00:10:11--> 00:10:18

the higher aim of the surah brothers and sisters in Islam administer through justice.

00:10:20--> 00:10:21

So panela

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

let me just give you

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

an insight which is going to help you a lot understand the sore.

00:10:33--> 00:10:38

You see, one of the things, which helps me

00:10:39--> 00:10:46

and other students have knowledge in this using a higher aim of a chapter

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

is the period of Revelation.

00:10:53--> 00:11:00

Because like we said before, the Quran is a unique text, scripture.

00:11:01--> 00:11:05

Once it comes to the way it was revealed,

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

all the previous books, brothers and sisters in Islam were revealed at one time,

00:11:13--> 00:11:20

Torah, all of the Torah one time, indeed, all of the Injeel in one time the Quran know,

00:11:22--> 00:11:29

the Quran was revealed in 23 years and two months to be accurate all together.

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

Now, brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:11:34--> 00:11:46

you will be amazed to find out the way that Islam evolved during those 23 years is

00:11:47--> 00:12:02

a template which will last until the day of judgment because Islam went through all the stages that you may think of. And this is why the Quran is a book of guidance until the day of judgment. What do you mean?

00:12:03--> 00:12:25

Initially, Islam started with one individual Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, and I'm talking about them and dated Islam because the religion has been always Islam. So let's correct that. But the final mandate, which was revealed to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started with him, then few individuals

00:12:26--> 00:12:45

and then in secret for three years, imagine this Islam, three years in secret, then proclaimed, announced, okay, were Muslims, the community did not receive them well, because they will after

00:12:46--> 00:12:59

upsetting their societal norms, their lifestyle, the way in which they found their ancestor and sisters living.

00:13:01--> 00:13:12

And they want to continue with that Islam came to upset that. So there was a confrontation. Now, the non Muslim campaign had the upper hand

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

because the Muslims were outnumbered. Beside, they were not allowed to react at all, just in self defense, if they can.

00:13:26--> 00:13:30

And as a matter of fact, not even that at this stage,

00:13:31--> 00:13:40

when the relationship between the Muslims and the non Muslims went to a deadlock, at the end

00:13:42--> 00:13:54

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam decided to fer to look for another location for that hour. Then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam established the first Muslim community

00:13:56--> 00:14:05

but in that Muslim community brothers and sisters in Islam, which is Medina, there were other people who follow other faith,

00:14:07--> 00:14:44

Judaism and Christianity in particular, so panela that is why Medina was chosen. Because these are the three bro dominant religions. Abrahamic they call them even though I don't like that terminology here because Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was a Muslim like us. But Allah, in his eternal knowledge knew that this is the place where these religions will be between them. Now, Islam was leading the community. The Prophet was the Emmys was the leader.

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

And under him comes Christian and Jews as well. And they existed and he treated them justly and fairly, and he established a covenant with them, brothers and sisters in Islam. And then finally, Islam conquered

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

became a universal religion. You see those 23 years. In every stage, there is a lesson learned. Now, let's understand Surah

00:15:11--> 00:15:43

An Nisa in that context Surah Nisa was revealed during the time hoonah Rasul Allah wa sallam was the leader of Medina, under him comes other segments of the community, minority groups, and also non Muslims, and also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Muslims were commanded to administer justice, if they are to lead the larger Muslim community, you're getting that

00:15:45--> 00:16:33

you're getting the like, quite frankly, let's be fair, like in America now. You know, America, I mean, in Canada and America is much better than Europe, we have a way that we have religious freedom we have that's, but in a certain way, without compromising our faith, we're supposed to do that, without compromising our faith. I could not cut down the number of slides, I have 45 slides for you. But a lot of these slides are references. I'm going to give you the number so make sure that you have a notebook of Quran handy, or a pencil I'm sorry, and a notebook and a Quran handy. So you can record the references as we go and Sharla but the surah is very easy to understand.

00:16:34--> 00:16:35

Let's move on.

00:16:37--> 00:17:26

Here is my agenda. I like to connect with batara, Allah a moron and in Nisa together, let's connect the three together, because they will not brothers and sisters in Islam, the author of the most half was not a random order. There is a reason for an ISA to come after Allah Emraan. There is a reason for Allah amaranth because it's a divine order. We believe that even though there are some jurists, some scholars who say otherwise, we say that the order is not the TV, but we believe that the order is TV. But yet, the functions of adjust leader, the definition of a califa basic information about Surah Nisa, the higher aim of the surah, like we mentioned, to administer justice, for all

00:17:26--> 00:18:17

administer justice for all segments of the community, whether Muslims or whether non Muslims whether we were oppressed, but then the surah emphasizes for three groups, three groups, the orphans, the women, and the minority groups in the community. And then the last item on my agenda today is what shapes the Muslim character. You see, for you to be just unfair. You must have certain tenants, certain things which shapes that you don't wake up in the morning and you find yourself just 10 feet, you don't do that. You don't you don't do that. You're getting that. You don't take a bill that says okay, this bill is to be justice. Just unfair. You don't do that. There are things which

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded us to do, which will shape your character where you can become just unfair to everybody. Let's move on.

00:18:30--> 00:18:40

Our next slide here, brothers and sisters in Islam, is the connection between Al Baqarah and Allah amaranth. Remember Surah Al Baqarah Bri be the oma to lead.

00:18:41--> 00:18:56

That chapter presented the guidance with it is two parts, the F bar the information and the commands. What should we do with the F bar, the unseen does deep? I believe it.

00:18:57--> 00:19:06

There is a punishment in the grave. I believe it even though I go and I open the grave, and I only see bones, I believe that is upon us because a lot told me this.

00:19:08--> 00:19:09

A lot told me this.

00:19:10--> 00:19:25

His messengers told me this commands, even though doesn't make sense to me. Even though I cannot do it send me an outline and principle. None of us can fulfill the commands under percent but in principle, you have to be willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill it.

00:19:26--> 00:19:39

And if you fall short, Allah at least laid it over. You can come back make Toba. Step Four. There is an expiation for a certain sense, clear. There is nothing wrong with that for you, then what Allah Allah Imran did

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

came and told you to be steadfast. Stay still on this. Stay still on this. Some people are gonna try to come and move you like the delegation of Iran. Coming to the prophets, Allah Salam and making him doubt the status of Isa which he was for told already by Allah that

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


00:20:03--> 00:20:07

Illa, Illa, Allah in Edina in de la Hill Islam,

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

Islamic firm be firm

00:20:13--> 00:20:18

commands learn from the experience of the Sahaba on the day of offered.

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

They saw the battle is over. The disbelievers are being chased. The Muslims are chasing them out of the battlefield. Let's go and help them laugh. Rasulullah told you not to leave your position. Even if you see them chasing chasing us to Medina, or you see us chasing them to Makkah and some wording

00:20:44--> 00:20:45


00:20:46--> 00:21:00

steadfast, then comes in and Nisa to send a clear message to you. You're only gonna be a successful leader. If you administer justice for all.

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

Observe the rights of people.

00:21:05--> 00:21:16

You're not a leader just to be called Your Highness and Your Excellencies and, and to have bodyguards running around, you know, it says responsibility.

00:21:18--> 00:21:46

Brothers and sisters in Islam, something that amazes amazes me, you know the Hadith regarding the seven who will be shaded under the throne in the Day of Judgment, where there will be no shade, other than the shade of the throne of Allah subhana wa Taala. If you read this hadith carefully, it has different ways different total, we call a total different group of narrators.

00:21:48--> 00:21:51

A lot of these narrators, they change the order of the seven.

00:21:53--> 00:22:09

Like sometimes you would find the dying man who was raised up in is number two, the man whose heart is hanging in and then the masjid number four. But they all agreed on one thing. They all started with Mr. Moon,

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

adjust leader adjust ruler.

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

You know why? Because it's difficult. It's not easy.

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

Authority is a fitness.

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

Authority is a power.

00:22:27--> 00:22:35

That is why when you have it, and you're just unfair, that is your rewards. Linear that

00:22:36--> 00:22:50

is this the color to be unjust and theories. Do you understand this? So So Lisa comes in and says well be just undefeated to everybody. For you.

00:22:51--> 00:23:13

I can explain the inside here here is in this app comes in Surah Nisa a clear message to the leaders, pluralism, pluralism, that's the term I was looking for. justice and mercy are the basis of governance. So administer to justice, show mercy for all for all. For your

00:23:15--> 00:23:53

brothers and sisters in Islam. This is the duty of adjust leader four things. four things to establish. And this is the definition of halifa according to some scholars, according to some scholars, you know, when they explain the word wave parler Abu Khalil mela ekati in ej, don't fill out the haleiwa a lot when he said to the angels I'm gonna place a visor. That is that the beauty of the vise during the califa the four things, the four things number one, himself to establish the worship of Allah to inhabit Earth. That is why you need knowledge.

00:23:55--> 00:24:12

You need to help people earn their livings as a leader. You need to find ways for people to earn the livings three to call people to the worship of Allah. Look at number four, to administer justice for all to be just and fair for all brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:24:14--> 00:24:34

For your basic information about Surah tunisair we're gonna rush through this Surah Nisa has 176 verses. Of course it was revealed in Medina, the second longest chapter in the Quran after Surah Al Baqarah. It is one of the seven chapters. The Prophet said something about the first seven chapters

00:24:36--> 00:24:41

and one of them is ill unfettered and Toba. Both sewers, the first seven

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

whoever learns and understand them is a school

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

Yani it must setback for hoo ha ha ha, boo. Oh, come up, tell us a lie cell. Imagine if you comprehend those seven long sutras you are

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


00:25:01--> 00:25:10

and one of the ways to comprehend them is to get their higher aims and that's what we're doing in Sharla Sorokin is our brothers and sisters in Islam also

00:25:11--> 00:25:12

Surah Nisa

00:25:14--> 00:25:15


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

come on

00:25:24--> 00:25:33

focuses on the fact that we are one big community and this is made clean imagine the sort of begins with what

00:25:36--> 00:25:43

Johan su tiempo Banku moolah, the Kala comin?

00:25:44--> 00:25:49

Neither all mankind, be conscious of Allah.

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

Allah is watching you

00:25:52--> 00:25:55

Who created you from one soul, Adam.

00:25:56--> 00:26:18

And from Adam Allah created Eve holla caminhada. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is reminding us with the higher lineage, not just the faith lineage or the blood lineage law. If you trace all of us back by the way, we're brothers and sisters in humanity, in humanity.

00:26:20--> 00:26:29

Look from the very beginning, oh, people feel your Lord who created you, all human are in fact related, sharing the same origin

00:26:30--> 00:26:33

and the same common ancestry.

00:26:34--> 00:27:03

We must follow mercy and apply justice to all follow human humans, no matter how near or far. Justice is one of the Islamic major principles brothers and sisters in Islam, mercy and justice must be extended beyond blood relations. We must strive to promote cooperation cohesion. Brothers and sisters in Islam even while law he even even people

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

you like

00:27:06--> 00:27:08

you're supposed to be just unfair to them.

00:27:09--> 00:27:14

Well, and this is in the world. journeyman Khun, Shanna

00:27:18--> 00:27:19

the loo

00:27:20--> 00:27:31

the loo who only taqwa Do not let the resentment you have for some people drive you to be unjust unfair to them.

00:27:33--> 00:27:35

Because listen in for better and hope.

00:27:36--> 00:27:44

Love is in the heart is your there is no way you can control that you cannot control love that you cannot do it. It just

00:27:46--> 00:27:56

but you have to treat everybody fairly and justly. Regardless, even if you disagree with them. You have to be fair to them. Brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:27:57--> 00:28:11

Are you moving forward? I think I have to be faster than that. But I don't want to lose you. I don't want to lose you. And while I'm trying to be fast, inshallah. The surah focused in three segments of the community,

00:28:13--> 00:28:21

the orphans, the women and the minority groups, but look, minority groups without compromises.

00:28:23--> 00:28:34

Because if you have a Christian and you're not going to go and tell him Oh, you Christianity is right, you go ahead and you're going to paradise land, this has nothing to do with actually to be just to them that you tell them the truth.

00:28:36--> 00:28:37

without compromising.

00:28:39--> 00:29:06

without compromising, you're getting that there is a difference between telling them and compromising. So the surah focused on those three groups, brothers and sisters in Islam. And this is what we will address in sha Allah right here. Let's deal with the first one part one which is the orphans. So panela look at the second verse after Allah subhana wa Taala reminding us with the broader

00:29:07--> 00:29:13

relation lineage. Hmm. Then immediately what to Leah

00:29:17--> 00:29:37

deleeuw hobby bill, ye. Pay back. Verse two started with the orphans. So Pamela, why? Because an orphan is someone whose parents passed away the father in Islam father passed away, even if the mother is alive, still an orphan week. Now, be careful.

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

The first thing don't consume there are sources of the orphans are lawfully and be just with them. release their property to them when they become mentally mature to handle it and do not manipulate the process. Even brothers and sisters in Islam, look at the third polity. bubblegummy The famous verse of polygamy marry two three or four

00:30:01--> 00:30:14

A lot of you may not know that the context of this verse is about the preservation of the rights of the orphans. How, how, how brothers and sisters, you don't know how, look at this, look at this.

00:30:16--> 00:30:22

Someone will take care of the wills of Athenian orphan.

00:30:23--> 00:30:29

So a girl who had a lot of wealth, then I would go and take care of her wealth.

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

And then when she grows old when she's when she reaches the age of maturity, that she could get married. Now, if you let her go, give her in marriage to someone else, the money is gonna go to the people during that time that Bri Islamic, that's what they used to do. Okay, let me just marry her and keep the money.

00:30:54--> 00:31:31

We're in crypto, you have to marry her because you want to marry her. You want to honor her? Not to keep her money, you can marry 1234 Why do you take this one for the money that is consuming the wealth of the orphan and justly And then thirdly, here is related verses brothers and sisters in Islam regarding this verse number two, verse number six. Now that's where I want you to look at the references. Hmm, just write those. You when you read them, you're gonna enjoy the Quran, verse number, the verse, which really I in

00:31:32--> 00:31:33


00:31:38--> 00:31:39


00:31:42--> 00:31:43


00:31:46--> 00:32:29

those who devour the wealth of the orphan and justly they are eating up only a fire in their bellies and the Day of Judgment, they will be punished tremendously, they will be thrown in a blazing fire. We move to the second segment, the second, the women and sapan of law. Brothers and sisters in Islam, the surah was called the women and started and ended with rulings regarding women. Not only this, more than third of the chapter talks about the rights of women in the society.

00:32:31--> 00:32:35

yet why they accuse a slab of being

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

unfazed and just to women.

00:32:41--> 00:32:48

Why they attribute inequality in Islam towards women, there is something wrong here. And unexplained it you hang in there.

00:32:50--> 00:32:56

Unfortunately, brothers and sisters in Islam, unfortunately, come on, come on, come on.

00:32:57--> 00:32:57


00:32:58--> 00:32:59

Let me do this.

00:33:05--> 00:33:08

Unfortunately, brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:33:11--> 00:33:12

This is how

00:33:15--> 00:33:32

the point I was trying to make and I don't think I see the slide here that there were practices in the pre Islamic time, before Islam, towards women, which totally and feed,

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

cultural, societal. And by the way, I want to let you know that some of them are being practiced again.

00:33:41--> 00:34:26

Or revived again, with the absence of Islam in the lives of the Muslims. They actually went back to them. Now, a lot of the non Muslims they associate that Bri Islamic traditions, which are tribal, cultural, with Islam, they say this is what Islam teaches. Up to this, some of these practices are being already exercised as we speak. Look, imagine this is how a woman a girl, a female was perceived in Jay Z imagine when a father is giving news that his wife delivered the girl Oh,

00:34:29--> 00:34:30

Allahu Akbar.

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

What either Will she and I hired to whom bill?

00:34:39--> 00:34:43

Clean, yet out on.

00:34:44--> 00:34:49

Imagine my wife can imagine my wife deliver the girl.

00:34:51--> 00:34:55

And one of the things they used to do, they go and bury it in my life.

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

Imagine this is a woman This is a female in the beat slamming

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

Society, brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:35:03--> 00:35:29

Unfortunately oh here it is those who accused Islam of inequality regarding women's rights. They associate the Bri Islamic practices which may still be observed towards women right now after Islam. But for us to be able to clear this up, we must shed some light on the Bri Islamic practices and compare them with what Islam came to do.

00:35:31--> 00:36:24

Here is some of these pre Islamic Jamelia practices. In the Bri Islamic Jay Hillier that tribal system. So the source of guidance for the people regarding treating women is the tribal system. Man meat, not a human, not a divine man made traditions practices. women had no legal status father sold them daughters into marriage, for a price husband could terminate the marriage at will, women would have forced into marriage, women could not inherit property, women have had little or no property, no succession, they are not allowed to pass on their property to their offspring. Imagine this. And and more. As add to this they will use for labor. One of the most important rules for women is to

00:36:24--> 00:36:46

produce male children. Women also cook meals, milked animals, which fine as long as it is done in an honorable way. Not in a slave kind of way. Of course, there was an exception to this the upper class women usually had more rights than tribal women and my own property or even inherit from the relatives.

00:36:48--> 00:37:19

Now, look at the advent of Islam, with the advent of Islam, things shifted. The focus now is on divine guidance not tribal, a balanced regardless of the race. Under Islam, it was the moral and religious principles not tribal affiliation, that defined women rights. Islam acknowledge women as free human, equal to men. Let's deal with the first point here that we have which is inheritance. Women

00:37:22--> 00:37:24

are free inheritance. Look.

00:37:25--> 00:37:28

Both men and women get a shave.

00:37:29--> 00:37:49

And these are detailed in a verse. It's a law. relationship between men and women should be based on principles of equality and goodness. Here's the references in the Surah Surah verse number seven oh lidija de nasi boom mimma Tara Can anyone

00:37:52--> 00:38:31

in our sleep world in Nisa nrca boom M. Tanaka Noir. Upon a boon women inherit, men inherit not only men unfortunately we went back to this in some countries now they don't give women that inheritance. J Li. Allah commanded us regarding this you'll see common law Viola deikun. Live decade imiscoe have their own pain. So women are entitled to their inheritance and they could pass on also. They asked you about Allah Allah will kill Allah, those who leave neither descendants nor ascendance as heirs

00:38:32--> 00:38:43

if a man dies, leaving a sister but no children shall take half of his inheritance that is in Islam brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:38:44--> 00:39:30

women rights over their properties ownership their names and that is why sisters don't give up your names to your husbands don't do that. That's a mistake. That's actually a major sin Don't do this. You have you're entitled to your name to your property. This know Own your things in the Islamic tradition that our he was compromised. Sometimes husbands abused wives to force them to give up the dowry to get divorce. Sometimes women are inherited again is their will imagine this. Islam came and restored this said no look at the verses. Look, verse number four and seven, four and seven. Were to Nisa outside of God in any one of the conditions of the marriage contract for it to be valid,

00:39:30--> 00:39:37

according to the school of surgery, my medic is to give a dowry to a woman and according to the rest of the jurists, but they

00:39:38--> 00:39:41

future wife could forgive it would say okay, I don't want to worry

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

about but these are the conditions.

00:39:46--> 00:39:50

So, the dowry also brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:39:52--> 00:39:57

You're forbidden to inherit, you're not supposed to inherit them again is the will

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


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

In some cases, like I would give my wife at the field dowry, like i when i when i get married to her I get so excited. Then I write $50,000 right? And then you want to divorce her because you don't want to live there. You want to be with her but now you still have to give those 50,000 then what you do you give her a hard time she says Okay, you know what? I don't want to live with you. I'm just gonna let them know that look at this. Look at the front 20 but Okay, oh yeah. Oh, you believe Leah Hey Lula. comentario Nisa, Cara Walla,

00:40:37--> 00:41:23

Mathematica, I do not treat them harshly so that you can compromise them. Ah, don't do this. And and if you want to divorce her don't take anything from her mouth. How can you do this? That's her right? Imagine this is in Islam, brothers and sisters in Islam. Also Islam came and arranged the rules of marriage, especially concerning women. You know, if somebody can marry his wife, his father's wife, after he divorces her two sisters, of course, this is eroded. This is something Islam came and arrange this in shaba. This is another right which Islam came and talked about. Regarding women. Here is some related verses. Well, I think hamanaka acumen is a limited set of 2223 24. That

00:41:23--> 00:41:47

big verse that talks about not to force them into marriage, brothers and sisters in Islam. forced marriages are forbidden in Islam. There are conditions for marriage in Islam, one of them the consent of the wife, she must agree to that. They used to force them in marriage before brothers and sisters in Islam. Also a woman cannot give herself in marriage. We have to get the consent of her

00:41:50--> 00:42:06

guardian in sha Allah. Treat them honorably. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the best of you are the best to the women and am the best to my women to my financial responsibilities brothers and sisters in Islam and Islam is on demand.

00:42:07--> 00:42:56

Deja vu? Muna Nisa, edema, de la la, la hamana about but again the woman can help but don't forget that you compromise your karma you can be suicide now. You can be the 100% ruler of the house because you compromise this. Again we're we're we're running through this. Brothers and sisters Islam method of this agreement Islam came and define that what should we do with there is an agreement that arbitration conflict resolution of marriage. You know, this is something that is in Islam brothers and sisters Islam, verse 35 128, read these related verses, they will help you divorce may be a solution. Brothers and sisters in Islam. Islam sees divorce as a solution for some

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


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

For Raja Yoga vanilla who Kula Masada Look at verse number 130. But if they separate Allah will provide abundance for them. But there is a good way of separation inshallah. With this, we cover the second segment of the community, which is the women in sha Allah, let's don't be jealous of one another. I think that's an issue. Women is trying to be like men, men are trying to be like women. I think that's a promotion by a non Muslim ideology here. You know, we shouldn't be well at a time and now look at this verse, verse 32, one at a time and na, de la la Habiba. kumala literally jaleo Cebu max so why don't we say that a lot giving you certain users give them in certain you don't wish to

00:43:41--> 00:43:56

be a woman if you're a man, that's right. Oh, here they don't look like a women look like a man man. don't wish to be a mountain don't don't shave your head. Don't do that, like a man No, and a lot curses women who try to mimic men and men who try to look like women brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:43:57--> 00:44:29

But let's move to the final segment here, which is the minority groups. Again, the Muslim are leaders of a larger community. amongst this their group. There are Christians that are Jews, brothers and sisters in Islam. The first thing that we have to do is to administer justice for all administer justice for all brothers and sisters in Islam. A Look at this story. And I have to let you know that story, which is explained just mark 1051061071 way these verses

00:44:31--> 00:44:36

there was a battlefield that school the story of the shield because of the dollar.

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

There was a Muslim who accepted Islam who was known to be a thief before Islam, and he became a Muslim.

00:44:46--> 00:44:58

So they piled up the spoils of war after one of the battlefields after one of the battles in the battlefield. The Muslim went and he stole a very precious expensive shield.

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

He used to have a Jewish friend. So he placed the shield in front and inside the back.

00:45:06--> 00:45:11

And he went and he said to the Jews, please keep this in your house until I pick it up.

00:45:13--> 00:45:20

So panela somehow the Muslims discovered that this shield is in the house of bedroom.

00:45:21--> 00:45:34

So they went and searched his house. They said you stole the shield, is it? No, I didn't steal it. This man taught me if nobody raised his name. He brought it here and he said, He's my buddy and he said to keep it for him.

00:45:35--> 00:45:52

So imagine the prophets of Salaam sitting with his companions and trying to figure out what are we going to do? sauce few Muslims who are relatives to the thief. They said O Messenger of Allah with a new community here in Medina. And you know

00:45:53--> 00:46:01

it's a bad thing to say about us that we are thief's, we have a thief amongst us. Why don't we just accuse the Jew of it?

00:46:03--> 00:46:13

They just give it to the Jews. Look at this now. Do you bro Isla de Salam comes down with the diverse 105 look at it. Look at this verse read in

00:46:16--> 00:46:18

Isla de Cal kita

00:46:19--> 00:46:20

Lita Kumar,

00:46:22--> 00:46:26

Lita Kumar vein and CB ma,

00:46:27--> 00:46:29

ma, what?

00:46:31--> 00:46:34

He now has three ma was

00:46:37--> 00:46:38


00:46:43--> 00:46:47

Juana de la, De Nile.

00:46:49--> 00:47:19

So, indeed we brought the Koran the book down on you, oh Mohammed, to administer justice between people amongst people, not Muslims. You're not there to favor them at law, justice for all. Brothers and sisters in Islam lie this religion is great, while lajitas religion is is the best is the best in the whole world. If we implement it in our lives,

00:47:20--> 00:47:29

read this the story of the shield many of the verses are the inshallah brothers and sisters in Islam. I'm going to rush through this because time is running out.

00:47:31--> 00:48:16

Deliver the trust in a law higher moral command to Abdul MNL de la jolla voli. Allah commands you that you should render back that trust, regardless of who they are brothers and sisters in Islam, the sanctity of the human life, whether he is a Muslim, or not brothers and sisters in Islam. The prophet will witness against us in the Day of Judgment, whether we have been administering justice even towards non Muslims or not brothers and sisters in Islam. avoid being boastful. This is one of the things which may come between us and administering justice the last part here and I will be done. What shapes the Muslim character. Brothers and sisters in Islam you need to understand this,

00:48:16--> 00:48:32

there is a huge connection between your belief system and your characters. This is why in multiple Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam period to look at this man cannot mean that he will Yeoman if you believe in Allah in the hereafter. This is beliefs

00:48:34--> 00:48:36

if you believe in it, that's beliefs.

00:48:37--> 00:49:27

Value cream bifa be generous to your guests value in Elijah to be fair to his table valuable higher on multiple ad Why? Because if you believe in Allah and His and that is just mean that one day when I stand in front of Allah going to stand Allah when I ask you why did you treat that do this way? Why did you treat that Christian this way? If you know this, if you believe that then you're going to administer justice well, because by default brothers injustice is something that we may be leaning to was full movement she I'm in New fusi for in Tara there effecting failure a Latin lie of limbo wahama lol insane winner who can have alumina hula, but you know, we're more into injustice.

00:49:27--> 00:50:00

But a person who does not commit injustice, he must have a reason he must have a motive. And this motive is what I feel a law and his punishment, I feel that they have judgment that I'm going to be answered for this injustice which I'm going to commit against that person. And that is why beliefs are manifested so much also a bad brothers and sisters in Islam. You were forming a bad law and we said that many times before. Avoid intoxicants and that is why there is a mention of Salah Antara insha Allah

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

00:59:09--> 00:59:15

It is not obligation upon demand to tell that he is doing that.

00:59:18--> 00:59:23

And is not a condition for the validity of the new contract. But I'm telling you,

00:59:24--> 00:59:32

if a man does this without killing his wife, he's already ruined the first marriage. already read it. Now

00:59:33--> 00:59:47

with the contract be valid if a sister writes that he cannot do this. Absolutely. And it's her freewill. Yes, you may write in the contract that you're not going to accept that. There's like a law failure

01:03:45--> 01:03:57

Mila is saying if there is a Hadith, whoever recites his daughter will be forgiven, even if he abandoned the Army's rank isn't abandon armies rank? Well.

01:03:58--> 01:04:01

You see Mila the way that you understand. I think

01:04:02--> 01:04:16

you're talking about the Horace Mann Kala stock for LA LA Vila de la, la La, la, la. Three times, all his sins will be forgiven. Even if he flees, it just shows you the weight of this

01:04:18--> 01:04:19

But of course, Kowloon your costs Allah

01:04:24--> 01:04:42

you know, when we look at a text like this, this is in a way to encourage you imagine is to give you hope. That's how we should understand this but it's not about legalizing fleeing from the battlefield because it is a major sin in Islam.

01:04:43--> 01:04:54

Is it permissible to use a Swiss gear back bag? No, take that look, take that cross out. I almost got that cross and if I see it, I'll cut it for you.

01:05:51--> 01:05:55

I promised to do this. I was asked two days ago

01:05:56--> 01:06:01

by brother a smile regarding performing air decaf

01:06:03--> 01:06:05

in the homes

01:06:06--> 01:06:14

and I said that Attica is in the massage it but some jurist

01:06:15--> 01:06:23

using the criteria that a woman may perform at the calf in her own

01:06:24--> 01:06:38

baits masjidul bait in her Masjid at his home at her home. That place which is designated for Salah in her house. They said the man now has to stay at home. So he may do that.

01:06:39--> 01:06:59

I take it back especially after hearing and after researching the matters, hearing Sheikh Abu Salah yesterday and researching the matters. Brothers and sisters in Islam. The opinion regarding a woman performing at the calf in her house

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

is weak

01:07:02--> 01:07:31

and the jurist who took that route. They are talking about the Salah, they are talking about the Salah, I want to tell you that if you do not perform at the caf this year and you will use to perform it every and you intended to perform it before the COVID-19 breaks a lot Allah will reward you but I advise you to observe the etiquettes of Attica at home.

01:07:32--> 01:08:21

Like if you really designate the time like the 10 nights to the worship of Allah, turn this into your house. Because when Allah Subhana Allah spoke about that the calf in the Quran wallet to Basheer one hour and to my Aki funa Phil massage at the gas is to be performed in them as Ajit not at home. That is the adopted opinion which I adopt right now. Brothers and sisters in Islam and I take back whatever I said earlier in the I think two days ago I believe I was asked this question in sha Allah jacamo lo hayleigh Don't forget tomorrow in sha Allah surah to Merida chapter five or up to five now inshallah brothers and sisters in Islam. As I said, I'm Ali Khan.
