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

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah we're going to continue with sudo to put a lot this is Surah number 49 in the Quran, and we suggest that you open up a must have or perhaps your phone or a laptop where you can actually follow one with the ayah. And we're going to take a short look at nine to 18 today that we left off last week at nine to 18.

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

This soda is cold.

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

Of course it has rocked windows.

00:00:32--> 00:00:34

Good so it will add up and Serato

00:00:38--> 00:00:57

What are Davina? manners, your etiquette? So it's about manners. It's about etiquette about morals. And if you were to look at these Ayad that's exactly what it is about. So if you had to summarize this sort of one word, it will be character. But there's another word you can use to summarize, sorta, we mentioned that last week, what is it?

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

Think of how it starts and how Allah dresses the believers.

00:01:07--> 00:01:19

Okay, good. So what's the one word? Yeah, believers minion. Yes. Amen. So if you had to summarize the surah would be as you said the word manners and Eman what's the connection between manners any man?

00:01:22--> 00:02:03

That's right, true man is having high morals and character that's what a man is. A man isn't just saying I'm on the hook bro and slapping each other with fatawa and making tequila in the whole world. No treatment means having good colors and character based on the surah for example allows with such a Latina Amano LA to cut them Albania de la hora de la Vina Amano letter fast what the focus of the Navy in a comfortable manner with a W a valid in a manner which can evoke a theorem in a mano a mano EMA in other words if you have a man These are your characteristics having a love and this goes hand in hand with the Hadith what is the Hadith are commanded meaning in a manner those

00:02:03--> 00:02:10

believers who are most perfect in regards to the man whom those who fast every second day, pray all night

00:02:11--> 00:02:12

whatever it

00:02:13--> 00:02:42

is, I know whom who loca they have the best character. That's true man. Not a guru but every single second of the day, as I saw another video about this today. Well, it's just entertaining now. This is becoming ridiculous. This isn't a solo didn't do this. So Hubbard didn't do this. He didn't. Doesn't any man doesn't require that of you. You need to literally Yani prove your Eman every single moment of the day by saying I just believe in Tahoe

00:02:44--> 00:02:51

aloha Mustang so this is what true character is all about. So let's go straight into the sorta your nine

00:02:52--> 00:03:00

now we looked at after manners with her the sort of setup with manners with Allah then manners with Rasulullah their manners with

00:03:01--> 00:03:05

evildoers. Yeah for Cirque why them before believers what they believe is a better

00:03:08--> 00:03:11

what happens if you don't deal with these people properly?

00:03:12--> 00:03:36

The court of law cause a lot of corruption fitna right, big problems can come in jack confessor from whenever in fact obiano make it clear when you receive news from them, verify it so a lot put them first not because the facades are better than the believers but because of the dangers that can come forth if you don't watch out and how you deal with them. So now it's now matters with the believer start with i&i will employ fatality, meaning meaning

00:03:37--> 00:04:18

if two parties from among the believers fight, what type of fighting is this? verbal? No, they are literally on the battlefield, or they could sell on the battlefield literally. Even though believers are fighting and this could happen unless it in if, if in other words, there's a possibility it could happen, that if they are fighting, or they could fall or is one of the parties for No, I love call them believers meaning meaning, showing you that even if you fight in jihad, your brothers even if you go to warfare, you are still considered believers, not even just Muslim and as Allah said, meaning a man but unfortunately what do we see today? We see groups factions overseas, to mention

00:04:18--> 00:04:54

names, but we know what's happening. Groups making the fear of other believers literally making the field Why? Because they fighting us. Allah said no, even if you're fighting, you are still believers. And the highest level of difference is to fight literally that's the highest level of difference. Any other difference fools beneatha sure, arguing difference of opinion dismissed against that mustard and that mark is against that much markers and that she's against not sure if any other difference falls beneath that. Yet Allah still called us believers even if we're fighting. In other words, any other difference that occurs between you and your brother, you still consider

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

him your brother, still. Any other difference that occurs Allahu Akbar. Unfortunately today

00:05:01--> 00:05:07

Young people have literally boycotted their brothers and make fun of them over meet differences in film.

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

or meet differences in ft laughs

00:05:12--> 00:05:46

So allows me jellies teaching us here the manners with each other. So what happens if there's a fight for us? Leo obey? No Homer, Allah says, then reconsolidate that's the first thing you do. That's the first step is that you reconcile? In other words, if they're fighting not, okay, which side? Do I join in? No, you reconcile. That's the first step. Step one, Allah says, For us, and this is a command. It's a command from Allah reconcile between your brothers. And this is something that we find also in the sooner we know, lying generally is not allowed. Sure. But there are three instances in which lying is not considered lying. And one of them is what?

00:05:47--> 00:06:25

Yeah, to reconcile between your brothers and your sisters, for example, let's just say Mohammed Abdullah had an argument now with a bill. I gotta say, okay, Muhammad Abdullah, he said, he loves you for the sake of Allah, He wants to reconsider. When Abdullah didn't say anything of the sort. And I go along, I say the same thing. I feel sorry for what he did. And he doesn't want to fight anymore. But he didn't say anything. In other words, I'm basically making it up. That's allowed. Why to reconcile because there's a greater purpose here, greater purpose. So my dear brothers if we are to lie, in order to bring people together, why do we insist on speaking the truth to divide?

00:06:26--> 00:06:40

True how many brothers I'm going to say the huckberry and I don't care what the consequences are, how do we know that the wrong mentality to have in the DNA will lead to lie to bring people together? Why do you insist on speaking the truth to separate and divide? Because a listener will Jamaica listener will

00:06:41--> 00:06:47

literally feel the opposite to the via no united we stand and divided before

00:06:48--> 00:07:30

and then allows me to just says for him buffet there, Homer 42, let eatable he had that umbrella, if one of them transgresses against the other? What do you do? fight them Allison McCarthy law law didn't say for Cthulhu kill them. He said to fight them fighting. In other words, this is a type of fighting. That shouldn't result in killing a lot of others. It is teaching us the adage, even in warfare, even when you're going to war with your brothers. There's still manners, there's still justice there. And that's why as the end, we'll have to see to be just in the law, you have one more thing Allah loves those who are just so even when you get to fighting, and that's something which is

00:07:30--> 00:08:11

very difficult to do. When there's animosity. When you know, tempers are raging and so forth is very hard to be just even when you have an argument with your spouse true, very hard to be just, but this is where true justice is highlighted. Not every time you have an argument or divorce takes place. Get out of the house. You kick her out, and you throw the luggage out the window just like we see in the movies. No alarm teaches us in the opening area to football out loud to hurry johannah mean boo Tina, don't drive the women out out of your homes. He said their homes they have a right to the house as well. Even in divorce, do they stay? Yes, even in divorce. You and the wife stay in the

00:08:11--> 00:08:35

same house habibie y la la la. You disobeyed the delicate Amala perhaps Allah may bring about a different matter, meaning reconcile. This is the Sharia the noble Sharia. Look how beautiful it is. And I know people have actually got divorced, they applied. This is what happened, though back together after just one day of hamdulillah was really teaching us these things. In fact, we're going to take sort of folexin very important.

00:08:36--> 00:08:47

And even if you're not married, then it's good for you. It's basically your only preparation and if you're a newlywed like MK here, then hamdulillah even better for others is still considered newlyweds. Mashallah.

00:08:49--> 00:09:15

So Allah azza wa jal is teaching us, first and foremost to reconsider next step, kill and slaughter next step is fight why had that fear umbrella until it comes back to the armor? The command of a law in other words, the objective of fighting is to do what to come back to Islam so people can come back to their senses, and it shows us beautiful mikaze to Sharia, the aims and objectives of the Sharia.

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

Surely Allah has noble aims noble objectives and if you look at any i o any Hadith,

00:09:26--> 00:09:45

basically a lot of General has revealed it. Allah azza wa jal has prescribed it and ordained it to meet one of these aims. What are they number one laws of God wants to protect what the main thing religion since the deed as the main aim of the Sharia law is to preserve it next.

00:09:47--> 00:09:47

Life

00:09:49--> 00:09:49

three

00:09:52--> 00:09:55

Yeah, you could say dignity or honor

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

for

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

your intellect

00:10:02--> 00:10:07

loves to protect your mind. What else? Your wills beautiful,

00:10:08--> 00:10:08

and

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

your offspring.

00:10:15--> 00:10:22

If you look at any ayah, any Hadith falls under one of these noble aims. For example, you're not allowed to.

00:10:23--> 00:10:40

You're not allowed to curse the Prophet. Why? Because by cursing the messenger, now you're harming the integrity of the message so as to protect the religion. Also, the Sharia wants to preserve life, which is why in my law to kill people, right, innocent civilians, also preserve the dignity by

00:10:42--> 00:10:47

making slander and backbiting prohibited acid. How does the dean preserve intellect?

00:10:48--> 00:11:22

By making alcohol drugs in a toxic it's how long? Because when people take intoxicants, it ruins the mind will and it can also of course, have your dignity and honor right when you start acting like literally an imbecile on the street wealth. Which is why gambling is how long rivers how long theft is how long protects people's well. And offspring, Xena said so you look at any command in the Quran or in the Sunnah. It's to protect one or at times even more of those things, more of those aims. So Allah azza wa jal here is telling us to fight why,

00:11:23--> 00:12:05

although even by fighting, perhaps life is compromised, but Allah wants to protect the integrity of the religion. Well, hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. And just to show you the justice of the idea that when the fitna occurred between Ali and Maui and the time of the, you know, the turbine and Sahaba, it's called the hospital or Moroccan German, was mentioned that side, Mr. Wang said, during the Battle of a German, a man from the party of IE, from his basically side of man from the party Valley, cried out that day saying, those who fights are not to be killed. Why? Because they mean they still believe is not confirmed. They're not to be killed, if they surrender do not harm them.

00:12:06--> 00:12:48

If they flee, they don't chase them down to kill them. If they throw down their weapons do not harm them as well. If they're injured, do not kill them do not harm them or this is a great opportunity to take advantage not allowed. If a person enters a house for refuge and safety, and allowed to go in and have to be harmed. There are women and children are not to be taken as prisoners of war. And their wealth is sacred, not to be taken as aneema not to be taken as spoils Also, look at the Justice even when you find the believers. Look at these beautiful yani etiquettes and guidelines that we have in Islam are hamdulillah if only the groups and the factions that are fighting overseas

00:12:48--> 00:13:02

would apply these ideas and thoughts he used this ayah as his delille this was the right one. So those who transgress our code elbow elbow based on this if in Baja Houma, bhava is to transgress.

00:13:04--> 00:13:05

Let's go to a attend now.

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

in Malmo, manana is what

00:13:10--> 00:13:28

allows we just had no doubt about it. The believers are brothers. Now the word in them, what does it do in Arabic, it's called a slow house Yes, to constrict or restrict a matter when you read in them or in an IRA or Hadith. It means exclusivity.

00:13:38--> 00:14:16

Nothing more, nothing less, it restricts the matter. In other words, if you had to describe the believers with one word, you'll say brothers, and when we say, brothers, it also includes sisters. And that's how Arabic is the male pronouns include the females, whereas in Arabic, women are so special, they have their own pronouns, like who know it can only refer to females, you can say, who know for a group of males, you can say home for males and females together. That's the beauty. So when we say brotherhood, it means sisterhood, as well. But as we just said, innama In other words, no doubt about it, nothing more, nothing less they are about brothers. In other words, it's

00:14:16--> 00:14:56

exclusive to the believers. In other words, the kuffar that don't have this band of brotherhood that we have, and they're not included in this brotherhood. And that's why you're not allowed to call it effort, brother. I have my brother Yeah, no, no, no, no, no. And this is you find another is a lot talked about Zakat sort of the Toba a 60. He said in the midst of the court, so the court he is referring to the cat a lawsuit in NEMA, meaning this is a cat is given exclusively to her. These recipients that Allah mentioned in this ayah because he started within them. Also the Hadith, in embrace to live with me Mama Karim Allah Allah Azza wa sallam cinema, he said exclusively I've been

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

sent for this purpose. What is it to perfect good manners.

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

I've only been sent it's exclusive in my borst have only been sent except to perfect good manners. So that's the beauty of a law saying in them I mean on f1 and Allah didn't say in Malmo, Munich Cal, what does Calico mean? Yeah, like brothers, I was gonna say we are like brothers. He said, We are brothers we're not like, and sometimes you can say like to emphasize a relationship, you can say for an acid, or he's like a lion.

00:15:30--> 00:15:56

But if I remove the calf, there, he is a lion that's even more powerful. So allows us to demonstrate. And to show you the closeness alarm still connected the word mean on and if we're in Milan, if we're there right next to each other in the eye indicate how close we are. That's how close Allahu Akbar even if fighting occurs, which allows you to just mentioned that the connection, even if you fighting is still brothers.

00:15:58--> 00:16:08

Sometimes you find just money, dollars since paper gets between brothers, sometimes from their own family law. homestand. And they don't talk for years on end.

00:16:09--> 00:16:09

Amazing.

00:16:12--> 00:16:20

Now the beauty of this ayah Lazarus is in them and mostly known for us lubaina hawaiki. What's the common translation? They believe is our brothers. So

00:16:23--> 00:16:58

So reconsider between your brothers. Yes, but a lot didn't say for us little bainer wetiko. He didn't say reconsider between your brothers. He said, a hallway come between your two brothers. Interesting. Allah started by talking about the plural. He says the believers are what? Brothers Yeah, brother. Is that a plural word? Sure. His brother's plural. Then he said, reconcile between. Now your brothers who say between your two brothers? Whoa, Aiko, a Hawaiian and a Hawaiian Arabic means within that jewel? What were the lager from plural? To jewel?

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

That's what I'm going to teach you.

00:17:02--> 00:17:04

Yes. What about it? You understand?

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

Perhaps good.

00:17:10--> 00:17:11

Looking for particular answer.

00:17:14--> 00:17:49

Our laws really showing us if you have to reconcile between two people. In other words, if reconciling between two people is an important ally mentioned, imagine when there's problems between more than two people. Imagine when there's problems between a community or groups of people. And that's even Ola that's even more of a priority allows you to saying even if there's two people reconcilable imagine when the problems are so big and so much bigger than that. That we find that today big problems between this mustard and that mustard Oh, this community against that allows Joel is Rican telling us to reconcile between two if there's disputes upon law.

00:17:51--> 00:18:21

So how much more if the disputes are among a whole society. And this was mentioned, while cost me in his Tafseer. At first, he mentioned his beautiful point of Arabic in East Africa. But what's amazing, is that he said he took it from as a machete. In other words, he didn't claim it for himself. He said, I took this point of lava from as a machete. He was of course a famous scholar of Arabic, showing you he's a philosopher. He could have just said, hey, look what I've come up with. For many people today, they take something they put on Facebook, I set it.

00:18:23--> 00:18:48

Copyright. Basically, it doesn't exist. But he could have just claimed that point to himself. But rather he said he took it from him actually, from he shaved, in other words, learning from the past. So it teaches us that if you want better Kenyan knowledge, then the scholar said, attribute that knowledge to what you took from. This is something that the scholar said, a low bless your knowledge because you're honest about it. Not just trying to say things to become famous in front of the people, and also shows you taqwa.

00:18:49--> 00:19:14

Allah ended this ayah by saying what the color have Taqwa of Allah. In other words, when you dispute have Taqwa don't transgress. Allah just says Allah Allah come to Harmon perhaps you may gain mercy. In other words, if you want mercy from Allah, then show any compassion and good character with your brothers. Even taymiyah said Brotherhood in Islam is like the hands in the eyes.

00:19:15--> 00:19:25

He said when the it is the hand wipes it away. And when the hand is injured, the it is beautiful relationship.

00:19:26--> 00:19:45

Even taymiyah said again, the brother the parable of brotherhood is like the relationship between the hands and the eyes. Brotherhood is like the hands on the eyes. When you cry, what do the hands do? But But away and when your hand is injured, what other eyes do they wait boy, they cry.

00:19:47--> 00:19:50

Beautiful point mentioned by Amy

00:20:05--> 00:20:12

Unfortunately today we've done the opposite. We're using our hands to cause our brothers to cry, punch ups.

00:20:17--> 00:20:21

And we wonder why Allah is not giving us victory. Maybe because we're not applying these ayat.

00:20:24--> 00:20:30

Now I 11 and 12 Allah azza wa jal goes on to mention further qualities of brotherhood.

00:20:32--> 00:20:37

Now, these are things that we need to avoid now, so I 11 and 12

00:20:40--> 00:20:48

a lot of agendas. Interestingly, he mentioned six traits, six traits you need to avoid

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

what's the first i 11?

00:20:55--> 00:21:01

mocking I said yeah, even leadin amarula yes or comment on that? No, I people mock another.

00:21:02--> 00:21:09

Sometimes you might read scoff depending on the translation where we're going to explain what this means. Just quickly what are the 61st is mocking second

00:21:11--> 00:21:13

that's included in mocking

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

we're gonna mention

00:21:19--> 00:21:25

while I tell me to enforce a calm accent, and Do not insult one another to common translation, avoid insulting

00:21:27--> 00:21:28

while at an Abu

00:21:29--> 00:21:38

bill club next is do not give each other offensive nicknames. These are things you need to avoid fourth, next is

00:21:39--> 00:21:40

h denovo.

00:21:42--> 00:21:43

Kathy Roman have one What's one

00:21:45--> 00:21:49

perfect suspicion so the next thing you need to avoid? point for

00:21:52--> 00:21:56

next, spying? Well, that's just so beautiful. They're not spy?

00:21:58--> 00:22:01

And finally, what is the bow bow bow bow bow?

00:22:02--> 00:22:03

Do not

00:22:04--> 00:22:05

back by River.

00:22:13--> 00:22:16

No, it's amazing. The perfect symmetry of this is

00:22:18--> 00:22:28

the perfect symmetry of this ayat. I 11 is the first three I 12. Next three, beautiful, yes. And the first three

00:22:29--> 00:22:37

are trades done in the person's presence while they're there. And the next three are done in the person's absence.

00:22:39--> 00:22:45

subpanel a beautiful symmetry, you see that? The first three done while the person is there is present.

00:22:46--> 00:22:55

He can hear you can see you and the next Ray, avoid these things, even when your brothers are not there in the absence amazing, beautiful symmetry.

00:22:59--> 00:23:01

And how do they both start both at

00:23:02--> 00:23:05

the same way? Yeah. beautiful, amazing.

00:23:06--> 00:23:47

The arguments of the Quran is so cohesive. So articulate, eloquent, and they just match perfectly. So let's now break these traits down layers for comovement calm once again, I'll start with air man you have imagined and don't do this. This is not befitting of a movement to mock other people. So layers are calm and calm Do not let people mock another group. Now the word yes called is connected to the word Sahara, the Sahara. And Sahara basically means to subjugate to make subordinate under you, basically something that you can control also, because when you can control it, you're on top right. You're dominating. And that's why you say that drought when you travel, what is it? So

00:23:47--> 00:24:27

pandologic Sahar, Elena Harada perfect is he Allah, huzzah hora, Lana, Heather, who's made this. You subjugated this base or subjugated this vehicle for us is basically made subordinate for us, underneath us, basically, underneath our control. So allow us whole sub Sahara, Sahara, Sahara, all those words in Arabic that share the same letters and when whichever it is they share meanings. There's basically the poor people beneath you. Basically, you're on top of them. You think everyone's subordinate to you, you get out of them. And so a larger is taken care of No, don't do that. The only time you should look down upon someone is when you're giving them a helping hand.

00:24:27--> 00:24:43

That's the only time you look down when you're hoping someone up literally. Why allows you to assess perhaps that grip your mocking is better than you. In other words, a lot of people may forgive their ignorance but not your arrogance. And that's worse

00:24:44--> 00:24:56

than Allah mentions what Anissa amin Nyssa and neither a group of women Mark another group of women. What are the laws which I mentioned women, when he said do you have the denominator which cludes believers men and women?

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

Yes, perhaps women

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

Do this Allah essence, however, the scholars gave another interpretation

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

which is more to the woman's needs so that I get hurt.

00:25:10--> 00:25:42

Yes, this does happen a lot with women, but also to protect the women because women tend to be more sensitive. Whereas a lot of the men are more thick skinned. Sure. He said that about me. Haters gonna hate me, let's go get something to eat. Right? Who cares? But women get very sensitive when you speak about them. You mock them a lot of jellies mentioning women Why? To basically tend to their needs because Allah knows how they are. He created them. They're very sensitive. And you've seen this for those who are married especially or those who have sisters, you know that women are very sensitive. So Allah didn't just mentioned women, because it happens a lot with them to put them

00:25:42--> 00:25:51

down can lower labor laws which I mentioned the women also to protect the honor to protect their emotions as well because they tend to get very emotional and they're sensitive.

00:25:53--> 00:25:54

But is it

00:25:55--> 00:25:58

true even when you say good words, sometimes you compliment them? What do you mean?

00:26:01--> 00:26:06

You say Mashallah, you know, the hijab suits you or you show no it doesn't suit me that's why you're complimenting me if I did you want to say anything?

00:26:07--> 00:26:17

Don't think too much This suits you. So that's the beauty of Allah mentioning the woman after mentioning the believers in general. Then Allah says

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

what I tell him is

00:26:21--> 00:26:25

commonly transmitted Do not insult one another the word Tell me Zoo came from lambs.

00:26:27--> 00:26:31

lambs. Now where have you heard this word lumps? Think of JSON.

00:26:33--> 00:26:47

Sent loom as a way to liquidity home as a tea loom as a lump here, basically also inserted in homosassa. Ally's talking about the slanderers those you mark, those who insult right now, what's the difference between lambs and hams?

00:26:50--> 00:26:52

lumps is direct.

00:26:53--> 00:26:56

Well, lems is indirect.

00:26:58--> 00:27:00

That's a difference. hems is direct.

00:27:01--> 00:27:11

Cotton, lucky man because a 123 direct, whereas lambs is indirect. So indirect can be of two forms, it can be literally via shot signals.

00:27:13--> 00:27:15

Or it can be indirect via speech.

00:27:18--> 00:27:23

Now, which is worse, the hums or the lems, direct or indirect, which is worse?

00:27:24--> 00:27:26

That's worse. Why?

00:27:27--> 00:28:07

Because when it's direct, people can figure it out. And people can interpret it, right? It's very clear, he meant this if it's known, but when it's indirect, everyone can interpret it, how they deem fit, how they understood the situation, to say, as a human made this, no, he made this and other person says, No, he made that another person comes to him and all of it. Right? So the scholars said lumps is 1000 times worse than hems lambs is worse, right? Because when people just interpret as they want, and then it goes on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, social media, and you have Android interpretations, and it just blows out of proportion. Right. As for signals a shout out, you know,

00:28:07--> 00:28:09

people just basically hand signals or body language.

00:28:11--> 00:28:13

Right? That's that's lumps, you know,

00:28:15--> 00:28:59

you know, look, kind of a walk. Ooh, that's lumps. That's right. That's the number three actions, right? Are some of the rolling of the eyes and a scoffing, alright, and as the speech was mentioned, this is one of the reasons for its Revelation, this area, however, the narration is weak, its weak. But even though it's weak, it gives you an indication of what lambs is that two Sahaba had a difference, and one of them sit to sit to the other. Yep, no fool Anna. Oh, son of a woman. Now, did he say something wrong? According to Arabic son of a woman? No, we're all sons of a woman. True. The fact that you're born, you have a mother. So as you're either Melissa. Sure. So he said, Son of a

00:28:59--> 00:29:13

woman, everyone's a son of a woman. True. But in Arabic, you don't say even Filipina, you say even uilleann son of so and so in other words, you give it the male you don't give it the female. When you say even for Nana use the female. It's like you're saying a son of Xena.

00:29:14--> 00:29:45

That's the implication there. So you're saying your mother is this and your mother is that so it has many implications that that's lums. So basically, basically when people do that the indirect but they imply something. Right? And that's basically worse than hums, as we said, because people can get and interpreted as they wish and sometimes you find brothers do this. They're in a crowd with other brothers. And I said what about such and such so and so people who do 123 and the guys right there? Okay, why do you have to expose the brother now man other mentioned his name deroy.

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

Okay, you don't have to mention his name we all know he was talking about does not happen happens a lot. I think I mentioned his name, but he he might as well have in fact, if he did mention his name would have been better. would have been better.

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

So that's what I tell me so and full circle. Now why did the law say and do not insult and fullcycle yourselves a law as a wizard crusade? Well, I tell me suhara come, then so others. What do you say yourselves?

00:30:14--> 00:30:54

When you insult your brothers and sisters, it's as if you're insulting yourself as the beauty of a lottery saying Do not insult yourselves. Now would anyone look into the mirror start cursing and assaulting and mocking her Dumbo your big ears? Right? No, you wouldn't. Literally just our how idiotic that is. Likewise, this is silly to insult your brothers. That's what allows really telling us and I need to back this up the Hadith the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam said, al momento murottal movement, the believer is the mirror of his believing brother, literally you like mirrors to one another, just as you wouldn't saw yourself in the mirror, then saw your brothers. And another

00:30:54--> 00:30:58

interpretation, another gem, the scholars extracted from this part. What that tells me

00:31:00--> 00:31:22

is that when you saw others, it's an indication of yourself, in other words, your own disease that when you resort to when you resort to sorry, insulting, mocking, swearing, that's an indication of your heart because the tongue reveals what the heart conceals. So as the saying goes, what people say about you, is a reflection of them, not you. So keep doing what you do.

00:31:23--> 00:31:50

That's why once armor armor even obeyed, was insulted. so bad. He's might come up to me said Man, I feel sorry for you. He goes Why? He's I feel sorry for you about what the people are saying about you. He said, Do you hear me saying anything about them in return? He said no. He said it's them. You should feel sorry for not me. feel sorry for their corrupt souls. They're the ones who are swearing and insulting feel sorry for them. Not me, my brother to be positive.

00:31:52--> 00:32:01

Then our other witnesses, one at NAB. So when you don't give yourselves bad nicknames with alcohol from lockup, yeah. In other words, a bad nickname and offensive nickname.

00:32:02--> 00:32:33

Even if that person smiling right her to badnik family smiling, laughing in the crowd, maybe smiling on the outside, we don't know what's on the inside. So they give each other bad names. So if a person has a nickname, and they don't like it, you're not allowed to call them by that name. Not allowed. For example, one of the brothers was called so and so to it. Right? He didn't like that name. And a lot of call him as one brothers called a blue drink. Because he loves drink. There was drinking alcohol hamdulillah he's always drinking juice and this soft drink and that's offering they called the apple drinker. I bouchareb actually drink soda.

00:32:35--> 00:32:37

As long as there is a mushroom because that means alcohol.

00:32:39--> 00:32:57

The point is if he doesn't like it, not allowed to call him. That's the point here. Then a law that says big selling small for Tsukuba, Allah, Allah mentioned for so why? Because these are characteristics of characteristics of evil people. In other words, you don't want to be offensive. Don't do these things.

00:32:58--> 00:33:14

Then a lot of this is bodily man. Allah azza wa jal said badly, man, why? These are things that can affect your image. That's what a larger deal is teaching us not that you become a gift. It's for the whiff. It's called the whiff. Basically, it's like a threat from a larger jail. He's warning us from this

00:33:15--> 00:33:29

allows will Nzs I 11. Woman mia tavola como Bali moon. Whoever does not repent. They are from the volume one. Allah mentioned two groups only. He didn't mention a third What does it indicate?

00:33:30--> 00:34:03

You're either in one or two camps. Not the camp of America for you will want to two camps either from the repentance or the oppresses woman let me atone for our lack of volume. In other words, there's no middle ground. And this is a beautiful point my shifts mentioned to me in Egypt. He said this is showing you you either repent or you're from the from the oppressors, no middle ground here. I a 12. Yeah, even the nominal, a detainee bucatini Ramadan, Allah says are you who believe avoid much suspicion that we're going to point for now.

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

In the absence of personnel around you start suspecting

00:34:10--> 00:34:15

Allah azza wa jal is telling us avoid much suspicion. He didn't say a word all suspicion, what does that teach you?

00:34:17--> 00:34:34

some suspicion is justified at times. Allah said avoid much. He didn't say avoid all right. He said avoid much. In other words, at times suspicion is justified. You come home for example, from work and you see something in the house that doesn't look right.

00:34:35--> 00:34:59

Perhaps now you've got reason to suspect or your child starts using very bad language all of a sudden, or you start hearing things from their room, maybe you know, music and stuff like that. Okay, what are they downloading? What are they watching? Right, so now you've got reason to suspect as a parent, that suspicion is justified, it's warranted. So generally speaking, do not suspect and I be suspicious of anyone, but at the same time, I'm Muslim is a naive

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

True, not naive, not gullible, you know, stupid and Muslim is wise men who fought in the profile is far too slim, the believer is wise. So if a gaffer is trying to harm you, right, and you can see that you can suspect something, then you have to be on guard. That's very important. But now going back to the general principle, avoid much suspicion. Why in Bhavani,

00:35:22--> 00:35:51

if I lost it because some of it is sinful, allows you to teaching us a very important concept. He said, avoid much suspicion because some is sinful, in other words, teaching us to avoid much to avoid a little lower part that is to taqwa to avoid much, much suspicion and avoid many things, just so you can protect yourself a little bit Allahu Akbar. That's the tomb of the true believer that one has true piety, any man

00:35:54--> 00:36:34

so these are all is connected to brotherhood. In other words, give your brothers and sisters 70 excuses as per the Hadith. Now the Hadith his wife, give your brother 70 excuses however, the meaning is correct, based on this ayah so the Hadith is life its wake however, the meaning is correct. Unfortunately, today we don't give our brothers and sisters 70 excuses. We find 70 reasons to blame. And the hypocrite looks for people's faults, while the belieber believer while the believer looks for people's excuses, that's a difference between them ownership and the moment. And Amara Delano said, as long as you can find some goodness, in the words of your brother, they do so

00:36:34--> 00:36:53

do so. In other words, if nine words out of the 10 seem bad, but just that one word, one word, you can make a good intention out of it. Then give your brother and sister the benefit of the doubt beautiful words of our model. And it's a shame that people will question all the good things they hear about you. But they will

00:36:54--> 00:37:21

believe all the bad they hear without a second thought. What a shame. Where are we from applying this yet? And just to show you how far the salaf went in applying this is about avoiding much suspicion. One of them said if I saw my brother on top of a mountain peak with his chest out arrogantly crying saying anaerobic common Allah I'm your Lord the Most High he said I would have said to myself he's reciting from certain nazjatar

00:37:23--> 00:37:30

so I'm not sure if he's always bothered you know literally screaming on top of his lungs I'm your Lord is saying he's resigning from the crown

00:37:31--> 00:37:42

and other ones said if I saw my brother holding a bottle of intoxicants Hummer alcohol our said to myself he was given that as a gift from a cafe and he's going to dispose it is going to get rid of

00:37:43--> 00:38:08

imagine we did that in fact first thing we do he take a photo put it online and put it on WhatsApp as well just for good measure just in case doesn't reach that many people follow who would do that. And if you saw your brother walk in and out of a pub for example. Give him shoes maybe he walked in by accident he was looking for a shop looking for a place right he went in or this is the wrong place if you saw him walking out of a pub or a club safety stuff you know he went in by accident

00:38:10--> 00:38:16

umbrella said come on bro even to the extent Yeah, yeah, bro. Give your brother an excuse. What is it?

00:38:18--> 00:38:23

Oh, is it a shocker? There you go. It's true. Either another See?

00:38:24--> 00:38:27

So what if I was walking through that shortcut the power button know

00:38:28--> 00:38:29

how busy is drinking?

00:38:32--> 00:39:05

You know and this happened to a shockable Aveda you know from Mia you know No. shatavari VEDA when he first came to Sydney, he was telling us the story. He was given a phone and because he couldn't speak English and in English, well, he didn't know how to use it. So by the color of a low and hamdulillah it starts to ring when he leaves the masjid is in the masjid. Having to lay the phone he didn't put it on silent, didn't know probably how to use it. He walked out of the masjid rang. And what type of ringtone was it? wasn't his music, but the most disgusting lyrics associated with that song? You know, like Eminem and Tupac right, swearing left, right and center. And every word is a

00:39:05--> 00:39:33

swear word. And it'll be weird if you heard a Tupac or Eminem song without us we would have been the default is the swearing literally, that's the lyrics wearing so he didn't know what it was. Oh, and he could hear the music is trying to think and a brotherhood it a brotherhood it you share what's going on? I guess what he has this song is very bad. You should hear the lyrics I didn't understand. Now imagine, imagine that brother will have dinner he didn't, you know, help the shareholders. Imagine he didn't have good suspicions. Imagine he had evil suspicions.

00:39:35--> 00:39:37

And he is listening to Tupac and m&m and

00:39:38--> 00:39:39

he's happy with

00:39:40--> 00:39:48

it guys puts it online. Once again, he was innocent. But it just shows you what could happen or could happen if you suspect your brothers.

00:39:50--> 00:40:00

Now, as we said, You're not gullible, you're not gullible, right. And I've told this to the system. So if there's good reason, it's obvious. There's something up then of course

00:40:00--> 00:40:25

Do you need to try and resolve the issue so if your husband comes home and he's got you know big red lipstick mark on his cheek we will you with the friend which friend right boyfriend or girlfriend right the boys then give you big juicy you know kisses right now that right on the left or on the check. So if there's like big lipstick here, something's up. So at the same time as we said a Muslim isn't gullible and naive.

00:40:26--> 00:40:34

Animal him. Next part was to just assume they're not spy another command. Now why did spying come after suspicion?

00:40:37--> 00:40:46

Perfect, because if you're suspicious, what do you do? Start spying. And it's even worse. That's even worse. You start spying or snooping around

00:40:48--> 00:41:00

now there's another pillar while at the house so there's one or two just so then there's one at the house so what's what's the hassle? also translated spying but it's spying using your his what's your his?

00:41:01--> 00:41:17

Your senses literally? Like your eyes, your ears, right? Using your senses. So you're looking that way by either way. All right. Let me start leaning. So sometimes right you're you're standing there and you're literally spying using the eyes. So

00:41:19--> 00:41:21

literally, just reading a person's email.

00:41:23--> 00:41:26

Don't use your senses. Don't use your senses, even to spying.

00:41:27--> 00:41:30

Allah says Yamaha in an argument what matters

00:41:31--> 00:41:33

a lot. Alan has a slight glances of the eye.

00:41:35--> 00:41:39

That's why you want to be pseudo than what the heart can see.

00:41:40--> 00:41:42

So what are the habits so don't even use your senses?

00:41:44--> 00:41:49

Very often. Yeah. Yeah, I am. Oh Ha in Italian

00:41:50--> 00:41:56

beautiful. Sometimes it happens driving using the rearview mirror to check out someone

00:41:57--> 00:42:01

you got sunglasses no lucky car as we're looking at we're really looking at we're

00:42:02--> 00:42:09

not allowed checking your wife's messages wife's email, how long not allowed? The scholar said, leave things as they are.

00:42:10--> 00:42:37

Do not go through and try to uncover the fault. Even if there are do not uncover them leave things as they are. So many problems, unnecessary problems. And I've heard well, like couples Tell me because you know, when you're in the community, and our people tell you my husband does this. My wife does this happens couples go through their you know, spouses, emails, messages not allowed, and probably happened based on nothing. A sister's asking a question. That is it. She thinks Hold on a second wife? No, that's not the case.

00:42:38--> 00:42:47

Do we have time for me to give a story on this? How long is the story? Three minutes, okay, we're nearly done then you can give it inshallah permission.

00:42:48--> 00:43:21

If this permission, that's no problem. And now when it comes to kids, you know, you don't spy as we said, Don't be a sticky, big nosy boy. But rather what you can do together for say, look, if they want email if they want an iPad to allow you to have one but on condition that I monitor. And I've got full access. Now. It's like he said, it's fine because you've told them but they've got you know, basically an iPad or they've got a computer and they're good kids. If your kids are good, they know all their pies. You've got no reason to spy you're not allowed to spy or no reason to inspect. You're not allowed the scholar said that we can add

00:43:25--> 00:43:43

Nice one. Let me check your email and a proofreader. Good one, that's a new one I have to mention that makes a while I have to come Baba, and do not back by each other the word Yo, yo, tab, sorry, from LIBOR. And LIBOR came from hype, what vibe?

00:43:44--> 00:43:56

unseen. In other words, while your brother or sister is not there, they're not seeing the absence that's LIBOR, so as to mention something about your brother or sister that they don't like in the absence in a void literally.

00:43:57--> 00:43:58

Now, what if it's true?

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

That's that is the definition of LIBOR. That is by definition of LIBOR if it's true, so yeah, look, I mentioned he's got a big nose because he does know that isn't LIBOR is the measure something that I like that I like it, not to mention it, whatever, if it's false. It's worse because it's slander now, so you didn't just do it in the absence you actually made something up. And that's called baudin. It's worse. So alausa now he goes on to mention a parable of those who backbite or your headboard hadn't come in yet. He made a character move with any of you like to eat the flesh of your dead brother, dead sister, you would hate to do so? Now that we just as you hate to eat literally,

00:44:38--> 00:44:56

the flesh of the corpse than hate backbiting. A brother once heard his friend talk ill of another. So we asked him randomly. How was your lunch today? He said lunch what lunch? He said the flesh of your dead brother. That lunch. You just dug into his mate and our three course meal.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

Mufti makes it something beautiful. That

00:45:00--> 00:45:15

To be written in gold, he said a sharp tongue, like a sharp knife can slice the best of relationships. He said, Remember, you can change your world by changing your word. True. You can literally change your relationship with people just by me words.

00:45:16--> 00:45:26

And the tongue by the brothers. How much does it weigh? A kilo? No, much less. It weighs practically nothing, but very few people can hold it.

00:45:27--> 00:45:40

How many people can hold their tongues? The default is that you should remain solid. Only we've got something nice to say you should speak and that's how I think my Mohammed was. He would not speak unless spoken to us how we should be.

00:45:42--> 00:46:02

Yeah, basically, it's how he was in the masjid he would say and I forgot to mention that in his biography, he wouldn't speak unless spoken to not ama scholar asked me a question. I'll give you a fetter. You wouldn't speak unless spoken to. And the profile so to Islam said, Whoever believes in the law in the law said let him speak good or remain silent. So you either speak good or remain silent. That is what you should do.

00:46:03--> 00:46:09

But today, people just speak for the sake of it No. A meaningful silence is better than meaningless words

00:46:13--> 00:46:30

than the laws of God gel. I'm gonna mention just a couple more points. He started this idea how he tenable what each study will mean. commonly translated, keep away, right? There's other words for that. There's a trucco leave off. Right? There's in general, right also,

00:46:31--> 00:46:58

you need to prohibit there's other words to say keep away from let Dr. Buddha get close to but Allah said extendible now amazingly, this word is tenable. It doesn't just mean to leave but to leave literally with what's the word like to shun completely to avoid with much harshness, much disgust completely, but it's the nub and a lot of jail use this word is tenable in three contexts in the

00:46:59--> 00:47:23

first context, it comes in the context of intoxicants and gambling in Nam Alhambra, well may suitable ensemble as l'amour instrument I'm gonna show you on budget enable, well talked about gambling and toxicants and arrows of divinity. In other words, leave it off. So that's the first context. Second context it came in the context of a loss it will have other batholith equally omitted Rasulullah and Ebola, which tend

00:47:24--> 00:47:33

to literally live off Shanta hood completely, not even for a moment you should get in [???]ake. Literally, that's the second context. Third context. This

00:47:34--> 00:48:08

is Danny buka theorem and one other word suspicion than logos ultimately, spying and backbiting. In other words, if you had to categorize all of those things, you put them all together on the same hitting HD NAB, just as you will completely shun and avoid gambling, intoxicants alcohol share this as you're so adamant on avoiding those things be adamant and avoiding suspicion sponsor, put them all in the same bag literally same category, but who do that many people that would consider these things to be the only minor. They don't minor, the major

00:48:09--> 00:48:19

then in iOS 13 Lazarus says, Yeah, are you on us? People now man is with the people. A large rule is telling us Oh, people in hola panakam in Dakar in Monza

00:48:21--> 00:48:36

was really made us literally he credited us from one male one female, which I know I'm sure well we'll cover it later out of we made it into tribes, clans and nations why she can hate each other to be racist. You Arab your Paki and you're from Indonesia and you're

00:48:38--> 00:49:05

going to get to know each other. So a lot of that is mentioning with medicine to tribes why so we can get to know each other? Why is Allah mentioned tribes, societies and clans? Because all these attributes from a one to 12 this is what makes up a good society is the the connection. Allah mentioned societies, communities Now in this ayah because everything that came before is what makes up a good community. And if you look at the surah before this surah mother, it's sort of 48 What is it?

00:49:06--> 00:49:15

At first, and it starts off in for dianella comfort tamina Allah opened up for the profile is far too slim, a manifest great opening, what opening?

00:49:17--> 00:49:20

With a beer, what happens at the treatment for the beer?

00:49:21--> 00:50:00

Yeah, there was peace. So what happens to the people they introduce them will leave, they entered a lot of people entered. In other words, now you have a society. So then allows one dimension so 200 this is how you run your society based on a HELOC and many see the beautiful connection. So with the fat loss thing, we've basically made a society for you. Now here's how you run that society. And that's the connection between these two sort. And also the beautiful connection with as a team over taking now and all that became before is I mentioned that creation. That word in Arabic is Hulk. Creation is called right I was the holodeck the Creator. So Hulk creation.

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

What character in Arabic

00:50:04--> 00:50:10

haluk. And that word is plural for hulak. What do you notice about holyoake? And Hulk?

00:50:12--> 00:50:44

Same letters. Sure. Same rule letters literally. Hello creation. Whoa, look your character sorry, how creation what's the connection? They should have meaning that your heart is your outer attributes your physical qualities, while you're holding on to inner behavioral traits and attributes, one outer one's inner, one's physical, and one is behavioral, beautiful connection of one mentioned your whole look at one to 12 and then 13 your whole your creation, amazing.

00:50:45--> 00:51:26

And then the and then if 15 Allah brings the whole sort of back to the beginning 360 manners with Allah in Malmo Menon and letting the arm and OB lie or sorry, two millimeter taboo to be unwelcome, unforeseen PCB de la, la echo Masada phone. These are those the believers who believe in Allah and His Messenger they don't have doubt. And they strive in the path of law and Jihad with their wealth with their selves. They are the true that the only they are truly the ones who are truthful. So Allah azza wa jal brings the sort of back to the original part how we started by mentioning managed with Allah and then again it ends with manners with Allah and the Last year Allah says in the La

00:51:26--> 00:51:33

Jolla la vida sama what if what Allah knows everything between the heavens and the earth? How did the sorta begin in the Lucha

00:51:35--> 00:52:04

semi on Halim the first ayah I leave the first I mentioned I was the last I mentioned a lot I didn't say that connection. In other words, how do you improve your character? Understand that our learners he sees all half duck when you understand that, that Allah he is he sees He knows everything, your watch what you say you watch what you do us by you went back by your whining so that's what makes good character having to duck what other laws of return. So panic aloha Mohammed Akane shadow and

00:52:05--> 00:52:07

Mr. felucca wanted to work
