sudo hamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah hamdulillah Hamdan UEFI Nana who carry on omega or sallallahu ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Allah Allah And so now, when China beam antenna was Idina alemania Kareem or beshara, Sidley, Emery, Melissa Nia Coco, Leon, visit any element, or visit any element or be Sydney.

00:00:37--> 00:00:48

Welcome back, dear viewers to this episode of your series that I've seen of silicon, here's what I wear. And we discuss some of the benefits and some of the secrets that are found within sort of that hurdle, right?

00:00:49--> 00:01:29

we reflect on some of the ayat of sort of your art and we're looking at I in number four, Allah subhana wa tada says, In the livina, you're now doing a cameo in her jurati a cuddle hula hit on those people that call you from behind your home, right from outside of your home. What are the boundaries. So what's being referred to over here is the boundaries of the houses of Rasulullah. So the walls within which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would reside with his wives. So now some people would come specifically over here, their reference is to bento Tamim and many other tribes that had come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during the year of the delegations.

00:01:30--> 00:02:08

So they would come in, they would stand outside of the house, and at times, even in an awkward time of the day. So for example, some of them had come at the time of look, at the time of the whole noon time, noon time is the peak time of the day for many people across the world, in many cultures across the world. But for the culture, within the Arabian society, noon time is the time where you go to sleep, even till today, if you go to certain Arab countries, you'll find that noon times they'll shut down all the stores, everything will close down, all activity will stop. And then they'll start back at around hustle time around four or five. In most of the Arabian Peninsula. This

00:02:08--> 00:02:44

is how things work because of the extreme heat. So people are sleeping and resting or they're enjoying their time with their families at this time in their houses having lunch or other things of that sort. But sort of Lhasa center is having his private time some of these people come and they start to say oh Mohammed all come out to us and tell us or come out to us and this and that and they want to discuss with him things at this time. So Allah subhana wa tada says, those people that call you from behind your walls First of all, if you go outside of someone's house, his windows open and you start yelling for land come outside, it doesn't sound right. So this is not from the etiquettes

00:02:44--> 00:03:31

of a believer that are let alone the etiquettes of a human being. So they started addressing a suit of law in this manner abruptly outside in a very obnoxious way. So Allah subhana wa tada says, those that are calling you from outside of your houses do rot a total home layout. They don't most of them do not have intellect. Yeah, they don't means Apple intellect. Now, likely, if they're coming as a delegation, especially an official one, from a tribe from another part of the world, are another part of the Arabian Peninsula. They likely have some intellect for them to be sent as ambassadors by the leaders within their areas or their tribes. But still Allah subhana wa tada says they don't have

00:03:31--> 00:04:11

oppan You know why? Because Auckland is a type of intellect. Or aka the word aka Allah, it means to stop someone from something meant Allah be Mana Mana Allah means to stop someone. So if a person has intellect, then in reality that intellect should be dictating him to do right or wrong, should be stopping him from some things, and encouraging him to do other things. If there's something wrong that the person wants to do, even if they're just telling the soul is telling of that, and telling him I have to do that, right. The intellect should be, should be stopping the individual from going down that direction. So these people their intellect wasn't stopping them from going down that

00:04:11--> 00:04:50

direction. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Excel alone. They don't, most of them did not have intellect. Otherwise they would have paused, halted, waited until it was sort of lock him out. And then they would speak to him just like you would do to any other human being acceptable whom diaclone Now the idea about Excel, most of them, not every single one of them thought that this is a good thing to do. Not every single one of them actually did it himself as well or herself. But since they didn't stop everybody else, as well. Allah says most of them do not have alcohol. They don't stop for themselves and they're not stopping other people also, from the evils that they may be

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

undertaking what oh, unknown, so about what should they have done? Allah says if they were to be patient, had that the hora de la him

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

They were only to be patient until you come out to them for yourself had that the whole aim.

00:05:07--> 00:05:39

Then what would have happened, let Ghana hire alone, this would have been better for them. So it would have been better for them to be patient until it was sort of luck comes out to them. And notice how beautifully Allah puts this, Allah says if they work to be patient, until he comes out, but not just until he comes out until he comes out to them, right? Because sometimes a person comes out of their house and they have something else to do. Sometimes the person is walking down the street, they have something else to do. Sometimes the person is walking down the street, they have something else to do, they're not coming to see you specifically, right, they have other things

00:05:39--> 00:06:17

within their lives as well. So you, as a person are expected not to bother people on their own personal times, even or sort of loss of limb, the one whose time is dedicated to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah is saying, if the work to be patient until you come out to them specifically, ie not if you're going out for sell, or if you're going out for something else, and the profits or send them is going out for something else, he's busy of something else, right? Maybe he's going to visit one of his children or wives or so on and so forth. Right? If the profits are cinnamons doing something else, then even in that circumstance, they shouldn't be bothering him. When are they permitted to

00:06:17--> 00:06:53

talk to him or they should be encouraged to talk to him when the profit center actually realizes they're standing outside? They've knocked the door and then he comes out to attend to their requests specifically, there are a group of people sometimes some of the scholars they said 70 people right. So at that moment, the prophets attention is dedicated to these people. This is when they should be conversing and dialoguing, and talking about whatever they wanted to talk about before that after that, a prophet to send them has his own things he's occupied with as well. had that the hora de la la Cana hieronder home that would have been better for them. Well Allahu la foto Rahim and Allah

00:06:53--> 00:07:33

subhanho wa Taala is ever forgiving. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is also ever Merciful as well. Why would that have been better for them? Because you see, or pseudo la from his beautiful manners and etiquette was that no matter who the person may be, when the Prophet gives him, his attention, the prophets all along where it was sent him does whatever that individuals asking for so long as he can, so long as that particular action is not from the disobedience of Allah subhana wa Tada. Even if it's a young little girl, she grabs the finger of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and walks him around Mecca, or Medina because she has something to do that profits in the long run, he

00:07:33--> 00:08:10

would sit down would conform, give her his finger and he would walk wherever she wanted him to go, right? This is a lawsuit of loss Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So it would have been better for them to wait because whatever they were asking for the profits or seller would have helped them with and that's why a poet says, map Allah Allah, Allah vitosha hoody, Natasha hoodoo Jana Tila una ami, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not say La Kaku, it never said no, in La vitosha hoody, except when it came to his t shirt, except when it came to a head to Allah, Allah in the law, because in that you have to negate that there's any deity worthy of worship except Allah, you say

00:08:10--> 00:08:46

there is no god worthy of worship except Allah Other than that, whenever you ask, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of anything, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through his generosity, through his benevolence, he would give up whatever it was, and for that reason, you'll find that our sort of loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam never gives a cut. Why? Because he would get wealth from Allah subhanho wa Taala, you would get wealth from the word booty, the prophets or send them would gain wealth from different angles, right? He was a business man as well at points in his life. But every time he would get money he was so giving that by it wouldn't last for a year in

00:08:46--> 00:09:22

order for us would have lost a lot where it was in them to be giving the cash because whenever somebody would come and ask him of anything, he would give it and if he didn't have it, he would take a loan and give it This was also the law. So it had they waited for a little while, they would have gotten what they're looking for anyways, and in a more positive manner. Hola Hola. Hola Rahim. And yes, they've made a mistake. So Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will forgive for them that mistake they shouldn't despair from the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala Allah is Ever forgiving, and Allah will surely forgive. Now Allah brings another Ayah over here in the surah where he says yeah, you

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

have levena Amano. Oh, you believe and remember, we said, this is a sutra that is very, very particular to the believers. So yeah, you're letting me know is a common theme here. Allah says now Oh, who you believe? Now every time we say this, remember the statement of Abdullah ibn Mr. Rue de la de Allahu taala. You are told us that whenever you hear Oh, who you believe, then listen very carefully. For in the whole Mr. Hale on tomorrow be in my shot one to none. Then be very, very careful of it and mindful of it because it's either something good you're being told off, or it's something evil that you should stay away from over

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

hearing losses in Java come faster when there's some guidance here. By the way, this guidance is beautiful. Allah says in Java confessio can be never inflatable. You know, if a person with Fiske comes to you what's a person with risk, if a person who is an evildoer, okay, now this evildoer could be a Muslim, it could be a non Muslim, it could be either one of those categories. So Allah guides us and says, Whoever this evildoer is if he comes to you, and he brings us a story about someone or something or a concept or an idea, then what is what are you to do fit that baby? No, then make sure of what is being said, What is that facet? You see, we said a believer could also be

00:10:38--> 00:11:21

at times faster, right? Someone that isn't evildoer. Faster, literally means a date that you peel of the peel of the date, okay? So dates go through different stages, before they become ripe. And before they become that nice, juicy data that you'll find at any superstore about your house, called a robot, right? They become that nice, juicy date. Before it gets to that stage, it is kind of yellow, and that time, it's called a buzzer. Okay, so the first stage would be buzzer. There's other stages, but I'm skipping them. So the first stage for all practical purposes is a buzzer. And this kind of tastes like a fruit more or less like an apple, but it leaves a distinct aftertaste in your

00:11:21--> 00:11:27

mouth. That's called a buzzer. And then after we get to the stage, the next stage, which is

00:11:29--> 00:12:08

at times when the date starts to become dry, as it is nice and moist, it's moist, and then now it's starting to dry. When it's drying, you can easily peel off the peel of the date. Okay, if you've played around with dates, or eight, enough dates, you know exactly what I'm talking about if you haven't, and start getting yourself some dates, okay, so you peel off the date, cover. And when you peel off the date cover, now you have this nice, juicy, moist brown date, that is very, very sticky. If you were to throw this date on the ground, it will, it will attract all the ear and it will attract all the dirt and they'll attract all the mess and it will get all messy and wrapped up with

00:12:08--> 00:12:57

a lot of mess. Why? Because it's nice and juicy. And it's nice and sticky as well. So fast, ah, and then after that it dries fully and it becomes a demo. Okay, so that's called a dry date. Now, faster is this idea. linguistically, it means that when you take that nice moist date, and you rip it off of its peel, when you rip it off, it's peel that nice juicy pulp if you please of the date. It is it can be affected by any thing within its surrounding anything that is that can be in that can be attracted by something that is sticky, that date will attract that and it will get stuck to it. Right. So one thing at a time, the date will become so messy and filthy that nobody would want to

00:12:57--> 00:13:01

even eat it or touch it and it will no longer remain edible anymore.

00:13:02--> 00:13:41

He man is like that layer that you have around you. Belief is like that layer that you have around you. As you do one thing that is evil, and you do another thing that is evil, that belief becomes decreased and decreased and decreased to a degree that you become like this date that doesn't have a cover around it. So anything that touches it, it starts to attract it and it becomes filthy and it becomes dirty. No longer is it edible. No longer is it tasty. No longer does anybody want to eat it, right? belief is like this date. That belief is that covering around the date when you peel the covering off, then fess up, you have now become a date that doesn't have appeal. Right. And now that

00:13:41--> 00:14:20

you are a date that doesn't have appeal, anything that occurs around you it can have a major major impact within your life. It can have a major negative impact within your life and evil that occurs. It can mess mess up the entire date for you mess up the entire email for you mess up the entire belief for you. So Allah subhana wa tada says, When a person of such nature comes to you, right, he still is a believer, we're not talking about someone that is that has left the fold of Islam right. But he or she has not understood how to insulate that a man when a person of such nature comes. Allah says with any comes with a story for debate. Yeah, no, that makes sure of that story. Now,

00:14:21--> 00:14:59

notice that this story was this particular I was actually revealed in an incident in which the prophets I'll send him send one of the companions of the Prophet to the tribe of banana mousse palette, the tribe of banana metallic, and the tribe of animals today, they wanted to accept Islam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had sent a delegation to them and they wanted to also give there's a God as well. Right? So when this individual had went to bed, animal sponeck, right, to a to to help them, teach them more about Islam and bring them closer to Islam and also get that out from them as well. So when this individual had went towards them,

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

He noticed that they're approaching from a distance, okay? A person, single individual walking in the middle of the desert towards a drive. And there's an entire tribe walking towards him. He started to have evil thoughts. He said, Maybe they're out to kill me. Maybe they are to do something of me. Maybe maybe maybe lots of different things, right. So, at that moment, the person he retracted, he moved back, he started approaching the prophets. I said, I'm going to the prophets of Salaam, thinking in his mind that maybe these people are going to do something evil to me. And when he went to law school of law, he said, they didn't give me the sadhaka they didn't give me the

00:15:34--> 00:15:38

Zakat, and they wanted to kill me or something like that. Right.

00:15:40--> 00:16:18

So when that occurred, the Prophet sallallahu it was send them wasn't so sure about the situation. Some of the other people companions, they started to say, let's go to war with them. Let's do this. Let's do that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is still maintaining his patience. So Allah subhana wa tada revealed from above the seven heavens, he said, Oh, who you believe when an evil door comes to you. Now this is a companion we're not calling him an evil door. But Allah subhana wa tada is giving us a general principle over here that even if a person has evil thoughts about somebody else, that can be enough of a reason to be evil. Okay, so Allah subhana wa tada says that,

00:16:19--> 00:17:01

oh, who you believe when an evildoer comes to you? And he comes with a story, forget that. But ya know, then make sure of that story. And to see Well, why should you make sure, because if you don't make sure you might end up harming a group of people. Oh, man, B Johanna, out of your ignorance. You're not sure about something but you inflict harm upon somebody else, despite the fact that you're not even sure, right? Don't do that Allah subhanaw taala says, try to speak her Alana file to the mean. And if you do that, then you will become remorseful upon what you have done. So when we also hear of stories about other people, we should also be very careful of making sure that that

00:17:01--> 00:17:37

story happens to be true. Sometimes what happens is, someone sees an individual outside, a brother and a sister, they happen to be in a mall together, they happen to be in a scenario together, let's say whatever the scenario may be, right? And the story starts off at a cellphone ally saw him and her sitting down for dinner, and maybe their brother just took a seat to tie his shoelaces. Who knows, right? But the story starts off with that. And then the story continues on even more. And the story then begin, it develops into not just a person sitting on a table with the opposite gender, it becomes they were doing something in the mall, and then it becomes a stealth role. I can't even

00:17:37--> 00:18:12

explain to you what was happening. And then it becomes Subhan Allah, May Allah forgive this individual, right. And the story keeps on developing. And what we've been told is that when someone that is an evildoer, and the reason why I highlight that this is a companion is not so we proclaim that the companion is an evildoer. We're trying to say that. This doesn't mean that only when a person does not have a beard, the sister does not have a hijab, and they're doing their, you know, in a club or something of that nature that we apply this verse, even if a person happens to be appearently pious,

00:18:13--> 00:18:30

there is every single person in the world has an aspect of impede in biasness right mpsp every single person has an aspect of that. So if a person brings a story we have been commanded to make sure of that story before we do anything with that story. Right?

00:18:32--> 00:19:11

And not that immediately as soon as the story comes to us we receive that story not even with our ears, we don't even receive it and and and sort of process the information and internalize the information we just speak with it. We just say whatever was said to us, and that's why Allah subhana wa tada tells us in the Quran, about people that do such he says if della goanna who will be alsina Tikun what the una FYI comb when a story is coming to you, what do you do you receive it with your tongues, you actually receive stories with your tongues. Nobody receives that story with their tongue, they receive it with the ear, but Allah subhana wa tada says that the process of the story

00:19:11--> 00:19:43

going into the ear was cancelled out because this person didn't verify and didn't think about what he's hearing. He simply just heard it and said it. It says if the reception actually occurred with enough, right, it's a metaphor, but because it occurred so fast the reception was through the mouth. What the una BF Why come and then you just when you receive it with your tongue, you don't let it get inside, you just say it as well. Say it out loud. And we say in English, the person that just speaking through his teeth are lying through his teeth, right? That means that the person is not really he doesn't really believe in what he's saying. He's just lying through his teeth. He knows

00:19:43--> 00:20:00

he's wrong, but he's still saying it. Allah says what? You think that this particular thing, the idea of receiving a story through your tongue meaning just cancelling the processing part and the internalization part, just saying whatever you hear, here's a right that thing that I

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

idea you think is, it's high in what that said, whoo hoo Hainan, you think it's there's no problem with it at all. It's Hey, and it's a light matter.

00:20:08--> 00:20:27

Well who are in the lobby as for Allah subhanho wa Taala. He thinks that this matter is very severe. He thinks that this matter requires a severe punishment, that you just take the lives and the honors of other people into your own hand by saying whatever you just hear.

00:20:28--> 00:21:09

But no, what we're supposed to be doing is for who we're supposed to be making very short and by and means something that is explicit. So until the matter becomes explicitly clear to us, we don't speak of it but that begun, and and even if it does become explicitly clear, then we've been commanded to what we've been commanded to veil our brothers and sisters, Monsanto, domina cetara, Holloman Tiana, whoever covers up the sin of a believer that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will cover his sins up on the day of judgment and to Cebu calm and Vidya Hara. If you end up not doing this then you will harm a group of people with ignorance and then what will happen for those who Allah Masha Allah do not

00:21:09--> 00:21:45

demean and then you will become remorseful upon what you have done. You may say sorry, forgive me write an email, apology, all sorts of things. But none of that will work. Because the remorse will remain the feelings that you played with the other individual who didn't care of you didn't make sure of the story when it was coming to you, then that those feelings will always remain and they say psychologists they say people will forget what you say people will forget what you do. People will forget everything, but they will never forget how you make them feel. So no matter how many times you apologize after this, the remorse will always remain within you because you'll see a

00:21:45--> 00:22:01

distance between you and this individual who you spoke easily of without making sure what was happening. I asked Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us guidance Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was within the ranks of the companions. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well mo no.

00:22:03--> 00:22:24

And nafi como rasulillah within your ranks is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What does that mean? That means that within you also have among you is the messenger, right and fecal means inside of you okay? And the reason why I highlight that is because whenever you have something covering something

00:22:25--> 00:22:51

right when you have a seashell inside of it as a pearl, when you have a a gift box inside of it as a gift, when you have a briefcase inside of it as money or papers, whatever is inside is normally more valuable than whatever is outside. So Allah subhana wa tada says, inside of us rasulillah meaning Rasulullah is the one who is more valuable.

00:22:52--> 00:23:34

You are just around rasulillah benefiting from the existence of rasulillah while mo and nephew Kumar Salama know that within you as Rasul Allah And no, this is a command for the rest of time. It's for me for you for the Sahaba that were around Rasul Allah. So how do we understand now that among us is our pseudo law that we understand this ayah for us, in our case, is that we understand that the Sunnah of Rasulullah will always and forever remain among our ranks and if we wish to get the guidance from Allah, so Allah then the Sunnah is living on and it will live on so long as Allah subhana wa tada wishes for the legacy of this religion to live on while mo NF eco masala know that

00:23:34--> 00:24:14

within you is rasulillah know you'll do comfy cuz he didn't mean in a minute Emory law. If he was to follow you in a lot of what you tell him to do, then you would have went through a lot of problems. Now I need to learn, then you would have fell into distress. What do you mean you would have fell into dress this dress? If somebody conforms to whatever you want, that normally you don't fall into distress, right? But a lie saying if he conforms to what you want, then you will fall into this distress. Why? Because they're messengers on the long run even send them as a leader. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the one who is leading the Sahaba the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:24:14--> 00:24:47

sallam is governing the Sahaba. So when somebody is governing someone else, so if somebody is leading someone else, someone is guiding someone else, then we leave that individual in the guidance role. But if we start to become the guiders, and if we start to become the leaders, despite the fact that we weren't in the leader, ship position there, then what happens is things start to become really messy. Things start to become haywire. Nobody knows who's making the decisions, nobody knows who's making the calls, and there and everything starts to become haywire. So Allah subhanho wa Taala guides us a habit. Yes, you really want it to go and get better and we'll study for what they

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

had done, but you remain calm. rasulillah makes the decisions while lacking the La Habra la calm, rather Allah subhanho wa Taala has made beloved to you and we'll talk more about what Allah subhana wa

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

had made beloved to the Sahaba in our subsequent episode, join us as we continue to do rock, jazz Akuma loja and for listening, also Mullah Mohammed in bH Marine, or said Mr de como la barakato
