hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. So one of the virtues of Taqwa is that it increases your nobility, your real nobility, which is in the sight of Allah azza wa jal, human beings were designed Allah azza wa jal, he calls us, the lumen Jehoiada that we are oppressive and we are ignorant. And so you'll always find human beings and, you know, times large groups of human beings who seek to establish their dominance or their superiority, superiority over another group of people and they'll use that by their race or their ethnicity or their gender, and they deem that to be a reason for them to be superior over others. And Allah azza wa jal, he says that, the way that Allah
azza wa jal see superiority one over the other is through Taqwa Allah. As he says in a Croma command Allah He attack him that the one of you are the ones of you that have the most Dukkha those are the ones who are the most noble in the sight of Allah azza wa jal. So here we have an obvious method of competing with each other, for those who want to be superior and want to be the best and want to be the most noble, that they seek that through being the most conscious of Allah azza wa jal, the ones who fear Allah as a yet the most. And another way that people you know, seek out nobility is through marriage, right? And that's one of the reasons why people get married the prophets Elijah said them
he says that a woman can be married for for and one of them is for her nessa for her lineage and vice versa as well, that a woman can marry a man who will, she will ascend in her lineage due to due to marrying. And so the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam. When people get married, they marry for these different things. And you you see it all the time, right? A woman will get married to a prince and she'll become a duchess or she'll become a princess. A man will get married to a very noble family and he'll become the governor. All of this happens all the time. Now. A beautiful verse in the Quran, if there is anyone who would be come noble because of their marriage, then it would be
the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam absolutely right? Even then Allah azza wa jal says to the wives of the Prophet Yanni Sat Nav less than a minute Nissa he says, You are not like any of the women. And that's true. There's no one like them and their nobility and their loftiness in their position of being the wives of the Prophet sallallahu has said live in having the opportunity to be his wives in Jannah, in the highest part of Jannah.
And so Allah azza wa jal still places a condition that you are not like any of the other women in a Titan. If you have dako. And that verse to me, I just love it because it's this concept of Taqwa comes even in that place. And it shows the consistency of the messaging of the Quran, that if it was from anyone other than Allah, there would have been some contradictions there would have been some discrepancy. But this consistency and messaging just shows that this is not coming from anyone except from the Lord of the Worlds. May Allah as again make us of Turkey.
