The Madinan Society: A Tafsir of Surat al-Ḥujurat Part 1/12
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on 15th April 2016 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)
After the Prophet and his companions emigrated to Medina, Allah revealed laws with which Muslims must abide by so that they may live together peacefully. This Surat serves as a prime example of such intricate laws that detail not just how people should behave with one another, but how they should speak and think about each other.
This lecture forms the first lesson in the commentary of Surat al-Ḥujurat (The Chambers), dealing with the etiquettes that should be observed before Rasulullah . There are events which lead to the revelation of these verses and Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq will expound upon the stories and various narrations which coincide with these verses. The respect and etiquette shown to Rasulullah during his life can still be applied today when studying his words. The consequences of a lack of respect are also highlighted in this talk.

Ibrahima in the middle Majeed, a la him about a goddamn
improvement komaba Tada la vida, the law in
respect to listeners,
we gather for the
the seed of the Holy Spirit.
Today insha Allah who begin the sort of known as sort of liberal jar,
it's in the 26th jers part of the holy book, out of the 30 parts.
It's in terms of sequence and order, it's the 49th surah of the Holy Quran. And but it was one of the latest sorts to be revealed, it's a sort of that was revealed in Medina,
at a very late stage. And according to some scholars, it's the
106, according to others 108
out of 114 to be revealed.
unlike some of the other sorts, which I've commented on before and which has which have various names, this sort of sort of number 49 sort of job is more or less only known as sort of language arts not known by other names,
which are our
means, rooms, apartments, chambers. And this is a reference to one of the verses, which we will cover later in this order, which speaks about a certain incident that took place. And in that context, Allah mentions and hood are the chambers, the apartments, the private quarters, the rooms, referring to the chambers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, where his family lived, and which were adjacent to his machine.
So the name of the sorta has taken from that
fourth verse of the surah, in which Allah says in the Lithuanian ad, when I come in what are
those who call out to you from behind the apartments from behind the chambers.
So the surah is named after that one word, in the fourth verse, sort of the sort of the inner chambers or quarter's apartments, and we'll learn more about that later. So let's begin this is the 49th, sort of the 164. In terms of Revelation. It's late money's revealed in Medina. And
it's more or less known only by this name, sort of genre, the chambers.
He only has 18 verses, so it's not that long a surah. Another important thing is that
this sort of sort of genre begins a section of the holy war,
which is more or less the final six of the Quran, which is known as El Mufasa.
fossen refers to that section of the origin which is preferred
and chosen by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well, to be repeatedly recited in the Salawat in the daily prayers. So of course, any part of the urn can be recited in any of the prayers, but it was the noble custom and tradition of the Messenger of Allah, Allah equals
seldom, and therefore his son to recite mainly the salts from the oma fossils section of the aura. So the longer an animal fossil, the fossil section itself is divided into three, you have the
long muscle section, which is the beginning sort of
you have the middle, or the intermediate muscle section. And then you have the asylum of a slow meaningly shorter sore at some of the animal fossils which come towards the end of the quarter. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to recite the shorter salts of the fossil section ie the final sixth or an in some of the prayers, the middle ones in others, and the longer ones no one has done before. So the longer fossil swords in the in some of the other prayers such as the Quran, fetcher and
and the Poseidon for swell, the shorter ones predominantly in Mughal Uppsala, and the middle intermediate fossils or it's, again predominantly in us and Asia. Of course, there were variations at times, but this was a steady pattern of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the law of the insula. So the whole animal fossils section which forms the more or less the final sixth of the Quran, which is the preferred section to be recited in all of the daily prayers, the beginning of that animal festival section, according to many scholars, if not most, is this sort of sort of genre.
So at least according to the Hanafi rule, Mr. The Shafi lemma and the molecule Emma, the beginning of the animal fossils section is this the sort of genre so this is another significant point relating to this sorta. So let me begin the first few words. And then in Sharla, while comments further about the
backdrop to the revelation of the main verses of the surah, as well as some of the themes of the surah and the period in which it was revealed.
So are all the we learn him in a sheath line of regimes? Man Rahim? laughs Panama Adana says by the name of Allah,
the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful?
Yeah, you're Latina and all that God the mania de la hora, Su de la Ilaha, Samir Addy
are believers of those who would have believed,
do not be forward, do not advance before Allah and His message.
And be wary of Allah.
Verily, Allah is all hearing all knowing.
That's just the beginning of this. Now, sort of the hijra being one of the longest sorts of
it contains a number of different topics and themes.
And like some of the shorter sorts that we've done from the 30th parts of the Quran, which more or less cover one theme, or were revealed in their entirety, sort of covers a number of different topics.
But mainly this sort of was revealed in the ninth year of Hitler.
within two years of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his departure from this world and meaning before and in the final two years of his life,
some of the themes of the sewer, our respect,
advocates of behavior of society
or guides, its followers,
to adopting the most appropriate behavior, manners
before the Creator, before the creation, before the representative of the creator of the messenger some of the law it was sent them towards one another
Lugg guides the believers through the source
towards justice, establishing justice, upholding justice, especially in one's dealings with others in one's thoughts and perceptions of others.
The Koran doesn't just tell us in the sore, to avoid conflict, he actually gives us the recipe to achieve,
to adopt certain measures to avoid certain things in order to prevent conflicts. And when conflicts and disagreements do arise, and how to tackle it, how to resolve it, how to be just
the whole speaks about
in terms of not advancing beyond one's position, knowing and recognizing one's limits boundaries and borders.
Never trespass, never overstepping the mark, when it comes to Allah, and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or one another.
Even about accepting and recognizing our boundaries and our limits when it comes to speech, when it comes to thoughts when it comes to judgment, when it comes to behavior.
On although I've used the word boundaries, borders, limits etiquettes modes of behavior.
This sort of
teaches us the true meaning of liberty and freedom.
Not the kind of freedom whereby a person's property is protected.
And the person's life is protected.
And the person's body is protected. But a person's dignity, their
their self worth, their emotion,
their inner being, these are not protected.
Right? It's not true liberty and freedom.
And 1400 years ago, a law is an assault on the law, it was
taught as the true meaning of liberty and dignity.
Whereby Allah and His Messenger some of the law, are seldom taught
that it's not just the blood
and the property and the belongings of an individual, that are sacrosanct and sacred, and that cannot be violated. But even his dignity,
even his self worth, even his emotions, even our perception of him, that perception is sacred. And therefore it should not be violate
this How about the law?
What taught these ideals,
these lofty characteristics, and they were actually instilled in their character. This is why we saw a society in Medina, around the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And by the time of his passing, which was unique,
and which should serve as a model
of conduct of behavior of social etiquettes of society.
companionship, concern, simply welfare, true social welfare,
true Liberty with dignity.
All of that was realized in Medina,
around the messenger Salalah it was and that's what this surah teaches.
inshallah we'll cover all of these different topics and themes as we move through the verses.
But before we begin today's section,
allow me to explain the backdrop to the revelation of the first few verses which are all entire although they appear to be separate.
It was the ninth year of law. And this was the year known as the year of delegations.
The year of delegations. The reason for this name is
that in the eighth year of hedra, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had conquered Mecca.
Now the most
controlled Medina, Makkah, the position of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was immensely powerful, he was now recognized throughout Arabia, if not as a profit, then at least as the preeminent individual, with
the most devoted followers.
And he was recognized as the lead.
Even if some did not accept him as a messenger of Allah.
Many of the Arabs, especially the Bedouin, were, wait to see what the outcome would be
in the struggle between Makkah and Medina.
And some of them went to the extent of saying that we shall line wait.
We won't oppose Mohammed,
nor will we side with him,
determine the fate of Arabia.
Mohammed is an imposter,
then we shall soon recognize it.
But if he is a true messenger, and if a law does give him victory, and grants him these grand achievements that he speaks of, and that his followers speak of, then we will recognize him as the Messenger of Allah, so many of them laneway and when Makkah was conquered, and now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given that position by the people of Arabia, many of them began arriving in Medina individually as well as in huge delegations. And this was in the ninth year of hitch
after the conquest of Makkah, so many delegations came from all over Arabia. So this was known as a year of delegations and waffled. One of the delegations that arrived in Medina in the ninth year of hedger was from the tribe have been with the mean, the mean was a huge try, and various representatives of the different claims of little demeaning, they arrived in Medina and according to some reports of approximately 7080 of them, they arrived as a delegation. And the purpose of many of these delegations was that, in fact, a perfect example would be the delegate the delegation from
After the conquest of Makkah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in the campaign of her name,
and he fought against some of the other tribes
in the Battle of her name, and after the Battle of her name, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam moved ahead to lay siege to the city of life.
They were unable to maintain the siege. And after approximately a month, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decided to end the siege and return to Medina.
When the prophets of Allah it was sudden returned to Medina.
Having failed to actually conquer the city of life,
within the year, in the ninth year of hedger, by itself, decided to join the prophets of Allah and Eagle send them and they sent a delegation.
So this was the year of delegations, one of the dead and how they would come is from the larger tribes a delegation would arrive to speak to the province some of the law writing most of them this delegation would contain the leading dignitaries and most powerful fitness, including poets and orators, and they would visit the messenger some of the law it was alum, speak to him, negotiates with him, embrace slam
themselves, and promised to take the religion back to their people, and apply all the rules including painters occur to the property of the law.
And this is how the delegations would come and represent the entire tribes. So the delegation
Buta mean. However, these were Arabs. These were Arab, sorry Bedouin, and many of them have not yet embraced Islam. So they would come in the year of delegations visit the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam discussed within negotiate with him. And many of them would embrace, and then they would return. So Buddha mean came, some of them were already Muslim. Very few of them though, the majority of the delegation of glutamine had not yet embraced Islam. But they came with that idea with that vision.
They arrived in Medina, and they came to the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in order to speak to him. At the same time, this delegation, although they were interested in Islam, there was also another reason they had been an incident in which some of their people had been captured.
And they wanted to discuss this with the messenger subtle alarm it was.
In any case, the delegation came of the mean.
And they arrived in the machine.
And they began, it was in the afternoon, province, a lot of it was resting at home in one of the chambers.
And the chambers, as I said, are were adjacent to the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was simpler
if we imagine this to be the people
on the eastern side.
So this is a bubbler and facing the people out to the left, where some of the chambers of the prophets of the law it was the very first chain
is known as the home of a woman woman in a Chateau de la hora.
And her home was split into two parts. So those of you who have been to the masjid have are the messengers of Allah Almighty Who was selling them.
And you see the green
And the area and owners are over profits and the line equals some of them says Nabina, bt, or members of the community are the agenda. But that area which is between my house and my member, my pulpit is a garden of the gardens of gentlemen.
So that those of us who've had an opportunity sits in the role that
To the left of that older, where the green meshes, that's where the chamber of the prophets of Allah Hi, Eagleson chambers begin. Now that was originally a wall. But he had a door.
And that door opened into the masjid. And that's where the prophets of Allah Islam would come from. And that door led into the outer Chamber of money in Chateau Viola and
so that was the first house the house of mini, Chateau de la.
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam arrived in Medina.
He was only married to wives, meaning he shouted the alarm on heart and soul the heart of the alarm. So only two homes were built First of all, and shadow the alarm or enhance and right next to her, so that'll be a lot.
But the one closest to the dibbler, as it stands now was that of a shadow of the alarm. So the door would open into the outer chamber of
the house of meaning a shadow of the alarm, this outer chamber, you could call it a living room
the chamber, the room.
It was very small,
I don't know the exact figures offhand at the moment, but approximately
by five and that was the outer chamber.
And the profits of the love it was some of them would sit there. And this wasn't where the profits of the love it was some of them would sleep at night. That outer chamber led to another inner chamber which again which was very small which is known as a bedroom
and these two just the outer chamber and the inner chamber
Were the private quarters of money in Chateau de la.
And then further, there was a house of fire the amount of the alarm, and again that contained an outer chamber and an inner chain.
Similarly, opposite the house have a shadow of the alarm of the lover and her towards the fibula was the house of money in half. So hold the alarm. And I'll tell you where that was situated.
It's no longer preserved.
From the very earliest days, there was a need to expand the machine and model the loved one expanded the machine of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam himself, expanded the machine in the seventh year of his job, and model the law and extended it, the law and extended it.
And then afterwards one of the omiya governors rulers.
He also extended the machine, but he was the first one. He wrote a letter to Governor Abdulaziz was the governor of Medina. And he told him to include the to demolish the chambers the genre of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and include them in the machine. So I'm going to grab the disease who was just a governor at the time, who himself later became a very pious ruler. At that time, who was just the governor, he obeyed. He had no choice but to obey the
decree of the ruler from Damascus. And he implemented the decree and the chambers were removed.
the narrator's say that we never saw honorable Abdul Aziz weep as much as he wept that
and some of the other leading roles, including the leader of the derby in Sweden, and will say yes,
he says that how we wish that these chambers would have remained exactly as they are, so that the new generation of Medina would grow up, and visitors would come to Medina and all of them the new generations, the future generations of Medina, and the future visitors from all over who arrived in Medina, they come, and they could see how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam lived, how simple his dwellings were, how small his chambers were. So by viewing the homes, and the lifestyle of the sort of laughs and the love it was in them, they would also be able to detach themselves from the dunya knowing how simply the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lived, even though a lot of place
the treasures of the world its history.
These were the words of Satan will say, yeah, so it was a sad day, but most of the chambers were removed.
Now, today, if when we stand in front of the grave of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and offer our salons and our greetings, exactly at that spot, was the house of hopsital Viola directly in front of me in a shadow the alarm has house. So between the home of the shadow of the alarm and I remember that was a wall of the machine, the front parts where the office salon is actually an extension.
So the mystery of the front of the machine ended where that old bar was
parallel or in line with the home of a shadow the alarm her
in front of her house, there was actually a gully a small pathway. And then after the pathway directly opposite was the home of have saddled the alarm on her home also contained an outer chamber and an inner chamber. And that home was obviously demolished and that is exactly where we stand in front of the grave of a sort of muscle alarm, I think was off our salon. So realize that when you are standing there, that is the home of Aristotle the law, that is actually a spot where the messenger sallallahu alayhi, wasallam. lived, slept, spent his night prayed.
So the these are just some of the chambers.
So the prophets of the love it was some of them was resting in the afternoon in one of the chambers. We don't know which one but he was he was resting.
And he was having a siesta. Now these betterman of the Buddha mean, this delegation they came and they did what the Arab delegations would do, they used to have a custom and a tradition. So what was the customer these Bedouin Arabs, they would arrive in a large party if they were ever visiting a ruler or a king or another tribal leader.
And then they would, as I said earlier, they would have in their delegation, poets and orators.
So they would come, they would meet greet, then they would have what we call them or fast animal shahara. Mufasa means mutual boasting.
So the an orator would stem from one of the tribes and extol the virtues of his tribe, we are like this, we are like that. And what would their virtues be? They used to speak about war battles, spears, arrows, why women drink,
goats, camels, horses. Now we mean and then the other tribe would speak as well. We own so many camels, these are our horses and steeds. This is how fast they are in racing. This is how we charge and our speeds and warfare. This is how brave we are. And again they speak about bows, arrows, spears and swords.
Now we may find this very strange, but we don't change this is human nature. And today we do exactly the same we have these rap songs where all they speak about our drugs, wine, women, cars, rides, Glocks, guns. And that's all they speak about. There's no difference whatsoever. This is the wrap off today, the poetry and that was wrapped in the poetry of that day. And as I've explained before, I'm delighted, no muss, although the alarm and we are accustomed to hearing poetry in English and in order to and in modern Arabic has been very slow.
But originally it wasn't slow. That's why I'm delighted when was the last time I heard someone, someone told him that we recite the or earn this quickly, and we complete it in this way. So I'm delighted and I must rule that all the alarms that have been shared. Now, he says that is the wrapping of the wrapping of poetry.
Why we can only understand that his words when we realize that the Arabs the way they would originally recite poetry is wrapped by spitting verses in fact, the prophets Allah Allah Abdullah Massoud himself relates at the province of the law it was someone would say all the below him in a sheep line of regime
mean Hamza, he when he when a thing
that I seek refuge and protection Allah from the a cursed and rejected devil.
I seek refuge in Him
Minh Hamza, he one of the one of the from his touch, which is madness.
from his inflating which has pride, when nothing and from his spitting.
So I see the refuge of I seek refuge in Allah and His protection from the splitting of the occurs devil. So what was the spitting? Abdullah remember, Massoud said poach.
So they used to split versus just like we split versus today that was the original poetry.
So the Arabs, they would split poetry very rapidly. That was their wrap of the day, and this is all they would speak about. warfare. armory weapon rides these horses.
And then they would have orators and the orators would stand up and boast of their virtues and extol their virtues and the poet's would speak.
So this was a tradition. So the Buddha mean when they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being unrefined Bedouin, remember, most of them weren't Muslim at that time. They arrived in the masjid and it was afternoon time the profits and the love it was there was asleep.
They shouted out all of them in unison very loudly. began shouting Yeah, Muhammad Ali, now Mohammed come out. So Mohammed come out to us, come out says
and then the leader began saying that our praising isn't ornaments.
And our disparaging
and our satire is a debasing and humiliation What do you meant is that come out as we wish to do move on with you I boast we want to boast we want to hear your posts. And we want we want to recite poetry to you. We want to hear your poetry and our poems
True. When we praise someone,
then that is true praise but if we satirize someone, then they will be humiliated. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arose from his sleep he was disturbed by them. And then he came out. And he said to them that do not say that you're praising his praise indeed. And your satirizing his humiliation, indeed, that only belongs to Allah.
this was the mean. Eventually the they sat with the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they spoke to him. Many of them then embraced Islam.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then decided to send them back and he had to appoint one of them as a leader over them.
This is why I said the story the verses are all in twine. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wished to appoint a leader over the same delegation of glutamine one of them he consulted with Buchan and Amato, the alarm.
The alarm when Hamas said, or messenger of Allah, appoint this person as their lead.
So when one of the alarm said no Yasuda law appoint that person as your lead.
When that happened, a while back or the alarm being a human being, he sets the alarm. You did not recommend anyone else except to oppose
the alarm said no, no. I did not seek to oppose you.
Abubakar, the alarm said Yes, you did a lot of the alarms and I didn't. And they began arguing with each other. In their arguments, they both raise their voices. Over and above the vote. They both raise their voices, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was silent.
So that's another incident that took place.
last panel with Allah revealed these verses. And this order and the beginning of the saga deals with this whole
incident of the delegation of the mean their arrival, their manner of addressing the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the appointment of one of the leaders forbidden to mean and Abu Bakr and Omar Abdullah and Hamas conflicting suggestions and their eventual arguing and raising their voices in the presence of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That's the background to the revelation of the beginning versus of sort of different art. So lots panel one with Anna says, Yeah, you're Latina and learn to put them obeying the law, what he what the law, in the law has some
of those who have believed
Do not be forward
in the Presence of Allah
and His Messenger sallallahu
do not advance before Allah and His Messenger, Allah honey
and be wary of Allah. Very alized all hearing all knowing.
Remember, although these verses were revealed that
they apply to us,
the teach the tickets are still for us.
And as I'm delighted with them as well, that'll be allowing us to say
whenever you hear the words Yeah, you're living in Amman, oh those who have believed.
Then you be the one who is being directly addressed. Think of yourself as being directly spoken to by Allah.
So what this first verse tells us
are believers do not be forward in the presence of the messenger before learn in his met before His Messenger
do not advance and a very good way of understanding the words do not before were do not advance before the messenger before Allah is Yeah, your arm and all that but they knew a lot about the enforcer Campania de la, una. Oh believers, do not place yourselves before learn his message.
Do not place yourselves before law has messenger. And that's in everything.
How about the law?
They were so conscious of this late.
But they would not fast unless the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. They saw the prophets of the law it was send them fast.
They would not
Do things unless they saw the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do those things.
The morning is do not place your cells before lions messenger in anything, in action in Word indeed in thought in judgment and decision even in formulating and holding opinion.
Insane Abdullah in our bus of the a lot man whom I used to say, the meaning of this verse is that do not say anything which contradicts the book of Allah and the Sunnah of his messengers of the
prophets of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the final year sent more other than the gibble the alarm to Yemen
as a guide as a judge as a teach.
So when he was bidding him farewell, since he was sending him as a teacher, as a guide as a judge.
As a governor,
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him,
how will you judge how will you rule? How will you judge
someone other than the dribble of the law said
that I will judge by the book of Allah.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and if you do not find anything in the book of Allah, he said, I will judge by the sin of His Messenger sallallahu wasallam.
Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If you do not find anything in the sun,
then why other than the Gibraltar the Allahu anhu said, then
exert myself in arriving at some understanding. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, lightly and lovingly thumped him on his chest, and said, What all praise be to that Allah, who has guided and given the right ability and enablement to the messenger of the messenger.
That was the right course of action, judged by the book of Allah, then by the son of his messenger, salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and only then only then to resort to one's own judgement, thought and understanding. But however, that was true for the Sahaba of the law.
That was true for more of the majority of the alarm. But for us,
and for all that ruler, man who came after the Sahaba of the law,
they would actually say that we judge by the book of Allah, and then the son of his messenger, and then by the understanding of the Sahaba of the library,
because our understanding, cannot match that our opinions cannot rival theirs. So the orlimar of Islam all say that after the book of Allah Hansen of His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, even before we resort to our own judgments, and our own rationalization, we refer to the authority and the judgments and the understanding of the collection of this habit of the law,
the collective companions.
So, this is one of the meanings of Do not place yourselves before Allah and His Messenger some of the law it was just as more other than the general of the allowance and
he wouldn't resort to his own opinion, even though the messenger sallallahu it was something you sent him as a judge, but rather begin with the book of alarm than the son of his messengers, a llama, honey or something. In everything, whether it's in judgments and opinions in deeds and action, in choices, do not place yourselves before law, and before his messengers, the law and he was, and that's a stark warning and a reminder at the very beginning of the sore. Oh, those who have believed, if you truly believe, if you truly believe, then do not pace yourselves before Allah and His Messenger, just as a lot Saison another verse of the Quran will in quantum Allah, say, if you
love law, people then claim to love law at the time of the messenger some of the law equals we claim to love law. So Allah subhanho wa Taala issued a challenge then
that say to them or messenger of Allah, in quantum Allah, if you love Allah for the biriyani then follow me. For following the messenger is to follow Allah to obey the messenger is to obey Allah, to disobey the messenger is to disobey
and approve of one's claim of love for Allah is to follow and obey the messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So if you truly love Allah, if you truly believe in Allah are believers, do not place yourselves before Allah is
messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that's not some an idle message. It's not a light message because a light mmediately thereafter sees what the law and be wary of
all in the law Samir merredin law is all hearing all knowing law doesn't just hear your words but Allah knows and is fully aware and cognizant of your innermost thoughts and deepest feed.
So be sincere, be loyal in your obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala and do not place yourselves before LAN is messengers a lot.
This is an introduction following the introduction, what is the last panel what their analyses say?
Yeah, you had levina again, oh believers, all those who have believed lateral federal a swath of folk assaulting nibi
Do not raise your voices over the voice of the message.

And that the American wasn't allowed to shut on lest your deeds perish and become null and void.
And you don't even realize
this is a reference to abubaker normal the law.
As I said the delegation wouldn't mean when the profits of the law equals the wish to appoint one of them as leader over them. he consulted a worker on the Alabama who his two chief companions of worker of the law firm I would normally sit to his right and the alarm would normally sit to his left and then the leading Mahajan would sit in front and then the answer.
So, the alarm or Nkrumah suggested one person or the alarm and suggested another lead from beneath the mean.
A worker of the alarm said to him, you did not choose or suggest this other lead person to be a leader except to oppose me. And one of the alarm protested his innocence. And he said No, I did not. They both raise their voices. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was silent. One of the things about the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that he was very modest, extremely bashful, he wouldn't react. He would not react LA.
He was extremely soft.
And he was very sensed, soft.
humble, emotional. People are generally extremely sensed. They go hand in hand. It's the rough, tough, hardened, supposedly, with a hard shell, who are incensed.
So if anyone People often say
when we hear a bad word, when we hear criticism,
when we hear disparaging talk,
when we hear
we feel the pain. We feel the sorrow, the sadness, it shows on our face, with our hearts, on our sleeves on our faces.
And then sometimes other people they add insult to injury, they offenders, they insult us,
they ruined us. And then immediately thereafter they say oh, you being extremely sensitive.
rubbing salt into the womb
is this freedom is this liberty,
where people aren't at liberty to say what they want about others, to offend them to hurt them to injure their feelings to learn their innermost emotions to assail their minds
when someone hits you, on the body
sometimes depending on how resilient one's body is, sometimes the pain subsides within a few short moments to be forgotten.
The most that happens afterwards is discomfort.
But when someone hurled arrows of abuse,
they may not touch the body.
assail the man,
the engine and our thoughts, our mentality.
Our very inner core, our being our emotions, our ego, our very heart, and that pain lives on. And it's damaging. It's extremely damaging. Allah is a source of the law while he was lobbying our Creator, and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being His representative. They taught us 14 centuries ago, those truths and those realities are only beginning to be explored.
it's not just physical abuse, which is harmful.
emotional abuse needs to be recognized, verbal abuse needs to be recognized, mental abuse needs to be recognized. And in fact, our psychologists are discovering emotional, verbal, mental abuse is far more dangerous, far more devastating, far more harmful, far more insidious and surreptitious than physical abuse, and its effects are far more lasting.
They can last a lifetime.
And it's not just about individuals. What about the collective verbal, emotional and mental abuse that we receive?
Is that liberty is that freedom? Is that dignity. This is why I said the soul of teachers is Liberty with dignity. Recognizing that not only are we to regard other people's belongings, lives, bodies
are sacred. We are all sorts of regard their thoughts, their emotions, their feelings, their minds,
their egos and their spirits to be inviolable, to be sacred, to be sacrosanct.
To be beyond our limits and boundaries. Allah is a source of love, it also taught us that so going back to the messenger, sallAllahu, alayhi wa saying about people being sensitive, when we are hurt,
and if someone tells us you being sensitive, if you can remind them, if it's only going to exacerbate the problem, just remind yourself
that it's going to aggravate the situation then, but just remind yourself that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sensitive who was extremely racist.
Although I told him again and again in the corner and we know
the zilliqa, Livia cool we know that that what they say grieves you, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could have said, I am the messenger of Allah. What they say means nothing to me. He could have done that. He was soft, extremely soft, bashful, modest, full of higher as a result of which he was sentenced the Quraysh and his enemies would abuse him and reject Him. And that would actually breathe and hurt the messengers and the law highly.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala sought to reassure him,
Allah reassured His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in fact he was a human being. And then what we need Khadija How will the Allah and how reassured him?
So we are all in need of reassurance that's human nature, we are all sensitive.
But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was extremely gentle,
full of bashfulness and modesty, the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu say of him and listen to their description, that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was more bashful, modest and shy than a virgin behind her veil.
So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would hardly ever react. And it was always Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah who answered on his behalf always, he would never say regardless of the situation,
the messengers alarm it himself would be seated. Sometimes even at home.
The alarm would come and sit, but it was home or whether it was outside. Remember, I was speaking about the chambers. So at the Chateau de la had an outer chamber that was adjacent to the to the machine.
When we read in the heavy that people visited the house of shuttle the alarm how what's meant is that outer chamber
The kind of living
it rarely means the inner chamber, which was actually covered
where the profits of the law it was not spent in the night and where they would sleep. So the sleeping quarters were different to the
outer chamber, but they were very small. So whenever we hear that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was visited by people in any one of the homes, it normally means the outer chamber.
And that's exactly when we hear the Hadith that during Attica, half the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be in the masjid. But a woman would mean a shadow the Allahu anhu would comb his hair. So how would that happen? Well, if you imagine they're older, and that green mesh.
There, there was a door there. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would lie in the machine leaning against the
doorstep, and his noble head would be inside the outer chamber. And that's where meaning an army shuttle the alarm would be combing his hair. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would sometimes receive visitors at home and most of the time it would be outside, people would come and sit and he needed to go. This habit of the alarm in their living eagerness, they would sit around and they wouldn't depart. Sometimes a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would motion to them leave, go. But in their eagerness, he wouldn't be forceful, he wouldn't be persistent. So they will remain seated in the hope Hall, remaining in his blessed company.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his modesty in his shyness, bashfulness he wouldn't repeat, he wouldn't tell them to go he wouldn't persist, nor would he grind and go himself. He would remain seated.
So it took Allah subhanho wa Taala to tell them
that we that Elan Xu Zhu fun shows you a very loving Latina woman Kuma Latino prima donna jobs, that when it's set to rise, rise and go.
So prophets Allah love it wa sallam wouldn't say anything. In the fifth year of his life when he got married to Zane of interjection of the Allah and her. This is how bashful he was. He invited the Sahaba out of the alarm for a post wedding meal, the walima
they actually came to the home, and at an article the alarm was the heart and the attendance of the messengers and the law. It was one of them. So he was helping in distributing the food. There wasn't much just very little, that his mother almost blamed the alarm had sent.
Now this How about the alarm after eating, they remain behind they started conversing and speaking amongst themselves.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would come and see that they all seated and he'd go back. He wanted them to leave. This was his wedding night. He wants to privacy. This How about the alarm became engrossed in their conversation, and they remain behind seating after food. So they wouldn't go in the province of the lobbies and would come draw the curtain. See them there, go back. It send an alarm, he'd come back himself, he'd look, but he wouldn't tell them even once go
as a result of this last panel with data reveal the vs.

And I'll explain that but when you are called.
Then enter further into when you have eaten from the shuttle then disperse will understand the scene and had these do not linger.
Enjoying one another's conversation. Verily this would hurt and inconvenience the messenger
He may come. But he was too bashful off. He was too shy of you love what is the human. And Allah does not shy away from the truth. So he took a loss of Hannibal with that, to mention to the Sahaba of the alarm.
There are so many incidents throughout the quarter.
And during the life of the messengers, the larvae somewhere he wouldn't say anything, even with his wives, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was extremely bashful even when it came to his wives very soft. So if anyone towards a husband saying you're too soft,
there's this macho attitude amongst men, that it's always projection. It's always projection. Every man likes to tell another man how he should behave, often simply because that's how he wants to behave himself, but he can't.
And that is very true.
You find people advising their friends, sometimes it's women, sometimes it's men.
So the macho man will tell his friend.
And I do not lie. I've actually, I know this for a fact.
I deal with so many cases, and there have been instances where macho men tell their friends stuff, it'll lie, your wife said that to you divorce, will likely divorce her.
Is that how she treats you divorce.
So he's very forward in telling his friend and giving Mexico advice that you should never stand for that divorce her. And all the other poor woman has done has said a few words or argued with is better her husband, this guy's friend. But he himself
is not just receiving words of abuse is actually receiving a few slaps from his wife at home.
So and yet, so the macho man when he gives advice, often I'm not saying it's always the case, but it's often a projection of what he would like to do himself. Because
advice is very cheap. And this is why the ruler, man say do not go to anyone, for advice mean, do not just go to anybody for advice. Go to those who have knowledge, who have experience or wisdom, who have
who have your best welfare and interests at heart at heart, who are not broken individuals themselves, who are grounded, who are emotionally and mentally healthy,
who don't have their own issues. Everyone has issues, but not to that degree.
Go to such people.
Many of us are broken, and we turn to one another for advice. And we receive broken advice that breaks our lives and our families.
Be careful of who you go to advice is cheap.
To the extent and people have reported this to me that you find friends talking to one another, whether it's men or women. And the man says no, my wife's doing this. My wife's doing that. This is how she treats me this is what she says that's what she does.
And the friends say,
I would never take that you shouldn't take that. divorce her.
How simple is it one word divorce. Right where we going now then?
Where should we go? Now? What about tomorrow evening, you come in football tomorrow. So one leap from one to the other? divorce. You come in football tomorrow. It's advice cheap.
People offer this advice and many individuals, many individuals choose to act on the advice out of obligation. A man feels that sometimes women, my friends are advising me to do this. If I don't act on their advice, what will they all say?
How will I look? How would I appear?
I'll be less manly.
We're always worried about what people will say as we spend our lives worrying about what people will say. That's our greatest fear. In order to Nokia,
what will people say? Especially in our culture, what will people say? We spend our whole lives making decisions, making choices based on the fear of what other people will say. And you know what people will say at the end of it, nothing when we die or that they will say is in not in there who are in charge. That's what
that's all that wouldn't be sad. And it'd be in 1990 Leonardo 111 we'll get back to that.
advice is cheap.
only go to those who are healthy, well ground
who are emotionally healthy, who have knowledge who have wisdom, who have the knowledge of a law is that a source of the law it who seldom who have age who have experience, those who are seasoned and weathered gold.
Even if you cannot find such people of piety and knowledge approach, those who are elderly, in your own families, those who have seen while well grounded, healthy, emotionally healthy, decent individuals, approach such people be extremely careful of who you approach for advice, especially in grave personal matters, such as marriage issues and marriage and divorce. Going back to the sort of loss of the law it was, I said he, even with his wives, it was extremely soft, very, very soft, bashful. He wouldn't even say much to his wives Allah subhanho wa Taala had to warm
the hole of pseudo
Allah says love begins with the words Yeah, are you gonna be Ulema to hungry mama Holla Holla De Lima bata swatch LA for overhang, but follow the law contain that a monokuma Lomonaco.
Allah says oh Prophet, why do you make her arm
that which Allah has made Hanafi?
seeking the pleasure of your work?
What does that verse show the busy metadata as well magic, even the Messenger of Allah being who he was, he went out of his way to please his wives,
to the extent
that he even decided to make haram upon himself that which Allah had made
just so that he could appease his wives, he could please.
And that was a messenger of Allah. He wouldn't say anything.
For their pleasure, for their satisfaction, for that in demons for their love. He went to the extent of making her arm upon himself that which Allah had made her love.
Allah says that the amount of data as well as
law for over a human life is most forgiving, Most Merciful. A law that says good follow the law will contain that a man or messenger of Allah, Allah has made obligatory upon you to unravel your oath
to declare it null and void, and to gradually go ahead and do what you said you would law command you to do. So the the lesson is, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wouldn't say anything to this, how about the lawn? He wouldn't say anything to individuals or groups. He wouldn't even say anything to his wives. That's how bashful modest humble he was. A lot always spoke for him. And here to see the Narmada Abubakar the alarm.
Even though they were both his father's in law, prophets of the law, it was cinnamon they both argued and raised their voices before him. He did not say a word to them. He remained silent, as per custom, as Allah has done elsewhere. A lot Mind you, this surah was revealed before sort of immediately before sort of the hain, according to many orlimar
according to whatever, and according to others, it was revealed after In any case,
say that it'll be a lot right now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not say anything to them. They both raised their voices in front of him, Allah revealed these verses, and allow warns of those who have believed laughter. I swear to God, do not raise your voices for assault in the be over the voice of the prophets.
Do not raise your voices. What are the Gerudo who will and do not speak loudly to him in discourse in speech, as you will loudly speak to one another, less your deeds perish. While she don't even realize these are two separate things. Meaning, even if you're not speaking to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you are merely in his presence, even in his presence, lower your voices, do not raise your voices in the presence of the message. Do not
and say that the alarm and I will look at all the alarm.
They learnt their lesson this was a lapse on their part. This was a momentary thing. Their human nature got the better of them.
And it was a slip, a momentary slip.
Otherwise, they immediately came to their realization they immediately came to their senses regarding this and straight away they both accepted
and do you know to what degree
I'm delighted observe at will the alarm when he relates this heavy man to law he relates this incident at this for these Abdullah was obeyed. He says that after the revelation of this verse, and after this incident, see then I would have known Barbara de la hora. And from that moment onwards, would speak to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so softly even though he was loud in a booming voice, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have to actually ask him what he said.
So he speaks so softly, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have to confirm by asking him what he had actually said.
And we'll look it over your loved one. He approached prophets of Allah and he will send them after the revelation of this verse and he said, O Messenger of Allah, I swear by Allah, that from now until the day I die, I will only speak to as a confidence, whispers to his confidence.
So I will only speak to you in whispers. And that's exactly how he would, what do you want out of fear that their deeds do not perish?
This is the other this is the actor arm. This is the respect that we have been commanded to show the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala, both in his life and after his passing. This is why that will a man unanimously say that in the presence of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If we are blessed with the opportunity of visiting the
masjid of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi Salaam. And being in that Masjid, we then avail ourselves of the opportunity to stand before Him humbly and off our greetings and salutations to him. Then, whether we give our Salaam to him or whether we are just in the machine in the immediate vicinity of his grave, in the presence, we must lower our voices and adopt the utmost humility, respect and silence in his novel presence. So you're gonna have Barbara de la hora. And once her two people speaking loudly in the machine, he came to them and he he summoned them. And he said, Well are you two from and they said, We are both from the city of life. So a lot of the alarm, excuse them, and
said to them, if you are both from the city of Medina, I would have beaten you to pain.
I would have given you pain by beating you. How dare you raise your voices in the presence of the Messenger of Allah meaning this was after the passing away of Rasulullah sallallahu early by his grave.
So do not raise your voices even by the grave of the Messenger of Allah. And
we must lower our voices in the presence of the Messenger of Allah says, How about the lover during his lifetime and for others now, if we are present in the masjid of an obese and the lamb I leave with them, then around his noble grave, we must present ourselves with the utmost humility and respect.
These words are applicable now, that will all say,
furthermore, that Allah may have gone to the extent of saying that all believers do not raise your voices over the voice of the messenger, that although the verse is not applicable, sorry, the verses was not revealed for this, but by extension of its meaning. And by applying the etiquettes.
We should also apply this verse to the hadith of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is show respect to the speech of the Messenger of Allah, and do not raise your voices or your speech over the speech of the messenger, which is the heading
so show respect to the Hadeeth or sort of laughs and alarm it was, this is how the Sahaba or the Allahu anhu and those who followed them, they respected the Hadith of the Messenger of Allah, Mr. monocotyledonous Allah, the Imam of Medina,
the famous Imam of Hades, the way he would relate to these when he would relate how these
people would gather and let sit outside in the gathering,
and he would be at home, he would be your dose. He would dress in his best clothes, and he would come out and before his arrival, he would instruct that
The whole area would be fragrance with bamboo
which we refer to as a rule then sugar would this would be banned in that whole area around the whole gathering. And then when everything was fumigated and fragrance, Mr Malik of newness would come out with great Waqar great self composure and dignity. Mr. Malik Rahim Allah would hardly ever joke or laugh, never, never. He was a man of great seriousness, and he was revered. And he says, when he started teaching, remember his teachers whether there be in they were the successors to the Sahaba of the a lot. He says, I did not sit to teach and to begin giving footwork. This also refers to the beginning of the verse, what did we learn? Oh believers do not forward yourselves do not
advance Do not place yourselves ahead of Do not be forward in the presence of alarms messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do not speak without knowledge. So in my medical model law essays, I did not begin giving fatwa, I did not begin answering questions of religion. And I did not sit down to teach until 70 of my leading Messiah, and teachers of Medina granted me permission to do so. Seventh.
And not just 70 individuals 70 of the leading Messiah Cantabria, in successors of the Sahaba of the Allah and their students, they granted them permission to do so. And it was a man of great work our composure
he would hardly ever laugh, never joke, hardly ever joke. And when it came to the Hadeeth, he showed immense respect. This is how he prepared himself. In fact, my mechanic would hardly ever teach much. he'd sit down, and the students would read Hadeeth to him, and he'd listen. That's all he would do. Listen, occasionally commenting here and there. Once he was walking,
and a man asked him, someone asked him a question about heavy while he was walking, the walking, and he asked him a question about how leave.
Mr. Monk actually turned around and slept.
And he said,
How dare you ask me a question about Hadeeth in such a casual manner whilst walking? It should be done respectfully in a gathering with dignity with etiquettes
there's a heavy there's a narration in the motto of Mr. Malik that if someone called someone a donkey, he is to be punished. So it's a narration of Mata. So someone asked him and Malik that, what's the punishment if someone's called, if someone calls another a donkey? So he mentioned the punishment narrated in his mortar. Then the man asked that what's the punishment if someone called another horse?
Now, we may not really understand this a bit in certain cultures, like in the Asian culture, the poor donkey is reviled. So if you really wanted his parents, and when you call them a donkey,
good our quarter in Arabic came out. So
but we may not understand it in English so much, but in Arab culture, in Asian culture, it's true. So he's if someone calls another a donkey, he used to be punished. So Mr. Malik mentioned the punishment, then the same question I asked him, and what about if someone called someone a horse? In my mind, he got angry? And he said, You should be punished?
Does anyone call someone a horse?
merely to tease them or abuse them?
Again, respect for knowledge, respect for the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So that will Mr. Say, do not raise your voices over the voice of the messenger over the speech of the messenger that means
of course not to that degree, just as Allah says
when the Quran is recited listen to attentively
and just there's a lot of quotes the arrange that the unbelievers at the time what do they say? Well Karla vena cava hula, hula Ronnie Waldo Fie.
That Oh, they will tell one another. Do not listen.
was the whole fee and cause disruption there in someone's reciting the core and create some dinner noise and cause disruption.
So although we can't do it to that degree, we can never elevate the Hadees to the words of a last panel without either but undoubtedly they come after the words of Allah. The speech of the messenger comes after the speech of Allah, respect for the speech of the messenger salallahu alayhi wa sallam comes immediately after the after respect to the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We need to learn how to respect the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam system, just as we supposedly respect the words of the last panel with Allah, we have a lot to learn about etiquettes about respect about their arm about other in every field,
especially in relation to Allah and His messengers, Allah Allah.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, Do not raise your voices over the voice of the messenger, he also told us how about the alarm?
What are the juggler who will only be bounded calmly but do not speak loudly to him in speech as you would speak loudly to one another, and in another verse of the court and sort of rule of law
Do not call out to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do not make the call or the address to the messenger like your manner of addressing one another which simply means this you know how we call one another Hosein or buck Roma Do not call the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by such terms.
Allah never said Yeah.
Oh, Allah always called him Yeah, you have to be
a prophet profits.
So address them with a title of respect. Do not just say Oh, Mohammed, this is why only the better one would say that. And that's how battle the alarm would be very offended. Otherwise, so how about all the alarm when they would speak to him? How would they address him? Lachlan, further, Kirby, what me are sold on
me my parents, my father and mother be your ransom or messenger
may be sacrificed for your sake on messenger of Allah, even his wives, the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not call out to him by his first name. They would never say they would say messenger of Allah. Now these were the wives, they would show him respect. The wives respected him. The Companions respected him. His fathers in law respected him.
His enemies respected him.
abou Sophia and when he learns that his daughter Rhonda
got married to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was achieved under the operation at the time. He did not fume in anger and react and make threats.
You know what he's had? A ball Sophia actually said even though he was a bitterest enemy of the Messenger of Allah at the time, of all Sophia actually said, she has married someone where
even though he was his enemy.
She has married a worthy man.
So his enemies respect. his wives respected him. And that meant the way we address the messengers, alarm ID or some of them. How about the alarm? We're not allowed to say or Mohammed or Mohammed, the only people who did it? Were the rough, Bedouin, the unrefined course, Bedouin, but not the Sahaba of the ally. So that's another etiquette. last panel with Allah taught us to have out of the alarm, and then a law warn them that observe these advocates Be respectful towards a messenger indeed, and approach in mannerisms in speech in address,
lest your deeds perish and you don't even worry.
Now how does that equate? If someone calls the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or Mohammed
and does not address him properly. If someone raises their voices in his presence,
does that automatically lead to the perishing of one's deeds but all our good deeds become null and void?
Not necessarily. But you know what this verse means. This is the real mean.
When a person becomes disrespectful,
that lack of respect
diminishes the other person's position
in their view,
Each incident of disrespect
creates momentum for a subsequent occurrence of disrespect.
And soon before realizing a person becomes more and more relaxed, less than less observant of the boundaries, less and less
bashful, more and more provocative more and more belligerent, more and more liberal with the other person's boundaries and respect towards them, until,
without realizing they go to the extreme. And this may happen with the Messenger of Allah, close the door before it becomes too dangerous. Maintain respect to the Messenger of Allah, one incident of disrespect, one incident of casual behavior will open the door and create momentum for subsequent occurrences of casual behavior and disrespect. Once a person goes down that path, Allah forbid that disrespect to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam may eventually lead to disbelief. And that can happen.
Respect gains a lot for a person in
a lot of lives respect
those, and we've seen this we Islam teaches us so much about respect. So and inshallah I'll touch upon that on other occasions, but last panel without essays, lest your deeds perish. And you don't even realize, finally, the last panel with their analyses.
I'll end here, there's so much more to say. But I'll end here, conscious of the time. So I'll continue with the remainder of even this part of sort of next week. But
there are some beautiful stories about how this How about the labyrinth with respect to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and how they lowered their voices before him. And how Allah describes that lowering of their voices and their respect, as being a sign of
law has taught us so much about other than etiquette and we have to be mindful of it. I'll end with just one thing. If you recall, I mentioned about a lot of water on a Telly telling this hub out of the alarm, and not to enter the homes of the messengers of the law and even send them without permission, and without waiting for food. And once they've eaten, to eat, and then to disperse, all of that is applicable to us. These are simple etiquettes, which we have lost are mentioned in the corner.
We are not to disturb people.
And I'll speak more about that next week because a lot tells so how about are the alarm lighthouses and of course, what would have been better for this visit and delegation, we shouldn't disturb people, we should respect their privacy. We shouldn't just go banging on doors, knocking on doors at any time of the day. nor should we constantly disturb people, even by contacting them by fun.
That's an invasion of privacy is intrusive.
It really is.
We should seek permission.
For visits, we should be so mindful of other people's privacy that as Allah says, Do not enter the homes of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam even though he is your teacher, your leader, your mentor, your guide, he's everything to you. But respect his privacy. Do not enter his homes unless you ask expressly given permission to do so. If you are invited to food, then enter, but even for that food, have eaten and avelina enter you shouldn't wait for its time. Do you know what that means? Avoid visiting the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, at times when you know he is going to be eating
So when you avoid lunchtime, well in those days, it wouldn't have what we call lunch they would have had an usher meaning a mid morning large meal and not a large but a mid morning meal and an evening meal. But avoid times of eating. Why did not place the other person under an obligation.
So avoid times of eating alike expressly says that when you have eaten, then disperse do not stick around do not linger engaging in conversation, disturbing the family. There are so many simple other than etiquettes of food of inviting one another of visiting people. That law is a source of the law Riley who some have taught us about which we have lost.
I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala enables us to understand me lawmakers amongst those who have
observe these advocates towards Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I'll continue with the rest next week was a lot worse than the marinara he would have sold it. The Vietnam hammered while he was here dreams Chronicle long more comedic.
