I mean, a lot of fun to work with me on so you didn't say well
maybe you know have you been on
on this roof is
in the beginning
we praise the Lord meetings and prayers and blessings upon the seal of the prophets, Beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam family righteous companions and all those that follow them with the right guidance.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us knowledge, to benefit us from that knowledge and to make that knowledge an argument for us and not against us on the Day of Judgment and to make the Quran and intercessor on our part another
judgment. And I asked the last panel, who brought us here together today in this Masjid to bring us together and the first of paradise with Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, his noble family and writers companions and all those that follow them.
Brothers and sisters we continue with the seed and we finished By Allah's grace, we finished Surah Al DUA and we will begin inshallah Today saw that
referring to the hypocrites
when we speak about the virtue of the surah
we said that it was the sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam to recite Surah, Juma and Surah.
right after each other,
the first car he would recite one of them while the second one they would recite.
Seemingly the wisdom behind that is that when he is reciting so often do Matsuura consumers full of what it's full of
enticement for the believers to do good, and to attend Friday, and to beware of the dust, which is surely to come to them. So it is speech that is directed
at the believers. And then here's sort of the theme, because people who are praying with him are believers.
the hypocrites are also attending final prayer, of course,
Yes, it was a sunnah, that he would recite Surah Tangela on the first record, and sort of the second. And as he has both groups praying with him, the first sort of seems to be speech to the believers. And the second one is a speech of warning to the hypocrites who are praying with him sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
when we talk about the order of Soros, Emmanuel
wrote his book, commenting on the wisdom behind the order of the chapters, as well as the verses within the chapters, he said, that notice how
Allah subhanaw taala started off by warning us of being allies to the disbelievers, you will
be aware of taking the enemies of Allah subhanaw taala as allies.
And then in sort of,
he told us about one of the characters characteristics of hypocrisy so that we can avoid it. Yeah, you are Lavina Allen limita coluna.
he spoke to the believers and he reminded them of their obligations, and
the importance of attending Friday and so on. And then in the Surah. He is speaking specifically to the hypocrites. Also as a warning to the believers. Beware of the hypocrites beware of their characteristics, as they will be outlined in this chapter.
Allah subhanaw taala says
one long way,
one long way
aka the moon, when the hypocrites come to you,
they say, We testify that You are the messenger of Allah. And Allah knows that you are His messenger. And Allah testifies that the hypocrites are liars. My dear brothers and sisters, hypocrisy is a debilitating disease. And it is a disease that Allah subhanaw taala has tested.
The followers of the religion of Allah subhanaw taala, with
replete at the time of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam himself. In fact, as the scholars of Islam points out,
hypocrisy will find its way and will predominate at the times when Islam is at its peak at the times of strength. And this is why I repeat, as you see Islam now rising, beware, hypocrites are also forming their groups, hypocrites are coming out.
And it's gonna be hard to distinguish them. And it's going sometimes to be hard to distinguish who really wants things that are good for this religion and this will not, and who is working to destroy it, but from the inside.
And this is the danger. This is the danger of hypocrisy. And this is why they aren't the worst of the disbelievers possible, because the disbelievers made their position clear, but the hypocrites, the hypocrites lied. They cheated the Muslims, and they tried to destroy them from inside.
They acted as they pretended as if they prayed. And as if they cared about the Muslims, as if they cared about the blood of the Muslims being said, and they cared about the religion and its followers, and the people be at peace and so on. No, they don't desire any of this. Beware. And
we always have to scrutinize what is being sent. And we have to know
if this is a person who really wants good for you and Islam or otherwise, they will only increase from now on the philosophy to Allah wills because Islam is coming back and coming back to its religion. These people will now come up and they see. See part of it is that Islam is the fastest growing religion. This bothers hypocrites. People who claim to be Muslim and followers of Islam in front of you, they tell you, this religion is beautiful.
And this religion is the truth and behind you they go to the disbelievers they insult this religion and they
accuse it of being anachronistic. It's a religion that belongs 14th centuries back. What are we applying the rules that no man in the desert learns, Allah, Allah wa salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad was,
this is the way things speak. They have two phases. And that's why Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said that the worst of men is the one who has two faces. He comes to you with one face and he goes to others with another, this disease of hypocrisy.
When we speak about hypocrisy, we're speaking about people
who show you that they are believers. But deep down they aren't disbelievers.
Here in this dunya you cannot judge them that way. In other words, you cannot treat them necessarily as a disbeliever.
But in an era, their abode, and their
final place and rank is with the kofod in fact, it is even lower because Allah subhanaw taala says about
Duncan as funny Mennonites. The hypocrites are in the lowest level of hellfire
as brothers and sisters. Paradise has levels as we spoke before Hellfire has levels also but levels going down. They are in the lowest level of hellfire Well, I had a
that when the
hypocrites come to you they say, We testify that You are the messenger of Allah. They come straight, they come with a straight face, and they say this to us, we testify that You are the messenger of Allah
knows that you are His messenger. Why did Allah interject with that statement? And Allah knows you.
Because in the next statement, he is going to testify that the hypocrites are liars,
but was able to say, they said, We testify You are the messenger of Allah.
In order not to be confused, that Allah is calling them liars
about the fact that he is the messenger of course he is the messenger of ALLAH. So he tells you Allah, Allah, Allah, and Allah knows you are His messenger. So he confirmed to you.
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon isn't the Messenger of Allah, Allah.
Allah testifies that the hypocrites are liars.
But they testified that he is the messenger of Allah. So how are they liars?
How are they?
They don't say it. They don't mean it. They're not sincere about it. They don't believe it. Right? So
they're lying is not in there saying You are the messenger of Allah. Yes, he is the messenger of Allah. Nothing can change or pollute or dilute the truth.
But they are lying in that they testify.
It's coming close to taking an oath.
We testify that you are the Messenger of Allah, this is where they are liars. You are liars in your testimony, because you don't believe in
it, but he is the messenger of Allah. Nothing. As the heavens salt of the earth continues that he is the messenger of Allah. And Allah subhanaw taala is the one who confirmed this will
lead us through
notice they said
when you scrutinize the grammar, next, is a tool of confirmation we testify. Testify is usually in courts.
This is that some kids in Arabic grammar, this is a tool for confirming
this lab is
this lab is taking an oath for swearing, three ways of confirming this.
Full of confirmation that our lawyers, Allah subhanaw taala tells you
and this is why it is Hanifa.
or less HUD is a tool for taking an oath, a way of taking an oath, because scholars debate it, when does this year mean the sports actually
So in other words, if I say something,
how is it?
A mean, an actual, if I just say something such as? Without swearing? It's not the I mean, it's nothing.
Why is this important? Because
based on that, I swear to something and I take an oath to something and it is it turns out it is not correct. Or I swore to do something and I didn't.
Something entails that which is the cathodic I have to experience.
So someone may come and ask, I promised that I would do this and this and this and I didn't do I have to explain.
The scholar has to find out if indeed this applies for him or not. And he will ask him what did you say specifically word for word. If there is there's no tool picking
that he didn't take an oath he doesn't have to experience. You see what I'm saying? But if he said
or will lie, right?
as Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him used to take oaths and so on, when you swear by Allah
or you swear by
one of his attributes, then you have to explain why you didn't do what you swore to. So other honey for
claims that mesh has or
is in the taking. And that someone says
something something, this is an oath,
they promised to do something and they didn't say up to experience. And this
quickly, when we speak about sports, there are three types. And the immediate one,
which is taking an oath, and it is something correct.
when I ask, and this is swearing by something which is alive, like this.
And the reason it's called a horse is because most meaning that if
it's enforcement dips, dips, you were lips, you into hellfire.
When you swear by Allah, about something which is alive, that's why when you swear by something which is alive, there's no explanation for them.
There's no explanation for it. And the most popular opinion of scholars, but when you take, take an oath of something you want to do, and you don't, that's when you expect, right. But when you are
swearing by something, and that something is not true, it is a lie. In actuality, this is a yumminess you cannot experience for them. The third one is your new level,
the also level
and I shut up describes that as
you know, regular statements that we make such as Wallahi.
You know, by Allah this, I asked you really well. Yes, this is not an oath. You see what I'm saying? This is
this is level. It's different from taking an oath where you say I swear by Allah doesn't
mean level yet of course, of course. It's just that there's no explanation based on that. This is the type of everyday talk where you, you save a lot.
You see what I'm saying? So
this is one of the ways to take an oath.
Rasool Allah, Allah
rasool Allah, Allah, Allah knows, you are His messenger, Allah.
And Allah testifies, notice who is testifying, Allah is testifying, is there any greater testimonials of Allah subhanaw taala, known as in the Quran, shaking the law, and the hula is ilaha illa. Allah Himself testified that there is no God worthy of worship, but
Allah Himself is there a greater testimonial than Allah, and especially about himself, who can testify about Allah better than Allah subhanaw taala himself is saying
that there is no God worthy of worship, when melodica will earn me a compliment.
So this is the greatest testimony and it is the testimony of
the old knowledgeable, the one who sees everything he is telling you in 15 and,
indeed, the hypocrites are liars.
This sort of this that this we're about, they are liars, he is the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam but you are liars about testify that he is the messenger of Allah.
yes, there sure is, because when you don't take an oath, there's no explanation for that.
The expiation because
this is for the people. And that's only when you take an oath that you have to perform the expansion.
There are many other questions related we'll take it until after the
after we're finished.
Tina can be moved, that they are what they are liars. We know that Allah Prophet Muhammad
told us some of the characteristics of the hypocrites and one of them is this
that what when they speak they lie What are the other two?
The prime promise is a
way that Tolman a has got a philosophy and if he
He is entrusted with a trust, he betrays the trust. There is a fourth one and another narration
what is a half of our Fajr?
he quarrels with someone, or he fights with someone, he makes it something really huge and he screams and he talks about it and he spreads it and so on.
He doesn't have the ability of calming it down, or forgiving, or something else. And this is this We shouldn't be careful about.
Yes, I wouldn't mention Charlotte
they have taken the oath as a cover. So they averted
people from the way of Allah. Indeed, it was evil that they were doing
the hypocrites are liars. What did they do? As part of this reputation of lying, they took their oath as a cover
also means protection, more than cover and this is why even the shields
linguistically is described as
They took their horse as a protection as a protection from
from being exposed. Exactly.
That's why they came in they said to Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.
Right. What else? Not only being exposed.
They're afraid of being in the ranks of the firm.
And therefore deserving what the kuffar getting from the believers in the battles
either of killing or imprisonment, right. And so they are afraid of this. So they are protecting themselves and their wealth, as Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said, when you say that is a lot, you protected yourself from you, You protected your wealth and your blood. So they were protecting themselves from this, because otherwise, their rancor would become evidence. They wouldn't be classified in the rest of the kuffar and therefore they would deserve what I'm getting.
So they protected themselves
from this, hello, amen. John, not only that, many times.
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was made aware by the illogical Allah.
This hypocrites are insulting you behind your back or saying things about you. So Allah's path Allah made him aware, and when he summoned them,
they started swearing by a monk. Well lucky, we didn't say
we didn't say any of this, this is not correct, this is not true and so on.
They took their oath as a protection
for themselves and for their families and so on. Notice also
that part of their characteristics is that they constantly pick
their own swearing, but this is not the characteristic of the believer. Oh was swearing by Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala
recommended his his speaking negatively about
the merchants who advertise their merchandise with what with lice and hellephant Kevin, how
to swim i This is the best one but you cannot find anything like this. The the whole soak and so on and they might be lying. This is
this will be severely punished by Allah subhanaw taala
they are constantly taking off. Why do they always take oaths also? Because they're afraid brothers and sisters. You have to understand that they are living amongst the believers. They are literally on their toes constantly
they would be exposed. Afraid that alone exposes them with verses from the Quran. And here is the homework which tells us that
that they were afraid
If you've been exposed by the Quran
you have to find
the verse that tells us they're afraid of being exposed by the Quran
specifically, they are afraid of being exposed by the
homework and challah for next time.
logic is one thing. But arrogance is another
arrogance in their heart is
taking over that logic. It's dominating that lights, it's burning that logic, this arrogance they had in their hearts.
So they were always swearing, and they're always thinking, and therefore
part of their apprehension of living in the Muslim society and around the Muslims, and knowing that the Muslims
do a lot of stuff. They know who they are, and who those hypocrites may be. So they're always on their toes, and they're always swearing.
And the person who's square See, this is why the Quran is Pamela. It's telling you even about
when you see someone constantly swearing,
it must mean they're afraid of you finding something else about them. That means they are insecure about something that constantly like it means they fear that you don't believe.
And as you don't believe that they'll keep swearing in order to confirm to you that we are indeed believers, we love Allah and His messenger, we are going out with you and so on.
So they were constantly swearing by Allah subhanaw taala. And part of the punishment for them is that they are the only they have
demeaned this discourse by Allah, Allah is not something small. And this is why
it is, if you took an oath, an official vote, and you don't fulfill it, you have to explain it for it. It's serious. If you, God forbid, take an oath by Allah about a lie. This line will dip you in the hellfire. It's serious, taking an oath by Allah is not something simple. And here I remind myself a new brothers and sisters, you can only swear by Allah.
Number one, don't swear too much this is not of the character of a Muslim. Number two, you can only swear by Allah swearing by other than Allah is shaped when
Allah alone can take off by the heavens and the earth, and the sun and the moon, and so on. But not you and me. He takes an oath why whatever he wants, because he's the king, and everything belongs to him, you and I can only take an oath by Allah subhanaw taala or one of his attributes,
such as swearing by a man or by one of his names or something of that nature.
But nowadays, subhanAllah people are swearing by everything.
Swearing by your life, swearing by their children, by the love of their children, and just all kinds of things it is not allowed.
By the Quran is
scholars different cultures. Some scholars said if you are swearing by the Quran, not the book itself. You're swearing by the word of Allah the speech of Allah. This is like swearing by
swearing by the speech of Allah. Because
right, then who better?
To answer me, Linda, what was the result of taking these off as a protection for themselves? They averted people from the way of Allah and who is worse than the one who fabricates things or concoct lies against Allah subhanaw taala or
live to the people above the religion? For what in order to avert people from the way of Allah Subhana Allah azza wa jal mentioned those people, many times, people who are averting from the way of Allah, imagine a person
God forbid they be a Muslim. Is that character, averting multiples of Muslims from the religion just because they are
have an example of the religion
holding all of their sins on their backs, because they were a reason in avoiding people from serious when
we seek to live the religion in our life, we need to be a good example. Brothers and sisters otherwise, if you have hurt people, you will be taking the sins and malarkey. We don't need any more sins on our shoulders.
They used to take these holes, they averted people from the weight of Allah subhanaw taala. Part of that was because they did not worship and obey like the believers did. But yet many of the Muslims are dwindled by them.
In other words, they had been tricked. Not everyone knows this is a hypocrite, and this is not the hypocrites were were were marvelous at proving their belief.
Not like you and me. They used to pray in JAMA, they used to come and pray in congregation. They didn't leave the the the the Salah, and this is because they lived at a time where the companions were at such a level of piety and religiosity that they had to be somewhat close. So you have to pray five times in the masjid otherwise, they will doubt you are hypocrites. The Companions used to doubt
each other as they miss, maybe a shot
twice in a row. The person wasn't traveling, they were afraid for that other person didn't believe it.
They're afraid for what they're afraid that maybe they became a hypocrite. So the hypocrites had to come up to this level. So they were at a very high level of apparent religiosity to prove to them that we are indeed Muslim, so many of the Muslims
didn't know who they were. And this is why say nominally Allah has when to say nothing Nathan
is the only one who knew the numbers of hypocrites and who they were, of course, after Prophet Muhammad.
On the authority of Allah azza wa jal, there was no one else can say a lot.
And he told for those
not even follow the other components, this is part of the wisdom of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him also. Each companion a few scrutinize their life, each companion had a specific role. And Prophet Muhammad peace be upon praise him in a certain way.
I mean, he is the one who holds this secret of Prophet Muhammad is saying Now, part of the Allah
comes to say, and he says, By Allah, and I counted as one of the hippo
and you and I, when we speak about this, we say no, when are you saying hypocrites, mashallah you pray five times a day.
And you you pass and you saw it says now ALLAH, ALLAH
fears hypocrisy for himself, he says to save by Allah, Allah, todos means one of this. This is the extent to which they deprecated themselves. They look down upon themselves, this is the extent to which they feared that maybe they would be in the ranks of those, c'est la vie for the last exonerated, says no. And then he said to him, and I will not
say the same about anybody else. I won't tell anyone else other than you. They used to feel hypocrisy for themselves.
reports that he witnessed 30 of the companions of Prophet
they all fear hypocrisy for themselves.
30 of the companions he said, I witness 30 of the competitors. They all feel hypocrisy for themselves, they feel that they may be off the hypocrites May Allah
protect us from that and this is why brothers and sisters
don't look down upon this issue.
This issue of self deprecation is very important.
Looking down upon oneself, and look looking down upon one what one has given to Allah subhanaw taala actually, this is a way to move forward.
It should not be a tool of despair.
This should be an encouragement to move forward. It should
kill the the fear of Allah subhanaw taala in our hearts, which shouldn't kill
Based on that fear of Allah subhanaw taala. This fact that the Hindi companions used to feel hypocrisy for themselves, this made them work harder.
make them sit down, it makes them work harder. And it made them look down upon what they've told us. So they kept on increasing the deeds, trying to come close to Allah subhanaw taala, and do more worship and gain more knowledge, and so on.
indeed it was evil
that they were doing or what they were doing. That's what they were doing, which was averting people from the way of Allah subhanaw taala. By making these false promises, and oaths, and thoughts, and at the same time, maybe casting doubts in the hearts of Muslims, this was
part and parcel of
the way that they used to dissuade people from the religion.
They come to you and tell you, this religion is beautiful, it calls to good, Allah is the most merciful, and so on beautiful things. But then we start picking you
can be right.
doesn't make sense.
To start hearing those things, we that we put a big question mark,
and forget about what they said, which was all nice and beautiful.
The fact that the last data recorded for you, just because nowadays, brothers and sisters, we are in the age of diplomacy. So everything you hear is beautiful. President Bush praises Islam, less than right, the religion of peace. And it's the religion of
known enemies to Allah and his
religion in front of you, of diplomacy.
That's what a foreign minister is for, in order to say something, which is very difficult to say, usually, to say it in a nice way, and in a way that doesn't hurt the other party. So now with this, this is what you will hear. Rarely will you hear something so blatant.
Unless, of course,
that person doesn't have diplomacy, or their enmity has come up so much, that even in front of you, and in this age of democracy and diplomacy, they just come out and say right straight to your face.
What is hidden in the hearts is much greater and much more severe in the home setting.
Than it can be
all over him.
That is because they believe, and then they disbelief. So their hearts were sealed over and they do not understand.
So they believe, what does this mean?
mentions this could be one of two.
Either that it was real belief.
And then they posted it and they disbelieved or it is
not real belief. But it is similar to these lies that they were telling where they testify that is the messenger of Allah. In other words, they claim belief and they show belief, but in reality, they are liars and they are hypocrites.
If it is real belief
that might have applied to Allah, Allah, to some hypocrites,
who died as hypocrites.
Who really sincerely believed in the beginning.
But with the work there brother hypocrites,
dissuading them from the religion, reminding them of nationalism, and tribalism. And all this shows me garbage.
They took them away from the religion. How can you relieve the religion of your forefathers? This is what you're gonna do to
the end of your life and you're gonna follow this man as the evil entourage of Abu Talib did on his deathbed.
So maybe some of the hypocrites who died as hypocrites in the beginning maybe they really believed. But then their evil entourage took them back into
And they continued with hypocrisy
hypocrisy for them was a way of life. Living in Medina, they could not specialist Islam because they couldn't
come out overtly with their rancor towards Islam or their disbelief. And so they took the way of hypocrisy.
As we said, it could be metaphorical. That is a fact that they claim and they show the nice, but in reality in their hearts, they are disbelievers of the harbor, such great enmity towards Islam and Muslims. The result of that is much more dangerous for
him for whom
may have tested something of faith
or you'll have some belief in your heart and some other doubts. And then you chose the doubts and you put it over your belief in Allah subhanaw taala wouldn't do deserve for this for
him. At that point. Their hearts were sealed. And this is the most dangerous thing, brothers and sisters that Allah subhanaw taala protect our hearts from that. And Allah subhanaw taala as we know in the Hadith, Allah subhanaw taala switches the hearts he is the one who overturns the hearts as he pleases May Allah azza wa jal make our heart firm on this religion. And don't say it is not for me to say this, your beloved Muhammad is the one who used to say is that he is the messenger of Allah.
Allah Denecke you whoever turns the hearts make our hearts firm on this religion. Allah subhanaw taala seals someone's heart, there is no way of giving any light into that heart again. And it is similar similar to the Quran.
Mechanics, this one is a sealant. It means that when people continue to sin, sin after sin,
as the Hadith the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says that a black spot
is played from the heart.
So those black spots continue to multiply.
And then they cover the heart completely. This is a love.
This love is the sealant. After that, you can no longer bring light to that heart, it's filled with
upon sealing the heart, life cannot come in, it can no longer distinguish between
what is good and what is evil.
It's all gone. At that point the heart is sealed well.
Here he says.
The hearts and
the hearts of the Jews were sealed because they're taking the calf and worshiping the calf and so on. For
him for whom
and they do not understand
they do not understand meaning what?
Understand when the Quran uses that word. It's very general. Allah subhanaw taala is telling you that this is a general understanding. It's not just a mental understanding. When you notice the word fit, we have this for homework before you find the most popular, apply that in the Quran. Also for the heart
applies to the heart I love talking about jurisprudence anymore. I'm talking about the general meaning of fit.
You know that I am speaking about
They have hearts with which they do not understand. So Allah is attributing understanding to the heart. Yes. The heart has the ultimate understanding. What do you say about some of the world's geniuses who claimed the world came about by chance?
He's a genius in one way, but he's ludicrously in another. His heart doesn't understand his brain realize a certain physical phenomenon, but his heart does not understand and does not see the Supreme Being behind
all of these miracles and letters Allah subhanaw taala. So the heart understands. When we talk about understanding of the heart, we talk about fear of Allah subhanaw taala. That's why many scholars will never ask about about knowledge. They said Hashem, Hashem is knowledge.
this is the greatest moment what the annual was someone who had this filled
with Quran and Sunnah and it has no reality in their life.
First understanding that, what is the good of knowledge that is hidden
knowledge that leads to fear and fear of Allah, this is true knowledge in
the true people of knowledge are people who fear Allah subhanho wa taala. So
after the hearts are sealed, they will no longer come to understand, meaning they will no longer distinguish between good or evil, they will no longer understand they will no longer have a chance of coming to Belize. And this is a result of what they believed. And then they disbelieve in sorta, he repeated it several times, right? What does
it mean, to make a photo?
Right, the ones who believe then this believe them believed and disbelief was the been the novella.
This is believing and then this believing they are
they are continuing to waver between this
belief and disbelief back and forth. There's no
There's no certainty. There's no certainty.
And this is required.
I mean, there's no certainty, right? They're always going back and forth. They're always fluctuating, they're fickle. They don't have a stable position. He doesn't give you a stable person, he doesn't have a stable belief. He's always going back and forth.
And a true believer is not like the sense
that they are in their doubts, and they are constantly fluctuating and wavering and so on,
that it can be
found here brothers and sisters, let us
stop for a minute
and discuss the issue of hypocrisy. Scholars divided hypocrisy into two components, hypocrisy of belief, and this is true genuine hypocrisy, and this is the only hypocrisy which casts
that person in hellfire forever
then there is this is a level of difficulty.
Then there is
allows us and protect us. And this involves all of the other
characteristics that are mentioned about the hypocrites.
As we said, lying, not keeping one's promises
Not having a sincere intention for jihad, as in the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
that whoever does not have a serious intention for not
traveling the fact
that he will have a portion of hypocrisy and not full hypocrisy, right? This is the hypocrisy of needs, your your
huddle, as we discussed, why do you say what you do not lose? This is also part of hypocrisy of this, the hypocrisy of leads is very, very general. And it involves
having any of the common traits of the hypocrites
in one sense.
Allah azza wa jal protect us from that and this is very common.
And this is all over. And that's why we ask Allah azza wa jal to purify our hearts of hypocrisy, the very serious disease, brothers and sisters
and Prophet Muhammad peace be upon himself used to seek refuge in Allah from hypocrisy. When he says
Allah Muhammad Ali
is seeking refuge from hypocrisy.
A new ally, when someone says, oh, no, I'm far from hypocrisy. No, we need to remind each other we should always be in doubt. Doubt yourself. Scholars say
good of others. And doubt yourself.
This is self deprecation again. Put yourself down. lift yourself up. Why? Because you pray two units of theory in five minutes. You settle Islam No. Be modest.
The journey to Allah is Allah.
scholar used to sleep they used to sleep for three hours they were writing and now
And, and reading and recite the Quran and worshiping Allah. What are you talking about?
Yes, if someone says I dare hypocrisy for myself,
don't go and
comfort. No, this is good. This self deprecation is this In sha Allah should be a way to form it for them.
How do you know
to say that?
when he says
not a whole lot of humble as a hypocrite, he's talking about himself.
He says we will mirror was Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He reminds us of paradise and hellfire. And we remember much and you know, our hearts become humble and and then when we leave him, we go back to our families. And we play and we enjoy ourselves. Every one of us is doing this. We go back to our home and we play with our family and children. And we forget much by Allah, I asked you, what did Satan?
Did he say no, this is not hypocrisy, or no rather, this is okay. He says Wallahi I find the same thing in myself. Let's go through and listen to our philosophy the last
there doubting themselves, they want to know. They want to be messengers. And he comforted them. And he said
there's time for this and this time for that in the long Hadith I was summarizing. So
beware of the hypocrisy of deeds.
And ask Allah subhanaw taala and seek refuge in Allah subhanaw taala. From always,
always have this.
Like we spoke before the self accountability holding oneself self accountable to be further away from this.
the reason for revelation for this surah
is an incident that happened. The power of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon
when the leader of the hypocrites embarrass Abdullah
is the leader. He's the worst of the worst.
Though he claims to be. He claims to love Islam
to the extent in addition, in his spirit, he mentioned he used to stand up before Friday, before the public this will put him give his hope. And he would speak to people and he would say, oh people listen to him. He is the Messenger of Allah, He came to God to the truth and so on. Allah Abdullah, he is he hates the messenger he hates Islam is trying to destroy. This is the expense of hypocrisy that he got.
Of course, hypocrisy started what?
In Mecca, Medina, Medina, we said that the reason for hypocrisy and the planning is when Islam becomes strong. Islam was weak and oppressed
until they migrated after the Battle of
Right, they have criteria where Allah distinguished between the good and evil.
At that point, I'm
lost all hope
of getting the crown that he saw.
Why did he hit the missing philosophy?
Because he took he took his disease power.
And a lot of them was the leader of
the two tribes and elsewhere.
He was accepted by both tribes as the best and the
most deserving of being the ruler in Medina. And they were preparing his crown.
And then Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him landed in El Medina. And this dream of his disappeared that
There you go again.
This is from religion.
Welcome against the religion, the result of one
measly material interests.
The same was Abdullah
the same was twice
could have believed in the property. Many of the movie was the
he confessed it to his confidant
They don't even matter of Allah, but they're afraid for their money,
for their reputation for their
and for their place in society.
And it's the same for the one.
This is when he hits about Allah, that he lost the car, and he is no longer the ruler, and Allah subhanaw taala.
Good to the unfound and that he sent to them the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam, so he was about to be home.
So after the Battle of weather, he lost all hope. And he said to himself, the only solution is to
show the, to show belief
and to hide disbelief,
to protect himself, and to protect the people around, and there are many who followed him and so on. And so this was the beginning of your focus is after the battle.
In some cases, Prophet Muhammad in one narration, and this is shortly after
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him came to a group of the top.
And he was writing, obviously, his donkey or his horse.
And came on the close, I'm delighted.
He said to him,
to look at the disrespect of Prophet Muhammad, please don't come to our gathering. And
of course, the sitting there said no, come to our gatherings or messenger of Allah come to our gatherings.
Um, the law doesn't obey.
This incident for which the revelation of the surah occurred, the incident happened in the six year history.
I'm gonna ask you about this next time, in the sixth year hingedly, after which was
six year history, close after.
Because what Benning was
also known as Medici.
This happened in the 60s.
It was a short Bible, according to many scholars of seal. After that,
there was a shortage of water.
Then there was a small dispute between a mohawk and I'm sorry, about the water
litterateur translate for you quickly.
The narration sort of in the Zulu, for this one, is a little bit long
to following this
this is narrated on the authority of saints,
who was at the time a youth.
He said, We went out, we fought with the Messenger of Allah Salam in this battle. And there were people with us from the nomads and we were going to drink from the water.
The nomads sometimes would be this to the water. So in this specific situation, he went this Nomad and he filled his containers with water. And then he would make like a small fork around himself with rocks in order to save the water for himself
then a person from the unfollow kin, and he left his animal loose, and it went in and drank from the that one
didn't allow it to and then he took
after a rock was removed and the water started flowing, then the lobby took a piece of wood or something and he hit the the folly on his head. Following that, the Ansari
is close to all of the love and
so he went up the love and obey. And he told them about that and they eventually became angry. And he said upon that do not
those who are with the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, he was in the messenger
and he's speaking about the
and Abdullah disobey and many of the other hypocrites and even disbelievers, they hated the fact that Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was close to the week and the downtrodden. And then he's asking them to come to the religion and they are the Ashraf they are the leaders and the chiefs and so on. So he's saying those turned on these people. And then he said to them, if you if we go back to the Medina, then the regional as the honorable one will expel the disgraced one.
And Allah was disgraced.
They did not come on says I was with my uncle.
And his, his referring here to South Florida, who is not actually his uncle, but he's referring to him as Uncle because he was the leader of the tribe.
He said, I was with my uncle, I was writing with my uncle, and I heard
what he said. And he went and he told, of course, the messenger of allah sallallahu, then
the Messenger of Allah Subhan, Allah, as usual.
They took their oath as protection, Allahu Allah, that is referring to this.
Specifically, and it also applies in general, as we said, in the known rule, which is what concerning the generality of the verses of Quran? In the popular opinion of scholars, what is the rule
about the generality of verses, that though verses may have been revealed for a specific purpose,
but they are general.
They are warming woman lesson learned that
we extract wisdom, by the generality of the expression used in the Quran, not by the specificity of the reason of Revelation. So though it may be referring to Abdullah, taking his oath as a protection and applies in general to all hypocrites who do so. So he
took calls on phone and he swore that he didn't say that, and upon that the message of lupski believed in. And as some of the companions told him, they have an upcoming to use, maybe he didn't hear correct.
Then my uncle side of Nevada went to him they did not come. And he said to him,
What did you seek, so that the muscle of Allah, Allah would become angry with you like this, and the irony, that you came out in the end, as a liar, and the Muslims didn't believe you and so on. And then they did not consent. I was in a state of complete depression.
He had every right after what happened.
Then he says, One day I was walking with the messenger philosophy. And then he came to me and he
tapped my ear. Maybe he flicked his ear or something.
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is out of this world, that he has the full personality He is joking around when the youth so he came up to his ear, and he smiles in his face, these are the outcome says Wallah, he, I was left with place I would look for sick this incident for the whole day. In other words, Johnny, he loves the fact that the Prophet came to him like listen to them in this way, of course, after the distress and the depression, that he was in
some kind of a tsunami and the LIBOR be had dunya. Then, the next morning, the message philosophy, well to say them, and recited
in its entirety, and told him Allah has exonerated you and confirmed
what you said.
And there are other narrations, there's another narration, which shows that the dispute happened slightly differently, but the meaning is essentially the same. And the fact that
said what he said, and they said other things in the Sierra, as mentioned other things, such as when he said that, you know, he was telling the people around him, that this is what happened as a result of you and me. This is what happens when you feed your dog and you you make him fat, and then he comes and hits you is speaking about the Muslims.
Speaking about the Muslim ummah, that basically we were the people here. We supported them until they became what they became and now
I came back into this was and this is all part of the hypocrisy and the enmity that he has towards the Muslims, how much time do we have
that is, I will not finish the next time. So I will not have time.
But what I want to direct your attention to
is that we live in a time where Islam
is slowly gaining power, by the principal was providing
the most can unless coming back to its religion.
Hypocrisy is really
don't say hypocrisy belongs on 14th centuries ago.
Today, and the very dangerous and this is one of the most dangerous
movements and in find movements.
And this is why you find
speaking about hypocrisy, he says, The Quran is so replete with versus speaking about hypocrisy.
It's almost as if we are speaking about Mexicans, of course, specifically in the Lebanese chapters.
In almost every chapter, you will find a lot of those who spoke about the hypocrisy in one way or another.
They all mentioned hypocrites, so much for
all of it against the hypocrites.
If you analyze the first few verses of
the first three or four are concerning the believers, the next two are concerning this believers, and the next
13 verses are all about hypocrisy.
Four and two for belief and disbelief. And the rest is about hypocrisy. It shows you the last part of the holla is directing our attention to the disastrous pneus of hypocrisy and the hypocrisy. It's a real
disease. It's a reality, it will become a reality more and more now. Beware of people who say
like to speak about the scholars of Islam and the to the people who come to the seminar many like that. And you're starting to hear this a lot. You read it in the papers, you hear it on the news, people saying this people speaking about Islam and speaking about jihad. And so now we know want to pollute Islam, by speaking about by basically relating it to politics and so on. To completely cancel politics out of Islam. They want to make Islam something in the masjid only you come you pray when
you go out, don't get involved in politics. Don't speak about Jihad don't speak about the pressure thing about any of that.
Nowadays, you're starting to hear this a lot. We don't want to pollute the religion. When does religion have to do with this in this separation of church and state, you remember that? This is what they want to also hear. They want to separate religion, they want to separate it from the state. They don't want religion as a way of life. They want it as
a narrow ideology you keep in the masjid. You don't apply it to anything else. Beware of people who speak about the scholars.
People who claim they love the religion, and there are Muslims and so on. And then all they do back and forth in their articles in the newspapers, and sometimes outright speech on television. They are just canceling one scholar after another for you.
put a question mark immediately, if the scholars are the ones who are corrupt.
The ones who are calling to Allah are the ones who are and are the ones who are far away from the lowest profile and they don't understand the religion who understands the religion, your mighty south.
it's real brothers and sisters.
it will only increase now. And may Allah subhanaw taala give us understanding and give us the ability to distinguish between the good and the evil and to give us an understanding of the Noble Quran and to purify our hearts of hypocrisy ALLAH forgive you.
