Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam America said, you know, have you been a Muhammad Ali he was not happy he made no bad.

00:00:08--> 00:00:15

We recited I think I have 36 of them. And the story of Xena bin Zayed is one

00:00:16--> 00:00:57

that is very rarely spoken of in the, within the Islamic lessons and sermons. And it's one that's not very well understood by Muslims. And the reason is quite clear. It was something of a homage for the prophets of Allah, He said him himself and you'll see the wordings that are used in the free if they're going to read, it'll be very, very clear to you. This was something that caused the prophets of Allah Salam, actual psychological distress, he was not happy that this this was going to happen. He was not comfortable with it. He didn't hope that it was going to happen. He didn't wish it would happen. He secretly inside was hoping that it wouldn't turn out to be what it turned out to be

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

because of the backlash that happened from from the story. And I told you last time, the relationship the story of Zetas, the Allahu Anhu in terms of his his relationship with the prophets of Allah is and I'm being very, very close to him to the point where boubakeur Hello Can Zaid on Hyun Allah McDonough fantashow FIFA FIFA 20 side, if Zeno's alive then after the prophet, Elijah Lim died, there will be no disagreement on who was going to take the pill of after after him. Me would have been very clear who was going to be taking on after the prophets of Allah and then would have been Zaid, the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, because they knew that he was the

00:01:34--> 00:02:16

most beloved person to lead to the prophets of Allah. He said, Satan is the Allahu Anhu. But he had passed away and now they are the only one. Living with the prophets of Allah is Allah Most of his life and most of his childhood, learned a lot from him. But he had there was a part of Xavier, or the law on his life. That was, yeah, he had problems with marriages. He didn't he didn't have a lot of stable marriages, he he got married and divorced more that more often than other Sahaba did during their lives. And that's just a thing that people I know none of us are perfect. We don't claim that they are and we're not trying to play it like that. On the other hand, when you find out

00:02:16--> 00:02:51

that there's an imperfection in one of their characters, that's not a problem, but they're human beings just like we are and they had little imperfection in terms of their lives and his issues is he struggled with marriage stability, maybe it's because of the trauma that he that he saw during his childhood being abducted from his family and sold as a slave from one place to the other. Maybe that was one of the things that affected him under the law and in terms of Yanni, holding holding on to a stable marriage. But he married into helium just before the prophets Allah Allah Selim became a prophet. He married Zainab, Ben to Josh, the Allahu Ana Xena was the is the prophet of some of his

00:02:51--> 00:03:30

cousin from his aunt side. So she is the daughter of omega metabolismo Pauline. So zeyneb is the prophets of Allah and his cousin. And I saw him wanting to marry his adopted son to someone whom he was related to him. So he chose for him a very respectful lady from a high Janya wealthy and very known family, and Xena was okay with him. They were happy with that until things change with Islam said no more Tibetan, you know, more adoption. His name now is Aiden. And how do you know Xena was no longer married to Zaid ibn Mohammed? Right? That's not she's married to a guy called zeta and harissa. And she's not very happy about that. That's not what she was hoping for. She's, she's okay

00:03:30--> 00:03:40

with the date of Muhammad, but not with Jacob. And he was always a little thing, that kind of another thing is that she didn't have children she was she was a lady who couldn't have children. And that of course, had its weight

00:03:41--> 00:03:42

on the marriage.

00:03:44--> 00:04:05

And every time they disagreed, Zainab would would remind Zaid of his of his background, and how he was very poor, his aid was just financially he lived the same standard the Prophet sallallahu Sallam lived on insane upkeep came from a very wealthy family. So these issues kind of all came together. And every time something happened between them as all couples on Earth,

00:04:06--> 00:04:37

as they go through meaning what happens between a man and his wife row or woman and her husband, and they disagree, they remind each other of things. They it has that little thing. Well, you never brought me kids and zeyneb eyes. Well, you come from Yeah, and you're not actually Muhammad says on son, you're from a different family he was so they would use these things on each other and they wouldn't get on fight. And it happened so many times that they were feeling okay, we were not getting any better. This is not getting we're just this is not working out. We don't seem to be really getting along very much. And Zaid was thinking of divorcing Xena.

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

There are a lot there's a lot of issues here that we have to talk about or come back to the management to make sure that the story is going to continue as as you enter what happened what happened at the same time where Zaid was thinking of it. The Prophet SAW I said MCs he sees a dream. He sees in a dream sericata him and Harry are so they put them in house you laugh at them and Hadid which is make a silk piece of silk that is covering something

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

For someone tells him edify, photogenic, lift the silk sheets and you'll see your wife is dream. So he lives and he sees Xena and he wakes up. It's a dream. Now dreams are less conclusive and decisive for profits than then commands are, then you'd be coming and telling him something. So it's a dream to him.

00:05:22--> 00:05:26

He knew almost immediately that this probably means he's gonna end up marrying Xena.

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

You didn't like it? So I sent him was not happy with that.

00:05:31--> 00:06:05

It's very, it's very simple to say that I will. If you don't like me saying it, we will read it I will say and then you'll be okay with the fact that the product was and wasn't happy with you didn't like it. And he was hoping that this was a this wasn't a conclusive or decisive dream that this was maybe maybe had some different interpretation. Maybe the interpretation wasn't that he was going to marry her. He was hoping something different and then say a few days later comes over saying I don't want to my wife anymore. The problem was I said, No, no, no, you're saying I'm psychotic and hold on to your wife. But tequila, take take it easy find ways to work it out. But inside he knows 99 But it

00:06:05--> 00:06:37

is going to happen. And this is what Allah subhanaw taala wants for him. And he doesn't want this. He's not hoping for it. He's not happy with it. I just had no car kinda Rasulullah he says I'm Kara team and she and mill Quran Allah Katha Mahad healer yet, if the prophet says I'm gonna withhold anything of the Quran, you'd have withheld a lot from 30, from 37. To the 40, he would have held on held back the withheld those Ayat did not share them with the Muslims because it talks about something happening within the heart of the prophets otherwise, that Allah Subhan is pointing out you shouldn't have felt like that shouldn't have felt like that there's no halogen when I tell you

00:06:37--> 00:06:38

to do.

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

So that's what the that's the you feel

00:06:43--> 00:06:55

uncomfortable. That's also just one uncomfortable situation, to the other alignment commands that Allah subhanaw taala gave to people that made them uncomfortable that may put them outside of their

00:06:56--> 00:07:33

comfortable zone comfort zone, they weren't happy, they were scared it was either fear or their difficulties under stress. It was either it was Yanni but anxiety is something that makes you feel uncomfortable towards Allah subhanaw Does command the idea and the whole sutra is summed up in the kind of the middle area or the main idea this rule number 36 will not count any meaning what I'm looking at in your docket Allahu Allah suitable emmalin and you're gonna have to look at him. If Allah subhanaw taala makes a decree, and he gives it to the believer, a man or woman then they have no choice. They should not have an option. They list if he says something to do it. This is the

00:07:33--> 00:08:06

whole point. And it talks about all these uncomfortable situations that there's no it's hard to talk about, well, even when I'm talking to you about it, I can feel I feel the discomfort. And I guess the the discomfort in the faces of those who are listening to me, but that's what talks about. It talks about obedience of ALLAH SubhanA submitting to Allah subhanaw taala it specifically when it's hard to do it, specifically when you don't want to you just feel like, is there any way out of this one? Can we get out of this? Can you give me some photos or some way I don't have to do this. Sometimes there isn't sometimes is there isn't. And it is what it is. You don't have to be able to

00:08:06--> 00:08:37

make sense of every single detail. We try to we strive to as Muslims, we're supposed to try and make sense of every detail. He gives us a panel title. But let's say you don't, if the evidence is compelling in terms of this is the command that you hold on to it. You hold on to it, even if it's if it's uncomfortable, even if even if you don't like and that's an important part of accepting of how of accepting righteousness accepting the word of Allah subhanaw It is important part of it, of you accepting the parts of it that you like, and the parts of it that you don't like. And picking and choosing is not is not a part of the deen.

00:08:39--> 00:09:12

If he gave a command Subhana wa Tada. Then you don't look for the wisdom within the command hoping to find it. You know, there was wisdom. You know, there's wisdom there. If you didn't find it there that was that was just your, your our shortcoming. We didn't find the wisdom. That's our fault. But it's there. We just didn't see it. We don't see why didn't see any wisdom is I'm not doing it. No, that's not what are you what are you doing now, that was not talking about issues that are undecisive or inconclusive in the dean, I'm not talking about issues that can that are open for interpretation, because many things are open for interpretation. And this is an example he saw a

00:09:12--> 00:09:33

dream satellites and I didn't do anything until he was told directly. I do this. This strengthens my point. The Prophet SAW civilize him didn't actually do anything based on the dream. You waited until he was commanded by Allah subhanaw taala verbally and then he did it subhanho wa Taala even God told him he's allergic Allah Hussain of Allah subhanaw taala has made made zone is in a good way after she was divorced by by Xavier.

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

So when something's open for interpretive interpretation, and there's more than one opinion, you can take the opinion that is of ease, if it has evidence, that's fine, but when there isn't, when it's decisive, and it's conclusive, you don't have to like it. You don't have to be able to see the wisdom in order for you to follow it. Because you've already seen the wisdom and the belief in Allah subhanaw taala to begin with authority if you have already established that La Ilaha illa Allah you've accepted that you've accepted the prophecy of

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

Hamilton hola hottie also been sending me, you've also established that you've established the the I need the holiness of the Quran, you've already accepted that now, it's simple, you've established the feed everything that the Quran says you should be ok with. Now, if something is an including a non conclusive undecisive, that's fine, take whatever easy, it's actually the fact is any obligation to give you the easiest factor he can possibly give you that take the most difficult factor for himself if he wants to. But if it's decisive, meaning the level of certainty in terms of this ruling, both the authenticity of its narration and the meaning the interpretation of it is

00:10:34--> 00:11:11

authentic, and it's and there's no way of beating around the bush, there's no other way to understand it, then you stick to it, whether you are comfortable with it, how many times we are or whether it's like certain topics and it's not you just completely uncomfortable and just not nice, and we don't enjoy it. Now the ultimate story is what is the story the story that the suitor was named after Alexa, when they stood on the waiting for the Confederates all 10,000 of them to come annihilate Medina, that was a scariest time for all Muslims. And then they were betrayed. By the way the tribal bonobo made it made it even worse, probably the worst time for the Sahaba and, and the

00:11:11--> 00:11:42

prophets of lies within their city. And they sort of took this in three four pages and it broke it down into its elements and talked about how they were supposed to behave. But then it moved on to other things and moved on to the house of the Prophet so I said him and his wife not wanting to live with the financial status or the financial standard that he had given them right there to talk to women specifically in terms of their behavior and then talked about how women and men are equal in a Muslim you know, and Muslim and you all topics that we find today difficult to speak of. issues of equality and equanimity and, and different roles that are played by different by both genders. And

00:11:42--> 00:11:44

then this topic here

00:11:45--> 00:11:46

is a divorcing Zainab.

00:11:47--> 00:11:52

And the Prophet SAW said being told to marry, it was very hard for him. So listen, before I read those

00:11:53--> 00:12:03

we see and we observe and listen to how it was difficult for him. I want to talk about the fact that Zaid actually divorced Zainab because I think that's over overlooked a lot.

00:12:05--> 00:12:09

That if you are I just again, I told you the story, I give you some information about him.

00:12:10--> 00:12:42

He is ranked amongst the Sahaba probably within the first year, the highest ranked amongst amongst the highest he's one of the first people to accept Islam, Khadija Abu Bakr, Ali and XID, right those four we don't even know exactly we don't quite remember why we don't know that the three houses who did it first we're not 100% Sure, right. But these first four people that are the Allahu Anhu was called by the prophets of Allah. He said I'm headbutt Rasulullah he was the most beloved to the prophets. I said, Salman was called the head woman that had the beloved son of the beloved to the Prophet. So lesson and that was that was the known any description of him, at least not to somebody

00:12:42--> 00:13:11

ever seen walking outside of his home without a shirt on except one day when Zaid came back from from the from a battle that he was sent for he was sent to go fight and he came back it took longer than expected and he finally came back into profit. So I'm heard zaimes voice knocking on the door and he ran out of the house without a shirt on. He too who started Eli Omaha I never saw him actually walk out of the house without getting dressed properly because I usually when we take care of as I was calling us up that day, he was so excited to see and he hugs at me was he wasn't wearing wearing a shirt.

00:13:14--> 00:13:40

So he's one of the highest rank Sahaba Zainab, very soon after this story ends, you're going to be the wife of the prophets I'm sure gonna be called Omen, what meaning are the Allahu Allah is gonna be called on remote meaning for the rest of her life. And she was known to be one of the most pious women that we have within it within the Sierra, the prophets of Allah is the highest rank ladies, definitely the high among the highest nine, because those are the wives of the prophets, Allah and amongst his daughters.

00:13:41--> 00:13:58

So we're talking about two people who are impeccable, ethically, from a religious standpoint, they are very high in terms of their status, and just and they really have standards and their piety and closeness to Allah subhanaw taala, yet they got divorced, divorced doesn't mean that the two people who are married are evil.

00:14:00--> 00:14:27

Because you divorce your wife doesn't mean that you are evil, or she was, it doesn't have to be like that, and it should not be like that. So, by the way, like as a hidden hidden message gives it to us a number of times, right? It gave us a number of times this, go back to the idea number number 28. Right when Allah subhanaw was calling upon the wives of the prophets, I send them in the second chapter of this or third chapter of the sutra and tell them you need to be

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

in control of Hayato dunya was in it to her if you want the worldly life and the and the provision of the worldly life and that's what you're looking for. You want money you want finance for Thailand, and then come to me or metalcon I will give you provision and money. What will certainly goodness Arahant Jamila, and I will divorce you a beautiful divorce and I'll hunt Jamila is the word Allah subhanaw taala used to describe what the divorce was going to look like meaning no hard feelings, no hatred. We're not going to talk about you in a bad way. You're not gonna be given a bad name. You're a horrible person who left the province I said no, no

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

You will hold will hold on to your to your reputation as a good person if you don't want to live with this financial standard which the that the prophets Allah Satan has chosen for himself. He wasn't poor, but he chose not to live with a lot of provision for reasons that we understand today that maybe they couldn't understand back then. And we don't blame them for it. That if you don't want it, then no hard feelings, we will, you will, you'll be given what you want in terms of any of your financial needs. But you can't be with the profits that you got to be his wife anymore. On Saturday, you'll be divorced Sarah hunt, Jamila, a beautiful, a beautiful, let go Salah Han, the

00:15:30--> 00:15:37

word Salah has not actually the word divorce it. That's the figurative, that's what it means. But literally the word of Salah is to let someone go set someone free.

00:15:39--> 00:16:11

And Jimmy and I will let you go in a beautiful manner, meaning we won't be any gossiping about one another. We won't be trying to rip each other out go home be yelling and screaming and using foul language and holding on to the kids and using them as pawns in the Jonnie in this whole in this in this whole disagreement. And I'm gonna be talking about telling people what a horrible life I had and then expressing how happy I am now that I'm finally got rid of this person out of my life, none of none of that. None of that. It's just we didn't see eye to eye, go our separate ways respectfully, and in a civil manner. And this is what the Quran talks about all the time. You don't

00:16:11--> 00:16:50

believe me abuse with the Pollak those things or to pull off and add a bit more detail you'll see in and you'll see the emphasis on the concept that divorce has to be a decision, not an impulse. Right. It can't be out of vengeance or out of resentment or anger, or just No, no, it has to be a decision where we sit down and we talk and we say I'm not happy and I don't think you are either. Let's try a few things. If this doesn't work out then maybe just for for our own sanity and our own happiness and our well being we said we part ways that we can live better people, we can be better parents that we can be better Muslims. And that and that's why divorce exists for Zaidan Zainab is the

00:16:50--> 00:16:56

example of two people being great, great people, but they just couldn't make it work. So okay.

00:16:57--> 00:17:31

It's okay to say the ad here. We don't we don't see that here and culturally anymore. If someone gets divorced, especially the lady. If he gets divorced, it's always her fault. It's always her fault, the less the guy is, yeah, I need to hooked up on drugs. So yeah, he has to do something horrible in order for it to be his fault. But we always blame the lady for it. He should have found some way to hold on to your husband, you would have found some? Well, maybe they couldn't. Your husband isn't better than Zaid. And she's no better than Zeynep. So what's the big deal? Why are we making this more than it actually needs to be? Sometimes people get married, they don't

00:17:33--> 00:18:03

see eye to eye and they get married again? If you were to study the seal of the prophets I said I'm you're going to be shocked. I guarantee you shocked of the number of marriages and divorces that you're gonna find. People were marrying and divorcing? Yeah, it was a very simple thing. You'll find the same lady married. Like I remember when I was kind of studying and it's about my domains and I had no idea who was married to because every interaction with someone else and she was married to Jaffa alberca Amata Northmet. And throughout her life, she got married to one versus the other and not out of divorce but out of

00:18:04--> 00:18:19

people feisty, Jaffa passed away. She married her he passed away. I'm gonna marry her. He passed away with me she got married to four men. It was Johnny Jett up the waves, beloved, the Prophet says beloved wife, he loved no one more than her. She was married to two men before him.

00:18:21--> 00:18:55

And she had children from them, who lived with her in the home of the prophets of Allah is in them. Hindi Amina Behala, Hindi and heard about two people to a boy and a girl was living with living with Khadija her kids when the Prophet was married her needs sometimes these details aren't Jani shared properly in terms of the house of the prophesies in them. He took care of our kids from previous marriages. His was fine, it was normal. There's nothing wrong with this. There's nothing weird about it. People took care of each other's Ganya children. It wasn't something that was out of the norm. She got married now she's gonna lose her kids, or the guy is gonna lose his kids. No, no one's gonna

00:18:55--> 00:19:28

lose anything. The kids are gonna be mean taken care of, they're gonna find someone to raise them whether they're in the house of their mother or the house of their father, they can be someone there. There's no reason for us to blame either parties in terms of why the divorce happened. You don't have to look down on them for it. I'm not encouraging divorce. I'm not saying okay, go on your hunger strike. No, no, not at all. It's the worst thing you can hope for in a in a marriage. And in a family. There's nothing more devastating to the kid nothing more devastating to you as a person emotionally and psychologically. And even now, he's a humble kid with the hood financially and he is

00:19:28--> 00:19:44

divorced. But it doesn't mean when you need to use it, that you're evil, you made a mistake. That's what I'm trying to say. When it's needed. When it's needed. It's needed. It was done properly. It's done properly. There's nothing wrong with that Zaidan Zaina, but to the great Sahaba to ever live.

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

And they couldn't make it work. Just like any other any any couple in the world. They had their issues, and these issues weren't going away. And they were fighting everyday about it and it just wasn't making life very nice. They didn't like who they were around each other. And they tried to make it work for a number of years and they

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

couldn't make it work. So what were they going to do? They're going to divorce. And that's what Satan zeyneb did. And I think that's important that we, that we, that we acknowledge that. And we and we think about that a bit and contemplate about it.

00:20:15--> 00:20:54

Because we have a very, very ugly Middle Eastern culture that is shoved into Islamic thought regarding marrying a lady who has been married before, right to the point where even Jonnie you could you could be cut off from your family as a guy, if you think of marrying someone who was married before. And you have and you aren't married before, like, if you are a bigger, you're not Yeah, you're gonna get married for the first time. You've never been married before. And you're gonna go marry someone who, yeah, she's a widow, or she's someone who was divorced, then you can, you will, you will get so much pushback from your family. It's unbelievable. And even those who

00:20:54--> 00:21:29

aren't like they're very open minded will push back against you when it comes to their own families. When it's his son or his daughter, they change the way they look at things. And vice versa, in terms of marrying your daughter doesn't to someone who was married before. And that, to me, tells me that we have we have stigmatized the concept of divorce in a way that Allah has found that did not stigmatize it. Like that's not what he did for it. If it was that bad, there wouldn't be a problem in the Quran called Pollak. Mean, divorce wouldn't be an option, we would be like the Catholics and we couldn't do it. If it wasn't an option, but it is an option. All that we need to do is make sure

00:21:29--> 00:22:09

that it's the last option. And then when we do it, we do it. And I'm using the Quranic word beautifully. And it's not really beautiful, elegantly. It's in a civil manner is with respect, meaning we part ways we don't start a war. We don't start fighting. We don't. Yeah, I didn't start talking about how long for you to ever say anything about your wife after you divorced her because now she's someone who's good enough to you. She's not she's not your wife anymore. She's she's a she's a lady who is not related to you in any way and just no relationship for you to talk about any specific details that happened between you and her. This is haram you're you're committing a very

00:22:09--> 00:22:38

big sin. There's a huge sin, you will be held accountable for this. You'll know gamma, you can be held accountable. There's Indonesia and Islamic States. You don't speak of her ever. It's funny that if she speaks of you, it's less of a problem. And if the woman says something of her husband, it's less of a problem. But if the but if the man actually says something about the woman after he after he divorces with Islam, we'll see but you're speaking of someone else's, you're talking about the evidence of the honor of a certain other person, what are you doing, you don't have your business, you hold your tongue, this is an amine or whatever happened between you and her husband routine

00:22:38--> 00:23:12

universe over now? Then you move on with your life. And these details you find in the Quran. Time and time again. It's a hidden message within SUTA Eliza because it talks about the divorce of Zaid and Xena mean people don't like talking about divorce. They don't talk about this. So they didn't say that was kind of never never heard this story. This story is important. Yeah, they didn't. They disagreed. I told you what they disagreed about. They're human. I mean, sometimes like to imagine Sahaba not being human, they're human. He didn't have kids from her. He wanted kids that bothered him they couldn't have kids back then having kids was a big deal. Today is not as big of a problem

00:23:12--> 00:23:40

but back then it was a big deal. You the strength of your family name was based on whether you had kids or not to carry that name. And if you didn't have them, then you're going to forever be forgotten or you're not going to have something to protect yourself and making it mattered for her as well. One of the granddaughters outdone MacFarlane being married to a guy from different tribes somewhere far in North Arabia that no one knew who was once at a certain point the slave wasn't something that she particularly enjoyed.

00:23:42--> 00:24:15

Right? I'm not saying it's right, but I'm saying this is the reality that we're human. And this caused problems and these problems weren't they couldn't fix it. So they wanted to get divorced. So they did. There's no reason for us to shames aid, or to shame Xena, actually we have had nothing but praise for both of them. When we tell the story we say we tell it with with a lot of it we commend everything away behind him and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to increase his his happiness with them. We hope to be like them. Not necessarily in their divorce, because we like them in the way they did their divorce. Because we have no evidence that they fought and hated one another. And they cause

00:24:15--> 00:24:25

actually what we know is what after hearing the story when the Prophet SAW said him when it was finally told by Allah subhanaw taala that Xena is gonna be your wife. He says they to do the hook before him.

00:24:27--> 00:24:33

He says they Tasker if you would if you would accept. So when they parted, they didn't part with hatred. There was still there was still good.

00:24:35--> 00:24:59

It was good with good relationship. It was it was a talking functioning, functioning relationship. Didn't have to be okay I call us I could never ever speak to this person ever again. Now if that is the situation when you get divorced. That means either you or your spouse or both of you are very immature. And it was an impulse. It was just a moment of anger. And then you did it and you hoped that the other person would come begging you to

00:25:00--> 00:25:29

Come back and they didn't know you're sitting there stranded in the middle of nowhere and you have no way to get back. And this happens a lot in marriages where they get divorced. And one of them regrets not make putting him if not both of them are getting they should have tried harder, but because of psychological immaturity and emotional immaturity they didn't didn't think it was an impulse it was just an angry and angry moment. That's not what divorce is. Divorce is a decision. Just like married, do you get married by impulse? But you get angry one day and end up married

00:25:31--> 00:25:34

it's a long it's a decision then why can you end a marriage with an impulse

00:25:35--> 00:26:08

that's insane. There's another cultural problem that we have. This is not right. Read the Quran the Quran tells you the opposite the client tells you you need two witnesses for for divorce to the client says I know that the mother had a different way of looking at it for cultural reasons that existed back in the 97th century. But you need just like you need two witnesses to get married you need two witnesses and it means a decision you said you talk to people you talk to your spouse you come up this is not working we need to end this for the well being of everyone involved in this that's where we're going to end it's not so that we can spend the rest of our lives reading that we

00:26:08--> 00:26:25

did it and hating on one another and then abusing our relationship and destroying family ties and now to families are going to be forever enemies. Why Why would that be the case? Why can be why can it be so often Jamila and elegant and civil and civil?

00:26:26--> 00:26:29

partway? Okay, so I want to make that

00:26:30--> 00:26:46

introduction before we recited the area and now it's like number 37 probably up to 30 to 40 It's all 190 cluster of verses that have give us a very very important meaning so we're starting with number three seven

00:26:47--> 00:26:50

Hey Nina shame on your body watching

00:26:54--> 00:26:58

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim

00:27:02--> 00:27:10

what is doubly lovey Allahu Allah He were and I really

00:27:18--> 00:27:21

am sick because Oh Jack our 13

00:27:27--> 00:27:32

went to Fina seca law whom nobody

00:27:37--> 00:27:39

else can

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

help to and the OSHA

00:27:52--> 00:27:54

they don't mean her well.

00:28:02--> 00:28:08

Were Janaka Lika Isla Hakuna me Nina Herradura.

00:28:17--> 00:28:26

Fi zware G didn't bring him either. I mean, who were poor or

00:28:36--> 00:28:40

what can am rule law Hema Fula

00:28:45--> 00:29:24

is the code we live in. And when you are when you said to the one whom and I'm Allahu alayhi, whom Allah subhanaw taala had bestowed His blessing upon him. Noseda of Allah who I know when you read his life story, when we question What blessing was bestowed upon us at being abducted at the age of five and sold around for a number of years, and then living most of his childhood asleep. Allah subhanaw taala bestowed His blessing upon him by allowing him to live with the prophets of Allah hasten and being one of the earliest and first Muslims and forever and ever his name be remembered, actually, as we just read right now. He is the oldest Wahhabi whose name is in the Quran.

00:29:25--> 00:29:34

There's no other one. So for them Kabbalah, they don't write minha Ouattara, his name is there. It's like it's almost as if zayde

00:29:35--> 00:29:41

What is a lose this think about that moment, where does he end up losing in his life that really mattered to him?

00:29:43--> 00:29:50

More than the abduction itself, his last name, he was known Zaytoven Muhammad and he walked around like that for years.

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

And now in Medina, he was Allah was at Muhammad. He was even How do you say to him that was the most devastating thing that ever happened. Meaning he was his pride that he cared

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

I read that he was the son of the Prophet. So I don't know how you said that Mohammed meant a lot to him and it was taken away. Allah subhanaw taala made it up to him by putting his name in the Quran until you're milking to be recited.

00:30:11--> 00:30:14

So you may you may have lost your last name Zaid but you won your first name.

00:30:17--> 00:30:52

Your last your last the last one but your first name was removed will be forever and ever recited in the Quran is the only name that you can read and get 3030 minutes every time. Every time we say you don't if you have been taken with the Quran 300 Because three letters within that within the Quran. No other hobbies name in the Quran, by the way, we're gonna go to Haiti, he is his friend or his companion, but not the name. The only one who was named was either the Allahu Anhu or though I think there's a little symbolism in there and this is upon Allah, Allah subhanaw taala he takes any gifts, and he takes any gifts. So I don't think they saw this coming. But when you lost

00:30:53--> 00:31:03

that last name that gave him I think a certain comfort that and then when it's taken away, you have to live with the fact that that's gone. So he was it was made up to him by by something even better.

00:31:04--> 00:31:40

So when he is the guru and as you say, to the one whom I'm Allahu Allah whom Allah has bestowed His blessing upon by putting his name in the Quran and granting him to be one of the first Muslims well I'm Talia new Mohammed has also bestowed Your blessing upon him you have taken care of him you have raised him you've made him your own made him your own son, you treat him like a son you love him like a son and you take care of him like a son. So someone who is both both blessed by Allah subhanaw taala and by you Yeah, Muhammad, as you tell him and cyclic as Oh Jack, hold on to your wife and hold on to your marriage with tequila and feet, Allah have some fearfulness of Allah

00:31:40--> 00:31:58

subhanaw taala revere Allah or protect yourself from the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala I know better isn't that we tell one another when you do something we think and do something stupid. Tequila. I remember Allah Subhan you remember the punishment? Yeah. And he maybe consider protecting yourself from being punished later on by doing something that you know you shouldn't do.

00:31:59--> 00:32:33

The prophets Allah said, I'm told XID I'm sick. Alec is Odjick what tequila? Hold on to your marriage. And even though inside he knew it was it wasn't it wasn't gonna work. He knew what was gonna happen. But yeah, yeah, he has to say some of those. And then when he asked to see, no one will ever come to you, and say I want to get divorced, you're like, go for it. I'm behind. You know, if you if you do that, you probably have an agenda that you're working towards, you probably have something you're hoping for you and you at the end, at the end of it, anyone comes to you, because to be honest, when people come to you with something like that, they're hoping to get that response.

00:32:33--> 00:33:06

They're hoping for you to push back so that they can reconsider their position and maybe work on any any unmet needs, or or immaturity that they're carrying in there are psychological problems that they can't seem to deal with or whatever it is, whatever it is that they're suffering from or dealing with. They're hoping that you you give them a reason, maybe to reconsider their position. As a colleague as Oh, Jessica watercolor, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave him the advice that he needed to give him. Hold on to your wife, hold on to your spouse a bunch of your marriage and have reverence of Allah subhanaw taala project yourself you guys aid. Well, what would you tell him? What

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

tequila is very interesting to me. Why is it what tequila?

00:33:09--> 00:33:17

dizzied is divorce right? I was just telling you, there's no big deal, right? You can do it. Why he's telling what tequila?

00:33:18--> 00:33:56

Because if you do it with the wrong reason, if you do it for the wrong reason, then yes, it becomes sinful. And that's why divorce is stigmatized, and so many Muslim cultures. If you do it for the wrong reason, if you have the wrong idea, then you harm yourself and you harm your spouse, and especially your spouse, meaning the man, yeah, he wants to get a divorce. And he's 45 and he married his wife and she was the same age as him when they got married. She's 45 And he's doing it for the wrong reason. He's gonna be held accountable for that. And you see that a lot. And it happens a lot. Now he's 45 he's well well established in the community a lot of money. He's still young he

00:33:56--> 00:34:05

physically not saying his prime but he's still he's still right 45 But his wife now she can't have any more kids. Not he most likely does. You can't reproduce anymore.

00:34:07--> 00:34:21

The marriage market for both 45 year old men and women isn't the same. So when he thinks of doing something like that, that's not fair. It's not fair. What does the law half year old think about think What are you doing for the right reason? Is it really for both your sakes? Or is it just you being

00:34:22--> 00:34:37

Are you just trying to punish someone here are you trying to it's not an accusation dizzied Allah who I know he's not being accused of anything here as we saw for Xena but worked out even better like he he's only I mean, she wouldn't have been only McMahon you know, the Allah who I know had this whole story not happened. Right.

00:34:38--> 00:34:52

But that needs to be reminded. And and because the Middle Eastern culture I'm sorry for using the term but I think it's the most appropriate in terms of just really realistically and practically to vary

00:34:53--> 00:35:00

the quality it's a masculine culture, it to masculine even meaning it focuses on the IT

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

will always pull towards the benefit of the male and it was something very often very commonly overlooked the benefit of the female specifically, and even even when the Quran even when the Quran is telling you otherwise, even when the Quran is trying to give you or it's clearly and specifically state something that you should be paying attention to what you should be following. And I think that's something that we should always keep our eyes open to, because it wasn't always like that. It wasn't like that. It was like that, and Jackie Leah, and then for many, many years within Islamic Islamic prime, things weren't like that. And then maybe the last 400 years when the lava fell or was

00:35:36--> 00:36:12

falling, and many of the Muslim countries were colonized and poverty and ignorance entered, that masculine culture of Jahangir came back again, full circle and entered the society. And now we're trying to rid ourselves of it, but this time, it's harder than it was with the Prophet. So I said, I'm keen. Why, because when the prophets of Allah Allah, He was telling them came and dealt with Jay Helia. It was called J Helia. Like, it was a part of a pagan way of thought. So it was easy to identify, you could differentiate between was Islamic and what is pagan JD. Today, you can't do it because they taken Jania and they mixed it with the deen. And now it's masked, it's masked by

00:36:12--> 00:36:18

Islamic Chinese speakers, Islamic thought. So it's harder for us to kind of weed it all out. It's much more difficult today.

00:36:20--> 00:36:55

Generally ideas that are that are embedded in Islamic Guinee. But ways in Islamic Muslim and Islamic practices within Islamic Muslim culture and Muslim societies. It's hard to weed them out now, but they're still there and doesn't mean that we shouldn't be trying to do it even more. And we shouldn't be looking out for the Afghani for the rights and the and the well being of society members, regardless of their gender or age or any background. And I think that's something that you take, when you read when you read the Quran, you learn you much more. I'm psychotic. xojo with tequila. That's what you said, Yeah, Muhammad, the one whom I bestowed my blessing upon and you have

00:36:55--> 00:37:22

bestowed Your blessing upon what to Fifi enough sick, and you'll hide within yourself within your heart within your mind. Mala Houma de what Allah subhanaw taala is going to make public very soon. You're hiding in your heart, something, whatever it is, you're hiding. The dream is, you knew it was going to happen anyway, you knew that this was going to happen, but he gave Zaid, the proper advice. Are you feeling how he was feeling some audio sent him at that moment? Like no why? Why was he why didn't he want this?

00:37:24--> 00:38:02

I mean, come on, let's be honest. How many men wouldn't be happy with the with an offer of a new wife? No, no, I'm just kidding. No, I'm not kidding. Yeah. How many men on the planet wouldn't be happy with it? This is almost something that is any big. But the problem as I said was problem wasn't with that. At least the last issue was the fact that he was going to marry someone whom the Arabs considered to be his son. And that is within John Healy. Guinee realized unacceptable. And in Islamic laws, are you allowed to marry the divorcee of your of your own of your own offspring? No. So if your son was married to a woman and a divorce, you can never ever marry that person. If you

00:38:02--> 00:38:46

marry a lady, and you divorce her, you can never marry her mother ever or anyone who who descends from her or above her ever again, sister, meaning horizontally, maybe vertically, up and down, you can never do it. And the same thing goes for this example. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and we had the word Thank you, Monica akumina Nyssa Isla naka de sel, if you can marry Whitlam, your father and your sons are married in terms of women, but Zaid was he the Prophet Salah Samson, he wasn't biologically and Yanni, Jade from a genealogical perspective, they were not related at all, they were very far away. So there was no problem of him actually marrying Zainab Islamically, or the

00:38:46--> 00:39:18

majority perspective. But that's how they look at it because the Arabs believe that when you when you adopt someone, they become your biological kid, and they're going to carry your name. genotyping stamp said no, it's not like that. You can bring a child into you. And we talked about that when we talked about adoption and orphans at the beginning of this surah number of of weeks ago, that you bring someone into your house, you can treat them like your kids, you can call them your my sons, you can call your parents and you can even have their names on passports, but they have to know that they're not actually your biological kids. It has to be something known to the community that these

00:39:18--> 00:39:54

aren't these not my child. He's not my biological child, but it's but I consider them to be mine. It means just a matter of honesty, and amount of clarity in terms of Jani heritage, legacy and genealogy. So the prime minister said his problem was with that, that he was going to marry Zane up there's going to be a lot of backlash than when I've been in the hood. And then we should again the pagans of the Arab world, were going to eat this up. They were going to use this horribly, and he and he feared the backlash and didn't want the bad publicity for the Muslims. Because Alia seducing him all his life was very, very, very

00:39:56--> 00:40:00

careful that he didn't do anything that any

00:40:00--> 00:40:38

You want to become and say that that was ethically improper? Or that is to hold something against him and say that look, you did this wrong all his life so I said they had nothing, they could hold nothing against him an example of that in the Quran, were in your curricula Dina Cafaro loosely punakha Be humble sorry, him, the messenger zikr were kulula in a hula Junoon the Arabs, when they saw you, they were so angry that ethically you had done nothing wrong ever they couldn't catch. They had nothing on you. There was not one dirty story regarding the Prophet sallallahu Sallam at all. So when they looked at him, they stared at him so hard, as if almost they wanted him to slip and make a

00:40:38--> 00:40:55

mistake. Like they almost Jonnie eyeballing him into making a mistake is a figure. It's a figure of speech mean they're looking and doing I said, so hard to hold and challah, he does something wrong. Have you ever felt like that towards someone? They're so good. And you hope they make a mistake. And then they they're not as good anymore. And people don't like them as much. And

00:40:56--> 00:41:02

it kind of leveled the playing. You must say, as a kid that happens all the time as children, we feel like that a lot as children.

00:41:03--> 00:41:34

Another kid who everyone seems to be saying he's so smart. He's so good. He's so obedient. And you're the kid who was sitting there who's Yeah, his hands is full of dirt and your dad is just, you're not. And you're hoping that you have this kids mess up and you enjoy when they mess up. Because finally, now you're just like me, you're not better than me. So the problem is, I certainly couldn't get anything on him. So he would stare at him stare at him with such anger and hatred, hoping you would make a mistake, but he never did. So what they say Well, no, no, no limit you noon. They will say he's insane. Some Allah Allah your

00:41:36--> 00:41:55

insanity. Is it a sin? Is it an ethical problem? No, it's insanity, right? Because they only said that, because they couldn't find something on him to say you're a liar. Or you're a deceiver, or you did something that was ethically improper. And then Allah subhanaw taala gave him this dream. And you woke up with like, oh,

00:41:57--> 00:42:01

you could see what was gonna happen next. And this caused him How would you summarize,

00:42:02--> 00:42:30

this caused him distress and discomfort, because he didn't, was so careful all his life not to make a mistake. And he didn't realize However, and this is not a mistake. And this is HSE mistake. Why? Because I told you to do it. Because Allah subhanaw taala commanded you, so it can't be a mistake. And I think and ethically It wasn't me. He was not marrying the wife of his offspring. Some of them it was mainly the wife of Xena who was not his offspring.

00:42:31--> 00:43:04

But still the distress was inside of him. But Allah subhana wa Tada called him out on it. So Allah Allah Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, these are some of the is that when you read them, you know this is from this is the word of Allah subhanaw taala no one in the street mind would make up the Quran and then put an ayah like this about his own self. So if you were if you were to if you were to imagine for a moment that Allah made anything up why would he put this in here? Now why would this ever be here? What's your fee fee and if SICA Mala who nobody here and you then you, you hide within yourself what Allah subhanaw taala is going to expose and make public what Dasha nurse and you're

00:43:04--> 00:43:23

fearing the backlash you get from people. And you feel that people are gonna say, well, Allahu Akbar and Daksha and Allah is more deserving of your reverence. You're, you revere people and what they're gonna say in their opinions and how they look at this, Allah subhanaw taala is more deserving of your reverence, some Allah Allah Muhammad.

00:43:25--> 00:43:43

As far as to learn, this is these are very deep in terms of the meanings that we take from it. So Allah Allah, He was telling him was also human. He was a human being. He had the noble intention of why, but Allah subhanaw taala even when the intention is noble, if there's something that is higher in the list of priorities, you'll call him out on it.

00:43:44--> 00:44:06

I say what to Allah, and Joe Lama, a blind man came to him so lesson AM, I did this a number of months ago, if you remember, a blind man came to him. He said, Yeah, Muhammad Alemany Marla McCullough, Jana Sula, limonene and Marla McCullough teach me from Allah has taught you and he can see and the Prophet says me speaking Tahlequah or Yanni Abuja Hello, but how come or

00:44:07--> 00:44:25

whoever or whatever he's been doing the big guys, and he looks at this man coming to him. And he knows now that he has to go and talk to him because he's asking for knowledge and leave the person who is very close. So what does he do? Does he say go I'll come later. Does he say I'm not going to speak to you know, he just frowns?

00:44:26--> 00:44:45

The guy couldn't see it. The man the blind man, he's blind. He couldn't see the frown so it didn't he didn't know what happened. You only knew the proper size him frown when it was revealed, you know, MCDU had no idea. The problem was like, Lola ism saw him coming and he frowns like, I have to speak to him not alright. Right. Unless it doesn't No, no frown.

00:44:46--> 00:45:00

Subhanallah got it. No, the priority was you wouldn't you shouldn't frown. But he was blind and I did it for a good reason. It's easier to talk to someone who wants Islam than to talk to someone who hates it. Obviously. If I'm having a conversation and you don't like Islam, and you're picking

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

Got everything I say You're tiring me I'm getting tired at the end I'm answering every single, tiny little bit debatable point. If someone who's gonna NOD is easier if you're gonna nod everything I say I'm much happier to talk to you. So why so he was actually hoping to do the more difficult job than the easier job and for a noble reason. And he did something that the guy couldn't see. And yet no, you're not allowed to do that. Obviously what they will learn Joe Hold on No, no Greek. No, he can't do it. So Allah, Allah, he was similar. He was held to a standard you and I aren't held to right. And here, he feared for the backlash that the Arab were going to make against Islam, not

00:45:34--> 00:46:01

against himself, he feared for the deme he feared that they're gonna say things that people would believe later on, it was less than the possibility in the probability of people accepting Islam. So his heart was in the right place. He was hoping that Islam he didn't want anything to stay in his reputation so that Islam could spread and then he would that's why he was scared of this. But in the priority know, what was prayer? What was higher priority than that fear? The command of Allah I showed you the dream you saw it, you know, what was gonna happen next.

00:46:02--> 00:46:34

Don't Don't wait for the interpretation what's gonna happen? He was heart was in the right place. And the lesson of his goal was I don't want to do anything that would stain my rep so that I could continuously teach the team and it did happen by the way, when he did get married to Xena people spoke Oh, they spoke a lot. And the others walked around and Josina saying Muhammad and Joe says Oh, Roger Halle Letta bunny he that Muhammad married the wave of the wave of his son and they walked around Arabia and spreading the sinner heard him said Elijah live inside but then we're going to read next is going to fix the problem for him, some of them so his heart was in the right place. It

00:46:34--> 00:46:53

wasn't for his it wasn't a selfish need wasn't a personal interest issue. It was for the sake of Islam, but Allah told them the priority list was wrong and Muhammad Rasool Allah, you knew which one you know what came first? Well Shana, you're fearing the battle. you're reviewing the backlash of people. Well, Allahu Akbar and Tasha revere the backlash of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada

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

fear Allah subhanho wa.

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

Don't feel that people have to say

00:47:02--> 00:47:37

we do that a lot. We do that a lot. In our lives. I think that's very important importance of this area. We do that so many times where, where, you know, it's time to pray. But you don't want to do it in front of these people because they may say or do something, to fear what they may have to say, but you don't fear that Allah subhanaw taala may not be pleased that you got the vote or you postponed vote or postponed also, if you didn't do it properly. You are praying as if you're in a marathoner. Why, who are you fearing more? Why are you fearing these people more than Allah subhanaw taala why? Why would you review what they have to see and not reveal what he has to say? subhanaw

00:47:37--> 00:47:42

taala says you're only reveal Allah subhanaw taala in this one example, and again, I told you so

00:47:44--> 00:48:13

uncomfortable when it talks about stuff that people don't like talking about these students rarely explained why because there's things about the Sahaba they shouldn't have done and things about the wives of the Prophet saw him they shouldn't have done and things about Zaidan Zainab and how they do and the thing about the prophets I said it himself is not comfortable. It doesn't mean at any point that we bring down the status of any of these people no one knows they're human but they did we learn from it and we become better and we it yes, we we preserve their status as you make something clear. Yeah, fine. This is

00:48:15--> 00:48:15

saying that

00:48:17--> 00:48:50

just felt it or he should not have like given the advisement. No, no, no, he shouldn't. He shouldn't. Yeah, so he shouldn't have gotten so much distress. The word here is how much mean the word that is the key word and that means just how much distress he was just in distress and a licen them he was uncomfortable and he carried that uncomfort with him because of that idea. That was his problem what he said I'm psychotic is he going to believe he should have said of course that's what you say to someone. But what took 15 FC come Allah who will be here with Duchenne nurse that was the problem you withheld something that you knew Allah was going to expose and you and you revered

00:50:09--> 00:50:47

Number 38 states the issue with clarity mean, either told us a story and give us the reasoning of why Allah subhanaw told him to do it because there should be no challenge in terms of a man marrying the divorcee of someone who he adopted who was not really his biological son. There shouldn't be no homage Why should you? Why should there be Homage in something that's not haram? That is basically there's the concept here, by the way, and I'll talk about that in a moment. Makana Allen NaVi min halogen there has never been and should never be a saya. That's the meaning of Mecca. There should never be how much distress or discomfort or difficulty upon the messenger upon the prophets I send

00:50:47--> 00:51:07

them female funnel Allah hula regarding things or issues that Allah subhanaw taala has has obligated or as made obligatory upon or He has commanded him to Makkah and to be human, how much you should never feel distress or comfort towards what Allah Subhana Allah has commanded him to do. Why would you feel distressed?

00:51:08--> 00:51:37

Soon that Allah He fillerina Holloman covenant, there has always been Allah subhanho Zwei sunnah. The word sunnah I know we use it today, there's at least six different meanings for it depending on what you study. So Hadith sunnah has a meaning if you study it has a meaning if you study the different meaning if you study you see it as a never meaning and then in the Quran has a wholly different meaning completely different means so it's one of the most important words to understand like they should be just listen just to take their word and then explain what it means. So when the guy goes says so nice to him, based on what I what do you mean which one of these six meanings are

00:51:37--> 00:52:13

you referring to so that we don't lose Yachty we don't we don't end up misunderstanding what we're talking about. Soon that Allah he I mean the way of Allah. So in nutshell, this is the way of Allah, this Allah Allah subhanaw taala has treated fillerina Hello macabre all those who came before him, all those who came before. Cool. Hold on for a minute. What can I umbrella here, Nakamura and the Command of Allah subhanaw taala has always been a distant decree. But urine is a decree something that Allah subhanaw taala is predestined is going to happen. You can resist it, you can like it, you can accept it, you can Jonnie refuse it is going to happen maca. Dora is destined. So a destined

00:52:13--> 00:52:50

decree is going to happen. It's going to happen. There's really no stopping it. All that you really should do and can do for your own sake is just accept because it will make it easier for you to deal with certain things. But who are those who came before whom this is the way Allah subhanaw taala has treated them or has done or dealt with him in the past Lavina uban Laguna rissalah Tinder the ones who convey the messages of Allah, we shall know and they revere him. When I have shown that I had an ill Allah and the reviewer, no one else will get Fabula he has Seba and Allah subhanaw taala as the one who judges us is more than enough.

00:52:52--> 00:53:30

So going back to the I had before, right before it said with Darshan, so Allahu Akbar and Daksha and you revered people and their backlash in their opinion, they should have prepared Allah subhanaw taala he is more worthy of it. And when he came to the high after he stated the the Sunnah, or he stated the decree that does the Cadore he told him you should never ever feel distressed yeah Mohammed or discomfort upon a proper no prophet should ever feel distress or discomfort when Allah subhanaw taala gives him an obligation and a decree of Allah is destined. And that is the way of Allah subhanaw taala with those who came before, the ones who came before who conveyed the Messages

00:53:30--> 00:53:48

of Allah talking about all the messengers before him, some Allah he will send them the ones who revered Allah and only Allah. To the prophets, Allah said and this was a reminder for him, yellow suit Allah you revere only Allah, you revere no one else. You have reverence in your heart for no one else. Especially when Allah subhanaw taala gives you a command.

00:53:49--> 00:54:27

That was for the sake of Islam. Yes, I know for the sake of Islam and Muslims, but you were given a command by Allah subhanaw taala do not revere people and their opinions. When you are given the command by Allah, this is such an important lesson for all of us. Well, let me go through this every day. He told you to do something, do it. But it doesn't look good. By the Muslim I'm not sure it Yeah, and I'm living in a non Muslim community and I want to bid did he? Did he command this he did then do it? Then do it you should not have how much you should never feel the stress in terms of following the Sunnah and following the Ummah and following the Kadar and following the commands and

00:54:27--> 00:54:38

Dustin decrees of Allah subhanaw taala should never find distress in it. And when you do feel fine distress you know that you're you're mixing up your priorities you're messing up what is what is more important it was less important

00:54:41--> 00:54:51

it's a very delicate issue in the Quran this release if you're extremely I'm going to make an analogy here this is gonna sound is gonna kind of I don't know may freak you out to me not

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

when they send that about the profit so they sell them the original stop there. She is not to slam he had he had the right idea.

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

He he saw this coming. He saw that if he did this, this was going to be the Command of Allah. The backlash was going to be horrible, right? But Allah told him no, no, I told you to do it, you do it. And the backlash is not your concern. You don't fear that especially when they tell you to do something. Okay? How do you look at this an ally send me married Xena as Allah subhanaw taala commanded him to do so. But the backlash happened. Actually, it happened even worse than he had. He had initially thought of a license and went beyond what he what he thought was gonna happen. I mean, they didn't stop at seeing that he married the wife of his of his son, the divorce see of is a no

00:55:32--> 00:56:12

no, no, they started drawing an analogy. They drew an analogy with one of the prophets whom the Jews had already put a bad reputation for. There was a prophet who was given a very bad reputation wrongfully. His name was Joe Dali, he said that he was accused by the Jews within the Old Testament and the New that he married the wife of a captain that he sent to war to die so you could you know the story. Amazing Grace, I've heard design that's what they think about they think about this, this act of this horrible act that they accused one of the loss of Valentine is great prophets have and how should he dealt with it, so don't ever do it. And the Quran talks about the story totally

00:56:12--> 00:56:42

differently, and rectifies the story in many, many ways you can be so excited to see what I'm talking about. But the accused node is Allah subhanaw taala saying this is the Creed is the Sunnah of all the prophets before you the ones who came before you and they did what Allah subhanaw taala told them to do they conveyed the message in the revered no one else so just like that, who was given the bad rap, you're not gonna you're gonna be given the bad rep as well. Even though you didn't do it. Yeah, Mohamed salah, and I'm humbled. So just like the food was given that that bad rep in the southern drawl you analogies, especially the Jews does it look he did. And he started

00:56:42--> 00:57:14

doing the same thing. And the Arabs loved it. And they loved that and they accused him selected him of doing and there are a lot of a hadith Hadith about an earthen Lopa. There's a lot of you you study that if you if you take an old seed that just kind of puts together all the everything that was ever said about the eye, you'll find a lot of different narrations that have no that have no basis no authenticity that accused the prophets of seeing and saying that but like Is it him Hashanah? Who said Allah Allah will tell him no, but that was not he's not the first person to be accused of that. He's not the first prophet in history that would was accused of the same thing

00:57:14--> 00:57:49

before and just like double dot acnm was innocent of it. Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is innocent of it. But what is the point here? Mercan Allah never human halogen female follow the law, who? No prophet no messenger should ever feel distress or discomfort in doing something Allah Subhan Allah has commanded them to do. And so do we. Why waka Feb Allah He has seen but that's why, because none of the people will ever judge you you're milking them and the only be Allah who's judging you. No one's gonna judge you. They're gonna be standing there. shivering, in fear, scared for what they've done and what they've said and how they've behaved. And you're gonna be starting with Allah subhanho

00:57:49--> 00:57:53

wa taala. We're going to tell him, but but people what people?

00:57:54--> 00:58:25

Tell me what people when you tell him, you're gonna ask you what people? The people people were gonna say which people right now look around, where's the people? showing me the people that you're afraid of? That you're scared of their opinions and their gossip? Where are they? It's only me and you? Who do you fear? did? Did you not know this was going to happen? Did you not know that? You're going to stand in front of me and only me and answer to me and only me? You don't know that? Yes, I did. Then what do you what are you telling the people in those afraid of people in their opinions? And what is this? Wait, what are you talking about? Do you not see the difference of your life?

00:58:26--> 00:59:02

Yeah, I need to live the life range of 7080 years that you're gonna live on earth and infinity that you're going to have your milk piano, you're willing to put up with my anger for infinity, but not the anger of a few people for 70 or 80 years? Is that what you're saying? What Kapha biller? He has EBA I know it's a it's a small, two, three words at the end of it. That's that's the whole thing. It brings it brings everything together. That's what it's talking about. Allah subhanaw taala is because I believe I see you I mean, he's the only one whom you need in terms of judgments. He's the only judge people they pass judgment all the time, but their judgment means nothing. And it's

00:59:02--> 00:59:20

completely useless and it's worthless. The only judgment that actually means anything is a judgment of Allah subhanaw taala be happy with that and be aware of that and revere that and prepare for that and nothing else. The final i in this chapter makine and Mohammedan. About hadn't really come there's a very complete

00:59:21--> 00:59:28

is an important one. Makana Mohammed bin Salman has never ever had him read Jurlique from a father of any of your men.

00:59:29--> 00:59:31

No men Sulloway said no.

00:59:33--> 00:59:34

Why does that matter?

00:59:35--> 01:00:00

If you study prophecies, historically, prophecies came or were descendants through through genealogies or a father and a son and a father and a son starting to hide them it is to them to know that's how it continued right? And if Muhammad Allah Islam has caught him in the beam, then it only makes sense that he had no male descendants to ever to carry the prophecy after him on yourself to Islam. So one of the main

01:00:00--> 01:00:21

major reasons or the the major reason or the main reason why he didn't have a male son to carry his name after him settled I sent him is because he has caught them in the beginning. That's where my kinda Mohamed about, I didn't realize it was not a father of any of your men. There's no one after him to say, Well, I am the son of rasool Allah, and I will carry it. No, because we're all the children of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

01:00:22--> 01:00:54

Where do I Where do I know that go back to the beginning of the SUTA. Right? And maybe you are with me, Nina meaningful seems like the if I told you guys to remember at the beginning, the introduction is preparing you for what's going to come in the middle of a suit. I couldn't, I couldn't let you know. I was a spoiler alert. I couldn't tell you what's gonna happen later, when he says at the beginning of the surah in the BU The prophet is more important to the Muslims, to the believers in the importance of themselves to themselves is more important to you than you are to you. Here's you and his and his wives are like your mothers. So if he if his wives are like your mothers, and he's

01:00:54--> 01:01:31

more important to you that he's more than a father to you sort of nice to them even more than a father. That's why he wasn't a father, a biological father to any of you. Because biology he doesn't matter anymore. It wasn't going to be Islam was not going to be passed down based on on inheritance of blood was the passed on based on inheritance of knowledge that could get passed down based on inheritance of closeness to Allah subhanaw taala love and time and effort that was going to be spent for the meaning of this message and what it carried. So stop talking about fatherhood and you know, Monica and Mohammed Abba had him originally come however, he was or Sula, Allah, the Messenger of

01:01:31--> 01:02:06

Allah subhanaw taala wahat them in need, maybe even to sit in the seal of the prophets. He's a seal of the prophets and listen to him the final one. There is no doubt within Islam there is a Jamar amongst all scholars and this is such a rare thing to ever to ever be able to talk about within the deen that anyone who believes that a prophet came after Mohammed Salah Salim has left Islam immediately that anyone believes for a moment that there's a prophet who was sent after rasool Allah so Allah Muhammad leaves Islam immediately he can believe in wherever he wants to believe in, he could read leave in the Quran and parts of the Quran. He believes that after Mohammed Salah there

01:02:06--> 01:02:38

was another messenger of Allah subhanaw taala is out of the deen there was no no more prophecies after him civilize them that door is closed. But from that day on, he left some lights and and the legacy that would allow us as Muslims to continue this message to carry it on within our lives within our societies and to humanity because he left the Quran and the lessons in the Quran. Some of the lessons in the Quran that actually talked to him some of life's elements, something that he should have done that he didn't do, or something that could have been done better. What action he shouldn't shouldn't reveal people here should reveal only Allah subhana wa Tada Is that Is that

01:02:38--> 01:02:53

making sense here? Well, I could lawsuit Allah he will haunt him in the beginning. What can Allah who be conditionally human and indeed Allah subhanaw taala has been an always is an always has been knowledgeable and all knowing of all of everything.

01:02:54--> 01:03:31

It's funny, these last words of ayat are usually just explained quickly and then we Okay, we're done the other one of the most important parts of this whole, everything I said today is summarizing that the last three words I just said, Well, what kind of Allah who equally Shana Halima, if you know that you should be good? Allah subhanaw taala you do something? Yes. Then cross. He's all knowing. He's all knowing he knows everything. Why would you? Why would you fear someone else? Why would you question it? Why would you feel distressed? Why would you feel discomfort? Why will you? Why would you hesitate? Why would you overthink and complicate something why He is Knowing of all he told you

01:03:31--> 01:04:00

to do it. We're good. Carlos, if he wasn't knowing of all and he told you to do it, then you would question it. And he would say, Well, did you did you pay attention to this part? Like if your father and your or your friend kind of tells you okay, I need your supervisor to go and do this, this this? And you say, Well, did you pay attention to this aspect of it? Well, you'll say that because you know, he's not knowing of all he doesn't know everything and not all knowledgeable. And he may say, Oh, yes, he's like, Oh, look at that. Actually, I completely forgot about that. I'm glad he said something, we would have ruined it had you went and done what I told you to do without you drawing

01:04:00--> 01:04:08

my attention to that aspect of it. But he can do that for Allah subhanaw taala as well. remind him of something that you paid attention to that he didn't pay attention to.

01:04:10--> 01:04:14

Then why would you ever question anything you were told to do by him? subhanaw taala. And he's saying that

01:04:15--> 01:04:53

the belief in the fact that He is all knowing subhanaw taala should be the comfort in your heart in terms of following his command. No matter how difficult you think or feel that command may be. No matter how much discomfort and distress initially you feel towards the command. The fact of akan Allah will be equally shaken Alima should ease it should mend it out. He is early. He knows more than me. Why would I? He knows everything. I have no reason have no reason to fear this. I just go with it. And then if that's not enough, look at Fabula he has Eva remember, he's the only one who will judge you You're welcome. And that should completely seal the deal for all of us. I hope that

01:04:53--> 01:04:54

was beneficial next time.

01:04:55--> 01:05:00

We will start a new chapter is not really new chapter it's commentary.

01:05:00--> 01:05:12

We talked about it is going to magnify the status of Rasulullah. So I said I'm just in case you right? Listen to me reciting these ideas and you got you misunderstood what I said and you thought maybe that I was bringing down

01:05:14--> 01:05:31

a bit of his status and I said him I said something about him that Jani was was dismissed immediately that I got to talk about him. So let's determine and bring the status up so that you and I can have no doubt that yes, maybe he missed prioritize something but that wasn't a sin. And it was there for us to learn less about call it up because that is truthful and that has happened that is adult
