Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh insha Allah, today's topic, we will be doing the Tafseer of surah, Martin and surah ma is a very interesting surah

00:00:13--> 00:00:58

because it discusses a few social social issues, which people take lightly. And it mentions how the social issues are a very important part of the religion. And this is a very important part of us to focus on because for many people, the religion of Islam becomes only about the rituals. And we forget that there's a social dimension as well, that we have responsibilities towards the orphans, towards the poor, towards those around us to do good and to be kind to others. And we begin to think that it's only about the prayers, and it's only about the fasting. No, it's about both Coca Cola, Coca Cola about the rights of Allah and the rights of the slaves. And that is what the theme of

00:00:58--> 00:01:09

sudama is all about. Now, a bit of background information on sudama own, there is a difference of opinion amongst the scholars, whether the surah was revealed in Mecca or Medina.

00:01:11--> 00:01:53

The reason for this difference of opinion is that it has all of the qualities of a makansutra in that it is very short and to the point and discusses a few aspects of our aqeedah. On the other hand, the surah also talks about the hypocrites and some of the qualities of the hypocrites and we know that is found in the verses revealed in Medina. So because of these two different themes found in the short sutra, some of the scholars have declared it a Moroccan Torah and others have declared it a Medina surah. Either way, it is a part of the Quran and part of the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala which he has revealed to us, whether it was revealed in Mecca or Medina. Either way, it is

00:01:53--> 00:02:14

still compulsory upon us to understand it and follow its guidance. And that is what we are looking at today. Very briefly, let's look at the translation of the surah and then we will break it down verse by verse For a detailed Tafseer so the translation of the sutra Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem are either lazy you can never be Dean.

00:02:15--> 00:02:21

Have you seen the one who denies the deen the Day of Judgment for the legal

00:02:23--> 00:02:26

team. He is the one who treats orphans harshly

00:02:28--> 00:02:34

whether you're hoodoo Allah, amin miskeen, and he does not encourage people to feed the poor.

00:02:35--> 00:02:49

For we lose mousseline. So destruction to those who pray this Allah, Allah Dino whom Ancelotti himself Hoon, those who praise Allah in a state of laziness and and mindfulness.

00:02:50--> 00:03:22

While the Drina, whom you're wrong, those who pray for show who pray to show off to others, why yumna una, my own, and they overlook small deeds. This is the short translation of the surah made up of just seven verses. But the seven verses give us a very powerful message unless you have a handle a start of the surah by telling us Have you seen the one who denies the religion and this

00:03:23--> 00:03:36

verse, some of the scholars have said that it refers to Waleed named Moira, one of the leaders of the Quraysh, as I say, refers to us who also wanted to lead it of the Quraysh.

00:03:37--> 00:04:09

By the background about these two men, David, two of the leaders of the corporation were amongst the biggest enemies of Islam and biggest opponents of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And Walid Nimmo Hara had a son, Khalid Ebner Walid and I asked him had the sun among us, and then sand we also initially amongst the biggest enemies of Islam, but six months before the Treaty of who they BIA was last six months after the Treaty of hoody BIA.

00:04:11--> 00:04:35

It was the same two sons of these enemies of Islam call him a lead and among us, who accepted Islam and became amongst the leading Sahaba to such an extent that among us became the conqueror of Egypt, and Palestine. And Holly nearly became safe for law to sort of Allah

00:04:36--> 00:04:45

who was undefeated in battle, and was instrumental in the Muslims conquering Iraq and Syria. The lesson that we can take from this

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

is that you do not judge a child by the Father. We have the same Like father like son. This is not always true. This is not always true. Look at what he did. He was amongst the biggest

00:05:00--> 00:05:54

enemies of Islam. An entire Surah Surah mudassir is an entire part of Sumo deceit revealed about Walid iminium O'Hara and his evil deeds. Yet his son, Holly dibny, Waleed became the greatest commander of the Muslim army in history. One of the greatest Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, we learn from you that we can't look at one family member and judge another. Every human and individual is responsible before Allah separately. So not only don't we judge people, but also we don't blindly follow our forefathers. One of the biggest crimes committed by the Quraysh was that they regarded the blind following of their forefathers, as compulsory. Whenever Rasulullah

00:05:54--> 00:06:06

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would tell them to follow the deen, they would see we will follow what we found our forefathers doing. Unless you were hunter revealed many verses about this verses which say, for example,

00:06:07--> 00:06:12

that would you follow your forefathers, even if they were wrong and not likely not rightly guided,

00:06:13--> 00:06:54

if they were astray, and not rightly guided, these verses will reveal to indicate that it's not about what my father believes it's what it's about what is allowing me to believe? What does Allah what has allowed revealed, that's what I need to believe. And so we find the Hollywood elite and our ignore us did not blindly follow their fathers. Rather, they analyzed and they studied, and they came to the conclusion that Islam was the true religion of God, and they became Muslims and they became the leaders of the Muslims. And if you read the lives of these people know, for example, I'm originally us when he became a Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said something very interesting,

00:06:54--> 00:07:40

he said, all of the people have become Muslim, but Amr has believed, interesting for you. So everybody has become Muslim, but Amr has believed, why did you use this word for me? Because I'm worried now, as did research. He was a very intellectual individual. And he only he only accepted rasulillah slice of his message when he was 100% convinced that this is the true religion of God. So he only took his Shahada when true belief had entered his heart. And so we see a very big difference between the attitude and the beliefs of the fathers and the sons. And so this sudo su Rama owned is a difference of opinion. Some scholars say it was revealed about Waleed in mo Hara, some may say it

00:07:40--> 00:08:01

was revealed about us, others it was revealed about the hypocrites, whatever the case may be, we can take a lesson from the lives of all of these individuals. So these, this is the first verse. Another point to take from the first verse is that the word mentioned yet is Dean. Now most of us know the word Dean to refer to a way of life

00:08:02--> 00:08:41

to refer to Islam itself. But there are multiple places in the Quran, where the word Deen refers to the Day of Judgment. Right, this is one of those verses the other Another example is in Surah, Al Fatiha, where Allah subhana wa tada calls himself, Molly kiyomi, Dean, Master of the Day of Dean the Day of Judgment. So the word Dean also carries the meaning of judgment. And that's the meaning which is brought in this verse of the Quran, as explained by the Companion of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abdullah Abbas, radi Allahu anhu.

00:08:42--> 00:08:52

So, this verse is talking about people who denied the Day of Judgment. And we mentioned the names of who the scholars say it might have been referring to,

00:08:53--> 00:08:59

unless you've handled or didn't list some of the qualities of those who deny the religion

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

or other those who deny the judgment.

00:09:05--> 00:09:10

And these are very interesting qualities because a lot of listing has qualities of those who deny the judgment.

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

But today, some of these qualities are found amongst Muslims.

00:09:16--> 00:09:31

The first one for that ecology, the Olia team, they are the ones who treat the orphans harshly. They treat orphans harshly. Allah subhanaw taala says that to be harsh to an orphan is

00:09:32--> 00:09:35

a quality of a disbeliever in another surah.

00:09:37--> 00:09:58

In Surah Taha Allah subhanaw taala tells us about the orphans for Amalia tema, por la Takara. As for the orphan, don't treat him badly. It's a command don't treat the orphans badly. And if you look at the history of Islam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam himself was an orphan

00:10:00--> 00:10:47

So, in Islam, a very high status has been given to orphans. And you know, we live in a day and age where more and more children are finding themselves without a father or without a mother or without both parents. And we really need to evaluate how we as a society treat them. We need to take a short break when we return, we will continue with the Tafseer of surah ma Salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. We are looking at the Tafseer of surah ma own. And we are looking at verse two of surah my own way Allah subhanho wa Taala giving us the qualities of the disbelievers. He tells us about the arrogant disbeliever one of the qualities is that they oppress oppress the orphans. And we

00:10:47--> 00:10:48

talking about the

00:10:49--> 00:11:35

issue that we need to reevaluate. We need to leave evaluate today in our lives, that what is our position as a society towards orphans, towards widows, towards divorces towards people who do not have a complete family structure. Because we are living in a time when this is becoming more and more common, not just talking amongst Muslims as Muslims, our social duties are not just towards other Muslims, but towards anybody who is in need of help. Like the duels of the oppressed, are accepted against the oppressor, even if the oppressed is not a Muslim and the oppressor is a Muslim, Allah subhanaw taala is just an besides with the oppressed, so we need to make sure that we are not

00:11:35--> 00:12:01

oppressing anyone, and we need to do what we can to help the widows and divorcees and orphans of the world. Wherever you go, you find someone who is suffering from a family structure which is broken a broken home, and they are going to travel in trying to maintain their family lives, or even just to live to survive in this world. We need to work out ways to help them.

00:12:02--> 00:12:53

And that takes us to verse number three, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions another quality of the arrogant disbeliever. And he says about these individuals, whether you're hoodoo Allah or amil mysskin, they do not encourage people to feed the poor. They do not encourage people to feed the poor. And I mean, we see this in the world today, that we live in a day and age where everyone talks about the 99% and the one percenters and we talk about how majority of the resources of the world have been monopolized by a very small percentage of individuals. Most of the countries in this world are suffering from poverty. And it's not because of a lack of resources. Allah subhanho wa Taala has

00:12:53--> 00:13:06

provided us with enough resources to feed the world. In fact, it has been proven sociologically that there's enough resources on earth to feed three Earth's worth of people. So why then,

00:13:07--> 00:13:52

is there so much poverty in the world today? It's because we are not distributing the wealth in the Islamic economical system, the Islamic system, where everybody receives a share, where the poor are treated with respect and given wealth, where nobody is allowed to monopolize we nobody is allowed to keep wealth for themselves at the disadvantage of others. This system is missing in the world today, what do we have instead, we have a capitalistic and materialistic system, which everybody for themselves, we everyone's trying to get the Richard in the next person. And for what, what good comes out of it. We spoke about this when we spoke about surah takasaki and Haku, Takahata, Zulu

00:13:52--> 00:14:06

Tamil makabe that we, we are distracted by this competition, this rat race, to pile up the things of this world, until when until we die and then it's too late, in the insanity of mankind is headed for destruction.

00:14:08--> 00:14:51

So we find that today, this quality that Allah mentioned, of not encouraging the feeding of the poor, it has become a norm in our society. And even amongst us Muslims, we need to think about this, how many of us are more worried worried about buying a bigger car, and a better house and a bigger television than we are about our neighbors and our friends who are not doing as well as us? I mean, so many times you find families where one brother is a millionaire, and his brother or sister is battling to make ends meet, and what will they do? If they lend their money they'll lend their money on interest which is completely haram and one of the greatest sins and they will demand them to pay

00:14:51--> 00:15:00

back the debt as soon as possible. without even thinking that I don't need this money. This is my brother. This is my sister how much more rewarding it would be in the sight of a live action.

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

Give it to them. And nobody thinks like this anymore. We barely find people who think like this anymore. This charitable nature of helping even our own families. Brother we find so many times after dealing with cases with brother and sister don't speak to each other anymore because of a fight over money issues where we have family members who are rich, while their own parents are struggling to pay their rent, and to survive alone. Why what has happened to us, with our Islam gone? Well, we limited our Islam to prayers in the mustard is that all Islam is left for us. Because it's much more than that. caring for others looking after those who are less advantaged and we are

00:15:44--> 00:16:27

sharing the wealth which Allah has blessed us with all of these are necessary qualities of the believer, if we do not have a charitable nature, if you do not have a generous nature, if you do not have a caring nature, then our Eman is deficient. There is something wrong with our understanding and practice of Islam. Because these are qualities of the believer and stopping people from feeding the poor is the quality of the disbeliever it's the quality of the arrogant disbelief for like Waleed mojarra. It's not just any type of this video because you get charitable disbelievers as well. Right? But this is the quality of some of the worst of the worst. So in these three verses,

00:16:27--> 00:17:10

Allah subhanho wa Taala is warning us have these qualities. And he's reminding us at the same time that this Dean is not just a dean of Sala and that ends and fasting and vigor, no, there's also charity, there's also caring for others. It's also looking after the orphans, looking after the widows and the divorces and the poor, the poor individuals that we know and anybody who needs our help. This is part of their religion, and one who denies this is denying a part of their religion. The second half of the surah focuses on some of the qualities of the hypocrites. And he starts off with a very interesting verse. And we can learn a very important lesson from this first the verse in

00:17:10--> 00:18:00

question verse number four of surah my own is for Whelan, Lil mo Salim. So woe to those who read the Salah. Woe to those who pray the Salah destruction Hellfire to those who pray the Salah. Now, this verse of the Quran, if taken on its own, out of context, without looking at the next verse, you will completely destroy and change the meaning of this verse. Because it actually continues into the next verse. So destruction and Hellfire to those who pray this Allah Allah Xena whom inshallah teams who who pray the Salah leisurely and and mindfully you see context we talking about context, this is a very important lesson for us. Because today there are many people who take verses of the Quran out

00:18:00--> 00:18:39

of context, and completely change the meaning. Right? The most common example we find is when someone brings up a verse from the Quran and says, you know, you Muslim, your Quran says kill the disbelievers wherever you find them. Right, and they bring this up as a verse in the Quran. And definitely there is a verse in the Quran, which is kill them wherever you find them. But the verse has a context. The verse has other verses around it, explaining who says this. And when they said this, and what's the context for it, it's not killed them wherever you find them. It was a command given on the battlefield, by the commander to the army, not a blanket command for every Muslim

00:18:39--> 00:18:45

everywhere. So we talk about context. And not quoting verses out of context. This is an excellent example.

00:18:46--> 00:19:05

For wielding Mussolini, if someone just stopped there, then someone could use this verse to say you don't need to praise Allah. Right? Because that's what happens when you take things out of context. So be careful when someone quotes a verse of the Quran or Hadith to prove a point which sounds dodgy, which sounds

00:19:06--> 00:19:32

anti Islamic, which doesn't make sense. We need to analyze the context is this person quoting us the full picture of the coating the full version, the full Heidi's are undertaking and cutting and pasting pieces to make things look bad to make things look wrong. So this verse gives us a good idea, an example of just how a person can just take a verse out of a surah and completely change its meaning by doing so.

00:19:33--> 00:19:46

So what is this verse referring to? Now let's go into the actual meaning of the verse for weanling, Mussolini alladhina, whom Ancelotti himself, Allah subhanho wa Taala in these verses are describing some of the qualities of the hypocrites

00:19:48--> 00:19:51

destruction to those who pray the solar

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

who do so in a state of laziness or unfined and mindfulness. So Allah subhanaw taala, saying that one of the qualities

00:20:00--> 00:20:21

of the hypocrites, is that when the pre Sala the prix de Sala leisurely, the previous are unmindful. Again, time for introspection. How do we pay our Salah? Do we concentrate? Do we understand what we are saying? Do we benefit from the solar?

00:20:22--> 00:20:26

Or is it just something that we do and mindfully and leisurely to get over with it?

00:20:28--> 00:20:32

solar is not meant just to be a ritual.

00:20:33--> 00:20:42

Solar is not meant just to be something that we go up and down. No. Soda is meant to be

00:20:43--> 00:20:58

a part of our lives a communication with Allah subhanho wa Taala such a communication which will change our lives every time we played. We need to take a short break down. When we return we will continue with the Tafseer of the surah

00:20:59--> 00:21:48

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. We were looking at the verses for wheedling, mousseline, alladhina, whom Ancelotti himself who that whoa and destruction to those who pray their solar in a state of laziness, and, and mindfulness. If we look at the early generations, the solar of the people who came before us, was very different from our solar. When they would pray, they would cry when they would pray, it would affect the others near them as well. One of the best examples of this is the Sala of Abu Bakr, Siddiq radi Allahu anhu very interesting storm, even our Baccarat deal and who wanted to make hedra for maka, ohana

00:21:49--> 00:22:04

had offered him protection and let to let him stay in Makkah. But the police yamaka said the Abu Bakar can stay in Morocco on one condition. He does not pray his solar in public. The interesting condition he didn't tell him not to do that.

00:22:05--> 00:22:49

They did not tell him not to teach Quran, they simply said he should not pray in public. Why? Well, if the story continue, well, the story continues. And Abu Bakar or audio and who he started praying his solar in his garden. And when he would pray, he would cry, because he understood what he was reciting. And it would affect his heart. And people would gather around and they would be affected by his solar. And his solar was a bigger than our than many of the lectures that we give today. And so the Quran actually made a condition that he should pray his Salah inside his house, because they were afraid people were going to become Muslim just by watching him play solo. So the soul of the

00:22:49--> 00:22:52

Sahaba was on another level altogether.

00:22:53--> 00:23:01

So why is it that our Salah does not have the same effect on us? So how do we get out of this and mindfulness? How do we

00:23:03--> 00:23:04

get out of this?

00:23:06--> 00:23:14

laziness in our salon being unable to concentrate, unable to pay attention to what we are seeing? Or being unable to benefit

00:23:15--> 00:23:35

from our solo? How do we get away from this? Very simply put, one of the main things that we can do to change the quality of our soil is to understand what we are reciting in Surah Baqarah, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the qualities of

00:23:37--> 00:24:21

of initial response speaks about the people who take alcohol who drink alcohol, he says to them, that do not come to Salah while you are drunk while you are intoxicated. Until you until you understand what you are reciting did not come to Salah while you are intoxicated, until you understand what you are reciting. Now the question we need to ask ourselves is do we understand what we are reciting? If not, then, you know we falling into the same category of those who went for Salah while they were intoxicated. We don't understand what we recite. And when you don't understand something, it will not benefit you. The way it's supposed to benefit you is a very big difference

00:24:21--> 00:24:47

between the Sala of somebody who is reciting Surah Al Fatiha understanding the Tafseer of Surah Al partea. Understanding the replies to every line of Surah Al Fatiha understanding the student alpha t is a DA and making the dua from his heart as compared to someone who is reciting Surah Al Fatiha for no other reason except that he knows he has to recite it in the solar.

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

So there's a very big difference between the two. And we really, really need to move from the second category into the first we need to become people who understand our stroller.

00:25:00--> 00:25:38

That's why we have this program. That's why we are focusing on the Tafseer of the commonly recited sutras so that when you recite the surah, in the Salah, instead of thinking about anything else and being unmindful, you will think over its Tafseer and its translation. And therefore, you'll be able to concentrate in the salon and benefit from the salon insha Allah. So we need to move away from this category of being people who are unmindful in the salon because this is a quality of the hypocrites. And really, we are not benefiting from our Salah until we understand. The best way to understand what we recite in our solar is to learn Arabic.

00:25:40--> 00:26:25

If we learn the Arabic language, our Salah will reach another level altogether. But for those of us who can't learn Arabic, the translations are there. With the translation, you don't get the full in depth of seal, but you get the message, you get the main meanings. You get it, and this will benefit you this will definitely make a difference. So that's all of us make an effort there when it comes to the sutras and the asgar. The words of remembrance mentioned in the Salah, whatever it is that we see and recite in our Salah, let us learn the translation. Let us learn the translation. And when we are praying the solar let us concentrate on the translation, it will dramatically improve the

00:26:25--> 00:26:29

quality of our solar, the level of concentration in our solar

00:26:30--> 00:26:49

and our closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala we will feel the difference, then we wouldn't be just reading namaz as a ritual. But we will be praying to Allah as a means of getting close to Allah subhanho wa Taala and improving ourselves. There is another quality mentioned in the sutra about how people solar

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

can

00:26:53--> 00:27:10

how people's solar can be done in a wrong way. And it's mentioned as the quality of the hypocrites. First we mentioned this, who knows who predicts a lot leisurely or and mindfully. The other quality mentioned in the next verse, and levena, whom you're all

00:27:11--> 00:27:14

those who pre sola for sure.

00:27:15--> 00:27:50

So the first verse, verse five is talking about the physical qualities of the Father. That is done leisurely, haphazardly, and mindfully. The second one is talking about the spiritual quality of the Salah. That is not done for the sake of Allah. It's done just to please people maybe to make our parents happy. Maybe two people think we still Muslim though people don't don't say anything about our Eman. Maybe it's just to make the community happy to make our parents happy, our spouses, happy our teachers happy whatever it is, this is not solid. This is real.

00:27:52--> 00:28:36

This is real what is real. Rhea is the hidden shark. It is the hidden shark. It means to do acts of deeds that should be done only for the sake of Allah to do it for someone other than Allah subhanho wa Taala and it is something which had been warned about in detail that in depth in the Quran in the Sunnah Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said that I fear for my own mother, he didn't shirk. I feel for my own mud hidden shark. What is the hidden Shirky he was asked, he said the area where a person would be praying this Allah and they when they realized someone's watching him, they start praying even better. So you bring this a lot better for Allah, or because someone's watching you.

00:28:37--> 00:29:03

Right? So this is a very, very dangerous deed, and it's so dangerous. That mentioned Sahih al Bukhari, the first Muslims to be thrown into the Hellfire will be those who did the good deeds out of area. They did good deeds. They lived righteous lives, pious lives, but it wasn't for the sake of Allah. As mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said on the Day of Judgment,

00:29:04--> 00:29:22

the scholar will be brought forth and will be asked about his knowledge. And he will see that I learned and taught your religion for your Sikh or Allah, Allah will tell him you lied. You learned and taught Islam so people will see that you are a scholar, that people will see that you are knowledgeable.

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

And you have received that and then he will be thrown into hell pile. And the majority will come forth and see Oh Allah, I did Jihad for your sake. feasability Allah, Allah will see you like, you did Jihad so that people will see that you are brief. And people did that. People said that and then he'll be thrown into the hellfire. And the generous person will be brought forth and will be told and he will see Oh Allah, I gave lots of charity for your sake. Allah will tell him you have lied. You gave charity so people will say that you are generous.

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

And you'll receive that. And he too will be thrown in to help. I know it's interesting that the same surah, which talks about the importance of being charitable, in the same surah, which warns us against via, because as you can see, one of the three main areas where people fall into real doing deeds for showing up is charity. Right? We do charity for the sake of the people. And I've warned about this before we've spoken about this before. One of the most common spiritual sicknesses in the oma today is the sickness of what will the people say? Doing things to please the people doing haram to please the people staying away from goody two to please the people? What is all this? This is not

00:30:43--> 00:31:19

from Islam, this is real, this is living for the sake of someone other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is a very dangerous path to go down. So we need to be seriously thinking about this, this currency to truly do something for the sake of Allah. Before doing a good deed, remind yourself that I'm doing this for Allah alone. While doing the deed, remind yourself I am doing this for Allah alone. And after you have completed the deed, remind yourself I did that for a while. Don't don't boast about your good deeds.

00:31:20--> 00:31:25

Don't tell it to people, to the people can say he's so pious or she's so pious.

00:31:26--> 00:31:31

No, keep it to yourself. Keep it a secret just like how you keep your sins a secret

00:31:32--> 00:31:41

so that it is solely between you and Allah subhana wa Tada. These are some of the methods that we can use to preserve our good deeds and our

00:31:43--> 00:32:21

to preserve our good deeds from being corrupted by bad intentions. And by Rhea, and these two are to make as well, which, which Rasulullah sallallahu. The some tortoise, as the doula for protection from Maria Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said that each of us should make this to Allahumma Indiana, because when a new shreeka because she an Alamo, when is the Lima Allah, Oh Allah, we seek protection in you from committing shellcode you knowingly and we seek your forgiveness, if we do it unknowingly.

00:32:23--> 00:32:26

Right. We seek Allah's forgiveness for committing schilke

00:32:28--> 00:33:17

unknowingly in another version of the dua, is Allahumma, inni, obika and oshika because Allah was the pharaoh God Lima, Allah, Allah, Oh Allah, I seek protection in you from committing shirk, while I know. And I seek your forgiveness, if I do it unknowingly. So these are the doors we should make every day for protection from the corruption of our intentions, we need to take one last break when we return we'll conclude with the Tafseer of surah Ma, Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. We are going to move on now to the final verse of the surah which is why yumna una my own, that they do not look at small, good deed acts of kindness did not consider small acts of kindness is to be

00:33:17--> 00:34:03

important. This is a quality of people who are arrogant or hypocritical, that they do not consider small acts of kindness to be important. This is a very, very powerful verse of drama on because really, it goes back to the social message of the surah that the Suez talks about Salah. But it talks about the fact that that's not the only thing as part of our religion. Unfortunately, nowadays, there are many of us who have limited our practice of Islam, to only the Sala and the acts of Avada. And forget about uchu, about the rights of passage leaves upon us. And we forget that sometimes it takes a small lead to make a big difference in the lives of others, even in our own

00:34:03--> 00:34:04

lives.

00:34:05--> 00:34:48

And interestingly, recently, there's been a lot of research being done in the West, on can money buy happiness, and it's been proven that money can buy happiness when you spend on others. When you spend your money on others, with ease in charity, or just helping out a friend, or any small act of kindness, it has been scientifically proven that it increases your happiness. And this is something that Islam has been teaching us for the past 1400 years. That this is the way of life of a believer. None of you truly believe until you love for your brothers what you love for yourself. That's that is one of the fundamental teachings of our religion. So small acts of kindness for example, giving

00:34:48--> 00:35:00

someone a lift, someone whose cars broken down or you see someone's car, got a flat tire and you stop to help them fix it. Or you know, someone's got a problem and you go ahead and you help them with it. Even if you don't want to

00:35:00--> 00:35:35

Do it but you do it for the sake of Allah. These small acts of kindness have the ability to make a huge difference. Not only do they increase the unity of the oma not only do they help bring us closer to to each other and unite our hearts, but the raise our rank in the afterlife and sometimes all it takes is one small act of kindness to save us from the hellfire. One of the best examples of this is the Hadees mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari about a prostitute from Bani Israel, a woman from Bani Israel, who was known for living a life of Xena.

00:35:36--> 00:36:16

Now, I think for many of us, this is amongst the sins which many of us think is almost unforgivable. Yet this woman once saw a dog which was thirsty, and she used her shoe to give the dog water. She gave the dog water she fed a thirsty dog, not even a person, a dog, a dog, which is an animal, which many Muslims think is a bad animal, right? Many Muslims look at dogs as if there's something bad about them. Because we know an angel does not enter a house in which there is a dog. But her act of kindness towards a dog was enough for Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive her for all her sins,

00:36:17--> 00:36:59

a small act of kindness. And so in sudama, Allah subhanaw taala is telling us Do not overlook the small deeds. Do not overlook the small acts of kindness as these are important. These are important for your own spiritual growth and development. And they are important for making the world a better place you don't know whose life you can change by doing one small good deed for them. Because we live in a day and age where people are so selfish, and people are so caught up in their own worlds, that when somebody does something selflessly to help somebody else, it's it blows people's mind. People can't understand it. It's like, why do they do that? Why would someone help me, and it

00:36:59--> 00:37:14

creates a unity in the heart and loving the heart that, you know, nothing can replace it. And this is how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself won over the hearts of people. If you look at the Dow methodology of Rasulullah, sallAllahu wasallam.

00:37:16--> 00:37:50

He didn't do as much lecturing as we do. For other people flocked to Islam, because of his character, because of the way he interacted with people, because of the small acts of kindness which he did for people. When his neighbor who used to throw dirt in his part got sick, he went to visit the neighbor, a small act of kindness, huge impact. It's things like this, which make the world a better place. It's things like this which make a difference. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:37:51--> 00:38:23

is reminding us in Suramar own that, don't overlook this. It's a quality of the hypocrites overlook this. This is part of our Deen, just like the Sala is part of the deen and we need to play the Salah properly for the sake of Allah with full concentration. Likewise, just like that, doing good deeds for others, helping people out loving for your brothers and sisters. What you love for yourself is also a part of the deen and so,

00:38:24--> 00:38:29

this is the message of Futurama. It is a surah which reminds us

00:38:30--> 00:39:21

that this religion is a complete way of life. It takes care of our spiritual side through salah and thicker and all the other acts of the Buddha and he takes care of all social side as well to charity and small acts of kindness etc. So, this is the message of Suramar own and I hope and pray that we all have benefited from it. inshallah, I hope to see you again soon. Next week, same time when the divine connection understanding the Quran at 9am on Wednesdays next week inshallah we look at surah alcocer and maybe surah copy wound as well, but inshallah Siracusa will go for the full one hour. I know Tony it reverses, but it's very powerful versus inshallah so with that we will conclude for

00:39:21--> 00:39:34

today and I hope to see you all next week. We all know give us all the Tofig to live and understand and practice the Quran. Allah Pharaoh Oscar De Juana and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
