Surah al Baqarah
Ayahs 92 – 103
And Moses had certainly brought you clear proofs. Then you took the calf [in worship] after that, while you were wrongdoers.
Then you took the calf [in worship]
while you were wrongdoers
And [recall] when We took your covenant and raised over you the mount, [saying], "Take what We have given you with determination and listen." They said [instead], "We hear and disobey." And their hearts absorbed [the worship of] the calf because of their disbelief. Say, "How wretched is that which your faith enjoins upon you, if you should be believers."
Might and Power of Allah
The one who sides with a Dhawlim is a dhawlim himself, even if he does not commit the wrong.
Listening is the first step towards Amal
Every person has a false god - that prevents a person from the obedience of Allah.
What is my “COW”?
Say, [O Muhammad], "If the home of the Hereafter with Allah is for you alone and not the [other] people, then wish for death, if you should be truthful.
Claims of Bani Israel
"We are the children of Allāh and His beloved.“[Al Maida:18]
"None will enter Paradise except one who is a Jew or a Christian." [Al Baqarah:111]
"Never will the Fire touch us, except for a few days.“
If you are truthful in your claims, then why are you afraid of Death?
Why don’t you wish to die?
But they will never wish for it, ever, because of what their hands have put forth. And Allah is Knowing of the wrongdoers.
because of their wrong actions.
Why do we fear death?
Is it because of our Amal?
If it is, then why don’t we change our Amal?
And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life - [even] more than those who associate others with Allah . One of them wishes that he could be granted life a thousand years, but it would not remove him in the least from the [coming] punishment that he should be granted life. And Allah is Seeing of what they do.
Why do we want to live longer?
If we are granted a last wish before we die, what will that be?
Even if we get to live a long life, this can not prevent the punishment
Every Soul will Taste Death
Everyone of us will face Allah on the Day of Judgement
Use Dunya to Earn Akhira!
Say, "Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel - it is [none but] he who has brought the Qur'an down upon your heart, [O Muhammad], by permission of Allah , confirming that which was before it and as guidance and good tidings for the believers."
Enmity with Jibreel
Introduction of Qur’an
Qur’an is the Source of Guidance & Happiness
Quran is for the hearts, its not just the information
Heart is a faculty of understanding and retaining memory
and have hearts by which to reason [al-Hajj: 46]
Paul Pearsall, MD, a psychoneuroimmunologist and author of The Heart's Code, has researched the transference of memories through organ transplantation
Check your hearts?
After reading the Qur’an, listening to it, do I feel happy?
If I do, then this is a sign of a Eman.
& If I don’t then its Alarming!
Whoever is an enemy to Allah and His angels and His messengers and Gabriel and Michael - then indeed, Allah is an enemy to the disbelievers.
and His angels
and His messengers
then indeed Allah is an enemy to the disbelievers
Enmity with Allah is to leave, hate or go against His commands
He who hates Messenger, Angels or Allah is a Disbeliever
Loving the loved ones of Allah, is a means of attaining Allah’s pleasure.
Du’a of Rasool Allah (s.a.w)
And We have certainly revealed to you verses [which are] clear proofs, and no one would deny them except the defiantly disobedient.
Is it not [true] that every time they took a covenant a party of them threw it away? But, [in fact], most of them do not believe.
in Allah and His messengers and support them. They denied the Prophet (s.a.w.).
And when a messenger from Allah came to them confirming that which was with them, a party of those who had been given the Scripture threw the Scripture of Allah behind their backs as if they did not know [what it contained].
What is our state?
How do we deal with the Book?
How many of our children know who the Messenger (saw) is?
How many of us know what is in the Qur’an?
And they followed [instead] what the devils had recited during the reign of Solomon. It was not Solomon who disbelieved, but the devils disbelieved, teaching people magic and that which was revealed to the two angels at Babylon, Harut and Marut. But the two angels do not teach anyone unless they say, "We are a trial, so do not disbelieve [by practicing magic]." And [yet] they learn from them that by which they cause separation between a man and his wife. But they do not harm anyone through it except by permission of Allah . And the people learn what harms them and does not benefit them. But the Children of Israel certainly knew that whoever purchased the magic would not have in the Hereafter any share. And wretched is that for which they sold themselves, if they only knew.
An effect whose cause is unknown is Magic
Real Magic = Black Magic
There is no such thing as innocent magic
Allah is absolving Sulaiman(a.s) of shirk
Teaching & Practising Magic is Forbidden & is Disbelief
Magic doesn’t harm a person without Allah’s Permission
Magic used to separate a husband and wife is a worst form of magic
And if they had believed and feared Allah, then the reward from Allah would have been [far] better, if they only knew.
