to her Geralt is a Surah that really teaches us community ethics, and how do we interact with each other and how do we fulfill each other's rights? Of course, before everyone's rights, comes the rights of Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah subhanho wa taala. He begins the surah by discussing the rights of Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because if we cannot fulfill the rights of Allah and His Prophet, Allah, He said, There is absolutely no way we can fulfill each other's rights. So Allah subhanho wa taala, he begins the surah by first of all, addressing the believers. And this is something that I've said earlier that anytime Allah says,

00:00:46 --> 00:01:30

Yeah, your lady and I know, according to the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu, this is a point where we have to pay close attention to Allah Subhan Allah to Allah, Allah begins a surah with you Hallerin Amano. And then after that, and by the way, the alumni they say that one of the key reasons why Allah says yeah, you're Latina Eminem, is because this is addressing the believers and the believers have a a personality of Samir and Aparna. They have said that we will believe in Allah we listen to Allah and we will obey Allah subhanho wa taala. So if you listen to Allah, and you obey Allah and you have committed to this, now you will listen to what Allah subhana wa Taala has to has to tell

00:01:30 --> 00:02:12

you. Allah says, Learn to cut demo, do not move forward. Learn to cut the move Bay in a year the Gila he was a soldier, he did not move forward of Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what does that mean? There was a harbor, there was some Sahaba and especially there were some Bedouin people who will sometimes come in sit in the modulus and in the gathering of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And what they will do is that sometimes they will talk amongst themselves, and they will say that perhaps Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should pass a certain verdict, or a certain fact wha sometimes they will say that why don't you go and you give

00:02:12 --> 00:02:58

your opinion, to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why don't we just go and tell the Prophet alayhi salam, what we think is right, what makes sense to us. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling these people that you are not allowed to move forward of Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you're not allowed to give your own opinion. Even if a person is sitting in front in front of the Prophet alayhi salam and the Prophet alayhi salam says something and a person says I have a different opinion even that is not allowed. You're not even allowed to give your own opinion even before the property he some tells you what is Allah's opinion and the property isms opinion, mean to

00:02:58 --> 00:03:42

give your own suggestions you like today people say, man today indeed, you know, this is what I think should be. This is exactly what people do. What they're doing is they're moving above they're moving ahead of Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And when people say this is almost as if they are belittling, Allah's intelligence is almost as if they're saying the my intelligence is greater, that there should be something part of our deen that ALLAH SubhanA wa did not think about it, and hence this is my own opinion. So that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala he revealed this verse. And the reason why he reveal also this verse is to send a very clear message to

00:03:42 --> 00:04:27

the entire community, to the entire ummah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that when it comes to the matters of your deen, you do not have any opinion. You do not have a right to say something against Allah and His Prophet SAW Salem, or to even suggest that Allah and His Prophet Assam should give or should should say something about a certain matter. You're not allowed to do this. And then Allah subhana wa Taala says, Well, what up law? Why what Aquila because in all your affairs, be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala when you are reminded of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Rasulullah sallallahu it was send them that they said something about a certain manner, do not

00:04:27 --> 00:04:59

become defensive about it. You know, subhanAllah there are people I've said this before, there are people when you tell them that brother you're doing something that is wrong, do not get into my affairs. Wallahi people say this, do not get into my affairs and not as if I'm telling them that what I feel like is right and wrong. But when they are violating the Quran and the Sunnah and you tell them you're doing something that is wrong, their first response is like a defense mechanism. Do not get into my matters will lie they say these things do not get into my matters.

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

What will they say to Allah subhanho wa Taala de judgment? Will they say to Allah that do not get into my matters? Will they say these kinds of things? I mean, we have to understand that when we play this defense mechanism and we push people away, and we don't want anyone to give us an advice, what will we say to Allah subhana wa Taala what the Kula This is why Allah says what up Allah and then Allah subhana wa Tada says, in Allah semi on Ali moon, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the All Hearing what Why did Allah subhana say send me on because Allah is telling these people that when you sit together in front of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you push each other and you

00:05:41 --> 00:06:22

chit chat amongst your amongst yourself, that perhaps the Rasul Assam should pass a certain fatwa, when you say these kinds of things, Allah subhanaw taala is hearing your chit chatter. Allah Subhana Allah is Hearing what you're saying to each other. And not only that, but what's in your heart. What's in your heart, Allah subhanho wa Taala Eileen one, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows that also. So it is, it is important that when it comes to all of our social matters, when it comes to our personal matters, there is no opinion, but the opinion of Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is the key thing that you know, we need to understand Subhanallah I've gotten into many

00:06:22 --> 00:07:00

families and family matters and so forth. And you know how many times I hear the same thing over and over again, then stay out of my matter. You don't have a right to tell me what's right and what's wrong, once again, led to Kadeem obeying the law, he was a Sunni, he worked up Allah. So one is that we cannot move ahead of Allah and His Prophet SAW Selim, when it comes to Allah, when he says something when the Prophet alayhi salam says something that is where you and I, we don't have an opinion after that. But I want to tell you about another issue that you know, we are facing today. You know, subhanAllah there are people who send me time and time articles, articles written by

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

intellectuals and so forth. And one thing that you see in this day and age is many people see and knowledge is something that real knowledge of Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim is not acquired in the universities, it is acquired by the oil Ummah, you go and you sit with your alma, you sit in the Sahaba of your Alma and this is a a system that has been going on from before your son. This is why this is called a Senate. Abdullah Mobarak. He says, Nolan is snad law Parliament Shama Shah, if there was no isnaad Anyone could say whatever they want to say your son, but they all learn from us allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he taught to the sahaba. The Sahaba talk to the

00:07:43 --> 00:08:24

tambourine. They taught it to the Tabatha, we are in Africa, but they were in generation after generation. Piece people have taught other people, they were the teachers, they were the students. Later on, they became the teachers, they taught more students. And this is how knowledge gets passed on from one generation to the next generation. My teachers i Till today, I have a Senate, that from my teachers all the way to Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi, wasallam, I have a certificate. This is how sis the system works. When it comes to today, there are many people who are who are not even going in studying with the orlimar. But they're going into universities, and they're setting Islam

00:08:24 --> 00:09:04

over there. And what they're doing is that they're coming out, they're graduating from the University, where there you have professors who are not even Muslims teaching about Islam, and they're teaching about the ACA of Islam, they're teaching about the laws of Islam, and they're not even Muslims. In many cases, in many cases, there might be Muslims, but that might be even far from Islam. And yes, there are very, very few professors all over America who have studied from traditional, you know, from traditional scholars and so forth, but majority of them have not. Now you have people graduating from the these universities, writing articles taking the Quran and the

00:09:04 --> 00:09:51

Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Salem and giving it their own interpretation, reading their own Tafseer of that idea. And they're taking the Haram and turning it into halal and taking the halal and turning into haram. And these are articles that are being pushed out constantly online. And because once again, the online system is such that there is a wealth of information today. You go online on Google you put something you'll find so many things to read. The information is an overload online, but it's not true in USA, it's not I mean, it's the problem is that when people they go online and they start reading these kinds of things, that is where we see the problem. So not only today Do we

00:09:51 --> 00:09:59

have to understand that when it comes to my personal life when it comes to our social affairs. First comes Allah and His Prophet SAW Salem, but you

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

becomes now our our obligation to protect the integrity of the Quran to protect the integrity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and whatever tough scene, whatever explanation that was given by our own Ummah a long time ago, that is our Alma or the Sahaba, or the province and setting himself whatever explanation they gave. That is the true explanation of the Quran. If someone comes today and says, I have studied from such and such University, and they take a certain verse of the Quran because I read these articles before will lie they are taking verses of the Quran, completely ignoring any opinion of the past, and they're giving their own opinion about this verse, And now and

00:10:42 --> 00:11:22

they are turning the Haram into Halal when we this is also part of our responsibility to protect this, just like we protect it in our personal life in our communal life is also important that we understand that these kinds of people when they move ahead, this is what they this is what Allah is saying. Love to cut the movie in a delay What are three, one is in your action life, but even when it comes to our own opinions, we cannot move ahead of Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so we'll leave it inshallah just one idea today. But the most important thing is in all of our daily affairs, personal affairs, communal affairs, family affairs, first comes Allah and His

00:11:22 --> 00:11:51

Prophet sallallahu it was send them and then it comes everything afterwards. If they have said about something, we will exactly follow that. And if someone is reminding us, then Allah saying it up Allah be fearful of Allah subhanho wa Taala you may have pushed them away. But what will you say to Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment, I ask Allah subhana wa to give all this obviously tofi to first put Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ahead in all of our matters, and Mirabal I mean, what does akmola hate assalamualaikum cattle
