respected listeners we continue with the theme of the traits of hypocrisy, as detailed by Allah in the Quran
and also by the sort of loss of the law, my legal Sanlam impurities
the descriptions that we find, are primarily to do with the hypocrites at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, what they said,
what they did, how they behaved.
What was the nature of their interaction with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Muslims. That's what the Quran describes. And from that, we can glean lessons.
And we can
familiarize ourselves with the specific traits and characteristics,
words, deeds and behaviors of these Hippocrates at the time of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, so that we can protect ourselves from such behaviors and such characteristics. This is exactly what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam has warned us about.
I've been through quite a few verses. The last set of verses which we were discussing,
is a set of verses and sort of the buckler
in which Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of a Mona FIP, one hypocrites and Allah describes him in the following words I'm in a Nassima yard gibca Hola who had hated dunya we should Allah Dharma he will be here with Hassan
and there is of the people one
whose words please you in the worldly life
and he makes a lot of witness over what is in his heart. And He is the
most quarrelsome of the adversaries, most argumentative of the adversaries
way that the wilderness Sarah fill out the leaf see the fee How will you look at health or wellness?
When he turns away
he strives on Earth in the land
cause corruption there.
We look at health the oneness
and he strives to destroy land and livestock.
Allahu Allah you will facade and Allah does not like corruption.
way that Lena looked at the Lucha for the tourism bill if and when it is said to him. Feel la be wary of Allah. Arrogance and sin Caesars
fastball jahannam. So Jahannam is sufficient for him. Well, a bit salami had an evil in a boat it is. So this is the set of verses that we were discussing. We've almost completed it. I've explained most of it already. Just a quick recap, Allah tells us about the specific traits of a monarch.
his words are pleasing,
but only in respect of the dunya.
They can only benefit someone in the worldly life, but not in the afterlife. Number two, one of the twists in the meaning of Phil here to dunya in the worldly life is that his words are never
about something meaningful to do with the genre, but they are always to do with the worldly life ultimately. So even if he speaks about religion, the purpose behind him talking about religion is the dunya not been.
Because this is one of the traits of hypocrisy or math, it always gives preference to the dunya over the last what masked?
I've said repeatedly, short term benefits and gain, shallowness
superficial behavior, short sighted vision and short sightedness.
Everything is about immediate instant gratification, immediate gain.
And in order to achieve that everything is justified.
The monastic always gives preference to the dunya over the the over the Ashra. And that's what this verse says.
the other thing we've learnt about this particular set of verses which describe the traits of a monastic is that he will falsely swear in the name of Allah.
And he will claim to make a law witness of what's in his heart. So he will plead and protesters innocence and remonstrate and be very vehement and vociferous and passionate in his pleading in his pleas in his argument, not not are not argument in terms of debate, but his citing evidence to prove himself
to you, and in the process, he will cite the name of Allah he will invoke the name of Allah he will swear
in the name of Allah, He will swear oats, and all of this is just cheap talk.
Well, Assam and he is the most quarrelsome, the most argumentative of the adversaries.
resisting rejecting reacting to everything.
This is a behavior
of a monad refusing to accept
it's almost like every conversation becomes an argument. Ever every conversation becomes a foreign.
There's no tolerance, no acceptance.
No relaxation, relaxation, in the sense that the person is not relaxed.
Is not accommodating is not accepting.
Everything is a problem.
Because that's his behavior. That's his character less his attitude.
As a Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said in a hadith lated by man Buhari and others, from among many in the shell of the Allahu Arnhem
in obergurgl in another region, Illa Hill Ulladulla Huson indeed the most, one of the most detested
of the men of people
in the sight of Allah is a dual Huson the most argumentative quarrelsome
another thing which we learn from this set of verses about the traits of the Mona this particular one outfit and hypocrite is that
he were x you see everyone sorry, Leah Sarah fill up, what we're starting to fill out of meaning, he strives in the land, that the meaning of striving in the land is this to do with Sorry, sorry, means walk,
moving, walking rapidly
hastening This is why in hygiene Amara.
perform circuits between the Hilux of suffer and medulla
and this the circuits between suffer and medulla are known as certain
because savvy means to move rapidly, to walk quickly or even to run to hasten. Allah says
Isn't the Quran in surah Jamar? Yeah you hola Dina. Either knew the salah to me yo mil Gemma artifice, Illa. Allah, or believers when the call is given for Friday the pray on Friday, then for sorrow Illa Vickery Allah,
Make your way quickly haste
to the remembrance of Allah on the meaning the remembrance of Allah here is the hotbed of Jamara. So originally say, means to hasten to walk quickly, to move quickly, to run Eve.
And what certainly needs in this context and in the context of other Hadith and even verses
such as the verse in which Allah says in the Saturday Akula, set leadership in the Saturday, I mean, sort of too late. In the Saturday, a coalition
that you're striving is diverse, so originally certainly doesn't mean striving, it means to move quickly. So what sorry, originally means. And all of these, in the context of these verses and a hadith is that every one of us moves, we get up in the morning, we rise, we make an effort,
we do something.
So someone's someone gets up in the morning, and
earns their living.
Of course, everybody earns a living,
or at least something to that effect. But along with their normal, routine, daily life, everyone's always doing something. So some people get up in the morning to make the world better, to make other people's lives better, to help people to assist people
to bring good joy, happiness, comfort, pleasure in other people's lives to
that's their effort.
So the meaning of sorry, in the context of these verses, is the effort that a person makes on a daily basis. So they will now affect Allah says
Sarah, Phil, he says he, he moves in the land.
When he moves, when he gets up every day, when he makes his efforts,
when he endeavors to do something, what is it? What's his effort? What's his daily routine? What's his normal perceived, what does he perceive?
So the pursuit of the monarchy is not
to bring about good, but rather to cause corruption.
The pursuit of the monarchy, the efforts of the one outfit is always is invariably
to spoil things, because that's the original meaning of facade,
to spoil things, to corrupt, to contaminate to hurt,
never to do good, because that's the nature of the mafia.
And Allah does not like corruption law does not like spoiling law does not like sin in any formal love, like.
The final thing that we learn from this set of verses about the monad is that we that feeling that the law when it is said to him feel law, or the tiller is it will Ethem arrogancy sin ceases.
Now, I've already explained this,
on numerous occasions in various ways. But
I must say, this point can never be overemphasized. This is so crucial. This is one of the most subtle
and insidious characteristics of hypocrisy that can creep into us.
Because it's so common, which is
when we are correct.
We react in anger, we reject the advice. We refuse to accept the correction. We resist
And we insist on being right. And we offer very contorted, convoluted arguments and arguments and reasons to prove ourselves to be true and innocent.
And it's embarrassing
for an onlooker.
For someone else listening for a third party, it's truly embarrassing. It's cringe worthy, others will cringe at our attempts to justify our behavior, yet we feel no shame.
strange, because the amount of effort that's required, the energy that's expended in doing so,
the cost to our emotions, our trustworthiness, our image in the sight of others,
the cost to
the trust that people hold in is the cost to our relationships, our friendships.
Not an iota of this cost is worth it.
It's too high a price to pay, it's actually cheaper, it's simpler for a person to put up their hand and say, I'm wrong. I'm sorry.
If we are advised, and the person is not the victim, so we don't have to apologize to them. We accept and we say, you are right.
And wrong in this. Help me, advise me, assist me, remind me
it's actually cheaper.
To do that requires less energy.
Very cheap price to pay no price to pay at all. In fact,
the opposite roots of resistance and justification and refusal to accept
has such a high price both in the eyes of the creation and even with the Creator.
I've mentioned before
sorry, saying sorry, apologizing is judo.
One of the core concepts of Judo is that you use the other person's strength against.
So, unique amongst all the
martial arts disciplines, the principle of Judo is that you do not
have to use your own force and your own strength as much as possible. All you do is use the aggression and the strength and the momentum of your opponent's against.
So, he comes rushing out one of the most famous moves of Judo is he comes rushing action, rather than stand there and resist.
All you do is at the last minute you twist and turn and using your crackle him you grab his arm and using his own momentum, you swing him
and throw him have
and all it requires from us no resistance, no resistance whatsoever. In fact, resistance is harmful on this occasion. All it requires from you is some dexterity and twisting and turning at the right moment and it can be done quite gracefully.
So saying sorry. Apologizing is emotional, verbal judo.
You you if someone's angry because you've you've wronged someone.
They react in anger.
They become angry. They become aggressive. They choose to argue with you.
There's a lot of pent up anger, frustration and aggression and heat.
An energy that's been dissipated all against you all directed at you.
If you say sorry,
because Subhan Allah, even our sorry, at times, even our apology is insincere. In fact, it's a tort.
And what we suggest in our apology is that
Is the person
is it wrong to feel
insulted or offended?
So sometimes the way some people apologizes
alright then alright sorry.
That's an insult, but a sincere apology.
It disarms the other person. It leaves them without arguments. It leaves them without evidence.
What can they do? What should they do?
If they continue to be angry if they continue to vent their anger and cease with rage, then you've disarmed them.
They have no proof, no evidence now her general argument against you. You've sincerely apologized. You've made amends. All their anger is now directed at themselves.
They are hurting no one but themselves.
So it's natural to get angry. It's human to get angry, but it's devilish to refuse someone's apology.
This is why Imam Shafi ravintola healer used to say, Well, it's been quoted from him. ministerial lib Philomela blurb for Hema.
Woman historically from Yahoo for whoever shaped lung,
that whoever is provoked,
and then he doesn't become angry. So if someone's genuinely provoked, and he doesn't become angry, then that person's a dunk.
But if someone's forgiveness is sought, and they refuse to forgive, then that person's devil.
So it's natural to become angry, fine.
As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained in the Hadith, there are four different people when it comes to anger. Someone who becomes angry late, and whose anger subsides early, that person's best.
Someone whose anger
arrives quickly, so the person is angered very easily, and their anger subsides. With great delay, this person is the worst.
So they are quick to anger. Late to calm down. They the worst, the best is someone who's late to anger quick to calm down.
And then the other two in between are equal. Who are they? Someone who is quick to anger but also quick to calm down with someone whose anger comes up delay but who's
forgiveness and whose subsiding of their anger also comes with some delay. These two aren't in between and they are equal.
So it's natural to become angry.
But what we need to do is
look at aware become introspective.
realize, Okay, I've become angry. Fine.
I can control it.
One of the greatest lessons you know sometimes the speed what's the benefits of this be?
Powerless Han Allah Subhana Allah Subhan Allah Allah but Allah but Allah Allah, they like any this be repetition.
It's the hood Allah stuff at last, I feel like repetition.
Repetition, hammers the message home.
So in Asian languages,
if someone repeats something frequently, we call it this B.
So he may not be remembering a lot we're doing this. If someone's constantly repeating something, we call it the speed. The person's doing this, we have this the person's doing this, we have that. So a good speed is one of the few.
There are some things that we should constantly remind ourselves
and one of them is
when ever you find yourself in a situation, learn to repeat this to yourself. Don't make it worse. Simple. Three words.
Or four Don't make it worse.
memorize to despair of it.
And when you're in a situation,
repeat to yourself, remind yourself mentally, don't make it worse.
Simple, it could be anything.
You've seen something that makes you angry, fine. Anger is natural. But realize that you've become angry. Now, what do you do? Islam doesn't tell us nowhere in between does it say that? Well, actually, what the Quran and that hadith tells us
is that you can't eradicate anger, anger is human.
So we will naturally become angry.
What then tells us is to control that
and to ensure that you do not act on the dictates of that.
Because that's volume.
If you react disproportionately, you will be guilty of injustice, of aggression, of the
so maybe the anger is justified, but the subsequent steps that you take may not be justified. And when a person becomes angry, one's mind, one's judgment, one's cognition or become clouded. person doesn't think straight.
like a man was angry. He was arguing with some Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and the Sahaba or the love and we're watching from a distance and listening to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the Companions around him, I know a word which if this person says
will dispel his anger
are all the below him in a shade long regime?
So one of the people who was with Rasul Allah, Allah, Allah Hardy, who is cinnamon, who heard him saying that
went over and told that man, that there is something which if you sin,
your anger will disappear, you will dispel your anger say a little bit Allah him in a shape on the regime.
Now because the person was angry,
this is a good description of what either de la who took the law to Larissa Tamil if, when it's said to him, fear Allah, arrogance and sin seizes him. This is why the old man say most likely this person was on one outfit.
Because when the advice of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam was given to him that look you're angry, but say one thing which if you will utter will dispel your anger, which is our although bIllahi min a shape la nuit regime. I seek refuge in Allah and protection, I seek the protection of Allah from the accursed devil.
What did the man do?
He reacted, he rejected, he resisted.
All that we have just been discussing, and what was his response? He said, Do you see that there is a shape on with me?
And in one narration, do you think that I am mad? Do you see madness in me? Why he said that is because the idea was that are you suggesting to me that I see I should see protection from the devil?
Because I am mad and the devil has caused Junoon and madness in
and one narration Dec che but you see a devil with me. So he told me rejected the advice. And that advice came from Prasad, Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam, this is what anger does. So in any situation, learn to repeat to yourself, remind yourself, don't make it worse, which is the equivalent of bits that's a bit longer, which is
when you're in the hole, don't dig deeper.
When you're in a hole, don't dig deep.
So the abbreviated version is don't make it worse.
So to become angry is natural, and I was talking about apologize.
it's natural to become angry. But when someone apologizes, then one should accept that apology.
And going back to the verse when it is said to him feel love, arrogance and sin ceases themselves
are saying it we can't ever over emphasize this point, we need to learn humility. We need to learn acceptance. We need to remind ourselves constantly that I am not perfect, I am far from perfect. I am in need of help of reform of assistance.
to better myself, and anyone who sincerely offers that
should be acknowledged, appreciated, and thanks.
Anyone who can help me become better
be of some someone's resisting and rejecting and react,
then we'll law he that person is beyond the help. This is why Watson, what's the next word? What are the next words in the verse? What are the next words? Allah says, What when it's a set to this one out of fear Allah, what happened? What's his reaction a little is to be arrogance and the sin ceases.
A person becomes refuses to accept, I remember relating that once when we were young, was a group of us children. We
there was there was a man.
We confronted him as a group because he had done something or was attempting to do something quite horrendous.
So because we were children, we were a group of children. So the whole group of as we confronted him,
and he had a beard and fold
so he said to him,
why did he do that?
So his reaction was
How dare you speak to me? Without respect? Don't you realize who I am? Look how young you are, look how old I am. Show some respect. How dare you talk to me so disrespectfully, Subhan Allah.
In a flash in a switch, he tried to twist and change and divert the whole conversation from his sin, and from his horrendous behavior, to our guilt from his guilt to elegant, and what was our guilt? What was our sin? What was our cry?
Our crime was, in his view, that we were disrespectful. We weren't talking to him respectfully.
I'm not saying he's gonna remember I've told you before I told you before, we cannot identify any individual as a monarch. These lessons are for us.
But we fear such behavior, because this has been identified as the behavior of him as a behavior and a trait of hip hop's.
Which is refusal to accept when someone tells us fear Allah. In fact, that's what we told him.
We said to him, we fear Allah.
And his reaction was, how dare you speak to me so disrespectfully?
So arrogance in sin seizes a purse person, this is a good example. When someone tells us we become indignant with anger, we refuse to accept.
We are more concerned about the fact not that we violated someone else's rights.
Not that we contravene the Command of Allah
we're not concerned about that. We're more concerned about the fact that by someone telling us our ego is pricked.
So we react in anger, such a person is beyond the help. This is why the next words are when it is said to him feel lar be wary of Allah arrogance and sin Caesars em. For hospitable Jehan. So Jahannam is sufficient for
there's no redemption for such a person.
Allah Himself says, first of all,
what can you do?
If someone is being
corrupt and sinful
and you then advise them not to be corrupt, not to be sinful, not to be hurtful not to do what they are doing.
Instead of listening and accepting, they then come
pound, that corruption and that sin
without guns, so they add arrogance
and defiance and resistance. So what can you do?
That's why Allah says for high school gentlemen
well a bit send me have an evil in a boat it's. So anyway, these are some of the traits. I'll end with this because I've covered this in two, three weeks.
There is one more verse, the next verse, which I recited last week as well.
It's not to do with hypocrisy.
It's not to do with a monarchy.
But it's actually in the same context. It's a contrasting verse
is to do with ima instead of NIFA.
And it's to do with a motmot instead of Amana.
And it's a beautiful comparison because earlier on Allah said, women and Nassima you RJ mocha polo
and of the people that is one whose words please use the word and then Allah begins this description of the Mona.
Here in the next verse, Allah says,
Woman and nurse Eman and of the people there is one. So earlier on Allah said of the people, that is one whose words please you in the worldly life in here, Allah says, and of the people that is one who does want ministry enough so
one of the people that is one who sells his soul seeking the pleasure of
Allah, we're all from the labor and Allah his Most Compassionate with the believers with the set.
So, as I said, these verses all deal with hypocrites at the time of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam primarily. So this verse, does it deal with a mock Minh primarily according to many narrations? Yes, it does. It was revealed about Sahib Sinan, a Rumi of the Allaha
not sure I saw haip famous how have you read the hola horn and
often people like to mention
Bill below the Abyssinian
some man will Farsi still man the Persian
Sahiba Rumi, Sahib the row
this is the same. So hey, Romeo, the alarm Arne Sohaib around and however
just one or two points of interest, so a bit of the hola horn was not rolling. So among five Cetyl, the Lavon was perishing.
He was genuinely a purge.
Milan the Lavon was genuinely and ever singing. So hey, what are the hola horn was not a row?
It's common misconception.
He was actually an owl.
he was born and he was from the area of Mosul in Iraq.
His parents, his father or his uncle, a members of his family were high ranking employees and civil servants in the Persian Empire.
And in those days,
I've mentioned this in detail before the Persians and the Byzantine Romans were engaged in a multi generation war.
And so there will be constant raids in each other's territory.
numerous battles and in fact, when Allah says in the Quran, the whole Surah Surah to room has been named after the after the beginning verse le flam mean woody but the room Ali flam mean the Romans have been vanquished. So this is a reference to one of those key
decisive major battles between the long running feud
in the long running feud and war between Persia and Byzantine wrong
that the Quran is referring to in which the Persians were victorious. So, because Sahib are the loved ones family members were civil servants, and high ranking employees of the Persian Empire. And not only that, but
that region fell under the Persian Empire anyway. So in one of those raids from the Byzantine Romans and their vassals, so hated the Lavon was captured as a child, and he was taken away as a captive to Byzantine Rome. And he grew up there. So he actually
became fluent in Greek. And this is another important point.
In men in the Hadith, and in the Quran, whenever we speak of room like cauliflower meme Kalibata room, the Romans have been vanquished
and the word of Rumi
which would suggest Latin, the language of the Romans, however,
we're now talking about the Byzantine Roman Empire.
Not the original
Latin Roman Empire of Italy.
This was the later generation
rather than Latin, Greek was the dominant language. So strangely, although it's called a Rumia.
What's meant is Greek.
And this is why some of the earlier non Muslim translators like the European well as many of the European translators and orientalist, when they would translate the Quran they would normally translate a flam meme holy but the room with the words as Ali flam mean the Greeks have been vanquished, not the Romans. So even though they were the Byzantine Romans, their language and their culture was predominantly Greek. Their philosophy was Hellas Hellenistic
Greek philosophy, the language and culture was Greek. So So Hebrew, the Lavon grew up,
becoming fluent in Greek.
And then, according to some reports, he was then sold and taken as a slave and captive to Makoto macaron.
According some reports, he fled and ended up in Makkah either way, he saw Hey, what are the hola Han was captured as a as an Arab child, and brought up in the Greek language and culture of Byzantine Rome. And then eventually, he ended up in Makkah, thermocol, Rama,
eventually as a free man,
because he was fluent in Greek. And according to reports, he because he was deprived of the Arabic language for such a long time, he actually spoke Arabic with an accent. So So Hebrew, the alarm was a born native Allen
because he had spent considerable time in the Greek language and culture in the Byzantine Roman Empire as a captive, his Arabic suffered, He became fluent in Greek. And he actually then spoke Arabic with an accent.
this is why he was called Sahiba Rumi Sahib, the Rome so remarkable Companion of the Allah. And this is Allah speaks up in this verse. So So hey, the Lavon was not ethnically a Roman, he was considered a Roman because he was fluent in Greek. And he had grown up as a captive in the Byzantine Roman Empire, which was predominantly Greek and language and culture.
So So Haber, roomier the Allahu Allah and when he ended up in muckety, Muck Corona, he was there even before the revelation of the Quran. And this is why he himself says, that I used to associate with and keep the company of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, even before he received the revelation of the quarter. It was his friend from before.
And then when sort of lots of the Law Legal sudden proclaimed Islam
One of the very first people to embrace was Sahiba, O'Meara the
because he had no family.
He was alone. He was also one of those who was taught, along with Bilal, the Allah, amount of money, acid hubbub
the alarm which meant he was also one of those who was taught. So eventually he fled microtrauma Corona, and did he
not now, in Makkah, he spent his life as a Freeman as a Freeman, not as a slave.
As a result of which he engaged in trade, and he amassed a considerable amount of money. Not he wasn't extremely wealthy, compared to the other individuals of Mecca of someone who had come along. He had made a fortune for himself, he had made sufficient wealth.
So when he left Makarem karma to do hijra, he didn't carry any of it with him.
The Rage pursued him, and eventually they caught up with him.
And he was alone.
So the grayish bounty hunters and others who are with them, when they caught Sahiba, or the alarm man, he, this resulted in a confrontation at a distance.
They called out to him and they said, also, Hey,
you came to Makkah penniless
And now you leave Makkah with your wealth. How can that be?
We will not allow you to go.
So Hebrew, the Allahu he was a
he was a brilliant arch.
So he removed his quiver, and laid out his arrows from his quiver in front of him. And then he said to the orange, he said, Oh Quraysh, you know,
that I am one of the most skilled archers amongst you.
I do not care.
I will fight you to my last era.
So you have a choice, either fight me, and I will die fighting you, but I will fight you to my last hour.
Or if you're interested in my wealth, and I haven't brought any of it with me, I've buried my treasures and I've hidden them.
So if you want
I can reveal to you and disclose to you the location of all my wealth, secret wealth, and my hidden treasures. And all my wealth is yours. You can have my wealth as long as you leave me to continue with my immigration and to my destination of Medina.
So the Quran said fine, tell us where your wealth is. So So hey, what are the Allahu Allah and revealed to them
the secret location of every single dyrham of his wealth.
He did not withhold the single thing. So they let him go. So he brought the Allah who
arrived in Medina.
When he arrived, he met some of the Sahaba the Allahu Anhu in the lava tract,
just outside the city, or some of the settlements.
And when he met some of the Sahaba, or the Allahu anhu, they said to him, they'd be held by Maria. So Hey, Robbie held by
your trade was profitable, also hate your trade was profitable. So what's the meaning of this? So they took him to Rasul Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam, and he said to him, I'd be held by or Yeah, so hey, but also Hey, your trade was profitable and according similar agency repeat this. Your trade was profitable, your trade was profitable, meaning he had given over all of his wealth, sold his life savings and possessions and earnings, just so that he could still earn the pleasure of law by completing his Hijra and being with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is what the reference of the verse is, according to many scholars, woman and NAS in ministry and if so hope the
robotic Allah, and of the people, there is one who sells his soul seeking the pleasure of Allah. And Allah is Most Compassionate with the servants. So this set of verses mentioned to people, of the people that is one whose words please you in the worldly life, and he makes a lot more witness over what's in his heart, and He is the most quarrel some of the adversaries, that is the one outfit, and of the people that and then the verses continue. I've covered them in detail, and later, and of the people that is one who sells his soul seeking the pleasure of Allah. And Allah is Most Compassionate with the servants. And this is the
so here we are some of the traits of nofap. And some of the traits of Eman. Some of the characteristics and behaviors of homeownership of the hypocrites are never true.
And will now if it gives priority to the dunya over the mean, and what mean gives priority to the dean of Adonia.
And when Asik has a very short term vision, he suffers from myopia short sightedness when it comes to the dean.
And what min is far side
and what means glance and what means gaze and what means sight is fixed on that.
And what I'm gonna fix, only see short term benefits, instant gratification
of the ultimate consequences, and what men only sees the long term, goal and object
regardless of the short term discomfort or suffering
in fact, so he broke the law he was so highly regarded that when I would have adopted the law one
and he was stamped in front of Salah whilst leading the Muslims.
And then he was taken away.
And then he knew that these were his last moments on Earth
a towering man in status and stature
he overwhelmed everyone.
He filled people's minds and hearts with fear with all that was already modeled the hola
everyone addressed him as a medium what we need but such humility when he lay there bleeding and the people around and realized
that he will not survive and he realized that he will not survive. Someone addressed him as Ameerul Momineen he said Do not call me immune from what we need. For this day I am no longer that Amin of the believers
such any minute
on that occasion
he did a little bit of mouth off and another yarn in Oregon tomorrow from messing around in Monaco he enjoying the good and forbid the forbade the evil. As he was lying there, someone came in a young man. And as he was leaving, the young man was leaving a model the loved one saw that his cloth was hanging below his ankles in that state on his deathbed
and modeled the Allaha. And in that state of weakness, he called out to him. And he said yeah, well ittefaq Is Arctic for India who unclearly phobic wildcard Arabic. He said Oh young lad. Ratio is our ratio cloth, for it is cleaner for your cloth more fearing for your lot. On his deathbed, what sees bleeding to death
in such pain,
and in the subdued voice, he's still enjoying the good and for the for baby.
Furthermore, model the alarm
when he realized that he was no longer he wasn't going to survive. And he then convened a Consultative Committee to decide amongst themselves, who will be the leader of the believers after him. So he appointed six and he said you shall decide amongst yourselves and he shall be one of you six. He also told them spamela That Abdullah had normal my son Abdullah will join you in that committee.
But he cannot be select Allah, such force such fear of Allah. Not a hint, not a whiff of nepotism that Abdullah will join you Why did he say Abdullah will join you? Oh my god Allah arm was a man
who was visionary who was highly intelligent, who was ahead of his age in every way, and who treated people as they should be treated. So his Consultative Committee throughout his life included young men, including teenagers, Abdullah Hackman bounds of the law when
he recognized people's worth, he knew that if someone had qualities,
then they should be accepted irrespective of their age, because that was a reflection of himself, because a lot of the love and he was actually part of the Senate and the Assembly of Makoto Makara. In the dark nebula
even though he was a very young man,
he was extremely young. And yet he sat in the same Senate occupying a seat along with the most senior people of the Quraysh or will either bloom Lila and others
because he was a young man but extremely intelligent, far sighted a visionary, capable and wise full of wisdom and sagacity. So, what are the hola horniness, Lacey is he recognized the same wisdom
perception, knowledge and talent in in young men. So he would ensure that anyone who had that ability and talent will be part of his committee, irrespective of their age. So I'm delighted members of the Allahu anha teenager he was there, and many young men.
So he recognized that worth in his own son Abdullah have not modeled the Allah. Truly Abdullah had no little the Allah Allah was highly intelligent and capable. Not only is he one of the most prolific narrators of Hadith,
one of the most knowledgeable of the Sahaba or the Allah horn.
But many of the Sahaba will be Allah who
actually wanted him to become a believer
that Allah had no model the Allah mots, all stages resistant, he had no interest.
So I'm going to go to the lavar instead of his own son that he shall join you but he will not be appointed he will not be selected as a Khalifa. But he will join you because of his intelligence, his knowledge and his wisdom. Not a hints, not a whiff of nepotism.
So a lot of the hola Han I was speaking about Sohei bidness Inanna Rumi, he was so highly regarded. That's when a lot of the Allah who I'm convening this committee and said, You shall select the immediate and the Khalifa from Mongstad until they had not concluded their deliberations and until they have not selected Khalifa. Someone was still required to lead the salah.
Out of all of the Sahaba of the Allahu Amin and many
of the Allahu anchos Sohaib in the Santa Ana room.
He led the Sahaba of the Allah
on this adjured and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, after a book after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what could and what are the Allah when Allah it was so he Bhimsen Nana, whom you know the Allah one who led Salah until of man love the love and became
so that's how highly he was regarded but that verse has to do with him, woman and Nassima Yes, Shireen of soap developmental dieting Allah, Allah will often be a burden off the people that is one who sells his soul
seeking the pleasure of Allah
and Allah he's most compassionate with the servants.
There are many of the verses that deal with hypocrisy and the hypocrites one of the set of verses and is in sort of Ali Imran, in which Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna says Yeah, you heard the Lena Amendola a little bit one of them into Nicola Luna
What do I need them but but that will not allow for heating mama toffee so Dora Akbar but by now the kimono is in contact, you don't have to lie to hipbone to hipbone told me you want to be looked at what is Allah who are who am Anna
Allah says with a hello Abu alaykum Anamika Minella hate to be raised in Allah hiding
without the sudo in them system has an atom to so when to simply say yes to in your flat will be impossible what the old I adore okay don't shame
in Allah and my anger
Allah says Old Believers do not take
as confidence as your inner circle as your confidence
those who are not from
specifically ALLAH soprano as I said all of these verses ultimately and primarily refer to and discuss the original mana if your own and the hypocrites at the time of the prophets Allah
so, Allah has advised in the Sahaba of the Allah wherein
the Old Believers
do not take as your confidence
those who are not from
Madonna means the inner circle the interior
originally means the underlay or the inner layer
so, if you have a cloth, you've got the outer layer and if you have a second inner layer, that inner layer is known as bit longer
and the outer layer is now no they are
so the exterior and the midlaner the interior This is why in the Quran Bagua you know how Minister Barak that its interior their interiors are from silk, Brocade.
And another name for interior
and exterior. So interior is the foreigner exterior is the Hara. And a cloth originally, another name for the cloth interior is she
and the exterior is the thought.
So she is that part which
clings to the body the interior. And the reason I'm mentioning this is that this is the original meaning of the words, but later, it became used at for those who are the closest to a person. So butanna means those who are your closest your confidence, your inner circle, your best of friends, just like the third. The third means exterior and Shara is similar to Atlanta, and other unsolved the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and saw the InSAR are the DA sorry, are the shell and other people are the differ. So the unsolved are my closest they are my inner circle. So Allah says, Oh believers, do not take as your big pharma, your confidence, your inner circle, your best of
friends, those who are not from amongst you. Who were they? At the time of the prophets, Allah Allah Allah who was said to me was those who would come and pray Salah in the masjid, they would mix and mingle with the Sahaba of the Allah Han. But it would also mix and mingle with their other friends. And when they were told, Look, if you are believers, if you are with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, then why aren't you fully loyal? Why don't you disassociate yourself from the enemies of the Messenger of Allah?
What was their response?
We tried to keep it good with everyone. Good with the Messenger of Allah good with them, others as well. We trying to bring about peace and harmony and reconciliation. We are conciliatory. We are trying to bring about peace as Allah says Allah in the home of sibling well I can lie assure alone lo and behold, they verily they they are the characters. They are the spoilers, but they don't even realize. So that was that attitude.
So then, if they are mingling and mixing with others, under whatever pretext Whatever their reasons, if they are mingling and mixing
then Allah advises the Sahaba or the Allah one them that do not take them as your bislama as your inner circle as your confidence. Then Allah reveals their behavior to the Sahaba of the Allah Allah.
Allah says la luna Cunha.
They do not fall short
they spare no efforts Leia Luna can a lie on
Kabbalah facade. They do not fall short. They spare no effort in hurting and harming you
in causing mischief tea.
That's their reality. So forget their beaming smiles. Forget their grins forget their sweet words, forget their pleas and the O's in the name of Allah forget their protests, the protests of innocence. The reality is layout Luma Kabbalah, they spare no efforts in harming What do matter and
they love that which you suffer.
When you suffer,
he actually pleases them.
When you are hurt
They relish your pain and your discomfort.
That's their reality.
But that will allow me to
see the Sahaba of the law on whom they had suffered.
They had suffered. So as Allah says, Lay your head below Jarabe su immunol, Ollie inland and vodien Allah does not like open offensive speech.
except in the case of one who has been oppressed or wrong.
Someone's wrong, they will speak hands. The poor soul that's the only thing they can do.
So if a mother Moon speaks out,
if a mother News says something,
which under normal circumstances would be considered offensive and inappropriate, then truly that's not to be accepted. But if I'm a Bloom says it, it's overlooked it's excuse. So the Sahaba of the law one that suffered, so they weren't not all of them were diplomatic, all the time.
I was speaking about Sahibi from Santa Ana Rumia to the Lavon. On one occasion, in Madina, Munawwara in the seventh year of hijra, after the Treaty of Davia. When I've also fiam came to Medina to ratify the treaty, because one of the allies of the Quraysh had attacked, one of the allies of the Muslims.
And an attack
by one member of the alliance on any member of the other Alliance
resulted in a violation of the treaty of Arabia. And now the Muslims were in a very powerful position. So most of you who have not yet embraced Islam, he came to Medina, Al Madina, Munawwara, to ratify the treaty, and to plead with the Messenger of Allah to ensure that, that and to protest to him, that the Quraysh we're not aware, and we're not privy.
And we're not responsible for the plans of their allies to attack the allies of the Muslims.
And so, this violation should be disregarded and the treaty should continue as it was and be ratified. So when Abu Sufyan came to Medina,
he wants to go and speak to the prophets of Allah Almighty.
So he was Was he approached a worker of the Allah one and he was walking with Abu Bakar Allah. Allah Han was a nobleman of the Quraysh
he was very composed and calm and diplomatic.
So as he was walking with Abubaker of the love and Bilal Sohei a Rooney Bilal Habashi hubub. On Earth and others, they were seated together, as always best a friend and they saw a ball Sofia.
They were shocked, though of all Sofia in Medina. So even though he was with Abu Bakr, the Allah horn, they spoke out. They these were the ones who have been tortured so he had Burb below the Allah Marine.
So hey, they said they spoke hands, and they said, it looks like the swords of Allah have not yet found their place in the enemies of Allah.
so harsh words
so boubakeur, the Allah being diplomatic, being noble, he said to them,
The coluna hada let's say you the operation was shaking him that is this what you say to the master and the leader of the operation their elder
they went and complained to us all loss Allah Allah it was they were offended by what kind of the alarm said to them.
Allahu Akbar, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam summoned Abu Bakr, the Allah. And he said to him, oh Abu Bakr, did you say this to them? And he said, Yes, yes.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a worker. When you said this to them, perhaps you have angered them. And if you have angered them, then perhaps you have angered Allah.
So I'm working on the Allah I'm actually went and apologized. He apologized to hubub. So haibun belagavi Allah Allah.
So they, they had suffered.
So of course, they were the ones who were very staunch, they wouldn't associate with any of these people.
But other Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu being noble being diplomatic, because of their relations beforehand, especially the InSAR because they had family ties and previous diplomatic relations with various other tribes, many of whom later some of these became Muslim and others became more nathnac
So they continued with those types of loss panelboards Allah is addressing them, but do not take these people as your trustworthy friends as your inner circle as your confidence. The truth is, this is their reality layer on Kabbalah. They spare no efforts in seeking harm and hurts for you will do morality. They love that which you suffer.
But but that will be low enough where
rank hatred has poured forth from their mouths. Or my Duffy sonoro aqua and what their hearts conceal is far great.
So even though they claim that we are Muslim, this is the follow up I'm gonna have it is never stable.
Never consistent yes consistence in his inconsistency.
And when if it is consistent in his inconsistent and what men is consistent
and what means consistent.
So I'm gonna think you can never work him out because at times he will say something in your favor. And at times, he will also let slip a few things which makes you question
is the span of the jug of the heart.
So if you have a joke, you have a container you have a spout and the sprinkler.
There's a saying in amongst the Arabs that the spans can only pour what's in the container what's in the jug.
The spouts can only pour what's in the jug. And they actually use that to refer to the mouth that the mouth can only utter that which is in the heart.
no matter how much you try to control your mouth, your mouth will always reveal ultimately what's in your heart.
It will reveal
so the mouth is a greatest revealer of secrets
it can only pour forth they can only pour what's in the house is what's in the heart. So
but but the thing about the Amina for him so nerf as well even though I'm an athlete likes to keep up that
pretense, and then when AFIC likes to keep up that show and that facade and he puts on a mask.
Every now and then when the person drops their guard, something will slip out something this is the meaning of but visiting Bala Amina for him. Hatred has revealed itself from their math Alma Duffy Saddam Akbar.
And what their hearts contain is far which is far greater. So the spout pours a few drops
but they are gallons and gallons of it in the jerk.
The sprinkler sprays a bit
but the whole reservoir what's in the container in the jack
so someone's mouth
reveals hatred, know that there is a lot more there a lot more.
And this is why the mouth
is the interpreter of the heart. The mouth is a revealer of the heart. The mouth is actually the face of the heart.
It's a spokesperson for the heart. It reveals everything.
And this is why when we swear we, if you control if you clean your tongue
your hearts will become clean as well. We'll learn how these later bye mom didn't need to learn here then. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says every morning every single morning, the limbs and the organs of the body plead with the tongue and say to the tongue, it Aquila fina for inner man anaerobic for Insta companies to come now we're in here will judge their budget China they say oh Tong. Fear Allah in us fear Allah in respect of us, because we are as you are, we are by you.
We stand by you because of you. We are as you are. If you are straight, oh tongue we are straight and if you are bent, we are bent.
So the tongue can actually shape the heart.
Allah says in surah Allah has
Yeah, you're living in a Armineh Takala aku golden salida are believers. Be wary of Allah and say a straight word say an upright word.
What will be the reward of you speaking straight? What will you what will be the reward and the results and the beautiful consequence of you saying something upright and straight? We're all golden. So the there what will be the reward? You're welcome. Arma Allah, Allah will make good your deeds.
You speak good, Allah will ensure that your deeds are good.
If your tongue is straight, your deeds are straight, including your heart. If your tongue is bent and twisted, your deeds are twisted, your organs are twisted.
a hypocrites tongue will reveal a lot. This is why when people swear
it's not innocent. When a person swears it reveals a lot of filth and rots from inside that it truly does.
When a person swears no this much of that swearing that foul, filthy language that vulgarity
is not innocent.
is the steam only it's only the steam of the reservoir of filth contained beneath inside.
This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was so pure of speech and pure of heart, the Sahaba of the Allah man who describe him as let me a confession Willamette the fascia that he wasn't Vulgate in speech, nor could he vain nor could he feign or effect or simulate vulgarity, meaning, he was so pure of speech in the heart, that never would he utter any profanity. And not only that, but if he had to pretend or if he had to act, if he had to simulate profanity. He was so pure of heart and speech that he couldn't even simulate or effect. profanity or vulgarity. He couldn't do it.
That's how pure he was of hearts and speech. So the two are connected. But but the thing about that I mean, if we're him, hatred has come appeared on their tongues, from that man's and what their hearts conceal is far greater.
But be in alicona I think quantum therapy alone, Allah says indeed, we have made clear the signs for you for only you realize, these are the signs
that how can you Oh believes, consider these people, your inner circle your bedliner your trustworthy ones, your confidence.
Your friends, when they spare no effort in hurting and harming you, they associate with your enemies.
They do not share
in your grief, your grief, they do not sympathize with you in your suffering. In fact, to the contrary, they rejoice at your suffering
and you can occasionally detect there
hurtful, hateful speech.
These are the signs
they are not your friends.
So if you do understand and if you have sense and these are the signs of the analemma light and quantum Pantalone Allah then goes on to reveal more of their traits,
how to lie to him
these are such a people that you love them, but they like you not, you are good with them.
Because you are still
going by your family ties your tribal ties want and not only that, you still sympathize with them because you consider them to be believers, despite all their behavior,
but we are now revealing to you that this is their reality. So be wary of them. You love them, but they don't reciprocate that love.
You are courteous to
you like them. You show them love and compassion and mercy and affection and they repay you they reciprocate that good behavior on your part with hatred. They don't like you.
And then Allah says without me no inability to have a cold.
You should realize even though you believe in the whole book, they don't believe at all they are hypocrites. You believe in the whole book, you should be the ones realizing and actually being able to detect these signs in them
with an open bottle Armineh what either Hello Abu Ali Kamala and I'm in the middle of a wave. When they meet you they say we have believed
when they retreat into solitude and seclusion. What do they do? Abu Alikum will anatomy liminal haze, they bite their fingers seething in anger and rage against
what's the solution for them?
What's the solution for such a hypocrite who in front of you?
All love and affection
and away from you, biting their fingers seething in rage,
besides themselves in rage, what's the solution? Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, move to the right Come say die in your anger
in the long run, even without the support Indeed, indeed, Allah is well aware, all knowing of the contents of the hearts of the bosoms.
Like explains further about their shamatha their Chardon, Freud that gloating
in them Cisco hasenhuttl earlier Allah said what do mirliton they love that which you suffer light elaborate here in them Cisco has an oven they
were into sitcom say year to year for who?
If good fortune meets you
and if it will 14 Before she
they rejoice overwrites
allow me to spend one or two minutes here.
These are some of the traits of hypocrisy what lessons should we be learning from the this set of verses
as I've always said in the in the context of discussing hypocrisy, we shouldn't be sitting here trying to figure out who's a hypocrite. Now, that's not the purpose of these lists is because we can't we cannot
we do not know the state of anyone's heart.
We cannot judge
there was a man who was a drunkard
He used to drink frequently. He used to be disciplined He used to drink again. And this was at the time of the Prophet salaallah highly
religious idea to the law of armed says the Sahaba of the Allah who had nicknamed him him out because of his antics donkey used to make people laugh, but he had this one weakness he would drink at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu.
So, once when he was brought again, to have out of the Lavon began disciplining him. Someone said, How shameless is he?
Repeatedly he is brought before I saw the loss of the love it was and discipline that he doesn't desist.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually said of that person and
whilst he was being disciplined
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, what I do know of him is that he loves Allah and Israel. So
who are we to judge? So we aren't here sitting, judging
the purpose of these verses for us is not to identify hypocrites or traits or hypocrisy in others, it's actually to identify traits of hypocrisy in ourselves.
So one of the some of the lessons are a hypocrite wishes good for the believes.
Leia Luna Kabbalah a movement sorry, a hypocrite does not wish good for the believers men wishes good for the believers. A hypocrite spares no efforts in hurting and harming others. Just as Allah said in the earliest set of verses, what you that there will last and I feel older leaves the fear How will you local health the oneness, Allah allow you Hebrew facade, the efforts the endeavor, the normal practice the day to day routine of homeownership is facade spoiling and corruption hurt and harm.
A McMinn does good
la luna Kabbalah men does not is not the one who spares no effort in hurting or heart in harming or hurting others no wish good for everyone.
What do matter and
they love that which you suffer. And this is an
elaboration of that that of that sentence. In them Cisco Massanutten the Susan winter sitcom say yes, we will be when good fortune meets you. They it hurts them and when
a calamity befalls you, they rejoice Subhan Allah this is something we should focus on for a few minutes.
Don't we do this?
We can't be happy for anyone.
We are full of hassad
envy, we burn green in our envy, receive and rage.
We can't see anyone else happy. We really can't. And worse when a calamity befall someone, we smile, we laugh, we grin we gloat we rejoice. we indulge in shamatha Chardon, Freud.
I say shaldon Freud too, because shamatha this in Arabic shamatha is alpha,
being pleased and rejoicing over the calamity and misfortune and suffering of an enemy.
In reality, there is no single word in the English language that translates or describes the word shamatha. So even in English, it's part of the English language now, but it's an it's German import. So the word is actually German Chardon, Freud. So it's part of the English language. So the German import
maybe after the end of this month, we shouldn't be using it, Brexit. So hey.
So Shalgam Freud,
rejoicing over the suffering of others. In fact, in German Chardon means suffering and Freud means joy. So the joy of suffering, someone else's suffering.
That's what shamatha is. And Mr. Muslim and others all relates to how the from the sort of loss and the love it comes from that one of his frequent do as was.
He used to seek a loss protection, Min shamatha till either from the gloating, the rejoicing and the Shildon Freud and the shamatha of the enemies even Rasul Allah Subhan, Allah might equal some seek Allah's protection from that. So don't we do that? We can't be happy for anyone else and love a bit of someone else suffers a misfortune or a calamity. We rejoice, we feel happy.
These words, should they be describing us or should they or are they actually describing them when I clean the hypocrites? In them Cisco has an attempt to sue them. If good fortune means she hurts them.
And if a calamity befalls you, they rejoice that it
is Allah describing them on Earth for all at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Allah described
