Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
Wa salatu. was salam ala so you didn't Mussolini caught him in the beginning.
Muhammad in the he was so happy he Jemaine
my bad offer was with him in a straight line and regime smuggler Rahim

Allahumma Sanada Coumadin Wada, Muhammad camassia, later Allah Ibrahim
Ibrahim in Needham, Majeed Allahumma barik ala Medina improvment Kamau Bell, Rick Darla Ibrahim, what are the early Ibrahima in the
respect to listeners?
We continue with the see
the study and commentary of sort of Damona for the 63rd Surah of the Quran.
Last week, I gave a lengthy introduction
to the surah.
So I won't repeat any of that here now.
And we did start the
the C seed of the actual Surah with the beginning two verses. So I'll continue from there.
I will be lurking in a sheath line of regime Smilla Rahmanir Rahim
Ivana germana have gone out on a shadow in Nicola rasool Allah, Allahu Allah in Nicola rasool Allah, who you shadow in Milan, if the
law says when the hypocrites come to you,
they say, We testify that indeed you are most certainly the Messenger of Allah.
And Allah knows that indeed, you are most assuredly His messenger.
And Allah testifies that indeed they are most assuredly liars. I explained last week, how Allah matches their emphasis and their statements, word for word letter for letter,
emphasis by emphasis.
When the hypocrites came sort of sort of loss and the law, high legal syndrome,
not just on this occasion, but so many other occasions
they would say a lot,
and they would prefer they would provide false testimony.
As we proceed through the surah what I would like to what I would remind all of us to do is
to listen to observe
and take into account and consideration the behavior of the hypocrites then
and to draw lessons from what Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, often almost an every word.
And one of the first lessons we can take from the surah
is shahada false testimony. shahada doesn't mean false testimony just means testimony, but in their case, it was false testimony.
So Allah begins where that Surah with the words when the hypocrites come to you they say, Indeed we testify.
So they don't just say things calmly.
truthfully and honestly.
They are very melodramatic about it.
There's lots of drama and histrionics, flair,
So they don't just say you are the Messenger of Allah, and we believe in you.
They don't just utter the Shahada.
ruwais repeating themselves always testifying, always
as the Shakespeare says, the law
doth protest too much, methinks.
Protesting too much over emphasizing overcompensating.
So this is how they work with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, and this is the character and the demeanor and the behavior of a monastic.
Always trying to reassure, and always trying to cover themselves, conceal themselves, conceal the truth,
to lay it on thick,
and to add as many layers and veneers as possible, in the hope that the truth is never revealed.
So the hypocrites will come and say we testify, we swear that indeed You are the messenger of Allah.
So one of the first lessons we can derive from the surah is about Shahada.
shahada means testimony to testify.
And this testimony could be about what's in one's heart.
testimony is about reverse revealing or conveying information to someone about something or someone.
But they don't really know very well.
So for instance,
the opposite person doesn't know what's in your heart, or in your mind, they can't read your heart or mind.
So you are now acting as a witness. So there's a huge responsibility on.
Similarly, in a given situation, if others were absent, and they weren't a witness, they weren't present on a particular occasion.
They have no first hand knowledge of that incident of that situation. So they rely on the testimony of others. So those witnesses are brought, there's a huge responsibility on that witness.
And on their testimony,
in a court of law, a witness has a great standard.
The whole case may rest on the testimony of a witness or witnesses.
So in any culture, in any religion, in any society, in any legal system, in any ethical system.
When a person becomes a witness, they have a huge responsibility. And they occupy a very lofty position, albeit momentarily.
This is why shahada in Islam, is also a huge responsibility.
And that shahada, that testimony could be about other people, a situation, an incident, where a person is providing and supplying knowledge, to those who don't have first hand knowledge. Or this testimony could be about oneself. The other person doesn't know what's in your heart and mind. So you are now acting as a witness over yourself. And you are telling them what's in your heart and what's in your mind.
So you're not just speaking, you are now actually providing testimony, you are a witness.
And false testimony is a major sin in Islam, a major sin.
And that false testimony covers everything. So if you are providing testimony about others, or an incident or a situation, it includes that it also includes your testimony about yourself.
So if you say to someone,
I am your friend.
And I mean, well for you.
You aren't just making a statement. You aren't just speaking words. You are acting as a witness over yourself. And this person is entirely reliant on you. Just like in any court case, the jewelry, the public gallery, the judge,
the prosecution, the defense, in fact, the whole world
is reliant on you.
They trust you. Similarly when a person if you say to someone I
I am your friend and I mean wealthy. You are a witness over yourself before that person, you want to speaking words you aren't just making a casual statement, you are acting as a witness and you're providing a testimony, this person is entirely reliant on you, because they trust you to tell them the truth about the state of your heart and mind.
This is why Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, the meaning of witches,
there is no greater treachery and betrayal. Then
you say something to your brother,
whilst he trusts you and believes in you, but you are lying to
because that person is entirely reliant on this is testament.
Another example of testimony is between husband and wife.
There has to be trust,
and not just trust about
fidelity and loyalty,
and honesty, trust about feelings, trust about love. So if a husband
says to the wife, that I love you, he's not just making a statement in Islam.
He is providing testimony of the true status and condition of his heart. And she is entirely reliant on him. She has no other way of knowing.
So he's acting as a witness, and he's providing testimony.
So he has to be honest and truthful because this isn't just the statement. It's testimony, similar to these people providing a testimony to Rasulullah sallallahu. It was similar. They were saying we
that you are indeed the Messenger of Allah.
And that means that we believe in you.
Last panel with Allah says, Allah testifies that they are lies. So one of the first lessons we derive from these words, is the
obligation of providing honest, truthful, fair testing. In any situation, and false testimony is not a minor sin. It's actually a major sin in Islam. Imam Bukhari Imam Muslim and others relate from Abu Bakr I hold the law and who says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us,
Allah Akbar Al Qaeda
and in some narrations thrice he said this, Allah when a bit or Combi Akbar Al Qaeda or Allah Akbar Al Qaeda,
barrel Cuba, should I not inform you of the greatest of the major sins? Should I not inform you of the greatest of the major sins? Should I not inform you of the greatest of the major sins? They said, belie our salt Allah of course on Messenger of Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, ascribing a partner to Allah ship and Ishmael Kabila, number one,
the greatest of the major sins
number two, we're all valid thing. That disobedience of one's parents. And number three,
Allah was shahada to Zoo.
And then Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was seated, reclining. So when he said the first two, he said, Should I not inform you of the greatest of the major sins? And in some narration, thrice I said this, that he said, ascribing partners Unto Allah. And number two, the disobedience of parents disloyalty to one's parents, at all, doesn't just mean disobedience.
In Arabic, we have a phrase, biblical validate, and its antonym is anything.
Now normally, this is translated as the obedience of one's pet to one's parents, and the antonym disobedience to one's parents. But the reality is the words bill and the words all cover much more. So it's not just obedience to one's parents. Biblical validation means virtue to one's parents, honoring one's parents being pious towards one's parents, loyal towards one one's parents. So all doesn't just mean disobedience. It means dishonor.
worrying and this being disloyal to one's parents. Anyway when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said these two he was still reclining. Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu said, Then he suddenly sat up and exclaimed, Allah will show her that azul. Allah was shahada to Zoo, allow shahada to zoom thrice. He said it's first, he said,
and low false testimony I this is the third of the major sins, low false testimony, low false testimony. Then the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu say, even though we only said share it with Allah wants and disloyalty to one's parents wants when it came to shahada desorbed
Sahaba the Allah Arnhem relate that prophets Allah Allah Allah was the more senior reclining, he suddenly sat up and began repeating shahada Zulu, he kept on saying it until Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and the other Sahaba say, We wished that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would stop saying it and he would fall silent, not because they were tired of hearing it but it sharpen Allah rasool Allah meaning being compassionate and sympathetic and taking consideration on him that we don't wish to burden Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with having to emphasize and repeat this point, because it's difficult for him. So out of compassion for the Messenger of Allah, we wish
that he would fall silent.
So he said this repeatedly. He not just thrice he just kept on saying it until the Sahaba said we wish he would fall silent. And which point did he keep on emphasizing allow Shahadat zoo, allow Shahad Zoo? Know that the third is false testimony. And in some iterations of this Hedy are sold allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam actually read the verse of the Quran immediately thereafter to emphasize the point. So what did he say first, should I not inform you of the greatest of the major sins? And then he said, three, number one, ship,
associates and partners with Allah to
disloyalty to one's parents and third, false testimony. Then he read the verse of the Quran, which then he will read seminal Athan in which then he will always zoom on afar, Allah later Mushrikeen
the Allah says in the Quran, which then he will read seminal Athan abstain from the impurity of idols. So Allah speaks of shall
abstain from the impurity of idols. And then immediately Allah says thereafter, which then he will call azul, and abstain from false test.
False words zu actually means falsehood.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited this verse, Immediately after telling the Sahaba or the Allah Arnhem, that these are the greatest of the major sins. So false testimony is not a minus in
the verse continues, whenever Allah be upright for the sake of Allah, later Mushrikeen without associates and partners with him, and part of that being upright is not just to avoid shipwreck, but it's also to avoid false testimony.
In fact, in a hadith Rasul Allah salAllahu Alaihe. Salam says, again, created by man Bukhari Muslim and others,
that my generation is the best of all generations than those who follow them than those who follow them, then a people will come.
Now he speaks of the generations that come later.
The spec was shahada to academia mean who were mean oshada That then a people will come and they will be such that unlike their predecessors, they will be a people whose testimony out does their oath and the oath out does their testimony
we are so quick to testify. We are so quick to provide testimony. They are so quick to swear vows and to swear an oath and to take the name of law
that you can't tell whether one is more excessive and swifter or the other.
So before you know it, they'll testify and before you know it, they swearing before you know it they providing false testimony testimony before you know it, they are swearing in the name of Allah before you know it. They are swearing an oath before you know it, they are testifying. These are the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, but the first three gentlemen
Asians are the best my generation then the two successive generations. And then there are thereafter we'll come at people whose shahada does and surpasses their
oath and the oath out doesn't surpasses their testimony. So, false testimony is a major sin.
And part of that being an upright monotheist is not just to avoid idolatry in all its forms, but to also avoid false words and false testimony. So, this is not the character of a Muslim. A Muslim and Walkman
speaks less anyway. One, two, and Walkman
says what He means means what he says he doesn't have to compensate overcompensate isn't have to emphasize repeatedly that he doesn't have to display
a lot of drama and histrionics when relating something because his character his demeanor is such that he or she is honest and known to be honest.
This is not the character of a man
who's always swearing in the Name of Allah, always taking notes, always emphasizing the point. Always protesting too much.
So this is a first lesson false testimony. The second lesson Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says at the end of the very first phase, will love will you show that in the hula girl the womb, Allah testifies that they are lives.
Line is not the behavior of a believer.
This is the characteristic and the trait of a Mona FIP. Of a Hippocrates
of a mole
the seats for treacherous person.
And what mean doesn't lie.
And lying is such a dangerous
sin law aka
the number of a hadith related by the salt from the salt Allah Allah Allah Almighty who sent him about the sin of life
there are many are Hadith one, and some of them are very severe in their content.
A believer doesn't lie.
When a person starts lie,
one line leads to another.
This behavior is cumulative.
It adds each line adds momentum
to the next one.
And this is why your mom will hurt your mom's slim and others relates from See you then Abdullah hypnosis Oh, that'll be Allah one.
But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at a con the setup
for in the SIP Leah the little bit. We're in a little bit of a yeti IlJin OMA is out or virtually yesterday
we have a sip.
Hatha Yoga bear in the law. He said the what Yuchen will get it for in nilka dbrt. It'll voodoo. We're in will for Julia de La Nina. Oma is an original Yes. We have to have well good hatha yoga in the like that.
So I have eatable Hurrians from this is a wedding of mama sliminess.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Ali can be setup, but here to the truth.
For indeed truthfulness, guides to virtue
and virtue guides to Jana.
And a man speaks the truth.
Well, Mizel original you're stuck with the hara set and a man speaks the truth and searches for the truth.
Until he is recorded as an extremely truthful, voracious person with Allah.
And the meaning of a man speaks the truth and searches for the truth.
The word Harley
we have handled with the hardware set comes from the Harley that
company doesn't just mean to search,
a casual search, it means to carry out a diligent search with a hope with a specific goal in mind.
So in this context, what does it mean that a man speaks the truth and searches for the truth? What it means is,
he says, Be truthful adhere to the truth. And a man speaks the truth and continues to speak the truth and search for the truth and searches for the truth. When a person speaks truth that adds momentum.
It creates honesty and truthfulness in each individual. True testimony true statements, true word, add strength, virtue to this person, and lament
to the subsequent truth until truthfulness, honesty, veracity, integrity, are all integral to his nature. So much so that the person doesn't rest by just speaking truth himself. But truthfulness and honesty are so integral to his nature, that he begins to look out for truth, search for truth, be attracted to truth,
wherever he may find it.
So he actually goes out in search of opportunities to speak the truth, to share the truth to stand up for the truth, because it's part of his nature, and like, attracts like, in Arabic origins so yummy religions.
genus is inclined to genus not genius, genus, meaning category. So each category of people are inclined to their own category of people. So the true foreigners, truthful ones, are immediately drawn to the truthful.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues in the Hadith.
What yuck when we'll get the meaning beware of line for line guides to sin.
And sin leads to Jim to the five. And a man speaks a lie and searches for law.
And until he is recorded, as a verb with Allah, just as a truthful person
isn't just considered a Saudi, with Allah, meaning a truthful one, he is considered a sidee and severe as a superlative form of Saudi, meaning an extremely honest, a voracious individual.
So the people don't call him very honest.
Allah subhana who would the Allah gives him the title of Sydney.
And conversely, when a man lies, what happens? He continues to lie, you lie once you continue to lie. Each lie adds strength to the subsequent lie. Each lie creates a desire in the person to lie again. Each lie adds momentum. Until line dishonesty
become such an integral part of that person's character and nature, that they aren't satisfied. They don't just rest by lying for themselves. No, they actually go out to seek opportunities and to search from moments of lying of dishonesty. So that they can share with other people's lives, they can stand up for lying. They can lie themselves, get others to lie, encourage others to lie. They, just as the truthful ones relish the truth, lies, relish, lies and dishonesty and treachery. It's part of their nature, they feed off it.
And this person continues to lie and search for opportunities to lie have their YouTuber in the light of Verba until he is written and recorded as a good job with Allah.
So the angels given the title of Gaza with Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah gives him the title of good verb, the verb means not just a liar, but an extreme liar.
And impulsive. Compulsive, incessant, unrestricted,
habitual, pathological liar.
There's no sense to his line. He lies for the sake of lie.
This is the
punishments of lying in the dunya before that,
that lying makes a person extremely dishonest, treacherous, untrustworthy.
so that the youth about lying are very severe Subhan Allah in one Hadith later by Mahara de la la, la Sula, some the law or they send them says
it was after fetch. So he asked us how about all the Allahu? He would ask them normally after fajr Have any of you seen a dream? Sahaba say he would ask us if any of us had seen a dream. If we had seen a dream we'd related then he would interpret it on occasions he would say something about it, sometimes it wouldn't. On other occasions, a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would relate his own dream. So on this occasion, he related his own dream. He said last night, two men, two people came to me, and he names them Djibouti Elan Mica.
In his dream, they both came and they took me on a tour.
So he went on a tour of the heavens
of Jana and Johanna.
And they showed him many things, many different people.
And I'll just shorten the Hadith. I'll mention only only the potluck consensus. So one of the people he saw was one of the scenes he saw was this. There was a man lying on the floor flat on his back.
And there was another man standing over him. So he mentioned in the scene, this is Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his dream, and the dreams of the MBR Ali, he was salam, our wagon revelation. So he saw a man lying on the ground. He is with Gibreel and mica II, and over the man lying on the ground is another man.
And the other man has a Galoob. A Galoob is a multi hooked instrument.
I don't know what the word is in English, but you know how you have. Sometimes you have a hook and it just has one hook at the bottom or two hooks. But you have one hook which has which has multipronged lots of hooks, that's what you call it a loop.
So there was a man standing over the one lying down with a Galoob in his hand.
And what he would do is that he'd go to the one side of the man, it take the hook, and he had attached the hook to the man's cheeks and jaw. And then he pull. This is a graphic description in the Hadith led by Malmo Hardy and others.
So he takes the hook, put it in the man's mouth, and pull until his cheek face, an entire jaw would rip away from the rest of his face. And what this person would do is that he'd pull all of that back to his nape
at the back, so half of his face, and then he'd do the same with his nose, and then his eyes. So individually, the mouth and jaw, then the nose, and then the eye. So in three stages, he'd pull half of the face to the back and clip it there. Then he'd come around and stand on the other side, and he'd do the same, the jaw rip away from the face, and
to the back of the neck, and then the nose and then the eyes. So in three stages the whole face. When he'd finished with the second side,
the face would come back together, so the man would go back to the other side and repeat the process. To the right to the left, the face would come together, he'd go, and he would do this continuously. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Gibreel and mica Isla Reina salaam, who is this and what's this? So the GBD and mica Isla de mas Salam said to him Carry on, carry on, that on all the previous occasions, he asked them, what's this? What's this? What's the meaning of this, and they will tell him carry on carry on from one scene to another. At the end, they told him now we will tell you the meaning and the reality and the truth of all of those scenes that you
witnessed, and they gave them the explanation of every one of them. And
what was the reason what was the explanation for this scene, the man lying on the ground, and the one standing over him with the hooks. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told by God and mica at him said that that man is a person who utters a lie, and then that lie read is conveyed and related from him until it reaches the horizons of the earth.
As a result, this is what shall be done to
there are other Hadith as well.
And this is why assault allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says lying is not the character of men. In fact in a hadith rate of Imam Bukhari Muslim
from Abu Hurayrah huddled the Allah Han and since we are doing the deceit of assault on our own these two Hadith Hadith woreda Who will be Allah Who am and Abdullah he mandible as the Allahu Allah
both very apt and relevant. So the first Hadith later by McCarty Muslim and others from Abu Huraira Harold the Allah and the Sunnah allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I don't wanna
either had the thicker than what either
way that Domina Ha, the sign of a hypocrite
is three things. Number one, the first one is our head, the thick of it, when he speaks he lies.
Number two, what is left when he promises He remains on his promise. Number three way that Domina harm when he is trusted.
and the other Hadith later by Manmohan Singh and Muslim again and others from Adelaide Muhammad Abdul asked for the Allahumma sort of La sala de la vida him send them said listen to the words very carefully. autobarn men couldn't a fee, Ghana on African harvest woman Kenneth fee has slipped in Manhattan, Ghana's fee has slipped a minute NIFA 30 day there
is a two minute ha what you that had the thicker than what you there had the other way the hot summer feature.
There are four things which he found in the person. He is a pure hypocrites,
heartless. He is a car this pure hypocrites.
And whoever has any one of these four traits in him, then he has in him a trait of hypocrisy until he abandons it.
What are those four traits? Number one is that Domina harm when he is trusted, he betrays
number two, we then had the fact that when he speaks he lies
now these two are already contained in the first Hadith. And then the third one in this heady way that I had read them when he pledges.
He proves to be treasonous.
And number four, what either Haslam or Fauja. When he disagrees, when he disputes his sin, it's
now in sha Allah. We don't have time now, but I will hopefully devote a session entirely to these two Hadith and explain them in detail.
But suffice to say for now, that in total, we have five different traits mentioned in the combination of these two Hadith both relate to bamboo curry and among Muslim, what are they? Number one?
Signs of a hypocrites and the traits of hypocrisy in a person are the following. One when he speaks he lives. Number two, when he is trusted, he betrays
when he promises he breaks his promise.
And number four, it's similar to number three, but it's a slightly different
so this is why sometimes you can say both Hadith only contain four traits, both together or you can say both Hadith contained five. So first one is when he lies he when he speaks he lies number two, when he is trusted, he betrays number three when he makes a promise, he breaks his promise. And number four, what you that are her that loved them when he pledges. That's why I didn't say promise when he pledges whether he proves to be treasonous, ie when he makes a major pledge, not just a casual promise, a major pledge a contract, an oath of fealty and loyalty. These are major, not just a minor promise, then he proves to be not just treacherous
guilty of betrayal, but he proves to be treasonous. He commits high treason
way that or that other. And number five, where you will have some official when he disputes his sins, which means simply that disagreements are a fact of life.
Father and son disagree mother and daughter disagree. Husband and wife disagree. Blood Brothers blood sisters disagree siblings disagree. It's human nature to disagree
to have a differing opinion. Sometimes too.
I disagree with one another, in such a way that it's not just a conflict of opinion, but sometimes of behavior. It happens. But
Allah is resourceful Allahu alayhi wa salam in the Quran and Hadith and our teachings of Islam have never been practically told us that
remove all disagreements as impossible. Allah himself says in the Quran, Allah is Luna matale fee, they will remain differing amongst themselves. But what Islam teaches us what Allah has was also the law highly husana have taught us is how to manage differences.
And part of that management is that when you fall into conflict, when you have a disagreement, when you dispute with another person, you confine that disagreement to the remit and the purview and the sphere of your original disagree.
There's no vendetta in Islam. Well,
you don't push the boundaries of your disagreement.
You don't go beyond the limits.
You keep it within its limits.
That's the character of a moment.
Once you push the boundaries of your disagreement,
once you go beyond the limits of your original disagreement, that is the character and the behavior of Amana.
So how would one go over the line? For instance, your original disagreements may have been about some money.
Now you make it about him, his family, his children, his property, his wealth, that one contract, that one disagreement and everything else tied in.
You don't limit it to just that
this is how conflict erupts. This is how disputes go on forever. This is how there is increased bitterness and recrimination and no forgiveness or understanding patience or tolerance. This is not the character of a mop mean this is a character of a man outfit. So anyway, these two Hadith what is the first word Rasul Allah Allah Allah Allah wa salam, first two or three words that he mentioned in the hadith of a warrior or the Allah and
the sign of a hypocrite is three things. Number one, when he speaks he loves lying is not the character of a movement. It's a character of a man if this is my last panel with Allah says, Allah who your shadow in them when I've been in the womb, Allah testifies that the hypocrites are not truly lies.
So these are the first two lessons we may derive from the surah from the first verse, false testimony, shahada, shahada zoo and number two, get the line. Moving on lust Hannibal with Allah says it. Amen. Jonathan subdue and Sybil Allah
they have take their oats as a sheep
for subdue arencibia. This they have prevented from the way of Allah in the Ahimsa Mr. Gun we Amadon indeed evil is what they do.
So quickly translate from the beginning, when the hypocrites come to you they'd say that indeed, we testify
that you are surely the Messenger of Allah, Allah knows that you are surely His messenger. And Allah testifies that, indeed they are surely lives.
They have taken the oaths as a shield.
Thus they have prevented from the way of Allah. Indeed, evil is what they do.
This is the third characteristic of a mana flip in the Surah.
oaths a man a man is the plural of you mean? Oh,
as I said at the beginning,
when Africa has never straightforward
enough, never says what He means and never means what he says. He doesn't simply speak. No. There's a lot of histrionics and drama is very melodramatic. Lots of flair, and showmanship and ostentatious
and acting. That's a character of ownership. You won't just say,
I'll do this with Allah He beloved, someone Billa hit Allah He, I swear by Allah and
such and such. Truly. In fact, throughout the Quran, Allah subhana wa Allah describes the hypocrites, amazingly, with one description in verse after verse after verse, You know what that description is? Yeah.
Definitely Villa Sadie from Ghana villa.
Surah Tauba say a California biller he'll accompany them caught up to me lay him later
in the home rates
this is about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returning from the book.
And I've explained this in detail in my commentary from so he will Buhari of Hadith
Hadith Academy Malakut of the Allah one, so refer to it
when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam returning from the book, campaign of the walk, Allah told him that when you arrive in Medina, all of those backsliders and all of those hypocrites, they will come and make all manner of excuses to you, but they won't just talk and say We apologize we are sorry we couldn't come No, Allah says say a California builder Hila committed up to La him there you will soon they will swear by Allah when you return to them so that you can so that you ignore them and you turn away from fine
turn away from them in the home but it's they are and they're jirsa they are an impurity.
So Allah says they will swear
in the name of Allah
Yeah, in another verse Yeah, if we're gonna be learning nominal income, they swear by Allah that they are off you.
Yeah, the foreigner biller Hello Camilla you do what Allah who are pseudo who you do income meaning they will swear by Allah to you. So that they may please you.
This is another characteristic of a monolithic and when affix sees everything in the short term in the immediate term, instant gratification.
What concerns and when AF IP is the here and now nothing more. And when AF is very short sighted
and will now if it doesn't look beyond a few short steps,
addressing only What matters now anyhow.
So, oh, I have to get this done now. Fine, I will say and do what ever it takes to get this done. regardless of the consequences, regardless of what comes afterwards. How will I explain myself later? What will happen later? What will people think doesn't matter. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
And it's very easy to lie deceive to what you want. Now, when it comes to explaining lie again.
The monastic will employ all the weaponry and armor in his arsenal on any given occasion to achieve what he or she wants, lying treachery, betrayal, dishonesty, false testimony, swearing in the name of Allah. It's all an act. The act is designed to convince you to pacify you to reassure you, so that you look away to conceal everything's about concealment. How can I conceal my true nature?
So this is what Allah says when you return to Medina. Say Lafonda Villa halacha mythical up to me lay him, why will they swear in the name of Allah to you, literally the one whom, so that you turn away from you ignore them.
That's all that matters to
It's remarkable. Then one afternoon. Why did they become one advocate in the first place?
Why Mike said short term gain.
He was Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, their fellow tribesmen from Olson has really embraced Islam. They thought what do we do? Not all of them embraced at the very beginning. Many of them embraced after better.
There's reason for that. Until better.
They were like
holding on to their cards.
They were holding out to see what happens.
they were teasing the Muslims. They were mentioned speaking amongst themselves all the way until bedtime, that these are refugees. These are riffraff.
They won't last when the grayish pursue them.
Hopefully, they will be they will perish. Then after the Battle of better
when the Muslims returned victorious to Medina, having vanquished the ratio of Maga despite their arm despite being 1/3 and outnumbered by three to one
in both numbers as well as weaponry and armor and man's
the Munna Hoon of Medina especially I'm delighted nobody even said all
He was the one who said, You know what?
Muhammad's affair has taken its course, meaning it's now taken its course and it's going in the right direction.
So we should now
follow him. Now it doesn't mean that before they weren't following him, I they became more fearful and much more serious after after the Battle of bed.
So for them, everything was short term Subhan Allah, look at this. They were in Medina, they would see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They would sit in his company, they would see him, hear Him, LISTEN to Him.
They would watch and observe him, they would travel with him, they would rise and stand and sit with him they would eat with him, they would share the same table and spread not table spread with him.
And yet, they weren't concerned. All that mattered to them was holding on to their wealth and their ways for a short while of this dunya and in doing so, they were willing to pay the price of the enmity of Allah and his resources.
It was all short term gain.
So this is the character of ownership. As a result, when the Munna effect when the hypocrite only sees the current situation.
He or she will say whatever it takes to convince you to pacify you to reassure you to conceal their true nature. That means swearing in the Name of Allah, so be it. This is a common trait. So throughout the Quran, Allah repeatedly says of the munaf it will say actually foreigner, foreigner Billa they will swear to Allah by Allah. And what does that verse say in which I just mentioned yet any foreigner Billa halacha legal book.
This is what I what I mean by short term gain, they will say like specifically referring to them on our football, they will swear by a lot to you why Lee will do them so that they may please you.
That's all they want to do momentarily. They don't really want to please you. They just want you to be pacified, be reassured, so that you turn away and ignore them and leave them to their devices so that you may momentarily be happy. And the words of ALLAH sublime, Allah says, Your California biller he'll accompany you to do them, they swear by Allah to you, so that they may please you what Allah what a sort of hoo ha are in your low income minima and Allah his Messenger or more rights feel undeserving that they should please them if they were truly believes.
Again, this is not the character of the moment. And what mean does not attempt to please a creation and what mean always attempts to please create.
Allah is more deserving, and more rightful, of being pleased and being feared than anyone or anything in his creation.
So throughout the Quran, One unique feature of the hypocrites is swearing an oath, your head, if you want to be law, say and if you want to be law. And you know what?
One of the themes of this well, it's not a theme, but one of the things we learn from these few verses, just three few words that we've just covered, I've sort of thrown off home, and we learn from other verses of the Quran as well. And I've explained this in detail, especially in the deceit of sort of the light
that each sin creates momentum for the subsequence
and as I've just explained, each lie
makes the second line easier and creates momentum for the second line eat sin creates momentum for the subsequent set
until it becomes a person's nature.
And we will Llahi we should fear these words that hadith of Abdullah Agnes rule there'll be Allah one that beware of lying for lying leads to
sin, and sin leads to the fire and a man lies and continues to lie and searches for law.
line until he is written as an extreme lie will Allah, Allah He we should figure these words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, I'll tell you why. Because
when this becomes part of a person's nature, they become deluded, truly dilute.
This is my Allah says of the hypocrites, the one Alpha goon thought of themselves as being so slick and smart.
That they weren't just deceiving everyone. They thought we are even deceiving Allah, you hide your own Allah hahaha.
They attempt to deceive Allah and he says Allah who is keeping them in error deceit.
person becomes so deluded. And why do I mention this because about swearing? Allah says in the verse of the Quran
and I'm Tara Ellen Levine at the willow Omaha the biller, the
mountain Nim Kumala I mean
have you not seen the people?
Have you not seen those who have befriended a people whom Allah has poured forth his scorn and his rage on?
And then Allah continues,
that they lie they swear in the name of Allah with lies knowingly, so they know they are lying and they swear in the name of Allah, over their lies.
Then Allah continues
that later on in that same set of verses Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, Yo Ma, yeah, but athel whom Allah Who Jamia and for you actually phone Allah Who gum is the phone, where some wanna underwear shape
that just as these people, the one after all lie to you in the world, and they swear in the name of long lie to you. Law says Yama, your bathroom Allahu Geneon for your California law, who am I gonna come on the day that Allah will raise all of them?
Then what will they do for you actually for the law who can actually afford a locum they will swear to Allah just as they swear to you.
So it becomes such a part of their nature, that when Allah resurrects them on Yom Okayama, and Allah questions them, they will swear in the name of Allah to Allah whilst lying.
So they will actually lie to Allah before Allah and swear in his name whilst lying to him.
And not only that, Allah says, We ask suborn or unknown Allah shape, which means, imagine this conversation, a person faces another, and the other person says, Did you do this? And this person says, I swear by Allah, I didn't do it. So the other person says, Okay, I accept. So what does this person think? The person thinks?
I got away with it.
He is such an idiot. He's so clueless. What a full
person thinks that. So he's he thinks he is onto something true. He thinks he's onto something, but he's getting away with it. So Allah says in that verse, you only ever I thought hula hoop Jimmy and he actually formula who can I actually phone and look them? Way I said Munna and Nomada. Che. On the Day when Allah shall resurrect them and they will swear to him just as they swear to you, and they think that they are onto something.
So even with Allah on young Tiama they will swear in the name of Allah lie to Allah and then momentarily think I've got away with it.
He doesn't know.
He doesn't have a clue.
This is this is what the one of whom will think this is the meaning of where someone I know Allah Sri, they think they are on something. This is how deluded and delusional Elia becomes.
This is why the lie shamelessly This is why a lie a lie shames.
One person told me, told me a story once about I've met pathological liars and I'm sure many of you have met serial habitual, pathological liars.
People with Munchausen syndrome.
But that's to some degree innocence because at least Munchausen he just created
fantasies, but some people lie maliciously. So, hypochondriacs,
hypochondriacs by proxy, people suffering from Munchausen syndrome.
People inclined to pathologically lying for no reason, sick lies at times. One person related the story to me so there was a gathering once all Muslims.
And there was a 40 over 40 year old person sitting there, all middle aged senior.
And he was lying and lying and lying fantastic stories about himself and his experiences
in the realms of fantasy.
And he's carrying on carrying on so the one person, one brother, he took him to the side and I said to him, by Allah, I implore you, I implore you in the name of Allah. Look, if you cannot help but lie, at least lie reasonably.
Because your stories are fantastical, everyone's laughing at you from within. And not only that, we are embarrassed on too embarrassed when embarrassed listening to your own team embarrassed. So the person said He giggled and he said, Look, I can't help it.
He giggled and he said, I can't help it's it was a grown up man over 40 giggled and said, I can't help it says smart habits. She said, Look, if you are going to lie, at least lie reasonably, because of listening to your lies, we are embarrassed on to embarrassed so this is the point I make such lie as they feel no shame whatsoever. We are embarrassed listening to their lies, but they were the flat Pokerface they can just persist and continue.
So swearing in the name of law whilst lying is the pure trait of a monastic. And it's such it's so integral to their nature, that they will do it before Allah on Yama.
And then Allah ends that verse by saying, Allah in the womb is that with Ali who will shape on for unsound Nicola will Hizbul shape on Allah in His mache, Bonnie who will pass it on, that
the devil has overwhelmed them
and cause them to forget the remembrance of Allah.
This is the party of shape.
And lo it is a party of shape on who are the losers. So his book shaytaan in the Quran, actually refers to them on ethical Hizbul shape on the party of the devil in the Quran, refers to the hypocrites and one article.
So this is one of their, they're always swearing in the Name of Allah, they can't just say, Oh, this is what happened. They have to swear in the name of Allah, false oaths false testimonies.
And what happens with false testimonies last Cranham with Allah says, A man whom Jinnah? Why do they swear so falsely in the name of Allah? Again, short term gain, it's all about short term gain. They don't see anything but
a few feet before them, nothing else.
So Allah subhanho wa taala, Allah says, they have taken the oath as shields shields for what shields to protect themselves, their wealth and their property. That's all that concerns
and that's why in that same set of verses which I just mentioned, Allah says, it doesn't do a man 100 of them for Sunday morning civilian,
full of whom are the more than 200 of them what are allowed men alleging
they have taken their oaths as a shield, and thus they have prevented from the way of Allah for them is a humiliating punishment, lengthening out all
their wealth and their children will not protect them from Allah will not avail them of anything.
And shield for what just self preservation to protect their wealth and their property and their meager gains. And this is exactly what the one afternoon did in the interim one hour with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, why does Allah say for Cebu and suddenly
they This prevented from the wave law, same thing, one thing leads to another so
we should be very faithful this because when a person sins, each sin leads to upset subsequence
True and False URLs,
lead a person away from the path of Allah.
And this facade to answer be the law they prevent it from the way of Allah doesn't refer to others or just them it refers to both. So they have led themselves away from the path Path of Allah and they've led others away from the path of Allah. This is why in another verse of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, well as a man, bein accom for the Zilla, or the Mombasa Cebu you have to do so the master documents
will look Madaba Marlene,
what are the start we'll be adding ly feminine kalila
in the Marina de la Hill Hayden look them in kuntum tharla Moon Mar in the commune for the Omar in de la Heba. Well in that z in the Lydian of sub cinema can we I'm alone, Allah says addressing the believers, do not take your OLS
the hilum means entry ism, I do not take your O's as a means to making your way amongst each other.
Do not make your Oles.
A treachery amongst yourselves. Why? What's the punishment that Allah mentions? Allah doesn't just mention the punishment of the earth.
That's not the end of the verse. Welcome either Obama or Lehman for you is a great and immense punishment. Now, prior to that, Allah says, Do not take your OLS as a means of treachery and betrayal and deception amongst yourselves. Lest and this is a punishment in the dunya for the Zilla, or the Mombasa, whoo hoo ha, lest a foot slips after its steadfastness, which means that previously, even if you were steadfast upon your religion, your line and your false oath will cause you to slip in religion, even though whether to you are actually quite steadfast.
This is a meaning officer who wants to be law by swearing false oaths. By line, the person causes oneself to slip from the path of law,
and then not to slip oneself
but to prevent others and that's where the verse continues, for the Zilla for the members of the ward, they are less of foot slips, after it's steadfastness, what the thought was Su OB ma so that to answer be it Allah And lest you then taste the punishment,
because you have prevented from the way of alarm meaning preventing others because when others non Muslims see
a believer line
breaking their pledges, swearing false O's,
the unbeliever, the non Muslim will think, Is this Islam?
Is this the Muslim? Is this what is religion teaches and I have no interest in this religion.
So we would have been guilty of being the impediment and obstruction to others coming to the way of law because of our lying and our falsehoods.
And that's not the character of a movement. It's a character of a mafia.
And that's what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Here is a man on Jana, for some brands, they have taken their old as a shield, and thus they prevent others from the weight.
In navamsa, Mr. Gan we Amadon
indeed, evil is what they do.
Then the verse says that it could be in the home. This is the last verse for today that it could be in the home arm and with McAfee total, for Toby Allah who will be confirmed I have gone this is because Allah still refers to the hypocrite someone after all. This is because they believed I openly, supposedly, from McAfee, then they disbelieved meaning they persisted in their disbelief, because most many of them didn't believe at all. Some of them actually did believe but they were plagued by doubt. So what would they do? They believe disbelieve, believe disbelieve.
But here last weeks, but many of them they never ever believed their claim to believe in the sort of last law highly was almost false. So they said we believe in you, but our task they remain disbelievers. So they persisted in their disbelief. This doesn't mean that I'm on with a microphone. This is because they believed apparently. Then they disbelieved I persisted in that disbelief. So what happened for two
be either Ruby him from life Cahoon so it's Well, there was a seal puts on their hearts. How? Same thing, cumulative effects, doesn't the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam saying the Hadith, when a person sins as a.on the heart when a person sins again there's another dot. And these dots accumulate until they cover the heart with a layer just like the layer of rust over metal. And this is what Allah refers to in the Quran colourable around Allah Kuru.
Ne This is what accumulated as rust over their hearts because of what they used to do.
we again, we should be very careful, we shouldn't think allies innocence or false promises innocent. Each of these
adds momentum to the subsequent one makes the subsequent one easier. And they have a cumulative effect. And over time, a person's heart become seal.
So one can only go in one direction
and we do that of ourselves. That's why Allah says in that verse, Now I'm in human error the law Allah in our Dan unfortunately, he understood the unknown and the common name in a slot Levine, for whom And fourthly he was the willow who was known for our computer could all be Himalayan we are gonna have a colorful luck. Now I do. What can we actually boom, Allah says, and there were those of them, they sincerely actually.
There were those of them who and there are of them those who pledged to Allah, that if Allah gives us of His Bounty, or your wealth, we will surely give him charity and we will surely be good of the good and pious people. So when Allah did give them of His Bounty wanted, they do but little bit, they were stingy, they're off miserly with the gift and bounty of Allah. And they turned away from Allah on their promise, whilst being neglectful and heedless. So what did Allah do in punishment? All they did is make a false promise.
All they did is break their pledge to Allah.
All they did was lie. So what did Allah do? Even before Africa, for our baboon, the Falcon, if you could obey him, Allah gave them hypocrisy in the wake of their deeds, because they broke the promise they made to Allah and because of their line, so they're lying. And they're breaking their pledge is what actually created in the follow up and hypocrisy in their hearts, which remained and persisted till young.
So this isn't we create this rust, and this hypocrisy and this iniquity and corruption in the heart through our own deeds. So this is the meaning of furtopia rule, the hem
seal was placed in their hearts for home life bones, so they do not understand which means that's what happens. At the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, he would recite the Quran to them. Can you imagine Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reciting Quran to the congregation from his noble member from his place of Salah in mystery the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa salam.
And those words, not penetrating the heart, in the masjid. But that's what happened for him live.
Because they couldn't understand that layer. That veil was so thick over their heart, that even the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could not penetrate
this is why Subhan Allah
It's remarkable one of the observations is
people often say to me, Look, can you speak to him
and advise him in the name of Allah and his little salsa Lulla on equal Sunday, or in the name of religion?
The observation is this that many people
their hearts and minds are already open.
They are humble.
The hearts and minds are open.
So you don't need to say much to them.
you don't have to say much at all. They understand. When words reach them they except
so the opposite
Vation is almost always we are preaching to the converted.
Those who come and who listen, are the ones who want to learn, whose hearts and minds are open
and they invite the words of Allah and Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam into their hearts among others. I don't mean those who don't attend. I just mean in general some people are such
that no matter what you say to them
later in the surah Allah subhanho wa Taala says, what you are feeling to Allah, it's the Phil looking Rasul Allah Hello Whoa, Psalm 108, the homie is gonna Homestuck
when it's said to them, Come,
Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam will do is that far for you? And seek Allah's forgiveness on your behalf?
Low world also whom they turn their heads
what I eat the home your saloon, and you see them preventing and blocking. One was stuck the room whilst being arrogant Imams, Sofia and when he was relating this, he actually said to his students who asked him about this verse, LOL also home So Imam Sofian did this. He
swung his head to one side and stared with beady eyes. And he said this is what they used to do. So whence it was suggested to them on African very humbly come Rasul Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam will do is the far fee they will actually do this.
We don't want as a stiffer
And in another verse, what either so arrogance is not the character of a monument. It's a character of a monographic as Allah describes the turn away and they block walls that belong whilst being arrogant. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in another verse what you the thief
tequila with our leader Lucha Tila aka The TL is a Tamil ethnic for high school Jen and well a bit send me have Allah says when it's a set to him this individual if that Allah fear Allah be wary of Allah, what does he do?
A normal person, one whose hearts and mind are open. What do they do? When someone says fear Allah
it makes them think
they feel embarrassed, ashamed.
That's a good person, a normal person.
So when someone says to them block feel,
it makes them think but others what you they are dealing with the pillar when it is said to him fear Allah. What happens after that will is terrible if
arrogant seizes him in sin.
Arrogance seizes him in sin. So when you tell someone fear Allah,
because of that, because of that veil,
on their minds on their heart, their reaction isn't are fearing Allah, what you're saying.
I should fear Allah. So he only provokes them into a worst reaction, he only compounds a problem.
He only makes things worse.
So Allah says, when it is said to him, fear Allah instead of making him humble, his reaction is one of arrogance, arrogance ceases in in sin. So he says further, good example is human body and others will relate to that. Once there were two men, they argued amongst themselves, somewhat so that the swore at each other. So one of them was very angry. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
I know something, I know a word which if he wants to say that word, all of this anger would disappear.
So that those words where are all the we learn the sheep?
Prophets Allah Allah is was looking. So the Sahaba you went to him and said
Now it's obvious that he was coming from the Sunnah Allah salAllahu alayhi salam because he was within viewing distance he was observing him.
So that is one word. If you were to utter that word, all of your anger would dissipate. That will be lurking in a shape one over a gene which is I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed devil shade long.
So the man said, Do you think I'm mad?
Do you think I'm mad?
And wonder ration? Do you think there's a shake on with me?
Do you think I'm mad?
So that will Mr. Say, we don't know who it is. But most likely this was because only we have been in one outfit,
who rejected the advice of Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam, and reacted in the worst manner. That's a perfect definition of when it is said to him feel a lot, a little easier to build if arrogant seizes him in sin. So as I was saying, the observation is this, that those on whose hearts and minds there isn't a layer of rust, they are already open to the words of Allah and His salts Allah ani Salam, it doesn't take much to advise them. But others
well, what can you say there's only a limit to which you can go.
you, you take the name of Allah who is of a social Allahu Allahu Salam, and their reaction is worse. They say we are believers we believe in Allah and he's rasool Allah Allah. But their reaction is something different altogether. And one of the reasons is for home life button because they do not understand nothing penetrates. If Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has word for words of advice as a living person in their emits what speaking to them could not penetrate their heart, and how can we expect our mayor conveying his words now, being able to penetrate the hearts of those who's who have layer upon layer
through their own deeds, so this is a meaning offer to be added gluten from life Cahoon there is a CEO has been placed on their hearts so they do not understand. I pray that Allah subhanho with Allah enable us to understand, may Allah protect us from the characteristics and the traits of hypocrisy.
May Allah make us amongst the true mountain the norm
will follow in the footsteps of Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam was in the likeness of an Arab that he would have suited to be in agreement. While the user engagement ends panicle law and more behind the condition of Allah. He learned the stuff we're going to make
