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

ilaha illAllah

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

Muhammadan Abu

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

Allahumma salli ala Muhammad wa ala Muhammad canossa late Allah Ibrahim Allah early Ibrahim naka hamidah Majeed Allahumma barik Allah Muhammad wa, ala Muhammad

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

Ibrahim Ali Ibrahim NACA Hamid Majeed.

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

So,

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

this is the objective

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

these are the seal of the Quran, that's how we call it

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

basically

00:00:59--> 00:01:05

you do is to have to figure out one objective of the soul

00:01:06--> 00:01:11

the whole chapter is conveying one single message

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

and you try to assemble the pieces within the chapter

00:01:18--> 00:01:22

to fall towards that you understand it in that context

00:01:23--> 00:01:41

of the chapters of the objective you conclude it of course, this is a matter of wish they had you may read someone else's work, he may produce another objective of the chapter, he may feel like this particular objective has more emphasis then,

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

you know, the other

00:01:46--> 00:01:56

objective that others windowbox obviously, you must have evidence which would support your take or your approach on the surah.

00:01:59--> 00:02:04

So, let's move on here. A little introduction.

00:02:06--> 00:02:33

I always like to connect the three chapters imagine this Surah Al Baqarah introduced the guidance, the curriculum, the manuscript, right, the man has, we call it the man hedge men has listicle F, for you to be leaders, you have to implement that curriculum. And so Rebecca also taught us or instructed us regarding

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

how to deal with the bar and the commands remember the bar and documents information? What do we do with the information? What is the word? Deus the right right? You believe it is from Allah you believe it?

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

Right? A key

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

so Pamela, somebody sent me an email.

00:02:58--> 00:03:01

I would like to name people but

00:03:02--> 00:03:08

a very famous brother Mashallah And may Allah guide him he's talking about the illusion Nigerians? It doesn't make any sense to me it

00:03:09--> 00:03:33

doesn't the whole thing doesn't I studied science and I have a PhD in this and, and it doesn't fit me it doesn't. And we have to, yeah, who said Who said that? unseen. You have to understand that Who said that? Who said that? And imagine how many people are followed by the brother is very confusing, unseen, we make the sleep of it. You know?

00:03:35--> 00:03:38

I've seen it. I've seen it. I've seen it case.

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

You know, there is a hadith that

00:03:48--> 00:03:51

the Prophet said one day

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

a man

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

was traveling that was walking.

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

And by all the sudden

00:04:03--> 00:04:10

No, a farmer he is a farmer was taking was taking the robe of his cow.

00:04:11--> 00:04:16

So by all the sudden the farmer decided that he wanted to ride the cow,

00:04:17--> 00:04:30

he got on the cow and he wanted to ride the cow like you ride a donkey or a mule for the cow looked at him and did like this mellie had a full lift. Imagine this so the cow looked at that farmer

00:04:31--> 00:05:00

and, you know, say to the farmer, I was not created for them in nema hulak to dissolve IE, I was created to help you blow you know, you know, the blauw blauw the Earth that's what I'm created for. So imagine at this time, we're talking about 1400 years ago, you know, right now, if you know people probably would believe that there is a cow that would speak because of all the amount of movies that we watch you know, the

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

Cartoons with the cows and the cat speaking and, you know, you probably believe that now, you know, and we're able to understand the language but imagine at the time of the professor, so look how the Sahaba reacted. Yara Sula, la abakada to the color. A cow speaks

00:05:18--> 00:05:36

Jani. We don't believe that this is, you know, at the time that's out of reach. You know what the prophet said? And all men will be Delica and our Abu Bakr and Omar, I believe it because it's a revelation from Allah and our worker normal how the cow will speak and how they I don't care.

00:05:37--> 00:05:50

You see a man had a man of course the father is a key when you employ your intellect in areas of unseen listen if you are using malocclusion issue to you, then what about the throne of Allah?

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

Well,

00:05:54--> 00:06:09

and the thing is that the brother is saying what the brother is saying what he is the funny thing Oh, we have to make sense of these things because we're losing our use. See one metal manipulate the Quran and Sunnah in order to to accommodate the use.

00:06:10--> 00:06:20

You didn't manipulate the religion in order to bring youth into the religion in order to keep youth into the religion. You tell them the truth. You're supposed to tell them the truth but

00:06:21--> 00:06:27

facts dusty had to sleep, you don't try to make sense of things.

00:06:28--> 00:07:11

What about the commands? What is the second thing that we do with the comments? What? What is the slogan here, we hear and we obey. So Al Baqarah toughness, if you want to qualify yourselves, to be the leaders of humanity in earth, and you want a lot to help you, you have to implement the curriculum in that manner. You have to do your best and there is nothing for sure. Now remember, surah Allah amaran Surah Al Imran came to call us to do up to be up to be steadfast, because you're not going to be left alone, you're not going to be left alone, people are gonna try to shake your sleep.

00:07:13--> 00:07:38

I mean, these youths of ours, they went to public school, they've been studying evolution, they've been studying all these things. And, and, and, and they they studying logic and all these things. And then you can say you have to believe that the shadow or the point I'm trying to make here is sort of, sort of Allah and Ron keen to call the Muslims to be steadfast. And remember the two events who remember the two events that Allah and Ron are centered.

00:07:41--> 00:08:01

And the second one, the delegation of the Christian delegation of Nigerian, a group of Christian scholars came to the to the Prophet telling him, No, Jesus is the Son of God, imagine this, and they are insisting on it. By the way, only two of them believed from that delegation, because they came trying to convert the profits or loss Allah,

00:08:02--> 00:08:17

you need to understand that they came actually trying to convert the profits are solid to Christianity. And that's what we're faced with, especially with Venezuela. And and something I did something very interesting. Why Allah subhanho wa Taala did not

00:08:18--> 00:08:25

include the Jews in that subject of a religious What do you call?

00:08:26--> 00:08:34

You know why Jews are not gonna ask you to become a Jew. Because Jews never invite people to the religion.

00:08:36--> 00:08:42

Only Christians, because Jew believes Jews believe that for you to be a Jew, you must have what?

00:08:44--> 00:09:29

A Jewish mother, your Jewish, your mother, that's, I mean, that's in their midrash. And, but some people may say otherwise, but the Shahada, but in any rate, sort of lm Ron came to invite us to be steadfast in the face of work in the face of the doubts, which would affect our sleep, and in the face of whims and desires, which would affect what which would nullify what our what our compliance, our submission, our we hear and will be slogan. And this is what happened with the companions in the Battle of Orford, they were asked to stand on the top of a mountain to protect the back of the Muslims. And because they saw some spoils of war, they went down to pick it up. And that caused the

00:09:29--> 00:09:40

whole oma to lose what to lose the fight. You're getting that then we're dealing today with Sora to Lisa. So as to Lisa is very interesting.

00:09:41--> 00:09:48

And that scene is out of this world, a sign that you're doing

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

a good job, as a leader,

00:09:52--> 00:09:55

as a vice geraten earth

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

that you're protecting the rights of the weak and the oppressed.

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

in the community.

00:10:02--> 00:10:07

That's what Surah Nisa is about. So Athena says about this

00:10:08--> 00:10:12

is be aware of the weak and the oppressed in the community.

00:10:14--> 00:10:37

Look at this Surah Nisa came to send a clear message to the Muslims who are leading mankind. justice and mercy are the basis of governance, ruling, so administer through justice and show mercy and compassion, especially to those weak and oppressed segments in the society.

00:10:40--> 00:10:41

When you're in charge,

00:10:43--> 00:10:43

remember,

00:10:44--> 00:10:51

part of the curriculum in Bukhara remember that you have to also process

00:10:52--> 00:11:15

the material side of the world you can just offer the world spiritual solutions, you have to also better their lives you have to make their lives better and so forth. Likewise, you have to protect the rights of the oppressed and the needy. A little introduction to sort of the necessity has 176 verses.

00:11:18--> 00:11:21

It was revealed in Medina obviously, that is true.

00:11:22--> 00:11:30

It is the second longest in the Quran. After what after ibaka, the second longest in the Quran.

00:11:31--> 00:11:39

And it is one of the seven longest chapter in the Quran. Because we have had he compiled the Muslim

00:11:40--> 00:12:01

Hadith eyeshadow. Viola Juana with Shaquille Alberni has center, he said, it's a good chain of narration, whoever knows the seven longest chapter in the Quran, he is how he's a scholar. When you have a good command of those seven chapters, you are a school Al Baqarah.

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

And I'm wrong in this dilemma. And I am, are off and with it comes it over

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

and fell it over seven, they considered it and fell with tober together.

00:12:18--> 00:12:31

Together so until October, if you know those seven chapters if you have a good command of them, and that's what we're trying to do in this class. We're trying to do that. You are a schooler.

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

Of course in the area of

00:12:35--> 00:12:54

where do we get the name of the surah from the name of the surah is famous because love the word in itself was mentioned multiple times, but rather, the name of it Nisa was mentioned in multiple Hadith. The first Hadith is Imam Muslim, Omar,

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

Allah one said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:12:59--> 00:13:17

He said to us, I have never been so consistent in asking the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about something that we that I was asking him about the kelela What is it kelela when someone dies and he has no children

00:13:19--> 00:13:30

that says Galella. someone dies and he has no up. No kids what is going to happen to his money. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he booked him within his show in his

00:13:32--> 00:13:39

chest like this. And then he said to him, is in the verse which was revealed in the summer

00:13:40--> 00:13:58

at the end of surah, Nisa enough for you. Yes, def Tunica Padilla who you can fill kelela read the last verse 174 You don't have to but it's there. You know, they asked you about in calella Padilla have to conflict Allah Allah. Allah Allah Allah. Allah, Allah.

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

Allah Allah. So that last verse 174 is about this so Salam sector Omar what the last verse in what chapter he named it What? And Nisa

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

I saw the alarm on her wall. Hmm.

00:14:18--> 00:15:00

Buhari, one Muslim. She said Al Baqarah when he said revealed when when I was when when I was with the Prophet when I was married to the professor. So when I was in his house, so she she named it Rebekah and Lisa had it. At one time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Abdullah have never spoken and decided to hurry up nosode recite the Quran to me. If you must say Dr. Rasulullah homina decided to you when it was revealed on you. He said I'd like to hear it from others. fEf Tata to be Nisa. Then I started from Surah Nisa, until I reach a certain area. And then the professor so Massoud use the word what Anissa halifa. A famous at my Muslim I breed the hedgehog behind the bra.

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

So last one night, he decided that Baqarah in one Raka bacala then I said he's gonna bro straight then he started in Nisa.

00:15:10--> 00:15:22

Then he's gonna start it Allah and Milan, the Messiah was not put in order yet but the point I'm trying to make what is the name in Nisa is the TV the Prophet name did that Allah named it that way.

00:15:23--> 00:15:29

What is obviously the subject of the surah is about the women, and Nyssa that's the name.

00:15:31--> 00:15:49

Look at the first verse and the last verse, the surah started with ruling concerning the the woman and ended with a verse that talks about the same thing at the very end of it. So this is obviously the main theme more than 30 of the surah talks about the woman and their rights.

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

their attention to this.

00:15:55--> 00:16:06

Remember, we're leaders now of a community. And Allah subhanho wa Taala granted people the freedom to choose the religion, so not everybody is going to be what? Muslim?

00:16:07--> 00:16:18

So you're in charge of the Christian imagine the community of Medina. Exactly. The Jews or the Christians or the hypocrites or the the kuffar around you, and you're ahead of the community.

00:16:19--> 00:16:58

Look at this now, the surah focuses on the fact that we are one big community regardless of being far or near. And this is made quite clear all right at the outset for the surah opens with that verse. What is the first verse which we decide to remember all the time? Yeah, a Johan nergal. A Dakota alethea. Hala Haku min. Neff, Sinha, Hayden, imagine all of us are created from one soul which is Adam. And from Adam wahala caminhada zoologia. And from Adam, Allah created what?

00:16:59--> 00:17:27

His meet his wife, Eve web FM in humeri. gel and Kathy Juran, one is imagine this, as if Allah subhana wa Taala is telling you and me that, regardless of how far the human race has expanded, and extended will still work, if you trace us back, we still work. We're one family, regardless. So somehow we have a connection between us,

00:17:28--> 00:18:09

regardless of your color, regardless of your race. So all humans are in fact related. sharing the same origins and the same common ancestry, we have to show mercy and apply justice to the old full of humans, no matter how near or far, this is one of the one of Islam major principles, mercy and justice must be extended beyond blood relations in order to encompass all human groups, races, colors, and bring about cooperation and cohesion between people. So that's the message that's Islam, you're you're ahead now, and and now.

00:18:13--> 00:18:25

Three main subjects, and all of those are going to serve that serve that that world leaders protect the rights of the oppressed, and the weak in the Muslim community

00:18:26--> 00:18:34

with no compromises, look at the first one, protecting the rights of the weak segments in the community, in particular, the women.

00:18:36--> 00:19:21

And that's why the surah is called the women and they sell to protecting the rights of the minority groups, whether they are religious groups, whether the other ethnic groups, they are minority in the Muslim community without compromises. This doesn't mean that you go and tell them that you're being Christian, you're gonna go to jail. No, no way to go to Ghana is Islam. If you stay like you see, without compromises, you see, you have to differentiate between treatment and what you have in your heart of beliefs. Tolerance has nothing to do with beliefs, tolerance has to do with interacting with other people, but some will be will be having good kindness towards them. The last thing is the

00:19:21--> 00:19:36

significance of having solid beliefs in order to develop good character inshallah, I hope we can finish the whole thing today, because that's the objective is to finish it in one setting, but it's up to you insha Allah be delighted. Let's move to part one.

00:19:38--> 00:19:59

And please, we'll go quickly because I'm going to give you the number of verses and you go and do your research. Number one, protecting the rights of the oppressed and the weak in the community, brothers, for you to really grasp and understand the depth of this chapter. And how Islam did the best

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

service to women.

00:20:02--> 00:20:06

You have to study carefully the Sushil complex

00:20:07--> 00:20:10

in the Arabic community, how they treated women.

00:20:11--> 00:20:17

Women were mistreated in a way that is unbearable.

00:20:18--> 00:20:31

So imagine when when these things come is to take the society, the community, the people out of that Jamelia into Islam, but again, is to protect the rights of the woman's, the first one.

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

The rights of orphans.

00:20:37--> 00:20:42

Want you to look at verse 236,

00:20:43--> 00:20:46

Yola, work with me 236236.

00:20:51--> 00:20:56

Then consume the resources of our offense unlawfully, and be just with them.

00:20:59--> 00:21:03

orphans, of course, who's an orphan, who's an orphan,

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

without parents, without a father,

00:21:09--> 00:21:31

the orphan is without a father. So he may have a mother, but an orphan in Islam, someone who loses his father. You know, what about the birds, the animals, you know, an orphan and the animals and the birds, you know, you know, an orphan and the birds and animals, the one who loses the mother, you call him an orphan, you call that bird an orphan, because the mother normally

00:21:32--> 00:21:38

takes care of, you know, the other guy just places the seeds and he's got basically so that's an orphan.

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

So, what about verse number two?

00:21:45--> 00:21:57

So basically, people would die, and they would leave kids behind them. Other people will take charge of what of their money? Alas, they will actually attempt Amala Humala data but Daryl hubby said,

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

you better hand over the wealth to them.

00:22:02--> 00:22:07

You know, the, the in famous delegate below give me verse

00:22:09--> 00:22:12

is actually mentioned in that context. What would happen?

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

A girl

00:22:17--> 00:22:20

her father passes away, she becomes what? An orphan

00:22:21--> 00:22:32

and he would leave a lot of money for her. So the one who's taking care of her. He doesn't love her. He doesn't like her. But he would go to marry her in order what to keep what?

00:22:33--> 00:22:34

To keep the money.

00:22:36--> 00:22:45

Look, that's the context of the verse by the way, we're in his tomb and glad to see to filiana Thank you, Omar po Bella akumina, Nisa, Mr. Nawaz.

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

That's the context.

00:22:48--> 00:22:51

But this does not mean that you cannot marry two or three or four.

00:22:52--> 00:23:19

I mean, I'm not going to bleach that because your wives are not going to send you here again. But you know, that's in the religion. But that's the context actually, that they used to do this. The Arabs used to do this, if I'm taking charge of an orphan girl, a girl who's a female, a girl. So instead of releasing the money to another husband, I will marry her. And just to take away her money, for less than and Don't do that. Don't do that for you.

00:23:21--> 00:23:41

Also, another trickery just to let you know that the Arabs at the time they used to manipulate the process. So when an orphan has we'll just look at verse six, very interesting, verse number six. So while the wild that child is growing, and he did not reach or attain his

00:23:42--> 00:23:48

maturity, not puberty, maturity, I would go and spend the wealth of the orphans wasted.

00:23:50--> 00:24:13

Because once he grows and he becomes a man, if this is a boy, now you see a girl I will marry her but the boy What would I do? That's the use of the opposition to this. So if I'm taking care of your money, as long as you're growing, you don't know anything and wasting your money right and left spending it, spending it so that when you grow and become old, what is the money that my father left for me? Oh, happy began. We spent it remember

00:24:14--> 00:24:15

Aleister

00:24:16--> 00:24:21

Crowley, uttama Hata Bella Monica and so men who Muslim Fatah lay him and why that

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

is so often will be Darren and jaquan woman can have any affiliate servomechanism pedophilia quibble. Now, we're getting that. Look at this severe warning again, is that cool? Look at verse number 10 out of this world, and that is why it's a major sin in Islam to devour the will of an orphan.

00:24:42--> 00:24:46

And the companions and the breed assessors, they used to take this very seriously.

00:24:49--> 00:24:52

You know, when the father would pass away,

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

and they would have some sort of a funeral or Raja, you know, people come and

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

And offer what degree you know, condolences, you know, to the people. So at one time I think it's really my mother's or another email famous. I don't remember who it is, but I know for a fact that this is so when when he arrived he saw a candle

00:25:16--> 00:25:18

he pulled it down. He booted off.

00:25:19--> 00:25:38

They said this is the wealth of the orphan. I don't want to be here. Imagine this is how you know a candle, a candle in the house. So he Why do we need this candle there is no need for it. This is the wealth of the orphan wouldn't want to waste this is how in the Medina Guna Amalia Tamar Wilma, in the back so clear now. So the first segment

00:25:39--> 00:26:06

that is oppressed, that is needing help you as a Muslim leader in charge, be mindful of those, especially if they are what they are what Nisa no orphans and the combination of orphan and females, both to see an orphan male at one stage is going to grow up and probably is going to fight his uncle or his What is my money, you wasted my money, he probably could get it back with a girl.

00:26:07--> 00:26:17

This is the first segment in the community to inheritance. And so Pamela will lie This is the diversity well life back home what I come from, women do not inherit.

00:26:18--> 00:26:46

Women that often hurt. Now, this is inheritance. Look at this inheritance law, both men and women get a shave. These are in detailed passage in details. Yani verse, also encouraged providing for the needy and so forth. In the Bri Islamic tradition, the strong would consume the inheritance of the women and Islam came to protect that law of inheritance. It is an obligation from Allah relation.

00:26:48--> 00:26:51

Okay, here is the example verse number seven.

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

There is a shield for men and a shield for women, from what is left by parents.

00:27:02--> 00:27:14

Right now Allah who went back to this in Egypt, for example, when they distribute the inheritance, they would say to the girl, you have a husband go, it takes care of you. Yeah, she gets a share.

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

She gets a share, you can take away this from her. Allah commands you as a God, your children, verse number 11, that long, that breaks down and 12. So law of inheritance.

00:27:32--> 00:27:40

That's also the last verse right here, the one that I refer to is about the inheritance regarding someone who dies leaving no kids.

00:27:42--> 00:27:43

Five, number three.

00:27:47--> 00:27:55

In the Brea Islamic tradition, by the way, a person may marry a sister, our lady and her sister together.

00:27:57--> 00:28:02

What that would lead to, I mean, we're assuming here that you can do that.

00:28:03--> 00:28:07

Imagine two sisters are the wives of

00:28:08--> 00:28:09

this. So the relationship has been about

00:28:11--> 00:28:14

I mean, they're gonna have jealousy amongst them. Not gonna work.

00:28:15--> 00:28:20

Also a wife, or a woman and her aunt, holla, Ron,

00:28:22--> 00:28:23

you can do that anymore in Islam.

00:28:24--> 00:28:38

So rules of marriage, especially concerning the women who cannot be taken in marriage. Sometimes certain marriages in Islam may affect the relationship between two sisters, a woman and her aunt, like we said, so look at verse

00:28:39--> 00:28:45

2223, and 24. It identifies what you can marry

00:28:47--> 00:28:54

the woman who can they marry, and who they cannot marry, in order not to cause them this country.

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

But you

00:28:58--> 00:28:58

have to fast.

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

Good. So again, the whole thing is, I'm just bringing you from the surah, the week, the oppressed and the rights that have been manipulated, and Islam came to the story. And Islam is calling upon us today. If we are in charge to protect these rights in this war, if we will not do the work of Allah, who will do the work of Allah by a

00:29:23--> 00:29:26

woman's right over the property.

00:29:28--> 00:29:35

You know, in the Bri Islam tradition, judges believe women had no right to their property.

00:29:37--> 00:29:56

Islam came No. In the Bri Islam No, sometimes husbands imagined this now. Here's the thing, the dowry, the woman has a right to her dowry. By the way, one of the conditions for a marriage contract to be valid in Islam that you must give her a gift one time gift.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

The Arabs would not do that.

00:30:01--> 00:30:02

Also

00:30:04--> 00:30:07

at one stage when they dislike

00:30:10--> 00:30:15

or I'm sorry when they want to take the wealth away of a woman

00:30:16--> 00:30:19

they married to, they would give them a hard time.

00:30:20--> 00:30:26

So the woman would come and say what you know what I want out of that relationship. Okay, just give me what I given you before.

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

Just Just read.

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

Just read 19

00:30:36--> 00:30:51

read verse 19 again just shows you Yeah, you are Latina Emmanuella Yahoo documentary fournisseur acaba, hawala tabula Hoon deleted Abu Dhabi met at a tuna, tuna, tuna, wash your mouth and Coronavirus and

00:30:53--> 00:31:01

we're in our Tomas de del aza. Woojin makan 1920. We are to Mr. della zoji McCann, Associate Fellow at the hoodoo minutia.

00:31:03--> 00:31:42

Fellow at the hoodoo minuti una who Bhutan and what if mama when. So actually the Arabs would force in order to take away the Maha like I would give a gift, but then I want to take it back. So then I would give my wife a very hard time until she went out of the relationship and he tells her the only way for you to come out of the relationship is you gave back what that already we can do that. See look how Islamic who deals with stuff like that same basics. Islam teaches us how to conduct and that's what we call this is a manuscript This is the curriculum that we need to follow in order to be fair and just inshallah

00:31:44--> 00:31:47

good. I think that message is clear right? That every

00:31:48--> 00:32:00

verse number four also has adultery right? We're at UNICEF at a party in Nashua women are not to be women is not to be forced into marriages.

00:32:01--> 00:32:07

The women must be consented. And at the time, they used to force women into marriages. And some cultures, they still do that, right.

00:32:10--> 00:32:15

Especially. And here's a scenario that I read. And this is

00:32:17--> 00:32:21

some of these verses were relating to we're we're talking about

00:32:24--> 00:32:26

that somebody his husband passes away,

00:32:27--> 00:32:29

and he leaves a lot of money.

00:32:31--> 00:32:36

So the brother of this man who passed away, he would force her to marry him

00:32:37--> 00:32:39

in order to keep up

00:32:40--> 00:33:06

without her consent, says no, you can do that. A condition for the validity of marriage contract, look at this consent of the future wife and the body. It's a mutual decision, by the way, mutual decision. Both of them also a woman cannot marry without her guardians. consent, it has to be a mutual decision, that that worry and the job and

00:33:07--> 00:33:09

of course, good treatment is important.

00:33:13--> 00:33:38

I live with them honorably. If you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing. And ally brings through it a great deal of goodwill is like sometimes you see this verse that is of hallelujah. You know, sometimes we have these down moments in our relationship, you know, and with our marriages, and we're not talking about you guys, you guys wait a little bit you will see it's coming.

00:33:42--> 00:34:27

So hello, look at this list. Even treat them good, even if you dislike them. Look at the verse look at it. Look at verse 19. But what was the middle of the verse towards the end of it? The last line even if there is dislike you may dislike something that Allah will bring some goodness at the end of it you never know. You know? There are kids out there maybe there are a lot of good things happening because of that relationship. So not because you you're like she's not Barbie or you don't have these you know feelings in the DVD that you know that crazy this you know come on don't don't don't don't don't dismiss the whole thing. You know, just hang in there. Maybe something good will come

00:34:27--> 00:34:30

out of this well like this versus Oh, beautiful. Yeah.

00:34:31--> 00:34:40

Salam confirms this. He says that if you dislike a manner of hers, why don't you bring up a good manner that she has?

00:34:41--> 00:34:55

Right? Isn't that there is I don't remember the the exact syntax of the Hadith. But you say he says that. Listen, she's a human being if you dislike something What about good things that she may have? Okay.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

financials is the responsible

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

Who? In Islam you have to take care of the wife, my friend, wife work in and bring in money is not going to work with that long hair of yours. All right. You have to you have to provide for the family. Yeah. If you want to be what if you want to be up if you want to be

00:35:21--> 00:35:29

the problem is we get these men Muslim men these days is our Mona Lisa and who provide for the family, his wife

00:35:31--> 00:36:08

to provide for their family. This karma comes with the money it doesn't you know, what did Eric in when you allow your wife and I'm not saying that by the way a lot of us may have to do this now you know, because of there is a need for sisters to be out there to help out with the community and and so forth or there is a need to make a living you know the man most of the times that the woman now gets the job the way that the society is structured, they got the woman out out there, but but listen if you allow this to happen, that means you have lost half of your power 50% of your power

00:36:09--> 00:36:23

so you have to you have now to be what Come on let's talk about that sweetheart. You know you are new Aren't you and me are in charge is not me in charge is not you're no longer in charge. Yeah. So that's that's the responsibility. I look at the verse.

00:36:24--> 00:36:38

Look, look the beautiful disagreements and reconciliations conflict resolutions. The way to go about it. read verse 3535. And 128 me make

00:36:40--> 00:36:46

any Moroccan half moon Valley her new shoes and Robin Fela Jr. Halima a useless habit you know Huma

00:36:48--> 00:37:17

sulha was searched for hobbies, soulful hobbies that make try to make peace between husbands and wives you know, and the along the famous lF verse 35 if you feel a breach between them then appoint one from her side and another grown up from the other side. When 15 shikaka in EMF abasto hackerman min Li wahaca min min

00:37:18--> 00:37:21

ie the slash your flippin level.

00:37:22--> 00:37:30

So the man should appoint someone who's a grown up from the family you know and and the women and they sit together and they settle these disputes.

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

Listen

00:37:35--> 00:37:42

divorce is a resort in Islam you know we have these religions whether they like Christianity you know Christianity refill you

00:37:44--> 00:38:13

it's a capital punishment, you know, it's a terminal when you marry somebody, you know, divorce in Islam is is a valid resolution, some marriages, you know, are not going to go on so what, but now follow the etiquettes you know of divorce, give the rights Don't be abusive, and and so forth. So try to do this in a good way. But if they separate you vanilla, who will follow the law, who cola min Sati

00:38:15--> 00:38:20

dealing with those who corrupts these, you know,

00:38:21--> 00:38:35

adultery and stuff like that. And we know that this verse was abrogated by salatu salam to know if you saw that and he said, well, we'll let the Athena minister confess that shieldwall in our bottom income

00:38:36--> 00:38:42

booth, it was abrogated by the verse in Surah thenew Jani

00:38:43--> 00:38:45

teaches us also how to deal with this.

00:38:52--> 00:39:08

Look at number 10 and the last one in that part of the of the surah Don't be jealous of one another. You know, while at the time and now Mayor de la Habibullah kumala don't wish to have what the woman has

00:39:09--> 00:39:15

huh? Isn't that the cause for the the emerging of a third gender now in the world?

00:39:17--> 00:39:35

Isn't that a man and Allah made you a man man look like a man man? Come on, man look like a man. I mean, Allah made you a man. Why would you have this thing and and then try to make yourself beautiful and have Nicholas and and, you know, I'm sorry. I look like a man man.

00:39:36--> 00:39:46

You know, so don't don't don't wish to and the woman shaves her, you know, women when they shave their head like this and they walk around like, like, you know, on the musculars and

00:39:47--> 00:39:51

one at a time and Noma Mahi Allah made you a man

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

or a woman. Be happy with who you are. Be happy with you are, you know, Islam teaches you that don't be jealous of one another. Don't say

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

Why he gets one and I get half my wife in the law of inheritance lately decade Miss Lu. Allah said that Carlos semana Ravana. This is part one, part two,

00:40:14--> 00:41:02

protecting the rights of the minority groups. So we talked about the segment of what of the women. And that's by the way third of the surah talks about this third, another third of the surah talks about what talks about the minority groups. Remember now, you're a Muslim leader, in charge of hypocrites, in your community, in charge of disbelievers who are around you, and charge of people of the book. So you have to be just unfair to everybody without compromising without compromising your faith without compromising your beliefs. So let's hear protecting the rights of the minority groups. Again, the Muslims are leaders of the larger community. amongst this larger community are minority

00:41:02--> 00:41:05

groups. Muslims have to protect the rights

00:41:07--> 00:41:39

without compromising their beliefs, and responding firmly to those who cause harm to the larger community. What if the disbelievers attack you, you have to defend yourself you have to defend the community? What if the People of the Book who are living within your community breach that covenant like what happened with the with the with the with some of the Jews in Medina, if you deal with that you deal firmly as a leader, you can let these things go because this is going to cause the collapse of the community.

00:41:40--> 00:42:04

Look at this. I love this eco Villa I want you to read 10510 610-711-1310 51061 just just read it and then I'll explain to you the story behind it. And just to show you how Islam is a wonderful religion, about justice and fitness 15126107 and 116 just get a glance of it.

00:42:10--> 00:42:17

Okay, here's a story for the sake of time, right after one of the battles right after one of the battles

00:42:19--> 00:42:24

Pilla Hiva to said that it's Hi Bob, but I'm not sure Danny I haven't verified that

00:42:26--> 00:42:29

a very precious shield

00:42:30--> 00:42:31

was out there.

00:42:32--> 00:42:33

Very expensive shield.

00:42:34--> 00:42:50

So a Muslim stole it from the spoils of war, you know, they collect these things normally they collect whatever they earned from a battlefield, whatever the you know, the and then the the Prophet would take on on the chart that responsibility of

00:42:52--> 00:42:57

distributing it based on certain criterias who gets what and it's not

00:42:58--> 00:43:02

a Muslim stole it and he placed it inside

00:43:04--> 00:43:05

a bucket of flour.

00:43:06--> 00:43:10

Flour, right, that is the bread wheat

00:43:12--> 00:43:15

and the shield did the whole and that

00:43:17--> 00:43:19

shall be similar

00:43:20--> 00:43:26

bucket of a big bucket did a hole in it. So while he's getting it in his back

00:43:27--> 00:43:28

imagine

00:43:30--> 00:43:34

his trees was deep. So he ended up going and hiding it

00:43:35--> 00:43:38

at a house of his best friend who was a

00:43:40--> 00:43:42

trauma of nobody representing

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

keep this with you. Until I I take it from now until the

00:43:48--> 00:43:52

of course everybody had an eye on that chart and that shield everybody has an eye

00:43:55--> 00:43:59

they looked for what happened to it. Let's follow that trace.

00:44:00--> 00:44:02

So they ended up reaching the house of hope

00:44:03--> 00:44:04

that you

00:44:05--> 00:44:10

they searched his house they found the shield. You stole it. Nothing. You stole it

00:44:12--> 00:44:13

stole I didn't see nothing.

00:44:15--> 00:44:18

Who bought this, this Muslim? And he named them

00:44:19--> 00:44:25

so the Muslims sat together and they said listen, we're a new community in Medina.

00:44:26--> 00:44:33

And if we accused a Muslim of being a thief, this is when I give our community a bad name. Why don't we

00:44:36--> 00:44:51

just give it to the Jew man. So we we protect that a lot like that. Look at the first verse jabril comes look at the verse 105. Look at the jabril came down while the Prophet actually was sitting out there with them. And they are discussing this method

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

in and zelner illegal kita will have an STD maraca law whether the Koolhaas, any Nakashima was stolen

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

Let me ask Allah to forgive you for listening to this

00:45:05--> 00:45:13

and listen listening to such a proposal here, which is a just show you that quality

00:45:14--> 00:45:18

and justice is flow is not just for the Muslims

00:45:19--> 00:45:20

Oh,

00:45:21--> 00:45:25

never thought about one time he sat in front of

00:45:27--> 00:45:27

a Jew

00:45:28--> 00:45:39

and and the right was for the Jew justice justice, but this does not mean that I approve of his religion to you see differentiated in the two

00:45:40--> 00:45:42

they have something and this is something else.

00:45:44--> 00:46:07

So that that the story of the shield I explained the verses, justice for all. Look at this verse 36 it mentions all segments Baba law justice with a law that you worship Allah Hello, justice to the parents that you will dutiful to them justice to the kins justice to the weak justice to the wayfarer

00:46:10--> 00:46:15

neighbors strangers, slaves, anyone that you meet.

00:46:19--> 00:46:29

Number three, fulfill your interests in the law higher moral command to adult amanatullah. And if you know why this verse was revealed.

00:46:32--> 00:46:42

Look at verse number 58. Can you read verse 5858 58

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

dd WRT

00:46:50--> 00:46:53

You can also panela the disbelievers in Mecca,

00:46:54--> 00:46:57

even though they were accusing Rasulullah to be a liar.

00:46:59--> 00:47:02

To be a sorcerer, to be a fortune teller

00:47:03--> 00:47:16

to be possessed by magic by Eugene. But Subhana Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was their bank and security. What do you call that box that you get in a bank is called what security box?

00:47:18--> 00:47:26

Safe Safety Safety. If they want if they have something precious, and they want to keep it in a safe hand, please keep this with you. Imagine this

00:47:34--> 00:47:35

dude would give it to him.

00:47:36--> 00:47:59

Unbelievable. And this is the reason why I leave now Vitaly Bravo and this verse was there because of the idea. The other one was delayed his hegira from Mecca to Medina. Because the prophets Allah told him listen, I have all these things, I want you to give it back to the people who are gonna fight me after a year or two. You know who kicked me out of here. We have to give them back up.

00:48:00--> 00:48:26

You see, that's that's Islam. That's what Islam is about. And that's what makes it what conquer and penetrate hearts when you have that characters. You know, when you have that attitude towards, you know, that's why it's a legitimate way of life. That is appealing to everybody. the sanctity of life and wealth. Oh, you who believe do not eat the property of one another.

00:48:28--> 00:48:36

Unless if it is a trade, that's fine, but do not devour the wealth of one another unless if it is a trade show.

00:48:38--> 00:48:39

comitia lay

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

the sanctity of wealth.

00:48:51--> 00:48:56

And whoever kills a believer again, again, yeah, these are all what

00:48:57--> 00:49:02

are the obstacles of justice and mercy is being stingy?

00:49:03--> 00:49:08

People who show off people who look for, you know positions in this world.

00:49:11--> 00:49:21

Remind them to stand up for justice or you believe stand out firmly for justice as witnesses to Allah subhanahu wa.

00:49:22--> 00:49:26

Imagine the prophets of Salaam will be a witness on us on the Day of Judgment.

00:49:28--> 00:49:39

We finished Part Three next time. Well what about that? Okay, maybe we'll do another revision. And we'll have that PowerPoint out there for all of you. But again, remember this Surah Nisa

00:49:40--> 00:50:00

is about what swapnil Baqarah conveyed. The men had the curriculum the manuscript for you to be leaders in earth. Because Listen, a lot be beating us for this. We are the last oma our messenger is the last messenger our

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

Book is the final book, who else is going to do it? But we have to fulfill the conditions of this, how to deal with the guidance, we make the deal of the unseen and we execute the commands without questioning without, you know, finding ways to evade it and not do it. Now be steadfast in Allah and Ron, now comes Surah Nisa to tell you a sign that you're doing the right thing as a leader in earth. you're protecting the rights of the weak, the oppressed, the non Muslims, the minority groups, you're honoring everybody, again, without compromising your beliefs. And while being firm against anyone who may threaten

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

the harmony of your community, you're getting that inshallah we will do another part of solar in

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

Africa two will equal hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen
