challah the pages for 21

00:00:03--> 00:00:06

we recite recite it up to a number 27 of swords.

00:00:07--> 00:00:22

Today, we're going to continue for 28 It's a new it's a new topics a new story. However, before I start the new topic and the new story, I do want to take a few moments to talk about the last few I didn't have much time last time to go into the detail that I want to go into.

00:00:23--> 00:00:53

It's just an it's a pilot, every sticky and difficult and uncomfortable situation within the Islamic history. You'll find some reference of it in sort of Lhasa, which is what it's about. It's about submission to Allah subhanaw taala obedience to Allah subhanaw taala when it's hard to be obedient, it's hard to submit when it's expected when it when it's exceptionally difficult. Whether the difficulty is physical, whether it's fear, whether it's just Jonnie lack of comfortability, whether it's just lack of availability, whatever it is, it whenever is uncomfortable.

00:00:55--> 00:01:31

I've talked to about doctrine with an example for it, and reminds you that you're required to submit to obey Allah subhanaw. Taala follows commands, even when it's like that it's specifically and especially when it's like that. So the first example being the story of the Battle of the Trench, that was probably one of the most scary, if not the most scary incident all throughout the Sierra by far, for the Sahaba for the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Another difficult situation within that same battle was what happened with general Cordova. This is a story that people usually find it find it difficult to talk about, because of the actual incident itself, they find it hard to talk about. And

00:01:31--> 00:01:36

it brings up a lot of questions and why did the prophets I send them any behead

00:01:37--> 00:01:42

the leaders of this tribe and send them out of the city and take what was whatever was left from of their

00:01:47--> 00:02:15

whatever is left of their of their homes, or their property or their possessions and giving it to the Muslims actually making sure that their homes were turned into homes for them. Oh, Hi, Judy, in the morning, we actually got to live in the forest in the forests and the homes of many people after they left. So when you study this, this incident, you're like, Well, why it seems so it goes against everything you hear about the prophets, like Selim, basically, when you look at it, like the prophet is lost, and never did anything like this before, where he

00:02:17--> 00:02:47

actually punished a whole group of people. And a lot of a lot of Muslims who study this way, you know, struggle with it with the concept. And this is all put into place. And if there's an issue that you don't find comfortable, if you find them to not, or you find it uncomfortable to talk about. So that was going to bring it up. And it's going to require you to, to submit to accept, to obey and to listen to Allah subhanaw taala. Even if it's uncomfortable, even if you don't agree with how the Prophet was molesting them, and just how they dealt with mental Cornella, that day, that doesn't matter. That's how we dealt with it. That's the ruling of Allah subhanaw taala. And you

00:02:47--> 00:03:20

accept it, whether you find it to work with your personal narrative, or if it doesn't, and when you start thinking like that, by the way, life becomes easier. You don't have to, you don't have to agree with every single detail in the deen, you have to agree with the fundamentals of the principles of the faith. When you find yourself in alignment with those principles. When you find those principles cater to your, to your logic and to your rationale and to what you observe within the universe, then you're good, you don't have to agree with every single detail. There will be details that you don't like, and that's fine. That's okay. You don't have to like it all. You don't

00:03:20--> 00:03:57

have to love it all. But you have to follow it all. You have to obey it all. There's a difference here. You don't have to enjoy it. Oh, that's that's not the point. Sometimes we we indulge in an egocentric way of thought, where we start looking at Islam and expecting that we have to enjoy literally everything Allah subhanaw taala says, not necessarily, you know your child and your son and your dog don't enjoy every command that you give them. However, they have to follow them. It's within their best interest and they don't they usually are quite often or most likely will pay for that later on in their Janya in their later years when they don't.

00:03:59--> 00:04:17

So what happened with metal coil after they betrayed the prophets? I said and prayed that Muslims almost ended Islam completely. They didn't almost cause a loss. No, they almost caused a complete annihilation of Muslims. And they betrayed the Prophet salallahu Salam not during the time of peace, you know, they betrayed during a time of war.

00:04:18--> 00:04:53

Their betrayal was during a time of war and had it not been for the grace of Allah Subhan to the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and did you know that Allah Subhana Allah sent those knives in the wind and the end brother? No, I am who was able to I need to cause this fitna between them it probably would have worked out and the Muslims would have been crushed from both the north and the south. And if you remember that's what I said at the beginning of the story is general common folk pickle, right let me let me come in they came from from above you from under from from beneath you from under you, north and south and they were almost completely taken out the Muslims.

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

So the Prophet Solomon was commanded by Allah management came to give him a specific command go go over to when he called

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

Whatever you do not sleep tonight you don't take off your your your army suit and until you go to any whatever. And the and they set a siege around the forts have been in court ala for 20 Nights. It wasn't it was it was almost as long as the Battle of Zab itself. It was almost as long as the battle itself maybe a bit less, but it was very similar to it. And the prophets, I send them stay, they're telling the guy that you have you have to surrender or they surrender or we will keep this siege going. And we may come in it with force. Now the interesting part is that people have been quietly inside could have could have stayed under the siege for months, they had enough provision for almost

00:05:36--> 00:06:06

a year. However the Muslims are on the other side didn't have enough provision for for a few weeks. And subhanAllah is the opposite. The people inside or you know won't be able to food you have enough resources, we're good, but the people outside don't and yet Allah subhanaw taala will be him, which is the last three that we recited any Last time we asked to either which ones that are Latina, baharu Whom mean annual keytab you know, so you'll see him and lots of hugs are brought down those who were who stood by the Confederates from the people of the book talking about when you Karela military I'll see him from their forts

00:06:08--> 00:06:41

equilibrium or robbing he filled their hearts with with fear for it went up to the moon. What so you don't wanna Federica a group of them, you, you punish, you executed another group you took as prisoners. But actually what happened was the siege went on for 20 days. And it could have long gone on for longer. But Subhan Allah, Allah subhanaw taala, one of his one of his, you know, one of his soldiers fear, it was put in the hearts of the people have been pulled over. And they panicked. And when they panic, they start to ask their leaders that we want to surrender want to surrender to Mohammed and his and their leaders are telling them we don't have to, we're good for like six

00:06:41--> 00:07:12

months, we're going for a year, there's no reason for us to surrender, but people panicked. And their leaders no matter how much they tried to calm people down and give them hope and give them any inner strength or bravery. They couldn't they panic, they want to surrender. And they did. And they did surrender against the advice of their leaders. Now why did their leaders not want to surrender because he was going to be executed? These two leaders who betrayed the the trust that are gonna get this execution so that for them it was self serving? No, no, we can't, we cannot surrender, but they did. And when they did, they said yellow Muhammad, we don't accept your New York.

00:07:14--> 00:07:48

We don't want your judgment upon us. If we surrender, we want the judgment of Saddam. And while he's always been our ally throughout throughout the years, we want his judgment, not yours. So the Prophet has always said it's a fine, let's give you his his judgments. So another thing is that what actually happened on the day of convenient for Leila wasn't the judgment of the prophets lie Selim. It was a judgment of Saddam and was one of the Sahaba, who was well, who was an ally of them. For many years, it was well educated in how the Jews and what rulings the Torah had, or what the Jews used in terms of rulings of war. So they thought he was going to give a very lenient judgment, but

00:07:48--> 00:07:54

he didn't, he said, The leaders will be executed, and the possessions will be taken everyone else who will be evacuated to labor.

00:07:56--> 00:08:12

And some narrations talk about huge numbers of people executed that day. Now, I when I was in university, I was my third year, I did a study on the numbers for this specific story. Because when you go and look at the numbers for this story, the range from 40 to 900.

00:08:13--> 00:08:48

Like if you look at all the different books that talk about this story, specifically, and how many people were executed that day, then the range goes from 40 to 900 people now that is a huge difference. It's a huge difference, what is 4900 You're talking more than 20 times 20 fold the number from one generation to the other. And there are other generations that talk about it within within the 15 or 16 number. Now when I say I believe it's closer to 1617. Well, you say well, that's just because you know, you don't want no but there's actually evidence to support that the numbers were much less than they're given than they were given to us because the prophets I said, I'm Amara

00:08:48--> 00:09:12

Oh, I'm on I sat and took them Casilla to whom that those who were carrying storage who fight, were prepared to fight the Muslims, those are the ones who were executed for treason, and the rest were evacuated. Regardless of the details of the story, which is not the point of this debate. today. I'm not interested in getting all the details and arguing to evidence. It is one of those stories that we find difficulty talking about as Muslims and when we're talking about as with non Muslims, we don't know.

00:09:13--> 00:09:20

We submit and we will be Allah subhana wa Tada. We accept his ruling whether we told me like it or not, there's a whole point of utiliza

00:09:21--> 00:09:55

whether you're comfortable or not, whether it's your cup of tea or not, when he commands you Subhana wa Tada, you submit immediately Sometimes the reason that you don't want to submit his fear, like the first story, which is the big the most difficult of all, the talking about the Battle of the Confederates, when the Muslims were, were literally scared to be massacred, and they stood they had to stand their ground and face and face their enemy and not be cowards. But as we go through the sutra, you're gonna find other situations where they're obeying Allah subhanaw taala is difficult but for a different reason. And this is an example the story of many coilin the two three is at the

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

end of this chapter

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

is something that we struggle with in terms

00:10:00--> 00:10:16

Understanding why it happened and how it happened. But we submit to Allah subhanho. We accepted it both ways. Okay. So that's I just wanted to kind of add that to the, to what I talked about last time today, you will start from 28. to Now we start a completely new chapter within the sutra, it's going to be equally as difficult

00:10:17--> 00:10:26

to understand how to deal with meaning the situation is very difficult, but it's not physical this time is not based on fear. It's not based on any of the

00:10:27--> 00:11:00

being brave or not being brave, fearing for your life or not fearing for your life, here's a different story. What was the story here? So within the fifth, sixth or seven theory, we're not 100% Sure. When the Muslims started making a bit more, they were coming a bit more wealthy than they were within the first couple of years of Medina. The Prophet said there was more faith, there was more of a Nima they were within the battles that happened and the total height that Allah subhanaw taala, granted the Muslims, they were making a bit more wealth. So with that increase of wealth, the whys of the prophets of Allah, how do you send them expected their

00:11:01--> 00:11:09

financial situation to improve because if you go it till this day, you can see there are actually many

00:11:10--> 00:11:45

duplicates of the houses of the prophets, the wives of the prophets, I send them they exist in Medina, you ever go to Medina, there's a museum that you can go and see. And if you will, you will find is that the houses or the wives of the prophets, I send them the ceiling was basically just like almost my height. So someone a bit of taller than me would have to kind of put his head down to get in there very, very small, small homes very, very small. The walls were were mud and rock, and there was really no facilities inside, and they didn't have much food inside. There's really no plate, no place to store it anyway. And the profits items wives, whom he passed away and left

00:11:45--> 00:12:14

behind, and I'll count them for you just to so I shall declare the Allahu anha and Hafsa MacDonald, viola and him and Xena had been judged as de Rhodiola wiener and Xena Benzema and Hillary you know, the Allahu Aina and Joe Adria have been to Harris or the hola Juan and Maimunah Khazaria YOLO and Sophia, and Wu materia even knock them out and other law minor and almost dilemma hinge in 2 million Macedonia or the low end if you add to that

00:12:15--> 00:12:15


00:12:16--> 00:12:47

would have nine, one of them had passed away during his right and soda Benzema Karachi, Nadella who I know so he had nine wives, and one of them have passed away, when this story was revealed was a number of the line had passed away when the story was revealed. But these wives, all of them, of course, the prothesis, almost married them from different tribes and different backgrounds, different different religions mean there was a lady who was was was previously a Jewish woman, and a lady was previously a Christian woman. And some of them were from his tribe. And some of them were not from his tribe, from different tribes all around Arabia, uniting the peninsula, and bringing

00:12:47--> 00:13:14

people together because marriage always does that. Now, when you know that there was one of the wives of the Prophet was assembled from your tribe, that makes it more likely for you to hold on to this message altogether. And that was one of the big reasons because there are other reasons, but that wasn't a big one. Now these wives were all exceptional women, all them. Each one has a story. That's something we should definitely teach our daughters about each season the stories of these heavy Baramulla Debbie Sophia, she wasn't a wife yet, but he was going to be and these wives all have exceptional stories of the law. 100 germane,

00:13:16--> 00:13:32

but they lived on very little provision, very, very little provision, almost nothing. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sometimes after a battle or after any attack from Allah Subhanallah any any victory, his is his portion, or he has no seat from the from the from.

00:13:34--> 00:13:47

The bounty was was quite, it was a respectable amount, sometimes in the 1000s of sheep, head of sheep, or sometimes a lot a lot of money, yet he would come home so Allah Alios him every time almost empty handed, almost with nothing.

00:13:49--> 00:14:19

Literally nothing at all, as if as if it didn't happen, didn't happen at all. Now the wives would hear of course, about what went on me the wives, someone would tell them that no, no. There was a lot of bounty, why didn't you get some money or whatever friends they will my husband who was a hobby Hamdulillah he brought back all this feat and aneema and now we have like all this clothing and this didn't you bring energy and the wife of the Prophet was obviously there. No, he didn't bring back anything. So the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam were very pious ladies and very,

00:14:21--> 00:14:51

some of the best women to ever live. They gathered they had a small meeting. And they decided that they're going to ask the prophets of Allah How do you send them for an increase of their provision? Now I want to look at Bob and and other others who have been who whose fathers have these other wives when it comes to the latest tech city. Allah rasool Allah even in Africa was selenium in malema, but they're lucky. Please don't ask the prophets I send him for any increase of money if you want. Any provision asked me I'm your father I will give you but please do not start with Allah. And I'm not gonna say the same thing to Aisha.

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

But they came together and he said, Okay, we have to ask him for more. And they did. They asked him some advice and the story

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

He's known, I just want to say I'm got very upset

00:15:03--> 00:15:36

from the few times in this era, where we could identify that he was extremely upset, solicited and not not worrying. And I don't know that he was up, he was unhappy. Work Sam Elliot holiday hinda Shahara he took an oath that he will not come to there. He's out who's at the house of his wives for a month, you will enter the houses for a month, don't Medaka Michel, Alberta, who I'm not sure it was like an annual tree house, something something similar to a tree house. And he stayed there now, because people didn't know the details of what happened and why this all happened. What went on. A rumor began in Medina that the prophets of Allah, Allah, Islam had divorced his wives all them. And

00:15:36--> 00:16:10

of course, everyone freaked out. It was this big thing, no one talks about anything else. Everyone was very worried. They were very upset, especially the fathers of these ladies or their brothers or their tribes, because they took a lot of pride in, you know, one of their one of their own being mean, the Mother of the Believers. So when they heard the rumor that the Prophet slice element, divorced his wives, there was that and then there was also the their sadness that the Prophet SAW, I said, I must be very upset for him to do that. It's not enough for him to do that. That means he's not he's unhappy. And something's not going well. And they feel and they felt for him at least,

00:16:10--> 00:16:42

until they were all gathering in the midst of it almost every night, and talking and wondering what's going on. And he slept in his machinima only coming out for periods not talking about the issue. And he has one of one of the servants standing from the door, not letting anyone in. Let me tell the story, so that we need to understand what they are talking about. So I thought when he heard this, he decided he had to find out what happened because it was a rumor. They weren't sure 100% whether he actually divorced his wives or not. So he went and he find found the sermon from the door because his Rasulullah please ask him permission to come in. So he goes in, he comes up God,

00:16:42--> 00:16:44

let me look Rasulullah he doesn't and grant you permission to come in.

00:16:46--> 00:16:48

Do you tell him that Omar was on the door?

00:16:49--> 00:16:53

Alberto, and how do you tell him that it's like not just any automotive?

00:16:55--> 00:17:04

Left? He's like, Oh, so this is so it comes back an hour later. He stares in the eye level. So he's asking me for permission again. Yes, the problem is he does not grant him permission.

00:17:05--> 00:17:13

So you can see he's very upset. Elisa is very, this is a very uncharacteristic thing. They're not used to that he comes a third time and the

00:17:14--> 00:17:22

Prophet SAW I said, I'm glad some permission, you oxen or the Allahu Anhu he looks the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is laying down on a hustler. You're a hustler here

00:17:24--> 00:17:58

if you ever seen it, it's now it's made of plastic. Nowadays if you if you see a house it was made out of plastic. It's it's very thin piece of plastic that are going perpendicular to each other like 1000 going this way and 1000 going that way. It's extremely uncomfortable to sit down on extremely uncomfortable, it's just one of the most uncomfortable things in the world. And back then it was made from leaf leaf, not leaf as an English but in Arabic leaf is a certain type of fabric. It's very, it's a very thick fabric so it has high level of endurance. But a very low level of luxury is very, very uncomfortable. So the brothers I sent him is he's reclining on the hustle users kind of

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

just laying on his side

00:18:01--> 00:18:08

on the block walks in he sees the profit slice and then I saw Sam sees I'm gonna sit up so what you notice is the low I know is his the profit

00:18:09--> 00:18:13

side that he was reclining on is all checker

00:18:14--> 00:18:31

squares because of because of the hustler he looks up and this machine is adequate this tree house this is where the profits are then put whatever provision of food they kept for his wives. He looked up to those shelves usually these shelves are filled with an Arabic they call them or Mooney if you come from which is just basically

00:18:32--> 00:18:35

desert or jars of whatever

00:18:36--> 00:18:55

zaytoun or tumbler or whatever the whatever we put into the preservatives. So he looks and he only sees one jar that has half of it and the rest are empty. But for karma, the Allahu Anhu in our local pubs and he felt he's gonna sobbed and he felt he felt bad. And a tear ran down his face.

We don't You don't curse the dunya we don't hate to dunya because without dunya there is no Akela without dunya there is no agenda without doubt in dunya the Prophet, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam lived in dunya all the prophets lived the Quran was revealed. Dunya is the dunya of Allah subhanaw taala is an important part of existence. There would be really nothing

00:24:41--> 00:24:59

if it didn't exist. And hieratic dunya is the low life. It's a mentality it's a way of life in dunya is just a time frame is just a time where life exists in and before you know before hereafter and higher Dunya is a way of life. It's a

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

It's a life that is based on low desires or low self whims, and just personal personal gains or personal interest. So it higher to dunya to live a low life. So if you want the low life mean the life of just fulfilling your whims and desires, you want money, you want to provision you want to enjoy yourself, you want to do whatever we want to do buy whatever you want to buy, and be able to tell people look what I have, and I have this and and we do that quite often. Sometimes we don't do it as consciously, but we do it. Nonetheless, where we kind of show off what we have sometimes indirectly.

00:25:35--> 00:26:09

Ask ask your wives and your did women do it way better than men do it but they do it all the time, where you always show off something that you have, and it hurts the other person. And so if that's what you want was the net to adornments of this highlighted dunya. So your focus is heightened during the low life, the lonely life or the life of desires and whims and self interest, the personal interest and you want the adornments that come with that, that Eileen, photonic dial means come to him come to us now he's a figure of speech not supposed to go anywhere really, but smarter. It means come along, we'll make takuna I will give we will give you is what it means two things. One

00:26:09--> 00:26:21

is pleasure meaning we will pleasure you will give you the pleasure that you want. And it also means that enough after that is given to the woman when she's divorced, when you divorce your wife, she you owe her much matar Metalla roof.

00:26:22--> 00:26:51

You have to for the time that she is not allowed to marry another person which is that which is a certain day two to three months or three months around that then you have to you have to take care of her provision, you have to give her enough money to take care of herself. And it also means also to give them pleasure and I think that's the more improper way understand. We'll make Declan no we will give you the money that you want the provision that you want that the adornments of it highlighted dunya that you want, what will Saturday was gonna means I will divorce you

00:26:52--> 00:27:25

there so don't tell them if you want the dunya and it's adornments and the life of of ease and money and Janya and pleasures then tell them come I will give you money. I will give you as much money as you want. And then I will divorce you how will I diversity with anger? No sir ah hen Jamila, I will divorce you in a very beautiful way meaning Jimmy that means beautiful. What it means here is that we will we will depart in a very civil manner mean there will be no hard feelings. There'll be no hatred. We won't say bad things about you. I won't talk about her family. She talking about my family. I tell you when the secrets of how horrible a person she is, and there have been deals the

00:27:25--> 00:27:38

same to me. No, no, none of that said Ah, hon. Jimena. We will Yeah, you just I was we came together but him out Oh, we came together in matrimony in a proper manner, we will depart it will part ways in a proper manner as well.

00:27:41--> 00:28:20

Obviously, this is not the point here at Yanni and the surah. But please, please, when we talk about divorce, when we think about divorce, Danny, there's a cultural Yanni. I don't know how to I don't know how to put this. But there's a collective understanding of divorce, a collective cultural understanding of divorce that needs to be put in the garbage bin. And we have to substitute it with the proper Islamic way of looking at divorce. Divorce is not a weapon that you use against your wife so that she stays in line and does what you what you want her to do. Divorce is a decision just like marriage is a decision is to make sure that you don't have to live your life miserable. Neither says

00:28:20--> 00:28:40

gee, that's what divorce is there for, is to make sure that when you got married, if you guys try everything, try to fix this life, enjoy it, and you exhaust your resources and there's no way you just don't see eye to eye you're not happy. Then we part ways. Just like here. We want to example, here's a perfect example in the Quran, the prophets I send me telling him, Look, this is how I live.

00:28:41--> 00:29:13

If it's money and provision and adornments you want that okay, I will give you enough provision I'll ask Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will give you as much money as you want. And then I will divorce you in a proper manner Jamila in a way that has no hatred has no hard feelings. We're not enemies, and I'll let you live your life. I can't live like that. I'm just saying that this is how the Prophet says if you were if he were to divorce, then this is how he would do it. If he did not do it, obviously because the answer is we'll talk about in a second. But how did it happened? This is how it's going to be happened. We're not going to part ways with hatred, we're not going to part ways

00:29:13--> 00:29:55

with animosity. Yet we do that so often now in our times that it's become the norm. The norm is that when we divorce it's it's an impossible situation. We cannot speak to our previous or ex spouses ever again we can't speak to their families we don't know how to co parent our children we don't know we can't seem to coexist in the same country. Why? Why do we have to stay in a smear each other's reputations and speak about we got married it didn't work out. We moved on very simply. Some are hand Jamila, Jamila, beautiful like when we are who was told for Sabra and Jimmy be perseverance in a beautiful way. Don't be persevere, be perseverant objecting to Allah subhanaw taala angry and

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

upset with what he gave, you know, do it in a way where you will be accepted his destiny soprano.

00:30:00--> 00:30:29

data, the same thing comes on when we do divorce, we do it in a proper manner. With goodness of our hand, Jimmy, I look forward to a time where Muslim men, when they make the decision to divorce, they do it and they're very calm. They're very collected. They make a conscious decision with their wives, they part ways in a civil manner, and they take care of their wives, when their ex wives and financially to make sure that they're good. I look forward to that becoming the norm, which is what the Quran talks about.

00:30:31--> 00:30:57

If you want to learn how to do it, the thing is, we can't learn how to do it the divorce from the prophets, because he never divorced a woman. You never divorced any of his wives, but in this area was a very specific one. Were given had he done it this how he would have done it. Oh, my take on a raccoon, I'll make sure that you're taking care of you're not going to be thrown into the streets with no one to take care of you know, we'll take care of you. And we'll do with no hard feelings. You are on your way. I'm on my way. We hope we keep what we know about each other secret we don't speak about of it.

00:30:58--> 00:31:18

When Quinton to read in Allah, Allah sudo and on the other hand, if you want in your mind what you want is Allah the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala what is the widow and the pleasure of the prophets? I send them What doubt I'll ask you and the success in the Day of Judgment. These are the estimated words that are behind it. For in Allah. I didn't tell my senior team in Cana

00:31:19--> 00:31:35

Lima indeed Allah subhanaw taala has prepared I have prepared a little machine out to those of you who are going to behave with excellence regarding this manner. A gentle malema, amen, magnificent reward. Now they're always going to be talked about in a minute and as we go along,

00:31:36--> 00:31:40

but this is what the Prophet SAW Selim came to his wives. He said, Yeah.

00:31:41--> 00:32:17

I'm gonna read somebody out. Listen to them. Don't ask me immediately. Talk to your parents first. And this is what Allah subhanho told me to tell you to recite it to them for the cooler ha ha ha rasool Allah, what is tissue away and I don't want to take advice from him act out Allah Allah SUTA wind tunnel, how can I choose Allah and His Prophet and defend the hereafter? Well, I know that he can but I'll never ask you for anything else again. And he did it for half son who said and I know Habib and Xena Munna enjoy it, Sophie, and they all answered the same way. The elephant Allah, we're happy, we're sorry, we shouldn't never said anything. It's a sacrifice. Right? Imagine that this is

00:32:17--> 00:32:54

what you're going to have to live like. He's telling you Look, you're gonna live with me. These are live. You see the simplicity that we're in. It's not getting any better. I could make this better anytime. I am not poor. So my son was not financially poor. You cannot categorize him as a poor person. You would categorize him as a selfless generous person, because he had. And then he gave, he didn't take for himself. He treated his wives the way he treated themselves. He wasn't eating at his friend's house and coming in starving is wife, no, he, they were equal. This is my house. This is how I run my house. If you if you're good, I don't know Santa will stay together, you'll be open

00:32:54--> 00:33:09

with me Be my wife, it'll be my wife and Yamanaka. And if not, then I will give you as much money as you need, and send you on your way. No hard feelings are going to tell you that idea. You're not going to be shamed. You're not going to be your reputation can be smeared, you're gonna have as much money as you want. But with me, I can't do this.

00:33:11--> 00:33:16

What why did they choose? And what would someone today choose? And is that an easy choice?

00:33:17--> 00:33:27

I forget about any of the concept of this choice is given to a lady. But it could easily you could also see it from a man's perspective as well. Would you be okay with that?

00:33:28--> 00:34:03

Right, submitting to Allah subhanaw taala. Even in a situation like this, you're not required to understand the difficulty of this. It's a very, it's a very sticky situation is hard to accept to live in a lower socio financial status not associated with higher social status, and low financial status for the rest of your life. Everyone married here knows what he and his wife are waiting for. What are you waiting for? The raise. When you have enough money in the bank? He's always we're always waiting for money. Take all your money from this marriage. I don't know what's left in it. I'm not sure. We'll try it. Maybe try that one day just for the fun of it.

00:34:04--> 00:34:13

Don't try it and end up divorcing me not once. But try it. Try ask okay, you know this, how are we gonna live I'm not gonna live any better than this. Even if I have more, whatever more we haven't the giveaway

00:34:14--> 00:34:46

can have that discussion just for the benefit of hanging, having that discussion. And you'll find that a lot of our lives a lot of our marriages or institutions are built on a promise of financial improvement. A lot of ours Yaiba institutions are based on that, that we're gonna we're gonna stomach this difficulty for a while, but inshallah you're gonna start making money when you start and you don't start making money. You either get impatient with you okay, and inshallah you're 40 Now, where's your why why are you still making 1520 An hour what what's wrong? Where's our savings because they started getting impatient. Right? They want my unless they're working themselves and

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

they you know make more than you then you're accounting

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

for example, but regardless, there's always this promise or this hope of a financial improvement that we're gonna get better. The situation we are in right now is not enough. You'll

00:35:00--> 00:35:30

In an apartment, you're hoping for a townhouse you're in town I was shopping for a house you have a house you open for a bigger house. You have a car you hoping for two you have two you hoping for better one newer ones. You have all that, then you're hoping maybe to travel a bit more. I need to own more property to be able to send your kids to get better schools. There's always a financial goal and marriage that keeps you you know, moving what happens if we ended that? Would you still find happiness in the marriage we still be able to, to connect it okay, this is how we're going to live for the rest of our lives. Is that acceptable? This is basically what the Prophet SAW. I said,

00:35:30--> 00:35:40

I'm told his wives, this is how it is. And it wasn't a regular situation. It wasn't like a, a financial status that you can cope with. No, it was something where you they were sometimes hungry.

00:35:41--> 00:35:48

Or sometimes it wasn't a food in the house. Three, four days in a row, no food, and then maybe the fifth day there's food, right, Monica?

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

Ramadan, Salah

00:35:52--> 00:36:23

Tarbiat. They never ate three days in a row. The Prophet saw so many of his wives never ate three days in a row, two days of the most, the most consecutive times. Then the third day, there's definitely not none the food, they never ate three nights in a row, not because he didn't have money, but because he chose to live that life. You are not obligated to live that life. You are not required to live that life. You're not even encouraged to live that life. But that's the life he chose for himself. So Allah Allah you Salam, right, so that you could never ever, you could never ever use this financial situation against him, or use that as an excuse for us not to follow him

00:36:23--> 00:37:00

some of the audio Salam, just so that you and I would never have that excuse to say, well, he had no, he had nothing. And he made sure consciously not to have anything. So you can't say Well, ah, he was he did well, he was well off. You had a lot of money. Allah subhanaw taala granted him. Yeah. And because it's hard for you to follow suit, amen. Ali has said that with Ali, he said, and these were kings, they ruled they talk to animals and gentlemen, it's hard, you can only learn certain things from them. But for understand why the IRS before was like a candidate confederacy Allah, He also had an hygena I swear indeed, we will find within the character of Rasulullah a perfect role

00:37:00--> 00:37:34

model? Had he been much well off financially than all of us, it would be hard for us to follow him. So how do you send him. So this is his choice that these wives were given, they were given this choice, either choose to live like this, or choose, I need to go and when you go, you won't be smeared, you won't be stained, you won't be mistreated, but no hard feelings, there'll be money, but you live on your own now. And they all chose us with a loss of less than a man lived with him. And they live the rest of their lives like that. Money coming in immediately being given out. But after this, the interesting part here is after that moment, I lay aside the Westerdam always brought the

00:37:34--> 00:37:55

money home first. And the wives took on the responsibility of distributing it to people before he would do it on the site on sight, like at the moment and go home with nothing. Now he brought home and they would distribute it and have so we would put them in bags and give them to people and so it is a gentleman was enamored they will do this now because they agreed because they understand. But how hard they're going to sell why?

00:37:57--> 00:38:09

Talks about the difficult situations? How difficult is that choice? It is not it's different. It's a different type of difficulty than yo Mila ZURB the fear of losing your life. That's a different type of difficulty. But this is just as difficult.

00:38:10--> 00:38:39

This is just as difficult. I think in some situations, this is worse. In some situations, I can imagine this being in harder to accept that this is how we're not going higher by choice not by force. Again, another aspect of it if you don't make a lot of money because you just aren't lucky enough or you're not suitable, your risk is limited. That's one thing. The hope is still there. But if by choice, you're not going to live better than this. That's hard to accept that even if we're given more we're not going to live better. Yes, even if you're given more you're not gonna live better.

00:38:41--> 00:39:06

Right? There's this I don't know. I'm not sure anymore. It's hard. It's hard to make that choice. It's hard to accept that and yet the prophets Elijah and I chose that for himself at least not to sell him and his wives accepted it but there was a difficulty there was upset he was upset for less than for a while. And this story that has some difficulty to tell. Okay, so I hope that for some we're gonna read two more I hadn't Sharla we have enough time okay, wait two more. Yeah, and he's

00:39:07--> 00:39:15

an OBE many deeming cannot be fair, he shut him team by Gina.

00:39:27--> 00:39:28


00:39:32--> 00:39:33

what can

00:39:35--> 00:39:36

he see

00:39:42--> 00:39:43

I mean

00:39:45--> 00:39:48

he was really he was funny.

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


00:40:00--> 00:40:01

Hannah, what do you mean

00:40:08--> 00:40:11

he's calling Karina.

00:40:15--> 00:40:49

Gonna be called twice and he said to be the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in this surah are going to be called on within this chapter within this part of the sutra twice. This is the first one and the second one shall we'll study next time, but there's a lot of importance in the second one, but this one here is a continuation to the contract that they made with the prophets. And this is the data we cited it before we already explained, is basically a verbal contract, if you want to dunya if you want the life of desires and provision and money and adornments, then fine, we will give it to you and you can go live on your own You're Not You can't live with the Prophet similar

00:40:49--> 00:41:29

sentiment his wife anymore. But if you choose the pleasure of Allah and the pleasure of the Prophet salallahu Salam and the and the success in the Hereafter, then we will give you a magnificent reward. Now that is a contract. They said, No, we want Allah rasool Allah when a Donalda they chose that, now that I go, and they explain something to the Denisa and the B, that works for them, or the Allahu Anhu Niger made, and then it's a law that exists within Islam, generally speaking, so what is it the only certain nibio wives of the messenger or the Prophet? Man, yeah, teaming couldn't be for his shirt in MOBA. You know, those of you who commit Yeti before Heisha is a figure of speech. That

00:41:29--> 00:41:46

means those of you who commit a sin for Heisha didn't obey your music Kabira a sin that is a movie that is clear that is obvious means a public sin, a sin that people can shame you for. Because there are sins that people don't know about, meaning no one can I guess no one can say anything about it, because we know that you did it. And that doesn't

00:41:47--> 00:42:01

mean there's a major sin. That is that is obvious that is public that can be seen and heard about and becomes a matter of public county knowledge and you can be shamed for. So those of you who committed for hijama, you know, a sin that is public that is known that is seen, you don't

00:42:02--> 00:42:16

think she will be punished twice, meaning that there's a normal punishment for it that you get in dunya. And in your symptoms early enough, you know, whatever it is, you will take it times two, you will be punished twice the amount.

00:42:17--> 00:42:19

You know, you think about that? Well,

00:42:20--> 00:42:30

but why? And how is that fair? Right, right? When when son was taken out of the group and say, Okay, you, you're going to be punished more than everyone else was something you do.

00:42:31--> 00:42:56

Sometimes that happens, right? Your dad must have done that to you, or at least a few times when you were younger, or you get punished more than your siblings are in the classroom, you get punished more than your classmates. Now, why is that? Okay? And why would that be the case? In the Quran, there's a specific reason for this, for them to be punished more, no, none of none of them, of course, I committed the fashion will be you know, but because this law is existence of this law is extremely important for us to understand with.

00:42:58--> 00:43:41

With high status, comes higher responsibility. When you are given more potential, your reward is going to your lead, the limit of your reward is higher, but the limit of your punishment is also lower. So there are people who are who their potential is limited, it's only up here. And if they do really well, but if they don't do very well, their punishment is only down here. It's not It's limited as well, but the others who the potential of their reward is the sky's the limit. But on the on the same, on the same note, their punishment limit is also is equal in both ways. It's like if you go if you open the door this way, then you can open it equally on the other side. Only for it to

00:43:41--> 00:43:57

be fair, so if you're going to get so you can probably think what's what the other guy is going to be about if he's telling them that if you commit a sin fashion will be you know, just like other people committed you could be that could be a sin that Publix in a public major sin, then you will be punished twice you

00:43:58--> 00:44:32

think you'll be punished twice the amount of punishment? What kind of Alleycat Allah He has he'll indeed that has been that is easy for Allah subhanaw taala to do you mean? What do you mean by that being easy mean meaning the concept of that is easy. And it's not a difficult concept for you to understand for Allah Subhan Allah put it Allah like that is simple. Why? Because the other is an ottoman. kondalilla He was Sunni and those who show obedience means obedience or submission, and that's without point of service. And those of you who obey Allah and His Prophet with IML follow her and perform the best of deeds that these are the are created to perform. No, we give them their

00:44:32--> 00:44:59

reward. Metal attain twice, they get twice the reward. Why attend in Korea as a bonus, we have prepared for them a very unique and noble provision may there's something waiting for them in Jannah that is unique towards Korean means unique by the way. I know we use it sometimes for generosity. When you do mean generosity by it, you mean generosity because generosity is such a unique attribute but the

00:45:00--> 00:45:40

concept of column is uniqueness. So I didn't know how it's going crema, we are prepared for them a unique provision in gender. So a bonus. So when Allah subhanaw taala gives you the potential to be extremely rewarded to be given the highest of rewards, be very careful, he has also given you any the possibility of being extremely punished on the other hand, so just be aware be, don't be afraid of that as a person. And that is Allah, this is what the wives of the Prophet saw it and we're told that you, it's twice as doubled is double for you. But on both sides, when you make a mistake is double the punishment you do well is double the reward because of how high the stakes are, you are

00:45:40--> 00:46:16

putting up with a very difficult lifestyle, you're gonna live with the prophets of Allah Islam, with very little provision for the rest of your life, no hope of getting better. We take away the hope of financially you ever improving, that is very difficult. But if you if you do that is trying to face the reward. But if you don't, it's twice the punishment because you're with Rasulullah. So listen, you're representing him, you're representing Islam, so that punishment is doubled as well. I feel the same thing works for Islamic law. But I want to draw your attention to how this works for us, as well as Muslims, who were born within Muslim families, brought up with it with Muslim values, you

00:46:16--> 00:46:51

also have a much higher potential from those who weren't, you know, human beings, brothers and sisters, within this world who were born as Muslims, were not raised with Muslim values were not given the same chance that you were given. So maybe their limits of high reward is not as high as yours. Right? Maybe it is. Maybe it isn't. But but they also have a lower limit in terms of punishment. And for you and I, the, the potential of our reward is almost limitless. The sky is the limit because you you have so much you can offer. Because you're born a Muslim. You've been practicing this now for a long time, you have the ability to spread the message and be a great

00:46:51--> 00:47:31

Muslim, but on the other hand, you make a mistake. And then it's Spencer if you need and I'll give you examples of that just this concept is the ISIL divide in your heart. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us and known how do you know this hadith narrated by Muslim? I think you know what I'm going to say. He says, Oh, well, meant to set out to be him on Nelio milky amadores who will enter Janome first, those who will be thrown into the into the hellfire. First people, no one before them. And he can't suddenly send them a scholar. A habit of the Quran May Allah subhanaw taala protect us all inshallah. Someone who was a philanthropist, someone who was very generous with his with his

00:47:31--> 00:48:03

with his money in his time. And a martyr, Shahid, those, these are the best of the best, right? These are the cream of the crop. When you whenever you hear when you hear someone great you think one of these things, either he's more he's a man Montero we have someone who's been building hospitals or he's someone who I needed but who fought and died for the sake of Allah. And they're the first people to be thrown in. Why because they did it for the wrong reason. Because they didn't do it trying to get close to Allah subhanaw taala. He didn't do it with sincerity. They did it with three with shidduch, with Yanni just trying to build their own status in life. They weren't

00:48:03--> 00:48:29

interested in Allah were like, well, how is that because of this law? Had they done it for the sake of Allah, they would have been in for those Allah Allah, maybe you and I don't have that opportunity. Maybe no matter how hard you work, we're not going to make it that high up but they were going to make it that high up had they stuck to the the their potential of reward was limitless. And thus the the potential of their punishment is also limitless, and they're gonna be the first people to be punished, understanding that the idea

00:48:31--> 00:48:55

is, to quote Spider Man right with great power comes great responsibility. This is what he learned from that, if anything, but that's it. When you're given the potential given the power, you're given the ability, you're given a higher responsibility and the stakes are higher on both sides of the spectrum, whether it's reward or whether it's punishment, Inshallah, we'll stop okay, we'll start with the end with that next time we'll we'll recite the
