Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah la tolosa woman, Weller brothers and sisters said Mr. Lee come back to LA he will about a cartoon. So we are at verse number three. And we're going to go on to verse number 10 in sha Allah in our journey through so to know so let's get right into it because lots of lots of things to talk about. Allah subhanho wa Taala continues and he says as zenni the male adulterer, la Yang Kiko Eliza Nintendo michiga they don't marry except a female adulterer or an idol worshipper. This is not an order. So this is the first lesson is not ordering us that this is the way if somebody had committed Zina that they should marry their equal. But this is a
statement. It's another words Allah is saying that at least culturally and in society, this is what each other deserve. They deserve each other in terms of this is the way that person live. These are some of the things they've done, and they deserve the same as well. I will surely go or an i dollar tour. Now why what is what's talking about what's being addressed here? You have to understand that somebody who has committed Zina, more or less, you know, it's one thing when somebody has done it and has done it as a mistake. And that's really almost difficult to prove simply because Zina is something that requires an intention with two individuals. Like it's almost impossible to
accidentally commit Zina, you understand what I'm saying? Like, you can't just say, Oh, I just I didn't know what I was doing. Because everything around that involves Xena, Subhana Allah, it has everything to do with intentions. This is why even the penalty of somebody who committed Zina was there fasting in the month of Ramadan is so serious, like you've got to fast 60 days consecutively without any interruption, or you've got to free a slave and you've got to do this and you've got to do that. It's so strict, because why it's almost impossible for it to be an accident. So Allah is saying that if somebody lives this way, where they're not taking a lesbian seriously, you know, and
even society and the community looks at and deems this kind of behavior as something shameful, but they don't see a shameful I mean, this is just something that they do, then you deserve somebody like you that's what a lie is saying. Like you deserve the same thing. Because you're not worthy of having somebody who is chest and honorable and who doesn't do these sorts of things. So that's what a lie is saying. So it's more of a statement rather than an order. And then Allah says the same thing about the man. The woman was then he had to learn a lesson in our machinery.
So the same thing for the woman, the adulterer, that she doesn't marry or she doesn't marry anybody, she doesn't deserve any except somebody equal to her or a mushrik. Or somebody who commits shark. Well, Hillary mentality. Meaning and that is something that is of course forbidden for people who have he men mean, you know, a legend, say wild woman Zadie Carolyn Latina m annual, not somebody who acknowledges, you know, this is the right thing to do. And, you know, that stuff is messed up, but they themselves are still guilty of some forms of Xena. No, no, no, no, unless as moltmann moltmann is the person that confronts Xena and can literally literally turn away. They can repel, they can
say are with a bullet. They they don't even have zinna thoughts. That's the moment that's what we're talking about. So Allah is saying with respect to marrying your equal, you know, for believers, once you have Amen, then the you're an exception to all of this. So May Allah subhanaw taala always count us from amongst the meaning. Well, let me know your moon and Mars sonnet. And as for those who blame the sun out what's happening, more sun adds more sun and Mars sun, or Mars sauna is actually the kind of woman that's protected in a fort. That's more sun. So as for the woman who is being blamed and look at the word that allow users to blame your moon, your moon from the word Rama, you know,
when Rama is used in Quran is usually used in times of war. Like they threw so we threw back you know, and so did that and fat Allah describes this, this is the the word that is used when they started, they attacked us. So we defended ourselves and we attacked back the same word is used. So Allah is saying that look, if you're going to wage this kind of social and spiritual war against her, will Athena your moon and Mars Sana so millennia to be Alberti Shahada, but you don't have four witnesses. Now, we're talking about four witnesses that actually witnessed him and her committing the act of Zinner. You know, it goes into a lot of detail. I've read this mess at a several times
over the years. It's insane the amount of detail, put it this way, for individuals. And it can't just be random people, it's got to be people that are known to be trustworthy. They'll tell the truth, if they see something like this, they'll be honest, they're not going to add more drama, they're not going to add more flavor to the conversation. They're going to say it exactly the way that they saw it. And these four individuals have to have all seen the complete act of Zinner and all that constitutes adultery. They have to have seen it consecutively at the same time, and so that their Shahada when they testify, it's gonna be the exact same thing. Yeah, I was there. I was
standing beside him. He was standing beside me, she was standing beside me. We were all standing together and we saw this what's the chances of that it's almost impossible for individuals to see that act. So what is Allah subhana wa Taala really doing here to have that kind of condition? In other words, in other words, here's how you understand the A if you don't have four witnesses that see the explicit act of Xena between these two individuals then be quiet their cases with a lot done. Again, just be like oh, you know, you know her? Yeah, she's pretty wild. You don't you don't get to say that.
him Oh, I've seen him. I see him sitting in a restaurant with a girl. Okay, you know that that's a problem. I'm not trying to trivialize it, but don't try to add that into this area. Cuz it's completely This here is a completely separate category that's far away from that stuff. So subpanel love, so much. So not when she is protected. Again, remember this particular word because Allah subhanaw taala will use this word several times in disorder. So will Latina your moon and Mars sign and the woman that is being protected from this act and from this behavior so millennia to be automatically Shahada. So all of a sudden this woman that's supposed to be protected, she's being
blamed for committing Zina federally do some any agenda and then if they don't produce if they can't literally verify and testify what they saw clearly in front of a judge, then the same for witnesses. This for witnesses that came up with that test certification and it was false federally do home semolina gelatin,
then you have to lash them or whip them at
time. So let's talk about all our home shahadat, and EBITDA. And you don't take any shadow from them ever again, no test certification. It doesn't even matter if has nothing to do with this this scenario, any kind of test certification moving forward from these four individuals, no matter what, you don't ever accept it, some kind of law. You know, it's like they wrote they've written off if didn't come clear with what they saw. But they're still accusing No, no, no, I know. What's her? No, no, like, we weren't like sitting there. But we were there. We saw them holding hands. Then we saw them going getting into a car, and then we saw them drive up to a hotel. We saw them check in
together. We saw them going into the elevator. But then after that, we didn't see what happened. But I mean, come on. It's obvious. No, it's done. Now you get punished with ad lashes. And your test certification is no longer accepted.
You see how serious this is? That's how this is how unbelievably serious the subject is to a lot. You don't falsely
try to accuse anyone of zeta. So one of the biggest, maybe the biggest spiritual crime aftershock you know, in solitary for con. Allah said well lesbian Allah yet the owner of La Isla Aha, that's one. Whoever doesn't associate any other with Allah.
Well, I have to Luna Neff seletti, Hydra, mala Illa will help and they don't commit murder, or they don't take their the life of anyone except if it if there was a verdict issued in that in a court of law. And here's number three, while it is known. They didn't commit Zina. And how do we know this? Because all of this happened. It was testified it was verified it went through a judicial process. But if you came out and you try to accuse somebody, and it wasn't true, or you couldn't verify your accusation, now all of a sudden surprise, now all of a sudden, nothing is accepted from you. And you are the one that ends up getting the punishment whether you as a biller, what will occur whom will
farcical it didn't even end there. Now they are considered to be the facet of society. You know what facet is a facet comes from the word fiscal and fiscal is somebody that's inherently corrupt. So that individual becomes corrupted in society. Those are the corrupt for those individuals that Yeah, they're corrupt, stay away from them. They become an outcast the society immediately because of this one axes accusation that they made, specifically the accusation of Zina on him or her done.
There is one exception to this. It's the next verse
11 nothing in a taboo, except the one who repented. Students Remember I said to you the taboo from the word Tabitha, Toba is usually translated as repentance, isn't it? But the thing is that what exactly is Toba? I did a whole video I think a couple of times in the past when we did that series called spiritual growth. There's a whole section is a video there. That's all about tober. And just to summarize, tober is not just along with federally, federal law, that's not that's not exactly what Toba is trying to capture Toba is when you physically change tabber is when you turn from the opposite direction. So you physically change your circumstance. That's towba. You know, if, if you
can't stop clicking that website, Toba is you turn off the computer, you get off the phone and you take a break from it, you put it in the basement, you lock it up, you do something, but the point is you take a break from that stuff. That's Toba you physically change your circumstance so that you can facilitate a less obedience allows obedience becomes that much easier for you. So Allah says the only way that you're going to at least forgive these four individuals that did this is that if they proved to society that they are different their behavior, their actions, their lifestyle, everything about them has changed
minbari they're like whoa whoa whoa whoa so after they've done all of that what us level and they've corrected themselves Seiler how your your level so they actually change themselves and people see and recognize that for in the Lahore photo Rahim. Allah is always forgiving an exceptionally merciful. Now it gets interesting when Latina your moon as well as your home and whoever's blamed. So this is now between the husband and the wife as well as your home.
their spouses. Well let me akula Shahada Illa foster home. So now the husband, he blames her.
He said that she committed adultery she cheated on me. But the problem is is that it happened in their house, okay, he was gone to work, some guy came over. And you know, he side on on video or something right? Or he knows like he saw evidences, you know, his clothes, his watch something was left. And he knows for a while he's been watching this for a while he knows that she's been cheating on him. So the problem is he has no witnesses. He's the only witness when it comes to a husband and wife or in marriage. starts off with the husband now it's gonna come to the wife next. So if the husband blames her for cheating on him, and committing adultery Zina,
and there's no witnesses, Fisher had that to a heady him, then the witness is going to be both of them. So in this case, starting with him, outer barrel shahadat, him below so he becomes four witnesses now. So he has to stand in front of a judge and say, I swear by Allah I saw her or I know she's committed Zina, I swear by Allah she committed that she has to do this four times Shahada Tim Billa. with Allah, so he has to take an oath with Allah in front of a judge that I swear by Allah's Name, she had committed sinner. You see how serious this is? This is the highest form and level of oath.
You know that in our entire Deen, this is the highest level. Now, I'm going to pause here for a second. You know, earlier on, we're talking about, you know, you know, for individuals that came and accused of Xena, now it got turned against them because they can improve anything. You know, one of the things that we learned from that is, you know, I'm not saying that in society, we should hide the bad things that happen. We're not saying that, okay, you know, what Xin is happening, don't talk about it, don't start going around and accusing people. But when we talk about the sensitive subject, because again, it involves a major accusation on people and their integrity, their
reputation, all of those things, we have to be able to provide some resource so that that can be fixed, that can be sorted out, provide some kind of counsel, some way to nurture the problem and heal from it. We can't just be and I mean, you know, I'm sure a lot of you have heard hotbeds and lectures where a speaker will go up and start giving explicit details. You know, our daughters, they're doing this, they're sleeping with this, our sons are sitting at home and are watching this and they're sleeping with her slyke. What do you want us to do when we hear that? We as an audience, when we hear that we go for a heartbeat, we hear the speaker start giving all of these explicit
details? Okay, great. What do you want us to go home now and start throwing up like, what do you want us to do? Tell us, or at least concentrate on how to fix this problem now. And the second thing is,
in the quarter end, there are almost a dozen words to describe intercourse.
Not one of them. Not one of them. And all of you who speak Arabic, you know this, not one single word in the Quran that describes intercourse is explicit.
It's all very subtle. Like one of the words is mess. Mess means to touch.
That's it. That's one of the words for intercourse, just you touch Mesaba.
That's one of the words.
So Allah Himself is very subtle, with the subject, but it is talked about, it is mentioned. So we're not saying to ignore this stuff. But when you talk about it, talk about it in a way that's subtle in the sense where it doesn't, it doesn't sound like you're pointing fingers at everybody. Because now, you know, for me personally, I think that when you do that, you actually bring more negative attention and consequences to the problem than actually trying to solve anything. Because why? You know, those kids that are sitting in that audience that are hearing, oh, my God, kids are sleeping with each other, what's that? Their brains start to process. You know, this is an innocent kid that
has never heard or even imagined these things. And now they're hearing it because the speaker just wanted to entertain and tell everybody some really awesome juicy stuff. For what? Yeah, and then at the end always, like, we need to make Dora but his whole lecture was all these explicit details of what our sons and daughters may or may not be.
Doing, then you have innocent students that are listening to this and all of a sudden their brain starts to do what starts processing.
You know, this is the things that their parents were protecting them from now they heard it from the speaker, the dairy him or herself. And then secondly, when you start listening to things like that, doesn't the problem now go from being major to? It's not so bad? When I heard that speaker talk about it, I realized that 27 of my friends were doing it. Okay. Well, guess it's a normal thing in society. So you actually indirectly trivialize the problem. So it's got a counter effect. Here you are trying to bring awareness but you went about it? Totally, totally wrong. So how do you? How do you address this stuff? If you're going to address this stuff, don't make it just a thing to say, to
to entertain people to get people feel like instead of listening to a hook by they're watching a football, like a movie, don't do that. But instead, talk about the stuff and bring awareness to it in a manner that's civilized, it's dignified, it's mature. And don't stay away from all the explicit details. Stay away from that stuff that's in the Quran as well. By the way, when Yusuf Ali, his salon was being seduced by the woman, did Allah tell us what she did?
Did a lot say to her how she prepared you know, the palace and nothing.
All she said was, oh, call it hate her luck. All she said to him was okay, go Go ahead, do whatever you want hater. Go here and just take me let's say no details in between. We're going to see the same pattern in this pseudo once we get to verse 30, and 31 of the sutra, inshallah, you're going to see the same pattern, how Allah addresses something so sensitive and intimate. When it comes to all the little details in between, none of it is mentioned. But the message is still loud and clear, and how a law resolves how Allah solves these kinds of problems. Okay. So that's one lesson. Now coming back to this well, levena, your Muna as well as your home. So now the husband is accusing the wife
of adultery. So he makes a test invocation in front of a court four times using a last name in lemon assadi pain and he also says, I'm telling the truth, I swear by Allah, she is committing Zina. I'm telling the truth. Okay, fine. Well, Hamza. And the fifth thing is, he says, so he does it four times. And then the fifth thing that he says in front of the judges, a learner to law here, either he in Canada mean alkazi been
a while, he is going to declare a laws curse on him. If he's telling a lie. So he's going to say in front of the judge,
is that may Allah curse me if I'm lying against my wife,
you know, when you go to that extent, so two things have happened here.
You use the last name four times to testify against your wife.
And then number two, you called for Alice curse, if you're a liar, what's left?
What's left nothing.
You've used both of these two extreme resources. you've exhausted like you can go above and beyond
using Alan's name, and at the same time, seeking his curse, if you're if you're not telling the truth, there's nothing better or worse than this. That's it is the highest level of test ification. In our, in our Dean, where is a life giving us examples of using the highest level of test certification? It's when he's talking about accusing people of Xena.
Think about it. Let that resonate for a second. That's the subject that allows us in here.
Then, as far as she's concerned, now, it's her turn. Well yet total analyzable now, she can be saved from any kind of punishment. You know, the word Yara from the word Dada. Dada means to you know, like, if somebody throws something at you and you deflect it, like if somebody throw a rock at you, and you kind of hit it away, it didn't hit you, you deflect it, that's called delta. So to deflect pain away, is Dada. So while your daughter while your daughter and her lie that the punishment is deflected or saved from her, and Tasha otterburn shahadat Tim biller, in the whole American Academy, so now she it's her turn in front of the judge to swear by Allah four times. That he's actually
I didn't convince him but he's
so angry at me he wants to see me destroyed he wants to make my life miserable so he added more to this yeah yeah I was with somebody or I we held hands or we went to a movie or something but we didn't do what he's accusing me of. So she will stand in front of the judge and say well law he will love me I swear by a lesser but four times that he is a liar in the whole laminal Kelsey beam while harm Miss setter, and the fifth thing that she does, and now Hata Bala here la her, the anger of Allah be with me. In Ken, I mean, I saw your pain if he's telling the truth, the anger of a lobby with me. So the first for him was the curse of Allah. If he's a liar, here, it's the anger of Allah
if she if if he's telling the truth. So if it's, so now you have two such situations, you have the husband hear this accusing her. And he testified four times. And then she testified against him four times that he was a liar. That never happened. And they both He said, If I'm lying, may the curse be with me. If I'm lying, if he's lying, then made a less angry with me. So what do you do?
What do you do now? Because it seems like we're back to square one now.
Well, I would love for the law here I lay more metal.
So, this is where the judge now drops the case for the most part, the case has dropped.
Now, once you have a scenario like this, you leave it for the Euro to judge. Now they both both what they did is they submitted a case to Allah for the El Faro Allah will fight will decide the final verdict Case Closed.
So panela you know how we get this will of course from the sooner in the shed he talks about this a lot. But look at the last area that I share with you verse number 10 what have fun La Jolla, la Kumar Metro if it wasn't for the, the virtual and blessing of Allah and His or Rama, what Allah had to worry about Hakeem, and Allah is the source of repentance and the most wise, did you guys pick up What just happened? You know, if we start a sentence and say, if it wasn't for me, aren't we supposed to continue with that? Like, if it wasn't for him, you would have gotten hurt. So it starts off with a condition and the response to the kitchen condition. If you weren't here. I don't know
what would have happened. We don't stop the sentence by saying if you weren't here.
But that's what Allah did.
So Ally's saying,
if it wasn't for Allah's mercy, meaning he accepted your test certification in front of the judge,
out of his mercy, his aura hammer towards you. If that wasn't the case,
you don't. And that's how I left.
You have no idea what I would have done, you used my name and you asked for my curse and my anger
if it wasn't for Allah's blessing, and Rama and Allah stops there.
Wow, that is serious.
Because now this case is going to be decided in the federal court in front of the real ultimate judge in his court. Now their case is left with a lot of love will judge it on the Day of Judgment.
Unbelievable. Unbelievable. One of the one of those moments when we're reading something in the Quran.
You just like you freeze because Allah just said
if it wasn't for my mercy, man, you have no idea what I would have done with you for taking my name. And then on top of that, saying, you know just yeah, Mel was cursed me with it. Like as if you can handle the mullahs anger be with as you as if you can really take that.
But out of his mercy, the cases dropped. Okay, that's it, go.
Go repent and leave it at that. Now they have to figure out how to resolve how to reconcile their marriage. That's a separate issue from this. That's a separate issue now from this.
let's go back here a little bit because there's a lot happening here
when we're talking
about the subject of Xena, when it comes to details,
leave that out. Unless you're dealing with somebody who's literally in front of your face and telling you, I committed Xena. I did this with him or her, then you can start to discuss, okay, how do we resolve this? What's the next step? What resources do we have to counsel this problem?
But when it comes to accusing somebody else?
And this addresses that question, a lot of brothers and sisters who are looking to get married, they asked this, like, Can I ask if he or she is a virgin? Can I ask, you know, if they've done anything in their past? Is that is that a good question to ask?
You know, I don't know if that's a good question to ask.
However, what I will say to you is this according to the suta, you don't have any reason to accuse him or her of Xena, then just be quiet. Don't ask the question. Leave it alone. What if later on you find out that that person has done something like it or something similar?
Allah is a to Webb and Hakeem, he is the one that accepts repentance. He is the fool Raheem, not to you. So you don't get to say all you know, You deceived me. And you didn't, you weren't honestly, you know, this marriage is done. You don't get to hold that now against him or her that they've may or may not have done. And even if they say, Look, I've done it. You're not the judge urine. You're not in Islamic judge that gets to Diem over that marriage and say, Oh, you know, you betrayed my trust, call us. You know, his marriage is done. And I don't want anything to do with you. Because you don't know that Allah already forgave him or her.
It's in the books. It's in the past. Allah forgave him or her Who are you to come around and reopen that case against him or her and judge them on top of that. You don't get to do that. That's why one as long as we are alive, the doors of Toba and repentance are always open to us and who gets to decide who who walks into those doors? It's not you or me.
It's not you. It's not us. That's a lost territory. So do it if she or he said they've repented, they committed this mistake. They were shamed. They didn't want to talk about it. That's why they hid it from you. But they're sorry, they apologize. squash it move on. It's not it's not a good reason for you to put the whole marriage now up in the air. No, it's it's happened, call us. And you have no idea that her repentance was accepted by Allah subhana wa Tada. And his Toba was accepted by Allah Subhana you have no idea. So let drop it.
Second thing is the whole conversation of zinna when we're talking about details, leaving details out and trying to just concentrate on how to fix the problem. that's easier said than done. Because it's one thing when you're trying to avoid this kind of narrative to be pumped into the eyes and ears of our kids. But then when they watch a cartoon, and they see you know, the princess is looking for her prince somewhere and she starts dating every other cartoon out there and you're just like god you know, Princess Fiona in Shrek isn't dressed like that in the middle of winter by accident. And so you start looking at these details and you're like, oh my goodness, this subliminal message
messages that are being pumped into our kids. And you're just like, Oh my gosh, here I am trying to tell them about Sunita new and and talking to him about this. With this stuff is everywhere. That's the kind of culture and society that for a lot of us we're exposed to. So this is easier said than done is I'm not this is not an easy conversation and not an easy subject to navigate through. But what we are concentrating on is the way Sunita Nur introduced this subject when it comes to accusing anybody in the community that they've done this unlawful act of Xena you better be careful. Although law federal law here la Kumara to the wasn't for a loss protection blessing and Laura have no idea
the fact that that sentence paused there is scary. It's frightening to me. I don't ever want to have this, be in this predicament where I have to testify or accuse and potentially falsely accused somebody of this act. I don't ever want to be part of that.
So So Pinilla what an enormous responsibility for judges when they have to be in this position and decide, you know, and again,
lots and lots of filth behind it. But my point is, this is not something the average layman Muslim takes into their hands.
The next subject is going to be the conversation about the issue of the love wine and how this sort of stood up and defended her. I thought about introducing that subject but I'll save it. I'll save it for tomorrow in sha Allah hotel.
And I will will introduce the subject What happened to her? She was accused for something. How did all of that begin? And what Alicia's response to that my god alleged response to this. I'm protecting our mother, our beloved, a Chateau de la Varna.
I promise you insha Allah by tomorrow, all of you, including me who love I showed her the love on her. I promise you in sha Allah by tomorrow, your love for her will increase in sha Allah, you will love her even more. You will respect her and you will defend her honorable name even more after tomorrow and shout low to Ana, so stay tuned for that. Okay, guys, stay tuned for that. And may Allah azza wa jal continue to teach us the guidance of the Quran and Sunnah alone. I mean, does that come a level higher than guys take care of yourself and again, young people, if you see or hear of any of them out there, give them the chance and somehow create an opportunity where they can listen
to this and be reminded of this, some of this, some of these things. And of course, when it comes to resources and waste, if we can counsel this major, major, major problem in society with respect is in it. Those are the things that we want to put our energy and concentration on insha Allah Allahu taala, okay, is that Molo hydrate everybody, take care of yourselves until tomorrow. What's said Mr. Lee Kuan warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
