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

solid or dumb with this new policy you know when you were given a

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

woman with a certain day with the

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


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

let me start on Sunday where CVMA

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

let me send you you have only

00:00:38--> 00:00:54

I praise a lot of money and I said prayers and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam is not a family right just for families and all those that follow them the right guidance until the Day of Judgment me glory be to you or Ilana knowledge that we accept that what you were taught us Indeed you are the ongoing the lives

00:00:55--> 00:01:04

My dear brothers and sisters Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. We continue with the series of the verses of Surah Baqarah.

00:01:05--> 00:01:16

And last time, we were talking about the beginning of the section on many Salafi and how Allah subhanaw taala reminded them, of his many favors upon them.

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


00:01:23--> 00:01:30

Allah subhana wa Tada told them, commanded them to keep the covenant with him.

00:01:32--> 00:01:39

And then he also said to them, and commanded them that they should believe in the book that was revealed

00:01:40--> 00:01:54

that Allah subhanaw taala set down, and that confirms what they have the Torah and that they should not exchange this versus of a loss of power,

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

for something cheap for a cheap price, and that they should fear only Allah subhanaw taala

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

then Allah subhanaw taala says in these verses rather on the left,

00:02:09--> 00:02:14

when they attend, these will have Bobby Baggallini went up to a half hour

00:02:15--> 00:02:16


00:02:18--> 00:02:20

When attended this will happen in

00:02:22--> 00:02:25

just a few words, but

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

the meanings

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

that they cannot

00:02:34--> 00:02:38

are something else, whether that be through the mouth,

00:02:41--> 00:02:47

and lips, as many scholars or facilitator who was hurt

00:02:48--> 00:02:51

mixing things together.

00:02:52--> 00:02:57

So our last panel, the others do not mix

00:02:58--> 00:03:15

and help truth with welcome falsehood. Do not mix them. Do not conflate them, do not confound them, do not confuse them together. This is precisely what they were doing.

00:03:17--> 00:03:22

And this is one of the most sinister and dangerous ways

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

of hiding the truth.

00:03:26--> 00:03:32

And thus, afterwards, Allah subhanaw taala said, we're talking too much, and you conceal the truth.

00:03:33--> 00:03:37

This is one of the ways that you conceal the truth,

00:03:38--> 00:03:44

by not directly denying or rejecting it, but by confusing it,

00:03:45--> 00:03:57

by deeming it by playing around with it. So it's no longer clear, especially especially to those who may not understand.

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

So now you have to remember

00:04:02--> 00:04:09

that Jewish society at the time, and indeed, other societies.

00:04:11--> 00:04:36

Religion was in the hands of the priests, of the scholars. They're the ones who knew what religion was. They're the ones who used to read the book. You think people used to read the book? SubhanAllah. Sometimes we think rather innocently, that things were the way they are today. Oh, everybody's sitting there reading the Quran? No, it wasn't even available.

00:04:37--> 00:04:40

It was not even available to the common folk,

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

the priests and the scholars and the rabbis, they're the ones who reached to read the book and the common folk read the book. They didn't know what it meant, even if they had access, and we know for a very long time people do not have access. Same with the Bible. People did not have access until many many centuries later.

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

because it was not in the language they could read and understand. So who read it understood it, the priests, the men of religion, the men of learning, common folk did not have access to their holy book, much less know what it means. So much talent is now telling these rabbis,

00:05:22--> 00:05:31

these men of learning and religion, beware, do not confuse the truth and falsehood.

00:05:33--> 00:05:44

That becomes that much more dangerous, because it's almost like you are the door to the understanding of the religion. So whatever you do now,

00:05:46--> 00:06:14

the misguidance of everyone else is on your head. It's on your shoulders. You are the one who is kind of people they didn't know they didn't know any better. They were ignorant that they didn't even have access. To be able to understand well, I tend to miss what happened in marketing. Do not confuse it. Do not mix the truth and falsehood. Sort of universally from the gallery they said do not confuse truth

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

with lies.

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

Some said Do not confuse

00:06:22--> 00:06:23


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


00:06:25--> 00:07:03

Judaism and Christianity, the religion of the people of the book. Oh, they're all of a sudden Subhan Allah. We see whether therapies or have come in buffeted today, right? Oh, it's all the same. Islam, Christianity, Judaism, all of these religions, the Abrahamic family, right? It's all the same many roads to Rome, many ways to paradise and to the pleasure of Allah, it's all the same planet? Well, I think we sort of have covered the mountain, do not confuse not mix the two together.

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

And it's interesting, brothers and sisters.

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


00:07:10--> 00:07:11

International says,

00:07:13--> 00:07:23

some of the greatest misguidance in the religion of Islam itself comes from this, without them this would have come about

00:07:27--> 00:07:32

coming out and saying outright, this is wrong.

00:07:33--> 00:07:47

We do not agree with this. This is not from Allah, this is very clear and easy to respond to. Okay, this is the way of the disbelievers the relevance of Allah. But confusing truth with falsehood,

00:07:48--> 00:08:08

covering truth with layers of falsehood, so that no one can see it. And very few people can understand this is sinister. This is malicious. This is the work of the wonderful team. And that's why it's interesting, even delayed when he talks about these, as he says Al Kitab, well when

00:08:09--> 00:08:14

he puts them together, and indeed they were hypocrites and whatever came from and repeated themselves.

00:08:18--> 00:08:22

misguidance in the religion of Islam, of course,

00:08:23--> 00:08:27

go back all the way to hell over it then

00:08:28--> 00:08:30

from the time when they

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

after the Prophet died,

00:08:34--> 00:08:50

and the wars of apostasy happened because they refused to pay his account. Because they said, we used to pay this account to Rasulillah seven now it's not clear so we will not pay this account.

00:08:55--> 00:09:09

Is this whether this has happened about an absolutely there were people who are confused when I go back and said I will fight those who separate between Salah and Zika. Some were saying

00:09:10--> 00:09:11

but the pre

00:09:15--> 00:09:19

also plan to add a guided his heart and his intellect.

00:09:20--> 00:09:32

But others found it. Heavy Hitter possible argument they used to break through the day they used to be the setup and now he's not there. So what

00:09:35--> 00:09:36

was the better thing to say?

00:09:38--> 00:09:53

Well let him we should have come in rather than let it continue to happen. And this is from the beginning of Islam. So you can imagine what a tempest would have happened with butter kept on getting worse over time. If it happened immediately after the death of the prophets of Allah valuable sender

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

and the fitna that happened in the time of mismatch

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

Have a tally

00:10:02--> 00:10:03

of the Aloha coma.

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

This was one of the Tempest.

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

They started saying things

00:10:11--> 00:10:13

and confusing people.

00:10:14--> 00:10:20

And these are the best people in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala that were chosen, as we know.

00:10:22--> 00:10:32

In fact, it was then that this term was coined. When I mean have you thought they were only Allah Antos, the Hermitage when they said it

00:10:35--> 00:10:38

and forgot this for Allah judgments is for Allah.

00:10:40--> 00:10:43

So he said the Kenyan mental health worried that we have

00:10:45--> 00:10:50

this is a word of truth indeed. But it was set for the purpose of

00:10:52--> 00:10:55

password length and we should have covered about

00:10:57--> 00:11:01

last pantalla is warning. The Rabbi's,

00:11:02--> 00:11:07

the Jews, but it is a warning to any person of religion

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

when attendees would have been badly

00:11:12--> 00:11:14

what back to my chuck.

00:11:15--> 00:11:30

Do not confuse two through five. Of course, this was the case as I said that kept on happening in history by all of the misguided sects in Islam and they are so many it was a version of Latin whistle Capcom.

00:11:31--> 00:11:35

With without too much help, that allows professors and new conceal

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

and you conceal the truth.

00:11:39--> 00:11:42

We know that they concealed

00:11:43--> 00:11:47

truths that they had in their Torah, because of their whims.

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

They conceal some of the legislation

00:11:52--> 00:12:03

they can see and of course, the matter of the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam they knew what full when they were waiting for it.

00:12:05--> 00:12:10

And in fact, this is how the Islam of underlying Salah happened

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

on the lovin Salah was waiting.

00:12:14--> 00:12:21

And he was busy with some palm trees or something when he came to hear

00:12:22--> 00:12:26

the prophet has come. He's arrived in readiness

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

center. So he didn't take me

00:12:33--> 00:12:37

and he wanted to run out to meet him. Yeah. And

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

his mother said

00:12:41--> 00:12:50

we Allah disappoint you. Why? He said, There's Musa Netcom himself, you will not have been this happy.

00:12:52--> 00:13:17

So he said to his mother, this is the prophet we've been waiting for. He said this is his brother, the brother of Musa with Allah. This is the person that we are waiting for. She said really? Is he the one he says yes. So the one said I went to the condo setup and accepted Islam in the famous story. And his mother eventually accepted Islam as well. They were waiting for him

00:13:20--> 00:13:33

that's why I had to live in that house when he was asked about the description of the Prophet SAW said looking at the Rock he said yes, we'll rock is described in the Torah as he was described in the Quran. As a loss of said

00:13:34--> 00:13:37

in our signature he wish you on when I realized

00:13:38--> 00:13:58

that indeed we have set you as a witness and a giver a glad tidings and a warrior. This was in the Torah as well. That it continues, the narration continues. That our last panelist either says that I have made you as a guardian of the meaning or guardian of

00:13:59--> 00:14:03

the mother does not read or write the Arabs

00:14:04--> 00:14:13

were headsman they only hear somebody to come with our kin I then do with our kin, the one who

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

puts their trust in Allah subhanaw taala and then eventually mentions as well with Allah subhanaw taala with that

00:14:24--> 00:14:29

he does not repay evil with evil, but rather He pardons and forgives. This isn't the tongue.

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

They know it and they saw it

00:14:34--> 00:14:51

and that was kind of a toddler will make straight. Many of the crooked ones that the Taha surgeon will give him La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah and fluid he will open, the eyes of the blind

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

and the ears of the deaf and the hearts of those whose hearts been enveloped with fraud

00:15:01--> 00:15:26

This is in the Torah, as Abdullah says, is descriptions there. This is one example of a narration and we have as well, we know that there are other verses that we can pick out in the Old Testament. And in the New Testament that mentioned, the Prophet SAW THE lives in what tune how can you consider the truth?

00:15:28--> 00:15:34

Waiting for him, they expected him. Similarly, in another story

00:15:35--> 00:15:38

that Hamlet has had relayed, relates,

00:15:39--> 00:15:44

hooligan, the father of Sofia, Mini, only Allah.

00:15:45--> 00:15:49

He went, and he met the Prophet also them and they came back

00:15:50--> 00:15:54

with a face different facial expression different than the one he went with.

00:15:56--> 00:16:00

And Sofia was welcoming them and but they were not happy.

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

They should be happy. He's the one you were waiting for.

00:16:07--> 00:16:11

But they were not. Because they didn't know what to do.

00:16:12--> 00:16:17

So they started talking to each other. Is it really him? He said, This robot is.

00:16:19--> 00:16:23

So what are you going to do? We're going to meet his enemy as long as we live.

00:16:25--> 00:16:30

This is the these are the Jews. This is what they did with the Prophet SAW Allah Allah Himself.

00:16:31--> 00:16:41

If they want to talk about anti semitism, correct us that this happened? Did you do this in the process? Or not?

00:16:42--> 00:16:49

Do you continue to disbelief? Do you continue to conceal the number of the prophets Allah Allah it was

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

because of an arrogance in your heart.

00:16:53--> 00:16:57

What tact to help you conceal the truth. Similarly,

00:16:59--> 00:17:01

in a famous authentic

00:17:03--> 00:17:04


00:17:06--> 00:17:12

There was a man and woman that they were punishing because of Zina, the Jews were punishing them.

00:17:13--> 00:17:14


00:17:15--> 00:17:23

they came to the path of Salah they had been punished, they said, they were being punished by whipping.

00:17:24--> 00:17:26

And by exposing them.

00:17:27--> 00:17:31

Nether narration mentions that their faces were black. And

00:17:33--> 00:17:45

so the Prophet said, Is this what you find in your book? Is this the punishment in the Torah for the one who commits adultery? said yes. So they got the torah.

00:17:46--> 00:17:48

And Abdullah Salah was there.

00:17:49--> 00:17:50

They bought the Torah.

00:17:52--> 00:18:00

And he read the verses before and after, and he had his finger on

00:18:01--> 00:18:07

what the verse that the Prophet said there was asking about the verse that mentioned Stoney

00:18:10--> 00:18:17

saw the London setups and remove your finger. And there was the idea that mentioned stoning.

00:18:19--> 00:18:25

But that was not something they wanted to do. So they just canceled the bill removed it.

00:18:26--> 00:18:29

And they hit it with actual hack.

00:18:33--> 00:18:50

So they concealed things, they conceal other legislation as well. Why? Because it did not go along with their wins, and maybe the whims of the rabbis, and maybe the whims of their most influential.

00:18:52--> 00:18:57

Other narration mentions that this was happening amongst the most influential

00:18:59--> 00:19:03

they have to do something about it, they couldn't stop them. So they changed it.

00:19:05--> 00:19:06

To what have

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

they considered the truth this way? Because religion was no longer

00:19:14--> 00:19:15

something for Allah.

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

They it was empty habits,

00:19:23--> 00:19:24


00:19:26--> 00:19:42

rituals, it was no longer something that they were doing out of obedience to Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's why you find that these verses are lost from the other is fixing and rectifying these deep

00:19:43--> 00:19:46

diseases that they had.

00:19:48--> 00:19:54

With Dr. will help cover today Thailand and we know very well. What Allah subhanaw taala is turning

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

to Allah is commanding you and forbidding him from

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


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

Okay we'll select our to kurta workflow.

00:20:05--> 00:20:13

And then he says an established prayer and build the circuit and bow with those who power cable solo and

00:20:15--> 00:20:23

of course, now Allah subhanaw taala is transitioning from fixing issues with their email,

00:20:25--> 00:20:37

their creed, right, their beliefs that was all beliefs, it will be mindset without disturbing it. Whether this will have come about they will at the doctor will help.

00:20:38--> 00:20:47

Now he's transitioned into commands of certain actions, certain acts of Islam, which are established the prayer,

00:20:48--> 00:21:04

establish the prayer here, meaning with the prophets of Allah they will not do the prayer on your own. This is a call to enter to follow the prophets of the Lord Zilla that you have written in your books.

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

establish the prayer

00:21:08--> 00:21:12

along with him and along with the believers. He was

00:21:13--> 00:21:22

one or two seconds and give these accounts. And we know Subhanallah that the foundations

00:21:23--> 00:21:33

of worship are the same. In all of the different charity as we call them, Sharia is right because the religion of Allah azza wa jal is one.

00:21:34--> 00:21:37

The deen of Allah subhanaw taala is an Islam

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

submission to Allah azza wa jal.

00:21:41--> 00:22:08

This is what all of the prophets taught. But now, in these differentially ours, they also have summer, they also have Zika they also have fasting Hardinge it's the same brothers and sisters. So the differences between the sugars are minor differences. But the fundamentals of worship are there.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

He will slow zecca

00:22:14--> 00:22:19

and we find SubhanAllah. Throughout the Quran, Allah azza wa jal combines these two

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

because of their importance, Salah

00:22:24--> 00:22:30

being the most important Muslim duty,

00:22:31--> 00:22:39

the most important and most frequently done Muslim duty is the saya.

00:22:42--> 00:22:46

The connection with Allah subhanaw taala. And ultimately,

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

the purification of the heart

00:22:52--> 00:22:57

welcomes notice what appeals stablish it's

00:22:58--> 00:23:13

not just pray it, establish it. In other words, do it in the best way, establishing perform it as a Lost Planet, Allah commanded people Salah will arrive to Zika

00:23:14--> 00:23:27

that two second, also purification. So Ron is a purification as we know, and zecca by definition, the word Zeca one of the meanings is purification.

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

Well after a second,

00:23:30--> 00:23:31

well, I have to say,

00:23:33--> 00:23:43

here is also a purification of what often the heart of the person performing the Sacra and a purification of the wealthy as well.

00:23:45--> 00:23:51

So you have purification of the heart, you have purification of the wealth,

00:23:53--> 00:23:59

you have salah, which is the ultimate when it comes to the acts of worship that we do.

00:24:01--> 00:24:11

And then you have acts of worship that are financial acts of worship, that is on top of the list as well. A king was allowed to sack up

00:24:12--> 00:24:15

and this is why Subhan Allah,

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

Allah Allah Allah immediately realized these two cannot be separated these are like twins, identical twins who are people Salah to second

00:24:27--> 00:24:29

so last point is telling them now

00:24:32--> 00:24:34

when the cow rocky

00:24:37--> 00:24:51

welcome about Rocky and bow with those who bow. It's quite interesting that if you see the Jews today, they rarely ever bow or kneel.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

Their Salah is different. There's a lot of bobbing up and down

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

There's no real bowing and sujood except possibly very rarely

00:25:07--> 00:25:09

will come out rock heavy

00:25:10--> 00:25:24

and allow those who now enable a totally finds that this means general submission, workable, not recovering, and not a specific command to record.

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

That rather, it is a command to Hulu, submission to Allah spare time. In other words, be with those who submit, submit with the submitters

00:25:39--> 00:25:40

the Muslims,

00:25:42--> 00:25:55

all of these are called to be now with the Muslims that have accepted the Prophet SAW Selim, you should have accepted it before that because you knew that we were waiting already.

00:25:56--> 00:26:06

Well, people slip out after Xikar while recovering from the hard rock me submit with those who submit and one of the best actions of those who submit

00:26:07--> 00:26:10

is valid to Allah subhanaw taala in prayer

00:26:11--> 00:26:12


00:26:15--> 00:26:16


00:26:18--> 00:26:20

many scholars

00:26:22--> 00:26:35

see in that verse, evidence to support the importance and indeed the obligation according to the opinion of Serato DJ now, what we can do right

00:26:36--> 00:26:52

now with those who are battling in other words, this is a call to congregational prayer. So let's work out rock and roll Allah Allah it seems that it is more precise and accurate to say that it is

00:26:54--> 00:27:00

something you can mention as support, but it is not a very clear

00:27:01--> 00:27:01


00:27:03--> 00:27:15

to support the opinion then sought after Jehovah is an obligation that you have to pray when it can be mentioned as one of the areas that

00:27:16--> 00:27:22

lends credence to it though if not it is not one of the main

00:27:23--> 00:27:25

supporting evidence for it.

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

What cow rock carrying and notice what a cow now rocking yes a call to congregational Salah and worship and also a call to be with the believers

00:27:42--> 00:27:47

you didn't say well cool new minute Mercury he said what a couple now

00:27:49--> 00:27:53

bow along with those who are being with those who bow

00:27:54--> 00:28:00

the importance of Janelle And Islam we see this in many different eyes.

00:28:02--> 00:28:03


00:28:04--> 00:28:08

religion brothers and sisters is a religion of

00:28:09--> 00:28:22

of togetherness of the congregation GEMA to mostly be there's no such thing as each Muslim being an idol upon his home. No.

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

We are to be one everything we do Subhanallah we do together

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

Salah itself when modern Muslim see this they are in shock they are at least there is nothing like it in the whole world.

00:28:40--> 00:28:43

That shows such unity even outside of hedge destiny.

00:28:44--> 00:28:51

When you see 1000s upon 1000s of people all critically moving in unison It's remarkable

00:28:53--> 00:28:56

yet Subhanallah there's so much disunity there

00:28:59--> 00:29:02

but this is a religion of unity

00:29:03--> 00:29:06

of Being with the Muslims workout

00:29:09--> 00:29:11

workout with Na rockin

00:29:13--> 00:29:14

when he says

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

I tend to move on unless we

00:29:20--> 00:29:23

return some of that to certain way

00:29:25--> 00:29:26


00:29:30--> 00:29:35

further evidence it's religion have just become

00:29:37--> 00:29:43

we have rituals that will not necessarily admit it to you command others

00:29:44--> 00:29:52

with good to do righteous with deeds and BIM means everything good.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

It is a term that includes everything good that you can do to please

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

last panel.

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

But how

00:30:03--> 00:30:09

do you combat others the people with beef and you forget yourselves

00:30:13--> 00:30:20

and you forget yourselves lunch of the tuna kitab. Can you recite the book, the book here beings that won't walk in the door,

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

want to do like a fella talk to you?

00:30:26--> 00:30:28

So what exactly that they used to do.

00:30:30--> 00:30:35

That was commanded others but not themselves? Well, as we said,

00:30:36--> 00:30:57

religion was mere rituals, a lot of them, a lot of their rabbis and their priests and their men of learning. Were really not that religious at all. Maybe they had some knowledge of the D. And they were able to answer questions, but they themselves are not practicing.

00:30:59--> 00:31:02

Furthermore, religion has become more like a profession.

00:31:04--> 00:31:09

And subhanAllah Singh says, this is the ultimate evil.

00:31:11--> 00:31:13

When the people of religion

00:31:14--> 00:31:17

start taking religion as a profession.

00:31:18--> 00:31:26

It's no longer a true and sincere, genuine rip that in their heart,

00:31:27--> 00:31:39

something that they believe in. It's just rituals, things they say and do, which they themselves it seems do not believe it or do not practice. So Allah azza wa jal, just as

00:31:40--> 00:31:47

especially those people have learned, that moon and NASA been built with 10 Solar Prusa What about you?

00:31:49--> 00:31:54

And we have seen Subhanallah in our own times,

00:31:55--> 00:32:11

stories that will make people's hair gray of the quote unquote, people of religion and learning and understanding the kinds of things that they did. And yet they are telling everyone else joining good and forbidding evil

00:32:13--> 00:32:20

within cylinder for second, some of the tablet even for severe determinate understood from this.

00:32:22--> 00:32:33

Again, the issue of Muhammad Sallallahu, Salah, Africa concealing yet how, because this also is another example,

00:32:34--> 00:32:41

and manifestation of confusing truth and falsehood. So they said to people,

00:32:43--> 00:32:44

you follow him.

00:32:46--> 00:32:50

He's a prophet, but he wasn't sent to us he was sent to you.

00:32:52--> 00:32:59

He was sent to the Arabs follow him and tell him we're gonna message him within some time, for example.

00:33:03--> 00:33:05

This is a possibility.

00:33:07--> 00:33:16

They confirmed they confuse truth and falsehood. They said he or she is a prophet, but not to us. This is where it can be so happy about

00:33:18--> 00:33:21

another commending others but they're forgetting about themselves.

00:33:23--> 00:33:24

The type of woman messing him up

00:33:26--> 00:33:29

selling them to cell phone while I'm doing that lunar kitab.

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

This tiger

00:33:36--> 00:33:39

is one of those scary verses

00:33:41--> 00:33:44

because it has to do with enjoining good and forbidding evil.

00:33:46--> 00:33:56

But it is also mentioning the importance of one implementing that which they teach, practice what you preach.

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

And for that,

00:34:02--> 00:34:04

suddenly understand from it,

00:34:05--> 00:34:09

that you can only enjoin good and forbid evil.

00:34:11--> 00:34:17

If you practice that which you are avoiding or you avoid that which you are forbidding

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

This is why

00:34:25--> 00:34:30

in one narration mentioned by Evan by the way and may help the others

00:34:33--> 00:34:35

a man came to him in our bus

00:34:36--> 00:34:37

of the Lord.

00:34:38--> 00:34:44

And He said to him, I want to enjoin good and forbid evil.

00:34:45--> 00:34:47

He said have you

00:34:48--> 00:34:49

reached that point?

00:34:51--> 00:34:56

The point where you can now do it good and for medieval. He said I believe so.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

He said bye

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

There are three

00:35:02--> 00:35:06

things, three phrases words

00:35:07--> 00:35:12

in the Book of Allah that may expose you. Are you ready for that?

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

He said, What are they?

00:35:16--> 00:35:19

So he mentioned to him. The first one is a dumb rule

00:35:21--> 00:35:22

within sonar.

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

You said

00:35:29--> 00:35:30

have you done this?

00:35:32--> 00:35:36

We said no. In other words, have you fulfilled this? Said?

00:35:37--> 00:35:39

Yes said what's the second one? He said,

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

Yeah, you're Latina, Mr. Lieber? Taku Luna Ma, if

00:35:47--> 00:35:54

you believe, why do you say that? But you do not do? You said have you fulfilled this? said no.

00:35:56--> 00:35:57

So what's the third one?

00:35:58--> 00:35:59

Except the

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

saying of the price sort of a launch right. And he said that he said, when I read

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


00:36:10--> 00:36:12

into into the slides

00:36:14--> 00:36:16

did not want to

00:36:17--> 00:36:20

do that which I forbid you to do.

00:36:24--> 00:36:26

I only desire a slot for

00:36:28--> 00:36:33

you said have you fulfilled this? He said no. He said that start with yourself.

00:36:34--> 00:36:41

In other words, begin reforming yourself before you do the other things, very scary.

00:36:52--> 00:37:00

And there are many such narrations that will find authentic narrations of the prophets on the lower limbs and that warn of this thing.

00:37:02--> 00:37:05

We find that the prophets of Allah Allah wa salam

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

mentioned to us

00:37:11--> 00:37:16

that during his journey, that he saw people in hellfire

00:37:18--> 00:37:24

and their lips were being cut my scissors a fire and he asked Julian, what are the things

00:37:25--> 00:37:30

he said to him? These are the health of your own money. The

00:37:33--> 00:37:39

people who give servants, the puppets, people who teach others

00:37:41--> 00:37:46

who do not follow what they enjoy the people to do.

00:37:47--> 00:37:52

It's not fulfilled that which they are telling others to do. There is clarity.

00:37:54--> 00:37:55

In another narration

00:37:58--> 00:38:00

the further Busan Zaid.

00:38:01--> 00:38:04

You was telling them that he heard the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam say

00:38:06--> 00:38:07

that there will be a man in hellfire.

00:38:09--> 00:38:19

His belly is open and his intestines are coming out. And he is going around himself like a donkey around the millstone.

00:38:22--> 00:38:40

So the people of hellfire will come to him and say, what's going on, didn't tell us didn't join us, enjoy good upon us and forbade us from doing evil. He said this student joined me to do good, I wouldn't do it. And I forbidden from evils at night used to commit it

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

very scary,

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

very scary.

00:38:57--> 00:39:02

For this reason, yes, some scholars have said if you have not done

00:39:03--> 00:39:05

if you have not fulfilled yourself first, but

00:39:07--> 00:39:10

how can you enjoy them for meeting and forbid evil?

00:39:13--> 00:39:18

And there is no doubt that the IRA is showing us the egregiousness

00:39:20--> 00:39:26

of doing such of not practicing what you preach and how bad it is. Okay.

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

On the other hand,

00:39:30--> 00:39:32

scholars did comment

00:39:34--> 00:39:37

and didn't talk about this issue, because it's very important.

00:39:40--> 00:39:41

And this is why they said

00:39:42--> 00:39:45

that if we go back to interesting say of citing

00:39:47--> 00:39:48

and others

00:39:50--> 00:39:52

say them ZWave said,

00:39:53--> 00:39:54


00:39:56--> 00:39:59

no one enjoying good or forbidding evil

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

until they had no wrongdoing,

00:40:05--> 00:40:08

then there would be no one who would enjoy

00:40:11--> 00:40:13

very interesting sleep.

00:40:15--> 00:40:26

So he's trying to say, yes, you have to practice what you preach. But if it happens that you do not, you should not neglect

00:40:31--> 00:40:38

if we're going to wait for everyone to be perfect, what will happen? There will be no enjoy good.

00:40:41--> 00:40:51

This is why scholars sent and empathy confirms this. He says this is the correct opinion of scholars

00:40:52--> 00:41:03

of ancient and the more other ones as well, that the correct opinion is that they are two separate and independent obligations.

00:41:06--> 00:41:09

One, doing the righteous good deed

00:41:10--> 00:41:11


00:41:12--> 00:41:13

that simple

00:41:14--> 00:41:15

that is

00:41:16--> 00:41:29

one type of deed, one type of obligation, then there is another independent obligation and that is to enjoin good and forbid evil. So, even if,

00:41:31--> 00:41:36

God forbid, your law protects us all, if we are committing a certain sin.

00:41:38--> 00:41:40

And then we see someone committing that sin.

00:41:42--> 00:41:44

Do we forbid it?

00:41:45--> 00:41:46


00:41:48--> 00:41:50

Forbid ourselves as well.

00:41:53--> 00:41:55

I'm not praying the way I should

00:41:57--> 00:41:57

I see someone

00:41:59--> 00:42:10

not doing their prayers properly, or not praying with my prayers. Should I tell them? Should I enjoy God? Absolutely. You must. It's another obligation.

00:42:12--> 00:42:19

But I'm not practicing. Well start practicing. But that is a different obligation.

00:42:20--> 00:42:40

And if you say to yourself, no, I'm going to fix myself first and then enjoying good, guess what you have abandoned that other obligation. So you have not fulfilled the first obligation which is the prayer itself. And you have not fulfilled the other obligation, which is enjoying people to pray.

00:42:42--> 00:42:47

separate, independent obligation. Okay.

00:42:50--> 00:42:55

enjoin, good, and forbid evil, and do your best to do the same?

00:42:58--> 00:43:03

It's a very, it's a sensitive issue. Absolutely. And

00:43:05--> 00:43:13

though, we have those narrations that are very scary, but at the same time, we need to enjoin good and we need to commit

00:43:14--> 00:43:18

when it vitiates, your other

00:43:20--> 00:43:22

if you are known,

00:43:23--> 00:43:28

to be not performing man, what you preach? Absolutely.

00:43:29--> 00:43:40

So if you're a drunkard, and you're telling people don't drink, yeah, it's definitely a problem if you do it publicly. But if you do it privately, and no one knows that, you know, it's wrong.

00:43:41--> 00:43:42

For others,

00:43:44--> 00:43:45

there is no problem.

00:43:46--> 00:43:48

And it does not allow an island contradict this.

00:43:50--> 00:43:56

This is what's called a setting attack mode unless you are telling someone for second

00:43:57--> 00:44:08

tap, and you recite the book and you know, the book, again, is speaking to those learners. They're the ones who know the book, they know and most well,

00:44:09--> 00:44:20

they see the verses and they're doing the opposite attempt to do their Kitab fn attack to you. And then after that, we can apply it to ourselves as well.

00:44:21--> 00:44:22

And we

00:44:24--> 00:44:27

unfortunately, when we look at

00:44:28--> 00:44:30

that string of verses,

00:44:31--> 00:44:34

and what the last point Allah is trying to rectify

00:44:36--> 00:44:37

in the Druze

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

a lot of it we see sometimes in ourselves is

00:44:43--> 00:44:49

because we are far away from our religion. It's a reminder to us as well.

00:44:51--> 00:44:58

Hasn't religion become 12 to a great many people Muslims has not become just me rituals.

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


00:45:02--> 00:45:09

things that they do, where there is no real belief or have no real understanding. Don't we see that? We see that quite a bit.

00:45:11--> 00:45:13

If that happens, then

00:45:15--> 00:45:19

we are similar to the Jews who Allah subhanaw taala is representing you.

00:45:20--> 00:45:43

This is not the way religion should be. Religion should be something sincere, coming from a sincere heart that pervades our consciousness and our way of life. Not merely things that we say that we do not understand, or things that we do, completely mechanically.

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

belong to Allah Allah. So Allah

00:45:48--> 00:45:48


00:45:50--> 00:45:51

what is wrong
