Channel: Omar Suleiman
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah ricotta everyone welcome back to put on 3430 and hamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah while he was talking to Manuela, as we're getting into just 26 that means that we are getting into night 26 and then of course night 27 so Pamela, we're getting to the end, we asked last pants out to accept it and to bless us and keep us steadfast and sincere and to make us amongst those who have accepted on the bond and accepted data to the other alumni. I mean, as of tonight, we have a very dear beloved friend, who I haven't seen for some time, so we were spending some time catching up Chef modied Rd 100 illa who is from Minnesota 100 enough, and we have known
each other for a very long time Chef modied I remember we share the same teachers and handed it on sort of how to manage having Allah to Allah insha Allah solly happy the whole line I remember Chef modied
literally it's you know, year after year I don't know how long it's been but it's been a very long span around shakes a lot and urantia Hudson but Chef modied is the ageless wonder Masha. Allah has not aged one bit of radical love but has grown in knowledge and wisdom beyond our our years of 100 Allah and has been a great contributor and is the Imam and Meza Wilbekin in Minnesota and one of the people on Charlotte's been tonight I'll be working with the appian inshallah Tada. So we've had a few new additions that inshallah we plan to do some things with, but chef Modi It is a great pleasure to have you at home the non Brahmin with us. Now they're in second location.
So I have to ask you chef here in Minnesota, and I don't want to get you hurt by saying which restaurants the best restaurant so I sometimes ask the guests you know, like, because I know it could get personal there and Mashallah, you have so much so many restaurants. There are so many places there so I'm going to ask you something else. What do you think is the most underrated thing about the Minnesota Muslim community?
it would be the Somali restaurants they will have very beautiful food but you know, very awesome delicious food but people when they come to Minnesota, they talk about other restaurants. They don't mention about some of the restaurants is owned by the local communities, local clovers
is the food
Mashallah I would say definitely the Somali food but also the community right Michelle, I like it's the people they're incredible. I always tell people some handle on that my favorite place to teach is Minnesota, and to be around the brothers and sisters that are there to Vata Cola, but Chamonix Dalek don't start to mention which restaurants because then you're going to get angry messages. And you forgot to mention this one and that one, so I want to spare you that.
But as a result, it's beautiful food and beautiful people have the navbar I mean, weight loss products are preserve you and bless you chef. We're looking forward to your insights and shall not
say this without him. The last time I stood out, he was sacked me Manuela, we get started in sha Allah Tada. Now, as I said, with just 26 and this is the juice that starts to bring back the other but with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the mannerisms with the messenger sallallahu Sallam and I know that our beloved chef Abdullah is going to be talking about some verses from sort of that yet. And our beloved chick movie, we'll be talking in Charlottetown, about some of the verses of energy, right, so I want to just sort of lay out as much as I can the setup background of the sequence of the sutras because they're deeply tied together. And actually, if you just look at the names of the
suitors, sorbitol cough, is the heights. And that refers to the last warning that is being given by who that is Toronto's people. And then after that comes sort of Mohammed, which is also known as throat that pre tag, the fighting that takes place afterwards, right, because of the warnings that were not heated, and the Prophet slicin being driven out of his home and the believers being driven out of their homes from Mecca, and then eventually the battles that take place. And what comes after the battles is a thought, which is the conquest but maybe not the conquest that you have in mind when you think about the data. And then after that comes of who do Roth, which is the settling of
the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in Medina, and the construction of a maddening society and the essentials for the construction of any society that seeks to abide by the way of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So even the sequence is very powerful. But I'll just highlight just a few of these verses and Charlotte's out of first of all from certain off, which is that final warning that is being given in verse
Number nine could knock on too big I'm gonna rustle one other email you follow me when we come in a tabula, you're in a warmer and I know the Ron mobian that the profit slice I'm so say I am not the first of the messengers, I'm not some unique, you know, manifestation of prophets and messengers. And that's something that's really important is that the objection that they had to the Prophet slice of them was that he's not an angel. You know, physically, he's not an angel, civilize them, he's not a supernatural being, why is he a prophet that walks in the, you know, in the marketplace that relieves himself that talks like a human being that is a human being, and the profit slice, and
I'm saying, not going to be the admin or Also, I'm not the first messenger, nor am I the first messenger like this. And somehow this is actually an answer to the objection, that, you know, the People of the Book might have to the profit slice of them, as well as the pagans that if you compare the Prophet slicin, on to the Prophets, and the messengers of old, as far as his nature, it his Salatu was salam, he is a prophet like Moses, it is set up right more than anyone else. And that is the prophecy of the prophets. I send them one of the clear prophecies of him in the Bible, a prophet like Moses, so he is like the messengers that came before. And I don't know what will happen to me
and what will happen to you.
The first you don't mention a double meaning here. One of them is an objection being answered on the part of the pagans, which is, when is the day of judgment going to happen? is God going to give you victory? If you truly are a prophet? What's going to end up happening when we actually do fight? Like, let's say that we reject you? Is the promise of Allah gonna come upon us? Or is it all going to turn out to be fantasy? So it was an answer to that objection. But also, some of the Sahaba mentioned that the prophets lie some saw in a dream, a land that had palm trees and water, and the Prophet slicin. And when he related this dream to the companions, they thought that you know, that
there was going to be some harm that was going to be alleviated. Soon, they thought that this was, you know, something to be optimistic about that a hit it off was on the horizon, some sort of migration was on the horizon. And as the persecution intensified, they asked the prophets lie some about that dream. Now, obviously, we know that the prophets lie some initially interpreted the dream to be thought of, but it wasn't thought it was actually an Medina. So because they both have very similar terrains. So in any case, that is something that also answer some of the Sahaba that are wondering what's going to happen with us and what is next. Then the prophets lie Selim is told, put
our item in Canon and the law he will come forward to me he was shahida shyy them and Benny is like Elijah mythri he for arm and I was talking about them. In Allah Allah, they will call them while you mean to tell them Oh, Prophet, did you consider what would be you know? Or tell them did you consider what will be your situation? Where shall he shall he do remember any Israel when you disbelieve? But a witness from the children of Israel bears witness upon the prophets I send them and he believes and you show pride. Verily, Allah does not guide a transgressing people. They're in and out. Most of them say this refers to Abdullah and no Salaam or the allow time I'm with the Chief
Rabbi of Medina. His name was actually a hill slain with Assad, and her slaying had been saddam. And when he saw the Prophet sigh Salaam, and he heard the prophets lie Selim, he immediately validated the Prophet slice of them and said he is the Prophet of Allah and dedicated himself to Deen and became a great scholar and companion of the religion. So he's not just any rabbi, he's not just anyone from being a slave. This is the Chief Rabbi of Medina who recognized the prophets license instantly. Whereas these people who had the prophets license amongst them for decades they knew him for up to 50 years and they still rejected him several lines that I'm despite bearing witness to his
character. And there's a great you know, analogy to be to be drawn here in the sense that of the love No settlement will be a lot of time Whoa, did not know a saw that I mean, the profit slice to them through living with him and through his character, but he knew what the character would be of the messengers to come. And so these people in Mecca, they knew the character of the prophets by Sunday lived with him and they testify to his character previously, but then when the message came, they rejected the message of the loving to set up out of the pureness of his heart.
He already knew what the message was. And he just needed to confirm the character of the messenger and the signs of the messenger with the message so when he saw the profit slice that he saw his smile on his thought to a salami so that's not the face of a liar. The first words of the Prophet slice I'm in Medina Africa Salaam, spread peace amongst yourselves ultra in Milan, feed the poor amongst you to uphold
ties of kinship to pray at night while other people sleep. He said this is the message of the Prophet right This was the first message he heard from him. So he immediately in an instant accepted the Prophet slice on them on the basis of the immediate ramifications of his character sallallahu wasallam so that is a half right the last warning and also just to mention about cough as well that verse 15 many of the scholars say refers tobacco the Allahu tada and who had to either better or should they who were better albarino Seneca Robbie xerneas ash Quran aromatic allottee and I'm sure I know you I know add one I'm gonna slightly huntable law was the head if you the reality and he
took to it Aiko in the midst of I mean, this is a man who reaches 33 years old and then reaches 40 and when he sees that his entire family embraces Islam, he thinks Allah subhanaw taala for that, and asks Allah subhanaw taala that continued to be the case with his offspring as well. And the scholars mentioned that no person other than uncle Beckett will be alive until had everyone in his family eventually embrace this lump sum how long his parents, his spouses, children, siblings are not siblings rather but the generational part of this right everyone in his family embrace this lump sum how Allah and so it will bucket will be allow showing that gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala for
that, and reaffirming his submission. So back to the Prophet slice of them and what happened with him. This was the last warning and a lot comparing the person in Medina, the rabbi in Medina to the people in Mecca who knew the Prophet slice of them, and then you get to Surah Mohammed and how does it end? Her and Tom How old are two they're only 24 v Sabina laughs I mean come on. Yep, hello, woman Yup, for in the way up Hello. Enough. See, Allah Hello the new one and two one for call out what in teta? Well, no yesterday Coleman later come from Malaya corner. I'm tharla calm. Allah is talking about when the prophets I some calls on people to spend. And he says some of you hold back
you're stingy. And whoever does that is being stingy with himself. You're not harming Allah but you're harming himself because a loss of contact is sufficient and you are in need of him. And Allah says if you turn away he will replace you with a better people and they will not be like you. And they're in about mentioned the greatest step done. The greatest switching that ever took place was the people of Mecca for the people of Medina. Right that Allah switched out they could have given the Prophet slice on the honor he deserved. And they could have hosted him the way the unsought who were strangers to him slice of them took him in and hosted him but Allah, instead honor the unsought
due to their honoring of the Prophet slice of them. Then we get to sort of Fattah where once they're in Medina, the Mahajan, the unsub. And now they're making their way back to Mecca. And they were sad and depressed as I saw the yellow line who says at the Treaty of her they be because they're being prevented from doing Amara and going to the house of Allah subhana wa Tada. And Allah revealed the verse enough attention I like if at hand Rubina that verily We have revealed to you, or rarely we have open for you a great opening. And the prophets lie. Some said that this verse is more beloved to me, than the world than all that is in it Subhanallah because this verse was the promise of the
return. And once the treaty was signed in the sixth year after his draw, of here they be that gave Islam a chance to spread through its data, right, because it wasn't suffering from the persecution and immediately 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of people converted to Islam. And so that was the great fat to have the hearts of the people the conquest of the hearts of the people. But then, of course, the conquest of Mecca once the Meccans violated the treaty and the Prophet slice alum, went into Mecca and open Mecca without violating the ethics of Islam sallallahu it he was on them. So that was that came as a result of that enough attention and effort and Rubina and of course, there were some
who did not like the Prophet slice lm accepting some of the terms of her they be they couldn't see the vision of the Prophet slice alum except for who I will Becca will be a lot of time, right. So even Amaro the allot of time and who was upset at the compromises being made and who they be ideally a lot of time who was upset at the compromises being made in the treaty, but apobec it all the time who saw things the way the prophets lysozyme saw things and Indeed Allah subhana wa tada brought about incredible openings as a result of an era of peace, a short era of peace that led to many people embracing the way of the Prophet slice Allah certainly could do that. And how do we tie into
that law of total Pharaoh astrological focus ultra Natal for swatter calm Do not raise your voices and that also allow when you are with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do not prefer your opinion to the opinion of the prophets lie Selim. Do not disobey the prophets lie some of them some How about this has a specific
Meaning and then a broader you know, warning for us and the lesson for us. It refers to thaba typical case or the A lot of times animal who calls out to the prophets I seldom, and he was the chief of the tribe calls out to the Prophet sly some late at night from outside of his home and Allah subhanaw taala giving a lesson to the to the Muslims to have added with the messenger slice on to have manners with the Prophet slice Allah. And you can imagine when this came down third that while the Allahu anhu saw this as a condemnation, right I Allah revealed quarter on about me condemning me. So he hid from the profit slice on them, or, you know, withdrew himself not went into
hiding but withdrew himself. And some of us have a sense of the profit slice and when he asked about the fab bits, where is where has he been? They said the oddest little lot he has withdrawn himself. He's gone into a depression he said, Surely I am from the people of Hellfire, and the profit slice on them said, rather go to him and tell him in Mecca less them and add in now that you are not from the people of Hellfire wood, I can recommend an agenda but rather you are from the people of Geneva. So you are from the people's paradise, there was redemption, even though there was a an admonishment, certainly to the society as a whole. Some of the scholars also mentioned above Beckett
and almost all the Allahumma Yes, the greatest two companions getting into an argument in the presence of the Prophet slice on them. And their voices were raised. And after this verse was revealed a role model the Allah who I knew had a booming voice was so shy, that he would speak so low in you know, silently in the presence of the Prophet slicin that you'd have to ask him to repeat his words multiple times, despite the depth of his voice. Finally, I'll just mention, no, you'll play or compete a theorem in an umbrella and it took him a while no more than a few come rasulillah know that the Messenger of Allah is amongst you. And if he followed you in many of your affairs,
then that would have been to your destruction that would have been bad for you. And this is referring to a specific incident in the Sierra where the prophets lie, some took the time to carefully verify the news of the people so that war was not waged against them. But it also applies to her they be it also applies to the people of Mecca, it applies to the hids it applies to the Battle of ochre. It applies to all of these different contexts that we have covered that following the prophets like some as your success to disobey Him is your failure. And I have to mention some how the verse about diversity that we recite always in the haluk na komenda Quran will answer or not
come sure oben walkabout Lolita Allah for old people we have made you from male and female, and nations and tribes so that you may get to know one another. And verily, the most noble of you in comic Amanda light as often the most noble of you on the sight of Allah is the most pious and this verse was revealed, according to many of the scholars after Bilawal the Allahu taala, and who stood in Makkah, and gave the alarm on the Kava, and some of the people did not like Villa habashi, the Abba senior standing on the Kaaba and giving the event and Allah subhanho wa Taala, affirming the nobility of billaudot, the Allahu taala and affirming that piety is the only marker for nobility not
the false standards that we have put in the society which the prophets lie some came to abolish. So inshallah tada with that, I will pause I will invite our beloved chef Modi, if you'd like to share anything and shall then we'll move on to our beloved chef,
I really liked how you connected the whole us together from Sora to Lakoff to sort of interact.
And this actually reminds me of one of the great scholars and Bokhari, he has a book on
IoT or sewer, in which he speaks about the sequence of the frog that sort of is not isolated from the previous surah. And the upcoming Surah
pseudocolor is the last hurrah was
sitting in our car to see it having a car to the robot in 2013.
So you see that when I approach the other having the family of having the swords that have been emerging myself being in a beautiful garden, and I pick all the, you know, the beautiful flowers, it's a metaphor of you know, the beautiful topics that we find in solitude and harmony. Another thing that really captured my, my attention as reflected on sort of habit and sort of interesting is how the murky state is leading to the middle stage. And how the profits of allow it was set up is the center in sort of the Mohammedan sort of effect and also in sort of
basically, obeying the Prophet sallallahu Sallam following his footsteps, following his leadership is what gives us
the strength and the man that we desire to
Hmm. So we see for example, when Allah subhana wa tada sees
in the Twilio in the Treaty of the year, we see that and you alluded to this actually, the companions were not happy with the agreement. But Allah Subhana Allah praises them. By saying one simple rule can limit taqwa. And this is the therapy of the prophets of alarm, simply, you know the ratio, they came up with a lot of demands, and they wanted to tell the Prophet we don't recognize you as a messenger of Allah, the prophecies of grace that and then they say, okay, we bring another condition and then the promise of medicine accepted. But the components like
many other components, they didn't want to become acquiescing to the demands of believers. But the promise of biosimilars tended to be patient, and allies praising the followers of the progress of their characters and their flock. At that moment, they were not showing their ego, their pride, but they were following the top of US economy without a massive,
heavy, heavy get into India. So the disbelievers they were showing their pride, their tribalism, their ego, their arrogance, but the believers they were very humble, and almost 100 animated stick to the word of taqwa. And Allah says Ricardo How can we how deserving to be the people of taqwa. So that is one question that I wanted to share
with teachers in the
German beautiful uniforms from aka chef mommy publishing
COMM The line over I mean, we're still alone or send them about it, and then it'd be in line earning Iwasaki educating them about all of these illustrious individuals that are mentioned from the Sahaba Guan Allahu Allah him, we love them, and we love them because of their struggle. We love of what they did for us and how they were people that exemplified the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they were the best of it. And seeing the legacy that the prophet SAW love while he was sending left, what I want to touch on, is verse number 50. In the chapter that yet we're lost, we kind of went to Allah is addressing the promise that Allahu Allah was sending by giving him some
techniques, or telling him certain things to say to the people in regards to His Lordship and his authority. As we talked about before, the Lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Exalted is the one that has control over all things and all affairs. And with that control, he has predestination he knows what was what isn't what will be, with that knowledge that we have, it demands from us something ultimately, it demands from us to devote our utmost worship or our worship, to Allah subhanho wa Taala, where worship is not devoted or directed to anyone or anything else. And that is, when one understands that and implements that to the best of their ability, that spiritual
connection and love and honor and respect and fear at the same time simultaneously, get stronger and that kind of relationship can only be with Allah subhanho wa God so Allah subhana wa tada
when speaking about
the, the, the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala, he says in the chapter that yet when he speaks about the creation, and what he does, he gives the promise or some something to say to the people to all of us, and actually, in particular to the people that were not embracing the faith of Islam, he says was after he was a man of na nahi Aden, but in that and we'll see him he says in the sky, the heavens that we created with our strength that we've created and built with our strength and barely be expanded that we can expand it well the first half of that man man he doing and the other he talks about the skies and the heavens and then he talks about the the earth forget man man he doing
that the nettement and it's a blessing place and a blessing resting a blessing place to rest. Women coolie Shea in Holocron so Janie La La Quinta Corona and from everything we have created in Paris, perhaps you will be mindful of these things. So Lars is giving you a snippet of some of his creation but so Panama he talks about the sky and then the earth and then the objects on the earth. Everything has created xo Jane has a partner, perhaps you will be those that reflect when you reflect what you should what should you do after that fulfill a rule Illallah fulfill a rule either.
Even Okay, Miss Josie Rahim Allah to Allah He talks about this in his book on resounded symbol kiya, a book that he wrote to him and his his contemporaries that lived in tabuk. And it was a letter that he wrote and Subhanallah you know, for me personally, this book when I embraced Islam, it changed my life. It really, this was what you know, gave me the understanding of the methodology of what is Quran and Sunnah and what that should mean to me. It strengthened my relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I hope it'll do the same for you all. It's called the letter to the people who have to book resell it to book here, he talks about the hedgerow
To Allah subhanho wa Taala and the hindrance of the messenger. What I want to capitalize on within these next couple of minutes is the hatred to Allah. And one portion of this hatred to Allah firstly speaks about how many times when we hear the word hedger, we're thinking of the province, a lot of cinema, the boubakeur from Mecca to Medina, the physical hero, but he talks about the history that is obligatory upon every single one of us because the hedgerow that they made may not be obligatory upon me right now in America or in different places in the world, it may not be obligatory, but the hedgerow that is the history of the unborn, that's what's obligatory upon every single Muslim. And
when they fulfill that obligation, the relationship strengthens. And that in that any act, that connection with a loss of kindness with data, it's a beautiful one, and as a scholar, say, when once get saved, that was mentioned on coffee Shea and how about men who woman, half Allah, how about a lady, whoever fears something runs away from it flees from it, but whoever fears Allah runs towards him. So when I lost my glasses for funeral Illallah and rush towards Allah, or you know, go unto him,
when seeing this image, I am talking about the hindrances that there is fleeing from and fleeing to, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say, in one of his two eyes, a llama in their obedience documents. So Hunter COVID, might be more emphatic, I mean, acousmatic what became minca Allah subhanho wa Taala I seek refuge in your pleasure, from your displeasure, if from your wrath and I seek your protection from your punishment and I seek refuge in You from you. How is this we're talking about from Allah, it means that what we talked about earlier that Allah is a Chanukah, logical moudaber. He is the Creator, the Sustainer and the controller of all affairs. When we
understand that Lord ship attributes, it demands from us to respond to that in a way that is befitting to us His creation, and to Allah as the Lord. So when we rush towards him from his characteristics, that He is the Creator, whatever happened to you, your job, whatever happened to you from your sickness, being sick, or whatever happened to you or other than you and that which they did not anticipate or want, we should know that Allah has predestined that the Why is not as important for us to know. But we should know and have certainty that it is man hickmott invaluable. It is with a profound, endless wisdom that we may never encounter. But what's most important is to
know and have certainty that it did not happen except with His permission. So how do we run from that to him is that we do not do anything that is displeasing with that reality that we have faced. So we run to him by seeking protection from him. So if we're sick, we you know, we're pleased with the lesson God's given us and we realized, as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, that any pain affliction that we face, the sins can be washed off from that pain that we face, even if it's a form that pricks the believer. So when we had that understanding of the of the sooner the promise of a lie, there was something and in the life of the Prophet sallallahu it was something like when his
son died on a Sunnah. And when he said that, really the I shed tears and the heart weeps, well, and who in let me use the rub. His own son died and he's holding him in his arms, and he's gasping, young boy. And then he says that this is happening to me. He acknowledges the sadness, but he doesn't allow that sadness to cause him to flee from a lot to something else. rather he flees to Allah. Well, men are only men who LMA are the ROB we don't say that except which pleases our Lord. So then fleeing from Allah to Allah subhana wa tada is fleeing to his [???]tier fleeing to what he has ordered what he is ordering we is prohibited and that fleeing to him continuously strengthens
the relationship. Those of us that have children, if we've scared them to a certain degree, where do they flee, they go back to you, they may go to another the other parent because to them, you're the one that they rely on. When it comes to Allah subhanho wa Tada. We flee from that which is displeasing to him, which is within his predestination, and his infinite knowledge and wisdom. We flee from that to fleeing to that which He is pleased with. So this is very, very important, that fleeing to Allah subhanho wa Taala is paramount. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says in Nila con, una de la movie that really I am from, it's a warner to you all, he is warning you. And
that's important for us to know the promise of the law. I know his son is here to just give us the message which is a form of houda to show the way but it's up to us to go the way he died to tofield that we choose this guidance and we use this guidance as a means of spiritual sustenance. And this is an aspect of it that fleeing from Allah to Allah and this is the true hyjal the hidden
of the heart in the middle claims upon like mentions when these two things fleeing from Allah to Allah is solid in the heart of the individual, then his heart or her heart, yep, up there only cut off and be undivided for loss of power with God. Their primary concern is a loss concern. Everything else is supplemental to that everything else has to coincide with that and if it does not, we are not concerned with it. We don't follow it and to a certain degree, we may avoid it and call others to avoid it. Or if it's with within the confines of the sheer We ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us of those that are steadfast on it. So many of us put out to make us have the mahadji Deen and
make us of those that always turn to Him spiritually and resort to him For verily with him his safety sukeena inside inshallah
I mean particle a future harville it's like a baja check my follow up
I think you're on
the team oh sorry how to I should do a lot more when you sign up in Russia on the sea then I want to be here. Ramadan herbivore sudo. inshallah, tada in this Quran 3430. My word inshallah today's to bring to your attention. Some of my reflections in Surah
Surah Surah Surah 49. In the Quran, it has a team is and Allah Subhana. Allah is calling the believers five times in the surah. Yeah, you have been armory begins with this call. Yeah, Nina Avenue. Or you have the Eman University, please only allow that when you read the Quran, either you're part of the general audience, you are not all people. So listen to that message. And sometimes you're part of that specific audience like Nina Armani. This surah has many names, one of the names of the swords and to gerat, which pertains to the houses of the province of Madison. He sort of talks about the edit and the etiquettes that we should approach when we're talking to the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And what we can learn from the surah is that the promise allowed Islam his life was an open book that he had, his persona was was public, all the Sahaba the companions, they had access to the province of Madison, they could visit the province of Manitoba any time. And some of the Bedouins who didn't have the Adam with the province of Madison, and they started misusing that opportunity. So loss of habitat reveal disorder, especially the idea in the livina unit Do you want to give those who are approaching the progress of not Islam, some guidelines and some advocates in recording the progress on that level.
So when we look into the surah, we see that Allah Subhana, Allah is talking to the believers, and this is the Medina stage, remember sort of
alluded to, it's a murky stage, the province of Milan if someone was conveying the message of tawheed, but there was not a Muslim community, the Islamic or the Muslim community started in Medina. And we see that all the adamant ethics and law that every Muslim community should demonstrate. We find that in Surah infinity, right and Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us in this surah the basis of the foundations of the Muslim community that if we follow this, we would have the unity that we desire, and also would have the unity and the cohesion among ourselves. So the first thing Allah Subhana Allah is teaching us as a community as believers is Johan Medina among
all the levels, do not put yourself ahead of Allah and His messenger. This I encapsulates your other new etiquette with Allah subhanho wa Taala, that you must understand your limits before you know, so that you don't make Halla Hara Haram. Halawa Allah Subhana Allah Allah made it hard for you. You always waited the ruling of Allah subhana wa Tada. That means that every time you desire something, you want to do something, wait for the ruling of a massive panel to Allah. So that is the first item that Allah is teaching us. Make sure that your sources and your foundation is the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet.
The second I also we see that Allah is telling the believers, do not raise your voice, only the voice of the Prophet somebody said that. We know that in the time of the Prophet. It's very understandable that Allah is telling the Prophet the companions Do not raise your voice physically in the presence of the Prophet. But how come we apply this ayah in our time in America Rahim Allah and many of his columns they say that when you read a Hadith of the province of Madison when a statement from the profit reached you, you have to take do not see that we live in 21st century they live
hundreds of years
years ago and we are not in the same time on the same location. Not say that every time you receive a heartbeat from the province of Madison, he tried to understand in your own context and he tried to apply. That is the meaning of Do not raise your voice over the voice of the movie. We also see that in the sewer, Allah subhanaw taala is talking to the deliveries that Yeah, you have Medina Avenue, Indiana confer settlement of the indefensible here, no unbelievers, if any information comes to you do not just take it. And you have to verify, you have to investigate, you have to go to the bottom line of that story or that information or that news, and some annaleigh in the age of technology and
social media. In an age we receive every single day, so many informations, this is very relevant to our date, Allah teach us, if you as a believer, you receive a news. Don't just accept it.
You have to verify you have to look if this is authentic, or if it's fabricated. If you don't do that, and you share everything you hear in the social media, or you read in the magazines, then but ultrasafe will come and be the harder you may be blaming or judging people that are innocent, and then afterwards you may become regretful of what you have done. At the same time in the surah Allah Subhana. Allah is teaching us this quantity of Eman in the middle of this media at this call of Yanina, Yanina Amman we see a beautiful idea in the middle of this surah but Allah Subhana Allah says
when I came to LA have a liquid email it was a you know who
it is Allah who made the Eman
pleasing to you have a common demon llama demon, something, something that is near and dear to your heart, have the iniquity that was the yellow if you could have acknowledged Allah who beautified the Eman in your heart. So which means that is our demand. If you want to increase our email and we want our demand to increase and to be in touch, then that comes only through media and through submission to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah wa Koroma in a call.
And because when you taste the sweetness of email, defiance and rebellion and disobedience becomes an pleasing to you. And that actually comes as a result of tasting the sweetness of the man will also see that the surah Allah subhanaw taala speaks to the believers, that if anything happens between them any conflict, they should reconcile any issue that they have
among each other, unless he's waiting five or 10 minutes for us, to bring them over us as a community. We're human beings, no one is perfect, it could be some issues. But Allah teach us in this IRT that if there is a problem, a conflict between the believers, then go seek out from solution for us a little bit over rectify between them.
And then in the same time, Allah subhanho wa Taala establishes the Brotherhood among the believers, that of course, the Muslim, the Muslim community, in Medina, they come from different places belong from Yemen, someone from, from families from Persia. So from the from, he was one of the Romans, and many other companions were from different places. They were all coming to Medina. And they said no.
And because of that email, we are brothers and sisters in the beam. And this is one of the foundations that the surah establishes that deliveries of others in them and
another thing we see in the surah is how Allah subhana wa that is talking to the believers that Yeah, you have Medina Avenue is more commonly called that if you brother or your sister is present with you, do not disrespect them, do not disparage them, treat them with respect. What I think is to be uncovered, and you know, call each other offensively. These are the rights of you, Your brother is consistent when they are present with you. How would if they're absent? We see the next aisle Yeah, you under steady book appear a minimum for believers avoid match assumption. And then we see that the prohibition of backbiting and when your brother is absent or your sister is absent, do not
do not base your judgment on assumptions. Do not follow the faults or the shortcomings of your brother or sister.
Why not one or two? The assessment? That's the one or two the assessor
so that's why the one of the things we find in Islam community they follow the sort of input right is that it's a community that is avoiding assumptions. It is a community that coverage
And conceals the faults and the shortcomings of others.
The last I will see in this ayah that begins with the Korea yohannes. In Japan, Allah Allah teaches that the Muslim community is a community that also understands the relationship between the human beings are large. Yes, there is a specific audience delivers, when it comes to the wider society. We know that in the heart of documentary,
Allah Subhana, Allah created us
from a single male and female, when you either consume or combine and Allah made us into different tribes, and nations liter out of the reason is not to despise or to discriminate each other. No, the reason we have this diversity is literal so that you may know each other in a comical way. And this is the crux of the of the battle in a comic meant
that the the most honorable in the sight of Allah is the one that has a tough part. So this is the only distinction that counts. So in the Muslim community, we love people who respect them, not because of how they look like not because of how they know their financial backgrounds, not because of their passport that they have no, we respect them, and we value them and we honor them based on their top bar. And this is the distinction that counts. It's not how you look like it's not your country. None of that your family name doesn't count. The only distinction that counts is the top one. I would like to conclude with the idea, which we find at the end of Surah 200. And this shows
that if you're a Muslim believer,
you should feel happy. And you should be proud that Allah subhanho wa Taala guiding you and directing you to the path of demon. Allah is corrupting something's conception something Bedouins had in the days of the prophets of medicine, and they came to him and saying that, oh, we were Muslims, thinking that, you know, by saying that we were Muslims as if they're doing a favor for the prophets of Allah. Allah says Yama, noona alikhan, as level, Yama, Luna alika, and as they count, they're then becoming listened as a favor for you. Tell them, Benny let them
tell them do not do not count this as a favor.
On the contrary, it is Allah yamu community man is a man's favor, that he has directed you to the part of the man in Khartoum side of him if you're telling the truth, if you're truthful, so this is a salty, amen. It is a sort of the talks about the Prophet sallallahu sallam. It is a sutra that talks about our Adam with about simpana with Allah and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. Basically as the Ramadan comes to an end, and we are in the masjid in the community we come together we established in a way, this is the month of re establishing that brotherhood and sisterhood and the Unity instant to reflect on certain interests. And this should be one of the songs that we
studied in every Ramadan is upon
us in Patna with added to make the Quran or the Aqua Rubina, the spring of our heart will also do in the light of our chest, but they have a woman a woman.
Zack along Hayden check, Molly, it's a pleasure to have you and Subhanallah it's it's that the things that you mentioned, there are so many connections, how we honor the Prophet slicin when he's amongst us, and how we honor the Prophet slicin once he's left us, then how we honor our brothers and sisters when they're amongst us and how we honor our brothers and sisters when they are not with us. And all of it comes back to as chef Abdullah mentioned making that hedgerow back to Allah and the messenger slice on them, putting along the messenger slice on above us and all of these affairs and directing our hearts to that. That was pantai bless you for the beautiful reflections. shake up
Do you have any any any further reflection, and I highly advise the communities to read chapter progettato
I turned it as a chronic chronic community. It's a very, very comprehensive sword in regards to how to deal with one another. Shut up during this.
You know, somehow I feel like certain codes rot. Like a basic reading of it. A basic reading of it would completely change the ethics of our community. You know, like like, you know, we find loopholes and we justify certain things we justify behaviors with one another. And even unfortunately, students of knowledge to live right will justify the worst of sort of on the worst of suspicion the worst of slander, the worst of gossip, the worst of all in the name of protecting the deen without applying the basic principles of sort of crypto.com
It's something that we hold ourselves to as a standard first, as people of knowledge in the 19. Tyler are people I'll put you two in that category, I'll exclude myself. Most points allow us to be of those who aspire to be people of knowledge and people who are, you know, trying to lead communities and then every single person, there isn't a single Muslim that can benefit from source code, right? Like no matter what your circumstances, what position you hold in the community, there isn't a single Muslim that can't completely transform their lives in accordance with certain hoogenraad. So it truly is the Surah Surah that gives us the foundations of all of our mannerisms
and character in our community. So I'm Zack, I'm located on Chapman lead. We hope to have you back in shell that time we look forward to and shall it's benefiting from you in the future as well. That will be sent along
