have the names being being talked about in the in the sequence that they were talked about and in the way that they were kind of presented, but I'll leave it at what we did in Charlottetown. Hopefully there was enough benefit in that. And we'll move on to certainly mustafina Certainly Montana or El Montana again, you could, you could has both wording just like the majority that can be called one with both wordings are correct. And I'm talking about within this just from Abuja, to Attorney where this cluster between Jaga Tarim, this many clusters, all sources that were revealed in Medina, that talk about aspects of organ or organizational aspects of the Muslim lives. So when
we talk about organization organize the lives of Muslim individuals, with Muslims within the community within the whether it be the spouses or their
Muslim brothers, or with leadership, or the counterparts, certain harshal talks about relationship, but within within the confinements of citizenship, and dealing with people who maybe aren't similar to you, but still within a country and what betrayal actually turns into, and when to do the technicalities of that sort of talks about organizing the relationships between Muslims and non Muslims, non Muslims, combative, non combative, and those who accept Islam. Alright, so these are the three, the three things that looks at. So it talks about the relationship that we have is very relevant, it's extremely relevant SUTA to learn for sure.
Because of the fact that it talks about that, it explains specifically again, outside of the outside of the confinements of citizenship, which is what Suez did how to talk to so it's, as you looked at it, as in this is the country, here's who was living in it. Now you have people who are you have those who, who who've been living there for a long time, you know, the Muslims are coming in as refugees. You have those who will come in later you have those who are, who are poor, who are who can't make ends meet and the financial system that will be required to support them. You have those who betrayed you of those who are hypocrites are similar to you, but don't actually do what you
actually stand. But you have those who just believe in you and don't agree with you, and are different than you. Some of them actually continue to live with you normally, and some of them don't. So that's suitable Dan, I just kind of takes away one piece as a Muslim, how do you deal with non Muslims, people don't believe what you believe in. And it looks at the three different categories non Muslim, combative, non Muslim, non combative, and then those who accept converts those who accept Islam. And it's very important, because a lot of the
uncertainty, or the lack of clarity when it comes to how what perspective Muslims have with non Muslims will will fade away, once you understand certain on China and definitely read may read the whole sutra in some degree of
depth, because it really does explain things very clearly, it leaves no room for ambiguity.
It's only two pages and a half. But for sure, it has a lot to learn for us to learn from the beginning of it. So certainly it isn't late to mid any sooner. Again, it's one of the later ones, as most of of this user is their leaders who does.
It happened right after or during the time of just around time after time. The first verse that we're going to read together, the first three actually,
they quote, a certain incidents that I'm going to share with you, I'll tell you the stories you understand the incident. And then the three verses or afterwards our commentary on that incident, in terms of how versatile again, it's all talking about our relationship with with non Muslims and how it should be. And it's very revealing because it shows you what the what the what the norm is what the norm is the norm, the norm is is your relationship with human beings is based on love, is based on compassion, that is the norm the Quran, because that's the norm points out when that shouldn't be the case. When the case here, they're, they're combative with you, they're harming you, you can't
treat them as if they are they are compassionate or that they see you equally you have to stand your ground you have to you have to defend yourself and fight back. The Quran needing to do that means that the norm was always that and that is the case. That's why the all of the Quran is always reminding the Muslims that your love has to be directed to the right group to the group that actually respects you sees you as equals whereas Toba people don't understand this. Quran is not telling Muslims to become less compassionate not at all the Quran is just explaining to Muslims where it becomes problematic if you do so, meaning if you don't know who to defend yourself from
protect yourself from not to be vulnerable within you're actually ruining your you're sabotaging your own your own country, your own nation, your own faith because because you're not protecting yourself appropriately. And the fact that Karina had to do that all the time meant that the the norm or the basis for all Muslims, what they were taught, we were taught to show off and that's what the Quran is the Quran talks about compassion and Rama Allah Muhammad Rahim that was repeated in the Quran all the time. That
As the baseline for all Muslims that we show compassion and love to everyone, and then the Quran comes and said, okay, but this group and discriminated, we have to be aware, you can't do that unconditionally. You can't do that without restrictions and these has to be the case. So that's an important new realization when you're reciting the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And this sutra is going to kind of point that out a little bit a bit clearer, more clearly. So what happened was when the Prophet alayhi salatu salam had the intention to go for a hamburger, some move a city in some some of the scholars of the fsid will point will say that this story happened when he was trying to
go for unbolted today via the Umbra that led to the Treaty of Saudi Arabia. So they differ on whether this story happened then or their, my my preference, or what I believe is more accurate is that this happened when the Prophet alayhi wa sallam had made the intention of going for fight to hammock meaning after they had broken the treaty
that they signed in her debut with the prophet Ali Asad Salman, they slaughtered a lot of Hosanna Bucher, which is with the one of the one of the tribes that were in alliance or had allegiance with Koresh and Kusa was a was was one of the tribes that had allegiance or light to the Prophet it so the Muslims and Bucher basically slaughtered the people of Hosanna, on their way to umbra, and they killed maybe a couple of dozen of them. Some of them were killed in the huddle, trying or trying to seek refuge when the Kaaba. So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said, okay, they broken the treaty. We now remove Abu Sufyan wanted to try and save the
save the day and he went to the medina to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and told them I want to renew the treaty. So we asked him, Well, why do you want to do the treaty? We already signed it? What's the point of renewing something that's mean sign unless you did something, did you do something that was done? Did you guys do something? And he said, No, nothing. Nothing was done. Are you sure nothing happened? What Why are you I mean, it's awkward that you're here. And you're asking to renew something that we just signed a year ago, and no one has broken their covenants yet. Unless you broke your covenant. That was a Fiat. Because what bucho did they did with the blessing of what
he said, Yeah, go ahead and slaughter who you want. He won't say anything will look the other way.
And he refused to renew the treaty. And that was if you have to go around begging a Lakota and Amarnath not an ally, if they would just you know, intervene or put their weight to renew the treaty. And then when that didn't work, he begs finally my lesson saying their children to do that. And no one listened to him and ended up going back to Mexico not being able to renew the treaty. The Pro valets was I knew why and so there was a few and they both understood what they were doing, but they didn't kind of articulate at the time, they brought about as I sort of made the intention of going to,
to Mac. Now, when he first found out about that, or his thoughts, I mean, how did he find out that Booker broke the covenant and colleagues broken covenant and slaughtered the people who are how you find out a man from from Koza his name was Ahmad bin Salim.
I'm live in Salem would make his way he would. He's one of the people who were actually amongst a group of Omura that were slaughtered but he made it out he didn't die. He got on his horse and he and he made his way to Medina. And he walked in to the Prophet audience on his message and he said poetry and afternoon are filled with et hood Giada De Bona Raka and was so Jeddah vessel rock Allah Who knows to run,
Makkah, whatever I don't know, I'm not very good at memorizing poetry. So he goes any and he gives us long poem and he explained to the private within it, what exactly happened, the private alleys aren't gonna upset and said, No, Saturday, I'm gonna be selling it, I will, you will be you'll be avenged, or I'm gonna be selling me your people. But he wasn't sitting alone. That day. He wasn't alone in the masjid. There was one more person sitting there. His name was Hartlaub, even Eddie belta, or the Allahu Anhu. From that one of the Sahaba, who fought in butter with him and his daughters ended in Sandakan, all of the times afterwards. And he was a son. He was one of the
prophet Isaiah saw to some zero soon, one of the messengers he would send to the different kings of the land, because he was bilingual. So we sent him to speak to kings and come back. So he was someone that was, who was trusted by the prophet Allah is also somebody who was close. So we heard the prophet as I said, keep this between us. No one knows about this, besides you and I, because I need to plan because he didn't want my kid to find out or courage to find out that he was going towards them. So that's basically what he did. He prepared himself. And he only let people know before he on the way out on the way out actually the whole time. It was what he what he had sent, or
he spread as a rumor that they were going for a thief and he was in another city
preparing an army because we can't fight him off and they were preparing it, but he wasn't going there. He's going to Mecca and then he changed last minute and because I haven't met are close together. Have you ever looked at the map and not that far away?
Hopefully what he did is that he sent a letter
or a small letter to What are you saying Mohammed is coming for you, basically. And he gives it to a lady who was visiting from Makkah. And Medina, she puts it between the
father of her hair, and she goes back to the
Next up, we'll come to the total portfolio. So what was sent a few people to this area, they'll find a lady, this is her name, have them retrieve a message that is of interest for you. So I saw two assembly call Allegan Zubayr. And the Martha do winery and you would tell them you go, you'll find out all about the house, which is the name of the area, you'll find the lady make sure you don't come back without the letter. So they go and they find her exactly where the profit is what I'm told and he told me give us the letter. She said I don't have a letter they said give us the letter or we or we or we take it from you. So you got scared and she she gave him the letter. And he goes, they
come back to the prophet as long as he takes the letter he doesn't read but he hadn't read.
He calls them Muslims he calls hottub. He takes one and he throws in his face is Mahadeo how to witness this
and how to observe them I had Alejandra Yasuda be patient with me also Rama, Rama I know Allah he will let you know that Dandini I did not commit apostasy. I didn't leave my Deen when I can Nero Julian Musa can be Quraysh. You see, I'm not actually from coalitional. I, I was asleep was freed and I'm stuck to them as a molar. Again, a social system that is too complicated for the purposes of this halacha for me to go through, so I'll leave it for now. But he didn't have like a family inclination didn't have like brothers and Yaniv and a father and uncles didn't have a tribe. Yes, he was. He was associated or affiliated with the tribe in Mecca, but wasn't really doesn't really
belong there. But a lot of his family members like his wife and his children, he was never able to take them out. We're still living there. And he was afraid that if the prophet Allah took an army towards Mecca, that the people of Quraysh would just look who are the families of the people who left who are Muslim and just slaughtered them all. And then he would lose his family. So he wanted to find a way to do something for Quraysh. So they would remember they wouldn't they wouldn't harm his family for it, but he was he wasn't trying to betray them because in his mind, whether they know he's coming or they don't know he's coming, they're gonna lose right at that point, the prophet
Allah, I saw him at an army of 10,000 people from all the tribes of Arabia they were way more powerful than Croatia was by far Croatia had nothing they didn't have an army left anymore they were very very weak in comparison to what he had so to help them it was like it doesn't make a difference like if they know where they don't know it won't make a difference really know that it wouldn't make a difference obviously because we'd be more bloodshed for sure. And that's the profit is on his goal is that he doesn't want to have doesn't want to witness bloodshed.
So he made he betrayed he performed an act of treason basically.
So after the after how to explain himself and said you know, this is why I didn't I didn't do it as an act of apostasy but he also Allah Maloney Akbar, Oklahoma, I'm gonna have to give me the word and I'll chop that the head off of this, this hypocrites for God and Muhammad, the Prophet alayhi salam replied Be quiet Yama, Nicoletta de because you don't know that Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Allah. Allah, Allah is humble is not a mash up of her tillikum. What do you know, maybe Allah looked at the people of Buddha and told them go do whatever you want to do, I will always forgive you.
And that phrasing from the Prophet Elise also means that's what happened, that Allah subhanaw taala looked at the people about them and said, what you've done is of such value. Now I don't want to
distract from the purpose of the story, the way that's narrated in the Quran, by talking about something that's not really what the story in the Quran is talking about here. But it is something worthy of your contemplation. That the way it works in many senses for this, for the sake of arguing it in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala is that if you do something that is very, very valuable, that is really important, if you carry a burden that no one else was willing to carry at a time where it was really needed. That's your ticket. That's your ticket for salvation. That's your ticket for forgiveness. And that works for everyone. The people have been told that was a hard day, that was a
harsh moments, or those were harsh moments in general, they're very few people never had the authority of Polish ever been been challenged in Arabia before. Especially not by an army that was a third of the one that was marching, especially not by a bunch of people who were not fully trained yet and had no artillery and didn't really have a proper set. That wasn't what they're trying to do. So to stand your ground that day was a really important thing. It was very hard to do. It's very scary. And it had a huge impact on what Islam turned out to be. So it was very, very valuable. So because health it was amongst the people who did this is sin was forgiven.
The example I always give is Musen Yunus. I need him a salatu. Salam Musa one point God set. So he was carrying the Torah in his hand. So he took it
and he slammed it on the ground, he threw it on the ground. And he went on, he took his older brother by his beard, and he and he pulled him by his beard and by the hair of his head, and he started yelling at him. An action that you wouldn't probably accept from your own Imam if I threw the client on the ground, that would be the end of me.
That's how I would retire basically, from doing all this.
The total it was the total that was a total of those 10 commandments that were the first revelation of the total to the to Musa Elisa. But we see no evidence of the Quran of him being chastised for it or called out for it, or any form of punishment at all, nothing. It's not even taught, even though it's pointed out a couple of times in the Quran not once is it pointed out that maybe you shouldn't have done that, not even once, you will realize that I'm left as people not because he, he left them out of out of anger for their sake, but he was upset that they had brought themselves to the point where I was going to punish them. So he left it as if it frustrated with them, not hating them, he
just frustrated with them that they done that to themselves. And he had to he was punished in the belly of the whale. So why this person like that, but because because you notice didn't stand in front of it. That's why
because you and us did not stand in front of Musa did. Musa did something very difficult. If that makes sense. You have to find that in your life, you have to find the one thing that you you're going to find the burden, the load that you're going to carry, that no one else is willing to do. The difficult work that no one wants to do this thing that you bring to Allah subhanaw taala say, This is what I did. Yeah, I made a lot of mistakes. My Salah wasn't great, I didn't really do. Like I'm not I'm not a great person. But I but I performed this one deed for your sake. And it was really hard and I dedicated my life to it. And that's that's a valuable thing to have helped. I've had it.
So he was saved. Otherwise health of his head would have flown off with almost sword pretty quickly that day for doing this as others did. But because Haltom had stood there on the day, but he was pardoned was pardoned. So think what is it that you can do so that you get pardoned to? What does that I'm going to do where I can find myself saying I didn't do much I did this. Hopefully this is asking me something that benefits others by the way, it can't be something that you do only for yourself. It has to be something in it for the Ummah, the nation has to benefit from what you do you have to do something that you intended to benefit the home of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam
anyways, so that's the story.
So Allah subhanaw taala after this story would reveal the beginning of soaking up Dana.
And you point out where how they've made mistakes, and how he should have behaved and how the Muslims should behave about this issue and I'll recite them was like, recite the first verse.
Then we'll talk Michelle about the the meanings and I will be Lahaina shape on your Waje
Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim
Yeah, uh you Hello loving man. Hola, Turkey do I do we what do we work on a really
good so this is a long either, so we're gonna I'm gonna I'm not gonna do the repetitions. Like I'm not gonna recite it the way you would recite it if you were doing a hokhmah of the Quran or reciting of Surah just to make it easier for you will also take us like 15 minutes to get through it. So I'll just stop and continue the word after even though when it comes to the Afghan block for liberty that in the rulings of stopping and restarting a citation within a verse, there's a lot of there's a lot of rulings there and there's a lot of linguistic rules that you have to follow. I'm not gonna I'm not gonna bore you with them here today. So and we're not going to follow them specifically. It
doesn't really affect our ability to understand things because we're not stopping in the middle of the verse anywhere. I'm just letting you know that that that is a ruling that's important to Pune la him Bill Maher. What the
well, for the CAFA Ruby magia ACOEM Meenal hello

I may if I looming Papadopoulos,
So let's go through what this verse means salong one is an important one. Oh, those who believe that definitely though I do we want to do welcome. Don't take your enemy and my enemy because he's differentiating here between having a personal enemy versus having an enemy, enemy of the nation of the ummah of Islam. And it's a very important distinction that he's adding here. So ponder with it, because you can have enemies, you can have your own enemies in life. And that's not just these things happen in Muslims, as groups as smaller groups within the Ummah, Muhammad Allah Who salatu salam can can be enemies, but they're not enemies of Allah subhana wa Tada. So these but what this
verse does not apply to that we're talking about the enemy of the Muslims in general, meaning those who and what what defines animosity is going to be talked about in verse number eight to nine. So I'm not going to wait until then, because I need you understand it now. But you'll see, it's when people, your enemy are the ones who don't believe that you have the right to believe in what you believe in, they don't believe in your freedom of religion, and they don't believe in your freedom of speech. And they don't believe in your freedom or your the sanctity of your life, or the sanctity of the place that you live in. Meaning they're willing to displace you willing to kill you are
willing to take away your right to believe in whatever you believe in that is, that is what defines animosity of Muslims within the Quran. So he says that definitely do I do we want to do welcome, don't take your enemy and mine
are my enemy and yours I do we want to do welcome. So they understand that he's talking about and about specifically about these groups of people. Now, you're not talking about a neighbor who you know, throws garbage in front of your house, or a neighbor who
slanders you or puts up a flag just to spite you know, I'm not talking about that. So I want an actual act of oppression, taking away your fundamental rights as a human being and happening on a nation basis, not on a individual basis within a country within a country that you can't you can't call anyone who's living with you in the country I do we I do Allah or I do, but it doesn't work that way. It's either they're breaking the law or they're not breaking the law, then you go through the proper channels to have them punished for what they did. But you can't use this, it's important to understand where these verses are going to be used, so that you can practice them appropriately.
Because if you practice them outside of context out of context, then you know they're not, it's not going to work out very well.
So don't take my enemy in yours, explaining that only don't take them as alliances, right.
Or don't build allegiances with them, they're not your allies, don't take them as allies, they're not your allies, don't look for them to support you in what it is that you want to be supported with, don't try to build that alliance with them. If they are very clear on the fact that you don't have the right to believe in what you believe in, or to live where you live or the sanctity of your life, then you should not take them as allies. This is what Quraysh basically was telling the Muslims and telling the Arabs around the Muslims, that they were mean they are they need to be removed. This was the narrative that they have to be removed, the Muslims cannot be there, we have
to get rid of them. Either we get rid of them, they go live somewhere else, or we slaughter all of them, which is why they brought 10,000 Confederates trying to completely end the whole story. They want to get rid of him. That was a that was their goal. So it's kind of weird that Allah was I gotta have to say that right?
Isn't it? Why would you need to say that kind of goes without saying this is your enemy that does not believe in your rights to believe in your right to freedom of religion or freedom of speech? Or the sanctity of your life or the place that you live in? Why would you even consider taking them as allies? Because like I said, the baseline for Muslims was that no, we always extend our handout. We're always trying to build alliances, we're always trying to make friends with those around us, we're always trying to look for ways to get along with people that is the baseline the baseline is a baseline of compassion, it's a baseline of love. It's a baseline of working with others, so the
client has to come and point out where you shouldn't do it and it's and the idea here is not the opposite it's not the baseline is hatred and blood any hunger and then the plan is gonna say no you need to show you to show Yanni
you have to show compassion and no it's not that's not the case it's the opposite the baseline is that this other Muslims function, and then they have to be told no you need to you need here you have to stand your you can't do that that's gonna harm you. That's important to understand. Because if you don't understand that piece, then these verses may sound different to you or you may comprehend them differently.
And then explains what he means by taking them as allies to own lay him build my word. Worker the cover will be major, a communal help your original Rasulullah er come and took me no biller here on Pico. So all this is an explanation to an owner in America is when you throw some
Something else I'm going to go into in a minute whether you're throwing your love at them.
Now, this is a really interesting term. Because love MOA does love right or so. So love should be exchanged or it should be mutually expressed, or it should be shared. But I'm sure that you've been in situations where you are throwing your love at someone and the they let it fall to the ground, they did not respect it, they are not treated appropriately, they may you were vulnerable, you put yourself out there and you gave love and they did not treat it the way they did, they abused it, they misused it, they did not show any signs of valuing what you actually did, which is very difficult to recover from, by the way, it is very hard to recover. When you do that when you put
yourself out there and the person in front of you spits at it or, or neglected or ignores it or miss treats what it actually is, and this is the term use, you're gonna either him or this like you're, you're throwing your love at them hoping that they they'll appreciate that and that they'll show you love back and they won't, because they never showed you love to begin with her and Allah in the Quran, I'm giving you evidence of how this is a common practice of Muslims because that's what Islam is about her into that into a boon at home. While you're gonna come here you are showing them love and they don't show you any love. They don't love you, but took me no one ability to adequately and
you believe in the book of Allah in full well either Allah who compiled Amen. And when they show it with a cut, when you meet them, they say, Yeah, we're on your side, well, either Hello, I'll do it.
Right and the moment they walk away from you, they bite down on their hands and hatred towards you hoping that you all die, is what the Quran is explaining that you have to be careful of showing love to those who have giving love to those who aren't going to be aren't mutually going to show it back. Again, this is not this verse is not talking about the social examples of that. So if you're thinking of a social example, that's not what he's talking about here. He's talking about, again, dealing with the state, the enemies of the state enemies of the nation, those who don't believe in your right to live your right to be a Muslim. But he uses that term, because that's a very, again,
it's a very popular and appropriate term. You can you can draw parallels to your own life because we've all done that at one point where we've showed someone a lot of love, we really pursued and then they didn't do it. They didn't buy it and it hurts it hurts because you feel like I really kind of burnt myself there and they didn't they didn't they showed no interest to the owner, a beloved worker the gaffer will be manager a communal help and they have shown their intention of not ever accepting anything of any of the truth that has come to you but capital they have disbelieved the manager and everything that has come to him and a half from the truth from Allah Ukri Jr. was sued
over a year ago here's the problem, and they have removed the Prophet and yourselves from your hopes you could do now was a year ago. Why and took me know Billa Hill have become because you believed in Allah your Lord, it was best based on the fact that you had a different belief than they did. So they decided to displace you remove you from your land.
Allah subhanho, wa, Taala and assorted on tahina is making an argument for Muslims to not shower those who
removed them from their land
and displace them, because they didn't believe they had the right to have freedom of religion. He asked to make an argument of why they shouldn't. The Muslim shouldn't shower them with love.
And just adding Allah is making an argument for Muslims don't shower those who kicked you out of your land because you believe something different with love. Don't shower them with love, that's
because they were
this verse was revealed when he did the action, but it wasn't talking about how them specifically as you can see the versus the versus using the plural term. And talking about the story, whenever there's a story that happened, it was a person, it comes in and talks about a specific issue, you find that that singular usage for the mistake that was happened you look you you would draw an analogy from it, you deduct it the yes and for all of us. But in this area, it came every aspect of the pieces of advice was plural, because it wasn't just helpful who was doing this? It wasn't just how to do scent that no no, all the Muslims. Were doing it on different levels in different ways.
Because that's what he taught them how to use.
The teachings that they got for her money Assad was Saddam was to love others, to wish to hope that they find guidance, to show them compassion and try to get them on your side and never ever give up your Dawa always hope that it will work out. So they had to be brought back to a baseline of no not the ones who are displacing you and depriving you your right to live and to be most of them, not those ones, not the combative ones. You can't do that with the competitive ones. That is how you you ruin your nation. That is how you end up with nothing at the end. So you have to be smarter than that, at least regarding this example.
Because that's the baseline of what it means to be a Muslim. It's very unfortunate that somehow we figured out a way to to make it seem as if Muslims are different than that, meaning that we
The under default level or in a default manner, don't get along with others that we don't wish for hire for them. We don't show them compassion that the Quran is
Allah is making an argument he has to give a command. Don't take them as allies. They have displaced you, they have kicked you out. They don't see any right for you, and you're showering them with love, and they're not giving you anything in return. Don't take them as allies. I don't think what example of life do you need someone to remind you not to make that person your ally?
Where do you need someone to tell you that the person that kicked you out of your land and told you that you don't deserve to live or deserve to be anything? Where you're showing them love? Where is it that you need to be? How is it that you need to be reminded don't take them as your ally? Unless Unless there's a I want to say almost pathological problem of compassion. Oh, if there's a little bit too much of it, and you have to know that you have to cut it down a bit yucky that they don't believe that you have the right to be any you have to you have to you have to hold back on it when it comes to this example.
And then you make it want to make an argument that Muslims are blood hungry I again you just people don't read the Quran. They don't want to go to LA him. Don't call you throwing your love Boyd MacArthur will be my document and helping you through June of last year ago, they removed you why and took me to be law hero because just because you showed a belief that they didn't have you believed in what you're learning they don't. In quantum College, don't Jihad and FISA really well, but if I'm at a party, so he adds a condition. He says, don't take them your allies, after you explain like who what allies menten. And why. If you've truly once you left your country when you
were removed and displace you left and in your hearts you had left with the intention of striving for my sake, and looking for my compassion and pleasure. Because you had done feasibility you left to stretch you had this is Dr. V. Said meeting me on my path. Well, Bettina, Amaravati observa, meaning you're seeking something modality is ALLAH SubhanA. Allah is ALLAH SubhanA satisfaction. So if you left your your if when you were displaced, you left and your intention was that you were going to strive on my path and seek my satisfaction than don't take these people as allies. He had to also bring his weight in subhanho wa taala, to convince the Muslims not to show the people who
tried to kill them and continue to try to kill them and take away their rights not to show them love.
That's what being a Muslim was like.
That is what they learned from him Allah has taught us about
this is the level of compassion they have learned from him.
So the Quran let me say, you know, if you truly believe in Allah, if you truly want to please Allah, if you truly strive for him, you have to cut it off at this. This is where it ends, know the people who don't believe in your rights to live and be Muslim. You can and displaced you openly, they kicked you out of your country, you don't shower them with love, you hold that back,
doesn't say go after their,
their children or just don't show it. Don't make them your allies, you don't make them rallies, it's not appropriate for you to do that.
It's a very, my opinion is extremely powerful, like the context of what's being said is extremely powerful, if you understand it, because it tells a lot, it tells us a lot about who we are. And it's tells us a lot of what the court is trying to establish because you're not protected. If you do, you're not being wise and you're protecting yourself if you don't know, if you don't know where to draw a line. This is the example of nations amongst each other. It's also the same example you would find on an individual level. People who don't respect you, people who abuse you and mistreat you and you don't shower them with it. That's no you have to be smarter than that you have to be able to
take a step back. You have to be hold that back because it's not fair for you as a human being if the person in front of you does not see or right does not respect you or see the right you're right to to be independent or to be your own person then you shouldn't you should not shower them with love at least because that's
that's just not appropriate. But we but when you look at how people live you know you don't understand why this would be a commandment in the Quran.
The ad goes on a little bit to describe what the Muslims are doing. I would have enough for me to end their mental he goes a bit farther to seal Runa la Him beloved.
You secretly have your hearts filled with love for them. To see Runa la inbuild Muhammad wa Alamo Bhima a kratom mama Island and I know what you hide away you don't and what you make public publicly you can hold those as I know there are enemies and we will fight them but deep inside you you have a lot of love for them
to serve you. This is what the Muslims are like. There are people who yes they were our enemies but deep inside we would love for that we love them we want them to become Muslim want to be better to see Luna Iliyan beloved one Allah movie Murphy to mama island to another understanding of this area actually, is to seal Runa la him you give them information secretively based
On love when you shouldn't have, which is the which is referring to the mistake of how I mean I'd be belta and mistakes and a few others that didn't go public. Meaning a few other people did this
as well. It just didn't go public it was caught early on in the Prophet Allah is also out of the intention of SR did not make it. We don't know the names you don't know exactly what it did to seal Rona la him you're secretly Yanni offering them information giving them secrets out of love Villanova with a base of love when you shouldn't do that, why now I love the MMA fighter mama Island to him and Allah saying and I know that which you have concealed and that which you have revealed and made public. So I'm watching stop doing this. Well, maybe if I looming I mean those who continue to do this, but call the Ebola. So as severe they have well is from Ebola is when you go astray, or
when you lose your path. But the bolus, our SMS our Sabine is a sower meaning is the equilibrium. And so what is the path mean? The equilibrium path, the path that is incorruptible or straight, many of you've got a straight from the straight path by doing that.
And that's what he talks about out here. You need to protect yourself, you have to make sure that you don't shower with love those and make them allies, those who don't believe that you have the right to live. This is the basis of any relationship that exists between Muslims and non Muslims alike if you and honestly again, if you just read this verse, you would understand exactly what it is that we're required to do. And that sort of, but to sort of go on and on and explain things to make it crystal clear how it is that we as Muslims even forget about like the Western world, and how they play their propaganda during the early 2000s. And maybe a little bit afterwards as Muslims, how
we lost our way and understanding our own faith meaning, because here's the problem with what happened after 2001. And it started before that, I'll be quite honest with you started before that, but for sure, hit his peak right after 911. And he told what 2020 Oh, my God, I was 20 I was gonna say 12 years, it's 22 years ago. What happened at that point is that not only did they they sent, did they
broadcast this to the world, to the world believed it? No, no, the actual problem was that the Muslims believed it. The problem was that the Muslims believed that this is this was the problem is that the Muslims started to believe that your faith is is blood hungry, our faith is is based in its essence on wanting to fight everybody and kill everybody and remove them. And they start to believe and feel ashamed of their faith and and try to find something that would defend it. Because they don't know what their own Quran because they haven't read their book, they don't know what it's explaining it to you understand the context of anything that's being talked about. Anyone can cut
and paste something and slap it on a on a slide or send it in a message or put it on TV and everyone will believe it's including Muslims. And that was that that was the biggest loss. That was the last that was the real loss. Everything else doesn't matter. What people believe doesn't really matter that much is what we ended up believing is how we became uncomfortable when the word judge was used. It's how we became uncomfortable when we talked about Muslims relationships with non Muslims. I have yet to give this talk on this sort of once and start out and say this is the relationship with Muslims and non Muslims not see people uncomfortable even today. I have yet to do it not see
visibly, people feeling uncomfortable that this is what we're going to be talking about. This has sort of always been the least attended amongst this series that I ended up doing. Because people there's that feeling, what is he gonna say is and you say something? What do you think I'm gonna say? What do you think I'm going to say? If you think anything else that what you're hearing right now is you don't hold your deen properly. And no one with a straight mind will secrecy anything else? And that's the problem that we still have that doubt. What did he really say? But what if he does?
It's like when the only people come here and they're snooping around. And I joke with him and say no, come on in. You can see where we only have one room that plans building bombs, the rest are all kinds of cool, totally kosher. But if it's just one roommate, you're welcome to What do you think we're doing here? What do you think we're doing? What do you think happens? Do you think Muslims come and do
Subhanallah we've allowed the lie to penetrate. We've allowed the lie to penetrate into our own hearts and minds and souls and we've accepted in this very sad. Well, it is i I'm saying this because I deal with younger people. So you can't you know, I'm saying this is a fact. It is not an opinion. This is a fact. I deal with younger people and they reflect genuinely, sincerely with almost no filter, no political correctness what they feel about their deen and I listened to that. That's my job. And that's what they that's what they believe that's our problem is their problem. This is what they were led to believe. They believe it from the environment of their own homes. They
were allowed to believe that and feel that Yeah, you don't talk about this part of his time because it's a little bit messed up. Or you know, we don't know what's gonna because they don't know. People are scared of doing the seals with the Tober Well, why
should I tell the story? Well, I don't know if I should tell the story. I feel like some people get upset. I was asked not enough serious
So 10 years ago in the city,
I was asked not interested that story, because I was telling them, I'm gonna do this to the Quran I love this is what I love doing. They asked me not to do that sort of 10 years ago. Like, what do you why? Why do you think?
What do you think I was like? What? Are you insane? Have you not read this sort of yourself? What did you read? Like what have you read it. So the dove is the Most Merciful surah. In the Quran, it's called Tau was called repentance. The strength in it is, it's just it's contextual, you have to just understand, once you understand the context, it's a sutra that is convincing Muslims to be extremely compassionate with the people who continue to betray them. But to draw the line so that no more Muslim lives, innocent lives are, there's no more bloodshed within their own nation Subhanallah
this is this is the reality of what we are dealing with. He either made a case subhanaw taala, bringing in the weight of his satisfaction, and striving for his sake, to convince the Muslims to stop showering their enemies with love the ones who not only completely disagree with their rights, to have freedom of religion, but displace them physically from their homes and continue to advocate for that. And you have to point out you are secretly still showing them love, you should stop doing that, because that is not healthy for you. It's not healthy for you to give love to someone who wants you dead, or wants you to be mistreated or to be oppressed, or to be persecuted or not to have
the right to live that's not healthy. There's something wrong with you have to get rid of that piece. Yes, be passionate, but not that compassionate. That's no longer compassion. That's problem. That's what this is saying. Just hold that back. It doesn't, it doesn't come and say you need to go and kill them. No, just stop showering them with love. Don't make them your allies just don't have. I don't continue to pursue alliances with them. Because it doesn't matter to you.
I cannot I dare you to find scripture, not religious scripture, political scripture. Thanks is even remotely close to this. I dare you to go to find go find a political statement in the past or present that uses this rhetoric when talking to their own people regarding their sworn enemies.
You won't you will not find anything that comes even remotely close to this. And yet you're going to call this Diem.
Blood hungry and the Muslims that? Yes, yeah. And then you got us to believe it too. So we have to defend ourselves all the time, you have to feel like your backdrop backs against the ropes and you're taking the punches, and you have to run away from certain words, and you'll be fully contract on certain things. And
How would that happen? Well, I mean, there are reasons for it. But
we have to get out of that mentality, we got to break loose, we have to break through the shell
of that weakness of that, you know, the feeling less of feeling targeted a feeling that we have to explain ourselves, we aren't Oh, we are we have to justify why we are what we are, we have to you have to break away from that you have to get away from it. The younger generation is actually the reason I have a little bit of hope is that the younger, the younger group are much more confident in who they are. They're much more brave, they're not like me, but I'm still like that, I will probably die like that I'm not going to change at this point. It's too late, like this too long for me to figure out how to get out of it. But the younger generation are much better. They're much braver,
and much more courageous, much more confident in who they are. But we have to make sure that we continue to advocate for that to be the case. I mean, you have to make sure that we help empower them to carry that in their hearts, in their minds in their lives. So that they can be ambassadors of the faith without feeling that they have something to defend or something to justify something to explain or feel like they are being questioned in terms of their identity, the way most of us were,
I felt that not even here. I grew up in Danny,
if you might tell him a movie, and Michelle, and I felt it. I grew up in the midst of the heart of the Muslim world. And I felt I felt the same thing. And many people who lived in that part of the world will tell you that. So
we protect the next generation from that effect, because you just have to read this load. Just read what he's saying and understand it and you'll be left with a conclusion that this doesn't make any sense unless the background is this. This is the background the background are people who had an excess of compassion and love towards those who showed them animosity. We had an excess of it. They had to be told to cut it back a bit so that they wouldn't harm themselves. We continue on number two and three. He is awful. Camilla Kuno like the

It's a this is a third time he's used the word mawatha so far and the first two verses of this of this sutra he talked about going out elating beloved that you're showering them with love when they're they clearly don't have any intention of wanting you to have the right to live to see a Rona Elysian beloved and some of you are giving them love secretively just hold in your heart. What do they want?
Well, what do them what they love, low tech fortune, if you would just lose your faith. They want you they just won't want you to continue to be Muslim. They don't want you to continue to have your faith anymore. They want you to lose it somehow. And they'll do whatever they have to do if they have the upper hand they will show their animosity and they will extend they'll extend their their power and their words to harm you hoping that you finally lose your faith and you lose but you've got
again, he's just making a case of Pinilla Tata, why they have to stop showering them with love. The 51st verses of Stuart remove Dinah is just Allah subhanaw taala explained to them Muslims, why they should not shower with love the people who don't see them to have rights. That's it. The third one lender on fire calm or Hong Kong, Walla Walla, and even if they're related to you, that though that those blood relations, and even if these people are your children, the fact that this relationship of having a child or a parent, lengthened family will not benefit you. Yo multiparameter Yasuo Baytech on the Day of Judgment, Allah Subhana Allah will
clearly differentiate between all of you, not based on blood, not based on family relations, not not based not based on any of that. Your pseudo being based on
what you did with your life, what you believed in, and what rights you allowed others that's how it's going to be. So show them whatever love you want. If they don't believe in your fundamental rights of being Muslim and living in your land, then that won't help them. And it won't help you either. On the Day of Judgement, Allah will hold everyone accountable, differentiate Allah who be my Tama Luna, they'll see you and Allah subhanaw taala is watching all that you do. You use the word bill, see it here Subhana wa Tada.
Because when it comes to taking allies, so if you use the word Kabir it would, it's really Subhanallah the the the degree of accuracy sometimes if you use the word Kabir would go against all of my arguments, everything that I'm saying it would go against it by saying he's saying because maybe it is used to
To point out, Allah has knowledge of that which is unseen. With his use in the heart, he is not interested in you becoming a savage inside. He doesn't want you to hate people on the inside. He just wants you to shop to stop shop with chakra and people with love physically, those who don't believe in your race, don't do it openly. So he says, We'll see it, I'm seeing what you're doing. Stop doing it openly. If he says to me that he's also pointing out, don't have it on the inside, but he doesn't want you to lose what's on the inside. He just wants you to stop doing what's apparent, too much open. Because that piece is problematic. Because that piece if you're taking if you're
drawing, if you're taking an eye, like someone who does not believe in your fundamental rights, and you're showing them love, that's a problem that is going to ruin your state ruin your nation that is going to lead to your demise. So he pointed out we'll see you too, because he's talking about actions that are visible actions that are physical. He doesn't care here he's not interested in telling you you need to lose the love inside of your heart knows he does use computer understand. This is the degree of accuracy that he uses subhanaw taala. Because you can say well, what about the stuff that are unseen? He's not talking about the unseen stuff. No, we'll continue to have that of
course he's supposed to have that isn't already did not install to send the neighborhood. He's bleeding from from his head in his face. Hamza just just died. Most of us died. You're talking about great names people that the prophet Isaiah salatu salam considered as his as his right or right hands on at your slotless and they just passed away. It's a very bad day. He puts his hands up and they thought that because he asked him make dua against the big draw against the middle of war in the middle of war.
Middle of war no, this is not gonna be some preparation. This is in the battle in the midst of a of a couple of our battle in the midst of it. They tell him to make dua against them. So he says Allahumma ferronickel me or
forgive them. And another narration Aloma had called me oh god, Oh Allah, guide them. When the Himalaya Alamo they don't know what they're doing. They're ignorant if they knew what they were doing, they wouldn't have done this. If they had any knowledge they would not have done what they have done, but they don't so
this is who they learned from. So Allah Hi Sam, Sam, this is how he was. He was of that nature. He he always gave a second chance always hoping that he could save someone from from punishment after the day but when he goes on a tsunami sees the bodies of Akbar Robbie on
Abuja, hell will hack him. Even he showed me he stands on in front of them, he starts to speak to them.
Tomorrow, did you find what I what I told you was the truth to be the truth. He's talking to them with bitterness. Use bitter. He's a bitter why why did why did you bring it to this? And the Sahaba Ceylon Allah, you're talking to them. They're dead, UCLA. And don't be Esma or Lehman home? You don't hear me more than they do right now. They hear me. They're hearing what I'm saying. And he's asking why why this didn't have to be the case. You could have done things differently. This is what he was. This is how he lived on his soul. This
is what he taught them. So the IRS had to come and say all right.
when people are depriving your basic rights, you have to hold back a little bit. You have to hold back showering them with love. You can't take them as allies. Just that.
This is what firstly, verses I am not trying to be I'm not trying to run the clock here. I honestly don't think I think you have to take some time to think about this. Because if you don't, if you fully appreciate it, but this was you wouldn't be as as in awe as I am. Even though this is my 15th time I've explained these verses. Yeah. They're just very, they're mind boggling. Because I don't understand what mentality would allow this verse to exist. I can't imagine it in myself if I tried to think to be like that. I can't be like that. I can't be in a position where this verse would be relevant to me. I can't imagine myself in a position where my enemy, the person who does not believe
in my freedom of religion, displease me from my land, I can't believe I find myself in a position where I still wish good on them. Forget about showering them with love. I don't wish good on them. I can't see myself in a position where Allah has to tell me stop showing them love.
I just can't see that.
I can put myself in a mental state where that's the case, no matter how much I stretch it about how much I lie to myself. No, no, I could be that good. Thanks. Sorry, actually convincing myself that I'm not that good. I'm not that good. I'm not even close to that good. I won't even come remotely close to that.
But for Allah subhanaw taala to make this argument with the Sahaba saying something about the nature of these human beings. This is how they were. They weren't out for blood. And the moment someone who showed that they were out for blood, they got rid of them. And most of them weren't allowed to speak that way. On the way into attached to this story with the entered from Makkah.
The Prophet Allah you saw some had carrying the banner that day a man called Saddam and Obata and he was one of the head of husbands the largest of the two tribes, or the larger of the two tribes of Medina.
If he was carrying the banner and entering Mecca that day, he would see a yo yo man Mel hammer, a yo yo the Lula who for Asia. Today is the day of blood. Today Allah will humiliate place of the Prophet alayhi salam stopped the whole army. And he took the banner away from solid.
Publicly it was very humiliating for this gentleman who stood by the Prophet alayhi salam, and every single he was there for about an hour he was there for a while he was there for 100 He was actually quite instrumental sites even inside of Nova, a great Sahabi only Allah who I knew very instrumental many times, but that day he said something that was not reflective of the mentality of Muslims. So he took away the banner and he gave it to his son face him inside of an Obama not to break his heart. And he said in Yom Yom and Mohammed, Al yo mu is Allah Who Croatia, there is a day of mercy. Today, Allah subhanaw taala will grant high status to the people of Croatia. Why because they'll
finally accept this and that will only benefit them. It'll only benefit them, except this time you're going to be harmed by that. No, you'll only benefit. You'll only find benefits if you accept the Word of Allah subhanaw taala you're the one who benefits first before anyone else will.
But that's the mentality that he taught us salatu salam, when he saw when there were people who were showing him animosity, he continued to hope that they would do better. During those first couple of years, you had Bucha Hill and Amara Macapa extremely aggressive, very aggressive towards the Malaya Swati was extremely aggressive harming him on a daily basis persecuting him and his family members and the people who believed in him at all he would say Allah whom isn't Islam, nine oh, Allah grant Islam strength was one of the dormers hoping that one of them would accept hoping that some of them would find Islam accept Islam. And of course they did, or at least one of them did. Me change the
It's through that mentality that Islam became what it was. It's through that mantra that mentality was never lost. Muslims have never been anything else. Don't. Don't believe that you are anything else. You are never anything anything different. As a Muslim, you've always been like that. You've always been someone who
will lie. It's weird.
It's weird to see how much doubt the propaganda of the last 20 years have affected youth? How it made them think are we actually supposed to think this?
Think what am I suppose that allowed for me to hope to wish good people and in just a couple depressing is to get that question.
For someone to ask you that as a Muslim. Is it okay for me to hope that you know, we wish well upon others work with others try to benefit others make dua for them.
And you wonder what happened?
What happened? How did you? How did that? How does that question even exist for you? Of course, of course, you you should. Of course, we are people who who not only kind of want to hide for others, we will pursue it with all our might, we will do everything humanly possible to bring pleasure to other people, whether it comes in the form of a faith or any form, any form at all, whether it's just basic dunya benefits, we not only do wish it among people, we will work towards serving them to make sure they have it, whether they accept Islam or not, is not even a part of that equation to begin with.
Why? Because our Lord had to convince us historically, to stop showering our enemies who wanted us want the dead with love. That's why he had to make a case of three verses, bringing his own weight and get telling us what the consequences would be and how that will affect us in this life. And in the day after care. Number two, the effects in duniya. I remember see the effects in Alaska if you don't make the change. That's why
so we'll end with that in Charlottetown. I hope hope that you found that to be beneficial. We'll continue with a number for next week. So backlog hamdulillah Illa hidden and just talk to people to Lake wa sallahu wa Salam wa barakaatuh Muhammad earlier sabe
