Sunday Tafseer Halaqah
About this time, but
today insha, Allah to Allah, we will continue and the Tafseer of surah. In Bucha Dena,
Salah now has been going on for around a year and a half almost exactly, we got through one and a surah.
It's not very impressive in terms of time, that's usually the case, it tends to perform slow or not slow, but comprehensive explanation of the Quran, especially when you're doing it in another language requires time, in order for to do it do is just to do it justice, and to make sure that we're actually help helping other people understand and form a Holistic comprehension of what the sutras are talking about. And at the plant itself. There are different speeds you can do to see it and I could I could I could jog through this stuff. It's I did sort of summaries where I would take 25 minutes and just summarize a sutra for you, that's fine as well. We tried the theme based one
back at West mountain that didn't work and people didn't like that. Or maybe they did I don't know, if I didn't I didn't like I didn't like it. They stopped it. But this is the there's a slow kind of a comprehensive, we go through the verses slowly to go through them word by word. And then I tried to make sure that I help you understand what the verses are trying to tell you because I feel that's the piece that's missing. For a lot of people today. Where they're reading the verses, they read the verses before someone has offered them a basic translation before but they don't know exactly what to do with this stuff. And that's what I'm trying to help you with what to do with these with these
verses, what is the sewer trying to explain to us what values are we supposed to walk away with and what changes to our behaviors or principles or
practices should we implement in our lives based on learning, like learning a sutra, and, and that's the goal, obviously. So we started we did from path to Al Hadid and that was one cluster of sources and the other omake. And we talked about the importance of of them, and this cluster from images that are majority to the Hareem
which is a cluster and they're all many sources, and they talk about organization of relationships within the Muslim, for Muslims, for Muslims, between Muslims and Muslims as sort of the majority that goes without going to talk specifically about the relationship within the Muslim ummah, within between Muslim individuals, as spouses, parts of community, with your leadership, who you take us allies, which we're going to talk about today, the last piece, and then every student is going to talk about a different aspect of organization within the Muslim ummah, and there's a lot of students, so there's going to be a lot of different ways of looking at it. And you're gonna see that
each one has, each school has a unique take on an aspect and aspect of organization.
And it's pretty much in this juicer is for sure, very much needed for us as a, as a Muslim community here in the West, there's a lot for us to actually take from it. We don't obviously we're not a country on our own. But we do function as a retry, or we're hoping to function as an independent community as a part of the larger Canadian society. As a part of the larger Canadian societal society in the country itself. We're focused trying to function as a community because we have certain aspects of our of our belief system and our practices that are unique, that are different. And we would like to maintain our identity and maintain our belief system maintain the values that
we teach our kids and the ones that we live by. So this just is for sure, it's something worth our time to learn, because it's going to point out a number of important concepts and, and the verses we're going to read today from if 14 till the end, and Charlotte, Donna, we're going to get through all of them.
This last chapter of Susan Widjaja, is going to explain to us
can talk about the idea of Wilaya of taking allies or making alliances or allegiances. And it's going to point out the fact that you must do this with your Muslim brothers and sisters first, meaning there is no bond that is struggling is what I'm telling you the getting to the bottom line of these seven or eight verte these nine verses before we go through them. The bottom line of them is that there is no bond that is more powerful, that is stronger for you, as a Muslim than Islam itself. That is the strongest bond, that bond trumps all that bond is superior to all the other bonds, not to say that the others aren't important. But this one here is by far the most important.
And the supermajority that looked at
that looked at the relationship between spouses and told us that oppression is unacceptable. It looked at secret counsel and said that this is detrimental for you. If you're going to work together you have to actually be transparent and work in the open and look at the fact that everyone has to be welcome in this society that everyone has to have a job that when we are going to ask for a service from the community you must also be giving just like we take we must give that there has to be respect for those who are in leadership positions and
Those who are helping this is all just organizing the relationship between Muslims, the last piece of the surah saying and may it be made may, may you be reminded that the alliance of Islam itself is more powerful than any other. Anything else that may exist?
Some people when they read these, the students, these mendini students, they get a little bit they cringe, or they find it difficult because they think that, you know, we're going to walk down a path of violence somehow, I never understand how that's going it never once have I ever talked about any assault on the Quran and found myself compelled to bring up an aspect of violence or I need to bear arms and go after a there's nothing. Islam is just very, very transparent and clear about things. It's clear on the fact that what brings us together is this Deen, that's what unites us. That's what we must maintain. That's what we must protect, and there's nothing to us that is more valuable than
it. If that wasn't the case, then there's no point in believing it to begin with it. That's not how you comprehend Islam. That's how you see it, then why are you even, there's no point in being a Muslim, like there's wasting your time, any ideology that is not worth living for and dying for is not really an ideology worth, you know, belonging to in the first place, it's a waste of your time, you're better off just kind of floating solo in the world and belonging to something that you're only in 50%, like, I'm okay, I like 123. But I don't like the rest, you know, it's time to take it as a whole. And as a community, we have to remind ourselves of that. And actually, the applications
of these verses are not what you think they are the applications of these verses just as a Muslim, you're the loyalty that you show in terms of of,
of whom it is that you stand by whom it is that you defend, where you put your wealth, where you spend your volunteer hours, what it causes you're willing to actually go out on a limb to work for is going to be Islamic once, that's what is going to result in that. And most people aren't willing to do that piece. We want to have know, as Muslims, I have to prioritize if I'm going to be giving my wealth that has to be for the causes that affect my Muslim brothers and sisters. It's not because Muslims are more important. That's not the point. Again, it's a myth. It's another misconduct misconception. We don't believe that Muslim blood is somehow more superior. No, it is not. But if
for me to give, not to give my Muslim brothers and sisters, if they're related to me, then that's, that's, that's a given. But if they're not related to me, then I'm just respecting my other Muslim brothers and sisters who they are related to, I'm saying, yeah, they're because they're not I know, they don't, they don't matter to me anymore. And I'm saying that the bond that I have outside of Islam is stronger in my eyes and the bond that I have with you as a Muslim brother and sister, and that is the Islamically. No, that's not the case. The bond that trumps all is, this is the bond of Islam. And we have to start practicing that and most people aren't, you know, I don't find that
that's the case. Honestly,
you'll read these verses, and they think in directions that are, you know, that are extreme and mistaken, and misinterpreted and wrong, basically. But then they're ones that are actually appropriate, we're not willing to do where not all Muslims are perfect. Not everything Muslims do was great. And our community is not flawless. You can't isolate yourself from the Muslim community. You don't have the luxury, you're not allowed to do that. Now like to step out and say, Allah, hey, the Muslims are what are the Muslims? What are you know, they the Muslims, and start with yourself? They'll say, the Muslims and point out where Muslims start with yourself, what are you you're not
Muslim, but you're different. You're different breed of Muslim, your, your, your superior to the rest of the Muslims? No, we're Muslims, all of us. There's good and there's bad, and we continue to work on we we strengthen the good and we work on the bad. And we're not, this is what I'm trying to say, this is where these verses become important. This is your group. You don't necessarily have to like everyone in your group, but it's your group, it's yours. This is the ship that you're in. Either we sail together or we sink together, it's really, you're not going to make it on your own. That none of us well, I can't sit around and criticize from the outside and say, Well, I know that
the community is like this, or Muslims are like that. No, no, no, this is this is your group, get down here in the mud with me and work with it, and help fix it and help make it better and do what you need to do. That's what you do get on the ground and you do the work.
And this is why I talk a lot about Don't worry, we'll read the verses. I'm just gonna, I'm gonna finish this rant so I can get out of my system. Then we'll read the verse and I'll do the Tafseer for you.
That's when people come to me with with ideas. I tell them don't don't give me ideas, and champions something they'll give me an idea. They'll give me an idea. Don't come to me like the Duke of Rochester and say, here's the idea. If you do it, I haven't been busy. You have an idea. Go ahead and champion it championing the idea, get get get down and dirty. Go go ahead and do it. There's your community as well work for it. Go and gather whoever you need to gather and work with the people and networking and fundraising and get your idea and move your idea forward.
And the reason is because most people are willing to have an idea but they're not willing to back it up. They're not willing to spend the extra time or extra time or even dedicate time for it. And that's not fair.
What do you think we have I have nothing else to do you think anyone who's working for the sake of Allah Subhanallah have no lives you don't have families or things to do? You're not busy. Why do you think why am I not being paid by God himself I am jealous, you know Allah by not not in the form that you think not in the form that you think he's not it's not a I wasn't appointed by anybody, you just do this, you just you do the work. We all are a part of this community equally. We just do different roles and this is the role that I'm doing. And when someone comes in more qualified, I'll move aside and they can do the role instead of me. You just find the role and you do your do your
part. And, and this, this whole idea of isolating ourselves a little bit, and maybe chumming up to those who aren't Muslim and looking at this Muslims and I've seen this happen well, I'm going to end up with high blood pressure at the end of my life if I keep on seeing these things where someone is a Muslim they're talking about Muslims as if they're not yes they have this problem yes, they have that problem. Who is day What do you mean they say yes, the Wii U What do you mean they are where is they that who are you? If you're saying a date and you must be different it must belong to some other group
you're saying the problem here this is the issue and this is what these verses that we're going to recite in Charlotte Donna will will help with so let's start with number 14 and go through the midnight Allah with the time that we have this will be learning in a shape on your body
Bismillah here Juan Manuel Rafi
LM del or EDA Lavina De La Palma
a woman all day long who early him
my home Ming comb wala Amin home
so you can see that there's a little bit more emphasis on the first two so the two means when they come together ma whom you can see on the second mean there's a shudder and that means that there's a decline when you're putting them together take to council man whom is to count and then mean come because the calf is a half then you have ended up being come so it's two comes to Cosma whom being come and then the new one with her after that is not over so you end up with no to count Well, I mean whom there is no you don't give it time. And this is just again to to kind of it takes little bit of time to learn which which points you give the noon the emphasis of time and a wet and when
you don't a really easy way to do it if this is not something that you're studying on the on a daily basis or weekly basis. As you can you can even acquire a Quran that has that is colored for the juried purposes and then you'll find that whenever it's a you see the green color then that's an emphasis of two counts. And if there's no green color then you don't have to emphasize and it just made me something good to pick up it's not that difficult to find you can find them in the Islamic club. This point to websites will it's easy to do quite well but that's something you can do to help learn where you give the London where you don't well yeah Lee funa ll Kcd well whom ya allah moon
i de la hula whom either been shared shoddy EDA
yeah I'm a loon
it was to a man whom Jordan
fell for new Serbia
fella home either boom oohing
it's always explaining these will keep on going because the it's continuous. Basically the meaning just keeps on going there's no real stop. Here's this last paragraph of the sewer is all one one bulk. We just didn't know what to honor here. I love it. And this is this is the theme in the sutra. There's not the first time he said this is the third time if you go back to the page before I seven and eight each of them started I'm Tara I'm Tara. So what significance that carries them Tara is Did you not see or have you not seen and this is whenever you find that in the Surah is the Allah Subhana Allah provoking the Prophet Allah usato Islam's observation of his reality. So alum Tara is
always going to be so if you go back to the sewer we recited before. So if you go to Hadid and walk down and Rama you don't find that you won't find this this phrasing it's not there, because because those are Matthews daughters and they were explaining the basics, the fundamentals. Here are the majority law
Imagine historic even Medina came later. And it's helping the Muslims deal with their day to day issues or helping them deal with contemporary issues. So Allah subhanaw taala will use within the Sutras, the language that points in that direction. Meaning Did you not see this? Have you not seen that me Have you not observed that these are problems that you're dealing with. And because there are problems, we're going to address them for you. So and I'm done in that case, and doesn't mean, it's only meant that, you know, there are monkeys that have an internal ontology to follow, because I believe, for example, but I'm just going short, pointing out that in disorders that this is
repeated, and there's a couple of them, it's usually the point of it, or the goal is to provoke thoughts that this is an issue that you can see that you observe and that you're dealing with. So I'm Tara, Elan, Xena, todo lo Pohlmann Gottlieb, Allahu Allah, you him. So the word Illa. Here is also because when you see something, you don't usually use an Arabic, the prefix era, you don't say, a to Elijah ray to Shams, I saw the sun, I don't want you to either shrimps that either you don't add, you add it, if it's not actually a visual seeing is more an observation. So it's taking the word total, which is to see but and making sure that you understand it's figuratively, not
literally, because literally, you wouldn't have elattrache, it would be an Avatara Alladhina at our local and you see the people who who did this. And this is obvious again, and let me let me go into a bit more deeper for you. And Had that been the case, then the whole point of this verse would not be to explain the concept that I'm going that I started this halacha with, it would be just the actual behavior that these people did.
And the commentary on that behavior and how that was wrong. And that would be the end of it'd be it would be something as soon as they did this. Did you see that? They did this and the end of it. But when he says ILA, it goes from observing them to observing the phenomenon. Slightly different when you added the elite here, it went from, if you said, allow them to tell a Latina Did you see the people, then it becomes just seeing them and what they did. When I said, I'm telling Elan Latina, then it's no longer just seeing them. It's observing the phenomenon that occurs by them and by others. I mean, this is something that's recurrent, it's happening all the time, are you seeing it,
and I'm telling either Latina travel loco to well, load comes from the jungle, or the base the route to Wilaya, which is what I taught, which is means alliances, or loyalty, or allegiance, or whatever you however you want to put it, there's a number of different English words that that are similar to it. And this is not talking about
merely political allegiance. It's not that that's not what it's talking about. It's talking about
social, religious, humane alliances. Political is a little bit different politics are talked about in the Quran, but they're really not talks about and Sujatha.
If you go to sort the debate, you'll find there's politics that goes with the inside, there's politics there, there's a few students coming down the road within the this unit that were reciting. There'll be politics there as well, where it points out aspects of policy here and certainly, you know, this is talking about just within the Muslim community, or issues of organizing your work together. A part of that is the problem is pointing out the problem of choosing your alliances or allegiances with Pohlmann with people with a group or a nation with all the biller who either you him that have deserved Allah's wrath by either fighting the Muslims, or by refusing the Dawa of
Allah subhanaw taala from the prophet Isaiah salatu salam there Yanni deserving of Allah's wrath, man whom income? Well, I mean, whom these people are neither amongst you, nor are you from amongst them, meaning the differences between the two of you about whom income they are not from you, well, now whom in whom, when neither are you from them, this is referring to the differences that exist between these two groups.
So this was a phenomenon
at the title of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, I want you to understand this observation very important. During the time of the Prophet It is similar to Islam when things were happening, that people were accepting Islam, but they were keeping their personal alliances, their personal loyalty with those who were not Muslim. But were their friends for a long time or maybe family members or their tribe or whatever. And the Quran game is a no no, this is not how you do it. Why don't you say that? In Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, your group now are the Muslims. This is your group. They are the ones your focus is on them your loyalty is to them. You serve them they serve you, this is your
group from now on. You don't take some other group called leave Allahu Allah who have refused the Tao of Allah either they are fighting the Muslims so that from that degree they had from that angle they have deserved draft or they have refused the Dallas or the desert dress.
Right now now home income what I'm in home for now and they're no longer from you nor nor are you from them. We're actually funa ll KDD well whom Yeah, Ala Moana people who are doing that are swearing. They're they're taking oaths.
And truthfully, I look at them knowingly. They're there.
They're taking oath that no, we don't choose them as they were just they're not actually our allies. We're still loyal to this group, even though they're they know that they're not doing that. And the reason that this is being brought up in the Quran is because this happened during his time out of your salatu salam, this was a problem. It's a problem today and it was a problem back then. Where they were accepting Islam, but not really not really, but not taking the whole package. They just want the piece that they the piece that works for them. Yes, I want the I like to theology theology makes sense. It's simple. This whole us nothing anybody agree with to begin with? I'm like, I like
this thing. But nothing else. I don't want anything else. I don't want to be a part of it. I'm not going to I don't care about your problems. I'm not gonna come and help you fix them. I don't belong to your group. I'm not I'm not gonna pass a cut to you. This is not this doesn't matter to me this this your issue don't matter to me. I'm a part of this tribe. And they're allowing me to nameless and I'm I'm okay with that. I'm not a part of you. Right? That's what they're doing mentally the Prophet Allah Yes. I'm gonna tell them this is not appropriate. You're Willa has to be with the group. So they swear that no is with you. Well, let me I know, the phone and I will catch him. And
they they untruthfully couldn't be lying untruthfully they taken make an oath that they are watching me, even though they know that they're not even though that they just made a decision that that's not what they're going to do this scary.
This scary because I you know, we know that that certain degree of that exists in the world, if you're Muslim, but not really. I mean, just just enough to have that on your identity on your birth certificate or whatever piece of documentation that you have that you want, Mr. Mueller, or just enough so that you can continue to be a part of family gatherings and maybe attend to you didn't dress up or something, but nothing else besides that. And even if you're not even if someone's not practicing,
this piece is still very valuable. Many scholars pointed this out. That the problem with not practicing is not just the fact that their rituals fall off is because this piece falls off as well as because the actual Alliance and the belonging is the word I'm trying to get everyone to think about without saying is the belonging piece, it's not there anymore. This here is when he talks about to Willow Coleman. He's pointing out the belonging piece, they belong to another group they accepted Islam but they belong over there. And in the Quran, saying my home income while I'm in home you don't know you don't. Now you belong here to the Prophet Allah Islam will point that out and
they would take their oath and truthfully saying that they were even though they weren't omiana mod dilla who to whom I got up and shut EDA, I'd done meaning prepared. Allah has prepared for them a APB painful punishment or severe punishment either been shut either should use severe severe punishment in the home set cotton we do indeed. It is horrific or it is wrong sir is from say you say it is bad. So is is just anything that is not good. So as something that has gone rotten or something that is no longer functional. That's what the that's the usage of the word in Arabic and Nomsa. I'm not gonna be I'm gonna be the DE is that they did. We're we're not good. We're not
helpful. We're not beneficial. We're not functional.
It does lead to a man whom, Jonathan.
It doesn't mean they have considered or they have taken a man on their oaths Jonathan as protection.
Meaning wherever that wherever the Prophet it is, I'm pointed that out to them that your your belonging is not with us as with the other group, it's obvious you're doing 1234 You're not belonging, you're blind, they're your alliances, or they're not here, they will swear notes with you, even though it isn't. And they're using their oaths as means to protect themselves from being pointed out that they're doing something wrong. Why is this in the Quran? This is in the Quran to tell us that we don't have the means to hold anyone accountable for this problem. That's why this in the Quran is telling us that you don't have the means to hold someone accountable and say you don't
you're not belonging to the Ummah, you're not your alliance, your loyalty is not stronger with Ilminster. You can point it out to them, but you can't hold them accountable for it. Because all they have to do is say no, it is and that's the end of it.
They took their oath to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and he accepted. The Quran came and said it tocado Amen I'm gonna use the O's those oath as as protection for themselves. But the reason that that's there is saying, but you don't have you have nothing you can do. You can't. It's not like you can go in, there's no there's no criteria. There's no checkbox. If you don't fill this, don't you? You're like, No, this is this is an issue that is personal.
It's personal. Where you belong is personal. For sure. It's personal. For sure where you feel that you belong is something that is very personal. There is no criteria within Islam to actually define it. But hold on, it's telling you, you must make sure that it's with the right group. Don't make it with the wrong group. We can't hold you to that and dunya and ask Allah to hold you to it. No problem. But Anthony, I can't hold you to it. I can't come and prove it. I don't have a way to do that.
Because all you have to do is just even without me you don't even know what the Prophet alayhi salam they had to give an oath because he's the prophets of Allah as I tell him when someone else you don't need an oath. You can just say I'm with the Muslim always have been okay, good. I started using Hamdulillah. But is it is it the truth
which is what the point of these verses are for us to read, reminding us of our is that where our loyalty lies? Do we belong to an ummah? Do you feel like you belong to it? You carry the
the weight of Islam on your shoulders? Or does Islam carry your weight?
Are you carrying the dean? Or is the Dean carrying you? Which which is it? Are you pushing?
Pushing forward? Are you sitting up front as others do the job? Are you pushing backwards? Are you not sitting on the car all together?
This is what this these verses are asking where exactly do you lie in this whole story, there's only one place to be, there's only one thing that's acceptable, you're on the ground and you're pushing forward with all your might, with all that you've got within the capacity and the limitations that you have no one, not everyone can do everything. Everyone's different, depending on how much wealth and status and how old you are and where you are, you have different your reach differs
clearly, but whatever your reach is, should be used for the right reason and
the hudway Merner home Joona they just use those oats as means to protect themselves. So do unsteady Lilla in by doing that they have deviated and they have repelled themselves and others from the way of Allah fellow whom either Abu Hain and because of that they will have a humiliating punishment of the day of judgment to continue their citation because universities are very heavy. And the reason that they're heavy is because this act is problematic. This phenomenon and I'm delighted Alladhina todo lo Coleman called the biller who I lay him this problem here is
has severe consequences.
Because yeah, you have deadweight
you have those who are on paper Muslim, but they're not really
those who belong to Islam, you have to care for them. You have to serve them you have to do things for them. You have to hear their complain, but they're not going to do anything at all. They don't belong. They're not gonna participate. They're not going to admit to any short comings or wrongdoings and I can actually get enough there's going to be a very difficult cause a lot of difficulties because a lot of problems is why these verses have that degree of severity in the word and that's why we continue to keep on hearing some of these
some of these punishments learn to near and whom um, well who whom
Well, hola Nina law he che
hola eager nadie Hoon V her holy do
yadda yadda as long who Jeremy
for Yeah, Li funa Allahu gana yeah li funa Allah calm
well yeah, sir guna and whom Allah che
Allah in Whom will the moon
so we continue to pound ISIS Lenin Antonia and home they will not be benefited by and that's the best way to translate this even though that's not very accurate. Lina is for you not to be in need of something. And then Tony I know whom meaning that their wealth and their descendants, Allah Dahomey, their financial support and their social support their financial kingdoms and their social empires will not put them in a position where they are not in need of anything else. They will continue to be in need. That's what they were looking at means. You just heard us automotive Yeah, you are natural. And to move Quran, Allah Allah Allah who will have money, the money mean the one
who needs no one will care the one who needs something. That's where this comes from. By the way, these are the origin of these words in Arabic. So Lina is not wealth is being in a position where you you don't need anything or you're not need and that is obviously translated into wealth. So let Antonia and home meaning they're unwell. Meaning their wealth and their children or their offspring will not put them in a position on the day of judgment where they're not in need. It's not gonna help them they're gonna continue to be need like everyone else. I mean, Allah He che in terms of their relationship with Allah subhanaw That's not going to help them when regarding what they need
from Allah subhanho wa Taala
you the other day of judgment, we are all in dire need of Allah subhanaw taala has compassion of Allah subhanaw taala as Love of Allah subhanaw taala as acceptance we
We need Allah subhanaw taala to look at us
well, I only look at him in the Quran while I envelope at him. When you're milking Amity when I was a key him and more than one place, but he doesn't even look at, you are hoping that he just looks at you subhanaw taala that you are worthy of Allah subhanaw taala glancing at you, that's all you're hoping for. And that's the difference between Allah looking at you and not looking at you as a difference between surviving and not. And whatever wealth or whatever social support that you had and whatever status you had built in this world, it means nothing. If Allah subhanaw taala glanced at you through his compassion versus completely neglect us subhanaw taala said Anna, Willa, it was
terrible nerdy home fi her Holly do indeed these are the people of the fire and they will be there for all time.
Three verses in a row talking about the punishment of those who decide that their belonging is stronger with another group either than the Muslims or with a group that are defying Muslims or foot droop or a fighting Muslims or a group that are a group that has a completely refused the message three i dilla hula hoops it does lead to a man whom Jonathan facade don't answer be left alone. Learn Tonia, Angela three times.
This is severe of high severity. You don't have a lot of examples in the Quran, where you have
a mistake or a behavior and then three verses in a row pointing out how wrong it was. And the punishment that is that is associated with it. And the problem that comes with it. Whenever you hear that and all that really means to you or what you should do is you should make hit the brakes and take a step back and wonder Okay, all right. If it's that if that who is that bad? Am I have I thought this through? Have I thought my alliances through? Have I thought my belonging? Do I know exactly where I belong? Do I feel that do I behave that way? Am i That's why these verses are just not quite, it's not repelled people from the Nano is to tell you that this is a big deal. There's a
lot hanging on this, there's a lot riding on it. If you don't, if you don't know what you're doing regarding this issue, then why? Because a lot because it affects the outcome. Because it affects the outcome. That's why it's important. It affects what what Islam looks like in the long run. We are trying as Muslims, we are trying to delay.
We're pushing away for as much as possible. We're trying to spread as much emotion in the world as possible. So that they can people can live on and on generation after generation. And they can accept this dynamic and live a good life and they can please Allah subhanaw taala and they can be worthy of his of his compassion and his mercy and did not deny, the more the better. That's the point of this, the more life that we can bring forward that can enjoy the beauty of what life is understand why they're there, no Allah subhanaw taala obey and live this life and go to him that this is what we're trying to do your milk, Yama ends all of that, that's not good. We don't want
that we don't want this to end we don't want there to be a generation where no one's going anywhere, which ends the whole story. So you want to get rid of that you get rid of that by making sure that we can continue to push this legacy down hand and hand the beacon down and just keep on moving forward with the baton so that we every generation has that. So whenever there's an issue in the Quran, that Allah push itself, and he talks about punishment is because it's it's a critical piece that will ruin the possibility of that happening. And when Muslims don't belong to their OMA anymore, when the concept of an OMA again, taking this one more step for you. So you understand what
these verses are talking about. We talked about alliances, we talked about belonging, this is talking about the sense of OMA a sense of unity, of unity, a sense of the group, when that is lost, then it's just that the clock is ticking, but it's
just a matter of time before everything is lost. When the sense of an ummah of a nation of being a part of a group, that you support and strengthen and you're welcome. It's not a cult. It's not a cult. It's very different. There's a group where you continuously want that you want this group to encompass and encompass everyone that's alive. You want everyone to be a part of this group. When you don't belong to it, when you accept it, you don't belong to it, you are being ruined the whole like that whole the whole the whole ideology is being is being sucked out of it. You're normalizing something very dangerous, or normalizing a Muslim that's a Muslim which doesn't belong. What is
that? That's a creature that is not comprehensible. I don't know what that is. A Muslim doesn't belong to them. I don't know what that is.
I don't know what to do. Mutant.
I don't know what it is. What how do you deal with it?
You're Muslim, but you don't belong to them and how do you what does this mean to you? You can stamp Islam isn't what whatever, whatever you want it to be. STEM is what Allah subhanaw taala wants it to be now what I want it to be. Now what anyone wants to to be that's why this Quran is is here. Because if I say a word that goes against what the Quran is teaching, then you shut me up and you bring somebody will explain it the way it is. Very simple. Because this is what our clients saying. We're a part of a group it's not being a must.
them become a part of a community of an ummah and you and you and that's where you belong. You belong with them, and that bond that you have with them is stronger than anything else.
Is that strong today? Maybe it isn't.
Maybe we're struggling a bit it doesn't mean that
we turn our backs on it, not the solution, not the solution. The solution is to strengthen those bonds again. The best solution is to strengthen our massage and and strengthen the bonds people have with their massages and they have within their massage and that's what we do you strengthen that? A lot of work but that's what you do.
That's why three verses in a row telling us the punishments he used
and he called them Allahu Allah him. He used either been shut either, he said Sir America Yama Loon, he said subdue and Zabiullah. He said the home either upon morphine, he said Len Tonia and Hamamatsu radicals have gone now he said Holly doing via
video oh, you that's why the end of the surah you wrote everything. Your sense of unity your sense of, of community as an omega you What are you doing, going taking alliances with others? This is your group said La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul you go, you're, you're a part of His family. So Allah Azza wa sallam, and you're part of this this is the big family you're a part of now. You work with that with them. I don't like them. Who cares? It doesn't matter. I don't like most of my family doesn't make a difference. I love them I stand by that I work with them. That's it. That's your family as well. Lots of other shows for you not to like them. Who why is that even a part of the
criteria? Who even said that mattered? Doesn't it doesn't matter it never did. It never did like and love are two different things. Two different things do you I know who you like and who you that that doesn't matter. You work you work with those who Allah subhanaw taala asked you to do that. Stick with them. You stand by them you continue to support them and you
or else Listen to these verses again.
There's one more actually
that's just two more button or three even
but in the midst he says oh my basket hula hula Mian
family for no level. Can a foreigner come on the Day of Judgment all of them on the day we're all over Allah resurrects all of you back to whom Allah resurrects all of them. Yo my bathroom, Allah Jamia and faithfully for Allah who and then they go ahead and they they take an oath with God they make an oath to Allah can I believe welcome like they made oath to you? Maybe they lie to God, just like they lied to you. We're gonna know Malachi. And they feel that they they're on to something. Like they feel like they're they know that they're correct by doing it.
Understand what this means like someone? What does that mean? It means this person has lied to the point where now they believe their own lie. ever done that before. If you're a kid, you did that before every child has done that at least a couple of times, you go back and you're gonna remember some point you lie to yourself to the point where you believe you're lying. Then at some point, you're talking, you're telling the story to yourself, you're like, I never did this, right? I'm a saying this did not happen. I just I made this up at some point. And I never, I never had the guts to actually confront myself.
When did this happen?
This happens when you lose your identity, you don't know who you are anymore. That's what happens if you're not a part of an ummah, right? You don't belong. You don't know who you are. When you accept Islam, you're not a part of a nation. You don't belong to that almost you know who you are, know what you stand for, and who you belong to, then yeah, you'll get confused, and you won't know anymore. And you will try some person will come like that. And they'll swear to Allah Subhan I swear to you, I did this, and they believe themselves and just, they're lying. And they're lying. When I said when I know my shade, and they believe that they're onto something they're not. They don't
believe they're not lying that at that moment, they're not actually lying. In Donia. They lied initially. But your middle gamma, they're not lying. They're saying no, we were they believe they were they actually believe it's
no mine, actually they believe and they feel that they're on to something in a home home will carry the burden. Alas, they are the liars. Indeed. They're lying. You're lying. Let me step into them here. Let me show you where this lie began. Let me tell you what you did, that allowed this lie to begin, it's when you decided that you're going to be Muslim, but you're not really, you decided that you're not going to be a part of this group. And you acted like you weren't, but you weren't. And then you continue and you got lost and confused to the point we don't even know who you are anymore. And that's why you're standing here
wearing to me something that you believe that is not true. Because you believe your own lie, or because you're so confused. You have no identity anymore, you don't know who you are. So when you get confused to the point, we don't know who you are anymore. You can say something, believe it's true. And it's not be convinced that true when it's not. You don't know who you are. What happens like people were very good at this as human beings by the way, psychologically, this is very known. These are psychiatric, psychiatric mechanisms that we use to defend ourselves and to shield ourselves from from trauma and fear. We do this all the time as human beings that's why does deal
with insulin is very important. You learn how to de peel these layers off to take the mask off. Take the mask off the mask that you're wearing. The mask that you haven't learned that you how you present yourself to everyone
You have to keep that on when you're busy you have to people around you, obviously, but then are you able to take it off, and you're sitting with yourself, you know for sure who you are behind it. You know exactly what you've done, what you're worth,
what you're owed, what you owe, and where you stand how far ahead or behind you aren't, you know, for sure. Is that clear to you? Or do you believe the mask that you put on, you can't come to me you can deal with people with your notes and possibly have to have a mask is this social social contract that relates to the size we live in, they require you to walk around with with a certain your doctor Fula and stuff, we'll learn your hygiene you learn your oath, do you have something you have a name? Yeah, there's a couple of letters before your name, after your name and nice, big signature under it, you have an email, you belong to institution, you have run a company, you have to have, you have
to have this, this mask is who you are. But you have the ability to take it off when you go home and know who you are, actually, and look yourself in the mirror just the way you are, and hold yourself accountable and analyze yourself and be critical or do you have you lost that. And when you lose that, then you lie to yourself. And then you're multicam. And this is very, very, very likely, very, very likely. But the highest likelihood of this is if you lose your identity altogether. If you don't belong to them at all, because at least the OMA will continue to hold you to what is right and wrong. If you're a part of an OMA will, every once in a while point out that wasn't right, you
should have done that differently. You should behave this way. Not that way. Something is holding it pushing you pushing back at you, pushing back as Satan pushes you for you. But it pushes him to the right to place again, being a part of that OMA keeps you in check. If you lose that piece, then your identity gets completely distorted and it gets confused. And then you'll believe things you will believe things that aren't true. Never work. You know, people like that, you know, people who are lying to themselves you know them, you know, people who are saying things that are a lie, you know, it's a lie, just like they do but you're not gonna tell it to them because too hard. And they're
living in an illusion. Everyone knows what's going on. But then everyone, everyone knows exactly what's happening. But then but no one dares say anything because they know that it's an endless conversation. It's not going to take people anywhere. So you just let it be just, it's easier to let it go just easier. Normal tianma will come but you actually phone Allah who can I allophone and
they'll make oath to God like they made oath to you will accept Oh, no matter say they feel like they're onto something in the home home will carry on do not under the liars. They're liars. It's just they lived so long ago. That all got confused. They don't know anymore.
Yeah, it can happen that way. By the way. You can make a mistake early on.
Never hold yourself accountable for it. And then down the road. It's too late. Now you don't you don't even know that you did it. You did your system, but you can't figure it out anymore. It's too late. Yeah, that can happen. Yeah, for sure. For sure. Be very, very careful.
belonging to something belonging to an OMA belonging where you where you're continuously reminded and encouraged and get these reality checks is what's going to allow you to avoid that. Learning the deen will help you avoid that, because it will remind you that if you don't do this, if you don't hold yourself accountable, then you're not gonna get anywhere. And then you go back and you revise a little bit in your life and you start asking yourself some difficult questions and you figure out oh, my god,
I can't believe I'm still thinking this or I'm still doing this, or I never repented from that, or I never fixed that or actually still believe that.
And if we don't, then we'll come to God and it will be very, very strong in our position. No, no.
That's what I'm not. It's not here, go back. You just lied for so long, you start to believe it yourself. Doesn't mean that's okay. Doesn't mean that I exist in your world. I am and I and I took an oath on something that I thought was was correct that day that I'm not held accountable for it. Because there was a point in my life, where I where I lied, and I knew I was lying, and I never fixed it. And I knew something was wrong. I knew I was doing something incorrectly. But I ignored it. Because it wasn't my day. It was at the time, it wasn't self serving. So I left and I left and I left and I left it and it normalized things for me. And after a while I forgot completely. And I got
lost in the narrative that I've made up for myself. And then you'll know cam I come and I feel that's the truth. And it's not never was never one. So be careful. Especially if you're young, you still have time. If you're older, there's much more difficult. And if you're older, there's almost no I'm gonna say impossible things are possible is very difficult. It's very difficult when you're older to actually do this very hard. But you have to stare yourself in the mirror say for 20 years. Yeah. For 20 years, we've been lying to ourselves. How do I even go back on this? How do I fix this very hard. If you're young as well a couple of years you'll be fine. You can retract the things that

so whenever you see a med like dude you're hired Don't you see after the med there is a there's a letter with a shed on it then you know automatically it's a six count. All right, everything else is a four and okay a lot of thoughts and also we stick to a four and then only certain situations a six and really easy rule of thumb is you have to shut down the letter after the med then it's a six count right off the bat and that's what you have to do now is six
and the one I'm going to read right now is going to be only for hula EcoFin. The lien
Khattab Allahu La La lieben well, we'll slowly
so if you look at the word enter, you can see on top of it, there's this oval shape. So in our case, whenever we you see that oval and any any on any Elif in the Quran, it tells you that this Elif is not recited or it's not pronounced when you're reading continuously, and it's pronounced whenever you stop. So if you stopped you say gotta have Hola Hola, algo Lea been a full Elif, if you go on the elderly Ben Anna will Rosaleen an hour. Oh, sorry. There's no is no an hour or so he's not a full Elif, it's actually you remove the Elif altogether. And that's our citation, not always citation of the current house that by the way, so if you hear someone reading it, the elderly Ben
rosary is just a different citation. It's not they're not necessarily wrong. Obviously, if they're trying to read ours, and they did it, that would be wrong, but there's other receptors that allow for that obviously, as well in law, or we you know, disease.
So Allah subhanaw taala goes on it and he offers us a reason or reasoning of why it is that this is happening, why they're coming to milk era, and they're lying to Allah subhanaw taala, believing that there are things saying the truth, even if there are not stuff, whether it's while doing some something, take something else and covers it from all of his angles as to what meaning is completely controlled it. It has left almost nothing for it is stuck, whether it hemos Shavon, Shavon has taken control of them.
He has not
he's not inside of them. Right? They don't need exposition, these people don't need an exposition. What they need is guidance. What they need is self accountability. That's what they need. There's not an issue of possession is tucked away. That doesn't mean she can't possess them. No, it means that shape on was able to confuse them with all the West Vasa and he's been able to put blocks in every single good deed they wanted to do, and make every bad deed does seem amazing. So and they accepted that and they just went with it. And he's encompassed almost every aspect of their lives and they have completely let it go. He stuck with it and he will shape on what was the end result of
that fight and so whom they can Allah and he has caused them to completely forget any form of remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala in their lives.
That's what this is. And that's why people will come to Monkey Island a lie. Because if you remember Allah subhanho wa Taala then you will know that there's no point in putting up in putting on a show
to put on a show for people around you, but I show for the community and you're
putting on a show for Allah Subhan Allah is ridiculous if you know Allah and you remember ALLAH, then Allah sees right through you. What are you doing? What's the point? Why are you speak? Why are you? Why do you keep this mask on? When you speak to me? Why are you acting like you're something that you're not I know exactly who and what you are? What are you doing? So you continue this charade, that makes no sense if you know Allah subhanaw taala you wouldn't do it because you didn't even he knows exactly enclose everything that I've said to myself every thought that I've ever thought everything I didn't I didn't do and why I did it. There's no point
you'll keep the front up for people and you'll see you'll have a certain way of going about fine but in front of Allah you won't if you remember ALLAH, there's no point he sees right through it, there's no there's a complete waste of time, you would only keep it up if you didn't actually know Allah. Or if there is no remembrance of Allah going on inside your heart you if there's remembrance, then you will remember that he already knows. And there's no point and then you'd be honest with yourself. And that honesty will save you that honesty will will save you. It's honesty that's going to save us that ability to be honest with ourselves and what we actually are doing and why we feel
the way we feel and why we're saying these things and why we're upset with this and why we're actually doing that and why we decided to behave in this way is honesty, peace.
You come and tell me Well, that's why I do it. I can't say it's like, Oh, man. Oh, man. I just want to do it. I can say of course. Okay. All right. I don't know. How do I know I have no idea. I can be very arrogant of me to judge you and ask like I knew why you did what you did. But you do to be careful because there's no
point of doing that it Allah Allah knows exactly why things are happening and stuff whether it he will shape on
but and so home they crumble yeah and it caused them to forget the members of Allah Willa acre his boo che upon those are the ones who are the group his his was a group
doesn't even have a political meaning to it today it does. Obviously that's like the nomenclature that we have in this era is fine. But the word itself doesn't have a political affiliation as we just a group.
That's why I was up. On the day of the battle as I brought the Confederate some people came together to fight the prophet Ali. So they were in a political group. Now, after they went in, they didn't really belong together at all he just had one goal is this. In some most of them were mercenaries that were paid their husbands a group that he got his booze shape on, those are the group of the shaper and in his best shape on you who will close to the last two. Indeed, the group of the shaytaan are the ones who are going to be the losers on the Day of Judgment in a Latina you heard doing hola hola, hola, Sudha. This is similar to the A and number five at the beginning of the surah
very similar twice when surah in the Lydian, it will hurt when Allah Allah stood indeed, the ones who defy Hodeida is defiance, defy Allah and His Prophet. The first one was Kobe two they will be silenced. Here without the lien in the those ones will be the humiliated group on the Day of Judgment catch up Allahu Allah Subhana Allah has decreed in his divine wisdom and divine knowledge that only been an hour Rosalie is myself and my messengers who will be triumphant at the end of the end, those who will find success are those who are choosing to belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala and his prophets group, not the other one in Allah harkaway universe he is indeed Allah subhanaw taala
is the all strong, all potent and he's done fathomable jujitsu. So, you can see the continuation of these verses
that are pointing out this one problem which is the problem of belonging.
The Commentary on it was commentary of high severity of punishment of losing yourself of not knowing who you are anymore of ending up belonging to belong to the wrong group of being amongst the group that defy God himself and the group that will lose on the Day of Judgment this is what this is this is how this these verses I've been going this is the thought process of these of these verses is the logical continued movement of it.
At the beginning I was talking to a local man that was the mistake he decided to belong to a different group they were going to choose their alliances and loyalties with a different group other than the group that they had joined
and then all this has happened afterwards.
There's one more eye on this we're going to read together inshallah Tada and then it will kind of wrap it all up everything I tell you everything timber missile recited letter G do call me mean owner bill he will Leung mean he'll

so the two minute here if you look at them right after the med both times there's a letter with a shed on it which means both we do with our six counts and that's no that's very rare in the points only certain Bucha that we actually have that's a trivia question that comes up in

so it makes a statement subhanaw taala at the end of the Surah At the end of the sewer where he says letter G do calm and you will not find a group of people, you know when a biller he will yo Milliken who believe in Allah and the hereafter, you are doing Meinhard Allah Allah Sudha you are doing them in the share the share.
So, what is love, but in the context of the Sunnah is not really love. This goes back to what we just talked about a moment ago we were talking about toa which is the concept of alliances or loyalty or belonging or a sense or a sense of an ummah. So you were doing it here means that they have a sense of belonging with or they have loyalty or alliances with men had Allah Allah Sula, they don't you don't find a group of people who believe in Allah in the hereafter who will have that alliance or have that loyalty or have that belonging feeling with those who defy Allah and His Prophet mean those who continue to to work against the Muslims or work against Allah and His Prophet
some of us I mean,
what oh can even if these people are their fathers have been at home or their children always lie to him or their siblings. Oh actually yell at them or their tribe or family. Now they talk about setup Nuzum for this verse, obey that new genre. Hannah, do you have any you had to go? We don't have an authentic chain of narration for this story. We don't, here's why I don't narrate it. But if you go to certain books after seeing you may find it, it could have happened, I don't know. But it's not authentic. I don't see the point of talking about it wherever Aveda was cornered and by his father in the midst of battle, and he fought and he ended up taking him out and the Prophet Allah and he
were going to the Prophet Allah usados. I'm saying I How am I going to meet God with some my own father and this verse was revealed, I know in the story itself doesn't really add up because the stories have said that I've already this dad passed away my way before but so there's something missing this whole story. It lacks authenticity, authenticity, I'm only telling it to you so that you know that it's there. But it's not something that's authentic. I never use it actually to talk about this idea. This I don't believe is regarding a specific incident. This idea is generic is talking about something in general. You don't find a group of people who believe in Allah the
hereafter who will offer their alliances and their loyalty and their belonging to those who defy Allah and His prophets. It just won't regardless of who they may be, even if there are blood related relatives knowing in Islam that SOTA Rahim is extremely important knowing that keeping your the relationship of the relations of kin is extremely important Islam and I went through again, two or three weeks of just talking about that and dismissed it. But that doesn't mean that that bond trumps the bond of Islam, it never does. Nothing does. We're Muslim first. We're Muslim first. Always. And that's, I think one of the issues that the world has with with this now, if you're a Muslim, you
always Muslim first. That's the first thing you would say you identify first, and then you can put whatever else you want to put after that. Whatever nationality you come from ethnic background, doesn't matter what I do but profession,
family, go ahead. Your Muslim first being Muslim first is what will keep your family safe, your profession safe, your gnash your nationality safe, your everything else safe is being Muslim first, not the opposite. Being Muslim, personal, make sure that you will never betray that you'll never harm that you will never turn your back on those who are who are dependent upon you. That's what Muslim Muslim means. There's no reason for any group. No, there's no reason for any country or nation or, or group on the planet to be scared of those who say they're Muslim first, because its name is what protects all of that. That's what it's done is therefore, but Islam is also anti
oppression. And it's anti transgression. It's anti tyranny, it's anti anti
corruption. That's what Islam is about. And there are those who don't like that. And those who don't like that, well, they're kind of exposing themselves, aren't they by not liking that, because nothing, there's nothing not to like about that, as a Muslim, being Muslim first mean that you won't, you won't tolerate that type of stuff. And there are people who don't like that they want someone who will tolerate it. So yes, they don't want any Muslim first. But there's nothing this is, it's fine for them to say that, because that's who they are, it's not fine for you to cave. It's not fine for me or you to cave, and give up a piece of our identity and maybe bring it down one level
and make something so that they're not no, you're Muslim first, which means that you will continue to be some to carry the principles and the values of Islam, of being someone who is just a compassion as someone who refuses corruption and oppression.
And whoever doesn't like that, well.
Doesn't matter. Should it shouldn't matter. It shouldn't matter. Didn't matter. That didn't matter. Whoever doesn't like that, that shouldn't matter. Because that's not something that we should tolerate things like to begin with and personal versus saying, If you truly movement, if you don't find a group of people who believe in Allah in the Hereafter, who will go ahead and give their loyalty to those who would defy Allah and know they'll stand by
Even if their family doesn't matter, so oh we stand by the bond of Islam is always stronger. Willa acre though the cattle Buffy pulumi him on EMA and those are the ones who Allah Subhana Allah has decreed Amen within their hearts when he has had nature imagine enter that is the this is one of the pieces of evidence of Eman is that your belonging and your loyalty is to your Muslims. That's the one of the read. That's how you can that's how you can show evidence of it. Because Kathy Kulu became an email and the email is written into our hearts by Allah Himself.

This is talking I gotta there's no political affiliation yet he's talking about the concept of belonging.
