Difficult Issues in the Quran
armina salatu salam ala
Sayyidina Muhammad wa, he was so happy he
was inshallah was continuing with our program talking about,
you know, the splendor of a shadow the Allahu anhu. And the verses that were revealed about this incident in Surah, Chapter 24. And we're talking about this ayat in the last session, and we reached 18, in which our last pantalla said, will you be no la Hola, como de la hora de mon hockey. So Allah subhanaw taala is a saying in this ayah after Of course, he talked about some issues related to that incident. And that there are a group of people who brought up this accusation, false allegation. And one of them, of course, he mentioned the one who led the tower lackey Bruh, who the one who took the lead. He didn't mention his name, but everyone knows his name was mentioned in the sooner he was
the leader of the Manasa T. And then he was Allah subhanho wa Taala started, you know, instructing the believers and telling them about the right behavior, when you deal with this kind of issues. And
then he mentioned after this, if he said will you be in Allahu Allah, if Allah makes clear to you the verses, and Allah is Knowing and wise, this is a team. So Allah subhanaw taala is saying, basically, that he's making the ayat, which includes his proves the lessons of civilizations, the science of his knowledge and wisdom, clear and plain to the believers. That means there is no excuse for someone
who, you know, who would come later on and say, I didn't understand, you know, this message, or I still think that I showed the,
you know, did something wrong? Or, you know, there is no excuse Allah subhanaw taala wanted to close this door here, because Allah, Allah himself and say, I am making these verses clear to you. And the message here in the surah is clear to you, and no one would have any excuse after that. And at the end of the day, he said, Well, Allahu Allah would Hakeem, which means Allah subhanaw taala is the most knowledgeable, and his guidance is the best guidance for humanity. And Hakeem, he knows our nature and he knows what is best for us. And he knows we want to last for Allah talks about rulings about guidance. So this is the best guidance for us. And we shouldn't look for another guidance,
because this is the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then in the next year, Allah subhanaw taala said, in the livina, he boon and tissue and fascia to Villa Dena Amano, Loma de la movie Dunia 101, La Jolla and Tula channel level. So the next 19 he said, Indeed, those who like that a morality
should be spread, or publicly mentioned or publicly shared, among those who have believed within the community of the believers will have a painful punishment in this dunya and in
those who like for this, you know, kind of issues to be spread in the community, and Fantasia and morality, vulgar speech, you know, indecency. If we want this to be spread within the community, these people should be punished in dystonia, and they should await for great punishment or the Day of Judgment. So, this is this word is a warning against the act of spreading indecency within the community. And unfortunately, only this disease, this has become a common trend and now, in the modern age, people in the old days they have only one to to spread evil, which is the human tongue in the old days. Nowadays, no morality and vulgar speech and all these bad things being shared. I
shouldn't say on a daily basis, maybe on an hourly basis, or every minute, you know, people are sharing these kinds of things. You know, the the print and electronic media,
radio and television,
the internet, showbiz and all these Yeah, you name it. Many channels are forcing people actually forcing people to do something, something very bad. It's happening to us as human beings in this age. We are forced to Descente size to immorality. What is the only the this word means that you lose it?
You lose responsiveness you don't respond in a more emotionally, you become insensitive to evil. You know as Muslims when you see evil, you need to make a reaction, you don't like it and you should hate it, this is evil, the last penalty nowadays is different, we are losing this, you know the center end this has a car, the school has a certain moment to be sensitive to this kind of evil accident happening in the community. So, the problem is here one and this is what we are facing in this age when immorality and indecency become you know the the accepted norms of behavior in the society, what will happen to piety, because piety and indecency cannot cannot live together.
So, when these happening with this immorality and all those bad things will become the accepted norm. Everyone is accepting it, people are defending actually this behavior. People are defending the rules and regulations now within governments defending or protecting the rights who are spreading the rights of those who are spreading this indecency and this evil what will happen is, piety becomes a form of escape from normal life. It's a it's an abandonment of this worldly life. It will become weird, strange it becomes it becomes a strange behavior
and that's why it also relies on a law and it was seldom said by the Islam or even
worse a rule to come up with a hurry even for to burn in hora.
So our asuza Selim predicted this, he knows he knew it salat wa salam that this we will reach this stage of affairs or this state of affairs I would say
he in your last answer from that time he said in this hadith Islam began as something strange, people did not accept the message of Rasulullah Salim in the beginning, it was strange to them, I mean, they were worshipping idols, they will find unhappy with their ideology or with their you know, with their sheer polytheism and also last Aslam came and he started inviting them to go back to the Dean of tawheed. And to worship Allah subhanaw taala. And to be to treat their women with kindness and children with kindness and do this and that. So it was something strange at that time. So as soon as I saw him, he said Islam began as something strange, and it will revert to being
strange as it began. Then, at the end, he said four to ballyhoura give glad tidings to the strangers.
If you look like a stranger these days, than you are, you are lucky. Because as soon as I say, let me saying to give them glad tidings, is people who people are many people will look at them differently. These people are weird. They don't have a girlfriend, they don't have those. They don't drink alcohol. They don't listen to music. They don't you know, I mean, this what kind of people are this? So we look very strange, right? So so last slms a photo ballyhoura give them glad tidings. These will be the winners. These will be successful in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So in a nutshell Yahoo on Islam does not accept the public mention of evil.
They below jarabe suit. That's why it also last SLM said kulu. Murthy more alpha Indian puja hero. It said everyone will be fine all members of my Ummah will be protected will be safe on the Day of Judgment Elon, Masahiro, those who brag about their evil
they talk about it they do something in the evening and our solar system explain it. It will do something evening time and in the morning, he looks for his friends and he start talking to them telling them you know, last night I had a good night and I did this and this and this talking about haram activities. So these people will be in trouble on the Day of Judgment. So he said all my all members of my own Baku, Mata Mata la mujer, Hiro la mujer, you know those who expose their you know, since and the the mentioned evil publicly know what back is there? Because they are what is the hikma here? That public mention of evil will encourage other people to do it. When someone starts
bragging about it and looks like he's cool, and he's fine, and he's happy with it, that people will think wow, maybe he's right. Well, let's try it. Let's try it. So encouraging other people to do the same thing. And the social atmosphere will be polluted. And individuals will fall victim to this to this evil habits and you know, immoral vices. As a conclusion yet one as a conclusion in this from this ayah those who like for these vices
To be spread and practice in the community, Allah subhanho wa Taala is promising them a painful punishment, you know in this world through the legal system of justice, so individuals and are supposed to punish other individuals. If we don't have a legal system that will practice the deen of Allah subhanaw taala or rule people based on the sharing of Allah. So as an individual, you cannot take matters into your hands and go and try to punish other people based on the guidance of Allah subhana wa Tada. This is the job of you know, the court, a judge in a court. That's why when so far under Bill murottal when he hits his senate with habit, you will with us last session, right? And he
tried he was trying to take matters into his own hands What happened? So let's send him was not happy with it. Even though in order solace SLM is involved, his family are involved. I shall devote, but this is not justice, cannot take sides here. He's the one who represents justice at the time. He's the judge who was the Messenger of Allah, the leader of the community and the judge, even here, neither. He's his honor was involved in that matter. But as soon as SLM had to completely separate between the two cases, and he had to, you know, make justice between his cerebral savage and between suffering and Morocco at the same time waiting for Allah subhanho wa Taala to send his decree about
either they will receive a punishment in dystonia, or if they don't make Toba then they will face the consequences of their actions on the Day of Judgment. And at the end, the last panel what Allah said, and this is very important, and every word in the Quran has a meaning.
Let's handle at the end of this. I said, Well, Allahu, Allahu Allah. Allah knows. But you know, not. But you don't know. Allah subhanaw taala talking to us talking to the believers, this part of the ayah it is at the end of the ayah it seems like it is a response to those who might think might think that this punishment or this rulings, these rules are a harsh punishment for this kind of crime, you know, talking about spreading rumors about innocent people or, or spreading false allegations against innocent people. So people might take it.
You know, like, I think this is this is not a big issue. We're just talking we're just having fun. We're just you know, passing time
was just sharing some information. It's not a big deal. Allah subhanaw taala Carlota Sabu, Hainan wahoo and ally. avi, you think it is not significant? It is insignificant, but it is a great, it is a grave and serious matter in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So here, this ending of the ayah will Allahu Allahu Allah tala, it seems like it is a response for those who will have some doubts about these rules, that these rules could be very harsh against those people who get involved in this kind of gossip.
So Allah subhanaw taala is the one who created us, and he knows our human nature. And he knows that, you know, that temptation of gossip is very powerful word
is very powerful, and it could be a powerful disease in the hearts of some people.
And that's why as I said, Allah subhanaw taala knows that there are so people that are actually people are divided into two types of people. There are two types of believers. There are people who are able to restrain or you know, control their emotions and their behavior. And they have something called self discipline, they are able to discipline themselves. It is enough when they receive the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu. They just follow the guidance and the sooner without any with he don't need the supervision of anyone. They don't need the power of authority. They don't need someone to supervise them, look upon them and see you know if they are
following the rules or not. But there are people for some reason, they could have an evil nature. They could don't pay attention to the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We need the power of authority. We need this kind of rules.
This is how you know
Islam is looking at the nature of people in the last panel to Allah is legislating these rules for everyone to keep the society pure and immune against the evil of this kind of people will allow to Allah by then in the next hour.
Allah subhanaw taala said, when I will Lucha de como Rama to Allah Rahim. So the earlier it means here, if it had not been for the favor of Allah Ponyo in his mercy
and then there is something that is omitted here or deleted and because the lie is kind and merciful. So, the owner Murphy said there is a part of speech that is deleted, but it is estimated to be showing the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala upon those above those who committed this crime, there is it is deleted, but it is understood from the context. Because the last hotel I said well,
then the one who is listening will expect something, the sentence to continue here, what will happen, if it was not for the mercy of Allah, if it was not for the the fuddle the favor of Allah subhanaw taala upon the believers, then what will happen? Allah did not mention this in the ayah. And he continued and he said, What Allah Allah for him. So the ruler Murthy said, there is a deleted part of his speech that is a clear that is obvious, Allah decided to delete from this ayah and it means the meaning if it had not, it had not been for the favor of Allah subhanaw taala upon you and his mercy, he would have hastened his punishment for you in this dunya because of the crime that you
committed, specifically here, the the slander of a Chateau de la vida, or spreading false allegations against innocent people in general. This applies to the law, and it applies to anyone who falls any who who becomes a victim of this slendering. And then,
the next day Allah, Allah moved after rione, Allah subhanaw taala. The this demonstrated or demonstrated to the believers, the gravity of this crime and the seriousness of the sin, He informed them that what happened to what happened to you, or what happened within this community was a form of following the ways of shapen following the steps or the footsteps of shaitan
shaitan to play the game with you and he was successful. And you follow the listen to him, you follow the path of shaitaan This is what was said in the next I said yeah, you know, later
on, he said, Oh, you who have believed, do not follow the footsteps of shaitaan. So in this part of the ayah, Allah subhanaw taala is inviting the believers to guard and protect themselves against, you know, the the plots of shaytan. And usually the plots of shaitan are called hautbois to shape on footsteps. It's like he will show you the way and then you follow his steps, he will invite you he will just he doesn't force you. Shaytan doesn't force you to do bad things, doesn't force you to do evil, he doesn't have this power. But he will come and invite you. He will come and whisper in your mind in your heart. And he will make the Xen what is the gene is trying his strike, it will try to
beautify this sin in your in your in your eyes, beautify it and give you a different explanation. You come up with a different interpretation and explanation for that act. This is the way I mean, this is what he did to our parents, our grandparents or great grandparents, Adam and Hawaii mesilla if you eat from the tree, you will be eternal. And you will have an eternal kingdom. Shujaat. They said they said he said he will stay forever You will be eternal. And Allah subhanaw taala said, If you eat from the tree, that would be a sin. This is the only thing that you are forbidden to do. But shaitan came and he tried to beautified that, you know I'm sure that Adam and how are different
fruits. I mean, we're talking about gender here. Everything was available for them. But shaitan he left everything and he came to this tree, the same tree that the last panatela told them not to eat from it.
So now the problem is you need to protect yourself against the plots of shaytan against the fitness of associaton. How can you do it? This process here one is not easy, it's mad. It's math. It is met with many challenges. And the main challenge here the biggest problem is is that you don't see shaitan How can you protect yourself from someone or the evil of someone you don't see you're not able to deal with him. You're not able to talk to him. Because if you are able to talk to him and deal with him You may be you will be able to negotiate and to ask for explanation for clarification and then you protect yourself.
Use your knowledge users will be able to protect me. But this is someone that you don't see. He runs in the veins of human, the son of Adam. And you don't see his was was I thought he think that you are thinking to yourself, but it could be an invitation coming from shaitan you think that you are thinking for yourself, you're planning to do things, but he is inviting you to do things. So now we need to solve this problem because we don't see him. We need to know his nature. And be aware about his plots and his heart his footsteps. So we need to know basically his strategies, the way he works. If you have more knowledge about him, you can protect yourself against shaytaan like method
you need to know about Allah, how do you increase your the love of Allah and Allah in your heart? You don't see Allah, we don't see him? How can be how can we be obedient and, and improve our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala
by going to the Quran and learning about both his asthma and asthma and personally the Most Beautiful Names is seafair the attributes of Allah subhana wa Tada, the weightless panthella Ds will deal with his servants, the wailers Hydra deals with his enemies. They were Lost Planet Allah gave victory to the prophets and messengers into the pious people in history. So you study all these things, and what he has prepared for the believers on the day of judgment and the punishment that he has prepared for, for those who disobey, disobey Him, then you get this knowledge and you get an idea, you get some knowledge, increase your knowledge about the law, so you come to love Him and
OBEY Him and listen to his guidance. So shaitan here, you need to know his nature. And you need to know also his the way he works, his footsteps, his his plot, number one, we should know that he is
to the children of Adam a clear enemy.
So he's not someone that you can make a deal with him.
He's a clean enemy. This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala said in the Quran, I do movie, I do a movie. This is his. And he said he is on the sole mission to deviate the believers from the right path. This is his mission on this earth. He doesn't have something else. This is his plan. This is his mission to take you with him to jahannam. And he tries as I said, to leave the believers astray by various schemes, in accordance to the victims interest
is very important. He will try to know what are your interest What are you desires. If you are not interested in in soccer, you don't like soccer, for example, at a time of the prayer, he will not invite you to watch a soccer game. Because he knows that you don't like to watch soccer. But you like to watch Mithen to play
electronic games or you have another desire, then he will invite you to do this, instead of going to the JAMA, pray with the JAMA.
And if he's not able, he will try to Matheran to if there are two things that are happening at the same time. But when people are praying genizah and you have a chance also time to pray or to report. So at the time when people are praying General shaida knows the best deed for you is to participate with Muslims. You praise Yunus but he might invite you he knows that it's difficult for you, for him to invite you to go and watch a movie or do you're in the masjid. So invite you maybe to reply.
Why? Because it's less rewarding at that time. At that moment. People are praying janazah you pray generally you shouldn't be doing something else. This is the best deed at that time at that moment in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. So he tried to delay the VA. In many ways. He has many ways in many, you know, schemes. One of his ways is to distract the believers from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is we got it from Sora telemarketer and to implement a method to implant that fitna, implant animosity
between the believers and fitna division, hatred between the believers and of course he has some tools when it comes to you know, spreading or implanting Adda and Baba and hatred between the believers. One of his tools is gambling. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this clearly in Salton America. Why drinking when they drink, people drink the might fight with each other and you might end up doing you know, other things. And also backbiting defamation and slander in talking about other people, and here of course, we are talking about the issue of of a slandering, but he doesn't tell you that this is you'll be slandering so and so.
Usually, and this is what some miralem I mentioned like a madman neverwet
He will come and play a game with you. He said, actually, you know, you're not slandering. You are just speaking the truth.
There are some people who when you tell them a BrothER'S gonna stop talking about your own brothers. Stop talking, making raver backbiting, am speaking the truth? What am I? This isn't how can I, this is what happened.
And also let me see if we speak the truth. If he said, if it is true, what you said about your brother is true. This is Reba. This is backbiting and it is a Kabira it's a major sin. But if it is not true, you're making up story like this, you know, story here slandering that it is Bhutan higher level than Riva
Bhutan, as he called it, so here, he won't come because we have seen people will listen to people say, Okay, I'm not mad, I'm not making Riba. I'm not backbiting I'm just saying the truth. Or I'm exposing exposing the corrupted people in the community.
I mean, by exposing the corrupted people in the community could be needed sometimes in the right time in front of a judge in front of a group who are trying to make solid because there is a valid reason for you to talk about these people.
But sometimes we just sit down and have fun watching a movie, or just having together in a gathering together. And we keep talking, talking and we mentioned names. I mean, if we don't mention names, maybe it's not a big problem. But mentioning names. It's a problem.
And sometimes we feel like there was no there is no reason of opening this subject and we do it. We do it Gianni, this is a disease that is well known in the community and it's Allah Salama raffia.
Or some people, they went to higher level, the different levels. They said, I'm defending the dean philosophy kind of attack. These people are corrupted, and I'm defending the dean. But we're not you're not talking to them. You're not making Islam, you're not going to imitate other Imams and telling them, you know, we need your help. This is a problem in the community though. He was just talking to your friends, just having fun and drinking tea together or coffee and just talking. You're not solving any problem. You're not solving anything. I'll give you an example. One time, something happened a very small issue in a Masjid, there was a janazah. And the man did not give
time to the people to pray soon after they right away prayed Jenna's afterthought. So the brother who was very upset, because he prayed and as and then he had to leave and he missed his son now or whatever. So I met him in the parking area. And he was screaming and shouting. And I said, you know why these people don't allow us to pray son. I mean, I told him, this is a small issue, you should be as small as you are. I mean, don't take me wrong. So now as soon as we respect the sooner from us as well. But this is not a matter that you should be you shouldn't be screaming and shouting here in the parking area. You could have just gone to the Imam in a nice way, in a nice manner with good
manners, telling him chair, we need to pressure give us time to pray soon. This is not a big issue. But you Why are you coming here to the parking area, staying in the car and screaming and shouting, talking to other people that is inside the mercy. UK you don't have to go and scream and shout inside the machine. You just go and talk to him in a nice way.
With respect he or she gives us time to pray son, as long as you write the people, you know deal with it in a different way. And this is weird. Yanis panela. So here, the shaitan as I said at the end, he doesn't come to you directly and said I'm inviting you to slander people
to damage do some damage to their honor their dignity in the community to attack the honor No. He will tell you are defending the Dean of philosophy and culture you are saying the truth. He will tell you you are exposing the corrupted people in the community. He will come up with something else.
And it should look it will look fine in your eyes. This is okay. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala would use the word Xen shaitan This is his mission. He said Pattabhi Bhima, who attorney Lu Zhi Mandela who fell out of the water when I was married. This isn't sorted hedger, it really said, My Lord, because you have put me in error. So he's now accusing the last panel with Allah, that it is a Lost Planet, Allah who sent him a stray because you have put me in error. And like Adam and a seller said who is his wife in Surah RF, he said Rob banner vollum fusina. He assumed full responsibility for his mistakes. Adam and Howard after this one, same story, we're talking about the
same story right?
So he said, robina, alumna and fusina, our route, we have wronged ourselves. And if you lived up here in our Hamlet and akuna Minal ha sitting there, if you don't forgive us, and have mercy on us, we will surely be among the losers. So that was the look at the behavior of Adam la Sena. And this is a knowledge that we're missing these days here, one.
This is one of our biggest problems in the Muslim world. If we solve this problem, we go back to the guidance of Adam. And however, we follow the steps the sin of Adam, and how they sell them in this specific matter. making a mistake, don't look for someone else to blame. Even though we know shaitan is the one who invited Adam and Hawa to commit this mistakes, right? This mistake this this sin, we know that shaitan he tried his best, and he was successful at the end. And he committed that sin.
He could have said, Yeah, Allah forgive us. It is him. He's the one who invited us to commit this sin. He's the one who told us to eat from this street. He's the one who told us who gave us the wrong information about the street. No, didn't want to do that. As a man Hello. And this is the first lesson. As human beings we learn in our history. This is the first lesson. There is no lesson before that. Can you think about any other thing that happened before that? We know that the last fella created Adam and Howard, right, the first human beings on earth, nothing interesting happened before that.
This is the first problem that Adam and how we're faced. And then we're after the problem, we assumed full responsibility for their mistakes. Nowadays, here one, this is very common, and I get sick when I hear this. Whenever we talk about your problems, oh, this is what the Americans are doing to us. This is what the Israelis are doing to us. This is what the Shia is doing guys, this was so and so is doing to us, or on an individual level, it was so and so it is our the leadership, the Imams, the Islamic Studies, teachers, the principal, if we're talking about Islamic schools, and you know, trying to find someone to blame.
That was not the behavior of our
grandparents or the maricela um, and how we know from day one the shoulders the way you assume anything you assume full responsibility for anything that happens to you. Yes, we know that there are some other factors. We don't ignore Adam and Howard, he knew that at least he's the one who invited them to do this. But at that moment, he ignored the police. Because that was what was their mistake. They listened to him
because of us antenna told us there is an exception about shaitan here is saying it's a minute because you have put me in error, I will surely make this obedience attractive to them on Earth, it will be attractive. And then I will mislead them all. But the last panel Tyler made an exception.
In the scene, he said those sincere people when you not be able to, to mislead them. So there is an exception. And those people are successful because they didn't listen to shaper. chatter on the Day of Judgment. He said he will tell people I'm not I didn't force you. I didn't force you to follow the path of evil. I didn't force you. I just invited you and you listened to me.
Allah subhanaw taala in different surah said was he and Allah who shape Allah Amana they think that they are doing good was a
facade the harmony sabaidee formula to do and Satan has made the deeds pleasing to them and averted them from his way the way from Las panatela so they are not guided.
So and then in the next I who and about sort of the new Allah subhanaw taala
in the next part, the second part of the I will go through the same area here we're dealing with the same I said yeah, you're Latina amarula who shaitan and then the next part he said Who am I a bit hot water shaper fair in Monroeville fascia, it will move. He said, then whoever follows the footsteps of shaitan Indeed, he enjoys
our command and morality and wrongdoing. So basically the last panel tada you know, saying that shaytan might have his own ways of, you know, inducement and deception
and changing things into your minds, and helping them with different interpretation. I'm doing this I'm not doing this. I'm not disobeying the last panel to add, I'm trying to help the community. I'm trying to help myself. I am exposing the corrupted people in the community. I'm doing this and that. He has his own ways. Now, and he has and he was given the power to win.
Preparing your mind, he has he has been given the power Allah Subhana Allah gave him this power. But you should know you should know that he only invite you. He only this is Allah speculates telling you, he should know that he only invites you to, you know, to immorality and wrongdoing. So don't be deceived by his you know sugar coated
promises. And then the next part the last part Allah said, when I will follow Lucha de Kumara hermeto mesenchyme income in hiding a burden while I can Allah joseki, Manisha will long semi finale. So, this is the end the third part of this ayah 21 in Surah Noor so he said, but if not for the favor of Allah subhanaw taala upon you and his mercy, and not one of you, he said, not one of you would have been pure, or be able to purify himself, not one of you, is what the last Adela saying ever but Allah subhanaw taala purifies whom He wills and Allah spent Allah is heating and knowing. So, this is one this is a two fold message here. There are two important points that are
clarified or emphasized in this ayah two important points. The first point the first message in this ayah is that whoever was able to purify himself,
whoever was able to purify himself through you know, a man and good deeds, this is how we purify ourselves. We believe in Allah subhana wa tada and we perform good deeds Salatu Vicar kurata Quran fasting, we give Zakat This is how you purify yourself. So whoever was able to purify himself, and Masha Allah is a good Muslim, and he's coming to the masjid and he's following the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala, he was only able to make this achievement with the power and the permission of Allah.
This was the last part and I saying this i.
So there is no room, it is meaningless, actually, for a moment to boast about it, or to say also to show some self admiration. There is no room for arrogance here. There should be no room for arrogance, whatever you have achieved in your life as a movement. It was with the power of Allah with the permission of Allah. So therefore, all of us have to humble ourselves before our Creator. Even if you are Mashallah someone who does pmla and you fast every Mondays, and every Monday and every Thursday, and he gives us a path every month. And you are kind to your parents, you are a measure Allah wonderful moment. Right? Don't feel like this is your this is your power. That was
your achievement. It is a rational philosophy. This is what a lot Panasonic is saying in this app.
So you should sympathize with other Muslims shouldn't show any arrogance. Humble yourself, come down and humble yourself before your Creator. And the second message here, those who like to purify themselves. We need to rely on the last panel to Allah make their work good to achieve this wonderful goal of purification.
And this is a second type of technical because there are two types of technical. There are people who make technical to achieve worldly and material gain, make money, get food shelter, which is fine, it's Helen, you need to make the work or place your trust in Allah subhanaw taala to achieve anything to earn anything, it's fine. But the owner met he said there is another type of token it is the token of the prophets and messengers. It is that they were kind of the the people who are concerned with the well being of the people who are dealing with the public affairs of the ummah. And what is this tower called the make tawakkol and last pinata to achieve these goals to reform
make some reforms, help the community help the Ummah worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala so they are there to work with is related to what is regarding their affairs, their target or their their ultimate goal is to go to Jenna. So they're not thinking about this dunya even though they needed to they are human beings right? They need food like everyone they need transportation they need shelter like everyone, but they place their trust in Allah subhanaw taala more into affairs that are related to their adherence to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala how to you know support the deen philosophy and how to establish the deen philosophy Rotana iqama to do so they are their minds are
always busy with this with this matters how to you know help the community how to support the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. So the Buddha said this is the best type of token enable Allah Allah was making no comparison between these two types of
token and he said this is the best type of token. So when it comes to purification, purifying yourself if you also make token on Allah subhanaw taala through your applications, humble yourself and ask for his help to help you metalfest the month of Ramadan to help you do pmla to help you wake up from selected budget to help you recite Quran to help you memorize the Quran, you should always go back to Allah to Allah subhanaw taala asking for help regarding this, this matters. And then in the next ayah Allah subhanaw taala said, well I Terry Oulu fogli minco masa,
and YouTube corba one Misaki in Omaha Shireen ifisa barilla Well, Yahoo warriors for who Allah to hit buena Ania para la Hola, como por la Hooray. This is great.
In this in this story, and Allah subhanaw taala is talking here about the story of Abu Booker and his cousin, Mr. Hubner.
I told you about his story in the first session in the second session, Mr. Luthor was related to Abu Bakar through through his maternal aunt.
So his grandmother, Mr. grandmother was the aunt of a goober Casa de la Juana. And he was supporting him he was giving him financial aid on a regular basis. But this man became weak. I mean, he's a human being, and he made a mistake. We know that he made Toba about it. There are many said all the three Muslims who are involved in this incident has sided with habit. Mr. have numerous Mr. Abdul Fattah and Hammond of introjection of the Allah and he was right all of them may tober. And hopefully last rattle accepted their Toba and this is a dirty in here. This is a proof that Alice rattle accepted the October. So what does the ISS here illustrated by saying this and let not those
who virtue among you and wealth, he's talking about abubaker Let not those who virtue oldfather those who are known for their sidecar for their they have a good status good reputation in the community. Of course, this is a general statement. But he means here abubaker older owner they said a lot meant here abubaker and wealth. Walker was wealthy he was a merchant. He said to swear not to give aid. So who made this oath, who vowed not to aid his his cousin. It is a worker after Mustafa was involved in this, you know, spreading that slandering in the slandering. So he said one line and factor will be nothing ever done. He said by Allah, I will never never give him any anything. He
says I will never I will not help him with anything. This this statement, the oath or the you know that that our worker made? I mean, it's normal, right? He talks about he attacked the honor of his own his own daughter
and the owner of his best friend Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So it's normal for Abu Bakar to make this reaction, right, he says, Well, I am not giving you I'm not I will never help him with anything. And then last Friday, saying here, let not those who virtue among you and love swear not to give aid to the relatives. So he's now mentioning three qualities of Mr. relatives and the needy. He's one of the needy, he needs help. And the immigrants for the sake of Allah
is talking about mistakes that he made migration for the sake of Allah He made his euro for the sake of Allah is someone who made his euro he moved from Mecca to Medina and Allah is testing for a certifying that he made it for the sake of Allah. This is a great testimony for Mr. coming from Allah because this statement is coming from Allah is not coming from someone else.
And we know that Isha also said something important about him, that he participated in the murder, and the people who were highly respected in the community at that time. So Allah subhanaw taala is saying, will ya who will? Yes, Pharaoh, he said, and let them part in an overlook,
inviting aboubaker to pardon his cousin, and forgive him. Would you not like that the law should forgive you? And I took a boon and young Pharaoh Allahu Allah.
And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. So when he said, he said when I will walk or hurt this, Allah to a boon and your fear Allahu la koo, we do not like that Allah we do not like that Allah should forgive you. And then what did he say? I studied for the Allahu anhu he said Bella Bella in hibou Yara Bella interferon. That was the reaction of acidic rhodiola when he said indeed By Allah, we love or our road that you forgive us.
That was a reaction of a woodworker. And then what did he say? Well, law he, Archer Allah who
saw the car he started spending upon him again said giving him money. And he said, Well, Laila and zero have been whoever, then Allahu Akbar. He said, Well, Laila and zero by Allah, I will never stop giving him this eight, after the last letter revealed this ayah. So he was someone who's, who was going through some painful experience, it's very painful. When someone talks, talks about, you know, you know, the honor of your daughter, accuses your daughter with without any valid without any proof. Right? This is, Your Honor, the honor of your daughter is the honor of your family. This is, Your Honor, it's very painful, and it is more painful when it comes from a family member. And it is
more painful when it comes from someone who used to help him and give him money all the time and supporting him more painful, right? And then he Walker is becoming a different person, after he says I will never give him anything, I will never help him with anything. Here. He's saying what law 11 zero, but I will never buy a law, I will never stop giving him this aid. So the earlier they said, this is a striking example of forgiveness. This is a wonderful, you know, example of forgiveness from a co worker, so deep or the alojado. And here, one in this ayah beside, you know the generosity of aboubaker before his kindness or the Allahu anhu. Before all the lessons they are the lessons
that we learn very something, there is an excellent lesson that we all should learn. And this is the purpose of this program is to look into these lessons and learn from them and try to rectify our family affairs,
rectify our communal affairs and work out our relationships with a relationship with a family member, or with a neighbor or with a friend in the community or community member who comes to the masjid. This is something really important here we'll go back to the air. Where did Allah subhanaw taala say about Mr. He knows Allah knows that Mr. was involved in a grave mistake in a very serious matter.
And there is a punishment, very serious punishment about it flogging of he lashes, you know, on the back of the one who does it is not something easy. But yet, I must say, No, you have some good reasons telling. You have some good reasons for you not to stop giving your financial aid to your cousin, or extending your help to him. There are some good reasons. The He is someone who is related to you, is your cousin.
And he is someone who is in need is a needy person. And the third thing He is someone who made a great act of worship, which is the hedger of feasibility lab. So you should look, you know, Allah subhanaw taala is inviting our worker to focus on the positive side of this person.
There are good reasons for you to keep giving him your SATA card or
you know, giving him your financial aid.
So forget about his mistake, forget about his sin, Allah Subhana Allah has forgiven him. And then look at these good reasons for you to keep giving him for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah. So Allah, Allah is telling us is teaching us through the story of abubaker that when we deal with our family members, when we deal with our friends, we have to have a balance.
We have to have a balance. And then the problem is, this is a disease. This is this is a disease that we this is something that it's it's a it's a bigger problem in our community. People they overreact, overreact, husband and wife didn't have a good relationship because they overreact to everything.
They overreact, they don't have patience, and they don't look the mess and they forget about all the good things that the other person has. Nothing he can make one mistake, or she can make one mistake and then that's it. The whole relationship is ruined. And this is not right. This is not fair. lovington is inviting here to make justice Adela. Anyway, if you have a husband, a sister, mother, if she has a husband who prays and who spends on his family, and he's a good person, he doesn't smoke. He doesn't drink alcohol. He's taking care of his family, but he has some shortcomings. So why do you focus on the shortcomings and forget about all the good things that he has? This what we
are doing nowadays?
It's like method and your child.
My child will like this example.
Your child coming to you said method
But dad or mom, I got 90% today in my test, and he tell him what happened to the other 10%.
I mean, come on, he got 90% celebrate the green light here, one.
So this is what the last hotel This is what the last hotel is saying here. Whenever you have a relationship or some difficulty in this relationship,
you have to be fair and make the right assessment. This person in front of me is my cousin, she's my wife is my husband is my child is my father. Sometimes you have problems with our parents, you cannot exchange your parents. You cannot. You can divorce your wife and get another wife, but you cannot divorce your parents. You can't. Your parents are your parents. So Allah subhanaw taala is telling you, you have to treat them with kindness, even if they are not Muslims, even if they are inviting you to commit,
even if they invite you to disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah Subhana Allah said in the Quran, do not listen to them, do not obey them, were Sahaba who Macedonia. Moreover, treat them in this dunya with kindness, even if they invite you to disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala
you need it because they are your parents. Same thing with your children, you cannot exchange them, your children or your children, your sisters, your brothers, your family members. So, you have to look into this, this methodology that the last hunt Allah is establishing here, through these stories, whenever you deal with another person, another Muslim with a family member or not, you have to look into these things, make sure that I make a balance, justice, you know, this person is good method and in in Muslim organizations, we have people in Muslim organizations who keep fighting all the time.
And everyone knows that the the board members are fighting all the time, the Everyone knows that they are not taking care of the message. Everyone knows that they are not properly managing the message or the Muslim organization. And I mean, these people, if we, if we follow this guidance, many problems will be will be solved. So first of all, they don't expect the person who come to the board to be perfect. He's a human being.
He's a human being. He has his own his own shortcomings. And he might have some positive things right to bring to the to the table. So we need to, you know, focus on the positive side all the time. give people the benefit of the doubt, be patient don't react, because so much as Elon was going through a lot in this story here. What and he never overreacted. He was very, extremely patient for 27 days. He didn't tell he didn't talk. talk too much about it for 27 days who would do that?
Who would do that? A husband would hear the people outside. They're talking about his wife. And for 27 days, because she was sick. The saying you know at home, she was sick. He didn't want to add insult to injury. And he salatu salam for 27 days. He didn't open the subject to her he didn't talk about it at all. She found out through him
through whom He attended the first halaqa
Yeah, the mother feels that she found out from the through the mother of Mr. and mother of Mr. No the story she went outside with her. They were at night to relieve themselves coming back. Something happened in that she made to do against her son and she was shocked Alisha, why are you making it against your own son who attended bother and participated in burgeron is a mohajir feasibility law. So giving you know the benefit of doubt talking about the positive things of your people they call good qualities. And then she found out at that time 27 days and I as I told you it was a Rama from Allah subhanho wa Taala spotted a cheetah Dasha with Rama with mercy. She was a young girl at that
time. If she knew had she known from day one, it would have been very difficult extremely difficult for her to handle this matter because Allah subhanaw taala decreed that this matter will stay without any solution for one month for one month rasuluh license lm went through this for a complete month.
So this is how we treat our friends and our family members here. One you always look at the positive side and try to celebrate the green light try to appreciate show your appreciation. Unfortunately, as I told you there are many people who don't have this mentality. They always look at negative things if there is one page white page, complete page that is white and there is a black spot. On this page. They focus on the black spots and they see everything as dark. They forget about the the whiteness surrounding this. This black spot. We forget about all the white color
Surrounding the and the focus on this and they make a big deal of it. And then they asked for divorce or the divorce their wives or no or they end up into you know big problems with Allah Silla mafia type.
There is another another act of forgiveness
that came from Ashura the alojado I would like to mention this because even atisha forgave, someone else has said it, who was involved in the same problem has sent him to sabotage the Allahu anhu. The Sahaba used to go and ask for photos after so let's say someone passed away behind the barrier. She has her own room, and there was a sitar curtain. She would spend time in her room and the Sahaba would come and ask for photographers because she was a scholar. She was a female scholar, great scholar of the Allah I know.
She was actually a great scholar, she used to correct some other scholars in the community of the Sahaba of the olana. So she was knowledgeable, very knowledgeable, and the Sahaba used to come and ask for her opinion. But the Allahu Ana, she lived after
a long period of time. So he has said sometimes used to come inside and asked for her opinion regarding some issues or ask her about for some fatalis. So one of the her family members, I think her nephew, came one time and he found his son there and he said, Why are you allowing this man? Why are you allowing this man to enter your house?
And what did she say? I showed the love on her. She said he said a beautiful poetry defending the honor of Russell SSL. Whenever I remember that poetry, I hope that Hassan will be engender, that Allah will reward him with john, Luke about all what he did.
She's forgiving him. She's looking at it. She's looking into another positive side of this man, that yes, he may have committed this mistake. But he did something good. He was defending Rasulullah sallallahu with his poetry, and she would recite the poetry in which he said
there was a poet from Makkah, who attacked us all lies I sell him so I said was habit one while defending as soon as I sell him he said has yota rasulillah shipped to an who were in the life either culture has Jota rasulillah he was stellar who because in for sure. ruku. Molly Heinrich Amalfi do and then he said, has yota has Jota burn Mubarak and burn hanifin Ameen la he she met to Hulu fo firma yes your rasulillah he minko why I'm there who answer who said well, then he said for in our leader who are everything, the only Mohammed the minko with Lisa Annie sorry, moolah, I Buffy were barilla to cuddle with dilla. He says at the end of this piece of poetry, he said my father and
his father and my honor or he said May my father and his father and my honor be ransom for the sake of protecting the honor of Mohammed Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He said whenever I recite this poetry, I hope that has said he will be in genda because he used to defend the honor for a solo lies on the lower eleison.
So number one as a as a conclusion here.
Allah subhanho wa Taala in this ayah is inviting the believers to be patient and we know this, the fruits of patients are always sweet. So lasagna was very patient. He didn't scream at Arusha. He didn't shout at her. He didn't accuse her sallallahu wasallam Abubakar did the same thing. He did not accuse Russia there was no proof. He did not. He didn't even blame her for going back to looking looking for that necklace. You know because the problem was about that necklace when she went looking for that necklace. And she came back and she found that the coffee that the caravan or the army has left. That was the beginning that story. They even did not blame her for going back and
looking for that inner necklace. They could have said the necklace was very cheap. Why did you decide and go looking for this necklace? They didn't they didn't talk about it. What happened happened handler This is federal law surgeon and also Allah subhana wa tada invited them to make it said and this is what they did Excel, kindness and generosity and forgiveness. And Sonia one here is to make that extra step for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala to maintain this relationship between you and another believer, or between a family member or between a friend and neighbor. This is a sense
What it is here in this in this context, sentence in general, it is to worship Allah subhana wa Taala as if you see him, but if you don't see him, then you should know that Allah Allah sees you. And that Buddha luck and Nikita this definition of a person in Hadith gibreel Allah, but in this context, in the context of family matters in the context of community
matters in the context of human relationships. And doing good is to forgive, to be kind, overlook, forget about mistakes, and focus on the positive side, when you make that extra step, be generous, be kind, for the sake of Allah subhana wa tan. The problem is when you look at the other person, and you expect him to do this first, then you will never do so.
This is our problem. Nowadays, the wife would expect the Father, the husband to change, and the husband is expecting the wife to change. And both of them are waiting for each other. And the problem will never be solved.
You see what I'm saying here, and it becomes like a cycle. If he makes a mistake, and the blame will come. They start talking to each other, blaming each other. And then it become like the cycle is this to me. And I did this to him. I asked I I made a mistake, but it was first is his fault. I made this mistake, but because you did this, and because you talked to me this way because you treated me with attitude. And it's a cycle that will never be broken. How to break the cycle to make yourself forgive and make that extra step. And then you will earn or you when I said when her heart or you will win his heart.
You'll be let into Fusarium and aksana. Anya, there is a saying that says this is how Allah Allah created us. We are created we are made to love those who make sense to us. It's our nature. You cannot have someone coming to you every day, asking about you trying to help you giving money giving you money whenever you need at helping you in any way or shape. And then you hate him. You cannot hate him. Can you hate this person? It's impossible. I mean, there are some exceptions maybe. But these are not the rule. Every rule has an exception. But as human beings, this is how we are made. We love those who make it to us. So we keep making it sent to your wife. She will love you. She will
stop nagging she will stop you know complaining. You know and the same thing when it comes to that's why I lost my dad I said you know and so not only am Ron welcome him mean and how you will have a nanny nurse will know who your Hippo and masini those who restrain their anger and part of the people.
Allah tala is talking about Seaforth and mazzini here, if you want to be one of them, will have a nanny nurse will call the mean and neither one of us those who stay in anger, pardon and forgive the mistakes of other people. And Allah loves the doers of good, the doers of good they may I don't feel comfortable with this translation. And it's good if you keep it the people have accent or those who do accent because the sun is a powerful word in our Deen in our religion. Sn is that it's something that is extra beyond what is required.
You do that extra step for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada for the sake of helping saving your marriage or saving your family or saving the relationship. This is what I will walk you today in this in this is for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and that's why he was called to Jessa como lo hiren Baraka lo fi COMM And we'll continue or halakhah next week, inshallah
