Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Hill but the cats who made the Peace and blessings of alabi upon you all we have reached the 26th part June 26, Chapter 47 verse 24, where Allah subhanho wa Taala is speaking about the people that in Islam are known as the hypocrites and hypocrites are people not just people that don't do what they say that they do or that they will do? Rather it is those that have the statements of belief within their tongues. In they may do the actions of the believers but in their hearts is disbelief in their hearts is disbelief and dare even say hatred and enmity for Islam and Muslims. Now, there are many reasons why the people during the time of the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam became hypocrites. Some of them wanted to overpower Islam, some of them were weak and wanted to be with who they felt was stronger and didn't want to find any opposition from their people.
But when a law speaks about this group of people, he gives him many characteristics and we find them in the province. A lot of us have them sooner as well. For example, the province of the law that was sending him, he says in a hadith that's motiva con la he says, I met all the signs of a hypocrite or three, either had the candidate
what either what are the left with a two minute on the promise or something he said that the signs of a monastic are three, they're three signs that if an individual was to do this, then this could be the characteristics of the hypocrite. He said, If he was to speak, when he speaks, whenever he speaks, he lies
or whenever he gives a promise, he breaks it. Or whenever he's trusted with something, he is not trustworthy. he deceives that trust. That's the signs of a hypocrite and these were the hypocrites did during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Last month Allah mentions
they within the prayer call muku Salah you're on the NASS with a akuna La Ilaha Lila, were either no deal if they were to be called to the prayer all muku Salah they stand laziale
you're on a nice just to be seen my men, and they do not remember a lot except a little bit. So these are signs of the monastics. So what is another sign that Allah subhanaw taala says about them in the chapter of Muhammad? It's a rhetorical question for all of us to think about. Last month, Allah when he mentioned the monastic gain, and he talks about them, he asks a basic question and it's important for us when looking at rhetorical questions that we understand that the question is a question that we know the ultimate answer. We know what the answer is. So when a lot of kind of would die like gives the question it's for us to ask Are we have those people are we have that
characteristic? Do we fall into that characteristic of people? So when Allah subhana wa tada says, if there are the lamina shaytaan rejean of Allah get the berguna Khurana Allahu Lubin up or Fado. How do they not contemplate over the Quran? Or is there coverings on their heart?
on their heart? And this is important because when we read the Quran, are there things that push us to turn it away? listening to it, reading it, pondering over it? Are there things that push us away from the remembrance of the Quran? And pondering over the Quran? You know, I'm not claiming he talks about his rando Koran of leaving the Quran. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was talking about his people, it took a little called Anima. Julian, they took it as an object of avoidance. So when we as Muslims, we have to ask ourselves, how many times have we open the Quran to read it for guidance, those of you that have converted to Islam, and you read the Quran, and it was a means for
your conversion or reversion. That's what Allah Subhana Allah wants that feeling that you had, when you were reading the Quran, and you said, You know what, this is the message, this has to be the truth. You're thinking of something in your life, when you're reading about the chapter of use of the chapter of Joseph and his brothers were jealous about people being jealous with you. And you ask Allah to protect your heart. You think about the story of Moses and how he was scared when he went against the tyrant, and how Moses needed help when doing the right thing. And how Moses Subhanallah was someone that was devoted to Allah and you think about your life in those instances. That's the
pondering over the Quran. But if some someone doesn't believe in Allah, or they have some ulterior motive, that is the characteristic of the one that is termed as the monastic of the one that is a hypocrite, may Allah protect us and make not make make us not make us from them. So take it upon ourselves, let's take it upon ourselves, to pick up the Quran to read the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and allow what we read, to contextualize it within our lives, and conclude that by doing an action at least of making dua to protect
This or to keep us in actions of higher and increases in good. But most importantly in the best of that is to act out that to exemplify that. May Allah Subhana Allah make us of those that ponder over the Quran may protect us from being any of those from having any of those characteristics of hypocrisy within our tongues, within our actions, and most importantly, within our hearts.
