Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh your brothers and sisters Welcome back to people of Quran, where every night I share with you a story about how one of our pious predecessors interacted with the Quran. You know, many times we think as we're studying the Sahaba, as we're studying the people of the past, that they didn't have some of the same concerns we have, that they wouldn't ask some of the questions that we asked. But somehow a lot, we find that a lot of times they did, despite their righteousness, and despite their piety, and there's nothing wrong with that. So this particular incident addresses a very common question that I get, I get asked this question all the

00:00:33--> 00:01:11

time. Why is it that Allah always speaks about men in the meaning what a lot always uses the male to you know, the male tends to say that they're getting this reward and that reward? How come a loss of contact doesn't speak about the women? Now, obviously, the answer to that could be that in the Arabic language, you know, the male refers to both the male and the female, meaning that you don't make something female unless there's a reason to so when a law says I don't mean the believers it by default means men and women. A loss refers to money of money, his salon as being from an economy team, which are the devout but he uses the male 10s so she's included in the ranks of an Connie

00:01:11--> 00:01:50

team. When the Prophet slicin I mentioned certain ahaadeeth like the seven shaded under the throne of a loss of Hannah Montana, and he mentioned a young man that was called by a woman of great beauty and status and he said I fear a loss of Hannah Montana By default, the scholar say it refers to women as well, okay for a young woman was called by a man of great, you know, a great, who's very attractive and she rejected that man out of her fear of a lot. It refers to her as well. Now this incident so Pamela is a question being asked to the prophets lie Selim, by none other than our mother own Sedona all the longtime on the great wife of the prophets lie Selim, one of the scholars

00:01:50--> 00:02:26

of the companions of the prophets lie Selim, she says that I said to the Prophet salallahu, Alayhi, wasallam. Yasuda, Allah, man and learn learn with corofin or an intimate Kuru region. She said, I said, O Messenger of Allah, how come we are not mentioned in the court and we've the women are not mentioned in the court and the way the men are mentioned in the column? You know, we do the same things that they do. And there though there are some natural restrictions, especially in that time, meaning the men would go out and battle the women would not and so on, so forth. But you know, they were making the preparations. They were really involved in each and every single aspect of the oma.

00:02:26--> 00:03:04

So she asked the Prophet Spicer and, and she said that the prophet SAW Selim, he was silent, meaning he thought about what she said and he was silent. And she said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam You know, he moved on you know, the conversation just went elsewhere and the prophets I said I'm had to go, and she says Phantom euro 2011 in Dublin, Ireland member, she said that he didn't answer me until he was speaking on the pulpit. She says what Anna was suddenly hooked up see fellow FF to Shadi, she said, I was combing my hair. But when I heard the prophets license speaking on the pulpit, she said, I quickly tied my hair into a bun, thumb out to seminary angle Jerry then she

00:03:04--> 00:03:43

said, I went to the door and I started to listen closely to what the prophets lysozyme was saying, and she said, Listen, I'm married to who you are all I heard him saying, and this is the verse now which is in sort of a loss of Hannah Montana says in Muslim in our Muslim it well meaning minasi Well, Pani Tina will call on eternity we'll saw the bean and we'll saw the party wasabi Dena wasabi Lottie well harsh Irina will harsh reality when the cleaner when Buddha saw the hottie, loss of contact, it goes through all these different categories.

Anwar agilon alima. Allah says, indeed the Muslim men and the Muslim women, the believing men and the believing women, the obedient men and the obedient women, the truthful men and the truthful women, the patient men and the patient women, the humble men and the humble women, the charitable men and the charitable women, the fasting men and the fasting women, the men who guard their private parts and the women who do so as well. And the men who remember a lot often and the women who do so as well, for them Allah subhanho wa Taala has prepared forgiveness and a mighty reward Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala literally listed out every single category to show that women are

00:04:26--> 00:04:59

truly equal to men, not just in the worldly sense but also in piety that women are equal in piety in economical manga lie at home that barely the most righteous of you and are the most, the most noble of you in the sight of your Lord. Or those of you who have the most taqwa and a loss of Hannah to add did not spare a single category here to show that women can compete with men and women can excel even beyond men in all of these categories. And that's the point that although each and every single ayah refers to men and women, unless there's something that makes it obvious, you know,

00:05:00--> 00:05:24

specific to men, a loss of Hannah what data means by that men and women and the believing women are just as capable and at times can even supersede believing men. So we asked a loss of Hannah hunter to join us with the believing men and the believing women in general for those alone I mean, does that mean Long Island for tuning in in Charlotte? I'll see you tomorrow for another episode of people, Paul, was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
