Imam Muslim

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

and others relate to the

00:00:58--> 00:01:02

from the companion the meme on the daddy of the Allah horn.

00:01:04--> 00:01:07

Who says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

at the mercy

00:01:12--> 00:01:13

of manly men

00:01:15--> 00:01:20

all Allah he will Nikita be here we are so lucky Willie inmitten Muslimeen our arm

00:01:23--> 00:01:28

so to me when it daddy it will the alarm says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said religion

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

is not see her.

00:01:34--> 00:01:38

We said nussey For whom?

00:01:41--> 00:01:46

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam replied, No see her, for Allah

00:01:48--> 00:01:51

for his book, for his message

00:01:52--> 00:01:56

for the leaders of the Muslims, and for their common folk.

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

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam has told us at the Messiah, religion is not see her.

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

And in some narrations of this hadith

00:02:15--> 00:02:19

he actually says this not just once, but three times.

00:02:21--> 00:02:30

In Medina Messiah in Nadine in the sea, in Nadine and Lucia, will now live in your Rasul Allah.

00:02:31--> 00:02:40

He said, Indeed, religion isn't to see her indeed, religion isn't to see her. Indeed, religion isn't to see her.

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

So he said, O Messenger of Allah, and to see her.

00:02:46--> 00:02:56

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, For Allah for his book for His Messenger, and for the leaders of the Muslims and for their commonness.

00:03:02--> 00:03:05

And the meaning of religion is no see

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

is that

00:03:10--> 00:03:13

this is a phrase in Arabic, which means that

00:03:16--> 00:03:19

a major part of religion isn't a see.

00:03:21--> 00:03:24

A major components of religion is not see.

00:03:27--> 00:03:31

It doesn't mean religion only means NASA.

00:03:32--> 00:03:37

And NASA is the entirety of religion. Now.

00:03:38--> 00:03:55

Of course, it's a part of religion, but it's such a major part. It's such an important component. It's such a vital integral part, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has actually characterize the whole bytes part.

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

An example of this is in

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

in from the Hadith we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and had dried off

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

Hajj is out of.

00:04:11--> 00:04:19

So what does that mean? There are five main days of hedge,

00:04:20--> 00:04:24

the eighth of the ledger known as the Darwinia.

00:04:26--> 00:04:30

And the ninth of the ledger, known as Yamato

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

and the 10th of the ledger,

00:04:35--> 00:04:47

the day of Eid also mainly known as Yom now, the day of sacrifice, and then the 11th 12th and part of the 13th and the 13th are all known as a young Sri.

00:04:48--> 00:04:51

So the days of

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

the Shri meaning

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

sending the means

00:05:01--> 00:05:50

because the Arabs in these after the sacrifice of the 10th, they would strip the meat of the sacrifice into strips and lay them, lay them out in the sun for drying for long term preservation and consumption. So they would turn it into what we know today in English as jerky or biltong. So the process of doing that was known as the Shri meaning drying in the sun. So because they would do this, the remaining the main two days or the third day, after the 10 for benign as a young, tertiary, the days of the shriek. So these are all five or six important days of hedge, and every one of them had names.

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

And the ninth of the hedger

00:05:54--> 00:06:20

has always been known as Yamato because that was a day of stationing in and spending time in the plane of Arafat. So the ninth of the ledger has known as your motto for the day of alpha. But hedge is much more than just remaining stationary in the plane of Arafat, which actually happens only part of the day

00:06:22--> 00:06:43

is not the full 24 hours. But after traveling for Mina on the morning for the ninth on the morning of the ninth and normally arriving there early morning, late morning. Sometimes people don't arrive till afternoon. And so they then stay there and station themselves in the plane of Arafat till the evening.

00:06:45--> 00:06:53

So that's only one partial act of worship one only partial component of the whole

00:06:55--> 00:07:39

pilgrimage. It's only one of the many rites and rituals of the whole pilgrimage of Hajj. And yet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said Allah had died offer, Hajj is Arafa and what the aroma have deduced from this hadith and many of the hadith is that although the whole pilgrimage of Hajj lasting so many days has many rules, rulings, components, constituents, rights and rituals, some of them optional, some of them voluntary, some of them recommended, some of them partially obligatory, or have a light obligation, many of them sunnah, some of them are of

00:07:41--> 00:07:44

a higher obligation such as watching

00:07:45--> 00:07:53

the alum actually agree that the greatest component of hedge the main pillar of her

00:07:55--> 00:07:57

without which there is no hedge.

00:07:59--> 00:08:08

And the bare minimum of an obligatory hedge is actually stationing oneself in the plane of alpha.

00:08:11--> 00:08:13

This is why many people who fall ill

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

in during hedge

00:08:20--> 00:09:11

one of the parts of the relief according to these people, according to these people, who are unable to perform the other rites and rituals of hedge because of their incapacity and their illness, is that they are actually, at least this used to happen before they are, they were actually transported specifically, often from the hospital to the plane of Arafat for a brief period so that they could remain stationary in the plane of Arafat, and thereby fulfilled the main fold the main obligation of hedge and then they would be returned to the hospital. So at least their hedge is fulfilled. So this is the meaning of a hedge Giraffa hedge is Arafa. Not that the hedge doesn't consist of anything

00:09:11--> 00:09:17

else. But this one component of hedge. It's so

00:09:18--> 00:09:19


00:09:20--> 00:09:28

It's so important and so significant. And such a major component that there is no concept of a hedge without alpha.

00:09:30--> 00:09:45

And at times, there is a possibility that only the stationing of Arafa constitutes the whole of Hajj for some people in certain circumstances. So we should understand the hadith of ADINA, see her in the same way

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

that nussey Her is so important, so integral, such a major and vital component and constituent of religion, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is actually

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

characterize the whole of religion by one of its major parts in the sea.

00:10:05--> 00:10:07

So what exactly isn't the sea

00:10:08--> 00:10:17

in many languages all over the world, which have imported part of their vocabulary from Arabic,

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

now see her has come to mean

00:10:21--> 00:10:23


00:10:25--> 00:10:26


00:10:29--> 00:10:47

advising someone imparting counsel to them. And this is exactly what we understand from the word and sleet. In the Indian subcontinent language is in many of the languages that have important part of their vocabulary from Arabic. But

00:10:49--> 00:11:12

and this is why, unfortunately, sometimes this hadith is Miss translated as the normal see her religion is advice. That's not the translation of the illness see her? This is why, all the way till now, from the very beginning, I haven't translated the word and see how just keep on seeing a demon to see her religion isn't to see her. So what exactly isn't? You'll see her

00:11:13--> 00:11:37

a advice. I'm not saying that the word advice is incorrect. That's a very partial translation. Advice, good counsel, is part of nasira but it's not actually the whole of nnessee and it's not the meaning of this hadith, that the normal see her religion is advice.

00:11:38--> 00:11:39


00:11:40--> 00:11:43

not see her means purity.

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

That's what I see happening.

00:11:47--> 00:12:14

peut in fact, that will Emma one of the reasons I haven't translated and I see her is that the Allah ma, say that this is one of those unique words in Arabic, that no other word. No other single word can actually convey the meaning incorporated in the word Nasi. There is no other word that can deliver the same mean.

00:12:18--> 00:12:23

So Naseeha means it's related to pute

00:12:24--> 00:12:28

and Naseeha. The form of the word mercy

00:12:31--> 00:12:38

means the distillation and the pure extraction of purity.

00:12:45--> 00:12:55

This is the meaning of the root word. Nasir her noon song called her nos which means period

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

last panel with the other

00:13:01--> 00:13:06

says in the Holy Quran, yeah, you're Latina. I'm on to it Allah hito Button no so

00:13:08--> 00:13:12

that all believers repent Unto Allah

00:13:13--> 00:13:27

and the SU Toba and the SU repentance, meaning a pure repentance, a genuine repentance, a true repentance, a sincere repentance.

00:13:29--> 00:13:34

Pure in the sense that it's not contaminated by insincerity.

00:13:35--> 00:13:38

It's not contaminated by deceit.

00:13:39--> 00:13:44

It's not contaminated by a partial intention or half heartedness.

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


00:13:47--> 00:13:59

when will a person's repentance be sincere, thorough and complete? When a person repents to Allah seeks Allah's forgiveness resolves never to repeat that sin and crime.

00:14:00--> 00:14:02

If there is half heartedness,

00:14:03--> 00:14:06

then that person will return

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

or even harbors a secret intention of returning. So this is part of being sincere to Allah.

00:14:17--> 00:14:27

That all believers repent Unto Allah, a pure Nisour sincere, complete, genuine, true and thorough repentance.

00:14:29--> 00:14:37

So this verse explains part of the meaning of Nisour meaning purity, genuineness.

00:14:40--> 00:14:42


00:14:45--> 00:14:48

the saw at nos means

00:14:50--> 00:14:55

being genuine, being sincere being pure.

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

Wishing Well seeking the best

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

asked wanting the best having the other person's best interests at heart all of this is related to MOS

00:15:08--> 00:15:26

and one good way of understanding it is in sort of use of the brothers of law cite the statements of the brothers of use of who said to their father. While we are abana Malika lotta Munna Allah use of what in Allahu La Nasir

00:15:27--> 00:15:44

oh our Father Paul we are then they said to Yahoo but a sedan yeah a burner Oh father Monica Natha manera use of why is it what is it with you that you do not trust us with use of our younger brother

00:15:46--> 00:15:49

what in hola hola. Now soon when we are

00:15:50--> 00:16:03

sincere and true well wishes for him. We don't mean him any harm. We don't mean him any ill. So why won't you trust us with him allow us to go out with him take him out.

00:16:04--> 00:16:07

Go out for play and exploration.

00:16:10--> 00:16:11


00:16:14--> 00:16:19

the genuine feelings the true feelings, the sincerity

00:16:21--> 00:16:22


00:16:25--> 00:16:29

a sibling should have for a sibling that must be

00:16:31--> 00:16:39

in another vessel salt us. Allah subhanho wa Taala quotes the words of the sister of the Prophet Musa alayhis salaam

00:16:42--> 00:16:48

Musa alayhis salam was released, hidden in a baskets release.

00:16:49--> 00:16:53

The basket floated along the river Nile was picked up

00:16:55--> 00:16:57

by the family of Pharaoh.

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

From Saturday his son was rescued in that way. But he refused to be breastfed by anyone because Allah had promised his mother in our our do who eat aka generic aluminum or saline that Allah promise the mother of Musa alayhis salam that we will most assuredly return him to you and make him into one of the messengers. So as part of the fulfillment of what Allah has promised miraculously, Musa alayhis salam refused to be breastfed by anyone.

00:17:31--> 00:18:00

Law guided his sister there, and she spoke to the royal household. And she said hello, do look at the birthing yak for Luna, hula, Hula, hula Nasser Should I not guide you to a family to a household who will take care of this baby and look after him? Well, Hula, hula NASA home and they will be sincere and true well wishes are for him of him.

00:18:02--> 00:18:06

So that verse also explains the meaning of notice.

00:18:08--> 00:18:16

That the sincerity and the genuine and true love that a family

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

a mother

00:18:19--> 00:18:22

ha harbors for her child?

00:18:24--> 00:18:40

How much does a mother love the child how how genuine and how sincere is the mother's desire for the well being and the best interests of her own flesh and blood and of her own child.

00:18:43--> 00:18:45

That feeling

00:18:46--> 00:18:51

that genuine desire for the welfare and the best interest

00:18:53--> 00:18:57

and the well being of the child is known as nos.

00:19:03--> 00:19:05

This is what Missy means.

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

nussey hat means

00:19:11--> 00:19:15

the very pure extract the most distill

00:19:17--> 00:19:20

true and genuine feeling

00:19:22--> 00:19:29

and desire of good welfare, well being an interest of another.

00:19:31--> 00:19:40

And this is why the orlimar say there is no single word in Arabic other than the word Naziha which delivers and conveys

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

all these meanings

00:19:45--> 00:19:50

incorporated into and portrayed by the single word nnessee.

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

This is what

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

the prophets of Allah had him set for

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

felt for their nation's

00:20:07--> 00:20:23

new holiday his Salam o Allah quotes in the Holy Quran what did he say to his people? Or the liberal communist Salah therapy or Onsala? Where Allah moment Allah him Allah Adam, I conveyed to you the messages of my law. What unser Holcomb

00:20:25--> 00:20:34

and I wish well for you, I seek the best for you. I have your welfare and your best interests at heart

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

prophet who the Alayhis Salam

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

he said the same

00:20:48--> 00:20:50

what an alumnus Amin

00:20:51--> 00:20:57

that indeed I am for you a very trustworthy Nasik well wish,

00:20:58--> 00:21:01

not just advise that that's part of it

00:21:07--> 00:21:25

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam told his people when a Saturday looking with Akela to Shimon and now seen and I sought the best for you, I wished well for you. And as part of that I advise you what I can now to keep on announcing but you do not love those you do not like those who

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

advise you who seek the best for you.

00:21:29--> 00:21:31

So this was the tradition

00:21:32--> 00:21:34

of the prophets of Allah Allahu wa salam,

00:21:35--> 00:21:39

Prophet Che bella his son unlock quotes into one a circle.

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

Okay for us, Allah Coleman girthy at the UN I sought the best for you.

00:21:48--> 00:22:06

So the prophets of Allah alayhi wa salam, the concern they felt for their nations, their desire for the best welfare for the best interest for the well being of their respective peoples and nations. That feeling is no sir.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam felt the same.

00:22:14--> 00:22:17

So, this is the meaning of Naseeha

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

loss of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a demon no see, religion is nothing.

00:22:27--> 00:22:33

This level of purity, of sincerity,

00:22:35--> 00:22:40

of wanting and desiring the best

00:22:42--> 00:22:47

having the welfare and the best interest.

00:22:50--> 00:22:54

At heart, all of these meanings

00:22:55--> 00:22:58

are incorporated in the word nursing.

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

And this is what religion is about.

00:23:04--> 00:23:12

Before I continued since I mentioned the concern that the prophets of Allah had eaten was salam had for their respective nations and this was part of their loss.

00:23:14--> 00:23:17

That same word this was part of then a see half of their ummah.

00:23:19--> 00:23:35

Part of the nnessee of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for us for this ummah, for his ummah, was, as Allah subhanho wa Taala describes in the Quran in surah Tober Amina woman Lavine lumen Nabi yo yo Kowloon who owe them

00:23:37--> 00:23:44

all Omar Hayden law calm you may know biller well you may know didn't mean what I had to learn Latina I'm assuming

00:23:47--> 00:23:54

that they the hypocrites tauntingly endearingly they would say of the prophets of Allah Almighty who seldom.

00:23:55--> 00:24:03

So Allah says woman who will Ledeen you lumen Nibi and of the meaning of the hypocrites are those who would hurt the prophets.

00:24:06--> 00:24:22

How they hurt him by rumor mongering and tauntingly and jarringly falsely saying of him. We are guna who are over them, and they say of him that he is soft of air.

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

The meaning of soft of air is

00:24:27--> 00:25:00

He's gullible. I translated the world often meaning soft of air, that's a literal translation of the rise of meaning of or than the meaning of softer air is his credulous his gullible, his easily swayed, and who said this, this is a hypocrite, because they would come to him and lie to him. They would make false excuses. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would Hema them, he will just accept their excuses. He wouldn't interrogate them, he wouldn't challenge them. He would impress them on the matter. He'd accept whatever they

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

would say. So they would go away thinking that was easy.

00:25:06--> 00:25:12

He is gullible. He's credulous, he's soft of air. He accepts anything we say to him.

00:25:13--> 00:25:21

So Allah subhanho wa Taala clarifies the prophets of Allah Heidi who was alums conduct and Allah says,

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

although Hayden

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

say, Yes, he is softer,

00:25:30--> 00:25:35

he is believing his trusting, but he is only trusting

00:25:37--> 00:25:42

his own only accepting, he is only believing for the sake of good

00:25:45--> 00:25:46

and that good is for you.

00:25:51--> 00:25:53

He is not easily swayed.

00:25:56--> 00:26:05

Despite knowing your falsehood, despite knowing that you are lying, prophets, Allah Allah Almighty who was doesn't press the matter with you.

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

He doesn't retaliate, it doesn't challenge you.

00:26:13--> 00:26:18

Here Himanshi he accepts it diffuses situation.

00:26:20--> 00:26:44

Otherwise, the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam is tolerant and accepting and believing and trusting, but not of you. He only does this out of good for you and for everyone. Otherwise, when it comes to trusting and believing, he believes and he he believes in Allah, human Nabila, where you may know little more meaning and he trusts and believes the believers

00:26:46--> 00:26:51

Warahmatullah Lilina amen, amen. And this soft,

00:26:52--> 00:27:01

accepting, trusting character of his, this in itself is a mercy He is a mercy for those of you who believe.

00:27:05--> 00:27:10

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam always wanted the best for everyone.

00:27:11--> 00:27:31

And this verse, is one of those that shows in another verse of Surah Tober, Allah subhanahu wa at the Ana says, but but Jacumba Suleman unfrosted coma azizan la Hema I need to hurry sonalika Medina Oh for Rahim verily has come to you, a messenger from amongst yourselves,

00:27:32--> 00:27:34

as he's an ally, Hema, and

00:27:35--> 00:27:38

that which you suffer, bears down heavily on

00:27:40--> 00:27:41

Hari Samadhi.

00:27:42--> 00:28:24

He is desirous of your welfare, of your best interests, of good fi built in an era all for him with the believers He is compassionate and he is most Merciful. And that's a messenger of Allah Subhan Allah hottie. So again, the word hottie some Alikum. He is desirous and keen on your welfare, good for you, and he has your best interests at heart. In verse of Surah, Al Aqsa, Allah azza wa jal says in the Be your own money in a minimum for same

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

what as far as Muhammad,

00:28:29--> 00:28:33

the prophet is closer to the believers than their own souls.

00:28:35--> 00:28:47

He and his Billy and his wives are their mothers. So in a way he is like a father, to the Ummah, in a way He's like a father to them.

00:28:51--> 00:28:54

And so, just as a father

00:28:55--> 00:28:58

has the best interests,

00:28:59--> 00:29:05

of his own flesh and blood at heart, he is desirous of and is keen on

00:29:07--> 00:29:12

and seeks good and the best, not just good but actually the best

00:29:14--> 00:29:18

for his children. Similarly, rasool Allah, Allah, Allah Almighty Who

00:29:21--> 00:29:27

has the best interests has the welfare, the well being

00:29:28--> 00:29:43

of his ummah, at heart, and this verse shows that again and the BeoLab idiom would mean him and unfussy him, the prophets is closer to the believers in their own souls. In fact, what parts of the meaning of this verse is

00:29:44--> 00:29:47

more than what our own souls

00:29:49--> 00:29:55

can one the best for us, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam wants the best for it's more than that.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

So in the tradition of the prophets of Allah, Allah Himself

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

Mmm, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had this nnessee

00:30:05--> 00:30:06

for his ummah,

00:30:07--> 00:30:12

just as the prophets of Allah had the same mercy for their respective

00:30:13--> 00:30:16

woman, nations and peoples.

00:30:18--> 00:30:20

So this is the meaning of Mercy Hara.

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

So now going back to the Hadith,

00:30:28--> 00:30:34

so last Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, A being on the see her religion is not see her

00:30:36--> 00:30:37


00:30:38--> 00:30:39

is to have

00:30:41--> 00:30:45

this field, this passion, this desire

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

this want

00:30:50--> 00:30:55

for the best, not just good, but for the best.

00:30:58--> 00:31:06

It means to be sincere it means to be pure. It means to be true, it means to be genuine.

00:31:08--> 00:31:13

One of the antonyms one of the opposites of nos is a rush.

00:31:16--> 00:31:28

In Arabic, so one of the antonyms of Messiah of this purity and of the genuineness is Lish. And this means forgery, falsehood, deception.

00:31:30--> 00:31:32

So that's another way of understanding the meaning of Naseeha.

00:31:34--> 00:31:36

Now see her is the opposite of her the year

00:31:38--> 00:31:40

or the or means deception.

00:31:42--> 00:31:44

Let's see how is the opposite of deception.

00:31:45--> 00:31:50

Being genuine, being sincere, being true.

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

Being pure

00:31:53--> 00:32:02

if you have a forged coin, a forged gold or silver coin, compare that to a pure gold slavery.

00:32:05--> 00:32:08

In fact, one of the in Arabic

00:32:14--> 00:32:20

one of the words that Messiah is related to is

00:32:23--> 00:32:24


00:32:28--> 00:32:31

so when you extract pure honey,

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

in Arabic, you actually say in the sacral acid

00:32:36--> 00:32:39

that I extracted pure honey.

00:32:40--> 00:32:49

This is absolutely pure, organic, pure, uncontaminated, unpolluted.

00:32:52--> 00:33:16

And this isn't a new meaning it's actually a very traditional original usage of the word Nasir masala acid. And in fact, Allah ma have gone on to explain that the word, the later meaning of Naseeha as we understand it, and the later meaning of purity is derived from the original usage of the Sattler acid that I extracted pure honey

00:33:18--> 00:33:20

or I purified the honey. So

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

one of the ways of understanding the seeker is the opposite of Hadiya.

00:33:27--> 00:33:29

Or the means deception,

00:33:31--> 00:33:49

Guile forgery. So imagine pure honey that's related to notice in the original Arabic usage. Imagine a pure gold submarine that has no pollution, no contamination, no mixture thoughts mixture, no forgery no deception.

00:33:52--> 00:34:01

That's pure. So that's another way of understanding the see her genuineness, truthfulness, sincerity purity to be true to be genuine.

00:34:04--> 00:34:08

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said demon mercy religion is no see.

00:34:10--> 00:34:30

And in one narration in Nadine and Lucia in Nadine and see her in the dean and you'll see her with verily religion is no see her very religion isn't a see her truly religion isn't see her thrice He repeated it. So so how about all the Allah Arnhem said O Messenger of Allah fullmoon no see her for whom?

00:34:35--> 00:34:40

This purity, the sincerity, this genuineness this truthfulness?

00:34:42--> 00:34:58

This total lack of deception and insincerity. Who should it be for? So the Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam said for Allah first of all, I religion is purity and sincerity and genuineness towards Allah.

00:35:02--> 00:35:05

This is why I said you can't you shouldn't really translate.

00:35:06--> 00:35:14

Or I wouldn't translate a dean on the seat how religion is advised because the first meaning is for whom? To Allah for Allah.

00:35:15--> 00:35:32

How can we advise Allah or impart good counsel to Allah rather the meaning is sincerity and purity and all of that I have just explained. One thing the best, being genuine being sincere. So, how do we translate

00:35:33--> 00:35:36

the see her into action in respect of Allah.

00:35:38--> 00:35:46

It means being genuine, towards Allah being sincere towards Allah, being pure towards being true to Allah.

00:35:47--> 00:35:52

No deception, no fish, no hither.

00:35:55--> 00:36:05

Remember Hadiya is the opposite of mercy. And her the era comes from her there. And what does Allah say of the hypocrites, you have their own Allah?

00:36:06--> 00:36:09

They attempt to deceive Allah.

00:36:13--> 00:36:13

So one

00:36:16--> 00:36:17

should not

00:36:19--> 00:36:20


00:36:21--> 00:36:25

or be false, or be insincere.

00:36:27--> 00:36:29

Or be deceptive towards a loss.

00:36:32--> 00:36:37

How can a person be deceptive towards Allah? How can a person be false to Allah?

00:36:38--> 00:36:50

It happens just as Allah said as I explained earlier, yeah, you have Lavina on to il Allah hito within the surah of believers repent Unto Allah and the source meaning a pure and sincere repentance.

00:36:53--> 00:37:10

That means that a person can repent to Allah and in sincere repentance. If Allah is telling is repent to Allah, Allah is qualifying it, that when you repent to Allah, make sure ensure that your boba his Nisour

00:37:12--> 00:37:26

your Toba is genuine. Your Toba is sincere. Your repentance is genuine and true and sincere. That means Allah is warning as against a false against

00:37:27--> 00:37:28

an insincere

00:37:30--> 00:37:32

against an incomplete

00:37:34--> 00:37:44

against an untrue and deceptive repentance. So how can a person be deceptive in their repentance to Allah subhanho wa Taala Well,

00:37:45--> 00:37:48

if a person committed sins,

00:37:49--> 00:37:51

and then they turn to Allah,

00:37:54--> 00:37:58

in what they think is repentance, and they say sorry to Allah.

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

Or they say to Allah, Allah, forgive me, Allah, I'm sorry, will love forgive me

00:38:10--> 00:38:11

but deep down,

00:38:13--> 00:38:15

they still harbor a desire

00:38:19--> 00:38:23

they actually long to return to that sin

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


00:38:29--> 00:38:32

their remorse, their contrition,

00:38:33--> 00:38:44

their feeling of guilt, these are incomplete, then there is a great danger, that their apology and their repentance and they're seeking of forgiveness

00:38:46--> 00:38:49

are all verbal are all just a formality.

00:38:52--> 00:38:55

And very soon they return to the old ways.

00:38:58--> 00:38:59

So just as we

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

our apology can be false to each other to creation, our apology and our repentance can be false to Allah to

00:39:11--> 00:39:18

so Allah warns us Oh believers repentant to Allah, a pure A sincere, a genuine repentance.

00:39:21--> 00:39:31

So this is the first meeting and the see her is to Allah, that one should not be deceptive or false to Allah. One should be genuine

00:39:33--> 00:39:37

in their relationship with Allah, sincere in their relationship with Allah

00:39:42--> 00:39:47

to obey Allah, to follow His commandments be sincere to Allah soprano who is

00:39:49--> 00:39:52

one of the meanings of being sincere to Allah is

00:39:54--> 00:39:56

to put a lot before everything

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

that Allah

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

comes first that is part of mercy to Allah.

00:40:06--> 00:40:11

Lightly uses this phrase in the Holy Quran Ivana Saharawi Allah who was sold,

00:40:12--> 00:40:25

if they are genuine, if they are sincere to Allah and His messenger. And if I explain the background to this verse, it will really help us understand the meaning of Naseeha for Allah.

00:40:28--> 00:40:29


00:40:30--> 00:40:38

it's a verse of sort of October. And it's actually in the context of visit the book, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is campaign

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

of the

00:40:44--> 00:40:52

so the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, as I've explained in great detail in my commentary of the Hadith sahih al Bukhari

00:40:55--> 00:40:59

hadith of Gaborone Malik Ravi, Allah one, please refer to that.

00:41:01--> 00:41:11

The in the campaign of the book, in the ninth year of hijra, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam appeal to the Muslims to join him

00:41:13--> 00:41:15

as a matter of urgency

00:41:17--> 00:41:18

on this expedition

00:41:25--> 00:41:27

the believers responded to his call.

00:41:30--> 00:41:31

Some of the hypocrites

00:41:34--> 00:41:42

had no intention of responding to this call and came in even before the journey. They made false excuses.

00:41:44--> 00:41:45


00:41:46--> 00:41:51

didn't speak to him before the journey they spoke to him after his return. Some spoke to him before

00:41:54--> 00:42:07

and before and after they came. But in fact, this verse is about before so some of them came and made false excuses. Prophets Allah Allah, Allah wa salam just accepted whatever they said.

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

Some of them,

00:42:20--> 00:42:37

genuine believes they had every see the hypocrites, they didn't want to join him. They didn't want to listen to him. They didn't want to respond to his call. So they came casually lied, casually made excuses and they left.

00:42:38--> 00:42:56

And these were the same people, as some of them, as quoted earlier who said women who love the new moon in the VOA Quran who owe them. So it's in the same context actually, that's the sum of the hypocrites. There are those either hypocrites who hurt the prophets of Allah and who say of him, he is softer there.

00:42:58--> 00:43:03

He's credulous, He's gullible. He accepts anything is very trusting and believing.

00:43:05--> 00:43:14

But there were others genuine believers who, either because of their illness, that invalid see

00:43:15--> 00:43:18

their lack of resources and means

00:43:20--> 00:43:32

they were passionate, they really wanted to go with the messenger Salalah highly awesome, but their illness prevented them their incapacity, the invalidity, incapacitated.

00:43:35--> 00:43:40

Their lack of wealth means and resources meant that they were unable to join him.

00:43:44--> 00:43:48

Some of them came to the Messenger of Allah and actually said to him or messenger of Allah.

00:43:50--> 00:43:55

We want to join you we lack any means and resources, do you have any

00:43:56--> 00:44:02

mouths, any ride that you can lend us that you can grant us

00:44:03--> 00:44:14

that we can use that to accompany you on this journey? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, I have no provisions to provide for you to give to you. So they turned away weeping.

00:44:16--> 00:44:19

And Allah refers to them in the Holy Quran saying

00:44:21--> 00:44:23

well, I love the Dhamma talk

00:44:28--> 00:44:34

and no, is there any blame on or Sansha on those who come to you so that you may give them a ride?

00:44:36--> 00:44:38

Well, Alan Medina dama Toka little Mila

00:44:41--> 00:44:43

Alta la dama la

00:44:44--> 00:44:51

I do not find anything that I can give you to ride on. So what do they do? Allah says that well lo

00:44:52--> 00:44:56

What are you know who to feed them in a dimmer has an allow you to do million

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

they turn away

00:45:00--> 00:45:12

Whilst the eyes are shedding tears on flowing with tears, out of grief and regret and sorrow, that they cannot find anything that they can spend

00:45:13--> 00:45:15

in order to join with you, John.

00:45:17--> 00:45:20

So it shows how sincere and genuine they are.

00:45:22--> 00:45:36

So prior to this Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says of the same people, least out of Darfur, Willa Adela Melba, Willa Levine and Adriana Romanian film, halogen, either aniseh Hula, he was.

00:45:38--> 00:45:41

There is no blame. There is no censure

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

on those

00:45:47--> 00:45:50

who are weak, or the ill,

00:45:51--> 00:45:58

or there is no blame on those who are unable to find what they can spend in joining you.

00:46:00--> 00:46:08

Yvonne Nasir, who will Allah He was sued, as long as they are genuine, true and sincere to Allah and His message.

00:46:10--> 00:46:21

So this is the background. Allah has used these words, either unnecessarily Allah who was sold, as long as they are genuine, true and sincere.

00:46:22--> 00:46:45

So what this verse shows is that Naseeha for Allah is to want the best, put a law before everything and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, have the most ardent passion and desire to follow the messenger of Allah to obey Allah as long as one can.

00:46:46--> 00:46:51

And when one is unable to obstructed by other impediments,

00:46:52--> 00:47:05

as happened here, they want to join him, but their weakness, their invalidity, their incapacity, their disability, their lack of means and resources prevented them.

00:47:06--> 00:47:15

But what was the state of their hearts? They didn't just sit back and said, Well, I'm sorry, I can't do it. What more can be expected of me now?

00:47:17--> 00:47:57

That will allow you to feed them in a demo? Has an Elijah do million own they tried everything. They came to the Messenger of Allah, they sought help from him that oh Messenger of Allah, can you give us anything that we can use to support ourselves in order to join you, when even the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam was unable to provide for them. They didn't just recline. They didn't just recline and relax. They didn't just resign themselves. Without any further thought or feeling and say, Well, we tried our best now Allahu Akbar. They felt the pain. They felt the regret.

00:47:58--> 00:48:06

They felt the sorrow they as grown men, as grown warriors, they wept

00:48:10--> 00:48:15

because they were unable to find anything to support them, enjoying the messenger of

00:48:16--> 00:48:19

so their heart's desire to have such a passion.

00:48:21--> 00:48:32

This is what Allah says, There is no harm. Unlike the hypocrites who came, made a sorry, excuse and left. And when they left

00:48:33--> 00:48:36

it were grilling and smirking about it thinking oh, we got away with it.

00:48:37--> 00:48:48

But the true believers were the total opposite. Despite being unable to join him, they felt that there was pain because they felt that regret that pain.

00:48:50--> 00:48:54

And this is why Allah says of them. There is no blame on such people

00:48:56--> 00:49:04

that are not sold in law who was sold as long as they are genuine, true and sincere to Allah and his messenger soul Allah Almighty.

00:49:06--> 00:49:22

Marlon Marcin and in Salim, Allah says, There is no path to blame and censure on those who do good. So what's remarkable about this verse is Allah has saying, even though they didn't do any good, because they were unable to join,

00:49:23--> 00:49:25

Allah still call them Massini.

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

They didn't join the Messenger of Allah. But Allah still calls the Marcin in those who do good

00:49:35--> 00:49:38

and this is why the prophets Allah Allah Allah He was live in a hadith related by many authors.

00:49:40--> 00:49:48

In the campaign of the book, he told us so how about all the Allah and whom you have there are a people in Medina

00:49:50--> 00:49:52

there are your brothers in Medina.

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

You do not traverse a valley. You do not climb or descend. You do not walk. You do

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

not do anything, say that they share in your reward.

00:50:06--> 00:50:08

So they were in Medina

00:50:09--> 00:50:33

and in the campaign of the book The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the Sahaba or the Allahu Anhu there is only our people in Medina. They are not with you, but you do not do anything. You do not walk you do not climb you do not descend you do not traverse you do not pass through even a valley, save that they share your reward with you. Why?

00:50:35--> 00:50:55

Because Allah has also described them as they never did anything but Marlon larceny them in Seville, there is no harm Sorry, there is no path to blame and censure on those who do good. They did nothing but Allah calls them the doers of good. Why? Because of then see,

00:50:56--> 00:51:05

their desire, their passion, the sincerity and the genuine feelings and the truth that they harbored in their hearts.

00:51:06--> 00:51:07

That's not see her.

00:51:10--> 00:51:26

So, this is the meaning of Ivana sapodilla. What as soon as long as they are sincere, as long as they are true, they are genuine, and as long as they have that nnessee half what Allah has assumed sallallahu alayhi wa salam. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said religion is no see,

00:51:27--> 00:51:35

the Sahaba said Ya rasool Allah nnessee, half of whom the prophets Allah love it, who was salam said, Allah, for Allah.

00:51:36--> 00:51:38

That's a kind of nnessee

00:51:39--> 00:51:40

a believer has for Allah

00:51:42--> 00:51:45

wa little solace and mercy halfa his message?

00:51:48--> 00:52:02

What kind of Mercy how should we have for the Messenger of Allah, the same sincerity, genuineness and truthfulness being true, genuine, genuine and sincere to the Messenger of Allah.

00:52:03--> 00:52:15

We have a duty sorry, in this hadith the prophets Allah Allah who actually says, Lilla, he will he Kitabi to Allah Hunter, his book. So how can we be since How can we have mercy for the book of Allah?

00:52:16--> 00:52:20

Again, plays the book of Allah before everything.

00:52:22--> 00:53:03

Be true to the book of Allah be genuine to the book of Allah, fulfill our duty to the book of Allah. We have a duty to Allah, we have a duty to his book, what is our duty to his book? There are many ways of understanding our duty but as I've explained before, one very good way of understanding our duty to and our relationship with the book of Allah with the Holy Quran, is as Allah mentions in Psalter Juma and the same meaning is portrayed in three of the parts of the verses of the Holy Quran. Allah says in surah three Jamar who a lady who will lead the battlefield will mean or Sula mean whom ye through ally him. To he is a key him we earned him human Kitab al hikma we're income

00:53:04--> 00:53:15

earning moonbeam law says it is he law who has sent amongst the unlettered people, a messenger from themselves. What does he do? You're through Allah him if

00:53:17--> 00:53:21

he recites to them Allah's verses, one

00:53:24--> 00:53:25

with the key him

00:53:26--> 00:53:27

and he nurtures them.

00:53:29--> 00:53:42

And number three, we are named Mohammed Al Kitab al hikma and he teaches in the book and wisdom. And the same three things are mentioned in three of the places of the Holy Quran.

00:53:43--> 00:53:46

That the function and the duty of the messenger of Allah

00:53:47--> 00:53:48


00:53:49--> 00:53:57

to recite the Quran as Allah says in the verse what amounted to an akuna minal muslimeen. One through Well, Quran, I have been commanded

00:53:59--> 00:54:04

to be of the Muslims. And one at low well Quran the I recite, or

00:54:06--> 00:54:48

I've been instructed to recite the Quran. So the messenger of Allah, himself would recite the Holy Quran for himself and also for his ummah. So that's the first of his duties to recite the verses of Allah, do our recitation. So that should be our duty to the Quran to number two, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam nurtured and molded the companions and shape their conduct and their character in light of the Holy Quran, which is about acting on the teachings of the Holy Quran. That is another duty of ours, and we only Muhammad Kitab al hikma and he teaches them the Book and wisdom that we should

00:54:49--> 00:54:56

we should this is our this is also our relationship and do within our duty towards the holder or earn that we

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

learn it's me

00:55:00--> 00:55:13

Yes, and it's wisdom. So these are the three main duties of the Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam outlined in these verses. And these are our duties towards the Holy Quran.

00:55:15--> 00:55:21

So this is a bare minimum. There are other things too, but our duty towards the Holy Quran, I want to see her

00:55:23--> 00:55:24

for the Holy Quran

00:55:25--> 00:55:42

should be what as the messenger SallAllahu sallam said, religion is Naseeha now see her for Allah for his book. So the minimum three components of our Naseeha for the book of Allah should be one below we recite the Quran as it should be recited.

00:55:43--> 00:55:47

As Allah says, you know who has to deal with it, they recite it

00:55:48--> 00:56:08

to its due measure, as it should be recited. So we recite the whole of Allah as much as possible, but not just suffice with the recitation, we also understand its meaning its importance message, and then not suffice with just its understanding, and most importantly, we act on the teachings of the Holy.

00:56:09--> 00:56:17

So this is not see her to the book of Allah. The third Naziha Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned was, whatever soon

00:56:19--> 00:57:02

that religion is Naseeha to Allah to his book and to His messenger. So again, what's our duty to the Messenger of Allah, just like the Holy Quran, there are many aspects of our responsibility and duty towards the Messenger of Allah. There are many ways in which we can be true and genuine and sincere to the Messenger of Allah. But one again, one very beautiful verse that helps us to do this is a verse of Surah, to the era in which Allah describes the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and then says towards the end of this verse, For Lavina, Armand will be here as a rule one or Saru, with the very Noodler the wounds in Amara Willa homomorphic rune

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


00:57:07--> 00:57:12

sort of those two after having described the prophets Allah Allah Allah wa salam Allah says,

00:57:14--> 00:57:22

so those who believe in Him for Lavina, Armand obey those who believe in him was the rule.

00:57:23--> 00:57:25

And those who support

00:57:26--> 00:57:27

one OS are all

00:57:29--> 00:57:31

and who assist

00:57:32--> 00:57:35

with the removal of the wounds dilemma,

00:57:36--> 00:57:47

and can follow that light which was revealed with him, will that go home and will fear these are the ones who are successful. So these are four things mentioned in this verse.

00:57:49--> 00:57:51

Believe in the Messenger of Allah, true belief.

00:57:57--> 00:57:58

Number two,

00:57:59--> 00:58:01

supporting the Messenger of Allah.

00:58:02--> 00:58:31

Number three, assisting the Messenger of Allah. And number four, following that lights and norms which Allah revealed with him, meaning his teachings, a Holy Quran. And then there is another there is a fifth thing mentioned in a similar verse in Surah, to fit her last pan with Allah says in that also Naksha he don't want MOBA shin on one of the era. They don't mean OB LA who are SULI What are zero who drew? What's a b Who, who Bhakra Toamasina, or messenger of Allah indeed We have sent

00:58:32--> 00:58:40

as a witness, and as a giver as a bearer of glad times, and as a warner. Why, the talk minimum Billa.

00:58:42--> 00:58:51

So the Old Believers, you owe people you may believe in Allah, and in His Messenger, so the same thing you believe in the Messenger of Allah

00:58:53--> 00:58:56

will zero and so that you may support

00:58:58--> 00:59:17

that's already covered in that verse. There's one more thing here what the what the at all, and so that you may revere Him meaning the messenger. So these are five things at least that we understand from these two verses, as our duty to the Messenger of Allah, believe in the Messenger of Allah true belief.

00:59:20--> 00:59:22

Supporting the Messenger of Allah

00:59:24--> 00:59:29

assisting the Messenger of Allah and how can we do that after his departure from this world

00:59:30--> 00:59:35

by supporting his tradition, his Alma,

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

his sunnah.

00:59:39--> 00:59:40


00:59:41--> 00:59:59

the fourth thing mentioned in the verse of Surah, Allah with the Burren muda Lydians dilemma and who follow the light so that's our fourth duty to him to follow His ways, the Holy Quran, his teachings, which Allah has described as light, and then the fifth duty mentioned in that book

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

So salt and fat is what to walk through so that you revere him. This is part of our on the sea to the Messenger of Allah.

01:00:09--> 01:00:15

Faith, Support Assistance, following an obedience and reverence.

01:00:16--> 01:00:19

Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam said

01:00:25--> 01:00:28

no see her for Allah, for his book

01:00:29--> 01:00:41

for His messenger. And then for the leaders of the Muslims, and their common foe, and in some narrations for the Muslims, leaders and laity alike.

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


01:00:46--> 01:00:50

we have to be sincere, not just sincere, but we have to have mercy.

01:00:52--> 01:01:03

Mercy Hafele. Muslims see her for the believers, I'm only translating and explaining what's in the Hadith. So I'll use the same word that

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

not see her for the leaders of the Muslims and the common folk, most Muslims.

01:01:15--> 01:01:16

So what's the meaning of mercy

01:01:18--> 01:01:21

for the leaders of the Muslims,

01:01:22--> 01:01:27

in fact for Muslims, leaders and laity leaders and common people alike?

01:01:30--> 01:01:41

Well, exactly, of course, this in the sea How is going to be somewhat different to a person's in the sea how to Allah to Allah's book and to Allah's Messenger? sallallahu alayhi wa salam

01:01:44--> 01:01:46

there are some additional aspects

01:01:48--> 01:01:52

but the mercy the word Mercy has still retains its meaning, which is

01:01:55--> 01:01:56


01:01:59--> 01:02:00

and extracted

01:02:03--> 01:02:04

and purified

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


01:02:10--> 01:02:10

and passion

01:02:12--> 01:02:13

and want

01:02:14--> 01:02:15

for the best

01:02:18--> 01:02:22

for others, for the welfare of others

01:02:25--> 01:02:28

for the best interests of others,

01:02:31--> 01:02:35

being true and genuine and sincere to others.

01:02:37--> 01:02:47

This is all part of Messiah and we should have that for leaders and laity alive for all Muslims, young and old, men and women

01:02:49--> 01:02:50

close and distant

01:02:53--> 01:02:55

seeing and doing

01:02:57--> 01:02:57


01:03:02--> 01:03:06

how do we show that mercy

01:03:08--> 01:03:12

to to others, how should we feel that mercy for others

01:03:13--> 01:03:14

in sha Allah?

01:03:17--> 01:03:18

I could explain now but

01:03:20--> 01:03:21

it will take some time.

01:03:22--> 01:03:29

So inshallah I'll defer it till the next session. I pray that Allah subhanho Would Allah

01:03:30--> 01:03:35

enable us to develop this mercy

01:03:39--> 01:03:40

for Allah

01:03:41--> 01:03:44

for his book for his messenger

01:03:46--> 01:03:54

Salallahu Salam aleikum wa salam was Allahu Slenderman Abdullah he will assume he's gonna be you know, Muhammad, why the the he must be a Gemini.
