In 111, rather than staring at one stop to win around the entire island into only a few scenarios, the
main elearning there is
usually referred to an idea that was
number one less than each other. Why should one probably do whatever you want to?
Yeah in Vietnam or law happened to Kentucky went
to the moon yeah in the fall over the millennium. NFC Wahida. will follow Kamini handsome Jaya,
WhatsApp along at 11. He has enabled me he will have had an ID number and Karen Annie. Diva. Yeah, I live in La Nina. Double love our Bulu Oh, that's a de la, environmental and well Africa.
we begin the name of Allah All Praise and glory and mighty belong to Allah.
And we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure.
And we seek safety with him from the evil whispers within ourselves. And from the awful consequences of our evil deeds from a member of love guidance knowing in the sky that the river of mud leaves with without guidance, there is no one that can guide them and then testify that no one is worthy of our lives. No one is worthy of our devotion.
Nobody is worthy of our absolute dedication and admiration and obedience and surrender and multiple law without any partners to kind of in the garden exclusive breeding.
And that there's no one worthy of following the covenants Allah or are they gonna sit down and spread the profit and his message?
Oh, people will be mad. Oh mankind. Allah azza wa jal says in Surah Nisa,
it doesn't have to be conscious of your role. Be alert, observant of your Lord, Who created you from a single soul and created from it it's spouse, and an hour
and it created from these two many men and women.
And fear Allah by whom you ask one another have your mutual rights and be conscious be aware also observe the sanctity of your hand and the wounds that origin because indeed Allah is ever watched for what you do. We continue with our journey our overview of the Quran and we're still in the middle he saw as the chapters of the Quran that came down in Medina when the the first seeds or the first bricks are being laid or lead or the nucleus if you will, of the Muslim owner
is being set up as being created and then discussed on Bukhara and the development of the ummah. So Daniel Imran the perfection of that owner, and now we are wrestling with Nisa
which has a very special relationship with this same overall theme that is being produced as an example for humanity as an acid as a benefit for humanity. Because the province of Allah Are you offended? Let it's a lot too late the night prayers and you care you recited in Lakota and then Lisa and but earlier on
in that order, so there's a relationship between them one way or another. And so what is the relationship of Susan Lisa, to what we discussed have a knock on learning and development and the perfection of this woman.
Surah Nisa one of the most obvious themes in the Surah
from every single angle with this tackle, it is the most important quality, fundamental, that must exist for a uma to survive, and that is we must be established on and it must be established upon justice must live by it, and it must live in for it. Because this is supposed to be an old man that believes that its Lord is the most just and it's Lord loves justice, and it's more than obligation to justice. And then it's Lord will not give it for its justice, anything less, maybe more, but nothing less than justice, he will deal with injustice.
And so certainly set begins with that from the Get It begins all mankind be conscious of your Lord who created so it's his right he deserves that it's only fair. And at the end of the aisle, it says what
And because he's fully Ouachita, you're not going to get anywhere in the desert, and you're not going to seek to escape him. So it makes perfect sense. It's perfectly fair and logical that you have all this right above all else. And in that I talks about fulfilling the rights of those that have rights to you the wounds that the mother that carried you and the family she came from, which is you're an extension of, and then it goes on, to discuss being just to the orphans. And if you're unable to be fair to the child or by yourself for a while, but I couldn't be there. Lisa, then Mary, whatever you please have women want to hold justice for the orphans. Notice the theme, repeating
without getting into the filthy rules for a second. It demands from the owner to live justly with this argument, to live upon is dispositive stopping the straight balance path for men and for women, with men and with women, with adults and with children with friends. Yes, even with enemies, whether you are pleased or whether you are angry in every case scenario, even on the battlefield, you think wow, of all the places to talk about justice in a time when two armies are clashing or why a battle takes place in the first place out Why would there be bloodshed? How was that just How is that fair? There are so many victims, Allah azza wa jal, it's almost the first time in the Quran, there's a
different tone when he speaks up in the bathroom. When he speaks about the Academy's the wars that take place. He says some kind of dialogue will lead to a lot to do the feasts and median. And why is it that you don't fight for the cause of Amma? That's normal for the cause of the muzzle problem. But in this sutra, he says the pattern will direct well and to solve our fee. He sent me the last piece of editor with visa vie Mustafi meaning for the club and for those that are suffering from injustice, and for the oppressed middle region, it wouldn't be sad when we then have a merit of women of our children that Alina to do those that say rebellion affliction in the Permian employed
in the doula those that say Oh our Lord, pull us out of this town of oppressive people. What are
what are you gonna do Guess who's gonna grant for us?
From you, a
grant for us from you a power and authority that is not see or that will grant us victory. This was the word that that will be added. So it's as if those that maybe received from their injustice. This is their your I was saying, I was saying Why don't you be the answer to them? You are? Why aren't you the ethnicity of their injustice? Why aren't you saving them from injustice? This is why I made good Oh, my God, this is the online spectrum. You You are My believers, you are the ones that are supposed to protect and defend those suffering from injustice is a beautiful, those that have a problem understanding the events in history. Why did the Muslims just mind their business? Why
didn't they just stay in their town? Why didn't they just stay in Medina because they were people outside suffering from injustice. That's why the offensive right not just self defense, they went on the offense why for justice, they went on the offense to defend freedom, because freedom cannot defend itself. And so our dean said, there has to be justice for all, not just for you. And so sort of an accent I liked that. And then there's another amazing scene Certainly, sir, a scene that if you're able to lock into your memory, if you're able to remember this, congratulations, you're not a person of justice, you're a person of fears, and that is being just with your opponents being just
with the people that disagree with you, being just with the people that are hostile towards you being just even with your elements.
You know, there was a man that he was known to meet from the ensemble. And you know, the ensembles that accepted the prophets of Allah, Allah and he said that when everybody rejected and they are the original residences, Medina said, come live with us, and they split half of their wealth and they sacrifice so much and you know, on the other side or to the Prophet salaallah Onyx is what the Minister knew. There was a man among them who was from the on site, at least at face value. Some narrations mentioned later on. He was he was hiding that he was a disbeliever or that in disbelief at the end.
It was fine. It wasn't one of the on Assad but at the time of the incident we think he's from the outside so just keep that in mind. His name was machine if you obey but she didn't obey the last line is what he was known as right?
This man is wiping and unsalted used to steal. So he stole from another Muslim man from the outside as well in the residence of Medina he stole from him his shield is there is metal sheeting.
And then he tried to hide it inside a sack filled with flour, right with the flour, and the second of all in it so when he realized that this I'm gonna get my cover is going to be blown stealing that it's seeking leaking out and he still has to get on with it, or he still hasn't hit it. He still hasn't gotten away with the act. So last minute, he said, You know what, now we're never he took this shield, and he threw it inside. He hid it inside the home of a Jewish man in Medina. They say the name was literally
this Jewish man is now going to get caught with the shield as if he stole it from this man, but she didn't do away.
She had no business thinking, what's the bigger deal? This is the best thing to do. Are they going to believe this Jewish man? Are they going to believe me on Saudi, Let him carry this belief. This is the mentality that many people feel repeatedly if it's no big deal, Allah azza wa jal in his religion, it's as big a deal. When you commit an act. You have to carry yourself and it's a lie. So it says down.
Well made XC cote at an LP and whoever earns the wrongdoing or sitting through may only be Betty and then he accuses of it an innocent person for the termina Butera way mobila Then he has taken on a great a great city for this planner that he made.
A few things you have to keep in mind this is over on the side. First of all, Allah azza wa jal is calling who the Jewish man innocent. Is he How is he innocent? He's guilty of oh, he committed? Yes. But in this in this situation is innocent of that accusation. He's not guilty of stealing. So don't mix things up. Don't give an Islamic sugarcoating when you're trying to fall into this Allah was a static sugarcoating to our fights. Right? You want your rights from your spouse or your child, whatever. So you caught the deal when it wasn't about the dean, it was about you. Right? This sometimes you just call a person deserving of wrong calling guilty of something when in reality
you're misplacing and misusing Eliza just religion. That's first of all, he called him in a Jewish man. Yes. Second, the word Allah azza wa jal at this higher he reveals an iron he was ever really words his words from above seven sky sense that there to be recited until the day of judgment about to do what? To prove the innocence of a Jewish man to prove the guilt of an unsolved man listen the eyes of the people and I'm sorry, man, what is it this? This is the ceiling of justice. This is the standard that Allah Azza didn't want his own mind.
And so we are not allowed to continue if you listen to me I really this much a lot about your data medicine to the prophets of Allah Allah Allah says, What attracted me far enough Hasina and do not be an advocate, a supporter or representative of the one who betrayed
was Filipina and hola hola Rahim. And seek forgiveness from Allah. Allah forgiving merciful the seller see this was not a sin he committed to Allah Allah sending them but when they came to complain to him, he almost got upset that they would accuse the Ansari that he did that when it was founded. But he did it even that much removing it because it could translate later actions. Allah says to seek forgiveness for that he got a little bit upset that they will accuse this man of
what's going to be the law in Canada for Rahima. Wallet and Jeremy gunning Latina who's on the aisle continue to the profit to the prophets of Allah, Allah. Allah says and don't debate don't argue with the with the people we need about those who wronged themselves. He wrote himself. He carries him regardless of who he is.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to destroy us. That's my solution. And he said very early in the Surah evenings as well in Allah and to me that either
needing to begin an assay and as and as a whole will, indeed Allah commands you part of justice is to give everyone their due rights to give all the trusts to those deserving of them. That's part of justice, that you respect expertise. You respect experience, you give everything to its end to those deserving of it. You don't trespass where it doesn't belong, whatever I come to big and nasty and tackle move in it. And that when you judge between equal you judge based on justice, nothing else. Yeah, you live in Amman, Kunal Coleman live in District Shuhada. And whenever
people are probing Oh, people are believers, if you're a believer be upholders of justice witnesses testify to it meaning to justice for Allah. You know, the scholars said what other scholars they said, what this means is that you must not have any motive whatsoever for your testimony, but the face of Allah Silja, which means that if you are called in court to testify, you're not allowed to get paid for your testimony.
Be testifiers witnesses for Allah, whatever other abusive thing, even if it's against yourselves, or even if it's against your relatives, even if it's against your own parents. Yes. Because you know, many times when it's you, it's very hard for you and your family and your relatives, to cite it. Anybody with them against the opponents. So when someone wrongs your family, your spouse, your child,
or you accuse them of that, at least because everyone always accuses others affirming that everyone always says I'm a victim, right? How are you going to treat that person? In the masjid in school? When you hear these issues happen between families? Where will you stand? The truth is bigger than all yes, your family has rights upon you. But those rights do not mean they surpass the right of Allah to live a life of justice, even with your children, between your children, the prophets of Allah or your citizen sent to us.
Instead of Allah who are giving
fear Allah and we just affair between your children do not prefer one over the other.
Even the prophets of Allah Allah He said
he said to us when you are dealing with somebody in transactions, let's say you made a mistake elaborately never seen him at home. It is unfair and Oman is Hot or Not hot
for a Muslim to take well from another Muslim, unless means completely content with that. This was really sad, that had existed so that Nisa Allah azza wa jal says, he learns Hakuna T Java 10 Ratan Tata, all the vehicles do not consume each other as well, unjustly metabolically to fall asleep not fairly, unless you have a tree.
And there is mutual consent between. So if you pressured somebody into giving in if you outwitted someone into getting diverted, or you're fresh, pressed someone embarrassing someone to make the sale or to give you something and they gave you they gave you but they were not pleased with that. This wealth is not permissible for you to take to that degree of loss. So didn't want to do justice.
To destroy all the egos to destroy all the factors to destroy all the cultures, that result in inside came down establishing rights for women as well. Let me say I do not inherit women against their women, a woman was the property of her husband when her husband died, his family the inheritance would inherit the woman as well as they wanted, she would be their their surgeon. And it also established not inheriting women, but women inherited that didn't exist either. If your father dies, you're not going to make any money even if you're a woman, Allah, so to establish that justice as well. And continue and continue to give you an entire framework of the importance of justice. But
that's not all, to give you the definition of justice as well. Because every nation in human history, this is right. But they disagreed on the meaning of justice.
So for example, certain research says that a man in marriage take care of the orphans, the i Women that he's pleased with two at a time and three at a time and four at a time and you have to follow them religiously.
A person can quickly say that's not just that's not fair, right? Automatically, you would think this is the case
If the woman must also be allowed to have at least more husbands than
the most correct definition before just this is the last panel.
Because humanity hasn't agreed on a definition anyway, so they can't claim to say one thing that may not be just in your eyes, but it could be just in someone else's eyes. In fact, we can propose just for argument's sake, that it is more granting to the woman that imagined for Mary for wives and then the opposite.
It is more of a privilege for her in Islam in Islam. Imagine, imagine just that in New York, for example, there's 20,000 More women than men.
This is a very important point.
If every man marries a woman,
there will be 20,000 Women Without husbands. So there's two options, either number one, they're going to have relationships with these men without marriage, right?
Or they're going to not have a man in their life ever. And that's not the case. Let's let's be honest, Let's not lie to each other. This is not what happens. Option A is what happens, right? They're not being celebrated because they because their moral code tells them we should not if I can't have a husband asked to be patient, it slam says this is unacceptable. The woman has the right to have your spoon, even if that means that this other woman has to share her husband with this woman.
The argument is what the hypothetical, but let's say there are more men than women, and every man marries a woman understood. Every man marries a woman and there's 20,000 men
that cannot find a woman to marry. Islam says you have to be patient.
Islam says cannot be understood. You need to fast on Mondays and Thursdays. You need to pull yourself together you need to make your October SubhanAllah. Donna, you may open the door for you. If you're not acquainted, even genuinely.
That's what Islam says. A person can say how's that today? We say if your mind cannot grasp the perfect balance of Allah, that's because of me and you are not Allah subhanho wa Taala I mean, that's why when the prophets Allah, Allah Allah says, This is not a tangent. In Solomon Lisa, when two men came to him saying it's not fair it's not fair. We had two lands next to each other. One of them belong to submit in our was a relative of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam maternal relatives and another man who was not related to the province of Allah or anything. So
should the water come straight to a Zubaydah land first or should irrigate this man's property before that? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the water is to go to a survey and then it will because he's in the island and then it comes down to you.
He said Kong Hamlin is this because he's your cousin? You only said this because he's your cousin. He couldn't see that this is fair. And this is correct. And this is the only way not to press this away because he's in the island so as a start up and come down to water, the water is not gonna go uphill. So when he said that he assumed the province of Allah or I don't know Salem was not being fair was not being just Allah so did reveals and sort of Elisa further on letting me know that he had chemo caffeine natural Mela. So Mala Ji lluvia fusi him Hara Jemima Puglia where you said didn't want to sleep. Know why your Lord they don't believe until they make you Mohammed the judge in their
disputes. And they don't find any ill feeling except in your verdicts and they surrender wholeheartedly. The next I said what I will add in that category narrowly and able to do certain elegoo to women Dr. Mahathir Allahu Allah enough money maybe. And if we were to write on them, obligate us kill yourselves walk away from your homes walk away from your properties, most of them would not do it without and in that environment, you are gonna reveal a kind of failure on learning. Why should that pizza and had they done what we can do? It would have been so much better for them and it would have been a firmer foothold for them in their faith. Meaning you may not see there's a
benefit in killing yourself it's not fair or walking away from your whole Allah document and saying add up command Did you would have to follow because that is fairness. Fairness is what our love rights even if it cannot grass is one of the major themes and sort of in itself.
Salam wa salam ala Mala Mia Allah
so sort of in the sad homes and introduces a completely new perspective on life style, not where the strong survive, but that we are all slaves under the one that is most strong. So kind of water or even supernova, the idea that speak about our instrument and the structure of the hole and the man being the leader over his household, the end of the IS is what and this is also a condition for you to be just you must realize this, he says soprano at the end of the day, the man is the head regional power.
The NCIC for in Florida who further taboo Lila in Lamar Valley and Camila and if they give into this structure, which was set up right, if they obey you, then do not violate them. You remember the members of your household your wives, because Allah is High Allah his grades
is the Quran chooses to establish this why? Because you know, when a society doesn't have justice, when people are easygoing
about injustice, that when there's no justice, people lose hope. Right people they give up, there's no point anywhere. There's no point in trying he's done so much to me and good guys finish last and all the things we say nowadays, right? And not just they lose hope and they despair it builds inside them this hatred right this animosity for each other this envy of one another and so on was telegenic, commanded them to be just for him, even if they're not going to receive that Justice immediately back from the people. A completely different outlook Allah so this is assuming the sad when the upsetting the need, and I will cover cool and funny thing in the call for ID funny a double
la what when you're new to covenant city, the people that are afraid, don't be part of it. Your fear for yourself and for your future is you want to protect the future of your children. You want to secure their future, right? That's why you do whatever it takes to get it. Even if it's unjust, Allah azza wa jal to see, you know, those children who are afraid about those that are fearful of their children that are weak, they can't fend for themselves, and they worry about them. The solution is what?
Let them fear Allah completely different avenues right now. It's not to me, me just with you, because you're going to be just with me. And if you don't treat me fairly, then I'm not going to treat you very, that's how society falls. That's how marriages fall. That's how every relationship falls. But when it is, forgive me, for lack of a better word, a three week relationship, I am dealing with you because he wants me to, and he'll give me my rights, and you deal with me the way he Subhanallah wants me to, then you will be a recipient of that justice, it will be it will not be lost. You fear that your children, fear of Allah and Allah will take that is the guarantee that is
your insurance policy for your children.
There's one less and
may not necessarily fall into the theme as clearly, but very beautiful. And the center in the first half jokingly said, Allah says it says above those that are pushing to get yours, where you think you're getting older, when you're growing yourself, you're robbing others, you're robbing the rights of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Allah describes this relationship very interesting. He says you were you need to love and you have to balance
Allah set these rules for you that you make are hard. You may think they're no good for you. Like kill yourself. Oh, gotta get a hold to put your lives on the line, the verdict of the province of Allah.
Allah wishes to accept your
tell him you will return to where you need to be like to be your own a shell as an attorney, you may learn our way and the people that follow
follow their passions, meaning their desires, their world and their sinful desires they want from you
to deviate. But not just any little curse here or an insult, there's some harsh words or a few dollars, they don't want you to just to be committed in an instant, in a moment, an attorney who made and are leaner, they want you to deviate a great deal. You know, when people are saying, oh, man, you're so negative minded. There's another thing is conspiracies. The IFBB says there's people out there that want you to be exactly like better, for a whole number of reasons. That's not the point that multiple, but they want you to deviate just as much as the and they will not accept from you anything else had that the caveat the letter until you follow their way, their religion, their
their lifestyle, completely, and totally, they will not be pleased with you otherwise. So Allah wants to accept your opinions. And the followers, the slaves of their desires for what those differences are not the people know, they're the followers of their desires, that's who they are, that will they live with their slave suit, they want you to be like them, and Allah wants you to repent. So which of these two wants
to be a part of which of these two Iranians which is this and they wish that you know, that seven supposed to do free, that's supposed to fill you with strength? You know, if I were to tell you this, think about this for a second, my brothers and sisters really,
a mother pulled you into this message because he wants to forgive him, he wants to have mercy on him, he wants to put you in jail and you are not here for any other reason, you will not be here if you didn't love you and want this from you Subhanallah
and now when he just wants from you to take the first step that he will take 10 towards you, you know if I told you if I told you this considers I need I need your help if I go to an hour after football and I said to him I need if at
all. What are you going to say?
Say what needs whatever your the shape of the masjid are some things that affect you We are honored right? You wouldn't know you I know you would reject my requests.
Allah is requesting for me to enter J
A love wishes from you to remain.
You know what that's for? That strengthens you because some people say I just I can't do it. I can't I don't have the energy or I just keep slipping or you're not gonna tell me I don't have time I'm lazier. I'm tired. a loved one says now he wants that from you. For your good, not as good. I want it for me. He wants for you to have more time.
And so you know there's those fragile human beings to still never make it I can never be met in person I can never give up those things in my life. I can never be that person that perfectly just like sort of says describe it with whoever and everybody.
Allah so gently that same sort of says yes, and put him on center by inertia that he would be was creatively and some of those things are wonderful, unsettled. Or if I'm weak, what can I do? You know, in the shed, distributing this same sword that Lisa is the same soldier that says in the greater shape article robbery, the plot of chiffon is weak. So it's not that shape on its meaning. It's you never invited Allah azza wa jal into your life. You didn't begging him for help. He wants to make things easy on you, but you
