Mila Hoffman or him actually hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah shortfill MBA you wouldn't want to sit in Nabina Muhammad in Salalah hora Lee who are early he was happy he edged Marian on the standard be sunette de la Yomi Dean Amar Barrett Salam or Aleikum, wa rahmatullah he wabarakatuh cartoon, and welcome all of you to another brand new series, this time it is Tafseer of surah, two hoogenraad, which is the 49th surah of the quarter. And this is a medini chapter of the quarter end. So this is taking place after at least 13 plus years of Islam. This particular surah is one of the soldiers of the Quran that is well known, you will see lots of tough coos, and lots of
commentary on this sort of all online, and scholars have been talking about the surah translating it for us explaining it to us since day one, why this sort of particularly stands out from other sources, because of two main reasons. Number one, this particular chapter of the Quran will help us to appreciate and enhance our respect, and our loyalty to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then number two, this particular surah is all about community building, community reform. So if you want to build a strong community, and it doesn't matter where you live, it doesn't matter if it's a big community, a small community, community within a Masjid or community amongst
Muslims. We're talking about every form of community building, there is out there. This is a sutra that I honestly feel it should be mandatory, especially for leaders, that when leaders are trying to instill the qualities of, of good members of the community that cooperate that follow the law that respect each other, there's no racism, there's no stereotyping, there's no discrimination, there's no hate, there's a respect. And at least you know, people live in a civilized manner, despite that they're from different countries, different cultures, different religions. This is a sutra that helps to bring all of that together so that at the end of the day, we can live together and
cooperate with each other. So this is a really profound soda. When I started looking at the soda, I asked myself, Why wasn't this the first soda that we looked at since our Tafseer series began. And I love wireless. I mean, Allah knows best here we are the most important thing. So let's just get right into it. And today we are going to introduce the soda so there's going to be a couple of introductory points with the soda. And then number two, we're going to look at the first a insha Allah. So with that being said, What behind a staring, it is with Allah subhanho wa Taala those blessings, mercy, guidance protection, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah bless us with the
knowledge of sorbitol hoogenraad give us the strength, the sincerity, that not only do we start this sutra, for his sake, with we journey through the surah for his sake, and May Allah subhanaw taala bless us that we get to the end of the sutra, for his sake alone. I mean, it's a really short sort of, it's only 18 verses. But don't be surprised. Despite it being 18 verses. Don't be surprised we have at least 18 to 20 episodes explaining this one sorta. So it's incredibly comprehensive. And you're going to see that as we look at the first verse in sha Allah hotelera. Okay, let's begin to spend la hora manual Rahim. Now SoTL hoogenraad. The word gerat is plural for how jordahl or Jota.
Now Hitler literally means a section or a room in the house. It's called this name because it's referring to the rooms or the homes the spaces that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam had for his wives. So I showed of the alarm on her had her own corner. When Solomon had her own corner corner. All the different wives of the prophets. I saw them kind of had their own section of privacy if you'd like. So the Prophet it said was slim. This particular sorta is given this name because the
There is a very beautiful, a, that we're going to come to insha Allah hota Allah in terms of our etiquettes and how we behave with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam his his wives, the kind of etiquettes that you have, when you speak of his wives, what we can learn from the way that they conducted themselves, as well as how others companions conducted themselves around the lives of the prophets. I said them so we're gonna look at a lot of those things in sha Allah hotevilla. Now, first thing that we mentioned as well, so little hoogenraad is all about respect and loyalty to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. Now why is that important? I want you to think of the quarter end
and the Sunnah as the constitution that you and I follow that at the end of the day, when Muslims and people in general disagree. And the you know, you're you're kind of trying to figure out some sort of result, some kind of resolution to an issue to a problem, whatever the case is, ultimately, what should happen. And obviously, I know it doesn't always happen this way. But what should happen is that when there is 50, left, or difference of opinion on anything, we should always come back to the Constitution, which is the core n, in the center of our profits highly sought was that that's the thing, that never changes. It's the thing that holds us together. It keeps us together, it binds
us together. So we could have different cultures, we could have different traditions, we could have different habits, we could go in several different directions. But at the end of the day, the engine that drives us to kind of have different flavors or preferences in the way that we live. The thing that the driving force behind that that still unites us at the end of the day, is we follow the poor end. And we follow the Sunnah of our Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam. This is why you can go anywhere in the oma despite, I mean, I know when we mentioned this, right? People start thinking about all the problems and all the issues of the world put all that aside. At the end of the day,
every single Muslim who calls themself a Muslim respects the poor end. And even if they have problems with the sooner they at least respect the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. Which brings me to the second point. We don't have the Prophet alayhi salatu salam with us anymore. So how do we elevate his Sunnah? And when I say pseudonym, pseudonym is not just the Hadith. had these literally means text, suddenly is a lifestyle. So when we're talking about the lifestyle of process of how do we elevate his lifestyle, so that when you have poor en, you have sydnor right beside it, how do you do that? The answer is really simple. You cannot have one without the other. It's impossible. So the
people who claim and they say things like the Sunnah is outdated the Sunnah is archaic. The Sunnah is this or that or just kind of ignore and reject Sunnah as a whole, I literally have no clue, no clue what the horror and teaches this is. So these are people that you almost will never find them sitting inside of a, you know, a class that's talking about Hadeeth sciences and the preservation of it, you'll never find them in these classrooms. And so they've developed this whole perception of what they feel and think that certain is and some kind of law, that at the end of the day, I can live life I can go on, and I can just hold on to the poor, and whatever the poor end teaches me
blah, blah, blah, and that's the end of that, it's not going to happen. So sudo Gerrard immediately is going to start addressing the importance of who the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam is and how we're going to balance the two. So that's the first thing you need one, and you need the other, they complete each other.
And the next point is that the or n in this particular surah is going to talk about raising our voices. So this is going to be tomorrow's episodes letter for a select token. Don't raise your voice above the voice of the Prophet. It starts with sound. We're gonna spend a lot of time on that verse. But just a quick insight. I don't want to jump forward too much here, but this is the voice of the Prophet Ali salt was set up, because why we don't have him here with us. You know, we can hear his voice but he This is his voice. So this is our version of the voice of the Prophet. It starts with them. And if that's not enough, well, you have also his son, his actual text, you have Bahati, you
have Muslim, you have tiramisu, you have all of these different texts that preserve his actual sentences. So in suited Eleonora
Alesis what fee Komodo SoTL. And amongst us the profit it sought to assign. So that made sense in Medina, after the Battle of Orford, that Allah reminded everyone, particularly the companions, the process, Selim is still there with you. So how do you and I relate to verses like that now, we have his teachings, we have his tradition. We have his Hadith we have Buhari and Muslim, and we also have the hora and this is his voice, he recited all of these verses and taught it to us. Now that brings us to the first day of Allah subhanho wa Taala begins eat your Halloween metal or people have Amen. Now we've talked about yet you will Latina me know several times in our past tough SEO. Okay. So
just in a quick nutshell, yeah, you will let me know if you will have the ability, the awareness and the knowledge to acknowledge emotion when you see it, or when you hear it. If you can at least acknowledge that. Now you're part of this a You are a valuable as an amateur. So even if you've never studied sonet or Hadeeth, okay, fine. That's okay. But you still Yeah, you will as an amateur because you acknowledge that it's important. It's a source. It's part of my constitution. In Islam in my religion, I have to have that source. It's part of me, even if I know nothing about it. You are Yeah, you will have the nominal already. So that's a great start. Now let's take that a step
further. lead to a demo.
Don't step forward. You see, Takada means to come forward, get closer, a lot clearly, no exception. Exceptions tells us led to Kadima Bane a day he left he water slowly, don't you dare step forward in front of a lot or his messenger it slipped was sillim. Now this makes sense. When you're a companion of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. You don't step forward. So there are two ways to understand this verse. There's a spiritual way and there's a physical way the physical way. It's obvious. The way you will read several stories that companions they used to circle the Prophet it subtle Salaam, and they would when they would be walking beside him, it would never happen that one of them would step
forward in front of the profits police officer now why, here's the point. Why do you have to do that? What's the point of doing it? Just because I'm in front of him physically? Doesn't mean I'm disrespecting him. I walk in front of my father, I walk in front of my mother. Like I mean, what's the big deal? Here's the problem.
At this point in Medina, I mean, since the first day, he got ikura. But at least in this point in the Medina, the prophet alayhi salatu salam is not just a political figure. He's not just the leader. Now he will become an historical leader, a historical leader, people will study his life and his tradition for the rest of our lives until the day of judgment. That's the first point. So this is nuts. When you're talking about a teacher, and you're talking to her prophets, I sell them as a teacher, these two teachers are not the same. When you're talking about great parents, the prophet is subtle. Salaam was a parent, these two parents are not the same. When you're talking about a good
leader, you have two leaders, the process Selim and his leadership is nowhere in comparison to the rest of the leadership of anyone else on the face of the earth. So you understand my point, he has become a prime example for all of mankind. So that alone sets the standard that you don't ever dare step in front of this man. So that's in the physical sense, in a spiritual sense. Now, we're in 2021 prophets I send them is not here. So how do you even practice this Hadeeth here is where the problems begin.
Now the problems begin.
How do you practice this area?
Let me give you an example. Okay. You got to have a beard sooner.
brother who's listening to this? They are really now. Huh? sooner. So that means it's recommend it's not why'd you visit? Don't worry about it. I like my mustache. I like nothing. I like my sideburns and no big look, whatever you want to have, right? So okay. You tell somebody say look, you know, a long time ago, I was sitting and I was getting ready to start the Juma. Okay, I was a hottie but msgid and this was about I was still a student in Medina. So I came back to Toronto for the summer and I was sitting in the masjid. And I'm getting myself ready putting my thoughts together. And as I was sitting
I did this with my fingers. This is on Friday, just before I was going to climb the member, the pulpit and give selam and begin to hope. But I sat and I kind of placed my fingers like this. And I'm sitting there and I'm thinking about what I'm going to say. And a brother beside me just when Santa Monica, I said while it was slower to LA, you said there's a head Ethan Bahati that our Prophet it is Salatu was Salam disliked when people did this before Juma? I had never heard this hadith in my life. And I did not. And I had no reason to even doubt him because I don't know every single Heidi's on the planet anyway. So he could be right. That's between him and Allah. So I
remember when he told me this. I said, Oh, okay, okay, just like a low Hydra done. I have no clue what it means. I don't even know the wisdom behind. I mean, now I do. But before Back then, I didn't know the wisdom behind this. And I just when I heard the Hadith, and he said behati. But even if he never said behati he tells me a hadith of our Prophet, it is subtle. So don't go above and beyond they will Yeah, what's who's the narrator? Which book? Did you read that from? What's the ruling on that head teeth and the bladder? And didn't you just start going and you literally start playing tennis with it. Don't go back and forth. It starts becoming like a competition. Well, the
prophecies, well, that was back then. It's not relevant now. Oh, this was actually a bad habit. And it represents it had a symbol attached to it. That's why our system disliked it. I'm not doing what they did. And for the reasons they did, I'm just putting my fingers this way. Because it's comfortable Blub. I didn't do none of that. So here's my point. When you hear a Hadeeth, or a teaching of the Prophet Alayhi, Salatu, Salam.
Our standard as believers is that we listen. And we accept it for what it is the research and authenticity. That's what scholars do. So if I say to you, and and I mean, obviously, our common sense will kick in as well. Like if I say to you to promise I sell them told us not to eat chocolate on Sundays. Then obviously, you're gonna be like, okay, you're just making up stuff. You never had chocolate, blah, blah, right? But if I say to you, the profit IE subtle selam always used to try and do his best in using his right hand to do good things to comb his hair to when he's getting dressed when he's putting on shoes, whatever. It was pleasant things in life. He always tried to do with his
right hand. Cannon Nabeel sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam,
you love to do things with his right. So when I tell you that you ever like, Well, that's because he was right handed. Right? So it makes sense. I'm left handed, I'm sorry. I just I can't eat with it. I can't eat with any other hand. I'm sorry. You just went against the a prophet Allah is telling us Don't put yourself above or forward from the prophecy sell them. So our version is that is when you hear his teachings.
You go into seminar now what authority
later, you look up and see what scholars said about that, that Hadith. So what I did, I was still a very young student, when I heard this hadith about placing your fingers like this. later on. A lot of you know, I studied Bahati from cover to cover. And I came across the same Hadeeth. And my teacher explained to me that this habit that some of the companions had, was actually a form of worship. And how some people you know, they do this, some people do this, some people do all kinds of hand gestures, as they're praying to whatever it is that they're worshipping Muslims, we do this when we pray and make dua to Allah. Right. So one of the traditions was this.
Okay, it was rare, but it was something at that time, I don't know if it's still practiced anywhere in the planet today. But point is, is this it was a similar sort of profit. Profit is a little sad dislike to see it in his campaigns, because why it was still quite prevalent during that period. So he obviously wanted to make a distinction between Okay, we're Muslims that we don't do that. It doesn't mean that you don't ever put your fingers like this ever again. No. And so I had appreciated that that brother at least reminded me of a Hadeeth of our profits early so to sell them, but then I took it upon myself later on to research and learn. When you do that, that's how you develop learn
to cut demo. You never go in front or above and beyond the standard that Allah and His Messenger rarely sought was Salam have when they tell us to do something, we do.
Last point and we'll move on. Second thing is, you probably heard how scholars when they hear ahaadeeth you know they pause like Imam Malik Rahim Allah Malik great scholar of Medina, great scholar of Hadith author of with the most authentic hadith book at that time at motha.
Whenever he narrates a hadith whenever he would say a hadith just Subhan Allah look at us in comparison to scholars. When Eman Manik Rahim Allah would say like verbalize a Narita Hadith, he makes sure he'd go take a shower, where his best clothing, trim his mustache were the best perfume he could find. Then he would say the head teeth, his students asked them, Why do you do that? His response is, I want to have the best and purest etiquettes when I'm going to utter and say a statement of our profit values are to serve subpanel
So why is this important? It's how you start to develop that respect, that loyalty and that love for him. Salalah while he was
Let's face it, guys, we all say we love him. Allah he's solid to us.
Ask yourself how much you How much do you really love him? How much do you love him son? The lower end he was when you hear his teachings? What's your reaction? What's your initial reaction when you hear his teachings? solahart he was asked yourself, I can't answer that. I know for myself what my reaction is. And I know I've got a lot to improve on that. So what's your reaction?
And I'll leave you with that.
What takala Look what Allah says next, have Taqwa of Allah. have Taqwa of Allah. Now, one last point before we come to this part of the AMA. We talked about community building. We talked about this being the prophesy Solomon's voice. So now not only when you hear a Hadith, but also when you hear the poor and you got to hear it as though the Prophet said of his reciting it upon you.
Who listens to her and that way who listens to her and that way as the total profit tally software service teaching it to you just just think about what that means.
Think about what that means. Think about when you listen to a song. Are you just listening to your favorite reciter? Or are you actually listening to the surah the beauty it's eloquence all of those things
and listening to your favorite reciter is not a bad thing. Don't get me wrong I'm not discouraging you from listening to your favorite recite I have favorite recite me my all time favorite reciter is Moodle.
Okay, the famous, I think he's one of the moloto I think he's one of the greatest reciters ever. And he I can listen to him all day, other reciters maybe not so much.
But when I'm listening to reciters that are not as appealing or pleasant to my ears. I make sure that my heart is still listening. Because it's probably like one of my favorite sources or I use the time to Okay, let me see if I can read along. I haven't reviewed that sutra in some time. Let me see if I can read all. So that's how you still maintain that love, loyalty and respect to Allah and His messenger. It was solemn, your heart's always connected in some way. Even if your ears are not even if your eyes are not. You know, you see people practicing the sooner you see people practicing Islam, but your eyes still become spiritually blind, your layout whatever. I don't care, you know,
they're all strict. They're the, you know, she wants to wear only black so whatever. No, you'd have to that. You're respected because why? That's a prophetic teaching. This is a poor heading teacher respected, even if it's not your preference respected. I get this question a lot. What do you think about niqab? I don't think anything about niqab except that when I see it, I respect the women that choose that level of discipline and practice. I respect that man to wear niqab in 2021 anywhere in the world. He's got to have some serious, amen. Here. He man is in a different category, some kind of law. You can get on a subway, you can walk the streets and your face is covered. People say oh,
you know everybody's faces covered now because of COVID. So we kind of get away with it.
I don't know. I mean,
Hovering part I can see that. But I don't know about you guys. For me when I see a nip hobby I see a Nickleby. I don't see all just like the face mask. No, no, no. It's very distinct and very different. It covers your entire half face. Our masks just do that. And masks are very distinct in their shape. niqab comes from the word, not pub or nightclub, that means something that covers the nose up to your eyes, and goes across all towards your ears all this entire section. So to compare a face mask to one niqab linguistically is inaccurate. So when I see in the hobby, it's very different and people's like, Oh, it's so much different. I mean, it might be a little bit easier. But when it
comes to that discipline, that choice, man, you've got to respect it, even if you don't agree with it. Even if you would never encourage your own daughter to do it fine. You're not told to encourage or any you're not told you're not commanded to do it but respected when you see others do it. Embrace it and respect that. That's what what toquilla is talking about.
Allah concludes this a and says what top left top one of your master?
Don't the sahabas already have top lobola it's almost 13 plus years after Islam don't they already have it? This is how allies reteaching you have Taqwa of Allah whenever you hear or see him Salalah or it was send them physically, we don't see him spiritually. We see him every single day. Salalah who it was. Now you understand how physically he's not here spiritually. I see. And you all should see the profit it sort of every single day of your life. You see him when you're eating, you see him when you sleep when you stand when you walk when you pray, when you eat when you laugh when you sit when you conversate socially, every single aspect. You see him some A lot of it was sort of how you
see him through your actions. When you eat you sit. If you can you eat with your right hand. If you can you eat that when you have a plate of food, you eat the portions of the food that is closest to you. If you can, you know you you when you're when you take a drink of water or what have you. You take the first three sips and then you continue drinking, if you can. So you're doing all of this because why you see him sallallahu it was sort of spiritually his teachings are in your life.
And Allah has semi or gnarly Allah is fully well aware and hears everything,
hears everything, and is complete knowledge of everything.
That's the introduction of soldier hoogenraad
you want to tell me now?
Don't the companions already knew what to say.
You know, you have narrations of companions that could never make eye contact with a prophet on the social side. They can never look Look at him and make icon located dead in the eyes. He could just never do that.
When asked the y axis I love him too. I have so much respect for him. I feel like I just I can't even look at him. When he talks to me I have my head down some level it was
how do we treat our lover today. There's a go on social media and see what people say about scholars. The memes are lemma students of knowledge. So penola
this surah we all need it. I don't care how many times we've studied the sutra.
This is one of the first lessons of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam
is you should never get tired of the basics. never get tired of reminders. That's how you know you have love for him. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you can hear the same Hadeeth every day. And you love it. By the way, a long time ago, somebody asked me and this is what I'll conclude with guys. They they were desperate to see the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in their dream they wanted to see him and a process set him did tell us that when you see an image or a person in your dream, and it's him so in the dream, you know, it's him and you're calling him by his name and you're following him. Then a prophet ru subtle, Sam says it is me for the shaitan cannot be me. It cannot come in my in my
example in my image.
So if you see what you think is a prophet, it starts with something in a dream. It's confirmed, then know that you have seen him? sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So this student asked me how can I do that? I want to see him
Love it. Listen. So I said to her exactly what I will say to all of you.
If you want to see him in your dreams,
start by seeing him spiritually in your life. Now, if you want to see him in your dreams, see him when you're awake, how? As we mentioned, if you see the Prophet alayhi salatu salam in practicing and implementing his teachings during the day, Allah will show you the image of this man sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in your sleep.
You will see him in sha Allah Tada.
Just imagine how beautiful that would be. For those of you who have probably never seen the meme, I'm sure some of you out there have seen him saw the love it was I personally have seen him once. And we can talk about that another time. But the point is, is that you're talking about somebody that companions described, his face was more beautiful than a full moon. You know, when couples want to get romantic, what do they do? They look up to the sky. Oh my god, it's a full moon and it just everything just becomes beautiful and pleasant.
The Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam said, face is described to be more beautiful than the full moon.
His his perspiration. Smell had an odor that was sweeter than musk perfume. So inside him out of the Allahu anhu. One of his wives. She used to have a tiny bottle with his sweat inside and she used to use it as a little bit of perfume whenever he would come by sell hula or it was just, it's remarkable. Imagine now you see this man in your dreams. It's very possible but you have to see him in your life. Through his teachings. May Allah azza wa jal continue to preserve and protect his legacy in his honor in our lives, in our hearts, in our minds in our teachings alone, I mean, that's the introduction of this beautiful suta tomorrow, a and number two insha Allah. So join me roughly
around the same time, because the lady Tara may align. So which I'll bless you all, a lot. Last thing I will say to you guys is on hamdulillah. We've done more than 300 videos. Since lockdown began back in March. I don't even know how that happened. I just know that seeking knowledge and being reminded is a lifelong journey. So we're going to put aside the numbers now. And we're just going to keep what I'm one of the aims that I have right now with you, with all of you watching, is to also illustrate and be an example that even myself as a teacher, I am first a student. So I still spend time every day with my books and just learning different things, even if it's just a couple
sentences. Because that is a lifelong journey as our Prophet it subtle, some taught us you seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave. So we're trying to practice that knowledge as well in sha Allah, Allah. So when you join on every day, you're not joining on to listen to Muslim Khan, you're joining on because it's part of a lifelong journey that you take on in learning about your deen period. Male ly so which I'll bless you for that and, and bless you for allowing me to be part of that alone. I mean, hopefully I will see all of you and more of you tomorrow in sha Allah, Allah, Allah azza wa jal bless you protect you and honor you love them. I mean, so take care guys was
Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
