respects and listens. We continue with the topic of the traits of hypocrisy
the characteristics and traits of hypocrisy that we learn from the verses of the Holy Quran
today is the third part over the in the previous two parts I began commenting on the first set of verses in the Holy Quran right at the beginning of sort of the baccarat in which Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of some of the one of
the hypocrites in the blessed city of Medina during the time of the prophets Allah Allah Almighty
I've covered a number of verses so just to recap,
last panel with Allah says
woman unassuming, your color Armin Billa he will be the only hearing among many
and they are of the people those who say we believe in Allah and in the final day
and they are not believers.
You heard the rune Allah who will Lavina Armand when if they're on it learn first someone is your own. They attempt to deceive Allah and those who have believed
and they do not deceive anyone but themselves and they don't even realize
you could all be him metal marathon visa the hula hoop model what to whom rather than a demon the American nuclear bomb

and for them as a painful punishment because they would love
without need Allahu Allah to Sidhu fill
our window man.
And when it is said to them, Do not make mischief on Earth.
we are bits reformers.
Allah Imnaha move Sedona well alkali ashore one

Without lead Allahu Amin Kumar Armineh NAS all mineral coma, ominous so for her at our enum who suffer her will alkali alum and when it is said to them believe just as the people have believed, the people meaning the noble companions or Sahaba or the Allah when
they say in reply, and let me knock on my arm and a sofa. What should we believe as the fools have believed?
will lie on the moon low they indeed they they are the fools and they don't know
whether Aleppo Medina
and when they meet the believers, they say to the believers, we have believed to
what either hello in our shell cleaning, or in America,
from when they retreat into seclusion
to their devils,
meaning their fellow hypocrites, their fellow enemies of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam and their leaders. These are the these are their devils, so either hello in our shell cleaning, so when they retreat into seclusion to their devils,
although in America, they say indeed we are with you in the Mona homes
assume we are only joking ie with the believers when we tell them that we have believed and that we are the
Allah who use that as it will be him when we're looking for you to learn him Yama, who Allah is the One who is mocking them.
And Allah is the One who is increasing
in their transgression so that they wander aimlessly.
Well, I can live in a sterile world, but out at the bill holder for Mara Bihac. The Java token McConnell was the dean Lee, these are people who have purchased misguidance
in payments of guidance
from Arabic to Java to so their trade wasn't profitable. Well, Mark and the dean, and then we're not ones to find guidance. This is a verse where I stopped last week, it still requires a bit of explanation. So I've just quickly translated the previous verses. To give you a quick summary of what we have covered. And this is where we stopped. Where Allah subhanho wa Taala says without equal Lavina stata will call out at the bill Hoda. Allah is still speaking of the same when I've gone and hypocrites Allah says these are the people who have purchased misguidance
in knew of in payment of in exchange of guidance
from our OB head digital, so their trade wasn't profitable, or my gun on the dean and they were not ones to find gardens. This verse reflects
a common theme in the Holy Quran, which is the language of trade of commerce. Makkah was a mercantile commercial society. It was a trading city, and there was no agriculture.
So the city of Mecca depended on trade.
The elites of the Quraysh were all traders. That's how they and the city made mats how the city made its wealth.
Last subhanho wa Taala even refers to that in sort of the field that you love your Quraysh ILA for him, that the *ter you will see
that for the endearment of the or Amish
for their becoming accustomed to
the hull of the ship, you will save the journey of
and the journey of summer. This is a reference to the different seasons of trade, where they will travel to different in in different directions for trade huge trade caravans, so that in the city depended on trade. When the Sahaba or the Allahu emigrated to Mecca to Medina. The there was a famous division. It wasn't it wasn't it wasn't a hostile division but the contrast was very stark and clear. The just as say, than a warrior, a huddle the Allahu Anhu relates, he says that people would ask how can we will hold regular?
Who was one of the junior so how about all the Allah Han?
And who was one of the late comers to Islam in fact, he didn't embrace Islam till the seventh year of Hijra. So, how is it that a will Herrera will the alarm was able to relate so many Hadith
every occasion? This is what people said. every occasion will Haryana has has a hadith every question about Herrera has an answer with a hadith
and sort of what Herrera heard the Allahu and said himself. He said that some of you say that Abu Huraira Yuksel Hadith Allah rasool Allah is Allah Allahu alayhi wa salam that he excessively narrates Hadith, and
attributes these Hadith to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So we'll create a huddle the Allah who
was pleading his case, and whoever was casting aspersions on his honesty, and whoever was objecting
negatively and insincerely. A warrior or the Allah and said to them will love and more. They weren't the Sahaba of the Allah annually with the others. He said to them, Allahu Mohammed, meaning you say this, but by Allah will be our promised time of settling the account by
Allah will be our promised meeting, then by Allah we shall see whether I'm speaking the truth or you are speaking the truth. But he went on to explain why and how he was able to relate so many Hadith. So we learn from a collection of narrations in Buhari itself that oh Haryana huddled the Allahu Allah and said that as for our brothers from the Mahajan. They were busy in the markets
in trading in the markets. And as for our brothers of the unsolved, they were busy in their farms and orchards. So this hadith very clearly explains the contrast between the Mahajan who are all mainly traders, and the unsolved who are farmers, because Medina being an oasis was rich in fertile soil, in water, in
irrigation, and therefore in agriculture, all kinds of cereals were grown in in and around and Madina Munawwara not just
date, but there were there was weeds, there was barley, and various other crops. So it was a very fertile, lush green oasis, and it was a center of agriculture, the market Omokoroa was barren.
And therefore there was no agriculture they they depended and thrived and survived on trade. This is reflected in the Holy Quran, because the Quran uses many financial commercial terms throughout the Quran.
So this is one such verse from Arabic to Jarrah to that their trade wasn't profitable.
And what this verse shows is the short sightedness, the shallow and superficial nature of the hypocrites, as opposed to the believer, a believer is not short sighted, a believer is far side. A believer is not shallow and superficial. A believer is profound and deep in his thinking, in his vision.
In his conduct in his understanding and perception.
A believer doesn't look at the short term gain. That's what the hypocrite does, the more narrow Fick only looks at today and tomorrow.
He looks at short term gain. His understanding is limited to the dunya
he can't think beyond
just as I explained in salt on one afternoon
Allah says of them Hoon Lavine, hakuna la tune ficou Adama Nanda rasool Allah Hatha, and
this is a reference to when the hypocrites
were saying to each other, but if you want to drive out these Muslims,
and these immigrants, and these refugees as they refer to them, if you want to drive them out of our city of Medina yesterday,
Don't spend money on
we've opened up our homes to them. We've shared our wealth to them with them, we've accommodated them, we've embraced them, and that's why they've become rebellious, and they are ungrateful. So if we want to get rid of them, it's very simple.
Just don't share your wealth with them. Don't feed them.
Don't give them any money. Don't spend on them. Don't aid or help or assist them in any way. And soon because of poverty, you will see that they will disperse and flee from our city they'll just disappear. So a lot of quotes in the Quran who in Lithuania, Quran Allah tune in the Rasul Allah, they are the ones I the hypocrites who say, Do not spend on those who are with and by the Messenger of Allah, had they and
until they disperse
that verse and this verse to that verse is proof of what this verse says
that their vision was very short, they were very short sighted. They looked at immediate gain, the whole and standing was well
so they judged the Sahaba or the Allah on on themselves.
They loved nothing but the dunya
That was their short term vision.
They saw an immediate short term gain in siding with the Muslims. So they sided with the Muslims. They saw an immediate short term instance, gain and gratification by claiming to become Muslim. And by claiming to follow the messenger, sallallahu alayhi salam. So for them, it was easy. They announced that it's now.
So when they were with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and this habit of the love and him as the previous verses have just said, they would say, Amen, we have believed, because for them, that was a short term game, it was beneficial, it was profitable, to tell them Muslims, that we are muslims just like you. Then a few moments later, when they would go to their fellow hypocrites, and to their fellow and believers, and to those who oppose the Messenger of Allah. Within a few minute moments, they would say to them, we're not with them in America, we are with you.
So if they ever said, Well, why did you tell them you are believers, you're saying, we're only joking with making fools of them.
So for them, that was the immediate short term game.
Everything was determined by instant immediate satisfaction and gratification and gain and profits. Nothing else. So they judged that's how they were and they knew how they were. So as is common, we always like to think of others as we see ourselves.
the ruthless, the cynical
person sees everyone like himself, so he thinks everyone else is a rogue, is ruthless, is cynical, and is harsh and heartless, and is unscrupulous just like I am.
And the poor innocent person who is trusting, innocent, naive, soft, sensitive, that poor person thinks everyone is honest, innocent, soft, naive,
trusting, unsuspecting, and credulous.
It's human nature, we see a reflection of ourselves and others. So the moon African thought,
These people are just like us. We love the dunya. They love the dunya. We love wealth, they love wealth. We love our bellies and our stomachs. And that's what they love to.
We crave food, and they crave food too.
So it's very simple. If we want to get rid of them, stop feeding them.
Don't share your wealth with them. Don't give them money, because that's all they want.
And as soon as you stop feeding them,
as soon as you stop giving them wealth, they'll disappear. They'll go elsewhere where they can find and scrounge for food.
They are scavengers just like well, that was their vision. That was their thought.
But little did they know that the Sahaba or the love.
We're not interested in food. We're not interested in wealth.
In fact, Subhan Allah, the Mahajan and the Sahaba of the Lavon, who was so pure of heart, it's unimaginable.
siblings, blood full blood brothers argued over inches of land.
Siblings, brothers and sisters who grew up together, fight with each other over their dead parents inheritance.
All love goes out of the wind
we go to
We stand before judges. We go to courts
to make claims against each other, that he has taken my wealth or he has something that belongs to me or he has something that I think should be mine or he has injured my feelings therefore I want to sue him and rob him of his into
so we go to courts, we go to tribunals.
We want judgments in our favor, to take wealth. And that's common throughout the world. The Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu was so pure. So pure Allahu Akbar, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did more Aha. By meaning he created a brotherhood between the Sahaba or the Allah who and whom he made the Mahajan rune, the brothers of the emsoft.
So when he made them brothers, the InSAR said, Look, we have lands we have fields, we have options. We have palm groves.
We want to give you half of our wealth.
So the Mahajan said we don't want it.
We actually said we don't want it.
So what did the unsalted they say? Okay, then food relief Alhamdulillah. Now, the unsolved went to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, they went to the judge. And they said, We want to make a claim.
What's the claim? These muhajir rune brothers of ours. We offered them our wealth, our Lanzo estates, half of our assets, half of our orchards and our fields, but they're refusing to take them. You have a sort of luck, can you compel them to take them? Can you lean upon them to take them? Will you please tell them to take half of our wealth? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made them the offer that this is what they offering? So how Mahajan said no?
Eventually they came to an agreement. The Mahajan woman, the insol. And Mahajan said, oh Ansara, what you do is you keep your land and your assets and your fields they remain yours.
we will take part of the produce, we will share the profits and the produce of these orchards with you.
And these palm groves and these estates and farms and these lands.
So eventually, the unseres had, okay, we accept spam, we will say we want to give you a half of our wealth. But if you refusing to take half of our wealth, and you want just a share of our eventual profits, then fine if you insist, we'll accept that. So they they actually compromise but the compromise was not in that sorry, it was in their favor, but they weren't Subhanallah they were willing to give away half their wealth. That was the that was the vision, the understanding
of the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu. But then when African thought they are
greedy for food,
and for money, and for wealth, just like we are greedy for food, money and wealth. They are short sighted, just like we are short sighted, they are only interested in the dunya just like we are, they are only interested in immediate short term gain, instant satisfaction and gratification just like we are. So the solution is simple. It's not feeding them, it's not giving them money and they'll disappear.
But the Sahaba or the Allah azza wa jal especially were not there for that.
Far from it.
They were there for the sake of Allah and his little salts, Allah Halima. What these verses then show is the immediate short term vision
short term benefits
and vision of the monad
that's not how a Mortman behaves. A mop min is not greedy for wealth is not greedy for food, and what men doesn't just look at tonight and tomorrow, and what men looks towards the ark, and what man looks beyond death, and what man looks to the afterlife. And what mean doesn't just think about this than Yeah, this is vital. This is very important. Short term vision, short term aspirations, instant satisfaction, instant gratification, immediate gain, immediate profitability. These are the characteristics of a monastic movement.
And this is why Allah says from our OB had the Jarrah.
That's the trade they made.
And it was so short sighted that they actually had Hooda guidance in their hands.
They were in the city of Medina.
They were living while support animals to being with you
They would see the prophets Allah, Allah Almighty, Allah, they will pray behind the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa
be in the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam they would hear his heartbeat they would hear his still our.
But their hearts were sealed the voice of the Noble Messenger of Allah.
The words of the Holy Quran would not penetrate their hearts, because there was a veil.
Imagine how deprived and unfortunate and how wretched they must have been.
If they, if they had the choice, they could have believed in the Messenger of Allah sincerely remained believes they could have followed.
But no, they were so blind. They were so greedy, they were so myopic, short sighted that they
ignored and neglected even the messenger of Allah, just so that they could get they could fill their bellies for today and tomorrow, so that they could wear a few trinkets and they could gather a few corns.
So they made a conscious decision
to trade to do business we all trade.
In a hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, every one of you goes out in the morning
what could you come back
for more typical her own movie or her. Every morning when a person goes out, he engages in a trade, he sells his soul.
Body. Every morning, every person goes out and makes a trade. He sells his soul. So every one of us sells his soul in the morning. Now you either you either sell your soul to Allah, or you sell your soul to the devil and to the dunya and that's why in the Hadith, he said, he says
for about your omnicef Ha Ha
he either emancipates and freezes soul
or he destroys it. So we make a trade every morning.
We sell ourselves
and we either sell ourselves to Allah
or we sell ourselves to the dunya and to shaver
and that's what the knife wound did.
They had guidance and when whenever we do business whenever we buy and sell whenever we bought or we exchange we trade, we have to give something in order to get something
the either pay pounds dollars currency, we pay and we exchange an item for an item We barter, we have to give something in order to get something we have to make a payment. So then when Earth has gone, what did they pay?
What did they pay?
They made a trade.
They bought and sold. So what was their exchange? What was their Bart?
Their payments was Hooda guidance. They paid
to be with the Messenger of Allah. They paid away they gave away in payment. Jana, they gave away in payment guidance, they gave away in payment, the whole earth era, an afterlife, they gave away in payment, the Sahaba and the company of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam they gave away all of this and much more. And what did they gain in exchange? What did they buy and purchase in exchange for this payment?
Bala Allah, Allah says they bought deviation and misguidance and waywardness.
So Allah says from Allah we had the data that trade wasn't profitable. Well, Mr. Gan almost the the
and nor were they wants to find the guidance
and move on. This is the nature of hypocrisy. This is another characteristic of NIFA
that the mafia is short sighted looks for instant satisfaction, gratification and immediate profits and gain.
And that's all that matters.
And this is why the mafia
is never steady. In in an
Opposition, never steadfast. In fact, in a hadith Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I'm paraphrasing has described the Mona fit and the Mothman with trees.
the Mothman is similar to a tree, which has deep roots.
is tall and standing and firm,
even when it's buffeted by strong winds, even a Hurrican.
The most that happens to that tree is that it sways and it bends, but it never snaps in never falls. That's a moment when the Mothman is has deep roots of faith and Eman and walk them in even when he is buffeted by strong winds of calamities and misfortunes. The Mothman doesn't break the Mothman doesn't snap. The McMinn Swayze is shaken but the Mothman doesn't even fall. doesn't snap doesn't break never falls.
Because of their his deep roots. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described
a tree or a bush,
which is similar to them Omar FIP and he mentioned the bush. The thing about this bushes it grows in the desert. It's tall, but not very tall, but it's around it. And it has very shallow roots.
So it's rounded it looks really good.
Forget strong winds.
A slight gust of wind and because it has narrow short roots, but a very large top it's top heavy. The tree is top heavy. So what happens as soon as there's a slight gust of a strong gust of wind the whole tree uproots itself the whole tree is uprooted and it just rolls over and is swept away by the wind blown away that someone outfit
and what if it doesn't break or snap or sway or bend?
And when if it is there as a whole looking very good.
Next minute, he's not there. He's gone. The holes has gone.
He doesn't even fall. He doesn't fall. He doesn't snap. He doesn't break he doesn't bend he just disappears
that's the meaning of Yama Hoon in the earlier this from pillar to post from one thing to another because I'm gonna Africa is never stable is never steady is never perseverant because he has no principles
Why would he principles? Why would he have scruples.
Screw scruples don't matter a conscience doesn't matter principles don't matter. What matters is immediate gain immediate profits. So if he has to change his views for immediate gain, he will change them. If he has to change his religion for immediate gain, he will change his religion. If he has to change his opinions. He will do it. If he has to change his position, his principles, his party, his loyalty, his fidelity, his faithfulness, it doesn't matter. Everything is up for bargain. Because all that matters for him. And to him is his immediate profitability and gain.
Father doesn't matter mother doesn't matter brothers sister doesn't matter.
Children don't matter at times to them on earth.
All that matters is his instant satisfaction, gratification, immediate profits and gain. And for that everything else everything is on the line. Everything can be sacrificed. Everything can be expended, everything can be exploited, everything can be solved. Because that's the nature of them are nothing short term gain and immediate profitability. That's all and then when Africa will sell everything, and when Africa will sell his soul
I'm gonna flip will sell his religion
and will now if it was sell his opinions, his views.
As a joke goes in English. These are my principles.
And if you don't like them, I have others
these are my principles. If you don't like them, I have this. Everything's up for trade, my principles my screwing pools.
That's the nature of Amana. For instance, short term immediate gain and profitability.
And the monarch always thinks of one of
gain but Allah says from our OB had the gyro to Omaka the dean. Their trade wasn't profitable, nor did they find guidance moving on because there are many of the verses of the Holy Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter says in Surah Baqarah continuing with these verses
methylome comm affiliate comm affiliate let's start with methylome comm affiliate Listopada now, for the MA at Mahalo, the hub Allahu venuti him with Rocco visa Rahmatullah.
Allah says their example, their parable,
the parable of the hypocrites, is that of a man
who has lit a fire
when that fire has lit up,
what's around him?
There will be no to him. Allah suddenly snatches their sight, their light. What are comfy Rahmatullah Ypsilon and Allah leaves them in darknesses, unable to see.
As I said, there were all kinds of hypocrites. In Medina, there were those who had never believed.
And there were those who had believed but abandon their faith.
So here, if the real Imam said There are mainly two explanations for this verse, If the reference is to those who never believed,
and it's very simple, if the reference is to those who never believed, and it's very simple.
Allah says the example the parable of the hypocrites is that of a man who has lit a fire ignited a fire so the fire burns and it lights up everything around him. So you can see he feels safe, he feels warm, you feel secure,
and he has sufficient light.
And then imagine, all of a sudden, the light is suddenly stink, extinguished.
And the person is left in pitch darkness, no light, no warmth,
no heat, no vision,
darkness layers upon layers of darkness.
Imagine the person's panic, especially outside in the wilderness, the person's panic, the person's vulnerability
and the danger.
So if this is a reference to those who never believed at all, what this verse is saying is that those who never believed at all because they were hypocrites. And they made certain choices such as, falsely claiming to be believers,
when, when they falsely claimed to be believes they momentarily for a short while in the dunya
found some warmth, peace, light and security.
That's what it means.
So by falsely claiming to be believers,
they assured their worldly safety.
No one harmed them. They enjoyed all the benefits and the warmth and the light of the believers of being believers of being with the believers.
But then as soon as they die,
everything is extinguished.
They will have no light, no warmth, no heat, nothing in the era. Their example is the hub Allah will be normally him. Allah suddenly snatches there light what the recording fees alone Matt, and he leaves them in darkness is law you've soon and able to see. This is why in another verse of the Quran, Allah says on the day of reckoning Yomi a coulomb wanna honor what on earth are the little Athena almonds Luna Nocturnus me nori come.
And before this Yamato menina want me not yes or no? Ad him will be a man to him. For sure. Oh, come on young.
Allah says on the day when you shall see the believing men and the believing women. Yes.
By an ad him will be a man. Their lines will be running before them
Enter their sides to their right side. What this means is that in the Asherah, every movement, man and woman will be given special mood
and that mood,
the power of the normal, the wattage the voltage of the neuron
will be equivalent to a person's good deeds, the more your good deeds, the brighter your light in the
for some that good deeds will feel they will still receive a no but then we will only light up a bit.
And for some, their new will lock their light will light up everything as is visible to the horizon and beyond.
And their lights will actually race in front of them. It will be a wonderful thing, a miraculous marvelous thing.
Yamato me Nina want me now to yes or no Bina ed will be Imani.
On the Day when you shall see the believing men and believing women.
That light will be racing before them and to their side.
It will be announced to them washer arkoma Young you're glad tidings this day is Jamaat gardens beneath which rivers will flow?
So these will be the minima. So what was the mana for them when I've gone will say, Hey, how can we don't have any land
suggest as they sought to benefit from the believers and exploit the beliefs and use the beliefs
and be parasites attaching themselves to the believers. They will want to be parasites in the ark era as well. They will want to attach themselves to the believers and they will say and Allah says here Yomi a coulomb when I first want a one on one I forgot Lavina almond Verona and Dr. Bismil normally on the day when the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women
since Allah earlier mentioned believing men and believing women here he says hypocritical men and hypocritical women on the day when they shall say to the believers
not there is no recomm that Be considerate towards us. Not the best minority come letters. Take some light from your hands.
Give us some of your light.

You know, alumna Kumarakom

what are our best? Well, well heard Kamala man him
at that Hector Jha Amarula rockin biller.
So the hypocritical man and hypocritical women will say to the believers, consider us be considerate towards us, so that we can take a bit of your light,
it will be sad to them, Go away, retreat
and look for light elsewhere, then they won't find any light. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah will strike and erect a wall between them for the rebel in the home bisol. Allah will erect a huge wall between the moon and the moon Earth on the moon a minute. And then when Africa between the believing men and women and the hypocritical men and women, a huge wall will go up.
From the outside the wall will be full of fire.
But that will be towards them on our football on the other side, but they will figure
within the wall where the believers will be, there will be nothing but
mercy and mess.
You're not doing the home and I'm not American. So the hypocrites will call out to the believers from over the wall and say an American American, were we not with you i in the dunya will be not part of your group will be not Muslim as UN Muslims. Were we not part of the band of believers.
So it will be set to them. The believers will then say to them, of course there will be this exchange over the walls. I'll do better. The believers will say yes, you were with us what I can the confident and full circle. But you deceived yourselves with our best and you waited ie you wait you lay in wait for calamities and misfortunes to strike us so that you could be free and relieved the office

And the Great Deceiver meaning shape arm deceived you and the worldly life deceive you.
And you remain like this until the affair the decree of Allah arrived.
I wouldn't show like explain those verses in more detail later. But this is
a reference to
the lines that Allah will snatch from the hypocrites. So in the in the dunya, the meaning of light here is the light, the warmth, the heat, the security, the safety, the comfort that they enjoyed with the believers, they will think that all of these comforts, this assurance, the security, the slight, this warmth, and heat will all continue in the UK. But as soon as they die, suddenly they will be plunged into pitch darkness. That's the meaning of their example is that of a man who lit a fire. Then when the fire is lit, and he lights up everything around it. The Hub Allah has been already him, Allah suddenly snatches their light. What are coming for you the Rahmatullah you've
said own and Allah leaves them in darkness is enabled. See, this is if the verses are referring to those who never been
what of those who did believe and then doubted and then became hypocritical, simple.
Their example is even more clear.
Allah says that example is that of a man who lit a fire when the fire lit up everything around him. These people originally initially believed so they embraced Islam. They profess the slam, they became genuine followers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, but later, the love of the dunya the love of their friends, the love of their families,
immediate short term gain, profit, instant profitability, and doubt all of these things set in so they drifted and veered away from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they remained
apparents believers, but deep down within they became unbelievers. So they became pure hypocrites, even though they had originally believed. So their example is of a man who lit a fire the fire lights up the surroundings in the vicinity. Their light was the light of hidayah of guidance of the Quran. They actually saw that light their lives was believing Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
They had that light, they had genuine warmth, light, safety, security, heat, everything comforts. But then when they decided to disbelieve again when they decided to be doubtful, Allah subhanho wa Taala they have a love of in order to him, they thought that we are still good everything's working everything's well. Nothing's changed only our hearts have changed within but externally without everything's the same. Now. They have a lot of annuity. last panel with Allah snatch their light, what are comfortable amanatullah Huge saloon and Allah left them in darknesses. Unable to see. So genuinely they were unable to see who would send to the Rasul Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam at one
time, they would listen to him anything he said they would believe. Now, because of our veil
they will see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but wouldn't see him they would hear the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but wouldn't hear
they would understand the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam but wouldn't and standard
This is why Allah says in the next verse immediately what are confused automatic Allah you've seen whom Allah leaves them in darkness is enabled see some Bookman, Iranian for whom lives
from Nigeria some books on Ambien for whom lie or Jerry they are unable to see some
book some they are death Bookman Delta reunion they are blind
from larger rooms so they do not return it to guidance. Remarkably, they were on guidance at one time now they are so far away. That despite hearing seeing, noticing, observing, witnessing everything, they are unable to return guidance. They aren't blind of sight. They all deaf
of the ear canal.
They aren't dumb of tongue and speech.
They are able to speak they are able to hear they are able to see.
As Allah says in another verse of the Quran, for in the harlot Tamil of SAR well I can Tamela ruble Latif is sudo so it's because it's not the eyes which are truly blind, but it's the hearts in the bosoms of men that are blind.
And in another verse, all will lie have gotten wanna be her? Well, you know, Allah, you've said on her behalf. Well, Allah is gonna be her. Hula Ecole unnamable, whom Allah Allah Muhammad was off you don't. Allah says they have hearts with which they do not understand.
They have eyes with which they do not see.
They have ears with which they do not hear.
These people are like animals and they they are even more misguided. They are heedless.
That's when Allah robs a person of their sight of their understanding of their hearing. They hear but they don't understand nothing registers may see but nothing registers.
And that's what the hypocrites okay.
This is another trait of hypocrisy when a person goes so far down the road of sin iniquity misguidance then
light stares at them.
They are staring at a light light burns and shines bright in their faces into their eyes. It's blinding can't see.
The genuinely can't see
the truth is there right before navels.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah continues Oh Casa even Minister man
fee of Allah Martin What are
your journey gonna sign up? Then in Minnesota and behavioral mount? Walla wheat and Bill cafe in your car? Full of sorrow Calama Allah Allahu Michelle fee. What are the other than marinating on what? Oh sha Allah, Allah, the Habibi, Sumerian? Well, I'm sorry, him in the luchador Coalition for the year. Allah says all there the example of the hypocrites.
Allah gives two examples here.
So the first one I've already explained, what's the first example of the hypocrites
the example of a man who likes a fire, once the fire, brightens the vicinity lights up the area, suddenly lost harmony with Allah extinguishes that light extinguishes that warmth. And Allah leaves them confused, bewildered, fearful,
in pitch darkness, with layers upon layers of darkness, unable to see, unable to understand and able to hear and able to perceive and able to return to their former state of guidance. That's the first example. The second example that Allah gives is of oak or save in Minnesota.
Or their example is that of a rain laden cloud from the heavens from the sky.
That rain that cloud is heavy with rain
There are there is darkness in that cloud word.
And fund will work, Baroque. And line.
Imagine a storm.
This actually is the example of the Holy Quran.
And the second example,
is applicable to another group of the hypocrites that I mentioned before as well, which group is this? This isn't the group that believes that never believed.
The first one the strongest the worse, nor is the second group which at one stage believed and then became unbelievers and remained and believes.
This is the third group and which group is this? This is a group that did believe
and they were very confused. So what they would do is that they would believe they believed they were with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, but they were torn. They would sway and swing
The Muslims to the enemy from the Sahaba of the Allah Harlan Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa salam to others. And they would always say they would fluctuate. So unlike the first group, which was very firm in their hypocrisy, they never ever believed not even once. And like the second group, which initially believed sincerely, and then drifted from Islam, and then remained unbelievers till the end. So there's was a single transition from belief to disbelieve. The third group was that of the confused, what they would do is that they embrace the slam, they will with the prophets of Allah Almighty.
And then suddenly, when something would happen,
their friends, their family, their colleagues and acquaintances would invite them would attract them, which would allow them they would swing and sway in that direction, because they weren't firm in their belief. So they would go with the others, then they would see some light because they weren't as bad as
they weren't as bad as the first two groups. So sometimes they would see
the glaring, bright truth of the Quran and of Rasulullah sallallahu it was some of them. So some of their doubts would be alleviated. And they would slowly drift back towards a sort of last Allah it was something
and then again, when they were offered some wealth, some dunya some love, some friendship, some recognition, by the other one after all, they would swing in that direction, so they were forever confused, moving from one camp to the other. The second example is of that is for them, to see even Minister summer Viola Martin Barragan, Robert Yagoona, saw better home than Minnesota is to have that on a month will love them heat and Bill caffeine. Allah says all their example their parable is that of a rain laden cloud in which there is darkness ie there are clouds, but this storm is such that these clouds are dark black clouds because they are heavy with rain.
It's a heavy heat storm.
And not only are the clouds dark laden and heavy with rain, but they are full of thunder claps of thunder and lightning. This is a Quran
How can it be the Quran with darkness? No. The Quran is full of rain sorry that the cloud is full of rain ie the Quran. And why is it full of rain even in a hadith Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has described knowledge and guidance that comes from Allah has reign.
The Mercy of Allah in a hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and many authors mentioned this in the book of knowledge, that because the Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, the example of me and you
and the guidance that you take, and the knowledge that reaches you, is that rain which falls from the heavens, it's the same rain, but it collects in different lands. So you'll either collect in soft soil, which is fertile, the rain seeps in, and what happens to that fertile, lush green area? Well, the fertile soil what happens, the rain seeps into the ground, it irrigates the land, that it benefits the land, the land flourishes, thrives, grows green and lush in crops and in vegetation. And then not only does the land benefit from that rain, but the land creates produce for land for animals and for him.
That's the example of the Hooda the rain, the guidance of Allah and His knowledge. So even and then there are other lands in which the rain collects and gathers but doesn't see pin. And then there is that jagged, Rocky, uneven land, which is hard and barren. What happens, neither does the rain seep in. So it doesn't benefit it. Nor does the rain collect because at least if it collected like the previous land, it wouldn't benefit the land itself. But animals could come and drink and it would at least be a reservoir for Hinz. But the third land which is jagged, Rocky and even, barren, hard, what happened
arid what happens to that land? The waterfalls doesn't see pin doesn't even gather but washes away. Doesn't benefits it, nor can it benefits anyone else. So even the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has described the guidance of Allah as rain. So here as well. The cloud is the Quran, laden with rain, ie the Mercy, the knowledge and the guidance of Allah. Fie, Hello, Matt. How can you have darknesses Of course, the Quran is full of warnings.
The Quran is full of warnings. These are the warnings volum out the darkness is the layers of darkness, or the warnings of Allah subhanho wa.
Wa, and lightning. Of course, many verses of the Holy Quran in their warning are sharp and striking.
What are sorry thunder and lightning.
And when these women have all who are doubters and confused and would switch and fluctuates from camp to camp, when they would hear these verses, they would be fearful.
And like the first group and the second group, they would actually mock the verses of the Quran. They would mock the verses of the Quran, they wouldn't care because their hearts were sealed. These people their hearts weren't sealed entirely. But they were very doubtful, very confused. So when they would hear verses of the Quran that was striking, and sharp and hard hitting in their warnings, what would they do your jalaun outside better than him Minnesota, they would place their fingers in their ears, because of the thunderclaps
have their own mouth, they would fear death out of fear of death. So it doesn't mean they will whenever they would hear the verses of the Quran they would place fingers in their ears know what it meant is that they would do the equivalent they would not want to hear the warnings of the Quran.
And they would fear the warnings of the Quran.
Allah Enza verse by saying well love and hate and Bill caffeine a lot encompasses the unbelievers. Then the second verse, continues with the same group, your God will burn for Apsara
the warnings in the Holy Quran was so vivid, so sharp, so striking.
That unlike the first two groups of the hypocrites who were just mock and who were blind, some when they were blind, deaf, dumb and blind. This third group of the Mona afikomen was such that because they were only confused, and they would sway from group to group, they weren't utterly blind yet. They weren't utterly deaf or dumb.
So they could see that they were weak, very weak. So what they would do is when they would hear the verses of the Holy Quran full of warnings, they would see it the brightness of the lightning was such your Goldenberg tougher absorb
the lightning nice smashes meaning closely snatches their signs.
That's how bright it was and we would see it good llama Hola. Hola, Michelle fie.
Whenever these warnings of the Holy Quran and the truth that was striking and bright would appear before them, how would they react and respond? What did I say earlier? They would believe? They would say yes, yes, this is truth. So
when the lightning would flash pull them out of Allah, Allah Allah whom whenever the lightning would flash, it would light up everything. So what will they do? Michelle fi they would actually walk forward towards Allah towards Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam in guidance as believers. They would walk in that light.
But then as soon but Lightning doesn't stay for long. It's only flashes way the Illuminati and as soon as the lightning stops
and it casts darkness upon them again. What do they do?
Their guidance disappears.
Calm, they suddenly come to a halt and they stand still. So they move forward slightly, and they stop.
Well, oh sha Allah, Allah, the Herbison eaten Bob slaughter him. And if Allah wished Allah could take away their hearing and their sights meaning the third group of them on Earth on they are still not fully blind, and they are still not fully deaf. This is why when the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam would speak when he would recite the verses of the Quran
and they would at times respond to the verses of the Quran, they would respond to the warnings and the glad tidings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When these warnings when these glad tidings were so bright and so striking, it would light up everything around them, and momentarily they would believe, and they would move forward in their faith. But as soon as that ended, they were plunged into darkness again. But unlike the first two groups, they weren't completely deaf, dumb or blind, there was still some hope for them. But it's up to them where they wish to go.
Now somehow Allah and then Allah Enza verse and this whole section at the beginning of sort of Bukhara with the words in Allah, Allah condition Kadena Indeed, Allah is All Powerful Over All Things.
What's remarkable is that we've always thought of them on our fifth one as the first two groups.
But there is a there was a third group as well. And Allah describes his third group in some detail. Now imagine, in some ways
we should ask ourselves, are we even any better than this third group?
were Subhan Allah, sometimes we respond to the truth of the Holy Quran, and the truth of the words of Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
But it's very brief and it's momentary.
The light of the Quran and the light of the Hadith only flashes for us for a few seconds. And in those few seconds, we experience moments of moments of faith and conviction and belief. Then, as soon as that lightning stops, we go back to our dunya our friends, our world, we are attracted by anything and everything else, everyone and everything else.
So we waver just like they wavered. So we drift from Quran Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah has a source of love, it was Salam to the dunya.
The first two groups at least we can say of them that they were ostensibly apparently believers, but Die Hard disbelievers at heart, but this third group,
they would switch from faith to from belief to disbelief and in fact, one of the signs of the overlook the AMA is the sort of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam repeatedly said
that a man will be a believer in the morning and a disbeliever in the evening, or believe it in the evening and disbelieve it in the morning.
You speak with Roger Altman and what you'll see coffee.
A man will rise in the morning as a believer and in the evening who will become a disbeliever. A man will spend the evening as a believer in the morning he will be a disbelieve, ie a man will fluctuate from belief to disbelieve from certainty to doubt from conviction to uncertainty.
And in another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually said he predicted that one of the signs of the Day of Judgment is that NIFA will be on the increase in the fog will increase. Hypocrisy will increase.
And remember, hypocrisy. We always make this mistake whenever we hear the word NIF Ark. Whenever we hear the term when African art we always tend to think that this doesn't concern us because this is about those people who profess belief in Islam by tongue and yet don't believe at heart, but Hamdulillah we are safe because we believe by heart. There was no one who knew them on Earth, better after assault allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam than the key part of the secrets of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are they particularly a man of the Allah and as I've repeatedly said,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam divulge the name, the names of 14 when if at all according to one narration to him,
so he never knew the names of all of them on Earth. According to one narration, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam only shared the names of 14 When Arthur goon with him after husband the book after the campaign of the book, so even he never knew all of them.
And he was a keeper of the secrets of Rasul Allah Subhan Allah Hardy, who seldom Are they for doubling the amount will be Allah Who and he will do better to define Nefab and hypocrisy than him. And Are they familiar man with the Lavon was asked moneyfarm What's hypocrisy? He said, That's a man speaks of Islam but does not act on it. That's hypocrisy. Not that a person
speaks of Islam but disbelieves by heart,
A man who speaks of Islam, but does not act on it. That's hypocrisy by the definition of Sarajevo. servera Sunni allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with a fundamentally a man with the unlock the keeper of the secrets of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with a for doubling the amount of the Allah Who and his definition was hypocrisy is that a man speaks of SLAM religion, that is an act.
So this is the kind of hypocrisy which will be on the increase
closer to Yamapi.
This is why we should fear NIFA and hypocrisy. The Sahaba of the love and who feared hypocrisy as I've related before even be more Laker essays, says as the mumble hurry relates in his sorry that I have met 30 of the noble Sahaba of the Lavon go looking at Colonial half on the Falcon Isla and every one of them feared hypocrisy for himself. Every one of
the Sahaba of the Allah who feared hypocrisy, Abu Bakr in our model the Allah Harinama both feared hypocrisy as we learn from their stories which have related before the Sahaba of the Allahu Arnhem in general feared in the FARC and hypocrisy and as Imam Al has some lessons to learn here they used to say,
only a movement fears hypocrisy, and only I'm gonna feel safe from hypocrisy.
So before I end, let me recap, this is the first section in the Holy Quran right at the beginning of sort of the Bacara, which deals with hypocrisy and some of the traits of hypocrisy. Our purpose is to learn some of these characteristics, and beware of them, and remove them from our character and fear them. So as a quick recap, just in this set of verses, what are some of the traits of hypocrisy that Allah Subhana Allah has mentioned?
One is, they say with their tongue, that which their hearts do not believe.
So they say right at the beginning, we believe in Allah, but they don't believe it.
So there's a mismatch between their speech and their heart, their speech and their deeds. That's one of the traits of hypocrisy. Number two, your call during the law when Lavina Arman Kadar deception
a believer doesn't deceive that is a characteristic and the traits of hypocrites.
Number three feel kuruva him muddled there is a disease in the heart a sickness and that sickness is mainly dat.
Number four, well, Aleem Bhima can we actually boom, they would lie. Lying is probably the most famous trait of hypocrisy. This is why in a hadith, related by mumble Hardyman Muslim and others famous Hadith woreda huddle the Allah and what are the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is
in our head that together the sign of a hypocrite the signs of a hypocrite are three. The first sign is when he speaks he loved it there had the thicket where there were the floodway that Domina hmm
the other Hadith related by I'm delighted and honored to be asked for the love Arnhem again related by Mahatma Muslim and others herbarium including the fee Gana Mana gonna fit them Harley so I'm gonna kind of vehicle so that the men who can see his little men in the fog had the idea that you that Domina Han way that had the thicker than what you that after the hood that either have some of a gel for things which are found in a person.
He is a pure hypocrites. And if one of these four traits is found in him, then he has in him a traitor hypocrisy until he eradicates it's an removes it and those four traits are number one is that Domina Han when he is entrusted with the trust, he is treacherous.
This is the same as in the first the formal way it will be Allah
number two what either had the feather when he speaks the same
when he pledges, he breaks that pledge
in reality, this is actually quite distinct from what you there were other fluff.
So this then becomes a fourth traits.
And the final traits in the second Hadith I would love Marina blouse where you're going to have some of Fajr when he disputes his sins I eat. We all have our disagreements. We keep our disagreements to a limit. We don't let them extend the
On the original remit,
and what mean has disagreement, but not mean might disagree with someone about an opinion and what mean might disagree with someone about a trade deal, and what mean may disagree with someone about a loan, and what we may disagree with someone about some length,
but they confine their disagreement to that one thing. They don't allow it
to conflict, they don't allow it to spread, they don't extend it to anything and everything.
That is not the sign of a movement. And that's what I'm gonna
say it's a little known trait of the monastic and I'll elaborate on these two Hadith later, but we adhere it will stick to the verses of the Quran for now. So lines probably the chief traits of hypocrisy, as we know from the Hadith. So that's the fourth one mentioned here in the verses.
The next one,
without either long letters to fill out, or in the manner homescreen refusal to accept and acknowledge wrong
and being defiant in sin.
Out arrogant, deluded
the next one
all who are not monogamous arm and the sufferer her considering good pious, believing observant people to be fooled, that is a sign of I'm gonna fit not mean and what may never mocks the Quran or the people of the Quran and what me never mocks even more the people are in a mock me never mock Salah piety, better virtue or the people of virtue and piety. And what may never MOX Taqwa or the motorhome never,
never, that is a sign of homeownership.
That is a sign of a munaf.
If we cannot act,
uncertainty teachings of Allah and Allah Allah Almighty who seldom,
if we cannot observe
all of the laws of Allah and His Apostle Sall Allahu alayhi wa salam, in fact, something may not even be obligatory. It's a sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam, it may not even be obligatory it's not even watching it's a son.
But a mock me never belittle that summer and what min respects it's even though he may not act on it himself.
To mock a sunnah
or to mock the people that observe at sunnah.
That is the characteristic and a trait of a pure monofin
this is what they would do at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu today himself
they are the idiots just as Allah says Allah in NA Mustafa will
the next trait with our local Medina Paulo Amman now either Hello Allah Shayateen in Oregon American to face sickness when they will go to their people that say we are with you. We're only joking making fools and idiots and the others. When they come to the believers we are with you to face Agnus. Another famous trait of hypocrisy
the next one which I began with today, well I could live in a little village at the Buddha short sightedness immediate gain instant gain profitability, instant gain satisfaction and gratification that is a sign of a hypocrite.
Then law mentions the two parables which I just explained in detail and elaborated on. So these are just some of the traits of hypocrisy that we've learned
from the set of verses and one of the thing, some memoriam from Lyle Gerring. They are deaf, dumb and blind.
Men pays attention as I said in the verse, what either below whom Lao Tzu fell out when it said to them Do not spread corruption do not make mischief on earth. What does it mean do a McMinn submits a movement accepts a believer listens attentively.
A sir Eagleman would either be a leader the fortunate one is he who is admonished by others who is advised by others who is counseled by others and what mean listens to others and would have been Cotabato? The Allah who aren't used to say, Rahim Allah home run in a year or you will be May Allah have mercy on a man who presents a gift to me of my errors.
millimeter movement, a movement a believer is a mirror of a believer. And one of the meanings of this hadith is that a man is able to shine the light onto another Mortman. And just as the mirror points out the floor or the defects or the imperfection, or the spot or the mole on you, so that you can do something about it, a MOTM insincerely shows the mirror to a believer, and points out to him a false that he may not be aware of.
And what does it mean do and what mean except I'm not being listened to and not been submits?
And what minutes not defined? So mock me listens. It is not deaf, dumb and blind to everything to good the truth to good counsel to admonition and Walkman is not deaf, dumb and dumb and blind to the truth like a hypocrite are hypocrites may have perfect eyesight perfect hearing may actually be very eloquent as many of them on our football. Were either a duplicate at some point in your Google the smiley cola him, when you see them, their bodies please you and when they speak, you listen attentively to their words, because they were so eloquent and delighted nobody even as a rule and others like us with machetes. And some of these leaders have them on if they will powerful,
influential, eloquent people. So they may be eloquent, but Allah calls them dumb.
They were sharp of hearing Allah calls them death. They had keen eyesight, very observant, various cheats, Allah calls them blind. That is the sign of a hypocrite who refuses to listen, refuses to pay attention, refuses to see the truth
refuses to speak the truth and what min in his humility accepts.
These are just some of the traits of hypocrisy in sha Allah in the next session and move on to another set of verses of the Holy Quran actually from Surah Baqarah.
itself and there are other traits of hypocrisy to be found there. May Allah subhanahu wa Allah enable us to understand the words of lungs are a source of lung worldwide ecosystem. We are lawmakers amongst the true sincere believers. May Allah protect us all from the detrimental traits of hypocrisy or some of the law has seldom Allah had the he was sued in the bnm humans while he was so happy he edge Marines chronicle long shadow Allah, Allah Allah and stuff
