Turkish English Tafsir Lesson 158-162
Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 158
I seek shelter in Allah from the rejected Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
We continue giving you various notes on the hypocrites from these verses of the Quran.
The hypocrite (munafiq) must straighten his intention and his deeds. If he doesn’t, then his repentance will not be valid. A hypocrite or munafiq is he who continuously changes direction from belief (iman) to disbelief (kufr) and vice versa. He goes back to disbelief (kufr) from belief (iman), and vice versa.
For example, the Jews had believed in Musa (Moses), and then they worshipped the calf. See, the Jews had done that back then, even though Harun (Aaron) was with them, and even though Musa (Moses) was with them. Do you see what they did? They believed in Musa (Moses), and then started worshipping the calf, meaning they idolized a calf and worshipped the idol. In the end, they disbelieved. They believed again when he got back from Mount Sinai. Then, they denied Isa (Jesus) as well. After that they denied Prophet Muhammad. You see, apostasy over apostasy. If apostasy becomes a trait of the individuals or the society, then this will lead to a disaster, and they will be destroyed. Change, indecision, and apostasy became the character of that nation, and they have been through a lot, and they will have to go through more. For this is the situation of the nations that do not derive lessons. Janâb-i Haqq exemplifies Israel here, and reads you what happened to them, reads you their character, reads you the world so that you may derive a lesson.
That said, none of those who turned back on their religion in Al-Andalus could save their worldly lives. Do you know what happened in Al-Andalus? Do you know what some of them did when the crusader armies invaded the 800 years old Islamic state? They turned back on their religion. Those who turned back could not save their worldly lives, and also destroyed their lives in the afterlife, burned it and destroyed it. No matter what the cost, even if you are torn to pieces, do not ever give up your belief (iman) in Islam. You’ll become a martyr if you die, and a ghazi if you live. A man lives for his belief (iman), and the world is a temporary thing, one day it will end, but belief (iman) is an everlasting capital.
One should not live without belief (iman) even for a brief second. One should not become faithless, not even for a single second, and should not try denial. The real belief (iman) is the belief (iman) of Islam. For even those who worship idols say they have belief (iman), along with those who divinize others, they also say they have belief (iman). Everyone says they have belief (iman). However, not one of them is a real belief (kufr). The real belief (iman) is the one that Allah Ta’ala brought forth through Al-Quran Al-Karim and Prophet Muhammad. It is the belief (iman) that the Quran brought forth, which has renewed the entire past, and has incorporated all documents of the past in itself, and personally witnesses the entire past. Don’t forget this!
That is why the hypocrites or munafiqun have always been friends with the Jews. They would give ear to the believers, and then mock them. They would mock the Islamic values.
See, in the 8th verse of Surah al-Munafiqun , Janâb-i Haqq says: “All might (izzat) belongs to Allah, and the Messenger, and the faithful.”
Time Stamp: 5:02
Says, “O hypocrite! Don’t look for might or izzat elsewhere!” There is no might or izzat in the East or the West. Might belong to Allah, the Messenger, and the true believers (mu’minun).
The hodja is reciting the last part of the 8th verse of Surah al-Munafiqun .
Janâb-i Haqq says, “But the hypocrites do not know these truths.” The following should not be forgotten either. They should not forget that showing consent to disbelief (kufr) is disbelief (kufr). See, do you accept someone’s disbelief without objection? Don’t you object to his disbelief (kufr)? See, those who don’t object also become a disbeliever (kāfir) and fall into disbelief (kufr).
“Consent to disbelief (kufr) is disbelief (kufr),” and showing consent in this case means showing no objection to disbelief (kufr). If one does not show objection to disbelief (kufr), then he has no belief (iman). Belief (iman) will always object to disbelief (kufr), and stand against it. For the two concepts are more opposite than the land and the sky. They have always been and will always be at opposite poles. For disbelief (kufr) can’t get along well with belief (kufr), ever. Those who don’t show objection, whether openly or secretly, will not be saved from disbelief (kufr).
Now, let’s say someone who sits next to you is mocking the Quran. He is mocking the verses of Al-Quran Al-Karim, and you are just sitting there like a lamb, without any objection. Okay, then you don’t have belief (iman) either. You must interfere, change the subject, or leave the room. You must leave the room at the very least, for that is a type of objection as well, that is a counteraction. If you think that leaving the room is the most suitable approach, then you’ll do that.
Power and might is in unity for the believer (mu’min). The believers must come together, for there is strength and might in unity. If you don’t unite the believers, then their strength will disappear, and the might and izzat of those who lack power will also disappear. That is why you should spread this truth to the Muslims of the world. Power and might is in unity. The Muslims of the world need to become one and united. The Muslims shall unite and come together, only then you’ll be able to aid humanity with your power. You’ll abolish the wrong (bātil), remove tyranny (zulm) from the face of the world, and establish peace and tranquillity. Otherwise, you can’t help anyone if you can’t unite.
You can’t save yourself either, nor will you save your lineage. You’ll take money and give up everything, and then your god will be money.
Friends, after announcing that power is might for the believer (mu’min), let me tell you that neither unmentionable words, nor gossip, nor lying, nor slander, nor informing against someone, nor snitching, not one of them is permissible (jaiz). Whether they are done in a verbal or written way, whether it is on media, visual media or printed media, or press, none of these are permissible (jaiz). It doesn’t matter whichever means you use to do them. Iman cannot settle in the hearts of the disbelievers (kāfir) and the hypocrites (munafiqun). As long as the disbeliever (kāfir) disbelieves (kufr), and as long as the heart of the hypocrite (munafiq) is infested with corruption (nifaq), it is not possible for belief (iman) to settle in their hearts. “Even though the disbeliever (kāfirin) seems to succeed occasionally, and seem like they are predominant,” now Muslims should pay utmost attention here! “This is nothing but a temporary test, and istidraj (gradual destruction). This is a success that is bound to evil. This is a success of evil.
Time Stamp: 10:02
Pay attention! As long as the Muslims do their duty well, and as long as their unity and integrity, the inheritors of the world are the righteous (saleh) Muslims. Disbelief (kufr) can never become the ruler of the world, ever. If it becomes, then it is temporary. It is just a test, and an istidraj (gradual destruction) for them, which is succeeding in evil. However, in the end their success will come to an end and iman (belief) will take over and become predominant again. Besides, the situation we find ourselves in indicates that.
That said, don’t forget this either! You have heard, “The believer (mu’min) is honourable,” in the verses of the Quran I have read. The most honourable person of the world is the believer (mu’min). That is, he who bears iman (belief) in his heart. He lives with honour, and dies with honour, but let’s nobody run over his honour. This is the reason that a believing (mu’min) woman can’t marry a disbeliever (kāfir). It is never possible or permissible (jaiz) for that to happen, and it is also disbelief (kufr). It is never permissible (jaiz). A faithful woman can’t marry a faithless man. She can’t marry a man who is not a believer (mu’min). A faithful woman can’t marry a man who is not a Muslim. So, bear this in mind! For honour is in iman (belief), and in the Quran.
The honour is in all values of Islam. If you have these values, then you can’t marry with disbelief (kufr) or polytheism (shirk). The person whom a woman will marry has to be a believer (mu’min) and has to be a Muslim man. Withdrawing from the Muslims and making friends with non-believers is a sign of hypocrisy or being a munafiq, and it is a manifest proof. See, a woman draws away from the believers and she is all snuggled up to a non-believer, and starts a relationship with him, it is said that this is one of the manifest proofs of hypocrisy or being a munafiq. For a hypocrite (munafiq) can’t get along with the Muslims. Now, Almighty Allah introduces Allah to us with the names, Shākir and Alīm. Janâb-i Haqq is Shākir, and Alīm. What does Allah say? See, Shākir is when Janâb-i Haqq gives abundant sawāb (reward). That is, when Janâb-i Haqq grants you abundant sawāb (reward) in return of your good deeds, and Janâb-i Haqq gives the reward of those who show gratitude perfectly. And says, “Allah knows the value of your gratitude (shukr) and belief (iman) very well, and appreciates it, and rewards you with Allah’s grace and generosity. See, Allah introduces Allah to us with the names Shākir and Alīm. Says, “As long as you show gratitude (shukr).” Now, you may ask what shukr is. It means having a good belief (iman), and to hold onto that belief (iman), meaning a continuous belief (iman). Also, doing good deeds (amal-e-saleh) is also considered a physical shukr or gratitude, and it notarizes your belief (iman). There is also verbal gratitude (shukr). See, when you utter, “alhamdulillah,” which is a verbal gratitude. Having knowledge of Islam is another type of gratitude, and so is implementing it in your life. That said, the confession of these, meaning uttering your confession is another type of gratitude. See, there is the gratitude of the heart, and the gratitude of the soul and the body. When you fulfil the commands of Islam one by one, then you’ll be considered among the grateful. You’ll be humbly accepted. Otherwise, there can’t be gratitude where the obligations (fard) are neglected, and where the entrustments are abandoned. That would be ungratefulness, and treason.
Time Stamp: 15:00
“There won’t be any reason to punish those who believe and show gratitude.” See, this is one of the glad tidings that we receive from here. If you have iman (belief), and if you have shukr (gratitude), then there is no reason for punishment. Why would Janâb-i Haqq punish you from then on? Besides, that is what Allah says: “Why should I punish you if you believe and show gratitude.” Janâb-i Haqq says this in a verse of the Quran.
Don’t you ever be in ghurūr or delusion by saying you have already done your duty. Don’t disrespect Allah Ta’ala, and do not deviate to disbelief (kufr). Don’t say there is no way out for you, rather keep doing your duty, and keep being a servant (qul). Don’t you ever fall into such ill-manner! Do not do wrong, and do not ever abandon hope. Keep doing your duty. Keep doing your duty as a servant (qul) as much as you can, with complete civility and discipline, and with your respect to Allah. For Allah is closer to us than ourselves. Allah, with Allah’s knowledge (ilm), with Allah’s omnipotence (qudrah) and mercy (rahmat), and severe punishment, is closer to us than ourselves. Allah welcomes us with whatever we deserve. Don’t you ever forget this! May Janâb-i Haqq make us among those who attain Janâb-i Haqq’s mercy (rahmat), and make us among the servants (qul) who attain Janâb-i Haqq’s grace, generosity, and mercy.

Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 159
On the 148th and 162nd verses of Surah al-Nisa .
I seek shelter in Allah from the rejected Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
The hodja is reciting the 148th and 149th verses of Surah al-Nisa .
Our Almighty Rabb, Allah (c.c.) who created the universe for us, who sent us the Glorious Quran commands: “Allah does not like the public mention of anyone’s evil conduct in speech, except by someone who has been wronged. Allah truly hears everything, and truly knows everything.”
“If you disclose a good or you conceal it, or forgive an evil deed, then know that Allah is indeed Oft-Forgiving. Allah is indeed All-Powerful (al-Qadir) over everything.”
The hodja is reciting the 150th, 151st and 152nd verses of Surah al-Nisa .
“Indeed, those who disbelieve in Allah and the Messenger, wish that they separate Allah and the Messengers. They say, ‘We believe in some and we deny others.” And they wish that they take a way between belief (iman) and disbelief (kufr). Those are truly disbelievers (kāfirin). And we have prepared a humiliating punishment for the disbelievers (kāfirin).”
See, they believe in the ones they like, and deny the others. There is no such faith (iman). See, Janâb-i Haqq states that there is no such faith (iman). Do they think they can take one Messenger, and deny the other? Do they think they can accept the ones you like and deny the others? Furthermore, they seek to deny Prophet Muhammad and Al-Quran Al-Karim, and they think they believe in Isa (Jesus), they think they believe in Musa (Moses). Yet they don’t believe in Prophet Muhammad to whom Isa (Jesus) and Musa (Moses) believe. They wish to make discrimination between Isa (Jesus) and Musa (Moses) to whom Muhammad believed. They wish to believe in certain provisions that are in the holy books, and deny others. See, it is said that people like this are the complete disbelievers (kāfirin).
Iman or faith is a whole. Allah Ta’ala (c.c.) introduced Islam with Al-Quran Al-Karim and Prophet Muhammad. The Quran, with all its commands, and all its holy decrees, have the witnessing of the past in its structure. The Quran is the witness of the past. You are to believe whatever the Quran tells you to believe. That said, Islam and Al-Quran Al-Karim commands faith (iman) in the Prophethood of all Prophets. That is, you are to abide by the sharia (law) of Islam that Prophet Muhammad brought, with which renewed the entire past. And all documents and evidence regarding the future are also present in Al-Quran Al-Karim.
Time Stamp: 5:00
The faith (iman) is the one that Islam and the Quran brought forth. The faith (iman) of all Prophets is the faith (iman) of Islam. There is no other religion besides it, nor is there another faith (iman). The religion and faith (iman) of the past and the future is Islam. That is, the principles of faith (iman) that Islam brought forth.
See, “They are truly disbelievers (kāfirin).”
The hodja is reciting an excerpt of the 151st verse of Surah al-Nisa .
“We have prepared for the disbelievers (kāfirin) a humiliating punishment,” says Allah, and adds, “And those who believe in Allah and the Messenger, and don’t differentiate between them – Allah will give their rewards very soon. Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most-Merciful.“
See, it is Al-Quran Al-Karim’s own spirit and conscience that incorporates all consciences in itself. That is, Prophet Muhammad’s spirit and conscience. The entirety of the past and the future is present in Islam. That is why the religion of Islam believes in all Prophets and all holy books, and acts upon the rules of the sharia (law) that Prophet Muhammad (asw) brought forth with Al-Quran Al-Karim. Don’t anyone ever forget this! The faith (iman) that everyone shall believe, the real faith (iman), is the faith (iman) that is brought by Prophet Muhammad and the Quran, along with all other Prophets. That is the faith (iman) of Islam, and it cannot be divided or crumbled. Denying the fragment means denying the whole. You can’t deny even a single verse of Al-Quran Al-Karim. You have to believe in it as a whole. That said, the hadith-i sharifs that came to us through tawatur are also binding, you can’t deny them either. You can’t deny the prophethood of Prophet Muhammad. If you do, then you’ll be denying Allah. For it is Allah Ta’ala who sent Prophet Muhammad. If you reject the messenger, you reject the one who sent him, bear this in mind, and don’t say you weren’t informed.
Almighty Rabb says the following.
The hodja is reciting the 153rd verse of Surah al-Nisa .
Janâb-i Haqq says: “The People of the Book ask you that you bring down a Book to them from the heaven. Indeed, they had asked Musa (Moses) something greater than that, for they said, ‘Show us Allah manifestly.” It was due to their wrongdoing that the thunderbolt struck them. Then, they took the calf as a god after all the manifest proofs had come to them. Yet, We excused that.” See, they made an idol out of the calf and worshipped it. Allah says, “We forgave them for that also.”
“They repented, and renounced from polytheism (shirk), and We gave Musa (Moses) a clear proof and authority.”
The hodja is reciting the 154th verse of Surah al-Nisa .
“And we raised the Mount Sinai over them for their covenant. We said, ‘Enter the gate prostrating (sajdah),’ and We said to them, ‘Do not violate the Sabbath,” and We took a solemn covenant from them.”
Time Stamp: 10:15
The hodja is reciting the 155th verse of Surah al-Nisa .
“Their breaking of the covenant they had given, and their disbelief in the signs of Allah, and their killing of the Prophets without any right, and their saying, ‘Our hearts are wrapped.’.” “We have sent down upon them various disasters.”
See, Bani Isra’il broke the covenant they gave to Allah. “The truth is that Allah has set a seal on their hearts for their denial. So, they do not believe except a few.” See, it is Al-Quran Al-Karim who says these, may Allah never make us among those who fall into that situation.
The hodja is reciting the 156th verse of Surah al-Nisa .
“Another reason that a seal has been set on their hearts is that they denied Isa (Jesus) and they uttered a monstrous calumny against Maryam.”
Do you know what they did? They called Isa (Jesus) a walad zinā (offspring of illicit intercourse). They said, Maryam made Isa through zinā. They uttered such a monstrous calumny. It is said that this is one of the reasons that their hearts are sealed. They both denied Isa (Jesus), and they wanted to crucify him and kill him. Janâb-i Haqq reads the spirits to all people while announcing these. Janâb-i Haqq reads the souls of the Jews, reads the souls of the Christians, and reads the souls of other people, and reveals the wrongs so that humanity may leave the wrongs and come to the right faith (iman) and become Muslims.
The hodja is reciting the 157th verse of Surah al-Nisa .
See, Janâb-i Haqq commands, “And for their saying, ‘We killed the Messiah, Isa (Jesus) son of Maryam, the Messenger of Allah.’.” Let us see Janâb-i Haqq’s answer. “Though they did neither kill him, nor crucify him. Rather the one they killed was made to appear to them as Isa (Jesus). Indeed, those who fall into disputes concerning him, are surely in a complete doubt about him. They don’t have any knowledge about that matter. They only follow assumption. They certainly did not kill him.”
Friends, Janâb-i Haqq, Almighty Allah gave the answer. Replied those who say they killed Isa (Jesus), and those who say he had been killed.
“Rather, Allah raised him up towards Allah. Allah is al-Aziz, always superior, and is All-Wise.”
Dearest friends, Janâb-i Haqq announces the truths.
Time Stamp: 14:47
The hodja is reciting the 159th and 160th verses of Surah al-Nisa .
Let us see what Janâb-i Haqq commands here: “There is nobody among the People of the Book who has not believed in Isa (Jesus) before his death. And on the Last Day, he will witness them.”
See, after stating this situation, Janâb-i Haqq also says the following:
The hodja is reciting the 161st and 162nd verses of Surah al-Nisa .
Janâb-i Haqq says: “Then, for the wrongdoing (zulm) of the Jews, and that they hindered many people from Allah’s way, for they took riba (usury) even though they were forbidden, for they consumed people’s property unjustly,” Janâb-i Haqq says, “We prohibited them certain good things that were permitted to them earlier. And we have prepared for those who are disbelievers (kāfir) a painful punishment.”
However, for those who are firmly grounded in knowledge (ilm), and those who believe (iman), they believe in what has been sent to you, and what was sent down before you.”
See, this is real faith (iman). The knowledge (ilm) that calls to faith (iman) is real knowledge (ilm). The knowledge (ilm) that merges with faith (iman) is true knowledge (ilm).
“They are those who maintain the namāz (prayer), give the zakāt (poor dues), and believe in Allah and the Last Day. There is a great reward for them.”
Now, our dearest and most revered friends! In these verses there are certain concealed matters, and regarding these matters, especially regarding the ones about Isa (Jesus), there are many opinions and certain disputes. Insha ‘Allah Ta’ala, we will try to present you right information under the light of authentic sunnah, along with the ones that are disputed. See, everybody has their own mind about Isa (Jesus), and everyone says something. That said, insha ‘Allah we’ll uncover the truth altogether. Now, we’ll point to certain far ends in some of the sacred verses. Now, about wrongdoing, Janâb-i Haqq does not like whether it is disclosed or concealed. Allah does not like wrongdoing. For one thing, this is what we understand from the verse of the Quran. So, what do we get here? We get that a Muslim must not have evil in or around him, he should not have evil-doings. Evil-doings should not be able to reside within him. If the Muslim has involved in some evil-doing, then he has to purify himself with repentance and asking for forgiveness. It is only Allah who can forgive the sins. Even if you could unite the entire world, neither the Prophets nor the Awliya, nobody can forgive a sin. It is only Allah who forgives the sins, and shows wrath and punishment for manifest evil-doings. Now, every sin is bad, but the ones that are committed openly are given rather severe punishment and wrath because they promote others to committing sins, and they distort the general morality of the public.
Time Stamp: 20:05
We are pointing out the far ends because they should be known and inscribed to the hearts. Those who are persecuted may yell out because he is innocent and he is being persecuted. Baddua (curse) or retaliation in kind is also permissible because the tyrant inflicts cruelty on him.
Now what we have stated this, let me say that if the rights of the guest are not observed, then the guest is also considered someone who has been wronged. He has a right to complain. Hosting guests is a sacred duty in Islam. Entertaining the guest is among the sacred duties and divine commands that are made necessary by Islam. That is why, if your guest is at the door, then it is a guest sent to you by Almighty Allah. Try to host the guest as best as you can. The religion of Islam is a hospitable religion. Muslims are hospitable people.
Now, somebody said something bad to Abu Bakr (r.a.) back then, and he kept quiet, and then answered him. Now, please pay attention because there are certain lessons that we need to derive from certain matters. Then, when Abu Bakr replied, our Prophet stood up. Abu Bakr asked him, “You were sitting, why did you get up?” Our Prophet (asw) said, “The angels were advocating you while you were silent,” pay attention now! Abu Bakr was defended by an angel, “And when you replied, the Shaitan came,” see the angel had left, and our Prophet said, “And I got up when the Shaitan arrived.” There is a hidden cause and mystery here.
My dearest friend!
If you think you will not be able to defend yourself in the setting you find yourself in, or if you have truly dignified and you don’t want to pick up the gauntlet due to your high morals, then Janâb-i Haqq will defend you, or will send someone who will defend you. Sometimes it is legitimate to speak in response, and sometimes it is better to keep quiet. About that, you need to evaluate the situation you find yourself in. You better keep quiet especially if there are grand figures around you. See, had Abu Bakr maintained his silence when he was with our Prophet, the angels would keep defending him. He was sitting next to our Prophet, and when Abu Bakr answered the one who teased him, the situation has changed. A Muslim should also know well what showing respect to grand figures or elderly mean.
It is also possible to uncover a variety of secrets and mysteries. Then again, let us see the matters in the verse of the Quran.
There are people in the world who don’t accept Allah and the Messenger. Now, about that, disbelief (kufr) has a variety of types. First type is that of a person who does not accept Allah, and he also does not accept the Messenger. The second type of disbelief (kufr) is that of a person who believes in Allah but does not accept the Messenger, nor does he believe in the Book. This is the second-class people of disbelief (kufr). The third type is that of a person who believes in some of the Prophets, and does not believe in others, and also accept certain parts of the Book, and neglect and deny the rest. There are such people who accept a part of the Book, and don’t believe or reject the other parts. See, these are one by one the types of disbelief (kufr).
Time Stamp: 25:10
Now, the place of the People of the Book among these three classes is the third. The Christians and the Jews accept some Prophets, and they don’t accept others. They also believe in some of the Book, and deny the rest. See, it is said that the People of the Book are considered in the that class. We have seen disbelief (kufr) under three classes, these are the groups of disbelief (kufr), and groups of disbelievers (kāfir). See all philosophical structures in the world today. See those among them who can be placed into these categories. Now, there are those who don’t accept Allah, who also do not believe in the Prophets, they under the first group.
There are also those who think the nature operates it all, there are naturists, and atheists, they are considered among the first class of disbelief (kufr), and they represent the people of disbelief (ahlul kufr). The second class is that of those who believe in Allah but don’t believe in the Prophets, and they also don’t believe in the Book. These people constitute the second class of ahlul kufr. As for the third class, it is that of those who believe in some of the Prophets, and don’t believe in others. They also believe in certain parts of the Book, and disbelieve in the rest. These people are constituting the third class of ahlul kufr. All three are considered among the groups of disbelievers (kāfir). For faith (iman) is not really faith (iman) when you believe in some and disbelieve in the others. If you deny the element, then you deny the whole. Every command of Allah is sacred and holy. We have to believe in every command, for there is no faith (iman) where they are denied.
The Jews say they believe in Musa, Uzair, and the Torah, but they don’t believe in the others. Pay attention! They say they believe in Musa, Uzair, and the Torah, but don’t believe in the others. Whereas this not the real faith (iman) that Musa and the Torah brought forth. The faith (iman) of Musa and the Torah incorporates belief in all of the Prophets, and all of the Books. Prophet Muhammad was heralded in Torah, it announced his coming. It also announced the coming of Al-Quran Al-Karim. They will not have believed in Musa (Moses) when these are denied, and they will not have believed in the Torah either, they will not have believed in Uzair either. See, they have misguided themselves here, and they were struck by the wrath of Allah. See, this way they incurred the wrath of Allah. They were struck in the past as well, and they need to renounce from their transgression. They will become Muslims right away if they start believing in the principles of faith (iman) that Musa (Moses) and the Torah brought forth. Now, as for the Christians, they say they believe in Isa (Jesus), Musa (Moses), the Torah, and the Bible. However, they don’t believe in Prophet Muhammad and Al-Quran Al-Karim. Pay attention! This is the frame of mind of them and those who are close to them, and they could not come together with true faith (iman). See, the faith (iman) that Isa (Jesus) and the Bible brought forth is a wholesome faith (iman). The primary objective of Isa (a.s.) was to give the good news of Prophet Muhammad. Had the Christians believed in Isa (Jesus) and the Bible, they would have become Muslims right away. See, it is because both Isa (a.s.) and the Bible Sharif heralded the coming of Prophet Muhammad. They did not say, “Deny him,” on the contrary they said, “Believe in him.” So, it means that those who say they believe in the Bible and those who say they believe in Isa (Jesus) neither believe in Isa (Jesus) nor the Bible. Had they believed, they would not have denied Prophet Muhammad and Al-Quran Al-Karim.
Time Stamp: 30:17
See, denying a command of Allah or denying a Prophet, is equal to denying all commands, all Prophets, and denying Allah. See, this is the wholesome faith (iman) that the religion of Islam brought forth. You cannot deny any Prophet. For it is Allah who sent the Prophets. Denying the messenger is equal to denying the one who sent him. Should nobody forget! Al-Quran Al-Karim says those who seek a way between belief (iman) and disbelief (kufr), and between right (haqq) and wrong (batil) are disbelievers (kāfir). We have read the 150th and 151st verses and gave their meanings. If you wish to take another look, you can go ahead and read those verses of Surah al-Nisa .
Now, let me repeat that those who seek a way between belief (iman) and disbelief (kufr), and between right (haqq) and wrong (batil) are disbelievers (kāfir).
The hodja is reciting an excerpt of the 151st verse of Surah al-Nisa .
Janâb-i Haqq says, “It is they who are truly disbelievers (kāfir).” See, the faith (iman) of Islam believes in all Prophets. The faith (iman) of Islam believes in all books. That said, whatever Al-Quran Al-Karim confirmed, and whatever Prophet Muhammad confirmed and affirmed, whether it belongs to the future or the past, in the faith (iman) of Islam they are all acknowledged.
See, the Muslims shall act upon Muhammad’s sharia (law) which renewed the past until the Last Day. As for denying Muhammad’s sharia (law) or neglecting it is straight-up disbelief (kufr). That said, those who say there are as much sharia (law) as there are mujtahids are of a misguided mindset. The ijtihads that are brought forth by the mujtahids are nothing but explorations of the sharia (law) that Muhammad brought. The knowledge (ilm) in the Quran is clear, the hadith-i sharifs are clear, the ijmā (consensus) is also clear. As for qiyās (analogical reasoning), it means coming up with unknown provisions from what is known. See, it means progressing from what is known to what is unknown.
So, saying that there as much sharias (laws) as there are mujtahids and as there as madhabs (schools) is slandering against all mujtahids, and this is an utter misguidance. That said, the sharia (law) of Muhammad was explored by the mujtahids. Nobody came forth with another sharia (law). There are no other sharias (laws) for each mujtahid. Now, an ijtihad does not mean uncovering a new sharia (law).
That is why a group those who polish the apple for the taghuti powers or false deities in the world are Buddhists, some are naturists, and others are god knows what. Some of them use the Quran, while the others use philosophy, and there are people who speak in the name of the religion (din) while they are under the influence of those from whom they procure unearned income. Their opinions are not valid, and they are the embodiment of misguidance.
See, they cut-out certain people and place themselves in their place. They say, “Stop interfering with the servant (qul) and Allah, and they place themselves right in between. This is misguidance, and not knowing what to do. That is why we say, may Janâb-i Haqq make the entire humanity understand the reality of Islam, the reality of the Quran, to discover them well, and keep honouring yourself with the glorious and honourable faith (iman). May Janâb-i Haqq make us honour us, and make us always rise.

Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 160
I seek shelter in Allah from the rejected Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Our goal is to be able to read the truths in the right manner, because when you see any object (jism) you’ll see that it is a book, but only if you know how to read. So, know how to read! Every object (jism) is a holy book, and is there via a divine law, as long as you know how to read, and as long as you know every object (jism) is a book.
There is the cosmological realm, it is filled to brim with cosmological signs (ayat/verse). As for Al-Quran Al-Karim, it is the embodiment of the written signs (ayat/verse). See, the written signs (ayat/verses) are the ones that are in Al-Quran Al-Karim.
That said, let’s talk about the Jews and Musa (a.s.). There are verses that narrate how the Jews used to behave against Musa (Moses), which are sent down so that the world may derive lessons until the Last Day. In the 154th verse, the Jews gave a solemn covenant under the mountain. To whom? The Jews gave a solemn covenant to Musa. However, they violated the covenant still, and in the end, they incurred Allah’s wrath.
As for the true nature of Isa (a.s.), he was a word or kalimah, a soul. What does a soul mean? Allah created the soul as a creature (makhluq). Everybody has soul. As for the truth about Isa (a.s.), he is a word or kalimah, a soul.
Now, check-up the 157th verse of Surah al-Nisa.
The hodja is reciting a part of the aforementioned verse.
What does Janâb-i Haqq say there? Says that Janâb-i Haqq made those who say they killed Isa (Jesus) fall into doubt. See, Janâb-i Haqq says that those who wanted to kill Isa (Jesus) were led to doubt, and it was made to appear to them. That is, he was made to appear to them like Isa (Jesus). Instead of Isa (Jesus), a man who spied on him was crucified and executed. The Jews hanged him, thinking he was Isa (Jesus), but Janâb-i Haqq says here that he was made to appear to them like Isa (Jesus), and that they were led to doubt.
As for him:
The hodja is reciting an excerpt of the 158th verse of Surah al-Nisa .
“Allah raised him up toward Allah.”
Now, there is a similitude and simile here. There are two angles of it, and there are various opinions. That is, there are many opinions in regards to the situation of Isa (Jesus). Now, the following is the opinion of the Kalamists. They say, the Jews picked someone and killed him. They said this is Isa (Jesus) the Messiah, and they crucified him. It was not Isa (Jesus) whom they crucified, but they crucified him thinking he was Isa (Jesus). See, what does Janâb-i Haqq say? Says, “He was made to appear to them like Isa (Jesus).” Allah is All-Able (al-Qadir). Allah made the spy appear like Isa (Jesus), and they crucified him. So, that is the opinion of the Kalamists.
Then again, Yehuda had sent Taytayus to where Isa (Jesus) resided. See, Yehuda had sent someone named Taytayus to where Isa (Jesus) resided. He had sent him to assassinate him, and Isa (Jesus) was raised by Janâb-i Haqq towards sky to the heavens, and the one who had entered the house was made to appear like Isa (Jesus), and they crucified him thinking he was Isa (Jesus). So, this has been the opinion of the Kalamists.
As for another opinion, it is said that someone spying on Isa (Jesus) was made to appear like Isa (Jesus). Then, Isa (Jesus) went to the mountain, and he was raised from the mountain to the heavens. They crucified that person even though he said he was not Isa (Jesus).
Another opinion states that Isa (Jesus) had ten people with him when they wanted to catch him, and these are said to be the Disciples of Isa (Jesus).
Time Stamp: 5:00
Isa said, “Who will pose as me and buy Janna (Paradise)?” One of the disciples said, “I will,” and Allah Ta’ala (c.c.) made him appear like Isa (Jesus), and they crucified him, and Isa (Jesus) was raised to the heavens. This is one of the opinions.
Then again, there is another opinion that say the hypocrite who seemingly supported Isa (Jesus) was made to appear like Isa (Jesus), and they crucified him.
Now, Fakhr al-Din al-Razi is among our grand Islamic scholars (âlim), and he can be considered the imam (leader) of the mufassirin (authors), he is such a grad Islamic scholar (âlim), and he considered these opinions contradictory and did not fancy them. That said, the parts that are about the verse are correct.
Let us see what is written in the Bibles. This is the opinion of the Bibles and the Christians. They believe that he was crucified in the Period of Flatos by Yehud. They say he was then resurrected and raised to the heavens. That is, the Christians say he died and then got resurrected, and then he was raised to the heavens.
The Bibles narrate that Yehuda took money from the oracles of Eshar Yutulin, and betrayed Isa (Jesus), and hanged himself due to regret. There are three groups regarding this opinion. So, the groups who say this happened in the Bible have three views.
The first group is the Melkaniyye, which is a Christian madhab (school). These say Nasut and Lahut, meaning, “Death occurred with body and soul.
The second group is the Yakubiyye. They say Isa (Jesus) had both elements (jawhar). They say Isa (Jesus) was born with two elements (jawhar), and he existed. They say, death occurred with both elements (jawhar).
The third group is the Nasturiye, they say his body (jism) was killed, and his soul was raised. As for this, it is the third opinion which is actually the case with all deaths. This is the opinion of Nasturiye.
As for Fakhr al-Din al-Razi, along with the majority of the philosophers, he favours the third opinion. For everyone’s body dies, and the soul will be carried downwards to Jahannam (Hell) which is about Sijjin. Or, the soul will be taken to Ala al-Illiyin (the highest place in Paradise). Besides, every person consists of body and soul, not just Isa (Jesus). Everybody has a body and a soul. The body of Isa had died, but his soul did not. This is the case with all humans. See, the nafs (soul) of Isa (Jesus) was one that was very close to the souls of the angels. This nafs (soul) was luminated with sacred, lofty, heavenly, and divine nūr (light). That said, he is a servant (qul). Isa (Jesus) is a servant (qul) of Allah, and son of Maryam, and he is a Prophet. The one who betrayed Isa (Jesus) and called the soldiers was made to appear like Isa (Jesus). See, there are certain works that say the one who was made to appear like Isa (Jesus) was killed.
The 159th verse says, “Everyone among the People of the Book must believe in him before their death. Adopting faith while doing is not valid. Meaning, a person sees the truths at his or her moment of death. When the truth flashes before their eyes, they understand that Prophet Muhammad is the real Prophet, and Isa (Jesus) was once a Prophet, and those who denied them will adopt faith once this truth flashes before their eyes, but it is said in the verse that their adoption of faith will not be considered acceptable.
Time Stamp: 10:10
One should adopt faith before death comes, and before the gates of repentance are closed. The declaration of faith near death is not valid. In order for it to be valid one has to repent before death comes, before the gates of repentance are closed. One has to adopt faith and seek forgiveness before that happens. That said, Isa (Jesus) will say, “They lied about me,” regarding the Jews. See, Isa (Jesus) is a witness against the Jews, meaning he is a complainant in the Day of Judgment. Isa (a.s.) is also a complainant against the Christians. They called Isa (Jesus) a god, they called him Allah’s son, and this is why Isa (a.s.) will be a witness against them. Therefore, neither the Christians, nor the Jews will be able to benefit from Isa (Jesus).
Which Jews, which Christians? See, it is the Christians who claim Isa (Jesus) is Allah’s son have fallen into polytheism, and fallen into disbelief (kufr). They divinized Isa (Jesus), and Isa (a.s.) will be a witness against them, and he is a complainant. The Jews denied him, and wanted to kill him. That is why the truest news regarding Isa (Jesus) are the ones that are in the Quran and in the Sunnah. We’ll try to inform you of these one by one.
He will rule with the Quran and abolish wrong (bātil) applications such as the cross and the pig. One day Isa (Jesus) will come, and he will be under the command of Prophet Muhammad when he comes, and he will rule with the Quran. See, Isa (a.s.) will come to the world, and because he could not complete his prophethood back then, he will rule with Al-Quran Al-Karim. Besides, he believed and acted according to the sharia (law) of Prophet Muhammad, and he will break the cross by doing his duty under Muhammad’s command. They are worshipping the cross. He will remove the pig, and abolish all wrong (bātil) applications. That is why, it is not like he will come with an Islam that is other than the Islam of today. The sharia (law) of Islam, or rather Muhammad’s (asw) sharia (law) is complete. Even if all the Prophets who ever lived came to the world, they would all act according to the sharia (law) of Islam, and they will be under the command of Prophet Muhammad’s soul. For the sharia (law) of Islam is the world’s last sharia (law) until the Last Day. It is the brand-new sharia (law). It has renewed the past.
The 146th verse of Surah al-An’am  says that Janâb-i Haqq forbade the Jews the animals with claws, and the fat of clawed animals except what is in the entrails. For as they committed crimes, the bounties that they had were taken one by one, and their look and their clothing was changed, and throughout history they were punished with various punishments. So, what is the hikmat (hidden cause) behind these narratives? It is said to all nations, all Muslims, and the Jews, and the Christians that they should all become righteous Muslims. The only religion is Islam, so become Muslims, and fully believe, and become complete Muslims. This is the message given to the entire world. See, someone’s spiritual world is narrated to you, and a lesson is given to the world. I say, woe to those who don’t derive lessons from this!
Time Stamp: 15:00
Now, about the other matters, let me give you more notes from Ibn-i Kathīr. Almighty Allah does not like baddua (curse) except by those who are persecuted. So, if a person is being persecuted, then he will surely do baddua (curse) against the tyrants.
Yehud denied Prophet Isa, the Bible, Prophet Muhammad, Islam, and the Quran. The Christians also chose the path of denial. This narration comes from Al-Tabari, but these are openly stated in Al-Quran Al-Karim as well.
Those who believe are saved, and those who disbelieve are ruined. Now, what did the Jews say about Isa (a.s.)? They called Isa (Jesus) walad zinā (born out of wedlock), they said he had a father. That is, they claimed he was born to a father and mother who fornicated. They slandered Isa (Jesus). Islam denies these claims. Isa (a.s.) is a pure Prophet. He is the son of Maryam. He is a servant (qul) of Allah.
Prophet Adam had no father and no mother, and Isa (Jesus) had no father. Allah is All-Able (al-Qadir). The verse says Allah made him appear to them like Isa (Jesus). There are signs of this in Al-Quran Al-Karim anyway. Now, they say the following about the one who was killed. They say, “If the one who got killed was Isa (Jesus),” see the Jews who say they have killed Isa say something else too, let us see what they say now. They were divided into two as well. They said, “If the one who got killed is Isa (Jesus), then where is our friend?” See, this is a problem right there, where is Isa (Jesus) if it was their friend who got killed? They said this and fell into doubt and dispute. Now, this is a report that is present in At-Tashil, meaning the aforementioned narration is based on the source in At-Tashil. They all agree that someone was killed, but who? You see, this is where they fell into dispute, and Al-Quran Al-Karim gave them the answer and said, “Certainly, they did not kill Isa (Jesus),” for Allah did not let them. The one they killed was someone who was made to appear like Isa (Jesus).
Now, in a hadith-i sharif narrated by Al-Bukhari and Al-Muslim, it is said that he was raised to the heavens (samaa) with his body and soul while he was alive. It is Prophet Muhammad who said that he was raised to the heavens. “I swear by Allah in whose hands my soul is,” says our Prophet, “Isa (Jesus), the son of Maryam will soon descend amongst you as a just judge, and he will break the cross, get rid of the pig, and remove the jizya,” this is a narration that comes from our Prophet. Besides, this narration is reported by Al-Bukhari and Al-Muslim. Then again, Keşmîrî says:
The hodja is reciting the original text of the narration.
That is, he says that the news concerning the coming down of the messiah are clear and are considered to be at the level of tawatur. Also, it is narrated by Bukhari and Muslim, and also by Tahkik, Abdul Fettah, and Ebu Gudde.
See the 49th verse of Surah al-Anbiya  for the matters of maẓālim iman. Information on these matters is given here as well but insha ‘Allah we will mention them in due course. We’ll try to convey information in every matter as the occasion arises, and we’re studying Al-Quran Al-Karim from start to finish.
Then again, in another report that comes from Ibn-i Abbas the following is said.
Radiyallahu anhum wa ardahum ajmain.
“No Jew dies before believing in Isa (Jesus). As for those who are beheaded, they will try to mumble with their tongues.” The source of this narration includes Mujahid, Ikrime, and Ibn-i Sirin. This is a narration that comes from them, and it is said that these narrations are authentic.
Time Stamp: 20:32
Al-Tabari says that the pronoun qabla mawtihī in the 159th verse refers to Isa (Jesus). As for Al-Qurtubi, he said it refers to Prophet Muhammad.
“There will be nobody who has not believed in him when Isa (Jesus) descends. The People of the Book declare faith towards Isa (Jesus) at the point of death when they see the angel of death, but their faith (iman) will not be of any help, for they declare it while dying. Some used to practice polytheism, and some used to deny.”
Ebussuud Efendi is a source of the aforementioned narration, along with Al-Kashshaaf and Al-Jalalayn.
The 157th verse of the Quran denies the Jews, and the Christians. The former say they killed him, and the latter believes in the cross and worships it. This verse denies both of them. Beware! Both the Jews and the Christians are denied in the 157th verse. Says that both their beliefs regarding Isa (Jesus) is wrong. Rejects the Jews and the Christians. The Jews say, “We killed Isa (Jesus).” Do you know what the Christians say? They say, “They crucified Isa (Jesus), and killed him.” What does Janâb-i Haqq say? Says, “Certainly, they did not kill him.”
On top of this, they believe in the cross and they worship it. They say Isa (Jesus) was humiliated. They say they cursed at Isa (Jesus), and say they made him wear a woven crown of thorns. They say he cried and begged. They say all that about Isa (Jesus) and then they say he is Allah and they also say he is the son of Allah. They believe he came to save them from their sins. There is a great misguidance, and many contradictions here. They have many other claims that are filled to the brim with contradictions.
Now, a poem mocks them by saying, “Where was the father when the son was taken prisoner and handed over to the enemy? Did they persuade him?” Now, he says to the Christians, “Or did they make him angry?” “Did they persuade the father, or made him angry?” And adds, “If they persuaded the father to their cruelty, then Jews will take pride in it. The Jews will brag because they say they killed him. “According to them, they tortured him, and if the father became angry then why didn’t he save his son?” The poet is mocking them here. “And if you say even though the father was angry, he could not save his son, and the Jews killed the son,” and the poet mocks them here as well by saying, “then you should worship the Jews for they stood against the father and won.” See, he says in that case the Jews overcame the Father. These are all perverted ideas, and the poet mocks this misguidance. Al-Quran Al-Karim conveys the truth and the reality of the matter. The Jew is murderer, they are Prophet killers. Among them there are those who made those murders, and those who have this perverted idea. Otherwise, our words do not include the Jews who have true faith. There are many Jewish âlims (Islamic scholars) in history who became Muslims. They are exceptions, for they are valuable individuals.

However, they have done all types of injustice to Prophets such as Isa (Jesus), Uzair, Zechariah, and Yahya (John), and they killed some of them unjustly. They also divinized some of them, just like Uzair. They called him son of Allah. Their mindset is hostile towards the Prophets, and we are speaking against them. That said Al-Quran Al-Karim addresses that mindset as well. As for the Christians, what did they do? They divinized Isa (Jesus), and some of them called him son of Allah, and some said trinity, and some claimed Isa (Jesus) was Allah. They all fell into polytheism (shirk). They all deviated from the way of Isa (Jesus) and the Bible, Musa (Moses) and the Torah. The right path was brought forth by Islam, it renewed the past, and swept the rubble that is left from the past and brought forth the divine, holy and brand-new values that encompass all eras. Janâb-i Haqq calls the entire world to Islam with the Quran. Allah calls people to Allah. As for us, we call to Almighty Allah, Glorious Islam, and the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad, and the values he brought. Those who believe will be saved, and those who don’t will ruin themselves. There is freedom, and this world is but a test, but nobody has the chance to transgress into the boundaries of someone else’s freedom and use force. Neither I nor someone else can use force by saying “You have to do this,” to someone. There is no such knowledge (ilm), no law, and no rule. That is not present in the laws of Allah. Nor can someone else impose something on me and interfere in my free-will, but we can talk about everything. Friends, I do not speak my own mind. We cannot talk about Allah’s Book, Prophet Muhammad’s Sunnah, the ijmā (consensus), without basing it on the primary sources and Islam that are based on qiyās (analogical reasoning). It is an obligation upon us to express the truth and express the reality. One can’t give legal opinion (fatwa) according to the philosophies. One can’t express the truth according to the philosophy of the east or the west. Those whose thoughts suit the truth, science, the Quran, divine revelation (wahy-i ilahi) are right. Those whose thoughts are against divine revelation (wahy-i ilahi), science, and sound intellect (aql-e-saleem) are wrong. The way of sound intellect (aql-e-saleem) is one, and that is sirat al-mustaqim (the straight path). The things that are against it are already delusive. We all need to go to the divine revelation (wahy-i ilahi) which is right and real, meaning to Al-Quran Al-Karim and Prophet Muhammad, and we need to discover these values. You see, this is what we strive for.
May Janâb-i Haqq guide us all on the right and luminous path, and not lead us astray from the holy values of the life-giving and blissful Islam. May Janâb-i Haqq make our faith (iman) perfect and lasting.

Al-Quran Al-Kareem – Tafsir (Exegesis) Lesson 162
On the 163rd and 175th verses of Surah al-Nisa .
The hodja is reciting the 163rd and 164th verses of Surah al-Nisa .
In these verses of the Quran, our Almighty Rabb presents all documents and proofs of the future, along with all realities of the past to humanity. Allah offers the life-giving holy book, and the holy verses to the servants (qul). Allah puts them forth before the minds and consciences.
Allah commands: “We have indeed revealed to you what We revealed to Nuh,” that is Noah Alayhissalam, “as We revealed to the Prophets who came after him.” Do you know whom Allah addresses here? Allah addresses Prophet Muhammad (a.s.) and says, “We have revealed these to you as well,” and adds, “as we revealed to Ibrahim (Abraham) and Ismail (Ishmael), Ishak (Isaac), Yakub (Jacob), and their grandchildren, Isa (Jesus) and Ayyūb (Job), Yunus (Jonah), Harun (Aaron), and Suleiman (Solomon),” and says, “We have Dawood (David) the Psalms.” Alaihimusselam. See, Al-Quran Al-Karim mentions the names of the Prophets.
Al-Quran Al-Karim and Islam does not let anyone speak ill about any of the Prophets. They don’t allow anything to be said against them in the least. Al-Quran Al-Karim is a muhaymin (guardian) and mu’min (believer) to all Prophets, and that is exactly what it commands. See, “We have revealed it to the Prophets whom We mentioned to you, and to other Prophets whom We have not mentioned to you. And Allah spoke to Musa (Moses)”
May Janâb-i Haqq accept salaam (peace) from us to all Prophets. Peace be upon them all. Muslims believe in all Prophets whom are mentioned or not mentioned in Islam, Al-Quran Al-Karim and Holy Books. Al-Quran Al-Karim commands believing in them all, for there is do discrimination in Islam. There is no segregation in Islam. Islam has encompassed all truths, and excluded all that is wrong.
The hodja is reciting the 165th, 166th, 167th, 168th, and 169th verses of Surah al-Nisa .
Time Stamp: 4:42
Let us see what our Almighty Rabb says in these verses. “We sent the Prophets as bearers of glad tidings and warners of punishment, so that people may not have any argument against Allah after the Prophets. Allah (c.c.) is indeed All-Mighty, and All-Wise.”
“But Allah bears witness to what Allah has revealed to you by Allah’s own knowledge (ilm).” Do you know whom Allah addresses here? Allah addresses Muhammad, and says: “Allah revealed what is revealed to you,” which is Al-Quran Al-Karim, “by Allah’s own knowledge (ilm), and Allah bears witness to it personally.” Now, pay attention to this! O, Muhammad! Allah bears witness that what Allah revealed to you, which is Al-Quran Al-Karim. Allah bears witness that Allah revealed Al-Quran Al-Karim to you by Allah’s knowledge (ilm), and the angels bear witness as well.
“And sufficient is Allah’s witnessing,” it is enough. There is no need for another witness, but others bear witness as well, the angels bear witness.
“Surely, those who deny, and hinder others from the way of Allah, they have strayed into a far error.”
See, Allah personally witnesses the Prophethood of Muhammad. Witnesses that Allah revealed Al-Quran Al-Karim to Muhammad, and that Allah revealed it from Allah’s own knowledge (ilm). Allah personally witnesses, but some people deny.
Tomorrow, you will stand before Allah. What will you say to Allah? Allah (c.c.) says, “I bear witness that Muhammad is the right Prophet, and Al-Quran Al-Karim is the right Book,” how can you deny this? And who will lose except you if you deny? Don’t you have pity on yourself and those people whom you lead astray? Al-Quran Al-Karim has encompassed and incorporated all realities of the past. It also incorporates all documents regarding the future into its structure. Is it possible to deny this? Janâb-i Haqq says: “Indeed, those who deny, and those who hinder people from the way of Allah have deviated into a far error.” “That way will only guide them to the way to Jahannam (Hell), wherein they shall remain forever, and that is very easy for Allah.”
See, if you deny Allah and the Messenger, and the Quran which is Allah’s Book, then you also deny the witnessing of Allah, you also deny Muhammad and Al-Quran Al-Karim. See, some of those who accept also believe in some of them which suit their goals, and deny the rest. It is said that all of them deserve Jahannam (Hell), you have to believe the right way. The right way is the way Al-Quran Al-Karim wants. Prophet Muhammad brought forth Al-Quran Al-Karim and Islam in a certain manner, and introduced the essentials of faith (iman) of Islam. Islam has introduced the articles of faith. The real faith (iman) is the one that is introduced by Islam. Islam is a whole. Your heart shall affirm all of it, and your tongue shall recite your belief. You’ll love Allah Ta’ala with every fibre of your being and you’ll serve Allah as a servant (qul). You shall obey the commands, do your worship, and fulfil the divine commands. Otherwise, you’ll ruin yourself. Today we’re living on earth, but tomorrow will be lowered into the grave, and then we will leap from the grave and come to the gathering, where we’ll stand between two Zebanis, two soldiers. See, Allah’s armies have sieged the gathering (mahshar). Allah’s endless and boundless armies have sieged the gathering (mahshar) in circles. Suit yourself, but we’re obliged to speak. We have obliged to do our duties humbly. We were created for being servants (qul) of Allah. Servitude, or being a qul, is the highest of honours. As for serving others slavishly, it is idolatry. And that makes one lose all honour and dignity.
Time Stamp: 10:22
Servitude to Allah is to earn the highest of honours. As for serving people slavishly, it is to lose that honour forever. Take nobody as a deity, but give them what they deserve. Okay, if he is a commander, then he is a commander. If he is a learned man, then he is a learned man. If he is an âlim, then he is an âlim. If he is a physicist, then he is a physicist. If he is a chemist, then he is a chemist. If he is a great statesman, then he is a great statesman. If he is a good scientist, then he is a good scientist. Give everybody the respect they deserve, but do not idolize anyone, do not divinize anyone, and don’t take them as god. Pay everyone their rights, but do not overstep the bounds. Is it possible to attribute godship to a servant (qul)? Do you know how many deities there will be if you divinize your commander, and then another goes and divinizes his leader, and the other divinizes someone else. Do you know how many gods there will be? The Christians have three gods, and yours and the ones that of the others will be uncountable.
Allah is One. Allah has no equals, no peers, no partners, no custodians, and no similars. Never had them, and never will. Study the Quran, and get to know Allah. Get acquainted with Prophet Muhammad, and know Allah well. Get to know Allah Ta’ala (c.c.) by Allah’s Names, Qualities, and Works. Do not ruin yourself!
The hodja is reciting the 170th verse of Surah al-Nisa .
Almighty Rabb sheds light and explains the life-giving and holy commands to people so that they may find life. See, Al-Quran Al-Karim saves you from the wrongs at first, and then adorns you with the truths, and gives you life.
Allah says, “O, mankind!”
See, in this verse Almighty Allah addresses all people. Allah shouts out to all people and says, “The Messenger (Rasul) has brought you the truth (haqq) from your Rabb.” The previous Prophets were also like him but Prophet Muhammad is the Last Prophet until the Last Day. “So believe, it is better for you.” See, believing in Prophet Muhammad means saving yourself, and finding eternal life, as Janâb-i Haqq says. Believe in that Muhammad, it is better for you. Approve his Prophethood. Abide by the sharia (law) he brought. Believe with the faith (iman) of Islam.
Allah says, “If you disbelieve,” by saying “wa-in takfurū.” Says, “If you disbelieve, then indeed to Allah belongs (mā fī l-samāwāti wal-arḍi),” that is, “Then indeed to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and earth.” Everything is temporary, except the Rulership of Allah. Allah is the Absolute Ruler of all the worlds, forever. The beginningless (azali) and endless (abadi), absolute and omnipotent (muqtadir) is only Allah. If you divinize someone saying he is a ruler, then let me ask you, even if we gathered all your commanders together, can they create a single fly? Allah created the world in a perfect manner. Almighty Allah created you, but you choose to abandon Allah and divinize someone else. Is this even logical or sound? Does that suit conscience, knowledge, wisdom, or science? Do you know what Janâb-i Haqq says? “Allah is All-Knowing, and All-Wise.”
The hodja is reciting the last part of the 170th verse.
Time Stamp: 15:20
The hodja is reciting the 171st verse of Surah al-Nisa .
Now, pay attention! The Christians should pay attention to these verses of the Quran. Allah teaches us all about the real Isa (Jesus). There is also an Isa (Jesus) that you fabricated. There is an Isa (Jesus) that you idolized. There is also a real one, who is Allah’s servant (qul), and Maryam’s son.
Look what Allah says: “O, People of the Book!” that is the Jews and the Christians! “Do not exceed the bounds in your religion, and speak nothing but truth about Allah.” “Only the Messiah, Isa, son of Maryam,” pay attention now! Allah Ta’ala says, “son of Maryam.”
The hodja is reciting a part of the 171st verse.
“Only the Messiah, Isa, son of Maryam was a Messenger of Allah, and he was Allah’s word which Allah conveyed to Maryam, and a spirit from Allah.”
“So, believe in Allah and the Messengers. Do not say, ‘Allah is a trinity,’,” for Allah is One. “Desist, it is better for you.” Desist from saying that for your own good. Stop saying that Allah is a trinity, but acknowledge Allah’s unity. Allah is One in Being. Allah is One in the attributes (sifāt). Allah is One in actions (af’al). Allah is One in regards to everything.
“Surely, Allah is the One God,” there is no god besides Allah. “Allah is far too immaculate to have a son.” Allah has servants (qul), not children, not sons or daughters. Allah has servants (qul).
“Whatever is in the heavens and on the earth belongs to Allah. Allah (c.c.) is enough as a trustee.”
Dearest and most valuable friends!
This is the real Isa (Jesus) that Al-Quran Al-Karim witnesses, and he is a Messenger of Allah, and the son of Maryam, and servant (qul) of Allah.
The hodja is reciting the 171st verse of Surah al-Nisa .
What does Janâb-i Haqq say here? “The Messiah will never disdain to be a servant (qul) of Allah, and not the angels, the ones who are near to Allah.” They always be of service to Allah, and they do not disdain. They do not disdain to be servants (qul) of Allah, and they take joy in worship. “Whoever disdains from serving Allah, and is arrogant should know that Allah will gather all of them in the presence of Allah.”
Do not forget that Allah will gather everyone in Allah’s presence! Everyone, including those who disdain from worship, and those who truly worship, and the djinn, and the humans. Allah will gather everyone in the presence, do not forget this!

The hodja is reciting the 173rd verse of Surah al-Nisa .
Let us see what our Almighty Rabb says in these verses of the Quran.
“As for those who believe and do good deeds,” now what is a good deed? That is, the things that Allah tells you to do, you need to do them, can there be something better than that? Everything that Allah tells you to do gives you life. They make you blissful forever. See, Allah says: “As for those who believe and do good deeds, Allah will pay their rewards in full, and Allah will give them more out of Allah’s grace.”
You see, the bounty and grace of Allah (c.c.) shall continue forever, for they are endless and boundless; they have no end, they have no bounds. O, Muslim! Allah does not need them, and will give them to you! O, you who believe! O, valuable men and women who have good deeds (amal-e-saleh)! Allah’s everlasting reward and grace is yours. Come, and truly believe, and become real Muslims. Islam has embraced all humanity. There is no separatism in Islam. There is no reactionism in Islam. All that is backward and outdates is out of Islam. Islam has embraced all eras, and it is Allah who owns all eras. It is Allah Ta’ala who sent down the Quran. You see, the entirety of all eras, and the supernatural and holy values that the divine omnipotence (qudrah) brought forth, and all of the divine laws are Islam.
“Those who disdain from worshipping Allah, and who are arrogant, then Allah will punish them with a severe punishment,” it is Allah who says these, “and they will not find any protector or any helper for themselves other than Allah.” There is not a second deity, where will you find it? Once the justice of Allah who is One and is the owner of all omnipotence (qudrah) is manifested, then some people have found themselves in Janna (Paradise), and come found what they deserved in Jahannam (Hell). See, everyone has found what they deserve, for the divine justice is manifested. We have to announce, and you can’t say nobody informed you. We would not be doing our duty if we don’t announce, and we would have disliked you. We would not have felt pity for you. We would not have felt pity for ourselves either. We would be disliking ourselves, and you.
You see, you are from us and we are from you, aren’t we all servants (qul) of Allah. We are the ummah (people) of Muhammad. We are the children of Adam. We are the servants (qul) of our Almighty Rabb. Should we not narrate Islam and the Quran which incorporate all divine values in itself?
There is Janna (Paradise). There is the endless and boundless mercy (rahmat) of Allah. Then, why should we go for the severe punishment of Allah, and incur Allah’s wrath? Let us get our heads straight! Let us prostrate in namāz (prayer), and supplicate to Allah.
“My Allah! Guide us! Turn us from the wrongs to the right. Change the wrongs into rights! Destine us to every truth! Make our words and deeds bright and right.”
This is a prayer or dua of Prophet Muhammad. See, everything about Prophet Muhammad was right. Everything about him was nūr (light). The nūr (light) of Muhammad is the first substance (jawhar) of all the worlds. Do you see how he supplicates? He says, “My Allah!” and he prostrated in namāz (prayer). He bowed down, and opened his hands in prayer to Janâb-i Haqq. He loved Allah throughout all his life, with every fibre of his being. He is the Beloved of Allah, and he still supplicates to Allah. He supplicates by saying, “Make my affairs righteous and nūr (light).”

My dear brother! We’re not speaking anyone’s mind here. We’re explaining Allah’s Book to the extent of our ability, and it is what we narrate. I am not talking about anyone, saying he is my master or something. I am not talking about a leader of mine, nor a pioneer of mine. Then what am I talking about? I say nobody’s words constitute the religion, except Allah and Prophet Muhammad. Only the mujtahids who know the two sources well have a say, and they must be competent in both sources. That is, those who know the Quran and the Sunnah have a say in qiyās (analogical reasoning). Besides, Islam already has four main sources: The Quran, Sunnah, ijmā al-ummah (whole community consensus), and qiyās (analogical reasoning of the jurists). As for the origin, it is the Quran and the Sunnah. The Quran is the Book of Allah Ta’ala. As for the Sunnah, its pioneer is Prophet Muhammad. See, Muhammad is the Prophet who implements what he receives from Allah and then spread them to humanity. He is the Prophet whom Allah manifested upon all the worlds as a mercy (rahmat). One of the greatest graces of Allah to the worlds is the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad, Al-Quran Al-Karim, and the religion of Islam. See, all the worlds are manifestations of Allah’s mercy (rahmat). Do you think it is logical to leave this endless and boundless mercy (rahmat)? Tomorrow, you shall die and you will go to Jahannam (Hell)? Is this not a pity? Is this good?
Let us supplicate to our Rabb day and night. “My Allah! Shield us from polytheism (shirk). Shield us from disbelief (kufr). Shield us from corruption (nifaq).” Let us supplicate by saying, “Please, settle the tawhid iman (monotheism) of Islam into our hearts forever.”
My friend, if only you knew how much I love you! That is why I am telling you all this. I am addressing the whole humanity here! The entire mankind, all people are our potential brothers, for we are all servants (qul) of Allah. See, we are already brothers in terms of being servants (qul) of Allah, being humans. We are all brothers for we are all children of Adam.
Moreover, if we become brothers in faith (iman) as well, then true brotherhood is brotherhood of faith (iman). Is it even humane to deny Allah? Can there be humanity or brotherhood by denying Islam, the Quran, and Prophet Muhammad? Islam wants to embrace you, but you deny it. The Muslims want to embrace you, but you reject them, and then follow the pathway of the disbelievers (ahlul kufr). Is that even logical?
Let’s say you denied. Do you think you will be able to deny Azrael as well? Did you deny while you were being created? You could not. Will you be able to deny while dying? You will not be able to. They will take you from your grave, will you deny then? You will not be able to deny. You will come to the gathering (mahshar), will you deny? You will not be able to. You will be brought to the book in Mahkamah al-Kubra (the Greater Court). Will you be able to say you will not answer? You will be enchained, and thrown into Jahannam (Hell). Will you be able to say that you will not go to Jahannam (Hell)? I am begging as if I am begging a crazy person, get your minds together.
Let us see what Janâb-i Haqq said in the following verses.
The hodja is reciting the 174th and 175th verses of Surah al-Nisa .
“O, mankind! Surely, a proof came to you from your Rabb,” that is Prophet Muhammad (asw). And Janâb-i Haqq says, “We have sent down a clear nūr (light) to you.”
See, if you are looking for a concrete evidence proof about which there is no doubt, a holy evidence, a glorious evidence, and a right evidence, then that evidence is Prophet Muhammad Mustafa. If you are looking for a clear nūr (light), then there is Al-Quran Al-Karim, and the nūr (light) of Muhammad, which is Islam. Islam is the religion of all Prophets. Let me repeat that. Islam is the religion of all Prophets. The only religion of Allah the One is Islam.

It went along with Adam and the other Prophets. It was renewed with Prophet Muhammad. It continues its journey to the Last Day. Understand this, do not turn a deaf ear. Do not neglect it, understand this truth!
“As for those who believe in Allah and hold fast to Allah, Allah will admit them to a great bounty and grace, and Allah will guide them on a straight path that leads to Allah.”
You see, Islam is the way that comes from Allah, and it leads toward Allah. But that is only possible if you believe and hold fast to Allah’s commands in Islam, and do you duty while holding fast to the commands. Then, this is a mercy (rahmat) and a bounty (lutf) from Allah to you. And Allah will admit you into this grace.
And Allah will guide you to Allah, the pleasure of Allah, the endless and boundless Janna (Paradise) and Jamal (Beauty). Allah will guide you on the way that is Islam.
The hodja is reciting an excerpt of the 175th verse of Surah al-Nisa .
Says, “Allah will convey you to a straight path, and guide,” but to whom? Allah says this to the faithful one who holds fast to the commands of Allah. Now, don’t you say you were not informed! There is the guidance, generosity, bounty and grace, friendship, and endless and boundless gifts of Allah. So, what should we do? We should ask Allah for our salvation. Let us use the power and strength we received from Allah for Allah.
Now, about the last verse of Surah al-Nisa, it is a verse about kalāla. Now, this Surah al-Nisa  means The Surah of Women. It incorporates many divine commands, and in its last verse it gives information about kalāla. At the same we can find Allah’s distribution of inheritance abundantly in this verse. We can find Allah’s distribution of the inheritance. There is a perfect distribution for all inheritors whether male or female. That is the distribution of Allah, and that is justice, but it must be discovered well and understood well. Those who can’t understand it claim Islam is outdated, but actually what they see is their own brains in the mirror, they are actually declaring their mindset outdated. They only see their charred brains in the mirror. They escaped from the nūr (light) of Islam.
They did not like the distribution of Allah, and they are distributing things according to their whim, and then they call it law. The real law and remedy are the social justice that Allah brought forth, and the divine distribution. If those who see themselves outdated have certain rights that are mixed-into their wrongs, then the truths are taken from the law of Islam.
Then again, they are taken from the Quran, Prophet Muhammad, and the law of Islam. The address for all the truths in the world is Allah, the Messenger, and Islam. All truths belong to Islam. Each and every truth belongs to Islam, as for the wrongs they are out of Islam.
See, even if it is your enemy who has something right, then it is right and it belongs to Islam. He may have utilized that truth for his own good, and the other may not because it did not serve his or her purpose, this is another thing. That is up to everyone’s free-will, but this is the reality. There can’t be flaws or imperfections in the justice of Allah. Those who dislike the justice of Allah are already bleeding humanity dry, and they are tyrannizing humanity. They are worse than the vampires, they are bleeding humanity dry today. One side piles up all the wealth while the other side is left to starve. They are wasting the bounties (nimat) that Allah gave, they are using them for evil purposes. Was it Allah who instructed you to manufacture weapons and use them to murder people in masses? Is this why Janâb-i Haqq gave you all these means, so that you may kill people?
Time Stamp: 36:50
Why are you using the means that Allah gave you for evil? Where peace, tranquillity, and brotherhood are possible?
The hodja is reciting the 176th verse of Surah al-Nisa .
“They seek fatwa (ruling) from you,” says Janâb-i Haqq to Prophet Muhammad. Says, “My Beloved! They ask you for a fatwa (ruling). Say, ‘Allah gives you the ruling regarding the inheritance of kalāla (the fatherless and childless).’.”
See, Al-Quran Al-Karim consists entirely of the rulings of Allah.
“Allah gives the ruling concerning the kalāla: ‘If man died and he has no children but has a sister, then half of what he left is for her.’.” See, Allah says that half of it belongs to that sister. “If a sister who has no children dies, then his brother becomes her inheritor. But if the man who died has two sisters, then two thirds of what he left is theirs. But if the siblings are a man and a woman, then the share of the male is twice as the share of the female. Allah explains the rulings to you so that you may not go astray. Allah is All-Knower of everything.”
See this verse of the Quran is the kalāla verse.
Now, let me try to convey you more information regarding the discovery of these verses. Let us clarify things further.
