companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had his shield stolen, as many of you might know, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Allah, you send them one of the most expensive and important possessions that people would have would be their swords or their shields. So it was a really big loss for him. He went to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and he complained, he said, O Messenger of Allah, you know, my shield was stolen. And he thought that a particular person stole it to Arma innovate UK, and Toronto was someone who kept perhaps eyeing this shield looking at it. So he had a feeling that Tom I had stolen it, forma indeed, had stolen the shield. And when he felt
that people were suspecting him, and that he was going to be under scrutiny. He took the shield and he went to a Jewish man who is an acquaintance of his, and he asked this Jewish men to hold the shield for him. So the Jewish men doing him a favor, or perhaps he took some payment for it. He took the shield and he kept it inside this house, and thought about when people came to him to question him about the stolen shield, he denied it. He said, I didn't do anything. I didn't take anything. He denied it vehemently. And he indicated or he hinted, you know, maybe this Jewish man stole it. So they went to the Jewish man's house, and they found that he indeed had the shield. But he said to
them, Look, I didn't steal anything, was the one who gave it to me. So it was a situation the Jewish man is denying stealing, it was denying stealing it, how do they know who stole the shield? And so it created a bit of drama and problem that was occurring at that time, the family and the friends of farmout even though they probably knew that he did, in fact, steal the shield. They went to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam advocating on behalf of Parma and they started to try to put pressure on our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they said to him, how could you believe a disbelieving? You know a Catholic, a Jewish man over Torah, who's a Muslim? Who at least claimed to be a Muslim?
Like you need to defend the Muslim and the prophets of Allah Islam Of course doesn't know you know, both of these people are denying it. And within himself perhaps he felt to lean towards trauma he felt you know, maybe it was the one saying the truth he started to be convinced and sympathetic towards the claim of trauma and his family. And in this state, Allah subhanaw taala revealed these verses

Allah subhanaw taala tells our Prophet well I took wyndenhall Nina halsema Do not be an advocate for the ones who are deceitful. Allah is telling the family and the friends especially if thalma who knew he was lying, and we're still advocating and defending him. Why are you defending someone you know, is deceitful. And he's indicating to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this person you were feeling sympathetic for. He in fact, is the one who was deceitful. He is the one who stole and tried to put the blame on someone else. And this is a powerful lesson. Every single human has a tendency to bias we're more likely to believe people who are like us speak the same language who
look like us, or have the same religion as us. And Allah subhanaw taala wants to make it clear that it is how long to defend someone who's deceitful, even if they're from your own religion. And Allah subhanaw taala wants to make it clear that non Muslims have rights over us. And that is how long to take away the rights. Allah subhanaw taala shows us in the story, that the deceitful one that he mentions in the Quran is the one who claims to be a Muslim. And in fact, probably one of the hypocrites, but well the one who claimed to be a Muslim, and the one who was telling the truth was the one who was a Jewish man. This religion is a religion about justice. And Allah Subhana Allah
wants us to carry the ideal of justice into the world. Allah Subhana Allah says a few verses later, in the same surah Yeah, you and Medina amanu, who know me and I will post the show her that Shahada, Allah, Allah, Allah and forsaken Allah Subhana Allah says, Oh, you who believe stand firm for justice as witnesses in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. whatever other unforeseen from even if it's against
Your own self. Our religion is about justice and to be just with everybody that we meet
