Sunday Tafseer Halaqah
the organized the Muslim society or the Muslim country, if you may, I have to point this out just in case I haven't done this Halaqaat before, I can't remember if I did here or not. The Quran talks about Muslims with a context. It talks about Muslims in parts of in many parts with the context, that Muslims have some form of unified political representation. mean they work they live together in a country, that's what it assumes. So understanding that,
or if you if you don't understand that, then a lot of the verses that you read in the Quran may or may not make sense to you, because you don't understand that there's something being assumed here, that as a Muslim, with a large Muslim population, then you should be you should have your own political representation of your own country. That's not how all the Quran works. There are many teachers that doesn't assume that there are early many students that were that's still being built. But the lathe Minnesota has like this whole, just from Georgia to Tarim, all of them assume that there is a country that there is some form of unified representation. There's some centralization of
the Muslim community. And that's why the students talk about what they talk about, because that's being assumed there. We don't have that, which makes my job a little bit more tricky. To draw the parallels outside of it, like I have to explain the verses, the way they are assuming that there is a country that the Muslims live in, that is represented by Muslims, and then I have to extract and take analogically deduct certain rulings for you. Because we are a community that don't have that we we are a community, we're a minority in a non Muslim country, with no centralization almost at all. Again, this is not I'm not here, I'm not using that to put us down as most I'm just saying that
there's a difference between what is being talked about in these studios with the context with the framework, versus what we actually have. So there, you have to kind of draw some draw some parallels, and you have to kind of point out some of these distinctions. It's a little bit tricky, honestly, to do it, it's not easy. But I think that it's not gonna be I think, what ends up happening with people who don't know how to do that, and they read these sutras, they end up when you find extremism within the Muslim world, it comes from that it's coming from someone who reading, not understanding that there's a difference in terms of context and framework. And then they just
don't know how to draw these analogies and ends up taking them down a path of doing things that that does not represent what the Islamic faith actually is. So whenever you read the verses about combat, that is assuming those verses are assuming that there is a Muslim country, and that this is being addressed to the army, not to what a civilian living as a minority and another country to bear arms against, they're known that that doesn't that context and framework is not correct at all, you cannot drive
derive that conclusion, you can deduct that, that analogy that way, that makes sense to a lot of these verses have a framework and have a context that needs to be understood where else, you're not gonna know how to actually benefit from them, which is why don't see it is a very specific thing, in discipline. Not everyone should be performing to have seen and those who do should have certain skill sets that allow them to do that. To see and contemplation or reflection, are not the same thing. Again, one more just one more point for you to think about. You're you're required to contemplate and reflect upon the Quran, not to perform the seal of the Quran. They're not the same
thing. Reflection and contemplation happens after someone explains it to you, after you've had the verses explained to someone performing Tafseer, so you understand what they mean. And then you contemplate and reflect upon those meanings. They'll see it is different if see, it is what basically I'm doing for you, which is taking explaining to you what these verses mean, and offering you how it applies within the context of your life. And then what your job to do is to reflect on that contemplate that Think of what how that would work for you how that would affect you, which is the third dimension of benefiting from the Quran. The third dimension is how it affects you as a
person what it does for you. So don't mix them up. And people who don't seem to know the difference. They think that contemplation or reflection of the Quran, which is an obligation, by the way, you're all obligated to do that is equivalent to Tafseer. So they you know, they're writing notes and coming up with their own understandings. No, you can't, you can't do that. The only time you can perform time series if you have all these skill sets that are required, number one, a an extremely, an extremely exquisite comprehension of the Arabic language, something that you know, will take you 25 years to build. So that piece there is very important, which is why I think it's very important
for us to cherish the Arabic language for our youth make sure they learn it, regardless of their background, whether it whether it comes from an Arabic speaking background or not. They should learn Arabic is a very important thing. I am a champion that I care about that. I don't think that giving a hope but in Arabic is going to achieve that. I don't think that if I get a speaker
Arabic on the Joomla, that suddenly the children are gonna start understanding Arabic and speaking it, I just think that they'll get bored and feel that this is not something that they want to attend anymore. But we should definitely invest time and money in teaching them the language not because I want to have it's not a cultural thing, teaching them Arabic culture, it's about the Quran. Again, it's about the Quran. If it wasn't for the Quran, there was no need to ever know what Arabic was as a language or as a people even you're welcome to completely ignore the people and the culture. It doesn't. It's just about the language of the Quran itself, because it gives you firsthand
the firsthand experience of the word of Allah subhanaw taala, where else is a second hand or third hand experience? Not to say that that's a problem. There's nothing wrong with that.
But if we want to improve the status of our Ummah, want to improve the next generation, we should try and make sure that they have a better experience of it, they have a better connection and language is for sure.
The first step, obviously, you need to know many more disciplines within Islam,
and Hadith and felt,
amongst other disciplines that you need to master in order for you to be able to perform to see it and see it obviously in the history of the life of the prophet Alia Salatu Salam o needed.
So that's just a little bit of a backdrop so so as your tutor, which I did a first in this group talked about organizing relationships between Muslims within the Muslim community between Muslims within the Muslim community, individuals talked about the relationship with it between individuals, talked about spouses, we talked about people who are working together within Muslim leadership, the relationship with leadership, the relationship in terms of alliances between people went through all these different examples. So how show talks about citizenship talks about a country and the different groups and what it requires what it means to have to live in a country where there are
people who are not the same way, when you're living in terror, genius,
landscape of a country, the fabric of society is not all the same, then who are the different groups that you're dealing with, and what that what does that mean and who is removed and who isn't. And the sooner we start with the first group, the the group that is that was removed from citizenship, which are those who perform treason are those who betrayed or those who go again, who try to break the rules or the basic laws of what that country is built upon, then that's a good that should leave. And that should teach us something because it means something to us as Muslims, from the perspective of having a Muslim country, but it also tells us something about what we're supposed to
do as Muslims living in another country, where when you live here, you accept the laws of this country. That's why you live here. If you didn't, you couldn't live here, you can't live in a country where you refuse the laws
is that understand? You can't like it's not, it's not possible, being a citizen in the country means that you've accepted that the laws will apply to everyone, yourself included, and everyone else. And when it's not, that's when you actually rebel. And that's when you you know, you voiced concern, because it should, should be equal. So you can't live in a country and decide that you're not going to abide by the law of that country, as a Muslim Muslim doesn't allow you to do that. Because if you do that, then you're allowed to be removed, he then if you don't respect the law, then you leave, you leave. You don't have to agree with all the laws, that's noticed. I'm saying, but you have to
respect them, you have to abide by them.
I don't agree with all the laws of this country. But I abide by I live by them because I agreed to live here. Which also brings back another a whole other argument, well, if I don't should, I don't know that you should leave here. And if that's your choice, if you decide to live in a place or not, that's going to be a decision. That's a judgment call that you'll make. But if you do live in a place, then you have to respect the laws of that place. Alright, just to make sure that that's clear. So it's talked about citizenship, and it talks about the first group, those who betray, and they you need to be removed, they were slaughtered, and they were not imprisoned, they were removed,
or evicted. And then it talked about the financial system, which is the relationship within the country regarding the disadvantaged. Then it talks about the relationship between believers, specifically, it looked at refugees, those who come in from from the outside and the obligation of those who come in the obligation of those who are receiving them and the obligation of those who come later. And then it talked about another two groups, which is the group of people who are hypocrites, meaning those who don't necessarily believe in what this country is about. They don't necessarily push in that direction, but they're abiding by the laws, at least superficially, at
least superficially, they're not breaking any laws and the disbelievers those who are actually a part of the country that don't agree openly. They openly don't agree with what the country is doing. But they're still a part of that. The important piece of that no one aside from those who betrayed or expelled no one is removed. No one is told you're not a part of this anymore. And that's very important. The profit is awesome. That's how we live.
If you know the story of an Akula
which is the last group of lucky to have to be removed from Medina.
It was during the Battle of London the Battle of the Trench where their leader
kava Vanessa was being. And he basically lured by here even after being told by this man that you need to be tricky to open the gates so that the Confederates can come from the north as well. And that way Mohamed salah is the president and the Muslims will be will be basically annihilated because now he's going to they're going to, they can't cover the trench and the northern castles of Bunnicula gives us an entrance. It's not possible, they'll go loose. So we've tried to convince them to do it. Now the narration is what do you get this is from someone who was listening. You told him, I will lie. As you defeat FC fella, I can't find it on myself to do this. Oh Allah, He loves Raja
comb, ma Melanie, Allah hopefully at home, when he removed you, he's talking to you. And also when you guys were expelled, he didn't hold me accountable for your mistakes. Like it didn't change the way he dealt with me. Like he, it was the same. We weren't held, we weren't punished collectively for what it is that you did. He dealt with us normally as if we didn't. So I can't find myself to do this. And he kept on pushing him pushing him until he said, and this is happening while God is on. At the top of the walls of the castle. He's standing on the wall of a castle and is down there asking for permission. He's not opening the door for him. And he's convincing him that you need to
listen, I have I have Confederate 10,000 people, this is a done deal. And God was telling him not to do it in LA nocturnally I swear you're taking me to my desk by train. And of course he would kill you. Eventually God would cave and he would agree to do it. It wouldn't actually happen for a whole different set of reasons but he would betray and he would commit treason. That's really been removed as well.
But aside from that, these people were never removed. Evidence then whatever your theme were known to the Prophet Allah, you saw them by name. He passed those names over to fake a million that none of them were removed. None of them were expelled from the country. And there's gonna be a sort of specifically to talk about hypocrisy, and the problem of hypocrisy and the danger of it and how it is the the problem, it's the problem within the Muslim ummah is the problem is the existence of it, defining what it is, and the everlasting effect of it. And of course there are the photo there are people who don't believe at all will also live and none of these people were expelled and this is
important and understanding the Islamic theory of what it means for there to be a country and for that to be citizenship will continue reciting itself from where we left off last week, which is iOS 12 and read iOS 13.
This last piece where Allah Subhan Allah says Allah, Allah Allah Allah, Xena and thokku Jaco Luna Li Hua Annie Himalayas in a Kaffir, Roman l ki tabula and digital Mahajan, NAMA Ocho. So he's being totally so that you see how they built alliances how the hypocrites and the disbelievers they built alliances and hamburgers will tell their you know their brothers from the disbelievers, that if you are removed, we will leave with you and if you are fought, we will fight with you and if you need help, we will stand by you and all this other stuff and I after it says they know what to do what I have told you now they are lying to them, they will they will not leave once they are expelled they
will not and is it referring to the to the incident that was at the beginning of the surah which is the expelling of money, but in the leader who tried to assassinate the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and killed him and kill him.
Well, in the sorrow formula, you will learn about Otto Milan Salone. And if they are to stand by them, then they will get scared and run away. And the verses continued to describe this alliance that is being built between them when I 15. And between the disbelievers and there's a lot of learning points for us in Sharla from going through them so we'll start from number 13 And I'll point out a number of important lessons and Shawn I will be Lahaina shame on your Raji.
Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim

so he says subhanaw taala and tomb, a shed dura button for you. So do read him in Allah. Indeed you are. He's here referring to the Prophet Allah you saw to Islam and the Muslims, you are a shutdown robber, you cause them more fear or you are more of a source of fear to them robbers fear shed Dora here is not that you're more fearful of them, it's the opposite, you are more of a source of fear for them feel so do it to him in their chests, meaning in their hearts, mean Allah, then the fear that they have of Allah subhanaw taala himself, they fear you more than they fear Allah subhanaw taala. And this is pointing out, these are a bunch, these are a number of flaws or mistakes that
they made. May I point out to you yet again, that any group that is being critiqued in the Quran, I mean, the flaws and the mistakes should be pointed out is not for us to point at them and say, look at how know, they're there, so that you and I don't make the same mistakes. And that's really why these verses exist in the Quran, or else. They're just verses talking about a group of people who made certain mistakes and not for us to enjoy. Look at them. Look at what these people did look a lot better than nobody did look at what them would have cleaned did. And then we can feel better about ourselves. Because we didn't know the point is that these mistakes, you are very, it's very
easy for you to be subjected to these mistakes as well. So don't make these mistakes, don't do what they're doing.
Do not have in your heart. anyone whom you fear more about his fear than Allah subhanho wa Taala no one. If you're scared of anyone, it should be from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, not from any of his creation. That doesn't mean that you won't fear some of his creation, many of his creation, our sources of fear are worthy of being feared and revered. But they should not be revered or feared more than Allah subhanho wa Taala himself. And that's a really important point that doesn't present itself very often in life. But at a certain moment, it may do so. Meaning when you come to a moment, where you have to choose between doing something out of fear of someone that will anger Allah
subhanaw goes against what ALLAH SubhanA taught versus not doing it, because Allah subhanaw taala commanded to do not prohibited you from doing it, meaning you are fearful of your his punishment. And that is where that's where we are, we'll be stuck. That's where moments will come where you have to make that decision. Do you fear Allah subhanaw taala more? Or do you feel this person. And of course, for a while, you'll ask a couple of shields looking for fat to antecedently route around it, you may end up being lucky in the actual topic has some difference of opinion. So you have a little bit of leeway, and you may not. And the issue that you're stuck with is actually very clear cut
within the deen. And you have to make a decision whether you fear Allah subhanaw taala more versus you fear whatever it is that you're you're dealing with. And that's a very meaningful moment. Citizenship is not just about carrying the passport. It's also about the concept of belonging is what I talked about at the beginning of this sutra. So it talks about the idea of you belonging to something. Because I think being a part of something larger than you being a part of a group. Being able to be a part of a group requires certain things for Christ. First of all, you can't betray, which is what the sort of talks about at the beginning. It requires that you have empathy towards
the less advanced disadvantage and that you don't rig things in a way where they are at just continuing to be at a disadvantage moving forward, requires for you to have a lot of empathy and love and selflessness towards people who are similar to you and those who came before you. Not to have hatred in your hearts towards them, requires you to choose your alliances appropriately. It also requires you to have your your priorities straight, in order for us to belong appropriately to his to Allah subhanaw taala his nation, order for us to belong to the group that identifies as the servants of Allah subhanaw taala, the the OMA the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam with Muhammad,
then you can't really revere or be afraid of anyone more than you are of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. You can't be afraid of your boss more than Allah, you can't be afraid of the government more than Allah, you can't be afraid of anything honestly more than Allah subhanaw taala. And that's hard to do. Because once your livelihood is on the line or your citizenship is on the line, or your, your wealth or your your status, or your safety is on the line, it's hard, it's hard to say, it's not an easy thing, it's very difficult. It takes a lot of
I just got this amorphous principle, it's really the principle the the values have to be very clear to you, you have to have your values straight from Allah for a long period of time I've internalized these principles and values so that when you're put in this situation, you're able to make that decision or else you know, a lot of people just sell out at a certain moment we'll give up we'll give up a principle. They'll give up something Allah Subhan to explain explicitly said explicitly said that you don't do this, but out of fear of something else.
As you do it, and then you say maybe he'll forgive me and you're right inshallah he will. So that is not I'm not coming off as surely he will forgive you. But that was a big flaw. And to shed the Roberton feel so dirty him in Allah verse people to be more
for you to fear people more the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, by the way, you know what for, for for a split second thought in his mind about it so, when Allah subhanaw taala if the whole lady Allahu alayhi wa and I'm tylee MC Gallega xojo Attila are 215 F seeker, Mullah whom will be here with auction us for law one Daksha the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was told me you have to marry Xena. Xena was married to Zaytoven Hadith it was the prophet Allah you saw them adopted kid wasn't his kid, it was an adopted son. He divorced her because they couldn't get along for the life of them for two years, they could not make it work. And that's a whole different
story to tell. But Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran showed that he's on his agenda, he was marrying Xena and of course Xena. Well, the Allahu Anhu would become one of them, meaning that he was an extremely pious woman. And there's a good reason for why this story occurred. But when the Prophet alayhi salam saw that in his dream, he got very upset, because he didn't, he didn't really want to do it. Because he knew that if he married Xena, then the adult would walk around saying he married his son's daughter, even though his age is not his son. Biologically, his aid was not related to the Prophet it is taught to him at all. But for a while he was called to databind Mohammed because the
Prophet alayhi salam before Islam adopted him. And the other would do that if you if you adopted someone, and that person would carry your name mean they would act and function as if they were your blood, even though they weren't. And it's not because it No, no, no, you can adopt people and you can, you can treat them as if they're your children, but their lineage has to stay separate and there has to be clarity and there has to be honesty in people's backgrounds and their bloodlines. So that and of course, this command to the Prophet audience, to marry this lady was it was to kind of establish that but in his mind, he knew that this was going to be such a media, the propaganda that
was going to come with this was not never going to end people were going to be stuck. So he in his mind, he he feared that for a second. Right? And the Quran came and exposed it. Like out of all the things you had met this is something maybe they probably could have been told in private up you could have told him by the way you shouldn't have thought that the client has came in said it's what don't feed enough cecum Allah who will be in your in your hiding inside your heart that which Allah is going to expose? What duction nurse and you're fearing people will Allahu wa hochland Tasha and you should have only had fearfulness of Allah subhanho wa taala. The prophet Isaiah saw to Islam for
a split second and not for because he wanted to maintain his reputation though he was worried about the reputation of Islam. Like the reason he was fearful was a noble one. He was worried about what his actions affecting the reputation of Islam understanding.
He's worried about his action of affecting the reputation of the dean. He didn't want to be a reason for people to say something negative about Islam. And for a moment he just he was scared of what people were gonna say. And the client came in exposed it immediately No, you don't Salalah on your site.
So that means had he done it at any other point in his life, it would have been exposed as well. Had it happened in a meaningful way it would have been exposed as well there's the only time it's there understand the point of it. So the reason that is in the Quran, Allah saying look, the moment he makes the smallest judgment call that is not perfect I expose it if Allah Who unclean I didn't tell him I must say whatever immediately only for us to know that he didn't do it any other time in his life on to yourself because imagine this this character imagined this is not possible. This is not possible if you don't appreciate this then you don't you don't even you don't know who he is on it.
Your thought was that anytime the slightest deviation from what was what is considered the perfect judgment call happens immediately comes from the Quran. I can't imagine what he thought when imagine him sitting there on a saucer and you've been coming and saying I have Poron for you today. Alright, go ahead, get up. What is the cooloola the Allahu Allah you and I'm telling you, I'm sick. Alika JoJo watercolour, we're to see if enough cecum Allah who moved here he was duction nurse and he's sitting there allow your soul to say I'm hearing these verses.
Maybe turning this up, bro and you anyway this may be just this one Dakota Aisha loca and that was sudo Allah He Morphe and che a miracle.
If the Prophet Allah is always going to hide anything in the Quran, he would have hidden this piece here
would have hidden these ones but he didn't obviously, that's not what he would do.
But I'm trying to explain it to you. You should not have reverence or fear in your heart to anyone but ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada
especially when the comparison happens, especially when the fearfulness of doing something that would anger Allah either goes against his teaching is put up against anything else. Okay, this is this should be clear cut. But for them the interim Assura button for us to do Reymond Allah as far as their chests you they fear you you're more of a source of fear to them than Allah Daddy can be in the home. Home will lie of that is because they are a group of people who
to comprehend properly, their comprehension is off. They don't have that Phil is having specific knowledge right that's what it is in terms of elements, elements the word elements just general knowledge is specific knowledge. There's something missing in their specific understanding of things. You shouldn't yes you can be afraid of people but they shouldn't. You should not more than God himself. That's that's inappropriate.
The second a second mistake they made low quality do not come Jamia and ill from her Sonatine Oh meanwhile raw you do your best to whom Boehner whom she did that said boom Jimmy Garoppolo boom shatter the only fight you as a group.
They will fight you recommend me I don't fight you as a group except for your Quran Maha sunnah Maha Sangha in Hillstone is something that is fortified. That's why hellsten is a forte. So Hassan a fortified Bora the word Cora is the plural of cardio and cardio means a place that is defined geographically for a group of people.
And I say it then that I'm using this very weird terming because it's not just a village or a town which is something that we usually use to describe or translate Budhia Berea is any any space or geographical space that is defined for a group of people physically and that definition usually comes through through boundaries or through walls or something of the sort so it says put on my husband is defying that they would only fight if they were fully fortified. And they and there's no way in and there's no way for them to be flanked or if some I don't think that's the only time they'll do it. Oh man what I enjoyed are from behind high walls they wouldn't do it and open in open
But so when buying a home should lead their problem is that the the malice between themselves is horrible, meaning they have too much hatred for one another.
They they have too much hatred for one another their best strength being a home shady they use their strength against each other way more than they would elsewhere. Several home Jimmy are you when you look at them, you think that they're united? Well, hello, boom shutter shutter means in every direction, you will lately either Yaksha when the hurry that agenda, or my Holika Cara will infer Inessa comb, the shutter the the path that you take and lay for all over the place there. There are different they're very diverse, right? Well, Google Home shutdown in their hearts or is not in what there's their hearts are not unified. They may stand, they may seem like they're a group, but really
on the inside, they don't like each other. They don't agree on anything, they're in every direction. They're very, they're lost.
Again, this is not to speak of Kitab. And
this is not for us to enjoy. So yeah, that's how they are Yemen, which you can honestly any within the time that we're living we can
we can draw parallels to what we are seeing on a daily basis, this is the truth is the truth of what's happening. And because of history, it's always been the truth, and it will continue to be the truth. But I'm not a fan of taking the Quran and reflecting on others, because it's just not the way it's supposed to be used. It's not like using the Quran that way isn't, is also is a problematic way. Because it's not the way is it's designed, the Quran is there for you to take and reflect on yourself and learn. Now you'll have a piece of information of prophecy every once in a while that you can see, and you say subhanallah exactly what he's saying. But it's not used for that. That's
not a healthy usage for it. And if you get into that habit of taking the Quran and just and projecting it on others, and reflecting it on others, and then then you're getting into a bad habit, and then that you actually become a judge and you go from being a servant to a judge. And then unless Allah subhanaw taala has appointed you as a judge, then you're in a lot of trouble, you're gonna be in a lot of trouble, you'll be lucky because you're appointed a servant. Now if he doesn't want you to judge the somebody's business, then you may have a different story altogether. But as far as I know, we're all going to servants and servants should not be looking for ways to judge
others, but rather defined within what's being said a way for them to improve their service ship to Allah subhanaw taala himself. So when he points out why you're caught you wanna come Jamia in Latvia from hostel. I mean, they're too scared of you to fight in groups, except if they are fortified, and they're in their allocated spaces or behind high walls.
Because the hatred they have for one another is severe
and severe. You think that they're united, but their hearts are scattered.
If you're not able to read these two verses, and see the mirroring and the projecting of these verses on us, that I feel bad for you. I feel like you're not getting it and I honestly make dua that inshallah up because it's a problem. If you read these verses, and you project them on another group, and it's correct, you can project them on another group, especially during these days. No, no problem. It's true. That's always been the case. But if you're not able to read these verses, and project them on ourselves and see how accurate they describe us, then there's an issue then there's a real issue
We can walk in huge groups together. Seems like we all have the same way we don't. We don't maybe it seems like we do, but we don't. The reality of it is that we don't, you can't get 10 people in a room to agree almost on anything. You don't believe me go out and try. Get involved in the politics of a Muslim community and try and let me know. Let me know what if it works out for you. Let me know if you can get the hands of a couple of organizations within a small, small space, a small space of land, meaning maybe like a province, for example, like maybe Ontario, right? Where there's a very small number of Muslims and total in percentage, right percentage wise of the Muslim ummah, which is
2 billion people. Maybe Ontario has what? How many people?
400,000 people Muslims.
So maybe half a million Muslims? was half a million from 2 billion, right? It's nothing has changed, right? If you can get those people to agree on anything.
Then what are you hoping for exactly? That how are we? What are we doing? That said, boom, Jimmy on? Well, Kulu boom, shatta you think that they're all together? It seems like it because they'll go in there march together, in the way of the flag isn't everything. So it seems like they're all you know, I call it be illogical in your head, they have the heart of one man. But coloboma shutter is not actually most of their aggression is directed towards each other. Actually, most of their harshness comes out towards each other, actually, they use their they leverage their strength, not towards achieving the just causes of others, rather towards each other, that he can be unknown
Comilla that's because there are people who have no minds at all. The first one, it lacks specificity, specificity of knowledge, they have to hone like they it takes a it takes some degree of reflection, to be able to differentiate, differentiate between the fearfulness of Allah and the fearfulness of another person that requires reflect, you have to really understand something specific. But it doesn't take any brains at all, to stand by your brother and, and not to use your strength against them. And not to divide the group that you've got that takes no.
There's an old story
there's a man, his name is Howard had been wildly bullied. And his brother was murdered. He's like in Jamia. And when he found out as he investigated, and he found out that and of course enjoy Helia. If someone murdered a family member, you were shamed if you did not,
if you do not go after his talk, or if you do not eventually this person was you were shamed as a person, but you couldn't you couldn't walk around holding your head high people will people will shame you. If you did not avenge someone who was murdering your family because there was no law. There was no, there was no political authority. There was no police, there was no courts to bring in the person. You have to do it yourself. So if you didn't do it, you were shamed for that. So he is investigating find out who killed his brother. And it turned out it was his own tribe. It was it was people from his own tribe who did it. Right. So he sat down, he was depressed and his his wife, her
name was omega would come and she would tell him shame on you. You have not advantaged your brother
why the wife and this is brother because she doesn't want to be married to a person who is now has no status anymore. She doesn't want to be married to a man who people don't respect anymore. Again, she has the right to do that. So she's she's shaming him. So he says,
oh me who will catch you Omega three. So he says my people in poetry are the ones who killed Omega my brother
for either one or you two you'll see booni Sammy, if I if I let my arrow go I hit myself.
But in alpha two alpha one Jelena if I let this go, I let go huge, huge thing. What are in cellco to the UI none of me and if I decide to take my revenge, I will weaken my own bones understanding
if I if I go after it, I weaken myself.
There's a lot of examples like that there's a proverb and Syrian proverb
it's not a good one, but it but it's the same idea. So rip off of this, these two beautiful verses of poetry, that when you when someone in your family does it, you say if I spit upwards, falls on my forehead and I spit downwards. I spit on my lap, like no matter what I do, I'm only going to harm myself like I can't I can't do anything about this problem. Because no matter what I do is just gonna come back and hurt hurt me.
And I'm not saying that you accept the oppression of people that are similar to you. Obviously, that's not what I'm trying to say here. But to this degree, people would value their tribes or value their groups or value their brothers and sisters or value their nation
that they would
Give up on they would let things go. Just because it's not worth weakening their own. It's not worth doing it, I have a personal vengeance is a personal problem that I'm going through. But if it's going if the if my pursuit of that is going to weaken my own group and maybe I let it go and again, I'm not saying that that's that's what you have to do don't misunderstand, just explain that that's how far people into Helia would go. People who had no reason to even care too much about their group, they still would go that far. And let's be not to weaken their own group, what if you're a part of a nation, you have a good reason to be a part of the omit Muhammad Ali your salatu salam,
you have a good reason to want to belong to this OMA, you have a good reason to want it to be strong, you have a good reason to want it to be united.
And then we don't. And then we find these
petty reasons to divide, like that was petty reasons for us not to be one for us not to feel as one and not to react as well not to act and pull act as one. And to be that's just very sad. Because I don't know how to fix that, aside from each other and holding myself to that standard and encouraging you to hold yourself to that standard as well. As you go up, grow up through life and go through life. You're gonna run into moments where you have to choose between and even
avenging yourself, right, serving getting what you know, taking back what is yours, or protecting your reputation or, and taking one for the team. Just taking one for the team.
Are you able to do that able? Are you able to swallow your ego and take one for the team? Because it's because the health of the Ummah is more important than my your personal depravity, you saw something by the way, that's how, that's how he was described by people who didn't understand or didn't even think about that concept I'm explaining to you, meaning they didn't even this wasn't even something they they cared for. But when they described him out of your Serato, somebody will say, well, Yahoo WTF See he, he would never get upset for himself ever, ever, never get upset for himself. Like if you no matter what you said about him or did to him, you couldn't really provoke a
response from him. You couldn't get him angry. You couldn't. You didn't have that he didn't have that button. You know that button. You didn't have the button. You press there's nothing to press, there's no button. He can't make him angry. You can say things about you can say things about his family, you can poke at his, his wife, he will say things about Khadija
to tell us that it's because they will say things about Khadija would hurt him. They will say it's up to me because his wife can't give him children. It wouldn't say you just got upset, just feel sad and wouldn't say anything, never retaliate. He would refuse he would refuse. And he taught that to a Sahaba. And I'll tell you a beautiful example. In my opinion,
beautiful example that people don't appreciate.
Of being that way or being someone who understands that data boom, Jimmy and Rocco boom shutter is a big evil, where we seem on the outside that we're together, but deep inside the Kulu boom, shatter the hearts are everywhere, but to whom Boehner home should be the hatred amongst them is that is the most severe is what they their animosity to each other is the most severe, they they forgive others, they can't forgive themselves. The problem is, as I said, I'm wood wood wood coach, or might have been a fan for a while before he died, it has sought to coach him in a way where it was visible that he was whispering things to him and telling him things. And no one you know, it was really rude to
ask us nobody. They wouldn't do that because it was it the Prophet alayhi salam wanted everyone to know he would say it publicly but he didn't. He whispered, so we let it go.
And then one day, there was a there was a there was a piece of information that came out from from these whisperings that the Prophet it has taught us that I'm pointed out that Abu Bakr and Omar would both die as martyrs and earthmen as well and he would add I believe to Cebu, based on a really horrible event that will occur to him. The other two will just be momentarily it'll be assassinations are last but or sometimes it's going to be there's going to be a story behind it. And the story was that was the aftermath. And of course during his time Islamic the Islamic landscape just exploded. Exploded to be it was nothing. There had never been a kingdom that has has covered so
much land in such short time. And of course with that came a lot of challenges. And there was a fitna during his time, and during the time of Hajj, a lot of the peat the Mecca Medina was almost empty. People have gone to hygiene with men Stata, obviously with a group of people who stayed behind to govern and the houses of that time came and they surrounded his house wanting to kill him.
This but this sparked a lot of events that occurred later.
And he had a small army or the Allahu in Medina to protect him. Like he had the army to protect him. And the
head of the army were many people like saved not even even taught him and others and they would ask for the permission
to remove the rebels or the whole outage and he wouldn't give it
he wouldn't give it
He would command them to stand down and to put down your arms. And they would ask them if they're here to murder the Khalifa. And they are a militia. Let us remove them and he would refuse. He would refuse. And he would say from the end, he would negotiate with them with the holidays like with these people who negotiate them time after time trying to explain to them, it didn't go very far. But every time what is the most of these army that he had got frustrated? Why are you allowing us to remove them? He would say to them, lay your ankle and actually Earthman demo million Muslim for me, no blood will be spilled. Like for my life, no Muslim blood will be spilled.
If the price of this fitna to die off is my blood, then so be it.
And they broke into his home, and they murdered him, as he recited the Quran, and his blood spilled on the Mustaf. And there's still evidence of that today in some European museum somewhere. And he died on the Allahu Anhu right there. And the holidays after they did this. They dispersed, they left and the fitna for at least that period of time died off. Obviously, it sparked a a number of events that occurred later that was worth learning. But to me, that's one of the ultimate examples of someone saying no, not for me. My life, if my life needs to be paid for the unity of the OMA for people not to die or people, then I'll pay it and he paid it with his life of your loved one.
That's the ultimate example. Obviously, one of the ultimate examples. I'm talking about something much, much less than that, these verses are talking about something much less than than just the ability to
why we can your own. Well, the inside out too little in and out of me. If I if I go after my right, I will weaken my own bones. I ruined my own. Why would I do this? Why
the comb will lie Archelon that's because there are people who have no minds at all. They have no reasoning. They don't have no ability to reason at all. It's very, it's a very heavy ego. But it applies and I think we have to take this seriously and think about ourselves and think about what it means to belong to an ummah will continue to only be citation can methodology levena Emile Caudalie him Kariba

Fergana P betta Houma and Houma Finn
just watch your alkie better Homer that has a fat hat on and ultimately at the moment. No Homer Finn, recall the daily fee
so it's hardly daily incentive. In the
English we have singular and plural we don't have Mithuna we don't have the two like when it's two it's only two people. It has its own linguistic
assessment or application in English doesn't exist. I don't know what that was. Is there a word for it? I know someone did one of the scholars actually came they were able to figure out a word I think came from Latin or something. I don't know what it is. I forget what it is but it is there. Were there Lika jazz Wally Nene
so he continues to pile on what Donna pointing out for the hypocrites and the disbelievers the to another two groups within this OMA that we have
the OMA of Muhammad Ali Hassan first is not just those who responded.
These are very important to understand I feel all people don't understand who are the home of Mussolini's to them. Just the people who believed in Him are all Bani Israel.
Right, the home of Musa are all Bani Israel. Those who believed and those who didn't same thing for a Saudi Saddam faint same thing for all the prophets who would who is home hood, or is it the tenant people who accepted his dalla know his OMA are odd everybody
They didn't believe same thing for Sada, same thing for loop, all of them is the same law, the people of a profit are the people he is sent to, not the people who responded to him. Those are the ones who are going to make it. Those are the ones who will, will come up with your judgment with that person, which is fine, which is amazing. Obviously, we hope in sha Allah that we are with those Allah Muhammad that were part of that group. But his Obama or his comb, or the people whom he is sent to the provider, you saw him was sent to everyone. So everyone or his family, his thought was to them, and you said the whole world is the OMA of Muhammad, Allah Azza wa sallam he's made all of
We, some of them responded, and some of them didn't, we inshallah are going to try to be amongst those who responded to him out of them and listened, and maybe help those who didn't to actually do that. But everyone is Omani and Salatu was Salam. So when he was pointing that you're all one, you're a nation, within your nation, there gonna be people who just believe completely who don't respond, and those who are hypocrites, somewhere in the middle, the gray area where they don't really, and they have, and they're still apart. And that's how we are supposed to see the world that we live in. So it is very beautiful on the concept of belonging is talking about the different
groups and how they belong, and who was expelled and who isn't and how you, you're supposed to view everyone around you. But this is remind I'm just trying to remind you that the OMA Muhammad, Allah Salatu Salam is everyone since the day he was given the prophecy, every person who lived from that day till the Day of Judgment, or his own money, so it was set up.
And he wants to see as many of them coming on the Day of Judgment with the right with the right toolkit with the right choices with the right ideas. And that is dependent on those who responded, conveying it appropriately to those who did not. And those who responded making the right choices so that those who did not have a better chance at responding. That is what this is based on. Or else there's really no and this is important because if the story was different, because the story of Musa and ASA are different.
They're different moods, Allison was not sent to humanity, he was sent to any sleep. So was ESA, which is obviously an argument we can have with our
fellow Christians that you really really what you're what you're preaching is not was not was never meant to be preached out anyone who's not the it within this small group. That's in the Bible. Jesus says in the Bible, I was sent to the sheep of Israel, like it's talking about his own people. Like it's not it wasn't sent to everybody. The Quran hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen.
The first verse in the Quran talks about universality. He's not the Lord of Ibrahim, as he is described in the Old Testament in the New Testament, as the God of Abraham, in the Quran didn't come in hamdulillah Hello, Robbie Ibrahim. No, it's hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen. Everyone is the Lord of everybody. Prophets have been sent throughout history to prayer groups for small groups for small towns and villages, in cities and in races and ethnicities. And Muhammad Ali salatu salam was sent for everyone, because there was no one who was gonna come later. There's no follow up, there's no Plan B of this isn't workable send someone to this No, no. So that universality is very important.
So learning of that the fact that there are disbelievers, and that there are going after clean and sewage. And that the point here is not combat with them. The point here is not to get rid of them or to it's that they're a part of your group, yes, with flaws, but it's still your obligation to work with them. And that and that is what this sort of is explained. It's very valuable in that mean, it's very valuable that it keeps that concept alive. And we need that specifically as Muslims living where we are and also when we are making the time that we live in is very, very
these are very interesting times. They really are I struggled to draw parallels with improperly from our history, because it's always helpful to do so if you can figure out a historical time where there's something similar. So you can see how it turned out what choices that Muslims made that were good and which ones were bad. So you can learn. I'm struggling to find a good parallel here, we don't really have a lot that is similar to this low dollar item. So he points out subhanaw taala, Catherine Levine, Emil cobbly, and Kareem and their behaviors as they strike alliances with one another. And they promised each other support and they don't come through with it. And they fall
into these problems. Where they were they were they were their principles aren't, aren't straight, and they fear people more than the fear of God. And they act like they are united, united front but deep inside they're not and that's only weakening their stance to begin with. Catherine Levine and uncommonly, him Korea but they are similar. Their example is similar to those who came before them, but not too long ago and they're related to them.
He's pointing out subhanaw taala what happened at the time of Buddle
chemotherapy Lavina milk bubbly exactly similar to what happened to the people before them but even not too long ago. The who were Bella and Brenda
means they taste they got the taste whereby lambri meaning the negativity, or the devastation of their choice and remove their of their status status or their stance, while Bella Marie meaning the devastation and the negativity and the punishment of their choices, they tasted the negativity and the punishment of what they chose. What else am I that Aleem and they were given a very painful punishment, he's pointing out subhanaw taala to the people above their knees, telling them and basically saying that, once you do that, once you start dividing the group, once you decide that you don't want to stand by those whom you agree upon on many things, or those who you pledge that you
would be a citizen in that country with them and that you would defend them, they would defend you once you did decide to divide, that division only leads to what happened to the people on the day border, where it turns into where it turns into confrontation, where it turns into a showdown. And then and then just like the people, just like the machete candidate, but there were were beaten, you'll be beaten as well. Then he gives another example that's your example is in another example come as any shaytaan is it's like it's like a che it's fun. If caught in Sonic for when he comes and tells the human being or luring a human being into, into turning his back or turning her back to
Allah subhana wa Oakford refused to acknowledge ALLAH SubhanA his bounty upon you refuse to acknowledge God altogether. But America for once the human being does it.
but he will make me I have nothing to do with you. I absolve myself from any affiliation or association with you in a half Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah I mean, I fear Allah, the Lord of everything. So I have nothing to do with you. I absolve any, any any association with you, I completely remove myself from your alliance.
How is that the same as going back to what then would have been said to the to the kuffar. They know college to medical John DeMarco, if you do this is when someone strengthens you to do the wrong thing. And divide and cause and cause division within the group that you're a part of. You'll find those people a lot you'll run into them. It'll happen more than once in your life, where you know what the right thing is, what the right thing to do is, but someone's they're promising you everything just to make that wrong choice. Usually they have an agenda. Usually they have some some specific agenda is a reason why they want this to happen. And once you make that choice, and that
choice backfires, or it doesn't work out just like the shaytaan when he tells the human being quote a quote unquote, human being all right, all right, fine. Go for it. The other day of judgment.
Sorry, your problem i i I'm sorry. I fear God I can't You're on your own. You're on your own. But you told me I'm sorry. i Yeah. You're not to listen to me. She thought it was a horrible human.
Gives a sermon record a straight line with a method in Allah azza wa jal happy or I took him first left to come indeed Allah has promised you the promise of truth and I promised you and I completely take it all back fast enough to cook well am I can Elia Allah equal means Wilpon, ill and TAO to come faster but only and the only control I ever had over you is that I call upon you and you came. But I tell you Mooney or Lumo and Fusa calm so don't blame me blame yourselves, man and animal sleepy, calm, Mama and don't be mostly tea. I will not hold you accountable today. Nor will you hold me accountable today. In Nika how to be measured up to morning and covered I completely removed
myself from any active shirt that you perform based on what I explained or using me as an excuse. I completely absolved myself I am not a part of it
I'll give a speech and welcome because a lot of people will still depend on well I didn't really wasn't me I just followed the someone
you're here for kinda after you but Tacoma and Nicole Murphy nerdy hardly do any fee.
So the end point or the end result for the both of them is that they would be in the Hellfire for all time.
After you but Delma is a hub. I'm not going to bore you with that. That's fine. If you want to learn Arabic grammar, you can come and attend to the Arabic grammar lesson. Like I know it but to whom and to whom if you're nerdy, Hardy Danish, both of them, the one who led the one who lured and the one who accepted
the one who caused the division and the one who in the background was encouraging it. Both of them will be punished Jamelia, both groups, you can neither neither can absolve themselves. They can say, well, I did it but it wasn't my idea. Nor could anyone say well, I didn't do it. I just suggested it. I didn't make the decision. Both of them will be held accountable. You'll know. Because the active division, the active what ruins the Unity or what ruin is the group mentality of a nation.
This is the biggest evil we've got. If you don't believe me just just read the chorale a bit more depth, especially the Madani verse
or, if you resort to the you know, for example,
let me Aquila, the unica for a woman and he gets it when we should get him on for Kena. to mobile, he also
points out the one mistake they were told not to make. And they made while not to fall raka Latina Otto Kitab Ilam embody my judgment allele Abdullah, they divided, they were given a very simple rule to follow me and they didn't give me the commands were simple. So today is important to learn. By the way, no, it's hard to memorize, don't you understand it, it's very easy to memorize, they made that one mistake they divided. So one thing you don't do, you don't you don't cause that do not be a source of division within your community or your society. Very important to, to observe what I just explained to you.
You will be compelled at some moments to do that, especially especially when you're being targeted within your community or you're not being listened or heard or listened to or heard. When you're not being valued or respected. You'll have that urge to divide, you have that urge to do something and go on, resist it. Because the number one evil that exists within an ummah is this is that division is making the division is dividing is it being deeper is the division being deeper and being longer and being more difficult, be a source of togetherness, be a source that bring be someone who brings people together? Who helps others understand the difference of opinion, respect it, tolerate it and
move on and work together and get along? Especially within a group where the ideology is the same? Do you understand that as Muslims, we agree upon 99% of all of the existential questions. Like all the big questions we all agree on like that meaning mean you don't even you don't even hesitate, you know, exactly all we agree on all the basic stuff like the really important stuff, by the way, like, is there a creator? Yes. Who is he? Allah? What is this story? You know, this is stuff that most human beings don't even have any, any, any clarity on at all. And if you put a couple of 100,000 people in a room, everyone has a different explanation. We agree on this stuff like like based on
reflex immediately, and then we ignore all that. Not all that. And we just take a couple of details, few minor or tertiary complex concepts or topics, and we just we, we fight and we divide, we divide and we divide him invite until dasa boom, Jamia and localu Boom shut until about souhan bina homeshare did until others are shut Dora button for us to do the mean Allah until we are that way. And the example is the example of of the people of Croatia in a day. But that's the example. Why why is that example because who were they fighting? Who was always fighting? They're fighting their own. They were fighting their own, he will keep on telling them I saw too so why are you fighting me?
Leave me to do what I do. If it works out then is the resume then my the my accomplishment is yours because we're family. You will be respected and revered equally, because we're the same. Like we all come from the same tribe. And if they kill me, then someone else will kill we'll get rid of me for you. How are you fighting me? Why are you doing this? It's a waste of time. He would he would grieve for them out of yourself. He was down there and grieve for Quraysh once they die, once he killed was that Bucha who was there and Earth memorabilia and shea butter he would stand there and he would speak to them. And he said Why? Why did you do this? Did you find what I told you was the truth to
be the truth? Could you not have made other choices? And they would say Allah so Allah while speaking to them they're dead faithful man Don't be a smile even whom you don't hear me more than they do they hear they hear me they hear they hear what I'm saying. Why? Why Why would you do this? And the question is left with us as well why why would you be a part of anything that would cause division within your Oma? Why because of ego because of a lion because of what what was what was it that was worth it like almost gamma you have to answer what is it going to be worth what aspect of life is going to be worth causing division saying to him Bina who should do that they only their
strength is only against each other their malice in there and no as if the only only came out when it was against one another. You think they're together but their hearts are scattered?
That's why the other examples Shavon Shavon just comes and gives you that attractive, delicious idea where you can just you can break off and do
but then he leaves you on the Day of Judgment and you have no one there to stand with Attica. Lee mean that is the that is the consequence of those who oppress themselves. We'll end with that inshallah. Tada. We will recite the finale of surah Taha shall which is just beautiful. Please do it yourself and read it and contemplate it a little bit and then we'll go over next week and show is very beautiful, very, very, very soothing. So Pagla.
