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

After that we move on to the next

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

as we mentioned, the next parable is right after right after this parable, it is also the parable of the moon Africa.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

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

oh guess what you mean I said

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

Evie, Luna

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

Luna also the fee

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

means so are you

00:01:03--> 00:01:04

feeding

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

tofu

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

curry Lana bow.

00:01:14--> 00:01:19

He would either have lemma IE him

00:01:22--> 00:01:30

a love letter recently him or those for him in law.

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

Lea Shay

00:01:34--> 00:01:36

Cody

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

this parable that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives

00:01:47--> 00:01:51

in verses 19 and 20 of Surah Baqarah.

00:01:52--> 00:01:57

This parable is the second parable of the hypocrites.

00:01:58--> 00:02:06

And to distinguish between these two parables. The scholars they refer to the first parable as an metta luminary

00:02:07--> 00:02:09

the parable of fire

00:02:10--> 00:02:13

so, the previous parable that we covered was

00:02:15--> 00:02:19

mentioned about the fire and how fire is ignited around such a person.

00:02:21--> 00:02:26

This parable is referred to as a method will match

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

the parable of water

00:02:32--> 00:02:37

and so once again, this parable is concerning the hypocrites and their lack of benefit from the ye

00:02:38--> 00:02:48

their lack of benefit from the revelation here Allah subhanahu wa tada says, okay, so even minister now if he Luma tomorrow

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

or their example, the example of the hypocrites

00:02:54--> 00:02:59

is like those who are caught in a rainstorm from the sky

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

with darkness, thunder and lightning

00:03:06--> 00:03:09

your jaha Luna wasabia Danny him

00:03:11--> 00:03:12

Mina so while

00:03:16--> 00:03:19

they press their fingers into their ears,

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

at the sound of the thunder

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

for fear of death,

00:03:26--> 00:03:34

a lot of caffeine and a lot is ever encompassing of the kuffaar of the disbelievers.

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

ucalgary barroco tofu episode Oh,

00:03:39--> 00:03:43

it is as if the lightning was about to snatch away their site

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

called Mr. Abbas Allahumma Shafi

00:03:48--> 00:03:52

every time the lightning strikes,

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

they walk in its light.

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

What is our old dilemma?

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

But then, when darkness covers them to a standstill

00:04:05--> 00:04:13

when OSHA Allahu Leatherhead or dissembling him or assaulting him. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken away their hearing and their sight.

00:04:15--> 00:04:20

In the law, Halla, conditioning Padilla and a lot is all powerful, most capable of everything.

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

And so here Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the hypocrites

00:04:27--> 00:04:31

as being one who is in heavy rain

00:04:33--> 00:04:36

that contains darkness, and thunder

00:04:38--> 00:04:44

and then out of fear, and out of his own weakness, his cowardness

00:04:46--> 00:04:54

he puts his fingers into his ears, and he covers his eyes, afraid that you know what this lightning is going to strike me.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

And so imagine a person out

00:05:01--> 00:05:07

in the wilderness or you know, he's outside, and he starts to pour, it starts to rain heavily.

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

And it's dark, it's night. He doesn't know where to go.

00:05:14--> 00:05:18

And lightning is falling Thunder is falling everywhere.

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

He's afraid maybe he'll get hit by

00:05:22--> 00:05:23

lightning.

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

So he

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

puts his fingers in his ears, he's afraid of the sound.

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

And he covers his ideas.

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

And so why does a lot gives us give us this parable

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

of the munafo of the hypocrites.

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

It is because

00:05:55--> 00:05:56

the hypocrites

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

they lack

00:06:01--> 00:06:03

what they lack is insight.

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

And they don't use their intellects

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

because of

00:06:15--> 00:06:16

their weak insight.

00:06:17--> 00:06:21

And because of their weak intellects,

00:06:22--> 00:06:26

the commandments and the prohibitions in the Quran.

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

The threats of laws punishment in the Quran.

00:06:37--> 00:06:40

They become difficult for these to absorb.

00:06:42--> 00:06:52

And so it's as if the commands in the Quran, the prohibitions in the Quran, whatever Allah reveals in the Quran, it's as if it's a it's a lightning bolt

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

attacking them.

00:06:58--> 00:07:01

And they're also being attacked with loud thunder.

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

That refers to the Quran whenever they hear it. Whenever a new idea comes,

00:07:10--> 00:07:11

they become afraid.

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

And this is how a lot describes them in the Quran.

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

As the Quran was being revealed to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:23--> 00:07:24

knew it would come.

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

And these munafo khundii were fearful. They were afraid.

00:07:31--> 00:07:42

One of the things they were afraid of is that perhaps a verge is going to come exposing them, because remember, the munafo the hypocrites?

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

Are these insiders,

00:07:49--> 00:07:50

of the enemies of Islam.

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

They are the eyes and the ears

00:07:56--> 00:08:00

of the enemies of Islam in

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

the Muslim community.

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

So in the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam,

00:08:10--> 00:08:18

the mafia cool around him in Medina, they were working against him with his enemies.

00:08:21--> 00:08:29

So Allah exposes them, especially in Surah to tell them, that's why suta Toba is referred to as the surah

00:08:30--> 00:08:33

that exposes the mafia Kuhn.

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

And so

00:08:38--> 00:08:45

these hypocrites are being attacked by heavy rain by lightning.

00:08:48--> 00:08:50

Similar to the previous parable,

00:08:52--> 00:08:53

where

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

a lot compared to them, to a person who

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

light

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

is illuminated around him.

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

But he doesn't benefit from that light. So Allah snatches it away. Likewise, here, what does the law say?

00:09:11--> 00:09:21

The law here says quill lemma adore Allahumma Shafi that every time the lightning would strike, they would have some light, and they would walk

00:09:22--> 00:09:25

in it being guided by the light of the lightning

00:09:26--> 00:09:36

what you have in common, but then when the lightning, the lightning, it comes for just perhaps a second or two or a split second.

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

They walk in then all of a sudden becomes dark, and they have to stop.

00:09:43--> 00:09:54

It's always once again that theme of them having light and then the light being snatched away from them. Once again, like the light of a man. Why is it taken away from them?

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

As we mentioned in the previous parable, because they didn't have anything

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

From from it.

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

And so a lot takes it away from them.

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

Now, some scholars,

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

they say that this parable,

00:10:17--> 00:10:23

this second parable of the moon after Kuhn is concerning those

00:10:24--> 00:10:25

who are

00:10:27--> 00:10:30

hesitant between enon and Cofer.

00:10:32--> 00:10:33

So they're not stable.

00:10:35--> 00:10:40

Sometimes they accept a man. Other times they go to cover.

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

Whereas the previous parable that we mentioned,

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

was about those who

00:10:50--> 00:10:59

they are proper kuffaar they are steadfast upon upon Cooper in their hearts, they're not hesitant about their cover

00:11:06--> 00:11:07

other scholars,

00:11:09--> 00:11:12

such as shipping with a mean,

00:11:13--> 00:11:22

he says that this parable refers to the hypocrites who are not believers to begin with.

00:11:23--> 00:11:29

And so, in the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, the munaf yakun around him, were

00:11:30--> 00:11:34

from among the Arabs. An Arsenal has Raj,

00:11:35--> 00:11:40

but they were also from the Jews. Some of the Jews were hypocrites.

00:11:43--> 00:11:44

And this was,

00:11:45--> 00:11:51

especially after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was victorious in the Battle of bedroom,

00:11:52--> 00:11:58

and he returned to Medina victorious. So these Jews, they became afraid.

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

And so they accepted Islam outwardly while

00:12:04--> 00:12:07

while keeping Cofer in their hearts.

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

So these scholars say that this parable here refers to it refers to these hypocrites who are not believers to begin with. So they never tasted a man to begin with.

00:12:25--> 00:12:32

The other hand, the previous parable, referred to those hypocrites, who were between 11 and Cofer,

00:12:33--> 00:12:37

which is why they had late and then it was taken away from them.

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

And

00:12:45--> 00:12:48

someone may be asking, how is it possible that

00:12:49--> 00:12:51

the hypocrites they had a man

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

a loss of hair, who was out in the Quran, mentions that they did have a man.

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

And then,

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

and then they

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

they disbelieved and so in Surah tomonaga cool. In the very beginning, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Delica be unknown.

00:13:14--> 00:13:23

To MacArthur Valley can be unknown, and I know Summa cafaro for to behalf Allah Kubi him from law school. This is because

00:13:25--> 00:13:34

they believed meaning of the moon they believed, then they disbelieved, therefore their hearts have become sealed so they cannot comprehend.

00:13:35--> 00:13:36

So based on this verse,

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

the mafia Kuhn, some of them

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

did become believers. They did have a man but

00:13:46--> 00:13:47

their Eman did not

00:13:48--> 00:13:57

penetrate and settle into their hearts like we mentioned previously. And that's why they quickly left and became kofod.

00:14:01--> 00:14:03

We have many lessons that we can learn from this parable.

00:14:04--> 00:14:07

Among these lessons, is first of all,

00:14:08--> 00:14:10

the munaf yakun

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

always live in fear and worry.

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

They're always fearful, always worried.

00:14:23--> 00:14:29

And this is something that loss of Hannah who tada describes them as in other places in the in the person.

00:14:31--> 00:14:38

And so Allah says in Surah Toba, in Nehemiah says even Kadena Lao Minami La Jolla will

00:14:40--> 00:14:43

work tab Kuru. For home fee him

00:14:45--> 00:14:47

a lot talking about those who

00:14:48--> 00:14:53

excuse themselves from the battle. This is referring to the Battle of Dubuque

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

there were

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

a group of people who excuse themselves.

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

From that battle

00:15:03--> 00:15:06

among them where the mafia who among them were believers?

00:15:08--> 00:15:12

And we have the famous story of the three, who, you know,

00:15:14--> 00:15:23

they excuse themselves from going out in that battle. And then Allah subhanahu wa taala forgive them, and how they went through a very, very difficult

00:15:26--> 00:15:28

tribulation, because of that,

00:15:29--> 00:16:03

while it serrata to Latino, holy foo, but we're not talking about, we're not talking about them we're talking about Allah says, In the Masters, you know, Kadena la mina Villa, he was the only asset. No one would ask him for exemption to be excused except those who do not believe in Allah or the last day, or a tablet guru, and their hearts are in dealt for him if you run into him yet or do so they are torn by their adults. They're always in a state of worry. They're always

00:16:04--> 00:16:06

afraid. Also Allah says,

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

describing the munaf Hakuna surah

00:16:13--> 00:16:19

Allah says for Elijah and hopeful Hitomi on Verona, Erykah? Badu

00:16:20--> 00:16:22

keleti, Yoshi.

00:16:25--> 00:16:26

When danger comes,

00:16:27--> 00:16:36

you see them staring at you, with the eyes rolling, like someone who has become overcome by death.

00:16:38--> 00:16:39

They're so afraid.

00:16:40--> 00:16:43

This is the state of the mafia. Why?

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

Because

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

the mafia Kuhn live

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

in the ranks of the believers.

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

They're around us.

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

And

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

who is in authority, the believers are in authority. In the case of Medina,

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had his Islamic State.

00:17:12--> 00:17:25

And so these won't have your call who are working against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they're afraid of becoming exposed. What if someone finds out that you know, we are working for the enemy.

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

So they're always afraid.

00:17:30--> 00:17:32

And this fear and this worry,

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

the only cure for it is evil.

00:17:38--> 00:17:45

And that's why the believer is never in a state of fear or a state of worry or state of doubt.

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

Allah says, Allah Do you know

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

what a plumber in Nakuru bahuvida karela.

00:17:55--> 00:18:10

Those who believe and their hearts find comfort in the remembrance of Allah Allah be the karela he taught my group, surely, by the remembrance of Allah in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find comfort.

00:18:12--> 00:18:16

The second lesson that we learned from this parable is

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

that the arguments of the Quran are like thunderbolts

00:18:25--> 00:18:28

for the hypocrites, they come down to striking upon them.

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

And this is why it is our duty

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

to use the Quran.

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

The Quran,

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

or the Quran is the word of Allah.

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

And in it we have

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

proofs

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

that

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

are not only convincing,

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

but proofs and evidences

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

that act like thunderbolts when they land

00:19:06--> 00:19:09

and so this is why we need to use the Quran

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

to make the truth clear to the people

00:19:15--> 00:19:22

and that's why Allah commanded in the Quran, fella to query taffy reader wotja he to whom de Jihad and

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

do not obey the kuffaar

00:19:26--> 00:19:30

and use it meaning the Quran

00:19:31--> 00:19:38

strive diligently against them against the kuffar with it meaning with

00:19:39--> 00:19:43

which I hid him, PG, Jihad and Kabira.

00:19:44--> 00:19:51

And so using the Quran to prove the truth of Islam is a form of jihad as a lot of refers to here.

00:19:53--> 00:19:56

The third lesson that we can learn from this parable

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

is that loss of Hannah, who was

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

Allah encompasses everything in his dominion.

00:20:04--> 00:20:08

And Nothing escapes his knowledge.

00:20:09--> 00:20:19

And so that's why Allah says, will long will she will carry a lot encompasses the kafar.

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

What this does is that it makes the believer firm and steadfast when he hears this, when you hear the Allies all encompassing of the kuffaar

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

it makes you feel strong and you're a man

00:20:39--> 00:20:41

that the enemies of Islam no matter what they do,

00:20:42--> 00:20:44

in the end of the day, Allah is

00:20:45--> 00:20:49

putting a circle around them. Allah will take care of them, don't worry.

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

On the other hand,

00:20:53--> 00:20:58

when the hypocrite hears will love him, people will Kathie Lee, he loses all hope.

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

And he becomes more fearful.

00:21:03--> 00:21:09

He realizes that he can never escape from the punishment of a loss of handle what?

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

And so

00:21:14--> 00:21:32

this is the parable that Allah mentions here. These are the two parables that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us concerning the hypocrites and their danger, the hypocrites and their danger. And the reason why Allah subhanho wa Taala has spoken about the hypocrites so much in the Quran,

00:21:34--> 00:21:36

worrying so much about them and their danger.

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

To the point where Allah says, Who will I do?

00:21:43--> 00:21:49

They are the enemy, so be aware of them. As if Allah is saying, Who will I do?

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

Last? Do we have it wrong.

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

It's as if they are your only enemy, you don't have any other enemies.

00:21:58--> 00:22:00

Why does a lot emphasize so much

00:22:01--> 00:22:08

in warning us against them. Because as we said in the beginning, the hypocrites.

00:22:09--> 00:22:15

Their danger is so severe because they are in our ranks.

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

And because we can't really see them.

00:22:21--> 00:22:23

It's difficult to notice them.

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

They come to you with the face of a believer.

00:22:28--> 00:22:29

They come to you,

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

as if they are one of you.

00:22:35--> 00:22:36

without you realizing

00:22:38--> 00:22:41

that they are hypocrites and actually working against you.

00:22:43--> 00:22:48

And it if this existed 1400 years ago in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:22:51--> 00:22:54

then it makes more sense that they will exist

00:22:55--> 00:23:03

afterwards until the day of judgment. And especially in times when Muslims are weak. Like today,

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

the hypocrites are everywhere

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

they are in our ranks, even here.

00:23:10--> 00:23:12

They come and pray in our massages.

00:23:16--> 00:23:17

And you don't even know

00:23:18--> 00:23:19

that they are so far

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

in their hearts.

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

And that's why we need to really really study the Quran

00:23:28--> 00:23:43

and especially these verses where Allah gives us so many different descriptions of the munafo of the hypocrites and ponder over them, because these are merely descriptions that Allah give us.

00:23:44--> 00:23:47

With these descriptions, we will be able to see

00:23:48--> 00:23:54

who these hypocrites are and therefore, be able to be safe from their danger.

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

When we come to the end of

00:23:58--> 00:24:01

wood that we come to the end of this first

00:24:02--> 00:24:10

session of or the second session of the parables of the end.

00:24:11--> 00:24:31

Until the next session, we shall conclude here. So the Hannukah locomobi hummed. A shed will let you enter so Furukawa tuberculate Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
