thanks so much is like a little
humbling, right it was it was rain, the suit is sort of
your red is number 17. In Charlotte today we will continue from a number 18.
Just a quick reminder, Lhasa is the beginning of a cluster of suitors or group of suitors. So that they talk about once basic idea, looks at it from a number of different angles. And that's the client does that a lot. And you'll find the Quran doing that many, many times. It because there's really when it comes to religion, there not many things to talk about, like there's not too many stuff. It's just a couple of fundamental principles. Just make sure you understand these principles in a very deep manner profoundly meaning you understand everything that relates to them. And if you can, then you have that ability, in short to deal with different life Li and worldly problems and
different challenges that come come come during life.
Complicating religion is not the action of MBM, or the intention of Allah subhanaw taala when he sent his books, always when you find with the Quran talks about Kitab Mubin. It's a clear book, total beginner clarification, there's no it's not complexity is not what we're trying to bring towards people. The why so many? Why don't we as soon as the why so many words, it's just looking at the same idea from different angles, because there's so many variables, like the topic that these cluster of Surah talk about is submission is the concept of obedience of
following the word of Allah subhanaw taala of PA, right. So the concept is simple. If we talk about we can talk about it for a minute and give the basic idea. But there are so many variables, you know, regarding that one word that, you know, requires us to study it and to look at it from from all the different angles that exist. And that's it the Quran does, it just looks at it from different angles, and it keeps on throwing at you the idea until you are very clear regarding the application of this idea, you no longer have questions or it's clear to you basically are you have an example of how it was done once before in a situation similar to yours. So that when you are
putting this in when you have, you always can always draw the parallel back and and do what you were the example you were given. And this is what the Quran does a lot. And in many, many years situations, being the beginning of this cluster is the most important sewer within this group of sewer that talks about submission in times of difficulty, or in times when it's very awkward, or it's very hard, or you may not agree with the concept. So by the way, sometimes if you don't agree with what Allah subhanaw taala commands, you don't have to like everything he tells you to do. You don't have to go forward if you don't like what he does, or when he's telling you to do this, but
you still have to follow it all the same. He's not to listen to it, he doesn't even if you don't like it, even if you don't agree with it, even if you don't think it's the best thing. You will learn later on how important it was. But at the moment, if you don't, if you don't, that's fine. It's no big deal. Just follow it anyway, even if you don't think if you don't fancy it. So today, as I was talking about situations where that is where that is what's happening, it's difficult. It's hard. It's awkward, scary, it's weird. It's not comfortable. It gives a lot of examples of that. And right now we're in the ultimate example within the pseudo this was named after which is the story of
Elijah the Confederates, or
is the gathering the different tribes that came and tried to wipe out the Muslims in Medina in a very, very unknown story and the fifth year of his vigilance Allah Allah Salam, the it's like everyone in just in the Arabic peninsula had gotten fed up with trying to reason with the Bravo so I said, Lindy, they're tired of losing war after war with him. They they figure that the only way for this to actually happen if we were ganging up on him. And we just we just read his city, we just burn everything. He's take out everyone, and then it should work. So it's very scary moment. Imagine, you know, this is what the intention are, the people are coming in, there's 10,000 of them.
And they're not from the same tribe. That's very odd. Never before has that happened in Arabia, where 10,000 people from different tribes and different backgrounds, different religions, even their Jews, and pagans in the same in the same army, that's very, that's very different. That's very
to have the Muslims that was, it was a big challenge. So they dug the hunt duck, they dug the trench around Medina, and for over 21 days, they they held their ground, to the Quran goes around goes through some of the events that talks about what happened that day. And if you recall last time, because when going through the natural reaction of people when the Confederates were first seen when they first saw the army making it from the horizon, how did they react to what happened when they saw them? The the eyes, their eyes in their heads looked? Right look different. That response, that fight or flight response that he gets, the moment that we're scared, and you could feel their hearts
beating in their throats and the assumptions which I will never let
He had assumptions, the client doesn't say what assumptions it leaves out for you to understand on your own, I would have respect for the Muslim because even a Muslim had that even some of the strong movements, the assumptions about idea came to their mind, because the number was overwhelming. It didn't seem like this could could hold didn't seem to them that this small trench and then I don't know what well, this whole, they're not sure they're like, they feel like it may not. So they had bad assumptions. But that wasn't the problem. Because that day, the email of the believer the faith was, was tested, and it was shook violently was it was he loses Alan Shalida. And then the clients
had to show you what the problem is, and shows you what then will not get boring. And those who have diseases in their heart would say, well, at the end of your call, it will be him muddled. When you have a disease in your heart, you don't deal with it. It's only a matter of time before a certain circumstance will expose it. It'll expose it and then you're gonna have to deal with it then. But by then it's too late and you already look bad, you back to yourself as well. And they said, No, I didn't Allahu wa rasuluh in love with all that Allah and His Prophet has ever promised us is an illusion. It's a lie. It's a delusion. They didn't tell us the truth. We're gonna die today, all of
And then another group was caught up to minimum Yeah. Kamala confirms you that a small group of them another group of them said, Okay, there's no point of staying here, everyone go home, go home. So when they come in, they see you that you're not fighting and they may be spare your life. Or go and protect your family and your children and your and your women at home, take away pick up arms inside your homes or inside your ranches or your farms.
And they start asking the third, they start asking the prophesies of them, we do know for a minimum and maybe they start asking, Can we leave, give us permission our houses or our other exposed, please let us go well, now he'll be outside their houses, they're not exposed, you will be doing it and if you don't, and they just want to run these. They just they just wanted to turn their backs and run.
The one by one they did that. And the funny another last opponent that takes it one step further, when I would look at him and and how the Confederates entered Medina, to Muscle Fitness and they were asked those people were asked to change their faith or asked to fight with the Confederates or to leave Islam or to betray the Prophet Muhammad was in them or break the vow that they made with Allah subhanho wa Taala that they would stand their ground. Even if things got difficult, they would have done it. Well. Immaculate birth will be a legacy and they wouldn't hesitate for too long. That didn't happen. But Allah subhanaw taala told us what would have happened
with these people had that happened. It's a very scary area. Allah subhanaw taala reminds you that he knows what you would have done had something happened, even though it didn't happen was scary. Because when we think about it, what would we have done on that day? Would we have stood by the prophets of Allah send them or would have panicked like they did. And then maybe said thing we something we shouldn't have said influence people in a way we shouldn't have influenced them and then behaved in a way we shouldn't have behaved.
We don't know that Allah subhanaw taala does. He's telling us had that happened, they would have sold out, but they didn't buy many of them continue to be Muslim. Here's the interesting part. Many will continue to be Muslim, whether or not you're going to be a model. That sort of talking about two groups talking about the monarchy clean those who were openly hypocrites, or those who believed to be hypocrites even to themselves mean that's what they can their conviction was, and those who are Muslim, but they just had diseased hearts mean they never really dealt with it with the reality they were Muslim but not really Muslim. Like just just born like that, or that's they just kind of
ran with went with the flow they want it's not for the good times, not the bad times when it's not for what works for them, not what for doesn't work for them.
Because talking about two groups here, and both groups had they entered the Confederates at the entered Medina, they would have given up and sold out.
That's scary because we never know what we would have done in that situation. And then Allah Subhan tells the prophets of Allah, how did what to tell them what they should have done on that day? Well lay, there's just a matter of convictions, that certain thoughts, certain ideas that we should have, meaning it's normal for you to have diseases in your heart, one of them being being fear, extreme fear of cowardice, that is a normal part of being a human being however, how do you get rid of it? What do you do? There are certain convictions you have to strengthen certain thoughts and ideas that you have to have to contemplate about and you have to reflect upon Millennium Falcon will Ferraro in
for automail mo Tia will be the ultimate winner in luckily they tell them or say you should have remembered that running away is not going to help you if you're running away from death or murder or being killed in a battlefield you're not going to benefit.
If your time has come Your time has come you're just going to benefit that the time that you're not going to be on the battlefield. So let's say it's just in for me, I'm gonna die 15 minutes later during war and I run I live for 15 minutes that's a small bonus and that I get and then I die. So it was the point I died obviously doing something against the law school I could have I should have I should have done if it is and even if you're going to live 30 years what's 30 years in front of infinity? Kalina just a short period of time? What you're going to win a few years. That's why you're running away. You're going to sell out you're going to betray your your fundament your
principles and be
Jay in Bucha, your word to live a few years more why? That's one thing, if you had the thought of that would have made a difference but it doesn't deliver your Similkameen Allah. Another thing they should have thought of tell them who's going to protect you from Allah, Allah? Did he come Sue and they become Rama, if he wants to harm you, if he wants to give you mercy.
No one's gonna, okay, you're running away from Allah? Where are you going? Who's gonna protect you? Do you have someone to go to? So if you know everything is in his hands at the end, your life, your death, harm and benefit? Then why are you running for? Why are you running? And where are you running to? Please explain to Allah Subhanallah Where are you going? If you believe it's all his hands, when he doing it at home and doing it, he wasn't doing well. And you will not find besides Allah subhanaw taala an advocate or anyone to stand by them or anyone to be an ally to them, to where you're going. If you had the thought of these things for a while, probably wouldn't have left.
Even though they have Buddha, even though assumptions came to their minds, you see, when you go through life, it happens, you're hit by a calamity. And then yeah, but bad ideas. Only those or only, only those are the people of Allah subhanho wa Taala were capable of not doing it. And even some Ambia when you study, the Sierra would have ideas, not good ideas, and then they would deal with them. And they would change them. And they would flip them and they would fix them. It's normal, it's a part of being a human being, that you that you have ideas, some good, some bad based on the situation. Allah subhanaw taala holds you accountable, not for what you think not for the
ideas that come to your mind. Because some of them aren't even yours. Some of them it was such a fun, it's not even if you didn't do anything, they just just throw it in there. He holds you accountable, what you say, how you influence others and what you do. That's what you hold accountable for, prepare for that, prepare for that.
Even though what you think is important, but that's not we're gonna be held accountable for. So if you have a bad idea, don't don't lose it, it's fine, deal with it, deal with it, in the Quran here gave us the last idea to give it a way of how they could have dealt with it, and he could have stood their ground. This was not done talking about them, there's still a few more key points, reflecting upon why they did what they did, and why they behave the way they behave, what caused it what bad traits and characteristics they had, and what bad diseases they still held on to. So we'll take those if in sha Allah and there's a few words that are coming up that don't exist anywhere else and
the most if not a good way to to recognize the theme of a sutra is finding words in disorder that don't exist anywhere else. So a good way it's helped me out in a lot of years of during during years I did research on these issues. It just looking for words, you find a word that's in the Quran once only once. And this one surah right, this word could have you been used many times it's only used here to start looking why and just looking at the root of the word you find out and it makes sense. And they understand and you started to craft together with what the suit is trying to talk about. Because certain words are you some words are used many many times in the Quran so many times you can
even count them. The scholars find it very difficult to come up with the numerate How many times is one words in the Quran? And then in other words is there once it's only once, so it stands out. And it's used for a reason. There's a there's a hikma in why it was used. Bless you. So we started showing from a number 18 of arrows we learn Hindi in a shape on your Raji.
Miss Miller here
got the Yeah, LM love. We've been I mean Come we'll call Ilene.
The word is within right within and that is one of the words that doesn't exist anywhere else. So we'll talk about in a second. When Elina early 20 him Hello Elaina
tune in Paulina
she had an eye lady come
stop there because these two are very intertwined. Meaning when you start with cardiology, you have to read to the end of the page, you have to if you don't read on the page, you're gonna you're gonna miss the whole thing and end up missing the whole thing. So it's like the I don't actually end the mean doesn't end at the end of it, and somewhere in the middle of it afterwards. That's why it's very important that we read the whole thing together so it makes sense of it. But the ILM, Allah who indeed Allah subhanaw taala knows, sometimes in Arabic.
By coming before a present tense verb can mean something doesn't happen too often or rarely happens, but not in the Quran, specifically, when it's referring to something that Allah subhanaw taala does. So here it means indeed, it's an emphasis but the ILM Allah Who means Allah subhanaw taala indeed Knows Your Name Allah
out and he indeed knows elements within I mean, come from amongst you and well within.
It's from LAO or Laibach. And what it means is for you to inhibit something, it's inhibition, or is discouragement. So, I work as someone who discourages someone else from doing something. It's a very specific term, I don't know it, it does not exist anywhere else, as far as I know, in the Quran. And that's, to my knowledge. I have been proven wrong a few times before, in my claims, but but as far as I know, from the memorization, I'm looking at the forehead, it's talking about the glare, the indexes and the glossaries. There's really no other
word in it as a very specific term, and then why are we paying them income amongst you, those who discourage others, it's one thing for you not to do hire, to another thing for you to discourage others from doing credit, you know, what I'm talking about in your life, you know, I'm talking about the person who will come to you and try to get you not to do something good that you're in the process of doing, right. And the reasoning that they have, and the concept that they use, or the or the logic that they're using is flawed, and you know, it's flawed, and you end up spending a lot of time trying to convince them that they should be, they shouldn't be doing what you're doing. But
they continue to try to inhibit you to continue to try to bring you down. And usually the reason is, it is one of two things, either it's because they wish they could do what you do, but they don't. They wish they could, but they can't for whatever reason, they can't do it. So they says they can't do it, then maybe they can get you not to do it as well so that they don't feel as guilty. Right? Or because they actually have a conviction that what you're doing is wrong one of two things. Either way, they're a very, very dangerous part of any given society. We've been I mean come those who will who discourage others from doing hire, or from doing something that is beneficial. Those same people
are within Welker alien, and he acquired him. And those are the ones who tell their brothers Hello, Magdalena. You see after some of them went back to their homes, like we've talked about a few if before, some of them said Our homes are exposed in the wilderness. And they went to their homes, and they left the 100 standing at the trench anymore. They told some of their brothers and those who are related to them. Hello, Lena, come to us. Come do what we're doing. Come and join us.
Mohammed and those with him are just snack for lab. Some of them use those words, that we're going to eat them in the
room, Mahoma Bucha, Fionna woman Madhu, they're gonna eat them. They're gonna eat them up wherever they were, they have 1400 people, 300 people, there's 10,000 They will demolish them, come with us. Come do what we're doing. They'll find you on your homes, protecting your homes away from Mohammed, they'll spare your lives. And then things will go back to normal again. And then these people who immigrated to us from Mecca, they're gone. They're dead and those who stood by them, and then we don't have to deal with this anymore not to put up with it anymore. Hello, Maggie, Lina. What I do now, Colleen and these people will never engage in war or engage in fighting or stand their ground
in battle or in combat it luckily, except a bit. It's interesting as we go through this, this surah. Allah subhanaw taala never denies full hail from them. We do that Allah, we don't like people, we deny full care from someone else. He is completely useless. Right? They are completely worthless, they are all not good. We use these words quite often we generalize, I once read that the most ignorant thing the human race has ever done is generalizing to generalize that any group of people, once you generalize, you enter the big door of ignorance. And now you're on the other side of it. Whenever you think a whole group of people are all this are all that have all this or don't have all
that you don't know that you can generalize on a group, Allah subhanaw taala. When he speaks of them, he says, What okay, I know people don't always go back. This is not we're not there yet. But we're gonna come to that in a second. But he said
he will be here in layer zero, they will not have hesitated when they were called to leave their Deen, except for a bit. Maybe they would have hesitated for a bit isn't all bad. Some, some parts of them are all right. But generally, I You see, there's always an exception. At this age here in this area. When I had to elect a leader, they wouldn't have fought, and they don't have the ability to stand their ground and they don't have any courage in them. It's up to bid in LA Kalita. We're not denying full and complete, Yoni. From these people, Allah Subhan doesn't do it. And that's a big lesson for us to learn when he talks about subhanaw taala when he's talking about those who who
refuse to walk
on his path or follow His Word, does not deny all aid from them. They're not all bad. Wood. Of course, what they did was bad, but not everything. C'est la kalila LIS, there was something left, but they didn't listen to it. There's always that voice of reasons or the voice of goodness in your head somewhere. Sometimes it's distance. Sometimes you've you've learned to ignore it, but it's there. It's always reminding us right? You have to kind of you know, refresh it a bit and give it a bit more. Give it a bit more weight. When I say luckily Allah, Allah Subhan Allah Allah indeed, he knows
Those who discourage others from doing what is right. The ones who tell their brothers come to us leave humbly and those who are with them come do what we did. Stay in your homes and wait for things to end. When they say love kalila. And they are generally speaking, those who don't have courage, they lack courage. They don't fight, they don't stand for anything. They're on the ability to their word best means war. It means combat. And what this is talking about is that they lack courage. No one likes this. No one enjoys war. That's not the point, obviously. And this sort of in the Quran doesn't never encourage is the concept. But when you're when you're required to stand up for what
you believe in, just stand up for what is right. Even if that means you're going to have to engage in combat, then you do. You have to have that courage in you. You have to have that bravery. And they don't accept a bit that they don't in general.
She had an Alikum being very, very she hadn't.
She had come from the the root word sure means selfishness. Or it means stinginess, or it means not wanting to see others benefits,
wanting to withhold failure from those around you. So as your Hatton alikhan, they have the intention of withholding aid and withholding benefits and with a legal aid from you, either you come on you upon your fondant Muhammad, the Prophet said Allah is Allah and those who stand by him as your heart and Alikum, they are too cheap, they're too stingy to actually offer any help to the unit, they didn't believe in Islam, they still signed a contract that they would defend Medina with the Prophet Muhammad said that the Muslims, they still just steal their city, the cons of the prophets like Selim is still just being free to to believe in whatever he wants to believe in, which
is, which is a socially justified cause they could have stood with him for that at least, but they didn't. She had to do no, they're not willing to offer any help. If they can, that they're not going to do even if they can, they're not going to do it, I should have done Aliko
I fear for the concept
I've been working within.
Because a very scary one.
We do it sometimes quite often in our lives.
Because we weigh things out differently than the person in front of us. And sometimes we discourage someone from doing something that we don't know for sure is not is harmful for them. We just think it is. Sometimes you see someone behaving in a certain way, or having a certain ambition or walking down a certain road. And we tried to discourage them from doing it. Even though we don't have enough, we don't have sufficient information to say that what he's doing is going to harm them. We don't have it, we just discourage them. Anyway, discouragement is a problem that communities carry on and perform quite often, and you find in families and you find in relationships and friendships,
when you discourage someone from doing something, there has to be a very clear basis for why you're discouraging them. When you say them. No, you shouldn't do this not a good idea. No, you shouldn't marry her, or you shouldn't marry him. Or you shouldn't take that job. Or you shouldn't study this field. Or you shouldn't
take these people as your friend, or you shouldn't be doing this act of whatever act, whatever act it is, whatever, whatever I need community involvement, or just social involvement, you shouldn't be involved in this. Be very careful. Many of us base our, our and you'll see how our advice in this on fear, we base it off here, like this is not gonna get you anything. But
it does give you a hard time you get involved in these people. And then you know, CSIS watches you or you're on the RCMP list. Or if you've spent time with these people, then you can also get a bad reputation or they are not everything they do is great. Sometimes they are. So we discourage someone from going and having an experience in life or doing something that they think is right. And you don't have a good basis of why you're discouraging them from doing something. It's not like you're offering advice that is Islamic is not discouragement. Advice, is basically showing the person all the different angles of what they're going to do. That's what advice is, if you go every medical
advice, you can ask veterinarians and doctors, it's a very simple thing. We just show them all the data. That's all we do. I don't tell them, but I think you should do this. But even medical, I'm not supposed to tell them what I think should happen. Even if they asked me most of the time, I should withhold from telling you because that's biased. That's my opinion. I should tell you what the data says this, that 90% of the time people do this procedure, this procedure 80% of the time will succeed 20% It won't succeed. Now if you don't do this procedure, then this is the only alternative that you have this alternative will lead to one, two, and three, most likely this will happen. This
is all science. This is unbiased information. I'm not telling you what I think this is what this is what the data tells me. There's what the information is. So when you're offering advice, you're trying to explain to them this is what's going to these are the different things that could happen. But you don't do that. You just tell them what you think. And you end up discouraging them from doing something and that discouragement you don't know for sure if it was it was wrong. I'm not saying that someone's saying should I committed
dinner or not? And then No, no, of course that's haram that doesn't get to tell them. This is how you don't do it. When I'm talking about something that is clearly haram or clearly fuddled, that Allah subhana commanded to do or commanded us not to do, I'm saying all the billion things in the middle, there are many of them the gray area that we don't know, you don't know if it's better or not, I don't know.
You wants to marry someone. When you think about her, you don't like the family? So you say no, I don't think you don't know if she made me a good person, that this may present information but don't discourage immediately. If you don't know this is going to be good or bad idea. You don't know that yet. You don't have that ability to do so. If we all took care of how we speak to others in terms of of their plans and their aspirations, our relationships within our communities would differ, very different than we would actually understand what there was support me I don't think would have stayed with the word support means we only support one another when they're doing exactly what we
wanted them to do. That's easy. It's easy to support someone who's doing exactly what you told them to do. Try supporting someone who's not doing exactly what you wanted them to do. That is a challenge. I dare you to try it. You'll grow from it. You will develop and evolve as a human being when you when you need to support someone who don't believe in everything that they're doing, not because it's all wrong, because you just have a different opinion regarding this whole issue. But he that's what they think that's what they accept. That's what they want. That's what that's what their ambition is all right. I'll support you in it. I'll tell you what, my what I want my information
regarding this issue, but I will not discourage you. Allah subhanaw taala in deeds knows those who discourage telling their friends come to us would like to say, luckily, they're cowards.
They're mostly cowards. That's what I was saying. When you give any advice based on nothing but fear, why, just because you are scared to do something, you want him to be scared of doing it too. It's not fair.
You didn't do it. And I, I say this and
as an educator, and I say this as a father as well. And as a son. Be careful.
Be careful. As a father, you fear a lot for your kids. You do, rightfully so justified manner. But be careful. Just because you didn't have the guts to do something in a certain point doesn't mean that they have to do, they can dry. Let them try it. They want to try let them dry. Because you don't know. Safety is not the only important thing in the world. Playing it safe is not the only thing. We all come from backgrounds, but we were raised on playing it safe. That's why we all go into the right professions. That's why you have four choices as a doctor, engineer, lawyer or dead choose one of the four than anything else is acceptable. Mmm, that's your raise like that. Well, why
because we because we live our parents and grandparents and great grandparents lived through such difficult times. Financially was so hard they were so poor there was such a need that that's the mentality that they carry. They want everyone to be safe you want to make sure that they secure your financial future and not blaming them by the way I don't think so. I'm telling you now that don't let that affect the way you think. Don't Don't let fear be the reason that you discourage someone from doing something specifically you don't have information there's an important part of this area. It's the only time this word exists in the Quran. I don't know anywhere else where the being
actually exists. Allah subhanaw taala is pointing them out you know they did they made a mistake they did something wrong fine. Don't discourage others. No Come and tell them come with us. Hello mania Why are you doing this you know you're doing this wrong Why are you telling me why are you discouraging others from doing what you know was the right thing to do you gave your word to stand by the by the Muslims in defend you didn't why discouraging the ones who did now you're carrying their Islam as well. You can very soon as well. They are meddling in their business. Why would you do that? It's not smart. And the reason is just what I say Laconia is that most your most most
likely cowards and they just don't have the courage to stand their ground. I should have done Alikum feeling feeling stingy towards others not wanting them to try not wanting them to achieve what they didn't achieve withholding their aid and withholding

LM You mean a hammer
right Canavan law here see
the talks about two things,
either the herbal hopeful, alright so as to phrases very hopeful and when fear comes faded the herbal hobo and fear leaves, fear is not a human being it doesn't come and go, but it's a figure of speech. Now we're in the middle of the midst of all this as things were happening, fear would increase in decrease. Because you're in the middle of war you're surrounded by 10,000 people you don't know what's gonna happen next moments fear and increases and in moments fear decreases. It can imagine the chaos of a war right a moment you hear good news, so you're less frightful. Then another moment you hear really bad news, you become very, very scared. So fear goes up and down during this.
It's an emotional roller coaster. If you're ever in war, and you don't know what's gonna happen next. And hope is going and coming. And this is a call for
any. Now, when it says that it's not specifying that this is happening to them when ar 15 is not specifying that is happening to the elf equilibrium model. Those who have disease in their heart is not specifying that it's happening to them. Why are we paying those or discouraging others? No, it is saying this is general as Muslims, non Muslims, we should be keen Jews
or Christians in those who have diseases in their heart and inhibitors, all those things together. fear comes and goes here hits us all if your leaves us all.
He's, he's important. Now the Sahaba sat there fearless on the day of life. Some people were very scared. I'll give an example of that fear during during this time
when when those people started to retreat, and the number of people on the on the on the trench decreased in the courageous counting and can see something's going on. They're negotiating with the Jews have been Okonedo in the southern part of Medina, to see if they'll open the gates, the forts, the gates of the forts of get in. And they can see this chaos and they can see some people, the numbers are decreasing a bit. They know something's not normal. So they start trying stuff. till this moment, no one has dared to enter the trench. They can't jump over the trench. They don't have any ability to do that. But they can go into trench and then go if they're given enough time,
wherever the Muslims are undecided will kill immediately. Like you don't have enough time you're gonna die before they just pile you up inside The Trench basically, because the numbers brought down they started to have a bit more any leeway. So I'm
Ben Wood jumped into the into the trench.
And he started calling on people who will come down for a duel, I believe is a known
guy. He warrior. He was probably the most notorious warrior in all of our iba. He wasn't around for budget. No, he was somewhere else and he came back
and this guy is yelling at the Muslims. You know, like come in. Give me a duel. It there's not one person here who has the guts to duel me. Oh, you're all nice. He starts to you know, badmouth them your chicken. No one's you're getting no men amongst the Muslims that come down and duel me.
No, and everyone's sitting on the other side. Everyone sitting by Rama, Osman Zubayr. Paula. All the names you like, oh, sitting there. He's yelling down. They're coming fight. You're just sitting listening to him. Hey, budget. No one's going anywhere. They're happy where they are. Things are good. The scary day is a day where fear Jehovah, they're very scared. It's a scary day. It's normal to be scared. They didn't they didn't run. They didn't leave their posts. They didn't turn their backs. But they're not on the other hand that I could do something crazy. That's why this story is so beautiful because there is one of them. Was it braver than than all of them? I guess it makes up
90 of the low on Alibaba this way also Allah Allah Who will take care of him for clarity it has to do with you know it you know who is this? I'm Robin Hood sits it? There's no point it's just he just he just basically trying to trying to provoke a response. He just be provocative. There's just don't listen to him. And that guy down there is yelling so that's not one of you. All of you are chicken now when one Muslim has the guts to come down here and fight me and he's saying bad stuff. And I didn't even know that Danny, that I needed who? jasola I'll take care of it. Let me go in the profit zone. This is listen, just to stay behind and trench. Defend. We don't need to you don't need to do
The guy keeps on yelling the third
Time and he comes to the Prophet I also Donnie, let me do it. So the prophets I send them said okay,
and the prophets I send them gave him his sword and his shield. So he gave it you know, the one who both the sword and the shield and the shield, and then it went down into the trench. There's a beautiful part of the story that when it really low, it will get down to the trench to do this. But Robert, as I say, let me turn towards curbline tears in his eyes and he made dua, he said, your arm you took from me? What RBW had on the deal.
And you took from your hands on the table head, you're up in this alley. You don't leave me alone.
You know, don't take everyone from me. Leave me Leave me leave me some family. Just leave me someone you're on. Please don't take everyone from me. And he may do it for at the end. And Allah subhanaw taala accepted His divine ally lives years from this lesson and passed away. He went down. And it wasn't very easy is to meet all these young who are you? I told him
I didn't call him
some very known lineage. This is very famous. Because you're the son of kinda Sahibi your dad was my my friend. And have fun. You don't have to go. I don't like to kill you. For quite lucky headwind to that, but I would love to kill you.
When you buy Euro Kobane SLS, I'm gonna give you three options today in mind to slim make Shahada.
Oh, and download or leave right now. up to like, 100 I'll kill you right now. Right here.
The string family, Allah and it's courage. See the difference between what we're reading here what I had to say, luckily, I had an Alikum withhold aid, withhold help, very cowardly, discouraging others from doing what is right. And I needed the Allah who I know the example of what a Muslim could be, what integrity and what dignity and also could have. So this man, when he hears these, this kid is giving him options. One of the options is today, he loses it. Hello, Vanessa and philosophy, you gotta get off his get off his horse and he killed the horse. It's a horrible, horrible Arabic or Arabian trend, they would they would, they wouldn't kill the horse, they would just hit it on his
leg so it could never run again. And then it would have to be killed later on horrible trade. They did this a lot. And they took from the blood of the horse and he painted his face to Mahana Cathar they start to make noises like a bull. Basically, that's that's his ritual before fighting. And of course he's doing this and the Muslims are just peeking from trench looking at what's going to happen. And they they start hitting one another. And they're fighting so violently, that so much dust is rising from the trench and then you can't see anything anymore. So the people who are looking from different angles trying to see they can't see they just hear just hear a sword. You see
metal and wood and metal hitting one another violently and quickly, then a lot of noise. And then suddenly one blow and nothing else after that. Right? They could hear that the blow this time hit flesh made a different sound. Right? And then they hurt to clear. Allahu Akbar. And then the Muslims moved, like we don't know, maybe I haven't read this. You know, it's costing us. Maybe he killed Eileen. He's doing a language. There we go. Daddy kills. Let's do so let's wait. Oh, wait, I'm sorry. No, no hurry, and then slowly the dust settles and they see it walking out.
And Woods head in one place in his body and another.
Allahu Akbar and the moral morale of the Muslims, skyrockets and the morale of Quraysh falls down. It's one of the things that kept the trench held for at least a week. Because the like I told you, they could see the numbers decreasing. So they thought that it's almost going to do it that he killed it.
He killed the strongest warrior that they'd ever known. I knew that before. He broke every I guess every odd he was the underdog, obviously that day, and he won, and it changed the morality made a big shift of
morale that day. And I made the other side in the profit because I was so happy and that they asked him to teach me did he? Why don't you bring his shield? You understand how much money that would be worth? I want to shield like it's legendary in Arabia, like there are legends or myths regarding that shield. You killed him. When you kill someone in war, like in battle, you get to take all his armor. Basically, that's what they did. And we're fighting clink, clink, I when I take assured that your shield, I take your armor, I look into your mouth. If you have golden teeth, I pull them out of your head. I take everything that I can take us what they used to do back in the day, everything
everything you could possibly take from you. So people who were dead after war would lay there almost naked, like nothing. They took their boots, everything was gone. The guy who won until this time came and said no, no, that's not what's gonna happen anymore. That's how we're gonna do. It's gonna be an organized way people are gonna get buried and none of this because everyone just people laying down you would think a bunch of naked guys were fighting. If you didn't know any better if you didn't understand how things were gonna think they were coming in fighting naked. But the thing was, once they're dead, they take everything off them. But I didn't do it. He came without the
without the shields. Clearly it takes him $1 Why don't you bring the shield color
Don't have to fire me but that's when I hit him. He fell his his junk was became exposed like is private parts so became exposed when he fell. I didn't want to look at it so I left like I was gonna take his shield obviously it says worth a lot of money they're poor they're not much money. I hit him I thought he fell I knew I won. I came to take the shield he fell in expose himself is gonna walk away and I want to look at what was haram. That's why he wanted when they say this Ali Karim Allah Hua, gentlemen, Allah subhanaw taala dignify his face. And the law I know because of because of something that's something like this isn't known story within Eliza, is just to draw the parallel
or to kind of put the comparison between what we painted and what those who weren't while we painted. And there's a difference between someone who was like that and someone who isn't either Joe Koval. Finally when fear comes in, it hits everyone. The point of this story was even the Sahaba were scared and there's nothing wrong with that. Some of them had more courage than others. That's not a problem but not but some of them are scared and it's normal to be scared or at home young Verona eager to do or you know whom to live the OSHA anti human and module see them looking at you. Yeah, Mohammed, they do iron on their heads are are turning in their eyes, their heads are moving
back and forth, up and down very quickly. That's a sign of fear. That's a sign of being very nervous when you're when you're not sure what what's gonna happen next. Are you looking everywhere, you're very nervous. They're looking at you and Mohamed, as if to say, Why did you do this? As if to say, Why did you bring this upon us as if to say please, you know, protect us, or please give us an excuse to go somewhere else or scared? Kundalini Yoga sha Allah human mode, it's as if they're, they're fainting, they're losing consciousness during the time of death. When you die, you lose your consciousness, you wake up and you lose your consciousness until you actually pass away. So it's if
they're dying, they're losing consciousness as if they're dying. They're so scared as if they're going to die from out of fear. This is the the Quran is figuratively describing their state, can you see them? When good things get very scared? They get really scared. They look at the prophets, I send them they're very nervous. It feels like they're, they're breathing so heavily. And they're
if they're dying with looking at the profits, I'm hoping that maybe he'll give them an excuse or are wondering, yellow, why did you do this? Why did you cause them to come here? You're the reason for all of this is your fault. Maybe if you if you had you know, done something differently, we wouldn't have to be in this situation. They're in a in a moment of blame. There are moments of extreme fear and, and desire to run away or do something else. Maybe write down you can see them. They're looking at you holding you responsible. You're Muhammad, do you know you're doing it? You're not looking at you guys as Muslims? No, just looking at the prophets? I said no, because you hold them responsible
for it. We've got a lot to
learn a lot too.
When something goes not the way we want, but we accepted it. Meaning there was a leader, can you say okay, this is all gonna do. Here's my plan. You like my plan? Look at his plan. Like,
it's all right. I don't have another one.
I like everything about it. Looks good. All right, I'm on board. This one doesn't work. So we turn to the leader and you blame them? It's your fault. You came up with this plan? No, it's your fault. You accepted the plan. You stuck with it. You didn't have to, you would have said no right off the bat, then I'm good. I don't want this I'll do something else. But that's what Cowards do. They run away from carrying responsibility all the time, they will always look for someone to blame for things that they accepted at some point.
And this is like one of the most common things that exists in the world. But the traits of these people are the discourages of the cowards of the hypocrites is giving you again, some of these people by the way, were Sahaba, who later on Yanni committed repentance, repented to Allah subhanaw taala fixed their ways. People don't talk about these and because of that, because it has some criticism of people. But that's not the point. The point is not to criticize, criticize these people say they weren't perfect. They're human beings of course not perfect so that we can learn. Because how else do we learn if you don't see human beings dealing with situations? How do we learn how to
become better? How do we make sure that doesn't happen to us? How do you actually benefit from their example, Rahim Allah, what are the Allahu Anhu much mean? Allah subhanaw taala at the end was pleased with all the Sahaba who live with the prophets I send them even though some of them made these mistakes even though someone had diseased heart to some of them like that they made mistakes and said things they shouldn't have said but they all eventually repented and fixed. But what's the point if we do exactly what they do in terms of mistakes, and not in terms of repentance and and fixing those mistakes?
For either either haberl Hoval and then when fear leaves
Excel COCOM the LC unit in Salah cuckoo is a really interesting word if you ever ever boiled an egg. They say Bill I'm a smoker, you know a boiled egg. So c'est la Coco is a word that doesn't really this is like a word Quran coined in terms of a verb. Arab is never used.
selaku come as a verb before, they will say hopefully you won't miss Lacan or miss luck. The speaker was very good and speaking he had his words would penetrate you His words would move you to Salah pokum BL seen it and they will use their words, or they would speak to you very, very proficiently and very powerfully with their tongues be heeded with strong tongues as a figure of speech. It's like their tongues are made of of steel, as they speak to you telling you about their bravery telling you how they stood by you that day asking for the booty the bounty, at the after the war, you see when when there's no when there's fear, they're sitting there,
shivering, their eyes are twisting in their heads and looking at the Prophet hoping things just like they're dying. And then when, when fear goes, they say, oh, salami stood by you, we fought with you.
Because it's gonna give us give us where we were equal, you find just like me, I get the same amount of bounty at the end of this, you don't get more than me. And they start talking about their bravery and how they set a hook on VLC, et cetera. hougham is like they, they do barrage you with their steel tongues, or tongues or steel, but nothing else is.
The idea here is our tongue are made of steel, they can talk, they can talk the talk, but they can't walk the walk, they couldn't do what was required of them. But when it comes to talking, and speaking of what that they have steel tongues set up will come and they will throw you the most harmful words, the strongest word they'll barrage you with words so powerful, so deep and so meaningful, articulately, articulate perfectly. She had an adult clear, very, very stingy when it comes to hire, not wanting others to have hired, they want the height for themselves, they want the money, they want the bounty, they want the reward to be there as not to be others, even though they
know they didn't deserve it, even though they know they were never part of it. And whenever we do feel utterly human had Confederates entered, they would have left and they would have changed immediately. People who run with the flow, depending on what's going on. Scary, or is it not scary? How do I how do I how do I capitalize right now? How do we optimize my my reward right now? How do you make sure I get the most? How do I make sure I'm sure I'm selfish? How do I make sure that I get the most out of this? And that you don't? How do I that's what they do. They're not interested in Islam not interested in the process. They're not interested even in the pledge that they gave. They
gave word, their word to do something that's important. It's not important, whatever. Depends fade that yeah, and hopefully,
it's a beautiful way the Quran talks about it, like fears going and coming. And you can see how they change. When it's fearful. Those are the arguments now these are talking about bravery. Why what is this? That's how they are set up to come. He has seen it in headed in a hat and
being very stingy when it comes to hair they want to know for themselves.
He can let me know indeed those ones are the ones who did not truly believe.
They didn't truly believe let me know if your clarity Laravel and you will study a different surah to
see the Bedouin say we believe polam told me no, no, I don't believe you told us let's say we entered Islam.
Well, I'm Maya holy Eman. Ophir Kulu becomes scared for true belief in Allah subhanaw taala and commitment to enter your hearts it will happen but it hasn't happened yet just so that we're clear, without ego let me let me know those ones they didn't really truly believe yet.
Allah subhanho wa Taala turned their actions to be worthless. I have a BA
in the Quran, there are a number of spots that Allah subhanaw taala talks about, have a mouthful, Amman?
It's a very whenever that's there. Whenever this word exists, you need to hit the brakes. And there we cite those number of times if you sphere if you fear for Jana, you're gonna have to do an example we recited in Suzuka,
before this, we talked at the end of it remember that some of them followed up with a homeo multi Amity was they will have no wait what they do. And we talked about that. That's the big problem. Imagine you do all the work deeds and then come up with Kamal hoping to be rewarded and they have no weight. When I came up with they didn't believe properly, their belief wasn't proper enough, wasn't strong enough for them to behave properly on that day. You can claim that you're a woman. That's fine, good hamdulillah that's the first step. Now they'll prove it. When you're put into a situation where it's going to be tested. Prove it by your with your behavior when they were needed to prove no
they had assumptions. And that wouldn't be a problem had to stop there. But know that they said something. They said it's all a lie. And then they asked to go home because they're there, their homes are exposed and then they went and then they discourage others from staying. And then based on the situation, either they were cowards and they were scared and they kept their silence. Or they asked for money if there was no fear anymore. They thought they're gonna win. Totally opportunistic, totally opportunistic. With no
Honestly whatsoever and they're saying we're moving on you can say what you want. There's a problem for Allah who I'm meeting their deeds will be rendered useless or worthless. That is an option by the way. It's an option. So Allah subhanaw taala said MSC I mean, yeah, we don't come to the point or we're not face to multi OMA with deeds that are have stamps on them. Yeah, this is worthless and this one's worth Listen, but I did it. I know you did it, but it's not worth anything. Well, why? Okay, we'll talk about that no problem. We'll talk about why, let's, let's let's study the footage. Let's take a look at why. It's easy to find out why
BioSuit Allah on the day of is up? Yeah, you didn't get anything for that. You got things for other stuff, but not for that. Why? Oh, it's easy. Let's start to see. Let's go. And this was quite the the record the crime recorded it for us. So that we would learn. But there are other examples that work recorded for other people later on for ourselves. Certain things you're not gonna get a year for? Probably no. You probably already know you're not gonna get to deal with this. You didn't do much. You hope so we're not gonna get it. The whole thing was a mess. It just worked out because Allah subhanaw taala was graceful it worked out for you. Maybe work harder. That's why the movements
till the day they die are fearful of Jahannam and keep on doing good deeds, because they never know which one's going to be stamped with worthlessness on your myopia. They don't know which ones are accepted, and which ones aren't. That's why if you if you go to different countries, after Sudan, people turn to each other say Tocopilla, what do they mean? May Allah accept because he could easily Amata Ahmed could easily render that deed of Salah completely worthless, do not forget that. We will not that's an important part. Doing it doesn't mean it's accepted. We like them you know, they didn't have proper Iman. They didn't prove it through their actions follow up, Allahu Allah, Allah
home. So their deeds were rendered useless. What kind of early callala He is here that was extremely easy for Allah subhanaw taala. Indeed, there was no problem. It's easy for him to render a deed worthless. Why? Because the argument for him is simple. The evidence is all there is no problem out of His mercy subhanaw taala many times he will give you a reward for something that you didn't deserve a reward for. But he can render it worthless anytime he wants. And it's easy to show you how you didn't really deserve the reward for it. So be careful and be fearful. That's why we sit in front of Allah subhanaw taala with total humility, with complete humbleness, because all our deeds
we know at a certain point aren't that great. He could render them worthless. No problem. You wouldn't find it very difficult. It would be very easy for Allah Subhan very easy. So we asked him even if it's not good, even if it's shiny, it says it's not perfect. It's not accepted.
Yeah, no, of course, it's a part of every, every profit, you'll find that part is the concept of Cabul use of Isilon happening beside him and can you just you know
push me with put me with the group of the good people just let me tag along with them all the provinces how they think this is their mentality? Because they know because they're much more self aware than we are much more self aware. We understand what what it means to have a deed accepted is someone more so that the ideas finished and then we'll next time we'll start with the big guy and show love numbers 21 But what are you just one more? Yes.
when he didn't have a doula and whom
Yeah, what do doula and home bad?
Yes, Luna and equal
Well, we can all feel
portaloo in Cali
Yes, everyone Eliza lamentable, when the hazards are actually leveling the Confederate Confederates actually left because there was so fearful and there were so suspicious and they were so cowardly. They thought they didn't leave. They couldn't believe that they left they were like No, no, they're just probably doing something and they will come back any minute now. Any minute now. You're gonna find them coming back? Yes. But let me at the level of fear that they were living in now currently they were. They were told Colossus done finally the job left in the province unless I'm stood on top of the trench. He looked at his group left and he said you'll never zoom what I have zoomed in from
now when we go to them they don't come to us is the final time they can ever gather together and come to us and your man of zoom what I have Zuna and that was told to them and that caught us it's over the ASVAB not the Confederates have left and they couldn't believe it's no you're lying. Impossible. No, no, no on the stage fear
Pull for days after for weeks after because they couldn't believe it's not possible 10,000 People leave us I don't, it's not gonna happen because it's more, because there's more to the story than what I've told you. The story is, because of a complex FEMA complicate a lot of different betrayal and a lot of deaths and a lot of a lot of difficulties. So you couldn't believe it? That's a level of cowardly. Have you ever felt that as a kid, sometimes you can remember feeling like that
you're scared of the dark or something. And then you turn on the light and they keep on trying to comfort you and you're still scared, you don't believe that it's gone, happens to a child fine. As children, children have those basic instincts that we're not supposed to all we're not supposed to entertain all the time, we're not supposed to behave like children at certain points, we're supposed to be able to change our nature, or at least, you know, control it specifically in circumstances where that is needed. It would be it would be very
disappointing. If you behave like a child in certain situations of fear or loss, or Jonnie blessing or calamity was not it's not the best you don't look good. Doesn't look good at all. But you don't hold a child accountable. He's a child he hasn't learned how to control these instincts. And sometimes you get you get mad at a child if you think you should have learned to control this instinct so far. If you think you know you should why you act like this. No, you should you should know better by now. You think so? But now he's a kid doesn't know better. You know, he learned something, teach him. This is a good good, good point to teach him because now you have act natural
they can't believe that they're gone. When I did. And had the Confederates come see again.
TWICE, TWICE, TWICE in these I told you twice in these. Allah subhanaw taala gives hypotheticals
to big deal like read the Quran and see if you can find more. You won't find more very few times. Very, very, very, very rare that Allah subhanaw gives a hypothetical Had something happened is what you have done to scary thing. We haven't had that configurators come if they come yet do they would wish no unknown but do not fill out Rob. They wish that they would wish that they were living in the open drains with the Bedouins by doing our OB if they were living with the Bedouins far away from the fight, they would wish we were just sitting in a tent with a cup of milk and inside the fire. Yes. Aluna and Amber Aiko asking about how things are happening. And he's sending the idea again,
isn't that an instinct feeling? When things are really bad you wish you were somewhere else.
When there's a lot of noise and fighting you wish you could just kind of be somewhere else peaceful. Not Know About this again and instinct. It's normal to feel like that. But you should evolve and develop from certain instincts you shouldn't stay like that had the outcome they would turn into children who are wishing that they were living somewhere safe over there with the Bedouins in their tents. And they and they would get the chance to ask Oh, so what happened to Mohammed and his group did they get Dima Oh, they got demolished? Too bad is equal to the Quran. I was giving him a complete description of what they would have thought went okay, no fee went had they been there
anyway. And had this happened and they've been there Mark ah, tell you in love Kadena. They wouldn't have really fought or done anything except a bit again the Allah subhanaw taala saying they're completely worthless.
Three times now you've paid attention three times now Allah subhanaw taala did not say they're all bad and everything is bad about them. No. And luckily, you know, in legacy era, there's some good in them not much, but there's some good please don't generalize against others. Please don't know how much you hate the group. Please don't generalize. It's an ignorant action. It's very ignorant. Not good. Doesn't look good on you either. Don't Don't say this whole group all them ignorance, all the knots good. All them cheap. All them yawn even racist all them terrorists. Tell them don't? What are you doing? Why you've generalized on a whole group on the whole. There's over 200 million people in
this group. You actually talk to all of them. And you will know that all of them are like this. Why would you say that? How could you say how could that be acceptable to you? Allah subhanaw doesn't say that. And he knows it's a pilot with China. Well, okay, I know for you. And had they been I've been amongst you, Mark Otto kalila, they wouldn't have fought and it would have stood their ground except for a bit, or a few of them would have only the rest would have ran
or whatever. And so that's the
that's the number 20
At this point, I wanted to point out it's finished talking about the hypocrites the diseased hearts and the discourages those who, who misbehaved on the day of the exam, I will do a summary of it next time and show it so that you see all the points now we go to talk about those who didn't those who performed because now all this has been negative and you guys probably don't feel very good about it. The next night, you will feel uplifted. Next time come next actually come next so you can be uplifted because you get to hear about Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and the Sahaba and those who stood their ground and you get to feel very happy with the rest of the day. You want to say
something sorry. Referring to it again.
In which way will okay annual fee and have they been amongst you? That when I said that too high they he talking about the discourage
Is the hypocrites and those who have diseased hearts, those who left those who weren't when they were speaking, they said, everything you were told was an illusion or a lie. And our houses are exposed and we need to go to our houses and they told people come with us, to those people who did these activities.
