100 salatu salam ala Rasulillah
listen if Coco Kohli with the highly Sunday when she could carry
out I mean,
if you need a lot of new method we
I praise the Lord lady and I said prayers and blessings upon the best of humanity and the final messenger, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and his noble family and righteous companions and all those that follow them with guidance.
Glory be to Allah, no knowledge have we accept that what you have taught us in video are the All Knowing the all wise, I ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide my tongue in my heart, to open all of our hearts and our brains, to this Megatron and to make it indeed an argument for us and not against us on the Day of Judgment, and that it be a way that Allah subhanaw taala lifts us and lifts the Ummah with the Quran, and that is not the way of relegating us or humiliating us, when I have the Rila so we ask Allah subhanaw taala that it Be sincere for him, and then it be for the sake of opening the our eyes to the Quran and opening the eyes of our families and our friends in the, to the Noble
their brothers and sisters, we continue with Sora.
And we said that this is a Surah, which
probably Allah Allah, also named with another name and that is Surah.
No, but what did he call it what it is, and that's called the surah.
because it starts off with this amazing incident that occurred during the life of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and you said it was in the fourth year injury Allah Allah.
It was before.
However, it was after the expelling off the north, the first tribe, which also
reneged on their promise, and they broke their pack, with Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. So this was always the way. I mean, it's, it's, you can almost say it's their nature, except maybe for a few exceptions, but this is what they used to do. The prophets, Allah Azza love is making a pact with them, and he would then break it. And this is why the Long Island when Satan
conquered and he caught when he conquered Palestine.
At that time, once he entered, we know that the high priest of the area, of course, of course, was in the hands of the Romans. So when he gave him the key to a symbolic of the fact that now the Muslims have regained Palestine is one condition, this hybrid was that you don't allow a do to co exist with us here in an aspirin in Jerusalem. This is not the wish of say the Allah this is the wish of the high priest of Jerusalem. This is the case they broke. They broke their promises. You can and this is what happened with Prophet Muhammad
in the case of many anomalies.
When we sent this last panel with Isla summarize, the issue was this idea that they oppose Allah and His messenger and this is why they deserve what they deserve. Then Allah subhanaw taala says
I will talk to her all
700 Whatever you have cut down of their palm trees, or left standing on their trunks, it was by permission
He would disgrace the defiantly in this will be
listened to this is
one of the reason of revelation for this, as we said last time that what the Muslims have done is that they cut the trees,
they cut the palm trees have been in November. Now
you might read that the reason for cutting the trees
was for a military purpose. This is what we mentioned last time, because they were high trees, and they were acting as a fortification for the Jews,
between them and the Muslims, and therefore the Muslims then went and cut the trees and then they weren't able to throw arrows at them to shoot them with arrows, or stones or anything else. And following the blockade of six days, but eventually capitulated and they started breaking their houses and they were expelled
did not make exactly it didn't show what the exact reason for cutting the trees work. Now some of those tools
for that purpose for a military purpose. What's most interesting is that what actually happened is while they were cutting the trees, some of the some of the migrants the forbade the Muslims who are cutting the trees from cutting the trees.
But you ask why?
Why would they prevent each other?
From cutting the trees?
The tree is a blessing from Allah. So why are you cutting the tree okay?
Is it permissible to cut trees from the COFA
it is not
in the rules of engagement and war in Islam, the same permissible to do so. It's impermissible to do just basically destroy the land for no specific reason. And have a look at the the wisdom of the religion.
Which no enemy of Islam will confess to, or make clear, and you'll never hear this. Unfortunately, in the media, you'll always hear the opposite. Even though it's a war.
The Muslims are forbidden from cutting down the trees and from killing the animals, and so on, though you hear some yawning stories that make your hair gray of what some of the enemies of Islam used to do way back especially when they went into Palestine. We're not talking about trees and animals only we're talking about the human beings just random slaughtering cold fluttering for no specific reason to panela. Here, we know now Islam prohibits the cutting down of trees of the Kufa this is in general, it is not permitted permitted to do that. More interestingly, the Jews,
the Jews have been in the leaves. So they started calling out
to us to cutting down the trees, that is used to prevent corruption in the lungs, from doing what you're doing, Allah Subhanallah the Jews themselves, the enemies themselves know that these this is the way of the Muslims, these are the mothers, and this is the character of the Muslims, even during war.
And this is why brothers and sisters when we talk to non Muslims, the only non Muslims here
we need to show
that the wisdom is not by completely eradicating wars, because wars are a reality of life, as unfortunate as it may be. And it will continue to be so until the day of judgment. And what we see now in the 21st century, and the ultimately civilized world.
Wars are increasing, not decreasing, by the way, despite the United Nations charters and resolutions. And despite all of the different organizations that exist and the organizations that
basically emphasize the issue of human rights and all of that, wars are increasing blood, blood is being sent
ruthlessly and unjustly and so on. But where does the wisdom come? The wisdom comes in the rules of engagement of war. So if wars are a reality, then how do we explain the beauty of Islam? It's in the rules of engagement. Look at the ways the Muslims used to act even in war
and this is why profit
Hello, and save.
As it is no, they used to forgive the Muslims from killing women. But you see what the kuffaar do to the Muslim women now, they use they forbade the killing of women, they forbade the killing of children, what are they going to do? They forbade the killing of
the older people. And they also forbade the killing of the monks in the monastery.
Because in some cases, knew that
people in the enemy territory there will be people who have literally isolated themselves for the worship of Allah, though they are worshipping in the wrong way. Right, though the Creed is different. So he said, leave the monks in the monasteries worshiping Allah looking at the mercy and the wisdom of the religion, even
even though these are the competence, okay, as opposed to what
they call the people of Guantanamo, that they're not competent, and therefore they don't have any rights.
That's why Prophet Muhammad.
In one of the battles, he saw a woman
laying down, and he got angry, and he started shouting on the Muslims. And he said, Who killed this woman?
What did she do to deserve to be killed?
Also a practical implementation of this rule that we just mentioned. So you see, even the manners, even at the time of war, and this is probably the most difficult time for a Muslim to show that
because you're dealing with enemies, and you're dealing with people who want to kill you, and so on. And we see what the US is doing now, in Iraq, though they claim their civilization and their humaneness and so on.
So they were so the Muslims started forbidding each other, why are you cutting the trees.
Other Muslims said, this is part of the booty of war.
And they started arguing, and for that reason, Alonso was in sentence first,
to clarify the issue. And that is that whatever you have come down and more countries are standing on there. It was by permission of Allah.
This, my brothers and sisters was an exception.
This was an exception to the rules.
And what was the reason it's clear. And so Allah would this, he would disgrace the defiantly disobedient,
this is another rule.
And this is part of the also the strength that exists in the religion. And I want to emphasize this
when we explain the religion,
especially for non Muslims, many times,
and it is okay to do so, we mentioned and we emphasize that it is a religion. And it is, and it is a religion, of understanding, and a religion of tolerance, and so on and so forth. And you can see that, and this is what we were just talking about. But at the same time, there are elements of strength in the religion that no one can deny. And you should not deny, and you should be clear about it, and you should be proud of it. And the person who has the slightest understanding, or being an open minded person will understand it. Is there an army in the world
that doesn't practice
or have strength that doesn't power itself up? That doesn't
hype itself up for the meeting of the enemy?
Army that doesn't do this besides what you see on television, this is all just part of the media, if you only hear what they say, When they are together, when they are preparing for the army, we saw it in some cases. Some of the soldiers that went to Iraq, they were saying, for practical purposes. When they were asked, What are you doing here, they said, We're coming to kill from an office, this is what they're looking for. This is their goal. This is their character. These are their mannerisms, and so on.
But now we're talking that the religion has strength in it.
And there are elements of strength we cannot deny and we should not deny, rather, we should clarify that it makes sense. So how would you explain
such a verse to someone who hates Islam? Are you gonna make him love Islam more by showing this verse? No way. There are elements in the religion that will you
the enemies and distance the ones who carry hate in the hospital wards the religion anyway. And this is precisely the meaning of the verse in the Quran, while
they can be coupled
what Allah subhanaw taala sent a little Quran, it's really only increase many of them in their defiance and their disbelief. Those are people who already carry enmity towards Islam and its followers in the first place. And that's when they see the elements of strength in Islam that will only increase their hatred, correct. It's just
it's common sense.
most of the elements of Islam, as we see, they're all elements of the
justice, of compassion, of understanding of tolerance, and all of these beautiful words, but at the same time, there is strength in the religion, it's not a religion to be slapped around, as a Muslim is not a person to be slapped around. The religion is here to stay, the religion is meant by Allah subhanaw taala, so that it can prevail over the other ways of life as Allah, Allah mentions in the other. These are elements of strength, that any idea
or philosophy, or even a religion must contain, to exist.
And it's like rules and laws. When you look at the rules and laws.
Everyone says no, the rule of law must be above. Well, why? What is the rule of law?
If the laws that human beings concocted, but yet, people are in agreement, but not everybody, that these rules should be to prevail and everyone needs to abide by it. Similarly, these are the rules of Allah azza wa jal. These are these are the laws of Allah subhanaw taala. And they are meant to be here and they are meant to prevail. And here Allah azza wa jal shows you that element of strength. This is an exception where the Muslims cut down the trees for the reason of this gracing the disbelievers. And this is one of the rules accepted in Islam,
that it is permissible to do an act or to perform an act solely for the cause of disgracing
the enemy. And this was an example of it. And this is why that's why you see also the verse the way it is revealed. It is revealed to people who are doubting this action because they're used to doing that, and they are
they don't believe in corrupting and they don't believe in destroying the land for no specific purpose and maybe even for the case of displacing the disbelief. But in some situations, this is permissible. This is one of the this is why you the the way the verse is is is you read it, it shows that there was this idea in the first place in the mind. It's like the other is beautiful and another also a foundation for the way you're supposed to treat
Allah virgins does not forgive you, from those who did not fight and expel you from your houses, that you be that you practice are performing with them and that you are with them. Allah does not forbid. So you notice. He didn't say he commands you. He said he does not forbid you. It means that in the first place, they may have thought that Allah forbids this. So Allah azza wa jal is telling them no. Similarly here, he is telling them because in the first place, they had this argument about whether it was correct, we're not
I love it. This was the most that the when the Muslims were doing this, some of the listeners found difficulty in it, because they're not used to it. And they were their manners, and their character was so refined
is clarified for them and is making certain for them that what's happened here happens by
and by the law. In other words, don't worry about it. Allah knows
was commanded this way and this was an exception and this is one of the verses that confirmed this rule that it is allowed to perform an act for the sole reason of disgracing.
So he says and this is why in the end he says, well the u z and fast and Sudha Allah azza wa jal so that he would displace the defiantly disobedient
when I came
along wanna show you
and what Allah has stored
a property to His Messenger from them, you did not spare for it in an expedition any horses or camels, but Allah gives His Messengers power over whom He wills and Allah has over all things complicated.
This is speaking about the
what the Muslims were able to gain of the wealth and property of Lenin
in the situation.
And you notice the verb faint?
this refers to what is called an fate and fate
is different than worry.
And what is the difference between them?
The difference between fate, the wealth of the kuffar in this situation, as opposed to the booty of what what's the difference
between the company's not necessarily chasing, maybe they left on their own for practical purposes, right. But the fact that the listeners didn't have to fight
to get that right, this is the difference between faith and the Hanina. The other way was called honeymoon right? As
so here, this is referring to fate with those those five was there fighting between letting the listener it was the fear that
in the heart of
SubhanAllah. This awesome,
which Allah subhanaw taala helped them with, because Allah azza wa jal is helping them in the situation and his wisdom. He struck the fear in the hearts of many, it was six days, in a matter of six days, they decided the hypocrites that promised us their support, have fled. And this is always the situation unfortunately, the empty promises of loose who shall meet careful of those who shout
and they scream and we're going to support you and we're going to do this in this for you and we're going to be with you and so on and so forth. We see this a lot, my dear brothers and sisters, and this happened even in the case of sadness, the same probably Allah Allah, when they
they shouted their support and then they abandoned
them when after thinking and the love and obey said I have 2000 strong men to support you. We will not allow you to be exploited. If you are exposed, we will fight those who are exploiting you, and we will be with you and so on. It is all empty promises and they all
this is why there was no fighting between them. After Allah azza wa jal cast fear in the hearts of the Jews, they announced their surrender to the Muslims. And they started taking the property, as we said, When Prophet
allowed them to go alive, though they tried to assassinate,
he allowed them to go alive and he allowed them to take their property, whatever their kennels can hope except weapons have
started breaking their houses and taking their doors and their windows and their pillars. And you can just imagine this type of Halla leaving not wanting to leave anything for the Muslims.
this wealth that you muslim gave you did not gain by fighting. This is the difference. This is why
in the popular opinion
Though there's a lot of differences between scholars on this
issue, the issue of booty for aneema, as opposed to
the popular opinion
is that this is the way to split this wealth is up to Prophet Muhammad Salah Mahalia.
It's his. And he splits. So he split it, he took some for himself. He gave most of it away to the poor and needy. And this is why Allah He gave
Aloha Jerry, of course, the migrants being who they were, and deserving
what they deserve, right, and they had a special status and as well as we know, and in addition, the fact that they had left their houses, and they left their wealth, and they left their businesses and they left their contacts, and they left everything, and therefore they were more in need than the
He gave them to people from the unsolved, who were in abject poverty, those two
because of their needs, but otherwise, he gave most of it to an Muhajirs.
And Allah subhanaw taala
makes it clear in the verse that this myth came to the Muslims here, they did not
gain proof, I think, oh, because he says some of them are lazy, in hiding whether recap.
An Aegis in Arabic, means to move quickly towards. So in other words, you didn't go quickly on your horses or your camels in an expedition today, this wealth that you gain, you gain this house,
By Allah's grace, and why the support Allah azza wa jal gave you by casting fear in the hearts of right.
A human hiding, what are the capital? When I came alive, you suddenly lose
How do you explain this also, this is another example of what we were just saying about the cutting down of the trees, when the deal
of strength in the religion
that we cannot deny and that we are proud of. Similarly here, notice the verb that's used, you send them this is usually used
to mean that Allah subhanaw taala.
asleep, okay. Usually,
when we speak about the messengers, we say a Lazarus and symptom for guidance, Alonso is in some of them for work. Well, now.
We have not sent you except as a mercy to all of humanity, right? And Allah, those two guys
in the coffee machine and one of you
to all of humanity as a guidance and we see that
but at the same time,
the messengers of Allah, that Allah's peace and blessings be upon them all, are the most beloved to Allah, and are the most just the definition of justice
is to put everything in its right place.
Therefore, the ones who deserve your
benevolence and magnanimity and you're all these beautiful words,
give it to them, but there are others who don't deserve that. And there are others who only understand
by being strong with them. And this applies even to children,
some children, and some people even the only way to deal with them is to deal with the likely with compassion and so on. This is the way that that works for them, there are others
and they themselves. The only way you can really get me is dealing with me with strength, right.
Analysis, okay. different personalities. In this case, Allah subhanaw taala says will allow you
these are people who deserve this kind of treatment disgrace, they deserve to be disgraced. They broke the law, they tried to assassinate the public. Then he even gave
and he gave them a deadline and they refused. Subhanallah so you see all of this. You see all of their
50 towards loosens coming out. And it became clear. And this is why the Proper Clause dealt with them in this way. And this is why Allah azza wa jal describes it in this way. And this is the only place where Allah, Allah mentioned the prophets and the messengers of Allah, Allah in this life, that Allah, it's almost as if Allah, Allah, His messenger, and he moves his messages against the people of transmission, and the people of enmity towards the religion, and the people who will try to harm
who will try to harm women, and children and so on.
That strength is required in the situation.
And therefore, I go back to the example of the Army, is there any army that gets ready for battle? By saying to each other, that you should go, and you should pat their back, and we shouldn't be nice to them, and so on? No one, but the Muslims, I guarantee you, otherwise, everyone else is just going out there to kill. That's why you see on some of their helmets going to kill.
This is civilization for you. But here, no, it's not like that. But
in some situations, this is what is required. And this is what was required with the use of many models, after all of the treatment between the of the Muslims towards them and Prophet Muhammad towards them. So this is an element of strength. Brothers and sisters do not deny it. And don't try to downplay or diluted either in the course of Dawa, because once you make the context clear, and the situation clear, then it is perfectly clear. And why how come Subhanallah
for Muslims, it's not allowed for them to be strong, or to have any elements of strength. We're supposed to be like, sheep like lambs, just ready for slaughter. No, it's not like
strength is always desired. And everyone and despite when everyone has an all of the beautiful diplomacy, and all of the beautiful part you see on the media, everyone is just after power. I mean, let's be honest with each other. Everyone wants more land. Everyone wants more power. Everyone wants the oil, which Allah subhanaw taala gave us everyone wants to influence in one way or another.
Nowadays, the Muslims are under attack before many other countries, and they were also invaded, they were allowed to resist, they were allowed to be strong. What was the problem? Now, if anybody tries to obtain any type of
nuclear weapons, I'm talking about the smallest weapons, you're a terrorist. But when you own more than 300 nuclear warheads, you are the peace loving.
Anyway, the idea is that this is an another element of what I can allow you to send me
gives His Messengers power over whom He will.
There's another last punk irises that this will be
another element of strength, that Allah subhanaw taala will strike the truth against evil and the truth will defeat the falsehood and the evil.
In this situation, strength is required.
is wisdom in such a situation,
and in other situations, and this is usually the the the only way of
mercy and compassion and gentleness and so
so after he made this clip, he says as Allah subhanaw taala is over all things keep
want to watch
up, what Allah is torn to his messenger from the people of the towns, it is for Allah and for the messenger and for his near relatives, and orphans and
The standard traveler, so that it will not be a perpetual distribution among the rich from you. And whatever the messenger has given you, and what he has forbidden, refrain from And fear Allah, indeed Allah severe in penalty.
Again, we emphasize the distinction between faith and with aneema.
They didn't fight for it, how does he? How does the performance Island spend it? He says, well, not
the law school, when,
by the way, the text here is identical to the text of the IRS, except for one difference.
Here, he says, for dinner whenever there
one of us who wanted it.
And for that purpose, and for this support this idea, the popular opinion of Scholars is that faith
is to be distributed amongst these categories by Prophet Muhammad wa salam in whatever ratio he desires.
And Nima has specified ratios given in the
to do is once it
to Allah, His Messenger, he's missing some of ours, and the rest of the the
mystery. So all of them split
1/5 Where does the fourth fifth go?
For the army for the Mujahideen. Right? They deserve the lion's share, because they fought right?
In the face, they didn't find.
So on what basis does the army get the forfeit?
This is why it is the popular opinion of scholars that the site is distributed amongst these categories. And Allah
is directing the proper person to only distribute it though in whatever ratio we desire amongst these categories,
the relatives, and the orphans,
the poor and needy in general, and ethnicity, the standard traveler, look at the way Subhanallah Islam constantly is moving alive, moving the welfare towards the ones who need
the orphans and the poor, and the needy, and the standard traveler and so on. And if you can ever be a tool to give to these people do so, if you are in your town and you find a visitor and they cannot find a way and they cannot find an accommodation, go and be the person to give them that kind of refuge. Right? How's the poor and the needy,
and also if you can, if you want to be this close to the Beloved Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, in Paradise, and so on. So here, it was for the protocol salam to give, as he desires.
When we see as in the other eyes,
and he says,
Do you know what it means for that portion to be for Allah.
It means for the messenger
and this is part of the way Allah subhanaw taala lists the status of Muhammad Sallallahu is mentioning him along with him with Allah subhanaw taala. But can you give money to Allah yourself, in other words to give to Allah except in charity, but that's in a metaphorical sense, right. So here what it means that this fifth
or at least in the eye of the, that the fifth is distributed amongst Allah and His messenger,
Allah has listened to hear on one
right, in other words,
it is for the messenger SallAllahu sunnah and this is the way all of these callers have to see it, understood it that the the fifth of the fifth
because we said the fifth in the case of booty is distributed amongst
Allah His messenger.
They will provide a semi so they get a fifth of a fifth which is how much
20 divided by 4% divided by five, right? So 4% To the left, and this is how that is split the situation. This is the explanation of what goes to Allah and the messenger SallAllahu ala you
live in Florida
this call has expanded as Ben has you and many pilots.
And the reason that
I mentioned is because they even
many of them did not eat them in religion in belief, but they hated them, and they supported them and they were willing to Hashem stranden
the shaft of Parliament remember that three years unjust,
oppressed, oppressive blockade against
him and his followers and then we'll hash it
even though they will also disbelievers, but they hated them, though not for religion. They eaten them out of
let's let's say, okay, family and kin are
a type of tribal
let's call it fanaticism Call it whatever you want.
Okay, but in the end, that's what it was.
They deserve something for that. And this is why I will call it the uncle of profit.
Though he is the uncle Subhanallah and
Hey, protecting the prophets, Allah, Allah has all kinds of protection. And he it seems like he was about to become Muslim. But his evil, Entourage is evil environment relegated him to hellfire.
Because they reminded him of what they reminded him of something Subhanallah
that was not going to benefit him. He was on the deathbed. What are you reminding him of what people will say you're going to your grave, and what's your family will say, and have the space for the space and so on, and he died as a disbeliever. But for what event for Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he is the least punished in hellfire
to wear shoes, or some
something wearing something
on his legs so hot that his brain will boil from it will Allah protect us? This is the least of punishment, the least punished in Hellfire
for what he did for Prophet Muhammad.
the relatives are going to Hashem
rest are self explanatory. Orphans and Mr. Kane, the poor and needy
is the stranded traveler.
why he split it up this way, can you lay a corner do let them bring in earlier.
So that it will not be of distribution between something that the rich take for themselves. They you know, this was the way of the jacket.
This is the way they used to do it. The commander might take the whole thing
distributed amongst the close, the ones who are close to him.
He'll do whatever he wants with it, he'll distributed in the most unjust fashion.
Ultimately to be distributed amongst the rich. This is what we see. In the modern view of capitalism.
All of the money goes to the rich, the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. This is capitalism for them.
And this is why socialism came about. And this is why communism came about and tries to define and give you the diametric meaning the opposite of the complete opposite meaning.
No, we don't want individuals to get rich. So we're gonna distribute all of the wealth amongst people. So one group put emphasis on what is called milkier. Okay, self ownership. And then the other group went to the other extreme and said no group ownership, and they're both incorrect. And Islam came with the moderate middle, which respected the right to self worship, but at the same time, distributes wealth amongst the poor and the needy.
And in many ways,
in many of the legislations of Islam and rulings of Islam, Allah azza wa jal moves that wealth towards the ones who need it, as in the situation que les Akula. Do let's
look at our world situation now isn't as this week
that it is an element of their possession. It's something that they have control over. And now look at the money, where's the money?
Look at the poor and the needy, all over the world, not just Africa, even in the richest of nations, new finds the rich are living in an area, then you go to another area, see abject poverty, abject poverty, people can't find the food to eat.
What's the food my dear brothers and sisters, that we throw away in the low ground, I swear by Allah and this was
confirmed by by many studies, that the food that is thrown away in the world, if it is kept and it is preserved, and it is distributed amongst the poor of the world, you will no longer have any poverty,
you will not have hunger.
People are just squandering.
The rich are just throwing money on nothing on their own ownership, que les Hakuna Bula convenient.
In other words, Allah subhanaw taala needed this way
stipulated in the book, that this is the way the money is to be distributed in the case of the faith. And this is precisely what Prophet Muhammad salallahu Alaihe. Salam did.
He, as we said, took some for himself. And it's a said that it was enough for him and his family for a whole year. So you can imagine how much he took. And we know, as the Hadith mentioned, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said that two or three months would pass by, and a fire would not be lit in the house for eating. And you see our fridges now. And you see our schools and our microwaves SubhanAllah. And this is the beloved to Hamlet from the lungs. And not only that, in one situation, he wants us to feed someone. And he went to his family and his wife. And he said, What do we have? And they said, all we have is water.
All of his wife.
They only have water. He had to send this money to another
group of companions to feed him. He didn't have anything to feed him. So don't think and don't let the same man tell you, Oh, the protocol is taking something for himself.
Is this for nothing. And he has to give his money to everyone. And he could not say no, because he was applying the
Don't let the person who comes at you go away
with it with a heavy heart that you didn't give him anything he used to give, he could not look good. And this is what the company used to warn each other. And they used to warn some of the nomads when they were coming up. Because they know that once he is asked he has to give, he cannot walk.
So they used to forbids him from going because they say that You are embarrassing him. And here's what he cannot say.
When she got
she spent it off. She sent it out to one of her mates. And they gave it all in charity. And then when she came back he said
what did you do? She said like you said we don't have any any any food left. He said why don't you tell us I would have left something
I would have left
something to eat a few days. They used to give it all in charity. They used to live the most modest of living. And this is why Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu Salam used to sit and eat on the floor, not on a high chair on a huge dining table with 100 different types of foods. He used to sit on the floor, and he used to get close to the floor like this. And he always used to eat with his hands. And he used to say I eat like a slave and I live like
like a slave servant to Allah version. This is the way they used to live. So he took something from the face for his family.
He distributed the rest to the poor and the needy, and the only kept some also for the making of weapons and preparations for other battles and so on.

And it is what proves

for confirming what is in
the failing what is generalized in
many of the commandments and prohibitions in the Quran are generally correct.
This is why I asked you
where does it seem
that Santa Claus is four units?
Does it save anywhere in the Quran? You read the Quran right?
Did you see anything about the offering for cover to cover? Anything?
300 to nothing. Should we stop praying? Allah, Allah palletize as well penis Allah, wa.
establish prayer. But how do I establish prayer, follow the messengers on the line and follow the way of the messenger SallAllahu sallam, whatever Allah, whatever the messenger has given him, and what he has forbidden you refrain from
this is why and this is one of the simplest answers to give to the Quran. May Allah guide
that came out from the Islam saying, we follow the Quran and only the Quran. And we have nothing to do with the
Subhan Allah. How did your brains
direct you to this understanding?
To follow only in the Quran, and you have nothing to do with the Hadith.
And you know,
one of those, when you start speaking about the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad wa salam, you find he quivers he doesn't like when you start speaking about a hadith as if it's not something that they follow. Be careful.
The first reply to them is this.
Do you pray brother? No, I don't pray, then it's clear. You are here. You have nothing to do this. So I pray the other. You pray you pray. Question. Yeah. How many units
Where did you get that from?
From the Quran?
The Beloved Muhammad Sallallahu. How do you claim the Quran? This is the one
in this room
was mentioning the Hadith of the Beloved.
Mad still she mad when Nan Assad Assad.
The Prophet sallallahu sallam said, May Allah curse the one.
And he mentioned them in the female. He mentioned the female gender, but it applies to males and females. This is because what the females used to do with that time. Now it's the opposite. Everything's the opposite. You look at the world today. It's the world of opposites.
So he cursed the ones who put back to
the one who puts it and the one who puts it or does it for them. And he cursed the ones who the women who play with their eyebrows, it is forbidden to play with their eyebrows
to the rest of the
men, a woman
heard the same from the
animal mother. So she went to him. And she said, I was told that you are saying this and this as this she is
unhappy with what he said.
So he said, why shouldn't I curse? The one that the messenger curse
and the one that is cursed in the book of Allah
and she said
By Allah, I read the Quran from cover to cover.
But then it wasn't in the book form, right?
But she read from the beginning to the end she said I didn't find it. What you're saying that it is it's in the Quran. He said to her, Do you love me, diverse
for the Lord,
don't you read this verse?
It means everything that the messenger is from Allah Allah
is binding and everything that he forbids, is binding. So he said this is
the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
And because Allah subhanaw taala has been encrypted.
Welcome the Quran, right. But for all practical purposes, it is as binding as the Quran.
That's what he meant by this. And you see the understanding
of the companions on the lungs.
The the meaning that he is giving to this woman, this is what it's about this
is generalities directs us to follow everything. philosophy says, As soon as we establish its authenticity, we follow without a doubt,
because it is what it is right from a must. Right? And this is why it's one of the legend. When does he say
when they uncouple, right? And the the messengers, speaking about the messenger, the messenger SallAllahu Sallam does not speak of his own vain desire. And his when it's all in who
that he sticks, his inspiration from the last panel.
She said to him the rest of the story.
Then she said to him, but I saw some of your wives doing it, doing that, which is cursed and Hadith. He said, who go and look at them, you will not see that any of them do that.
And if any of them do that, there would be no relationship between me. And indeed, she went and saw that. They and his wife did not do that.
No, not like that. They follow the Prophet Muhammad. Allah says they love him, and therefore they follow what he says. And this is a rule my dear brothers and sisters, that we must
make like a slogan for us in our life. We're gonna talk a little sweet
because he only commands from a lot and He forbids from Allah. When he is telling you it is like a loss pelota Allah is telling you because in the first pistol guidance, so why do we not do that? When Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said
that everyone will enter paradise except,
except one category.
Except the ones who refuse, refuse the competitors
of Allah for the ones who refuse, he said, whoever.
And Whoever disobeys me, is the one who will refuse, because you refuse the authority of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, as a messenger from God, to give you the message of God. So here,
we should follow the messenger.
And He has commanded so many things with your brothers and sisters. We don't follow it today. And he has prohibited so many things. And we don't follow it today. And we put it behind our backs. Give me some examples, please.
so many people dealing in usury, though it is something that
evil it is and how bad it is. Yes. What else?
wearing gold for men and silk, right? Yes. What else?
in the Quran also. What else?
Muslim can be many things he can drink, he can do this and that, but he cannot be a liar.
bribery riving. He said Allah is the One who grinds up the one who gives the bribe. The one who requests a bribe and the one who gives a bribe. Allah curses them, but yet it's something we put behind our backs. What else
this is, uh,
this is this is
this is all we'll make it as a program and inshallah for that we get rid of these
I wish it
What else cheating
not respecting women, okay giving them the rights right? And family and parents and disobedience towards parents and not praying a lot, Allah, Allah, guide us and bring this ummah back
to the way of Allah is missing
And this is why this prophet Muhammad himself, he said, Allah to come to DC, Mr. Patton, that whatever I ordered you to do,
perform it to the best of your ability as
to the best of your ability, similarly in the public, some comments,
but then he said, Well
in the case of the command, he tried to do it to the best of your ability. But in the case of ambition, he said, avoided, avoided completely. And this is what we see, well, now
we're gonna have fun living and avoiding it means what? A wedding is completely right.
move away from it. Or you it's okay if you stay close to it, but just
practice it yourself.
I'm speaking about alcohol, because this is what everyone is saying no, the ludicrous claim
that the IRS
is avoiding. So it's very similar to
the people who want to drink alcohol, and want to say that Allah permitted alcohol, or saying thanks, Kenny, is just stay away from it doesn't mean you can drink and complete it doesn't mean it's haram. Maybe this is what they say Subhan Allah.
It means stay away from avoidance even physically.
I'm certainly authentic hadith, that the one who sits on a table where alcohol is being drunk
the one who sits on a table where people are drinking alcohol he is he was making notice.
In other words, stay away from it's completely out of your life. Alcohol is a monster my brothers and sisters, it is a devil Allah, ask the people who are drowning in the sin of alcohol.
I mean, it's a devil, and it has been tamed. Their life is linked to alcohol, you take away alcohol from their life, they might die.
How difficult it is, Therefore Allah and His mercy and His love for us tells us to avoid it completely. Don't even sit around it for all practical purposes anymore. And here he says.
It means avoid all what Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam prohibited it for our own good.
What Allah and Allah in Allah had he's always taking us back to fearing Allah subhanaw taala. And to remember that Allah subhanaw taala punishments are severe. And this is what we need in this situation right? With Allah in the wash.
He didn't say what's in the love
and fear Allah because he is Severe in punishment, or when keeping us in His wisdom, between hope and fear, hope and fear, hoping for His Mercy hoping for Paradise fearing his punishment, fearing Hellfire with Allah. Allah said either fear Allah indeed Allah is Severe and penalty may Allah subhanaw taala protect us from His punishment protects us from hellfire and help us to follow Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in all that he commanded, and avoid all of that He prohibited and then he brings us together with him in sha Allah in the highest the paradise with the rest of the prophets in the companions and the pious in the market. last panel Tada. Forgive me a new and accept

any questions or comments?
Brothers, sisters, again if the sisters have questions or comments or something we'll send one of the children shallow upstairs and he can
cutting the trees
do you like wearing white?
Everyone likes wearing
I know you think I misunderstood because I didn't, I'm getting there
when you were white,
the slightest speck of dirt you get on that white gown or shirt or whatever, you see it immediately. But when it's dark, you don't see it.
The goal of Islam is white,
beautiful, clean lines. So the slightest speck
causes others to see it and causes you to see it as dirt. And this is why proper wearing white, that's probably gonna force others it's black, and therefore it's all dirty, and you get dirt on it and it doesn't show. But for Islam, the slightest speck
will make others see it.
This is something very small as the cutting down of trees. People are cutting next. The enemies of Islam now are cutting people's necks. And they're cutting people's bodies and their muse mutilating people's bodies. And now, if anyone wants to come and say, you are cutting trees,
it's a small speck on the wiping gun. I say this only
from the standpoint that
who has that much blood on their hands can come and criticize Muslims.
For something like that,
or the religion for that matter. Because this is
not only is it rude, it's not sensical, okay, it's like when the, when people came to
the companions, and they were asking him about the blood of
killing a flyer on mosquito in the state of Florida, and they were from Allah. And then he said, subhanAllah, the people of Iraq are asking about the blood of a mosquito. And they are the ones who took the blood of
Bobby Allah and hula.
Similarly, here, when you come, and you have done what you have done, and you have taken the lives of human beings, that you have taken, these multitudes, you are coming to criticize the religion, about the cutting of trees, SubhanAllah.
The thing that I'm trying to say is that if we put that aside, and we claim that this person is asking out of a true sincerity to understand this issue, we say that, yes, it is a general rule that the Muslims did not use to cut the trees in the time before. And this is why the Hadith that we mentioned are proof that that was the case, because someone might say, Well, how do we know how can we believe that? This is just
vain talk that you are speaking of
the example of how the Companions even differ amongst each other, when they started cutting down the trees because they were not used to it. It's a practical implementation. But in general, it is also, this is why the the scholars of Islam took from this, that it is permissible to cut down the trees for a worldly benefit
for the case of disgracing the enemy, and this is another route and it is accepted. And no one can argue with that displacing the enemy in such a situation.
performing such an act to describe the enemy is a lawful act or something else.
it does not go beyond the limits of Islam.
No mutilation of bodies prohibited in Islam, disgracing the enemy does not validate or justify something prohibited in the first place. Okay, but this was part of their character, the character of the Muslims and there are rules that they wouldn't just cut trees and burn trees and so on. Okay for the for the sake of
just for the sake of cutting them and so on. But this is where Allah azza wa jal introduced the rule that it is permissible to do so,
for that reason for disgracing the enemy.
So you see what I'm saying? It's permissible for a reason for a cause.
Otherwise, the goal does not justify the means this is the way the Jews nothing's gonna justify the means. And this, this we will keep saying over and over. Yes, you may have a noble goal, but you have to reach that noble goal
with the noble means and the right means. And this is why when you look at Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and the way he spread the Dawa.
Did he do it? This he considered this principle? The goal is justify the means as he did you know what he would have done? He would have accepted the offer of the cafe to make him king over all
right, they came to him and they offered him everything they said we'll give you whatever you want leave this religion
you want women will give you the most beautiful women Subhanallah as if this is what he wants money will make you the richest. If you're sick look at
the implicit insult if you're sick and in other words, devils have possessed you with this religion that you are proselytizing with
then we will give you the and bring you the best doctors and if you want to be a king over us we will make you a king over the prophets Allah Salam might have said
with the golden mind once I am the ruler and I have dominated hope I will spend
but no, the gold does not justify the means.
So this is the idea but you see what I'm saying? I did not explain my
non believers who are not in my mind. Okay. Okay. Focusing on what the Muslim is
the cutting of trees.
Random destruction is prohibited in Islam. Definitely. And
if there is a religion, which gives value to the human soul, this religion as a last podcast doesn't
Enough since Oh facades and fill up for me message me.
for this reason, because it's the continuation of a line of verses. Allah azza wa jal revealed to,
to the children of Israel, the Jews, that whoever kills a soul unjustly.
In other words, without
due cause for blood money, okay, in other words, a soul for a soul. Okay, just like an iPhone. So if it wasn't for that case, in the case of blood money,
or the soul that was killed was not a corrupt one, or one that corrupted in the land. Then, killing that soul is like killing all of humanity. Killing one soul is like killing all of humans. And if you win, like you give life to one soul, it's like giving life to all of humanity. This is the value of innocence, human soul in Islam, be it Muslim or not.
so random destruction, and just the killing of innocents, even though they may be disbelievers. You can just kill
random Islam does not justify this. And at the same time, what we see Unfortunately, nowadays, the hands of some of the
enthusiastic youth, those are not acting by the the precepts of Islam. Many of many of the times there are many Muslims losing their lives.
And for what reason for what costs no, this is not permitted, and you cannot make us with this. Of course not. On what basis do you do such a thing and it's what
It's more complicated than that, to just try to make a comparison between this and that. And this is clearly the burning of,
of trees and so on, mind you
if you look at the trees as what protected the Jews have been in Nabil as their forte as their protection, then you can make the comparison to the protection of the enemy. Of course, if it's a state of war, and you're fighting, you break down the protection. This is, this is probably as far as you can take it.
But otherwise, it also clarifies and makes clear, the rule that it is permissible to disgrace the enemy, in whatever form as long as it is permissible. In one situation. Prophet Muhammad wa salam slaughtered
the sum of the sheep and the camels that belong to the enemy. For what reason for this for disgracing the enemy, what is called for irritating the disbelievers.
But it was something permissible in the first place. You see what I'm saying?
But the goals do not justify them.
