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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Gambia it was more serene Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Tabby Norman tabea home. B son Elijah Medina. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we thank him for everything that he has bestowed upon us. We asked him to grant us forgiveness, this beautiful Eve the month of Ramadan, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household all his companions. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them all and bless every single one of us. I mean, my brothers and sisters,

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

the kuffaar of Quraysh were quite foolish. They knew they were facing a truthful man, and honest man.

00:00:54--> 00:01:16

They knew that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not known for having attained a single life prior to the time he came with Prophethood. So in their hearts, they knew that this cannot be a lie. But because of the arrogance that they had, some of them decided to invoke Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:01:17--> 00:01:33

And instead of invoking Allah subhanho wa Taala with a good prayer, they decided to curse themselves in what way? So there is a narration by Imam Bukhari among Muslim Rahim Allah with de la by nsep Malika

00:01:35--> 00:01:48

he says Abu Jahan made the following dua and Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of it verse number 32 of solitude and fun. What is the Koran long in Ghana?

00:01:50--> 00:01:51

bombing the

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

mean as

00:01:58--> 00:02:09

we Tina biaza been Aleem. Allah says remember, when they called out to Allah, they said, Oh Allah, if this is the truth.

00:02:11--> 00:02:13

If this is really the truth from you,

00:02:14--> 00:02:57

then we want you to send down from the heavens, stones in terms of rain. We want you to send stones down upon us or we want you to serve us with a very painful punishment. Imagine they could have asked, they could have said that our life this is the truth send gold to us. If this is the truth, make us wealthy make us happy. grant us the best of this world in the next. But because of their arrogance, they said oh like this is the truth. punish us. Let's see. You know it reminds me of the little arrogant kids they say what you're gonna do. And then when you get one slap, then you keep quiet. May Allah Subhana Allah forgive us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep

00:02:57--> 00:03:28

understanding. We don't need to say what you're going to do. We'd rather say Oh Allah grant us goodness, oh Allah help us. So Allah subhanho wa Taala response and according to a narration mentioned by a tabari in history, the narration is that of sight even the Jumeirah Viola when he says the statement was uttered by another epinal Harris. So some of the scholars have said this statement was uttered by more than one person. They said, Oh Allah, if if really this is the truth, punishes you know, sin stones from heaven. So Allah says Womack and Allahu

00:03:33--> 00:03:45

Allah was never going to punish them while you were in the midst. Oh, Mohammed salatu salam, they expect us to throw stones from the top, but you are in their midst. We will not do that as Panama.

00:03:46--> 00:04:25

We learn from this that Allah subhanho wa Taala his love for a single person in our midst sometimes is what may result in the protection of the lot of us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us, may he strengthen us this is why it's good to have good company to be in good company to make sure that you are around people who are close to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that perhaps when Allah has mercy on them, we may feel that Missy as well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand this very deep ruling. And at the same time, the next part of the verse, Allah says Womack and Allah whom was the Bahama home, yes.

00:04:28--> 00:05:00

And the law was never going to punish them while they were repenting to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if someone repents to Allah, the punishment is held back, brothers and sisters in your life remember one thing you want goodness you want protection from punishment, you want protection from evil. One of the most powerful ways of achieving it is simply a stavola. Oh Allah I seek your forgiveness. I seek your forgiveness. Keep on seeking Allah forgiveness here. Allah says if you seek His forgiveness

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

He holds back the punishment. Imagine. So this is why get used to it. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not need is still far, he was spotless. He was perfect. He was sinless. But still he used to say Oh ALLAH forgive me up to 100 times a day with us we needed desperately, the whole month goes by, we have not yet said it 100 times. And if we do we say it without concentration. Brothers and sisters, it's about time, we took heed, and we turned to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Many of us complain about wealth, complain about happiness, but when did we turn to Allah? Allah says, If you ask Allah forgiveness, what would he do by punishing you? May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us ease then

00:05:42--> 00:05:43

Allah says,

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

Allah whom Allah

00:05:50--> 00:05:51

God

00:05:59--> 00:06:35

telling them that they would definitely be punished by Allah subhanho wa Taala when they block people from the masjid from a mystical harem, the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala so then indeed, nothing would stop Allah subhanho wa Taala from punishing them. May Allah protect us brothers and sisters, we need to understand these are the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We've said it in the past, the guests who are seated here are not my guests or yours, they are the guests of Allah subhanho wa Taala make them feel comfortable in this beautiful house of Allah and Allah will make you feel comfortable in the rest of your life. Understand that do not harm people in the house of

00:06:35--> 00:06:55

Allah Do not let off an offensive smell where they feel uncomfortable while they are the guests of Allah subhanho wa Taala although the verse is connected to a mosquito harem, and it's a much broader scale, but we can implement it in our own lives in the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala I hope and pray that we've actually learned a beautiful lesson from this.

00:06:56--> 00:07:39

Then if you take a look at acts of worship, my brothers and sisters, in Islam, the acts of worship are always come. They are always very, very relaxing. They are soothing, they are always very, very plugged in with Allah subhanho wa Taala full of spirituality. Look at Salah when you stand in Salah there is concentration, there is no screaming, shouting, yelling, clapping, listening, dancing, movement that is unacceptable and so on. You're not even allowed to bounce in Salah, you're supposed to stand extremely still as still as possible, and you're supposed to concentrate. However, when it comes to people of other faiths, take a look at their acts of worship. They wave their hands, they

00:07:39--> 00:08:18

jump from side to side, they scream and shout the whistle and they clap and They dance and they engage in lots of noise and they consider that acts of worship. I'm sure you may have witnessed people of other faiths be the Christians or Jewish or anyone else, how they have now worshipped Allah subhanho wa Taala, similar to the motion except the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we Allah subhanho wa Taala exposes them verse number 35 of sola to landfill, when the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu used to engage in tawaf, very quietly, very calm Hamas, Allah seldom used to engage in tawaf, and so on. These people used to come up, and they used to disturb the peace by

00:08:18--> 00:08:27

whistling and clapping and dancing and waving hands and doing all sorts and claiming that that is worship. So Allah says Womack and Isola

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

in

00:08:34--> 00:09:15

their acts of worship at muskego, Heron was nothing more than whistling and clapping. That was the act of worship. That is not an Islamic act of worship. Allah subhanho wa Taala is teaching us you become you be relaxed, you want to worship Allah, you don't need to jump and you don't need to dance and you don't need to scream, and you don't need to yell and you don't need to whistle and you don't need to clap. You need to engage exactly as Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam engaged and you will be involved in acts of worship. So let us learn a lesson what they do people of other faiths, they they actually blow the balloon of what they may term spirituality, but it is just an emotional

00:09:15--> 00:09:55

bubble. They get you onto a high you feel that you've worship your maker, but you haven't. At the end of the Sunday, you go home to a lot of alcohol and perhaps adultery and you're weak is depressing. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not let that happen to us. We worship Allah every single day, five times a day, regularly, calm, relaxing, soothing, no noise listening, clapping etc. That is not acts of worship. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand this beautiful lesson. So this narration is mentioned by Allah haidee narration of Rama rhodiola one also interceded nikka hill where he speaks about how they used to worship and how Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

beautiful verse.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

Then the seed of nicotine

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

makes mention of integration of a bus with your loved one. He says after the Battle of bedroom, there were quite a lot of the cronies of Quraysh, who passed who died who were actually killed off in the battle. They came to fight the Muslim in and they lost their lives from amongst them Abu Jamal and the likes some of their children. They went to Abu sufian, Abu sufian then became the leader. He was a wise man he was quite intelligent. He became the leader of Malaysia. And what happened is, they went to him when he was coming back with one of the caravans from a sham. And they told him Why don't you help us with all this wealth so that we can purchase weaponry, we can plan

00:10:34--> 00:10:37

and prepare and we can go and attack the muslimeen

00:10:38--> 00:11:11

so news got to the Muslim in to say these people are spending a lot of money in order to come and inflict harm on you. They are spending a lot of money in order to prepare to block the Muslims from practicing Islam and at the same time to harm and attack. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verses that calmed the hearts of the true believers verse number 36 of solitude and fall in Medina como una Amala homely also.

00:11:12--> 00:11:13

Sabine Illa

00:11:15--> 00:11:35

indeed the disbelievers or the kuffaar will continue spending their wealth in order to transgress or to block from the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala to harm the Muslim in to block the Muslim in to cause any form of damage to the Muslims to perhaps attack the Muslim in Allah says what is their job, their job is to spend money in that direction. First.

00:11:37--> 00:11:41

They will definitely spend their wealth let them spend it from

00:11:43--> 00:12:21

there, it will be a means of loss for them, they will lose, they will spend it and on top of that they will still lose some Yola Boone, then they will be overcome as well. On top of that, take a look at what happened later on. The Battle of Ohio took place the Battle of the trench took place. The Treaty of Arabia took place in the victory of Mecca came into play Subhana Allah what happened to all the welds they were spending everything exactly as Allah subhanho wa Taala said, they spent it they wasted it it was a loss and on top of that they lost they will overcome. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us remember, whenever people have planned against us, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the

00:12:21--> 00:13:01

ultimate planner. Whenever people have planned against you as an individual in your life, people plan your downfall sometimes even from amongst us as muslimeen we have hatred, enemy, jealousy, envy and so on, where one plans the downfall of the other, the one who is the oppressor, remember, they will be served the blow by Allah subhanho wa Taala. It cannot happen, that Allah lets it go by, he might let it go past for a little while, but the time will come when the rope will be pulled. This is why the lesson I have to draw from this beautiful verse for my own life is let me never, ever spend my wealth in order to harm other people in order to damage people in order to involve

00:13:01--> 00:13:30

negatively in the lives of others, be they whoever they are, we'd rather involve in a positive way. Even if we are reaching out to the non Muslims. Let's reach out in a way that they can find the goodness in this beautiful face that they can see and they can get the guidance, we can find them in the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala engaging in prayer because they feel the warmth in the hearts in their hearts rather than engaging in their lives negatively that they turn away. They hate Islam and the Muslims because of our own actions. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us.

00:13:32--> 00:14:10

Then verse number 47 of solitude and fall makes mention of how when the Battle of better was about to take place. You recall yesterday we made mention of how the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. His plan was not to meet them in battle. It was only to go for one caravan of Abu sufian because that wells belong to the Muslims initially, but Allah wanted them to go all the way to battle. So the people have better. In fact, the muka father of Quraysh, the disbelievers of moquette, they happen to gather approximately 1000 of them very heavily armed. And they heard that the Muslims are only 300 odd, and they are poorly armed. So they were so excited. They came out with their singers with their

00:14:10--> 00:14:44

women with their wealth with their alcohol and wines. And they came out with everything. They came out in their arrogance and haughtiness with all their top stuff they wanted to show it. You know, when they used to go for war, when they knew they were going to win. They used to bring the treasures with them to say, okay, you want to take our wealth, we'll show you we'll bring it to the battlefield still you guys are gonna lose. That's how arrogant they were. So they brought everything Allah wanted them to bring it out. They brought as much as they could their women their dances, and guess what happened that evening they were so convinced that the following day, they're going to

00:14:44--> 00:14:55

win. They started drinking and dancing and wining and dining and everything else. And they will have in their minds because you know, they suffering what we call in this part of the world, Baba last.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us that means a person who's half drunk.

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

They get up in the morning and they don't know what they're saying. Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us really.

00:15:06--> 00:15:14

So when they got up in the morning ready for the battle, they were greater in number they had more weapon they had everything. But guess what their minds were not there.

00:15:15--> 00:15:57

So they were swiped in no time the war was over the battle was over. The main people of Piraeus were all gone, assassinated, everything was done. And guess what? The wealth and the weaponry and everything came into the hands of the Muslim in May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us learn a lesson that zero tabari interceded nicotine, narrated by Muhammad niqab. He says when chorus came out on the day of better, they were boasting, they came out with drums, musical instruments and women and dances and so on. So Allah revealed verses later on to the believers. warning us don't boast don't brag, don't come out to show force for nothing to boast to people to show off never. First number 47

00:15:57--> 00:15:59

wala Taku can Latina

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

de

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

la

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

Dona Sabina Don't be like those who came out of their houses with pride in order to show off.

00:16:18--> 00:16:57

And in order to block from the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So obviously, this is a powerful verse, how does it apply to us in our lives. So some scholars happen to say that in today's times, and this is obviously just one opinion, I'm not making mention of both, but you'll understand the other opinion. But one of the opinion says, Allah is telling us here, don't waste your time showing off to people that we are begging number we have so much we had and yet you've done nothing to solve the problem. So some of the scholars say in today's world, a lot of the demonstrations that people engaging in order to chant slogans and to show large numbers have actually achieved nothing, they've

00:16:57--> 00:17:37

actually achieved No, this is one opinion, obviously, it is because Allah is saying verse number 47 of solitude, and do not be like those who have wasted their time coming out of their houses in large numbers in order to show off in order to pry their numbers and whatever noises they can make. But in essence, they've done nothing. So panela. So I think it is a powerful lesson to think about. I'm not speaking pro or anti demonstration. But what I am saying it requires a lot of thought sometimes we spend millions of dollars planning a demonstration. Whereas had we spent that to build perhaps, tents for the refugees that we were demonstrating for, perhaps we might have solved the problem. May

00:17:37--> 00:17:45

Allah help us it's just a matter of thinking. It's just a point to ponder over my brothers and sisters. Then verse number 66, of social and fun.

00:17:46--> 00:18:26

They were at the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the strength of the man and the belief of the people was such that these enemies of Mecca who were being fought, and those who wanted to attack the Muslim in the rule was that for every one believer, if they were 10 disbelievers 10 of the kuffaar the battle had to take place. So say for example, they were 300 believers and 3000. For example, Kufa, the battle had to take place. And Allah subhanho wa Taala had this rule in place, that for every one of the strong believers, they would overcome 10 of those kuffaar May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant the strength one to 10 because the man was solid.

00:18:27--> 00:18:33

Now when these verses were revealed, some of the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu they felt it a bit heavy one, I'm one I'm going to face 10 years.

00:18:36--> 00:18:39

So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verses but before I get to this verse,

00:18:40--> 00:19:15

some people who don't know much of the history of Islam, they tend to feel it. What is this about? Whoa, it's only a few of these suitors that have made mention of war. It is because when Islam came about Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, when he declared the faith, and he told him to stop worshipping their stones and idols, they did not just want to listen to him. They attacked him harmed him, they harm these people, they killed so many of them, they drove them out of their homes. So naturally, there was a liberation struggle in order to come back and achieve independence. It was a struggle of Independence, the victory of Mecca was actually the date of independence of the Muslim men. When

00:19:15--> 00:19:41

they got back there. You said land, they got back their pride, they got back what belonged to them, they got back they came back to their homes that they were driven out of. So if you look at it from that angle, it was actually a liberation struggle. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us so it is similar to making mention of all these matters that have taken place at that particular time. Allah subhanho wa Taala then makes mentioned verse number 66. So that will unfurl

00:19:42--> 00:19:46

of Allah. Kumar Lima and fie khumba

00:19:48--> 00:19:55

Allah has now made it easier for you. He has given you a discount. He's made it easier for you. He knows that there is weakness in your midst.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

He

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

komeito savella Tonioli Bhoomi attain now we will only compel you to fight, if their number is double yours if it is more than double, you don't need to fight, you can actually sign a treaty, you can actually do whatever you have to but you don't need to fight. So at the beginning it was one to 10 then Allah made it easy said no. Okay, one to two. So now, for example, if the Muslims were 1000, and the kuffaar happened to be more than 2000, they did not need to actually participate. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand this ruling? It was something that was very interesting. It was the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala, as a result of the feeling within the hearts of the believers,

00:20:43--> 00:21:19

that one to 10 is going to be very, very difficult. And like I said, People might ask, what's all these verses of war all about? The truth is, that's what happened at the time. That's what took place. So yes, the lesson is drawn by us to this day, regarding the strength and the weakness, and so many more rulings that are definitely extracted. But the implementation of verses of war, my brothers and sisters, remember one clear cut ruling, they need to only be implemented under strict conditions. And these conditions, a whole long list of them, they need to be a war, they need to be a supreme leader, there needs to be so much more that is happening. And then only would these verses

00:21:19--> 00:21:45

actually be brought into play. As I said, right at the beginning of this series, the first day that we spoke about the verses that they are verses that were revealed at times of war and versus a times of peace, we do not implement the verses of peace at the times of war, or vice versa. We need to know this. And this is why people who have less knowledge, they confuse the verses of the Quran, and they think that we are supposed to implement it all at all the time.

00:21:46--> 00:22:25

You know, if you want to, for example, cut the hand of a person. It's not just any ordinary person. We explained it is deep rulings, it needs to be a thief they need to have stolen from whatever they need to have been of such a level of mentality they needs to have been witnesses. All these conditions need to be met, and then only will you talk about amputation. A fool is He who reads the best answers right conflicts chop everybody's hands off. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. This is how verses of the Quran are being misconstrued misinterpreted, and the young are being brainwashed by such false explanations. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand the beauty of

00:22:25--> 00:22:29

going through reasons of revelation of the verses of the Quran. I mean,

00:22:30--> 00:23:09

verse number 67, also something very interesting. After the Battle of butter, they were people who were taken captive. And from amongst them, some of them were the seniors of Croatia. Some of them were related to Mohammed Salah Salah he's uncle al Abbas Ibn Abdul muttalib was one of them. And his cousin was another one the brother of Alec Nabi Polly, and the there were quite a few who were taken captive. Now one might ask, what did they do with prisoners of war at the time? Well, I can tell you, they never ever put them in orange uniforms. They never ever shackled them, and gave them a little dog kennel to live in for 20 years. Never ever did Islam do that. Islam treated them like

00:23:09--> 00:23:51

human beings fed them with the same food that the Muslims ate, clothed them with the same clothing that they were clothed with. And Islam actually came in honor them and respected them by giving them a few options. Yes, they were court martialed those from amongst them who were found guilty of war crimes, perhaps they may have faced what today is known as a firing squad, or they may have faced assassination or execution because of their guilt To this day, those who have perpetrated crimes, no matter where they have, when the court finds them guilty, and a death sentence is passed. What happens? The world is silent because they know that they were after due process of court and so on,

00:23:51--> 00:24:29

they were found guilty of the crime, and this is their punishment. It has happened lately. The same applies with the muslimeen from the very beginning. It was not just haphazard like people are doing today. It was something uniform. There was authority on the land. They were court martial and they were found either guilty or they were given an option. So at that time, because this was the first major war, there was a discussion what to do with these prisoners of war. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asks Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allah one and this hadith is mentioned in Sahih Muslim sunan Abu Dhabi Muslim Ahmed narrated by an ambassador of the Levant it's a long Hadith and he says the

00:24:29--> 00:24:33

Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked Abu Bakr Siddiq, what should we do? Should we

00:24:34--> 00:24:59

you know, execute these people, they are criminals, they they have come to kill us they have already killed so many of us so we wouldn't be wrong if we actually executed them. What should we do have a capacity for the Allahu anhu the soft man he was? He said, You know what, set them free. Perhaps let them pay some ransom or see each one the case of each one and perhaps let them loose. And this letting loose is not like you wait for 15 years and then let them loose knowing from day one that they innocent.

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

No, it was the same day or a few days later.

00:25:04--> 00:25:36

But Omar is a tabula rasa messenger. These are the warriors. These are the warriors. These are the people who came to kill us, they're going to come back again. So the best thing for you to do is to execute them. But the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he decided to free them. How did he decide to free them several ways, those who could afford to pay a certain amount, they paid it and they went, some of them were released just like that, depending on who they were, how much they participated in what they did. And some of them were told you can read and write well, we want you to teach 10 of our people to read and write and then we set you fee which means they paid in a beautiful Wait, may

00:25:36--> 00:26:27

Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand the beauty of Islam, and they were released immediately they went back to their homes. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verses verse number 67 of surah to land fall, Makana Nina been a Khun Allahu so have you three nothing. It was not for the messenger to have taken or to have had these prisoners of war. No, they should have been caught Marshall perhaps executed law. So this came in conformance to the ruling of honorable sapodilla. And that was what he felt. So Allah subhanho wa Taala said, we should have gone according to what Omar or the Allahu anhu said, so Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told the 11 that these verses have been revealed,

00:26:27--> 00:27:01

confirming that your opinion was actually a better opinion of Panama. But it was already such that the ruling had been passed and the people had been freed and so on, and beautiful stories have happened. In fact, I want to go into one beautiful story mentioned in the barani by Napa so the lover and the story of Al Abbas Ibn Abdul muttalib. Also al Hakim and biohacking have mentioned it in eration of an Kelby, but the story is generally one. Abbas Ibn Abdul muttalib is the uncle of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he was found amongst the captives, he came to attack the Muslims in battle.

00:27:02--> 00:27:36

So they found with him 20 ounces of gold, okay. Why he brought so much gold is because he had said, I am going to be one of the committee who's going to be feeding the army, you know, it needs a lot of wealth to feed 1000 people, and you need a lot of money, you need to feed people. It's not a joke, feeding people every single day a few times, a large number. So he was one of them. But the battle was over in no time, he had all this 20 with him, it was confiscated the booty. And later on, he was told to pay another amount. And he said, I don't have any amount. I don't have anything.

00:27:38--> 00:27:40

So the Prophet sallallahu sallam,

00:27:41--> 00:28:11

he looked at him and he says, Al Abbas tells the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you see the 20 that you found with me? 20 ounces. Why don't you just accept that and let me free? The prophets of Allah Salaam says no. He says, but I have nothing. He says. What about the wealth that you gave your wife, Amal father, as you were leaving Mecca, and you told her, hide this keep it in case something happens to me You can spend from this on Alphaville and our children and perhaps you take care of yourself if I don't come back.

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

Al Abbas Ibn Abdul muttalib was shocked. How do you know nobody knows besides me. And Allah. Muhammad sallahu wa sallam says, Allah informed me

00:28:24--> 00:29:01

Subhana Allah revelation miracle of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. It is reported according to some narrations, that it was at that juncture that Allah basit Abdul muttalib already declared his fate he knew inside. This is the truth. That's it. It's, you know what, nobody knew. Nobody at all would have known what I've done. And this was the wealth. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about another very interesting point. You know, we have the houses of Allah, some people don't come for Salah, but they contribute a lot to the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they might help in so many different ways. They will paint it they'll serve the people there, but their link with Allah is

00:29:01--> 00:29:23

severed or their link with the worshipers of Allah is very bad. They harm the people they cause damage and so on. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, speaking about a mosquito Haram, and speaking about the house of Allah in Mecca, Al Abbas Ibn Abdul muttalib, when he was in captivity, that they have but just prior to this incident, some of the Muslim men went to him and said, Al Abbas,

00:29:24--> 00:30:00

what's wrong with you? You know, you are a person who is now caught captive here. Why don't you accepted Islam come You know, it's the truth. He says, What are you talking about? We We are the ones who have built that house, meaning that we are the ones who look after it. We are the ones who quench the thirst of the adjudge. We are the ones who put a cover on that cover every year, and he was bragging about it. So according to this narration, mentioned in the book known as a suburban rezone of Anwar Hedy, he says, thereafter, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus explaining that the two are not the same.

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

Looking after the places one thing, but being a true believer, and adopting the laws of Allah is something completely different mechanical machinery kina mo messaggi de la hija de la

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

bilko for the machine to be building or looking after the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala What a waste of time bearing witness against themselves that they are Kufa. What's the benefit of it? The next verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in this wisdom, but 19 Agia I'll

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

tell

00:30:35--> 00:30:37

you, I'ma tell Miss Jean how

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

Kammen.

00:30:43--> 00:30:45

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

una

de la la una de la toma volley mean, do you consider it equal to be

00:30:58--> 00:31:36

quenching the thirst of the Hajaj and to be building or looking after al Masjid al haram? Is that equal to the one who believes in Allah and the Last Day and struggles in the course of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Indeed, the two of them are not equal. And Allah does not guide those who are oppressive. Look at the verses. And this is another narration it's a Muslim Muslim Ummah by unromantic niboshi, for the Allahu Allah. He says, I was at the member of Mohammed salatu salam in Madina, munawwara and I heard a man saying, now that I'm a Muslim, I don't have to worry, all I'll do is I'll go for Hajj and I'll be pouring some some for the judge and that's it my gender. Another

00:31:36--> 00:32:18

man says no, all I'm going to do is I'm going to go to Makkah, and I'll make sure that I build the the Kaaba or meaning the the the masjid and I look after it and I renovate it and I ensure that everything is done. And here comes another man. And he says no, he says to struggle in the cause of Allah is far more valuable. He says to be able to serve Allah subhanho wa Taala work against your whims and fancies far more valuable. So Omar will sobre la who heard this commotion, where was the commotion in Madina? munawwara at the member of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when the Allahu anhu hears this commotion, he says, keep quiet. This is Juma and this is the member of

00:32:18--> 00:32:54

Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam stop making noise here. And later on verses were revealed, verses were revealed the verses I just read, saying that these two are not the same, indeed we need to worship Allah and Allah alone. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us my brothers and sisters. One very important point tomorrow inshallah we will be continuing with surah two tilbyr and Sora to Toba has a lot to do with the Battle of tabuk and we will see what the hypocrites did very deep in depth stories and details and verses that were revealed that expose the hypocrites May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all from hypocrisy. We hope to be meeting with you again tomorrow with sal Allahu
