Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:12--> 00:00:47

smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala Most Gracious, Most Merciful Alhamdulillah Allah Al Ameen. All praises indeed do to Allah subhana wa rahmatullah wa Salatu was Salam. O Allah Shafi nambia evil mousseline Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa bien, woman tabea homie son in Isla Yomi Deen. We send complete blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household, all his companions, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to bless them all and to bless every single one of us, my beloved brothers and sisters,

00:00:48--> 00:01:14

a beautiful house of Allah subhanho wa Taala, a beautiful eve of the month of Ramadan, a beautiful crowd of Muslim men and Muslim ads. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive us, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless every single one of us. We are going through the reasons of revelation of verses of the Quran. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant this lesson from these beautiful

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

reasons.

00:01:17--> 00:02:01

The story that I'm going to start with or the incident that I'm going to commence with, is something extremely interesting. We all know that Islam is the fastest growing religion, the number of Muslim men phenomenal. It's not easy to accept Islam. When the whole world seems to be portraying the wrong image of Islam. It's not easy to become Muslim, when you hear that this person has actually embraced Islam, it should move you we who are born Muslim at times, are not as strong as those who have reverted to Islam, after seeing the darkness. And this is why sometimes when you have something on the platter, when you have it on, you know given to you, you don't appreciate it. But sometimes when

00:02:01--> 00:02:14

you have searched for it, when you have prayed for it, when you have looked for it, and when it has come to you after a struggle, you tend to appreciate May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us appreciate what we have. Allah says quite clearly what

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

data will

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

come and

00:02:20--> 00:03:01

if you are going to turn away, we will replace you with others, those who will not turn away. I was thinking a few moments ago, that insalata tarawih those who want to escape the Salah. It's not going to stop people from fulfilling it, there will be others who will fulfill it. But you have to ask yourself, Am I from amongst those who lazes who becomes very lazy? Am I from amongst those who runs away? If that's the case, there are others who've taken my place. So I better not be from amongst those who run away. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted from us. I mean, so at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. There were many people accepting Islam. There were people

00:03:01--> 00:03:43

who are embracing the fold of Islam. And obviously there were others who could not stomach this, they could not see it. They thought of a plan every plan to try and bring these people back the week from amongst them they thought let us hatch a plan so that we can bring them back. And one of these plans was they thought to themselves and they spoke to themselves the names mentioned here. Abdullah hipness safe idea museum and heritage. Now, this is a narration made mentioned by Agnes Huck. He is narrating from Allah, Allah and he says these three were speaking to one another. They said let us hatch a plan whereby in the daytime in the morning, we will pretend to be muslimeen. And then in the

00:03:43--> 00:03:49

evening, we will go back to what we were worshipping, they were people of the book.

00:03:51--> 00:04:14

And they said, We are doing this in order that those who have accepted Islam would come back. We will try to con them that all these faiths are actually one. All these faiths are one. So Allah subhanho wa Taala exposed them verse number 72 of Allah Emraan was revealed. Exposing these three and the few others who had this plan, work on

00:04:15--> 00:04:15

effect

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

kita

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

de de la la la Vina

00:04:27--> 00:04:30

work flew to LA.

00:04:31--> 00:05:00

Oh, Allah says a group from amongst the people of the book they said, believe in that which was revealed to the believers in one part of the day and the other part of the day, this believe in it in order to create confusion, so that they may return and obviously they were exposed and Allah subhanho wa Taala clarified it for us all to say the truth is manifest. No need to go back once you have found it. My brothers and sisters, those who doubt the correctness of Islam,

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

Lamb, it's actually because of lack of knowledge or misinformation that they have. When we have knowledge and the knowledge is sound, we will never ever doubt what Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed us with.

00:05:13--> 00:05:55

Then there is a verse, which is connected to several incidents. And I must pause for a moment to tell you that some of the verses of the Quran were revealed for more than one incident. They were sometimes revealed repeatedly, in order to clarify the position or to make clear the guidance on certain matters that perhaps occurred at different times. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has been sent gibreel Allah, his salam, every Ramadan, to study the Quran with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to revise it in order to get the order of the verses the order of the sutras in order to know which verse falls into which surah Hence, we have the Quran as we have it today. But the verses in

00:05:55--> 00:06:26

the Quran were not revealed in this order. Rather, this order exists in the preserve tablet with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And when it was completed. 23 years later, we had this beautiful order memorized in the hearts of the men, and later on to be transcribed, one might ask, why didn't they write it down immediately? That's a question that some people say the reason is, they were people who were unable to read and write in most of the cases who will lead the battlefield. Gina rasuna.

00:06:28--> 00:06:51

It is Allah who sent it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who sent from amongst the unlimited a messenger from them. So it shows that the bulk of them were unable to read or write, but they had memories, memories that took back the lineage of their camels, seven generations. We don't even know our own lineage. For generations, Allahu Akbar, May Allah forgive us.

00:06:53--> 00:07:00

So, at that particular time, there is a hadith with de la by Abdullah Masuda de la when

00:07:02--> 00:07:49

he says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says whoever takes an oath, whoever swears an oath by Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is lying in order to take or usurp the wealth of another, he will meet Allah whilst Allah is very angry with him on the Day of Judgment. So you don't ever make a promise or take an oath while you are lying in order to deceive someone to steal from them to usurp their wealth. So hypnotized Allah and when he heard this Hadith, he says, while law he there was between myself and the Jewish men, a piece of land that was disputed, it was mine, but the Jewish man said it was his. So we went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and as usual, he was

00:07:49--> 00:08:31

very just he asked the Jewish men or he asked me to begin with, do you have any evidence to prove it is yours? hypnotize or the Allahu anhu says, No, I don't have any evidence. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looks at the Jewish men. And he says, Are you prepared to swear an oath by Allah that this land belongs to you? So Allah hypnotized, the Allahu anhu. He says, hang on our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it is so easy for this man to just say yes, I swear by Allah, it's my land, and you're going to give it to him yet it's not his land. You see, this goes to show that to this day, people use what larvae and they are telling a lie. In fact, I my experience shows

00:08:31--> 00:08:36

that when someone puts more test deed on the term will lie, perhaps they have something to hide.

00:08:38--> 00:09:01

My brother, why are you doing that? Perhaps you have something to hide. I didn't say You're lying. But there's something wrong. We should be such that without swearing the oath. People believe us. That's the moment that's a believer. There was a time a few generations back. In fact, earlier on with our own parents, when if they were to give just their tongue it was enough. Anyone would believe them for a million dollars. But today for five rounds, they still won't believe that.

00:09:02--> 00:09:03

It's reality.

00:09:04--> 00:09:18

We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect us. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam paused for a moment and the verses were revealed, verse number 77 of Allah in Milan, in alladhina Yasha una de la

00:09:20--> 00:09:25

semana Paulina, una de kala, kala, kala

00:09:27--> 00:09:27

Walla

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

Walla, yo,

00:09:32--> 00:09:35

yo malkia Mati Walla

00:09:36--> 00:10:00

Walla, Hamada Boone Aleem those who swear an oath using the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Yet through that oath they intend to to buy something which means they're exchanging an oath in order to deceive people out of their wealth. Allah subhanho wa Taala says they will have no portion of the hereafter and Allah subhanho wa Taala will not look at them.

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

On the day of judgment, and Allah subhanho wa Taala will not speak to them on the Day of Judgment. May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us, he says for them is a severe punishment. So before you make or before you take an oath, think very hard. Then in Sahih, Al Bukhari and eration of Abdullah have not to be over another narration connected to the same verse. He says there was a man who came to the marketplace, and he listened carefully because this happens in our lives. It happens a lot. He was promising an oath using a last name guaranteeing that he was offered a certain amount for the commodity he wanted to sell. And the only reason he lied was he wanted someone to offer him a higher

00:10:42--> 00:11:18

offer. A lot of people do this. They tell you, hey, I've been offered $500 for this. There was no such offer. But he wants to hear you say okay, I'll offer you 600 May Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive us, really, this is happening to this day, people lie in order to earn $1 or two around or to lie, it's not worth it. Allah says such people who use the name of Allah in order to lie regarding their cost price, or regarding an offer that was made to them for a certain commodity. Allah doesn't look at them on the Day of Judgment, they've lost their era for them is a severe punishment. Why use the name of Allah to tell a lie? Now Allah subhanahu Allah protect us from

00:11:18--> 00:11:21

falsehood. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us goodness.

00:11:23--> 00:11:56

Then, another narration reported in Sudan and Maasai and by Imam Ahmed in his Muslim by Abdullah have not been for the long run. He says there was a man from amongst the answer who accepted Islam. And later, he quit apostasy. He quit Islam and he went back to another religion that he belonged to. And after some time, he wanted to come back. So he inquired, he enquired Is it okay, if I come back, I've learned and I've repented and so on. So they asked the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this regard?

00:11:57--> 00:12:01

verses of surah Allah Emraan 86 to 89 were revealed in this regard.

00:12:03--> 00:12:06

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Can you fire the lamb?

00:12:07--> 00:12:11

Como Imani him? What should he do?

00:12:17--> 00:12:41

How? How will Allah guide someone who disbelieved after they had seen the truth, after they had believed in a live His Messenger and after the truth had come to them? They then disbelieved and the verses continue and continue until Allah says, in levena, taboo, back de la liga, Allah for Allah.

00:12:45--> 00:13:08

There is an exception of those who repent to Allah and make amends for them. Indeed, Allah is most forgiving, Most Merciful. So even those who have left Islam, there is forgiveness for them if they repent and come back. Remember this? Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about it. And as we said, it is an erosion of Abdullah have now been

00:13:09--> 00:13:39

in sooner and Maasai. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us an understanding Imagine if a person who could the deen there is repentance for him while he is alive to come back and Allah says I'm most forgiving, Most Merciful. What about the examples of you and I who have sinned, but we have not forgotten our faith. We have not been a we have not given up our faith. Surely there is more hope for us. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala. Forgive us during these beautiful days of the month of Ramadan. It is a month of forgiveness for sure.

00:13:41--> 00:14:20

Anyone who does not achieve forgiveness during this beautiful month of Ramadan, they've wasted the month. Allah He my brothers and sisters, it is not a joke to come in and stand for Salah to taraweeh for an hour, two hours, three hours, the longer the greater the reward. Remember this May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you all. And may Allah bless us all and except from us, the moments that we are standing in taraweeh the bulk of us have not really made an effort to memorize nor have we made an effort to learn the work or to prepare what is to be recited this evening, most of us come and we are listening. That is the easy job. The more difficult job is for those who are actually reciting.

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

May Allah make it easy for us all.

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

So my brothers and sisters, that is an incident that occurred and we have learned a lesson from it. Another very, very interesting incident. The Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam in the Battle of ocean, he was harmed his teeth, or his tooth was broken. He had a gash on his face. sallallahu alayhi wasallam his beard had the most blessed droplets of blood ever to exist on them. Subhana Allah there was no decisive victory for either side. The Battle of offered the reason is the Muslim means

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

Have them disobeyed the instruction of Allah and His messenger. And that shows us, anyone from amongst us when we disobeyed the instruction of Allah and His messenger. How do we expect success? We want to succeed, but we want to succeed with our own formula, a formula that really has already been tried and tested and it has flopped and failed. What about those that have been tried and tested? And they have succeeded? The formula of Allah subhanho wa Taala. May Allah make it easy for us to turn to him, I mean,

00:15:31--> 00:16:11

so at that point, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he made a statement, obviously, he was in pain. And obviously it was something that was not easy to be seen and witnessed. And he was concentrating on the fact. I am a messenger of Allah, calling people towards Allah and look at what they've done to me. Imagine I'm calling you towards goodness and you beating me up and calling you to become a better person. Quit your lies, quit your bad habits, stop worshipping sticks and stones and you want to beat me up. So he makes a statement sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It is narrated by Mr. Muslim, from Anna Sydney Malika the Allahu Allah. He says on that day, the Prophet sallallahu

00:16:11--> 00:16:31

alayhi wa sallam says, How will such a nation succeed? Those who have harmed their messenger while he was calling them towards goodness, how will they succeed? And Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus Amazing, amazing versus was number 128 of Surah Al Imran Li Salah, kameena I'm Rishi

00:16:36--> 00:16:37

badimo

00:16:39--> 00:17:19

the instruction is not yours or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it is ours. We are the ones who will decide whether we want to forgive them, guide them etc, etc. Yes, they are a precious they have done wrong, but it's up to us to do what we wish. Amazing. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Let's take a look at another incident connected to the same verse. He used to pray. He used to pray against certain people sallallahu alayhi wasallam those who harmed him so much. He used to pray against them. This is a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari narrated by Abdullayev neuroma Ravi Allahumma and he says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to pray against certain people

00:17:20--> 00:17:42

in solitude. and various other times and when this verse was revealed, where Allah is saying, we can choose what we want to do with them. He stopped and then he started praying for people. And then he continued having hope. Subhana Allah, I want to draw your attention to something that happened earlier than better sorry, earlier than

00:17:43--> 00:17:48

in the 10th year of Nobu of prophethood. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to

00:17:49--> 00:18:10

take a look at what he did. He The same thing happened where they, they cause the most blessed droplets of blood to fall into the shoes of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he prayed for them, not against them with us small problem with your own sister in law, Yala destroyer,

00:18:11--> 00:18:42

gala breaker, Allah you know, break them Yella finish them up, Deanna? Where are you? Why don't you raise your hands? Perhaps the angels are saying I mean, y'all soften their hearts, bring them together, Yala. unite our families. Every single extended family has to have politics. It's impossible to have an extended family without a little bit of politics. That is your test. No one did black magic on you remember this? Because that's a quick way out. Nobody did it. Allah subhanho wa Taala says goddess

00:18:43--> 00:18:59

we'd rather stop blaming people blame shape on make dua for the people Oh Allah. Grant, my brother goodness unite us Yala. bring us together as families continue making that da voila he a day will come when that will be responded by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

But I make dua for your destruction you make dua for my destruction. Take a look at what's happening to the whole oma today, people are struggling and suffering each one cursing the other. Perhaps it's time to stop all that. Perhaps it's time to start praying for the people whom you disagree with, for the people whom perhaps you've had a problem with. ask Allah to bless them and guide them take a page in the leaf from these beautiful verses and from the lesson of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:19:27--> 00:19:31

Subhan Allah. Let's take a look at another powerful lesson.

00:19:33--> 00:19:42

Tsunami diode and tsunami de they've made mention of a hadith of Ibn Abbas or the Allahu Allah, where he says, just after the Battle of bedroom

00:19:44--> 00:20:00

there was a red government that happened to disappear from the booty, you know from what they had collected. There was a red government that happened to disappear. So some of the people happen to throw comments. Listen carefully, because

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

It happens to this day. Something goes missing in your home My beloved sister's, a piece of jewelry your earrings go missing your ring goes missing. Who is to blame? Let's be honest. Who's the first person? You think about

00:20:15--> 00:20:17

the maid? I sorry, I heard someone here said

00:20:18--> 00:20:32

I didn't think of it. I heard someone say to me, there you are. Innocent maid who's worked for you tirelessly for so long, and you have misplaced it somewhere. When you find it after two weeks, guess what you end up saying?

00:20:34--> 00:21:14

Tell me she put it back. There Allah forgive us. Allah forgive us. These are the statements people make. We don't learn a lesson from the Quran where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, some ignorant people happen to say perhaps Muhammad peace be upon him took that red clothing for himself. The red government perhaps it was for himself, Aston Villa. How dare people utter these words, the prophet peace be upon him never took anything deceivingly he never cheated. He was in the be of Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals verses. Verse number 161 womac annalena been a

00:21:16--> 00:21:17

TV Ma.

00:21:20--> 00:22:01

It is not befitting for a messenger. It is not for a messenger this Nabhi of Allah subhanho wa Taala to take something deceivingly while it's cheating, he did not take anything sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah says whoever takes something usurps, it takes it was cheating or deceiving. It will be brought forth on the day of judgment and they will have to give full account of it. May Allah protect us from false accusation. Remember, if you don't know, remain silent, you might want to investigate. And if you don't come up with some solution, if you don't come up with a meaningful finding, perhaps your silence would drive you to paradise because that false accusation, the

00:22:01--> 00:22:39

probabilities of that being wrong, are great. And even if there are small the chances of us entering jahannam because we've accused an innocent person will lie. We wouldn't like to take that risk. May Allah subhanahu Wata Allah forgive us, let's stop accusing one another of doing things we've not done. A lot of us have sued one, the minute something happens, the worst possible thought comes to our mind as muslimeen we are taught to have Krishna done, which means the minute something happens, the best possible thought should come to your mind. While it that's a moment. Are you really a believer, my brothers and sisters, do you really believe if you do have a good thought when

00:22:39--> 00:22:51

something happens? Yes, whilst you're investigating, the probabilities are wide open, you may want to investigate a lot of people, but you will not claim that anyone is guilty until they are proven so

00:22:52--> 00:23:03

May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us learn this beautiful lesson. Another very, very interesting lesson reported in soon and unnecessary by Abdullayev now boss rhodiola when he says after the Battle of Oxford,

00:23:05--> 00:23:14

it's listened carefully after the Battle of Oxford. And you know what happened in Oxford, we made mention of some of it a little bit earlier. Abu sufian at that time was not a Muslim.

00:23:16--> 00:23:22

news came to the Muslim mean that he has gathered the people once again to come back to attack

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

or he is daring, the meaning

00:23:28--> 00:23:57

with the army once again to come back. And obviously now It was a difficult time, the momineen had been injured because you know, the archers had come down from that mount. They had suffered injury. And they were at a in a in a time or in a position where it was very difficult for them to prepare another quick platoon and to go back to face Abu sufian somewhere else just after often. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam according to some of the narrations, he called

00:23:58--> 00:24:35

on some of his companions, in fact, the companions and he said let's go and some of them got ready. So Pamela, as injured as they were, the battle just finished. They now heard that Abu sufian has come or he is preparing an army and these people have gathered for you. So they decided let's go they joined the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they started marching Subhan Allah, they started marching. And Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed beautiful verses. Because when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard that Abu sufian has gathered once again. Do you know what he said?

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

Has spoon Allahu?

00:24:42--> 00:24:57

Allah is sufficient for us, and He is the best disposal of our affairs. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was taught that when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was thrown into the fire, that's the same words that he uttered, the fire was called a miracle happened.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

So Mohammed salatu salam

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

To these words, and you know what? They ended up going and they found no one there.

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

And they did some business deals there, they earn some profit and they came back alive. So instead it was a lot driving them there to earn something and to come back, but they were groups of people who remain behind. Now listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, verse number 161 of surah Allah imraan Oh sorry, 172

00:25:27--> 00:25:28

alladhina

00:25:30--> 00:26:05

sunim that Bhima asaba homolka Latina Salome no Matata. naumi. Allah is making mention of a judo nauseam, the great reward for whom, for those who responded to the call of the messenger when he called to them after that battle, where they had suffered quite a bit of injury and the call came immediately thereafter. Those who responded positively Allah says for them is a judo Navin they will have a great reward alladhina Kala Manaslu in sakata gem Ola come for

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

him and Allah says when the people came to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to tell him and the believers that those Abu sufian and a lot have now gathered again for you. So you need to fear them. In fact, it made the minion stronger in their Eman. They feared nobody. So Panama they feared none. Well Carlo has spoon Allah. metalworking, they uttered the word haspin Allahu Allah is enough for us. Allah is sufficient for us. If Allah is with us, we don't need anyone else. He is the best Disposer of all our affairs, he will take care of everything connected to us. Learn these words my brothers and sisters has been a loved one in Milwaukee. Some of the most powerful words are to them

00:26:56--> 00:26:57

when you've got news that is bad.

00:26:59--> 00:27:10

And not to them just like that, to thank Allah to praise Allah subhanho wa Taala Hassan Allah when a man Joaquin, Allah says phone call I met him minima he was

00:27:11--> 00:27:12

just home.

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

What

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

was

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

happening now the

00:27:22--> 00:27:39
