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


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

one minute, yada,

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

yada yada,

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


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


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

yada. Nice

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


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


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


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

Boo Boo.

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


00:01:10--> 00:01:14

We begin the name of Marvel, praise and glory and mighty belong to a mother.

00:01:15--> 00:01:18

And we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure.

00:01:19--> 00:01:33

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 loved guides, knowing in the sky that whenever a mother leaves without guidance, there is no one that can guide

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

and testify that no one is worthy of our lives. No one's worthy of our devotion.

00:01:40--> 00:01:50

Nobody is worthy of our absolute dedication and admiration and obedience and surrender and love, without any partners to kind of choose abbreviating.

00:01:52--> 00:01:56

And that there's no one or the following accounting, it's a lot more of a system as far as the profit.

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

Oh, people of

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

all mankind, allies diligences. It's a nice

00:02:06--> 00:02:18

example of weapon. Be conscious of your loan. Be alert, observant of your Lord, who created you from a single soul and created from his spouse.

00:02:21--> 00:02:25

And created from these two many men and women.

00:02:27--> 00:02:38

And the fear of love by rule us one another, have your mutual rights. And be conscious, be aware also observe the sanctity of the

00:02:39--> 00:02:48

origin. Because in the law is a watch for what you do. We continue with our journey, our overview.

00:02:50--> 00:03:03

And we're still in limited resource the chapters around the kingdom in Medina when the first seeds or the first bricks are being laid or laid or the nucleus, if you will, of the Muslim Ummah,

00:03:04--> 00:03:14

is being set as being created, and then discussed, and the development of that, so that in and around the perfection of that, and now we are

00:03:17--> 00:03:31

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 profits have

00:03:32--> 00:03:36

led to leave the night prayers and impair your

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

then he said and I'm wrong

00:03:41--> 00:03:51

in that word, so there's a relationship between them one way or another. And so what is the relationship of Susan Lisa, to what we discussed

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

the development and the perfection of this woman

00:03:56--> 00:04:00

Surah Nisa, one of the most obvious things in the surah

00:04:01--> 00:04:44

from every single angle in this tackle, it is the most important quality, fundamental, that must exist for a map to survive. And that is we must be established on 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 glory to the most just and it's Lord loves justice, and it's more in our weekly justice. And then it's Lord will not give you towards justice, anything less, maybe more, but nothing less than justice, he will deal with justice.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

And so, begins with that from the minutes. It begins all mankind be conscious of your own true creativity. So it is rightly deserved, that it's only fair. At the end of the aim. It says what

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

And because he's only watching, you're not going anywhere. He knows his area, and you're not Felicity escaped me. So it makes perfect sense it's perfectly fair and logical that you uphold his rights 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 in 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 be attached or by yourself,

00:05:38--> 00:06:29

but it could be that any sad then marry whatever you please of women, it was to uphold justice for the automatic notice the theme repeating without getting into the 50 rules for a second. It demands from the homeland to live, just leave with this RV. To live upon it is dispositives trapeze street balance pad, for men and for women, with men and with women, with adults and with children with friends. Yes, even with enemies, whether you are nice, or whether you're angry in every case scenario, even on the battlefield, think 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 wouldn't there be

00:06:29--> 00:06:36

bloodshed? How was that just how is that fair, there are so many victims of masajid it's almost the first time

00:06:37--> 00:06:47

there's a different tone when he speaks up in the bathroom. When he speaks about the campaign's the words that take place. He says to kind of what I want

00:06:49--> 00:06:56

to do their feature median. And why is it that you don't fight for the cause of Alma, that's normal.

00:06:58--> 00:06:59

But in this, he says,

00:07:01--> 00:07:04

when to stop it. He said he was

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

reading that would be the mustafi meaning for the Pope. And for those that are suffering from injustice, and for the oppressed middle region, he wouldn't be sad when we then have men of women of our children, that

00:07:22--> 00:07:25

those that say are better athletes than

00:07:28--> 00:07:34

those that say, Oh our Lord, pull us out of this town of impressive people. What do I

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

grab for us?

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

from you, a

00:07:46--> 00:08:32

grant for us from you. A power and authority that is no secret that will grant us victory. This was the wording of the I so it's as if those that it may be received from their injustice. This is their your I was saying I was saying why don't you be the answer to the lie? Why aren't you the antecedent of their injustice? Why aren't you saving them from injustice? This is why I need your own? This is the online spectrum you You are my villagers, you are the ones that are supposed to protect and defend those suffering from injustice. Isn't that beautiful? Those that have a problem understanding the events in history. Why did the Muslims just mind their business? Why did they just stay in their

00:08:32--> 00:09:00

town? Why didn't they just stay in Medina because they were people outside suffering from injustice. That's why the offensive right? I just tell the difference. 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 any set of highlights.

00:09:01--> 00:09:28

And then there's another amazing scene certainly set a scene that if you're able to lock into your memory, if you're able to remember this, congratulations, you're a person of justice, you're a person of farriers, 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 enemies.

00:09:29--> 00:09:36

You know, there was a man that he was known to meet from the ensemble and you know, the odds are those that accepted the profits.

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

And they are the original residents of Medina said come live with us and they split half of their wealth and they sacrifice so much and you know what the other side are to the Prophet. Allah love our links and what they meant to me. There was a man among them who was going to be on site, at least at face value. Some narrations mentioned later on. He was the one that he was hired when he was a disbeliever or that in disbelief.

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

Lightning wasn't one of the only saw. But at the time of the incident, we think he's from young saw. So just keep that in mind. His name was machine if he knew about it, but she knew a lady. That's what he was known as.

00:10:16--> 00:10:29

This man despite being in Ensenada used to steal. So he stole from another Muslim man from the outside as well from the residents of Medina, he stole from him and his shield

00:10:31--> 00:10:32

is better cheated.

00:10:33--> 00:11:04

And then he tried to hide it inside a sack filled with flour, right with the flour. And the SEC had a hole in it. So when he realized that I'm going to get my cover is going to be blown stealing, but it's see leaking out and he still has to get on with it. Or he still hasn't he didn't he still hasn't gotten away with Viagra. So last minute, he said, You know what, now whenever he took this shield, and the fluid inside, he hid inside the home of a Jewish man in Medina. They say the name of

00:11:06--> 00:11:14

this Jewish man is now going to get a call with the shield as if he stole it from this man machine to do awaited.

00:11:18--> 00:11:31

What's the big deal? This is the best thing to do. Are they going to believe this Jewish man? Are they going to believe the Ansari let him carry this Believe me. This is the mentality that many people believe repeatedly.

00:11:32--> 00:11:44

It's no big deal, a loss of a job in his religion, it's as big a deal. When you commit an act. You have to carry yourself and the alarm down the IRS

00:11:46--> 00:11:59

will make some coffee and lie and whomever earns a wrongdoing or a see through may only be buried and then he accuses of an innocent person for for the

00:12:01--> 00:12:08

way mobila then he has taken on a great a great city for this webinar that we made a

00:12:10--> 00:12:57

few things you have to keep in mind. This is first of all, a law so agenda is called the Jewish man innocent. How is he innocent? he's guilty. 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 be pulled into this some of us a static sugarcoating to our fights. Right? You want your rights from your spouse or your child or whatever. So you go to the dean when it wasn't about the dean, it was about you. Right? This sometimes you just call a person deserving of wrong call him guilty of something unreality or misplacing and misusing I was just

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

religion, that's First of all, he called him innocent a Jewish man is setting the world alight. So

00:13:05--> 00:13:31

he reveals an iron he received reveals words his words from above seven sky sends them down to be recited until the Day of Judgment above to do what to prove the innocence of a Jewish man to prove the guilt of an unsolved man in the eyes of the people and I'm sorry man, what is it this is this is the ceiling of justice. This is the standard that are lost.

00:13:34--> 00:13:43

And so we are gonna continue to listen to me is really this much about your data analysis to the profits of a loved

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


00:13:48--> 00:13:54

And do not be an advocate or support or representative of the one who betrayed

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

what skills

00:13:59--> 00:14:26

and seek forgiveness from you know, was forgiving merciful, the seller see this was not a sin he committed to the law. But when they came to complain to him, he almost got upset and they would accuse the body than he did when it was found out but he didn't 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 would accuse this man of that was still

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


00:14:33--> 00:14:35

continue to the profit to the profits.

00:14:37--> 00:14:47

And don't debate don't argue with the with the people in the meeting about those who run with themselves. He wrote himself he carries him regardless of who he is.

00:14:49--> 00:14:57

And so unless a pattern was I wanted this from us, that's my suit. And then he said very early in the evenings as well in

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


00:15:01--> 00:15:40

To begin an assay, and in this room will, indeed, command part of justice is to give everyone their due rights to give all the Trust's to those deserving of them. That's part of justice, that you respect expertise, you respect experience, we give you everything into its end to those deserving of it, you don't trespass where it doesn't belong, whatever, I come from being a Nazi otaku in it, and that when you judge between people you judge based on justice, nothing else. Yeah, you live in Amman.

00:15:42--> 00:15:44

shuhada and whenever I

00:15:46--> 00:16:17

mean, oh, people are believers, you're a reliever be upholders of justice witnesses testify to it meaning to justice for Allah. You know, the scholar said one of the scholars they said What this means is that you must not have any motive whatsoever for your testimony. But the face of a law of syllogism, which means that if you are holding court to testify, you're not allowed to get paid for your testimony.

00:16:18--> 00:16:43

Be testifiers witnesses or a loved one or other abusive even if it's against themselves, or even if it's against your relatives, even if it's against your own parents is because you know many times when it's you it's very hard for you and your family and your relatives, to sign in anybody with them against the opponents. So when someone wrongs your family, your spouse, your child,

00:16:45--> 00:17:15

or you accuse them of that, at least is everyone always accusing others of probing 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.

00:17:20--> 00:17:29

Fear of love and the just affair between your children do not prefer one over the other. Even the prophets of Allah.

00:17:31--> 00:17:36

He said to us, when you are dealing with somebody in transactions that you

00:17:38--> 00:17:43

really never seen in any movie, it is unfair, and how long is how long

00:17:45--> 00:17:53

for a Muslim to take wealth from another Muslim, unless means completely content with that.

00:17:55--> 00:17:56


00:18:01--> 00:18:12

10 are all equal do not consume each other's well unjustly been about leaving fall asleep, that's very needy, unless you have a tree.

00:18:13--> 00:18:37

And there is mutual consent between. So if you pressured somebody into giving me if you outwitted someone into getting the burden, or you're fresh, pressed someone embarrassing someone to make the sale or to give you something and they gave you they gave it but they were not pleased with that this wealth is not permissible for you to take to that degree of law. So in order

00:18:41--> 00:18:51

to destroy the old he goes to destroy all the factors to destroy all the cultures that result and it came down establishing rights for women as well.

00:18:53--> 00:19:03

Do not inherit women against women. A woman was the property of her husband when her husband died, his family the inheritors would inherit the luminous Well, they wonder she would be there.

00:19:05--> 00:19:13

And it also established, inheriting women, but the women inherited that didn't exist, even if your father dies, you're not gonna get any money, even if you're a woman,

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

establish that justice as well.

00:19:17--> 00:19:36

And the idea of continuing 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.

00:19:37--> 00:19:41

So for example, suitability says

00:19:42--> 00:19:52

that a man can marry to take care of the orphans, the I women that he's pleased with two at a time and three at a time, and for the time leading up to 40 polygyny,

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

a person can quickly say that's not just that's not fair. Right? automatically. You would think this is the case.

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

The woman must also be allowed to have at least

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

the most correct definition for justice is the sharing economy.

00:20:12--> 00:20:45

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 than than the opposite how 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.

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

This is a very important point.

00:20:49--> 00:20:51

If every man marries a woman,

00:20:52--> 00:21:06

there will be 20,000 women without husbands. So there are two options, either number one, they're going to have relationships with these men without marriage, right?

00:21:09--> 00:21:37

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 actually is what happens, right? They're not being celebrated, because they because their moral code tells them You shouldn't have a husband. Islam says this is unacceptable. The woman has the right to have a hospital, even if that means that this other woman has to share her husband with this woman.

00:21:39--> 00:21:54

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

00:21:55--> 00:22:00

that cannot find a woman to marry. Islam says you have to be patient.

00:22:02--> 00:22:13

Islam says it cannot be understood. You need to fast on Mondays and Thursdays, you need to pull yourself together, you need to make your Apple watch some kind of a doctor who may open the door for you. If you're not doing

00:22:15--> 00:22:29

that, to these lapses, a person could say how is that today? We say if your mind cannot grasp the perfect balance of love. That's because me and you are not the last time. I mean, that's why in the province of a model.

00:22:30--> 00:22:44

This is not a tangent. Initially, Lisa, when two men came to him saying it's not fair, it's not fair. We had two lads next to each other. One of them belong to civilian, who's a relative of the province,

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

maternal relatives, and another man who's not related to the province, Hello, mother?

00:22:53--> 00:23:09

Should the water come straight to a plant first? Or should it irrigate this man's property before that? The province of love or any new citizen said the water is to go to a surveyed and then it will because he's in the island. And then it comes down to you.

00:23:10--> 00:23:11

He said, Oh,

00:23:12--> 00:23:28

is this because he's your cousin? You only said this because he's your cousin. He couldn't see that. And it seems fair. And this is correct. And this is the only way not to press away, because he's in the highlights or as a start up and come down to water the water.

00:23:30--> 00:23:43

So when he said that he assumed the province of Alberta was not being fair was not being just a last ditch reveals and sort of further on, let me know

00:23:49--> 00:23:50

when you said I didn't

00:23:52--> 00:24:07

know why they were Lord, they don't believe until they make you the judge in their disputes. And they don't find any ill feeling except in your version. And they surrender wholeheartedly. The next guy says whatever.

00:24:09--> 00:24:13

And able to lie to him in the math.

00:24:15--> 00:24:28

And if we were right on the obligating doesn't kill yourselves walk away from your homes walk away from your properties, most of them would not do it without adding them inside of them.

00:24:30--> 00:24:59

Why should the beater 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 feet. Meaning you may not see there's a benefit in killing yourself. It's not fair or walking away from your home. I love another commandment he commanded you'd have to follow because that is feriss Ferriss is what a monk writes, even if you cannot grasp, it was one of the major themes and sort of in itself.

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

Good morning

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

salatu salam ala.

00:25:38--> 00:25:59

So Susan, Lisa comes and introduces a completely new perspective on life style, not where the strong survive, but that we are all sleaze under the one that is most strong some kind of right even sukawati I did speak about

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

the structure of the home 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 to kind of remember that the man is the head of the general public.

00:26:18--> 00:26:21

The MTA might say no bla

00:26:24--> 00:26:25

bla bla

00:26:27--> 00:26:42

bla, and if they give him to this structure, which is right, if they will be you then do not violate better you remember the members of your household, your wives, because a law is high. What is great

00:26:45--> 00:26:54

is the chooses to establish this one. Because you know, when a society doesn't have justice, when people are easy go

00:26:55--> 00:27:34

about getting justice, when there's no justice, people lose hope. Right? People just give up, there's no point anyway, there's no point in trying. He's done so much to me, the 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 energy of one another. And so I 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 alphabet.

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

Soup Elisa will

00:27:40--> 00:27:59

call for it federal law, when you look at the people that are afraid to 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.

00:28:00--> 00:28:42

Even if it's just a loss of innocence, you know, those children who are afraid about those that are fearful of their children are weak, they can't fend for themselves, and they worry about them. The solution is what for the law, let them feel completely different than me right now. It's not to me just for you, because you're going to be just with me. And if you don't treat me fairly, then I'm not gonna treat you fair. And that's how society flows. That's how marriage is full. That's how every relationship falls. But when it is, forgive me for lack of a better word, a three way relationship, I am dealing with you because he wants me to, and he'll give me my rights, and you

00:28:42--> 00:28:59

deal with me the way he wants me to, then you will be a recipient of that justice will not be lost. You fear that your children fear of love, and I love it. That is the guarantee that is your insurance policy for your children.

00:29:00--> 00:29:01

There's one last time that

00:29:03--> 00:29:31

may not necessarily fall into the theme as clearly but very beautiful. I am in the center and the first half of social nice if a lot of so just says about those that push you to get yours where you think you're getting old. When you're helping yourself, you're helping others you're robbing the rights of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah describes this relationship very interesting. He says you will you need to love and you have to buy

00:29:33--> 00:29:44

Allah setting these rules for you that you may or you may think they're no good for you like kill yourself. Put your lives on the line, the verdict of the province of a model it says it

00:29:45--> 00:29:47

wishes to accept your

00:29:49--> 00:29:50

your return to

00:29:51--> 00:29:57

where you need to be later in the show as an attorney you may learn

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

and the people that follow

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

Their actions, meaning their desires, their world and their sinful desires they want from you.

00:30:10--> 00:30:47
