Smart hunger and hunger Allah salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Subhanallah Samana kwantlen barakato. Welcome to the class of Aloma Quran. Today inshallah we will discuss the Manasa tea in the soda to Bakara, the hypocrites in Surah Baqarah.
Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala after he mentioned the description of the pious, their characters, their characteristics, and for ayat, he mentioned the disbelievers and the disbelievers were mentioned into iron and iron number six, and I am number seven.
Allah Subhana Allah says in Allah Vina cafaro sobre en la him under the home amlactin they don't lie. Verily those who disbelieve it is the same to them. Whether you want them or do not want them, they will not believe
in and Medina cafaro sobre la him and Gotham amlactin they don't like me no Hata Milan La La Colombe hemolysin name. Allah bizarre English Allah wa Hamada, nothing. Allah has set a seal on their hearts and on their hearings, and on their eyes, there is a covering, there's will be a great punishment.
We still are talking about the disbelievers. So first we have the pious then we have the disbelievers and then we have the hypocrites. Now,
in these two if I want you to read them again, in the NACA furusawa, Allah him and Tom Lambton, they don't like me. No, it is the same. Whether you want them or you do not want them, it will be the same. Don't you understand from this? Ayah?
As long as it's the same, then why do we?
Why do we call the kuffaar to believe in Allah? subhanaw taala? If it's the same, how do you understand this? Ayah correctly?
What do you say?
Those are the London Lakers these days. Yeah.
Oh, Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling the prophets of Salaam that the disbelievers
whether you want them or you don't want them, Are you with me? Or you're somewhere else? Because I don't see any interaction
is specify which.
will never do me. Yeah, but we don't know that. So we don't know who they are. So that's not an excuse for us. Not to give down.
So, again, because some people will come and say, Why do you preach Islam? Why do you tell them about Islam? Why do you talk about Islam? If Allah wanted to guide them, they will be guided. But Allah says here that this delivers, they will not be guided, whether you want them or you do not want them, it's the same.
So if it's the same, then why? Why do you call them? Well, let's say it's the same.
Even if you know that those people will not believe it's still your job to deliver the message. Your job is not to wait for them to believe or disbelief. Your job is to deliver the message, even if you're not for sure. Now again, what he Sam said is correct. We don't know who they are. But in case someone disbelief, we invite them we call them we did our best to preach Islam to them yet they did not respond, then we can apply this idea.
We tried our best, but they disbelieved. Always remember the context. Now this ayah Allah subhanaw taala wanted to remind the prophets on certain that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, sometimes there will be people will not believe. So it's to come forth the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and Allah subhanaw taala explained why in the second day, and number seven, Allah has set a seal on their hearts. Now if there is a seal
that means that the message will not penetrate until this seal is broken.
Marvin cathedra in the book he mentioned interesting thing about the seal because there are difference. There are different layers. There is a seal there is lock
Amala koliganek Fallujah, and there is a Stan
Baba Allah Allah. So there is a stamp law
And seal, you need to know, what's the difference? in each one, go to the book, page 105104105. Even Kathy Rama mentioned the difference and the importance.
Not now. That's your job later. So what's the Hatton Baba, and often all of them are layers on their hearts.
And on their eyes There is covering now. Does that mean? Bear with me? 121? Does that mean?
If you open up
the heart of the disbeliever, you will find the lock
or a stamp?
No, but that's what the law says. There is a seal on their hearts, don't you believe? What Allah says? What does that mean?
Is there a covering on their eyes?
We don't see it. So it's not there. So
yes, so we believe in things that we do not see. Even these these locks. They are not physical. But it is they're just like the physical locks. And that's the exactly the Quran, the style of the Quran. The Quran always gives you the parables of physical things
to relate to the things that you don't see. If you have a room and it is locked.
You cannot go there. So no matter how you try, you cannot go there until it's open. So the same thing with the heart, the message will not reach the heart until this seal is broken until this lock is opened.
So that's the reason why those people they disbelieve.
Now, the last word,
and this is what's mentioned in the book. torment gives a negative meaning.
torment is to someone who doesn't deserve it. That's what we say tournament. And Allah subhanaw taala does not use torment, Allah uses punishment, because those people they deserve it. Again, this is one of the issues of the year, you have always to watch the words you choose for translation for difficile. So it's not torment, it is punishment. Change that always in the Quran. Because Allah subhanaw taala is all just he punishes people because they deserve it.
Now we're moving to number eight, where Allah subhanaw taala starts talking about the hypocrites. We have 13 from eight until 2013, about the hypocrites and it is in the book from page 124 until 150
you have 150 pages.
Now, did Allah subhanaw taala say, now this is the description of the hypocrites.
Or what did Allah say?
Woman a Nazi, Manolo ama Nabila William will actually be mean, and of the people, a group that they say we believe it we they don't believe. Allah did not even mention the name, the hypocrites, why? Why do we come and say they are the hypocrites? What if they are not the hypocrites?
And the people don't know.
Again, this is the style of the Quran. Sometimes it doesn't give you the title. But you know, what's the name of them? It gives you the description. So you know Allah is talking about whom
Allah mentioned the pious and the disbelievers. Then he mentioned a third group in between what is this third group if they are not believers, non believers, they are the hypocrites. That's the description. And this is actually more effective, when Allah gives you the description, so you be careful.
The name itself is not an issue, whether they were labeled, when I 15 or whatever, Allah did not mention. That means in other words, a lamination
is a jacket in one corner, there is an entire chapter entire surah is called surah termina for
the 20 years. So Allah subhanaw taala did not name them, but we know for sure who they are. Now why Allah started with the pious and then he moved to the disbelievers and then the hypocrites.
Why didn't Allah start with the hypocrites? Yes.
The worst. So if they are the worst you start with them or you live them at the end.
Yes, you start this is the sooner you start with the good thing you start with the pious.
Again, their issue is more complicated so it needs That's why 13 are mentioned about the hypocrites.
So they it was suitable to be mentioned that the end
all the ayah in the Quran in this order for a reason. Allah does not mention anything haphazardly. There is a reason.
So now we are talking about the hypocrites. So what's the meaning of hypocrites?
What's the meaning of the hypocrite? Yes.
Someone who pretends to believe but they don't believe in their back. They don't they disbelief. So if someone
claimed that he believes in Jesus, and in the back is Jew, he's a hypocrite.
And the religious term, the hypocrites are those
who show belief
in the true religion while they disbelieve, but linguistically, yes, you're right, linguistically, when the hypocrite is the one who shows something and he hides something else, that's the hypocrite linguistically. And it it was derived from the whole
of an animal called jerboa, the rat, the desert tract.
It was known in Arabia, it has two holes.
So if a danger came,
you think that there is only one escape while there are two.
And that's why it's called Norfolk.
Even until now linguistically, they say Norfolk for the tunnel underground. Why? Because they don't see it.
That's why it's called the fac. Because you have two ways do you think there is one way only but it's two ways. That's where the word is derived from? The fact
is to show something to show belief
and to hide this belief, it started
or in Medina,
in Medina, why?
in Makkah, whether they were believers or disbelievers, because in Mecca, there was no need to conceal Khufu. When do you have an effect?
When you have power, when the Islamic State is strong in Mecca, Muslims were humiliated, they were
harmed, they were
abused by the disbelievers. If you become a Muslim, you have to face the difficulties. So there was no need to, to conceal. Cofer, because the the kuffaar were strong, while in Medina, the Muslims became strong. And the people who disbelieved they wanted to enjoy this privilege. So they conceal their disbelief. That's when it started in Medina. And again, one of the characteristics of the Medina is mentioning the hypocrites, any idea that mentions the hypocrites, it's Medina and I.
Now scholars divide the fact to two types.
We have two types of defense.
In fact, hypocrisy is divided to two types.
And that's the minor hypocrisy.
Every one of us may fall in this category, the practical hypocrisy, and then we have hypocrisy in the religion.
And that's the dangerous one. That's the one that Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned in the Quran. So we have two types of hypocrisy, practical hypocrisy or hypocrisy in actions. how this happens
when you pray.
You show people that you are sincere while you are hiding your evil intention, which is pleasing them instead of pleasing Allah.
It's practical hypocrisy. Does that take you out of the fold of Islam?
No, it doesn't. It doesn't. So, it is minor hypocrisy. While when you conceal this belief and the show belief then
there is hypocrisy in
religion in nakida in the belief and that's the dangerous one. Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran mentioned which type both types the first one, the second one?
Which one the first one?
Yes. All the hypocrisy which is mentioned in the Quran is
the hypocrisy and belief. While the prophet SAW Selim mentioned the characteristics of the practical hypocrisy
how many characteristics can we find for the hypocrites from the Hadith of the messenger? So
can you tell me for
Tell me, what are they?
Yes, when they make a promise they break their promise.
by the heart some of our job
when they lie in their speech, that had the fact that
when they are interested, they break.
Yeah, they betray the trust.
With that domina Han, these are four characteristics. Could a Muslim possess these characteristics?
He could instill a Muslim but he's a hypocrite as well. Now
when we say he is a Muslim, is a still a Muslim. So that's not the dangerous one. It's still dangerous because again, you don't know you are committing a sin. But you are not hiding this belief. You are committing a sin.
Unlike the hypocrites
who showed a man and they hide it they hit cover.
So we start with the first day about the hypocrites I am number eight. And of mankind there are some who say we believe in Allah and the Last Day, while in fact they don't believe permanent nassima Amana Bella, Bella Bella, Mama home meaning
look at the style of the Quran and of mankind,
of mankind tells you that they are not so many. They are not all mankind, and they are not few of mankind.
So it's group of people.
Again, the Quran is fair, it always gives you the correct number. There are some who say we believe in Allah and the Last Day
while in fact they don't believe.
What do you learn from this i?
The fact does not pertain to a race or nationality.
Remember the sign of the hypocrite? They lie in their speech? You learn from here also, they say we believe but they don't believe what they learn also.
Have you learned?
Are they believers are this believers? They are this believers. Why?
Allah says what they do not believe. So they are this believers. Now again, you have to be careful. Whoever said I am a Muslim is treated like what is treated like Muslim. That's what we know. We cannot know what's in their hearts. But in the Judgement Day, they are the lowest depths of hellfire. They are this believers. So are they believers or disbelievers. They are this believers, but in this life, they take the rulings of Muslims because we don't know.
Is it enough for someone to say I believe
to be considered believer
for us, but in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. It's not enough why.
Eman is different than Islam. We will discuss this issue in the book of women. But hear from this ayah how do we learn this? That's the tafsir always when you read and I try to derive the lessons, how many lessons can you get? They said we believe if saying is enough, it should be enough for them. And the law would have accepted it from them. But it was not enough. Allah said they say they believe but they are not believers. This tells you saying Allah is not enough. Don't take the word. People say we believe and they become believers automatically.
in the sight of Allah, they are disbelievers. Yes to us. That's sufficient because we cannot judge people.
But in reality, saying only is not enough.
Next Dyer, you have your own Allah La Vina Amano Mama. Yes, the owner in LA for some of my showroom
and in another generation or my u haul the owner Atlanta for some of my children, they try to deceive Allah and those who believe, while they only deceive themselves and perceive it not.
Again, what do you learn from this ayah?
How they lie?
They try to deceive, they don't lie, but
deception could be a form of lying. Okay.
Uh huh. What do we have from the students online?
Because they are disbelievers. They think that Allah does not know what's in their hearts. So this is the nature of the hypocrite. The hypocrite is what
is the deceiving person?
Who's affected by the hypocrites now? Could they cause harm to Muslims? Of course, but in reality, who's mostly harmed
themselves, they are harming themselves? What do you understand from this? If someone thinks that he is harming you? he's stealing from you. He wants to steal $100 every time he wants to sell $100 he spends $150.
He spends more to steal less. He thinks that he's doing something good.
What do you call this man?
Exactly. hypocrites are stupid.
They are insane. Why? Because Allah said they perceive it not.
Allah is reminding you
here in this ayah that they try to deceive, so be careful.
hypocrites, hypocrisy, this is very important thing. You cannot see it. If you see someone you say this is a hypocrite. That's not a hypocrite because it's in the heart. So you cannot judge people never ever tell someone who's a hypocrite. You may see some signs. So when you see these signs, what do you do?
You stay away. You'll be careful because you remind yourself that this is what the last panel that has mentioned in the Quran.
evil deeds could blind your heart.
They try to deceive people, but they only deceive themselves. And they don't see it. Why? Because of their evil.
Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that whenever you you do evil, the after evil lead
consecutively what will happen? Your heart is sealed. So now you're blind. Even if you see your blind
people who be Morocco,
Morocco, while Hamada La MaMa can via the bone mechanic of the bone in their hearts is a disease and the law has increased their disease a painful punishment is theirs because they used to tell lies.
Okay, any more lessons
in their hearts is a disease.
hypocrisy is disease. It's a chronic disease. Why?
What are the most difficult diseases to treat to cure heart diseases
and the disease is not easy. Therefore it's very difficult to guide hypocrite
to make him believe again. Why? Because his disease is not physical disease. It is in the heart.
It is in the heart.
Who's the most paid doctor?
How doctors cardiology.
So again, it's very difficult. It's very difficult. If you're I stopped seeing
Are you still alive?
Yes. But if your heart stopped beating
Exactly. So again, the disease of the heart is, is very dangerous. What else? What can we learn from this
painful punishment? Is there because they used to tell lies? What do you learn from this?
A lot makes it worse. Does that mean a lot helps people? A lot deceives people,
Allah does not guide people, instead of guiding them he increased their disease is this justice?
believe in their hypocrisy. So
they persist on their hypocrisy. They insist on it. So Allah subhanaw taala only increases them. But again,
isn't Allah so merciful? Shouldn't Allah guide them instead of increasing their misguidance?
That's what they want. Imagine if there is a mother, and she's asking her son always to stay away, stay away, stay away. And he refuses every time. Eventually what she will do? Wouldn't she let him You deserve it?
Allah is more merciful than the mother with her children. But if that's what you want, Allah showed you the two ways and told you this is the right way. This is the wrong way. Yet you insisted on the wrong way.
Fine, you take it, you want it?
You want this? You insist on it. So take it. That's just a lot a lot. He guided you. He showed you the true religion, the right path, the straight path and you don't want it.
What else can we learn from this is
a painful punishment is theirs.
It's waiting for the hypocrites the painful punishment, they will be punished more than the disbelievers.
Will they be punished eternally? Or do you think?
of course they are disbelievers.
The hypocrites are liars. That's what the law says. Because of what they lie because of the lies they said.
The mechanic the bone, this is one of the nature characteristics of the hypocrite. This is his nature that he is a liar.
Islam and Muslims.
They intend to harm the believers because they try to deceive.
And number 11. It's about mischeif way that a lot of pseudo fill out the ALU in nama national Muslim and when it is said to them, Do not make mischief on the earth they say we are only peacemakers.
Don't you have people they are causing mischief and when you tell them why you do this and they tell you are peacemakers
Of course countries, presidents leaders of the countries
they kill innocent people. They cause wars while you are doing this.
They are peacemakers they are not increasing their.
their money. their wealth. No they are peacemakers. What do you learn from this side?
hypocrites are liars Yeah, but here in particular, this ayah
they are given the guidance but they refuse to take it. Do not make mischief. You learn from this that they are mischievous. The hypocrites are mischievous.
What do you learn also?
Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Sharon, this ayah is related to the previous I rarely They are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not.
Yeah, reformers, reformers, peacemakers it's the same.
Verily, they are the ones who
mischeif who are the true mischievous?
According to the ayah, the hypocrites what's the mischeif? Because
they, I mean, was there any battle between the hypocrites and the believers? No.
Yeah, with the Jews with the disbelievers but they themselves did they fight the Muslims? They supported. So what's the mischeif they cost? There was not anything physical,
The mischeif the traumas chief is this belief in Allah subhanaw taala. When you disbelieve in Allah subhanaw taala you are causing mischief?
Because Allah knows what's best for you. Allah knows that the true religion is Islam. Allah wants from you to build this earth. By this believing in Allah, you are causing mischief. That's the true mischief the real mischief.
How they cause mischief
by this believing in Allah and the messenger sallallahu wasallam. by lying, you're causing mischief by trying to deceive people
by helping the enemies of Islam just in the Battle of Allah.
Yes, exactly. Why the matter of the hypocrites is dangerous because they are not visible. You think they are with you? Now the disbelievers you know they are your enemies. But the true enemy is the one that you don't know he's your enemy. You trust him.
And he turns against you. So these are examples of the mischeif of the hypocrites lying to the people.
This believing in Allah and the messenger assassin and helping the enemies of Islam, and many other
So the hypocrites are the real mischeif people.
Many times people, even the criminals, when they kill someone,
if they are asked why you did that? Do they say
I did the most horrible thing. Or they say he deserves it.
I'm innocent, right? Why? That's what they think. The shebang comes to them beautifies their actions. This is one of the worst things
can happen in a bill Campbell accident. Suriname Allah say, shall we inform you of the most losers? Those who lost their deeds, those who do evil and they think they are doing good deeds. That's exactly what the hypocrites are doing. They say we are peacemakers but actually in reality, they are causing mischief.
Again, it's not sufficient to say things only. They said we are peacemakers. Was it accepted from them? What is the evidence that you are peacemakers you have to prove evidence for what you say.
What the hour in Tacoma lay have a naturalness. However,
if you claim something without the proof without evidence, it remains a claim only. It cannot be true, cannot become a fact, not only for it to become a fact you need an evidence. If you say you are Peacemaker, what is the evidence?
Again, many people, they think they are doing good things. So do not think that anyone who thought he is doing a good deed, it's really a good deed. This is a reminder for us many times we think this is the best thing we can do. You have to question yourself always. We learned this from the story of the hypocrites because they say we are peacemakers they are doing the worst deeds and they think they are peacemakers.
So, not everyone who does a good deed is really doing a good deed.
What exactly will allow me to come and ask God not me. No, come on. I'm gonna suffer her Allah in the home homeless or for her or we're lacking.
And when it is said to them, believe as the people believe, they say Shall we believe as the fools have believed? Verily, they are the fools but they do not know.
I want to hear again. And when it is said to them believe as the people believe, who's the people
believe as the people believe? How's the people
replace the people with a suitable word? What do you say?
righteous believe as the righteous
That's true. Can you be more specific?
Who are the people who believed?
prophets? How many prophets were at the time of the messenger saucer?
So it's not prophets?
Who are the companions? companions? Exactly. Believe as the companions believed. They were the ones who believe.
What was the response? Shall we believe as the fools?
Who did they mean by the false? Again the companions?
Exactly. That's the nature of the hypocrites. What's the nature of the hypocrites? The Great insult?
Wrong, the companions, the believers? Verily, they are the fools, but they do not know.
Yes. So again, the hypocrites are fools. Yes.
Exactly. That's a good question. Now if they are asked to believe.
And they said,
to those who told them to believe, do you want us to believe like the fools? That means they were known as hypocrites. How could this happen?
Well, again, at the time of the messenger send them.
There were a group of people.
They said, we believe, but they were hypocrites. Now of this group, there were some people guided.
And they saw what's going on.
And they believe so they came back to the other people because they knew that they are disbelievers. And they reminded them, why don't you believe or from other people, that they don't know the reality? They just come to them and they tell them believe they may not respond to them directly. But between them they say, shall we believe as the false belief so there are two ways to interpret this is
the hypocrites are arrogant. We'll learn this from the IOI
they consider the believers fools, while they are the real fools, but because of their arrogance, they don't see that
inviting hypocrites calling them to Islam is very difficult.
Again, because if that's their response, they want us to believe like the fools
because they're their disease in their hearts. It is really difficult to guide
Yeah, it's hard to make them turn around. Yeah, yeah.
No, Sophie, what's the meaning of Safa?
The the what's the meaning of food?
What's the meaning of stupid?
Someone does not use his senses in Arabic linguistically Safa they call a Clifford lachelle.
They say like if the wise man
they try to rationalize it or to give you tangible thing. If the brain of the wise man, his smartness, were to be measured, like one pound, the fool.
His smartness is
is only one fifth
because he's his fool. That's the meaning of foolishness. The suffer
another lesson we learn from this is when they say they want us to believe like the fools that belittling the believers.
Making fun of them is one of the characteristics of the hypocrites.
They want us to believe like the fools
they make fun of the believers.
hypocrites are the most ignorant people. They are not only arrogant, but also they are ignorant. Why?
Because they don't know that they are the real fools. Who's the fool? It's you. You don't believe and you call others false while you are the real fool. So they are the true
Lotte defends his believers. Again this is a lesson we learn from this ayah Why? Because a lot responded to their claims.
There is no need for you to reply to them. Allah will defend you, Allah
who said that indeed they are the true fools who said last minute Allah so Allah is defending his believers. His slaves
were available levina Amano kalu Amanda what is the Hello Alicia Tina him kalu in Nana come in Nononono Mr. Xu and when they meet those who believe they say we believe
but when they are alone with their devils, they say truly we are with you. Verily we are we were about mocking
Allah who stands up in the home feet of Yama, Allah mocks at them and leaves them increasing in their deviation to wander blindly. Okay, what do we learn from these two if again, and when they meet those who believe they say we believe
why they say that?
Why they say that from the outside. Why don't they? They are afraid they are cowards. Exactly. That's one of the characteristics of the hypocrites, they are cowards. They are brave. They would say we are disbelievers.
They are afraid they are scared.
But when they are alone with their devils, they say, truly we are with you.
What does that tell you? One time they say we believe another time they say we are with you? We don't believe they are confused.
They are hesitated.
They don't have security. Peace.
Yes. And when they are along with their devils, what do we mean by their devils?
Which shaytan who are the devils?
Their friends? Why doesn't the ayah say their friends? Who are the rebels who are their friends?
There are levels from human beings and from gene so what What's the meaning of this I hear?
Again, a man in Kerala mentioned that it could be their leaders like Abdullah nobody been salute the devils. These are the devil's or it could be
their supporters from the Jews who encourage them to disbelieve in the Prophet Salah Salem
or it could be devils from the jinn.
Like the shaitaan
it could be there are several meanings. So what do we learn from this ayah
one important lesson to choose the good company the good friend, because the devil's increased them, encourage them to disbelief. You need the good friend if you if you are going astray.
To bring you back to the straight path. You don't want someone to increase you in deviation in misguidance It is very important to choose the good company.
Again, the cover this and the humiliation of the hypocrites.
They are afraid they are scared they are cowards they cannot say we are disbelievers.
So they think that they are strong but actually they are weak.
Because they are hesitating. Is there someone watching us
there is nobody they declared their Cobra if there is someone they say they are believers.
Now, we will move to the example of the hypocrites after Allah subhanaw taala listed to you
their characteristics. Now Allah subhanaw taala will give you a physical example again for the hypocrites and this is the eloquence of the Quran. Now, I will stop here in Sharla. With this we will end our session. Your job now is to list the characteristics that are our mission. This is for you. It is an assignment you don't have to turn it in. Try to list how many characters mentioned for the hypocrites in this is
what about them?
from eight to 15
