00:00:00--> 00:00:04

Yes he was telling me about that now it's probably because my router is far away from

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

somebody from everyone

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

else

00:00:11--> 00:00:53

What are lining down the line? I mean when I appeal to a lot more suddenly we're selling more Vatican articles so we can Mohammed in Salalah why he was so dumb. While he was like me he suddenly seemed cathedra so now we're in just 11 congratulations to all of you on finishing the first spirit of humble Dong accepted from you and allow you to move strong into the second second part of Ramadan and then the third part inshallah tada and everyday Ramadan is a day of why not have mercy and forgiveness and being in a china being freed from the punishments. Tonight in sha Allah Tada. We start with the last part of suta Toba and stretch all the way through suta Yunus into the first few

00:00:53--> 00:01:35

verses of Surah Hood. So just 11 starts from verse 93, of sort of the Toba and it goes all the way through Eunice into verse by Buddha who is parallel give a beautiful story just so my New Orleans folks I know that somebody might be watching some of you might remember I posted about Shabaab fun. I'm 11 mercy on him. Brother who loves the masjid and who passed away due to COVID-19. Just before I move on, and I used to, I used to always recite the first page and a half of sort of humans. It's one of my favorite portions of the quote, by far the first page and a half of 30 minutes up till laughs it'll dry him and happy day, oh, Blimey, I would always recite that. And so it used to make

00:01:35--> 00:02:16

fun of me said you always recite that. And then he said, I'm gonna memorize it, just by you reciting that so much. And so somehow I thought about him as I was preparing for tonight, and I lost friends that have mercy on him and grants him Shahada to me. So we get into now sort of sort of units. So sort of the Toba, as we said, sort of tobis at the end of Medina, right, it was revealed after tabuk. So we're talking about nine years after, after higit. Now you come all the way back with suta, Yunus and surah Yunus is the lowest point it's two years before Hitler. Okay, so some had a lot, it's a switch from the highest point of Islam to the lowest point. And this is something that

00:02:16--> 00:03:00

Allah subhanaw taala does with us in the poor and constantly switching us from badness and then to erdenet back to bed, right? To remind you, not to get too excited not to that you don't become that you don't become stuck in one phase of it. So the story is told in a way, that we constantly learn lessons and it's not a story book, the way that you would read a story book, but rather, it keeps taking you between these different flashpoints of Islam so that you learn the lessons that are necessary. Now what you have here is the first chapter of the Quran that's named after a prophets and it's significant that it's Yunus it his Salah, okay. And in fact, now you have after the long

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

sorta sorta unit and sort of hood. So the first two chapters that come after suta, toga are the first two chapters in the plan that are named after the prophets of Allah.

00:03:12--> 00:03:18

Why Yunus it is Salaam and then who daddy is Sunnah, Yunus who is Jonah

00:03:19--> 00:03:39

Yunus it has is set on the prophet Jonah was is not just the first suitor here to have or is not just the first prophet to have a surah named after him but he's also actually the first prophet that was mentioned to the prophets. I saw them in Revelation. Okay, where possibility hooked me up decaf? Well, that's a clean kosaka but Hootie is now down.

00:03:41--> 00:04:24

Okay, when Allah subhanaw taala revealed to the prophet SAW Simon's with a column, be patient with the decree of your Lord and do not be like the Companion of the whale, when he called out to a lot after he was swallowed. So the first prophet that the Prophet Mohammed Sai Salaam, had revelation come to him about in the capacity of the Quran was unicity salaam. And now what as you're reading the Quran, in its beautiful structure, the first surah, named after a prophet is named after Yunus it is set up and there's a profound lesson in that Why? Because Uranus is, of course, a prophet who at one point, gave up and turned away from his people, and ended up in you know, not just at a low

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

point, but physically at the bottom of the ocean, in the belly of a whale, under the darkness of the night, calling out to a loss of heroin Santa, and not only did Allah save him, but Allah elevated him. So he was better off after that Toba after that repentance than before when he turned away from his people thinking there was no hope in them. So it's very instructive that that's the first prophet that was revealed to the Prophet size on them. And that as you're reading the ad, the first slaughter named after a prophet is him. Then you have who died he has Scylla. So what's the connection between

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

Yunus and hood and the people of who they're Of course, the people that

00:05:04--> 00:05:51

there's there's some some incredible commonalities to pay attention to. Number one is the people of Yunus and the people of add, meaning the people of who God has set out. We're both idol worshipers. Okay, so it relates very clearly to the people of Mecca. One group was destroyed as an ad. One group repented and turns back to a lot and welcome their profit back, which is in the case of Yunus it is, both of these are parallels of Makkah. Why? Because some of the people of Mecca would live long enough to become Muslim and welcome the Prophet Mohammed Salalah, while he was settled, and peace be upon him back to Mecca, whereas others would be destroyed and never returned. So Subhana Allah, it

00:05:51--> 00:06:28

actually speaks to both types of people that are in Mecca, those that would be destroyed like the people of add those that would call the profit slice of them back that love the profit slice and have that believed in him when he came back to Mecca A decade later. The theme is the oneness of Allah and the hereafter, which is the Mexican theme of the poor out in general, and what these people rejected. So you basically have a choice, right? You're being called, you're either going to be like the people of human society, who called him back or you're going to be like the people of who that is insistent on their rejection. And we're dealt with, in like manner. In verse 93 of

00:06:28--> 00:07:11

suitor Yunus. there's a there's a connection. I'm sorry, in verse 93, of suta Toba, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned those who were to blame as although we enter Coronavirus Allah. They were pleased to be amongst those who held back verse 93, of suta Toba now connect that to suta Yunus where Allah subhanaw taala says, one a little bit higher to dunya wautoma. And you'll be happy I don't have the verse number actually is the second page. Probably the seventh or the eighth verse, were less penalty Allah mentions those one a little bit higher out to dunya welcome and no behalf. They were pleased with the life of this world and they found contentment or they thought that they would find

00:07:11--> 00:07:48

contentment and tranquility and a meaning they attach themselves to those false ideals and those false gods and as a result of that word, how on earth in the in the eternal sense, right? They're left behind in the eternal sense from the salvation of their Lord. So the same word is used. One group, the hypocrites, and so it's the Toba that we're pleased to be amongst those who say back and this group that we're pleased with that which is in this world that attach themselves to the things of this world. And we're pleased to be amongst added dunia and the people of this world and as a result lost everything right. So there's those that held back and were held back in the worldly

00:07:48--> 00:08:32

sense, referring to the hypocrites and suta Toba. And then those that were, that held themselves back from the Hereafter, and attach themselves to these false ideals. And so we're held back from genda in the Hereafter, and then a loss of patterns out of mentions, the the believers entering into paradise, who are, you know, who are just absolutely loving the rewards and the Felicity and that eternal blessing and delight that comes with an agenda. And just like the angels as they're gathered around the loss of Hannah Montana, it will dry out your blood, I mean, so they're saying satanic, they're praising the loss of habitat, they're glorifying him, and they're praising him and thanking

00:08:32--> 00:09:18

him for the blessings that are constantly unfolding. Before that, in verse 107, and 108 of surah Yunus Allah subhana wa tada compares messages the law, which was the messenger that was established by the hypocrites to message it callback, which was the masjid that was built on the foundation of taqwa. And so you see the continuation of that theme of two groups and pseudo Yunus right, the group of believers and the group of hypocrites, and how that manifested itself in early Medina, where in Muslim a lot of course, the hypocrites constructed a message for themselves with the aims of hypocrisy, not the aims of belief. And combat was for the believers. And Pamela just one more thing

00:09:18--> 00:09:22

as I pass it off to chef Abdullah, which is which is very beautiful.

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

Surah Yunus was revealed, according to most scholars in one sitting to the prophets license, meaning it was it was revealed as an entire soldier to the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah. And that's something that's very beautiful because it's so the whole course is so coherent and well put together but you can think of that messaging and what it means to the prophets lie Selim in those moments and then somehow right after that, the sort of hood which turn the hair of the prophets lie some of them are, you know, gray, some of the hair of the prophets lie some great which is just like with Eunice Isom, don't be diluted by the delay of the punishment.

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

You'll notice it sometimes people were delayed, and then they eventually made Toba, who already has the lambs. People were delayed but they were eventually destroyed. Don't wait for that to happen, right but instead of calling back the way that you want us It sounded even in the in the belly of the whale and then his people welcomed him back and may Toba to a loss of parents out it became a blessed nation, not a destroyed nation. And so the story of unison unlike no other prophet in the Bible, and and there's a reason why it's put first for us to take instruction from and inshallah tada with that, I'll turn it over to Sheldon.

00:10:33--> 00:10:34

This one I was about to send him a little

00:10:36--> 00:10:56

while earlier he was talking to you on Manuela Baidu, as we see, as he mentioned, just follow her on that the solo of Eunice la Salaam, was mentioned in the meccan period. And we know that there's two periods primarily there's the meccan period and there's the madonie period, the Medina and period where the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him was in Mecca for 13 years then migrated to a Medina

00:10:57--> 00:11:42

stay there for 10. Now when seeing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam life, in the time in Mecca, we understand that it was a time of, of establishing the firm hearts, but the firm hearts with Allah subhanho wa Taala exalted, to ensure that your connection with Allah is firm, because there will be as there were many encounters that could shake the essence of your faith, where there are people that are blatantly violent with the prophets of Allah, and it will send them and understanding that, throughout all of these trials, what's going to literally get you through is your connection with God. And that is something that's profound, because even the higit on when they

00:11:42--> 00:11:56

migrated, they left everything and as I mentioned, all I have is Alon is messenger, you know, the companions, and all they have as a lion is messenger. So to reach that state to where everything your belongings are gone or taken or you know, are taken from someone.

00:11:57--> 00:12:40

But you have that belief in a law and that is what keeps you content. That is what keeps you firm, because you've established that relationship. Now scholars have mentioned that that was the primary focus of the Met converses is primarily to establish who God is, and who he is not, and why that matters to the human being, who he is and who he is not. And why that matters. Basically, for you to understand God's names and attributes and the actualization of that in your life, and the response that is expected from you to Allah. So when you know that God is the Creator, there's a response that's expected and anticipated from you to at least go back to him ultimately, because a lot being

00:12:40--> 00:13:24

the creator means that he brings things into existence, and we only take elements of creation and manipulate it to make certain things in this life but Allah is the one that brings every essence in of things into this life. So that's just the name creator. Look at all the other names. So in the last chat and the last portion of this verse and the chapter of Yunus verse number 107, were lost panda with Darla is establishing something just to remind you now there are many things that we as Muslims believe, in our subconscious mind. But when events when trials and tribulations when encounters happen to us, does that subconscious belief that we have activated to our conscious mind

00:13:25--> 00:14:06

when we're talking about, you know, right now, or, you know, where as we will speak, speak in the future about this, what is going on with the virus and any sickness and any affliction that we may face, any little any harm or affliction, adversity, we should know that Allah subhanho wa Taala has ultimate control over it, irregardless of what we may see with our own eyes. And when one sees something with their own eyes, and may contradict what they are supposed to believe. That's what the firm hearts are exactly that they stay firm upon it. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in this verse, and it's actually some kind of law, it's kind of a response because the verses that were before that

00:14:06--> 00:14:42

is when the prophets of Allah and it was something he tells him to speak to the people about primarily to heat. So the verse that goes before that, I mentioned before that in verse number 106, he says, Well, that's at the root mean doing the law, he met a young feral cat with a look and do not call on other than a law with that, that does not harm nor benefits you for, in fact, to indicate even mean avoiding mean and if you were to do that for barely, then you would be of the oppressors. Now the oppression is of what the oppression of the soul because oppression is taking something out of its rightful place, and putting it somewhere else. That's why we have human rights,

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

the rights that we have, that the laws have given us, or that we deserve, if they're taken to put somewhere else we have the right to demand those rights to be put in their proper place. The right of Allah is to be worshipped and shown gratitude. But when you commit a sin, you've oppressed your own self because Allah is only he is a self sufficient

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

So here the characteristic of the benefactor and the one that brings harm is a loss of contact with Donna and that's where he comes in. He shows in the next verse, as after understanding what am says called law, we'll be looking for that Cassie fella who

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

were in unity, calculate and fill out all that effectively.

00:15:18--> 00:15:58

You see him in your shed, I mean anybody who was a fool or him the verses as follows. And if Allah should touch you with any adversity, there is no remover of it except him. Let's stop here for a minute, if allow us to touch you with any adversity. And the beauty of the Arabic language is that the word indium seska, and it is what is called Joomla shop. Here it is a conditional sentence here to show Firstly, that if there was any kind of affliction, and the word young says, The literally means when when a hand touches the skin, so muscle yet as a must, is to rub something or to touch something. So Allah is giving the slightest form to show you that if any kind of border and that's

00:15:58--> 00:16:39

where he uses here, he uses the indefinite form which is called Nikita, what am says colo below Rin? Any type of adversity, whether that adversity is a spiritual adversity, a bodily adversity, as we see with iubat Hmm, and you know, spiritual and also, the situation like of loneliness of you know, may have lost your job, family member, things of that nature. So, any kind of adversity it regardless of what kind of adversity it is that you perceive as an adversity, and may later be a lesson for you a loss of kind of what data is the only remover and the way that he uses this in Arabic for that cash effect. As we spoke about before, I think it was our first lesson, when the

00:16:39--> 00:17:24

loss of kind of what Dallas's daddy Kalki taboo that way, but that that is the book, there is no doubt in it to where it's showing that as we say, La Ilaha, that is the negation of a genius, or of any type of that actual object or situation he's talking about. Anything that you can fathom and perceive, it falls into that class. So he says that kashia, there is no remover of it. No human being, no doctor, no medicine, nothing has the ultimate authority to remove it. A law uses those as means, but we do not discount the means we rely on the law. And we use the means and that is the actualization of trusting in a law that is the truth. And he says there is no remover except Him, we

00:17:24--> 00:18:03

add that can be Hayden, and if he wants for you Good for that all day. Before the end there is there is no repeller of his bounty, notice how he says, The Good is His bounty, that's the father, that the higher any higher Allah gives to you, that's his virtue upon you. And when one recognizes that, they realize it's a nightmare, but if one is negligent of that, that's where there is no opportunity for them to show gratitude to Allah. And that is a very, very important aspect of our belief and our closest to Allah, when people that were worshipping idols, the polytheists, during the time of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him, it was exactly that message, always reminding them, what

00:18:03--> 00:18:44

ultimately brings what brings harm, what brings benefit, this is the one you should go back to the ultimate source, not the portions of creation, that have a cause, these are just an effect. So go back to the source that allows a panel with data and forces and acknowledge, you see will be he may mean anybody, he causes it to reach whom He wills from his servants, whatever he wants to reach his servants how he wills when he wills. That's up to Allah Subhana, who went down up to a law that exalted and he says his servants to remind you, that you are his, you are His servants. And whether you know it or not, you are His servants, because you have no ultimate authority to remove any harm

00:18:44--> 00:19:25

from yourself. As soon as you are in a state of deprivation, you rely on something else, why not rely on the creator of everything that exists on this earth, including yourself. And that is the call here, that he's calling them away from worshipping anything other than the Creator of the heavens and the earth. And a law concludes by saying, and he is the Forgiving the merciful who will fool around him because these are for being any mishaps or any mistakes or slips that we may have made in regard in regards to this reality of remembering that Allah is the ultimate benefactor, and he is the only one that can ultimately remove any harm for us. And he's the merciful because when we

00:19:25--> 00:19:59

see any, any harm that may affect us, we should understand that ultimately, it is a mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And what's so beautiful is when we face a quote, unquote, quote, unquote, trial or tribulation, how many times years later, we say Wow, that was a lesson that was learned. It could have been worse. It could have been this it could have been that but we look at it and we see the glasses have fallen as a province that a lot of someone said you were going through. He said, I love optimism, to be optimistic and to realize that the mercy of Allah

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

See, I quoted as saying that it encompasses everything. So May Allah subhanaw taala make us of those that always look at everything as a mercy and realize that anything that is good within our psychologic state, and the way that we think, in front of us around us, is that from his virtue for us to go off to kick him and just for the benefit of the viewers. Sure, Abdullah just talked about 107. From Eunice I was talking about 107108 from a toga with measured lot and measured all that. So my mistake, I realized that as Villa started speaking, that it didn't make sense because it's not, it's a makansutra sounds like how to measure the rod and go back get there. So, my mistake the

00:20:38--> 00:20:51

coffee hasn't kicked in yet. pharma stocks, brains not fully functioning. Yeah. Verse seven, was, as I said, in alladhina, Liam's really hot and now what we'll do, we'll hire to do what Matt and we'll be happy living.

00:20:52--> 00:21:27

On. So verse seven was the reverse sort of units. Were a lot of talks about water a little bit higher to dunia using the same word as in sort of Toba. They are pleased with the life of this world, they take refuge in the life of this world, rather than in Allah subhana wa tada and then drawing the comparison with the believers. So up next we have Dr. Ruth mount emerging Hamdulillah, our Director of Research evaluation, who's written a lot Mashallah in the last few months, especially about COVID-19 some of the surveys that have been put out there on uncertainty some of the papers about understanding what's happening, very pleased to have him with us tonight inshallah

00:21:27--> 00:21:30

toss with Dr. Islam. Follow take us away.

00:21:31--> 00:21:41

Does that refresh your memory level? SWAPO? slammer rasulillah, water early, he was a human. Voila. And Shall I love to reflect over some of the items with the Toba? This is a portion that I find very beloved to me.

00:21:42--> 00:22:13

It's probably you know, yesterday, let's do this with Toba. And today, like you know, one of the things that people often remark about the Soto is that, you know, it's a very like tuffs word, right? It's a kind of hardcore in some ways. But like, I always remind myself this is called sort of October, this is a little bit chapter of like, forgiveness. And and I want to highlight kind of how Allah subhanaw taala facilitates for people based on their intentions. And so Shiva, you mentioned this earlier about kind of the contrasting between, you know, different nations of between those who rejected their profits and accepted their profits. And Allah does this and sort of tell but when it

00:22:13--> 00:22:47

comes to people who've rejected prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, versus those who accepted Him and of course, even made mistakes, but turn in repentance towards him. And so I'm just always overtaken by a loss of vastness and his forgiveness for those who come with a repenting heart. He facilitates for everyone who wants good, he makes it easy for them. So it's popular in in these is and I'll speak about about battling to book, which also was mentioned yesterday, when the Muslims were marching out to meet the Byzantines. Suddenly, you find the way that two different groups and so on the hypocrites they start excuses, you find the Prophet Muhammad was a sort of

00:22:47--> 00:23:20

facilitate for them. And he said, Okay, fine, you don't want to go I'm not gonna make you go. And there was one example from that, that I wanted to highlight that I find just so absurd. And this is an example of a jet in place. And that, you know, as a prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam as gathering everybody in he told everybody, no one is excused unless you're either ill or financially incapable, every able bodied, financially competent man has to get up and come. And so one man or just didn't face he was a hypocrite. He went to the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam, and or the prophet SAW him and said, How do you imagine fighting the Byzantines this year? So he came up with literally the worst

00:23:20--> 00:23:41

excuse I could ever imagine, he said, went to the prophet and said, I would rather you excuse me and not subject me to such a difficult test by people know very well that no man is more infatuated by women than I am. I fear that if I see the Byzantine women and their beauty, they might not I may not be able to resist their temptation and safale You see, the Prophet Muhammad says, okay, you don't have to come.

00:23:42--> 00:24:25

But then I wanted to compare this with the attitude of the believers and a lot of talks about this in verses 117 118 and 119. Allah says, Look at tabouleh who is going to be when mahadji Dena will unsought and livina available peace out and it was something new about the Makati as you may know so metabolically him in Nairobi him in Nairobi him for him, while a celebrity Latina who live who had the delicate lake in order to be Morocco but also offered Allah him and possible movano Allah mother German ilaha illa Illa de metabo anemia tubal in the law whatsoever Rahim. Yeah, you were living Armando. palot worku Masada. So these beautiful is where Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about how he

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

has Allah has forgiven already forgiven the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the mohajir rune, those who had migrated to Medina and the answer those were from people of Medina who follow the Prophet Mohammed. So saddam in the hour of difficulty, meaning in this battle of the book, after the hearts of a party of them had almost inclined towards doubt. And then he forgave them, indeed, a loss of them kind and merciful. And Allah has also forgiven the three who are left behind to the point that the earth closed in on them in spite of its vastness and their souls were constricted upon them, and they were certain that there is no

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

No refuge from Allah except in him, then he turned to then a lot turn to them so they could turn to Him in repentance. Indeed, Allah subhana wa tada is the one who accepts the repentance and is the merciful, or you who believe, be mindful of Allah and be with those who are true. And so this verse gets at

00:25:17--> 00:25:55

Pella, lots of Hanover, how he is so forgiving of people. Of course, those who do righteous acts like the Prophet Muhammad wa Salaam, and the righteous companions, but even those who make mistakes, and even those who make major mistakes, as long as the heart of the believer is pure, as long as the heart of the believer turns towards a loss of control, without a level always accept that turning. And so a few stories come to mind that highlight these, if one of them is Pumbaa, you find a judge with his excuse that I don't want to be distracted by women, you find the opposite example, there was seven different companions who didn't have the wealth to travel. And they were crying their eyes

00:25:55--> 00:25:59

out, because a Prophet did not have an animal for them to write on. And

00:26:00--> 00:26:40

while two of them were actually left the company, the Prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam in tears, they ran into another Sahabi man named Do you mean even Ahmed, and when they told me why they were crying, me and gave them a candle, he hadn't said go ahead and join the profit and loss of them. So you see those who want good, a low facilitate good for them. The other the ayah talks about why the phenethyl and also the three. So I want to mention the three that Allah talking about in this verse, also the fourth, the verse doesn't speak about, and that is that a few days after the army departed for the book, there was a one man from amongst those four. Again, he's not the three that's

00:26:40--> 00:27:17

mentioned in the verses name is Abu Quezada. So, what all four of these shared in common was that there was four righteous believers who did not get up and make the preparations on time for the battle. And they came up, you know, in their mind, they were just procrastinating a little bit lazy, but they were sincere. And one of them have a quesadilla. He happened to just delay, delay delay until the army had already left. And so the army had left and one day he comes back home number is burning hot during this time, he comes home, and he has two wives, and each wife had prepared for him a wonderful meal with cold water in the shade of their yard. And so when he went to his yard,

00:27:17--> 00:27:50

and he saw his wives and the food prepared, his mind went to the Prophet Muhammad was awesome. And he thought about the prophet or they said, I'm traveling in the burning hot desert, with you know, that sort of those circumstances and he told his wives, that the Messenger of Allah is suffering and the burning sun and the stormy wind, while I enjoy the coolest shade and the delicious food in the company of two beautiful women in my own home, he said, This is not fair. By Allah, I will not enter either of your places until I have caught up with the Messenger of Allah. He got up he got on his camera, he took off and he caught up with the Prophet. And he quickly caught up to the Prophet

Muhammad SAW saddam, the army was into book. And the companions told the Prophet that they also love there's somebody who's coming. And the Prophet said, Let it be with him. And when he got close enough to companions told the Prophet that indeed it was. So you see again how Allah says Allah and the Prophet when he came to the Prophet. He apologized, the prophet accepted his apology, and he asked a lot of forgiveness as well. So you see that of those four sincere ones one was able to in the middle of his heedlessness, he got woken up and he ran to Allah, and it was accepted. What happened to the other three that a law has given? law says,

00:28:24--> 00:28:54

and the three of them were gathered the Malik morata, ignore obeah. And he learned even from a young cop narrates his whole story in such a beautiful story. God talks about, he said that I had never been in a better financial or physical situation to go out for more. But however, when people were preparing, I just kept getting lazy and told myself tomorrow, tomorrow, I'll go by it. Eventually, the army left and I was like, You know what, I can still get ready in a day or two. Still, for whatever reason, a few days pass, he said, I didn't make the preparations. And then he noticed that he was walking around Medina, he only noticed two types of people there. He said he only noticed

00:28:54--> 00:29:28

hypocrites are people who are financially incapable of going are actually more physically incapable of going. And during this time that he's sitting there thinking, Man, I should have gone, the prophet is in the book. And he asked the companions like where is COVID nomadic? And once a hobby? He says yes, will love his wealth, his arrogance have made him stay behind. And some will either bingeable he interjected. He said, what a foul remark. Yeah, almost rule of law. We have no nothing bad of him. And the Prophet, he stayed silent. So in this follow his his beautiful lesson that you know, when your brother is down, he's doing something wrong and your sister, it's not the time to

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

kick them, right that this is, you know, we often make we try to rationalize their behavior and might say, well, they did this for this bad reason. That'd be a bad reason. Rather than saying, you know, what are all the possible excuses they could have had, we should have the 70 excuses for our brothers and our sisters. God continues. He says as the army returned to Medina, he said that he was like, What am I going to say to the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam, and he's like the Prophet would come back from his travels. He would go to the masjid and all the hypocrites they went and they gave their excuses. A prophet accepted their excuses, and God comes and he says,

00:30:00--> 00:30:36

jasola had I been speaking to anyone on the face of the earth except for you, I would have been able to avoid his anger by giving some excuse. But I know for sure that if I were to tell you a lie to when your pleasure today alone would make the truth known to you, and I would incur Your wrath tomorrow. However, if I told you the truth, and you weren't happy with me today, I would hope for a better result with Allah. By Allah, I had no excuse. I have never been in a better physical or financial circumstance than when I stayed behind. And the Prophet looked at him and said, Yeah, God, you have indeed told the truth. Now wait for Allah's judgment. And then upon that God goes back

00:30:36--> 00:31:12

home. And he finds out that he asked the Prophet did anyone else, you know, say something similar to what I did? And he said, Yes, Murata and he loved it. So he felt good that you know, there's other people who are also like truthful, I'm gonna, you know, I'm glad I did what I did what I did. So the prophets upon law that the judgment came down, he told the companions to boycott these three companions for 50 days, not to say a word to them. And the other two would often hear Hillel were so distraught, they stayed in their houses. They didn't even want to get out because people wouldn't speak to them but God kept going day after day to Masjid it says alarms you look at the Prophet no

00:31:12--> 00:31:50

one would say that I'm back to him profit would not look at him in the eyes. And it's probably to the point that this became like news like everywhere people knew about this boycott that the king of us and another region sent a letter to tell God that you know what you've been harmed mistreated, I will not do that to you come to me and accept my fate and copy burn that letter. He's like mad is my situation got so bad that these that these other people want to invite me to their way. And then it got worse the profit then or the wives of these three to distance themselves from their husbands. And so 50 days later, at February time, God you heard a voice from the top of a mountain gap, Malik

00:31:50--> 00:32:27

rejoice, and he knew this is good news. Finally he ran to the masjid. He went to the Prophet Muhammad wa Salaam. And the Prophet told them up Shin Yacoub, be, be happy, be joyful. This is the happiest day of your life since your mother gave birth to you, as part of the lesson I take from this and I'll end with this is that the truth is not always easy to adhere to. Sometimes there's even a steep price to pay for sticking to the truth. But there is a payoff. paying a small price is worth it for an eternal reward. And no one would take $1 today and give up a million dollars tomorrow. So Allah forgave those three, who literally the earth was constricting upon them. That's

00:32:27--> 00:32:31

how it felt to them. Because of that sincerity they had and Allah said oh you who believe

00:32:33--> 00:32:43

me mindful a lot and be with those who are truthful. So when you're in the company of the truthful inshallah you'll find yourself doing the same. ask Allah, Allah to make me and all of us amongst the truthful and to be amongst the truthful, just

00:32:48--> 00:33:28

how I mean, it's really telling that this sort, which is so severe, it's about them on Africa. It is harsh. It's called Sula, Toba. It's called this sort of repentance, like as if to invite people back. And so Pamela in this situation. You know, a lot of people think that when they make Toba, that means that the consequences of their sins are gone. That's not true. But what that really means is that while you might face some consequences, as after you're sincere Toba in this life, it frees you of any consequences in the hereafter and the last pantiles most forgiving and most merciful. And if a person is sincere in their Toba to a loss of contact and they're willing to endure whatever

00:33:28--> 00:33:49

it's going to take to come back to him and surely he's always willing to take back the sincere, the sincere repentance and desire to look out for that beautiful rendition of the story of Caribbean the others must be pleased with them and inshallah tada tomorrow night. We will continue with just 12 so I was like laughing and everyone for tuning in. So I'm like more into why he would cancel
