So I have a lot of thoughts on that. Also, you know that
nobody will study down and just sitting back kind of hooking
up alongside the other Have you been able to be in school mode it was put on by the coppers economic model put them off and then they go off. Opposite toss planets out and we thank Him and praise Him. And shall we'll continue our sessions and illuminations Quranic reflections from helming today inshallah the Imam is reciting the fourth Surah of the Quran surah nisa. And it's very interesting that after some teaches us how to establish our faith, and how to
bring about a sense of steadfastness and what are the descriptions of what brings about steadfastness Allah subhanaw taala then speaks about a chapter called reset almost as if speaking about part of the establishment of faith is to fulfill rights. And among those who of course, whose rights are
tread upon the most is women, and those who deserve the most in terms of attention to fulfilling their rights as women because the Prophet Muhammad symbolizes that it says, The best of you are those were the best two women and I'm the best to my women. And this is from the example of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam in establishing these rights that he, in essence, gave all of what Islam calls to, in the sense of
calling to faith and calling to
making sure that faith is not just something that we believe to be monastic, that we are a faith that only believes,
to worship Allah is planted in the masjid, and then you don't fulfill other people's rights. But rather, it's a faith that part of the fulfillment of the right of Allah azza wa jal is that you fulfill the rights of people. And that's why the prophets that humans Hadith, he says that your body has a right on you, and
your family has a right on you. In essence, people also have a right on you, for out equally the heart. So give everyone their due, right. And this teaches us how much of our faith calls to that. So the entirety of sort of times, is about fulfilling rights. And Japan was called the chapter of women you don't see a chapter called The chapter of men. And again, partly to do with that is that how many women's rights are
taken away, and also in that particular society, and in human history, in general, how much of women's rights were taken, in fact, women are not allowed even to inherit, in this society in Mecca. So there was a huge call towards reform of the different rights that
is deserved, is deserving of or given to women, and hence why the entire show is also within the set. And part of that is
Allah Subhan, Allah says,
in the sewer, that
part of earning the Mercy of Allah subhana Tallis to give the rights to others.
So in this in the first portion of the entire solo, it's all talking about how we fulfill the rights of people.
And, and part of that is to establish
fairness, and responsibility between spouses, and what happens if they disagree, and how's
marital discord settled, for example, all of these forms of establishing rites is extremely important, because when people don't establish the rights of others, usually they won't establish their own rights or the rights of other people, and especially for those people who are closest to them. So this teaches us how much of establishing the rights of others is important. If you want to earn the Mercy of Allah, how much does it make sense that people dedicate so much of their time praying and fasting and trying to make dua and crying and then they don't establish the rights of people? What sense does that make? What sense does it make that a person rise to Allah subhanaw
taala, but they're
making other people dislike them and hate them because of their behavior. So this surah teaches us that in order to earn the Mercy of Allah, Samantha, we must fulfill the rights of others more than anything. And that's why the last part that it says in the Surah, fulfill the rights fulfill people's rights. And the last part then speaks about the rights, the levels of rights, the rights of family starting, and then the latter portion of the surah speaks about the rights of society. So it starts off with those closest to you. Okay, so, those closest to you are the most people are the most important people that you should establish
the rights of, and
it is part of what Islam teaches us in essence, that you cannot function as a Muslim, except that you know, that
rectification of the self is shown by being the best to those who are the nearest to you. And that's why there's an Arabic proverb that Accra guna Ola be myself those who are the closest to you are the most deserving of your character.
So with that, in Shall I hope that sort of thing is when you when you listen to it, and you hear about all of the ways that Allah asks for us to reflect on earning his mercy among them that Allah Subhana Allah says Toba or for those who do actions with ignorance, so the Sahaba asked inimitable to that in Yama, Luna Sobey, Johanna, right? And Sahaba they asked the Prophet Muhammad wa salam, O Messenger of Allah, how can any one of us commit sin, and they're ignorant of an art we willingly knowing, we committing sin, and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and even our best mentioned that
anyone who commits sin is ignorant of the one that they're committing a sin against. So in essence, it becomes ignorant of the status of a loss of data, and hence why they're committing that particular sin. So part of that is when you don't know that you're accountable to Allah subhanaw taala. When you don't know you're accountable to Allah, then you will transgress against the rights of others, you will always victimize yourself, you always justify your own actions, rather than thinking, Hey, what are the things that I need to work on in order to fix my relationship and how I deal with others? And that's what sort of thing this that kind of reminds us of that we shouldn't
always look at, hey, what are other people doing wrong? And how am I how do I need to establish my own rights and etc, when you yourself may not be establishing the rights of others. So again, to earn the Mercy of Allah, we must fulfill the rights of others. So hopefully this has been
