All of them are neatly organized massages, I love having butter fried from uncle sir, who does this for us. $100 fine. So that is that let's get started on the Lord. Thank you all for being patient with Villa human Hamdulillah, south of San Juan Sula. He was early he was having surgery was in the Emory Waterloo doctors I'm Melissa and EF Capaldi. robina attina, Dr. Santa Clara de hacer la Verna salaam aleikum to regard to who we are starting today. The 26th Joseph, on the 26th of june of the Quran starts with sort of a half Surah 46 ends with surah

00:03:17 --> 00:03:54

number 32. That includes sort of top sort of 46 surah, Muhammad surah, 47, surah, Al Fatah, surah, 48, surah, Surah 49, sort of off sort of 50 and the, you know, the little bit of surah 51 surah. As you can imagine, as you can see now actually, the number of surahs purchase is now increasing, increasing increasing. And that is what happens when you get to the end of the Quran. You know, the sugars are shorter and shorter, and the ones in the beginning are longer. And that is how the Quran was the ordering of the surah of the Quran. So Excuse me.

00:03:58 --> 00:04:01

There's a lot of kids crying in the background, I mute myself to

00:04:02 --> 00:04:05

remind my wife to take care of them and

00:04:06 --> 00:04:09

not that she doesn't take care of them she does take care of them but take them away.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:45

For the next hour orbit. Buy. As the Quran was ordered by Allah, Allah as commanded by Allah to gibreel to the prophets as a lamp. So the origin of the Quran is divine, the ordering of the ayat is divine, from Allah subhanaw taala and this is how he ordered it, where the beginning parts are lengthier and the ending parts are shorter and there's a little bit of wisdom in that that you'll appreciate which is you know, as you reach the end, you know, perhaps your you know, the the smaller students have this really

00:04:46 --> 00:04:59

fast nature they they catch your attention. And perhaps that's a great way to end off the study of the Koran write something that you know, you remember as memorable at the end and these from short stories are extremely memory

00:05:00 --> 00:05:15

Alright, let's get into it. Two o'clock begins with Jaime. This is the seventh of the seven homies. This is the last time in Hamming then zero kitabi min Allahu Allah Aziz al Hakim, this is the books and from God the Almighty, the Wise One Maha lochness somehow it was

00:05:17 --> 00:05:31

in love and Happy journey masama we create the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them purely for just ends and for a specified term, but those who reject faith turn away from what they have been warned off

00:05:32 --> 00:05:47

gave this is a very important surah it talks about starts by talking about hammam and the Quran, right? It is going to speak about the Quran more in IRA number.

00:05:51 --> 00:06:36

And number nine here, right but in lemma you have Eli I am the I'm the I'm only following what has been revealed to me also so excuse me at number 12. This is the book in the Arabic language, fulfilling previous prophecies to forewarn those who do evil and to bring good news of those who do good. So again, the surah speaks about the Quran. But here are the links the Quran with Musa and as I said, this is like the surahs are showing the baton has been passed on from Moosa to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and here it mentions women commonly he could Musa Mr. Manuel Rama yet the scripture of Moses before and it was a guide and a blessing. And this is a book that's also a guide

00:06:36 --> 00:06:59

on the best thing that confirms what was in the previous scriptures. And for warns of, you know, you know, what's coming afterwards, and whatnot. Okay. So this is a very interesting, this is the surah. It speaks about the claims of race if you were to go back a page, police say that

00:07:01 --> 00:07:02

have you thought about

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

the Quraysh?

00:07:06 --> 00:07:11

A lost mother calls them heedless, they are not our

00:07:12 --> 00:07:51

own guru Marley Luna, they are reject the fate they turn away from what they have been warned on more or they'll be someone who turns away. That's an expression of being someone who is healers. Good. And that's how Allah describes them in the very beginning of the surah. Okay, and he asked them an interesting question, have you thought about those that you call apart apart from God? Show me what they have created on the earth or only mother hollow coming out? Right? If you think that, you know, these, these idols are God, show me what they have done? If you think that this, you know, this human being or God took the form of a human being and came out through the womb of a mother,

00:07:51 --> 00:08:30

show me what he has created, right? Or they do have, do they ever share the heavens? Bring me a book revealed before this or some other vestige of knowledge? If you're telling the truth, bring some evidence, show us some reason for what you believe or what hot why you live the way you live. But other Quran asks her age to think critically for themselves. The Punisher, unfortunately, though, are going to make up a whole bunch of, you know, Miss directions here. I am Yahoo, Luna, Farah, do they mean to say that he has fabricated it? They're saying he's making it up? He is also lamb is not. You know, he's the author of this book, The Quran, there's no divine revelation, he's made it

00:08:30 --> 00:09:13

up the response, okay. All in if the right to number one part of the responsibilities is gonna be coal, coal, coal, three straight iron, okay, that have cool as like responses. Okay, first part of the response. If I have fabricated myself, you will not be able to do anything to save me from God. If I'm lying about God, God is going to take care of me. You don't even have to worry about me. Because he knows well, what, you know, talk, we know Elgin, and he is a witness over what we are what we do, and he is sufficient as a witness. I like I if I was to make it up, I have bigger concerns. God is gonna take me to account I don't have to even worry about you. that's point number

00:09:13 --> 00:09:59

one. Okay. Point number two, because again, the idea the concept of, of there being an almighty God was acceptable to them, they accepted that the Prophet is saying, if I was making it up, you don't think that the Almighty God will take me to task. That's number one. Number two. I'm not going to be the Omarosa. I'm not the first of the messengers. It's not the first time God has sent a message to a prophet. Okay. I'm not the first. I am the last. Okay. And I do not know what will be done with me nor with you. I don't know the future. I only know in Ilana, you have like, I only follow what has been revealed to me I do not follow anything but what is revealed to me is

00:10:00 --> 00:10:22

As a way of saying, I only follow up what has been revealed to me and I am only a plane Warner, we're in Atlanta. Do you know what I mean? I'm a clear Warner, my job is not to do anything but to convey to you the warning that I have received a revelation. So this is not a new thing. Quraysh This is something that has happened in the past, don't think don't think that this is just unprecedented. It's not okay.

00:10:23 --> 00:11:08

I am a human being I don't make up stuff, I will only convey to you what God has sent me. And I don't know the future. Last part of the response will arrive in Canada, and they will come forward to me, have you thought about this thing? If you What if you if the Quran is really from God, and you reject it? What if really, this is the word of God, and you have rejected it? And what if there is people for money is evil? who testified to similarity of it? In the from the earliest scripture, and maybe others who are not on a she's for our man our start button, they start believing in it, and you're too arrogant? What does that say about you? The Quran was sent to you or people of

00:11:08 --> 00:11:43

Malaysia through a person that is from your city? He was you are, they have got you have the great honor of having the greatest honor actually of having the last prophet be from your city speaking your language, Curtis talking to you directly? And what happens? What would that say about you, if you reject Him, and somebody else believes in him in the Lord. I mean, Indeed, Allah does not guide the evil doers. Allah says the actual believers are as follows in the Latina color of Manila,

00:11:44 --> 00:11:46

they are the ones who say Our Lord is God.

00:11:48 --> 00:12:31

So muster pub, then they and they remain firm, have no fear, nor shall they grieve. They are the people of Paradise, that they will live in there forever. And that will be a reward for what they have done. Okay, now the surah turns to a very interesting scene. As you remember, I told you that surah speaks about the our right, inviting people to the practice of Islam, inviting people to the practice of the faith. This is primarily the concern of the surah. And as we have seen, in all the hominems, the people inviting are weak, and the people being invited are strong, yet the power of the truth shines out, even when the balance is, you know, out of whack or the power dynamics is out

00:12:31 --> 00:13:15

of whack, so to say, Okay, so what is now the dollar that is being presented here? The scenario being presented presented is that we're inside the family. Okay, that we're inside the family. What does that look like? Well, we're saying in Santa BYD that he aksana the best case scenario is if 15 and 16. And the worst case scenario is is 17 and 18. Let's look at that. Okay. Also in Santa BYD that he is Santa we have enjoined on man kindness to his parent again the he keeps using the word man in son is human okay insan is human maybe another transition would say human right? They all say man for some reason I don't know why but insaan believe me it means human get I'm

00:13:16 --> 00:13:18

sure you've enjoyed kindness

00:13:19 --> 00:13:41

you've enjoyed on human beings that they be kind to their parents, okay. In fact kindness is not actually very accurate either kindness is you know, like something that is okay. You know, you can say it's like five out of 10 sad is 10 out of 10 right? That is like the level that Allah Papa has enjoined upon

00:13:42 --> 00:14:34

humans and how they should treat their parents Okay. Why hammer Allah to mu Quran wa to Cora his motherboard him in pain and gave birth to him in pain bore him in pain and pain, she gave birth to him, okay, this was very painful for her. And then after that, after the birth is not all over you know, is bearing and weaning takes 30 months, there is another many months of breastfeeding and diaper changes and and and, and you could argue is still that continues afterwards okay. This is just a glimpse of the difficulties all parents go through all parents all over the world go through these problems, these situations, these challenges, and for that reason, that they go through so

00:14:34 --> 00:14:56

much for you as a child, you should be s and you should do a son to them, the utmost level of excellence, kindness, mercy, love all that combined. That is what you do towards that. Okay, so that is just a quick introduction. Now the other the darker part is coming up here. Okay. Well, before we move on to that, I want you to

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

appreciate something of the puranic

00:15:00 --> 00:15:45

expression. It says we enjoined on man kindness to his parents, right? Parents, correct parents, our father and mother. Yes. Okay. But then I proceeded to speak about his mother bore him in pain, and in pain, she gave birth to him. And then she weaned him and breastfed him afterwards. Right, the father isn't even mentioned in the terms of like the sacrifice that the parents are going through, not to say that the Father is not sacrificing a force he has to, but really the pain and suffering that the mother goes through, to bring the child into the world, and to raise a child, especially in the initial years. It there is no comparison between that and what the Father, you know, is going

00:15:45 --> 00:16:23

through in terms of pain and suffering. So this is a lot paying homage to the difficulties that of mother goes to, even though he was he speaks about both parents. It's almost like the mother's sacrifices, especially in this beginning years, overshadow the sacrifices of everybody and the father as well. So it's a really interesting little expression. I wanted you to appreciate that. And how the Quran appreciates mothers in this matter. And of course, the both of them in a hadith corroborate seven someone asked him who should I be the most kind to the Prophet said your mother and then the man said, Then who's number two? The Prophet said your mother, he said who's number

00:16:23 --> 00:17:04

three Prophet said your mother. And then he said it was number four, the promise that your father right? Just to give that understanding that that's how much we should care how much we should care for them, okay. Then what happens in this if, at length, when he reaches the age of full maturity and attains 40 years, 40 years is like the peak of verses powers. He says, oh, Lord, help me be grateful for your favors which you have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to do good deeds that will please you grant me righteousness in my offspring, truly, I have turned to you. And truly, I submit to you what a beautiful door, underline this door, in your forearm in your must have, make

00:17:04 --> 00:17:31

a note of the number of make this door Robbie, I was there any from here to the end, beautiful door you should make for yourself, your family for your kids. Okay? This is the best case scenario of our in the family, that if parents raised the child, and there's ups and downs, obviously, but when the child has grown up and become a fully grown man or a woman, they are, you know, devoted

00:17:32 --> 00:18:17

members of the faith, they are worshipers of Allah and they are grateful to Allah for the blessings or for the sacrifices of their parents, and now they're making the art for their parents and making Doral for their kids. That's the best case or you raise the child who's raised them well, that it worships Allah, and they are making for you. How amazing is that? And now they're concerned also for their kids, and they're focusing on their well being, and then inshallah the cycle perpetuates how beautiful Allah says, These are the people we shall accept from them, the best of what they do, and we will overlook their bad deeds, they will be among the people of paradise. This is a true promise

00:18:17 --> 00:18:20

that has been given to them. Okay.

00:18:21 --> 00:18:31

The best of what they do here at Santa marami Lu, the idea is that Allah will accept from them and reward them in the best way.

00:18:32 --> 00:19:13

And their mistakes Allah will overlook them and that's a beautiful thing when it comes to family because family we have ups and downs you have good times and bad times. Allah says if at the end, the end of this all you come out, you know, believing and you come out devoted and you come out worshiping Allah subhanaw taala. And there is gratitude to Allah and Dora for the parents and all the things that we didn't go right on last month, I will overlook them and we'll reward greatly we ask automakers of this, this is the best case scenario. The worst case scenario is the one after he who call says his parents orfila Kumar, shame upon you at a donnini and Raja khattala to kuruman

00:19:13 --> 00:19:20

probably do you threaten me with being taken out of the grave after death while many a generation has passed away before me?

00:19:22 --> 00:19:59

Well, Houma SLE esteli fan Illa Hawaii like many generations passed away before me and then has driven risen from among them. The parents would cry for God's help say believe alas for you. God's promise is the truth in Nevada law Huck via pulu. So this person respond responds and says my mother in law Saltillo will in stark contrast, here the child grows up and is it is believer has a pass stated has rejected faith has rejected the idea of God as rejected the idea of a resurrection afterlife

00:20:00 --> 00:20:43

Accountability after life says that this is all stuff that's made up, you know, I don't see any of it happening. We haven't, you know, we don't really see this happening. How can this happen in the future, this is all made up stuff. And the parents are at a loss. They're like, in a way, like I'm in, you know, Woe to you, you will be destroyed, I believe. But these please fall on deaf ears, this man has made up his mind and is on this path of destruction would like alladhina hakgala, who will call it is against such as these, that the word of God has proved true, along with the communities that went before them, gins and humans, surely they're all losers. This is unfortunately, the

00:20:43 --> 00:21:26

reality. These you know, once a person has walked this path and made up their mind and they end up dying on this way, then they will end up being counted as the losers in the hunka animosity. The worst case scenario that we're in the family is hard to invite people within the family, to morality, to worship of Allah to goodness, all of that is very, very hard. And Allah shows us two stark contrasts and examples. And then the hope is we are fearful of being in the worst case hopeful of being the best case. And we work towards that what we do is we try our best when equal Linda Raja Raja Tommy Mamadou.

00:21:28 --> 00:21:40

All will be ranked according to their deeds, all we rent according to their deeds, we will requite them in full for their actions and none will be wronged. So this is

00:21:41 --> 00:21:43

the idea of,

00:21:45 --> 00:21:54

of the dollar in the family. Now, last month, I mentioned I had what's called a Hardin, is under a coma who will have I had 21.

00:21:55 --> 00:22:42

Off that's where the sewer gets his name, tell of the brother of the brother of ad is who the brother of the Prophet that was sent to adulthood, right? why the Buddha who got Islam? He is a prophet. That's not easy. He's an Arab prophet. Oh, who that Islam is a ethnically Arab Prophet, that many, many, you know, Millennium before the Prophet some appear many, even before it's my real actually. Okay. So he is ethnically an Arab prophet. Him and Salim are the two ethnically Arab prophets in the Quran along with the force of the problem, right? These two are not mentioned in, in the in the books of in the Bible, in the canons of the Bible, and whatnot. So when Allah talks about

00:22:42 --> 00:23:16

them, he provides extra details. For example, He describes about our ad that this is the name of the tribe, our ad, this is the place where they left off and the profits they must hood and he talks about solely he says, what the name of the tribe with the mood and the place lived is hedger. Right, this is something that's very interesting. There was this was not known to the Jews and Christians who will come after and read the book. So Allah provides more information to make sure they understand what the Quran is talking about. What is that this they say this when he warned his people in the sand dunes? Indeed, Warners came before and when before him came around before him,

00:23:16 --> 00:23:20

saying worship none but God, I feel for you the punishment of an awful day.

00:23:21 --> 00:24:00

These are the Arab ancestors of courage right? These are the Arab ancestors of courage gave a lot sparklers reminded courage. This is what your ancestors did. They said have you come to us to turn us away from our deities that bring us upon being down on us what you threaten with us? If you are truthful? Of course, the prophets I don't know when that's gonna come my job is to convey the message. I am not going to be able to punish you while I can. The Arakan comments are genuine, but I see that you are ignorant people, you don't understand. You want to remain you're happy being oblivious and ignorant you happy with misguidance? Okay, you're asking for punishment. You're not

00:24:00 --> 00:24:08

asking for mercy. What kind of a you know person is that okay? Then the punishment came in the form of a cloud for Lamoureux who

00:24:09 --> 00:24:53

was stuck below deity him all the aluminum Tirana, they said, Oh, this is a cloud that will that will that will bring us rain. Yay. hamdulillah they were happy Well, I don't know if this hamdulillah but they were happy, because they will welcome rain. Well, he will who must agile to be but that that is the thing you sought to hasten that was the punishment of Allah that was coming in the form of a cloud and when it did come to the reom vihara Aleem a win with a grievous suffering to the middle kulesza in the Amarillo behalf, which will destroy everything or at destroying everything at the command of his Lord. First bahala euro Illa Sakina home and in the morning there was nothing

00:24:53 --> 00:24:59

left to be seen except their empty dwellings gave thus do We repay them

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

evildoers, chaotic energies image almajiri mean.

00:25:04 --> 00:25:53

Be warned or perish. We have empowered them in to the extent that we are not empowered you. We endowed them with hearing and sight and hearts. But neither their hearing nor their sight, nor their hearts were of the least avail to them. If God had wannabe IRT losses, they went on rejecting God's revelations, and were overwhelmed by the very thing that they thought was despicable perhaps will be him McCann will be used as the own and the parish. other towns have been destroyed before this is a this is a warding Assad Raphael, IOD and we've given you many, many various signs along your journey. So may you may return to the straight path, this is going to be a wake up call Quraysh

00:25:53 --> 00:26:38

Allah Panthers reminding you of these so that you may wake up and return. Okay, then last month talks about this is a very interesting thing. A last piece about the jinn here a group of jinn who accepted Islam, without even the process of knowing that they heard him and accepted. The idea here is again the truth. The power of the truth shines even if the conveyor of the truth is weak in stature, weaken stature like economically or socially economically they're weak, but the power of truth will shine and Allah will unexpectedly get have people who will accept Islam, they will come out of nowhere you will not have predicted them or you will not have seen them coming Yes. And this

00:26:38 --> 00:27:07

is an example of that. The the the gin the gin that Allah sent who heard the Prophet some recite Quran yes Tommy rune Al Quran Ayah number 29. Remember when we send to you a band of Jin who wish to hear the Quran, as they listen to it's a citation they said to one another, and say to be silent and listen for a man called the well lo Illa call me him wandering. And then when it was finished, they went back to the people to give them warning.

00:27:08 --> 00:27:54

They immediately accepted Islam. They said oh our people, we have heard a book which has been sent down after Moses fulfilling the predictions existing in previous scriptures. It guides to the right path and guides to the truth or people our people respond to the one who calls you to God your call mana Ji Buddha, Allah, amin OBE, believe in Him, God will forgive you your sins and protect you from a painful punishment. And the one who does not respond to God's calls can never lose him philosophy merges into law you can't escape God and you can't escape is accountability. Allah acre field Allah Allah movie, such people have clearly gone far astray. The idea here is all people have Quraysh all

00:27:55 --> 00:28:38

people who receive this message who hear about this message, if you don't accept it, someone else will allow us pantallas that's that's his way. That's the way he you know, has always done things. The question is, are you going to, you know, like, what are you going to do with the ball is in your court. And this is that story of the gin. This happened this this this story will be repeated again in Surah Qian, with a lot more detailed, that are pertinent to Suraj and so I'm going to come back to that at that point. But this is just the story is pertinent here in context in connection to Pradesh, and I wanted to share that part here while hamdulillah then we have the prophets being told

00:28:38 --> 00:29:25

not to make dua against them was their first read excuse me, come on sobre la mina Rosen, have patience, or prophet as had steadfast messengers before you, only Allah as Mina Rasul the messengers, who had strength of character, the great messengers, who are these great messengers. This is no Ibrahim and Moosa, an ISA, these are the great messengers or prophet of Allah be, you know, be firm, be firm and be patient just like they were patient. So while at a stodgy law home and do not be in haste about them, a

00:29:30 --> 00:29:35

nahoon yo my arona ma you are doing the day.

00:29:36 --> 00:29:59

When they see what they are threatened with, it will appear to them as though they had not carried longer than an hour of a day. Right the day it would seem like on the Day of Judgment, all the life that they spent was like maybe an hour. That's how short it will seem like so Don't be hasty in this life. It's too short for that. Okay Bala on

00:30:00 --> 00:30:15

This is a risk for a message to be delivered. And that's your responsibility or profit, and the people who will be destroyed, others obedient, and that's a loss responsibility. Your job is to be patient and convey patient and convey the message very important.

00:30:16 --> 00:30:21

You know, part of understanding the role of the proscenium and the

00:30:23 --> 00:30:39

US as extensions of the province solemn, that we have to not give up on people, we have to be patient, with the people, with family, with friends with those who are around us. And as we are patient with them, we shouldn't

00:30:40 --> 00:31:19

be asking or making do against them. That's the worst thing to do. We make for them. And that is the lesson there. Those were the hamming now we want to learn about 47 surah, Mohammed surah, Muhammad is called as such because the name of the Prophet is mentioned here in the second IR right here. Okay. And this surah and the next to the 47 and surah, 48. I'm gonna maybe put out sort of 48 here, these are two sutras that are like a pair of tourists, you know, there are certain sorts of foreign that are a pair, they're very closely linked. And it's like, they talk about to

00:31:21 --> 00:31:56

one concept but from the different angles, okay, so for example, the easiest example is Surah colada bill Falak and call out verbenas. Right, they both speak about protection from evil, okay, but allow the Breville Falak speaks about protection from evil that's external. One out of Robin Nast speaks about protection from evil that's internal. That's, you know, so they complement each other very beautifully. Surah 47, and Sora, 48. And many, many more students coming in the next few years, you're going to find them to be like a couplets or pairs, where they speak about this speak about

00:31:57 --> 00:31:59

war and peace.

00:32:00 --> 00:32:45

And what sort of 40 sevens with Mohammed speaks about his war, and sort of 48 sort of speaks about peace. Interesting fact is actually the word for victory. Right? victory. So the surah speaks about victory is talking about peace. Okay. That's one interesting thing to remember. What is sort of 47 surah Muhammad speaking about speaking about, basically you call a defense and foreign policy, the problem is the commander in chief of the army of the believers, he will receive instructions from Allah on how to lead the army, this surah is giving him those instructions. What happens during the war, or at times of war?

00:32:46 --> 00:33:36

Surah Al Fatah Surah 48 gives the pro some instructions about diplomacy and what should happen at times of peace, because Surah 48 is going to be talking about the peace treaty of today BIA that the Prophet Sallam signed with the people of Makkah the courage to cease fighting for 10 years Okay, so that these both This was our Medina era surahs they were revealed after the Prophet left Mecca to go to Medina surah Mohammed has a very unique style By the way, all is installed on Mohammed envy the pronoun Okay, this is unlike any other surah of the Quran. Allah Allah whom Bala whom am Salah, whom, Allah Allah whom by Allah whom are refer holla whom are Kodama Khun, I'm sorry, who ha Mola

00:33:36 --> 00:34:18

Allah home, right? You see, that is how every eye ends a very very it really stands out in its style. If you're reading it, this surah is also known as a surah of Alcatel, the surah of fighting because as I mentioned, it details what happens in the middle of the war or during times of war. Okay, and that's why it's under it needs to be understood in this manner. It needs to be understood in the manner of this is instruction from a law to the province and that was the commander in chief, okay. The introduction begins as follows God will bring to not all the good deeds of those who are bent on denying the truth and bar others from the path of God says specifically referring to Quraysh

00:34:18 --> 00:34:59

but also generically who anybody who acts like punish, okay, but under the contrary, those who believe and do good deeds and believe in what has been revealed to Muhammad salah and it is the truth from the Lord. God will remove their sins from them and set their condition right us lahab Allahu Delica Vienna de la cafaro taba own belt ala anila Dena aminata will have come in robbing him that is because the ones who deny the truth follow falsehood while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord that's why the separation I swear the differentiation galvanic God will love who didn't nasty I'm sorry. That's God's God sets forth comparisons from mankind now

00:35:00 --> 00:35:21

I'm going to give you I'm going to skip through a few I artists to give you the rules of war in Islam. Okay? And this is again, please be very mindful and understanding this is the instruction of Allah, the prophet who is the commander in chief is leading the army. Okay, when you leave in the army, what do you do? As I

00:35:23 --> 00:36:07

recall, you go for the kill. That's what battle is. And that's what it says, strike them in the neck. And once you're defeated, make them prisoners. And afterwards, either for a moment number do a mafia after that's either set them free as an act of grace, or let them ransom themselves until war is finally over. Okay? This is how this is the basics of war. There also has more detail in a hadith about war, you will get instructions about how you cannot kill non combatants. You cannot hurt the elderly, the children, the women, you cannot burn farms and destroy homes. These are all rules of engagement. Roslin gave explicitly multiple times to Sahaba. Upon battle, and this is what the

00:36:07 --> 00:36:28

Sahaba did. That's what they embodied after him. You know, if they were to win a victory over a people, they will not go in there and pillage and destroy, they will not do that. This was banned by the prophets on Sunday. Okay, but this is what it is, right? This is speaking about what happens in the middle of the war. That's what you do. Right?

00:36:31 --> 00:37:18

It is a reminder that we're larina booty roofie sobre la falando de la la, la la, la, la La home. As for those who are killed in the cause of God, He will never let their deeds be in vain. You know, the martyrs, they are going to be, you know, in improved condition, they will be in Paradise, their lives will not last for no purpose. Okay, so that's point number one. Point number two is when you are in war, in tonsorial, Ohio and circum understand, oh believers, if you sucker God, He will sucker you just means I don't know what this means actually done sort of law means you are giving victory you are fighting in the way you're supposed to fight. If you do that, then God will take

00:37:18 --> 00:37:45

care of you and circum he'll give you victory as well. And he will give you your He will make your footsteps firm or he'll make your feet firm. This is an expression in Arabic. Imagine the image someone's feet are firm. That means they are they're you know, they're they're stable, they're not they can just be knocked over. So he's gonna give you strength. He's gonna give you the ability to withstand difficulties that come as part of war.

00:37:47 --> 00:37:59

Well, inika photo for das Allahu Allah armello but as for those who are bent on denying the truth, destruction will be their Lord and God will make their leads come to nothing. Okay. So this is that.

00:38:01 --> 00:38:08

Also, it mentioned as a warning to the people of orange, okay, the people of flourish are warned here.

00:38:10 --> 00:38:52

Look, I am in Korea. How many times towns have we destroyed greater in strength than your city Gell Mann, Aria tickle Lottie rajyotsava. Like now, then your city which has driven you out, and there was no help to them, we see this surah is talking, you know, the adversary here is not just everybody who is not a Muslim. The adversary here is the army of the Quraysh. And anybody who acts like the army of declaration, I mean, are restricting it only to like history, something historical, it can be applied to anybody afterwards. But they have to be acting the way that people of British were acting. It's not just any non Muslim and the evidence for that is Aria, it's your city, right?

00:38:52 --> 00:39:01

Your city that drove you out, that's the people push. So this is speaking specifically about that. It's a warning for the people of Quraysh that Allah gives.

00:39:03 --> 00:39:23

There is a i a number 19 speaks about farlam and nahu La Ilaha Illa. Allah was thoughtfully done because well move me Nina. Minato Allahu Allahu taala. Welcome, Masako. This is actually a very important idea. Okay. It's a very important idea it speaks about.

00:39:26 --> 00:39:28

It speaks about

00:39:29 --> 00:39:59

knowing that there is no god except Allah. It starts with no this. Okay? This is an interesting interjection when it comes to the to to the topic of war because you say, Well, what, what is this? What does education have to do with war? Right? Well, I'm going to show you an idea here as soon as number nine, Isaiah 122 speaks about war as well. But it says it's not right for all the believers to go out in time of war altogether. A group of them

00:40:00 --> 00:40:46

should stay back in order to acquire deeper knowledge of the religion, to warn their people so that they can guard themselves against evil. You see, this is something you find consistently in the Quran, there is a there's a war going on, people have to go to fight. But this should be a group of people who are dedicated to study and academia, and particularly study of the religion so that the war doesn't consume the society. And we don't just become warmongers. There's a group of people who are warning the army and the advising the, the the upper ranks that this is not the purpose itself, in and of itself of the faith. Right? If you don't have that corrective force those checks and

00:40:46 --> 00:41:33

balances, you could easily become just a, you know, any other Empire like any other, you know, like, like the dozens of conquering empires in the world. That's not what Islam is. It's not a conquering Empire. It's not coming to loot and pillage and destroy, right? And these people who are studying are there as Warners for their own people but also to protect the power of powerful Muslim army from becoming like a rampaging Empire gave very important it makes you understand that even in times of war last month, that makes us gives us understandings of what is the you know what, what is going on, okay, now, in the middle of war, there are going to be people who are cowards, the Quran is

00:41:33 --> 00:41:37

going to say that is unacceptable. You cannot be a coward. Okay.

00:41:39 --> 00:42:23

You cannot be a coward when it comes to war I number 20 where Hoon Medina Avenue Lola mozila, Pura vida, como como todo que el rey de La Nina people Ruby Emerald on yonder una la Conover on mushy Allah Himachal motiva Allah Allah home bar to mahalo model, okay, those who believe ask why no chapter about fighting has been sent down because fighting was not allowed until later on in the life of the Rasul Allah K. Yet when a decisive chapter that mentions fighting send down, you can see the sick of heart, feel Kuru be him Mara, remember that expression. And their heart there is this sickness and disease. This is not like they have like cholesterol or something. This is a spiritual

00:42:23 --> 00:42:33

disease. They're looking at, they're looking at your profit as if they were under the shadow of death, as if that is about to come and overtake them, you know, they're scared out of their minds.

00:42:35 --> 00:42:43

What's more appropriate is that they should have been obedient, and they would have should have said what is appropriate.

00:42:45 --> 00:43:24

Further as well under when the decision is taken to go to battle, it would be better for them if they acted sincerely towards God, instead of trying to undermine the profit instead of being scared out of their minds. Instead of trying to do everything to prevent a war from happening when it is inevitable. When it's inevitable, keep in mind the problem always tried to not fight and as we will see in sort of 48 peace is always preferred, as I showed you in Surah. Eight as well, when Jana who decided me first Naha if they're inclined to peace, immediately inclined to peace and trust Allah. Okay, all of this is a fact. But these people are not seeking, you know, they're not seeking pieces

00:43:24 --> 00:43:36

don't want war so that they don't have to be inconvenienced, and they don't, you know, get exposed. That is unacceptable. And that is something that the Quran highlights in this as well.

00:43:38 --> 00:44:27

The Quran mentions I number 35 of the surah that falada Hindu, Badu ilosone. In the middle of war, as you are winning one to Milan, you when you've gained upper hand, don't concede that Abraham, Allahu Allah is with you. He will never let your works go to waste do not lose heart or appeal for peace when you gain the upper hand. A finger is the job when you have the upper hand and that is instruction as well to the army. Okay, this life is the life or the life of this world is only a game and a pastime in the Malhotra dunya Lai mala who is number 36. But if you believe and are mindful of God, He will recompense you and will not ask you for any of your wealth. This life is

00:44:27 --> 00:44:59

finite. And don't let the pleasures of this life and the luxuries of it make you forget about your ultimate purpose. ESP s l kumuha. For you fi comm if you were to ask it in the world of you, and continue to press you, you will become miserly, and this would show your ill will. The Quran finishes the surah by reminding us the last one that reminds us in the surah by saying how and to build. You are those who are called to spend

00:45:00 --> 00:45:47

For God's cause, but among you are those who are miserly and whoever stints does so against his own self Romania called for in the Maya, hollow on Nevsky, he's the one who is miserly is doing it, or is miserly to their own detriment. Allahu lawani because Allah is self sufficient. He doesn't need your money or underworld for hora. You are in need of him. You are need when you support a cause you support the cause but you really are supporting your own self your salvation wasn't at our last stop del Carmen via Rocco man if you turn back if you leave if you say I don't want to be part of this yes double Coleman Ryoko Masonic Allah is hurting. It's not like Allah is in need. He will bring in

00:45:47 --> 00:45:55

your place other people. And they won't be like you malata Khun Tanaka. Also malaria coonawarra come they won't be like you.

00:45:57 --> 00:46:44

The conclusion is sacrifice is required as part of faith individually and as a community. And the sacrifice here that this was talking about is sacrifice of actually putting your life on the line. And if you don't make that sacrifice, someone else will make it you will be replaced and someone else will come along will bring those people and they will make the sacrifice that's required to propagate and spread the message of this Deen. Okay, and to defend it from its adversaries. So this is that surah number 48 is the surah of peace surah alpha. Allah says enough at a time albina we have given you a clear victory. What is this clear victory? The clear victory is the Treaty of

00:46:44 --> 00:47:12

Arabia you notice how Allah calls peace of victory because peace is victory in the time of peace. Before the Prophet sign the Treaty of hydrophobia the number of Muslims that X number of people from Makkah that accepted Islam, were you know, there was a sizable number of them. But after the peace treaty until the conquest of Makkah, the number of people accepted this dam was even more than in those few short years than what had preceded before.

00:47:13 --> 00:47:56

That shows you when the people of MK felt that the Muslims are their enemies. They weren't interested in listening to what they had to say. But when the people on McCurry had that peace deal, and now they could consider their cool mind, what the message of Islam is, multitude of them accepted Islam to the point where the, the conclusion or the conquest of Makkah was a foregone conclusion, actually, before the Muslim actually even arrived there because most of Makkah had already accepted the Prophet either explicitly and fled and left to go to Medina or internally and they kept it on the download. They didn't want to tell people even Abu Sufyan the leader of Makkah

00:47:56 --> 00:48:40

had done so and that you know, tells you all that you need to know about Islams view on peace. It's preferred because that's when people can see the value the goodness in it. And I'll be too anytime there's war, you forget, you only see your enemy as an enemy and nothing more. Okay. This is a clear victory. realfeel Allah Kamata, cada momento Ambika, so God may forgive you years past and future sins, complete his favor up to you and guide you to a straight path. This is talking about the provinces addressing the Prophet specifically because that moment was a very tough moment for the Prophet. He even though he signed the peace treaty, the Sahaba were not impressed because many of

00:48:40 --> 00:49:20

them were not impressed because they had gone out to make the pilgrimage, the minor minor pilgrimage, the umbra. And they were barred from doing that by the people of Mecca, which was uncalled for the people of Makkah allowed everybody to come to the Kaaba and worship, they never stopped anybody. But here they stopped. The Muslims who are many of them are original napkins because they had this conflict and this, this beef that was very, very sorry, but the prophet SAW Some said, You know what, whatever they'd say today for the sake of peace, I will accept as long as not against Allah's commands, and accepted their terms. He accepted the term that we're not going to

00:49:20 --> 00:49:59

make 100 this year, and we will come back next year to make Ramadan. So this was not easy, the Sahaba were agitated, and this was hard for the Prophet because he didn't want the Sahaba to be agitated. You see. So this is in the beginning, speaking specifically the Prophet Salaam. As a consolation to him Allah is reminding him of his favours and consoling him and as you're telling him, Allah is going to bestow upon you His mighty help and his victory. He is the one who sent tranquility into the hearts of the believers to add faith to their faith. The forces of the heavens and the earth belong to him and he has the all knowing and the all wise he is going to add

00:50:00 --> 00:50:43

Amid the believing men and women into paradise through which rivers flow, and they will be there forever, and he will forgive their sins. That is the supreme triumph in the eyes of God. And he is also going to punish the monarchy again, the hypocritical men and women who have always tried to undermine the profits and undermine the peace process. While mushrikeen one must check out also the politics spending woman from Africa who tried to undermine the peace process alone in the middle, ah, he wanna Sue, then the so excuse me, those who think who have evil thoughts about God, they are the ones who God has become angry with them and rejected them and prepared for them * as an evil

00:50:43 --> 00:50:52

destination, okay, so Allah reminds the Prophet Salaam, this is you know, wild, tough for you to see your companions

00:50:55 --> 00:51:43

better and it was for the better so Pinilla there, the profits job and the profit is reminded Your job will profit is to be a warner, to spread the message. You are not a conquering King. That's not who he was. Okay? And he was a conveyor of the message you sent you for it as a witness and a bearer of good tidings and a warner. So you may believe in Allah and His Messenger, and you may help him and honor Him so that you may glorify God morning and evening. Okay, so the point here all profit is you focus on what you're doing control, leave the big plan that Allah has to him, focus on what you can control, convey the message, believe, do good deeds, sign this peace treaty, and Allah will

00:51:43 --> 00:52:23

bring good a format. That treaty of her day BIA was signed before it was signed, the Prophet asked for the Pledge of Allegiance because there was a rumor that the Prophet son in law was being was killed in Makkah, as he went to negotiate this standoff, and the Prophet took a pledge of allegiance from everybody and we will fight to the end to revenge or our own that they have killed wrongfully if that's true, and they all pledged all the Sahaba that went they all prejudiced regions. Allah said in the Medina you buy your own enamel you buy your own Allahu Allah, He FOCA, AB him, behold all those who pledged their allegiance to you in the Pledge of Allegiance to God. It's as if they

00:52:23 --> 00:52:30

have given their allegiance to God. They're the hand of God is over their hands. Okay, so this is

00:52:31 --> 00:52:53

the people the Sahaba This is their contracted the Sahaba contrasted with the hypocrites. Among them, the desert Arabs, the Arab the Bedouins, their pathetic attitude, saying things such as our belongings and families kept us occupied. So as forgiveness for us we weren't able to make it because you know, we're busy with work and family, you know how things are right?

00:52:55 --> 00:53:29

But the law says they they say with your tongue, your coluna BLC not him Melissa, if you follow Him, they say what their tongues that's not what's not in their hearts, they're lying. What the reason why they didn't come for Umrah. The reason why they didn't weren't there for to pledge allegiance to then the reason why they stayed behind is because they didn't want to go they didn't really believe in you or profit. That's the reason why they stayed behind. So unless pantalla mentioned that and mentioned it very, very clearly reminds them who has any power at all on on your behalf to intervene.

00:53:30 --> 00:54:04

Who has any power you know with God if he was to harm you, or intention intends to do you good who's going to stop him? Right? I can't stop him. Oh people if if he wants to take you to task he is going to take you to task in the local catalog will be Mata Luna hubiera God knows exactly what you're up to. I don't think you can that you can misguide him what reality was all in those who you hypocritical people who stayed behind you were thinking the Prophet and the believers will go for Umrah and will get killed and would never come back.

00:54:05 --> 00:54:46

Nyan collibra Rasul. Allah him Abba. Right. And you were like, this is good if they die in Makkah was doing in America if you only become this was nice, we will get our city back. Let's the things will go back to the way it was. Well, that anthems oneness, so quantum common bura, and you conceived evil thoughts, and thus you are doomed to perish? how evil were these people that were living with the profits of them, while trying to be pretending to be his followers pretending to be his supporters in their hearts, they wanted the prophet to die, and the believers to die so they can become powerful, and they can you know, things go back to being the way they were. This is the kind

00:54:46 --> 00:54:59

of people the Prophet son had to deal with. Brothers and sisters. Do you understand? How difficult can meet like imagine how difficult it must be to deal with people like that on a day to day basis. And they're not just riffraff is an issue.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:44

influential people in society that is the kind of people the Prophet silom had to work with. So this was a by no means easy. This is the pressure he had from his within his people in Medina and then McCann's are a different story all together, the Treaty of how they via the Quran says is louder all the Allahu Nina is you by your Nakata shadow, Allah subhanaw. taala is pleased with those who, who gave the Pledge of Allegiance under the tree, right? That's where the problem set under under a tree. And he took Pledge of Allegiance with them. And he was very happy that they gave that pledge of allegiance because that showed the truthfulness of their Eman. And what does that mean when you

00:55:44 --> 00:56:28

show the truthfulness of your faith? What does it get you for alima Murphy called obey Him He knew was in their hearts. So he sent tranquility to them and rewarded them with a near victory. A victory near at hand this is the thing when you do something good for the sake of Allah. There is a tranquility and peace that he sends down with that sincerity comes tranquility. Okay? And Allah says you will also have many future gains, you will you will win today you think you you know strictly in terms of battle, you thought today that you got the short end of the stick, you will get many more victories, Allah is promising you those future games, okay. But today what he's done is we're cafe

00:56:28 --> 00:56:51

dnrc uncom. Today he is restrained the hands of men from harming you today he is de escalated the situation. So that that might be a sign for the believers and said that you may be on the show that he may guide you to a straight path. There is the de escalation that took place in the treaty that prevented bloodshed. This preventing bloodshed is always good, okay.

00:56:52 --> 00:56:53

But also

00:56:56 --> 00:57:04

right, there is the also the I the Quran mentions this Allah mentions it's worth 25 I remember 25

00:57:05 --> 00:57:50

Well, let me know, won his her own movement, Atlanta, Alamo home, had it not been for the believing men and believing women in Makkah, whom you might have unwittingly, trampled underfoot and on whose account you might have unknowingly become guilty in the sight of God, God would have commanded you to fight it out with them, but he or ordained peace, and he let the peace treaty be so that he may bring whoever he wills into his mercy, a very important idea sometimes, like in particularly in the case of the treaty for Libya, Allah subhanaw taala prevented war because they were many secret believers in makup. Had there been more they would have been killed. Okay, number one. Number two,

00:57:50 --> 00:58:39

the bigger wisdom is when there is when Allah de escalates or de escalation in general is a good thing. Because the heat of the moment the battle is going to trample people who otherwise would be good people. And that is what this iron is showing and that's what this this priests peace treaty of Arabia is showing that allows patata once peace so more people can be brought into the fold of Islam and he calls him neutrino in the UK the love of your rahmati Masha, that is the mercy of God he's bringing them under his mercy. Okay, so panela so that's a very beautiful thing. Again, it goes to show you how peace is preferred peace is good, as the Quran mentions that.

00:58:42 --> 00:59:32

The Treaty of Arabia that is last month the Prophet when he began the journey to Makkah, he had seen a dream that he and the Sahaba are making the walk around the Kaaba making hombre, okay, and Allah says nakatsuka, Lola Sula, who wrote here will help God has shown in all God has an all truth shown his messenger A True Vision, in which he said that hollandale muscle Hara insha Allah who amin you will enter, you will enter the Sacred Mosque by the permission of God in safety and without fear shaven headed or with hair cut short This is what happens when you make armor or you shave your head or you cut your short game. Allah says that dream will come true not today it will come true in the

00:59:32 --> 00:59:33

future right.

00:59:35 --> 00:59:59

It will come to come true in the future. And sometimes, you know, oftentimes actually good things come to those who wait for them. Okay. God knew what you did not know. And he has given you before jalandoni Delica Tang kariba He is giving you a nearby victory. So Pinilla Allah is again teaching us the importance. This is diplomacy

01:00:00 --> 01:00:06

This is the idea of diplomacy This is the idea of de escalation. This is what it means to

01:00:08 --> 01:00:45

see the bigger picture that is what the surah is teaching. And that is what Allah calls the great victory, not a victory in a battle by itself. He is the one who sent His messenger with guidance and the true religion so that he may have it prevail over all other religions. And suffice is he as a witness? Muhammad Rasul Allah Muhammad Aslam is the messenger of God. Right. He sort of 47 mentioned the person name and Surah 48 mention his name as well. The provinces name is not mentioned that much in the Quran. If I'm not mistaken, it's mentioned around four times, if I'm not mistaken, while I was in law school,

01:00:46 --> 01:01:05

I only only four times number one in Surah number three, number two in Surah, 33 and third and fourth, these instances 47 and 48. Every time his name is mentioned, he's mentioned as the Messenger of Allah well, Mom, her mother in law school, Mama mecanim, Hamadan Makana Muhammad

01:01:07 --> 01:01:39

Rasul Allah, Muhammad is nothing but a messenger. Muhammad is not the father of your children or not the father of any man, he is the messenger of God, that's also 33 remember the adoption verse here and the previous surah Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah so solemn, that's how he's mentioned. But the in these two instances mentioned together because you see sort of 47 began by the prophet systems suspension, sort of 48 concludes with the prophecies mentioned. Okay, that's kind of how they're, you know, in

01:01:40 --> 01:02:26

there like a mirror image in that way. Remember, I said these two are like a couplet. Okay. What does the surah conclude this last beautiful I conclude with it says Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, those who are with him our firm and unyielding towards those who deny the truth, but they are compassionate Ruhama obey know whom they are compassionate with each other. Dada whom Luca and so Jeddah Yep, the una problema de la he was Juana wanna, you see them? We see them doing what we see them bowing and prostrating themselves seeking the grace of God and His goodwill. They're focused on worshiping of law. Right? Sima whom fee will Jui him in Athens to Jude, their marks are on their

01:02:26 --> 01:02:28

faces that traces of their prostrations.

01:02:30 --> 01:02:33

Delica method, Torah, they are described in the Torah

01:02:35 --> 01:03:06

and in the Gospel. Well, Matthew homefield, indeed, it is maybe an okay transition. That's how they're describing the Torah that they are the ones who are prostrating and batten bowing, seeking God's grace and goodwill and have marks or prostration on their face. And in the Gospel in the Injeel. They're described as being a seed, with sense forth, it's shoot, that makes it strong, and then it becomes thick, and it stands firm on its own stem, delighting the sores.

01:03:08 --> 01:03:59

Your RG was a rock. This is like their week in the beginning, it's like a seed, it becomes a little stronger, but still seedling is still weak, then it becomes thick, and strong. And then it stands on its own. And the one who saw that seed is happy looking at it. This is the image of Oh, this is a this is imagery of the Sahaba. And the profits of them. The President is the one who planted the seed. And this little seedling survived all types of onslaughts from its enemies. But then it was became every passing moment became stronger and stronger until it became firm, thick, stands firm on its own stem, delighting the prophets of Allah. When he passed away, or just a few days before he

01:03:59 --> 01:04:43

passed away. He was ill in his house, so he wouldn't be able to come out and lead the Sahaba in prayer. But one of these days he was feeling better just before he passed away, he opened the window of his house and his house would overlook the message. And he saw the Sahaba praying all in rows, and he smiled. Right and that was very beautiful moment because that's like the fulfillment of the prophecy and his mission. He sees it he knows us and is near and now he sees that his job is done. And that's a beautiful feeling. Your energy was so raw. See, the lighting the process the problem? This is a prophecy for the Prophet man it was revealed that you're going to be smiling that one day

01:04:43 --> 01:04:49

when you see this tree become firm. And for us it's a reflection, right something to reflect upon.

01:04:50 --> 01:04:59

Why the law Latina amanu why middle solly hottie Mel ferrata min min homophilic da agilan. avi, my goddess promised forgiveness and a great reward to those

01:05:00 --> 01:05:03

Have them who believe and do good works next Surah Surah

01:05:05 --> 01:05:07

Surah gerat gets its name from this item

01:05:11 --> 01:05:54

number four in the Medina you now do not come in the afternoon late afternoon outside your apartment hood you rot is a plural of progeria which is an apartment not apartment anything of apartments you think of like you know high rise or mid rise apartments here are like small little like units all side by side to each other that's what that's the houses the price of them had and his and his wives Okay, this surah five times has yet a human Latina Amma because it teaches Islamic etiquettes Okay Oh, you will believe it comes five times number one here. Don't push yourselves forward in the presence of God and His Messenger fear God because God hears all and knows all number two or you

01:05:54 --> 01:06:07

will believe Do not raise your voices above the voice of the messenger don't speak loudly when you speaking to him as you do when you're speaking to one another, less your actions come to nothing without you realizing it.

01:06:09 --> 01:06:46

This is something that there's there's there's a this was a confrontation that was taking place in front of the province on them between a worker and Omar they were arguing about something and they started to you know, like really raise their voices. And this became inappropriate and it was uncalled for the Prophet asked for their opinion they started fighting, you know, enough fighting to start arguing. And and that was unacceptable. Even these two the greatest of all time, had these flaws had these little mistakes and errors and judgment. And the Quran corrected them. But look at how beautifully the Quran corrected them. Then say hey, I worker don't speak before the Prophet. Hey

01:06:46 --> 01:07:10

Omar, Don't raise your voice above the voice of the Prophet. It doesn't say by name, it says oh, you will believe or you will believe concealing the flaw of the one who made the mistake. That's the correns way of addressing people's mistakes, concealing their flaws and addressing them not individually but the whole group so that they don't feel like they're being

01:07:11 --> 01:07:11

that they're being

01:07:13 --> 01:07:17

spotlighted or they're being picked on you see.

01:07:19 --> 01:07:31

That is such a beautiful way of bringing about true intrinsic change. And that is how the Quran speaks. The third instance of this is your loving

01:07:34 --> 01:07:54

co convener by number six. all believers have an evildoer brings you news as ascertain the correctness of the report fully? Okay, this is a okay translation and evil dual brings you news ascertain the correctness of the news of the report fully, this is good. This is a good translation.

01:07:56 --> 01:08:38

And this applies because this is something that we should do. If you hear about news that's coming from an evil source, people who are having agenda, verify and ascertain is truthful and honest, believe it a lot and to see more common with Johanna less you unwittingly harm others. And then you regret what you have done, but also facet. And this is a deeper understanding of the surah. Or the deeper understanding of the of this ayah facet is somebody who's prejudiced, not just an evildoer, that's used mostly for evildoers. But it also means someone who was biased. And that is actually the context of revelation because somebody brought information they were biased against a tribe, the

01:08:38 --> 01:09:20

prophet didn't know that sent them to find out some information about that tribe came back with false information or misleading information because of their bias. And as a result of that, the prophet son was going to take action, military action. And then there's I was revealed to stop that from happening. That doesn't mean that that person was like an evil door, but they were biased. And because of that they were misleading in all the people that they were informing. So the other transition here is, if somebody is prejudiced and bias and bring you information, then you have to verify before you act on it. And if you don't verify and you act on it, then you will unwittingly

01:09:20 --> 01:09:59

harm others without realizing and then you will regret what you have done. So panela how applicable is this is in the age of social media and WhatsApp forwards and all kinds of nonsense that we live through here. don't hear everything you will they don't believe most of the things you hear on like unverified sources, okay? Don't because they're unverified for a reason. Even prejudice sources sources that are going to their their news has an agenda, verify, ascertain, get a full picture before you believe that okay, surah three also speaks about resolve conflicts.

01:10:00 --> 01:10:08

Particularly between believers and the worst type of conflict is to, you know, Muslim armies fighting each other. Right?

01:10:10 --> 01:10:14

It talks about resolve that conflict, how do you go about resolving that?

01:10:15 --> 01:10:32

And understand that you are believers in the mullaghmore Mineola, FYI number 10. The believers are brothers, brothers and sisters, that's how we are supposed to be not those who are fighting and killing each other for us the whole way and away Come make peace between your brothers, even if they're fighting this still both brothers.

01:10:34 --> 01:10:37

This is important. The Quran makes us understand that.

01:10:38 --> 01:11:21

The fourth instance of your union Avenue is all believers Don't mock others. These are etiquettes of how you live as part of a wider society, right? These are not all linked to one another. They're all having a similar type of occurrences that were happening and the Quran was revealed as a result to address them. But these are all problems of living as a society as a community, people being biased people things foolish things, people believing foolish things, people acting or speaking out of turn, people looking down and others people having conflict and resolving that conflict. All of that is when you live together part and parcel of that, oh, you will believe Let not some men among you

01:11:21 --> 01:11:55

ridicule others. And it may be that the others the people that you really clueing are better than you and that not some women ridicule and laugh other women because it may be that the others the one they're mocking are better than that. Right? Don't do this Don't be little people. And it breaks it down by gender to drive home the point this is not something like nobody should be doing this. A really really emphasizing this part while telling me Sue and pusaka do not defame each other. Well, that's an avenue below called not

01:11:56 --> 01:12:30

sarcasm. Sarcasm is you know has a place because we understand it. But this is a law. Tell me who unphysical is. Don't defame others, okay? Or call each other by offensive nicknames. The expression is so beautiful. Don't defame yourselves, because when you defame your fellow brother or sister, you've actually defamed yourself. game. B so this will feel so bad. Imagine how bad it is to earn an evil reputation after accepting the faith and those who aren't who do not repent are evil doers.

01:12:32 --> 01:13:15

The last year are you living in harmony? Is it Oh, you will believe avoid much suspicion? Indeed some suspicion is sin. Don't you know don't have negative assumptions about people don't think that they're always thinking bad of you. Or they want to undermine you. instantly. McCarthy I'm gonna leave that again. It's Stephanie who says avoid avoid is not good translation is stunning. Who is completely abandon that? Stop thinking bad people stop thinking that people have something against you. And they're out to get you don't think that way? Hey, don't spy because that kind of thoughts leads to spying. Well, that just says to don't spy on other Mullah Yatta Baba Baba. And that leads

01:13:15 --> 01:13:56

to also talking behind people's back about what they're doing. All of these are vices. All of these are unacceptable. islamically as characteristics, how would you like it? If you were to eat the flesh? Your Dead brother's flesh? Would you like to do that? Right, you would be repelled by it. That's the image that you do when you are character. assassinating somebody is as if you have killed them. And now you're consuming their meat. But the law of fear God who God is most forgiving and most merciful is number 13 is a very beautiful, very famous idea that speaks about a human NASS or people. Yeah, we have created you from a male and female made you into tribe peoples and tribes so

01:13:56 --> 01:14:12

that you may get to know each other, right? Where there's diversity, and that diversity is not this that we feel that we're better than the one race is better than the other race or one ethnicity is superior to the other. No, that diversity is their lead that you can get to know each other.

01:14:13 --> 01:14:49

In the academic Amanda law here at Qualcomm, the best of you is not the one who has one skintone or one this you know ethnicity or what some, some lineage No, the best of you is the one who is a Chroma coma and the law here at Qualcomm, the one who has the most fear of Allah, the most pious and that fear of Allah is in the heart. That's not something that's judged by the color of the skin. That's not judged by people that's judged by Allah. So the best person is known to Allah, Allah and Allah only because he is our demon Kabir, all knowing and all aware, the surah concludes with a very beautiful

01:14:51 --> 01:14:59

passage in the La Jolla Alamo, but somehow it will also allow us to MyMathLab and God knows the unseen things of the heavens and the earth. He sees all that you do.

01:15:00 --> 01:15:46

So this is a very beautiful Surah Surah Jihad talks about Islamic etiquettes and how we should be focusing on them and improving ourselves as part of what it comes as, as a as a believing community, part and parcel of that we need this reminder to improve. But you notice when the Quran reminds it reminds in a beautiful way conceding the flaws of those who made the mistakes, reminding that if we hurt others, we are hurting ourselves in the process as well. A beautiful way to make positive change is application for sticking around till the very end here is the link for the form for post Ramadan classes. The delayed form belatedly here please fill it out and inshallah Tada. Hopefully

01:15:46 --> 01:15:50

from that we can build and continue the study of Quran together
