Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa sallam albaraka ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine even Illa Today we will be going over the 28th juice. And we will look at three stories or three places in the US where Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned certain stories or he speaks about the virtue of sex.
Why Lake Como Salah la
alikum de la well how's everything Alhamdulillah all while like we hope everybody was following our world well, Mashallah these people who we've been seeing their names from the very beginning of Ramadan, and I think we've memorized them Masha Allah May Allah bless you and may Allah bless all the others who may or may not know,
Chef today, the 28 juice is roughly three places of free if we want to touch on the first is or the first surah and the 28th use known as surah to moja della also also referred mogera dilla, depending on the way you look at it. Allah subhanho wa Taala basically mentioned the story of a woman who came to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam, mentioning what had occurred in her house between her and her husband, and then she wasn't sure what she divorced, what happened. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this story and this incident, he says condescending Allahu Colletti to God, look at these LG. In the last panel, which has heard the one with a lady who's come to your
messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned her name was Hola, salah and she came she's come to ask you. And you know, if there's a back and forth, you're speaking she's telling you something and you're telling her back about a an incident. What incident was this? Basically, her husband had done what's called of rehab, we have his way a person describes their wife, as you know, similar to somebody who is a mom and basically saying that you are no longer permissible for me. So you are like the back of my mother or the back of my sister, for example. And this would in turn mean that this man is likening his wife to somebody who he is not allowed to get married to. So she thought
that she might have been divorced, what's the ruling here? So Allah subhanho wa Taala says that most definitely he has heard this conversation. And he then speaks about the rulings regarding rehab. I think an important point to touch on here. When it comes to rehab when it comes to you know tala can divorce, sometimes a lot of people are quick to go into certain things and push them quickly. And after that, they then want to go and ask a scholar or they then want to go and ask somebody of knowledge, hoping and praying that there's some sort of loophole so they can come out, or you know, they can be saved, especially if it's to do with something like divorce. So I think we learn from
this that you know, the story as a whole Yes, at that time, there was what he there was revelation, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received the ruling straight from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now as the deen is complete, and everything is there, you may not know the ruling. But you may say something which may Allah save us, but you may be separated from your spouse for a very long time. So I think we should be careful, especially with the words we choose. Sometimes you get upset, you get angry, you know, just hold it in, or don't say something that's going to cause a big problem, maybe address the issue after a little while.
That's so true. You know that that's a very interesting point. Because this person had actually done something. And then you know, some kind of like his wife went and found off the ruling later on etc. And what I find amazing is that Allah subhanho wa Taala responded to this. And he said, concerning our love of coal and let it to God, look at the zoji that Allah heard the argument or the, you know, the complaint of she who was complaining regarding her husband or her spouse, or the one who was complaining regarding a husband and spouse. Now I actually heard the Allah and says that she was in the room at the time when this complainant came to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And she
says, I was I was in a place where I couldn't really hear the conversation that was going on between her and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, yet Allah subhanho wa Taala from above the seven heavens responded to this now
One that points to the power of the qualities of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You know, he heard, even though I shall be Allah and her couldn't hear she was in the same room, yet he from above the seven heavens responded. That's number one. Number two is that
you see she was oppressed here. So Allah subhanho wa Taala responded from above the seven heavens. And this is something that we can all take away from this that Allah subhana wa tada hears the call of the oppressed person. So we should never oppress another human being, we should never, you know,
commit an injustice against them because definitely Allah subhanho wa Taala hears the calls. And when they call out the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, What 30 that will tell him well below me, but nevertheless and beating the hell being unlucky is you have and be careful of the do are the oppressed person, or indeed there is no barrier between them and Allah subhanho wa Taala. So I think the what I take away from this is that Allah subhanho wa Taala responds to those who are oppressed, and we should be very careful of oppressing a person we don't know what type of dua it might make against us, that will actually affect our lives.
You know, as you mentioned, and all these stories we mentioned, ultimately, it's for a person. Yes, story is nice. It's good to know. But ultimately, it's so you become attached to our last panel, whatever you realize what and understand who he is, what he's ordered you to do, his names, his qualities, his attributes, etc. As you mentioned, I shuffle the alarm on her says she has self was close by, but she couldn't even hear the last panel which I love from above the seven heavens, he he has everything. And he then reveals versus speaking about this ruling, moving on Shoshana, not really speaking about a particular story. But we find the last panel who speaks about the Sahaba the
companions called the loved one in one of the soldiers that comes after.
What's important to mention is when it comes to the Sahaba there's a few principles that we have to hold tight to when it comes to belief in who the Sahaba were what they did. We believe that they were the best of people the best of creation after the MBR Allahu Salatu was Salam after the messengers, and we find that they are those from amongst them who are at the highest or the best of companions, for example, Abubakar suited for their loved one after that.
One. So as Muslims, we believe that the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu we believe in all of them being companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as individuals, it is possible for them, you know, to make a mistake for medicine etc. It is possible but as a whole we are talking about, especially when it comes to the deal. They themselves they, you know, they conveyed the message they didn't deceive Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam later on. Also, Allah subhanho wa Jalla makes mention of this. He says he speaks about como hijo, those who came from Makkah, and he praises them even speaks about those who they went to the answer. Those who are in Medina, again to also have an
old companion some coming from Makkah, some in Medina, others from elsewhere, even speaks about how we are supposed to deal with the topic of the Sahaba he says one lady ninja will embody him, those who come after, what do they say? Do they speak bad about the Sahaba? Do they say this or that? No. They make dua for them and they only speak goodness about the Sahaba akula banoffee relena Allah forgive us well, if learning and Medina Salah Puna, Bill Eman and those who came before us, they preceded us when it came to even while it Chalfie lovina de Lille, Medina. Amen. You know, don't give us any don't put in our heart any hatred or envy towards those who have believed and the very
first who believed or the Sahaba or the Allah and then hot burner in Mecca, or over Rahim Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who, you know, he's merciful, he forgives him, etc. So anytime you find, especially when it comes to the Sahaba, especially after the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed on, you find that especially also in the books of history, there's a lot of things that have been mentioned, which at times are not accurate in terms of the story. And even if some things were accurate, as Muslims we know that the Sahaba, viola Juan, they were much the hidden basically, is sometimes they had their opinions and if they defend what we believe even in left that
yes, they tried their best, they went according to the Quran and Sunnah. And they are between two rewards and one reward. So as for those who tried their best, and they reached the correct answer, they have two rewards. So those who tried their best and may have made a mistake, we still have
Good fourth of them, and we say they have one reward. It's not for us to speak bad about. So how about their loved one? And you find that everybody who's come to this or who start speaking bad about this, how about their loved one? It's because there's a bigger picture or a bigger goal they want, if the messenger sallallahu wasallam came with a religion, so how about Allah who then took from him and transmitted this to us, if you are able to cause doubt, and speak bad about those who held the message, after that the message itself false. So the message itself, you would say that you know what, there was something wrong with this one and this one and this one, and this one and this
one, eventually get to a stage where you say that you know what, the message itself is something wrong with it. So as Muslims and we believe that also have all the love and you know, the old companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, Allah, Allah says, We're cool, and what a lovely person, a lot of love. Allah has promised all of them, you know, personnel, which is Jana, and that is our belief, we say, I'll be a loved one when it comes to all those who have all the time.
But only a loved one 100% you know, the deen definitely was transmitted by them. And it said that, you know, these people who speak bad about the companions of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam. They wanted to speak bad about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam himself, but they couldn't, because they knew he was too perfect to say something evil about him. So they chose those whom he loved and those who are close to him. And then they spoke bad about him and and bad about them until, like you said, they can now distort the message of Islam, and they can change an ad and chop and change. So we believe that the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam are the
best of people after the after the MBR ra hemos. Salatu was Salam like you rightfully mentioned. So I find it interesting that you know, because they couldn't attack him sallallahu alayhi wasallam they attacked those around him and tried to bring him down. May Allah Subhana Allah have mercy upon the companions and May Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased with him. This is the dua that we always read, after we say the names or the loved one, a lot of kind of what Allah May he be pleased with them? So definitely, this is something that I think, you know, most Muslim men do believe in the virtue of the companions or the loved one. Here Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, soon Allah wa
Sula and they help Allah some kind of word Allah and His Messenger, Allah, he can almost saw the moon. Those are the truthful ones. So
I wanted to focus on this part of the verse because what does truth have to do with what the companions were doing? And as you know, sometimes someone might say that has to do with speech, etc. But there's a different type of truthfulness that is there and that is the truthfulness between you and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, your honesty within your straightforwardness within your heart, you know, turning to him and opening up your entire life to Him, just being honest in your relationship with him. This is something that sometimes we don't really consider when when talking about truthfulness, or you know, honesty. So I think truthfulness with Allah subhanho wa Taala and
being genuine in your relationship with him, you know, when you have a good friend, so to speak, and Allah Subhana Allah definitely has the highest of examples. But to bring it closer to our minds when you have a good friend and you have relationship with them, and you are honest and loyal. With that person, when you've wronged that person, you go to them, honestly, hey, I've wronged you. This is what's happened. This is how it is and you move on from there. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala has the highest of examples, but when we've wronged him on we've disobeyed him, then we turned to him. We honest with him. Yeah, Allah. I've done something wrong here. As far as I'm sure I may be wrong.
bhulekh have been aromatic either. Yeah, we're a movie that I turned to you, I returned to you with the net amount that you have bestowed upon me. And I returned to you with the sense that I have meaning I'm not hiding anything. Yeah, like, I can't hide anything from you. But yeah, I am. This is who I am. I'm an open book, open page. Allah forgive me. And this is known as a realistic person recited in the morning, and they pass away as far as I'm sure that's what the Hadees is, then they will be forgiven. And if before the evening and they recited in the evening and they pass away before the morning then they will be forgiven. So
this is something that we can really, you know, benefit from. In this way. We are truthful with a lot of
this ultimately and as you
mentioned save the list of file and where you mentioned a while ago we didn't medica earlier, basically, exactly as you said it is that we're not hiding anything. Basically we acknowledge all the neom and volunteers that our last panel which Allah has given us, we also acknowledge the fact that we've made a mistake. we've committed sin and we ask Allah to give us moving on we get to Sora to Tyrion, was interesting. In lisu, Allah Subhana Allah mentions a few of the wives in speaks about the wives of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he speaks about the wife or the wife of know Halle Salaam, the life of low palate, Salah, and then the wife of Iran, and lastly, he speaks about
mangium la Salah in the surah basically, it's mentioned that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he visited some of his wives because you know he was married more than once the competition between the wives etc. So they didn't want him as mentioned in some of the books of some of the wives didn't want him to eat honey from the other wife's house. So they then told him when he said that you know what, your mom has a different smell to it eventually took an oath not to eat honey at otherwise house so Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying yeah, you know, your limit to have the moment I handle Allah, like all messages Allah, Allah, why are you making something haram upon yourself,
which was halal and permissible for you typically Matata as logic? Is it because you want you know, the happiness you want your wives to be happy with you? Allah subhanho wa Taala Lin speaks about the whole incident with someone maybe you elaborate as well as he did when there was a talk in private between the beat and you know, his wives and Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions mentions what occurred, the story in itself, we find that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam, even who he was Allah subhanho wa Taala. If he made a mistake, he still corrected his mistake. And I think this can show us that definitely Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't make up the Quran because
there are verses in the Quran more than one way or less panel which Allah tells him that, you know, you made a mistake here when you did this, which you shouldn't have done you should have done it this way. So I think that in itself is a miracle to show the plan is the word of Allah Subhana. Allah came from him directly. Now the interesting point after that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned some of the other wives reprimanding the wives of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells them you know, if you carry on, you become a burden when it comes to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam then Allah can bring others in your place people better than you wives and give the
messenger etc. He then speaks about the wives of, again, two messengers to Zambia, who disbelieved? No Allah, his Salah Luke, Allah is Salah, they themselves believe that their wives they refused to believe and they help those who are disobeying and going against the messages, even speaks about a woman who is in the house of a tyrant surrounded by one of the worst people to have lived in the history of you know, the history of the time, is the same person who said hon Komal Allah I am your Lord the hi but Allah subhana wa Jalla mentions from this house there was a believing woman who came and Allah goes on to mention her in local and so I think what we can we can take a few things from
this number one is your spouse or your family member, whoever they may be, they may be somebody good or even pious, but that doesn't necessarily mean you reach their level here wives of mBiA in salat wa salam refused to believe and they, you know, they rejected at the same time, you could be in the worst of environments, you could be with the worst of people. We're not encouraging you to have bad company and to stick with that people know, you try and avoid that. But if you are, it doesn't mean it's impossible to believe it doesn't mean it's impossible to do good deeds, it doesn't mean it's impossible for you to achieve. You know, so many times so many times people think that they are
confined to those who they are, you know, I'm living in such and such a place I have this environment. I can't do any good deeds, yes, it plays a part. But ultimately be even in law. If you are truthful with Allah subhanho wa jal, you will be able to overcome that the wife of Iran is an example.
Yes, absolutely. A house is gonna talk about the same points of kadala way.
100% your circumstance and environment shouldn't be an excuse for you not to change or to become to become like your environment. If even if you are in a bad environment, you can actually change things around. Yes, it is much harder, but that shouldn't be an excuse for you.
Look at this wife of the round, and how she made a nearly Endeca bait and filled agenda on my own. build me a home with you in general. So this is something that is amazing, you know, the fact that she's in the house of drought, and she's calling out to Allah subhanho wa Taala to build a home for her in general. Imagine she was in the lush gardens and in the palace and everything that was the, it's available, she had no, you know, reason, besides a connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala to turn to Him. And obviously she must have heard the DA of all the data of Musa alayhis salatu salam, when he came calling around who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala, etc. So the fact that she heard
this that way, and she believed in it, and circumstance and situation didn't stop her from going to Allah subhanho wa Taala turning to him, I think that that gives a lot of hope to reverts and people who are in homes that are non Muslims, you know, they are surrounded by non Muslims. It gives them a lot of hope that you know, this was a woman who became a was ultimately mentioned in the Quran. Eventually, centuries later, this is the type of father and honor that she had. So this is something that they can derive strength from that regardless of whom we you know, who is around you and how they're behaving and how they're maltreating you etc. It doesn't matter. Allah Subhana Allah is with
you, Allah subhana wa LSL. And victories ultimately success is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you're submitting to him. So that is from him. And I think that's something that they can really learn from us and ultimately you will be tested in another verse, Allah Subhana, Allah says, has he been NASA youtrack Apollo airman now homelife down to the people think that they will be left, if they've just said, you know, we believe a man, they really think that it's just going to be like that without having a test. And the difficulty and the trial even speaks about how the people who came before they had their trials and tests and things were also difficult. So not all the time. But
a lot of the times you find that especially somebody, you know, they want to change their life, they want to become a Muslim, you hear so many stories of people who lost everything will lift everything. This was from the time of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. One example was Romania, or the Allahu anhu. He was one of the, you know, wealthiest of people in Makkah, his parents used to give him his mother used to give him a lot. The minute he accepted Islam, then everything changed so much. So when it was time to bury him one of the richest of the time, they couldn't find a garment which could cover him fully. If they covered him from the bottom, his head
would show and if they covered him from the top, then he's he's the site from his feet would show. So this was the Sahaba Viola. And again, something very interesting you can do is read about these people. Whether it's the MBR Allah him Salatu was Salam followed by the Sahaba of the Allahu Allahu pious people you find when you read these biographies, you're able to detach yourself from the society you are in. And this is not only for new Muslims, this is for any Muslim or any person in general. You want to detach yourself from society, the difficulties the hardship, you see around you try and you know, read something of benefit read from the from the stories of the Quran, biographies
of the ambia, the Sahaba, viola, the pious people, and you will find that you you're able to come out of that environment and relate to what is going on.
Absolutely. And that's the reason why we have these stories with us was to benefit from and tasteless.
This were called an echo soiree coming under it also a man of happy to be here for Eric as our last panel with Alice selling the messages for the mother and he was among all the stories we reveal to you inform to you about the MBA, etc. It's so you know, we can keep you firm and we can keep you on the truth it helps your heart to remain steadfast.
Yes, can we address a question that someone's asked about a little bit away from amongst the Sahaba? Or do they have a different level or status
also have another level and amongst themselves, as we know, as mentioned by the Sahaba of the Levant themselves, they would say that when it came to the Sahaba, we knew that Abu Bakr Siddiq or their loved one who was the best after that Roman robiola one when they say we used to talk about that, thereafter,
after that, after we used to, we never used to do that we some mentioned after that reflect what the language is.
You know later on, let's start with the Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu Allah Allah Allah. Allah, Allah. Allah.
Rasool Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advises the people when it came to debate. He told them to be good to his family members, those who followed those who are from his family, and they believed, and they believed.
What when it comes to debate, we neither of us have an MBA in general, it's a rule take it as a rule, we don't give people more than they deserve. Right? So we never ever say that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself, reached lordship, where he called people to worship Him. So we worship him now, in the same way when it comes to, you know, the family of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Yes, they have a father and those who believed they have fathers, they have a virtue, but we don't go over the limits. And also we are not like those who cut them to say no, they were like nothing in the middle as the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam mentioned that they have
their father and he told us to be good to them, same as the other. So how about the alumni, and same with the Sahaba in general, as a whole, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Let the soup was happy, don't sweat, these people are so happy to be alive. If they had to spend one moment, or even half, right one mode, if you put your hands together and you have to take out some grain like this, it would not be equivalent to what we had to spend, even if we spent the amount of amount offered in gold, right? Because they believed at a time and this Hanalei if you ponder over it, certain things happen at certain times, Allah opens this time or he leaves this time open and after
why it closes, who he chose at that time was up to him. Ultimately, he chose the pizza habit, the best of creation would be at the time of the best of people a messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So these people, Allah chose them to come at a time. And they believed at a time where others didn't believe the very beginning of Islam, they didn't help this knowledge and gave it to us. So when it comes to the Sahaba, all of them we say all the love and we don't speak at any of them, whether it's a Chateau de la manualidades, olive, now we're talking about the Allahu anhu Fatima, the lover and her husband will present you speak good of all of them. But we are saying is we don't go to this
extreme or that extreme, neither decreasing them in any way no giving them things which they themselves didn't say we have with us. That's why it's mentioned that the grandson Oh, Mohammed Abu hanifa, he asks Ali organometallic Formula One about the best person and he says the best was Abacus, or the Allah one from the children of Annie about the Allahu anhu healings about butter and aroma. So what more do you want they themselves amongst themselves? They had goodness, and their relationship, you know, flourished. So what about those who came after another important point? We touched on it? And we'll touch on it again, is that a lot of what's mentioned in the history books,
especially the bad? This is no true is not true. It's the story itself could have been fabricated. And as you know, when history is that they always say the victory, the victory of the Congress, they write the history books, a lot of what's mentioned is inaccurate. And from that what's accurate, as we mentioned, where the Sahaba, the 11, who may have made a mistake, or they may have been something between them. We as we said that there are between two rewards and one reward and added to that some of them did good deeds. Previously, big big good deeds that would wipe out any mistakes that came after. So for example, the people have better when How about the Allahu anhu the messenger
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to go to Makkah usually you the people would know when he wanted to travel this time he didn't tell anybody. When they got to know he sent one of the women with a letter in her head telling the people of Makkah that the messenger is going to come and this x y Zed will happen so after they found out that how they brought their loved one who did this oh my god the Allahu becomes upset and he says, leave me a message of Allah true, you know, strike the neck of this. He went as far as saying this hypocrite, and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that how do you know
what Allah subhana wa Jalla looked at the people of better and he has forgiven them, ie they've done good deeds before so much so that these good deeds big good deeds are able to wipe out any small mistakes that they have made. The Sahaba the Allahu anhu is a you know, a topic where we are. We are not supposed to go further and get into details that are not mentioned authentically, especially when it comes to speaking evil because as we mentioned, once these pillars fall and people are able to, you know, throw doubt in them in the whole religion itself holds
absolutely 100% These were the companions of the Bible.
of creation sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and or the loved one to me and we love them all and we respect
and like you said, we ascribe to them, the level the level that Allah subhanho wa Taala has coded in afforded to them. So Zach a lot here, but yeah, you can I think we call it today inshallah we meet tomorrow.
sha Allah, Allah, Allah here and
while he comes Salaam are low market
