Ibrahim in Needham with
respect to listeners
we continue with the topic of the traits of hypocrisy
especially by all fronts studying the verses of the Holy Quran.
Last week, I began commenting on
the earliest verses
of the Holy Quran, right at the beginning, which deal with the topic of the hypocrites in Medina to one on one
just to recap the three four verses that we did. Allah subhanho wa Taala says woman and nasty man you're older Armen Abdullah he will be Yeoman fairy or mountain meaning.
You ha the rune Allah who will Lavina Armand OMA for that Renee lamb for some of them, I assure
you could all be muddled on the hula marathon, whatever marathon at even midnight can we actually born
of the people and of the people there are those who say we have believed in Allah and in the final day,
and they are not believes
they attempt to deceive Allah
and those who have believed
and yet they do not deceive anyone but themselves.
And they don't even realize
in their hearts is a sickness.
Sort of like increase them
in sickness and for them as a painful punishment because they would lie.
I covered these verses in some detail. And we are actually in the middle of discussing the next verse.
In which Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, What about the Allahu Allah to say it will fill up all in the man room. And when it is said to them, Do not spread corruption on earth,
do not be corrupt on Earth.
They reply by saying,
we are only reforms.
We are only reforms. So I was commenting on this verse. Before I continue.
I'd like to mention a few things which I didn't last week.
And these details are important to understand the context of these verses. First of all, last person who were there that is speaking in these verses, primarily
about those hypocrites, who were in the city of Medina during the time of the Prophet sallallahu. It was.
So this is actually
primarily a description of those. But there are lessons for us today.
That if these are the characteristics,
and the behaviors and traits,
and the habits of those hypocrites,
then these are the very things that we need to be wary of, and that we need to ensure that we refrain from
another thing is, although I keep on saying these are the traits of hypocrisy,
it doesn't necessarily mean that anyone who is guilty of any one of these sins
Any one of these misdeeds automatically becomes a hypocrite or should be regarded as a hypocrite.
So lying is probably the most famous trait of hypocrisy.
But it doesn't mean everyone who loves instantly becomes a hypocrites.
Deception is a trait of hypocrisy. It doesn't mean that if someone commits the sin of deception,
they automatically become a moron outfit.
But we have been warmed by Allah and His or salsa, Allah Allah He was telling me that these are the characteristics and traits of hypocrisy.
Furthermore, no one has the knowledge and the ability to actually label anyone hypocrite.
conflicts between the interior and the exterior.
And the ultimate hypocrisy is about disbelief in heart, but belief on the tip of the tongue.
So how can anyone know the secrets of the heart? Only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows.
So although people like to turn to each other and in anger,
in argument, people often accuse one another of being hypocrites.
But ultimately, true hypocrisy, only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows because only he is aware of the secrets of the heart. So formally, you can't label anyone and will nerfed.
Because that's to suggest that you know the state of their heart.
It doesn't mean you can't use the word hypocrites at all. Because if your PA cracy
is being used to
define and denote a mismatch between words and deeds.
So if someone keeps on saying, I promise, I will do this, and they never do it,
and there's no valid excuse. And someone then says, Well, you're a hypocrite for saying you will do it, but you're never doing it.
Because the person isn't referring to the greater hypocrisy, which is disbelief in heart, but rather is using harsh words to point out a mismatch and incongruency between the claims and words and verbal promises of this person and their actual deeds, then this is slightly different to the charge of great hypocrisy, which only Allah spammable with Allah knows. So in any case, this clarification is important that if anyone is guilty of any of these sins, it doesn't automatically rendom render them and will now fit and nor should we say that anymore.
But Allah and these are a source of the law where it was still it was warnings are there. And as I explained in great detail last week, the warning is that if you persist with these sins, because these are the traits of hypocrisy, how do you know that they won't push you into the realm of true hypocrisy with Allah, you won't know. Others won't know the creation won't know. But Allah subhanho wa Allah knows, and we will only realize in the Arcor
we may continue to live talk, dress as believers, but only Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah knows our true consequence and found destiny.
to continue with the commentary of this verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says we're either lead a local lab to see to fill out or in demand.
And remember Allah has speaking specifically and primarily about the hypocrites and the mana for all in Medina from Allah. So one of the other traits was what they would do that would do quite a few things. So Allah says of them that when they would be advised by fellow by Muslims, by believers or sometimes even by family members,
and when he was said to them a lot of Sidhu Phil
does not make mischief on Earth do not spread corruption do not create corruption on earth.
So I began last week by explaining before we actually went
Another time that what's meant by corruption here what's meant by the word facade in this context? Well, facade means corruption. And corruption can be in many forms. You can have the corruption of morals or corruption of decency, the corruption of deeds, the corruption of speech, the corruption of power and influence, corruption of wealth. All of this is included. And the hypocrites would do a lot.
Since Of course, they faked believe they faked piety.
So as soon as they would find an opportunity
when they wouldn't have to
keep up an appearance keep up pretenses,
maintain that mask and that facade, then they would
regress into their original behavior, of sin of corruption of iniquity or whatever form.
So they weren't guilty of many sins, because their claim of faith and their piety was all fake.
So, let me comment on this aspect first, corruption is in sin. So when he was said to them Do not make mischief do not create corruption or you do not commit sins.
Because sin ones
are parts of corruption, sins cause corruption, sin spread corruption.
When people commit some sins, though the harms and the consequences the ill consequences of those sins are not restricted to the individual. But they spread and they extend
and at times, the corruption of people's sins affects everyone.
Allah says in the Quran, the halal facade of really badly will bow Marchesa, but at the nuns, facade corruption has appeared on the land and in the sea.
As a result
of the deeds that people have committed.
So, what people do,
causes and creates corruption to appear, even in in the sea, even in the land and the sea by the very words of Allah subhanho wa taala.
So, the harms that you will consequences of sin
humans, animals, society, nature, land and sea.
So when it was said to the hypocrites do not commit sins,
their reply was in the man and honestly
what US committed sins? No, in fact, we are good.
We are good.
We are good people.
We are the reformers. We are the reformists. We are the ones who are actually doing good. So this is one of the most infamous characteristics of the original hypocrites, and there's a danger if we follow suit.
If we are ever taught if we are guilty of wrongdoing and this is where I more or less left off last week.
We all make mistakes.
In a hadith khulumani Adam, why in the world,
every child of Adam, all the children of Adam, Colonia them, all the children of Adam meaning every single one of them is a sin.
and apart means excessive sin. It's a superlative. It's not hard but meaning someone who makes mistakes have bought superlative is an excessive frequent incessant wrongdoer and syndrome. That's true of every human being will make mistakes all the time.
Why you will
kappa in the weapon and the best of the sinners are those who tend to align repentance.
That's human nature. We make mistakes, we sin
we do wrong.
We are not for perfect we are far from every single one of us.
But what Allah subhanho wa Taala add our lives in his creation are those
who though they make mistakes are humbled by their mistakes, who though they frequently fall into wrong
they instantly and immediately come to realization
as Allah says in the verse
that when they learn enforcer
when they have wronged their own souls, because when a person commits a sin, yes, the corruption the harm that will consequence affects everything. But ultimately, they do not harm anyone more than they harm themselves.
So when they run themselves, what happens to them, the Corolla, faster, thoroughly the moonbeam when you feel the Nova in Allah
that when they do wrong, they remember Allah.
And then they seek forgiveness for their sins, and who forgive sins other than Allah.
What am you sue Allama Farrell, and nor are they persistent in what they do. The meaning of persistence is
someone makes a mistake. Now when I'm talking about mistakes and sins, I mean, across the spectrum. So even mistakes that aren't sins.
So when someone makes a mistake,
and they are then taught, well, they realize and it's made cleared.
So now they do realize, what do they do? They apologize.
They make it clear that they won't repeat that mistake.
And they genuinely come to a realization.
They seek forgiveness from the creation, they seek forgiveness from the Create.
At times, they may inadvertently without realizing,
make the same mistake again.
they don't do it deliberately. They don't do it with persistence. And it may take I'm talking about mining mistakes, I'm not talking about sins. And it may take a bit of time for them to get rid of that bad habits.
And if the mistakes are major mistakes, ie sins, and they don't just affect a person's relationship with the creation but rather a last panel with Allah. Then again, Allah says what happens they come to a realization they seek Allah's forgiveness they do though, but they do it's that far.
And then we'll have musu Adama Fargo they do not persist in such behavior, while Niada moonwalks knowing they don't knowingly persist in such behavior.
This is why repentance as many R's
Resolve, never to return and to repeat,
return to and repeat that same mistake.
Without all these R's of true genuine remorse and regret for the past.
Refraining from that same behavior
and without a real resolve never to return to such behavior and never to repeat it in the future.
And without realisation without these things that person's doba is insincere, incomplete and irrelevant.
And without that realization without that genuine remorse
Without refraining from that sin,
a person will continue to do that same thing repeatedly again and again. That's the SR that Allah refers to that they knowingly remain persistent in that same.
last panel with Allah only accepts a Boba have such people who are sincere in their repentance otherwise.
Without the prerequisites of genuine true repentance, last panel data won't forgive that person and this, this is why there's a common misunderstanding. People think that there are certain things which forgive sins, which forgives all sins, which forgives minor sins, not major sins.
Salah forgives sins, minor sins, not major sins.
Every major sin has to be repented for individually. One.
Hedge may forgive
mistakes and sins between a person and Allah.
But they don't
forfeit the rights of others. So if someone has taken money from someone still owes them money, they can perform 40 hedge every single year for 40 years. But at the end of 40 years, they still owe someone that same amount of money and they won't be forgiven for it.
Surprisingly, some people do actually believe that hedge sheds everything including lungs. And that's
another common mistake is, for instance, Islam forgives everything person embraces Islam, it gives everything. However,
if they persist
in wrong behavior.
If they persist with the same sins and the same wrongful behavior that they were responsible for before, it's
the words of the heavy fall, they will actually be held to account for whatever happened in the past as well as now.
It's not a game
whereby someone thinks that Oh, I did something wrong. Fine. Let me start again.
Do something wrong again, fine. Let me start again.
It's not again, we can't keep on resetting, rebooting, restarting
and cleaning out the cache of sin.
Allah subhanho wa Taala will seize a person and hold them to account and make them answer for and hold them responsible for every single instance of that sin, regardless of when it was committed. If the person's repentance is not sincere.
So going back to the verse when someone tells us that look,
don't do this. You're making a mistake. This is wrong. Don't do that.
A hypocrite reacts
next negatively. Arrogance dismissively.
The hypocrite refuses to accept that's a trait of hypocrisy.
And Walkmen, a believe
receives is receptive, receives accents, listens attentively.
And if they are genuinely wrong, they come to that realization.
And when they come to that realization, they resolve never to repeat that thing again.
That's a behavior of a mob.
But someone else if it
then an ever since and always and will nerf it reacts.
It says to them, don't do this. I'm not doing anything. It's not wrong. I'm not doing anything wrong.
In another verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, what you need a law, that the law the tool is to be
that when it is said to him fear Allah be conscious of Allah be wary of Allah.
What's his response? after that?
Hello there is to build if
arrogance in sin ceases him. arrogance in sin ceases him. What's the meaning of that? It's this, the person is not bothered
about whether they are doing right or wrong, whether they are committing a sin or not. That's not what bothers them. What bothers them is their ego. So if someone points out to them, that you shouldn't be doing this fear Allah, rather than look at the wrong that they are doing and the hurt that they are causing.
Their first and foremost reaction is
the person's telling me
the ego is bruised.
That arrogance is perfect.
That's what concerns them more than anything else.
So arrogance seizes them not realisation not humility, arrogance, and not just normal arrogance, but arrogance and sin.
So the person becomes defiant, not humble defined.
So what's the solution for such a person? How do you deal with such a person? How do you make them realize? Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah tells us at the end of the verse
so what's the verse? What you are feeling that they love? When it is said to him fear Allah? Or the tool is to bill if arrogance in sin ceases him? So then what's the solution? Allah says fastball Janam
Janam is sufficient for
there probably isn't any solution
so this is the behavior of a monad
when it's a set to him
Do not commit wrong. Do not commit sins, do not make mischief do not spread do not create do not cause corruption.
The Mona Lisa clean van and ever since and has always reacted with the words in a man normalcy home,
as commit sins as create corruption. No, no, no. In fact, it's the total opposite in the magnanimous, their own. We are the Reformers we are the only ones who are doing good.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala then says, Allah Imnaha Humann have said, what Akela Sharon Lowe, they verily they they are the characters, but they don't realize.
This is what happens when a person is arrogant. When a person is corrupt of character. They see truth whether it's false and false, or whether it's true vice where there is virtue, virtue, whether is vice.
They see corruption, whether it's character and character, whether it's corruption,
the total opposite of everything. They see piety
where there is sin, and sin whether it's ponte.
Allah subhanho wa taala, Allah says, they, indeed they they are the corrupters but they don't realize
another manifestation of the corruption of the hypocrites at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam apart from their personal corruption of committing sins was that they would
try to fit in with the believers.
they would also
try to be just like and try to fit in with and try to please the enemies of Rasul Allah. So Allah already he was and the believers
and of course that created chaos.
So some people will tell them that don't do this. And this is another aspect another manifestation of their corruption, that they will try to be friendly and good with everybody.
Now, that may seem like a noble thing indeed for persons polite and courteous, yes, but not being too faced.
and they were to face.
So they would come to the believers and say we are with you.
We support you, we are one of you.
And then they would go back to their
to others who were the enemies of Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam, they would open to tell them we are with you. And when others would see this, they would tell them why are you doing this this causes corruption. This causes chaos. This is facade in itself. They would say in the magnanimous, their own. We are trying to reconcile both parties. We are reformist meaning we are trying to reconcile both part.
So Allah says Allah in the home of say don't know that they are the corruptors. Such behaviors such to face Agnus. Such dishonesty will not lead to reconciliation, or harmony, it actually leads to further discord and strife, further corruption, further enmity and greater distance, because there's so much lying deception and insincerity involved. And that's what they will do. In another verse, Allah subhanho wa taala, Allah describes them as with the being in the vein of vernick, La Ilaha, Illa. Allah, they are hovering in between, neither are they with these people, nor are they with those people.
this is another sign another trait of hypocrisy.
Which is that a person tries not to please Allah the Creator, but tries to please a whole of creation.
What will happen, it's impossible to please every one.
It's impossible to tell everybody what they want to hear.
Because there is lying involved, that is deception.
And every time a person tells another person what they want to hear, they will lie.
And that is probably the greatest traits of hypocrisy.
And you will never be able to please everyone.
We ourselves don't know what we want, all the time. One minute, we want this.
The next minute, we want something else.
The next minute, we want a third thing, we are unable to please ourselves, how in laws, one individual is unable to please themselves?
How is that same person going to be able to please everybody else all the time, it's impossible.
And when we attempt to do
we have to put on a facade we have to pretend we have to lie. We have to cheat, deceive.
These are all the traits of hypocrisy and what men does not and then what men cannot behave like that.
And what means stands for something.
And what men has principles and what men has credentials
and what men is honest and transparent.
And what men actually says, This is what I believe, this is what I think this is who I am, this is how I
this is what I stand for. This is what I support.
This is what I believe in.
does not and actually by his very character cannot
say different things to different people at different times. About his beliefs, his opinions,
preferences, his position, his stance.
He belongs to someone he belongs to the group of what we mean. He belongs to the group of believers.
They they have their color
and what's their color?
Symbol what the law the color of Allah.
That's their color.
They aren't chameleons
changing color all the time depending on who they were.
That's what the Earth would do.
And then when African fall they were brilliant, that we are so good. We are reformers we the best. Why are we the best we the most intelligent, the most enlightened
The most progressive because we are good with everyone. We we are good with Muhammad and his followers. We are good with the
others. So Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says of them with the beaner been Evonik La Ilaha illa Allah, they are hovering in between, neither are they with these nor with those. And that's the truth. If you try to be with everyone, no one will trust you know, when you with no one and everyone will see
people will have more respect for you. If you
nail your colors to mass, if you make your position clear, and if you adhere to that stance, they may disagree with you, but they will respect you. Just as at the beginning of Surah Bacara. Allah subhanho wa Taala devotes three verses to the believers.
And then Allah devotes two verses to those who never believed at the time of the Prophet sallallahu claims.
And then Allah devotes 13 verses to them on African. I said 12 last week that was meaning eight till 10. But if you include the eighth verse, And that's 13 In total, so Allah subhanahu wa at the ANA devotes 13 verses to the hypocrites why, because respect to the believers, their position is clear. Those who didn't believe their position was also clear.
if you try to be with everyone,
no one will trust you. And just you may think that I am here I am there but Allah subhanho wa Taala says himself neither with these nor with those.
If you try to be with everybody, you will be regarded as being with nobody.
And that's a trait of Amana.
So far, this is what the hypocrites would say, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, when it was said to them, Look,
don't do this. Don't pretend to be with these and with those, they would say no man.
We are but reformers we are doing good we are but those who are trying to reconcile Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah says, Allah in the Horn of Saddam, well, I can lie. Sure, all low they verily they they are the characters, but they don't read.
So this is another trait of hypocrisy.
So two traits in this verse number one.
When a person makes mistakes, or commits a sin, and that's pointed out to them, what do they do?
they don't react and reject, they realize.
And they reform, they repent, they repair, they rectify.
They resolve never to repeat it.
That's what I'm what mint does. But someone or FIP, reacts, reacts in defiance reacts and arrogance, reacts and then rejects, rejects any suggestion that they are doing wrong. And that's in mistakes, and that's in sins. Not only that, they then twist their sin and make it appear to be a virtue.
Last parameter with Allah says regardless, irrespective of what they say, they are the characters. And the second kind of corruption, which is a trait of hypocrisy in this verse is that the munaf it pretends to be with everyone when if it stands for nothing.
And when Africa's two faced, and what mean is not two faced,
and to face Agnus, going to this person, telling them what they want to hear going to that person, telling them what they want to hear. This is what causes chaos on chaos and corruption.
In the short term, it may seem better, but in the long term, it's harmful for everyone. And similarly, when a mock Minh is honest, and a mock Minh says what needs to be said in the immediate term, it may seem harmful, but by Allah in the long term, it's far far better for everyone.
There's no chaos, there's no corruption.
Moving on to the next verse, Allah Subhana Allah Allah says
will either be the lone arm in Goma Amman and now it's all a nightmare knock him out. I'm gonna suffer her in sofa her what?
Again, primarily Allah is speaking of the hypocrites at the time.
The Prophets Allah Allah Allah
when he was sent to them believe
as a people have been
and the people meaning the Sahaba or the Allahu anhu, the companions the true sincere believers.
So when he was sent to the hypocrites look, Believe as the people have believed. Now, they had already professed belief by tongue. So what's the meaning of believe it become genuine sincere believes
should stop all this hypocrisy.
So when it was suggested to them when it was said to them Believe as the people have believed in the people meaning a will,
of man ID
Ashuelot animal Bashara the 10 promise Jana,
all of the Sahaba or the Allahu Anhu. They are the people being referred to here. Do you know what the hypocrites would say? When it was said to them believe as the Sahaba the companions the people around the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have believed
from the youngest to the oldest, the June the most junior to the most senior, including Abu Bakr and Omar radi, Allahu Allah and Houma. The hypocrites would say amongst themselves
and not me, no come on a sofa. Should we believe as the fools have believed? They call the Sahaba or the Allah on him sofa ha.
This is another trait of hypocrisy
to laugh at those who believe
to laugh at those who are trying to do good
to consider those who are trying to please Allah as fools.
That's not the behavior of a motmot
It's the behavior of a mafia
and what may or may not be an angel and what may or may not be Perth
and Willa, he.
There are many cases
all over the world, sinners, wrongdoers.
Who, when it's pointed out to them, that look at the kind of person you are.
It's remarkable. It's remarkable. Such people do you know how they've responded? Well lie many, many personal cases that people have related to me unbelievable.
The person is known to be corrupt, sinful in different ways. And when it said to them, this is how you are this is what you've done. Is this what you like? You know what the responses, the person lowers their head in shame, weeps, genuine, sincere tears, and says, Look, I know I am wrong.
I know, I know, I'm not good. Pray for me. Please pray for
that recognition, that realisation would lead them to the path of repentance. It will.
Because they're not defined. They're not arrogant.
And such people, they may not be good themselves, but they see the good in others.
Mentioned the story a few weeks ago
of the leader of a nation
president of a whole country.
He came before one of our great scholars.
And he sat in front of him in his presence
in the state of the shuffle with meaning respectfully.
And this old scholar
pointed out something to him.
And this was the president, the leader of a whole nation, with his entourage next to him.
And what was his response? He bowed his head in shame. And he said, hazard, meaning your eminence, this is a weakness in me please pray for me.
And that wasn't any Jack the lad off the streets, who was a leader the whole nation who was publicly told
by a great scholar. But look, why don't you do this? Why don't you fulfill the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam.
And his response, even though he was publicly told, lowered his head in shame, and with great humility, he said, Your Eminence.
This is a weakness in me. Please pray for me.
So such people
they see good in others. They don't regard Eman.
As foolish, they don't regard piety as foolish. They don't regard observance of the laws of Allah and His religion and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam as being foolish.
They see that as a virtue they see that as
though they may not be able to do it themselves. But they recognize that this is the way of Allah. This is the way he sort of social allottee.
it's common, this is one of the most again, this is one of the most infamous traits of hypocrisy, mocking, joking, laughing, poking fun
at the believers, poking fun at those who do good.
And that will come in the next few verses
and to regard others as being foolish.
In a hadith raised by Muslim Rahmatullah Haley, from Abdullah nuestro, little the Allahu and it said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked by someone yeah rasool Allah.
The context is arrogance.
So the man said Ya rasool Allah, a man lacks his clothes, his shoes,
his appearance, his carriage, his mind, all to be good to look at
is this arrogance.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said No, Allah has beautiful Allah loves beat.
Person dresses well,
that's not arrogance.
If a person adores themselves, that's not arrogance.
If a person has a good
horse, a good car, that's not arrogance.
True, because that's exactly what the man has.
It's not arrogance to dress. Well. It's not arrogance to look well. It's not arrogance to present yourself well.
Allah is beautiful love speech.
But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, but arrogance is pride is bottler will help him to NAS, the defiance of the truth and holding people in contempt.
That arrogance, where you look down on others. That's how that's pride.
So what are those who looked down on the good and the pious? What are those who laugh at and who are contemptuous of the good and the pious.
That is not the behavior of men. That's a behavior of
law says, why the
nurse and when it's set to them Believe as the people have believed, and the people meaning Abubaker, or models man or the in the Sahaba, it will be Allah. The munaf goon would react immediately by saying, I'm not gonna come I'm gonna suffer her should we believe as the fools have believed?
So in their view,
the Sahaba of the Allah Arnhem were fools.
that trait of hypocrisy continues.
someone wishes to practice, someone wishes to pray. someone wishes to be good. Someone who wishes to dress modestly.
People laugh and make fun of them poke fun
people who claim to believe in love and is that a source of Lulla Heidi who settled them in one breath, and in the very next breath, they laugh at the ways of Allah is the source of Allah Almighty.
If you cannot observe a sunnah that's your choice. Do not laugh.
At the sunnah or those who observed the sun
that's their love for a suit Allah
because this is not the behavior of a motmot
this is the behavior of a monarch.
The Munna effect regards believers, the pious, the virtuous, and the humble has been foolish.
Didn't the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say
there are many individuals who are disheveled, unkempt in appearance, who are rejected and driven away from the doors, covered in dust.
They mean nothing to the people. Lo axamer Allah Allah in the above era, if that individual was to swear in the name of Allah, Allah would not allow that oath to go and fulfill.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was seated with the Sahaba the ALLAH
and a man walk past Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he was a humble person. He said, What do you say of this man? He walked past? How about the Allah Who knew who
was a simple man?
They said the Rasul Allah
is, I'm paraphrasing the hadith is simple person of humble status of humble stock. When he speaks, nobody listens.
No, nobody will follow his command.
If he asks for someone to hand in marriage,
it would not be accepted. So his proposal would not even be accepted.
Sorry, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, yeah.
And before him, sorry, another man who passed.
And so what do you say of this man?
The leader of his people.
When he speaks, he is liable to be heard and listened to. When he commands he is liable to be obeyed. And if he ever asks for someone have someone's hand in marriage, for how to use a young guy, then he is worthy of being married off, meaning people will never reject his proposal rather, they will rush to marry him and getting married.
When the other man walked past, and that's what they said on him. Speaking of the humble man, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, By Allah, a world full of that man
sorry, this one man is more beloved to Allah than a world full of the other man.
A World for
how we see people is not how Allah subhanho wa Taala views
I'm delighted no Masaru that the Allahu and do not laugh at anyone.
Yeah, you have Lavina. Amendola is on call me NASA.
Milan is minister in NASA, and you're
in solitary Rajaram, which I've commented on in detail last panel with Allah says, Oh believers, let's not a group of men amongst you mock another group of men, less those who are being mocked are better than the world than the ones who are ridiculing them. And let's not to group of women amongst you mock another group of women. That's those women who are being mocked and ridiculed are better than those who are ridiculing.
Abdullah, he went through that of the Allah one he would say about this verse, By Allah after this verse, I fear even mocking a doc
that was enormous ruderal the Allah
and the same Abdullah who was ruler of the ALLAH and he was very thin
and he had spindly legs.
And he was a personal attendant of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam. He used to carry his water for he used to carry his pillow. He used to carry his sandals. He used to carry his staff.
He used to carry his sewak as well.
he can the tree in the presence of the Sahaba of the Allah Han and Rasul Allah, so Allah Allah Allah He was telling them
to break off twigs for the miswak follow suit Allah Subhan Allah it was. So we climbed up the tree. Everyone was watching him looking at him as he climbed the tree. He had a long cloak, and the wind was blowing. So in the wind when the wind blew, exposed his legs very spindly legs. So it was an odd sight that he is someone climbing up the tree, breaking off twigs from the sea, welcome, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the wind suddenly blew, and in that gust of wind, his cloak flat, and all you could see was his where his spindly legs. So some of those who were present began laughing at him, meaning at the legs it was it was a human instant reaction. They just began laughing not in
contempt, but just the sight, the oddity of the whole experience. So the wind blew, the cloak revealed his spindly legs, and they, some of them laughed. Law. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do not laugh at the legs have you been in a certain mood for by Allah on the day of reckoning, the spindly legs of eveness rule will be heavier and weightier in the scales of law than even mounts are hurt
and even mount or hurt.
Do not laugh at others.
What do we know is their position with the last panel with
Do not laugh at those who are virtuous pious practicing observant.
This is what the month
when it was said to them, Look, you've professed believe by tongue but believe truly with your heart, they would say a Notman Nakama ominous sofa Shall we believe is a fool's of believe they regarded the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu was fools as idiots
men regardless of how he or she may be himself or herself.
Respect piety respects Burj respects the people of virtue and piety
and his humble before
and I'm gonna FIP is arrogant, haughty,
and looks down upon others and holds them in contempt. But even more so, he the munaf it regards the pious, the virtuous, the observant the practicing and the people of faith and believe as being idiots and fools talking like fools and idiots and looking and dressing like fools.
That is not the behavior of
Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, they call others suffer fools. Allah in sofa.
Low they verily they, they are the idiots they are the foods
but they don't.
Because I'm on if it becomes delusional, then when Africa thinks I'm doing good, Allah says He is a corrupt. He doesn't realize the monastic thinks I'm clever and they idiots Allah says He is the idiot. He doesn't know.
To continue with the next verse, what you are living in an animal alo Amman
when they meet those who have believed.
They say we have believed it when the hypocrites would meet with the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu. They would say to them, we are believers just like you were either our local living in Amman Ardell Amman, when they would meet with the believers with those who have believed they would say we have believed to
what you are Hello Illa shell
or in America.
And when they would retreat into seclusion and in privacy with their devils.
So Allah doesn't say when they would meet with the believers, they would say to them, we are believers just like you and then when they would meet with others, they would meet with the enemies of the Messenger of Allah, they would meet with the adversaries they would meet with the other group Allah doesn't use the word other or anything else. Allah you what term does allow us for the others what either hello in our shell thena him
And then they would retreat into seclusion with their shower clean with that devils.
So who were the devils,
with their leaders, with their fellow hypocrites with their fellow enemies and adversaries of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam because Allah says in another verse of the Quran, Waka Jana Ali coolin opinion I do want to share Athena in Seville Jin Yu he back to him it abandons autofill Oh dear Laura, and thus we have made for every prophets, an enemy.
What kind of enemy, enemies have the devils amongst men engine. So Shayateen are to be found not just amongst the jinn, but they are Shayateen amongst mankind, just as Allah says, See, teaches us all our all the rugby nurse, medica nurse, nurse, meaning shot will was worse so Hannah's that we seek refuge in Allah whom we seek His protection from the evil of Allah wa Sua. So Hannah's the whispering retreat.
Allah the US was Sophie, so do the nurse, the one who whispers into the souls and the hearts of men, mineral Jinnah the oneness of men, engine of jinn and men. So these retreating whispers,
these people who cast doubt and aspersion these people who sow seeds of doubt, will step in, say a word and step back. These aren't just the shayateen who are giving you what's ours.
These are humans too.
They are Shayateen amongst ince amongst men.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says when these non African would meet the Sahaba of the Allah on him, they would say to them, and now we can believe just as you have believed Subhan Allah
in privacy, they would say,
you want us to believe like the idiots of believe. You want us to believe like the fools had believed. And then when they would meet the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu, whom they had been calling fools and idiots, they would say to them, we have believed just as you're
not someone ASIP and then what you are Hello Elashi Athena him when they would retreat into seclusion with their devils. They would say to them, our inner American, indeed we are with you.
Indeed, we are with you.
In the man animals, the husband, we're only joking with the others. I said earlier that the vs will come would speak of another trait of them when African forever laughing, joking, poking fun at the believers mocking them ridiculing
in the manor house that has it.
We are with you. Truly we are with you. We're not with them. We're just joking with them. We playing with them.
That's what they would say.
Allah subhana This is the to face cydnus of the winner football. This is again another trait of hypocrisy to face it is
lying. You can never please everybody. You can't tell everyone. I'm with you and with you and with you. How can you you will inevitably lie and cheat and deceive with some.
And he happens in almost everyday situations.
We try to convince every family member that I'm with you. We tried to convince every friend of every group that I'm with you.
I'm not with anyone else.
This is hypocrisy.
We listen to what one person says and we go and tell someone else. And we listen to what they say. And we'll come and tell this person. This has to face it in this we convey the talk of their here and we convey the talk of here then.
This is the meme. This is carrying tales and gossip. This in fact in the meme is very difficult to translate. This is an amoeba and such a person is an Imam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and the man will not enter Jimena a carry your such tales and gossip saying one thing here then one thing they're here that person will never antigen.
He passed by a grave.
And he said to the Sahaba are the two graves and he said to the Sahaba or the Allahu Anhu. These two are being punished in their graves. Well now you're at the burn if he could eat and they aren't being punished for anything major. Amma Bahama Africa analyze things the hormonal bowl
What on earth are forgotten I am sheep in the Mima. As for one of them, he was careful. He was careless about purity in heart and hygiene in cleanliness when he would urinate. And the other
Fergana yam sheep in the minima, he would carry in the meme. And this is an amoeba, you go to one party and you say, You know what, I'm with you.
And when they share something, the person takes that to the other party and says, Oh, you know, he said this, he said that she said this, she said,
this is damaging, and the mom will never enter Jannah never
way luckily humans at Lomasa wo be unto every homeless. Luminesce homeless. And one of the definitions of homeless is such a person who doesn't Amina who carries tails, who listens to this person goes and tells the other what they said. Listen to what they say comes in repeats that to them. They try to please everybody convince everybody that I'm with you.
This is the this is a trait of NIFA and hypocrisy, not the trait of Emaar not the traits of a mob.
And that's what the monarch would do. They wouldn't when they would meet the believers they would say we have believed just like you and when they would meet and retreat and seclusion with their own whom Allah call che our queen that devils shell Tina him, they're devils, they will say in all they would say we are with you.
In American in the manor homestead zoom. Indeed we are with you we are but joking. Laughing mocking playing jesting with the others.
So what does what's Allah's response to that? Allah who used to has it will be him?
Allah, his mocking them.
Allah who use that as it will be him. Allah is mocking them. Ha, meaning the joke's on them.
The joke is on them.
They think they are deceiving everyone. They are the ones in deception. They think others are idiots. They are the idiots they think others are fools they are the fools. They think the joke is on others, the joke is on them. They think they are actually laughing at others.
Everyone will soon be laughing at them. Not just in the dunya but in the Akela.
Allah who use that as it will be
Allah his mocking them.
We feed the Leanna hem Yama.
Allah is increasing them in their transgression, so that they aim want, they wander aimlessly.
That's the end result. A hypocrite has no position, no stability, no stance, like a wild camel
is wandering aimlessly.
from pillar to post. from person to person from party to party, doesn't stand for anything, things they are with everybody. Everybody treats them suspiciously and no one considers them they're
by the testimony of Allah. Not La Ilaha illa Allah Allah Allah, neither are they with these nor are they with them.
Look, you will never be able to please ever, never.
Who is there? Who is there, that everyone loves everyone, without exception, who is?
Forget any Muslim, forget any movement.
Let's not even look at a working model the Allahumma they weren't accepted by everybody. Today, there are many of us who weep at the very mention of the name of Abubaker the code of the Allah Han, who are inspired by his name, his memory, his history, his Sidra is carried.
We are in all of our Mooroopna Barbara de Allaha a towering figure
but even Abubaker in our model the Allahu Anhu ah, there are those who say we believe in Allah and we believe in his rasool Allah Allah Allah He was salam. But as far as Abu Bakr is concerned, he was as indeed
a heretic. He was a disbelieve as far as Rahman is concerned, he was a heretic and a disbelieve.
So even Abu Bakr and Umar Radi Allahu Anhu Huma are not universally loved, and they are who they are.
So let's not even look at the example of a bucket and remodel the Allahumma the sheikh
Um Let's look at the example of the best of the whole of creation. The most beloved to Allah have is creation Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam universally loved
because who He was who He was.
He has a position. He has a stance. He has a following.
He has his people
billions love him.
Billions love him more than they love themselves and their children, or at least aspire to love him more than they love themselves on their own. And more than they love their children. But countless people loathe Rasul Allah, some of the law they hate,
abuse and accused and
none of the messengers of Allah was spared. No.
You cannot please everyone.
The wife of Mohalla his Salam, new Hala is Salam was a prophet of Allah. And one of the oral azmin or rousson,
one of the greatest in the mightiest of the messengers.
His own wife, his own wife, would mock Him, and she would say he is Majnoon he is mad. That was a wife of no headaches.
None of the messengers of Allah were universally loved to accepted. No.
Allah subhana, who with the ad or the creator is not universally accepted.
People mock God, people reject God. People mock God. People blaspheme against God.
So if Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah who seldom haven't been spared, how can we or any one of us aspire to and hope to
be loved by everyone and work towards that? By lying, cheating, deceiving, being two faced
telling this person I'm with you, that person and with you, we will never be able to satisfy and please fo never
no one is University. No.
And when a person tries to be loved by everyone accepted by everyone to be all things to everyone, they will be lost truly lost as Allah says, You Mukdahan feet of Rihanna him Yama Hoon, Allah increases them in their transgression, wandering aimlessly, from person to person, pillar to post, party to part, group to group they will never be accepted by any.
This is why if you wish to be accepted, if you wish to be loved,
and to be loved and accepted by Allah, the Create
that's all and when a person is loved by Allah and accepted by Allah, then that person is loved by those who matter. And those who don't love them don't met.
As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam says in the Hadith, when Allah loves a person, Allah summons the angels and tells them I love this person, you love him too. So the angels announcing the heavens, Allah loves this person.
You love him too. And then the people of the heavens the angels love that person. And then acceptance and love for that person is also placed and spread on
but it doesn't mean everyone loves him. Now, the good love him, the virtuous love him the pious love him.
So the power of the people of Allah love that person.
Even they are not universally accepted, but it's the love of Allah and the people of Allah that is
not anyone else's
Not at all.
And when a person tries to please everyone, that's a trait of homeownership, that person will be left wandering aimlessly, they will be aimless.
No one to goat. No one
we there hello Elashi alfine Otto in America in the magnanimous Allah who use that as it will be Hollywood looking people the anaemia loss has been the retreat to their devils. They say we are with you. We are only joking in jesting Allah chests with them Allah has mocking them and Allah increases them in their transgression. So they are aim wandering aimlessly and the final verse
hula It could mean final verse. So today we'll take a look at the initial federal law that the bill holder from Arabi had the gyro to Omar can what the dean, these people, they have purchased misguidance and deviation
in payments of guidance. We have purchased misguidance for guidance.
So they made a trade. They bought and sold, they bought.
They've made an exchange. They've given up something and paid a price to get something else. So what has been there trade? What have they given up? To get what Allah says they've given up and they've paid the price of and they've given away and they've made the payment of Hooda guidance. That's the price they've paid. And what's a good they've received in return deviation
Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, From Allah we had to Jarrah to their trade, their business wasn't profitable. Or Mark Gannon the dean and know where they wants to find guidance throughout the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah uses
the terms and the terminology and the language of business of trade, of buying of selling of purchasing or exchanging of bartering.
Because this is so
catchy for the humans,
we're always talking about money. We're always talking about wealth.
We're always talking about with buying and selling we're obsessed with possessions and belongings and assets and money and wealth we are
and Macau was a commercial trading center. So Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah uses the commercial language of muckety muck aroma, to help and fool the Arabs in general to help them understand.
In a hadith Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,
Allah in the Scylla Atala Hello Alia know that the produce the products the wares of Allah
are expensive. So what's aware of Allah? What's a product of Allah? What's the produce of Allah?
What's a good that Allah has on display? Jana?
Allah's good Allah's Prophet that he wishes to sell is Jana, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the product of Allah is expensive.
So there's there's a lot of commercial language in the Quran, from our OB had to Jarrah Omar calm what the deen Allah says these when Africans are hypocrites. they've purchased misguidance in payments of guidance.
So their trade wasn't profitable, and they weren't guided.
I'll, I'll end here for today versus continue. So just to recap
so far, some of the traits that we've learned about of the hypocrites at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, at least in these verses
and traits which persist, and that we should be very fearful off because these are the traits of hypocrisy.
They are what are the some of these traits
the failure to realize when they make mistakes and when it's pointed out to them, failure to accept
And then, instead of realizing their error, rejection, and defiance and arrogance and sin
that's another trait of hypocrisy, delusional thinking whereby a person is causing chaos and corruption and yet you
He leaves and tells others that I am doing good.
mocking, laughing at
holding in contempt, and considering those who do good and practice and observe their religion.
They regard them as being fools and idiots. That is not the trait of a marksman. That's another trait of NIFA. And Hip Hop's.
Being two faced and other traits of hypocrisy,
playing games, jesting.
Laughing at the believes, and the good and the pious are some of the traits of hypocrisy.
And these are traits that we've just we've picked up just from these few verses so far, just these few verses.
And I'll mention one more thing about the final verse
from our OB had to Jonathan the makanan. Water Dean.
Another trait of hypocrisy short sightedness,
not physical myopia, but short sightedness as far as the dunya and the Astra are concerned, ha.
looks at the bigger picture looks like
that's a trait and the characteristic of email. But characteristic of hypocrisy is short term gain, immediate instant gratification.
So all they are bothered about is getting what they want immediately.
No consideration of the greater picture, no consideration of the long term consequences. No farsightedness, instant immediate gratification.
That's all this is why Allah says from our OB had the gyro to whom
their trade wasn't profitable, because what did they exchange for what they could have had guidance
and the bliss of the era and the eternal bliss and Felicity and happiness and reward of the Arca but no, they sold that
for the instant immediate gratification and pleasure of the Daniell
that short sightedness short term gain instant and desire for instant and immediate gratification is not the behavior of a movement.
It's not the vision of a movement. It's not the sight of a movement
of a movement. That is the vision and the short sightedness of a monarchy
gives away the gold of the marker
for the lead, and the rock and stone of this world.
This is another trait short sight. All that matters to them on earth
is that I get what I want now. I couldn't care less what happens afterwards. This is why they wander aimlessly. They have no path. They have no vision. They have no direction. They have no goal no objective, except for the instant golden objective.
Which changes from moment to moment.
I pray that Allah subhana wa Allah enables us to understand May Allah protect us from all of these traits of hypocrisy May Allah make us amongst the hunter makers amongst the humble, believing servants who are beloved to him and accepted by him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make sincere in our belief in our words in our speech and our deeds are some of the law or some of them and Abdi he will assume maybe you know Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge marine Allahu decrescendo Allah Allah He learned stuff critical to
