Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah so today it's part 23 of our series, and we're going to sort of tell you Sora so let's begin. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, Tim, she fell out of the model here. Actually, let's go to the verse before the woman a woman while I talk full man, lay silica be here in in a seminar, well, basato Well, fu ad kulula can and home schooler. So here's the first thing about the set of verses because we're going to look at three of them today. They're actually part of a collection of verses that come one after the other, incidentally, is sort of the talk about some of the worst and most detestable actions of

00:00:46--> 00:01:27

society, some of the worst things that people could be involved in. So that's why it starts off with adultery, shadowcat, or association with a law that has already passed into sudo. So this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala begins with Xena or adultery, then a lug continues with murder and hurting the innocent, then a las panatela talks about cheating in business, taking advantage of people's wealth. So some of the worst things that people from day to day go through an order involved in this part of the poor. And in this particular chapter is helping us to see that these are some of the worst actions in society that someone could be involved in. And as we come to the end of that

00:01:27--> 00:02:08

conversation, one of the last things that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us is number one, what we've just mentioned in this particular alarm. So Joel says, while I talk for my lay silica be here And don't you dare for a moment speak about things that you have no knowledge about, man, you know, when I listen to this, a I wish that this verse could be in every classroom of every message and Islamic Institute and Islamic school, we need to see this verse painted on our walls. As soon as you enter a classroom as soon as you enter a lecture hall. As soon as you enter the Imams office, you need to see this area you need to have it on your phone on your screensaver is just so that you're reminded,

00:02:09--> 00:02:46

never speak about things you have no knowledge of why it's not that it's going to be an embarrassment. I mean, that's part of it. It's not going to be that you're going to humiliate yourself that you're going to speak on something that you have no knowledge of, and that's something that's detestable it's frowned upon. It's looked down upon from society. People don't appreciate when somebody talks about something they don't know nothing about. It's missing. It's it's an act of misguidance. You know, you could relate information that just simply is incorrect isn't accurate. But there's a bigger picture here, there's a deeper wisdom, why you shouldn't do that. If you say at

00:02:46--> 00:03:32

the end of the day, and a lot of people do this. Well, I don't care what people think, well, this is what I believe. This is what I think is right. This is the way that I think it should be. The deeper problem with that is the rest of the verse is going to highlight it in a seminar. Well, bussola will add your hearing you're seeing and your full ad for AED is another name of the heart in the core end. And what it's referring to is a heart that is emotionally charged. It's overwhelmed with emotion. This is why in Sudoku puzzles, Allah subhanho wa Taala described the heart of musala he said him after she had to put her son into the river and let him go, for us was about half an hour

00:03:32--> 00:04:20

to only Moosa Fatiha that the eventually became the heart of the mother of Moosa became Fatty, her Fatty, it became empty. In other words, all the emotions that she would have for her child, suddenly, just it became so difficult for her. She didn't know how to express it anymore. She didn't know how to keep herself relaxed and calm. And that give give her self the reassurance that her son will be back. So Allah subhanho wa Taala describes that her forehead became as if it was empty. She didn't know how to express this emotion anymore. And I mean, especially when you're a parent, you can understand that just having your child God for even a few seconds, not knowing where he or she

00:04:20--> 00:04:41

is, is just completely overwhelming. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the heart in this area that is completely overwhelmed emotionally. And now what does that mean? What does that how or how does that connect with the A? Well, it's very simple brothers and sisters, sometimes when somebody talks and they speak about things they don't know.

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

emotion, can certainly take can can be involved in that in the sense that then if you don't know, you have no knowledge, then it's just your emotions that starts talking. Well, I feel it should be this way. Well, I have this gut feeling in my heart that it's wrong. So you

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

Start getting emotions involved that comes from the heart, Allah subhanho wa Taala says I'm going to interrogate the heart. One other point that should also be noted is that often when people are overwhelmed with emotion, alright, so if somebody turns into like an incredible hulk, and they just get angry all the time, and they say things they shouldn't say, or somebody who is, you know, involved in certain things, and they're like, that's just the way that I am. You know, I love women, I love men, I'm involved with so many. That's just the way I'm a player at the end of the day, if they start talking this way, because these are some of the things that this section of the sorta

00:05:36--> 00:06:21

address people who cheat who fornication who commit murder, so if somebody says, Oh, I just like hurting people, that's just the way that I am. I don't know what else to do. Allah created me this way, what Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying kulu that kulula he can can and houmous, all that all of that stuff, I'm going to interrogate. So it's not enough for somebody to say, this is the way that I am. And there's nothing that I can do about it. No, it's actually the contrary, we all have the ability to change, we all have that ability. One of the things that is unique about human beings is that we can adapt, we can get used to things, and this lockdown of this whole COVID situation proved

00:06:21--> 00:07:02

just that, that we could shut down the entire world and get accustomed to a new way of living, even if it's just for a temporary period. The point is, we get through it, we get used to being home, we get used to being with our kids, we get used to working from home, so much. So now that you know there's some businesses and companies now that have started to adapt the idea that Wait a minute, although we can reopen, maybe it's not such a bad idea that we can have certain employees just continue to work from home, because it's worked out better for them. So we can adapt to change. And so this is telling us that at the end of the day, who you are, and and what you choose to say or do

00:07:02--> 00:07:46

or behave, all of this stuff could be changed. All of this stuff could be altered in a way that's better for culture for society. And for people at large. We can do that. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us another stark reminder while at attempt she fell out of the model hair, don't walk on this earth with model her model hair comes from the word moto. moto has a level of pride. It's like a third degree of pride. And moto is actually another word for for somebody that is overwhelmed with happiness, not the good type of happiness where this happiness is a sense of pride. So they're always laughing everything's a big joke to them. They think think they have everything under

00:07:46--> 00:08:22

control. They start laughing and saying things like all you know, COVID will come and go no big deal. They trivialize things they trivialize life. They trivialize the biggest problems, they laugh it off. That's motto. So a lot. So agilis says, Don't you dare walk on this earth with this sense of arrogance and pride that you're happy and you're boastful and that everything is one big joke to you. It's really important because I'm sure that all of us listening to this including myself. We all know somebody who does this. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala continues and he says in the colon toughly, when w Hol g bad or Tula, you're not going to crack the earth, when you're walking, you're

00:08:22--> 00:08:59

not going to reach mountains as you walk. This is poor man's way of saying, you don't have to walk on this earth so that everybody notice you notices you to the point where every time you take a step, you leave a crack in the ground, you think everybody's gonna turn their head and say, Look, Harry, here, he or she comes, don't do that. I don't think that you can reach this guys. This is what pride does, it starts making you think the impossible that you can actually achieve and you can actually do certain things that no other human being can do. That's one of the most extreme levels of pride. And so a lot so Joel tells us that these are some of the things that are detestable looked

00:08:59--> 00:09:43

down upon and hated by him. subhanho wa Taala. How do we know this? The last verse could lose their liquor cabinet say you warendorf become a kuruva. All of those things are saying, we talked about se in one of our previous videos, say it's detestable it's hard to look at it's ugly. It's it's displeasing. That's what Allah says about these kinds of attitudes. When you talk to somebody and you you're talking without knowledge, that's that's uncomfortable, awkward. And then this a, it's an ugly thing to do. That action is just detestable. It's deplorable. We don't, we don't want to see or hear anything like that. than somebody who walks with their chest puffed out, they're stomping the

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

ground. They think that they can reach anything, do whatever they want. That's another detestable action and be able Allah subhanaw taala is saying, I don't like this stuff. And here's the point. A lot silicosis, kulu zelicah cannot say more. endota become a guru.

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

All of those things are so ugly and so detestable in the sight of Allah, that they are makakuha mcru in the Quran is not the same as macro and

00:10:11--> 00:10:51

macro, in fact means something that is disliked. It's one step away from how long it's the thing that protects somebody from falling into how long if you stay away from the things that are disliked, you will ultimately stay away from the things that are hot off, but in core and when Allah subhanho wa Taala as he tells us in another part of the poor end, that murder is mcru now here he tells us that speaking without knowledge is micro. Walking with pride is macro. Stealing is macro taking the lives of innocent people and children and murder and so on. mcru then Allah tells us the Xena is micro, what does that mean? Does that mean that all of these things are disliked and they're

00:10:51--> 00:11:40

not taught on you You tell me in the quarter an mcru is haraam means that Allah subhanho wa Taala disliked something so much, that it's so detestable, it's so ugly, it's so difficult, that Allah subhanho wa Taala does not like it a single bit. One of the words to describe that is macro. So when Allah says something is macro, it's as if it's hot in the Quran. So it's like you and I, you know, sometimes we might see something or hear something. And we're like, oh, that's disgusting. I hate that. What are you really saying, Get that away from me. I don't want to have anything to do with that. So it's the same idea with porn. Because we do this all the time with each other. When we say,

00:11:40--> 00:12:17

Ah, that's, that's so disgusting, that's filthy, get that away from me. It says if you're saying, I don't want to have any part of that, it's as if you're just making that at least from a linguistic perspective, you're making that out on for yourself. And so the same idea in the Quran, when Allah subhanho wa Taala says, all of these things, all of these actions that have been laid out in these in the series of these verses in this sorta and he ends off that conversation saying that they are all makakuha, meaning they are all held on. And so it's really important brothers and sisters, once again, as we learn and we continue to appreciate how Allah teaches us to behave and conduct

00:12:17--> 00:13:01

ourselves, in society, around the world, and all places at all times. It's really important to understand some of the deeper wisdoms behind that. So we're not just going to refrain from speaking about things without knowledge or, you know, developing us a sense of pride, we're not going to refrain from all of those things just because society detest that kind of behavior. But the deeper wisdom, the deeper, long term goal behind all of this is, Allah subhanho wa Taala hates it a lot. So Joel himself hates it. And when you're a believer, that's enough. When the last one Allah subhanho wa Taala tells you that I don't like something. What more of an incentive there's a believer need to

00:13:01--> 00:13:42

do to to, to do something or to refrain from something when Allah subhanaw taala gives you a command or prohibit something, but more of an incentive Do you need in order to appreciate that verse, that's, that's enough. And that's what we want to capture and appreciate from these verses. So take some time in sha Allah. And go back to I think it's about verse 32, I believe 31 or 32 and start from there and just read through some of the things that Allah highlights in on this page of sortedlist Sora. And I pray that Allah subhanaw taala protects us from ever falling into and saying and doing the things that are dis tested by him subhanho wa Taala we pray that Allah azza wa jal

00:13:42--> 00:14:01

always in forever open our hearts and open our actions that we continue to do our best to please Him and to follow his instructions allow me second level Hydra and again, everyone May Allah bless all of you and keep you safe Till we meet again. Take care of what's said Mr Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
