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

After that we move on to the next parable,

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

which is mentioned Intuit to him.

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

And here we have two parables back to back.

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

The first is in verse 10, of similar to to him. And then the second one is verse 11 of surah to him which we will take in the next session.

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

So as for the first parable,

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

then this is the parable that Allah gives us concerning

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

the disbelieving women.

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

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:01:03--> 00:01:05

In verse 10 of suta to him

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

Bora long

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

Nadine, aka for

00:01:13--> 00:01:17

Isla de who hulan

das Healy

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

Allah subhanahu wa tada says,

00:01:44--> 00:01:47

a lot presents a parable of those who disbelieve

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

the wife of no and the wife of Luke.

00:01:55--> 00:02:00

They were both under two of our righteous servants, but they betrayed them.

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

So their husbands were of no benefit to them against a law whatsoever. And it was said, enter the fire along with those who enter

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

until earlier on in the surah.

00:02:21--> 00:02:28

In the very beginning of the surah, Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

speaking about

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

his wives,

00:02:38--> 00:02:39


00:02:41--> 00:02:43

how some of his wives behaved

00:02:45--> 00:02:47

in a way that was not suitable.

00:02:49--> 00:02:56

And so a lot tells us how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam disclosed something to one of his wives

00:02:57--> 00:03:04

a secret and how that wife went to another, another wife and told her about that secret.

00:03:08--> 00:03:18

So Allah informed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about what happened. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went to that wife and told her

00:03:21--> 00:03:27

what she had done. So she, she said, Who told you this? So the prophet SAW Selim said, Allah told me this.

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

And so the point is,

00:03:35--> 00:03:36

that here we have

00:03:39--> 00:03:42

the behavior of some of his wives, that was not right.

00:03:44--> 00:03:47

And how a lot right after that, a lot,

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

you know, gives them the opportunity to make Toba

00:03:54--> 00:03:57

into either law, he forgot Sadhguru coma.

00:03:58--> 00:04:04

You know, you have the opportunity, both of you these two wives, you have the opportunity to repent to Allah for what you did.

00:04:11--> 00:04:15

And so, after that, at the end of the surah,

00:04:17--> 00:04:19

at the end of the surah, Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

gives us

00:04:24--> 00:04:32

two parables one of the disbelieving women and the other one which we will take in the next session of believing women.

00:04:34--> 00:04:41

As if Allah is asking the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Who do you want to be a monk?

00:04:46--> 00:04:48

And these two parables Allah gives us

00:04:50--> 00:04:56

the first parable concerning the disbelieving women are two women

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

who were under

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

two prophets of Allah.

00:05:03--> 00:05:06

And the other parable that Allah gives us is of the believing women.

00:05:09--> 00:05:15

And one of them is Asya, the wife of Pharaoh, and the other was Maria.

00:05:20--> 00:05:23

And so as for this parable regarding the disbelief in women,

00:05:26--> 00:05:34

it says, If Allah subhanahu wa taala is telling these women, the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that look,

00:05:35--> 00:05:39

your relationship with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

00:05:42--> 00:05:45

Yes, you are the wives of the Messenger of Allah.

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

Such a huge honor.

00:05:48--> 00:05:49


00:05:51--> 00:05:57

be advised that such a relationship will not benefit you

00:05:59--> 00:06:02

at all. If you disobeyed a lioness messenger,

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

you are responsible for whatever you do your actions.

00:06:09--> 00:06:22

Each and every single one of us is responsible for what we do in this life, irrespective of who we may be, or who we may be related to, that won't benefit us at all.

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

On the Day of Judgment before a lot.

00:06:28--> 00:06:30

And so here was Hannah, who Allah

00:06:31--> 00:06:32

gives us

00:06:33--> 00:06:37

this parable of the disbelieving women how

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

a lot compared them to

00:06:41--> 00:06:43

these two disbelieving women,

00:06:44--> 00:06:48

the wife of North and the wife of law.

00:06:50--> 00:06:53

And so there are some people who you know, they indulge in sin,

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

thinking that you know what we will be saved on the Day of Judgment, because of one reason or the other.

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

But mostly,

00:07:05--> 00:07:12

people think that they will be saved from the punishment of a lot because of their relationship to certain righteous people.

00:07:15--> 00:07:20

So they think that such a relationship will be a means of saving them from

00:07:21--> 00:07:25

the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:07:28--> 00:07:32

Some people, they come from the lineage of the Prophet sallallahu, how do you sell,

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

they are

00:07:37--> 00:07:45

the descendants of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so they think that because of that lineage,

00:07:47--> 00:07:49

you know, that will help them on the Day of Judgment.

00:07:50--> 00:07:52

And they can live however they want and dislike.

00:07:54--> 00:07:59

And they don't have to follow the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they don't have to be practicing Muslims.

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

This is only one example.

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

But you have other examples as well how

00:08:07--> 00:08:13

there are perhaps scholars, whose children think that because my father is a scholar,

00:08:15--> 00:08:18

you know, I will benefit from that relationship on the Day of Judgment.

00:08:20--> 00:08:26

Or a wife, who is married to a righteous man, and so on and so forth.

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

And so in order to,

00:08:30--> 00:08:51

you know, cut off such thoughts, Allah subhanahu wa taala gave us the example of these two women who are married to two of the best human beings to ever walk the face of this earth. Two of the prophets of Allah, new hallein salaam, and Lu Talia Salaam.

00:08:52--> 00:09:04

And both of these women, they died without accepting the message that their husbands came with from a loss of Hannah who went to Ghana. So what was the consequence of that?

00:09:05--> 00:09:11

As a law tells us here Well, can you lead to hulan narrow Maha Dessaline enter the Hellfire,

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

with the disbelievers

00:09:16--> 00:09:19

and their relationship with new

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

and loot.

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

This relationship will not benefit them on the Day of Judgment.

00:09:28--> 00:09:34

As a law tells us here and emphasizes Fela mulaney Yulia and Huma Mina law Isha

00:09:36--> 00:09:37

law tells us here that

00:09:38--> 00:09:41

their husbands were of no benefit to them

00:09:44--> 00:09:47

against a law and against the punishment of a law.

00:09:49--> 00:09:50

And so

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

this sends a clear message across to those who think that they will escape

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

The punishment of Allah in the hereafter due to their relationship with those whom Allah is pleased with,

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


00:10:09--> 00:10:14

if anyone was to benefit from such a relationship, then it would have been, it would have been us.

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

And so

00:10:22--> 00:10:27

these two women were the wives of prophets and messengers.

00:10:30--> 00:10:31


00:10:32--> 00:10:37

if they did not benefit from that relationship, then how can anyone else

00:10:40--> 00:10:53

and Allah subhanho wa Taala told us of this elsewhere in the Quran, how our relationships with people will not benefit us. And so lots of hunter who without it says, then 10 for outcome or harm come

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

while I will I do come Yamal, Korea, and

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

that never will your relatives or your children benefit you. On the day of judgment, Allah will judge between you.

00:11:10--> 00:11:14

And so the only thing that will benefit us on the Day of Judgment before Allah

00:11:15--> 00:11:20

is our deeds, our men and our deeds. That's it.

00:11:22--> 00:11:28

Not our relationships. And that's why we have other examples as well. Besides these two women,

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

such as Ibrahim alayhis salam,

00:11:34--> 00:11:36

whose father died as a mushrik

00:11:39--> 00:11:47

just because his son was a prophet of Allah, a messenger, he will benefit the father will not benefit from his son on the Day of Judgment.

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

Likewise, coming back to New Holly Santa

00:11:53--> 00:11:56

a lot tells us in the Quran about what happened to his son,

00:11:58--> 00:11:59

the son of Noah

00:12:01--> 00:12:04

and you know how new highly Salaam

00:12:06--> 00:12:11

pleaded to Allah. Oh Allah, you promised me that you will save me and my family.

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

So what about my son who drowned in the flood?

00:12:17--> 00:12:20

So, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

you know, rebuked new highly his Salaam and said

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

Your son is not from your family?

00:12:30--> 00:12:34

Meaning that your family are only the believers,

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

not the disbelievers among them.

00:12:41--> 00:12:47

And so, the reality is that no person no matter who he is, will benefit

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

from anyone no matter who they are on the Day of Judgment.

00:12:53--> 00:12:56

Yeah, you know, Sudoku, Rebecca, lady. Yeah, you

00:12:57--> 00:13:03

can watch the show. Yeah, woman law. Yeah, Jay Z Drizzy. While you don't have

00:13:05--> 00:13:07

one amo luden, who adjudging

00:13:10--> 00:13:16

a lot addresses us and says all mankind, fear your Lord.

00:13:18--> 00:13:23

And fear a Day in which no father will

00:13:24--> 00:13:25

avail his son,

00:13:27--> 00:13:32

nor will a son, avail his father at all.

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

And so this is the parable that Allah gives us here,

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

of the disbelieving women.

00:13:44--> 00:13:49

Among the lessons that we learn from this parable is first and foremost, that

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

true deprivation

00:13:53--> 00:13:56

and true loss is

00:13:58--> 00:14:05

when you have the means of guidance, right in front of you, and you choose not to take it.

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

That is what you call True, true deprivation.

00:14:11--> 00:14:17

But rather you you know, I mean, it's one thing where you have the means of guidance right in front of you.

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

And you don't take it. And then even worse than that is

00:14:24--> 00:14:27

to oppose the guidance

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

and to fight against it.

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

And to fight against the messenger who has brought that guidance and decide with the people of misguidance.

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

And that is the example of no

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

a lot

00:14:47--> 00:14:50

of their wives. They sided with

00:14:51--> 00:14:53

with the kuffar

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

the disbelievers

00:14:56--> 00:14:57

of their people.

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

The second lesson that we learned here is

00:15:05--> 00:15:11

that notice here how Allah subhana wa tada says concerning the wives of new Han Islam and loot,

00:15:12--> 00:15:16

can utter ibdv mean a baddie now Salafi

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

that these two women were under

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

two of our righteous servants.

00:15:27--> 00:15:38

What does this prove? It proves that wives are under the authority of men, and not the other way around, nor,

00:15:39--> 00:15:43

nor is nor is the authority shared between them.

00:15:46--> 00:15:55

In a husband and wife relationship, there is one who has authority, and the other one who has to submit to that authority.

00:15:59--> 00:16:10

And this is what we see from this verse. A law says that these two women were under a law did not say that they were simply you know,

00:16:11--> 00:16:13

equal partners,

00:16:15--> 00:16:21

or any other you know, language, but rather Allah specifically mentioned this,

00:16:23--> 00:16:30

to remind the believing women, that their husbands have authority over them, and to remind

00:16:31--> 00:16:34

the wives of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.

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


00:16:39--> 00:16:45

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is the one who you are under, you are under his authority.

00:16:46--> 00:16:50

Just like these two women, were under the authority of,

00:16:51--> 00:16:54

of these messengers.

00:16:56--> 00:17:05

And so, in order to Nyssa omits, makes it even more clear, deja vu qalamoun, Allah Nisa, Nina from Bala LA, who da da, da, da, da,

00:17:07--> 00:17:10

da, that men are in charge of women.

00:17:11--> 00:17:13

Meaning the husbands

00:17:15--> 00:17:20

have the authority over the women by right of what Allah has given one to the other.

00:17:22--> 00:17:29

Meaning that Allah has given the man the responsibility, to look after his family,

00:17:30--> 00:17:37

to take care of them, to go out and make a living, to support them.

00:17:38--> 00:17:46

And everything else that is the responsibility of the man and not the responsibility of the woman.

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

The third lesson that we learned here is

00:17:54--> 00:17:59

and this is a very, very important point to mention. And that is,

00:18:00--> 00:18:02

that the betrayal here

00:18:04--> 00:18:10

the betrayal of the wives, that is mentioned here, as a law says, For holonet tahuna.

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

Law says these two women betrayed their husbands,

00:18:21--> 00:18:24

we have to understand that the betrayal here

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


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

the betrayal of their religion,

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

a creed or betrayal

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

not submitting to their, to the religion

00:18:38--> 00:18:44

to Islam, that new aleut Ali Salaam were sent with

00:18:47--> 00:18:50

it does not mean marital betrayal.

00:18:52--> 00:18:53

Meaning that

00:18:55--> 00:19:04

here when the law says that these two women betrayed their husbands, it does not mean that they cheated on them, by sleeping with other men.

00:19:06--> 00:19:12

To some people, they may understand that by the word betrayal, because betrayal means to cheat.

00:19:14--> 00:19:17

So, we have to understand that is not what is meant here.

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

And this is mentioned, you know, by many, many scholars have to feed

00:19:25--> 00:19:33

all the all the way from the time of the companions. And from the seller, they mentioned this, that what is meant by this betrayal is

00:19:34--> 00:19:36

that they remained upon Kufa.

00:19:39--> 00:19:40

They remained upon Cofer.

00:19:42--> 00:19:42

And so

00:19:43--> 00:19:53

what this means, especially in the context of loot alayhis salam because we know that loot his people

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

were involved in

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

Sexual deviancy.

00:20:05--> 00:20:10

The people of loot, they were involved in homosexual practices.

00:20:11--> 00:20:12


00:20:14--> 00:20:17

the wife of loot honey Salaam,

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

the wife of loot, Elisa Lam,

00:20:21--> 00:20:29

did not betray his husband in the sense that she was involved in the homosexual practices of her people.

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

And that is because

00:20:37--> 00:20:40

there is no prophets who allow would allow

00:20:41--> 00:20:53

that to happen with him. Allah subhanho wa Taala protected the honor of the prophets and messengers, where Allah would not let such a thing to happen,

00:20:54--> 00:20:55

where, you know,

00:20:57--> 00:21:01

their wives would betray them in this in this sense.

00:21:04--> 00:21:07

And so the the wife of loot it has Salaam

00:21:09--> 00:21:19

she was not involved in those practices. But then somebody may ask then why was she punished along with

00:21:20--> 00:21:32

her people? Because a lot in the Quran tells us wherever the story of loot Allah Hassan has mentioned, a lot tells us and we save the loot. And we saved his family.

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


00:21:36--> 00:21:41

except his wife. She was one of those who was doomed and destroyed.

00:21:42--> 00:21:50

Can it mean aloha abelian illa Murata who cannot mean no hobby, except his wife she was among those were destroyed.

00:21:52--> 00:22:01

The answer is because, as we said she remained upon Cofer. But also in addition to that, in addition to that,

00:22:02--> 00:22:05

she would spy for

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

for, you know, these people against Lu Talia Salah.

00:22:13--> 00:22:19

So she would act as a spy for them. And so when the guests came to loot alehissalaam

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

the angels that Allah sent

00:22:24--> 00:22:26

in the form of human beings,

00:22:29--> 00:22:45

she immediately went and told her people. And so, you know, they came after hearing that, you know, luteolin salaam has very handsome guests, and they came banging on his door, and, you know, demanded that they have access to these guests.

00:22:46--> 00:22:51

It was because of her, the wife of loot, she went and told them. So

00:22:53--> 00:22:57

this is why we need to be aware of the danger

00:22:58--> 00:22:59

of supporting

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

such people.

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

And their ways,

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

which we are starting to see.

00:23:09--> 00:23:15

Unfortunately, today, Muslims in the West, they are becoming pressurized

00:23:16--> 00:23:18

to support the rights

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

of homosexuals, the rights of the LGBT community.

00:23:26--> 00:23:31

And so it's one thing to not agree with their ways.

00:23:33--> 00:23:35

While not transgressing against them,

00:23:37--> 00:23:41

just because we don't agree with them, we don't say that we should transgress against them.

00:23:42--> 00:23:45

We're not saying that, you know, we should,

00:23:46--> 00:23:49

you know, transgress against them.

00:23:50--> 00:23:51


00:23:53--> 00:24:02

you know, insult them, etc. No, we're not saying that. But it does not mean that we, therefore support them, endorse them.

00:24:05--> 00:24:14

And so there are many Muslims. Unfortunately, today were being pressurized to stand for the rights of such people. And they're, you know, one of the

00:24:16--> 00:24:25

one of the justifications for that is that, you know, if we do this, then we are supporting the minority, and they will also support us.

00:24:26--> 00:24:35

But the reality is that this is just a delusion. Because if you think about it, why on earth would

00:24:36--> 00:24:44

those people support us Muslims when they know very well, what Islam teaches about their lifestyle?

00:24:46--> 00:24:52

And so if there was anyone who they would support, it would be liberal minded Muslims

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

who are willing to distort Islam and say that you know, what homosexuality is not a

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

The deal

00:25:02--> 00:25:03

and so on and so forth.

00:25:04--> 00:25:13

And so, the point is that the point here is that the wife of loot alayhis salaam, was punished

00:25:14--> 00:25:19

along with her people, not because she did what they did,

00:25:20--> 00:25:42

but rather because she supported them, stood with them. Likewise, whoever supports such people today supports their rights stands with them, then it is feared that they will be punished along with them, whether it be in this dunya or in that.

00:25:43--> 00:25:55

We ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to protect us and to grant us knowledge and insight without we come to the end of

00:25:56--> 00:26:00

the session. And in sha Allah Tada, we will

00:26:01--> 00:26:17

wrap up this entire series in the next session be even harder until then. So, Nicola no biharmonic shredwell la ilaha illa and Estelle Furukawa to like, was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
