00:05:25 --> 00:05:29

in our series that we carry on, and continuing in,

00:05:30 --> 00:05:39

which is correcting concepts. Last week, we touched upon the concept of chivalry or masculinity radula

00:05:40 --> 00:05:52

and we talked about the various different angles that Quran has taken for us, so that you and I can have a definition of what this chivalry or masculinity entails.

00:05:53 --> 00:05:54

Is it

00:05:56 --> 00:06:00

young men with long mustaches and big beards,

00:06:01 --> 00:06:04

is it having muscular bodies?

00:06:06 --> 00:06:20

Is it that you're strong? Is it that you have a position a sea level position and accompany a good car in a big house? What are the definitions of chivalry and masculinity in

00:06:21 --> 00:06:24

Sharia and in specific in the Quran?

00:06:26 --> 00:06:42

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he wants, again, correcting concepts. He saw some of the Sahabas and they were sitting with one another and they were mocking at the skinny and feeble legs

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

of Abdullah even Mr.

00:06:46 --> 00:07:01

Abdullah even Mr. Rude, he climbed up the tree. And as he climbed up, obviously your shin and your calves get exposed. But he had a really skinny into there. The men they were like they were laughed at it. They were like, look at these feeble weak legs and they were laughing.

00:07:02 --> 00:07:12

So Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw them mocking and laughing the skinny legs of Abdullah ibn Abbas Radi Allahu

00:07:13 --> 00:07:20

the Abdullah bin Masood. And then he turns to them he said, Well Allah He these legs

00:07:22 --> 00:07:23

are heavier than a herd

00:07:24 --> 00:07:26

in the eyes of Allah subhanaw

00:07:27 --> 00:08:01

So is it that muscular structure that we so dearly and some of our young men want to achieve? What is it what is masculinity? Oh my God, Allah Who and once he sat with the Sahaba and he said, ask them a no, make a wish. What do you want to wish for? Somebody's like, Oh, I wish I get this and I wish I get this and there was a list. Then when they were done with wishing everything. They said Yeah, I mean, you make a wish. It's your turn. Like we've done our part your turn. And he says, I wish

00:08:02 --> 00:08:05

that Allah subhanho wa Taala termina

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

lo anally Reja.

00:08:09 --> 00:08:11

I wish I had men.

00:08:13 --> 00:08:15

Like, obey that even Jehovah

00:08:17 --> 00:08:19

and was even Jevon.

00:08:20 --> 00:08:42

And Abby who they fall for us, they're in OB him so I use them and I seek help from them. Allah, Allah Karim Allah kalima Tula, I use them so that I can can be a source they can be a source of raising and venerating and sanctifying the Kalima have ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.

00:08:44 --> 00:08:45

And other time

00:08:46 --> 00:09:02

these are our IG some of the men were equal to zero while others were equal 200 why others will equal to 1000 once Khalid Ibn Walid, he was in a place and he was trying to to to free a land

00:09:03 --> 00:09:08

in Villa del Hira and he was over there towards the upper portions of Sham

00:09:09 --> 00:09:29

and he recognized that he ran out of army and he's going to need some support, and he's going to need some backup. So he pauses the expedition and sends the message to none other than Abu Bakr at that time. The Allahu an Abu Bakr Radi Allahu allah sallallahu Rajala noir head

00:09:31 --> 00:09:33

Abu Bakr sent him one man

00:09:35 --> 00:09:36

when the man arrives,

00:09:38 --> 00:09:56

holiday been worried, reads the message and it says Ya lead. Oh Khalid or sell to laka I have sent for you Rajon one man, be elfia module. He is equal to 1000 men

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

and he was none other than

00:10:00 --> 00:10:04

Back are been among a Tamimi.

00:10:05 --> 00:10:07

Nobody could wrestle him.

00:10:08 --> 00:10:20

So he was not just the physical strength, the the the all that people have for his presence as a man was so terrifying for people that he could not stand in front of him.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:27

And other time. This was during the Khilafah of Emirati Allah Juan Zubair Abdullah one.

00:10:29 --> 00:10:40

He is the brother in law of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married to the sister so Aisha and Asma bint Abu Bakr. They're both sisters and Zubaydah. One is the brother in law profit tele laude

00:10:41 --> 00:11:03

and Mytho Dibner Amazon and Uber so so the sorry I'm gonna have no class was in Egypt and he was on the expedition of opening Egypt and he asked him what are the hola hola and can you send me some help? I'm in desperate need for our Salah who are very region he sent for men. Zubair Abdullah one

00:11:05 --> 00:11:08

the brother in law of Rasulullah. Saw Salam milk dad ignore

00:11:09 --> 00:11:24

roba tip, no summit and Muslima Tip No Malad Radi Allahu Anhu Jemaine Well, Carla Omar, and to letter for them. Well call Allah home. Yeah, Omar. Ja, Alas,

00:11:26 --> 00:11:31

my dad Touka br bar I have helped you with for

00:11:32 --> 00:11:39

the Jaiden they're all men. column minimum, every single one of these.

00:11:40 --> 00:11:42

You saw the Alpha

00:11:43 --> 00:11:46

I've sent you an army of 4000 men equal to four.

00:11:48 --> 00:11:49

So what are they talking about?

00:11:51 --> 00:12:11

I mean, this is and the list can go on. The list can go on if for example, one of the times the Khalifa OMA we Khalifa he saw a young man he was sent by a he was sent by a comb from Yemen I forgot the name but you know that comes and he was a young man. So that Khalifa he says

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

is Herb leave.

00:12:15 --> 00:12:22

I will not talk to somebody like you bring me a son No mink bring me somebody older than you.

00:12:23 --> 00:12:26

So this is a young man he says for Karla Cheb

00:12:27 --> 00:12:28

Yeah, I mean, meaning

00:12:30 --> 00:12:36

no Karnataka Domo be sin, or Amina don't mean if the matter was about age,

00:12:38 --> 00:12:40

Locanda fill Almighty man who are older, I mean,

00:12:42 --> 00:13:20

there are much older people than you. And I mean, if it was a matter of an age, then you're not even worthy of being an immune because there's much more older people than that. But SOHCAHTOA who Khalifa Allahu Kalam. So these were men, they held on to some responsibilities. This this masculinity of ours, which sadly has been looked down upon in the recent times in the last 10 years. You can't even talk about it. And these words of toxic Max masculinity. And all of this is misunderstood, because masculinity is not about a man going in his house and asserting his power. Masculinity is not about going and screaming at your wife and kids and they're terrified from you.

00:13:20 --> 00:13:27

Masculinity is not about you being in your job, a tyrant and everyone is scared of you. Masculinity is not about

00:13:29 --> 00:13:30

a bully.

00:13:31 --> 00:13:33

That's not what men do.

00:13:35 --> 00:13:41

That's a misunderstood concept. That's only manliness.

00:13:42 --> 00:13:43

T there are two different things.

00:13:45 --> 00:13:48

One is Jimmy Lee, you were born as a man, you can't control that.

00:13:50 --> 00:14:11

But you choose to become a man. They're two different things. You're born as a man, that's one thing. But when you make the choice to become a man, that is Jubilee, that is something you attract. So last week we talked about that he died on soda coma I had Allah. These are people who fulfill the promises.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:34

Anything that they have promised with Allah and people they hold on to their words, their true to their words, when the going becomes difficult, they don't back down. When they have to speak up against that, which is injustice, they stand up even if there are consequences. They don't bend down and we talked about it. For those of you that missed it, you can go back and listen to that hotbar.

00:14:37 --> 00:14:42

And then we said there were other attributes. Before we get into the next attribute,

00:14:43 --> 00:14:59

this masculinity of ours, not manliness not being agender meal. The masculine te Allah subhanaw taala talks about it as an empty Nan. It is a blessing that Allah has given us where Allah subhanaw taala says when

00:15:00 --> 00:15:09

In Surah, al Qaeda the person says to this his friend, aka Fatah, Abdullah, the Halacha mean to rob some mommy not for sama. So why

00:15:11 --> 00:15:28

are you denying the one who has created you from a * of top of *? Then he formed you and fashioned you into Rajul. If you read the entire Quran, many times Allah subhanaw taala has removed the names

00:15:30 --> 00:15:36

of individuals who stood up against tyrants but left you a specimen of masculinity.

00:15:38 --> 00:15:44

And we'll talk about that. Today's verse is La Masjid on osteocyte. Taqwa.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:59

Where are these men going to be found? In massages? Allah says La Masjid. Don't ask for the masjid or Sisa either Taqwa the foundation of massage, it's the foundation of every Masjid should be Taqwa.

00:16:00 --> 00:16:21

It shouldn't be that I support this group or that group or this section or that section. That's not why those massages never flourish, because these are the houses of Allah. And Allah should be the greatest above all of our divides and disconnects and differences. When we sign and we say Allahu Akbar, we're all unified in that.

00:16:22 --> 00:16:31

We set aside our agendas, we set aside our political agendas, whatever people may have, we set aside our minut differences.

00:16:32 --> 00:16:39

95 to 96% of us have the Sharia is unified and we're all united.

00:16:41 --> 00:16:47

Lama shouldn't use this or the taqwa the foundation of our massage. It should be Taqwa.

00:16:48 --> 00:16:52

We should get really angry when somebody is not living up to that.

00:16:54 --> 00:17:12

Because in this house, in any Masjid of Allah Taqwa is the barometer. Lemma should do this or the taqwa mean actually ohm and this is talking about Koba, but it's also giving you a foundation that that Masjid will flourish it from day one, the foundation was not factions but Allah.

00:17:14 --> 00:17:16

Allah taqwa and then Allah says

00:17:19 --> 00:17:29

a HELCO and Takoma fee to Prophet Allah Salam that those are the massages that you should seek out it is talking about mustard there are but that's a side note. Then Allah says what fee he

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

Regeneron in those massages, you will find men what's the quality that Allah describes about these men? Fee hitting Jalan you hate buena tapa huddle, they love to be pure. They are pure in their bodies. They're pure in their clothes. They're pure in their hearts. They focus on purity from inside and out.

00:17:59 --> 00:18:40

They're focused in this element of cleansing themselves. They're not focused and at Oh, look at this person's I even look at this person look at this and that they're not focused on others. They're focused on yatta yatta Heroux. They're trying to cleanse themselves of all the ailments of the hearts. They're trying to cleanse themselves of physical impurities. They're trying to keep a look that is beautiful. That's why Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he was commanded in surah was he Abacha Fatah Hill, purify yourself, the Allah they said to see out there. There are seven meanings of it. Number one is the dress of yours. Number two is your heart. Number three is your mind and number

00:18:40 --> 00:18:49

four is the place where you pray. Number five is the way you carry yourself. Number six is the way you walk number seven is the way you talk

00:18:53 --> 00:19:01

with the burqa purify your existence, so that covers you

00:19:03 --> 00:19:06

fee here he died on your hip bone, Tata Haru

00:19:09 --> 00:19:23

wala who you have a hearing, and Allah loves those who wants and their focus is multiplied in their quality that Allah describes, or that they're just focused on cleansing themselves.

00:19:24 --> 00:19:31

While Allah who you have been with Tata hitting, may Allah make us from those that they will Allah loves those who are focused on that.

00:19:34 --> 00:19:34


00:19:36 --> 00:19:38

Allah subhanaw taala says another IO

00:19:41 --> 00:19:59

febrile youth in Edina Allahu uncertified, while Utica Rafi has smooth right these are the houses in which Allah's names are being venerated. Will will do we will soil in the morning in the evening. Why is this region there are men in that those houses lie to

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

He him the genre tune their trade and commerce does not distract them from Allah. Naturally he him to Jarrah tune wala by your own no commerce or trade or job or seeking money ever comes in the way of Allah. That's a man. A man is where Allah is first and his job is second.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:32

A man is where Allah comes first his family his job everything comes second and not only that over here Allah is saying La tune he him

00:20:34 --> 00:20:36

he doesn't distract them.

00:20:37 --> 00:20:39

Let it own get occupied with it.

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

Subhan Allah,

00:20:43 --> 00:21:00

La to Lee him to Jarrah tune while by your own and victory Allah, wa economy salah they are not distracted from what things number one, the vicar of Allah remembrance of Allah. Ask ourselves how many of us have daily words?

00:21:01 --> 00:21:48

How many of us have at least 100 Subhan Allah has and 100 Alhamdulillah and 100 Allahu Akbar daily. How many of us have the word of Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad 100 times? How many of us do a stock fit Allah still fit Allah still fit Allah for verily the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one Majlis would have been heard over 70 times seeking instead, he had not committed any sin. So Allahu Allah who said, how much are we in need of that vicar to resuscitate our dying hearts? How much are we in need of that vicar and that remembrance to to to moisten our tongues and to plant the trees in Jannah. So that when we enter we see every single tree when you Say Subhan Allah, Allah plants a

00:21:48 --> 00:21:55

tree and that tree, the length of 50 for birds wants to fly and the shade of that tree for 500 years would not cross.

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

So behind Allah

00:21:59 --> 00:22:02

Alhamdulillah Allah who occupied

00:22:03 --> 00:22:22

fee he retired Allah told him to obey your own their commerce street jobs is not distract them. I'm Vic Karela. Buy your own Anzick grilla from the remembrance of Allah. And then when you are in that state of remembrance, what you call me Salah establishing prayer.

00:22:24 --> 00:22:31

Every single one of us irrespective if you're a man, it is and you don't have an excuse.

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

You don't have an excuse.

00:22:35 --> 00:22:36

We have to be in the masjid for Salah.

00:22:38 --> 00:22:46

And if you're living in these lands and sometimes the jobs are difficult, I've done corporate world to then at least we strive to pray in GEMA

00:22:47 --> 00:22:51

even in the corporate towers, find a masala get a couple of buddies and pray together.

00:22:53 --> 00:22:58

And as a Muslim, try to make sure that your hair either Fajr or Orisha, one of the two

00:23:01 --> 00:23:04

there's no reason why this Masjid is filled in Juma

00:23:05 --> 00:23:07

and for Asia we have four lines.

00:23:10 --> 00:23:15

There's a real question mark and every single one of us as a man by these definitions.

00:23:17 --> 00:23:26

We cannot get distracted or I'm too tired. I just got home from work. Not accepted in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala as an excuse.

00:23:28 --> 00:23:39

Because about your jobs Allah subhanaw taala says Lana's Anika this con no Natsuko homework. I don't ask you to provide for your families. We give food to them and to you.

00:23:41 --> 00:23:54

What if God is Salah, what Eater is aka giving zakat? I was shocked the other day I was at lunch with somebody and the person did not even know the outcome of Zika and he's 55 years of age.

00:23:56 --> 00:24:03

He said Oh shit, I didn't know I have $30,000 of cash. I have to put zakat on that. Or $50,000 of cash.

00:24:04 --> 00:24:14

I'm like you've been 55 These are our pillars. We cannot meet Allah subhanaw taala if we're neglecting our zakat

00:24:16 --> 00:24:19

what eata is the Catherine's God is wajib

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

we can't wait till oh I want more pleasure so I will give it in Ramadan

00:24:27 --> 00:24:49

if your nisab the minimum amount which is roughly $5,000 If you have savings have that in your bank you have to give two and a half percent of that there's not as I got course but you know depending on your goals and stuff it's it gets complicated but again, you have to give you can't wait because every single day you wait according to the majority of the scholars a person is sinful.

00:24:51 --> 00:24:59

It's literally like a law of Salah because after your household after your one year is complete, had Lolly Casa

00:25:00 --> 00:25:04

Got worship at Alec zakat becomes wajib every day you delayed

00:25:06 --> 00:25:08

for every day there's a delay.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:35

Then Allah subhanaw taala says, What Eater is aka Yaja fauna? Yo woman that upper level fee Hill global will absorb? Their fear is not over how am I going to provide for my family? How am I going to provide for my next generation? Do I have enough savings? How was my 401k How was my this and that that's not their fears. Allah says their fear is your ha foreigner their fear is only one

00:25:38 --> 00:25:51

which is yo woman on that day that goofy Hill Konoba will have Asad the hearts and the eyes would be looking left and right and they will be in trembling state on the Day of Judgment.

00:25:52 --> 00:25:56

Their only fear is they have to stand in front of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:25:57 --> 00:26:04

May Allah grant us the TOEFL. And the ability to start with at least one of those things

00:26:05 --> 00:26:09

and build it in our lives. And if I was to start with something I will start with Salah.

00:26:10 --> 00:26:22

So every single one of us that is here and close by to this house, the masjid, make an intention that you want to be here for a shower today. Make an intention because you make the intention. Allah fulfills.

00:26:23 --> 00:26:25

It's the intention that counts.

00:26:27 --> 00:26:32

According to our stock for Allah Allah commonly cited in Muslim infrastruc farofa in the whole world for writing.

00:26:34 --> 00:26:41

If I can have the brothers please stand up and move up there's all these brothers that are standing at the back and form full so forth please

00:26:42 --> 00:26:44

fill in the soften, stand as if you're praying.

00:27:12 --> 00:27:15

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Mala Anna yerba

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

Inshallah, in the next hotbar for Allah gives us Sofia up in Herat, we shall cover

00:27:30 --> 00:27:35

the attribute of being Rajul is that you're steadfast on your deen at the times of calamity.

00:27:37 --> 00:27:48

And we will have some examples from the Quran to be able to testify that that how did these people stand up against the tyrants of their times, knowing the consequences that they will be killed.

00:27:51 --> 00:27:58

And that is something that we all as a community should prepare ourselves. Because if we're not recognizing where things are headed,

00:27:59 --> 00:28:02

you only have to look into Europe and what is taking place.

00:28:03 --> 00:28:07

That's it. You only need to look at Europe. Kids are being taken away from being Muslim.

00:28:09 --> 00:28:27

Oh, this mother is too religious. She wears a niqab. The family services are taking away kids in the last year and half Muslim kids, more than 4000 Muslim kids have been separated with their families in Sweden and Scandinavian countries.

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

On the premise, you're too religious.

00:28:32 --> 00:29:12

And that's coming down here. rest assure that is going to come down over here. So it is going to get tough. But we can only stand against that toughness if a first we fulfill the first of these four things that we talked about, as a men, connection to the masjid, being here for Salah, zikr and Zakat, and only if you're standing in front of Allah subhanaw taala The second is going to be some examples in sha Allah that we will will give inshallah in our next hotbar which allows us to solidify that and we'll close this inshallah. Next week bathe me night Allah in the end we ask Allah subhanaw taala to send his choices blessings on prophets, Allah Allahu Allah you seldom Allahumma

00:29:12 --> 00:29:55

salli wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam to Seaman cafetera alberic Allahu Allah Muhammad. Muhammad come about Okta, Allah Ibrahim Awada, Abraham and Nakamura Majeed. We asked that Allah subhanho wa Taala truly grants us the ability and understanding of Quran and gives us the ability and the strength and the tenacity to be true men. We ask that Allah subhanaw taala guides us through role models that we can look up to and we can become like the true men of the past. We ask that Allah grants every single one of us Iman, and Allah grants every single one of us Iman and sadaqa, while the sun and Shakira Well, Calvin Hoshyar, we ask that Allah subhanaw taala

00:29:55 --> 00:30:00
