Sura Maryam verse 41
Bismillah ArRahman ArRahim. Allahumma Rabbana Zidna ilma. Allahumma Rabbana Ihdinas sira talmustaqim. Amma ba’du
We had learned that Isa a.s, was born miraculously, and he was just a man. He said verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord, therefore you must serve, submit, pray to Him only, this is the true path.
But christians made him a mediator to Allah.
- They promote him as the Son of God.
- They gave him all attributes of a son of God.
- They do bidaah in zikir to him.
- By doing so, they had forgotten about the Lord.
The Syiahs do the same for Sy Ali, Hasan, Husin, all their imams . They had forgotten about the Lord. The Habibs also the same, praising Muhammad Rasulullah and saints, forgot the Lord. The Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and others are also the same. So to Syiahs and Habibs, use verses about christianity, when you met them. You will be surprised if you do. Today’s verses are about Abraham a.s. and the story of him are repeated many times in the Quran.
So why Allah, tells us about Abraham a.s .
It’s about preaching to your parents , friends and fellow countrymen . It is the most important preaching. You became intimidated by them yet Allah still want us to do.
Surah Maryam, Verse 41:
وَاذْكُرْ فِي الْكِتَابِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ إِنَّهُ كَانَ صِدِّيقًا نَّبِيًّا
And mention Ibrahim in the Book; surely he was a truthful man, a prophet.
Allah said onto you all. Also mentioned in the Quran about Abraham a.s, he was a man of truth and a prophet. Abraham a.s were to preach his father, ie his parents, his people and his king. And he was to do it alone. Alone against everyone. And he did just that. Without fear. He just follow what his Lord told him to do. I, when I felt depressed, I will think about Abraham a.s, then I became anew again.
Surah Maryam, Verse 42:
إِذْ قَالَ لِأَبِيهِ يَا أَبَتِ لِمَ تَعْبُدُ مَا لَا يَسْمَعُ وَلَا يُبْصِرُ وَلَا يُغْنِي عَنكَ شَيْئًا
When he said to his father; O my father! why do you worship what neither hears nor sees, nor does it avail you in the least:
Remember when he said to his father, after he was burned, O my father! Why do you worship that neither hears nor sees, and can’t profit you anything.
His father was a maker of idols and worship idols that neither hears nor sees, hence can’t answer his dua nor can’t do anything. This was his first introduction to his preaching. So when we preach to Syiahs, Habibs or christians or other relegions, focus on their main beliefs, ie what makes them astray. Don’t answer anything else about us but focus the main issue
Surah Maryam, Verse 43:
يَا أَبَتِ إِنِّي قَدْ جَاءَنِي مِنَ الْعِلْمِ مَا لَمْ يَأْتِكَ فَاتَّبِعْنِي أَهْدِكَ صِرَاطًا سَوِيًّا
O my father! truly the knowledge has come to me which has not come to you, therefore follow me, I will guide you on a right path:
O my father! To me has come knowledge which has not reach you. Follow me, my teachings, I will guide you to a straight path.
Knowledge of tauhid to Allah and you don’t know tauhid. Ie I have learned tafseer and you don’t. Since I know and you don’t, just follow my teachings, I will guide you to a straight path.
Surah Maryam, Verse 44:
يَا أَبَتِ لَا تَعْبُدِ الشَّيْطَانَ إِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ كَانَ لِلرَّحْمَٰنِ عَصِيًّا
O my father! serve not the Shaitan, surely the Shaitan is disobedient to the Beneficent Allah:
O my father! if you worship idols, you don’t serve satan as Satan is a rebel against Allah ArRahman.
Satan is a rebel against Allah. Don’t serve him. Any worship to anyone is worshipping satan. Any zikir that weren’t from sunnah, are zikir from satan.
Surah Maryam, Verse 45:
يَا أَبَتِ إِنِّي أَخَافُ أَن يَمَسَّكَ عَذَابٌ مِّنَ الرَّحْمَٰنِ فَتَكُونَ لِلشَّيْطَانِ وَلِيًّا
O my father! surely I fear that a punishment from the Beneficent Allah should afflict you so that you should be a friend of the Shaitan.
O my father! I fear that a punishment will be afflicted to you by ArRahman as it’s a shrik to God if you worship idols, by worshipping idols, you will become a friend of satan.
Worshipping idols is worshipping satan, shrik. Zikir which is not from sunnah, zikir from satan. This is a warning. So when you do preaching, always give a warning from Allah if they don’t want to follow quran and sunnah.
Surah Maryam, Verse 46:
قَالَ أَرَاغِبٌ أَنتَ عَنْ آلِهَتِي يَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ لَئِن لَّمْ تَنتَهِ لَأَرْجُمَنَّكَ وَاهْجُرْنِي مَلِيًّا
He said: Do you dislike my gods, O Ibrahim? If you do not desist I will certainly revile you, and leave me for a time.
His father shows his disbelief of tauhid. He said to Abraham a.s. Do you hate my gods O Abraham?.
Idols are representation of mediators, like christian worship Isa a.s, saints or angels. His father was worshipping mediators to God, they said. Ie they said that saints or angels are representation of God. If you don’t stop preaching me….I will indeed stone you to the death. so stop Abraham preaching me. Now get away from me for good.
Surah Maryam, Verse 47:
قَالَ سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكَ سَأَسْتَغْفِرُ لَكَ رَبِّي إِنَّهُ كَانَ بِي حَفِيًّا
He said: Peace be on you, I will pray to my Lord to forgive you; surely He is ever Affectionate to me:
Abraham a.s said. Farewell my father, we can’t give Salam to kuffar. I will pray to my Lord for your forgiveness, for He is to me Most Gracious.
Abraham a.s at this time, don’t know that he can’t ask for forgiveness to a kuffar. It is stated in quran that what Abraham a.s did the promise is only his promise. Allah doesn’t.
Surah Maryam, Verse 48:
وَأَعْتَزِلُكُمْ وَمَا تَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ وَأَدْعُو رَبِّي عَسَىٰ أَلَّا أَكُونَ بِدُعَاءِ رَبِّي شَقِيًّا
And I will withdraw from you and what you call on besides Allah, and I will call upon my Lord; may be I shall not remain unblessed in calling upon my Lord.
Abraham a.s said to his father. I will turn away from you all and those whom they worshipped, he went as far as no one worship idols.
Of the years Abraham a.s preach, only 2 had accepted his preaching, his wife Sarah and nephew Luth as. We bestowed on him Issac and his grand son Jacob as.
Allah calm Abraham by giving him a son and can see his grandson..
Surah Maryam, Verse 50:
وَوَهَبْنَا لَهُم مِّن رَّحْمَتِنَا وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُمْ لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ عَلِيًّا
And We granted to them of Our mercy, and We left (behind them) a truthful mention of eminence for them.
And We bestowed of our Mercy on them, made them prophets. We granted them, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob a.s, lofty honor on the tongue of people. Everyone said good things about them.
