And [recall] when We took your covenant, [O Children of Israel, to abide by the Torah] and We raised over you the mount, [saying], "Take what We have given you with determination and remember what is in it that perhaps you may become righteous (develop taqwa)."
Hold it with Strength Take it with Determinat ion Implement its Teachings Follow its Commands Continue to Refer back to it
Taqwa Consciousness & Awareness of Allah Become Conscious of Your Deeds Abstinence from Sins from Difficulties in this world from Difficulties of Akhirah
AYAH 64 Then you turned away after that. And if not for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy, you would have been among the losers.
When we are in trouble, we make promises with Allah, Once we are out of it, we forget The respite, the delay is a special mercy from Allah. Its Allah’s Fadl that we are here in a gathering of knowledge Our life should be spent with this book لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ
And you had already known about those who transgressed among you concerning the Sabbath, and We said to them, "Be apes, despised."
SABBATHِ Holy DayNo Work Entire Day of Ibadah Forbidden to Fish
We shouldn’t prefer this World over Hereafter We should not leave our Faraidh for some more work hours We should trust Allah, that He will provide us
Trickery & Deceit is forbidden If someone disobeys Allah through his actions but in his speech he says that he is obeying Allah, he is misguided Intelligent is the one who takes the word of Allah as it is and does not misinterpret it. Allah can make anyone a deterrent Example for Others They changed Allah’s Commands, Allah changed their faces
And [recall] when Moses said to his people, "Indeed, Allah commands you to slaughter a cow." They said, "Do you take us in ridicule?" He said, "I seek refuge in Allah from being among the ignorant."
True knowledge is Action When any command comes, we should submit We should honor the commands of Allah, we should take them seriously Beautiful Response of Musa, He didn’t argue back rather he sought refuge in Allah
They said, "Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is." [Moses] said, "[ Allah ] says, 'It is a cow which is neither old nor virgin, but median between that,' so do what you are commanded."
Delaying Tactics are very obvious An arrogant & carefree attitude towards Messenger, does not make him/his ways (sunnah) less important They made things difficult upon themselves, so Allah made it difficult upon them.
They said, "Call upon your Lord to show us what is her color." He said, "He says, 'It is a yellow cow, bright in color - pleasing to the observers.' "
They said, "Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is. Indeed, [all] cows look alike to us. And indeed we, if Allah wills, will be guided."
Do not make excuses, do not argue – if Allah has said so, then do it. sami’naa wa ata’naa. A person should not delay in doing good Importance of Insha’Allah No Blames – No Excuses – Show results [M AlShareef]
He said, "He says, 'It is a cow neither trained to plow the earth nor to irrigate the field, one free from fault with no spot upon her.' " They said, "Now you have come with the truth." So they slaughtered her, but they could hardly do it.
QuestionRelevant Helps Improve Action Irrelevant Wastes Time
Do not ask questions that would make the simple Deen difficult. Too many questions are not liked Allah dislikes for you three things: 1)Qeel wa Qaal [He said, she said] 2) Wasting wealth 3) asking too many questions.
And [recall] when you slew a man and disputed over it, but Allah was to bring out that which you were concealing.
So, We said, "Strike the slain man with part of it." Thus does Allah bring the dead to life, and He shows you His signs that you might reason.
