In like absolute way we're going to continue something after Milan in sha Allah, I'm sharing with you that survey that I had shared for a couple of days and I'll continue sharing until the end. And please do highlight your preference or what we should study in your time from when we should study that inshallah tada and we will do it in

00:01:31 --> 00:01:34

the same way where we are virtually on zoom.

00:01:38 --> 00:02:30

And even when we do have something on in person, you know, whenever Allah allows us to be back in the masjid, we will still have an online option available inshallah for you all. So this is that in charge a lot more fun for you all, for your participation and your feedback in Charlotte. I really appreciate it. With that said, let's get started today with the 28 Jews, the 28 Jews is actually one of the most unique Jews of the Quran. Why do I say it's one of the most unique use of the clock because it is comprised entirely of Medina and sutras. Okay, it has surah number 58 surah Jazeera Surah 59. So the hash of Surah 67 7061 soft 62 Juma 63 Manasa, * 6465 or 66 at 39 surahs that are

00:02:30 --> 00:03:16

all Medina error revelation, meaning the prof some had left maka, Amanda Medina, nine of them and all of them are in this one just, in fact, if you go back a surah and you add the 57th surah, to this the 57 Surah Surah Hadith, which was in the previous just, we didn't really get time yesterday to cover that, that makes it 10 straight sutras that are are all Medina era surah This is the only time in the Quran this happens, you know, you have in the beginning of the Parana have a lot of Medina and turas that is what abakada Ali Imran is a mighty that, you know 2345 those students of course, they are make up the bulk of the beginning of the Quran, of course, but they are as you can

00:03:16 --> 00:04:01

see, there's four of them right? Here you have 10 of them in a row, of course, they're shorter, and that's why they're all you know, condensed into one just those are four but longer they span over seven years. But this is a unique part of the Quran because you have so many Medina and sewers in a row. And with Medina sewers, there are some common themes. Number one, there is going to be a lot of times when Allah says yeah, you have Medina and Manu O you who believe, because the primary audience is the believers of Medina, those who have accepted the prophets of Salaam as the Prophet, those who are the Sahaba, who are trying to live faithfully, okay. And there's a lot of lessons to learn from

00:04:01 --> 00:04:42

that. Number two, is there's a lot of character flaws that are discussed mistakes that people make the Sahaba particularly the make, Allah discusses those and addresses those mistake. So I'm going to focus on that aspect a bit today as well how this just highlights the mistakes the Sahaba made, and then Allah corrects them. There's a lot to learn from that. There's a lot to learn the aspect of, you know, human beings are bound to make mistakes, even the best of the human beings. Okay? So that's acceptable. That's not a problem. The problem is to say, you know what I am,

00:04:43 --> 00:04:59

you know, I don't want to admit my mistake, I'm going to actually double down that's the problem. the right attitude is accepting the mistake. And then rectifying it and also how you speak about someone's mistake is just as critical as you know, as rectify

00:05:00 --> 00:05:39

trying it because if you speak about it in the manner that puts them on the defensive that perhaps they won't be able to improve. So that's the second thing. The third thing is there is I'm going to keep highlight because this is a long journey and it has all these suitors I'm going to highlight roughly three aspects how faith is mentioned, how family is mentioned, and how communities mentioned. Okay, faith, family and community when I mentioned these and just highlight the I add that you know, consistently speak about these three topics in this juice. Okay, I actually wanted to share with you one very beautiful part of the Quran from the previous juice. I want to start with

00:05:39 --> 00:06:21

that and then we'll proceed. I want you to notice this Surah Surah starvista 57 first, this is in the 27 jos at the very end but I want to I'm doing this for a purpose. Look at this is sub bahala hemophilus Amati. While the wahoo will Aziz al Hakim, everything in the heavens and the earth glorifies God He is a mighty and wise Okay, this is Surah 57. Now I want you to look at surah number 59. So 59 says Subhan Allah Hema for some Amati Mama, hula Aziz will Hakeem everything in the heavens and on earth glorifies God. He is the Almighty and the wise Okay. Then I want you to look at

00:06:22 --> 00:06:24

surah number

00:06:25 --> 00:06:43

16 Subhan Allah He sorry 61 excuse me Subhana Allah Hema festa Marathi marfil agua hula Aziz will Hakeem everything in the heavens and the earth glorifies God, He is the Almighty and wise Okay, this was 61 Yes. Then let's look at surah number.

00:06:45 --> 00:06:52

Where is it 6162 6062 moves up behind in lahemaa office Mr. De Waal out

00:06:54 --> 00:07:14

it was a very lame office Amati woman fill out the medical code do Salah Aziz al Hakim, whatever is in the heavens and earth on an on the earth glorifies God, the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One, the mighty, the Wise. And finally, the last instance of this is Surah number 64.

00:07:15 --> 00:07:27

u sub B holy Allah He manifests Amati marfil level malko Allah, Hamed, wahoo, Allah coalition padeen all that is in the heavens, and all that is on the earth

00:07:29 --> 00:08:12

extols the glory of God, To Him belongs the kingdom. And to him all praises do he has power over all things. These are five sewers 50 750 961 or SFX, 62, jamara 64, a dovan. They all begin with sub baja or u sub B, glorifying the praise of Allah and they are called the sewers are called the Musab behat, the sewers that begin in by praising Allah and you know, mentioning his glory, okay? And this is something you will notice in this part of the Quran. These five occur here in this just okay, they don't occur in other parts of the Quran.

00:08:13 --> 00:08:35

In other parts of the Quran, okay. Now, I also want to show you before we begin, because I want to just give you an overview of the whole Jews, and then we'll get into the specific IRA. Okay, as I told you, there's going to be lots of Yeah, you have levina armano. Correct. In fact, there are 15 instances of Yeah, you have Lavina amanu. In this Jews, right. You start with look, surah number moja de la.

00:08:37 --> 00:08:50

Yeah, you are living in Amazon. Okay, here. Yeah, you're looking at Amazon here. Yeah, you are living the avenue all the way it started at 76. Look, I'm gonna go down to page number nine here, all the way up to EDI

00:08:51 --> 00:08:58

all the way up to 9015 instances of a lot mentioning yet a u haul levina amanu

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

Aminu. Okay, this is something that is very unique to this Jews, you don't find this much repetition of Yeah, you are living among other Jews. As I mentioned, the reason for that is because someone made a mistake and a lot is correcting their mistake. And it is a Is there a there's a lesson for us in their mistakes. So that's a big overview of the judges. I want to mention

00:09:25 --> 00:09:30

a little bit of the beginning of sort of Hadith and other the end of the sort of thing and then we'll transition into our next use.

00:09:31 --> 00:09:59

It begins with that Subhanallah One of them was up he had Lou muku sumati Well, he has sovereign control over the heavens and the earth. He gives life he brings death he has power over all things who will oh well who will withdraw who will wealthy No, he's the first and the last meaning is always been there. And when everyone dies, he will still be there. While our VA hero will belt in the outward the inward The one who is you know dominant, right? He is not nothing is above him. Get over

00:10:00 --> 00:10:36

gave an Boulton he knows inner secrets. Nobody knows them like he does will be coalition alim. And that's why the surah ends or the IR ends with his knowledge, he has knowledge of all things who will lead the Holocaust somehow it will all Duffy said that the young it is he was created the heavens and the earth in six days, these are six periods of time, and then ascended the throne the master model, Ashton is not part of his creation. He's not above his creation above his throne, his creation is below him. But just because he's above his creation doesn't mean he doesn't have anything to do with him. In fact, he knows intuitively his creation Yeah, lemuel Maya, you fill out

00:10:36 --> 00:11:25

the form if he knows what enters the earth, the little seeds, the little animals? Why am I accrued human what comes out to the plants? Why am I in zoom in a summer, what descends from the sky, or my arms up here and what a sense to it. He knows that what the sense in the sky is rain, what the sense of the sky is, sunlight, what descends from the sky is our sustenance, right? That's forms the basis of our sustenance, gave, what a sense to it is people's actions, the spirit, the the, the book of deeds are raised up, they ascend to the sky. So Allah knows he, this would descend to the sky, he knows it, he allows us to live and survive and thrive. And then what ascends is the actions he will

00:11:25 --> 00:11:50

hold us accountable. He is with you, wherever you are, he sees all that you do one more Malcolm Anima quantum, this may be misunderstood, understood by somebody you think that Allah is everywhere. Okay. But that will be a misunderstanding This is going to be this is a you know, a Christian understanding. Unfortunately, this is how the Christians view certain aspects, certain types of Christians, I can't speak for everybody.

00:11:51 --> 00:11:55

And then this is also some of the MIS represented

00:11:56 --> 00:12:16

positions in Islam. They might think this way, like, hey, God's everywhere, right? But in fact, he's not here is the reason number one, he says he ascended the throne. So mastaba Allah, she clearly specifies that Allah has separated himself from the creation, we do not mix the creation with the Creator.

00:12:19 --> 00:12:26

As the Lord, I'll actually send you that inshallah. JazakAllah for the 15 times, I'll send that link to UK in Sharla. Okay.

00:12:28 --> 00:13:07

Just Just please remind me, I'll actually keep this question. So I don't forget. Okay. Sorry. So number one, he mentioned this, he has ascended the throne, he is not part of his creation. So clearly, he is above his creation, we don't mix the Creator with the creation, the creation is weak, the creation is finite, the creation lives and dies, the creature none of that applies to him. Okay. So that is number one. Number two, when he says he's with you, wherever you are, right, there is another understanding of this, which is that he knows exactly what you are doing intricately. He knows you. And that's like him being with you. And that's why the ions will will love him at Dharma

00:13:07 --> 00:13:15

University. No, he sees what you do. Right? That is the understanding. When he says he's with you. That means he is with you.

00:13:16 --> 00:13:57

In the way he sees you, in the way he monitors your actions in the way he supports you, but not physically. Last month does not right here next to me on this chair, right? This is bizarre, okay? He's not like that. Okay, he's above his throne. He's above his creation. He does not mix with his creation. Okay. He does. He will be there on the Day of Judgment. Of course, we don't deny that he will be there. And he does descend to the lowest part of the sky at the last part of the night to listen to people's do I but that's in a manner that befits His Majesty and not in the way he doesn't mix with his creation. Okay. That is an important aspect. I want you to understand that please.

00:13:57 --> 00:14:45

Okay. I also want to highlight a very interesting eye number 20 from Surah Hadid never forget it Allah animal hired to dunya ly boom Allah who was in a tomato farm binaca never forget that the life of this world is only a game and a passing an a passing delight, a show and mutual boasting and trying to out rival each other enriches and children. It's very interesting, very beautiful summary of life. Live. It's a play, right? It's live is playing and you know what not, that's what kids do. That's all they want to do is want to play. Okay. Last one is it'll passing it's something that's entertaining, but not just necessarily games. It's gonna be entertaining with talk. It can be

00:14:45 --> 00:14:59

entertaining with media. So that's the next stage of a child's life now and they become from just playing with like anything that they find the play with the ball here, they play with the mic here, the play with the garbage there. It goes from that to now entertaining themselves. You know?

00:15:00 --> 00:15:41

Maybe with media, maybe maybe with games and devices, maybe with other types of things, they will entertain themselves. Okay, what Xena, the next stage of life is it becomes all about beauty. That's what the teenagers are. Everybody wants to make sure they don't have acne on their face. You know, they don't look, you know, unacceptable. It's all about Air Jordans and all that jazz. So this is Xena. That's the next stage of life. Whatever, hold on. binaca next stage of life is boasting about what you are like what you're accomplishing, or I got into this university, I'm doing this I'm going to be doing that Okay, then. It's about the Catherine feel unwell, the next stage of life is trying

00:15:41 --> 00:16:25

to out privately each other enriches. That's what the person spends their adulthood doing, gaining wealth, becoming richer so that they have more than they can tell people. This is my net worth. Right? Well, I will add and children trying to, you know, have a beautiful house when people come they're like, Wow, what a beautiful place we live in right. This is what people this is the journey of life. Nothing intricately nothing wrong with that, I mean, NF itself is not a problem. But if you are consumed by this, that is where the problem lies. That cannot be your purpose. Your purpose has to be savvy who Elon Musk, filati mirabito. It should be vying with each other for the for your

00:16:25 --> 00:17:01

Lord's forgiveness and for paradise, as vast as heaven and earth, which has been made ready for those who believe in God and His messengers, such as God's grace, He bestows upon whoever he pleases, there is no limit to God's bounty, meaning we try we take whatever we can from this world we enjoy whatever we enjoy, but the purpose of our lives is working for and building our house in the next life. And we should never lose sight of that this surah is a very beautiful reminder of that, also, in the surah is a very interesting passage that I want to share with you. In sha Allah. Again, I have number 25 look at our Santa Rosa novel, but you know, we sent our messengers with

00:17:01 --> 00:17:47

evidence, and with them, we send down the book and the scales of justice so that men might act in all fairness, the akumina Suba Lucas, right, the Allah sent the Scripture, Al Kitab. And Elisa and the skills of justice, this is either This is how as society we develop concepts of justice that are, you know, universal, everybody understands, you know, it's unfair for people to, you know, lose their homes, it's unfair for people to get killed, right, it's unfair, these are just universal values, yes, but that those universal values are mitigated or corrected by the Scripture. So less, they don't become subjective and they don't become a, you know, oppressive game. This is Allah how

00:17:47 --> 00:18:30

Allah has, has done things. So people can live in fairness. Otherwise, it could be it would be chaos. And then Allah says, We sent down Iran with its great inherent strength, and its many benefits for mankind. This is, you know, enforcing of the law, right? The law is mentioned. And then the enforcing of the law also mentioned, this is what he enables human beings to do. And then Hades is interesting, we've send on iron because there's evidence that iron did not originate on the earth. Okay, unlike other metals and whatnot, that like, for example, like oil or other materials, other minerals that form in the earth, as you know, as corpses decay and whatnot, iron did not form

00:18:30 --> 00:18:58

on the earth, and that's actually a prevalent opinion on the matter. And it seems like iron was, it was an asteroid that struck the earth that brought with it, iron and then or maybe multiple asteroids, okay? Before there was you know, people around the earth so so how long we again this this, these are theories of how, you know, we find materials and minerals, we don't know for a fact what it is, but, you know, the eye actually lends some, some some

00:18:59 --> 00:19:44

like, alludes to that at least right that's very interesting to notice that so that God might know who would stand up for God, though unseen and his messengers God is all powerful and all mighty, okay, mentions that he has sent a Noah and Ibrahim Okay, and that many of some of them were rightly guided the people who followed him, but many among them were transgressors. Then he mentions a very interesting passage and this is the one I want to highlight to you, I number 27, the mccobb find it can be Rosalina. Then in their wake, we follow them up with others of our messengers, and after them, Jesus, the son of Mary and he Salaam. We gave him the gospel what Tina, who indeed Injeel is

00:19:44 --> 00:19:59

not exactly the Gospel of Mark, Matthew, Luke and john, okay, that's the Gospel according to Mark, or Matthew or Luke or john, that's according to them. That's not the original gospel that was given to a solid slab. There is the gospel

00:20:00 --> 00:20:42

remnants of it remain unfortunately okay. But irrespective what we know for a fact is Allah gave him the Injeel the gospel the thing that brought good news the thing that had wisdom and what was the effect of the gospel of the on the people what Jr's nephew, Luba Latina, terbaru, hora, fatawa, Rama and we imbued the hearts of those who followed him, but compassion and mercy. And this is the system the way it was from the earliest times of Christianity, okay, that people who followed a system truly even when they had mistakes, they had a remarkable compassionate compassion and mercy about themselves. Okay.

00:20:44 --> 00:20:45

And Ravani Yeah.

00:20:47 --> 00:21:29

We did not prescribe monasticism, for them. This is unique to the Christians. But Allah says we do not prescribe it for them. That was their own innovation, by which they sought to please God as interesting, they had, you know, good intentions, but the action was kind of off. But the intentions were good, they wanted to please God through being, you know, monks and whatnot like by secluding themselves from the life of the world. famara had a heck of a idea, but then they did not observe it the way they should have been observed. They didn't keep up to keep up the values. That is a lesson I'm taught that that Jesus taught them guys, well, this has been rewarded. Only those who are truly

00:21:29 --> 00:22:12

faithful, for many of them were disobedient, okay. thielmann, home Foster, this is a very interesting I again, I want you to keep this in mind. The Quran, praises the people who does who did things, right. And positive characteristics, even when we don't agree fully with the theology, right of those who, you know, ascribe divinity to Isa will absolutely reject that we absolutely cannot, will not stand for that. But that doesn't mean that they don't have goodness in them. And this is something you might remember from Surah. Number five, right? The when the Quran describe the Christians that they are, you know, gentle, and they're not arrogant. And this is the same thing

00:22:12 --> 00:22:56

here. This is interesting, because, you know, there's a group of Christians that are extremely, like the, they're the evangelical types, the very rough, they're very difficult. And like I said, on interfaith panels, and when I find a, you know, like a good Christian pastor who's not of that, I actually find him to be very easygoing. Right. And that's what the Quran mentions this from the beginning of the time of the process, that this is the characteristics of these people. The interesting thing to notice is the Quran praises positive characteristics of people, even when there are issues with their theology, and isn't afraid Allah is not afraid to highlight the problems that

00:22:56 --> 00:23:24

are there as well. And also the statistics, those who were believers, Allah gave them their good reward, but many, many of them were disobedient. Okay, so this is very, very important. So that is a surah Hadith. I just wanted to share that with you, because that's a very unique passage, you will not find this kind of this passage and other parts of the Quran and I tried to make a point to highlight this to everybody okay. Um, okay.

00:23:26 --> 00:24:11

That is one now we have surah number surah number 58 al moja de la semi Allah, Allah Allah de todo De Luca fees Oh gee ha, tequila La La Jolla smart maroto how Akuma God has indeed heard the words of the woman who pleads with you about her husband and Lazar complaint before God God here's what the two of you have to say. He's all hearing and all seeing Who is this woman? This woman was her name was Hola, with salah and her husband, his name was aos, amen. summit. Okay. These two were married, they had issues and the husband was being petty. So instead of divorcing his wife, he said, You know what, I'm not gonna divorce you. But I'm not going to be intimate with you. You're like, my, you're

00:24:11 --> 00:24:54

like my mom to me. You To me, You're like my mother's back. I mean, like, just like, I will never think about being intimate with my mother. I will not ever think about being intimate with you. This is torturous. This is a very, very disgusting thing to do in a family relationship. So what this woman came to the prophet and she wanted the Prophet Salaam to find her solution the problem didn't I couldn't see anything until I a number three was revealed. Okay? Those who want to do this, those who have said this and now either you divorce and you go your separate way, and she goes a separate way, Okay, number one, or if you want to stay together, then there's a severe penalty for the the

00:24:54 --> 00:24:59

terrible thing you said what is the severe penalty, you know, when equated them in this manner.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:16

You know, intimacy wise you into, equated them with your mother. That means you must set if free a slave before the couple must touch one another meaning before they get intimate again before they move on with their lives, the man has to free a slave Hmm.

00:25:18 --> 00:26:00

And if you're not able to then two months of consecutive fasting, this is specific to By the way, not saying that, oh, you resemble my mother in like manners or whatever, right? This is saying you are just I think of you, you know, in terms of intimacy, like I would think of my mother, right completely out of bounds. You can do that to your wife, she is the one who you are to be intimate with. That is why this is such a terrible thing. And that's why the punishment is so severe. You said such a terrible thing. You're doing these things that are bad, you better make up for it by freeing a slave. Right? The idea is, it's like you took this this lady's life and you put it in

00:26:00 --> 00:26:29

jeopardy, you give someone else a new lease on life because of that. So hon Allah This is a very interesting thing. So this is, as you can see, as I told you, three parts here, Faith Family community, right, this is the family part. The surah mentions issues that happen in family and how Allah subhanaw taala resolves that and gives instruction and he says don't do this. They come to me he that is what Allah instructs. You don't do that. Okay. There is the idea of

00:26:31 --> 00:27:14

it when it comes to community. Let's go to community. The community Oops, sorry, the community. I number nine, it says yeah, you live in Amman, in Atlanta, jatim ferrata, Nigel if me well or dhwani mamacita Rasul. all believers, when you confer together and private, do not confer in support of sin and transgression and disobedience to the messenger, but confer for the promotional promotion of virtue and righteousness. This is specific to how the hypocrites would act right I number eight speaks about the hypocrites who were forbidden to have secret meetings to undermine the believers but they will still do it. Okay and then they will come to the Messenger of Allah they would say

00:27:14 --> 00:27:52

things that were inappropriate and then they would wonder Lola you eyes even Allah we run a pool Why has not got punished us for what we say? Right? Why Why isn't there no punishment coming on upon us? Okay, we do this wrong, things are not held accountable. What's up like, is this really easy, really truthful person? See, we can get away with whatever we want, right? No, has boom, Johanna, you're slowing her * will be a fitting punishment for them, they will burn in its flames in wretched fate, you are not going to be zapped in the world. Because you said something inappropriate about the problem, but you will be held accountable in the next life. Okay? And that's what they're

00:27:52 --> 00:28:36

reminded of, then a lot. Here's the believers and says you believers Don't be part of these kinds of discussions. And when you want to do like a meeting, you're having a private gathering, you don't want it to be public. Do this on the basis of virtue and righteousness. Okay, do not let private gatherings be a place where suspicions and sins are, you know, the, the agenda the agenda should be righteousness and piety. And this is important for for a community. The Quran mentions and accommodation is number 11. Oh believers, again, it starts with Yeah, are you a Latina, I'm an all believers in after either La Quinta festa fulfill my jealousy, FAFSA, whoa, your Salah welcome. If

00:28:36 --> 00:29:12

you are told to make room for one another in your assemblies, do so then do so? God will make room for you. This requires humility, right? you're told to you know, make room a requires Excuse me? A you know kindness, right and accommodation. do so and Allah will accommodate for you. And now here's the interesting part was that clean Ella with a free lunch shoe function if you are told to rise up if you're told to get up and move, okay? You're, you're sitting in a community gathering like a message. And you're told, get up from here and move and go there please. Okay.

00:29:13 --> 00:29:54

Fine. funcionou do so don't make it a matter. That's your own like your ego. Okay. You are humble in that moment. You're very level and I'm assuming God will raise in rank those of you who believe and those who have been given knowledge, you demonstrate your knowledge and your faith by suppressing your ego especially in that moment, that heated moment, you de escalate, you suppress your ego at that time, Allah will raise you, he will raise you in the eyes of the people, you will not be humiliated people will think of you as weak and, and, and and helpless. People will think you as courageous and very in control of your emotions and the law will raise you ranks in Paradise. That's

00:29:54 --> 00:29:59

far better than anything else, because he is fully aware of what you do. This is a very interesting thing because community has

00:30:00 --> 00:30:11

This friction, this friction that takes place a lot. spambot is saying, we humble Allah will raise you alone will raise you in rank. Don't make a scene out of these things. This is so critical.

00:30:12 --> 00:30:50

People come to the masjid. They're told Hey brother, you can pray here they start to yell and scream and they say I donate to the masjid. And I do this to the mother and my dad did this the mother brother no one cares what your dad did for the mother. No one cares what you did for them. Honestly. You are told to follow the rules you follow the rules the Quran says that right? Have some humility. Don't take it personally. Don't be the one who reminds others of their their good deeds as a favor as a leverage. Don't do that you're wasting your good deeds, you're hurting yourself nobody else this is such a critical idea to understand have humility, otherwise you are not going to function

00:30:50 --> 00:31:33

well as part of the community. Okay, then I number 14 speaks about betrayal in the community. Mr. Chairman, the community is unfortunately a thing for the people in Medina, it was a big deal because the the people who are pretending to be Muslims are hypocrites would go and betray the Muslims with their enemies that leaking out the plans of the Prophet sanlam or his his strategy. And as I mentioned before even setting up a Masjid to be like an outpost for the Byzantine Empire. So the ayah number 14 addresses that Have you not seen those who have befriended the people who have brought down upon themselves wrath of God, they are neither with you nor with them. And they

00:31:33 --> 00:32:01

wittingly swear to falsehood. Okay. This is specifically about the people of Medina who were hypocrites trying to make deals with the people of Medina who are Jews, gay, both of them working together to undermine the Prophet. And they don't actually get along. They don't really they're not like friends or something. They just the enemy of my enemy is my friend. That's the reason why they're together. law now my home income then are with you, then now from them either.

00:32:03 --> 00:32:17

This is what a terrible loss what what a terrible situation these people are in. And a last part I mentioned this, and he says, Don't I number 22. He says, people who

00:32:19 --> 00:32:46

Excuse me, I am a 22, lethargy, do coma, you know, be lucky when you're sad, you are doing a man had the lava rosulip you will find no believers in God. And the last day consorting with those who oppose God and His Messenger, okay, you want to do not just consoling, I think this is more like expressing love. And you know, like, mutual respect, or admiration. For those who

00:32:48 --> 00:33:36

are having affection. That's a good one. Right? For those who oppose Allah and His Messenger, even if they were their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers or kindred, this is important. meaning there's a what this is talking about is talking about a community community communal betrayal. Easiest way to think about it is you look at what's happening in modern day politics. But for example, there, there are a host of nations that are Muslims that are signing allegiance, you know, treaties, and cooperation, you know, terms with the State of Israel, while the State of Israel is actively oppressing the people of Palestine, taking their homes, taking their rights, you know,

00:33:37 --> 00:34:21

going and destroying the masjid, ambushing the worshipers, right? The point is, how can you cut a deal with people who are doing this to your own fellow brethren in faith? How can you do that? In what? In what good faith can you do this. And that shows that you're actually lacking the true understanding of faith by making these kinds of allegiances. This is what this is, is speaking about. The allegiances and the betrayal of the community as a whole. Not individually. If you're a Muslim, and your parents are not Muslim, you're gonna have an affection for them. Of course, you're supposed to have an affection for them, you're supposed to make dua for them, okay? That's obviously

00:34:21 --> 00:35:00

given this is talking about communal betrayal. And that is what Allah says, You will not find a person who truly believes to be doing that. The one who does that has flaws in the way they understand faith, or their faith is extremely weak, extremely weak. And this is what this speaks about. Surah surah 59 surah hasha Subhan Allah He manifests Amati Rama fell out of what are these Hakeem? This is the second of the five Musab behad. Okay, this speaks about the challenges of living together. So hasher speaks about the challenges of living

00:35:00 --> 00:35:39

Together, the Muslims had a lot of confrontations with the Jewish community in Medina. And it was not because of religion because the Muslims and Christians for example, in the other parts of the world after time, the problem lived fairly happily, if the Muslims and the the Zoroastrians, even Muslims and Jews later on, were able to live very, very comfortably. Like in Andalusia in Spain, the Jewish community actually started thriving after they were persecuted by the French. And by, you know, the,

00:35:40 --> 00:36:26

by the French primarily before they migrated to and lived under Muslim rule, and then the Spanish Inquisition happened, the Muslims got killed, the non acceptable Christians got killed and the Jews got killed and those Jews went from Spain to Morocco and Algeria and sought refuge there. Okay. So historically, this is not a problem, but this is specific to Medina, the prophet Sonam when he reached Medina, he signed a treaty with the Jewish tribes of Medina. Okay. And he said to them, okay, we are all living together. And what when we live together, we have to defend, defend the city together, we are all in this together, right. So now, here is the terms when we are attacked, we are

00:36:26 --> 00:36:49

all together. When in times of peace, you can live in your quarters, we live in our quarters, you implement your law, we implement our law, you don't have to pay any taxes to us. We won't pay any taxes to you. But when they're attacked, we unite to defend the city fair. Yes. All right. They all signed and agreed to that. All right. Now what happened? Now then, when the

00:36:51 --> 00:37:34

when Medina was attacked by the people of Makkah, the people in Makkah attacked Medina, the Jewish community, and there were three communities one of them is called Bunnell Nadu. they betrayed the prophets of Allah gave it is he who turned those people of the book but only who deny the truth out of their homes in the first banishment. The lll Hashem the second management is the day of judgment when they all come together, okay? You never thought that they would go and though and they thought that their strong rules will protect them against God, but God came upon them from where the least expected and cast such terror into their hearts that their houses were pulled down by their own

00:37:34 --> 00:37:47

hands as as well as by the hands of the believers learn a lesson then those who have you are endowed with insight. This is talking about the the idea that the trail of banana limb

00:37:50 --> 00:38:33

of the Muslim community breaking of that pact and led to this is a long, you know, story in the Sierra but they broke the treaty with the province sanlam. They tried to they try to assassinate him sauce on them, okay. In collaboration with the hypocrites, and when that happened, the browser is the deal is off, you tried to assassinate me, I came to your quarters, I sat in your house, and you're planning to kill me and I lost my thought told you to tell the prophet to leave. So that save the profs alum and that was the end of the pact and the, the when the seed was laid upon them, they were told, okay, you can you have to leave. But whatever you can carry on your camels you can take

00:38:33 --> 00:38:42

with you. And that's why they literally tore down their homes with their own hands, taking with them whatever they could, and they left the rest behind and loss as far as

00:38:43 --> 00:38:51

betrayal doesn't get you anything. Betrayal doesn't get you anything, okay. loyalty is what's going to get you things okay.

00:38:53 --> 00:39:34

Item number eight speaks about loyalty. Okay. These are the people who came from Makkah. They are demonstrating loyalty to the boss and the people who are Medina's who accept this them. They're demonstrating loyalty Alas, mother praises and both is number eight, he praises the people came from Makkah, poor refugees driven from their homes and their possessions, desire in the favor of God and his support in the gardens messenger Okay, that these these are the truth people, then praises the people of Medina who hosted them already settled in Medina firmly rooted in faith. They love those who migrated to them for refuge harbor no desire in their hearts for what has been given to the

00:39:34 --> 00:40:00

lecture. They give them preference over themselves, even if they too are needy. And those who are saved from their own souls greed are truly successful. Look at this beautiful example of what loyalty means here. These are people once faith has entered their hearts. It's firmly rooted, they're able to not just love for their brother, but the love for them.

00:40:00 --> 00:40:41

themselves. They love for the brother more than what they love for themselves. That's the level of Eman they reached. That's what the Sahaba in Medina, those who were Medina and, you know, indigenous muddiness. That's the level of demand and rich contrast that would like the Jewish community. Contrast that with the betrayal of the Medina and hypocrites, Anantara, Illa, Latina naffaa, who is number 11. They say to their disbelieving companions among the people the book, if you are driven out, we will surely go out with you. And we will never listen to anyone against you. And if war is waged against you, we will help you but Allah bears witness that they are liars. Because when that

00:40:41 --> 00:41:20

happened, they will not go with them. And when there is a word, they will not be fighting. And even if they were to fight, they will run away at the first instance of adversity. Hmm, very, very desert. You know, this is the challenge of living together in the, you know, difficult society and that's what the past of them was navigating. Okay? There's actually a very beautiful idea here I number 10. I want you to underline this in your Quran. This is a very beautiful door. You should all learn this and make this door up. Okay, those who came into feet after them. They say Our Lord forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith, and leave no malice in our hearts towards

00:41:20 --> 00:42:04

those who believe Lord, You are indeed compassionate and merciful. I've been in Naka row for what a beautiful day. The believers are all brothers and sisters, whenever wherever they lived, whatever time they lived in, and this is a Dora that we make that the fiction of living together as a believing community should not come in our hearts should not cause us should not rip us apart. So we ask Allah what alpha alpha alumina Villa Linden Armand wala leave no malice in our hearts towards those who believe so that we don't act like the hypocrites, and we don't act like the betraying Vanunu tribe from the Jewish community either Okay,

00:42:05 --> 00:42:48

the surah concludes with Allah has a glorious names and a reminder of salvation. Okay, this is so so that was community right? Remember this three main things I want to highlight the Musab behad Yeah, you're not gonna amanu and then the main theme, which is Faith Family community, so that was community. Here is something about faith in the surah Yeah, you already laminata Hola. Hola. Tengo una semana de matar, believers fear God, and that every soul looked to what it leaves up for the future. Look at what you're preparing for your future, your future, not your retirement fund your future in the next life? Fear God, God is aware of what you do. Don't be like those who forgot God.

00:42:49 --> 00:43:11

They forgot about Allah. They were too busy. They're too occupied. But they were too careless. They were too you know, just living the life for answer home on foster home what it allowed him to do. He caused them to forget their own souls. They forgot they Allah caused them to forget their purpose. And then their life was just a you're just there you're rotating on this

00:43:12 --> 00:43:46

body of water around a flaming you know body, heavenly body. That's what your life because you're just going around it year after year after year until you die. Right? And Sacramento's really the purpose has become forgotten. Like a wolf is when they're the ones who are rebellious. Again, rebellion isn't just a person rejecting an idea or being someone who betrays that's a communal betrayal. Yes, there's on a personal level on a faith level on a salvation level. rebelliousness or Fiske

00:43:48 --> 00:43:58

sinning insistence. insistence sinning is actually consumed being consumed by the pleasure to the world forgetting about the purpose of life.

00:43:59 --> 00:44:42

Also, as the people of the fire is to be naughty, whilst Aboriginal people the fire and the people of Paradise are not equal. The people of Paradise are the victorious ones. Now unzila has al Khurana illegible. Had we sent down this Quran on a mountain laurel Ada Hashimoto saadian Casa de la you will have certainly seen it falling down and splitting asunder because of the fear of God. We set these parables to men to so that they may reflect the Quran is so heavy that if it was revealed on a mounted heavy in the sense of the word carries as a message the mountain if it was to feel its weight would crumble. What about the rest of us hard hearts? Shouldn't they be humbled by the

00:44:42 --> 00:44:59

reminder of this Quran? Shouldn't we be inspired to look at our lives, take stock of it and start to rectify for our future? Who Allahu levina ilaha illa who he is God, there is no deity but him that he knows the unseen and the visible. He's the Compassionate, The Merciful

00:45:00 --> 00:45:35

He is the mighty and wise, very beautiful surah next is Surah Montana surah number 60. Sir Montana's team his mistakes happen. Look at this people.

00:47:21 --> 00:48:07

It speaks about community and again betrayal in of the community by this time an individual but this individual is not a hypocrite. He is not a disbeliever he is a faithful believer who is this person. His name is how even a Bible robiola His name is how gay how often was a poor man from America and how to as a poor man from mcca was afraid for his family when he left them in Makkah and came to Medina. So what he did is he made a deal with the people of Quraysh. When he left Makkah and came to Medina, he said, I will tell you, if the Prophet is about to come from Medina to Makkah to attack you, I will tell you, that's all he wanted, that that was the extent of his deal. But then the

00:48:07 --> 00:48:43

bargain the other side of the deal is don't harm my family. Okay? Now, this is a betrayal is a clear betrayal, you are compromising the profits on them, and putting the lives of so many people are at risk just to save the life of your family. This is not the way to do things. You have to figure out other ways if you want to, you cannot make these kinds of deals. This was unacceptable. But how there was a great Sahabi in the sense that he was an early believer, he fought in the Battle of battle he fought in the Battle of all these battles he was part of, but yet he made this fatal error. But look at how Allah corrects his mistakes. Yeah, are you one levina among all believers?

00:48:43 --> 00:48:50

Let at the Hebrew I do we were I do welcome Alia, to not offer friendship to those who are enemies of mine and yours.

00:48:52 --> 00:48:53

don't offer them friendship.

00:48:55 --> 00:49:33

Look, a last part is not singling out how to it's only one person who made that mistake. But Allah is addressing all believers. Yes, this is beautiful, because you don't want to single him out so he becomes defensive. If I didn't tell you the background, you won't even know his name. Right? If you didn't read it in the books of the scene, we will know who that person was. That's the beauty the Quran covered his flaws so perfectly right but the change took place. Would you show them affection when they rejected the truth you have received when they have driven you and your message and the messenger out of your homes simply because you believe in in God your Lord, right? How could you

00:49:33 --> 00:49:41

extend your your affection and friendship and how could you cut deals with people who kicked you out of your homes because of your feet?

00:49:42 --> 00:49:54

This is this element of betrayal is unacceptable. So Allah subhanaw taala you don't mention that and corrects that mistakes, but community also speaks about about

00:49:56 --> 00:49:59

this, this is not everybody's gonna kick you out of your home, who's not a Muslim

00:50:00 --> 00:50:32

Another believer, right there are people who are non Muslims who are good people, the vast majority of them. So how do you deal with them Lyon how como la vie de la Vina, let me tell you what you're looking for deny number eight, God does not forbid you to deal kindly and justly with anyone who has not fought you on account of your fate, or driven you out of your homes. Right, they have not fought you, they have not killed you, they have not expelled you because of your faith. If that's not the case, you have to be kind to them. You have to be just with them. In fact,

00:50:34 --> 00:51:15

anti barroom the word bill is used for righteousness. Remember the word I spoke about beer? It's like, from the word burn, which is landscape, right? All different types of lens, you know, all different types of, you know, lands you find, you know, we have trees and forests and mountains and deserts. SubhanAllah. Right. So beer is all different different kinds of goodness. That's the same word Allah uses for parents. That's the same word to use this to talk about righteousness. That's the same word he uses to talk about a non Muslims who you don't have a problem with because they didn't kick you out of your homes in fight you based on your faith. They are just non Muslims. So

00:51:15 --> 00:52:00

you have to be the same word beer is used. When it comes to dealing with them. That level of kindness is to be extended, what does it do and if you can't extend the level of kindness to them, at least be just that's the bare minimum right? Be just because Allah loves those who are just the only people that you are barred from extending affection and love to are the oppressors who caught a new COVID-19 they fought you fought against you on account of your faith will applaud you come in dare come and drove you out of your homes, or helped others to do so. Well. Law, hawala ethological this is the thing, what kind of what kind of dignity Will you have left? If you make friends with

00:52:00 --> 00:52:41

your oppressor and you shake their hands? And you kiss their hands? What dignity do you have left? Right? And that's what the Quran speaks about. So community betrayal here is mentioned in the surah. Last month, Allah addresses that don't betray or half club, don't betray the believers. Okay. And then at the same time, there's others who are, you know, like the non Muslims who are not on the opposing side, you know, they're just not Muslims, you can be kind you can be just you can be good to them. And that is something that is required as part of our faith, Justice at the minimum kindness and gentleness, and goodness, all that is recommended above that. Okay.

00:52:42 --> 00:52:50

Notice how nicely the mistake mistake was addressed by the last pop up. Okay, that's something to notice. When it comes to this nameless hoorah, Montana.

00:52:51 --> 00:52:54

This is from this is number 10.

00:52:55 --> 00:53:38

From the Hindu one, this is talking about believing women who fled Makkah coming to Medina, the process was told to verify that their true believing women, if they are truly women, then don't send them back to the people of Makkah, because they're not allowed to be in that marriage with them. You they are to stay with the believing men in Medina afterwards. Okay, so this is number 60. That speaks about also number 16 speaks about that. So we're number 61 is Surah SFX Subhanallah, Hema festa Marathi, Rama fill out the one who will I xizhou al Hakim, this is the third of our five Musab behat, the third of the five that begins at sub. Okay, this is a very beautiful Sula, this surahs

00:53:38 --> 00:54:03

team is all believers be the helpers of Allah, your faith and your community and your family. The collaboration of it should make you helpers of Allah. Okay. Don't be like those who say one thing and do the other Lima the Quran, Allah fagu don't preach and not practice. Don't say something and do the opposite. That is a terrible character flaw.

00:54:04 --> 00:54:07

My daughter is also giving a speech here, Marcelo

00:54:08 --> 00:54:37

gobbled up the name the law, he enter koulamallah falloon it is most hateful to God that you do not practice what you preach. You see how how stern The words are? Okay? If you want to be a helper of God, if you want your faith and family and community to fuse in this beautiful way, and that's an excellent life you're living start with practicing what you preach. Okay? That's what you start with. It speaks about

00:54:39 --> 00:54:43

Moosa and Risa how Musashi Salaam was,

00:54:44 --> 00:54:54

was had to face all types of grief from Bani Israel, you and Isa also to face all types of refund money study that is not being the helpers of Allah.

00:54:56 --> 00:55:00

It's not being helpful. It's actually very interesting. I number six, yeah, wait, hold

00:55:00 --> 00:55:06

So nobody made any sort of ill in the Rasulullah he he like him, or children of Israel I am.

00:55:08 --> 00:55:08

I am sent

00:55:09 --> 00:55:41

to you by God confirming the Torah that came before me and bring the good news of a messenger before me. Member this Mugu Ahmed, whose name will be adamant. This was the nickname of the prophets on them he was called Mohammed and because they were similar route letters, okay? Or it's exactly the same route letters, yet when he came to them with clear signs they said this is merely sorcery, so they rejected a salad salad even though he was clearly a messenger of God. Okay?

00:55:42 --> 00:55:45

A lot smarter in this, in this

00:55:46 --> 00:55:47


00:55:48 --> 00:56:29

advises us to do something that's profitable, shall I guide you to a profitable course of action that will save you from a painful, painful punishment. You believe in God and His Messenger and you strive for God's cause with your possessions and your lives, that will be better for you. If you only knew He will forgive your sins and embed you into gardens with rivers flowing under them, he will launch you can find dwellings in the gardens of charity that are legal fossil LVM that is indeed the supreme achievement. And he will give you something that you other types of things that you desire, not similar law he will attend for the help from God an imminent victory, give good news

00:56:30 --> 00:57:17

to the believers. If you believe in Allah and you become a helper of Allah, you are trying your best to do what you can you do so by helping financially, you will do so by helping with your lives, your time you volunteer your time you donate your money, that is a successful transaction, because Allah will forgive your sins. Enter you into paradise, give you happiness in the next life, happiness in this life, or you will believe I never at 14 kuno unsought Allah be the gods helpers, as Jesus Santa Mary said to the disciples, man, Ansari is Allah who will be my helpers in the cause of God. The disciples said, Nah, no unsought Allah We shall be God's helpers for I'm an appointed for the money

00:57:17 --> 00:57:22

Salah so some of the children of Israel believed in him a couple of Potiphar and some denied the truth

00:57:23 --> 00:57:29

for a year then alladhina amanu Allah or do we him for us bajo la hearin. So we helped.

00:57:30 --> 00:58:20

So we helped those. We supported the believers against the enemies, and they try and triumphed over them. This is just like EISA. This like the disciples of Risa, where his helpers, or you believers also be the helpers of God. So we're number 62 is our fourth of our five or so behind? Yes. And Surah 62 speaks about? Again, like I said, faith, family and community, those are three things that all of these things, these are all these three aspects are keep running through these, McCann, this Medina Sutras, and there's just these three aspects keep appearing in these Medina and sutras in this use. What is the theme of this sutra, the theme of the sutra is knowledge, without actions is

00:58:20 --> 00:59:05

useless if you just talk, talk, talk, talk, talk. And you don't implement or you learn but you don't become better. That's actually not valuable at all. It begins with the use of beholding right but look at what it says he is raised among another people in messenger from among themselves to recite his revelations to them, purifies them and teaches them the book and wisdom and for the had formerly been clearly been misguided. He also has sent the message to others from among them, who have not yet joined them, okay, this is talking about the rest of us. The Sahaba, of course, saw the process and he was from their ethnicity, he spoke their language, but look at what the Prophet did for

00:59:05 --> 00:59:52

things. he recited the Quran revelation, he purified them, you know, spiritually and physically. He taught them the book and taught them wisdom and that is what he teaches to everybody, irrespective of the time, irrespective of the place, irrespective of the language well when it is lacking, he is the mighty advise and wise delicate formula that is God's grace, He bestows it upon whom he pleases. Well loan from Levine, for God is limitless in his grace, you asked him for his grace, he will give it to you, and He will make you a follower of his prophet, and He will give you the pure purification of the soul, the knowledge of the book, the knowledge of the wisdom, the purpose in

00:59:52 --> 00:59:59

life, the happiness in this world, salvation, the asset, all of that is available to everybody, but a person has to ask

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


01:00:02 --> 01:00:10

knowledge without action the example of this is like a donkey carrying a load of books Mr. Kamath lol hi Maria

01:00:12 --> 01:00:19

means a donkey. Okay. Okay, if a donkey is carrying books is the are the books benefiting the donkey?

01:00:21 --> 01:00:32

No, of course not. This is not to say by the way that the people the people who are Jews are donkeys, that's a very poor, logical understanding of

01:00:34 --> 01:00:43

analogies, okay? Because you've you've taken the analogy and taken the image of the analogy and applied it to the person that you're trying to

01:00:45 --> 01:01:23

make a parallel with, you've equated the two. Okay, last one is equating the attitude of the Jewish community who were charged to attend to carry the Torah, live the Torah, understand it, practice and uphold it, that the analogy is being drawn between their attitude. And the situation of a donkey carrying books around carrying books is not going to make the donkey any better. He could carry the greatest works in the world, that's not going to somehow seep into him and he will know it. And now the donkey becomes, you know, a wise and whatnot, he will just be carrying them.

01:01:25 --> 01:02:07

That's the same example of somebody who is burdened with the knowledge of Scripture, but doesn't put it into action. Just carrying books around. It's more like a burden than anything else. That is what Allah does pointing out. And this is a critique of the Jewish community, but it's also a mirror for the rest of us. That's the faith. You want to put your faith into action. Then Firstly, understand and then secondly, practice okay. A mistake community a mistake made by the Sahaba Yeah, you will live in harmony either no de la sala. Believers when the call to prayer is made on the day of congregation on Juma first, illogically love, then Histon to the remembrance of God. Leave all

01:02:07 --> 01:02:40

worldly commerce. This is for your own good, if you but knew it. When the prayer is ended, disperse in the land and seek to obtain something of God's bounty and remember God much that you may prosper when they see some merchandise or entertainment. They break away to go to it and leave you standing. What is this talking about? First thing you see how a lot smarter begins by saying you Oh, you who believe. Here's what you need to do when it's time for Juma stop business stop trading come to the prayer.

01:02:41 --> 01:03:27

First out in the remembrance of God, the Juma prayer is supposed to remind you of Allah leave all commerce leave all business. Leave it all okay, that's for your own good. This was not done by the Sahaba in an instance Okay, what happened is that the call center must be given a hook by once and a Kadima three rule Medina, a caravan came to Medina carrying supplies and when a caravan would come, you would go and buy what you need to buy. So the people who were in attendance were worried that they will lose out on buying things. Yes, so they quickly got up from the Jumeirah went and started buying the things that needed to buy before someone else bought it. And they left the profits alum

01:03:27 --> 01:04:09

standing on the member and speaking to basically an empty room for Carlton as well as natural radula there was only 12 people left behind the rest entire Moscow, evacuated left the provinces understanding the game of football Can you imagine? That was what happened? So almost not that I correct this, firstly by saying here is the ruling. Don't do anything when Juma has started, you come to the prayer and you come into the remembrance of God. Okay, but once the prayer is done, you're not held back go and seek your your bounty Go and do your business that you have to do. But as you're doing that as you're seeking your livelihood Don't forget about Allah. Right? What's good

01:04:09 --> 01:04:51

luck if you don't still remember God and His favor, that is what will bring you success and prosperity in this life in the next and then Allah addresses the mistake of us harbor that they left you standing that was unacceptable we couldn't they shouldn't have done that. To remind them all mine the law you hieromonk Allah who you want a woman at the jar see that which is which God has in store is better than any merchandise or entertainment. God is the most magnificent giver, a low hierarchy and he's the one who gives the best risk. The best provider is Allah spawn Tada. Don't worry, Allah is the best provider he will provide for you. Okay, so this is an excellent way how

01:04:51 --> 01:05:00

beautifully Allah corrects the mistake of the Sahaba here with our OTDR Okay, so this is Surah number

01:05:00 --> 01:05:44

62 or 63 is on Manasa *, the hypocrites. They're hypocrites when they come to you. They say, we bear witness that you are indeed the Messenger of God. God knows that you are indeed His Messenger. But God bears witness that the hypocrites are surely liars. They use their oats as a cover as a ruse. The US there, they say we believe but I swear by Allah, I believe in you, I swear. They're loud. They're trying to misdirect they're hollow from the inside. So they make a lot of noise so that you don't maybe you forget that they're not they're empty game. But they are the ones who bar others from the way of God they're truly evil. These are people who are, like I said, they're

01:05:44 --> 01:05:52

they're specifically talking about people in Medina, who were disbelievers while pretending to be believers, okay?

01:05:54 --> 01:06:00

That's what Allah says about them. They believed and then rejected their faith, their hearts are sealed up, so they're devoid of understanding. Okay?

01:06:01 --> 01:06:44

But the lesson here is, there isn't there's a danger of pretentiousness, someone being all talk and no action, it ties in very beautifully with the previous surah which was about put your knowledge into action, okay. This one is like this are the people who are pretentious, that is what ends up happening to them. Okay. This surah speaks about the warning to people who are all talk and no action, not to be like that. He says, look, all believers I number nine, do not let your wealth and your children distract you from the remnants of God, those who do so will be losers were unfair, who spend out of what We have provided you before that comes to you. And he says, My Lord, if you only

01:06:44 --> 01:07:03

were to grant me respect for a little while, I would give arms and I will be among the righteous, while you will get a loan of son Elijah, I don't know how but God will not grant a reprise to a soul when it's appointed time has come because he is well aware of what you do. This is the idea a person's

01:07:04 --> 01:07:46

actions, they are the ones that determine their, you know, their their end. And when a person is dying, all they would wish for is just a few moments, they can go back and do some good and specifically the good of spending for the sake of Allah and helping somebody who has a need, that is what they will wish for. And that is what's what I'm going after foon addresses at the end of speaking about the specific hypocrites at the time of the promise of them. But generally at the end, the reminder for the believer is do not let your wealth and your children distract you from the members of God. Don't get caught up in the pleasures of this life. the ups and downs of this life.

01:07:47 --> 01:07:51

Don't be like the hypocrites surah number 64 Robin

01:07:53 --> 01:08:30

01:08:32 --> 01:09:17

masaba minimal See, but in a lobby in the law, no affliction can befall man, but by God's permission, he guides the hearts of those who believe in Him. God has knowledge of all things. Whenever something good happens whenever something bad happens, people that is from Allah, we accept his decree. We accept that there is wisdom in what he does, even if you don't see it. We are patient until we see it we make dua that Allah you know, you mean Billa when you believe that when you believe in this, yeah, the whole but Allah guides your heart gives you the strength gives you, you know, consoles you to bear the difficulty, so panela, Atilla or other euroschool difficulties in

01:09:17 --> 01:09:47

life should not stop you from practicing your faith continue to obey God and obey the messenger. But if you turn away, remember, remember the messenger is only responsible for for clearly conveying the message His job is to convey the message and nothing more. His job is not to change your minds. His job is not to change your actions. You have to change yourselves and that is what the messenger does. So understand as part of fate. Difficulties will come. Don't let those difficulties

01:09:49 --> 01:09:59

you know forget make you forget that Allah is the one who's in charge who centers believe in that except there's wisdom ik Be patient and Allah will guide your heart.

01:10:00 --> 01:10:47

make things better for you. Okay. It speaks about family and number 14. Yeah, you're living in harmony in them in as well as you come out daddy come I do welcome home. Believers, even among your wives and your children, you have enemies not that they're like literal enemies, but they could distract you or they could become a source of difficulty for you. If they are asking you to do things that contradict the principles and tenants of faith for the room, so be aware of that. But if you overlook and forgive and pardon, then surely God is Forgiving and Merciful into awful What does for what often find the love of our lives Mandala, forgiving and overlooking and forgiving, right?

01:10:47 --> 01:11:35

This is how we deal with family. This is how we're taught to deal with family in the Quran. They are going to say things do things demand things that are going to be very difficult. But be gentle, be forgiving, overlook. Don't keep a note of like a like a tally of offenses. That doesn't do any good.
