mean, normal saline, saline vertical syndrome Hamadan early use IBS, main or bad. So in short, how do you continue from from where we left off last time

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

we stopped

00:00:13--> 00:00:22

at number 34. So we start from number 35 is the last day on the page. And it's a long one. And I remember when I was younger, it was the third

00:00:23--> 00:00:51

level, in terms of reading it with one breath we had our shift was very creative in terms of giving us little challenges. So one of the challenges he would give us is to read Long Island, the Quran with one breath, of course, getting all that to read, none of them would do it improperly. So this was the third level, if you did the first two, then this was your third, I can't remember what the first two are for my life. I can't remember anymore what they were. But remember that, that I made it up to the third level. And it took me like a year to get this one. And it was very hard, it's very long, you can see it's 123456

00:00:52--> 00:01:13

PAGE of 1422. Four turning to the beach. So number 35 is with Liza. So it's a bit long as you can see, and it but the reason that is so long, and the reason that it is the way it is, is an important story and an important part of understanding. So it lines up again. So it talks about everything that is uncomfortable. That is awkward, and just not

00:01:14--> 00:01:31

you know the most enjoyable thing to speak about within the dean. And that's that's the focus of the student, the theme of this sutra. And the cluster of students that come after from my sub to Zoomer is submission, ba obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. It looks at the concept of submission and obedience from a number of different

00:01:33--> 00:02:06

aspects or number different angles. The first angle, the most difficult angle, which is what sort of talks about is the longest of the suitors. And the first one talks about submitting to Ilana beat, obeying Him when the situation is difficult when you're not comfortable doing it specifically when you're not comfortable. When, for example, the first story in the surah was the story of Elijah, the actual battle of the Confederates, when they came in, they had to dig the trench. And that was by far the scariest time in the life of the prophet Sallallahu Sallam and the Muslims as a group. So it was obeying Allah submitting, when you're in extreme fear, when you know that you're probably gonna

00:02:06--> 00:02:36

get killed, or you're probably gonna lose family members in the process. So this sort of came and talked about that and it went into the story we did on three and a half pages, went in detail and talked about the feelings that were going through the hearts of the Muslims and, and those who had less emotion and those who were hypocrites and those who are the only diseases in their hearts and it talked about their the way they responded and the way they were supposed to respond. And they the way they would have responded how certain things happened even though these things did not happen. It's a very interesting aspect. The second story in the sutra talks about talk to the wives of the

00:02:36--> 00:03:14

Prophet salallahu Salam and how for them the lifestyle that he has chosen Alia Southwestern, he had chosen to live a very simple lifestyle even though he had the means to live a bit more luxuriously, how do you want to do but he didn't want to use AutoSum because of a message that he carried to the people he lived with and to the generations that would come after you and I had he lived in a bit with a bit more leisure in his life, then it would be much more difficult for us to follow him somebody said I started to learn from him. So he chose a lifestyle that almost that had his wives No, no hope of financial improvement and for wives that is that is extremely difficult when you get

00:03:14--> 00:03:43

married, you will find that you build your marriage with your wife on how neck inshallah if you use will get better and then after that, inshallah we'll get a house and then you tell her this is how it is it's not getting any better. You know, we this one bedroom apartment is as far as we go. You This could cripple the marriage like literally almost ended. So for some of the wives, they didn't like that and, and they came together and you objected to him, sublicense them to the lifestyle, and he got very Yeah, it was a time when he got extremely upset Ali Asad. So we have nowhere on record that he got as upset as he did during that

00:03:44--> 00:04:15

problem with his wife from a social perspective. He went and he sat in it in an attic or in a tree house, something that where they used to put canned foods or preservatives that they would eat throughout the winter. And you stayed there for a number of days and he wouldn't come out, except for prayer and go back home and speak to anyone in the sahaba. In Oklahoma in the story I told you had to go through a few measures to get the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to respond to him to speak to him. Because they thought that he had divorced his wives but he didn't. He just made an oath that he would not come to their houses for a month. And then he went through with the oath a whole month for

00:04:15--> 00:04:45

29 Nights. He did not go to any of his wives houses. And then these I had came to Seattle so don't tell them this, tell them if they want duniya they want leisure if they want any better a better financial lifestyle then that is fine. We will offer it to them. You can divorce them in a beautiful way Salah and Jamila meaning they can you will part ways with no harsh feelings with no disrespect with no bad words said about them ever and they can live a good lifestyle, but they can't be with you. But if they want to, they want Allah and His Prophet in the hereafter then they have to stay as is. So they all

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

chose to stay with the profit slice and then with the difficult life so there's a very hard story to tell. And then after that commented on it talked about the lifestyle of the wives of the Prophet so I said which were difficult. The whole concept of him having wives was difficult

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

to speak up as I want you to think about these things are things that you don't enjoy sincerely talking about as a Muslim to non Muslims or to Muslims even, you know, the prickly they're not easy. And it talks about the cardinal Tichenor, the importance of making the eye of the woman making her home, the Yanni the

00:05:17--> 00:05:41

pleasure of her eye, or the warmth of the place that she enjoys being in that she wants to spend time and building, and not to do technology not to display her beauty. These are all issues that to me, even in modern modern context resemble your heart to speak. I've tried talking about this, and you'll see on yourself, I mean, these are hard to talk to you. And yet this kind of speaker talks about it, and it tackles it head on now that I am going to start with today.

00:05:43--> 00:06:04

My understanding or the way I look at this is the third chapter of the source or the fourth because the first chapter was was an introduction. And we talked about that in depth. And then the second chapter was talking about the Battle of the Confederacy and the third chapter of talking to the wives of the prophets, all prickly and difficult issues to speak of here is something also difficult, and it's focused on women in Islam, because our four stories that brought this

00:06:05--> 00:06:11

to life are the reason for the revelation of desire for stories. The first story is that

00:06:12--> 00:06:50

my son had been told me I know was Jonathan I thought it was wife. When she came back from Hampshire. She She asked some healthiness and I feel Qurani che la jolla Finisar ha oatmeal Quran has the Quran addressed women at all because she had left early on in Mecca in the second time and then the Brian hadn't really talked about genders at all. And whatever stories were in the Quran of good or bad we're mostly about male prophets or male Yanni criminals, nothing about the women so she asked her is any of the Quran come talk about women just so we know that this issue didn't start in the 21st century? This is something that women talked about 1400 years ago for called Lulu. So she

00:06:50--> 00:07:21

went to the Prophet saw yesterday and said yes will Allah Allah and then he said he left he Hi Bettina herself. Indeed women are in a state of loss and Jani and humility like during the bad news Bacala magic why do you why do you say the column is gonna be shaking and feel Quran? None of the Quran speaks about women. That's the first story second story almost 11 of the Allah who I know once in a time where she was with her husband the Prophet so I said I'm quite jealous of Allah, Malila Anisa use carnival Qurani why is it that I don't see women spoken of within the Quran?

00:07:22--> 00:08:01

Third story, Omar Amara and to save him if God imagine either known Sahabi will outlive the prophets I said to them and defended him on the day of or heard him and the only adventure son by killing sad men because they're very known individual. She also had a similar question and she said yes it Allah Allah and the gala. But equally it men have taken all the hate on Quran whatever. Quran Quran Nisa I always say the Quran speaking about women for its story, that a group of women came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his wives, and they tried to tell them you tell them, why is it that there's no Yanni? No one's talking about why there wasn't the Quran the dress women like what's, what's the

00:08:01--> 00:08:17

deal here. So they the wives of the prophets, I send them all told the opposite of love is what we were told by some of the ladies. So these are four stories, individual stories that you find in the Hadith all narrated as a reason for the revelation of this story. So what is the reason?

00:08:19--> 00:08:41

So what is it? And you're on understanding? Why doesn't the Quran speak about women more often? Right, so I came in acid. And the idea is the perfect answer is very specific in the way that it addresses the issue. Leaving literally no doubt after you read this idea of what the stance or what the importance of women is in the Quran. And it's a very simple one.

00:08:42--> 00:08:44

The simplicity of it is as follows.

00:08:45--> 00:09:00

There's no difference. We talked about men more because there are more famous men in history than women. But everything we say about men applies to women. And everything we say to women applies to men, because remember, remember, I kind of left this out last time, on purpose. It was hard because it's so hard to that I didn't talk about,

00:09:02--> 00:09:37

about the issues of, of development for men remember, and he talked about that. He said it's too specific for women. But then this idea came along, he said, Look, no, they're the same. Whatever we address men, we're addressing women, whenever addressing men we're addressing, we're addressing them back and forth, interchangeably. When we talk about free yoga for men and using the male pronoun or the male narrative, we mean women and if we bring talking about something we're using the female pronoun, well, we mean men as well. And this is takes it down to the, to the core of that of that argument by counting every single good deed that you can possibly do and putting it in both in both

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

plurals so you're gonna find that it is as simple as this in and then the sound masculine plural, the sound feminine plural, then the sound masculine plural, the sound feminine plural for like nine plurals in a row for six lines within one area. What's the point of this? I gotta remember when I was a kid, like, why is it saying look, just in case you misunderstood things, just in case you're not clear on exactly who it is that we're talking to here? Yeah.

00:10:00--> 00:10:30

It's the same, we have no difference we just in Arabic, the the male, the male pronoun is used in case we don't know the gender of who we're talking about, over generalizing about genders, you're gonna use the male pronoun, you'll never, you'll never use just how Arabic works you never use. It's very, it's very, very awkward if you use the female male pronoun. Now for anything, if there's, if it's a group, there's just one male. If there's one man and a million women, and you use a female pronoun in Arabic, it's a weird thing. When you say when you use a female pronoun, whether employer Lauren,

00:10:31--> 00:11:00

singularly, it has to be purely women, there can't be men in the group. If there's males, you're going to use the male pronouns how Arabic words. So the question from women was just to make sure are we included in all of this? Are we included in the responsibility? Are we included in the accountability? Or are we included in the reward and punishment? Are we included in this whole narrative? Or are we just Gianni but bystanders or Watchers or helpers? So I came in answered the Prophet SAW Selim, we have all the Hadith I told you, I saw to some did not answer once.

00:11:02--> 00:11:09

The same idea like all four narrations that I gave you, not once do we have that the prophets of Allah Islam answered them. So he didn't say anything.

00:11:11--> 00:11:43

It's the Quran that answered, I answered with this with this with this. And I think I know this may sound but I think this i on its own is the fourth is the fourth chapter of the sutra. And then the I after that is the fifth meaning when we turn the page now it's gonna be a whole new it's gonna be a whole new chapter and this idea alone, just search for that one prickly issue that one uncomfortable topic. What about women in the deen not just in Islam but in every every other Abrahamic faith? I need to hear but are they are they viewed equally? Do they have equal 90 opportunities and responsibilities and rights and I need

00:11:45--> 00:11:48

outcomes or not. So we started with a number 35

00:11:49--> 00:11:56

urban there's pretty simple but at the same time it's very deep and beautiful to learn. We learn Hey Nina che on your body

00:12:01--> 00:12:04

Miss Smilla Rahmanir Rahim

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

in Muslim in a Muslim it will mean Mena.

00:12:20--> 00:12:20

So

00:12:22--> 00:12:53

ideally, every time I stopped, I would go back and read the last two. And that'll take us probably till failure to finish this on the read through. So I'm just going to do the one after but ideally just out of respect to the Quran, and the way it's supposed to be recited is that I would go back and say well, I mean, I would want me to have gone into you know, content, but I can only do four at a time I think in order for this not to turn into complete chaos and then just repeating that would take forever. So I'm just gonna keep continuing with the two after but I'm just telling you ideally, how their citation of Quran should be done. Should we should stop. So if you start you don't have to

00:12:53--> 00:13:02

just Yeah, but if you stop like the word minute, then when you continue you should repeat what we mean minutes. So you should read the last two because they're

00:13:03--> 00:13:14

they're grouped in terms of their meanings so that's how you're supposed to do it from A to G perspective. Well Bonnie, Tina will pawn it to you will for the painter was for the board

00:13:20--> 00:13:24

we'll saw DD now we'll saw b t will haul sharina

00:13:33--> 00:13:40

for DP now for the party was for me, you know well, so.

00:13:50--> 00:13:54

We'll have a winner Fujairah whom we'll have about

00:13:59--> 00:14:04

that Kadena law heck I feel that he a lot

00:14:09--> 00:14:12

I know a lot hula Melville

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

at yellow now Lima

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

so as you can see, there's a rhythm to it. And the reason there's a rhythm to it is because it's talking about the masculine plural and the feminine plural and the masculine plural and feminine plural. So what categories does the DIS tackle everything in the deen every obligation that you have? Within this Deen following following falling under any category of the faith itself is being recorded in this area, just so that you understand that we are literally equal in our obligations and responsibilities within the faith. There is not one part of this Deen that we don't share the equal responsibility as as

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

As Muslims and

00:15:02--> 00:15:04

and what needs to be recorded or spoken of here

00:15:06--> 00:15:40

is that the reason that there are different rulings for men and women in the Quran doesn't fall under the the reason for it is not because we have different different levels of responsibility and accountability and reward and punishment, not at all, is because we play different roles on the team that we're serving, basically, you know, I imagine this as a team, of course, what you're looking for in a defender, or a defensive player is different than what you're looking for an offensive player and whatever sport whatever sport you want to talk about, I can't talk about basketball, I don't understand. But in soccer, to be very clear, you're looking we only within the offensive

00:15:40--> 00:15:41

players to be quick

00:15:42--> 00:16:07

to have a really good aim, you have to be accurate in the defensive play, you need them to be a bit more to the ground, they have to be more stable, they have to be able to, to kind of foresee certain movement is different rules that you cannot say that they don't carry an equal responsibility. If you say that if you came and said, there is Jani, there's bias against defensive players. What are you talking about? It's just different? Well, because you guys don't talk about any how they should talk score goals.

00:16:08--> 00:16:42

If I were to hold a defensive player to that criteria, no one none of them would amount up to anything. That's not That's not fair. Anyway, that's not fair. Because that's not their role, doesn't mean that they don't care, you're an equal responsibility in this big in this big message. And in serving the team and and making sure that the team is going to be victorious, but they just played they play different roles. For us as Muslims, men and women, we carry equal responsibility in the faith, we just have different roles to play. It's not the same. Now, you may not like your role, either. Like many women don't like the role that they're given. And many men don't like the role

00:16:42--> 00:17:27

that they're given. I don't think it's sexism to Yanni for us to establish that we play different roles. Biology gave us different roles. You're never gonna be a mother, and she's never gonna be a father. It's just how things run. We have different roles to play. And I think faith Jani and forth reinforcing that or explaining that or, or putting that into applying it from a religious and ruling ruling perspective, isn't isn't anything but but totally normal and unnatural. Now are is are there instances where we're faith and Quranic verses and certain Islamic priests understandings are used to oppress women? Yes, of course, it is used very often. That doesn't make me this assignment and

00:17:27--> 00:18:02

doesn't mean it's okay. And, and we shouldn't be sitting around waiting for a non Muslim to come and tell us that we should take care of this issue more rather from within the Muslim society and within the Muslim communities, and within the Muslim realms of knowledge. This is something that shouldn't be spoken of much more. Because if you understand the Quran, and he could understand this, I just I alone, then things are made much clearer for you. There's no difference. This is basically saying, I'll explain in a minute, but I think I think you guys understand the idea of it. It's pretty clear, like even if you don't know much Arabic is still pretty simple. The idea is, if there was a

00:18:02--> 00:18:38

difference between the Muslim in and the Muslim match, then this is where it would be established. This is where they would come out. Yes. But however, because there are I have to talk about this alliance, they will call me and I'll tell you, what will your body when will he do that? He said, they are not the same. Those who sit back and don't do jihad, without any excuse. They're sick or ill or poor uncapable and those who actually do it fumble Allah Who and Mujahideen, IBM early one for Santa Monica Idina theologia, those who go in and sacrifice their time and lives and money and effort will be higher than those who don't, and those who choose to sit back and do something else,

00:18:38--> 00:18:49

but couldn't know what Allah would have said all of them will be properly rewarded by Allah subhanaw taala well thought that Allahu Mujahideen Adoke Idina jellen Aldine. However, most of our data has preferred those who do jihad over those who don't

00:18:50--> 00:19:02

all forms of jihad, whether it's Yanni personal, whether it's educational, whether whether it's even combat related, if necessary. So there is in the Quran, where Allah subhanaw taala makes immediately any comparison.

00:19:03--> 00:19:05

And he does that for the same thing.

00:19:06--> 00:19:40

When it talks about those who build who build the Masjid Al haram, or gelatin supplier, tanhaji yml, autonomous steel Harami come in and Abdullah he wanted me to join if he said, we are going to treat those who build the who take care of the of the curtains of the Kaaba and feed the judge as those who believe in Allah and believe in the day of judgment. And do you have the same you don't have the same light as to when and why they're not the same? When the Quran has precedents where it talks about groups that aren't equal? That makes sense. So we have we have examples in the Quran, where he's talking about two things, two groups of people and they're not the same. And then this icon it

00:19:40--> 00:20:00

says in indeed almost 21 Muslim match and this is referring to the acceptance of faith. The first one is just the basic the basic idea of walking into the door of opening the door and entering into the fate now inside Muslims and Muslim male Muslims or female Muslims. In English there's really no difference because there's no masculine or feminine plural in Arabic.

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

If there is a feminine plural is different than a masculine plural. Then after that well meaning a minute. This is talking about the theology regarding the actual set of beliefs you don't have a different belief set than women do we share the same beliefs. Well Bonnie Tina will call Anita and this is talking about obedience and following the way of Allah notice ba

00:20:19--> 00:20:22

it is it is bar that is not forced.

00:20:24--> 00:20:59

So pollute is for you. We do it in we call pollute dry, whenever you do draw it in. After a pretty caught you thought you call it pollute. And it's taken from the fact that your, your stat you're demonstrating your obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. But the meaning of glue just for you to to obey Allah, you're not being forced to do it, you're doing it on your own terms. We'll call it we'll call it Tina, we'll call it that. So after we talked about entering the deen were the same theology, theologically were the same following the ruling of Allah Subhan to obeying Allah subhanaw taala the same. Or maybe it's not maybe at the end of the day, he's gonna say, males are gonna get twice as

00:20:59--> 00:21:20

much as females or, or maybe he'll just, they'll take one of these Jonnie plurals, he'll just call up the males. He won't call out the females, or just maybe call it the females. Because I know that we think that one of them is just for females, we'll come to that in a minute. We take one of these are just just totally female, you have nothing to do with it. It's totally equal. We'll come to that in a second was Saudi clean our Saudi oil in terms of our ethics?

00:21:22--> 00:21:50

Those who are honest or truthful, that comes to our basic ethics were the same. Well, five at number five, when it comes to the way that we live our lives, meaning the values we have to carry with our life, perseverance, those who show perseverance, whether male or female, Siberian will crush you at no cost. Yet, when it comes to our relationship with Allah subhanho wa taala, the personal one inside Do we have a different soul than women do? By the way, when the Quran was revealed, Europe was still debating whether women had souls or not.

00:21:52--> 00:22:01

Look it up, if you don't believe me, there was still debating whether a woman actually had a soul inside. It was one of the theories that existed that she had the soul of a devil inside, not a human being.

00:22:02--> 00:22:41

Just so that's Yanni on the record, the same people who play the card of feminism in our faces every, and I don't blame them, because we're not doing our job. We don't even extend our own book, maybe read it well enough to know what is it that Allah says what it is that Allah subhanaw taala wants from us, or expects of us, or is looking forward for us to do when the way we're supposed to behave and practice. So I don't understand. But when you look at it, look at historically, this, this idea, was like centuries ahead of what the world was talking about centuries ahead of the world that was surrounding them. The same accounts, every aspect of the faith going. So the inner aspect

00:22:41--> 00:23:15

of the, the Allah from Allah, your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala, your spirituality plus, you know, and plus you will be in your financial worship to Allah subhanaw taala talking about the money, where we think sometimes that women don't qualify, or they don't have no element. So dipinto who give charity men and women the same, they're both required to do the same thing. So the money is not in the hands of the man only, nor is in the hands of the women only, it's for both. And they're equally required to do sadaqa because you may think, well, she has no she just sits there and waits for you to use your money. It's not her money, and she gets to just ask politely to use it if she

00:23:15--> 00:23:39

wants to. And if she does, she can't give sadaqa without your permission and all these cultural, Middle Eastern cultural understandings of what marriage is supposed to look like and the relationship between the man and woman when we're just cleaner when we got he could have dropped that by the way. There could have been dropped here. The importance of knowing all these little choices that Allah Subhan did I mean, well for me, and I will say and when it comes to physical when it comes to worship, that is physically difficult.

00:23:41--> 00:23:48

What's the most physical worship that we have fasting? everyone dreads fasting you may we love Ramadan but deep inside

00:23:51--> 00:24:17

how far away is it? is how long is the day you go you go Google to see how long oh it's 15 hours though, right? It's less than last year six years 17 Deep inside we fear what is a 30 day it's physically the difficult Warsaw Nina are slightly meant the same even though they get a few days off Yanni but in terms of responsibility is the same most saw me and also he met because you may say to yourself well physically we're stronger so they may not have to do they have to

00:24:19--> 00:24:27

you can say well they don't have to carry the obligation of physically draining acts of worship note was saw me you know saying that this the symbolism that

00:24:28--> 00:24:46

what have you Lina photo Jehovah, what have you learned and those who maintain their chastity in so many words? What have you Lena for those who who maintain their chastity the issue the ethics of, of chastity or abstinence? Right. Well, Hafi a lot. So we think this is usually the woman's thing.

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

Shebaa maybe him some of you Eboshi that's the that's a stupid Middle Eastern cultural thing that we say all the time. shut them up. Be evil. She doesn't matter that boy there's nothing there's nothing to shame the boy you can do whatever. Well

00:25:00--> 00:25:33

Like, what about what have you been up through your home? What have you, but what about that? Suddenly, you know, more than God? Is that how we were gonna play this would have been? If not what have you it could have dropped with, I believe. So we'd learned that it's more specific to women. And I could tell this, and I don't see, it's mostly I can't, I can't say it's more important to him and I can do it. But Javi, Lena Rojo Madhavi lot both, both of them will maintain their chastity. Equally, do they have similar same role and how they're going to do it? No, there's a difference of how the role is going to be played here. But they're both responsible for maintaining that role for

00:25:33--> 00:26:04

playing for for making sure that they maintain their chastity that they protect it, they protect their their private parts. And they mean that in a way of chastity, dahlias, saying, we don't cover all our bodies, they cover everything, but the hands the face has a different role, to different role and such there'll be different as your regarding what she was trying to tell you. When you when she asked to cover more than you have to cover. That means she's getting more audio than you on that on that field. But then on the other hand, you get to do other things that you can watch other than her too. So it's balanced out. She does more things that she has to do for me, but doesn't mean that

00:26:04--> 00:26:08

we don't have to we're not held responsible. You're not allowed to walk around.

00:26:09--> 00:26:32

Naked. You're not You're not allowed to go and pursue haram and they say you owe a man and God to say to your father, well, maybe him I'm not shaped by my ability, you know, my gesture has to has to be like, totally, she has to be wearing a black bag and walk around hanging out and she's not allowed to. Why Why is it okay for you enough for? Why is it okay for your son enough for your daughter? Why? Who taught you these double standards? Where do you get them from?

00:26:33--> 00:27:07

Actually, one of the reasons that the Muslim diny You Muslim women are leaving are less and less or less and less to holding on to this dish chastity because we're not emphasizing in amongst amongst our men to when they feel that they're not being treated fairly. Of course, they're gonna, of course, they're going to rebel against that, of course, when they feel like what what her brother does doesn't matter. But if she makes like the smallest, then she's going to be held accountable and the world is going to come falling down and crashing over it. That's not that Islamic. It's cultural, that's for sure. But is it Islamic? Well, have you Lena food? Yeah. What have you thought

00:27:07--> 00:27:41

the same with that getting Allah cathedra and with bacula and the to some some to summarize everything at the at the end, which is in those who remember Allah subhanaw taala a lot. And you can you can only see that as someone saying don't do the spear. But that can you know, I mean, those who continuously remember Allah in their decisions, this is more of a decision making. Concept. See, every time you make a decision, the question that is that you're asked, Do you remember Allah? subhanaw? taala? A lot? Or do many of your decisions go without you remembering Allah? subhanaw taala before them? And do you remember after after you've made the mistake, or after you've already

00:27:41--> 00:28:11

done it? And you're like, oh, I should have because it was Halloween. And in the questions we get, of course, after someone's already done something, it was that halal for why why'd you ask me for you to do it? Now you've done it not now, this is a mess that I don't even if I did, what do I tell you? And I don't know what to tell you right now. You're already you know, 10 meters deep into this? How do you gonna get yourself out with that getting Allah cathedra and it's a way of, do you remember if you recall Allah subhanaw taala always, every time you make a decision before you make it, you stop? Does this?

00:28:12--> 00:28:18

Is this Jani aligned with Allah subhanaw taala this plan for Muslims? Or is it not and that Kadena look at

00:28:20--> 00:28:59

every aspect of the faith, right? The general aspects of the faith, the theological ones, the practical ones, when it comes to ethics when it comes to values and when it comes to acts of worship that are whether whether they're spiritual or they're financial, or they're physically straining all of them, all of them, what at the end is the love who to whom Allah subhanaw taala has prepared for them with no difference, with no preference of one group over the other, with no discrepancy of differentiation between these two groups of people on the love who love him, Allah Subhan Allah has prepared for them altogether, not two things number 10, which is making sure that what you distance

00:28:59--> 00:29:14

that you did were taken away that's for the sin sinful part because we all make mistakes. So that's going to be forgiven while you're on a limb and then then great reward or massive reward or enormous reward. Not to say well, because you may say, well, well, maybe women's sins aren't

00:29:15--> 00:29:52

the same thing we all sin and both will be forgiven their sins will be forgiven and their idea will be given to them. This is the idea that every time someone what about when you're in there Mr. Nina well Muslim to me, this was the this is the this what you base everything on. Everything in the Quran comes back to this because this is a 191 is show. It's a chapter in a sutra. It's a chapter and also it just serves that purpose to make sure okay, maybe you misunderstand things. Maybe you read that. Even when you haven't done a study how not block your own a set, you know, if you want now when I look at Oh masculine plurals, yeah, but in the Muslim Muslim area that's already been

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

established doesn't have to say it every time. It doesn't have to write an essay in the Quran and use the masculine and feminine plural

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

Now you write something in English is the nightmare it's a nightmare it's right in English if you're speaking to the education leader you have to say his slasher him slash hers I know nothing Why because or I just do it in the portal turn it into the hate and then because it is even though

00:30:17--> 00:30:26

we may speak into the with the masculine plural but you just always refer back to this idea please in Muslim you know well Muslim we need your natural finding Tina will call you to do all this

00:30:27--> 00:30:38

so don't don't be offended by the word is just is that's that's what it is just how the language works. It there's no point of going back and forth this has already been established for you. Now I feel like

00:30:43--> 00:30:50

well, he didn't bring the masculine probe alone. Right so the masculine probe wasn't put here alone. Now the reason

00:30:52--> 00:31:32

the concept of Lean isn't here either so there's things there's things the dropped in the any day of course in terms of actions acts of worship. Now the reason that sometimes things because the jihad is not really an action jihad is a is a way of Islamic life. Like the word jihad is one of the most important words we have in the Dean altogether, it's been reduced to a very, it's been reduced to a meaning very specific is turned into meaning we interchangeably now use it with the word kitten, which is a big, which is a big problem. It's a big crime, to be honest, because in the Quran, there's pizza coochie Valley como Peterloo or coco Lacan, we prescribe for you fighting and it's

00:31:32--> 00:32:04

something that you do not like, anybody, no one likes fighting, but sometimes you have to do it. So the word jihad is not really this doesn't mean to fight. It needs to strive. That's, that's, that's the translation, that you strive against obstacles in life. And that's how you're supposed to go through life. They're striving and you had his way you strive to for the sake of Allah against everything in your way. One of the things that you strive against Allah subhanaw taala is sometimes combat mean you have to you have to overcome the fear of dying and the fear of of Yaniv fighting an enemy. So it's not here because it's more of a way of life than it is an aspect of worship or an

00:32:04--> 00:32:34

aspect of, of Islam. So it's not a category in the deen. It's a way as well a little bit to see now we had a lot more as you heard me the highest point of, of this deen is genuine. Because the way it's a way, if you understand you had to live by it, then you're you're being the best Muslim you can be. Because you're striving, you're always striving as the difficulties, the difficulties that you find within your meaning between your shoulders within your own self, you're striving against difficulties that you find in your daily life, and you're striving against the neffs and the chiffon and the horror, and the honey and corruption and you're struggling against everything. And every

00:32:34--> 00:33:01

time there's something to strive against you strike, you're fine. You're good. You're used to obstacles you enjoy jumping over the moon, you enjoy striving, I guess it was just your way of life. So it wouldn't it wouldn't actually being here would be very weird. Right? It wouldn't make any sense for it to be because here, at least I add are talking about the categories of the dean, entrance, theological, practical, it's categorized compartmentalizing things, if you'd say jihad is kind of outside of the way is kind of talking about because all he would have to say just take everything else in him.

00:33:02--> 00:33:05

Because that would summarize everything within the faith. But obviously there are different rules.

00:33:07--> 00:33:16

Obviously, when it comes to combat and fighting, there are different roles that women can play in how you know, the funny thing, not once the prophets I seldom go out on a battle without women.

00:33:17--> 00:33:30

It is not talked about in this era, not once. Every time there was a battle, there were women involved, actually, in the time ahead. The only time that they were or the very few women ended up ahead, the profit of satellite systems original

00:33:31--> 00:34:07

plan because he didn't want to leave if you know the story and he didn't want to leave Medina, you want to stay in Medina and defend the city. You didn't want to go and fight outside. But the youth said no, let's go and meet them outside. And he was asked why don't you want to go outside give us a call. He then you ain't gonna sell me. Schofield boots, then women would help us in the battle from from the rooftops. Meaning the women would be stationed his plan was he loved women on the roofs with rocks and they would help the people fight. This is how we viewed things that lesson and women would participate another day, but I had one of the ladies who got one of the people who defended

00:34:07--> 00:34:42

him when he only had maybe maybe a handful of people surrounding him towards the end was Obama or the lady who asked the question for one of the ladies who asked these questions will see them in calm. She stood there and she was hit so hard with the sword that there was a hole in her shoulder you could fit your fist in like it took it took years to heal and to close up and she never actually was able to loot to use her left arm properly or fully in a functionally ever ever again. So so when you look at these things in the dean, he's not very difficult for you to see the pattern. But yes, there are different roles. And there are because of those different roles, different rulings.

00:34:42--> 00:34:45

There's nothing to be ashamed of that. Now I don't I'm not

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

I don't enjoy either extremes of how Muslims deal with these things. I don't enjoy those who try and draw Islam as no no, there are no differences at all is in the end and they go and they're lying about what they're saying and the

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

But changing the way the Dean sounds into changing rulings and they're literally Jonnie misquoting the Quran, sometimes in a hadith, or those who go actually bring their their masculine culture into the deen, those who are brought up in certain parts of the when they bring masculine culture and defendant, both extremes are not only harmful, harmful for the development of Muslim communities and societies, but they're also wrong, which is the bigger point they're actually they're actually not true. And they're not proper. And this is not how the Dean talks about things. And anytime you feel doubt about this, just share this idea with someone. She does want Allah subhanaw taala says, Don't

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

be offended by the fact that too many of these I use the masculine pronouns when it talks about things or quote, Muslim men or or Muslim criminals, even though they're just always go back to this idea in the Muslim ages. They're the same. They're equal, there's no difference. Okay, all of these are waiting for

00:35:55--> 00:36:00

you, but not in the dunya. This difference? Is the dunya. With

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

the rewards,

00:36:05--> 00:36:07

rewards in dunya. What you mean by was

00:36:09--> 00:36:10

this, there's no,

00:36:11--> 00:36:16

there's not any difference between those? And regardless. Okay.

00:36:18--> 00:36:21

I don't follow. So what would the difference be?

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

Like?

00:36:29--> 00:37:06

I'm not sure exactly. Yeah. The way that is saying is showing the different roles that a Muslim plays in his life, you will play a role of a theological one, you play a practical one, there's a way in terms of your acts of worship the different categories. And it just puts the issues of ethics and chastity and issues of Yani of financial obligations. And it's putting them in parallel men, women, men, women, men, women. So the parallels of the responsibilities in dunya are equalized. And then the parallels of reward and punishment in Africa are equalized. So that's the point of the AI to say that you guys have the same rules. And then first, you have the same outcome. And you'll

00:37:06--> 00:37:15

notice I'm in terms of forgiveness in terms of agile, which is what the is trying to tell us. And I said, it's very clear, the difference of roles is clear. It goes without saying if you have different abilities, and

00:37:17--> 00:37:43

it's not difficult to see the difference between two genders is staring you in the face, we know is there. So there are different rules. But that doesn't mean they're different responsibilities, or different outcomes did the same, we just play a role a bit differently. And I gave you the analogy of a team and how some players will be required to do so and be better at something than something else, and requiring women to do jobs that are extremely physically straining, and asking men to do jobs that are

00:37:44--> 00:38:24

very much based on the ability to Yanni to express high levels of emotion, it would work, you can find it, they can do it. But why would you ask someone to do something that they're not optimally or ideally created to do? They can't do it. A woman can do all these jobs. But you're basically it's a waste of time and effort. And it's a waste of, of skills, you can get a man to do the opposite jobs, it works out. But the question is why? Why that doesn't make any sense. Why would you do it? If you have I know that sounds horrible. But it playing basketball or volleyball, if you have a guy who's two meters tall, and a guy who's a meter and a half like me, who is who is a better candidate to to

00:38:24--> 00:38:56

play this game. Now you can get them you don't have to learn to jump to two meters, but you're going to spend so much time and effort and money to get him to do that maybe haven't played a different sport. Maybe he'll be happier doing that, because we'll be less straining for him. The same thing goes. So meaning when you're when we have a predisposition for something, meaning you're just genetically, you're just biologically physiologically just better at doing something. Why would I try to human beings adapt? Amazingly, we can do almost anything you want. But why would you force us into a role that we're less predisposition to do properly? Which doesn't make any sense? And it's a

00:38:56--> 00:39:31

waste of a lot of time and effort? Yeah. Going back to this question. Yeah, I think what you were promised something that I should have been nothing done yet for both men and women. And was it looked on purpose? Or is there? Or is it that the reward is only for doing all of these actions? So what rewarding dunya? Would you be for you thinking of German question, and it could be my son, they want to battle they get praised? Whatever it is, they get money? Well, there's really no no reward. There's really no guarantee of reward and dunya for anyone, young at any point, right? Like there's no guarantee for you to be rewarded for anything you're doing dunya at all. There's no guarantee of

00:39:31--> 00:39:34

things working out for you and dunya at any point so that's the

00:39:35--> 00:39:59

only guarantee you have as as an individual Muslim if you if you do it right is for them. No here No, hey, I don't bug you, but we will offer him to live a life a good life. And it was good mean life that has meaning to it that is fulfilled when they feel that they're doing something that is worthy, but there's no there's no promise of living a long life or winning all the battles or being any wealthy.

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

You're healthy or living long, that doesn't exist in the quad for anyone, for men or for women, Yanni, if I if I follow you correctly, I mean the answer. But the only thing that your Prime Minister's inocula, you just do your job to the best of your ability and Dunia. And it depends on what curve of history you're sitting on. So if you're on, you're on the right curve of history, then yeah, you get to enjoy a lot of it a lot of perks for doing these things. And even the wrong curb of history, as you know many of us are today, then you're going to work and work and work and work and almost see nothing within your lifetime to kind of make you feel good about what you did. Because

00:40:31--> 00:40:45

it's just where we are. We're just like that, hopefully, we're at the lowest points we can show there's nothing under this URL, this is the last and then from this again, on it goes up. But yeah, you may not see the fruits of your effort within dunya. And you could easily be and just look at history.

00:40:48--> 00:40:49

Because of the misconception.

00:40:53--> 00:40:55

Yeah, well, this is the whole point of this.

00:40:57--> 00:40:58

They are equal?

00:40:59--> 00:41:01

Because they have nothing to do. No.

00:41:02--> 00:41:46

No, if there were only equal and after, then you would just say the first two words. They just have Indian Muslim and Muslim it Dillo don't know, it'd be that'd be the end of the discussion. But what why did he count? How many pairs are there here? One? So 1-234-567-8910 So 10 pairs, right? So why do you count 10 pairs? What was the point you could have said in the Muslim you know, when Muslim it right dilla hula home mohila 1011 Albina. And that would have served the purpose that you're suggesting and the way that the idea would run. But the reason but the fact that he counted 10 pairs of behaviors is the is the is drawing the focus to issues of dunya is drawing to focus to the roles

00:41:46--> 00:42:21

that we play as Muslims within this life, or else he would just said the first two words and then the focus would be completely on. But the fact that he put 10 pairs in parallel never dropping any of the plurals never dropping a male plural or a female Pearl is to keep the the equality going as far as the roles that we play, or else you just be the first two sets and then you first set and that would be enough and then mostly male and Muslim and those Muslims, male and female, Abdullah who to whom and then we would know that enough, you're gonna get the same thing. But the fact that he chose 10 pairs that focus on different things they're not the same thing it's not it's not

00:42:21--> 00:42:36

redundant meaning there's no two periods are exactly the same and meaning is actually very different. It's a bring forward the roles that we play in this dunya as Muslims would love to allow them and that's what I think the the meaning Okay, so we'll go on to the i After that, I'll read it and then I'll talk about the context that brought it forward because it's

00:42:37--> 00:43:11

this this here is probably the most maybe not the most, but it's a very difficult one. This for the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you're gonna find the word hello coming here a number of times. Hello Jason. As in depth personal difficulty, meaning something that you just can't you don't want to talk about we don't want you know when there's stuff like that you just don't want you're embarrassed or you're ashamed or you're just uncomfortable for this to be brought up at any point are you put in that situation and then you'll find that the usage of this word repeated in these are yet to come because this is one of the most uncomfortable situations the prophets of Allah examiners are put in

00:43:12--> 00:43:31

like what you just talked about his Yeah, that was that was something that he got upset with. No, this is uncomfortable is where it says uncomfortable with something and the client comes and talks about it. And I he says no kind of Rasulullah he can team and che and mill Quran Allah Katha Maha. If the Prophet was like that was ever to withhold a part of the Quran not tell the people about it will be these

00:43:32--> 00:43:50

if he were ever to hold something back, he would hold back 3637 and 38 but he didn't sell so let me recite the Quran because of how uncomfortable the whole topic was. And because what they actually say within them in this I think this is and this will be a very interesting story to read and learn about so we started from a number 36 inshallah.

00:43:51--> 00:43:59

Womack and Halima meaning one minute in either como Allah who I was who I am

00:44:09--> 00:44:18

either for De La Huella su M one a guna who will hear to mean Emery in

00:44:26--> 00:44:40

so we're here to hear what he wants a very specific way. Let me see what was left who fell Cadell ball Bala Bina.

00:44:48--> 00:44:54

Now this to complement the idea before and to start something new is the fifth chapter of the sutra talking about an incident that

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

it's important for us to learn about not talked about very often. It's very important for us to learn about you

00:45:00--> 00:45:33

case by single American and he moved me in. It has never been okay. And it's never been acceptable America is something that is completely not permissible for a movement or Amina to compliment the eye before me we're talking about a movement want to bring continue the idea that we're talking about both here men and women. Specifically I need to continue that mentality as we go along. Either called Allahu wa rasuluh Omron if Allah subhanaw taala is Prophet, give a command of Allah Who am run me that Allah subhanaw taala has given a command given a ruling or pushed forward

00:45:34--> 00:45:57

a predestined or a distant issue without God Allah who are a suitable candidate Kinnaman Kumar Illa Allah Allah Nene the issues of Allah subhanaw taala predestines. So if we put something as a command or an obligation or a ruling, they'll call the Allahu Allah suitable and run the normal men, no believer, male or female, would have the right or would it be permissible for them, and yakun Allah whom will appeal to emulate him, for them to have choice within their meta,

00:45:59--> 00:46:05

meaning if you are a movement, if you're a believer, male or female, if Allah subhanho wa Taala and His Prophet,

00:46:06--> 00:46:39

put forward a command or put forward to a ruling, then you don't have the option of choosing who here is a very specific derivative in the Arabic language, there's not there's only maybe another one that's like the only two words that actually have that way of deriving, and it comes from the word KR Hayato means choice it will hear about doing it is repeated in the Quran a few other times, because it's there again, so they don't have an MDM, they don't have the ability to make choices within their matter. Once Allah subhanaw taala decrees a

00:46:40--> 00:46:50

an issue or gives a command he gives a command if your movement you don't choose. There's no, it's interesting because this comes up a lot. In modern context, I get this question almost all the time.

00:46:52--> 00:47:01

I get it from from a lot of sisters of sisters more than I get it from from men. They do get it from them and other things. So I get it from sisters in the form of this is is

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

is hijab an option?

00:47:05--> 00:47:20

Right? So that's the question I get, and that's how it's worded. Is hijab an option? I never know how to answer that question like, What do you mean by his hijab and option, everything's an option. Being Muslim is an option being non Muslim is another option. You chose to be Muslim, that's the option you chose.

00:47:21--> 00:47:29

If you chose that option, then you should choose every other option that aligns with interests, your choice is going to be invalid. So what you mean by option

00:47:30--> 00:47:42

you mean optional within the dean, or in optional in general. So there's a there's a very big misunderstanding of using and I get it from guys as well, when it comes to stuff that are a bit more

00:47:44--> 00:48:18

different issues within marriage and is an option is not an option. It's what you mean by option. So this is kind of talks about that if you are a movement or a movement. If you have said La ilaha illallah, Muhammad Rasool Allah, He ventured the deen now you're a believer, you're a part of this faith, that no, you don't have an option when Allah subhanaw taala gives a command whether to follow it or not. Now, does that mean that if you're not a Muslim, you have the choice. What it means is that if you've made that choice, because at the end of the day, you have freedom of choice, Allah subhanaw did not force you to do anything. He has told you, however, that if you don't follow his

00:48:18--> 00:48:24

ruling, subhanaw taala, you will be punished and if you do, then you're going to be rewarded. He gave you that much. You're not forced to do anything.

00:48:25--> 00:48:53

But if you're a true believer, when Allah subhanaw taala decrees a command or gives a command and gives an obligation, you don't have the choice to say I like it, or I don't like it, I'll follow it or I won't follow it. It's optional. I'll do it when I'm ready. Inshallah, once I have time, I have to I have to slowly and ease myself into all these all this terminology. That is basically just saying that I'm not going to do whatever it is that Allah subhanaw taala asked me to do. Right? I don't feel like it. I'm not ready to do it, or it's not my time.

00:48:55--> 00:48:59

And when I want me to, and by the way, we're both equal on that two

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

men and women are equal and that two are equal and the fact that we don't get to choose when Allah subhanaw taala gives us a command if we believe in Him. If you don't believe it, I mean, do whatever you want. Go live your life however you want. But if you've chosen to be a believer, and you're in that category of movement movement, then no

00:49:17--> 00:49:31

you don't get to choose Matt Kennedy movement. What I'm gonna tell you though God Allah Hua Su and when Allah gave a command, or you couldn't Lahoma Lila to Memberium but they go around and they can choose within that matter itself. And say I like this I don't like that. There is an issue within the deen that I find.

00:49:33--> 00:49:51

I think this is somehow this is the perfect tool for this to come in because it's talking about obeying and submitting to Allah in difficult situations. And this is sums up the sewer. This is to me. Number 36 is the is the major if the Surah or the punch line is the sauna. This is the way we talk to you is to talk about any

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

any major ideas and different so to me, this is the i in the middle of the surah that yeah, sometimes things are hard

00:50:00--> 00:50:24

Sometimes they're very uncomfortable. Sometimes you don't like them. You don't like this rule you don't like this obligation doesn't make a difference in the importance of you following the ruling itself, it doesn't change the fact that you're obligated to follow this ruling to its to its fullest extent. That doesn't change. We don't have to like everything, He tells us to do supine, which we still have to do it. You don't have to like it.

00:50:26--> 00:50:28

You don't have to love it, and you don't have to act like you do.

00:50:29--> 00:51:05

That's another expert. angle or aspect you should know, you don't have to act like you love every part of the dean. It's okay for you not to be comfortable with certain parts of the deen. It's okay for you to express that. It's okay for you to come and talk about that. It's a struggle with this. It doesn't make sense to me. I'm not clear on it. It's not okay. However, for you to dismiss it and not follow it. There are two different things that are very, very, very different. There's totally separate for you to know we have done the opposite in our communities. We have people not following the deen just don't speak in an ill manner about it. Right. Like just don't say anything bad about

00:51:05--> 00:51:15

it. But when our youth and we don't follow it all, Jana you can sit there Yanni drinking, but he can't speak about the fact he doesn't like how Islam says it's not okay to drink.

00:51:17--> 00:51:48

Slaughtering anybody it is the same, right? And it's not the idea. So we have this in our families where they're doing the Haram but they can't speak about it in the deen. Why? Had them speak about it, but follow it this way better. I mean, you don't have to enjoy everything in Islam. It's not designed like that. Now, if you come to a high level of faith and belief in Allah Subhan closeness you will. When you acetylcholine Lucilla it will become it'll become the ultimate ease and you'll be eased into it and your life will change. But at the beginning of it Yeah, it's hard.

00:51:49--> 00:52:27

Like, you know, because Ali used to say in his tablet here, he used to talk about his experience as a youth, or someone who accepts he started becoming a dedicated Muslim maybe later in his life and others said like I used to find very difficult. And he said that was I was told my magical. That's one of the any. I don't know how to Iman, one of the markers of your Eman if you find faith difficult prayer difficult at the beginning. If you struggle with it, if you find it hard, good. That shows that your iman that you have some Iman here that means why because your stripe if it wasn't difficult, I would think something's wrong. You can't you kind of arrive at that level of

00:52:28--> 00:53:03

closeness and clear clarity with Allah subhanaw taala, where prayer becomes something that you look forward to from the beginning. No, it's going to take time, striving against shape line and striving as the neffs is one of the markers that you believe in Allah, you're walking down the right pathway here, you're doing it right, keep on keep on doing it, that's how you're gonna get there, Inshallah, you don't have to like it, you still have to do it. I think I think this is shouldn't be taught any more often. And spoke of more often. If you say that, you know, Allah laid us on your corner a little here. You can't walk around saying I have the choice to do this. And I had the choice to do

00:53:03--> 00:53:40

that. And if I want to do this, I'll do it when I'm written. He said this, you do it. Now we can we can Sharla come up with with with the rationale and the justification and the understanding. And later on, we can we can work on that we can work towards it. But imagine if you needed a clear explanation. Every single time he gave, he gave a real ruling. Now I've been with people like that. They're exhausting and tiring, and they get nowhere. If you need a detailed explanation for everything he tells you to do, you'll never know it'll never end. It's I'm not saying that we do. The beautiful thing about Islam, it never told you to do something illogical. You never actually do

00:53:40--> 00:54:11

something irrational. There's always a rationale behind it, that you may not agree with everything that's being said, but you still have to follow it is still a part of the deen. And this idea comes at the perfect point in the middle of the SUTA between the chapters and different aspects that are being taught spoken of. And it's right in the middle. And usually big students that have important themes, their punch line is right in the middle. So there's enough Jonnie build up enough commentary, there's enough examples. And this students have that type of sword that is that is divided into chapters mean each chapter talks about a different aspect means an angle they stood

00:54:12--> 00:54:29

different angles, each angle is bringing up a different idea. But this is the the middle layer that you can choose, even when you don't like it, even if you're not comfortable with it. Okay, I just want my Yasuda on us. And those who disobey Allah and His Prophet *a Mala. She doesn't talk about punishment. We're

00:54:30--> 00:55:00

not talking about punishment. It's talking about the walk that you the pathway you make know that God Allah Allah than they are totally misguided, while Adam will be in a clear misguidance meaning they have chosen a path of misguidance of uncover lack of clarity of deviance from the pathway of Allah subhanaw taala and a clear method, the moment they start saying, well, I'll take what I like and leave. What I don't like is that now I want you to do something. I want you to do that for yourself. I want you to go home today and think of

00:55:00--> 00:55:06

As the dean and think about things that maybe you've done that with certain aspects of the deen that you chose not to do.

00:55:07--> 00:55:10

For the, for the older people here, look at your marriage,

00:55:12--> 00:55:46

your kids and wonder, Have you accepted every aspect of the deen with Allah that Allah Subhan. Allah gave you the regarding your wife and regarding your kids? Or have you chosen what you like and then taking the cultural things that work for you and shove them into the deen so that you're happier in what you do. And then for everyone, it's the same thing. But what have you Have you accepted everything Allah subhanaw taala says the ones that you like, and the ones that you don't like it, it's easy to take what you like, it's easy for a father come and tell me the importance of it. But what he did as his kid sits there, well, maybe maybe you talk about new ideas regarding your care

00:55:46--> 00:56:17

parents. Let's see, let's see how good you are at that. Maybe, instead of telling me to tell your kid to do it, maybe you do it, maybe that's a better way for your kid to learn. Maybe instead of telling them you know, commanding them to get to do better, right, which seems so self serving anyway. Like it seems it's a very self serving thing. Maybe do it to your parents, maybe when they see that they'll be like that's how it should be. Maybe that's a better way of doing things instead of choosing what suits us and leaving out what doesn't so we're gonna read after it so I can start in short telling the story is between multiple nations at the time is is longer than is used after

00:56:17--> 00:56:31

Asia for the last 10 minutes starting next week and shomo I do this every year usually I didn't a different aspects. So I'll talk about something for the last 10 minutes, a bit different inshallah starting next week with the data, but this week, I forgot that actually we're going to do that until maybe like an hour before.

00:56:32--> 00:56:43

I didn't even know that today. The time was gonna change. So before we read, I'm not gonna read it today because it doesn't take a long time to read. I'm gonna give you the gist of the story itself regarding this, so

00:56:44--> 00:56:48

enjoy Helia so before the prophets of Allah Allah who is like the salam became a prophet.

00:56:50--> 00:56:55

He, when he got married to Khadija, Allah Hi Nadia, gifted him a

00:56:57--> 00:57:24

servant by the name of Xavier. Now Zaid is a as an Arab was a long lineage within the tribe of Bonita live that he was a part of live in northern part of Arabia in one day with his mother, with his family, he was out visiting Jani family relatives, and they were raided by a different tribe. And he was taking taken as a kid around six, seven years old.

00:57:25--> 00:58:02

And the people who did this went and sold him and the the, the slave markets, and he was sold from one person to the other until he made his way to a man called Hakeem in his even tweeted, right so Hakeem it has been coined and who is Hadid? You know, the line has nephew, who later on become Muslim, but many, many years later, he's late Muslim. So Hakeem when Hadiya Allah and I got married to the Prophet Sunday. So then he wanted to give her a gift. So we gifted her this servant. And then when Khadija Yanni got her, she gifted him to the prophets of Allah Azza them so Zaid now was served with a servant to the prophets. I said when he was eight years old at the time.

00:58:03--> 00:58:06

Those eight would live his life with the prophets I sell them.

00:58:08--> 00:58:13

On paper, he was the servant of the prophets, I said, but when it came to actual life, his aid

00:58:15--> 00:58:30

was was one of the happiest kids probably alive at the time. And I've always been because it's important part of the first begin at the beginning of this. We call it the Anam Allahu Allah Who and I'm telling you see, I'm pretty sure if you were to ask XID before he,

00:58:31--> 00:59:02

before he became a Muslim before the Prophet he met the Prophet so I said, What was the worst day of your life? I'm pretty sure hands down it would be the day I was abducted for my family and no one would blame him for that. That's that is the truth. But then maybe a few years into into the Prophet, some lessons prophecy or let's go farther into Medina. And you'd ask David, what was the worst day of your life? He would maybe call something else but he asked him what the best day of your life was the day that I I met rasool Allah. I think so Saddam. And the reason that I met him was because I was abducted had I not been abducted, I've never met him at least Subhanallah how

00:59:02--> 00:59:39

sometimes the worst, the worst challenge the worst experience of your life can if we just waited out long enough, if you just if you're just patient and perseverance can turn into the biggest blessing of your life and proceed. That is the probably one of the biggest examples we have in this era, where he and why why do I say that? Because later on a number of years into this before the prophets I'm listening even became a prophet. His family finally found out where he where he was living. And he found out that he was owned by a man called Hamad bin Abdullah Abdul Muttalib, one of the grandchildren of Abu Musab the man who stood in front of Oprah, and it was a known chief of Arab

00:59:39--> 00:59:49

Zona Andre, it was known to be very, very generous men and all his his descendants to be similar to him. So they came as a hadith in Kabul, as AIDS father in his

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

and his uncle came to Mecca and they searched out the profits of a license before it became a profit. And they said we would like county to to buy it and we brought a lot of

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

money and they were very respectful and very, they're basically begging the private, please don't say no, because he could easily say I don't want to use my slave, I want to sell him, no one can force them. And they're like, we'll give you all this money, we're gonna give you like 10 times as worth in terms of what you would actually get for him, but CALL US allies and even told them, how would I give you a better option? So he said, What could be better than us buying our son out, said I'll bring him here. And if he chooses to leave with you, then he leaves free. Of course, they don't want anything from you. But if you choose to stay with me, I won't force him to leave. Is that fair,

01:00:28--> 01:00:44

if I if I if he says he wants to stay, I will force him to go and live with you at the time. Zaid was much older, and he was 13 or 14 years old. At that time, of course, 1314 is not a kid anymore. I know you think it's a kid not a kid. My grandfather got mad he was 13 years old. So you know get yourself ready. It is a few years and

01:00:45--> 01:00:49

it was a different a different climate a different time and different

01:00:51--> 01:01:28

velocity of developments. So he was called and he saw his father of course his uncle and see them for years. It was a very tearful reunion. And then the Prophet says I'm still asks him you know these two because I'd be why me there's my father and my uncle because he wasn't gonna give them away to someone who was claiming to be forgotten if any of you okay as eight and 10 have a home. Oh Entercom a, I gave you the choice to leave with your father and or just stay with me. But God Allah He lucked out. Why Lika Haida I will lie so I would never choose anyone over you yellow so he didn't either. Reagan says no matter under the law. He didn't he didn't hesitate for a moment. He didn't

01:01:28--> 01:01:34

think you think it over may look at his dad and ask him he just I would not leave the hospital and of course his dad is Yanni loses his mind.

01:01:36--> 01:01:45

Booty you'd rather be a servant. And Abiko I'm Myka you know Mick, instead of going with your uncle and your father to your mother to live

01:01:47--> 01:02:22

at home in Highland Mara, to whom I hadn't got I've seen goodness from this man that I've never seen anywhere else. I would never leave him. But Alpha bhakti Hadith. You can't anymore rasool Allah Hadith I spent the next day speaking to the Prophet SAW, I said, this is all before his prophecy Ali Assad was to them is all before he became Rama. But like Hadees until harita felt totally for the herbicide and he looked happy. Like he's happy who he left him with and he would come back and visit. And on that day, the private size emblem is before it is now he takes the hand of zt and he goes and stands in front of the Kaaba, we'll pull a shadow Yeah, I'm not sure of Christ.

01:02:23--> 01:02:36

And, and there's even a Yom Smith who was a diviner Muhammad Sharif, who knew everything cool. I want you all to be witness that from now on his name is Zaytoven one month because at that point, if you remember going back to the beginning of the sooner that we were Magi Allah

01:02:37--> 01:03:03

was like the sort of gave gave an introduction for a couple of topics that were going to come later on. So you're ready to hear what he has been talking about that we never made. The adopted children you take care of to be your biological children. We never made them to be that and we never claimed that that was okay. Just to just to let you know, so he is yeah, he that was fine. So his name is Aiden. Muhammad. He's my son for I met now. From now on when I die, he inherits me and if he dies, I inherited him meaning we're one though.

01:03:04--> 01:03:14

And he loved him so much and that the prophets I said, I'm got him married. He and who do you get married to at the time, he got married to Xena been to Josh sad, I mean,

01:03:15--> 01:03:25

many auditions so he married her. He married him off to his to the Prophet, some of these alums cousin, his cousin from his Aunt Jemima McDonough.

01:03:26--> 01:03:59

She had she was married to a man called Josh I know the names but that's that they used to call names anyway, regardless. So she had he had number of children. None of them was Abdullah, who was a known figure in the Bible, avoid one of the Greek martyrs of the neighborhood and Xena. Now her name was Barbara at the time the Prophet saw them later on change your name to Xena, we're talking about that in a different session, Michelle, and he met and he married them together on a solar system and they stayed married until basically the time of the revelation of the Sunnah, which is the fifth or sixth year of his of his Asia rally, so to say I'm just a few years before he passed away for a very

01:03:59--> 01:03:59

long time.

01:04:01--> 01:04:13

Now, the problem with with their marriage was, was a few things. One of them. One of them was that when Islam came and taught called on, you will imagine

01:04:14--> 01:04:43

that your adopted kids aren't your own. They have to be called drew who remember that at the end of the suitor, call them by the names of their fathers. So now zeta was no one was even Muhammad who was even Hadith for Arabs that meant a lot. I know it sounds awkward, but that's how Arabs function zeyneb was meant to say the bin Mohammed and she was okay with that because Mohammed bin Abdullah bin will pull him that's a that's a very honorable lineage that she's happy to be, but now Zetas no longer Zaid ibn Muhammad. Now he's seen him in Hadith,

01:04:44--> 01:04:59

right? Remember, he talked with a whole different she's not happy anymore. She doesn't like that anymore. She's quiet about it. But she's that's a problem in her heart. She's not happy. That's one thing. Another thing Zaid was always never just never managed to make a lot of money in his life. He lived like his Jonnie Israel model the Prophet

01:05:00--> 01:05:35

Sometimes we lived with with with little provision. And Zane up came from a very, very rich family, a very rich family number two, number three, and saying that didn't have kids. She's off because she couldn't have kids. And they'd always want to have kids. And every time his aide would complain about it, just like any two couples important story in this era, I told you guys that this surah is going to contain stories that will make you uncomfortable listening to them, they will point out certain mistakes that the Sahaba made, I told you at the beginning, and that one of our problems in the deen is that we don't have to deal with that. They don't don't talk about the story. Because

01:05:35--> 01:06:04

we're making we may call it a flaw or one of the sahaba. But that's okay. There's still the Sahaba they're still the best people to live. And we learn from their mistakes own and they are not the Allahu Anhu model. Do I know they already made it to Jana? Yes. When I tried to make it mean, when we're talking about their mistakes, we're not bringing down their status. However, we're learning for ourselves to be better people, that's all. But they would talk to her sometimes as a man and as a married couple would. And he would bring up the fact that he's not happy that he can't have kids. And then zeyneb would feel any vulnerable. When he said that, and she would tell him that Yeah. And

01:06:04--> 01:06:38

he will you don't come from a family that's even we used to be a slave and you're not like he would say so. And this would cause them to be very, yeah, I need to fight quite often. And that kept on increasing, especially during Xavier. Xavier. Time back in the day, having children was a big deal. Having kids having those to carry your name. And that's I think one of the most important parts of us understanding the prophecy of Rasulullah. Salah is he didn't have male kids. He didn't have I did not leave him with male descendants the big deal from from an Arabic perspective and in the seventh century, that is one of the biggest problems you could have. Because the strength of a tribe the

01:06:38--> 01:07:10

strength of a group was based on the number of men who would carry swords. And yeah, he thought some only left four daughters. Right. He saw some which also brings like a something to think about in terms of his of his legacy. Alex Lipson, the Zaid, that was his problem with Xena and Xena had a problem with zayde A couple of things that made their marriage less stable, they weren't as happy. And what we know about Zedi behind them during his life is that he is someone who struggled with stability in his own marriage. But the other one I mean, he had problems in his marriage that he divorced a number of times or the Allahu Anhu in his life and he and he struggled he married Jani

01:07:10--> 01:07:17

OMO film and talk about being wise when the first module not and that will okay so when Charlotte with that and will continue

01:07:19--> 01:07:21

to we go I thought I thought we had five minutes
