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

load of men or women hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. Marla Edie, he will be here woman wila. Baron, once again to everyone, so I'm already walking to work, but

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

how is everyone doing? Today?

00:00:21--> 00:00:22

That's a good question.

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

I wish I had the answer.

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

It wasn't a new classroom, it was to kind of rearrange things.

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

You know, and

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

it's a good question and I'm sorry, I just, I don't know.

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

You know, what I will do is we will find out.

00:00:54--> 00:00:54

Okay.

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

So,

00:01:02--> 00:01:06

if I remember correctly, are we at verse 25?

00:01:07--> 00:01:12

And we've taken verse 25. Okay. So let's retract here.

00:01:15--> 00:01:15

Okay.

00:01:18--> 00:01:38

Okay. So, in a nice, short and concise paragraph, someone talked to me about where are we, at in this bit with this particular surah? What have we been talking about what has been an important terms of our discussion and journey through the themes of the surah?

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

Not all of you at once.

00:01:46--> 00:01:54

Well, what's we're at, we've taken 24 verses of the sutra. So what have we

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

learnt about the sutra thus far?

00:01:59--> 00:02:01

Just say whatever comes to your mind.

00:02:03--> 00:02:06

Okay, good. So we were going with rights with our friends good.

00:02:08--> 00:02:09

inheritance, good.

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

Mm hmm.

00:02:14--> 00:02:20

Good, all the rights of women, inheritance orphans. And

00:02:21--> 00:02:28

so we've done verse 24, I'll even put in front of you there. We've done this verse.

00:02:30--> 00:02:44

And this verse brought out a very comprehensive term called mar sonet. marcionite is mentioned in a bunch of sutras. This is one of them. woman that is in marriage, or a woman who is in a decent household, Mark sonet.

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

And it's very different from zoologia.

00:02:50--> 00:03:00

mar sonet, is when we talk about a woman that is in a marriage, she's called a wife, isn't she? So why are we calling this person? A marsinah?

00:03:02--> 00:03:05

Huh? Why are they given this title?

00:03:06--> 00:03:09

Because this particular individual

00:03:11--> 00:03:17

is there's a unique situation about her. Does anybody remember what that was?

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

She was placed in a decent household, but why

00:03:26--> 00:03:30

she was protected. So why did how did she end up in that circumstance?

00:03:32--> 00:03:38

Good. So her family, which is her spouse, and anybody else,

00:03:40--> 00:04:18

had passed away, whether in battle or serving the dean or V sebelah. So this woman was pretty much kind of left no family, no one to protect no one to support her. She may even have children. So when a community or a an individual even, and this was a very common practice, then decided that okay, you know, we have space, we have money, we have the resources, let's take her in the car and allowed this. But how did this happen? Did it happen through a marriage? Or did they just say, hey, look,

00:04:19--> 00:05:00

you could come live with us, happens through what? Yeah, of course, it happened through a kneecap, right. So in other words, he was allowed to marry someone like this, for the purpose of not just, you know, having the connection and all of those things, but also even to provide the basic necessities that she had needed in order to survive really, and our messenger RNA slept with Scylla and some of his wives were like this, okay? Now, that doesn't mean that when there's some kind of marriage happens, that all of the other things that are important like the you know, the love and respect and all of those things are not important.

00:05:00--> 00:05:30

And not part of that relationship. They absolutely are. But this is one of the primary intentions or foundations of this kind of relationship. And so this is why Allah subhanaw taala gives it a different term. Okay? The right 10 possesses, we've discussed and it'll come up again, but in a very different in a very different light in sha Allah. So that's where we're at thus far. And then this particular term here, hi, Josephine, someone who cares about fulfilling their less than desire, what Allah say about this?

00:05:32--> 00:05:37

never married for this purpose, is that just restricted for these kinds of women more sonet?

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

Make sense, right? That's for everyone.

00:05:44--> 00:06:09

So we already talked about when you think about, you know, people who want to get married, because there's too much fitting outside, when they say things like that. Or they say that, you know, I just, I just need a girl or just need a guy in my life. Yeah, that's important. That's okay. That's not fundamentally a reason for marriage. You don't get married because of that. Why?

00:06:11--> 00:06:26

Because of everything else, that marriage brings the responsibility, the maturity, all of those factors. And it's very easy for somebody who focuses on late almost Effie hain to lose sight of all of that. I think Allah knows best. But you know,

00:06:27--> 00:06:44

this is something this is something that is very prevalent in Muslim societies, right? So that's why I wrote, marriage doesn't turn off fitness. But we live in a very impulsive society and must, people must be able to be able to

00:06:45--> 00:07:20

exercise, patience and restraint. So with that being said, that continues. Our next verse and my goal today insha Allah is to get to verse 34, because verse 34, I have prepared some material, but just focusing on one aspect of the verse Not really, you know, the entire verse and its history and things like that. So I really want to share that with you in sha Allah. So shall we begin? Okay, so Allah azza wa jal tells us so let's continue. Okay, so we're going at verse 25,

00:07:25--> 00:07:29

verse 25, woman let me play a min comb for women.

00:07:30--> 00:07:41

Okay, so whoever was not able to have the ability of financial means, and Yankee Hallmark Sana till midnight for me man malakut a man who min Fattah take home one minute

00:07:43--> 00:08:09

then marry from what your right hand possesses from the believing when on the land knows your state of Amen, you are a supportive cast of one another. Now before now, you obviously know what whatever you see red font, what that means, right? So just ensure that that is completing your notes. So this area continues with the same subject. And wherever was not able to have the ability of a financial means.

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

bowl literally comes from the world word bowl. And you can see this in your notes on page 30, I believe, which means height are expensive can also mean social physical capacity, but in this context, it's it's focused on the financial aspect. Then they should marry decent family, a decent family Muslim believing families then marry from what your right hand possesses. So the first option should be a decent family woman. Why is that important?

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

Married marry

00:08:39--> 00:09:23

with for the first option that you marry into a decent family Muslim home. It's obvious, right? That is the priority. What do you learn from this? When allies so a gel is telling you that when you marry, marry, because you want to be in a good decent family Muslim home? In essence, what is he telling you about the purpose and long term wisdom behind marriage? He's thinking ahead. He's, he's, he's encouraging and trying to stimulate you and I especially those who are not married, to think ahead. After you know how we say, the first few years, it's kind of like the honeymoon stage, you know, how we say that. And when things settle down, then what ends up happening. The marriage just

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

starts feeling like what, like a normal day to day relationship with somebody, you know, this is your spouse, this is your wife. So it's still unique, but it kind of goes into cruise control after that, after those few years, or autopilot, whatever you want to call it, right goes into that phase. Some people can embrace it and understand it. And for others, it actually does turn into a major dilemma in the marriage. You know, the fire is not as strong as it used to be, or in some cases, it doesn't even exist anymore, right? And this happens after some time. What this is

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

is helping us to to realize and focus on is that the ultimate goal of marriage is to serve the oma. It's for the betterment of this oma. It's not just to have children and be like, Okay, I'm going to teach them Islam or Salam or Aleikum, you know, and I'm good I've contributed No, it's whatever it is that you as now a family you know, husband and wife and inshallah children, what contribution can contribution has you, as a family now done for this woman? or what have you put out there, you have now become an additional family, and you connect yourself to this nation, the owner of Muslims, what have you done to serve that oma as a family, it's really important. So this is highlighted now, in

00:10:48--> 00:10:59

this particular verse that it when you marry, make sure that that is one of the primary reasons why you choose to marry. And then Allah continues

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

and continues.

00:11:03--> 00:11:05

And Allah knows your state

00:11:06--> 00:11:14

of Amen, you are a supportive cast of one another, so marry them by the permission of their families.

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

A lot of things happening here.

00:11:17--> 00:11:31

There's a lot of things happening, what's going on here. So now Allah is saying that he knows your state of he meant it almost sounds like a threat. Hey, I know exactly what's in your heart. So watch out.

00:11:33--> 00:11:40

How soon is a good start, don't take advantage of you know, these particular women.

00:11:46--> 00:11:47

Take advantage.

00:11:50--> 00:12:20

Okay, good. So one way in context, these are slave women. And these are women that once upon came once upon a time came from good families. So because all of that was lost, this area is literally saying, stop taking advantage or don't even think about because I know exactly what's in your heart. Even now, here's the thing. Listen to the language. It says that Allah knows your state of Amen, not your state of intentions.

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

Why highlights? Amen?

00:12:24--> 00:12:32

Don't some people till this day use Islam to justify some of their intentions and behaviors and marriages?

00:12:33--> 00:12:36

Oh, my God, your response says a lot. I heard

00:12:38--> 00:12:38

a long walk.

00:12:40--> 00:12:40

I heard that

00:12:42--> 00:12:44

you preach on brother. Okay, I got you.

00:12:46--> 00:13:17

So there are a lot of people who do that. And and by the way, your reaction, it actually speaks the reality of what what the situation is, and I and I'm totally with you and understand that. So this is a massive, massive subject. Unfortunately, it's even a subject we don't even we don't talk about as much as we should, about Muslims in general who use Islam to justify or disguise bad behavior, bad intentions, bad attitude.

00:13:19--> 00:13:45

And even to subjugate their wives. So in context, here, we're talking about the wives in particular, to give up certain rights, or just, this is my right to over you. So you just got to do what I say. And this is the way it is. And that's the end of that. So there's like this dictatorship control factor that easily starts to seep in to this kind of relationship. So

00:13:46--> 00:13:55

this is a this is a warning from Allah. I know exactly what you're doing. Another name for people like this is called casiotone.

00:13:56--> 00:14:02

Jin said wamena Muslim own woman, Nell casiotone.

00:14:04--> 00:14:56

From amongst us, gins, we have Muslims, but we also have what pass it on. Pass it on, is also this group is possibly to literally reflects to people who disguise and the disguise that they use is something that's very attractive. And in this case, in so little gentlemen, this is mentioned, the jeans are highlighting that from amongst us. We actually have gins that use Islam to disguise their evilness their evil nature. How do they do that? That's a whole nother subject. My point is, is that this reality is real. And in both worlds, in this world, as well as in the jinn world, so primal aura, and even they recognize it. So if James can call it out. Imagine how human beings the level of

00:14:56--> 00:15:00

shame that a relationship like this reaches that but

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

Not even called though.

00:15:02--> 00:15:53

This here in particular, is especially important for any of you who either know or might even be part of relationships like this. When Allah says, I know your state of Amen. Look what he says in the red font there. He says to us that you are supportive cast to each other. But I'll do Camembert barrel done there, I'm bud, this is what it means. My hand, this is barrel, the barrel when you're leaning on each other, kind of like what we do in Sala sort of right, we don't physically lean, but there is contact, that I'm here, we're doing the same thing. We're both standing in front of him. So because you share that kind of that that moment of support that is carried on and that is a general

00:15:54--> 00:16:39

attitude and behavior and intention for all Muslims, we always look out for one another. No one has to teach us that. But we certainly need to be reminded of that constantly, as much as possible. Because this part of the verse battledome in bow, if you notice, especially if you study Arabic, you'll notice it's almost like a sentence by itself. It's been separated from everything else in the verse, there's that tiny little gene that's sitting on between both bow the Camembert, if you look at it in Arabic, there's the tiny little gem at the top, on both ends. What that tells you is that you have the option of stopping there or stopping after the sentence, as if that's a sentence by

00:16:39--> 00:16:47

itself. As if Allah is saying, Hey, listen, if you don't get anything in this area, see what's in red font, get there.

00:16:48--> 00:17:08

So I kind of don't feel bad now that that's missing in your notes that I was forced to highlight it so you can make sure you have it. It's incredible. It's just amazing that that's what Allah chose to be missing audiobooks. And here we are highlighting. So that's what's really that's the the prime message of this verse. Okay.

00:17:09--> 00:17:51

Last point, move on. Why does Allah subhanho wa Taala like call this out to the Sahaba? Remember, suta Nisa is an early metody surah. So a lot of the laws that you're seeing in this sort of are not complete, they get completed in other chapters, they're introduced quite a bit, but they're not complete, you'll see that with respect to some of the other ones like inheritance, it's complete for the most part. So this is one of those areas. How are we a supportive cast to one another? What are the sahabas getting out of this? When they listen to this verse? They're already in Medina, they already have a good chunk of the surah.

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

Why is Allah telling you Hey, listen, you guys got to look out for one another.

00:17:56--> 00:17:59

This is the one thing that is the hardest to hold on to.

00:18:01--> 00:18:08

Just think about it, even today. This is the one thing that is the hardest to practice.

00:18:09--> 00:18:13

It's the hardest thing for the Muslim world to hold on to.

00:18:14--> 00:18:35

It's just at the end of the day, we are here to support one and other. We support each other in times of tragedy. Yeah, we do. At hamdulillah. We support each other in the good times, the blessed times of the year, when I'm old on aid, well, sort of Rite Aid, kind of,

00:18:36--> 00:18:46

depending on where you live, or what food you eat, or something like that the mood might be different for you. Right. So the point is, is that this is the one of the hardest lessons in the entire quarter. And

00:18:47--> 00:18:50

it's mentioned here, guess what other students mentioned in

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

soda tober.

00:18:54--> 00:19:37

Think of all the sodas a lot, put that phrase again, exactly the same wording in soda tober, the sutra of repentance, you mess up there, there's only one thing you can do. repent to Allah and get your act together and get back into this a, just that plain and simple. So this is an area that sahabas are being taught now that your community is expanding. Now people are getting married and they're not just getting married. I love you. You love me. Let's get married. There's some pretty interesting scenarios here that are unfolding. So at the end of the day, I know your state of Amen. So make sure your intention is right. But make sure make sure that if you see any of these issues

00:19:37--> 00:19:51

happening that you look out and you call it out, you call it out and the flip side of it even some even the positive things you encourage. Okay, thank you. We'll be isn't the alien. Here's the next instruction. Check this out.

00:19:54--> 00:19:58

So marry them by the permission of their families.

00:20:01--> 00:20:10

Is does? Does that sounds like different from what we're accustomed to? Isn't it? Usually Thank you who be easily be?

00:20:14--> 00:20:29

Isn't it usually seek permission from the dad? Because he's like a Willie right? Well here though, the isn't the ethylene, the whole family. So what's happening here?

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

That's how it started

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

this when he shipped this guardianship It started off that you had to seek out that you had to seek permission for marriage from every member of that family. Yeah, if one of the brothers said, I don't like, I don't like her, or I don't like him, the marriage is that it's invalid. Some of these rules, rules later about change in sorts of money then. And so it's a bucket as well, these rules got changed, where the father took a primary role in this subject. But still, technically, it's not 100% in his control, either, right. So it explains a lot more than that. Point. His point is, I want you to pay attention to this, that in this area, this metody, surah, 13 years after her and has been

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

revealed. Allah still says, Yeah, when you marry her, not Thank you home, it's specifically referring to whom,

00:21:33--> 00:21:49

the females, the wives, this is them, when less is that when you now want to marry that, if it's the other way around, the rules might be a bit more loose. According to some of the dilemma here, it doesn't seem like the same message is given the other way around.

00:21:51--> 00:21:53

But nevertheless, when it comes to her now,

00:21:55--> 00:22:40

Allah says, You know, I know exactly what's in your heart, a low RLM will be a man equal one bow, local member, you'll have to look out for each other your supportive cast one, three, that when you asked for her in marriage, make sure that her entire family is on board, however, of them remains. You know, what's interesting, is the most generic term in Arabic to describe family. It's not like putty bone, or Isla. So there's other terms that describe like your immediate family heirloom is, is pretty much everybody. It's the most generic to everybody you care and think of as family that live with you in the same household. It's kind of the same thing. So when it says, Go and ask your l go

00:22:40--> 00:22:48

and ask all the people that you still live with you and you live with them. So however, that looks Everybody with me so far.

00:22:49--> 00:22:52

How does this benefit us today?

00:22:53--> 00:22:55

Is there still some truth to this today?

00:23:00--> 00:23:36

Okay, so it's a consultation with the entire family. Do you agree? Would you enforce that? Or would you also, you know, kind of, kind of accept and consider, hey, listen, don't worry about her brothers. Yeah, they're all messed up. But her she is Mashallah. She's the she's the angel of the house. You just consecrate her? Yeah, her mother's a different story as well. Maybe I'm not so practicing. You know what, forget all of us. Masha Allah, she is the one that keeps the Islam together. So just focus on her.

00:23:37--> 00:23:44

What do you what's like, what do you do in a situation like that? I hope it's, I hope it should be like, it should be obvious.

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

You do nothing. Stay away from that.

00:23:50--> 00:23:56

In 2019, these rules are still in power and for a reason.

00:23:59--> 00:24:07

It's not like maybe once upon a time it was it was just two people. And back then,

00:24:08--> 00:24:52

however many years you want to go back, it was very easy for just the two people to come together marry. And they had the maturity to understand that they were going to adapt to whatever family that each side belong to that they had that kind of maturity, mentality attitude. There were no reservations. You know what, my mom encouraged me to marry you. My dad encouraged me to be part of them. So I'm gonna, you know, it was really that simple. Maybe 5060 years ago, maybe some of our parents and grandparents could tell us those stories. That's how they got married. Yeah, I didn't even know where he came from. But he was a good man. He was the only mmm in the entire village and

00:24:52--> 00:24:55

all he knows is a couple suitors. So I married him.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

Something tells me the sound

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

It's familiar. I don't know.

00:25:04--> 00:25:07

I'm just I'm just throwing things out. Okay, there's no

00:25:09--> 00:25:13

there's no hidden pun in any of this, like, I'm just throwing it out there. Point is, is that

00:25:14--> 00:25:17

5060 years later, they're still married.

00:25:18--> 00:25:30

You know, and kids grandkids. Yeah, there might be some hardships there. But the point is that relationship still for what ever reason stayed intact.

00:25:32--> 00:25:46

So, there is definitely some truth to this now, because that kind of maturity is really hard to find. I don't know if I can say it's completely lost, but I never ever, ever in my life

00:25:47--> 00:26:18

would have advised anybody to get married any other way. Except, hey, make sure it's the whole family. All the brothers and sisters and relatives and uncles yet even the most annoying one. Yeah, try to see if you can get to know him a little. So, thank you, it will be alien. Number 412101. And give them their due compensation. ie what is the the mahute? Right. Who Judah hoonah. One of the names of Mahara again, right agilan

00:26:19--> 00:26:25

How do we use eduroam? To describe what blessings and rewards from Allah don't mean?

00:26:26--> 00:27:10

That's the same mess. That's the same name for the mouth. So the matter is not just a gift now. It's also a what? It's a beautiful blessing from Allah to her. See, you see how much more meaningful it comes when you look at these different terms just by definition, just by names alone. Okay, well, that's a who knows your own lessons, give them their compensation, Bill maroto. How many times have we come across that word now? So here we go my roof once again. So we've already talked about the more sonet in Ohio Mousavi hat, which we've just come across again, same message reiterated which core en does quite often. What am What does he that he has done?

00:27:13--> 00:27:21

And neither of those who commit unlawful relations, nor those who take secret lovers.

00:27:23--> 00:27:25

In 2019, what's that called?

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

an affair or

00:27:29--> 00:27:34

hot girl dating or courting? Or what are the names now that they have?

00:27:35--> 00:28:16

boyfriend girlfriend? I don't even think people say that anymore, right? But the point is those kinds of relationships, you know how people always say, Oh, the Quran doesn't talk about those kind of relationships, actually does. And this is not just this. While I'm telling you that he then is the verse it's also called out again, in Surah. Talmud, I think it's like verse five or eight or something like that. It's called out again, the exact same wording. The point is, a lot clearly says why law don't even do this kind of stuff. Okay, unlawful relations, ie those kinds of relationships that you have pre marriage. And number two are those that you take a secret lovers. So now you're in

00:28:17--> 00:29:04

a marriage, but person is being unfaithful? So, what am What does he that he then for either or sin for entertainer before he shed tears finally hidden? Yes, former Island personality meaning either. So Allah continues, and he says, after they have been part of the family, they should commit this crime, right? So if they one of them actually fall into Fantasia, and in this case here, in this context, it's referring to just one type of fracture the most extreme of them, which is in or adultery itself, then they will be penalized with half of what is a punishment for a decent family woman. So whatever it was, at that time, they will get half of that. Now. This is a this is a

00:29:04--> 00:29:52

massive topic of what exactly the punishment was for somebody unfaithful back then. And when we say half of it, some of the illuma interpreted like what I read through this a while ago, there were literally pages after pages describing what is new useful in this area. What is half of the punishment in this is the physical thing. Some of the trilemma Imam Malik Rahim Allah said useful here means you take back half of the mouth. That's what this one here socket well. Other said no, no, this one here meant action, actual punishment and even what that punishment should have been whether it's separation for some time, or something else. point is it was some kind of punishment.

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

Okay, half of what that was. So my point is, is this this nice phone here, this half that's being talked about? It's very great.

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

No one really knows what that is. And even amount of code to be goes into, you know, several, several massage. I think about nine of them.

00:30:11--> 00:30:28

Yeah, he goes into nine of them just on describing what this and what all the tabs are when in different orlimar have mentioned. So the point is there is some consequence okay. There is some consequence for this, and it works on both ends, meaning either what's either by the way

00:30:32--> 00:30:33

punishment

00:30:35--> 00:30:37

Well, remember remember that word

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

a lot up.

00:30:42--> 00:30:43

Remember that word?

00:30:44--> 00:30:46

The early kelemen hace el anitta minco.

00:30:48--> 00:30:50

The early kelemen hashy olana terminfo.

00:30:53--> 00:31:01

Those women are to be pursued by those who fear a great harm coming your way. Hmm.

00:31:04--> 00:31:06

Okay, so what's happening here?

00:31:07--> 00:31:12

It's it's in masculine form Delica. But why is it saying those women

00:31:15--> 00:31:30

but first of all, let's just understand what's happened in this a, you know, that he came in how she learned swimming pool. What's happened in this a. So we have met, and given the compensation of the intern shameless, kameda fair, then they have been penalized.

00:31:31--> 00:31:47

With half the punch of this van which we just talked about, those women have to be pursued by those fear coming, a big harm that is coming your way is a Lynette, meaning option B only be pursued, when you are really afraid of falling into major fitness. Otherwise, you should go for a decent woman.

00:31:48--> 00:31:53

So what's this all about? This is one of those subjects again,

00:31:54--> 00:32:20

we have to be able to talk about it and understand what the message is behind this. So what's happened here? Those women are to be pursued by those who fear a great harm coming your way. What kind of women? And so good question, right. So that he can hear is always used for masculine should be used for men here in this case, right? cludes that a lot. So a girl says.

00:32:22--> 00:32:41

And if you can hold back and be patient for the right spouse, then that is always better for you and allies, extremely Mercia merciful and forgiving. Anybody who is looking for marriage, and it's been rough, you probably might want to clip out the conclusion of that a bad habit on your phone, like a screensaver or something.

00:32:42--> 00:32:47

Because, you know, we were all there once upon a time. So

00:32:49--> 00:33:38

this here in context, however, is again, if you think about how the sahabas were, how all of these companions lived, they didn't just settle or they're encouraged here not just to settle for anyone and somebody is available or what have you know, really, you know, treat yourself with some honor, dignity, and look for what you what you feel you deserve. And if you can hold on and continue to be patient, there is tremendous, tremendous amount of reward for that. And patience here is not just holding up for marriage, but also keeping yourself patient with all the things that are difficult for you that make you want to seek marriage, somehow finding a way to to keep yourself strong during

00:33:38--> 00:34:07

all of that, and this is something Allah says it's better for you now hydro lakum in Quran always equals reward when Allah says something is better for you IE Allah will reward you so hydro lakum only Allah will reward you for that extra patience in this case. And Allah is will la fudo Rahim Allah is exceptionally Forgiving and Merciful. Very quick question and then we go on. Why does a love conclude this a with mercy and forgiveness?

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

Go ahead.

00:34:12--> 00:34:16

doors are always open. Okay, go ahead in context, really?

00:34:25--> 00:34:26

Sure. Okay.

00:34:38--> 00:34:38

Okay.

00:34:40--> 00:34:41

It's really beautiful.

00:34:43--> 00:35:00

For me, when I look at this, it really keeps me calm and under control, allows exceptionally mercy and forgiving. So if you make mistakes, when you're single, and you make those mistakes, like you really try to hold on to patience, but man life is tough. Sometimes.

00:35:01--> 00:35:36

Allah is saying, Hey, listen, as long as you keep coming back to me and you stick with me, I'll keep forgiving you don't you worry to God to keep pushing yourself. And I'm exceptionally Merciful. Part of mercy an extension of mercy is Baraka. So when Allah says that he's merciful, meaning he'll also extend his blessing and Baraka meaning if you convince yourself and talk to yourself that maybe you know, it's been years and I still can't find somebody, maybe there's no one out there for me, unless that he's merciful, or there is someone out there for you. But I need you to stay keep yourself together and be patient. It'll happen.

00:35:37--> 00:35:44

It's kind of like hope scenario of hope at the end, hold on. So that's really important.

00:35:52--> 00:35:55

It requires a lot of mercy and for us

00:35:56--> 00:36:06

to continue with that relationship. So these words are kind of like a reminder of how we should be good good.

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

These are the two most important things yeah, mercy

00:36:11--> 00:36:21

and forgiveness Very good. Very good. You've said that as though you you you've got the experience, you know what this is all about Mashallah Tabata Allah.

00:36:23--> 00:36:24

Allah.

00:36:26--> 00:36:31

Allah Bina come when Allah talks about marriage which Allah Bina come what my word debt and what came after

00:36:33--> 00:37:20

two secret ingredients for successful relationship. Okay, so recognize still there. Moving on. Verse number 26. Allah continues. So this is part three of the sutra universal guidelines are now going to be talked about from now until approximately 39. Maybe a bit more. Okay. Illa continues and says you read law holy you obey in Allah Kumbaya, do come sooner lesbian ml publikum. Allah wants to make clear to you and guide you to the good practices of those before you and accept your repentance. Didn't he already tell us that He forgives us? We're to barley qumola Holleyman Hakeem. He just told us that. Now we're told when you change your life, we already spoke about what Toba is. tabea, tubal

00:37:20--> 00:37:56

physical change. So now to add to forgiveness. Allah is saying, in addition to that, as part of you seeking forgiveness, you physically change something in your life, you've adapted yourself for a better life that is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala than in this case, hey, I'm watching that too. And at the end of the day, to all of us universal guidance to all of us. So by the way, this is one of those verses, like if you're keeping track of verses that can speak to you 24 hours a day, these are these are some of them. So verse 26, in the sutra, is the kind of verse that literally is applicable to everything.

00:37:58--> 00:38:22

And those are the kind of verses you don't want to forget. Allah wants to make clear to UT Tila this is actually something he desired for you doesn't want to punish you doesn't want to mess your life up. Why is Allah Why did he allow this to happen? Why did he allow that to happen? Why is my life going this way? going that way? actually wants to make very clear to you. So this is like parents saying ticket to their kids? No, no, no. Let me make one thing clear to you, son.

00:38:24--> 00:38:30

Allahu RE DO. Li obey him a locum he wants to make very clear to beggin Bay in a

00:38:31--> 00:39:01

way. Yeah, do come. And he also, you know, it's one thing when you say to somebody, hey, look, I just want to tell you straight up and clear. This is what I said, This is what I want. This is what my intentions are. Okay? So I don't want to go by a lot. No way I do. And I'm also going to put you on that path. So you get they're not going to just give you instructions and walk away. I'm going to give you the instructions, and you're going to get guidance. You know what I love about this, the prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam told us

00:39:04--> 00:39:21

either or other Lucia he level s verb. You know, whenever Allah so Joel wants something he always puts together the reasons to facilitate that thing to happen. So for example, if Allah has prescribed for you that one day you are going to

00:39:23--> 00:39:31

you are going to study this Deen and you are going to study this Deen at a very intense level, you are going to be part of some kind of intensive long term program.

00:39:32--> 00:39:43

When profit analysis talks about this, he's saying to you that the way Allah preps you for that is you don't just wake up and you're like, Oh, my God, registration is happening.

00:39:44--> 00:39:45

And there I am in

00:39:46--> 00:40:00

a couple of years prior to that. You start attending a few classes and your thirst grows. Then from the classes and you're walking out here, you're already thinking about god there's this one thing in my

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

I really gotta change that I'm going to change that you change this the one thing, that one thing like to to before, you know, if you like, you know, I don't know how to read your end, let me just open the horn figure this out. Oh my god, I know how to read Sorrento Fatiha properly. Let me see how pseudo Bukhara sounds, then you finish that, one if I can memorize this. And then all of this stuff ends up leading up to the point where the right program is in front of you, you just decide you know what, let me just go and apply, you get in. And there you are. Allah just facilitated all the reasons to make that happen. So now when it comes to marriage, when it comes to marriage, every

00:40:38--> 00:41:12

single one of us whether you're married or not, has a story like that. You can give examples of that, that if you have a sincere desire and intention to want to marry for all the good reasons. All of a sudden, at some point, you will find yourself talking about marriage more. You will not just be talking about people that are close to you, you'll actually go to like Imams and counselors and chefs and people outside of your circle. Hey, listen, man, if you ever meet somebody or you know somebody, I don't want to sound desperate, but I kind of am but just keep that to yourself.

00:41:14--> 00:41:48

You know, you can word that how you like you start coming out, you come out of that shell. I'm not talking about you change your Facebook status and available or some No, I'm talking about like, the hue slowly crack that shell. And you start an OLED just puts you around the right people. And it's not even just to help you, Mary, you start talking to mothers, and they start giving you the right advice. Hey, listen, I've been married 30 years, this is my advice to you. Then you start hearing from brother, then all of a sudden you go to a hotbed and just so happens that hold by is all about finding the right spouse.

00:41:49--> 00:42:01

He's like, Oh my God, that's either a rather low a higher level as spam Allah azza wa jal will just facilitate his make things happen. So how did all of this start?

00:42:03--> 00:42:13

Two things will always be vanilla hytera, Allah guaranteed, guarantee you the guidance that you deserve, not the guidance that we necessarily want you agree.

00:42:15--> 00:42:16

The guidance that we deserve two things,

00:42:18--> 00:43:01

a sincere intention, and a good heart. You have these two things alone will facilitate the outcome of whatever you're trying to pursue, or whatever you're trying to figure, you'll just know what to do. It's amazing. So part of that is highlighted here. If you notice something about a a 26 It's so generic, it's not specifying anything below once to make life everything clear for you and he wants to guide you to good practices, where you do come soon. What's sunon plural for sooner? Just want you to do the right things make the right choices. Sooner Latina men publikum especially like those who came before you.

00:43:02--> 00:43:06

There are definitely great people that came before us in this oma haven't there.

00:43:07--> 00:43:09

And I'm not talking about just sahabas

00:43:11--> 00:43:18

this probably your parents and people close to you that really inspired you to be the Muslim you are today.

00:43:19--> 00:43:57

And you know they have moved on or passed on or what have you. You know, whenever I look at this verse, I can never forget my Hadeeth teacher. You know, I hope and I pray that in sha Allah, Allah, Allah allows me to meet him someday. He was from Nigeria, but he was a PhD student at the University of Medina. And he was doing his thesis he was in the Ph. D. program. And one day I saw him and I heard about this guy, everybody, Dr. Abu Bakar. from Nigeria, in case you're watching, okay, so you just never you never know. Right? Dr. Abu Bakar from Nigeria's most liked Khan, okay, whatever, right?

00:43:58--> 00:44:20

And I went up to him and I said, Listen, man, I heard that you teach had teeth and I want to read a Hadeeth book to you. I want to read it to you. He said to me, he's like, nope. So go home. I'm too busy. I went back to him again. And I said, Listen, I really want to read this book to you. This is the most popular book, especially in the West, I need to read this to you is like, Well, lucky, I'm lazy. I'm sorry. I can't.

00:44:21--> 00:44:28

And then I was like, What am I gonna say now? And I said, she I don't care if you're lazy. Please give this to me. It happened about

00:44:29--> 00:44:31

30 times.

00:44:32--> 00:44:59

And then never stopped. And then around that time, he said, Okay, come to my house, got to his house. I sat down. And then he said, You know why? I said no to you so so so many times I go, I did it all on purpose. You know why I did that? And I said you wanted to see how much how bad I wanted. This is like yeah, you said the book you asked for is going to take at least minimum three years to finish. So I've said I'm ready hamdullah we finished it in two. And then when we finish this book in two

00:45:00--> 00:45:38

I said to him, Chef, you know, I'm about to leave, go back to Ken excetera. How can we keep in contact? He's like, here's my number. But I don't know if I'll go back to Nigeria. I have to figure this out with my family. So I said, Sure. How will we ever meet each other again, in sha Allah, Allah call Yokoyama, we'll meet on the Day of Judgment. And I was just like, this guy was like, he was a student, and he was like my, like a real hero and inspiration to me. And that was it. I kid you not. When I went to Omar a few weeks ago, I went looking for him. And no one knows where he is. I don't know if he's alive or what. But he gave me the greatest gift of my life. He taught me

00:45:38--> 00:46:02

Hadeeth book I had never read before my life, body from cover to cover. And it's just like, you gave me something that perhaps I can carry with me on the Day of Judgment, and may actually help me be where I want to be. And it's thanks to you. And I can never be able to express that or say that to him. So when you look at verses like this, you try to find where your inspiration comes from.

00:46:03--> 00:46:36

And then the part of that will fit into this massive subject of sunon. So Allah says that he will give you the ability to do the right practices of those who came before you and accept your repentance because you're going to mess up on this journey. And Allah is all knowing and always will law who I lean on hacking. So this as you see at the bottom of page 31, answers the question, What does Allah want from us? He wants you to be qualified for Tilda. That's just like in Ramadan.

00:46:37--> 00:47:23

Why do we have Ramadan? What's the last concluding verse when you talk about Ramadan and Switzer bacara what either Celica Abadi only whenever you ask whenever they ask you about me whenever they ask you a prophet Allah, so it was about Allah for iniquity. boogy Buddha Allah today, I'm close to them. And I answer the call of the call who caller who calls them to me? This is all about what's word, Dora that comes at the end of all the conversation of Ramadan. So in essence, why do we go through Ramadan? Because we become qualified? We become qualified now, to make dua to Allah azza wa jal? Isn't that what all of Ramadan is? isn't what we do every day. Isn't that when you're in the

00:47:23--> 00:47:33

state of fasting, all your doors are accepted? Isn't that what the Imams then who lead us in total, we cry every single night doing? Just making Dora and we come for that too.

00:47:34--> 00:48:12

So the whole month is built around this one thing. And so the conclusion is that okay, now you can talk to me, ask me for what you want. And I'm right here and I'm going to take it from you. It's amazing. So a lot takes pride in clarifying and teaching us 27 love continues, well Lahu, up to a year to barley Kuma URI to lead the diet of your own a sherawat and tomato mainland, our Thema Allah does not wish to turn to Allah does not wish will love who you read on your toolbar to turn to you. But the wish of those who follow their lusts is that you should turn away from him far, far away. Wow.

00:48:13--> 00:48:14

So

00:48:15--> 00:48:30

Allah is not sitting there looking for somebody to fall into this so that he can so that he can accept their Toba or be there for their repentance, you understand this message. He's not waiting for you to mess up.

00:48:31--> 00:49:10

Because that in and of itself, fundamentally wouldn't be correct. to assume that alleges once he's waiting, there's like a mess up. But I can just turn to Him always know, Allah actually wants you to limit the amount of mistakes you make, and the bad choices you make as much as possible, actually wants that kind of life for you. You know, this is this is what I like to call psychology and Quran. You know, psychologists look at these things, when they talk to you about being positive and self confidence, self worth and coaching yourself to be an overall better, more confident, positive, optimistic person, blah, blah, blah, blah. These are some of those highlights in court and that

00:49:10--> 00:49:22

alleges not wish to turn to you but the wish of those who follow their lusts and desires is that you should turn away from him. So he wants you to pay attention to her. Not the fact that you can always go back to him when you fall into the sin.

00:49:23--> 00:49:26

But who you're displeasing when you fall into that?

00:49:27--> 00:49:31

Is that is really the crux here who you disobeyed

00:49:32--> 00:49:39

because after this disobedience, there's no guarantee that you'll have the strength to turn back to him. Does that make sense?

00:49:40--> 00:49:50

There's a lot of people who fall into mistakes after mistakes, but don't make Toba probably don't even know how to make Toba or they say inshallah, one day I'll make Toba.

00:49:51--> 00:49:53

So this is what Ally's highlighting here.

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

Verse 28, URI to Lahore and you have the foreign Kumu hula

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

insan aldar etha Allah does not wish a lot does wish to lighten your load

00:50:06--> 00:50:10

your difficulties, you read a lot and you have a foreign income.

00:50:11--> 00:50:33

But mankind is still created weak. So, in other words, no matter how much we are told, or how many laws we are given, for some people, God has so many rules to Allah, I'm actually made it easier for you. But because you are a weak creation, in and of itself,

00:50:34--> 00:50:46

you're still gonna complain about this. Shed era has come to make life easier. Since we're around the corner of Ramadan. Do you know how people used to fast before Ramadan was prescribed?

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

Some of the stories are really Oh my god.

00:50:51--> 00:51:02

Like if you fell asleep, mmm. And know your chemo line is much more mentions like a whole set of different scenarios. If you fell asleep, while you were fasting, you are exempted from a thought

00:51:03--> 00:51:05

and just got to keep going until circled.

00:51:06--> 00:51:11

That's that's really bad news for like 99% of the room. Right.

00:51:13--> 00:51:14

Just think about it.

00:51:20--> 00:51:37

Yeah, so the up the when you take that a step further, if you fell asleep after your thought, one one story that one situation that amendment no we've mentioned is that if if you fell, fell asleep through the F bar, which is also very common.

00:51:38--> 00:51:41

You too bad, you can't have a thought keep going until sort of

00:51:42--> 00:51:54

it's it's unbelievable. All of those rules were changed. Right? And I'm sure for a lot of Muslims out there. Thank God. All right. So you need to level and you have found

00:51:55--> 00:52:48

this area, I would like to encourage you to note that this is a hard and difficult verse to see if that makes sense to spiritually See, it's easy to read it when you're in tough times. This is not an A you can read very clearly. When you're going through disappointment after disappointment. This is not an easy to read. When every little thing that is difficult for you is so easy for others, like people come regularly to the masjid for Salah. But you can barely make it for one prayer a month and you're like God, how do these people do it? This is a hard a to read. So this is very personal to each and every Muslim. They they internalize the lesson in this verse, very different. So this is

00:52:48--> 00:53:13

why we need this verse. We need this verse to be straight up and really clear. A lot doesn't want any hardship for you. It's worded differently. And so it's a hedge. Right? So it's a hedge, Allah tells you Well, my geral Allahu la confit. Dini, Min, how much? He says to you, I never put for you in this Deen, any kind of hardship. It's word, it's slightly different. So this reminder had to come back again.

00:53:14--> 00:53:26

Point is, is that at the end of the day following a laws law is an expiation of smaller scenes, it gets smaller out of the way so that you can have fewer burdens to carry on the Day of Judgment.

00:53:28--> 00:53:31

That is amendment to be rahimullah

00:53:32--> 00:53:33

some of his words as well.

00:53:34--> 00:53:40

You know, when I looked at that, and I read a, you know, a bigger version of it here.

00:53:41--> 00:53:51

The first thing that caught my eye is you will have fewer burdens to carry on yomo piano Yeah, that's right. I all of us will have burdens and we're going to be carrying on young

00:53:52--> 00:53:53

Oh my god.

00:53:54--> 00:54:05

This is just one way to say no matter what and how much you do, there's going to be some stuff you'll have to stand up in front of Allah and say why why that happened? Why you did that. So May Allah make it easy for us, right.

00:54:06--> 00:54:16

continues. Yeah, Yola, Xena, Amendola, kulu. And whaler convenor combi battle people have, amen. So these are economic laws that you see.

00:54:17--> 00:54:25

Eat not up of your up your property amongst yourself in vanities. So what is this area? talking about?

00:54:26--> 00:55:00

Take a look at the paragraph you see at the bottom of page 33. The monitor scan and economic setup is using too much legal jargon so as to confound the reader and protect themselves. In other words, fine print in like everything. The fine print stuff. It's so ironic. As I was driving here, I was talking to a brother who just finished his taxes. He's been doing his taxes for like the last 20 years. He said this year he tried somebody else. He went to a different account. He felt like an accountant. He felt like he'd never did his taxes his whole life because he just learned all these

00:55:00--> 00:55:18

Different clauses and rules about different accounts and etc. He was just telling me He's like, I just can't believe I didn't know this stuff. But apparently, it was always in the fine writing. So he signed up for an introduction to taxes. In September, this is taken, of course, this is like I'm done. So the point is, is that this,

00:55:19--> 00:55:28

that kind of contract, that kind of business transaction, our Prophet alayhi salatu, was salam, for bit forbade this kind of transaction.

00:55:30--> 00:55:56

The kind of transaction that had hoorah. Like it was it was ambiguous, it wasn't clear it wasn't right. When am I going to get my car? Okay, so you're going to put a full tank of gas? Or do I have to do that? Okay, when I got it, it was a half tank. So I mean, how do I how do I know? I'm going to go winter tires? Are they going to be used? or What do you mean, it's going to be used just once? Like, how many color all of that ambiguous stuff? Shut er, doesn't allow none of that.

00:55:57--> 00:56:17

It's, it's gotta be crystal clear that any kind of business dealings is 100% clear, you know, what you're purchasing and you know what you get? As a matter of fact, I'll come to you more in a minute. As a matter of fact, you know, when we go to restaurants or you know, some restaurants before you order you pay,

00:56:18--> 00:56:21

or then you get like a tag or something. Shout out unwise, unacceptable.

00:56:23--> 00:56:25

100% unacceptable. You know, why?

00:56:27--> 00:56:52

You paid for something and you don't know what you're what you're gonna get. You probably like order a fish and it's missing an eyeball. And you're like, What's going on here? A mutated fish and why is it just missing that one eyeball? What happened? Where'd you pick this up from? It's got a funny taste when I bite into it doesn't taste right. I asked for you know, just a little bit of pepper and you put something else like a different spice. I'm getting an allergic reaction to it now.

00:56:53--> 00:56:55

That's why Sherry I so just

00:56:56--> 00:57:35

don't pay for nothing. So actually, when it comes to food, you pay at the end when you're when you're full. Then you say Okay, I'm ready. Because that way you can say hey, I didn't get really what I wanted. And again, from the the business you know, side is that they will have to make those changes. I'm sorry, we messed up your order, here's what we can do, we can give you back this we can make you this we can add this give you a coupon, etc. point is you walk out there and you are 100% satisfied. I mean, all the other things that come in between of you know, customers and things like that, that are intolerant and looking to cheat the system separate issue. We're just talking general

00:57:35--> 00:57:53

rules here. By the way, these rules now in Medina are introduced for the first time. Okay. So this surah is number 29. This is brand new. So you know what, you know why I say that anybody here visit like Saudi recently anybody here gone for a moto hydro anything.

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

ever tried buying anything?

00:57:59--> 00:58:11

And see what you have to do? You have to bargain and get the right price? And they'll be like, well, nah, he will lie in a lie. This is the lie price. I'll give you a law he probably soon as it says right. And he's like, wow.

00:58:12--> 00:58:42

And then you could do something real simple, you know, and they're like you go anywhere in Mecca, you'll never find this price. So that kind of attitude and approach to business. It still exists today. And this is what Ally's highlighting in this a don't if you have an ounce of human Did you see how this started? Galeana ama No, not the I you wouldn't ask. You have an answer. ounce of Amen. Don't eat these kinds of transactions that Allah says it's vanity belt will Bill belta it's also invalid.

00:58:44--> 00:58:48

A login Illa enter Khulna teacher or tena Antara, the main con,

00:58:50--> 00:58:59

except that this is going to have to be the kind of business or traffic that you trade. That is mutual teach, taught all the men come

00:59:00--> 00:59:03

back. I have it up here. Todd, look at the bottom there.

00:59:05--> 00:59:35

Both parties are pleased. That's a lot of instruction. Whenever you do business, both parties are pleased at the end of the day. So what is the wisdom behind this clarity? So all of these new laws, the wisdom behind it, we've already mentioned which is there were always bad practices when it came to business. So it's being it's being sifted out now. I feel like these kind of verses need to be revealed all over again.

00:59:36--> 00:59:39

Right in the world that we live in, so

00:59:41--> 00:59:51

but I'll even go fine print is usually mostly translated but Islam forbade this practice. This is the word it's used to hit off. All details must be clear and apparent as a prophet alayhi salatu was Salam told us led by Ron

00:59:52--> 00:59:57

philidor. So there is no transaction in that type of deal.

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

Okay, let's move on. A lot continues and he says

01:00:05--> 01:00:08

until to Antara wala Taku and full circle

01:00:10--> 01:00:16

Let's finish up this a while I talk to law enforcer calm in the law can be qumola Hema

01:00:19--> 01:00:24

nor kill or destroy yourself for Verily Allah has been sent to you to be the most merciful

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

hmm that's a pretty strong command there that talk to you one full circle then unless set at the bottom there

01:00:35--> 01:00:39

then don't kill or destroy yourselves what's a law referring to here

01:00:40--> 01:00:42

same context same subject

01:00:44--> 01:00:47

when you do transactions like this

01:00:49--> 01:00:54

you essentially burn out what how the A started young Latina Eminem starts disappearing

01:00:57--> 01:00:57

you're killing it.

01:00:58--> 01:01:02

It's not a physical This is not you know, literal.

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

tough to do here you're destroying yourself and full circle yourself with from within. So in other words,

01:01:10--> 01:01:23

you you do an a dishonest transaction, you add a couple extra dollars here and there. And those extra dollars mean nothing. It's just like just 10 bucks. I just I got 10 bucks, so it's no big deal.

01:01:24--> 01:01:36

That's what ends up happening. You become totally insensitive to doing the wrong thing. You know what I love here? Have you ever heard like on the news sometimes where the Muslim found $10,000 in the cab, and they returned it?

01:01:37--> 01:01:39

And it's on headline news.

01:01:40--> 01:01:44

For us. It's a number 29 not a number one.

01:01:46--> 01:01:54

It was oh, that's that's what people have to do. When it's not ours, we return. It's just like, oh my god. So how do you feel returning it?

01:01:55--> 01:01:58

Felt normal? Not mine.

01:01:59--> 01:02:07

What do you What else do you want me to say? It wasn't mine. But that's the world we live in. right it's it's impossible to sift this stuff out.

01:02:08--> 01:02:15

Honest straightforward, legit transactions. By the way, which Prophet came to stop this?

01:02:16--> 01:02:28

Show I barely Islam. He was the Prophet all about transactions. So he came and introduced all of this. And that's where this whole revolution in the world began. All right. Okay.

01:02:29--> 01:02:36

Well, in the lava canopy Kumara Hema, okay, verse number 13. Allah continues and he says, well, Allahu

01:02:37--> 01:03:06

wa Mejia further Li Kuroda, wanhao wallula. For self and or sleeping out on what can an early Corolla he yesira so Allah continues and he says, any do that in resentfulness cross limits that Allah has set and injustice soon Shall we cast them into the fire and it easy for Allah? Don't assume you can play with Allah's mercy while cheating and manipulating people.

01:03:08--> 01:03:23

Pretty straightforward. Don't think you can fool a lot. You know on the one hand, you're doing that kind of business. And then you come from all you're crying out it'll be alright. Give me Give me your appeal. Okay, I'm not paying you back. Okay, continues.

01:03:24--> 01:03:32

integer tenable cabeza. You're mad toon? Hell no, no, no. Catherine consejo de comando telecom mode Harlan cherryman.

01:03:34--> 01:03:36

The few all protect

01:03:37--> 01:03:42

from the things which you are forbidden to do.

01:03:43--> 01:03:46

The word here use is ht NAB.

01:03:48--> 01:04:11

ht NAB. We heard we hear the same word used before to protect Allah uses it in another soda. I'm sure all of you are familiar with soda tell hoogenraad Yeah, you will Athena m en la touch attainable. Excuse me ah tenable Cathy Amina one less says people have even aged 20 boo. protect yourselves from assumption.

01:04:12--> 01:04:29

Now here's the thing. The word that's used here is edge to edge attenti blue edge tenable edge Tina the edge to edge tenant. It actually comes from the word gem button. Jumbo literally means the person beside you.

01:04:30--> 01:04:31

And agenda.

01:04:32--> 01:04:59

So I'm sitting like on the bus or whatever. And I'm sitting beside my brother, we're next to each other. So when Allah says here to protect, if you all protect yourselves from the things which you are forbidden to do, what is he really saying? What's the hidden psychology behind this practice? Do you just do it when you feel like you're around the wrong stuff? Or is it a mindset and attitude that has to stick with you 24 hours a day

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

All the time.

01:05:02--> 01:05:02

The latter, right?

01:05:04--> 01:05:50

Because why the word ht never. So you have to act, even if you're not, as though sin is always right next to you, Tom is always there. So you're always cautious of everything you say and everything you do, even when you're talking to fellow Muslims in the most sacred blessed place, because sin still finds its way in here, too, doesn't it? So this area needs to be talked about and reminded to us even when we're in the most blessed places, because why people still do the wrong things in places like this, this is makes sense now. So this area is all about a psyche or attitude that you are constantly in the frame of mind of spiritual protection, always protecting you and making sure that

01:05:50--> 01:06:34

you're doing the right thing. Like in touch Teddy will care about your mental health, Helena. Now in this area, it mentioned kabaya. So it's singled out the major sins. So the message in this area, protection from the major sins, the major sins will by default, extinguish the minor ones. Now the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam described something now, I'm going to talk to you a little bit about major and minor rhyme, process sentences, the five daily prayers jumari to tomorrow, Ramadan, Ramadan x is expats since in between, if one protects themselves from the major stuff, so it's an expiation. As long as you get out of the major sense. The billion dollar question is, what is a

01:06:34--> 01:06:35

major sin?

01:06:36--> 01:06:40

Does anybody have any thought on this? Mark? Go ahead. What's a major sin?

01:06:44--> 01:06:48

So those are all examples, which you're right, by the way. There are lots so

01:06:52--> 01:06:54

so, so you're saying there's only five?

01:06:57--> 01:07:05

Okay, and from these five? Do we have other matrices as well? Or? So we have the top five, which we'll see in a moment, right?

01:07:07--> 01:07:09

But by definition, what is the major sin?

01:07:10--> 01:07:11

Take a look.

01:07:14--> 01:07:26

Take a look. Scholars differ on what exactly is a major sin, ignore best says what are the alohar inhuman sins that Allah concluded with a specific punishment or resulted in his anger or curse?

01:07:27--> 01:07:42

Whatever that is, right, all of those things. How do we know that through Hadith or yet that conclude themselves this way? Even in misurata, on the other hand, well, the low Han said, what Allah has forbidden in this surah two verse 33.

01:07:43--> 01:08:24

his exact words from the beginning to verse 33, whatever Allah has asked whatever are less commanded you to do, or not to do, basically fulfilling those commands. Why? Because scholars say that this sort encompasses scenes that are constantly mentioned in the horror and backbiting corruptions in a murder show because well, this particular statement that scholars say this is a general definition of what major sin is as well. sins that are constantly mentioned throughout the Quran and the Sunnah period. So they're not just talked about once in a while you have many Heidi's about backbiting in a murder everything corruption fest sad, that sort of thing. But

01:08:33--> 01:08:33

yes,

01:08:36--> 01:08:40

yes, yes. Given our best as opinion as well as even

01:08:41--> 01:08:42

even Mr. rude.

01:08:46--> 01:08:52

So, so with respect to being ungrateful, and losing gratitude in Allah,

01:08:53--> 01:08:54

we're at verse 31, right?

01:08:56--> 01:09:12

What was the verses that we just looked at? Allah wishes to lighten your load people a fee man Make sure your transactions are clear a lot once you realize Look, a lot wants to make clear to you and guide you aren't those things that we should be what

01:09:14--> 01:09:18

should really like be happy above really Allah you want that for me?

01:09:19--> 01:09:29

She'd be so grateful to you because the fact that I can recognize you want this for me is in and of itself something to be grateful for. Does that make sense?

01:09:31--> 01:09:36

Hey, Allah Salahi Allah Farah, how many people respond to it? Not everyone.

01:09:37--> 01:09:42

So what what economists rude is saying here is that

01:09:44--> 01:09:59

what has been talked about in the introduction of the sorta till around 33 pretty much encompasses pretty much encompasses most if not in accordance to him. All of the major

01:10:00--> 01:10:32

issues and problems in culture and society, which potentially could build a strong arm. If you follow through and protect yourself and follow these guidelines, the rest of the Quran will make complete sense to you. This is why some of the lmm made suit attendee sir they've commented on the suta if this was the only lengthy surah so we had we did not have Bukhara out off earlier in Milan, and like all of these other soldiers that are pretty long, and this was the only one

01:10:33--> 01:10:55

it would have been sufficient. Sooner denisa to be the longest chapter of the Quran, and then we have everything else. It's incredible. So we're gonna see more clarity and truth to economists rude statement why he why he says this. Okay, Mm hmm. Rahim Allah once said, all the believers will be in paradise.

01:10:56--> 01:11:03

And he was asked how he recited this verse, verse 31. he recited this word in Ted touched any bookable

01:11:04--> 01:11:52

meaning and then he says, will you delete window to see locomote Holland Kadima. So, look at how verse 31 ends, and Allah will admit you to a gate of great honor. The the gate of great honor. Mmm I've met and the majority of warfare soon, they say that that is a gate of gender, not gender itself, but any gate that takes you into gender is considered to be a gate of honor. Right? So he says, gentlemen, and then he quotes the prophets I send them said, My intercession is reserved for those who have committed the major sins. So if Allah will forgive everything else, and the major sin is reserved for the prophets intercession than what is left for you and I,

01:11:53--> 01:11:56

you see how this works. So you get complete

01:11:58--> 01:12:01

forgiveness from Allah azza wa jal. It's amazing.

01:12:02--> 01:12:35

So mahalo. And Carrie Mahir Jenna. So even though Mr. Luke continues, five verses in sudah, Nisa are more beloved to me than the entire world and everything in it. Those are the numbers. Now the ones that are in yellow, look at what ignore best, what are the alojado says, There are eight verses in Sudan and they said that are better than anything the sun has risen upon in this world. Now the yellow is consistent with the previous episode as a white are the additions or the differences between the two.

01:12:37--> 01:12:57

It is statements like, like these is why I really wanted to go through the surah with you. So we can discover some of these treasures. You know, the whole core n is a treasure. But there are some soldiers that the treasure just shine its brilliance is just a bit more than others.

01:12:58--> 01:13:01

And so it looks like this surah is one of them.

01:13:03--> 01:13:06

For them to say that is incredibly powerful.

01:13:07--> 01:13:39

And look, look at the numbers. They're not even in order all of them 2627 then he jumps to three within 4841 10 what that you're so specific, which means that these two companions are the alohar, in whom they know this sutra, extremely well, for them to single out these verses. And by the way, this is personal. This is not a principle of you know, for all of us, but this was something that they themselves saw. Wow. This is what it meant to them. Yep.

01:13:44--> 01:13:46

major sins on his Facebook page.

01:13:47--> 01:13:48

Number one,

01:13:49--> 01:13:52

and number three was murder. And number two was disobedience to parents.

01:13:54--> 01:13:54

I was like,

01:13:56--> 01:13:56

it was quite

01:13:59--> 01:14:04

Yeah. So yeah, number one was choke. Number two was

01:14:05--> 01:14:06

disobedience to parents.

01:14:09--> 01:14:11

Yeah. So disobedience to parents

01:14:12--> 01:14:14

and murder.

01:14:15--> 01:14:16

Are they related?

01:14:20--> 01:14:29

One is a spiritual death and one is physical. If you're disobedient to your parents wrongfully.

01:14:30--> 01:14:37

It's it's like spiritual murder to the two most important individuals on Earth.

01:14:40--> 01:14:51

So actually, verse number 35, year 36 is going to be that verse that you're talking about. That same guitar we have so we're gonna see that okay.

01:14:53--> 01:14:55

So we have about a minute left.

01:14:58--> 01:14:59

Let's Let's finish this

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

And then I'll promise I'll go back to this if you need to write anything down. Let me just Okay, I see a lot of you writing and I'm enjoying that so I'll just wait

01:15:12--> 01:15:13

yeah, that minute is gonna go

01:15:19--> 01:15:19

Are we good?

01:15:21--> 01:15:40

Okay, the revolution begins. Look, look, look at verse number 32 elegantes Wella Turman no malfatti Allah will be he Baldo camarilla about religion le na Siebel Mim Mim mechta Sabu willingly sir you know Siebel mimic Tessa was a law firm in fugly

01:15:41--> 01:15:44

in the law, how can they be Cooley Shea in our Lima.

01:15:45--> 01:15:53

This is one reason that the LMS tell us why suit attorneys are God's name. It's from this verse.

01:15:54--> 01:16:04

So do not crave what Allah has given some of you over others. So this is an area of what? Look at the bottom jealousy

01:16:06--> 01:16:14

letter to men now 10 Nia, to wish. So just wishing you're not even saying God, I just want that.

01:16:15--> 01:16:16

Man, I wish I had that.

01:16:18--> 01:16:27

Whatever, they got it, don't even do that. Don't even say it. So this is a call to not even have wishful thinking

01:16:29--> 01:16:30

in the form of jealousy.

01:16:31--> 01:16:47

So Allah says, Don't even look with the word that all the time and now is often translated as, because that's what a wish. If you if you hang on to it eventually turns into God, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish I could have this I wish I could do this, I wish I could achieve this, etc.

01:16:48--> 01:17:06

Then Allah says, For now, in context, though, the wishful thinking that's being talked about here is to do with inheritance. So men are going to get what they deserve what they are, and women are now going to have what they earn. So that any side gets its name here. Well in Nisa, in asleep

01:17:08--> 01:17:39

this sentence and two women what they earn never existed before in the entire room. Now what's going to happen? All of this is over all of these awful practices of women and children and you know the examples that we shared with you of how and what they had to go through to get just the little maybe if they know they had to sit on a horse and spear with an enemy and have to survive all all of that craziness done. They're gonna have it now. But as a lot of is bounty

01:17:41--> 01:17:45

What's that all about? And ask Allah was Allah him in fugly?

01:17:48--> 01:17:53

Don't feel jealous and ask from Allah. Okay. But in context here, yeah.

01:18:03--> 01:18:04

What you're doing is you're

01:18:14--> 01:18:15

actually handcrafted.

01:18:25--> 01:18:26

Good.

01:18:27--> 01:19:15

Good. Anything else? Excellent. Anything else? Anybody want to share? Ask a love is bounty. Now in context, there are still a possibility that inheritance would not be distributed equally or properly. So what does the law say? Oh, you're going to depend on that. That's going to happen. But just so you know, you can still keep asking for me. Ask for me. depend on me. Amazing. I want you to just imagine yourself 1400 years ago, 1500 years ago, just Just think about it for a minute. You have never been given a dime of inheritance. And that is your sole means of survival. Once family passes away, when you're a woman or a child, you have no other way of going on. You don't know how

01:19:15--> 01:19:23

are you going to survive? That inheritance is massive. It could be land, it could mean property gold, silver money, so many things.

01:19:24--> 01:19:42

Now Allah says okay, you're going to get what you want. There's massive celebration going on in Medina right now. And it's very easy at that moment, that for the first time you're going to have access to this kind of wealth. You're just like thank you Allah. Thank you Allah thing. I was like, Oh, no, no, no, don't thank me.

01:19:44--> 01:19:46

You see how Allah keeps us in check.

01:19:47--> 01:19:55

I love verses like this. Because when you think it's gonna go somewhere, okay, we're gonna get what we want a handle it Oh, wait, ask for more.

01:19:57--> 01:19:59

It goes in a completely different direction. This is why I love

01:20:00--> 01:20:20

Hold on. It's it's for moments like this, where you think you know it and you think you will you're okay. Allah puts us back in our place keeps us in check. No, no, no, no. When you ask for inheritance, that's one thing but don't ever forget, I'm the one that you should be asking from the most incredible. Your dependence is still With whom?

01:20:21--> 01:20:23

And unless full of knowledge of all things Oh, yeah.

01:20:27--> 01:20:28

Yeah.

01:20:35--> 01:20:36

This was

01:20:39--> 01:20:48

Yeah, yeah. Excellent. And we're coming to that very shortly. Verse number 33. And then we're done. It looks like I'm assuming as an is at nine. Is that what it is? Yeah.

01:20:49--> 01:20:50

Is it at nine?

01:20:51--> 01:21:01

Okay. 905. Okay, I've got two minutes with you and we're done. Okay. I just want to stop it for 34 inshallah, and and that's, that will be verse 33.

01:21:03--> 01:21:16

Well at killing john Wiley coolin Jana, Mauer, the total calverley den will crumble and to benefit everyone we have appointed chairs adheres to property left by parents and relatives.

01:21:18--> 01:21:59

To those also to whom your right hand was pledged, give their due portion for life is truly a witness. When the migrants of Mecca came to Medina, the unsought would inherit from them, see how that worked. Just cuz they came from one city and say, we want to live in your city, okay, we automatically get inherited from you. If you're going to stay here. If you're going to be with our family, we're going to we automatically qualify. And this was later abrogated in that particular sooner, so it's an unfair verse 75 gram, and those whom Allah appointed as rightful inheritance under no circumstances was this allowed to be changed or compromised. So this area is to affirm.

01:21:59--> 01:22:11

Don't mess with these rules now. So you see how it worked. It was to legislate an order women get this amount, that amount, etc. Now, to stamp that rule,

01:22:12--> 01:22:31

you don't there are no changes to any of these rules. They are binding, they're permanent. Case closed. It's a contract now with your Creator. So that's what this verse is all about. Now, can I ask you something before you leave? What has sought attorney said done with your attitude with respect to women so far?

01:22:34--> 01:22:43

The suit or not you? What has the sutra done? So we've gone through 33 verses? What's your frame of mind with respect to women in general?

01:22:46--> 01:22:49

You felt elevated the Status of Women Okay.

01:22:53--> 01:22:56

What do you guys feel? so far?

01:22:57--> 01:22:59

There's a reason why I'm asking this as well.

01:23:03--> 01:23:04

Oh, dear.

01:23:08--> 01:23:08

Okay.

01:23:10--> 01:23:12

We're gonna see something. Okay, here we go.

01:23:13--> 01:23:17

Morgan, I know you're gonna say something for sure. I'll hold off in a minute. One second. Okay.

01:23:18--> 01:23:18

Listen,

01:23:20--> 01:23:28

this is one of the sutras. This is the one of the sutras that is always subject to high criticism

01:23:29--> 01:23:31

from other people.

01:23:32--> 01:23:34

They tackle the sutra

01:23:35--> 01:23:48

and stained the suta and framed it in such a way that this sort of did not liberate women, it actually oppress them further. And one of the reasons they do that is this next verse 30, for the eye of thought,

01:23:49--> 01:23:57

but that's not the only one. There are a couple other verses in the sutra. I call this Surah Surah. Nisa, you women are proud of this?

01:24:01--> 01:24:10

Yeah, yeah, absolutely. Totally agree. 100%. This is why I'm asking you again. After 33 verses,

01:24:11--> 01:24:12

has this sutra,

01:24:13--> 01:24:15

affirmed within

01:24:16--> 01:24:41

that we know whoever critiques the surah the wrong way, they got it all wrong. We know that. But I'm talking about you the carriers of this book. Do you feel the same way that it's actually uplifted, strengthened, liberated, and gave strength and power and rights to women to do you see, do you feel that so far in this journey? I hope so.

01:24:43--> 01:24:43

Yeah.

01:24:46--> 01:24:46

Yeah.

01:24:52--> 01:25:00

in which women hired for 1400 years, right. See, this is why I asked this. I would hope

01:25:00--> 01:25:41

Insha Allah, and I know that from it within you, it's there. I know that. But I want you to be able to defend and understand what you're defending when you talk about disorder. You know, when you say to people, I have a whole chapter of the Quran named after me, for somebody to say do all that, that fourth one, you, you're proud of that? Well, let me tell you, then you can say Actually, no, no, no, here are the context. Here are some of the messages that we got in that soda. As a matter of fact, the two best some of the two greatest companions to touch the ground until the day of judgment, said that there were verses selected only in this chapter that was better than everything in this world.

01:25:41--> 01:25:52

I am proud of the surah that's why I want you to feel okay. And we're going to continue to get that strength as we journey. So panicle locomole vmdk shadow Allah Allah, he'll enter stuff with over to the light
