To be

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

smooth

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

who knows us better than we know ourselves

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

is not a man.

00:00:26--> 00:01:01

So when we, as Muslims are true to Islam, we are not obeying a man, even when we obey the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam why do we do so? It is because the Creator of the heavens and the earth has given that man authority. That is why we do it. When we obey our husbands, is it because Islam is subjugating us? No, it's because out of his wisdom, Allah subhanaw taala the Creator, who is not a man has told us to obey our husbands.

00:01:02--> 00:01:11

Allah Subhana Allah told us what the purpose of our life is. And he told us well now Holika to Jinnah will entail Alia

00:01:12--> 00:01:18

he told us a levy halacha loader will hire other lineable You welcome.

00:01:19--> 00:01:30

That is the purpose of our lives. He is the One who created death and life in order to test us who is the best Indeed, He created us to worship Him.

00:01:31--> 00:02:30

And He our Creator told us 1400 years ago, that we are both men and women equally important. Allah says first Pooja boom and Nila OB or amla, Annabelle iminco Minda Korean a Windsor, bow DuCommun bow for Lavina Hi, Joe. Well, what did you mean the hem were all through visa vie Waqar tell you what to do? Like Oka from whom say to him? Well, the Filipina who Jannat in 30 Min tactical and how so while the minion dealer, world law who end up who snowthrower Allah tells us and the Lord responded to them, never will I allow to be lost the work of any one amongst you, whether male or female, you are of one another. So those who emigrated or were evicted from their homes, or were harmed in my cause,

00:02:30--> 00:03:01

or fought or who were killed, I will surely remove from them their misdeeds, I will surely remove from them their sins, and I will surely admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow as a reward from Allah. And Allah has with him the best of rewards. And there are so many verses in the Quran, in which Allah subhanaw taala emphasizes to us that I will not allow you, I will not allow your deeds to be wasted, whether you are a man or whether you are a woman,

00:03:02--> 00:03:31

Allah subhanaw taala tells us that we as men and women are not the same. And of course, he knows that he is the creator of men and women. And so it would be inherently it would be extremely unjust, of the creator of men and women who knows that we are different, to put exactly the same rules exactly exactly the same expectations upon two beings who are different. Allah says, well as a Buckaroo Khalifa, the male is not like the female.

00:03:32--> 00:04:13

And Allah tells us stop comparing. We're not it's not about competition between men and women. We complement one another. Society needs both men and women working together. We are not part of this individualistic, individualistic agenda, where we say that the individual is the only thing that's important, and the individual reaching her or his goals is the most important thing regardless of what effect it has. This is not Islam, Allah subhanaw taala revealed in the Quran. And this was revealed at a time when when selama as the Morpha city and se came to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and she asked him

00:04:15--> 00:04:21

and she was kind of doing our job, you know, wow, the men when they get to go and do jihad and they get this reward.

00:04:23--> 00:04:42

And Allah Subhana Allah revealed this verse. He said, while at a man Noma football Allah will behave Allah Kumala lil Regina syllable magnetizable while in is, you know syllable membaca seven was alarming for Lee in Allah I can be equally shaken Alima

00:04:43--> 00:04:56

Allah said don't wish for the things that Allah has made some of you excel over the others. So the things that Allah has given one of you to do, don't, don't compare and don't wish for that thing.

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

And then Allah said for the

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

Men is rewarded for what they will do and for the women is going to be rewarded for what they do. What Allah have in front of the intelligent ALLAH ask him if there's something you want. Ask Allah. And then Allah reminds us in Allah can be equally shaped in Alima that Allah is Knowledgeable and you are not. He tells us he's knowledgeable over all things and we are not a Lost Planet. Allah has the picture and we only have the pixel and we think that we can use our minds to come to conclusions about what's best for humanity
