Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen well are able to remove the pain or the Antoine Illa Allah the mean why should you Allah Allah illallah wa de hula Shakira EULA hula over the you know what if you didn't know what should do under the Vienna Muhammad Abdul who also known Mustafa I mean Allahumma salli wa cinema radical Abdi Cora Sonica Muhammad Anwar early he was Samia Jemaine I'm back. Welcome to another episode of vertiv SEO page by page and inshallah to Allah today we are on page 65 of the Quran which is in the fourth juicero to earlier Imran. In the previous couple of episodes, we've been speaking about some of the

00:00:58 --> 00:01:33

traits and attributes that Allah azza wa jal has mentioned concerning the believers. And foremost amongst them is their attribute of calling others to Allah azza wa jal in joining the good and forbidding the evil and how Allah subhanaw taala also mentions that this is something which are amongst the previous nations, those prophets and messengers had believers in their nations and disbelievers. And for those who are believers of those messengers, and in those prophets at that time, Allah azza wa jal will reward them and give them their full reward and honor them also. But obviously after the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam everyone is obligated to follow

00:01:33 --> 00:02:07

his path. Today we begin with verse 116. From soret earlier Imran And the statement of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada are all limited to him in the shape on a regime in Lavina, Kufa rollin toniann, whom am one who Humala mother Hola, Dawn, you know, Allah He che, we're all equals horrible, nerdy homefree ha ha the dawn. As for those who disbelieve neither their possessions nor their children, will help them against Allah subhanaw taala they will be companions in the fire that will remain.

00:02:08 --> 00:02:40

So in the previous verse, Allah azza wa jal mentioned to us that there are amongst the people of the Scripture and others who came before them, those who are believers and those who are disbelievers. And as we know that Allah subhanaw taala says that those who believe in Allah azza wa jal and worship Him alone, and follow that which they were obligated to follow, whether that's the previous nations, so they follow the previous prophets at the time and they're living off anyone that comes after the time of the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that they follow him, Allah azza wa jal, whoever does so will honor them and reward them. Likewise, Allah azza wa jal then

00:02:40 --> 00:03:20

says in this verse in verse 116, and as for those who disbelieve that nothing will come to their avail, nothing will help them when it comes to them standing before Allah azza wa jal to be judged, neither their possessions nor their children, and that is because often people are one of the major temptations of the dunya. And one of the major things that people think we'll give them comfort or as a measure of their success is either what they own in terms of material possessions, that's wealth, that's property that's land that's caused and so on and so forth, or it is the children and their family. Those two things you will often see is what people seek comfort in, or seek or have as

00:03:20 --> 00:03:51

a measure of their success. And that is why Allah azza wa jal tells us elsewhere in the Quran, that they can be a fitna, there is good within these things that they can be used in a way that is pleasing to Allah azza wa jal that brings the person closer to Allah subhanaw taala. But at the same time, those two things can also become a fitna a trial and error test as Allah azza wa jal salting says in the Quran, in Wailuku, we're allowed to come fitna indeed within your wife, your children, there is a trial and Allah azza wa jal says you will live in a menu in as well as you can

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

do walakum

00:03:54 --> 00:04:30

or you who believe in deed within your spouses, your children, there are enemies to you So beware. And that's because sometimes it is our children that caused us to be misled and cause us to be misguided and sometimes it is our one that causes us to do haram and to disobey Allah subhana wa Tada. So Allah azza wa jal says that these people who spent their whole life accumulating wealth, growing their families thinking that this is their measure of success, and their way of salvation. Allah says a numeral to Yama will not benefit them in any way, on the Day of Judgment, they will not come to their aid when it comes to standing before Allah azza wa jal and being held to account what

00:04:30 --> 00:04:47

hula equals harbor now whom fee ha ha the dune rather these are the people of the fire, they will remain there in in verse 117. Allah azza wa jal then puts forth all strikes for us a parable puts forth for us a parable regarding this and Allah azza wa jal says,

00:04:48 --> 00:04:57

mythical man, woman fuel balloon every vehicle hayati dunya, can method et vie Suwan. Assad but how does that own

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

camp method Ed Han

00:05:00 --> 00:05:43

If he or she warned us all about how to flip home in Vallejo foster homes like that, well Valona whom Allah who work in foster home health Neiman, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says that the example of those who give away things in this life are the example of that which they spend in this life is like the example of a frosty wind that strikes and destroys the harvest of people who have wronged themselves. It was not Allah azza wa jal who wronged them brother, it was the Quran themselves. So Allah subhanaw taala is saying in the previous verse 1/16, that these people have spent their whole life accumulating the dunya spending that wealth in whatever which way they pleased. And part of

00:05:43 --> 00:06:26

that spending of their wealth was that they detailed other people from the Path of Allah subhanaw taala. Allah azza wa jal says the root of this water is accumulated all of the spending that they did upon haram and that which is displeasing to Allah azza wa jal, Allah subhanaw taala in verse 117, sets forth a parable forth for it. And the parable is Martha Luma Yun, Fiona we have inherited dunya the parable or the example of that which they spend in this life can methylene urea is like the example of the wind the wind ad is a wind fee has sill within it, there is a violence either it is a frosty wind, or a wind that is extremely cold, carries extreme heat with it. It is essentially

00:06:26 --> 00:07:03

a destructive type of wind. And Allah azza wa jal says Asad batata, calm and when it comes to the harvest the crops of the people, and it wipes it out, it destroys it. Now we know for example, that the that Allah azza wa jal in the Quran often gives examples when it comes to farming, and agriculture. Because amongst the Arabs, these were people, these were things that they were very familiar with, in fact, not only amongst the Arabs, but amongst many of the people of the world until, you know, very relatively recently, the Industrial Revolution, when people kind of started to move away generally, from things like farming, otherwise, it was something which was very mass, most

00:07:03 --> 00:07:42

people weren't familiar with the concepts of farming, because that is how they got their food, and how they source their food in a real way. As far as now, we're a number of steps removed from that process. And so not many of us are familiar with this. But anyone for example, that watches anything concerning farming, and so on will know that one of the major issues that they have to contend with as farmers is adverse weather, adverse weather in terms of a lack of rain, or too much rain, frost or weather conditions and seasons that are out of place. And so one of the things that can come and destroy crops is a frost and an overheating those crops and, and severe winds, they'll come and they

00:07:42 --> 00:08:19

destroy the crops of a people Allah azza wa jal says this is the example of those who spend in this world. On the face of it, it looks amazing. On the face of it, those crops are there, they look right there to God, that's what it is. But in a single moment, it will be wiped clean in a single moment, Allah azza wa jal will cause it all to be rendered null and void, like the wind that comes in within a single moment, or within a very short space of time, it destroys all of that crop, all of that harvest. That is essentially what will happen to these people. They accumulate everything in the dunya dunya dunya. And they accumulate it all, but it will have no benefit of for them in the

00:08:19 --> 00:08:50

next slide, it will completely be destroyed, whether that's at the time of death, because once they die, they cannot benefit from it, or whether it is in terms of the bigger destruction that will take place towards human piano. They come to a group of people this wind comes to group of people that have oppressed themselves and it destroys it. One by one hammer home Allah and Allah azza wa jal does not repress them. By doing this, we're lacking and for Salmela the moon but they oppress themselves, and they continue to oppress themselves because they turn away from the worship of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:08:51 --> 00:08:54

In verse number 118, Allah azza wa jal then continues and he says,

00:08:55 --> 00:09:46

Yeah, you have levena M and Ola, that will be fine. I mean, Dooney Camilla Luna ko hubba Allah What do I need? What do I need to buy that in bulk ba Amin f where he mama toffee sudo room Akbar, for the en la como te in Toontown in one, or you who believe, do not take as your allies or for those who you are intimate with, such as outsiders a spare no effort to ruin you and want to see you suffer. The hatred is evident from their mouths, but what their hearts conceal is far worse. We have made our revelations clear for you. Will you not then use your reason? Allah subhanaw taala says will you believe do not take as your bepanah Your father is a group of allies or the group that you

00:09:46 --> 00:09:59

seek comfort in or the group that you seek support from? This is what we call in Arabic the word but Allah, Allah azza wa jal says that don't take as your close friends, as your close allies as these helpers as your support network Network.

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

Those people who want nothing for you, except ruin, and they want to see you suffer. And this is something which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions have been told about because very soon, we will come now to the passages, perhaps from the next episode onwards, in which Allah subhanaw taala will start to speak about the battle with submission of the Battle of button. And when a community or a people or nation are in a state of difficulty, they're in a state of real difficulty, where they're being attacked, and they have enemies, and they're being oppressed and so on. It is very tempting to seek help and seek alliances, and sometimes those alliances are good,

00:10:40 --> 00:11:17

they're beneficial, that permissible, but sometimes the people that you see around you that you may want to take in as your allies and your friends are actually worse for you in terms of the enmity towards you and so on. So Allah subhanaw taala wounds the believers concerning this issue, he says, don't take from amongst the allies believe people who they actually want to see your Habana your ruin. And they want to see what Duma anytime they want to see you suffer, they hope, and they long for your suffering, and therefore for your misery, and for your defeat. And that is an important principle to remember not only in terms of the wider level, or the greater level, for example of the

00:11:17 --> 00:11:55

old man, the leader of the Muslims, and so on and so forth. But even on an individual level, sometimes when we're struggling, sometimes when our Eman is weak, sometimes when where we're finding it difficult to leave certain sins and so on. It is sometimes and often the case that we will chat to people who are engaged in those since we're just as we can the Manage us and we expect them to be our support network. So for example, someone who's struggling with the solder, doesn't pray five times a day finds it difficult to pray, finds it difficult to remember to motivate themselves, for you to surround yourself with people who are similar, like you who don't pray negligent of the Salah

00:11:55 --> 00:12:32

don't really care about the Salah, is it really going to help you in terms of extending and in terms of improving, likewise, someone for example, who's struggling with certain sins in terms of leaving them off, they're looking at things that are haram doing things that are haram, eating, consuming things that are haram, transacting in ways that are haram, one of the most one of the worst ways is to look for then a support network that is engaged in the same level of Haram as you are in. But actually what you want to do is remove yourself from the influence. Remove yourself from that circle of friends, remove yourself from those people and look at and seek those people that will remind you

00:12:32 --> 00:13:07

that will advise you that will motivate and encourage you to worship Allah subhanaw taala and to do the good and forbid the evil. And this is very similar in some ways. To the west that we mentioned in the previous episode that Allah azza wa jal pleases OMA for being an ummah that enjoys the good and forbids the evil, constantly maneuver with people who are only holding themselves to a higher standard in terms of the Eman and Islam in terms of the worship of Allah subhanaw taala in terms of the piety and the character, that is something we build, which builds you up just as you'd like, like it does in any part of life. If you're surrounded with people who are good in their careers,

00:13:07 --> 00:13:43

good in their studies, good in whichever sphere you're in. That's something which will influence you, it rubs off on you, it motivates you some some some of that comes to you just simply by being in the company, and spending time with them. And the same goes with this concept of allies friendship, brotherhood, when you're with people that are good and upon good and seeking to do good, then there is something which inspires you and motivates you to do the same. But if you're with people who don't do that, people who are negligent of Allah azza wa jal heedless of their obligations and their responsibilities, people who are disrespectful, people who are rude people who

00:13:43 --> 00:14:19

are crude, people who don't really understand the character of the Muslim and the way that they should be and behave, then that's also going to have an impact upon you. And that is why the Prophet told us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as we know that everyone is upon the the religion of the close friend, so be careful who you choose as your friends. Here, Allah azza wa jal is speaking out about a wider level, a greater level and that is that the believer should not take those people likewise only want to seek their ruin and want to seek the harm for the better till bah bah. I mean, for him, Allah azza wa jal says, because their hatred is evident from their mouths, what they see what they

00:14:19 --> 00:14:59

speak. Now, remember that the Muslims lived in a time when, yes, they were being persecuted and they also had many enemies across Arabia. But remember, for many of those companions, many of those enemies will relate to them, their family members, their relatives, their friends, their neighbors, their people who are from the same tribe or the same clan. They're people that they have grown up with and have known. And so when you have that connection with people, then sometimes you think that they will be your support network, or you you want to go and seek some type of support and help from them. Allah azza wa jal says the greatest sign that is people want your harm and want ruin for you.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:33

is that you can see from the very words that they utter from the words and statements that they make from their mouths, that they have nothing except hatred for you. And then Allah azza wa jal says, And the reality is even worse, while my office will do room Akbar, and that which they can see it in their hearts is far worse. So yes, what they see is bad, but what they feel in terms of their heart and what they're willing to do and intending to do is far worse. Or the beginner Nicola yet in quantum taffy, don't. We have made our revelations clear for you? Will you knock the news Wesen

00:15:35 --> 00:15:37

Allah azza wa jal says in verse 119.

00:15:42 --> 00:15:48

It was a bona Humala you're a bona convert to me know that Bill kita be equally here either.

00:15:49 --> 00:15:50

Or either.

00:15:52 --> 00:16:36

Now either Kanawa Duarte como Anna me, let me know how you can move to be illegal in Allah are the enemy that is pseudo. This is how it is here you are loving them. But they do not love you. You believe in all of these of the scripture in all of the scriptures. And when they need you, they say we believe, but when they are alone, they bite their fingertips in rage at you. They say die of rage, if you say to them die of rage, if you wish. Indeed, Allah knows exactly what is in your hearts. Allah subhanaw taala tells us the reality of these people. And that is that these people, even if you love them, they won't love you. Even if you try to make allies of them and supporters of

00:16:36 --> 00:17:10

them, they are not your true allies, and they are not your true supporters. And that is something which is evident as we see in the life and the times of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophets of Allah what He was selling when he came to Medina, as we know, he signed a number of treaties and pacts with the tribes that lived around in Iran, Medina that were non Muslim tribes, they live there, the bunnies are a lot the banana leaves the middle of a new car. These were people who lived in Iran, Medina, and the prophets of Allah who will sell him a firm the right to live there. And he made a pact with them. Don't help our enemies against us, we will help any enemy

00:17:10 --> 00:17:50

against you. You should be people because we live in the same land, we have shared interests we have we are neighbors to one another. We should be people therefore who, who help one another in this way. But we know the reality is that they deceived and more treacherous in those pacts and they broke their words. And that is why as we know, after the the Battle of the Zap, the Battle of the Confederate armies that came when the treaty was broken, the prophets of Allah What are you sending rule concerning them and he exiled them from the city of Medina. Allah azza wa jal says, so this is how it is. Here. You are loving them while you're reborn. But they don't love you. What took me No,

00:17:50 --> 00:18:24

Nabil Kitab equally, and you believe in all of the messages that they were given as well you believe in the books that they were given? You believe in in their scriptures in their prophets in their messengers, but do they believe in your scripture? You believe in Lisa you believe in Musa you believe in that wouldn't say man and secondly, and yeah, you believe in the Torah and the Injeel? You believe in the psalms of their will that he surrenders aboard? But do they believe in the Quran? Do they believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So as long as you're loving them, but they don't love you, you believe in everything that was sent to them, but they reject what you

00:18:24 --> 00:19:02

believe in in terms of the Quran and the prophets of Allah wherever you send them. And that is why those people they have a hypocrisy in your heart with Allah. Amanda, when they are with you, they say we believe we're with you we're supporting you will either color or outdoor are they common anomala mineral oil, but when they leave you, and they're alone, they bite onto their hands or their fingertips out of reach, meaning there's so angry that they're biting on their fingers to contain the anger within them. That is how much rage and hatred that they have towards you, meaning the Muslims the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the companions of the time, say to them on more

00:19:02 --> 00:19:23

to say die of that rage if you wish, meaning that that's how you feel. And that's because of your disbelief and your rejection, then that will cause your own demise you will die as a result of that rage, it will lead to your destruction. Indeed, Allah azza wa jal is on knowing of that which is contained within the hearts in the final verse that we will take into these episode

00:19:24 --> 00:19:59

one verse 120 Allah subhanaw taala then says in them Cisco has entered to the zoom in to see becomes a tree for who will be here are those be water Taboola don't rock on K dome che in Allah Habima Amanda owner Mahi they agree with any good that befalls you and rejoice or you'll miss fortunes. But if you are steadfast and conscious of Allah azza wa jal, they're scheming will not harm in the least indeed Allah in seconds everything that they do. Allah subhanaw taala then goes on to continue

00:20:00 --> 00:20:33

Describe these people in the cells then from the attributes. So we know that from the attributes Allah azza wa jal says that there are people who want to see your suffering from the attributes is that they want to see your ruin from the attributes is that what what that which they say, shows clearly the enmity and hatred towards you. And that which they conceal is far worse from the attributes Allah Azza, which it says is that they don't love you, they don't like you from the attributes is that the hypocritical that they may claim to be with you, but when they're alone, their rage and their pent up enmity and hatred towards you is something which is great, and from the

00:20:33 --> 00:21:14

attributes is that which Allah azza wa jal mentions here in verse 120. And that is that if any good comes to you, they become upset. in them. Cisco has an atom disarm, it harms them, to see you victorious or harms them to see you too. It harms them to see you prospering, it harms them to see you successful, or into sitcom see or to near Franco Bihar. But when some harm or misfortune befalls you, they rejoice and they're happy. And that is there for someone who doesn't truly want good for you. And if you're therefore surrounded, even in your own life, by friends, by people, as we said, at the individual level, by friends, by people who want some good comes to you, they're not really

00:21:14 --> 00:21:50

happy for you. And when some evil and misfortune befalls you, then they're extremely happy, they rejoice in that they, they seem to take some type of Glee from it, and some happiness from it. That is a sign of someone who's insincere, a sign of someone who doesn't really love you or want good for you. Because the one who really loves good is as the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, none of you truly believe until you love for your brother, what you love for yourself. I want to be successful. I want my brothers to be successful. I want to have gender I want the Muslims to have gender. I want my children to memorize the Quran. But I want the children with everyone else around me also to

00:21:50 --> 00:22:28

memorize the Quran. And this thing about the dunya does within us, where it makes us competitive to the extent that I will just for me, for me, no one else. And if I have it, I mean you can't have it because if you have it that means that I can have it. This is not a concept that the Muslim should be familiar with a mindset that the Muslims should have. Rather, we have this abundance mentality that Allah azza wa jal owns the treasures of the heavens and earth, and that is treasures are never exhausting. subhanaw taala so if Allah gives gives you prosperity, gives you success gives you salvation, gives you a good family, a good house, money and wealth and so on. That doesn't mean that

00:22:28 --> 00:23:05

there's not enough left for me or for someone else. But there is enough for everyone. And if Allah azza wa jal chooses to give it to one of us over the other, due to his wisdom, then we're happy for our brothers and sisters. And we make dua that Allah azza wa jal gives them success just as they make dua that Allah azza wa jal gives us success and makes us prosperous as well. But if that person doesn't do that, the people who don't like it when you're having good times when they're happy when you're having bad times, that is a sign of the evil and a sign of their insincerity. And that is where Allah azza wa jal then says, Oh interest bureau with a double. But if you're in that position

00:23:05 --> 00:23:43

with these people, then be steadfast and the people of Taqwa people who are mindful of Allah azza wa jal conscious of Allah subhanaw taala. Because when you're surrounded by those people, you have to be patient. You have to be strong in your Eman, strong in your faith strong in your worship of Allah subhanaw taala and you have to be mindful of Allah azza wa jal, because it is very easy than to stray. It is very easy than to be tempted. And it is very easy to be deceived by those different forces. But if you're people who are mindful of Allah, you're conscious of Allah azza wa jal, you're constantly going to be focusing on what does Allah want from me? What is most pleasing from Allah

00:23:43 --> 00:24:20

azza wa jal will bring me closer to Allah subhana wa Tada and that is why Allah azza wa jal it says if you do this, you have the sub. You have taqwa, your steadfast, you're mindful and conscious of Allah azza wa jal, you have piety lie your dog will complete the Home share, no matter what they can what the scheme, it will never harm you in the least, because Sue can possibly come against your standard history if Allah azza wa jal is willing, and that is why the prophets of Allah where it was said to me the famous Hadith to his cousin Abdullah Lebanon our best for the Allahu Allahu Allah and know that if all of the people were to unite, in order to oppose you, then they couldn't harm you

00:24:20 --> 00:24:56

with anything except that which Allah azza wa jal has already decreed would happen upon you. They can't do anything. All of the people unite all of them come together, and all of them cooperate in order to harm you. They can only do that which Allah has decreed for you already. If Allah wants you to be harmed, you'll be harmed. But if Allah is with you, and He decrees that you will not be harmed, you will not be harmed and that is why after this verse, Allah azza wa jal will mention the Battle of battle, the battle will hurt, because those are very important occasions in the life of the prophets of Allah. What are the wisdom, the history of the Muslims, and they have and they

00:24:56 --> 00:24:59

contain many, many lessons in Allah

00:25:00 --> 00:25:36

Bismillah AR MeLuna Mohit indeed Allah azza wa jal is all knowing, in circles everything that we that they do. And as I said, then from this point onwards, we have one verse left on this page, we will leave that inshallah target to the next episode because it is connected to the forthcoming verses. The passages now begin to speak about these two battles, but primarily the bachelorhood, which is the primary focus on focus of Surah Al Imran, but there is some also hint and some indication of Surah of the Battle of battle. But the vast majority of the surah Now will be dedicated to the Battle of will hug and the many lessons that can be derived from it and the many

00:25:36 --> 00:26:12

lessons learned and from the greatest of those lessons, is that which Allah azza wa jal is telling us here, that if your people have patience, steadfastness, people have taqwa, then Allah azza wa jal is with you, and even in the most difficult of circumstances, when there is harm that comes to you when you are defeated. When you suffer personal clarity and personal hardship and strife. If you are people have steadfastness and Taqwa, then Allah azza wa jal was with you, He will keep you safe and he will honor you and He will reward you and he will allow you to overcome those challenges and to continue to go from strength to strength. So with that, I shall Tada we will conclude today's

00:26:12 --> 00:26:15
