In one little horn whenever he want to talk

00:00:16 --> 00:00:22

when I will be learning and should audit and personnel and see the amide in Armenia he loves the little

00:00:23 --> 00:00:24

little flower hardy Anna

00:00:25 --> 00:00:37

when you learn the law, the holder should equally want to show that in the Mohammed Amanda who wore a pseudo sallallahu Terada and he was he was

00:00:38 --> 00:00:41

about Oculus ultimate Sleeman could even get the

American Foreign Ministry planner for Jean smilla rahmanir rahim Allahu Allah, he could look over your Long Island into your living room and also do it himself limits a

00:00:58 --> 00:00:58


00:01:01 --> 00:01:02

later at

00:01:04 --> 00:01:09

the Rocky Mountain Academy to Majeed Allahumma Burdick Gundam

00:01:10 --> 00:01:10


00:01:12 --> 00:01:12


00:01:13 --> 00:01:20

early Ibrahima in the jeep Spectre listeners that mid July over accardo.

00:01:27 --> 00:01:32

We continue with the seed of software, john.

00:01:36 --> 00:01:38

Last week we completed verse number

00:01:39 --> 00:01:40


00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

of the soul.

00:01:44 --> 00:01:48

And inshallah I'm speaking on the next verse today.

00:01:51 --> 00:01:52

Sort of,

00:01:53 --> 00:01:57

as I've repeatedly mentioned, its theme is

00:02:01 --> 00:02:07

how society should be built houses that how the Society of Medina was built.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:15

And in that context, the final verse, which we covered last week, was about

00:02:18 --> 00:02:19

the oneness of humanity,

00:02:22 --> 00:02:26

about humanity having descended from

00:02:27 --> 00:02:29

the same set of parents.

00:02:32 --> 00:02:41

And ultimately, we are all related despite our differing languages, ethnicities, backgrounds, color and complexion.

00:02:42 --> 00:02:44

We're all part of one family.

00:02:47 --> 00:03:11

And that ethnicity, lineage, bloodline, color, complexion, race, nationality, none of these things are a mark of a person's worth, or value. The only thing which makes a person worthy in the sight of Allah the Creator is

00:03:13 --> 00:03:15

the consciousness of Allah.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:21

God consciousness.

00:03:23 --> 00:03:30

Now having spoken about that, we now move on to the next verse in which Alas, paranormal with Allah says politan

00:03:32 --> 00:03:44

Willem de PUE Islam What am I at Khalid email of Hebrew Rubicam? We're into the law what a pseudo hula elliptical minima in the law for

00:03:47 --> 00:03:54

law says, the better instead we have believed, say you have not believed

00:03:56 --> 00:03:59

but rather say we have submitted

00:04:01 --> 00:04:05

and faith Eman has not yet entered your hearts.

00:04:08 --> 00:04:12

And if you do obey Allah and His Messenger,

00:04:13 --> 00:04:14

some of the law while he was sending them

00:04:16 --> 00:04:20

he will not reduce anything of your deeds.

00:04:21 --> 00:04:24

Very Allah is most forgiving, Most Merciful.

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


00:04:30 --> 00:04:31

this verse was actually revealed

00:04:33 --> 00:04:34


00:04:35 --> 00:04:36

a number of betterman

00:04:38 --> 00:04:41

came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:42 --> 00:04:44

and professed belief in Islam.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:54

They set to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:56 --> 00:04:57

that we have become what

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00

we are

00:05:00 --> 00:05:01


00:05:05 --> 00:05:12

Now, this was very late. So these people went from Makkah. They were Bedouin from

00:05:13 --> 00:05:16

a plant. Well, some of the tribe have been acid.

00:05:17 --> 00:05:23

So they were not from, but they were from the desert between Mecca and Medina.

00:05:26 --> 00:05:28

And they had never

00:05:29 --> 00:05:33

assisted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam prior to this,

00:05:35 --> 00:05:41

and this was after the conquest of Makkah. So there was no longer the traditional hedger

00:05:42 --> 00:05:45

which existed before the conquest of Mecca.

00:05:47 --> 00:06:01

So they had never taken part in any expeditions with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They had never assisted him or supported him in any way. They had never fought against him either. nor have they fought with him.

00:06:04 --> 00:06:07

And nor have they actually done the hedger

00:06:09 --> 00:06:16

from out of Medina to Medina, before the conquest of Makkah.

00:06:18 --> 00:06:20

So they were late comers to the faith.

00:06:23 --> 00:06:29

And they were just part of a very large group of people who are now embracing Islam.

00:06:31 --> 00:06:35

Because the situation in Arabia was that the

00:06:36 --> 00:06:37

many of the Arabs

00:06:40 --> 00:06:46

who weren't part of Mecca, or parts of Medina, but were scattered throughout Arabia,

00:06:48 --> 00:06:50

they actually played a waiting game.

00:06:53 --> 00:06:56

To the extent that they would say we are not going to

00:06:58 --> 00:07:00

accept Mohammed as a messenger.

00:07:02 --> 00:07:03

But nor are we going to oppose him.

00:07:06 --> 00:07:12

We'll see which way the wind blows. At that time, of course, they did not believe in any way.

00:07:14 --> 00:07:15

So they played a waiting game.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:20

even going to the extent of saying that we want oppose the

00:07:22 --> 00:07:23

oppose Mohammed,

00:07:24 --> 00:07:26

we won't support him We won't oppose.

00:07:27 --> 00:07:31

And of course, they had no faith at the time, they were just better than they were just Arabs.

00:07:32 --> 00:07:35

And they thought he was just under the lead.

00:07:37 --> 00:07:38

And so

00:07:40 --> 00:07:53

they categorically used to say many of them, but we'll see what happens we'll see which way the wind blows. And if the Munchkins triumph over Mohammed, and his companions.

00:07:55 --> 00:08:01

Many of them saw this as a conflict between the two city states of mccahon, Medina,

00:08:02 --> 00:08:03

between the orange

00:08:05 --> 00:08:06


00:08:07 --> 00:08:19

the people of the Ansel that they wouldn't call them the inside, but the Olsen bridge, and the people of yesterday. So they actually saw this as a conflict between two city states.

00:08:20 --> 00:08:22

And they prefer to remain neutral.

00:08:24 --> 00:08:31

Neither siding with any one party or opposing any one party or believing in the profits of the law it or some of them.

00:08:33 --> 00:08:39

However, when Macau was conquered, then immediately thereafter in the ninth year of which

00:08:40 --> 00:08:44

many people came to Medina and embraced.

00:08:45 --> 00:08:51

And this was known as animal food, meaning the year of the delegations.

00:08:52 --> 00:09:08

Because now, the prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam his power was consolidated. Those who are doubtful, they now believe that he was all powerful, and their hearts and minds opened up to his message.

00:09:10 --> 00:09:15

And many people began embracing. Of course, it doesn't mean that they

00:09:16 --> 00:09:18

necessarily embraced Islam

00:09:20 --> 00:09:29

out of fear, or that they were hypocritical and they embraced now and accepted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as a leader,

00:09:31 --> 00:09:39

and that they're embracing Islam and they're becoming Muslim was in itself insincere, because they were just going with the flow now. In fact,

00:09:40 --> 00:09:56

when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the ninth year of his draft when he marched north towards Shang and then he came, taps the book and did not continue his journey further north, and then having come to get the book he returned, during that

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

stay in the book you

00:10:00 --> 00:10:13

Many of the surrounding tribes, because this was to the extreme north of the Arabian Peninsula, many of the surrounding tribes came and paid homage to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Some of them

00:10:14 --> 00:10:27

were Christian because now they were in Shami territory. This is to the north of Arabia. And many of the tribes there had always been

00:10:28 --> 00:10:45

Christian, they were Arabs, but they were Christian, but Masonic assignments. So a number of them actually came, paid homage to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered into treaties with him, but did not embrace, they remained Christian.

00:10:46 --> 00:11:09

And they made it clear to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that we pay homage to you, we honor you, but we remain Christian. We do not share your belief, we do not share your faith. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually entered into agreements with them, and even accepted their leadership of the tribes in their areas.

00:11:10 --> 00:11:14

One of the tribal leaders was your Hannah, the Arabic for john.

00:11:15 --> 00:11:26

So one of the tribe leaders was actually called you Hannah. And he was recognized as a leader by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in that North northern region of Arabia.

00:11:28 --> 00:11:28


00:11:30 --> 00:11:33

there is no suggestion that the Arabs embraced insincerely

00:11:35 --> 00:11:37

because there was no compulsion whatsoever.

00:11:38 --> 00:11:45

If anything, the prophet SAW the love Island or seldom accepted the homage of a number of Christian tribes and their leaders

00:11:47 --> 00:11:55

and actually reinstated them as leaders and recognize their leadership of those tribes. And he entered into agreements with them.

00:11:56 --> 00:12:00

And they recognize them as being the supreme ruler of Arabia

00:12:02 --> 00:12:04

and their suffering. So

00:12:05 --> 00:12:08

there was no suggestion that the Arabs were insincere.

00:12:11 --> 00:12:19

But their minds and hearts began opening up to Islam, and to the prophets of Allah Almighty or settler, some of them

00:12:21 --> 00:12:30

may not have been initially as passionate as the Sahaba robiola were from the very beginning of Makoto makara.

00:12:31 --> 00:12:49

In any case, these tribesmen have the asset of part of the asset tribe. They were one of those people who embraced Islam after the conquest of Makkah. And they did embrace sincerely. But the difference between that

00:12:50 --> 00:12:55

and the other side of the line was that they embraced late

00:12:56 --> 00:13:03

after the conquest of Mecca, they never undertook any struggle with the profits of the LA Valley singer.

00:13:06 --> 00:13:11

And so when they came and said to him, we are believers.

00:13:13 --> 00:13:14

We are

00:13:16 --> 00:13:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I wanted to remind them and others, there is a great difference between

00:13:26 --> 00:13:29

or own does not deny their faith.

00:13:32 --> 00:13:38

But it points out the difference in their position, and the position of this habit of the alarm.

00:13:40 --> 00:13:45

Those who believed in him in the face of adversity, in hardship,

00:13:46 --> 00:13:49

in turmoil in trouble,

00:13:50 --> 00:14:02

and who made sacrifices, who stood with him, who suffered as a result, who never wavered for a moment, and who were there with him from the very beginning.

00:14:03 --> 00:14:09

They are the norm, they are the ones who are minority in that they have emerged.

00:14:11 --> 00:14:25

Whereas the newcomers, they hadn't yet displayed anything which reflected that inner conviction and inner faith, though there was no denial of the inner faith, that true level of faith.

00:14:27 --> 00:14:37

But since they had just recently embraced a last panel with Anna reminded them that do not call yourself men, because the rank of a man is truly great.

00:14:39 --> 00:14:46

Rather, you should say of yourselves, we have merely submitted, we've embraced Islam apparently.

00:14:49 --> 00:14:51

So this is the meaning of the best quality,

00:14:52 --> 00:14:59

the better windset and which betterman are we talking about? Not all the Bedouin but just some

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

In this particular instance, these were some of the tribesmen of the bundle acid of the acid try. So they came to the province of the law it was cinnamon, they said, and now we have become mcminn we have embraced a man faith.

00:15:16 --> 00:15:21

So Allah says all of them don't mean or say to them, you have not embraced me man.

00:15:22 --> 00:15:23

You have not become

00:15:25 --> 00:15:27

you have not become true believers.

00:15:29 --> 00:15:33

Rather What are all rather say a slim now, we have submitted

00:15:35 --> 00:15:37

What am I a holy man of you

00:15:38 --> 00:15:41

an email and has not yet entered your hearts.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:45

So this is not a denial of their faith.

00:15:48 --> 00:15:56

This is not to suggest that they were not Muslims or they were hypocrites in any sense, no, rather is just that.

00:15:57 --> 00:15:59

Islam has many grades.

00:16:00 --> 00:16:01

Islam has

00:16:02 --> 00:16:04


00:16:05 --> 00:16:07

and a person progresses in their faith.

00:16:09 --> 00:16:21

And undoubtedly, there is a huge difference between a person who's simply following the rules of Islam apparently, and another person whose heart

00:16:22 --> 00:16:24

is enriched with EMA.

00:16:27 --> 00:16:28

And there are many rounds.

00:16:30 --> 00:16:35

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was a messenger of Allah, but this How about the alarm?

00:16:37 --> 00:16:38

They were Muslims.

00:16:40 --> 00:16:44

And people of today who embrace the faith are Muslims.

00:16:46 --> 00:16:47


00:16:48 --> 00:17:00

we can't even begin to imagine the difference between the man of the whole room today and the man of just one of us How about the alarm?

00:17:05 --> 00:17:17

So last panel with the other reminders reminded the Arab Bedouin and otters that Islam is off grades. And I've covered this in great detail in my commentary of the hadith of Djibouti

00:17:18 --> 00:17:26

alayhis salaam, which we did a few months ago, in which gibreel alayhis salam came in the form of de l. Gilbert of the law.

00:17:28 --> 00:17:29


00:17:31 --> 00:17:50

the law on the right side Ethan he says that none of us recognize and nausea traveler he came and sat down before the messenger some of the law equal some of them placed his hands on his knees, and then said to him, oh, Mohammed, tell me about Islam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Islam is

00:17:51 --> 00:18:02

and the Chateau La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah what the theme is sorta, we'll go with someone I'm about to meet the minister that the lease of ILA.

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

So this man who the Sahaba did not recognize as being Jubilee. They just saw him as a very strange person who came in, in very strange circumstances, and acted strangely and asked very strange questions. So the first question which he posed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is what is tell me what's Islam.

00:18:26 --> 00:18:32

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Islam is that you testify verbally,

00:18:33 --> 00:18:35

that there is no god acceptance.

00:18:37 --> 00:18:40

And that Mohammed, Salah is the messenger

00:18:42 --> 00:18:52

and that you establish the law he gives the car you fast in the month of Ramadan, and that you perform the pilgrimage of the house if you are able to find a way to get a path.

00:18:55 --> 00:18:56

So he said,

00:18:57 --> 00:19:14

so Doc, you've spoken the truth, he's spoken correctly. So a lot of the a lot of unsavory marveled at him and some others have borrowed the alarm and began muttering amongst themselves that look at him. He asks the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a question. When he gets a reply, he's affirming the answer.

00:19:17 --> 00:19:18

And then he asked him

00:19:20 --> 00:19:22

what email

00:19:23 --> 00:19:28

to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he man is that you believe in Allah.

00:19:30 --> 00:19:32

And then he mentioned the articles of faith.

00:19:34 --> 00:19:39

That you believe in Allah, the angels, the final day, the book

00:19:41 --> 00:19:45

and then you believe in other good and bad.

00:19:46 --> 00:19:52

Again, he said to me spoken the truth. Then he asked him a third question, what's Essa?

00:19:55 --> 00:20:00

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Son is that you worship Allah as the

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

You see?

00:20:02 --> 00:20:03

If you do not see

00:20:06 --> 00:20:08

then that he sees you.

00:20:09 --> 00:20:17

So these are three though of course, there were more questions, but this is what concerns us now. These three questions

00:20:20 --> 00:20:21

encompass religion.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:37

And these are the three grains of faith. The first is Islam and the questions were progressive. The first rank is Islam. The second rank is Eamon. And the third rank is acid.

00:20:39 --> 00:20:55

And of course, in everyday language, we synonymously and interchangeably use the words Islam and Muslim. And that's completely permissible. But there is a clear technical difference between the two.

00:20:57 --> 00:21:00

Islam is apparent submission.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:03

emang is in effect.

00:21:05 --> 00:21:07

axon is the highest of these grades.

00:21:09 --> 00:21:12

A person can be of the first rank,

00:21:13 --> 00:21:15

and you'd be missing the other.

00:21:16 --> 00:21:23

A person can actually be of the first rank and the second rank, and yet not reached that rank.

00:21:25 --> 00:21:33

But the later ones can only come if the previous ones are there as a foundation, the upper layers can only exist on the lower layer.

00:21:34 --> 00:21:38

And it's impossible to imagine someone not being a Muslim yet having EMA

00:21:40 --> 00:21:45

or not being a Muslim, or having a man and yet enjoying the rank of S.

00:21:49 --> 00:21:52

So every Muslim is not necessarily a Muslim.

00:21:53 --> 00:21:58

But every mcminn has to be a Muslim, because he can't be a Mormon without being a Muslim.

00:22:00 --> 00:22:02

And a Muslim is one who just apparently submits.

00:22:03 --> 00:22:07

Because that's all we can go by. If someone testifies to the faith,

00:22:09 --> 00:22:13

fulfill the obligations of religion, apparently,

00:22:14 --> 00:22:15

we wouldn't know any better.

00:22:17 --> 00:22:20

They may actually be hypocritical.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:25

But we have to accept them at face value. We can't judge them.

00:22:27 --> 00:22:30

And we deal with them as though they almost

00:22:32 --> 00:22:33

we accept this.

00:22:35 --> 00:22:37

So all the responsibilities and the duties

00:22:39 --> 00:22:45

and the dynamics of relationships that are governed by being a Muslim, all come into play,

00:22:46 --> 00:22:50

because we are unable to detect the true level of their inner faith.

00:22:52 --> 00:22:57

But it's impossible for a person to be a mock

00:22:59 --> 00:23:01

or claim to be and what

00:23:02 --> 00:23:07

and yet not have Islam which is a parent's mission. And as I've said before Islam

00:23:09 --> 00:23:15

does not mean peace literally. Of course, Islam is about peace,

00:23:16 --> 00:23:24

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a play on the words he says, a Muslim woman cinnamon Muslim woman lasagna, here we have

00:23:25 --> 00:23:31

that the Muslim is one at whose hands others remain safe.

00:23:33 --> 00:23:41

So being a Muslim means you give security and you provide safety to us. That's part of being a Muslim.

00:23:42 --> 00:23:49

But technically, linguistically, Islam itself as a word does not mean peace.

00:23:51 --> 00:23:52

It means submission.

00:23:55 --> 00:23:58

Submit to the command of a law.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:02

And that's following in the footsteps of the Prophet Ibrahim Ali,

00:24:04 --> 00:24:06

who submitted to the command of a law

00:24:08 --> 00:24:11

on occasion after occasion, most famously

00:24:14 --> 00:24:17

on the occasion of the sacrifice.

00:24:19 --> 00:24:30

So Islam just means to submit a Muslim is one who submits. So if someone embraces Islam, praise fasts, all they've done is submitted upon

00:24:31 --> 00:24:39

that external submission does not necessarily have to be reflected in the person's heart. It doesn't mean faith.

00:24:41 --> 00:24:55

And that's what last panel with Allah tells them. The better in here, the better we can claim that we are. We are believers. So Allah said to the messenger, some of the love it was when you tell them you are not believe as you're not mocking.

00:24:56 --> 00:24:59

Rather, say of yourselves as slimness.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:05

We have submitted we have apparently become obedience.

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

And then the law categorically says that he man meaning that level of he man has not yet entered your hearts

00:25:14 --> 00:25:15

that will come.

00:25:18 --> 00:25:23

And that's why Allah says towards the end of the verse, what entity or law what a solar hula unit

00:25:25 --> 00:25:35

that indeed if you do obey Allah and His Messenger, Allah will not subtract, Allah will not take away anything of your deeds, Allah will give you your reward and for

00:25:36 --> 00:25:43

that shows that they weren't hypocrites. A lie doesn't condemn them. Law reminds them of the reality of their situation.

00:25:47 --> 00:26:01

And this is explained further meaning these divisions and this distinction by that famous story, which I related on numerous occasions of saddled Nabila carts that have the alarm, recorded by mom Hardy and others in their books.

00:26:04 --> 00:26:11

Sarah didn't have your cost of the alarm sees that I was once with the profits of the alarm, it was seldom when

00:26:12 --> 00:26:19

and I'm paraphrasing these from different narrations from different books. Some of the

00:26:20 --> 00:26:22

newly embraced

00:26:23 --> 00:26:28

leaders of the tribes, they came to him and asked him for wealth.

00:26:29 --> 00:26:32

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave

00:26:38 --> 00:26:46

an in the group of people who were present he gave to those who asked, but he deliberately excluded one purse.

00:26:50 --> 00:26:53

So Sandra Viola harm who was seated

00:26:56 --> 00:27:05

he thought that maybe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has given to the rest and excluded this one person because

00:27:06 --> 00:27:10

he does not think him to be worthy of receiving

00:27:12 --> 00:27:14

something from the Messenger of Allah

00:27:16 --> 00:27:18

or that maybe he doubts his loyalty

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

or we're still his faith

00:27:23 --> 00:27:29

and solidarity or love I knew that person to be a sincere follower

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

and loyal believe

00:27:34 --> 00:27:40

so sad little Viola and actually spoke up and said the art of super low what is the problem with that person?

00:27:42 --> 00:27:54

Malecon Fuller. The name is not mentioned here in this particular it. What is the problem with this person? or What do you have against this person that you gave everyone else we excluded him?

00:27:56 --> 00:28:00

And then set a little the alarm who says will lie in the law?

00:28:02 --> 00:28:07

By Allah? Indeed, I see him I know him to be a mock me.

00:28:08 --> 00:28:20

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't respond to the objection of side that of the law. Except with with the words almost lemma. Meaning, don't say mcminn say Muslim.

00:28:22 --> 00:28:35

So sad little the alarm rang fell silent. He says that this question was burning in me. So I couldn't contain myself and I spoke up again. And I said O Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:28:36 --> 00:28:38

What have you excluded him?

00:28:40 --> 00:28:43

The law in the law Oh Mina by Allah.

00:28:45 --> 00:28:52

Indeed, I know him to be a motmot so all that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in reply was a Muslim.

00:28:54 --> 00:28:56

Rather you should say was

00:28:57 --> 00:29:01

sacked, there'll be a lot more unfair assignment. And he says, but

00:29:02 --> 00:29:05

what I knew about him

00:29:06 --> 00:29:13

overwhelmed me. And therefore I couldn't contain myself and I gained spoke up and said yes all alone.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:20

Why have you excluded him? will lie in Nila Amina by Allah I see him as an

00:29:22 --> 00:29:25

so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again said almost

00:29:27 --> 00:29:28

rather you should say.

00:29:31 --> 00:29:33

Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:29:34 --> 00:29:42

actually placed his noble hands on the around the neck of sad little the alarm and said to him come here or sad.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:46

Know that at times.

00:29:47 --> 00:29:59

I give to certain people, even though they are less beloved to me, and less dear to me than others. But I give them an

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


00:30:02 --> 00:30:07

that they may be punished by Allah. Meaning that you find

00:30:08 --> 00:30:14

these people came to ask me, they are newcomers to the faith. They are tribal leaders,

00:30:15 --> 00:30:25

if I refuse their request, since they are so new to the faith, and they've come to the faith after many years of opposition,

00:30:30 --> 00:30:38

if I refuse their request, if they become disillusioned or disgruntled, and in that state,

00:30:39 --> 00:30:51

they rebel, or even if they don't rebel, they say something untoward. Regarding me, that will blast things. Either way,

00:30:52 --> 00:30:53

they would

00:30:54 --> 00:30:57

be liable to the displeasure of a last panel.

00:30:59 --> 00:31:00

They are vulnerable.

00:31:02 --> 00:31:06

And therefore, I honored their request

00:31:08 --> 00:31:10

in order to win their hearts.

00:31:12 --> 00:31:13

But there are others

00:31:16 --> 00:31:19

who are more beloved to me than these people.

00:31:20 --> 00:31:22

But I do not give them

00:31:23 --> 00:31:30

because I hand them over and I leave them to the conviction of their hearts and their contempt.

00:31:32 --> 00:31:35

And this was a case here and this is why

00:31:36 --> 00:31:58

the person who said there'll be a lover I was speaking of was a companion known as joy Lusaka of the Allah and this joy alumna, Soraka hora de la who and whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually actually excluded and did not give wealth, and for whom several the Allah spoke thrice in this manner.

00:32:00 --> 00:32:08

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once asked about the difficulty of the Allah Horan. On the same occasion, you may have been on the same occasion

00:32:10 --> 00:32:15

that I will have the alarm saw that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was

00:32:17 --> 00:32:24

honoring and given to certain leaders and certain individuals. He wasn't giving stray.

00:32:26 --> 00:32:29

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him without or the alarm.

00:32:31 --> 00:32:35

And the alarm rang was very outspoken. It was always at spoke.

00:32:39 --> 00:32:42

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, oh Buddha.

00:32:44 --> 00:32:45

What do you think

00:32:46 --> 00:32:47

of this?

00:32:50 --> 00:32:56

of join me? Join Osaka, Samudra de la Horne said miski

00:32:57 --> 00:33:04

is a very poor person, and he is as he is, like other poor people.

00:33:05 --> 00:33:24

Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about someone else and what do you think of him? Oh Buddha. So the prophets Allah Allah, Allah, Allah said Yasuda Allah, He is a leader of his people. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, no,

00:33:25 --> 00:33:31

that joy alone is more worthy than a world full of such P.

00:33:33 --> 00:33:41

So without the alarm it said Yasuda now you say this, and yet you gave to him but you excluded him.

00:33:43 --> 00:33:45

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the same thing

00:33:48 --> 00:33:52

that I give to those who are less dear to me for the fear that they may

00:33:53 --> 00:33:55

be open to a loss displeasure.

00:33:57 --> 00:34:06

Subhana Allah imagine the position of dry Lusaka howdy Allah, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually testifies personally

00:34:08 --> 00:34:12

and says, I don't need to give him because his heart is rich with content,

00:34:14 --> 00:34:41

even though he may physically be poor. One, two, He alone is worth a world full of people like these tribal leaders. And yet despite this testimony, the prophets of the love it was seldom thrice reminded Sarah that of the loved one that was sad. Do not say of him that you know him to be a mock Minh, rather just say most

00:34:43 --> 00:34:52

Muslim is a first round. He man is a great rank, which comes much, much late. Somehow.

00:34:53 --> 00:34:59

On the one hand, we have the story of Jayla Massara the alarm. On the other hand, we have the same bed

00:35:00 --> 00:35:00


00:35:01 --> 00:35:10

who, indeed they hadn't joined the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Before they hadn't supported him, they hadn't done the hedger.

00:35:11 --> 00:35:24

And this is why it's narrated, that one of the reasons for the revelation of this verse is that these Bedouin wanted to consider and regard themselves as being some of them are hardly at all.

00:35:26 --> 00:35:35

But how could they be? They embrace much later, they did not support the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Prior to this, they did not do the hitch.

00:35:36 --> 00:35:51

But still, despite all of that, they embraced sincerely. They met the messengers in the lobby, they beheld him, they spoke to him, they were present in his company, they were companions.

00:35:52 --> 00:36:08

And yet law tells them, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says of drain, but do not say of him that he is a Mothman rather say he is a Muslim, even though he testifies that He alone is worth more than a world full of those tribal leaders.

00:36:09 --> 00:36:29

And Allah says to these better than who saw profits of the law, it was who spoke with him who, who conversed with him, who were present, who embraced Islam at his hands. Allah says of them, that still even you You are only Muslim, you're not.

00:36:31 --> 00:36:33

So what should we save ourselves?

00:36:36 --> 00:36:38

What should we say of ourselves?

00:36:40 --> 00:36:44

we regard ourselves as being workmen. We consider ourselves to have

00:36:48 --> 00:36:56

a lot less than I was bested if even our Islam is correct, our apparent submission, let alone in it.

00:36:59 --> 00:37:01

So this is the meaning of this first quality.

00:37:02 --> 00:37:36

The better when said and this is this doesn't mean all of the Bedouin just some have been said that a subtribe out of the out of the bedroom and said, We have believed all of them don't mean or say to them, you have not believed you're not what mean? what are called worse than now rather you should say, we have submitted What am I according to email, you will become an email man has not yet entered your hands. But then Allah says, that will come. What entity or law what a soul. And if you obey Allah and His Messenger, so the law

00:37:39 --> 00:37:41

and this is the key, throughout the

00:37:42 --> 00:37:53

time and time again, Allah mentions the obedience of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, alongside the obedience of a law.

00:37:55 --> 00:38:00

There is no concept of one without the other.

00:38:03 --> 00:38:05

You can't obey Allah.

00:38:08 --> 00:38:10

When disobeying the messenger, so the law

00:38:14 --> 00:38:22

there is no obedience of Allah without the obedience of the message. And there is no obedience of the messenger without the obedience of Allah.

00:38:27 --> 00:38:28

Some people

00:38:31 --> 00:38:37

have gone to the extent of elevating the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:38:39 --> 00:38:40

to arang.

00:38:42 --> 00:38:47

Far, far, far beyond what law has, has given him

00:38:48 --> 00:38:49

to the extent

00:38:52 --> 00:38:58

that they consider themselves to be obedient to the messenger, some of the law it or some of them

00:38:59 --> 00:39:02

obedient of the messenger, some of the lahardee who sent them

00:39:06 --> 00:39:07


00:39:09 --> 00:39:14

they don't mind if they actually disobeyed a law in the process.

00:39:16 --> 00:39:30

They cannot there can be no obedience of the messenger alayhi salatu was without the obedience of Allah. And there can be no obedience of law without the obedience of the messenger, verse after verse testifies to this.

00:39:35 --> 00:39:40

In fact, Allah has a little goes to the extent of saying, flour

00:39:43 --> 00:39:59

now, you know, mocha faema shadowbane tamala g doofy emphasizing how to Jemima abate, when suddenly motor sliema that neighbor, your Lord or messenger of Allah, they will never believe until they make you the arbitrary

00:40:00 --> 00:40:08

In their disputes in the conflict and the disagreements that arise between them, then when you judge between

00:40:09 --> 00:40:20

they do not harbor any ill will or reservation in their hearts at your judgment. So not only is the obedience of the messengers of the law Heidi who send them obligatory

00:40:22 --> 00:40:26

in order to consider oneself obedient of Allah. Now,

00:40:27 --> 00:40:55

if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam makes any judgment, then parts of a person's IE man is that that individual harbors no reservation or doubt, or ill feeling regarding that judgment of the profitable we are suddenly moved to sneem and until they do not submit totally to the Messenger of Allah, because that verse does not speak about submission to Allah. It speaks about submission to the messenger.

00:40:58 --> 00:41:06

So he again last age remained in the bedroom and went into de la hora Sula, and if you obey Allah and His Messenger

00:41:09 --> 00:41:13

that's fine the verse on gunton buena la have to be rainy.

00:41:14 --> 00:41:15


00:41:16 --> 00:41:22

if you love Allah, then obey me. Follow me.

00:41:29 --> 00:41:31

When can't claim to love Allah

00:41:32 --> 00:41:34

and refuse to follow the prophets of Allah

00:41:40 --> 00:41:41

Subhana Allah.

00:41:43 --> 00:41:46

It may sound surprising, but there are some

00:41:47 --> 00:41:49

who say that we are Muslim.

00:41:50 --> 00:41:52

We are Muslim.

00:41:59 --> 00:42:06

If I can give you the example of Abu Bakar Cydia for the alarm, and the alarm, they are normally referred to as Shane

00:42:07 --> 00:42:14

two elderly, one of the the Shane abubaker, Norma of the alarm.

00:42:17 --> 00:42:21

So there are those who say abubaker, and the alarm

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

and the alarm

00:42:26 --> 00:42:30

that these three usurped the authority

00:42:34 --> 00:42:35

of the healer.

00:42:36 --> 00:42:41

And they lay the fault they laid a false claim to the leadership of them.

00:42:42 --> 00:42:45

And they abused them as a result.

00:42:46 --> 00:42:52

But there are others who actually say abubaker and Omar northman are the language making.

00:42:53 --> 00:42:54


00:42:55 --> 00:42:56


00:42:59 --> 00:43:11

the leadership of the owner should not have gone to them. It was a mistake. It was a mistake on the part of the whole owner. It was a mistake on the part of the companions

00:43:12 --> 00:43:13

to make them the lead.

00:43:15 --> 00:43:23

The leadership should have gone to add to the alarm from the very first day, but not to boubakeur, Omar, and othmar.

00:43:25 --> 00:43:25


00:43:27 --> 00:43:33

although we say it's a mistake, it's an error, and it was wrong.

00:43:36 --> 00:43:45

We will go along with it not not then now retrospectively, many centuries later, we will go along with it. So we accept it and we won't abuse them.

00:43:47 --> 00:43:48

But we still say

00:43:50 --> 00:43:59

we still say that their leadership was wrong. The leadership should not have gone to Abubakar and Ramadan are smart.

00:44:01 --> 00:44:18

And they were wrong in accepting it. The others were wrong in making them the leaders. But since it happened, we won't oppose it. And retrospectively, we accept it and we'll go along with it. And we won't say anything ill of these three Abubakar.

00:44:21 --> 00:44:25

Now, if you find that surprising, listen to the following.

00:44:26 --> 00:44:28

There are those who say we

00:44:29 --> 00:44:55

we believe in Allah. And we believe in the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but in the same light, they say the truth is gibreel made a mistake in taking Nobu and Prophet Muhammad. It should have gone to an economic policy. But jabril made a mistake. But fine, we accept.

00:44:57 --> 00:45:00

Therefore, we won't say anything. Ill of my

00:45:00 --> 00:45:01


00:45:02 --> 00:45:11

we accept his prophethood although we still maintain that it was an error, that jewelry of all people gibreel made a mistake

00:45:17 --> 00:45:22

in making the profits in making hammer the son of Abdullah the prophets

00:45:24 --> 00:45:31

that retrospectively, we accept it, we will go along with it. We won't say anything ill of Mohammed Abdullah

00:45:33 --> 00:45:46

not amend my dimension that in this context that some some people may say how can anyone think or are there people who say that we obey Allah but not the messenger? Of course there are many.

00:45:48 --> 00:46:02

So Allah says went into your life a lot sooner and if you obey Allah and the message, his message like he did come in America mushiya he will not reduce of your deeds and Emily's meaning.

00:46:03 --> 00:46:09

Allah subhanho wa Taala gives you an opportunity to show yourself

00:46:10 --> 00:46:15

you do what you have to allow will give you your award in full.

00:46:16 --> 00:46:18

Allah will not reduce your

00:46:19 --> 00:46:20

and this was a message to those bed

00:46:22 --> 00:47:08

that although Allah is saying to you You're only Muslim at this stage he man has not yet entered your hearts. But that is a way of the of the man entering your hearts which is apply yourselves to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala do what's required of you. And in that way, you will become true meaning you will become what many and in the process any good deed that you do last panel with Allah will not reduce anything of your good deeds of your reward. Not in the least. Allah for human life most forgiving, Most Merciful. In the next verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala can actually then explains who the true workmen were.

00:47:09 --> 00:47:11

So he tells a better when you are not.

00:47:12 --> 00:47:39

So then who were the more so unlike explained who the men were at that time, and he speaks of the noble companions of the alarm. But that's a different topic and Sharla will continue with that next week. May Allah azza wa jal enable all of us to stand by haymakers amongst those who reached the rank of a man and even beyond the rank of

00:47:41 --> 00:47:42

what's the law

00:47:43 --> 00:47:48

assumed to be humid while he was in Japan

00:47:50 --> 00:47:52

in West Africa,

The Madinan Society: A Tafsir of Surat al-Ḥujurat Part 11/12
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on Friday 14th October 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 lesson details the progression of faith of a believer. When a delegation of the Arab Bedouin came to Rasulullah and professed Iman, Allah revealed verses regarding their claim and told them what should be said instead.

The inner faith of a believer cannot be quantified, however external submission is the first grade that every Muslim should display. Following external submission is internal belief and finally the highest grade is that of Ihsan; to worship Allah as though you see him or that He sees you.

This lesson also explains how a believer should obey Allah and His messenger and what they should do to become true Muslims
