Okay guys Bismillah manual Rahim Al Hamdulillah in Europe below the mean, post Salatu was Salam ala shortfill MBA, you will move Salim Nabina Muhammad Ali, he often was salah, what time would Tasleem and behrad more Alikum warahmatu Allahi wa barakatu. And welcome all of you yet again to a another session of our journey through SUTA. Jot. And as you can see in front of you, that is the area we are at. So I've got a nice little setup here. I've got a screen on my on the side of me here. And I've got you guys right in front. So just bear with me guys, you'll see me from time to time looking down at the screen next to me, okay.

00:01:34--> 00:02:26

and look at those biathlon. Okay, guys. So let's get right into this. So today's theme is with verse number seven. Love what is good and dislike what is bad. So now, just to do a quick brief recap of remember this A that we looked at last week about when you are given news, any kind of news, and you need to or you're doubtful of whether that news is authentic or not the poor n in this, He tells us to verify fabyan And we talked about how that should be done. We talked about the process of verification and the wisdom behind that. And one of the wisdoms that is mentioned here in this particular area was the last two points that you see here. So until Siebel Coleman, Vijay hayleigh.

00:02:26--> 00:03:09

And also photos behind Island Ferry to narrow the mean so that you don't harm somebody you don't speak on behalf of somebody, you know, you get this news about them. You don't speak about them in the wrong way or inaccurately. And then as a result later on, when they hear and they find out this rumor has been going on about them. They'd at least be able to address it and they won't feel hurt. No, everybody got that wrong. That's not what I said. That's completely inaccurate, that sort of thing. And then you don't want to set the tone, that eventually it becomes a habit for you or that person and those who talk about that individual. They become desensitized to the whole idea of

00:03:09--> 00:04:02

spreading gossip. They become desensitized to it. So you don't want to create a culture that revolves around backbiting and gossiping and things like that. Now with that in mind, that's today's that leads us into today's Allah subhanho wa Taala continues and he tells us why lm n fi calm Rasulo law Rasul Allah and keep in mind that Allah's Messenger is still in your midst, he still amongst you. Low to configure theory minute Emery learning tune. If he were to yield to you in many matters, you will surely suffer. We're going to talk about what all of this means in a second. When I came to La Habra, la como Eman was the Yahoo fi Apolo will be calm, but rather Allah has endeared face to

00:04:02--> 00:04:05

you making it appealing in your hearts.

00:04:06--> 00:04:56

What come Raha la Quinn will cook for a while for soon our nCn Ola eco Houma rashie dune and he has made disbelief rebelliousness and disobedience detestable to you. Those are the ones that are rightly guided. So that's the Arabic and that's the English translation. Let's break it down. Okay, guys. So first point about this A and as you see on your screen, the prophet already has salatu salam was still alive. And so Allah gives them that reassurance that he's still there amongst you can go and get your news verified. You hear something about him. You hear something about Islam, you hear something about Allah. Don't just come up with your own conclusion of what you think is this or

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

that what you think might be halal or haram.

00:05:00--> 00:05:57

Now the lesson for you and I, in this A is really obvious. This is all about being cautious and careful not to speak on behalf of Allah, or the Prophet Allah, you set them not to speak on behalf of them inaccurately without surety, without, you know, concise, and precise wording and reference on all of those things, you've got to be accurate, you've got to be precise, especially when you're speaking on behalf of Allah's religion. You know, we live in a time where people just say what's on their mind, preach and teach what they feel or believe is, right. Unfortunately, a lot of that has found its way into Islam. So you can like when you're on YouTube, or on social media, you'll always

00:05:57--> 00:06:41

come across certain videos, and certain, you know, posts of people just saying really weird and bizarre things, and attaching Islam to them, or attaching Allah to them. And Islamophobes love to do this, you know, take things out of context and quote them and make reference to them towards things that have absolutely no relevance to the verse, or to Islam as a whole. So, that's really important. So that's the first lesson for you and I, as to how we relate to such a verse, okay. The second point is people are supposed to obey the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and the divinely appointed leader,

00:06:43--> 00:07:28

and be affected by false news. So here's the second point, when we hear things that are inaccurate, that are just wrong or false against Allah, or the Prophet RNA. So that was, what is the first responsibility for somebody of faith and Amen, you're supposed to respond, and you're supposed to say or speak out are correctly like, the point is, you've got to do something about that. You can't just sit there, and especially when Allah gave you the knowledge, but the person who's spreading this misinformation, doesn't know what they're talking about, or has been completely misinformed. Again. Islamophobes love to do that. Sometimes, a lot of times, actually, it's intentional, but

00:07:28--> 00:08:15

sometimes they're just as confused as the next person. So it's great that you as an individual who is versed on the subject, that you're able to respond and say something that no, no, that's not what Muslims believe. That's not what we practice. That's not who we are, so on and so forth. So that's another lesson behind when the Prophet or Allah is telling us that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is a monster missed the Prophet, take a look at this area in social X, A and B, you will be meaning means enforcing him, the prophet is closer to the believers than themselves. That's the attitude of all of us. So little hoogenraad helps us to establish that closeness and love and connection with

00:08:15--> 00:09:01

the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. So the question at the bottom that you see there, how do Muslims today relate to verse seven? These are some of the things to keep in mind. Now let's continue with the verse. So that's why I'm a frequent Rasulullah Lo, your two year old confy, Kathy REM Meenal, Emery learned tune. So here's the thing, if the Prophet alayhi salatu salam were to fulfill all of our requests, everything that's on our minds, everything that we wanted or desired, if he just responded and gave it to us or approved it all, Allah says that you are going to, like it's not going to be good for the Prophet is ultra slim, but you yourself are going to be destroyed and

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

you'll destroy everything around you. Because take a look at the

00:09:05--> 00:09:36

lair and tomb. If he were to fulfill all of your requests, you will surely suffer the consequences. In other words, you're going to probably start seeing things and doing things that you yourself, were not able to see the consequences until you fell into that thing and then you realize, Wow, look how I thought this was good for me. And it really wasn't. There are millions of examples that we can share with this right. One very obvious example is eating pork.

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

It is well known there are several studies endless studies online you can read you have access to of the effects on the body and our overall health by consuming porque. All of the diseases, all of the ailments, all of the sicknesses, all of this that's been directly associated with consuming pork.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Meet. Then secondly,

00:10:03--> 00:10:14

when it comes to alcohol when it comes to smoking when it comes to just general bad habits, the overall effects of that on our health, on our body on our livelihood,

00:10:15--> 00:11:05

the effects of using kind and peaceful language, not just when it feels comfortable, but especially in times when it's uncomfortable. Alesse still tells us Palu said that you respond with some kind of peaceful, dignified way, so that you can defuse an intense situation, just through your voice, just through the way that you respond. I think that's just like, that's absolutely remarkable. So Islam helps us to practice and be part of things that you and I may not necessarily be able to see the outcome today, but we'll eventually see the outcome later on. So it's really important. That's why this a highlight some of those things, the next lesson behind that, of course, is Allah is raising

00:11:06--> 00:11:48

the status of the Prophet already. So it was like, if you obey Him, and you follow his instructions, and you trust Him, then you're ultimately going to be led on a path, that not only the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is pleased but it is pleased that who else please guys, Allah subhanho wa taala. And that's the goal, like you want to please Allah at the end of the day. And Allah tells us, this is the example that you need to follow through. And if you choose other examples, you're surely going to suffer as a result. When I came to LA have Baba la como, amen. I love this part of the verse guys, let's take a look at here and if the truth had been in accordance with their desire, so

00:11:48--> 00:12:34

this is a verse that I put here from student mean on whether we devalue helpful F word a lot faster, that is, word two will auto the woman fi him just just look at this, it just confirms everything that we've been saying in terms of following your own thoughts and desires and conclusions, right. And if the truth had been in accordance with their desire, so if they followed what they felt was right, verily, the heavens and the earth and whatever is in there in would have been corrupted left facet, that is what to wear out of the woman for him, they would have destroyed the entire Earth, above and within an all throughout the land, meaning we would cause our own destruction. We would

00:12:34--> 00:12:43

destroy everything around that's how dependent we are in Islam, and with these instructions, you know, sometimes

00:12:45--> 00:13:30

people will say to you, you know, you guys, you guys follow Islam right down to the tee, you know, a man came to southern man and Pharisee, or all the love or and said, you know, you guys have a prophet that even teaches you how to go to the bathroom. So this man wanted to make fun of the Prophet Ali's autosol wanted to ridicule and embarrassed, not just him, but embarrass his followers. So he's like, your own prophet tells you how to go to the bathroom, serious. That's how much he's got to babysit you. That's what he was trying to get across. And so man unfairly singled out the loved one didn't get into well, you know, if you go to the bathroom, and you sit a certain way, it's

00:13:30--> 00:14:18

good for the digestive system. It's good for he didn't get into none of that. You know what he said? He responded to this man and said, Neram, yes, with affirmative with a furmity. Like, there's no like, if you have a problem with it, you have a problem with that. But I commit myself to his instructions. Because of me like this. I don't want to be a victim of corruption. And I don't want to suffer or make the wrong mistake later down the line to the best of my ability. And the best way that I can assure myself that I'll be okay is once I follow the instructions of our prophet or a solid will sit on that pen down pandemic is a perfect example of all of this. When the pandemic

00:14:18--> 00:14:46

first started, everybody was wondering how are we going to cope with this? What are we going to do? How are we going to get by in life? And so so many questions in Islam already tackled this problem with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, what does he tell us in an authentic hadith? If you are in a place where there is a plague then do not travel out? And if you are traveling out then do not go to a place that you know, there's an outbreak there's a plague.

00:14:48--> 00:15:00

That's isolation that's locked down. Subhan Allah, you know, government's put us on lockdown now we've been put on lockdown since 1400 years ago. And the Prophet dallisa to Islam is teaching

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

As this of this stuff before we even knew what a plague was, let alone experience it. So that's the consequence of trusting the message. And I hope that I'm sure all of us were grateful for that desire to.

00:15:17--> 00:16:11

Then unless this was a young couple will be on the air, he continues and he says that he beautified it in your hearts want to Allah akinola have Baba la como men, Allah made you love faith. How did he make you love faith, with everything we've been talking about, about trusting it, committing yourself to it, so on and so forth? What ends up happening? When you learn more about Islam, you learn and start to develop a love for Islam. The more you learn about this Deen, the more love you develop for this Diem. And Allah tells us in another a in sudut earlier in Ron Paul in Quinton to hipbone Allah, if you claim that you love Allah, factor, be early, then follow me meeting the

00:16:11--> 00:17:07

Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, your people come along? Then as a result of doing that? Your Allah will love you back. Why don't fibrillar cuando Luba and Allah would forgive all of your sins and your mistakes Subhan Allah, this exact same thing. But with that love, look how Allah describes what faith does to your heart. Allah says was a no se Yana from Xena. Sina is, you know, like a pretty face a beautiful face. That's called Xena. Xena is also the most beautiful decorations you can think and imagine. It's called Xena. Anything that is beautiful Helen and pleasing to the eyes is considered to be Xena. Allah says that now this is something that we learn about our faith. Amen. is

00:17:07--> 00:17:43

beautiful. And that beautiful that beauty lies in the heart. So how does this look? And how does this feel? You know, sometimes it's tough to pray and pray on time. What can we all go through that. But there'll be days when you're praying, and you're just doing the movements, you just you're trying your best, but it's just one of those dates and you hope for the best you get yourself done, and so on and so forth. The physical action might feel a bit stressful from time to time, the action itself, but to your heart

00:17:44--> 00:18:20

has faith to the point where that never gets bored. That never gets exhausted. And it always feels good and always feels beautiful immune that at the end of the day. Despite that physically performing these actions might be tiring. Your heart never gets tired. That's because Allah made Eman beautiful in you. It's so beautiful. How do you feel after you read some horror? Like you go and you perform will do.

00:18:21--> 00:18:32

And then you sit down with almost half and you simply just start reading. And even if you read for five minutes, you just read lahi brothers and sisters, let me tell you,

00:18:33--> 00:18:37

nobody has ever recited the poor end.

00:18:38--> 00:19:31

genuinely and sincerely accept that ALLAH blessed that day. And if Allah wills will bless your entire life, you will always feel the effects of recitation throughout your day. No matter at what point of the day you've recite it, no matter how much of por en you've recite. As long as you make that exclusive private time for Allah, you start to see the remnants and the effects of that throughout your day. You just feel good. You just feel at peace. So that day is just beautiful. And you want to do it again the next day. You know where that feeling comes from? That's your faith. And the third thing that we saw, we learned that faith is beautiful. And the third thing about this

00:19:31--> 00:19:42

phrasing in the area is that that beauty Allah has to bless you with it. You cannot develop beauty,

00:19:43--> 00:19:56

the feeling of beauty beauty of a man in your heart. It's not something that you develop. Like you don't take a course and all of a sudden he man just feels different. You don't read a book and all of a sudden he man just feels different. No.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

That's something Allah has to give you is what is the lesson

00:20:00--> 00:20:34

say well I kin Allah have Baba la comunidad. It allowed you to love faith. And we see this every day. There's lots of people who claim to have faith. But prayer is like the last thing they're thinking about until they hear the other Ramadan and fasting is one thing but fasting throughout the year is unheard of, like they'll just never do it. They never go and take that extra month, when you have a man that Allah has beautified. Even doing the extra additional acts of worship, become easy become beautiful. So

00:20:37--> 00:20:45

I pray Allah subhanaw taala always in forever beautify our hearts with Amen. Allah whom I mean, okay, let's keep going.

00:20:46--> 00:21:34

A believer is always uncomfortable with the following. So there's three things that Allah subhanho wa Taala cause for the believer to feel uncomfortable and dislike. So these are three things mentioned in soda hoogenraad, that with amen, amen will always cause you to dislike and feel uncomfortable with these three things. Number one, cough up. So that's the opposite of Amen. So as long as you taste faith, you know, you have true faith, because only the thought of going elsewhere, it scares you. It makes you feel uncomfortable. And when you see people who are in the state of disbelief, and the things that they do to find joy and comfort in this world, you know, whether it

00:21:34--> 00:21:47

be to just party drink, go crazy, celebrate, go on the streets. And and, you know, the poor end uses a word moccasin. moccasin is the kind of person that was really pious

00:21:49--> 00:22:23

in tough times, and once things became easy, then they let themselves get loose, we're gonna see a lot of mock tested as this pandemic starts to go by why? Because there will always be a group of people amongst this nation, amongst humanity that just won't get that lesson. The Wake Up Call with the with the pandemic is just not going to wake them up, their hearts are dead. And ultimately, that leads to Cofer leads you to leave all of this so that beauty in our faith.

00:22:24--> 00:23:10

The believer wants the taste that and they have that this is one of the things they fear the most. So that's the first on the list. Then Allah says, well, for soup rebelliousness, forsook also comes from the word fiscal. And fiscal, is just think if I don't have anything here, I'm just think if you have like a fruit, and you leave it out for some time, and then it starts to get rotted and decayed and such, get all like, dirty and smelly and gross fungus and all of those things. That's what fist does. So this attitude of being rebellious, ultimately causes the individual to become corrupt in their behavior, and their decisions that they make, they eventually start to gain the spiritual mold

00:23:10--> 00:23:11

around their heart.

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

You know, you know what that looks like.

00:23:16--> 00:23:31

That's the kind of person who will listen to a talk like this or something on YouTube. And you know, the speakers sharing an ad or Hadith. And they're listening to it, and they just can't wait for it to finish.

00:23:32--> 00:24:20

Yes, they go for Jumar. And just the hook was only 15 minutes long. But did just can't wait that 15 minutes go by, oh my gosh, I need to get out of here. That kind of feeling big, their hearts can never get comfortable with reminders. You know, there are Muslims, many of them. They're allergic to reminders. You know, we say a dean and we'll see how Dean is to pass on reminders and advice. But when it comes time to give many of us or to hear that advice. A lot of Muslims just don't want to hear it. And if you give advice and it really calls out a particular attitude or behavior, they rebelled, they'll never talk to you again. They'll single you out with from others they may not give

00:24:20--> 00:25:00

you set out and again, they develop this sort of attitude with you. And all of this came because you had good intentions at the end of the day. That's full suit in the heart. And that's one of the things that a believer that has true genuine faith is scared of you don't want to be in this category. Right? Because it means that you're not willing to learn, you're not willing to be reminded and when you hear good advice you get offended right away, that is not from a believer, not from someone who possesses Amen. And finally, Allah continues that the third thing the believer gets extremely

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

frightened and uncomfortable with is whether it's cn, or is cn is the current is one of the names for sins. And it's the end encounters some more of a generic court that encompasses all forms of sins. So the end of the day, major or minor, it doesn't matter. The believer who has their hearts beautified with Amen? does not see the difference. Like they don't see the difference between major and minor since, unfortunately, again, lots of Muslims do that. Oh, that's not a big deal. It was just one curse word. I said no big deal. It was just one thing I did. I just backbite it once. Like, Allah isn't gonna hold me stop all of my deeds just because of this one thing. No, just let it go.

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

Some Muslims talk like that.

00:25:55--> 00:26:03

And the person with true even true faith, never talks like never talks like that.

00:26:04--> 00:26:17

Even the little things. They're like, Oh, my God. Their whole days ruined is just like, I can't believe I cursed. I can't believe I let my anger get to me. I can't believe I lost my patience. It was the first time but

00:26:18--> 00:26:34

I shouldn't have done it. It doesn't feel good. I heard that person. I said some offensive things. That's what the believer does. That's what he does to you. Amen makes the major and minor things feel exactly the same way. You don't see you don't categorize the different Subhanallah so beautiful.

00:26:37--> 00:26:41

Then Allah continues, let me go back to the eye so we can make sure that

00:26:42--> 00:26:45

we've captured everything that we want.

00:26:46--> 00:27:30

With Asuka willory Sia, Willa, eco Houma. Rashi doing and those are the ones that are rightly guided rush there is somebody who has several options in front of them, and they take the right direction. So you think that okay, if I go this side or that side, they're both going to take me to the same place, or rush it is when Allah guides you to the best route possible. It's so beautiful. And that's actually one of the blessings of fasting in the month of Ramadan and going through the month of Ramadan is at the very end, the believer will say well, that eco formoterol Shido like those are the people that Allah Subhana Allah says in sort of Allah Allah Kumi of Shodo, love me offshoots. So

00:27:30--> 00:28:05

that perhaps in sha Allah, they will be directed towards the best possible route or direction, right? It's one of the blessings we get from Ramadan, the next day of fall bla min Allah He went there and met, this is a bounty of blessing from Allah. Yes, yes, we see it. And with your help and guidance, we will enjoy it and reap the benefits. Will law who are the one team and Allah is all knowing and all wise. Okay, next, a, take a look at what's going to happen now.

00:28:09--> 00:28:11

So let's summarize a couple of things.

00:28:13--> 00:29:10

We've talked about what happens when you hear news of any kind of any of any nature, and you're unsure of the accuracy of what you've just heard. We talked about the responsibility of ensuring that you always verify and clarify. With that being said, Allah then took us into a verse about our faith, and about our level of commitment and devotion to the instructions of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And with that being said, we now talked about three things that the believer is always uncomfortable with Cofer for so while nCn So three things now, all of that's been said and done. So we've taken care of the heart we taking care of your commitment, your actions now, take a

00:29:10--> 00:29:32

look what what comes next. When you have brothers and sisters that are able to cooperate and get along for the sake of Allah. It is nothing except their faith that brought them together. What is the next possible outcome? What immediately follows that? Promise problems?

00:29:33--> 00:29:48

This is where the problems begin. Take a look at the area. Allah then says what in PA if I turn the mean l mean pathetically low for us Lee who been there?

00:29:49--> 00:29:53

And if two groups of believers fight each other,

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

fight each other. Then make peace between them fall asleep Rubina for each

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

Bell hot

00:30:02--> 00:30:21

aisle o Hara, for car T Letty to the hat, Taffy Isla Emery love but if one of them transgresses against another, then fight against the transgressing group until they are willing to submit to the rule of law

00:30:22--> 00:30:22

for

00:30:24--> 00:30:56

falsely who they never hear, we hear it again fall asleep called the NAMA Biller, adding what others see to in Allah who you will notice the thing. If they do so then make peace between both groups, in all fairness and act justly. Surely Allah loves those who uphold justice. So the Arabic translation, let's get into this brotherhood comes with struggle comes with problems. You know why comes with problems?

00:30:57--> 00:30:58

Because we're human beings.

00:30:59--> 00:31:48

We will always have problems. Do you guys agree? If you do, let me know in the chat box. We will always have problems. The Prophet Ali's thought was up, did he have problems with companions? Did Were there people amongst him Mecca and Medina. That misunderstood him, accused him, blamed him, threatened him backbiting against talked about him, planned against him. You know, you know, conspiracies against it like everything. And he is the highest a hulking let the best of the creation of Allah. And this is all he's still subjected to the same problems that any average layman Muslim like meeting you were subjected were subjected to. So there's going to be problems. That's

00:31:48--> 00:32:15

human nature. So that's not the issue here. The issue is, the two groups of believers fight each other. Right, they both get into a problem and they go at it, they fight each other. So now you have a and b. So take a look at the bottom. Group A is fighting with Group B. But then there's a third group that Allah says falsely who Bina

00:32:17--> 00:32:28

Asli home. So we're talking about the Arabic phrase that you guys see there. So take a look at the cursor. This phrase right here, that's where we're going to talk about right now. Right?

00:32:29--> 00:32:40

If you look at the AI, Allah says, for us to be who being Natalina. So may then make peace between them. So we got to talk about that

00:32:42--> 00:33:04

is this AI is left literally means to bring the relationship back to what it was. So it's not just fixing the problem. But then the person holds grudges against you for the rest of your life, but you get along. No, that's not this

00:33:06--> 00:33:17

is law. You fix the problem and be done with it. So that you never have to go back to that problem. Again, you move forward from that issue.

00:33:18--> 00:33:52

Asli, who is you never bring up that problem five or 10 years down the line, which is what a lot of married couples do. Remember, 16 years ago, what you said to me, remember five years ago, you said this to your mom about me? It's like, that's been already done. It happened. It was fixed. But hatch that problem all over again. That's not a slug. Slug is peace. But you also put that moment in the past and move forward. That's what we're supposed to do.

00:33:53--> 00:34:15

Easier said than done, isn't it? Unfortunately, just almost never works out that way. Why? That's a whole nother story. Right? I know some reasons why we all know some reasons why. But unfortunately, that's just the bottom line. It's just the way things are these days. But still, it's not an excuse, what are the less they fall asleep. Here's the third thing about Slack. You have to try

00:34:16--> 00:34:18

you have to do something.

00:34:19--> 00:34:35

You can't just sit there and allow a problem to linger. And in hopes that it'll disappear over time. Because that creates another issue which is you don't have time. Me and you we don't have time.

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

Because we don't know the next hour the next few hours the next day. We don't know we have no guarantee of any of that. So Asli Whoa, take a look at the area guys. Alright, so everything that I'm sharing with you is directly from this a, and a lot of it is also with the Arabic as well. When path taught if a terminal tattoo

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

So these two groups aren't going at each other. Allah didn't say, Okay, let them fight until they get tired, then intervene.

00:35:09--> 00:35:17

Allah didn't say, wait a couple days till their anger settles till their problems settle, then intervene.

00:35:18--> 00:35:57

What does Allah do? Allah subhanho wa Taala says, fat obviously heard that letter fat that's attached to the word asleep. That letter fat is to indicate there's no hesitation in between the moment you see these two groups, two brothers, these two Muslims, these two people fighting each other, you've got to especially if you are able to, like you're there you're seeing and witnessing and you have a voice, you have knowledge of maturity, you're able to intervene the right way, you're not going to go take sides, you're not going to be part of the fight. No, no.

00:35:58--> 00:36:24

Because if you end up joining the fight, Allah is going to talk about you in a minute, let's gonna address that in a minute. But the point here is no hesitation. That's what we learn is and even psychologists teach us this all the time, that you never allow a problem to linger too long. Because the longer you take to resolve a problem, the more difficult it takes to resolve that problem.

00:36:25--> 00:37:09

So the longer you leave it, the longer and more difficult it will become, for you to address it. That's what happens with time. You know, you know how we say, you know, time heals, or time will allow you to forget, well, that's what's happening. Eventually this problem, it was a big problem. And then as the days and the months and the years go by became smaller, and smaller and smaller until it disappeared, nobody addressed the problem, nobody intervene. And as a result, these two groups just moved on with their life, and they never talk to each other again, that is something that is completely unacceptable in our religion, especially if you're somebody that calls yourself

00:37:09--> 00:37:19

Muslim. And in addition to that, you call yourself a believer, well, this is an extension of that belief. Then Allah continues, and he says, For in Bellet, down there.

00:37:20--> 00:37:22

So take a look at what happened here.

00:37:24--> 00:37:39

So fighting, take a look at the bottom here that I wrote, guys, fighting a fellow Muslim is like fighting yourself, right? Because they have Amen. They're Muslim, you're Muslim. So in essence, who are you fighting, you're literally fighting yourself, unacceptable in the sight of Allah.

00:37:41--> 00:37:43

Then Allah says that look.

00:37:45--> 00:38:16

So you have three groups, you have the two groups fighting, then you have the third group that intervenes, so the imbalance doesn't matter. I offer katello Lady for particular lady tablea. But if one of them transgresses against the other than fight against the transgressing group, until they are willing to submit to the rule of Allah, you know, what just happened here. So group A, group B are fighting, Group C intervened. And when Group C intervened, guess what they did, Group C started to fight Group A.

00:38:17--> 00:39:02

So Group B now has to make a slot. So that's what Allah makes reference to. So if one of them one of these groups now, so there's three of them, if one of them transgresses against the other, so it doesn't matter if a and b are going at it anymore. If any of the three now he gets mixed up now and they're all three are going at each other, then there has to be one that says, You know what, we've got to stop this. So if the three groups now three individuals are going at each other, one of them has to be mature. That's the whole idea of this. One of them has to take it upon themselves to say, Okay, we got to stop this. This is not right. This is not the way to behave. This is not the way to

00:39:02--> 00:39:25

ask because why we're Muslims. We're brothers, we're sisters. We're brothers and sisters and faith. We worship the same creed, we have the same thing in our hearts. It's like we're fighting each other. Somebody has to do that. Somebody has to say that so there always has to be that one mature adult within this group. So what's that mature adults responsibility? Well, look what Allah says.

00:39:28--> 00:39:47

Transition until they are willing to submit to the rule of law and if they do so then make peace between both groups. Allah then says okay, so that mature one that decides enough is enough, okay, we got to do something and stop this, but also the Hubei number. Allah said it again twice. It is not common, although it does happen.

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

It's not common throughout the core en for Allah subhanho wa Taala to repeat the same wording in one. It does happen in a few areas here and there.

00:40:01--> 00:40:16

but it's not a common theme or pattern throughout the Quran. So when you do see a repetitive sentence or wording in one area, that's Allah saying to you and I, this is what a blessing to you, and if

00:40:17--> 00:40:23

you didn't listen the first time, so I'm going to repeat myself again. But honestly,

00:40:25--> 00:40:27

only this time, only this time

00:40:29--> 00:40:54

Bill add what AquaSeal to Allah added two things to keep in mind. It's like, okay, fine. If you're going to do this, you didn't listen really the first time when I told you to make soil, fix this problem, then the third group got involved and you became part of the problem, then somebody else now had to be like, Okay, let's be mature and solve this a different way, though that person now has got to take into consideration the following.

00:40:55--> 00:41:33

Taffy. So repairing problems in brotherhood always requires three things. According to the number one taffy. Taffy is when you're repairing something, and your intention is to go back to the good. So you're not just trying to fix the problem. And then okay, look, as long as so it looks like that's like one person says, Look, do you hate that person? Because you guys were fine. You hate him? He says no. Did he go to the other group? Do you hate him? They say no. They said, Okay, fine, then follow us. Let's leave it alone. No, you may have resolved a problem of them physically fighting.

00:41:35--> 00:41:37

But they're not going to be friends anymore.

00:41:39--> 00:41:45

When they see each other, at the masjid, at the dinner, wherever, they're not going to sit beside each other.

00:41:46--> 00:41:59

They're not even going to talk to one another. So toughy is, not only do you fix and resolve the problem, but you've got to go back to where the friendship and the Brotherhood was.

00:42:01--> 00:42:03

Amazing. Oh, man, I got to drink some more tea.

00:42:08--> 00:42:09

Amazing.

00:42:10--> 00:42:11

Just imagine

00:42:13--> 00:42:31

all the ways like we solved our problems this way. Just imagine Subhanallah the amount of sincerity and cooperation that is manifested when problems are resolved in this way. That's just the first instruction. The first requirement Allah gave us still two more that's coming.

00:42:32--> 00:42:49

But that one alone. My goodness SubhanAllah. It is just it's it's truly remarkable. Unless not only do I want you to fix your problem, but go back to the Brotherhood the way it was. That's a sign of sincerity for the sake of Allah.

00:42:50--> 00:43:02

So 10 years down the line. It's not going to be any of Yeah, 10 years ago, this is what he did to me, we got into a physical fight and enable him to tell the story because the story will be forgotten.

00:43:03--> 00:43:51

And then number two, Allah says Bill idle, there are two words for justice in the Quran idle n up aceto case. So two words, remember them? Okay, I did open transparent public justice. Okay, so the kind of justice that everybody can be a witness to and see that these two individuals have been treated fairly. And now they cooperate like it's been publicly made, and witnessed. It doesn't mean that you have to resolve the problem in front of an audience No, but at least people will see that things have been dealt with in a fair manner, because these two individuals who are fighting are now good friends, and now they're cooperating and so on and so forth. Right? And then up as the two is

00:43:51--> 00:44:16

done, public and private justice, so you stay away from all types of unfairness. So in addition to that, if you see the need to then you deal with it also in a private way, look at the bottom what I wrote there, guys, when Muslims make peace, that is the command of Allah, violating that peace, peace, equal equals and violating the Command of Allah. So just keep that in mind. Okay, guys.

00:44:21--> 00:45:00

This is what true brotherhood looks like. This is one of my favorite yet of the entire Koran. I know. Those of you that study with me, I know you kind of you hear me say that quite often. And I don't know. I guess that's just how it is right? There's so many areas. Now once you tap into its beauty, you tap into the Tafseer you're just blown away. It's just truly amazing to see just what ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala wants for us and what he instructs us to do and things like that. In the moment Mina, Ella, for us Lee who been a Hawaii con with double La La La Contura kamoun. The believers are but one

00:45:00--> 00:45:11

brotherhood. So make peace between your brothers and be mindful of Allah. So you may be shown mercy. So take a look at the bottom. At the end of the day, don't brothers fight?

00:45:12--> 00:45:15

Don't like siblings fight each other all the time?

00:45:17--> 00:45:19

Don't they annoy each other all the time.

00:45:20--> 00:46:11

They get on each other's nerves all the time. So what Allah What does Allah say? First of all, look at how the began, why didn't Allah call them brothers? says in the main meaning, not in the main one. In the middle would mean a lot called them believers, people with the quality of aemet they don't just believe it's a quality in them. That's you moment, you're not a Latina. amoun you're not just somebody that recognize the right thing to do. But not necessarily do it. No. You're actually someone that has the quality of I don't want to harbor any hatred for any of my brothers and sisters, especially those in faith. I, I don't want to harbor any sort of animosity or hatred for

00:46:11--> 00:46:22

anybody. Yet you're you are this a you know, Allah's talking to you? And hopefully all of us, right? No matter mean, then Allah uses the word it what?

00:46:24--> 00:46:27

It what is, as you see your biological brother?

00:46:29--> 00:46:32

Ah, one is your brother in faith.

00:46:34--> 00:47:16

Ella, your blood brother, your biological sibling, brother. So look at the AYA. What is Allah telling us the kind of brother brotherhood that he is expecting the kind of sisterhood he is expecting from all of us? You don't just kind of lay some eggs in good faith and walk away? No, no, no, you have to be genuinely cautious and careful with your relationship with your community brothers and sisters, this same way. You are cautious and careful with the relationship of your own siblings you live with

00:47:17--> 00:47:18

Subhan Allah

00:47:20--> 00:47:23

Who thinks of brotherhood like that? Who thinks of sisterhood like that?

00:47:25--> 00:47:32

Because if somebody like if somebody is in need, somebody is in need of our help.

00:47:34--> 00:47:36

If they're our sibling, that's one thing.

00:47:37--> 00:48:12

But use your brother in faith, I need some help. Would you spare something? Did you help me? How do we react to the like the immediate reaction? I'm not saying like, just throw yourself out there. You know, be naive and just throw yourself and just give away? No, no, there's still a responsibility factor. The Koran also tells us you know, don't extend your arm. Well, that doesn't have cool Elbasan bosta. But don't just extend your arm and just give away. But at the same time, don't choke yourself. Don't be stingy. And Allah doesn't restrict that behavior to just a certain group like with everybody.

00:48:14--> 00:48:19

So what is probably one of the most important words in this area.

00:48:21--> 00:48:44

But Asli, who's been a highway cop, there's a third time in to a third time we're being told this and make peace between your brothers main boycott, or tupple law. Because if you do that, when you genuinely tried to fix your differences between your brothers and sisters, when you genuinely put forth the effort

00:48:45--> 00:49:30

that is a reflection of true Eman, true care and love for one another. So if you are concerned that you may have said or done something to a fellow brothers, brother or sister, and one day you see them and you kind of approached him, you know, in a civilized way and just say hey, look, son, I'm really cool mom, can we talk and you try to do it and you handle it privately. Right if if that's the appropriate way to approach it, or as we said in the previous A, you try to attain justice, whether it be publicly or privately, whatever works best. But the point is, you make that effort for still to try to repair and bring peace. That's what Allah wants.

00:49:32--> 00:49:35

This these a really important point okay.

00:49:36--> 00:50:00

These a yet are not instructing us to physically change anyone to enforce these laws down their throat, because at the end of the day, can we force anybody? Can we force anybody to change? We can't force anyone to change. Allah is

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

Jab Jab button is physically altering and shaping something to your own liking. Only Allah does that because one of His Names is jetboat.

00:50:11--> 00:50:14

So we can't do any of them.

00:50:15--> 00:50:21

What Allah is asking and expecting from us is to put forth the effort.

00:50:23--> 00:50:44

And if you do that, that is an extension of your taqwa as well. How did the A and what talkin la, la la come talk. So you have Taqwa. Be conscious of your Creator, that perhaps Insha Allah, Allah will be will show you mercy.

00:50:45--> 00:50:50

You know, the Mercy conversation, I mean, Mercy on Allah.

00:50:51--> 00:51:43

Allah calling himself a ramen and a Rahim in associating this attribute to Him Subhan without is the most common of the entire Quran. So the description that is most common in the entire poor end of Allah is that he is he is the source of mercy. You know what that means? Always remember that to think of mercy as not just Allah sparing you from something terrible. But even when you go through something difficult, or something terrible, that Allah still shows you mercy by giving you the strength, the knowledge that patients to get through that difficulty. That's a lot. That's an extension of Allah's mercy. All of us need that. As a matter of fact, I personally believe including

00:51:43--> 00:52:24

myself, a lot of us would have not made it to this point. In this pandemic, if it wasn't for Allah's mercy, like, you could have taken all precautions, but emotionally and mentally, like your mental health really took a toll. And perhaps it continues to, but it really took a toll with isolation and lockdown and restrictions, not being able to go to the masjid, not being able to have a wedding not being able to go to social gatherings, meeting other people talking, engage, like all the stuff that we need to just keep ourselves feeling seen, and our mental health strong. All of that stuff was taken away.

00:52:25--> 00:52:37

And then there are some people who are able to cope with that. So they knew how to like, navigate and get through and Fine, keep themselves busy and occupied. And then there was many,

00:52:38--> 00:52:40

many people who just couldn't.

00:52:41--> 00:53:03

And if you're of the first category, it's an extension of Allah's mercy. And if you're in the second category, it means that you still have to keep pushing yourself. Keep striving so that you become a candidate of that mercy in sha Allah as long as you are alive. As long as we are alike, we are always candidates of Allah's mercy.

00:53:04--> 00:53:12

That's like a fact. As long as you are still breathing, we still are here and we wake up

00:53:13--> 00:53:26

till Allah subhanho wa Taala wills, we are always candidates of Allah's mercy and Allah's forgiveness. So when it comes to our brotherhood and our relationships with each other,

00:53:28--> 00:53:56

take a look at the sentence that I put at the bottom there. Allah's command is to make peace amongst yourselves. That's his command, just like Allah tells us to fast. He tells us up Pima Sala will add to Zeca tells you to pray tells you to fast tells you to do all of this. The same instruction is given us to us to make peace with each other lets us fall asleep.

00:53:57--> 00:54:00

Being in a hallway could like oh, I order you to do something

00:54:02--> 00:54:13

less says that tell us to go change each other none will slow. The result of the slash is Allah's control. Like Allah decides what the outcome of that is.

00:54:14--> 00:54:15

So with that being said, guys,

00:54:16--> 00:54:21

here is where we will pause in sha Allah. And what I'm going to do

00:54:23--> 00:54:24

is

00:54:26--> 00:54:59

let me take a look at okay, hold on, let me just get out of this. So what you see in front of you there guys, that is next week's A. So next week in sha Allah, we will get into verse number 11 In sha Allah. This is about respect for all of mankind. But what ended up happening in verse number 11 is, um, people in general started to develop a habit of the way they talk about each other. And you're going to see a lot of that in this area. Some of the things that

00:55:00--> 00:55:48

you or someone you know, might be doing just out of sheer habit, there's no ill intentions behind it. But it just became a habit. It's just the way that you talk and you talk about people to Allah, it has become offensive. This area we'll call it out. So it's gonna call out the kind of behaviors and attitude that mankind had adapted to that ultimately are and have always been offensive and disrespectful in the sight of Allah. That's this ad this ad and of course what follows that is going to be the a of Lieber and so much more like this guy's my shell really, really jam packed. So look forward to that in sha Allah Tala for next week and

00:55:49--> 00:56:37

I hope and I pray to see all of you be as Neela Same time, same place Insha Allah, Allah Okay, those. So I will leave you with that. I will take a look at your comments. Be in the lead ITAR Allah and if you have any questions, please drop them in the comment section or you can email me [email protected] That's my email. Just drop me a line line and let me know what's going on. And may Allah subhanaw taala continue to bless us and honor us. Give us the strength, the sincerity May Allah subhanho wa Taala beautify always beautify our faith in our hearts and in our lives. May Allah subhanho wa Taala strengthen the bond between us any fallout any mistakes, any problems that you or

00:56:37--> 00:57:05

I may have with our fellow brother or sister in faith. I pray that Allah subhanaw taala gives us the strength, the knowledge, the ability to repair those problems and to bring the relationship to a point where Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with Allah on Amin, just like Malabo, hey guys, I leave you with that. Take care stay safe. May Allah azza wa jal bless you all was salam. Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
