The Madinan Society: A Tafsir of Surat al-Ḥujurat Part 4/12
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on Friday 6th May 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 fourth lesson places emphasis that despite our own knowledge and abilities, Allah and His Messenger know best. This realisation was engraved within the Sahabah who fully submitted themselves to the commands of Allah. The sooner we come to realise that Islam is a mercy for us and that following our desires will lead to our own destruction, the sooner we can understand that the religion is there for ease and goodness in our lives.
This lesson concludes by discussing the delight of having true faith and the steps we can take in order to achieve it.

respect to the listeners, we gather once again for the commentary of sort of
the 49th surah of the Quran.
six verses so far.
And to summarize the last parameter with the ANA
reminds the believers
of the need
to humble themselves before Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not to try and surpass them and do them or outpaced them in any way.
But he was also reminded not to raise their voices above the messenger above the voice of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whether in his presence
and addressing him or whether in his presence and not addressing him, or as Alma has believed and accepted, even in his absence, not to raise oneself or one's voice above the position of the voice of the messengers in the long run he was
a law then rebukes certain people who failed to show the
who failed to display the correct manners, observe the correct etiquette, and show respect to the messenger sallallahu wasallam. And a lot actually says over them that most of them have no understanding no sense.
Then law has the origin reminds the believers of the need to verify facts and ascertain the truth.
Before they come to a judgment or decision about someone or something
less, they inflict harm on someone and then come to regret it afterwards because they fail to act on firm knowledge on on the proof and evidence, right rather than impulsively reacting to rumor mongering hearsay,
This leads us to the end of the sixth.
And seventh, this is actually a continuation of the same topic. It branches out but it leads on from the previous verse. So that's number six last parameter Allah sees, yeah, you're living in Japan first minimum for Debian and to see what government budget harlot in
ultimate the mean that oh believers, if a sinful person comes to you, with some news, then ascertain the truth inquire. Lest you inflict harm on someone in ignorance without realizing, then you come to regret what you have done.
I mentioned that the famous backdrop to the revelation of this verse was a certain incident in which
and will either be rock bottom or be more it
was sent by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to collect Zika
there was great confusion and he
He was informed that the blue stallion, the people who are supposed to pay this occur, they were they had become rebellious and were refusing to accept the authority of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam or to pay any Zika and that his life was under threat as a result. He since he was alone, he did not continue with the journey. Rather, he turned back and went and informed the profits of the line he was suddenly some of the report that he had received, the report was false.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard his report in a gathering of companions. And the companions that are the Allah.
They, in their passion,
also reacted by becoming very angry and passionate. And they were suggesting to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he should take firm and decisive action against this act of rebellion on the part of the animal study,
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised caution. And he waited the last panel with Anna, and in the meantime, but I'm studying very innocently
when they sense that, when they realize that no collector had come, they feared that this was a result of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam his displeasure with them. So in order to clarify their position, they came as a large delegation to the messenger some of the law it was one of them. In the conversation that ensued, matters were clarified. And I've explained all of this in detail last week.
And following this incident, these verses were revealed. Now verse number seven is a continuation of this same topics or last panel with Anna says, Why are liberal in the physical assault on law?
law you up your comfy cathedra minimal marinara
that amongst you is the messenger of Allah.
If he obeyed you
in many affairs, you would surely suffer.
Well, in the la de la commune, a man was a unicorn.
Allah has indeed faith and
and has beautified it's in your hearts. What camera in a coma for a while for sukabumi ACR.
And Allah has made detestable to
disbelief and sin.
And disobedience will Oklahoma Russia. These are the ones who are rightly guided
for them in a law when it really as a bounty and grace from Allah and a blessing will love it when I came and Allah is all knowing all wise. Now this leads us to the end of verse number eight.
Now in verse seven and eight, what lost crown or Diana is saying
primarily to the companions of the Allah is first of all, wireless Wi Fi comm rasulillah. Now that amongst you is the messenger of Allah,
that our companions realize how fortunate you are.
That walking, talking, living and moving amongst you, is not any mere mortal.
Rather, he is a messenger of Allah. And all the verses so far have spoken of that position of that respect. Be mindful of how you address them. Be careful of how you speak in his presence. Be careful of how you speak to him. Do not raise your voices, when addressing him, Do not raise your voices, even when speaking to each other in his presence. Be mindful of his privacy of his needs of his convenience Do not disturb him, did not inconvenience.
Do not try to outdo him surpass him, Do not place yourselves before him in any way. So again, this is another reminder that realize that amongst you is the messenger of Allah. He is not a normal person. He is the Messenger of Allah recognized recognizes position first of all. Secondly,
except is authority
except is primes.
and be careful when you make your suggestions.
And when you present your ideas to Him
and do not burden
Do not try to enforce your preferences on him.
Do not burden him with your persistence. If the Messenger of Allah, consult you, then offer your opinion as Allah has told them, as the Lord told the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah says of the believers, what? Robin and their affair is by mutual consultation. And Allah addressing the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him, well Shall we feel
that our messenger of a lot, consult them in the affair?
solicit their opinions, seek their advice, when they have given their advice for that as into for the what galana law, once you have decided, then rely upon a law meaning you proceed with your decision, whether it's in agreement with their views, or not.
So with even with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, it wasn't a question of a majority. When he consulted the companions of the law.
He wouldn't necessarily go by what the majority said.
Rather, law warned him against. In fact, the last that told him what into the experiment fell out of the loop.
If you were to obey and follow most of whom are upon the earth, they would lead you astray from the path of all.
So the messenger sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam was told to consult them in affairs. But once they had dispensed their advice, once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had heard their views, he was still independent. And he was then told that taking on board their opinions, after seeking their advice, consultant them
after soliciting their opinion, whatever decision you come to, once you come to a firm decision, then for the walker Allen law rely upon law meaning you proceed with your decision, regardless irrespective of whether it's an agreement with them, with some of them with the majority of them or maybe with even minimum.
So even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam consulted them and this How about the alarm and realize this, and the last panel who had the honor on them, by making them the
the consultants of the messenger some of the love it or some of them, a lot still reminds them, that finally and after all, he is the messenger
and that means you should not try to enforce your opinion on him or be persistent with him. Say what you have to say respectfully.
And once he has heard you, you leave the matter to him,
Do not be forceful.
Otherwise, as happened on that occasion. When
and when he
came and inform the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the presence of the companions that Sterling had rebelled.
And they had intended to harm him, in fact, kill him, an ambassador of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam that was an act of war.
How about all the love, in their zeal in their passion? they reacted, not, not all of them, but a number of them. And in their reaction, they were suggesting to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he should take firm and decisive action
for the province and the love and equal some of them held back. So Allah tells them of that, saying, wireless Wi Fi comm rasulillah know that amongst you is a messenger of Allah allow you to configure a theme in an umbrella term. If he was to obey you in many things, you surely you would say
There is so much truth that
there are very few people.
Well, I would say that not many people have that resolve that determination
that far side
nativeness that foresight, that
that wisdom and sagacity,
to do what's right to know what's right, and not to sway with the wind
of people's opinions?
And people's opinions change all the time.
And people are very easily swayed one way or the other.
And that's why I lost crona Hall with the LSAT isn't a verse of the Quran, what do we do by
the facade that is similar to an omen for him?
And if the truth was to follow their desires,
surely the heavens and the earth and all who are there in would perish.
So if the truth was to follow the winds of the people,
Heaven and Earth would perish.
And that's what law says, what
are the leukeran civilian law, and if you were to follow, most of whom are upon the earth, that would surely lead you away from the path.
And here again, he says, law used to be the minimum learned that if he was to obey you and follow you, in many things,
he wouldn't suffer. Ultimately, you would be the ones making these forceful suggestions.
Thinking that your opinion is best thinking that you know better
when he is the Messenger of Allah,
and if he was to go by what you say, you would be the first ones to suffer and you would suffer the most.
And this is why so far the whole sorta has been about humbling oneself before Allah and His Messenger sallallahu wasallam. And submitting to that authority
and never trying to outdo, outpace.
And this was the beauty of this habit of the alarm.
Even though things may have appeared self evidence, they would still say, Allah has a suicidal alarm, it will seldom know best. And a perfect example of that is the surah beginning with the words Yeah, you had Latina and Ola to the mania de la hora, sola, are believers do not advance before Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam know your position, hope.
They're not trying to surpass or outdo Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? And how did the Sahaba the Allah demonstrate that? approximately a year or so after the revelation of these verses in the farewell pilgrimage, not in the early part of Hitler. But in the final few months of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam his life when his mission came to an end, in the farewell pilgrimage in that multitude
of scores of fans.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the leading companions, the tribes of Arabia, the chieftains of Arabia, the former custodians of the gather
all these people who many of them had come on an annual pilgrimage, and many of them who lived in Mecca and the surroundings.
Who knew every rock and who knew the rubble who knew the mountains in the Hilux. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked them
which city is this?
child in that congregation didn't know that they were in Makkah?
He asked them which month is this? Who didn't know?
Because before the days of Islam, mixed with their heritage and their pilgrimage, these days of the future were also famous because they would have these annual fairs.
So for them, it was a it was an occasion of pilgrimage coupled with trade and festivity and celebration. So who didn't know that these were the days of the pitcher
and who didn't know which dates was
And yet to each of these questions
that's how battle the alarm in unison said, Allahu
Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam know best Subhana Allah, the Sahaba of the Allah,
the primary recipients of the Quran, masters of the Arabic language poets, the people in whose everyday
language the Quran was revealed. The people who better than anyone else understood the vocabulary of the poor, and it's metaphors, its allegories. It's similar Cheez Its parables.
the nuances of the words, the shades of meaning, no one was better suited than the Sahaba of the land. And yet, to a simple question like this, they all replied by saying a lot or sort of acronym, Allah and His Messenger, no better lungs messenger, no better Allah, His Messenger. And I'll bet
that's the level of submission and humility.
And repeatedly I've given the example of I'm going to be a barber, the alarm, a famous word about him is what kind of walk often in the kitabi law. And
if someone wants to do a literal translation, of this phrase about See you then are the alarm. And it's mentioned in wakad, we're gonna walk off and in the Qatar villa.
And he omitted the alarm, literal, literal translation would be, he would
stand excessively, by the book of Allah. It doesn't make sense. What it means is what kind of what often indicates Abdullah, he was one who would excessively and abruptly come to a halt before the book of Allah.
Whenever the words of the animal mentioned to him say that the alarm
instantly fell sign and submit.
He was giving a sermon
and he actually mentioned that oh people do not raise your downs.
Do not raise your dad.
And then he gave the example of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his diaries. And a woman stood up
an old lady and she publicly sets the law and how can you say
that do not raise the downs when Allah in the Quran says that if one of you have one of you has given the wife in a whole
Data Domain cache. And if all of you has given us any power in power means a hold of wealth to one of the one to one of the women as a why, then do not take it off. Do not take anything
that this has to do with marriage and divorce. But that's not the topic but that's the context.
So when she said that, say
the law when he was a middle aged woman, he was the leader of the faithful. He did not feel embarrassed. He did not feel slighted or insulted in any way he wasn't angry or indignant.
He actually commonly accepted
accepted what the woman had to say and he felt safe.
Even though he could have he could have provided an explanation
say that I'm gonna be a lover and could have said could have for argument's sake
if someone had given a woman a huge amounts of wealth, and
that was before,
of course the Koran says do not take it off. But see the number of the Allah was giving people the example
of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and advise him he wasn't forbidding it.
For there were many things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dead, chose to do, chose for his family,
the opposite of which is entirely permissible in Islam.
But one is what's permissible.
It's entirely permissible to build a huge house entirely permissible. It's entirely permissible to keep gold at home.
It's entirely permitted.
To have 200 suits of clubs,
but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not do any of this. There are things that we do every day. We have to dishes before us. Never did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam combined two dishes in this lab.
one thing is what's hard and lawful and permissible. And one thing is what says assume none of the profits of the law or something, and then people
become excessive in lawful permissible things. Then there is no harm whatsoever in fact is to be encouraged that people are reminded not that it's unlawful but they are reminded of the Sunnah of the messenger some of the love it and that's all that say that
the law was doing.
But out of sheer respect for the words of Allah say that are under the law and fell silent. And there are many stories of say that
men repeat abusing him
such as Raina to his alfuzosin
he came to Medina and he told his nephew that you You are a man of standing in position with a BB I mean what meaning
so take me to see him tomorrow and seed on my behalf. That nephew said fine next thing nephew took his uncle or even with them.
It was actually one of the chieftains
of one of the tribes.
So as soon as he entered he sets the alarm in whole group of people here given a kebab.
You don't give as much wealth,
nor you just say the norm or the alarm being the alarm. he lunged at. He did. He flew into a rage and lunged at him.
So the nephew straight away said,
Oh, I'm even meaning last season. And who the last one would have been. What are these analgesia healing?
healing? He said, Oh ameerul momineen Oh leader of the faithful. Allah says in the Quran Hola. adopts forgiveness and enjoying the good
and ignore the ignorance. And he is one of the ignorant is head of his own uncle said he is one of the ignorant as soon as the nephew of Oriental
recited the verses of the Quran say that. Barbara de la horns, anger subside. That was the effect
instantly, and he fell silent, despite the insult, who will say that he was the leader of the faithful the uncrowned king of the whole of the of Arabia and beyond.
And a Bedouin tribal leader comes and accuses him and abuses him publicly
before his ministers
received a lot of the alarm and flew into a rage as soon as he was reminded of the verses of the
and there are many examples out humorous incident of holed up into Florida. regarding human last Chronicle with Anna again it was another woman relay and her issue was to do with divorce. Her husband divorced her in a particular manner through the heart. She came and pleaded with the messenger sallallahu wasallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam acting on his previous knowledge, told her that I do not see this except as a divorce and therefore you're separate from him. She began weeping and pleading with the messenger salallahu alayhi wa sallam remonstrating with him. She believed alayhis salaam came with the verses of the Quran. Allah Allah De Luca fiza with
the sticky Illa lovely a smile but how what are coming to our coma? Indeed, a lot heard the words of that lady who was arguing with not arguing in the sense of battling it with you or being rude or insolent in any way but who was pleading with you and remonstrating with you regarding her husband.
And while she was complaining and pleading to Allah because she then withdrew and began weeping.
So Allah has allows listening to your conversation. So that was holed up into ferula for the alarm. She was old. On one occasion she was walking through the streets of Medina I would have been a part of the alarm.
I was walking with his entourage. And she met him in the streets. And he was surrounded by other senior Sahaba of the a lot.
And she stopped.
And she began talking to him as
an old lady would speak to someone that she's seen grow up.
And she said,
Oh, look at you.
I remember a time when we used to say about you, lady,
little aroma, the diminutive of Allah, little angle. And now look at you and your pomp and glory and surrounded by an entourage and a medium, what many of them should be, say the naramata blah, blah de la hora and just remain silent. He didn't say a word, not a word in response. His companions were becoming very annoyed and defensive about him. After the lady had gone some of them actually said Oh, we'll meet on what mean how did you allow this woman to speak to you in that manner?
And he then reminded everyone that Do you know who she is? That is Hola. I've been to Florida regarding law reveal these verses of the quarter and the indeed laws have heard the words of that lady who was remonstrating with you so if a lark and listen to her from above the seven heavens then why would women not listen?
When it came to the
same with see them Abdullah misrule? Darrell the alarm?
See them I'm blocking them assume there'll be alarm was recited in the corner.
This was an homage. Someone came and complained to him or the alarm, that there is a man who is reciting the Quran in such in such a manner that we are unaware of meaning it's slightly different to the way we recite.
They disapproved of his recitation.
So see that it'll be a lot harder soon as he heard those words, that there was someone reciting the Quran in a manner that the others could not relate.
The words of the narrator are that he actually ballooned up in anger, In Flames in anger. That's how angry he became and raising his voice. He shouted. He wanted to summon this man. And he becoming flooded with anger actually ballooning up with anger, and shouting at the top of his voice. He said, Who is this man?
So when the person told him, it's not a matter of the meaning of the luck number, so there'll be a law home. As soon as he heard the name of Abdullah Massoud, there'll be alarm so that
the alarms subside, and he fell silent.
And then he said, if it's Abdullah, he was rude. And he has every right to recite the way he wants. And the reason again, he stopped is because he knew the position of so you didn't have to live in this or that or the alarm rang with the Messenger of Allah.
And, in fact,
what had happened and why did he respect Why did he fall silent again? Why did he come to an abrupt halt before long His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
One night he himself says
we remained behind in the masjid after Asia. I Abubakar and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam discussing the affairs of them. When we finished, we rose and we started making our way. We passed by someone reciting the Quran.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood there listening.
And we listened with him.
And then Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praise the reciter and turning to Allah said, Go and give this reciter the glad tidings
for his recitation.
See, because they were with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that man was engaged in salah and the darkness of the night.
None of them went. But after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taken back home. And one of the alarm went to see and he says there was none other than Abdullah and
she says, I resolved that in the morning, I would go and give him the glad tidings. He said, I went in the morning, and lo, again Abubakar MP meter.
So he recognized the position of Abdullah who was the alarm and the authority.
Scylla had given him in the stream in which he held.
He loved Abdullah Massoud ldlr.
Once Abdullah Masuda, the alarms home was being repaired. So I'm going to have the alarm, meaning stood there, just looking at the work monitoring the work.
And he was a meter not meaning.
So someone came and said to him, oh, meaning what meaning? Why are you standing here? Meaning what he said to him his own meaning what meaning Why do you need to preoccupy yourself, you being who you are, with your position and your importance? What need is there for you to stand here observing and monitoring the work of Abdullah? And I'm assuming this is rather lonely, isn't it? Of all people, you shouldn't have to do this? Whatever the person said, this was as important. This was as important this was his intent, whatever he said, so he then barbital the law and became so angry he didn't say a word to him. He just bent down, picked up a rock and flung it Hanson and said to him
away with you, how dare you come in between me and Abdullah?
when it came to the book of Allah and the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the words of Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
despite being who he was, would instantly and immediately come to a hot. So this is how a believer should be. So Allah says in this verse, why don't you come rasulillah and know that amongst you that is a messenger of?
Yes, he consults you and you may offer your opinion, but do not be forceful, do not be adamant, do not be persistent.
And do not expect the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to act on your whims, your preferences and your desires, or your opinions
that you do not know. Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam know best
no matter However, no matter how it may appear to
blow up your config feed a minimal amount of learned to him if he was to obey you in many things, surely you would suffer.
And if that was true, for this habit of the alarm is just as true for us. We do not know. And this is why it reminds us throughout the time that his law was the teachings of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
There are many secrets and there are many wisdoms in though we may not understand them or always be able to relate to them.
And that if if the truth
wants to follow our desires, then Heaven and Earth would perish. And this is why we must mold ourselves to the teachings of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not expect
the teachings of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be molded
And if that is the case, then as always happens, we desire one thing in the morning and something else in the evening. And yet another thing tomorrow morning, and yet a fourth thing tomorrow evening. In that way, the words of Allah and the words of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam become a jest, a joke.
Molded bended, twisted, contorted, to suit our momentary whims and desires.
If the Sahaba of the library who could humble themselves in that manner, even to a simple question as what which city is this? Which day is this? which month is this? All of them in unison replied a lot of sorta who loved his messengers on the light equals and
this is why Allah says Humble yourselves before Allah, His Messenger, some of the love it was, know that amongst you, that is a messenger of Allah. I'll say more on this and expand on this.
As I was saying, Allah subhanho wa Taala sees rather more and fields rasulillah now that emoji is the Messenger of Allah, or your theocratic theatre Min unimodal. And if he was to obey you, in many things, surely you would suffer.
And this ties in with what different verses of
when he took their sermon for the day Luke and Sabine in addressing the Messenger of Allah, Allah says,
If you were to obey and follow
many of those who aren't on the earth, surely they would lead you away from the path of Allah. And also must, Allah say he's one of the bad
episodes, it's similar to a lot of woman Fie him. And if the truth wants to follow their desires, and surely the heavens and the earth and all who are there in would perish
or would be corrupted.
We, in respect of Allah and His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
are far more lacking in knowledge, far more inferior in position
than even children in respect of the most intelligent and wisest adults, if you imagine the contrast between the most seasoned web experience, old, intelligent, wise
If we imagine the contrast between these two groups of people,
the that contrast the contrast between
us as adults as as the whole of the whole oma as the whole of creation,
that contrast between us.
And Allah and His Messenger, sallAllahu wasallam, is infinitely great, and the contrast between toggles and the whys of stuffy.
And similarly, just as the last as if he was to obey you, in many things, surely you would suffer. Imagine, if adults were to obey and to succumb
and to surrender
to every whim desire
and which have children?
What would happen, that'd be
that'd be corruption and anarchy at home.
And this is why
there needs to be discipline.
Even if the children cry,
even if they weep.
Even if they throw tantrums, for their own safety, for their own betterment for their own good for their own welfare.
We often have to deny
what their childish minds and desires wish for momentarily.
And it's always want to give them one thing, very short, attention span.
And once the excitement has worn off, they leave on something else. And that toy is forgotten, totally abandoned, even though our moments before it meant the world to them. It means more than their parents.
It probably meant more than themselves.
So children, despite their tantrums, their tears, sometimes even their damage.
And children have been known to children can be very manipulative and part of part of the manipulation of children is threats of self harm.
So children actually tell the parents I'll harm myself if you don't give me what I want. We're not talking about teenagers, we're actually talking about toddlers,
toddlers will threaten to harm themselves.
And this is part of that manipulative behavior that they learn even in
early childhood. So if despite their tantrums, despite their threats of self harm, and of endangering themselves despite their tears, and even though we may feel for them,
our knowledge, our experience, our wisdom, our better understanding as adults,
enablers to overcome our own pain, and for them our own sorrow and pity at their state, and to deny them and to deny ourselves, giving them whatever they want. Because we know that if we do obey them, they will suffer greatly, and we will also suffer as a result that the greatest suffering will come to them. Similarly, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us how to be in love.
despite your adulthood and your intelligence and your wisdom and your leadership, despite being who you are,
know that your relationship with Him. And your contrast to him is not that of a man to another man is that of people mere mortals to the messenger of
so if he was to ever obey you and watch you,
then you would be the first and the most.
And that's not just true for the Sahaba of the Allahu Allah is true for them. And where do we fit
even though we may not understand just like children Downton.
we deny children what they want without even explaining to them. We simply say to them, you'll understand when you grow up.
Similarly, there are some things which we will never understand,
just as children's man, physically, chemically, biologically, neurologically are incapable of actually understanding certain things.
biologically, and chemically, they are incapable of understanding certain things. And they will just have to wait
until many, many years late.
So our brains despite our intelligence we are and we think we believe ourselves to be as human beings and ally has endowed us with intelligence, that intelligence has limited that intelligence, we may be astounded by it.
And in many ways, of course, it is astounding. And it's a gift from the last panel with honor. But the giver of that gift has also told us that it's limited and suddenly for this dunya for this world.
How can we attempt to understand the great wisdoms of a last panel who
will try and outdo and surpass Allah and His Messenger some of the love it was in them with that feeble and stuff.
Our minds play tricks with us today, I never actually read the article. But
I was just skimming through some of the headlines, and one of the headlines was about false memories again, and this was another scientific report. I haven't read it. But the title
suggested what been covered in previous reports. But probably this is some new discovery, but about false memories that our memories are so deceptive, what we actually believe, to have happen.
As we saw it, as we experienced it, as we felt it can be very misleading.
Our memories are very damaged, very incomplete interpretations of the world around us at a given time.
And contrary to previous understanding, memories aren't stored, and then retrieved.
Rather, the brain actually tries to reconstitute and rebuild those thoughts and those memories.
So every time you remember something, your brain is actually reconstructing and restructuring the memory, and that over time. So imagine if you had to build something every day, or repeatedly, or you had to build something after many, many months, surely, you're going to get things wrong.
And so, this is what happens with memory and yet, so if we cannot remember our own experiences, and can be so easily mistaken, and our memories of our own feelings, emotions, experiences, sights and sounds and thoughts, and our interpretation of the world and reality around us can be so deceiving, so incomplete and possibly very false. Then with that kind of limited mind, how can we dare to challenge a lost crown of all Adana in his wisdom or try to understand a loss and other issues so we are children, and worse than children.
In contrast to allows knowledge and the knowledge of his messengers and the law
So we may not know the last panel who was
and there are many verses of the Quran that tell us
blue shadow shadow will love the animal one time later on the moon Allah says, It is highly possible perhaps, you may dislike something even though it is far better for you. And it's perhaps it is highly possible that you may like something when it is worse.

last travel with that, in his teachings messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his teachings have sought to relieve us to release us from our shackles not to burden us and allow repeat that throughout the program. You need to love will be coming to you sir What are you ready to become Allah?

And this is in the context of again, a law says the lotions to purify.
Many of the teachings of Allah subhanho wa Taala are meant to cleanse us to purify us to make us better. Though they may not be easy, they may be difficult.
So for instance we do we'll do the laws of purification are not easy.
Every time you break your Do you have to complete your ritual purity

So last round of data in the context of Woodall says
that last parenthood Allah does not wish to burden you in any way. Rather, law wishes to purify, and the law wishes to complete his fate.
There are countless verses throughout the Quran when addressing the rise of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah tells them, do this, don't do this, do this, don't do this. Then Allah says in the minute evil Luckily,
that Allah only wishes to remove all impurity from you or family of the household
and purify you completely. And these were the commands to the wives of the prophets in the law.
So all these restrictions
prohibitions are there not to burden us
not to restrict us.
But in fact to release us from our own shackles, because we are binding ourselves,
we are bound.
And that's why, in one verse of the Quran Allah mentions in very beautifully, we may not understand the wisdom of the teachings of Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but long is our source of Allah it will send them know best. And the verse that describes us beautifully is Allah gives an example of the companions that are the ally and Lithuania to be honorable sulan nibio me and Lydia Juna Houma Cubana in the Torah, in Jean,
those who follow the unlettered messenger and prophets, who is mentioned and registered with them in the Torah in G.

This is a description of the messenger some lock it in another there's a camera zoom in and forsaken.
Indeed a messenger has come to you from yourselves as easy as
that which you suffer the same words that are in this verse. No UTI or config Athena Minal ama What does Allah say? If he was to obey you in much learned to him, surely you would suffer? And that verse of sola Toba?
Indeed, a messenger has come to you from yourselves
as these en la Hema and what you suffer bears down heavily on him at Eastern Aleikum, he is desirous of your welfare, meaning Oh for him, he is with the believers, compassionate and merciful. That's the description of the messengers on the line.
So this is
how long is it who send them see their teachings and tell us that these are our teachers. mould yourselves to the teachings of a Latin is that a source of love and equals some of them, do not try to mold the words of Allah and His Messenger of Allah, or send them to your momentary whims and desires and your feeble opinions for you to not know Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knows it's coming back to this verse, while rasulillah now that Moshe is a messenger of nuclear conflict theory Minh and if he was to obey you in much learned to show to you
and indeed, we will suffer, we will suffer not only in the dunya, but in the
we will suffer in the dunya as well, not just in the US.
Many of the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu Eagleson them
when they are disobeyed,
there are disastrous consequences and those consequences may not be immediate. They may surface late
but we are the ones who will be the primary and greatest sufferers.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala as it says, and speaking about the Sahaba of the alarm, what are kinema habla de la commune?
So Allah says, if he was
obeying much then surely you would set up but Allah has indeed faith to you.
was a you know houfy Rubicon

And primarily This is a reference to the Sahaba of the Allah
that Allah is telling them if he was to follow you, surely you would suffer. But since you are companions apart from these few lapses overall, you have humbled yourselves before
For the messenger of Allaah, you have followed him, you have obeyed Him. And Allah has made you good and pure of heart. These were this habit of the mind
that Allah has adorned and beautified faith in your heart imagine in your hearts.
And a lot has made a man delivered to you and indeed it was to this habit of the alarm. This is why I'm delighted when the alarm was haze of this habit of the alarm.
a total mess,
of all of mankind the purest of hearts, are the companions of the Ummah
and they are the most profound of knowledge.
For Allah chose them, I'm delighted to assume that of the elaborate Ramsay's a lot chose them to be the companions of his prophets.
So indeed, they were
pure of heart light indeed, Eman to them. Of course, they, in their human capacity as human beings did suffer a few momentary lapses and allow warm them law rectified them they corrected themselves, but law use them as an example as beacons of light for the rest of them. So we can relate to them and follow in their footsteps. We learn from their few mistakes.
But there are few mistakes there few lapses paled in, paled into insignificance and completely disappeared by the overall greatness of good deeds. And this is my last panel with Anna says, Yes, if he wants to follow you in most things you would suffer, but because
disobey Him. You did obey Him, you did follow Him, you did humble yourself before him you did submit to Him, as a result of which
this was avoided. And Allah has indeed made he man beloved to you. He man was beloved to the Sahaba of the lava and and we know that and a lot of beautified it's in their hearts. This is why when Abu Sufyan was asked by heraclius, you're actually established in the question. This was in the early days, that well, by now it was the sixth or seventh year of Hitler. He said heraclius said to him,
Do any of the followers of Martin
turn away from his religion out of displeasure, or because they've become disillusioned with it?
So Abu sufian, Sedna. So heraclius said to him, that indeed this is the case with email when it mingles with the heart.
When its beauty and its delight, in at the heart of Bashar Shaka Zulu, the words of the Hadith are even heraclius said, this is the case with emang. When it sweetness when its delight mingles with the heart, no matter how much they suffer, the followers, and the companions of the prophets of Allah never abandon their faith or their beloved prophets. Never.
Because they are on a different level altogether. They are in a different world, the sweetness that they taste of the man, because Allah has adorned it and beautified it in their hearts. We can't relate to this. We just cannot relate.
One can't discuss or imagine or understand
or even relate to the concept of the sweetness of a man in one's heart. Until and unless one has actually experienced
was a uniform fee. And the law has beautified it's in your heart what government hi equal good for so coalition and a law has a door Allah has made detestable to you disbelieve and sin and disobedience. And indeed, so how about have your lover and who are like that? And if we follow in their footsteps, we we have a conscience to our conscience can knock answers and that's why you know how these related by my humble in amounted me the African
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, men Salah
was a it was a year for a woman, whoever is good deed pleases Him and whoever sin
then he is he is
if someone has a conscience,
and they do good, and by doing good, they don't regret doing good
as the law says, with the feet a minute unforeseen
Meaning on with steadfastness from their hearts. This is a verse in sort of Bukhara in the context of spending in the way of Allah.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says
those who get the example of those who give in the way of law
in which manner
with the beat the mean enforcer him with steadfastness from their heart, what does that mean? That means when someone imagine someone who gives 1000 pounds in the way of Allah,
they're not rich.
So it's not like 1000 pounds is a pinch for them.
Or not even a pinch, rather, it's a substantial amount even for them. Let's say they give 1000 pounds or a few 1000 pounds in the weight of a lot. That's a substantial amount. But they give it with steadfastness and the meaning of what the meet them in unfussy him is
that once they've given it, they never look back. They never think back. There's not even a moment of regret or self doubt that should I have given it. Did I do the right thing? Maybe I shouldn't have given it did I give too much. Now, they give and they forget, it's gone.
It's gone to a law.
That's meaning of what the feet and then I'm forcing him. So when and then so when someone does a good deed, and that good deed pleases them. And if it pleases them, they're gonna have no self doubts, but no self doubt whatsoever. They will feel I've done the right thing. And now that Allah gave me the ability, so whether it's charity, whether it's any of the good deed, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Man salat wa Sen. Whoever is good deed pleases him was that was a year ago, and his sin hurts. And the meaning of hurting is, it grieves him, it troubles him. So when someone commits a sin, they may suffer a momentary lapse, they may commit some sin. They may do some rock,
but they come to their real, they come to realize immediately
as the last parameter, Allah says in another verse, that those who are wrong themselves,
but as soon as they have wronged themselves,
they come to their realization, and they repent to Allah.
So whoever is misdeeds, trouble them,
then for who and what mean, then he is a belief. I mean, he has email.
And it's that easy, man. It's that conscience. It's that love of email, embedded in one's heart. It's that beauty of a man to be found in one's heart. And it's that detest, and that dislike and resentment, of disbelief, of sin and of disobedience, which causes a person to feel good about one's good deeds and to feel bad about one's bad.
And we have that in all of us. We should try to make the most we should increase and strengthen the conscience and try to decrease our misdeeds a lot stronger than us as those whose hearts highlight that, that
emotion is, indeed to them, beautified in their heart adorned in their hearts, disbelief and sin and disobedience are detestable to them. Then Allah eco Mirage, these are the rightly guided ones. And ultimately, this can only come from a last panel with Allah as a bounty, and as a grace from Allah histologia This is why a lot season one verse, your moon alikhan Islam, they announced their favor to you that they have embraced Islam, or not the more Allah yet Islam I can say to them, Do not boast of your favor to me that you have embraced Islam, but in La Jolla menorah, caminhada de man, rather Allah boasts of his favor to you, that he guided you to.
So ultimately, this crucial and last panel with Allah again, it's not something we can understand for them in a lot of this adornment of EMA and its beautification in our hearts. This endearment of Eman and faith tours. This dislike of disbelief, of sin of disobedience, and of corruption. All of this can ultimately only come from Allah as a bounty and a grace and a blessing from Allah. Father a minimum law as a great from Allah when Allah and a blessing will love him and Allah is all
Knowing all wise, I'll end here. last panel with an enabler Stan, Stan, me and law makers amongst those
