Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh everyone welcome to Episode Seven moments with the Quran. So Han Allah almost a week of Ramadan has gone by Allah subhanho wa Taala except what has passed and bless what remains mean. Today we take an ayah from Surah to married I am number eight, in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you
COO, coo coo,
COO, coo coo up ora Bullitt.
What law, no law hubiera be mad Malou Subhana Allah Allah in this ayah addresses the believers, and he commands the believers towards standing upright persistently for Allah subhanho wa Taala with this witnesses injustice, witnesses injustice, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us against letting the hatred and enmity of a people towards us cause us to lack diligence with our testimony, we may witness something, and our testimony is vital, in terms of justice standing, but because through our testimony, we might support a person that hates us, it might cause us to swerve off the path of justice, it might cause us to like diligence, with the concept of justice, Allah subhanho wa
Taala warns us and Allah, his allies, hubiera, Allah is aware of the hidden matters, the matters in your heart, the matters in your mind that nobody knows, right? those matters, that are motives behind why you do something and you don't something or don't do something, Allah subhanho wa Taala is aware of all these things.
So here, brothers and sisters in Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala lays down boundaries for us that he has people may act in a way that causes us to become upset, that even may cause us to dislike them. And if you dislike someone in your heart, for reasons, then you're not accountable for this, because this is human nature. But Allah will hold you accountable for what you do as a result of what you feel. It doesn't mean you feel something. So now everything you do is correct, because you feel it now, Islam governs what's right, and what's wrong, irrespective of your feelings. So you might rightfully feel hurt because of the enmity of people towards you. And we know this idea came down
when the Quraysh were big enemies and haters of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and his message and their companions to the extent that they blocked them from the carrabba. They blocked them from mosquito harem. But despite this, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands the believers to be just and this is from taco as Allah tells us in this ayah and we are in a month of taqwa Subhana Allah, and in my training as a judge over three years in my master's program, Subhana, Allah, this ayah would come up time and time again, in both the ethical side of judicial training, as well as the fundamental side of our judicial training. It's such an important area, and it constitutes an
important value in several areas of our lives. But I want to take this further brothers and sisters in Islam, and into a discussion related to the concept of warfare. And that is the concept of fulfillments panela. whereby a site of testimony, right, we act in a way whereby we give everything and everyone they do they have their right, irrespective of what they do to us, sometimes upon a law, we may be friends with someone who have a good relationship with someone, and they do amazing things. And these things become a means for us. But then later on, one thing was the other happens, and this enmity comes between us and them, or between them and us, right. And then as Subhanallah we
move on with our lives, and they move on with their lives. But does this mean we should now cancel out our memories of all the good things they did before this turbulence happened between us? Right, whereby Subhanallah we might achieve something now and we've achieved it, because of them being a means after Allah subhanho wa Taala then when we achieved this something now, should we say no, we don't want to thank them, we're not going to acknowledge them. We're not going to make draft for them, they deserve nothing because of the current behavior or should we say Subhanallah the current behavior is unfortunate the current circumstance is unfortunate, but justice maintains that we give
everything and everyone there right and we have to acknowledge Subhana Allah that these peoples upon a lower means for us back then irrespective of the situation now but so Pamela, then what they did, Pamela has benefited me today. I need to make dua for them. I need to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for what they did and ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bless them. This is what our brothers and sisters in Islam and it's a form of being diligent in terms of testifying to realities. Right. All right. It's not related to the the the primary mandate of what testing
Find and, and and providing
witness testimony means right however this panel at the Quran advises us to one thing but the current meanings are broad, and it encompasses a plethora of different angles and meanings from them this brothers and sisters in Islam, this concept of water for this concept of being a person of fulfillment and giving everybody you know, they do some kind of like irrespective of what the circumstance and situation is, and we see this parallel with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He loved his companions but Abu Bakar had the status and he gave a boubakeur is jus for what Abubakar did. No one can be equal to Abu Bakar, he gave the people of better a status that others
didn't have those who accepted Islam after but that cannot be the same as those who accepted Islam. before the Battle of better Subhan. Allah He gave everyone they have the right the view. This is a large topic brothers and sisters in Islam, and our time has come to an end. However, the lesson is one of being just always irrespective of people's circumstances towards us. And the lesson also is to be people of fulfillment to give everything it's, it's right. And it's due, irrespective of people's behavior towards us. Irrespective of circumstances people may forget. But that doesn't mean we should forget. That is the student of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is closer to
taqwa in a month that assists us towards achieving of Tukwila view for the sake of Allah until next time, Sonnambula aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
