President due to Allah Almighty and I send prayers and blessings upon the final prophet and the Beloved of Allah azza wa jal Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Glory be to You Allah no knowledge have we accept that what you have taught us Indeed you are the unknowing. And the old wise, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this gathering in sha Allah, in the scale of our good deeds on the day of judgment, and I asked Allah subhanaw taala as he brought us here together today, in this lesson House of Allah to bring us together in sha Allah and the highest a paradise with the Beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu and the companions and the noble family, profitable Hamlet
and all those that follow them with the right guidance Insha Allah, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts and our brains to the Noble Quran and make it an argument for us and not against us on the Day of Judgment. My dear brothers and sisters, I apologize for
not being available last time, but
there was a funeral. Rather, we knew we lost planet Allah have mercy on him. And this is a an obligation from a Muslim towards another Muslim.
You attend your brother or sister's funeral, of course.
In the case of the ladies, usually, it's not recommended that they go to the funeral. But it is definitely an obligation to do what is called the condolence. Okay.
So I apologize for that. But we continue in Sharla. Today,
from the last day that we left off with, and the verses that we were speaking about, are many verses, it's a Medini chapter, and it's speaking.
Last, we left off with the Najwa, the concept of the network, which was the private conversation, usually happening between the Crowfall or even between the when after pin, which they used to do for several reasons they used to plot.
Some of them were plotting against the Muslims, sometimes it was done merely to irritate the Muslims and to give them the impression that they're speaking about them, and they might harm them and so on. And therefore,
they were forbidden to engage in such private conversation and so on. And Allah subhanaw taala let
them after a loss, the previous verses, shown them and told them
that he is the one who knows everything, and that his knowledge compasses all, and that there is no
private conversation between three except that he is the fourth, and so on. And he continued with us. Let me give him a practical example of his knowledge, and his seeing and hearing of this private conversation between them and there's a sin in some narration, that means to say to each other, do you think that Allah azza wa jal knows what we're seeing now. And some of them would say something ludicrous, such as he knows some, but he doesn't know the other or he hears somebody doesn't hear the rest. And then the last part of the highlight, expose them in the next day where he tells them that
as they used to say to each other, and this was part of their lives, they used to say to each other, how come Allah azza wa jal does not punish us with what we say. And that
could have been a reference to the fact that they used to insult the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in a hidden manner, showing that they were actually saying salaam to him, but they were actually wishing death upon him. And then he exposed them. And yet they didn't believe. No, this was a practical example of Allah subhanaw taala witnessing their private conversation and hearing everything they said and they said well
Nobody has given a lovely man, that how come Allah azza wa jal does not punish us with what we say? He heard what you said? Did you tell Allah subhanaw? taala? Did you tell the Prophet did you say
overtly in front of the believers? No, towards between themselves, and Allah expose them. That was the place for them to believe, if indeed they had intended to believe, then Allah subhanaw taala continues, we will be the concept of the medulla. But now, he goes on, he speaks to the believers, the addresses to the believers, Allah says about the ultimate level
Show? Will you have believed when you converse privately, do not converse about sin and aggression, and this obedience to the messenger, but converse about righteousness and piety and fear Allah to whom you will be gathered.
Ostensibly, this addresses to the believers, yeah, you have nothing in common. However, there's an opinion also that it is a speech to the hypocrites.
And how would he be addressing them as believers possibly addressing them with that which they displayed, which is Eman? So if you ever Christian, these are believers, he is calling upon them do not converse privately between each other
with regard sin and aggression and disobedience to the messenger, and if there's merit to that opinion, it is because Allah, the believers should not be told not to converse about their intention to disobey Allah to Allah and His Messenger, or that they should not privately converse about
sin and aggression and so on. However, the popular opinion this is an address to the believers, and it is to forbid them to be like the hypocrites and to be like the disbelievers do not be like and Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, Whoever in the face of people is often, in other words, the movement, the believer, the Muslim is supposed to be distinguished, okay, firstly, in the crease in their beliefs, and they are, of course, to be distinguished in their belief, to be distinguished in their manners to be distinguished in their dress and their appearance. A Muslim is always to be distinguished. Okay. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu forbade the Muslims imitate the Jews and
the Christians. And we know that one of our major problems is that Muslims now imitate everyone, but truth. And this is why Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said in the beautiful Hadith, which we see in front of our eyes today, as living with us today, when he said, in deeds, you will follow the footsteps of those before you
so closely, okay, almost like an arm's length for an arm's length,
until they enter wherever they enter the lizards hole. And you will do what you will follow them into the visitor tools. And it is my humble claim that they have already turned around, and are leaving the hole. And we are still left in the hole, because we imitated them in everything. And this is the unfortunately the sad reality of the one who is occupied, occupied by occupied I mean that we have lost our personality. And we are occupied, whether it is militarily and more importantly, we are occupied in our brains and our hearts, because we love everything but Islam, and therefore we follow them even into the lizard. And this is purely excuse me stupid. If someone
enters religious will you won't even as much as you love them. But this is the situation.
And this is why eventually the the end of the hadith of Hamas and who are the whole Messenger of Allah, about whom you speak, the Jews and the Christians? He said, Then who else? Who else is it gonna be other than that? In other words, in general, we're talking about the disbelievers. This is the sad reality that we live today. No.
As we run towards them, they're running towards us. So many of the non Muslims who came back to Islam, they are exonerating themselves of everything that they used to practice or that they used to have even they don't
Up to, technically they don't want to change the last name, they want to change. They want a Muslim name. They don't need to necessarily change. As long as it is, there's nothing. They want to change. They're just they want to leave everything. And they are coming running towards Islam. And I'm the opposite. We are running towards them, and their culture and their ideas and things like that, even though everything good is in Islam in what Allah subhanaw taala has given us all US power to Allah says, Do not converse about sin and aggression and disobedience to the Messenger of Allah on the line. In other words, do not be like those who did sue, who come and privately converse about sin
and aggression and disobedience to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is not how can a believer see sin in aggression is something okay? But the other one is disobedience to the Messenger of Allah, how can a true believer or a group of true believers come together and follow a plan to disobey the messenger of allah sallallahu sin, this cannot be my dear brothers and sisters, if anything, this this may be only amongst the hypocrites who claim they were believers, but they are not. Otherwise a true believer does not do this. And plan and plot and organize to disobey the Messenger of Allah salah or do something that represents disobedience to the messenger
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with a naturally busy what's wrong? He gives you an alternative Subhan Allah, Allah azza wa jal always prohibits, and then gives the alternative, what's the alternative?
converse about righteousness, and piety.
This shows you that Najwa private conversation in its generality is not prohibited. It's only prohibited when it is about that which is prohibited sin and aggression and disobedience. But when it is about something good, no,
it is permissible. And it's may indeed be recommended in some situations, if silence about that issue
is something wise. And that's why many people they say the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that
use silence or benefit from Silence is finishing your matters, even though there's weakness in the Hadith, but the meaning is sound. And there is wisdom in it. And that is that you don't need to always spread news about everything in your life, especially if there's something specific that you're trying to accomplish, sometimes it's wise to do it quietly.
In the situation, in some of the situations that that concerned, okay, some of the greater political issues, and things that maybe it's not good for everyone to have their nose in or to have their word about. In that situation, it's wisdom, to not speak about it overtly, and leave the issue to those affected to those of understanding to those of wisdom to those who are able to deal with such issues. Allah subhanaw taala speaks about this and saw it in this way, the dark, and the old Kofi
what I want to do, who
hollymount lentinus mean, that when some issue of
security or fear comes about, immediately, they start spreading it and they spread the news? No, this is not always
but it may be prudent to come together to plan for something good before saying it to everyone else. And there are reasons for that number one,
if you do come together, to plan for something good, maybe some some charity work, or maybe something that you are doing in order to lift the the status of the board to show your your reverence, and your support to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam during these difficult times, and so on.
This may be done in secret, many ideas, once they're presented to others who don't believe they'll immediately shut it down. And so people are just like not by nature, they're negative. You offer them any proposal, and they'll immediately shut it down for you and that's it, this this won't work and so on. And so every time we're going to listen to that you won't achieve or accomplish anything. Okay, and many of the most successful companies and most successful organizations
Send campaigns are results of ideas of people who were sincere inshallah wanted to accomplish something.
When you do this, and your intention is to live,
the status of Muslims, Allah subhanaw taala will help you. And we need this very much, especially in our days, brothers and sisters. And we know the example from the sea, of
who, following the or during the Battle of law, he didn't just become Muslim, and he didn't wait to support Islam or Muslims. He didn't wait to go home and to study and to open the books and to go into the details of Islam. Immediately after he became Muslim. He asked the messenger of allah sallallahu What can I do to support you? What can I do to support the Muslims, it shows you that Islam is not always just what you read in the books, but it's something in the heart, it's a it's a propensity, it's a love to support Islam. That's a lot to be with. Immediately, he translated his Islam to support for the
in jihad, and he
just one person
as much as you can, and he went, and he planned the intricate plot, he used his work for all practical purposes, because he had was okay, he had relations. He knew people from the Jews, and he knew people from the wishes
who came together to plot against the Muslims to defeat them in this has won this battle of Lhasa. They came together.
So he went and he spoke to the Jews.
And he told them that this wish to kill the pagans that you have allied yourself with they
they already betrayed you, and they're not gonna support you in your fight against them Hanlon.
And they trusted him. And then he went, and he told the pagans the same thing about the Jews, they betrayed you look at this, look at the the the planning, okay, for
Islam and Muslims for the good of the religious, which she just
it was one of the things that
helped them in that battle. So in that case, yes, come together and plan for it and plan for this religion that you love and you
adhere to what
fear Allah, to whom you will be gathered, a reminder that when you come together with this interviewer and you have these private conversations, they were Allah subhanaw taala is a witness over what you do, and he hears what you say. Therefore, it is a reminder, the where you will stand before our last panel to Allah you will be resurrected to Him, you will be asked about this Metro, you will be asked about everything that you do.
And that includes what you have come together
to plan for
what have you bought or?
By this conversation is only from Satan, that he may agree those who have believed, but he will not harm them at all, except by permission of Allah and upon Allah let the believers rely on
is the one
that beautified private conversation,
in disobedience to Allah, to the hypocrites and to the disbelievers.
It is one of the important tools of Satan
to beautify everything ugly
that you see in your life. And we live nowadays, everything is opposite now. Everything that used to be good is bad. Wearing too many clothes is bad. Wearing much less is good, as we see belief in Allah. worship of Allah is evil, but worship of your own desires, and doing everything that your heart is content with. is beautiful.
looking great, everything is offered. This is all the beautification of a shave pawn. And Satan here brothers and sisters
is not alone. He has his supporters oxygen, and he has the supporters of humanity.
And humanity itself is beautifying everything. If you look at homosexuality,
freedom of sexuality. What is it to you, if someone wants to practice in the way they want, heterosexual or homosexual, look at the difference. The only difference is hetero or homeless.
Others tell you others use the word gay,
these happy the meaning of gay is to be happy. And don't laugh at these things. No, it's a small linguistic trick.
It has an effect on people. For people who used to use the word gay immediately.
They have happy emotions, when maybe they talk about sexuals. But if you come and use a word such as homosexual, or sodomites,
like the the the Bible says,
Follow my immediate immediately. If it hasn't, it gives you a negative effect. But otherwise, no, it's almost like it's something interesting. It's a change. It's a variation Subhan Allah,
that those are the ones who love the fascia spreads amongst the believers. And indeed, Allah subhanaw taala wants to guide you to that which is good for you. And they want to guide you to that which will harm you. Allah wants you wants to take you to paradise. He wants to give you Paradise, and they want to take you to hellfire. And she wants to take every single human being
to hellfire. This is all of the beautification.
And this is why, you see maybe a few decades ago, homosexuality was something important. It was something disgusting. But now it is not the case.
Before when it was not supposed to be shown in movies, okay. And it was almost it was still something in the closet.
And not only imagine that there is a parade and annual parade
for this disgusting act SubhanAllah.
In defiance of Allah azza wa jal,
this was the
this is what happened in Katrina.
The hurricane of Katrina came two days before the most disgusting homosexual parade that occurs on the world on an annual basis. And then they write on the websites of Hala.
The parade is delayed until next year, because of Katrina.
And it will be the next year at this time. Katrina did not make them understand or believe. And this is why sometimes we think, Oh, if only they see this, and only we show them this, and if only they see the evidence, no Quran the belief, and if only they see, they
believe they did not believe they were audacious enough to say, because of Katrina, we are hoping they think they
met Allah subhanaw taala sending this punishment. They said next year,
next year, we'll continue
to shape on this wireless puntata says Flm kind of another unit in Columbia Canons UI and
that, is the one who follows the guidance from Allah subhanaw taala from their Lord, are they like the ones
who allow the shaper to beautify this for them, and they follow their desires? But why Allah they are not equal. Those two are not equal, my dear brothers and sisters in them and I'm going to show you why. Why shape on beautify these things Leah,
zona, and Naveen in order that he may grieve those who have believed
this is evident from the private conversations that used to happen between them, confer in front of the believers. This used to silence the beliefs. This used to
cast doubt in the hearts of the believers that they might want to hug them or something along those lines immediately then comfort when they say goodbye to him.
That it will not harm them.
anything except with the permission of Allah subhanaw taala In other words, depends on Allah and do not worry.
There's a hadith the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam mentioned that the result of Najwa is in the case of
three, the three people want to have a private conversation between and means, the third one alone, the public will also prohibited this that if you are in a group of three, the two of you should not conduct private conversation and leave the third and this applies to using a separate language.
If you want to
have you know, a language and the third does not, it's not manners to do so. And part of that is also when you are when in a gathering, maybe you are too and there is a non western between don't speak in your own language without them understanding this is not agreement as a movement. So he says
he said I'm prohibited this he said do not do this because it saddens the third one to be left out. Both leaves anybody out especially if it is something good spreads good amongst people.
Leah's gonna let
him say it
no matter what this one does. In the end, without the permission of Allah, he's not capable of anything. And this is why after the Shavon Prime Minister was pelota Allah by Allah I will need all of your slave servants astray.

Without it, nothing would happen. In fact, nothing would exist. If it wasn't for allows the vision as it were wasn't for Allah subhanaw taala
decreeing things in the universe, as we saw in sort of
many of you were there and it feels sort of offline which verse that everything is only by the will of Allah subhanaw taala?
Is my brother but he answered correctly
precisely the sort of man who says
they ask about Allah subhanaw taala and the replies couldn't lay a woman who officiated everyday Allah subhanaw taala is decreeing a matter, giving life to one, decreasing deaths upon another, lifting one person, relegating another giving health to someone testing someone else, with sickness and so on. All of these matters and they're all happening at the same time all around the world in the old universe every single day Allah who was in charge brothers and sisters Allah when they say we love the hem chi and elaborative, nila, do not worry, but take the word meanings.

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam exits his own house while the disbelievers are standing outside, waiting to to chop his neck.
He leaves the house and Allah azza wa jal blinds them. He's in front of their eyes. Other people can see
Allah blind in their eyes. And he takes the dust and he throws it on their heads. And then someone comes afterwards. And he says, What are you doing here and they say we're waiting for Muhammad. He says what he left way back, he left a few way back, he came
on, on your head. And He, Allah azza wa jal is in control. Allah subhanaw taala protected him similarly,
the wife of Abu Lahab,
Melissa, the wife of
when she came,
and she wants to inform the political asylum and harm him. And she comes to
and the elements when she comes to overlook, and she says, whereas if I find that I'm gonna do this, and I'm gonna do that, and so on, and he's sitting right in front of her nose, but she cannot see Him,
Vision is in control. And the worldly means that you and I put everything upon our in the control a philosophy, when he collected the fire, to be cold and peace as he did for
him. This is precisely what happens, this fire, which we say
100%, every time I put my finger on the fire, it's
called Empty peace upon him,
when he sent me a brother in law, this
could refer to the next one, the plodding between them, that it will not harm them, by the will of Allah, or it could refer to the
next one in a shape all right?
meaning the shape will not harm them, except by the will of Allah subhanho wa taala. And this is why Allah
dictate the plotting of Satan is weak. When is it weak?
When you depend on Allah, when Allah is with you, when Allah subhanaw taala protects you and when you seek refuge in Allah, otherwise shaytan is with you every moment, trying to take you away in every single
and he was patient. And His thing was you just stay with you until you
have your stable humanity until the day of his face. He tried many times to stop you from praying, and he wasn't successful. But eventually one day he might.
He has results. When I said to him,
what are the laws of failure?
And upon Allah let the believers realize that the believers depend on the last panel. Do we put all of our faith and our trust in Allah subhanaw taala.
Like the the famous story of that child, who had recently heard a prophet muhammad sallallahu Sallam that whoever prays
the morning prayer in JAMA in congregation in the masjid, that he is in the protection of Allah, and nothing was harmful.
And he told his father to wake him up early for the prayer. And he said, but you're gonna miss school or you're going to be late to school. He said, I have to pray Fudger he knows his obligation. Wake me up. I want to go and pray in the masjid. So he went and he prayed federal in the masjid. Then he went to school, and he had forgotten his assignment. And then the teacher tells him as he's going one by one is asking who made the assignment? And some of them did not pay him or he discipline them or something else. And he came to him and he said, Where's your assignment? He said, I didn't do it, or I forgot. And he said, I'm going to discipline on your what you won't be able to.
And the teacher is a nice, what do you mean, you won't be able said you won't be able. Why? He said I'm in the protection of Allah. Because
in congregations of the phase of this little child, and indeed the teacher, the teacher did not.
Don't tell me because he heard the heartbeat. Or he decided, okay, I'll just manage it. How Why did he do that?
That's the similar thing with the other kids but he left this one because
this doesn't mean don't do this
don't forget to listen to your parents right? Do that. But at the same time, have faith in Allah and trust that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who is in control
the next few verses, brothers and sisters are versus that
presence of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the next few few verses, help us to live our life with Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, all you have believed, when you base yourself in assemblies, then make space, Allah will make space for you.
And when you are called Orion, then arise, Allah will raise those who have believed among you, and those who are given knowledge by degrees. And Allah is acquainted with what you do,
because the next few verses put to us with Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu. So, what are these? What are these gatherings? These are the assemblies of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu
by comparison, all of the assemblies that
specifically when it was revealed, it was speaking about the assemblies where the Companions used to attend the assembly of Prophet Muhammad. Can you imagine sitting in a gathering like this with profitable hardware, the the speakers probably from the from Allah, Allah, what would you do for that? To sit in that assembly? And it's a sense that his assemblies from Allah, Allah
was between his house
and his pulpit. What is called now a robot, the area of robot Okay, where it's highly recommended that one, pray in Medina.
This is where he used to have his gatherings Can you imagine that? Sitting in Medina whenever I mentioned the number one and the speaker is Prophet Muhammad wa salam ala gathering of knowledge, Allah, Allah bring him bring us together with him shall on the Day of Judgment. Yeah, you wonder
what used to occur, who doesn't want to be in this gathering? And of course, nowadays, everyone sits far away so far you are right now. They used to come and be with stick to Prophet Muhammad wa salam, they might even be touching him. And people are all coming around him. Of course.
it is recommended that one do that, even with the scars.
I believe it was
when he died. On his deathbed, he said that three things I will miss from this dunya fasting on holidays, praying in the middle of the night, and sticking knees, to the knees of scholars. In other words, these gatherings where people used to get together nowadays Allah who makes you cry, you see a gathering around this color, you bring one of the biggest colors, okay?
From a certain country, you have 567 people in front of them, maybe 15 If you're if you're lucky. Where are these gatherings these assemblies acknowledged that
they used to have when they speak about colors degrades colors. Of course, partly this was the perfect scholar. But more importantly, it's the fault of us who have given no words to knowledge
that when they speak about the assemblies of Josie, then the famous scholar Evelyn Josie, you talk about 1000s
Maybe 10s of 1000s as some of the narrations mentioned, the imagine those gatherings imagine
how people used to regard knowledge in that time.
So they used to come and they used to get crowded around Prophet Muhammad. And when people come they don't want to. They don't want to make space. Okay. Whenever they see people come, it was
almost like a praiseworthy selfishness, praiseworthy in the sense that it was part of their love of Allah.
They would not make space Allah azza wa jal ordered them to make space
what is the reward if you make space Allah will make space for you. And subhanAllah who made this reward a general reward? He didn't say it's
different scholars have said that this
is in in dunya.
And in paradise
If you didn't want to do it
will you not do it so that Allah, Allah will make space for you will provide for you will give you and provide for you in
the generosity of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. This is a practical application of the fact that when you take one step toward peace, extend steps towards you, you do one
thing for Allah
and He gives you so much and he rewards you so much Subhanallah with Allah, he is a shareholder, the grateful
your Salah hula, Allahu Akbar. And notice that the reward is
related to the deed. The reward is related to the deed. If so, yep,
that's what they say.
Following that, he says, What is appealing sizzle, sizzle. And if it is said to you,
lift yourself in other words get up.
He's appealing sizzle.
He told me to get a few gods, Allah azza wa jal will list your status. So you see, the the reward is related to the category of the deed. And
there's many, many examples of this.
whoever protects or practices
for another Muslim, Allah subhanaw taala will protect him and provide for him on the day of judgment, whoever has a brother or sister, Allah subhanaw taala will help.
And so on and so forth. Whoever builds a house for Allah in this dunya building a mosque, Allah will build
a palace for him in Elgin Subhanallah the reward is related to the deed, but be careful because the opposite is also true.
The punishment is also related to the deeds and we see that in a dunya. And we see that in an ashram, okay.
Such as when Prophet Muhammad salallahu Salam in hellfire when I heard that those who practice fornication and illicit sexual acts are headed by their private parts, may Allah protect us from that. You see, even the punishment is related to the deed.
In the day, it is said Allahu Allah, that when you
treat your parents in a certain way, guess what, your children come out exactly the same. If you disobey your parents, and if you give them a hard time,
you will find that your your children, Allah, Allah will punish you with your children, your children will do the same. So be very careful with your parents. Of course, you should do so merely out of your respect for them and your love for them. But that doesn't dissuade you think about this fact when you like that your children do to you what you are currently doing to your parents
pick them up
the reward and the punishment is usually from the category of the deed
space so that Allah subhanaw taala will make space for you.
this brings us to some of the manners of Magennis of gatherings and sittings that we should mention, number one, that
there should be made space in such a gathering. Here.
You find that Allah subhanaw taala is preparing the hearts of the believers. Before he prepares to physically the space is preparing the hearts to make space. In other words, work space
for your brothers and your sisters.
And then that will enable them to make space physically correct because they didn't want to make space. They didn't want to make space because they were
because they wanted a
nearby location to him some of Allah subhanaw taala is teaching them
To be generous even with that which they love, where you
can be in the practice is where they prefer to benefit their brother or their sister, even at the expense of benefiting.
That's what they love most.
Make space, make space in your heart first. Once there's space in your heart for them, you want your brothers to come, you want your sisters to come, you want them to join this gathering, you want them to benefit from that what you are benefiting from, you want to distribute goods, you would like to spend good among the believers. This is firstly something in the heart, and then you are able to make space for them. Come, please come, sit, come enjoy.
when you're hosting someone, some people just want to have guests and to offer them food or to offer them drink and so on. This is all part of the generosity. This is part of the manners that Allah subhanaw taala is teaching the believers can sacrifice that which is most beloved to them, they can truly sacrifice things, which are less.
So make space to the last panel Tyler will make space for you, then forgive others as you hope and wish that Allah subhanaw taala forgives you
now, in such a situation
in such in gatherings and assemblies, the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam forbade that one go. And as the Hadith, just mentioned by the Sheikh of so let's do that, whoever goes to the prayer early and so on. And part of the, the manner that he mentioned is that we're not separate between two In other words, don't bother people don't step on their bodies, their knees, their heads, to get to the front location in the first location confirm
you want to be close to the image come early, you want the reward of the first one, come early

these are part of the manners of gatherings and assemblies, assemblies brothers and sisters.
That Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam mentioned in the Hadith
that one should not make someone stand up so that they can pick their place. Okay, in general, this is look allows you when someone and you tell them to stand up and then you come and you take their place on what basis okay, this is something that's profitable Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for
which is important in such a situation is to have manners with those who deserve respect.
Such as the scholars, such as those of
their place maybe in the community, the people of knowledge, people that we are supposed to respect and unfortunately this is something that we lack nowadays for them. It is recommended you get up and you give them their place. And there is a narration
Some of the pious predecessors concerning this, and it says that it was a Friday. And it was a gathering. And there was an assembly with Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. And some of the people who entered later on for whatever reason, they might have their excuse are the ones who witnessed the battle.
And the ones who witnessed the Battle of Islam have a special status as Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, because they witnessed the first major battle in Islam, which represented the criteria
that which distinguish between the forces of good and the forces of evil.
So the people has a special status in Islam
and develop that, of course, is mentioned in the Quran.
it's almost as the puppet himself showed respect to the people of metal,
it was difficult for him to see the people, the batteries basically standing up and not being given a seat in front of him. Eventually, he has to ask some people to get up and give their place to the people. And this is something that the puppet did not like to do, because he was shy, he didn't like to ask people to give up on the place to get it should have been the immediate reaction of those sitting, have the respect for the people of knowledge and the people of jihad to give them to stand up a new place. And we see this sometimes, nowadays, for people who have respect for the scholars, they will get up and they will give their place to the scholars
and this is something that
preserves this place for them in the Quran. By sending these eyes, and this is what he says after

might mean several things, as the scholar said, One,
the image this was a gathering over Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam was too shy
to expand people from his household, as in the case of his marriage, where he had the marriage and he had the one EMA and the Sahaba love being there. And they didn't meet the demand just get married. So Allah Allah,
he just got married.
In the first place, the honeymoon life,
the parents hated him,
and he was too shy SallAllahu Sallam to tell them.
So they said, This is the the reason for the revelation of the verses in surah.
This is a similar situation. So if he told you to leave,
in fact, you should have the respect on the politeness to leave before someone tells you to leave. And this applies even between us. And as we visit each other.
their host or their guests. What is good for
centuries, the other meaning is that when the Prophet SAW Selim tells you to get up,
when the Imam
or the Emile, Emile, I'm talking about, maybe you, you, you went out as a group or a gathering or so on. Don't let it bother you if the me or someone tells you to get up. And
one of the reasons a lot of
it is to,
to consult those who are told to get up to say to them, it's okay. It's not
to harm you. It's not to hurt you. It's up to you that the man told you to get up for them to get up for whatever reason, maybe for a scholar or maybe for some other benefit that he sees that you don't see. Because that may have
been in the hearts of those who are told to get up for the bedroom. So he says what is
Fila Lavina Evan Miko, Allah lives, those who believed you, meaning who believed in this obligation and who heeded the advice. Allah.
Don't think that it is too important it's not and never was obedience to Allah and the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, something that relegates people rather it lifts people. And this is why Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, one that allow
modesty towards Allah subhanaw taala only lifts you when you despise yourself
in the sight of Allah azza wa jal Do you think that brings you down, it only brings you up in the sight of Allah, when you lower yourself
in the sight of Allah, in that which is due to Allah, Allah only lifts you, therefore it may be, there may be a person and you don't know about it, because monastery is something in the heart. And they have so much modesty as concerns their relationship with Allah subhanaw taala, because they see that they are absolutely nothing and they humble themselves.
That person, though they might not be known to you, and though they may not be those who are the normals of a community, they may be the highest people in the sight of Allah, when will you know this not in dunya, in a woman
must lift those who are mothers. So if those people got up the Sahaba, who got up to the memory, they're getting up, right? Because the batteries have no
because of their status with Allah illusion. So when you get up for them, it's out of respect for them. And it's out of respect for the religion of Allah. And for the Imam
who's wondering you to get up. When you get up for a scholar
is missing something,
then this it is, there may be someone that you truly see as someone knowledgeable and you respect and you still have that trouble. Being honest with them. Be careful, there may be a problem with your humility towards knowledge. And this is something that we suffer from nowadays, brothers and sisters, humility towards knowledge, it's absence.
We read half a book, we think we're a scholar, we read, we become a Muslim.
Callers may be spent years and years and hours on themselves,
humbling themselves to knowledge, humble yourself to knowledge. Prior, believe me, this is the only way to scholarship. And I see this in dunya. And you want scholarship.
Humble yourself to knowledge. Even
managers in the knowledge of dunya, let's say let's call it the knowledge of dunya the knowledge of natural sciences of management or whatever it may be, as opposed to the knowledge of Sharia, you'll find the truly ambitious ones. And the ones who achieved much are the ones who humble themselves to knowledge. Just because they were a manager. It didn't stop them from saying I don't know. Or asking someone for experience.
Who knows it's all there anyone who knows about Absolutely not. These colors that we refer to was the hardest ones to manage. And Imam Malik himself. It is said when people will travel
to meet him to ask him questions about Islam. Two thirds of his questions. He did not reply. He said I don't know.
What's the reply of someone? If that happens to them today? What kind of scholar Are you?
SubhanAllah? Or what do you know? I came all the way for you. Nowadays it's I came from Jabra.
And you're telling me I don't know Subhanallah
they humble themselves to knowledge. In fact, they used to say the one the scholar whoever says I don't know. Truly this.
In other words, they don't have knowledge. They humbled themselves to knowledge to get to where they are. Therefore don't be afraid to ask questions.
Don't be afraid to ask questions that you may think are stupid or something else. There's no other way to learn. My dear brothers and sisters. But when we humble ourselves to Allah azza wa jal we humble ourselves to that knowledge to Allah will give you of that knowledge. Therefore, it's part of the respect to
For the people that they were told to get up to the best reason this is one of the generations of the seller of why these verses were revealed the law to highlight

raises those who have the least among you. What could this mean? Again, it could be a reference to those who heeded the advice and got up those who believed and therefore applied the command of Prophet Muhammad. It could also be a reference to those who truly believed, because there were people in that government who didn't believe.
And they were the hypocrites. The hypocrites used to also witness together as a prophet, you
know, they are disbelievers in their hearts. Of course, they used to attend the congregation affairs, right? Otherwise, immediately they know these people are not truly very similarly.
Why is this person never attending the gathering of Prophet Muhammad?
There's a question mark on it.
So they used to attend the gatherings of Prophet Muhammad. And it is said that when this happened,
this incident, the hypocrites said, See what happened here, this was unjust, he made some people get up for the others. So Allah subhanaw taala showed otherwise. And he says,
in response to them, I now live in
those who believes of you Allah subhanaw taala, when
and those who are given knowledge, Allah subhanaw taala, and lift them many degrees. And this is the way of Allah with those of knowledge Subhan Allah, Allah, in dunya, and Miss in an area, and this is why Prophet Muhammad Allah
that every creature in the universe seeks forgiveness, for the one of knowledge for the scholar, even the fish in the sea,
even the fish in the sea,
the sea forgiveness for the scholar,
they themselves have respect for the scholar.
it's almost like they know the the, the the value, the people have knowledge of the people of scholarship.
This is one of the verses that is commonly referred to when we're speaking about the status of the people of
those people. And this is why
at the time of Prophet Muhammad
when he saw one of these governors which he designated for the people,
and he saw him, then later on somewhere else.
He said to him, What are you doing here?
What did you leave with the people? He says, I left observe.
He said you left with them. One of the slaves developed was asleep.
He said, Oh, leader of the faithful meaning,
he is a person who knows the Quran. And he is a person who knows the rules of inheritance and so on, obviously a man of faith and knowledge and then say that a lot of unremembered Hadith the Prophet Muhammad, Allah salah, and he said yes, indeed, Allah azza wa jal lists, through this Quran some people and he relegates others, Allah azza wa jal lifted the status of observed with his scholarship and knowledge and his connection and relationship with the Quran. And therefore, he accepted what his governor did. And look at me the the, the understanding of the governor. Now no matter of who you are, a slave or free, rich or poor, right? It's about knowledge. It's about piety. Those are the
ones who deserve to lead the people. And that's why in to see this verse. And to understand this. Look at the status of the believers. The people of knowledge, look at someone like him and
look at the way our last panel with Isla
literally protecting decreed. They are paid off
at the time because of the fitna of
right where they the the
People of innovation tries to claim that the Quran is something created. It's created, right? The the Quran being the speech of Allah that it is something created and obviously they intended something out of it. They punished unfortunate Imam to get him to say yes the Quran is created. But he said no by Allah. I can only say what pleases Allah, Allah Allah. The Quran is the speech of Allah and it is not created. It is from Allah subhanaw taala and to him it will return as Allah azza wa jal is not creation, he was not created. So is his speech.
It was something that people who are certain they were trying to misguide the holy man with the scrape
Because it seems that he started to weaken and who wouldn't he used to get latched
on until he saw one of the better ones.
Just a better one. He said, Phil, Allah, who enough look at how this advice, maybe even have a commoner. They help some of the biggest scholars, he said in the firm. And don't let them
dissuade you from this. Because by Allah decrees of the is on your shoulders.
Imagine the the responsibility that he felt with this. So he, he said, By Allah, the words of this man
lifted his standard until we mentioned
because of what happened, and we praise Him because Allah subhanaw taala used and for the
list most people didn't give me the beginning of Allah subhanaw taala Allah provides Allah is the One who blesses Allah is the One who lived by the center. So when you see glory seekers from Allah, when you seek that Allah, this is your status, seek it from Allah seek it from the knowledge of Allah from the book of Allah. This is where glory comes from.
Many similar stories of many scholars were listed their status because of the sacred and blessing knowledge that they sought.
and Allah subhanaw taala is indeed acquainted with what you do. So therefore, always
watch Allah fear Allah subhanaw taala exactly as if you see him knowing that Allah subhanaw taala is well acquainted of what to do.
Do we have time to continue
it's a good place to stop.
Let me say something quickly Excuse me.
we're both of the opinion that this verse of the gathering is referring to the gatherings of
the assemblies and gatherings often.
It was a gathering where the military commander would get together with the believers and they would plot and plan for what they were going to do.
What appeal and sure you can choose to
get up in other words get up
to fight on the sake of
choosing Dr. Levine Ave Nicola Deena.
another opinion, the meaning of these gatherings and Danny making space and getting up and so on. And Allah subhanaw taala lifts the status of those people and He does what He wills will not Yes.
What are the implications?
It's a good question. And I don't hear it being asked. Much.
No, not because of that, because
Want to understand? What is the big deal people are saying the Quran has created or not.
To most of us now
I won't resist being less, just to say it's created or not, but the Imams sunnah, and these mountains of scholars, they knew the implications of it, this is why they resisted. And they said that they will never compromise on such a thing, because they knew the implications of the implication of it. When you say that the Quran because Allah subhanaw taala is not created, correct, He is the Creator.
And likewise, his speech, his speech is not something created, it is from Him alone, once you
transfer his speech, his
to the category have not been created, it means it is something that will eventually end because everything created.
It has a lifetime, it has a span, and then it ends, but the book of Allah, in other words, the speech of Allah
it doesn't have a beginning or an end, just like last as a woman.
And the speech of Allah.
It's part of
the speech of Allah is not something that was created. If it's created, number one, it would have a beginning and an end. Number two,
it can be tampered with.
Right, you can tamper with it. And this is why one of the ways that Imam Muhammad used to argue when the cloud is not created, it's not an object, it's not a sink.
The words of Allah subhanaw taala. They have the qualities of Allah subhanaw taala. And so he used to say to them,
oh, you know, whoever he was debating with, because they hadn't really debates, they would bring him out of prison. And they would bring some of the most knowledgeable, and the most argumentative, let's say, and they would get together to debate with each other. And we would, you know,
have the correct argument every time. So one time he said to him
while I was in prison, I was praying the Janaza prayer, he said why? He said I was reading
for most of my life, but now it died. So I was reading the Janaza prayer for he's trying to show Quran is not for objects, it's not something that has a spouse or life. It is the money.
It doesn't have the span or lifetime exactly like a loss.
Okay, it is as Allah subhanaw taala is the the is the person he is the Quran is the same. That's why these are many of the companions in the setup things to say
that it started with him
that it came from Allah subhanaw taala and it will return to Him. So it's not something they wanted to prove that it is and therefore they didn't even like the fact they tried to deny the fact that Allah speaks.
This Allah speak, of course, is that like,
of course not. Not like every other quality of Allah's pantalla but is there something called the speech of Allah Absolutely.

protects the Muslims in this situation, the pagan until they listen to the speech of Allah the words the philosopher so Allah has risen himself to saying that their speech they wanted to
cast doubts about all of these things. These are the only as far as I know some of the reasons of why
demand management and others
treat dangerous because it's talking about the Quran sorry.
No, no, these are these are Muslims. Of course, these are people of people of innovations. People who want to
claim that the Quran is so and and events
They convinced the Khalifa
eventually in prison, the labor law and tried to and he knows what's the Imam says yes, this is the case.
And this is the danger of it. But the the people of knowledge are firm, when it comes to the the book of Allah, when it comes to the religion of Allah, they don't care what the Khalifa has to say, what the Emir has to say what the the people have signalers has to say, the truth of it is, they'll stand by it. And that's why you'll find
many of the scholars of Islam, who we mentioned, and we loved and we learned from to this day.
They had their their the their own unique examples, where they stood
in front of the governor, the leader at the time, and the advice.
And we know that the best jihad is coming to
a word of truth in front of a
desk, or a dictator. These developers, they used to stand in front of them, and they would say things and
sometimes even instill fear in the hearts of the room. When a ruler would ask a scholar, what do you think of this palace of wine, millions of hundreds of rooms and maids and maidens and gold and silver and money and so on. And then they would maybe recite a verse of the Quran nowadays.
No has as much as you knew.
At that time, they would recite a verse from the Quran, maybe the first about the worthlessness of the dunya right.
They will this is the way they would advise the scholars, they have firmness when it came to speaking the word of truth they do care now,
as well as was lifted the status this is why one of the ways that the law was lifted the status of the scholars brothers and sisters is that until now, we learn from these
centuries after their death
promise you will be with us until the day
of books such as the the other side the sheet, look at this book Subhan Allah, Allah subhanaw taala has his author and
you you find there is
consensus amongst scholars about this book and it spreads just like like fire in a tree everywhere, but it will continue if this is the case it will continue like this. Though the scholar died
100 years ago approximately until now, we read this book and we say May Allah have mercy on an imam
for this book and many others, okay, some of the
books of the great scholars, they want us to the state we learn from it a book such as
how we develop how we know maybe 1200 years ago until now, it is a book that teaches
some of the good stuff up Okay, some of the books of
course, before all of the the books of the the four Imams how long ago again, about 1213 years ago
any final Imam Malik and Imam Shafi
for every person that benefit from that knowledge, they're being rewarded in the Grace
of Allah gives it to whomever he was. Therefore, if you yourself cannot spread knowledge, be an instrument in spreading knowledge.
Spreading books, beneficial books, beneficial fats was beneficial teachings beneficial
to non Muslims and so on.
Anything else was
shouldn't be aware. There are sisters upstairs, correct? Yes, there should be a way for the sisters also to ask questions. And one of the youth can go up or something like that.
anything else? Yes
There's one person
I know I know you think, okay
Or if there's another way that Allah azza wa jal has given him the ability to
whisper to many other times.
Unseen, we don't know. And it doesn't help us to know.
But definitely he has an army, right he has an army of the Hadith Muslim mentioned, where he gathered his army on top of the body of water, and he sees what each one is doing. And this one says I did this and this I misguided so and so, I did so and so, in the popular Hadith I mentioned to you before so, he has an ark, he has an army of sheltering from human beings as well as the and this is why he says as
was his minister coming home to South Africa
and after he says, Go ahead,
misguide whoever you can with your voice and some scholars said that this could be a reference to music, okay, the voice of the shape otherwise what is the voice of the shape was
and go ahead and attack
your infantry cavalry
is a reference to an army he has armies of Sheltie the agenda of the sheltering and so on
no one can do that one.
Okay, because he mentioned that he sees you who our community and his group or whoever's with him, yes, medical.
that you clearly see
what is the you will not bother anybody to get to a gap which is several rows in front it is okay.
But if you're going to bother people, people are sitting next to each other, and you have to move them apart. And
no, don't do that. Besides, as Jeff mentioned, the Hadith the Prophet Muhammad have the importance of coming early to the Java they used to go so early. Some people maybe when they know they're going to be busy, okay, some of the pious ones they would send someone to sit there
and to hold their place they don't want to lose it this is the way they are regarded as going early July May Allah make us of those of childless
and you see the kind of like their legs with the wife and the taking them to places
can you go in when the sitting you mean?
Oh, and they they
try to meet you. Yeah, in that case, if there's a gap to fill that gap, and try to get them Yeah, that's a different situation. This is for prayer. Prayer, you must and you must not leave any gaps because the Prophet said that he saw shame on standing in the roles of the believers trying to distract them. Because the the the people who are praying less gaps don't leave gaps. This is why I say when you stand, do not stand such a wide stance.
Shoulders stance, because if you stand too wide, guess what happens? Number one, your hamstrings will hurt you. Number two, you're living
between the shoulders that there'll be many customers will stand a shoulder.
Nowadays, it's one likes to take their own island. This is my island. He might even draw a border. This is mine.
to be tight. So that a few fewer to push the hole to
shoulder to shoulder and foot to foot. This is the way it should be. Nowadays it's islands islands
Steven between the feet and between the shoulders. I mean, there's plenty of space for the fan and the ones with
no this is not
the same time, don't step on his foot.
Allah guide them this step on your foot, literally. I mean, they they push things forth, they push your feet, just stand comfortably, okay foot the foot, but without stepping on anyone's toes that
shoulder to shoulder I know some people
right, because some of the
to widen your hands when you do this route to widen your houses what Prophet Muhammad, Allah means to do it is said that he made his students so wide that an animal small animal would be able to enter between his arms and his nice fight. This is sooner, but it is also so not even wise not to bother your brothers or sisters during the prayer. So if you cannot go that
a little bit closer, because it's more important that the line be
pulled tight Yes.
Also not correct.
One should not ask in front of the one who is praying. And this is why
Danny brothers, sisters, forget to pray sooner. Number one, try to have
something in front of you so that no one has in front of number two. Please make wait don't pray in the same place that especially though they'll pray right there someone has to leave quickly. They cannot. Because they don't want to have anyone else. Go back anyway. So
the sooner sooner does that hope this is where the prophet muhammad sallallahu Sallam used to pray it at home long prayers and imagine that if you have to bring them at it for whatever reason, at least try to make waves try to go to the back try to go to the side. Okay, so that people can pass this question
You want to get out and stuff?
Again, leaving? Yes. You said when you're coming into friend is fine not to disturb people leaving
Somebody is just
not the same as when you enter because the people are busy listening to the environments in order not to distract them
because everyone's sitting and there's one person or two people and they're going to overlap if you can avoid disturbing them on the way but it's not like coming in.
But definitely try to avoid it
should never understand your brother. Yes.
It is yes, this is the Sunnah. Why? Because
prayer is at
its best to pray prayers at home except
Except the food
mentioned several reasons Number one, it is
helpful and more leaning towards having your parent be sincere. In other words, it is a reason for more sincerity in your prayers, that you are not praying in front of people to show up and so on. And this is not to distract. You're praying at home. So it means you're praying for Allah subhanaw taala number two
it is light for your house.
Because prayer isn't light
and you want your house to be a place where angels come to be a place of guidance and knowledge and light Okay, and not to be a place of devils and constriction and so on. Okay, and sometimes people can feel lonely they feel that this is a house where there's no Baraka there's no nothing there's no prayer.
Seven Hadith go to make your houses like graveyard.
because in the graveyard, it's not a place to pray, right? It's not prohibited to pray in the graveyard. Okay?
So he's saying Don't make your house like a graveyard. In other words, a house which is empty
soon as it's light for your house and it's a way to bring an attract the angels, and this is why it's so not to present at home, but it is also one of the most neglected symbols that we see nowadays. However, let me mention for some people don't pray the sun in the masjid, guess what? They're going home, they're gonna go straight to sleep. They're gonna get busy with their wife and their children. We're on the internet and immediately the dunya enters their hearts. This is gonna happen 99% In your case, pray from the machine don't miss it. In that case, your funnel is working. Okay. Such as
someone who says I'm gonna pray with to the end of the night. And they've been single for the last month and they're missing with it for the last month. No. Yes, it's recommended to pray with us. And the end of the night before but if you're not able to do it, right before you sleep there the Chapin is working on you the other way. Okay. But try this is this tried to pay the tone this is more this is recommend
