    10. 10. At-Taubah, ayaat:111-112 <ul><li>. إِنَّ اللَّهَ اشْتَرَى مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَنْفُسَهُمْ وَأَمْوَالَهُمْ بِأَنَّ لَهُمُ الْجَنَّةَ يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَيَقْتُلُونَ وَيُقْتَلُونَ وَعْدًا عَلَيْهِ حَقًّا فِي التَّوْرَاةِ وَالإنْجِيلِ وَالْقُرْآنِ وَمَنْ أَوْفَى بِعَهْدِهِ مِنَ اللَّهِ فَاسْتَبْشِرُوا بِبَيْعِكُمُ الَّذِي بَايَعْتُمْ بِهِ وَذَلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ </li></ul><ul><li>التَّائِبُونَ الْعَابِدُونَ الْحَامِدُونَ السَّائِحُونَ الرَّاكِعُونَ السَّاجِدُونَ الآمِرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَالنَّاهُونَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَالْحَافِظُونَ لِحُدُودِ اللَّهِ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ </li></ul>
    11. 11. Verse 111 <ul><li>111. Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur‘an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success . </li></ul>
    12. 12. Verse 112 <ul><li>112. (The believers whose lives Allah has purchased are) those who repent to Allah (from polytheism and hypocrisy, etc.), who worship Him, who praise Him, who fast (or go out in Allah's Cause), who bow down (in prayer), who prostrate themselves (in prayer), who enjoin (people) for Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all what Isl�m has ordained) and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism of all kinds and all that Isl�m has forbidden), and who observe the limits set by Allah (do all that Allah has ordained and abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which Allah has forbidden). And give glad tidings to the believers. </li></ul>
    13. 13. Imaan is a trade agreement with Allah <ul><li>061.010 يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا هَلْ أَدُلُّكُمْ عَلَى تِجَارَةٍ تُنْجِيكُمْ مِنْ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ </li></ul><ul><li>061.011 تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَتُجَاهِدُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ بِأَمْوَالِكُمْ وَأَنْفُسِكُمْ ذَلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ </li></ul><ul><li>061.012 يَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَيُدْخِلْكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِنْ تَحْتِهَا الأنْهَارُ وَمَسَاكِنَ طَيِّبَةً فِي جَنَّاتِ عَدْنٍ ذَلِكَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ </li></ul><ul><li>061.013 وَأُخْرَى تُحِبُّونَهَا نَصْرٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَفَتْحٌ قَرِيبٌ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ </li></ul><ul><li>Al-Qur'an, 061.010-013 (As-Saff ) </li></ul>
    14. 14. Nature of this trade with Allah <ul><li>Allah (SWT) is the real owner of every thing with man. He gave these to man as trust. </li></ul><ul><li>Free will and freedom of choice is given to man to act as owner or a trustee. </li></ul><ul><li>Trade with Allah (SWT) means to choose to act as a trustee and not as a owner. </li></ul><ul><li>In return, Allah (SWT) guarantees Jannah (Paradise) in the hereafter. </li></ul>
    15. 15. Implications of this trade. <ul><li>1-Two tests : </li></ul><ul><li>By entering in this trade, man faces two critical tests; </li></ul><ul><li>a- Does he accept to be the trustee and not owner. </li></ul><ul><li>b- Does he surrenders his freedom to the obedience of Allah (SWT) in lieu of the promise of Jannah in the hereafter. </li></ul>
    16. 16. 2-Difference between legal Islam and true fulfillment of this trade accord <ul><li>Legal Islam : Declaration of Shahadah, establish Ibadaat and other commands </li></ul><ul><li>True to this trade accord : </li></ul><ul><li>a- Does not consider his time, money, belongings to be his assets but those of Allah. </li></ul><ul><li>b- Does not spend out of his amanah according to his will but according to the Allah’s Will. </li></ul><ul><li>c- Struggles and strives utmost in the cause of Allah and not for his personal causes and likes. </li></ul>
    17. 17. 3-Differentiation between Islamic way of life and Kufr way of life <ul><li>Islamic way of life : Muslim acts in obedience of Allah’s commands in all aspects of his life. He may be forgetful for a short while, but when he realizes it, he turns to Allah. </li></ul><ul><li>Kufr way of life : One acts independently of Allah’s Will in some or all aspects of his life. One may be labeled as a Muslim but this attitude violates the spirit of this trade with Allah. </li></ul>
    18. 18. 4- This trade accord means to submit to the Will of Allah defined in Quran and Sunnah. <ul><li>This trade requires that one finds the true Will of Allah in Quran and Sunnah of Prophet Mohammad (SAW). </li></ul><ul><li>Personal definitions or definitions besides those two sources are unacceptable. </li></ul><ul><li>Why the reward of Jannah in Akhirah? </li></ul><ul><li>This trade accord can only be completed in the Akhirah when it will be determined if man fulfilled his part of the deal. </li></ul>
    19. 19. Are these promises present in Injeel and Taurah? <ul><li>We find few statements of Jesus (AS) in present day gospels which are synonymous with this ayah: </li></ul><ul><li>Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:10 </li></ul><ul><li>He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it. Matthew,10:39 </li></ul><ul><li>And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters, or father or mother or wife or children or lands for my name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold and inherit eternal life. Matthew.19:29. </li></ul>
    20. 20. Do you find these in Taurah? <ul><li>We do not find it in the present day Old Testament or Taurah. </li></ul><ul><li>Present day Taurah is not complete. It was destroyed and then re compiled by Ezra from memoirs. </li></ul><ul><li>As the time passed, Jewish traditions, prejudices, desires, superstitions, commentaries were added. </li></ul>
    21. 21. Qualities necessary for believers to fulfill their part of the bargain.
    22. 22. Tai’boon-Those who do Taubah <ul><li>Taubah means to turn back and return.

    23. 23.
