00:00:00--> 00:00:02

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim

00:00:03--> 00:00:05

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen

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

wa Salatu was Salam al atta Manuel Melania. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola he Ultramarine while early he was often the woman who was standing up the Sunette the Yeoman team along the handyman I encounter when the men are limited was evening

00:00:24--> 00:00:30

or at night can resume in a theater I already know about Isla del Breeden. What is OpenEdge Tina?

00:00:31--> 00:00:39

Would you already know me men? Yes, Tammy rune and Coppola very soon, we're bad. Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

00:00:44--> 00:00:54

Last week, we covered the last mean battle or the one that we wanted to speak about prior to

00:00:55--> 00:01:00

the next major battle, and that is the buzzword zap.

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

And that battle that we spoke about last week, what was it? What was it called?

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

Was what

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

Benny ol was pollack.

00:01:13--> 00:01:25

So we mentioned an incident that had occurred on the way back from that battle, where the munafo Goon led by Abdullah even though they had been saluted,

00:01:26--> 00:01:30

how they tried to cause fitna in the ranks of the sahaba.

00:01:32--> 00:01:35

And how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dealt with it.

00:01:38--> 00:01:41

And how he quelled

00:01:42--> 00:01:43

that fitna.

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

However, unfortunately,

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

their efforts did not end there.

00:01:54--> 00:01:59

And so anytime that the hypocrites would find an opportunity, they would jump on it

00:02:01--> 00:02:02

to cause fitna

00:02:03--> 00:02:13

among the believers. So today we move on to talk about another incident that occurred again, on the way back from this reservoir

00:02:15--> 00:02:20

in which the Muna feel cool, again, led by Abdullah

00:02:22--> 00:02:23

bin obey,

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

try to bring harm

00:02:27--> 00:02:35

to the Muslims, but this time, specifically Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his family.

00:02:37--> 00:02:45

And we mentioned last week that this particular battle was different than previous battles, where the hypocrites rarely came out

00:02:47--> 00:02:51

in this particular battle battle, they had come out in a large number.

00:02:53--> 00:02:55

And so, the story that we have today

00:02:57--> 00:03:00

is known as the story of the F

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

or the outrageous slander.

00:03:05--> 00:03:09

The result of this incident was so great

00:03:11--> 00:03:15

that there are so many moves there are so many lessons

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

for the Ummah

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

until the last day

00:03:24--> 00:03:29

it is so great that Allah subhanahu wa Tada revealed yet

00:03:32--> 00:03:35

and they are basically the ayat that we recited in the Salah.

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

So let us go through this

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

incident

00:03:45--> 00:03:46

as narrated

00:03:48--> 00:03:54

firsthand by the one who was involved in it directly

00:03:55--> 00:03:56

and that is none other than

00:03:57--> 00:04:04

the wife of Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

and this story is well established.

00:04:10--> 00:04:13

Eyeshadow the logline had narrates the story herself

00:04:14--> 00:04:19

as found in Sahiwal Buhari in Sahih Muslim and so many other books of Hadith

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

so Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu she says

00:04:27--> 00:04:33

whenever rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was about to go go out on a journey or a battle.

00:04:35--> 00:04:36

He would draw lots

00:04:37--> 00:04:41

among his wives to decide who would accompany him.

00:04:43--> 00:04:46

She says he did so as usual for this

00:04:47--> 00:04:54

expedition of Benny almost tonic. And so my name was drawn. And so he took me with him.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

She says the women on such occasions would

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

heat, light filling foods and they will be lightweight.

00:05:06--> 00:05:12

And so I would sit in my hotel edge, or how there is like a small room

00:05:13--> 00:05:14

or a box

00:05:16--> 00:05:19

that is put on top of the camera. And this is where

00:05:21--> 00:05:24

women and important people would sit.

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

She says

00:05:29--> 00:05:30

I would sit in my heritage

00:05:31--> 00:05:34

while my camel was being prepared and settled.

00:05:36--> 00:05:51

She says, the men responsible for mounting it would then grab this held edge this box while I was in it, and lift it and place it on the camel's back,

00:05:53--> 00:05:54

tying it there with robes.

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

They will then lead the camera Louis.

00:06:00--> 00:06:00

On that journey.

00:06:02--> 00:06:09

She says when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had completed that journey meaning this reservoir of bunions Pollock,

00:06:10--> 00:06:14

he directed the army to return home. So now they're on their way back.

00:06:16--> 00:06:20

Then close to an Medina. He stopped

00:06:21--> 00:06:22

for a part of the night.

00:06:24--> 00:06:25

So they stopped here

00:06:26--> 00:06:27

to get some rest.

00:06:28--> 00:06:35

Then she says, a caller called out for the people to depart again, to get ready and continue the journey.

00:06:38--> 00:06:42

And so the people started to get ready to go back to continue the journey.

00:06:43--> 00:06:49

She says, I went out to relieve myself to go away and

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

to use the toilet.

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

And she says

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

I happen to be wearing a necklace

00:06:59--> 00:07:02

of gym, gems and stones.

00:07:03--> 00:07:08

And when I had finished it slipped from my neck without my knowledge.

00:07:09--> 00:07:12

And then I returned to the campsite.

00:07:13--> 00:07:14

And I felt for it.

00:07:15--> 00:07:18

And I realized it's not around my neck.

00:07:19--> 00:07:29

She says people were beginning to leave. But I went back to the police I had been to search for the necklace. And I eventually found it.

00:07:31--> 00:07:47

She says the men who had now finished saddling my camel, the lifted the whole dodge thinking that I was inside as usual. And they tied it to the camera. They had no doubt that I was in it.

00:07:49--> 00:07:49

Because

00:07:51--> 00:07:54

when she mentioned in the beginning that we were lightweight it

00:07:57--> 00:08:03

we were lightweight it so they took the camel by the head and lead it away.

00:08:05--> 00:08:09

She says when I returned to the campsite, there was absolutely no one there.

00:08:11--> 00:08:12

Everyone had left.

00:08:14--> 00:08:18

She says so I wrapped myself up in my cloak. And I laid down

00:08:20--> 00:08:23

and I was sure that they would eventually return for me when they realized that I was missing.

00:08:25--> 00:08:26

She says I went to sleep.

00:08:28--> 00:08:29

She says

00:08:32--> 00:08:33

I was laying there.

00:08:34--> 00:08:52

When someone had been unwell been a tsunami. One of the companions. He came by she says for some reason on his own. He had been lagging behind the other fighters and he had not spent the night with them.

00:08:54--> 00:08:56

When he saw my form, he approached me

00:08:57--> 00:09:00

and he had seen me before the hijab

00:09:01--> 00:09:04

meaning the hijab was legislated later.

00:09:07--> 00:09:21

She says when he saw me, he said in alila you know your laundry room? Isn't this the woman sitting in the whole dej of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. She says at that point I woke up.

00:09:22--> 00:09:35

I was all wrapped up in my cloak. He then asked me what made you to stay behind? May Allah have mercy on you? She says I did not speak a word. Nor did he say anything after that.

00:09:36--> 00:09:51

He then brought his camera to me and said get onto it. And then he moved away so that I could mount it. And then he led the camera away. Moving quickly to catch up with the rest.

00:09:52--> 00:09:53

She continues

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

then he left the camera where till we reached the army at noon while they were taking a rest

00:10:03--> 00:10:14

because of this incident, some people brought destruction upon themselves. And the one who spread the slander the most was Abdullah ibn Obi a bin Salman.

00:10:15--> 00:10:19

However, I swear I knew nothing of this.

00:10:20--> 00:10:22

What I showed her the Allahu anha is saying

00:10:24--> 00:10:26

is that when she reached

00:10:28--> 00:10:31

the rest of the army when they had reached the two of them,

00:10:33--> 00:10:39

the munafo Goon, seeing that the two of them are coming all by themselves, immediately.

00:10:41--> 00:10:54

As we said, whenever they will look for an opportunity, they will jump on it. And so they started to spread this lander. You know, I showed you along Reinhardt and so one, a soft one had been a remarkable

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

one, we're having an affair.

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

She says, however, I swear I knew nothing about it.

00:11:03--> 00:11:15

The whole time these Rumors are spreading, and she has no clue. She says We then went on to Medina. There I soon fell seriously sick. And again, she says, I heard nothing of what was going on.

00:11:16--> 00:11:25

She says, all the talk soon reached her sort of Allah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and my parents. But they told me absolutely nothing of it.

00:11:26--> 00:11:34

All that I had noticed was that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not as kind, as usual towards me.

00:11:35--> 00:11:41

Whenever I had been sick, he had been very kind and comforting to me. But not this time.

00:11:42--> 00:11:54

I pretended not to notice. When he came and saw me, my mother being present, taking care of me. He would just formally ask, how is she doing?

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

And he wouldn't say anything more than that.

00:11:58--> 00:12:07

She goes on to say, eventually, this coldness of his bothered me. So I asked him, all Messenger of Allah,

00:12:09--> 00:12:23

if you will allow it, then I would like to go and stay with my mother to have her care for me. Meaning until now she was staying in her house, the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but

00:12:24--> 00:12:39

she wasn't feeling comfortable anymore. And so she said, Will you allow me to go and stay with my mother? So the process of longer it was said and said no problem. She says, so I moved in with my mother. I still had no knowledge of what was going on.

00:12:40--> 00:12:45

Until I recovered from my illness, some three weeks later.

00:12:46--> 00:12:51

So almost a month goes by. And these rumors are going around.

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

She goes on to say

00:12:55--> 00:13:15

we would go out a bit far and use the open areas in the outskirts of Medina, to answer the call of nature to use the toilet. Each night. The women would go out to relieve themselves and went out to do so one night, accompanied by Mr.

00:13:16--> 00:13:22

The daughter of Abu Roshan, even a makan Ibn Al Muttalib, even abdomen.

00:13:23--> 00:13:26

So one of the women of the MaHA Giro

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

and she was a noble righteous woman.

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

So how shallow the Allahu Allah says,

00:13:34--> 00:13:39

I went with her, we're going out. And she was walking with me when she tripped over her gown.

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

And then she cursed her son.

00:13:44--> 00:13:48

She says, me, Mr. Parrish.

00:13:50--> 00:13:58

I said, that is a terrible thing to say about a Mahajan. And the man who fought that burden

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

on the spy, she she says,

00:14:06--> 00:14:09

has the news not reach you? Oh daughter of Abu Bakar

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

I said What News?

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

She then told me

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

what those spreading the slander were saying.

00:14:21--> 00:14:22

So I said is this really so?

00:14:23--> 00:14:26

She said yes. It is really. So

00:14:28--> 00:14:30

Aisha Radi Allahu Ahad hadden says.

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

I swear I was so upset.

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

I could not do my business and I went home.

00:14:38--> 00:14:42

I cried so much that I thought that my crying would burst my liver.

00:14:44--> 00:14:45

And I told my mother,

00:14:46--> 00:14:52

may Allah forgive you for not telling me anything about what the people have been saying about me.

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

So she said her mother said to her,

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

she said, Don't take it so seriously, daughter

00:15:00--> 00:15:19

rarely does a beautiful woman with a husband who loves her. Not have her co wives and others to speak badly about her. What she's saying here is, it's expected. You're beautiful, you have co wives who are going to be jealous. So, such

00:15:20--> 00:15:22

rumors are expected.

00:15:23--> 00:15:28

She goes on to say, rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then

00:15:29--> 00:15:32

gathered the people in the masjid.

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

And he stood on the member

00:15:36--> 00:15:39

and he addressed the people on this subject.

00:15:40--> 00:15:41

She says,

00:15:43--> 00:15:50

but I didn't know about it. She says, He prays a long time to Allah that He said, Why is it

00:15:51--> 00:15:56

that people are troubling me about my family and speaking lies about them?

00:15:57--> 00:16:00

I swear by Allah I know nothing but good of them.

00:16:02--> 00:16:19

And they are saying the same about a man whom I have never known anything but good. He has never entered any of my homes without me being in his company. Here it was always all Solomon's referring to so one, probably a lot right.

00:16:22--> 00:16:29

It's all he was saying that I don't know anything except good. About my wife Aisha and this man so one.

00:16:32--> 00:16:39

Aisha Radi Allahu Akbar. She says the greatest blame for this lender was Abdullah ibn obey.

00:16:41--> 00:16:45

Some men from an huzzah Raj and Miss Bosch

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

and Hannah, beat Josh

00:16:52--> 00:16:53

who has him now.

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

She was

00:16:58--> 00:17:01

the sister of another wife of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:17:03--> 00:17:06

Zenon be trajection, or the Aloha

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

and so

00:17:09--> 00:17:20

I shall not be allowed to Hang Hang says Xena was the only one of his wives who raveled my who rivaled my status with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

But Allah saved her.

00:17:25--> 00:17:33

Meaning Allah saved Xena but only Allah Allah from that evil because of her piety, her righteousness.

00:17:34--> 00:17:36

She only spoke good about me.

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

So when this was going on,

00:17:40--> 00:17:47

she was praising it showed she didn't get involved with the rest. Even though

00:17:50--> 00:17:53

you know, being a khoy co wife,

00:17:54--> 00:18:01

that natural jealousy is there, and she could have, she could have easily have gotten involved.

00:18:03--> 00:18:09

But she didn't die shortly along with her says, Allah saved her from that evil because of her

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

build and her righteousness.

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

But she says, however, have now

00:18:17--> 00:18:22

spread the rumors about me to do harm to me for her sister sake.

00:18:25--> 00:18:26

And so I suffered for that.

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

Then she goes on to say,

00:18:31--> 00:18:33

when I saw the lion sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:18:35--> 00:18:37

made this address

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

to the Companions he was on the member and he was speaking to them

00:18:42--> 00:18:43

sad it'd been wild

00:18:45--> 00:18:50

who was one of the heads of an else he gets up. And he says

00:18:53--> 00:18:57

if they were from allows, meaning those who are spreading this woman,

00:18:58--> 00:19:03

then ya rasool Allah, we will deal with them for you will take care of them will punish them.

00:19:05--> 00:19:11

But if they are from our brothers from 100 Then you give us your order.

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

And if you say

00:19:15--> 00:19:16

to cut off their heads, we will do it

00:19:19--> 00:19:20

so

00:19:23--> 00:19:31

now sad had been regarded who was one of the heads of the huzzah Raj. He gets up

00:19:33--> 00:19:44

and he says you lie. I swear by Allah you would certainly not cut off their heads. And you only made that statement because you knew that they were from an huzzah ranch.

00:19:46--> 00:19:47

Abdullah ibn obey

00:19:49--> 00:19:54

is from which one and also Al Hasan he is from a cartridge.

00:19:55--> 00:19:58

He says otherwise you you will not have said

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

so

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

Now

00:20:02--> 00:20:08

someone from an owes the cousin of Sajid in white. He gets up to speed a bit later.

00:20:10--> 00:20:16

And he says it is you who lie I swear by Allah you are a hypocrite arguing on behalf of the hypocrites.

00:20:18--> 00:20:22

So people became angry. And I'll also have such

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

a fight was about to break out between

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

imagine

00:20:29--> 00:20:34

these are some of the best among the companions sad had been

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

sad in general dad will say even Hawaii

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

and yet once again

00:20:43--> 00:20:45

a fitna was about to break out

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

between the Companions

00:20:48--> 00:20:54

as had been previously as we mentioned last week, as they were coming back to El Medina.

00:20:56--> 00:20:57

I shot on the Allahu Anhu continues

00:21:00--> 00:21:07

Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then called for Ali ibn Abi polymicrobial, Loggerhead and Oussama. It'd be insane

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

and consulted them about me.

00:21:11--> 00:21:16

Because these two companions were close to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his family.

00:21:17--> 00:21:29

She says Osama spoke well about me, and then said Yeah, rasool Allah. This is about your family, about whom we know nothing but good. This is all foolish lives.

00:21:31--> 00:21:35

And then it had been abused, bonded or the love behind. He said O Messenger of Allah.

00:21:36--> 00:21:40

There are plenty of women, you can exchange them.

00:21:42--> 00:21:46

But ask the slave girl, and she will speak the truth to you.

00:21:49--> 00:21:52

There was a slave girl who would help out I showed her the Allahu Hydra

00:21:53--> 00:21:55

in the chores at home.

00:21:57--> 00:22:03

And so this is someone who knows her and knows everything about her life. So let's bring her as a witness.

00:22:04--> 00:22:07

So Rasulullah sallallahu some called her What was her name?

00:22:08--> 00:22:08

But Iran.

00:22:11--> 00:22:14

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Albury Iran.

00:22:15--> 00:22:18

Did you ever see anything which arouse your suspicion?

00:22:20--> 00:22:29

But he replied, I swear by Allah, I know nothing but good about her. I have never found fault with Ayesha at all. Except

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

that when I need though,

00:22:33--> 00:22:40

and I asked her to watch over it, she may fall asleep and then the goats will come and eat it.

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

I shadow the Allahu Anhu he said,

00:22:46--> 00:22:49

rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then came to me.

00:22:52--> 00:22:57

And at this time, I had been with both of my parents, and there was another on Saudi work.

00:23:00--> 00:23:01

I was crying and so when she

00:23:03--> 00:23:08

then he sat down. He prays to Allah, he turned to Allah and then he said, Oh, are you sure?

00:23:10--> 00:23:14

You have heard about what the people have been saying about you?

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

Fear Allah.

00:23:17--> 00:23:21

If you had indeed done some wrong, as they say that repent to Allah.

00:23:22--> 00:23:25

Allah accepts a repentance from His servants.

00:23:27--> 00:23:31

She says, As soon as he said this, my tears have dried up so that I could feel none of that.

00:23:34--> 00:23:37

I waited for my parents to respond back on my behalf.

00:23:39--> 00:23:40

But they did not speak.

00:23:41--> 00:23:44

She says, I swear by Allah.

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

I knew myself as being innocent.

00:23:49--> 00:23:57

and Allah knew that I was innocent. But I felt myself as being unimportant,

00:23:59--> 00:24:02

insignificant for Allah.

00:24:03--> 00:24:08

To send even one area to the Prophet sallallahu Hallein was telling them

00:24:09--> 00:24:12

about me, one that would be recited

00:24:14--> 00:24:17

by the believers, and in there's a lot to a day of juggling.

00:24:19--> 00:24:47

She says, but I had hoped that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would have some vision, a dream, but which Allah would prove my innocence from his knowledge of my innocence, and would give him the parcel some some information. But as for an idea of the Quran to be revealed about me, I swear I felt too insignificant for that.

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

She goes on to say

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

when I saw that my parents were not replying on my behalf.

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

I asked them

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

Will you not reply to Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

They said by Allah, we don't know what to say.

00:25:09--> 00:25:17

She says, I swear I do not know any household that ever suffered so much as that Abubakar.

00:25:18--> 00:25:23

Through those days, it's all the entire family was suffering.

00:25:24--> 00:25:27

Here you have a Boubacar on your walk with his wife.

00:25:28--> 00:25:31

Even they don't know what to do. Even they don't know what to say.

00:25:33--> 00:25:38

She says when they were unable to respond for me, I burst out crying again.

00:25:39--> 00:25:57

Then I said, By Allah, I will never repent to Allah for what you claim. I swear I know that if I were to admit what the people are saying, while Allah knew me to be innocent of it, I will be admitting something that had not happened.

00:25:59--> 00:26:03

But if I were to deny what they say, then you will not believe me.

00:26:06--> 00:26:15

I then tried to remember the name of Yahoo. She says, I shall know the Allahu Anhu says, I was young. And I had not

00:26:16--> 00:26:17

memorize the Quran.

00:26:18--> 00:26:22

But I knew of the story of Yaqoob and Yusuf.

00:26:23--> 00:26:27

And I remember the words of Yaqoob What did he say?

00:26:29--> 00:27:01

She says, but I will speak as did the father of use of for sovereign, Jamil Walla homestyle, right on mental suffering. I can only endure with beautiful patients. It is Allah's help that I seek to bear your claims and accusations. This is what Yaqoob had said. When his sons had come with the lie of the wolf eating use of it.

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

She goes on to say,

00:27:05--> 00:27:08

I swear the Messenger of Allah had not left his seat

00:27:10--> 00:27:11

at that moment,

00:27:13--> 00:27:17

before Allah sitting down upon him what he needs to send of the way.

00:27:19--> 00:27:24

She says he was wrapped in his cloak, and a pillow of leather was placed beneath his head.

00:27:26--> 00:27:32

As for myself, when I witnessed this, I swear I felt no shock. I wasn't surprised.

00:27:37--> 00:27:54

I knew that I was innocent and that Allah would not hurt me harmed me. However, I swear by him who bears the soul of Russia, that as soon as the messenger of Allah recovered, basically the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whenever there was he would come down.

00:27:56--> 00:27:57

He would not be in a normal state.

00:28:01--> 00:28:04

He would sweat even if it was cold day.

00:28:05--> 00:28:07

And the way he would be extremely heavy.

00:28:09--> 00:28:17

Like they are the one where it says that once I was with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And his knee was on my thigh.

00:28:18--> 00:28:24

And the way he came down, and it felt as if my thigh was going to crush from the weight.

00:28:26--> 00:28:31

That is the weight of the Quran. As Allah says in national periodica I wouldn't say

00:28:32--> 00:28:36

we're going to reveal to you a heavy word. So anyways,

00:28:39--> 00:28:43

she says, As soon as the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam had recovered,

00:28:45--> 00:28:48

I thought that my parents would faint, out of fear.

00:28:50--> 00:28:55

That confirmation of what the people were seeing, was going to come through from Allah.

00:28:56--> 00:29:00

She says, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hatha Yoga covered

00:29:02--> 00:29:23

his face streamed with droplets like a winter day, he was sweating. And he began to wipe the sweat from his face. And he looked at me and he said, A B C. D, Aisha rejoice or Arusha, and he was laughing. He was smiling. And he said, Allah, the Almighty.

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

And all glorious is he has sat down contribution of your innocence.

00:29:31--> 00:29:35

So I said, All praise belongs to Allah.

00:29:36--> 00:29:44

Then he went to, to address the people reciting to them what Allah had revealed from the Quran on that letter.

00:29:47--> 00:29:47

And so

00:29:49--> 00:29:52

this was all narrated by Aisha Radi Allahu Allah.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

In a different narration. It says that, when these ayat were revealed

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave her the good news. The mother of Asia. Remember she was sitting there?

00:30:08--> 00:30:12

She said to her, You shall go attack consoled allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:30:14--> 00:30:19

So are you sure? She said, No, I will not do that. I will only thank Allah

00:30:22--> 00:30:23

that's all it was ALLAH who

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

revealed her innocence.

00:30:28--> 00:30:31

And so, let us go through these act

00:30:34--> 00:30:36

as they are mentioned in surah

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:30:41--> 00:30:44

in the ladina Jabu Bill 50 euros that to me,

00:30:45--> 00:30:50

matter Cebu chakra lagoon Bill who are hydro liquid,

00:30:51--> 00:30:59

liquid limited in mineral mcta Samuel Ethan will Edita wala Kibera who mean whom? Who either Abu Dhabi,

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

indeed those who came up with the outrageous slander, that if

00:31:06--> 00:31:08

they are a group among you,

00:31:09--> 00:31:11

do not think this is bad for you.

00:31:12--> 00:31:14

Rather, it is good for you.

00:31:16--> 00:31:20

They will be punished, each according to their share of the same

00:31:21--> 00:31:35

as for their mastermind. Vitola Tibro, this is referring to Abdullah ibn obey, he will suffer a tremendous punishment. And so there is good that came out of this incident.

00:31:37--> 00:31:39

Allah here is saying

00:31:40--> 00:31:42

don't look at it as being something evil, something that

00:31:44--> 00:31:48

a lot of good comes out from the suffering that Allah puts us through.

00:31:50--> 00:31:56

This is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we're talking about here. He had to suffer.

00:31:57--> 00:32:04

To see his wife. She had to suffer the best of the companions or boubakeur on the Allah why he had to suffer.

00:32:07--> 00:32:22

And right from the very beginning of the ayat, Allah says, right from the very beginning, don't think that it is something bad, there is good in it. And so what is the good innit? Through this? The Muna raccoon were exposed

00:32:23--> 00:32:24

through this,

00:32:25--> 00:32:26

the rank

00:32:27--> 00:32:31

of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and Aisha was elevated.

00:32:33--> 00:32:38

And we know that whenever Allah puts us through suffering and difficulties, it is Therese our rank.

00:32:42--> 00:32:49

Also, the good that has come out of it is now we have come and rulings

00:32:50--> 00:33:00

to deal with similar situations until the day of judgment, because similar incidents will always occur among the believers.

00:33:02--> 00:33:05

So we have to know what to do on such occasions.

00:33:08--> 00:33:19

Yes, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suffered a lot. I hate your shirt or the Allahu Han has suffered a lot. But the OMA benefited from that. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:33:20--> 00:33:25

Lola in Samara to move on and Mina Mina to the unforeseen firearm.

00:33:27--> 00:33:28

While all who heard it

00:33:30--> 00:33:34

is only the believing men and women had thought well

00:33:35--> 00:33:36

of one another.

00:33:37--> 00:33:38

When you heard this rumor,

00:33:40--> 00:33:42

you should have said this is clearly

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

an outrageous lie.

00:33:47--> 00:33:48

It's all

00:33:49--> 00:33:53

Muslims should care for the reputation of

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

their fellow Muslims and think good of them.

00:33:58--> 00:34:03

This is something that is last day. Sometimes you find

00:34:04--> 00:34:08

that there are Muslims who they become happy

00:34:09--> 00:34:12

when they hear about so and so suffering.

00:34:15--> 00:34:17

It is not how we have to be.

00:34:18--> 00:34:19

We shouldn't

00:34:20--> 00:34:21

rejoice

00:34:22--> 00:34:34

over you know, something bad that happens to our fellow brothers and sisters. Allah subhana wa Tada is basically telling us here that this applies to the entire ummah.

00:34:36--> 00:34:40

We have a duty not to believe in rumors.

00:34:41--> 00:34:43

We have to call such rumors what

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

lies as Allah says.

00:34:49--> 00:34:55

You should have called it what it is a blatant lie and outrageous slander and not believe in it.

00:34:56--> 00:34:58

Then Allah subhanahu wa Tada says

00:34:59--> 00:34:59

lo

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

Will Agia UI be auto da to Shuhada?

00:35:04--> 00:35:06

So EDM yet to be Shuhada if it would

00:35:07--> 00:35:13

bring the lahi who will be born? Why did they not produce four witnesses?

00:35:15--> 00:35:22

Now since they have failed to produce witnesses, these people are truly liars in the sight of Allah.

00:35:26--> 00:35:31

In the beginning of Surah, to know before these ayat, Allah subhana wa Taala tells us

00:35:33--> 00:35:38

that we have to produce for witnesses, if we're going to make such an accusation.

00:35:40--> 00:35:47

And whenever someone doesn't do that, he makes the accusation but he doesn't bring four witnesses. He is to be punished.

00:35:51--> 00:35:56

And here Allah says, because they haven't produced those four witnesses, what are they? They are liars in the sight of Allah?

00:35:58--> 00:36:16

Then Allah says, Allah will follow what he Alikum warahmatu who can dunya will You naughty? Now Mr. Cohen, female for up to infinity either guna we had not been for Allah's grace and mercy upon you in this dunya and the next, you would have certainly been touched with a tremendous punishment for what you had plunged into.

00:36:19--> 00:36:20

showing us how great

00:36:22--> 00:36:25

and serious such a slander is in the sight of Allah.

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

Then Allah says

00:36:29--> 00:36:54

it terracotta who will be elsina Tickle, what are called Luna be of where he commands and I couldn't be here. What I saguna who had yin and Wahoo and Allah when when you passed it from one tongue to the other, and said, with your mounds, what you had no knowledge of taking it lightly. While it is extremely serious, in the sight of Allah

00:36:57--> 00:36:58

carelessly,

00:37:00--> 00:37:04

hearing a rumor that spreading it to somebody else. Allah says here

00:37:06--> 00:37:08

that we should not do such things.

00:37:10--> 00:37:13

Why would a Muslim do such a thing? Because as Allah says, You're

00:37:15--> 00:37:20

with AXA Guna. Who hygiene and you think it's something like it's not a big deal?

00:37:22--> 00:37:49

Well, who and Elia women get into huge and serious in the sight of Allah. Then Allah says, well, Lola, it's similar to Moo hoo cool to know your Kulu Lana Aneta Kela, maybe Harada. So the Hannukah Bhutan on a whim. If only you had said when you had heard it, how can we speak such a thing? Glory be to You, oh Allah. This is a hideous slander.

00:37:52--> 00:37:55

It's mentioned that Ebola you been on Saudi Arabia.

00:37:57--> 00:37:59

His wife came to him

00:38:00--> 00:38:03

and told him about the rumors that were spreading.

00:38:05--> 00:38:07

So he responded by saying

00:38:09--> 00:38:24

he responded by saying, Maya kulula Anna and Nicola, maybe others would have had a Bhutan and are we how can we speak such a thing? Glory be to You, oh Allah. This is a Heaney of slander.

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

It's will Allah reveal this area? As a result of the statement of Abu EWB alongside in another narration, he replied by saying, Yes, I have heard and it is a lie.

00:38:40--> 00:38:52

And then he said to her, would you do something similar? On a YouTube? She said by Allah never. So he said, then by Allah, I che is better than you.

00:38:53--> 00:38:54

And then she said yes.

00:38:55--> 00:38:57

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:38:59--> 00:39:05

yeah, he will come Allahu Atarot duly meetly he added an incontinent meaning when you begin Hola Hola.

00:39:07--> 00:39:16

Hola. Hola. Hola, Iman, Hakeem, Allah forbids you from ever doing something like this ever again? If you are indeed believers,

00:39:17--> 00:39:42

and Allah makes his commandments, is that clear to you? For Allah is the All Knowing the all wise. And so here Allah is telling us that we should not spread such rumors. Muslims should not have any time for this nonsense. We shouldn't go around listening to such hearsay and spreading it around.

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

But rather we should be spending our time wisely.

00:39:47--> 00:39:54

Then Allah subhana wa Tada says, in the Ladino, you should buena and Tashi Alpha Heisha to feel that you know every

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

element in dunya will. Allah Who Yeah, and I'm going to let alone

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

We, indeed those who love to see a fascia in decency in morality,

00:40:10--> 00:40:10

these

00:40:13--> 00:40:15

slanders, of Xena,

00:40:18--> 00:40:33

those who love to see that this spreads among the believers, those who have a desire to see the spreading among the believers, Allah says, they will suffer a painful punishment in this life and the next. And Allah knows, and you do not know.

00:40:34--> 00:40:35

And so

00:40:37--> 00:40:38

Muslims should not

00:40:39--> 00:40:43

talk about such immoral things and spread it

00:40:44--> 00:40:45

sometimes

00:40:48--> 00:40:50

some Muslim Sikh, and they talk about

00:40:51--> 00:40:56

the facade that exists in Muslim Societies.

00:40:57--> 00:40:59

You know, talking about affairs,

00:41:00--> 00:41:05

even if they're not talking about specific incidents.

00:41:07--> 00:41:15

They think it's not a big deal to talk about, you know, in this Muslim society in this Muslim country, there's so much that goes on underground.

00:41:17--> 00:41:20

And so, they bring up all of these examples.

00:41:22--> 00:41:24

And sometimes beyond what is necessary.

00:41:27--> 00:41:31

And that's because some people actually enjoy talking about such immoral things.

00:41:33--> 00:41:35

They have a certain attraction towards.

00:41:37--> 00:41:39

So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada warns us, for

00:41:40--> 00:41:46

those who like that immorality and fascia spreads among the believers.

00:41:49--> 00:41:51

And it should be publicized

00:41:52--> 00:41:57

among the Muslims, they will have a painful punishment in the dunya, and the next.

00:41:59--> 00:42:00

And so

00:42:05--> 00:42:22

those who like to spread such things, it's not because they want to put a stop to it. But rather just because they like talking about such things, to fulfill this desire of taunting, and all these things. And so it shows us how dangerous that is.

00:42:24--> 00:42:40

Obviously, if there is a certain evil, you know, that is prevalent in a certain community, and a certain society we should do in car of that. Right? That's part of in car and worker

00:42:42--> 00:42:43

prohibiting the evil.

00:42:44--> 00:42:45

But

00:42:47--> 00:42:51

sometimes, wisdom dictates that

00:42:53--> 00:42:55

nobody knows that this is going on.

00:42:56--> 00:43:02

Right? Especially matters related to Xena and other immoral things. Why?

00:43:03--> 00:43:04

Because

00:43:05--> 00:43:13

the more we talk about it, and the more people hear about it, the more we start believing that society is corrupt.

00:43:15--> 00:43:17

And the more the people will start acting

00:43:19--> 00:43:21

like how they believe the community is.

00:43:23--> 00:43:25

Especially the youngsters

00:43:26--> 00:43:31

don't think everything is fine. You know, if I do this, it's not a big deal. Everyone's doing it. Right.

00:43:33--> 00:43:33

And so

00:43:35--> 00:43:47

this is from among the wisdoms why we should not spread such things if we happen to know that it's happening. But as I said, there's a fine line between that and forbidding the evil.

00:43:49--> 00:43:52

Right? If something is going on, we need to

00:43:53--> 00:44:10

you know, make it known that this is going on, and we need to permit it. This comes under in Cottonwood. And so we want to strike a balance. And then Allah subhanahu Italie says, Whenever we have a blue lock, you have a Komodo to who what an Allaha or Ufa Rahim

00:44:11--> 00:44:12

had it not been for

00:44:13--> 00:44:15

Allah is great grace and his mercy upon you.

00:44:16--> 00:44:28

And had Allah not not been ever Gracious, Most Merciful? Meaning if Allah had not been merciful towards you, then you would have suffered even more.

00:44:30--> 00:44:33

Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you heard

00:44:35--> 00:44:37

that term, you know who to where to shame

00:44:38--> 00:44:49

when they used to be or who to work to shaytani for in Abuja, Monroeville fascia even Mancha. Oh, you who believe. Do not follow the footsteps of shaitan

00:44:51--> 00:44:58

whoever follows the footsteps of shaitan then let them know that he surely commands

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

and

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

fascia in morality and decency and wickedness.

00:45:06--> 00:45:09

It's all here ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is warning us

00:45:10--> 00:45:12

that these are the footsteps of Shaitan.

00:45:15--> 00:45:17

Shaitan never comes

00:45:18--> 00:45:21

to us to the believers directly,

00:45:22--> 00:45:24

saying, for example,

00:45:25--> 00:45:29

commit Zina, when he knows that your Eman will prevent you from doing that.

00:45:31--> 00:45:34

And so he has steps

00:45:36--> 00:45:41

that he lures you into the final act through these steps.

00:45:42--> 00:45:51

And that's why we find in our Sharia, that so many different laws, Allah has legislated to prevent that final thing from happening.

00:45:53--> 00:45:54

It is because

00:45:56--> 00:45:58

of the danger of this act, that we have

00:46:00--> 00:46:00

hijab

00:46:01--> 00:46:23

it is because of this that we have the prohibition of freely mixing men between women. There's a separation. It's because of this that Allah commands the believing men and believing women to lower their gaze. All of these things have been put in place to prevent an fascia from spreading and prevent the Muslims from falling into that

00:46:24--> 00:46:38

because all of these are steps and Allah is telling us here do not follow in the footsteps have shaved on because shave time doesn't command anything but a fascia when when older fumble while he Alico

00:46:39--> 00:46:53

wash made to whom has a Kameen commit, added Aveda. Well, I didn't know he was a key Manisha, alongside me and Eileen, had it not been for Allah's grace and mercy upon you. None of you would have ever been purified.

00:46:54--> 00:46:59

But Allah purifies whomever he wills and Allah is the All Hearing the All Knowing.

00:47:04--> 00:47:13

being purified refers to being clean and purified from acts of indecency and immorality

00:47:15--> 00:47:16

and then fascia.

00:47:18--> 00:47:20

So an fascia is evil and filthy.

00:47:23--> 00:47:24

And here Allah is saying

00:47:26--> 00:47:36

that he purifies us, the believers. And if it was not for Allah purifying us, we would never have been purified. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:47:37--> 00:47:45

What does it tell you all for believing come wasa? And up to the quarterback? Whether my Sakeena Well, mohajir enough, Isa vilella

00:47:47--> 00:47:50

Do not let the people of virtue

00:47:51--> 00:47:54

and the rich among you.

00:47:55--> 00:48:09

Don't let them to swear to suspend giving generously, to the relatives to the needy, and the Mojave rune in the Cause of Allah

00:48:12--> 00:48:18

while you are full while you're special, instead let them pardon and let them forgive.

00:48:21--> 00:48:22

allowed to hit buena

00:48:23--> 00:48:30

and you'll hear Hola Hola, como? Will Allahu Allah for Rahim do not want and love

00:48:31--> 00:48:33

to be forgiven by Allah.

00:48:34--> 00:48:37

And Allah is the all Forgiving, the Most Merciful.

00:48:40--> 00:48:41

Who is this idea talking about?

00:48:44--> 00:48:47

It's talking about a book or the alumni.

00:48:48--> 00:48:49

Miss boy

00:48:51--> 00:48:52

who was that companion

00:48:54--> 00:49:06

who fell into the slider. And he was one of those who was talking about it. We mentioned him earlier. His mother was the one who broke the news to write shadow the alumni her

00:49:08--> 00:49:12

Miss bowhead was from the Mojave room, and he was poor.

00:49:14--> 00:49:18

And he was also a relative of Abu Bakr Obi Wan right.

00:49:19--> 00:49:24

And Abu Bakr was the one who was spending upon him fulfilling his financial needs.

00:49:25--> 00:49:37

So when Abu Bakr found out that this man was the one talking about his daughter, he became very upset and he swore by Allah, he will stop spending money on him.

00:49:38--> 00:49:45

So here, Allah is instructing Abu Bakr Radi Allahu, and likes of him

00:49:48--> 00:49:50

to not do such a thing.

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

Allah says, Don't let the people have virtue and riches. And this is actually a praise of Abu Bakar

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

Without a lot praise him as a person of virtue.

00:50:03--> 00:50:07

Don't let them to swear that they will stop spending

00:50:09--> 00:50:17

on the poor and the needy and the MaHA Joon and their close relatives. And instead, let them pardon and let them overlook.

00:50:19--> 00:50:22

And then Allah says would not like that Allah would forgive you.

00:50:23--> 00:50:37

And so when a goober Kuroiwa I heard this area. He said, Yes, by Allah, I would love for Allah to forgive me that you went back to spending on him. And he said that he would never stop until the day he died.

00:50:38--> 00:50:39

And that's exactly what happened.

00:50:40--> 00:50:41

And so

00:50:44--> 00:50:45

look at once again

00:50:48--> 00:50:50

the Eman of a MOBA karate alumni,

00:50:52--> 00:50:57

and how he did not allow his ego to get in the way

00:50:58--> 00:50:59

between

00:51:00--> 00:51:01

himself and

00:51:03--> 00:51:05

what Allah has revealed.

00:51:06--> 00:51:07

Instead, he submitted

00:51:08--> 00:51:10

you know, it's tough, it's difficult.

00:51:12--> 00:51:23

Most people they're not able to overcome such a thing, that you spoke about me and about my family you slandered. And you did whatever you did to me bringing so much harm on me.

00:51:25--> 00:51:26

But yet,

00:51:28--> 00:51:35

when he realized that this is more beloved to Allah, he immediately submitted to what is more beloved to Allah.

00:51:36--> 00:51:39

And so we will suffice with mentioning these ayat.

00:51:42--> 00:51:42

And

00:51:45--> 00:51:48

Subhan Allah think about it, what did I show the Allah when I say

00:51:53--> 00:52:01

she had said that she thought herself to be too insignificant for Allah to send even one idea, even one idea

00:52:03--> 00:52:05

to declare her innocent.

00:52:06--> 00:52:08

But yeah, all of these I had.

00:52:10--> 00:52:12

Allah revealed in her defense.

00:52:15--> 00:52:20

So now what happened to those who are involved in spreading the slander?

00:52:21--> 00:52:23

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:52:25--> 00:52:49

earlier on it's sort of to know well Adina your mood and so on and so madam yet to be order it through adapt. For God to home Santa in agenda, what I'm talking about who would have shared it and another what would I eat or whom will fast the whole inland lady in a town taboo invalid, Erica was rattled, for in Allaha la foto Rahim,

00:52:50--> 00:52:53

those who accused the chaste women

00:52:54--> 00:52:58

of Zina and they failed to produce for witnesses,

00:52:59--> 00:53:01

give them ad lashes

00:53:02--> 00:53:06

and do not accept their testimony ever.

00:53:07--> 00:53:11

So they are their testimony has no value.

00:53:13--> 00:53:28

For they are indeed from among the faster, the rebellious but then Allah says except for those who repent after that, and then they fix their ways that surely Allah is the author giving the Most Merciful

00:53:30--> 00:53:30

and so

00:53:31--> 00:53:32

Mr.

00:53:35--> 00:53:37

And another companion has said it'd been sad it

00:53:39--> 00:53:42

they were flogged, they were lashed. They were given this punishment.

00:53:45--> 00:53:47

And whoever else was involved

00:53:49--> 00:53:50

except for

00:53:52--> 00:53:53

Abdullah AB OB

00:53:57--> 00:54:02

even though he was the source of the slander,

00:54:04--> 00:54:07

and he was the mastermind, as Allah mentions,

00:54:08--> 00:54:10

what led Etowah, Lackey, brown middle,

00:54:11--> 00:54:19

the One Who is the mastermind in spreading this. So the question is, why was he spared?

00:54:20--> 00:54:21

Ibrahim?

00:54:22--> 00:54:27

He gives a few possibilities. He mentioned in that demand.

00:54:28--> 00:54:29

He says either

00:54:31--> 00:54:34

because the punishment in this dunya for crimes.

00:54:36--> 00:54:37

It is a Farah.

00:54:38--> 00:54:42

It is, you know, a compensation for the sin in the dunya.

00:54:44--> 00:54:51

So whoever gets their punishment in the dunya for whatever crime may be, and he sincerely repent to Allah,

00:54:52--> 00:54:53

He will not be punished.

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

If no claim says however, though, it will be he deserves

00:55:00--> 00:55:00

and replenishes

00:55:02--> 00:55:04

the second possibility, he says

00:55:05--> 00:55:11

he may have been spreading the rumors and talking about it, and doing it in such a clever way

00:55:13--> 00:55:15

that he could not be held responsible for it.

00:55:16--> 00:55:17

So it could be that

00:55:19--> 00:55:20

he did not openly say something,

00:55:21--> 00:55:27

whereas the others, it was proven that they were spreading it.

00:55:28--> 00:55:30

Number three, he says it could be

00:55:32--> 00:55:36

that this punishment is only established through witnesses,

00:55:37--> 00:55:39

or through personal admission.

00:55:44--> 00:55:47

And he may have been spreading it only among them

00:55:49--> 00:55:50

in his circle,

00:55:51--> 00:55:54

and not among the believers. So there is no evidence,

00:55:55--> 00:55:59

there is no evidence to bring him and to punish him.

00:56:00--> 00:56:02

And then he says number four,

00:56:03--> 00:56:08

it could be that he wasn't punished and he was spared for the greater good

00:56:10--> 00:56:22

to avoid fitna and not to push his people further away from Islam, but rather to bring them closer to it. And then he says, it could also be all of the above.

00:56:25--> 00:56:28

And so this is the story of the F.

00:56:32--> 00:56:40

That Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed what he did regarding. And so we'll conclude with just a few lessons that

00:56:42--> 00:56:51

we can add to the lessons we have learned from the iron act. And so in the ayat that were mentioned, there are so many lessons

00:56:53--> 00:56:56

that we Muslims can learn from such,

00:56:58--> 00:57:00

you know, episodes and occasions.

00:57:01--> 00:57:08

You know, like Allah is teaching us a lesson that this is not something bad for you rather, it's good for you.

00:57:10--> 00:57:13

The lesson of being careful with our tongues

00:57:15--> 00:57:27

and not spreading such rumors, thinking good of our fellow brothers and sisters. All of these are lessons that we learned from the ayat that will add to what we have learned from the story. Number one,

00:57:29--> 00:57:37

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. What we learned from this incident is that in the end of the day, he was a human being.

00:57:40--> 00:57:42

And he did not have knowledge of the Unseen

00:57:45--> 00:57:47

Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suffered

00:57:48--> 00:57:53

the pain of having people to talk about his wife for an entire month

00:57:57--> 00:57:59

to the point where he even he came to her

00:58:00--> 00:58:02

and said, Yeah, sure,

00:58:03--> 00:58:13

if what they're saying is true, then repent to Allah. Right. He had no idea he could not affirm, and believe nor disbelieve.

00:58:15--> 00:58:21

He had to stay neutral, until there was some evidence or until Allah tells him otherwise.

00:58:22--> 00:58:28

So all of this shows us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if he knew the unseen,

00:58:29--> 00:58:32

he would have known that his wife was innocent.

00:58:33--> 00:58:34

But he suffered,

00:58:36--> 00:58:49

just like the others. And so it shows us them homeless all along, and it was him in the end of the day, even though he is the best of us, and the best of mankind. He is a human being in the end of the day, and he doesn't have

00:58:51--> 00:58:53

qualities that belong to allow,

00:58:55--> 00:58:57

like knowledge of the Unseen. Number two,

00:58:59--> 00:59:04

the importance of protecting the honor and the reputation of our leaders.

00:59:05--> 00:59:07

And so we see here,

00:59:08--> 00:59:10

that the enemies of Allah will either

00:59:11--> 00:59:21

try to assassinate the person, the leader, or they will try to assassinate his character. This is called character assassination, where

00:59:22--> 00:59:25

you try to bring down the reputation

00:59:26--> 00:59:33

of the leader so that people look down on him, and that he loses his followers.

00:59:34--> 00:59:37

And so, we already saw how

00:59:40--> 00:59:44

the enemies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had tried to kill him on more than one occasion.

00:59:46--> 00:59:51

But because they did not succeed in that, they then resorted to character assassination

00:59:53--> 00:59:55

and the enemies of Allah.

00:59:56--> 00:59:58

They will do this until the Day of Judgment.

01:00:00--> 01:00:17

They will design and make up stories about influential people among the Muslims, like the do hat, and the scholars and our leaders. And so we Muslims need to be careful and not believe in this in these stories. You know, today,

01:00:18--> 01:00:20

no idea will be revealed

01:00:21--> 01:00:22

to defend

01:00:23--> 01:00:37

a certain leader from among the Muslims, or a dahlia or a scholar. So it is our duty to learn from these events and apply the lessons to such incidents when they occur. Number three,

01:00:38--> 01:00:43

we learned from this incident, the punishment for

01:00:44--> 01:00:45

a cause of

01:00:46--> 01:00:53

slander and its importance in protecting the Muslim community.

01:00:55--> 01:00:58

So, if someone accuses a Muslim of Xena,

01:00:59--> 01:01:08

they have to produce, how many witnesses did we say? four witnesses. And if they don't do that, if they fail to do that.

01:01:11--> 01:01:13

And it's not just bringing four witnesses.

01:01:14--> 01:01:20

These witnesses have to be of a certain level of righteousness, a lighter

01:01:23--> 01:01:28

and it cannot be two it cannot be three. You know, if someone goes and finds three witnesses,

01:01:29--> 01:01:31

and he's unable to bring the fourth

01:01:32--> 01:01:33

he's gonna be punished.

01:01:35--> 01:01:43

And then they have to see the ACT being done that cannot be any Shubha. There cannot be any doubt that the act of Zina occurred.

01:01:44--> 01:01:45

It's all

01:01:47--> 01:02:03

whoever accuses chaste women have that. Then they are flogged publicly at lashes. And they are labeled as facet, as Allah says. And as Allah says, their testimony is not to be accepted.

01:02:04--> 01:02:09

Why did Allah do this? Why such a severe punishment

01:02:10--> 01:02:11

to protect the Muslim community?

01:02:13--> 01:02:17

You know, if such a severe punishment was put in place, then people would take it lightly.

01:02:19--> 01:02:23

And slanders would go about and people wouldn't care.

01:02:26--> 01:02:28

So unfortunately, today,

01:02:29--> 01:02:32

slandering innocent Muslims has become something common.

01:02:34--> 01:02:36

And, you know, many Muslims don't

01:02:37--> 01:02:39

look at it as being a big deal.

01:02:42--> 01:02:44

Whether it's related to Zina or anything else,

01:02:45--> 01:02:56

you know, rumors they spread like wildfire. And people don't realize that they are committing a major sin that is punishable

01:02:57--> 01:02:59

in the shadows. Number four,

01:03:01--> 01:03:02

we learned from this event,

01:03:03--> 01:03:07

the highest status of the Sahaba radula wiener

01:03:11--> 01:03:13

we can divide

01:03:15--> 01:03:21

the Muslim community in Medina at that time, at the time of the slander into four groups.

01:03:23--> 01:03:25

The first word the majority

01:03:28--> 01:03:36

the majority of the Sahaba they had protected their ears and their tongues, and they did not get involved.

01:03:38--> 01:03:45

They do not believe nor did they disbelieve they stayed neutral, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

01:03:46--> 01:03:47

And this was the majority.

01:03:49--> 01:03:50

The second group

01:03:51--> 01:03:57

were those who did not necessarily believe or disbelieve.

01:03:59--> 01:04:00

But

01:04:01--> 01:04:05

they heard the the rumors coming from the mafia.

01:04:06--> 01:04:07

And

01:04:08--> 01:04:10

they thought it's not a big deal if we

01:04:12--> 01:04:13

you know,

01:04:14--> 01:04:15

tell others about

01:04:17--> 01:04:19

about these rumors.

01:04:22--> 01:04:25

And so they thought it wasn't a big deal to parrot what they had heard.

01:04:27--> 01:04:29

These were some of the companions.

01:04:30--> 01:04:37

These were the likes of Mr. Hudson even forbid, Hamner but Josh that we mentioned.

01:04:38--> 01:04:39

Right?

01:04:41--> 01:04:43

And then you had a third group

01:04:46--> 01:04:49

those who disbelieved as soon as they heard

01:04:53--> 01:04:57

the likes of we mentioned on a YouTube and above a human on sorry

01:04:59--> 01:04:59

and

01:05:00--> 01:05:00

And

01:05:01--> 01:05:03

Husar very busy

01:05:04--> 01:05:05

and very well.

01:05:07--> 01:05:09

And then we have a fourth group.

01:05:10--> 01:05:16

And they were the ones who initiated the whole slander. And the whole story spearheaded by

01:05:17--> 01:05:21

Abdullah ibn obey them winner of recode and the head of the mafia.

01:05:23--> 01:05:25

So in the end, what do we see here,

01:05:26--> 01:05:35

we see that, although some of the companions, they made a mistake, and they involve themselves in this slander.

01:05:37--> 01:05:38

And they were even punished for it.

01:05:41--> 01:05:43

They didn't do it with an evil intent.

01:05:45--> 01:05:45

And

01:05:48--> 01:05:51

we don't consider them to be in the camp of the mafia.

01:05:55--> 01:05:58

In fact, the likes of Miss buck for the Walkman,

01:06:00--> 01:06:04

he was a burden. He was from those who participated in the battle a better

01:06:05--> 01:06:11

and we all know the virtue and the high status of anyone who participated in the battle a burden.

01:06:13--> 01:06:13

Also,

01:06:15--> 01:06:18

if they received their punishment in the dunya,

01:06:19--> 01:06:21

then as we said, it is a Kfar of Allah.

01:06:22--> 01:06:24

So in the end of the day,

01:06:25--> 01:06:40

after what we have learned in the story, no Muslim should ever have in his heart, any ill feelings towards any of the companions, even those who may have been involved in this.

01:06:42--> 01:06:45

Because in the end of the day, the Sahaba Rhodiola.

01:06:46--> 01:06:50

Whatever mistakes they committed, they repented from them.

01:06:51--> 01:06:52

And

01:06:53--> 01:06:58

they are nowhere compared to anyone who comes after them from any generation of them.

01:07:01--> 01:07:17

So that is why our duty is to protect our tongues when it comes to the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that whenever we read stories, of certain things that they may have done,

01:07:19--> 01:07:28

especially after the death of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam, how there was infighting between the companions, and they fought battles against each other.

01:07:30--> 01:07:32

Right after the death of the process, and after

01:07:33--> 01:08:00

the Khilafah of Abu Bakr and Rama and Earth man, there broke out wars between the Sahaba a Muslim should never take any science. And we protect our tongues. And we say these are people who Allah has favored over us, and He has forgiven them, their sins, any wrongdoing that they may have commit. Finally,

01:08:01--> 01:08:03

the last lesson that we learned

01:08:04--> 01:08:06

is concerning to ruling

01:08:07--> 01:08:15

on those who slander at your shot or the Allahu hanker after Allah has declared her innocent in the Quran.

01:08:17--> 01:08:18

And so the raw favor

01:08:20--> 01:08:23

May Allah give them what they deserve, are known for their hatred

01:08:25--> 01:08:26

of the Sahaba in general,

01:08:29--> 01:08:30

the Raphaela, the Shia,

01:08:31--> 01:08:41

and certain companions in particular, such as Abubaker are almost an audition for the Allahu Allah. They have particular hate.

01:08:44--> 01:09:04

For these particular companions, it'd be convenient he says, that there is age now there is consensus of the scholars that whoever curses at Isha after Allah declared her innocent and slanders her with anything, he is a castle, because he opposes Docker.

01:09:06--> 01:09:19

Before him, remember quickly, he says anyone who curses her with what Allah declared her innocent of he disbelieved in Allah, and whoever disbelieves in Allah is a capital.

01:09:20--> 01:09:22

But yet, but off

01:09:24--> 01:09:30

the leash, they let their tongues out and they slander it short or the long run her with the same slander

01:09:33--> 01:09:36

that Allah subhanho wa Taala declared her innocent.

01:09:40--> 01:09:45

So with that we come to the end of what we want to discuss today in sha Allah to add it next week we'll move on to

01:09:47--> 01:09:50

the next major battle and that is what was what

01:09:52--> 01:09:56

or less what and hudec Subhanak a loved one will be humbucker shredwell

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

Still futile cover to rake also

01:10:00--> 01:10:04

Lughnasa lemon and Rina Muhammad Ali was the original name was salam

01:10:05--> 01:10:06
