Early he was so happy he Jemaine or bad.

00:00:03--> 00:00:08

jolla tonight, we continue in need of CO SUTA Majah Dara de la.

00:00:10--> 00:00:12

from where we left off Nick last.

00:00:13--> 00:00:14

Last Halliburton

00:00:15--> 00:00:27

is the first to route within the second cluster or existing group of suicides that will be going through within this holiday this holiday I started this with path over a United Way We opened this place back in February of last year.

00:00:28--> 00:01:02

And our goal is to inshallah do Tafseer until the end of the of the Quran suddenness. These are four groups of sutras, five to a Hadid, Bucha DiVita Hareem molk to Elmo Suraj. And then from neighbor to a nurse, basically, it follows that, are there groups of suitors and the client don't follow that visit, but these ones do, it's out of convenience, and then just obviously just has four groups within it. But so this is the second group, we went from coffee or Hadid. I'm not going to go back to that anymore. I won't summarize that for you. Again, I've done that 100 times. So you can always go back and listen to those. But if you want to know what those what that group of suitors was

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

talking about, and what the point or what the

00:01:06--> 00:01:43

purposes of these students were, but this group of students from Georgia to utter Helene it's a Madani group amongst monkey one a bunch of monkey groups, meaning the from coffee, what have you all that was mucky. And then from an oil to a nurse, almost all of it is murky. If you take out the begginer, and the nozzle, the two small suits at the end, everything else is revealed in Mecca. So this, this user, or this cluster, from which I'll get to him is very specific. It's Madani group of sewers, all of them. And they're all old, late, sorry, late, many like they're all late into them at any period, they weren't early made any periods, at least for the majority of them. And that's kind

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

of the basic understanding of it.

00:01:46--> 00:02:27

And what this cluster of sutras does, it organizes the relationships within the Muslim society, or Muslim community. That's the basic theme of all these sources from which I'd like to Hareem each Surah will take an aspect of organization and focus on it a little bit differently. And obviously, every time we go to a surah, I'll point out to you what aspect of organization this tool is talking about. And certainly, as the first surah In this group will take on itself, and the aspect of organizing the relationships between Muslims, this juicer is gonna talk about not just organizing is like, well, that's everything, you know, there's Muslims and non Muslims as Muslim. And when I've

00:02:27--> 00:03:05

been there, with a bit between spouses between, there's a lot of other relationships that require organization, this one here has talks about organizing the relationship amongst peers, Muslim peers within the community. And it doesn't talk about it talks about organization, which is why this sewer lines with Ninja Agra, started out with the concept of jihad, which is or the sin of jihad, which is what men used to do in Arabia prior to Islam, where they would say to their wives, auntie, Allah, Allahu me or to me, like my mother is to me, and that's just basically a way to neither divorce her nor keep her married, it's just a way to oppress her. And, of course, you have this long, these

00:03:05--> 00:03:31

verses that talked about the punishment or the for doing that, or the explanation that is required when someone when someone does that. So this is the first piece of this, that's talking about organizations organizing between men and women, there will be no oppression and there will be punishments if that occurs. So that's the first piece of the story. And as we go along, as we you'll see today, the aspects of organization of social

00:03:33--> 00:04:07

relationships within the sorta becomes more and more complex, or it goes into more in different in different venues here, it looked at it from a man and woman perspectives, and how that's going to look like. And it pointed out that women will no longer be oppressed. And here's an example of oppression and hear how this will, here's how this will no longer be tolerated, and there'll be a punishment attached to it, if it ever happens again. And it comes in the form of a tsunami, Allahu Allah led you to God. Look, Allah indeed has heard figuratively, has heard the words of the one who can't came and disputed and will die than the one who died, that is a dispute

00:04:08--> 00:04:40

or a conversation or any discussion. dispute is probably a better term. Now that I think of it I think, I don't think I pointed that out last week, but that's a better term, honestly, there was a dispute, because I'm gonna tell you that there's something here that she didn't agree with. And the Prophet Allah usados has offered her answer that she did not feel was fulfilling, because he didn't have revelation when she when someone asks for a ruling, if he doesn't have Revelation, He doesn't speak out of line out of his thoughts, because he can't. So he said, I don't I don't have revelation on this as you continue to argue with him. And the Quran did not point out that she shouldn't have,

00:04:40--> 00:04:56

if anything, the the surah was named after her Holub infallible as someone who came in argued with him and disputed something and was commended for doing so. And not only did Is there a ruling of the Quran because she did that but Allah says I heard her

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

i Allah heard her how

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

People who live during that time can say that, that Allah subhanaw taala stated in the Quran that he listened to her Irish, obviously he hears everything apologize, he's not talking about hearing her physically or hearing her from a knowledge perspective, because we know that he is hearing her eyes. And he was saying, as you would use the term, when someone spoke to you, as I hear you,

00:05:20--> 00:05:53

meaning I'm actually I'm understanding you, I'm appreciating what you have to say, I'm agreeing with you. And that's what this song was actually saying here. And it's a very beautiful, and we went through this detail these details last week. So today, inshallah move on, we read up to the first four verses of the surah. And we'll do five and six, and hopefully, seven and eight, if we're lucky if we can get that far. But they sort of move on to a different aspect of organization. And you can be very interested or not surprised, but you'll find it interesting shows some of the topics that the suit is going to talk about in terms of organizing the relationships between Muslims within a

00:05:53--> 00:06:12

society. So the hash will be little bit different. And it will be very different in every Surah we're organized at different aspects of relationships that Muslims need to have organized for them. There's a difference between organization and good manners. So there's a lot talks about manners. So the newer also talks about manners and good good ethics

00:06:13--> 00:06:30

that it doesn't talk about ethics and manners and no it talks about organization talks about don't blame, you have to be the here are the parameters. Here's how you do things here's what's acceptable, here's what is not and starts all by saying this sort of talk started out by saying here's what's not okay

00:06:31--> 00:06:42

this type of behavior between men and women is not okay so we move on to number five so we started shallow with the trace AP citation Hey Nina shame on your body

00:06:46--> 00:06:49

Bismillah here Walkman your Rahim

00:06:54--> 00:06:56

in a lazy now you

00:06:58--> 00:07:02

do not Allah her well was to learn

00:07:09--> 00:07:45

so this if you look at it, you'll see the med cowboy hat on top of the LSU her and then you see after it on the dial you will see a shudder whenever you see a shudder after a method it's a six count, right that's reflex you don't even know you don't even need to know the name of the method. If you see a man then right after the letter with a shutdown it you know immediately is gonna be a six count everything else in the coin is a four count, at least for the recitation of Hearthstone, awesome political shelf Libya, that complex is what is there a citation that we're reading the Quran through here, as a group, you may if you if you were to go to Morocco, for example, or go to parts

00:07:45--> 00:08:17

of the subcontinent Indian subcontinent, you will find that they use other excitations while ashore called lunar, and they may have different lengths of mu, they will use different numbers. And there's 1000 ways to read the Quran. There's a lot of different rules. And obviously this is not we're not trying to learn all of them here. But we're going to take this one citation, which is the one that's most common. This is the one that if you grew up listening to either the Harlem of Medina and Mecca reciting that's what they that's what they recite, and that's what they use. And that's what the majority of the Muslim ummah today kind of has, has chosen as their preferred citation

00:08:17--> 00:08:50

house on awesome. And I do every year, at least a session on the science of art. And I advise people always to take a to attend at least once just to understand how the science works. You don't have to become a scholar of the lot, but you should understand at least the citations of the Quran. What does that mean? Where does that come from? How it works? And what are the what's the terminology that that matters for that because if you don't, you may end up being a little bit I won't say surprised.

00:08:51--> 00:09:09

You can be also a little bit bothered if you find something out at some point that you didn't understand initially. And your your comprehension of the way the Quran is is not is changed, it may bother you. So it's important for you understand how that works. Like remember and this is this is, you know, an issue of wisdom as well. I remember one of the

00:09:10--> 00:09:17

she had once came to Masjid somewhere in Damascus. I can't remember which one it was. But he had come he was a I think I think it was a

00:09:18--> 00:09:20

an Egyptian ship if I'm not correct.

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

And he recited during Surah four by specifically citation and the people who were behind it had no idea what citations were and didn't understand. And he chose one hola example we chose one that has a problem with one of them not a problem but a change of one of the letters or sort of variety. Hmm. So So diversity in Arkansas is Dino slaughter with Assad. There are people that use the scene is Dina Sirocco the scene and there's Akira that actually uses a letter that's a combo. It's a five motion medallion. So that's the word so society with his day attached to it and that's I think kind of fun Hanzo or hunt I'm not sure I don't know

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

for Finland, I forget. So in the nosy law, that's when it comes out. And he said that and msgid Yeah, and he almost went into a heart attack, it was a panic, there was like a public health safety only problem people, everything came to a complete halt, and people didn't know what to do. And of course, it comes from wisdom as an Imam, you should not only throw out into your congregation that which they are not ready in any form or manner to to actually receive, it's very important that Imam knows the level who's listening to him. And then he speaks to them based on what they can actually comprehend. Understand. And this doesn't mean that it's not condescending stuff. It's not like

00:10:35--> 00:11:08

looking to know it's a matter of knowledge. You don't come to a, for example, you don't walk into an auditorium of first year medical students, and you start talking about the different types, regimens of chemotherapy that can be given to certain types of cancer, that's a waste of no one has a DNA, they don't even know what chemo, they probably have not even heard. But we have a very vague understanding of what chemotherapy is you're talking about? No, you have to make sure the the I keep cytopenias given orally at this time of the day, and then you have no idea. It's not it's not condescending, when you decide I'm not gonna talk about that when I'm talking about something that

00:11:08--> 00:11:41

you can because you're trying to build up knowledge. So it's important that that Okay, so when we say here residing in house on awesome, and the point is that I give you a very simple and I think if you just take them for your own view of cm and you see a shirt that after it no is six letters, I do advise everybody that at some point in your life earlier, the better that you take a two week course. And that's not mean you go and attend a didactic explaining of Digi bite you sit with someone who knows how to read, and you ask them teach me how to read, just go, you know, just go crazy, just kind of rip me to shreds and tell me how I'm everything I'm doing is wrong, and learn

00:11:41--> 00:11:55

how to read, it happens to everybody, I just want to make sure that you understand as I'm gonna do with your Arab or not Arab, or you speak Arabic or not. It doesn't matter who you are. If you were not taught how to read the Quran, you sit in front of a chef, they will tell you that every single letter you're reading is wrong.

00:11:56--> 00:11:58

I recited

00:11:59--> 00:12:35

Jazza to maybe five different shoe. Five scholars. Each and every one of them when I sat in front of them told me everything you're doing is wrong and I had to go relearn everything again. Even though I wanted to tell him that you're actually your your your shift taught me? No, it's fine for you. This is how you learn you learn by accepting the fact that you don't know what you're doing. And you take the feedback in a positive so that you can learn and improve yourself. Everyone should do that find the shift take at least once in your life a couple of couple of months, you sit in the Halacha either one on one or in a group and you learn to read read you make all the mistakes they point them

00:12:35--> 00:13:07

out to you improve your citation so that when you stand in front of it, you're doing it correctly and then reciting the Quran at least to a similarly to how the prophets of Allah Allah when we recite the Quran, we can never be perfect but you try to bring yourself to a level that's reasonable, which is why I point out these sweet things. I don't have to do it because I'm hoping that maybe I'm helping some people figure out how to read a little bit more but you definitely need to take some time and do that for yourself. That's just a tangent I wanted to kind of point out so we'll continue to follow Kobe to Carmel Kobe tell the Nemean Powderly him

00:13:12--> 00:13:14

well for the Zen

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

yeah team by Hina

00:13:26--> 00:13:37

whenever you see the Med and Zelda it's a four accounts always give it four counts everything that I don't point out to six will be four well it will catch every now either boom or he in many

00:13:41--> 00:13:45

yo mama Yeah, but I thought hula hula journey

00:13:51--> 00:13:55

for you wanna beat woohoo, Bhima Emmylou.

00:14:00--> 00:14:03

For who law who want us to?

00:14:06--> 00:14:12

Well, Allahu Allah Lishi in sure he did.

00:14:17--> 00:14:55

So as commentary on the story of the lady who came in disputed with the Prophet, Allah, He has sought to ascend because of the oppression that had occurred to her from her husband. And then of course, the resolution of that. And Allah subhanaw taala explained how she was correct for doing so he heard her Subhana wa Tada. And the actual ruling that followed was in the favor of course of what she had pointed out, and that is to remove oppression. The verses that we recited right now are there to reinforce or emphasize the fact that this is the shadow of Allah subhanaw taala no oppression will be accepted which is why he says to pile on to Allah in the Lavina you heard doing

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

Allah, you had dune meaning they go against

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

or they defy. And Maha is when you're taking Hadid to someone you take Hadid to someone you take you take arms like you take a sword to them you're doing you're taking you're fighting back. So in the Ludhiana you had doing Allah Who was with those who take or defy Allah subhanaw taala is prophets in the rulings that they are giving in the teachings that they are establishing Kobe to come cubital Levine I'm in public him, they will be silenced. Just like all the people before them were silenced or they will be removed or they will be punished. The word cut has a number of different meanings in the Arabic language all of them or have some degree of either punishment or silencing or removal or

00:15:40--> 00:15:59

they will be pushed back could be to come back Kobita Lydian immutability him. Anyone who goes against all or defies Allah Subhan Allah and His Prophet the rulings that they bring, like all of the nations before that defied him will be punished in the same way. Well, cadenza in the United Indeed, Allah subhanaw taala has brought down his tent down clear.

00:16:00--> 00:16:36

Yet as in signs, right, it's not just verses and most of the time in the Quran when he says it is not referring to verses like 90% of the time, maybe there's a couple of times where it's actually written the context is clear that it's verses of the Quran. Otherwise, I just always referring to science, meaning he has the power to Allah sent for us very clear signs of the truth of what he is teaching us Subhanallah without so we shouldn't have we shouldn't have doubt in what in what Allah is teaching. We shouldn't have doubt in Allah subhanaw taala has put us rules for us in this world without caffeine, I boomerang. And for those who continue to believe in Him, they will there's a

00:16:36--> 00:16:39

humiliating punishment. This here

00:16:40--> 00:16:46

is important on many levels. The statement in the Ludhiana you heard when Allah Allah Sudha.

00:16:47--> 00:17:09

Because the Arabs didn't like the majority of these rulings. The fact of the matter was that the rulings that came and removed from men, their ability to control their wives or to control the narrative of marriage, or the narrative of relationships that they had with their spouses was very, was like ripping a band aid off

00:17:10--> 00:17:46

a sore wound, it was painful, they didn't like it. They didn't like it many different ways. And you're gonna see how a lot of the suicide was suicidal Regina talks about are things that people who are set in their ways, and people who are used to things running a certain manner. They don't they don't want it, they want something different. They want to go back to how things were before. So that's actually one of the reasons why this verse is there. Because there was a lot of negativity or a lot of objection. Not only to stuff like that, but the Prophet how to use those his method of running his country or running his group was of counsel of seeking counsel, for the lack of a better

00:17:46--> 00:18:20

word and with a democratic approach that he had out of his thoughts ever most decision making stuff outside of what it was hell, it was always a shield. Why don't you tell me what you think? What should we do here? What do people think we should do here? He always asked those questions out of the out of didn't like that. They will say, less time you're wrong. Why aren't you the Emir? Aren't you the leader? You say? Yes. Then why? Why are you asking people for their opinion? Like some of this? You have the Kaaba in the head of the tribes, they would ask him, you're gonna ask him? Why? What do you mean? Who cares what everyone else thinks. So isn't this your decision make the

00:18:20--> 00:18:24

decision, you wouldn't be a good example of guys when he was negotiating. I'll give an example that

00:18:25--> 00:19:03

when he was negotiating for a lot of fun to leave on the day of AXA on the day of hunt duck, and the fifth year Evangelia, when the property assaults on the Muslims were being raided by 10,000 Confederates He once went operator showed that they were going to betray the covenant that they had with the Muslims and open up the gates from the North. He went and he had a discussion with a tribe of around 3500 people amongst 10,000 a lot of fun and the leader was a you know that Heslin so and this guy can be bought and sold like easily all throughout his life. He was a mercenary like his whole tribe. It didn't wasn't whoever paid more he fought with them couldn't care less for the cause

00:19:03--> 00:19:38

was not something on his mind. So he was paid by by the Confederates to do this and the profit is nearly 30 baht. So he told him, how much do you want to go home? I'll give you this, I'll give you that the back and forth. They came together around between a third and a half of the dates of Medina for that year. So when once they agreed to it, he said, Okay, give me I'll go and ask us hobby. I'll go and consult with me as hot. So again, it's like consultant with why aren't you? What do you mean? Like, are you that wasn't okay with that? What do you mean, gonna consult? I thought this was a done deal. Yeah, if you're good with it, I will consult and if they're good with it, we'll get it get it

00:19:38--> 00:19:50

through. All right, it was very offended. What do you mean I have to go no, I go ask. It's not it's their wealth, their wealth. I'm giving away their wealth. I have to see make sure they're okay with me giving away their wealth. So when he went back actually, they said no.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

In the great story of Solomon was, this is why when he's one of the great Sahaba is when he was told, or he was at the end he the Prophet. The Prophet Isilon told him

00:20:00--> 00:20:31

This is what I did. What do you think you asked him? He said Allah did Allah command this? So we obey Allah us command. He said, No, there's something you like, you want us to do it for you? No, I'm doing it for you. So you're doing it for us. It's just your opinion, right? He's making sure the Allah who I know that he's not gonna say something that's going to cause him punishment. So he's asking this is not Allah's command is not your preference. It's just something you're doing for us. That yes, he said, then all he gets from me is the wrong side of my sword. Go back and tell him that if he wants to, he wants to he wants to take half of the dates of Medina when I was ambushed in a

00:20:31--> 00:21:03

cafe wouldn't give them one date without them paying for it now that I'm Muslim gonna give it to him for free, he can come and see my sword. I'll give him my sword if he wants. And the profit it is. I think it's also appreciated the strength in his position or the law. Why no, because sometimes leaders need those who stand behind them to be to show a little bit of grit, a little bit of courage and bravery. And it's important leaders in difficult moments, they need to have the right partner. They have to have the right people standing behind them to strengthen them when needed. The provider you saw some was afraid for his own people. He himself Hazleton was not had no problem fighting

00:21:03--> 00:21:08

back. But if he was afraid for the lives of the people behind him inside gave him that strength. Anyways.

00:21:09--> 00:21:12

That being said, I just want to show that there's a lot of there was a lot of

00:21:14--> 00:21:33

disappointment or upset amongst thought of what the Prophet alayhi wasallam was bringing to them in terms of the change of how things were going to be organized. And when this idea came down, and they said okay, not only is the hot haram, but if you do it, you're going to either have to do article October, or you have to fast for 60 days.

00:21:35--> 00:21:45

Now, I know someone who actually fasts for 60 days no I haven't I didn't know anyone before but now I do have to do that someone actually did it. And not for this obviously for different things, the 60 days almost impossible to do. It's very difficult, or

00:21:47--> 00:22:24

you feed 60 Mix games like $1,000 today, so it's a lot of money. And they got very upset with this. And this is taking pulling in that's why this is in the DNA will hurt doing Allah Allah, those who refuse and defy Allah and his prophet could be too they will be silenced and they will be punished just like the ones before them work. Allah gives clear signs and the disbelievers will have a humiliating punishment so what's the point I still am yeah oh my god I feel whom Allah who join me on on the day where Allah subhanaw taala will resurrect every one of you in a beautiful home be man I mean when people will be told or read back to them what it is that they did, you know, be open Be

00:22:24--> 00:22:27

mindful that he says here something that's just

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

saw of Allah who in a suit

00:22:32--> 00:22:34

Allah accounted for all of it and they forgot about it.

00:22:35--> 00:23:03

I saw hula hoop when I saw this, this piece of the verses were the right Yanni hanging it over your bed, and just reading it every night. Hello, Hola. Hola. So that is the case. For the majority of what's going to happen you're welcome if you're going to summarize he served your multicam into two words, or three words here are the three words the summary of the of judgment of the Day of Judgment will be SR Hola Hola. Hola. accounted for it all and they forgot about it.

00:23:04--> 00:23:19

The number of things that we have done the words that we have said the mistakes that we have committed the shortcomings that we fall into that we've just we do forget about all accounted for all recorded I saw Alexa. Alexa is it basically epidemiology or census?

00:23:20--> 00:23:49

And when you when you do when you do when you do a census, I saw Allah meaning Allah subhanaw taala just that he has it all the all the information, it's all there. It's all been fully accounted for. And people come on the day of judgment, and they don't remember anything. Why is he saying this because he's talking about oppression. Because what we have is or Mala is this is a type of oppression. And no matter how small the oppression is, when I was small, the amount of aggression or transgression is Allah subhanaw taala takes it very seriously. It is accounted for

00:23:50--> 00:24:27

and just because you forgot about it doesn't make it less important. And you're welcome and you'll be presented with it. And you'll be like, I don't even remember. Remember. Yeah, exactly. That's exactly the problem. He said that he is awesome. He's a collection a Muslim, where he says Rebecca you mentioned you've heard this hadith many times Robert Kelly Medina Quran Abdul. I mean, he had one in LA he the young Tina How about any of our hula hula be half Jannetty Raja Raja curry mutton hold on abdomen sobre la Helio De La Habana your yeah we have in Addis Ababa in a hurry for that how many words there are there are a servant will say a player and a servant won't even pay attention

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

that they said it.

00:24:29--> 00:24:45

And Allah subhanaw taala will elevate their status and Jana, one level upon the other. And how many words there are this servant will say that will be displeasing to Allah subhana wa Tada and they certainly won't even pay attention to and he will find himself falling into Jahannam for 70 years because of him.

00:24:46--> 00:24:58

Do something of harm and you forget that you did it because it was not relevant to you like it was just a comment or you're a gesture or a facial expression.

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

was a comment you made on

00:25:02--> 00:25:05

Facebook while while on the toilet at some point,

00:25:06--> 00:25:17

it was something something you said to someone in passing or a smirk that you gave someone when they said something silly and just not some active of complete, just very milder.

00:25:19--> 00:25:44

No simple, it's just a simple a simple offense something that's something that nothing big nothing huge didn't, didn't take someone's inheritance or you know, murder somebody or steal their car, they just something simple, so simple of harm that you don't pay attention to. And they come to MLK, and they find themselves falling into Johanna for 70 years, this is just how long they're falling for. It's not how long they're gonna stay there. It's just until they reach where they need to be. So it'd be

00:25:45--> 00:26:09

the equivalent of their lifetime when they go to builder. And that's what your milk jam is. I saw hula who went to school. He's accounted for everything. Subhanallah what died and when you forgotten about it, and you'll remind us here's, here's, here's what you said is what you did. Here's how you behaved. And here's the harm that you inflicted on fallen. Here's how you were careless about your your remarks and your words and your way you treated people and you harm someone.

00:26:10--> 00:26:42

Left someone with a scar, you stop someone with sadness or with fear. Be careful, be careful. Careful what you say and how you be careful what your what you do affects other people. Because sometimes you can affect someone negatively not even notice. Forget about it. Imagine that you're Muslim, you're standing there. And they say, Oh, you see all these guys like I'm sure this is not mine. Like I know the bad things I've done. I don't know what were all these say, from? Where's the melodica? Who were writing all this stuff coming? What is this? I didn't do this. I know what I've done. What is all this? And then they say, Well, this day you said that one thing and I said that?

00:26:42--> 00:27:13

Yeah. Who do I say to Funan? Who's Poulin? I've never even met this person. Yeah, you forgot you forgot. It wasn't an important interaction. It was not interaction that you cared about. It's nothing that you thought of you completely forgot about it right after, because it didn't mean anything to you. But it meant a lot to that other person. It harmed them. It hurt them. It caused them pain. It was an oppression. It was an act of transgression. I saw hula hula winter. So that's why this is here. You think it's simpler? If it is simple to do a press someone? It's simple to say Antion Erykah Badu me and put her in a position where she has no way out you think is simple? No,

00:27:13--> 00:27:27

it's not. No, it's not. No, you're going to pay for this. If you don't like it know that you'll know piano you'll come and he'll remind you and you'll forget your by then you've forgotten about it. Well, if you think about it, what exactly do you remember from your past life? If you're like in your 50s? Or 60s Or 70s? What do you remember?

00:27:28--> 00:27:30

What you did in your 30s?

00:27:31--> 00:27:35

Well, now you're talking about I'm not gonna go back to your 20s What do you remember what you did in your 30s?

00:27:37--> 00:28:11

is supposed to matter. Right? When your 30s Anything to a certain degree that should matter. You barely remember anything. You remember every gesture, every word, everything you did, I saw Allah but Allah does. Allah has full full account of all of this full record of everything we brought forward. And you'll stand there wondering I don't remember any of this. Yeah, sorry. here's the here's the book. Here's the documentation. Here take a look at it. We have it all on tape. Watch. See if you can jog your memory deep it refreshes your memory for you when it does like Yeah, remember? Yeah, well, sorry. That mattered that actually mattered. It did. The way you behaved

00:28:11--> 00:28:52

mattered because it left to you don't find this heaviness in the wordings of the words of the verses of the Quran. Unless there's oppression attached to it. Follow the following You should follow in the Quran. When Allah subhanaw taala uses heavy wording. Regarding punishment. You always find it attached to an act of of harm, an act of offending someone else whenever it's regarding disbelief and in his himself subhanho wa Taala or refusing of a ritual or or straying away or something. You always find Toba right there. You always find Toba some right? Right in the middle of it somewhere like that Allah subhanaw taala inserted right in the middle, you'll find towball was everywhere. And

00:28:52--> 00:29:24

then when it comes to oppression, or he or he talks about in a way where there's a way but when it was oppression, you find a much heavier, like the wordings are much heavier, just much more daunting. You read it, you're wondering what did this person do? Well, why? Because once you crossed the line of human harm, you're on your own. It's a red line, what's your call? I said, I have nothing for you. Probably 35% of time that I spend with people. They're asking me what they should do for a mistake that they made in the past towards someone else? And my answer is the same. I have no idea. I have no idea. Will I be forgiven? I don't know. Is this enough? I don't know. Should I do

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

more? I don't know. I don't know. No one does. And anyone who says that they do are lying to you because they don't know. See, I can tell you what you should do when you when you miss a prayer or you don't faster because these are things between you and Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala I don't have a rock in your ledger that Allah, if we didn't send he would have created people who would sin so that you could forgive them because he wants to forgive you. Subhanallah that's what he wants to do. That's what he wants to do. No living human being wants to forgive anybody. No living functional human being wants to forgive. We will. We don't want to but we will. We don't want to let you cross

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

The cross the line

00:30:00--> 00:30:15

Human harm, you have to fix it, Allah Subhan Allah will forgive you his piece, no problem. He told you don't depress, and you're pressed. So you owe him something, you sin, he'll forgive that piece, but the act of oppression that harm someone else, you have to figure out a way to fix it between you and that person.

00:30:16--> 00:30:18

How are you going to fix it? What are you going to do?

00:30:19--> 00:30:51

With it? What if you, what do you do if you take someone's wealth, and you hold on to it for 10 years and it bankrupts them and ruins them? And then you take all your and give it back? But what about the 10 years? How do you give me that back? Give me 10 years back, can you fix some of that trajectory of my life? You can't there's nothing you think you can do. There's certain acts of oppression that you can't fix anymore. You murder somebody and then what? What are you gonna do? So you're sorry, okay, fine. You repent your bed. So what's the guy's dead? You got bring him back. It's not like if we repent there, but Allah resurrects them again, then gives them life again,

00:30:51--> 00:31:03

they're gone. You can fix this mistake anymore. So I don't know. I don't know how to fix it. No one does. You're just gonna have to try your best. And it goes for everything. Whether it's gossip, whether it's, I mean, whatever it is.

00:31:04--> 00:31:18

Whatever it is, I get mostly is gossip. By the way. The question is, I guess I'm Dylan. Rarely does someone come and say I stole someone's car or something. I think I haven't gotten that. Yeah, seriously, just gossip. Even gossip? Like I don't know. I don't know. You talked to Why did you why did you do it?

00:31:19--> 00:31:27

Why did you do Why did you sit in a position is talk about someone negatively publicly? Why did you do that? Don't you know what's wrong? You didn't I don't know what to tell you.

00:31:28--> 00:32:03

You're gonna have to figure it out. You have to go back and sit in same group and correct and repent and give sadaqa on their behalf and I don't know, because you crossed the line, which is why these verses are so heavy, but he's white in the Lydian Have you heard doing hola hola, hola. Pseudo. He used that word to describe someone who refuses these this ruling. You refuses the ruling of the hub okay, then you are defying god you're in war with him, your your bearing arm against Allah, and you will be silenced and punished. Just like the people before you. You have all the clear signs. And the disbelievers will have a humiliating punishment on the Day of Judgment. When you're resurrected.

00:32:03--> 00:32:07

Allah will ask you and show you what you did. And you'll act like you've forgotten it but he didn't

00:32:08--> 00:32:18

Subhanallah he didn't actually also comforting just so you know, this is not all fear. Very comforting. I saw hola all recorded. You will forget about anything.

00:32:19--> 00:32:55

That you've been mistreated, that you've done your best today I saw Hola. It's all there. No worry. Nothing will be forgotten. Nothing will be overlooked. Very comforting to know that's all being recorded. And that your pain and your suffering and your difficulties you went through are not going to be forgotten. just dissolve into the nothingness of this world is like it never happened and you just walked you just spent your life with agony you used to sleep for nothing. No. Saw Allah Allah subhanaw taala has recorded all of it when so many people forgot to forgot. Okay, let people forget doesn't matter. Did you do well, did you give for a long time and people never really showed you any

00:32:55--> 00:33:32

appreciation. And then at the end, you felt like you got cheated out of your life because you spent so much of your life just working to serve them and help them and stand by them and they never ever cared at the end of it. You feel like that your life was a waste if you took care of your children or took care of your nephews or took care of of your friends or whatever it is that you did in your life and you and you dedicated so much time to try and help people and at the end, you got nothing in it. Don't worry, I saw a hula hoop when they forgot it. But Allah didn't record it. Don't worry, don't worry, it's all there. It's all there. Don't worry about you being able to continue your path

00:33:32--> 00:33:56

till the end. That's what you need to worry about. Don't worry about whether people are acknowledging you or appreciating you're paying attention to you're noticing that you're there or not. As long as you're doing your best and then people get upset like I've spent all my life serving them and they did nothing. So I saw hula hula wanna see what's the big deal? They forgot a lot didn't Allah has account of all of it and they forgot about it. Some people forget about it and dunya before

00:33:58--> 00:34:01

this is talking about those who forget on the Day of Judgment, so people forget it and dunya

00:34:03--> 00:34:05

children are pretty good at doing their own thing.

00:34:06--> 00:34:06

regret doing that.

00:34:08--> 00:34:10

Their parents are very good.

00:34:11--> 00:34:31

But Allah subhanaw, taala, Sahoo and so on all recorded every moment if you think about it, that's really why we do the old theme of video and that's where it comes from. He records every single moment your parent that's out with you and took care of you every moment. That's impossible. 10 years at least if 15 years. Some of us is like 25 years

00:34:33--> 00:34:43

old and people don't leave their parents basements anymore. 15 years of living with 15 years he is taking he's recording 15 years of him take of them taking care of you. What are you going to do?

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

To prepare this? You have nothing you have nothing? We have nothing?

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

We have nothing we have nothing to offer 15 years of them doing it. What are we what are you gonna talk about? I can't even get through the first nine months when it wasn't even a thing yet. Just the nine months over change.

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

carrying me around I can't I can't even prepare you that forget about the years that came later. So low when a suit was scary. Oh you you don't like how they spoke to you

00:35:10--> 00:35:13

see how you're gonna like your middle piano when he saw who and you forgotten

00:35:15--> 00:35:26

when he shows you here's here show me how you repeat all this you wouldn't have been a thing wouldn't have been alive you'd have no life at all without all this show me how you showed when you do give them a gift.

00:35:27--> 00:36:00

What do you do show up for lunch? But you went to be fed again. You came to dinner that they cooked for you like a kettlebell is like a lasagna that you really that you're accepted to come and eat at their home the food that they cook for you IG IG well how we are and how we think, but that's why this is so I saw hula who was well Allahu Allah coolish alien Shaheed, this is where he uses either his name is not using the Quran more than four times it's a very, very specific use you find a suitable range here and once the earlier parts of the Quran and Allah upon everything is witness.

00:36:02--> 00:36:39

He is witnessing something even if it was any word because he and Eileen would have worked for us as well. We understand it but no this is much more beautiful. It's much more profound that he used IUE This is everything that's happening he is witnessing it Subhana wa Tada this is just to bring close the idea that as is going on he is witnessing it's not like it's being someone else's recording it and he will review it later no no I as it is happening. He is witnessing it subhanho wa Taala he is there with you in the moment as you're gonna see in a moment in the verse we're gonna read he's with you as it happens to be very careful Alright, so let's recite the number seven that comes next item

00:36:39--> 00:36:45

total and Allah Hi yah Lemuel Murphy's de wormer phenol

00:36:53--> 00:37:01

my Yakou mean Nigeria worth setting in hurrah the room

00:37:08--> 00:37:13

while home setting in was de su home

00:37:18--> 00:37:20


00:37:23--> 00:37:24


00:37:32--> 00:37:40

while back Phil Edie who whom a good one

00:37:47--> 00:37:53

maluna bt woohoo. Dima, Annie Lou young woman

00:38:02--> 00:38:07

in nulla, have equally che in early in.

00:38:12--> 00:38:50

So to add to the verses, we just recited Allah subhanaw taala as an another verse to focus on, which is going to be a beautiful transition to the verse that's going to come next. So he says, I'm Tara, do you not know or do you not see and hear seeing is more or less figurative than it is physical? Do you not see that Allah subhanaw taala knows all that within the cosmos on Earth? And I'm Tara and Allah. Yeah, let me give you some Allah to map out everything up and down, you know, subhanaw taala. You, you. And that means you have contemplated the idea of God, you understand who the Supreme Creator is Jalaja Lu, and you've spent time to understand what attributes he has. And you've come to

00:38:50--> 00:39:28

the conclusion that Allah Allah and Allah, and he is the omniscience and he knows all that which is into the cosmos on the earth, and nothing is, is hidden from him subpoena with that, and that is the conclusion that you will come to if you believe in a God, it is impossible for you to believe in a deity in a supreme power in a God and believe that that deity or supreme power, or God is not omniscience. If you do, then I will tell you there is no point in you worshiping him. Like if you believe in a God and that God is not omniscience, don't waste your time. It's not worth your time to worship. Because if they're not omniscience, then they're not really God. If, because if you don't

00:39:28--> 00:39:59

know what's happening, if there's things that you are ignorant of, that means that your weakness, and if you don't know what's coming next, then there's always a possibility that you are beaten, because you don't know what's coming next, right? The reason that I am weak, all of my anxieties and fears in this life are rooted in the fact that I don't know what's coming next. I don't know. I don't know what the future of myself is, and the future of my spouse of my children of my parents. I don't know how long we're going to live, how healthy we're going to be whether I'm going to be able to reach a milestone or not.

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

Whether I'm going to be able to achieve a goal I don't know. And because I don't know that is something that you worry about, you're always trying to think I'm going to able to do this and I'm going to make it that far I may not.

00:40:11--> 00:40:48

Ignorance is the weakness. So if you believe in a God, obviously the beauty of what Allah subhanaw taala puts in the Quran and the paradigm of Allah subhanaw taala that we have Islamically is unique. It is profound, and there is no there's no paradigm is similar to it within any other faith. But for you not to believe that his omniscience basically means you don't believe in a God like there's no there's no point. That's why he says I'm Tara and do not say that. Of course I see. Or else I would not believe anything to begin with. Of course I do. So it's pretty clear. It's a conclusion that you would make, make quite simplistically, Maya corn woman, Nigel, Nigel, is secret counsel,

00:40:50--> 00:41:26

or secret discussions. That's what Najwa is. Maya Kuhlman. Najwa, Fela 13. In law, Robert home, there is no time where a secret counsel is happening between three people except Allah subhanaw taala is the fourth and this is not about sequence or numbers me but he's trying to England mystically in Arabic what it means is that Allah subhanaw taala is present with them, is he present physically jujitsu? No, because the concept of physical presence does not apply to Allah subhanaw taala to begin with, the word physical exists, because space is how we define is is the mean through how we through how we define existence. So when you say something's physical, then you are

00:41:26--> 00:41:44

suggesting that it exists within the the constructs the construct of space, and Allah subhanaw. Taala is not defined by space. So to say physical about Allah subhanaw taala is nonsense. It doesn't mean anything. There's no, there's no way to actually use that term. Because you're suggesting when you say that, by the way, that he is also

00:41:46--> 00:42:20

contained by space, which is contained by space, then why worship God, worship space, space seems to be the stronger elements here because it's containing God, anything that contains the supreme power is much more powerful than itself. So they say to say something as physical makes no sense. So here he's talking about what is he? What is he using, he's talking about, in his knowledge, he started the verse with it to end the verse with it, he'll leave really no room for doubt or discussion on what he's talking about. So Maya Kuhlman, Najwa, there will be no situation where there is secret counsel, three, except Allah is the fourth, whatever comes within or five, except Allah is the

00:42:20--> 00:42:32

sixth, whatever, then I'm in Vedic and nothing less than that. So 211 and 101 x naught or more ill, well who am I? Who am I in America, except Allah is with them, wherever they may be.

00:42:33--> 00:42:41

How in Allah, be cliche in Alabama at the end of the verse, indeed, Allah is ambitious. He has knowledge of everything, it's with his knowledge.

00:42:42--> 00:42:50

But then, in the midst of that, before that, he says, he says, the piece that this guy is there to serve, he says, don't make a big go home, remind me to do milk.

00:42:51--> 00:43:26

And then he will recite to them or show them or tell them about all that, which they did on the Day of Judgment. Again, not at that point, everything that you say that you do is going to be is recorded that will be brought back to you. But also all the things that you say that you think no one's hearing, all the things that you are sharing with people they think no one's hearing and no one and it's not harming anyone. You know, he's hearing it Subhan Allah Tala, he's taking care to record is record recording it is taking being taken account for and he's going to bring back a recite to you on the Day of Judgment. And indeed, he has the omniscience subhanaw taala.

00:43:27--> 00:43:58

Why is he talking about Nigeria because the 123 verses that are going to follow I'm going to talk about another aspect of organization of society, which is the problem of Nigeria, recite the first and I'll explain to you why this matters. I think we have Yes, we have 20 minutes perfect to explain to you why this matters. Because you may think this is just an issue of people. We sometimes reduce this verse to a very simplistic understanding of three people sitting and two people talking in third person not talking. That's the lack of manners. No, no. It is talking about something much more complex than that. So let me recite it for you and they'll be I'll explain inshallah. I'm

00:43:58--> 00:44:03

terrible ILA Lavina new and in Najwa.

00:44:08--> 00:44:12

Lola you IV Munna law who Beeman alcool

00:45:17--> 00:45:24

how spoon Jahan Nam we are slowly gonna have a big sell mercy

00:45:31--> 00:46:02

okay Hola Mundo la isla Lavina Newhall and in Nigeria. Do you not see the people who were told not to engage in secret council and the mayor or Dona Emanuel who I know and they go back and they commit that which they were told not to commit, which is secret counsel. What is this talking about? This is not talking about and this is my understanding of the eye and I'm not alone obviously they've been I should have pointed out in his turf students what a mind boggling rise he also says and

00:46:03--> 00:46:40

and is what is the McSherry also alluded to in Kashif that this is not just referring to the simple act of meeting me and brother Muhammad, and brother Hatfield sitting and then I and brother Highfields, we start talking in Hamburg feels left out. So his heart is all broken now and he feels sad. So we shouldn't do that not to harm his hurt his feelings, even though that is very much a an important part of what Allah of Islam. So you don't do that. And I'm not saying that it's okay to do that. No, it's not okay to do that. But that's not what this verse in my understanding actually is talking about. Specifically, no, this is talking about the fatal sin of there being some form of

00:46:40--> 00:47:16

organization within a society. And then after people who are making decisions decide something, they break off into small groups that do secret counsel, and come up with their own ideas about what was talked about. And they break all of the rules and all of the decisions that were made before and they ruin any progress that was possible from the earlier decision making process that happened. This is what this is talking about. Because that's the example that this idea was addressing during the time of the Prophet It is awesome to begin with. This is the issue no one in Nigeria tomorrow don't want to wait and Jonah and then they do secret counsel, believe me and it's sinful we're gonna

00:47:16--> 00:47:48

do it. And there's aggression. Well, mostly I could pursue and is and is defying and just obeying the Prophet Allah you saw to Westerdam his teachings. What is the idea or go when they come to a yoga? They begin talking to me, man, I'm Yohei Capitol Hill with something that Allah subhanaw taala did not teach them to say, meaning they're changing what was actually agreed upon to begin with. And when they're told well, what was the problem if this was a problem, we should have known if you unfussy him they say to themselves, Lola as the moon Allah will be man upon what does it Allah subhanaw taala punish us if we're wrong? If we're wrong, why might I be punished? There's a really

00:47:48--> 00:48:19

stupid argument to make. Well, if I was wrong, then I must be receive a punishment at some point. No. High School home Jahannam was the answer. No, the there's no punishment needed hospital mean the only thing needed. That's what I suppose that's why we say has to be Allah. When am I using all that I need? That's what it means. So when they said Lola, who are the people in Allah who we might not fool, Lola here means if it wasn't for the fact that Allah subhanaw taala would just punish us for what we said. Meaning if he just did that, then we would know we were wrong. But he never punished us though. I'm gonna take that as a sign that I am not wrong. So the answer from Allah is hospital

00:48:19--> 00:48:27

home, Johanna? No, the only punishment you need is Johanna, you're slowing down when you when you are forced to enter, it will be extended mostly. And it is the worst ending or the worst destination in

00:48:28--> 00:49:01

this area. And to continue, which we're going to read and show next week in a bit more detail. Maybe you have done today. I don't know if we do we'll try and do them is talking about the problem of secret counsel. That's what Nigeria actually is used for. And it's not talking about two people who are just chatting because if I take my brother and we go sit and we, brother most women are talking. This is not haram. I can't Well, I say Oh, I can't speak to you because there's other people in the room we have to go no we can talk we can talk is regarding when when you ruin the effort of a group.

00:49:02--> 00:49:38

And if you don't know what I'm talking about, it's because Allah subhanho wa Taala has shown an aspect of Ebola to you. And you have not been on boards or parts of large committees, and you're not trying to run anything functional in your layout. But once you do you understand what I'm talking about. When people come together, and they try to decide and get something done. And they they do that and once you're done, you end up having these small little pockets. In small pockets. We talked about it we agreed to do something and then we must be dispersed. Now you have a small pockets starting to begin. People who are going to sit and have secret counsel and talk amongst themselves

00:49:38--> 00:50:00

differently from what they were talking once the group and they go against what the group was actually agreeing to do. And this just causes if you want to ruin anything in the world, just do it that way. You want to do anything when you're doing something, just go get on a board and you start just start a small group size group and just watch. Watch the stars fall and watch the roof come down everything everything is ruined because

00:50:00--> 00:50:33

This is how you This is how you decide to disrupt. Here's how you This is how you disrupt a process, a process that is that requires some form of drama, some form of openness, some form of proper, a proper discussion that requires everyone to speak their mind, within the group and allow everyone to this is what this is talking about. Mr. He's not talking about these small little, as important as they are as important as they are this talking about an issue. That's what this whole just is talking about organization, you'll see this theme. This theme will be very simple for you you'll see in every student is talking about bigger aspects of politics and aspects of, of structure and

00:50:33--> 00:50:54

aspects of institutionalizing things and making them and giving them the proper process to make him work. He's talking about organizing people's movements within within societies. If you just go to the next page in the sutra, you'll see there's organization of the Prophet he was on time in terms of how people are going to access him for for counseling and for reason. So this is not talking about just people chatting. It's talking about a problem.

00:50:55--> 00:51:31

And if you look at the verse LM tele Dena Newhall on individual, you see that the how the verse begins there first begins by saying you see the people were told not to engage in secret counsel? And my answer is almost like, No, I didn't where it was that made. I don't see how it was that when was not made haram. If you look at the verses, nowhere before this idea was it pointed out that this is not something you're allowed to do. So but that is kind of saying that it already was. So it's giving you context that this act was already told people were told don't do this. And they did it anyway. So now the Quran is coming to address it again, because of the harmful effects it's having.

00:51:31--> 00:51:34

Because when people do this, and I've seen this so many times,

00:51:35--> 00:52:14

like, here's why I hate the anti gay when it comes to the politics of things. I'm not good at this. As you can probably tell, I'm not very good at Yanni, being a part of any committee or board does vary. But the reason is that people sit, they talk, they agree, and they break off. And within that break off, people start to lobby, and they start to talk and this to me is never negative or positive. There's never a break off. Amazing meeting today. My brother Elisa wasn't a great how I know it's always like, Did you hear what he said? Did you see how he spoke, you see what she was doing? You see, it's always negative. It's always sinful, or Diwan, or aggression, or mazziotta. Or

00:52:14--> 00:52:43

breaking what was agreed upon meaning disobeying the law violates one's wording himself. It's always that with Agia, Waka yoka, now they use the if you go back to the diversity of the separatists, if I see that guy, just take the Orthodox approach will point out the example of three people talking or two people talking in the third person out. And I'll give you the example of when the Kitab will come into Asia with a joke Uh huh. Yo, curry man, I know how you can be Hitler, they come to you. And they give their service to you in a way that Allah did not tell them to do. So they don't say say I'm Anakin. They say, a psalm an acorn, which means a policeman upon you or something negative

00:52:43--> 00:53:14

in the profit, I would not answer them. Or they will come and say I'm so behind or whatever, something they would not give the proper. And all that is true. And I'm not even I'm not even I'm not disputing that anyway. But I'm looking at this is a little bit I'm taking a step back and looking at this idea from from a thematic perspective, the theme of the sutra is organizing people's relationships. And this if you look at this guy, and the two when the two that come later, this was talking about, he's talking about the problem of what this is the problem of secret counsel, the problem of Nigeria is that is that Nigeria? What it does is it ruins the ability for people to

00:53:14--> 00:53:45

actually be productive for groups to get something done. That's what it does. It completely cripples it. it cripples it. When we're sitting in a meeting and we're talking, and someone's not going to say something, they're gonna wait for the meeting to be done to go break off with one or two people. And they'll talk about that. And they will build a narrative that is different than the narrative that was agreed upon in the group. And that's how you sync any ship. As I was saying, that's why we don't do very well. If you sit around wondering why is it that our Muslim institutions don't work? Well, there you go. I have just given you the

00:53:47--> 00:54:10

I just answered your question. That's, that's why that's why everyone, every single group is exactly what happens all the time. People meet and then their their break off meetings, the meetings that happen after the meeting, the meetings that never there's nothing There's rarely anything good and what happens with Agile when they come to you afterwards. Hey yoka the millennial Hayek availa.

00:54:11--> 00:54:29

So are you gonna take us symbolically as they say to you that we should they don't have the same greetings that Allah taught them so not saying they come with a different face and different mentality or they come in the break or the change in the Hey, it doesn't always just doesn't necessarily only mean to greet also means to approach or to say that to speak or to to address

00:54:31--> 00:54:41

here is not only just to Greece also to address with Angelica yoga, the address you might know how you gotta be loud, without which Allah subhanaw taala did not teach them to do which is sticking with the Jamar we're staying with the group.

00:54:44--> 00:55:00

And then their answer we're following if you want to see him when Allah who might not but why aren't we being punished for wrong that's never a good argument for why things just because you're not being punished for something that is that you're doing doesn't mean that's not wrong. No, some punishments will come as that Allah someone pointed out hospital room

00:55:00--> 00:55:10

Janna, very heavy. I need you to read this. I know this is heavy stuff. But the answer to me has become Jana. And all you need is John. And that's what's waiting for you. We didn't know.

00:55:11--> 00:55:48

He was just a little bit of secret counsel, yeah, secret counsel that ruin the ability of your community to actually function. To move forward, this is not a joke. This is not this cannot be taken lightly. If you're in a position of, if you have an amount, if you're paying an amount, and somehow you are entrusted with something, you're in a position of control, you have some decision making power of some sort. And your decisions that you will make are going to affect the the community that you're a part of, or affect people around, you be very careful, very, very careful how you behave and what you do. Because this is you're going to be held accountable for this. And if

00:55:48--> 00:55:54

you don't do this appropriately, then there's punishment attached to it. And because of that, being in

00:55:55--> 00:56:22

places of leadership, being in positions of, of leadership and authority, in his time, his look is is not frowned upon. But as you're cautioned a lot, be careful. You want to come and stand every wants to be an ima and understand what it is to stand in front of you. You're carrying everyone behind you, you carry the whole show, you carry everything, you're responsible for everything, you'll be asked about this whole thing, no matter what goes wrong, you just pray and leave the President stands up here he has to carry that

00:56:24--> 00:56:41

the profit is obviously if you knew what came or at least smoko fund one of the Sahaba that if you knew what was what got into MMA, you would you would fight not to beat not to ever do it. Like the people will be shoving each other not to be forced to become ima because of of the responsibility that that's associated with it.

00:56:42--> 00:57:19

The simple thing here, which is secret counsel, yeah, it can ruin things, it can ruin things pretty badly. I've seen it a million times and if you've been a part of any former board or committee, you know that it does too, because there are ways to get things done and there are ways to ruin the progress that needs to happen. I think that to me, this is a in that sense, this is extremely, extremely meaningful, and extremely important. The concept of lobbying within smaller within within groups or within decision making bodies or within societies where people are working together, watch out from breaking off within the society and making your own little group and talking and filling it

00:57:19--> 00:57:57

with negativity and it exists even outside of boards and boards and decision making groups within societies you find these small little pockets, pockets of people who gather and talk outside of what the community is doing. And it's all negative. Again, none of this is what it is very you see the first after it's gonna say I'm gonna do it do it positively or don't do it at all. Because rarely is is ever positive people gather together and say oh my shoulder Do you see how lol mashallah the masjid amazing, man even better? Yeah, all the massage are just amazing. No, rarely do people sit together and start saying positive things. It's always the negative stuff. It's not in a productive

00:57:57--> 00:58:21

way. It's now okay, what can we do? It's always the dojo, aka yo columella know how you go behavior. It's always that they come to you and they say to you that which Allah did not address you with and they say well if you're wrong you will be punished No, that's not how this works. Let's just like one more if and I think we have time for one more. Yeah, you're loving Manu either 10 j two

00:58:28--> 00:58:34

but that j will be if me well oh there were any one Marcia to Vasu

00:58:41--> 00:58:44

what Ana Jaya will be building what up

00:58:48--> 00:58:54

what up hello hello Eddie ELA here to show rune

00:58:59--> 00:59:03

in Amman nigerois Amina shape on

00:59:08--> 00:59:11

Leah Lavina Minh

00:59:15--> 00:59:19

while asapbio Bo re Himanshi

00:59:25--> 00:59:32

so we're going to mend with a letter after that as I shut down as you know as a six count in the evening Neela

00:59:35--> 00:59:40

while Allah He failure to work early me noon

00:59:45--> 00:59:59

versus all those who will believe either XR jatim. If you must have secret counsel and break off and speak amongst each other. Find out if and then don't make make sure that your secret counsel is not have issues of ism of sin or Diwan or aggression.

01:00:00--> 01:00:26

or Marcia tip was soon disobedience of the profanity. So some of these teachings, what the nacho but make sure that it is about liability with tequila, that you're doing it to increase your bill. Increased your excellence in what you're doing, making you're doing whatever you're doing trying to excel in it and do it better what tequila and that is filled with mindfulness of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you're going to have manager Najwa then this natural amongst you should be focused on bidding on excellence or a tequila or mindfulness of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada

01:00:28--> 01:01:05

What toquilla Li Li Tasha rune and be mindful of Allah, whom you will all be resurrected towards on the Day of Judgment. In naman Najwa. He said exclusively what Najwa is Munish day upon it comes from safeline this is what he explains to pinit which is that if you have to do it, try it. Make sure it's based on excellence and Taqwa. But in general, Ninja was always from Shavon. Leah has una leadin ermine to bring nothing but sorrow and agony doesn't bring sorrow and agony to the people who believe what I just said a lottery hymn sheet and in lebih the law it will not harm them with anything except what Allah subhanaw taala has declared or decree that it will harm them by well and

01:01:05--> 01:01:42

Allah He fell yet our killing me known and upon Allah, all believers must show to our cool and trust in Allah subhanaw taala. And what this is saying basically, is that these, the secret counsel that happens within societies, that is almost never positive, if you're going to do it, as a believer, if you're going to do it, make sure it's positive, make sure that you're trying to achieve excellence with it, make sure that you're mindful of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Because generally speaking, what he's saying is that this type of counsel is never positive, its sources shape line. And it's always going to bring some degree of agony or suffering or sadness to the believers, it doesn't harm us. At

01:01:42--> 01:02:10

the end, the last piece of the idea is to tell us that look, is not there to nothing will harm you except the philosopher puncta decrees that it will. So don't worry about it, you're trying to do something, there's always going to be people we're going to be doing this. Like as you try to build something and run something, it's always gonna be people who are going to be acting in that way, small pockets that are performing in Nigeria, that is negative that is filled with aggression that is filled with with Yanni with disobedience filled with sin, you can't stop it, it won't harm you accept the philosopher decrees first adore and trust in Allah trust in Allah as you tried to do the

01:02:10--> 01:02:46

best you can with what you with what you have. But he's trying to teach us a lesson here. Subhana wa Tada. Now it was not, it's not healthy. What needs to be said shouldn't be said openly, shouldn't be said within the proper process for it. It should not be closet talk, we should not be something that's happening in the background where we have no idea what people actually think. Because whenever people think is happening in small little pockets that we have no idea about. And then once the anger becomes high enough, it surfaces and always surfaces in a big kaboom. And it surfaces in a way where it's we're harms the whole group and harms society and brings bad reputation. And it

01:02:46--> 01:03:05

brings bad feelings to everyone. And it causes bad blood amongst Muslims, there's no positivity in it, there's no positivity in it. And that requires for us to be properly organized. And for us to actually work as work together in in a process that that's appropriate. Najwa has never has never helped us. It never has I

01:03:07--> 01:03:20

don't know how to emphasize this any more than I already have. But if you show you the younger brothers and sisters who are here, as you go through life, and you are brought on to be a part of a board or a committee or

01:03:21--> 01:03:30

some some authoritative body of people where you're gonna make decisions of some sort, make sure that these aisles are clear to you.

01:03:32--> 01:04:02

The poisonous action of Najwa where you lobby, and you have the secret little counseling. Anyone who's been on board has done it at least once. And you know that it was not, that was not a healthy discussion. And that helped the process that only filled your heart with with upset and just you're disgruntled towards the people that you're working with. And what should happen is not that what's the opposite here? He's telling you not to do secret counsel, though, what type of counsel should you be doing? Simon tried to say, if you say don't do natural, then what you do?

01:04:04--> 01:04:10

Right, because the opposite you do it you do interrupt the proper setting where people are listening. So you don't say it clearly.

01:04:12--> 01:04:40

Because that will meet that means she when I speak to Brother Muhammad on our own, I don't have to have filters. I can just tell him whatever I want. If I'm if I'm really upset, I'll just I'll just start complaining. I'll just rant you'll have to listen to me for but it's my rant I'm done. But if I'm going to actually bring this topic to the public, I can't just sit in rent and I can just say whatever comes to mind, I have to actually filter through stuff, how to actually say things in a manner that works. So it doesn't allow for a lot of anger. It doesn't allow for a lot of hatred doesn't allow for a lot. It doesn't allow for that when we do it appropriately. When small groups

01:04:40--> 01:04:46

gather and they feed on each other and they feed on the hate and they feed on the negativity and they feed on all this.

01:04:47--> 01:04:59

They ruin the not only do they ruin their ability to participate, they ruin the group's ability to move forward because that's not how this was supposed to be shared. This should have happened within the group and there should have been the appropriate Everest

01:05:00--> 01:05:33

packed full dialog that would occur to figure out how we're going to move forward. And we don't have to agree on anything and we won't it's impossible that we ever will no way will a group of people agree on everything. But it doesn't mean if I don't agree that I go break out into Nigeria into secret council and they start filling it with Islam and Dwane and Marcia, and then I come with something different a break the rule that's, that's only there from Shaytaan. And it's only there to bring the believers agony and pain we ask them to do and we shouldn't be doing that. And if we have to break out and counsel make sure is to achieve excellence, and as they're filled with taqwa, I

01:05:33--> 01:05:48

find these verses to be very, very profound and meaningful, especially we're talking about organizing how Muslims function together. I hope that was a benefit to you while it's applying, well, you have to you don't just have to take what Allah who was telling me about like intervener Muhammad earlier so

01:05:49--> 01:05:50

he said I want to compliment

01:05:52--> 01:05:55

Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar.

01:05:59--> 01:06:00
