As we begin by praising Allah subhanaw taala and bearing witness that man has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him, and we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger, we ask Allah to send his peace and blessings upon him, the prophets and messengers that came before him, his family and companions that served alongside him and those that follow in his blessing path until the day of judgment. And we ask Allah to make us amongst them, Allah him I mean, their brothers and sisters, we often study the lives of the righteous in this masjid, and the righteous qualities that they had that transfer over, because it's
not enough to simply look at the biographies of a savvy Cornell alone of the foreigners from this Oma. But it's imperative that you look at the qualities that made them those special people, just as it's important to study them. It is also important to study the hypocrites and to study the traits of the hypocrites and one of the things that's very powerful about the language of the Quran is that the Quran names very few, in fact that only names one enemy of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abu Lahab. But everybody else is described by qualities, where there may be some of that quality present within us if we're not paying attention. And this was true, both of the enemies of
the prophets lie some in Makkah, as well as those in Medina. And so when you pay attention to the qualities that Allah is mentioning about those evil people, then that gives you an opportunity to be introspective and say, Do I have some of those qualities? Now Subhanallah There is one man who is an enemy of the Prophet sly Salah when you say Allah subhanho wa Taala completely dissected this man with his negative qualities. It's this men 10 negative traits. In a series of four outs. Were ALLAH SubhanA. Allah just completely demolishes this man. Allah azza wa jal says what a tutor could live her life in Maheen hummus and Masha Amin, amin, Mina and Heidi mortared in a theme are totally
embarrassed that daddy Kozani and Canada Marlin Weber Nene. Allah azza wa jal describes him with 10 evil traits and this was a lead had been bullied on a man who was very proud and the time of the Prophet slice of them. And Allah says do not follow according to her laughing Maheen a person who's vile and who swears a lot, hummus and Masha and being I mean, he passes on scandals and tails manera and they'll add more to the theme, someone who hinders all forms of good and puts forth all the worst forms of evil to remember that he because I mean, and on top of all of that he's callous and he's a child of adultery was any. Now this man you talk about self awareness and what he did in
Molina, he goes to his mom, and he says to his mother, he says the God of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam just just revealed the nastiest takedown of me. And he mentioned 10 qualities about me, he said, I can see how nine of them are true.
But the last one I can't accept. See, these were people that boasted only in their lineage. He said that last one, I don't accept Zenni. A child of Zina and Subhanallah look how Allah subhanaw taala was exposing and humiliating these people who used to take pride and things that weren't even real. It was at that moment that his mother actually revealed to him that he was not the child of his father, a man who boasts about his father and will lead on his boasting about being a noble Arab and have the best people. And his mother tells him in that moment after the Quran was revealed that your father is actually not who you think it is, and even our bustle the Allahu Anhu Omar says that his
father was a another man who was Cubby, filthy by the name of an octopus even shoe right.
Now let's talk about Agnes. Even Sheldrake. Agnes eventual rake was a man whose name was obey, obey even a great, powerful man, eloquent man, someone who used to command a lot of presidents and Maccha had a lot of wealth. And he fits the profile but he's unique in that he carries over the traits of hypocrisy into Medina as well, so many of the verses about the monastic theme. If they're not talking about Abdullah and Obon saloon, they're usually referring to him when it comes to the specific instance. Because he really camouflages himself to every single situation with the Prophet sly salam to simply take advantage of the situation and he's not looking for the welfare of Quraysh.
He's looking for the welfare of himself. He really doesn't care who comes out of this battle between the profit side, someone Qureshi, he really only cares about his own well being he's out there for his own masala for his own benefit. And in fact, he takes the name rockness, which is a negative name, because he was on the side of the disbelievers one bet one bet that happened and he was a Khalifa of Ben Ozora. And when he saw
Ah, that bedroom was about to happen. He said to his people, the 300 people, he said, Look, I think that we have enough, courage has enough, they've got it covered. Let's get out of here. And you know, if he's really a prophet of Allah, then Allah is gonna give him victory if he's a liar than Allah is gonna humiliate him, but let's keep the clothes on our back. Let's take our caravan and let's get out of here. And so on us he actually took 300 of the kofod away from the battle of bed and not out of love for the prophets lie some of them, but just because the man was always looking out for himself. Now Subhan Allah, Allah azza wa jal continues to diagnose this man to tell us about
what type of man he is. Every single battle that happens with the prophets, I saw them, he weighs, whether he should take this side or that side who he should play to. And he happens to be an extremely eloquent man.
And this is the person who Allah subhanaw taala revealed the verse in Surah Al Baqarah Wamena Nassima yorgi volcko who fill higher to dunya well, you should Allah Allah Matthew Calvi. Wahoo Allah delivery, so this is the person who Allah is talking about, as the scholar has mentioned, that there are people that come to you and they sound so sweet. When you see the Allah Allah Matthew Colby, and they even call to Allah to bear witness and what's in their hearts.
But that is a person who has Allah Julissa, a stubborn, argumentative human being, who has no good inside of them. Now Subhan Allah, what this is referring to, is when he saw that the tables were turning, he went to Medina, came to the Prophet SAW Selim, but he didn't just take Shahada. He said, Well, La Jolla rasool Allah in Nikka hablo Nasik Illya, O Messenger of Allah, I swear by Allah, you're the most beloved of people to me, and I always tell these people about how much I love you. And he started to praise the prophets like some for his eloquence, and I knew it was only a matter of time, before Allah would give you victory, and you are going to squash your enemies and he goes
on and on and on and on.
And Allah Subhana Allah reveals this verse about him. He's not who you think he is. This person comes to you with these words, while you see the law and if you felt he has the nerve to even say Allah knows what's in my heart. Well, hola, hola. Dhulikhel Islam and Allah describes him with these qualities, which is what I want to talk about in today's clip, but for a little bit in sha Allah to Anna, a person who is quarrelsome, argumentative at all times and if you wonder the next verse will either tell us if our leader you'll see the fee however he can help with our wellness. While Hola Hola, you humble facade that when he turns around from you, they strike through the lens and they
spread fitna they spread, they spread Mischeif and they destroy crops, and animals and herds. And Allah azza wa jal does not like these people. What it's actually referring to specifically to him was after he did all this praise of the prophets, like some the man is a savage, he turns around, he starts walking. It's nighttime, he sees a group of Muslims with their crops and with their animals, he sets their crops on fire takes their animals and those off as a fee never had that conversation with the prophets. Why Selim?
What a hypocrite, a beef filthy human being, that Allah subhanaw taala is diagnosing here. And the very next verses Allah Azza says, Wamena Nassima yesterday enough, Sahaba Tila amatola Tila and there are those on the other hand, who sell themselves for the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah this is referring to the whole Babes of the world, the kebabs of the world, the Beloved's of the world, those people who gave everything up for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala they wanted nothing in return, humble to the truth as soon as the truth came to them.
Now what's the quality that Allah chose to describe him with and this is where their intimate say it's important to pause for a moment why Allah chose out of all the negative qualities of this man to boil it down to Allah duel Hassan
Lendl Islam, the Arabs used to call someone Allah duel Hassan, who always have has to have the last word in an argument.
A person who argues for the sake of arguing a person who's always quarrelsome, no matter what happens, they have they have a response, they snapped back at you, no matter what you put forth in front of them, they quickly resort to something in the name of logic, because to them, the important thing is that they walk out of that and they have the last word.
And the prophets lie some says and Hadith in Sahih Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim unbelievable reality it Allahu Allah don't hustle.
The person who Allah hates most is someone with this quality.
Now first and foremost, it relates to the revelation of truth and their inability to grasp anything of the truth and Allah's parents. I says what Tony The it'll be here Coleman luda. Allah describe the people that way. They always got to they always have an answer. They're quick to respond because they're really not trying to listen to you Jana little
They're really trying to dissect because at the end of the day, they're dissecting everything is a diversion because they don't want to abide by anything that's going to be in their minds against their interests. You know, when someone says, Let's go, I'm going to debate with this atheist, I'm going to be very honest with you sometimes. Some of you even bring someone I got a nominal some friend I want you to talk to you can tell when someone's arguing for the sake of arguing. And someone's interested in the truth, if they're not interested in the truth, and they're listening to you not with the intent of considering what you have to say, but considering how they can reply to
what you have to say, that person has another problem. And this is what Allah was talking about with Agnes, of ensuring that his most hated quality to his people was he always has to have the last word. The man argues for the sake of arguing and adultery, some constant argumentation. Now connect this to the Hadith that we mentioned a couple of weeks ago, where the Prophet sallallahu sallam said in Allah you will go to Belize I'm in a region, Allah dia to handle and OBD Sani he came out at 100 Bacara that Allah azza wa jal despises a person who's eloquent in the sense that they wrap their tongues around everything, the way that a cow wraps its tongue around its fodder, like they gotta
get involved in everything. But in this hadith, it's even more severe about origin. The most hated quality to Allah subhanaw taala is a person who always has to snap back always has a response always has a retort, that is a person who's not going to be able to grasp the truth, they will destroy the relationship with Allah and they'll destroy the relationship with the people as well.
Let it go.
All of this, this constant Emphasis within the Sunnah of the prophets lie some Mentor Academy era when Kanima Hetton. Allah guarantees you a place a special place in Ghana, where you leave off an argument, even though you have the truth on your side. Okay? How many times do you get into a fight an argument maybe with your spouse, and you've got to have the last word. It's okay, be wrong this time. It's all right, let it go. But a person who is Hassim, a person who's constantly trying to argue never knows when to put a pause on it. And that can have a spiritual element in it as well, because they always have to be right.
And so the scholars say that the diagnosis of this is Kibito. It's pride. I can't accept that I'm wrong in this situation. And so with the kofod, with the disbelievers they couldn't accept that they were wrong with Revelation. But there is a quality that then transfers over to the rest of us where a person has to know when to take a step back and for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala even in your personal relationships, it's okay. It's okay. Now, there is of course, a LG Donald Mahmoud, a praiseworthy type of argumentation, which is Dawa when a person sometimes has to debate when a person sometimes has to show the truth of Islam, show the truth of revelation but even then, with
good manners, obviously, when hikma and know a lot and Hassan with wisdom and beautiful preaching, but sometimes you have to use that type of style. You've got to argue you've got to debate but on a personal level, if you program yourself to where when anything comes to you, you automatically are thinking response
and not thinking consider
then that lack of humility is going to cost you in life. And it's a trait that ALLAH SubhanA Tirana does not like and in fact, the scholars alike have been 100 Rahim Allah mentioned the opposite of this man kanessa Helen Hagen and Lena and how llama hola who I don't know the prophets like some sort of authentic hadith the people that are easy going lenient, Allah subhanahu Bucha Anna sullen, easygoing, lenient, lenient Hainan, they are gentle, Allah azza wa jal will forbid that person from the fire in the law you handle risk of an emery equally, Allah azza wa jal loves, that a person be lenient in their affairs, right? That it's the opposite of this trait of the hypocrites a
disagreeable type of person.
Now, what does this mean for us in the world that we live in? The scholars define that a person should look at the Straighten themselves with two ways number one LGD? A little bit bottom? A person who argues falsehood, because they really want to be right, they know it's not true. But they've got to win every argument and Subhanallah if you think about the social, they're literally articles written about how social media leads us to the cycle of behavior, right? One does anyone give up in the thread? One? Does anyone give up in the argument, right? I've got to be right, no, that person said this, well, I can't not respond. Now I have to respond. And the winner is the one who simply
has more time on their hands and a harder head and a harder hearts. Because it's the person who's just not going to let it go until they get the last word and that's a trait that Allah azza wa jal hates.
And you find that the prophets I send him was to the point. Always beautiful with what he said and also was nice enough
was overlooking in this regard. So that's number one, Daniel Barton to speak in falsehood, number one cathedral husana. Well juggle that a person starts arguments or gets into arguments for no reason whatsoever. And finally, the scholars mentioned Subhanallah that a chef a Rahim Allah was the perfect embodiment of what Allah subhanaw taala mentions of someone who is looking for the truth, to arrive and not necessarily on his tongue. Not necessarily he be the one who gets the answer, right. He says, Wallahi man Allah to Allah said, I swear by Allah that I never debated anyone in law. Well, I'm Ooba Li and Allah who will help Carla Lisa Annie, only sunny here, except that I did not care if
Allah put the truth on his tongue or my tongue. And I would make dua that Allah subhanaw taala. And you'll hear on Hakata design he that Allah would put the the truth on my opponents tongue in a debate so that the truth stands clear. And I don't get the credit for it. I didn't want to win the debate. I didn't want to win the debate. I just wanted the truth to be clear. And that was from his sincerity and sincerity Rahimullah to and that's why he never used to lose debates. Because he was sincere in what he was trying to achieve. It wasn't about dominating an opponent. It wasn't about putting someone else down. It wasn't about coming out on top in any way. It was about making the
truth stand clear. On a personal level.
If a person actually thinks with that mindset, I don't have to win every argument.
I just want the truth to be arrived at in some way whatsoever. In my own personal relationships, you know what, it's okay. I can let this one go. I can hold myself back from this one. The sub with seeking the reward from Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will allow that person to benefit from both their spiritual matters as well as their worldly matters. As Pamela you'll find that even when you listen to a heartbeat you listen to a text if you're trying to skewer something, right? And at the end of it, it's I've got this question and this question and this question. It's like the man who came to the man was shot and the Rahimullah after he talked about the shape on and warning a
person from the tricks of shape on the only question that he came, he said, Hey, what is shaytans wife's name? He said to him, I didn't get invited to the wedding. I have no idea what her name was. It's irrelevant. Why are you listening to it to poke a hole so that you can find something? Because a person is into argumentation a person is into something else? That's not who we are as believers and that's not what Allah subhanaw taala loves. And so a person has to stop loving to be right and instead stead love to be rewarded by Allah azza wa jal we ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada make us amongst those who are humble in our relationship to the revelation and our relationship with Allah azza wa
jal and our relationship with the people in our lives. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us humility in our hearts to the truth and humility in our tongues. Allahumma Amin a Furukawa there was talk a lot of you were lucky when he started Muslim festival.
