Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:01:31--> 00:01:35

We move on to Buddha to Elba

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

where we have our next parable.

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

And this is towards the end of Buddha to Toba.

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

In verse number 109

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

verse number 109

00:01:50--> 00:01:54

was awesome Hannah who is here gives us the example

00:01:55--> 00:01:59

of the foundation of the moon as became

00:02:01--> 00:02:08

the foundation upon which the moon has been has built their faith upon

00:02:11--> 00:02:13

and so also Hannah who is Allah says here

00:02:14--> 00:02:25

FM and Esther sabudana who Allah taqwa you know law he was one a urine mm M and sabudana who Ayesha juice in her infant harrowby phenol,

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

which is better?

00:02:28--> 00:02:37

Well here poses a question which is better. Those who laid the foundation of their building upon taqwa

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

and the pleasure of Allah

00:02:43--> 00:02:53

or those who did so upon the edge of a crumbling Cliff that tumbled down with them into the fire of hell.

00:02:55--> 00:03:00

One lacunae, Coleman, find the mean, and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.

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

It's all here was a parent who

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

compares the foundation of the hypocrite

00:03:11--> 00:03:16

to one who builds a foundation for his house,

00:03:17--> 00:03:27

on the edge of a bank, or on the edge of a cliff that is about to crumble down and collapse.

00:03:28--> 00:03:40

And so when you build a house, what do you do? What is the most important thing that you do, you make sure that you find the right place to build it, you can't build a house anywhere on any kind of ground.

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

So if you build it on,

00:03:45--> 00:03:48

on ground that is very soft.

00:03:50--> 00:03:51

And it's gonna sink in

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

the shoe will be strong.

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

If you build your house

00:03:59--> 00:04:04

on an earthquake fault line, where you know there is

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

the potential of an earthquake happening there.

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

You're putting yourself in danger.

00:04:14--> 00:04:18

If you build your house on the edge of a cliff,

00:04:20--> 00:04:21

and what will happen

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

eventually, it'll fall to collapse with you.

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

And that

00:04:30--> 00:04:39

is the example Allah gives us concerning the the hypocrites, but now what is the background of this of this parable?

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

The context we have to look at the previous ayah.

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

So when we go back to the previous

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

to this

00:04:52--> 00:04:56

once have heard of without it tells us that

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

the hypocrites

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

Built a Mr.

00:05:02--> 00:05:04

Next Mr. Koba.

00:05:05--> 00:05:18

When levena told the ministry don't do your on what Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned that the hypocrites and we have to remember surah to tell that is all about hypocrites.

00:05:20--> 00:05:33

A good portion of sudo to tell her talks about the moon, moon, and their characteristics, what they used to do in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah exposes them in the surah.

00:05:34--> 00:05:37

Allah tells us that the hypocrites had built a Masjid

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

next to Mr. Cooper.

00:05:41--> 00:05:42

And

00:05:43--> 00:05:48

basically, the story goes that they had finished building

00:05:49--> 00:05:59

the masjid before the Allahu alayhi wa sallam came back to basically the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was out of town.

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

He was not in Medina, he had left with the believers, who hunts with taboo, the Battle of taboo.

00:06:09--> 00:06:13

And the whole context of Surah teutoburg revolves around the Battle of the book

00:06:15--> 00:06:18

and how you know what kind of who

00:06:19--> 00:06:24

gave the command for them to March, the book, the face off against the Romans.

00:06:26--> 00:06:31

And it was in the middle of the heat of the summer.

00:06:33--> 00:06:42

And you had many people who gave excuses, and among them would have hypocrites. They give so many excuses to basically

00:06:45--> 00:06:49

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have left with the believers to the book.

00:06:51--> 00:06:54

Before he came back, these hypocrites had built this restaurant.

00:06:57--> 00:07:01

Not inside Medina, but on the outskirts of Medina, next to Mr. Kuba.

00:07:03--> 00:07:04

And

00:07:05--> 00:07:09

they finished building it before the prophet SAW Selim came back from the Battle of

00:07:12--> 00:07:22

well then when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam arrived in Medina, they went to him and they invited him to come and pray in the masjid.

00:07:24--> 00:07:35

Why? Because they wanted this to be approved, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam approves of of their Masjid that they had built.

00:07:36--> 00:07:43

So, they went to him and they told him Yasuda, why we built this Masjid for the week

00:07:45--> 00:07:47

and the people

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

on rainy nights

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

because you have to understand there was already a mustard there.

00:07:57--> 00:08:02

We needed justification for building this semester, next semester, Koba.

00:08:03--> 00:08:06

Two they said, We built it for the week people,

00:08:07--> 00:08:10

the ill who are not able to go to Mr. Buddha,

00:08:11--> 00:08:13

especially on rainy night.

00:08:15--> 00:08:19

This is closer to them, they come here they pray. And so this is what they told the profit sort of Walker

00:08:22--> 00:08:25

but then a loss of Hannah who to either reveal these

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

exposing

00:08:31--> 00:08:37

the munafo and exposing the real intent behind why they do this.

00:08:39--> 00:08:44

And then Allah subhanahu wa tada forbade the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from going and praying.

00:08:45--> 00:08:55

Allah subhanahu wa tada says, When did you know how to mistreat them to draw on workqueue foreign whatever your container means what you saw then leemon hearable la hora, Sula, humean COVID.

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

And those

00:08:59--> 00:09:07

who set up a master mean the hypocrites only cause harm. So here a lot explains why they do.

00:09:09--> 00:09:13

They only built this mischief to cause harm to promote copper

00:09:15--> 00:09:16

to divide the believers

00:09:18--> 00:09:32

and to act as an outpost as a base. For those who have previously fought against Allah and His messenger. They they made this to be an outpost where the enemies of Islam

00:09:36--> 00:09:39

then Omar says, When are you in our dinner in?

00:09:42--> 00:09:42

The hypocrites.

00:09:44--> 00:09:45

They will definitely swear

00:09:46--> 00:09:49

that we intended nothing but good

00:09:50--> 00:09:58

luck we are headed in a hula caribou. But Allah bears witness as they are indeed liars.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

And then oh

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

law forbids us messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:03--> 00:10:05

couldn't v Aveda.

00:10:06--> 00:10:09

Do not ever pray in it.

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

Limits JE Dunn who cseh Allah, choco amin, a well, Yeoman Haku and takuna Fie.

00:10:18--> 00:10:27

Certainly msgid founded upon taqwa from the very first day is more worthy of your prayers in it meaning Masjid Khuda

00:10:30--> 00:10:34

CGT Jalan buena India takaharu belong

00:10:36--> 00:10:36

in it

00:10:37--> 00:10:41

in that misspelled meaningless tsukuda in it are believers

00:10:42--> 00:10:46

in it are men who love to be purified

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

and Allah loves those who are fighters.

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

And then Allah mentions after that

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

this

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

this parable

00:10:59--> 00:11:09

FM and SSL banyana who Hydra taqwa Mina law what is the Why are you doing an SSL banyana? Who

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

drew him? And how will he know

00:11:16--> 00:11:26

who is better? The one who builds a foundation of his structure upon taqwa and seeking the pleasure of Allah.

00:11:28--> 00:11:44

That is what you know, his foundation is built upon meaning the believer is he better or the hypocrite whose foundation is built upon the edge of a cliff that is crumbling, and about to fall with him into, into the hellfire.

00:11:46--> 00:12:02

And so a loss of Hannah who Allah says that the masjid that was built upon the basis of taqwa and read one, the pleasure of Allah is not the same as a structure, which is called, which they call the masjid that was built

00:12:04--> 00:12:18

based upon causing harm, before causing division among the believers. And as an outpost for those who Ward against a lion is messenger. And so the first

00:12:19--> 00:12:20

they built their messenger

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

upon something solid

00:12:26--> 00:12:40

and that is taqwa, seeking the pleasure of Allah the second, they built their structure, which they call the masjid, on the edge of a steep hole, that would fall with them into the fire.

00:12:43--> 00:12:50

And so, we have several lessons that we can learn from this parable. The first is

00:12:54--> 00:13:03

the first lesson is that anything that was initiated with the intention of taqwa of Allah, and Islam,

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

anything that was initiated any good deed that was initiated

00:13:13--> 00:13:18

with the intention of taqwa of Allah, and his last sincerity.

00:13:20--> 00:13:21

Rest assured

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

that it will last forever.

00:13:25--> 00:13:37

It will last forever. The more taqwa you have and the more laws you have in your action, that you are about to do, the longer it will last

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

and the opposite.

00:13:40--> 00:13:44

Whatever is done with an evil intention,

00:13:45--> 00:13:46

then it never lasts.

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

It never like

00:13:50--> 00:13:53

eventually, one day, it will come crumbling down.

00:13:55--> 00:14:02

And so whatever deed that are supposed to be done sincerely for the sake of Allah,

00:14:03--> 00:14:12

if they are done sincerely for the sake of Allah, then they will last forever. But if they are not done sincerely for the sake of Allah, if there is

00:14:13--> 00:14:17

something missing, of is loss of work, etc.

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

Then

00:14:20--> 00:14:26

it will never last, eventually, it will come tumbling down. And this is the sooner of awasum, Herodotus

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

among his believers.

00:14:30--> 00:14:31

And so those who

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

they do things out of rehab,

00:14:35--> 00:14:47

wanting to show off not doing it sincerely for the sake of a lot. You find that, what they do, it never lasts, and what they saw after going off fame, etc.

00:14:48--> 00:14:50

They had it for a few moments

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

that it

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

didn't last, or if they had it in the dunya. It will last with them until the actual

00:15:02--> 00:15:07

And that's why this call is the how the famous statement in this regard, NACA, and

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

whatever is done sincerely for the sake of the law, it will remain,

00:15:16--> 00:15:20

it will remain forever, whether it remains in this dunya or

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

if it remains with them a tobacco by the way.

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

The second lesson that we learned

00:15:28--> 00:15:29

is

00:15:30--> 00:15:32

that we should be aware of the hypocrites,

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

and what

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

we need to be aware of them and their treachery

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

and their betrayal

00:15:44--> 00:15:46

of Islam and the Muslim

00:15:48--> 00:15:56

blotting day in day out with the enemies of Islam, the cause disunity among the believers.

00:15:58--> 00:15:59

There's a reason why it was

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

revealed so many ayats

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

losing them

00:16:08--> 00:16:11

just because they existed in the time of the Prophet.

00:16:13--> 00:16:15

And their harm was limited to that time, no.

00:16:17--> 00:16:20

But because zero harm, your credit,

00:16:21--> 00:16:28

and their betrayal, and their existence, in the ranks of the believers will remain

00:16:29--> 00:16:30

till the Day of church.

00:16:32--> 00:16:33

And so the recruits

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

are detailed their description in the Quran.

00:16:39--> 00:16:42

Allah mentioned so many different characteristics of these.

00:16:44--> 00:16:45

Why?

00:16:46--> 00:16:48

That we're aware of them,

00:16:49--> 00:16:50

and we don't become fooled by them.

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

But Allah subhanho wa Taala says

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

they are the enemy, so be wary of them.

00:17:01--> 00:17:04

They are the enemy as if I was saying

00:17:05--> 00:17:07

they are the enemy know what else.

00:17:10--> 00:17:13

We have so many enemies, Muslims, we have so many enemies today.

00:17:15--> 00:17:21

from among the kuffar especially in this day and age, you have so many islamophobes

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

hypocrite for me,

00:17:28--> 00:17:29

most dangerous of our enemies.

00:17:31--> 00:17:31

Why?

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

Because our other enemies

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

are clear or open with us.

00:17:40--> 00:17:50

Even the most least knowledgeable Muslim, and recognize that these islamophobes they hate us. They hate Islam.

00:17:53--> 00:17:58

And they are plotting day in day out to discredit Islam, to

00:17:59--> 00:18:05

cause people to hear Islam and Muslims. They're open about their actions and what they're doing.

00:18:07--> 00:18:08

To hypocrites, no,

00:18:09--> 00:18:14

the hypocrites, you don't know who they are. And you don't know

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

the fact that they are with us in our massage,

00:18:19--> 00:18:24

and yet are working for our enemies. The enemies of Islam

00:18:26--> 00:18:33

existed in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the exists even today. They have Muslim names.

00:18:35--> 00:18:41

They act as if they are one of us. They act as if they represent the Muslim community.

00:18:42--> 00:18:47

And they act as if they care for us. And they act as if

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

they care for Islam

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

and preserving Islam.

00:18:55--> 00:19:00

So they write in newspapers, and they speak in the media

00:19:01--> 00:19:16

saying that we need to take back Islam from the so called extremists. They're working day in day out against the Muslims with the enemies of Islam.

00:19:17--> 00:19:30

And so we need to be aware of the hypocrites and their treachery. They're plotting with the enemies of Islam. Because this unit among the Muslims as Allah subhanho wa Taala described them to us here in sort of

00:19:32--> 00:19:33

the third

00:19:35--> 00:19:39

lesson that we learn from this parable and from these are yet

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

is that it is impermissible.

00:19:45--> 00:19:49

It is impermissible to support any message

00:19:51--> 00:19:54

that is known or described as Mr. Draw.

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

What is mustard

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

law here tells us what is

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

Edina Tohoku mess Jaden we are on

00:20:05--> 00:20:08

call for on water for your containers in Florida

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

until the end of the day.

00:20:14--> 00:20:19

What tells us that the hypocrites took a strip they built a ministry

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

cause harm

00:20:24--> 00:20:25

mosquito.

00:20:26--> 00:20:27

So,

00:20:28--> 00:20:30

Mr. virag

00:20:32--> 00:20:35

refers to any must be that somebody builds

00:20:39--> 00:20:42

compete with an original

00:20:45--> 00:20:46

cause disunity among the blue.

00:20:48--> 00:20:49

We had evil intention.

00:20:51--> 00:21:02

Though, the scholars of Islam they say it is not permissible for us to support that message that breaks away from the body and the community of the group. And unfortunately,

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

we live the sad reality today,

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

especially in non Muslim countries, where it is easy for anyone to go and break off from the gym and build their own cluster. We have constantly seen how disputes that arise between

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

community members

00:21:25--> 00:21:54

where a group they break off and they go and they build their own Masjid, in the same area as the original ministry. If the intentions are evil, if the intentions are evil, it is wrong for any Muslim to support that mustard and to pray there. As Allah says here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Latta confy Abaddon do not bring in this Masjid ever.

00:21:57--> 00:21:58

However,

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

there are those cases where

00:22:03--> 00:22:06

there is the need to build another Mister, because

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

the mystery that we have

00:22:11--> 00:22:34

is not sufficient to hold all of the congregants and there are many cases where, you know, the population of Muslims in a certain area increases so much that one mustard is not sufficient. So now, if a group says that, you know, we're gonna go and build another mystery not too far off,

00:22:35--> 00:22:37

for the sake of accommodating,

00:22:38--> 00:22:44
