OH YES
-if you studied seerah, you'd know!
-it was darul harb in the past and Madinah was darul Islam

BATTLE OF BADR
-the people of darul Islam and darul harb
-Abu Jahl was the commander for the Makkkans
-the Rasool commanded Madinah (on the 17th of Ramadan)
-he said, "if you allow this small band to be destroyed,
-you will never be worshipped on this earth"
-the battle between BAUTIL and HAQQ
-the BATTLE OF TRUTH
-Abu Jahl also made a dua ... did he prayed to Allah,
-"if I was good to my family, give me victory"

And (remember) when Shaitan (Satan) made their (evil) deeds seem fair to them and said, "No one of mankind can overcome you this Day (of the battle of Badr) and verily, I am your neighbour (for each and every help)." But when the two forces came in sight of each other, he ran away and said Verily, I have nothing to do with you. Verily! I see what you see not. Verily! I fear Allah for Allah is Severe in punishment."(8:48)

THE BATTLE OF BADR : http://www.muslimyouthmusings.com/the-battle-of-badr/

"I FEAR ALLAH"
- the shaitan said this and it was a lie; many people say it but don't mean it
-he worships his evil and corrupted desires

EVERY KAAFIR IS A HYPOCRITE AND EVERY HYPOCRITE IS A KAAFIR

Allah) said: "What prevented you (O Iblis) that you did not prostrate, 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 shaitain is a racist, a Mu`tazilite (rationalist), a liar, pretender,
and also a kaafir and he is a complete package: he is ungrateful, wasteful, (wasting energy, time )


Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatin (devils), and the Shaitan (Devil - Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord.(17:27)

Did you realize that Allah tala used the word, KAAFIR to mean UNGRATEFUL

-kaafirs are ungrateful: they use us and then dump us
-they use us for contacts, money, s-x (zina)
-they dump us after they ingratiate themselves!

INGRATIATE = means to make someone fall in love w/ you and trust you
-you see someone w/ something you want, so you make them get close to you
-afterward, they get what they want and dump us
-this word is used in psychology everyday

WHEN IBRAHIM and his son built the KA’BAH
-they didn't take for granted Allah would accept their humble effort
-so they prayed and asked for Him (swt) to accept their dua

ALL HEARING and ALL KNOWING
-deaf people can not learn
-a good listener is a good learner

And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) and (his son) Isma'il (Ishmael) were raising the foundations of the House (the Ka'bah at Makkah), (saying), "Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us. Verily! You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.(2:127

MIGHT WITHOUT WISDOM IS A RECIPE FOR DISASTER

MIGHT WITH MERCY IS APPRECIATED BY THE RECIPIENT

-if you can take revenge and you do not because you exercised mercy
-the recipient of the mercy will appreciate it

WHEN THE RASOOL CONQUERED MAKKAH, he was joined in by tribe after tribe
-there were only 2,000 people living there and they expected him to take revenge
-they killed Sumaya and her husband, Yasir
-they put an embargo against Madinah for 3 years
-they put a rotten intestine on the back of the Prophet when he went down in sajdah
-but did he take revenge? No ...... he said only 4 words:

"GO: YOU ARE FREE"

-it's 4 words in Arabic and English ...
-and they were SO surprised and the WHOLE OF MAKKAH EMBRACED ISLAM

WHEN A MAN HAS POWER AND HE CAN TAKE RETRIBUTION BUT HE FORGIVES THE OPPRESSOR
-the mercy is appreciated by the recipient of the mercy

The conquest of Makkah took place in Ramadan, as well

ARABS ARE NOT BLOOD-THIRSTY: they are very merciful

SHAIKH IN SAUDI ARABIA
-when he was studying in university, he made mistakes
-he was always forgiven for his mistakes

SHAIKH IN THE UK

-Shaikh saw Jamaicans go to Morocco to get married
-these brothers were still smoking ganja (some sort of weed)
-some stopped coming to his study circle because they said Shaikh was too harsh re: the ganja

SHAIKH IN UNIVERSITY
-Shaikh read very rare books, not found in English
-he read Ahadith in Arabic
-he wanted to borrow a book but he was not allowed to take it from the library
-he tried anyway to take the book out but it had a chip in it .. ha!
-beep went off and the librarian said I TOLD YOU
-YOU CAN'T TAKE THE BOOK FROM THE LIBRARY

***the name of the book: Ad Dar al Katni

-when the beep went off, the librarian could have told the dean
-but he/she did not because: Arabs are merciful

WHEN WE DO ACTS OF IBAADAH, DON'T EXPECT THAT ALLAH TALA WILL ALWAYS ACCEPT IT
-says a duaa that it will be accepted

And by the Bait-ul-Ma'mur (the house over the heavens parable to the Ka'bah at Makkah, continuously visited by the angels); (52:4)

There is another KA’BAH on top of our KA’BAH

-70,000 angels go there to make hajj everyday
-the KA’BAH is in the heaven and the Rasool saw it when he went there
-on his journey to [al Isra al miraj]

Who laid the foundation stone for the KA’BAH in the dunya? ANGELS
Who laid the foundation stone for the KA’BAH in MADINAH? THE RASOOL (saws)
Who laid the foundation stone for the KA’BAH (al Aqsa) in the Jerusalem? ANGELS


Glorified (and Exalted) be He (Allah) [above all that (evil) they associate with Him] [Tafsir Qurtubi, Vol. 10, Page 204] Who took His slave (Muhammad SAW) for a journey by night from Al-Masjid-al-Haram (at Makkah) to the farthest mosque (in Jerusalem), the neighborhood whereof We have blessed, in order that We might show him (Muhammad SAW) of Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, lessons, signs, etc.). Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. (17:1)

The two Qiblas were united and 40,000 Sahabahs attended

Abu Hurairah said about our beloved Prophet: “On the night Allah’s apostle was taken to the journey (Al-Isra Wal-Miraaj), two cups, one containing wine and the other milk, were presented to him at Jerusalem. He looked at it and took the cup of milk. Gabriel said “Praise be to Allah who guided you to Al-Fitrah (the right path) if you had taken the cup of wine, your nation would have gone astray.” (Sahih Bukhari (Arabic/English) Vol.7 pg.338)

"MY UMMAH WILL NEVER UNITE UPON AN ERROR"

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Allah will never allow my Ummah to unite upon misguidance and incorrect beliefs. Allah’s mercy, blessings and protection are with the largest group of Muslims. And he who deviates from this largest group of Muslims will be thrown into Hell.” (Tirmidhi)

WHY ARE WE THE BEST UMMAH:

-on the night of al isa wal miraj, Muhammad (saws) chose the MILK
-after Ibrahim built the KA’BAH, he prayed for their efforts to be accepted
-he asked for their progeny to become Muslims only

"Our Lord! And make us submissive unto You and of our offspring a nation submissive unto You, and show us our Manasik (all the ceremonies of pilgrimage - Hajj and 'Umrah), and accept our repentance. Truly, You are the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful. (2:128)

-show us also the rituals of hajj and forgive us our sins
-they praised Him (SWT) for being so merciful
-they asked for the blessings on the bloodline of Ishmael
-Ishmael helped Ibrahim build the KA’BAH
-the Arabs come from the bloodline of Ishmael
-so most Arabs are Muslim and believe in "La ilaha illalla"
-he asked also to raise up a MESSENGER [which is greater than a prophet]
-his duaa went on to ask for also for Him (swt)
-to be sure the bloodline would be taught al Qur'an
-and they'd be purified from superstition

Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own (and indeed Allah answered their invocation by sending Muhammad Peace be upon him ), who shall recite unto them Your Verses and instruct them in the Book (this Qur'an) Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own (and indeed Allah answered their invocation by sending Muhammad Peace be upon him ), who shall recite unto them Your Verses and instruct them in the Book (this Qur'an)(2:129)

-also to be purified from omens [this is shirk]
-Muslims believe in QADR not omens

"Whoever cancels one's intention to do something because of attiyarah (an evil omen), that one has committed shirk" (Imam Ahmad)

-belief in tawheed and omens can NOT go hand in hand

and Al-Hikmah (full knowledge of the Islamic laws and jurisprudence or wisdom or Prophethood, etc.), and sanctify them. Verily! You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise."(2:129)

NOTHING CHANGES DESTINY OTHER THAN DAILY DUAA

"Nothing could change the Qadar except Du`a’." (Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 5, Hadith no. 277; Sunan At-Tirmidhi, Vol. 3, Hadith no. 139; and classified as Hasan (good) Hadith by Al-Abaani in Sahih Al-Jami` Hadith no. 7687)”

Allah blots out what He wills and confirms (what He wills). And with Him is the Mother of the Book (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz) (13:39)

WE ONLY GET WHAT WE ASK FOR IN OUR DUAAS

I am as My servant thinks I am. I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; and if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of …al-Buhkari, Muslim, at-Tirmidhi and Ibn-Majah) Imam Nawawi’s 40 Hadith Qudsi]

IF YOU THINK ALLAH WILL NOT REMOVE YOUR DIRE STRAITS: HE WON'T

DON'T INSULT ALLAH WHEN YOU HAVE A CALAMITY / CATASTROPHE

As for man, when his Lord tries him by giving him honour and gifts, then he says (puffed up): "My Lord has honoured me."16. But when He tries him, by straitening his means of life, he says: "My Lord has humiliated me!"(89-15,16)


ALLAH TALA ANSWERED THE DUAA OF IBRAHIM
-and then sent us MUHAMMAD (pbuh)

-and we were given a bonus that he is a MESSENGER TO ALL OF MANKIND
-and we were given a bonus that he is a MERCY TO ALL OF MANKIND
-see 21:107

And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) not but as a mercy for the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (21:107)


-to man and jinn, as well
-this is why we don't make istinja w/ bones
-because it is the food of the jinn

THE ANSWERED DUA:
1. RAISED UP MUHAMMAD AS A MESSENGER
2. RAISED HIM UP AS A MERCY TO ALL OF MANKIND

And who turns away from the religion of Ibrahim (Abraham) (i.e. Islamic Monotheism) except him who befools himself? Truly, We chose him in this world and verily, in the Hereafter he will be among the righteous(2:130)

The first to be clothed on that day will Ibrahim a.s (Bukhari)

THE 1ST PERSON TO BE CLOTHED ON JUDGMENT DAY WILL BE: IBRAHIM

THE RELIGION OF IBRAHIM IS only La ilaha illalla [see 3:67]

IBRAHIM WAS NEITHER A JEW OR CHRISTIAN BUT HE WAS A TRUE / UPRIGHT MUSLIM
-he was not a pagan

Ibrahim (Abraham) was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was a true Muslim Hanifa (Islamic Monotheism - to worship none but Allah Alone) and he was not of Al-Mushrikun (3:67)

Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrahim (Abraham) and those with him, when they said to their people: "Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allah, we have rejected you, and there has started between us and you, hostility and hatred for ever, until you believe in Allah Alone," (60:4)

IBRAHIM'S RELIGION IS KUFR BIT TAGHOOT / MONOTHEISM / LOVING AND HATING FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH

-this is what's known as MILLAT IBRAHIM
-it's beautifully written
-nothing to deserves to be worshipped beside Allah
-to reject faith in false deities

http://www.kalamullah.com/Books/MillatIbraheem.pdf

THE PROBLEM W/ THE UMMAH TODAY

-the shaikhs say to believe in Allah [la ilaha]
-but they are not saying to reject the taghoot [illalla]
-the haqq is distinct from the bautil

There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (2:256)

-truth and falsehood can not be hand in hand

TO BELIEVE IN ALLAH IS NOT ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU A MUSLIM: YOU MUST REJECT THE TAGHOOT

THE ONLY ARMY WE CAN JOIN IS THE MUJAHIDEEN ...

Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitan (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan).(4:76)

THE BELIEVERS FIGHT FOR ALLAH AND THE INFIDELS FIGHT FOR THE TAGHOOT

AL WALAA WAL BARAA STUNNED SO MANY MULANAS WHO NEVER HEARD THIS OR FIQHUL WAAQI

The best of the actions is to love for the sake of Allah and to hate for the sake of Allah. Abu Dawud 40:4582

WHEN TRUTH COMES TO A COMMUNITY, IT SPLITS THEM INTO 2 HALVES

WE ARE NOT TO GO AGAINST THE IJMAA3 OF THE UMMAH:
1. THE QUR'AN IS PROTECTED
2. WE ARE NOT TO BELIEVER MUHAMMAD (pbuh) IS NOT THE LAST PROPHET

And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell - what an evil destination. (4:115)
