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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:05--> 00:00:49

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala MV mursaleen Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Tabby Norman tambien ba San elijo Medina. We praise Allah subhanho wa Jalla. We thank him for everything he has bestowed upon us. We send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household, all his companions, may Allah bless them all and bless every single one of us. My brothers and sisters, sometimes in the narrations of the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, we find that some people fabricates certain narrations, but they are very quickly caught out. For example, if we were to study the chain

00:00:49--> 00:01:35

of narrators of a Hadith, we would pick up those who perhaps have not met each other yet the narration, it seems from the chain that the two have met. If we were to study each individual, in person or personally, we would find perhaps one passed away even before the birth of the other. So in that way, we will be able to know that this narration is incorrect. And there are many other ways of actually telling us if a narration is correct or not. One such narration that happens to have crept into some of the reasons of revelation of the verses of the Quran is integration that is made mentioned whereby it is made mention of by Allah Heidi, and I've made mention of it in the past

00:01:35--> 00:02:18

about 10 years ago when we discussed reasons of revelation that Allah tala the Allahu anhu, he was in ruku. At one stage, and someone had asked for something and while he was in report, he gave a charity. The reality is that is a fabricated narration, it is actually unacceptable and it is wrong. It was added in by people who have elevated the status of it or the alarm, higher than it actually is. Perhaps the she as what has happened, my brothers and sisters is sometimes you find beautiful words that are said by people. When someone wants to add value to someone who they love a lot. They happen to attach that name. So you find sometimes a statement by Shakespeare. And at the end someone

00:02:18--> 00:02:59

says Allah, Allahu Allah, and that is actually very, very blasphemous. alioli Allah Han has a very, very high status. We all know it. He's one of the top four of the NFL, and there is no need for us to actually transgress the limits go beyond We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us and to grant us beautiful respect of all the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Remember, anyone who loves the Sahaba loves Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam anyone who loves Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam loves Allah subhanho wa Taala if a person does not love the Sahaba the Allahu anhu How can he love Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and one who does not love the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will

00:02:59--> 00:03:43

never ever be able to love Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless every single one of us. Going forward making mention of the penal code in Islam, we would find that many people when they talk of the Sharia, they are quick to say that in Islam, the hand is cut. I'm sure you've heard that the minute someone thinks of Cherie, Oh, dude, the first thing they think of is people moving around with an amputated hand. And this is the furthest away from the truth. Remember, in Islam, yes, there is a penal system. And as we mentioned yesterday, we limit or the maximum punishment is very severe, because it is a deterrent more than anything else. For example, if a

00:03:43--> 00:04:25

person was to steal wood, we cut his hand the answer is, there is a long procedure before the person's hand would actually be amputated. And let me take you into some of it. Firstly, they need to be seen, they need to be adult, they need to be a person who has stolen more than a certain amount in value. If it is something minor, then they would be penalized, but to a lesser degree. Similarly, the item that they have stolen needs to have been an item that definitely did not belong to them even with a doubt. So if there is a discrepancy regarding an item, it may have belonged to them, it may not have belonged to them, they happen to go and take it that's not considered

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

pinching, it will be penalized perhaps but to a lesser degree. Similarly, if they have stolen the item from a place that is considered secure and safe for that particular item, then it would be considered However, if your money is dangling out of your back pocket and someone happens to pull it out, they will be penalized but not that their hand is cut because you had a role to play in inviting them to steal. Like if your house is wide open and someone walks in and take something they are called perhaps robbers or they are burglars maybe but you are the one who left your doors open. Have you locked

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

Have you locked your motor vehicle, then someone broke it, then we are talking about perhaps the maximum punishment being implemented. Similarly, there needs to be eyewitnesses to males who are brilliant muslimeen, who are really dedicated believers who have witnessed the act and can describe it separately to adjudge exactly the same with the colors and the details and the timings and every single detail. If all these conditions are met and a few more conditions, then the issue of the amputation of the hand is discussed. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us it is quite deep, and therefore many of those who perhaps might be stealing, they would achieve or they would get a lesser

00:05:41--> 00:06:21

punishment, perhaps a jail sentence, perhaps a few lashes, perhaps something else, depending on the discretion of the judge and the magnitude of that particular crime. There is a narration in Muslim dilemma Mohamad by Abu lahab. Number one, he says there was a woman who had stolen at the time of Rasulullah salaam, salaam, and all the conditions were met, and they amputated her hand. And she had one question for the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, what was the question? The question was now that my hand is amputated? Will I be forgiven for the crime committed? What a beautiful question. She's more worried about being forgiven by Allah because she realizes the remorse and she realizes

00:06:21--> 00:06:35

she understands that she feels guilty. What about my record with Allah, so verses were revealed verse number 39, of pseudotumor, either from a da da da da da Lune. Meanwhile, also, for in Allah,

00:06:38--> 00:07:19

whoever has repented to Allah after the operation, and they have made amends, they have come back to the right path. Allah is indeed most forgiving, Most Merciful. The lesson is for us all brothers and sisters, after you've done wrong, you repent to Allah, you tend to him, admit your sin, regret it. ask Allah forgiveness, promised not to do it again. Guess what? wiped out May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us May he wipe our sins out. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us understand the Hadith at Evo mina thembi. Kamala Bella, the prophets of Allah Salaam says whoever repents from a sin is equivalent to the one who has no sin. What type of Hope is this? Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa

00:07:19--> 00:07:21

Taala forgive us all. I mean,

00:07:22--> 00:07:59

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the companions were always around him, and they always wanted to make sure no one harmed him. So they used to stand around his bodyguards. And sometimes on his journeys, they were even more alert more careful at night, sometimes they would sit outside his little tent, they would pitch a tent normally, and he would they would sit around and make sure that no one comes near. So one evening, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and this is a narration made mention of him soon in a TV movie, as well as in Tanana by eyeshadow on her. She says, I was with the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we happen to be one of the journeys, and there was a

00:07:59--> 00:08:44

tent that was pitched, and at the same time, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he asked a question, he says, Allah, Allah, Julian, sila, honey, yeah, Harrison and Layla, is there no pious person or good person who can perhaps look after us this evening, meaning take care of the external matters, you know, those who may want to attack and so on, take care of them. And a little while later, he heard the sound of some sores. And he asked Who is that? And it happened to be sad. And today, 5 million men are the Allahumma. They said we have come here or messenger to God, we have come here to God. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam went off to sleep so much so that that evening, I Shanahan he says you

00:08:44--> 00:09:01

could hear a snow that's how he slept, he slept so well. You could hear a snore. And then when he got up, Allah subhanho wa Taala had revealed versus verse number 67 of Surah tilma de la jolla similkameen. And

00:09:03--> 00:09:48

it's part of a longer verse, Allah says, Allah will protect you from the people. You don't need people to look after you. You don't need bodyguards, and that moment the Prophet sallallahu Sallam took his head out of the little tent. And he told him Allah has revealed this verse, you people can dismiss I no longer need anyone to ever act as a bodyguard. And from that day, no more nobody ever looked after the messenger. So much so that the Hadith the Sahaba della honom, say say cannot either step backs it decay, Nabeel Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, when we were in the war, and when it became hot, you know, the war was at the heat, the peak where the enemy actually came forth. We were

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

all behind the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was in France Subhana Allah, amazing, because Allah protected him Allah says we will protect you from the people, they can try what they want. So the Sahaba of Allah Allah knew that the safest

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

place here is behind the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Take a look at the world leaders today. They perhaps might instruct in issue instruction for the for their armies to go out, you know, on war or what have you, and they are the last people to know about it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us be brave. Obviously, it's a lesson in bravery. But more than that, it's a lesson regarding the status of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It's a lesson that Allah has said that he will protect him. Nobody can harm Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, not only his person, but even his reputation. Look at what they've tried to do. The more cartoons the more videos guess what the more

00:10:39--> 00:11:02

people are entering the fold of Islam, the more people are beginning to read about him, the more people are beginning to love him. They are realizing that what people are saying is just jealousy, hatred, envy and so on. We asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to help us love Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam in the true sense, May Allah forgive our shortcomings, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us Jenna together with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:11:03--> 00:11:06

Then there is integration in soon and the TVD as well as,

00:11:07--> 00:11:48

as soon as you can imagine. By aborto VEDA Hello, the Allahu Allah. He says, at the time of the prophets of Allah, he told us that some of the people of the book and the Jewish people, when from amongst them, someone used to do something bad. They used to tell them lightly You know what, what you've done is wrong. And then they would forget about it The following day, they are with them as though nothing has happened. So they did not use to discourage people from evil. And as a result, Allah kiss them. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala has instructed us to do two things Allah Maru bill Morrow, and an uncle, which means we should encourage people to do good, and we should discourage

00:11:48--> 00:12:31

people from bad. If I see you do something bad, it is my duty to let you know. And if you see me do something bad, it is your duty to let me know. It doesn't mean you saw me doing something bad or vice versa. So I tweet about it. I put it on Facebook. No, I need to get to you because I love you. I care for you. And quietly I need to say Look, my brother I noticed this, I might have noticed wrong, but you know what, perhaps you need to correct this it is better for you. And I'm not allowed to feel bad Subhan Allah, Allah says, verse number 79 of sawtell Merida, Gan olaiya, Tana hona Macario. Follow Nabil sama can find Oh, the curse of the certain groups of people from amongst the

00:12:31--> 00:12:42

people of the book was because they did not use to stop each other from that they did not use to stop each other from the evil that they did. And Allah says, what an evil deed.

00:12:43--> 00:12:47

I just remain quiet and I know you're a friend of mine. And this is why Allah says Allah.

00:12:58--> 00:13:33

Allah says those who are bosom buddies, friends in this world, they will be enemies on the Day of Judgment except those who are conscious of Allah, except those who are pious, those who reminded each other of goodness time of Salah, and one of the friends wants to walk away. You tell me Listen, come for Salah. You see a person with a bad habit from amongst your friends, it's your duty to let them know in a good way. You don't have to embarrass them. Because everyone has their own little tribe May Allah forgive us. No one wants to be told in public Hey brother, this is what you do know. They want to be told privately they want to be told in a beautiful way. So learn to remind one

00:13:33--> 00:14:11

another for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why the prophets Allah wa sallam has told us that you will stop the oppressor from oppression Otherwise, you will all collectively be served the punishment. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us. I draw a lesson from this and that is never feel bad when someone corrects you. If someone corrects your recitation, they correct anything of yours. They correct the way you speak. They correct your pronunciation, whatever else they correct, they correct a religious matter, or a worldly matter. Do not feel bad, do not feel hurt. If you feel bad, you will never learn. Imagine you go to school. And the answer you say one

00:14:11--> 00:14:30

plus one is three. And the teacher tells you to when you start crying, and you feel bad and you don't want to talk to the person again, the same happens in my life and yours. If you or I happen to see something bad in someone, we're lucky we should never feel bad to correct or to be corrected. That's a powerful lesson we learn from this.

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

Then we have another very, very beautiful incident. And I think I want to introduce it with a reminder to us all. We all read the Quran, don't we? How many of us have completed the Quran from cover to cover? I'm sure a lot of us Subhana Allah. We've completed it many times how many of us have shed tears for the verses of the Quran? How many of us when we've heard the verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We've cried and the tears have rolled down our cheeks.

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

How many of us we hear the verses of the Quran and our lives have changed. How many of us? Do you know? At the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? one verse used to change enemies of Islam, they softened up they cracked up and he became the most powerful of companions. Example amargosa rhodiola when he heard a few verses of Surah Taha, very few, he had enmity in his heart, but he realized, Hey, this is powerful. It changed him It moved him instead of going to murder Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he went to kiss his forehead, meaning he accepted Islam. Subhana Allah, he cried, he changed his whole life. We are muslimeen we have the Quran in our midst. It's the word of Allah subhanho wa

00:15:42--> 00:16:20

Taala yet, it doesn't change our life. We read the atom upon Saturn, which means we complete one must have and another one. We listened to it whole day. We listened to it in the evening. We have the CDs playing. We have the radios and everything else. The Quran is playing all over, but it hasn't moved us at all. Why? My brothers and sisters let's take a look at what happened to Anna joshy he asks Jaffer if not be thought about the Allahu anhu to read a few verses and he happens to cry. These tears later on mentioned in the Quran. According to some durations, its integration like I said above obaidul. In fact, its integration in Sudan and Maasai of Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, the

00:16:20--> 00:16:30

Lama and he says these are the tears of Najafi being made mention of invest number 83 of pseudotumor either, either Samia Roma,

00:16:31--> 00:16:33

Xena, no Sunita

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

taffy, Amina

00:16:39--> 00:16:39

Amina.

00:16:40--> 00:16:53

When they hear the verses that have been revealed to the messenger, you will find their eyes being filled with tears because of what they recognize as the truth. Yep, una Bana

00:16:55--> 00:17:13

Bana Masha Hedy when they say, oh, our up we have believed so write our names from amongst those who have borne witness. Amazing how many of us can cry. You remember if you shed a tear for Allah? Do you know what the Hadith says?

00:17:15--> 00:17:54

There are seven categories of people who will be granted a special shade on the Day of Judgment. One of them is Raja Luna, Kerala, hollien forefather Tina, a person who they remember Allah alone, and their eyes are filled with tears. Allah says you deserve VIP status on the Day of Judgment, you cried for me Subhanallah your your eyes were filled with tears because of me. Allah says you deserve a special status on the Day of Judgment. May Allah make us from amongst those who cry for the right reasons A lot of us something small happens and we begin to cry. With whom May Allah forgive us? Like I always say someone you're not even supposed to be having a relationship with. They told you

00:17:54--> 00:18:29

right? I've cut up with you no more I'm becoming a good believer from now on no more relationship between you and me and that's a cut. We begin to cry. In fact, we should be thanking Allah that this relation is cut we in the month of Ramadan Haram is gone. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us May He grant us understanding. I remember one youngster after Ramadan he wanted to Kingdom haram relationship so when he was asked why are you doing this? He says that's because shaytan is now released. I can feel him. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us these are cheap, lame excuses. Don't use them month of Ramadan is a month of turning to the right direction. It doesn't mean now

00:18:29--> 00:18:36

you've turned to the right direction Ramadan is over. So now you're going back to the wrong direction. No. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all.

00:18:38--> 00:18:49

Then we have a narration in Sudan a tyranny the bypass or the Allahu anhu he says there was a man who came to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and said, I have prohibited on myself red meat.

00:18:50--> 00:18:59

Why? He says because I get energy when I eat it. And I become aroused and I'm attracted to the opposite sex and I can't concentrate.

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

So Allah subhanho wa Taala to you this is clarifying this verse number 88 of pseudotumor EDA yeah yo Han Latina man Allah to Hadley ma Eva tema, Allah, Allah Holla Holla Holla

00:19:17--> 00:20:00

Holla Holla Holla Daddy, oh you who believe do not prohibit upon yourselves the beautiful food, the clean food, the that which is pure food that Allah subhanho wa Taala has made permissible for you and do not go beyond the limits for Allah does not like those who go beyond the limits. So this Sahabi what he learned is everything you eat in moderation you need to understand and it doesn't mean that because you're going to get energy that now you should not be eating utilize that energy for something constructive. Make sure you eat and you get the energy so that you can fulfill Salah so that you can engage in that which will please Allah so don't make a cheap excuse to say because I

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

Going to get energetic. That's why I don't want to eat at all. No. Remember my brothers and sisters, what Allah has made halaal can never be bad, but the way we consume it might be bad. I'm sure you've heard doctors say that meat is bad. That statement is inaccurate. Red Meat is not bad, the way you eat, it might be bad, maybe you've eaten too much in your life. So now it's bad for you. But that doesn't make it bad. Your system would not have it anymore, perhaps because your cholesterol is too high. Perhaps for some other reason. That doesn't make the food bad. It makes the consumption of it for you, perhaps not good because of how you've been eating it all along. I always give an example

00:20:42--> 00:21:04

of Ramadan, you know, when you have power, and people see all the savories what happens? You have one samosa and before you know it 10 are already inside. Because you've been hungry and then you start feeling sick, and then you don't know what to do. And then you start burping and then you start disturbing the muscles and everything starts happening and you don't realize that it was samosa not bad. The way you ate them was very bad.

00:21:06--> 00:21:34

It's just one example. It's come to my mind, my brothers and sisters, but it's a reality. Don't call the food bad. You ate 20 that is only to taste you're supposed to have one and that's enough. Perhaps, you know, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us when you're sitting with red meat, perhaps you might have a few grams and it's over. But if you're going to eat a whole leg, and then you're not going to, you know have high cholesterol. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to balance in everything. You eat something you balanced, you drink you balance.

00:21:35--> 00:21:40

You go somewhere you balance and May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding. I mean,

00:21:42--> 00:21:46

then we have another beautiful narration in Muslim dilemma met by Abu huraira the Allahu anhu.

00:21:48--> 00:22:21

In fact, before I make mention of this previous narration that I spoke about, as in halal and haram, there were several incidents that occurred, not just one, I only mentioned one, but there was another one where a few people went to the wives of the Prophet salla salaam. And they asked about his a Bader, and when they found out he worships a lot, then they decided one says, I'm not going to eat meat, the other one says, I'm not going to marry and so on. So this verse is also connected to that way. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam explained to them that no, I am the most God fearing from amongst you, but I've married and I eat meat, and I have struck the balance and so on. So that is

00:22:21--> 00:22:37

also part and parcel of the narrations made mention of when it comes to that earlier verse number 88, or sort of metadata. As for this narration, in Muslim, Ahmed, by Abu huraira, Allah Allah, it's very deep and very interesting, and it's going to be very long. So let's listen to it carefully.

00:22:39--> 00:23:22

It's connected to the prohibition of alcohol. There was a time when the Mexicans and the mushrikeen in Mecca and even the people of Medina, they love their beers and their wines and their alcohol and they were drinking so much they had businesses which were flourishing, because they were making and selling alcohols and wines and so many different types of intoxicants, that was their life. So Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to prohibit wanted to prohibit alcohol. So what happened is in Madina munawwara there were certain people who never ever drunk because they knew that this thing is very bad from amongst them. The prophet SAW Selim himself never ever, Ababa Casa de la never ever knew

00:23:22--> 00:24:03

this thing. It makes people mad. It takes their mind away, the difference between us and animal is the brain and the posture. So why should we take away this gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So there were others who happen to be drinking, like Omar will hop and a few others. And he always used to say, oh, Allah, send us a clear cut ruling regarding alcohol. He always used to say this, because he knew that something needs to come, it cannot be that we are believers meaning and we are drinking and there's nothing wrong with it. And you know, we are becoming drunk. So he always used to say, oh, Allah send us a clear cut ruling regarding alcohol. This generation of Abu huraira the Allahu

00:24:03--> 00:24:19

anhu he says right at the beginning, the people used to drink and some people ask the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. about alcohol and about gambling. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed vs. Yes, aluna can in summary when

00:24:21--> 00:24:25

they are asking you about alcohol and about gambling

00:24:26--> 00:24:30

bulfin Hema is Gabby Oh.

00:24:34--> 00:24:35

What is Mama?

00:24:37--> 00:25:00

Mama, tell them that in it. There is good and there is bad. But the bad is much more than the good. So people understood a lot of people understood this means it's something very bad. So a lot of them quit. They quit it. Because if I were to tell you look, Brother, you can strike this deal, but I want to tell you, it has goodness in it as evil. There is a lot more evil than the good. What would why

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

men do. He would tell you listen, quit just like cigarettes my brothers and sisters quit. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us minimum you can say is the evil is far more than anything else.

00:25:12--> 00:26:03

So what happened is, after some time, there was an incident where the Sahaba of the Align home found people reading their Salah, and they were making mistakes, because if the person was intoxicated, and he's reading Salah, and instead of reading a verse, He changes it, it becomes blasphemous. So Allah subhanho wa Taala then revealed the second stage what was the second stage? Yeah, I knew Hello Lavina malamala de Cabo sala de la Tom suka De La MaMa dot O you who believe do not come close to salah and prayer. If you are in the state of intoxication until you become sober and you know what you're saying. Beautiful. So now more people cut alcohol more people and they started disliking it

00:26:04--> 00:26:26

and the business started going down because now the market you know demand and supply if the demand is not so grand the supply begins to dwindle, prices begin to drop the businessmen become upset. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us so they only had a little bit of time to drink because and that was in the morning mostly because you eat your salad. Who's going to drink after Salah?

00:26:28--> 00:26:37

And then after all you waiting for us or after us we're waiting for motherly optimality waiting for Asia perhaps after Isha May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us thereafter

00:26:39--> 00:27:19

there came an incident and this incident is made mention of biocides if not your castle, the alarm on the inside a Muslim. He says I was with a group of Mahajan and unsought and they were in a little garden in the outskirts of Madina munawwara and they told me when they saw me that come, let's sit down and let's eat and drink and you know, let's serve a bit of alcohol and let's enjoy. So they sat down and they started drinking and eating and a few of them became drunk and the discussion ensued. And you know what, they had a head of a camera which was roasted like bright, like you know, on the spirit and they were busy with the tongue and busy with everything else and you know, that was their

00:27:19--> 00:27:56

culture and up to this day Mashallah, it continues especially in the Middle East, you know, you see the animal is already roasted completely. And you find the head is also there roasted, and they're enjoying it. Mashallah. So, the discussion began and people started arguing who is better the answer, or the Mahajan? The people of maca or the people of Medina society cannot be honest. As I said, the people of Mecca Mahajan are far better. So one man got up and beat me up. And he says he struck me on my nose and there was a gash there was always a gash on the nose of Saudi Arabia,

00:27:57--> 00:28:10

even later on, so he hit me and he was drunk. And he says I went later on to the messenger sallallahu Sallam and complained and verses were revealed. Yeah, are you hella Vina man Oh,

00:28:11--> 00:28:14

verse number 1991 of pseudotumor either

00:28:15--> 00:28:16

in MLM

00:28:19--> 00:28:27

sob Saba well as Nando de su Mina, Manisha on fujitani, buena lecanto.

00:28:30--> 00:28:44

O you who believe Allah makes mention of several items from amongst them, alcohol, and gambling and so on. And the last reason what not, Allah says these are abomination from the handiwork of the devil. So stay far away from it.

00:28:46--> 00:29:24

In order that you may succeed, if you don't stay far from it, you will not succeed. Now, some people think that well Allah told us to stay away from it. He didn't say it's Haram. If Allah tells you to stay away from something, it means it is even more haram than him saying it's Haram. I give you an example. When it comes to adultery, Allah says Allah tala bozena don't even go close to it. Does that mean oh that's not Haram. It means Don't even start because once you start, that's if you will carry on and on you become hooked and addicted. The same applies to alcohol and intoxicants. Once you start, what happens you become an addict. May Allah forgive us. May Allah grant ease to those

00:29:24--> 00:29:37

who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. May Allah help you and may Allah subhanho wa Taala help you remember that you need to have the willpower as well. And you need to make sure that you want to help yourself, ask a lot help and guidance and be strong. I mean,

00:29:38--> 00:29:44

so the verses continue the next verse, Allah says, In Merida shavon

00:29:45--> 00:29:51

rabina como la da da da, da. I feel new and amazing. Why else would

00:29:53--> 00:29:54

you want

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

to move

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

Indeed shavon What does he want? He wants to create hatred and enmity amongst you.

00:30:08--> 00:30:48

And he wants to lead you away from the remembrance of Allah and from Salah. So will you not leave it? Will you not quit the Sahaba say when we heard this verse we all said into hyena into hyena we have quitted. We have pretty sad in the long run who has made mention of this, but there is an even more interesting narration and that narration is the integration of a bottle hat in fact, it is the narration Mustafa finale of Anna cinematically Allahu anhu. He says I was the one who was pouring the alcohol the day and I was in the house of Abu talhah. He used to have so much of stock of alcohol and do you know what? A cola called out saying? Allah in America?

00:30:49--> 00:31:28

Indeed, alcohol has been made heroin. He says the people spat it out and a bottle he looked at me and said pour it. They didn't say who said wait, I don't believe you. It's not true. Let's find out for ourselves. Let's go and check your check there. Someone called out saying it's banned. Alas, it's over. The story is over. They said throw it out. A bottle has entire stock was thrown out and all the stocks of a lot of the people of Medina menorah so much so that it is reported on that day. Some of the galleys of Medina were flowing with this haram substance known as alcohol because they were the ones who surrendered. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam read the verse for hell and to

00:31:28--> 00:31:49

monta Hoon, are you going to leave it? They all said we've lifted we've lifted into hyena into our marble hopper The lavon was so delighted on that day when he heard it, he said into into into into the same thing. And so Anna Sydney, medical of the law man who makes mention of this, and voila, he my brothers and sisters, there is a beautiful question that arose.

00:31:50--> 00:32:12

They said here at the house of obatala that you know, there were some people who have already drunk they had alcohol in their bellies and they died What about them? Now it's been made prohibited. So Allah revealed another verse, verse number 93, Nyasaland Latina mela mela Sani hottie Juna female Primo either matamanoa mellow Sonic

00:32:15--> 00:32:55

Matata Watson, Allahu hipbone mazzini Allah says, There is no blame on those who have drunk before those who tasted it before for as long as now they don't the rules change now. Now they don't Allah says those who did good after they turned to Allah thereafter they obeyed the commands of Allah thereafter.
